Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images For most people, accumulating a £1m nest egg might seem like an unrealistic prospect. However, it really is possible to hit this milestone in just a few decades with a strict savings and investment plan.Today, I’m going to highlight the strategy you could use to make £1m in the stock market by 65 from 40. That’s just 25 years of saving and investing. 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…Get some helpTo hit the million-pound milestone, you’re going to need as much help as possible. With this being the case, it would be sensible to open up a SIPP. These tax-efficient retirement products are tremendous tools for pension savers. Any contributions into a SIPP are entitled to tax relief at your marginal tax rate. That’s 20% for basic rate taxpayers.You can contribute to a maximum of £40,000 a year without losing this tax relief. The situation is more complicated for higher and additional rate taxpayers. Nonetheless, they can still achieve significant tax benefits using a SIPP.Under this structure, for every £80 a basic rate taxpayer contributes, the government will add an additional £20, taking the total to £100. This will help you reach that £1m marker much faster.Start investingWhen you’ve opened a SIPP and started filling it up, the next step is to start investing your money. There are many stocks and different investment funds out there you can buy. However, the easiest way to invest in the market is to own a simple index tracker fund.For example, over the past three-and-a-half decades, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have returned around 9% and 12% per annum respectively.To replicate this kind of return, all you’d need to do is buy a low-cost tracker fund, sit back, and relax. There would be no need to continually evaluate fund managers or pick stocks. All these tracker funds do is replicate the holdings of the underlying index.Fund best buysThe UK’s biggest listed companies make up the FTSE 100 index. The FTSE 250, on the other hand, is made up of much smaller mid-cap companies. These firms tend to have better growth prospects. That’s why the index has achieved a much better return than the FTSE 100 since inception.That said, because the index is made up of smaller firms, it does tend to be more volatile. This is bad news for short term traders. But if you’re investing with a long-term outlook, it could be worth accepting this volatility for higher returns.Making a millionTo accumulate £1m in the 25-year time frame (between 40 and current retirement age of 65) you would need to put away £550 a month. That’s assuming an average annual return of 12%, zero savings to begin with, and no tax benefits from using a SIPP.Including tax benefits, it would take monthly deposits of just £440 for 25 years to make a million with the FTSE 250.

2 shares to buy today for my Stocks and Shares ISA In a recent trading update, Rio Tinto announced it would be paying out a record dividend of $3.09 per share in addition to a special dividend of 93 cents per share.The company also said its full-year profits had climbed 22%, as strong demand for iron ore led to an increase in the price of the commodity. If the global economy is able to return to some sort of normality over the next 12 months, I think this demand could grow even faster and boost Rio Tinto’s profits and share price even further.The major risk is that commodity markets such as iron ore can often be cyclical in nature. As Rio Tinto is experiencing significant growth right now based on soaring iron prices, a fall in these prices is certainly possible. Intermediate Capital GroupThe Intermediate Capital Group (LSE:ICP) share price suffered a decline last week, but the shares have performed solidly in recent years. The stock has gained more than 10% over the last 12 months, while that figure is just short of 70% over the last two years. The pandemic has had a significant effect on UK shares. Some stocks have gained over the last 12 months, while many others have seen their value fall.Looking at FTSE 100 shares, for the most part stocks are still trading lower than they were 12 months ago, just as the pandemic was beginning to take hold in the UK.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…There have been signs of a recovery in the last few months, however, with the index gaining 33% since its low of 4,993p in March 2020.I still think there are some UK shares to buy today which I would add to my Stocks and Shares ISA.

