It could enable an investor to capitalise on low valuations, as well as a likely stock market rally, in the coming years.As such, now could be the right time to focus on unpopular sectors that are more likely to contain cheap stocks. They could see improving operating conditions as the world economy recovers from its present crisis.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…Buying dirt-cheap shares before a stock market rallyThe stock market has made gains in recent months, but it continues to trade below its record high. Moreover, many industries are facing tough operating conditions in the short run that are causing weak investor sentiment. They could provide opportunities to buy shares when they trade at low prices ahead of a likely stock market rally.The track record of indexes such as the FTSE 100 shows that they have always bounced back from low points to produce new all-time highs. This outcome is likely to be repeated in the coming years. More industries will return to normality following coronavirus and stimulus action undertaken by policymakers will take full effect.Therefore, buying shares that are currently undervalued could be a sound means of capitalising on the stock market’s long-term growth potential. They may have greater scope for capital gains in a stock market rally than shares that have already recovered from the 2020 market crash.Focusing on quality, as well as priceOf course, it is important to focus on the quality of companies alongside their price. Some businesses may be left behind in a long-term stock market rally. That includes those with poor strategies that are too rigid in a fluid economic environment, or lacking the financial means to change their structures in response to shifting consumer tastes.Therefore, it is important to consider company fundamentals as well as their prices. In doing so, it is possible to unearth high-quality businesses that trade at prices that are below their intrinsic values. They may be the stocks that offer the greatest growth potential, and are the most attractive buying opportunities of today.Making a millionIt is possible to outperform indexes such as the FTSE 100 in a long-term stock market rally. How? Through buying dirt-cheap shares. But simply matching the return of equity markets could lead to a seven-figure portfolio.For example, the FTSE 100 has produced total returns of around 8% per annum since inception. Assuming the same return on a £500 monthly investment would produce a portfolio valued at £1m within 34 years. But buying high-quality companies at low prices could really pay off. It is possible to earn a higher return that way and reduce the time it takes to make a million.

Last September, on a damp, dreary Friday night in Salt Lake City, Clay Helton squeezed into a tiny room in the bowels of Rice-Eccles Stadium after a devastating, nail-biting loss — one that dropped his team to 1-3 — and answered questions from the media.The head coach lamented how the win slipped away, how field conditions impacted the final score, how he thought this would be the game that would key a turnaround for USC. Instead, the Trojans were off to their worst start since 2001, and whispers arose regarding Helton’s uncertain job security.“I’m heartbroken for [our players],” Helton said after the game.If that moment was the nadir of Helton’s tenure, then everything since has been a meteoric rise toward the zenith, and it’s a meteor that shows no signs of slowing. He made the right gamble in starting redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold, won eight straight games to finish the regular season, claimed a Rose Bowl victory in one of the most dramatic finishes in the bowl’s history and ended the season ranked No. 3 in the country. Now, a month later, Helton signed an absolute killer of a recruiting class on National Signing Day on Wednesday that fanned the flames on the three words that we’ve been dying to hear for years: USC is back.Entering the day, the Trojans had their eyes on no fewer than eight prized recruits. They landed six of them. To put it into perspective, that’s like hitting no traffic and six of eight green lights driving down Figueroa during rush hour.From four-star linebacker Levi Jones picking USC over both Florida and Florida State in epic, troll-like fashion (seriously, Google this) in the early morning to the afternoon commitments from Hawkins High product Joseph Lewis — ESPN’s No. 1-ranked wide receiver — and versatile four-star athlete Greg Johnson, the good news kept pouring in.In between, the Trojans corralled three more four-star commits in defensive tackle Jay Tufele, offensive tackle Austin Jackson and tight end Josh Falo, also ranked No. 1 in his position by ESPN. And all 19 of their previous commitments stayed onboard to seal up a strong recruiting class at nearly every position, enough to push it into the top five of most national rankings by the end of the day.It’s clear that this class — which features 14 players in ESPN’s Top 300 — will address positions of need for the Trojans. They’ll get Tufele and fellow four-star recruit Marlon Tuipulotu to shore up a defensive line weakened by the graduation of veteran defensive anchor Stevie Tu’ikolovatu and the departure of Noah Jefferson. They’ll add four offensive linemen — three of whom are four stars — to counter Zach Banner, Chad Wheeler and Damien Mama leaving the offensive front. They’ll bring in a couple of imposing wide receivers in Lewis and Randal Grimes, who will help step in the shoes of four departing “big men” — in Helton’s words — in JuJu Smith-Schuster, Darreus Rogers, De’Quan Hampton and Isaac Whitney. They’ll have an Adoree’ Jackson-like player in Johnson, who is 247Sports’ No. 1-ranked athlete in the class, able to play running back, wide receiver and defensive back. And they’ll even have a potential Sam Darnold Part II in four-star quarterback Jack Sears, who went to the same high school as Darnold in San Clemente.The Trojans racked up so many top-notch recruits on Wednesday that it triggered my Golden State Warriors-fan guilt — you know, the tiniest bit of pity that you feel when all the best players wind up on your team. After all, the greatest game plan to beat the top players is to, well, just have them play for your team.“They’re either going to be on your team, or you’re going to play against them,” Helton said. “The guys that we signed today I don’t want to play against. They’re talented.”While it’s true that USC will always draw talented recruits purely from its brand name — the Trojans still managed the 13th-ranked recruiting class in 2013 despite losing scholarships because of NCAA sanctions — Helton’s impressive haul speaks to more than just the football program’s legacy.It speaks to his ability to combine the glamour of USC with his own recruiting skills to convince talented players to don the Cardinal and Gold. It shows that he is far more than just a coach riding the coattails of a phenom quarterback to success. And it proves the benefits of tapping a long-time assistant in Helton to the head coaching position rather than hiring from outside the team -— because Helton used the relationships he developed during his time as an assistant coach to bring in this cream-of-the-crop recruiting class.“There’s basically three ways how you win a kid’s trust. One, your character. Two, your competency in your knowledge and how you can develop them. And three, let them know that you care about them,” Helton said, pointing out that USC had followed 21 of its 23 commits over a long period of time. “That takes time. To be able to be here for a number of years and build that relationship, that definitely helps.”With that, USC will enter spring practice with a very positive vibe and a head coach who is proving himself worthy of a prestigious position and winning over critics simply by … winning. Because when you win, people notice. But when you’re USC and you win, people really take notice — specifically, high school seniors making college decisions.When asked if the Rose Bowl win swayed some recruits toward the Trojans, Helton didn’t disagree.“It showed a level of consistency that I thought was important,” Helton said, “and I know it was important to the kids out there [watching] in their homes.”Winning: It cures everything, and it makes that heartbreaking defeat on a rainy Friday night in Utah seem like a really, really long time ago.Eric He is a sophomore studying print and digital journalism.

“We are grateful to Pat for all that he has done,” Englert wrote in the statement. “I wish Pat, Betsy, and their wonderful family every success in their new phase of their lives. But wherever they go, they will always be members of the Temple family.” Temple University Athletic Director Patrick Kraft is leaving Temple to become the Athletic Director at Boston College in Newton, Massachusetts. Kraft spent five years as Temple’s athletic director after serving as the Deputy Director of Athletics for two years. Temple University President Richard Englert wrote he was “sadden” by the news of Kraft leaving for Boston College in a statement. In 2015, Kraft oversaw Temple football when they started the season 7-0 and played host to ESPN’s College Gameday when they matched up against Notre Dame University at Lincoln Financial Field. The game sold out and was ABC’s highest-rated college football game in Philadelphia. During his tenure, Temple’s athletes earned a number of academic achievements. Student-athletes had a record nine consecutive semesters with a combined GPA of 3.10 or higher and a record 15 straight semesters above at least a 3.0. “Pat has been extraordinarily successful in his seven years here and Temple athletics has been run with enthusiasm and integrity, making us all proud Owls,” he wrote. Kraft agreed to stay with Temple through July 1 to help with the transition to a new Athletic Director, according to the statement.

