Forget gold and Bitcoin! I reckon today’s FTSE 100 buying opportunity could help you retire early

first_img Harvey Jones | Saturday, 11th April, 2020 Image source: Getty Images. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. 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. The stock market crash swung into recovery mode last week, with the FTSE 100 now up 15% since its lows in late March. Despite that, investors still have a massive opportunity to buy bargain blue-chip stocks, and this is where I would invest today, rather than in precious metal gold or crypto-currency Bitcoin.I’ve been taking advantage of the share price crash to top up my FTSE 100 trackers, seeing this as a great buying opportunity. I’d much rather buy equities tax-free in a Stocks and Shares ISA than gold or Bitcoin and here’s why.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…The gold price is up almost 35% over the past 12 months, but it is now struggling to climb higher. Last month should have been perfect for gold, as panicked investors ran to traditional safe havens, but in fact the price fell slightly.Trading at nearly $1,700 an ounce, gold is expensive, and could slip back if sentiment recovers.Gold and Bitcoin worry meBitcoin will have disappointed those who claimed it was a safe haven asset class that behaved in a different way to shares. In fact, it has crashed faster than the FTSE 100 during this year, halving from just over $10,000 to around $5,000 at one point. The crypto-currency remains hugely unpredictable, and I wouldn’t want to bet my financial future on it.The stock market may also have crashed, but unlike gold and Bitcoin, companies listed on the FTSE 100 actually have something to offer the real world. You could live without gold, which has few practical uses, and Bitcoin, which frankly has none. You would struggle without energy firms, utilities, supermarkets, banks and pharmaceutical companies. What a FTSE 100 buying opportunityI wouldn’t want to base my early retirement plans on gold and Bitcoin. Especially since neither pay any interest. FTSE 100 stocks are how I plan to invest for my retirement and today is a great buying opportunity.Some of you may be wary about investing given today’s volatility, but there’s a simple way to get round this. You should invest for the long term, 10 years at least. Over such a lengthy time, today’s bear market worries will soon fade.Invest now to retire early laterIn fact, the FTSE 100 often recovers from a stock market crash to hit fresh highs, as investors leap on buying opportunities, and keep buying. It’s part of the natural investment cycle. The trick is to buy at the bottom of the cycle, like today, rather than the top.It could take some years for the market to fully recover from the coronavirus shock, but if you can leave your money invested, then you should reap the rewards later. This is a great opportunity to buy top FTSE 100 stocks, and use them to fund your early retirement. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Harvey Jones Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

And then, almost as quickly, he shakes his head back and forth, as if denying his intent. (It’s obvious that he is not being completely honest because of the goofy grin on his face. And just so you understand, this head bobbing indicates that the male is interested in something other then… simply… bobbing his head.)Once he has the attention of the lovely young lady tortoise, she approaches him and says something like, “Hello big boy.  Where have you been all my life?”To which he thinks, in turtle-ese of course, “Whoa boy, she likes me! oh goody, goody, goody!”  He then proceeds to bob his head even faster, pausing now and then to give her some playful little love nips on the front legs.  What is the saying about love springing eternal?The only thing that we can possibly learn from this elaborate head bobbing ritual is that persistence pays off.Sometimes.Maybe…?I can remember the time I tried the head bobbing thing with my wife, after which she went into the bedroom, locked the door behind her, and then shouted at me to go away or she would call the police. What works for gopher tortoises obviously isn’t going to work for me. It sure didn’t get the desired results. Perhaps I need to perfect my head bobbing technique… and throw in a few love nips…? Maybe…?Dear God, thank you for being so very patient with me… and thanks for giving me a little more sense than a simple-minded gopher tortoise… sometimes… maybe? Thank you for giving me the ability to not take life so seriously, and for being able to laugh at my own goof ups, foibles and faux pas.  In Jesus’ holy name I ask it, Amen Perhaps you are right Richard, but it seems that I have developed “half baked attempts” to a fine degree of perfection because there are those times she has taken pity on me and the reward has been commensurate to the efforts put forth, and all without the love nips. Bless you, Chaz June 21, 2020 at 8:32 am Judith Hankes, if only we ALL could see the Divine purpose in all aspects of creation, what a blessing that would be! Yup, Yup, all of creation would prosper if we would learn to joyfully learn to co-exist as He intended to began with. Bless you and yours with great love and undying joy. Chaz June 21, 2020 at 8:03 am Lololol….you are hilarious!Well, now I know more about Gophers than I ever knew before.Very interesting. Just proves that God does truly have a sense of humor! Thank you, I enjoyed the story and the chuckle!God bless you. Happy Father’s Day my dear friend! Simply LOVE the article…I’m still laughing.

