Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Enter Your Email Address Gold has been one of the best investments in 2019. Year-to-date, the gold spot price is up almost 17% and hovering around $1,523 per ounce. In 2020, I’d like to encourage our readers to learn more about the gold market – from what drives the price of the underlying bullion and especially to how they can include gold shares in their portfolios. Let’s take a closer look.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…Gold as an asset classThis precious metal has fascinated humans since the dawn of time. Today, most gold produced is used for jewellery or investing purposes. Globally central banks keep over 30,000 tons of the yellow metal. According to the Bank of England website “our gold vaults hold around 400,000 bars of gold, worth over £200 billion. That makes the Bank of England the second largest keeper of gold in the world (the New York Federal Reserve tops the list).“You may be familiar with arguments about gold being a hedge against inflation and a store of wealth. In general gold has also had a negative correlation to stocks. Many analysts recommend a 5%-10% allocation of a personal investment portfolio to gold as an insurance policy.We cannot know the future with certainty. However, for a good number of people physical gold is an asset for defensive diversification. Gold prices + economic/political developmentsInvestors may remember that in 2010, the spot price for gold was about $1,050. By late 2011, it almost hit $1,900, at which point a multi-year decline began. By 2016, it was below $1,100. In mid-2018, the current rally began around the $1,200 level.There have been several reasons behind this tailwind in gold prices, ranging from worries about the escalating US-China tariff war, volatility in the oil market, talk of a global recession, macroeconomic fears, uncertainty in Europe (partly because of the developments on the Brexit front), and rather choppy global equities.Analysts are also discussing the near-term possibility that US dollar interest rates may go to zero and that pressure may be put on the US Federal Reserve Board (Fed) to introduce negative rates. If US dollar deposits see negative rates, smart money is likely to move not into other currencies, but possibly into commodities, including precious metals such as gold.So if you believe that the next bull cycle in gold is under way and would like to invest in it, then you can buy into gold in several ways.Gold sharesIn recent months, many gold miners have seen their share prices pop as the global gold price has surged. Within the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, companies that mine gold include Chile’s Antofagasta, Mexico-based Fresnillo, Russian mining operation Polymetal, and Centamin, which focuses on the the Arabian-Nubian Shield.If gold remains at its current price or moves higher, miners will likely report better margins and rising free cash flow, potentially boosting their share prices even further. However, income investors should note that most gold stocks are low-dividend payers.There are also investment funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that invest in gold miners. Examples of such funds would be the BlackRock Gold and General or iShares Gold Producers UCITS ETF.Alternatively, you can also consider ETFs that invest in gold itself such as ETFS Physical Gold. The fund is large, well-known, and liquid. With an ongoing charge of 0.39%, it may be suitable for investors looking for asset diversification, especially in the short term.

