Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The day has finally arrived, and US citizens are waiting with bated breath to learn the outcome of the Trump vs Biden presidential race. Investors around the world are anxious too, because this is an election as unprecedented as the whole of 2020. And who will win, is still anyone’s guess. Nevertheless, I don’t think investors should impulsively react to the US election result. And that’s because, whatever the outcome is, I think stock market reverberations will be short-lived.Take a long-term outlookBillionaire investor Warren Buffett and others like him, such as the UK’s Nick Train, are advocates of long-term investing. I think this is a great way to approach it. It’s simple, effective, and the barriers to entry are low. Best of all, by taking a long-term approach, the day-to-day volatility of the markets can largely be ignored. Which is why I think the US presidential election is a prime time to ignore the fluctuations and sit tight.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’s not to say it won’t throw up a buying opportunity. When I say ignore, I really mean don’t panic-sell. If I see my favourite stock prices dip during a time like this, it could well be a chance to buy. But I will add these to a long-term portfolio for a minimum of five to 10 years.Government stimulusWhat happens stateside usually has a knock-on effect on the UK financial markets. The US is still suffering massively from the coronavirus crisis, and its citizens are waiting for news of further stimulus. In the event of a Trump win, he has vowed to bring about a massive stimulus package. In this case, I imagine the stock market will react positively. However, if Biden wins, he too is likely to do the same, so in either case, the US stock market should gain some ground once stimulus is in place. Until then, volatility is to be expected. While volatile periods can provide perfect buying opportunities, it’s really important not to get emotionally involved. Avoid selling when volatility is high.Market volatility aheadIn the UK, we’re still enduring the Brexit fallout and an imminent lockdown throughout England. Both these events are causing the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 to tremble. I think the UK stock markets will probably react to the US election results, temporarily. Again, this will be short-lived, and the state of the wider economy matters more to investors.Until a vaccine is in widespread circulation, I think the stock markets globally will endure further volatility. That’s why I like a set and forget approach to investing. I don’t think investors should worry too much about the US election result. What will be, will be. With time, the stock market volatility will give way to calm. Meanwhile, it’s a great opportunity to research quality stocks and buy bargains for the long haul.

It is located in a newly developed residential area full of buildings with similar height and shape, and occupies the very first lot of one monotonous block on edge, facing commercial area on the opposite side. I wanted the project reflect this site condition to stand as an ambiguous alien between residential and commercial block, as a heterogeneous thing from neighboring repetitious buildings.Save this picture!© Ryu, In KeunSome logics from surrounding condition and local regulation derived the shape of this alien.Save this picture!© Ryu, In KeunFollowing the local regulation, every ground-floor of this district can be occupied only by commercial facilities, and at least half of street-level facade should be made transparent. Most of the buildings followed this rule too much. They raised the mass up, emptied the ground-floor, and replaced the street-level facade with entirely transparent show-windows. This detached these buildings from the ground, and they lost weight to stand on the ground. However, I longed for my alien standing heavily on the ground as a ‘cornerstone’ of the town, as an unusual landmark between two blocks with opposite facilities. Instead of whole show-windows, large holes were dug out of the walls and this let the main facade material continuing down from top to hit the ground. However, by positioning these holes on corners, the building gives hint that the housing mass is actually lifted up and the street-level facade is not a structural thing indeed.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Floor PlanAnother regulation is obliging the sloppy roof shape. This also worked very well and filled the skyline mostly with A-shaped roof with gables. However, in effort of forming one unified mass, I did not want a separate roof from its body. The direction of the slope was reversed to give the roof V-shape. This led the main material extending to the top, and hid the roof material inward. The mass looked higher and more solid than surrounding buildings though it actually is not, and became more alien.Save this picture!© Ryu, In KeunSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Ryu, In KeunApplication of one single material is taking a great role as well to make one solid body from bottom to the top. Ceramic panels of 0.3m by 1.2m are covering overall facades. Each panel has thickness of just 3mm with reinforcement of glass-fiber behind. This is for shaping smoother cured surface by minimizing gaps between panels. In combination of these continuous material and every curved corner, the building mass transforms itself into a huge porcelain sculpture.Save this picture!