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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 4th August, 2020 The recent stock market crash has caused a number of UK shares to trade on low valuations. While they may not benefit from a sustained recovery in the short run, due to risks such as Brexit and a second wave of coronavirus, buying cheap UK stocks today could lead to impressive returns in the long run.By investing £10k, or any other amount, in a diverse range of strong companies that operate in industries with long-term growth potential, your ISA could profit from the stock market’s recovery potential.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…Diversification after a market crashDiversifying your portfolio across a range of UK shares is always important, but it’s arguably even more crucial following the market crash. Many companies face difficult operating conditions that may persist in the coming months. They may also need to adapt their business models to changing consumer trends that could have been quickened by lockdown measures.Fortunately for investors, building a diverse portfolio is less expensive than ever. Online sharedealing means UK shares can be purchased with very low commission charges. Meanwhile, tax-efficient accounts such as Stocks and Shares ISAs have minimal management fees.Although diversifying may not be an especially exciting prospect, it can help to reduce risk ahead of a potential second market crash. It’s also arguably too soon to know which sectors will produce strong recoveries in the coming years. Diversification increases the likelihood that you’ll avoid overexposure to slower-growth industries, and invest in more attractive industries.Business strengthAssessing business strength after a market crash may help to improve your ISA’s return prospects, and also minimise its risks. For example, buying a range of companies that all have low debt, strong cash flow, and that operate in sectors with reliable demand for their products, is likely to be a more logical approach than buying businesses with weak financial positions and that lack a competitive advantage.Therefore, analysing company annual reports and understanding the size of their economic moat could be a shrewd move. It may enable you to survive a potential further downturn. It wll also allow you to benefit, to a greater extent, from a likely stock market recovery in the coming years.Cash positionOf course, an uncertain outlook for the stock market means holding some cash back in the short term could be a logical approach. It may enable you to benefit from a second market crash in 2020, through accessing lower valuations.As such, investing gradually, rather than in a lump sum, could be a sound move. Clearly, holding cash for the long run is unlikely to lead to impressive returns. However, having some cash on hand can provide peace of mind in an uncertain period for the economy. It’ll also allow you the scope to buy high-quality UK shares at even cheaper prices in the coming months.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. FTSE 100 investing: I think these 3 macro-trends will drive a stock market rally in 2021 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. So far, 2020 has been a washout year for the FTSE 100 index. The index was down 22% in September compared to January. While some recovery was seen in the months following the stock market crash, it proved to be weak and uneven. But I think there’s still a whole lot to look forward to as we go into 2021. Here are three macro trends that could flip the mood back to optimism in the next year. #1. V-shaped recoveryMonthly economic data has already shown recovery. The Bank of England has long been optimistic and expects a V-shaped recovery. Continued policy support in the form of the jobs support scheme, stamp duty holiday, and financial support to struggling businesses can continue to drive growth for now, until the economy finds its own stability. In other words, any impending broad-based economic disaster could have been averted even if it takes a while for the economy to start booming again. I’d consider FTSE 100 cyclicals like retailers JD Sports Fashion and luxury brands like Burberry to buy into the recovery, in the UK and elsewhere. 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…#2. Coronavirus vaccineWhile all of us would hope it were sooner, according to The Guardian’s latest report, a vaccine could be available as early as next year. Another coronavirus surge in the UK is a mood dampener. The markets aren’t happy with the US President Donald Trump, contracting it either. But on the whole, progress has been made and FTSE 100 companies are at the forefront of vaccine development. AstraZeneca is one example. It’s already ahead, and if it reaches the finish line, the already coveted stock will add another feather to its cap. At the very least, better control on coronavirus is possible by then, which should give some more breathing space to travel and hospitality stocks like International Consolidated Airlines Group and Intercontinental Hotels Group. #3. FTSE 100 stocks’ dividends returnMany FTSE 100 companies suspended dividends earlier this year and some were explicitly encouraged to, like banks and insurers. However, a few months later, some companies have already started paying dividends again. Stocks with some of the biggest dividend yields, like BT and Lloyds Banks, may not be back in the fray yet, but others like house-builder Persimmon are. Its level of dividends is lower than it was earlier, but the fact that it has brought them back makes me optimistic that they will grow overtime. I think as more companies regain confidence to pay dividends, investors will return to the stock markets as well. Risks to FTSE 100That said, risk exist too. We don’t know what the outcome of the US elections will be. In so far as the world catches a cold when the US sneezes, we should watch out for this one. There’s also the Brexit hot potato. A lot rides on how things turn out in the negotiations. All in all, though, there’s much reason to look forward to 2021, even if right now it may not look like it.

