However, only 2.8m adults took advantage of this product in the 2017-18 tax year. With that in mind, here are the five reasons why I would open a Stocks and Shares ISA 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…Saving for the future It’s never too early (or too late) to start saving for the future. Most providers will allow you to set up a Stocks and Shares ISA with a relatively small lump sum. Monthly investment plans are also available from around £50 per month. Even if you can only afford to save a couple of hundred pounds a year, it pays to make the most of your annual Stocks and Shares ISA allowance because you just don’t know what the future holds. It is best to put money away whenever you can. Tax benefits Why is this? Well, Stocks and Shares ISAs also have significant tax benefits. You don’t have to pay any capital gains or income tax on investments held within an ISA wrapper. Outside of an ISA, you receive a £2,000 dividend income allowance. A tax rate of 7.5% (for basic rate taxpayers) applies to any dividend income in excess of this level. Basic rate taxpayers also pay 20% tax on capital gains above £12,000 (for the 2019-20 tax year).A Stocks and Shares ISA means you get to keep more of hard-earned money. Invest anywhereYou are allowed to hold any investment in a Stocks and Shares ISA as long as it is traded on a “recognised” stock exchange. That means most developed markets and a handful of emerging markets.This means that investors are not limited to where they invest and can own stocks around the world. For example, if you are worried about the effects Brexit might have on the UK economy, you can balance your portfolio with overseas stocks. Investing overseas will also give you exposure to other sectors that are not necessarily broadly represented in the UK, such as technology. And you do not have to pay tax on any investment profits. When it’s gone it’s gone Another good reason to open a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2020 is the fact that the ISA allowance is a ‘use it or lose it’ allowance. Therefore, it makes sense to use as much of your allowance as possible every year. And you can withdraw your money at any time as well. Nothing is stopping you depositing money in a Stocks and Shares ISA before the allowance turns over on April 5, and then taking it out at a later date. Start compounding The fifth and final reason why I would open a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2020 is the ability to start compounding as soon as possible. Compound interest is the single greatest tool investors have to build wealth over the long term. The sooner you start compounding your money, the better. For example, since its inception, the FTSE 250 has returned 10% per annum. At this rate of return, £1,000 invested for 10 years would grow to be worth £2.7k. Over three-and-a-half decades, the total would be £33k.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The house is an open plan, based on a 7’ x 7’ modular system with columns spaced at 21’ on center. The two-way structural framing system allows for extensive cantilevers.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanCorten steel was selected for its sustainable characteristics, and aesthetics, as its weathering is complementary to desert colors. The structural components are open to view, creating a contrast to the highly polished concrete floor throughout the house. The grid of beams overhead defines the ceiling and flows beyond the glass enclosure to create outdoor rooms in the courtyard, blurring the distinction between inside and out. Perforated, Corten roof panels allow filtered daylight from the sun to reach the courtyard below.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanThe exterior enclosure of the house is glass, with perforated sunscreens and press-formed louvers layered in front of the glass where shade or privacy is needed. This creates a sense of daylight in all interior spaces and a rich texture of shades and shadows on the exterior.Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanInterior finishes were selected to achieve warmth.  Extensive millwork of natural cherry, European oak, and walnut are used throughout.

On determining the noon polar cap boundary from SuperDARN HF radar backscatter characteristics

first_imgPrevious work has shown that ionospheric HF radar backscatter in the noon sector can be used to locate the footprint of the magnetospheric cusp particle precipitation. This has enabled the radar data to be used as a proxy for the location of the polar cap boundary, and hence measure the flow of plasma across it to derive the reconnection electric field in the ionosphere. This work used only single radar data sets with a field of view limited to ∼2 h of local time. In this case study using four of the SuperDARN radars, we examine the boundary determined over 6 h of magnetic local time around the noon sector and its relationship to the convection pattern. The variation with longitude of the latitude of the radar scatter with cusp characteristics shows a bay-like feature. It is shown that this feature is shaped by the variation with longitude of the poleward flow component of the ionospheric plasma and may be understood in terms of cusp ion time-of-flight effects. Using this interpretation, we derive the time-of-flight of the cusp ions and find that it is consistent with approximately 1 keV ions injected from a subsolar reconnection site. A method for deriving a more accurate estimate of the location of the open-closed field line boundary from HF radar data is described.last_img read more

She had been out of work due to a disability before that.She still has some of her belongings in storage, but is about to lose them on Jan. 17 because she is behind in the rent of the storage units. Thus, she has started a Gofundme page to help raise $1,200 to get them back in the nick of time. She is looking for someone to help her move her belongings to her new apartment, and also for the money to pay her debt and get the belongings out of storage.Can anyone help?

He noticed the racist marking as he drove by to start his shift, although he initially mistook it as “common graffiti.”The swastika appeared to have been scrubbed somewhat in the past, but was still visible.After notifying his boss, the company sent the trailer to a new location for cleaning, the man said. When asked if the company had filed a police report, he mentioned that he did not know.North Bergen library to hold skills workshop throughout Jan.North Bergen residents looking to improve their job hunting skills are in luck.