© Ryu, In KeunProject gallerySee allShow lessDouble Helix House / Onishimaki + Hyakudayuki ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBAAN 0.60 / Integrated FieldSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:5 Ha-dong, Yeongtong-gu, Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, South KoreaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Justice RG Avachat after hearing Advocates Pradnya Talekar and Madhavi Ayyappan issued notice to the respondents, State of Maharashtra, Maharashtra Prison Department, DG (Prisons) and the Undertrial Review Committee. The next date of hearing is April 8. Petitioners are lodged at Harsul Jail where the sanctioned strength is 589 and the total number of inmates as on date is 1828. “Only 74 prisoners were released on temporary basis pursuant to the decision of the High Powered Committee. As such, the prison remains overcrowded even today, and no social distancing has been possible. It poses a certain risk to the inmates, the officials guarding prisons and the nation at large which is using its entire might to battle the situation”, the petition states. The Supreme Court in an order dated March 23 directed all states and Union Territories to set up high level committees to determine the class of prisoners who could be released on parole for four to six weeks in order to avoid overcrowding in prisons. Consequently, State of Maharashtra constituted a High Powered Committee on March 24 chaired by the Chairman of the Maharashtra State Legal Services Authority. In a meeting on March 25, guidelines for release of the prisoners were framed by the Committee. The Committee directed prisoners (both undertrial and convicts) who are accused of offences punishable with 7 years or less, shall be released on temporary bail or parole. Thereafter, the State Home Minister in a press note notified the release of 11,000 inmates from 45 prisons across the State for 45 days on emergency parole. However, the petitioners argued that the High Powered Committee has made “a rather artificial distinction” between the prisoners who are accused of offences under the IPC and the Special Acts. Due to the said unreasonable classification drawn by the Committee, only some 1000 prisoners have been released, thereby frustrating the very purpose of the directions of the Apex Court, the petition states. Although the petitioners are accused of offences under the MPID Act wherein the maximum punishment is 6 years, making them otherwise eligible for bail, they are left out due to the arbitrary classification made by the Committee. As reported earlier, senior lawyer SB Talekar had written to the Chief Minister and Home Minister of the State to implement SC’s order and soon thereafter, a group of 130 lawyers including senior advocates like Indira Jaising, Gayatri Singh, Mihir Desai, Gayatri Singh, Sanjay Singhvi, BA Desai wrote to the CM and Chief Justice urging them to consider releasing those charged under serious offences like MCOCA, PMLA, UAPA and NDPS Act.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Story

GuruOn 18 Dec 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article This week’s guruBlunkett’s immigrant strategy in right messGuru is exasperated with Bulldog Blunkett this week. One minute the Government seems to be listening to the enlightened debate onmeeting crippling skills shortages with overseas labour. Then the next,Blunkett is being all Jack Straw-ish, taking a tough line on immigrants bycalling for them to make more effort to integrate. Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, said his party would use the HomeSecretary’s remarks in its campaign literature. He said, “He’s using thesame thing we’ve been saying for the past few years, and he’s now jumping onthe bandwagon.” Surely one of the keys to reducing racial tension is to ensure there is aneffective strategy in place to get ethnic minorities, immigrants,asylum-seekers and refugees into work – or is Guru just being an idealistic,sandal-wearing leftie? Keeping Posh in frocks is key role In the big money stakes of the Premiership, fame comes at a price. Just askManchester United’s Fabien Barthez and Wes Brown – last season’s leaguechampions and star attractions at one of the world’s most glamorous clubs, thisseason – chumps. Despite being named the world’s richest club by Deloitte & Touche, theycan’t win a game for toffee. Bearing in mind Alex Ferguson’s legendary temper, Guru wouldn’t want to bein either of those players’ boots after their “individual” errors. So, spare a thought for Man Utd’s new signing – no, not Chelsea’s MarcelDesailly – but Rebus HR. Its skills have been drafted in to look after theclub’s hefty payroll. While the company will not be exposed to the volatile expectations of 50,000fans each week, hell hath no fury like Mrs Beckham if there were to be aproblem with the wages. ‘Tis the season to be jolly (sick) OK, do you want the good news or the bad news about Christmas parties? Bad itis, then. Guru has discovered that Christmas parties will cost UK plcs £110mthis year. Not only that – about 2 million staff are likely to take time off because ofover-indulgence on food and drink, according to research by Norwich UnionHealthcare. A fifth of all party animals are expected to take more than threedays off, with staff in the South East the worst culprits. The good news is that the cost of employee absence is likely to be £10mcheaper than last year – “Phew”, you sigh.hen parties are a pain in the bumBOXTEXT: l Guru has discovered thatthere can be heavier prices to pay at the Christmas office party. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents is nowwarning partygoers that the office bash can be physically dangerous. The biggestrisk this year will be those drunkards who decide to photocopy their bottomsfor posterity (Guru apologises for that one). The charity believes there will be a surge in people trying toemulate the actress in the Virgin mobile phone TV advert who not only photocopies her bum, but thendistributes the images out of the window. If the urge grips you at work after one ladle too many ofmulled wine, then remember the wise words of the safety experts. “It is adaft and irresponsible act and often ends up with the copier glass having to be surgically removed from theirbottoms,” a spokesman told a buttock-clenching Guru. ch Compulsory equal pay Comments are closed.

