Stock market crash: I’d buy the best UK shares in an ISA today to make a million

first_imgStock market crash: I’d buy the best UK shares in an ISA today to make a million 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Many investors were left spooked after the stock market crash caused share prices to plummet across the board. Since then, global stocks have risen sharply, but many fear another market pullback could be imminent. While asset prices look set to remain volatile in the short term, I think buying the best UK shares and holding them in an ISA could immensely boost your chances of making a million over the long term.How to spot the best UK shares on the market todayWhen it comes to finding the right companies to invest in, there are certain key indicators to seek out. For example, I’m eyeing up companies that are continuing to thrive despite the impact of the global pandemic and bleak economic conditions. Admittedly, there’s no guarantee that they’ll continue to succeed over the long term. Nonetheless, it certainly underscores the resilience of the underlying business.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…What’s more, I’m inclined to focus on companies that are situated within sectors that have growth potential. In other words, industries that look set to be profitable over the long term. That way, the effects of short-term volatility are mitigated, and investors can focus on the stocks that look set to deliver the strongest return on capital. In my view, many UK companies with explosive growth potential can be found operating in the technology, healthcare and e-commerce industries.The importance of a Stocks and Shares ISAWhen you want to buy a selection of the best UK shares available on the market, it’s important to hold your investments in an ISA. This is especially the case for those looking to achieve a tidy return by investing over the long term.The advantages of holding your investments in a Stocks and Shares ISA are second to none. You’ll benefit from no tax on your profits, interest earned on bonds or dividend income. Essentially, an ISA works as a tax wrapper, which enables you to hold on to more of your gains. That’s doubly important for those aiming to make a million in the stock market.Building a six-figure portfolioIn order to build serious amounts of capital through buying the best UK shares inside an ISA, you’ll need to unleash the wonders of compound returns. Key to achieving this is the amount of time you spend in the market. It’s simple: the longer you stay invested for, the more time your investments have to grow. This in turn fuels the compounding process.To illustrate, let’s say you invest £500 a month into a basket of diversified FTSE 100 shares. Assuming an annual return of 9% (the annualised historic return of the FTSE 250 index is even higher at around 12%), you’d have an investment pot worth £1,031,550 after 32 years!With that in mind, I’d make the most of the buying opportunities a stock market crash brings. After all, it could be your once-in-a-lifetime chance to buy quality UK shares at discounted prices. Stay in it for the long term, and you may even achieve that six-figure portfolio.

Will the Ilika share price recover?

first_img Over the past couple of months, the share price of Ilika (LSE: IKA) has tumbled. It is now more than 30% down from its April highs. Over the past year, though, it still shows a 230% increase.Here I look at why the Ilika share price is volatile before considering whether it can recover from its recent fall.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…Ilika and UK battery sharesIlika is not a well-known company, as it does not yet sell its products in large quantities. It has spent some years developing solid state battery technology. Specifically it is working on two types of batteries that it calls Stereax and Goliath.Solid state batteries are expected to benefit from an upsurge in demand as the electric vehicle market grows. But this is not an easy technology to master. Few companies so far have a compelling product platform for such batteries. Ilika is one that does.That is why the company has a market capitalisation in excess of a quarter of a billion pounds, despite having revenue last year of under £3m. The Ilika share price isn’t based on the company’s current business performance in my opinion. Rather, it represents the excitement of some investors about potential growth in the electric battery market overall and Ilika’s ability to tap into that.Why has the Ilika share price fallen?The company has had some good news over the past few months. For example, it announced a collaboration with a Fiat subsidiary to scale up the Goliath pre-pilot production line. It has also leased a manufacturing facility and has been making the tools it needs to produce Stereax at scale.So why has the Ilika share price fallen despite it moving closer to commercialisation?I think the answer lies in the difference between demand and supply improvements. Moving to scale up manufacturing operations could help the company’s ability to supply batteries. But it will still need to generate demand for those products. It has limited commercial experience in that regard.Additionally, a lot of the share price is riding on the company’s technology. While many analysts think it has real potential, so far the applications of its technology have been at limited scale. Meanwhile, the battery sector has been a focus for many companies, including car manufacturers. The whole sector could become a lot more crowded, threatening the relative value of Ilika’s technology.Will the Ilika share price recover?There is an interesting product development story here, but also signs of speculative trading. I think the Ilika share price has gone up and down partly because many investors want to buy into solid state battery stories but few listed companies have such technology.That could continue to be the case. I expect that the Ilika share price will continue to reflect a broad investment thesis about electric vehicle batteries more than a specific analysis of Ilika’s prospects. That suggests that the Ilika share price could recover fully. But equally, it could continue to fall – even if the company makes more positive moves on mass commercialisation.That is why I won’t invest even after the recent fall in the Ilika share price. I don’t think I have the necessary expertise to assess how sustainable the company’s technological edge is. Additionally, I think the share price reflects enthusiasm for batteries overall, not just Ilika. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares christopherruane has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Want Your Kids to Care? Stop Stressing Them Out…

