The FTSE 100 is rising fast. Is the stock market crash over?

first_imgThe FTSE 100 is rising fast. Is the stock market crash over? The FTSE 100 has fallen by more than 25% so far this year. But since last Monday, the index is up by about 10%. If you’re invested in shares, you’re probably breathing a sigh of relief. But is the stock market crash really over?In this article, I’ll explain where I think the FTSE 100 is likely to go next. I’ll also look at why I believe that the market is currently offering us some of the best buying opportunities since the financial crisis.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…Where next for the FTSE 100?Earthquakes are often followed by aftershocks, which can be severe. In my experience, it’s often the same with stock market crashes.In the 2008/09 crash, for example, the FTSE 100 made two new lows under 4,500 before plunging to its final low point of 3,512. The good news is that within six months, the FTSE was back above 5,000 — a rise of more than 40% from its lowest point.Market crashes don’t follow a fixed pattern. But I think that last week’s 4,993 low was probably the bottom for the FTSE 100. Despite this, I expect to see a lot more volatility over the next few weeks. I also think there’s a good chance the index could drop back towards 5,000 again before staging another rally.How I’d handle the volatilityMany big FTSE 100 stocks are currently moving up and down by as much as 10% each day. Such big moves are unusual for larger companies, whose share prices are usually quite stable.You may be tempted to try and trade these wild swings, but I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s incredibly difficult to catch such moves, most of which take place when the market opens. The only certainty is that you’ll spend a lot of money on dealing fees.What I’m doing with the FTSE 100Economies around the world are currently battened down in an effort to slow the coronavirus pandemic. No one quite knows what’s happening and everyone is worried. Companies are cutting dividends and desperately hoarding cash.That’s the story today and probably for the next few weeks or months. But when we look beyond this, I think investors will start to realise that the world will recover from the coronavirus pandemic.The latest news from China shows that factories are open again and movement restrictions are being lifted. At some point, the same will happen in the west. Companies will be able to trade normally again, and will issue new profit guidance for 2020 and 2021.I’m buying FTSE 100 stocks ahead of a future recovery. I don’t know when things will return to normal, but I’m sure that they will.Buy today or wait?It’s tempting to wait until the picture becomes clearer before you start to buy. The problem with this approach is that the market always looks forward. As soon as good news is on the horizon, I expect share prices to rise.History suggests that big wins in the stock market come from following Warren Buffett’s advice to be “greedy when others are fearful”.As I write, the FTSE 100 is trading on about 12 times earnings. I’d be very surprised if investors who buy at this level don’t make money over the next few years.

The challenge was to build a weekend house, in Caleu a small town one hour away from Santiago (the capital of Chile), with a limited budget. Caleu´s climate (located in the Coastal Mountain Range) presents drastic temperature changes in the different seasons throughout the year.Save this picture!© Alvaro ReyesRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaSlabs – StoneSkylightsVELUX CommercialModular Skylights – Ridgelight at 5° with BeamRailing / BalustradesC.R. LaurenceGRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing SystemThe house is located on the only flat plane that we found on the site and built on the ruins of an old house. This was the favorable site due to its flat condition, orientation towards the sun, and its privileged view. We considered, as well, the experience of the previous owner who used to live in an adobe house oriented east-west on its long side.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe program of the house is solved in a rectangle of 7,35 x 14,7 m side, which contains a central public area (living and dining room along with the kitchen) that separates two sleeping areas, the master bedroom on one side and two smaller bedrooms on the other side. All of the areas are connected by an outer corridor with a width of 1,20 m towards the east; this corridor provides a covered roof in winter and a wonderful shade in summer. It is definitely in summer where the corridor plays its most important role.Save this picture!© Diego OrtuzarFor this project we used two materials to establish the structure of the house. First, the pine structure, composed of three joined planks of 2×5” that allowed us to set up the length we needed to structure the house. Second, plywood boards were used to brace the columns and beams as structural elements and remained as the interior material of the house; in other words, the structure and aesthetics of the project are built by the same elements, therefore there are no extra finishing materials, and everything is within sight. Save this picture!© Diego OrtuzarProject gallerySee allShow lessBadel Block Complex Proposal / Luka Anic, Danko Balog, Tamara Baresic, Srdan GajicArticlesECR (re)Center / 5G Studio CollaborativeArticles Share Save this picture!© Alvaro Reyes+ 18 Share Houses CopyAbout this officearquitectos asociados.loOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTiltilWoodHousesChilePublished on June 22, 2012Cite: “Caleu House / arquitectos asociados.lo” 22 Jun 2012.

