Forget the Cash ISA! I’d buy the FTSE 100 today

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares After the Bank of England decided to slash interest rates last month, Cash ISA providers have rushed to follow suit. The highest flexible Cash ISA interest rate on the market at the moment is just 1.25%.If you are willing to lock your money up for a year or more, you can earn a better return, but not by much.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…The best one-year fixed Cash ISA offers an interest rate of just 1.35%. The best two-year Cash ISA provides a rate of 1.46%.With this being the case, if you are looking for a better return on your money, buying the FTSE 100 might be a better option.Cash ISA alternativeThe most significant benefit of opening a Cash ISA is its tax benefits. You never have to pay tax on income or capital gains earned on money held in an ISA. But that applies to Stocks and Shares ISAs too.However, the one primary drawback of using a Cash ISA over a Stocks and Shares ISA is a lack of flexibility.With a Cash ISA, you have to accept the interest rate offered by the ISA provider. With a Stocks and Shares ISA, you can shop around for better investments. In fact, you can own any investment as long as it is traded on a “recognised exchange.” That essentially means any stock or bond that’s traded on a developed market stock exchange.Having said that, picking stocks can be a challenging process. Even the professionals get it wrong regularly. Therefore, a better strategy might be to own the entire market.Indeed, investors who were savvy enough to buy a FTSE 100 tracker fund at the height of the financial crisis saw a return of 9% per annum on their money to the beginning of March.The other benefit the UK’s leading stock index offers is income. Even after the tidal wave of recent dividend cut announcements, the index still offers a dividend yield that’s more than double the 1.25% interest rate on the best Cash ISA on the market right now.When companies resume their cash return plans, it’s likely the index’s yield will rise significantly from current levels.The bottom lineSo overall, while owning a Cash ISA might seem like a safe option in the current market, from a long-term perspective, it might be a big financial mistake. Because inflation has averaged 2% per annum for the past few decades, a return of 1.25%, suggests that your money will earn a negative real interest rate. That implies your money will lose purchasing power over the long run.With this being the case, if you are serious about saving for the future, it could be best to look past the market’s near-term volatility and concentrate on the long-term wealth-creating power of the FTSE 100.

Rev. Mark S. Sisk, Bishop of New York, Bishop Coadjutor the Rt. Rev. Andrew M.L. Dietsche and Assistant Bishop the Rt. Rev. Andrew D. Smith issued the following joint statement today:At the six month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, we repeat our support for the principles of Occupy, and our conviction that the issues and challenges raised by this movement are in our opinion among the most important of our day. At our convention in January the Diocese of New York affirmed our commitment to these principles, and to the tradition of nonviolent civil disobedience as a means of putting the legitimate concerns of people of conscience before the public eye and before the powers of civil government.We understand that it is inevitable that where civil disobedience breaks law it will provoke a response by police and governmental leaders. That is not only inevitable, but is of the very fabric of civil disobedience. On March 17, there were demonstrations at Zuccotti Park to mark the anniversary of Occupy, and those demonstrations were cleared by the police. Allegations of excessive force by the police have been made. We remind all persons, and every elected official, and all officers of the New York City police, that a guaranteed recourse of people in a democracy to give voice to legitimate grievance is public demonstration. We ask the forbearance of elected officials. But when arrests are made, we call on every public official and officer of the law to exercise judgment and restraint, to honor the dignity of those they place in custody, and to remain committed to their safety and protection. The use of excessive force by police in any circumstance is destructive of the common life on which we all depend and the trust we must have in our institutions and one another, and when excessive force is used to silence the political voice it is destructive of democracy itself.We also write this at a time when lawmakers of this state are testifying in Albany to their own experiences and those of their constituents of the unfair, humiliating, and potentially dangerous practice known as Stop and Frisk. This is also written against the backdrop of the heartbreaking killing of Trayvon Martin by a private citizen operating under the protection of Florida’s wildly ill-conceived Stand Your Ground law. Laws and law enforcement practices which dehumanize, demean and debase; which deny and take life; and which are inherently racist, are ruinous to the freedom in which God intends us to live and contrary to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.The Baptismal Covenant of the Episcopal Church calls us to seek and serve Christ in all persons, and to respect the dignity of every human being. We commend these virtues, and the temperance, charity and nonviolence which flow from them, to the wider community and its government as well. We call on the elected officials of the City of New York to re-examine the laws and practices by which the officials our city protect its citizens and visitors, to end the biased and prejudicial practices of Stop and Frisk, and to commit to restraint, fairness and transparency in every encounter with the people of New York.+MarkThe Rt.