first_img Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your comment! TAGSStress Previous articleParking Ordinance Advisory Committee to MeetNext articleTask Force on Violence concludes its work Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your name here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here …And Let Them Play This SummerParenting expert Michele Borba says overscheduled, overwhelmed kids are missing out on the free play and downtime that develop their capacity to care about others. Here are 5 tips to help us stop stressing the empathy out of our kids this summer.America’s kids are more self-absorbed than ever. If their constant gaze into the selfie camera isn’t proof enough, plenty of statistics and news stories point to a fall in empathy, a rise in narcissism, and an epidemic of bullying and cruelty. If you’re a decent parent, of course you want your kids to stop with the “me me me” and start thinking “we”—and you’ll address it as soon as you finish signing them up for three-days-a-week taekwondo, sleepaway chess camp, and a full slate of summer college courses.“Too many parents are stressing the empathy right out of our kids,” says Borba. “We do it from a place of good intentions—in a hypercompetitive world we are desperate to give our kids an edge—but all the pressure and all the structured activities are causing more harm than we know.”Summer once revolved around free play: bikes, baseball, swimming, or just hanging out with friends. But for many reasons—parental emphasis on achievement, safety fears, the dependence on digital devices as entertainment—those carefree days are long gone. Like childhood itself, summer has become play-deprived and hypercompetitive.We can’t turn back the clock, but we can infuse more fun, free play, and empathy-building activities into our kids’ summer. Here are 5 suggestions from Borba:1. Cut one activity to make room for play with friends. Eighty percent of kids say they wish they had more free time; 41 percent admit feeling stressed most of the time because they have too much to do. So sit down with your child and his calendar at the beginning of summer and ask: Is there one extra activity that can be cut to free up time to connect with peers and practice social skills? Make sure “be with friends” is added to the agenda. And when your child is with a pal, make it an “unplugged play date.”2. Choose a summer camp that emphasizes fun. Increasingly, parents view summer as a time to give kids an extra academic edge. That’s why so many opt to send kids to a serious math or computer camp instead of the kind where you swim in lakes, weave lanyards, and sing around campfires. This is often a mistake, says Borba. Kids need time to relax and be in situations that force them to interact with other kids—and if some of those other kids represent other races, cultures, genders, and belief systems, so much the better.3. Force kids to “unplug” as much as possible. Did you know that the average eight- to eighteen-year-old is plugged in to a digital media device about 7 hours and 38 minutes a day? And that doesn’t count time spent texting or talking on cell phones. Even preschoolers spend 4.6 hours per day using screen media, and almost 40 percent of two- to four-year-olds use a smartphone, MP3 player, or tablet. These numbers are shocking, and according to Borba, they’re a big part of the reason so many kids are lacking in empathy.4. Steer them toward cooperative (not competitive) games. Collaborating is about working for the team or family or group—and it means you can’t always be first, win, or have your way. This lesson is increasingly rare in a trophy-driven world that often pits one child against another. Cooperative Games and Sports: Joyful Activities for Everyone, by Terry Orlick, or Everyone Wins! Cooperative Games and Activities, by Josette and Sambhava Luvmour, are two books you might want to read and share with friends and summer camp or youth group leaders.5. Insist that kids read this summer. No matter how busy kids are playing, there will (and should) be some quiet time in the summer. Most parents would much rather their kids spend that time reading than playing video games. And the great news is that not only does reading boost kids’ academic performance, it also boosts empathy. In fact, science finds that people who read fiction are more capable of understanding others, empathizing, and seeing another person’s point of view than those who read nonfiction.Michele Borba is the author of Unselfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Heritage houses are a double edged sword for an architect, especially if it’s an own home. On the one hand there is the emotive almost romantic aspect of history and on the other you have the pragmatic aspects of Planning and regulations- then you mix this with the desire to fully realise the potential of a site and location.Save this picture!