The Bitcoin price is near record highs! This is why I’d much rather buy UK shares in my ISA

first_imgThe Bitcoin price is near record highs! This is why I’d much rather buy UK shares in my ISA “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The recent tear-up in the Bitcoin price is showing no signs of relenting. Earlier today, prices of the digital asset soared to its highest since December 2017 around $18,460. Light profit-taking has forced Bitcoin back from those three-year peaks but it remains within striking distance of current record highs north of $19,700.The cryptocurrency has been a star performer in 2020. It’s rocketed 150% since January 1 as investors have increasingly see it as a terrific ‘safe haven’ for these uncertain times. And some analysts reckon Bitcoin prices have much further to run. Analyst Simon Peters of investment platform eToro reckons values could hit $20,000 before Christmas.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…Will Bitcoin sink or soar?Sure, Bitcoin might be ripping it up right now, causing investors to pile in ever-greater numbers. But the currency’s capacity to spring higher on a sixpence is what makes it such a dangerous investment in my opinion. I’d much rather use my cash to buy UK shares today.For one, I’m not convinced that Bitcoin’s rise on flight-to-safety grounds is built on solid foundations. As analyst Shane Oliver of AMP Capital comments:“[Bitcoin’s] huge volatility hardly makes it a safe haven as a store of value. I have far more confidence in the $50 note in my wallet retaining its value over time than Bitcoin, which seems to bounce around like a yo-yo.”Investors in Bitcoin today need to recall how the cryptocurrency crashed after reaching those record peaks three years ago. It slumped around 25% just a week after hitting those all-time highs. And it had more than halved in value within just six weeks.I don’t see any reason why Bitcoin couldn’t sink again following 2020’s stratospheric gains. Questions over its role as a safe haven aren’t the only reason I think a correction could occur. Eternal doubts over the intrinsic value of Bitcoin also threaten to send prices south again.Getting rich with UK sharesAs I say, I won’t be taking a risk with Bitcoin any time soon. It’s impossible to say where crypto prices will be five weeks from now, let alone what level they’ll be at in five years. I’d much rather continue investing in UK shares. And particularly so after the 2020 stock market crash.The average yearly return for long-term UK share investors comes in at at least 8%. This means that someone like me who invests £500 a month can expect to make a whopping £704,275 after 30 years.It’s possible that Bitcoin could be worth 10 times that amount in three decades. Or it could end up being worth zero. I’m not prepared to risk the chance of retiring in luxury on that £704-odd-thousand by gambling on cryptocurrency markets.Besides, investing in UK shares after the 2020 stock market crash offers the chance to beat that 8% average annual return.

Photo: The Bishop’s Ranch[Episcopal News Service] For the second year in a row, a wine country camp and conference center owned by the San Francisco-based Diocese of California has narrowly escaped damage from wildfires, which over the past week got as close as a half-mile from the property.The Bishop’s Ranch sits on 360 acres among the vineyards of Sonoma County, north of San Francisco, in the Diocese of Northern California. Normally it holds retreats, summer camps, conferences and other gatherings, hosting up to 150 people at various buildings around the property, including a historic Spanish-style villa. Because of COVID-19, all on-site programming had been canceled in March, but the ranch had just reopened for socially distant weekend retreats on Aug. 14.That very first weekend, a series of lightning storms knocked out power and sparked wildfires that have been raging across the region since, burning hundreds of thousands of acres and destroying thousands of buildings in the dioceses of Northern California, El Camino Real, San Joaquin and California, killing at least five people.One of the fires, the Walbridge Fire, got close enough to the ranch by Aug. 19 to prompt the evacuation of residential staff. Acting Executive Director Aaron Wright, his wife and their three sons went to stay at a friend’s home, awaiting word on the ranch’s fate.“It seemed like it was at its height – we were most nervous on Saturday because it really seemed to be picking up ground toward the ranch property,” Wright told Episcopal News Service. The flames came within a half-mile of the back of the property and a mile and a half of the buildings, he said.Wildfire smoke rises into the sky, as seen from The Bishop’s Ranch on Aug. 22, 2020. Photo courtesy of The Bishop’s RanchThe ranch “goes from very dense woods to the buildings, and that is all connected to the forests that are burning right now,” Wright said.Although the fire continued to grow rapidly, firefighters worked to keep it from spreading toward the ranch, and as of Aug. 25, the worst of the danger seemed to have passed.“We are optimistic at this point that they’ve held it off,” said Wright, who was able to return to the ranch for half an hour on the 25th to check on it. The property was “remarkably intact” despite lots of ash, he said.The situation in Northern California has improved this week, with higher humidity helping firefighters’ efforts. As of the afternoon of Aug. 26, the large group of fires including the one threatening the ranch was 27% contained.Last October, the ranch was evacuated due to the Kincade Fire, though that didn’t come as close as this one, Wright told ENS.Though the buildings are safe for now, the financial havoc caused by COVID-19 and the fire will be “very hard” to recover from, Wright said. The ranch had sold out all its weekend retreat spots for the next several weekends; now everything is canceled at least through Labor Day.“We’d been closed for five months,” Wright said. “We’re looking at a huge loss, as many people are because of COVID. We had just rehired some staff to reopen.”Another Diocese of California property, St. Dorothy’s Rest, was also evacuated but was not as seriously threatened as the ranch was, according to Wright. None of the Episcopal churches in the sparsely populated area appear to have suffered any damage, although one shared an emotional letter from a parish family whose house was destroyed.The Diocese of Northern California – which covers the areas most heavily affected by the fires – is collecting donations through its disaster relief fund, as is the neighboring Diocese of El Camino Real. The Diocese of California is directing donations to the other two dioceses and collecting bags of essential supplies to distribute.“As fire and smoke impact our every movement, please know that we stand together in prayer, remembering that Jesus the Good Shepherd walks with us always,” Northern California Bishop Megan Traquair wrote to her diocese. “We are a strong and resilient diocese, and we know this path well.”California Bishop Marc Andrus and El Camino Real Bishop Lucinda Ashby offered prayers for the victims of the fires, for those forced to leave their homes and for the firefighters.“Please know that you are very much on my heart as you not only continue to show incredible courage and resilience through the ongoing pandemic but now also face a new round of fear and uncertainty brought on by the outbreak of hundreds of local wildfires,” Andrus wrote to his diocese.“I am thankful for firefighters – professionals, prisoners, and volunteers who work tirelessly and courageously to protect life and land,” Ashby wrote on Facebook. “May our gratitude make us more patient, more loving, more kind.”San Joaquin Bishop David Rice also offered prayers for the farm workers in the area, who are enduring scorching heat and toxic air on top of the already grueling conditions of their work, all to make minimum wage during a pandemic.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Set in a magical setting in the hills of Byron Bay the house has an extraordinary view of the sea and sky, and sits in a private rural and rainforest setting. All seasons of nature are observed firsthand by this house on the hill. The owners are very interested in the philosophy of Indigenous peoples and these philosophies are reflected in the design. Among ideas explored was the idea of the life of a man being a circle from childhood to childhood; another was the idea of connectivity with nature.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe planning for the house is generated using these philosophical ideas, and the journey through the house has a natural movement.