VC1 / Tisselli Studio Architetti

first_img Area:  827 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Architects: Tisselli Studio Architetti Area Area of this architecture project Text description provided by the architects. The architecture doesn’t limit itself to the planning fit but it ends with the realization of the work, and this happens not necessarily before facing the Administrations and the corporations standing around the building trial. The complexity of the relationships and the compromises that there can be at the beginning of an architectural production cannot however justify shortage of the planning commitment and/or the total subjugation to the businessmen and buyers requests: the system that goes from the planning to the realization of the work is always a “social action”, it is shared, and in there the responsibility of the architecture must be recognized, to all the levels and in every context. Save this picture!In this case, the project counted the realization of a building to residential destination inside a lot not built and not reached by public services like roads, illumination, sewerages, etc… Save this picture!plan 03There is an area of considerable dimensions to manage; inside this area it has been necessary to organize, laying down the Public Administration, the whole public works system that would have been then a service to the building: the access road to the building races along two sides of the quadrangular perimeter of the lot, conducting the cars to the area predisposed to open parking lot, and an ample green zone faces the residences. Everything is also in the service of a building with parking lot at the basement and that it develops out on three levels on earth: eight apartments fairly divided in the first two floors and only one apartment with garret of pertinence. Save this picture!Beyond a mere functional description of the intervention, action focus is still the wish to reinstate the architectural quality to the directional vertexes of the building intervention, refusing the homologation to the reassuring and anonymous morphology of the surrounding buildings. Save this picture!elevation 02The classical and consolidate residential functions can be found in a “box” which does not refuse the archetype of the parallelepiped volume, but even in the tension of the planning search it “lives” and rotates along a parallel axle to the ground almost lifting from earth the look of its more representative face. Save this picture!Cleanliness and compactness of the prospects are the aims always pursued and happily reached through the use of a simple and direct language, particularly evident in the formulation of the principal prospects: ample balconies extend themselves along the front whole length, but an single graphic sign coordinates the complexity of the system-prospect of the openings, synthesizing the single elements in an unique dominant motive, in the identification profile of the whole architectural body. Save this picture!The graphic element which the management of the prospects has been submitted to never makes the great rotated box less clear: the two-colour process of the plasters makes the white of the wrap jumping on the grey one of the behind surfaces, letting the intervention morphology underline the guidelines.Save this picture!elevation 01Project gallerySee allShow lessSerial Architecture – Systems of Multiplicities / Rocker-LangeArticlesAD Round Up: Wineries Part IIIArticlesProject locationAddress:Cesana, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

For this project Terry & Terry Architecture maintained certain portions of this original Victorian layout, including the compartmentalized front rooms and the wide hallway that contains the stairs and bathrooms and leads to the kitchen. As one moves to the rear of the house, traces of the original Victorian house dissolve. Terry & Terry Architecture designed the new structure at the rear of the house to be a series of interconnected, multi-functional open space for dining, cooking and common living. On the third floor, Terry & Terry Architecture added bedrooms/bathrooms, a large stair shaft, with a roof opening to allow light to reach the core of the house.

This allowed them to use glass as a membrane, blurring the distinction between the inner volumes of the house and the outdoor deck spaces. The moment frame also gave them greater freedom to manipulate the various volumes of the house. At each level, these volumes straddle the steel moment frame, and through their positioning, they provide shade and privacy to other indoor and outdoor spaces.

