But for the dedicated few, he has rather different advice.Of course, we won’t out-perform the stock market with a tracker fund. Following the fortunes of America’s S&P 500, the UK’s FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 indices, for example, will help us match the stock market’s performance, not beat it.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…Warren Buffett works punishingly hardBut Buffett thinks most people aren’t prepared (or able) to put as much effort into investing as he has. Alice Schroeder – his official biographer who wrote The Snowball — once said he works harder at investing than anyone she has ever known.I reckon most people will lack the time or inclination to obsess about investments as Buffett has. And tracker funds help minimise the risks involved with investing by providing wide diversification across many underlying businesses. I reckon there’s a good case for most investors having a sizeable chunk of their portfolio in trackers.However, Buffett reckons wide diversification is counter-productive for those determined to work hard at their investment strategy with the goal of out-performing the markets. He once said: “If you really know the businesses you have bought, six wonderful ones is what you need to make you rich. Your seventh investment will dilute your returns.”And Peter Lynch said something similar. He once managed the Magellan Fund at Fidelity and achieved annualised returns of just over 29% during his time running it. He said: “There don’t have to be more than five companies in a portfolio at any one time.” Both of these great investors reckon a concentrated portfolio may produce better returns. And I reckon a big secondary pay-off to such a strategy is it can consume less time to manage.My hybrid approachAlthough it has to be said that neither of those two ended up taking their own advice. Lynch ran a portfolio of around 400 positions at one time. And Buffett has his hands full managing his conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.He also has portfolios of stocks with far more than five positions. But he did run a concentrated portfolio in his younger days. And back then, the returns from his portfolio were the greatest in annual percentage terms. Indeed, he often had as few as three to five positions.I’d go for a hybrid approach. For me, it’s a good idea to build a core position in my portfolio featuring wide diversification. And I’d achieve that with tracker funds, investment funds and some selected managed funds. At the end of the day, my financial future depends on the success of my investments. And I want to protect myself from my own potential mistakes. But on top of that, a good chunk of my financial resources would go into a few hand-picked shares of individual companies.If I out-perform the markets, all well and good. If I don’t, all’s not lost because of the backup from my other core, collective investments. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Kevin Godbold | Thursday, 31st December, 2020 I’m following Warren Buffett’s advice about how to outperform the markets Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Kevin Godboldlast_img read more

Recycling rates could rise significantly with this simple tweak

You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear By Karen Winterich, Pennsylvania State University; Gabriel E. Gonzales, the State University of New York at New Paltz, and Gergana Nenkov, Boston CollegeHave you ever thought about what happens to the empty Coke cans and food takeout containers you toss in your recycling bins?Our research suggests that if you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably never considered this question. This was surprising to us given that, by definition, a recyclable is a product that has future use.As consumer psychologists, we wondered if emphasizing this transformation in messages promoting recycling would better motivate people to put more of their empty cans, rigid plastic containers, and discarded papers into the blue bins.Americans are bad recyclersU.S. recycling rates are abysmal.About 75% of American waste is recyclable, yet just 30% of it is actually recycled. The figures are even worse with materials like plastic. Less than 10% of plastics disposed of in the U.S. in 2015 were recycled.We noticed that most recycling messages tend to emphasize negative environmental outcomes from not recycling, such as “save the planet” and “conserve resources.” The problem with such messaging is that it may be perceived as coercive or induce guilt, which is partly responsible for the growing problem of “aspirational recycling,” or mixing non-recyclables in with your recycling.Watch one of the authors explain their research using animation.Modifying the messageSo we conducted a series of studies to see if getting people to think about the products made out of recycled material could motivate them to actually recycle more and waste less.For the first one, we recruited 111 Boston College students to participate in an “advertising study.” We asked participants to doodle on a piece of scratch paper to clear their minds for the survey. We then randomly showed them one of three ads. One was a generic public service message that showed paper going into recycling bins. The other two also depicted the paper either being transformed into new paper or a guitar.After answering some survey questions about the ad they watched, participants were asked to clear their stations and dispose of the scratch paper on their way out. Those who viewed the generic PSA recycled about half the time. Those who saw the transformational messages were significantly more likely to recycle at a rate of about 80%.We saw a similar recycling boost in a very similar study in which participants – 187 college students – doodled on scrap paper and then either watched ads for toys and phone cases that are made out of recycled plastic or ads emphasizing that the advertised products were made by a company that recycles plastic.The image depicts the three different types of ads participants in the first study viewed.Karen Winterich, Gergana Nenkov, Gabriel E. Gonzales, Author providedSo for a third study, we wanted to understand more about what’s going on here. Why do transformational messages work better?We showed 150 adults we recruited online one of three recycling advertisements: One depicted discarded plastic bottles being reborn as new bottles, another more generally described how recycling gives these materials a new life, and a third explained how recycling conserves resources.We then measured the extent to which each message inspired participants to recycle more of their waste. We found that people felt significantly more inspired by the two transformational messages compared with the one emphasizing resource conservation.Taking the message to the real worldTo apply these ideas outside of the lab, we created an ad campaign to see how consumers responded to the different types of messages.We published paid Google search ads to appear whenever users typed prespecified keywords, such as “womens blue jeans” and “blue denim.”The ads either urged people to recycle their old jeans in order to transform them into housing insulation or simply encouraged people to recycle them. We found that people were significantly more likely to click on the ad when the transformed product was mentioned.We also tested this kind of messaging during pre-football game tailgating at Pennsylvania State University.Student volunteers welcomed tailgaters and shared one of two recycling messages with tailgaters. Half of the volunteers emphasized the transformation of recycled items into new products. The other half just told tailgaters what products they could recycle.Volunteers recorded the locations of tailgaters they talked to via a GPS-enabled mobile app. After the game, the recycling and trash bags that tailgaters left behind were weighed. Those who received a transformation message recycled over half of their waste, while those who did not recycled less than a fifth.Recycled solesRecyclables are not just another form of trash.They are used every day to make all sorts of new products. More and more companies such as Nike, Timberland, and PepsiCo are incorporating post-consumer recycled material into their products and packaging.We believe it’s not just governments and policymakers who should incorporate these transformation messages into their advertising campaigns but companies should as well. This would not only show consumers that they care about the environment but perhaps learning that their used plastic bottles may soon be on the soles of their latest Nike shoes would help motivate them to recycle more of their waste.Emphasizing what people’s recyclable waste can become is a very simple messaging tweak, but our research shows it can make a big difference.Karen Winterich, Professor of Marketing, Frank and Mary Smeal Research Fellow, Pennsylvania State University; Gabriel E.

