Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy crashing UK shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA right now 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. UK shares may yet experience a further market crash as uncertainty surrounding factors such as Brexit and a second wave of coronavirus builds in the second half of 2020. While this may naturally cause some investors to focus their capital on other assets such as Bitcoin and gold, the long-term prospects for FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares appear to be bright.Through buying a range of bargain stocks today in a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA, you could obtain strong growth in the long run as a stock market recovery takes hold.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 past performance of UK sharesInvesting in UK shares is never an easy task. One of the biggest challenges facing any investor is overcoming a natural urge to avoid buying stocks when they are priced at their most attractive levels.For example, in previous economic crises investors have often sold or avoided the stock market in favour of other assets. While this may have been a sound short-term move in some cases, over the long run it can mean that such investors miss out on the stock market’s eventual recovery.Therefore, while it may feel unnatural to buy UK shares when their risks are elevated, it can mean that you are able to obtain the most attractive prices. And, with the stock market having always recovered from its very worst recessions and bear markets, adopting a buy-and-hold strategy can prove to be very profitable over the long run when you are able to purchase high-quality companies at a discount to their intrinsic values.A simple approachOf course, it is currently too soon to know what the long-term outcome of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown will be on a variety of sectors and UK shares. Therefore, adopting a simple strategy could be a logical move. This may mean that investors diversify across a range of sectors and purchase companies with solid balance sheets. Furthermore, they may wish to invest through a tax-efficient account that is cheap to administer and simple to manage, such as a Stocks and Shares ISA.Certainly, this plan may not produce returns that are as high in the short run as other assets such as gold and Bitcoin. However, the past performance of the stock market suggests that a long-term recovery for indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 is very likely. Through using a tried-and-tested approach that focuses on buying and holding shares to minimise risk and still allows for high returns as the economy and stock market recover, you could generate surprisingly strong returns.Therefore, with the threat of a second market crash and political challenges such as Brexit still looming, now may be the right time to go against your instincts and buy cheap UK shares. Over time, they could produce high returns that improve your financial prospects.

Howard Lake | 1 March 2012 | News Tagged with: Trading Volunteering The National Trust reports that bookings for its working holidays have increased by 50% compared to this time last year. The activity holidays have been running for 45 years, and enable people to get out in the fresh air and help conserve the country’s natural environment.The holiday activities include surfing while repairing footpaths in Devon, planting trees and photographing Snowdonia or dry-stone walling alongside Hadrian’s Wall in Northumbria.The National Trust puts the growth down in part to the growing number of Britons who are choosing to holiday within the UK due to the economic downturn.The Trust’s Head of Holidays, Marianne Wanstall, said: “We’re really focused on providing unique experiences; our most popular choices are those with activities at their core, such as cycling, surfing, sailing, bush craft or photography. One of the real positives is the range of participants, from young to old, and we’re delighted that there’s been a major growth in our family holiday packages.”Working holidaymakers join 60,000 people who volunteer regularly for the National Trust across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.www.nationaltrust.org.uk/workingholidays 19 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Bookings on National Trust working holidays up 50% on last year AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

With support from the Jordanian Ministry of Education, the app will help Syrian refugee children living in the country catch up with their schooling.The app, “Space Hero” (Batl Al Fada’a), is an extension of Save the Children and Pearson’s ‘Every Child Learning’ partnership, which works to improve education for Syrian refugees and local children affected by the Syrian conflict in Jordan. The app was designed by Beelabs and developed by Pearson, in collaboration with refugee and Jordanian children and aims to help these children improve their academic results and build resilience. It also supports a broader Save the Children-led in-school programme focusing on teacher professional development, enhancing school-community relations, after-school learning and psychosocial support.The project will be launched in three boys’ schools for the 2017-2018 academic year, and then scaled up for the 2018-2019 academic year to an additional five schools, four of which will be girls’ schools. The app can also be found on the Google Play store to download for free.Screenshots from Space Hero app Tagged with: app corporate refugees Commit to predictable multi-year funding for education in refugee responsesImprove collaboration and develop innovative partnershipsUse technology as an enabling tool in pursuit of education outcomesKate James, Chief Corporate Affairs and Global Marketing Officer of Pearson, said:“Refugee children are the doctors, farmers, teachers, and scientists of the future – jobs that hinge critically on gaining the skills we know quality education delivers.

