The 5% dividend-yielding FTSE 100 has slumped 20%! Is now the time to buy back in?

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Enter Your Email Address The FTSE 100 is now officially in a bear market. It’s fallen by over 20% from its recent high, which provides evidence of the scale of its recent decline.Its sharp fall means the index now has a dividend yield of over 5%. This suggests it could offer good value for money. It also suggests it may contain a number of stocks that have margins of safety included in their valuations.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…Of course, more pain could be ahead for investors in the short run. But, through buying undervalued, high-quality stocks today, you could improve your long-term financial prospects.Further challengesThe recent performance of the FTSE 100 highlights the scale of fear that’s currently present among investors. They’re concerned about the near-term impact of coronavirus on the world economy. It’s caused disruption to global supply chains and reduced demand among consumers in affected regions.As such, should news flow regarding the disease and its impact on the global economic outlook continue to be challenging, it would be unsurprising for the FTSE 100 to fall further. This could mean its period of decline is extended as investors prioritise the return of capital, rather than their return on capital.High yieldOf course, the FTSE 100 has been in similar situations before. It’s experienced 20%+ declines on a number of occasions since its inception 36 years ago. And investors who’ve been able to maintain a rational standpoint of where the index could be trading in the long run have generally benefitted from buying stocks while they offer wide margins of safety.Evidence of how cheap the FTSE 100 has become can be seen in its dividend yield. It currently stands at over 5%. There’s scope for a reduction in dividends across many large-cap shares should they experience challenging trading conditions due to the impact of coronavirus.That said, many FTSE 100 shares have substantial headroom when making their dividend payments. That means they may be able to absorb lower levels of profitability for a limited period without resorting to reducing shareholder payouts.This could mean investors can obtain a high yield that grows over the coming years. Moreover, the FTSE 100’s low valuation suggests there’s significant recovery potential ahead.An uncertain future?Clearly, the near-term prospects for the FTSE 100 are uncertain. But the long-term outlook for the index may still be very positive. The FTSE 100 has experienced a variety of risks and challenges during its existence. They’ve ranged from the 1987 crash to the global financial crisis, and from the tech bubble to previous outbreaks of diseases. Yet, it’s always recovered to post new highs.There’s no guarantee of the same outcome following the coronavirus outbreak. But the track record of the stock market suggests buying now could prove to be a sound move for long-term investors.

I am further south and fall under the South Florida Water Management District but I’m sure the data is applicable to us down here too. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here From the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictAn online resource is saving homeowners looking for landscaping ideas time, money and water. The St. Johns River Water Management District’s waterwise plant database can help landscapers and do-it-yourselfers research the right plants for their yards’ specific growing conditions.“Among the district’s greatest priorities is promoting water conservation,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. “Because one of the biggest uses of water is lawn and landscape irrigation at our homes and businesses, using water wisely in our landscapes is an important personal responsibility. Florida-friendly landscaping is easy — plus, saving water saves homeowners money!”To date, rainfall during 2017 has been below average with future predictions for similar rainfall trends. If a landscape’s sunlight and soil conditions are assessed correctly, well-chosen plants will need little to no supplemental irrigation once established.The district’s waterwise landscaping webpages provide information on how to design a water-conserving landscape and how to group plants according to their needs, such as planting region, sunlight and soil conditions.The dynamic web-based tool is designed to help determine which plants are most appropriate for a landscape given the natural growing conditions found there.The database, which is found at www.sjrwmd.com/waterwiselandscapes, is searchable by scientific name, common name, size, color of flowers, hardiness zone, soil moisture needs, light and shade requirements, salt tolerance, and more. It also offers information on hundreds of plant species and allows users to compare information about different plants to determine if they are suitable to plant together and to help the user better plan planting areas. The database works on smartphones and other mobile devices, so can conveniently be taken along when shopping at a garden center.April is Water Conservation Month, a designation intended to heighten public awareness about the variety of ways to reduce our water use.