© Jack LovelCrisp House was certainly no exception to this. Despite having an Individually Significant rating the property was in a pretty dire condition having been stripped of nearly all of its heritage fabric and character, and seemingly held together with years of thickly applied paint.Save this picture!© Jack LovelEarly concepts for the re-development tended to focus purely on Planning and meeting local guidelines – looking to maximise the potential of the site rather than consideration to the existing cottage. Using the height of the apartment block to the north as a guide, various schemes using 3 levels were explored. [Collingwood was on the up and up] and maximising the site potential seemed to be the sensible [financial] way to go.Save this picture!© Jack LovelAt the same time we also started to delve into the past in preparation for Council submission, and it’s then that our attitude took a turn. As we learnt more about the cottage and the Collingwood Slope district we decided that there was great value in the history, that it was important to ensure it was preserved.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe house name derives from an association with Edward Crisp, an Irish brewer who established the Burton Brewery in nearby Cambridge Street. It was a pre-fab cottage imported from England during early settlement of the 1850’s. The Collingwood Slope was one of the first subdivisions outside of Melbourne and the industrialists all flocked here. They needed accommodation quickly and these timber dwellings appeared throughout the area, to be replaced later with more substantial brick dwellings. Crisp House is among the oldest remaining timber dwellings in Collingwood, and this is the reason for the high rating. Edward actually built the neighbouring brick home and moved his family into there in the late 60’s, Crisp House undergoing further expansion around then into 2 small cottages which accounts for the 2 front entrances we see today.Save this picture!After / ElevationsThe restoration works undertaken included a complete re build of the original cottage – nothing was of a redeemable quality. The beaded weatherboards were reproduced in Baltic pine using the original boards as the template, there were in fact 2 sizes as the conversion in the 1860’s used a smaller sized board. The original double hung cord and weight windows were reproduced, and the smaller 6 pane configuration reintroduced after being removed during previous renovation works. The timber veranda posts were returned along with the wooden decorative details, and during the demolition of the cottage we were able to collect a bag of hand forged nails, fascinated by their existence and a great reminder of its age.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe design has opened up a small confined cottage into a free-flowing airy residence. Once past the original portion of the dwelling, the use of extensive glazing and north facing skylights flood the interiors with light. Large sliding doors open up to the outside areas with seamless floor levels. Structural elements have been left exposed adding visual interest to the interiors which emphasise and celebrate a range of natural finishes – plywood /oak /steel /bluestone /cement. Concealed behind the angled roof form is a large roof terrace which brings the primary outdoor space up to a level where solar access is guaranteed and is easily accessible from the living spaces via a sculptural external steel and wooden stair.Save this picture!© Jack LovelIn a varying streetscape of heritage and industrial buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries, and in an area of continued development and change Crisp House has finally secured its place. Hemmed in by taller buildings either side of it, the original cottage was overwhelmed and neglected for decades – its identity compromised by inappropriate treatments. The new works now fill in this gap and provide a sensitive and recessive backdrop to the faithfully restored dwelling that originated some 160+ years ago in England.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessFalling Masonry Kills Tourist in Florence’s Deteriorating Basilica di Santa CroceArchitecture NewsMichael Maltzan Architecture and UNStudio Headline 2017 Zumtobel Group AwardsArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

