Funds in the so-called “Junior ISA” will be deposited by parents, but the account will be owned by the child and will be locked until they reach adulthood. The accounts are expected to be available from autumn 2011. Investments can be made in both cash and stocks and all returns will be tax free, but annual contributions will be capped. The government has not yet decided the annual contribution cap, although Treasury sources indicated it would likely be the same as that for an adult individual savings account (ISA).In 2011-12, adult investors will be able to put £10,680 in an ISA, after the limit rose by £480 in line with inflation. Unlike the child trust fund, which will be scrapped in January 2011, the government will not make any contributions to the account. Mark Hoban, financial secretary to the Treasury, said: “The introduction of this new account means that we can still offer people a clear way of saving for their children, while saving the half a billion pounds a year that we currently spend on Child Trust Funds.” center_img Tuesday 26 October 2010 8:32 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Image source: Getty Images. See all posts by Kevin Godbold One strategy for constructing a long-term portfolio of shares involves focusing on the shareholder dividends companies pay. If I collect a large yield in income and plough the proceeds back into my shares, I’ll be compounding my investments.Another benefit of focusing on the shareholder dividend is that big yields often indicate a modest valuation. So, if the annual dividend grows over time, there’s a good chance the share price will also rise and deliver capital growth in my portfolio as well.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…However, the strategy works best if I target sustainable dividends. So, I’ll avoid cyclical businesses and look for firms with strong finances operating in a profitable niche of the market, such as these three.PharmaceuticalsThe recent bout of general stock market weakness has pushed down the share price of pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). It seems the company is out of favour with investors. One reason for that could be a general rotation out of defensive companies and into cyclical stocks that look poised for the next cyclical up-leg.Indeed, although the likes of GlaxoSmithKline do operate cash-producing, defensive businesses, their valuations can move up and down in cycles. And right now, I think the valuation has cycled down.And at the current share price near 1,350p, the dividend yield is just below 6%. Meanwhile, nobody expects much growth in earnings in the near term. But I do reckon the firm can keep up its dividend payments. For me, GlaxoSmithKline would make a decent long-term hold in my portfolio.Power transmissionNational Grid (LSE: NG), has a forward-looking dividend yield of just over 5% for the current trading year to March 2021. The guardian of the nation’s gas and electricity transmission networks has been a steady dividend payer for many years. And it’s clear the firm’s highly regulated monopoly position in the UK’s energy sector endows the business with defensive qualities.The company also has operations in the US. And although National Grid carries a big debt load, the rock-solid cash generation it achieves makes sense of the high level of borrowings. However, the business requires large and continuous amounts of capital investment. And the directors must balance the cash flow returns to the company’s lenders and to its shareholders.I don’t expect the business to ever shoot the lights out with growth. But I do think it’s capable of churning out those generous shareholder dividends for years to come.Food additivesThe food sector has defensive qualities and Tate & Lyle (LSE: TATE) is a big player in it. The company produces ingredients and solutions to the food, beverage and other industries, and it’s a lucrative market. We can see by the firm’s long record of paying generally rising shareholder dividends how well the cash keeps rolling in.The share price has slipped back a bit this autumn and now stands near 612p. At that level, the forward-looking dividend yield for the current trading year to March 2021 is a little below 5%. Meanwhile, the company has already shown its resilience by trading well through the recent coronavirus lockdowns.So, I’d treat a holding in the firm’s shares now as a sleep-at-night investment. And I’d hold with the tenacity of a business owner for at least the next 20 years. Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended GlaxoSmithKline.