Las mujeres luchan por el derecho al aborto en Argentina

first_imgLas mujeres en Argentina pueden haber perdido un voto por el derecho al aborto el 9 de agosto, pero no se han desanimado. No están intimidadas o asustadas. Tienen determinación. Son optimistas. Con renovada energía, dicen que seguirán organizando hasta que ganen este derecho fundamental.La lucha actual es por la legalización de abortos electivos hasta la semana 14 del embarazo; El 62 por ciento de la población apoya la reforma. La cámara baja del Congreso argentino había aprobado esa ley el 14 de junio, en respuesta al movimiento de masas. Sin embargo, el Senado, el cual es más conservador, por muy poco derrotó la legalización el 9 de agosto con una votación de 38-31; dos senadores se abstuvieron. La mayoría de los votos con “no” fueron emitidos por hombres mayores de 50 años.La votación dejó en vigencia una ley arcaica promulgada en 1921, que penaliza a las mujeres que abortan y los médicos que las realizan hasta con cuatro años de prisión. Los abortos legales solo se permiten cuando el embarazo es el resultado de una violación o si la vida de una mujer está en peligro, pero es casi imposible de obtener, especialmente por parte de mujeres pobres, rurales e indígenas.Cientos de miles de mujeres, especialmente jóvenes, han estado en las calles exigiendo el aborto legal durante muchos meses. Existe el optimismo de que las mujeres finalmente saldrán victoriosas porque el movimiento de mujeres se ha multiplicado en tamaño y fuerza, ganando activistas en toda la Argentina.Durante 16 horas, a lo largo del debate y la votación en el Senado, decenas de miles de mujeres se reunieron en un frío glacial en las afueras del Palacio de Congreso de Buenos Aires.Protestando por el resultado del voto, las mujeres se manifestaron allí y en todo el país. A pesar de su decepción, las mujeres saben que estaban cerca de ganar, que tienen un impulso de su parte y que el cambio está por venir.Incluso la ex presidenta Cristina Fernández, ahora senadora, que se opuso al aborto, fue persuadida. Ella dijo: “Los que me hicieron cambiar de opinión fueron las miles y miles de jóvenes que salieron a la calle”. (New York Times, 9 de agosto) El presidente antiaborto Mauricio Macri dijo que firmaría un proyecto de reforma. Su ministro de salud, Adolfo Rubinstein, apoya la reforma, citando los desastrosos resultados de los abortos “clandestinos” (ilegales).La periodista Soledad Vallejos dijo entusiasmada al diario The Guardian el 9 de agosto: “Las cosas nunca volverán a ser iguales porque la sociedad ha cambiado en estos cinco meses debatiendo esta ley”. Vallejos pertenece al colectivo Ni Una Menos, una fuerza líder en esta lucha. Su nombre se ha convertido en un lema. Originalmente, el nombre significaba no la vida de otra mujer perdida por la violencia de género; ahora también exige no otra muerte causada por un aborto inseguro.Iglesia Católica: pilar de la misoginiaLa Iglesia católica patriarcal intervino enérgicamente para bloquear la reforma de la ley de aborto. El Papa Francisco, cuyo país de origen es Argentino, y los obispos dieron instrucciones a los legisladores de derecha para presionar a los senadores a votar en contra del proyecto de ley. Según se informa, las organizaciones católicas insultaron y amenazaron de muerte a los senadores.Muchos de los “no” votantes citaron creencias religiosas. Algunos dieron razones no científicas o intolerantes para oponerse al aborto. La escritora y activista pro-elección argentina Claudia Piñeiro escribió en The Guardian que “rechazar el proyecto de ley … [los senadores proclamaron] que estaban salvando embriones … e incluso [escandalosamente] sugiriendo que la violación intrafamiliar no implica violencia”. (10 de agosto)Nora Cortinas, fundadora de Madres de Plaza de Mayo, dijo que renunciaría a la Iglesia Católica por el voto del Senado y criticó a los funcionarios de la Iglesia por intervenir en las vidas de otras personas y ser hipócritas. Esta organización de mujeres protesta por los asesinatos de 30.000 izquierdistas y activistas asesinados durante la brutal dictadura militar de 1976-83 en Argentina.Las madres y abuelas también buscan ubicar a los niños adultos que fueron robados como bebés de las mujeres presas políticas y reunirlos con sus familias legítimas. Cortinas enfatizó la complicidad de la Iglesia en estas atrocidades, diciendo que los sacerdotes bendijeron a los torturadores, mientras que las monjas dieron los bebés secuestrados a militares y otras familias derechistas.Cortinas explicó su posición sobre la lucha contra el aborto: “En una ley de salud como esta, la religión no tiene nada que ver con eso … y luego esta Iglesia dice que debemos salvar ambas vidas. … [Pero] los bebés, nacidos todos los días en nuestro país, son olvidados por la Iglesia, que viven en la pobreza”. (Telesur, 11 de agosto)Antes y durante la votación, el papel reaccionario de la Iglesia Católica fue desenmascarado para que todos lo vieran. Después de la derrota del proyecto de ley, miles de personas hicieron cola afuera del Congreso para renunciar a la Iglesia en mesas atendidas por la Coalición Argentina para un Estado Secular.La