The FTSE 100 is down today as are stock markets in Germany, Italy, Spain, and France. In the US, the futures market points to a lower opening for the S&P 500.Markets in Europe and the US had, until recently, barely registered the novel coronavirus that broke out in China in December 2019. It took a profit warning from Apple, whose iPhones are both produced and purchased in high numbers in China, to get a reaction.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…The rate at which new cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, are being reported in China appears to be falling. The peak number of new cases per day in Hubei, the epicentre of the outbreak, was 3,458, and occurred around 17 February. Now, around 712 new cases are recorded each day.While there are signs that the outbreak has peaked in China, multiple other countries are reporting COVID-19 cases at an increasing rate. Fears of a global pandemic have hit the markets in earnest now.Economic behaviourIf you look at the top fallers in the FTSE 100 today, it’s airlines and travel companies in the top three, but other industries and sectors are feeling the effects.Markets are falling because people are changing their behaviour, or having it changed for them. Stocks are assets. The prices of assets fall as the present values of their expected cash flows shrink. As an example, airlines and travel companies generate smaller cash flows when people are not travelling as much as normal.Until the rate of new daily cases outside China starts to level off, I am expecting continued volatility in the FTSE 100. Because so many FTSE 100 firms have international revenues tied to the global economy, the effects of the outbreak will linger on in the quarterly, half-yearly, and annual reports of companies.Patience and faithToday, my portfolio is down. What have I done about it? Nothing.But don’t listen to me – listen to Warren Buffett who views stocks as part ownership in businesses. Today, in an interview with CNBC, Buffett reminded listeners not to “Buy or sell your business on today’s headlines“.Yes, the coronavirus will affect the global economy. Yes, the UK stock markets are down and they may fall more, but I have complete confidence they will recover. What I nor anyone else can predict is when.Looking aheadFor a long-term investor with a diverse portfolio of quality companies, that have the financial strength to continue through bad times, what will selling now achieve, other than a capital loss? If the company pays dividends, the investor loses out on income also.If a company’s fundamentals look good for the next five, 10, or 20 years, and the dividend yield looks attractive right now, should someone invest now? After all, the price could fall further. But nobody can know for sure. What is true is that the shares of some quality UK companies are cheaper now than they were last week.Long-term investors should ignore the headlines and the right now, and focus on the future.

Toulon have done the double this season, but can the star-studded side continue their success without Jonny Wilkinson? THE QUESTION is already being asked in the French press: how long will Toulon’s dominance of European rugby last? One of their former stars Eric Champ, a formidable flanker for France in the 1980s, described the Mediterranean club as “invincible” in the wake of their 18-10 defeat of Castres in Saturday’s Top 14 final.That victory – their first domestic title in 22 years – made Toulon only the second French club in history to win a domestic and European double. Toulouse did it in 1996, although it was a Heineken Cup without England after their clubs had boycotted the inaugural season. Without wishing to take anything away from Toulouse, beating Farul Constanta of Romania, Treviso, Swansea and Cardiff is hardly the same as Toulon’s victories this season over Cardiff Blues, Exeter, Glasgow, Leinster, Munster and Saracens. In addition, Toulon are the only the third club to win back-to-back Heineken titles, emulating Leicester and Leinster.Toulon’s double triumph bears comparison with what the Tigers achieved in winning European and domestic crowns in 2001 (and again in 2002), and Wasps’ glory season of 2004 when the Londoners did the double.Figurehead: Wasps have struggled since Lawrence Dallaglio hung up his boots back in 2008Of those two English clubs it’s the fate of Wasps that might serve as a warning to Toulon. Though they never managed another double, Wasps won their second Heineken title in 2007 and the following season lifted the Premiership trophy in what was Lawrence Dallaglio’s final act as a player.Wasps have never been the same club since Dallaglio retired. Like Jonny Wilkinson, the England No 8 was one of those rare rugby figures capable of inspiring team-mates and intimidating opponents by his mere presence.Two more contrasting characters you couldn’t have wished to meet: Dallaglio the extrovert, as comfortable in the limelight as in the back row, and Wilkinson the introvert who dodged the celebrity circuit as if it were an opposition flanker. Yet in their different ways the pair symbolised what their clubs were about. