What’s the best way to make a million in the stock market? Ask 100 people and you’ll likely get 100 different answers. But the method I’d use is one that US investing legend Warren Buffett has often mentioned. It’s also simple and cheap.Getting started: £20kMy plans are based on the goal goal of hitting £1m at age 60. In my view, a £20k lump sum could be enough to make that happen.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 has often commented that for most investors, he thinks an index tracker fund is the best way to invest. He’s at pains to point out that very few investors consistently beat the market, even professionals.Over the last century or so, the long-term average return from the UK stock market has been about 8% per year, including dividends. Past performance isn’t a reliable guide to the future. But I estimate that if average returns remain the same in the future, it would take 50 years for my £20k investment to hit £1m.If I’d started my index tracker investment at age 20, I’d just make it to £1m by the age of 70.This is a great example of why it makes sense to start a Stocks and Shares ISA for children when they’re as young as possible. But it’s not much good to me now. My 20s are a distant memory.Juice things upWhile I’m still working, I aim to make regular monthly payments into my ISA. Adding these to my initial £20k should improve my returns significantly.For example, my sums indicate that investing an extra £250 per month in a FTSE 100 tracker fund could see me make a million after 37 years. Similarly, increasing my monthly payment to £400 could see me hit £1m after just 33 years.By combining regular monthly payments and an initial lump sum, I should be able to speed up my progress. But 33 years is still a long time. Is there anything else I could do to improve my returns?Could I make a million with growth stocks?Investing in small, speculative growth stocks can deliver much bigger profits. But it’s a specialist area with a lot of potential risk. It’s easy to lose a lot of money, as many growth companies don’t succeed.After all, the UK stock market has 1,117 companies valued at under £500m, but only 174 companies valued at over £2bn. Most small companies stay small.When I’m looking for growth, I prefer to focus on the FTSE 250. These mid-sized companies are generally already profitable and successful. They’re big enough to survive when times are tough, but still small enough to deliver strong growth.The FTSE 250 has risen by 76% over the last 10 years, compared to just 13% for the FTSE 100. I can’t be sure this outperformance will continue. But to improve my chances of benefiting from the success of smaller growth stocks, I’d put half my cash into a FTSE 250 tracker and half into the FTSE 100.To increase my exposure to proven winners, I might also use some of my funds to build a portfolio of hand-picked quality stocks. I’d look for companies with above-average profit margins and a track record of beating the market.I’d hope that taking this approach might provide the boost I’ll need to reach my £1m goal by the time I’m 60.

Often, a plan begins in one way and then it takes new contours. This was the situation that happened with the owners of this residence, with 250m², signed by the Rassini Arquitetura, an office from São Paulo. Localized in Itatiba, a city near to the capital of São Paulo, the architect Felipe Rassini says that a couple of clients looked for him with an initial intention of building a house as an investment plan. Rassini Arquitetura’s actuation has started looking for the perfect land, inside a medium standard condominium. It was important prerogatives to achieve that they asked: build a single storey house on a large plot with special dedication for lighting issues, natural ventilation and finishes.Save this picture!© Edson FerreiraSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Edson FerreiraAfter choosing a land of 1,150m², Rassini Arquitetura developed the architectural project. Inspired by the Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion, located in the city of Barcelona, the architect brought the large glass panels that contribute for the light and natural vegetation being always present in every environment of the house. Tied to this, the residence brings another premise requested by the owners: the integration among internal and external environments. For them, the house should also be clear and comfortable – not small nor large -, easy to maintain and built with materials of great finishing. The first solution presented to the client was a modulation created to facilitate the construction. The architect developed a module of 6x3m and, from it, arise the living room, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms.Save this picture!Section ASave this picture!Section CSave this picture!Section DAll home environments were arranged in such a way that natural light could always be the protagonist. The leisure area was born alongside the master house, but as a matter of terrain stood 2m below the main building. Even so, fully integrated. In the living room, with generous ceilings of 4,5m Rassini Arquitetura has chosen the comfort of the sofa in “L”, propitious to enjoy the weekends. Charles Eames armchair was the choice for morning reading. From any point of the room, the view is the green landscape. The integration of living room, dining room and the kitchen was another solution suggested and approved by the clients. In this house, all rooms speak to each other and none are isolated. Even the outsiders are visually integrated. Only one corridor, enclosed with wood and glass, separates the social area from the reserved one. It crosses the Jabuticabeira Courtyard.Save this picture!