Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Many Britons could be looking to retire early as the appeal of the 9-to-5 starts to wear off, especially given the recent economic and health implications of the Covid-19 pandemic. But the issue is more than just retiring early. It’s also being able to afford the lifestyle you would normally live. So, how might you get there?Stocks and Shares ISAsISAs were introduced in 1999. Currently, there’s a maximum subscription allowance of £20,000 per adult per tax year. Individuals can divide this in across a Cash ISA, a Stocks and Shares ISA, a Lifetime ISA (maximum of £4,000) or an Innovative Finance 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…I believe every UK resident should learn more about the different types of ISAs available to them, with an emphasis on Stocks and Shares ISAs, which offer tax-efficient benefits for investors. Individuals can usually invest in three ways:With a lump sum only, from a year-end bonus, for example. This method gives the portfolio a longer time for growth during the year. For those with irregular income, an initial lump sum, followed by top-up payments works best.With regular (usually monthly) payments, which can be set up automatically by direct debit.How to pay for retirementThe main mistake most people make is not knowing how they will pay for retirement. One suggestion is that you’ll need between half and two-thirds of the salary you earned before retirement. A safe range would be between £24,000 and £28,000 a year. This amount assumes that you don’t have any mortgage or rental payments to make in retirement.Let’s assume that starting at age 65, you’ll need £28,000 per year and you expect to live for another 25 years after retirement. Let’s also leave your potential State Pension or any other private pension income aside for now.One way to calculate how much in savings you’d need is to multiply £28,000 by 25. The result is £700,000. This calculation further assumes that the £700,000 will earn no interest income.In other words, if you’d like to finance your retirement fully with your savings, simply multiply the amount you’d need per year by 25.You may also be entitled to the State Pension or have other streams of income.Becoming a millionaire by retirementMy Motley Fool colleagues point out that the stock market returns about 6% to 8% annually on average. An important part of that return comes from dividends.Research also shows that investors who purchase dividend-growth stocks and reinvest the dividends to buy more shares are likely to see considerable growth in their savings.Let’s assume that you’re now aged 30 with only £100 in savings and that you plan to retire at 65.You decide to invest that £100 in a FTSE 100 tracker fund now and make an additional £7,000 of contributions annually at the start of each year. You have 35 years to invest. The average annual return is 7%, compounded once a year. At the end of 35 years, the total amount saved becomes £1,036,462.In retirement, you can simply draw down, say, 4% of your portfolio for your expenses, which should theoretically be covered by your investment returns on the portfolio holdings. If those long-run averages hold, you shouldn’t need to work again and can live off your investments.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 09: Chris Ashton of England, celebrates after scoring a try during the QBE International match between England and Argentina at Twickenham Stadium on November 9, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by David Rogers – RFU/The RFU Collection via Getty Images) 3. Real competition for places starting to developCertain positions in this England squad are starting to look very healthy. In the front row Joe Marler’s scrummaging demons were nowhere to be seen as he outplayed the vaunted Argentine pack, and with Alex Corbisiero and Mako Vunipola both in the mix, that side of the scrum is well catered for. Next to them, Dylan Hartley was superb and will put pressure on Tom Youngs, while the line-out went well under the stewardship of Courtney Lawes, meaning Geoff Parling’s place is perhaps no longer as assured as it was. Ben Morgan looked back to form after Billy Vunipola’s stellar performance last weekend, and when you consider the players still to return from injury, England can be confident they have a good, solid squad.4. Why was anyone questioning Robshaw?There was much speculation about whether Chris Robshaw would be England captain and, indeed, if he even merited his place in this England side. Two games into the autumn series, and Lancaster’s decision to stick with his man has been more than vindicated. Robshaw is not blessed with star quality, and is not the shouty, aggressive type of captain, but he leads by example and on Saturday that example was exemplary. He made twenty tackles