Game management“If you’re likely to be playing 30-40 matches per season, work with your coaches to plan the year. Where in the season are you going to be getting some rest? Can you be managed through the season, resting during some of the perceived easier games?“Don’t ever be tempted to play three games in eight days, it’s just not worth it. Injury rates go through the roof when players have to periodically contend with this scenario with fixture lists. Fatigue is way too high to contemplate performing at the level required.”Related: Check out Henry Barratt’s website here.4. Prevention is better than cure“Work out how many physio/massage/stretch sessions you need to do per week to keep in top condition and allow your body to recover. Add regular mobility/stretch sessions, even look at the power of learning to breathe effectively for relaxation, calming the bodies sympathetic nervous system.Body work: All Black Sam Cane going through his gym routine (Getty Images)“I would suggest most rugby players lack true flexibility, have never come across breathing strategies and spend zero time addressing these areas.”5. Although part of a team, focus on your individual needs“As well as making the most of what the club has to offer, is there anything else you can be doing outside of this that will help keep you strong both physically and mentally? Is it a mentor, therapist, acupuncturist, speed coach? Someone to look at your individual needs with a different perspective? Pro player turned personal trainer Henry Barratt offers his advice on managing your body throughout a tough campaign “Be prepared to pay for this service and see this as an investment to the longevity of your career. That said, it has to be done with consent and in symmetry with the club’s training. Don’t be the lone ranger and potentially alienate yourself from the club.”Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Five rest and recovery tips to survive a long rugby seasonHenry Barratt’s professional rugby career was cut short due to injury at the age of 25 and now he works as a personal trainer.Before retiring in 2008, he had played for Harlequins, Wasps and England U20, and he has dedicated the past ten years to teaching others how to train to an elite level. Now he is going to give you his best rest and recovery advice.“While it is important to push yourself throughout the season to help drive your team and career forward, a lot can change in a very short period of time and managing your body is crucial to ensuring a long and successful career,” he says.Whether you’re a professional player, semi-pro or play purely for the love of the game, here is Barratt’s advice on how to maximise rest and recovery to help you get through the long season ahead.1. Don’t neglect mid-season recovery protocols“It is no coincidence that the players who take the time to follow recovery protocols are the ones who are the most professional, detailed and serious about the longevity of their career.Chilling out: Australia prop Sekope Kepu in an ice bath (Getty Images)“Massages, ice baths, regular check-ups and treatments with physios/chiropractors/osteopaths all go a long way to body maintenance. It is simply not possible to survive the season and the physicality required without having treatment, no matter how good you feel.”2. Listen to your body“No one needs to be a hero in every training session (unless you have a serious point to prove). When muscles get tight, train appropriately. Help the coaches and conditioning staff to understand your body so it’s no surprise to them if you need to rest from a session.“Too many times players get injured in training through fatigue. Why push through that last set/sprint, when you feel your body is telling you to slow down or stop?”

