At the time, I was running my own company and the book inspired me to make changes to the underlying business. Indeed, Warren Buffett’s investing principles helped me make the business more profitable and led to its sale. And that’s how I achieved the capital for investing in the stock market.The book taught me about the difference between what Buffett calls Commodity-Type businesses, and Excellent or Consumer Monopoly businesses.  The former tend to have zero pricing power, and the latter tend to enjoy profitable market niches and strong brands. So, armed with that information, I achieved mixed investing results in the stock market. But soon discovered Benjamin Graham’s classic tome The Intelligent Investor. And the book gave me a decent foundation for how to recognise a share price that was mispricing the underlying business. I’d recommend every serious-minded investor wade through its pages. Within the covers, there’s a good grounding in basic value investing.Essential Warren BuffettBut delving more into Buffett’s methods led to me to his shareholder letters. They reveal he invests differently to Graham. And as far back as the 1960s, he was moving away from simply buying cheap shares. He now puts far more emphasis on the quality of the underlying business. Meanwhile, further insights came when I read Peter Lynch’s books, One Up on Wall Street and Beating the Street. And Jim Slater’s book The Zulu Principle.By then, I had a good grounding in investment strategy and began to overlay techniques from the world of stock trading. Richard Farleigh reckons trading and investing are becoming more closely linked over time. And the insights I discovered in his book Taming the Lion have been useful.In recent years, I’ve learnt much from Mark Minervini who has written books such as Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard and others. And just as with every new investing book I’ve studied, my returns from the stock market have increased because of the insights I’ve gained.Depending on your starting point, aiming for a million from shares can be an ambitious target. But I believe most people can adopt a lifelong learning approach to investment strategy and combine it with experience in the markets to achieve the goal.

Market crash 2.0: why a market sell-off can help an investor get rich and retire early

Some investors may be avoiding equity markets due to the threat of a second stock market crash. Economic risks are currently relatively high. This could lead to tough trading conditions for many businesses that causes investor sentiment to deteriorate.Clearly, a market downturn is likely to be painful for all investors in the short run. However, it can also provide buying opportunities for long-term investors. The stock market has a long track record of recovering from even its very worst declines. This could help an investor to generate impressive returns. It may even improve their prospects of retiring early.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…The prospect of a second market crashDetermining whether a second market crash will occur is an extremely challenging task. However, risks such as Brexit, the coronavirus pandemic and an unstable economic outlook may mean there’s an elevated chance of challenging conditions for investors. They could contribute to declining profitability and deteriorating investor sentiment in the coming months. This could prompt a return to large stock price falls as investors factor in lower profit guidance over the medium term.Clearly, there’s no guarantee that a further market decline will occur. Current stock prices may already factor in the aforementioned threats to global economic growth. However, the wide range of risks and their potential impact on global GDP growth may mean investor sentiment is highly changeable at the present time.Buying cheap shares in a downturnAs mentioned, a market crash would be a painful experience for most investors. They’d suffer losses on their current holdings. This may dissuade them from entertaining the idea of buying more stocks in order to avoid further losses.However, a market decline can provide excellent buying opportunities for long-term investors. During a downturn, high-quality companies likely to return to strong profit growth in the long run can trade at exceptionally low prices. Weak investor sentiment towards the equity market can produce a wide range of bargain stocks that go on to deliver impressive capital returns.There’s no guarantee any share will recover from a stock market crash. But a diverse portfolio of shares is relatively likely to produce impressive long-term returns. The track record of indexes such as the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 shows they’ve always experienced sustained bull markets following bear markets. Therefore, owning a broad range of high-quality businesses is likely to allow an investor to take part in a long-term recovery.Retirement prospects from investing money in sharesBuying shares after a second market crash may appear to be a risky move. In the short run, it can mean additional paper losses due to the potential for the stock market to move lower.However, the stock market’s recovery potential may mean equities offer a relatively attractive means of building a retirement nest egg. As such, capitalising on low stock prices may prove to be a logical response to any further market downturn.