in total, and played his usual linkman role superbly, completing nine passes.Lifting his level: Chris Ashton celebrates another England try5. Ashton better… but still not good enough A flamboyant prize, but not a flamboyant performance: Chris Robshaw leads the celebrations for EnglandBy Jamie HosieTwo from two for England and they’ve hit the targets many would have set before the autumn series started. Despite the results, however, there is still plenty to be improved upon.On a strange day at Twickenham, the 31-12 scoreline against Argentina suggested a dominant performance that did not entirely reflect the reality of the game.1. An eighty-minute performance is neededFor forty minutes, everything was rosy for England. There was fluency, cohesion and an attacking intent that had been lacking against Australia, and a 24-6 scoreline at the break, with three tries under their belt, was a fair reflection of that. After half-time, however, things could not have been different. They failed to score another point until the 77th minute, and Argentina even looked at times like they were in with a chance of stealing an unlikely comeback win. If England are to have any chance of beating the All Blacks next weekend, they will need to put together a complete eighty-minute performance, not just forty.Saints alive: All of England’s Northampton boys together2. The Northampton ConnectionFor years, the backbone of the England team has been made up of Leicester Tigers players. On Saturday, however, there was not a single Tiger in the starting line-up and instead, there were five of their great local rivals, Northampton Saints. Club connections help an international side gel, and the five Saints all performed superbly to drive England to an impressive lead they should have consolidated further. Hartley and Lawes were particularly impressive. A try, an assist, 83 metres made and three offloads… on paper Chris Ashton’s performance was of the highest quality. While there were some nice touches, there was still too much average fare and poor mistakes for a winger on the international stage. He butchered a one-on-one in the first half to be held up over the line, and was stepped far too easily by Cordero in the second period. He may well be retained to play the All Blacks next week – that is not the time to throw Wade in – but after that, his place in the team may well be at stake.Jamie Hosie (@jhosie43)
Follow the news on United States News Reporters Without Borders called on US officials to urgently say why they are still holding Sami al-Haj, an assistant cameraman of the Qatar-based TV station Al-Jazeera, at the US naval base in Guantanamo, Cuba, nine months after his arrest. “It is quite irregular for the US authorities to refuse to tell the journalist’s family and friends what the charges are against him,” the organisation said in a letter to US attorney-general John Ashcroft (photo). “It is now in their interest to break their silence in the case,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard, “Without questioning why he was arrested, we think this continued silence is especially unfortunate because it could be seen as an intention to harass Al-Jazeera, which has already been the target of US State Department pressure.” Since Al-Haj’s arrest on 15 December last, the station has tried through diplomatic channels to get news of him and obtain his release. It said on 16 September that the US embassy in Doha (Qatar) had promised in June to ask for details from the State Department about his detention. Since then the station had heard nothing and its letters to the embassy had not been answered. Al-Haj (photo), who is Sudanese, had been working for Al-Jazeera since last October as an assistant cameraman. He was sent to cover the US military operation in Afghanistan and was arrested in southern Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border. He has sent messages to his wife saying he is being held at Guantanamo. The station said he had lost his passport in 2000 and that it may have been fraudulently used by other people. About 600 prisoners of 43 nationalities, all suspected of having links with Al-Qaeda, which is blamed for the attacks on 11 September last year in New York and Washington, are being held at Guantanamo. Last October 3, US secretary of state Colin Powell asked Qatari ruler Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, as Al-Jazeera’s main shareholder, to see that the station changed its allegedly biased reporting of events. A month later, the US military bombed the station’s offices in Kabul, saying Al-Qaeda people were reportedly hiding there. Despite promises to the station, the US authorities have never investigated the incident. Al-Jazeera has several times broadcast video recordings of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin-Laden.

