I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Another stock market crash could be around the corner! This is what I’m doing with my ISAcenter_img Global share markets remain quite resilient despite growing tension over a second coronavirus wave. Things can change in a blink of an eye though, as late February’s sell-off illustrated perfectly. The chances of another stock market crash remain considerable.UK share indices have rallied in recent weeks following the gradual easing of lockdown measures across the globe. The FTSE 100, for example, is up around 1,300 points from the multi-year troughs hit during the worst of the recent market crash. However, recent news flow on the spread of Covid-19 suggests the phased unwinding of quarantine measures could be knocked on the head.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…In Germany, the coronavirus reproduction rate climbed back over the critical 1 marker over the weekend. It’s led to speculation that quarantine easing has been both too soon and too extensive. Beijing is battling a second wave of the virus after earlier being designated ‘Covid-19 free’.Infection rates in many US states continue to balloon too, with California on Sunday recording its biggest spike in one-day cases since the crisis began. Do all roads seem to be leading to another stock market crash then?Low risk, bad returnThe total social, economic and geopolitical costs of Covid-19 remain unknown. They’re likely to be feverishly speculated on for months (and probably years) to come. What has already become clear is that the consequences on all three of these fronts threaten to be considerable.So what’s the average share investor to do in this environment? Would they be better served by locking their money up in lower-risk investments like cash accounts or bonds?On the plus side, assets like these provide a guaranteed return. They also, of course, remove the stress that short-term financial market volatility creates. But, on the other hand, investors can expect to make only some truly-pathetic returns on their cash here.Research shows the best-paying Cash ISA on the market offers a rate of 1.1%. Over the space of, say, 20 years, someone who invested £300 a month would have made just £80,400 on their money. Compare that to the £170,700-£215,500 which someone owing a Stocks & Shares ISA could be expected to make over the same timeframe.Don’t fear another stock market crashThis is based on studies showing how long-term share investors can make returns of 8-10% on their money. It’s a calculation which is particularly important to remember right now.Why? Well it underlines how the key to successful investing isn’t to worry about temporary share price turbulence. The most successful investors buy shares and hold them for many years, possible decades. Locking your chequebook up, or selling your stocks whenever a major economic or political event occurs, can set you back considerably.Remember that volatility on financial markets is nothing new. The coronavirus crisis is a new problem for economists and politicians to battle. But history has shown the most successful investors continue to buy stocks in bad times as well as the good.It’s why I plan to continue buying shares for my ISA, despite the prospect of another stock market crash.

Lee sent a letter to his diocese on Feb. 14 announcing his intention to step down in August 2020. He has called for the election of his successor. The text of press release about his announcement follows.Bishop Jeffrey D. Lee announced today that he will retire as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago in August 2020, and called for the election of his successor.“When I reflect on the work we have done together, I am most grateful for our shared success in focusing the work of my staff and the diocese’s leaders on congregational vitality,” Lee wrote in a letter to the diocese. “As you have often heard me say, the only excuse for something like a diocese is to foster thriving congregations in local communities using the best data and resources we can muster. Together, through prayer and song and fierce conversations, we have accomplished that cultural shift, and it is bearing fruit across our region.”Lee was ordained in February 2008 to lead a diocese that comprises 33,000 people in more than 120 congregations northern and west central Illinois. His tenure included the reunification of the Dioceses of Chicago and Quincy and a major renovation of St. James Commons, the diocesan headquarters in downtown Chicago, that created a venue for retreats and meetings called the Nicholas Center.Under Lee, the diocese conducted an examination of the legacy of slavery in its common life, and supported the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender queer Christians in the sacramental and ministerial life of the church and policies to stem the tide of gun violence in the region and across the country. Through advocacy and personal support, members of the diocese also worked against the persecution and marginalization of immigrants and refugees.Planning for the election of Lee’s successor began last night when Bishop Todd Ousley, the Episcopal Church’s bishop for pastoral development, held a teleconference with the diocese’s Standing Committee, which will oversee the search and transition process.“In my remaining time as your bishop, I intend to do all I can to advance the excellent work of the Taskforce on Hispanic/Latino Mission and Ministry Sustainability, to forge a new partnership between the diocese and Episcopal Charities, and to attract energetic, talented clergy who want to join us in fostering vital congregations,” Lee wrote. “Finally, I hope to leave a gift for the future vitality of God’s ministry in this place by increasing the diocese’s program endowment and supporting the capacity of congregations to raise capital funds.”The Standing Committee will inform the clergy and people of the diocese about the search process that will soon begin, Lee wrote. The process typically includes the formation of search and transition committees, the development of a diocesan profile, a period of nominations, the announcement of a slate of nominees, and an election in 2020 on a date to be determined.“As we travel together toward the place where our paths will diverge, I will cherish each remaining opportunity to celebrate the sacraments with you and to pray together for a time of transition filled with hope and trust in God’s never-failing goodness,” Lee wrote.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Whitewater has announced a redeveloped website for its in memoriam and tribute giving service Our Lasting Tribute. The new site is intended to showcase the ease with which charities can set up in memoriam funds and the benefits that can be delivered.The service is already in use by charities such as the NSPCC, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Asthma UK, Meningitis Trust, RNLI and St Dunstans. According to Whitewater, several charities have achieved returns on investment of 15:1 or more. The site does not take a commission on donations.“We are convinced,” said Mark Roper, Managing Director of Whitewater, “that if more charities knew about the truly extraordinary ROIs being achieved by many of our clients, then more charities would be strategically committed to this form of fundraising.” He anticipates that the new site will help quadruple the number of charities using the service over the next two years. “A successful tribute fund can inspire people to raise large sums of money for their chosen charity”, he added. “The platform provides a completely branded environment for a charity – giving them the chance to manage tribute fund raising.”Whitewater intend that the site becomes an active community site for In Memoriam fundraisers with video tutorials, a forum, and a blog by In memoriam expert, Steve Andrews.www.ourlastingtribute.com New version of Our Lasting Tribute site launches Howard Lake | 30 March 2010 | Newslast_img read more