Solidarity with Philadelphia sanitation workers Even though trash has been piling up on Philadelphia streets during this steamy summer, there’s acknowledgment between city officials and the sanitation workers’ union, American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Local 427 of District Council 33, that it’s because many workers have been calling out sick because of COVID-19. Some have tested positive; others have been quarantining due to on-the-job exposure; others don’t have reliable childcare. Or there may just be more household trash now. Juliana Feliciano Reyes pointed out in an Aug. 4 Philadelphia Inquirer article that the workers were fighting for hazard pay and better protective equipment even before the pandemic. But now people are acting in solidarity with them — randomly passing out water as trucks come by, buying T-shirts to help workers purchase protective equipment and cleaning supplies, and posting signs supporting them. Reyes observed, “It’s a sign of how the narrative around work has shifted, especially during the pandemic. Americans have been witnessing the reality faced by many workers — low wages, few protections — as those risking their lives on the job speak out about unsafe working conditions.” She added, “Sanitation workers in particular have been at the forefront of this moment. Like their counterparts in Philadelphia, workers have protested in Pittsburgh and in Raleigh, N.C. In New Orleans, sanitation workers have been on strike for nearly three months. The Black Lives Matter uprisings have only bolstered the efforts, as many sanitation workers are Black men.”California workers demand testing before Disney parks openThe Coalition of Resort Labor Unions, an alliance of 12 unions representing 17,000 workers at Disney theme parks in Anaheim, Calif., has been carrying on a struggle for months over safety measures for its members who were furloughed March 13. It sent Gov. Newsom a compelling letter protesting the July 17 reopening of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. That has since been delayed indefinitely. Disney did agree to certain ground rules — two weeks sick pay for confirmed cases of COVID-19, though workers have to apply for state disability after that; workers must conduct a daily at-home coronavirus assessment with a thermometer supplied by Disney; members who must work within 6 feet of visitors will be provided a plastic face shield. (Orange County Register, June 25)But the company refuses to do daily testing for cast members, claiming, “The existing COVID-19 testing is not viable as a screening tool and not recommended by the [Food and Drug Administration] to be used in this way,” according to Disney Labor Relations Director Bill Pace. But, as an Aug. 3 Daily Beast article points out, that’s totally opposite the testing regime used in the National Basketball Association’s Bubble at Disney World in Orlando. Players and select staff are given daily COVID-19 tests that can catch and contain any outbreaks; so far they’ve been very effective. While not commenting on the NBA Bubble, another Disney spokesperson noted, “We’ve adopted new protocols for face coverings, health screenings, cleaning and disinfecting, training and more.” Meanwhile a select number of “veteran members” returned to their jobs July 9 in Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District, an outdoor shopping and dining complex, even though they are uncertain about their safety. One District worker has tested positive since the reopening, according to Andrea Zinder, president of the Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 324, which represents Downtown Disney employees. The worker began self-isolating after receiving the news on July 24. The situation calls for the longtime union slogan, “An injury to one is an injury to all.”Workers at nonprofit join union Aug. 5 Staff at the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center joined the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union on Aug. 5. When the CPC Center requested voluntary recognition from management, it agreed to move forward with the process. “We believe in unity and equity and have dedicated our careers to serving and fighting for justice,” said representatives of the CPC Center Union. “We believe that unionizing will help uphold the CPC Center’s values and commitment to empowering and strengthening communities of all backgrounds across the nation.” The CPC Center states that it works to “identify and develop solutions to build a more just, equitable and resilient nation.” (NPEU, Aug. 5) FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
