first_img The FTSE 100 fell below 6,000 again during Friday trading, and many investors will be dreading that unwanted sequel, stock market crash part 2. This is understandable, as the pandemic isn’t over yet. We aren’t going to rid ourselves of Covid-19 that easily. Instead, it pops up everywhere lockdowns are eased.Some would see this as good reason to avoid the FTSE 100 altogether. I think that would be a mistake. At times like these, it makes sense to heed the words of the world’s greatest investor, Warren Buffett. He didn’t make his fortune by ducking for cover in a stock market crash. Instead, he used the dip to pick up top shares at bargain 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…Warren Buffett’s most famous quote is as true today as it ever was: “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.” Right now, investors are fearful. We all are, and will remain so until a vaccine is found.I’d buy UK shares todayThis makes today the ideal time to get greedy, and start buying UK shares. Yes, we could get stock market crash part 2, and that would hurt. But if you keep putting off investing in the hope that shares will be cheaper tomorrow, you will never get started.Nobody has a reliable crystal ball. Or as Warren Buffett put it: “In the business world, the rearview mirror is always clearer than the windshield.”At the start of this year, few saw the coronavirus stock market crash coming. At the depths of the wipeout on 23 March, few saw the subsequent recovery. You cannot hold off investing until the windshield is clearer. It never will be.I think the best way to approach this market is to drip-feed money into UK shares, whenever you have cash at your disposal. Always keep some money on instant access, to cover three to six months of outgoings in a crisis, but look to invest your long-term wealth in a Stocks and Shares ISA, for tax-free returns. It makes sense to buy after a stock market crash, when prices are cheaper. History shows that markets always recover in the end, and investors who got greedy when others were fearful are handsomely rewarded when they do.Buy now and forget the stock market crashI would target companies with a clear and attractive customer proposition, steady revenues and manageable debts. My aim would be to hold them for the long term, reinvesting all dividends for growth. Warren Buffett puts it nicely, as ever: “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.”A stock market crash is a great buying opportunity, because it can show you which companies are most resilient. If you like what you see, now is a good time to be bold. As Warren Buffett said: “Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble.” 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.

The enjoyment of the interior spaces of this house was the central motive around which the project revolves, based on this idea proposed to the owners, the house was designed in such a way that the exterior gesture was powerful and that the subtlety of the environments interiors will help to have particular experiences for each space of use. The project was designed to meet the space and growth needs of a family of 5 people, where the future requirements for the children in the following years would have to be considered.Save this picture!Cortesía de Hector Hernandez VillegasSave this picture!Cortesía de Hector Hernandez VillegasThrough a composition of very forceful elements that dialogue with each other with their respective materials, the house develops on two levels, the lower level being partially closed in front of the lot and translucent to the rear garden; while the upper floor has some inconspicuous visual escapes, for the most part they enjoy the interior.Save this picture!Cortesía de Hector Hernandez VillegasThe landscape is filtered throughout the project, one has landscaped landscapes in each visual finish both on the ground and upper floors. The family’s social and work life takes place on the ground floor, consisting of a double-height room flanked by an interior garden that allows the natural environment to be more directly related to life inside the house.Save this picture!Cortesía de Hector Hernandez VillegasSave this picture!© Emmanuel OrtizA study at a slightly lower level allows you to have a space separated from the rest of the house but with direct visual communication with the rest of the social area. For the dining and kitchen areas, a simple height was considered to maintain the cozy atmosphere of the activities that take place there.Save this picture!© Emmanuel OrtizSave this picture!Cortesía de Hector Hernandez VillegasOn the upper floor, life is completely private, with 4 rooms with different visual intentions but with the same spatial and material concept. One room has access to a terrace, another to a garden, etc. Materiality plays a very important role in giving hierarchy and character to each formal element that makes up the house. A specific case is the study and services block of one of the rooms, the rest of the volume of the house being revealed as a monolith with its own gesture.Save this picture!© Emmanuel OrtizProject gallerySee allShow lessNampa House Restaurant / Listen CommunicationSelected ProjectsCommunique Headquarters / DaeWha Kang DesignSelected Projects Share Year:  Area:  564 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses “COPY” Héctor Hernández V. , Flavio Rodríguez H.

