The best chance fell to Ronaldo after Dybala slipped the ball through but Perin was again equal to it.Their resistance was broken five minutes after halftime when Dybala collected the ball just outside the area, slalomed past three defenders and scored with a deflected shot.Seven minutes later, Ronaldo received Miralem Pjanic’s pass just inside the Genoa half, burst forward and, as the home defence backed off, unleashed a ferocious long-range drive for his 24th league goal of the season.He was almost outdone by substitute Costa who curled his shot past Perin from the edge of the area in the 73rd minute.Andrea Pinamonti slipped past Juan Cuadrado and scored from a narrow angle for Genoa’s consolation, the first goal Juventus have conceded in five games in all competitions since the restart of the season.

See all posts by Matthew Dumigan Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. As a first-time investor, the recent news about the turmoil in stock markets can be off-putting. You may be wondering, who in their right mind would start investing now?I would argue that investing for your future has never been so important. Savings rates in Cash ISAs are atrocious, and you can’t rely on the state pension to give you a financially stress-free retirement.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…Combine this with university debt, a 2% inflation rate, and rising house prices, and the financial outlook for millennials looks rather bleak. That’s why investing has never been so important for achieving financial freedom. Here’s what I’d do right now.Invest in UK companiesTaking the plunge and making your first investment is an exciting venture. That doesn’t mean it’s simple though.With thousands of stocks, ETFs, and mutual funds to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start.One simple way you could begin is with a lump-sum investment in the FTSE 100 index. This provides instant diversification across a range of sectors. What’s more, the index’s overall performance often reflects the health of the UK economy. Ultimately, a FTSE 100 tracker fund is a solid choice for first-time investors looking to build a retirement fund without too much risk.If you’d prefer more control over your investments, selecting individual UK stocks is an option. Over the long term, good quality companies tend to expand and grow their businesses, leading to an increase in the share price over time.Think Unilever, GlaxoSmithKline,or Tesco,to name a few. These companies each have a big share of their respective markets, strong balance sheets, and prospects for future growth.On top of this, many firms pay dividends to investors simply for owning shares in the company. If re-invested, these can provide a platform for even bigger returns over the long term.Have a long-term strategyI think it’s of paramount importance to have a long-term horizon when it comes to investing. Bumper returns rarely come overnight.Instead, holding a position in quality companies for as long as possible has proved to be a dominant strategy for many investors.What’s more, having a long-term horizon dampens the effects of a market crash on your investments. This comes as you have the time to simply ride out the peaks and troughs of the market.For example, if you’re investing for at least the next 5 to 10 years, this market crash shouldn’t be anything to worry about. The stock market has always recovered after crashes in the past.Reap the rewardsInvesting for the long-term allows for the magic of compounding to take effect. Let’s look at some hypothetical examples:Assuming an annual growth rate of 8%, setting aside just £150 a month to invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA would result in your investments being worth £200,000 after 30 years.But how about this… If you were to begin saving £250 each month, assuming an annual growth rate of 8%, in 40 years’ time your investment would be worth £1,000,000!Becoming a millionaire really is that easy. As a first-time investor, don’t miss out on the opportunity that this market crash brings to grow wealth over time. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shareslast_img read more

How I’d invest £500 a month in an ISA from today to capitalise on the FTSE 100’s rebound

