We can all take a side in this debate, but the fact remains that no one knows for sure. This is why I think the most rational approach in the current climate is to focus on maximising the chances of achieving a great result rather than stretching for an exceptional one. Here are three smart investing moves that fit well with this mentality.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…1. Drip-feedThe desire to buy at the very bottom and sell at the very top is natural. In reality, it’s very hard (if not impossible) to consistently do so. This is partly because no one rings a bell to announce market extremes. There’s also a human element to this. When markets crash, fear abounds. Most people worry that they’ll fall further. When markets then rally, greed takes over. A lot of us assume we’re in danger of missing the boat and dive in headfirst. And then they fall again.Enter ‘pound-cost averaging’, otherwise known as drip-feeding your money into the market. Simply set up an instruction with your broker to invest the same amount of cash into a fund or stock on a monthly basis.By following this process, you remove emotion from the equation. You also help smooth out returns by (automatically) buying more when prices are down and less when prices are up. It saves a lot on commission too! 2. DiversifyGradually moving your cash into stocks is all well and good, but it will count for very little if your portfolio isn’t sufficiently diversified. Having the vast majority of your wealth in oil stocks, for example, won’t protect you in the event of a crash in the price of the black stuff (such as we’ve recently experienced). Holding only small-cap stocks can be a recipe for a disaster in tough economic times as many of these might fail.This is why holding a combination of nimble minnows. solid mid-caps and established blue-chip stocks in a variety of sectors is smart for most people.Of course, diversification can extend beyond stocks. Having a balanced portfolio containing some exposure to bonds, property and gold can provide protection if/when one or two of these assets perform poorly. Will this put a cap on returns? Yes, up to a point. Research has shown that keeping all your money in stocks will give you a better return over time compared to spreading it around.What research can’t do, however, is replicate the emotional rollercoaster inherent in such a strategy. I’d argue that sacrificing some profit for good health is worth it.3. DefendA final smart move to make in uncertain times is to gravitate towards those stocks that have proved particularly resilient in previous economic storms.Within this category, I’d include consumer goods firms, utility companies and big pharma. All three sectors provide goods and services that are always in demand so earnings should remain relatively stable. This also means that many of these companies will continue to pay dividends to their owners at a time when a lot of firms won’t.The only flipside to the tendency of defensive stocks to hold their value is that they are unlikely to generate the biggest gains as markets recover.

County implements Think 5 recycling program

first_img The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! TAGSOrange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonOrange County Government Previous articleApopka Weekly Arrest ReportNext articleCounty Solar Co-op makes bulk purchase possible Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 County implements Think 5 recycling programBy County Commissioner Bryan NelsonOrange County CommissionerBryan NelsonThe Solid Waste Division of Orange County offers curbside collection of household garbage and recycling to all county residents. For over 25 years recycling has been a part of the Orange County community, and on January 1, 2016 this effort was expanded with the new Automated Curbside Recycling Program. As part of this program, recycling was transitioned from dual stream recycling to single stream.Dual stream required that residents separate their recyclables such as glass, plastics, paper, and cardboard into two separate 18-gallon bins. The new single stream recycling eliminates this step by simply combining all recyclables in to one 95 gallon rolling cart.These new carts have the potential to increase the amount of residential recycling. This would prove beneficial in eliminating extra waste from the landfill, but the success of this new recycling program depends on proper recycling of materials and education about what can go in them. The Think 5 Campaign is specifically designed to make recycling easier for residents by simply focusing on recycling of five items:PlasticsMetalGlassCardboardPaperThe overall goal of the campaign is to raise awareness about good recycling habits. One item that has can be particularly stubborn for recycling facilities to handle are plastic bags. Many residents believe that plastic bags can be recycled through the Curbside Recycling Program but the facilities are not equipped to deal with them. Plastic bags force facility employees to shut down the recycling machines in order to remove the bags from the machine’s teeth. Residents in Orange County should keep these five items in mind when deciding whether something is recyclable or not. If a resident wishes to recycle their plastic bags, they can be dropped off at local grocery stores such as Publix. Other items that are not recyclable include:Delivery pizza boxesDishes, paper plates, pots, or pansTiresBatteriesClothes/textilesElectronicsToys or laundry basketsJuice pouchesShredded paperPolystyrene/styrofoamGift wrap, ribbons, or bowsHangers (plastic or wire)Orange County ranked within the Top 20 Florida counties with a 52% recycling rate last year. This places the county on a great path towards achieving the 75% recycling rate my 2020. With over 200,000 households in Orange County, the Think 5 Campaign will help steer the county towards this important goal.Every year the Solid Waste Division hosts visitors at the county landfill for Orange County Recycles Day. On this day the county landfill offer tours to visitors in an effort to boost education and knowledge about how our waste is processed and handled. This year the landfill will be open for tours on Saturday, November 12th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a great opportunity to learn about the recycling process and how residents can work to eliminate waste from the landfill.According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “In 2013, Americans generated about 254 million tons of trash and recycled and composted about 87 million tons of this material, equivalent to a 34.3 percent recycling rate. On average, we recycled and composted 1.51 pounds of our individual waste generation of 4.40 pounds per person per day.”Recycling is essential to reducing waste and conserving our environment. Orange County residents can play an important role in this effort by Thinking 5.Inquiries about recycling and the Think 5 Campaign can be sent via email to [email protected] or called into the Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601.

