Macroeconomic indicators suggest a recession, leading FTSE 100 investors to wonder what to buy. It is a highly important question since you could either make or break your wealth during this COVID-19 crisis.  Recession fearsThe current downturn is the sharpest one on record. The unemployment rate and contraction of the GDP rate are extremely high. Many highly indebted businesses will probably go bankrupt because of their falling cash inflows. The consumer spending levels will remain under pressure for some time. Economists and epidemiologists debate over how long this crisis will last. But either way the outlook seems to be grim.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, it could also be seen as an investment opportunity. But it is essential to choose potential stocks carefully. FTSE 100 company to avoidMany economies are starting to open up after the COVID-19 lockdown. Many businesses are also starting to operate, more or less as usual. However, airlines, tour operators, and hotels may be the last companies to start working as usual. The summer of 2020 will definitely be a crisis for the industries mentioned above.The most prominent airline company in the FTSE 100 is IAG (LSE:IAG). Even though the lockdown measures will end sooner or later, the company’s sales revenue will probably take several years to recover. This is because a recession always forces consumers to reduce their spending on non-essential goods and services. And air travel is one of them. This long-lasting crisis for the industry will, according to some experts, only likely end by 2023.Meanwhile, IAG CEO Alex Cruz has warned that no state aid is coming for the company. So, it was forced to make more than a quarter of its workforce redundant. It might be true that the company will survive without the government’s rescue package. However, the company will shrink in size. It means that sales revenues and profits will remain quite low. As concerns shareholders, they might not receive dividends for years. Even though I think that betting on IAG might turn out to be highly profitable for brave long-term investors, I’d prefer to buy less risky companies.  Companies to invest inSo, which companies should I buy? Well, in my view, given that interest rates are next to zero around the world, gold and silver miners might be a brilliant alternative. All depends on the investment horizon. The recession will not end tomorrow. Quite a lot of time is needed for macroeconomic indicators to get back to normal. The central banks’ ‘whatever it takes’ attitude suggests that the quantitative easing programmes and the record low interest rates are here to stay for a long time. This is really good for gold and silver prices because they tend to move higher when central banks decrease interest rates.Even though I am bullish on gold and silver, I think that investing in mining companies might be a better alternative than buying the metals themselves. After all, they pay dividends, whereas physical commodities don’t. In my view, Fresnillo, a top Mexican silver producer, and Polymetal, a highly profitable gold miner based in Russia, might do a good job for investors. Both of them pay dividends and their shares move in the same direction as the commodities themselves. Either way, I’d avoid risky companies like IAG and invest in FTSE 100 dividend payers instead.  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.

Waking the giant: Rugby World assesses Toulouse

first_imgMany locals have explained that already on this trip. That must add real pressure to any newcomer? “Massively,” Flood says before explaining again the differences between joining Tigers as a young man and joining Toulouse with 60-odd caps. But much like at training, Flood is relaxed and unencumbered by worry.A check of the watch and the two players realise they may have to push back a backs meeting, but not to stress. Talk turns to Europe and a competition the club are famed for winning. The team do focus on Europe but in Novès’s time they were a bit better at stepping up a gear, emotionally and mentally, when continental fixtures came up. They have had a go in the league this season but losses to Racing, Toulon and Lyon don’t look too sharp. They remain positive.Doussain says: “I always think to myself, ‘If we are level we can win.’ We just keep doing what we do week on week on week. Of course there will be big games and small games…”“You have to ride the emotional tide,” Flood interjects. “If you just put it down on paper, the teams around Toulouse have gotten better.“That’s the same in England. Look at the evolution of English rugby, with them competing with teams in France with much bigger budgets. They worked incredibly hard on the physical side of things because they realised that they needed fit, strong players. Then they realised they needed them on the pitch. So they put more into physiotherapy and how to keep the best 23 blokes on the field. And now their budgets are going up.“So now not only do they have the ability to compete financially – look at Wasps in our pool, who have Kurtley Beale and Danny Cipriani back – but they have the infrastructure. If you’re good enough at keeping the injury level down, getting them back quicker, and now you’ve got the budget, there’s real scope for saying the English system is going pretty well at the moment. That every team is getting better.  The bar is raised higher and higher.”The next generation: Kids train at the Toulouse ground (Pic: Eoin Mundow)“It’s changed,” agrees Doussain. “The standard has gone up. Of course sometimes we haven’t played so well, so that has an impact. We were terrible in Ulster and Saracens (last season) and two seasons before that we lost to Connacht. The quality of other Top 14 teams has gone up and it’s the same in Europe. This has limited the chance of winning it all – there are no longer just three or four teams who can win in Europe.