While further falls could be ahead over the coming weeks and months, the stock market could offer long-term recovery potential.Many of the index’s members trade at valuations that are significantly lower than their historic averages. Buying them in a Stocks and Shares ISA today, and holding them over the long run, could increase your chances of making a million.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…FTSE 100 recovery prospectsThe FTSE 100 may have recorded a sharp fall in its price level since the start of the year, but its past performance is relatively impressive. Since inception, it has recorded an annualised total return of around 7%. However, its performance in the coming years could be even more attractive. That is because it is starting from a price level that suggests it is undervalued at the present time.Across a wide range of industries, investors are pricing in a prolonged period of economic uncertainty. In some cases this may be deserved. Some industries do face highly challenging operating conditions. But the performance of some businesses may be relatively robust. And their valuations could be suffering from weak investor sentiment towards the wider stock market.Since the FTSE 100 has always recovered from its variety of bear markets and downturns in the past to post new record highs, it looks likely to deliver the same outcome following its recent market crash. It has already started to move upwards in recent weeks. As such, its total returns in the coming years could be above its historic average, as many of its members currently trade at discounts to their intrinsic values.Making a millionOf course, making a million from buying stocks is never an easy or quick process. However, it is possible to generate a seven-figure portfolio in the long run.For example, assuming a 7% annual total return for the FTSE 100 over a 35-year time period would produce a £1m portfolio for someone who invests £600 per month. Clearly, not everyone can afford to invest that amount each month, but even a lesser amount could still produce a sizeable nest egg over the long run.Moreover, with the FTSE 100 currently containing many stocks that appear to offer good value for money, its returns over the coming years could be in excess of the index’s historic 7% per annum. As such, you may be able to generate a £1m portfolio sooner than in the above example.Stocks and Shares ISAInvesting through a Stocks and Shares ISA could further improve your chances of generating a seven-figure portfolio. Amounts invested through an ISA are tax-free, while withdrawals can be made at any time without paying any tax. This could make budgeting easier in retirement, and improve your sense of financial freedom over the long run. Image source: Getty Images.

That news came Tuesday, as the high street chain revealed its latest trading update. The Marks & Spencer share price fell 5% in early trading, as the firm told us that clothing and home sales in its stores are “well below” 2019’s levels.The M&S share price is now down 48% since the start of this year, compared to the 19% drop for the FTSE 100. But when we look back to the 77% slide over the past five years, the 2020 crash starts to look a bit like business as usual. I can’t help thinking the pandemic slump might really just be hastening the inevitable.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…If you have your optimistic head on right now, you might see this as a good thing. It is, after all, painful to see a company’s attraction slowly but inexorably dwindling in its traditional markets. And accelerating the end of that misery might just be a good thing, helping to move M&S further towards its growing food business a bit more quickly.It might be an obvious truism, but the Marks & Spencer share price is not going to turn bullish until it’s passed its bottom. And that’s where countless investors, for decades, have been too impatient and have come unstuck.Turning to strengthOn the food front, things appear to be going quite a bit better. M&S tells us that “food sales have built steadily from the shifts in demand and closure of travel locations at the outset of the crisis.” In 13 weeks, food sales have risen 2.5%.The company’s move to taking over the Ocado supply agreement is also on track for September. The change will lead to “the launch of over 500 new products in M&S stores” from the resulting expanded online range. Online sales volumes are booming, but it’s hard to determine any long-term trends from lockdown trading figures.What will M&S look like when it finally emerges into some form of new stability? And where will the M&S share price settle before we can look for future growth? Right now, we can only guess. Addressing the future streamlining of the business, the firm told us that “it is too early to predict with precision where a new post-Covid sales mix will settle.”M&S share price futureThat’s not surprising news, but I think it is key, both to the future of Marks & Spencer itself, and to the future of the retail trade in general. We are partway through a fundamental shift in the way we buy and sell stuff. And a lot of retailers have been struggling for years with the online shift.The pandemic has surely just accelerated this change. Companies that sit tight and wait to see what happens could well end up being left behind. While those at the forefront of the new realignment should be the ones to prosper. I’m just not convinced I see M&S in that second group yet. I like the look of some retail stocks, even today. But the Marks & Spencer share price does not attract me.

