I think investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA is a better path to making a fortune than Bitcoin

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares There is a buzz around investing in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The tales of fortunes made on the back of rapid price rises in these digital currencies are undoubtedly tempting to an investor looking to get rich. But the volatility that produces those rapid price increases cuts both ways – it is just as easy to lose your shirt investing in Bitcoin.Before cryptocurrencies, the Forex markets were where fortunes allegedly were made. In reality, up to 95% of traders lost money frequently speculating on short-term moves in exchange rates. Of course, an investor could buy and hold Bitcoin forever, to overcome short-termism. However, Bitcoin is still a volatile asset whose value lies in its competitiveness as an alternative medium of exchange.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…Taking stockI think stocks and shares investing beats backing Bitcoin. ISAs can provide a tax-free wrapper around stock investments which is a huge advantage. Diversifying a portfolio and lowering its risk is possible with stock funds, or by picking multiple stocks. The idea behind diversification is to spread the risk across companies that do different things. The value of a stock can be judged by looking at its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio or its dividend yield. Furthermore, the anticipated performance of a company over time can guide the valuation of its stock price.Stocks also have different characteristics that can make them suitable for different types of investors. An investor who has retired and needs income may look at FTSE 100 dividend-paying stocks. A younger investor building their retirement pot may look at growth stocks in rapidly growing companies, perhaps trading at high P/E ratios. Or maybe they prefer to look at value stocks that look cheap based on their P/E ratios, but expect the market to recognise this in the future and raise the price.There is also the option of investing in funds that seek out growth, value, or income stocks on behalf of investors who do not wish to pick stocks for themselves. Furthermore, an investor does not have to limit themselves to one style of investing. Portfolios can be built from growth, value, and income stocks.Regular investingNow might not be considered the best time to invest in the stock market after it crashed. I am going to suggest it is as good a time as any. Right now, stocks are relatively cheap, which means any money invested buys more shares. However, I would caution against trying to time the market. Regularly dripping money into investments when the markets are up or down over a long time horizon has a good track record of building wealth.I think it is tough to make a fortune overnight by investing in a volatile asset like Bitcoin. However, with patience and a Stocks and Shares ISA, regularly investing in an appropriate basket of stocks and shares can build wealth over time. James J.

Provinces were invited to send representatives to the conference and to an AHN provincial representatives’ meeting immediately following.Those who gathered for the provincial representatives’ meeting reflected on the Faith, Health and Healing conference and on their own ministries and experience. We realised that this was an important watershed moment and that there were very important messages to be shared widely in the Communion, hence this communiqué which has been drafted by the group.Key messages:Health and Healing are a Mission imperative.The assets of faith communities represent enormous spiritual and social capital that makes an impact on the health of the people.Supportive family and social relationships are a very important ingredient of mental, physical and spiritual health.Thankfully there is increasing evidence for the value of holistic care; this needs to be widely publicised.The importance of faith and churches in healthcare has not been sufficiently documented—what we take for granted really matters but is not widely understood.Evidence-based documentation of our contributions to health in our communities will help us gain access to partnerships with governmental and non-governmental agencies.Churches need to re-assert their value as healthcare partners with governments. The advocacy of Bishops is vital.The health mission of Anglican churches would benefit from being connected within the Anglican Communion and through networking with other churches.The Faith in Health and Healing conference in Birmingham focused on much of this evidence and shared powerful stories of the difference faith and churches can make. The communication tools which are being set up following the conference will enable all Provinces to access this information and share their own good news. (See below.)Some facts about the Faith in Health and Healing Conference:Almost 200 people took part, and around 60 different sessions were presented. With a strong following among professionals from churches and health services from the UK, participants also came from the United States, Canada, Barbados, Palestine/Israel, Norway, Germany, Ireland, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. A range of Christian traditions was represented and it was a privilege to hear from an innovative Sikh project also.Some facts about the AHN Provincial Representatives’ MeetingAt the two day meeting in the Anglican Communion Office, London, that followed the conference in Birmingham, the following Provinces were represented: the Church of England, the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Church of Ireland, the Church in the Province of the West Indies, the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East, the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, the Church of Ceylon and the Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand & Polynesia. On the final afternoon of the meeting, the group was joined by four Anglican health administrators who, facilitated by the Anglican Alliance, were participating in a Commonwealth Fellowship scheme in the UK. This added representation from Tanzania, Kenya and Pakistan.As well as considering the learning of the Faith in Health and Healing conference and how that might inspire work in our various churches, the group consulted further with Sally Keeble of the Anglican Alliance, Jan Butter, Director for Communications at the Anglican Communion Office (ACO), John Kafwanka, Director for Mission at the ACO, Janette O’Neil, Chief Executive of Us (formerly USPG) and Helen Stawski, Archbishop of Canterbury’s Deputy Secretary for International Development.The future development of the Anglican Health Network was discussed and plans made. The powerful role of web-based resources and social media for facilitating the all-important connections around the Communion was recognised, some existing websites were identified, new ones commissioned and social media links created.See: http://faithinhealth.net/  www.anglicanhealth.org/; www.anglicanhealthnetwork.blogspot.co.uk/Follow @faithhealthnet on TwitterWe are exploring the possibilities of using Facebook and LinkedIn.We warmly invite you to promote these resources and communication tools in your Province and to encourage interested parties in your Province to join the Anglican Health Network.

