Shareholders have become increasingly alarmed by new contracts, which appear to have no limit on bonuses, the ABI said.

Forget the November premium bond draw! I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks instead to make a million

Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Each month, millions of people check the premium bond draw to see if they’ve won anything. Although the odds aren’t in your favour to win a large amount above £10,000, you could still pick up a good return on a relative basis. For example, if you invested £1,000 and you won a prize of £100 one month, this represents a 10% return on your investment. Given that the downside is limited, this isn’t a bad investment.But is checking the premium bond draw each month really the best way to try and make a million? It may be a good way for smaller income amounts, but for targeting a larger vision I’d stick to FTSE 100 stocks instead.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…FTSE 100 stock potentialFrom my point of view, you’re more in control of your own destiny with FTSE 100 stocks. One could argue that premium bonds are like playing the lottery. It’s a lot of luck, without any skill needed from the investor. When investing in FTSE 100 stocks, skill is needed to be successful. This doesn’t mean it’s impossible to make money via stocks. What I’m getting at is that you can outperform a benchmark and achieve better returns from selective investing.For example, the FTSE 100 index as a whole is down 24% this year. However, take a look at some individual performers. I wrote a piece months ago praising Ocado group. The Ocado share price has almost doubled this year! I’d much prefer to pick stocks that I believe can do well, and invest. Premium bonds don’t have any element of outperformance, each bond is identical. The mathematical chances of your bond generating more income than someone else’s bond is zero. Planning to winYou can also carefully plan out exactly the steps needed to reach the million mark, and work towards that. For example, I can look at historical performance of the FTSE 100 and use it as a gauge of future potential. History doesn’t always repeat itself, but over several decades it’s clear the broad direction of the stock market has been higher. Let’s say I invest and pick up an average return of 8% per year. If I invested £1,000 a month with this return, I’d reach the million mark after around 28 years. For someone in their 30s, this is a perfect timeline to enjoy the funds for retirement.This approach gives you a better plan on trying to make a million instead of premium bonds. In the November premium bond draw, someone did win a million. But they didn’t plan on that the same way we planned the above expenditure to achieve the returns needed. You could wait 28 years and end up nowhere near a million with the premium bonds by itself. To me, that’s simply not smart investing.Looking for the bigger visionYou may have won a decent prize in the November premium bond draw. I’m happy about this, and hope to do the same. There’s a place in an investment portfolio for bonds. However, if I’m wanting to target big returns, I feel I need to be invested in stocks.

Determining Optimum Row Width for Corn Complex

first_img DuPont Pioneer notes most corn acres in the U.S. and Canada – 85-percent – are currently planted in 30-inch rows. Narrow row spacing of less than 30-inches is used on fewer than five-percent of corn acres. Regional adoption of narrow rows varies widely. The highest adoption rate is in the northern Corn Belt states of Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Dakotas. Over the years – according to DuPont Pioneer – research on narrow row corn has produced variable results – repeatedly showing it’s a very complex issue with many interacting factors. DuPont Pioneer research conducted between 1991 and 2010 showed an average yield advantage of 2.7-percent with narrow or twin rows in the northern Corn Belt states compared to a one-percent advantage across studies in the central Corn Belt. The accumulated body of DuPont Pioneer and university research conducted over the past 20 years does not indicate that the current 30-inch row spacing is limiting to corn productivity for most of the Corn Belt. DuPont Pioneer says the research also provides little evidence to suggest narrow rows will consistently increase yield relative to 30-inch rows on productive soils under current agronomic practices.More information on row spacing is available by viewing DuPont Pioneer Crop Insights online.

Old Stagers: Dramatic Irony

first_imgDramatic irony is the tired old cry of ‘it’s behind you’ in a pantomime; it’s Romeo stabbing himself needlessly next to his sleeping lover; it’s even that rather irritating individual who insists on telling you what happens in the next act in a loud voice – most likely whilst gorging himself on some godawful greasy snack at the dramatic climax.The fact that the audience knows something the characters don’t seems problematic; the audience can no longer enjoy discovering new information through the plot. However, dramatic irony cranks up the tension more effectively than telling an English tutor that you quite enjoyed The Da Vinci Code, actually. This is because knowing vital information about the play makes us all the more anxious about those on stage – wanting to shout ‘it’s a trap!’ or ‘he’s lying!’ to dramatic characters who are in the dark. Think about horror films; you sit on the edge of your seat, ready to jump at any moment, biting your nails as the attractive/minority/unnamed peripheral character does something very, very stupid. The audience already knows what will happen; it is this that creates the tension in the first place.Dramatic irony is employed in almost every play written in the English language: from Jonson’s Volpone to Stoppard’s The Real Thing. The effect created by dramatic irony is different in each case. In Volpone, the audience are titillated by the possibility of Volpone’s discovery, and simply await comedic downfall. In Stoppard’s play, the audience is subjected to something much less light-hearted, waiting for the imminent discovery of an affair and the destruction of two marriages. In both plays though, the audience’s attention is focused on how and when these things will happen.This focus on the how and the why was of huge importance to Brecht. To convey the political and social messages of his plays, he wanted the audience to think critically about what was happening on stage. To prevent them being overly drawn into the plot, placards would be placed at the front of the stage stating the name and location of the scene; there would also usually be narration at the beginning of a scene stating exactly what would happen.Dramatic irony extends the notion of art mirroring life; it isn’t only present on the stage. Dramatic irony in the theatre works on the same principles as it does in real life; tension stems from being privy to information that someone else is not. Perhaps it really is true that ‘All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players.’ Then again, perhaps it isn’t. Perhaps you know something I don’t.By Ryan Hockinglast_img read more