Autumn Internationals Ireland v Italy Preview

first_imgIreland play Italy in Chicago this weekend – here’s the team news, TV details and top facts Ireland coach Joe Schmidt said on captain Rhys Ruddock: “He is a workaholic on the pitch and prepares incredibly well off it, so he’s an ideal leader in the absence of Rory, Pete and Johnny.”Skipper: Rhys Ruddock will lead out Ireland (Getty Images)Italy coach Conor O’Shea said: “We haven’t fired a shot against Ireland in the two matches we’ve played. And I want this to be the first staging post to us actually firing a shot, and actually make them sit up and notice that we’re on the way.”Any interesting statistics?Of the Ireland starting XV that secured a Six Nations Grand Slam against England in March, only three players remain – Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki and Jacob Stockdale.Italy’s back-line has twice as many caps as Ireland’s, with 130 to 65.Ireland have lost four of 28 Tests against Italy. Three of those defeats came in the Nineties while the fourth and most recent was in Rome in 2013.Italy have won only two Tests since the start of 2017, beating Fiji last November and Japan in June.Ireland have scored more than 50 points in their last three Tests against Italy, winning 58-15 in 2016, 63-10 in 2017 and 56-19 in 2018.What time does it kick off and is it on TV?Saturday 3 November, Ireland v Italy, Soldier FieldThe Test gets underway at 3pm in Chicago, which is 8pm in the UK and Ireland.It is being broadcast live on Premier Sports in the UK and eir Sports in Ireland.The setting: Soldier Field in Chicago (Getty Images)Who’s the referee?Welshman Nigel Owens has crossed the Atlantic to take charge of this fixture and has two Frenchmen as his assistants – Romain Poite and Alexandre Ruiz.What are the line-ups?Ireland: Jordan Larmour; Andrew Conway, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki, Jacob Stockdale; Joey Carbery, Luke McGrath; Jack McGrath, Niall Scannell, Andrew Porter, Tadhg Beirne, Quinn Roux, Rhys Ruddock (captain), Josh van der Flier, Jack Conan.Replacements: Sean Cronin, Dave Kilcoyne, Finlay Bealham, Devin Toner, Jordi Murphy, John Cooney, Ross Byrne, Will Addison.Italy: Luca Sperandio; Mattia Bellini, Michele Campagnaro (captain); Luca Morisi, Giulio Bisegni; Carlo Canna, Tito Tebaldi; Nicola Quaglio, Luca Bigi, Tiziano Pasquali, Marco Fuser, George Biagi, Johan Meyer, Abraham Steyn, Renato Giammarioli. Autumn Internationals Ireland v Italy PreviewTwo years ago Ireland travelled to Chicago and secured arguably their most famous victory – beating New Zealand for the first time. This weekend they return to Soldier Field to face familiar Six Nations foes Italy.Some of the players may not be so familiar to the American audience, however, with both sides opting for relatively inexperienced sides.Centre Michele Campagnaro, with 34 Test appearances, is the most-capped player in the Italy side while Jack McGrath, with a half-century, has that honour for the Ireland starting XV. The rest of the Irish pack have 63 caps between them!Leading man: Michele Campagnaro breaks against Japan in June (Getty Images)Still, Ireland will expect to win this Test comfortably and have the firepower in their back-line to expose weaknesses in the Italian defence.What’s the big team news?As mentioned above, neither nation has picked their strongest XV. With the Test outside the official international window, Conor O’Shea is unable to select any players based outside of Italy, although Campagnaro has been released from his Exeter contract and will captain his country. Full-back Matteo Minozzi – their most exciting player last season – is also injured.Ireland left many of their key players at home, the likes of Johnny Sexton and Rory Best not travelling to America, as they look ahead to bigger Tests against Argentina and, significantly, New Zealand.Related: Are their too many Tests?Italy are giving Johan Meyer a debut in the back row while Ross Byrne and Will Addison are in line to win their first Ireland caps from the bench with Jimmy Tuivaiti in the same position for the Azzurri.Debutant: Zebre flanker Johan Meyer will play his first Test (Getty Images)Tadhg Beirne and Jordan Larmour make their first starts for Ireland, with the former sure to be targeting turnovers and the latter likely to excite the crowd with his counter-attacks.Related: The remarkable story of Tadhg BeirneJoey Carbery returns to the ground where he made his Test debut, against New Zealand in 2016, and gets a valuable opportunity to start in the No 10 jersey, alongside former Leinster team-mate Luke McGrath.Ireland’s reliance on Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray at half-back has raised concerns and this is a chance to test the strength of their depth in those positions.What have the coaches said? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Big opportunity: Joey Carbery is getting a start at No 10 for Ireland (Getty Images) Replacements: Oliviero Fabiani, Cherif Traore, Giosue Zilocchi, Marco Lazzaroni, Federico Ruzza, Jimmy Tuivaiti, Guglielmo Palazzani, Ian McKinley.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

