It has already affected different parts of the economy in ways that we previously wouldn’t have thought possible. This has opened up some great opportunities to buy shares in businesses at bargain prices.However, investors shouldn’t rush out and buy shares just because they look cheap.The economy will suffer for years, and many businesses and industries will be severely impacted. Already we’ve seen the near-collapse of certain aviation and travel companies.In times like these, investors might flock to the corporations which are trading profitably and have good management structures in place. Therefore, these are likely to still look a bit on the expensive side to value investors. At the other end of the spectrum are the businesses that are riddled with debt, with little competitive advantage over rivals.Fair pricesAs value investors, we want to find the middle ground. The ideal situation is when we think the market has overreacted to a piece of news and unfairly priced the shares.I love picking up a bargain. But as Warren Buffett says, it’s “far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.” Often as investors, we want to make the most amount of money possible in the quickest amount of time. We seek out bargain FTSE 100 shares, which can often be dangerous if the proper research is not undertaken.Instead, I’d look for a business that has a predictable revenue stream, low volumes of debt and an economic moat. Over the long term, I believe these qualities will best reward investors offer the least amount of risk. Especially when a second market crash might be around the corner. When it comes down to it, I’d rather part with my hard-earned cash for shares in a business that I can hold for decades without worrying about the bad news its latest announcement might bring.DividendsDividends are a bit of a divisive topic at the moment. Some investors understandably love getting a regular payment from their holdings.However, in light of the market crash, those investing for growth might think a business should use its capital to fund its core activities and pay off any debt obligations. Famously, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway doesn’t pay dividends. That, of course, doesn’t mean the Sage of Omaha doesn’t love receiving them.Personally, when evaluating a company in the current climate, I take note of prospective yields but I’m not convinced they are always totally dependable.What I’d do nowIt’s still possible to grab a bargain following the FTSE 100 market crash. However, there’s more to buying shares than price. This is an unprecedented and potentially dangerous time. Pick what you buy carefully.

