A second stock market crash is coming, I think. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to waste it. Instead, we should do all we can to get rich from it. Reasons for the second stock market crashThere are plenty of reasons to expect a second market crash, indeed. To start with, there’s the coronavirus pandemic, which is far from over. The Covid-19 situation in the UK and the US is really complicated. I think it will take quite a while to contain the pandemic.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…But the economic consequences will most probably take even longer to resolve. By this I mean the problems of the resulting unemployment and low consumer demand. Tensions between the US and China also pose a risk to investor sentiment. The US elections contribute even more to the overall uncertainty.These problems will, in my view, lead to another stock market crash. But we should not waste it!Here are some of the most common reasons why people don’t manage to profit from crashes. Psychological reasons for not taking advantageMy colleague Stepan Lavrouk gave some very good reasons for investors failing to get rich. One is simply the lack of ability to choose companies. Many people behave like children in a candy shop. They like too many stocks but fail to choose a few. There’s also the inability to stick to their shares for a long time. One of the reasons why Warren Buffett, the Sage of Omaha, is such a successful investor is because he likes to hold his winning stocks for years if not decades. In other words, time is the best friend of ‘good’ holdings and an enemy of ‘low-quality possessions’. Daniel KahnemanBut there’s another big reason for failing to succeed. Daniel Kahneman, a great psychologist, explained why some people don’t take advantage of a stock market crash. Kahneman says that human beings like to get either overoptimistic about their investments or too pessimistic. So, when prices rise and get too high, they like to buy. At the same time, when prices fall and there are in fact plenty of bargains, they like to panic-sell their shares. Just because the price of an asset has fallen, it might in fact seem to be riskier than it used to. Likewise, if the price of a stock has risen, it might seem to be a much safer investment. But in fact the opposite is true! That’s why many people cannot get rich from a stock market crash.Some people are also prone to biases. They like to judge the current situation according to the most vivid examples they know. For example, after the Great Depression was over, many analysts said that shares were nothing but speculative instruments because the memory of the crash was too vivid. But in fact many companies were really great value for money at the time because they were cheap. Some investors don’t like to buy anything after a stock market crash has already happened. That’s often because a friend of theirs lost plenty of money during the great recession of 2008–09.       After having read about some of the most common biases, I am sure you won’t waste another stock market crash.  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.