(Image: Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory)• Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory+27 11 547 [email protected] Central StreetHoughton2198South AfricaLorraine KearneyThe challenges of social integration were increasing, and it was essential to update democracy. “We must take on the challenges of the future, not just consolidate our wins.”Chilean President Michelle Bachelet expressed these sentiments in delivering the 12th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture, in the City Hall, Cape Town, on Women’s Day – 9 August.The lecture was particularly significant as it was from the City Hall that Mandela first addressed South Africans and the world following his release from prison on 11 February 1990. It was also the place from where he first spoke to South Africans as their president on 9 May 1994. And it was also particularly poignant as it was the first annual lecture to be given since his death on 5 December last year – a fact mentioned by more than one speaker.Women’s Day, a national public holiday, commemorates the day in 1956 when about 20 000 women of all races marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to demand that women not be required to carry passes.Watch Chilean President Michelle Bachelet deliver the 12th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture:The topic of Bachelet’s lecture was “Building social cohesion through active citizenship”. She also focused on education and community participation in democracy.She paid tribute to Mandela, saying his life had been based on a “profound certainty that there are no differences that justify discrimination, violence, abuse or oppression”. He had shown that the only viable path was one of cohesion and unity. She also honoured Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, one of the many dignitaries in the audience, for having convened the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and for the similar process in Chile.It was one of several historical similarities between the two countries on their path to democracy that she listed: “It can be said we share a common wound, a common pain, but we also share a sense of common pride.”In speaking about democracy today, Bachelet said: “Economic growth and reducing inequality are essential, but are not enough. The growing new middle class brings new challenges that pose new tasks. Confidence in institutions is weakening – this is a global trend. This puts at risk our democracy… Society has changed, the world has changed, and people around the world are asking more of their governments,” she said. “Today, legitimacy and justice are more than just legality. More and better democratic policies of inclusion are needed.”And to get there, changes must be driven by society. Representative democracy was no longer enough; people were now demanding participation. “But to take part requires more than just voting. This is key to modern democracy.” Indeed this was the core of her lecture: society was opening spaces and forums where these new demands could be reflected. It was time for structural changes, but there was no magic recipe for this. “But the wrong path is denying citizens their participation.”Bachelet pointed out that sub-Saharan Africa had experience strong economic growth in recent years, but half the population still lived on less than $1.25 a day “This strong economic performance is not filtering down. It is the same in Latin America and the Caribbean. There is some encouragement in the growth of the middle class, but the inequality gap is high and is growing.“We need more equal distribution of wealth.” To get there, the public sector needed strengthening.Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Michelle Bachelet and Sello Hatang at the lecture. (Image: Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory)Gender equalityIn building a socially cohesive, democratic society in which all people participate meaningfully, there needs to be equality between the sexes. Yet, Bachelet pointed out, cultural, economic, social and political discrimination against women remained one of the “most scandalous unequal situations on the planet”. Six out of 10 poor people were women; 75% of women could not get a bank loan because they were in unstable or unpaid jobs. Sexism was rife and there was a lack of representation in business.She spoke about policies being set up in Chile to assist women. “[Equality] needs to be promoted in every country. We need to make gender equality a state objective.” But to do so “requires us to rethink our ways of cultural identity. We need to ask: ‘How can we make living together possible?’ It is a complex task in permanent evolution.”Chile, and the world, had a lot to learn from South Africa, and from Mandela’s attempts to build a unified nation. To get there, structural changes were needed – and effort had to be made to make cultural changes. “Above all, we must build a culture that allows us to recognise our self in others. To do this requires active citizens … Chile is proposing that people take this responsibility to grow social cohesion.”Importance of educationBachelet also spoke about improving education, as a crucial tool to ensure a democratic, socially inclusive nation. The challenge was “not only access to education, but also quality education”. Structural changes were needed to achieve this; it should be an economic, social and political goal simultaneously.She quoted Mandela, saying that education was the most powerful weapon to change the world, but added that action was needed to reach this goal. Non-negotiable was passion, the ability to listen and the active participation of citizens who could also listen to constructive criticism.In ending her lecture, Bachelet referred to South Africa as the cradle of humanity: “In this land that is the birthplace of the human species, we can dream of a new humanity… We have hope to build a common future.”At the press conference after the lecture, she said: “Mandela has been the leader who inspired me all my life. He has taught us so much.”Returning to education, she announced that in 2015, Chile would launch 50 Nelson Mandela scholarships for post-graduate students from Africa to attend Chilean universities. A statue of Mandela would also be commissioned for a public park in Santiago, and Chile planned to convene a “conversation” involving South Africa, Chile and other Latin American countries going through a transitional justice process so that they could learn from each other.Her lecture was well-received by an audience that consisted of dignitaries, activists and ordinary folk, as well as Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandla Mandela, Mandela’s grandson. The Nelson Mandela Foundation website reported that he found the lecture to be insightful. Bachelet made it clear that being an elected official meant you had to continue to speak on behalf of people, the Mvezo chief said.“This is to ensure service delivery and to be a true reflection of what is happening in the country… We must strive to make a better world. Her excellency has called us back to the drawing board, and has raised questions: have we done enough to recognise indigenous people? Is there still a role in post-apartheid South Africa for traditional leaders?” he said.Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who delivered the Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in 2004, was also upbeat as he walked out of the hall. Showing the victory sign, he said the lecture had been “wonderful to listen to”, and Bachelet had been “fantastic”.
