3 warning signs I’m watching for to predict another stock market crash

first_img Jonathan Smith | Tuesday, 16th March, 2021 3 warning signs I’m watching for to predict another stock market crash “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It’s almost a year to the day when we hit the bottom of the 2020 stock market crash. It’s easy to look back with the benefit of hindsight, a year on. At the time, nobody knew whether the FTSE 100 was going to fall another 10% or even more. Will it happen again? Although the stock market crash caught some by surprise, there are some warning signs that I can look at to try and gauge if another stock market crash is on the way. Valuations and debt levelsThe valuation of a company is one sign. Now, I can’t just look at one company and say that due to the price-to-earnings ratio, the entire stock market could crash. But I can look at the average ratio across the FTSE All Share index and get a good idea. At the moment, the FTSE All Share average P/E ratio is around 21. The average over the past 10 years is around 17. If the ratio gets very high, it leads me to conclude that the market is overvalued and could be due a correction.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…It does look like valuations are above average at the moment, but not drastically enough to suggest a 25% stock market crash to bring about a fair rebalancing. And of course, while this warning sign of high P/E ratios is useful, it doesn’t account for surprise events such as a global pandemic. Last year, valuations didn’t look stretched, but we still saw a market crash.Another warning sign is the amount of debt the companies have. If I’m looking at one company, I can use the debt-to-equity ratio. For the whole market, it’s a little harder to get an accurate figure. So this sign is one I need to look out for as I’m researching individual companies. I’ve seen a lot of FTSE 100 companies increase debt over the past year due to the pandemic. But that was unavoidable for many. Higher debt levels means more constraints for businesses, as they need to pay back the lender (with interest). If these levels get out of control, a company could go bust.Market crash warning signs, but not flashing right nowAs someone who buys stocks, it might not seen too logical to spend time looking at the bond markets. But bond yields give me a good indication about the future direction of stocks. Higher yields mean investors think interest rates will rise. So a warning sign for me is the rising yields that we’ve started to see in the UK. If they continue to rise, I think we could see a crash in some form. Higher rates ultimately mean a higher cost of borrowing for corporates.None of the above signs are out of control, so I don’t see a stock market crash happening in the near future.As a result, I’ll continue to stick to buying stocks that I believe have good long-term potential. Even with a crash, a good quality company should be able to ride it out in the long run. In fact, by investing small amounts regularly, I’ll be able to bring my average buying price lower if we do see a crash.Until more of the warning signs start flashing red, I feel comfortable continuing on my investing strategy.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Editors’ note: A year ago today, Oct. 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy set to reeling a large part of the East Coast of the United States. At least 147 people died in the Atlantic basin because of the storm; of that number 72 were killed in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States. Sandy caused an estimated $65.7 billion in damage, including destroying or damaging 650,000 homes and damaging hundreds of thousands of businesses. Episcopal News Service invited seven people to reflect on their experience of Sandy, what lessons they and their faith communities learned and what challenges they still face. All seven reflections are available here.[Episcopal News Service] After Hurricane Sandy ripped through Staten Island, destroying about a quarter of the island, there was an enormous outpouring of kindness and compassion from the community. Thousands of people whose homes were spared the destruction of Sandy came to the aid of their neighbors who lost everything. Young and old showed up to help clean streets, homes, beaches and parks. People realized that whether or not their home was damaged they were still part of this storm and it served as a catalyst to really bring everyone together with a common purpose of rebuilding community.This pulling together led to the creation of the Long Term Recovery Organization, a collaboration of over 80 organizations to better serve the Staten Island community throughout the process of recovery. This organization is an attempt to capitalize on the idea that things get done better together than apart.— Darrell Hayes is the Diocese of New York’s disaster recovery coordinator.It was remarkable to see how within six months a sense of normalcy returned due to the hard work and collaboration of many organizations. And, although the most visible destruction of Sandy has been removed – debris, boats on the streets, houses that were scattered across fields – the situation is still desperate for many people. There are still hundreds of homes that need to be rebuilt.It has been disheartening to see so many homeowners having to fight insurance companies to collect from their insurance policies. Many people have been told they weren’t covered by their polices due to technicalities. I have spoken to many homeowners that were not compensated fairly by their insurance companies and are left to rebuild their entire home with little or no money. Despite the lackluster response of the government and the insurance industry, Staten Island is recovering. Through the generosity of many disaster response programs like the Episcopal Church and other non-profit organizations, the homeowners have found some hope with rebuilding their lives.Beyond the immense challenge of rebuilding, homeowners also have the looming challenge of figuring out how to afford to raise their homes the required 10 to 15 feet that the government and insurance companies will be requiring in order for them to qualify for future insurance coverage. It will cost thousands of dollars that many simply don’t have, in addition to the long term increase in cost of flood insurance.While many homeowners are still facing a variety of challenges, the community also faces challenges of maintaining togetherness to see everyone to complete recovery. This community has withstood so much and needs to keep working together to ensure that the character of the neighborhoods remains intact. As time moves forward and Sandy is replaced by more immediate and visible disasters the work of the disaster response organizations becomes even more important. While many challenges remain, the community of Staten Island holds onto hope while moving everyday towards recovery.If anyone is interested in volunteering with the rebuilding effort please send an email to [email protected] or call us at 347-942-3787.— Darrell Hayes is the Diocese of New York’s (http://www.dioceseny.org/) disaster recovery coordinator.

