Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img It’s fair to say that Q1 2020 was terrible for the FTSE 100. Rocked by the economic uncertainty associated with the coronavirus, the blue-chip index fell from 7,540 points to 5,670 points over the opening three months, which represents a fall of around 25%. That’s the worst quarterly performance since 1987, when the index crashed spectacularly on ‘Black Monday’.There’s no doubt this shocking performance from the FTSE 100 will have hit many investor portfolios hard. With stock market volatility spiking to Global Financial Crisis (GFC) levels recently, there’s been nowhere to hide. Worryingly, there could be further market falls to come. This all begs the question – what should investors do now?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…What should investors do now?If you’ve checked your investments recently, the chances are you were shocked at the drop in portfolio value. While the FTSE 100 slumped by a quarter, many individual stocks fared far worse.Royal Dutch Shell shares, for example, plummeted 39% over the three-month period. Lloyds Bank shares crashed 49%. Meanwhile, easyJet shares tanked 60%. My own investment portfolio – which includes a mix of FTSE 100 dividend stocks, small-cap growth stocks, and international stocks – has been decimated. In this kind of situation, the most important thing to do is to stay calm (you can find some great tips on how to stay calm during stock market turbulence here) and stick to your long-term investment strategy. You shouldn’t let emotions, such as fear, drive your investment decisions, as this can lead to irrational financial moves.Paper lossesIt’s worth remembering any losses that’ve come about as a result of the recent stock market crash are just paper losses. You haven’t actually lost any money until you sell your shares. It’s also worth remembering the stock market has crashed many times before and always bounced back. During the GFC in 2008/2009, the FTSE 100 slumped from 6,500 points to just 3,500 points. Yet within the space of a few years, the index was back at the 6,500 points level.Given that stocks have always recovered from crashes in the past, it makes sense to think long term and hold on to your investments during this uncertain period, as they’re likely to eventually recover.Huge opportunitiesFinally, if you have cash on the sidelines, you may want to consider taking advantage of the recent stock market weakness and buy stocks while share prices are lower. This could boost your portfolio significantly when stocks begin rising again.Recently, plenty of high-quality stocks have been trading at levels not seen for years. Take alcoholic beverages champion Diageo, which looks set to enjoy long-term growth as wealth rises in the emerging markets. A few weeks back, it was trading at around 2,050p – a level not seen since 2016. Similarly, shares in Smith & Nephew – a healthcare company poised to benefit from the world’s ageing population – have also recently dropped to 2016 levels.If you’re a long-term investor, as I am, these kinds of share-price falls could be a real opportunity.

Photo: St. Mark’sThe diocese had no information that any other churches were targeted or that the attacks were connected, Josh Hornbeck, the diocese’s communications director, told ENS.Hate-filled graffiti that singled out the LGBTQ community and Muslims was found on a door at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Seattle, Washington, over the holiday weekend, according to the diocese, which didn’t give an exact date. The Rev. Britt Olson, vicar at St. Luke’s, said in a statement released by the diocese that the graffiti was discovered quickly, before most arriving worshippers could notice it.The church also has received threatening letters, emails and phone calls, “for its mission of caring for those on the margins,” Olson said. The attacks have been “deeply disturbing” and “it is infinitely worse to know that this hatred is the daily experience for many in our community.”At St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle, black paint was sprayed on a white wall forming a message in bold letters that included the phrases “Marxist Idiots” and “Wake Up!” The Very Rev. Steven Thomason, dean of the cathedral, wrote that he assumed the message was intended to provoke anger, but he felt a greater sadness upon first seeing it.“I find myself prayerful – for those whose lives are filled with such hatred that they can justify desecrating a church, for this community that we might bring the fullness of our hearts and souls into this call to be the Body of Christ … and for this nation whose political discourse seems to condone acts such as this vandalism as justifiable in the course of partisan disagreements,” Thomason said in a written statement.In Everett, north of Seattle, vandals spray-painted inverted crosses on the main doors at Trinity Episcopal Church on the evening of the King holiday, Jan. 20. To remove the graffiti, the doors must be sanded and re-stained, the Rev. Rachel Taber-Hamilton said. She noted that King preached “that love on the level of society looks like justice.”Thomason, in his statement, quoted King’s reassurance that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle, Washington, put a large banner across its wall until the recent graffiti could be painted over. Photo: St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral“We have work to do my friends, in the cause of justice,” Thomason said. “Let us do so in God’s name, with courage and faithfulness.”The cathedral’s plan to immediately paint over the graffiti has been delayed by cool, damp weather in the region, cathedral communications director Gregory Block told ENS by email. “Our solution was to conceal the message by re-purposing a banner that was last used in 2014 for a visit by author Karen Armstrong,” he said.The giant banner contains just two words: “Love Wins.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

