Bitcoin is nearing its all-time high of $20,000, but instead of buying the cryptocurrency today, I prefer to follow the lead of top investor Warren Buffett. He built his wealth through shares and, in a much more modest way, that’s what I plan to do as well.I’m not against Bitcoin. I actually have a little crypto in my portfolio, so I’m cheering its upwards climb. I just don’t think this is the right way to get rich and retire early. It’s just too much of a gamble.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…Warren Buffett didn’t become the world’s most successful investor by investing in things he didn’t get, like I don’t quite get Bitcoin. One of his most famous quotes addressing this issue? “Never invest in a business you cannot understand.”I won’t go big on BitcoinAs Warren Buffett’s quote suggests, you must always understand the fundamentals of anything you invest in. What it does, how it operates, and what’s the point of it. These are questions I struggle to answer when it comes to Bitcoin. I bought it for the reason many people do. FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). Happily at a far lower value than today.Of course, I still missed out, because I should have bought loads more. That’s another problem with Bitcoin. Whatever you do, you end up feeling like you’ve missed out. Buying at today’s price of $18,350 is incredibly risky. Given its volatile history, I think it’s much more likely to fall than rise from here.Ask yourself why are you buying Bitcoin, and whether your reasoning makes sense. As Warren Buffett said: “Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.” I’ve had no idea of what I was doing, at any stage of the Bitcoin trading process. It’s different with shares.Buying shares is making an investment in the real-world productive economy, buying companies in key sectors such as energy, property, banking, pharmaceuticals and commodities. They generate value in the way that Bitcoin doesn’t.Plan retirement the Warren Buffett wayI think now’s a great time to buy UK shares for my retirement, as the FTSE 100 has underperformed global rivals. If we get some kind of Brexit certainty, that could reverse in 2021. I could see the FTSE 100 powering beyond 7,000.I think UK shares have much greater scope for growth than Bitcoin. Also, they pay dividends, and no crypto does that. I’d invest inside a Stocks and Shares ISA for tax-free returns.If today’s stock market volatility makes you nervous, you could set up a regular monthly investment plan instead. If you invested £250 a month and the FTSE 100 delivered an average return of 7%, you’d have £303,219 after 30 years. After 40 years, you’d have £640,828. That’s the timescale you need to be thinking about when investing for retirement. As Warren Buffett said: “Our ideal holding period is forever.”That’s why I’m buying cheap shares, not pricey Bitcoin. Forget Bitcoin! I’d listen to Warren Buffett and invest £250 a month in an ISA to retire rich
Click here to see the Women’s RBS 6 Nations fixtures Catherine Spencer, who most recently led England to the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup Final, has decided to step down as England captain ahead of the new international season. Spencer was England’s captain for three seasons, taking over the armband in 2007 from Sue Day. Since then the Bristol No.8 has led England to three successive RBS 6 Nations titles, two Nations Cup crowns and last year’s Rugby World Cup final which England narrowly lost 13-10 to reigning world champions New Zealand.Spencer, who remains in the England Elite squad and plans to be involved in next month’s RBS 6 Nations championship, said: “My decision to stand down as England captain has, without doubt, been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. I have become very attached to the captaincy over the last three years so it is extremely hard to let go of something that I care very deeply about.“There are many reasons why I would dearly love to continue being England captain but the time is right for me to step down. I am very determined to keep playing for England and to perform to the best of my abilities. I believe that I still have the potential to improve as a player and will be working very hard to make new gains.