When you start investing, the thought of becoming an ISA millionaire sounds outlandish. Surely it isn’t possible by plodding along and picking stocks from the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250?To retire as a millionaire, some say you’ll need to invest in the ‘next big thing’. Look at all of those people who made their fortunes from the Bitcoin surge in 2017. Or the early investors in Apple or Amazon who have retained their holdings.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…They might say that to invest in something boring won’t make you a millionaire. I disagree.What Warren Buffett saysAs a fan of Warren Buffett’s investing principles, my number one rule is to not lose money. I’ve come to realise that if investing seems exciting, I’m probably doing something wrong.Generally, the ‘next big thing’ has too many unknown quantities for me to part with my money. I’d rather invest in an established business, which has a history of revenue growth and low amounts of debt. The two main indices in the UK have a multitude of these types of companies.The good news is that you can become an ISA millionaire even with only small amounts.If you start investing at 20 years old with a lump sum of £1,000 and average returns of 8% a year, you would only need to invest £220 a month to reach £1m when you’re 65 (actually £1,095,991.68… consider it a bonus).The thing we have on our side is the power of compound interest: literally when your investment earns interest on its interest, building up and snowballing over time.Given a long period of time, compound interest is a powerful beast. It’s why investors like Warren Buffett avoid losing money at all costs, and steer clear of get-rich-quick investments.In our earlier example, over the 45-year period, you would have made contributions of £119,000. The rest (£976,191) is interest.Don’t delayAlthough compound interest is working in our favour, there is a force working against us — time. Warren Buffett knew this, and made his first investment when he was just 11 years old.Using our example, if you started investing the same amount, got the same returns, but started at 30 years-old, when it comes to retiring you’ll have just under £500,000. Increasing the monthly payment to £500 would get you back over the £1m mark.Starting at 40 years-old would get you a just over £200,000 when you hit 65. You’ll need to be saving roughly £1,100 a month to hit £1m by the time you retire.Coincidentally, if you started out at 11 years-old, like Buffett, a fairly low £100 regular monthly payment would have seen you over the £1m finishing line when you reach 65. Staggeringly, almost all of the £1m would be gained from interest. Less than £70,000 of this would be down to your own contributions.It is entirely possible to reach £1m through an ISA. All you need is some time, regular monthly payments and an average return on your investment. The rest is down to compound interest. Can you really become an ISA millionaire?

Wolfe announced on Nov. 13 that he has accepted a call to become rector of St. Bart’s in New York City, beginning on Feb. 5, 2017, and will step down as the ninth bishop of Kansas.Wolfe sent his message by email to clergy and lay leaders on Sunday morning to coincide with the announcement of his selection to the congregation of St. Bart’s. The news also was shared with worshippers at Sunday services across the 44 churches of the diocese. The full text of his message is available here.Wolfe told members of the diocese that he answered this call because of a sense that his ministry as bishop had reached a point, after 13 years, when leaving seemed to be neither too early “to accomplish all that God intended” nor too late “to frustrate the Spirit’s intentions.” He also noted that this new position will allow him again to focus on the work that first drew him into ordained ministry, including preaching and teaching.He said that leaving his role as bishop was difficult because of the relationships he had built in Kansas, as well as the work that had been accomplished in conjunction with clergy and lay leaders. Among those he cited are the establishment of the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry, a renewed campus ministry program and the creation of a refugee resettlement agency, as well as a new diocesan center for which ground soon will be broken.He noted that he leaves with a sound leadership team in place, including the Council of Trustees, which functions as the diocese’s Standing Committee and by canon serves as the ecclesiastical authority in the absence of a bishop. He said he also is leaving a “seasoned” diocesan staff, outstanding clergy who serve as deans of the diocese’s four regional convocations, sound financial resources, and committed lay and ordained leaders.The bishop noted that the diocese will be aided during the time of transition by the Presiding Bishop’s Office of Pastoral Development, and that he will be working up until the time he concludes his ministry as bishop to leave things in good order for his successor.He also asked members of the diocese to pray for him, his wife Ellen and their son William, and assured Kansans of his ongoing prayers for them.Wolfe was elected the ninth bishop of Kansas in July 2003 and was ordained and consecrated as bishop coadjutor on Nov. 8, 2003. He became diocesan bishop on Jan. 1, 2004, upon the retirement of his predecessor, Bishop William E. Smalley. He has been active in service to the Episcopal Church, serving since 2009 as a vice president of the House of Bishops and as a member of many churchwide committees.He is a 1992 graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, from which he received an honorary doctorate in 2004. He graduated from Miami University of Ohio in 1987. He is married to Elle Frantz-Wolfe, and they have one adult son, William.St. Bart’s is a congregation of about 3,000 members, located in midtown Manhattan. It was founded in 1835.

