Follow these 3 simple steps today Planning for retirement can cause a significant amount of worry. After all, it involves building a nest egg that must financially sustain you in older age.As such, it makes sense to consider your time horizon, and to invest in assets that are appropriate in terms of being able to deliver on your goals.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…Furthermore, choosing your investments carefully can lead to lower risk, as well as higher returns that ultimately provide you with a larger retirement fund.Time horizonOne of the most important aspects of planning for retirement is determining your time horizon. In other words, working out approximately how long until you plan to stop working. Although this can be a difficult consideration for many people to make, it can impact on the types of assets that you plan to hold.For example, if you have a long time horizon (perhaps a decade or more) it may be a good idea to consider riskier assets such as shares. They may experience volatility in the short run that can be a cause for concern. But in the long run, and more importantly over your time horizon, they have the potential to produce higher returns than other mainstream assets.By focusing on your time horizon, you can ensure that your portfolio is invested in the most suitable assets. This can help to pacify concerns about the performance of your portfolio prior to retirement.Cash opportunitiesWhile holding cash may have produced a relatively solid income return in the past, low interest rates at the present time mean that its returns may lag inflation over the medium term. As such, investors who are seeking to either build a retirement portfolio, or generate a passive income from a nest egg, may be better off investing their capital elsewhere.One option could be dividend stocks. They are undervalued in many instances at the present time, and could provide significantly higher total returns than cash that boosts the performance of your portfolio. Likewise, their income return may be higher than cash, which could lead to a higher passive income in older age that helps to allay concerns about your retirement income.Fundamental strengthWhen investing in stocks, it is imperative to focus on the fundamental strength of the companies being purchased. Checking aspects of a business such as its debt levels, cash flow and strategy can lead to higher returns, as well as a lower risk of loss. It may mean that your risk/reward ratio is more appealing, and could help to reduce fears surrounding the performance of your portfolio.With the world economy currently experiencing an uncertain period, fundamentally-sound shares could gain favour among investors. This may mean that they outperform the wider market, and could improve your retirement prospects. Therefore, taking the time to analyse your potential holdings could be a worthwhile move.

Winning feeling: Sam Warburton celebrates with the Lions against Australia (Getty Images) Bookmakers SportNation have offered up odds for candidates to assist in South Africa Lions 2021 Sam Warburton and Ronan O’Gara among favourites to assist Warren GatlandFormer Lions stars Sam Warburton and Ronan O’Gara are ahead of the pack to be assistants to Warren Gatland on the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa, according to bookmakers SportNation.The news broke yesterday that Gatland will be head coach of the Lions for the third tour in a row, though the Kiwi is reportedly still to formally sign a deal. It is unspecified when he will officially begin his duties – his first priority is coaching Wales at Rugby World Cup 2019 – but speculation has already begun about which coaches he will ask to help take on the Springboks.O’Gara, currently working as an assistant coach with the Canterbury Crusaders in Super Rugby, is installed as favourite with SportNation, coming in at 2/1 to work with Gatland in South Africa. The former fly-half played in two Tests for the Lions, coming off the bench in New Zealand in 2005 and again in 2009, in South Africa.Highly rated: O’Gara has earned plaudits for coaching in NZ and France (Getty Images)Meanwhile, recently-retired Welsh flanker Warburton comes in at 4/1. He captained the Lions on the previous two tours under Gatland, leading the side in the series victory over Australia in 2013 and in the drawn series with New Zealand in 2017. Alex Sanderson, coaching the forwards and defence at Saracens, is third on the log while another newcomer to the list is Harlequins scrum coach and former Lions tighthead Adam Jones.Below the Welsh international are a raft of men who all worked with Gatland on the previous Lions tour to New Zealand.The current odds for assistants according to SportNation are:Ronan O’Gara 2/1Sam Warburton 4/1Alex Sanderson 3/1Adam Jones 3/1Rob Howley 1/2Steve Borthwick 6/5Andy Farrell 8/15Neil Jenkins 4/9Graham Rowntree 4/6 Who would you like to see help coach the team in South Africa?

ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service] The budget for the Episcopal Church in the 2013-2015 triennium was unanimously adopted by the 77th General Convention July 11 with little fanfare.Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance chair Diane Pollard, deputy from New York, moved the budget’s enabling Resolution A005 in the House of Deputies. The members debated the budget for about 20 minutes, rejecting three attempts to change its revenue or expense categories.Earlier in the day, the deputies had spent an hour discussing the budget as a committee of the whole before beginning formal debate.They passed the budget on a voice vote, with no dissenting voice heard, and sent it to the House of Bishops where Maine Bishop Steve Lane, PB&F vice chair, asked his colleagues to concur.Three bishops spoke to the house, taking just more than three minutes, before the house approved the budget by voice vote.The budget, as proposed July 10 by the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance, is balanced at $111,516,032, compared to $111,808,350 for the current triennium, and comes with a very small surplus of $30,000.The budget is available here.Diocese of Fort Worth Deputy Katie Sherrod, right, and Deputy Barbara Caum of Bethlehem consult July 11 as Sherrod prepares to comment on the proposed 2013-2015 budget during the House of Deputies’ committee of the whole session prior to formal debate. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergThe spending portion of the budget is allocated according to the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, and the categories of administration and governance.The budget assumes $73.5 million in commitments from the church’s dioceses (line 2), nearly $4 million less than that in the current triennium. That total is based on keeping at 19 percent the amount that the church asks dioceses to annually contribute to the church-wide budget.Each year’s annual giving in the three-year budget is based on a diocese’s income two years earlier, minus $120,000. General Convention’s 2010-2012 budget was based on a 21 percent asking in 2010, 20 percent in 2011 and 19 percent in 2012.While the budget asks for 19 percent from the dioceses each year, not all dioceses give the full amount and thus the projected diocesan income is forecast, in part, on giving trends. For instance, Barnes told the committee earlier in the convention that the average rate of giving in 2012 has been 15 percent, with the asking at 19 percent.Just more than 41 percent of the dioceses and regional areas have committed to contributing the full amount in 2012, according to a list here.The budget revenue also includes a five percent draw, or dividend, on the income from the church’s approximately $215 million in unrestricted invested assets. The draw amounts to $25.5 million, compared with $27.5 million in the current triennium (line 3).In addition, the budget will draw another $4.1 million of the income from unrestricted assets as a one-time grant to pay for a new development office (line 4).The rest of the budget’s income comes from rental of 3.5 floors of the church center in New York, General Convention income from registration and exhibitor fees, event and program fees and other small income sourcesThe budget anticipates a reduction in the churchwide staff of 12 positions or 10.75 full-time equivalents. Some of those positions are currently vacant and the other reductions will be allocated by program heads and the chief operating officer, PB&F said.Canonical expenses are funded at $20.1 million, corporate at $33.9 million and program at $57.3 million. The amounts for each category in each year are specified in the budget resolution.A major new feature of the budget is $5.5 million in block grants to pay for new mission work. The committee sees the grants as a way to “create collaborative partnerships with dioceses and congregations” for which the Episcopal Church will provide seed money and/or matching grants, along with staff support and expertise, according to Lane. The precise planning of the program and grants is left to Executive Council and the church center staff, the committee said.Even though not every new program will be successful, the committee said, it urges “experimentation” with a full accounting of the results to the next convention.During their debate July 11, deputies rejected amendments to:cut the churchwide staff by 25 percent,add $500,000 to line 50 for digital communications, andadd a requirement that no committee, commission, agency or board can solicit money from outside the church for its work without the permission of Executive Council.During the short discussion in the House of Bishops, Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas said he would vote for the budget, but added that he would be remiss if he did not express his dismay about one line item.He called attention to the fact that 2013-2015 budget will give $700,000 to the Anglican Communion Office. Douglas, the church’s episcopal representative to the Anglican Consultative Council, note that the amount is 30 percent of what the ACO asks of the Episcopal Church. The church gave the ACO 50 percent, or $1.16 million, of the asked-for amount in the current budget, he said.“This runs somewhat contrary to the overtures of our support and participation in the councils and as a constituent member of the Anglican Communion and I would plead that if there is in the future renegotiations of this budget that that line item really be reconsidered,” he said.More details about the budget are here.— The Rev.

