I’d rather buy these ‘next gen’ UK shares to get richcenter_img This could prove to be a momentous week in the history of Bitcoin. Online payments colossus PayPal could allow customers to trade Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. And they could use them to buy products from the 26m retailers which use its service. It’s seen as a possible game-changer in the widespread use of digital currencies. It’s no surprise Bitcoin prices leapt following the news. It hit levels not seen since summer 2019 at $13,200. It’s given back some of these gains on Thursday but, at $12,800, it remains a whopping 44% more expensive than it was at the start of 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…Chief executive of deVere Group, Nigel Green, for one has claimed the move represents “a major step forward towards the mass adoption of digital currencies.” He believes that the likes of Bitcoin will play a critical role in an increasingly tech-based global economy.“The blistering speed of the digitalisation of economies and every aspect of our lives, including financial lives, shows that there will be a growing demand for digital, global, borderless money,” Green suggests.Question marksI agree that the increasingly digital world presents a wealth of opportunity for investors to tap into. But I’m not convinced Bitcoin is really the top cash-building asset class we need.Huge questions remain over the underlying value of cryptocurrencies. And investment experts like Warren Buffett are vociferous in their belief that the likes of Bitcoin are virtually worthless. Meanwhile, the drawn-out process of getting a Bitcoin-backed exchange-traded fund (ETF) signed off by the US Securities and Exchange Commission remains unresolved. This casts further doubts on the future of digital assets.Finally, I’m put off by the huge price volatility that comes with Bitcoin. During 2020 it’s swung from lows around $4,900 to those recent highs, up more than $7,000. This sort of choppiness can end up costing investors a fortune. And particularly when you consider the high levels of leverage that Bitcoin trading attracts.Looking past BitcoinWhy take a chance with your money with Bitcoin when there’s so many other ways to use your cash? I prefer to buy UK shares in a tax-efficient Stocks and Shares ISA.Unlike the business of buying into crypto assets, investing in companies on stock exchanges has been around for centuries. It’s not without risk, of course. I’ve been burnt by buying shares in Cineworld. But calamities like this are the exception rather than the rule. It’s why studies show that long-term investors in UK shares make an average yearly return of 8-10%.And there’s plenty of UK shares that allow investors to get rich from our digital world. Online retailer ASOS, logistics giant Tritax Big Box REIT, and address verification specialist GB Group are great ways to play the e-commerce theme. I can invest in Iomart to get rich from the rising use of cloud computing too. These are just a few ways you can use your cash without having to endure the huge risk that Bitcoin still entails.

Harvest Delays Expected to Continue

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Nov 3, 2017 Rain-on-againFrom now through the weekend and into the early part of next week, the weather is not all that conducive to harvest activities in Indiana. In the Seed Consultants harvest forecast, Hoosier Ag Today Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says on again off again rains will continue.“We’ve got a significant frontal boundary that’s going to be moving through after several days of hit and miss moisture. That front is going to give us anywhere from a quarter to maybe one inch of rain in and of itself. I also have concern about thunderstorms in there,” Martin added. “I’ve heard some talk about strong to severe weather. I won’t rule that out but I think it is something that is getting talked up a little more than it should be at this point. Either way you slice it, we’ve got big time rains coming as we move from Sunday right on into Monday. The good news is after that we take a break for a couple of days, but unfortunately more rain is coming.”He says accompanying more rain is a round of cooler temperatures.“Colder air comes into the region behind this front for early on in the week. We should see temperatures back down to normal or even slightly below normal levels as you move through the Tuesday-Wednesday time frame. But we’ve got another strong system coming together out of the central plains and moving across the southwest Corn Belt. That moves towards us for later Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. I think we can see another quarter to one or one and a quarter inches of rain across most of the Hoosier state. So, if you’re looking for any kind of sizeable window to get work done, it’s not happening this week coming up.”Weeks ago, we were talking about a long, drawn out harvest. This new Ryan Martin forecast agrees.The harvest weather forecast is sponsored by Seed Consultants and Kokomo Grain, and if you would like it emailed to you, sign up at Home Indiana Agriculture News Harvest Delays Expected to Continue Facebook Twitter SHARE Harvest Delays Expected to Continue Previous articleHouse Tax Reform Proposal Kills Death TaxNext articleMcKinney Finds Optimism and Opportunity on India Trade Mission Andy Eubanklast_img read more

