Saving for retirement? This ISA ‘trick’ could generate £2,000 in the next two months

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Would you like to earn a 25% return on your cash savings in two months, tax free and with zero risk? Today, I’d like to talk about an offer of free money that’s backed by the UK government. If you’re in a position to take part, I think it’s worth considering.What’s the deal?The secret to this money-spinning goodness is a special type of ISA account called the Lifetime ISA, or LISA.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…The LISA is designed to help people saving for a deposit to buy their first home or saving for retirement. You can open one if you’re aged between 18 and 39 and can pay in up to £4,000 each tax year, until you’re 50.Each year, the government will pay you a bonus of 25% of the amount you’ve deposited. So if you’ve paid in the maximum of £4,000, you’ll get a £1,000 cash bonus.The new tax year starts on 6 April. If you pay in £4,000 to a Lifetime ISA by 5 April and then pay a further £4,000 after 6 April, you could earn £2,000 of free cash in the next two months.Getting the cash outThe catch with a LISA is that you can only withdraw the cash and keep the bonus if you’re buying your first home, or are at least 60 years old.If you do choose to withdraw before you’re 60 and without using the money to buy a first home, then you’ll face a 25% penalty charge. It’s worth noting that this is 25% of the total amount you withdraw. This means that the penalty will be bigger than the 25% bonus you earned on your original deposit.Put simply, if you withdraw cash early from a LISA, you’ll probably lose money.The perfect long-term investment?You can choose to keep your LISA savings in cash. If you’re planning to buy a house in the next few years, then that’s what I’d do. But if you’re using the LISA as a retirement investing tool, then I think it makes sense to put cash into the stock market.For low cost and simplicity, I’d probably put my LISA cash into a cheap FTSE 100 tracker fund (using accumulation units). The FTSE 100 offers a dividend yield of 4.9%, at the time of writing. There’s also the potential for capital gains over longer periods, as the market rises.For example, let’s assume that you’re 35 today and will pay in the maximum of £4,000 each year (or £333 per month) to your LISA until you’re 50. Each year, you put all of your cash (including the £1,000 bonus) into a cheap FTSE 100 tracker.My sums that a LISA invested in this way could be worth more than £280,000 when you’re 60. I think that would be a pretty useful retirement nest egg.Remember, you can only open a Lifetime ISA before you’re aged 40. If you think you might want one, it might be sensible to open an account today, even if you don’t start paying in just yet. Image source: Getty Images. Saving for retirement?

The Steel Craft House is a fine example of self-building. In a period of ten years, a former garage was converted into a wooden residence with a Corten steel façade. It was a challenging task where good cooperation, perseverance, and love for the craft led to an incredible end result. Zecc designed the façade, the clients realised the entire project themselves with the assistance of befriended craftsmen. Every steel sheet and every oak slat literally passed hands several times.Save this picture!© Stijnstijl FotografieIn the Steel Craft House, the stylistic features of a working-class house were revamped. The residence strongly stands out in abstraction and material, but it is in keeping with the adjacent buildings through shape, composition, and detail. Features like the characteristic façade layout, the roof cowl with dormer, and a chimney were translated in the steel cladding. Stylistic elements like a plinth, alternating stone bands, brick-on-edge courses, and cornices can also be found in the steel sheet pattern. Save this picture!© Stijnstijl FotografieSave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!© Stijnstijl FotografieThe windows in the new façade all have their own character, anticipating the function that is housed behind them but jointly forms an abstract composition. At the street level, a transparent recessed front was chosen, which had already been present in the façade appearance, and this way it is more in keeping with the neighbouring buildings. The ‘bay window’, shaped as a cantilevering enclosed surface at the location of the bathroom, provides for privacy. A small air gap was made at the top. The second surface on the first floor is a mini loggia / French balcony, behind which the living room is located.Save this picture!© Stijnstijl FotografieSave this picture!© Stijnstijl FotografieBehind the hard, occasionally somewhat closed steel façade hides a soft and light residence. The interior is formed by a sculptural piece of ‘furniture’ in oak over three building layers. Extra daylight enters via a patio and several skylights. For instance, the dormer was equipped with a light dome, and in the bathroom, the light enters via a small air gap in the ‘bay window’ of the front façade. With its characteristic façade, the Steel Craft House stands out from its surroundings, but simultaneously, the reference to the recognisable theme of the working-class house ensures that the modern residence integrates with the surrounding buildings. Not just this reference but the expression of craftsmanship – which makes this district so beloved – contributes to the integration, too. The appearance of the steel has a paradoxical quality. At first glance, it contrasts with the brick neighbouring buildings, but at the same time, it is beautifully in keeping with them because the discolouration of the Corten steel refers to the patina of the archetypical Dutch brick. The choice for Corten steel was also made out of love for this material; the client of the Steel Craft House is the greatest steel artist in Utrecht (Staalstudio).

