Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. The FTSE 100’s stock market crash may not yet be over. A weak economic outlook means that investor sentiment could decline in the coming months.This may cause some investors to pivot from stocks to gold at the present time. They may favour the precious metal’s status as a store of wealth during a turbulent economic period.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…However, the recovery potential of the stock market means that buying bargain shares now could produce high returns in the long run. As such, following Warren Buffett’s advice and buying a range of high-quality businesses today could improve your prospects of retiring early.An uncertain outlook for the FTSE 100At the present time, the outlook for the FTSE 100 is exceptionally difficult to predict. Risks such as trade tensions between the US and China may remain high post-coronavirus, while the prospect of a second wave of the pandemic may cause sentiment among businesses and investors to deteriorate over the coming months.As such, the gold price could outperform the index over the short term. Its track record as a defensive asset could make it increasingly popular at a time when low interest rates look set to remain in place over the medium term. This means that income-producing assets such as cash and bonds lack appeal compared to gold, thereby increasing the appeal of the precious metal among risk-averse investors.A changing futureThe FTSE 100’s track record shows that positive and negative market conditions never last. Certainly, there could be a prolonged period of difficulty ahead for the world economy that weighs on stock prices. However, over time, investor sentiment and the operating environments for businesses are likely to improve. This means that stock prices are very likely to recover, which could increase investor demand for them and reduce demand for lower-risk assets such as gold.Investors such as Warren Buffett have previously sought to purchase high-quality businesses while their futures are challenging. In doing so, they have obtained wide margins of safety that have increased their long-term return potential. By holding such companies for the long term, and waiting for their financial performances to improve and for investor sentiment to do likewise, it is possible to earn relatively high returns from the stock market.Worrying about a market crashClearly, buying FTSE 100 shares today could mean there are paper losses ahead. However, investors with an outlook that spans years, rather than months, can use short-term market weakness to boost their chances of generating high returns from buying stocks when they are priced at bargain levels.Such a strategy has been successful for Warren Buffett. It may not make you a billionaire, but could boost your retirement prospects and even help to bring your retirement date a step closer.

Five of the Best Wales v Australia Matches

first_imgWales, displaying moments of offloading to make Leone Nakarawa jealous, led early, but Australia chipped their way back into the game – with Matt Burke’s sumptuous line (no, not that Matt Burke) the pick of them. Paul Moriarty, whose nephew Ross is likely to face the Australians this weekend, scored a crucial Welsh try to keep his side in touch.At the last, with the Australians leading 21-15, Jonathan Davies launched a giant Garryowen that Wales regathered. Paul Thorburn offloaded to put Adrian Hadley into the corner, and the Welsh suddenly needed only the conversion.Full-back Thorburn split the posts from an improbable angle before slamming the ball into touch to seal a win for Wales.Wales 29 Australia 29, Cardiff 2006After 18 years of losing to the Australians, Wales finally broke their hoodoo in 2005, triumphing 24-22 in a large part due to the genius of Shane Williams. A year later they’d play out a match even more exciting, tying a six-try thriller in Cardiff. Jacob Whitehead has looked through the history books to pick out a handful of standout Tests between Wales and the Wallabies High pressure: Wales win a lineout against Australia last year (Getty Images ) Five of the Best Wales v Australia MatchesWales and Australia will face off on Sunday in what is expected to be the decisive game of Pool D at the Rugby World Cup. So here’s a reminder of five of the best Tests between the Welsh and the Wallabies…Australia 19 Wales 17, Sydney 1978When you’re cornered in the corner of your local club by an old-timer, they always tell you the game was different in their day. You nod politely and smile weakly, feeling slightly doubtful. But when you remember a game like this, your compatriot is proved decisively right.Wales won their first (and only) Test in Australia in 1969, but the heartbeat of that team had fallen away by 1978. Yet an injury-hit Wales, sporting legendary full-back JPR Williams at openside flanker, pushed Australia hard in Sydney.Winning Wallabies: Tony Shaw and Paul McLean celebrate the 1978 victory (Getty Images)It is a game remembered for two controversial moments, neither of which we should expect to see in Tokyo this weekend. Firstly, Graham Price had his jaw broken after being punched by Steve Finnane and the Welsh prop had to eat liquidised food for six weeks.Then controversy