The Paul Meurice home for disabled adults poses the question of the balance between mastering intimacy and opening to the outside world. We respond carefully through spaces that can be widely appropriated and a variety of architectural situations.Save this picture!© Simone BossiWe have imagined a south-facing, stepped building that allows light into the inner courtyard and whose volumes stretch out, recede, and produce sliding variations in the grid of staggered windows. The facades open generously out towards the city, through large domestic windows for the apartments, and large urban windows for the common areas. The generosity of the spaces relies upon the legibility and continuity of the common areas. The successive tiers of the building, induced by its stepped volume, were designed as “open-air rooms”: terraces surrounded by facades so that residents can enjoy outdoor spaces without the risk of falling. The final level opens onto a vast, panoramic collective terrace.Save this picture!AxonometricThe building is organized around two circulation cores, the primary core is situated in the north and a secondary, in the south. This functional arrangement responds as much to a need for flexibility of use as to security constraints. A large entrance hall and the day reception centre are located on the ground floor, with access to the garden, while the first floor hosts a restaurant, rooms for activities offered to residents, and spaces dedicated to administration.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe accommodation units form groups of two levels situated on the second and third floors and on the fourth and fifth floors. No apartment is mono-oriented north and the services are installed back-to-back with the adjoining building to the North-East. The structure is load-bearing between the facade and the circulation cores, which facilitates the modification of interior divisions. A large elevator, like a moving room, connects the entire program by opening onto a living room on each floor.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe choice of materials contributes to the domestic atmosphere desired for the centre. The building envelope, consisting of an externally insulated concrete wall lined with solid bricks, is particularly efficient and robust. The aluminium windows offer resistant materiality and an anodized colour in harmony with the grey brick. Glazed guardrails integrated into the window frames allow for the incorporation of external textile blinds guided over the entire window height. An interior sheer curtain completes the window design.Save this picture!© Simone BossiProject gallerySee allShow lessClemens Strobl Winery / destilatSelected ProjectsJ1M5 Boutique / Various AssociatesSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rue Paul Meurice, 75020 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Protests challenge deportation of Haitians

first_imgJuly 1 saw protests in Miami, Philadelphia and New York City against the Dominican Republic’s policy of deporting Dominicans of Haitian descent.The protest in New York, held in front of the Times Square Dominican Consulate, was called by two Dominican organizations: We are All Dominicans and Black Lives Matter in the Dominican Republic. The speakers connected the racist way Dominican immigrants to the United States are treated, noting that Dominicans in the U.S. are considered Black, to the racist way Haitians and the descendants of Haitians are treated in the Dominican Republic.The New York demonstration was composed predominantly of Dominicans, with some non-Dominican progressives and some Haitians. A longtime Haitian activist explained: “The Haitian community in New York needs a firmer mobilization over the issue of expulsions in the DR. But splits in the Lavalas movement in Haiti are reflected here and also the community is politically exhausted, concentrating on solving its personal problems flowing from its status as ‘immigrants oppressed by racism.’”The protest in Philadelphia on July 1 was called by a group of Haitian organizations: the Haitian Coalition of Philadelphia, Haitian Professionals of Philadelphia, Haitian Clergy of Philadelphia and the United Kingdom Youth Ministry. They marched along Market Street to the Liberty Bell site chanting, “One island, one blood!” and “L’Union fait la force!” — a Haitian slogan meaning “Unity is strength.”In Miami, the demonstrations began with the chant “Enough is enough!” The Miami demonstrators also called the Dominican Republic’s deportation policy racist.“We will not stop until justice is done, and this is injustice,” North Miami Councilmember Alix Desulme said. The protesters later went to the Dominican Consulate in Miami, where they left a resolution demanding that the Dominican Republic change its immigration policy.WW photo: G.

Republican movement used Donegal as “dumping ground” for sex offenders – Claim

first_img The Rape Crisis Centre in Belfast is accusing the Republican Movement of using Donegal as a “dumping ground” for sex offenders within its ranks. The claim is made by a spokesperson for the centre in today’s Donegal on Sunday.Spokesperson Eileen Calder says one high profile republican, who allegedly raped a young child, subsequently became involved in youth work and political campaigning in Donegal long after the republican movement became aware of the allegations.In another incident a victim claims the IRA facilitated the escape to Donegal of an IRA man who raped her and two other children. Ms Calder says the rape crisis centre has every reason to believe that these were not isolated incidents, and finds it ironic that the movement which was dedicated to removing the border was in fact using it and using Donegal as a closet in which to bury its skeletons.
