Image source: Getty Images The financial perils of reaching retirement are climbing at an alarming rate.The number of Britons living in pensioner poverty has rocketed in recent decades as benefit rises have failed to keep up with the pace at which social care costs have increased. No wonder three-quarters of those reaching retirement age are worried about hitting hard times when they leave work.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…Insolvency boomA report released today by Rest Less illustrates the financial horrors that are facing many UK pensioners. It shows that insolvencies among women aged 65 years and over have jumped 88% in the 10 years to 2018, to 2,082. And for men in the same age group the number had climbed to 2,589 by 2018. This is up 29% in the space of a decade.Rest Less says that “the wide gulf” in pension savings between the sexes, caused by “40 years of a historical gender pay gap” is behind the insolvency rates among women over 65 worsening more than other age groups. It says women are also more likely to take time out in their 50s and 60s to look after family members, hitting their financial health further.Rest Less adds that deteriorating job prospects are impacting both groups’ financial health too, saying “the over 55s are more likely to be made redundant” and that they are more likely to “face age discrimination in the recruitment process”.Tough timesThings are becoming increasingly tough for older citizens and are likely to get more difficult because of the rapidly-ageing population. There have even been suggestions that the government should axe the ‘triple lock’ pension increase guarantee and other pensioner benefits.It’s quite clear that people cannot rely on the government to fully look after them post-retirement. But it’s not all grim. With the right investment strategy, it’s possible to make the sort of money that will help you live a comfortable lifestyle.Protect yourself!Share markets, for instance, might be extremely volatile right now. But by taking a long-term approach to investing, it’s possible to make a fortune with equity investing. People all over the world have been making big money from share markets for decades now. With returns of up to 10% per annum, as studies show, it’s perhaps no surprise.Let’s say that you’re aged over 50 and have £26,000 stashed away in savings (this the average for the 45 to 54 age group, according to Statista). By putting those savings into share markets and investing another £360 per month it is possible, at this rate of return, to have created a generous pension pot above £250,000 should you retire at age 65.And you don’t need to take crazy risks to make such meaty profits. I for one have built holdings in FTSE 100 royalty Unilever and Diageo, shares with a rich history of delivering annual profits and dividend growth. The brilliant brand power of their industry-leading labels, coupled with their broad geographic footprints, help them grow the bottom line year after year. I’ve bought into housebuilders like Taylor Wimpey because of their big, big near-term dividend yields as well. And I own Prudential owing to its growing influence in fast-rising emerging markets.But there’s a galaxy of other great shares to help you make big money from British blue-chips.

Concerns raised about the charity included the report’s examination of the links between Winston Churchill’s former home at Chartwell (pictured) and colonialism and whether the charity had, in undertaking this work, acted outside its charitable purposes.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Photo of Chartwell by Rob Reaks from Pexels Regulatory compliance case findings & conclusionThe regulator considered that these concerns required examination because they had the potential to damage significantly the charity’s reputation and undermine trust and confidence in charities more widely. This led it to open a regulatory compliance case in September 2020.The case assessed whether the report was in furtherance of the National Trust’s purposes, and examined its trustees’ decision making, including in managing the potential risk to the charity’s reputation in commissioning and publishing it.The regulator examined a range of evidence and material, including the National Trust’s governing documents, recent annual reports and accounts, and the research report itself, and held a formal meeting with the charity.It has concluded that the Trust has provided a well-reasoned response to the question of how the publication of the report furthered the charity’s purposes, and that the trustees were able to demonstrate that they explicitly considered and determined that commissioning and publishing the report was compatible with its charitable purposes.The regulator is satisfied that the trustees recognised and considered the potential negative reaction that could result from the publication of the report by, for example, consulting a panel of 2000 members before commissioning it, which found considerable support for research into challenging histories, provided the findings were appropriately researched and contextualised.With the report’s publication generating strongly held and divided views, the regulator however states that it is reasonable to conclude that the Trust’s planning and approach did not fully pre-empt or manage the potential risks to the charity, and that it could have done more to clearly explain the link between the report and the Trust’s purpose.However, overall, the Commission is reassured that the charity acted in line with its charitable purposes, and the trustees fulfilled their legal duties and responsibilities.Since the report’s publication, and in light of the criticism, the National Trust has worked to make clear why it commissioned this work and to reaffirm its role as a charity for all, with the regulator welcoming its commitment to learning lessons from this experience, and to taking into account a wide range of views and opinions within its membership and wider society.Helen Earner, Director of Regulatory Services at the Charity Commission, said:“We take all complaints about charities seriously, and given the level of scrutiny of this matter and the reputational risks to this much-loved household name charity, it is right that we examined this matter in detail.“In this instance, the National Trust was able to provide us with a well-reasoned response, supported by clear evidence of how it had carefully considered how this interim report fitted with its charitable objects, and we are satisfied that there are no grounds for regulatory action against the Trust.“We have already seen and welcome the charity’s commitment to learning from and responding to its recent experience, including in ensuring the Trust always remains an organisation that people of diverse opinion and positions feel able to support.” National Trust responseIn a blog written in response to the Charity Commission’s findings, National Trust Direct0r-General Hilary McGrady said the charity welcomed the regulator’s conclusion, and that it must continue to take a wide-ranging and evidence-based approach to history:“We have been reminded that we must work hard to place particular themes such as historic slavery and colonialism in a broad context at the places in our care.“For these reasons, we support a ‘retain and explain’ approach to history, and will work with government and other organisations in culture and heritage as they develop their own thinking.“This approach will underpin our research, interpretation and programming and help us to maintain an open and positive relationship with our broad range of stakeholders and members, present and future.” Melanie May | 15 March 2021 | News National Trust did not breach charity law, Commission concludes Tagged with: Charity Commission National Trust
Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 15, 2017 A Hoosier Hot, Dry 10-14 Day Stretch Developing Planting forecast last half of JuneIn the new planting and early crop development forecast, good rains this week might lead to more in the coming days, but maybe not as much as originally thought. Ryan Martin is HAT chief meteorologist. He says the next two weeks could be quite interesting to watch.“I still see a minor front that tries to come in at mid-week this coming week, but moisture totals are being eased back, both in my forecast and in both major computer models,” Martin explains. “And one of the things I’ve been talking about since last Monday is the fact that I think we’re going to start seeing a nice upper level ridge develop here. The so called ridging effect has really got the trade divided. If we see a big upper level ridge, dry, hot weather coming in, the trade takes that and runs with it as a bad sign. I think we are going to see some ridging.”Martin says we also need to keep eyes on a tropical system coming through the gulf area.“If it makes land fall on the gulf coast, that could play all sorts of havoc with weather patterns across the United States.”So, what kind of rain totals and temperatures does he look for in the Seed Consultants forecast?“I’m looking for temperatures to be near normal as we kick off the first part of this week, but if we get that upper level high pressure dome and ridge to build like I think we will, I expect temperatures through the rest of the week to climb back to above normal levels. The big question mark will be rains at mid-week, Tuesday night, Wednesday. I think we’re probably looking at moisture totals on the order of a quarter to maybe ¾ of an inch. If we get stronger thunderstorms we would have to raise that. my gut feeling is most of the strong weather stays south.”Martin says brace yourself for a lot less moisture overall in the next 10 days to 2 weeks.

Help by sharing this information News October 20, 2005 – Updated on January 25, 2016 North Korea, Eritrea and Turkmenistan are the world’s “black holes” for news East and Central Asia and the Middle East are the worst parts of the world to be a journalist, according the fourth annual Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index. Several Western democracies, including France and the United States, slipped down the Index because of serious attacks on the right of journalists to keep their sources secret. Reporters Without Borders compiled this Index of 167 countries by asking its partner organizations (14 freedom of expression groups from around the world) and its network of 130 correspondents, as well as journalists, researchers, legal experts and human rights activists, to answer 50 questions designed to assess a country’s level of press freedom. Some countries are not mentioned for lack of information about them. Organisation North Korea once again comes bottom of the Reporters Without Borders fourth annual World Press Freedom Index, released today. It is closely followed in the 167-country list by Eritrea (166th) and Turkmenistan (165th), which are other “black holes” for news where the privately-owned media is not allowed and freedom of expression does not exist. Journalists there simply relay government propaganda. Anyone out of step is harshly dealt with. A word too many, a commentary that deviates from the official line or a wrongly-spelled name and the author may be thrown in prison or draw the wrath of those in power. Harassment, psychological pressure, intimidation and round-the-clock surveillance are routine.East Asia (Burma 163rd, China 159th, Vietnam 158th, Laos 155th), Central Asia (Turkmenistan 165th, Uzbekistan 155th, Afghanistan 125th, Kazakhstan 119th) and the Middle East (Iran 164th, Iraq 157th, Saudi Arabia 154th, Syria 145th) are where journalists have the toughest time and where government repression or armed groups prevent the media operating freely.The situation in Iraq (157th) deteriorated further during the year as the safety of journalists became more precarious. At least 24 journalists and media assistants have been killed so far this year, making it the mostly deadly conflict for the media since World War II. A total of 72 media workers have been killed since the fighting began in March 2003.But more and more African and Latin American countries (Benin 25th, Namibia 25th, El Salvador 28th, Cape Verde 29th, Mauritius 34th, Mali 37th, Costa Rica 41st and Bolivia 45th) are getting very good rankings. RSF_en Western democracies slip backSome Western democracies slipped down the Index. The United States (44th) fell more than 20 places, mainly because of the imprisonment of New York Times reporter Judith Miller and legal moves undermining the privacy of journalistic sources. Canada (21st) also dropped several places due to decisions that weakened the privacy of sources and sometimes turned journalists into “court auxiliaries.” France (30th) also slipped, largely because of searches of media offices, interrogations of journalists and introduction of new press offences.At the top of the Index once again are northern European countries Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and the Netherlands, where robust press freedom is firmly established. The top 10 countries are all European. New Zealand (12th), Trinidad and Tobago (12th), Benin (25th) and South Korea (34th) are the highest-ranked countries in other continents.Press freedom, economic development and independenceCountries that have recently won their independence or have recovered it are very observant of press freedom and give the lie to the insistence of many authoritarian leaders that democracy takes decades to establish itself. Nine states that have had independence (or recovered it within the past 15 years) are among the top 60 countries – Slovenia (9th), Estonia (11th), Latvia (16th), Lithuania (21st), Namibia (25th), Bosnia-Herzegovina (33rd), Macedonia (43rd), Croatia (56th) and East Timor (58th).The Index also contradicts the frequent argument by leaders of poor and repressive countries that economic development is a vital precondition for democracy and respect for human rights. The top of the Index is heavily dominated by rich countries, but several very poor ones (with a per capita GDP of less than $1,000 in 2003) are among the top 60, such as Benin (25th), Mali (37th), Bolivia (45th), Mozambique (49th), Mongolia (53rd), Niger (57th) and East Timor (58th).
