Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Saving in a Cash ISA has continued to be a popular means of building wealth, despite interest rates being at record lows for much of the past decade. By contrast, investing in FTSE 100 shares has failed to significantly gain in popularity, despite the strong returns recorded by the index over the same time period.Looking ahead, an investment in the FTSE 100 could have a much more positive impact on your retirement plans than saving in a Cash ISA. Therefore, now could be the right time to build a diverse portfolio of stocks that reduces your risk and provides significant return potential 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…Reward potentialThe FTSE 100 may have experienced a decade-long bull market, but its long-term performance track record is also highly attractive. Since it was formed in January 1984, the index has recorded an annualised total return of around 9%.It could go on to produce similar, or even higher, returns in the coming years owing to its attractive valuation at the present time. Many of its members currently have low valuations as a result of risks such as the spread of coronavirus, as well as geopolitical uncertainty in the US and Europe. Therefore, buying a range of stocks today could produce relatively high returns in the long run.A Cash ISA, meanwhile, may struggle to deliver improving returns in the coming years. Interest rates may remain low for a number of years due to ongoing economic risks facing the UK, as well as a low rate of inflation. Therefore, holding cash could prove to be a disappointing move in terms of its return potential, unlikely to have a significant positive impact on your retirement plans.Possible risksOne of the main advantages of a Cash ISA compared to FTSE 100 shares is its lower risks. As long as you hold less than £85,000 at a specific banking group, your capital is covered under a compensation scheme.The same, of course, cannot be said about FTSE 100 shares. The risk of loss can be high – especially during periods of economic turbulence, and it’s not uncommon for investors to experience paper losses on their investments.However, the risks of investing in shares can be reduced significantly through diversification. Holding a variety of companies which operate in different geographies and sectors can limit your dependence on a specific stock, and may mean losses from one company are offset by gains made elsewhere in your portfolio.Certainly, the risk of the wider stock market falling cannot be diversified away. But the return potential of the FTSE 100 means that, for those people who have a long time horizon until they plan to retire, buying shares could be a superior move compared to having a Cash ISA.

They may also think that they do not earn enough money to start investing in the stock market.But even if you only have a few pounds to spare every week, you can invest, and your money could grow with compound interest over time to a surprisingly large amount. Many robust stocks are still down from their early 2020 highs, presenting good potential opportunities for long-term investors.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 sharesFirst a bit of terminology for those who are just getting interested in the stock market. London has always sat at the centre of international financial markets and attracted companies to list there. The London Stock Exchange (LSE) is the primary stock exchange in the UK and the largest in Europe.As described on the LSE website, the “FTSE (pronounced Footsie) Group is an independent organisation jointly owned by the Financial Times and the London Stock Exchange.” It has several indexes of shares covering not only the UK but also other global markets.The most famous index in the UK is the FTSE 100 which began in 1984. Most companies are multinational conglomerates. The FTSE 250 index consists of the 101st to the 350th largest companies listed on the LSE. It was launched in 1992. Companies in it usually have a more domestic focus so they are more directly affected by shorter-term developments in the UK economy. Performance of the indexesMy Motley Fool colleagues regularly point out that over the long run, the stock market returns about 6% to 8% annually, on average. Over the past year, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indexes are down about 19% and 17.5% respectively. On the other hand, if we had done this calculation in early January 2020, the indexes would have been up around 12% and 25% respectively, over the previous 12 months.These increases (or decreases) in the index levels do not include the dividend payments made to shareholders. Average dividend yields for the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 are about 4.1% and 2.9% respectively.While past performance may not exactly repeat in the months ahead, the track records of both indexes over many years highlight their growth potential. Time is on your sideLet’s assume that you are now 25 years old with £5,000 in savings and that you plan to retire at age 65.You decide to invest that £5,000 in a fund now and make an additional £4,000 of contributions annually at the start of the year. You have 40 years to invest. The annual return is 6%, compounded once a year. At the end of 40 years, the total amount saved becomes £707,620. Saving £4,000 a year would mean being able to put aside around £333 a month or about £11 a day. Might you just be wondering if you should skip that next impulse purchase?If you could increase your annual contributions to £5,000, then the total would be £871,667.What I’d invest inMaking the right investment decisions in stock markets is not necessarily about constantly picking winning shares and funds, buying cheap and selling fast when the price rises. Rather it is about having a long-term strategy. There are several companies I’d consider buying, especially if there is any weakness in their share prices in the coming weeks. In the FTSE 100, they include AstraZeneca, Bunzl, Mondi, and Severn Trent.In the FTSE 250, I like Britvic, Direct Line, and Softcat as potential long-term investments.