What’s the Plan for Trade Long-term? Young Says It’s a Fair…

first_img By Eric Pfeiffer – Jun 12, 2019 Facebook Twitter SHARE Senator Young Weighs in on Trade with ChinaMost of the talk recently has been about Mexico and passage of USMCA, but a trade deal with China also remains elusive. President Trump threatened to increase tariffs on China again if Chinese President Xi decides to not show up to the G-20 Summit in Japan later this month to meet with him.I caught up recently with Indiana Senator Todd Young and got his thoughts on the trade war with China. He believes we could be going about this a bit differently.“I’ve already said publicly, I’ve been saying this now for a couple of years, that I think a multi-lateral approach, bringing together the world’s largest economies, to collectively apply our leverage against the Chinese would be more effective than a unilateral negotiation which is what we’re currently involved in.”He told me that he does feel the tariffs are merited in the short-term, but it’s not a long-term solution.“I hear so many people plaintively, understandably, saying, ‘What is the plan? What exactly is our policy with respect to trade?’ That’s a fair question. That’s not a question that is ever really asked with respect to our national security strategy that deals with military and diplomatic power because we actually have a written plan.”Young introduced legislation last year that would create a written plan for trade. He believes it would be good for not just this administration, but future ones as well. And it would send a clear message to countries like China.“If you steal our intellectual property, if you prevent our companies from doing business in your country, if you dump commodities in the United States of America, here’s precisely what’s going to happen to you.”The legislation died in the Senate last year.

Alleged drug trafficker threatens and assaults journalist

first_imgNews April 4, 2014 Find out more Call for continuing transparency and dialogue in media law’s passage Deputies pass amended broadcasting law, new challenge ahead UruguayAmericas News UruguayAmericas Reporters Without Borders today called for protection for journalist César Casavieja, founder and editor of the weekly Señal de alerta, who received death threats and was later assaulted after publishing a photo of a man suspected of drug-trafficking.Casavieja was accosted and attacked by the alleged trafficker, Amir Alial González, alias “El Turco”, in the Mercado del Puerto area of Montevideo on 16 March. The editor described to Reporters Without Borders what happened after Alial González got out of his car and headed towards him: “He was holding out his hand and smiling and I thought he wanted to talk to me,” he said.“But he asked me my name and when I told him, he began hitting me about the face. Three police officers intervened but they let my attacker go and handcuffed me”.The former reporter for Telenoche 4 TV and founder, in 2006, of the crime specialist weekly Señal de alerta, had been investigating the case since June last year, when Alial González had been arrested over a 100-kgs load of cocaine, about to be shipped through Portugal. Two months later Casavieja published the alleged trafficker’s photo in the paper.Since publishing the photo, the editor and his family began receiving death threats, which he reported to the police. Officers handling the case also came in for threats, while Alial González sued Casavieja for “defamation”. After his assault by Alial González on 16 March, the editor found himself accused of having assaulting the police officers. He explained, “The police report produced after the assault was changed: two officers were present instead of three and witnesses were said to have seen me physically attack the officers”.The journalist said that “El Turco” was still at liberty even though he had admitted when arrested in June 2006, having carried out the loading, but denying “ever knowing anything about the drugs”.“Drug-trafficking is a very high risk subject for the press,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “How can it be that César Casavieja’s assailant, who was arrested red-handed loading the cocaine, is now at large?“But above all how is it possible that police let him go and arrested the victim? We call for protection for the journalist and for the interior ministry to be vigilant about this case.” Follow the news on Uruguay Organisation RSF_en center_img Help by sharing this information March 22, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Alleged drug trafficker threatens and assaults journalist News December 24, 2014 Find out more Receive email alerts December 12, 2013 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomes the adoption of the Broadcasting Communication Services Law to go further Newslast_img read more


