Most investors will have seen plenty of news in recent months that dividends are under pressure. Even at investment trusts there’s pressure on the shareholder rewards because so many companies are scrapping or cutting their dividends. Yet, trusts remain one of the more reliable ways to access a dividend payment, often quarterly. Many also offer the potential for growth of your investment as well. Here are two that I’d buy for my portfolio.The trust that runs against the packScottish Investment Trust (LSE: SCIN) is one such investment trust. The contrarian approach of the managers means the trust is risky but has plenty of potential for growth.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…The trust has massively upped its stake in gold, with the top holdings including Newmont and Barrick Gold. Top holdings from the UK include defensive shares such as United Utilities, GlaxoSmithKline, and Tesco. If you think difficult times lie ahead then this could be a good trust to own.In a blog in June, the manager said: “Governments now seem determined to create growth and, we suspect, will show increasingly greater tolerance for inflation. This would be a favourable backdrop for a contrarian investor.”A dividend yield of 3% is steady if unspectacular. In these challenging times, I’d see that as a win if it can be sustained.I also think there’s a margin of safety in buying the shares right now, as they are trading at a discount of around 11% to net asset value. The shares seem to have the potential to provide both income and growth.A very different type of trustBaillie Gifford US Growth Trust (LSE: USA) is a very different kettle of fish. Managed by Baillie Gifford – an investment outfit that is a big backer of Tesla – it unsurprisingly focuses on highly rated US stocks. It also has a strong tech slant to it.Top holdings currently include the likes of Shopify, Amazon, Tesla, and Wayfair. Amazon’s price-to-earnings is over 100, which is astronomical, but it would be brave to bet against the shares right now and against the company continuing to grow. This is why I think investors are piling directly into the shares and also into trusts and funds that are holders of the shares. Technology has been one of the winners from the pandemic.The Baillie Gifford US Growth Trust’s share price reflects this excitement, so it’s hardly a hidden gem. So far this year, the shares have risen by 60%. I think they could go further. The shares don’t pay a dividend and trade at a premium to the net asset value, so in some ways are riskier for investors. To invest you’d need to be confident that US tech companies will keep growing strongly.Scottish and Baillie Gifford US Growth Trust are very different trusts in many ways, but I think they complement each other well. The manager styles are complete contrasts, and yet both have done well since the stock market lows of March. As such I think both these investment trusts are ideal for growth.last_img read more

Why Do We Grow All This Corn?

first_img By Gary Truitt – Sep 29, 2013 Previous articleFall Burndown has its Spring BenefitsNext articleIndiana FFA 2013 Truck Stampede Winner Announced Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Why Do We Grow All This Corn? Facebook Twitter SHARE Combine harvesting cornAs the combines roll across millions of acres of farmland in the US this time of year, hundreds of millions of non-farm consumers drive by on interstates and county roads and ask, “Why do we grow all this corn?” It is a logical question when you have no idea what you are looking at and have no idea how the farm economy impacts your daily life.  Research has shown that a large number of those motorists believe the corn they see flying past their windows is actually sweet corn, or popcorn, or canned corn, or corn oil.  Some believe the corn they see is being used to make ethanol, while others know it is for livestock feed. Of course, to a certain extent, they are all correct — although the actual percentages in each category would surprise most. Harvest represents an opportunity to take advantage of people’s curiosity and provide some education about corn.According to the National Corn Growers Association, the average American consumes 25 pounds of corn per year. When consumers think of corn consumption, they tend to think of corn products they know such as sweet corn, popcorn, corn flakes, or corn oil.  Corn, however, can be found in a wide variety of food products that do not have corn in their name. Sixty-two percent of a kernel of dent corn is starch which makes it ideal for a variety of industrial uses including carpeting, sandpaper, glue, shoe polish, fireworks, and tires.  Less than 20% of the kernel is protein and fiber and only 3.8% oil — the parts most used for food.Corn is king in the US; it is the largest crop grown by American farmers and makes the US the world leader in corn production, accounting for 32% of all the corn grown in the world.  Why we grow so much corn (about 87 million acres each year) is because we can.  As Dr. Bob Thompson points out, the US is the only place in the world that has the climate, soil, water, and topography to produce corn in the amounts we do.   And it is a good thing we do because, without this level of production, the world — including the US — would be a hungrier place. About 200 million bushels of corn are used to produce food products, about 400 million bushels go into producing corn sweeteners, 135 million bushels for beverages and alcohol, just under 2 billion bushels for feeding beef animals, 1.5 billion to feed chickens, and about a billion bushels for producing pork.Being the biggest crop, corn has become the target for those who oppose modern agriculture. The biotechnology bashers are especially critical of corn since 82% of the corn produced in the US is GMO corn. What the fear mongers fail to mention is that, of that 82%,  more than half (52%) is stacked trait hybrids which means they have a natural resistance to disease and insects. This means a farmer has to use less, or in some cases no, fungicides and insecticides on his crop.   In short, biotech corn which has NO proven ill effects is actually more environmentally friendly than non-GMO corn.Anti-ethanol advocates also like to pick on corn. They thrust with a two pronged argument: that too much good food producing corn is being used for fuel, and that ethanol is driving up the cost of corn and, thus, food.  Despite the fact both of these charges have been disproven time after time, they still get quoted by the media and circulated on the internet with regularity.  Corn used in ethanol production peaked in 2010 and has been declining ever since. About 4.5 billion bushels of corn was used for ethanol in 2012.  But that is only part of the story, a large percentage of that corn was returned to the food chain in the form of by-products produced after the ethanol process is complete. Ethanol has also kept gasoline prices lower than they would have been otherwise. And, corn prices have been cut in half in 2013, so the grocers will have to find someone else to blame for their continued high food prices.Next time someone asks “Why do we grow all this corn?” just give them the facts.  If, however, you are too busy harvesting this $80 billion crop, give them a copy of this article and tell them to drive to their local fast food outlet in their car on tires and fuel that contain corn, sit in a plastic chair made from corn, and eat a hamburger made from corn fed beef while drinking a soft drink made with corn sweetener, and read this article on why we grow so much corn.By Gary Truitt Home Commentary Why Do We Grow All This Corn?

