Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Tom Rodgers | Saturday, 13th June, 2020 | More on: UKDV If you want to open a Junior ISA, known as a JISA, the number of investing options available to you can be totally overwhelming.Funds, shares, bonds, gold, what’s best? Should you buy FTSE 100 household names like Shell or Tesco? Or plump for lesser-known growth stocks on the FTSE 250? 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…JISA EinsteinMums and dads being furloughed — along with no school — has made for some fairly tense home situations. Yes, these truly are strange and difficult times. Furnishing your little ones with a JISA might be the last thing on your mind.But a JISA can make the most of the greatest invention the world has ever devised. Einstein named it the eighth wonder of the world for good reason. This slice of genius is called compound interest.We’d all like to make our son or daughter rich. But every good investor should follow Warren Buffett’s number one principle: don’t lose money. Because funds contain far more than a handful of individual shares, they are often less volatile. That means prices don’t tend to swing wildly back and forth. And funds are often just easier to deal with.JISA AristocratSSGA SPDR ETFs Europe (LSE:UKDV) — better known by the ticker symbol UKDV — holds shares in 41 different FTSE 100 companies that are called ‘dividend aristocrats’. These are the top best-paying dividend shares in the FTSE 100.Hold shares in this fund and you’ll be paid a 5% dividend into your JISA, twice every year.Among the top companies held by the UKDV fund are renewable wind farm operator SSE, water utility giant Pennon Group, pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, and popular financial services company Legal & General.The fund managers do all the calculations for you, which is good, and will even move certain shares in and out of the fund if they are underperforming.You’ll pay a small management fee of 0.3% to hold this fund in a JISA. Reinvest your dividends — there’ll be a tickbox option in your JISA settings — and you can buy up more shares in the fund at no extra cost. This is where Einstein’s magic happens. Reinvesting dividends equals compound interest.Working magicEach year you can put up to £9,000 into a JISA, tax free. Those last two words are extremely important. It means any capital gains (from share price rises) or dividends (paid out by companies from profits) are entirely free from tax in the JISA.Family and friends are also allowed to contribute to a JISA, if you want to steer your kids away from birthday presents of soon-discarded Nintendo Switch games or the latest trainers.You can open a JISA when your child is at any age. Add the maximum each year and in five years’ time you’ll have a very healthy £45,000. But use Einstein’s eighth wonder of the world and my suggestions of a 5% dividend fund, with the dividends reinvested? That £45,000 has just turned into £60,788.Just imagine what you could do if you leave it till they are 18?Even at small contributions, the amounts you can add from dividend investing are quite staggering. Say you can only start with £100 a month. Leave it long enough — 18 years would do it — and if the rates remain relatively constant, you’d come away with a JISA worth £31,713.

Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Tip: Prices rise when school is outAmericans will likely find busy airports and rising airfares during the next several weeks. The Travel Security Administration (TSA) expects to screen more than 62 million air travelers during Spring Break. This is the first big travel push of the year, and finding a low-priced air ticket may not be easy.“In many ways, travel is cyclical and one common theme is that airfare costs increase when kids are out of school,” said Vicky Evans, Assistant Vice President, Travel Sales Development, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “We normally see airfares rise during Spring Break, slip lower in April and May, then shoot back up in the summer. Having knowledge of some basic principles when booking your flight can go a long way in helping you get the most for your money.”AAA’s Tips for Finding the Cheapest AirfareBook early. Air carriers want to fill every seat on the plane. They base their rates on supply and demand. Prices will be higher on flights with few available seats. Conversely, when empty seats are in high supply, the prices are adjusted to entice travelers to book.Shop on a Monday or Tuesday, between midnight and 5 a.m. Any flights – booked during the day, that are not paid in full – are released at midnight, a time when most people are sleeping. This means more seat availability, reduced demand, and cheaper airfares.Delete computer cookies. If you check an air carrier’s website multiple times a day and notice the price of the same flight has increased, try deleting your computer cookies. Otherwise, the website may remember that you visited before and might not show the lowest price available.Travel during off-peak times. Airfare is often much cheaper for early morning or late-night flights. Since these times are inconvenient for many travelers, fares tend to be cheaper.Get quotes from regional airports. Oftentimes regional airports offer cheaper flights than international airports.Bundle. Travelers can find incentive pricing when booking their airfare together with a hotel and/or rental car.“For many, searching the web for the cheapest airfare is daunting, which is why AAA highly recommends working with a travel agent to help save time and money,” said Evans. “Travel agents eliminate the hassle of surfing the web and ensure travelers will get the best flight, at the least expensive price.”  Travelers can speak to a travel agent at their local AAA branch, or compare prices and develop their own itinerary on AAA.com/Travel.Peak Travel PeriodsSpring Break (late February – early April)Summer (Memorial Day weekend – Labor Day weekend)ThanksgivingChristmas/New Year’sBusiest Days to TravelFriday, Sunday, and Monday (Domestic): Heavier traffic days with Americans departing or returning from business trips or extended weekends.Weekends (International): The majority of international travelers start their vacation on a weekend.Attention International FlyersIf you are going on an international flight, be sure your passport is up to date. If your passport is set to expire within 6 months of your return date, you will not be permitted to board the plane. Also, consult with a travel agent to learn more about visa and immunization requirements at your destination.Book Travel on the AAA Mobile AppThe free AAA mobile app allows travelers to book a flight, hotel, and rental car; find travel guides, vacation ideas, deals, driving tips, and locate a AAA travel agent near you.

