City watchdog the FSA is due to give its latest thinking on HFT tomorrow.

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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Stock market crash: I’d start investing £500 per month in FTSE 100 shares to retire early Image source: Getty Images. Starting to invest in FTSE 100 stocks after the market crash may seem to be an illogical move. After all, the economic consequences of coronavirus are unclear. They could lead to a severe economic downturn – and even a recession.However, by investing £500, or any other amount, per month in a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares you could improve your retirement prospects. The index currently appears to offer excellent value for money, as well as recovery potential over the long run.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…Time horizonIn the near term, investing in FTSE 100 shares could lead to paper losses. Although the index has fallen significantly since the start of the year, and investors appear to have factored in a challenging economic outlook, things could worsen for the FTSE 100 before they improve.However, many people who are seeking to build a nest egg for their retirement are likely to have a long-term time horizon. In other words, buying stocks while they trade at low prices is likely to improve their financial outlook. They will be able to purchase high-quality companies while they offer wide margins of safety, and benefit from their likely recovery in the coming years.Recovery potentialIn terms of the chances of a recovery, the FTSE 100’s track record suggests that it is very likely. The world economy has experienced a number of significant recessions in the past that have caused the index to experience severe declines. In some cases, the FTSE 100 has dropped by over 50% in a matter of months, as investors have priced in recessions, and the potential for depressions.Despite this, the stock market has always been able to recover from its lows to post successful recoveries. For example, it was able to make new record highs in the years following the global financial crisis. As such, it seems likely that it will repeat this pattern. Through buying shares today and holding them for the long run, you can benefit from the index’s likely turnaround.Buying opportunitiesPurchasing FTSE 100 shares is now easier, and cheaper, than ever. Investors can buy £500 of shares on a monthly basis through features such as regular investments. They are available at a wide range of online sharedealing providers, and reduce the cost of each trade to as little as £1.50 in some cases.Accounts such as Stocks and Shares ISAs help to make investing in FTSE 100 shares more tax efficient. There is no tax levied on any amounts invested/gained within an ISA, while there are also no limits on withdrawals. This makes them highly flexible and appealing to a variety of individuals at different stages in their lives.Although the FTSE 100 is likely to experience further downturns this year, and in the coming years, its overall trajectory in the long run is likely to be upwards. Therefore, starting to invest for your retirement now could be a highly profitable move.

