Forget bitcoin! Here’s how I’d invest £20k for rapid wealth creation in 2020

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Vishesh Raisinghani | Wednesday, 8th January, 2020 | More on: ABDP DOTD I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

I’ve been following Bitcoin’s hyper-cyclical movements ever since 2012. It’s been a wild ride and I’ve made some money along the way, but also lost a hefty amount. Over time, I’ve come to realise that focusing on robust technology companies with a proven track record is clearly a better way to accumulate wealth. Once a technology company finds product-market fit, all it needs is good management and a long-term marketing strategy to create tremendous wealth for shareholders. Niche software companies that are creating solutions in an emerging industry are particularly attractive, simply because they have more room to grow. 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…With that in mind, here are two niche software companies I’ve recently added to my hyper-growth watch list.Self-driving carsThe rise of self-driving vehicles now seems inevitable. Although the technology is nowhere near ready yet, I expect technology companies to keep making incremental progress until most cars have at least some self-driving features, if not full autonomy, within the next decade.AB Dynamics (LSE: ABDP), which is based in Bradford on Avon, plays a key role in this incremental progress by providing automotive test systems for manufacturers. That means AB’s tools and software are useful today and are likely to be in high demand for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, these services are also lucrative. AB generated £13.5m in adjusted operating income on £58.0m in revenue last year, indicating a profit margin of 23.3%. Sales and profits have both expanded by roughly 38% annually over the past five years. Now, the company’s shares trade at a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 30.7, which means the P/E-to-growth (PEG) ratio is less than 1. In other words, this is a growth stock with immense potential that is fairly valued at the moment.  Marketing artificial intelligenceDotDigital Group (LSE: DOTD) is another high-growth, fairly valued tech stock that I believe is underestimated by the investment community. The company provides enterprise software that helps corporations market their products and services online. Their flagship product, Engagement Cloud, helps clients automate their online campaigns and manage online communities with a data-driven framework. The platform has been popular enough to attract 70,000 corporate users from over 156 countries. Altogether, the group has thousands of customers including several megabrands such as BP, ODEON, and Santander. Unsurprisingly, many of these corporations are repeat customers and long-term subscribers to the platform. In 2019, 86% of DotDigital’s revenue was reported as recurring.  Earnings per share expanded by 33% over the past year and management expects revenue to expand another 15% this year. That’s decent growth for a company currently valued at 24.5 times forward earnings. Bottom linePlenty of investors have made a killing by betting on Bitcoin over the years. However, the cryptocurrency is simply too volatile for my taste now. Instead, I prefer to focus on companies developing proven technologies that are clearly in demand. Over the long term, I expect these niche software providers to deliver substantial growth for my portfolio.  Image source: Getty Images.

Delays in Diagnosing Dementia are common

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Can it Put Seniors at Risk?From Florida Hospital – Apopka Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The study says that people who show signs of dementia but have not yet been diagnosed are actually twice as likely as patients who have been diagnosed to be doing everyday tasks like driving and cooking that can potentially be harmful.So it’s important to get the diagnosis as soon as you spot the signs. “In early-stage illness, some patients can continue employment, driving, independent volunteer activities or community involvement,” says Dr. Laird. “As the disease progresses, the patient will need supervision and then assistance for the various functional tasks we all do in day to day life.” “Typically there’s a loss first among the more complex tasks such as driving, financial management and decision making, shopping and meal preparation,” she adds. “At some point in the middle stages there’s usually sufficient loss of ability to manage complex matters and/or judgment lapses such that incapacity for personal decision making occurs. Later personal care activities become dependent including medication management, bathing, dressing, eating and eventually ambulating.”“The first hurdle is to understand when an elder is displaying changes in his or her abilities that goes beyond the changes in ability that nearly anyone living into their 80s and beyond has,” she explains. “Those individuals are at greatest risk of making a mistake as a result of the intellectual change of dementia. In addition to the incidents mentioned in the research, in my practice I have had patients who first come to attention after making errors with medications, getting lost while driving, failing to file taxes properly or starting a fire in the kitchen.”“Patients or families who notice change should bring it to the attention of the primary care physician and request an evaluation,” she says. “Some PCPs will complete the evaluation themselves, while others will refer to specialists including geriatricians, neurologists, and psychiatrists.”Sometimes, patients will be fully aware of the changes and will be agreeable to medical evaluation. Others will not be as cooperative. For families facing this challenge your doctor may have advice. There is also an Alzheimer’s Association hotline you may call at 1.800.272.3900. Dr. Rosemary De Angelis Laird, Geriatric and Internal MedicineA recent study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society suggests delays in diagnosing dementia can put seniors, and others, at risk. We checked in with Rosemary Laird, MD, who specialized in geriatrics and internal medicine at FloridaHospital, to get her thoughts on the topic.