  • Florida school boards say they will decide when to resume classes,…

    first_img Please enter your comment! “The order specifically says five days availability, brick and mortar schools at full capacity,” Galvano said. “This is not just a one sentence order. It’s very comprehensive. A lot of time went into it. Commissioner Corcoran wanted to give direction.”DeSantis said districts can modify reopening procedures based on local circumstances, but must open their doors next month.That’s not how many school boards see it, however. The state constitution says elected school boards, not the state, decides when to open and close local schools.Members of the Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, Manatee, Orange and Seminole county school boards are among education officials across Florida who are questioning the constitutionality of Corcoran’s order.Palm Beach and Broward county school districts said they will not reopen as scheduled and when they do so, it may not be in accordance with Corcoran’s “full panoply of services” requirement.Orange and Seminole school boards vote Tuesday on how, when or if they will reopen in accordance with local health department guidance.Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said if Miami-Dade County is not in phase two of its reopening plan by Aug. 24, when its schools open, the district’s board will not approve in-person schooling.The Miami-Dade school board approved a reopening plan July 1 that allows in-person instruction only after the county moves into phase two of its reopening plan.The Miami-Dade school district is Florida’s largest and the nation’s fifth-largest school district, with more than 357,000 students, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).Carvalho was hopeful, however, that with renewed emphasis on safety protocols, adherence to social distancing and wearing face masks, numbers will decline over the next six weeks and schools can open.“It’s quite possible, but we need the community’s collaboration,” Carvalho said Sunday on NBC-TV’s “Meet the Press.” “We need the science to drive the practice, rather than politics influencing what is legitimately a community concern.”The Orange County school district said it might delay its Aug. 10 opening date for several weeks.Orange County Classroom Teachers Association President Wendy Doromal, who led a protest last week at district headquarters, said many educators are “terrified” about being forced to return to classrooms.Many school boards are offering parents choices that include in-person classes on campus, online lessons taught from students’ schools or in district virtual schools.In an op-ed in Monday’s Miami Herald, Senate Education Committee Chairman Manny Diaz, R-Hialeah Gardens, said “sensationalist news coverage” is frightening parents, noting “it is imperative that we safely reopen our schools. President (Donald) Trump is right – students can, and must, continue to learn full-time throughout the K-12 system.”A former teacher, Diaz said, “I will always put the best interests of our students first,” adding there is $150 billion in federal COVID-19 funding “readily accessible to state and local governments to help school districts affected by the coronavirus.” Focus on Education Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 A growing number of Florida school boards say they will defy a state order to open schools next month if local county health departments say it is not safe to do so. Senate President Bill Galvano, however, said districts must comply with the state order during a news conference in Bradenton with Gov. Ron DeSantis,.“Yes, the answer is yes. The [Florida Department of Education] cannot be ignored; must be adhered to,” Galvano, R-Bradenton, said Saturday. “School boards cannot ignore this order.”And, he said, they must do so in exact accordance with state Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran’s July 6 executive order that mandates all schools reopen next month for at least five days a week and offer “the full panoply of services,” including in-person instruction. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate EDITOR’S NOTE: The Orange County School Board meets today, July 14 at 12:30pm, and will vote on if, when and how they will reopen in a way that follows local health department guidance. Melissa Byrd, Orange County School Board member for District 7 and Apopka resident, was contacted for her comment on this, to which she shared, “I am greatly concerned about the safety and well-being of our students and staff. I hope that today we will come to a consensus on the best way to move forward while keeping our students and staff safe.” The meeting will be live streamed at the following link:https://www.youtube.com/user/OCPSboardmeetings.