This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem April 12, 2016 at 4:57 pm So the Provinces which have been condemning the ECUSA the loudest, and led the charge for our “disciplining” are now shown to be deadbeats. This, with last week’s revelation of Welby’s parentage, proves that God does has a sense of humor. April 14, 2016 at 3:57 pm Very good, very God, Cynthia!!! Tags April 13, 2016 at 9:48 am Excellent. [Episcopal News Service – Lusaka, Zambia] The Anglican Consultative Council was asked April 12 to determine how to handle the fact that 15 of the 38 provinces do not contribute to the communion budget or give very small amounts.For the first time, members of the ACC were given a list of the churches that do not give or give small amounts. Of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, four (Congo, Sudan, Uganda and West Africa) as well as the extra-provincial Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain have not contributed to the Inter-Anglican Budget for more than five years.Another 10 were listed as having last made payments in the years between 2011 and 2014. The largest of those was Nigeria’s $14,200 in 2011 (at 2016 British pounds to U.S. dollar rates). The other nine on that portion of the list are Korea, Pakistan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Bangladesh, Bermuda, Burundi, North India and Southeast Asia.The communion office’s 2016 budget comes in at nearly $3 million, with 63 percent of the revenue budgeted to come from the provinces.Anglican Communion Secretary General Bishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon said the provinces on the list “have not been playing the role of being members of the communion, particularly financially.”He noted that his office has a restricted budget fund for aiding clergy and their families when facing what he called personal emergencies. In 2015, nearly $130,000 was paid out, Idowu-Fearon said. Most who contribute do not benefit from the fund, but the majority of those receiving aid are from provinces on the list he gave to the ACC.“It is something that we have to think seriously about,” he said.The secretary general also said some provinces appear to have taken to heart an admonition contained in a communique issued late 2013 after a meeting of the GAFCON group which asked communion provinces to “reconsider their support for those Anglican structures that are used to undermine biblical faithfulness and contribute instead, or additionally, to the financing” of GAFCON.“We need you to guide us as to what to do in getting our brothers and sisters from these provinces to play their roles, particularly their financial role, in keeping this communion going,” Idowu-Fearon said.Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul Yak told his ACC colleagues that it is not that his church is unwilling to pay. Instead, he said, “we are dealing with how to keep the people together” in the two countries, given what they have faced in recent years.The following day, the Rev. Bol Deng, the province’s clergy member, told the ACC that a conversation with the provincial secretary would result in a contribution to the ACC budget of the equivalent of $4,000.“There is a fundamental policy of respect here,” ACC vice chair Elizabeth Paver said. “We would like everyone to be able to contribute something.”She said the Standing Committee and the finance office is “very mindful that there are parts of our communion where it would be impossible to give.” Letters go out to all provinces asking if they can contribute any amount at all, Paver said.Responding to questions about how it is determined what to ask from each province, Paver said the amount has been based on a province’s reported membership and the Gross Domestic Product of the country or countries in each province.Paver, who is about to end her term on the ACC, said determining the size of the requested contribution has always been an issue. The finance committee has looked at how other similar groups determine the amount asked of their members. She also noted that it has been very hard to get the “same, detailed information from each province.”The goal is “to find a fair and completely open way of asking,” she said. “It will continue to be looked at. If there was a simple solution we would have been able to present it to you today.”Paver said the ACC leadership had never released a list such as the one the members were given “but we really felt that the time had come when we had to face up to this issue.”When the General Convention passed its 2016-2018 budget last July, it restored the Episcopal Church’s contribution to the Anglican Communion Office to the $1.2 million level of two triennia ago. That restoration represented an increase of $500,000 over that which was budgeted for the 2013-2015 triennium, according to the introduction to that budget). However, that 2013-2015 amount was budgeted in error, it was later learned, and the church’s Executive Council modified the budget so that in the end the church gave slightly more than $1 million in those three years. That amount represented 18 percent of the total Anglican Communion Office budget.The ACC is expected to consider a budget resolution on April 18 and members have begun discussing how to handle the non-payment issue.ACC background is here.Ongoing ENS coverage of the ACC is here.The House of Deputies News page is also posting stories about the meeting.Tweeting is happening with #ACCLusaka.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.Editor’s note: This story was updated April 13, 2016 at 1:20 p.m. local time to add information about the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan’s budgetary contribution.

Comments (10) April 12, 2016 at 5:01 pm I am glad a frank discussion about contributing and being a steward of God’s bounty and the welfare to all of the church is beginning to be addressed. Colonialism continues to wreck havoc on brown and black people’s of the world–who make up the majority of the world’s population. That is a sad fact, despite the rich natural resources found in these continents and countries populated by these people (my people). But, you can’t bully your numbers of supposed baptized and followers of Christ to condemn ‘colonial’ churches to question your Third World cultural biases and prejudices and expect us to pay 18-20 percent of the infrastructure of the church. FACT. Even our own corporate-raider background ArchBishop must agree with this especially since he seems to want to keep ‘unity’ at all costs, even our universal baptismal covenants that ALL are God’s people.

