Building up seven-figure wealth is a financial goal that many people share. A million or two in the bank brings a whole new level of financial freedom.Here, I’m going to share my top ‘seven-figure wealth tips’ for 2021. These could help investors build up a fortune, no matter their income.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…Pay off credit card debtIf someone’s goal is to generate serious wealth, my first money tip is to pay off all credit card debt. Average credit card interest rates in the UK are over 20%, meaning even small balances can attract a lot of interest. This kind of debt can really set someone back. Paying it off will put people in a much stronger position financially.Pay yourself first Next, make saving a priority. The best way to do this is to pay ourselves first every month. We don’t need to be concerned if we can only save a little every month. Small savings can turn into larger sums very quickly.Protect our gainsOnce we have some savings, we should think about putting them into an ISA to protect the gains from the taxman. My tip – don’t bother with a Cash ISA. These are pretty much useless in the current low-interest rate environment.Instead, take a look at a Stocks and Shares ISA. With this ISA – which has an annual allowance of £20,000 – anyone can invest in all kinds of growth investments completely tax-free. I can’t stress enough how good this deal is. Make £50,000 of gains from investments in a year and investors won’t pay a penny in capital gains tax.And those under 40, should take a look at the Lifetime ISA. This only has a £4,000 annual allowance, but it comes with 25% bonuses. Act quickly and invest £4,000 either side of the 5 April ISA deadline, and anyone could receive £2,000 in bonuses in the next few months.Pick up pension tax reliefSaving into a pension is also a smart financial strategy. When we save into a pension, the government provides us with tax relief. This is essentially a reward for saving for retirement. Basic-rate taxpayers receive 20% relief, meaning a contribution of £800 is topped up to £1,000.Don’t just save money… invest it!Finally, we need to get our money working for us by investing it. This is the real key to building seven-figure wealth.In my view, stocks are the best long-term investment. Over the long run, stocks tend to provide returns of about 7-10% per year. Earning this kind of return on our money means a seven-figure portfolio becomes a whole lot more achievable.Thanks to advances in technology, investing in stocks has never been easier. Today, anyone can get exposure to the stock market easily within a Stocks and Shares/Lifetime ISA or Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) by investing in funds, investment trusts, ETFs, or individual securities. Costs and charges have come right down in recent years, meaning even those with small amounts of money to invest can do so cost-effectively.One last money tip. Don’t just invest in UK stocks. The UK has some great companies, but many of the world’s most successful companies are listed internationally. By adding international exposure to a portfolio, investors can open up a whole new world of exciting growth opportunities.These kinds of opportunities could build a seven-figure portfolio a whole lot faster.

More than just a building, Connor at Central Park is the new gateway to one of Sydney’s most popular urban precincts – Central Park in Chippendale. Home to 178 apartments and retail on the ground floor, this 13-storey building reads as a series of boxes or cubes suspended in the air – a delicate balance of form, composition and proportion.Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThe original envelope of the building as described in the masterplan was relaxed in a design that accommodates a slightly larger building with deep slots added to bring natural light and air into the centre of the floor plans. This also breaks the building into a series of independent blocks, with two north-south circulation corridors running off a central lobby core, forming a shape not unlike the letter H. With slightly different shapes and heights, solid sides and glazed or louvred ends, these blocks bring a sculptural form to the building, almost as if they were suspended pieces of a giant public artwork.Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design Studio The façade is clad in a brushed copper composite-aluminium whose warmth recalls the red brick found in the local area, including the heritage Brewery Yard building nearby, restored from the original Carlton Brewery site. Deep fixed louvres, arranged in horizontal stacks, run perpendicular to the facade of the building. Each stack is rotated in a slightly different direction to reflect ambient light at different angles, creating sheen and shadow.Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThis subtle idea, which extends to the east and west facades as well, introduces poetry to the building while tackling privacy and solar control at the same time. On the Southern façade, which receives the least sunlight, a lenticular effect has been created by alternating two sets of louvres in different directions, reflecting light, trees and clouds, animating the building.Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioSuccessfully merging the different scales, materials, and uses of this corner of Sydney, Connor at Central Park mediates between the fine grain, low rise brick buildings of Chippendale and the larger scale, high rise buildings that connect Central Park to Sydney’s Southern CBD.Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioA gateway building positioned at the south-west corner of the precinct, Connor at Central Park is located at the intersection of O’Connor and Abercrombie Streets and is contained by two new minor streets. The main entrance to the building is located on the east elevation on Central Park Avenue, fronting the newly created urban park.Save this picture!Level 3 – 7 PlanEntering from Chippendale Green, visitors and residents are drawn though a compressed portal into a dramatic three storey atrium lobby.

