A stock market crash is a fantastic opportunity to buy FTSE 100 companies at reduced prices. You have to exercise caution though. Some embattled sectors will take a long time to recover from the Covid-19 crash, notably the travel sector.Airlines have been hit hard by the Covid-19 lockdown. Their revenues plunged nearly to zero, as they grounded operations from mid-March to the end of June. At the same time, they still had hefty fixed costs, such as maintaining their fleets.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…Billionaire investor Warren Buffett dumped his four holdings in US airlines after the stock market crash, a move that looks increasingly prescient as we face a second wave of quarantines. He said at the time: “We like those airlines. But the world has changed.”No quick recovery from the stock market crashBuffett added that he hopes the sector “corrects itself in a reasonably prompt way,” but things seem to be getting worse.FTSE 100-listed International Consolidated Airlines Group and easyJet are down more than two thirds after the market crash, with the Ryanair Holdings share price down 30%. IAG and easyJet are down 7% this morning, with Ryanair falling nearly 5% after the France 14-day quarantine announcement.EasyJet still plans to operate its full schedule in the coming days, but many Britons may now be ready to give up on this summer. Only last week, Ryanair said it expected to operate around 60% of its normal August schedule, rising to 70% in September. It won’t be so hopeful now. Airlines also have the cost and effort of compensating those who can’t, or won’t, fly.Today’s news that easyJet had completed its aircraft sale and leaseback programme did little to improve the mood, even though it raised £608m, at the upper end of forecast guidance. Instead, it was taken as an indication of how bad the things still are, months after the stock market crash.Buffett isn’t flyingThe industry is being turned upside down. Last month, BA forwarded plans to retire its entire 31-strong fleet of 747 ‘jumbo’ jets, after half a century. They were due to be phased out over the next few years, but this still looks symbolic.FTSE 100 airlines look incredibly cheap, thanks to the stock market crash. IAG trades at just 1.88 times earnings, but don’t be fooled. September’s planned £2.5bn rights issue will dilute existing shareholdings by 50%, inflicting yet more pain.The industry is in disarray, as is government policy. Yes, I know Buffett’s mantra about “being greedy when others are fearful,” but you can take that principle too far.As Buffett has also said: “Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.” The problem with the airline sector is that nobody knows what they’re doing. Foreign travel will remain precarious until we get a Covid-19 vaccine.No industry goes through this level of chaos without a serious reckoning at the end of it. That’s why I’m looking elsewhere for stock market crash buying opportunities. Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

England head to the home of Manchester City on Saturday for the game that no-one wants. Stick 100 points on Uruguay and frankly who cares? Struggle to put the South Americans away and the knives will be sharpened even more for Stuart Lancaster and his coaching team.Score a mere 50 and they will be beaten by the stick of 2003 again, after all, England’s last world-class team put 111 points on Uruguay in Brisbane that year.In the great scheme of things, England could score 400, and it means the sum total of nish, nada and nothing – England are already out of a World Cup which will go on without them for the next three weeks.Feisty: Uruguay will provide stiffer opposition than previous yearsThere are some fans who have tickets for this weekend’s funeral pyre of a game and, frankly, they can’t be bothered to make the trip.Well they might be missing out – they could say they were in there at the start of England’s journey to World Cup glory in 2019. In true sporting parlance England must draw a line under it and move on.But how about moving on to the Six Nations instead and let the 2019 World Cup, take care of itself?Now is not the time to chuck the baby out with the bath water and have a complete re-shuffle of the squad. Yes, there should be changes, not the major surgery some are calling for, and just because a bloke might not be around in 2019 does not mean he can’t do a job in the next year or two.Back in the day: England last won a Grand Slam in 2003England have got out of the habit of winning trophies, barring the odd one-off pot such as the Cook and Calcutta Cups and it is about time they had one to put on the shelf at Twickenham.England have not nailed a Six Nations title since 2011, and we all remember what happened that year, so the focus should move to winning that now. Park all thoughts of Japan in four years’ time and just go out and win a medal or two. They are called the All Blacks and they have mastered the trick of filling their boots whilst slowly introducing players to Test rugby.England have nicked quite a few ideas off the New Zealanders over the last few years, this is one Lancaster or his successor should pinch immediately. In the last four years England have come second in the Six Nations every year and have lost Test series away to South Africa and New Zealand whilst winning one in Argentina in 2013. It is time to get some silverware for the cleaners to polish in South West London.Lancaster’s first game in charge was at Murrayfield in February 2012 and a cuddly toy for anyone who can name the men who made their Test debuts that day. For the record they were Brad Barritt, Lee Dickson, Phil Dowson, Owen Farrell, Ben Morgan, Geoff Parling and Jordan Turner-Hall. The week after, in Rome, Rob Webber made his first appearance and England finished runners-up in the championship.Elsewhere Charlie Morgan has picked a possible 23 for 2019 and his crystal ball gazing looks like it may have come up trumps.But whoever is England coach in the New Year should not pick that 23 to run out in Edinburgh on 6 February next year.Still going: Mike Brown is 30 but is still performing at the right top levelMike Brown will be 34 at the next World Cup and you wouldn’t want to be the person telling him he is finished as England build for the future. If an old dog like Nick Easter would help win the Six Nations then pick him, likewise Dylan Hartley. Then the coach can gradually bring in players like Henry Slade – who makes a belated World Cup debut at the weekend – Jamie George, Paul Hill, Maro Itoje and Jack Clifford.There is a model to follow in all of this. Since 2011 there is a side who have given international debuts to 37 players but managed to maintain their place at the top of the world rankings and won three Rugby Championships in the meantime. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England’s World Cup exit has led to calls for yet another cull of the playing staff – but they have been down that road before. How about winning something first?