Please enter your name here By Ossa Fisher Earlier this month, the Florida Department of Education announced that Istation has been approved as an accepted alternate assessment for determining third grade promotion. The Florida Department of Education requires that providers meet the following guidelines to be approved as alternative assessments:They must demonstrate both reliability and validity.They must have completed norming studies, preferably within the last five years.They must measure grade 3 achievement in reading comprehension.“We are delighted that we can help provide a strong alternative for school districts in Florida to help identify students who qualify for third grade promotion. We believe in helping students achieve their full potential, and we are excited to deepen our partnerships with schools and districts who help accomplish this broad mission,” said Richard H. Collins, Istation Chairman and CEO.Istation assessments take less time away from instruction since teachers do not administer the assessment individually. An entire class can be assessed in all reading measures in 30–40 minutes in a computer lab setting. Individually, the subtests range from approximately 3–10 minutes. Instant scoring results and a wealth of reports are available, including Lexile measures.Florida students would have to pass at the 50th percentile or higher on Istation assessments to qualify for promotion, according to the DOE.Learn more about Istation ISIP™ ER here: http://www.istation.com/Product/EarlyReadingRead more about the announcement here: http://info.fldoe.org/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-7704/dps-2016-116.pdf The Anatomy of Fear You have entered an incorrect email address!

Meg Hemmerlehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/meg-hemmerle/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printMark Bowling at the filming of the Frogs for the Cure music video.Fighting cancer is personal for the singer/songwriter working with this year’s Frogs for the Cure. “I lost my dad April 29, 2010,” said Mark Bowling, whose song, “Fly Again,” will be featured in this year’s video. “I lost my mom nine months later — January 13, 2011 — to cancer.”“My former father-in-law, we lost him October of that year. My uncle, March of next year so it was just one after another,” Bowling said.Bowling traveled from his home in Derby, Kansas with his youngest sons, Jess, 10, and Jack, 8, to work on the recording over the Labor Day weekend. The Frogs for the Cure video, which will debut Oct. 29 during the halftime show of the football game against Texas Tech, was filmed all over Tarrant County and the TCU campus. Bowling filmed his part of the music video at Brian Kieta’s Studio in Christ Chapel Bible Church.Bowling said Catherine Montgomery-Hill, a mutual friend, introduced him to Frogs for the Cure founder Ann Louden. Since hearing the song, Louden has said it has become her theme song.“I’ve been trying to reach people affected by cancer with my songs for a while now,” Bowling said. “You know, it’s just a great opportunity to help a lot of people and Cancer Care Services is just an amazing charity.” Bowling said he wrote “Fly Again” to help one particular person.“I thought I would sell some singles and raise money for this girl who had cancer,” Bowling said. “She was 26. When I was praying for I was moved to write the song.”There was the possibility of the song reaching a broader audience. “I had hope it would,” Bowling said. “This is amazing.”Throughout Bowling’s career he has been a sign of hope for those affected by cancer. “I opened up for Collin Raye and I had 33 people come up to me after the show and tell me their stories about cancer. So it’s been pretty crazy,” he said. “We had kinda a lower-budget video and we put it out and it’s been viewed in 106 different countries. I’ve heard from people in England, Australia, Germany, Brazil…people all over the world have contacted me and thanked me for it.”Bowling has a CD coming out soon with 12 songs, half of which were written about people affected by cancer directly. “A lot of [the songs] are just to encourage people,” said Bowling.You can buy Bowling’s songs on iTunes and contact him at [email protected] or visit his website.
