Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The recent market turbulence has sent investors running for cover. Safe havens, such as gold and Bitcoin, have been in demand. However, rather than rushing to buy one of these assets, I’m putting my money in the FTSE 250 instead.Buying the FTSE 250The problem with both gold and Bitcoin is the fact these are speculative investments. They’re only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for them. What’s more, it costs a lot to own these assets. Storage costs, as well as transaction fees, can amount to several percentage points of value every year.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…You can reduce costs by owning gold and Bitcoin through funds. But what’s the point of owning a safe haven if you’re relying on someone else to manage it for you?Meanwhile, the FTSE 250 could be a much more attractive investment over the long run.Higher returnsSince its inception three-and-a-half decades ago, the index has returned around 10% per annum for investors. That’s far more than gold. Bitcoin has outperformed the index, but that’s only thanks to its explosive run in the past five years. Going forward, it’s highly likely that this trend will continue. While it’s impossible to predict where the markets will trade over the next few weeks or months, over the long term, it’s highly likely that stocks will produce a return in line or above inflation. That’s because companies tend to increase prices with inflation.On top of this, technological advancements should lead to more efficient operations and higher profit margins. These factors have helped the index produce a double-digit return over the past few decades.While economic growth might come to a shuddering halt this year, over the long term, the global economy should continue to expand.Time to buy?Compared to owning gold and Bitcoin, it is relatively easy to hold the FTSE 250. Most online investment platforms allow investors to set up a regular plan in stocks and funds. Some of these platforms even offer discounts on funds, which means investors can pick up an FTSE 250 tracker fund today with fees of less than 0.1%.Owning a low-cost tracker fund also reduces the risk of bad stock picking. Picking stocks can be a time-consuming and daunting process. Even the professionals get it wrong regularly.You don’t have to worry about this with tracker funds. They’re designed the track the underlying index which, in this case, is the FTSE 250. In other words, you can acquire a portfolio of 250 companies at the click of a button without having to do any extra work.Considering the current market environment, this could be the best option for investors who’re looking to take advantage of market volatility.Put simply, the FTSE 250’s performance over the past few decades shows it could be a much better investment than gold and Bitcoin over the long run.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Teams named for Scotland v New Zealand

first_imgScotland v New Zealand EMC Autumn TestVenue: MurrayfieldDate: Saturday 13 November Kick-off: 1715 GMTCoverage: BBC One Scotland, BBC Radio Scotland commentary available via BBC Sport websiteScotland head coach Andy Robinson has challenged his side to build on their four match unbeaten run and earn the respect of the world’s best side when they face New Zealand in the first EMC Autumn Test at Murrayfield on Saturday. Robinson has made five changes from the Scotland team that started their last international – the historic 13-9 series-clinching success against Argentina in Mar del Plata in June. Rory Lamont replaces the recently injured Simon Danielli on the wing, while the rejuvenated Mike Blair, Scotland’s most-capped scrum-half, will start instead of Rory Lawson and will captain his country for the 14th time. In the pack Euan Murray is preferred to Moray Low at tight-head while the Glasgow pair, Richie Gray, 21, and Richie Vernon, 23, will both make their first starts for Scotland in place of their team-mates, Alastair Kellock and Johnnie Beattie both of whom are recovering from injuries.Robinson said: “It is imperative that we front up from the first whistle against the All Blacks on Saturday and play the game at a tempo where we can unveil our skills and show our discipline, because the winning of this Test match is in our hands.“We have shown our appetite to drive forward our game and our aim is to improve on our best performances last season, which we know inspired the country.“As someone who loves his rugby it’s been a real thrill to watch many of New Zealand’s games this year and, for me, it’s important that this month the Scotland team earn the respect of the southern hemisphere by the qualities we bring to bear.”More than 51,500 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s Test and Robinson is keen to see more surge through the Murrayfield turnstiles as tickets remain on sale until Friday night.“The support we had during our Autumn Test against Australia last year was phenomenal – the crowd shared the players’ belief and conviction that day and roared us on and we have to do our bit to create that same fabulous atmosphere this weekend,” he said.Tickets can be bought in three ways: via the Scottish Rugby website (; via the 24 hour phone line 0844 335 3933; or in person from the Scottish Rugby Ticket Centre, Gate A, Roseburn Street, Edinburgh.

Denmark climate telethon raises enough to plant almost 1m trees

first_img Tagged with: environment telethon Denmark has raised around £2.6m to plant almost 1 million trees in a telethon.Described as the world’s first climate telethon, Denmark plants trees was a collaboration between public TV channel TV 2 and the Danish Society for Nature Conservation. It took place on 14 September on TV 2, with the aim of raising enough funds to plant a million trees, through the creation of a number of new public forests in all TV 2 regions. In addition, 20% of the funds will go towards the conservation of endangered forest both in Denmark and abroad.The event raised enough to plant 914,233 trees, with one tree planted for every DKK 20 donated. This equates to 46 new forests in Denmark, along with the preservation of existing forests in Denmark and in Uganda threatened by deforestation.Now, together with the organisation Growing Trees Network Foundation, the Danish Nature Conservation Association will look at how the money should be distributed to new forests.TV 2’s channel manager Lotte Lindegaard said:“I think it is amazing to see how throughout Denmark we have created a focus on climate and the importance of trees for our globe. Of course, this is not done with tree planting alone, we must also work to preserve the existing forest, but this is literally a shovel in the right direction.”  473 total views,  2 views today Advertisement Denmark climate telethon raises enough to plant almost 1m trees Melanie May | 30 September 2019 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17  474 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 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.

