On Sunday, Gordon Brown’s disclosure that he asked the police to look into whether his phone was hacked by the News of the World topped its agenda all day. And yesterday the attack of foot-in-mouth disease that afflicted Sky Sports’ Andy Gray and Richard Keys – during which they saw fit to question whether a female referee’s assistant might need the intricacies of the offside rule pointing out to her – also headed the news list (at least until the Moscow airport bombing knocked it from the airwaves). The interesting point about these stories is that they both involve companies controlled by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who owns the News of the World and covets 61 per cent of the chunk of Sky that isn’t already in his clutches.So why has Sky News turned on its brethren with such gusto? Could it be that the channel wants to prove just how impartial it is, and not at all a threat to media plurality? Not so says Sky News editor Chris Birkett: “These are the stories of the day. We’ve covered the phone hacking scandal from day one. We play it straight.”BEST INVESTMENTTHE Capitalist has been given an exclusive sneak peak at the Investment Special from this Thursday’s Prospect magazine.The indefatigable Jon Moulton (bottom), chairman of Better Capital and sometime City A.M. celebrity judge, comes out with a particularly fine zinger.In a section entitled “Win some, lose some,” which asks City-types to talk about their best and worst investments, Moulton quips: “My wife sadly declined, with unusual vigour, to be nominated in either category.”Also featured in the section is investment fund manager Nicola Horlick, who yesterday spoke about her plans to make a staggering 25 films in just three years in an ambitious £2m project called Derby Street Films. After the demise of the UK Film Council, any investment in our film industry is to be applauded. Let’s just hope it ranks among her best, rather than her worst, investments.BROWN’S WEIGHT IN HAGGISLondon’s famous Scottish restaurant, Boisdale, has devised an interesting way of promoting its Burns Supper. What could add to the culinary experience of munching on a sack of sheep offal? Why, of course, it is the knowledge that the amount of the stuff Boisdale expects to sell will more or less exactly match the weight of former Prime Minister Gordon Brown (250lbs, apparently, bottom, left) although whether he agreed to come into the restaurant for a weigh-in is unclear). Prices range from £39.50 for a three-course meal to £59.50 for a five-course.ACCOUNTANTS’ BALLIn festive merriment of another kind, accountants at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), not usually renowned for their sense of humour, swapped their suits for flamboyant costumes for their annual pantomime. This year’s show – a performance of Pinocchio at the West End’s Peacock Theatre – even featured an impromptu cameo from PwC partner Leo Johnson. The dame – Mama Macaroni – was played by Dave Gironi, a manager in PwC’s finance team, who spent the performance pining for a date with Pinnochio’s dad, tax manager Phil Richardson.The firm is giving away 7,000 tickets to children from inner city schools and charities for the eight performances.WINE WARS RAGEThe Capitalist has always questioned the value of having two Corney andBarrow wine bars within staggering distance of each other in the heart of insurance land (Lime Street and Fenchurch Avenue). The bars surround the Lloyds building, where many an insurance boy can be seen with pink shirt, enlarged jowls, and file under arm.Always at the top of our game, we can now reveal that the Lime St Corney’s has vanished, to be replaced, according to smart green posters in the dusty window, by “a new wine bar for the city,” One Under Lime. An underwriter who spends most of his time in Lloyds the rest frequenting the local bars (no jowls, but has a file) described the vanished Lime St Corney’s as a “fleapit” compared with its Fenchurch Avenue counterpart. One Under Lime will be run by a group called Aventine, reportedly on behalf of Lloyds. We wish them all the best of luck in the over-priced Pinot Grigio war.

Worries over price pressures heighten

Official data released tomorrow will show whether inflation has moved further upwards from its 28-month high of 4.4 per cent in February.Factory gate inflation data out last week showed an annualised rate of 5.4 per cent — its highest since October 2008.Producer input prices surged 3.7 per cent compared to February, rising 14.6 per cent above levels from March last year.“The factory gate price data tally with our business survey data, which showed a record increase in March,” said economist Chris Williamson of Markit.“Worse may be yet to come, as oil prices have since hit a record high in sterling terms and supply chain disruptions from the Japanese earthquake could also drive up prices for certain highly sought-after components,” Williamson said.Bank of England governor Mervyn King has warned that consumer price index (CPI) inflation could hit five per cent this year, as the squeeze on households tightens. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Sharelast_img read more

