Forget buy-to-let. I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA today to make a million Making a million from the FTSE 100 may seem unlikely after the index’s recent market crash. It faces an uncertain near-term outlook that could realistically cause its price level to decline.As such, some investors may feel that buy-to-let properties offer less risk and a greater chance of generating high returns in the long run.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…However, the FTSE 100 has a strong track record of recovery from its most challenging periods. Investors who can buy a diverse range of stocks today, ahead of an improving period for the index over the long run, that may generate high returns to improve their chances of making a million.Long-term recovery potentialThe chances of the FTSE 100 returning to its record high may seem somewhat unlikely at present. After all, the UK economy is yet to fully emerge from lockdown and is likely to experience a recession over the coming months. This could cause business, consumer and investor confidence to come under pressure. In turn, that may mean the valuations of a range of large-cap shares may decline.However, the FTSE 100 has experienced similarly challenging economic periods on a number of occasions during its lifetime. At times, the index has lost over half of its value in a matter of months as weak economic data has prompted increasing risk aversion among investors.The index has always not only recovered from such periods, but has then gone on to post new record highs after every one of its bear markets. Investors who’ve taken a long-term view of the index and its prospects through buying stocks when they trade at bargain prices have generally been highly rewarded.Buy-to-let appealBy contrast, the returns from buy-to-let properties could be less favourable than those offered by FTSE 100 shares. House prices may decline in the near term so that the sector offers better value for money. But factors such as changing tax rules could mean net returns from buy-to-let property are relatively unattractive.For example, many landlords will no longer be able to offset mortgage interest payments against rental income on a property. This could reduce their net returns at a time when void periods may be longer and rental growth lower as a result of a period of slower growth for the economy.Buying FTSE 100 stocks todayInvestors buying FTSE 100 stocks today could realistically outperform the index over the long run. Its annualised total return of over 8% since inception may be relatively impressive compared to other mainstream assets. But buying large-cap shares when they trade on low valuations could yield an even higher return for long-term investors. They may be able to take advantage of the recent market crash and benefit from a likely recovery.While this process is unlikely to take place at a fast pace, it could improve your portfolio returns in the coming years. And increase your chances of making a million. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

first_img Pinterest Facebook Pinterest Man charged with robbing 7-Eleven facing trial Previous articleOne killed in rollover in northwest OdessaNext articleDAILY OIL PRICE: April 17 admin Facebook Local NewsCrime A man charged with robbing money, beer and cigarettes from a 7-Eleven by knifepoint will face trial at the Ector County Courthouse Wednesday morning.Douglas Skaggs, 57, was first charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, last March, and was indicted by a grand jury in June. He will face trial at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the 244th District Court of Judge James Rush. Court records list Luis Chavez as his court-appointed attorney.Police were first called about the robbery last March at 7-Eleven, 4525 E. University Blvd. A probable cause affidavit stated that the 47-year-old store clerk Lori Pena told officers a suspect had walked into the store, placed a 12-pack of Budweiser beer on the counter and pulled out a knife.Skaggs then reportedly demanded the clerk give him the money out of the register, along with five packs of Marlboro Red 100s, the document detailed, stuffing the money down the right pocket of his pants before leaving.Video surveillance showed Skaggs driving away from the scene in a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup with a missing front bumper, the report stated, which was spotted by detectives about an hour after the robbery at 1101 E. 42nd St. There, Skaggs was detained and soon positively identified by the store clerk working at the time of the robbery.Jail records show Skaggs has remained in the Ector County Detention Center since first being arrested, and has three bonds totaling $225,000.Should Skaggs be found guilty of aggravated robbery, he could be sentenced anywhere from five to 99 years in prison.Skaggs is also facing a separate and unrelated charge accusing him of slamming his wife on the floor and strangling her to the point of unconsciousness during an argument three months prior to his arrest.Police charged Skaggs with assault by strangulation, a third-degree felony, and he has a pre-trial hearing scheduled for the charge on May 24 in the 244th District Court.

Dell Wyse ThinOS – PCoIP Connections to Major Cloud Providers

first_imgDownload and install the Teradici CAS host to set up your VM.Now, apply your license to turn on the agent and you are setup for connections.Checking out the connection to the remote desktop from ThinOS is quite simple. First, you define a remote connection by inputting the address of the target VM (or physical system) using the AWS connection type. It doesn’t matter if you are connecting to a physical workstation, Google Cloud, VMware Cloud, Azure or Amazon EC2 –the AWS broker type will work with any of those. In a future software release we will update the terminology so that it is clearer to users. Figure 1 below shows the panel where you make the connection. Note that if you are using the Cloud Access Manager (CAM) broker from Teradici versus a direct machine connection, the process will be the same.Figure 1 – AWS Broker ConnectionNext, the client will connect using https and you need to ensure the TLS version is set correctly as the client currently defaults to TLS 1.0 and the CAS host will reject the connection. The following INI configuration file entries should be placed on the ftp server for your client or if using Wyse Management Suite, set appropriately. I used the following for my Azure desktop connection.Now when you log in to your client you will get the following dialog as shown in Figure 2 and will be able to connect to your desktop:Figure 2 – Login DialogHere’s an important tip: If the virtual desktop is not joined to a domain, just put the machine name in the domain field and it will log in correctly.So that’s it – you should be up and running with one of the industry’s premier connection protocols accessing either physical desktops or virtual machines on any of the major cloud services all from the most secure and easily managed thin client platform available today.Enjoy!  And feel free to tweet at me regarding this post or any thoughts on future topics.Figure 3 – Dell Wyse 5070 with dual FHD monitors connected to an Azure desktop We recently received numerous requests and questions about using ThinOS to access cloud resources directly from the terminal environment using the Teradici Cloud Access Software (CAS) solution.For those not familiar with PC-over-IP (PCoIP), it delivers remote access to computers and virtual machines using a secure, high-definition and highly responsive connection protocol.  Given the level of interest we’ve received, I thought it would be a good idea to share what’s possible with this technology from a ThinOS based device along with some “how-to” tips and tricks to get things setup.Dell is proud of our long history of supporting Teradici-based clients. We have offered customers zero clients based on a hardware implementation of the PCoIP protocol, as well as software-based PCoIP clients with our ThinOS firmware solution. More recently, our ThinOS clients also support direct connection to Amazon Workspaces solution as of our 8.3 release launched back in 2016.Since then, Teradici has launched their All Access subscription plans that offer PCoIP connections to physical desktops, engineering workstations with Dell Tera2 PCoIP Remote Access Host Cards and powerful cloud hosted desktops from all of the major cloud providers. With the advent of NVIDIA GPU technology powering virtual workstations, there is almost no limit to the power available from these cloud providers!The PCoIP-enabled ThinOS client supports all of these connections today and the process to make a connection is quite simple. Since connecting to Amazon Workspaces is already covered in our documentation here, let’s focus on Teradici Cloud Access Software (CAS) connections.Provision a suitable desktop VM that you wish to connect with.You can purchase a license (or obtain a trial license) from Teradici.last_img read more
