The 2020 stock market crash could cause investors to become increasingly concerned about their portfolio’s capacity to survive an uncertain economic outlook. After all, with many industries likely to suffer from reduced demand for their goods and services, it could prove to be an uncertain period for the stock market.Through buying a diverse range of financially-sound companies with defensive characteristics, you could protect your portfolio from a future market crash.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…Diversifying ahead of a market crashPerhaps the simplest and most effective means of reducing your portfolio’s risks is diversification. Holding a larger number of companies reduces your reliance on a small number of businesses to generate capital growth or income, which is likely to make your portfolio returns more stable and consistent.Furthermore, investing in multiple geographies and industries could reduce your overall risks. For example, the coronavirus pandemic is likely to affect some regions and sectors more than others. By having exposure to a wide range of countries and industries, you may be better able to protect your portfolio’s returns in the long run.Fortunately, the cost of buying stocks has fallen significantly over recent years through the growth in online sharedealing. Therefore, diversification is cheaper and more accessible to a larger number of investors than it used to be.Defensive stocksBuying defensive stocks could limit your losses during a market crash. Defensive stocks are generally less impacted by an economic downturn than their cyclical peers. They may, for example, have business models that are relatively unreliant on the performance of the economy. This may allow them to deliver solid financial performances even during a recession or depression.Examples of sectors where defensive stocks may be found include utilities, tobacco and healthcare. Although they may not necessarily offer capital growth during bull markets that can match that of cyclical businesses, they may continue to be relatively popular among investors during challenging market conditions. As such, their total returns in the long run could prove to be relatively impressive.Financially-sound businessesAnother means of preparing for a market crash is to buy stocks that have solid financial positions. This may include companies that have modest debt levels, access to multiple sources of finance, as well as large cash balances. They may be able to withstand a period of lower sales or even losses better than their sector peers. This could make them attractive to investors, which may help to support their stock prices.Through analysing company annual reports and investor updates, it is possible to build a relatively accurate picture of the financial strength of a business before buying it. Taking the time to understand its balance sheet strength could help you to avoid severe declines during a market crash, which could lead to higher returns from your portfolio over the long term.

Built on the top of a hill in a residential neighbourhood in São Paulo, the house seeks to adapt to the geography and to appreciate the views over the extensive wetlands of ​​the Pinheiros river, quite wooded in this western section.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe ground floor of the house follows the smooth slope of the land. Dining room and kitchen form a continuous space and are at a slightly elevated elevation relative to the sidewalk. Mid level below is the living room. In this movement, veranda and living room gain a double height and maintains a direct relationship with the lower level of the terrain. Three gardens surround these programs. The entrance garden is marked by a cherry tree already existing on the site; the central garden intercalating garage and veranda; the back garden gains the full width of the plot and includes a swimming pool.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Section BFor a better use of the veranda, the support of this entire portion of the house was limited to two metal columns, eccentric in relation to the slabs, and which are connected with a large metal beam over the house. This 16.50m long beam, which runs through the entire volume, hangs the ends of the slabs with metal rods of 32mm in diameter. Thus, the volume is suspended on the ground, releasing an extensive view that crosses the whole house. A cutout over the central garden creates an internal void in the volume around which various spaces communicate, from the living room and the veranda from the ground floor to rooms and upstairs studio. The metal columns have distinct geometries and punctuate these spaces on the level of the gardens.Save this picture!© Nelson KonA large concrete block contains the stairs inside it. The climb inside this structure increases the surprise of the wide landscape that opens on the upper floor, where a veranda and a family room are located. The children’s bedrooms are lined up on the northwest face, while the couple’s room faces the opposite side. They are rooms, always protected by the eaves of the roof slab and closed with sliding wooden panels with movable shutters.

Summer Give campaign raises £540,000 for children in poverty

first_img Tagged with: The Big Give AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Advertisement  61 total views,  1 views today Lisa Gagliani MBE, chief executive of The Childhood Trust said:“Our campaign to raise awareness and funds to support summer holiday care and provision has been a great success. The capital is not a great place to be for six weeks in the school holidays, if your family is living on less than £16,000 a year. We know there is a great need for clubs run by charities such as these, to provide care, food and some enrichment activities. On behalf of the anticipated 5,000 children who will be able to attend a SummerGive funded project this July/August, we’d like to say ‘Thank You’.” The second annual Summer Give campaign, a partnership between The Big Give and The Childhood Trust, has raised over £540,000 to help vulnerable children in London.The match-funding campaign took place on the theBigGive.org.uk from 16th-18th May, and was timed to coincide with National Children’s Day UK (NCDUK). 25 charities participated, with 16 of them hitting or exceeding their fundraising target, and over £300,000 was raised in the first 30 minutes of the campaign. Online donations were matched by a mix of funding from The Childhood Trust and pledges from the charities own major donors.The focus was to raise money for charities which work with the capital’s most disadvantaged children over the school holidays, when safety nets such as free school meals and after school clubs disappear. The organisations involved were all selected by The Childhood Trust for the strength of the programmes they provide for London’s most vulnerable children over the school holidays.[youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luJPLuy-yJ8[/youtube]center_img Summer Give campaign raises £540,000 for children in poverty Melanie May | 3 June 2016 | News  62 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Youngsters told to ‘keep the race in its place’

first_imgNewsCommunityYoungsters told to ‘keep the race in its place’By Staff Reporter – December 28, 2014 659 Email Linkedin Twitter Advertisement WhatsAppcenter_img Print by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up ‘KEEP the race in its place’ is the message offered as a part of a new programme aimed at diverting young offenders away from a life of car-related crime and the effects on society.Operating in conjunction with Extern, Garda Juvenile Liaison officers and community Gardaí, the initiative is aimed at youths who are vulnerable and possibly influenced into a life of crime and in particular car thefts.Community Garda for the Southill area Keith McCarthy explains how Motorsport Ireland and the Road Safety Authourity also teamed up with Extern to offer a workshop to youths from the area.“The message is simple from us, Motorsport Ireland and the RSA that we need to keep the race in its place and that is on the track.“High octane stuff is not for the streets and many of these involved in the programme are witness or at risk to this type of car crime activity. Car and vehicle based crime is amongst the highest ranked in the statistics for the Limerick area and we are hoping to steer these people away from it.The programme, Garda McCarthy explained, will work on a basis that all levels are included.“Some of the participants are role models in their own right and just need a project, while others may have offended in the past and were suitable for caution. Following an assessment they would have been deemed suitable for a restorative justice project like this.”In relation to the project at The Factory in Galvone, Motosport Ireland and the RSA joined forces with Garda Tony Miniter to present a 90 minute workshop where the effects of car crime on society were outlined.Life stories of those who suffered an Acquired Brain Injury from car crime as well as stories of families who experienced the tragedy of road death outlined in graphic detail the consequences of car related crime.Garda McCarthy went on to explain that in the New Year, the group hope to advance the programme to include a mechanics aspect for those who “disconnect from car crime as Motorsport Ireland is a highly regularised and regulated body.“We are looking to develop and expand different prospects in the project and in 2015, we hope to step up to the next level for those that remain within a certain set of parameters.”Mike Walsh, Mid West manager with Extern said that the project has been working in Limerick for 11 years and explained that “in the early days we worked mostly with ex-offenders, but now we are co-ordinating that with ‘at risk’ referrals and primary referrals from Juvenile Liaison officers.“This is all about giving those a chance to do something good and pursue interests in a positive way”, he said.
