Forget a Cash ISA, I say this is the perfect time to buy FTSE 100 shares

first_img Alan Oscroft | Friday, 19th June, 2020 Forget a Cash ISA, I say this is the perfect time to buy FTSE 100 shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The UK inflation rate dropped to just 0.5% in May, and it could go even lower. I’d even say there’s a possibility of deflation, which would be a very rare phenomenon. In a low-inflation economic environment, should you invest in a Cash ISA? I’m going to explain why I think that’s a bad idea, and why the time is ripe for investing in FTSE 100 shares instead.Cash ISA rates fallingWith UK base rates super low too, the best interest you can hope to get from a standard instant access Cash ISA right now is around 0.9%. You can do better if you tie your cash up for a fixed period. But you’re looking at a five-year commitment to earn just 1.2% per year. 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…My usual complaint about a Cash ISA rather than FTSE 100 shares is that interest rates have been below inflation. Ironically, inflation dropping to 0.5% means today’s Cash ISA rates are actually positive in real terms. But that’s almost certainly not going to last.That 0.5% inflation rate is clearly an anomaly, a result of the Covid-19 lockdown. But as we see the lockdown increasingly eased, economic activity will improve. And even if inflation should dip even lower in the short term, it will surely get back to its long-term levels before too long. In fact, the Bank of England is tasked with achieving exactly that.FTSE 100 shares doing worseEven if current interest rates are unattractive, a top Cash ISAs will have easily beaten FTSE 100 shares so far this year. Right now, the FTSE 100 is sitting on a loss of around 17% since the start of 2020. Usually, when share prices dip, we still have dividends to keep us going. But many companies have slashed their dividends too.So why do I recommend a Stocks & Shares ISA, invested in FTSE 100 companies, ahead of a Cash ISA? And why especially right now when Cash ISAs are winning?Past crashesTo explain why, I’m going to look back at what happens after stock market crashes. This year’s lockdown-triggered crash took the FTSE down below 5,000 points. But since that low, it’s climbed by 25%.The previous low was back in February 2016, and in the following 12 months the FTSE 100 climbed by 32%. Looking further back to the banking crisis, the FTSE 100 bottomed out in March 2009. Over the next 12 months, the index rose by 57%. Those are all big gains that Cash ISA investors would have missed.Incidentally, FTSE 100 shares are now 80% higher than that 2009 low. And we’ve had a decade of dividends too, which will take it well above a doubling. Over that timescale, that’s poor by FTSE 100 standards. But it still wipes the floor with a decade of Cash ISA interest.FTSE 100 shares vs Cash ISAThat last bit is what really matters, that FTSE 100 shares beat a Cash ISA over the long term. I reckon they have to really, as companies are the only things that generate actual new wealth. And there’s really nowhere else a Cash ISA can ultimately get money from to pay its watered-down interest.And it really does look like moving to the apparent safety of a Cash ISA from FTSE 100 shares during times of stock market crisis is the exact opposite of the best move.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Bishop urges South Africans to act after rape, murder of teen Rector Belleville, IL Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME [Anglican Communion News Service] An Anglican bishop has urged South Africans to end gender-based violence after a teenage girl was brutally gang-raped, mutilated and murdered.The Rt. Rev. Raphael Hess, bishop of the Diocese of Saldanha Bay in South Africa, made the call following the attack and subsequent death of 17-year-old Anene Booysen on Feb. 3, in the town of Bredasdorp.Hess said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened and outraged by the brutal gang rape and mutilation that led to the death of Anene Booysen. We urge everyone from the local community and national level to act.”The brutal nature of her death not only horrified her local community and South Africa, but has stirred an international outcry coming so closely on the heels of the gang-rape and murder of a young woman in India in December.Gender-based violence was a key topic discussed at a meeting between Hess and senior advisers at St. Andrew parish in Cape Town. The meeting was called to reflect on a range of “important concerns facing the people of the diocese and the country.” Other topics included education and the conditions of farm workers in South Africa.In a statement issued after the meeting, Hess and his team asked a string of questions in light of the violence and “horrific murders” in the country: “Why the never-ending spiral of violence against women in our society? Why the constant rape, battering and gender-related violence?“What is happening within our families, our schools, the faith communities and other institutions of socialization that men, in particular, are not being taught to care, protect, show compassion and live in healthy relationships with women and children?”In its Diocesan Synod held in September last year, the diocese declared “gender and related matters” one of its six mission priorities.“We will confront the demons in our midst such as gender-based violence while growing in our commitment to enable our communities and members to transform their minds, hearts and behavior,” read the statement. “This will make South Africa a place in which the dignity of every person is inviolable.”The education sector is another area that was addressed. Hess and his team called on all South Africans to make education the central focus of a “new and constructive socio-political activism” and call for it to be fixed “now.”Various reports on education in South Africa have revealed a bleak picture of teaching — especially in government schools — illustrating “severe issues in the education, experience and management of education professionals.”“It is essential that everyone who cares for education declares themselves committed to a new struggle of sacrifice and service and commitment to make education work for all,” read the statement.Hess and his team also expressed their concerns for the farming industry “crisis” in the country. “As Anglicans, we hold dear the principles of justice for all, respect for human lives and every person’s right to a decent living wage,” read the statement. “In addition, we believe in the equitable sharing of the country’s wealth and resources.”In a country that has had a lot of worker protests and strikes, especially in the mining and farming sectors lately, the team acknowledged the advances made in “recent negotiations” but encouraged ongoing conversations by the sector.To this end, Hess and his team encouraged farm workers and the labor unions to “continue using legal means within the law to achieve their objectives.” Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Albany, NY An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events Submit an Event Listing In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Knoxville, TN Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Gender Justice Submit a Job Listing Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Advocacy Peace & Justice, Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Martinsville, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Washington, DC Rector Pittsburgh, PA By Bellah ZuluPosted Feb 12, 2013 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Tampa, FL 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 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI last_img read more

