Following the 2020 market crash, some investors may feel the aim of buying stocks to retire early is unlikely to be a sound strategy. After all, stocks have displayed a significant amount of volatility. In many cases, their price levels are substantially down on where they started the year.However, low valuations on offer across the stock market could provide buying opportunities for long-term investors. Equities have a solid track record of recovering from their very worst declines. As such, through buying a diverse range of stocks right now, you could improve your capacity to retire early.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…Capital growth potentialThe past performance of the stock market shows it’s outperformed many other mainstream assets over the long run. For example, its high single-digit annual returns are significantly greater than the returns of other assets, such as cash and bonds. Therefore, the stock market has historically been a sound place to invest. Especially for those is seeking to build a nest egg from which they can aim to retire early.The downside of buying stocks is that they’re also riskier than other assets, and can display significant amounts of volatility at times. However, those periods of decline can present buying opportunities for long-term investors. They enable you to buy high-quality stocks when they offer wide margins of safety. As such, they could offer even greater returns than the market average over the long run. And that enables them to make an even more positive impact on your portfolio’s performance.Recovery prospectsWhen stock prices are low, a recovery that helps you to retire early may seem to be highly unlikely. However, the stock market has a strong track record of overcoming even its most challenging periods.For example, during those difficult periods, such as the tech bubble and the financial crisis, many investors were likely to have felt a market rebound was highly improbable. News regarding the economy was downbeat, and there were significant risks facing many companies and industries.However, the stock market went on to post fresh record highs after those bear markets, adding to significant gains after every one of its previous bear markets. As such, while a recovery may not have seemed likely over recent months, there’s a high probability the stock market will follow its long-term path to post new record highs in the coming years.An opportunity to retire earlyEven if the stock market takes many years to recover, it can still help you to achieve your plans to retire early. Many investors have a long-term time horizon. Indeed, they’re not planning to retire over the next few years. As such, they’re likely to have sufficient time for their holdings to recover from present economic difficulties to post capital growth.Therefore, through buying strong businesses today at bargain prices and holding them for the long run, you can benefit from the stock market’s growth potential. This strategy could increase the size of your nest egg, and allow you to retire early.

Mason Health Physical Therapist Vanessa Creed Awarded Orthopedic Specialist Board Certification

first_imgFacebook7Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Mason HealthMason Health’s Rehabilitation Services Department has earned yet another prestigious designation. The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) of the American Physical Therapy Association awarded Vanessa Creed, PT, DPT, with the professional title of board-certified clinical specialist in orthopedic physical therapy. At Mason Health, Creed joins Keith Schmidt, PT, DPT, who became a board-certified clinical specialist in orthopedic physical therapy in 2018.Specialists in orthopedic physical therapy have an in-depth knowledge base and skillset to treat orthopedic injuries, including those that affect major joints such as the hip, knees, ankles and spine. Creed was motivated to pursue board certification because she wanted to expand upon her clinical experience and learn more about how to help patients with these orthopedic physical therapy needs.“Cases have become more complex,” she said. “When I first went to school, the cases were more neurological-based, where people sought physical therapy after a stroke or other neurological event. Now, people seek physical therapy for many different reasons. I want to be better. You can never stop learning. We should always push ourselves to learn more and become better in our fields.”Creed graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2001 from De La Salle University – Dasmariñas in the Philippines and obtained a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2015 from AT Still University of Health Sciences in Arizona. She is also certified in manual therapy, and worked in an assisted living facility prior to joining the Mason Health team in 2015.Creed and Schmidt have seen patients who need orthopedic physical therapy for a variety of reasons: work or sports injuries, automobile collisions, poor posture or body mechanics, lifestyle or footwear choices, or typical wear and tear of a joint. Some of Creed’s favorite cases to treat are patients with lumbar spine injuries, though back injuries used to intimidate her.“There is nothing better than the immediate satisfaction you can give a patient who has been suffering from back pain,” she said. “Those are often complex needs, but it’s amazing what we can do for patients and the huge effect it has on their life.”To obtain board certification in orthopedic physical therapy, candidates must submit evidence of required clinical practice and complete a rigorous examination demonstrating specialized knowledge and advanced clinical proficiency in a specialty area of physical therapist practice.“I am very proud of Vanessa and Keith for putting in the work and long hours to obtain this certification,” said Cheryl Woods, director of Rehabilitation Services. “A large number of our caseload is orthopedic, so having two board-certified members on staff is very beneficial to the patient.”Certifications are valid for 10 years. To date, more than 16,000 physical therapists are board-certified clinical specialists. ABPTS is the governing body that oversees the physical therapy clinical specialist certification and awards certificates to physical therapists meeting approved requirements.Mason Health, Public Hospital District No. 1 of Mason County, is certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and is a licensed and accredited acute care hospital with a level four emergency trauma designation. There are more than 100 physicians on staff in 19 specialties. Mason Health now offers 3D Mammography Services.

