Approved Personal Blogs / 13 More 'Smart Cities' Chosen As Centre Pledges Rs 30,299 Crore Boost
« Last post by ThadLash36 on July 14, 2019, 04:50:20 AM »
The government has confirmed that 13 more cities will be developed under the Centre's 'Smart City Mission'. Lucknow in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh tops the list, followed by Warangal in Telangana, and Dharmashala in Himachal Pradesh. Twenty-three cities which failed to make the grade back in January participated in the 'Fast Track Competition', the results of which were announced by Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday. Of these 23 cities, only 13 qualified for the smart city projects through the fresh competition. The 13 cities selected in the Fast Track Competition have proposed a total investment of Rs 30,229 crore. With this, the investment proposed by 33 cities, including the 20 cities announced in January, under the smart city plans has touched the Rs 80,789 crore mark, Naidu said at a press conference.


Guaranteed water and power supply, sanitation and solid waste management systems, efficient urban mobility and public transportation, IT connectivity, e-governance and citizen participation are some of the highlights of the smart city project. Also, one out of Meerut and Rai Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, and either Jammu or Srinagar in J I do really, either positive or negative. It will help me to make necessary fine tuning on our mission. If you have a story worth sharing to our youth, get in touch with us.


Spending three months each year in India for the past decade has given Mary and Brian Edwards a clear view of the way the world is changing. As well as regular visits to India, where they use an apartment in Goa to explore the rest of the country, they have travelled to China, Brazil and North Africa. The couple have seen with their own eyes the impact of growing wealth in emerging economies, and that has influenced the way they invest. Brian, 62, a retired bank manager, says: _Britain is a small island and while we have some great companies based here, you realise there is tremendous scope for firms to grow in other parts of the world. _It is not easy for an ordinary investor like me to hold shares directly overseas. Even if I could pick them, there are too many tax, logistical and stockbroking complications,_ he says.


Instead, the couple, from Fleet, Hampshire, invest through collective investment funds. These are run by managers who research and select investments for you. Their holdings include shares in investment trusts Monks and Scottish Mortgage - both global funds - and Pacific Horizon, which specialises in the Asia-Pacific region. All three are run by Edinburgh-based Baillie Gifford. _We like this international dimension to our savings,_ says Brian. The couple are not alone in thinking internationally. Growing numbers of savers are broadening their investment horizons as they search for both income and capital growth across the world. While most advisers have long recommended some exposure to overseas markets, the tempo has increased.


Ben Willis, head of research at investment adviser Whitechurch Securities in Bristol, says: _Ten years ago, perhaps 60 to 80 per cent of the average portfolio we recommend to clients would be invested in Britain. _Now that figure is more like 40 per cent. Darius McDermott, who runs London-based investment broker Chelsea Financial Services, says diversification of returns is one key reason investors should look overseas. _If you just invest in Britain your fortunes are linked to the London stock market and to a lesser extent the British economy. But we all know it is better not to have all your eggs in one basket,_ he says. _Some people think they might be adding to investment risk by looking overseas.


Another reason to look abroad is to access markets or businesses you cannot find in Britain. Financial Mail asked top fund managers to highlight some of their most distinct overseas holdings. Savers can choose investment funds aimed at specific regions such as Asia, Europe or Latin America. Alternatively, they can put their faith in funds where the managers can buy what they think are the best companies anywhere in the world. Holding these investments in an Isa protects you from further income tax and capital gains. McDermott agrees: _There is a genuine appetite from investors for funds that provide an income from international investments. Lots of savers already hold equity income funds investing in Britain, but these invest in a narrow range of companies. Clients see the attractions of getting their income from a wider range of sources. _Over the next ten years I believe we_ll see continued appreciation of Asian currencies against sterling. Engineer Keith Cobley, 57, is hoping his global investments will give his income a lift in retirement. Keith lives in Belper, Derbyshire, with his wife, Tereni Onufryk-Cobley, 53, and works for aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce. He has been investing hard for almost 20 years, gradually building up a holding of funds worth more than