Set in the very best walking area of the beautiful North Pennines, just a short walk from the famous High Force Waterfall, this stunning chapel conversion with its historic building fabric and modern interior design is a real Teesdale jewel.The original windows of the nineteenth century building have been reopened, framing dramatic views of the dales to create a spacious and luxurious self-catering holiday cottage for seven guests. It has a large and fully equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, four comfortable bedrooms, two en-suits and a luxurious family bathroom. The reconstruction, designed by Swiss award-winning architects Evolution Design, has just recently been finished.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignHistoric features given immediate care.As the existing building was in a poor state of disrepair and had been vacant for many years, the aim of the reconstruction project was to bring this unique property back to life and to enable visitors to appreciate the history and local architecture while providing a beautiful environment to explore the surround countryside and its vast range of activities.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignThe property had sustained considerable water ingress due to its state of dereliction and not being maintained. Due to its exposed location, strong winds and driving rain, most of the interior finishes had been damaged badly, besides the main roof had deteriorated badly and the roof rafters required replacement.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignBefore any scheme or design had been drafted, the first tasks were instructing preliminary repairs for the damaged roof and board the windows and doors to prevent any further water damage. Once this had been completed the project team evaluated the available space to establish the type and quantity of facilities that would suit best the size and location of the Chapel.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignRetain the stunning essence of the Chapel.Being located in a remote location without any communications, installing services and sewage treatment was one of the very first tasks to bring this old Chapel back to life and to allow for the conversion of this historic building into a holiday accommodation.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignThe initial brief was to provide three guest bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen / dining area and a living room on the ground floor. However, it was soon clear it would reduce the space, therefore a mezzanine floor was proposed. “One of the main elements of the Chapel is the Gothic style arched windows that elegantly frame the beautiful views and allow the space to fill with light. Before the mezzanine floor could be considered we had to ensure that the new ceiling line would not obstruct any of the windows,” says designer Paul King.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignThe new mezzanine floor allowed for planning of three bedrooms upstairs and the kitchen / dining area, the living room, the bathroom and the fourth bedroom on the ground floor. “Our approach was to provide solutions that answered the brief, but did not alter the historic details or essence of the Chapel. The main hall was the core element that gives the Chapel its feel of space and with its detailed simplicity it became the heart of the proposed design,” says Paul King.Once the new level had been installed, all new bespoke timber frame windows and shutters were installed to complement the unique style and details of the Chapel.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignInterior designed to complement the character of the building.Modern, stylish and yet in the context of the location and its history – these were the main criteria for designing the interior of the new holiday cottage. “We wanted to create a space that was modern and yet had a traditional language that would complement the historic nature of the Chapel and appeal to a wide range of guests. This was reflected in our choice of furniture and finishes,” explains designer Paul King. “All materials and design had been considered in the context of the character and appearance of the existing building and the Teesdale vernacular. Traditional materials were proposed to ensure the scheme respects the character of the landscape and the existing buildings.”Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignAs the heart of any home the kitchen and dining space was intended to be open and bright, taking advantage of the Gothic windows and the beautiful views of the surround landscape. The aim was to keep a traditional feel by retaining the roof trusses with a natural finish. The kitchen units were styled to keep a homely rural feel, which is framed by the feature wall tiles. By using traditional tiles to cover the full height of the back wall complemented the generous ceiling height and feeling of space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Evolution DesignModern and comfortable holiday cottage for 7 guests.Being located in the very heart of the Upper Teesdale, the Chapel is a perfect location for unforgettable holidays spent walking, cycling, climbing, fishing or just relaxing with a book and a glass of wine in front of the log burner.

But ask this same friend about their favorite kabob house and they will joyously support you with an answer.The history of the kebab is teeming with adventure. This skewer of meat is commonly traced back to Persia or Pre-Ottoman Turkey and as this culinary invention spread across the globe it began to marry with the cultures it encountered. The Greeks added vegetables to the kebab, Pakistan and the countries of Southeastern Asian modified the kebab in the spicy flavors that versed their other meals. Indonesians decided to make satay their national dish, which is nothing more than a kebab by another name. When Americans encountered this globetrotting delicacy they adored it so much they increased the size of the meat on each skewer.The kebab is the dish of the common man and the king. The history of the kebab probably goes back to the time of Adam and Eve. In the same way we discover music in every culture, whether that civilization is of the primitive past or professed as advanced. But I find it more difficult to believe that we call ourselves developed we are the ones who enthusiastically devour hotdogs on a stick and those so-called primitively ancient cultures were feasting on fresh killed animal meat. I’m persuaded to feel that this method of cooking was almost spirituall in the way it burst to life around the world.If all this history is making you hungry I have an answer for that as well.Sahara Restaurant in Central Pasadena is one of my favorite spots for sit-down and takeout. I probably eat Sahara at three times a month and that is more than I cook at home. The dining room is simple and the walls hang with pictures of Lebanon. A loving shrine to Garo’s father and the country he still loves. Sahara is named after his father’s restaurant in Lebanon and Garo’s promised his son Sebastian that if they were ever made it to America their restaurant would be have the same name in his honor. Sahara opened its doors in 1993, exploring Old Town Pasadena before settling in Central Pasadena. As far as the recipes for the restaurant they are all reside in Garo’s head and like his father before him, Garo’s will one day entrust the secrets to his son, Sebastian, but not yet.The kitchen is open and this allows you to savor your meal before you take a single bite. The menu includes a list of kebabs and one of my favorites is the Lulu, ground-seasoned lamb with beef ($11.25). If it’s your first go at this oasis order the Combination ($14.75) as it offers a little of everything. For the vegetarians in the group the falafel ($8.25) sandwich is available. All the dishes arrive with feta cheese, pita bread, cucumber, and hummus, though I always ask nicely for a substitution of babaghanouj (eggplant) it’s the real deal, and your choice of lentil soup or my favorite the cabbage salad. Often I’ll save the cabbage salad for a later snack, it’s that good.Two enthusiastic thumbs up for Sahara!
