3 reasons to not overpay a mortgage

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. A mortgage is the biggest financial commitment many of us will ever take on. As such, it can make a lot of sense to pay off this debt as quickly as possible. Indeed, that’s why I’ve been trying to make overpayments to my own loan over the last few years.Last month, however, I decided to stop doing so for three reasons.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…Low rates    First, a bit of context. In the last month, I switched to another fixed deal at a lower rate that I was previously paying. Much my father’s indignation (he grappled with double-digit percentages back in the 1990s), my new rate is a little under 2%. The fact that I’m now paying less than half the rate of interest I was before means there’s a bit of cash leftover. “So why not carry on making overpayments“, you might be wondering?One reason relates to the product itself. Unsurprisingly, there are limits to how much a lender will let you pay off within a certain time frame. Go over this limit and you’ll be penalised. With repayments now less than they would have been had I not tackled the mortgage head-on in the past, this was a potential issue for me. It may be a risk for you too.A second reason relates to the benefits that come from moving this extra cash into my Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP).As I’ve mentioned before, SIPPs are a very attractive option for most long-term investors. In addition to letting you shield any investment profits from the taxman, having a SIPP means you’ll also receive tax relief from the government on any money you pay in. In practice, this means that someone with, say, £100 left in surplus cash every month will get an additional 25% on that amount if they put it in their SIPP, assuming they pay the basic rate tax. So, they’d have £125 rather than £100 to put to work.My third reason follows on from the second. Right now, the yield generated by a simple exchange-traded fund that tracks the FTSE 100 is higher than the interest being charged on my mortgage debt (although, clearly, rates might rise in the future). As such, I stand a chance of generating more wealth over the long term by investing the spare cash, reinvesting the income I receive in my SIPP and allowing compounding to work its magic. A word of cautionWhether someone should switch from overpaying their mortgage to putting any surplus cash to work in the market will clearly depend on their circumstances. The latter option is far riskier.Shares might plunge tomorrow and, in doing so, reduce the value of any money not used for the mortgage. Contrast this with the comfort felt from knowing you’re tackling your biggest debt faster than originally intended, thus potentially saving you thousands of pounds in the process.There are ways of mitigating this risk. Buying liquid, diversified funds (such as that mentioned) rather than individual company stocks should temper some of the volatility. A commitment to investing for decades rather than a few months or years should also make it easier to deal with things on an emotional level.Ultimately, both overpaying and investing are good ideas but the best option for someone will always be that which allows them to sleep at night.  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.

This is an allotment on a gentle slope covered by evergreen oak, elm, ash, acacia, prunus and plane trees, all seeded spontaneously by birds from the surrounding plots. All of these trees and their canopy perimeters were measured and drawn on to plan. Le Corbusier said he wanted the empty La Tourette courtyard to be populated naturally with vegetation, by birds and the wind. Le Corbusier left a void in his architecture to be populated by nature. We think this project has arisen in opposition to that idea. Save this picture!© Pablo ZuloagaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Pablo ZuloagaNature has left us a gap and here, only here, can we populate it with something that is architecture, because it is rational. We agree with la Tourette, however, that neither camouflage nor integration nor what is called “ organic architecture “ have ever really been sought. The house adapts by pure opposition. In Italy, some of the motorway bridges are painted sky blue. An innocent, sweet camouflage that only works as expected on a few days and at certain moments, yet we find it most beautiful on the days when you can actually see the trick. The ultimate purpose is (it would be an exaggeration to say “always”)whatever is admired.Save this picture!© Pablo ZuloagaThis allotment is already choked with something that should be preserved, and the only choice left to us is to fill in the remaining interfaces, only the areas that are possible, remnants, between the trees, which we have no intention of touching at all. Respect, but to a manic extent. The house is set beneath two platforms that strive to arise our gaze above the natural setting towards the eastern sky. The views of the house look at the base of the natural environment. The project consists of these two platforms. The house is an addition underneath them. These two platforms are comfortable, with soft pavements, for living inside most of the time. Each one has a different colour an a different level to facilitate access. Each one corresponds to an interior time of the house, and each one is nothing without the other. The only thing we can say about the interior space is that it goes unnoticed. It arises as a remainder from the reaction of the only space being worked here. Outdoor space. Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThis is a project that is only related to the exterior. Two horizontal platforms cultivate it in generic proximity but a metaphoric distance. Distance in which we speak of inanimate nature, reproduced or abstract, also a reflection of an earth and a sky , which becomes involved with both but belongs to neither. The resemblances in its zoomorphic or anthropomorphic silhouette that seem to belong of similarities, the conincidences of the situation of the spherical lightwells/lookouts with eyes and the other skylights with backbones, are just coincidences.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity of North Florida Interfaith Chapel Competition Entry / OADArticlesFire Shelter: 01 / SHJ WorksArticles Share “COPY” Photographs Silicon House / Selgas Cano “COPY” ArchDailycenter_img Projects Houses Silicon House / Selgas CanoSave this projectSaveSilicon House / Selgas Cano Save this picture!© Pablo Zuloaga+ 24 Share Architects: Selgascano Year Completion year of this architecture project Spain Year:  CopyAbout this officeSelgas CanoOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesSpainPublished on January 31, 2013Cite: “Silicon House / Selgas Cano” 31 Jan 2013.

