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. Why the 2020 stock market recovery could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make a million Enter Your Email Address Risks, such as Brexit and a potential second wave of coronavirus cases, may make a 2020 stock market recovery seem less likely. Indeed, they could negatively impact on the operating conditions for many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares. They may also cause investor sentiment to weaken.However, history suggests the stock market will deliver improving returns in the coming years. With many UK shares currently trading at cheap prices that are well below their historic averages, now could be a very rare opportunity to buy high-quality companies at attractive prices.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…Over time, they could really boost your returns. And that means they may also help you to build a portfolio valued at over a million.An unlikely stock market recovery?Although an elevated level of risk may make a stock market recovery seem less likely, history suggests it’s set to take place over the coming years. For example, since its inception in 1984, the FTSE 100 has experienced several crises. These inlcude the 1987 crash, the ERM challenges in the 1990s, the tech bubble and, of course, the global financial crisis.Even including its recent coronavirus crash, the index has returned over 8% per annum, when dividends are included.As such, there may be a period of volatility. That may even include a second market crash in the coming months. However, over the long run, the share prices of high-quality companies are likely to recover. This could provide an opportunity for investors to buy them at low prices while investor sentiment is weak. And also sell them at significantly higher prices in the long run.Undervalued stocksOf course, some UK shares are undervalued for good reason. They may not, therefore, take part in a stock market recovery. For example, they may have high debt levels, or operate in a sector unlikely to experience rising demand over the coming years.Therefore, it’s important for investors to select the strongest businesses in the most attractive sectors. They may not trade on the lowest valuations on offer at the present time. But their growth rates over the coming years may mean they’re worthy of significantly higher valuations than those at which they currently trade.Making a millionA stock market recovery can produce exceptional returns. As mentioned, the FTSE 100 has delivered a total return of 8% per annum in the last 36 years. However, investors who have bought during periods of weak economic performance while stock prices are low may have enjoyed significantly higher returns than those of the wider market.Undervalued stocks may not remain this cheap forever. Therefore, now could be a rare opportunity to buy a diverse range of companies to benefit from a likely future of new record highs for indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The All Blacks have the haka, Fiji have the cibi or bole, Samoa the siva tau and Tonga the sipi tau. So it’s worth asking: do Australia do a haka? Or any kind of traditional challenge pre-game?As it stands, no.No doubt some fans would love to see one, but there are no plans to change this at the moment. However, at their recent Test against the All Blacks in Perth, the Wallabies had a ‘Welcome to Country’ by an Aboriginal Elder. And at the Rugby World Cup the Australians will have their indigenous-design away jersey as an alternative shirt.Sharp dresser: Kurtley Beale models the indigenous shirt (Getty Images)It is said that at the start of the 20th century, the touring Wallabies and Kangaroos (Australia’s rugby league side) used a war cry that the union version was reportedly fairly dramatic, if somewhat comical. It is believed the act of performing pre-game was “barred” for touring Australian union sides by the late 20s.At the recent Rugby League World Cup, the Kangaroos used what they called an ‘Acknowledgement of Country’, using a pre-game war cry. There has been a recent movement from well-known league stars to reintroduce a war cry, or a pre-match element that represents the modern playing group and their nation’s history.

Grassroots Environmentalist of Infamous “Love Canal” to Speak at Rollins CollegeLois Gibbs, founder and executive director of the Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ), who led her community in a battle against the local, state and federal governments in 1978, will speak at Rollins College on Wednesday, March 22nd, at 7:00 PM in the Bush Science Center Auditorium. Gibbs has been at the forefront of the environmental movement in the U.S. since she led the struggle to have 800 families from her Niagara Falls community evacuated and relocated after discovering their neighborhood sat on 21,000 tons of buried chemical waste.Gibbs, then a housewife with two young children, became concerned about reports of chemical waste in her neighborhood. She wondered if her children’s unusual health problems and those of her neighbors were connected to their exposure to leaking chemical waste. With no prior experience in community activism, Gibbs organized her neighbors and formed the Love Canal Homeowners Association. Her efforts led to the evacuation and relocation of more than 800 families, the cleanup of Love Canal and the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s “Superfund” which is used to locate and clean up toxic sites throughout the U.S.The title of Gibbs’ lecture is “Love Canal; Flint, Michigan; and Struggles of the Environmental Health and Justice Movement.” The lecture is funded by the Thomas P. Johnson Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Gordon J. Barnett Memorial Foundation and the League of Women Voters of Orange County. The presentation is free and open to the public.Founded in 1885, Rollins College is Florida’s oldest college. Located in Winter Park, near Orlando, Rollins is consistently ranked as one of the top regional universities in the South by U.S. News & World Report. In addition to full-time undergraduate programs in the College of Liberal Arts, Rollins offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs for working adults through its evening program at the Hamilton Holt School and graduate business degree programs through its Crummer Graduate School of Business, which has been ranked a top MBA program by Forbes and Bloomberg Businessweek.