Forget Bitcoin and the Cash ISA! I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares now to get rich and retire early Ignore Bitcoin. Forget the Cash ISA. These are not the best ways to build long-term wealth for your retirement. I believe that building a balanced portfolio of cheap FTSE 100 shares is much better. Especially if you buy at moments like these, when FTSE 100 shares are available at relatively low valuations.Investing for retirement is a long-term job. It should take most of your working life. That means 40 years or more. Over such a term, today’s stock market volatility will look like a blip. In fact, you can make it work in your favour.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…The way to do that is to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares, with the aim of holding for the long term. Thanks to the stock market crash, you can pick up top companies at bargain prices, and simply wait for them to recover.Markets will recover, history shows they always do. They will do it again, despite the unprecedented pandemic. It may take time, but share prices will pick up in the longer run.I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares todayI wish I could be so confident about crypto-currency Bitcoin. Frankly, I’ve no idea how that is going to perform. Up one week, down the next, with little rhyme or reason. Right now, it stands at around $9,200. If it tops $10,000, as it may at some point, it will trigger another flurry of excitement.That will bring out all the self-proclaimed experts claiming Bitcoin is heading for $100,000, or that magical one million dollars. More people will get sucked in, for fear of missing out. Yet Bitcoin still has next-to-no practical uses. It is merely a speculative tool. I do hold one Bitcoin, bought when it was much cheaper. Nowadays, I’d rather buy cheap FTSE 100 shares than costly cryptos.Cash is a disaster zone, quite frankly. Right now, the average easy-access Cash ISA pays just 0.45%, according to Moneyfacts. With the Bank of England set to keep interest rates low for years, that is not going to improve. It might fall further, if base rates go negative.I’d shun Bitcoin and the Cash ISAWhile everybody needs a pot of easy-access cash to cover three to six months of spending in an emergency, you don’t want more than that sitting in the bank earning lousy interest.That is why your long-term wealth should go into the stock market. Now is a big opportunity to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares, before they recover. If markets fall further, as they may, do not panic. That is an opportunity to load up your portfolio at an even cheaper price. Invest every month, if you can.Then leave your money in the market for the long term, and reinvest all of your dividends for growth. This strategy makes more sense than gambling on Bitcoin, or letting your money die a slow death in a Cash ISA. I reckon that buying cheap FTSE 100 shares today is a much better way to get rich and retire early.

This is how I’d get rich by following George Clason George Clason’s best-selling book The Richest Man in Babylon was quite a sensation when it was first published in 1926. It’s set in ancient Babylon, thousands of years BCE. But the common sense recommendations on how to get rich are still relevant today. That’s why millions of people working for banks and insurance companies have been reading it ever since. In my view, the recommendations George Clason makes are also useful for people who have £5,000 or any other amount to invest.The richest man in Babylon and his tipsArkad, the richest man in Bablylon, is the main character of these Babylonian parables. His most important principle is to save at least one tenth of his income. It might seem hard to do. But according to Arkad, it’s quite realistic as long as you control your expenses. Does it mean you wouldn’t have any money to spend for pleasure? Not necessarily, say Arkad and Clason. In some cases, you could buy the same products for far less, while enjoying better quality. For example, I used to order food online but I wasn’t happy with the quality and the prices. So, I began buying essentials from a large supermarket. As a result, my food expenses plunged by about 50%, which allowed me to set aside some cash.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…But setting aside some cash isn’t all you have to do to get rich.So, why not invest the cash?  Clason and his characters give another vital, if out-dated, tip. “Every gold piece you save is a slave to work for you. Every copper it earns is its child that also can earn for you.” In other words, make your money work for you. How? Well, some of my colleagues suggest investing in an index fund. Such funds normally pay you dividends, So, the “gold piece” earns you some “copper“. This “copper” or dividends can be reinvested back in the index fund to make you more money. How do I save without losing?This brings us to another important point. It’s a well-known fact that all investments carry some sort of risk. Even Cash ISAs do. In his book, Clason mentioned the walls that protected the Babylonians and their riches. He gave a modern example of insurance companies acting as “the walls” to protect their clients’ wealth. But remember the 2008–09 crisis. Some insurance companies failed to compensate their customers’ losses because they didn’t have enough cash to go around. The best solution to the problem is to avoid investing in companies you don’t understand. An index fund is a good solution for you to diversify risks. A great thing to do is to buy shares or the Footsie when they are near record lows. This provides you with more opportunities to profit and with fewer risks of losing your wealth.   So, how can I get rich?The best investment should also provide you with an opportunity to get a regular income. This wouldn’t just let you reinvest it, it would also improve the quality of your life. The most obvious example is buying undervalued FTSE 100 companies with a good dividend track record, I think.

