No savings at 50? Here are 2 things I’d do right away

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Alan Oscroft | Saturday, 22nd February, 2020 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. No savings at 50, but want to invest for your retirement? I could make a smarty comment like “Well, cut down on what you spend and start saving then.” But I doubt that would help. Here are two things that I think will.Write it downIt’s easy to reach the end of a day not knowing where that £20 note you just broke into has gone. So my first suggestion is to keep an account of every penny you spend, for a whole month.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 know it’s hard, but it’s something I do at regular intervals. I even carry a small notebook and I write down every spend as soon I’ve made it.And if you do as I do, you can reap an additional benefit in addition to understanding your spending. Noting my spending is enough in itself to make me reduce it. I make unnecessary purchases far less often if I’m fully aware of how much I’ve spent so far each day.Now for the actual savings part. Once you have a month’s worth of spending data, you’ll be in a much better position to know what you can cut down on and what genuinely is essential.For each item, ask: “Did I pay someone to do something I could have done myself?” Coffee is one obvious one, with the UK’s spending in coffee shops breaking the £10bn barrier for the first time in 2018. I’d never pay someone £2.50 or more for something I can make myself for pennies.Open an ISAOnce saving, I’d first make sure I have a bit of cash put away for emergencies. After that, there’s a bewildering array of investment products on offer these days. But the only place for my investments is shares in UK companies, as companies doing business are the only things that generate actual new wealth.Many people think that sounds risky, but if you’re 50 then you could have close to 20 years before you retire. And over that kind of timescale, shares have a great record of beating other forms of investment. In fact, over the past century and more, UK shares have generated average annual returns of 4.9% ahead of inflation.So how do you go about it? I recommend a Stocks and Shares ISA, which will protect your gains from tax.I won’t go into the details here, as I’ve explained it all recently. But what I really want to suggest is… open it now. Sure, you might not have any cash to put in it just yet, and you’re nowhere near deciding what shares you might want to buy.Getting startedBut opening a Stocks and Shares ISA right away gives you something to look forward to. For one thing, you can log on and spend as much time as you like exploring how it all works. That should inspire you to think, ahead of time, about what shares you’ll want to go for. Generally, shares paying steady dividends are my favourites.And you can use it as a place to stash your investment cash right from day one. Did you just manage to save £20? Great, transfer £20 to your ISA right away towards your first share purchase. It will remove the temptation to spend it, and it’s surprising how it soon it can add up. 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.

FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Buying dividend stocks rather than growth stocks may sound like a strange idea to many investors. After all, dividend shares have historically been viewed as the preserve of income investors, rather than individuals who are seeking to generate growth within a portfolio.However, with many growth stocks now trading on high valuations after the recent stock market rally, I think dividend shares may offer better value for money. They could also gain in popularity as a result of a lack of income investing opportunities available elsewhere. The result could be high total returns in the coming years.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…Value opportunities among dividend stocksWhile the stock market rally has lifted the valuations of many shares, it is still possible to obtain relatively high levels of passive income from dividend stocks. In fact, around a fifth of the FTSE 100’s members offer yields in excess of 4% at the present time. This suggests that there may be a number of large-cap companies that offer good value for money. Although this does not guarantee share price growth in future, it can suggest that there is greater scope for capital appreciation.By contrast, many companies that have impressive earnings growth forecasts have risen sharply in value in the recent stock market recovery. Investors seem to have become increasingly focused on those businesses that are expected to produce rapid rises in their bottom lines. The result of this, in some cases, is a high valuation. This may limit the potential of growth stocks to deliver further share price gains, since investors may already be ‘pricing in’ their prospects.Increasing appeal of dividend sharesDividend stocks may become increasingly attractive over the coming years. Although predicting interest rates is notoriously challenging, it seems relatively likely that the days of 4%-5% interest rates are not set to return for a prolonged period of time. This may mean that some passive income investors switch from other income-producing assets, such as cash and bonds, to dividend shares due to their relatively high income return prospects.This high demand for dividend shares may mean that they offer greater return prospects than the wider stock market. Even if they match the wider stock market’s rise, they could offer the prospect of producing a high single-digit total return on an annualised basis, as per the past returns of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 over recent decades.Clearly, there is no guarantee of any future returns from any stock. The stock market may fail to match its previous capital growth rates, while dividend stocks may also struggle to deliver high total returns. However, their low valuations and potential to become more popular could mean that they offer a greater chance of producing market-beating returns in the long run.last_img read more

Apopka Remembers a Civil Rights King Today

Dr. King is honored across the country annually on the third Monday in January with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, the holiday falls close to his birthday.As chief spokesman of the movement to end racial discrimination in state and federal laws in the 1950s and 1960s, King organized several marches and peaceful protests. In 1963, he organized the famous March on Washington, which was memorialized in 2013 by President Barack Obama on its 50th anniversary.It was then that King delivered his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. A year later, on October 14, 1964, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolenceTragically, on April 4, 1968 he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee at the age of 39.Posthumously, King was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, and we observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day annually to honor his courageous work towards freedom and equality. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was erected in Washington, D.C. in 2011 with a sculpture and inscription that reads, “Out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope.” The quote is from his “I Have A Dream” speech.“That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.” – Martin Luther King* * *An Apopka Celebration Honoring Dr. KingThe 7th Annual South Apopka Ministerial Alliance MLK Day parade will begin today at the VFW Post 519 South Central Avenue at 2pm and travel south down Marvin C.

