The FTSE 100 is at its lowest since 2016. Here’s what could happen next

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. See all posts by Peter Stephens The fall in the FTSE 100 in recent weeks means it’s now trading at its lowest level since July 2016. Back then, investors were concerned about the impact of Brexit on the UK economy. Today, coronavirus’ impact on global supply chains and demand in major economies such as China is their main fear.In the short run, investor sentiment may continue to be highly cautious. However, in the long run, a successful recovery in the FTSE 100’s price level seems likely. As such, now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares and hold them for 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…Short-term risksThe ultimate impact of coronavirus on the world economy is a known unknown. So far, it has caused a number of factories in China to close, while consumer demand for a range of products has fallen as a result of lower footfall to retail outlets.This trend could continue in the short run, and may even increase depending on the severity of coronavirus’ outbreak in countries such as the US and across Europe. As such, it would be unsurprising for the FTSE 100 to experience a high level of volatility in the coming weeks and months – especially since investor sentiment is already weak. Investors could respond very unfavourably to news that coronavirus is spreading more rapidly, for example.Long-term prospectsDespite the short-term impact on the world economy from coronavirus, the likelihood is that the FTSE 100 will recover in the long run. A similar pullback, although perhaps not on the same scale, occurred during the SARS outbreak in 2003. However, at that time, investor sentiment was already relatively downbeat due to the fallout from the bursting of the tech bubble.Despite those difficulties, the FTSE 100 recovered to double by the time the financial crisis hit in 2007. Even though that was one of, if not the, worst recession in living memory, the index successfully posted new record highs in the following years.As such, the pattern of the FTSE 100 shows that short, sharp corrections and bear markets are fairly commonplace and can occur for a variety of reasons. In addition, they have always been followed by successful recoveries.Buying opportunityBuying FTSE 100 shares today could be a risky move in the short run due to the potential for a further decline in the index’s price level. However, over the long run, it could prove to be a sound move. It may enable you to capitalise on low valuations across a variety of sectors which increase your potential rewards in the coming years.Therefore, investors who are able to look beyond near-term uncertainty and buy into the recovery prospects of the index may be handsomely rewarded in the long term.center_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Cannabis Dispensary Says Company Will Sue the City

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Community News Cannabis Dispensary Says Company Will Sue the City MedMen set to seek relief in court after City Manager rejects application By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Thursday, September 3, 2020 | 1:22 pm STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 27 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it In a comment to Pasadena Now, a MedMen spokesperson said the cannabis dispensary has been treated unfairly and will file a lawsuit against the city.“We believe the city has treated us unfairly and inconsistently from how they have treated other applicants, and the August 27th letter addressed to MedMen is flawed and filled with factual inaccuracies. We intend to seek relief in court,” a MedMen spokesperson said Thursday, one day after Pasadena Now reported the company’s application had been rejected.MedMen (MME Pasadena), Harvest Pasadena, Integral LLC, Tony Fong, Atrium, and Sweetflower won the right to apply for the necessary permits to legally sell cannabis in Pasadena. So far, only Harvest, Integral, and Tony Fong have advanced in the process. Atrium and Sweetflower were disqualified on procedural issues.But late last month, Mermell rejected MedMen’s application after an internal investigation revealed a material change in ownership and company management.According to the city’s process, “A change of ownership and/or management is not allowed and is considered material where it constitutes a change of control.”“It is my finding that there has been a material change in ownership and/or management in MedMen such that the evaluation and scoring of MedMen’s Application are no longer valid,” Mermell wrote in that Aug. 27 letter. “As such, it is my decision that: there is a change of control, MedMen has lost the right to proceed through the cannabis permitting process, and MedMen’s Application is hereby rejected.”According to Mermell, nine out of 10 applicants listed as owners on MedMen’s applications in the city’s process have changed since the company was chosen to move forward in the process, including Adam Bierman, who served as the company’s chief executive officer, Chief Operating Officer Ben Cook and MedMen President Andrew Modlin.Gotham Green acquired 31.9 percent of the company’s voting power and 575,434,313 shares, which makes it the second-largest shareholder in the company.“The city concludes that Gotham Green, with 31.9 percent of the total voting power and as the second-largest shareholder, has the ability to control management and the direction of MedMen,” according to Mermell’s letter.The application process placed high importance in previous experience and demonstrated knowledge of the cannabis industry, which Biernan Cook and Modlin possess.In his letter, Mermell said the new leaders in the company do not have a cannabis background.“Notably, MedMen provided little to no evidence of cannabis experience of its current management team and Board of Directors, who appear to have primarily retail and food and beverage experience at retailers such as Frederick’s of Hollywood, David’s Bridal, Guess, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and Whole Foods,” Mermell wrote. “No evidence was provided that any of the current management team have comparable cannabis permit experience, such as that provided by Bierman, Modlin and Cook.”When asked to comment on Thursday city officials referred Pasadena Now back to the letter sent to MedMen officials.

