The problem, though, is that the State Pension currently amounts to just £8,767 per annum. As such, it’s unlikely to be a sufficient income for most people to enjoy financial freedom in older age.Another challenge facing many is the high cost of living and the difficulty of living within your means. Even if you’re able to save an amount such as £50 per month, low interest rates mean the returns on your capital from savings accounts and Cash ISAs are disappointing.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…As such, opening a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a shrewd move. It offers the chance to invest tax-efficiently in the stock market, with £50 per month likely to have a significant impact on your long-term retirement prospects.Tracker fundsOpening a Stocks and Shares ISA is a relatively simple and cheap process. However, many people avoid investing in the stock market because they think it is likely to be complex and expensive.While that may have been true in the past, online sharedealing has made buying shares straightforward and highly accessible to a wide range of investors. In fact, it’s possible to buy a diverse range of shares with a sum of £50 per month through an index tracker fund.A tracker fund seeks to mimic the returns of a specific index, such as the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 and, in doing so, offers the chance for an investor to access a similar rate of return to that offered by the index in question. Since both indexes have offered high single-digit annual returns since their inceptions, the returns of tracker funds could make a major impact on your retirement prospects.Furthermore, tracker funds also provide a high amount of diversity. They essentially offer exposure to the whole index, which is made up of a range of companies operating in different sectors and geographies. This can reduce your overall risk, and may improve your return prospects.Investing potentialInvesting £50 per month in a FTSE 100 index tracker fund could produce a surprisingly large retirement nest egg in the long run. For example, assuming the FTSE 100 delivers a total annual return of 9%, investing that monthly amount could lead to a portfolio valued at £315,000 over a 45-year working life.Of course, many people may not have a 45-year time period to invest. But the example serves to show the stock market can be accessed with modest sums of capital and, when undertaken on a regular basis with compounding allowed to boost returns over the long run, it can lead to a worthwhile end sum which provides a passive income in retirement.Therefore, starting to invest in the stock market through an index tracker fund could be a worthwhile move. As your portfolio increases in size, you may wish to consider individual shares to potentially obtain an even higher return than that offered by the wider stock market. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

David Pocock will captain Australia for the first timeWestern Force flanker David Pocock will captain the Qantas Wallabies for the first time after being named to lead Australia in Saturday’s match against the Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium in London (kick-off 2.35pm local, 1.35am, Sun 27 Nov, AEDST)The 23-year-old, who is a two-time nominee for the International Rugby Board’s Player of the Year, led the Force for the first time in Super Rugby earlier this year during the Western Australian team’s 27-24 win over the Melbourne Rebels in the final round of this year’s competition . He also led the Australian team at the Under-20 World Cup in Wales in 2008.The Pocock appointment comes after Qantas Wallabies coach Robbie Deans and his fellow selectors opted to start regular skipper James Horwill from the bench, in order to lighten what has been a heavy work load for the 26-year-old through the 2011 season. Horwill featured in all 18 games of the Queensland Reds’ title-winning season in Super Rugby, and has subsequently sat out just two of the 12 Tests played by the Wallabies in the year to date.“While he ended the Rugby World Cup with a bit of a shoulder niggle, James is in good nick, given the load that he has carried,” Deans says. “We just felt that this was a good opportunity, both to lessen the load on James, while also giving David the chance to gain experience captaining the side.”Deans says that Pocock already has a significant influence in on and off field decision making anyway, as a member of the team’s leadership group. Taking on the captaincy for this match simply offers him an opportunity to broaden his leadership skills, while also providing additional support to Horwill.The new skipper will be surrounded by the core of the side which beat Wales 21-18 in the Bronze Final at last month’s Rugby World Cup.One notable positional change sees James O’Connor start at flyhalf for the first time, after previously having appeared on the wing or at fullback. The move had long been flagged as likely for the talented 21-year-old, with the Wallabies taking the opportunity to move the goal-kicking utility closer to the action in the absence from this tour of Quade Cooper, who has been the regular custodian at 10 this year.O’Connor will play outside halfback Will Genia, and inside of NSW Waratahs playmaker Berrick Barnes, who will start at inside centre.Barnes’ NSW Waratahs colleague Rob Horne also gains a starting role, although he completed all but nine minutes of the Bronze medal match in Auckland after replacing an injured Kurtley Beale. That chance saw Horne slot in at centre, with the versatile Adam Ashley-Cooper moved to fullback, and is a formation that Deans has retained for this weekend’s contest. Starting XV:15.

(Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images) Horwill’s relocation aside, the starting forward pack is the same as that which Australia fielded in its most recent Test outing. The bench does show a slightly different look, with uncapped loose forward Dave Dennis and inside centre Ben Tapuai, both featuring amongst a five-forward, two-back, breakdown amongst the run on substitutes.While Australia has a good recent record against the Barbarians, the squad has inside knowledge of the motivation the representatives of the festival club will bring to the game, with Ashley-Cooper, O’Connor and Genia all having appeared for the Baabaas during their win over the touring South African side last year.Ashley-Cooper and Genia were also involved the year before, when the Barbarians beat an All Black side prepared by the men who have been directing operations for the Baabaas this week – All Black coaches Graham Henry and Steve Hansen.“It’s an amazing tradition that the Barbarians have. Receiving the opportunity to play for the club on the big stage, in games like the one this weekend, is a huge honour,” Genia says. “Being able to play in these games for the Baabaas is a privilege – because selection comes by invitation – but it also carries with it a huge responsibility to perform. Make no mistake, this is going to be a tough match.”The Genia warning is echoed by Deans, who points to Australia’s experience against the Baabaas at Wembley Stadium on the 2008 Spring Tour, where the Wallabies needed a late try to squeeze home 18-11 in a dramatic contest against a star-studded Barbarians cast not dis-similar in quality to the line-up that has been chosen to represent the club on Saturday.“They’re all proud men,” Deans says of the Barbarians group, “and they will be looking at this match as a great opportunity with no significant downside.“The Baabaas results against New Zealand and South Africa in the last two years have shown what is possible, and what they can bring to the occasion. They’ve got class players all over the field who will play without fear or inhibition. That is going to make them a very tough outfit to beat.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS

This is change that is required from all of us, both individually and by the organisations that we work in and with. We want to ensure that our clients have the tools and understanding to make this change a possibility. We hope that the sector finds this guide helpful and that it joins us on this journey to creating a more diverse and inclusive space for everyone to thrive.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Tagged with: diversity equality inclusion Charity and non-profit specialist legal firm Bates Wells has launched Diversity in Action, a guide for charities, social enterprises and other non-profit organisations on best practice in diversity and inclusivity.Covering a range of issues relevant to the sector, Diversity in Action provides an overview of the Equality and Diversity Act 2010, how to encourage diversity in membership charities, practical information for charities wishing to restrict services to particular groups, tips to improve diversity within an organisation, and why the principles of diversity and inclusion should be embedded within a charity’s governance.The guide answers questions such as:– Is discrimination ever lawful?– Can a charity support only women and not men?– Why doesn’t the Equality Act apply to trustees?– Isn’t positive action discriminatory?The guide is available on the Bates Wells website and is free for anyone to use, and comes as recent research by AECVO shows that only 9% of charity employees and 6% of CEOs are from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups and that 68% of BAME charity sector employees had experienced, witnessed, or heard stories about racism in their time in the charity sector. This week has also seen Cancer Research UK launch its first EDI strategy.Simon Steeden, partner in the charity team at Bates Wells commented:“In response to an increasing number of client conversations around the challenges currently faced by the sector in terms of diversity, representation and inclusivity, we wanted to pull together an easy-to-use guide” says It gives specialist advice and guidance to help not-for-profits navigate the law in these areas and incorporate good practice in their organisations.”Samara Lawrence, a solicitor at Bates Wells, who helped register Black Lives Matter UK as a Community Benefit Society last year, added: Advertisement
Home Indiana Agriculture News AcreValue puts Farmland Data all Together on Screen SHARE AcreValue puts Farmland Data all Together on Screen Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 10, 2016 SHARE AcreValue now availableIf you’re involved in farmland and own, rent or are looking to buy or sell land, check out AcreValue, a valuable and free online tool. Tamar Tashjian, general manager of AcreValue, says the tool is a single, centralized site that aggregates all of the important information you need.“Today on AcreValue in 46 states you can pull a soil map or a history of crop rotation on any field available on the site, and in four states, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Minnesota, we analyze that information in addition to maybe 15 other variables to estimate the value per field.”That’s the Automated Valuation Model which is now in those 4 states, including Indiana, where users see estimated prices for land in addition to the soil map and production history for any piece of farmland in the state.Tashjian says AcreValue is available to anyone who is active or will become active in the farmland market.“Most of the data is already available for free on other government and public resources. It’s also available for free on AcreValue and we just make it more convenient to have that information in one place and with an easy to use interface to locate your field and get instant information about everything we can aggregate about that land from public data.”Chris Seifert is the lead data scientist and creator of AcreValue, and the idea originated at his family’s farm.“AcreValue came out of a, shall we say heated family discussion about whether to sell part of the farm or not and what the state of the farmland market was and how our land compared to land in the county or the township. As part of that I had been out in Silicon Valley for a while working with other companies like Google and Climate Corporation, and so I really wanted to gather as much data together in one place about the land, and I was disappointed there wasn’t a place like Zillow or Trulia where you could find a feeling for the market. So AcreValue really kind of came out of that.”Once the model was created for his family it was obvious that it would work for many of the nation’s farm families. Free access is at acrevalue.com.