The building unfurls and is folded into the railroad landscape and composite urban fabric. In the new Charolais quarter, a 281 room social residence acts as the masthead of the “development lot” while embedded in the existing fabric of the suburb and its extensions from the 80s and 90s. On the land acquired from former railway installations, the building offers a new urban façade on the southside, thereby enhancing the entrance into the city for rail travelers using the gare de Lyon.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeTo the north, on the rue du Charolais, the daycare center signifies its presence with its volume projected out onto the street. It unfolds within to create a courtyard garden around existing trees to benefit the whole neighborhood. To the west, the new rue Jorge Semprun, is lined with studio apartments and residential housing. The perspectives are negotiated in such a way as to create comfortable views and to structure a common courtyard with existing buildings. The angular geometries are the result of this optimization, which, in addition, guarantees a visual and solar porosity within the islet. Finally, with the new passageway, we open the islet up completely, allowing for continuous pedestrian circulation from the daycare center to the new quarter.Save this picture!Floor PlanProgram and materialityThe programmatic mix enhances what is a complex operation on the urban level. The unitary base is a pedestal associating the collective dimension of the daycare center, the social residence and the apartments, in the same materiality: the curtain wall in enameled and transparent glass. Thus, the urban constraints disappear in the spatial resolution which offers a generous welcome to the disadvantaged population occupying the social residence.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeThe differences in the shades of the cladding, white sheet metal and bronze stainless steel, facilitate recomposing the urban landscape and ensure the transition from the scale of the industrial area (the ZAC) to that of the restructured building.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeThe Daycare CenterBenefitting from its small scale, it extends according to the principle of a pedestal that is stretched and folded to keep its distance from the main building of the residence and surround the courtyard of the establishment. Although the daycare building is spatially embedded within the residence building, it remains totally independent from a functional point of view. The daycare center provides services for 60 children: infants and toddlers on the main ground level and, on a partial level on the first floor, preschoolers.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeAs they are related to one another through their glass partitions, the living spaces feel larger than they are, thanks to reflections and transparencies. Halos of light flicker on the ceilings and provide soft and diffuse lighting. With its plants and white stones, the patio garden adds to the natural light in the heart of the building. The spacious courtyard (270m2) occupies the part of the site with existing trees. This court is complemented on the first floor by a large playground terrace (110m2) for the older children.Save this picture!Floor PlanFamily ApartmentsThe new building of collective apartments is accessible from the promenade leading to the residence. All the apartments enjoy morning light in the kitchen and double exposures, thanks to the optimization of the distance between it and the existing buildings facing it. Most of these apartments have outdoor space as well.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeThe Social ResidenceThe residence includes a restructured and enlarged portion to the south and the east. These extensions improve the quality of life in the studios. The residence entry hall reunites the new program (46 apartments) to the renovated units (235 apartments) in a very organic space that considers the different places and opens up onto a terrace with a southern exposure.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeThese units are distributed according to a double plan:-Exterior, via the terrace-stairwell, offering collective spaces of relaxation at each level.-Interior, via a restructuring of the floor distributions providing natural light throughout.The top floor of the residence benefits from an exceptional view over the landscape, the station’s immense skein of railroad tracks and beams.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeThe RoomsThe advantages of a tight plot (2.3m) allow for decomposing the various usages into sequences and conferring these with a certain degree of autonomy. The sleeping area is thus distanced from the kitchenette. This stretching of the studio provides a sensation of spaciousness. Wide apertures open onto the garden on one side, and out to the wide horizon, on the other.Save this picture!© Clément GuillaumeProject gallerySee allShow lessSitula Housing and Office Complex / Bevk PerovicSelected ProjectsMichelle Tianhui Chen Wins Robert A.M.

