Investing £10k (or indeed, any other amount) in FTSE 100 shares today could be a sound long-term move. Certainly, the index’s recent market crash may return if news regarding coronavirus and its impact on the economy is negative. However, over the coming years many undervalued FTSE 100 stocks could produce strong recoveries.Therefore, buying a selection of large-cap shares could be a more profitable idea than purchasing other mainstream assets. The index appears to offer a favourable risk/reward opportunity. And this could enhance your long-term financial prospects.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…Value opportunitiesAs well as being cheap, many FTSE 100 stocks appear to offer good value for money. In other words, they trade at prices that do not fully reflect the quality of their balance sheets. Nor do their prices reflect their potential to deliver improving financial performances in the coming years.As such, now could be the right time to buy them. In some cases, weak investor sentiment towards global equities caused by increased risk-aversion among investors may mean that high-quality businesses offer wide margins of safety.True, some sectors such as retail and travel & leisure may be severely impacted by coronavirus. But some industries continue to produce strong financial performances. Their incumbents could offer good value for money at a time when investors are seeking to reduce their exposure to stocks due to the prospect of further market volatility.Furthermore, a number of companies within sectors that are being impacted by coronavirus could offer investment appeal. They have solid balance sheets and wide economic moats in many cases, which do not appear to be fully reflected in their current valuations.Relative appealAt the same time as the FTSE 100 appears to offer a number of undervalued stocks, the appeal of other mainstream assets is declining. Investors who wish to generate strong returns in the coming years may find that assets such as cash and bonds fail to meet their requirements. Low interest rates look set to remain in place for many months, and even years. This could lead to below-inflation returns for bondholders and savers.Likewise, buy-to-let investments may not even be possible at the present time! Social distancing rules mean that property viewings are on hold for now. And many mortgages have been removed by banks and building societies in recent weeks. With tax changes also reducing the net returns available to landlords, now could be the right time to pivot to stocks from buy-to-let properties.Recovery prospectsOf course, not all FTSE 100 stocks will produce strong recoveries following the recent market crash. Therefore, it is imperative to build a diverse portfolio of companies that, together, can take part in a very likely long-term recovery for the stock market. Investing your cash in a wide range of shares is cost-effective thanks to low online share-dealing costs. Doing so could produce a highly attractive risk/reward opportunity for your portfolio. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

There are the things everyone knows about St. Patrick’s day. Iconic images and actions that comes to mind when you think about it: the color green. Shamrocks. Irish. Leprechauns. Rainbows. There is a parade. Something about St. Patrick kicking all the snakes out of Ireland. Green beer. Drinking. Drinking too much.And then there are the reasons behind these things, that we don’t think about much if at all, because, well, because celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is so much fun.So in the spirit of celebration, here are five little known facts about the holiday that might make your day a little more meaningful.OneWhat is the story with Shamrocks?This one is simple. St. Patrick, spreading the Catholic faith to villages and farms far and wide, used a handy tool. The always-around clover, and its three leaves, helped him explain the idea of the Holy Trinity.TwoMake sure to wear blue on St. Patrick’s Day.Saint Patrick’s color was blue, not green, say historians. St. Patrick’s blue was on ancient Irish flags.But green as a St. Patrick’s Day color dates to the 1798 Irish Rebellion- which also popularized the clover as a symbol of nationalism. Supporters would “wear the green” on their lapels, and soldier’s began wearing green uniforms. Soon use of the color spread as far and wide as the green hills of the island.ThreeWhy March 17?St. Patrick died, most sources say, sometime around 490, on March 17. The date is his designated feast day, in the Catholic strain of the Christian religion. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, theologian Luke Wadding started the tradition: “Each year Wadding kept the Feast of St. Patrick with great solemnity, and it is due to his influence … that the festival of Ireland’s Apostle was inserted on 17 March in the calendar of the Universal Church.”FourFor decades, Irish bars were closed on St. Patrick’s Day. Yup.It officially became a holiday in Ireland in 1903, but it was the 1962 before anyone could celebrate over a pint in a pub. The very Catholic country’s leaders worried about that excessive celebration during lent might be a little uncouth, so they passed a law that forced pubs closed on March 17. The rather unpopular law was repealed in 1961.Why do they call it the luck of the Irish?Origins of the phrase are muddy, ultimately, but it does seem pretty clear that it was not exactly meant as a compliment. Maybe more like a little dark humor by the long-suffering history of Irish people, from the potato famine to religious persecution to extreme prejudice from Americans towards immigrants from the Emerald Isle.From an Irish scholar posting on Answers.com:“It is an ironic phrase. The Irish have been, and are a spectacularly unlucky race. The “luck of the Irish” is BAD luck, as any reading of Irish history will document. When I did my Master’s thesis on Irish references in the American language, I found the original and proper use of this irony goes clear back to the Old Country and migrated to America early on. Nowadays many speakers and writers — even the supposedly erudite ones — misuse the phrase to imply GOOD luck. Let these misinformed (and misinforming) folks eat only potatoes for a few decades — if any potatoes can grow in their fields.”Some sources trace the origin back to the American gold rush. Supposedly, a large number of Irishmen struck gold out West, thus “luck of the Irish.” This has the feel of myth made to explain the phrase, though, more than of historical fact.What about Fighting Irish?Fighting Irish traces back to the Civil War. It was what the members of a Union infantry brigade made up of all Irish immigrants called themselves. The brigade official title “The Irish Brigade” and consisted of 69th NY, 63rd NY, 88th NY, 116th Pennsylvania, and 28th Mass. Infantry Regiments, but was dubbed “The Fighting Irish” by regiment members shortly after it’s formation TAGSIrishMarch 17thSt. Patrick’s Day Previous articleSeats #3 and #4 heading for runoffsNext articleThe Best Rx for Back Pain Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment!