Overseas signings add glamour but the Premiership must not lose its identity

first_imgSale Sharks34.2%55.3% Wasps21.4%54.8% Full English: Stars like Ben Youngs are unlikely to lose their places in their club sidesOn the other hand, you have Leicester’s new-look back line. Ben Youngs and Manu Tuilagi are unlikely to lose their places, but with Toomua, Pietersen, Owen Williams, Telusa Veainu and Peter Betham (and Jean de Villiers if his contract is extended) all contracted at Welford Road next season, it’s difficult to see where other English-qualified players are going to get their opportunities.Yes, the likes of Matt Smith, Mathew Tait and Freddie Burns will be rotated in and used as depth, but then where does the experience come from for emerging talents such as George Catchpole, Paolo Odogwu and Jacob Umaga?The table below details the percentages of 2015/16 Premiership squads which have been produced at the club’s own academy, as well as the proportion of those squads that are English-qualified. For the purposes of this article, only players on senior contracts with the clubs were counted. Exeter Chiefs20.9%67.4% By Alex Shaw‘Tis the season of spending in the Aviva Premiership, as owners up and down the country dust off the chequebooks to bolster their squads ahead of the 2016/17 season.Springbok legend Schalk Burger has been snapped up by Saracens, French behemoth Louis Picamoles by Northampton Saints, Welsh back rower Taulupe Faletau has been snaffled by Bath, while Leicester Tigers have announced the impending arrivals of both Matt Toomua and JP Pietersen, adding further cutting edge to their back line.The £1m increase to the senior salary cap for the 2016/17 season (which will be further increased by an additional £500k for the 2017/18 season) has certainly seen Premiership clubs enjoy increased ability to compete with the big-spending French clubs, despite the Top 14’s salary cap still comfortably exceeding that of the Premiership.Marquee signing: World Cup winner Schalk Burger is heading for the PremiershipWhilst understandably enjoying this freedom to spend and attract some of the best players in the world, Premiership Directors of Rugby need to be careful they don’t ignore their academies and lose the identity of their sides in the process.English rugby has the luxury of being able to pick players from a top tier of 12 clubs. Consequently, there is not the onus on Premiership clubs to field almost universally native squads, such as you would find in Wales, Ireland or any of the southern hemisphere nations. Like France and the Top 14, England can prosper (contrary to recent results for both nations) with a lower percentage of home-grown players in Premiership squads than we currently see in the Guinness PRO12 or Super Rugby.With increased money being pumped into the Premiership clubs via TV deals, improved attendances and the support of ambitious owners, English rugby now sits at a crossroads.France’s loss: The percieved strength of the Top 14 has damaged France at Test levelIf they take the road travelled by the French sides and continue to import foreign talents, they risk damaging the English national team. Whilst club owners may argue that is not their responsibility to ensure the English national team is successful or that, quite rightly, there is still plenty of French talent in the Top 14 despite those clubs heavily importing, it’s a dangerous path to tread.Down the other road, they have balance. Teams supplementing home-grown squads with a handful of star players, keeping themselves competitive in the European Rugby Champions Cup and continuing to contribute heavily to the England squad. It’s not quite walking a tightrope, but it’s a hard balance to strike and then, importantly, maintain.Saracens are one side who seem to have found this equilibrium. They will add Burger to a back row likely consisting of Will Fraser and Billy Vunipola next season, whilst the first choice tight five will also feature Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Mako Vunipola and Jamie George. There’s no doubt that Burger adds to that group, making them more competitive in the Premiership and Europe, and his experience will be of real benefit to those young English players. With a phalanx of rugby superstars converging on England a note of caution must be issued to make sure the Premiership avoids diluting its hard-earned identity Worcester Warriors16.7%58.3% Northampton Saints24.3%72.9% Newcastle Falcons26.8%46.3% Gloucester31.7%58.5% LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Bath23.7%71.1% London Irish15%45% Level-playing field: Aviva Premiership clubs are strengthening to compete in Europe Saracens30.2%58.1% Of course, there are hidden stories and mitigating circumstances behind many of those numbers. London Irish, who sit at the bottom of both categories, have recently seen many of their star home-grown players leave for ‘bigger’ clubs, while Worcester and Newcastle have both recruited heavily to try and avoid relegation.The percentages for Exeter, Harlequins, Northampton and Saracens, in both categories, could well rise over the next few months as many of their talented current academy crops are given senior contracts, but there is concern at clubs such as Bath, Leicester and Wasps.Academy graduate: Jack Clifford is one of many successful Harlequins academy productsBath and Leicester have a plethora of gifted individuals floating around their academy and ‘A’ sides but with owners impatient for success and DoRs keen to remain in employment, recruiting has taken over as the preferred way of improving their squads. With their confirmed signings and departures for the ‘16/17 season, Bath’s percentage of academy products will dwindle to below 20%, whilst Leicester’s EQP selection will almost certainly fall below the 50% mark.The percentage of English or EQ players is currently at a level which should allow Eddie Jones and his assistants to put together a successful national team, but if it drops much further, it will begin to put pressure on the Australian. Across the 12 Premiership clubs, there are around 280 players available to England who are on senior contracts, although obviously not all of those players are regulars for their clubs.English rugby is fortunate that this wave of new money into the Premiership has coincided with a generation of extremely-gifted young English players. The work Stuart Lancaster did with the age-grades as Head of Elite Development and the improvements that the clubs have made individually with their academies has been bearing plenty of fruit, and very few DoRs will be given the easy excuse of saying they have to import talent because it’s not there to be developed at their own clubs. Harlequins47.4%71.1% Club% of squad from own academy% of squad English-qualified Leicester Tigers30.4%52.2% England expects: Eddie Jones will hope the strength-in-depth doesn’t drop furtherFans want to see local players representing their clubs out on the pitch. Players who have learnt their trade in the club’s academy, worked their way up through the 2nd XV and, finally, get to wear the shirt of the club they love at the highest level.Premiership sides can seemingly afford a lot of things these days, but losing their identity is not one of them.last_img read more

