If you want to retire a millionaire and make the most of your advanced years, I’d choose a Stocks and Shares ISA over alternatives such as buy-to-let, every time.Investing via an ISA has many advantages. Once you’ve set up an online platform, you can buy and sell shares in seconds. Even better, all your returns are completely free of income tax and capital gains tax, for life. The costs are minimal. You cannot say any of this about buy-to-let.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…Investing in a buy-to-let property is a hard way to fund a millionaire retirement, and the Covid-19 crisis has only made it worse. There are growing reports of landlords struggling to fill empty properties due to the lockdown. Others are struggling to collect the rent, because tenants have lost their job, or been furloughed.Who wants to retire a millionaire?Landlords will be extending payment holidays to many, rightly so, but that’s three months without income. And what if tenants still cannot pay the rent after that? Then you face the kind of heart-breaking decision you’ll never face if you invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA.Buying and selling property is also effortful, and you face punitive tax charges at every turn. These include a 3% stamp duty surcharge on purchases, while higher rate tax relief on mortgage interest payments has been scrapped. This makes it harder to earn enough money to retire a millionaire.As I said, there’s no tax to pay at any point in a Stocks and Shares ISA. At least until you die. Even then, you can pass them tax-free to a spouse or civil partner.Another attraction is that, unlike property, shares are liquid. Property takes months to buy and sell, shares take seconds. This means you can seize opportunities like the current stock market crash to load up your portfolio and retire early.Thousands have already become tax-free millionaires by investing in stocks and shares through an ISA. With the allowance now lifted to £20,000 a year, their numbers will only grow.I’d load up by a Stocks and Shares ISAThe stock market crash is a great opportunity to load up your ISA portfolio with bargain FTSE 100 stocks. There are plenty of top companies going cheap right now. Better still, you can buy them online, without breaking any social distancing rules.Naturally, you won’t become an ISA millionaire overnight. You should aim to invest as much as you can afford each year, then hold on for the long-term. It’ll take a few decades, but you should get there if you stick with it.A Stocks and Shares ISA is the best way I know to make a million from investing. It’s certainly easier than buy-to-let.

“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” If you’re looking for SIPP investing ideas, you’re in the right place. My SIPP is my ticket to a happy retirement. That’s why I treat SIPP investing differently than my Stocks and Shares ISA.I’m going to hold these FTSE 100 shares for 30 years. So quality is king. Add value on top, and I have myself a winning combination. Lower price-to-earnings ratios are generally better, as long as we’re talking about quality companies.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…SIPP investing ideasI’d prefer to pay bargain prices for my FTSE 100 shares, if possible.“Whether it’s stocks or socks, I prefer buying merchandise when it’s marked down,” says Warren Buffett.So first on my list of SIPP investing ideas is Royal Dutch Shell (LSE:RDSB). This quarter’s dividend yield has been cut for the first time since World War II. The company reported a net loss of $24m in Q1 2020 compared to a $6bn profit for the same period in 2019.So some long-term holders have deserted the ship. But I see this a relatively short-term weakness. At these bargain basement prices I’m jumping aboard.I’m convinced that with Shell’s gargantuan earnings power, the dividend will return.Shell’s P/E ratio is in single figures for the first time in years. It now stands at 8.1. That’s well below the average P/E ratio of all FTSE 100 shares of 13.2, and far beneath the forecast average of 17.4.I was annoyed to miss the P/E dip under 12 times earnings for my SIPP in late 2018. But my opportunity has finally come around again.Mining for treasureNext up in my SIPP investing ideas is Anglo American (LSE:AAL). It’s another blue-chip giant with a P/E ratio of 7.2. This single-digit price tag is the cheapest it has been since 2017. And yet the South African multinational miner has been recovering strongly from the Covid-induced market crash.Quality is evident. Its sales per share have been growing strongly for the last five years, up from £10.29 per share to £18.24 in 2019. All the while AAL has been deleveraging its balance sheet, cutting its debt-to-assets ratio from 58% in 2015 to 44% last year. Return on capital and equity are both extremely strong, and its operating margin of 20% can’t be easily bettered.It has large interests in diamond mining through its De Beers subsidiary, along with large copper mines in Chile and Peru. At a market cap of £24.2bn and sales of £23.7bn, there’s also value to be had here.Take a SIPP of thisThe last of my SIPP investing ideas is Aviva. I’ve long been an Aviva holder, and I’ve been pound-cost averaging into the insurer since the crash.Want proof of its quality? When FTSE 100 shares rebounded on (perhaps undue) optimism, Aviva started flying upwards. So I’m convinced picking it up on weakness today will yield superstar compound growth in future.Value-wise, there’s a lot to love. Sales of £70bn on a £10bn market cap is one handy figure. A price-to-book value of 0.64 is tiny given the size of the company.At a P/E ratio of just 4.4, this is perhaps the biggest bargain of them all. It has warned of a £160m Covid-19 payout to businesses. That sounds like a lot of money. But when you consider last year’s profits were £3.9bn? A drop in the ocean. I’d buy it every day of the week if I could.

