FTSE 100 crash: 3 steps I’d take to get rich and retire early as the stock market recovers The FTSE 100 crash may have caused some to become wary about investing in the stock market to build a retirement nest egg. However, the index has a strong track record of recovery. And that could make now the right time to buy a diverse range of businesses, and hold them for the long run.With many companies trading on low valuations, the capital growth potential of the index seems to be high. As such, it could help to improve your financial prospects and may even increase your chances of retiring early.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Buy-and-hold strategyThe FTSE 100 may have experienced a rebound following its market crash, but it’s unlikely to produce smooth returns over the coming months. Numerous risks face the world economy, such as the prospect of a spike in coronavirus cases and geopolitical uncertainty surrounding the relationship between the US and China.As such, investors should be prepared for further difficult periods for the stock market over the medium term. Holding stocks throughout such periods, rather than selling them, could prove to be a profitable strategy. Over the long run, high-quality companies are likely to overcome factors such as weak investor sentiment and slow profit growth to post high returns for patient investors.FTSE 100 diversificationAt the present time, many FTSE 100 industries face futures that are difficult to forecast. It’s unclear how consumer behaviour will have changed following the coronavirus pandemic, if indeed it’s changed at all. This may make it difficult for many companies to find the right growth strategies to pursue over the coming years.Therefore, diversifying across a wide range of sectors and businesses could prove to be a shrewd move. Diversification will reduce risk, since you’ll be less reliant on a small number of companies for your returns. It could also allow you to capitalise on the growth potential of a wider range of businesses than would normally be the case. This could boost your returns and improve your retirement prospects.Reinvesting dividendsA large number of FTSE 100 stocks have reduced their dividends over recent months in response to uncertain operating conditions. As the economic outlook improves, many of them are likely to reinstate their shareholder payouts and return to dividend growth.It may be tempting to spend the dividends produced by your portfolio at a time when other income-producing assets, such as bonds, offer low returns. But, in the long run, reinvesting dividends is likely to be far more profitable. It will allow compounding to have a larger impact on your portfolio, which could increase its size and make it easier to generate a passive income in retirement. This could bring your retirement date a step closer and improve your financial outlook in older age. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter When you go grocery shopping you may be accustomed to choosing the best foods for you by reading the nutrition label. You know how to find the calories, fat grams, carbs, sugars and so on in the foods you buy. But what about your dog’s food? Do you know how to read the nutrition label on your dog’s food?Don’t worry if you aren’t sure where to start when deciphering your pup’s nutrition labels. We’ve got some great advice.1. Make sure there is actual meat in the food.Real meat will be written as ‘Duck’ or ‘de-boned duck,’ which means that true meat was used as a raw ingredient. A meat source should also be one of the first few ingredients, preferably the first.2. Ingredient List Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Just like with human food, the ingredients are listed according to the percentage of the food that they compose.Your dog’s food should have quality meat and produce sources toward the top of the list. If your dog does well with grains, those should be toward the middle. Even a food containing grain should have a larger percentage of meat than grain to make it a quality food. Another example is onion which, in any type – fresh dehydrated or even powdered – may be harmful for your pet.3. Be wary of ingredients that are ambiguousSuch as:animal fatanimal mealanimal by-product; chicken by-productIf the meat source is not specific, it likely has not come from a quality source. Avoid ingredients like wheat, corn, or soy – these are fillers that add no nutritional value to a dogs diet and are often sources of food allergies and inflammation.4. BalanceEvery dog is different; therefore, their dietary needs are different. Kessinger says it’s a great idea to ask your vet what protein and fat percentages are recommended for your dog.Dogs that are extremely active may do better with higher protein, and dogs who have illnesses like pancreatitis may require monitored fat levels. Being aware of the makeup of your dog’s food can help maintain lifetime wellness.If you have health concerns about your dog, consult your veterinarian.

On the one hand, the day area, in contact with the land, is defined through a heavy wall structure. On the other hand, the night area, elevated from the plot, is conceived with a light construction system and a porticoed structure that stands on top of the basement/parking.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe stepped shape of the day area defines the program without the need of dividing the space with walls, thus ensuring visuals from one side to the other. There is also a clear hierarchy in the spaces’ size, in order to define the different uses: study – dining room – kitchen – living room (from small to big).