Put election dates on your calendar

first_imgOverall, the electorate is becoming less inclined to affiliate with either major party and is becoming somewhat less representative of the total population. We encourage voters to work to change that latter trend. Given the excitement that the wide-open presidential primary should generate in the months leading up to the Feb. 5 vote, now is a good time to get registered and get involved in the democratic process.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.In Los Angeles County, the percentage of eligible voters who are registered went from about 72 percent four years ago to about 68 percent today. The number of people on the county’s voter rolls has actually dropped by more than 100,000 over the same time period. Another trend is the increase in California voters who decline to state their party. Their numbers are up 3 percent. In Supervisor Don Knabe’s Fourth District, which includes much of the South Bay, the number of decline-to-state voters rose from 15.8 percent in 2003 to 19.3 percent today. The proportions of Democrats and Republicans compared to all registered voters in the Fourth District are down by about 1.5 percent. In the 53rd Assembly District, which includes Torrance and the beach cities, decline-to-state voters now represent 21.3 percent percent of the electorate, up from 18 percent four years ago. These independent-minded voters often decide the outcome of close elections. Under the current rules, they have two options during the presidential primary: They can choose from among the Democratic Party candidates or those of the American Independent Party. With a number of South Bay elections coming up on Nov. 6, not to mention the presidential primary vote in February, it’s a good time for would-be voters to get informed about the latest electoral trends and deadlines. First off, county residents should understand that Monday is the deadline to register for the November vote, which in the South Bay will include elections for city councils and school boards. Voter registration forms are available at a number of locations, such as libraries, city clerk offices and post offices. To vote, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years of age by Election Day. Those in prison or on parole for conviction of a felony are not eligible. We hope a larger number of voters will decide to take part in the upcoming elections, but statistics just released by Secretary of State Debra Bowen’s office are not terribly encouraging. Bowen released figures comparing the makeup of the California electorate prior to the last presidential primary in 2004 to today’s voters. Statewide, the percentage of eligible voters who are registered has fallen to 68 percent, compared with 71percent four years ago. last_img read more

Mens Basketball Ohio State matches up against Purdue FortWayne in home opener

Ohio State sophomore guard Musa Jallow (2) dribbles the ball down the court during the first half of the game against UNC Pembroke on Nov. 1. Ohio State won 81-63. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorFollowing a statement win against Cincinnati in the team’s season opener, it could be easy for Ohio State to overlook Purdue Fort-Wayne, a Summit League team that won only 18 games last season.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann knows his team can’t do that.Last season, the Mastodons went into Bloomington, Indiana and defeated the Hoosiers on the road by 20 behind 28 points from then-redshirt junior guard John Konchar. Indiana finished No. 6 in the Big Ten in 2018.“Pretty much every day it’s been mentioned,” Ohio State sophomore guard Musa Jallow said. “We know that they’re capable of beating us just like we’re capable of beating them, so we’re gonna take them seriously.”Projected StartersOhio State (1-0)G — C.J.

In the season opener, the Mastodons lost to No. 21 UCLA 96-71, coming back home and annihilating Division III program, Earlham, 112-51.Holtmann said the struggles Purdue Fort-Wayne had against UCLA are not going to happen against his team.“Their length bothered them and UCLA’s much longer than we are across the board,” Holtmann said. “We’re going to have to be really disciplined, it’s gonna test us, in a lot of ways it’s gonna test us more because of how they spread you out then the game the other night.”The Mastodons are led by Konchar, who leads the team in points per game, rebounds per game and assists per game this season while shooting 62.1 percent from the field.Konchar is one of five players scoring in double figures through two games for Purdue Fort-Wayne, and Holtmann knows what the redshirt senior can bring.“He’s phenomenal,” Holtmann said. “He’s versatile, I know many people have had him as one of the very best players in the country, but they have good players around them as well, really good players around them.”The Buckeyes come into their home opener with a 64-56 victory on the road against the Bearcats, led by 15 points from sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson. Ohio State held Cincinnati to 27.4 percent shooting in the game.Sophomore forward Andre Wesson said, even with the change from Cincinnati’s defense-first approach to Purdue Fort-Wayne’s high-scoring offense, the mindset doesn’t change.“We just fall on just focusing on ourselves, really just focusing on our defensive principles,” Wesson said. “That’s kind of what Coach (Holtmann) wants us to do, just focus on what we can control at the end of the day and that’s playing the defense that he’s taught us to play.”Ohio State comes to the Schottenstein Center for its home opener against Purdue Fort-Wayne, with tip-off at 4 p.m. on Sunday. read more
