Risks such as political uncertainty across many of the world’s regions and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic may dissuade them from investing money in the stock market.However, low valuations may present buying opportunities for long-term investors. Therefore, focusing on equities rather than popular assets such as Bitcoin may have a more positive impact on an investor’s financial position over the long run.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…Buying bargain sharesInvesting money in bargain shares may never feel like the right move for any investor to make. After all, when a company’s share price trades below its intrinsic value there’s often an elevated level of risk that reduces demand among investors.Heightened risks can mean that the short-term prospects for cheap stocks are relatively unfavourable. This can translate into paper losses for investors over the short run.However, a strategy of buying undervalued stocks has previously proved to be a sound means of obtaining high returns over the long run. It allows any investor to take advantage of market mispricings. This is where high-quality companies sell at low prices on a temporary basis due to weak investor sentiment.Over time, the prospects of today’s bargain shares are likely to improve. This can be rewarded with higher share prices as investor sentiment strengthens.Investing money in high-quality stocks at low pricesToday could be the right time to start buying bargain shares. A number of companies with solid balance sheets, likely to survive a weak economic outlook, currently trade at low prices. Similarly, businesses with strategies that will allow them to adapt to changing consumer trends also seem to be undervalued by investors.This may be because they face a period of uncertain operating conditions. Or it may be down to weak investor sentiment towards the wider stock market.Either way, the long-term prospects for the world economy may be brighter than many investors are currently anticipating. Policymakers have said they’re willing to undertake further monetary stimulus in many of the world’s major economies.Alongside fiscal stimulus packages, this may mean that a relatively fast-paced economic recovery takes place that improves the operating outlooks for many businesses.Avoiding popular assets such as BitcoinTherefore, now could be the right time to avoid popular assets such as Bitcoin in favour of bargain shares. The virtual currency’s recent price rise may mean it lacks scope for capital growth relative to undervalued shares.Furthermore, its regulatory risks and lack of infrastructure may hold back its progress and make it less appealing in the eyes of some investors. This may be detrimental to its return outlook. And that could mean a portfolio of undervalued shares outperforms it in the coming years.