“There have been many highs during my time as England captain both on and off the pitch. From attending various dinners and functions to leading England to victory over New Zealand at Twickenham in November 2009. I have felt extremely proud of captaining this England team; their hard work and determination and the manner in which they have represented their sport to an ever increasing audience is truly inspiring.” Spencer added: “I wish my successor all of my support; only when they become England captain will they fully understand what an incredible honour it is and only then will they experience the amazing emotions that come with leading an England team out on to a pitch.”England Head Coach Gary Street added: “I would personally like to thank Catherine for the excellent way she has conducted herself on and off the pitch – she has been a fantastic role model for any aspiring player. This season gives Catherine the opportunity to concentrate purely on her rugby and I am sure she will support the new captain and continue to be an inspiring influence in the squad.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS read more

The temporary cathedral structure is visible behind him. Photo/Joseph Constant[Episcopal News Service] La estación de Adviento en la Diócesis Episcopal de Haití está cargada de posibilidades porque su catedral de la Santa Trinidad en Puerto Príncipe, como imagen de un nuevo edificio en el corazón de la diócesis, ha comenzado a cobrar forma.Se espera que una solicitud de propuestas arquitectónicas se dé a conocer “en un futuro muy próximo”, dijo recientemente a Episcopal News Service el Rdo. John A. Runkle, director asesor de proyecto para el equipo de ‘Reconstruir Nuestra Iglesia en Haití’ que se ocupa de la reconstrucción de la catedral.“La catedral va a convertirse para muchos en Puerto Príncipe en un símbolo muy profundo de esperanza, de inspiración, de refugio, de estabilidad, de recuperación de un estado de ánimo positivo”, dijo Runkle, a quien nombraron en ese puesto a principios del otoño.Runkle, que una vez fuera el conservador de la Catedral Nacional de Washington, es arquitecto titular y ha trabajado con frecuencia en proyectos relacionados con monumentos arquitectónicos o culturales.A petición de Jean Zaché Duracin, obispo de Haití, la catedral ha de ser el primer proyecto de reconstrucción en la diócesis después del terremoto. La campaña de recaudación de fondos ‘Reconstruir Nuestra Iglesia en Haití’ destinada a ayudar a esa obra, se inauguró formalmente en el primer aniversario del terremoto.Terri Mathes, miembro de la Fundación de la Iglesia Episcopal (ECF), quien se encuentra al frente de la campaña, declaró recientemente ante el Consejo Ejecutivo que el empeño “ha creado un sentido de comunidad en las diócesis y entre las diócesis que acaso no habían estado antes tan interconectadas sobre un asunto en particular”. Ella calificó de “espectacular” el índice de participación a través de la Iglesia.Donald Romanik, presidente de la ECF, dijo al Consejo que “esta campaña le ha dado a la gente de la Iglesia, tanto en las congregaciones como en las diócesis, herramientas para la recaudación de fondos, ha levantado un liderazgo y ha recaudado y continuará recaudando dólares”. Tanto él como Mathes predijeron que la estructura y los talentos que se han desarrollado hasta ahora durante la campaña servirán a la Iglesia en futuros empeños, además de dar lugar a una amplia discusión sobre la financiación de la misión y el ministerio de la Iglesia.Mathes le dijo más tarde a ENS que la campaña no está preparada para dar información sobre el monto de dinero recaudado.“Nos han aconsejado que no demos a conocer una cifra real porque conlleva amenazas a la seguridad de las personas que trabajan en Haití”, dijo. “La recaudación de fondos ha marchado muy bien y se dispone de una cantidad substancial para comenzar la planificación arquitectónica y la construcción. Necesitaremos bastante más para llegar a terminar la catedral”.Los costos estimativos oficiales de la reconstrucción se basarán en los planos presentados por el arquitecto o arquitectos que hayan resultado escogidos en el proceso de licitación.Como sucede siempre que se planifica la construcción de cualquier iglesia, no faltan ideas de lo que deba abarcar una nueva catedral episcopal en el corazón de Puerto Príncipe, dijo Runkle.