How to start buying stocks and shares

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Paul Summers has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Stock markets have been well and truly walloped by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Since things will recover in time, however, we at the Fool UK think now could be a superb opportunity for new investors to get involved. Here — in a nutshell — is how to do 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…1. Sort your financesBefore you’ve even bought a single share, you need to work out what funds you have available. Investing is a long-term game and should only be done using cash you won’t need for at least five years. With the coronavirus placing the economy in snooze mode, that’s harder to gauge than it used to be.The good news is that you don’t need to already have a fortune to make one, and every little helps. Investment portfolios can be built from as little as £25 a month. If you’ve already tackled high-interest debts and have an emergency fund built up, you’re probably good to go.2. Open a Stocks and Shares ISAIf you’re wanting to invest, you may as well do it in the most tax-efficient way possible.Keeping anything you own within the ISA wrapper rather than in a standard trading account saves you from paying tax on any profits you make or dividend income you receive.Opening a Stocks and Shares ISA with an established provider, such as Hargreaves Lansdown, AJ Bell or Interactive Investor, takes only a few minutes. Your broker will act as the middle-man in the market, matching buyers with sellers. It will also hold your shares on your behalf.3. Get to know yourselfBefore launching into a buying spree, it’s vital to know how long you intend to stay invested and what proportion of your portfolio should be in stocks.A good starting point is your age. Generally speaking, someone in their 20s will usually have a far higher risk tolerance compared to someone approaching (or in) retirement because they have more time to respond to setbacks.Young investors will, therefore, have more of their money in individual stocks or funds. This allows them to benefit as much as possible from the power of compounding over time.Those in their golden years will likely hold stocks too. However, they’ll also own more of other assets such as bonds and property since these tend to give more protection during volatile periods (even if the returns aren’t as good).4. Start slowTo buy stock in a company, you need to enter its ticker. Tesco‘s ticker, for example, is TSCO. You’ll then get a live quote that needs to be accepted before the countdown expires for the trade to go through. Inevitably, purchasing stock incurs a fee (in the range of £8-£12). Another cost to consider is the ‘spread’ (the difference between the price at which you can buy and the price you can sell at). Stamp duty, at 0.5%, is also charged to buyers. Don’t think that you need to invest all your money in one go. A good option for understandably nervous newbies is to buy in equal, monthly instalments. Doing this should help smooth out volatility in the markets. When stocks are down, your money buys you more and vice versa.The commission fees for regular investing are also lower because trades are made on a fixed date. Expect to pay roughly £1 per trade. 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.center_img Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Paul Summers Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The Slow House located in the Innovation city in Ulsan is situated in the rectangular site with 8 meters-width road at the northwest side facing the foot of Mt. Hwangbang. Since it is expected that there will be a lot of car traffics and mountain climbers, it is necessary to design a plan which protects user privacy. Therefore, the design was started with the intention of separating a private area with a public area. First, the shape of the mass was decided as a form wrapping the space and embracing the mountain. And, the lower part of the piloti resulting from the form of the mass is used as a buffer zone where the private area and the public area are separated.Save this picture!© Kim Yong-soonThe inner space of this house is roughly separated into three hierarchies: a family area, children area, and couple area. In order to clarify these hierarchies, the concept of the staircase was used.Save this picture!Diagram. Image Courtesy of KDDHThe family area located at the lowest part of the house includes a kitchen, dining room, and others for the purpose of the family activity. In order to embrace various programs in small size area, a skip floor plan that is dislocated every half story was planned instead of a traditional method that separates spaces using walls and furnitures. Through the skip floor plan a large volume space compared to the size of the area could be obtained. And, the Growing Light was installed to fill the emptiness, giving the sense of the center to the space. Once approaching to the second floor via the staircase, a study room, the first buffer area, is seen. Through this study room a space where it is possible to look down the living room and communicate each other was made. Also, it was planned that the children can pass through the family area by arranging the bedroom where such a formation can be seen.Save this picture!© Kim Yong-soonEach room has a small size, but, has a different shape of a ceiling to form a unique feeling of space. Again, the staircase leads you half story up to the second buffer area. The low corridor divide the space for parents and children, and it is also used as an approaching area for a bathroom.Save this picture!© Kim Yong-soonThis area for the husband and wife is separated very far from other spaces at the highest location, but it is possible to control the children and family area anytime. And, an attic is located at the end of the staircase. Somehow large-sized attic can be used as a separated space for children and guests. The space for children in the attic has a small window toward the living room, enabling to communicate.Save this picture!Section 02The moving path in the Slow House was planned to go up following by the staircase and the corridor. However, each room is open toward the space for the family, making the house to have a feeling of large space.Save this picture!© Kim Yong-soonProject gallerySee allShow lessGCP Wood Cabins Hotel / Atelier LAVITSelected ProjectsD’Entrecasteaux House / Room11 ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Janghyeon-dong, South Korea CopyAbout this officeKDDHOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJanghyeon-dongSouth KoreaPublished on February 19, 2018Cite: “Slow House / KDDH” 19 Feb 2018.