The WAYSS Youth Transition Hub, commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and located in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs, provides a home and support network to vulnerable young people on the brink of homelessness.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittSave this picture!© Tatjana PlittOriginating from the ‘Support for Young People That Really Counts’ program and following a model of early intervention known as the ‘Step Forward’ approach, the hub provides facilities and support to equip kids, typically between 16-18, with skills for independent living, preparing them for the next stage in their lives.Save this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!Floor planIn total, the project provides 6 x one-bedroom and 2 x two-bedroom dwellings, with one of the one-bedroom dwellings designed to cater to someone with impaired mobility. The units are supported by an onsite administration building with reception, offices, meeting rooms, and a carer’s room for overnight stays, as well as a separate multipurpose space, complete with rec/lounge facilities and a training kitchen, all arranged around a central, communal garden.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittSave this picture!© Tatjana PlittThis is a unique, exciting, and complex project, but you might not notice anything unusual from the street: and that’s by design. Referencing the scale and form of neighbouring houses and continuing the formal rhythm of the street, the hub nestles into its context in order to avoid the stigma of being ‘different from the rest’ and to engender a sense of home. With all buildings focused around a central open space, the hub supports a sense of protection and community, encouraging residents to engage with one other whilst mediating their relationship with the broader neighbourhood. The administration area has the same domestic scale and materiality as the dwellings and, through its connection to the communal open space, acts as a visual cue that says, ‘we are here, as part of your community, to support you’.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittSave this picture!© Tatjana PlittEach dwelling at WAYSS has its own sense of address: a front garden, a gable roof and a built-in seat covered by a deep eave, transforming the entry into an open verandah; a place to perch outdoors within the protective footprint of one’s own home. Slightly varied planting and landscaping ensures that, as the plants grow, each unit will take on its own distinctive character.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittDwellings recognise the benefits that natural light, good ventilation and various degrees of privacy can have on personal wellbeing. Each home is designed in an L-shape to maximise the amount of northern light beaming in, creating light-filled living spaces and sunny private courtyards for every resident. This layout strategy also maximises the passive solar performance of each home, minimising the need for mechanical heating and cooling. Asymmetrical roofs are angled to maximise the amount of energy their solar panels produce, further reducing the hub’s running costs and environmental impact.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittDwellings come fully furnished. Understanding that most residents won’t bring many personal possessions, it was important the interiors feel welcoming and homely, even with very little personalisation. Timber detailing and colour is used to bring warmth, character and a sense of fun. The same palette of materials and colours is used throughout the hub, even in office and administration spaces as a way to signal ‘this is also my home’ and break down any sense of us-and-them between the residents and support staff.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittWhile the units are suitable for independent living, each with their own kitchen and bathroom, the multipurpose area includes a training kitchen which helps to teach kids the art of home-cooking, a skill they may have missed out on. The rest of this multipurpose room is used as a lounge area and recreation space, opening onto a sunny deck with an outdoor dining table and barbecue. The deck flows into a shared outdoor area where a productive garden teaches kids how to grow their own food and become a little more self-sufficient, skills we’re often taught in the home.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittSave this picture!© Tatjana PlittCommon areas are designed to create a sense of community and give the kids the opportunity to bond with each other while harvesting some leafy greens, enjoying a group BBQ, or sweating it out over a game of basketball. The administration areas are linked to and flow into to these communal spaces, further breaking down the idea of ‘us and them’ and diluting any sense of surveillance. Instead, support staff become a part of the community, creating a mutual relationship of trust and respect; rather than ‘we’re watching you’, the message becomes ‘we’re all watching out for each other’.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittRecognising the often complex backgrounds and emotional needs of the residents, not everyone’s reaction to being a part of a community will be the same. Therefore it was important to give the residents the opportunity to mediate their participation in the community on their own terms. Small, yet important gestures like the covered seating areas under the eaves of each dwelling means you can feel like a part of the communal space without leaving your home. All dwellings have private outdoor space as well, giving residents agency over how and when they engage with their community.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittLandscaping is an integral part of the concept. A mix of native and exotic species has been selected for colour and fragrance and create a rich and varied range of experiences. Each unit has its own patch of lawn, a tree and a garden bed. The two-bedroom dwellings also have a fenced front yard, perfect for residents with young children. Lower-level plants are evergreen to ensure the hub looks lush and vibrant year-round, while trees are mostly deciduous to provide a flush of autumn colour and to increase natural light through bare branches in winter. Given residents typically live at the hub for a short period of around one year, the seasonal plants help to mark the passing of time and provide a changing landscape during their stay.