What’s the best way to invest £5k in the UK?

first_img If you’re lucky enough to have £5,000 to invest, you have plenty of options these days. Shares, investment funds, gold bullion, cryptocurrencies, and peer-to-peer (P2P) loans are just some of the assets you could invest in.Personally, I believe that funds are your best bet for a £5k investment, assuming you’re investing for the long term. They’re less risky and more cost-effective (for a £5k investment) than investing in individual shares, more liquid and less hassle than physical gold, and more proven as a long-term wealth generator than cryptocurrencies and P2P.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…That said, if you’re thinking about investing £5k in funds, you’ll want to be strategic about your approach. A few simple moves could make a big difference to your wealth over time.Invest in an ISAThe first thing I think you should do if you’re investing £5k is open a Stocks and Shares ISA with a reputable provider such as Hargreaves Lansdown, AJ Bell, or Interactive Investor. This type of investment account – which lets you contribute £20,000 per year – offers a number of advantages: Enter Your Email Address It’s the last point, in particular, that’s important. By protecting your investment gains from the taxman, your money will grow a lot more over time.If you’re aged between 18 and 40 and happy to lock your money away until you’re 60, you could also consider investing £4k of your £5k within a Lifetime ISA (the annual allowance here is £4k). Put £4k into this ISA, and the government will hand you £1k for free, giving you a total of £6k to invest.Pick the best fundsOnce you have an ISA open, the next thing I’d do is pick some high-quality funds that have excellent performance track records and are suited to your financial requirements and risk tolerance. I’d invest in a few different funds, in order to lower overall portfolio risk.Now, everyone’s financial goals and risk-tolerance are unique, so I can’t tell you exactly which funds to invest in. However, if I was investing £5k today for the long term, I’d want to have exposure to both high-quality UK companies (large and small) and top companies listed internationally. So I’d choose a selection of UK-focused funds, as well as some global equity funds. You can find more information on six funds I like for 2020 here.Average in over timeFinally, once I’d chosen my funds, I’d drip-feed the £5k into the funds on a monthly basis, instead of investing it all in one lump sum. The reason I’d do this is that it would minimise the chance of investing a lump sum at the top of the market and losing money if stock markets were to fall significantly. There’s nothing worse than investing a large amount of money and seeing the value of your investment drop 10% or 20% immediately. So, that’s my take on how to invest £5k in the UK.

Pandemic could nix hard-fought gains in Florida affordable housing, environmental funding

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The expectation was – and still is – lawmakers will return to Tallahassee for a special session to assess the damage to the budget before it goes into effect July 1.But Gov. Ron DeSantis now says his veto pen may preempt the need for a special session.The pandemic “may require me to exercise a lot of vetoes, and there may be vetoes on things I personally support,” he said Thursday. “I’m going to have to look hard at what is absolutely necessary and what things we can punt until next time.” Among appropriations that could be nixed by the governor’s red pen is $690 million for water quality improvements, $400 million in local projects, $387 million for the Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund and $100 million for the Florida Forever environmental lands program. Please enter your comment! By John Haughey | The Center SquareEven before the Florida Legislature adjourned on March 19 after adopting a $93.2 billion fiscal 2021 budget, there was ambient recognition the COVID-19 pandemic would require revisions in a spending plan built on revenues that will fall short of projections. What won’t be vetoed is $543 million in corporate tax refunds, to be dispersed by May 1, and the $50 million appropriation for Visit Florida, the state’s tourist marketing agency that was on its death bed in January but now is regarded a vital tool in reviving the state’s number one industry, tourism, when life returns to whatever “normal” will be.Affordable housing and environmental advocates, after celebrating a budget that fully funded the trust funds after routinely being “swept” into the general fund for years, are bracing to see hard-fought gains erased by the pandemic financial crisis.“Full appropriation of the Sadowski state and local housing trust funds is going to help Florida’s economy at a time when it is critically needed,” Florida Housing Coalition President/CEO Jaimie Ross wrote in an op-ed, noting the $387 million allocation “will bring over $4.4 billion in positive economic benefit to Florida.”The 2020 legislative session marked the first time in 13 years lawmakers fully funded the Sadowski Fund, created in 1992 to leverage private and federal funding for affordable and workforce housing.Money for the fund comes from a 20-cent surcharge for every $100 paid on real estate transactions. It is projected to generate $400 million in 2020 although, like all other fiscal forecasts, that estimate may no longer be viable.

