It ended 31 December trading at $7,177, having doubled over the course of 2019. Its momentum has spilled over into 2020, and it trades at $8,652 at time of writing, a rise of just over 20% year to date.Nobody can agree why. Some blame rising tensions between the US and Iran, as many investors see the crypto-currency as a safe haven. Confidence may also be growing as new Bitcoin funds and futures trading platforms launch. The rewards for mining Bitcoin will halve in May, and the reduced incentive could tighten supply.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…As ever, nobody knows for sure. What I do know is that if I had £20k to invest today, I wouldn’t put a penny of it into Bitcoin. The virtual currency is simply too uncertain. It is volatile and moves randomly. It could go anywhere from here. The same goes for other altcoins such as Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin.Time to get realTo me, a better way to invest the money would be to return to the real world, and invest in stocks and shares instead. As Warren Buffett, the most famous and successful investor of all time, once said: “Never invest in a business you cannot understand.”I don’t really understand Bitcoin. I don’t see the point, what practical uses it has, or what factors are likely to determine its future movements. For me, that makes investing in Bitcoin pure speculation.I prefer to buy stocks, because they are hooked into the real-world performance of the global economy. By investing in the stocks of companies, you are buying businesses that actually make and sell real products, to real people.Those products can be a vast range of things – oil, pharmaceuticals, mobile phone contracts, clothes, cars, houses, you name it. They are the lifeblood of the global economy, and underpin our daily lives, and the lives we aspire to lead.Take your returns tax-freeI would invest inside a Stocks and Shares ISA, because then you can take all of your capital growth and dividend income free of tax, for life.The rewards can be huge. I have just written about one stock that turned £10k into £127,500 in just five years. If you prefer to spread your risk by investing in collective funds, you can also enjoy outsize returns. For example, this tech investment trust is up 550% in 10 years.So I’d forget Bitcoin. Instead, take time to research shares with high quality, underlying real-world businesses, and develop a target list of companies to consider buying. Next time the stock market dips, look at your watch list, and buy one of them.I would use as much of this year’s £20k ISA allowance as I could before it expires on 5 April, then start on next year’s. Over time, you have a far better chance of building a £1m portfolio than by gambling on Bitcoin. Because that’s what it is, a gamble.

first_img By Andy Eubank – Sep 19, 2018 Kip Tom Nomination to go Before Full Senate Home Indiana Agriculture News Kip Tom Nomination to go Before Full Senate SHARE Previous articleCertified Livestock Producers Recently Honored by ISDANext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for September 20, 2018 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Tom-Nomination-Moves-ForwardThe pathway to ambassadorship for an Indiana farmer moved another step forward this week. In a quick and unanimous vote, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has advanced the nomination of Kip Tom to the full Senate. Tom has been pegged by President Trump to be Ambassador and U.S. Representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture, based in Rome.“My goal in serving as Ambassador will be to improve our missions’ outcomes to serve the interests of the American people,” Tom said last month during his nomination hearing. “If you confirm me, I will bring all my knowledge, work ethic and skills to bear to ensure that this becomes a reality. I will do it in ways that I hope brings honor to our country, our values, and our national interests.”Tom has spent a lifetime on the farm, but has also travelled extensively, giving him a window into the world’s needs and challenges.