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.

This stock market crash is brutal. The FTSE 100 is down more than 2,200 points since mid-January, a drop of around 30%. Things could get worse before they get better. Yet I still think we are looking at a serious buying opportunity, especially if you are looking to use this year’s Stocks and Shares ISA allowance.When the world faces a crisis, stock markets crash. That’s what they do. As the outlook brightens, they rebound sharply. By investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA today, you could be nicely placed when they do.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 makes now a tempting time to invest £2k in the FTSE 100, to pick up top blue-chip stocks when they are down. The aim then is to hold on for the long term, to benefit from the higher returns you get from shares over the longer run.Markets have crashed beforeI am old enough to remember the 1987 crash on Black Monday, one of the fastest in history. I remember how the FTSE 100 crashed during the technology bubble, in the weeks after 9/11, and of course the financial crisis in 2008.It always comes as a shock. Investors look at their pensions and Stocks and Shares ISAs, and see they are worth less than before. That hurts.Many respond by diving into safer assets, such as cash and gold, and you might be tempted by that right now. The FTSE 100 could fall further. In the financial crisis, it fell by half. If the crisis drags on, putting more pressure on balance sheets, that could happen again.Start buying the FTSE 100 nowI wouldn’t throw in every penny at my disposal, as a result. I would secure this year’s Stocks and Shares ISA allowance, then start feeding money in, every time share prices dip. In the longer run, that seems the most sensible way to play today’s stock market crisis.After a bear market, history shows we enjoy a bull run. These are the ups and downs you get with equity investing. To make the most of this volatility, it makes sense to buy when shares are cheap, as they are now, rather than when they are expensive.You will never buy at the absolute bottom of the market, but by drip-feeding money into the market, you should still pick up bargain companies for your Stocks and Shares ISA. Look for firms with strong balance sheets, loyal customers, steady cash flows and low debt, as these will be better placed to survive and profit at the expense of weaker rivals.Some could even emerge from the crisis stronger, having boosted their market share at the expense of their rivals.Stocks and Shares ISA timeSpread your money between a range of FTSE 100 blue chips, looking for those whose share prices have been knocked by the stock market crash, but whose underlying business should hold firm. Target companies you would be happy to hold in 10 or 20 years, ideally longer.This crash is a great opportunity to build your wealth for the longer term.

Lee, Ph.D. Student in Social Work and Psychology, University of Michigan, and Shawna J. Lee, Associate Professor, Social Work, University of Michigan.Note: This article first published on theconversation.com.Fathers have a significant impact on their children’s well-being – an impact that begins even before the child is born. In fact, studies have shown that fathers who are involved during pregnancy have healthier children.During the early years of life, emotionally nourishing father-child relationships lay the foundation for lifelong health and well-being for children. Fathers who are involved during pregnancy also tend to stay involved over the long term. Indeed, the positive influence of father involvement can be felt throughout adolescence and young adulthood.Our research lab studies father-child relationships, and we recently looked at the question: What early parent education programs are out there to support fathers during the prenatal and postnatal periods? Our study, published on June 14 in the journal Pediatrics, suggested that there are not that many.Not many father-friendly early parent education programsStudies suggest that fathers want to be involved but may not know how to do so. Antonio Guillem/ShutterstockSpecifically, our systematic review examined U.S.-based parent programs for men during the perinatal period, i.e., pregnancy through the first year of life. We could identify only 19 programs (out of a total of 1,353 studies reviewed) that were considered “father-friendly.” Father-friendly was defined as involving or targeting fathers and including outcomes related to fathering, such as father involvement, father-infant interaction and father’s parenting knowledge.Most programs were offered in clinic or hospital settings. Programs ranged from general education programs (on childbirth, infant care and infant development) to relationship and co-parenting programs to clinical and case management programs.In addition to the small number of existing programs for fathers, most programs reviewed in the systematic review lacked evidence of improving key fathering outcomes. Relatedly, only three studies were considered high quality. These findings demonstrate the dearth of father-inclusive programs that yield promising outcomes.Overall, when it comes to education and support during the perinatal period, research shows that there are few parenting programs to prepare men for the magic moment when they welcome their new baby, even though this time has been identified as a critical window of opportunity to intervene to support fathers during their transition to fatherhood.Most existing programs are designed primarily for mothers. This is a missed opportunity, because fathers in the U.S. are increasingly involved in their children’s lives. And fathers today want to be involved not just as breadwinners, but also as caregivers who provide nurturing and responsive parenting.Father-friendly practices by health care professionalsA father and newborn. Fathers have reported that they feel neglected in obstetric and pediatric settings. ESB Studios/ShutterstockIn obstetrics and pediatrics settings, fathers participating in research have reported feeling neglected. They are often viewed as playing a secondary role to mothers. This may entail the father seeing himself as a “helper” of the mother instead of a “co-parent” alongside the mother.This neglect persists for several reasons. For instance, health care professionals may be unwilling or inadequately trained to work with fathers. Clinical services may not be sensitive to men’s parenting needs. Further, mothers might limit men from being engaged in prenatal and postnatal services.Yet, men have a vital role to play during infancy. To help address the above barriers, Michael Yogman and Craig Garfield, pediatric faculty at the Harvard Medical School and Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine respectively, recommended that health care professionals engage in father-friendly practices. These include acknowledging fathers’ presence at health care visits, welcoming fathers directly, educating fathers about parenting, and encouraging fathers to assume childcare roles early on.Innovative early parent education programs for fathersAlthough there aren’t many yet, innovative parent education programs targeting men during the perinatal period are emerging. One example is Dads Matter, a father-friendly home visitation program that may improve fathers’ engagement with their babies among socioeconomically disadvantaged families.Another emerging program is Baby Elmo. This is an interactive program that helps fathers understand their babies’ emotional needs to support positive father–child interactions. Baby Elmo is currently being tested for its effectiveness within low-income communities.Our research lab is implementing a father engagement program for low-income fathers, in collaboration with Healthy Start home visitation programs in Michigan.Yet another promising program is Supporting Father Involvement by Philip Cowan, emeritus professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. Supporting Father Involvement is a group-based relationship program that has been successful in promoting father involvement with young children.On the whole, these programs help ensure that American children – especially those at the highest risk of living apart from their fathers – grow up in households where their fathers or father figures are positively involved from the very beginning.Fathers play a key role in children’s lives, starting from the very beginning of life. Their involvement in pregnancy is just as important as the involvement of mothers. We celebrate mothers on Mother’s Day and offer multiple programs and resources for helping women navigate motherhood.We also celebrate our fathers on Father’s Day. However, we leave them with almost no resources for navigating the transition to fatherhood. This disparity in services is inevitably hurting not only fathers, but also their children. It’s time to change this narrative. Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 last_img read more

