How truly beautiful it is to see people helping one another and lifting each other up without any kind of selfish intentions. Especially during such difficult times as the ones we’re currently living through.
A few days ago, a 51-year-old man named Edmund O’Leary went on Twitter and decided to break his silence by sharing his mental health struggles and asking others for emotional support. His post was short and simple. “I am not ok. Feeling rock bottom. Please take a few seconds to say hello if you see this tweet. Thank you,” it read. Little did he know that over 300k people from all around the world were about to stop everything they were doing to flood him with thousands of spirit-lifting messages.

“I was feeling very depressed, feeling rock bottom. I’m having an absolutely horrible year. I thought I’d give it a go,” the man told the BBC

Within a few minutes, people from all around the globe started sending him supportive messages, saying hi, sharing their own stories, and posting adorable photos of their pets to make the man feel at least a tiny bit better.
Many people deeply related to the way Edmund was feeling and decided to share their own struggles

“The whole experience has been absolutely surreal and provides me with a lot of hope. I’ve gone from feeling like a nobody to feeling like a somebody,” Edmund told BBC Breakfast. “To have that happen overnight is just surreal, something that most ordinary people have never experienced or will never experience.”

Radhika Apte reveals real reason why she got married

The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.
Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