Summer Forecasts Differ Greatly

first_imgSource: NAFB News service Summer Forecasts Differ Greatly Home News Feed Summer Forecasts Differ Greatly By Gary Truitt – May 28, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleSeed Consultants 5/28/2013 Market Update with Gary WilhelmiNext articleIndiana and National Corn Progress Hits 86 Percent Gary Truitt According to Harris-Mann Climatology – the summer doesn’t look promising for much of the Corn Belt. Long-term Climatologist and Forecaster Cliff Harris expects the drought in the Southwest to move and expand eastward over the central and southern Great Plans – as well as at least the western Midwest – by late June or July. Those flooded areas near the Missouri River – they will likely be impacted by extreme dryness later this summer season. Harris-Mann Climatology is predicting this current drought patter could be the costliest U.S. natural disaster of 2012 and 2013 – even more costly than Hurricane Sandy – with damage estimates possibly near 200-billion dollars.The outlook from Harris-Mann Climatology is the first to show the drought growing to the east. The U.S. Seasonal Drought Outlook from the National Weather Service – which was updated mid-May – showed drought improving or leaving much of the Central Plains and areas east of the Mississippi River. They did see a dry, hot summer – but the target for the driest and hottest forecast of the summer was the Southwest.last_img read more

Farm Groups Applaud President for Signing GMO Compromise Bill into Law

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 1, 2016 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Groups Applaud President for Signing GMO Compromise Bill into Law Facebook Twitter President Barack Obama signed the landmark GMO labeling compromise bill into law on Friday. American Soybean Association President Richard Wilkins, a soybean farmer from Greenwood, Del. applauded the President with the following statement:“The American Soybean Association congratulates and thanks President Obama for today signing into law the bipartisan GMO compromise bill. This law will provide stability in the marketplace for both producers and consumers, while avoiding a messy patchwork of state laws. We are happy to put this fight behind us, and continue to provide safe, affordable food for the American people, just as we have for generations.”The National Corn Growers Association called the new law an important agreement that protects America’s food supply from a harmful patchwork of state-level food labeling laws. The law will provide consumers with more information than ever before and ensure a transparent, national food labeling system. “We are grateful to President Obama for swiftly signing into law a bill that is crucial for American farmers and consumers,” said National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling. “His signature brings consistency to the marketplace and prevents the negative ramifications of conflicting state and national food labeling standards.”NCGA, along with partners across the value chain, has pushed for a solution to this issue for more than two years now as a member of the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food. “We are pleased to have been part of a coalition of more than 1,100 agricultural and food groups representing the entirety of our national food supply system, from farm to fork, in coming together to advocate for a bipartisan solution,” Bowling added. “We look forward to continuing our work with the coalition to ensure that, as the law enters the rule making process at USDA, implementation remains in line with Congressional intent.” Farm Groups Applaud President for Signing GMO Compromise Bill into Law Facebook Twitter Previous articleEric Holcomb Names State Auditor Suzanne Crouch as Running MateNext articleRecord Pork Production Lowers Hog Prices Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

AFBF Seeking Unity at National Convention

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News AFBF Seeking Unity at National Convention By Gary Truitt – Jan 9, 2017 AFBF Seeking Unity at National Convention SHARE SHARE AFBF Seeking Unity at National ConventionRandy KronThe American Farm Bureau annual convention  is underway in Phoenix. AZ. A delegation of Indiana members is enjoying the warm weather and is working on the difficult task of hammering out a unified Farm Bill position. Job 1 at this year’s AFBF meeting will be adopting a policy position on a new Farm Bill. Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron says bringing the diverse elements of the organization together will not be easy, “I hope we can come together. You have cotton that wants more money and dairy that wants more money, but what we have to realize is that we have to stick together and work together.”In addition, the farmers will need to find common ground on food and nutrition issues. Last time, a lack of support for the nutrition title almost sank the entire Farm Bill. Kron said that cannot happen this time. He told HAT Indiana farmers want to see strong support for continued funding of the crop insurance program, “Our members have told us that is one of the keys they want out of this Farm Bill.”Zippy DuvallIn his opening address on Sunday, AFBF President Zippy Duvall called on  Congress to pass sweeping reform of regulations that burden the lives of farmers and ranchers. The request followed, by days, the introduction of major legislation to reassert Congressional authority over agencies that increasingly ignore the law and basic constitutional limitations on their power. “The election should send a message—loud and clear—to our politicians: ignore rural America at your own risk!” Duvall said.Duvall also called on Farm Bureau members to explain how, every day, the men and women who grow food for America and the world work to make the environment better. “Just think about it for a minute,” Duvall said. “By using modern technologies, today’s farmers grow more crops on the same amount of land, using less plowing and pesticides, feeding more people. By developing more uses for our crops, like energy, we are making our economy more sustainable. If farmers don’t take care of our land, we cannot stay in business.”Duvall reminded the 5,000 farmers and ranchers in attendance that a reliable and profitable supply of labor is central to economic sustainability. He called on Congress to pass legislation to assure farm laborers can work without fear of deportation. “Without a legal supply of labor, too many farmers face lost crops, and they can’t compete on the world market,” Duvall said. “Mr. Trump says he wants to keep American jobs from going overseas. One way he can do that is by keeping America’s food production in America.” Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleClimate Corp gets Aggressive with R&DNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more

