Here’s what I’d do if the FTSE 100 closed tomorrow 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. This week, the news broke that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has put a block on companies publishing results because of the coronavirus crisis. Speculation inevitably followed that it could lead to a full market shutdown. Could the FTSE 100 really close tomorrow, and what should we do?The FCA’s ‘strong request’ asks companies to “observe a moratorium on the publication of preliminary financial statements for at least two weeks,” but I’m not entirely sure what that will achieve. The FCA says that, due to the shifting nature of the coronavirus response, “it is important that due consideration is given by companies to these events in preparing their disclosures. Observing timetables set before this crisis arose may not give companies the necessary time to do this.”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…But that’s not going to change what happened in, say, the year ended December 2019. So why can’t we have those results? Sure, the outlook for most companies will be up in the air. But we know that anyway, and we can wait for further trading updates. And what difference will two weeks make?FTSE 100 closedownAnyway, my puzzlement aside, how could we cope if we should face the market shutdown that some people fear? Firstly, I really don’t think the speculation is helpful. One of the last things we need now is the spreading of rumours, which would surely scare more people into selling their shares. And that could make for more turmoil, and perhaps increase the chances of intervention by the authorities.But then, let’s look to the bigger picture. Warren Buffett urges us to “buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.” But do you really do that?Long-term holdI try to, and I never buy shares that I don’t intend to hold for at least five years. I don’t always get it right, and I’ll sell sooner than that if I realise I made a mistake — for example, not sticking to my usual investing criteria. My purchase of Premier Oil was like that, and when my mistake had sunk home, I sold. As it happens, I’m now glad I did.As for my current holdings, I have none that I want to sell at today’s prices. Or for at least five years, in fact. So if the FTSE 100 closed its doors for trading tomorrow, I’d have no problem on that score.I want to buyA market shutdown would stop me buying shares, though. And as the current market crash is making a lot of shares look very tempting, I really would not like that.But if I couldn’t actually buy shares, that wouldn’t stop me dripping money into a Stocks and Shares ISA, or transferring what I can afford into my SIPP. It would be tempting to hold off on the savings front if there were no shares to buy for a while, but I reckon that’s the biggest mistake I could make. Money I don’t transfer over to my investments now is money that won’t compound for me over the next five, 10, and more years.But what will I do specifically, now, in case the FTSE 100 really does close?

The site is a compelling 200-acre parcel located north of Santa Fe. The building is situated on the north slope of a ridgeline, with vistas of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the east, the Jemez Mountains and the city of Los Alamos to the west, and San Antonio Peak, near the border of New Mexico and Colorado, to the north. Save this picture!© Kate RussellThe art space is located in the center of the building and forms the path that connects all of the main living areas, from the protected entrance on the south to the fully glazed wall of the main living area on the north. The rooms to the east and west are open to views of the sunrise and sunset over the mountains.Save this picture!© Kate RussellThe search for the historic architectural context of the region led to Northern New Mexico’s Chaco Canyon and particularly Pueblo Bonito, built by the Anasazi between A.D. 1030 and 1079. The Anasazi left no written language, but the language of their architecture, rock art carvings and sunlight markings still remain. At Pueblo Bonito, the Anasazi’s built with load-bearing walls which have cores of rough, flat stones covered on both sides with a veneer of friable sandstone spalls. These materials, and the Anasazi’s use of using sunlight as an indicator to mark the seasons by singling out the solstices and equinoxes, was inspiration for the Casa Valle Escondido.Save this picture!© Kate RussellTo arrange the sun’s path at noon to fall exactly down the center of the Casa Valle Escondido, the house was precisely located by transit sighting to the North Star Polaris at night and the Sun at solar noon. The baffles at each side of the central skylight allow a beam of light sixteen inches wide to strike the center of the floor at noon. As the sun moves east to west, the beam narrows to a thin line as it approaches the base of the wall. No direct sunlight strikes the wall and thus the artwork. Save this picture!© Kate RussellBecause natural light is the most desirable for viewing art, along the sides of the art space a system of skylights was developed which reflects diffuse sunlight onto the walls and art. A full-scale cross-section mockup was built at the site to produce an arrangement that would block direct sunlight, with its damaging ultra violet rays, while at the same time deliver reflected light, optimal for viewing art, to the wall surfaces.Save this picture!© Kate RussellThe building materials, inspired by the historical architecture of the region, were selected to blend into the natural environment. The masonry bearing wall veneer is “moss rock” or spalled Pecos sandstone, gathered from the base of the north facing slopes of the Sangre De Cristo mountains. The natural uncut face with lichen growth is set in an uncoursed ledgerock pattern with mortar set behind the stone for a dry-stacked appearance. The exposed weathering steel structure with round tube columns recalls the ancient pueblo’s use of peeled pine timber as columns. The guard rails of the exterior deck are made of weathering steel grating that becomes nearly transparent against the natural landscape. Walls and ceilings are plaster, tinted to match the limestone flooring.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: MASS Design Group ‘Beyond The Building’Videos10 Unbuilt Projects Honored With Progressive Architecture AwardArchitecture News Share Year: “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBucchieri ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta FeHousesUnited StatesPublished on February 20, 2014Cite: “Casa Valle Escondido / Bucchieri Architects” 20 Feb 2014.

