The sooner you start saving for retirement, the better your chances of enjoying yourself when you get there.The good news is that at 40, you still have more than 25 years to build up your pension fund. That is plenty of time to benefit from the compounding returns you can generate by investing in top FTSE 100 shares.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…You can still get rich and possibly even retire early. That is a much more attractive option than working until your 70s.No savings at 40 isn’t the end of the worldIf you haven’t seriously started saving for the future, your attitude has to change. You might actually enjoy investing, once you get started. If starting from scratch, every year counts, so you need to take action today.This means you should not wait until current stock market volatility recedes. In fact, you can turn it to your advantage.Now is a great time to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares. The market is still down by a quarter due to coronavirus. In 25 or 30 years, today’s problems will seem like a blip. Yet the shares you buy today will still be generating income and growth for years into the future.Having no savings at 40 is something you need to put right now. Say you start investing £500 a month at age 40. By age 66, you will have £440,903, assuming average growth of 7% a year. This is the long-term total return on the FTSE 100, with dividends reinvested for growth.If you delay for another two years, and do not start investing £500 a month until age 42, you will have dramatically less. Your money will have grown to £373,494 by age 66, assuming the same 7% growth. That is £67,409 less.Your early contributions are the most valuable, as they have longer to compound and grow. And of course if you keep putting off investing, you will never generate a decent nest egg.No savings at 40 does not have to be the end of the world. However, if you keep delaying, it might as well be. If have no savings at 45, or 50, your task gets that much harder.I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares todayYou won’t generate 7% a year by leaving your money in a Cash ISA. A balanced portfolio of FTSE 100 shares could get you there though. Stock markets can be bumpy, as we have seen in recent months, but over the longer run, they are still the best way to build your long-term wealth.This is a good opportunity to buy a spread of bargain shares, when prices are depressed by the economic uncertainty.

Investing money in shares from age 40 onwards could lead to a surprisingly large ISA nest egg by retirement age. Furthermore, buying the best shares now could allow an investor to beat the performance of the stock market and increase their level of financial freedom in older age.Clearly, determining the best stocks to purchase today is very subjective. However, a focus on financial strength, strategy and valuations may provide greater scope for capital growth in a likely long-term stock market rally.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…Determining the best shares to buy nowDue to the challenging economic outlook, the best shares to buy now are likely to be those businesses with solid financial positions. For example, they may have large headroom when making interest payments on debt, as well as low levels of leverage. Such companies could stand a better chance of surviving what could be a tough period for many sectors in 2021, as the economy comes out of an unprecedented set of challenges.Furthermore, the most appealing stocks to buy today could be those companies with large competitive advantages. For example, they may have unique products that differentiate them from peers and produce significant customer loyalty. This may provide scope for higher margins over the long run that boost their share price performances.When the best shares trade at low prices, they may represent attractive buying opportunities. The past performance of the stock market shows that it has always recovered from its lows to post new highs. A similar outcome could be on the horizon for many of today’s high-quality stocks.Building a retirement portfolio from age 40At age 40, most people are likely to have a long time horizon when investing in shares. As such, they can look beyond short-term risks to benefit from a likely stock market rally in the coming years. Through buying the best shares now, they may be able to outperform the stock market to further improve their financial prospects for older age.Even if they match the stock market’s performance, their 25+ year time horizon until retirement provides a substantial amount of time for compounding to work its magic. For example, a £10,000 investment today could be worth £86,000 in 25 years, assuming it matches the 20-year total return performance of the FTSE 250. Similarly, a £500 monthly investment over 25 years at the same 9% annual total return as the FTSE 250 has managed in the last 20 years would produce a nest egg valued at £565,000.From these amounts, a generous passive income could be drawn that provides a worthwhile supplement to the State Pension. As such, it is not too late to start investing in shares at age 40. And, through buying the best stocks available today at the lowest prices, it is possible to further enhance a retirement income in the coming years.last_img read more