Six Nations: Wales 22-9 Ireland – Five things we learnt

first_imgWith the bulk of rugby’s in-play time taken up by rucks and mauls it is time that we changed the way that rugby is televised. As with golf and putting, rugby’s rucks and mauls are a game within a game and require a zoomed-in shot to be fully appreciated. The problem is, when the camera zooms in to the ruck or maul, the full expanse of the pitch is lost and so is the viewers appreciation of what is happening from a wider perspective. The simple solution is for broadcasters to provide a ‘ruck and maul’ app which can be viewed on a tablet or PC in conjunction with the TV.Wide lens: Viewers like to appreciate the bigger picture but can close-ups on rucks and mauls educate fans furtherThe app would show only a close-up view of the breakdown and its intricacies. Many people already use a ‘second screen’ for watching sport – one showing social media or betting applications for instance. The ‘ruck and maul’ application would also add to the in-stadium experience – let’s face it, most of us have to watch the game again on leaving the stadium to get the full picture. This new format would also aid the understanding of the game to newcomers, who may wonder why Sam Warburton received such praise for his performance against Ireland, without having seemingly carried the ball a great distance or made a break. Good idea? Tweet me @thepaulwilliams with your thoughts. Wales win using the whole pitchDuring the past three to four seasons under Warren Gatland, the only time that the Welsh players have been allowed to use the wider limits of the pitch is during the lap in which they say thanks to the fans. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case against Ireland. As throughout the whole tournament, the basic platforms were good. The scrum and lineout were both test standard, the scrum ran at 80% (4 out of 5) and the lineout at an immaculate 100%. Lions standard breakdown work from Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric supplied Rhys Webb with ball that was as rapid as his decision making and slowed Irish ball down to a ‘Jeremy Corbyn’ rapidity of thought. Wales’ defence was solid, particularly some vital spot tackling from Liam Williams, and they defended Ireland’s maul as well as anyone ever has.Thorn in the side: Rhys Webb was a handful for Ireland on Friday nightBut defending the ball hasn’t been the issue during this tournament. Using it has. And that is what changed. Jon Davies didn’t the kick the ball once in 80 minutes – a weapon upon which he is, at times, overly reliant. A new emphasis on moving the ball wide, more quickly, put George North into spaces, not faces. The result was North having a ‘YouTube’ game, not the ‘YouWhat?’ game from two weeks prior. Rhys Webb continued his immaculate form, blending rapid narrow channel runs with expansive passing – his delivery for North’s first try was exemplary. But perhaps the greatest praise must come, not for expansive play from the backs (from whom it should be expected} but from Rob Evans’ remarkable ‘miss-four’ – a pass easily as good as the one thrown by Jordie Barrett that morning for the Hurricanes against the Chiefs. This was a much-needed victory and progression in style for Wales and will have gone some way to calming the understandably twitchy Welsh supporters and media.Awesome maul defenceGeorge North will get the front page plaudits, largely because a maul defence doesn’t make for a great cover photo, but it was Wales’ maul defence which deserved the full colour spread. To beat Ireland you simply have to stop their five metre ‘catch and drive’ – and Wales did. The efficiency of Wales’ maul defence lay largely in the variety of tactics that were used.No way through: Johnny Sexton is covered by the Welsh defenceMixing up the immediate tackling of the first carrier, with contesting of the Irish lineout, meant that Ireland couldn’t simply go through the motions and were forced to approach each situation differently. Nullifying the Irish maul isn’t the sole reason that Ireland failed to score a single try in 80 minutes, but it is a significant factor, and one for which the Welsh team and coaches deserve praise.Tipuric and WarburtonThree months ago they were referred to as Tipuric or Warburton. The oil and water of Welsh rugby. Many sadly loathed one and loved the other. The Irish performance confirmed that they are now not only a pair, but arguably the best pair in the championship. Their groundwork was immaculate and visibly slowed Ireland’s ruck speed. The slowed ruck speed and an injured Conor Murray meant that the hugely impressive Jonny Sexton had to quite literally try every play in his considerable book to find space on the field. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Wales emerged victorious from a titanic battle between two Celts intent on gaining bragging rights at the Principality Stadium, but what did we learn?center_img Tag team: Justin Tipuric and Sam Warburton have combined brilliantly for Wales in the Six NationsTogether, the pair completed 41 tackles (21 for Warburton, 20 for Tipuric) forcing Jamie Heaslip ever wider in the search for easier carries and even reduced the mightily impressive CJ Stander to what for him, will be regarded as a standstill. The question of Warburton or Tipuric is over. The answer is both.Jamie Roberts – the perfect man for the perfect momentThese are unusual times for Jamie Roberts. The man around whom nearly a decade of Welsh rugby, and numerous successful campaigns, were built, now finds himself on the bench. It is a moment and a role that comes to all great players and it was perhaps fitting to see him score such a defining try for Wales. Many had questioned his selection as an ‘impact’ player from the bench, but if there was one player who you would hand pick to grab a loose ball, eight yards from the posts, and drive over the line, it was Roberts.Sweet celebration: Jamie Roberts will have enjoyed his late try for Wales immenselyWith the game having naturally slowed after 77 mins of lung burn, it was the charge down of Taulupe Faletau which allowed the ball to fall into Roberts’ hands. It was then the unenviable task of Jonny Sexton to hop on Roberts back, like a child playing with his dad, and be carried over the line. Vintage Roberts, unstoppableWe need to change the way we watch rugby On the run: George North goes on the rampage late in the Wales v Ireland game last_img read more

TCU recruiting ‘outside of the box’

TCU won 94-92.

He inherited a Big 12 Conference program, but with a record that didn’t attract top talent.Dixon and his staff developed a two-pronged recruiting strategy: focus on Texas, especially the metroplex, and look outside the box, said assistant head coach David Patrick. In this case, instead of trying to compete nationally, the Horned Frogs went global. Patrick is from Australia and that was the first stop. He played professionally for the Canberra Cannons of the National Basketball League from 1999-01 and was named Rookie of the Year in 2000. He’s coached at Saint Mary’s in Moraga, California and LSU.Some of his college recruits have gone on to play in the NBA – most recently his godson Ben Simmons who played under him at LSU. Simmons was the No.1 overall draft pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2016 NBA draft.Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons dribbles upcourt during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Houston Rockets on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017, in Houston. Philadelphia won 115-107. (AP Photo/Eric Christian Smith)The Simmons connection attracted redshirt freshman forward Kouat Noi.“I look up to Ben Simmons a lot,” he said. “I used to remember when we used to play NBA 2K growing up when we were 11 years old and for me to follow the same path he’s following and for DP to be a mentor for me as well, I feel like I’m heading in the right direction now.”New Zealand is also part of the game plan. Big man Angus McWilliam, a 6’11” center from New Zealand who graduates in the spring, has committed. Dixon played professional basketball in New Zealand for the Hawke’s Bay Hawks from 1989-1990. While at Pittsburgh, he recruited Steven Adams – now the starting center for the Oklahoma City Thunder – from New Zealand.Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams (12) dunks over Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes (46) in the first quarter of an NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)Patrick said the lifestyle in DFW is also compatible to that of the players they target from Australia. “I think what’s unique about Dallas-Fort Worth is it’s similar: It’s a big city with people who are easy to get along with because it’s not an east coast city or west coast city where it’s going 100 miles an hour.”Accessibility is also key.  “We have direct flights to Melbourne and direct flights to Sydney, and that makes it easier when you’re traveling and your parents can come on a direct flight to see you play,” Patrick said. But in the end, it’s the investment in TCU basketball that has made Fort Worth a basketball destination.“When you’re pitching TCU and a great institution, Power Five school in the Big 12, you get to play for a great coach in Jamie Dixon that has a resume that speaks for itself, it’s an easy sell,” Patrick said. “Now you have these brand new facilities that are available to them, so it’s an easy sell to be honest.”With that being said, the Horned Frogs have become an international team as a third of the roster was born outside of the United States: senior forward Vladimir Brodziansky hails from Slovakia, freshman forward Lat Mayen and Noi are Australians, senior forward Ahmed Hamdy is from Egypt and freshman center Kevin Samuel comes from Barbuda, an island in the Caribbean. “I think the international pitch is a great and easy sell for us,” Patrick said.

