I’d buy crashing FTSE 100 shares in an ISA today to beat the State Pension

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’d buy crashing FTSE 100 shares in an ISA today to beat the State Pension “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The FTSE 100’s recent crash may cause some investors to invest in less risky assets to build their retirement nest eggs. The index has fallen by as much as 35% this year, which could be detrimental to your retirement plans in the short run.However, the FTSE 100 could deliver a strong recovery in the coming years. In doing so, it may improve your retirement prospects. And it could help you to overcome what is likely to be an inadequate State Pension.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…Recovery potentialThe FTSE 100’s recovery potential may not seem to be especially high at the present time. Sadly, the number of coronavirus cases continues to rise. And equally sadly, the economic impact of the outbreak could prove to be high. The FTSE 100’s members face challenging trading conditions that hamper their ability to generate improving levels of profitability.However, the FTSE 100 has faced challenging economic periods in its past. The most notable recent example is the global financial crisis. This occurred over a decade ago and the FTSE 100 managed to make a full recovery. Certainly, there were times during the financial crisis when it seemed as though the index would never trade at close to 7,000 points again. But with low interest rates and quantitative easing measures, the index was able to post a new record high.In the coming years, the FTSE 100 is very likely to once again produce strong returns. As such, investors who have a long time horizon may wish to capitalise on the index’s cyclicality. How so? Through buying a diverse range of shares today.State Pension prospectsBuying FTSE 100 shares today could be even more worthwhile due to the prospects for the State Pension. The State Pension age is expected to rise to 68 in the long run, while the annual payment currently amounts to just £9,110 for the 2020/21 tax year. This is around a third of the average annual wage in the UK, and is unlikely to be a sufficient amount of money to provide financial freedom for most retirees.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy a range of FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA. Doing so means you are able to potentially benefit from the index’s recovery over the long run in a tax-efficient account. The index also has a strong track record of delivering dividend growth that is ahead of inflation. Since it currently yields around 6%, its potential to produce a generous passive income by the time you retire could be relatively high.As such, while further FTSE 100 declines cannot be ruled out in the short run, building a retirement nest egg at the present time could help you to overcome the inadequate State Pension. This could enable you to enjoy greater financial freedom in older age. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Please enter your email address here Reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate May 10, 2020 at 7:52 pm Ahhhhh, yes, monkey memories are etched into everyone’s mind aren’t they? Somehow we shove them into the back of the closet and hope they stay put. We only want to cherish the best of thoughts. But, when we really let our mind wander we see how all memories make us into what we have become. Without all of them, we would just be a partial person.Let’s hold dear the fact that we have had opportunities to make memories throughout our lives…AND that we still have the capability to remember them.That in itself, is a true blessing.Thanks Chuck!God bless and protect us all. Memories are encased in bubbles of emotions….high emotions related to good and bad (primarily trauma related), prevent the brain from letting go and processing. Thanks God for my memories wrapped in Love….my father, my grandparents…..will live in those memories for the rest of my days! InspirationBy Charles Towne                        MEMORY: Something remembered from the past; a recollection; the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. (Webster)Memories are funny things.There are good memories, lots of good memories in a lifetime that we love to recall, retell, and long to relive… at least in our heads. And there are not-so-good memories, the ones that would best be forgotten. (Except, people being people with their own stash of memories, tend to remember things about you that you wish they didn’t!)And then there are those memories that nobody wants. Like this pandemic. This is a memory nobody is going to look back on with fondness. Quite the opposite. In regards to this damnable thing that is dragging its slimy presence through our streets, we will wish that our forgetter was better than our rememberer.But, even though this memory won’t likely be a good one, we learn from our memories… don’t we? And the learning affects the kind of memories we’ll make going forward, and therefore affect what we will remember after… that will then look different than the memories we would have had, before…if we hadn’t learned from the first set of memories. (Confused yet?)Memories affect everything!When you think about it… I mean, when you get right down to it… life is made up of memories. And if that is the case… if so much is built on our memories, good and bad… I’ve gotta ask:What the dickens are memories made of?!Are they made of the stuff of clouds?  Nah, I don’t reckon that could be the case. But just what are they?  What sort of molecules are memories made of?  And if not molecules, then what?We are told that everything is made of molecules, even gas. But how can that be?  I can see you, and yet I can’t see a molecule. And if I can’t see a molecule, I shouldn’t be able to see you… right?  But I CAN see you… I think… maybe…?Maybe they are composed of a mysterious, noncombustible gas. Which would be a good thing, the noncombustible part especially. Otherwise you might be sitting there in the restaurant with your spouse, peacefully eating dinner when, KABOOM! You have a memory and your head explodes.  Embarrassing, right?! Not to mention fatal. Definitely noncombustible gas.Some memories are wild, some are domesticated, but none are housebroken. They are all apt to make a mess now and then, because no two people look at any memory in the same way… which can get you into trouble.Maybe memories are more like monkeys, now that I think of it. Monkeys that don’t like to be caged.Many years ago a monkey moved into my mother’s house.  