Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA is a great way for beginners to take control of their financial futures. It comes with a simple-to-use platform to see your investments clearly and to buy and sell shares easily.“How much can I invest in an ISA?” is a question commonly asked. The answer changes occasionally, but the current limit is £20,000 in any tax 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…This means you can invest up to that amount in your Stocks and Shares ISA between April 6 this year and April 5 2021. And any gains realised will be yours to keep tax-free.Stocks and Shares ISA vs Cash ISAYou can deposit your £20,000 in one lump sum or gradually throughout the year. Some people start with a small regular amount from as little as £25 or £100. Many never reach the allowed limit, while others invest the full amount immediately and reinvest any gains as and when they come in. Gains can be made from buying and selling stocks for a profit, or from any dividend income paid on your shares.But is a Stocks and Shares ISA really better than a Cash ISA? Well, with both, the money you gain is exempt from tax. But with a Cash ISA this isn’t a very big benefit. Your cash sits there earning an agreed interest rate, very similar to a savings account, and available rates are very, very low. I’d much rather gain 3%, 5%, even 7% a year from FTSE 100 shares than an interest rate that’s less than inflation from a Cash ISA.I also prefer the option of a Stocks and Shares ISA because it offers more flexibility, freedom and control. You can still hold cash in your Stocks and Shares ISA, but you also have the option to do so much more. You’re not limited to buying individual stocks and shares. You can invest in index funds, investment trusts, exchange-traded funds or bonds.A long road to richesStock market investing should be for the long term. It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme to access overnight millions. It’s a gradual process that can generate considerable wealth, providing you are sensible.“How long is long-term investing?” I hear you ask. Invest for a minimum of five years so that your investments have the time required to grow. Ten or even 20 years is better.Until you withdraw the money, the savings and investments you keep in your ISA can carry on earning interest and you enjoy the tax benefits. You can keep adding your allowance each year and over time, the value of your ISA should swell.ISAs began in 1999, so it’s viable that some people have hundreds of thousands of pounds saved in their ISAs — and there are even some ISA millionaires. There are many stories of ordinary investors who became ISA millionaires by taking a long and steady approach to investing.Don’t waste your opportunity to make money tax-free. I think it’s a great way, even for beginners with little money, to discover the world of stock market investing. The stock market is a fascinating hub of real-life business activity and an exciting place to invest your cash. last_img read more

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Test trio: Sweden players Henrik Ek, Jonas Zengler and Sami Paulsson play for RK Trojàn (Gunnar Hagberg) From a world ranking of 64 five years ago, Sweden are going in the right direction, now ranked 48 after wins against Latvia, Moldova, Luxembourg and Hungary in the past year.“That’s pretty high for Sweden,” says Hagberg, as we chat near the 27ft-high bronze lineout sculpture that stands sentry outside Twickenham Stadium. “A defeat by Ukraine (on 19 May) means we will still be in Rugby Europe Conference One North. But there is a good feeling about Swedish rugby because we’ve taken small steps in the right direction.Climbing the ladder: the Sweden national team are 48th in the World Rugby Rankings (Gunnar Hagberg)“It started with the work on the U18 and U20 national teams. They have the same structure now as the senior national team, and also the quality of coaches has improved. Sweden needs to keep building from the bottom, to get a solid base of young players coming through. And maybe bring in coaches from Great Britain or Ireland, that would help. Playing (club rugby) abroad helps a lot. The game is tougher there and a higher standard.”Some Scandinavians regularly fly over to London to watch Premier League football, and Hagberg used to be among them. Somewhere down the line he realised that he would rather be watching a different sport.“My feelings grew stronger for rugby. I think it’s a more honest, cleaner game, so I started going to the rugby instead,” says Hagberg, who attended some 2015 World Cup games for his daily newspaper, Norrköpings Tidningar. “It gave me more pleasure to go to Harlequins than Arsenal or Chelsea. It’s great action, great atmosphere, and no fake injuries! Then we would all meet up in a pub afterwards.Smile everyone: Exeter fans enjoy the atmosphere ahead of Saturday’s Premiership final (Getty Images)“These trips don’t cost much. Ryanair is cheap and we stay in a hotel in Paddington. The tickets are much cheaper than football tickets. For the Premiership final it’s 40 or 50 pounds; you wouldn’t be able to go to a final at Wembley for that.“So you get a lot for your money at the rugby. The atmosphere, the build-up, the fans outside the stadium; you get there a couple of hours before, straight from the flight really, go to the pub (The Cabbage Patch) and meet people. It’s a great thing.”Early riser: Jonas Zengler (right) tries to steal a throw during Sweden’s 36-27 win v Hungary (Ulf Strahle)Ask about his favourite players and Hagberg mentions players like Danny Care, Joe Launchbury, Rory Best and the Vunipola brothers.