Italy 15-46 England No need for innovation as England outgun the hosts

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Italy – Tries: Benvenuti, Bellini. Cons: Allan. Pens: Allan.England – Tries: Watson 2, Farrell, Simmonds 2, Ford, Nowell. Cons: Farrell 4. Pens: Farrell. Italy 15-46 England No need for innovation as England outgun their hostsForget your foxes and your outside-of-the-boxers: England just had better beasts than Italy in their first Six Nations bout. When it came to the scrum, the English were better. When it came to finding that extra yard of pace, England had Anthony Watson and Sam Simmonds, who both nabbed a brace of tries. When it came to bullying your way to an opportunity, England had the George Ford-Owen Farrell axis and a big ol’ dollop of Ben Te’o. In short: their good ones were better than Italy’s good ones, and even if they weren’t at the start of a match-up, they had enough burly mates backing them up to ensure they were by the end.Italy had their moments, of course. However, Eddie Jones was left comparing his No 8, Simmonds, to the man who has been terrorising the Top 14 for two seasons, Victor Vito. After racking up 23 tackles, missing none in the process, the Exeter Chief showed a sparkling set of heels to score two rapid tries, his second one lobbing more points on the score sheet to make things look very comfortable. On the other side of the happy camper chart, Italy head coach Conor O’Shea was left considering the possibility of being without the great Sergio Parisse next week, away to Ireland.Sending it on: Sergio Parisse passes off the top of a lineoutThere was a period in the second half, when Mattia Bellini dotted down and the score was dragged up to 15-27 (Tommaso Allan missed the conversion) that Italian hope was audible. However, England are nothing if not blessed with resources. In the first half, their first-choice nine, Ben Youngs went off with a nasty-looking left knee injury, and the fizzing Danny Care came on. So when Italy were on the hustle in the second half, Jones simply nodded to the bench and had George Kruis, Jonathan Joseph and Jack Nowell injected into proceedings.There were seven tries from England, a new-ish looking midfield that performed well and a No 8 who is more “good feet for a big man” than Billy Vunipola’s “he’s just rocked that player like a southbound train.” Next week they face the cavalier, Scarlets-riddled, happy Welsh at Twickenham. The Six Nations is box office when these ties come up.It all began so positively when Watson cantered in off the slick hands from the back-line, that axis of  Ford and Farrell supplying the Bath speedster. He got in unchallenged that time, but three minutes later he was arching around Tommaso Boni, using a hand-off to push himself further ahead, ghost past another and bump in to score in the exact same corner for his second score.Just before the second try, England were cursing their luck with scrum-half  Youngs stretchered off, head in his hands and a sense of dread. Already this Six Nations, nines going down with knee complaints is a talking points. Care, his replacement, also knows what it is like to go off early under Eddie Jones. However, many had wanted the Harlequins scrum-half to dictate England’s tempo anyway.Bullies: England had no problem mixing it up physicallyThree Tommaso’s combined to add  a few bars of of their own tempo for Italy, though. Boni, perhaps keen to prove his physical worth after being pushed aside like an empty plate by Watson, supplied and supported a Bellini run. With clean ball in English territory, fly-half Allan was in the centre of things as Jonny May crept inwards, away from his wing. A looped pass over his head to Tommaso Benvenuti sent the Italy winger towards the line to score. England had the power, pace and set-piece to see off Italy in their opening Six Nations clash, in Rome. There were also standout performances from England’s midfield, Anthony Watson and Sam Simmonds. center_img Respite was brief. While Italy can bide their time and eventually eke out an opening, England can be relentless when the mood takes them. And they’ll greedily eat up your opportunities. With 32 minutes gone and the score art 17-7 to England’s favour, the hosts get a penalty just beyond the opposite 10m line. With Allan not trusted to go for the poles, Italy opted for the corner. And the English bullied the attempted drive into touch.LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSRight back down the English end, there was more Italian pressure, but England twice gave away penalties within spitting distance of their line. This is intended as a favourable comparison: England look to be becoming as efficiently cynical near their own line as the All Blacks have been for some time. Stop them crossing, whatever it takes. Eventually, just shy of the half-time whistle, the Azzurri had to satisfy themself with just three points. It is an English stinginess that slowly widens the scores between sides, especially with England continuing to feed the bears.Just in: Bellini managed to squeeze in to scoreBoni – an hula hoop of movement all game – thought he had finagled his way through the English defence, but Allan slipped him a forward pass. At the other end, England punted a penalty to touch and from the drive Simmonds was able to slip off the back with Italian forwards gawping, frozen, as he darted through to score. It was the try bonus wrapped up.England were at the bloody-minded stuff again on their own line. They pulled down a maul and the from another penalty, with England piling into the Italian drive, it eventually slowed to a halt. But with Maro Itoje lying awkwardly in the way on their other side. not that it perturbed the hosts, who zipped it wide left to Bellini who absorbed a Mike Brown hit as he slid on his knee into the corner and just got the ball down in time. Allan could not make the conversion from that far left and England went through the gears again.Smart axis: Owen Farrell paired well with his midfield colleaguesIf the resistance was never broken it was at least badly bruised, with England claiming another three tries. Farrell and Ford combined again for the latter to scuttle in for a score, England’s fifth. Boni threatened to break free after Farrell telegraphed an interception, but the centre was shackled and it was back to the business of tries. Simmonds got his brace and just to add to Devon’s pleasure, fellow Exeter Chief Jack Nowell got in on the act at the right corner. Farrell missed the conversion from touch – the third he sent astray from out wide. Burst of speed: Sam Simmonds scores one of his two tries last_img read more

