New figures from the Association of Investment Companies show I’m not alone, and the two most searched for investment trusts are both favourites of mine – Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT) and City of London Investment Trust (LSE: CTY).Scottish MortgageScottish Mortgage was the most viewed investment company for the third year in a row, and with good reason. The FTSE 100-listed investment company has smashed its benchmarks to return an incredible 509% over the past 10 years. If you had invested £10,000 a decade ago, you would have £60,900 today.This £8.5bn behemoth invests in a high-conviction, global portfolio of companies, with the aim of achieving a greater return than the FTSE All World Index.My one concern is that it is heavily invested in the US, 53% of its portfolio, to be precise, and has been flattered by the country’s lengthy bull run. Its top 10 holdings include big names such as Amazon, Tesla Motors and Netflix.It could struggle if the US market falls, as it must do one day. However, around 20% of its portfolio is in China, where it holds Alibaba Group and Tencent Holdings, and 18% in the eurozone. With just 2.3% exposure to UK equities, it gives you ample diversification from our home market.Better still, Scottish Mortgage has a low ongoing charges fee of just 0.37%. The downside is that it trades at a 1.4% premium to net asset value, although that is actually lower than its long-term average of 1.7%. The yield is just 0.54%. If you still believe in the US stock market, this could be a good place to buy into it.City of LondonCity of London is also well worth a look. Over 10 years, it has grown 176.5%. That is less spectacular than Scottish Mortgage, but it operates in a different sector, UK equity income, which hasn’t done as well as the US. This is a great income fund though, currently yielding a generous 4.28%.This £1.7bn fund also has low ongoing charges of just 0.39%, and trades at a premium of 1.9% to net asset value, slightly higher than its long-term average of 1.2%.Top 10 holdings are a roster of familiar names – Royal Dutch Shell, HSBC Holdings, Diageo, BP, Lloyds Banking Group and others you will recognise.Scottish Mortgage and City of London operate in different sectors, and could complement each other very nicely as part of a balanced portfolio.last_img read more

Zika – The Top 8 Myths

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSOrange County GovernmentZika Previous article2016 Ryder Cup – Day One SummaryNext articleMatthew expected to bring life-threatening rainfall to Haiti Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Please enter your comment! Orange County Government’s Mosquito Control Division encourages citizens to take an active role in reducing their exposure to mosquitoes. Educating yourself with information about the Zika virus is an important preventive measure for you, your family and the community. Following are some common myths about the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus.1. MYTH: I live close to ponds, swamps and lakes, so I’m more at risk for Zika because mosquitoes live and breed in those areas.TRUTH: Although there are up to 40 mosquito species in Central Florida, the two types of mosquitoes that can potentially transmit the Zika virus – Aedes aegypti (Yellow Fever mosquito) and Aedes albopictus (Asian Tiger mosquito) – do NOT breed in wetlands such as ponds, swamps and lakes. These types of mosquitoes are “urban” mosquitoes and they rely on humans for survival. These insects are typically day biters and are drawn to standing water in small, artificial containers. They lay their eggs in shallow water and it takes only five days for the larvae to develop into adults. Therefore, it’s essential to get rid of standing water around your home and “Tip, Toss and Cover.”2. MYTH: The mosquitoes that potentially carry Zika can travel far and fly long distances.TRUTH: These mosquitoes tend to travel about 150 yards from where they are born. Females live about a month and males have a shorter life span. That’s why it’s so important to get rid of the standing water around your home. Remember, it’s not the mosquitoes that move this virus, it’s people who move the virus.3. MYTH: If I’m not pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, I don’t have to worry about Zika.TRUTH: Although the most serious health risks of Zika pertain to pregnant women because the virus has been linked to cause a significant birth defect known as microcephaly, this is an issue that every citizen should be concerned and vigilant about in their prevention measures. If you are carrying the Zika virus and a mosquito bites you, that mosquito may contract Zika and infect the next person it bites. The virus is spread from mosquito to human to mosquito to human. Humans can also transmit the virus sexually. Only one in five people exhibit symptoms from the virus, and thus, may unknowingly have the virus and transmit it to someone else.4. MYTH: You can get rid of the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus just by spraying.TRUTH: Spraying is part of the solution in targeting mosquitoes. It’s comforting to know that the spray’s active ingredient, which is found in many flea and tick treatments and shampoos for dogs as well as lice treatments, is not harmful to humans. Unfortunately, you can’t “spray your way” out of this problem. Spraying isn’t as effective with these mosquitoes primarily because spraying is not done during the day when these mosquitoes are active. Spraying is typically done after sundown because the control materials in the spray are broken down by sunlight. In the evening, these day-biting mosquitoes can rest and hide in plants and under leaves. The most effective way to control these insects is to get rid of their larvae habitat – and that is achieved by eliminating standing water.5. MYTH: My pets are at risk for Zika.TRUTH: There is no indication that Zika affects anyone but mosquitoes and humans.6. MYTH: Certain types of animals can control the mosquito population.TRUTH: Animals such as bats, owls and other birds cannot control the mosquito population. Although they may include mosquitoes in their diet, they do not consume enough mosquitoes to make a significant difference in their populations. The mosquitoes that carry Zika are day biters, so they’re on a different schedule than nocturnal bats.7. MYTH: These types of mosquitoes are new and have recently traveled to Florida.TRUTH: The Yellow Fever mosquito was introduced to the United States in the late 1800s and the Asian Tiger mosquito arrived in the 1980s. Orange County Mosquito Control has been combatting these types of mosquitoes for decades. Orange County has been proactively and aggressively combatting these mosquitoes because they can also potentially carry chikungunya and dengue fever, which produce flu-like symptoms characterized by a high fever and joint pain. Proactive measures by Mosquito Control have always included targeting these types of mosquitoes.8. MYTH: These mosquitoes can breed in damp soil.TRUTH: Damp soil, patches of wet grass or damp leaves are not breeding grounds for these types of mosquitoes. Mosquito larvae are aquatic organisms. The preferred breeding habitat is standing or still water. As little as one teaspoon or bottle cap of water standing for more than one week is enough for mosquitoes to breed and multiply. At least once a week, empty, turn over or cover anything that could hold water. You have entered an incorrect email address!