Approved Personal Blogs / How To Select Fishing Tackle For Summer Fishing..
« Last post by TPPEssie4 on July 09, 2019, 07:39:25 PM »
After discussing the importance of choosing the right fishing rod and bait for summer angling; now we will focus on the selection of fishing line and float. Summer fish restore their energy and physical strength from after long time hibernation in winter and spring. They will swim fast and have a large force. Generally speaking, its strength is up to 4-5 times of the fish body weight. Thus summer fishing line shall be thicker than that of spring. 3 fishing line is recommended. Specific number shall be varied with the fishing specifies. 3 fishing line with the lead line one number smaller than the main line. 4 line shall be preferred. Based on the living water level, fish can basically be divided into bottom level fish, middle level fish and upper level fish. Crucian and carp belong to bottom fish type. Chub, bighead carp and grass carp belong to the upper layer fish. Some other small fishes such as white fish, hooksnout carp are in the classification of middle level fish. The selection of fishing float is closed related to the fish type. Carp fish is suitable for bottom fishing type. Some fish will change swimming water. In a pond where there are lots of fish, some of the fish may float to breath and look for food. Under such occasion, the fishing bobber shall be changed accordingly.

Media captionFrench and British fishing fleets have come to blows over when they can catch scallops French and British fishermen have clashed in the English Channel in an escalating battle over scallops. About 40 French boats tried to stop five larger British boats from fishing 12 nautical miles (22km) off the Normandy coast, in the Bay of Seine. Fishing boats collided and stones were thrown, but no-one was injured. UK boats are entitled to fish in the scallop-rich area, but their presence has angered the French, who accuse the British of depleting shellfish stocks. Now UK fishermen are demanding government protection, while the French bewail the loss of a "primary resource". The French boats gathered overnight on Monday in protest against so-called British "pillaging". Dimitri Rogoff, who heads the Normandy fishing committee.


Scallop wars: Could Brexit calm troubled waters? The British were unable to match the local flotilla for numbers and were ultimately chased away. Two British boats, Golden Promise and Joanna C, returned to Brixham harbour with damaged windows. The crews alleged they had been were surrounded and had rocks and metal shackles thrown at them. A video on French media showed a Scottish scallop dredger, the Honeybourne 3, colliding with French vessels. Why has it all blown up now? Tension has rumbled for 15 years, but in the past five years a deal has prevailed - larger British boats stayed out of the area in exchange for more fishing rights. British boats can gather scallops year-round, but French law restricts the scallop fishing season to between 1 October and 15 May. He's fully entitled to be there. UK vessels can enter that French zone, it's not illegal. Appeals for calm were issued by Britain's National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations, which said some boats had been filmed manoeuvring dangerously.

Christian Topics / Faith: Will you open the door?
« Last post by chrisx2600 on July 04, 2019, 09:42:28 AM »
Faith and Works

There has been alot of controversy amongst us about this topic.  Perhaps what we must do is to realize that these both go "hand in hand".  We know per the Scriptures that we are saved by grace through faith and not through works.  There is nothing we can boast/brag about in this. (https://biblehub.com/ephesians/2-8.htm

Therefore this is not the issue.  What about after we are saved?  How does this work then?  What about this passage of Scripture (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+2%3A14-26&version=NKJV Yes, this is true.  So, how do we apply both? 

Imagine if you will about a door in front of you.  Behind that door you hear God saying, "There are good things behind that door".  You answer, "Yes, God!  I believe there are good things behind that door!"  You, keep repeating the same response over and over again.  "Yes, Wonderful things behind that door!"  "Wow such amazing things are there!" 

Now here is the question.  How can we realize those good things behind that door, until we actually reach out and open the door

This is an example of faith and works working together.

Blessings Very Richly