Roberts, Stabenow Announce Ag Trade Hearing

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 6, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleCanada, U.S. NAFTA Talks Appear to be ProgressingNext articleIndiana Harvest Weather Looks Wet Hoosier Ag Today The Senate Agriculture Committee will hold a trade hearing next week titled “Perspectives on U.S. Agricultural Trade.” Among those attending the hearing is Dr. Robert Johansson, the Chief Economist at the Department of Agriculture and mastermind behind the USDA trade mitigation package formulas. The hearing could serve as a chance for Congress to better understand how Johansson figured the payment values for corn and soybean crops, and others, as part of the trade mitigation package producers may now apply to receive payment.The payments to farmers are based on 2018 production levels that must be certified and provided to USDA. For soybeans, that’s $1.65 a bushel, for 50 percent of production. For corn, it’s a one cent per-bushel payment, for 50 percent of production. Corn producers have criticized the payments for favoring soybeans. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday morning. Also attending are Gregg Doud, Chief Agricultural Negotiator, and Ted McKinney, USDA undersecretary for trade and foreign agricultural affairs.Source: NAFB News Service Roberts, Stabenow Announce Ag Trade Hearing Home Indiana Agriculture News Roberts, Stabenow Announce Ag Trade Hearinglast_img read more

Waterworks Aquatics Grand Opening of Brand New Indoor Pool in Pasadena

first_imgFitness Waterworks Aquatics Grand Opening of Brand New Indoor Pool in Pasadena From STAFF REPORTS Published on Friday, May 3, 2013 | 5:07 pm Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Waterworks Aquatics, southern California’s number one Swim School and Aquatics Center, is proud to present itself to the City of Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley area with a newly built 15,000 square foot indoor swim facility. The company is scheduled to open its new state-of-the-art indoor swim facility on Wednesday, May 15th.They will hold their Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Thursday, May 23rd from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. The event will include complimentary snacks, and beverages. Waterworks Aquatics will also be opening up their two indoor pools for free swim and water activities for the entire family to enjoy.California is one of 10 states in which drowning is the leading cause of death for children under 15 years of age. In an effort to reduce this statistic and promote water safety, Waterworks Aquatics teaches more than 10,000 children to swim each year at its southern California locations. Their new Pasadena location will provide an additional venue where its successes can be shared in the Pasadena area by providing swimming lessons year round in a warm enclosed environment. Classes are offered in two pools, a lap pool heated to 89 degrees and the teaching pool heated to 92 degrees for children and adults ages three months and older.Waterworks Aquatics provides Private, Semi-Private, Parent and Me, Adult and Stroke Clinic swim classes. It will also offer youth swim teams, summer swim camps, lap swimming, water aerobics, and a venue for birthday parties as well as facilitating aquatic therapy.“The teaching methodology at Waterworks Aquatics is what differentiates us from other swim schools,” said JonAlpert, founder of Waterworks Aquatics. “We utilize an original instructional philosophy of teaching children to roll to their back for a breath rather than lifting their heads to breathe, which allows children as young as 18 months the capability to swim across the pool. The other key component is the use of a specialized muscle memory teaching technique, where students are taught stroke technique at a very young age. We provide small class sizes with individualized attention. We have had so much success with providing a warm environment along with fast progress.”With a commitment to “Learning it the Right Way, Right from the Beginning”, Waterworks Aquatics was voted the Best Swim School in Orange County in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 by the readers of Parenting OC Magazine.Waterworks Aquatics is running a grand opening special of 20% off swim lesson packages as well as up to 4 free additional lessons up until May 26, 2013.For more information or to register for classes, please visit www.waterworksswim.com/Pasadena or call (626) 836-1200.

