Sports betting may bring another wave of worldwide sports fans to the LPGA, but it will require us to be protected and supported by experts like Genius Sports.”Ben Paterson, integrity operations director at Genius Sports, added: “With the growing focus on why sports integrity matters, the LPGA Tour has taken proactive steps to effectively safeguard its tournaments, members and reputation.“We are proud to be appointed as their official integrity partner and look forward to working with them to implement market-leading systems and measures that will provide long-term protection and visibility.”Genius Sports is currently working with the PGA Tour, the men’s equivalent of the LPGA, on an integrity program, while the supplier also has partnerships in place with the likes of basketball’s NBA and the Nascar stock car racing series.last_img read more

Forget gold! 3 simple ways to get rich from this stock market recovery

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. Since late summer 2018, the trend for the spot price of gold has been up. And given that gold tends to rise during periods of uncertainty, perhaps the move is unsurprising.Seeing a market rise like that is tempting. But I reckon it could be a mistake right now to pile into investing instruments that track the price of gold. After all, the shiny yellow metal is near the all-time high it hit in the summer of 2011.5G 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…I reckon the old high could act as a point of resistance and we may see a pullback. But regardless of that possibility, is it wise to invest in anything when it’s trading near its highs?Improving prospectsTo answer my own question, I’d say that sometimes investing near highs can be a good idea. For example, in the stock market, a share breaking out to new highs can signify rapid advancement in the underlying business operations.In fact, hunting for share prices breaking out after a period of consolidation can be a decent strategy for finding promising investment situations. And you can verify the quality and value of the underlying business by doing your own analysis and research. But I’m less certain about instruments such as gold. After all, there aren’t many fundamentals to back up the price of gold. A lot of the movement in gold is driven by speculation.And many stocks are breaking out as we emerge from lockdowns around the world and take the first tentative steps to rebuild economies. For example, we’ve seen strong recent upsurges in shares such as Renew, Bunzl, Codemasters, Hikma Pharmaceuticals and many more.But if the short-term outlook for such firms is improving, general uncertainty could be easing. And that could weaken the gold price. Of course, we have the prospect of living through a deep recession now. But markets look ahead, and gold investors may soon start thinking about wider economic recovery after the downturn.Selective investingOn balance, I’d avoid gold because it is trading near its highs. Instead, I’d rather invest in stocks because they are recovering and breaking out. However, some sectors remain mired in the mud, such as banking and the hospitality and travel industries. So I reckon it’s important to be selective. It’s a stock-picker’s market more than ever right now.My three-step plan to help me get rich from this stock market recovery is simple. First, I’d look for strong sectors, such as IT, food supplies, healthcare, consumer staples and others. Second, I’d identify strong stocks within those sectors if they are breaking out from consolidations. And third, I’d research the fundamentals and opportunities of the underlying businesses to see if they are worth investing in.center_img Kevin Godbold | Sunday, 24th May, 2020 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.

A 2021 market crash may be coming. Here’s what I’m doing about it

As an investor, I’m increasingly nervous about what the rest of 2021 has in store for my portfolio and whether another market crash is on its way. This is what I’m doing about it.Market crash ahead?It’s not hard to come up with reasons why we could be teetering on the edge.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…You have the fact that many stocks, particularly in the US, are now at gravity-defying valuations. This is not dissimilar to what we saw at the turn of the millennium. Back then, loss-making dotcom stocks were all the rage. When company fundamentals no longer matter — which appears to be the case for some stocks now — it often ends in a market crash.But it’s not just share prices that are making me skittish. The eye-popping popularity of volatile investments such Bitcoin and the herding behaviour witnessed during the recent Gamestop/short-selling episode, are also potential red flags. Both have arguably been driven by a wave of new, inexperienced retail traders seeking excitement (and riches) while stuck at home. Any strategy based on hoping someone else will pay a higher price for something (the ‘greater fool’ theory) is fraught with danger. Another worrying trend is the big spike in IPO activity. Some of these newly-listed companies may turn out to be great investments, but many will not. At times like this, it pays to remember that we’re being invited to buy something that its original owner no longer wants to fully own. The most likely reason for this is that they feel they’re selling when sentiment is at its highest. All of the above are indicative of the final stages of a bull market, I feel. As such, I suspect the odds of another crash have shortened considerably.What I’m doing about itOne key way of preparing for the fallout is ensuring my portfolio is properly diversified. This involves checking that I have a shares in different sectors and reducing my exposure to anything highly speculative.It’s also important to know how long I plan to stay invested for. Young investors can be risk-tolerant because they have the time to make up for any losses. Older investors, either approaching or in retirement, may need to be more prudent. In theory, it makes sense for them to reduce their exposure to risky equities. Keeping some cash in reserve to mop up some bargains if they appear among fallen shares with sound fundamentals is never a bad idea. The recovery seen since last March is proof that a market crash can actually be a wonderful opportunity to make money.Successful investing is as much about keeping our emotions in check as it is about good money management. This is why not looking at a portfolio too often is so important. If I find myself doing this, I either delete my broker’s app or spend time researching great companies to buy if share prices plummet. I don’t know for sure whether markets will plunge in 2021. No one does. Even so, I do think it’s vital to be realistic and question whether recent momentum can be sustained. The time to be worried is when everyone else isn’t.As for me, I found some wonderful bargain UK shares in the last market crash. I hope to do the same if it happens again. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

