Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares James J. McCombie | Saturday, 15th February, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE According to research done by Halifax Share Dealing, 32% of Brits think they are too poor to invest in the stock market, 33% won’t invest because of fear of losing money, and 29% think they don’t know enough about it or how it works to get stuck in.That’s a shame because they are probably using savings accounts, or maybe cash ISAs, that pay less than 2% interest.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…Funds that track stock markets like the FTSE 100 and individual stocks can be held in a Stocks and Shares ISA, which are as easy accounts to open. The FTSE 100 had an average return of 5.8% over the last five years. Some individual UK stocks had much higher averages.There is a potential to become quite a bit more wealthy over time by investing in the stock markets. Too poor to investIt is possible to make regular investments of just £25 per month into a stock market fund within an ISA. If you have £25 pounds or more to invest then you are not too poor to start. Of course, the more someone can afford to invest the more wealth they will build, but starting small at least gets the ball rolling, and in time you may find you can contribute more.Fear of losing moneyThere is a chance of losing money with an investment in the stock market or individual stocks. However, owning more stocks and being invested for longer lowers the risk. Buying a fund that tracks the FTSE 100 index spreads the risk across 100 of the largest UK companies. A fund that tracks the FTSE 250 spreads the risk across 250 of the next largest UK companies. Research by AXA Self Investor demonstrated that investing for 10 years in the FTSE 100 made money 95% of the time between 1996 and 2016. The 5% of trials that lost money invested between January and June 1999, during the heights of the dotcom boom, and cashed out between January and June 2009, during the financial crisis. If one of these unlucky investors had waited a year or two, they would have been in the money again.Trying to time the market is tough. Being in the market for the long term is what matters. On average FTSE 100 investors could have made 70% from 1996 to 2016.Don’t know enoughThe knowledge required to invest in a fund that tracks an index like the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 is minimal. ISA providers will usually provide fund ratings. Choose the highest-rated fund that tracks the index you want and charges the lowest fee.Investing in funds that pick stocks is a little more complicated. Some aim to provide income by picking dividend stocks. Some try to pick stocks in companies that are growing quickly and whose stock prices are anticipated to fly higher. The style (growth or income) and the skill of the manager are important considerations when choosing an actively managed fund.Picking stocks yourself is going to require even more effort than choosing actively managed funds. Before you do anything other than investing in an index tracker I would suggest getting familiar with the world of investing.Reading through the articles on this site is one way to start. Find a few articles about companies you are familiar with. Have a read about some funds.

The ‘Tap into WaterAid’ campaign is being rolled out across the UK.All the money raised goes to support WaterAid’s efforts to bring clean accessible water to millions of children around the world without it.WaterAid is certainly appealing to a wide audience. An online survey of 2,018 people aged 16-64 conducted by TNS for WaterAid earlier this month found that “tap water is the preferred choice for 63% of people when they dine out”.The campaign gets underway as World Water Week begins (22-28 March 2009).WaterAid’s Deputy CEO, Andrew Cook, said: “Water is essential for life, yet here we are in 2009 and more than one in eight of the world’s population are without access to it. This, and the lack of safe sanitation, results in over 1.8 million children dying every year from water-related diseases.“We’re so lucky here in the UK – we just turn on a tap and our fresh water is there. We are urging people in the UK to go and ask their favourite restaurant to give Tap into WaterAid a go”.www.wateraid.org WaterAid encourages diners to donate to drink tap water Tagged with: Community fundraising Howard Lake | 20 March 2009 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