On a raised lot overlooking a lake, the feeling of privacy and seclusion was the starting point of this 487m2 project. The wish list was specific: the resident sought references to send her back to her homeland in Napa Valley, California. Among items, a bedroom that invite to stay in bed late, cars kept in the background and an inner walkway surrounded by forest.The architectural translation of these elements was written in a house that stands in three distinct blocks, each representing a different zoning. On the front facade the first one stands, a cube completely covered in wood that shelters the suites of the children and “floats” over the open garage.

Clinton’s Africa tour advances U.S. militarism, attacks on China

first_imgStudents protested outside as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke in Cape Town, South Africa, Aug 8.Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton toured nine African countries over an 11-day period beginning Aug. 1. During the tour Washington’s top diplomat pushed U.S. militarism and verbally attacked the People’s Republic of China. Clinton’s visit comes just two weeks after a major Africa-China summit meeting in Beijing between 50 countries on the continent and Chinese government leaders.During the first stopover in the West African state of Senegal, which has been a close ally of the U.S., Clinton immediately launched into a tirade against China, implying that the White House is more concerned than China about the well-being and human rights of African people. This assertion comes as the Wall Street bankers and corporate chiefs are facing the worst economic crisis since the 1930s Great Depression. Consequently Africa and other developing regions of the world are looking for funding alternatives outside the Western capitalist states.The movement toward economic and political independence from the U.S. and other imperialist states derives from the clear observation that the capitalism system is in crisis. Even leading economists in the West predict no end in sight to the downturn. U.S. diplomatic officials not only must overlook the economic downturn in Europe and North America, but must also avoid the scrutiny of their involvement in centuries of slavery and colonialism in Africa.Therefore it seems absurd when Clinton said in Dakar, the Senegalese capital, that we “will stand up for democracy and universal human rights, even when it might be easier or more profitable to look the other way. Not every partner makes that choice, but we do and we will.” (, Aug. 5)This is the same U.S. government that overthrew the sovereign North African state of Libya last year and oversaw the assassination of Libya’s leader, Col. Moammar Gadhafi. As Clinton was touring Africa, U.S. drones were bombing areas in Somalia under the guise of fighting “terrorism.”China immediately responded to Clinton’s attacks: “Whether Clinton was ignorant of the facts on the ground or chose to disregard them, her implication that China has been extracting Africa’s wealth for itself it utterly wide of the truth. Her remarks betrayed an attempt to drive a wedge between China and Africa for the U.S.’s selfish gain.” (Xinhua, Aug. 2)Characterizing China’s relations with Africa, Xinhua noted, “China’s booming economic relations with Africa have stemmed both from their time-honored friendship and complementary needs of development. Its genuine respect of and support for African countries’ development paths are lauded and welcomed across the continent. The friendly and mutually beneficial interaction between China and Africa gives the lie to Clinton’s insinuation.” (Aug. 3)More militarism to ensure profitsThe more Washington can stifle growing partnerships and alliances between China and Africa the more domination U.S. imperialism will have over the economic and political direction of the continent. The U.S. Africa Command, known as AFRICOM, is designed to enhance the presence of the Pentagon and CIA in all regions of Africa.Clinton’s visits to Senegal, South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria and Benin were in line with U.S. imperialism’s efforts to dominate the next phase of resource exploitation. New discoveries of oil and natural gas in West, East and Central Africa are estimated to be worth trillions of dollars in investments and trade.In South Sudan, Clinton urged the government to reach a deal with the Republic of Sudan to get oil flowing again. South Sudan is a close ally of Washington. The partition of oil-rich Sudan into two countries has provided an opening for the U.S. to reenter that country’s oil industry, which had been dominated by China.Throughout Central and East Africa, the U.S. has dispatched Special Forces units with the pretext that they are tracking down members of the Lord’s Resistance Army, which was formed in northern Uganda over two decades ago. There are plans to train an additional 2,000 African Union troops to pursue Washington’s policies within the region.In Uganda and Kenya, Clinton stressed the need for African states to maintain a military presence in Somalia. There thousands of regional troops from Uganda, Burundi and Djibouti, which the U.S. finances and trains, are attempting to prevent the collapse of the Transitional Federal Government. Somalia and its breakaway regions are now producing oil, and the potential for deeper capital penetration is enormous.Although the U.S. has backed Somalia’s TFG regime, even engineering Kenyan and Ethiopian invasions of the country during 2011, the security situation remains precarious. Al-Shabaab resistance fighters are still hitting back at U.S.