Over the past seven decades, Buffett has bought stocks when they’re cheap. He’s stayed away when he thinks the market looks expensive.Now could be the right time for investors to replicate his strategy.Realistically, stock prices could move lower in the short run. The coronavirus crisis has hammered the economy and investor sentiment.The spread of coronavirus may likely dictate that further restrictions on movement and travel are necessary. It could be some time before airlines are back at full capacity.The same can be said for restaurants, bars and clubs. Even if the situation improves, it could be months before the government allows large public gatherings again.Taking the first stepThis suggests that buying stocks right now could a problematic step for any investor to take. Indeed, investors could see paper losses pile up in the near term.Nevertheless, trying to time the market is something Warren Buffett has always discouraged. He believes it’s impossible to try and pick the bottom of the market as we don’t know when investor sentiment will change.Instead, he thinks that by focusing on the market’s highest-quality businesses, investors will do well over the long run.He has always focused on high-quality companies. Buying these businesses when they trade at significant discounts to their intrinsic values has helped maximise his long-term rewards. This is one of the main reasons why he’s earned the title of one of the most successful investors of all time.Following BuffettSo all in all, following Warren Buffett could help you get rich in this stock market crash. Buying high-quality businesses when they’re trading at a discount to their intrinsic value is always a sound strategy. It makes even more sense in periods of uncertainty.However, despite the opportunities on offer right now, investors should be prepared to encounter further volatility in the near term. That may mean that if you’re not prepared to deal with this uncertainty, it might be better to sit on the sidelines for the time being.But if you want to follow Warren Buffett and get rich, now could be the time to start snapping up some high-quality blue-chip stocks at bargain valuations.

Follow the break for drawings and photographs of this project. Save this picture!Courtesy of karan heiratiThe site of the project is a garden of 4,000 sqm area and is surrounded by neighborhood gardens. The total area of the building is around 500 sqm of which 150 sqm has been allocated to exterior voids and semi-covered spaces. Save this picture!Courtesy of karan heiratiIn this project the open exterior spaces are as significant as the interiors. The architects accomplished this by eliminating any suggestive distance between outside and inside. The result became a series of voids and volumetric projects that capture and define the landscape. Continuous views towards the X, Y and Z axis’s were created and the main spaces are organized between transparent layers extended by voids or semi-covered balconies.Save this picture!Courtesy of karan heiratiProject gallerySee allShow lessTowards Zero Energy ArchitectureArticlesTower of Droplets: Taiwan Conceptual Tower Competition Entry / CRAB StudioArticles Share Year:  Villa Kiani / Makan Rahmanian and Kamran Heirati CopyAbout this officeMakan Rahmanian and Kamran HeiratiOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasTehranHouses3D ModelingIranPublished on December 12, 2010Cite: “Villa Kiani / Makan Rahmanian and Kamran Heirati” 12 Dec 2010.

