Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img The big investment story of recent days has been the rocketing gold price. The precious metal just soared to record highs close to $2,000 per ounce and dragged the share prices of gold-producing UK shares with it.It seems gold has plenty more scope to surge in the weeks, months, and possibly even years ahead. With this in mind, I reckon buying UK shares that provide exposure to the yellow metal is an excellent idea in August.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…Bullion’s bounce in 2020 has been chiefly down to Covid-19 and concerns over the pandemic’s macroeconomic consequences. Frantic central bank money-pumping and fresh concerns over US and Chinese trade relations have helped self-haven interest too.What’s commanded less attention is the role that the sinking US dollar has played in driving prices of greenback-denominated commodities to the stars. A falling buck makes it cheaper to buy the likes of gold.The dire dollarHowever, concerns over the value of the US dollar are gaining traction as we move into August. It’s why the US dollar index — an instrument which measures the value of the dollar against a basket of other currencies — has just slipped to two-year lows.There’s a growing school of experts who reckon the descent is here to stay too. Take those over at Goldman Sachs, for example. They said this week that “real concerns around the longevity of the US dollar as a reserve currency have started to emerge.”This is because of rising inflation due to ultra-loose Federal Reserve monetary policy, rising Covid-19 infection rates, intense political and social uncertainty, and record levels of government debt.But Goldman Sachs went one step further. With the US dollar tipped to remain under pressure, it believes that bullion prices could charge to $2,300 per ounce within the next 12 months.Gold surge boosts UK sharesSo it seems buying into gold-producing UK shares remains an excellent idea right now. Buying gold stocks is a better idea than buying the physical metal itself, or buying a metal-backed financial instrument like an exchange-traded fund. Doing this allows investors to track movements in the gold price while receiving dividends.And boy, there are some brilliant dividend payers to be found among such UK shares. Centamin and Highland Gold Mining offer the largest yields from gold stocks. These sit at 4.6% and 4.5% respectively. Meanwhile, Polymetal International of the FTSE 100 offers a meaty 4.3% yield for 2020 too.Polymetal’s generated some of the best returns on the FTSE 100, thanks to the booming gold price. Someone who’d invested in this gold stock two years ago would have enjoyed a mighty total shareholder return (that’s taking into account share price rises and dividends) of 215%.It’s this sort of performance that can help UK shares buyers make a million or more. And I’m backing gold shares like this to keep delivering exceptional shareholder profits in the years to come. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

French clubs not budging on Heineken Cup

first_img Steady as she Goze: Ligue Nationale de Rugby big dog Paul Goze is standing firm against ERC and their mediatorBy Alan DymockAS LIKELY to budge as a bachelor who has taken a wrong turn and ended up backstage at a Victoria Secret show, Ligue Nationale de Rugby (LNR) have joined Premiership Rugby in renouncing the European Rugby Cup’s (ERC) attempts to mediate an accord.Although ERC have pencilled in a date for an independent mediator, Graeme Mew, to wade in and get the renegades and the status quo on talking terms on October 23, LNR chief Paul Goze yesterday reiterated LNR’s plans to back the splintering ‘Rugby Champions Cup.’Defending “international interest”: IRB’s Bernard LapassetTalking to AFP, Goze said: “I totally exclude returning to negotiations, they have failed for fifteen months, they will not come to a resolution in a fortnight. There are contracts that have been signed by various parties that mean there are no opportunities.“Creating a new competition will help us out of the trap which we have been in for several months. It is not just a desire to carry out a coup.” These comments came 24 hours after the all-French launch of this season’s Heineken Cup, where mischievous Toulon boss Bernard Laporte said: “I saw the trophy today at the launch and the trophy said to me: ‘The weather is beautiful in Toulon and the girls are beautiful and I don’t want to leave’. That’s what I am going to say to my players.”Perhaps the trophy does want to return to the south of France. After all, it could be the trophy’s final resting place or at least at this rate somewhere for it to gather dust while the arguments and conjecture go on and on. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Toulon’s coach Bernard Laporte embraces a player after winning the French Top 14 semifinal rugby union match Toulon vs Toulouse on May 24, 2013 at the Beaujoire stadium in Nantes, western France. AFP PHOTO JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARD (Photo credit should read JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARD/AFP/Getty Images) He also said of Mew’s appointment: “He may be able to mediate on the organisation of the competition, but with regards to the fundamental problem of this competition, we have passed the stage of negotiation. We have reached a dead end and we must find a way out. If we do not take the initiative, he will not. ”This stands in harsh contrast with the words of Bernard Lapasset, the IRB chairman, who also told AFP: “[We] will ensure we have a European competition which fulfils its name, which is not confiscated by some nations but has a real international interest.Trophy talker: Toulon’s Bernard Laporte spoke with the cup“The IRB will defend this principle: not a privatisation of a competition in the interest of some people.”last_img read more

