Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. In the UK, the current retirement age to be able to access the State Pension is 66. This has been rising over the years, and likely will continue to increase. So even if someone doesn’t have any savings at 50, it’s not the end of the world. Far from it. There’s still almost two decades of potential work to build a retirement pot that can add to the state provision and really make a difference. I’ve always been a firm believer in trying to improve my wealth. As a result, I’m keen to build my own investment portfolio of top UK shares to get the ball rolling.How much should I invest?I’ll come to my ideas for shares later, but first I want to go over the numbers. Let’s assume that I’m 50, and want to ensure I have a large enough pot by the time I’m 66. Let’s also say that I want to be able to have £1,000 a month for expenses until I’m 90. So I need to get my UK share portfolio up to £288,000 to facilitate this spending.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…Over the next 16 years, this means I’ll need to put away just under £8,500 a year, or around £710 a month. If I pick good growth stocks that give me an average return of 10% a year, I’ll be able to reach my goal. I hope this illustrates that even from a standing start at 50, a decent amount of money can still be generated through investing in shares.Which top UK shares should I buy?I recently wrote an article saying that if I could only buy one stock this year, I’d buy Barratt Developments. Fortunately, that was a theoretical question, and I can actually buy more than one stock. I would still buy Barratt, but alongside a dozen other top UK shares. In this way, I’d hope to be able to smooth out my returns over the next 16 years. Another top UK share I’d look to buy would be Ocado Group. The business is going from strength-to-strength, and I think it’s a safe investment should further lockdowns hit the UK. As such, holding Ocado alongside Barratt would smooth out my performance. If Covid-19 places limits on our lives again, then construction could be halted. This would negatively impact the share price for Barratt. At the same time, the Ocado share price would likely rally, as a surge of online orders would come from people being more housebound.This shows the benefit of holding several stocks, especially over the long term when trends are harder to predict. I’d look to add into the mix some UK shares that don’t go out of fashion, regardless of changing trends. One example here would be the London Stock Exchange Group. The company generates revenues in a variety of ways, from capital markets to information services. The stock isn’t cyclical, and so should continue to generate revenue for a long time.I think that mix, along with more shares to diversify my portfolio and regular monthly investing, is a good strategy to help me in my goal of building a generous retirement pot.

Prop Ben Tameifuna’s big charge against the Blues

first_imgWednesday Jul 17, 2013 Prop Ben Tameifuna’s big charge against the Blues There’s nothing better than seeing a 137kg+ prop in full flight, and we were treated to it by Ben Tameifuna against the Blues at the weekend. He took on a few smaller backs but it was his acceleration that was probably the most impressive thing. Big Ben weighed in at 144kg’s at the start of the season, but has shed a few after some hard work, and has since been more mobile than ever, even scoring two tries against the Blues.Look out for him in the Super Rugby Semi Final next weekend.This was first shared on the Rugbydump Facebook page, then later updated and archived on the site.