ReddIt The 109 Facebook ReddIt Fort Worth braces for more severe weather Linkedin The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store printThe non-competitive mile walk was organized by TCU alumna Lauren-Ashton Shepheard, who wants to help people with eating disorders in Tarrant County to find resources they need.Shepheard said she had an eating disorder, athletic anorexia, during some of her time at TCU.“Unfortunately, there was not a lot of support when I tried to find help.” the Fort Worth native said. “I am fortunate and thankful to say I have been recovered for two and a half years now.”“This is my way of trying to make sure no one else has to feel the way I did when I needed help and had a hard time finding it,” she said.Proceeds from the walk will benefit the National Eating Disorders Association and The Elisa Project.Shepheard found the NEDA after she graduated from TCU through doing research about eating disorders and learning how she could volunteer on the issue.Based in New York City, NEDA is a non-profit that aims to support those affected by eating disorders and their families.They campaign for “prevention, improved access to quality treatment, and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders,” according to NEDA’s website.According to NEDA, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life.“The treatment cost of an eating disorder in the US ranges from $500 to $2,000 a day,” according to their website.Proceeds will also go to the The Elisa Project, which also focuses on prevention and public awareness of eating disorders.The organization was formed in honor of Elisa McCall, a college student who committed suicide after suffering from an eating disorder and depression. She had recorded in her diary that she wanted to help people who were suffering from what she was.Shepheard said she wanted to make sure that The Elisa Project was included so funds from the walk could stay in Fort Worth.“It was very important to me to see an impact here in the community as well as what I could do nationally,” she said.Some proceeds given to The Elisa Project from the walk will go towards Tarrant County schools to support students who struggle with these disorders.NEDA has exceeded their Fort Worth goal of $10,000. Their leading sponsors include McCallum Place Eating Disorder Centers, Children’s Health Medical Center, Laureate Eating Disorders Program, PMG, Capital Grille, Juice Junkies and Vanity Room.Other ‘in-kind contributions’ have come from Summits Hot Yoga, Bikram Yoga and Sinaca Studios.The opening ceremony will begin at 9:15 a.m. and will start the walk off with a yoga session and motivational speakers, including Fort Worth television producer and host Janeé Hill.Hill said she also struggled from an eating disorder earlier in her life.“There is hope of walking in freedom from eating disorders, and if you are struggling, there is a community of support and resources available,” she said.Once they cross the finish line, walk participants can listen to music provided by a DJ and join in activities such as games and face painting.Organizers of the Fort Worth NEDA Walk are hoping it can become an annual event.“Through awareness and education, I believe we can make a difference in so many lives with the prevention and effective treatment of eating disorders,” Shepheard said. “If there’s hope, then we’ve achieved our goal.”Libby Vincek is a public affairs reporter for The 109. Email her at [email protected] Twitter Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Linkedin Let me start off by saying Texas State is a good offensive team. There is no doubt about that. But on several occasions, this “lowly” FCS team made the mighty Frogs’ defensive secondary look just plain silly. What was, despite what any coach will say, scheduled as a tune up game for Clemson turned out to be quite the challenge for the Frogs.The Frogs’ secondary better step up and make the adjustments needed for good coverage, or TCU doesn’t stand a chance against a good Tiger offense this Saturday.

He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ TCU is bowl eligible after defeating Texas, 31-9 Garrett Podell printTCU became bowl eligible Friday as they defeated the University of Texas in Austin, notching a decisive 31-9 victory for their sixth win of the season.“We got bowl eligible, and I’m very proud of this team,” head coach Gary Patterson said.Patterson is now 4-2 as a head coach versus Texas in his career. TCU improved to 3-0 against the Longhorns under their head coach Charlie Strong — giving the Frogs their first three-game winning streak over the Longhorns since winning four straight games from 1935-38.“We’re not afraid of the University of Texas, and they put their pants on the same way we do,” TCU backup quarterback Foster Sawyer said.Here are five takeaways from the game:Texas missed a number of red zone opportunitiesThe Longhorns marched all the way to the TCU 30 at the beginning of the second quarter before quarterback Shane Buechele threw an incomplete pass on fourth down. Texas kicker Trent Domingue hooked a 38-yard field goal wide right with nine minutes left in the first half. Texas had first and goal from four yards out and ran the nation’s leader in rushing yards, D’Onta Foreman, four straight times. On fourth down, Foreman was stuffed once again, but reached the ball toward the goal line but was ruled short of the end zone.“We just had to be a wall to keep a 250-pound running back out of the end zone,” TCU linebacker Ty Summers said. “Our playcalling with blitzes off the edge, it all came together.”Summers had a team-high 14 tackles, including a sack, to reach double figures for the eighth time in the last 10 games. He now has 105 tackles on the season.The Longhorns squandered a number of scoring opportunities, which allowed TCU to maintain a lead.