Mollie Tibbetts case: Body found believed to be missing Iowa jogger; murder charge filed

first_imgPoweshiek County Sheriff’s Office(BROOKLYN, Iowa) — A first-degree murder charge was filed on Tuesday against a young man in the case of missing Iowa jogger Mollie Tibbetts, state officials said Tuesday.The suspect, 24-year-old Cristhian Rivera, is an undocumented immigrant who lives in the rural area where the college student vanished one month ago, according to Rick Rahn of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.A body recovered Tuesday morning in a farm field is believed to be Tibbetts, Rahn said, but the identity has not yet been confirmed.Tibbetts, a 20-year-old rising sophomore at the University of Iowa, disappeared the evening of July 18 while jogging in the rural farming town of Brooklyn, a close-knit community of about 1,500 residents.A critical break in the case was finding a local person with security cameras showing Tibbetts jogging, Rahn said.“Through that we were able to identify a vehicle that we believed belonged to Mr. Rivera,” Rahn said. “From that we were able to track his patterns and the routes that he took. We were also able to find Mollie running on this video and we were able to determine that he was one of the last ones to have seen Mollie running.”In an interview, Rivera told authorities he saw Tibbetts running, got out of his car and ran alongside of her, Rahn said.Rivera claimed Tibbetts grabbed her phone and said, “I’m gonna call the police,” according to an arrest affidavit.Rivera told authorities he then panicked, got mad and “blocked” his “memory,” and didn’t remember anything after that until he reached an intersection, according to the affidavit.Rivera claimed he then drove to a field entrance and into a cornfield driveway, before realizing he had Tibbetts in the trunk, the affidavit said.Rivera said he went to get the 20-year-old out of the trunk and saw blood on the side of her head, according to the affidavit.Rivera then said he dragged the college student from his car to a secluded part of a cornfield and left her in corn leaves, face-up, the arrest affidavit stated.Rivera led authorities to Tibbetts’ body, according to Rahn.“I can’t really speak about the motive,” Rahn said. “I can just tell you that he followed her and seemed to be drawn to her on that particular day. For whatever reason he chose to abduct her.”Rivera was first approached on Monday, Rahn said, and “he was willing to talk with us.”Laura Calderwood, Tibbetts’ mother, told ABC News last month there are “no words to describe how you feel when you don’t know where or how your child is,” calling it “excruciating.”One of Tibbetts’ brothers, Scott Tibbetts, told ABC News last month he believed his sister was “fighting her best to get back home.”“I think the best thing, personally, to hang onto hope is … she’s a better fighter than anyone I know,” he said. “So whatever situation she’s in, it’s not like she’s going to sit there and give up.”“We are all suffering over the death of Mollie, knowing that it could have been our own daughter, sister or friend,” Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said in a statement Tuesday.“I spoke with Mollie’s family and passed on the heartfelt condolences of a grieving state,” she said. “Over the past month, thousands of Iowans searched and prayed for Mollie’s safe return. Now, we are called to come together once again to lift up a grieving family.”“We are angry that a broken immigration system allowed a predator like this to live in our community, and we will do all we can bring justice to Mollie’s killer,” Reynolds said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Gulf of Mexico moisture may fuel more flooding in Central US

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — After weeks of heavy rain, many rivers in the central U.S. continue to rise to or toward record flood stages, including in Little Rock, where the Arkansas River reached its highest level since 1945, and in St. Louis, where the Mississippi River reached its highest since 1993. Almost three dozen levees have been breached or overtopped since May 22, and more could be facing a similar fate as additional rain targets the region. Some places could see 4 inches locally as moisture makes its way north from the Gulf of Mexico.Severe weather over the weekend delivered hail and damaging winds in spots from Texas all the way to the East Coast, with downed trees reported into the Northeast.Monday’s forecast calls for severe weather in the Plains, from South Dakota down to Texas, with hail and damaging winds the biggest threats.A tropical system possibly forming in Mexico may send even more heavy rains north into the U.S. by the end of the week.

Lincoln Tortoise Tactics

first_imgFeeling left out of the Oxford tradition of racing hard-shelled creatures, Lincoln have established an official committee to investigate the acquisition of a tortoise. The pet will be trained as a super-athlete but will still not be able to run away as quickly as the college cat which scampered last term. JCR President, Philip Bownes, said the project would be long-term as it is important to “evaluate the whole thing properly” before taking on a new and reliable pet. It is hoped that the purchase will be ready for action in next year’s races.ARCHIVE: 2nd Week TT 2003last_img read more

Air pollution may trigger anxiety symptoms

first_img Read Full Story Recent exposure to air pollution raises the risk for anxiety symptoms, according to a new study by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and colleagues. The study of 71,271 women participating in the long-running Nurses’ Health Study found that higher exposure to PM2.5 (particulate matter <2.5 μm in diameter), especially higher recent exposure, is associated with an increased risk of  symptoms of anxiety, including fearfulness, desire for avoidance, and tendency to worry.The study was published March 24, 2015 in BMJ.The researchers theorize that exposure to particulate matter could increase oxidative stress and inflammation, which have previously been found to exacerbate anxiety.They write, “If confirmed, our findings may have policy and clinical implications, as it is possible that reductions in exposure to PM2.5, through changes to regulations or individual behavior, may help reduce anxiety symptoms.”last_img read more
