A large proportion of the world’s population is under lockdown measures. So companies operating in a wide range of industries are set to experience a sudden decline in revenue and profits in 2020.However, some companies are not experiencing material financial impacts from coronavirus. Yet their share prices have declined nonetheless. Why is that? It is because investor sentiment towards the wider stock market has deteriorated. As such, investors may be able to buy resilient businesses with defensive characteristics at discount prices.Even those companies that are experiencing lower sales in the short run due to coronavirus could be undervalued. In many cases they have solid balance sheets and wide economic moats that may enable them to overcome the risks that are currently facing the world economy. Buying them now when they offer a wide margin of safety may not yield high returns in the short run. But over the long run they appear to offer recovery potential.Relative appealAt the present time, investors have a limited choice of where they can invest to generate high long-term returns. Assets such as cash and bonds certainly lack appeal. This is due to low interest rates causing their return prospects to be below inflation in many cases. This may lead to a loss of spending power over the long run that hurts your financial outlook. Likewise, tax changes and lockdown measures mean that the appeal of buy-to-let properties has declined compared to what it was a number of years ago.As such, on a relative basis, the FTSE 100 could offer significant long-term investing potential. Its track record of recovery suggests that even though the recent market crash has been challenging for investors, and may yet continue over the coming months, a successful turnaround is likely for a large proportion of the FTSE 100’s members.Investors who are able to buy a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares may be able to capitalise on their low valuations to generate high returns. This process may take time, but could improve your prospects of building a portfolio that is valued at over £1m in the coming years. See all posts by Peter Stephenslast_img read more

first_img Pride and honour: Oxford celebrate last year’s Varsity match win 33-15 over Cambridge “Excuse me for being human,” tweeted England footballer Raheem Sterling after dropping out of a Euro 2016 qualifier because of fatigue a few weeks ago. It’s a tweet that would resonate with Jacob Taylor, the man charged, as Oxford University captain, with steering the Dark Blues to an historic feat in this year’s Varsity Match at Twickenham.Never before have Oxford won five successive matches against their Cambridge counterparts, but that’s the prize on offer for Taylor following wins by 21-10, 28-10, 26-19 and 33-15, the last three of them coming under former Sale Sharks professional John Carter.With Taylor away, Carter attended a publicity event recently at which he pinpointed the moment last year when a group of talented individuals became a team.Oxford were on tour in Biarritz and Carter, disappointed by the amount of time players spent on their mobiles instead of engaging with those around them, was glad when a surfing session was arranged for the whole squad. The size of the waves, however, took them by surprise and fear replaced the gaiety as the players struggled in the swell. “It brought the group closer together and was a pivotal moment for us,” says Carter.Wallaby flyer: Jacob Taylor has represented Australia at Sevens levelThis year’s Oxford team has had no such epiphany but in Taylor, a student of anthropology at Keble College, the Dark Blues have a leader deeply appreciative of person-centred philosophy.“That anecdote about the surfing highlights the importance of non-rugby interaction and getting to know people off the field. Those moments when you share quite euphoric or threatening occasions, such as battling huge waves or being in a country where they don’t speak your language, are when you have to rely on team-mates.“John believes, as I do, in getting beyond the surface layer and interacting with players in a true way. That happens in the long term for any team but we only have a three-month window so must deliberately accelerate that process. It’s more crucial than the technical skills and we spend a serious amount of time together in the Michaelmas term.“I’ve done some research on this and last year we spent 25-30 hours a week in each other’s company, whether on the field, eating meals, in the gym or having physio. John spent more like 40-50 hours a week with the team, so for some it’s like a full-time job. We have a group of highly skilled athletes, everyone in the team can catch and pass a ball. But it’s hard to gel that team, to achieve that click.”Lessons from ChinaIt’s not a common word in sports terminology but stems from Taylor’s life in academia. The 26-year-old Australian was brought up in rural NSW, where he played rugby league before being introduced to union aged 13 at boarding school in Canberra. He studied social anthropology and Chinese Studies at Sydney University and has spent a lot of time in China. He speaks Mandarin and did a thesis called ‘Tackling rugby in China’, an analysis of what the game means to players there and what goes in at the human level.“I’m doing a masters now and part of it is trying to figure out the dynamics of cooperation and social bonding. Team dynamics. In the pro environment the level of analysis behind performance is thorough. A rugby player is classed as a rugby player but that’s too surface level. There’s a diversity of talents and personalities within a team, they’re not rugby robots. Treating a rugby player as a human being, and enabling that emotional health and energy to flourish in a meaningful way, is at the heart of all great sides.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Full-back Taylor will be the sixth Australian skipper in 12 seasons at Oxford, following Brett Robinson (2001), John Allen (2003), David Lubans (2004), Joe Roff (2007) and Nick Haydon (2010). Two years ago he was vice-captain of the Australian sevens team, with whom he played for more than three years before taking a break from rugby last year.A foot fracture delayed his start to this season, but he went on the pre-season tour to Russia, where Oxford beat St Petersburg University 83-3 and RC Slava 42-5.