Now, that story sure got my endorphins going this morning!!It’s even funnier because my grandparents had one on their farm and all kinds of stuff happened. Like the time when my cousins moved it back about 3 feet!! When you mix boys and outhouses, well, just watch out!!Sure was a great, visual story!!Thanks Chuck. God bless you! Reply Many memories, my grandparents lived out in the country by a lake and their yard was BIG, especially for young boys, fortunately there was an outhouse on the far back edge which was used when it wasn’t possible to get to the house! This does not seem very frightening but there was a nest of wasps who had built a nest or hive or whatever it is called in that very outhouse so using it became a rite of passage into becoming “grown up”! It took courage to use that facility, all the while staring at the nest and planning how we would escape certain death if we even saw a wasp! Ah, the warm memories of childhood! To this day if I see a wasp or bee, I do not swat at it or even yell, I simply become very still and pray,” Father, please tell him I will leave him alone if he affords me the same courtesy ” !

Having never used an outhouse your description was wonderful and instructive. Thanks again for a great read. NH Ahh Ricardo me ol’ pal, Just yesterday I evicted a nest of wasps from a friends house. The friend was grateful, he wasps not so much. I have always had an agreement with the wild creature innature that if they don’t molest me I won’t molest them! That has worked out pretty well so far for all involved. Bless you, Chaz July 5, 2020 at 7:17 pm Dear Herb and Susette, when I was a kid almost every home had what was known as a “necessary facility” in their back yard. Most were built of clapboard construction, only the wealthy could afford brick out houses, which the less refined referred to as s..tters, or s..t houses. Toilet paper or “Arbuckles” was not common but a bucket of corn cobs or a Monkey Wards catalog served the purpose very well. Oh, and by the way, I have seen a couple two story crappers in my time. Bless you folks, Chaz Dear Mike, I can still see Buster’s daddy staggering up the path to their house with his pants down around his ankles! Life sure is fun isn’t it? Bless you folks muchly, Chaz July 17, 2020 at 10:17 pm Charles Towne Reply CSG Richard Reply Reply Please enter your name here InspirationBy Charles TowneBuster was a friend of mine and his mama hated spiders.She didn’t just hate spiders, she hated spiders with a passion.  To hear her tell it, spiders were fallen angels, the spawn of Satan.One day, his mama told us that if we killed the spiders in their outhouse, she would give us each some of the oatmeal cookies she had just baked. Wow, what a deal! Buster told me that the reason his mama hated spiders so bad was that she was afraid one of them was going to bite her on her bum.Well, it might happen!Anyway, we went out to their necessary facility and started looking for spiders, and soon realized the spiders were smarter than we were. Which really shouldn’t have surprised us all that much ‘cause even garden slugs were smarter then we were.Yeah, the clever little boogers were pretty clever ‘cause they were hiding under the toilet seat where they could bite any unwary bottom that happened to intrude upon their domain.(And in case you’re wondering, thinking about oatmeal cookies while trying to eradicate spiders in a smelly outhouse was something we definitely could wrap our minds around to get through it!)The problems: we couldn’t murder-ify the spiders. As much as we desired those delicious oatmeal cookies, neither of us wanted to stick our heads through the hole in the toilet seat to hunt for threatening critters.But, as boys often do, we soon came up with a solution: We would blow the spiders up!I had some cherry bombs left over from the 4th of July, and after giving it very little thought, which was the way we approached most of our schemes, we figured that if we dropped a cherry bomb down the toilet hole, BANG!  No more spiders.I held the cherry bomb while my old pal Buster lit the fuse.  I stepped into the outhouse, threw the cherry bomb down the toilet hole, and turned to jump back outside just as my old buddy Buster slammed the door trapping me in the outhouse!Did I say he was my friend?Well, my desire to get out was greater than his desire to keep me in, so we were both standing outside laughing when the cherry bomb exploded.We were really expecting a very large BANG… but all we got was a measly little, pop.Neither of us had ever heard of a dud cherry bomb before.Well, we put our heads together again, which was probably dangerous at the best of times, and concluded that if we twisted the fuses together of half a dozen cherry bombs, it might do the job.See, who said kids don’t think.Our plan B was genius. Unfortunately, we were not, leaving out the consideration of unexpected variables.About the time we threw our spider killing bomb down the toilet hole, Buster’s daddy surprised us by rushing down the path on a very urgent errand. He threw the door open and had just sat down… when our bomb EXPLODED! Quite spectacularly, I might add.Buster’s daddy exited the outhouse without even opening the door. I mean, he quite literally tore the door off its hinges.Not even noticing us standing awestruck outside, he quickly hobbled up the path to the house, which was all the more humorous because his pants were down around his ankles and his backside adorned, painted if you will, with the aromatic contents from the nether regions of the outhouse.  