“Todo el mundo tiene una visión, todo el mundo tiene el deseo de crear una nueva catedral, y parte del arduo trabajo que hemos estado haciendo en los últimos dos meses es intentar integrar la visión y los deseos de todos y lograr que todo el mundo armonice de manera que estemos unificados respecto a la manera de seguir adelante”, agregó Runkle. “Eso exige esfuerzo, exige conversación, exige ser muy receptivo y dialogar”.Ya algunas ideas parecen claras. El edificio mismo debe reflejar la belleza de la cultura haitiana, dijo Runkle. Además, los tres murales religiosos que sobreviven, de los 14 que una vez llenaban el interior de la catedral, se incorporarán al nuevo diseño.Los murales mundialmente famosos que representaban historias bíblicas en motivos haitianos, creados por algunos de los más notables pintores de Haití en el siglo XX, se añadieron, a la catedral neogótica de los años veinte, a fines de los años cuarenta y principios de los cincuenta. Otras pinturas y tallas en madera adornaban también el interior del edificio.Esta especie de adornos artísticos de la antigua catedral eran para los haitianos “una forma de culto -una expresión de devoción a Dios- y definitivamente debían ser parte del nuevo espacio de adoración”, afirmó Runkle. “¿De qué precisa manera vamos a hacer eso, no lo sé”.Él dijo también que esperaba que los murales que habían sobrevivido no se exhibieran simplemente como piezas de museo en una suerte de santuario; que será importante que el arquitecto o los arquitectos elegidos tengan experiencia de trabajar en Haití o en el Caribe para garantizar que entienden la cultura artística del país tanto como el ambiente laboral, y agregó que ha habido conversaciones de una posible asociación entre firmas haitianas y estadounidenses.El adaptar el estatus de la Santa Trinidad como un punto central en Puerto Príncipe, dijo Runkle, se espera que el nuevo edificio sea capaz, en alguna emergencia futura, de convertirse en “un puerto seguro, un refugio, un lugar que pueda ofrecer socorro y ayuda si otras cosas en su entorno no pueden hacerlo”. El edificio podría lograr eso siendo resistente a huracanes y terremotos, capaz de generar su propia electricidad, de filtrar el agua y de tener capacidad de telecomunicaciones durante una emergencia, sugirió.Se espera también que el edificio será sensible al medio ambiente. Podría incluir tanto material como pudiera reciclarse del edificio destruido, utilizar materiales autóctonos cuando sea posible, se contemplará la instalación de paneles para captar la energía solar y se investigará la manera de recoger y usar el agua lluvia. Runkle dijo que hay esperanzas de que el edificio sea ambientalmente sostenible y un modelo de la nueva construcción en Haití.Runkle agregó que en la calle se rumora que la construcción en Haití “va a dispararse en un futuro próximo” y a algunos les preocupa que “los más necesitados de trabajo -los haitianos- puedan resultar excluidos” si los contratistas internacionales traen a sus propios obreros. Por consiguiente, cuando llegue el momento en que se abran las licitaciones para un contratista general de obras, se espera incluir el requisito de emplear a trabajadores, artesanos calificados y artistas haitianos.“Queremos estar seguros de que el pueblo haitiano construya su catedral”, recalcó.Además de todos estos objetivos, hay tres componentes fundamentales que deben quedar claramente detallados en la propuesta arquitectónica, resaltó Runkle. Ellos son una descripción legal del terreno a utilizar; una descripción de las “necesidades funcionales” a que responderá el edificio -tales como el número de asientos en el espacio de culto, las funciones diocesanas que deben encontrar acomodo, los requisitos musicales y el espacio destinado a reuniones-; y lo que él llamó un presupuesto realista.El complejo de la Santa Trinidad incluía la Escuela de Música de la Santa Trinidad, la Escuela Profesional de la Santa Trinidad, una escuela primaria y otra secundaria y un convento de las hermanas de Santa Margarita (St. Margaret ], además del edificio de la catedral. Hay discusiones en proceso respecto a la relocalización temporal de las escuelas, explicó Runkle, pero el objetivo es traerlas de nuevo a los predios de la catedral. Ese empeño, y su financiación, serán apartes de la construcción de la catedral.La parte dedicada a la educación en los terrenos de la catedral es emblemática del “evangelio integral” que, según dijera Duracin, la diócesis ha predicado y practicado desde su fundación en 1861, y que ha servido a las necesidades físicas y emocionales, tanto como espirituales, de los haitianos.Ese ministerio continúa aun después del terremoto. La oficina de ayuda y desarrollo de la diócesis, conocida como Centre Diocesain de Developpement et de Secours, asociada con Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales, sigue sirviendo a todo el país en los terrenos de la educación, la salud pública, la protección ambiental, la asistencia alimentaria, los microcréditos y la ayuda de emergencia a corto plazo.—La Rda.