New York’s police commissioner apologizes for the 1969 Stonewall raid

first_imgJoel Carillet/iStock(NEW YORK) — The New York City police department has apologized for the 1969 raid on the Stonewall Inn — an incident that helped kick off the LGBT rights movement.“The actions taken by the NYPD were wrong, plain and simple,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill said on Thursday during a safety briefing, as Pride Month kicks off in New York and in cities across the country. “The actions and the laws were discriminatory and oppressive and for that I apologize.”The raid at the Stonewall, a gay bar in the West Village, sparked protests that helped launch a civil rights movement.

George Floyd case: Four police officers indicted on federal civil rights charges

first_imgCopyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. Kuzma/iStock(MINNEAPOLIS) — Derek Chauvin and three other former Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s death were indicted Friday on federal civil rights charges.The three-count indictment alleges Chauvin, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane deprived Floyd’s rights when they saw him lying on the ground “in clear need” of medical care, but “willfully failed to aid Floyd, thereby acting with deliberate indifference to a substantial risk of harm.”Count one accuses Chauvin of deprivation of rights under color of law for his direct role in 46-year-old Floyd’s May 25, 2020, death.“Chauvin held his left knee across George Floyd’s neck, and his right knee on Floyd’s back and arm, as George Floyd lay on the ground, handcuffed and unresisting, and kept his knees on Floyd’s neck and body even after Floyd became unresponsive,” the indictment said. “This offense resulted in bodily injury to, and the death of George Floyd.”In count two, the grand jury accused Thao and Kueng of being “aware that [Chauvin] was holding his knee across George Floyd’s neck as Floyd lay handcuffed and unresisting, and that Defendant Chauvin continued to hold Floyd to the ground even after Floyd became unresponsive, and the defendants willfully failed to intervene to stop Defendant Chauvin’s use of unreasonable force.”Count three is against all four former officers, and claims that by not giving Floyd medical care and aid, they “willfully deprived Mr. Floyd of his constitutional right not to be deprived of liberty without due process of law, which includes an arrestee’s right to be free from a police officer’s deliberate indifference to his serious medical needs.”The Justice Department said Friday’s indictment is separate from its recently announced and still ongoing civil “pattern or practice” investigation looking into the policing practices of the entire Minneapolis Police Department.Civil rights attorneys in the Floyd case Ben Crump, Antonio Romanucci and L. Chris Stewart said in a statement they are “encouraged by these charges.”“The Constitution claims to be committed to life, liberty, and justice, and we are seeing this realized in the justice George Floyd continues to receive,” they said. “This comes after hundreds of years of American history in which Black Americans unfortunately did not receive equal justice.”The attorneys said they’re “eager to see continued justice in this historic case that will impact Black citizens and all Americans for generations to come.”Derrick Johnson, the NAACP national president, in a statement called the charges “a step in the right direction.”“No police officer is above the law, nor should they ever be shielded from accountability. We need urgent reforms now,” Johnson said.Attorneys for Thao and Kueng declined to comment.In addition to allegedly violating Floyd’s rights, Chauvin is named a second, separate indictment filed on Thursday for deprivation of rights under color of law for allegedly violating the civil rights of a 14-year-old in 2017. The indictment said “Chauvin, without legal justification, held” the teen “by the throat and struck Juvenile 1 multiple times in the head with a flashlight.” Chauvin is also accused of holding “his knee on the neck and the upper back of Juvenile 1 even after Juvenile 1 was lying prone, handcuffed, and unresisting.”Chauvin was convicted last month on all state charges against him in Floyd’s death: second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.The three other officers involved in Floyd’s death are awaiting trial. After appearing in court Friday morning over the new federal charges against them, all three were released on $25,000 bond.last_img read more