marred the closing moments of the game. Australia led 16-13 with ten minutes to go when their fly-half Paul McLean dropped a goal to seemingly seal the game for Australia. Or did he?Blinded by the setting sun, the referee was unable to tell if McLean’s kick passed between the posts. Accusations of bias weren’t helped by the fact that referee Dick Byers sported the socks of his home club, Queensland State. Although he was told with a few choice words that the Australian’s effort had missed by three or four yards, the points stayed on the board, rendering Gerald Davies’s late try a mere consolation.Wales 22 Australia 21, Rotorua 1987A Rugby World Cup third-place play-off does not linger long in the memory. Do you remember that Wales and Australia played in one back in 2011? I didn’t. However, their meeting in 1987 was a thrilling affair, as a last-minute score secured Wales’ highest-ever World Cup finish.Whilst ‘form’ can hardly be said to matter in a play-off between losing semi-finalists, Wales were the clear underdogs. New Zealand had swept them aside 49-6 the week before, whilst Australia lost narrowly to France.A moment of madness from David Codey changed all this. The openside’s Jackie Chan-inspired entrance to a ruck saw him sent off for stamping after just five minutes. Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage, which we update regularly with news and features.Follow Rugby World magazine on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The year 2006 was an interesting one for Welsh rugby, as they slalomed from 2005’s Grand Slam to 2007’s ignominious World Cup exit. Yet in Williams, Dwayne Peel and Gavin Henson they had three backs in contention for a World XV.Henson set up a crucial try for Williams with hands speedier than a sign language interpreter at an Eminem concert to bring Wales back into the game.Show of class: Shane Williams scores a try in 2006 despite being tackled (Getty Images)They moved through the gears to lead 26-24 with 15 minutes left, when some Chris Latham magic took the Australians back into the lead. Picking up the ball on the bounce at halfway, he beat three Welshmen in the five-metre channel before slamming the ball down in the corner. The headline seemed to scream ‘Late Aussie try dooms Wales!’, but then a James Hook penalty tied the scores. It’s the only ever draw between the two sides.Wales 12 Australia 14, Cardiff 2012To 2012, and the epitome of Welsh Antipodean heartbreak. Wales had won a Grand Slam that March, but lost all three Tests to Australia on their summer tour, and were struggling for form. The last two Tests of that tour saw late penalties from Mike Harris and Berrick Barnes doom Welsh hopes of victory.A Welsh win would bring some sort of redemption and break the hoodoo, and for most of the game it looked as if Sam Warburton’s men would manage to grind out a victory. Leigh Halfpenny was in inspired form, almost scoring what would have been one of the great Millennium Stadium tries from a chip and chase. Four penalties from his boot gave Wales a 12-9 lead with a minute left.Late show: Kurtley Beale scores a last-minute winning try in 2012 (Getty Images)Then Kurtley Beale picked up the ball on the right wing. Never mind that the pass was suspiciously forward. Never mind that Beale was playing out of position, making a surprise appearance at No 10. Never mind that Beale is a man for whom inconsistency seems a badge of honour. Beale was at his beguilingly beautiful best, and Wales were at their most fearful reticent worst. He dived in at the corner to win the game for Australia.Commentators are generally seen as omniscient overseers capable of calm analysis and passionate rhetoric alike. Not here. For a moment Eddie Butler, holder of 16 Welsh caps, was the soul of every Welsh rugby fan. “Oh,” he said sadly. “It’s going to be a try for Kurtley Beale.”Wales 9 Australia 6, Cardiff 2018A quick apology is in order. Looking back, this last game was really not a classic. Not even Dan Biggar’s mum, having watched her son kick a late winning penalty, would call this a classic.But in the moment, when Biggar slotted the penalty to give Wales their first win over Australia for a decade, it would have felt like one.Keeping cool: Dan Biggar kicks the winning penalty in 2018 (Getty Images)No Welshman has scored more points against Australia than Leigh Halfpenny, who has scored 93 against the Wallabies, but the full-back had a slight off-day with the boot. Nevertheless, Wales led 6-3 with ten minutes left.It was gritty, it was gallant, it was gutsy. A low-scoring arm wrestle, one of those matches where it feels like every play is somehow more vital, so hard are points to come by. So when Matt Toomua did his best Elton Flatley impression with a few minutes left to draw his side level, it felt like an absolute dagger.See Beale, see Barnes… Wales were not destined to beat Australia. So when Ned Hanigan gave away a penalty for not rolling away, it almost seemed a mirage.Biggar loves a late, pressure-filled penalty. The odds of success must have been north of 90%. But how many Welsh fans, after their history of recent heartbreak against Australia, actually thought he’d kick it?Was it a classic? Almost certainly not. In the moment? It just might well have been.