El gobierno turco, así como elementos abiertamente fascistas, han abierto un amplio ataque contra organizaciones democráticas en todo el oeste de Turquía. Mientras tanto, el ejército turco ha continuado su agresión contra el Partido de los Trabajadores del Kurdistán (PKK), tanto contra guerrilleros como contra civiles en el sureste del país donde los habitantes son mayormente kurdas/os.Estados Unidos y otros gobiernos de la OTAN apoyan la ofensiva del régimen turco. El régimen de Ankara concedió a la Fuerza Aérea de EUA el derecho a utilizar las bases militares dentro de Turquía para llevar a cabo ataques aéreos contra Siria e Irak. El gobierno de Turquía también ha librado guerra y subversión contra el gobierno sirio.El presidente turco, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, planeó en las elecciones nacionales de junio pasado, que su gobernante Partido de la Justicia (AKP), aumentara su mayoría al 60 por ciento de los escaños en el Parlamento. Si hubiera logrado esto, Erdogan habría sido capaz de cambiar la Constitución turca y consolidar su presidencia.En cambio, su AKP perdió 71 escaños, ganando sólo una minoría – 258 – de los 550 escaños. Un nuevo partido de coalición izquierdista, el Partido Demócrata Popular (HDP), con mucho apoyo de la población kurda, sorprendentemente ganó 79 escaños. El AKP, que sigue siendo el partido más grande en el parlamento, se vio obligado a llamar a una nueva elección nacional para noviembre.Fortalecido por su acuerdo con el Pentágono, el régimen de Erdogan luego abrió una guerra aérea contra el PKK en Irak y contra las fuerzas kurdas en Siria, mientras intensificaba la represión en las regiones kurdas. Las fuerzas de liberación del PKK, que habían participado en conversaciones de paz con el régimen de Erdogan en los últimos dos años, contraatacaron. El ejército y las fuerzas policiales turcas mataron a combatientes kurdos y a muchos civiles, pero también sufrieron bajas cuando el PKK respondió.En la última escalada, el AKP y el fascista Partido del Movimiento Nacionalista, también conocidos como los Lobos Grises, atacaron e incendiaron las oficinas del izquierdista HDP y las casas de algunos de sus miembros en Turquía el 8 y 9 de septiembre.Durante las elecciones de junio, el HDP hizo campaña exigiendo el aumento del salario mínimo, mejorar el acceso a la educación universitaria y lograr la igualdad de género. Se comprometió a crear un ministerio de la mujer y hacer el Día Internacional de la Mujer un día nacional feriado. El HDP tiene un hombre y una mujer respectivamente, como copresidentes: Selahattin Demirtas y Figen Yukseldag.Atacadas 300 oficinas del HDPEn una conferencia de prensa en la ciudad oriental de Diyarbakir el 9 de septiembre, Demirtas denunció que mientras el ejército y la policía están llevando a cabo terrorismo de estado contra la población civil bajo un toque de queda en las ciudades con mayoría kurda en el este de Turquía, en el oeste del país, Erdogan está fomentando abiertamente el terror en las calles por matones fascistas. En solo dos días, ocurrieron más de 400 asaltos y ataques contra oficinas del partido, oficinas de prensa, tiendas y casas de kurdas/os y tiendas de campaña de trabajadores temporales kurdos en todo el país. Más de 300 ataques se llevaron a cabo contra las oficinas de HDP, algunas quemadas totalmente. (Junge Welt, 11 de septiembre)Demirtas pidió a los simpatizantes de su partido organizar escuadrones de autodefensa. Dijo que los ataques no eran reacciones espontáneas de la población en respuesta a los ataques de la guerrilla del PKK, como alega el gobierno, sino un ensayo para una guerra civil. El acusó al AKP y al servicio secreto turco de coordinar los ataques contra su partido.El 10 de septiembre, el diario alemán Junge Welt publicó una entrevista con Semra Dogan, co-presidenta del HDP en el distrito Kadiköy de Estambul, en la que habló sobre su partido y la nueva situación.El HDP “es un proyecto conjunto de las/os kurdos, la izquierda y las/os demócratas”, dijo ella. “Estamos luchando por la igualdad, la libertad y la paz. Desde que logramos el 13,2 por ciento de los votos en las elecciones parlamentarias del 7 de junio, el estado ha estado tratando de detenernos. Las operaciones policiales y militares son parte de un plan extensamente preparado para aplastar a las fuerzas democráticas y abrir el camino para el sistema presidencial buscado por Erdogan”.Y continuó diciendo: “las ciudades kurdas han proclamado su autonomía porque se sienten amenazadas. Sirve a una defensa legítima. El estado quería linchar a los residentes. Las fuerzas de la guerrilla han declarado en repetidas ocasiones que no van a ir a la guerra, y que limitarán su acción a su legítima defensa. Pero las fuerzas armadas bombardean la guerrilla y sus bases de apoyo, tratando de provocarles a una guerra activa.“Erdogan y su AKP necesitan soldados muertos [para despertar el fervor nacionalista contra los kurdos]. El presidente sabe que fue arrinconado por estas tácticas – y ahora está tratando de movilizar votos nacionalistas para continuar manteniéndose en el poder”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