The Molecular Neurology Program directed by Dr. Michael Harrington, Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Program directed by Dr. Brian Ross, and the Magnetoencephalography (MEG) Laboratory will collaborate on this research project.Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Huntington Hospital’s Emergency Medicine Department will participate with HMRI in this very important study that is slated to start in May 2013. Captain Warren Merrifield of Walter Reed will play a key role in the project as a principal investigator. Prior to his career with the US Army, Merrifield was an MEG investigator at HMRI. Dr. Robert Goldweber will serve as investigator on behalf of Huntington Hospital.Definitive diagnosis of mTBI and development of effective treatments for combat-related mTBI are of growing interest to the military. Labeled the “signature injury” of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, many of the mTBIs are the result of exposure to an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). These blast-related injuries usually involve being struck by a blunt object, or injury from the subsequent fall or motor vehicle crash.Since there is little clinical difference between blast- and impact-induced mTBI, the design of the study will focus on impact-related injuries immediately after the event. The study will involve 200 civilian volunteers selected through the Emergency Medicine Department of Huntington Hospital following treatment for mTBI, as well as non-head injuries as a control group.The research study will gather data to understand how the brain functions after a mTBI. Assessments in the study will include anatomical and functional brain-mapping techniques, neurocognitive performance (computer-based tests), balance testing and levels of biomarkers (blood protein levels).The incidence of mTBI in the private sector has gained more attention in recent years. The National Football League, National Hockey League and other sports organizations are in need of better neurocognitive protocols to assess athletes. Scientists with HMRI anticipate that data gathered from this research will benefit not only military medicine, but provide new medical models in sports medicine and other mTBI accidents, including falls among older people.For more information, please visit our website at Top of the News More Cool Stuff 6 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it First Heatwave Expected Next Week Make a comment Community Newslast_img read more

Feds to file new charges against Michael Avenatti

first_imgFor 20 years, I have represented Davids vs. Goliaths and relied on due process and our system of justice. Along the way, I have made many powerful enemies. I am entitled to a FULL presumption of innocence and am confident that justice will be done once ALL of the facts are known.— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) April 11, 2019Avenatti gained prominence last year when he began representing Daniels in a defamation lawsuit against Trump. A federal judge in California later threw out the suit and ordered Daniels to reimburse Trump for legal fees.A court appearance is scheduled for April 25 in New York.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. ABC News(LOS  ANGELES) — Federal prosecutors in California plan to level fresh charges against Michael Avenatti on Thursday, marking yet another legal blow for the controversial celebrity attorney known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels.The U.S. attorney’s office in the Central District of California scheduled a press briefing in conjunction with the IRS to “announce the filing of a 36-count indictment naming Michael Avenatti.”A vocal critic of President Donald Trump whose presence on cable television last year made him a national figure, Avenatti now finds himself buried in legal travails on both coasts.Prosecutors in the Central District targeted Avenatti with wire- and bank-fraud charges last month in a scheme that included allegations he stole funds from a client to pay off his own expenses. In New York, Avenatti faces two counts of extortion for his alleged role in what prosecutors called “an old-fashioned shakedown” of Nike.Charges in the separate cases were announced almost simultaneously and authorities took Avenatti into custody in New York City later that day. He was ordered released on $300,000 bond later that day.After prosecutors announced plans for Thursday’s press conference, Avenatti tweeted that he remains “confident that justice will be done once ALL of the facts are known.”last_img read more

Technology firm encourages frank talk among staff

first_imgMost employees would welcome the chance to point out their colleagues’failings or say what they really think of bosses face-to-face – but few everget the chance. However, a new scheme at technology firm Intentia is doing just that,encouraging the firm’s management team to talk frankly about each others’strengths and weaknesses. The high-tech Swedish firm introduced the programme to help managers learnmore about themselves and develop deeper skills. It now intends to extend theinitiative to all staff. “If people have issues with the way an individual works, then ourcustomers probably do too, so it’s essential we get it out in the open,”explained HR director Debbie McCallion. Ten managers were asked to evaluate each others’ skills, using a systemcalled SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats). The HR teamanalysed the results and compiled a list of each manager’s best and worstskills. The group then talked about each individual in turn, highlighting theirweaknesses face-to-face. At the end of the course, each manager was givenobjectives to try to improve. The company is now planning to extend a similar scheme to all its employees,in the hope that straight talking will improve the way teams work together.