Presiding Bishop, in House of Bishops sermon, promotes voting, Christian…


first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches at the opening of the Sept. 16 meeting of the House of Bishops on Zoom.[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, in an opening sermon for the Sept. 16 online meeting of the House of Bishops, urged Episcopalians to vote in the upcoming elections and to “encourage others to vote as their conscience leads them.” And he affirmed that The Episcopal Church’s positions on political issues, though nonpartisan, should not be confused with “moral neutrality.”“The vote is so sacred and important for all people, regardless of your religious tradition or your politics or your nationality,” Curry said in prerecorded remarks, delivered during a Zoom meeting. “The vote, as an act of moral humanity, is so important that people have given their lives for it.”The sermon also was released later in the day as a “word to the church.” In it, he cited Scripture to discuss what Jesus did during his time that can guide his 21st-century followers to bear witness in today’s world. Those teachings are especially relevant, Curry said, during the ongoing pandemic and this “time of great divisions.”“Divisions that are deep, dangerous and potentially injurious to democracy,” Curry added. “What is the role of the church in the context of an election being held in a time such as this? What is our role as individual followers of Jesus Christ committed to his way of love in such a time as this?”A variety of resources on civic engagement are available from the Office of Government Relations.Inflamed racial divisions and widespread protests against racial injustice this year have shaped both the dynamic of the presidential campaign and much of the bishops’ recent work in their dioceses and with each other. The bishops’ Sept. 16 meeting built on the theme of racial reconciliation that was discussed at length during their last official meeting in late July. That meeting also was held on Zoom due to the inability to meet in person while COVID-19 is still spreading widely.Much of the latest House of Bishops meeting was conducted privately so the bishops could discuss and reflect on the latest draft of a report by the bishops’ Theology Committee titled, “Reflection on White Supremacy, the Beloved Community and Learning to Listen.” During the first part of the meeting, which was open to reporters, several members of the committee introduced the report by describing their personal experiences with racism.“I have to confess, I am so weary … because we have been doing this work for so long and there is so much more to do,” said Indianapolis Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, who in 2017 became the first Black woman to serve as a diocesan bishop. Since then, several more dioceses have elected Black women and other people of color as bishops, though the body is still overwhelmingly white and male.Baskerville-Burrows spoke of the powerful inspiration she felt as a layperson and then a priest whenever the House of Bishops spoke out against racism in its pastoral letters, notably in a 1994 message that condemned racism as a sin. She described the bishops’ work today as a continuation of that hard work.New York Bishop Suffragan Allen Shin noted that racism in America often is seen as binary, a matter of white and black, but as a South Korean immigrant who has called the United States home for nearly 50 years, he sees racism as a more “complicated issue.”“Asian Americans are constantly seen and see themselves as outsiders,” Shin said, and that xenophobia has only intensified during the coronavirus pandemic. Shin grew emotional as he described the fear he and other Asian Americans feel at being made scapegoats for the virus. “There are days when I’m actually afraid to go outside because I don’t know what will happen, just because of what I look like.”Several bishops on the committee shared how they grew to realize how their privilege as white Americans had blinded them for much of their lives to the reality of the experiences and perspectives of many of their fellow citizens.Arkansas Bishop Larry Benfield described himself as a “white Southern male bishop” and confessed that he had long thought that making the church a more hospitable place by welcoming people of all colors was enough to bring new diversity after centuries of predominantly white membership. While reexamining such beliefs through discussions with the Theology Committee, he began to understand the patronizing presumptions of that way of thinking.“The truth of the matter is, the offer of acceptance by white people is a way to keep others still feeling second-class, and it keeps us white people feeling so virtuous about how progressive we are,” Benfield said. “I’m now finding myself in the uncomfortable place of having to ask myself why any person of color … would want to be accepted by white people in a very white church.”The Theology Committee’s report was not available to review for this story, and it wasn’t immediately clear when the House of Bishops would release an official draft.Curry lamented the unyielding pain of racism during his opening sermon, warning that the problem transcends any one election.“The wounds and the divisions in American society are so deep that even an election by itself cannot heal them,” he said. “The murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many others has exposed the death-dealing depth of racism and white supremacy deeply embedded in the soil and in the soul of America. We can’t go on like this.”Curry also drew the bishops’ attention to a series of resources compiled by The Episcopal Church’s Washington-based Office of Government Relations and other church agencies. The resources cover a range of topics, from promoting civil discourse to responding to racist violence. Many of the resources can be found at the Office of Government Relations’ civic engagement webpage.“I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ because I believe he has shown us that better way. I believe that the way of unselfish, sacrificial love can show us the way of repentance, the way to repair the breach,” Curry said. “This is long-distance work. There are no quick fixes because the wounds are so deep, but we need not feel enslaved by fate.”Curry concluded with the story of a 2016 incident between a Donald Trump supporter and a protester outside one of the then-candidate’s rallies in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The 79-year-old Trump supporter, John McGraw, punched the protester, Rakeem Jones, and McGraw was arrested and charged with assault.Months later, McGraw pleaded no contest and was sentenced to a year of probation. Afterward, he faced Jones and the two shook hands. “We are caught up in a political mess today, you and me; we’ve got to heal our country,” McGraw told Jones, and at Jones’ request, the two later had lunch together.“They went to lunch together,” Curry said. “We can, we will, we must learn to eat at that welcoming table. Jesus has shown us the way. It is the way of unselfish, sacrificial love. And that way can make room for us all.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