You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here “The SHIP funds will help Floridians who have lost employment due to COVID-19 to stay in their rental housing and in their homes,” Ross wrote. “The halting of evictions and foreclosures [by DeSantis’ executive order] is great public policy, but rent and mortgage payments will come due soon, and SHIP will be a critical resource for Floridians hardest hit economically by the pandemic.”1,000 Friends of Florida President Paul Owens warned Wednesday the “triumph in grassroots lobbying” that secured full Florida Forever funding is unlikely to survive.Florida Forever is funded by a 70-cents-per-$100 documentary stamp excise tax levied on property deeds and a 35-cents-per-$100 excise tax on promissory notes.In January, state economists projected it would collect $2.87 billion this year. One third – $945.12 million – must be deposited to Florida Forever where $157.69 million is committed to debt service, leaving $787.43 million, of which $690 million was dedicated to DeSantis’ proposed four-year, $2.5 billion Everglades restoration initiative.DeSantis said if he must veto funding for some programs, there’s always next year.“Come back next year and we’ll do it,” he said.last_img read more

The need for internationalist solidarity

first_imgAbayomi AzikiweFollowing are edited remarks delivered to the U.S. chapter conference of the International League of People’s Struggle held in Chicago on Oct. 22. Azikiwe is an internationally known anti-imperialist leader from Detroit.There is a fundamental weakness in the people’s movement in the United States, and that is the necessity for anti-imperialist internationalism.The struggles against racism, national oppression and class exploitation cannot be separated from the need to end Washington and Wall Street’s interference in the internal affairs of most states throughout the world.Winning recognition in these monumental struggles is heavily dependent upon the degree to which we can create widespread awareness of the plight of communities of color and the working class in general. There are efforts underway to achieve these objectives although much more work has to be done.International consciousness in regard to the character of the U.S. state is growing immensely. This is in part due to the mass demonstrations and urban rebellions which have sprung up by and large spontaneously in response to the vigilante death of Trayvon Martin in 2012 and the not-guilty verdict handed down in the trial of George Zimmerman.When Zimmerman’s acquittal was announced it did a great deal to turn public opinion domestically and internationally against institutions which devalue African-American life and democratic rights. It was during this period that the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter began to trend. Since then there have been efforts to build BLM chapters across the U.S., spreading internationally into Britain and Latin America.Later, on Aug. 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Mo., 18-year-old Michael Brown was gunned down by a white police officer. Immediately, demonstrations erupted in Ferguson. These manifestations spread nationally, bringing attention to the false notion that the U.S. had become a so-called post-racial society in the period following the election of President Barack Obama in 2008.No ‘post-racial’ U.S.Obama was forced to address the problems of the “special oppression” of African Americans after the unrest in Ferguson. The situation of African Americans gained international attention prompting editorials in leading periodicals both in the U.S. and internationally questioning this false assertion of post-racialism.The administration leaned in favor of maintaining the status quo of national oppression. Obama, of course, gave his view of what “African Americans feel” and then denounced violence, saying it will not accomplish anything. This is a blatant falsehood because the U.S. state was born in violence and maintains its existence through brute force and coercion inside the country and abroad.What these developments further exposed was the failure of the Obama administration to address the special oppression of African Americans while instead advancing a policy of public avoidance in the face of worsening social conditions.It was the African-American masses and other oppressed groups who suffered the brunt of the economic crisis beginning in 2007. Detroit was one of the hardest hit urban areas. When Obama came into office in 2009 there was considerable false hope that these economic difficulties would attract the attention of the White House and the then-majority Democratic House and Senate (2008-10).Subsequent rebellions and waves of mass demonstrations in the streets, campuses and now athletic fields have stripped the administration of any pretense of political legitimacy. Colin Kaepernick and others in professional, college and high school sports settings illustrate that no matter how they are classified as “privileged,” the specter of racist violence and threats from the armed agents of the state remains with them at all times. Racism is on the increase in the U.S., and the refusal of the ruling class and the capitalist state to advance any reforms in this regard speaks volumes about the current phase of imperialism and its public posture.Global implications of capitalist crisisThe degree to which the capitalist class can claim any semblance of an economic “recovery” is related to the expansion of low-wage labor and the mega-profits of transnational corporations. This is reinforced by the systematic defunding of public education, municipal services and environmental safeguards.There are examples too numerous to outline here. We could speak about the undemocratic system of emergency management and forced bankruptcy in Detroit and other Michigan cities that have majority African-American populations. There is also the water crisis in Flint and the near collapse of public schools in Detroit, Highland Park, Inkster and other Michigan cities.A nationally coordinated movement led by trade unions demanding a minimum wage of $15 an hour is growing across the country. People of all generations are working more for less money.The prison-industrial complex, now encompassing approximately 2.2 million people, with millions more under judicial and law-enforcement supervision, represents another form of super-exploitation and social containment that is connected to racial profiling and the unjust court system.These are some of the principal issues we must take up in the U.S. Our internationalism must be informed by the specific conditions of the workers and oppressed and the movements that have sprung up in the last four years.Drawing links between home and abroadPerhaps the most profound crisis of displacement today is the migration of people from North Africa into southern Europe. This movement of dislocated persons has been documented by the United Nations Refugee Agency as the largest since the conclusion of World War II. There are 60 million to 75 million people who have been internally and externally displaced in the modern world.These forced removals stem directly from the foreign policy imperatives of war and economic exploitation engineered by Washington and Wall Street. The interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Somalia are fueling underdevelopment and balkanization.Many of these wars remain largely hidden from people in the U.S. Much of the social impact of these wars of regime change and genocide are being manifested inside these geopolitical regions and in southern, central and eastern Europe.The crisis of imperialist war has its economic components. The overproduction of oil and other commodities is driving down prices and causing higher rates of joblessness, poverty, food deficits, class conflicts and civil war. Countries such as Somalia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Nigeria, rich in natural resources, land and strategic waterways, are facing varying levels of recession, depression and further enslavement to international finance capital.Finally, it is our task to point to the direct relationship between U.S. domestic and foreign policy. A policy of national oppression inside the U.S. is reflected in the military and economic destruction of countries from the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, and extending across Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean.The problems we are facing in North America cannot be effectively tackled or solved independent of the people of the international community. The world’s peoples must unite in a program of anti-imperialism aimed at ending all forms of oppression and exploitation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Leading radio journalist freed after being held for eight hours without explanation