The Canyon House. The owners (Ken Campbell, a professor of veterinary Physiology at Washington State University and his spouse Jean Campbell, an attorney) wanted a year-round retreat “to cultivate the spiritual aspects in the trinity of human, fish, and river” (their words).  A place to write, sleep, talk, eat, read, fish, cleanse, garden and wander……. away from their work in Pullman, Washington – 50 miles from the site. Also, they wanted a wilderness place for their grandchildren to visit.Site:  40 acres on the southern side of the Clearwater River canyon – 10 miles upstream from Lewiston, Idaho.Save this picture!© Art GriceSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Art GriceIntentions:  The retreat program was divided into two buildings: “the bunkhouse” is settled into a ravine along a seasonal stream and “the studio house” is perched on a finger ridge where a slope of bunch grass and Idaho fescue meet a Ponderosa Pine forest about 300 feet above the Clearwater River.  The program was separated to encourage wanderings on the site and to create a triad of destinations…. the third destination is a perfectly shaped basalt knoll that provides a commanding observation point of the canyon. We resisted siting the house there, as it seemed appropriate to let it remain an “outside place”.  The location of the studio house was determined by where you would have the best fish sighting. To use the owner’s words, “to mark the holding spot of steelhead for 200 yards in the fishy looking run along the river’s south bank”.Save this picture!© Art GriceThe form of the studio house is a simple rectangular box inserted into a moment resisting wooden frame. The frame and box follow the ridge slope and a bridge extension provides access to path that leads to the bunkhouse. The west side of the frame is a brise-soleil that provides access for window washing and support for removable perforated sliding panels- for shading and wind protection.  On the east side, the frame supports decks and a screened porch with an outside shower. Strategically placed operable windows on all four sides of the studio house allow updraft ventilation as summer temperatures in the canyon often reach over 100 degrees. Transparency increases (amount of glass) as the building steps down the slope toward the river… in a sense, giving the illusion that it is “taking off” from the ridge. The “lines” of the studio house contrasts the 30% slope of the site that is mirrored by the strong roof incline with the orthogonal frame of strong verticals and horizontals (a distant derivative of some of the mining structures in the canyon).Save this picture!SectionsWhere the studio house is about exposure/transparency (windstorms often blast the canyon with 70mph gusts), the bunkhouse is a place to seek refuge.  Tucked into the folds of a ravine about 300 yards away from the studio house, its east and west facades have small windows that frame views of microenvironments – a rock fall, a Hawthorne thicket, etc….. The south wall is entirely glazed and opens to a walled terrace built into the hillside with a stair that leads you up the ravine and out of the canyon. The north wall has an inclined “earth- sky window” for watching the soaring bird life and river below.Save this picture!© Art GriceProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Line Lofts / SPF: architectsSelected ProjectsFrancis Kéré to Design New Pine Log Pavilion for Tippet Rise Art CenterArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officePaul HirzelOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJuliaettaUnited StatesPublished on May 17, 2018Cite: “Canyon House / Paul Hirzel” 17 May 2018.