SHARE Facebook Twitter Polly RuhlandAfter an intensive search by a farmer-led team, the United Soybean Board (USB) has named Polly Ruhland as the new chief executive officer (CEO) effective November 1, 2017. “Polly exceeded all of the attributes for what we as a board were looking for in a new CEO to lead us into the future,” says John Motter, USB chair and soybean farmer from Jenera, Ohio.“Polly brings a platform of experience and expertise that parallels the opportunities and challenges facing the soy industry – building demand in domestic and global markets, creating consensus throughout the commodity supply chain, solidifying partnerships with national and state organizations and being an industry catalyst. I am confident that under her leadership, the soy checkoff will accelerate our vision of advancing Innovation Beyond the Bushel,” he added.Ruhland has provided executive management expertise to the agriculture community for many years. She brings an extensive background in agricultural non-profit management, strategic planning, communications and regulatory compliance to her position serving the directors of USB and the larger soybean community. She currently serves as CEO at Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion & Research Board. She graduated from Colorado State University with a Master’s Degree in Agriculture and University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Communications. She also did post-graduate work at the PhD level in agriculture and rural sociology with an emphasis on grower decision making in cooperative structures. She has served as the chairman of the Commodity CEO Roundtable, a group of CEOs in research, promotion, and marketing programs. She is an Eisenhower Fellow, a certified mediator, and holds a professional certificate in the Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts.In accepting the position, Ruhland said, “USB’s innovation and agriculture industry leadership attracted me to this opportunity. I am looking forward to working alongside farmer leaders and organizational partners to take USB into a bright future.”USB remains focused on improving farmer profit opportunities through continuous improvement in meal, oil and sustainability by leveraging checkoff resources through strategic partnerships.John Becherer, current USB CEO, served USB for the last 23 years and positioned the checkoff for even greater successes in the future. John will work with USB to support the transition and the incoming CEO until his retirement at the end of the year.USB’s 73 farmer-directors work on behalf of all U.S. soybean farmers to achieve maximum value for their soy checkoff investments. These volunteers invest and leverage checkoff funds in programs and partnerships to drive soybean innovation beyond the bushel and increase preference for U.S. soy. That preference is based on U.S. soybean meal and oil quality and the sustainability of U.S. soybean farmers. As stipulated in the federal Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has oversight responsibilities for USB and the soy checkoff.

Europe – Central Asia Receive email alerts Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia Organisation RSF_en We, undersigned representatives of international and national human rights and freedom of expression organizations – ARTICLE 19, Reporters Without Borders, Privacy International, EDRI, Vrijschrift, Open Righ’ts Group, INDEX, English PEN, Russian PEN, Glasnost Defence Foundation and Access Now – strongly urge the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) to support the Resolution: Massive Eavesdropping in Europe tabled on 31 July 2013 by 23 members of the PACE. Our organizations support this timely resolution and remain concerned about recent revelations of surveillance of internet and telephone communications by the governments of the USA and the Council of Europe’s members, including France, Germany, Turkey and the United Kingdom. These revelations suggest a blatant and systematic disregard for human rights as articulated in Articles 8 and 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights and other international and European treaties. The blanket application of surveillance mechanisms to global digital communications drastically threatens the protection of human rights in the digital age. We remind the PACE members that in his June 2013 report, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, Frank La Rue, highlighted the negative impact of surveillance on civil liberties, including the right to inform and be informed, freedom of expression and respect for privacy. We believe that the proposal, formulated in the PACE Resolution, could offer an invaluable assessment of the strength of legal safeguards for right to freedom of expression and privacy in the Council of Europe member states and offer a unique insight into the legal framework of surveillance. August 29, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Massive eavesdropping in Europe: international NGOs urge the Assembly to support the resolution Further, we also support the emphasis of the proposed Resolution on the need to protect whistleblowers. Whistleblowers play a critical role in promoting transparency and upholding the human rights and interests of all members of society. PACE must strengthen this protection of whistleblowers and support efforts to combat violations of fundamental human rights. We therefore call on all PACE members support the motion for the Resolution. In particular, at this stage, we call on the Presidential Committee to start an investigation into the matter and appoint a rapporteur for it.Dr Agnès Callamard, ARTICLE 19Christophe Deloire, Reporters Without BordersGus Hosein, Privacy InternationalJim Killock, Open Rights GroupMarek Marczynski, INDEXJo McNamaee, EDRIWalter van Holst, VrijschriftJo Glanville, English PENRussian PENAleksey K. Simonov, Glasnost Defence FoundationBrett Solomon, Access Now The resolution calls on member states to regulate and effectively oversee the secret services and special procedures and to pass legislative provisions at the national level to protect whistleblowers. The resolution also calls upon the Secretary General to launch an inquiry under Article 52 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

He feels Annapurna Grill is fulfilling a need to bring southern Indian food to Pasadena – to remind people of home as well as introduce them to new flavors. The Chicken Biryani is one of his personal favorites and features marinated chicken, colorful, spiced basmati rice, hard boiled eggs and purple onions. Don’t skimp on dessert. After a flavorful meal, try a refreshing Rasmalai. This sweet dessert is made of cheese dumplings, with a texture like paneer, in chilled creamy milk sauce.