‘More Than a Word’ screening addresses Native American based mascots

first_imgCarolina Olivares Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Facebook Carolina is a journalism major with a minor in Spanish. She grew up in Houston, Texas so it’s safe to say you can hear her cheering on Houston sports team, EXCEPT the Texans. She throws up the X for the Dallas Cowboys. She can’t start her day without coffee and when she’s not reporting you can find her working out or spending time with friends. printThe filmmakers of “More Than a Word” once dreamed of playing hockey for North Dakota University.John Little, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, said he was an avid fan until his mother took him to a game.“I realized there was a problem when I heard fans yell ‘Kill the Indians,’” he said. Little and his brother, Kenneth, came to TCU recently for a screening of their movie and discuss the ongoing debate of using indigenous people as mascots.North Dakota’s mascot from 1930 to 2012, was the Fighting Sioux. It was changed to the Fighting Hawks after a referendum.  “More Than a Word” highlights the 2005 debate between the university and the NCAA. The state Board of Higher Education and the state legislature became involved and the question was put to voters.“More Than a Word” filmmakers Kenneth and John Little discussing the making behind their film to the TCU audience Wednesday evening. Photo by Carolina Olivares.The film also focuses on the debate about NFL team the Washington Redskins.  The brothers said “the R-word,” dates back to genocides of Native Americans in the 1400s when they were skinned.“We wanted to create something that would continue the conversation,” Kenneth said of the movie. They discussed the history of the NFL team, which started as the Boston Braves. Owner George Marshall changed the name to the Boston Redskins when the team moved to Fenway Park.In a 1933 interview with the Associated Press, Marshall said he changed the name to avoid confusion with Boston’s baseball team, then known as the Braves.He said his decision was not tied to the fact that there were Native Americans on the team.“The fact that we have in our head coach, Lone Star Dietz, an Indian, together with several Indian players, has not, as may be suspected, inspired me to select the name Redskins,” Marshall said.A 1933 news article quoting former Boston Redskins team owner, George Marshall, on the name decision. Credit to Hartford Courant.The 1898 1st edition of Merriam-Webster’s, the Collegiate, defines “redskin” as “A North American Indian; ––often contemptuous.” Over time the definition has evolved but as of 2003 the 11th edition defines it as “usually offensive.”Redskins fans interviewed in the film said the team name is not meant to be offensive and the possible name change is only being debated because society wants to be more “politically correct.”Sophomore business major Gabe Lemon agreed: “Native Americans should be grateful that they are being honored.”  Sophomore business major Michael Lloyd said he viewed the mascot as a homage to the team’s fight in each game.“I am against change in general, the mascot is iconic and shows power,” Lloyd said. “The Redskin is another image as a warrior as what represents the team’s grit and strength.”Others said the bravery of Native Americans had nothing to do with sport.They faced rampant racism so they handled those situations as moments of honor, said Diana Parton, a citizen of the Cato nation and a descendant of the Yuchi nation who attended the screening.“They are survivors of the war and we are not,” Parton said.  The film took the audience through a time when the Washington team had a group of Native Americans attend a halftime show in honor of their culture. Many argued that if Native Americans don’t like the mascot then they should not attend these events.Napa High School students protesting in favor of the removal of the Indian mascot. Photo courtesy of San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center.But researchers have found that staying away may not be the solution.Images of Native Americans mascots result in harmful psychological effects, according to “The Harmful Psychological Effects of the Washington Football Mascot,” compiled by Michael A. Friedman, Ph.D.“Not only do mascots have a direct effect on Native American self-esteem, mood, community confidence and sense of achievement, but they also perpetuate negative associations of and attitudes towards Native Americans among non-Native American groups,” according to Friedman’s research.Parton said people should see the issue as more of a community-wide effort regarding mental health.“To address the stereotype issue I would encourage all parents to understand what the use of a stereotype, in general, does to the psyche of the people that are exposed to it,” Parton said.She said a suggestion would be to take away the race aspect and focus on the issue of mental health.First-year student Austin Merkel said he supports the mascot change because it would be positive for the people that find it offensive and he would continue to support the team.“I think it could be an opportunity to make the team more of something that everyone, including Native Americans who are offended by the name, could root for and rally around for,” he said.Merkel said he hopes the team keeps the current colors and finds a new name such as the Redhawks because if implemented correctly the new name could create excitement around the franchise and lead to a potentially bigger, more passionate fan base.Dr. Scott Langston, a professor of religion, who helped organize the film screening, said he hoped to bring more awareness to the obstacles the Standing Rock Sioux tribe face.“Listen to native peoples,” Langston said. “Learn from them, follow their lead and respect their cultures that provide serious answers to many of the problems our society has today.” Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ + posts Carolina Olivareshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/carolina-olivares/ Linkedin Facebook TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Professor of religion Scott Langston introducing “More Than a Word” filmmakers, John and Kenn Little, to the TCU audience Wednesday evening.

