The stock market crash has caused a large number of UK shares to trade at low prices. Indexes such as the FTSE 100 currently trade over 20% down on their levels since the start of the year.As such, there may be a rare opportunity to buy high-quality companies at low prices. Certainly, they may not produce quick recoveries due to ongoing risks such as Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic. But over the long run, purchasing undervalued stocks could lead to high returns that improve an investor’s retirement prospects.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…Opportunities arising out of the 2020 stock market crashThe 2020 stock market crash has not been a one-off event for UK shares. The FTSE 100, for example, has experienced numerous declines and bear markets during its history. However, periods of low stock prices do not come along all that often. The most recent sustained bear market prior to 2020 occurred as a result of the global financial crisis over a decade ago. This prompted a 50%+ fall in the FTSE 100’s price level that left many companies trading at low price levels.In the following years, the index experienced a recovery that saw its price level more than double. As such, investors who took advantage of temporarily low stock prices following the 2009 bear market are likely to have benefited in the long run.The FTSE 100 has always recovered from declines experienced as a result of a stock market crash to post new record highs. This suggests that it is likely to not only reverse its 20%+ decline since the start of the year, but also reach a new all-time high over the long run. Therefore, now could be an opportune moment to buy undervalued UK shares that have not yet recovered from this year’s market downturn for the long run.Building a retirement portfolioOf course, the prospect of a second stock market crash means that the short-term outlook for UK shares continues to be uncertain. However, investors who have a long time horizon and who are planning for retirement are likely to have sufficient time for their portfolios to recover from short-term challenges along the wayClearly, it is crucial to diversify among a wide range of companies within any investment portfolio. It remains unclear which sectors will produce the most attractive returns over the coming years due to ongoing economic and political uncertainties. Similarly, some regions may be more heavily impacted by political and economic factors than others.By having a spread of businesses within a portfolio, an investor can reduce risk and also benefit more fully from a likely recovery in the prices of UK shares following any future stock market crash. This could improve their retirement prospects and help them to achieve a greater sense of financial freedom in older age.

Trump flip-flops constantly on issues, and is fickle-minded, plus how many people that he was allies with are now his enemies? A predictor of the future is to examine the past, when it comes to people. I sure hope I don’t see the day that they start drilling for oil offshore in Florida. We have enough problems without that. Anyway, it is my understanding that out in the gulf there a oil well thathas remained unrepaired and uncapped that has been leaking millio s of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico waters. This oil eventually will work its way to Florida waters and beaches. Probably the cause of the marine life dying off on the west coast and east coast and east coast of Florida. Just ask the commercial fishing guides, and they will tell you how bad it is. This country needs to ban the dispersement chemicals they sprayed on the big oil spill, when it happened. All it does is sink the oil to the bottom. It is nothing but a cover-up, so people can’t see the horrors of the spills. Then the bottom feeders on up the whole food chain or affected. Britain banned those chemicals years ago, but here no one does anything about them. TAGSFlorida News ConnectionOffshore Drilling Previous articleCity Attorney releases findings in the Apopka Fire Department investigationNext articleBecker and Byrd clash at City Council; vote for Apopka Fire Chief delayed Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Governor Ron DeSantis means well, on this issue, I do believe, when it comes to cleaning up the waters in this state, I just hope he remembers how Trump is. The governor had spoken with the president about the immigrant children being held in detention camps, and when the subject of sending them to Florida, possibly even Orange County, the governor did not want that, Trump told him that he would not send the kids here to Florida, even reassured the gov several times, but now they are making plans to send them. Obviously Trump’s word means nothing. That is just one example of many many more.

Ron DeSantis says he’s confident President Donald Trump will still protect the Sunshine State.DeSantis and the president are close allies – however, while Trump is keen on increasing U.S. fossil fuel production with offshore drilling, DeSantis says he’s been urging Trump to make sure Florida isn’t included.Susan Glickman, Florida director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, says she’s hopeful that will ring true.“I imagine that President Trump – who will be in a very tight reelection – would not want to anger coastal states like Florida,” says Glickman. “So, it’s probably true that he would not veto that, but we still have a battle to get through the U.S. Senate.”On Wednesday, the U.S. House passed a measure to permanently ban offshore drilling. Opponents, mostly Republicans, argued that a ban undercuts domestic energy security and would limit thousands of job opportunities.Governors and lawmakers of both parties from coastal states strongly oppose expanded drilling. Glickman says that’s because production and oil spills are damaging to the environment – and to Florida’s brand as a destination hotspot.“We saw tremendous destruction during the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill,” says Glickman. “And that memory is ingrained in the minds of coastal residents. So, it’s important to have this permanent protection for our coasts.”Rep. Francis Rooney – R-Naples – sponsored the Protecting and Securing Florida’s Coastline Act of 2019, which passed the House on a vote of 248 to 180. Observers say it has little chance to advance in the Republican-controlled Senate. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