As he stumbled along he was mumbling something about not knowing where in the world those boys got dynamite!Reasonably I suppose, Buster and I were given the more-than-stinky task of washing the inside of the outhouse… but his mama did give us each a glass of milk and some oatmeal cookies.I think it was about that time that Buster’s daddy began to develop a very peculiar twitch, very similar to my father’s. It must be hereditary or something, because when my three boys were in their teens, I began to acquire that same twitch.Papa God’s children sometimes do some rather goofy things don’t we?  But do you know what?  He loves us anyway. And He is going to give us something a lot sweeter than milk and oatmeal cookies!Papa God, thank you for parents. I reckon there wouldn’t be boys if there weren’t parents. Lord, please help all parents and keep them safe. We love you and thank you for an interesting childhood that, for the most part, we survived. AmenCharles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. Oh yes, almost forgot….Sure would like to have some of those oatmeal cookies to go with my coffee!! July 5, 2020 at 2:39 pm Herb &Thanks again for a great read. Leo Gives a whole new understanding to the phrase “blew the crap out of it” and the possibility of the etymology of the phrase being traced to Buster and Chuck. Great Sunday morning chuckle from the master story teller. Mike McFadden July 8, 2020 at 9:24 am Charles Towne Little Brother, He He … Always with your Funny & Lovely Stories that remind me my childhood at the farms … We loved it and had some much fun. And also we’re still alive.Thanks GOD for this Beautiful Childhood and for giving us such a wonderful fathers. Reply I am still laughing….what a colorful childhood you had and I am so glad you are sharing these stories. Thank you my dear friend! Charles Towne Please enter your comment! Dear NH, One important thing I have learned is that a sense of humor, of joy, even the ridiculous is a wonderful gift from Papa God. I realize that to some that might border on the sacrilegious, but I back up what I am saying with the wild and whacky things we see in nature. Take monkeys for instance…no, lets not take monkeys!

ARVAC broadcasts subscribers’ names and e-mail addresses

first_img Today’s data protection faux pas is brought to you by ARVAC, who have just sent their e-mail newsletter complete with the names and e-mail addresses of all their subscribers.The Association for Research in the Voluntary & Community Sector has just published its latest e-mail newsletter. Unfortunately three quarters of the message we received consisted of the names and e-mail addresses of all the recipients. As one of those recipients, UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake most certainly has not given his permission to share those details with everyone else on the list, so we assume that ARVAC is publishing such personal data without permission.ARVAC is of course not alone. UK Fundraising reported on 28 April that a regional group of the Institute of Fundraising and the Institute of Philanthropy had both committed the same mistake in their e-mail newsletters.

They enable any recipient of those newsletters to misuse the data. Even if every recipient scrupulously ignores the e-mail addresses, they could still cause problems if they were to forward the full newsletter to another contact. Then there is the issue of viruses that scan PCs for e-mail addresses contained within their e-mail package and start sending virus-laden messages to all those e-mail addresses.Such a basic ignorance of the difference between the Cc. and Bc. fields in an e-mail package is unacceptable in 2003. E-mail is not that new.UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake has advised charities on using e-mail ever since he wrote Amnesty International UK’s e-mail guide in 1994, alarmed that the organisation had introduced e-mail to staff without explaining some of the serious problems that the new tool could create.One of Howard’s upcoming training courses is on how to use e-mail to fundraise, and he’ll be running over the basics of e-mail during the day.last_img read more

