Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 14th March, 2020 I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

How I plan to build a £1m ISA account Trying to save £1m in an ISA account might seem like an unrealistic target at first, but it’s possible. All you need is patience and a disciplined savings plan.The £1m ISA accountWhen the government decided to increase the annual ISA account allowance from £15,240 to £20,000 in April 2017, it became a lot easier to build a £1m ISA.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…It would have taken more than 66 years of saving under the old regime to hit this target. That’s excluding any interest earned on funds deposited. By comparison, if a saver maxed out their £20,000 ISA account limit every year, it would take 50 years to reach the £1m level.If these figures make one thing clear, it’s that getting started as soon as possible is vital if you’re serious about building a £1m ISA account.Invest your moneyWith a savings plan in place, the next step is to start investing your money. Investing is one of the easiest ways to grow your ISA account over the long run. Thanks to the power of compound interest, it’s easy to build a relatively small monthly contribution into a sizeable financial nest egg using this strategy.For example, since 1983, the total return of the FTSE All-Share Index is around 9%. At this rate of return, an investment of just £100 a month would grow to be worth £1m within 48 years.The more you can put away, the faster you can hit this target. With a monthly deposit of £500, it would be possible to hit the £1m mark in 31 years.And if you make the most of your ISA account allowance every year, it would take just 19 years to make a million. That’s assuming an average annual rate of return of 9%.Look to the long termThe best way to replicate this investment performance is to buy a low-cost FTSE All-Share tracker fund. Most online stock brokers let you invest in one of these funds every month from as little as £50.A tracker fund is a much better option than picking individual stocks because this can be a time-consuming process. It’s also costly if you get it wrong. A significant investment loss can mean years of extra saving is required to make up for the cost.What’s more, why it’s almost impossible to tell what the future holds for individual stocks, over the long term, it’s highly likely that the stock market will continue to rise. As long as the global economy continues to expand, the stock market should track economic growth.That’s good news for investors who are willing to buy, hold, and increase their investments regularly. Indeed, trying to pick the perfect time to buy and sell stocks is nowhere near as important as the length of time you own investments.That’s the simple strategy I plan to use to build a £1m ISA account.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Christmas Message from Jerusalem Archbishop Suheil Dawani

first_img Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Belleville, IL Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Featured Events Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Comments (1) [The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East] My dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,In this period of Advent, we wait expectantly for the joy and peace that we celebrate with the coming of Christ. We wait in the knowledge that God as Emmanuel is already alongside us, within us, and encircling us, as we journey together on our pilgrimage through life. Sadly, we, as one human race, encounter suffering on a daily basis; suffering manifesting itself in deplorable acts of hatred within communities, between nations, and between neighbours; and suffering that we experience through loss and pain as human beings in a broken world.It is this pain that calls us as Christians to prayer, and to fall to our knees before the infant Christ. We cry out for change in our world, for nations to act towards other nations as friends; for neighbours to reach out to neighbors as sisters and brothers; and for a whole community that cares, respects and responds to the needs of the other, particularly to the needs of the vulnerable and the marginalized. We are reminded that in Christ’s commandment that we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our mind, all our strength and all our soul, and that we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, that the change we pray for in our communities must start with a change from within ourselves. We know that we must always seek, however hard it may be, to become people who love our neighbours more deeply, revering them as an embodiment of Jesus Christ.As I write to you from Jerusalem, I am more aware that again we are in a time of uncertainty, conflict and fear across the Middle East. Families and individuals this Christmas will again be concerned and worried about the future; yearning for signs of light and hope. As conflict continues in Syria and Yemen; as acts of terror are perpetrated in Egypt and Iraq; as millions flee their homes, as people suffer the world over, we are called back to that simple faith revealed in the mystery of the Christmas story.Into this broken world we believe was born Hope and Love, revealed to us not in a grand palace surrounded by the trappings of power and prestige, but revealed to us in a lowly manger, surrounded by people of simplicity – shepherds – with Mary as his mother, a woman of immeasurable courage and strength. The incarnate one – Christ – came to us, to give us faith that God is with us whatever we face, that God will comfort and heal us and lead us into new pastures.I am always confident and inspired by what we as Christians have the capacity to do. Those who travel to our Province that they learn so much through our witness, and through our mission, how to live faithful Christian lives. We may be small in number but Christ’s love in our hearts gives us a tenacity in our ministry to transform the lives of those we come into contact with and support, whether that be in our congregations, schools, hospitals and other institutions, or in our ministry to those outcasts of society. I want to thank all of you who are involved in building God’s Kingdom on earth, reconciling communities and being the salt and light in this world. I want to encourage you in the task at hand, and pray God’s Holy Spirit comforts and strengthens you in all you do.Let us be inspired by the shepherds, who, casting off fear, rushed to see Jesus, and returned praising and glorifying God. Let us worship God, and through him, be his hands and feet in this world. I wish you all a very blessed advent, happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.Grace and Peace.The Most Rev.