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Peter Stephens | Thursday, 4th June, 2020 Investing £500, or any other amount, in a Stocks and Shares ISA on a regular basis may seem unwise after the FTSE 100’s recent market crash. Although the index has rebounded from its first quarter lows, it continues to trade around 20% down on its price level from the start of 2020.Moreover, the index faces a highly uncertain period. And that could cause many investors to decide on lower-risk opportunities, such as a Cash ISA.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…However, by investing regularly in high-quality FTSE 100 stocks over the long run in a tax-efficient account such as an ISA, you could significantly improve your financial outlook.FTSE 100 diversificationPerhaps the most important step to take when buying FTSE 100 shares is to diversify. At present, it’s difficult to know exactly what the post-coronavirus economy will look like. Consumer habits may have changed forever. Or they may quickly return to their previous trends.Therefore, investors should buy a range of companies that operate in multiple industries. That way they can reduce their risk of buying companies that have outdated business models.Likewise, buying stocks that operate in different economies could be a shrewd move. Some countries may be hit less hard by coronavirus than others. That could mean having exposure to a range of regions helps to reduce your overall risks and improves your long-term returns.Financially-sound businessesInvesting in FTSE 100 companies with strong balance sheets and solid market positions could enable you to capitalise on the index’s likely rebound. They may be well placed to survive a period of lower sales and profitability. That could help them to extend their market positions at the expense of weaker rivals.Through analysing company accounts and assessing areas, such as debt levels, interest cover and free cash flow, it’s possible to determine which businesses may be relatively strong. They may trade on premium valuations as a result of their relatively stable outlooks. But paying a higher price for a quality business could be worthwhile in the long run, due to its capacity to deliver higher returns.A long-term outlookInvesting regularly in FTSE 100 shares can be a disheartening experience if they experience difficult periods. With the world economy facing a major recession, it would be unsurprising for investors to experience paper losses in the short run.However, maintaining a regular investment during such periods can improve your returns. It allows you to buy stocks while they trade on even lower valuations. And that can lead to higher capital growth over the long run.The FTSE 100 has always recovered from its downturns to post new record highs. So adopting a long-term outlook for your portfolio’s returns could enable you to more easily capitalise on challenging periods.History has shown that they’ve usually been the most logical times to buy high-quality businesses. 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.

Foster youth learn about careers in law enforcement

Next the group drove 1.5 miles to the Gilliam Training facility on Cleveland street where officers demonstrated the abilities of two of Apopka’s K9 officers, Valor and Jet.The group then moved over to the Apopka’s MRAP SWAT vehicle.Inside the training building Detective Steven Landry made a presentation describing the duties of police detectives.  The youth were then given an overview of how crime scene investigative work actually happens.  Everyone was surprised to learn that it took days and weeks, not minutes for crime scene evidence to be analyzed.So much for those TV crime shows!Everyone then had an opportunity to try their hand at lifting fingerprints from a mock crime scene.The day ended with a demonstration of APD’s Fire Arm Training Simulator (FATS). FATS is a tool used by APD to train officers in marksmanship and judgement.  The simulator uses video game technology to put the officer into a real-life scenario where split-second life or death decisions must be made.The event was organized by Community Based Care of Central Florida Youth Services in conjunction with Goodwill Industries and City of Life Foundation. It was part of a job shadow series that gives youth in foster care the chance to experience a wide variety of occupations. Previous job shadow events have been hosted at EA Sports, Florida Hospital and Rosen Hotels.As part of their youth services programs, Community Based Care of Central Florida partners with universities, businesses, and child welfare agencies to make a long-term investment in youth that can change the course of their lives, taking them from abuse and neglect to academic achievement and self-sufficiency.

Askeaton intimidation ‘has gone too far’

first_imgWhatsApp Linkedin NewsLocal NewsAskeaton intimidation ‘has gone too far’By admin – October 15, 2009 754 Facebook Advertisement Previous articleLimerick gangs continue Youtube feudNext articleReported crime down in city and county admincenter_img Print Twitter Claim that victims fearful of reporting incidents to GardaiTHOSE experiencing intimidation and threatening behaviour in Askeaton, are being asked to report all incidents to the police in order to tackle ongoing issues there.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Councillor Kevin Sheahan, who is from the area, told this newspaper: “The feeling in the town is that intimidation of residents has gone too far and can no longer be tolerated”.He added: “I would like to use the medium of the Limerick Post to address the people and urge them to immediately report any incidents of anti-social behaviour they may have experienced, so this situation can be combated”.He added that anyone who was fearful of contacting the guards directly, could have a statement written up in the presence of a solicitor and sent in.“A small section of the community are causing undue concern to the vast majority with their behaviour”, said the councillor. “I was amazed at how evident the effects of this were when I was canvassing for the local elections.“I have been in constant contact with Supt. Joe Roe in Askeaton, and he is being most co-operative. A joint effort between the community and the gardaí is necessary to combat the situation, as officials hands are tied if incidents go unreported”.The councillor explained that many assaults on individuals and attacks on homes were occurring in the town on a regular basis, particularly on Saturday nights.He added that victims were fearful of reporting incidents to gardaí, in case they became further targeted by offenders, claiming that rural residents no longer had any relationship with gardaí.“My firm view is that locals in rural towns and villages no longer have a relationship with guards that they once would have had. They don’t feel familiar or confident enough in them to confide in. I would urge Supt. Roe to work on developing these relations within the community”.Addressing the council’s role, he concluded: “I have spoken to senior council officials about this issue, and they are adamant that if witnesses come forward and make statements, they will take the matter in hand and bring perpetrators to court. But the real issue is getting people to report all incidents, otherwise the council too are powerless”.He raised the issue again at this month’s meeting of the Joint Policing Committee, with a view to acquiring an increased Garda presence in Askeaton, primarily on Saturday nights. However, was informed that no resources were available. Emaillast_img read more