Council urged to give self-employed a break

first_imgFINE Gael councillor Adam Teskey has accused Limerick City and County Council of being “unwilling” to work with people struggling to pay development levies.He told the council’s Economic Development Strategic Policy Committee (SPC), that he was calling on the local authority to review its schedule of development levies to ensure that such charges apply exclusively to new builds.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “This is an extra burden on start-up businesses. You need to look more strategically at it and engage with people a little more logically. We don’t want them to feel the door is shut in their face,” Cllr Teskey told the council executive.Speaking to the Limerick Post after the meeting, the Adare-Rathkeale representative explained that, commercially, he has a problem with the council charging development levies to a building where there was a change of use or where a small extension was added.“This should be wavered. After all, the council was paid a substantial amount on the original levies and will further benefit from rates in the future. There should be a willingness to help the self-employed more as opposed to creating substantial financial obstacles. These businesses create valued employment and should be encouraged.“Businesses find themselves paying these type of levies along with rates, insurance, bin collection, VAT on light and heat, PRSI for employees. Businesses have also to pay a license fee to listen to the radio, plus all the other taxes one would associate with being self-employed. It’s time the self-employed were given a break,” he explained.“In relation to residential home owners, a building which was built before 2004 did not have levies on them as they were not implemented at that stage. However, if a home owner built an addition to their home before this period and applied for planning retention after 2004 they are subject to paying levies.“In one particular case, a person had to pay in excess of €3,000 when they applied for planning retention for a home which was built in the 1990’s. The council would not agree to discount any of the amount, would not reduce it on a gesture of goodwill. There is a lot of people affected by this including pensioners. The council should be more lenient with regards to this,” he said.However, Fianna Fail councillor Kevin Sheahan was not happy with Cllr Teskey’s claim that the council was unwilling to work with people.“I pay tribute to the executive for their manner of cooperation at all times. I’ve always found them willing to work with me,” he said.Independent councillor Emmet O’Brien was “shocked” to learn that councillors Teskey and Sheahan did not agree on something.“Normally they are joined at the hip. The grand alliance!” he said.Director of Economic Development and Planning, Pat Daly assured Cllr Teskey that council was “innovative” when it comes to working on finding solutions for people.“We work on a case-by-case basis,” he added.

It is a great privilege to get to witness this incredible work first-hand and to meet the other volunteers from Specsavers and The Law Society of Ireland”.HOPE Honorary Director, Maureen Forrest, thanked the Rose of Tralee Festival committee for their ongoing support and said she was delighted and grateful to have such wonderful people in Kolkata supporting the foundation’s work.I am humbled by the support we have received from the Irish public in the past 20 years. These are the forgotten children, born into a world of dire poverty. As people like Sinead give just a little of their time, skills, knowledge, wisdom, compassion, wealth and love, the world becomes a better place.”Over the coming weeks, Limerick people will be encouraged to buy a Gift of HOPE, download or purchase their new album called ‘Friends of HOPE’ or donate to help continue the work in Kolkata for Christmas, at www.giftsofhope.ieFor as little as a €5 donation a week a child’s education can be sponsored.center_img WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Printlast_img read more