Shock in hurling heartland of Patrickswell, as former club captain killed…

first_imgBilly Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Facebook Advertisement Poignantly, the hurling stalwart who captained ‘the Well’ on their 18th senior hurling title in 2003, was expecting his second child with his heartbroken wife Anna, a family source said.Family, friends, and neighbours, were rallying around Ms Carey, a native of the Philippines, and the couple’s young son Fionn, at their home in Patrickswell.The young couple had decided to relocate home from Dubai, where they had lived for the past eight years, in time for the Christmas period.Mr Carey, who was teaching English and Religion in Dubai, had been making last minute arrangements to finalise their full-time move back to Ireland.The tight-knit community was in deep shock as it tried to come to terms with the awful news, and family members were trying desperately to navigate their way through the latest guidelines on travel and repatriation in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.The family are in contact with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Irish Embassy in the United Arab Emirates.Colin Bell of the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust said the organisation was contacted by the family, and he pledged to provide any assistance necessary to expeditiously repatriate Mr Carey’s body home to Patrickswell for burial.The Dubai authorities have informed the family that Mr Carey died in a road traffic collision at a roundabout, however details remained sketchy as to how the fatal collision occurred.“Trying to get Paul home is the most important thing. Words can’t describe it, it’s your worst nightmare, especially when this happens overseas,” said the family source.“Obviously his family want to be there with him, even to formally identify his body, and have any questions they may have answered.”Paying tribute, they said: “Paul was a great guy who was full of life, he was a top class guy and loved by everybody, and a great roll model for his while family.”Mr Carey, one of ten siblings, lifted silverware with his beloved Patrickswell, captaining the side to their 18th senior title in 2003 – a day he starred alongside his brothers Ciaran and Kevin, and, his nephew Cian, who won an All-Ireland hurling medal for Limerick in 2018, appeared as the Patrickswell club mascot.He had also lined out for Limerick through the ranks, from underage to Under-21 to senior.“He loved Patrickswell, he was proud as punch of the place as were his community proud of him, he loved hurling, and he loved following Limerick’s successes, he was so looking forward to the Munster Final next weekend (November 15th), and he will be a huge loss to his family and to his community,” the source added.A local man, who did not wish to be named, said: “It’s terribly sad and so sudden, Paul was a tremendous hurler and contributor to the Patrickswell community, and he had been linked in with Limerick hurling panels at all grades.” A Department of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman said it was “aware” of the death of an Irish man in Dubai on Friday, and was “providing consular assistance” to his family in Limerick. Mr Carey, a brother of retired Limerick hurling legend Ciaran Carey, and an uncle to current Limerick hurling star Cian Lynch, would have celebrated his 42nd birthday in two weeks time.

We are also expanding relief available through our well-known forbearance programs, allowing us to reach the majority of affected borrowers as expeditiously as possible.”FHFA Director Mark Calabria discussed with CNBC how forbearance will impact the credit scores of borrowers.“If you’re in a forbearance plan and you’re meeting the terms of that plan, it will not be reported to your credit bureau, there will not be a ding on your credit,” Calabria said. “If you don’t reach out to your lender and get a plan and don’t pay, you will get hit.”Alongside the GSEs’ announcements, the House Financial Services Committee released plans for a legislative package to provide a comprehensive fiscal stimulus and public policy in response to the coronavirus pandemic.“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, we have seen the devastating effects on workers, consumers, investors, markets, and the economy,” said Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services. “Low income communities were already struggling before this crisis began and will likely be hit particularly hard by the coming recession. This is an urgent public health crisis that has quickly harmed our entire economy, and it demands swift and bold action. The Financial Services Committee will play a central role in that response.”The committee’s response includes at least $2,000 per month for all adults and $1,000 for each child, and a suspension on all consumer and small business credit payments and negative credit reporting, including mortgages.Shortly after the Financial Services Committee announced their plan, Committee Member Ben McAdams announced that he has been diagnosed with COVID-19.“I and my colleagues are all wishing Representative McAdams a speedy recovery and good health,” Chairwoman Waters said. “As a new Member of the Financial Services Committee this Congress, Representative McAdams is a tireless, hardworking advocate for Utahns, and it is no surprise that even now he is working from home to help his constituents.” Previous: Single-Family Homes are Shrinking Next: NMSA Proposes COVID-19 Response to Ensure Liquidity, Stability Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / Regulators and Lawmakers Accelerate Coronavirus Response Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more
