Bitcoin rallies past $16,000! I’d stick to FTSE 100 growth stocks to aid early retirement

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The financial markets have been on a rollercoaster over the past couple of weeks. The FTSE 100 has been one of the winners, gaining hundreds of points in the stock market rally. Some FTSE 100 growth stocks have gained over 20% in the past week. Other assets have also risen in value. The Bitcoin price broke through $16,000 for the first time in three years.Although some argued that cryptocurrency has a negative correlation with stocks, the recent moves don’t appear to agree with that. This is just another reason why I’m cautious about investing in Bitcoin. What role exactly does the price have? Isn’t it supposed to rally as an alternative investment (like gold) when investors are worried? If so it shouldn’t be rallying now when good news is hitting the markets. The lack of a fundamental reason to pin on the erratic moves behind Bitcoin doesn’t make it appealing to me. 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…Ignoring Bitcoin for FTSE 100 growth stocksJust because I’m passing on Bitcoin doesn’t mean I’m passing on wanting to make large returns. For example, 15 different FTSE 100 companies have gained 20% or more in value this week alone. This is from a wide range of sectors as well, from finance to aviation. The benefit I find in investing in these kind of growth companies is that I can have a finger on the pulse of what’s driving the moves, and make investment decisions accordingly.For example, take a firm that traditionally wouldn’t be considered as a growth stock. Rolls-Royce is a mature business, but events this year meant it has shrunk considerably. The news about a potentially effective vaccine saw the share price rally over 20% this week. Given the position of RR as of today, there’s large growth potential over the coming few years.You could argue this growth is technically just to get back to the output it was at before the pandemic. This is true, but for a new investor, it can be seen as a FTSE 100 growth stock. As a result, the share price growth in coming years (dependent on the success of the vaccine) could be very high. Enough growth for early retirement?Growth stocks are important, but what’s the goal of accumulating high profits? For many, it’s the desire to retire early. The good news is that FTSE 100 growth stocks could help many of us out considerably in this regard. If we ignore the short-term rally and focus on long-term performance, we could assume a growth rate of around 8%-10% per annum. If I invested £150 a week, I’d have a pot of over £110,000 after a decade of investing (at 9% returns). This sum, over a relatively short space of time, would help to pay down a mortgage, pay off debts, or simply be a fund to live off in the years before the State Pension kicks in.I’d feel much more confident in leaving my money in FTSE 100 growth stocks for the next decade in the pursuit of profits than in Bitcoin. Historical volatility and being able to see the fundamental drivers are the main reasons. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

This house is for two families. One is parents generation, and the other is son’s family.In Korea, when the son gets marriage, he live in a separate house. But in our client’s case, they want to live in a same “house” instead of an apartment housing, the most typical residence type in Korea. Therefore, the son bought the land, the parents built the house for the two families. The house has to be a single house with two houses within. So, we borrow the concept of kangaroo, the Australian animal.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!Second Floor PlanKangaroo carries its baby in the pocket at the tummy. Just like that, the parents’ house contains the son’s house. The parents’ house is made of black brick, and the son’s house is made of wood. Kangaroo house is divided into four parts with the narrow courtyard at the center. The two story height courtyard is working as a divider and a connector at the same time between two houses.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkAlley within the HouseIn order to make the house two independent houses we make the stair case the outdoor like alley space. And the four areas of the second floor has the different level. So people must use three or four steps whenever they enter into the new area. This various floor levels create the various ceiling height as well. The parents lives at the first floor and the son lives at the second floor.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkViewing Control for Relationship DesignOne of our major concern was how to manage the relationship between two generations, especially the relationship between mother in law and daughter in law. In Korea the relationship between mother in law and daughter in law is same as the one between mother in law and son in law in US culture. The daughter in law feels uncomfortable with the mother in law. Especially whenever mother in law comes to the kitchen, the daughter in law must come the kitchen to support her. So we design the people at the second floor can look down the kitchen area through the void whenever they go to the bathroom. However the mother in law at the first floor cannot watch the son’s house part because they are at the higher level. Son can look down the courtyard from the second floor, but he cannot look at the parents’ master bedroom facing the courtyard. The viewing directions in this house was carefully controlled based on the hierarchy of family members. By managing viewing is the key method to design the life style of this family. Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Yamanote / Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesSelected ProjectsArchitecture Week Prague 2015Event Share 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/772850/kangaroo-house-hyunjoon-yoo-architects Clipboard “COPY” Houses “COPY” ArchDaily 2014 Kangaroo House / Hyunjoon Yoo ArchitectsSave this projectSaveKangaroo House / Hyunjoon Yoo Architects Year:  Save this picture!© Youngchae Park+ 23 Share Area:  222 m² Area:  222 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeHyunjoon Yoo ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeongnam-siSouth KoreaPublished on September 02, 2015Cite: “Kangaroo House / Hyunjoon Yoo Architects” 01 Sep 2015.

