The wealth accumulation lessons of 2020

first_img Enter Your Email Address Or that it could wreak such havoc on our investments. Not surprisingly, with their investments in meltdown, a lot of worried retail investors sold up, unable to stomach what they were seeing.We didn’t expect these, eitherRumsfeld first served as Secretary of Defense under president Gerald Ford in the mid-1970s. He served again under George W. Bush from 2001 to 2006. So accept this volatility as a fact of life. Where you can, take steps to minimise its effects through diversification, and by choosing high-quality investments. And where you can, position yourself to profit from bargains.But there’s little point bewailing your losses, or being deterred from investing because of them. See all posts by Malcolm Wheatley Some have had to dip into savings in order to survive. And with Bank Rate being reduced to just 0.1%, the real inflation-adjusted return on most savings accounts is negative.True, people who have managed to stay in work may well have seen a rise in their disposable incomes through a lack of opportunities to spend during lockdown. But the value of their investments will almost certainly have fallen: back in March, you remember, the FTSE 100 sank to 4,994 – a shocking slide from the 7,500 or so it stood at during January and much of February.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…Unknown unknownsIn short, it’s been a year that has reminded me of the words of America’s former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Malcolm Wheatley | Saturday, 26th December, 2020 And fifth, quality matters. In every case, it’s been large, well-managed, defensively positioned businesses with decent balance sheets that have tended to suffer the least pain. Companies such as Unilever. Or GlaxoSmithKline. Or Diageo. Or AstraZeneca. And so on, and so on.This is what investing is likeBut the real lesson is this: wealth accumulation involves living with volatility and uncertainty. No matter how well you plan, or how sound your strategy. First, when such things happen, don’t panic. For ordinary investors, I believe that it’s often better to stay invested rather than selling up and trying to time the market. Think long term, not short term.Second, diversify. Across asset classes, geographies, and industries. Spread your risks; avoid ‘home country bias’. 2020 has been a year that has seen many people take a hit to their wealth. Image source: Getty Images So think for a moment about all things we know now, that we didn’t know back then – and that, what’s more, we also didn’t know that we didn’t know these things, or that they were possibilities that could blow our investment strategies off course. And I think that we can all safely say that we didn’t know that a global pandemic was on the cards for 2020, or quite how devastating and dangerous such a pandemic could be. Fourth, recognise that it’s no bad thing to at least hold some cash, or investments that you can quickly turn into cash. While these periods of turbulence are uncomfortable, they do throw up bargains. So be in a position to take advantage of those bargains. Brexit, for instance. Donald Trump and his trade wars. The Great Financial Crash of 2007–2008 – which promptly heralded the worst recession since the 1930s. The current Covid-19 pandemic. And of course, the current recession, which makes that earlier 2007–2008 recession look like a breeze.Mitigation strategiesWhat are the lessons to come from this? I can think of several.

Many of you, if you are investing today, would probably have been investing back then, albeit perhaps on a slightly smaller scale. Third, relying on cash to generate an income is a mug’s game – something that was last probably viable as a strategy during Rumsfeld’s second term in office. Ever since, interest rates have generally moved in only one direction: downwards. For serious wealth accumulation, the markets are just about the only game in town.