Solitary confinement ‘torture chambers’

first_imgPhiladelphiaCalling for “solidarity, not solitary,” dozens of people — including organizers from prisoners’ rights groups, survivors of solitary confinement and state legislators — rallied outside the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia June 1. Inside the Eastern State Penitentiary, support for HB1037, June 2.They called for passage of HB1037, Pennsylvania legislation that would cap the maximum days in solitary confinement at 15. This is in accordance with U.N. Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners — named the “Nelson Mandela Rules” in honor of the longtime political prisoner in the struggle against South African apartheid. The Pennsylvania legislation would prevent people under 21, LGBTQ+ people and aging (55 years+) community members from being held in solitary.A June 2 press conference also at Eastern State Penitentiary featured legislators in support of HB1037; this was hosted by State Representatives Tina Davis and Donna Bullock and State Senators John Kane and Katie Muth. Both events were organized by the Human Rights Coalition of Pennsylvania (HRC), the Abolitionist Law Center (ALC), the Coalition against Death by Incarceration and the Solidarity Not Solitary PA-CAIC (Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement).The events’ press release stated: “Mental health experts note that solitary confinement causes anxiety and depression in the vast majority of people forced ‘in the hole,’ exacerbating existing mental health issues. The suicide rates for those in solitary confinement are, at minimum, double compared to incarcerated community members sanctioned to ‘general population.’ Recidivism rates are also higher for those who have spent time in solitary confinement.”Birthplace of U.S. solitary confinementEastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, opened by Quakers in the 19th century, was the birthplace of mass institutionalized solitary confinement in the U.S. The practice was later widely discredited and considered inhumane, counterproductive and akin to torture. But in the 1970s it was widely used, as the “War on Drugs” led to a rapid rise in mass incarceration.At the rally John Thompson, with the ALC, noted that the revitalization of solitary confinement in the U.S. coincided with state efforts to suppress Black national liberation. Prison officials particularly targeted organizers who stood up to abuse from guards or complained to administration. Thompson said, “Solitary confinement was used to break activists.”Several speakers were survivors of long-term solitary confinement in Pennsylvania prisons. Their testimonials were very emotional. Many had been released after cases against them were exposed as based on lies. They emphasized that while they are survivors, they can’t forget the people still confined. One described being stripped naked, air blown on him and a light shone on him 24 hours a day. He was chained to a metal bed for months.The event included a mock cell complete with a concrete bed. Those who had never experienced solitary confinement were encouraged to spend just five minutes there and reflect on what it would be to survive this 24/7.The ‘torture chamber’ of solitaryPatricia Marshall Vickers, part of founding the HRC in 2001, described solitary confinement as “a torture chamber — a means to punish, retaliate, abuse and mentally break a person.” The HRC has received thousands of letters from different prisoners across Pennsylvania, all describing similar brutal conditions. Incarcerated people report being sprayed with a chemical that burns their skin, but not being allowed to wash it off or receive medical treatment. Many report being stripped naked and placed in a “restraint chair,” with arms and feet strapped to the chair for extended periods of time. Abusive guards withhold or contaminate their food. Water in cells is cut off for days. Guards turn off heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Basic rights like sunshine and showers are denied. Guards charge into solitary cells, severely beat the incarcerated person and subject them to constant verbal abuse. Incarcerated people with mental health issues are told by guards to “go ahead and kill yourself.”Vickers stated that “85% of people in solitary are there for disobeying an order, not for violent behavior. Pennsylvania prison administrators claim no one is held past 90 days, but we know they have held people for years.” Former Black Panther Party member Russell Maroon Shoatz spent 33 years in solitary confinement in Pennsylvania prisons.Commenting on the recent one-year anniversary of the police murder of George Floyd, Vickers said, “We face police brutality on the streets, and the exact same thing happens inside the prisons where our loved ones face abusive guards. We need laws that hold the guards accountable.”Abolish solitary!Organizers expressed optimism for passage of HB1037, as situated within a broader wave of racial justice organizing and legislation seeking to reform and abolish solitary confinement. There were three recent major victories against solitary confinement in New Jersey, New York and in Allegheny County in Pennsylvania, where Pittsburgh is located.“This is the start of people seeing the system for what it is,” said Saudia Durrant with the ALC. “In Pennsylvania prisons, there are over 2,000 people every day — disproportionately Black, Brown and poor — subjected to the state-sponsored violence of solitary, hidden behind prison walls and removed from human connection and rehabilitation. To transform our societies, we must end the use of long-term isolation and create alternative methods of care and rehabilitation.”Marta Guttenberg contributed to this article. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indignation as government restricts advertising to “nationalist” publications