“I’m a big fan of England rugby, I follow England. I’ve also been to New Zealand to watch New Zealand v Australia a couple of years ago. My original plan was to travel there just for the weekend, arrive on the Friday, see the game on the Saturday, fly back on the Sunday. But my family decided to tag along so we made a family trip out of it. New Zealand’s always very impressive to see in action.” Commendable dedication. And with that we go our separate ways, Gunnar and his friends heading to the North Stand to watch a dramatic 80 minutes unfold in Saracens’ favour. As we head for our seats, we see Gloucester wing Ollie Thorley, the Premiership’s Young Player of the Year, and stop to stay hello. He is here as a spectator, soaking up the day with the rest of us. It’s a grand day out, the Premiership final.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.center_img The Gallagher Premiership final attracts fans from far and wide. Rugby World chats to a Swedish supporter we met at Twickenham, and finds out about rugby in his country “There’s a good feeling about Swedish rugby”Saracens were not the only winners at Twickenham on Saturday. Insurance broker Gallagher, in their first season as title sponsor of England’s top flight, were rewarded with a pulsating final to conclude probably the most exciting Premiership campaign there’s ever been.More than 75,000 people were there to see a ten-try fandango and they included not only supporters from all the Premiership clubs but also rugby fans from overseas.One such was Gunnar Hagberg, a Swedish feature writer attending his fifth successive Premiership final in the company of four fellow rugby lovers from his country.“I have always been interested in rugby and played a bit at school,” says Hagberg, 60, who hails from Norrkoping. “I never played league rugby. I played American Football for a number of years in the Swedish Super League, but I’m more into rugby now.Devotees: Gunnar Hagberg (left) and pals at Twickenham“My local team is RK Trojàn, who decided to drop down from the leagues after last season because of a shortage of players. But they have a good team, with some national players.”Rugby exists on a modest scale in Sweden, with around a dozen active clubs based in five or six cities. Clubs don’t just have a senior men’s XV; there are women’s, sevens and youth teams, creating a vibrant social scene.There are two ‘serious’ divisions for competitive men’s rugby. Stockholm Exiles, an expat side, are the best side in the country, with Enköping (from Stockholm) and Trelleborg, in south Sweden, the next best. Bath’s Max Green has played at Enköping – read about his experience.Rugby is a summer sport in Sweden, the season lasting from May to September, and it is small fry compared to the most popular sports, football and ice hockey. Domestic rugby won’t make the national press there but the Rugby World Cup will, and the World Cup and Six Nations are available on subscription TV, with Swedish commentary by Hamish and Allan Mabon.On the prowl: Sweden flanker Sami Paulsson carries the ball against Moldova (Magnus Andersson)Most of the national team – which is coached by Kanogo Njuru – play their club or university rugby abroad, being bona fide Swedes but often with a British or Irish parent.Significant players include lock Henrik Ek, openside Sami Paulsson, prop Giga Khanishvili and hooker Jan-Olof Johansson, with wing Axel Kalling-Smith and the Murphy brothers, Conor (fly-half), Nils (full-back) and Philip (centre), instrumental to the back division.last_img read more

first_img World Cup winner and Bayern Munich player Mats Hummels has become the second footballer to join Common Goal, pledging 1% of his wage to high-impact football charities.Hummels’s pledge came less than two weeks after Manchester United’s Juan Mata made the 1% pledge for himself and challenged his peers to do the same. The footballers’ donations will be pooled into a collective fund steered by Berlin-based NGO streetfootballworld, which is behind Common Goal. Both Hummels and Mata have challenged their peers to join them in making the pledge.Common Goal asks football players to pledge a minimum of 1% of their salaries to a collective fund, which is then invested in best practice football-based charities around the world. Common Goal hopes to extend the pledge the pledge to everybody in the football industry who generates money through the game. Mata was the first to make the pledge on 4 August.Hummels said:“As soon as I heard of Common Goal I knew this was a chance for football to improve our world, and I wanted to be part of it, I feel we could be doing more to connect the increasing revenues in football to some kind of deeper purpose. This is what struck me about Common Goal. Through the 1% pledge, we’re building a bridge between football and its social impact around the world.”Jürgen Griesbeck, CEO of streetfootballworld, added: Advertisement  214 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis26 Melanie May | 31 August 2017 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis26 Footballers sign Common Goal pledge to give 1% of salary to charity  213 total views,  1 views today Tagged with: football “What we have here is two star players from different leagues and different countries joining forces in the name of social change.

first_img eHarmony co-founder speaks with TCU students Previous articleForums guide students to professional successNext articleDee J. Kelly remembered Tuyen Hoang RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Max Krochmal, an assistant professor of history, put together a proposal to the AddRan College of Liberal Arts for their Creativity and Innovation in Learning Grant Program.“Student initiative started on [African-American studies minor],” Krochmal said. “We’re trying to work together for the same cause.”Melanie Harris, an associate professor of religion and ethics, and Krochmal are meeting with different colleagues who may be interested in African-American studies and African diaspora studies.African-American studies and African diaspora studies will be under one minor, Krochmal said.This means that students can take courses related to African-American experiences in the U.S., as well as courses related to African descendant people around the world.Krochmal and Harris are planning to work with directors of other independent minor programs to build a critical race and ethnic studies program.Krochmal said he and Harris plan to call a meeting to pass out details about the proposal for the African-American studies minor.“Our hope is that we will get all of our colleagues together. We’ll start drafting the actual language of the proposal, which include[s] the finalized course list,” Krochmal said.The student initiative to propose the resolution was prompted by last spring’s TCU United protest, which objected to racist comments on Yik Yak posts about the Baltimore riots.Graduated student Jarrod McClendon, Adam Powell, a senior history major and Samantha Koehler, senior sociology major, first created a mock proposal for the African-American studies minor as a final project for a Civil Rights Movement course.Powell said more than 150 students who attended the protest sent emails or provided contact information to support the resolution.“I don’t think you can find a more diverse group of people to support something than admin, faculty, staff and students from all over the campus,” Powell said. “Everybody was there with the same goal in mind to create something positive out of negative circumstances across the country.”Once they had SGA support, the students had to work with faculty to propose the curriculum to TCU curriculum committee.Krochmal said the faculty committee has to decide the governance structure for the minor, including required and subcategory courses.Krochmal said he believes the addition of an African-American studies minor will  help to create a fuller experience and a more broadly grounded education for students and faculty members.“For TCU to really continue to propel itself upper in the ranking, to really become a world class university that we all wanted to be,” Krochmal said, “this is one area that we need to catch up.”A forum will be held today, Oct. 6, at 6.p.m. in the Beck and Green rooms in the Brown-Lupton University Union for all faculty, staff and students to learn more about African-American studies and ethic studies.

first_img + posts ReddIt Twitter TCU women’s tennis drops match against Texas Cameron Norrie loads up to return a ball against OSU on Sunday. printThe TCU men’s tennis team knew they had one of the toughest weeks of the season to get through in facing three top 25 teams, and they finished strong on Sunday.No. 2 TCU won all three of those matches, including a 4-0 sweep of No. 9 Oklahoma State on Sunday afternoon.Head coach David Roditi was impressed with the way his team played against the stout competition.“I’m just proud of our guys,” Roditi said. “It was a tough week. We asked a lot of them. To be playing three top 25 teams in one week, that’s hard. I’m just proud of them.”TCU quickly won the doubles point off of 6-1 and 6-3 victories.The Frogs managed to win the final three points without going to a third set in any match.Trevor Johnson dominated on court six, winning his match 6-2, 6-1. Jerry Lopez also made quick work of his opponent, winning 6-0, 6-4.No. 61 Guillermo Nunez finished the match off for the Frogs with a 6-2, 6-4 victory.It wasn’t all easy for the Frogs on Sunday though, as there was windy conditions throughout the match.“It got a little swirly out there,” Roditi said. “I was really proud of our guys that kept on fighting. You could tell they weren’t very comfortable with the conditions but they just kept hanging in there and making the best of it. That’s the kind of attitude we’re going to need for the rest of the way.”TCU has three regular season matches left on the year. Next weekend the Frogs travel to Austin to take on Texas. TCU finishes up the season with a home match on April 24 against Baylor and a match in Lubbock on April 24 against Texas Tech.