No TPP Means Daily Lost Dollars for US AG

first_img the-price-of-no-tppThe U.S. beef industry says it is losing a fortune every day that the U.S. Congress fails to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal with 11 Asian-Pacific nations. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Kent Bacus says Congress’s delay in ratifying the lucrative Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal means that other competitors are “eating our lunch” in places like top U.S. beef market, Japan.“Our leading competitors are the Australians and they have roughly a ten percent tariff rate advantage over us into the Japanese market. Just based on that little discrepancy, the fact that they have a ten percent tariff rate advantage, that has cost U.S. producers $400,000 per day.”And every day TPP is not ratified, Bacus argues it gets harder to make up for Australia’s tariff advantage, when and if the U.S. ratifies the deal. TPP would reduce U.S. beef tariffs going into Japan from 38.5 percent to nine percent over 16 years, better than any other market access agreement by any other country into Japan.“But more importantly than that is that immediately upon implementation, we will have the same tariff rates as Australia and japan. That means we can capture more of that market.”Bacus says some officials in Japan are already warning Tokyo will not renegotiate the TPP.“Japan is sending the message that they’re unwilling to do that, so if we’re not going to move forward with TPP they’re going to look to other trading partners, primarily in Europe and elsewhere to do business instead of giving U.S. beef producers the advantage that we need to sell our high quality beef into our leading export market.”Bacus says the U.S. will surrender that advantage unless Congress passes TPP in a post-election lame-duck session.Source: NAFB News No TPP Means Daily Lost Dollars for US AG Previous articleWith Election Day Over, Farm Groups Push for TPPNext articleTime to Start Fall Fertilizer Application Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Nov 9, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News No TPP Means Daily Lost Dollars for US AG SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Somaliland government bans privately-owned radio stations

first_img March 2, 2021 Find out more June 14, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Somaliland government bans privately-owned radio stations to go further Organisation Reporters Without Borders called today on the government of Somaliland (an autonomous region of Somalia) to reverse its 5 June ban on all privately-owned radio stations.The information ministry had announced that “no other voice” could be heard on the air except the government-run Radio Hargeysa and that privately-owned stations would not be allowed because of “potential dangers.” It warned anyone with transmitting equipment to hand it over to the authorities and said those who did not do so would be punished.”This move is a serious obstacle to press freedom and the growth of independent and diverse expression in the region,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Somaliland’s president, Dahir Riyale Kahin. “The government has taken this step because it knows most of the region’s inhabitants get their news from the radio.”The country’s only radio station is the official Radio Hargeysa, but several people and opposition parties have applied for broadcasting frequencies. Several privately-owned newspapers are published and sold in Somaliland’s main towns.Somaliland declared independence from the rest of Somalia in 1991 but yet to be recognised by the outside world. Reporters Without Borders notes that in Puntland, another autonomous Somali region, the authorities last month shut down the main privately-owned radio and TV station.

