Forget gold and buy-to-let. I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 stocks today to beat the State Pension

first_imgForget gold and buy-to-let. I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 stocks today to beat the State Pension The FTSE 100 may have rebounded following its market crash, but the outlook for share prices continues to be highly unclear. Risks, such as a global economic recession and weak earnings growth prospects across many industries, may mean some investors decide to buy other assets, such as gold and buy-to-let, to build a retirement nest egg.However, the long-term prospects for the stock market could be much more promising than investor sentiment currently suggests. Buying large-cap shares while they are cheap could help you to overcome a rising State Pension age and enjoy a growing passive income in retirement.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…Buying FTSE 100 shares at low levelsAs with any asset, FTSE 100 shares experience periods of growth and periods of decline. Investors who can purchase stocks when they’re relatively cheap could, therefore, position their portfolios for growth as the next bull market pushes share prices higher.At present, a number of large-cap shares appear to offer good value for money. In some cases they trade significantly below their long-term averages, and could offer wide margins of safety.Certainly, there are risks ahead for many industries and firms, including the giants in the FTSE 100. Consumer habits may have been permanently changed by lockdown, while weak consumer sentiment may mean demand takes some time to return to pre-coronavirus levels.However, buying high-quality companies while there are significant short-term risks present could enable you to access lower share prices. These could provide greater scope for capital growth over the long run.Relative potentialDuring a period of relatively high risks, the appeal of gold and buy-to-let property may increase compared to FTSE 100 shares. Gold, for example, has a strong track record of outperforming other mainstream assets during periods of economic uncertainty. As such, its price level has risen close to a record high in the first part of 2020.Likewise, buy-to-let investments are often viewed as relatively low risk. Property prices have moved higher over a long time period. And they’re likely to do likewise over the coming years, due to an imbalance between demand and supply.However, investor sentiment has always improved following economic crises in the past. that means gold’s capital growth potential may be somewhat limited. Likewise, risks, such as longer void periods and slow rental growth during a likely recession, may make buy-to-let investing less attractive than buying the FTSE 100.Building a retirement portfolioBuying a range of FTSE 100 shares could be a sound means of building a retirement portfolio that provides you with a passive income in older age. The index’s low level and its capacity to recover over the long run mean that it could be a sound means of overcoming a rising State Pension age.As such, now could be the right time to purchase high-quality FTSE 100 stocks for the long term.

Impeccable pigeon captivates 79th General Convention with real, digital presence

In one of its tweets it asked for stale crullers or glazed donuts.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry gave General Convention Pigeon a shout-out during his sermon at the convention revival.“ we basically like @gc79pigeon” @PB_Curry #gc79— Alli Huggins (@ahuggable) July 7, 2018Yet, even as it has gained a certain amount of notoriety, @gc79pigeon knows where it ranks in the #GC79 stardom hierarchy. “I have NOTHING on Dinorah,” the humble pigeon tweeted, praising Curry’s interpreter Dinorah Padro.I have NOTHING on Dinorah. #sheisarockstar https://t.co/uazDxSjDio— General Convention Pigeon (@gc79pigeon) July 8, 2018– The Rev.

