Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Forget the National Lottery and NS&I Premium Bonds. I’d buy UK shares to make a million Peter Stephens | Saturday, 24th October, 2020 UK shares may not be seen as an obvious means of making a million by many people. The stock market crash has left the FTSE 100 down by around 20% since the start of the year. Other stocks have produced even worse performances in 2020.However, the long-term potential of British shares continues to be relatively attractive. As such, they could be a better use of any spare capital than the National Lottery or NS&I Premium Bonds.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 time, FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares could be a sound means of generating high returns. They may even produce a £1m portfolio as their recovery takes hold.The prospects for UK sharesUK shares may have experienced a poor performance in 2020. However, their long-term prospects continue to be relatively good. For example, the FTSE 100 has always recovered from its previous declines to post new record highs. So its current price level could represent excellent value for money for any investor with a long time horizon. They may be able to fully benefit from the index’s likely turnaround over the coming years.Certainly, there may be further challenges ahead. Risks such as Brexit and the pandemic may continue to cause weak investor sentiment and difficult operating conditions for businesses. However, previous crises have gradually fade. These have always been replaced by positive GDP growth that produces more attractive operating conditions for businesses. This could lead to improving investor sentiment that allows UK shares to post high-single-digit annual returns over the coming years.The outlook for NS&I Premium Bonds and the National LotteryMaking a million from UK shares is likely to take many years. As such, some people may decide that the prospect of making a million from NS&I Premium Bonds or the National Lottery is more appealing.However, low interest rates mean that the Premium Bonds annual prize fund is set to move to just 1% by the end of 2020. While there is still a very slim chance of winning large sums of money, the annual return is similar to that of cash savings accounts. Meanwhile, the odds of winning the National Lottery stand at just one in 45m.Making a millionBy contrast, high-single-digit returns on UK shares can be achieved by almost any investor. Even if someone has only a modest amount of money available each month, they can still generate a large portfolio over the long run. For example, investing £300 per month at the FTSE 100’s annual historic total return of 8% would produce a £1m portfolio within 40 years.With many stocks currently trading at cheap prices after the market crash, we could all improve our odds of obtaining a seven-figure portfolio by investing in a diverse range of British shares today for the long term. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Yachvili reacts after losing to New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup Final I am so proud of my team-mates for the way we played in the World Cup final.We showed pride in our jersey and incredible team spirit. Clearly we’re disappointed to lose by one point but we have to pay tribute to the All Blacks, who deserved to win. They played some really great rugby, not just in the final. They’re the best in the world.We showed the best of French rugby in that final. We played with our heart and it almost took us to victory. People doubted us when we lost to Tonga in the pool stage but we kept our focus and solidarity. For us, there were two World Cups in one – one for the pool stage and one for the knockout matches.France faced up to the Haka, and also faced an automatic £2,500 fineAfter the Tonga game we had a big meeting and told the coaches we were lost with the game plan. So we decided to go back to basics, get the simple things right. That allowed us to come back. And as we received a lot of criticism from everybody, we said, ‘We are a family.’ We stayed united, and even though everyone thought we’d lose by 30 points in the final, we told ourselves, ‘Is there any risk for us? No. Let’s play.’We had a number of important leaders – our captain Thierry Dusautoir, Lionel Nallet, and Morgan Parra – who helped galvanise us during the knockout stages. Morgan was one of seven leading fly-halves to be injured at RWC 2011. Incredible!Many people will remember the final for the way we responded to the haka. We wanted to start the game during the haka and it showed our intent. We wanted to put them under pressure, show them how hard it would be to beat us.When we were closest to them, we saw in their eyes that they were very surprised (France were fined £2,500 for moving in too close). But when you do this, you have to be excellent afterwards – and I think we were.Before the final we resolved that we would give everything, so we would have no regrets. I believe we did that. In the changing room after the final there were some laughs, many tears, and deep words between men who appreciate each other.There was an amazing atmosphere in New Zealand and I will have fond memories of the 2011 World Cup. New Zealand is a country of rugby and it was our dream to play a World Cup final against the All Blacks at Eden Park. And the future for me? Well, I’m 31 but I want to stay at the top with Les Bleus and build on what we’ve done in 2011.This article appeared in the December 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

The Commission says the list will be updated quarterly to include new organisations and to remove those no longer recognised as such by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).Last month the Commission formally announced the introduction of charity regulation to Northern Ireland.The move allows CCNI to begin its investigatory, compliance, enforcement and regulatory scrutiny of all charities currently registered with HMRC for tax purposes, and will begin the regulators efforts to increase public trust and confidence in charities.The step brings into effect some of the key provisions of the Charities Act (NI) 2008. However, the introduction of a full register of all charities in Northern Ireland has been delayed by a technical problem with the wording of the original legislation. Plans to amend the Charities Act (NI) 2008 are currently being considered by the Minister for Social Development.www.charitycommissionni.org.uk Northern Ireland charity list now available About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