‘Living stones’ of Al Ahli Arab Hospital build a ministry…

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Vicki Gray says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Albany, NY April 1, 2018 at 1:46 pm While this article by Amira Hass deals with other issues, she does have some comments to make about the political factions and their credibility and honor. Check it out: https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-gaza-s-march-of-return-reflects-a-desire-for-new-palestinian-politics-1.5963725 Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Tony Oberdorfer says: March 29, 2018 at 9:36 am I have no reason to belittle the Palestinian cause. Indeed during the several weeks I once spent in Jerusalem and the West Bank (many years ago!) I found it easy to make friends with local people who were very hospitable to me and eager to explain themselves. Some made a point of suggesting that under happier circumstances they would have no problem getting along with their Israeli masters. I know there are Jewish Israelis who feel the same way about Palestinians and do not like the idea of lording it over them. People for whom I feel a great deal of sympathy are the Palestinian Christians in Jordan who are in danger of being overwhelmed and crowded out by the huge influx of non-Christians who immediately build a mosque on every available street corner while Christian churches (if permitted at all) suffer. Donna Hicks says: Tony Oberdorfer says: By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Mar 27, 2018 March 29, 2018 at 8:55 am Indeed there are people of wealth who take advantage of the poor and take advantage of various forms of funding which come in, to their own advantage. I would hope we wouldn’t condemn or belittle or not be sympathetic to the Palestinian cause because of that. While many quibble over UNRWA funding and the way in which UNRWA operates, remember that Israel as the occupying power (in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights) is responsible for providing services to the people whose land they are occupying. Israel denies that it is an occupying power, of course. I would also lift up the many Palestinians, individuals and organizations, who practice nonviolent resistance to the Occupation. We don’t often hear about them in our media. Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC Tony Oberdorfer says: Donna Hicks says: March 30, 2018 at 6:27 pm To Donna Hicks and others: What you refer to as “people of wealth” taking advantage of others consists in large measure of the Palestinian Authority which has been around for twenty years and which has received BILLIONS of dollars from the United States and other countries. We have turned a blind eye to the fact that a large part of these funds has ended up in the pockets of people like the current head of the PA while ordinary Palestinians such as many of those Bishop Curry saw this week during his visit continue to suffer. So long as nothing is done to correct this situation American taxpayers should turn off the spigot but I’m afraid that won’t happen.