directora de cine Lucrecia Martel explicó que el movimiento de hoy exige la autonomía de las mujeres, pero “para algunos, su último bastión de poder es su poder sobre las mujeres, y esas personas no quieren conceder ese territorio”. (Guardian, 8 de agosto).Sin embargo, las mujeres jóvenes y audaces desafían el patriarcado y la misoginia todos los días y en todas partes.Dos muertes innecesarias desde el ‘no’Se calcula que 450.000 abortos clandestinos se realizan anualmente en Argentina, un país de 44 millones de personas,—uno cada 90 segundos. Alrededor de 70.000 mujeres son hospitalizadas anualmente debido a procedimientos fallidos, una causa principal de muertes maternas. La falta de aborto legal es una crisis de salud pública.La realidad es que las mujeres tienen abortos. La cuestión clave es si las mujeres pueden tener procedimientos médicamente seguros o si deben seguir sometiéndose a abortos arriesgados, a menudo peligrosos, a veces con resultados potencialmente mortales. Además, a las mujeres embarazadas con cáncer rutinariamente se les niega la quimioterapia y otros tratamientos debido a que la doctrina católica prevalece en asuntos médicos. Da prioridad al estado del feto sobre el derecho de la mujer a la atención médica esencial; algunas mujeres mueren como resultado.Trágicamente, dos mujeres jóvenes han muerto desde el “no”, ambas en hospitales en la provincia de Buenos Aires el 12 de agosto. Elizabeth, una mujer de 24 años, madre de un niño pequeño, murió de shock séptico después de usar tallos de perejil para tratar de terminar un embarazo. Otra joven murió el mismo día, también por un aborto autoadministrado.“La ilegalidad obliga a las mujeres más pobres a recurrir a las prácticas más desesperadas”, dijo un médico en Página / 12, un periódico argentino. (peoplesdispatch.org, 17 de agosto)Después de esas muertes, la Campaña Nacional por el Derecho al Aborto Legal, Seguro y Gratuito y la Red de Profesionales de la Salud por el Derecho a Decidir emitieron un comunicado en el que acusaban a todas las muertes relacionadas con el aborto Poder Ejecutivo “y los senadores que votaron en contra de la legalización. Las organizaciones preguntaron: ‘¿Cuántas mujeres embarazadas muertas se necesitan para comprender que el aborto debe ser legal, seguro y gratuito? ¡La clandestinidad mata! Ni Una Menos calificó a estas muertes de “femicidio” por parte del estado y dijo: [A los senadores] no les importan las vidas de las mujeres’”. (Telesur, 14 de agosto)Telesur informó el 9 de agosto que la ley se puede presentar de nuevo al Congreso en marzo del 2019, pero para entonces se estima que 87 mujeres más habrán muerto y 48.000 habrán sido hospitalizadas por complicaciones del aborto.!Mujeres en movimiento!Activistas en el movimiento de mujeres argentinas saludan a sus antepasados, las heroicas mujeres organizadoras en contra la dictadura militar, así como los líderes de las Madres de Plaza de Mayo. Un movimiento rejuvenecido protestó por la violencia de género en el 2015 y luego agregó demandas por los derechos reproductivos. Ahora las trabajadoras piden un salario igual por el mismo trabajo y el fin de la discriminación de género en el lugar de trabajo.El programa de austeridad del Presidente Macri ha impulsado a la clase trabajadora a la acción. Sus políticas impactarían severamente a las mujeres; muchos se encuentran entre los trabajadores peor pagados y/o tienen trabajos precarios. Los docentes, en su mayoría mujeres, marcharon por un salario más alto el 6 de marzo.En el Día Internacional de la Mujer, 8 de marzo, cientos de miles de mujeres marcharon en Buenos Aires por la igualdad, el derecho al aborto y el fin de la violencia de género. También pidieron una huelga general, que vincule sus luchas con la lucha de clases. Las trabajadoras a favor de las elecciones marcharon con sindicalistas en la huelga nacional militante del 25 de junio contra los recortes y los despidos impuestos por el gobierno.La Campaña Nacional por el Derecho al Aborto Legal, Seguro y Gratuito, una organización compuesta por 300 grupos, ha luchado durante 13 años . El aborto ahora se discute abiertamente en todo el país, y se debatió en el Congreso por primera vez.El vencimiento victorioso de una prohibición del aborto en mayo en Irlanda impulsó el movimiento de mujeres argentinas. A su vez, las movilizaciones masivas a favor de las elecciones en Argentina han electrificado el movimiento de mujeres en América Latina, donde el 97 por ciento de las mujeres viven en países donde el aborto es ilegal. En la noche de la votación argentina, se llevaron a cabo acciones de solidaridad en más de 10 países.Las redes sociales se llenaron de mensajes de apoyo de mujeres de todo el mundo. La solidaridad internacional también se expresó en movilizaciones en Australia, Bélgica, Inglaterra, Francia, Japón, los Países Bajos, España y en otros lugares. Las mujeres argentinas están en movimiento militante y no retrocederán. Las mujeres jóvenes están decididas a luchar por sus derechos. Después de la votación en el Senado, los activistas pro-elección tuitearon que esta campaña es más que una ley: “Es la lucha por la soberanía total sobre nuestros cuerpos”.

