Forget gold, Bitcoin, and the Japanese yen! Now is the time to buy the FTSE 100

first_img 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 times of trouble, investors instinctively race off in search of safe havens, and that is exactly what happened after President Donald Trump ordered the killing of Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Iraq.Run for coverCue a spike in the price of gold, the crypto-currency Bitcoin, and the Japanese yen. All are seen as financial boltholes in their different ways – gold is an ancient store of value, Bitcoin offers shelter when traditional assets are under pressure, and the Japanese yen is a rock solid currency because of the country’s solid current account surplus.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…By contrast, investors flee stock markets when geopolitical problems strike. The FTSE 100 ended Monday down 0.64%, while the FTSE 250 was off more than 1%.The US-Iran stand-off scared away short-term traders; they will wait to see how and when Iran will retaliate, and whether it does something drastic like attempt to close the Strait of Hormuz to shipping. Almost a fifth of the world’s oil passes through the Strait, some 17.2m barrels per day, and closing this could inflict further turmoil on markets.The uncertainty isn’t hitting every stock, though. As Brent crude shot through $70 a barrel, FTSE 100 oil giant BP climbed more than 2% on Monday, while FTSE 250 listed energy services business Wood Group jumped almost 4%.Play the long gameStock market traders are by nature a jumpy bunch, as they try to capitalise on short-term market movements, but investors must ignore short-term threats, whether economic or geopolitical, and keep their eyes on the long-term prize, which is to tap into the greater long-term growth capacity of stocks and shares to build wealth for their future.If you are investing for 20, 30, 40 years or more, events like these will one day be a mere blip. You need to keep your money exposed to the winning combination of share price growth and in particular, dividend payouts, and ignore political noise like this.It’s time in the market that matters, not timing the market, as the old investment saying puts it. Any investor who is so nervy that they sold off their holdings because of recent political events probably shouldn’t have been in the market in the first place.Home from homeThe unpredictability of stock markets was seen in 2019, when investors started the year in a gloomy mood and ended on an unexpected high. The FTSE 100 ended last year more than 10% higher, while in the US, the S&P 500 index climbed more than 25%.Markets may struggle to repeat the trick this year, so I would advise looking for buying opportunities in the shape of a market dip. Who knows, we may see one over the next few days.If further geopolitical uncertainty does knock investor sentiment and share prices, I would forget gold, Bitcoin, the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc and cash. Despite their vaunted ‘safe’ status they don’t cut it for me in the longer run.Screw up your courage, and buy shares instead. In the longer run, they should deliver a far superior total return, which makes them a far better home for your long-term wealth, whatever happens on the political stage.

