Overall, we therefore expect the new regulations to lead to an increase in the use of alternative risk transfer products, in particular by those companies who are using internal models to assess their capital position,” she added.Top reinsurers such as Munich Re, Hannover Re and Swiss Re expect sales to rise as insurance companies buy risk cover from them to help offset Solvency II’s more stringent capital requirements.

Here’s why a stock market crash could happen again! And this is what I’d buy

first_img Image source: Getty Images There’s something to be said for investor optimism. The FTSE 100 index has closed at 6,000+ levels in the last nine trading sessions. Further, it has crossed the 6,500 mark as I write, in today’s trading. To put this in context, these are pre-pandemic levels. So far, so good. But I’m not ready to throw caution to the winds, at least not yet. I think there are still risks to financial markets. These could trigger another stock market crash.Easing lockdowns too soonA key risk is that of easing the lockdown too soon. It’s a catch-22 situation. If the lockdowns aren’t eased, a widespread hit to business and incomes is likely. If they are eased too soon, we run the risk of a second round of coronavirus infections and another stock market crash. Recent experiences from Asia underline the plausibility of this. 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…Slow pickup in economy and the risk of a stock market crashI think it’s also likely that even after the lockdowns are lifted and the world is back to business, there will be slow pickup in economic activity. People may be wary on their own accord, which could slow their return to public activities. Tourism-related companies as well as pubs and restaurants could suffer from this.Also, businesses may be cautious in hiring and consumers in spending until confidence in economic expansion returns. As a result, the spurt in activity seen as the lockdowns are eased could taper off quite quickly and another stock market crash could happen.Anti-globalisation waveTepid economic activity is especially likely to happen, if globalisation loses even more favour than it already has, after the Covid-19 crisis. Talks have begun again between the UK and the EU, which may well result in a no-deal Brexit. US-China tensions have only escalated because of the pandemic. With the biggest economies in the world at loggerheads, I think it’s very likely that global growth will be negatively impacted in the foreseeable future.Preparing for another stock market crashWith this risky backdrop, as an investor I’m thinking about where I should put my money if a stock market crash happens. I see two options. The first and most obvious one is to invest in fast-rising healthcare and pharmaceutical stocks. They have run up a lot in the past few months, and their prospects seem bright. AstraZeneca is one example of this. At the other end of the spectrum, I’d consider stocks that have been unjustifiably hammered because their business suffered most from lockdowns. These include aviation stocks like easyJet and IAG.They have started rising in the past days, but I wager they’d continue to be volatile in these uncertain times. I’d buy them if and when the stock market crash happens. Here’s why a stock market crash could happen again! And this is what I’d buy Manika Premsingh has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Watch: The Brodie Retallick dummy that fools the cameras

first_img Clean through: Brodie Retallick runs in his try against Australia in Sydney (Getty Images) All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick’s dummy in the lead-up to his try against Australia even had the cameraperson going the wrong way Retallick was playing his first Test since September 2017 and talked through his try with All Blacks TV:Scrum-half Aaron Smith, debutant centre Jack Goodhue, fly-half Barrett and Naholo (two) joined Retallick in a touching down against the Wallabies as the All Blacks look to win a third successive Rugby Championship title.In fact, New Zealand have won all but one of the Rugby Championships since Argentina made it a foursome in 2012. They missed out on the title in 2015 when Australia triumphed in the condensed format used in World Cup years, but still retained the Bledisloe Cup.Related: 2018 Rugby Championship fixturesThey meet Australia in the second of their three Bledisloe Cup clashes at Eden Park on Saturday and the Wallabies will need to win that match to have any chance of reclaiming the giant trophy for the first time since 2002. If they do that, they would also become the first team to beat New Zealand at Eden Park since France in 1994. The Brodie Retallick dummy that fools the camerasBrodie Retallick galloped over for a try in New Zealand’s 38-13 win over Australia thanks to a dummy that was so good even the cameraperson was convinced!The All Blacks lock scored one of six New Zealand tries as they opened their Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup defence with a comfortable victory in Sydney.Retallick’s second-row partner Sam Whitelock was the one winning plaudits before the game as he made his 100th Test appearance for the All Blacks, but it was the 2014 World Rugby Player of the Year earning the cheers midway through the second half.It was in the 63rd minute that Retallick was given the ball in the wide channel by Beauden Barrett and he not only fooled Wallaby fly-half Bernard Foley into thinking he was going to pass to Waisake Naholo on the wing but the cameraperson too.Irish journalist Murray Kinsella captured the moment when Retallick threw his dummy in these tweets… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS When your dummy’s so good the camera buys it. pic.twitter.com/WB8bgDdQFG— Murray Kinsella (@Murray_Kinsella) August 20, 2018 This year’s third Bledisloe Cup tie, which is not part of the Rugby Championship, will be played in Yokohama on 27 October.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Pentagon warships target Peoples’ Korea