The suburb of Clifton on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard has a high rate of foot traffic due to it’s scenic beauty, with residents and tourists being keen joggers and walkers. It was a deliberate design intention to take this fact into consideration – in a neighborhood characterized by high blank boundary walls and overpowering building mass.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe house is visually accessible from the street, rather than hiding behind perimeter walls and gates – and it aims to contribute to the streetscape (specific attention has been paid to landscaping design at sidewalk level), in relation to the sidewalks and to the height of existing adjacent houses. It occupies a position on the hill side between lower lying houses to the left or north, and higher situated properties to the right or south of it.Save this picture!© Adam LetchGabion walls are used to elevate the living spaces, de-emphasize a large garage and screen utilities. Elevation above road level is essential to maximize view potential, but can lead to overpowering building mass. The design therefor aims to erode the building mass by means of smaller volumes and expressing thinner structural elements such as floor slabs, thereby creating an organic stacking of building components. The garage’s gabion walls have been planted to become overgrown with time, and as such soften the streetscape for passers-by. The guest flat on first floor has full views over the road, to the sea beyond, and is given privacy by means of a cedar wood shuttered wall.Save this picture!SectionThe lower two levels (garage and guest apartment) of the home engage more with the hillside, whereas the top two levels, housing the main residence, become boulder-like objects perched on the hillside. The main residence is broken into three off-shutter concrete building blocks (the ‘boulders’), connected by means of a free-flowing double volume atrium space, also containing vertical circulation (staircase and lift). Two ‘bookends’ of the residence is expressed as glazed and cedar shuttered boxes, housing bathrooms that become lit-from-within lanterns at night. These elements are further celebrated by being cantilevered over negative space below.Save this picture!© Adam LetchSeamless indoor-outdoor living spaces spill out onto a comfortable protected and landscaped courtyard, that allows maximum north exposure, rather than responding to sea views only. Similarly the kitchen has a direct connection to the vegetable and herb garden by means of stepping-stones over a pond with a wet wall water feature. The atrium opens up to the pond by means of a story-high mechanical sash window, greatly adding to natural cooling in the summer.Save this picture!Level 2 PlanRoof over-hangs and glazing specifications were carefully considered in order to minimize unwanted solar heat gain. Western exposure is regulated with external, automated drop-down screens over glazed façades, whilst energy consumption is minimized by means of Photovoltaic and Solar panels both linked to a centralized system for domestic water heating, waterborne under-floor and pool heating.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe selection of materials; board-marked concrete, local stone, untreated cedar wood, rough-sawn oak floor planks, terrazzo floors and Corten steel will express the passing of time, with the gradual changing of each material’s natural colour and texture.Save this picture!© Adam LetchProject gallerySee allShow lessBarnham Road / MOCT StudioSelected ProjectsHourglass / studioLOOPSelected Projects Share Area:  789 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeMalan Vorster Architecture Interior DesignOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCape TownSouth AfricaPublished on June 18, 2017Cite: “Clifton House / Malan Vorster Architecture Interior Design” 18 Jun 2017.

EU countries urged to repeal blasphemy laws

One of the most prominent bishops in the Lutheran Church (to nearly 80 percent of the population is affiliated) said: “Any legislation restricting freedom of expression (…) is out of step with modern human rights concepts.”Reporters Without Borders hails Iceland’s decision to modernize its legislation. “Under no circumstances should the accusation of blasphemy be used to restrict free speech or media freedom, which is enshrined in Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” Reporters Without Borders editor in chief Virginie Dangles said. “It is vital that European Union countries eliminate this offence from their national legislation.”Nine EU countries still have blasphemy on their statute books. They are Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands and Poland, where artists and performers are often convicted of blasphemy.For the most part, these laws are rarely applied. In Ireland, where blasphemy was extended to all religions in 2009, it has never been used and its repeal has been under discussion ever since the Charlie Hebdo tragedy.Blasphemy had not been a crime in France since the 1789 revolution, but Alsace-Moselle has had religious legislation since the period when it was under German control (1871-1918). It has never been used since 1918 and Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Muslim religious leaders in Alsace-Moselle had proposed to the Observatory on Secularism that it should be repealed shortly before the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Reporters Without Borders urges them to press ahead with this initiative.The accusation of blasphemy can me dangerous when used to restrict freedom of expression, as Reporters Without Borders emphasizes in its 2013 report entitled “Blasphemy: Information sacrificed on altar of religion”. The report also looks at political use of the charge of “offence against religion” – an offence that is punished harshly in many parts of the world.Saudi Arabia (164th in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index) and Iran (173rd) were among the countries that penalized blasphemy most severely in 2014, imposing harsh punishments on journalists and bloggers.Raif Badawi, a Saudi blogger and co-founder of a discussion website called the Saudi Liberal Network, was sentenced in May 2014 to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for creating and running a website that “disseminated comments insulting religious figures.” Help by sharing this information Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Receive email alertslast_img read more