printA visit decades ago by one of America’s most iconic leaders will be immortalized in downtown Fort Worth. On Oct. 22, 1959, Civil Rights leader and minister Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made a visit to Fort Worth and now, 58 years later, his visit will be commemorated by the placing of the MLK Memorial Landmark Plaque and Pedestal. The monument was proposed by the Tarrant County Southern Christian Leadership Conference chapter (SCLC) and supported by other academic institutions in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The proposal was accepted as part of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce Foundation Heritage Trails in Downtown Fort Worth said president of the local SCLC chapter Rev. Kyev Tatum.King was invited by Vada Felder, the first African American graduate of the Brite Divinity School. He befriended her at a church meeting in Nashville, Tennessee where she asked him to visit the city to deliver a sermon later that year. Upon his arrival, King was met with hate and angry threats. He was forbidden from speaking at TCU and was not allowed to stay at any hotels, so he stayed at Felder’s house. He spoke twice, once in the morning at a prayer breakfast for Brite faculty at social and Christian ethics professor Dr. Harold Lunger’s home, and second at the Fort Worth Majestic Theater in downtown where the memorial gets its name.“It should be noted that the Majestic Theater was the first establishment to quietly integrate in Fort Worth when it allowed blacks to enter through the front door of the theater and sit in the lower seats to hear Dr. King speak,” Tatum said. “It was truly a great day to be alive in Fort Worth, Texas.” President John F. Kennedy’s memorial in Downtown Fort Worth (http://www.presidentsusa.net/jfkmemorialftworth.html)He spoke at the now-gone theater to a crowd of about 400 who paid $1.25 to see him inside. His sermon was entitled “A Great Time to Be Alive”, which addressed “the struggle to save the soul of America.”The marker will be located in General Worth Square across the street from the John F. Kennedy landmark. The memorial plaque ceremony will be held Wednesday, April 4 on the 50th Anniversary of King’s assassination.

Facebook TAGS By Digital AIM Web Support – February 22, 2021 Local NewsBusiness Pinterest Twitter Xcel Energy Sets Another Single-Year Record in Carbon Reduction MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– For the second year in a row, Xcel Energy has hit a significant milestone in its quest to deliver 100% carbon-free electricity to customers by 2050. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210222005590/en/ Xcel Energy Fuel Mix 2019-2020 (Graphic: Business Wire) The company broke its own record for a single-year drop in emissions in 2020, cutting carbon emissions company-wide by approximately six million tons, a 12% reduction over 2019 levels. That’s equivalent to taking nearly 1.2 million cars off the road for a year. In 2019, Xcel Energy achieved a 10% reduction over the previous year. Since 2005, the company has reduced carbon emissions by 51% as it leads the nation’s clean energy transition. Xcel Energy’s 2020 carbon reductions outpaced the industry, which is ahead of any other part of the economy. At the end of 2020, it is estimated the U.S. electric power sector had reduced carbon emissions just under 40% from 2005 levels, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. “We’re making tremendous progress towards delivering on our clean energy goals,” said Ben Fowke, chairman and CEO of Xcel Energy. “Even after factoring in the effect of the global pandemic on our operations, we are well on our way to achieving our goal of reducing carbon emissions 80% by 2030 and are more than halfway to delivering 100% carbon-free electricity to our customers, all while keeping their service reliable and energy bills low.” Several factors contributed to the 2020 carbon reduction results. Xcel Energy continued to significantly increase wind generation on its system, becoming one of the first energy providers in the United States to reach 10,000 megawatts of wind energy capacity online for customers in the states it serves. The company added more than 800 megawatts of new wind projects in late 2019, in addition to bringing nearly 2,200 megawatts of new wind projects online in 2020. By the end of 2021, Xcel Energy estimates that approximately 35% of its energy will be from wind. Through the company’s wind expansion, it has delivered approximately $430 million in fuel savings to its customers from 2017 to 2020. Thanks to having more wind and solar on its system, the company recorded a 12% reduction in megawatt hours from coal and natural gas generation. To support its growing renewable energy portfolio, it is using cleaner natural gas as backup and pushing the envelope in operating its remaining coal plants to follow the wind and sun. Xcel Energy’s two nuclear plants in Minnesota had another excellent operating year, providing a steady supply of 100% carbon-free power. The pandemic also played a role in reducing the company’s electricity sales by an estimated 3% for the year and contributing to lower carbon emissions. About Xcel Energy Xcel Energy (NASDAQ: XEL) provides the energy that powers millions of homes and businesses across eight Western and Midwestern states. Headquartered in Minneapolis, the company is an industry leader in responsibly reducing carbon emissions and producing and delivering clean energy solutions from a variety of renewable sources at competitive prices.

[The background facts of this can be read here] Disagreeing with this approach, the bench, also comprising Justices Vineet Saran and S. Ravindra Bhat, took note of the statutory provisions of Criminal Procedure Code and said:”It is only after taking of the cognizance and issuance of process that the accused is entitled, in terms of Sections 207 and 208 of the Code, to copies of the documents referred to in said provisions. The filing of the charge-sheet by itself, does not entitle an accused to copies of any of the relevant documents including statement under Section 164 of the Code, unless the stages indicated above are undertaken. Thus, merely because the charge-sheet was filed by the time the High Court had passed the order in the present matter, did not entitle Respondent No.2 to a copy of the statement under Section 164 of the Code.”The court further clarified that no person is entitled to a copy of statement recorded under Section 164 of the Code till the appropriate orders are passed by the court after the charge-sheet is filed. It said:”The right to receive a copy of such statement will arise only after cognizance is taken and at the stage contemplated by Sections 207 and 208 of the Code and not before.””Though, a copy of the statement recorded under Section 164 of the Code was made over to the accused, we must set aside the order passed by the High Court and lay down that under no circumstances copies of statements recorded under Section 164 of the Code can be furnished till appropriate orders are passed by the Court after taking cognizance in the matter.”Case no.: CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.659 OF 2020 Case name: MISS “A” VS.