Se ha producido un cambio radical en los Estados Unidos. Por fin, las encuestas muestran que el socialismo ya no es la “palabra sucia” que era una vez, incluso cuando decir públicamente que eras socialista, y especialmente comunista, podría significar ser condenado al ostracismo, atacado, despedido de tu trabajo, incluso encarcelado.No desde los días del líder sindical Eugene Debs (1855-1926), a un socialista le ha ido bien en las elecciones presidenciales de Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, el candidato Bernie Sanders, que se identifica a sí mismo como un “socialista democrático”, está creciendo en popularidad.Supongamos que Sanders pueda ganar la presidencia. Sus posibilidades son ciertamente escasas, dada la alineación de los patrocinadores más ricos de ambas partes contra él, pero nada es imposible. Muchos socialdemócratas como Sanders han sido elegidos para altos cargos en Europa. Han extraído algunas concesiones de las clases dominantes.Pero eso no es socialismo.Tampoco Sanders se postula para la nominación de un partido que profesa socialismo. El Partido Demócrata ciertamente nunca lo ha respaldado. Por el contrario, ha coexistido con el Partido Republicano como dos partidos de la clase dominante sólidamente en el campo del capitalismo.El Partido Demócrata también ha tenido éxito en la venta de la guerra imperialista al pueblo, haciendo que luche y muera no por la “democracia” sino por el dominio corporativo de los recursos del mundo.Durante décadas, el Partido Demócrata también fue el partido de la segregación del sur. Pero en el norte, especialmente con la administración Franklin Delano Roosevelt, el partido se asoció con programas gubernamentales para aliviar la pobreza.Lo que ha cambiado no es el liderazgo de los dos partidos capitalistas o su compromiso con el sistema de ganancias, sino el sentimiento de los votantes. Muchos, especialmente los jóvenes, se han dado cuenta de que el capitalismo es responsable de la alucinante brecha de riqueza en este país. Ellos quieren un cambio.Sanders representa el tipo de cambio llevado a cabo por los partidos socialdemócratas en otros lugares que han traído reformas bienvenidas, pero que han coexistido con la propiedad capitalista y el control de los medios de producción.Es esta propiedad y control lo que les da a los capitalistas su poder, no solo sobre la vida económica sino también sobre la política del país.¿Qué es el socialismo?Lo que plantea la pregunta, ¿en qué se basa el socialismo real? En primer lugar, una revisión básica de la economía para lograr el socialismo solo puede comenzar cuando la clase trabajadora flexiona su poder y toma los medios de producción y los utiliza para resolver los problemas de pobreza y desigualdad.No hay razón para la pobreza en este país, ni en el mundo. El nivel de productividad capaz de satisfacer las necesidades de las personas ahora es asombroso. Un verdadero gobierno obrero podría eliminar inmediatamente la pobreza expropiando la propiedad de los ricos y planificando el desarrollo económico basado en la necesidad humana, no en las ganancias.¿Por qué no debería la clase trabajadora global en su conjunto y controlar los medios de producción? Todo está construido por trabajadores en primer lugar.¿Por qué no deberían refugiarse las personas sin hogar en todas las mansiones y condominios vacíos que están desiertos la mayor parte del tiempo, mientras sus adinerados propietarios viajan por todo el mundo?¿Por qué no debería utilizarse la abundancia excesiva de alimentos producidos en este país para acabar con el hambre mundial, de una vez por todas?¿Por qué no se debería garantizar a todos los jóvenes una cobertura de ingresos y salud al estudiar cómo hacer avanzar a la sociedad de manera sostenible?Sin embargo, en un momento en que el planeta mismo se ve envuelto en una crisis creada por el capitalismo desenfrenado, las viejas instituciones políticas establecidas por el dinero de los multimillonarios todavía dictan la política. Esto no puede durar.Workers World/MundoObrero está comprometido a construir un movimiento revolucionario para el socialismo. Las elecciones pueden ser un barómetro de cambio de opinión, pero el movimiento no termina el día de las elecciones. Crece con cada lucha por la justicia social, con cada huelga, cada protesta, cada sentada. El movimiento construye la solidaridad de la clase trabajadora contra la supremacía blanca, la misoginia, la opresión de las personas LGBTQ2+ y el chivo expiatorio de los inmigrantes.Construir un movimiento verdaderamente revolucionario es la clave del futuro.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Sonny Beck Honored by Indiana Chamber of Commerce SHARE SHARE Sonny Beck Honored by Indiana Chamber of Commerce Facebook Twitter sonny-beck-in-chamber-honorThe Indiana Chamber of Commerce Business Leader of the Year is described by the organization as an agriculture titan. Sonny Beck, CEO of Beck’s Hybrids in Atlanta, Indiana was honored this week during the annual awards ceremony.There have been many honors for Sonny and Beck’s through the years. President of the company and Sonny’s son, Scott Beck, told HAT his father feels this award goes to the family, the company and the farmers they serve, just to name a few.“It’s incredibly humbling and a very special award,” he said, “and it was good to be a part of it and understand that when he made his remarks there that he was accepting on behalf of his wife, my mother, our family, the family of employees that we have, the business associates and industry and government officials, and really people throughout the state of Indiana who have made a good working environment here within the state, and have just supported what we’ve done. Certainly the farmers we do business with are included in all that. A very neat award.”Scott says that Sonny is very deserving of the award, and he would know, based on their nearly 3 decades of working closely together. He tried to summarize what makes the leader of the largest family owned seed company in the U.S. tick.Scott Beck“He’s passionate about farming, passionate about what we do in the company in helping farmers succeed, and he’s passionate about the people who are surrounding him every day. It’s been said that if you want something done you ask someone who’s already busy and they’ll get it done. That’s kind of his nature as well, and yet at the same time there’s not a person on this earth that he would not sit down and spend time with if they asked them to.”The hallmark of Beck’s Hybrids under Sonny Beck’s leadership has been consistent annual growth, and Scott says recent expansion efforts have been a part of Beck’s move toward gaining greater independence in germplasm to ultimately “bring new and better products to farmers.”Scott Beck comments on what’s in the future for Beck’s:becks-hybrids-in-the-future By Andy Eubank – Nov 17, 2016 Facebook Twitter Previous articleLong Range Weather Looks Good for 2017 CropsNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 18, 2016 Andy Eubank

Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts RSF_en May 11, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three provincial journalists freed after being held illegally for a week News Reports April 28, 2020 Find out more MozambiqueAfrica Mozambique: Case of missing Mozambican journalist referred to UN Sebastião Canjera, the editor of the privately-owned newspaper Mabarwe, João Mascarenhas, his news editor, and Patreque Francisco, one of his reporters, were freed late yesterday after being held illegally for a week, Reporters Without Borders learned today from Alfredo Libombo, the executive director of the Mozambican branch of the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA).Libombo said the three journalists were not allowed to use their notebooks or pens during their detention. They are to meet with the Manica province prosecutor today to establish the exact circumstances that led their arrest on 3 May.—————10.05.2006 – Three journalists held illegally since 3 May in libel caseReporters Without Borders today accused a deputy prosecutor in the central Mozambican province of Manica of “flagrant abuse of authority” for detaining the editor and news editor of the privately-owned newspaper Mabarwe and one of their reporters since 3 May with the complicity of the local police.”We call for the immediate and unconditional release of these three journalists, who have spent a week in prison, for an administrative investigation into how this absurd situation came about, and for the punishment of those found responsible,” the press freedom organisation said.The police arrested editor Sebastião Canjera, news editor João Mascarenhas and reporter Patreque Francisco in the provincial capital of Chimoio on World Press Freedom Day on the orders of deputy prosecutor Jose Abede.Abede acted in response to libel action brought by influential Barue district businessman Tiago Pangaia over a report that he was arrested for allegedly stealing 70 head of cattle and then freed at the deputy prosecutor’s behest for lack of evidence.The three journalists are still being held in Chimoio. The executive director of the Mozambican branch of the independent Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA), Alfredo Libombo, said he had been told him they would be freed today. Libombo said he had not been able to reach either Abede or the police chief, but he had spoken to Abede’s superior, Tomas Zandamela, who had acknowledged that there was no legal provision for preventive detention in libel cases.There is provision for prison sentences for libel in Mozambique, but the courts never apply them and it is very rare for journalists to be arrested. The most recent case registered by Reporters Without Borders was on 30 June 2003, when José Armando Chitula, the editor of the daily Imparcial, was arrested at Maputo airport and held for 24 hours. to go further Joint letter to Mozambique’s president about journalist’s disappearance Follow the news on Mozambique