Photos/Edgard Giraldo[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori addressed key points of the General Convention agenda July 9 in a candid Spanish-language interview with Episcopal WebRadio.The conversation began with the “next generation”; in particular the so-called next generation Latinos, part of the new face and hope of the Episcopal Church.KJS:  Yes, the hope but also the present of the Episcopal Church.Q: Bishop, let’s begin talking about the Anglican Covenant, undoubtedly a long-standing and controversial issue. Many young Episcopalians ask themselves: what does it mean for me? What does it mean for the future of our church, a “yes” or “no” vote on this issue?KJS: The Anglican Covenant is a very relevant issue for many Anglicans and Spanish-speaking Episcopalians. I believe that the Anglican Covenant is something very British, and it is something that many in the communion see as an attempt to retain or revive the Empire. In some parts of the communion — like in New Zealand, for example — the church, for the most part aborigine, doesn’t like much the idea contained in the fourth section of the covenant. In its conclusion, it sets a process to eliminate part of the communion. I believe, as many people do in the Episcopal Church and other parts of the communion, that right now we have more opportunities to establish relationships and cooperate, and this dynamic generates stronger bonds than those that the Covenant may provide.Q: Another issue of paramount importance for the youth movement and the NGLs, Next Generation Latinos, at the General Convention is the issue of same-gender blessing. A very controversial topic at many levels; on one hand we talk about amplitude, openness, tolerance, and some sectors believe that tolerance has clear-cut boundaries. How can we bridge the gap within these two positions within the Episcopal Church?KJS: The Episcopal Church, as other Anglican churches tries to embrace many points of view within the church. We believe that God gives us different gifts and points of view and when we can harmonize these differences we can receive the holy spirit — new creation within the church’s own diversity. If we were to embrace only one point of view, we cannot receive other gifts and opportunities to find God’s creative force.Q: That was, precisely one of the points you made on this past Sunday’s sermon, when you ask everyone to raise their hands – an individual gesture, yet more meaningful when done in unity.On the issue of the Hispanic voice of the Episcopal Church, case in point, this Episcopal WebRadio is a project managed by kids; these are kids doing whatever it takes to have a voice.Can they count on the support of the head of the Episcopal Church to harness that willpower that makes anything possible?KJS: “Yes we can”… “Together we can” … I believe that in general the Episcopal Church is opening its mind and in many dioceses we can find new congregations, Spanish-speaking congregations growing very rapidly, and the Anglo population is taking notice, I believe that this is a great gift for the Episcopal Church and the church is changing.Q: For these youngsters, they see it as an enrichment of the church. They enjoy – as you said – the fact that there are people with different points of view — a wonderful base for a dialogue.KJS: Certainly.Q: In regards to the growth of the Episcopal Church in “other platforms” such as Twitter, Facebook, radio — how much does the Episcopal Church embrace these new channels of communication for ministry?KJS: This is divine inspiration. Inspiration from the Holy Spirit. It is a gift that can be used for the best or the worse. This could be a blessing for all and we should treat it as such.Q: Regarding the Hispanic ministry in the Episcopal Church; it could be seen as a small part of the whole. I tend to see it as another door, another portal. The next generation Latinos are fully bilingual … the Hispanic ministry is more of a cultural nature, of heritage rather than linguistic. How do see this emerging group that feels at ease in two different worlds?KJS: The Episcopal Church in the United States has gone thru experiences like this with other immigrant groups; Germans, French, Swiss. The first generation of immigrants needs to use their mother tongue — we cannot worship in a foreign language. We need to teach [and evangelize] in a context familiar to the worshipers.Q: I know you have a very busy agenda, but I can’t leave out the issue of Latinos in the armed forces. To serve in the military puts people on a very particular situation. They have their own needs but also their families — and then we have the Latinos. A big problem that we see is veterans that upon going back to civilian life lose everything. Many end up homeless; this is very noticeable within Latino [communities]. What is the Episcopal Church doing for those who gave everything to serve?KJS: The congregations must get more involved with people in the military. My daughter is an Air Force pilot. I know that chaplains and others are very interested in their well-being and the congregations must educate themselves around this issue.— Cesar Cardoza is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.

Photo: Diocese of Eastern Michigan[Diocese of Eastern Michigan] The Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan elected the Rt. Rev. Whayne M. Hougland Jr. to serve as bishop provisional of the diocese during their annual convention on Oct. 19, 2019.Bishop Hougland, bishop diocesan of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan, will serve both dioceses concurrently as the two bodies enter into a three- to five-year period of conversation around relationship and shared resources.In a letter to the diocese, the Standing Committee of Eastern Michigan celebrated the decision, saying, “We are excited to be building on our commitment to creative and innovative ministry by entering into this next phase of life for our two dioceses. We don’t know where this relationship will lead, but by placing our trust in the Holy Spirit and committing to the work of discernment and risk-taking, we believe we can build a church responsive to the needs of her people and flexible to the demands of 21st century mission and ministry. Let’s dance!”Bishop Hougland expressed his excitement as well, saying, “We are at the forefront of these kinds of experiments in the church and I think we are uniquely primed to take on this work with good faith, humor, and creativity. I am looking forward to living into these next 3-5 years and to seeing where the Spirit leads!”This next step for the two dioceses is the result of nearly two and a half years of conversation, kicked off by the resignation of former Eastern Michigan Bishop Todd Ousley to become bishop for pastoral development of The Episcopal Church, a position on the presiding bishop’s staff. Following a series of regional and diocesan-wide meetings, the Diocese of Eastern Michigan voted last fall to invite the Diocese of Western Michigan to consent to the nomination of their bishop, the Rt. Rev. Whayne Hougland, to serve as bishop provisional. In the spring, after a series of meetings on the western side of the state, Western Michigan’s Diocesan Council and Standing Committee voted unanimously to accept the invitation.The two dioceses share a number of ministries and resources already, including efforts in congregational development, local formation, mission work, governing bodies, and staff. Combined, the two dioceses are composed of just over 100 congregations and cooperating ministries, and over 12,000 baptized members.