Players have to collect six cups of coffee for their office colleagues from the local coffee shop but “watch those chuggers!”.It is surprising to see another charity sector organisation using the word ‘chugger’, especially in a humorous sense.

The University of Exeter Medical School has received significant philanthropic support including the £10 million donated by the Dennis and Mireille Gillings Foundation, which was for developments that will include a state-of-the-art neuroimaging centre, currently under construction at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.Professor Clive Ballard, Pro Vice-Chancellor of the Medical School said: “Philanthropic support is crucial for us to continue our research into life-altering conditions such as cancer, diabetes and dementia. Thanks to the generosity of alumni and supporters, we have been able to fund critical projects that develop better treatments and increase understanding of how we can prevent the on-set of some of these diseases. Philanthropy has also been of enormous benefit in developing opportunities within our educational programme, in particular giving new opportunities to students from less advantaged backgrounds.”Dr Shaun Curtis, Director of Global Advancement at the University of Exeter said: Advertisement [youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6iPaZSDPDM[/youtube] Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy higher education 762 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

A rally was held on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus on Aug. 27 to show solidarity in the face of fascism and white supremacy. Columbus United Against Hate called the action.Over one hundred socialists, communists and other central Ohio activists, including members of Anti-Racist Action, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), Democratic Socialists of America, the Green Party, the International Socialist Organization, Planned Parenthood, Socialist Alternative, SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) and Workers World Party, gathered in front of the Thompson Library.

Saudi Arabia is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. News Launched on Safer Internet Day (9 February), the #SaferArabicInternet campaign suggests a concern for online security that is not borne out by Google’s announcement on 21 December that it is including Saudi Arabia in the three new regions of the world into which it is extending its network of data centres. Receive email alerts The move into Saudi Arabia was the result of an agreement reached earlier in December with the Saudi petroleum giant Aramco after two years of talks. An initial memorandum of understanding on joint exploration of the possibility of locating new cloud services in Saudi Arabia had been announced in 2018. Fabrice COFFRINI / AFP News Saudi ArabiaUnited StatesMiddle East – North Africa Americas Online freedomsProtecting sources Internet Saudi Arabia is also suspected of repeatedly using spyware to monitor dissidents. On 20 December, Citizen Lab reported that operatives probably linked to the governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had used NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware to hack into a total of 36 personal phones belonging to journalists, producers, anchors, and executives at Al Jazeera, and the personal phone of Rania Dridi, a journalist at London-based Al Araby TV. Nonetheless, after journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018, Google was one of the leading digital companies to distance itself from Saudi Arabia by withdrawing from a conference for investors organized in Riyadh. So, RSF is surprised by its decision to extend into Saudi Arabia now and urges Google to ensure that data is protected from Saudi government surveillance. WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Saudi Arabia has conducted several surveillance operations targeting journalists in recent years. In November 2019, the US justice department charged two Twitter employees with providing the Saudi government with sensitive information about its opponents. The 6,000 Twitter accounts accessed in the course of this espionage operation in late 2014 and early 2015 included that of Omar Abudlaziz, a dissident journalists close to Khashoggi.

We call on Google to establish sufficient safeguards for the protection of user data in order to prevent the government from exploiting this situation to reinforce its ability to spy on and silence dissidents.” Follow the news on Middle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information News RSF_en to go further In a report published on 22 January, David Kaye, the UN special rapporteur on freedom of expression, and Agnès Callamard, the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary killings, said they had information indicating that a WhatsApp account belonging to the Saudi crown prince had deployed spyware enabling surveillance of Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos’s phone with the aim of influencing or silencing the newspaper’s coverage of Saudi Arabia. News As Google conducts a week-long campaign to make Internet users in the Middle East and North Africa more aware of the need to protect their privacy and personal data, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the tech giant’s recent decision to extend its network of data centres into Saudi Arabia, in a project that puts business interests before protecting human rights.