This apartment building is in the Otowa district of Tokyo’s Bunkyo ward, very close to Gokokuji temple, which was established in the Edo era (1603-1868) as a place of prayer for members of the shogunate. Although the neighborhood is located in the city center, it retains traces of that older era.Save this picture!© Bauhaus NeoIn order to avoid direct lines of sight between the apartment building and the residents of the single-family homes lining the other side of the narrow road on which it sits, the windows are shifted slightly off-center. This arrangement of windows brings breezes and natural light into the building while also giving the heavy concrete a lighter feeling.Save this picture!SectionThe windows appear sufficiently large from inside, but the exterior surface surrounding each one slopes in at an angle, creating a recessed “frame” that heightens the impression of lightness. In addition, some of the sloped surfaces are covered with hot-dip galvanized steel sheets, while on the interior side, wooden frame-like shelf placed in the same position echo the rectangular shape of the recessed frames. This creates a loose connection between interior and exterior.   Save this picture!© Bauhaus NeoThe interiors of the units are composed entirely of white walls and unadorned concrete. All unnecessary elements have been eliminated from the simple details and style. This minimalist design, which seeks the simplest possible form for an apartment building, is intended to link to a lifestyle unburdened by superfluous material possessions. We envision the minimal elements of the apartment enabling a freer lifestyle for its residents. For example, the storage space enclosed only by freestanding walls can also become a compact office, while the spacious concrete kitchen counter can serve as a desk.    Save this picture!© Bauhaus NeoThe windows and wooden frame-like shelf in this building make abundant use of squares. Once we have freed ourselves from convention of modern design that dictates either a horizontal or a vertical window, squares may be the purest and most primitive shape for these openings. Save this picture!© Bauhaus NeoProject gallerySee allShow lessBeijing Cidi Memo iTown / Atelier Liu Yuyang ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMCH: MAS in Collective HousingWorkshopProject locationAddress:Japan, 〒112-0013 Tōkyō-to, Bunkyō-ku, Otowa, 2 Chome−9−7Location to be used only as a reference.

Live radio debate on pope leads to suspension of editor

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en Follow the news on Poland Poland’s new social media law puts freedom of expression at risk, RSF warns News Reporters Without Borders expressed concern after a radio editor was suspended by the management of state-run Polskie Radio after staging a live radio debate in which some young listeners criticised the late Pope John Paul II.Pawel Sito, editor of one of its stations, Radio BIS, was sanctioned on 12 May as a result of a two-hour debate broadcast on 9 April, a week after the pope’s death, from a Warsaw political debating club “Madame” frequented by militant feminists, homosexuals and artists.Young Catholics and atheists took part in the debate entitled “New unification”, in an atmosphere that was “very respectful towards the pope”, said Sito, who considered the debate was a “democratic necessity”.Some speakers however stressed that Jean Paul II was not the highest authority as far as they were concerned.Reporters Without Borders pointed out that the dismissal of Sito, which was still being discussed within the broadcast company, was likely to strengthen self-censorship in Poland.”Free expression in Poland, which has been part of the European Union since Mai 2004, should respond to European legal standards. There should not be any exception for subjects considered sensitive like the late Pope John Paul II, of Polish origin,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.The manager of “Madame”, Krystian Legierski, said the Pawel Sito programme had presented the first real chance to talk freely about the pope in the context of free public debate, since there had been “massive media conformity” surrounding the dying pope.Pawel Sito had organised a series of programmes entitled, “The energy of young people for the pope”, allowing people to speak openly about their emotions on the death of John Paul II.Leftist national daily Trybuna said that the forthrightness voiced on the radio, which may have displeased the management, nevertheless led to a tripling in listening figures during the month. These same figures were quoted by the centre-right Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland’s biggest daily newspaper.