Rupeni Caucau scores his first try for Toulouse

first_imgWednesday Feb 16, 2011 Rupeni Caucau scores his first try for Toulouse Rupeni Caucau scored his first try for Toulouse on the weekend as they snatched a narrow 22-19 victory over La Rochelle at the Stade Marcel Deflandre. There was a glimpse of what we remember from the dynamic winger, so things are looking up. The goal for Caucau, and all Fijian and in fact neutral fans, would be to have him fit, on form, and turning out for his country at the World Cup in New Zealand later this year. His move to table topping Toulouse was probably the best thing for him as hes managed to shed some of his bulk and by all accounts seems to be playing some decent rugby, with this try in particular proving vital in the tight Top 14 game on the weekend. His slick handling set up a nice run from fellow Fijian Vilimoni Delasau, who returned the favour for Caucau to dash away, beating a few hapless La Rochelle backs. He also made a nice tackle earlier in the game, showing hes adept at second centre as he kept an eye on his man, fullback Greg Goosen, all the way, then squashed him into touch. The former Auckland Blues superstar, who scored 15 tries in 14 Super Rugby caps, was recently named as being in the top five of greatest ever Super Rugby players. “Rupeni Caucaunibuca became the competition’s most feared winger,” the website said. “Caucau’s ball running almost defied belief. In full flight it appeared as though he was in second gear, yet chasing defenders still invariably ended up eating grass. The Fijian had the strength and power of a forward while also possessing blinding pace.” It now remains to be seen if his comeback has been left far too late, or if he will in fact make it to the top to show off his considerable talents at the show piece of world rugby.Time: 02:20 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

On a stunning site with panoramic water views and wonderful exposures to the changing light of the day stood a typical 1960’s, three story A-frame.

These were the conditions overcome in this dramatic, open, expansive, light-filled renovation in Fire Island, New York.Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaThe spiral stair in the center was by far the most constraining element in terms of plan, obstructing the view and limiting the travel of light. To maximize daylight, views of the bay, and to open the plan the stair had to be relocated.

We have to come up with a formula to benefit the public as well, Court said.Division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice GS Kulkarni were hearing two separate PILs together, one was filed by the Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa seeking inclusion of the advocates in the list of essential services and the second PIL was filed by Consumer Court Advocates Association seeking directions to resume physical hearing in consumer courts.At the very outset, Chief Justice Dipankar Datta told Advocate Uday Warunjikar appearing for both the petitioners-“Have you seen the newspaper today? Government is now allowing private organisations to open and function at 50% capacity.We were contemplating that instead of opening Courts for physical hearing during peak hours, we can open during lean hours, like between 2 pm and 6 pm.”At this juncture, Government Pleader Poornima Kantharia intervened and added that trains running currently are full and the rush seems to have increased from before the lockdown. To this, Justice Kulkarni said-“Why not catch the empty hours (for physical hearing)? All of us know how life in Mumbai is. So what we can do is we can have hearings during the lean hours of traffic.”The Chief Justice then addressed the plea to include advocates in the list of essential services to facilitate their travel in local trains-“Let us not keep this limited to lawyers, it may seem biased. We cannot only think of lawyers. The situation today is such that people are starving, they are losing their jobs. So we have to come up with a formula that benefits others as well.”Court also called the state government’s decision to open restaurants a welcome move, noting that people who have lost their livelihoods will benefit. Chief Justice Datta then referred to apprehensions of people in resuming physical hearings, he said-“The situation in Kerala is serious. After Onam, there is a reported 126% rise in cases of Coronavirus. So, people have to abide by the protocols prescribed by the States and the Centre.Co-operation of the people is needed. The Bar Council is meant for Advocates no doubt but you are a statutory body so you have a duty towards others as well.”Finally, the bench asked the State to consider the submissions and discussion in today’s hearing to allow lawyers of lower courts such as Consumer courts etc to travel in local trains and respond accordingly.State Bar Council’s PIL states-“In the MMRDA region, which includes Mumbai city, the suburbs, Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts, there are 25,000 lawyers. Most of them are practising in nearby Court stations. However, for the matters before other Court stations, some of them are relying on Railway services. It is submitted that most of them are not having daily matters in other Court complexes, but several of them travel by local trains either for reaching theri Court complexes or their offices. Roughly around 2000 lawyers may travel in the present station purely on Western, Harbour and Central railways.”On the other hand, plea filed by the Consumer Courts Advocate’s Association seeks directions to start physical or virtual hearings for effective settlement of consumer disputes pending before the District Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission and the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Next Storylast_img read more