But it was hard to insert the smart card without opposable thumbs! https://t.co/msQyxJBNVg— General Convention Pigeon (@gc79pigeon) July 7, 2018It has no such equipment because it has not acquired the proper credential. It was reportedly wandering around in the convention registration area later on July 7, perhaps attempting to secure official permission.Still, it is the only creature with full access to the house without the needed red credential holder around its neck. This seems to be attributable to its powers of propulsion.However, it has acquired something potentially much more valuable than #GC79 credentials: the Twitter handle @gc79pigeon and, as of the writing of this story, 608 followers. (The bird follows six other Twitter accounts, including @episcopal_news.)General Convention Pigeon, who claims to be a “Nested Episcopalian” similar to the human designation of “Cradle Episcopalian,” appears to be much gentler than Austin’s grackles, which have been dive bombing people on foot and on bicycles, sometimes landing on their heads (including this reporter’s).In an interview with Episcopal News Service during July 7 and 8 (the bird is busy) via Twitter direct message, @gc79pigeon said it hopes it is “part of the movement of the spirit that brings something to keep people relaxed, laughing, and in good spirits when things get tense.”The bird cited the Diocese of Fort Worth’s Deputy Bingo and a number of Flat Jesus cutouts making their way around the Exhibit Hall. The fact that the deputies are aflutter over the General Convention Pigeon is reminiscent of the house’s Bonnie Ball game during the 77th General Convention in 2012.Asked by ENS if it had to fly a long way to get to #GC79, the bird reported having flown 1,080 miles from Salt Lake City, the site of the 78th General Convention in 2015. “Good workout,” @gc79pigeon noted.The bird’s sense of the passage of time is apparently unlike that of humans. During the interview, it professed to be young. “I’ve been an Episcopalian since I was a chick,” it pecked. “Now, given that was only a few months ago, that’s nowhere near the experience of everyone gathered at General Convention. But, when measured in bird years? Yes. Nested Episcopalian.”The bird appears also to be visiting members of its extended family.OMG SARAH IS HERE. You know what they say about birds of a feather… they look for stale donuts together. https://t.co/f8yogHy2MG— General Convention Pigeon (@gc79pigeon) July 8, 2018Other pigeons roost in the hall now occupied by the House of Deputies. While the convention was loading into the space, the resident birds made no attempt to leave. On the rare occasions when the deputies are silent, the faint sound of baby pigeons can be heard.“There are plenty of fellow pigeons around the convention center,” the bird advised ENS. “Don’t focus on which one I am. A single pigeon with a platform has a duty to speak for all pigeonkind.”Some of the resident pigeons appear to be fouler than the well-mannered @gc79pigeon fowl. They roost high in the rafters above the House of Deputies dais, and at times, rather than flying to the restrooms, some have been “commenting” on a table set up precariously close to the equipment that runs the deputies’ voting system.“As to who pooped on the voting table — you might think that we are responsible. But I couldn’t possibly comment,” General Convention Pigeon messaged via Twitter on July 8 after flying to Taylor, Texas, and back, for a convention prayer service outside the T. Don Hutto Residential Center.Although well-mannered and concerned about social justice issues, @gc79pigeon can be a bit cheeky.It me. https://t.co/qQ8KYZ3WAe— C.

Of these, only the mourning, white-winged, and white-tipped (white-fronted) doves are legal game birds. Therefore, deputies and vendors may not eat or hunt the Rock Doves in our midst.

Building Refurbishment And Roof Extension In Tel-Aviv / Koniak…

A typical Tel-Avivian residential building, built in the international style during the 1930’s and found in a bad state of the repair was the staring point. The project included adding an external lift and roof extension to the existing 3 stories structure whilst refurbishing and structurally strengthening the whole building. Save this picture!long sectionThe design approach was to integrate the new build with the character of the building, by working with the existing mass and materiality, establishing continuity between elements like the decorative facade cornice and the new lift. The structural work included underpinning the foundations and bracing the building with UPN and flat steel profiles which were mostly concealed in the new render applied to the building. The roof extension consists of a full extra floor and a partial floor above that, constituting one residential duplex unit. Save this picture!© Sezar MendelbaumThe flat was envisaged as series of large lit interconnected rooms. Light coming in from the south facing windows on the top level is filtered down through a floor opening and a perforated steel staircase, connecting the two levels. The area left between these two structural holes acts as a “bridge” between the flat and the front roof terrace. Save this picture!© Sezar MendelbaumThe top roof structure consists of structural HEB beams with a 10 cm layer of concrete cast on top, with the bottom part of the beams perturbing down into the space beneath. This system was chosen in order to maintain a thin continuous roof slab which consists of a horizontal strip that is followed by a steep pitch. Save this picture!© Sezar MendelbaumThis approach satisfied local building code demanding space for technical equipment on a flat top roof (which was used to install a solar water heating system for the majority of the building) whilst allowing for maximum height inside the space bellow. Save this picture!© Sezar MendelbaumThe steel beams, clearly visible in the space, continue into the front roof terrace, establishing a strong visual connection and are also used a track system of sorts for internal light fixtures.Project gallerySee allShow lessFountain at Pilsen / Ondřej CíslerArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticlesProject locationAddress:Tel Aviv, IsraelLocation to be used only as a reference.