Workers World Party statement: U.S. hands off Venezuela!

first_imgWorkers World Party calls on the movement here in the U.S. to unite in the streets to defend the elected Nicolás Maduro government of Venezuela against Washington’s blatant coup attempt, aimed at rolling back the gains made by the Bolivarian Revolution. This aggression is an attack on working and oppressed peoples everywhere.Venezuela’s sovereignty is at stake as the Trump administration has formally anointed a small right-wing grouping with unknown “leaders” in Venezuela, calling it the “legitimate” government. This refusal to recognize the will of the Venezuelan people, who have consistently elected leaders committed to the path of independence from Washington, is imperialist arrogance taken to its height. It is also a clear threat that U.S. imperialism intends to intervene openly to overthrow the Venezuelan government and install its own puppets, as it tried to do in 1961 with the unsuccessful Bay of Pigs invasion against revolutionary Cuba.In the 21st century alone U.S. imperialism has lied to the population here, inventing pretexts to bomb, invade and overthrow governments in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, committing war crimes and murdering millions of people. It has killed other hundreds of thousands in Syria through subversion, sabotage and bombing. These costly U.S. wars devoured hundreds of billions of dollars and created tens of millions of refugees abroad, even as public services here are starved for funds.  There is no doubt that were this latest imperialist intervention in Venezuela to succeed, it would increase the tide — and the suffering — of economic and political refugees who already are fleeing repressive governments installed in Central America with Washington’s blessing. Let’s be in the streets to say: No more coups! No more regime change! Hands off Venezuela!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Sure the beach is calling and mountains, too. But, folks, time is ticking down to the deadline to enter pets in the 2018 Pet Photo Contest sponsored annually by the Humane Society of Pike County.Midnight on July 31 is the deadline for entry and Donna Brockmann, HSPC president, said no bones about it, “We’re begging pet owners to enter their animals.”“We only have 19 entries and the clock is winding down,” Brockmann said. “I understand that people tend to wait until the last minute to do things like this. But that makes things stressful. The Pet Photo Contest is a huge fundraiser for the HSPC’ spay/neuter and feral cat programs and those programs are so vital to reducing the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Pike County.” “Usually, the contest comes down to cats and dogs but any animal could win. A matched pair of mules won one year and they were popular winners.”Tiffany Howington’s cute, but not so cuddly, pig named Bits, as in bacon ’n bits,  has been entered. The word around town is Bits is going whole hog in its efforts to be on the cover of the 2018 Pet Photo Calendar.“I value what everybody does for the animals in our county,” Brockmann said. “We all have a piece of the puzzle. Each person who enters a pet in the Pet Photo Contest is adding a piece to the puzzle. Working together we can greatly reduce the number of abandoned, abused and neglected animals in Pike County.”The HSPC encourages all pet owners to add their piece to the puzzle and make the 2018 Pike County Pet Photo Contest the biggest and best ever.

He’s dining on watermelon and blueberries and dreaming of the being on the cover shot on the 2018 Pet Photo Calendar. Entries in the annual fundraiser are slow coming in and the sponsoring Humane Society of Pike County encourages all pet owners to enter their pets in the fundraiser for the HSPC’s spay/neuter program that helps reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats in the county. By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content The Pike Animal Shelter is not yet a year in operation and already there are more dogs and cats at the shelter than there is room to house them. That puts an exclamation point on the need — the necessity — to have dogs and cats spayed/neutered, Brockmann said.“And, too, the Pet Photo Contest is such a darling contest,” she said. “Any pet can be entered and every pet that is entered will be on the HSPC’s Pet Photo Calendar. Some pet owners enter photos in memory of their pets and that is a lovely gesture.”A dog named Sugar has taken the early lead in the voting, with 200 votes. But the voting will continue until mid-August. It’s entries that are greatly needed now, Brockmann said. By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies…last_img read more