Although released, Nguyen Dan Que and Nguyen Dinh Huy are not free

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomed the release from prison of Nguyen Dan Que and Nguyen Dinh Huy on 2 February, both now returned to their homes in Ho Chi Minh City. The organisation pointed out that three other dissidents remain behind bars simply for their online criticism of the government. RSF_en Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Follow the news on Vietnam News VietnamAsia – Pacific Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam Cyber-dissident Nguyen Dan Que and journalist Nguyen Dinh Huy, who were released from prison on 2 February, are being kept under constant police surveillance, Reporters Without Borders said today, calling for them to be allowed to fully enjoy their freedom. Both spent more than 15 years in prison.Dinh Huy is being so closely watched that there are even two policeman inside his home in Ho Chi Minh City. All his telephone calls are monitored.Two plain-clothes are constantly watching Dan Que’s home. When he went out a few days after his release, the authorities immediately telephoned his wife to ask why he had gone out and tell her that he should henceforth warn them whenever he went out.———————————-3.02.05Cyberdissident Nguyen Dan Que and journalist Nguyen Dinh Huy releasedReporters Without Borders welcomed the release from prison on 2 February of Dr Nguyen Dan Que and journalist Nguyen Dinh Huy, aged 73. The organisation said it hoped the two would be able to resume a normal life free of police surveillance and harassment. It also pointed out that three other dissidents – Nguyen Vu Binh, Pham Hong Son and Nguyen Khac Toan – were still behind bars simply for having posted articles online critical of the government. “In less than eight months, the Vietnamese authorities have released four of the seven jailed cyberdissidents as well as the last journalist imprisoned. However, at the same time they brutally cracked down on a section of the online press because it was reflecting popular discontent.”It is therefore not yet possible to see these releases as a sign of a softening of the regime towards free expression,” it said.Nguyen Dan Que, held in Prison n°5 in Thanh Hoa Province about 200 kilometres south of Hanoi, arrived back home in Ho Chi Minh City the following day while Dinh Huy returned to the same city accompanied by his family.Dan Que had been arrested at his home on 17 March 2003. A committed free expression campaigner, he had already spent more than 18 years in prison between 1980 and 1998.Shortly before his imprisonment he had released a statement in which he condemned the lack of press freedom in the country. He was sentenced on 29 July 2004, to 30 months in prison by a court in Ho Chi Minh City. He was denied the right to legal representation.Dinh Huy was arrested on 17 November 1993, after asking permission to hold a conference on democracy in Ho Chi Minh City. In April 1995, he was sentenced to 15 years for attempting to “overthrow the people’s government”. He was imprisoned at Ham Tan camp, around 100 kms north-east of Ho Chi Minh City. Cyberdissidents Pham Que Duong and Tran Khue were released respectively on 29 and 30 July 2004. Le Chi Quang was freed from jail on 14 June.Two cyberdissidents and one former journalist remain in prison Help by sharing this information April 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation center_img News News to go further RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang Businessman Nguyen Khac Toan, a former army officer, was arrested on 8 January 2002, in a Hanoi cybercafé. He was accused of emailing information to Vietnamese human rights organisations in exile, seen by the government as “reactionary”. Found guilty of espionage, he was sentenced, on 20 December 2002, to 12 years in prison and three years under house arrest. For several months he has been refused the right to leave his cell, as punishment for making “insolent” remarks.Nguyen Vu Binh, former journalist on an official Vietnamese Communist party publication Tap Chi Cong San (Communist Reviews), was arrested on 25 September 2002. He was chiefly accused of posting articles online of a “reactionary nature”, in particular an essay entitled, “Reflection on the Sino-Vietnamese border accords” in which he criticised a treaty concluded between China and Vietnam in 1999. He was sentenced on 31 December 2003 to seven years in prison and three years house arrest. The sentence was confirmed on appeal on 5 May 2004.Pham Hong Son, a doctor and head of a pharmaceutical firm, was imprisoned on 27 March 2002 for having translated and posted online an article headlined, “What is democracy?”, taken from web pages on the site of the US embassy in Vietnam.Previously, he had written several articles promoting democracy and human rights, posted on Vietnamese discussion forums. In June 2003 a people’s court in Hanoi sentenced him to 13 years in prison for “espionage” and three years house arrest. His sentence was reduced on appeal on 26 August 2003, to five years imprisonment and three years house arrest.He is suffering from a hernia in the groin which could be life-threatening in the absence of an operation. He has not been receiving any treatment and he was transferred in September 2004, to a detention centre far from Hanoi, where his family lives.Over 15 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. More than two hundreds news staffs around the globe are thus sponsoring colleagues by regularly petitioning authorities for their release and by publicising their situations so that their cases will not be forgotten.Currently, Nguyen Dinh Huy is sponsored by La Manche libre, le Club de la presse de Bordeaux, Le Devoir, Charlie Hebdo, Le Matin, RFI, Verbottenswuriren, Maison de la presse de Liège, Fun Radio (Belgique), El País, RTVE, Europa Press, Grupo Arbol News April 22, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts February 9, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Although released, Nguyen Dan Que and Nguyen Dinh Huy are not free VietnamAsia – Pacific last_img read more