RSF asks FCC not to ditch net neutrality

first_img Organisation RSF_en News As the U.S. Federal Communications Commission prepares to end protection for net neutrality, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) points out that equal access to the Internet is essential for defending free, independent, and pluralist content. A U.S. decision to scrap net neutrality would have repercussions throughout the world. Whether learning about a protest from a YouTube video, receiving a newsletter from an independent media outlet or watching content posted online by reporters – freely reported and pluralist news and information would be hit hard by the new regulations ending net neutrality on which the FCC intends to vote on December 14 after a widely-criticized consultation process. Net neutrality is what allows each of us to have the same Internet access, without tariff or speed variations depending on which sites we visit, which content we read or what we download. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have to give all their clients equal access. This is what allows the unrestricted dissemination of pluralist content. “By appointing one of his loyal supporters, Ajit Pai, as FCC chairman, Donald Trump had already sent a signal that the economic interests of ISPs were more important than defending the freedom to inform,” said Margaux Ewen, the head of RSF’s North America bureau. “The new regulations constitute an obstacle to media freedom and independence at a time when two thirds of U.S. citizens get their news from the Internet and social networks, and Donald Trump keeps on attacking the media.” Worrying influenceUndermining the principle of net neutrality gives ISPs the role of regulators and censors, increasing their already considerable power over the way that content is delivered. As well as having an enormous impact in the United States, this decision will also have colossal repercussions internationally.”The United State has an enormously influential role and we fear copy-and-paste jobs,” said Elodie Vialle, the head of RSF’s Journalism and Technology Desk. “Denying equal access to independent media outlets or overcharging for messaging apps used to bypass censorship in many countries will obstruct the freedom to inform. We therefore issue a final appeal to the FCC: don’t approve the new regulations.” Denying equal access to the Internet? The idea already has imitators. In Senegal, for example, the government is considering a bill that would threaten net neutrality. In Europe, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) is, for the time being, resisting ISP lobbyists. But is this sustainable after such a drastic move by the FCC? In a joint letter, 21 Internet creators and leading figures have urged the U.S. Congress to block the FCC vote because it poses an “imminent threat” to what they created and because the proposed new rules are based on “an inaccurate understanding of Internet technology.” RSF adds its voice to the appeals by civil society leaders, Internet pioneers, and well-known figures such as HBO talk-show host John Oliver to protect net neutrality.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE Social Democrats have selected Jenny Blake as their candidate for Limerick City in the upcoming General Election.Originally from Dublin, Blake came to Limerick in 2002 to study at UL and subsequently decided to make Limerick City her home.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Having worked in several community based roles in the city, as well as numerous social initiatives in a voluntary capacity, Jenny believes her experience gives her a perspective on the problems facing the city that other candidates do not have.“Limerick has been my home for 18 years and will be for the rest of my life. I love this city but Limerick has, undeniably, been neglected and left behind.“Working as a front line service provider for many years has given me a genuine understanding of the issues that affect people’s lives,” she claimed.“UHL is in chaos, childcare is crippling people financially and regular people can’t afford to buy homes. What’s on offer from the main parties is more of the same; the same soundbites, the same inaction. Limerick deserves much better.”Currently working as a Student Support Officer in UL, Blake is a well known figure in Limerick, having played a central role in many campaigns over the years.She acted as canvas coordinator for the Marriage Equality referendum in 2015 and founded and chaired the Mid West Regional Dual Diagnosis Network while working with Novas in McGarry House.She also teaches yoga in the city centre, having qualified as a teacher in 2018. She wed her long term partner, musician and theatre producer Ann, who hails from South Circular Road, in 2018.Blake says the main focus of her campaign will be healthcare, housing and the overall cost of living.“UHL encapsulates everything that is wrong with the health service currently,” she stated.“The most overcrowded hospital in the country, we have been promised new wards, more beds, time and again and nothing has been delivered. Mental health services are totally inadequate. Thousands of people in desperate situations are waiting months to see a professional. This is literally life and death we are talking about.“If people want things to change, they need to vote for new people and new ideas.” Printcenter_img Linkedin Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Email TAGSelection 2020Jenny BlakeKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostSocial Democrats Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Twitter NewsJenny is seeking a city seat for Social DemocratsBy Alan Jacques – February 6, 2020 408 last_img read more

UK says new study vindicates delaying 2nd virus vaccine shot

first_img TAGS  Pinterest Facebook Twitter WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Pinterest LONDON (AP) — Britain’s health chief said Wednesday that a new study suggesting that a single dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine provides a high level of protection for 12 weeks supports the government’s strategy of delaying the second shot so it can protect more people quickly with a first dose. Britain’s decision has been criticized as risky by other European countries, but Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the study “backs the strategy that we’ve taken and it shows the world that the Oxford vaccine works effectively.” Hancock’s comments came after Oxford University released a study showing the vaccine cut transmission of the virus by two-thirds and prevented severe disease. Mene Pangalos, executive vice president of biopharmaceuticals research and development at AstraZeneca, said no patients experienced severe disease or hospitalization three weeks after receiving a first dose, and that efficacy appeared to increase up to 12 weeks after the initial shot. “Our data suggest you want to be as close to the 12 weeks as you can” for the second dose, he told a news conference. The study has not been peer-reviewed yet and does not address the efficacy of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the other one currently in use in the U.K. Pfizer recommends that its shots be given 21 days apart and has not endorsed the U.K. government’s decision to lengthen the time between doses. But the Oxford research was greeted with excitement by U.K. officials under pressure to justify their decision to delay the second dose. “That reduction in transmission, as well as the fact there is no hospitalizations, the combination of that is very good news. And it categorically supports the strategy we’ve been taking on having a 12-week gap between the doses,” Hancock told Sky News. Some countries, including France, have authorized the AstraZeneca vaccine only for use in people under 65, saying there is not enough evidence to say whether it works in older adults. Belgium has authorized it only for people 55 and under. Yet one of the lead researchers on the Oxford vaccine project, Dr. Andrew Pollard, said “we expect it to be highly effective in older adults” and said more data should be available in the next few weeks. Britain has Europe’s deadliest coronavirus outbreak, with more than 108,000 deaths, and is in its third national lockdown as authorities try to contain a new, more transmissible virus variant first identified in southeast England. Other variants are also a concern. Public health officials in England are going door to door, trying to test all adults in eight targeted communities in an attempt to stop a new strain first identified in South Africa from spreading further. So far 105 cases of the variant have been identified in the U.K., 11 of them in people with no links to overseas travel. Scientists say there’s no evidence the South African variant is more serious than the original virus but it may be more contagious. There are also concerns that current vaccines may be less effective against that variant because it contains a mutation of the virus’ characteristic spike protein that existing vaccines target. That is a worry as the U.K. races to vaccinate its own population against the virus. Almost 10 million people have received the first of their two shots, including the bulk of people over 80 and those in nursing homes. Pollard said Oxford scientists believe the AstraZeneca vaccine will continue to offer protection against new variants of COVID-19, although they are still waiting for data on that.