first_imgSunday Jan 11, 2009 Butch James and Joe Maddock combine for a great Bath try From the same match where Leicester snuck a late Tom Croft try to steal the win away from Bath, this try is well worth sharing as we believe its up there with the best scored all season.South African flyhalf Butch James had an outstanding game for the visitors as he set up the first try with a barging run, then showed his more creative side to set up a brilliant try for winger Joe Maddock.James collected his own delicate kick into space then exchanged passes with Maddock down the right wing before tossing it back to Maddock who stepped inside perfectly and dived over for a sensational try.When Bath coach Steve signed James there were perhaps doubts over whether a player with such a reputation for brutish rugby would fit into a side that enjoyed such an expansive game.“I had seen Butch play a lot of Super 14 rugby and had a different view on him than others,” said Meehan.“I was very aware he had the capability to play a good short or long passing game. His tactical kicking, which has so much variety, has been the aspect of his play that has surprised people most. Geordan Murphy is one of the best full-backs around and I have a huge admiration for him. Butch kept him second-guessing last Sunday and that shows the good job he is doing.”Try scorer Maddock believes that Bath play in the manner of southern hemisphere sides.“Bath are as close to a Super 14 team in England as you can get with the style we play. There are other teams, like London Irish, who will chuck the ball around a bit, but I don’t think that they will chance their arm as much as we do. That is certainly a trait that a lot of Super 14 rugby teams have: they are willing to run it from anywhere, which we are, and they score some fantastic tries, which we can do.”With the type of form that James is showing currently, he should be a shoe in for the number 10 berth come selection time when the Springboks host the British & Irish Lions. Whether the coach decides to look north or not though, remains to be seen.

first_imgThe following resolution was adopted on Sept. 2, 2015, by the National Association of Letter Carriers Union – Golden Gate Branch 214 – in San Francisco.Whereas, while San Francisco is in critical need of funding for public education, affordable housing, social services and health care, the Sheriff proposes to spend $240 million [up to $465 million including financing; 30 years of debt] of taxpayer dollars to build an unnecessary new 384 bed jail in downtown San Francisco; andWhereas, the reality is that San Francisco already has too much jail space. There are approximately 1,000 empty beds every single day in S.F. county jails. Jail population has been declining steadily, remaining at 62-65 percent of its total jail capacity for almost four years [50 percent capacity of current buildings with the entire CJ#6 sitting empty]. In other words, over 35 percent of the city’s jail system is unused and 85 percent of the S.F. jail population is simply awaiting trial; andWhereas, proponents of the plan say we need their new jail to replace the old one at 850 Bryant St. because the building is seismically unsound. However, there is already an excess of empty jail beds and no need to increase jail capacity. The jail at 850 Bryant can be closed immediately without building a replacement; andWhereas, this controversial jail construction plan is opposed by S.F. District Attorney Gascon, the teachers’ union (United Educators of San Francisco), National Lawyers Guild, Coalition on Homelessness, Community United Against Violence, S.F. Human Services Network, People Organized to Win Employment Rights, S.F. Tenants Union, Critical Resistance and Western Regional Advocacy Project, among many others; andWhereas, San Francisco can expand its prevention, pretrial alternatives and diversion programs and promote bail and sentencing reform — and thereby reduce the jail population for a fraction of the cost of building a new jail and paying huge interest and annual General Fund operating expenses over many years. These alternatives to incarceration have proven to be best for keeping families together, stabilizing communities, and preparing prisoners for a productive life on the outside; andWhereas, 42 California counties are currently choosing the dangerous path of jail construction and expansion instead of community-based alternatives to incarceration. Prison and jail expansion has had a particularly devastating effect on poor and working people of color. San Francisco has an opportunity to act against this destructive trend of unrestrained prison and jail growth.Therefore be it resolved, that Golden Gate Branch 214 of the National Association of Letter Carriers formally opposes the costly and unnecessary San Francisco Jail Replacement Project, and urges others, including the San Francisco Labor Council, to do the same.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Unlike Last Year, No Propane Issues in 2020 If you were looking for propane to dry your grain a year ago, you might have had a hard time finding it. Very high moisture levels in 2019 ran through the available propane in the region and logistical issues kept propane from flowing in. Thankfully, that is not the case this year.Mike Newland is with the Propane Education and Research Council.“What a difference a year makes, right? So, 2019 was a tough year. We planted a corn crop incredibly late in a lot of places. 2020 is a much different year. We got the crop planted. Our per bushel usage for propane for crop drying is a fraction of what it was last year, so we’re using a lot less fuel across the country to dry the crop. And so we’re in a much different place when we’re talking this year than we were last year.”Newland says because of the struggle in 2019, they created a new grain drying calculator tool for 2020 that can be found at propane.com.“We wanted a tool on the website for corn farmers to go and be able to, early in the season, just do some quick calculations and come up with a gallon projection that they’re going to use to dry their corn crop. We did that for no other reason than we wanted to start the conversation sooner in the fall rather than maybe driving down the road with combine to the first corn field and calling your propane guy and saying, ‘Hey, I need a load.’”Again, this tool and others can be found at propane.com.

