Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The FTSE 100 has reached a nine-month high after improving investor sentiment lifted the prices of a range of UK shares. Vaccine news has been the key catalyst, with investors apparently becoming increasingly upbeat about the prospect of a return to normality in 2021.Despite the recent stock market rally, there are a number of large-cap shares that appear to offer good value for money. The index is still trading substantially below its all-time high. And with it having a solid track record of recovery, investing money in stocks today could prove to be a shrewd move.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…FTSE 100 buying opportunitiesThe FTSE 100 is still trading around 15% lower than its all-time high. As such, many UK shares appear to offer wide margins of safety. They also have capital growth potential over the coming years. After all, the index has always recovered from its bear markets, but has always gone on to produce new record highs that contribute to its high single-digit annual total returns.Therefore, companies that have recorded major share price falls this year, such as BP, IAG, Rolls-Royce and WPP, could offer scope for a long-term recovery. They appear to have the financial means to overcome challenging operating conditions, and have been able to strengthen their balance sheets since the start of the year. Moreover, they seem to have the right strategies to adapt their operations to cope with changing demand in the long run.Certainly, BP faces difficulties in shifting its resources to a low-carbon economy. Similarly, WPP is likely to experience further challenges as the coronavirus pandemic continues, while Rolls-Royce and IAG are set to encounter more difficulties due to a tough outlook for the airline sector. But all four companies trade at relatively low prices and could be among those UK shares that gain the most from a FTSE 100 recovery.UK shares with dividend-investing potentialThe FTSE 100’s dividend yield of 3.7% is lower than it was just a few months ago as a result of many UK shares rising in price. However, it continues to be relatively attractive in a world where making a passive income from other assets is tough due to low interest rates.Therefore, dividend-paying shares such as Vodafone, BAE and SSE could become increasingly popular over the coming years. They offer dividend yields higher than the wider index. They also appear to have solid financial performances that may provide greater resilience than many of their index peers.BAE could outperform the FTSE 100 because of its dominant market position and investment in new markets. Meanwhile, Vodafone and SSE appear to be shifting their focus to new growth areas. This could make them attractive buying opportunities ahead of a likely stock market recovery for UK shares in the coming years. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Saturday, 5th December, 2020

ABC NewsBy DANIELLE GENET andd KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — It’s been over a year since Paige Winter lost her leg and part of her hand from a bull shark attack off the coast of North Carolina in which her father jumped to the rescue.But like the tide, Winter and her family’s road to recovery have had highs and lows.Winter first told Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview on ABC News’ Good Morning America weeks after the incident that she refused to let the attack keep her down. Now, in a new Robin Roberts event special, Shark Attack: The Paige Winter Story, she and her family share exclusive details of the dramatic rescue, inspiring moments from their strides toward progress over the last year and her emotional return to the beach where the life-changing incident took place.“Summer 2019 was looking very promising. You know, school was about to end,” Winter told ABC News thinking back to her summer vacation plans before the attack. “It was lookin’ pretty good. I was excited. I was happy. Then, you know, sometimes things happen.”Winter, who was 17 at the time, said that on Sunday, June 2, her father Charlie Winter “wanted to have a family day,” but little did any of them know how much their strength and bond would be tested.“Everybody needed to get out. Everybody needed to just play,” Charlie Winter recalled.”We’re going to go have a good day at the beach. And that’s what we did.”The group — including Winter’s best friend Kale Wynant, who her mom Marcy Winter said she considers part of the family — went to Ft. Macon Beach and after finding a spot on the sand, made their way into the water.Winter recalled that it had “rained really hard the night before” and explained that made the water “brackish” and murky. “It was shallow for a long time and at first I’m like, ‘ugh I’m gonna go back, this is cold,’” she noted, but said she eventually decided to stay in.Once in the water with her sister Anais Winter and best friend Kale, she noticed her dad attempting to sneak up on them.Winter said she stepped on something in the water and thought it was her dad, thinking to herself “‘That’s fine. Real funny.’ And then I was like, ‘Ow. That kind of hurts.’ And then, I get pulled underwater. Like, completely yoked.”“When I came back up, I saw Paige get pushed out of the water, like pushed upwards,” Wynant recalled. “I just heard Anais say, ‘Paige, what are you doing?’”Anais Winter was the first of the family to see what was unfolding in the water.