Donny Richards has stories about the Call of the turkey

first_img Published 8:23 pm Friday, April 9, 2021 Sponsored Content Print Article Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration You Might Like Farm-City wins top state award at banquet Pike County’s Farm-City Committee took home the top award at the annual Alabama Farm-City banquet in Birmingham on Thursday night…. read more Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Skip By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen That huge cedar tree provided the wood and the inspiration for Richards’ “Come Heah Tuh Me” turkey call business that has turkey hunters beating paths to his door.And, throughout the years, Richards stands by his original box call that has an 18-inch beard to its credit. And he is just as confident in his pot calls.“It’s all in knowing how to call,” he said. “By not knowing how to use a turkey call, a hunter can shoot himself in the foot swapping one call to get another one. Bringing up a turkey is all in knowing how to use the call.”Turkey calling is an art and Donny Richards is an artist. He can play the music that will bring a boss gobbler on the run. “Some hunters call too loud,” he said, adding with a smile, “What’s wrong with sweet talking?”When turkey season is in, the gobblers and hens have been away from each other for months. “You want to get them together,” Richards said.So, knowing how to play a call is paramount in any hunter’s success.“If you don’t know how to play a turkey call, then you might as well go to Walmart and get a plastic one,” Richards said. “A successful turkey hunter will learn to play a call, just like an artist who has never painted a picture has to learn.”Richards has learned well. Whether he is orchestrating a turkey hunt or teaching others how to play the call. His “Come Heah Tuh Me” box calls are made of wood from as close to home and as distant as Africa and South Korea and with slate from river bottoms Some of his wood box calls are basic while others have added slate for better orchestration.  Many of his pan calls include slate and window glass, but Richards stands behind them all. However, Richards does have concerns that the turkey population is way down because of predators, including raccoons, possums and hawks and scavengers that eat the turkey eggs.“A hen may lay 15 eggs but, perhaps, only 1.5 will survive,” Richards said. “You can’t have .5 so, only one egg might survive. When eggs are lost, that’s a whole year of reproduction. That’s why turkey hunters are concerned about the decreasing turkey population.”However, Richards said turkey hunters are responsible hunters and advocates for the sport so the sound of the turkey call remains music to his ears. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Latest Stories Donny Richards has stories about the Call of the turkey Richards is a throwback to the times when storytelling was about the only entertainment folks had. He loves to tell stories and he’s good at it. Richards thoughtfully picked up the turkey call named Ol’ Lusty.“Bob Jernigan and his son, Clay, turkey hunted together,” Richards said. “When Bob heard a turkey gobble, he would say, ‘sounds like ol’ lusty.’ After Bob died, Clay asked me to put ol’ lusty on one of my calls. So, I named my new call, Ol ‘Lusty in memory of Bob and honoring his love of the hunt.” Email the author The sun was making its daily appearance just over the towering oaks on Gobbler Lake Road in rural Pike County.But, the sounds coming from Donny Richards’ “Come Heah Tuh Me” Custom-Made Turkey Calls workshop weren’t from turkeys.“Baby chicks from Tractor Supply,” Richards said as he turned on the lights without any more explanation about the caged chicks. “Yep, this one is new and the best turkey call you’ll ever get. I call it ‘Ol’ Lusty’ and there’s a story behind it.” Richards takes pride in his latest turkey call that has a sound chamber that is “pure turkey.”But, then, Richards stands behind all his calls, from the first calls he made from a cedar tree that was growing out of his great-great-great-granddaddy’s chest. That’s another story.Nobody knows how long that cedar tree had been growing in his ancestor’s grave but a limb that remains is a good eight inches across.

Energy Star’s thermostat recommendations surprise the internet

first_imgEmilija Randjelovic/iStock(WASHINGTON) — A federal program is taking some serious heat for recommending that homes be kept at 78 degrees during the day.Energy Star, a program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, said people should set their thermostat to 78 degrees when they are home and “need cooling” in an effort to save energy during the spring and summer.And when you’re sleeping or away, the suggested temperatures go up. When sleeping, it’s recommended that the thermostat is kept at 82 degrees, and when away, people should set the thermostat to 85 degrees, Energy Star said.The recommendations were met with a slew of objections online, mainly with people shocked over the implication that 78 degrees should be used for cooling.The U.S. Department of Energy also recommended setting the thermostat to 78 degrees when home.This report was featured in the Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019, episode of ABC News’ daily news podcast, “Start Here.”Scorching temperatures this summer have left people in need of serious cool downs. July was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, with an average global temperature of 1.71 degrees above the 20th century average of 60.4 degrees, according to meteorologists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
