The stock market crash has left many investors feeling downbeat about the prospects for the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. They both trade below their 2020 starting prices, and face risks such as a continued rise in coronavirus cases that could further harm their progress.However, investing in shares after the stock market downturn could be a sound move. They have the potential to produce sound recoveries, which could make them a better means of obtaining a seven-figure portfolio than buy-to-let properties.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…Stock market crash opportunitiesThe stock market crash has caused many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares to trade on low valuations. In some cases, such price levels have not been present since the last bear market in 2008/09. Therefore, the is an opportunity for long-term investors to buy high-quality businesses while they offer wide margins of safety. Over time, this can lead to high returns as the world economy and the stock market experience periods of growth.Clearly, stock prices could be volatile over the short run. Risks such as coronavirus, as well as political uncertainties caused by events such as the US election and Brexit, may lead to further declines in stock prices. However, the current valuations on offer across the FTSE 350 indicate that now may prove to be a good time for investors to build a diverse portfolio of high-quality businesses.Buy-to-let’s limited opportunitiesAlthough buy-to-let has not yet experienced a market crash akin to that of the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250, over time the prospects for house price growth may become more limited. Factors such as rising unemployment and insecure job prospects for many people may cause houses to become increasingly unaffordable. Even though interest rates have fallen, high house prices relative to average incomes may weigh on the sector’s outlook for some time.Furthermore, buy-to-let properties may be riskier than buying a diverse range of shares. They are illiquid investments, while it is difficult to diversify due to the high costs of buying even one property. Therefore, from a risk/reward perspective the stock market could hold greater appeal.Making £1m after the stock market crashMaking £1m from shares after the stock market crash may not seem be an attractive idea according to many investors at the present time due to its uncertain near-term outlook. However, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 appear to be undervalued, and have long histories of successful recoveries.Buy-to-let property may fail to match the returns available on the stock market. Its price declines may be yet to come as macroeconomic weakness weighs on demand for what are relatively unaffordable properties in many areas. Therefore, investors who are looking to make a million may wish to focus their capital on undervalued FTSE 350 shares trading at prices that are rarely seen.

Located in a hutong near the historical centre in Beijing, the L-shaped house is sandwiched between the old hutong wall and a two floor building. The renovation aimed to transform the dated 43 m² residence into a convenient, functional modern living space for a family of six people .Save this picture!© Ruijing PhotoSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ruijing PhotoThe first floor is consisted of a number of wooden boxes that functioned as living room, dining room, bedroom, study room and bathroom, creating a continuous open space that offers opportunities for communication between family members, at the same time ensuring each individual have a independent living space. The size of each box is decided according to the height of people’s activities in different functional areas. The open space on the 2nd floor is the kid’s bedroom and playground. SoJ materials such as rugs and nets are used in order to make sure the kid’s safety and also to create a warm and intimate atmosphere .Save this picture!© Ruijing PhotoThe shared corridor on one side of the house is not only connected to all the interior areas but also connected to outdoor public spaces, like a extension of the Hutong. With a long skylight that goes through the entire house, sufficient natural light streams in, creating a sense of being in the outdoor space. The facade facing the backyard is made of wooden frame and transparent glass, which can be opened as a huge door. Thus the interior living space and the backyard are bridged together, diffusing the boundary between the indoor and outdoor space.Save this picture!© Ruijing PhotoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Ruijing PhotoThe design took the inspiration of public sharing spaces in traditional Beijing Hutong, conveys the vision that a home can be a open space as a part of the public urban spaces and what defines a home is the relationships of the people who live inside and the relationships between people and the environment.

Through the partnership, every litre of Brewgooder sold over this time will donate 100 litres of clean water. This means the sale of each individual beer will contribute 100 times its volume in clean water in projects around the world, culminating in a target of 1 billion pints by 2024. This partnership marks the next step in Brewgooder’s mission, expanding its focus from solely Malawi to a further 21 countries where reliable nationwide access to clean water continues to be a challenge, including: Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, India, and Kenya. From beer to clothing: 7 products raising funds for charity GiftsOnline4U gifts & WaterHarvestGiftsOnline4U partnered with WaterHarvest in June 2020, and has so far raised £1500 for the charity. GiftsOnline4U chose a selection of dedicated gifts, and the profits of each gift sold were donated to WaterHarvest. The money will be used to build rainwater harvesting structures that collect rainwater during the monsoon season. £1500 is enough for approximately 3 rainwater harvesting systems. GiftsOnline4U is dedicated to raising more money for WaterHarvest in the future, with a goal of £3000 by the end of the year, which would provide 6 rainwater harvesting systems for communities.Image: WaterHarvest AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1  1,492 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 With Brewgooder and Toast Ale supporting good causes with beer, Rupert & Buckley Clothing helping GOSH Charity through sales of a sustainable clothing range, here are 7 products benefitting charities.

The ambition is to raise over £100,000. The range will be marketed from the end of March for six weeks before going live from 1 May. All the clothes will be sold to order, with a 4-week delivery, to ensure this project is as sustainable as possible and with zero wastage.

Released on National Toast Day (25 February) during Real Bread Week, Baker’s Witbier is a 5% Belgian-style spiced wheat beer with subtle notes of orange and coriander.

Government wants all news sites dealing with Iran to be registered

first_imgNews November 30, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government wants all news sites dealing with Iran to be registered RSF_en Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about a government decision, taken at a cabinet meeting on 27 November, that all websites dealing with Iran will have to register with the culture ministry in the next two months. The new rule will probably be difficult to implement and seems designed above all to give the authorities grounds to close down independent news sites. Receive email alerts News After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists IranMiddle East – North Africa March 18, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about a government decision, taken at a cabinet meeting on 27 November, that all websites dealing with Iran will have to register with the culture ministry in the next two months. The new rule will probably be difficult to implement and seems designed above all to give the authorities grounds to close down independent news sites.“Other countries such as China and Bahrain have tried to force online publications to register but none have succeeded,” the press freedom organisation said. “It will be impossible to force the tens of thousands for websites dealing with Iran, most of which are hosted on servers abroad, to register with the authorities. But this rule could serve as pretext for arbitrarily closing or filtering news websites. It will give a legal basis for the online censorship that already exists in Iran.”Baztab.org, a conservative website that supports Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and often criticises President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s policies, has protested against the decision. “It is not up to the government to take a position on this type of subject,” the site said. “It is a matter for parliament. This rule is therefore illegal and unconstitutional.” Filtering rendered Baztab temporarily inaccessible inside Iran in October.The cabinet also listed the kind of websites that should be deemed “illegal” – those that insult Islam or other monotheistic religions, those that disseminate separatist ideologies and those that publish false information or threaten individual privacy.A blogger, Arash Sigarchi, has been imprisoned in Iran since January for “insulting the Supreme Guide” and “propaganda against the regime.” See: http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=12384 June 9, 2021 Find out more to go further Organisation News IranMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Iran Help by sharing this information News Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 February 25, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