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Let’s celebrate: Jonny Wilkinson and his Toulon team-mates with the Bouclier de Brennus When Dallaglio retired Wasps appointed Raphael Ibanez as captain, but an injury early on in the 2008-09 season forced the charismatic Frenchman to follow Dallaglio into retirement.Wasps still had a side oozing great talent and strong characters, but with no Dallaglio to keep egos in check cracks began to appear in the squad. Danny Cipriani and Josh Lewsey came to blows on the training ground and Wasps finished the season in seventh spot. In fact, since the end of the Dallaglio era Wasps have never finished in the top four of the Premiership. Could something similar happen to Toulon?Best of friends: Jonny Wilkinson, Matt Giteau and Mathieu Bastareaud in action against CastresThey’ve made several big signings to compensate for the loss of Wilkinson, world-class players such as Leigh Halfpenny and James O’Connor, but their focus will be divided between club and country in what is a World Cup year next season. And anyway a big name is no guarantee of success. Toulon know that from Victor Matfield and Gethin Jenkins. It’s commitment as much as quality, but also something that no one can ever predict – chemistry. Who could have guessed that Wilkinson, Giteau, Bastareaud, Botha and Hayman would bond as they did, mates as well as team-mates.Wasps didn’t become a bad team overnight in 2008, and nor will Toulon next season, but the retirement of Wilkinson will give hope to their rivals. ‘Sir Jonny’ won Toulon the Bouclier de Brennus on Saturday but has he lost them their fear factor?

Dec. 3 — Detroit residents, community activists, city retirees and workers from many unions, including teachers, firefighters and others, demonstrated outside the Federal courthouse this morning in downtown Detroit. Inside, federal Bankruptcy Court Judge Steven Rhodes read his decision approving Chapter 9 bankruptcy proceedings for the emergency-management-run city.Rhodes overrode the Michigan constitution, which says no law can be enacted which impairs or diminishes accrued pensions, when he declared pension funds fair game for paying the banks. During the bankruptcy eligibility trial, a representative of Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr testified that retirees would be treated like every other unsecured creditor — and be offered 16 cents on the dollar.Activists are predicting that other cities in the U.S. will follow Detroit’s lead and declare bankruptcy in order to rob pensioners of their hard-earned retirement funds.A major demonstration will be held outside the court on Dec. 17 as Rhodes begins a three-day trial to determine if a $250 million giveaway to Bank of America and United Bank of Switzerland will go forward.

In fact, it mysteriously multiplied.Opposition from the influential TCU community put politicians under pressure and brought lots of unwanted attention to the reality of urban drilling in the city. ReddIt printThe green field slopes gently down to a neatly kept garden.Small vegetable planters line the garden’s fence, and leafy greens are beginning to emerge. Through the cast-iron gate, a dirt path winds through the canopy of trees and patches of native Texan bushes, flowers and cacti.Fort Worth is in its fifth year of drought, with water restrictions limiting the resource’s use. The Alice Carlson Outdoor Learning Environment relies on an underground piping system, which allows the garden to thrive entirely without city water, said Sharon Chastain, the garden coordinator.The garden demonstrates how to use rainwater harvesting techniques and native plant life to create a sustainable garden.Pipelines gather rainwater from the gymnasium roof and collect condensation from the building’s air conditioning unit. This water travels downhill through underground pipes where it is stored in an aboveground tank. The water then feeds drip irrigation systems which water the garden, Chastain said.Every inch of water from the roof creates about 1,000 gallons of water, said Jim Nelson, the designer of the rainwater harvesting system.In 1996, Alice Carlson asked its students what they would like to do with the unused tennis courts in the school’s backyard. The students suggested several options, including a giant swimming pool.After narrowing it down to more practical options, the school built the Outdoor Learning Environment in 1997, Chastain said.The garden originally got a construction grant from the Rainwater Charitable Foundation that kick-started the garden’s construction. Since then, various grants and an annual donation from the Texas Master Gardeners Association have provided the money to maintain and improve the Outdoor Learning Environment.Alice Carlson created the garden as a useful space the kids could utilize for learning, Chastain said. The Outdoor Learning Environment hosts science projects, plant observation, fossil digging and many other interactive class activities.Through the Outdoor Learning Environment, students of Alice Carlson learn the importance of conserving water, Chastain said. She said they monitor the vegetable gardens and decide when it’s time to hand water.The Outdoor Learning Environment consists of two levels. The first hosts multiple vegetable gardens and a living-roof shed covered by native grasses and cacti, Chastain said.The lower lever is broken into sections, each representing a different section of the Texan ecosystem:The Woodlands, where