Racism’s hollow monument

first_imgActivists take down a Confederate statue in front of the old Durham, N.C., county courthouse on Aug. 14, 2017.A year ago on Aug. 14, a group of mainly young people in Durham, N.C., took a simple action to end white supremacy that heartened anyone who saw it. And tens of millions did see it — on social media and on newscasts.This week, students and their supporters at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill followed the call to “Do It Like Durham,” toppling a “Silent Sam” statue just before the beginning of the fall semester. The tribute to Confederate alumni has stood at the entrance of the campus for 105 years.In a dramatic event, hundreds of protesters surrounded the massive Silent Sam statue on Aug. 20, covering it with tall banners and dropping smoke bombs as it was being pulled down in the background. Police violently arrested one person during the action. (See accompanying article.)Many millions of people in the U.S. and more around the world were horrified at the eruption of vile racism manifested a year ago in the torchlight parade of Nazis and other white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., and the murder of anti-racist Heather Heyer on Aug. 12.The U.S. president’s bigoted failure to condemn the vicious racists added to the anti-fascist anger and also gave a boost to the worst neo-fascist elements of U.S. society. Could a direct action response push the struggle in the opposite direction from this rightward lunge?Two days later, a young Black woman looped a rope around the neck of a Confederate statue in Durham. People on the ground tugged on the rope. When the statue hit the ground, to many people’s surprise, it crumpled.Research showed it was a hollow, cheap “monument,” much like those mass-produced in a Connecticut factory in the early 1900s and sold on the cheap to cities and towns in the South. Their purpose was not to honor fallen soldiers, but to reinforce racist laws aimed at maintaining the oppression of African Americans.Participants in the Durham demonstration — many of them members of the Durham branch of Workers World Party — were soon arrested and faced heavy charges.Within days some 100 people came out to say, “I’m against racism. Arrest me, too.” More thousands throughout the country sent messages of support. It was obvious that millions who saw the statue tumble got a big lift from this simple, direct action.In some cities around the South, where Confederate monuments — including more substantial ones — abound, local governments decided to remove, cover or otherwise alter them. The local regimes were worried that the Durham example might be copied by actions that had popular mass support.Other statues, including those in the North honoring historical figures who did great but genocidal harm, came under strong attack. That included statues honoring Christopher Columbus, who is infamous for his role in oppressing and massacring Indigenous peoples.As the Durham defendants showed up in court, backing them up was strong popular support for dismantling these racist symbols. This February the prosecution decided it was wiser to drop the charges on the heroes rather than let the struggle be extended and amplified.These victories in the struggle against racism must be reinforced as the struggle continues. To commemorate the anniversary of the action, Durham activists issued a call for a gathering there on Aug. 25-26: “How to Topple a Statue, How to Tear Down a Wall.”The call notes that this month is “Black August, which was started by Black freedom fighters inside California prisons to lift up the many Black liberation struggles taking place across the U.S. and the world. Since 1979, Black August has been a time to build unity, solidarity, and commemorate the fighters who have come before us and were taken too soon by the state and its racist vigilantes.”Durham activists “invite organizers, freedom fighters, and community members from all over to join us in Durham, N.C. … to Defend Durham, Honor Resistance in Charlottesville and Smash White Supremacy!“Black people, people of color, im/migrants, and working class people continue to come under intensified attacks. From police killings to raids and deportations, eviction crises and gentrification, to mass incarceration and unemployment, the need for solidarity is more crucial than ever.“Join us for workshops, political discussions, and actions.”For more information, see doitlikedurham.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Cambodia: Harassment of journalists accompanies ban on opposition party

