Many of us dream of making a million, but that’s as far as it goes. Most of us resign ourselves to the fact it’s not an easy achievement and make do with what we have. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There’s one tried and tested way to make a million, and that’s through stock market investing and the power of compound interest. The wrath of the pandemic has left quality businesses severely battered. This means cheap UK shares are available to purchase and an opportunity to secure my financial future awaits.Warren Buffett leads by exampleBillionaire investor Warren Buffett is famed for his investing prowess and lifelong commitment to the capital markets. He started when he was a boy and has become the world’s most famous — and arguably most successful — investor. His approach is to buy and hold stocks for years. By purchasing shares in a quality company, he can watch his investment grow as the company does. This technique has worked well for Buffett and many others like him who have followed his lead. Personally, I think it’s a great approach and one that I aim to emulate with my financial goal to make a million.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…I’d buy cheap shares todayIn the UK, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 contain a fantastic selection of top-quality companies that are enduring a tough time. However, Warren Buffett has long since advocated buying shares when good companies are struggling. That’s because it presents a fantastic opportunity to buy cheap shares and kick-start the route to making a million.I think it’s worth heeding Buffett’s advice and agree that 2020 has exposed many cheap UK shares worth buying for the decade ahead. While we’re still in uncertain territory, with new Covid-19 strains arriving and restrictions back in place, this can’t last forever.The vaccine rollout is already under way, and more countries are getting on board. The UK hopes to approve further vaccines in the coming weeks, which should rapidly speed up recovery. Meanwhile, governments globally have committed to helping citizens and businesses get back on their feet. This comes at significant cost to central bank balance sheets, but means low interest rates are likely to be the norm for several years to come.While companies have reduced staff and cut dividends in 2020, the savvy ones will be in much better shape in the future. This could mean they make a strong recovery in the years ahead, particularly if companies reinvest their excess cash in growing their businesses.Make a million through compoundingThe reason it’s possible to make a million through buying shares and holding them has much to do with the power of compounding. For example, imagine I buy 100 shares at a total cost of £7,200 today. Then I earn an effective annual interest rate of 7% on these stocks and top up my investment with another £360 a month. I’d make over a million in 40 years. That equates to personal deposits of £180k and over £822k in interest earned during this time.The pandemic has halted economic growth and damaged much of what we take for granted. As we head into 2021, we’re unsure of what to expect. However, if we have cash to spare and time to commit to investing, this could be a great chance to get on the road to making a million.

Mother of 13-year-old shark attack victim says he got ‘very, very lucky’

first_imgABC News(SAN DIEGO) — Keane Webre-Hayes is still laid up in a hospital bed two days after he was attacked by a shark off a San Diego beach, but he’s already making plans to get back in the ocean.Hayes’ mother, Ellie, spoke at a press conference on Monday evening and said her son is slowly recovering from serious bite wounds to his upper back, left arm and shoulder and left side of his face.“Today someone brought him a mask and a snorkel, and he feels pretty determined in this moment he is going to get back out there,” Ellie Hayes said. “He said, ‘Mom the chances are so much more slim for a second bite.’”The 13-year-old was swimming at Beacon’s Beach and looking for lobsters in Leucadia, California, just north of San Diego, when he was attacked by the shark, authorities said. Webre-Hayes, who was in water about 9 feet deep, was rushed to shore by lifeguards and good Samaritans and eventually airlifted to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, where his mother spoke Monday.“We got blessed on Sunday — we got very, very lucky. We know it and we are thankful,” Ellie said. “Keane is really special. … He is very brave, very strong, athletic. I don’t know. He’s a warrior; I didn’t know he was that good of a swimmer, so I’m really proud of him.”Keane was listed in critical condition Sunday and underwent immediate surgery after arriving by helicopter at the hospital. Dr. Tim Fairbanks, the hospital’s chief of pediatric surgery, said Monday he’s been upgraded to serious condition.“It has been an honor to take care of Keane and his family during this time, and I also want to let you know our work is not done yet,” Fairbanks said. “We are thrilled to be where we are right now, but we still got to get him across the finish line, and get him all the way better.”Doctors shared a photo of a smiling Keane in his hospital bed, with his left shoulder and left side of his face showing the fresh wounds caused by the shark’s bite.His mother thanked three men who were in a kayak nearby when her son was attacked and helped to get him to shore.“Thank you so much,” she offered the good Samaritans. “Keane has been asking for them. I just want to say ‘thank you’ to all three of them. Without what they did, we would be having a whole different scenario. Keane has been asking for them and just real quick his eyes haven’t welled up until he asked for the people who saved his life.”The family said they did not want to discuss the full extent of Keane’s injuries, but they do expect him to make a good recovery, even if the scars will remain. Doctors emphasized that Keane said he was thankful all of his limbs were in tact.“I am going to honor their wishes … what we will and wont go over; it was a very large shark bite, very deep down through the chest through the muscles,” Fairbanks said. “We’re not going to go into much more details than that. It was a very large injury.”“I think it is a miracle, I think Keane is a miracle,” his mother said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Rightmove removes listing for garden shed advertised as £160,000 one-bed flat

If the property is liveable, and the agent has the contract to sell the property, it is legal. However, this property has now been removed, as it is no longer on the market.”On the marketBut the same property remains on the market. It’s listed by a property trading and auction platform on Zoopla.The listing’s external image appears to show a garden shed that has been converted into ‘liveable’ accommodation. The Zoopla ad also lists the property as having a bathroom, a single bedroom and a private garden and that it was originally due to be auctioned on 12th December.Records at the London Borough of Lambeth cast doubt on this claimed status. Its Assistant Director of Planning Rob Bristow last month refused permission for the structure to be converted from B8 storage to C3 residential.garden shed Rightmove January 3, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