The scale of the house is intimate and engaging.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeSave this picture!West ElevationSave this picture!© Michael NicholsonThe house is planned in a U-shape around a central garden area. This affords a protected area when winds blow from the north-east. A contemplation space, which is at the core of the house, has also become the heart of the house. It is a space to sit and just to be, a source of stillness and quietness, a place to reflect and think. This sense of contemplation seems to infuse the whole house.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeOutlooks out to garden areas occur on both the northern and southern sides, and all round, as the garden intersects with the house. The landscape design is by Jane Irwin Landscape Architects and she has used a palette of materials that relate to the local bushland area.

Cork animal charity in financial difficulties

Diarmuid Kilcullen told The Irish Times the society had taken steps to secure funding and ensure there would be no repeat of the situation.The society moved last September from a valuable city-centre site at Clontarf Street to a newly-designed animals’ home in Mahon after negotiations with property developer Owen O’Callaghan.O’Callaghan Properties designed and built the new centre at a cost of €3 million and then exchanged the premises for the site at Clontarf Street, which is now part of a planned €210 million quayside development.It is understood O’Callaghan Properties also agreed to pay €750,000 to the CSPCA on finalisation of title and has already paid 50 per cent as a goodwill gesture. Payment of the remaining €375,000 is awaiting finalisation of title and other legal matters.The CSPCA is largely dependent on donations and bequests from benefactors. However, it does receive funding from Cork City Council, which pays it to employ a dog warden and enforce the Control of Dogs Act. Cork council had paid the society €163,000 over the past three years.www.cspca.ie Cork animal charity in financial difficulties About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Wedding bells for Limerick couples as Ireland says Yes