Struggles of Indigenous peoples in the Yukon

first_imgWhitehorse, Yukon — The poorest sections of people living in Canada are Indigenous. Called the First Nations, they include American Indians, Inuit and Metis. Ever since 1763, when France ceded nearly all its colonies in North America, the ruling class of Canada has been trying, sometimes by force, sometimes by legal trickery or unjust laws, to seize land and resources from the First Nations.The results of these attacks, which should properly be called genocidal in intent, are clear and shocking. In Canada, Indigenous people control only 0.2 percent of the land while  settlers have 99.8 percent. The life expectancy of Indigenous people in Canada is seven years less than that of non-Indigenous. Unemployment rates for Indigenous people are four times higher. The money spent on educating Indigenous youth is a third of that spent on other youth. Their suicide rate is five times higher than that for non-Indigenous youth.This is the result of systematic oppression over the last 150 years. (“Unsettling Canada: A National Wake-up Call” by Arthur Manuel and Grand Chief Ronald M. Derrickson, 2015)The two most powerful tools in Canada’s repressive arsenal were the Indian Act of 1876, which is still around, though substantially amended in 1927 and 1951, and residential schools, which were introduced under the Indian Act. There were about 80 schools in 1931; the last one closed in 1996.The Indian Act defined the status of a woman based on that of her spouse. If he was not a member of a First Nation, neither was she. If he belonged to a different band (tribal government) and died, she might be obliged to move out of the community that had been her home for decades. The act created “reserves,” similar to U.S. reservations, that severely limited the land rights of Indigenous people, who were members of renamed First Nations and given European names. The act also restricted members of First Nations from leaving their reserves without permission from the local Indian agent.Residential schools — often the only education offered to Indigenous youth — were blatant agents of cultural genocide.  They removed children from their families with the goal of assimilating them into the dominant Canadian culture. Over the course of more than 100 years, some 30 percent of Indigenous children, about 150,000 youth, were placed there. At least 6,000 children died while attending these schools. Besides the attacks on their culture, thousands suffered psychological and physical abuse.Decades of protests, lawsuits and outrage over the schools grew so sharp that Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a hard-right conservative, offered a public apology on behalf of the Canadian government on June 11, 2008. A couple of years earlier, Canada’s highest court had awarded a class action settlement of $2 billion to school survivors.In 2010, the Canadian government issued a statement saying it would follow the principles of the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, although it would not officially adopt it. While Harper was still prime minister, the struggle around First Nations’ rights became intense.This May 10, Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett, representing the newly elected Liberal government, went to the U.N. and officially announced that Canada had changed its policy and would officially adopt the declaration.Gold vs. respect for First Nation rightsSome local struggles in the Yukon illuminate how First Nations try to overcome the decades of cultural genocide and economic assaults against their livelihood and the local ecology.Even though the Yukon was the site of a major gold rush at the end of the 19th century, and wound up producing an estimated 12.5 million ounces of gold, it didn’t have a solid road connection to the rest of North America until the U.S. Army built one in response to the Japanese invasion of Alaska during World War II.It is still isolated, with just 35,000 people — 25 percent of them First Nation — in a land area with a population density of 0.2 people per square mile, compared to Alaska’s 1.3. The Yukon is so rural that Yukon College in the largest city, Whitehorse, needs bear fences to protect its garbage cans. Security guards at the college walk students to their cars at night to protect them from coyotes.There are 14 different First Nations in the Yukon. The First Nation community center in Whitehorse has a fairly large, modern language lab. A number of First Nations offer cooking classes and  such traditional skills as hunting, dressing the kill, fishing and food preparation for older grammar school and high school students.In Dawson, where this college is located, local schools teach the Hän language to both First Nation and Canadian students.In Dawson, home of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation, local schools teach the Hän language to both First Nation and Canadian students in kindergarten through high school.Between 80 and 90 active placer mining operations for gold and other minerals exist in Yukon streams and rivers because they don’t require a lot of capital to set up. Earthmoving equipment and some simple sluice boxes generally do the job.Most are legacy operations, having been worked for a number of years, but there is still some prospecting. Recently, two prospectors raised a bit of capital and put in for 45 mining claims on Judas Creek, an area near Carcross and Marsh Lake in southern Yukon. It is in the traditional territory of the Kwanlin Dun and Carcross/Tagish First Nations and is adjacent to land of the Kwanlin Dun settlement.The Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board did not approve the application because it would have had an adverse effect on the Carcross caribou herd, a resource the First Nations began using hundreds of years ago. (Yukon News, May 13)Lawrence Ignace, director of heritage, lands and natural resources for the Carcross/Tagish First Nation, wrote, “If this application is approved to proceed in whole or in part, [the First Nation] will take necessary steps to stop the project from proceeding.” Canada’s recent acceptance of the U.N. declaration on Indigenous Rights gives the Carcross/Tagish a strong legal case.Indigenous people throughout Canada want and need economic development, but they say it has to be human in scale and respect their traditional economy and ecology. They have retained their identity after hundreds of years of oppression because they have waged stubborn, effective resistance, though at great cost.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF backs Bangladeshi media protest against digital security law

With two months to go to a general election, we urge parliamentarians to ensure that amending this law is one of the election campaign’s central issues.” BangladeshAsia – Pacific Media independence Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment Its latest victim is Shahidul Alam, a well-known photojournalist who has been languishing in prison since 5 August for posting a video on Facebook showing the scale of the student protests taking place in Dhaka at the time, during which journalists were attacked by pro-government activists. News The Digital Security Act was intended to replace the notorious and controversial section 57 of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act, which the government has used to silence dissent. Bangladesh is ranked 146th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) supports the strong show of opposition to Bangladesh’s new digital security law from the editors of the country’s leading newspapers, who are pressing for immediate changes. “We fully support the Bangladeshi journalists combatting a law whose provisions as regards press freedom are utterly absurd,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. In an unprecedented demonstration of unanimity, the editors of 16 Bangladeshi newspapers formed a human chain outside the National Press Club in Dhaka yesterday to demand amendments to nine of the articles in the Digital Security Act that was enacted last week. Daily Star editor Mahfuz Anam said the “Sampadak Parishad” (Editors’ Council) is calling for the law’s most draconian sections to be rewritten during the next session of parliament to ensure that they do not override the provisions of the Right to Information Act.