AAA warns the risk remains high for hot car deaths

Parents urged to be cautious as the pandemic changes routinesFrom AAAAs summer temperatures reach scorching highs, the inside of a hot car can become a death trap for children. Even though the COVID-19 pandemic may cause people to drive less and work from home more, AAA says the risk of hot car deaths remains high.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Heatstroke is one of the leading causes of vehicular not-in-traffic non-crash-related deaths for children under 14. Since 1998, an average of 39 children have died every year from heatstroke.The majority of hot car deaths (54%) happen because someone forgets a child in a car. This often occurs when parents or caregivers forget to drop their child off at daycare, because they become distracted or are off their routine.However, these horrific tragedies do not just happen when a child is forgotten. The second leading cause (25%) of vehicular heatstroke deaths are when children get into unattended vehicles, either through an unlocked door or the trunk.In 2018, there were a record setting 53 hot car deaths. Last year, there were 52. Earlier this year, a 4-year-old died of heat stroke after he left the home and climbed into the unoccupied vehicle, without his family noticing.“With so much more time being spent at home, due to the pandemic, AAA urges families to educate their children about the dangers of hot cars, and take necessary precautions to prevent a tragedy like this from happening,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group.Tips for Keeping Kids Out of CarsGet in the habit of always locking your car doors and trunk, year-round.Never let children play in an unattended vehicle. Teach them a vehicle is not a play area.Keep car keys out of a child’s reach.If a child is missing, quickly check all vehicles, including the trunk.Knowingly leaving a child is the third leading cause of vehicular heatstroke deaths. Never leave a child alone in a parked car, even with the windows rolled down or the air conditioning on. A child’s body temperature can rise three to five times faster than adults. When the body’s temperature reaches 104 degrees, the internal organs begin to shut down.Tips for DriversSet an alarm on your phone to go off around the time you usually arrive to work to remind you to check the back seat.Arrange for day care or school to check in if your child doesn’t show up as expected.Leave your purse, phone or diaper bag in the back seat as a visual cue to check for your child before exiting.Keep a stuffed animal in your child’s car seat. When the child is with you, move it to the front seat as a reminder that your child is in the back.Place a reminder sticker on your windshield, dashboard or driver’s side window —wherever you’ll notice it—to remind yourself.Remove your kids from the car first and then worry about getting everything else out.If you see a child or pet alone in the car, call 911 immediately and follow the instructions of emergency personnel. In some states, laws will protect citizens if they break into a vehicle to save a person or animal.The Auto Club Group (ACG) is the second largest AAA club in North America with more than 14 million members across 14 U.S. states, the province of Quebec and two U.S. territories. ACG and its affiliates provide members with roadside assistance, insurance products, banking and financial services, travel offerings and more. ACG belongs to the national AAA federation with more than 60 million members in the United States and Canada. AAA’s mission is to protect and advance freedom of mobility and improve traffic safety.  The Anatomy of Fear last_img read more


Sneaky England trainer at halftime


first_imgThursday Oct 18, 2007 Sneaky England trainer at halftime This is a pretty funny clip. It points out how the English trainer listened in on Wallaby hooker Stephen Moore’s conversation with referee Alain Rolland (not Kaplan as the analyst says in the clip) at half-time.The trainer not only listened to what they were talking about, but made an effort to have it transmitted to the rest of the England staff, and more importantly, coach Brian Ashton.Now, I doubt Moore and the Rolland were plotting a plan to stop Wilkinson from getting his drop goals over, or discussing tactics that could have changed the game, but it’s still pretty funny to see the England trainer getting in so close and being able to eavesdrop on the conversation.Who knows, maybe he did learn something from it and that contributed to England’s dominance in the scrums? You never know. Still, pretty comical.

Taking its inspiration from the Soho Cast Iron Historic District in which it is located, the building is cloaked in a custom cast aluminum façade that seems to float over a hanging glass wall.The striking design was slowly conceived of through DDG’s extensive survey and research of the neighborhood – in which it found 250 cast iron loft buildings. XOCO 325’s façade derived from the designers’ fascination with the historic buildings’ “kit of parts” industrialization and its reliance upon componentry and patterns. To celebrate this style of architecture, yet modernize it for the 21st century, DDG opted to replicate the bay spacing found in the area, use cast aluminum as it is lighter and more affordable, and hang the custom structure over a massive glass wall, in order to maintain a sense of privacy for residents. Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteProject gallerySee allShow lessThe World’s Most Instagrammed Cities and Architecture of 2016Architecture NewsCall for Submissions: 2016 Holiday Card ChallengeArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:SoHo, New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.