Maoist chief issues death threats against three journalists

Your party should allow Nepalese journalists to work freely and safely in the areas you control,” it said.A Maoist leader of the people’s government of Parbat district in Central Nepal, Kshetra Bahadur Regmi, alias Kisaan, telephoned a correspondent of the daily Spacetime on 6 October and threatened to kill three other journalists.They were: Lal Prasad Sharma of Kantipur, Durga Prasad Sharma of Nepal Samacharpatra and Hari Narayan Gautam of Rajdhani all of whom had investigated and written articles about the abduction by rebels of seven adolescents from two schools in Parbat district.A wave of forced recruitment in the area has meant that many families no longer send their children to school for fear the Maoists will kidnap them.The journalists supposed that the rebels were enrolling the snatched children into their military wing. The dailies Kantipur, Nepal Samacharpatra and Rajdhani also carried appeals from the parents for their children to be released. The Maoist leader accused the journalists of spreading “false information to make money”. “They told us to burgle neighbouring houses rather than write articles against the Maoists,” said Durga Prasad Sharma, who added that he took the death threat very seriously. “We are in danger of being executed,” he said.On 11 September 2004, Maoist leader Krishna Bahadur Mahara apologised for the murder of journalist Dekendra Raj Thapa and assured Nepal’s journalist community that it would not happen again.

DS News Webcast: Thursday 6/5/2014

first_img 2014-06-05 DSNews Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: DSNews Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: New Hampshire Foreclosure Outlook Largely Positive Next: Mortgage Master Welcomes Northern California Regional Manager Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago June 5, 2014 602 Views DS News Webcast: Thursday 6/5/2014 In a blog post, RealtyTrac VP Daren Blomquist analyzed nationwide data on home flipping over the last 12 months. He found that although total flipping was down in the first quarter of 2014 compared to a year ago, flippers are making bigger profits per flip. The average gross profit per flip in the first quarter of 2014 saw a 30 percent return on the initial purchase price, while gross profits increased year-over-year for a 28 percent return on investment. However, the total volume of flipped properties has declined from the previous year.Blomquist noted that 3.7 percent of all single-family homes sold this year were flips, compared to a 6.5 percent share of sales a year ago. The company said one of the most important factors in a successful and profitable home flip is how much work will need to be performed on the house in order to resell it at a higher margin. The top counties by gross return on investment in Q1 2014 include Prince George’s County, Maryland; York County, Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; Campbell County, Kentucky; and New Castle County, Delaware.In its latest Beige Book, the Federal Reserve noted economic activity has expanded in recent months, with the pace of growth characterized as moderate in the Boston, New York, Richmond, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, and San Francisco Districts, yet modest in the remaining regions.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Shivashankar Amarannavar have the case for further hearing on May 15. Advocate Murthy Dayanand Naik, appearing for the petitoner has been directed the serve the copy of the petiton on the Chairman of the State Bar Council. The association has in its petition claimed that “Larger number of clerks do not have a regular source of income and are heavily dependent on the day to day filing of cases in various courts. Due to the present situation prevailing in the entire country due to the break out of the Novel Coronavirus disease “Covid-19″, the actual functioning of the courts have been closed since 25th March 2020. This has resulted in great hardship to the members of the Petitioner-Association mentioned above and most of them are in a state of penury. None of the Respondents mentioned in this Petition have taken any measures to financially support the members of the Association nor have they even enquired about their well being.” The association is seeking directions to the state to create a corpus of an amount of Rs 5 crore to ensure that the subsistence of the members of the Petitioner-Association is guaranteed in terms of right to livelihood guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution of India, during the period of closure. Further, direct the State Bar Council to disburse a sum of Rs.20,000 per month per registered member of the association from the corpus created by state on submission of the requisite identity card. By way of interim relief, the plea seeks directions to the state to release a sum of Rs.10,000, per person/per member of the Association to be disbursed by the state bar council upon production of the identity card by the respective registered clerk during the period of closure from 25th March 2020 till the commencement of the normal functioning of the courts. Because there is no judicial work taking place in any of the courts in the State and thereby the clerks have absolutely no work and are deprived of their livelihood it amounts to violation of their fundamental right as enshrined under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution of India. The plea also states that high court by order dated 16.04.2008 was pleased to direct the state to constitute a fund called the Karnataka Registered Clerks Welfare Fund as contemplated under Section 27 of the Karnataka Advocates Welfare Fund Act, 1983 and notified the Rules as expeditiously as possible not later than six months from the date of the said order. However, no fruitful action was taken pursuant to the said direction and as such, till date, no measures have been adopted with regard to the welfare of the members of the association.