Some houses close in on themselves when connection with their surroundings is not desirable. However, others open up to their setting when it is clear that it endows them with qualities and provides their raison d’être and hence must become an intrinsic part of the project. This is the case of the Juncal y Rodney home since it is built on a plot of land located on the Begur massif (Girona) in one of the most sublime settings of the Costa Brava. The longitudinal volume of the north-south-facing building of two storeys – the upper one with three bedrooms and the lower one with the shared spaces – is thus open to the Mediterranean and the series of mountains and coves that are glimpsed on the horizon.Save this picture!© José HeviaThis, then, is a house opening out towards distant views, although it is protected from behind by means of levelling work on the steeply sloping land. Indeed, the construction clings to a long continuous wall running parallel with the access road and joined to a shorter wall aligned with the dividing wall of the neighbouring plot. These walls are finished with local stone, as are the masonry walls of the site. They therefore shape the land into a large terrace, while also providing the backdrop for the construction.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe house is entered via the upper floor, from the downwards sloping road, at the highest point of its land. This entrance clearly divides the volume into two parts, which are linked by means of a central courtyard offering views of the rocks remaining after the excavation work on the plot. Apart from the entrance porch, this bare space is connected to the stairway which is set into the façade overlooking the garden and, accordingly, accentuates the division of the house into two parts.Save this picture!© José HeviaActing as a kind of areaway, another smaller courtyard on the southwest corner affords views of the rocky landscape from inside the house, which is also the case with the kitchen. Consequently, although the volume is attached to the stone retaining wall, the latter is breached by these two courtyards, letting light in and opening up visual perspectives between the two levels of the house. All of this is further enriched by the set-back volumes, the cantilevered balconies and overhanging terraces.Save this picture!© José HeviaA considerable part of the land has been left free since the house has been built in one of its corners, which means that a large, flat and open platform projects out towards the horizon. This level ground provides the necessary leisure spaces for a home that is mainly occupied in the summer. The terraces, the garden, the barbecue and swimming pool are therefore an integral part of the inside spaces of the living room, dining room and kitchen, which have been left totally open by means of large plate glass windows. This spatial continuity is framed by the lift-slab of the upper storey which projects beyond the outer limit of the lower floor.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe contrast between the two storeys is evident since one is opaque and compartmentalised, while the other is open and diaphanous. The Juncal y Rodney home is, then, a pavilion of bedrooms floating over a platform that offers different spaces for good living. The fanning-out form, by means of which the project is essentially designed – freeing corners in the upper part and literally opening out to the sea in the lower part – unequivocally establishes relationships between the house and the sea, the plot of land and the craggy geography of the Costa Brava, the rocky ground and the spectacle of Mediterranean skies. This is a house built between rocks and horizon.Project gallerySee allShow lessGG Bioclimatic House / Alventosa Morell ArquitectesSelected ProjectsCasa E246 / Ezequiel Amado CattaneoSelected Projects Share Casa Juncal & Rodney / Pepe Gascon CopyAbout this officePepe GascónOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBegurSpainPublished on June 02, 2014Cite: “Casa Juncal & Rodney / Pepe Gascon ” 02 Jun 2014.

PivotFiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesText description provided by the architects. Located within an eclectic community in the north end of Halifax, Nova Scotia is a self-commissioned mixed use project by Susan Fitzgerald Architecture and her builder partner Brainard Fitzgerald. Neighbors include: the city crematorium, the Centre for Islamic Development Mosque, a print shop, a legal marijuana grow operation, a recycling depot, a coffee roaster and cafe, a car dealership, an automobile repair shop, condominiums and the sparse remnants of row-housing from the early 1900s. Within the 25’ x 100’ lot, this project contributes to the rich character of this community where the converging conditions of affordable land, rapid growth and light industry suggest an uncertain future. Advocating ways to maintain and enrich the diversity in the neighborhood, this project increases density, community and livability.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanConsisting of three separate units, each with entrances at grade, the program for the project includes: an office space for an architecture and contractor firm with equipment storage; a dwelling for a family of four with a dog and two cats; and a two-storey live/work rental studio apartment. Programmatic and spatial flexibility enables the commercial and residential spaces to contract or expand into one another based upon the viability of the business, and ever changing family circumstances as children mature and grandparents age. Landscaped spaces are integrated throughout the whole project to offer respite within the city and support the cultivation of vegetables and flowers.Save this picture!© Greg RichardsonBuilding code regulations dictate a plan with minimal glazing on the side-yard property lines and the need for non-combustible cladding and materials. The shared driveway to the north of the property reduces the ground floor plan by four feet. It determines the location of the link and the need for a cantilevered piano nobile.Save this picture!© Greg RichardsonThe board-form concrete and corrugated metal complement the language of the surrounding industrial sheds and work within the budget constraints of the project. Used as both structure and finished material, the concrete slabs and walls provide thermal mass for passive solar energy received during the afternoon and morning and time-of-day electrical metering. Wood decks, soffits and stairs unfold throughout the building, creating planters on the roof and flower beds at grade.Save this picture!SectionConventional spaces within the house are reconsidered. Children’s bedrooms are conceived as compact private cubbies with sliding doors, much like sleeper cars on a train, offering small, cozy spaces for sleep that encourage integration with the household at other times. The courtyard functions as a sheltered winter parking space, children’s play area, outdoor workspace, and flower garden. Every part of the plan is accessible, with growing areas on all the roofs. Raising the living spaces above the ground floor improves light, provides views, and lends privacy from the everyday life of the street.Save this picture!© Greg RichardsonOn a macro level, this project re-imagines the limiting site conditions typically found in Halifax – namely, long and narrow Victorian lots – and creates a new mixed use urban typology based on a modern rendition of the side hall plan. Stretching the form across the site allows daylight into the plan and ground-floor access to multiple units through an inner courtyard.Save this picture!© Greg RichardsonLayering dwelling, working and cultivation into this tight city lot, the project, at its small scale, suggests ways of recalibrating our cities to integrate an edible second nature, creating spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, aromatic, educational and productive, and actively participating in the densification and livability of the city.Save this picture!© Greg RichardsonProject gallerySee allShow lessAn Interview with Xu Tian Tian, DnA Design and ArchitectureInterviewsCould the Empire State Building Have Been Built with Wood?Architecture News Share Live_Work_Grow House / Susan Fitzgerald ArchitectureSave this projectSaveLive_Work_Grow House / Susan Fitzgerald Architecture Projects Architects: Susan Fitzgerald Architecture Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Car thief vows to ‘turn his life around’