Carter Stadium this season? Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ printJalen Reagor feels like his outstanding play has been overlooked and that he has something to prove. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor took to Twitter last week to express his feelings about how experts think his talent stacks up with the nation’s best players. ESPN released its list of the top college football players for the 2019 season last week and Reagor landed in the No. 46 spot. “Lol #46…,” was all the receiver out of Waxahachie had to say regarding his ranking. The tweet has since been deleted. His feeling of being unfairly ranked seems to be justified, as he produced one of the best receiving seasons in TCU history last year. Though he played high school football just 38 miles from TCU, being a Horned Frog wasn’t one of Reagor’s top choices for college ball.  The son of former Texas Tech defensive tackle Montae Reagor, who won Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts, Reagor was a standout at Waxahachie High School.  Two-straight 1,000-yard seasons to end his high school career earned him a four-star ranking by 247Sports.com and offers from several schools in the Big 12. Looking to follow in the successful footsteps of his father, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound wideout originally committed to Texas Tech, but de-committed in March 2016 to verbally commit to Oklahoma. Just seven months later, he would change directions again, this time to head to Fort Worth to “stay closer to my family and friends,” he said in an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Reagor totaled 576 receiving yards and eight touchdowns during his freshman year, leading the Horned Frogs in both categories. His first career touchdown reception, a 38-yard Hail Mary from quarterback Kenny Hill to put TCU up for good against SMU, was just a sign of what was to come for the talented freshman.TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor hauls in a 93-yard touchdown pass against Stanford in the 2017 Alamo Bowl.

On top of that, the receiver caught a touchdown pass in the final seven games of the regular season for TCU, good for a school record. He also became the first wide receiver in the history of both TCU and the Big 12 to have 100 yards rushing and 90 yards receiving in the same game, finishing with 121 yards rushing and 91 yards receiving in a 31-24 win over Oklahoma State on Nov. 24.“It’s just all surreal,” Reagor said after the win over the Cowboys. “I know I’m capable of playing like that. It’s just the way that happens. It’s just a blessing.”This record was recently cemented on a plaque in AmonG. Carter Stadium, cementing Reagor as one of the all-time TCU greats.Reagor posted this picture on Twitter, saying “All glory to God!” in response to the plaque. Photo via @TheJalenReagor on Twitter.“Having a plaque and having my name in the history books means the world to me,” Reagor said.  “This has been one of my dreams since I picked up a football. All glory to God!”Reagor’s dominance in his second season did not go unnoticed as he was selected to the All-Big 12 Second Team. The receiver was also voted the MVP for the TCU football team by his teammates for the 2018 season, the first wide receiver to earn the award since Cory Rodgers in 2004. The Texas native has speed that often leaves his defenders in the dust. This dates back to time as a track star at Waxahachie, winning a state title in the 5A Boys long jump at the UIL state meet in the spring of his senior year. His 40-yard dash is clocked at 4.32, which earned him the third spot on Bleacher Report’s list of the 10 fastest college football players of 2019.“I can run all day,” Reagor said in a interview with Sports Day. “There’s a difference between track speed and football speed. But when you mix the two, you know what it’s like.”Along with his breakaway speed, Reagor became known for his ability to win contested balls in his second year, which is uncharacteristic of a wideout at his size. Last season, he caught 15 of 31 possible contested catches.  Perhaps his most impressive of such receptions came in the form of a 34-yard pass from quarterback Grayson Muehlstein in which Reagor seemingly took the ball out of Oklahoma State cornerback A.J.