first_img News Organisation BelarusEurope – Central Asia RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” News Receive email alerts BelarusEurope – Central Asia The government is planning to arm itself with every possible weapon to ensure tight control of the Internet through the latest legal provisions. After locking down the traditional media, the regime is ramping up its Internet offensive to intimidate members of the civil society who have found refuge within its portals.A new liberticidal decreeOn February 1, 2010, President Lukashenko signed a Presidential Decree on “Measures to Improve the Use of the National Segment of the Internet Network,” which provides for a strong censorship overseen by the presidency. The decree requires that Internet service providers (ISPs) identify and register all Internet access media (computers, telephones, etc.). Cyber café customers will need to identify themselves, and each connection will be recorded and maintained for one year. The same rule applies to shared connection users (i.e., co-owners). Finally, the Decree provides for the creation of an “Analysis Center” that will report to the presidency and be responsible for content surveillance prior to any dissemination over the Internet. This Center will assign domain names and be empowered to order ISPs to close a website. The latter will then have 24 hours to comply. Sites can also be shut down at an ordinary citizen’s request, thereby introducing a form of online denunciation. The thirty-odd existing ISPs must use the bandwidth provided by Belpak, an affiliate of Beltelekom that occupies a monopoly position, thus facilitating control and surveillance.More-than-dubious intentions denounced by the international communityThe President of Belarus tries to appear reassuring: every individual will be free to do whatever he wants on the Internet: The purpose of the Decree is to “protect the rights of Belarussian citizens, the society and the state in the field of information,” to defend morality and intellectual property, and to encourage further growth of the Internet for economic purposes. Only it is difficult to believe someone who, several months ago, had announced his intention to “eliminate anarchy on the Internet” while referring to the Chinese model. No one has been duped: his real aim is to prevent the opposition from expressing their views on the Internet just before the 2011 presidential elections. The Decree is slated to enter into force in July 2010.The European Union has chosen to take a tougher stand toward the “last European dictatorship” by qualifying this Decree as “a step in the wrong direction.” The EU and the OSCE are currently reviewing the text to determine whether or not it is compatible with the commitments that Belarus has made with those two bodies.A vibrant online civil society, despite the crackdownNearly three million Belarussians actively surf the Web. Dissidents, independent journalists and the civil society as a whole have found the Internet to be a space for discussion and exchanges of opinion that no longer exists in the traditional media. Dozens of cyber cafés in the capital, Minsk, as well as in the rest of the country, are their main access points. Since a decree issued in 2007, they have been subject to a form of surveillance by the authorities.Belarussian netizens have already paid the price of repression. Andrei Klimau, the first opposition activist to be prosecuted after posting an article on the Internet, was given a two-year prison term in August 2007 for “inciting the overthrow of the regime.” He was released in February 2008. Cyber attacks against independent sites like Charter 97 – the country’s most frequently visited opposition website – or the Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty website, are common, as are threats against their journalists, or blockings during major political events and demonstrations. The anew Press Law of August 2008 established control over online publications.The Belarus online community mobilizes quickly, and its activism is echoed within the society. In protest against the elimination of free public transport for the elderly, indignant Internet users and bloggers asked their fellow countrymen to hand out bus tokens to senior citizens. Several hundred people pitched in, and the initiative was filmed and posted on the Internet – an unmistakable way of defying the authorities, similar to what happened on “Democracy Day,” when citizens blackened one side of the token to affirm their allegiance to democracy.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty, while hearing a petition filed by Letzkit Foundation seeking strict implementation of social distancing norms and wearing of face masks, was informed by the State that in the rally held on September 30 to welcome Member of Parliament Tejasvi Surya from the Airport to the party office, he had worn the face mask while some activists present there were found not wearing the mask and maintaining social distance. However, the memo filed by Advocate G R Mohan attaching pictures stated that no one including the Member of Parliament was wearing Masks and no Social Distance being maintained and also violated the SOP of the Central Government as regards holding any procession or rally. Following which the bench observed “Have you collected fines from Member of Parliament (Tejasvi Surya) and other political leaders for not wearing masks? What signals are you sending.” It added “How can a police officer file a report saying that the politician is wearing a mask when photographs show to the contrary?” During the hearing the court also asked the State government about the number of permissions granted for conducting election rallies during Covid times. The court will continue hearing the petition on November 9.Click Here To Download Memo[Read Memo]Click Here To Download Compliance Report[Read Report]Next Storylast_img read more