“I saw her get taken down by the shark and then I saw her blood come up,” she said.Winter likened the feeling of being pulled relentlessly to “playing with a dog” when it clings onto and shakes a rope side to side. “And then I was like, I don’t know what to do,’” she added.As she felt the shark’s teeth, which she compared to a bear trap, pierce into her hand, Winter attempted to break free. She said the shark let go for a moment and then bit down on her left leg instead.“It happened really fast, but a lot of thoughts were going through my head,” she remembered. “‘Am I going to drown or am I going to bleed out? I really don’t want to die.’ So I started praying.”Her dad, a former Marine turned firefighter, immediately rushed to help his daughter.“I ran, I just started running. It didn’t take me long to get there, but I just got there. I just ran, I ran where the pink was moving and I dove under and I grabbed Paige with my left arm and I brought her up,” he said. “When I brought her up, there was resistance.”Charlie Winter recalled the moment he came face to face with the ocean predator that he had to fight off.“There was a shark, this shark, this huge shark and it thrashed,” he said. “And I knew I had Paige and it was pulling me, and I had to anchor my feet down in the sand to stop me from moving out. And I just started to hit it. I hit it, man. I hit it so hard. So many times, just started to hit it.”Thinking back on the incident, Charlie Winter added, “I took that moment in, ’cause I needed to take that moment.”“I was looking at it, and I could feel the raw power of what that shark was trying to do,” he said. “That shark wasn’t there to be my friend. It tried to kill my daughter.”After he scooped her out of the water, Charlie Winter held her as her leg bled out and said, “I thought I was carrying my dead child.”911 dispatchers received frantic calls about the shark attack, with witnesses saying Winter’s leg was “almost gone.” One witness said fearfully, “I don’t know if she’s gonna make it.”“I thought this was it. She kept talking, she kept talking, she kept talking,” Winter’s dad said.Paige remembered, “I was just saying, ‘Dad, please help me. Please help me.’ And he’s like, ‘I got you. I got you.”“I kept saying, ‘I got you. I got you. I got you. I got you,’” Charlie Winter recalled of the repeated promise to get her out alive.Winter’s father thought back to when Paige was just a newborn and said, “I knew it was my job and my responsibility to take care of this little — this little baby.”After Charlie Winter got out of the Marine Corps, he became a firefighter and paramedic, because he said, “I wanted her to be proud to go to school, and say what her dad did for a living.”“I think my dad is like a real actual hero, you know? He goes and he saves lives every day. He does all the things he can,” Winter said. “He does his job really well.”Although Winter’s parents have not been married since she was nearly 2 years old, the pair told ABC News the decision to co-parent has made them good friends and they agree that they have “done a really good job.”Marcy Winter described her ex-husband as stalwart, steadfast and reliable, adding, “my kids have grown up knowing not only that people like that exist, but they’ve also got the safety net of knowing that like that person super exists in their world.”Tune in Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC to hear more about Paige Winter’s surgery, recovery and life over the last year after the attack, including her first steps using a prosthetic leg, her triumphant milestones during her senior year of high school and the emotional return to the scene on the shore where the attack took place.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Family-friendly proposals burdenOn 1 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today The Government’s recent family-friendly proposals could spell problems foremployers. In its response to the green paper on work and parents, the CBI saysit would be impractical to give new parents the statutory right to workpart-time as most firms wouldn’t be able to guarantee reduced hours. And itsays the proviso of a “harm test”, allowing companies to refuserequests to work part-time could lead to “uncertainty and more employmenttribunals”. Comments John Cridland, deputy director-general of the CBI,”Ministers should help parents balance family and work responsibilities.But they need to do it by encouraging flexible employment practices, ratherthan by introducing unnecessary regulations such as the right to part-timework.” And employers are also concerned that the recent budget has increased theamount of red tape involved in employing people. According to a straw poll fromthe Institute of Directors, the main problems are associated with the newmaternity and paternity entitlements and the difficulties of covering forabsent staff during statutory leave periods. George Cox, director general ofthe IoD, said, “Insufficient has been done to lessen the burden of stateinterference and regulation in the business environment.” The Government has extended maternity leave from 18 weeks to 26, raisingstatutory maternity pay to £75 per week next year and then to £100 by 2003,when men will be entitled to two weeks paternity pay, set at the same level. Employers will not be expected to swallow all of the increased costs aschanges to the national insurance system means that 60 per cent of businessescan claim back the full cost of paying SMP. However, there are concerns amongemployers that the real cost will be in providing cover. Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article