Both pro- and anti-government demonstrators threaten media

The statement nonetheless acknowledged that the wave of anti-government protests had received little coverage since they began.At the same time, the Bangkok-based Southeast Asian Press Alliance (SEAPA) warned that the opposition’s actions posed a threat to the independence of the media and journalists.Demonstrators nonetheless continued to target the media today. In the northern city of Chiang Mai, around 150 members of Rak Chiang Mai, a pro-government “Red Shirt” group, marched to the local Thai PBS branch and handed in a letter calling on it not to broadcast Suthep’s statements, which it said were illegal.Shortly before the march, a Rak Chiang Mai leader warned that the group’s members would set fire to any TV station continuing to Suthep’s statements.Thailand is ranked 135th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Credit photo : The Nation Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Reporters Without Borders is very worried by the harassment of TV stations by both pro- and anti-government demonstrators.“It is clear from the latest events that the demonstrators have not heeded our appeals and the appeals of Thai journalists’ associations to respect the media’s work,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Targeting TV stations and forcing them to broadcast messages of any nature is unacceptable. This is a real threat to media freedom and independence. As the physical attack on a German freelance journalist on 25 November showed, events can easily get out of hand in the current fraught climate.” Reporters Without Borders added: “Everyone has a duty to guarantee a safe environment for all the media, including those that are not independent.”Anti-government demonstrators stormed into six TV stations yesterday demanding that their statements be broadcast on the air and telling the stations not to report government information. In the course of the morning, activists managed to seize control of the Bangkok headquarters of public broadcaster Thai PBS and at the same time get control of its news coverage.The anti-government protesters entered NBT and Channel 11 in Bangkok at around 11 am. All TV stations except state-owned NBT were forced to carry a statement by opposition leader Suthep Thaugsuban in a feed supplied by the opposition TV station Blue Sky.Under an accord with the demonstrators, Thai PBS broadcast the speech in a small window on its screen, and planned to provide equal time to government representatives.Blue Sky televised negotiations between Thai PBS and demonstrators in which an opposition representative said: “If you don’t follow our request, we will have to black out the station. We have to. That’s the only way. We can’t let it be any other way.” Suthep, for his part, said the TV stations had “cooperated” to relay the feed and had been “understanding.” News News to go further Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years News June 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Latest Stories “We don’t have a name for the singings, they’re just old timey singings and we sing a cappella,” Senn said. “We furnish the song books and we take requests and everybody that wants to lead a song can. We have a lot of good singing, one song right after the other, and everybody has a good time.”The Old Country Church is familiar to many because it was the sanctuary for the Hamilton Cross Roads Church of Christ in the early 1900s.“When we got a new church building, we used the older one for meals, singings and other events like that,” Senn said. “Then, when we got the fellowship building, it was going to be torn down unless someone whated to go to the expense of having it moved. My wife and I decided to do that. We had the old church moved to our property and did a little work on it. Now, we use it for the singings once a year and a few other special events.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Published 12:00 am Friday, November 20, 2009 You Might Like Football puts good spin on economy As the city of Troy and Troy University prepare to host the eighth AISA Triple Header State Championship this Friday,… read more Old-fashioned singing Sunday at the Old Country Church Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitslast_img read more

Drugs move could hit policies

first_imgMoves to discriminate recreational drugs could make it harder for employersto force anti-drugs policies on their employees, legal experts have claimed.Last week the Police Foundation released a report into criminal penaltiesattached to drug use and made radical proposals including the downgrading ofdrugs such as Ecstasy to the lowest Class C, and the decriminalisation ofpossession of cannabis.The initial reaction of the Government and its Drugs Czar Keith Halliwellhas been to pour cold water on such recommendations, but many believe the UKwill eventually follow other European countries into decriminalisation, whichwould have knock-on effects on company policies.Jonathan Chamberlain, partner at law firm Wragge & Co, said,”Employers would find it harder to justify anti-drugs policies which werenot directly related to the workplace.”He added, “If they were dismissing an employee for something that isn’ta criminal offence they had better have a very good reason for doing so.” Drugs move could hit policiesOn 4 Apr 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
