I’d buy them now Image source: Getty Images. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The volatility seen in the market in the past few months has opened up one of the best opportunities to buy FTSE 100 shares that we have seen in a while. With some stock prices trading at recent lows, I believe it is now possible to buy shares in great companies at a wonderful price.Although I believe the FTSE 100 will recover in the long term, it is wise for investors to exercise caution. The global economic landscape is likely to get ugly and it could mean disaster for some businesses. As Warren Buffett advises investors: “Don’t lose money!”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…That said, I think these shares could be great long-term bets for FTSE 100 investors.Royal Dutch ShellIn the past, Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSA) was much loved by income investors. However, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and a tumbling oil price, the company slashed its interim dividend from $0.47 to $0.16 per share. Like other FTSE 100 companies, it also cancelled its share buyback program.Oil prices have strengthened over the past month. Brent crude is now trading at just under $40 a barrel. At the start of May, its price was hovering around $30 a barrel. Demand for oil will probably increase, as governments around the world ease lockdowns and travel restrictions. If demand does surge, it is likely the price of oil will rise. If this occurs, there will be serious pressure for Shell to reinstate its dividend and resume its share buyback program.A rising oil price is just a short-term fix for Shell. The business will eventually need to diversify away from fossil fuels and shift its revenue focus to renewables. Shell has a target of being a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner.For now though, after falling by 40% year-to-date, I believe the Royal Dutch Shell share price is trading at a bargain level. Its price-to-earnings ratio is currently trading at just over 8. The opportunity to buy cheap shares in a quality FTSE 100 company does not happen often. It might be worth buying right now.The best FTSE 100 share to buy?Prudential (LSE: PRU) also makes my list of best FTSE 100 shares to buy now.Asia and the US are Prudential’s biggest markets after the split of its UK business last year. Due to the coronavirus, the life insurer announced in May that annual premium equivalent sales in Asia were down 24% in the first quarter.It is not all bad news for Prudential, however. Outside of Hong Kong and China, sales in the region were up by 1%. In the US, annual premium equivalent sales were up by 25%, and in Africa, annual premium equivalent sales increased by 43%.Asia remains a difficult territory for businesses, with the threat of an escalation of the US-China trade war always in the background. However, as fellow-Fool Royston Wild points out, the key to buying shares is holding them for at least 10 years. By utilising this strategy, economic wobbles should be minimised.Prudential’s share price has fallen by almost 17% year-to-date. This drop makes its price-to-earnings ratio just 9. And unlike other FTSE 100 companies, Prudential has maintained its announced dividend payments. The shares have a prospective dividend yield of roughly 3%.I think Prudential is in a great position for any market recovery. I would buy and hold right now. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Blankspaces Coworking Space Set to Open in Playhouse District This Year

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Blankspaces, one of pioneers in the coworking spaces concept and a leading voice in the global coworking community, is coming to Pasadena.Architect Jerome Chang said a Pasadena location has long been on Blankspaces’ radar since he started the concept. Now he has secured a location at 600 East Colorado Boulevard, he is planning out what he thinks will among the largest of existing facilities in California.“The Pasadena location, that should be our largest. We could fit about a hundred people in there,” Chang said. “You name it, we’ll have internet people, insurance brokers, lawyers, to customs brokers, writers, to graphic designers… you name it, everyone’s there.”Chang started the concept of opening up conducive working environments for freelancers and like-minded entrepreneurs when he was looking for working space as an architect about three years ago.“I was working in cafes and I noticed there were a lot of people like me who were working in cafes and libraries and public areas,” he said.When the first Blankspace was set up in Wilshire in 2007, Chang saw for himself how the space could encourage people to “share ideas, collaborate, hire each other, or get coffee together.”Later on, he stumbled on the term “coworking” during the buildout and realized that term embraced a lot of the same values he was trying to achieve.Chang also is a co-founder of the League of Extraordinary Coworking Spaces, the first national network of coworking spaces, which helps Blankspaces members find haven in other towns worldwide. The League connects with over 20 brands in 45 locations around the globe.Santa Monica became Chang’s second location after three years, while a downtown Los Angeles facility opened a year and a half ago. Pasadena’s Playhouse District will be the fourth location, close to Caltech as Chang wants to target the area’s academic and tech talent.Chang says he makes certain that all Blankspace locations sit in an area with fast internet connections. All three California locations are located at or near major nodes and switches that not only connect the neighborhood, but the entire west coast.Pasadena’s Blankspaces location will probably start construction later this year, and could open in the fourth quarter of 2015.For more, visit http://www.blankspaces.com/ Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Subscribe Make a comment Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Doctors warn of yellow pack care system

first_imgFacebook New Music: 40Hurtz Advertisement Print Linkedin Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up by Andrew [email protected] are warning that the crisis in general practice is at a “critical stage” and that a “yellow pack service” for patients is emerging.Over 250 GPs from the Mid West attended a meeting in Limerick this week where they outlined the effect Government cuts are having on the provision of primary patient care.They are calling for the government to reverse “socially detrimental cuts” that will see rural and elderly people losing out to young urban patients.Doctors believe the introduction of free GP care for children under six will precipitate the collapse of general practice as we know it and claim the consequences will be devastating.“This not a future crisis but a current one. It’s the result of €160 million being taken out of general practice and we are struggling to provide service to our patients – particularly elderly and rural ones,” said Dr Conor McGee, President of the National Association of General Practitioners.Speaking of behalf of younger doctors, Dr Emmet Kerin warned that almost 30 per cent of newly qualified doctors are actively considering emigrating while one in five have already left. In the last year alone at least 13 GP principals emigrated while it is estimated that at least 30 per cent of established GPs will retire over the next 15 years.“The HSE are not recording this, we know this is happening on the ground. We are seeing the personal relationship in general practice being lost and it’s accelerating to a yellow pack service where you don’t know your doctor and you are in and out in six minutes,” he said.“The most common reason for GPs emigrating is not salary, but terms and conditions,” said Dr McGee.“It is becoming harder for GPs to meet our commitments. We are not able to see patients as often or as long as we should. If you can’t consult properly then it is the patient who will lose.”He warned the government’s attempt to impose the Dutch model where patients are seen every six minutes would not work in Ireland.Doctors also called on the government to review their decision to introduce free GP care to all children under six and to prioritise those who are in most need of care.Speakers at the event included Dr Edward Walsh, Founding President of the University of Limerick, Dr Mary Gray and Dr Michael Harty.

