Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Making a million from Premium Bonds is an exciting, but unrealistic, prospect for the vast majority of people. In fact, with interest rates being low at the present time, the prize rate for Premium Bonds is currently 1.4%. As such, the average return for most people who buy Premium Bonds is a similar level to the current rate of inflation.Therefore, the FTSE 100 could be a better place to invest if you have £20k, or any other amount, currently available and are seeking to turn it into a million. It offers higher return potential – especially at the present time after its volatile start to 2020. And, while it comes with higher risks than Premium Bonds, they can be reduced through diversification and focusing your capital on higher-quality businesses.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…Return prospectsWhile Premium Bonds may struggle to deliver a positive after-inflation annual return, the FTSE 100 has a strong track record of doing so. In fact, it has produced a total annual return of around 9% since its inception 36 years ago.Assuming a similar rate of growth in future could mean that an initial investment of £20k becomes £1m after around 46 years. While this may not sound especially impressive, since many people may not have a 46-year time horizon, it highlights the return potential of the FTSE 100 compared to Premium Bonds. In fact, the same £20k invested in Premium Bonds at its current annual prize rate of 1.4% would be worth just £38k by the end of the same time period.RisksClearly, the FTSE 100 is a far riskier investment prospect than Premium Bonds. While the latter is backed by the government, the former is subject to wild swings in value which can lead to significant paper losses for investors.Those risks, however, can be reduced through buying high-quality businesses while they trade on low valuations. For example, companies that have solid balance sheets and strong cash flow may offer more robust earnings outlooks, while undervalued shares could offer more attractive risk/reward ratios that limit your potential losses.In addition, diversifying across a wide range of shares helps to limit the impact on your portfolio of losses for a small number of holdings. With it being cheaper than ever to buy shares through tax-efficient accounts, such as a Stocks and Shares ISA, diversifying your portfolio has become more cost-effective than ever.Making a millionWhile investing £20k in the FTSE 100 is likely to take a long time to generate a seven-figure portfolio, the chances of it taking place appear to be much higher than an investment in Premium Bonds. As such, while the index currently appears to offer good value for money, now could be a good time to start building your diverse portfolio of shares that offer a potent mix of income and growth potential.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If you prefer to invest in actively-managed funds, as opposed to picking stocks yourself or investing though tracker funds, you have no shortage of options these days. According to the Investment Association, there are currently over 3,000 funds on sale in the UK.Of course, it’s important to do your research when choosing one for your investment portfolio. Picking the right fund could make a huge difference to your wealth over time. With that in mind, here’s a look at the one I’d invest in if I could only buy one fund for 2020.5G 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…Fundsmith EquityIf I had to pick one, I’d go for the Fundsmith Equity fund. This is a large global equity fund that was launched in 2010 and is managed by well-known fund manager Terry Smith. It’s available on investment platforms such as Hargreaves Lansdown, AJ Bell, and Interactive Investor.Focus on qualityWhat I like about Fundsmith is its focus on high-quality companies. Terry Smith – who is very much a long-term investor – has strict criteria when selecting stocks for the portfolio and only invests in companies that are highly profitable, resilient to change, have strong competitive advantages, and are well capitalised. Ultimately, his approach is very similar to that of Warren Buffett. And since the fund’s inception in late 2010, it’s produced fantastic results.Thematic twistI also like the fact that there’s a bit of a thematic focus within the Fundsmith portfolio. For example, the fund has exposure to a number of businesses that should benefit from rising wealth in emerging markets, such as Unilever and Diageo. There are also healthcare companies that should benefit from the world’s ageing population (Johnson & Johnson, Coloplast) and the diabetes epidemic the world is currently facing (Novo Nordisk, Becton Dickinson and Co). Additionally, there are companies that should benefit from urbanisation, and the shift towards digitalisation and electronic payments. Overall, the portfolio looks very attractive from a long-term investment point of view, in my opinion.Top performanceFundsmith’s performance has certainly been impressive since its inception. Indeed, the fund has delivered a return of 18.4% per year since its launch (to 31 January), which is a fantastic return. And it’s been the best performing global equity fund on the Hargreaves Lansdown platform over the last five years, delivering a total return of roughly 140%. Past performance is no guarantee of the future performance, of course, but over the long run, I expect the fund to keep delivering good returns for investors.Risks and feesAs with any investment, there are risks to consider with Fundsmith. Investors should be aware that it’s a concentrated fund, meaning that there is a relatively high level of stock-specific risk. It also has substantial exposure to the US. Additionally, a number of holdings within the fund currently trade at high valuations.Fees also need to be considered. Through Hargreaves Lansdown, its ongoing charge is 0.95% per year, meaning there are other funds that are cheaper. However, it’s worth noting that Fundsmith has fewer hidden costs (i.e. portfolio transaction costs) than many other funds.Overall though, I see considerable appeal in Fundsmith. Given its focus on high-quality businesses and its phenomenal track record, I see it as a core holding for those looking for global growth. Image source: Getty Images.