Speaking Up: An innovative less invasive procedure for throat cancer

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Robert Hutson noticed a lump in his throat. While it wasn’t painful it wouldn’t go away.Robert Hutson, of Oviedo, noticed a lump in his throat. While it wasn’t painful, it wouldn’t go away.From Florida Hospital – ApopkaIt was during a business meeting in January 2013 that Robert Hutson, of Oviedo, noticed a lump in his throat. While it wasn’t painful, it wouldn’t go away.A healthy, active nonsmoker, Robert didn’t think much about it until a neighbor insisted he see a doctor. He made an appointment with Henry Ho, MD, otolaryngologist, at Florida Hospital.Robert learned he had throat cancer that had spread to his tonsils and his tongue. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. A TIMELY TREATMENT DEVELOPMENTAlthough Robert would need surgery, Dr. Ho was able to offer him a less invasive alternative to a conventional procedure: transoral robotic surgery.“Traditional surgery requires an open incision in the neck that may result in speech or swallowing difficulties,” he says. “Robotic surgery, done through the mouth, is minimally invasive. It’s been shown to improve long-term swallowing function while speeding up the recovery time.”Robert underwent surgery that March and didn’t require radiation, chemotherapy or speech therapy after a portion of his tongue was removed. Then in November, during a regular follow-up visit, Dr. Ho noticed an abnormality near the surgery site.“Dr. Ho set up a CT scan right away because he was concerned,” Robert says. “Sure enough, the cancer had returned.”Henry Nai-Hsin Ho, MD Again, Robert underwent robotic surgery, and because the cancer had reappeared so quickly, he also underwent radiation and chemotherapy. Dr. Ho doesn’t foresee him needing additional treatment.A SURPRISING CANCER SOURCERobert learned his cancer was caused by HPV, the human papillomavirus. Most women know strains of HPV can cause cervical cancer, but there are also strains that can lead to cancer of the middle throat.Robert’s case highlights the growing trend of HPV caused head and neck cancers. (More commonly, the cancers have been associated with tobacco use.) Dr. Ho says the number of men in their 50s, like Robert, with HPV-related cancers in their throat and tonsils, is increasing. It’s estimated by 2020, HPV will cause more oral than cervical cancer in the US.The good news, says Dr. Ho, is that 90 percent of HPV throat cancers are curable.SHARING THE KNOWLEDGERobert now makes an effort to educate his community about preventing HPV. “I had no idea men could develop cancer from HPV, so I tell my friends they should talk with their sons as well as their daughters about HPV,” says Robert. “This is preventable.”SEE THE WARNING SIGNSMost head and neck cancers begin in the squamous cells that line the surfaces inside the head and neck. Typical symptoms include a lump or sore (for example, in the mouth) that does not heal, a sore throat that does not go away, difficulty swallowing and hoarseness or other changes in the voice.– For the complete article and for a video on the subject, go here.center_img Please enter your name here Please enter your comment!

Protesters denounce racism, war and Islamophobia

This climate of fear had seemingly paralyzed many local progressive forces.The rally included representatives from the Nation of Islam, Christians Witnessing for Palestine and local Palestinian refugees. A large banner proclaimed: “Say No to Racism, War, Police Violence, and Anti-Muslim and Anti-Immigrant Bashing.”The protest received significant local media coverage, including on two TV stations. “As you can see, there is an anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim hysteria going on around the country by politicians and their supporters,” organizer Lydia Bayoneta told the media. “We are here first and foremost to say that all refugees are welcome, no matter what country [they are from], whether it be Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, occupied Palestine and all the countries that have been ravaged with war and poverty.”Protesters denounced the racist demagogy, which is not only demonizing Muslims and other immigrants, but trying to distract people from the issues of police terror, inequality, lack of jobs and poverty in the United States.WW photo: Lydia BayonetaFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

How To Financially Position Your Farm for Survival

Evan Hahn, with Farm Credit Mid-America, says figuring your farm’s working capital will give you a clear  picture of what your profit picture looks like this growing season, “Working capital is the financial indicator to measure an operations assets and liabilities over a production cycle.” He added this measure does not indicate an operation’s long term sustainability but can be very valuable in making that assessment.The extreme market volatility we have seen determining the value grain you have on hand or plan to sell this fall may make estimating your working capital difficult. “It can be challenging for customers and at times for us as we look at a balance sheet,” Hahn states. “We encourage farmers to use realistic prices. There is always a high and a low in the market and not everybody hits that high or low. Just be realistic when you are determining the value of your assets or inventories you have on hand.”Hahn says your working capital analysis will help you what you need to do to set up your operation to survive long term, “Ideally we would like to see farms with enough working capital to withstand multiple years of loss, but as a bare minimum we want an operation to be able to cover at least one year of loss.” For many producers, this year may be that year. Thus, figuring your working capital will help you position your operation for sustainability in 2017 and 2018. If you run your working capital report and don’t like the numbers you see, Hahn says, “Come in and see us, and we will work with you and offer some recommendations.”For more financial resources and recommendations, visit https://e-farmcredit.com/home?utm_expid=86039745-7.1MQDQqTiQrSURlsUHHHlvQ.0 Facebook Twitter How To Financially Position Your Farm for Survival By Gary Truitt – Jul 26, 2016 Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more