TCU’s annual tree lighting to provide holiday kickoff for community

first_img + posts printThe Fort Worth community can join the Horned Frog community to kick-off the holiday season Tuesday with TCU’s annual tree lighting ceremony.The event, which starts at 6:30 in the Campus Commons, has been celebrated for more than 40 years.“It’s gone from a small campus event, to a large community-wide program,” said Brad Thompson, assistant director of student activities. “The tree lighting has become something truly valuable to our student body and our surrounding community.”Thompson said guests can expect a 43-foot Christmas tree, 2,000 more lights than last year and a more dramatic fireworks display.“I love that we have a strong tradition that students really respond to that’s not very complicating or complex,” Thompson said. “But we tweak it every year to give our students and the community something new to look forward to.”Thompson said various activities and displays catering to students and families will be offered including hot chocolate bars, green screen backdrops and photographs taken with SuperFrog Santa.“We will have a fake reindeer display of cows dressed as reindeer and a display with real reindeer,” Thompson said. “Children can also participate in activities including writing letters to Santa.”Courtney Tulbert, a local resident, said she and her family have attended the TCU tree lighting every year they have lived in Fort Worth.“We love seeing alumni, current students and future students come together to kick off the Christmas season,”Tulbert said. “There’s always so much to do for the little ones and the students are so great with them. We love seeing the current students make Christmas at TCU so special for the children and the rest of the community.”Thompson said there are many activities for kids, but the event is created with students in mind.“We do this event for our students, because we know they are paying for it,” he said. “It’s still a unique blend of a great community event, but one that students love.”Thompson said Order of Omega will host a gift drive where guests can donate gifts to the 500 local children the organization is sponsoring this year for the holidays.“A lot of people are contributing toward this year’s tree lighting in their own different way,” Thompson said. “We will have roughly 40 volunteers from different campus and area organizations.”He said music will be performed at both ends of Campus Commons. A TCU alumn will perform classic holiday music with a band. Members of TCU Acapella Society will perform by Frog Fountain.Thompson said he and his team have planned for more than 6,500 people to attend the tree lighting this year.“Last year, we counted more than 6,000 attendees at the tree lighting,” Thompson said. “Because of its growing success, we budgeted $30,000 for this year’s event.”He said in years past the event has cost between $17,000 and $22,000.“We’re always making it better, and trying to make it a stronger program,” Thompson said. “We try and create a large gathering point for TCU’s student community, but also for the Fort Worth community.” Previous articleWin over Baylor speaks volumes of Frogs’ resilienceNext articleTCU Volleyball earns berth to NCAA Tournament Claire Girman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Claire Girmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/claire-girman/ Claire Girmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/claire-girman/ Facebook The109: Community hosts fundraiser to support injured Fort Worth officer Twitter Linkedin Claire Girmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/claire-girman/ Sickle cell support group raises awareness, gives back to local doctors Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature ReddIt Claire Girman Claire Girman is a journalism major from Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

He gave other reasons for pulling the programme, in particular, the way Galán spoke on the air to Carlos Barba, the head of the state human rights commission. Galán had accused Barba in an interview of being “over-cautious” in his approach to a prostitute’s murder.”This is all very strange because I talked to Carlos Barba and he isn’t the one who asked for the programme to be stopped,” Galán said. “I think the real reason is that my programme upset people (…) The subjects covered and even its name bothered some people at the university (…) I think it was a very personal decision taken by just one individual. It’s not Guadalajara university, because the university never censored me.” Newslast_img read more