Hudson Bike Share announces expansion to West New York, other townsThe Hudson Bike Share program is officially expanding to five cities in Hudson County, according to a recent press release. The parent company, P3 Global Management, also plans to make good on a promise from two years ago to have docking stations in towns besides Hoboken, where users can park their bikes.The program will add 260 new bikes and 35 new stations through Guttenberg, North Bergen, Weehawken, Bayonne, and West New York.The company is growing from its original 250 bikes and 29 stations in Hoboken, to now 560 bikes and 65 plus stations across all six cities, the release says.“We are extremely excited to start the expansion of our bike share program in Hudson County,” said Carlos Pujol, CEO of P3 Global Management.“A New Jersey program, conceived to serve the needs of local Hudson County residents, has logged over 300,000 rides since its inception in 2015. We’re excited to provide this service for the people of Hudson County, and appreciate their support. We look forward to bringing additional bikes and stations in the year ahead.”“We are excited to help increase mobility and connectivity for the residents of West New York,” said West New York Mayor Felix Roque in the release.Some locals criticized Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s decision to go with Hudson Bike Share in 2015 instead of CitiBike. Jersey City and Manhattan use the latter, which meant users in Hoboken could only ride the bikes within that city and not park them in nearby cities. On its website, Hudson Bike Share pledged in 2015 to have a few parking stations in other towns, but never made good.The system has also had some technical problems in Hoboken, where sometimes, users punch a code into a bike to rent it, only to eventually get an error message saying the bike isn’t working.When asked about this for a recent Hoboken Reporter article, the company said they were working on the problems.There are plans to expand the program even further in 2018, according to the release.Watch out for PSE&G scamsPublic Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G) urges customers to be alert to payment scams. In the most common scam, phony callers lie and say there is an unpaid balance and demand immediate payment with a prepaid card. Recently the utility has received reports that scammers are using fake caller ID information to trick customers into thinking they are speaking with PSE&G.The only way to protect yourself against scams is to be cautious.“Just because the caller ID says it’s PSE&G, doesn’t mean it’s PSE&G,” said Greg Dunlap, PSE&G vice president of customer operations. “When in doubt, hang up and call the number listed on your bill or the PSE&G website.”While PSE&G accepts credit cards, prepaid cards, and money transfers to pay bills, they never demand a specific type of payment or threaten immediate service termination. Before terminating service, PSE&G alerts customers in a number of ways: messages on their bill, letters, and phone calls.Report all scam attempts by calling your utility and local police department and file a complaint with the FTC at www.ftc.gov/complaint.Thomas M. Venino recognized on Wall of Honor at Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical CenterHackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center has posthumously honored Thomas M. Venino, Sr., Esq., during a special Wall of Honor dedication ceremony in the hospital’s main lobby.Members of the Venino family, board members and team members all gathered together to pay tribute to Venino, described as as a well-loved and respected member of the Palisades family.“Mr. Venino will now be perpetually memorialized as a member of the Wall of Honor for his extraordinary efforts in advancing the mission of Palisades Medical Center and his many contributions to foster exceptional medical care for all members of the community,” said Anthony J. Passannante Jr., M.D., FACC, acting president of Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center.On Sept. 10, 1978, Venino and a group of committed volunteers from the North Hudson-South Bergen community helped fulfill a longstanding dream. What had once been North Hudson Hospital was relocated to a new home on the North Bergen waterfront – the site of the new Palisades Medical Center.“Mr. Venino and the other founders did everything that needed to be done to ensure that the hospital’s doors were open to serve our community,” said Dr. Passannante. “He was instrumental in galvanizing public support, purchasing the land and providing input on needed services and programs.”In the decades to follow, Tom and his late wife, Joan, served in many volunteer leadership roles for Palisades Medical Center and the Foundation – Tom as a member of the Board of Governors, serving as Chairman from 1978-81, and Joan as an officer and dedicated member of the Hospital Auxiliary. The Venino family’s dedicated service continues today as their son Thomas M. Venino, Jr., Esq., is a current member of the hospital’s Board of Governors.Venino, a long-time resident of Weehawken, was an attorney and community leader. Generations of the Venino family are