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittFor kids who have either left or been kicked out of home and would otherwise end up living on the streets, this is a place to call home.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittProject gallerySee allShow lessDongyuan Neighborhood Committee Renovation / Atelier VISIONSelected ProjectsKOLON SPORT Hannam Store / studio fragmentSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Melbourne VIC, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today condemned a two-week-old wave of repression against the news media in Syria, including physical attacks, threats, summonses and censorship, and an information ministry announcement on 15 March that Ammar Mussareh, the correspondent of the US Arabic-language TV station Al Hurra, can no longer work in Syria. Reporters Without Borders today condemned a two-week-old wave of repression against the news media in Syria, including physical attacks, threats, summonses and censorship, and an information ministry announcement on 15 March that Ammar Mussareh, the correspondent of the US Arabic-language TV station Al Hurra, can no longer work in Syria.”It is unacceptable that the Syrian authorities continue to use repressive methods and intimidation against journalists,” the press freedom organization said. “Foreign correspondents should be able to work normally in Syria, but instead they are kept under surveillance and their movements are restricted.”Reporters Without Borders accused the government of continuing to use a state of emergency decreed in March 1963 as a pretext for harassing journalists and human rights workers, and said it seemed bent on preventing the emergence of a free and independent press. “It is time Bashar al-Assad set the news media free,” the organization added.The information ministry said Mussareh, who is also a stringer for the US Arabic-language radio station Radio Sawa, could no longer work in Syria because he did not have valid accreditation.But human rights activist and lawyer Anwar Bunni said Mussareh had valid accreditation that was withdrawn because of his coverage of an opposition sit-in staged in Damascus on 10 March to demand an end to the state of emergency and the special courts, and to mark the first anniversary of clashes between Kurds, Arab tribes and Syrian security forces in the town of Kamichli. Al Hurra was the only TV station to film the demonstration, during which the security forces beat several journalists and smashed or confiscated their cameras. Bunni said a German and a Frenchman were among the reporters present, but their identities were not known.Afterwards, the information ministry told the press office, which provides foreign correspondents with equipment and services, to stop working with Mussareh. The measures against Al Hurra coincide with a chill in diplomatic relations between the United States and Syria.Al Hurra is part of the Middle East Television Network (MTN), which is financed by the US congress. It began broadcasting on 14 February 2004 from the state of Virginia, outside Washington. Radio Sawa, whose studios are in Washington, was created by the government in 2001, replacing the Voice of America’s Arabic-language service.Intimidation and censorshipEarlier this week, a municipal official and policemen threatened Assif Ibrahim, a journalist with the official daily newspaper of the ruling Baath party, and subsequently destroyed the door of his home. This occurred after Ibrahim wrote a report about corruption in a Damascus neighbourhood where a building under construction allegedly violates safety standards and will pose a danger to its future tenants.Information minister Mahdi Dakhlallah last week told four newspapers their permission to publish had been withdrawn. They were Al Ousboua Al Iktissadi (The Economic Weekly), a business weekly which had just brought out its first issue, Al Riyadiya Oua Al-Chabab (Sport and Youth), a new magazine for young people and sports fans, and two other newspapers that had not even brought out their first issues. Several reporters have meanwhile been summoned for questioning about their articles since the start of the month. This practice is often used by the authorities to intimidate and silence journalists.Syria was ranked 155th in the third annual Reporters Without Borders classification of countries around the world according to their respect for press freedom, published in October 2004. Bashar al-Assad is on the Reporters Without Borders worldwide list of predators of press freedom.

Organisation Reporters Without Borders welcomes the imminent release of Thomas Dandois and Valentine Bourrat, two French journalists who have been held for the past 11 weeks in Indonesia’s eastern province of Papua on a charge of misusing their tourist visas to do investigative reporting. Follow the news on Indonesia November 19, 2020 Find out more to go further After being sentenced today to two and a half months in prison by a court in Jayapura, Papua’s capital, they are to be released next week. The prosecutor requested a four-month sentence but the judge decided to sentence them to a period similar to what they had already spent in pre-trial detention.Reporters Without Borders nonetheless regrets that were found guilty despite their right under international treaties to gather information as journalists.“It is a big relief to know that Dandois and Bourrat will soon be released,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “Any other outcome would have set a terrible precedent for media freedom in Indonesia. We stress that, according to the principles of international law, they did not commit any crime by courageously undertaking their investigative reporting in Indonesia.”The journalists’ lawyer, Aristo Pangaribuan, told Reporters Without Borders: “On a practical perspective it’s a good news, on monday they will be free. But legally speaking it isn’t. This judgement sets a precedent which might be used by the authorities in the future to justify surveillance or arrests of foreign journalists in the region.”Dandois and Bourrat had received a great deal of international support in recent weeks, including extensive media coverage, many statements by human rights NGOs, appeals by their support committee and a petition for their release with more than 14,000 signatures.Indonesia’s low ranking in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, 132nd out of 180 countries, is due in part to the lack of transparency and restrictions on reporting in Papua.