The site management agreement (SMA) will decide where, when, and how many street fundraisers can operate in the city, and will reduce numbers in the city centre.Birmingham’s agreement joins the other 125 that are already in place with other councils around the country. According to the IoF, nearly 90% of councils surveyed would recommend an agreement to other local authorities.Peter Hills-Jones IoF compliance director, said:“Charity fundraisers will warmly welcome today’s important announcement that a well-balanced approach to sustainable fundraising in the city centre has been reached. The success of the pilot highlights that these agreements work for both the public and Britain’s charities. Charity fundraising is more important than ever as charities rely on the generosity and support of the public.”Chris Neville, head of licensing at Birmingham City Council added: Advertisement Melanie May | 3 May 2017 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Street fundraising agreement gets the go ahead in Birmingham “Following the success of our trial agreement with the Institute of Fundraising, introduced last July, there’s been a significant reduction in the number of complaints we receive about face-to-face fundraising and its impact on the public and local businesses.“This new 12-month agreement will see fewer fundraisers in the city centre, which we welcome, and we will continue to work in partnership with IoF going forward.”Previously, Birmingham City Council had sought to introduce a byelaw to impose restrictions on face-to-face fundraising in the city, but this was turned down in 2014 in a move that was welcomed by the IoF, which recommends SMAs to regulate street and door-to-door fundraising.Last November, the IoF announced that it had seen a significant improvement in street fundraising standards. The total number of recorded rule infractions by street fundraisers had fallen by 62% in the six months according to its half-year figures, compared to the previous year. While the average number of breaches in 2015/16 was 38 per month, the figure had fallen to 17 per month. 181 total views, 1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi said “As per, provisions of Commissions of Inquiry Act in particular section 4,5 and 9 thereof the state government will take instruction on the question of empowering the Retd Judge, under the said act.”Advocate Shridhar Prabhu appearing for petitioner Girish Bharadwaj informed the court that certain powers under the Commissions of Inquiry Act be conferred on the claims Commissioner for conducting the inquiry. He submitted that any action taken in good faith by the retired judge needs to be protected under section 9 of the Act.The bench agreed with the submissions and said “This is a sensitive matter nobody should subject the retired high court judge to any sort of proceedings.”The Court had appointed Justice Kempanna as the Claims Commissioner after an application was moved by the State Government. The state had relied on the directions issued by the Supreme Court of India, in its judgment dated 16.04.2009, in Re: Destruction of Public and Private Properties, (2009) 5 4 SCC 212, for the appointment of the Claims Commissioner.Additional Solicitor General, M B Nargund informed the court that the decision to transfer two cases in regards to the D J Halli and K G Halli riots case, in which provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, have been applied to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), is under active consideration and he will be able to place the order of the Central government in that respect within one weeks time. On September 11, Special Public Prosecutor for NIA, P Prasanna Kumar had informed the court that “He has received oral communication that Central government is likely to pass order transferring investigation of two cases where UAPA has been applied to NIA.”As per the police case on the evening of August 11, a mob of around 300 people gathered near D.J. Halli Police Station, protesting against an allegedly derogatory comment on Prophet Mohammed, posted by one P. Naveen on his Facebook page. An FIR was lodged on the basis of a complaint submitted by one Firdous Pasha, for offences under Section 295-A and 153 of the Indian Penal Code.They then proceeded to gather outside the residence of Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy, who is an MLA, from Pulikeshi Nagar constituency and caused extensive damage to his house and property.The mob was then joined by a large number of miscreants from adjoining areas and they began to set fire to police vehicles and attacked police personnel of D.J. Halli and K.G. Halli Police Stations, by throwing stones at the building and attacking them with deadly weapons. Later, the mob resorted to arson and set fire to the basement of the D.J. Halli Police Station building and destroyed Government properties located within the premises of the Police Station.More than 80 police personnel were injured in the violence. The mob also burnt private vehicles and property, caused extensive damage to buildings of private and commercial establishments, and also looted them. A total of 64 criminal cases have been registered so far and investigation is under process.Next Story read more