It was just one of your generic, nondescript monkeys… until the day it went stark-raving-bonkers-crazy MAD and evicted mama and two of my sibs from the house! The sheriff was called and the monkey – that cute berserk monkey – went to wherever it is berserk monkeys go when the sheriff is called… and peace finally reigned again.There are times when the monkeys of our minds – our thoughts – run amok and cause us all sort of problems. Like monkeys on the loose. Especially the kind of monkey-thoughts we really wish weren’t there at all. Like those ugly, unwanted memories that destroy our self esteem and leave us feeling unworthy of love and feeling less than adequate. I reckon that may be the reason there is so much madness in the world. Monkey-memories getting out and wreaking havoc on us.I wonder if maybe God knew this would happen sometimes.Maybe that’s why He made sure some verses were penned to keep us focused on better truths, to help us make better memories… and therefore live better lives that we would want to remember. Verses that, like the good sheriff above who saved my mama, saves us too and allows peace to reign again. Verses like,Psalms 19:14, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my mind be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.”And Philippians 4:18 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.And throughout the Bible, our Papa God counters our mad monkey-thoughts with the truths of His heart, of His own thoughts and memories he has of us. Psalms 139 comes to mind (through these mysterious memories of mine) where it says He “knows” us (v1) and that we are “wonderfully made” (v14). John 3:16 says that he “loves” us. In Isaiah He calls us “precious” (43:4), and “treasured” (Deut 7:6), and says we are His “workmanship”, which is correctly translated as His “poem” (Eph. 2:10)! God’s poem!!And even when we mess up and create monkey-memories of our own – sometimes by accident, and sometimes on purpose – you know the ones I’m talking about, the ones we live to regret when we remember them – even when we do this, our wonderful Papa God promises to forget them! He forgives us when we ask, and forgets them. Papa God, who can do anything with His memories, promises He will forget our sins, and more than that, He tells us that He will cast our sins… our mistakes, our goof-ups… into the depths of the sea, beyond even His recall, and remember them no more. That is wonderful, don’t you think?Memories are funny things.But with Papa God, even the mysterious, molecular, monkey-kind of memories can be transformed to some of the sweetest ones you’d ever wish to have.Dear Papa God, thank you for creating us the way you have with rational thought (though some reading this may wonder about the whole rational thought thing, lol). Thank you for enabling us to believe in molecules, even though we can’t see them (I think that is called science-based faith, isn’t it?). Thank you Papa for giving us the ability to believe in your love, and your goodness, in your mercy, and healing power. Thank you for gifting us with the ability to see that same potential for goodness in your children… and… in ourselves too, even though it might take us a little more time to see what you see. Thank you Papa God, for all of it. In Jesus’ Holy name I ask it, Amen charles towne May 10, 2020 at 8:40 am Dear CSG, YES, and it is an absolute fact that so often those ugly, vicious “Mad Monkey Memories” come awake at the most inopportune times, but as inconvenient as they may be we do learn from them don’t we? May God Bless you always, Chaz May 10, 2020 at 1:34 pm May 15, 2020 at 2:23 pm May 11, 2020 at 6:34 pm May 11, 2020 at 5:55 pm Thank God for memories. Yes, there are those mad-monkey versions that are best left repressed but you have to learn to take the good with the not so good. When one of those mad-monkey memories resurrects itself it may be just what is needed to keep from repeating a not so wise decision. I remember several conversations at my 50th high school reunion last year that began with “hey, do you remember when …” and oh what fun conversations ensued. Keep them coming Chuck and keep us thinking beyond ourselves. Stay safe my friend. charles towne Don, you are greatly blessed to have had that special time. I like that you referred to Betty as your “special” friend, because in truth that is what she was. The word tells us that ‘it is not good for man to be alone” Even thought we don’t have our wives with us now but that it is a temporary situation a blessed truth. Bless you my friend, Chaz Richard May 12, 2020 at 1:35 am Leo Reply Mike, I am so very appreciative of you all. You keep me growing, and becoming better than I could ever be on my own. I like the idea of putting a name to those negative, destructive, debilitating, MAD MONKEY MEMORIES! None of us can achieve our full potential on our own, no, it takes all of us to make one of us to the fullness of perfection that Papa God calls us to. When I consider all of the comments, all of the responses, all of the constructive thought provoking ideas you all plant I am overwhelmed. God bless you all, Chaz May 15, 2020 at 7:00 pm charles towne charles towne Reply charles towne Herbert, my goal is to give all something to think about as well as bring pleasure o our troubled times. Bless you and yours always chaz Ah, my friend, I do love when you delve into science and/or philosophy! As a scientist you are an amazingly skilled nature writer!Let me begin, first everything is NOT made of molecules, only compound substances are, like water, steel,the smell of rotting eggs! I believe you meant atoms, but then, what are atoms made of? In the final analysis it is all made of energy and memory is tiny packets of energy called quanta, perceived by our senses and sent to our brains where the energy packets are encoded and stored in our neural cells for later retrieval. This marvelous system was designed by a power much greater than we can even imagine now!Second, the monkeys! I am sure you have heard about the room full of monkeys and typewriters eventually producing Shakespeare’s plays but that is a mathematical concept, your memory monkeys are a philosophical one! I believe there is truth in your construct but maybe of a different sort. Those destructive faces were put onto our memories by a force that wishes us nothing good. The evil one has spent millennia whispering in our ears until we unconsciously believe him. I think our best weapon here is faith and the certainty of God’s love for us. He sent his only son to die for us so we must be worth quite a bit!Sorry this is so long but I have been cooped up for a while now!Keep up the good work and may all the blessings of heaven be yours! Mike McFadden Wow Charlitos !!! Memories … You said that and it reminds me my childhood in my GrandPa’s Farms : riding horses, milking cows, playing w/pigs, in the pool even dressed cowboys and back to ride horses or the tractor … Everywhere as wilds boys !!!Memories is like albums that move you to those beautiful moments.