Italy prop Cherif Traoré: “I want to be one of the best front-rows in Europe”

first_img From the off: Cherif Traore will make his first Test start for Italy against France (Getty Images) This article originally appeared in the February 2021 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Both of Traoré’s brothers played football for Parma, Mohamed Lamine in the first team and Abdoulaye in the youths. His own sporting journey also started out with calcio, but as a “really nasty defender”, the yellow and red cards began to mount up and his dad suggested he switch horses.Viadana, in so many senses, was the making of him. He speaks warmly of the influence of Franco Bernini, the former Italy age-grade coach who oversaw Viadana’s first and so far only league title before focusing his efforts on the youth section where Traoré was making his way.“He really stuck his neck out on me and backed me. He said I would become the first black prop to play for Italy and I have. He is so happy for me. Any time I’m in Parma, I go and see him and it’s like looking at the sun: he’s so happy for me. He was so good at setting me an example of how to be, on and off the park, and it’s those same ideas that I still have in my head to guide me now.“I’d come home from school and the club minibus would be waiting there to take me to training. I’d quickly get some food down me and head to see Franco in the gym. He’d stick me on the running machine and keep turning up the speed. If I ever stopped, even for just a second, he’d be shouting at me! He saw that I had potential and he wanted to make sure I didn’t waste it.”There is a certain irony in Traoré now being an established figure with Benetton. The Treviso outfit and Viadana were huge rivals in the days when a young Traoré was a fixture on the terraces of the Stadio Luigi Zaffanella for first-team games. There wasn’t much love lost in any direction.“I was Viadana’s number one fan. It always seemed to be Viadana-Benetton in the Super Ten final and Benetton always won! I hated them! Now that I’m playing for them, I realise it’s not good to hate teams, because you never know what’s going to happen in the future.”Stop sign: Cherif Traore on defensive duty against Ireland in the 2019 Six Nations (Getty Images)Traoré played at No 8, in the centres and once on the wing before settling in the front row when he reached U18 level. At 5ft 11in and just over 18st, he is far from the biggest prop, but boasts the throwback gift of being able to play on both sides.While the likes of Giosuè Zilocchi, Simone Ferrari and especially Danilo Fischetti all impressed in the autumn, it is Traoré who will start at loosehead in the opening game of the 2021 Six Nations against France.“It’s difficult to cover both sides of the scrum, so hopefully it can be an advantage for me. I’m officially a loosehead but I also like playing on the other side. If one of my team-mates is in trouble or injured, I can move there. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do – be able to support others.“At loosehead, it’s fundamental to work hand in hand with the hooker. You must learn how to use your arm, and always keep your back and hips low. That can help the hooker, and your tighthead, make the scrum go forward. At tighthead, you’re working on your own. You need to get really low and put pressure with your neck on the opposing prop.“There are lots of good Italian props at the moment, in the national team and both franchises. I’ll do everything to show my worth. I need my determination to be as big as my dreams, and the Six Nations is one of my biggest ones.“Singing the anthem, especially in the Olimpico in Rome, is something that gives me a super charge to go out and fight for my country. It’s not often I cry, but that’s one of the few things that makes me want to do it. I just love pulling on that blue shirt, for my family, my friends and the whole country.“We all know and understand Franco’s objectives and what he likes: players who are super fit, who want to stand up and fight to win games. These are things I expect from myself, and have done since I was a young kid starting out.”Religion underpins Traoré’s approach to life. His family are all practising Muslims, and he has recently found a new prayer companion in Monty Ioane, his Benetton and Italy team-mate.“I know many people in Italy who have converted from Christianity to Islam. Italy is a very Catholic country but there are mosques in a lot of places now. I always thought of myself as the only Muslim on the team, but now I have Monty too. We often go to the mosque together, and when we are away with the team we go to each other’s rooms to pray.”Cherif Traoré knows what he wants – and he also knows what’s important.center_img The Benetton front-rower, who can pack down on both sides of the scrum, talks to Mark Palmer about what inspires him Italy prop Cherif Traoré: “I want to be one of the best front-rows in Europe”Cherif Traoré has some very clear objectives. “I want to be a reference point in the teams I play for,” explains the 26-year-old Benetton and Italy prop, now recovered from the facial injury that kept him out of the Autumn Nations Cup.