“I’ve been privileged to visit humanitarian response efforts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kenya, Tanzania, where food security continues to be a challenge, in some cases in the midst of protracted conflict. Most of these people are farmers and I witnessed the challenges they face in growing enough food to feed their own children and family. As a farmer and as a father, to see these people struggle in this way is heartbreaking. While the world will always see crisis, I know we can do better to lift people out of poverty.”Tom added, “I cannot imagine a better honor than to serve in a leadership capacity and be a small part in advancing U.S. global food security efforts to create a more stable, food-secure world.”Kip Tom is from Leesburg, Indiana in Kosciusko County and both Indiana Senators Todd Young and Joe Donnelly have supported the Tom nomination.“Kip Tom is uniquely qualified to serve in this position that is so important to international food security, and I am pleased that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee agreed and supported his nomination unanimously,” Senator Young said. “I look forward to doing all I can to ensure the full Senate confirms him without delay.”Hoosiers’ Democrat Senator has been supportive throughout the process as well.“I am pleased the Foreign Relations Committee unanimously supported Kip Tom’s nomination, and I look forward to the full Senate vote,” Senator Donnelly. “Kip exemplifies the best of Hoosier values and I expect he will do an outstanding job as the first Hoosier representing the United States at the UN.” SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The move is thought to be linked with his remarks on the US-based Radio Free Asia about the recent discovery of three white elephants in western Burma. The military regime said they were a very good sign of the country’s future prosperity, but Than Tun said there was no connection between them and national development. Burma is in deep economic crisis.The magazine Irrawaddy, published in Thailand, said the move could be due to articles by the historian in the monthly Klaya about how Burma was governed in the 18th century. Censors may have spotted references to how the country was currently being run by the army, it said.————————————-Military junta bans reporting on banking crisis03.18.2003A month-old news blackout imposed by the military junta on a crisis in Burma’s banking system is flagrant violation of the right of the Burmese people to be freely informed, Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) and the Burma Media Association (BMA) said today. Newspaper editors have been threatened with reprisals if they violate the ban.”The Burmese government, one of the few in the world to impose prior censorship on privately-owned publications, has yet again shown its inability to accept the free flow of economic news,” the two organisations said, reiterating their call for an immediate end to news censorship.The Literary Works Scrutinising Committee (LWSC), the interior ministry offshoot responsible for censorship, summoned the editors of Burma’s main privately-owned newspapers to a meeting on 19 February at which they were threatened with reprisals if they published any reports about the serious banking crisis. This news blackout would prevent the crisis from being exacerbated and put a stop to rumours, officials said.Journalists based in Rangoon told Reporters Without Borders and the BMA in the past few days that it was still impossible for them to report on the banking crisis. “I wrote three stories on the subject and they were all rejected. It’s very frustrating,” one said. No report has appeared on the crisis, not even in the privately-owned English-language Myanmar Times.The banking crisis was set off by the government’s decision to close a dozen savings and loan institutions that were offering better interest rates than the banks. On 20 February, the central bank limited transfers and cash withdrawals from the country’s 20 banks. Hundreds of Burmese line up outside banks every day, especially the Asia Wealth Bank, in an attempt to make cash withdrawals on their savings.A serious financial crisis in 1988 set off the first demonstrations that led to the emergence of the pro-democracy movement led by Aung San Suu Kyi.Burmese language foreign radio stations meanwhile reported that the authorities had banned the publication of any reports about the death on February 17 of 14 students in a bus crash on the road from Syriam to Rangoon.