Some of us have very few good memories, far more mad monkey memories than are reasonable!

The Gravity Project convenes a nationwide collaborative of subject matter experts to develop national standards for SDOH data collected and exchanged in electronic record systems. The initiative brings together a diverse community to identify and review terminologies, conduct a gap analysis, and develop recommendations to address the gaps using nationally recognized data standards. Initially, the project focused on the domains of food insecurity, housing insecurity (including housing instability, homelessness, and housing quality), and transportation insecurity. In partnership with CyncHealth, Gravity is expanding to additional domains such as financial strain, material hardship, stress, and social isolation, as well as demographic attributes. Standardized codes better enable the use of data for patient care, as well as understanding current gaps in services or needs in communities. There is growing recognition across healthcare clinicians of the importance to capture and access data on the needs of social care. In August 2019, the Gravity Project became an HL7® Fast Health Interoperability Resource Accelerator (FHIR®) Project with the goal to accelerate the development, testing, and adoption of the FHIR specification for SDOH data exchange. FHIR is a nationwide standard for certified health IT and API interoperability. “CyncHealth is proud to partner with the Gravity Project in this important domain of healthcare interoperability,” said Jaime Bland, CyncHealth President and CEO. “Creating better data to address social needs helps reduce barriers and improve access to care, which ultimately improves the health of our communities.” The Gravity Project’s efforts closely align with the work CyncHealth is doing through Unite Nebraska, a community information exchange. Partners in the exchange are connected through a shared technology platform, Unite Us, which enables them to send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities. Unite Nebraska is part of a groundbreaking multi-state initiative that includes Nebraska and six other states across the central region, with funding support through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Unite Us also is involved with the Gravity Project and supports the mission to standardize SDOH data and create a common language for the industry to connect health and social care. “CyncHealth’s participation in the Gravity Project is ideal in more than one way,” said Taylor Justice, President and Co-founder of Unite Us. “We know the Gravity Project will benefit from CyncHealth’s visionary leadership and expertise in cross-sector collaboration. And we’re eager to support CyncHealth, CyncHealth’s customers, and other Gravity Project partners in the demonstration and practical application of these concepts to models of care, payment, interoperability, and analytics, and in turn, share these learnings with the industry,” Justice added. Two CyncHealth leaders serve on the Gravity Project’s advisory committees: Joy Doll, Chief Academic Program Officer for the Nebraska Healthcare Collaborative and Vice President, Academic Programs, NEHII Shared Services; and Naresh Sundar Rajan, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Technology & Operations. “We are excited to partner with CyncHealth on advancing the work of the Gravity Project and accelerating the development of nationally recognized interoperability standards for social determinants of health. The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the need to address health disparities and individual’s social needs,” said Evelyn Gallego, CEO of EMI Advisors LLC and Program Manager for the Gravity Project. “Now more than ever, health information exchange entities like CyncHealth play a critical role in facilitating interoperable data exchange between clinical settings that may first identify the social need and community-based organizations that help to address the social need.” About the Gravity Project Initiated by the Social Interventions Research & Evaluations Network (SIREN), with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and in partnership with EMI Advisors LLC, the Gravity Project creates consensus-driven standards that address social care in clinical settings, integrate SDOH data into a digital infrastructure, and enable the collecting and exchanging of individual-level SDOH data across and in between clinical and community-based organizations. Follow the Gravity Project on LinkedIn and Twitter. About CyncHealth (NEHII is now CyncHealth) CyncHealth’s mission is to bring trust and value to health information technology by creating solutions for moving health data forward.
