Many a time, I see many newbie online investors empty their bank account into online investment programs they know little or nothing about its reliability and continuity and before long, they’ve burnt their fingers. Each time I witness this incident, it is something that really makes me very sad and empathic. So after witnessing and hearing of many of this victimizing incident for some time, it dawned on me to offer some help in my own little way by writing out some of the features online investors should look out for in a reliable online investment program before they start investing their money into them: in other to help almeliorate this pathetic situation.

Find Out If It Has An Offline Version

To know if an online investment program is reliable or not make out time to find out if the online investment program has an offline version. If you check and you see that there is an offline version, take a further step to find out if it is not a gambling program, if after your researches, you find out that it is not a gambling program then you know that its online version will be reliable; this is so as investment programs, online and offline are the same. Many people think the internet is a kind of Disney land where money is digitally processed- so even the riskiest of online investment programs they empty their bank account into them in other to get an overnight turnover.

The Percentage Of Interest

By the percentage of interest, I mean the percentage the investment firm promises to pay you within a given period of time. Yes the percentage is what you really have to critically scrutinize to see if it is normal and realizable and can stand the test of time. If you find out that the promised percentage is on the outrageously high side, then dont invest in it; because if the percentage is very much on the high side, it means either it is a gamble where you are likely to loose your money within a twinkle of an eye or it is a scam program established to trap people’s money by offering outrageous percentage of interest.

The Programs Pedigree

Before you choose an online investment program to invest into, find out its pedigree. By this I mean find out how many people that are doing the business and how many percentage of them are actually making good profit from it. If after your research, you find out that its only a tiny percentage of the total people involved in it that are actually making substantial profit from the program, know that the program is not reliable and consequently you shouldnt invest in it.

And another thing, find out how long the program has been on. If the program has stood the test of time, then the program is reliable and worth sticking out your neck on with some percentage of your money.

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.

Corruption-related charges have been brought against Jacob Zuma, the newly-elected leader of the African National Congress (ANC), according to his lawyer. A trial is scheduled to begin on August 14, 2008.

The charges stem from an arms deal with a French company, which is alleged to have involved bribes and fraud. Zuma’s financial adviser at the time, Schabir Shaik, was convicted in 2005 of attempting to solicit a bribe of US$72,500 per year from the arms company on Zuma’s behalf and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Zuma was fired as deputy president in 2005 by South African President Thabo Mbeki due to the scandal.

Two-term ANC leader Mbeki recently lost an ANC leadership contest to Jacob Zuma, who garnered about 60 percent of delegate votes in his win.

Zuma had been charged with corruption in 2005, but the case was dismissed on procedural grounds. Michael Hulley, Zuma’s defence lawyer, indicated that they will strongly contest the new charges in court. Hulley also suggested that the South African government’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and its anti-organised crime division known as The Scorpions, have carried out a smear campaign against Zuma.

“These charges will be vigorously defended, in the context of the belief that the Scorpions (NPA) have acted wrongly and with improper motive calculated to discredit Mr. Zuma and ensure that he play no leadership role in the political future of our country,” said Michael Hulley in a statement.

Given that the ANC has been the governing party in South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994, it is likely that Jacob Zuma could become the next president after general elections in 2009. Zuma has said, however, that he would resign if he was found guilty by the courts.

How sustainable windows are learning from the Aircaft industry


Chris Dixon

For over 60 years, aeroplanes have been built using aluminium due to its strength and lightness of weight.

This was a great improvement over the previously used plywood and canvass and without it we couldn’t have achieved the development of the modern jet aircraft, nor flown the non-stop distances that we take for granted, today. This requires flying above 30,000 feet which needs a strong, light construction to withstand the pressure differences at such high altitudes.

For the past 30 years aluminium has also been used extensively in the design and manufacture of window frames in the UK Commercial market due, also, to its strength and lightness.

However, no matter how good and reliable any material or product is, there is always the possibility that one day, superior technology will move it aside and create something even better to come along and completely supersede it.

This is already happening, today. In the aircraft industry, Boeing’s 787, so called ‘Dream-liner’ was the first to break tradition and turn towards innovative new technology that not only matches what aluminium can offer – but which goes some way beyond in terms of strength, durability, lightness and rigidity – and avoids the future possibility of metal fatigue.

‘Fibre Reinforced Polymer’ (FRP) is the generic term for high performance, light weight compounds which combine reinforcing fibres of glass or carbon into a tough and durable thermosetting resin, to generate composite materials of astonishing strength and capability.

Already used as the heat resisting nose cone on the NASA Space Shuttle, these FRPs are significantly stronger than steel, weight for weight and are often known by such names as GRP, fibreglass, carbon fibre and graphite. We are more familiar with them as the best material for producing golf clubs, tennis and squash racquets, fishing rods, motor cycle fairings, Formula 1 car bodies and disc brakes, Olympic vaulting poles – the list goes on.