trees provide a shady canopy for benches.The Rain Garden, where the more water-loving East Texas plants feed on the excess rainwater that gathers in a small pond.The Prairie, a large patch of hardy Buffalo Grass.The Desert, consisting of plants that don’t require any water outside of rainfall.The Butterfly Garden, where a mixture of native and imported plants attract a myriad of butterflies to the Outdoor Learning Environment.An arroyo runs diagonally across the garden, channeling rainwater towards gutters that distribute the water. Chastain said the arroyo runs like a river during rainfall, providing the Outdoor Learning Environment with water for weeks to come.Near the entrance stands a small waterfall. A pump recirculates the water, allowing it to lose less water to evaporation than a stream would.Seeing the conservation systems at work in the garden teaches students that water is not an endless commodity and must be protected, said Julie Tabor, a garden volunteer since 2012.On a Monday morning earlier this month, a fourth grade class trekked across the lawn to visit volunteers working in the garden. The students asked volunteers when to plant potatoes, what type of fertilizer to use and what other vegetables they could plant in the spring.Every fall and spring, students plant and observe vegetable seeds as a science project. In the spring, the children harvest the vegetables and donate them to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.Students visit the garden twice a week on average and almost every day when planting a new crop.“Some kids even ask to work in the garden during recess time,” Debbie Gerwick, a fourth grade teacher, said. “I think that says a lot about how much they enjoy their time in the garden.”While using a miniature garden hoe to work fertilizer into the soil, fourth-grader Zoey Aguayo said visiting the garden is the highlight of her day.“I love planting the vegetables,” Aguayo said. “It makes me happy to take care of them and see them grow.”“It’s nice to get outside and feel the dirt in your hands,” Tabor said, “and to make a difference while doing that.”Volunteers from the Sheriff’s Department currently provide the majority of labor for large projects in the garden. They meet every Monday and Thursday at 8:30 a.m.Chastain said she hopes to recruit more help from local neighborhoods and organizations to improve the Outdoor Learning Environment.

IndiaAsia – Pacific News In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival News February 23, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government launches new broad offensive on electronic communications IndiaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the latest demands being made by India’s security agencies with the aim of reinforcing surveillance of Internet use. Email service providers such as Yahoo! and Gmail are now being instructed to route all emails accessed in India through servers based there to facilitate monitoring.The Indian media report that, during a meeting in the office of the home secretary (interior minister), the department of information technology was told to notify all email service providers of the new directive. According to an article in The Times of India yesterday, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) has also told department of telecommunications to ask mobile phone companies to set up mechanisms for monitoring Internet usage on mobile phones.“These are the latest of many abusive demands that the Indian authorities have made on Internet companies and service providers,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The government’s desire to step surveillance of telecommunications has become obsessive since the 2008 Mumbai bombings. It should not forget the fundamental right to confidentiality and privacy. These plans must be dropped and the harassment of Internet companies must stop.”For the moment, Yahoo! routes emails via servers based in India only if they involve email accounts registered in India. Emails sent from accounts registered abroad (addresses ending in yahoo.com or yahoo.fr, for example) are routed through servers based abroad even if they are accessed in India. This means that the Indian security services cannot inspect them without first making a formal request to the government of the country concerned.It has also emerged that, at a meeting in January, security agencies told the department of telecommunications to provide them with a list of all the Indian companies using BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), a highly encrypted corporate email service provided by the BlackBerry smartphone’s Canadian manufacturer, Research in Motion.The security agencies apparently intend to contact each of these companies one by one and ask them to surrender the company encryption key, without which BES emails cannot be accessed.According to The Times of India, Research in Motion has finally established a server in India that will allow Indian law enforcement agencies to intercept messages sent by the BlackBerry instant messaging service, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), in real-time.India fell nine places to 131st of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 world press freedom index compiled by Reporters Without Borders.