France withstand Ireland comeback to win first of two match series

first_imgWednesday Aug 17, 2011 France withstand Ireland comeback to win first of two match series France are upbeat following their 19-12 win over Ireland on Saturday in what was another Rugby World Cup warm-up match. Ireland fielded a stronger side than the one that played against Scotland a week before, but were without Brian O’Driscoll.France looked in control of the game with a 13-3 halftime lead, but Ireland came back with a few penalties later in the game. Vincent Clerc scored his eighth try against Ireland, moving him into third place on France’s all time tryscorers list, with 25 in total.Coach Mark Lievremont said that they still have plenty of room to improve ahead of the world cup. “We never gave up hope of making progress! Of course there was hope because we have a lot of quality players. This first match, given that it is always difficult to begin a new season and to find your rhythm, has in any case given us that hope.“Even if these matches have nothing at stake, they are still test matches. When one sees the intensity, the hard tackling on both sides, they are anything but friendly matches. Everyone is hungry to mark his territory, to raise their morale, to reassure themselves, and to make progress. In terms of all those things it was a good match,” he added.Ireland meanwhile are boosted by the return of Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon Darcy for the next match between the two sides, in Dublin this coming weekend. O’Driscoll has recovered from a neck injury, while Darcy returns after ankle surgery. Stephen Ferris, who had a lengthy lay-off following knee surgery, will play off the bench.“Although I haven’t been able to do a huge amount of contact during this pre-season, I’ve put myself in a position to make sure I’m doing everything up to that contact point,” said O’Driscoll.“I’ve been working on things like footwork and being in the right place at ruck time. I’d like to be up to speed after three games, but I will feel a lot better after playing this weekend.” How did you rate the performances of the two sides respectively?

Accountants urged to give good tax-effective giving advice

first_imgThe Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (‘ICAEW’) has joined forces with The Giving Campaign to urge chartered accountants to advise their clients on tax-effective ways of giving to charity.A free report has been produced by The Giving Campaign to help raise awareness amongst professional advisers of the tax-effective giving methods and to enable them to provide appropriate information to clients. ‘Making Gifts Go Further’ is a comprehensive guide to tax-effective giving,providing explanations of Gift Aid, Payroll Giving, Share Giving, Charitable Trusts and Legacies. Simon Williams, Campaign Manager, The Giving Campaign, said: “The Giving Campaign is working to encourage all professional advisers to give advice to clients about the tax implications of their charitable donations. We see no reason why advice on tax-effective giving should not become a regular component of the financial planning process. With so many people supporting charity on a regular basis, it makes sense for advisers to recognise giving as a mainstream activity and prompt clients about their charitable intentions.” Advertisement Accountants urged to give good tax-effective giving advice Howard Lake | 30 October 2003 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  31 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img David Illingworth, President of the ICAEW, commented: “The accountancy profession is in a position to make a real difference – by promoting tax-effective giving to clients we can help to increase the income to charities, while educating clients about the tax relief they are entitled to. I would urge all our members to discuss with clients the tax implications of their charitable gifts.”The Giving Campaign recommends that regular client ‘fact-find’ sheets include a simple question on charitable giving, encouraging a more holistic approach to the financial planning needs of clients. By prompting clients to consider charity, accountants can extend discussions to build a deeper understanding and strengthen relationships with those clients.‘Making Gifts Go Further’ is available at no charge from The Giving Campaign.

Dec. 9 in Philly: Stop hep C, fight for Mumia!