Government still blocking search for journalist Guy-André Kieffer 100 days after disappearance

first_imgNews RSF_en Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election Organisation Reports Reporters Without Borders today accused Ivorian officials of continuing to obstruct investigation of the disappearance and apparent kidnapping of French-Canadian journalist Guy-André Kieffer as the chief witness in the case claimed finance minister Paul-Antoine Bohoun Bouabré was involved. Reporters Without Borders today accused the Ivorian government of “still doing all it can to ensure the truth never emerges” about the April disappearance of French-Canadian journalist Guy-André Kieffer and said impunity remained the rule in Côte d’Ivoire. The promise to the journalist’s family that everyone involved in the case could be questioned had been broken and was “just a trick to appease international public opinion,” it said.Kieffer, 54, a French-Canadian freelance economics reporter based in Abidjan since early 2002 and writing for the Paris-based newsletter La Lettre du Continent and several Ivorian publications, was last seen in an Abidjan shopping-centre on 16 April – 100 days ago on July 25. Married with two children, he had worked for the French business daily La Tribune from 1984 until he came to Côte d’Ivoire.Despite the government’s obstruction, Ivorian and French investigators have made some progress. Michel Legré, brother-in-law of President Laurent Gbagbo’s wife Simone and the last person to see the journalist alive, implicated finance minister Paul-Antoine Bohoun Bouabré when he appeared recently before Judge Patrick Ramaël, the chief French investigator. He said the minister personally handed him an envelope containing one million CFA francs (1,500 euros) just a few hours after Kieffer disappeared.The judge has established that Legré, currently in jail in Abidjan in connection with the case, returned to the shopping centre hours after the disappearance and then went to the airport, where Kieffer’s car was found in the car-park three weeks later.Ramaël has complained to his Ivorian opposite number, Judge Koffi Kouadio, that the authorities have not allowed him to question two soldiers mentioned by Legré, on grounds that their superiors could not find them. Mrs Gbagbo’s security chief, Anselme Seka Yapo, and the president’s defence adviser, Bertin Gahié Kadet, have also refused to be questioned by Ramaël. The French judge has also examined Kieffer’s computer, which Legré handed over to the authorities, and found it had been switched on a few minutes after the journalist disappeared and that several files had been opened. His mobile phone messages had also been checked at the same time. This suggests he may have been kidnapped in connection with his work.Judge Ramaël plans to go to Côte d’Ivoire for a third time in early September and will shortly make a new formal request to the authorities for permission to take evidence in connection with the case.