The planning regulations require the creation a free, unbuilt space within the plot. This premise led us to believe that the most suitable design for the morphology of the plot, which was quite rectangular, was a courtyard at the back of the plot. Thus, the building is inserted between two living spaces: one outside, which is the street, and one more intimate, which is the courtyard. Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The next step was to create a friendly, intimate, white courtyard, somewhat abstract and following the Mediterranean tradition. On one side of it is a staircase, that rises straight up against the party wall, and on the other side are the galleries and access to the dwellings.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda This vertical courtyard is covered with a ventilated skylight on the roof to make it livable, a meeting place for residents, a place of transition between public and private, in between the street and the dwelling where architecture must propose a gradient of spaces with different environments and materials. It is a place we could call as “intermediate space.”Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The dwellings are arranged perpendicular to the facade and the backyard. The facade width is distributed into four parts, each of them occupying a dwelling. On the ground floor are three equal dwellings and a corridor, which is the entrance to the building, and the garage ramp. On the first floor are four houses equal to the ones on the ground floor. Finally, on the top floor, due to the mandatory setback of 3 meters from the front facade, there are only two dwellings, which enjoy a terrace overlooking Trasbolsa street.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Access to the dwellings is through the building entrance corridor, to the courtyard, up the stairs or elevator, to the galleries that connect to the homes on the upper floors. On the ground floor, units have direct access through the courtyard that structures the construction.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The units on the ground and first floors have the same layout. Entrance, living room and kitchen are lit from the interior courtyard, a bathroom, and two bedrooms are lit from Trasbolsa street. The window openings that make up the facade must follow planning regulations, the presence of a greater mass of white is necessary, this is a feature of Sanlucar de Barrameda and many municipalities of Andalusia.Save this picture!PlanThe openings are framed by limestone, thus emphasizing their volume within the white stucco facade. These boxes are, in a modern form, reminiscent of the traditional enclosures (or balconies) of the historical centers in this southern area. The galvanized steel slats for ventilating the basement garages act as a base for the building.Project gallerySee allShow lessAndronico Luksic Mining Center / Enrique Browne y Arquitectos AsociadosSelected ProjectsCenter for High Yield – Rowing Pocinho / Alvaro Fernandes AndradeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Cádiz, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

It’s clear to us that these organisations not only play a vital role in our communities but have gone above and beyond to support their communities during the Covid-19 pandemic.“The pandemic changed all of our lives and the new funding from the Virgin Money Foundation and the HFD Charitable Foundation will help those organisations continue their hard work supporting some of the hardest hit communities in the city.”HFD Group is the developer of 177 Bothwell Street, which will become Virgin Money’s new headquarters in Glasgow and will be the city’s largest single office building.

Our community building has been closed since March and as a result we’ve lost rental income that we rely on. The funding will enable us to buy the equipment we need to start safely running community events outdoors whilst we explore ways of re-opening the building.“The support will also help us meet the extra cleaning costs of keeping our premises Covid-secure and the IT costs in enabling our staff to continue to work from home. As a result we will be able to scale up our response to the pandemic and provide additional support to people who are isolated or suffering from anxiety or hardship.”Virgin Money Foundation’s expansion in Glasgow marks a new chapter in its work to support local groups in and around Virgin Money’s regional heartlands.

Share via Shortlink After years of lagging sales, Westchester County saw the highest number of completed home sales since 1996. (Getty) Unlike its neighbor to the south, when it comes to home sales, Westchester County had a really good 2020.In fact, completed purchases in the New York suburbs in 2020 totaled 6,635, the highest tally in records going back to 1996, Bloomberg News reported, citing a report by brokerage Houlihan Lawrence.The year was an outlier for Westchester County: Prior years showed slacking demand and an oversupply of homes. But the pandemic pushed residents out of New York City — and into the suburbs — in search of more space and amenities.“Everything’s selling,” said Debbie Doern, senior vice president of sales at Houlihan Lawrence. “It’s not easy to get a house right now.”The median price of single-family homes in the fourth quarter increased 20 percent from the same time last year to $738,250, according to a report from Douglas Elliman, compiled byu appraiser Miller Samuel. The increase marked the biggest annual jump since the end of 2002.Low inventory is to blame for the rise in prices. The number of homes for sale at the end of December was down 29 percent from a year prior to 1,299 homes, the fewest recorded since 1994, according to the Elliman report.“Buyers are poised and ready,” the brokerage’s president, Scott Durkin, told Bloomberg. “They’ve got financing in hand, deposits in hand, they’re more forgiving of home inspections, and they’re ready to pounce.”[Bloomberg News] — Sasha JonesRead moreSurvey reveals why employees stay home or return to workApartments, hotel to be added to Moorestown MallMichael Rubin buys Ziel Feldman’s $50M Hamptons mansion TagsDouglas Ellimanhoulihan lawrencewestchester county Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink
