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. Harshil Patel | Monday, 26th October, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares A £1m pot should be more than enough to fund a generous retirement income for most. The 4% rule suggests that I should be able to withdraw around £40,000 per year while maintaining the balance of my account.Amazingly, building a £1m retirement pot could be achievable with just a small regular investment, over a long period. The miracle of compound returns helps significantly in reaching this goal. Compound returns create a snowball effect where I’d get a return on my return in addition to my original capital.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…Say I invest £5,000 in UK shares and it grows by 10% over the first year. By the end of that year, I’d have £5,500. Let’s say in the second year, the investment grows by 10% again. My total investment at the end of the second year would have grown to £6,050. Without compound returns, I would have just £6,000.That might not look like a big difference, but over many years it can sure add up. Using the same example, with compounding returns, over 30 years a single £5,000 investment at a 10% return per year would return over £87,000. Without compounding returns, I calculate that I’d have only £20,000.The retirement planTo create a £1m retirement pot for when I plan to retire in 30 years, I calculate that I’d need to invest just £450 a month in a selection of quality UK shares. That’s just £5,400 per year.The average long-term stock market return is said to be around 7%-10% per year. But by researching further and investing in cheap, high-quality UK shares, I try to achieve a return of at least 10%. My £1m retirement plan requires just £450 per month because it will be invested for a long period. Patience will be required to stick to the plan.Small tweaks can make significant differences in the long run. For example, if I increased my monthly investment from £450 to £750, I should reach £1m in 25 years instead of 30. The same result could be reached by investing £450 per month at a 13% return instead of 10%.So, over the coming years, I’d be trying to do both – increasing my monthly investment savings and attempting to increase my annual gains from quality UK shares.UK shares in a stock market crashIn addition to a fixed monthly investment, occasionally I might add a lump sum. Often, immediately after a stock market crash can be a good opportunity to add to long term investments. In a market panic, I should be able to buy UK shares at a discount. I find that the bigger the stock market crash, the bigger the opportunity.In recent years, the largest stock market crash was that of the financial crisis in 2008/09. The decade following that crisis saw some magnificent gains in UK shares and with hindsight, it was a good time to add to long-term investments. It can be difficult investing in a stock market crash. Stock prices are falling, news flow is negative, and investor sentiment is weak. Investing when nobody else is can be a challenge. Investing legend Warren Buffett once said that investors should be “fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful”. Perhaps we should all take that piece of wise advice.

Sept. 26 march, PhiladelphiaThousands of Service Employees union (SEIU) 32BJ members held a spirited march and rally through Center City Philadelphia for #BuildingJustice on Sept. 26. Three thousand workers, who clean 120 office buildings across the city, are threatening to strike on Oct. 15 unless the wealthy owners of buildings, such as Comcast, PECO Energy Co. and the chemical manufacturing company FMC Corp., come to an agreement on a new contract.“Philadelphia shouldn’t just be a city for the rich,” said Alisa Johnson, a cleaner and SEIU 32BJ member, at the rally. “We live and work here too. We are a part of this town too and we deserve living wages, benefits and respect. All we are asking for is for us to be able to take care of our families.” Despite the largest commercial real estate boom Philadelphia has seen in decades, employers have proposed dramatic cuts to the cleaners’ benefits. Recognizing that most of those jobs are held by African Americans and migrants, SEIU 32BJ President Kyle Bragg said, “We are going to put a dent in Philadelphia’s high poverty rate by making sure that cleaning and building service jobs can truly become middle-class jobs.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Does Homebuyer Education Lead to Housing Stability? First-Time Homebuyers Homebuyer Education Housing Counseling HUD 2016-07-01 Brian Honea in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Efforts to educate new homebuyers are paying off, according to HUD. This week, HUD published early findings from a large-scale study into the benefits of counseling buyers, The First-Time Homebuyer Education and Counseling Demonstration and found that distance and telephone counseling programs in mortgage literacy and preparedness, homebuyer outcomes, and loan performance are indeed helping borrowers make better choices to achieve housing and financial stability.Between September 2013 and January of this year, HUD studied more than 5,800 prospective first-time homebuyers across 28 metro areas, as well as three large national lenders, 63 HUD-approved housing counseling agencies, and two remote service providers. According to the study, 65 percent of early participants (2,377 people) who were offered remote homebuyer education and counseling initiated services, versus just 25 percent of those who were offered in-person education and counseling.HUD cited improved mortgage literacy, greater appreciation for communication with lenders, and improved underwriting qualifications among the positives. There was, however, no evidence of improved budgeting practices, i.e., buyers comparing a budget with their actual spending.“The early findings of this study underscore the need to continue supporting housing education and counseling programs, and the particular importance of making remote education and telephone counseling easily accessible to prospective homebuyers” said Katherine O’Regan, HUD’s assistant secretary for policy development and research. “Over the next four years, we expect to produce long-sought answers about the impact of homebuyer education and counseling on mortgage literacy and preparedness, homebuyer outcomes and loan performance.”Education, HUD concluded, could be the main factor in moving prospects into actual buyers. In June, the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies issued its annual State of the Nation’s Housing report showing a continued decade-long downward trend in homeownership rates, while also noting that the vast majority of Americans indicate a preference for homeownership and that homeownership remains a key component of wealth building potential.“Understanding the extent that education and counseling can facilitate homebuyer success at gaining and keeping a mortgage is critical to mapping the future homeownership strategy for America,” HUD stated.

The applicants, through Advocate Prasanna S., have stated that expressing opinion about functioning of the constitutional judiciary or any other public institution is a constitutionally guaranteed right. Thus, initiation of contempt proceedings against Bhushan for his tweets criticizing the Judiciary has a ‘chilling effect’ on the right to exercise freedom of speech and violates the rights enshrined in Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution. They have urged the Top Court to allow debate and discussion regarding its functioning without those expressing their honest opinion fearing “retribution” of criminal contempt. “The initiation of contempt proceedings against the expression of legitimate concerns in the Alleged Contemnor’s tweets, will have a chilling effect on honest critical expression, not just by him but by all members of the general public who have an interest in the country’s democracy and the Rule of Law,” the application states. It is pointed out that most functioning democracies such as the USA and the UK have circumscribed the concept of criminal contempt and even the Indian Courts should interpret the provision, Section 2(c) of the Contempt of Courts Act, keeping with the ‘march of the law’. The Applicants include activists Aruna Roy, Anjali Bhardwaj, Nikhil Dey, Dr.Syeda Saiyidain Hameed and Paul Divakar; former civil servants, Deb Mukharji and Wajahat Habibullah; Professors at JNU, Jayati Ghosh and Prabhat Patnaik; ex-Secretary in Ministry of Power and Finance, EAS Sarma; journalist P. Sainat; classical musician TM Krishna; etc. Last week, a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra issued notice to Advocate Prashant Bhushan, asking him to show cause as to why contempt of court proceedings should not be initiated against him over his tweets on judiciary. On Monday, Bhushan responded to the notice stating that bonafide criticism of the manner and the functioning of the Supreme Court, ‘however outspoken, undesirable and unpalatable’ it is, cannot constitute contempt of court. ‘Raising Concerns About The Manner In Which 4 CJIs Have Used Or Failed to Use Their Powers Doesn’t Amount To Contempt’ : Bhushan’s Reply In SC Earlier, former judges, former senior government officials, ambassadors, activists and academics had also expressed solidarity with Bhushan and they said that initiation of criminal contempt proceedings against him, over his tweets on judiciary amounts to “stifling criticism”. ‘Initiation Of Contempt Appears To Be An Attempt At Stifling Criticism’: Former Judges/ Govt Officials/ Activists Express Solidarity With Prashant Bhushan “In the past few years, serious questions have been raised about the reluctance of the Supreme Court to play its constitutionally mandated role as a check on governmental excesses and violations of fundamental rights of people by the state… The initiation of contempt proceedings against Mr. Bhushan who had articulated some of these concerns in his tweets, appears to be an attempt at stifling such criticism, not just by Prashant Bhushan but by all stakeholders in the Indian democratic and constitutional setup. We believe the institution must address these genuine concerns,” the statement read.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Schools in Puerto Rico will be closed Tuesday as residents gear up for impacts from Tropical Storm Karen, the governor said.A tropical storm warning is in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Karen could bring heavy rain and possibly flash flooding. Some areas could see up to 6 inches of rain.Winds are not considered a major danger and the storm isn’t forecast to strengthen to a hurricane.Karen, which already hit Barataria, Trinidad and Tobago, will move near or over Puerto Rico on Tuesday afternoon.After slamming Puerto Rico, most models show Karen slowing down and some models forecast the storm moving west towards the Bahamas. But other models show Karen moving east, away from the U.S. and the Bahamas — it’s too soon to tell where it’ll go.In Puerto Rico, where residents are still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria two years ago, Gov. Wanda Vazquez tweeted Sunday that government agencies are communicating and preparing ahead of the storm.“I urge citizens to be calm but vigilant and update their family’s plan,” Vazquez said.Tropical Storm Jerry is also churning in the Atlantic and isn’t forecast to strengthen to a hurricane. It should move just north of Bermuda, where a tropical storm watch has been issued.The biggest threat for Bermuda will be some gusty winds of up to 50 to 60 mph and up to 3 inches of rain.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

July 21, 2018 /Sports News – National Tiger Woods’ strong third round keeps him in contention at British Open Beau Lund Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPhoto by Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(CARNOUSTIE, Scotland) — A five-under-par third round at The British Open has Tiger Woods in contention at a major for the first time in years.Woods shot a 66 on Saturday, and briefly saw his name sit atop the leaderboard following six birdies in his first 14 holes. He shot his only bogey of the day on 16, falling behind Kevin Kisner at that point.He hadn’t played in an Open Championship since 2015, and hadn’t led at any point in a major tournament since 2012. Still, after four back surgeries in the last two years, Woods showed glimpses of his old self. Woods sat in a tie for sixth place as the round came to a close, just four shots off the lead. Speaking to reporters Saturday, Woods said he’s happy with how he’s playing.“I’ve shown that I’ve been there close enough with a chance to win this year,” Woods said. “Given what happened [the] last few years, I didn’t know if that would ever happen again, but here I am with a chance coming Sunday in a major championship.”“It’s going to be fun,” Woods added.