© Edson FerreiraThe fruit tree has an interesting story: acquired as a “baby tree”, with four years old, the desire is that the Jabucatibeira grows in partner with grandchildren’s owners. Rassini Arquitetura has developed three bedrooms, being of them a suite. The bathrooms were thought generously. The house has only one type of floor: natural porcelain tile. The decision is justified by the ease of cleaning and also to reaffirm the integration of the environments. In the leisure area, pool and gourmet area. For the days of intense heat and parties! The decor was designed in a second step. “After verifying the construction, the couple that until then was focused on the house as an investment decided to keep the house as their property”, tells the architect. In neutral tones, the decoration presents a clear base – predominantly for the shades of beige, white and blue, which blends with the exterior green. The furniture, straight and neat, and lighter, helped keep the attention for the external area of the house.Save this picture!© Edson FerreiraProject gallerySee allShow lessBoarding House for an Agricultural School / Technical University of Berlin / CODE Ch…Selected Projects1 in 7 Women in Architecture Have Experienced Sexual Harassment in Past 12 Months, R…Architecture News Share Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeRassini ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesItatibaBrazilPublished on February 08, 2018Cite: “House in Itatiba / Rassini Arquitetura” 08 Feb 2018.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodEGGERLaminatesText description provided by the architects. Soboro is a two-bedroom house close to Victoria Park in east London. The building combines the tactile qualities of cast in-situ concrete with the precision of pre-cast panels. The restricted site and demand for a unique building suggested an essay in concrete. The new house was built on a small footprint in part of the large garden of an end-of-terrace Victoria stucco villa – no mean feat in terms of planning and logistics. Using a paired back minimal palette of concrete and timber the simple form of the house has a strong presence on the street. A two storey frontage belies the true volume within the house. The reason being the cavernous basement which extends under the garden of the original villa. The idea of carving the house from the existing garden came early in the design process and influenced the look of the building.Save this picture!© Henry WoideSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Henry WoideVolumes have been extracted and added to the main mass – at the front a terrace has been created and clad in wood, to the rear, an extension to one of the bedrooms also clad in the same material. Further voids in the overall composition appear as lightwells to the front and rear. These touch on the possibility that the house is floating above the rough textured basement walls while allowing shafts of natural light to illuminate the underground space. Exposing the underlying strata was further developed to give each level of the house a different feel. Rustication was explored in the raw tactile nature of the concrete in the basement, which gets smoother through the three levels. The varying character of the concrete was achieved by utilising different methods for above and below ground. In order to emphasise the concept that the house had been hewn from the land, roughcast in-situ concrete has been used in the basement. This gives the space a unique feel, with no two board-marked panels the same. Slender vertical boards were carefully chosen to suggest the house had been pulled from the earth, the lines enhancing the generous floor to ceiling height. Throughout the day the path of the sun is tracked along these uniform yet irregular walls. The orientation of the patios was chosen to maximise the borrowed light into the subterranean living space.Save this picture!© Henry WoideAbove ground the glass like texture of the concrete was achieved by using pre-cast concrete concrete panels. With a layer of insulation sandwiched between the concrete a smooth finish could achieved both internally and externally. In keeping with the rusticated approach, externally the ground floor has been grit blasted to differentiate it from the fair faced top floor. Polished fair faced internally reflects the light throughout the dwelling. In keeping with the pared back palette other elements such as walls, doors, staircase and storage have been treated as furniture inserted into the concrete shell. The joinery reads like a highly crafted piece of workmanship, the precise junctions and natural grain of the birch faced plywood complemented by the concrete. On such a small site a generous house has emerged, the digging, shuttering, casting and craftsmanship clearly apparent both inside and out.Save this picture!© Henry WoideProject gallerySee allShow lessInnovative Uses of Water in ArchitectureArticlesHạ Long House / TOOB STUDIOSelected Projects Share Soboro House / kennedytwaddleSave this projectSaveSoboro House / kennedytwaddle CopyHouses•London, United Kingdom Architects: kennedytwaddle Area Area of this architecture project Soboro House / kennedytwaddle “COPY” Area:  140 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project United Kingdom Year: last_img read more

Death row survivors, families & activists march for abolition