Ocean City Mother Goes Public About Son’s Overdose Death to Fight Drug Addiction

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiOften, the obituaries for young people will discreetly note that they died “suddenly” or “unexpectedly,” without specifying the cause of death.Tyler Onesty’s obituary also said that he passed away suddenly, but it went on to disclose that the 22-year-old Ocean City resident died “from a heroin overdose, after a hard battle with addiction.”His mother, Sally Onesty, wanted Tyler’s obituary to be a loving remembrance of his life. But she also wanted it to serve as a blunt warning to other families about the perils of drug addiction, in hopes that their children won’t die in the same way as her son, a well-known and popular 2012 graduate of Ocean City High School.“I think that many students and parents can relate to Tyler. I’m in the public, so they can relate to me, too,” said Onesty, 46, the owner of A Bella Salon & Spa in Ocean City.Inspired by her son’s death, Onesty and her family are committed to fighting drug addiction by publicly speaking about Tyler’s troubles. Tyler was found dead in an Atlantic City motel room on March 7, just days after he was kicked out of a local halfway house for refusing to take a drug test, Onesty said.The decision to go public began when the family chose to livestream Tyler’s memorial service on Facebook. Onesty described it as “a call to action” to focus attention on yet another tragic drug overdose in the local community.“I have been wanting to be very public about it,” she said. “I really wanted to make addiction public.”More than 2,000 people have viewed Tyler’s service online. In addition, about 3,000 people have taken to social media to share a post that Onesty wrote about her son on her personal Facebook page.Although Tyler’s death was heartbreaking for the family, Onesty finds some solace in knowing that her son spent his last few days calling and texting his friends to warn them about the dangers of drugs.The Onesty Family musters a smile in honor of Tyler. Holding Tyler’s picture is his father Marte Onesty, standing behind him to the right is Tyler’s mother Sally, to her left is their other son Zachary, and Amanda Stilts (Zach’s girlfriend).“I think it’s a testament to my son. Even in his addiction, he was still reaching out to others and trying to get them help, even though he wouldn’t get help himself,” she said.Before slipping into addiction, Tyler had a promising life. He was intensely bright and loved sports and music, his mother said. He began playing drums at just 3 years old. In school, his achievements included playing on a championship soccer team, writing an award-winning Earth Day poem and also winning a tri-state science fair.“He had a lot of accolades,” Onesty said. “He was also very giving. He always wanted to help somebody. He was always the kid who stood up for somebody else.“He was a smart kid. He was also very well-liked. You could see that at his funeral,” she continued, noting that the service was packed.Tyler ran into trouble in his senior year at Ocean City High School, when he was arrested for dealing a large amount of marijuana, his mother said. His downward spiral continued when he apparently began using the opioid painkillers OxyContin and Percocet at about 19 years old.Happier days with family and friends.A serious car accident in 2015 landed him in the hospital, where he was given the powerful painkiller morphine. Onesty believes the morphine was a gateway drug to Tyler’s heroin addiction.The family went through drug intervention in an effort to save Tyler. Starting in 2014 and continuing to 2016, his family placed him in drug rehabilitation centers in New Jersey, Florida and California. Still, Tyler couldn’t shake the addiction that would eventually kill him.In the aftermath of Tyler’s death, Onesty has teamed up with addiction expert Tonia Ahern, an advocacy field coordinator for the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. Ahern, of Upper Township, is also a recovery coach for the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and an advocate for Parent-to-Parent, an organization that offers support and treatment for drug addicts and their families.Tonia Ahern, of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, is helping Sally Onesty, to fight the drug crisis.Ahern, noting the stigma of drug addiction, particularly when it involves heroin, stressed that many families are reluctant to confront the problem and seek treatment.“People do recover. It’s treatable,” said Ahern, who has a son in recovery. “The more people we treat, the more we can save.”Nationwide, an average of 144 people die each day of drug addiction, Ahern said. She described drug addiction as a growing problem in Cape May County, including the schools.“There’s not one school in this county that’s not affected,” she said.A poem that was given to the family from a friend.Last week, the Ocean City Board of Education approved a new policy to equip the school district with an opioid antidote to save overdose victims. Joseph S. Clark Jr., the school board president, said he wasn’t aware of any overdoses involving Ocean City students, but characterized the new antidote policy as a proactive approach toward the county’s drug problem.Onesty and Ahern called the antidote policy a good first step, but insisted that more needs to be done in the schools and within the community to fight addiction. They would like to see more community outreach, more drug treatment programs and a drug education program that would begin at the elementary school level.Overall, Cape May County has “really come together” to try to battle addiction, Ahern said. However, Ahern and Onesty want to create a communitywide coalition of schools, students, police departments, churches, hospitals and local government to address the drug crisis.Tyler – Please inspire us all to bring change.Onesty emphasized the importance of church involvement by noting that her own church, Fresh Start Church in Egg Harbor Township, has helped her family to cope with Tyler’s death. She also said that Fresh Start, where Tyler’s memorial service was held, is committed to community outreach to combat addiction.In the meantime, Onesty said she has been asked to speak in some of the schools about drug addiction. She and Ahern are planning to appear before the Ocean City Board of Education at its April meeting to discuss the new antidote policy and other ways to prevent overdose deaths.If you or a loved one are having challenges with addiction,  the following resource may be able to help you:Parent to Parent 856-983-3328City of Angels 609-910-4942CURE 609-465-6690 – help with treatment access, family and recovery support classes weeklyInterim Managing Contact Entity (IME) Hotline 844-276-2777 for state funding and Medicaid Tyler Onesty, a 2012 graduate of Ocean City High School, was only 22 when he died of a heroin overdose.last_img read more