“The tour was part of our journey and one of the most crucial steps. It was purely a rugby team focus so was an incredible opportunity to create energy within the team without other distractions,” says Taylor, who, with Cambridge captain Harry Peck, talks about the Varsity Match build-up in our video below.“We saw two great cities in St Petersburg and Moscow and experienced the cultural diversity.St Petersburg was more of a training week but we were disappointed not to be tested more by Slava because they’re a pro side. But our hosts embraced the game of rugby, the camaraderie and sportsmanship. The people-to-people interaction was special, especially given such antagonism on an international relations level. Rugby offers a unique platform to connect as humans.”Returning BluesSaracens’ Charlie Hodgson, Wasps’ Kearnan Myall and Hartpury College’s Wayne Thompson help Oxford with coaching, under director of coaching James Wade, and the Dark Blues have plenty of on-field Varsity experience at their disposal. It includes the front row that set the platform for last year’s victory, with Ian Williams, Nick Gardner and Lewis Anderson playing havoc with the Cambridge scrum – two tries came directly from Oxford’s dominance.“Lewis has played in four Varsity Matches, Nick is going into his third and Ian (one Blue) trained with London Welsh over the summer and is fit, strong and mentally in a very positive place. But it would be naïve to think we can bank on the same dominance as we had last year. Reading too much into what has gone before is dangerous. All four of our previous wins were created in unique and one-off circumstances.”This year’s Varsity Match is dedicated to the 55 Blues who fell in World War One. Two of that number, Reginald Hands and Stephen Steyn, were pioneers of the scholarship system set up in 1903 under the will of Cecil Rhodes. A century on, Taylor is a Rhodes scholar himself and the commemoration to fallen heroes merely adds to the honour he feels at being asked to lead out the Oxford side.“One of the defining metaphors for the current Oxford University team is to try to replicate the spirit of the Army in all we do. It will be a privilege to pay our respects to the 55 Blues who gave their lives.”center_img A surfing fright lay behind the Dark Blues’ victory last year and the new skipper, Jacob Taylor is hoping for more of the same ahead of the Twickenham showdown For more on the Varsity Match commemoration, watch the video below.

first_imgOn Sept. 19, 1981, the AFL-CIO, under pressure from the rank and file as well as union locals throughout the country, organized a Solidarity Day march in Washington, D.C., that drew over half a million people. It was the first national demonstration by organized labor in decades, and perhaps the only one since.The events leading up to this march were both historic and important. The event that led up to the march was the strike, beginning Aug. 3 of that year, of 15,000 air traffic controllers, members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, who walked out and struck against their employer, the Federal Aviation Administration. Higher wages were not the central issue in the PATCO strike. The main issues were understaffing, which also impacted on the safety of commercial airline travelers, forced overtime and stress-related illnesses, both physical and emotional, that had forced many controllers into either early retirement or long absences from work. The response of the Ronald Reagan administration was swift and brutal. Reagan warned the workers that if they did not return to work within two days, he would invoke the anti-union Taft-Hartley Act and terminate all the workers. There were to be no negotiations to end the strike, but only total surrender to all the demands of the government. The strikers rejected this extortion, and 12,000 workers stood fast and remained on the picket line. Many participated in mass civil disobedience, which led to dozens of arrests and imprisonment. AFL-CIO failed to actSadly, despite the outpouring of working-class support for the strike action to defy the ruling class, reflected in the Solidarity march a month later, the AFL-CIO leadership became both hesitant and frightened. It put a brake on calls for a general strike, as well as any further broader mobilizations of direct action called by other unions. In point of fact, the AFL-CIO told other unions representing the airline industry to return to work and ignore PATCO picket lines. The results, clearly seen within a year, were disastrous and foreboding. Isolated by the lack of a proactive stance by the AFL-CIO, PATCO was outlawed by the courts and the Reagan administration. Active members were blacklisted and marked against further employment that had anything to do with the profession of air traffic control. This also gave the green light for the ruling class to open up a barrage of attacks against the labor movement. Interestingly, the mouthpiece for the capitalist class, the Wall Street Journal, stated just as much in an Aug. 6, 1981, editorial, saying Reagan should break the strike “for all sorts of far-reaching reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with relations between the Federal Aviation Administration and PATCO.” It added that “more important are the commitments to rebuild military strength, to restore the dollar to soundness, to cut taxes [on the wealthy, of course!] and regulations, to resist Soviet imperialism [sic], and to curb the wild ascent of federal spending.”So there you have it. The die was cast and the script was written for defeats in other labor struggles throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Notable were Hormel Meat Packing, where the United Food and Commercial Workers refused to support Local P-9 in its struggle against a 23 percent wage cut; the defeat of Phelps Dodge copper miners in Arizona, where after a three-year struggle the corporate giant carried out the largest decertification in U.S. labor history, decertifying 35 locals in 13 different unions, an act that was declared legal by the National Labor Relations Board; and the defeat of the Greyhound bus drivers, represented