first_imgMumia Abu-Jamal, before and after being sickened by hep C.Philadelphia – A street rally and indoor panel discussions here on Dec. 9 will focus attention on a major health care crisis, made worse by polluted and even toxic water in state prisons. Political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal’s supporters are raising the issue of untreated hepatitis C, which affects 7,000 prisoners in Pennsylvania.Thirty-five years after being unjustly incarcerated and sentenced to death row and later having his sentence converted to life in prison without parole, Abu-Jamal, who suffers from untreated hep C, is once again threatened with a state imposed “death sentence.”The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections has refused to provide lifesaving drugs that could cure him and the other prisoners.The rally starts at 3 p.m. at the Frank Rizzo statue at 15th Street and JFK Boulevard, chosen to express solidarity with the #FrankRizzoDown campaign. The REAL Justice Coalition started the campaign to have this statue of notoriously racist former mayor and top cop Rizzo taken down.An indoor rally follows at 6 p.m. at the Arch Street United Methodist Church. Speakers will discuss the health care crisis impacting prisoners and communities alike. Lawyers will also give updates on Abu-Jamal’s legal appeals.Pam Africa, minister of confrontation for the MOVE organization, told Workers World, “We got Mumia off death row. Now we are demanding an immediate hep C cure for Mumia and other Pennsylvania hep C infected prisoners. Mumia and many others are very sick and will die if the state keeps refusing to treat them.”DOC’s murderous ‘protocol’In December 2015, during a court hearing on Abu-Jamal’s behalf before Federal Judge Robert D. Mariani, the Pennsylvania DOC accidently let slip that the state’s “protocol” withholds hep C treatment until a prisoner suffers life-threatening severe sclerosis of the liver. Only 50 prisoners have received treatment.While denying Abu-Jamal’s lawsuit, Mariani declared that the state’s protocol was unconstitutional. Lawyers for Abu-Jamal and other prisoners have charged that even delaying treatment is “cruel and unusual punishment.”New antiviral medications Harvoni and Sovaldi with 95 percent cure rates for hep C have been available since 2013. However, the pharmaceutical industry charges around $94,000 for a 12-week course, putting it out of reach for millions of people, including prisoners if the state won’t pay.“There are 3.2 million people in the United States living with Hepatitis C. This is unacceptable when there is a cure for the illness,” said Prison Health News’ Teresa Sullivan, who will be speaking on Dec. 9.The latest guidelines from the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease and the Center for Disease Control recommend that all chronic hep C patients be given the antiviral drugs without regard to severity of symptoms. Despite these guidelines, less than 1 percent of U.S. prisoners are receiving treatment for hep C.City Council ResolutionAt SCI Mahanoy and SCI Frackville water is so toxic that prisoners cannot drink it or bathe in it. This crisis and similar unresolved water problems at other prisons prompted the Philadelphia City Council to call on Gov. Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania state Legislature to “ensure that individuals incarcerated and working in state prisons have access to clean water and proper health services.”Dec. 9 demonstrators will march to Wolf’s Philadelphia office, read the City Council resolution and deliver thousands of petitions demanding hep C treatment for Abu-Jamal and other prisoners.‘Let’s build movements’The Dec. 9 program will also give updates on a new lawsuit, which could reopen all of the decisions made against Abu-Jamal since 1998.The program will conclude with a discussion on the tasks ahead to win Mumia’s freedom. It also will respond to Abu-Jamal’s call to build a united front to confront the incoming national racist billionaire administration.“As the Trump presidency takes shape … let us build movements. Let’s lift our hearts. Let us remake our history with the brick and mortar of struggle,” Abu-Jamal said on Prison Radio on Nov. 21.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

While we have honed our craft with our incredible Alienware products, we recognized that there are gamers seeking a competitive advantage at a more accessible price, so we introduced our new Inspiron Gaming notebook line-up in January.That brings us to exciting news from Computex 2017 – we’re adding our first desktop in the Inspiron Gaming line-up, the Inspiron Gaming Desktop with Windows 10, starting at $599.Following the success of the Inspiron 15 Gaming laptop, launched at CES 2017 and already a favorite among reviewers, the new Inspiron Gaming Desktop sports the latest AMD multicore Ryzen processors. They feature SenseMI which dynamically optimizes power consumption, task routing and clock speeds to deliver exceptional responsiveness and performance whether you are gaming, streaming or in VR.“The addition of the Inspiron Gaming Laptop makes sense after the success of its laptop counterpart. Not everyone wants or needs a portable gaming machine, so providing a desktop option to those customers could encourage them to invest in a casual gaming device,” said Valentina Palladino in Ars Technica.“’Affordable gaming desktop’ isn’t a phrase that inspires much confidence, but Dell hasn’t cut many corners with the Inspiron Gaming Desktop,” noted Kyle Wiggers in Digital Trends.This new desktop is also built so you can expand, upgrade and update with ease.