On the 49th anniversary of Houston’s historic Chicano Moratorium Against the Vietnam War, Brown Berets from around the country gathered in Houston and marched the same route activists took on July 26, 1970, when over 1,000 Chicanos marched through east Houston to rally against the U.S. war in Vietnam. Led by Aztec dancers, the march drew approval as people came out of neighborhood houses to welcome the marchers.Brown Berets came from around the U.S. to march in anti-war commemoration in Houston July 26.Activists came from around the country to Houston for the Brown Beret Unity Gathering, which included a formal meeting as well as the march and rally. They were from Sonoma County, Fresno and Inland Empire, all in California; from Colorado and Arizona; from Oklahoma City; Kansas City; Chicago; and from around Texas — Dallas, Houston, San Marcos, San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley. The Unity Gathering discussed plans for the 50th anniversary of the Chicano Moratorium scheduled for next year. One month after the Houston march in 1970, another even bigger Chicano Moratorium was organized in East Los Angeles, where the crowd grew to well over 30,000 people.The rally at Hidalgo Park began after the 100-plus people present ate lunch from a food truck serving well-seasoned tacos, beans and rice, hamburgers and hot dogs, shish kabobs, grilled jalapeños stuffed with cheese and barbeque sandwiches.Each city attending had a Brown Beret speaker. Other speakers included Jesus Medel, the director of Museo Guadalupe Aztlan in Houston; Janie Torres, the sister of Joe Campos Torres, who was murdered by Houston cops in 1977; Bunchy Crear, chair of the Houston chapter of the Black Panther Party Alumni Association; and a Houston representative of Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere (FIRE). Torres spoke of her brother, a Vietnam veteran, who was beaten beyond recognition and thrown into a downtown bayou “as racist Houston cops laughed and said, ‘Let’s see if the w-tb-k can swim.’” Torres called for unity among all activists, saying this was the key to organizing to end oppression. A speaker from FIRE extended solidarity with the Berets and invited all to protest the next day at the Greyhound Bus Station to call for a boycott of Greyhound until the company agrees to no longer allow the Border Patrol on their buses.The rally ended with the Berets gathering for a group photo. Dallas Brown Beret Leroy Peña asked all to form a triangle with their hands in solidarity with the Kanaka Maoli people protecting their Mauna Kea mountain from investors and the University of Hawai’i Board of Regents who want to construct a sprawling $1.4 billion telescope complex on this sacred land in Hawai’i.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Lonyae Coulterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lonyae-coulter/ + posts printThe TCU NAACP chapter is hosting a block party Friday to help raise awareness for the university’s race and reconciliation initiative. The event, which was postponed due to the threat of bad weather last week, is part of the RRI’s effort to unify the campus around matters of race. “As we continue to reconcile with the past histories at TCU, we stand with our brothers and sisters to cultivate true change,” said Leslie Epke, the graduate student representative on the RRI committee. Photo Courtesy of Jéssica Webba Epke helped coordinate the special and celebratory event. Attendees can expect raffles, games and other events. There will be performers including Brian Dickson Jr. from the music group Revib3d, Jéssica Webba, and Jalen Chadwick. Evan Wilkins will be singing and rapping, Jalen Lampkin will be rapping and TCU student Kiaya Johnson will be the MC. There will also be raffles to win merchandise from local small businesses and an Ev Young exclusive jersey. Relay games and line dances will be featured at the event. “School hasn’t been easy for the students,” said Marcellis Perkins, the graduate research assistant working with RRI. “They haven’t been able to have that college experience this year due to Covid-19, so this event will allow them to have fun and be memorable.” Epke said the Block Party will provide space for celebration of how far RRI has come, but also serve as a reminder of how far they still have to go. The block party is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Campus Commons.