Forget gold. I’d buy cheap UK shares in a second stock market crash

first_img The likelihood of a second stock market crash continues to be relatively high. Risks, such as a second wave of coronavirus, as well as political uncertainty surrounding Brexit, could weigh on investor sentiment over the coming months.Should a downturn occur, many investors may decide that less risky assets, such as gold, are more attractive than UK shares.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…However, over the long run, the returns on offer from bargain stocks in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 could significantly outperform the gold price. As such, buying them, rather than gold, could prove to be a shrewd move.A second stock market crashOnly time will tell whether indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 experience a second market crash. Risks to the economic outlook remain in place, and could negatively impact on the financial performances of a wide range of businesses. In turn, investors may become increasingly bearish, which could send UK shares lower.In such a scenario, buying gold and other less risky assets may seem to be a sound move. The precious metal has a long history as a defensive asset that’s generally performed well in periods of economic weakness.However, bargain UK shares could offer a better long-term return outlook than gold after a second market crash as a result of the precious metal’s high price. It’s breached its record high this year, which suggests there may be more limited scope for capital growth than there has been in recent years. And, with investor sentiment likely to improve over the long run as fiscal and monetary policy stimulus take effect, buyers of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares could benefit from a sustained recovery.Preparing for a slumpOf course, there’s doubt as to whether a second market crash will occur. As such, investors who are able to unearth high-quality businesses trading at low prices may wish to invest today. Their prices may factor in the potential for a further decline in the stock market. This could mean they currently include a wide margin of safety.If there’s a downturn in UK share prices, investors may wish to remind themselves of the track record of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Yes, they have experienced major recessions and bear markets over recent decades. But they have always recovered and posted annualised total returns in the high-single-digits.By investing while share prices are cheap, such as after a market crash, you may be able to obtain an even higher return over the long run that’s significantly ahead of other assets such as gold. Volatility may be high among UK shares. But their past performance suggests that they’re more than likely to offer the best returns available for investors who can look beyond short-term uncertainty.

Firstly, 2 houses have 400sqm of interior space comprise with 2 livings and dining connected with terraces, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms and the heart of the house, the kitchen. Because the family loves to cook and spend most of the time here preparing the food, receiving family and friends is important.

As for the rest of the house, rooms are simple and modest.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis also reflects through the shape/form of house.

Focusing in function, space planning and zoning arrangement than in luxurious or precious design. The land also have a triangle shape that is a bad feng-shui, luckily we have natural pond that come with it and decided to enlarge it and make the land more in rectangular shape where the houses sit. The rest of outdoor area dedicated to the garden mostly with eatable plants, fruits and local herbs.Save this picture!© Chaovarith PoonpholSecondly the connection of all areas are very important physically and visibly since we have 2 houses we create a house with ” L” and “ I “ shape with inner court with covered walkway around and share garage that leads to each house.

Your Hospice Lottery celebrates raising £8 million

first_img Your Hospice Lottery is celebrating having raised £8 million for hospice care since 2001.Your Hospice Lottery is owned and run by St Helena Hospice in Colchester, and works with ten hospices around the UK including Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, Salisbury Hospice Charity, and Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. Players pay £1 per weekly draw, and the money raised after the running costs and the prize fund are taken out goes to the hospice of the player’s choice. Prizes range from £10-£1000. Currently over 50,000 numbers are played in the lottery draw each week, with over 15,000 of these recruited in the last year.According to Your Hospice Lottery, the £8 million raised so far could pay for 80,000 visits by a community nurse to patients’ homes, over 260,000 counselling sessions or 16,000 days of inpatient care per patient.Alex Howe, Head of Lottery at St Helena Hospice, said:“We have developed a fantastic model where we can manage the lottery operation for other hospices on a national level, keeping set up and administrative costs to a minimum, so more money can be spent on patient care and all proceeds stay within the hospice world. We want to be able to share our success and experience with hospices that for whatever reason are not able to run their own lottery.“We could not have reached this fantastic milestone without the valued support of our loyal players who have contributed to the lottery over the last 16 years. Your Hospice Lottery is going from strength to strength with the addition of two new hospice partners in the last year, reaching out to more people in more communities. It’s amazing to think how much can be raised by people simply paying £1 per week to play the lottery.”The lottery started out in 2001 as the St Helena Hospice Lottery, and became Your Hospice Lottery after extending its reach into Cambridgeshire in association with Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.  131 total views,  1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Opposition demonstrators arrested for demanding justice for Bahaddin Khaziyev

first_img AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia The abduction and severe beating last night of Bahaddin Khaziyev, the editor of the daily Bizim Yol, was the second apparent murder attempt against an opposition journalist in the past three months, Reporters Without Borders said today.“The same exceptionally violent methods were used,” the press freedom organisation said. “Both journalists were kidnapped by an unidentified band of thugs, beaten unconscious and left for dead. Who are these thugs? Are they isolated criminal gangs? Who are they working for? Why do the authorities never succeed in identifying those responsible for these barbarous actions? The government must get on top of this and show that it is really determined to solve these cases and put an end to this kind of violence against journalists.”Khaziyev was driving in his car at around midnight last night when he found his way blocked by two black, Russian-made Zhiguli cars. Reporters Without Borders has learned that five men in sports attire forced him to get out of his car, put a bag over his head and drove off with him.His abductors then beat him, told to stop writing critical articles, and finally dumped him beside a lake 20 km outside Baku at around 3 a.m., driving over his legs as they left.
