I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Warren Buffett is widely considered to be the best investor in the world today. He’s been investing in stocks and shares for the past 60 years. During this time, he has built a tremendous fortune for himself and his investors.Buffett doesn’t invest in any old business. He has several rules he always follows when analysing companies to determine if they are suitable additions to his portfolio. By following these laws, he’s been able to avoid significant losses over the years. They’ve also helped him dramatically improve his returns and enhance his reputation.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…And by following these practices, you may be able to improve your investment returns as well.Buffett buys cheapOne of Buffett’s top investment laws is to never pay too much for a stock. He uses several different approaches to analyse how much a company is worth, and he always tries to buy at a significant discount to his estimate of intrinsic value. This means buying with a wide margin of safety, in case something goes wrong.This isn’t the most exciting investment approach. Indeed, the investor only tends to make a few significant trades every year. However, the results speak for themselves. By waiting for the right opportunity, Buffett has been able to achieve market-beating returns for decades.Buy what you knowAnother of his rules is to only invest in companies you understand. The FTSE 100 is made up of 100 different equities and trying to understand every one of these businesses is virtually impossible.Buffett only buys a business if he knows and understands how it makes money, and it’s long-term growth potential. If he doesn’t understand how the company operates, he stays away. It’s that simple.By following the same approach, investors may be able to improve their investment returns.If you don’t understand a business, it’s impossible to tell if it’s a good investment or not. And if you don’t know if a company is a good investment, it’s nothing more than a speculative bet. Speculating on market movements can be a quick way to lose a lot of money.Focus on qualityBuffett doesn’t buy companies just because they look cheap. He’s interested in quality as well. For example, he’s often paid a relatively high price for a high-quality business, just because these organisations are often more predictable and profitable.As such, investors may be able to improve their returns by focusing on quality as well as value.All in all, we can learn a lot from the way Buffett has approached the stock market over the past six decades. Incorporating the three tips above into your investment process may substantially increase your investment returns over the long run. And help you build your financial nest egg.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Fisher says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA The Rev. Keith Johnson[St. Philips Church] The Rev. Keith Johnson, 53, passed away Tuesday, February 24, 2015 due to complications from cancer.Born in New Orleans in 1961, Keith grew up schooled in the particular values of his parents, Minnie and Robert Johnson.These virtues, including southern warmth, kindheartedness and a gracious respect of others, would shine in his ministry as a priest. He loved the novel To Kill a Mockingbird and would often listen to the soundtrack of the film when praying or writing. Atticus Finch’s innate goodness reminded Keith of his own father, as well as inspiring Keith to become his own man.Keith attended the University of Illinois, Champaign Urbana. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Following graduation, Keith went to help others by taking a position with the U.S. Social Security Administration in Detroit and then Key West, Florida.In 1998, Keith married Ginny Hare, and took on an instant family which included Ginny’s two children, Edward and Sarah. The family moved to Alexandria, Virginia, where Keith studied at The Virginia Theological Seminary. One of Keith’s joys was coaching Edward and his various teams in football. He coached Pop Warner football during his time in seminary, and continued coaching freshman and junior varsity ball.In 2001, he was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal Church by Bishop Leopold Frade. Later that year, he accepted a priesthood in the Diocese of Southeast Florida. Keith simultaneously served the church as rector of St. Matthew’s and assistant at St Paul’s in Delray Beach. Keith’s personal mission here was to bridge the racial gap between these two diverse parishes.From 2003 to 2008, Keith served as rector of St. Andrew’s in Ben Lomond, California. While here Keith served on the board of Valley Churches United Missions, a non-profit that provided food and assistance to over 7000 county residents. Keith next went on to minister as an assistant priest at Holy Trinity in Clearwater, Florida, for a few years. He then spent eighteen months at St. Luke’s in New Orleans before being called to Harlem’s historic St. Philip’s Church in 2012.During his time at St. Philip’s, Keith quickly emerged as a significant leader among the clergy and brought leadership to the revitalization of the Episcopal presence in Harlem. He embraced this calling at once, providing a reasonable, loving and gracious presence in that community.On Thursday mornings, Keith provided a ministry of presence to parolees at the Harlem Community Justice Center. As clergy for St Philip’s important inter-faith initiative, Keith supported these men and women with training in public speaking skills so they could tell their stories. Keith also established “Warriors of a Dream,” a neighborhood anti-violence youth initiative, as well as a local chapter of Integrity LGBT at St Philip’s. Keith lent his smile and presence as he rode on the Episcopal float in the annual Greenwich Village Gay Pride Parade. During Keith’s tenure, St Philip’s became a member of Ecclesia, a ministry providing Eucharist and meals to the homeless in Marcus Garvey Park on Sundays.Keith was one of six fellows in the Faith and Justice Fellowship program under the Federation of Protestant Welfare and Agencies and New York Theological Seminary. This program trains faith leaders to develop their abilities to become prophetic witnesses for fair social policies and equal justice.He is survived by his wife, Ginny, his step-children, Edward and Sarah, his parents and sister.

You can feel the viewpoint of the level difference with a sense of movement different from the stair space, and also climb up slowly and move around in the external environment and the landscape, at the same time in the XY direction from the GL. In addition, it allows you to sit or lie down on the bank to watch and appreciate the pastoral scenery of mountains, plains, and starry skies; it will be a privilege that only this home has that lets you experience the big “phenomenon scale” dynamically by the natural environment such as change of seasons and weather.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoIn the interior, kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and wet area are concentrated on the first floor, and hobby room and kids’ room are arranged on the second floor.

Business as usual won’t cut it, says International Development Secretary

first_imgBusiness as usual won’t cut it, says International Development Secretary “It will require us to change where we work and who we work with, and greater cooperation between DFID and our armed forces.“It will depend on the private sector.“It will require more sharing of data and working together.“It will compel us to leave no one behind.“It will make UK aid work harder – delivering for the world’s poor, but also for the UK’s security and prosperity, upon which UK aid depends.“It will require me to stop funding organisation that do not deliver our objectives, contribute to the Goals, or live up to our standards.”Bond, the international development network for UK charities, recently published a letter from 22 charities in which they committed to better action on safeguarding, including Oxfam GB, Plan International UK, UNICEF UK, Save the Children UK, WaterAid, and VSO. Speaking at yesterday’s (26 February) annual Bond Conference, International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt said that the recent sexual exploitation scandal had resulted because of a failure by the sector to put the beneficiaries of aid first, and that much change was needed.In her speech at the Bond Conference, Mordaunt said:“We failed to put the beneficiaries of aid first. The result was the grotesque fact of aid workers sexually exploiting the most vulnerable people, and threatening whistle-blowers if they protested.”She suggested that fundraising pressures, competition, and protecting charities’ reputations may have led to the problem of people not speaking out about sexual misconduct and called for the sector to put the needs of the beneficiaries of aid first, to live up to the values of the nation, and have a ‘to be list’ as well as a ‘to do list’ in order to right the current wrongs plaguing the sector.Making these changes, Mordaunt said, would improve performance, enable others to help, and gain the public’s support, who, she said “continue to give but…on many fronts they want us to raise our game: on what you do, on what I fund, and what together we can achieve.”In addition, Mordaunt drew attention to the Global Goals and said that the sector was also failing on delivering these. She announced that she will shortly bring forward a new development offer focused on delivering the Goals that will require significant changes in the way charities work, and will also see funding stop for organisations that do not deliver.She said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Picture: Penny Mordaunt MP, Kutupalong refugee camp, Bangladesh, 25 November 2017.