LIT scholarships give third level access to 100 students

first_imgScholarship award recipients Jade Foynes, Shirley Costelloe and Alan Spillane with Limerick hurling manager John Kiely and LIT President Vincent Cunnane.Photo: Alan PlaceMORE than a hundred students were able to access third level education over the past five years because of a €1 million investment in the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) scholarship programme.This academic year alone, 45 students received scholarships – 26 through the [email protected] Student Scholarship Programme and a further 19 through the Higher Education Authority’s 1916 Bursary Fund.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The recipients, along with the donors who have contributed more than €1million to the scholarship fund, were recognised at a special ceremony earlier this week at LIT’s Moylish Campus.Congratulating the scholarship recipients guest speaker, Limerick’s All Ireland Hurling Winning Manager and School Principal, John Kiely, compared them to a “great full forward” taking advantage of every opportunity.“You have demonstrated that you have the work ethic and ability to achieve in your studies over the coming years and in your professional lives, and this scholarship will give you the best opportunity to maximise that potential.“You are about to join an elite group of those that went before you, a group that can and will go on to make significant difference in many fields of work in Ireland, Europe and the world in years to come.”He had also this advice for the recipients:“You have a cohort of a wonderful team beside you so put them to work, play with them, play hard, and get the most out of it.”In its fifth year the LIT student scholarships aims to alleviate financial strain experienced by targeted students, allowing the recipients to concentrate fully on their education and finish their course of study. The programme has proved hugely successful and popular among students who may otherwise struggle to attend college.Social Care Student and Deputy President of LIT Students’ Union, Jade Foynes said, “I may not be standing here today without the support of this scholarship. It has meant the world to me and my family.“I am from Moyross, and I couldn’t be more proud standing here today telling you my story and letting others know there is support available and that education is for all.”“I would encourage all the sponsors to never underestimate the difference you are making by investing in a student’s potential. Your investment changes lives, it most definitely changed me,” she said.Shirley Costello from Scarriff, County Clare was one of the first people to complete her bursary application this year.“The day I got the phone call to say I got the bursary a weight was lifted off my mind. It was the best feeling ever. The bursary allowed me the freedom to focus on college.”Having left school just after her junior cert, Shirley acknowledged education took a back seat for a long time, and a series of jobs left her unfulfilled.Then she opted to change the course of her life and return to education. She was drawn immediately to the renewable energy electrical engineering course at LIT as it would benefit her professionally and benefit the environment, but financing her time in college remained a concern. The 1916 Bursary allayed those concerns.LIT President Professor Vincent Cunnane thanked the donors for both their financial contributions and other opportunities they provide for LIT students and graduates.“While your support relieves students of financial concerns that would impact negatively on their study, your investment in the scholarship and the students goes far beyond that. It is a vote of confidence in the students’ abilities and an acknowledgement of their value to their community, society and the future economy of the region. It is a vote of confidence in the next generation of leaders who may not have otherwise got their chance to shine. This benefits individuals, their families, communities and the region,” he said.by Tom [email protected] Limerick Post Show | FOLM Project Previous article45 hospitalised with flu symptomsNext articleEmergency plan needed to tackle youth crime in Limerick Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp TAGSeducationLimerick City and CountyLimerick Institute of TechnologyLITNews Email Twitter Facebook Women in the Creative Arts to take centre stage at LIT’s International Women’s Day Flagship Event Printcenter_img NewsEducationLIT scholarships give third level access to 100 studentsBy Staff Reporter – January 26, 2019 1220 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LIT Development & Public Engagement Manager, Seamus Hoyne, is awarded the SEAI Outstanding Contribution to Sustainable Energy Award.

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Tracking Homeowners’ Desire to Relocate A survey by LendingTree found that about half of Americans looked into moving in the coming year.The researchers took a closer look at where, specifically, homeowners who relocate are most likely to go. Using data from January-December of 2020, LendingTree analyzed the migration patterns of American homebuyers in each of the 50 states. They found that most surveyed are thinking of moving within the state where they live and that homeowners in certain places—like New York—are more likely to move to another state.The report’s key findings show:About 85.65% of movers stay in the state that they’re currently living in.Texas has the highest percentage of movers looking to move within state lines at 93.57%. Not only is Texas popular among its own residents, but its relatively low home prices and lack of a state income tax also make it a popular destination for out-of-state movers from states like California and Colorado. For example, 14.04% of homebuyers who move out of California and 11.91% of homebuyers who leave Colorado move to Texas.New York has the most residents looking to leave. 75.28% of New York state movers stay in the Empire State.Most out-of-state movers don’t go far. Thirty-three of the most popular destination states border the current state where a mortgage shopper resides.Florida is the favorite out-of-state destination for mortgage shoppers in 14 of the 50 states. What’s more: Of those 14 states, 12 do not border Florida. The Sunshine State has a long history of bringing in visitors and new residents, particularly retirees, thanks to a mix of affordable housing, no state income tax, and, of course, its sunny weather. Florida also retains current residents with the fifth-highest share of movers who look to stay in-state.For the full study with a regional breakdown, visit LendingTree.com.