Enter Your Email Address The stock market crash could be far from over. In April, the UK’s economy contracted by a record 20% as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.Market corrections can be expected fairly regularly. But for many of us, this was the first time we had seen the index plummet as investors.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…In times like these, I like to turn to the advice of someone who has seen multiple market crashes and made much of his wealth from out-of-favour stocks.Be greedyIn the year to date, the FTSE 100 has dropped by almost 17%. In March alone, the index fell by 18%.Like most investors when previously buying shares, the possibility of a future global pandemic never crossed my mind. Then the coronavirus outbreak struck, and countries faced varying degrees of lockdown measures. Out of nowhere, businesses were affected in ways that were unthinkable in the past. Understandably, many people were frightened and started selling off their stocks and shares.When the stock market started to tumble, Warren Buffett’s wise words rang in my ears: “Be fearful when others are greedy, be greedy when others are fearful”.When the market index is crashing, it takes a lot of faith to think that stocks will recover. However, I believe it is worth remembering that since the inception of the FTSE 100 in 1984, it has fallen numerous times. In the years following, it has always recovered. Why should now be any different?Investing for the long termIt is also helpful to remember that investing in stocks and shares is a long-term game. No one can predict how the economy will perform over the next few months or years.If you are investing with a horizon of a couple of decades, short-term fluctuations might be better thought of as an opportunity to buy quality shares at bargain prices.As Warren Buffett said: “Buy a stock the way you would buy a house. Understand and like it such that you’d be content to own it in the absence of any market”.If you are purchasing a house, its future value might only be a side thought for you. I would consider stocks and shares with the same outlook.Hold your nerve like Warren BuffettWhen the market crashes, it is tempting the consider following the crowd and selling your shares. However, by doing this, you are turning any paper loss into a realised loss.Instead, it is worth considering why you bought the stocks in the first place. If the fundamentals of the company have not changed, then I would retain my position.Sometimes it pays to go in a different direction to the masses. I like to remember this Warren Buffett saying: “Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it”.The next stock market crash?At some point, the stock market will probably crash again. Maybe this year, but possibly not. No one knows.For long-term value investors, a market crash might not be a bad thing. After all, the opportunity to buy shares in quality companies at a reduced price does not happen often. When it does, it pays to be ready.

This technology stands the best chance of succeeding when it’s combined with a creative idea to generate these rewarding experiences.”Ezinda Franklin-Houtzager, Head of Digital Marketing at Blue Cross said: Advertisement Tagged with: christmas contactless video Melanie May | 12 December 2019 | News Blue Cross thanks contactless donors with video reward this Christmas  192 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. “We were one of the first charities to recognise the potential of fundraising through contactless back in 2016 when we launched out ‘tap dogs’ scheme. Supporters could pat a dog and donate to the charity via a device fitted into their dog coat, which went down really well. We are delighted to be using contactless again in this exciting project and we hope those who donate at our various sites really connect with Giving Moments via video.” Blue Cross has put contactless giving at the heart of its Christmas campaign, with the addition of video to bring its message to life and ask donors to ‘give moments’ to pets in need.As well as to counter the drop in cash giving, the charity is using contactless technology to help build a more engaging experience for donors.As part of the Giving Moments campaign, the contactless devices are appearing across Blue Cross locations and partner sites, plus at temporary fundraising events including carol singing at London Victoria station. Giving a donation initiates a video reward from a dog or cat as a thank you, hoping to capture the imagination of donors as well as drive engagement around contactless technology.The addition of video on the portable device’s screen also means that the campaign can be coherent wherever or whoever is fundraising.London-based campaign agency Bond and Coyne came up with the campaign’s concept including the contactless fundraising component.The agency developed a visual system that puts ‘giving moments’ in the spotlight through a series of Christmas decorations used as frames to capture moments of interaction between humans and animals.Using countertop contactless donation devices, the campaign asks audiences to donate to give a ‘Christmas dinner moment’. The devices feature footage of pets; firstly looking eagerly at the potential donor, next enjoying a meal after the donation has taken place: a ‘behind-the-scenes’ view of the joyful moment they are giving to a pet. According to Bond and Coyne is the first time video has been paired with this type of device.last_img read more

