In such unprecedented and uncertain economic conditions, the stock market may be the last place you think of spending your hard-earned cash. But hear me out, I think buying cheap FTSE 100 stocks today, and holding them for the long term, could enable you to build up vast amounts of wealth over time.While I’m acutely aware that share prices may still have further to fall before the market reaches rock bottom, I’m confident that buying cheap FTSE 100 stocks, which offer a wide margin of safety, could set you up financially as the global economy begins to recover.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…After lockdown restrictions are eased, some economic output could relatively soon return to pre-virus levels. If so, I expect some companies’ share prices to rebound significantly over the coming months and years as the recovery gets under way.Accordingly, now could be an ideal time for long-term investors buy some FTSE 100 stocks at bargain prices. FTSE 100 bargainsMy focus in this market crash is on companies that exhibit several key characteristics that give an indication of their financial stability and future prospects. This includes evidence of stable earnings, healthy cash reserves and strong market positions.Speaking of which, mining company Glencore announced last month that most of its operations have seen no material impact as a result of Covid-19. With refinanced credit facilities and strong cash flows, I expect the company to weather the storm comfortably. The shares are down by 36% since mid-February and have a P/E ratio of 11, which indicates good value in my eyes.I think market-leading packaging company DS Smith looks like an oversold stock too. In an update on Monday, the company stated that “trading continues to progress well despite macro-economic uncertainty”. In spite of this, the shares are down by 21% since the beginning of the year and trade at a P/E ratio of around 9.Finally, telecoms giant BT is a stock that looks dirt-cheap to me. The shares have plummeted by 45% in 2020 and are trading well below their historical average, indicating a wide safety margin. With many relying on their broadband throughout the crisis, it’s hard to envisage a fall in demand for core services. As such, BT’s share price may be due a turnaround, which could deliver significant returns.It doesn’t end here though. There are a number of other FTSE 100 stocks that also look like bargains to me at the moment. I’m keeping my eyes on British American Tobacco, Vodafone, Taylor Wimpey and Aviva, to name a few!Worthy long-term investmentsIn my view, investors should be braced for volatility over the short term. However, in the long run, I think buying cheap shares in quality FTSE 100 companies could improve your financial prospects.In every stock market crash, share prices have eventually bounced back. Though it may have taken months, and sometimes years, for them to recover.That’s why I think it’s vital for those investing in the stock market crash to have a long-term horizon. That way, you can ride through the highs and lows, avoiding the danger of trying to time the market.With that in mind, if you’re looking to invest £5,000, I’d recommend buying cheap FTSE 100 stocks today to position yourself ahead of the stock market rebound and build wealth over the long term.

This isn’t meant to be bureaucratic, it’s simply about making sure donations reach the people they’re intended for. This ‘how to’ sheet contains some simple do’s and don’ts to follow when raising funds for good causes.”The free guide can be downloaded from the front page of the Institute of Fundraising’s website. In the wake of the public’s response to the Asian tsunami appeals, the Institute of Fundraising has launched an informal ‘how to’ guide for members of the general public looking to raise money for charitable appeals.The two-page guide covers key issues such as where to collect, using collecting boxes, and counting money. It also directs readers to three of the Institute’s codes of practice relevant to public fundraising: The Handling of Cash Donations, The Management of Static Collection Boxes, and House to House Collections.Andrew Watt, Deputy Chief Executive and Head of Policy and Standards at the Institute of Fundraising, said: “We have been receiving numerous calls from members of the public who are keen to raise funds for one of the tsunami appeals, but haven’t done any fundraising before. It’s great news that so many people have been prompted to get involved, but there is also a real danger that this money could be misappropriated, leaving charities short of vital funds.

Julian Assange’s father and brother to headline #HomeRun4Julian

first_imgPhiladelphia#HomeRun4Julian issued the following news release June 9.John and Gabriel Shipton, the father and brother of award-winning publisher Julian Assange, will visit Philadelphia June 11 to headline a #HomeRun4Julian event near the Liberty Bell. The Shiptons will be joined by Dr. Marc Lamont Hill and representatives of local advocacy groups.Outside the Australian High Commission in London, Britain, on February 22, 2020.Imprisoning truth-tellers like Assange means that all journalists seeking to illuminate the public about information they have a right to know — such as the activities of their government — can be subject to persecution. This sets a grave precedent for the future of journalism as a whole and has provoked a chorus of condemnation from free press and human rights advocates around the globe, including the United Nations, who has ruled Assange “arbitrarily detained” since 2010.A broad coalition of press freedom, antiwar and criminal justice reform groups are standing with the Shiptons in calling on the U.S. government to end its pursuit of Assange. The June 11 event is being endorsed and/or cosponsored by: The Assange Defense Committee, Courage Foundation, United National Antiwar Coalition, International Action Center — Philadelphia, Black Alliance for Peace, Food Not Bombs Solidarity, Mobilization 4 Mumia, Free Maroon Now, Maroon Party for Liberation and Free Ant Smith.The Shiptons hope the tour, sponsored by the Courage Foundation, wakes Americans up to their government’s startling prosecution and prompts the Biden administration to drop all charges against Assange in defense of a free press. “For the first time in American history, a journalist has been indicted for publishing truthful information in the public interest. That’s why press and human rights groups around the world are in agreement that this is an existential threat to investigative reporting.” — Nathan Fuller, director of the Courage Foundation“Philadelphia is an important stop on our tour, given its historical significance. We are looking forward to meeting near the Liberty Bell and speaking with local activists and media.” — John Shipton, father of Julian Assange“My brother Julian Assange has effectively been a prisoner for over a decade because he published evidence of war crimes. The U.S. government wants to make an example out of him to deter journalists and whistleblowers.” — Gabriel Shipton, brother of Julian AssangeTour information will be updated regularly at HomeRunForJulian.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

HR directors divided over the ‘seat on the board’ debate

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article HR directors divided over the ‘seat on the board’ debateOn 7 Jan 2003 in Personnel Today TheUK’s HR directors remain split over whether they need to sit on theircompanies’ boards to exert the most influence on the business.Thisissue sparked more debate than any other among the 120 delegates and speakersat the IoD’s Directors’ Forum.IoDchairman Christopher Beale said he was in no doubt that HR belonged on theboard. “IfHR is ultimately not represented, yet the other disciplines are around thetable, does it not leave the impression that HR is still a supportfunction?” he asked.AlexWilson, BT’s group HR director, disagreed. A board seat does not mean”automatic influence or impact” for HR on the business, he argued. “Ibelieve the HR professional needs to report directly to the key decision-maker,not through another function, and should sit where the decisions are made, suchas on an executive committee,” he said. Toomuch energy is being spent on worrying about HR’s board role, he added. “Ithink we should stop going on about it as a function.”SpeakersTony Ward, BAA’s group services director, and Vance Kearney, Oracle HRvice-president, Europe, also took the view that they preferred an executivecommittee seat to the board for HR.Kearneynoted that he did not want to have to attend “more boring meetings”.
