UK shares vs cash! I’d buy stocks in an ISA to retire rich

first_img I would never even think of investing in a Cash ISA or bank savings account. The interest rates are just way too low. I think the best way to build my long-term wealth is to invest in UK shares. I have a great opportunity to buy them today, given that stock prices have fallen so sharply in the stock market crash.By investing in top shares inside a tax-free Stocks and Shares ISA allowance, I can build long-term wealth for the future. If I keep topping up my holdings, year after year, I could retire rich. But not everyone seems to realise this.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…New research shows that Britons are sitting on the biggest ever pile of cash in history. It is one of the quirks of the lockdown that people are saving money rather than spending it going out. Normally, I would say great, that is sensible.Your cash pile is a waste of money One problem is that it is bad for the economy. We need people to spend their money, to keep other people in work. Another problem is that you now get next to nothing on cash these days. Leaving money sitting in the bank rather than buying UK shares is a big mistake.New figures from Janus Henderson Investment Trusts show that lockdown and recession fears have pushed household cash balances up £77bn in first half of the year. Savers now have a mind-bending £1.5trn stashed away in the bank, the biggest cash pile on record. That money would work harder in UK shares.Everybody should have some cash in an easy-access account, for emergencies. Financial experts recommend the equivalent of six months’ salary, to see you through redundancy or illness. Yet the research shows that almost £1.2trn of this cash mountain is not needed to meet household contingencies and is sitting unproductively earning minimal interest.I’m choosing UK shares over cashBy leaving money in unproductive cash, as opposed to productive UK shares, Janus calculates that savers have missed out on £38bn of income over the last year. That is equivalent to £1,350 for every household.Of course, 2020 has been a bumpy year for stock markets and UK shares, and I can see why some people have run for the safety of cash. However, the time to buy UK shares is during a crash like this one, as we cal all can pick up our favourite companies at much cheaper valuations.History shows that markets always recover after a few years, and those who bought at the bottom can benefit.Dividends may have been slashed, but the Link Group still predicts UK shares will yield on average 3.6% next year, which is way more than I will get on cash. Plus I will get capital growth on top if markets bounce back when we finally have the pandemic licked.If we get a successful vaccine, UK shares could fly. Of course, the recovery could take much longer, and Brexit could mess things up too. That’s why I think investors should only buy shares for a minimum term of five years, and ideally much longer than that.I would rather buy bargain-priced stocks today than add to the nation’s cash pile!

Facebook Linkedin Connie Beltranhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/connie-beltran/ Motor for the prototype. Students who received research grants have been preparing for the annual Student Research Symposium.In spring 2015, the College of Science and Engineering awarded 26 grants of up to $1500 in order to help fund student research. One of the requirements for the recipients of the grants was to present their work and research at the Student Research Symposium.This year’s Student Research Symposium is set to have the highest number of participants in its 14-year history. The symposium showcases student research, giving students a chance to present their work to faculty and prospective employers.Two students who received research grants have been working and preparing to showcase their work at the symposium.Nathan Loewen, a junior electrical engineering major, said he and his research partner started working at the beginning of the school year.“The fall semester was a lot of research and conceptual stuff,” Loewen said. “Whereas the spring semester has been all focusing on design and actually getting the parts, putting it together and really testing it.”Parker Wise, a junior electrical engineering major working with Loewen, said they have used the grant money to purchase materials needed for their project and research.Loewen and Wise have been working to create a prototype that would allow orthotists and practitioners to measure people’s posture without using pressure sensors.At the symposium, both students hope that visitors will learn something about their research and be able to see how much work has gone into the project.“Hopefully, this design that we’ve come up with can be used in the future as something that is applicable to health and orthotics,” Loewen said.For now, both students hope to leave a work-in-progress that future students can continue to work on.“My hope is that more students will work on it after we’re gone,” Wise said, “and [that] we can actually have a real and effective product by the end of four, five years that is sophisticated and easy to use and easy to get data back from.”At the symposium, awards will be given out to students with the best research in various science-based categories.The symposium will be held in the Tucker building on Friday from noon to 4:40 p.m. An awards ceremony will follow the symposium at 5 p.m. in Sid Richardson lecture hall 1. Connie Guttersten, a TCU nutrition graduate, will be the keynote speaker.All students are encouraged to come out to view the posters and projects to support their peers, said Becky Bittle, the symposium’s co-chair.Chris Rios contributed to this report.  Boykin, Doctson among 14 football players graduating Saturday + posts Connie Beltranhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/connie-beltran/ Twitter Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals week Connie Beltranhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/connie-beltran/ print Connie Beltranhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/connie-beltran/ The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Students paint bacteria in cross campus learning Art, science departments to continue zoo enrichment course Linkedin Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Table with materials needed for the project.