first_imgNewsWedding bells for Limerick couples as Ireland says YesBy John Keogh – May 28, 2015 1322 Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Print Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival TAGSfeaturedlimerickmarriage equality referendumYes Equality Limerick Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live “I feel like the whole world is a different place” AS LIMERICK said yes on Saturday, one local woman decided to mark the momentous occasion by popping the question to her girlfriend of six years at the Limerick count centre.Billie (41), who doesn’t use a surname, proposed to partner Kate Stoica (26) just seconds after official tallies confirmed that the marriage equality referendum was passed.Billie told the Limerick Post: “I’ve had the ring for four years. We had talked before about who was going to ask who and we had discussed having a civil partnership, but we decided against it because it’s not the same as marriage.“I was trying to think of a romantic way to propose and I felt that it needed to be something that Kate would never be able to forget. I figured if it was a yes vote then it would be something that nobody would forget.”She chose to propose against the backdrop of the Bruno Mars song ‘Just The Way You Are’ because it’s “a song we sing to each other in the car”.“I was a complete wreck. I just sat and tallied all day. When the final box was tallied my friend put on the music and I pulled Kate aside but I had no idea that there would be all those people there. I thought there would be press but I figured we might just be in the Limerick Post, I never thought it would go as big.“It’s weird looking back at the videos and seeing all those people around us, but at the time all I could see was Kate. It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I was so nervous, I totally forgot the speech I had prepared in my head, but Kate said yes so that’s all that matters,” Billie explained.Billie, who hails from Scotland, says the couple are awaiting the introduction of legislation allowing marriages between same sex couples before they set a date, however she hopes they will wed “as soon as possible”.She continued: “It’s amazing that we’re now thinking about what kind of wedding we’ll have; I’ve never been in a position in my life where I could do that. I have always dreamed that one day I would get married, except for me it was to a woman and I’d be wearing a suit.“I’ve decided I’m going to wear a kilt suit in the family tartan. My sister died recently and my mother died ten years ago, so I’ll be carrying my family with me in my tartan colours.”Billie concluded: “I feel like the whole world is a different place, not just for me but for everyone. Ireland said yes, Limerick said yes, and Kate said yes. For me that was the most important yes of the day.” What they said: Dave Cuddihy, Yes Equality Limerick“At present there is such a feeling of pride, acceptance and gratitude amongst the LGBT community not just in Limerick but across Ireland. The passing of the referendum means so many things to us, for some it means they can finally marry their long term partners and avail of the constitutional protections which were not there for us before, for others it simple means acceptance. The Irish public have let us know that they believe their gay friends and family to be equal in our little country which has taken pride of place on the worldwide stage over the past week.”Cllr Cian Prendiville (AAA)“The campaign and result show that the ideas and conservative grip of the religious Right and the church has been broken and are trailing behind the main body of public opinion. The battle by the LGBTQ community must continue to sweep away all forms of discrimination including the ban on gay men giving blood and the right of schools to sack gay teachers.”Cllr Maurice Quinlivan (SF)“The large ‘Yes’ vote of 24,789, or 64.15 per cent across Limerick City is very welcome. This campaign energised and brought a whole new generation of young people onto the electoral register and into politics and voting for the first time. We need to keep them engaged. This results shows that change is possible. Another notable aspect of the campaign was the huge desire among many of our diaspora for the right to vote. It underlines the case that our emigrants should no longer be denied a voice in our democracy and mechanisms must be found to include them.”Michael Barron, Belong To “We’ve changed forever what it means to grow up LGBT in Ireland. The Irish people, via the ballot box, have today given each and every gay child and young person in Ireland – and across the world – a strong and powerful message that they are loved, they are cared for, and don’t need to change who they are. A new generation has spoken. This is a generation with open, kind hearts, a generosity of spirit and a great capacity to love. They have gone to the polls in their thousands and are responsible for this historic victory for their gay brothers and sisters.”Cllr Lisa Marie Sheehy (SF)“I was proud to see rural areas say yes , extending equal rights to same sex couples. It is clear we have made history. The people of our county and country have sent a clear message to our LGBT people in Ireland and across the world that we stand together as equal citizens where LGBT rights are no longer on the back burner in our society but are equal.”Frances Fitzgerald, Justice Minister I am very conscious that many couples will want to get married as soon as possible. I am working to make that happen. The Marriage Bill, which is currently being drafted, will enable same sex couples to get married in the same way as opposite sex couples. My intention is to seek Government approval for the Marriage Bill 2015 in June with the aim of introducing the Bill into the Oireachtas immediately thereafter so that the legislation can be enacted before the summer recess.

It means we can finally get down to wedding planning properly – and it means I now can’t avoid any conversations about wedding planning, which Shaunie has accused me of over the past year. It’s also fantastic and very humbling to have 1.2 million people endorse your relationship and your right to marry.“We had our venue provisionally booked since last year so we have been planning for it already but this makes it an awful lot easier. We’ll be able to do it all in the one place and there won’t be a mad dash to the venue from the registry office. And of course we’ll now have constitutional protection,” he told the Limerick Post.Both John James and Shaun have been heavily involved in the local LGBT community and the campaign for equal marriage rights for same sex couples; the pair canvassed on behalf of the Yes Equality movement in Limerick and Ballina-Killaloe.John James was also the coordinator of Limerick’s bid to host the 2018 Gay Games, in which Limerick reached the final three potential host cities alongside London and Paris.John James added: “We’ve been out on the doors for the last couple of months canvassing. Our lives had been on hold for the last six months or so really. This referendum was going to decide for us whether or not we were going to be able to stay in Ireland to get married, and now we can and that means an awful lot.“It’s still feeling a bit surreal; we weren’t sure how to feel when it was passed. We were living in trepidation for so long thinking about the possibilities if it didn’t pass. We hadn’t really allowed ourselves to hope that it would pass.”last_img read more