The Bench of Justice Navin Chawla has directed the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to consider the petitioner’s complaint and take a decision on it within four weeks. The petition, filed through Advocate Joby P. Varghese, alleges that the channel made repeated attempts to paint the event of mob lynching at Palghar, Maharashtra into a communal event, creating fear in the mind of common man. “The entire show was aimed at promoting enmity between different religious groups by communalizing and politicizing the incident,” it said. It was further alleged that migrant gatherings at Bandra in Mumbai were given the tag of a ‘gigantic conspiracy’ in another programme by the same media house. It was pointed out that the self-regulatory body— National Broadcasters Association (NBA) does not have the jurisdiction to probe Republic TV channel as it is not a member of the said organization. Hence a direction was sought against the Ministry to consider the complaint and pass appropriate orders therein. Pandey contended that the channel had violated the rules of Programme Code prescribed under the Cable Television Regulations and also the Uplinking and Downlinking guidelines issued by the Ministry. She has therefore sought for a direction upon the Ministry to take appropriate action against the channel and also frame rules in the nature of Cable Television Network Rules, 1994 to formulate a statutory body which shall adjudicate the complaints against television channels within a predetermined limitation period along with Appellate and other redressal mechanism.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The Annandagstoppane granite, East Antarctica: evidence for Archaean intracrustal recycling in the Kaapvaal-Grunehogna Craton from zircon O and Hf isotopes

first_imgThe Grunehogna Craton (GC, East Antarctica) is interpreted as part of the Archaean Kaapvaal Craton of southern Africa prior to Gondwana breakup. The basement of the GC is exposed only within a small area comprising the dominantly leucocratic Annandagstoppane (ADT) S-type granite. The granite (and hence the craton) has been dated previously only by Rb–Sr and Pb–Pb mica and whole-rock methods. Here, the crystallization age of the granite is determined to be 3067 ± 8 Ma by U–Pb dating of zircon. This age is coeval with that of granitoids and volcanic rocks in the Swaziland and Witwatersrand blocks of the Kaapvaal Craton. Inherited grains in the ADT granite have ages of up to 3433 ± 7 Ma, and are the first evidence of Palaeoarchaean basement in Dronning Maud Land. The age spectrum of the inherited grains reflects well-known tectono-magmatic events in the Kaapvaal Craton and forms important evidence for the connection of the GC to the Kaapvaal Craton for at least 2·5 billion years and probably longer. Whole-rock chemistry and zircon O isotopes demonstrate a supracrustal sedimentary source for the granite, and Hf model ages show that at least two or three crustal sources contributed to the magma with model ages of ∼3·50, ∼3·75 and possibly ∼3·90 Ga. The 3·1 Ga granites covering ∼60% of the outcrop area of the Kaapvaal–Grunehogna Craton played a major role in the mechanical stabilization of the continental crust during the establishment of the craton in the Mesoarchaean. Combined zircon Hf–O isotope data and the lack of juvenile additions to the crust in the Mesoarchaean strongly suggest that crustal melting and granite formation was caused by the deep burial of clastic sediments and subsequent incubational heating of the crust. Intracrustal recycling of this type may be an important process during cratonization and the long-term stabilization of continental crust.last_img read more

Gradfeed goes back to university to drive recruitment

first_imgGradfeed, the platform that channels students into the property industry careers, is focusing efforts on driving inclusion and diversity in the property industry across the UK-student network.Gradfeed has achieved the backing of key RICS-accredited universities, launched their student ambassador programme and held property-focused events for students from a wide and diverse background all with the intention of improving awareness of opportunity within the profession. “It’s great to hear first-hand the positive impact our vision is having on students from all backgrounds,” said Co-Founder, Gerard McVeigh. “Broadening knowledge of businesses, the various opportunities and routes into the industry enables students to make an informed decision when considering their future applications.”With the likes of CBRE, Marsh & Parsons, Fisher German and AECOM all joining the initiative, Gradfeed is growing its employer network providing students with a clear path into the industry.Gradfeed has recently strengthened it’s offering by launching the RICS-accredited university profiles which enables students from varied subject backgrounds to research and apply for courses at Postgraduate level that fits with their preferred real estate discipline.All of this activity has led to growth in both employer and student sign-ups across the country. www.gradfeed.comGradfeed proptech student accommodation students January 22, 2020Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?