Throughout the development, the museum remained open, welcoming 3 million visitors to enjoy recreated iron age houses, royal residences and a new craft centre, as well as engaging 720,000 people in shaping the museum’s transformation through an imaginative public programme – reflecting the museum’s aim to create history ‘with’ rather than ‘for’ the people of Wales. Melanie May | 8 July 2019 | News Art Fund awards the Art Fund Museum of the Year annually to one outstanding museum, which, in the opinion of the judges, has shown exceptional imagination, innovation and achievement across the preceding 12 months.Stephen Deuchar, Art Fund Director and Chair of the judges, said:“St Fagans lives, breathes and embodies the culture and identity of Wales. A monument to modern museum democracy, it has been transformed through a major development project involving the direct participation of hundreds of thousands of visitors and volunteers, putting the arts of making and building into fresh contexts – social and political, historic and contemporary. This magical place was made by the people of Wales for people everywhere, and stands as one of the most welcoming and engaging museums anywhere in the UK.”David Anderson, Director General, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales said:“It is the right of every citizen to participate in culture. I am delighted that St Fagans has been recognised by the Art Fund Museum of the Year judges for the work that we do at the Museum, to give everybody an opportunity to engage with culture in a meaningful way.“Thank you to museum staff past and present, and all our visitors, supporters, volunteers and partners, who have become part of the Amgueddfa Cymru family over the last 10 years. Without you, St Fagans would not be the Museum it is today.”“We believe that cultural organisations can be and should be great storytellers. This is certainly a story we will be sharing for many years to come! Diolch Art Fund!” 581 total views, 2 views today St Fagans National Museum of History has been crowned Art Fund Museum of the Year 2019.Located just outside Cardiff, St Fagans National Museum of History has transported over 40 historical buildings from across Wales, and faithfully re-erected them within its 100 acres of beautiful parkland.They include a Tudor merchant’s house and a Victorian country school, and visitors can watch blacksmiths, bakers and clog-makers demonstrate traditional skills. There are also three new galleries exploring the everyday lives of Welsh people across millennia.The museum was chosen from five shortlisted museums: HMS Caroline (Belfast), Nottingham Contemporary, Pitt Rivers Museum (Oxford), St Fagans National Museum of History (Cardiff) and V&A Dundee. It wins £100,000, with each of the other finalist museums receiving a £10,000 prize in recognition of their achievements.

Michael Jarvis, who chairs the Awards for the organisers The Clothworkers’ Company, said: Main image: by Jamie Duff Greens Windmill Trust Green’s Windmill Trust earned the prize for the best response to the pandemic (the category ‘COVID-19 Response: Embracing Opportunity and Harnessing Risk’). The Trust, which operates Green’s Windmill and Science Centre in Nottingham, was praised for its role supplying the local community with flour during the shortages of the first lockdown in 2020. Over five months when it had to remain closed as a visitor attraction, the fully-restored 19th-century mill fulfilled 830 flour orders – five times the amount it produces in a normal year. One day saw the historic mill ran for an unprecedented 16 hours to take advantage of a good wind. The local community had not been as reliant on the windmill for their flour since the 1800s.

Judges were impressed with how the board’s continued investment in a digital strategy placed the charity in a strong position at the start of the pandemic. This saw MWNUK focus on enhancing its digital services, including virtual workshops, increased use of social media, the MWN Hub and online chat function (an extension of the MWN Helpline). Melanie May | 28 May 2021 | News TLC (Talk, Listen, Change) won the award for ‘Board Equity, Diversity and Inclusion’. The Greater Manchester charity won for its approach to creating a board profile representative of the charity’s service users after deliberately seeking individuals from ethnic minority backgrounds, those under the age of 40, and/or individuals with lived experiences similar to the charity’s beneficiaries. The Board put diversity and inclusion at the heart of its approach, and transformed its own composition to include the diversity of skills and experience it needed.

Judges were impressed by how the charity’s trustees identified the importance of pre-primary education and its effect on children’s long-term learning outcomes with it since transforming its support of pre-primary education and investing in processes for evaluating its impact. While ten years ago, EdUKaid sponsorships supported 200 children per annum, today, its community-led education initiatives support more than 10,000 children every year.

Scottish local authorities are bracing themselves for a second day of action next week as Unison announced that its 75,000 members will go on strike again.The union is in dispute with Scotland’s councils over the below-inflation pay offer of 2.5 per cent (Personnel Today, 5 September). Unison has rejected a Convention of Scottish Local Authorities “repackaging” of the original offer after a meeting last week. The union announced that industrial action would continue with a further one-day strike on 20 September. This will be followed by selective indefinite action from key groups of employees in all councils across Scotland. Unison’s Scottish Organiser for Local Government Joe Di Paola said, “CoSLA should understand that our members are serious. Their commitment to local services cannot be exploited in this way. They need fair treatment and fair pay.” The previous day of action, on 29 August, was reminiscent of the major strikes of the 1970s which brought down the Callaghan government, with rubbish piling up in the streets and most schools closed.A CoSLA spokeswoman said, “We have had informal discussions with the unions and have said we would be prepared to discuss a 2 per cent rise from 1 April with a 3 per cent rise on 1 October, but Unison rejected that.” Scotland’s public sector set for more strikesOn 12 Sep 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.

This in turn would “make government housing delivery targets impossible to achieve and slow new building across the sector”, he said.House pricesIf KMPG is correct, the nation will be hoping that the Prime Minister can reach an agreement to leave the EU with a deal on 31 October. If he does, KPMG suggested house prices would continue to rise next year, growing by about 1.3%. The north-west would be expected to record the fastest growth in 2019, of 1.6%, while Yorkshire and the Humber would take the lead in 2020 with growth of 2.4%.Jan Crosby added that Britain leaving without a deal would probably lead to a sharp drop in sales volumes as wary homeowners wait for the turbulence in the property market to clear. This in turn would “make government housing delivery targets impossible to achieve and slow new building across the sector”, he said.Yael Selfin, Chief Economist at KPMG UK, said 2020 would be a delicate year for the housing market. “Even if Brexit can be resolved relatively smoothly, the travails of the global economy will impact growth in the UK, making prospects for house prices relatively subdued,” she said.Read more about Brexit and house prices.KPMG September 3, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