LGBTQ Pride in fight-back

first_imgYouth in Buffalo, N.Y., support Black Lives Matter and blast violence against trans people.June is the month we mark our calendars to honor and celebrate the fightback courage and resistance of the LGBTQ community. Pride Month originated in rebellions by LGBTQ people in 1966 at Compton’s Cafeteria in Los Angeles and in 1969 at The Stonewall Inn in New York, sparking the modern gay liberation movement in the U.S.What we should mark in our hearts to remember every day of the year is that those rising up in righteous anger were mostly trans people of color, gay youth hustling to survive on the streets, draft-resisting crossdressers, gender nonconforming lesbians, drag queens and kings — a complex spectrum of people of transmasculine and transfeminine identities and expressions.Those rising up were, in fact, the very kinds of people targeted this year by the “bathroom bully” legislation against trans people in North Carolina, which also eliminated protections for lesbian, gay and bisexual people and for workers. Other states are making their own anti-trans laws, including  Michigan with two hateful bills. The people rising up on those hot summer nights in the 60s were resisting the state. They were resisting the police. They rose up because their small gathering places got raided by the same cops who routinely brutalized them for being queer people, poor people, people of color on the streets and in the bars.  Compton’s and Stonewall were rebellions by these LGBTQ people against state-sanctioned racist police repression. So this Pride month let us honor the lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, genderqueer and non-binary people who have led and are leading resistance to racism and poverty, to state legislative violence, to police brutality.We honor Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, Latina and African-American trans heroes of the Stonewall Rebellion. We honor CeCe McDonald, African-American trans woman who fought back against white supremacy and was sent to prison for it — and we honor our comrade Leslie Feinberg and the people worldwide who defended CeCe.We honor the queer and gender-nonconforming founders and leaders in the Black Lives Matter movement, including Jasmine Abdullah Richards, targeted by the Pasadena police and recently convicted of a trumped-up felony charge for going to the aid of someone harassed by the cops.We honor the queer and trans people of color leading the effort to overturn the bigoted HB2 legislation in North Carolina — those who are marching, sitting in, disrupting and creating a new future, those who are leading an LGBTQ rebellion that chants along with Assata Shakur, “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Government urged to lift ban on film about journalist imprisoned for 17 years

This act of censorship is all the more inappropriate and ridiculous as his films are available on websites such as YouTube and GoogleVideo. We call for the liberalisation of the censorship and internal security laws that deprive Singaporeans of an environment favourable to free speech.”Since 12 April, anyone suspected of possessing or disseminating a copy of “Zahari’s 17 years” can be sentenced to two yeas in prison and a heavy fine. See was forced to surrender all of his own copies of the documentary to the ministry of information, communication and arts on 11 April.The film consists of a 49-minute interview with Said, the former editor of the newspaper Utusan Melayu, about the reasons he and several colleagues were arrested under a draconian internal security law in 1963, when the government was headed by the current prime minister’s father. Two years before his arrest, Said led a strike by the staff of Utusan Melayu in protest against the government’s takeover of the newspaper.In a letter sent to See’s home on 10 April, the information ministry notified him that the documentary was being banned under article 35 (1) of the Film Act because the authorities would “not allow people who had posed a security threat to the country in the past to exploit the use of films to purvey a false and distorted portrayal of their past actions and detention by the government.” The documentary could “undermine public confidence in the government,” the letter added.The documentary can be viewed at… SingaporeAsia – Pacific October 15, 2020 Find out more News Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources April 10, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

He was arrested in September last year.The case was registered under Section 376-C of the IPC, an offence pertaining to the abuse of one’s position by a person in authority to “induce or seduce” a woman under his charge to have “sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape”.Chinmayanand (72) also faced charges under Sections 342 (wrongful confinement), 354-D (stalking) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.According to government lawyer Abhay Tripathi, the victim had lodged an FIR in this regard with the Lodhi Colony police station of New Delhi on September 5, 2019.Her father lodged another complaint in Shahjahanpur and both FIRs were merged.An SIT had recorded her statement. Later, her statement under Section 164 of the CrPC was recorded in Shahjahanpur.In both statements, she had supported the FIR version but now during the trial, she changed her statement and denied the facts mentioned in the complaint.Since she has turned hostile, I have moved an application under Section 340 of the CrPC, Tripathi said.Earlier, the investigation officer had cited 33 witnesses and 29 documentary evidence in the 13-page charge sheet.The Allahabad high court had on February 3, 2020 transferred the trial from Shahjahanpur to the Lucknow’s MP-MLA court.The case first came to light after the woman went missing on August 24, a day after she posted a video on social media alleging that a “senior leader of the sant community” was harassing and threatening to kill her.Her father filed a complaint with police, accusing Chinmayanand of sexually harassing her, a charge refuted by the former Union minister’s lawyer who claimed it was a “conspiracy” to blackmail him.An SIT was constituted by the Uttar Pradesh government on the orders of the Supreme Court in September to investigate the charges levelled by the woman.The law student was also later charged with trying to extort money from Chinmayanand. The 23-year-old woman and her three friends were booked on Chinmayanand’s complaint that they had demanded Rs 5 crore from him.The former Union minister alleged that they had threatened to make public video clips that showed him getting massages from the student. She was, however, granted bail in December. The Supreme Court had last week set aside an Allahabad High Court order allowing Chinmayanand to get a copy of statement of the woman recorded before a magistrate in connection with the case against him, saying “utmost confidentiality is required to be maintained” in sexual exploitation cases.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