Mother stabbed friend’s lifeless body 22 times

June 4, 2021

first_imgFacebook No vaccines in Limerick yet First Irish death from Coronavirus TAGSfeatured Print Twitter Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Linkedin Proceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] WOMAN who stood over the “seemingly lifeless body” of her brother’s girlfriend and repeatedly stabbed her in a frenzied attack has been jailed for five years.At Limerick Circuit Court, Judge Carroll Moran said that such was the “veracity of the frenzied attack”, carried out by Charlene Sherlock on her brother’s partner, it was “lucky the accused was not facing a charge of manslaughter or even murder,” he said.Jailing the 23-year-old mother of one from Ennis, Judge Moran said that evidence of the attack captured on CCTV footage had been played at the hearing to which he said “words could not describe”.Charlene Sherlock, the third from a family of 13, believed that her brother’s girlfriend was being unfaithful after he was taken into custody to serve a prison sentence.The court heard that Ms Sherlock phoned 22-year-old Nicole Keane and arranged to meet her in Ennis. A number of brief altercations occurred but the pair went to the sheds at the back of a school playground at Holy Family primary school on Station Road and drank vodka.It was there that Ms Keane remembers receiving two stab wounds to the back before collapsing.However, Ms Sherlock was captured on CCTV leaning over her “persistently and continually inflict stab wound after stab wound to her seemingly lifeless body”.22 stab wounds were inflicted by Ms Sherlock on Nicole Keane and so vicious was the attack captured on CCTV footage the accused appeared to pull Ms Keane’s hair so hard that a “chunk was ripped off” according to Judge Moran.The clump of hair was later found in Ms Sherlock’s pocket.The 23-year-old mother of one, who is separated from her baby, phoned her father to say “the young one is dead”.Sherlock went to a nearby Dunnes Stores and was apprehended stealing a bottle of vodka. She aroused suspicions after security personnel noticed blood on her face. She was arrested and such was her intoxication, a rest period was deemed necessary before Gardai conducted four interviews. During those interviews Ms Sherlock was said to have been helpful and has been in custody since April 13, the date of the offence.Ms Keane, who suffered a collapsed lung and damage to her heart, required life saving emergency surgery the court heard. Cosmetic disfigurement was also suffered by the victim during the attack.Sherlock is the third of 13 children who was said to have a difficult background while growing up.With 45 previous convictions, the case against the mother of one was described as being “appalling” according to Judge Carroll Moran.“Two very young women were involved where one carried out a frenzied attack on the other. The CCTV footage captured the attack which there are no words for”.Judge Carroll Moran jailed the 23-year-old for five years and suspended the final year.A victim impact statement was not given to the court.center_img Previous articleNew legislation to help protect children against sexual abuseNext articleRegeneron to overhaul former Dell site and create 300 Limerick jobs Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Shannondoc operating but only by appointment Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April WhatsApp NewsMother stabbed friend’s lifeless body 22 timesBy Staff Reporter – December 18, 2013 3881 last_img read more

Superbug outbreak at UHL sparks alert

June 4, 2021

first_img53 patients waiting for beds at UHL University Hospital LimerickAn outbreak of a deadly bacteria at University Hospital Limerick has prompted strict visitor restrictions.And the HSE nationally has said it will be contacting around 5,000 patients throughout the country to let them know they may have been exposed to the bug.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Carbapenemase Producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) is an antibiotic-resistant bacteria which is harmless in the gut, but can be fatal in about half of cases when it gets into the bloodstream.The majority of patients who came into contact with people who had CPE during their hospital stay will have nothing to worry about but around one in ten will have picked up the bug.Strict visitor restrictions have been in place at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) since the beginning of August when the outbreak was identified and a regime to try to stop the spread of the bug has been mobilised.A spokesman confirmed that there have been 21 new positive cases detected at UHL since June.“There are currently three CPE-positive inpatients at UHL and all necessary infection prevention and control measures are in place to manage this current outbreak. All cases detected since June relate to patients colonised with and not infected with CPE. “All infection control measures are in place and every effort is being made to manage the situation with CPE-positive patients and CPE contacts being isolated and cohorted as appropriate,” a hospital statement said.  A number of measures have been taken to deal with the current outbreak. These include twice-weekly incident meetings convened for all affected areas, isolation of all positive patients with strict high-level contact precautions, all CPE contacts are screened for a period of 28 days with four negative swabs.  These patients are isolated/cohorted with contact precautions. There is also extensive environmental cleaning and hydrogen peroxide decontamination underway “CPE is recognised as being endemic in the MidWest Region and UL Hospitals Group has developed comprehensive control measures to deal with Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms,” the spokesman added.  UL Hospitals Group is proactive in screening patients for CPE in line with national and international best practice and guidance.