first_img RSF_en Under Chinese pressure, Nepal sanctions three journalists over Dalai Lama story Reporters Without Borders condemned a latest government drive to strangle the independent local and national press as it unveiled a new policy limiting public bodies to buying advertising space in media loyal to “the nation, nationality and the monarchy”.”The government has a duty to share out its purchasing of advertising space in an impartial manner,” the organisation said. “In fact it is doing the opposite by bringing in a new policy without consultation, that goes against the principles of free enterprise and freedom of expression””The royal government is trying to realise its dream as quickly as possible to drive out the independent press, which despite censorship and harassment continues to exercise its right to inform the public.”The minister of Information and Communications, Tank Dhakal, presented the broad lines of the “One Door Advertisement Policy-2062BS”, on 20 June, designed to match public advertising to the respect shown by the media for “the nation, nationality and the monarchy.”The policy also allows for press firms to be judged according to their “positive activism” to strengthen the security forces’ morale. It also set out other more legitimate criteria trying to get support from journalists: financial transparency, applications of laws on journalists’ rights and respect for journalistic ethics.A Central Coordination Committee (CCC) has been created to run the new policy. Its seven members come from within government, under the chairmanship of the Information and Communications Minister. The creation of the CCC cuts back to a minimum the role of the Press Council, seen by the authorities as too independent.Allocation at local level will also be run by each state representative under the information department in Kathmandu. “It will be the death of local private weeklies,” said one journalist in the capital who spoke under condition of anonymity. “The administrative clumsiness of the system and the lack of impartiality of government representatives in the provinces will squeeze the advertising revenue of these publications.” to go further Nepal: RSF’s recommendations to amend controversial Media Council Bill Reporters Without Borders condemned the latest move in a government drive to stamp out the independent national and local press as the Information and Communications Ministry unveiled its Advertisement Policy-2062B on 20 June 2005 designed to award government advertising according to respect shown by the media to “the nation, nationality and the monarchy”.

North America $1.1 Billion Kidney Stones Retrieval Devices Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19…

first_img WhatsApp Facebook WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Twitter DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– The “North America Kidney Stones Retrieval Devices Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Type; Treatment; End User; and Country” report has been added to’s offering. The North America kidney stones retrieval devices market is expected to reach US$ 1,167.4 million by 2027 from US$ 797.7 million in 2019; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2020 to 2027. The growth of this market is attributed to the growing rate of renal stone disorders and increasing kidney stone retrieval device launches. However, the high cost of kidney stone removal surgeries hampers the market growth. Kidney stone devices include a wide range of stone retrieval tools such as lithotripter, stone baskets, ureteral stents, ureterorenoscopes, guidewires, and access sheath. These tools are tube-like structure that is attached with a camera to visualize the position of stones inside the ureter, and tools such as lithotripter are used to break down stones into pieces, and stone basket helps hold the stones pieces together. Accessories such as guidewires and access sheaths allow the insertion of stone removal devices into the ureter. Renal stone disease, also known as nephrolithiasis, has a prevalence rate of ~7% among adults; the disease may reoccur after 10 years in many people. Factors such as obesity; dehydration; digestive disorders; medical conditions, including renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism, and repeated urinary tract infections; and excess medication consumption increase the risk of developing kidney stone among people. North America has been witnessing a growing number of COVID-19 cases since its outbreak. According to Worldometer, as of September 11, 2020, the number of cases increased to 6,588,181, with 196,331 deaths. The cases are also growing in Mexico and Canada. In Mexico, the cases have reached 652,364, with 69,649 deaths. Similarly, in Canada, there were ~134,924 COVID cases, with 9,163 deaths reported till September. Several measures are being taken to contain the disease and prevent transmission; however, the excessive number of COVID cases has resulted in the cancellation of doctor’s appointments, decreased demand for elective surgery, and disruptions in supply chain due to long periods of lockdown. For instance, Medtronic Plc, in its annual report 2019, stated that the novel coronavirus may have a negative sales impact due to the potential effect on procedure volumes in China and supply chain disruption.