first_img Created in 1993, the same year as Cambodia’s first free elections, the Cambodia Daily was forced to close on 4 September by a sudden tax department demand for payment of 6.3 million dollars in alleged back taxes. News Google experiments drop Australian media from search results Cambodian special police forces block access to the supreme court building although the court’s hearing was supposed to be open to the press and public (photo: Tang Chhin Sothy / AFP). Organisation RSF_en After the arrests of three reporters in the past three days amid a crackdown on the opposition, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) relays the fears of Cambodia’s journalists and urges the government to stop harassing them and to guarantee their right to report the news. November 16, 2017 – Updated on November 17, 2017 Cambodia: Harassment of journalists accompanies ban on opposition party “We relay and share the deep concern of many journalists on the ground after these arbitrary arrests. International organizations need to understand the gravity of what is happening in Phnom Penh. The denial of media freedom means the end of a 25-year democratic transition after the trauma of the Khmer Rouge genocide.” In September, the Cambodian authorities ordered the closure of all local radio stations that carried RFA’s programming, resulting in the closure of this US-funded broadcaster’s Phnom Penh bureau and the loss of 50 jobs. Len Leng, a former reporter for the now closed Cambodia Daily newspaper, was arrested yesterday outside the supreme court building in Phnom Penh and, although the hearing being held inside was supposed to be open to the public, she was taken into custody on the grounds that she did not have a press pass.Leng’s suddent arrest was attributable to the fact that the pro-government supreme court had just banned the Cambodia National Rescue Party, the only opposition party represented in parliament, thereby turning Cambodia into a de facto one-party state just months ahead of elections due to be held next July.The authorities are clearly bent on silencing all dissent. After the arrests of two former Radio Free Asia (RFA) journalists, Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin, in Phnom Penh on 14 November, interior ministry spokesman Kieu Sopheak accused them of trying to improvise a studio in order to send news to RFA’s Washington headquarters. “The court is checking to find the crime,” the spokesman added, referring to the Phnom Penh municipal court’s uncertainty as to what they would be charged with. The two journalists, who deny the allegations, are due to appear in court today. “These latest cases clearly show that the law and the judicial system are being used to suppress any independent reporting and, above all, to intimidate the entire press,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. Leng is not the first former Cambodia Daily reporter to be harassed. Two others, Aun Pheap and Zsombor Peter, were recently accused of inciting crime by covering the campaign for municipal elections held in June.

‘PRETTY’ MESSY

Sessions is among the potters at the Colley Senior Complex Pottery House.After 28 years in the classroom, Melanie Sessions is back making mud pies or what grownups call pottery.“It’s messy …. but ‘pretty’ messy,” Sessions said in explaining the glaze that is “dripping” along the rim of a piece of pottery that she has designed. “I like pottery with a rustic look.

Sessions is among the potters at the Colley Senior Complex Pottery House.“Throwing pots on the well is the hard part but I’m enjoying it all,” she said. “I like designing the pottery. I also like to see what others are doing and I get ideas from them.

Another piece came out of the kiln looking too plain so I added something to the design. That’s the fun of pottery, not knowing what you’re going to get. You can pick out a color of glaze on the chart and it often won’t come out close or even close to color.”And, it’s the surprise of what she’s going to see when the kiln is opened that gets Sessions up and at The Pottery House at the break of day.MESSENGER PHOTO/JAINE TREADWELLMelanie Sessions is back making pottery after being in the classroom for 28 years.