first_imgNewsLocal NewsCar thief vows to ‘turn his life around’By admin – July 23, 2012 966 WhatsApp Print Advertisement Linkedin Facebookcenter_img A CAR thief has vowed to turn things around in his life now that his partner is pregnant with their first baby. 20-year-old Thomas Whelan of 102 Hyde Road, with 83 previous convictions, the majority of which related to road traffic violations, was before Limerick District Court last week facing two charges.

Few turn out for parent meeting on IR campuses

first_imgLocal News By admin – February 26, 2018 Few turn out for parent meeting on IR campuses Facebook Twitter There will be a meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Blackshear Elementary School library, 501 S. Dixie Blvd. Pinterest WhatsApp In the first of several parent meetings, Ector County Independent School District President Carol Gregg and Superintendent Tom Crowe talked to two parents about accountability standards and the schools that are on improvement required status under state accountability standards.The public meeting was held at Dowling Elementary School. Along with the two parents, Crowe and Gregg, three other board members and a handful of top administrators were on hand. Gregg said the parent meetings are suggested by the Texas Education Agency.Gregg noted that Dowling met standard under state ratings, but students from there will move on to either Bonham or Ector Middle School. Both are on IR status based on last year’s State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, scores.ECISD has eight schools on improvement required. Three — Ector Middle School and Noel and Zavala elementary schools — are in their fifth year of improvement required. If they do not come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district. Bonham is in its second year of improvement required.Crowe said Bonham has a turnaround plan that involves using the AVID program school wide starting in the fall. AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college preparation program where students learn organizational and note taking skills, among other things.Crowe said schools that use AVID throughout their campuses have made progress and Bonham has made strides on its test scores.He added that he has seen changes on the campus that involve an improvement in parental involvement and the instructional model on campus. Crowe said he also has seen a positive change in the school culture at Bonham.Principal James Ramage said the two biggest things he is working on this year are improving classroom instruction and classroom management. The majority of Bonham students are in the low socioeconomic range and they are picking up students from Ector Middle School.Ramage said a parent meeting is scheduled at his campus, 2201 E. 21st St., on March 5. The school may be reached at (432) 456-0429.Ramage, whose school requires uniforms, said they are working with teachers on teambuilding, morale and school spirit.On the subject of Ector, Crowe said the board decided to put out applications for colleges and universities to partner with the district to take over management of the campus. Crowe said the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and Texas Tech University are working on applications to work with ECISD and create an in-district charter school.Gregg said all students who live in the Ector district would be able to attend.If a partnership went through, it would provide $1,000 more per student for UTPB or Texas Tech to work with ECISD. They would put in their curriculum and instruction and hire their people.Crowe said the district would work with them cooperatively, but they would take over the campuses.If a partnership is approved, Crowe said the school would come off the IR list for two years. If not, Crowe said the district would take it back over. They can continue the partnership for up to 10 years.Gregg said the district has done many things at Ector to improve it, including bringing in additional staff to work with students to bring up test scores.Debbie Mossbarger, the parent of a Dowling fifth-grader, said knowing that the district has a plan will help her prepare her son for middle school over the summer. “I think it’s important for parents to be involved. We have two older girls and we adopted one, so parent involvement has always been something I think is very important. We were very involved in our daughters’ education process. They’re both graduates of college now and have good jobs, so I think it’s important that they’re encouraging that,” Mossbarger said. “I think it’s important that parents know that the district says, ‘Yeah, there’s a problem here and here’s what we’re going to do about it.’ I think that’s important. I think it’s important that the upper management stays in touch with the little guys,” she added.Crowe said applications are due Wednesday, a contract has to be sent to the state by April 30 and April 24 is the target date for the board to vote on it. He added that he plans to present it to the board in the first part of April.If You GoParent meetingscenter_img Facebook WhatsApp Previous articleMan charged after girl, 11, discloses sexual assault to teacherNext articleHIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Lubbock Estacado races past Monahans for regional berth admin Twitter The Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees will have special parent meetings at some of the elementary schools that feed into middle schools that are on improvement required status under state accountability standards.