Parks department plans to restore neglected neighborhood

Martin Jacquet Middle school on the other side of the park, but left about ten acres of land in between the two schools uncultivated.A few years ago the consent decree was lifted. The city wants the land back to renovate the park.Soon to be renovated Ralph Bunche Park on 5600 Ramey Ave“I used to look at it when I first got here…it reminded me of a battlefield,” Zavala said. “Because it was just this no man’s land between the two schools fenced off. There were no improvements- there’s nothing there other than vegetation and stuff.”Bringing back the parkZavala said there wasn’t a lot of movement on the project until Councilwoman Gyna Bivens was elected and enthusiastically pushed the plan forward.Now the park renovation is federally funded. The master plan will cost $1.5 million, and the federal government is supplying $500,000.Farrell Ln, a street that leads to Ralph Bunche Park“Federal funding makes it more complex because you have to get a lot of approvals from HUD,” Zavala said. “We have to make sure we’re following all the steps at the right time because if we spend money before we’ve got an approval then we put all the money or some of the money at risk.”Zavala said another stipulation is that the project must be completed and the funds expended by October 2017.The completed park will include a monument to the UN diplomat and Nobel Peace Prize winner Ralph J Bunche and a monument on the history of stop six.“Stop six is an area in the southeast part of Fort Worth,” Zavala said. “And the reason it’s called stop six is it was the last train stop.”Zavala said the area is economically depressed.Closed food store on Rosedale in Stop Six area“A lot of vacant properties because they have done a lot of housing demolition, high crime, quick response rate,” Zavala said. “To me Ralph Bunche Park is going to help.”Saving stop sixRalph Bunche Park is not the only thing that is going to help. City Manager David Cooke allocated 2.6 million dollars of the city budget for neighborhood revitalization.“This is the first year we’re going to do it,” Zavala said. “We’re picking stop six. We’re using our funding to do things in the neighborhood and to do some improvements in another park which is on Rosedale.”Abandoned property in stop six neighborhoodSome of the neighborhood improvements include cleaning up vacant lots, removing dead or diseased trees, and upgrading the security lighting in the parks.“PD has a lot of issues with guys hanging out in Rosedale Plaza Park,” Zavala said. “In fact one of the police officers came to one of our meetings. They found six or eight dime-bags and needles just laying around.”The Fort Worth Police Department plans to put surveillance cameras in the lights. Zavala also wants to add lights to the Martin Luther King Jr. Park, especially around the community center on Truman Drive.“I told them think of Quik-Trip,” Zavala said. “Make it look like that. Make it bright, really bright, so people feel comfortable coming into the building.”Sunday morning in stop sixZavala said the housing authority is also working on the neighborhood revitalization project with a plan to improve the Cavile housing villa.“The whole thing with public housing is that disbursement,” Zavala said. “If you consolidate it all in one location it doesn’t work and we’ve proven that. So now the strategy for public and subsidized housing is to disburse it throughout the community.”Zavala said what really plagues the area are the vacant lots.“To make commerce and retail and all of those things work you’ve got to have the density and the population,” Zavala said. “And a plan to go back in and rebuild and build with better stock.”Zavala said the city has been working on that plan.

Two well-known Turkish journalists freed but not acquitted

first_img Follow the news on Turkey to go further News Organisation Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes yesterday’s release of well-known Turkish journalists Ahmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak after more than three years in prison, although they have been given long jail sentences on a spurious charge of assisting a terrorist organization and will remain subject to judicial control.Their release ends a long ordeal for themselves and their families. Arrested in September 2016, they were originally sentenced to life imprisonment on a charge of trying to overthrow constitutional order, but the Supreme Court of Appeals overturned their conviction in July 2019 and ordered a retrial.The second trial before an Istanbul court ended yesterday with Altan being sentenced to ten and a half years in prison and Ilıcak sentenced to eight years and nine months in prison. But the court ordered their released under judicial control on the grounds of the time they have already spent in prison. They cannot leave the country.RSF attended the entire trial. The sentences were imposed under article 220, paragraph 7 of Turkey’s criminal code, which stipulates a sentence of at least seven and a half years in prison for anyone convicted of assisting an illegal organization, even if they are not a member. Altan’s lawyers have decided to appeal.“The release of Ahmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak under judicial control is a relief even if they have been given long and unjustified sentences,” RSF Turkey representative Erol Önderoğlu said. “We call for their convictions to be quashed. We also urge the Turkish authorities to lose no time in amending article 220 of the criminal code, whose vague wording has often been used to silence media personnel since it took effect in 2005.”The revision of article 220 could be included in Turkey’s planned judicial reforms, the first packet of which were adopted by parliament on 17 October.The Istanbul court yesterday acquitted Altan’s brother, fellow journalist Mehmet Altan, who was released conditionally in June 2018 after being held for 21 months. His acquittal means he will be able to seek reparation for the time he spent in prison.Turkey is ranked 157th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.More information :- Blatant disregard for fair trial rights as Altan’s entire defense team expelled in free expression case- Ahmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak still in jail as retrial commences on new bogus terrorism charges April 28, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment News Receive email alerts November 5, 2019 Two well-known Turkish journalists freed but not acquitted News Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor RSF_en Crédit: Bulent Kilic – Yasin Akgul / AFP Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law April 2, 2021 Find out more April 2, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information last_img read more