Canon John Kafwanka, welcomed the theme as “the best news for the Communion at this point in time.”Kafwanka explained that “it has become evident in many parts of the Communion that the challenge we face today in Christian discipleship is the divide between ‘professed faith’ and ‘lived faith.’ This is mainly because we have not taken seriously the need to intentionally equip ourselves and our members in considering the implications of faith in Christ in every sphere of our life. The theme for next ACC meeting calls us back to that.”In the past two years, the Anglican Witness group of Anglican leaders and mission practitioners has been advancing the centrality in the life and mission of the Church of equipping all God’s people for intentional discipleship, so that Anglicans and Episcopalians everywhere become intentional in considering how their faith bears on their everyday life experience.Focus on intentional discipleship has come as a response to Christian challenges such as failure to connect faith and professional life, low commitment and impact on community life, lack of confidence to share personal faith and pass it to next generation, and decline in Church membership in some cases.A video, “Being a Christian in everyday life” has been recently published to illustrate some of the current issues both in the Global South and North, and why intentional discipleship is critical.The chair of the Anglican Witness core group, the Archbishop-elect of South East Asia, the Rt. Rev. Ng Moon Hing, said: “In this season of turbulence, intentional discipleship is the way of going forward … I hope and pray that ACC will promote a season of intentional discipleship in the Anglican Communion.”Anglican Witness is gathering a variety of resources to help churches equip their members to be Christ’s credible witnesses in every sphere of their life. It aims to promote good practice from dioceses and parishes where an emphasis on discipleship is already being implemented.Anglican Witness invites people willing to share their own stories and resources to get in touch.

Photo: ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] Disappearing islands in the south Pacific, recent hurricanes in the Caribbean and food security issues in Africa were amongst the items discussed by Anglican church leaders as they discussed climate change and the environment during the Primates Meeting in Canterbury, England.The discussions began on Oct., 3 when Archbishop John Holder, primate of the West Indies, briefed his colleagues on recent hurricanes in the Caribbean; and continued Oct. 5 when the primates heard about disappearing islands in the south Pacific and food security issues in Africa.Later, in an interview with the Anglican Communion News Service, Holder said that he welcomed the primates’ discussion on the environment, saying that it was “very important” for the church to speak out on climate change. “We are connecting these two devastating hurricanes [Irma and Maria] to climate change,” he said. “We can’t prove it but we think there is some kind of climate change element in there.”Commenting on the primates’ discussions, he said: “We were hearing the stories from different parts of the world on climate change,” he said.“And I think we are all convinced it is a fact of life. Even if you take away the term ‘climate change’, something is going wrong with the weather. The weather is becoming extremely destructive and there must be a reason for that.“So, all of us . . . understand this is a problem and we commit to doing whatever we can to alleviate this problem; or at least help people prepare themselves for the bad weather. And when they are devastated or when they have bad experiences, then chip in to help them to reconstruct and revive themselves.”On Oct. 5, Archbishop of Southern Africa Thabo Makgoba began the morning session with a biblical reflection on John 1: 29. He told ACNS that he finished his reflection with “a challenge, as Jesus invites us – as he said to Peter – to feed his lambs, to feed his sheep.“And I lamented the fact that very often when we discuss things as primates we discuss the social justice issue of feeding the lamb and the vulnerable.” He encouraged his fellow-primates to think about “caring for the where the lambs and the vulnerable are – that is the environment” and to “make the linkage between social justice and climate justice.”A number of primates spoke about climate change-issues in their region, including Archbishop Albert Chama of Central Africa, who spoke about food security; and Archbishop Winston Halapua, the bishop of Polynesia in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, who spoke about rising sea levels.“The design of the Primates Meeting is just so overwhelmingly empowering,” Archbishop George Takeli, the primate of Melanesia, said, “particularly the sessions on reflections on the Scriptures.“The reflection by Archbishop Thabo was so deeply transforming – particularly in the invitation to see the world through the eyes of God. That was the greatest challenge and the life-transforming invitation that was given to us this morning when he asked how many provinces were affected by food security and climate change – I think the whole house did raise their hand up.”In a starkly powerful message, he said: “some may see information on climate change on television and take it as interesting reading, as entertainment; some would read it in newspapers and treat it as something to occupy time, but for me – and especially for us in Melanesia – it is actually an urgent matter.”He said that there were three important issues to consider: “The weather pattern throughout the year is no longer consistent, creating surprise cyclone seasons – we have more cyclones than before causing flash flooding. Some places where there are no floods we are getting flash flooding happening.“Secondly, the climate change is affecting the soil – the whole overall environment where you could plant two or three times before and you could harvest the same amount of food, is no longer there.” He said that many Melanesians live of subsistence farming and can no longer grow crops to feed themselves and their families.“Thirdly,” he said, “the sea rise: the sea level rise is effecting some of our islands [which are] are now under water. It is a serious issue. It is a serious concern.”Makgoba is recognised as a leading champion of environmental concerns. He too welcomed the discussions. “What I hope will come from this meeting is a commitment by each primate to pray for social justice issues but to look at those with the eyes of saying the climate, the environment, the earth where they are happening, ought to be cared for,” he said.Takeli added: “What strikes me is the awareness, as I listen to many stories from my brother primates throughout the world I see that I am being buried deep in their own issues as well. They become part of me.“Our stories are making the world become a very small world – that we are part of each other. And what I begin to sense from the Primates’ Meeting is that all of us are moving towards creating a strong network to work together between the primates, addressing the issues of climate change and other issues together.”Who are the primates and what is the Primates Meeting?