In a first-of-its-kind step, the state has filed a suit against its city, Huntington Beach, for “willfully refusing to comply with state housing law, even after extensive attempts to offer partnership and support from California Department of Housing and Community Development.”Approving this action, Gov. Gavin Newsom said that the Attorney General had filed the suit against the City of Huntington Beach on Friday. “The state doesn’t take this action lightly,” Newsom said. “The huge housing costs and sky-high rents are eroding the quality of life for families across the state. California’s housing crisis is an existential threat to our state’s future and demands an urgent and comprehensive response.”The problem with the City of Huntington Beach began in 2016 when the city’s residents disapproved a proposal to amend the housing plan to add more affordable housing. Since then the city has fallen short of its required quota for affordable housing by 400 units.California cities and counties are required by law to draft and adopt a housing plan that meets the needs of the broader region and its economy. Under this law, the city’s housing plan must accommodate a fair share of the regional housing needs and provide zoning that encourages the development of housing that is affordable to the city’s residents across all income levels, including affordable housing and middle-income housing.Though Huntington Beach had complied with this law in 2013, the Governor’s office said that the city had amended their housing plan by 2015 and significantly reduced the number of new housing units being built. It had also rejected a proposal by the Department of Housing and Community Development to build additional units.“Cities and counties are important partners in addressing this housing crisis, and many cities are making herculean efforts to meet this crisis head-on,” Newsom said. “But some cities are refusing to do their part to address this crisis and willfully stand in violation of California law. Those cities will be held to account.”Simply Not Enough Housing?The steps being taken by the state government may just be what California needs to tackle its affordable housing crisis.In his first budget, after being elected in 2018, Gov. Newsom allocated $500 million for incentives for cities that allow for new housing production and $250 million to provide technical assistance for cities to responsibly ramp up zoning and permitting processes. The Governor’s budget also includes another $1 billion in other funding for housing construction.According to a commentary in the Voice of San Diego by Brendan Dentino, co-Chair of the YIMBY Democrats of San Diego County Policy Committee and a housing policy consultant, and Maya Rosas, Founding President of the YIMBY Democrats of San Diego County and an urban planner, advocates are building more homes in more neighborhoods to combat the housing affordability crisis in the Golden State. They said that in the last few years, elected officials have also begun to take action to mitigate this crisis.  However, despite the “positive legislative and electoral developments,” Dentino and Rosas said that merely to satisfy the current household growth in California, the state needed to build 1.8 million dwelling units.A recent article in Forbes by Ingo Winzer, President, Local Market Monitor, revealed that while some markets in California had seen a more stable housing growth, certain California markets, especially those like San Francisco, Anaheim, Riverside-San Bernardino, Oakland, San Jose, and Los Angeles had seen home prices that were 25 percent or more above the income price (a calculated price closely tied to local income).  “The reason these markets are so over-priced, of course, is that the local economies have created demand for housing much faster than builders can produce new supply,” Winzer wrote, while cautioning investors that while they could still find opportunity in these markets, they needed to carefully check for the risks.last_img read more

first_imgBeaudette Family(LOS ANGELES) — A scientist mysteriously killed while camping with his two young daughters died from being shot in the head, according to the coroner’s office.Tristan Beaudette, 35, was gunned down at about 4:45 a.m. Friday at Malibu Creek State Park in Southern California, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office and Department Medical Examiner said. No one else was injured, the sheriff’s office said.The coroner’s office didn’t release additional information.Beaudette was with his 2- and 4-year-old daughters when he was shot, officials said. His wife wasn’t on the camping trip because she was studying for an exam, according to ABC station KABC-TV.Now, his family is “heartbroken.”“The grief and trauma this loss has caused our close-knit family is indescribable,” Beaudette’s family said in a statement.“Married to his high-school sweetheart, Tristan was a supportive and generous husband, a full partner in every sense of the word,” the family said. “His selfless devotion to his children came naturally, and Tristan found true joy in all aspects of being a father.”“Tristan was universally admired by his friends and family,” the statement said. “A scientist who loved cooking and microbrews, Tristan was happiest out in nature, and spent every chance he could hiking, biking, snowboarding, and camping with his family.”But the killing remains a mystery as no arrests have been made, the sheriff’s office said.At least five other shootings were reported in and around the park in the last several years, leaving at least one person injured, according to The Los Angeles Times.The sheriff’s department said it hasn’t found any direct links with previous shootings and Beaudette’s killing but that it is reviewing some of the earlier incidents, according to the Times.“California State Parks has turned over to the sheriff’s department all reports from 2016 to present, regarding the illegal discharge of weapons at Malibu Creek State Park,” a parks spokesperson said in a statement. “Due to the ongoing investigation, this is all of the information that California State Parks can provide at the moment.”The spokesperson added, “Our hearts go out to the victim and his family during this difficult time. The safety of park visitors and our employees is a top priority. California State Parks is working closely with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives as they investigate.”Anyone with information about Beaudette’s killing is asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