‘No war on migrants! No war on Iran!’

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this A militant crowd gathered outside Philadelphia City Hall on June 26 to demand “No war on migrants! No war on Iran!” While many attending represented organizations that had initiated or endorsed the rally, a significant number were individuals passing by who stopped to listen and stayed to the end.  The rally was called by Philadelphia International Action Center and the Workers’ Solidarity Network.The event drove home the connections between U.S. imperialist wars and occupations abroad and the growing number of migrants worldwide. The U.S. government’s nationalistic policies destabilize countries, causing increased migration of workers fleeing poverty and violence, at the same time that the Trump administration tweets out racist threats against workers who have migrated to the U.S. simply to seek a living.The majority of people in the U.S. and around the world oppose the endless U.S. wars and threats against oil-rich regions, this time against Iran.Speakers also addressed the concentration camp conditions experienced by migrant children at the Texas border, as well as by over 2 million people imprisoned in U.S. jails.The rally was chaired by Ted Kelly of Workers World Party, who opened by leading the crowd in chants.  Speakers included Ron Joseph from LILAC/Abolish Ice, Judy Greenspan from the Bay Area branch of WWP, Yahné Ndgo with Black Alliance for Peace, Marta Guttenberg with Jewish Voice for Peace, and Betsey Piette with the International Action Center.  Also speaking was Jocelyn Velázquez, spokesperson of Jornada Se Acabaron las Promesas (No More Promises). Her organization has been leading resistance to the imposition of the Fiscal Control Board’s control over Puerto Rico, begun by President Barack Obama in 2016 under the PROMESA Law. The FCB has imposed a dictatorship that exerts authority over all Puerto Rican institutions, including the colonial government.In addition to the two organizations that called the event, endorsers included Black Alliance for Peace; Black and Brown Workers’ Cooperative; Brandywine Peace Community; Coalición Fortaleza Latina; FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants & Refugees Everywhere); Jewish Voice for Peace, Philly;  International Concerned Family & Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal; LILAC; MOVE Organization; Organizing Committee for a Maoist-Communist Party; Party for Socialism & Liberation; Philadelphia Camden Boricua Committee; Philly ANSWER; Philly Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions; Philly Don’t Orchestrate Apartheid; Philly Socialist; and Workers World Party/Mundo Obrero.last_img read more

Soil Testing is First Step in Pasture Improvement

first_img SHARE By Gary Truitt – Apr 5, 2016 Soil Testing is First Step in Pasture Improvement SHARE Facebook Twitter Jim-CamberatoProducers thinking about pasture improvement should start by testing the soil, says Jim Camberato, Purdue Extension soil fertility specialist. “Establishing proper pH and adequate nutrient levels in the root zone is important for the health and productivity of the plants growing there,” he said.The first step in soil testing is collecting samples. Camberato recommends that farmers use a soil probe to take 15-20 core specimens from a sampling area encompassing no more than 15-20 acres. Each sampling area should be determined on the basis of common characteristics – including soil type, location and management history.Don’t skimp on samples“Soil analysis and lime and fertilizer recommendations are only as good as the samples,” Camberato said. “Do not skimp on the number of cores or increase the size of the sample area represented.”Soil core samples should measure 1 inch in diameter and 4 inches deep in established pastures and 8 inches deep for soils that are to be planted. Producers should crush and mix the soil cores well in a clean plastic container and send a 1-pint sample to a commercial laboratory for nutrient testing.Camberato said it is important for farmers to get a basic analysis of pH, organic matter, cation exchange capacity, plant available phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Micronutrient analysis is not usually necessary for pasture sampling. Camberato recommends that producers go to the Purdue Extension website to find a list of certified soil testing labs.Certified soil testing labs will usually report recommendations from the analysis for an additional fee. Farmers who are unable to interpret the analysis themselves can consult Purdue Extension’s Forage Field Guide or ask an expert for help, Camberato said.Phosphorus or potassiumBased on the soil test results, Camberato said producers may need to apply phosphorus or potassium in-season or shortly before seeding. If a pasture’s pH level is unfavorable, lime should be applied to the pasture as soon as possible.Camberato said now may be the best time for fertilizing worn-down pastures.“Fertilizer prices are relatively low this season, so it may be a good time to take care of pastures that have low P and K levels,” he said.He had special advice for producers who plan to establish new pastures. “It is beneficial to establish adequate pH levels with lime and adequate phosphorus and potassium levels with fertilizer before seeding so that as much of the root zone can be affected as possible,” he said.

Frogs storm back to beat Tennessee

first_imgFacebook printAt half time, the Frogs were shooting 25.8% from the field, had 8 turnovers, allowed the Volunteers to hit eight 3-pointers, and trailed 41-27.Luckily for head coach Trent Johnson and his squad, the tables would turn in the second half.Using a series of runs sparked by Malique Trent, Chris Washburn, and Brandon Parrish, the TCU men’s basketball team Saturday,came back and outscored Tennessee 48-22 in the second half to win 75-63 on Saturday.The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Horned Frogs. In the postgame press conference, it was clear that a weight had been lifted off the team’s shoulders.“Coming into this game, we felt like this was a need-to-win game,” said junior forward Chris Washburn. “The way everything’s been going, we’ve lost 5 straight games, it was a need-to-win.”“Sometimes people question our confidence — sometimes we question our confidence,” junior forward Brandon Parrish said. “A game like this gets team morale back up going into conference play.”Washburn and Parrish were key players in the Frogs’ comeback. They each tallied 14 points, and Washburn added 9 rebounds — six of them offensive — and 3 steals.Karviar Shepherd also had a good game for TCU with 13 points and 6 boards.Still, it was sophomore guard Malique Trent that provided the biggest boost for TCU. The Frogs were 23 points better than their opposition with Trent on the floor, and he played every minute of the second half.He led the team with 15 points, including a highlight-reel dunk through contact with 55 seconds remaining. The dunk even impressed his teammates.“A beautiful way to close the show,” Parrish said with a smile after the game. “He’s got some bounce.”“Malique’s a really aggressive guard,” Washburn said. “He opens up a lot of stuff, because he’s always in the lane, and defenses have to respect that. When he’s on the court, we’re a much more aggressive team.”While the offensive highlights were plentiful, Johnson said his team’s effort on defense was the difference in the second half.“The second half, we had great energy,” Johnson said. “We did a good job of chasing them off the 3-point line and making them bounce it.”The contrast between Tennessee’s first and second-half shooting statistics was startling. The Volunteers were 8-16 in the first half from beyond the arc but were an ice-cold 0-15 after halftime.“They made tough shots in the first half,” Washburn said. “They had the same looks in the second half, and they just didn’t go down — but that’s basketball.”In the first half, there were no signs that either team would struggle offensively.Scoring came fast and easy for both teams after some opening jitters. Chauncey Collins hit two 3-pointers in the first six minutes, but UT’s three triples kept it close. The Volunteers largely stayed away from challenging the Frogs’ interior defense, while TCU capitalized on offensive rebounds and trips to the line. That all changed as TCU suddenly found themselves both unable to solve Tennessee’s zone and went cold from the field, while the Volunteers found their stroke from deep. The Frogs scored only 11 points in the final 13:55 of the half, which allowed Tennessee to hold the halftime lead. Kevin Punter had 15 points at the half for the Vols, and it seemed like nothing was breaking TCU’s way. But TCU opened up the second half with a 10-0 run fueled by 3-pointers from Trent and Parrish. The Frogs chipped away at Tennessee’s lead until Trent’s free throws with 7:59 remaining gave the purple and white a 56-55 lead.TCU would never trail from that point on, and the Schollmaier Arena crowd was on their feet for the majority of the second half as the Frogs slowly pulled away.Both teams exited the game with 10-11 records. TCU is still undefeated against the SEC under Trent Johnson, and the Frogs notched their first win in nine tries under Johnson against Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes, who formerly coached at Texas.The game was played as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge, which is in its 3rd year.TCU can’t afford to celebrate the victory too long. As Johnson noted, a tougher test is on the horizon.“Our reward for beating this team is we have a day off tomorrow, then we gotta go out and practice hard and play the number one team in the country in Norman, Oklahoma,” Johnson said.Tipoff for that game against the Sooners is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