by the Amalgamated Transit Union, when 12,000 workers walked off the job, as well as many other labor struggles where the ruling class was emboldened by the defeat of PATCO.Business unionism vs. social unionismThe systemic root causes of the crisis in labor result from a number of factors, chief among them total reliance and dependence on the Democratic Party. This is the model of “business unionism,” as opposed to social unionism, which takes a holistic approach to what unions should look like, i.e., mobilizing the constituent base, nonconcessionary bargaining, the fight against globalization of capital, international solidarity with other workers, especially in developing countries, and an anti-capitalist framework for struggle.The AFL-CIO has a blind spot when it comes to the Democratic Party and its bipartisan unity with the Republican Party and the ruling class on deregulation of the economy, cutbacks in social services and the privatization of jobs in the public sector, as well as the increasing ability of capitalism to outsource industrial as well as high-tech jobs. Most important are both parties’ alliance with the ruling class on wars and imperialism and their promoting the idea that the working class has a common interest with its employer. An exemplary model of social unionism, on the other hand, can be seen in the recent victory of the school bus drivers in Boston. In 2013, Veolia Transportation, now known as Transdev, contracted with the city of Boston to run the school buses. It soon started violating central provisions of the union contract of Local 8751 of the United Steelworkers of America.  The modus operandi of the company was to break the union. When the union leadership was falsely accused of instigating a wildcat strike, Transdev fired four officers of the local. However, if Transdev had done its research it would have found that Local 8751 was not your typical union. The union won its first contract in 1978 and has fought against the attempt to resegregate the schools. It has also built a rock-solid relationship with the parents of the children, as well as community groups. Some 98 percent of the local’s 900 members are people of color: Haitian, African-American, Latino/a and Cape Verdean. The local has been involved with the anti-war movement, the struggle against racism and support for Palestine, as well as demonstrating for LGBTQ rights. This past Dec. 23, members not only ratified a four-year contract, with back pay, but also won back the four fired union officers, who had faced red-baiting because some are members and leaders of Workers World Party. This is not only a victory of the school bus drivers and their union but a victory and a model for all unions and the working class in general. Progressives and the left need to start from the bottom up in supporting and mobilizing unions, and using class struggle unionism as a model.Part 2: From 1995 to 2005, top-down changes in AFL-CIOFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This understatedly classy space will charm you with its dark wood paneled interior and simply crafted menu. The name Harlowe’s comes from Clarissa Harlowe Barton, the great-great-great aunt of one of the founders, who helped found the Red Cross in Massachusetts. Her name pays homage to the early 1900s vibe of the restaurant. In addition to a choice of four affordably priced French Dip sandwiches – roast beef, slow roasted pork dip, turkey dip and braised lamb dip – Harlowe’s has a distinctive beer menu. Since the owners also manage the Bottle Room in Whittier, it comes as no surprise that their alcohol program is top notch. Although they focus on locally made beers, they also carry Van Steerberg Van De Garre directly from Belgium. This Belgian Tripel is only available at Harlowe’s and The Bottle Room. Aside from the Van De Garre, the Bread Pudding also appears on both menus. Chef Alcazar describes it as the perfect dessert – made with fluffy brioche bread, salted caramel and candied hazelnuts. The Chocolate Torte is another winning end to a meal. This decadent tasting flourless dark chocolate cake has a light texture and is complimented by milk chocolate ganache and a sauce made from caramelized blackberries and blueberries. It’s served with a dollop of maple sweetened chantilly cream and crushed hazelnuts. Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * “It’s a very simple sandwich with perfectly roasted beef, homemade au jus beef broth and soft French bread,” he said.

This brings the year-to-date total of credit risk transferred to $7.3 billion on $196 billion of single-family mortgages.“Freddie Mac is committed to the stability of the U.S. housing finance system, and CRT is a key component,” said Mike Reynolds, VP, Credit Risk Transfer. “We will continue to offer attractive opportunities for private capital to participate in our program as we expand CRT coverage across our book of business.”Freddie Mac issued a total of six STACR and ACIS transactions in the third quarter—three on-the-run deals (DNA and HQA) and three seasoned deals (ARMR and FTR). As a result of STACR and ACIS on the run transactions this quarter, Freddie Mac transferred between 80% (high LTV HQA series) and 90% (low LTV DNA series) of the credit risk on the underlying reference pools. Since the first CRT transaction in 2013, Freddie Mac’s single-family CRT program has cumulatively transferred $51 billion in credit risk on nearly $1.4 trillion in mortgages.Freddie Mac posted a $1.7 Billion net income for Q3 2019. According to the GSEs, these incomes represent yet another step toward adding the capital necessary to move toward private ownership.“In the third quarter, Freddie Mac took an important first step toward exiting conservatorship by adding more than $1.8 billion to our total equity, bringing our capital reserve to $6.7 billion,” said David M. Brickman, Freddie Mac CEO. “As we look to the future, we are squarely focused on serving our mission and meeting the milestones necessary to move the company forward.”Freddie Mac reports that conservatorship capital reduced by $5.2 billion from the prior year, due in part to credit risk transfer (CRT) activity, home price appreciation, legacy asset dispositions, and a decrease in deferred tax assets.