first_imgNews SomaliaAfrica April 22, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Leading radio journalist freed after being held for eight hours without explanation SomaliaAfrica Organisation Radio Shabelle news director Abdi Mohammed Ismail, who is also known “Abdi Uud,” was released yesterday after being held for eight hours by police in Mogadishu without being given any explanation. “They treated me well but did not ask me any questions while I was in custody,” Ismail said after his release. “Perhaps it was the way I covered acts of violence that did not please some of them.”———21.04.2008 – Government troops arrest leading radio journalist in MogadishuReporters Without Borders calls for the release of Abdi Mohammed Ismail, privately-owned Radio Shabelle’s news director, who was arrested by Somali government troops this morning in Mogadishu. Also known “Abdi Uud,” he is one of the country’s leading journalists.“The prime minister’s promises to respect press freedom have again been confounded in an unacceptable manner,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If the government intends to continue raiding news media and arresting journalists, it should say so, and it should say on what grounds it is doing this. And if the government is not responsible, then clearly press freedom activists are not the only ones who should be worried about the military.”Ismail was arrested at 11 a.m. near the Banadir intersection in the south of the capital by one of the transitional government’s military units that were recently trained in Ethiopia. Radio Shabelle said he had been taken to the Gulwadayasha military camp and was being questioned there. The authorities have given no explanation for his arrest.Colleagues of Ismail said they thought the reason for his arrest was a report about the death of about 20 people in a mosque in the course of fighting over the weekend.The new prime minister, Nur Hassan Hussein, told journalists in Mogadishu on 21 January, which is press freedom day in Somalia, that “violations of freedom of information will stop today” and promised to “improve relations between the government and media.” News Follow the news on Somalia Receive email alerts February 24, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region January 8, 2021 Find out more to go further March 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists News Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia RSF_en last_img read more

Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles Robert Barron Celebrates St. Monica Graduation

first_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News On June 8, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles Robert Barron celebrated St. Monica Academy’s Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation. After celebrating Mass along with five other priests, Bishop Barron delivered the commencement address and conferred diplomas upon St. Monica Academy’s 8th Grade and 12th Grade graduates. In his address, the Bishop reminded the students that the reason they have been “hunkering down” here at St. Monica’s was to fill themselves with the richness of the Catholic faith and the Western Tradition and then go forth and impart that wealth to the world. The ceremony closed with the graduates singing the words of their Alma Mater: “Crusaders, fight the good fight throughout your future lives. Proclaim the truth with courage knowing Christ is at your side.”Below is an excerpt from Bishop Barron’s Commencement Address to the 2018 St. Monica Academy Graduates:Here’s Mother Theresa’s principle, and this is the thing that I want you to remember. She said, “Don’t worry about doing great things. Do little things with great love.” Now I know it can sound a bit like a Hallmark card platitude, but that’s bedrock spiritual truth. Don’t worry about doing great things! In the eyes of the world, great things, that usually have to do with wealth and power and privilege and honor—don’t worry about that. Rather, even the smallest thing that nobody is going to see, no one is going to honor you for it, there’s no money in it, there’s no power in it. But even the smallest thing, done with great love, is the fruit of God’s life in you! That’s why it’s not a Hallmark card platitude—it’s bedrock spiritual truth. You want to fill your heart with God? Do the smallest thing with great love. Graduates, dedicate your lives to that, and you’re going to find what Augustine says we’re all looking for.St. Monica Academy, an independent, Catholic, coeducational school for grades 1-12, is at the forefront of a renaissance in classical education, a time-honored method of teaching that inspires students to excel academically and morally. Founded by parents in 2001, the school provides 242 students in grades 1-12 with an academically rigorous education using a classical curriculum.St. Monica Academy, 2361 Del Mar Rd, Montrose CA 91020, (818) 369-7310 or visit www.stmonicaacademy.com.