According to Russell Maguire, Boeing’s Technical Vice President, the new 787 will have 94% of its wings and fuselage made entirely from FRP composites, which will provide a lightweight one piece moulded body shell, thus no joints or rivets to deteriorate – and producing a lighter aircraft with greater fuel efficiency, creating less carbon emissions and thereby far better for the environment – helping Boeing to meet its corporate responsibility towards climate change.

Something similar is happening in the window industry. Climate change is heavily influencing the fate of aluminium in the UK Building Industry, too. Commercial windows in offices, schools, high-rise tower blocks, hospitals, care homes, etc, have predominantly used aluminium for 30 years, simply because no other material has been strong enough or suitable for these architecturally designed projects – until now.

As in the aircraft industry, FRP (pultruded GRP Fibreglass) has been found to be far better qualified than aluminium for window manufacture, due to its higher strength, durability and thermal insulation, which leaves aluminium floundering in its wake when chasing lower thermal U values and higher sustainability targets for some of our more challenging BREEAM projects. (BREEAM: UK Government inspired sustainable building standards to achieve higher environmental levels of construction – and lower carbon emissions when in use. Building Research Establishment, Environmental Assessment Model)

The advantages of GRP Fibreglass over aluminium don’t stop there, either! The following list summarises some of the additional benefits:-

* Service life of 50 – 75 years is double that for aluminium

* Thermal U values of 0.9 W/M2K are half aluminium’s best (1.8)

* GRP needs no surface protection, essential for aluminium to prevent corrosion in weather and coastal sea spray.

* Both materials are supplied coated in any colour with a 25 year life

* Aluminium can’t be repaired/re-coated so poor appearance eventually demands replacement. Scratches and damage can hasten that end.

* GRP can be repaired/re-coated any time, in any colour, providing another 25 years and requiring zero maintenance.

*Pultruded GRP will not bend or deform like aluminium, being a softer metal

*The rate of expansion of GRP is insignificant even at high temperature. Aluminium is the opposite.

* GRP carbonises in fire, protecting its structural integrity. Aluminium melts at 660C.

* Despite the many benefits of GRP over aluminium – GRP gives better price and value

So, no matter how good and reliable aluminium once was, there has come the day when superior technology is moving it aside, having created something even better to completely supersede it.

Frank Walker, the chief minister of Jersey, a United Kingdom Crown dependency off the coast of Normandy, France, denies that there was a cover up after a child’s remains were found.

The allegations of a cover-up stem from statements by Stuart Syvret. Syvret, the former Minister for Health and Social Services for Jersey, said that “It’s a continuum that we see. It’s a culture of cover-up and concealment and tragically the recent evidence is just the latest manifestation of that.”

It has come to light that Edward Paisnel, a notorious pedophile, used to visit the Haut de la Garenne children’s home dressed as Father Christmas. Paisnel in 1971, was given a sentence of 30 years for 13 counts of assault, rape and sodomy.

Syvret says he was dismissed from his ministerial position after highlighting the “torture” of 11 to 16-year-olds in the island’s care homes. He claimed he was “sacked for whistleblowing”.

Police are currently investigating twenty-seven cases of child abuse on the island and recently discovered the body of one child at a care home Haut de la Garenne in St. Martin, and with a potential six sites in the area where more bodies may be located. The home was closed in 1986 and since 2003 it has served as a youth hostel.

Jersey’s deputy police chief, Lenny Harper said “Part of the inquiry will be the fact that a lot of the victims tried to report their assaults but for some reason or another they were not dealt with as they should be.”

Harper added that “no evidence of a cover-up of any Jersey government” has been found. “We are looking at allegations that a number of agencies didn’t deal with things as perhaps they should.”

Syvret has encouraged the government of the United Kingdom to assign independent judges to oversee any cases that result from the investigations.

Builders originally uncovered a body at the care home in 2003 but it was only since an operation investigate child abuse started in 2006 that progress has been made. An ex-minister of the States of Jersey, the parliament of the island, has criticised the handling of the case, stating that abuse cases were mishandled.

Walker told senators that all necessary resources would be use to find the abusers. “None of us imagined that children in Jersey could be abused and mistreated in the way that is being suggested,” the BBC have quoted him as saying. “I express my shock and horror that these things have apparently happened within our island.”

Specialist police from the United Kingdom have been investigating after an enquiry turned up 140 sources verifying the claims of abuse.