“My goal is to become one of the best front-rows not just in this country but in Europe. I don’t say this out of egotism – it has always been my aim.”Sidiki Conde had big plans too. Like Traoré, his family had moved to Italy from Guinea when he was a child, in search of a better life. Like Traoré, he had found fun, friends and purpose at Viadana rugby club, where he was a rising star of the U14s.The two families were close. Sidiki would mine Traoré for information on the game. The bigger lad was already part of the FIR academy near Pisa, and Sidiki had every intention of following in his footsteps.“His dream was to become a professional player,” says Traoré. “He was always asking me for advice and tips. He was my little friend and I loved spending time in his company.”Green giant: Cherif Traoré in Pro14 action for Benetton (Inpho)One night in May 2013, everything changed. Sidiki was round at the Traoré family home in Boretto, a village half an hour’s drive north-east of Parma. The 13-year-old would often come over to battle Mohamed Lamine and Abdoulaye, Traoré’s brothers, on the PlayStation. That night Sidiki seemed out of sorts and while waiting for his turn, suddenly announced he was heading home.“He went down the stairs, opened the front door and went out,” begins Traoré, with evident emotion in his voice. “He collapsed in front of our building. There’s a bar there where lots of people from the village go. The owner came and rang our doorbell, my brother came down the stairs, took the kid in his arms and put some covers on him.“He was shouting at him to stay with us, giving him little slaps on the face to keep him going while the ambulance arrived. My brother remembers him smiling at him, but he passed away in his arms.”Sidiki had been treated for breathing difficulties, and there was a thought that his sudden collapse may have been due to a pulmonary embolism. Whatever the explanation, his death provoked shock, not least in the local African community of which the Traoré clan is a central plank.“He had a very close bond with my family, he was pretty much part of it. He was always at our house, basically a brother to us. Me, my brothers and sister, my mum and dad, we all loved him. I just couldn’t believe it could happen; that a great, young guy could be taken away from us like that.“I was at the academy when it happened and when I got a train back the next morning, my brothers were all over the place. It was such a terrible thing.”Every year an U14 tournament is held in Sidiki’s honour in Viadana, and Traoré is always there to hand out the medals and remember his friend. He now lives in Treviso, where he’s been part of the Benetton set-up since 2015, but Boretto remains his bolthole.In pre-Covid times, he would be back there every weekend, meeting his childhood friends to talk rugby, surfing and hip hop. Traoré is proud of his Guinean roots but this is home, and has been since he arrived as a French-speaking seven-year-old with next to no knowledge of the country, the culture or the language.“My father was already here in Europe and because he missed his wife and children so much, he decided to move us all over. I didn’t understand anything about Italy to begin with, but I soon made some great schoolfriends who really helped me.“They invited me to their houses, which was a great way to get to know people and how things work. I’ve never had any real difficulties – I’ve got great friends. We cook and go surfing together.”Maxime Mbandà, another black Italy international, was the victim of racist abuse from a fellow driver on the roads of Milan in 2019, but Traoré says he’s “never” had any issues in a country where even internal animosity between regions is never far from the surface.“I’m quite a laid-back person and fortunately I’ve never had these kinds of problems. Maybe behind my back people call me names, but nobody has ever said something like that to my face. Maybe people are scared by my size!”last_img read more

James Haskell confirms retirement after adventure that allowed him to laugh every single day

first_imgTuesday May 7, 2019 James Haskell confirms retirement after adventure that allowed him to laugh every single day England and Northampton Saints flanker James Haskell has today announced that he will be retiring from professional rugby at the end of the season. The 34-year-old has struggled with recurring ankle and toe problems that have restricted his appearances this season. ADVERTISEMENTA statement was released today, announcing the retirement and he also shared this thoughts and feelings in a lengthy instagram post.“I have loved every minute of my career in rugby and feel very privileged to have played with and against some exceptional players,” said Haskell.