“We survived the first half,” Patterson said. “I was very proud of them after that, and I told them that after all that to have the lead at half, we had a shot in this game.”Kenny Hill has another wildly inconsistent performance throwing the footballTCU quarterback Kenny Hill began the game in dominant fashion, marching the Horned Frogs up the field in just 2:21 on their opening drive, which he capped with a four-yard scramble for six. Hill also had 65 yards passing on that drive, hitting four different receivers. After the opening drive, Hill threw for only 15 more yards in the first half and threw an interception.D’Onta Foreman dominatesD’Onta Foreman moved into second on Texas’ single-season rushing list and eclipsed 2,000 yards rushing on the season with 165 yards rushing on 31 carries.“He got about 170 yards, but some people thought he could get 400,” Patterson said. “He’s a really good back.”Summers said even though he rushed a significant amount of yards, “it was a pleasure to play against a talent like that.”TCU runs their way onto the scoreboardWhile TCU could never find the momentum throwing the football, they beat Texas in the running game. The Horned Frog offense totaled 309 yards rushing with a number of different players contributing.Hill ran the ball 13 times for 78 yards, including two touchdowns. Hill has nine rushing touchdowns on the year, second to running back Kyle Hicks, who has 12.Trevorris Johnson chipped in with 11 carries, 68 yards and a touchdown.However, TCU’s leading rushing was true freshman running back Darius Anderson. Entering the game with only 92 career rushing yards, Anderson finished the game with 103 yards rushing on three carries, including a 70-yard scoring scamper for the first touchdown of his college career.Sawyer said that Anderson has the “it factor.”“Darius Anderson is a baller,” Sawyer said. “Everyone on this team has the next man up mentality.”KaVontae Turpin will return next week Patterson had Turpin on the sidelines during Friday’s game but said he should be back next week.Deanté Gray filled Turpin’s void admirably. Gray returned four kicks for 117 yards, including one for 57 yards, a career high. True freshman cornerback Jeff Gladney also started in place for an injured Julius Lewis.“Deanté gave us a lot, and Jeff Gladney has practiced well the past two weeks and play played this past one and against Oklahoma State,” Patterson said.Patterson said it is unknown if Lewis will be ready to play next Saturday.TCU finishes off its regular season game against Kansas State in Amon G.

The coloring around the coast of the arctic island shows the speed of outlet glaciers flowing into the ocean. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/USGSA new study of Greenland’s shrinking ice sheet reveals that many of the island’s glaciers are not only retreating, but are also undergoing other physical changes. Some of those changes are causing the rerouting of freshwater rivers beneath the glaciers, where it meets the bedrock. These rivers carry nutrients into the ocean, so this reconfiguring has the potential to impact the local ecology as well as the human communities that depend on it.“The coastal environment in Greenland is undergoing a major transformation,” said Alex Gardner, a research scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and co-author of the study. “We are already seeing new sections of the ocean and fjords opening up as the ice sheet retreats, and now we have evidence of changes to these freshwater flows. So losing ice is not just about changing sea level, it’s also about reshaping Greenland’s coastline and altering the coastal ecology.”About 80% of Greenland is blanketed by an ice sheet, also known as a continental glacier, that reaches a thickness of up to 2.1 miles (3.4 kilometers). Multiple studies have shown that the melting ice sheet is losing mass at an accelerating rate due to rising atmosphere and ocean temperatures, and that the additional meltwater is flowing into the sea.This study, published on Oct. 27 in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth’s Surface, provides a detailed look at physical changes to 225 of Greenland’s ocean-terminating glaciers, which are narrow fingers of ice that flow from the ice sheet interior out into the ocean. The data used in the paper was compiled as part of a project based at JPL called Inter-mission Time Series of Land Ice Velocity and Elevation, or ITS_LIVE, which brings together observations of glaciers around the globe – collected by multiple satellites between 1985 and 2015 – into a single dataset open to scientists and the public. The satellites are all part of the Landsat program, which has sent a total of seven spacecraft into orbit to study Earth’s surface since 1972. Managed by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, Landsat data reveals both natural and human-caused changes to Earth’s surface, and is used by land managers and policymakers to make decisions about Earth’s changing environment and natural resources.Glacier flow is imperceptible to the human eye, but this animation shows glaciers in Asia moving over a span of 11 years, from 1991 to 2002. The animation is composed of false-color images from Landsat 5 and 7 spacecraft. Moving ice is gray and blue; brighter blues are changing snow and ice cover. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/USGS/Earth ObservatoryAdvancing and RetreatingAs glaciers flow toward the sea – albeit too slowly to be perceptible to the eye – they are replenished by new snowfall on the interior of the ice sheet that gets compacted into ice. Some glaciers extend past the coastline and can break off as icebergs. Due to rising atmospheric and ocean temperatures, the balance between glacier melting and replenishment, as well as iceberg calving, is changing. Over time, a glacier’s front may naturally advance or retreat, but the new research shows that none of the 225 ocean-terminating glaciers surveyed has substantially advanced since 2000, while 200 have retreated.Although this is in line with other Greenland findings, the new survey captures a trend that hasn’t been apparent in previous work: As individual glaciers retreat, they are also changing in ways that are likely rerouting freshwater flows under the ice. For example, glaciers change in thickness not only as warmer air melts ice off their surfaces, but also as their flow speed changes in response to the ice front advancing or retreating.Both scenarios were observed in the new study, and both can lead to changes in the distribution of pressure beneath the ice; scientists can infer these pressure changes based on changes in thickness analyzed in the study. This, in turn, can change the path of a subglacial river, since water will always take the path of least resistance, flowing in the direction of lowest pressure.Citing previous studies on the ecology of Greenland, the authors note that freshwater rivers under the ice sheet deliver nutrients (such as nitrogen, phosphorus, iron, and silica) to bays, deltas, and fjords around Greenland. In addition, the under-ice rivers enter the ocean where the ice and bedrock meet, which is often well below the ocean’s surface. The relatively buoyant fresh water rises, carrying nutrient-rich deep ocean water to the surface, where the nutrients can be consumed by phytoplankton. Research has shown that glacial meltwater rivers directly impact the productivity of phytoplankton – meaning the amount of biomass they produce – which serves as a foundation of the marine food chain. Combined with the opening up of new fjords and sections of ocean as glaciers retreat, these changes amount to a transformation of the local environment.“The speed of ice loss in Greenland is stunning,” said Twila Moon, deputy lead scientist of the National Snow and Ice Data Center and lead author on the study. “As the ice sheet edge responds to rapid ice loss, the character and behavior of the system as a whole are changing, with the potential to influence ecosystems and people who depend on them.”The changes described in the new study seem to depend on the unique features of its environment, such as the slope of the land that the glacier flows down, the properties of the ocean water that touch the glacier, as well as the glacier’s interaction with neighboring glaciers. That suggests scientists would need detailed knowledge not only of the glacier itself, but also of the glacier’s unique environment in order to predict how it will respond to continued ice loss.“It makes modeling glacial evolution far more complex when we’re trying to anticipate how these systems will evolve both in the short term and two or three decades out,” Gardner said. “It’s going to be more challenging than we previously thought, but we now have a better understanding of the processes driving the variety of responses, which will help us make better ice sheet models.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Make a comment CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Science and Technology Greenland’s Retreating Glaciers Could Impact Local Ecology Details about the physical transformation of over 200 of the island’s coastal glaciers are documented in a new study, in which the authors anticipate environmental impacts.

This paper aims to introduce the main types and sources of remotely sensed data that are freely available and have cryospheric applications. We describe aerial and satellite photography, satellite-borne visible, near-infrared and thermal infrared sensors, synthetic aperture radar, passive microwave imagers and active microwave scatterometers. We consider the availability and practical utility of archival data, dating back in some cases to the 1920s for aerial photography and the 1960s for satellite imagery, the data that are being collected today and the prospects for future data collection; in all cases, with a focus on data that are openly accessible. Derived data products are increasingly available, and we give examples of such products of particular value in polar and cryospheric research. We also discuss the availability and applicability of free and, where possible, open-source software tools for reading and processing remotely sensed data. The paper concludes with a discussion of open data access within polar and cryospheric sciences, considering trends in data discoverability, access, sharing and use.

Although its most recent results revealed a stabilising rather than free-falling sales business, and improved performance within its lettings division, it’s a shadow of its former self.The company’s share price has plummeted over the past five years from £2.67p a share to its current level, not helped by a string of gloomy half and full-year results that revealed significant reductions in turnover and profit as the London market contracted. Earlier this year the company recorded its first loss since 2013.Foxtons’ most recent results released at the end of last month revealed revenues down by 3.5% to £51.1 million and losses deepening to £3.2 million.Richard Harris Foxtons August 15, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