Oriented in relation to the rolling hills of its site and views of surrounding mountain ranges, the house is conceived as two elongated volumes – a smaller inner volume sleeved into a larger outer – sitting on a cast-in-place concrete base. Sleeving the two volumes creates two distinct types of interior space: first, between the inner and outer volumes, and second within the inner volume.Save this picture!Site PlanMore public spaces of the house are in between the inner and outer volumes; they are the spaces remaining in the outer volume after the inner has been inserted into it. They include a dramatic entry gallery, a narrow vertical slot for the stairs, and a high ceilinged living space with a sloping wall of glass. These spaces are on a grand scale and they are finished with exposed concrete and charred wood, which run continuously in from the exterior. The interior of the inner volume contains private spaces of the house – bedrooms, bathroom and a study. These spaces are on an intimate scale with more typical domestic finishes. The experience of moving between these two types of spaces is like moving between two different worlds.Save this picture!© Michael Moran/OTTO ArchiveIn the design of the house, aesthetics and sustainability are complementary forces. The inner and outer volumes are both wrapped around their tops, bottoms, and longs sides with charred wood. The charring is a traditional Japanese process called shou sugi ban, which leaves wood highly resistant to weather and rot. The wood itself is acetylated soft wood, which combined with the charring, creates a low-maintenance 50-year exterior cladding product that does not require harvesting old growth forest.Save this picture!© Michael Moran/OTTO ArchiveMain glazing areas are in short ends of the sleeved volume, which are oriented north-south to admit desirable solar gain and day-lighting. Smaller secondary windows are oriented east–west and screened by louvers to emphasize the purity of the sleeved volumes, reference the volumetric simplicity of historical barns and silos in the region, and mitigate less desirable solar gain.Save this picture!Exploded Sleeve DiagramThe sleeved volumes sit on an exposed cast-in-place concrete base that forms the walls, steps and floors of the lower level. The floors and steps contain radiant heat elements, and together with the walls, they create a large thermal mass that significantly increases heating and cooling efficiency. Other energy efficient features including solar power with battery backup, a heat recovery ventilator, triple-pane glazing, water/sewer self-sufficiency, very low air infiltration and native plant landscaping keep the home’s CO2 usage at approximately 1 metric ton per year.Save this picture!© Michael Moran/OTTO ArchiveProject gallerySee allShow lessYour Favorite Fictional Universes in Pen and PaperArchitecture NewsDrawing Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Apple PencilArticles Share Dells Plumbing and Heating CopyAbout this officeactual / officeOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTaghkanicUnited StatesPublished on August 17, 2018Cite: “Sleeve House / actual / office” 17 Aug 2018.

  • Authorities free The Independent’s general manager and editor, but hold on to reporter

    first_img The Independent’s general manager, Madi Ceesay, and its editor, Musa Saidykhan, were released this afternoon on bail after being illegally detained for more than three weeks. They will have to report to the police every day. Meanwhile, Lamin M. Fatty, a reporter for the privately-owned biweekly who was arrested on 12 April, is still being held.