Science achievement gaps start early – in kindergarten

Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Back to School 2018By F. Chris Curran, Assistant Professor of Public Policy, University of Maryland, Baltimore County and first published on theconversation.com.The annual back-to-school season is filled with high hopes for making new friends, meeting new teachers – and, from the view of many policymakers – promoting gains in science achievement. Scientific learning and research carry substantial economic benefits.Historically, however, not all groups have excelled in science equally. Black and Hispanic individuals as well as women have been less likely to enter or persist in science-related studies or occupations.These gaps have been well-studied at the level of high school and higher education. These gaps, however, actually start much earlier.My research found that these gaps exist at the level of kindergarten. However, these gaps can also change significantly in the first two years of schooling.Large gaps in scienceIn a 2016 study, my research assistant, Ann Kellogg, and I examined the science performance of over 10,000 kindergarten students who began school in 2010. We analyzed data from a national study called the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study (ECLS-K) conducted by the federal government.The data included science achievement tests that assessed concepts in physical, life and environmental science as well as scientific inquiry. Examples of science instruction in kindergarten includes studying how plants grow, experimenting with erosion on a water table or constructing a picture of the solar system.Previous research had examined science gaps in early grades. Our study, however, looked at science gaps as early as kindergarten with newer data and better science achievement tests.Our study revealed large gaps in science achievement in kindergarten between white students and racial or ethnic minorities. And, where science gaps existed, we found that they were generally larger than the gaps in reading or mathematics achievement. However, we did not find significant gaps by gender.Achievement gaps are not stagnantOn average, black students and Hispanic students performed significantly lower than white students on the science achievement tests in kindergarten. Approximately 41 percent of black students and 49 percent of Hispanic students scored in the bottom 25 percent. In comparison, only 12 percent of white students were in this category.The difference in science achievement between black or Hispanic students and white students is roughly equivalent to what an average elementary student learns over a period of nine months between kindergarten and the end of first grade. The gaps between black, Hispanic and white students might be expected given similar gaps in mathematics and reading.What surprised us was that Asian students in our study performed significantly lower than white students in kindergarten on the science achievement test. Approximately 31 percent of Asian students scored in the bottom 25 percent on the science test. In contrast, only 12 percent of white students did so. This gap was present even though Asian students performed as well as or better than white students in mathematics and reading.Interestingly, unlike the black-white gap, the science gap between Asian and white students closed rapidly between kindergarten and the end of first grade. In fact, by the end of first grade, the gap had reduced by almost 50 percent.It’s unclear what causes this rapid decrease in the Asian-white science gap. However, what it does show is that achievement gaps are not stagnant.Prior research conducted by scholars David Quinn and North Cooc showed similar findings. By eighth grade, Asian student performance in science was equivalent to or higher than that of white students. Other researchers have also found Asian students’ performance in science increases rapidly relative to white students throughout elementary and middle school.No gender gapAdditionally, we found no difference in science achievement between boys and girls in kindergarten. A small male advantage was evident only in first grade. This too is an important finding given the documented gender gaps in the later grades of elementary school.Prior work has found that boys outperform girls in science at third grade. Similarly, resultsfrom the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) show a male advantage in science in the fourth grade.The study found no gender gaps in science during kindergarten years. Ars Electronica, CC BY-NC-NDOur work shows, however, that these gaps in later grades do not extend back to kindergarten. Instead, boys and girls appear to begin schooling on relatively equal footing when it comes to science achievement. It is only as they progress through school that the gender gap emerges.Science gaps largerFinally, we found that the kindergarten gaps by race or ethnicity tend to be larger in science than in mathematics or reading.For example, on the kindergarten achievement tests, the Hispanic-white gap was about twice as large for science as mathematics or reading. Similarly, the black-white gap was slightly larger in science than in mathematics and was about twice as large as the gap in reading.It is possible that students lagging behind in math and reading struggle even more in science as it requires the application of language and mathematics to scientific content.In sum, our findings point to the importance of the early elementary grades for equity in science achievement. We show that many gaps, such as the black-white gap, already exist when students start school. We also show, however, that these gaps can change significantly in the first two years of schooling as evidenced by the Asian-white gap and the emergence of a gender gap.What’s happening in classrooms?All this means that the early elementary years may be an appropriate point for addressing inequities in science achievement. However, science instruction has not been a high priority in the early elementary grades.Research comparing kindergarten in 1998 to that in 2010 found that teachers cover fewer science topics than before and students spend less time using science equipment.Is science instruction the problem? woodleywonderworks, CC BYFurthermore, kindergarten classrooms today are much less likely to have science or nature areas. Indeed, in kindergarten classrooms, teachers spend only about a fourth of the amount of time on science that they do on mathematics or language arts.What can we do?Our findings point to the need for increased emphasis on science in kindergarten and first grade. I believe, for example, that teachers and school leaders should look for opportunities to incorporate science concepts into reading and math lessons.Looking beyond the classroom setting, the findings of our work and that of others suggest the need to provide support to informal science learning opportunities. Visiting museums, interacting with nature and exploring novel tools all represent ways in which parents and caregivers can support early science inquiry.Science achievement gaps begin early. It is important that our policies and interventions take steps in those early years to ensure increased science achievement for all. Please enter your comment!