Political row generates more heat than light in Limerick

first_imgLinkedin Print WhatsApp Email Facebook Advertisement WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Minister Jan O’Sullivanby Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Minister Jan O’SullivanLIMERICK Sinn Féin council leader Maurice Quinlivan has called on Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan to stop claiming credit for work done by others.The disgruntled City North representative contacted the Limerick Post this week to shed light on a row over street lighting, stating that the Labour Party Minister had nothing to do with the planned upgrade of street lighting in Stenson Park, Farranshone, and that residents were bemused at her claims.“Jan O’Sullivan had leaflet dropped this week to all residents in Stenson Park claiming that both she and Cllr Frankie Daly have ‘delivered’ new street lighting for residents of the estate. These claims are utter nonsense and a work of fiction,” Cllr Quinlivan claimed.“In actual fact, the council contacted me with regard to initiating a pilot project for street lighting for Stenson Park back in March. I, along with other party members then carried out a survey of lighting in the estate, consulted with local residents and with the installer of lighting for the pilot project. I also highlighted the project at a local residents meeting and have been continuously liaising with the council on this matter. The council will be happy to verify all of this.”He pointed out that the residents of Stenson Park are no fools and know very well who was working on their behalf. A number of them, he said, contacted him to say what a cheek it was for Jan to claim these new lights were down to her.“As one woman said to me ‘Labour played us all for fools when they broke all their election promises and what is more they are still trying to take us for fools’,” he said.In response Minister O’Sullivan commented, “Cllr Quinlivan’s rant seems to suggest that he should have a veto on how I and my colleague Cllr Daly report back to constituents on issues they have raised with us. I’m sure Cllr Quinlivan knows that I hold a regular advice clinic in St Munchins Action Centre and that I have been representing the people of Stenson Park for more than 30 years.”“When I have positive news for a community I get out on the ground and let people know. Cllr Quinlivan seems more concerned about concocting stories for the press – I’ll leave that to him. It’s the people of Stenson Park who have elected me that I’m responsible to, not an irate councillor with a chip on his shoulder,” she concluded.

The second shot is for those who received the first shot at Ratliff Stadium during the last few weeks. Medical Center Health System has created a process for the community to receive their booster (2nd doses) shots of the Pfizer vaccines given at Ratliff Stadium, a news release details. The first booster shots will be available starting on Monday for those who received the first shot at Ratliff Stadium. Odessans can call 432-640-2747. That number is answered Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., which are also the same times to get the second shot at the Urgent Cares located at either 6030 W. University Blvd., or 3001 JBS Parkway. Those who need the booster must call and set an appointment within their five-date range, which is listed on the vaccination card. No booster shots will be given to patients before the first date listed on their card. If patients can’t make the five-date range on the card, they can still make an appointment after those dates. MCHS is also asking the community to only show up for their appointment a few minutes before their allotted time to avoid a crowd in the waiting room and to ensure the most efficient process possible.