Overviewing the enormous sprawling refugee camps in Jordan, however, I once asked myself whether many politicians hadn’t personally profited from the fact that these camps seem to have become a permanent feature of the landscape.I thought of this while reading Mary Frances Schjonberg’s interesting account of Bishop Curry’s visit to Gaza. Of course one feels sympathy for the medical staff at the hospital who accomplish good things under often dreadful conditions. But I cannot share the implied suggestion that the “Trump administration decision” to withhold roughly half of its contribution to UNRWA is necessarily a bad thing. even though the hospital may be adversely affected. That money may eventually reach its intended beneficiaries. For the moment, however, and irrespective of what one thinks of President Trump, it is stupid not to bear in mind that the United Nations is about as corrupt an organization as exists in the world and that much of our financial contribution to UN enterprises over the years has gone down the drain or into the pockets of corrupt politicians.That, very sadly, is true in places run by the Palestinians. I wonder if Bishop Curry and his entourage have taken the time to drive through Ramallah and Nablus to admire the many luxurious homes built by Palestinian “leaders” who think more of lining their own pockets courtesy of the American taxpayer than of using that money to benefit the truly poor people for whom it was intended. Until this situation changes I shall remain less sympathetic to the Palestinian cause than I might be otherwise. Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Jerusalem Archbishop Suheil Dawani is at right. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Gaza City] Healing comes in many forms, and Al Ahli Arab Hospital’s medical ministry combines every day with Christian witness to provide the people of the Gaza Strip with an example of the love of Christ in action.That example is set in an area whose Christian population is dwindling. Suhaila Tarazi, the hospital’s director general, estimates there are no more than 900 Christians among Gaza’s 2 million residents. Ten years ago, the number of Christians stood at 3,000 and the total population was around 1.5 million.Tarazi told Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and his delegation March 26 that the remaining Christians are “the living stones” of Gaza, and so too are institutions like Al Ahli Arab Hospital, which is one of more than 30 social service ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.“We try through our mission of healing and love to preserve Christianity,” Tarazi said. “We put our Christianity in action. It’s not talking; it’s not preaching. It’s action.”Just 12 of the Anglican hospital’s 120 employees are Christian, Tarazi said, but all employees work together and learn how to accept one another and love their neighbors. That work is all to further the hospital’s ministry of healing and reconciliation. The hospital ministers to all, irrespective of race, religion or ability to pay.“The number of Christians in Gaza are decreasing dramatically, but the witness to the way of Jesus is as strong as ever because at Al Ahli Arab Hospital healing happens – Muslim, Christian, anyone who needs it, healing happens,” Curry told Episcopal News Service after his return to Jerusalem. “And that is the way of Jesus. That is what love looks like. That is what the sacrifice on the cross was about.”A toddler’s mother shows off her child to visitors at Al Ahli Arab Hospital. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceCurry and staff members who accompanied him met some of the patients and employees and heard about the services that benefit some 38,000 Gaza Strip residents each year. The hospital offers general surgery, general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and emergency care. People are treated without regard to their financial situation, according to Tarazi.She said the hospital struggles to survive and do the work of Jesus “in the most difficult and gloomy situation.” A drive from the Israeli border to the hospital shows a city where cars swerve around donkey-drawn carts, and some buildings still show the evidence of mortar strikes from previous fighting.A statue depicting a large bronze-colored fist rises out of the ground in one small clearing. Placards that appeared to praise men whom residents call freedom fighters and Israelis call terrorists are common sights on street corners. Other placards or murals, including one at the Gaza border crossing, seem to warn residents against becoming traitors by cooperating with Israel.Rubble piles are common, and some children forage in garbage-strewn lots. Forty-four percent of adults are unemployed, and 33 percent of children suffer from undernourishment or malnutrition, Tarazi said. The hospital sees nearly 700 such children ages 6 months to 3 years via a program designed to monitor their health and teach their mothers about nutrition and other health issues.Drinking water is polluted, as is the air, according to Dr. Maher Ayyad, medical director. Both communicable diseases and non-communicable ones, such as cancer and hypertension, are on the rise. Ayyad said that, as a Palestinian, he does not like to talk about politics but “my belief is that without America there will never be a solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Bringing peace to that area will further peace efforts in the entire Middle East, he said.“We pray all the time here because, as Christians, we believe in peace. We pray that God will give wisdom to our leaders to have peace in this area.”Al Ahli Arab Hospital has been ministering as a Christian witness in Gaza City since 1882. The institution was founded by the Church of England’s Church Mission Society and was later run as a medical mission by the Southern Baptist Conference from 1954 to 1982. It then returned to the Anglican Church. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe hospital’s situation is made more difficult by the restrictions Israel places on Gaza residents, including the movement of medicines and medical supplies, food, fuel and people in and out of the area. Electricity service only works sporadically, and often the hospital must run its 400 kilowatt generator for 16 hours a day. It takes $90 of fuel to power the generator each hour, Tarazi said.From left, Suhaila Tarazi, Al Ahli Arab Hospital’s director general, and Dr. Maher Ayyad, medical director, explain the ministry of the hospital and the challenges it faces. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceEpiscopal Relief & Development helps the hospital with its fuel and food needs.The hospital is currently struggling in part because of a Trump administration decision in January to withhold $65 million of a $125 million contribution to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA).The cut means UNRWA will only pay a fourth of what the hospital expected in reimbursement for the care it gives, according to Tarazi.If money and supplies are always an issue, vision and ambition are not. For instance, the hospital has a program for early detection of breast cancer among women older than 40. The American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and Islamic Relief have helped the hospital obtain a state-of-the-art mammography machine and the equipment needed to read the resulting x-rays. Support also has come from the Australian Anglican Overseas Aid organization.Education is an important part of the program. That was evident as Curry and his group toured the hospital campus. In a room in the breast-cancer department, hospital employees were teaching a woman in a burka how to do breast self-examination. They were using a rubber device with simulated breasts that fit on the woman’s chest outside of her clothing. There are 800 new breast cancer cases in Gaza each year, Tarazi said.The breast health education effort is important to increase early diagnosis, according to Tarazi and Ayyad. Otherwise treatment becomes a life-threatening emergency in which time is of the essence. Time moves very slowly in Gaza in those cases. Too often, the combination of aid from the Palestinian Authority and Israeli permission to leave Gaza for treatment cannot be coordinated with available appointments at facilities outside of the area. The Gaza hospital does not have radiation oncology equipment of its own.Curry’s group, accompanied by Jerusalem Archbishop Suheil Dawani, met a woman who had already had a single mastectomy and now had been told that there was cancer in her other breast. Hospital officials were trying to get her out of Gaza for treatment.The World Health Organization estimates that only 40 percent of Gazans who need to leave for cancer treatment get permission to do so.Despite all the difficulties faced by the people of Gaza, Dawani insisted that “we will endure” in order to help that woman and others like her.Signs in the courtyard of Al Ahli Arab Hospital point patients to various departments. Dr. Maher Ayyad, the hospital’s medical director, says the serene greenery of the courtyard is itself part of the hospital’s ministry. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAl Ahli Arab Hospital is constantly trying to build partnerships around the world to aid its mission. It is in the early stages of an agreement with Texas-based MD Anderson Cancer Center. The potential $30 million partnership would bring equipment to the hospital and enable the medical staff to consult electronically with MD Anderson doctors on cases. Gaza staff could go through the Texas system for training, as well.The hospital also has a grant from USAID to build a center for minimally invasive surgery. All staff surgeons will be trained in the technique, and the $900,000 grant will also help purchase the surgical equipment.Curry was in the third day of a Holy Week pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Previous ENS coverage of his travels can be found here.The presiding bishop is accompanied by the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church; the Rev. Margaret Rose, Episcopal Church deputy for ecumenical and interfaith relations; the Rev. Robert Edmunds, Episcopal Church Middle East partnership officer; and Sharon Jones, Curry’s executive coordinator.– The Rev.