Rugby must build on Women’s World Cup

first_img We are the champions! England celebrate their Women’s World Cup triumph in Paris After England beat Canada to be crowned world champions, rugby must make the most of this opportunity to grow the women’s game To finish, though, let us celebrate England’s momentous achievement and hope that this tournament inspires the next generation of women’s rugby stars. In the words of Alphonsi: “Hopefully it will increase participation and get more people involved in the sport. This has grown attention to the sport and people who’ve not watched it before now want to watch it more. Women’s rugby is a spectator sport in England and across the world now.”Don’t miss monthly reports from the women’s game in Rugby World. “THIS COULD  be the tipping point for women’s rugby worldwide.” Those were the words of England coach Gary Street after England’s 21-9 Women’s World Cup final win over Canada at the Stade Jean Bouin in Paris.It’s important to celebrate England’s achievement – after three successive defeats to New Zealand in the climax of the women’s tournament they deserve huge credit for lifting the trophy for the first time in 20 years – but the bigger picture could prove more significant.In recent years the focus in women’s rugby has shifted to sevens. With rugby sevens making its Olympics debut in Rio in 2016, the IRB have a Women’s World Sevens Series and countries like Canada and Australia are putting a lot of funding into the abbreviated game.This month’s World Cup has shown, however, that there is a huge appetite for 15-a-side women’s rugby. Record TV figures and big crowds have put the game in front of a wider audience than ever before and raised its profile hugely. As Street says: “Women’s rugby at this level is a hell of a sport.”Thanks for the memories: fans have been out in force throughout the Women’s World Cup in ParisThe final may have been a stop-start affair but few sporting finals are exceptional given the pressure of the occasion. It’s the semi-finals to which people should look to see the quality of the women’s game today.England were simply sublime in the way they dismantled Ireland in their last-four tie on Wednesday, the forwards showing no mercy up front and the backs capitalising on that momentum. Then the crowd – as raucous as many a men’s Test match – for the semi-final between France and Canada were treated to a nip-tuck affair where the contact was wince-inducing and the Magali Harvey try was a joy to watch. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the four years since the last World Cup, the standard of play has risen hugely. England and New Zealand were in a class of their own in 2010 whereas France, Ireland and Canada have all added to the mix here.The improvement in tight-forward skills was evident in the number of tries scored at this tournament from diving mauls – a technical element of the game that is now being mastered by the elite female players. Kicking, once the glaring weakness in the women’s game, has also developed across all the sides, be that in a tactical or goalkicking sense.Wonder woman: Emily Scarratt scores the decisive try in the final and also kicked 11 pointsThe physicality of matches has definitely gone up several notches too. In 2010, Maggie Alphonsi’s fierceness in the tackle set her apart but back-rowers in all teams now show that same power – and that’s without mentioning Canada centres Andrea Burk and Mandy Marchak, who hit with huge force and determination in midfield.The challenge now is to maintain the momentum. Women’s rugby has made the front pages today but it’s important that people continue to recognise their achievements. These are the women who should be idolised by young girls today, not the reality TV stars who wouldn’t want to risk breaking a nail at the breakdown. These players have to juggle jobs as vets and plumbers with competing at the elite level on a global stage; those sacrifices cannot be underestimated and should be roundly applauded.

Guest Opinion | Mohammad Tajsar: City, Police Must Commit to Community-Led Process to Establish Much-Needed Reforms