Socialist Cuba: a global leader in the fight against COVID-19

first_imgBy Rosemari MealyThis is a slightly edited talk given at a Workers World Party webinar on Aug. 20 on “COVID can be defeated: Cuba, China, Venezuela and Vietnam lead the way.” Cuban doctors battle COVID-19.I would like to thank Workers World for the opportunity to participate in this webinar. COVID-19 can be defeated by recognizing the heroic people of Cuba, China, Venezuela and Vietnam who are all facing in some form or another sanctions, blockades and or strategies to sabotage every aspect of their socialist governments’ economic, social and cultural policies.The U.S embargo or blockade of Cuba has now entered its sixth decade of unsuccessful attempts to wreak havoc on that nation. We cannot talk about how Cuba has been able to defeat COVID without first acknowledging that for 60 years Cuba has faced the longest trade embargo in history. First imposed in 1960 under the Eisenhower administration with the prohibition of export of all products except for foods, medicines and medical supplies, the U.S. embargo of Cuba is in essence a relic of the Cold War initiated by the capitalist West to undermine socialist developments in the Soviet Union, China and, by 1960, Cuba. Notwithstanding the ending of the Cold War with the collapse of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991, Congress in the years since has continued to pass — and presidents have signed into law — legislation strengthening the embargo. The Helms-Burton Act is unquestionably the most draconian as well as the most controversial of the laws; the embargo cannot be ended without congressional concurrence through legislation. Cuba is not isolated internationally and has survived and is supported by an overwhelming majority of the countries in the world. Despite the blockade during the global pandemic, Cuba has shown the way in confronting COVID-19. First and foremost, most of the trajectory of this pandemic, like all pandemics, is based on the overall condition and organization of the society. Cuba is a socialist society where, from the very beginning of the triumph of the revolution, health care, education, housing and the protection of workers were built into the new Socialist Constitution. ‘Health care is a human right’ in CubaHealth is considered a human right. The country’s health care system is one of the world’s greatest contributions because it operates both horizontally and vertically. By that I mean the delivery of health is integrated. In every community there is a family doctor who lives over the polyclinic and among staff in the community. So, you have a tertiary health system which was created and sustained throughout its revolutionary history.Cuba has a relatively high number of medical workers per capita.  Officials say there are currently about 90,000 in the country of almost 11.5 million people. Decades, years, months and weeks before COVID19 ever arrived on the island — because of how the health system is structured — the government and the entire health care system, including scientists, knew where every person lived, who was at risk, what vaccines and medications they had, by going door to door in every neighborhood, making home visits with a nurse and sometimes Promotora de Salud (community health workers). Having six decades of experience like no other country or health system, they had the skills, the technology, scientific advances and human capital to deal with combating outbreaks and epidemics. Cuba had the experience of first developing and using interferons to arrest a deadly outbreak of the dengue virus in 1981. That  experience catalyzed the development of the island’s now world-leading biotech industry. The protocol Interferon — only one tool of many that Cuba has — played a crucial role in some of those previous outbreaks and epidemics, often saving seriously ill patients’ lives.Since the appearance of the first cases of COVID-19 on March 11, Cuba has reported 3,408 cases. As of today, Aug. 20, 2,794 people have recovered out of a population of 11.5 million, 526 people remain ill and there have been 88 deaths.  There have been no fatalities since Aug. 4.Compare this to the state of Georgia, which has a population of 10.5 million people.  Some 22,664 people have been hospitalized since February, and there have been 4,840 deaths. The current active number of cases is 239,133, compared to Cuba’s 526 patients who are still ill. Recovery rate in Georgia is 2%. The recovery rate in Cuba is 82%. Georgia has 455 times more people who still have the virus.Socialist gov’t and an informed peopleIn Cuba, the strength of combating COVID is reflected in the will of the socialist government, its scientists, medical personnel and informed people. There is contact tracing and people are coming together to coordinate the sewing of masks and distribution of food to the elderly and physically challenged. Recently, when there was a spike of cases in the provinces of Havana and Artemisa, the country reinstated the curfew.Cuba is leading the way to defeat COVID, not in a selfish way or in its own self-interest.  First and foremost, the country is a recognized world leader in the development of antiviral drugs and therapies for cancer, diabetes complications, and most recently for COVID-19.  More than 45 countries have requested the country’s Interferon Alpha 2B protocol.These therapies are being used around the world to treat patients and have been particularly effective helping older and more at-risk patient populations.  I think the most encouraging breakthrough occurred over the past few days when Cuba announced: “The central state enterprise management group BioCubaFarma reports having received permission to begin clinical trials of a Cuban candidate vaccine Identified as FINLAY-FR-1 to prevent COVID-19, capable of producing a strong immune reaction to a SARS-COV-2 infection.” (Granma, Aug. 20)Cuba was one of the most prepared countries in the world for COVID-19. While in many countries fighting the pandemic, it is also making major international contributions with the Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade. If I may close by saying this internationalism has been exemplified right here at home through the IFCO (Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization) partnership with the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) scholarship program since 1999. ELAM has trained over 35,000 doctors from 138 countries, including graduating 195 U.S.-trained doctors.In a post-embargo world, U.S. hospitals and research institutions would have direct access to Cuba’s drugs, therapies and doctors to potentially improve the standard of care for millions of citizens of the USA in the defeat of COVID-19.What you can do!Contact elective officials to demand that they focus on the Cuban drug known as Interferon Alfa-2B, which has been produced in China since 2003 by the Cuban-Chinese joint venture ChangHeber. Demand that the drug be allowed in the U.S. as a protocol to treat COVID-19.Endorse the Save Our Lives Campaign which, among other demands, is calling for incorporating Cuba’s Interferon Alfa 2B Recombinant in clinical trials in the U.S., Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO), and the granting by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of approval for Cuba’s Interferon Alfa 2B Recombinant.Call on elected officials to demand the repeal of Helms-Burton or to temporarily suspend the Cuban embargo, which would enable Cuba to obtain the humanitarian aid and medical supplies that it needs to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. Contact and organize local city councils to pass resolutions that support these initiatives while calling for an end to the blockade.Consider joining the next IFCO Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba.      Dr. Rosemari Mealy is with the New York-New Jersey Cuba Sí Coalition and on the Board of IFCO/Pastors for Peace.   FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Frogs snap 7-game conference losing streak