Voluntary income down at Concern UK

first_imgVoluntary income down at Concern UK Concern Worldwide in the UK saw its overall income increase in 2014 but its voluntary income fell by nearly 9%, according to the development charity’s latest accounts.Total income was £23.5 million, against £17.8 million in 2013. The increase was due to a big jump in income from £6.7 million to £13.7 million in 2014 from the UK Department for International Development. Voluntary income, however, fell from £10.7 million in 2013 to £9.7 million in 2014.Concern Worldwide’s main voluntary income source, committed giving, held up well in 2014 at £3.7 million, largely the same as in 2013. Public appeals and events, was slightly down at £2.4 million, from £2.5 million the previous year while trusts, corporates and major donors increased from £1.3 million to £1.7 million.Legacy income for 2014 was down nearly a third at £600,000 but the big drop in income came from the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) which was just under £1 million, from £1.9 million in 2013. DEC is a joint appeal on behalf of a number of charities, usually in response to a major disaster in the world.Fundraising costs in 2014 were £3.3 million, from £3 million the previous year. The biggest fundraising cost was for public appeals and events at £1.6 million while committed giving cost £1.3 million, up from a £1 million in 2013. Trusts, corporates and major donors appears to be Concern’s most efficient fundraising scheme at a cost of £400,000.  87 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Cancer Research UK Finance Northern Ireland  88 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Letter to President Uribe about comments endangering journalist

We remind you that you denounced Carlos Lozano, the editor of the weekly Voz, in a similar manner on Caracol Radio on 23 February. You called him the “spokesman” of a guerrilla group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), although he, too, was being threatened by paramilitaries and rightly feared for his life. Such comments are dangerous.TV personality Virginia Vallejo, a former mistress of Pablo Escobar, the Medellín cartel chief killed in 1993, wrote in her newly-published memoir “Amando a Pablo, odiando a Escobar” (Loving Pablo, hating Escobar), of your “friendship” with him when you were Medellín mayor and governor of Antioquia department. As civil aviation chief from 1981 to 1983, you allegedly granted Medellín drug traffickers licences to build landing strips and operate small carriers. A US Defence Intelligence Agency document from 1991 that was published by Newsweek in 2004 supported this claims although it said “without final verification.”You have of course the right to defend yourself. Passages from the book were quoted during the public TV station Canal Uno’s news programme “Noticias Uno” on 30 September. The Casa de Nariño, the presidential palace, posted a denial on its website the next day. After that was done, what need did you have to smear Guillén and accuse him of helping Vallejo to write the book in an interview on 2 October for the two leading privately-owned radio stations Caracol Radio and RCN?Guillén did write a story in July 2006 headlined “Pablo Escobar’s secrets” that was based on what Vallejo told him. He also raised questions about your past in a 2002 article about the Ochoa clan, a branch of the Medellín cartel. Are your accusations against him motivated by a desire for revenge? As president you should have responded on the substance of the allegations made against you.Guillén told W Radio on 2 October that he had nothing to do with Vallejo’s book and had not even read it. He plans to sue you for slander. In the meantime, he has had no choice but to leave the country.A journalist’s forced departure is a setback for press freedom and this is why your comments have done great harm.I thank you in advance for giving this letter your careful attention.Sincerely,Robert Ménard Secretary-General ColombiaAmericas Reports News Help by sharing this information RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Follow the news on Colombia RSF_en El Nuevo Herald’s Colombia correspondent, Gonzalo Guillén, has had to flee the country after President Alvaro Uribe accused him of helping to write a memoir that says Uribe was the friend of a leading drug trafficker.

Tamil newspaper’s proof reader missing in Jaffna

first_img November 22, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Tamil newspaper’s proof reader missing in Jaffna Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists News RSF_en Organisation Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about the fate of proof reader Vadivel Nimalarajah of the Jaffna-based Tamil daily Uthayan, who has been missing since 17 November. His colleagues think he was kidnapped near the Navalar Road railway as he was cycling home after a night shift as copy editor at the newspaper.”We urge the authorities to do everything possible to find Vadivel Nimalarajah,” the press freedom organisation said. “We fear he may have been abducted like other Tamil journalists, in the past. This incident highlights the terrible plight of journalists in Jaffna.”Another Jaffna journalist, Yarl Thinakural correspondent Subramaniam Ramachandran, went missing in February after writing a report implicating a businessman and military officers in illegal trafficking in sand.Uthayan’s management thinks that Nimalarajah, 31, is being held at the headquarters of a paramilitary group in Jaffna and that his life could be saved if he government intervened quickly.Uthayan is very critical of the government and has been targeted by the EPDP, a pro-government militia. Four of its employees have been killed and its premises attacked several times in the past two years.

Clonlara woman accused of harassing neighbours

first_imgNewsLocal NewsClonlara woman accused of harassing neighboursBy admin – June 2, 2011 1722 Linkedin Advertisement IN EXCESS of a 100 residents from the village of Clonlara were present at Limerick District Court ready to give evidence against a HSE official who, it was alleged, had been harassing her neighbours for several years. Lavinia O’Shea, 44, from Lisduff, Clonlara, was before the court answering summonses and one public order charge after her neighbours sought to bring actions against her for her conduct. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Seven summonses relating to breaches of the peace, and one charge under section 6 of the Public Order Act, were put to the accused woman after gardai received several complaints relating to incidents in the county Clare village in 2010. Aidan Judge, prosecuting State solicitor, told the court that Lavinia O’Shea, in 2010 and for years before, was harassing her neighbours, besetting their homes with emails, phone calls and making rude and inappropriate gestures. Details were also given where Ms O’Shea, who holds a senior position with the HSE in the Mid West, sent an email to the employer of one of her neighbours that nearly resulted in a young man losing his job. The entire neighbourhood, according to Mr Judge, turned up in court to give evidence against Ms O’Shea, such was the upset her actions to date had caused. It was also heard that, in contrast to the proceedings before the court, over 70 emails were sent to gardai in relation to alleged complaints that Ms O’Shea made against her neighbours. These complaints made by Ms O’Shea were said to have been “without foundation”.Ms O’Shea took to the stand and gave an undertaking not to communicate in any way with the complainants and neighbours involved and to stop contacting gardai, including Superintendent Frank O’Brien, in relation to the proceedings or alleged unfounded complaints. Judge Aeneas McCarthy adjourned the matter for 12 months.