Screengrab from KLRNAmid declining enrollment, school closures and all manner of budget woes, the Pasadena Unified School District school board generally finds itself planning year to year, crisis to crisis. But Thursday the board played the long game.By a 6-1 vote, the board approved a resolution under which solar-paneled structures will be erected at 12 PUSD sites. The board also entered into a 25-year power-purchase agreement with a solar provider that, according to staff estimates, will save the district about $4.8 million in energy costs over the life of the contract.The board vote came during an afternoon meeting conducted remotely under “Safer at Home” guidelines during the coronavirus crisis.The solar plan passed Thursday calls for a company called California PV Energy 3 to design, construct, install, maintain, and own and operate the power-generating structures — at no construction or maintenance costs to the district.The new “photovoltaic” power-generation hardware will ride atop car and shade structures and be operational by April 30, 2021, according to a staff report.The structures would not generate all the energy needed for each PUSD site, so the district will, in time, pay two energy bills each month — one to California PV Energy, the other to either Pasadena Water and Power or California Edison, depending on the location of the site.But ultimately, the district would save around that $4.8 million figure over 25 years, based on an estimated 4 percent rise each year in the cost of energy, according to the staff report.The plan is a scaled-down version of an earlier, similar proposal that was scrapped amid uncertainty over the long-term future of some PUSD sites. That plan had called for solar structures to be built at 28 PUSD sites, but sparked controversy because of the uncertain futures of some district facilities amid school closures.In September, the board announced the closures of  Franklin, Jefferson and Roosevelt elementary schools for the next school year.Then in October, the school board announced the upcoming closure of Wilson Middle School. In March, the board also eliminated 55 full-time positions, including some 44 teachers and four principals, for the 2020-2021 school year.Indeed, one caveat noted in the staff report regarding the solar plan said that, as a result of the agreements, “the ability of the district to sell any one of the 12 sites without the encumbrance of the solar system is restricted. Moreover, closing of a school does not relieve the district of the obligation to continue to purchase energy produced by the site solar system.’’However, in an interview with Pasadena Now, board Vice President Scott Phelps said of the 12 PUSD sites that will receive the solar structures, “We’re pretty darn sure we’re going to be utilizing (long term).’’Those sites are: Altadena Arts Magnet Elementary School; Elliot Arts Magnet Academy; Field Elementary School; Hamilton Elementary School; Jackson STEM Dual Language Academy; John Muir High School Early College Magnet; Madison Elementary School; Pasadena High School; Sierra Madre Elementary School; Sierra Madre Middle School; Webster Elementary School; and Willard Elementary School.“The concerns of the community that were raised when we had the previous deal have been addressed, plus the concerns of the board about not doing too many schools, or schools where we’re not going to be occupying them anymore,’’ Phelps, who voted in favor of the move, told Pasadena Now following the meeting.“It’s a money-saving thing, it’s good for the environment, a lot of school districts do this. It doesn’t cost us up front, it’s just a good idea.“That’s why you saw such an overwhelming vote – we’ve talked about it for months. The community was concerned we were doing too much, (but) we scaled it way down, 12 schools, and only the schools that we’re pretty darn sure we’re going to be utilizing.’’Only board president Patrick Cahalan voted against the plan. He did not respond to an email or phone message from Pasadena Now to detail his reasons.Phelps, meanwhile, said that while the solar plan will not produce an immediate windfall of savings for the district, it still makes good long-term fiscal sense.“It’s true that it takes many years to have it be worthwhile, the payoff – but it’s still a good idea, even if it takes a long time,’’ said Phelps, who added that his own house has been equipped with solar panels “since 2009 or 2008.’’According to the staff report, “Benefits of the agreements include: reducing district dependence upon SCE and PWP … contributing to a cleaner environment … reduced cost of energy … (and) the construction of shade and parking structures.”At the end of the 25-year agreement, according to the staff report, “The district can: 1) exercise an option to extend at pricing negotiated at the time; 2) purchase the systems based upon a formula; or 3) cause the systems to be removed.’’Armenian Academy UpdateIn other news, Dr. Elizabeth J. Blanco, the district’s chief academic officer, gave an update on enrollment progress for the new Armenian Dual Language Immersion Program that’s planned for next year at Blair High School – a plan that was conditionally approved by the board on March 26.Blanco reported to the board that, “at my last check, it was 58 students’’ applying for open enrollment so far.Blanco said she was encouraged by the number of enrollees, given that the district has been marketing the program for only about a week.“This is a week after marketing, so we are hoping that our numbers will increase, because we have the marketing materials ready and are also advertising on some cable stations,’’ Blanco said.One of the conditions of the board’s conditional approval was that the program produce 150 students new to PUSD – a number that would generate some $2 million in additional state revenue as the district wrestles with funding issues from falling enrollment.But Blanco said she was confident there will be an Armenian program in some form next year even if the numbers should fall short.“We meet weekly to discuss option A and option B,’’ she said. “I want to clarify that we intend to have a program. The program may look slightly different if we don’t have the enrollment, but we’re going to offer those opportunities to the families who want to enroll, and we will have a parent orientation prior to the final answer on what the program design is.’’She added: “I think from the overall big scheme, if we take this 500-foot view and think about recapturing some of our community that did not give us an opportunity before to educate their children, it’s going to benefit all of the children in PUSD.’’ Make a comment Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Subscribelast_img read more