“There are so many people to thank, but in particular I would like to express my appreciation for all the coaches, trainers and physios who I have worked with throughout my career – from Maidenhead minis all the way up to England and the British & Irish Lions, I owe them all a huge debt of gratitude.“I also want to thank all my team mates over the years for putting up with me and giving me an adventure that allowed me to laugh every single day.WATCH: Friday Funnies: James Haskell and Owen Farrell Best Mates Compilation “My thanks go out to the supporters here at Northampton Saints too who have welcomed me with open arms; I wish I’d been able to offer more on the field this season. This next chapter was supposed to go a very different way, however that is the nature of professional sport. I’ve never spent so much time injured in my entire career, but I’m doing everything I can to help the squad here until my contract ends.“Retiring is obviously a really difficult decision for me to make; professional rugby has been the centre of my life for such a long time now and while it’s weird to imagine living without it, I look to the future with huge excitement.“I look back at my career and have been very lucky to have done most things there are to do in rugby. Sadly, I will never know what it’s like to win a World Cup or represent the Barbarians.ADVERTISEMENT“Finally, I would not have achieved what I have in this sport without the continued support of my amazing wife, my family, and my friends. To them all, I am incredibly grateful.”Haskell made the short move across from Coventry to join Saints in 2018 after a stellar career at Wasps.ADVERTISEMENTHe made over 200 appearances in a 12-year career at Northampton’s Premiership rivals, splitting two spells at the club with stints across the globe at Stade Français, Ricoh Black Rams, and the Highlanders – playing on almost every stage world rugby has to offer.Haskell also excelled at international level for over a decade, earning 77 caps for England, appearing at two Rugby World Cups to date and winning three Six Nations titles, including a Grand Slam in 2016 – the same year he was named ‘Man of the Series’ in the Red Rose’s whitewash of the Wallabies in Australia.The flanker was then called up to the 2017 British & Irish Lions squad that toured New Zealand – playing against a Hurricanes side that was then led by Saints’ director of rugby Chris Boyd.WATCH: James Haskell reveals full truth behind ‘drunken’ analysis clip England head coach Eddie Jones paid tribute to his career.“When I look back at my time coaching James, it will always bring a smile to my face,” he said. “It was a privilege to coach him, but also great fun. He’s what I’d describe as a ‘glue’ player – someone who always tries to bring a squad together.“His tour to Australia in 2016 sticks in my mind. He was absolutely outstanding on that tour, amazingly physical, uncompromising and just totally dominant.“Despite injuries preventing him from achieving his goals this season, he should be remembered for a great career and as someone who never gave less than 100 per cent for club and country.“Not only a superb player, but also one of the game’s great characters; rugby will be poorer without the ‘old fella’.Watch Haskell’s huge hit on David Pocock in the aforementioned tour of Australia: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Giodani, Miran KambičAt almost seven hundred meters above sea level, the building is set into the space in a way to use the natural resources in biggest extent possible, and is therefore most respectful to natural environment. The plot is extremely long and narrow, very steep too, the slope spans eleven meters altitude. It is a specific building design, where the terrain does not conform to the house, but the house conforms to the existing slope. This way, the building is embedded in the ground in the longitudinal direction by cantilevers. For preserving the old (chestnut and oak) trees, the house is based on the pilots. Save this picture!Courtesy of Peter Giodani, Miran KambičThe feeling of lightness is emphasized by light steel construction with large panoramic glazing of the south façade, allowing unlimited expansion of space from inside to the spacious environment. In contrary to the southern part, the northern is leaning towards the ground, while the upper level is public, designed as access to the building. This way the house has a dual, hybrid design, not only in cross-section, but also in plan. On the south side it is totally glazed, open to the nature, on the north side closed and built. Room layout by floors is different from the usual: living area in the top floor, where the view is continuously oriented outwards as in an impressive belvedere, the lower part houses the more intimate sleeping quarters. The house is distinguished by a careful placement of the building in the space and its subtle integration into natural and rural environment.Project gallerySee allShow lessKenneth Frampton wins Lifetime Achievement Award at Lisbon TriennaleArchitecture NewsThe Morpholio Project Launches Trace 2.0Architecture News Share Year:  Photographs:  Courtesy of Peter Giodani, Miran Kambič Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projectslast_img read more