Bau Haus means House of Art and that describes the doghouse of German expressionism to a tee.“On the front is the image of a shepherd – I guess a German shepherd,” Godwin said with a smile. “The other dog is a poodle or some other small dog.”A bulldog and a greyhound grace one side of the doghouse, depicting a dog show complete with a judge and a winner’s ribbon.“Each doghouse is different with some more colorful than others, the Brundidge artist said. “But dogs can’t see colors, or so I’m told. The colors won’t matter to them.” Latest Stories By Jaine Treadwell By The Penny Hoarder Godwin said his preference of doghouse designs is the one with linear lines.“It’s somewhat abstract and I first painted it with spray paint to get kind of a psychedelic background. Linear lines are very interesting.”While the linear-look might be his preference, the doghouse with the folk art designs is of his heart.“I replicated the artwork of my daughter, Selena, when she was a young girl,” Godwin said. “These designs are colorful, playful and give the doghouse a child-like appearance.”Godwin’s daughter was a victim of cystic fibrosis and died when she was 26 years old.“They call the disease 65 Roses. That’s such a beautiful name for such a terrible disease.”Godwin also includes the artwork of Selena’s daughter and his granddaughter, Amber, in some of the designs.“Amber is going to Oregon State to study anthropology or archeology,” Godwin said. “They grow up fast.”For that reason, there is a lot of interest among connoisseurs of doghouse art to have their own children’s art as the doghouse design.“I do custom orders,” Godwin said. “They are a little more but people have an idea of what they want and, sure, I’ll do it. My designs or theirs. Either way, what they get is a different kind of doghouse – an Artbark Doghouse.”The artwork is the result of the old adage that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.When the warehouse Godwin rented out was vacated, a stack of heavy wooden boxes were left behind.“It was more economical to leave them than to load them and haul them off, Godwin said. “And, I didn’t mind. You can always find a use for anything.”The “use” was suggested by a friend who just happened by.“He asked me what I was going to do with all those boxes and I asked if he had any suggestions,” Godwin said. “His suggestion was to cut a hole in them and make doghouses.”Godwin said the boxes were originally the casings for the tail-control assembly of the Patriot Missile.“So they were heavy, strong boxes that were built to protect what they housed,” he said. “I thought about it and decided the boxes would make good doghouses. The way they are built, they’re off the ground just a little and they can be opened so they can be cleaned easily. Doghouses were a good idea for the boxes.”Godwin cut the opening and put up a sign that simply read: Doghouses for sale.There was nothing fancy or eye appealing about the doghouses. They were just wooden boxes with an opening in the front.“Before I even got the first one out for display, a man stopped to buy it,” Godwin said. “While he was there, a lady stopped and wanted one for her cat. She wanted one with a smaller opening so dogs couldn’t get in there and bother the cat.”In just a short time, Godwin had sold 20 boxes for doghouses.Business was booming but the profits were minimal.“At $25 each, the time I put into the doghouses wasn’t really paying off,” he said. “It took more time and effort than it was worth.”Then the artist in him took over.The idea came to him that art is for everyone. Even for dogs. Why shouldn’t companion dogs have a house especially designed and made for them.Artbark Doghouses hit the market.And, when doggies’ moms and dads consider that they aren’t buying just a doghouse, they are buying an original work of art, the price of an Artbark Doghouse is a pretty good deal.“Somebody said, ‘Two-hundred and fifty dollars for a doghouse?’ but I think it’s a good deal,” Godwin said. “It’s art. It’s original and it’s functional.”And for those who don’t have a dog, Godwin will design a box without an opening that will make a great conversation starter or an outdoor art piece that will have folks a-talkin’ Artbark. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Email the author Book Nook to reopen Skip Published 10:00 pm Saturday, May 30, 2009 The folks who stop to view Godwin’s Artbark Doghouses find a bushel basket of adjectives to describe them. Some stand, looking, admiringly, for just the right descriptive term.“German expressionism. That’s what it is,” one man said as he stroked his chin. “The rapid strokes. Yes, German expressionism.”What the man’s dog will think about the designer doghouse, no one will ever know. But it’s a certainty that there’ll not be another doghouse like it on the “bark, ah, block.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Larry Godwin’s art is going to the dogs. Literally.Godwin grins slyly when he talks about his latest works of art. As he talks, cars slow, then stop at Art Acres to view the designer doghouses on display along busy U.S. Highway 231 south of Brundidge.Colorful, funky, expressionistic, folksy, impressionistic, wild, wonderful.