It was also submitted that first information report was lodged by father of the girl. Chief Judicial Magistrate, Hathras had rejected their plea to close the case on the ground that he does not have jurisdiction to pass order in such compromise in non-compoundable offencesThe Court noted the Apex Court judgment in Gian Singh Vs. State of Punjab  (2012) 10 SCC 303, in which it was held held that the compromise can be made between the parties even in respect of certain cognizable and non compoundable offences.”The court is of the considered opinion that no useful purpose shall be served by prolonging the proceedings of the above mentioned criminal case as the parties have already settled their dispute.”, Justice Manju Rani Chauhan observed while quashing the criminal proceedings against the accused.Quashing Rape CasesIn State of Madhya Pradesh v Madan Lal, it was held by the Apex Court that in a case of rape or attempt of rape, the conception of compromise under no circumstances can really be thought of. However, the Supreme Court, in 2019, quashed a ‘rape case’ on the ground of settlement between the accused and the victim for doing complete justice to the parties concerned. Some High Courts have exercised its inherent powers to quash rape cases especially in cases where the victim and the accused entered into wedlock. The Delhi High Court, last year, rejected an application seeking quashing of a rape case, filed under section 376 of IPC, on the ground of a settlement being reached between the victim and the accused.

first_imgABC News(WASHINGTON) — Arriving nearly one minute before her 7-year-old son stepped into the terminal at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C., Brenda rushed to embrace Kevin, after having been apart for a month and four days, a separation long enough for emotions to run high for this family reunification.“I couldn’t take one more minute without being able to be here with him,” said Brenda, who asked that her last name not be used.Her attorney, Astrid Lockwood, interpreted for her.“Today I feel like my heart was returned to me,” Brenda said.However, Brenda faced a number of challenges before she could be reunited with her son.Towards the end of May, Brenda fled from Santa Tecla, El Salvador, to the U.S.-Mexico border with Kevin after she says she was threatened by two rival gangs in the area. When the pair arrived at the southwest border of Arizona, Brenda said she asked for asylum and was immediately apprehended by U.S. officials.Officials soon separated Brenda from her son and each was sent to a different facility.Kevin was placed in a shelter facility in Miami for young children, while Brenda was sent to three different facilities. She was even mistakenly sent to an all-male facility in Arizona, Lockwood said.However, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the facility houses both men and women. It is still unclear exactly where Brenda was detained and under what conditions.During their time apart, Brenda and Kevin had difficulty communicating, Lockwood said.“I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. All I could think about was where he was, how he was,” Brenda said.On June 21, a federal immigration judge authorized Brenda to be released on an immigration bond, an ICE spokesperson told ABC News. Five days later, Brenda was released from ICE custody after posting bond.Her case is pending in the immigration courts, according to ICE.Brenda is one of many undocumented immigrants who have been separated from their children at the border after seeking asylum in the U.S., a result of the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy.After the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed that nearly 2,300 children were separated from their families, a wave of immigrant advocacy groups and social justice leaders mobilized support from thousands. Facing an overwhelming backlash, President Trump signed an executive order last week to put an end to the policy.However, a spokesman for the Amercian Civil Liberties Union remained unconvinced, saying: “The devil is in the details.”“This crisis will not abate until each and every single child is reunited with his or her parent,” said Anthony D. Romero, the group’s executive director.The ACLU was one of the first groups to take legal action against the Trump administration in Ms. L v. ICE earlier this year, after a mother from the Congo seeking asylum and her 7-year-old daughter were separated.They were reunited in March.On Tuesday, a federal judge rejected the government’s request to dismiss the ACLU’s case and ruled the challenge can proceed after the group filed for class certification.Moreover, the group has collected more than 226,000 signatures for a petition to end family separation and numerous donations from supporters.On Friday evening, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said families will be detained together during immigration proceedings.“To comply with the Ms. L injunction barring parents in DHS custody from being separated from their children, the Government will not separate families but detain families together during the pendency of immigration proceedings when they are apprehended at or between ports of entry,” the DOJ said in a statement.Lockwood told ABC News that Brenda’s next steps in this process are to complete a “motion of change of venue” to the Baltimore court. If the motion is granted, their cases can be consolidated and heard together where they will continue to fight for their asylum, said Lockwood.“I feel strong, I feel positive now, now that I have I have my child,” Brenda said. “I know that it’s not going to be easy to fight the asylum case but I have faith in God that everything will turn out alright.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