Digital economy bill would turn website hosts into censors and end e-mail privacy

first_img January 9, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Digital economy bill would turn website hosts into censors and end e-mail privacy to go further Reporters Without Borders today appealed to the senate to amend the digital economy bill passed on second reading by the national assembly yesterday, so that the commercial companies that host websites do not have to act as Internet censors and decide if online content is legal, and so that there is no threat to the confidentiality of e-mail. The bill was presented by industry minister Nicole Fontaine.”The digital economy bill is an incoherent hodgepodge which even Internet professionals are hard put to understand,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “The jumble of articles approved by the national assembly representatives include measures that are very worrying for online free expression,” Ménard warned. “We support regulating the Internet, but we think this bill would violate freedoms and obstruct the Internet’s development,” he added.Article 2 of the bill, about the responsibilities of Internet technical service providers, is particularly worrying. It says service providers are responsible the content of the webpages on the sites they host. Hosts would become liable under common law of they did not “act promptly” to block content “after becoming aware of their unlawful nature.”But how are service providers supposed to decide whether or not content is lawful? Only judges are qualified to do this in France. Internet users would be able to demand the immediate withdrawal of content they consider unlawful. Website hosts – who oppose the bill – would be forced to censor any content likely to deemed unlawful for fear of being found criminally liable, with penalties of up to a year in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros for the manager of a service provider.The bill’s advocates argue that website hosts would be protected by a clause in the bill making improper accusations of illegality punishable by a year in prison and a fine of 15,000 euros. Nonetheless, legal decisions would still have to me taken by commercial companies, and they are not qualified to do this.The elimination of the concept of “private correspondence” in the definition of e-mail also poses a problem. Reporters Without Borders recognises the need for legislation on e-mail, above all to combat spam. But the Ollier amendment, jettisoning all mention of “private correspondence” outright, is a radical solution likely to threaten e-mail confidentiality. In an effort to combat “pirate” file exchanges (of music and film), the bill eliminates a key safeguard against e-mail surveillance. Socialist parliamentarian Patrick Bloche said: “a Pandora’s box has been opened … (and) I’m not sure if it’s a victory for the fight against piracy.”Jurists also need to look at another amendment which the national assembly made to the bill. The right to use the Internet, until now considered part of the right to radio and TV communication (under the freedom of communication law of 30 September 1986 and the radio and TV communication law of 29 July 1982) would become a distinct, autonomous right. The draft law’s rapporteur, Jean Dionis du Séjour, said this would distinguish “a universe of millions of far-flung content producers from a very capitalistic circle of video and audio professionals.”This is a good idea in principle. But the case law in this field is still very limited, so making the Internet an autonomous right could have complex legal consequences which even the specialists are hard put to predict. The Internet would no longer fall under broadcasting law and would therefore be set free from any control by the High Council for Broadcasting (CSA). This is a positive point. But website hosts would henceforth be tried under common law, which could be a disadvantage in some cases. For example, the period of limitation is different for an offence under the broadcasting law and under common law. Which would apply in the case of online content?The version of the bill that was adopted by the national assembly must now go back to the senate. Once passed by both chambers, it would have to be submitted for the approval of the constitutional council. In 2000, the council already rejected a law proposed by the socialist government which envisaged an identical model of responsibility for website hosts. Let’s hope the council also opposes the industry minister’s bill if the minister himself does not take the initiative of amending it.The text of this statement is also available in French and Spanish at www.internet.rsf.org “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News News News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on France Reporters Without Borders today appealed to the senate to amend the digital economy bill passed on second reading by the national assembly yesterday, so that the commercial companies that host websites do not have to act as Internet censors and decide if online content is legal, and so that there is no threat to the confidentiality of e-mail.

