The FTSE 100 has fallen by roughly 23% in the year-to-date as share prices slumped due to the coronavirus outbreak. The damage that the crisis will cause the global economy is still unknown, which is understandably making investors feel uneasy. It is certainly a risky time to be investing in shares for the short term.However, the FTSE 100 has crashed multiple times since its inception in 1984. After each fall, the market has climbed higher and regained its previous losses.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…Of course, the past might not repeat itself. However, there are already signs that the market might be rebounding, with the FTSE 100 climbing by 17% since March 23. I think now could a great time for long-term buyers of FTSE 100 shares.Buying FTSE 100 sharesIn this stock market crash, some investors might feel that buying FTSE 100 shares carries too much risk. Consequently, consideration might be given to other investments like cryptocurrencies.But cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, have no underlying value. This is one of the reasons why its price can fluctuate wildly. When you purchase shares, you are buying part of a real business. And the recent drop in share prices means that some quality UK companies could be trading at a level below intrinsic value.For example, Unilever’s share price has fallen by almost 7% in the year-to-date. It is currently trading with a price-to-earnings ratio of just 18. I believe that many of its low-cost products — like Marmite and Domestos — will still be in demand through the crisis and when things start turning back to normal.Time in the marketInvesting in stocks and shares successfully usually requires a long-term outlook. Even Warren Buffett admits that he is unable to predict what the market will do in the next year or two. Although FTSE 100 shares have been rocked by the coronavirus outbreak, by looking back, we can see that long-term investing is usually a good strategy. For example, the FTSE 100 has returned 66% since March 2009 without even including dividend payments. Fellow Fool Rupert Hargreaves notes that over the past three-and-a-half decades, the FTSE 100 has returned an average of 7%.There is another benefit to buying stocks for the long-term. This is known as compound interest and its benefits become more fruitful the longer the investment remains in the market. With an investment of £1,000 and a 7% average return over two years, your initial sum will return you almost £140. If we increase the period to 10 years, the same return of 7% will almost double your initial investment. Amazingly, using this example, if you left £1,000 to compound with a 7% return for 20 years, you would end up with £3,869. By buying shares at regular intervals and reinvesting dividends to purchase more shares, investors can super-charge their returns even further. With some FTSE 100 shares trading at recent lows, I will be looking for bargain buys that will benefit from the market’s likely long-term recovery and will leave the returns to compound.

An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Posted May 4, 2017 Archbishop of Canterbury visits Holocaust museum with chief rabbi after praying at Western Wall [Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis have visited Israel’s Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem, to remember and lament the tragedy of the Holocaust and the implications and effects it has subsequently had on so many lives. Earlier they prayed for peace at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.Speaking at Yad Vashem, the archbishop acknowledged the history of anti-Semitism in the Anglican Church and restated his commitment to continue efforts to stop anti-Semitism.Full article.

To locate yet another Holocaust “learning centre” next door to the Houses of Parliament will accomplish nothing except to inspire additional feelings of anti-semitism among those who without in any way being “Holocaust deniers” believe that there are indeed other things in today’s world that matter.

Area: 210 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs: Carlos Pesqueira Calvo Save this picture!© Carlos Pesqueira CalvoThe possibility of acting and reflecting on the edge of a hill opposite the wonderful landscape that is the vast reservoir in Orellana (Badajoz, Spain) is a unique and unrepeatable experience. This project aims to conceptualize the feelings, attitudes and actions of the environment and then to shape them through the demanded typologies. Save this picture!planThis process is based on looking, seeing and contemplating. According to this idea some pieces are designed to be temporarily occupied and they empty out their whole inner space into the horizon. This kind of occupation determines the solid and severe shape of the building made of concrete. This shape surrounds the space and leans out of the hill as a folded hollow.

ClevelandOver 100 supporters of the Metanoia Project, which provides trauma-sensitive respite to homeless people in Cleveland, packed City Council chambers on Jan. 6. They were there to support efforts of Denison United Church of Christ to continue the work of Metanoia, which lost bed space at its original location in November. Pastor Nozomi Ikuta describes the partnership as “protected and essential expression of our faith.”Protest to keep homeless shelter open inside Cleveland City Council chambers, Jan. 6.City Councilwoman Dona Brady, who represents Ward 11 where Denison UCC is located, is trying to use claims of housing and fire code violations to keep the church from housing the homeless. She has even tried to revoke its designation as a church.“We’re here to say: Keep Metanoia open, support Denison UCC, build a cold-weather plan, and take a stand against NIMBYism (Not In My Back Yard) and racism in our community,” said Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless Executive Director Chris Knestrick.Activists inside the meeting interrupted proceedings to invoke the memory of Lorraine Van De Venter and Juan Proctor, homeless people who froze to death during one brutal Cleveland winter. Police attempted to confiscate all the paper signs that read “Ward 11 supports Denison UCC” and “Keep Metanoia at Denison UCC.” After the meeting ended, the crowd burst into loud chanting of “Keep the shelter open,” holding up signs that had escaped detection by the police.Hours after the council meeting protest, the church was hit with a surprise visit by two inspectors from the Cleveland Fire Department, escorted by six police. Acting at the behest of pro-gentrification Councilwoman Brady, the inspectors affixed a “Cease Use” notice on the church door on Christmas Eve. Denison UCC appealed the order.The church passed the inspection, which was a victory. So far, because of militant community support and Pastor Ikuta’s determination, this homeless shelter is staying open.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