The overall oil levels in last year’s soybean crop increased over the previous year – but average protein fell. That’s according to a recent soy-checkoff funded study. According to the soy checkoff’s annual U.S. Soybean Quality Survey – the oil level in the U.S. soybean crop rose just slightly to 18.5-percent – with protein dropping a half-point to 34.3-percent. Dr. Seth Naeve – who conducted the study – says the drought likely had a hand in holding protein levels down. He says weather has a dramatic impact on soybean quality. Overall – he says the quality was pretty good considering the conditions. United Soybean Board Customer Focus Action Team Chair Sharon Covert says the results of the survey are important to the biggest users of U.S. soy. She says U.S. soybean growers should take every possible course of action to improve soy oil and meal – which will help protect and expand markets.Starting with the 2013 crop – the checkoff will implement a new program to monitor weather conditions in soybean test plots and correlate that information with quality outcomes and variety performance. The work will complement the Soybean Quality Survey.

Local lawyers will not touchthe case and the authorities have refused to release him on bail.When Farah was arrested, he was placed in solitary confinement at Gabodeprison and only his mother was allowed to visit him. He was not officiallycharged with any crime but some said the deputy head of the army, Gen.Zakaria Cheik Ibrahim, had filed a complaint against the paper after itcriticised him on 17 April for lacking “neutrality” and saying the army”must not take sides.”A few days later, special police went to Farah’s home and to MRDheadquarters without search warrants and seized seven typewriters, a photoenlarger, photocopier ink and all the newspaper’s archives. Farah has been jailed several times in recent years. He was mostly chargedwith violating the press law and given prison sentences or fined.

Ovidiu Dugulan/iStockBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The novel coronavirus has now killed more than 753,000 people worldwide.Over 20.9 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks. The United States is the worst-affected country in the world, with more than 5.2 million diagnosed cases and at least 167,242 deaths. Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:5:33 a.m.: CDC: Up to 200,000 deaths by Labor DayThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicted in its latest forecast that the U.S. coronavirus death toll could reach 200,000 by Labor Day as children across the country head back to school.Its national ensemble forecast predicts that 4,200 to 10,600 new COVID-19 deaths will be reported for the week ending on Sept. 5 and that 180,000 to 200,000 total COVID-19 deaths will be reported by that date.Last month, the CDC predicted there would be between 160,000 and 175,000 deaths by Aug. 15. As of Aug. 13, with more than 1,000 deaths a day every day for more than two weeks, there have been 167,097 deaths.The U.S. surpassed 100,000 COVID-19 deaths on May 27.New cases continue to decrease across the country week-over-week, but the rate of new deaths have increased over the same period, according to a Federal Emergency Management Agency memo obtained by ABC News.There were 7,517 deaths recorded from Aug. 5 to 12, which marked a 2.3% increase in new deaths compared with the previous week. The national test-positivity rate remains at 6.5%.ABC News analyzed state coronavirus trends across all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, and found there were increases in cases in two states (Hawaii and Illinois) and Puerto Rico, increases in the daily rate of positivity in 15 states plus D.C., increases in hospitalizations in 19 states, and increases in daily deaths in 23 states, D.C, and Puerto Rico.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

In a recent paper (Goulletquer & Wolowicz, 1989), data are presented which show that determination of the organic content of mollusc shells by weight loss on ignition may over-estimate this component by a factor of 2·5 to 4·8. They then go on to conclude in their discussion that Rodhouse et al. (1984) had over-estimated the organic content of Mytilus edulis shells by a factor of 2·5 through combustion at 540°C.