The award was presented by members of the TAC’s board of directors. Pictured from left, Pat Duke, TAC President Ruth Walker, Rae Denison, Betty Wagoner, Joel Williams and Lyndia Dew.Four area band directors are recipients of the 2014 Troy Arts Council grants.Pat Duke, TAC grant chair, said this year $300 grants were awarded to band directors Rae Denison, Charles Henderson Middle School; Trent Burkett, Charles Henderson High School; Amanda Ford, Pike Liberal Arts School; and Daniel Walden, Goshen High School.The TAC has been presenting these grant awards for 15 years in its ongoing efforts to promote and support the arts programs in the Troy City, Pike County and private schools.The grant awards are presented to certified teachers who make application for the grants. “These grants are what we call mini-grants and our goal is to make these small grants available to certified teachers in the visual arts and music – both choral and band –programs at our local schools,” Duke said. “A letter goes out to all the teachers and they are asked to make a simple statement regarding how they would use the grant funds. The teachers request funds for a variety of needs — for art supplies, for new music stands or to refurbish instruments, many different things.”Although the grant awards are relatively small amounts, Duke said the funds do help fill needs in the music and visual arts programs.The amount of the grants offered to the teachers depends mainly on the TAC’s patrons’ support, which ranges from the “friends’ level,” that starts at $10, to the corporate level that can be $1,000 or more.“We’re going to start our patrons’ drive earlier this year,” Duke said. “We’ll have our first program in September so we’ll have our patrons’ drive in July or early August. The patrons’ drive supports our programs in the schools and our grants program.The patrons’ drive is an opportunity for the people in Troy and Pike County to support our students.”The TAC’s commitment to the community is through its arts program, which includes a calendar year of performing arts events, in-school arts programs, and the teacher grants program. The TAC is the sponsor of the annual Jean Lake Memorial Scholarship that is awarded annually to a local high school senior who plans to continue taking art classes in college. The TAC also contributes to other scholarship programs involving the arts.

Record graduate numbers fail to fill media skills gap

first_imgRecord graduate numbers fail to fill media skills gapOn 29 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today Almost 100,000 students on 5,000 media courses will graduate this summer inthe UK, but according to industry experts the British film and TV industry isstill suffering from a skills shortage. Employers from the industry, meeting with education and training bodies atthe Training Insight Conference in Birmingham, all agreed that the sectors hadto work more closely to close the gap ‘between aspiration and reality’. The conference followed a 2003 report by Screen West Midlands and the WestMidlands Learning and Skills Council, which found fears of “a glut ofunder-equipped media graduates who were not directly employable in theindustry”. Krysia Rozanska, chief executive of Screen West Midlands, said the sectorhad to have more communication with institutions and tell them what is going onin the industry. Will Hanrahan, managing director of Hanrahan Media, was highly critical, andsaid that many media students lacked the ability to think strategically. Headded that he didn’t “want to have to teach people how to walk when theycome out from colleges”. Catherine Conn, training manager for video games developer Codemasters,said: “You are having to re-educate lots of people, especially [those from]media courses. It’s all about the basicsÉ in terms of people not being preparedfor work in any way, shape or form.” Following the conference, three working groups will be formed to identifyemployers’ skills needs, to help create closer links between educators andemployers, and to look at how institutions can create education networks tomaximise resources. The groups will steer the strategy of ‘clusters’ of creative agencies,employers, and learning providers created by the West Midlands Learning andSkills Council (LSC). As a result, the LSC plans to release a strategy for the industry inSeptember this year. By Michael Millar Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