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts jolie odell In November, we told you about a move in the UK to monitor P2P sharing and permanently ban users who infringed on copyright from using the Internet.In our reporting on P2P issues, it’s rare these days to get wind of some good news; today, we’ve learned that this plan to ban would not, in fact, apply to most file-sharing fiends. After one ISP stood up to the government’s proposals by circulating a petition, the government responded favorably, saying, “We are not requiring ISPs to monitor for unlawful file-sharing. Nor are we proposing that ISPs look at what users download in order to combat piracy… We will not terminate the accounts of infringers.”The fear, uncertainty and doubt about the UK’s policy on illegal file-sharing stems from the introduction of the Digital Economy Bill, published on November 20, 2009. The bill “sets out in detail our proposed legislation to tackle on-line copyright infringement, including unlawful peer to peer file-sharing,” according to the government.However, UK ISP TalkTalk vigorously objected to some of the measures laid out in the bill and drafted and circulated an e-petition to abandon the idea that illegal P2P file-sharing should result in a permanent ban from the Internet for guilty users.“If citizens are innocent until proven guilty,” the petition reads, “ISPs would be forced to monitor internet usage to ensure that no copyrighted material is being transferred. This flagrant disregard for privacy is comparable to forcing the Post Office to search through parcels for photocopied documents or mixtape cassettes. Such requirements would place enormous strain on ISPs whilst failing to prevent the distribution of copyrighted material…“Who is punished in the case of shared family connections? The increasing role of the Internet in access to society should not be underestimated. Cutting off households deprives families of education, government services and freedom of speech. We do not see this as a fitting punishment, nor do we believe the breaches in privacy involved to be justifiable under copyright law.” A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#p2p#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market The government’s full response states that officials are working with rights holders and media companies to find a balanced and equitable solution to illegal file-sharing – one that includes attractive, legal options for end users to access content, as well.The Digital Economy Bill will require ISPs to notify users whose accounts had been flagged by a copyright holder as having been used for illegal file-sharing. “In the cases of the most serious infringers,” reads the response, “if a rights holder obtains a court order, the ISP would have to provide information so that the rights holder can take targeted court action.” As a last resort, the Bill provides for ISPs’ taking technical measures to stop illegal downloading, ranging from bandwidth restriction, daily downloading limits and temporary Internet account suspension.All in all, the government hopes to see a 70 percent reduction in illegal P2P downloads.It’ll be interesting to see how various national laws and regulations hold up if something like ACTA ends up being passed. In a nutshell, a U.S.-drafted chapter of this treaty on Internet use would require ISPs to police user-generated content, to cut off Internet access for copyright violators and to remove content that is accused of copyright violation without any proof of actual violation – a far cry from the more lenient proposals we’re reading from the UK.Let us know what you think in the comments.

Despite global efforts to ensure that women deliver with skilled birth attendants and have access to conventional uterotonics for PPH prevention, 60% of births in low resource countries occur outside health facilities without a skilled attendant. In Pakistan, 65% of births occur at home and 27% of maternal deaths are attributed to PPH. Today’s talk summarizes results from a randomized controlled trial testing the impact of post-partum administration of 600 mcg oral misoprostol on PPH by Pakistani trained traditional birth attendants. The data show a 24% reduction in PPH among women given misoprostol after delivery. These results, in conjunction with other published reports on misoprostol for PPH prevention, support the drug’s effectiveness in preventing PPH in places where oxytocin is either not available or not feasible. We also hope that these results will bolster WHO support to list misoprostol for its specific PPH prevention indication on its Essential Medicines List.Jill Durocher will share results from this newly published trial and discuss its implication for programs introducing misoprostol for PPH prevention. Jennifer Blum will be on hand to discuss how this relates to Gynuity’s current portfolio of work on misoprostol for the prevention and treatment of PPH globally.Please join USAID and Gynuity Health Projects for this presentation—newly published in BJOG.

A ring isn’t the only thing Urban Meyer will be getting as a result of Ohio State’s national championship. The Buckeyes’ coach will also be getting a tattoo. Prior to his team’s game against Oregon in the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Meyer promised his players he would get inked up if they beat the Ducks. They did, 42-20, so the 50-year-old will be visiting a tattoo parlor at some point in the near future. Friday evening, Meyer made an appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman. He talked about the tattoo he’ll be getting at about the 1:05 mark. While a Block O on top of his head seems like an interesting idea, odds are Meyer will probably opt to get something on his chest or back like Rick Pitino.