first_imgThe nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson carrying huge fleet of fighter jets arrives in South Korea. More than 80 aircraft, including the fighter aircraft F/A-18F Super Hornet, the E-2C Hawkeye and the carrier-based EA-18G Growler are on board the super carrier.April 9 — Yesterday, the Pentagon rerouted the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, along with three guided-missile destroyers and cruisers headed to Australia, and ordered them instead to waters off the Korean peninsula.The redeployment of the warships comes one week after the conclusion of a monthlong, massive military exercise, called Foal Eagle by the Pentagon, that involved some 30,000 troops from the U.S. and up to 300,000 from south Korea in a simulated invasion of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (north Korea). It’s openly stated goal was to rehearse the destruction of the north Korean government — in other words, “regime change.”This is the kind of intense military pressure U.S. imperialism has exerted on the leaders of the DPRK ever since a revolutionary guerrilla army there liberated the northern half of Korea from Japanese colonial rule at the end of World War II.Korea, which traces its history back 5,000 years, has been divided ever since 1945 by the U.S. military occupation of the south.From 1950 to 1953, the U.S. imperialists tried to destroy the socialist government in the north, sending almost 6 million U.S. soldiers and dropping more bombs on Korea than it had in the entire war against Japan. The Koreans took terrible losses, but they fought the U.S. to a standstill — the first country to ever do so.Now, Washington is talking once again of a war on Korea. The excuse? The DPRK has been arming itself with nuclear weapons and missiles — precisely in order to ward off another U.S. attack.Resistance to imperialist ‘regime change’The lessons of the last 15 years have not been lost on the Koreans. They have seen how the U.S. has targeted country after country for “regime change,” making phony allegations in order to cover its totally illegal aggressions.Remember the claims that Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction” leading up to the U.S. invasion and takeover of that country? Total lies, as even the politicians here have had to admit. The same was true of Libya, once the most prosperous country in Africa and today in ruins. And Yugoslavia, torn into small states because it didn’t have the weapons to defend itself.Now Syria is the target, and the Trump administration just broke international law by firing cruise missiles into that country with no warning, no evidence for its claims that Syria had attacked its own people with nerve gas, no chance for an investigation and not even a fig leaf authorization from Congress to launch a military attack.The Koreans are determined not to let what has happened to these countries happen to them. If anyone has a right to nuclear weapons, it is the DPRK. After what the U.S. did to them in the 1950s, they would be foolish indeed not to arm themselves against another devastating war.They have seen the U.S. just complete the installation of an anti-missile system in the south of Korea that is touted as a “defensive” measure, but is in fact another sign that the Pentagon wants to be able to attack the north without the DPRK being able to retaliate.The people of south Korea realize the dangers inherent in the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system and have been demonstrating every day against it.What imperialism is afraid ofWhat are the U.S. imperialists really afraid of? It is that the people of both north and south Korea are moving to overcome the pressures from abroad that have divided them.Right now, the former president of south Korea, Park Geun-hye, is sitting in a jail cell after massive demonstrations by millions of south Koreans succeeded in having her impeached and removed from office for taking bribes from south Korea’s biggest corporations. She is the daughter of an earlier president, Gen. Park Chung-hye, who seized power through a military coup. They both have had the blessings of the U.S. occupiers while earning the hatred of the people, especially the working class.In one month, south Korea is slated to hold an election for a new president, and the front runner, Moon Jae-in, wants to ease tensions with the north. He also says he will review the validity of the decision to install the U.S.’s THAAD missile-defense system, which threatens China as well as the DPRK.That the warmakers chose the very moment of Trump’s meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping to carry out the missile attack on Syria has already been interpreted by the capitalist media here as a warning to China not to interfere if the U.S. treats the DPRK in the same way.But the DPRK has nuclear weapons. And it is telling the U.S. in no uncertain terms that it will use them if attacked.The many millions who have demonstrated against Trump and his reactionary politics must be made aware of this highly dangerous situation — especially because Trump is now being praised by both Republicans and Democrats for his criminal attack on Syria.U.S. out of Korea!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Shared by thousands of people on Twitter, it also accuses the BBC of pursuing an editorial policy that is “against the army and the government.” The surnames, first names, jobs and Twitter account details of ten BBC Urdu journalists were posted online at the same time as the video.