Students grill Russian ambassador on LGBTQ+ rights record

first_imgThe ambassador replied: “That is exactly what we’ve discussed with Elton John. He had a conversation with President Putin about this before. And later on, there were a lot of publications in Britain about the gay rights, and all this. By the way I have a lot of friends who are gays [sic]. I have no problem with that.”He added: “If you live in Russia and you are gay, or in the so-called minority communities, you have all the rights the same as the others.”Another student asked Yakovenko if he agreed with claims made by Chechnya’s leader that the region does not have any gay people.“Well, I don’t know,” Yakovenko said. “It’s difficult to say if there are any gay people in Chechnya.”He added: “Probably the numbers of gays, [sic] they are not as high as in Europe. That’s why it’s a different issue”, before claiming nobody had complained about the treatment of gay minorities.The Union President, Gui Cavalcanti, asked him if people were too afraid to speak out.“No, no, no. Nobody’s afraid. We have so many gays [sic] for example if you go to Moscow. You have the gay sport, it’s just a normal way of life.“It’s not something that’s a real problem in my country.”After the event, Mather wrote on Facebook: “Just had the chance to take the Russian Ambassador to the UK to task over the purge of gay people in Chechnya, asking him why no one who perpetrated or condoned these actions has been held responsible and when the LGBT+ community in Russia will have equal rights as citizens and human beings. His response was beyond appalling. I’m still sat in the chamber and am fucking shook.”He added: “The lies, obfuscation, and complete lack of moral dignity displayed here tonight is appalling, but not surprising. The fact he’s been hosted during the same week as Oxford Pride is ridiculous.”A Union spokesperson told Cherwell: “Regarding the timings and dates for our speaker events, we are usually restricted by our guest speakers’ availability in trying to find a mutually suitable date, given their incredibly busy schedule. It is unfortunate that many have found the invitation of the Russian Ambassador ‘hugely insensitive’.” Angered students confronted the Russian ambassador to the UK on Tuesday, as the Oxford Union faced criticism for hosting him during Oxford Pride week.Alexander Yakovenko was forced to defend Russia’s record on LGBTQ+ rights, as students questioned him on the Russian state’s reported torture of gay men in Chechnya.The ambassador provoked widespread criticism when he denied there it was an issue, claiming: “It’s difficult to say if there are any gay people in Chechnya”.During his speech, Yakovenko spoke of his national pride, showing a four minute film displaying some of the highlights of the country – complete with orchestral soundtrack and English voiceover – and ending with a Russia-themed quiz.Russia goodie bags were awarded to the winners, and to Union president Gui Cavalcanti.However, when the question and answer session began, he was confronted by several members over Russia’s treatment of LGBTQ+ communities in Chechnya, where authorities have reportedly round up and tortured more than 100 gay men. The Kremlin has denied the allegations.Keir Mather, a History and Politics student at Wadham, said: “Ambassador, I’m a gay man. And if I lived in Chechnya over the last year I would have run the risk of being imprisoned, and tortured, and possibly killed by either my family or the state.“On behalf of all the LGBT Chechnyan people who will not have an opportunity to ask a question because they’re voiceless, I’d like ask you why nobody who’s perpetrated these crimes or has condoned them has been brought to justice, or faced any sort of criminal action, and also I’d like to ask you when the LGBTQ+ community in Russian will have their rights not only has citizens but as human beings.”His speech was met with an extended round of applause.last_img read more