The exam, which is organised twice a year, was postponed multiple times in 2020 due to the COVID19 pandemic, and with BCI claiming that it was not feasible to organise the same through the online mode. However, as the exam finally took place, law graduates appearing for it reported complete disregard for the COVID19 guidelines at the examination centres. In order to secure the safety of those appearing, the Delhi High Court on On January 06 had directed the BCI to issue Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for conducting the exams through the physical model. In pursuance of that order, BCI issued the SOP on January 20, just four days before the exam, incorporating the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Human Resource Development for conducting exams. The SOP prescribed for temperature checks, displaying proper symbols at appropriate places to maintain social distancing, and ensuring that there’s no crowding at entry and exit gates. Additionally, the exam centres were directed to collect COVID declarations of applicants before allowing entrance into the premises, identify applicants showing symptoms of fever or cough and either make them sit in a separate room or deny permission to take the exam. The actual situation at the examination centres was of complete disregard for these guidelines and Standard Operating Procedures. At Rani Public School, Burari – an examination centre for candidates appearing in Delhi – there was massive crowding at entry gates, no provision for temperature checks, and utter neglect towards ensuring social distancing. ‘Students were asked to sit behind each other, no desks were left vacant’, said one of the candidates who was taking this exam for the first time, ‘there were no symbols to guide social distancing, and nobody was regulating crowding’, he reiterated. Instead of abiding by the ‘six-feet’ distance rule, extra chairs were put to create an additional row for accommodating more students in the same classroom. ‘We were cramped up in a small classroom, they added more rows instead of creating space for distancing’, said a law graduate from Delhi. At examination centres in Ghevra (Lavi Public School) and Burari (Rani Public School), candidates also reported invigilators without facemasks and absence of any form of screening for COVID symptoms. “Our invigilator didn’t wear her mask, people who were coming for giving instructions also had their masks resting on their chins”, said a candidate who appeared at the Ghevra centre. Candidates appearing at the Burari centre also complained about lack of vigilance of students who were taking off their masks, along with the common complaint of maskless invigilators. The COVID declaration forms of the candidates were collected after the completion of the exam instead of doing it at the time of allowing entry into the premises, as stipulated in the rules. This allowed candidates who finished their exam early to leave the premises without submitting the self-declaration form.  The disregard for COVID guidelines did impact the candidates who came to appear for the exam. While the degree of fear varied among candidates, some of them were visibility distressed about the appalling conditions at the exam centres: “I have no choice but to sit for the exam, the least they (BCI) could do was to ensure our safety… If I catch COVID tomorrow, it will entirely be their fault”, said a candidate who travelled all the way from Dehradun to Delhi to take this exam. Candidates also complained about of lack of hygiene at examination centres, with unclean toilets and dust-covered desks. They believed that the organisers conceived this exam as a “formality”, and took the safety of the candidates appearing for the physical exam for granted. Some of the candidates also expressed “hopelessness” in BCI’s capacity and intent in holding an exam which is ideally supposed to be a gatekeeper to legal practice in India: “Honestly, I knew that they (BCI) will not do anything, I had no hope of them organising this properly’, said a candidate who works as a legal researcher with a Supreme Court judge. “I just came to take this exam as I had no other choice, I knew they (BCI) will not organise it properly.” Maskless invigilators, complete disregard for social distancing, and no COVID screening: the way Bar Council of India organised the All India Bar Exam through physical mode in the middle of a pandemic raises serious concerns regarding its capacity and intent to implement its own guidelines. It also reflects a lack of commitment towards the assurances given before the court in petitions challenging the lackadaisical approach towards undertaking such a nationwide practice. When the consequences of this version of the AIBE will begin to surface, the body organising the exam will definitely have a lot to answer.Views are personal.Next Storylast_img read more