Brother of former Limerick hurler killed in overseas crash appeals for…

first_imgLinkedin A brother of a former Limerick hurler who was killed in an overseas road crash, has appealed for people to support an online fundraiser, set up to assist his sibling’s widow and young family.Paul Carey, (41), from Patrickswell died from injuries sustained in the collision, in Dubai, on November 6th last.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up His pregnant wife Anna, their son Fionn (5), along with extended family, have been left devastated by the tragedy.The Paul Carey Memorial Fund was set up yesterday Wednesday, via GoFundMe.com with a target of reaching at least €40,000.Appealing for people to support his late brother’s memorial fund, Sean Carey said: “Paul was swiped in a flash over in Dubai, thousands of miles away, in another country. Anna was suddenly left with her young son and a baby due in February.”“Anna is due in February, and god willing there will be a but of joy in the new year. We would really appreciate any kind of support at all.”Sean Carey said Paul’s sudden death was like “an asteroid” hitting the family.Family friend, Cynthia O’Connell, who organised the memorial fund, said proceeds would go towards supporting Paul’s family in meeting “funeral expenses, legal costs” and their “relocation” to Patrickswell from Dubai.“They had been relocating here so Anna still has those expenses; she has her five year old son; and she’s expecting her baby in the new year. So, she’s trying to cope with her grief and be a full time mother and do so much, so this is to help her with ongoing costs and her expenses for the immediate future, and to try and get her on a stable footing.”“They’re devastated and in shock obviously, it’s been surreal, really,” she added.Mr Carey had been teaching English and Religion in Dubai, and was making last minute arrangements to join his wife and son who had travelled ahead of him to Patrickswell where they had planned to permanently relocate from the United Arab Emirates.“He was full of life, handsome, engaging, witty, charming, funny and a tough but fair sportsman,” said Ms O’Connell.She explained that “the grief and loss” felt by Mr Carey’s family was “incomprehensible”, and that, “wilst we may not be able to take away the pain for Anna and Fionn at this time, we would like to take away some of their financial burden”.“In memory of Paul we wish to raise funds to ensure support for Anna, Fionn and the couples unborn baby with ongoing expenses”.A minute’s silence was observed before the throw-in at this year’s Munster Hurling Final, honouring Mr Carey, who had hurled for Limerick and Patrickswell, and who captained the club to its 18th senior hurling championship title in 2003.The Carey family, including Mr Carey’s brothers and legendary retired Limerick hurler Ciaran, along with Sean, Pa, Nigel, Kevin, and their nephew and present day All Star Limerick hurler Cian Lynch, are steeped in Limerick GAA.Speaking at her husband’s funeral, held in Patrickswell, Anna Carey said: “I only had ten years with Paul but as broken hearted as I am today, in the darkest and saddest moments, I have realised how lucky I have been.”“We had ten amazing years of the deepest love and partnership that I could have ever imagined. Paul made me feel supported, understood, respected and completely and utterly loved and I will carry that with me always,” Ms Carey added.Mr Carey’s months mind mass takes place tomorrow, Thursday, at the Church of the Blessed Virgin, Patrickswell, with numbers restricted due to present COVID-19 guidelines on religious services.To donate to the Paul Carey Memorial Fund visit: https://ie.gofundme.com/f/paul-carey-memorial-fund.