They will have to report to the police every day. Meanwhile, Lamin M. Fatty, a reporter for the privately-owned biweekly who was arrested on 12 April, is still being held.Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call for the immediate release of Fatty, who is being held without charge and without access to a lawyer or to his family well beyond the maximum period of 72 hours permitted by Gambian law.—————04.04.2006 – Two journalists held illegally for the past weekReporters Without Borders voiced alarm today at the impunity with which the Gambian government has been able to illegally detain Madi Ceesay, the managing director of the biweekly newspaper The Independent, and Musa Saydikhan, its editor, for the past week.The press freedom organisation wrote today to the British, French and US ambassadors in Banjul calling on them to “urgently intercede with authorities to obtain the release of these two journalists,” adding that their detention was illegal under Gambian law as charges must be brought against a detainee within 72 hours.They were arrested at the same time as many other members of the newspaper’s staff in an operation carried out on 28 March by the Criminal Investigation Department, with the support of the elite Police Intervention Unit. The other staff members were released the same day, but The Independent’s offices have remained closed ever since and the newspaper has not reappeared.Ceesay and Saidykhan were initially held at the Banjul police station but were transferred on 31 March to the headquarters of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA). They have not been allowed to see their lawyer or their families. The Gambia Press Union (GPU), the country’s main journalists’ union, has not been able to find out the reasons for their detention, despite asking the NIA’s deputy director general and secretary of state for information Neneh Macdouall Gaye. Ceesay’s is the GPU’s president.According to a Gambian source who asked not to be identified, Ceesay and Saidykhan were arrested because The Independent’s 24 March issue named 23 people who had supposedly been arrested for their alleged participation in an abortive coup on 21 March. Those named included Samba Bah, a former interior minister and former head of the NIA, whose angry denial of the report’s accuracy was published in the 27 March issue under the headline, “I am not arrested,” together with the newspaper’s apology. The NIA is thought to have been trying to get Ceesay and Saidykhan to reveal who told them Bah was arrested as a member of the 21 March conspiracy.In its letters to the ambassadors, Reporters Without Borders also voiced its concern about the “climate of fear which the Gambian authorities have imposed on the privately-owned press” for the past few years.

  • Unusual lettings platform claims first landlords sign-ups

    first_imgHome » News » Unusual lettings platform claims first landlords sign-ups previous nextProptechUnusual lettings platform claims first landlords sign-upsRenttl.co.uk operates in London and is a model that many councils are now examining as they pursue more creative ways to find their tenants accommodation.Nigel Lewis18th December 20190901 Views  The UK’s first local authority trading company (LATC) rental proptech platform has claimed initial success with 34 families housed and 51 landlords signed up, it has told The Negotiator.Called Renttl.co.uk, the four-month old lettings platform is unique because it offers landlords an attractive package including a rent deposit guarantee scheme of up to three months’ rent and financial incentives up to £4,600 to take on households threatened with homelessness.It also puts prospective tenants through a course on how to live in the private sector and gives them financial help with their deposit. Both landlords and renters are supported by a liaison officer.“Landlords get someone who is tenancy-ready and an online property and tenant on-boarding system that it is easy to complete and manage, takes just three days and offers landlords a lot more information about prospective tenants than traditional letting agents can,” says Lorraine Thomas, MD of Encompass LATC (left).Operated by Encompass LATC, Renttl.co.uk was set up with grant funding from the Department of Housing, Communities and Local Government and is seeking landlords who directly manage their properties. Thomas expects the platform to become a major supplier of private rented properties to households living in and around Sutton.Lettings platform“We’ve had an enthusiastic response to the scheme from landlords but we’ve got to wait for properties to become available and landlord portfolios to increase in size.“But we’ve already seen a 34% increase in the number of properties that we normally procure from the private rental market.”During the most recent financial year Encompass LATC received requests for housing help from over 1,300 families facing becoming homeless.Read more about lettings platforms.lettings platform Renttl.co.uk Encompass LATC Lorraine Thomas December 18, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

  • Listen To Gov’t Mule’s First Ever Session In The Studio Together

    first_imgThis Friday, Gov’t Mule will release The Tel-Star Sessions, a new disc that features the band’s first-ever session in the studio together. Taken from 1994, this previously-unreleased footage captured Mule in their formative moments, discovering their musical chemistry was greater than just a side project. The band strapped together what few songs they collectively knew, and the result is a high-powered session that shows the raw energy of Gov’t Mule.Mule formed during some downtime from The Allman Brothers Band, when guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody wanted to continue working on new music. They recruited Dickey Betts Band’s drummer Matt Abts, eager to capture the power rock trio sound that had been popularized by Cream.It’s no surprise that some of these tracks still remain in Mule’s catalog, as the band continues to rock it out on a regular basis. With a new album in the works and tours with both Blackberry Smoke and ZZ Top on the way, it’s an exciting time to be a fan!Check out the full stream of the new Tel-Star Sessions album, courtesy of Ultimate Classic Rock.last_img read more