Wake-up call to firms as ageism cost soarsOn 1 May 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. The failure to tackle ageism is costing the UK economy £31bn a year,according to a report commissioned by the Employers Forum on Age last week. The report, Ageism Too Costly to Ignore, found that the cost of ageism hasrisen by £5bn since 1998. RayBaker, chair of the EFA and B&Q’s employment and diversity controller,warns that the report sounded a clear wake-up call for employers and thegovernment. He said, “This is another reason to ensure that ageism isn’tover-looked by employers.” The report reveals that in the past two years the number of people aged50-64 who are not in work and are not seeking work has grown by 125,000. The EFA is urging the Government to introduce a flexible retirement policyas pension regulations prevent workers older than 65 drawing a pension and asalary at the same time. The report claims that by introducing flexible retirement policies, GDPcould be raised by at least £50bn a year. Baker added, “It’s vital that we have flexible retirement policies inplace to allow people to continue working well past 65. Many older workers needemployment because of financial necessity. A report of our older workers in theearly 1990s found that 56 per cent still had dependents.” Other recommendations in the report include raising employers’ awareness ofthe business benefits of older workers and the need for the Government to playa part in increasing the employability of these workers by investing in theirskills. “Lifelong learning must be part of the business agenda,” saidBaker. By 2025 for every two people employed there is likely to be one person olderthan 50 who is either retired or inactive. By Karen Higginbottom Comments are closed.

Michael Turdo, commanding officer of the cutter Escanaba. “Escanaba seized over 6 tons of cocaine worth an estimated $202 million during the interdiction of five suspected drug smuggling vessels.”The Coast Guard, along with US and allied partner agencies, has increased its presence in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Basin as part of its Western Hemisphere Strategy. During at-sea interdictions of these known drug transit zones, a suspect vessel is initially located and tracked by allied military or law enforcement personnel. The interdictions, including the actual boarding, are led and conducted by US Coast Guard personnel.

IS IT TRUE that it is a darn shame that the Ivy Tech nursing students are not coming downtown because 1,500 students per day could be transformational?…that is the kind of thing that could have spawned a residential revival sufficient to support basic retails needs like groceries, pharmacies, and a gas station?…the visions of the 1960s Fantus study could have had a chance if the original plans for the medical campus had been realized?…this is the sort of thing that could have given downtown Evansville a shot in the arm nearly 60 years ago?…it will be interesting to see if this good vision is allowed to skip away again?…when one spends themselves into oblivion for fun and games, the funds to support substance are often squandered on short term thrills? IS IT TRUE that Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke came out with a glowing endorsement of subsidized public housing in the 2015 Annual Report of the Evansville Housing Authority?…the Mayor touted the accomplishments of providing roughly 5,000 rental subsidies in the City of Evansville?…that seems like a quite large number of places that qualify for federally subsidized residences?…Mayor Winnecke also proudly announced the kick off of phase one of a series of projects that will spend $31.7 Million to refurbish some of Evansville’s public housing projects?…extensive fix ups for the aging and shabby Kennedy and Buckner Towers which happen to be located right next to the new subsidized Doubletree Hotel? …when completed either one of these properties could become student housing for IU Medical students?IS IT TRUE if one adds up the $21M handout to the hotel and the $31.7M for public housing projrcts that makes $52.7M taxpayer dollars directed into downtown Evansville?…that excludes the handouts squandered by former Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel down at the McCurdy Hotel to a political crony from Indianapolis?…the people of Evansville of course do not own so much as a single share in any of these handout fuels projects? IS IT TRUE if you want to view Mayor Winnecke 2015 letter to members of the Evansville Housing Board of Directors please click the Annual Reports section provided below and go to page two (2) and you will see Mayor Winnecke letter the board …the Mayor stated in this letter that “we continue to partner with the EHA on several projects necessary to construct the new convention hotel’s parking facility and the IU School of Medicine”. …he also added that ” as the EHA property Kennedy Towers will be a great next door neighbor to both, it is critical to maintain an open, working relationship beneficial to all involved” is an extremely interesting statement? …we wonder what the Mayor is trying to say here?IS IT TRUE that Kennedy Towers is presently undergoing some extensive renovations? …that some long tern residents of Kennedy Towers who receives section 8 vouchers have been moved to other EHA facilities during renovations? …we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that some of the long term Kennedy Towers tenants will not be allowed to move back into their old apartments once renovations are completed? …we wonder if this decision will pave the way for IU Medical students to be able to rent apartments at the newly renovated Kennedy Towers? …outline in blue is the link to Mayor Winnecke letter to the EHA Board of Directors— 2015-EHA-Annual-Report?