I’m being bombarded because of my opinions. This online vilification is part of a grand design to silence professional and independent journalists.” Organisation News “Calling for journalists to be murdered, with the aim of intimidating and silencing anyone critical of the authorities, is completely unacceptable. We urge the federal government to disown such calls, and we ask the prosecutor’s office to initiate proceedings against all those responsible for these threats.” Threats were also made against Pakistani journalists working for The Independent in late December after its Urdu website posted a story about the deaths of four Pakistani soldiers in a helicopter crash. They were criticized for not referring to the dead soldiers as “martyrs” – the term that the Pakistani armed forces try to impose in such cases.

(Courtesy photo)After watching a viral video of the owner of a Pasadena laundromat caught on camera berating a woman for having a Black Lives Matter sign on her car, a group of friends decided to come together and build generational wealth. Buy The Block, is an investment group focused on buying homes throughout the San Gabriel Valley.Realtor Jacqueline Kuykendall, who founded the group with her friends, told SpectrumNews1 she believes more people in the Black community need to invest in property. Kuykendall said she sees the disparity first hand because she works in the real estate industry.Kuykendall saw Black real estate ownership first hand as she was growing up. Her grandparents had rental properties which inspired her to enter the real estate business.“We hope that it will give people that sense of ownership, even if it’s a small investment that you can say, see that building right there? I own a piece of that. “We want to be able to be in the community and impact the community in both ways, by being business owners and then have other people they can join in on it. And I feel like that inspires people to want to go bigger for themselves.”“We started our Facebook group. We had people ask questions and how they could be involved. We got an LLC. So we got that started. We opened up a business account and we really wanted to use the crowdfunding sites, you know, raise money and be able to purchase a property. What we found was those crowdfunding sites take 25 to 20 percent off the top.“We didn’t like that model, but we began looking into efforts into having our own crowdfunding site to be able to, you know, we really want to own something. We want to own it. We don’t want to give it away to another business. We want to make sure we’re in compliance with any FCC rules and things like that when we’re collecting crowdfunding money. Right now that’s where we are. We have to put up the money ourselves and hopefully be able to bring other people that in as equity crowdfunded.”The group wants to first purchase a multi-unit property by the end of the year for about $1.5 million.“We really want it to be a community effort,” said Tai Samuels. “We really want people to have an equity share of the business. “That’s why it’s taking us a little longer than we initially anticipated because we want to do it right.”Samuels said the group is committed to making sure that people are given what the group says they are going to give them.“People actually get a paycheck every quarter of their shareholder earnings is really what we want to be able to do. And the way it’s marketed is really, it’s a little bit higher yield than you would get if you put your money in a savings account,” she said.“Because of the experience that we have with the real estate market, we’re making sure the purchases that we make are going to be profitable.” CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

Juliette gives a little back to Limerick breast cancer clinic

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Email TAGSGiving A Little BackJuliette O’ConnelllimerickSymptomatic Breast Clinic at the University Hospital Limerick Linkedin Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Twitter Liam Hayes and Juliette O’Connell, organisers of the ‘Giving a Little Back’ fundraiser, being presented with a bike for their raffle by Paul Gammell of Kilmallock CyclesINSPIRATIONAL County Limerick woman Juliette O’Connell will get on her bike this weekend to give a little back to breast cancer care.The mother-of-three from Kilteely will celebrate two years free of cancer by taking part in ‘Giving A Little Back’, a charity event in Herbertstown this Sunday, October 5 in aid of breast cancer care.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up When 43 year-old Juliette first discovered a rash on her left breast two years ago, she had just completed an 80km cycle and thought nothing of it.However, after visiting her local pharmacist some days later, she was advised to see her GP and later sent for diagnostic tests. It was then that the cancer was detected.“I lived a healthy lifestyle and enjoyed life. I’m very fit and active, so I wasn’t expecting the devastating bombshell that landed that day. I remember being very angry. It was like a dream. I thought I was on candid camera,” Juliette recalls.“I had to have six doses of chemo and the worst day for me was when I lost my hair. Like every woman, I love my hair. I would wash it and straighten it every day. I cut it short when it started to come out, so that was a very dark moment for me,” she said.Juliette is hugely philosophical about her battle with cancer and the loss of her breast. She sees it as a traumatic experience that ultimately gave her back her life.“When they took the breast it felt like the cancer was gone at that point. For my children I felt grateful and tried to remain positive. You have to look forward. I said to myself I am going to get better to make sure I’m around for my children. It was devastating but life goes on,” she said.A member of Southside Wheely Wheelers cycling club in Kilmallock, Juliette is a keen cyclist and runner.Last year the ‘Giving a Little Back’ event raised €3,000 for the new Symptomatic Breast Clinic at the University Hospital Limerick.“It would be great if we could raise the same amount or more this year. All the money will go to the Breast Clinic in the Regional Hospital and I really can’t commend all the doctors and nurses and even attendants enough out there enough,” she concluded.Sunday’s event includes a 60km cycle and 8km run/walk/cycle.