TV station illegally holds five of its journalists for 60 hours

Two of them, Verónica Lazzaro and Carina Alvarez, had to be hospitalised.“A labour dispute should be resolved by dialogue and negotiation, not by such brutal methods,” the press freedom organisation said. “We condemn the behaviour of Canal 9’s management, we voice our solidarity with the journalists who were illegally detained and we call on the station’s owner to provide an explanation.”The five journalists, all Canal 9 staff members, were initially prevented from entered the TV station’s headquarters by security personnel on 7 January because they were protesting against the dismissal of five fellow employees.After forcing their way into they building, the journalists were held their against their will for the next 60 hours. The station’s management cut off water, electricity and air-conditioning although there was a heat wave in Buenos Aires. The detained journalists were also denied access to toilets. Two of them, Lazzaro and Alvarez, finally had to be rushed to hospital.Canal 9’s management has been at odds with its staff since the station was acquired in January 2007 by a US businessman of Mexican origin, Remigio González González. The management wants to shed 200 posts. The staff say they were never notified they were being let go. According to the employees, the new management has reacted to staff discontent with disciplinary measures and unannounced dismissals, while some journalists have even been placed under video surveillance.

Celebrate the Rest of Spring Italian Style with Celestino Ristorante’s New Black Truffle Menu!

first_imgThough it’s tempting to hop on a plane headed east to get an authentic taste of Italy in the spring, it’s not always schedule-friendly or cost effective. Lucky for us, Pasadena eatery Celestino Ristorante, part of the famed Drago Family restaurant group, is offering a brand new menu highlighting the flavors of the season on their new spring Black Truffle menu with a collection of authentic, old-world eats!Start your flavor journey with Calogero’s Antipasti offerings, beginning with a Mushroom Soup with Black Truffle, or the Soft Polenta with Mushroom in Fontina Cheese and Shaved Black Truffle Sauce. The simplicity of Drago’s approach is highlighted in the Tuna Carpaccio with Mushrooms and Truffles.In the Pasta-Risotto-Ravioli section of the menu, a Drago personal favorite is the Ravioli Stuffed with Quail Eggs in Asparagus Sauce with Shaved Truffles, but the Risotto with Mascarpone Cheese and Shaved Truffle has proven to be a customer favorite as well. Mixed vegetables are also perfectly highlighted in the Tagliatella Primaverille, with flat wide pasta, mixed vegetables and shaved truffle.One of the main dishes in the Carne e Pesce section that Calogero feels perfectly represents spring, and compliments the Black Summer Truffles at Celestino is the Filet of Dover Sole poached with julienne Vegetables and Summer Truffles. But these days, Drago is most in love with the Veal Scaloppini with Prosciutto, Sage, Provolone Cheese and Truffle.“It’s a classic Italian dish,” Drago explains. “It’s a very fine piece of veal that receives a burst of flavor from ingredients like tomatoes, wine, garlic, capers and oregano, and then is combined with the prosciutto, provolone and Truffle. People like it because it’s simple and delicious.”Rounding out the Dolce section of the menu is the ultimate dessert – Tartufo Ice Cream. The word “Tartufo” means “Truffle” in Italian. “Tartufo” is well known as an ice cream dessert that is also known as “Bomba”. At Celestino, Calogero has paired three fabulous flavors together giving diners a taste of Chocolate, Vanilla and Pistachio to complete their meal. Says Drago, “I wanted to give people a little bit of everything, and something fun at the end.”Whether you choose to refresh your taste buds by ordering a la carte or by creating a four-course Black Summer Truffle feast for $58.00, no doubt you will fall in love with Celestino Ristorante’s version of Italy in Spring, right here in Pasadena.For over 18 years, Celestino Ristorante has delighted the palates of Pasadena locals and travelers from all over the world, treating them to a taste of authentic Italian cuisine in the valleys of Southern California.