John Smit’s one handed catch against the Wallabies

first_imgMonday Sep 6, 2010 John Smit’s one handed catch against the Wallabies Springbok captain John Smit has lamented his team’s poor form in this years Tri Nations following their 41-39 loss to the Wallabies on Saturday. It wasnt all bad though, as Smit himself pulled off this fantastic catch as the Boks upped the tempo. Its been much requested, so here it is, along with his thoughts going forward. It was another amazing Test match that went right down to the wire as Kurtley Beale broke the hearts of all South African fans with that final kick to win it. The Springboks, who came back well, should never have been trailing 31-6 in the manner that they did though, something Smit is all too aware of. “Our defence was not good, especially early in the game, and they cut us too easily. It certainly did seem way too easy for them to get through and again we needed to play catch-up rugby. We wanted a good start but we didnt get a good one,” said Smit, speaking at a press conference about the Boks worst Test start of the season. “Weve been disappointing in the Tri-Nations when one looks at the players and experience we have. Were below par and far off the pace. It will be no use giving a bunch of excuses were off our best and have work to do. “Everyone knows here we have players with experience. I told all the players that we have to get up tomorrow and have a good long hard look at ourselves in the mirror and see if weve brought everything we have got to the team. “The margins are small but for two weeks in a row now we have had to play catch-up rugby and we dont want that. We want to be clinical for a full 80 minutes and if we are honest with ourselves we are below par and off the pace,” he added. This clip is short, but shows a nice passage of play leading up to the great catch. Take note of the clearout from Gurthro Steenkamp at the beginning of the clip too.