One such example is the winning of support and goodwill of the local village chiefs who in most cases have even donated land for church building.“Many neighboring villages are now asking for their own churches,” reported Oxbrow. “One of the local Anglican missionaries, Ngozi Nwosu, has a particular ministry amongst families who are trapped in traditional belief systems, one of which involves the killing of albino children who are believed to bring evil into the community.”“By preserving the lives of albino children, Ngozi has been able to introduce families to a God who loves everyone and is more powerful than an evil spirit,” said Oxbrow.Archbishop Ben Kwashi, the local Anglican bishop in Jos; the Rev. John Kafwanka, director of mission for the Anglican Communion; and the Rev. Oliver Ofoegbu, an Anglican missionary from Togo, were among those who took part in the consultation.Kwashi also led a session on “character formation for Christian family life,” a theme which he recently addressed in his diocesan charge.The consultation discussed diverse topics such as Christian discipleship in politics and the media, community action for transformation, encountering Islam, and dealing with witchcraft and polygamy, as people become disciples of Christ.The consultation ended with an urgent call to develop “specific and effective ways to disciple and support young people whom God is calling to a career in politics and in the media.”The Anglican Church of Nigeria Missionary Society and the ecumenical Nigerian Evangelical Missions Association jointly hosted the consultation.Faith2Share draws together most Anglican mission agencies and a wide range of mission agencies from other traditions ranging from Orthodox to Pentecostal to work together on issues of discipleship and mission collaboration.

Farmers Worried About the Future of Health Care

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 17, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmers Worried About the Future of Health Care Facebook Twitter Previous articleCorn and Soybean Condition Falls One PercentNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 18, 2017 Hoosier Ag Today It may not be front and center in agriculture like the farm bill discussion is, but farmers have a lot to worry about as Congress debates the future of health care. Politico’s Morning Ag Report says farmers have been struggling for some time with low commodity prices and a sharp drop in farm income. In turn, that’s led to a push on promoting exports and shoring up the farm safety net. But the concern in rural America about health care has never been higher, even though roughly 90 percent of farmers currently have health insurance. Most farmers get their health insurance through off-farm employment, something they have to have because farming is a dangerous occupation. A new university-led survey shows just how much farmers are concerned about the high cost of health care. Nearly half of them are worried they might have to sell off land or other assets to help pay for the cost of health care. National Farmers Union State Presidents met last week in North Dakota. They’ve started hearing so much about health care from their members that the board has bumped it higher on their list of priorities in Washington.

National Finals Rodeo heads to Globe Life Field this December

first_imgReddIt Mel Morrishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mel-morris/ ReddIt Linkedin Mel Morrishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mel-morris/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter Facebook Facebook Linkedin + posts TCU to host a mental health panel printNFR to Texas from TCU Student Media on Vimeo.Arlington’s Globe Life Field is set to host the 2020 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this December, the first time since 1985 that the event will not be held at Las Vegas’ Thomas & Mack Center.The change in venue was initiated due to COVID-19 restrictions that would prevent any fans from attending in Nevada. Globe Life Field provides an alternative because of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s statewide ordinance allowing 50% fan capacity at sports venues.Under the capacity restrictions, Globe Life Field will be able to accommodate about 20,000 fans. While DFW lacks the casino and nightlife attractions of Las Vegas, fans are still eager to attend.Josie Ferrante, a senior education major and avid rodeo fan, said she was delighted to hear of the venue change. “It’s not going to be the same, it’s not going to have the same type of vibe, but I think it’s going to be great,” she said.Ashley Quintilone, a TCU alumna who works in player relations for the Texas Rangers, said they are eager to host the NFR at Globe Life Field.“This will be the first event that we will have fans in our seating. We are taking every precaution to make sure everything is safe and healthy,” said Quintilone.Texas residents are especially excited about the relocation of the venue due to its proximity. Conner West, a TCU alumna and Fort Worth resident, hasn’t been able to attend the NFR before because of the distance to Las Vegas, she said.Katie Firmin, a Fort Worth resident, said she feels more inclined to go now that the NFR will be hosted in her backyard. Fans are also looking toward the benefits that will be reaped by the increased foot traffic to DFW. Last year, the NFR brought more than $175 million in local revenue to the city of Las Vegas. “I think it’s going to bring a lot of people to DFW, and I’m interested to see how hotels and other businesses can accommodate for that amount of people.