first_imgOpinion & Columnists Guest Opinion | Mohammad Tajsar: City, Police Must Commit to Community-Led Process to Establish Much-Needed Reforms By MOHAMMAD TAJSAR Published on Monday, June 18, 2018 | 5:28 pm 4 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Top of the News First Heatwave Expected Next Week HerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Signs Your Perfectionism Has Gotten Out Of ControlHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Questions To Start Conversation Way Better Than ‘How U Doing?’HerbeautyHerbeauty Author Mohammad TajsarOn November 9, 2017, Pasadena police officers violently attacked 21-year-old Christopher Ballew at an Altadena Mobil Gas Station after allegedly stopping him over tinted windows and a missing front license plate. The beating—captured on a bystander’s cell phone video and subsequently revealed in videos from the officers’ dashboard and body cameras—triggered yet another nationwide outcry about excessive force perpetrated by local police officers.Given the pervasiveness of police’s unjustified uses of force, community leaders and police reform activists have offered myriad solutions to this seemingly intractable problem: updating police trainings, imposing more rigorous disciplinary consequences for violations, aggressively prosecuting problem cops, and re-investing in community development in overpoliced areas. All these solutions demand thoughtful consideration. But in almost all cases of excessive force, the policies and procedures guiding officer actions have been shown to be woefully insufficient in restraining their ability to deploy unnecessary and deadly force. Studies show that agencies with stricter use of force policies have lower rates of killing civilians and a lower rate of officer deaths or significant injury.Unfortunately, the Pasadena Police Department still uses an antiquated use of force policy which does not sufficiently protect members of the public or police officers from such risks. This policy, developed by a private entity named Lexipol LLP, is not subject to meaningful civilian oversight, and is designed to reduce legal liability rather than to protect members of the public and reign in police misconduct.Following a thorough analysis, the ACLU of Southern California and the Pasadena-based Coalition for Increased Civilian Oversight of Pasadena Police delivered a letter to the City of Pasadena’s leadership on May 30 identifying six deficiencies in this policy which increase the likelihood that Pasadena residents may again be subjected to the kind of violence that Mr. Ballew suffered.For instance, Pasadena’s use of force policy does not require that police officers use widely established “de-escalation” techniques designed to limit the temperature of encounters between police and members of the public. Although police departments in San Francisco, Seattle, Camden, and Chicago have mandated the use of such techniques, Pasadena does not.Nor does Pasadena require police officers exhaust alternatives to using force when interacting with an individual. The officers who beat Mr. Ballew resorted to violence first, even brandishing a gun at one point in the interaction, over a minor traffic stop. Had their Department required that the officers use alternative means to engaging Mr. Ballew, he might have left the scene without a black eye and a broken leg.The ACLU’s letter also highlights other areas of needed reform, including requiring that the department mandate officers use force only proportionally to the seriousness of the offense, provide more guidance to officers about when particular uses of force may be deployed, and prohibit particularly dangerous tactics shown to be unreasonable and deadly (like chokeholds (carotid holds), firing warning shots, and shooting at moving vehicles).With these recommendations in hand, the City of Pasadena and the leadership of the Police Department must now commit to an honest and community-led process for establishing the much-needed reforms necessary to prevent another beating. Making the changes suggested in the ACLU letter is a good first step. More must be done, including convening an independent process where members of community groups and City leadership sit together to craft binding, and holistic, solutions to the problems that exist within the Department. The results of this process should be public and binding, and should include public-facing policies that prioritize public safety, rather than continue to use those developed by an unaccountable private company. Taking these steps will go a long way to making sure that Mr. Ballew’s injuries will not have been suffered in vain.