A bench of Justice B V Nagarathna and Justice Ravi V Hosmani will be pronouncing the order. Senior Advocate K G Raghavan appearing for a law aspirant had submitted that “The reservation is in violation of Article 19 (1) (g) and is violative of Article 14, he said there is no rational basis for making a distinction between Karnataka and students from outside”. Further, when the admission process had started from January, can this amendment of April 27 affect the admission process, he asked. He claimed that the only reason for this amendment is that law schools in some other states have made reservations for their students. “Is this a sufficient reason for making reservations for Karnataka Students?” he asked. Raghvan also submitted that the Bar Council of India, Bar Council of India Trust and Society formed by the trust, all of them have created the University and it was established under the statute of the State. It is a creation of the Bar Council with the blessing of the state. “It is not like the Bangalore University or Karnataka Law University or Karnataka University.” It is not a private body but an autonomous body he submitted. Raghavan also questioned the intent as made out by the state in its statement of objections to pass the amendment. “The State seems to suggest that this amendment became necessary to ensure equality within the state among the socially and backward class of people. As a populist statement it is quite attractive, but it needs to be Constitutionally valid too.” In March, the Karnataka State Assembly passed the National Law School Of India (Amendment) Act, 2020, which received the Karnataka Governor’s assent on April 27. As per this amendment, NLSIU should reserve horizontally twenty-five percent of seats for ‘students of Karnataka’. The amendment inserts the following proviso in Section 4 of the National Law School of India Act :- “Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act and the regulations made thereunder, the school shall reserve horizontally twenty-five percent of seats for students of Karnataka.” As per the explanation of this section, “student of Karnataka” means a student who has studied in any one of the recognized educational institutions in the State for a period of not less than ten years preceding to the qualifying examination.” The bench has repeatedly during the hearings questioned the intent of the state government in introducing the legislation. “You are wanting to benefit students who are well placed. Students who really require a reservation in Karnataka, you (state) are not giving,” has been the view expressed by the bench. The Bar Council of India has also approached the court challenging the amendment Amendment Act.Reports about previous hearing may be read here :Object Of NLSIU Domicile Reservation To Ensure That A Portion Of Students Stay Back To Serve The State : Karnataka AG Tells HC NLSIU Not A State University; Govt Funding ‘Very Minuscule’ : University Tells Karnataka HC’Domicile Reservation Goes Against Objective Of National Law School’: Bar Council Of India Tells Karnataka HC’It Will Only Help Students Of Elite Schools’: Karnataka HC Asks State To Clarify Who Will Benefit From NLSIU Domicile Reservation Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