It has emerged that two other journalists received similar summonses today.“The international community, which has already made too many concessions to the Uzbek authorities, should make a concerted effort to protect the country’s few remaining independent journalists and prevent a new crackdown,” Reporters Without Borders said.“At least 10 journalists are already in prison in Uzbekistan just for doing their job and some of them are serving long sentences,” the press freedom organisation continued. “Can one reasonably claim that the human rights situation under this dictatorship has improved? Must one sacrifice one’s principles for the sake of access to the country’s energy resources? Alternatives exist. Europe must not stop defending human rights.”The five journalist who were “invited” yesterday to the office of assistant prosecutor Bakhrom Nurmatov were Marina Kozlova, Sid Yanishev (also known as Said Abdurahimov), Khusnutdin Kutbetdinov, Abdumalik Babayev and Vasiliy Markov. Two of the five refused to go on the grounds that it was not a formal summons.Nurmatov told the other three they had been summoned to “clarify the circumstances of their professional activities.” He had a file on each of them which he said contained information gathered by the national security agency and the foreign ministry.Most of Nurmatov’s questions were about the financial support they receive from abroad, whether from foreign journalists or international organisations. He described some of their articles as “biased and tendentious” and as a “slight on the dignity of the Uzbek government.”The two journalists who received similar summonses today were Alexey Volosevich and Andrey Kudryashov. The former was summoned on 8 January, to the prosecutor’s office. The latter had a “chat” the same day with the head of media at the foreign ministry, who handles accreditation.In both cases, the journalists were free to go after the meeting. But Uzbekistan specialists contacted by Reporters Without Borders expressed concern about the development.Marcus Bensmann, a freelance journalist specialising in Central Asia and Uzbekistan, saw the summonses as the start of another and final crackdown with the aim of “destroying once and for all what remains of an independent press in this county.” His view was shared by Galima Bukharbayeva, the editor of the Uznews website.“On the basis of their relations with Europe, especially Germany, and with the United States, whose war against terrorism in Afghanistan they are supporting, the Uzbek authorities apparently consider themselves to be in a position of strength,” Bensmann said. “It is unlikely that they are going to be inclined to show tolerance towards journalists and human rights activists.”Speaking on condition of anonymity, a journalist employed in Uzbekistan by a foreign news organisation told Reporters Without Borders: “The authorities intend to use the need to have accreditation to exercise the closest possible control over the remaining independent journalists.”Under Uzbek legislation, the employees of foreign news media are required to obtain accreditation from the foreign ministry. At the same time, since 2005 and the ruthless suppression of an uprising in the eastern city of Andijan, the foreign ministry has been withdrawing the accreditation of leading international news media such as the BBC and Reuters, whose representatives have been forced to leave the country.Free expression and press freedom are constantly violated in Uzbekistan, and a new crackdown would decimate the country’s already embattled journalistic community. At least 10 journalists including Solidzhon Abdurakhmanov, Jamshid Karimov and Sayid Dilmurod and the writer Yusuf Juma are currently imprisoned in Uzbekistan. Photographer and documentary-maker Umida Akhmedova is also being targeted by the judicial authorities.Despite Uzbekistan’s disastrous human rights record, the last of the sanctions (an embargo on arms sales) imposed on President Islam Karimov’s autocratic regime after the 2005 bloodshed in Andijan was lifted by the European Union on 27 October.

Witnesses said the shots were fired by gunmen in a car.Previously employed by the independent weekly Savana and state-owned Radio Moçambique, Machava recently expressed support for journalists who are being prosecuted in violation of the 2014 amnesty law on a charge of defaming the president.“It is extremely disturbing that a leading journalist has been gunned down on one of the capital’s street,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“Whatever its origin, this is a message of extraordinary violence.

Chalabala/iStock(NEW YORK) — The death of the leader of one of the world’s most notorious terror groups may end a particularly brutal saga in the Middle East, but law enforcement and intelligence officials are on alert for possible retaliation from sympathizers or sleeper operatives in the U.S.Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder and leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — or ISIS — died on Sunday as a result of a raid executed by U.S. special forces in Syria. Authorities say, however, that despite a diminished physical caliphate and vacancy at its highest rank, ISIS has still been able to influence vulnerable populations abroad via online message boards and social media groups.The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement Monday that its “operating at a heightened state of vigilance” as it and other agencies assess the potential for retaliation against al-Baghdadi’s death from terror cells or ISIS sympathizers in the U.S., though a specific threat has yet to be identified.“Our security posture will remain agile, we will continue to mitigate and respond to the ever evolving threat landscape,” a DHS spokesperson said.Authorities’ concerns about reaction to al-Baghdadi’s death come amid an already elevated level of alert for terrorist attacks.The FBI recently released information that said that one in five active terrorism investigations in the U.S. involved ISIS followers or sympathizers spanning virtually every state.On Friday, before al-Baghdadi’s death was announced, New York and federal authorities — including the New York City Police Department, DHS and the FBI — issued a security assessment of the upcoming New York City Marathon that highlighted the threat of ISIS-related attacks, among other categories.In it, authorities detailed how ISIS sympathizers disseminated propaganda urging attacks in New York and cited as examples recent foiled terror plots in the U.S., including a plot in New York to attack bystanders with a knife and one near Washington, D.C., that involved using a van to run over pedestrians.ISIS has typically encouraged followers and sympathizers abroad to carry out attacks in areas they live in using whatever means available to them.In 2015, 14 people were killed and 22 were injured in San Bernardino, California, after a local married couple opened fire and attempted to bomb a workplace Christmas party. Authorities later said the couple were not directly affiliated with ISIS, but instead had been radicalized over years of consuming the terror group’s propaganda online.And in 2017, a man ultimately killed eight people in New York after driving a rented truck about three-quarters of a mile on a bicycle path, aiming for cyclists and pedestrians. Authorities told ABC News at the time that the suspect left a note proclaiming his attack was on ISIS’s behalf. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
