The stock market crash caused many shares to become undervalued across a wide range of sectors. While some have recovered to a large extent, there are still opportunities for long-term investors to generate high returns.With monetary policy stimulus likely to lead to an improving economic outlook, and the stock market having a solid track record of recovery, now could be an opportune moment to buy high-quality businesses. Over the long run, it could even lead to you obtaining a seven-figure portfolio.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…Cheap stocks after a market crashThe prospects for a number of industries continue to be uncertain. For example, changing consumer trends could impact on the retail sector, while weaker demand for resources may cause challenging financial prospects for many oil and gas companies.Therefore, there are still a number of stocks that appear to offer wide margins of safety. Certainly, many of them aren’t as cheap as they were a number of weeks ago during what was one of the fastest declines in the stock market’s history.But investors who are looking to use the stock market’s cyclicality to their advantage, in terms of buying at low prices and selling at higher prices, appear to have a number of opportunities available.Economic recoveryThe market crash suggests investors are downbeat about the economy’s near-term outlook. While this may prove to be correct, in the long run, the world economy has a solid track record of delivering positive growth following its recessions.For example, it recovered to post strong growth following the global financial crisis. There were times during that downturn when it felt as though economic growth would never return. The same prospects may be felt by some investors in the coming months. But with major fiscal and monetary policy stimulus, a successful economic recovery seems highly likely.Economic growth is likely to produce increasingly favourable operating conditions for most sectors. This could boost their earnings growth rates and lead to higher stock prices in the coming years.Relative appealThe crash may also have dissuaded some investors from buying equities in the near term. They may currently favour less risky assets, such as bonds and cash, in order to preserve the value of their portfolios.However, over the long run, investor sentiment towards stocks is likely to improve. The return prospects available from other mainstream assets could prove to be highly disappointing, due to low interest rates that may now be present for a number of years.This lack of relative appeal may lead to rising stock prices over the coming years that lifts the value of your portfolio. Through buying shares today while they are undervalued, you could generate high returns that increase your chances of making a million.
to go further Organisation Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law RSF_en “We are relieved to learn that the trial of Mazen Darwish and his colleagues has ended with their unconditional release under this amnesty,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“These journalists and human rights activists were not guilty of any crime and paid the high price of more than three years in prison for legitimate activities. The decision to apply the 2014 amnesty to their case is good news although long overdue. We ask the authorities to free all the journalists who are unjustly detained in Syria.”Darwish was awarded the Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Prize in 2013 and was on the Reporters Without Borders list of “100 Information Heroes.” He and his colleagues were facing up to 15 years in prison under article 8 of the 2012 anti-terrorism law on a charge of “publishing information about terrorists acts.”Two of the five defendants were released provisionally in February 2013, while Darwish and the other two, Hani Al-Zitani and Hussein Ghreer, had been granted a provisional release in the past six weeks – Zitani and Ghreer in mid-July and Darwish, who was being held by a different security department, on 10 August.All of them should have been included in the June 2014 general political amnesty, which authorized the release of all activists arbitrarily held in connection with legitimate activities. The amnesty, legislative decree No. 22 of 9 June 2014, covered the charge on which Darwish and his SCM colleagues were held.According to our sources, the decision will take official effect on 16 September after the final wording has been drafted. It has to take account of the fact that Zitani and Ghreer were not present at the trial.According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, at least 30 journalists and online information activists continue to be held by the Syrian government while at least 29 others (including nine foreigners) are either missing or being held hostage by Islamic State or other armed extremist groups.Ranked 177th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Syria is the world’s most dangerous country for journalists.

Between the 1970s and the 1990s, farmers helped to reduce the number of people on earth suffering from hunger from one-third to one-tenth of the world’s population. Even now, there is work to be done to address worldwide hunger.Students and faculty of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) gathered Tuesday at the college’s seventh annual International Agriculture Day reception to celebrate a commitment to the international cooperation and scholarship that will be needed to further reduce this number.“The challenge we face is to figure out how to feed the 9 billion people who will be on this planet in 2050,” CAES Dean and Director Sam Pardue said. “And we need to figure it out in a way that not only provides the nutrition that is so badly needed but in a way that protects the environment and protects natural resources.“It is our goal in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences to help equip students to meet that need in the future.”Keynote speaker J. Scott Angle, president and chief executive officer of the International Fertilizer Development Center, told students that the key to increasing food supplies in this century will be sustainable intensification, growing more food on less farmland with fewer environmental impacts.That will be possible through improved soil health, smarter fertilizer use and crops that are bred to be more resilient and water efficient, he said.Smallholder farmers, who produce the bulk of the food in developing nations in Africa and Southeast Asia, need access to appropriate fertilizers and technologies that allow them to leverage the resources available in their countries and communities.“It’s not going to be easy, as I said. If it were easy, someone would have already done it,” Angle said. “But that’s the challenge that you will face, to find ways to grow more food on the same or maybe even less land, and maybe even less water. That’s the challenge that universities have in this country. It’s the challenge that African universities are facing. It’s the challenge that governments in Africa and Asia face. They need to encourage more food production to feed their hungry populations.”With improved soil health practices that keep more organic matter in the soil, soil testing, and the availability of micronutrient amendments like zinc, smallholder farmers could increase their yields and act as a carbon sink. Agriculture’s untapped ability to sequester carbon in the soil could help African governments pay for outreach, education and subsidy programs that could lead to these more productive farms, Angle said.These are the types of solutions that students and faculty members gathered at Tuesday’s event will develop in the coming century, he said.The CAES Office of Global Programs, which hosts the International Agriculture Day reception each spring, honored some of the college’s most globally minded students with travel grants, scholarships and awards at the event. Students who will graduate this year with the college’s International Agriculture Certificate were also recognized.International Agriculture Certificate International Agriculture Certificate students expand their global perspective by participating in internationally focused coursework, language study and a hands-on international internship aligned with their academic and career goals.Anna Hartley, bachelor’s degree in agricultural education and an internship in Villahermosa, MexicoAiden Holley, bachelor’s degree in international affairs with an Organic Agriculture Certificate and an internship in Yerevan, ArmeniaTatum Monroe, bachelor’s degree in international affairs and horticulture minor, and an internship in Belem, BrazilSarah Pate, bachelor’s degree in biological science and an internship in Padova, ItalyCarleen Porter, bachelor’s degree in animal science and an internship and Perugia, ItalyMary Shelley, bachelor’s degree in agricultural communication and an internship in Cluj-Napoca, RomaniaAnna Trakhman, bachelor’s degree in environmental economics and management and Spanish minor, and an internship in Zurich, SwitzerlandAddie Tucker, bachelor’s degree in agricultural education and an internship in Yungilla, EcuadorGraduate International Travel Awards These awards will fund an international activity that supports each student’s interest in international collaboration and in global issues.