first_imgReddIt TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Facebook Twitter printTCU men’s basketball won its second conference game of the year on Monday night, snapping its 7-game conference losing streak with a win over Oklahoma State 63-56.The Frogs got off to a slow start and found themselves down 25-19 at the half. Only shooting 26 percent from the field, TCU went into the locker room at halftime on a dismal 3 for 21 shooting streak.Head coach Trent Johnson said he was able to rally his players at halftime and get their momentum back on track.“We made a conscious decision to get Brandon (Parrish) going, to get Malique (Trent) going,” Johnson said.Trent hit two three-pointers to start the second half. More scoring efforts by Brandon Parrish tied the game at 34.The Frogs’ first lead since the fifth minute came after a steal and layup by guard Chauncey Collins.Parrish said the team worked hard on defense in practice after allowing Kansas to shoot 50 percent from the field on Saturday.“We emphasized defense,” Parrish said. “We knew the offense would come. I feel like that was one of the better defensive games of the year.”The Frogs were able to hold Oklahoma State to 39 percent shooting from the field. That was partly due to the loss of Oklahoma State’s leading scorer Jawun Evans, who missed the game with a shoulder injury.Evans injured his shoulder on Feb. 3 against Texas Tech and has missed the last two games. Oklahoma State head coach Travis Ford said Evans might be out for the rest of the season with the injury.Parrish finished the game as TCU’s leading scorer with 15 points and four rebounds. Collins scored 13 points after being held scoreless in the first half. Trent, recovering from a wrist injury from Saturday’s game against Kansas, scored 12.Johnson said Trent played aggressively to start the game.“When he’s aggressive, good things happen,” Johnson said. “And when this team’s aggressive, good things happen.”Collins said a big role in the turnaround was the Frogs’ confidence.“We’ve got confidence in each other,” Collins said. “We just have to stay confident and keep putting up shots. It felt good to finally get one.”The victory for TCU was its first conference win since the Jan. 8 upset over Texas. The Frogs are now 2-9 in Big 12 Conference play, tied for ninth with Oklahoma State. Both teams sit at 11-13 overall on the season.The Frogs will travel to Morgantown on Saturday to take on No. 10 West Virginia. The Mountaineers are first in the Big 12 with an 8-2 conference record and are 19-4 overall.

Mobile technology

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Size may matter, but it’s the technology at the networklevel that’s really important when it comes to mobile phones, says Davey WinderRegular readers of this column will by now have realised that I travel afair amount in the course of my working life. In common with your executiveworkforce, I need to be able to make and receive phone calls, as well as dealwith my e-mail, while I am away. Mobile phones are nothing new, but theirphysical form is changing fast, as is the way that we use them. Recent researchby market analysts Ovum suggested that by the end of 2000, six million peoplehad accessed the Internet using a mobile phone. Look a little further forwardto the start of 2005, and the estimated figure rises to an incredible 484million. But back to the point, I recently travelled all the way to Santa Margherita,just outside Portofino in Italy, simply to look at a new mobile phone. Theoccasion was the official launch of a handset manufacturer, Sendo, whose mobilephones exemplify the way the mobile market place is changing. The first Sendohandset, the diminutive D800, due to hit the market any time now, is thelightest in the world at just 68g. Yet it manages to pack a 14.4kbps data/faxmodem, IrDA interface, high-resolution 96×64 ice blue backlit display and analarm clock-come-scheduler into its tiny frame. Impressive stuff, but not as impressive as the company’s next handset, whichshould follow a month or so after the D800, namely the S200. This takes theconcept of custom covers a step further by being modular. The core of the phoneis a thin plastic wafer containing the keypad membrane and the importantelectrical bits, but the body of the unit can be anything you want. Which meansany colour, and any shape – brand identity by mobile phone, but also a unitthat is less likely to be misplaced. But while phone handsets themselves are becoming smaller, lighter and morefeature-packed, the really exciting changes that will revolutionise the way weall think about mobile communications are happening at the network level. Youwill probably recall all the news stories last year about the billions ofpounds raised by the UK “auction” of 3G licences to mobile operators,yet you may not have realised the significance for your workforce in the yearsto come. 3G stands for “3rd generation” mobile telephone technology;we are currently at the 2nd generation stage. The networks were designed for voicecalls not data, which explains why your staff have to put up with theappallingly slow 9.6kbps transfer rates when they need to do the data thing.Anyone who has attempted to surf even the cut-down web using a WAP phone willknow how frustrating it can be; those who have tried the real thing using theirmobile as a modem deserve a medal for patience. Coming soon, in fact, already here in very small number, are the 2.5Gtechnologies. GPRS (general packet radio service) is the technical name, andthe important bit is that it is data-friendly and can, on a suitably equippednetwork and phone, shift data much faster than existing phones. BT has alreadylaunched such a service, running at 28.8kbps. Orange has adopted a slightlydifferent technology for its 2.5G service, namely HSCSD (high-speed circuitswitched data), which runs at the same speed but is tweaked to be particularlygood at video applications, such as video conferencing by mobile. Expect to seemore such services being promoted during the course of 2001. 3G services, however, will have to wait a little longer, until 2002 and mostprobably beyond, but will be worth the wait. They will combine transfer speedsat least as fast as a desktop modem, and potentially much faster indeed, withan “always-on” service similar to that of your office Internetconnection. The key term to listen out for is UMTS (universal mobiletelecommunications system), which refers to all the different technologies thatwill make up the 3G networks eventually. Once these new, faster, always-on services arrive in our pockets it willmean the start of truly mobile Internet access. So, if you have been tempted toupgrade your executives with WAP-enabled mobile phones, don’t. WAP could wellbe a “dead-in-the-water” technology almost before it starts. Hangfire for a year or two, then reap the benefits of real access to the Interneton the move. Sendo D800 and S200, price TBA. More details from Related posts:No related photos.
