4 ways I plan to increase my savings in 2020 Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 4th January, 2020 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Many people use the beginning of the year to set out their personal goals for the 12 months ahead. It’s also a good idea to do the same for your finances.With that in mind, today I’m going to explain the four ways I plan to increase my savings in 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…Switch banksFirst of all, I’m planning to make the most of the current offers on the market for savers looking to switch bank accounts.Several high street banks are currently offering cash rewards for switching current accounts, and some of these also provide linked savings accounts with attractive interest rates, as well as cashback on spending.For example, First Direct is currently offering new customers £100, and you can also open a linked 2.75% regular saver account.Open a LISAAs well as switching bank accounts, I’m also going to open another LISA in 2020.Introduced several years ago, LISAs are designed to help first-time buyers and pension savers. For every £1,000 you contribute, the government gives you a top-up worth 25% or £250. You can put away a maximum of £4,000 a year, providing a potential bonus of £1,000 of government cash.Open a SIPPLISAs are not the only product that offers government cash bonus. Any contributions to a SIPP also receive tax relief at your marginal tax rate. So for basic rate taxpayers, for every £80 contributed, the government will top up your contribution by £20. You can only withdraw money from a SIPP after the age of 55, so it is not suitable for everyone. But it is a great tool to use if you are struggling to save for retirement. Start investingAll of which brings me to the fourth and final strategy I plan to use in 2020 to increase my savings — and that is to invest more. 2019 was a bumper year for stock markets around the world, and many analysts believe that barring a sudden economic shock, 2020 could be a good year for investors as well.In the current interest rate environment, investing is a great way to get your money working harder. Over the past 110 years, UK stocks have produced an average annual return in the region of 5.5% after taking into account the impact of inflation on returns. At the time of writing, even the best savings account on the market offers a negative real return (after taking into account the impact of inflation).One of the best ways to take advantage of these returns without spending hours analysing individual companies is to buy a low-cost market tracker fund. A FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 tracker fund is an excellent way to track the market at a low cost. Most tracker funds charge less than 1% per annum in management fees. When combined with the tax-free cash available with LISAs and SIPPs, these low-cost funds can be a potent tool. For example, over the past 10 years, the FTSE 100 has produced an average annual return for investors in the region of 7%.By opening a LISA and taking advantage of the government’s full £1,000 cash bonus, this suggests that you could grow your initial £4,000 investment into £5,350 in the space of just 12 months.

Refuge is “the country’s largest provider of specialist services for women and children escaping domestic violence”. RefugeHerring has suggested that his followers might want to make a donation to Refuge, and some have confirmed that they have done so.https://twitter.com/davidrhscott/status/839065304399511552https://twitter.com/mad_scientistuk/status/839459752853843969Refuge spotted his support and thanked him: AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis30 Since March 2014 Herring has been seeking out those who post this question on Twitter on International Women’s Day and responding with the answer, usually with an acerbic put-down. He recognises that the question is usually asked in a point-scoring vein, to question or undermine the need for a day which recognises and celebrates the lives and work of women. This approach has been termed sea-lioning, or “a specific, pervasive form of aggressive cluelessness, that masquerades as a sincere desire to understand”.He calmly points that, yes, there is indeed an International Men’s Day, and it is on 19 November. Tagged with: Celebrity Humour Twitter women Howard Lake | 8 March 2017 | News Writing in The Guardian on International Men’s Day in 2015, Herring said:“I love it when people try to manufacture an injustice out of a position of clear superiority.“It’s all so transparently self-centred. It’s the impulse that drives your kids on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day to whine: “When will there be a Children’s Day?”Incidentally, he took that opportunity of International Men’s Day to promote Target Ovarian Cancer because the charity was “highlighting that men matter too and saying thank you to those husbands, fathers, brothers, partners and friends who have also been affected by ovarian cancer.”He manages to keep a calm tone throughout as he hunts through Twitter for more people asking the question.

One of many ongoing protests against the continued use of racist symbols by big business sports teams.After decades of struggle, the hated racist symbol of Cleveland’s professional baseball team will finally be removed from uniforms, caps and promotional materials. The team and Major League Baseball announced on Jan. 29 that the racist mascot will be eliminated in 2019, but the bigoted name of the team will remain.Leaders of this struggle consider this a partial but important victory. Why is there a one-year delay? It is probably a business decision to make money so merchandise can be sold to the hardcore racists who miss the “good old days” of white supremacy and genocidal theft of Native land.The first demonstration to ban the caricature was held in 1971. The size and militancy of opening day actions in Cleveland grew after 1991, with the formation of the Committee of 500 Years of Dignity and Resistance.At the 1997 World Series, Vernon Bellecourt, a leader of the American Indian Movement and president of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports, was arrested for setting fire to a stuffed doll, which symbolized the despicable mascot. He did this while protesting outside Jacobs Field, now called Progressive (Insurance) Field. Juan Reyna and Juanita Helphrey from the Committee of 500 Years of Dignity and Resistance were also arrested.After charges were dropped in 1998, another attempt was made to burn the effigy. Bellecourt and Reyna were arrested again. So were Charlene Teters, a leader from Illinois of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and Media; Zizwe Tchiguka, a local leader of the All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party; and James Watson, a white member of the Committee of 500 Years of Dignity and Resistance. Once again, all charges were dropped. (Workers World, April 12, 1998)Demonstrations, lawsuits and mass media articles continued to press for the elimination of the Cleveland team’s racist name and mascot.At the 2016 Cleveland vs. Toronto American League playoffs, Canadian activists sued to stop the use of the logo based on the Ontario Human Rights Code. The struggle went international.Native fighters and their supporters will be out again at the team’s home opening game on April 6. Demonstrators will guard against any double-cross on the logo by management and plan to continue the fight against the team’s hated name.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
Despite temperatures in the high 90s, the Puerto Rican community from across Philadelphia converged at Ninth Street and Hunting Park Avenue on July 19 to demand the resignation of Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Rossello. This protest was in solidarity with the thousands of working people who have been in the streets of Puerto Rico since the second week in July demanding that Rossello leave office. The protests in Puerto Rico began following the release of almost 900 pages of group chat messages among Rossello, his top aides and lobbyists. In these they made homophobic, sexist and profane remarks against allies and foes. The protests are also condemning the governor’s slow response to the crisis following Hurricane Maria, as well as government corruption.Many protesters have drawn attention to Puerto Rico’s status as a U.S. colony and how that has negatively affected relief, aid and decision making in relation to the island.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