Shantanagoudar and Vineet Saran said in a judgment delivered on Monday. The bench also observed that if the Court deliberately does not decide the bail application but adjourns the case by granting time to the prosecution, it would be in violation of the legislative mandate.The court said that provision of ‘default bail’ is for ensuring a fair trial, expeditious investigation and trial, and setting down a rationalized procedure that protects the interests of indigent sections of society. Referring to the decision in Rakesh Kumar Paul v. State of Assam, (2017) 15 SCC 67, the court observed:”As a cautionary measure, the counsel for the accused as well as the magistrate ought to inform the accused of the availability of the indefeasible right under Section 167(2) once it accrues to him, without any delay. This is especially where the accused is from an underprivileged section of society and is unlikely to have access to information about his legal rights. Such knowledge­s-haring by magistrates will thwart any dilatory tactics by the prosecution and also ensure that the obligations spelled out under Article 21 of the Constitution and the Statement of Objects and Reasons of the CrPC are upheld.”The court also reiterated that the issuance of notice to the State on the application for default bail filed is only so that the Public Prosecutor can satisfy the Court that the prosecution has already obtained an order of extension of time from the Court; or that the challan has been filed in the designated Court before the expiry of the prescribed period; or that the prescribed period has actually not expired. The prosecution can accordingly urge the Court to refuse granting bail on the alleged ground of default. The court said:”Such issuance of notice would avoid the possibility of the accused obtaining default bail by deliberate or inadvertent suppression of certain facts and also guard against multiplicity of proceedings. However, Public Prosecutors cannot be permitted to misuse the limited notice issued to them by the Court on bail applications filed under Section 167(2) by dragging on proceedings and filing subsequent applications/reports for the purpose of ‘buying extra time’ and facilitating filling up of lacunae in the investigation by the investigating agency.”The court also deprecated the practice of prosecutors filing additional complaint before the concerned court o defeat the indefeasible right of the accused to be released on bail.”If such a practice is allowed, the right under Section 167(2) would be rendered nugatory as the investigating officers could drag their heels till the time the accused exercises his right and conveniently files an additional complaint including the name of the accused as soon as the application for bail is taken up for disposal. Such complaint may be on flimsy grounds or motivated merely to keep the accused detained in custody….Irrespective of the seriousness of the offence and the reliability of the evidence available, filing additional complaints merely to circumvent the application for default bail is, in our view, an improper strategy.”Case: M.

Community mourns loss of Troy professor

first_img Print Article Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Skip Dr. Milton McPherson slipped quietly away from Troy about a couple of years ago and went back to, as he would say, his stomping grounds down around Monroeville.His death on Monday brought back many memories to those who knew and appreciated him as a teacher, patriot, historian, raconteur and an all around “character.”McPherson came to Troy State University in 1968 to teach American history and almost immediately was a professor of choice for the students. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Margaret Stewart knew McPherson best through the Civil War Forum of which they were members.“Milton was knowledgeable about all history and I would say he was an authority on Civil War history,” she said. “He would always inquire about the Forum’s next guest speaker so he could prepare for the meeting. He always had something to contribute to the discussion and it was always of interest. If the speaker brought up something that Milton questioned, he would go home and research it. He loved history and he enjoyed learning. But there was not a lot left for him to learn.”Art McKnatt said he was privileged to have McPherson for a history class.“I have so much respect for Dr. McPherson as a teacher, as a historian and as delightful man,” he said. “His class was a lot like the Civil War Forums I attended with him. It was casual and lighthearted and very enjoyable. I was always impressed with his knowledge. His class was open to discussion and he was interested in hearing from the students, if we had questions or comments, he welcomed both.”McKnatt visited McPherson in Monroeville several months ago.“At the forum one night we were talking about him and I decided to go find him,” McKnatt said. “He had just moved into an apartment for the elderly. He said where he had been previously he had often dined with Harper Lee. What I would give to have heard the conversations between those two.”Funeral services for McPherson were held in Monroeville on Thursday. Email the author By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “This might sound cliché, but Milton was a very gregarious and likeable person,” Post said. “You could call him a raconteur because he could keep you entertained. He was a very social sort of person, and people liked him.”Post said McPherson was innovative in his teachings, and he could hold the students’ interest with his stories.“He was an outstanding professor of history,” Post said “He was a historian. He took history seriously.”And, McPherson took pride in the role he played in history. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War with the 45th Division in Louisiana and in Japan. When he returned to the states, he attended OCS infantry training at Fort Benning, Georgia and was commission a 2nd Lieutenant. His first tour of duty as an officer was with the 61st Infantry Company in Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