first_imgHoustonians with the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement at the Capitol.Activists marched down Congress Avenue from the Texas Capitol building in Austin on Nov. 2, chanting “Texas says death row, we say hell no!” They demanded, “The death penalty? Shut it down! Racist courts? Shut ‘em down! The whole damn system? Shut it down!”Death row exonerees led protesters through Austin’s busy shopping and dining district to the governor’s mansion and back to the Capitol. This was the 14th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty, which began in 2000 when George W. Bush was governor of Texas.“It was so moving to hear from Ron Keine, Shujaa Graham, Albert Burrell and Gary Drinkard, men who were innocent and yet spent many years on death rows from California to Arizona to Alabama to Louisiana,” said Jeroen van Wisse. He stressed that it was “horrifying to hear how totally innocent people could be ripped from their families, their children and locked up to be executed.”Van Wisse and Petra De Jong traveled to Texas from the Netherlands to witness the execution of their friend, Jamie McCoskey, on Nov. 12.The death row families who spoke and attended were an inspiration to all. The rally was co-chaired by Delia Perez-Meyer, sister of Louis Perez, whose case has been taken by The Innocence Project. Marilyn Shankle- Grant spoke for her son, Paul Storey, who was sent to death row under Texas’ infamous Law of Parties. Regina Guidry was there for her spouse, Howard Guidry.Four brothers and half a dozen friends of Juan Ramirez wore T-shirts imprinted with his photograph. Adelina Guajardo and her daughter attended for the first time to support her son, Gustavo Garcia, who has been on death row for 21 years. They, too, wore T-shirts bearing the image of their family member.Lawrence Foster, the grandfather of former death row prisoner Kenneth Foster, told of the victorious struggle that won his grandson a commutation to life in prison only hours before his execution in August 2007.Sandra Reed and her sons march every year for her innocent son, Rodney Reed. They and other supporters of Rodney wore T-shirts, reading, “Free Rodney Reed!” The crowd broke out in cheers when Rodney’s brother, Roderick, spoke to them.Photographer John Holbrook brought larger-than-life photos of Randy Greer, Louis Perez, Tony Ford and other men on death row, which people held up during the rally.The Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, a march sponsor, took a bus from Houston filled with activists of all nationalities and genders, ranging from age 1 to 84, united in their passion for abolition. Yadira Franco, who is from Los Angeles, traveled on the bus with De Jong. Franco is still trying to recover from witnessing the execution of her friend, Bobby Garza, on Sept. 19.Other sponsors of the actions were the Texas Moratorium Network, the Austin chapter of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, and the S.H.A.P.E. Community Center in Houston, where the Abolition Movement is based.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Obviously, our economic signals have become mixed. On Friday, consumer sentiment at 84.5 beat the estimate at 83.7, but consumer spending fell .2% to a one year low. 1Q GDP contracted to 2.4% and not much better is foreseen. Next Friday we will have the monthly employment report and any over 200,000 new jobs would be encouraging. If left along our economy will gradually improve, but the environment has changed. Many fall back jobs, like working at a gas station have disappeared, as that has been the case for many manufacturing positions. If a job does not make anything, it does not pay as much.China’s economy has been undergoing growing pain reductions for months. Europe holds lots of conferences but accomplishes little.Goldman Sachs reaffirmed its judgment that the bond market is taking at beating. 10 year note rates have risen 22% in the last few months. The interest rate sensitive Utility average has lost nearly 10%.The equity markets are drunk with computer speculation. Money has been moving out of commodities into stocks, which is a hyper example of a historical trend. I have been through many such gyrations in my fifty years on LaSalle Street.OPEC has ebbed as US oil production ramps up, as it should have back in 1973. WTI crude oil fell below $93, in a range of $90-100.Weather has done a 180 degree turn from bone dry to soaked, in all but the Western Corn Belt and the fringe of the plains. The rough estimate is that 2-3 million acres of corn will be replanted to shorter maturity seed, or switched to soybeans. Yield potentials are good. June and July will be the maker months in corn. We will not have a survey crop estimate until August and it could be a bumpy ride.GMO unapproved issues regarding Oregon wheat have caused Japan and South Korea to require more testing, but the market impact has been slight as Oregon wheat is just a fraction of a fraction of our production.. Japan has dominated the PNW wheat for decades.Weekly export sales were fair with China buying some of each.The Mississippi River is currently closed in some areas due to flooding, whereas a few months ago it was too low.Lead contract cattle and hogs firmed a bit near weeks end. Cash cattle, were reluctant to trade and expectations were for steady at $124-125. Choice beef pulled back slightly from record highs, but at the meat counter, consumer budgets can not endure such high prices. Pork showed a bit of upside momentum, but there were not many offerings of pork in the weekly features. The buying of the troubled pork operation of Smithfield by the Chinese may mean more pork exports, but current levels are minute. Weekly export sales totaled 19,000 tons of beef and 15,000 tons pork.

Pakistani investigative reporter accused of “cyber-terrorism”