I am with you today to discuss energy. What is the connection?After love it is energy that makes the world go ‘round. Everything we do uses energy, and the energy industry has helped to make this country great. Unfortunately, our energy dependence has produced some very serious side effects.Did we love our neighbors when we brought them to this country from Africa as slaves? Do we love our neighbors when our use of electricity seriously impacts the health of the poor who live in the shadow of coal burning power plants? Do we love our neighbors when our consumption of foreign oil contributes significantly to conflict around the world? And do we love our neighbors when our emission of greenhouse gasses changes the very climate on this fragile earth, our island home?The community of faith has always led in the great movements for justice. We led in the abolition of slavery. We led in the movement for women’s rights. We led in the struggle for civil rights, and we continue to lead in the effort to remove the curse of racism from this land. Now it is time for us to respect the dignity of every human being and all life on earth. Let us begin by addressing our consumption of energy.The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has urged the developed nations to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gasses by eight-five percent in order to stabilize the climate at its current state. The leadership of this country, however, has refused to commit itself to any reduction at all.Religious leaders of every faith have reacted by passing resolutions, writing letters to the President, and lobbying Congress for sustainable energy policies, but we need to do more. It is time to practice what we preach and to show forth not only with our lips, but in our lives what we ask our political leadership to do for us.It is time for the community of faith to practice energy conservation, invest in energy efficiency, and thus save more than enough money to afford cleaner sources of energy. Together, we can save energy, save money, save the planet, protect the peace, protect human health, and create jobs too. As we gain strength in the marketplace, we will have a voice as to where the jobs go and who gets them.This is not just a ministry for the environment, but a call to love and justice for all our neighbors across town, around the world and our intergenerational neighbors, our children, for years to come. And for those of you who are Christians, this is not just a call, it is a commandment. Amen. Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rev. Dr. Franklin E Vilas says: Rector Smithfield, NC Primates Meeting October 6, 2017 at 9:20 am The President of the United States has rolled back many of the regulations protecting the environment, and so has joined in the battle against those concerned about climate change. He has just appointed a coal industry lobbyist as second in command of the Environmental Protection Agency, with a clear intent of dismantling this crtucial agency. The Church needfs to spreak out against this destructive administration in the name of God.

Along the strip of land between sea and the coastal road from Bodrum to İçmeler, which is amongst the most popular holiday destinations in Turkey, one doesn’t expect to see group of buildings of a large scale. It can be claimed that this strip which is preserved in its natural texture, provides a surprising freshness for the eyes that are accustomed to the density of buildings that exists inside the city of Bodrum.Save this picture!MAster PlanVicem Residences are located on a rocky tip on this strip. The tension that arises from the conflict of the virgin quality of the coast and the presumable dense physical pattern that is going to be built on the site emerges as the most crucial driver for the design. In this sense, the settlement scheme can be regarded as an experimentation of mass fragmentation that problematizes the phenomenon of the stereotypical “large single house” which is widely seen at Bodrum, as it displays a concern about topography in three dimensional sense which is developed regarding functional relationships and vistas on the land. In order for the buildings to integrate with the natural texture and even to dissolve into the rocky site, the buildings are designed as fragmented masses and the surface articulation of the parts that sit on ground are kept as a natural as possible.Save this picture!© Cemal EmdenThick stone walls provide an efficient isolation and keep the inner space cool in summer and hot in winter. Other masses that are located above them, in other words perch upon them, are designed in a subtle way that they have a light, evanescent existence. Facades of those masses are covered wooden louvers that can be oriented according to sun.