“The most important thing for us is to turn up in Europe. We didn’t really exist last year, finishing fourth in our pool, and then beyond that we haven’t done well for two years. It’s the same in the Top 14, but looking at Europe the next step is to put our foot back down on  the accelerator, say this is who we are, we are Stade Toulousain and we can still operate in Europe.”Flood nods. “We’ll look at this pool and think we’ve got a real chance,” he says. “That isn’t to belittle any other team, because we have to get back and as Jean-Marc says we haven’t existed in Europe for a couple of years so we need to be playing those big teams in those big games and get to the quarters and semis. We need to be in the position to win and be ruthless. I think sometimes we miss that.” There is a sense that a new Toulousain generation, supplemented by supportive foreigners, must do just that – push itself to emulate past glories by forging a new way ahead. The pace of life may be slower here but with the right shove, kick or even string of results, hope abounds that this giant will roar back to its very best.This feature first appeared in the November 2016 edition of the magazine. They’re the most successful team in European history, but Toulouse are due a return to the top table. RW heads to France to find out how… This feature first appeared in the November 2016 edition of the magazine. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS ON THIS late afternoon the wind is only moving the hot air around the back pitches of the Stade Ernest-Wallon. After a tough run in the Top 14 schedule it’s not a time for grimacing, shouting at each other or down-and-ups. They say a Toulousain’s five minutes really adds up to 20. As some picnicking fans doze in the shade, drawling in the local manner as they nasally accent the –ain at the end of their words, lying in quiet reverence as their heroes warm up for their open training session, it is clear this is the somnambulant pace of life in Toulouse.Out of nowhere creeps president Jean-René Bouscatel. We hear “Papa!” as head coach Ugo Mola catches a kick from his young son, who then scampers off round the back of the complex. On the adjacent pitch schoolboys work on their skills, almost to a tot wearing Toulousain red and black. On the main patch, Jean-Baptiste Élissalde orchestrates a run-through of exit strategies without bursting the boys. Gillian Galan runs it up. There’s another kick. The whistle is blown. It all starts over again while a stern William Servat prowls around.As new hero Richie Gray explains in the car park afterwards – the mastodon of a lock is suited and booted and on his way to a “players and partners do” with some prominent locals – Toulouse is a famous club with its own way of doing things. He loves the local lifestyle.Yet in many other parts of the world a long history of winning means that any hiatus on success causes a stir amongst fans and a yearning for change. Toulouse have won four European titles and been kings of France a staggering 19 times. But the giants have not won the Bouclier de Brennus for four years and they haven’t won a European Cup since 2010. Ten domestic wins and every European triumph came under coach Guy Novès in a staggering 22-season reign. He left to become France head coach after the 2015 World Cup and since then the club has tightened its hug around ‘their own’; be it academy products or style.Yet there is a sense from some that it’s time to shift on.Half-backs: Flood and Doussain talk to RW (Pic: Eoin Mundow)“I joined the club at 16,” explains Jean-Marc Doussain, one of a surprising number of four captains at the club. “There’s not been a huge change in culture or an evolution in the club, but there’s been a drip-feeding of players. The big change is that Guy left, so we’ve had around two years of not having him. It’s about us re-evaluating. But every year two or three come in – it’s about them coming into our culture.”Toby Flood is sitting with him at the café table and picks up the thread. “I think there’s more onus on the individuals,” says the English fly-half. “Mola came in and made a few changes and is slowly evaluating where the club is and how he sees us going forward, but as players we have a responsibility to carry that weight as well.“At times it’s very easy as a player to let things pass you by, stand there and watch, and we need to really grab the reins and drive it. It’s important for players like Jean-Marc, and other guys who’ve been at the club for a long time, to take control of that. Because people like him, Galan – okay, we lost guys like Clément Poitrenaud and Vincent Clerc, stalwarts in the culture – but these guys need to be real drivers of what we do now.”There have been no sweeping changes in culture with Guy gone, but Novès spent a lot more time off the field. Mola is hands on and if everyone is to progress, we are informed, then a healthy discussion between players and coaches must continue, rather than orders being passed down. As Flood puts it, cutely: “It’s a board meeting but with one guy making the final decision.”The pair laugh across espresso cups when the political issue of several captains comes up. C’est compliqué. Flood expertly changes tack: “If you look at the progression of my career, when I went to Leicester from Newcastle there were maybe 20,000 captains and they really cared. That was a real eye-opener for me as Leicester were the biggest thing in town at the time – Leicester City have changed that in recent times – but it was a huge shock.The difference makers: The Toulouse players in training (Pic: Eoin Mundow)“Here it’s even bigger. With the history of the club and what they’ve achieved, the people really feel ‘Stade Toulousain’. When things are going well, people are much happier. Every day is like this,” – he gestures around the sun-bleached square with Doussain nodding in silent agreement – “everyone eats outside, you see a lot of people and spend a lot of time integrating with them. You can really feel it when we win. This place is ram-packed with people, they all line up when they bring a trophy, 30-40,000 people in the Capitole, I’ve seen pictures. It’s a real thing.“It took me five months to get used to, not to let the shackles off as such but to grow up here and learn what they’re about. They talk about how they love to bring their own academy players through because they know how they play and operate. Of course they’ll bring in a few foreigners to augment what they do, with bits and pieces, but they’d really prefer those academy guys.”last_img read more