He’s worked in everything from sports to student organizations at TCU, and recently began blogging with the Dallas Morning News. In his spare time, Grant enjoys tweeting far too much, pretending he knows more than he does about Premier League soccer, and listening to the music of Kanye West. Facebook + posts Linkedin printBrian Howard must really, really, like Sundays.For the second Sunday in a row, the lanky righthander — it’s almost a law by now that you give his listed height of 6’9″ after mentioning his name — pitched a gem in a clinching game for TCU, this one sending the Frogs to the College World Series in Omaha.Howard was every adjective a pitcher strives to be — commanding, dominant, electric, fill in the blank. He allowed no earned runs and just two hits, and struck out 8 Aggies over his seven innings of work.And, still, it appeared he’d struggle to get credited with a win, or at least a decision, for much of the game.TCU did all they could to strand runners on base. Four straight leadoff men reached first from the 2nd to the 6th inning, and the Frogs could only muster up one run along the way.An error in the first inning meant that the Aggies held a slim 1-0 advantage early in the game. But, unlike yesterday, Howard was able to limit the damage to just that one run.Then came the seventh inning, when everything broke the right way for the Frogs.TCU scored three runs in the inning on just one hit. Three walks, an error, a wild pitch, and a sac fly allowed the Frogs to take a 4-1 lead that would prove to be the final score.Every run in this game was unearned, for both teams.It was that kind of night, with chaos, errors, and a strike zone that moved around the entire game, but Howard provided a source of consistency and energy for TCU, shutting down hitters and leaping across the right field line entering and exiting the field.“He pitched his tail off today,” Texas A&M second baseman Ryne Birk said.“The story of the night is Brian Howard,” A&M head coach Rob Childress said. “He made the pitch when it mattered most.”Howard was asked if this game was the best he’d pitched in his life, and he didn’t hesitate to say yes.“That was a lot of fun,” Howard said. “I felt like my stuff was working tonight.”“I really committed to executing [pitching] coach [Kirk] Saarloos’s game plan.”When he exited the game, freshman closer Durbin Feltman came in, and picked up right where Howard left off. Feltman didn’t allow a baserunner over his two innings, and struck out Michael Barash on a called strike three to win the series.TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said in a game filled with so many errors and unearned runs, it’s a whole different kind of ballgame.“It’s never about the best team, it’s about the team that plays the best,” Schlossnagle said. “I don’t want to discount my club, but there’s 13 guys drafted off of [A&M].”“Some people say it’s luck, but I think you make your own luck. If Brian doesn’t pitch well, those extra ninety feet don’t matter.”TCU’s 4-1 win takes them to the College World Series for the third season in a row. For a team that played only two seniors all season in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, the Frogs have outpaced expectations.They’ll seek to do that again in Omaha, beginning with a matchup against Big 12 rivals Texas Tech.

Last March, as COVID-19 spread and unemployment numbers increased, delinquency rates on mortgage and other loans plummeted, the total opposite of what typically happens during downturns, including the 2008 financial crisis. In fact, the researchers point out that during the last crisis, mortgage delinquencies jumped from 2% to 8% but in the first seven months of the pandemic they dropped from 3 to 1.8.%This is especially striking,” the researchers note, “given an unprecedented increase in the unemployment rate that reached almost 15% in [the second quarter of 2020] and the strong historical association between the unemployment rate and mortgage default.”The reason for the anomaly? Forbearance programs. According to an article in Fortune related to the study,  “instead of cracking down on delinquent borrowers—foreclosing on homes, repossessing autos, declaring other debts in default—they offered forbearance far more generously than ever before. Forbearance doesn’t reduce a borrower’s debt. It just permits the borrower to put off some payments until later without the lender declaring the borrower delinquent and denting the borrower’s credit rating.”Fortune’s Geoff Colvin concludes from the study that going easier on debtors is a “wise move.””In the big picture, overburdened households undermine the whole economy—what economists call ‘the standard household debt distress channel.’ During the financial crisis, the spike in mortgage delinquencies sent home prices into a self-reinforcing downward spiral as homeowners rushed to sell and banks put foreclosed properties on the market, forcing prices down and prompting other homeowners to sell before prices went even lower. Overall demand collapsed, pushing the economy into a hole that took three years to escape.”He says the CARES Act included a section requiring forbearance of federally insured mortgages—the vast majority of all mortgages—for that very reason.“Most potential delinquencies in the mortgage market were averted because of forbearance,” the researchers wrote in the study, and they deduce “the low delinquencies explain at least in part why the pandemic has not resulted in house price declines.”According to the study, all sorts of banks and lenders—auto loans, student loans, credit card debt—followed the forbearance suit.”The private sector and policymakers may have internalized the lessons from the Great Recession pointing to significant costs of widespread defaults and foreclosures and were more willing to provide debt relief,” noted the researchers. “It’s also possible, they note, that “the underlying adverse shock has been perceived as more transitory relative to the prior crisis.”In summary, massive consumer debt forbearance actions can help explain why, unlike during the Great Recession, the standard household debt channel was largely absent during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.” As Colvin writes, one can hope that “this lesson is the one policymakers will carry with them into the next downturn.” 2021-01-19 Christina Hughes Babb January 19, 2021 1,111 Views Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more