well-known for managing Venino & Venino, Esqs, a North Bergen law firm which was established in 1913. In addition to his volunteer efforts and philanthropic support of Palisades Medical Center, Mr. Venino also supported countless non-profit and charitable organizations in our area.Menendez calls for investigation into reversal of EPA chemical safety standardsFollowing a report by the New York Times that exposed the Trump administration’s efforts to revise the way the federal government evaluates the health and environmental risks of hazardous chemicals, U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez has called on the EPA Inspector General Arthur A. Elkins Jr. to immediately investigate alleged political interference in EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.“I am writing to request that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of the Inspector General initiate an investigation into a recent New York Times report detailing political interference, suppression of science, and prioritization of industry recommendations over public health in EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, and throughout the agency at large,” Sen. Menendez’s letter said.He asked for an investigation into the suppression of science relating to the public health impacts of toxic and dangerous chemicals; the use of “administratively determined” hiring practices, and the extent to which these practices are used to circumvent EPA’s ethics or conflict of interest standards; and deference to industry requests, rather than scientific and technical analysis, in the context of the agency’s rulemaking process.

West New York School Board election is Nov. 7.Voters will head to the polls Nov. 7 to fill three open spots on the West New York school board. Eight people are running for the three spots. Two slates – each featuring three people – are on the ballot. There are also two separate candidates. Voters can choose any three.Children First is the slate backed by West New York Mayor Felix Roque. The slate features Jose Mendoza, who owns a marketing company in town; Maite Fernandez, president of the West New York Little League; and Board V.P. Damarys Gonzalez, the lone incumbent this year. Gonzalez is also the administrative assistant for the West New York Department of Public Safety. The slate has touted its efforts in district this year, including renovation of the Harry L. Bain Public School and the opening of the Freshman Academy.The Save Our Schools slate debuted last year as a grassroots alternative to Children First. It features Alex Navas, a resident who ran last year; Melinda Saunders, who also ran last year; and Nicholas Behncke, a frequent board critic. The group has criticized the board’s spending habits and has pushed for independent, third party testing of water, mold, and asbestos in the district’s schools, after Newark schools were found to have elevated lead in their water last year.Candidates John Smith, who unsuccessfully ran last year, and Johanna M. Ortez, round out the remaining contenders. Board members Steven Rodas and Dennise Mejia are vacating their seats. When the West New York Reporter tried getting voting hours from the town clerk’s office, the office directed the Reporter to call the school board.A person answering at the board office said she believed the voting hours were from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., but was not entirely sure. She requested contact information so the board could call back with the information. However, when asked for her name, she again requested the caller’s name instead. ×Saint Augustine School’s eighth grade participated in virtual online courses with a high school teacher from Union Catholic.

Pinkmans aims to be the “go-to place” for Bristol foodies, with Steven Whibley as a co-founder. Whibley said: “Bristol is recognised as the UK’s regional food capital, with its amazing food and drink culture, its distinct character and fantastic local produce, as well as the hills and the bridge, it’s the San Francisco of the UK. I can’t think of anywhere better to live and work.”Whibley used to run Le Pain Quotidien (LPQ) in London, which he left in 2011. He wanted to create a new range of bread, which was the inspiration behind Pinkmans, which he runs with Troels Bendix, who he met while at LPQ, and Michael Engler. Engler was the former head pastry chef at L’enclume restaurant in Cumbria for nine years.Pinkmans has opened in the city centre, and specialises in breads and pastries, as well as catering for the lunch and evening meal markets, with offerings such as soup and meatballs. The bakery is also open until 10pm, to catch evening trade.Whibley said: “We decided to open on Park Street because although Bristol has a number of great bakeries, there was nobody baking on what we see as Bristol’s most iconic street.As well as offering a takeaway service, there are also ledges for customers to perch at, and large communal tables. The open bakery kitchen’s wood-fired stone ovens produce bakes including ‘sour dough-nuts’ and sourdough pizza.Whibley added: “We know where every ingredient comes from and why. No artificial preservatives or colourings and no GM.”