Charities Institute of Ireland calls for change in charity tax regulations The Charities Institute of Ireland (Cii) is calling for the €250 limit for tax relief on charitable donations to be reduced to €100 as part of its submission for the next budget.Cii say such a reduction will incentivise and encourage more donations. The submission in relation to the €250 threshold is one of a number of suggestions contained in Cii’s budget proposals designed to increase funding to the charitable sector.Cii says it is working with the Revenue on the Charitable Donation Scheme (CDS) to simplify its operation and administration. Cii and Revenue plan to examine the CDS for more digital processes to make the scheme more transparent and efficient for both the Revenue and charities.A digitalised scheme would allow for one off donations to be eligible for tax relief. This, say Cii, would be of particular benefit for crisis campaigns.Cii is also proposing additional Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT) relief to encourage charitable donations in wills.As a way to ease the burden of VAT for charities, the budget submission is asking the Minister to increase the VAT compensation allowance for charities to be increased from €5 million to €20 million.The Charities Institute of Ireland was formed in 2016 following a merger of the Irish Charity Tax Reform Group and Fundraising Ireland. Cii’s role is to support its membership through advocacy, education and communication. 184 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Last week – Walmart announced its commitment to sustainable and responsible farming – something National Pork Producers Council President Ron Prestage says pork producers do every day. Prestage says pork producers ensure animal health and well-being and a safe, wholesome food supply by responsibly using antibiotics and providing humane and compassionate care for their animals. Prestage says Walmart’s recognition of that proves America’s farmers should be setting food policy. The U.S. pork industry has long-standing training and certification programs that have worked to ensure farmers and veterinarians are responsible. The industry also works with USDA and FDA to best accomplish meaningful reporting of antibiotics use data. Prestage says America’s hog farmers are committed to producing safe, affordable and healthful foods while using industry practices designed with input from animal care experts to provide humane care for their pigs ag every stage of life.

ReddIt Previous articlePatterson announces new 2-year contract extensionNext articleStudents wait hours in line for Big 12 Championship tickets Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin printThis has been a season of redemption for Horned Frog football.TCU is 5-1 this year against teams it lost to last season. That one defeat was to Oklahoma in Norman and now the Horned Frogs have a second chance. This game isn’t just for pride, the first Big 12 Championship Game since 2010 is on the line Saturday at AT&T Stadium.Patterson said Monday on a conference call with reporters TCU has to start a lot faster against OU. The defense will also have to stop the Sooners ground game.“We have to come in with a different attitude this time around because we were a little in awe of the situation, which I was surprised about,” Patterson said.Defensively, matching up better with Sooner running back Rodney Anderson is a must. The redshirt sophomore from Katy, TX gashed Patterson’s defense for 291 yards rushing and receiving with four touchdowns, two rushing and two receiving. “We needed to tackle the running back: Rodney Anderson is a good player and we need to do a better job against him because half the time we didn’t tackle him when he came out of the backfield,” Patterson said. “It’ll be a chess match just like the last one, we’ll have to start out a lot faster this time around.”Mistakes also hurt: Wide receiver John Diarse picked up an unnecessary roughness penalty on TCU’s first play from scrimmage, kicker Ryan Graf missed a 30-yard field goal and defensive end Mat Boesen was ejected early in the second quarter for kicking.TCU quarterback Kenny Hill said the missed field goal was a turning point as OU regained the lead, 10-7.“After we missed a field goal and then we went three and out on the next drive and then they went back and scored,” Hill said. “You know it’s those stops early; we got to put up points early and we got to be able to match them.”Patterson said that shouldn’t have rattled his veteran team, which includes 21 scholarship seniors.Boesen is coming off a record-setting performance against Baylor with 5 ½ sacks. The senior set TCU and Big 12 records, while being just a 1/2 sack short of an NCAA record. “Mat has a really good player on the other side in Ben Banogu, so it’s hard to double him,” Patterson said. “He plays with great energy, and he has a wrestling background, so he’s great with leverage and technique, plus, he has great speed.”The Horned Frog defense should be close to full strength. Defensive starters: safety Niko Small and linebacker Travin Howard, the team’s leading tackler, are expected back.Howard, the Horned Frogs’ leading tackler, made the trip to Texas Tech two weeks ago but did not play because of an ankle injury.

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“I thought the kid was defending himself, I’m not happy about, but I’m a big boy and I’ve been told no before,” Patterson said. “We had to miss players in the past, and it’s disappointing we got in that situation, but it is what it is. We played without Mat [Boesen] earlier in the season and in this game we play with the pieces you have.”Meanwhile, Oklahoma expects TCU’s best shot. “They’re not putting in scrubs,” Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said Monday on a conference call with reporters. “It will be a challenge facing them Saturday.”Kickoff for TCU and Oklahoma is set for 11:30 a.m. at AT&T Stadium.“We wanted to be in position to play in this championship and here we are,” Patterson said. “So here we go.” + posts ReddIt Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.