-supported regional troops and the puppet governmental forces based in Mogadishu, the capital.An Aug. 4 Associated Press report pointed out, “The U.S. has killed al-Shabaab militants in special forces raids, offered $33 million in bounties for the capture of its leaders and supported the interim government, which this week passed a draft constitution despite suicide bombers’ attempts to blow up the venue where they met to vote.”The AP report noted that the Brookings Institution drew the link between corporate interests and the Pentagon: “There is increasing commercial interest in East Africa from the U.S., which sees its national security interests tied to security energy supplies.”The report went on: “U.S. oil and gas companies are increasingly taking on acreage in East Africa. Houston-based Marathon Oil Corp. paid $35 million to Africa Oil Corp. for stakes in two Kenyan prospects last month, while Anadarko Petroleum Corp., also based in Houston, has made the decade’s biggest gas discovery off Mozambique and has rights to explore off Kenya’s coast.”In Malawi, Clinton praised new President Joyce Banda for her commitment to economic reforms that make Malawi attractive to investors. Banda recently declined to hold the 54-member African Union Summit in Malawi because an African leader the U.S. considers an enemy, President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan, was planning to attend.In South Africa, a business summit between corporate interests and U.S. capitalists took place in Sandton where governmental and business officials were seeking clarity on the continuing eligibility of Africa’s largest economy to participate in American Growth and Opportunity Act initiatives. AGOA proponents in the U.S. Congress are concerned about South Africa’s joining the BRICS states — Brazil, Russia, India and China — which have plans for economic relations outside Western dictates.Peter Draper, of the South African Institute of International Affairs, said of U.S.-South African business relations that “there have been rumblings over the years concerning whether South Africa should be part of AGOA. U.S. industrial and agricultural groups want certain products excluded, or South Africa totally out.” (BusinessDay [SA], Aug. 6)According to the same article, South African Ambassador to the U.S., Ebrahim Rasool, said that the “consequences for our companies and our country would be enormously unfavorable should the act and South Africa’s participation in it not be continued after 2015.” Rasool also said South Africa’s membership in BRICS was problematic and that “There is a feeling that South Africa, having joined BRICS, isin another league and does not qualify.”U.S. has limited options in AfricaIn light of the deepening economic crisis in the U.S. and the growing role of China in Africa, the Wall Street bosses and their government functionaries offer little in the way of new policy overtures for Africa outside militarism and disadvantageous business deals. Mass unemployment in countries such as South Africa illustrates the limitations of capitalist economic methods for even advanced postcolonial states.Military policy that places emphasis on the broader intervention of AFRICOM will only bring about more instability in Africa. The current situations in Libya, Mali, Sudan and Somalia are evidence of the futility of African states forming partnerships with the Pentagon, since inevitably the economic and humanitarian situations worsen.Africa must break with imperialism to place itself on a trajectory of genuine development and progress. Workers and farmers must be empowered to form governments based upon their own interests and not those of the imperialist states. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

BlackRock billionaire hit for rainforest destruction

first_imgPhiladelphia, Sept. 5.Demonstrators gathered outside the Circa Center in Philadelphia on Sept. 5 where BlackRock, the world’s largest investment firm, has a regional office. With more money invested in the fossil fuel and agribusiness industries than any other company in the world, BlackRock’s responsibility for the current climate crisis is huge.  After Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro was elected, BlackRock announced plans to expand its operations there.Speakers called on BlackRock billionaire CEO Larry Fink to use his clout to curb Amazon rainforest destruction, not to encourage further forest clearing. The action, across from Philadelphia’s the busy Amtrak station, received broad support from drivers passing by. The event was initiated by local activists with family in Brazil.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