Press release: Safeguarding Summit 2018: Global aid community to take action against sexual predators

first_img learning more quickly in future, as new evidence and opportunities emerge. preventing sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment from happening in the first place; Let there be no doubt this international summit was not about gathering promises to tinker around the edges. This is about setting in place a fundamental rewrite, from root to branch, of the way the aid sector operates. It is incredibly important that as we work to tackle sexual exploitation and abuse in the aid sector we put the voices of victims and survivors first. Which is why we dedicated the first half of the day to listening to their accounts and hearing from those on the frontline. Telephone 020 7023 0600 This is not the end of the process. There is still a huge amount of work to do but these commitments and the new tools we have outlined today send a message to perpetrators – your time is up, there is nowhere to hide. Email [email protected] a new Disclosure of Misconduct Scheme which will prevent known perpetrators moving around undetected – at least 15 organisations have signed up to this so far, amounting to approximately 50,000 staff worldwide; the Disasters Emergency Committee announcing that it will explore with members joint complaint-handling systems for communities raising concerns in future emergencies, along with a review of how they respond to community feedback, including in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh; and all donors and other participants committing to having at least one named senior level champion accountable for work on safeguarding issues and to encourage annual discussions at board level. DFID also announced a number of measures today. ENDS removing and addressing barriers to reporting sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment; and The Department for International Development (DFID) has today committed £20 million in research funding to improve understanding of the risks people affected by conflict face, including those subjected to sexual exploitation.The research will make a valuable contribution in helping to determine what can be done to avoid and mitigate the risks associated with exploitation and harm and what we all can do to effectively safeguard people who are trusting us to care for them.After the summit, International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt said: An Interpol pilot to improve background checks on staff who work in the aid sector and provide advice to employers on international vetting and identifying high-risk individuals. This will also lead to better information sharing across borders and help close the net on predators who are using the aid sector as a cover to abuse and exploit. Support for NGOs to test a new passport for aid workers to prove an individual’s identity, provide background information and vetting status. DFID and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will be supporting the development of a statement of victims’ rights. This statement will allow people to understand their rights, and to have confidence that they can find help if those rights are threatened or violated. General media queries (24 hours) International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt today (Thursday 18 October) galvanised the support of more than 500 delegates from across the international aid community to commit to a “root to branch” change in the way the sector operates.At the landmark International summit, Ms Mordaunt welcomed delegates from the United Nations, World Bank Group, international financial institutions, research organisations, survivors and NGOs who all agreed to sign up to tough global standards to stop sexual predators abusing vulnerable people around the world.All the major international donors – covering 90 per cent of global aid – today committed to worldwide standards on the prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse. These standards cover ethical behaviour, recruitment and complaints processes.They will be backed up by stronger due diligence processes, better project monitoring, and tougher language in funding agreements.Donors will also publish relevant information about allegations and confirmed cases and will be subject to regular independent review by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.The commitments announced by different groups representing the sector focused on four key themes: The summit has also seen major commitments from the sector including: If you have an urgent media query, please email the DFID Media Team on [email protected]gov.uk in the first instance and we will respond as soon as possible. pledging to listen to those who have been affected;last_img read more
