A 2020 stock market crash might have seemed unthinkable a few months ago. But the prospect of exactly that is making the headlines again. Is it likely? The chances might be 50/50 or less, but I’m definitely starting to expect a bear market in 2020.Putting aside global contributions to any upsurge in negative feelings, fears for our future trade relationship with the European Union seem to lie behind the growing domestic gloom. We probably won’t get a good idea of the chances of a decent EU deal until later in the year. So if things are looking bad by the second half, that could be when we see the worst of any downturn.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…I’d expect financial stocks to be hit quite hard, and I’ve recently examined the prospects for Lloyds Banking Group. Lloyds might have pulled out of Europe, but I think it could be in for a tough 2020.Economy slowingUK economic growth ground to a halt in the final quarter of 2019, reflecting the growing uncertainty. And economists have suggested our underlying economic momentum slowed over the year. A poor couple of years could see demand for mortgages and business loans dropping. And that could hit Lloyds and the other banks, and perhaps even threaten their growing dividend yields.Now investors tend to push shares unduly high when times are good. And, conversely, they drag them too far down in darker days. So I’m expecting a good stream of oversold bargain stocks to come our way in 2020.What about the timing? If you buy cheap shares now, won’t you be kicking yourself later in the year if prices fall? Suppose you buy a stock on a 5% dividend yield now. If the price falls 10%, you’ll have missed the chance to lock in an increased 5.6% yield. And a 20% price drop would lift the yield to 6.3%. That difference in yield could make a significant difference to your returns over the next decade or so.TimingBut timing the stock market is near impossible, so I never try. Instead, every time I have a suitable sum to invest, I go for whatever’s at the top of my buy list. My investments get spread out over time, and that evens out the ups and downs.What if you have a lump sum to invest? You’ll have to weigh up the advantages of being fully invested as soon as possible against the risks of piling it all in at a high point. As it happens, I do have a lump sum to invest, released from an old company pension scheme and now in a SIPP.Spread outWith that cash, I’m spreading my investments over the year. I’ll make an investment or two, then get back to my research, then dip into another stock, and so on. That’s an easy approach for me, as it takes me ages to decide I want to buy a stock. And there are very few I’m confident of to buy at any one time.Overall, I’ll watch out for reliable well-covered dividends, and hopefully pick up some good long-term yields in 2020.

It begins with the revelation in the first chapter of Genesis: God created every human being in the Divine Image, male and female reflect that Image together. As Jews, we translate this verse into the extension of dignity to everyone regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, physical abilities, mental capabilities, sexual orientation, and identity. We do not compromise ourselves by treating those who are different or who believe differently with dignity.The second level of interfaith experience is based on the Talmudic teaching, Humanity and God are equal partners in transforming the world from the way it is to the way it needs to be. The Sages were careful to use inclusive language: it is not just the Jewish task to improve the world, but humanity’s. Needless to say, there are different ways to improve the world. We need to understand those with whom we disagree as we move forward towards a common goal.On Shavuot, I shared the insight – based on the Hebrew – that God spoke the Ten Commandments (Decalogue) not to everyone together, but rather to each individual standing at Sinai according to her/his own emotions and sensitivities. Thus, the second focus of revelation is to understand that the people standing at the foot of Mount Sinai heard God’s words in different ways.All too often, people offer simple answers and self-righteously dismiss all others as wrong. I take very seriously the teaching of the 20th-century philosopher Isaiah Berlin: Every difficult, complex problem – in politics, life, or thought – has a simple answer, and that answer is always wrong.Throughout human history, Jews have been the anomaly to someone’s ‘absolute,’ and we have suffered for it. Today, Muslims, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ community, among others, also suffer at the hands of extremism and absolutism. Fundamentalism and simplistic moralism scares us, as well it should. We respond viscerally because whatever reduces truth to a simple absolute, reduces the dignity of others who are created in the Divine Image, and communities who might have heard the message differently.At the conference I attended last month in Abu Dhabi with Muslims and Evangelical Christians, we all agreed that the concept of respectful human relationships is best reflected by the term “multi-faith” (which goes beyond “interfaith”) allowing for diversity to be an integral part of the strategy to reflect the Oneness of God by working together as One, each in our own way.Shabbat Shalom!

Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Two weeks after the abduction of journalist Hayatullah Khan in Pakistan’s northeastern Tribal Areas, his two young sons and daughter have appealed to his kidnappers to free him. In demonstrations by Khan’s family and the Tribal Union of Journalists (TUJ) on 17 December in Mir Ali (in North Waziristan) and today in the city of Peshawar, the authorities were urged to make an effort to save Khan’s life. Reporters Without Borders supported their call.“The kidnappers must heed the appeal of these children who have been without a father since he was taken on 5 December,” the press freedom organisation said. “The federal government must adopt energetic measures to bring this disturbing and mysterious abduction to an end.” Khan’s eight-year-old daughter, Naila Hayat, and her brothers, Hamran, 5, and Fareshta, 6, were at the head of a demonstration by family members and Khan’s colleagues. The children carried a placard with the words: “Give us our father back.”A demonstration by journalists led by TUJ president Sailab Mehsud called on the government to step up its efforts to find Khan alive. “Journalists are the victims of a catastrophic security situation in the Tribal Areas,” he said.The TUJ and the Khyber Union of Journalists (based in the Peshawar region) have joined forces to wage a campaign for Khan’s release and are planning to go to Islamabad. “We will continue to demonstrate until he is free,’ the organisations said.Khan is the North Waziristan correspondent for two dailies, Ausaf and Nation, and a photographer for the European Pressphoto Agency (EPA). There are conflicting claims about the identity and motives of his kidnappers. His family suspect the authorities were behind his abduction. One of his brother told Reporters Without Borders that Khan told him the day before his abduction: “If anything happens to me, the government must held responsible.”A Peshawar province official told a delegation of journalists on 14 December that arrests had been made in the case and that Khan’s release was just a matter of days.Four days before his abduction, Khan investigated the death in North Waziristan of Hamza Rabia, a leading Arab member of Al Qaeda, taking photos which cast doubt on the official account of Rabia’s death and which indicated that he was in fact been killed by a US-made missile.
May 6, 2020 Find out more Organisation CubaAmericas Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders has protested vigorously against a plan by the Cuban authorities to crack down on unauthorised Internet-users by placing a total ban on use of the regular telephone network to get online. They have called on Etecsa, Cuba’s sole telecoms operator “to deploy every technical means to detect and block Internet access” to unauthorised users. Since Internet use in Cuba is banned for the majority of the population, Cubans are forced to use illegal connections. October 12, 2018 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders has protested vigorously against a plan by the Cuban authorities to crack down on unauthorised Internet-users by placing a total ban on use of the regular telephone network to get online. They have called on Etecsa, Cuba’s sole telecoms operator “to deploy every technical means to detect and block Internet access” to unauthorised users. Since Internet use in Cuba is banned for the majority of the population, Cubans are forced to use illegal connections.”We are extremely worried by this new decree which is aimed at tracking down ‘informaticos’, Cubans who managed to get Internet access despite an official ban,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of the international press freedom organisation. “The Internet is one of the few means of getting around the ever present censorship of news and information in this country,”he said.”Since they are unable to monitor the Internet as easily as the newspapers, the government has simply chosen to ban access to the Internet for almost the entire population. Very few countries go as far as this to control the Net,” he added.From 24 January, it will officially forbidden to use the regular telephone network, billed in pesos, to connect to the Internet, except for those specifically allowed to do so by “the person in charge of a body or of a central administration organisation”. The change will not affect foreign companies and organisations that use another network, billed in dollars, for Net access.The decree in fact changes nothing for most ordinary Cubans in that a ban on Internet access is already in place for most of them. The chief objective is to remind them that only people with specific permission can use this media. Many “informaticos” used personal computers, bought on the black market, to connect to the Internet, by pirating normal telephone lines. Under the new law the authorities will track these people down with the help of the sole public provider Etecsa.Cubans can still use cybercafés to get online, but at two euros for quarter of an hour, it is beyond the financial means of almost everyone.

Community News Guloyan shares that they’ve done a couple of events and parties where their presence made a huge impact on the festivities. One of her most unforgettable catering events? “I’ve done a few Indian weddings and those are so much fun. They wanted desserts because they had their Indian cuisine for dinner.

Referring to the Supreme Court’s order allowing transfer of investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death to CBI, the reply states-“It is settled law that two FIRs cannot be registered on the same cause of action. It is a fact that CBI is already investigating the causes relating to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on the basis of a complaint filed by KK Singh, father of the deceased. The CBI is meticulously investigating all the aspects related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. In view of the present situation and order dated 19.08.2020 passed by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, it was expected from the Mumbai Police to forward the complaint received from Ms. Rhea Chakraborty (Respondent No. 2), to the CBI for necessary action, instead of registering an FIR itself.”The central agency further contended that the FIR registered against Sushant’s sisters are bad in law, allegations are mostly presumptive and speculative in nature and can be quashed-“It is submitted that the present FIR has been registered by Mumbai Police in complete disregard to the provisions of section 154 Cr.P.C. Both the Respondent No. 1& Respondent No. 2 were consciously aware that an FIR has been registered by Patna Police to look into the circumstances surrounding the death of Late Sushant Singh Rajput which was transferred to CBI for investigation. The investigation by CBI has also been approved by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India vide judgement dated 19.08.2020. Therefore, registration of another FIR on the same facts and cause of action was neither warranted nor allowed under law. Thus the FIR No. 576 of 2020 is vitiated and bad in law. It is further submitted that in light of the case laws cited by the petitioner in this Para, Mumbai Police was required to follow the procedure laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Jacob Matthew Vs, State of Punjab & Anr. 2005 (6) SCC 1.That in reply to averments made in ground ‘F’ of the petition, it is submitted that it is correct that if the allegations mentioned in the FIR, prima facie, do not constitute any offence or make out a case against the accused, the FIR can be quashed by Constitutional Courts. Pertinently, the allegations levelled in the instant FIR are mostly presumptive and speculative in nature.” In the FIR registered by Bandra Police, it is alleged that Sushant’s sister Priyanka Singh “hatched a conspiracy and obtained false prescription on the letterhead of a government hospital for a banned medicine and administered the same without supervising doses and quantity which may result in a chronic anxiety attack and which resulted in the commission of suicide.”Thus, Meetu Singh and Priyanka Singh were booked under Sections 420, 464, 465, 466, 468, 474, 306 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code.The CBI’s reply also states that there is apparent deviation in the statements made by Rhea Chakraborty which were widely circulated on electronic and print media and the averments mentioned in the complaint submitted by her before Bandra police. The very genesis of the FIR registered at Bandra police station is flawed, the CBI has said.Finally, CBI contends-“It is submitted that the CBI is conducting investigation meticulously and professionally without being hindered by any external factor and would thoroughly look into each and every aspect relating to the death of Late Sushant Singh Rajput in a fair and impartial manner. It is also submitted that if the Respondent No. 1 or Respondent No. 2 had to provide any information regarding the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, the same should have been directly shared with the CBI for necessary action at its end and the registration of the FIR by Bandra Police Station on the said information was not required, however, they chose to register a separate FIR, in the matter.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