first_imgThe Ocean City Police Department sponsors a free carnival-like event 5 to 9 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, Aug. 5) at the Dick Grimes Field at Sixth Street and Haven Avenue in Ocean City.National Night Out was established to heighten crime and drug prevention.  Towns and municipalities throughout the nation participate on this same night.The event is designed to improve relationships between the community and the police department, as well as helping neighbors get-to-know each other a little better.  When the Ocean City Police Department first started to participate in National Night Out, it would set up a table at the Ocean City Music Pier and hand out informational pamphlets. The department felt that this was too impersonal and wanted to bring awareness as well as bring the community together.  What better way but to have a carnival?The main goal is creating a free, fun, family environment for everyone to come out, enjoy themselves and be educated at the same time.  Thanks to the support of the Ocean City Policeman’s Benevolent Association, Local No. 61, the department is able make this event such a huge success. They were able to move from one table at the music pier to the carnival at the ball fields at 6th and Bay.  This year, they’ve added some carnival games for the kids to participate in for a chance to win prizes.They still have the inflatable bouncers, face painting, music, and the crowd favorite: dunk tanks.  Not only will you get to dunk police officers but this year you may have the chance to soak some of the faculty and staff from the Ocean City school district.The event will be held on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 5-9 pm at the Dick Grimes Sports complex located at 6th Street and Bay Avenue.  It is a great time for the entire family.— News release from the Ocean City Police Departmentlast_img read more

Business Schools Tap Veterans

first_imgFive years ago, Augusto Giacoman was commanding about 30 soldiers and leading raids in Iraq. Now he spends his days in classrooms alongside former bankers, engineers and other civilians earning a master’s in business administration.Mr. Giacoman, a retired U.S. Army officer, is evidence of a growing effort among business schools to lure ex-military members into M.B.A. programs, where they are prized for their leadership skills and ability to bring an alternate perspective to the classroom, say school administrators.At Harvard Business School, veterans currently make up 3% of the class of 2011’s 930 students…Read more herelast_img

U.S. Will Unify Initiatives to Combat Organized Crime in Latin America

first_imgBy Dialogo February 09, 2011 The United States is seeking to unify the plans it sponsors against organized crime in Latin America, in order to achieve greater coordination and effectiveness, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs William Brownfield announced in Guatemala on 6 February. The official, who is on a trip to Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Colombia, said at a press conference that he hopes to find “synergies” in these countries to improve established programs and efficiently combat international mafias, especially drug-trafficking ones. “After this trip, and if we have a coincidence of perspectives in the region, (we hope) that this will enable us to design a new structure that could arise in order to have more collaboration among the countries of the Mesoamerican region and also the other countries in the hemisphere that want to be supportive and participate,” he affirmed. He explained that in Colombia there already exists Plan Colombia; in Mexico, the Mérida Initiative; and in Central America, a plan that the United States has developed jointly with the Central American Integration Secretariat (SICA). “What we’re seeking is to unify criteria, not to change or eliminate an initiative; we’re seeking to construct an umbrella under which countries on the inside or or on the outside can construct an infrastructure,” he noted. “We know perfectly well that we have shared threats, illicit drugs, gangs, international organized crime, the movement of illegal weapons, that in other words, we’re all victims of those threats; the question is how we can collaborate better in order to resist, combat, and eventually defeat those threats,” he added. Brownfield began his regional tour on 6 February in Guatemala, where he inaugurated an Automated Fingerprint Identification System, financed with U.S. cooperation funds, which will contain data on 57,000 criminals in its first phase. The system will link four political, judicial, and penitentiary institutions, which will be able to make use of the information in order to improve performance of their respective tasks. The official concluded his visit with a closed-door meeting with Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom, after which no statements were made to the press. Brownfield, who was sworn in as assistant secretary on 10 January, is travelling together with Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson. Both travelled on Tuesday to El Salvador, where they met with the deputy security minister, Henry Campos; the director of prisons, Douglas Moreno; the head of the police, Carlos Ascensio; and the attorney general, Romeo Barahona. In Honduras, Brownfield and Jacobson met with the state secretary for security, Óscar Álvarez, and participated in a working meeting of the Central American Regional Security Initiative (CARSI) chaired by President Porfirio Lobo and U.S. Ambassador Hugo Llorens. In Colombia, Brownfield will meet with the attorney general, Viviane Morales; with the commander of the Armed Forces, Adm. Edgar Cely; and with the director of the National Police, Gen. Oscar Naranjo. Brownfield has extensive experience in Latin America, where he has served as ambassador to Colombia, Venezuela, and Chile. In addition, he worked as counselor for humanitarian affairs in Argentina and El Salvador and was temporarily assigned as political advisor to the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Southern Command in Panama, from 1989 to 1990.last_img read more