James Brady, former White House Press Secretary for the Ronald Reagan US presidential administration and advocate for gun control, died yesterday at age 73 in an Alexandria, Virginia retirement community. The family released a statement saying, “We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved Jim ‘Bear’ Brady has passed away after a series of health issues”. Brady was a few weeks shy of his 74th birthday.

Brady was serving as President Reagan’s press secretary when he was the most seriously wounded out of four, in a assassination attempt on Reagan by John Hinckley, Jr. on March 30, 1981. Brady was shot in the head by a hollow-point bullet damaging his right frontal lobe. Dr. Arthur Kobrine, a neurosurgeon, operated on Brady to save his life. Brady survived but was left with brain damage, slurred speech, short-term memory loss, and partial paralysis which required use of a wheelchair.

Following the assassination attempt, Brady and his wife Sarah joined with The Center to Prevent Handgun Violence, and Handgun Control, Inc., two organizations lobbying for gun control. The organizations were later renamed in honor of Brady, as Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence respectively. The organizations lobbied for the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, a law passed in 1993 which requires federal background checks on firearm purchasers in the United States.

Brady never again held press conferences after the assassination attempt; nevertheless, he officially remained press secretary throughout the entire Reagan administration, till 1989. In 2000, the White House press briefing room was renamed after Brady. Josh Earnest, President Barack Obama’s current press secretary, along with eleven other former White House press secretaries said in a statement, “Jim Brady defined the role of the modern White House Press Secretary. With his passing we lost a friend and mentor, and the country lost a selfless public servant who dedicated his life to service, even in the face of tragedy. […] Jim set the model and standard for the rest of us to follow. It’s been a genuine honor for each of us to stand at the podium in the briefing room that will always bear his name.”

Do you need help with everyday tasks?



There will be a time in life where we may all need a little bit of help with certain everyday tasks which can be due to our age. But, however there are things which can benefit and help us with those tasks which we may stuggle with on a daily basis.

Do you or someone you know struggle to sleep at night due to the pain and discomfort you may feel when you or they are trying to get to sleep. Then investing in a nursing bed could be the best and most beneficial choice to make to try and avoid these problems. They can prevent any discomfort you may usually feel in a normal bed and help to prevent certain things such as bed sores etc. Most are usually made to fit the specific needs a patient has so that they will feel as comfortable as possible.

YouTube Preview Image

Nursing beds are available in a number of styles and provide different aspects of care to fit the specific needs of the person who is suffering from any kind of discomfort. Some beds can have their heights adjusted to allow the patient to get in and out easily without having to suffer with any pain or discomfort which they may have had previously. The head rest can also be adjusted to make lowering yourself and getting up easier. Hoists can also be fitted to the beds so that patients can lift themselves up and out of bed easily without the added discomfort.

Pressue mattresses can also be added to nursing beds to add extra comfort and prevent injuries such as bed sores and aches and pains. A pressure mattress can be blown up and extra pressure can be added to certain areas such as the back and feet where pressure ulcers and sores are most likely to occur. A benefit of the pressure mattress is that you can add as much or as little pressure as you would like. Again they can come in a range of styles to suit the person\\’s needs, whether they suffer from back pains, ulcers or any other kind of tissue damage. Air pressure cushions are also widely available for extra added comfort for patients.

As well as air pressure mattresses there are also foam pressure mattresses which specialise in preventing the risk of developing pressure ulcers which occur from lying in the same position for long periods of time. Foam mattresses vary depending on the risk in which the patient may develop pressure ulcers.

If it\\’s getting out of bed that you struggle with then a hoist might be just the thing you need. These allow patients to transfer themselves out of bed easily without suffering from any aches or pains.

A storm yesterday caused a crane to fall into Mecca’s Grand Mosque, killing 107 or more and wounding 238, according to Saudi Arabia’s Civil Defense Authority.

Civil Defense Authority director General Suleiman al-Amr, in remarks to al-Ikhbariya television, said “All those who were wounded and the dead have been taken to hospital. There are no casualties left at the location”.

The accident, which occurred yesterday afternoon, was caused by strong winds and heavy rain that led the crane to fall. Photos released of the scene showed numerous bloodied bodies and various scattered debris.

The accident occurred at a time when the mosque was relatively uncrowded. “Had it happened an hour later it would have been much worse,” Khaled Al-Maeena, editor at large at the Saudi Gazette, said. “Had it happened five hours earlier or four hours earlier, I think the death toll would have been more than a thousand.”

The crane accident comes just ten days before the beginning of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Islam’s holiest site. As undergoing a pilgrimage to Mecca is a mandatory religious duty for all Muslims who physically and financially can, millions of pilgrims arrive in Mecca each year for the Hajj. Construction was underway at the mosque in order to enlarge the mosque and improve crowd control, which has been a recurring problem during Mecca’s pilgrimages.