NY coronavirus death toll has largest single-day jump; musician John Prine dies

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStock(NEW YORK) — A global pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed at least 12,893 people in the United States.The U.S. has more cases than any other country, with over 398,000 people diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Worldwide, more than 1.42 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and at least 82,074 of them have died since the virus emerged in China in December. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Italy has the world’s highest death toll — over 17,100. Here’s how the news developed on Tuesday. All times Eastern:10:01 p.m.: John Prine dies of coronavirusLongtime singer-songwriter John Prine has died of coronavirus, his representative told ABC News.“Widely lauded as one of the most influential songwriters of his generation, John’s impact will continue to inspire musicians for years to come,” the Recording Academy said in a statement. “We send our deepest condolences to his loved ones.”The 73-year-old had recently been checked into Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, suffering from COVID-19, his family said in late March.Prine was nominated for 11 Grammy Awards in his career and took home two trophies and he was just announced as a 2020 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. He won awards for best contemporary folk album for The Missing Years in 1992 and another for Fair & Square in 2006.He earned praise from a litany of legendary singers, including Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, both of whom cited him as one of their favorite artists.9:52 p.m.: San Diego moves to curb spread of virus among homelessSan Diego officials announced an ambitious plan to curb the spread of COVID-19 among its substantial homeless population.Mayor Kevin Faulconer said the city is directing millions of dollars to a shelter-at-home operation that will turn the San Diego Convention Center into a temporary home for hundreds of people currently living in the streets.San Diego has the fourth-highest homeless population in the country, behind New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.9:03 p.m.: LA to mandate face coverings for essential employeesLos Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the city is implementing a policy effective Friday requiring workers in grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants, hotels, taxi and ride-share companies and construction sites to wear nonmedical face coverings while at work. In addition, customers entering their businesses must also wear face coverings or they could be refused service.There were 550 new confirmed cases in Los Angeles County in the past 24 hours — a 9% increase from the day before — bringing the total to 6,936 confirmed cases.The death toll rose to 169 overall with 22 reported in the last day, an increase of 15% from the prior day.Garcetti also appointed a chief logistical officer who will be in charge of procuring PPE for medical staff and first responders.8:41 p.m.: Utah converting brushfire trucks into ambulancesConcerns over the rising number of coronavirus cases have led first responders in Utah to seek an usual solution.Members of Utah’s Unified Fire Authority have begun converting specialized trucks used for fighting brushfires into ambulances for responding to COVID-19 calls.“What we have done is prepare them for medical response calls, which is something we have never used them for before,” said UFA’s Matthew McFarland.The retrofitted vehicles are being stocked with ambulance equipment and supplies — but they won’t be used for transporting patients.“It is not going to compromise your transport,” McFarland said. “If they show up and immediately determine that someone needs transport … we are going to have a transport rig there by the time their assessment is done.”7:27 p.m.: Florida sees spike in cases, deathsFlorida saw a jump in confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths over the last 24 hours, according to the state’s health department.About 1,118 people were diagnosed in the past day, with the total number of COVID-19 patients rising to 14,747, the health department said. There were 42 coronavirus-related fatalities in the last 24 hours, which represented a 16.5% jump in deaths, according to the health department data.A total of 296 Florida residents have died from the disease, the health department said.6:20 p.m.: Trump, Fauci acknowledge larger share of cases in minority communitiesPresident Donald Trump and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, acknowledged that data shows minorities have higher rates of coronavirus infections.Fauci said higher rates of pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and asthma within black and minority communities were a factor, as well as their higher use of public transportation.“We are very concerned about that. It is very sad. There is nothing we can do about it right now except to give them the best possible care to avoid complications,” Fauci said.Trump said the White House would release data on coronavirus cases by race shortly.6:15 p.m.: NYPD announces 14th deathNearly a fifth of New York Police Department members called out sick as the force lost another member to the coronavirus, police officials said.The NYPD had 7,060 uniformed members, about 19% of the force, call in sick on Tuesday.