Watch Before It’s… “Dr. McPherson was a true Southern gentleman/professor and the students loved him,” said Sandra Pugh Caldwell, who was McPherson’s student office worker for four years. “There was nothing about American history that Dr. McPherson didn’t know. He was very interesting, and all of the students wanted to take his classes. He had a great sense of humor, and he used his humor in class. He was a funny man and extremely knowledgeable. He brought history to life by telling tidbits of information that you wouldn’t find in textbooks.”Caldwell said McPherson used slides from real photographs in his class presentations, but the vivid pictures he painted with words were what most students remembered and appreciated.Grady Post taught with McPherson at Troy State University and also described him as a “colorful character” and an innovative teacher.

Letters

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. This week’s lettersMBAs lay down level of abilities I thought the MBA article was rotten. While it is important to stimulatedebate about the value of MBAs, its argument was based on a false premise. It assumed that MBA graduates are sought after because they provideorganisations with competitive advantage. In fact, the MBA is – like mostqualifications – more a marker of general competence and ability, than ademonstration of expertise in a particular field. There is a good argument that MBA studies should include HR, but I expectthat other professions, such as law and accountancy, could make equally strongclaims for their fields. I’d be surprised if firms employ MBA graduates, orsponsor their training, simply because they expect to make additional profitfrom their investment. Imagine the management team of the firm you work for has the choice betweenan MBA graduate whose studies focused heavily on accountancy, or one thatoverloaded on HR. Which one will provide greater competitive advantage? I woulddefy anyone to provide a definitive answer. However, if you asked people on theshopfloor, they would probably say that managers need is to understand thebusiness better. Incidentally, I work in the not-for-profit sector, paid for my own MBA andlanded a great job when I graduated. Martin Hone Director of resources, Broxbourne Borough Council Stress control starts at the top The survey on stress management by the Industrial Society Learning andDevelopment Council (News, 25 June) raises some fundamental issues. The inability of managers to help employees cope with stress only tells partof the story. The management of stress should start at the very top of theorganisation. Without high-level support, middle managers are left exposed andwill struggle to manage their own stress levels let alone be able to developstructures to support their staff. There is an assumption in this survey that an organisation’s onlyresponsibility is to equip managers and employees with better coping skills.But what about the root organisational causes of stress? Organisations should look in the mirror and examine their approach towork-life balance, internal communications, career development opportunitiesand workplace harassment or bullying, to name just a few potential areas ofconcern. It is virtually impossible to completely eliminate stress from a workplace,but organisations need to treat stress management more strategically. Laurence Collins Consulting manager, Ceridian Centrefile Ignore people at your perilThere has been a fundamental misreading of my article on MBAs‘What about the people?’ by many of your correspondents (Features, 25 June). The alarming finding of my research that there is littleteaching of how to manage and lead people in the typical MBA seems to have beeninterpreted as my arguing that there should be more modules on conventional HRtechniques.This is only one aspect. It is an imbalance that there is toolittle teaching on career planning, recruitment and talent retention, but myresearch also highlighted the lack of personal and leadership development.The courses remain obsessed with accountancy and strategicpositioning. It’s like teaching football on a blackboard while never actuallykicking a ball.What does a manager actually do in practice? All of their dayis spent dealing with people – negotiating, delegating, instructing, coachingand motivating. For nearly all of the training and development to focus on tactics,strategy and accountancy is lopsided. In a year that thousands of Enron workers have lost theirpensions and investors, the shirts off their backs, apologists for the MBAought to exercise a little more modesty.As for the point that 20 courses represent a small sample –this is nearly a fifth of the total, which is high in statistical terms. Carewas taken to ensure a spread of types of institution, to ensureinternationally-known universities, redbrick institutions and further educationcolleges were all included.Since reading your letters, I am even more alarmed by all thesepeople with an MBA who can’t get to the end of an article and remember the mainpoints.Philip WhitelyAuthor of the research on MBAs LettersOn 16 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.