Heroes from Limerick presented with national bravery awards

first_imgLOCAL heroes Justin Sherin and Garda Con Horan were among 18 people receiving awards in recognition of outstanding acts of bravery at a national ceremony in Farmleigh House, this Friday. Justin Sherin from Ennis Road was awarded a Certificate of Bravery in recognition of his role in a rescue at Honans Quay in August 2010, while former Garda Con Horan was honoured with a Bronze Medal and a Certificate of Bravery for his part in the rescue of a man from the River Shannon in November 2004.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up On August 2, 2010 Justin Sheerin entered the River Shannon at Honan’s Quay to rescue a friend who was in difficulties.  Justin was able to hold on to his friend until help arrived.  At the time the river was at high tide, fast flowing and the currents were very strong.  There is no doubt but for the swift actions of Justin this incident may have resulted in the loss of a life.  Justin displayed exceptional courage and put his own life at risk by jumping into the river and pulling his friend to safety.Former Garda Sergeant Con Horan and three Garda colleagues responded to a report that a young man had entered the River Shannon at Clancy Strand on November 21st 2004.  When the man was located at the scene one of the Gardaí threw a life buoy to him but he was unresponsive.  Despite strong currents on the river Con Horan swam out to the youngster and with the assistance of his colleague brought the man to safety at the rivers edge.  Former Sergeant Horan administered CPR and first aid to the injured man who after treatment later made a full recovery in hospital.The honours are awarded by Comhairle na Mire Gaile – the Deeds of Bravery Council – which was established in 1947 to provide for suitable recognition by the State of deeds of bravery.  The awards were presented by Ceann Comhairle Seán Barrett, TD who said: “These honours are richly deserved and the awards are a fitting tribute and recognise heroic acts by members of the public as well as members of our emergency services, many of whom without regard for their own personal safety, put their lives on the line to help others.

While directing the accused to furnish a personal bond of ₹25,000 along with a surety of the like amount, the Single Bench of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait noted that Jarwal is no more required for further investigation and trial will take substantial time. The court also took note of the fact that the co-accused in the case, Anil Jarwal, who is Prakash Jarwal’s brother, has already been granted anticipatory bail by the trial court. Prakash Jarwal was arrested by Delhi Police after he was named in the note recovered from a doctor in Delhi who committed suicide. Jarwal has been in custody since May 09. The court observed that: ‘There were no allegations against petitioner in the ‘Suicide Note’ and ‘Diary’ recovered by the police. Thus, it seems, there is no proximity and link in alleged commission of offence. Moreover, regarding allegations of extortion of money for Delhi Assembly Election held in February, 2020 from all tanker owners were not complained by family members of deceased or any other tanker owner, however, made only in ‘Dairy’ and ‘Suicide Note’, some of which are without signature and in different handwriting.’ Senior Advocate Rebecca M John, who appeared for Jarwal, submitted that the alleged suicide note is fabricated and the same is in two different hand writing with different pens. The name of the Petitioner has been written with different pen which does not bear the signature of the deceased on the second portion of the suicide note. Ms John further submitted that the Delhi Jal Board had disengaged 9 water tankers which were running in the name of the deceased and his family members because he was caught red handed in the black marketing of the water tankers in a sting operation. Countering these arguments, the state submitted that all water tankers running in the constituency (Deoli, Khanpur, Sangam Vihar, Tigri) of MLA Prakash Jarwal were pressurized to pay extortion money to MLA Prakash Jarwal. The money was collected by his associate namely Kapil Nagar and Harish Jarwal and others. It was further submitted by the state that there is a nexus of Tanker Mafias run by MLA Prakash Jarwal with the help of his associates Kapil Nagar, Harish Jarwal and others. They have full control over operating the water tankers for supply of water to public in the area of Deoli and Sangam Vihar, because the Petitioner was a Member of Delhi Jal Board. The court took into consideration the fact that the deceased and his family members have been plying water tanker since 2006, but no complaint has ever made for extortion or harassment against petitioner or his alleged associates to any authority. The court further observed that: ‘Regarding allegations of stoppage of payments of deceased and his family, in reply to RTI application made on 27.04.2020, it is categorically stated by DJB that their payments never stopped and around Rs.62 lakhs paid to them from January 2019 to January 2020.’ Prakash Jarwal in this case was represented by Senior Advocate Rebecca M John along with Advocates Ravi Drall, Megha Bahl and Maulshree Pathak.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