He was transferred to the ICU on Monday afternoon after his conditioned “worsened,” according to Downing Street.7:30 a.m.: ‘There is a light at the end of this tunnel,’ US Surgeon General saysWhile still maintaining that this will be a difficult week for Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Tuesday that he feels “a lot more optimistic” as he reassured citizens “there is a light at the end of this tunnel.” “I absolutely believe this is going to be an incredibly sad and an incredibly hard week for our country, but we’ve had tough times in this country before and we always come out stronger,” Adams told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview on Good Morning America.“The good news is that when you look at Italy, when you look at Spain, when you look at Washington and California, and even New York and New Jersey, they have truly started to flatten their curves,” he added. “They’ve seen cases level off and start to come down, and that’s what I want people to understand — that it’s going to be a hard and tough week, but the American people have the power to change the trajectory of this epidemic if we come together like we have after past tragedies in this country.” Adams said the latest data shows U.S. states like Washington and California have successfully flattened the curves of their outbreaks “because they were aggressively mitigating from the start.” “The most important thing for the American people now is to really focus on these 30-days-to-slow-the-spread guidelines because we have proof that they work,” he said. “But we need you all to cooperate, we need you to continue doing your part — and most people actually are. Over 90% of the country is actually doing the right thing right now.”As of Tuesday morning, eight U.S. states have still not issued or announced stay-at-home orders. Adams said the federal government doesn’t really have “a good mechanism” to enforce stay-at-home orders as much as state authorities do. “We’re working with governors, talking with them every single day, working with states to give them the information they need to make the right choices,” he said. “And that’s really what this comes down to, it’s got to happen at the community level.” Whenever the country does start to reopen, Adams said it’ll still be a “different normal” than what Americans are used to. There will be a greater sense of normalcy once testing becomes more widely available, a vaccine and therapeutics are approved, and there’s a strong public health infrastructure in place, he said. “But I want the American people to know that there is a light at the end of this tunnel,” Adams added, “and we feel confident that if we keep doing the right thing for the rest of this month, that we can start to slowly reopen in some places.”7:09 a.m.: France has not yet peaked, health minister warnsThe number of patients hospitalized in intensive care for the novel coronavirus in France has been steadily decreasing for the past five days. But French Health Minister Olivier Veran warned Tuesday that the country has not yet reached the peak of its outbreak.“We are still in a worsening phase of the pandemic,” Véran told French broadcaster BFM TV, adding that the nationwide lockdown would last as long as necessary.Almost 99,000 people across France have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and nearly 9,000 of them have died, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Close to 30,000 patients infected with the novel coronavirus are currently hospitalized, according to the French health ministry.6:25 a.m.: Positive cases top 10,000 in AfricaAt least 10,075 people across Africa have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to figures released Tuesday by the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.So far, 487 people diagnosed with COVID-19 have died.The Northern Africa region has, by far, the largest cluster of cases on the continent, with 4,485 confirmed infections. However, with 1,686 positive cases, South Africa now has the highest national total, surpassing that of both Algeria and Egypt, according to the Africa CDC.5:05 a.m.: Japan declares state of emergency for seven prefecturesJapan on Tuesday declared a month-long state of emergency for Tokyo and six other prefectures to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus.Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced the order in a brief televised statement, saying the country’s outbreak was threatening to gravely impact people’s lives and the economy.The declaration, effective through May 6, empowers governors of the prefectures of Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Osaka, Hyogo and Fukuoka to take more preventative measures, such as requesting citizens to stay home, calling for businesses to close as well as shuttering schools and other public facilities. Supermarkets and other essential businesses are allowed to remain open.However, the declaration is not expected to lead to drastic urban lockdowns like the ones seen in Europe as Japan’s post-World War II constitution limits the central government’s powers.At least 3,906 people in Japan have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and 92 of them have died, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University. The Japanese government has admitted that infection routes cannot be traced in an increasing number of cases.3:30 a.m.: China reports no new deaths for first time since JanuaryChina on Tuesday reported zero new deaths from the novel coronavirus over the past 24 hours.China’s National Health Commission recorded 32 new cases of confirmed infections across the mainland, all of which were imported from abroad, as well as 30 new asymptomatic cases. However, it’s the first time the country has reported no new deaths since the commission began publishing daily figures in late January.Meanwhile, Hong Kong has seen its number of confirmed infections more than double in recent weeks. The Chinese special administrative region on Tuesday reported 1,331 new cases in the past 24 hours, according to the National Health Commission.The very first cases of COVID-19 were detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December before the disease spread around the globe.Since then, a total of 81,740 people on the Chinese mainland have been diagnosed with the disease and 3,331 of them have died, according to the National Health Commission.

Phil Murphy called “almost unfathomable.”The state has a total of 44,416 confirmed cases, Murphy said Tuesday.While there are signs the curve may be flattening, Murphy stressed, “We cannot be happy with only reaching a plateau. We need to keep strong … to see that curve begin to fall and ultimately get to zero.”Coronavirus death toll in US likely worse than numbers sayMurphy said he’s closing all state and county parks in an effort to enforce social distancing.“Don’t think that I take this action lightly,” he said. “We must not just flatten this curve, we must crush this curve.” last_img read more