Bryum Hedw. Collected from Lake Vanda, Antarctica

first_imgBryum cf. algens Card, was collected by SCUBA divers from 9-31 m in the benthos of perennially ice-covered Lake Vanda (77°32′S, 161°35′E), Wright Valley, southern Victoria Land, Antarctica. It occurred as a component of a microbial mat consisting primarily of Phormidium frigidum Fritsch, Lyngbya martensiana Menegh. and pennate diatoms. Contrastingly, B. cf. algens was not found in Lakes Bonney, Hoare, Chad and Fryxell located in adjacent Taylor Valley, nor was it found in any ice-free littoral regions of the lakes of Taylor and Wright Valleys investigated during the 1980-81 austral summer. Bryum algens is the most widespread bryophyte south of 56°S in Antarctica. Its wide range of morphological forms has caused many problems in its taxonomy. Based upon examinations by one of us (R. I. L. S.), it is probable that B. korotkevicziae Sav.-Lyub. & Z. Smirn. and its variety hollebachii Sav.-Lyub. & Z. Smirn. and an unidentified aquatic Bryum sp. from Ablation Valley, Antarctica may be ecotypes of B. algens. The findings of B. cf. algens in Lake Vanda is the southernmost known occurrence of a moss from a perennially liquid deep water (>0.5 m) habitat.last_img read more

The growth response of two diatom species to atmospheric dust from the Last Glacial Maximum

first_imgRelief of iron (Fe) limitation in the surface Southern Ocean has been suggested as one driver of the regular glacial-interglacial cycles in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). The proposed cause is enhanced deposition of Fe-bearing atmospheric dust to the oceans during glacial intervals, with consequent effects on export production and the carbon cycle. However, understanding the role of enhanced atmospheric Fe supply in biogeochemical cycles is limited by knowledge of the fluxes and ‘bioavailability’ of atmospheric Fe during glacial intervals. Here, we assess the effect of Fe fertilization by dust, dry-extracted from the Last Glacial Maximum portion of the EPICA Dome C Antarctic ice core, on the Antarctic diatom species Eucampia antarctica and Proboscia inermis. Both species showed strong but differing reactions to dust addition. E. antarctica increased cell number (3880 vs. 786 cells mL-1), chlorophyll a (51 vs. 3.9 μg mL-1) and particulate organic carbon (POC; 1.68 vs. 0.28 μg mL-1) production in response to dust compared to controls. P. inermis did not increase cell number in response to dust, but chlorophyll a and POC per cell both strongly increased compared to controls (39 vs. 15 and 2.13 vs. 0.95 ng cell-1 respectively). The net result of both responses was a greater production of POC and chlorophyll a, as well as decreased Si:C and Si:N incorporation ratios within cells. However, E, antarctica decreased silicate uptake for the same nitrate and carbon uptake, while P. inermis increased carbon and nitrate uptake for the same silicate uptake. This suggests that nutrient utilization changes in response to Fe addition could be driven by different underlying mechanisms between different diatom species. Enhanced supply of atmospheric dust to the surface ocean during glacial intervals could therefore have driven nutrient-utilization changes which could permit greater carbon fixation for lower silica utilization. Additionally, both species responded more strongly to lower amounts of direct Fe chloride addition than they did to dust, suggesting that not all the Fe released from dust was in a bioavailable form available for uptake by diatoms.last_img read more