The new sites will take the pressure off the centre, while maintaining the balance between charities’ duty to fundraise and the rights of the public not to be put under undue pressure to give.Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “The issue of street-fundraisers is a source of annoyance to many shoppers and visitors to Glasgow. However we recognised that charities have the legal right to fundraise on our streets, but we must ensure that people working, living and visiting Glasgow are not inconvenienced by this practice.“Glasgow City Council has now pro-actively tackled this situation and we believe this new voluntary agreement will go along way to helping solve the issues raised by the public about street fundraisers. We look forward to working with PRFA to implement, monitor and review this new arrangement to ensure its success.”PFRA currently has 41 other voluntary agreements with councils and a further 17 in various stages of negotiation.www.pfra.org.ukcenter_img The volume and location of face-to-face fundraising in Glasgow city centre and suburbs is to be controlled following an agreement between Glasgow City Council and the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA). The new rules, the first full site agreement to be implemented in Scotland, will come into force on 30 April 2012.The agreement is designed to guarantee fundraising at a level that is comparable to similarly-sized English city centres such as Manchester. It will also relieve pressure on the city centre by opening up fundraising activity in outer Glasgow. It means that fundraising will take place in Glasgow from Wednesday to Saturday inclusive.In the city centreFrom 30 April teams of up to five fundraisers will be allowed to visit six different sites around the city centre. Each site can be visited only twice a week alternating between Wednesdays/Fridays and Thursdays/Saturdays.Buchanan Street, Argyle Street and Sauchiehall Street have two sites each.This gives a total of what PFRA calls “60 fundraiser-days capacity” each week: 6 sites x 5 fundraisers x 2 days = 60 fundraiser-days per week.In outer GlasgowThe agreement also covers seven new sites outside the city centre, including Parkead, Govan, Partick and Dennistoun.Teams of five fundraisers will be permitted to operate on these sites for no more than three days a week. This gives an extra 105 days a week fundraising capacity. Advertisement Tagged with: Individual giving Law / policy PFRA Scotland About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

#AllIrelandFinal: Everybody counts as an equal in Kiely’s camp

first_imgLimerick manager John Kiely By Mal KeaveneyUNDER strict regulations drawn up for this truncated championship, only 26 players and a reduced backroom team were allowed attend on match day.Inclusive of backroom personnel, Limerick’s set-up would number around 50, and the surplus were in a kinda human cruelty fashion left at home for the outings to date against Clare, Tipperary, Waterford and Galway.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick manager John Kiely is pleased that this ‘wrong’ has been righted for the All-Ireland Final.In Kiely’s eyes, coach driver Kevin Griffin is equally as important as two-time All-Star Seán Finn.Always a useful player in his own right – he played both senior football (who he captained) and hurling (Munster medallist in 1994) with the county – it will, however, be for his excellent managerial skills that Kiely will enrich the GAA history books in times to come.It was a self-referral (to current Munster and then Limerick Chairman Billy Lenihan) ten years ago that saw Kiely step onto the managerial ladder.Initially he spent time with the county intermediate and under-21s.Kiely landed the plumb job in the Autumn of 2016, and what has followed for success-starved Limerick supporters has been nothing short of magical.Kiely is fortunate to have a superb backroom setup in the likes of 2013 Munster winning captain Donal O’Grady, Alan Cunningham, Paul Kinnerk (coach), Timmy Houlihan, Mikey Kiely and Aonghus O’Brien. Others, such as Liaison Officer Éibhear O’Dea, Dr. James Ryan, Kit Manager Ger O’Connell and Physio Mark Melbourne, are also key components in a well-oiled machine.Ireland’s leading performance psychologist Caroline Currid is also back with Limerick for 2020.Limerick want for nothing under the sponsorship of the McManus Family, Martinstown.In Waterford, after two forgetful seasons rookie manager Liam Cahilll – a double All-Ireland winning Tipperary player – has most certainly turned around the county’s fortunes in next to no time.Read our All Ireland Final Preview here … Linkedin Print Facebook Email WhatsAppcenter_img SportGaaNews#AllIrelandFinal: Everybody counts as an equal in Kiely’s campBy Staff Reporter – December 12, 2020 186 Twitter Advertisement Previous articleLimerick fancied to topple Waterford in a novel Christmas All-Ireland finalNext articleAn Garda Síochána Calls On Hurling Fans To Play Their Part This Weekend In Tackling Spread of Covid-19 Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more