AFBF Market Intel Series Details Emerging Ecosystem Credit Markets

first_img The American Farm Bureau Federation is publishing a series of Market Intel articles focusing on opportunities and challenges of agricultural ecosystem credit markets. AFBF Economist Shelby Myers says the series provides farmers and ranchers the information they need before making any commitments to participate in these new markets.“With so many options and so many potential partners, it may be difficult for farmers to get all the information that they need before signing a contract. So, AFBF is releasing a series of Market Intels, we’re going to have five parts, that just kind of breakdown what agricultural ecosystem credit markets are, the opportunities and challenges that they present farmers, and some of the policy levers and many other factors that might be involved.”Myers says agriculture has been working on climate smart practices through conservation stewardship for decades.“When you look back at agriculture’s increased productivity by 287 percent since 1990 without using any additional resources, that’s a big statement. And so, these ag ecosystem credit markets are a voluntary incentive-based option for farmers and ranchers to expand their ability to adopt conservation practices. If it’s done in an economically viable way, it can also go hand-in-hand with what they’re already doing on the farm.”She says many of these markets are still in development and looking for farmers and ranchers to participate in pilot programs.“So, going forward it will be important to know that these credit markets are constantly evolving, and many are still under development or being refined, and farmers and ranchers should do as much research as they can to evaluate the options not only company by company, but also asset by asset, and the practices that are involved before they make any decisions about signing contracts and agreeing to participate in any of these markets.”View the series on the Market Intel page at fb.org.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE AFBF Market Intel Series Details Emerging Ecosystem Credit Markets Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News AFBF Market Intel Series Details Emerging Ecosystem Credit Markets Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Mar 17, 2021 SHARE Previous articleFarmer Radio Listening Stays Strong During PandemicNext articleFarm Bureau Gives Back to Hungry Americans Through ‘Harvest for All’ Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

Fort Worth water line bursts, floods Trinity Park

first_imgFacebook Twitter Linkedin Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature printCrews worked to repair a 48-inch concrete pipe that burst Saturday morning in Trinity Park.Mary Gugliuzza, the communications coordinator for the Fort Worth Water Department, said that the water flow will continue until at least tomorrow.Sections of South University Drive across from the Botanic Gardens were closed off by police officers due to excess water flowing onto the street.At around 12:15 p.m., a crew from the Fort Worth Water Department worked to close a valve that was connected to the main line that flooded.“This is just one,” Gugliuzza said. “There are multiple valves involved in shutting down that main.”Gugliuzza said the line that burst was used to connect several smaller lines. All of the smaller lines would need to be shut off to cease the water flow.She also said the repair process for a burst like this is not simple.“We will have to bring in a concrete pipe contractor,” she said. “Those pipes are steel reinforced so they need to assist with that repair.”In addition to flooding and road closures, some local businesses were affected by the burst.

New government says it has identified those who set fire to newspaper last August

first_img Receive email alerts It was policemen who “set fire” to the independent daily Postoup on 19 August, Ukrainian interior minister Hennady Moskal said yesterday in Lviv. He said the police officers responsible have been identified and he has urged them to “confess everything. The fire caused a great deal of damage, destroying seven years of photo archives. The opposition of that time – then led by Viktor Yushchenko, now president – had described the fire as an attempt to intimidate an opposition newspaper.——————————————————————-20 August 2004 Newspaper office burned and journalist attackedReporters Without Borders called today on Ukrainian interior minister Mykola Bilokon to investigate “thoroughly and openly” a fire that destroyed part of the offices of the independent daily Postoup in the western town of Lviv on 19 August. It noted that the fire, which the authorities said was deliberately set, came two months before national presidential elections.It also called for a speedy enquiry into whether a 17 August attack on Dmytro Shkuropat, of the daily paper Iskra, in Zaporizhya (570 km south of Kiev), was related to his journalistic work.The early-morning fire at Postoup caused extensive damage, especially to the paper’s library. Managing director Andriy Bilous told Reporters Without Borders that a smaller fire had broken out at the paper’s offices a week earlier.