Friday Funnies – Paul Sackey’s astounding rugby knowledge

first_imgFriday Nov 7, 2008 Friday Funnies – Paul Sackey’s astounding rugby knowledge A few weeks back we featured a rather amusing clip of Harlequins and England winger David Strettle on the sports quiz show A Question of Sport . Strettle looked quite foolish as he revealed that his knowledge of rugby isn’t too great. This week, were following up with a clip of his England compatriot, Paul Sackey.Sackey appeared on an earlier edition of the show, joining the fun with the usual comedic exploits of Matt Dawson, and the nutty Phil Tufnell.The home question for Sackey and his team was fairly straight forward if youre a rugby fan who pays attention to the goings on of the rugby world.Sackey clearly had no idea though, and as one of our regulars mentioned on the Strettle post, he seems to be one of those players who treats rugby more like a job than a passion. If that is indeed the case, its perhaps one of the biggest downfalls of professionalism as we know it.His reaction when being told the answer isnt quite as funny as Strettles was, but its the antics of ex Test cricketer Tufnell next to him that we found hilarious. What made the whole thing worse though was that Sackey couldnt even respond to Tufnell’s amusing description of Victor Matfield.All respect to Paul Sackey – on the park hes a great player with loads of electricity. But off the field, in terms of rugby trivia, perhaps the lights are on but nobodys home. :: Related Posts :: Friday Funnies – David Strettle’s astounding rugby knowledge Time: 01:34 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Showik, accused of being a part of a drug cartel and booked under the stringent sections 8 (c) r/w section 20 (b) (ii), 22, 27A, 28, 29 and 30 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in September last year, was granted bail by the Special NDPS Court on December 2, 2020. The NCB has sought cancellation of his bail u/s 439(2) of CrPC on the grounds that there is a financial investigation underway and there are several absconding accused. Showik may try to dispose of properties and assets, nullifying the purpose of the investigation, NCB has alleged. NCB says that after Showik was granted bail, they have arrested the main supplier of charas Mohammed Azam Shaikh, with 5 kg of charas, opium and ecstasy. Separately, “digital analysis, bank and financial data” received also shows his clear involvement in the preparation and execution of crime under NDPS Act, the agency states. “It is further submitted that there are many absconding accused. The links of several accused with the Respondent No 2(Showik) are also being surfaced and therefore even today the investigation is going on. As the case is of commercial quantity and Respondent No 2 (Showik) is part of this and also booked under 27 A of NDPS hence financial investigation is also going on. If the Respondent No 2 (Showik) is on bail he may dispose the properties and assets to nullify the purpose of Financial Investigation. The Respondent No 2 (Showik) may help other suspects in absconding and manipulating and hampering investigation,” NCB’s petition reads. The petition states that the Special Court has wrongly come to the conclusion that the rigors of section 37 of the NDPS Act, related to grant of bail, would not apply to Showik, as he was not concerned with the commercial quantity of drugs allegedly recovered from peddler Anuj Keshwani. The agency said that the HC rejected his earlier application stating he has links with alleged drug peddlers. “It is submitted that once the Hon’ble High Court having come to a conclusion about involvement of the Respondent No. 2 (Showik) and the application of rigors of 37 of the NDPS Act, there was no cogent reason to take a different view, in the absence of any fresh material,” the petition filed though advocate Shreeram Shirsat for the NCB states. The NCB has claimed that co-accused Samuel Miranda has said he would organize weed for Sushant Singh Rajput from September, 2019 to March, 2020 through a contact given by Showik’s friend and Showik has ‘confessed’ to procuring drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput. “The role of Showik is revealed on the basis of statements of accused Dipesh, Samuel Miranda, Rhea Chakraborty, Basit Parihar and Suryadeep. It is revealed that Respondent No. 2 (Showik) procured Ganja for the consumption of Sushant Singh Rajput and particularly on the say of accused Rhea Chakraborty. Thus, he is a part of conspiracy,” the plea states. Even if there is no recovery from an accused, abetment and conspiracy u/s 29 of the NDPS Act cannot be ruled out, the agency has said. NCB also said that the judgement of Tofan Singh v/s State of Tamil Nadu reported in MANU/SC/0797/2020 , which rules that a confessional statement to an investigator would not be admissible as evidence, would not apply to cases of bail. The case will come up for hearing on March 30. Background Showik was arrested by the NCB on September 4, 2020 on the basis of his voluntarily statement and alleged involvement in dealing of illicit drugs. He was booked under Sections 8 (c) r/w section 20 (b) (ii), 22, 27A, 28, 29 and 30 of the NDPS Act. The offences relate to the use and possession of cannabis and psychotropic substances, financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders as well as abetment and criminal conspiracy. Section 27A can attract up to 20 years imprisonment. The Bombay HC granted bail to actor Rhea Chakraborty on October 7, but rejected Showik’s bail application. The NCB has approached the SC against bail granted to Chakraborty. The present drug racket case 16/2020 was filed by the NCB following the registration of a previous case based on chats provided by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The ED was probing a money-laundering angle against Rhea Chakraborty and others on Sushant Singh Rajput’s father’s complaint. No arrests have been made by the ED so farNext Storylast_img read more