For nine to 10 months of the year, we depend on our sea ice to travel to other communities, as the basis of our hunting and just the basis on which we use our land.”When temperatures increase in the South, they increase by two or three times more in the Arctic, Obed said—an enormous cause of concern for his people.“If the world goes to two degrees [higher], we go to six to eight degrees. And what will that do to our permafrost? What will that do to our Arctic environment? What will that do to our caribou or our char?” he asked.“I’m arguing for our survival as a society, and as a people.”Seventy per cent of Inuit families still rely on wild game as a source of food, he said.Climate change has made it harder for Inuit to read their environment for changes in the weather, he said.“As the weather patterns change and become unrecognizable, Inuit have said that they don’t understand the weather the way we used to, and that the weather patterns aren’t as predictable…and that the seasons change in a different way than even a generation ago,” he said.Inuit have also noticed changes to animals, their migration patterns, the presence of new species in the Arctic—even changes to the way game tastes and the quality of the animal skins they work with, he added.Obed concluded by urging members of General Synod, when considering responsible investing measures, to act in the interests “of a people that you aren’t necessarily going to go to church with on Sunday, but are people that are going to be…affected by potential decisions that are made.”General Synod also heard from Canon Ken Gray, secretary of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network, and Kevin Thomas, director of shareholder engagement at SHARE, a Canadian organization that provides advice on responsible investing.The stewardship of creation, Gray said, is becoming “increasingly central to our vocation as Anglican Christians.”He reminded General Synod that the agreement reached last December in Paris — to cap the world’s average temperature increase at two per cent, but “ideally” at 1.5 per cent — provides little in the way of assurances of action.“Remember that there is nothing in that agreement beyond aspirations and a very limited accountability,” he said. “Nothing is binding, and there is not a plan in sight.”Thomas said the process by which a church aligns its investment with its mission has to be comprehensive, collaborative, committed and creative. It has to be comprehensive, he said, in that it should look not just at divestment, for example, but at its investment guidelines and practices as a whole. It should not simply act in isolation from corporations, but actively engage in them, asking them to change their practices. It should commit itself to the idea that it needn’t engage in endless discussions in order for there to be real outcomes, he said, and it should be creative in finding solutions to problems.

In the Slachthuis district in Antwerp, META has completed the Koning Noord apartment building: a project with 26 houses, a crèche and a workspace. Commissioned by ISTATE, META designed 2 volumes in raw concrete, connected them with a plinth around an inner garden and finished the building with gold-coloured anodised aluminium joinery and balustrades.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinBy prioritising rigorous rationality in both concept and execution, META makes room for the design of a generous building. Koning Noord consists of 2 buildings: a volume on the street side that completes the facade row of the Twee Netenstraat and – lying deep on the plot – a second volume that also connects to the adjacent buildings. The 2 volumes are linked on the ground floor by a continuous plinth that folds around the inner garden.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Filip DujardinThe roof of this plinth is used as an intensive green roof and forms, in addition to the inner garden, a second horizontal green area. There is underground parking for 37 cars and a shed for 83 bicycles. The more public functions can be found on the ground floor: the crèche, which is accessible from the courtyard garden and the workspace.Save this picture!© Filip Dujardin“The idiosyncratic volumetric is the consequence of the exceptional neighbouring buildings. A ground-floor plinth stretches around a collective inner garden and connects both volumes.” – Niklaas Deboutte, META architectuurbureau Typological plan ensures quality and affordability The flats are located in the 2 volumes.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThere are 4 types of flats per floor which are repeated on each level. Only the top floor on the street side deviates from this typological plan in order to create 2 duplex flats with spacious roof terraces. “The project offers affordable, contemporary housing tailored to a neighbourhood in full development. Even before the works began, the project was completely sold out.” – Bert Craeghs, ISTATE The maximum repetition of a typological plan has many technical advantages and increases the logic and thus the affordability of the design.Save this picture!© Bart KiggenThe window openings and terraces, which are visibly positioned below each other, create a neutral architecture. Finally, the structure was designed to allow sufficient flexibility for possible future changes in the layout of the flats. Grey concrete finished with gold-coloured terraces and balustrades Each flat has two large windows.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!PlanBy grouping the open and closed facade surfaces, the concrete could be cast on site using plank formwork – traditionally an expensive construction method – while remaining feasible within the strict financial outlines of this project.

SHARE Tanks for transporting and storing pesticides can be made of a variety of materials – not all of which are created equal. A new Purdue Extension publication helps farmers and agribusiness professionals choose the right type of steel tanks for the right purposes. Steel Tanks for Storing and Transporting Pesticides and Fertilizers (PPP-105) was written by a team of university and industry experts, including Fred Whitford, coordinator of Purdue Pesticide Programs. It covers a host of tank types and steel construction materials and how to select the best tanks depending on what needs to be stored or transported. “The material that works best depends on how you will use the tank,” Whitford said. “You need to select your tank’s construction material based on its compatibility with the material it will hold, how long you expect the tank to last, how much preventative maintenance you want to perform and how much you want to pay up front.” By Gary Truitt – Dec 19, 2013 Home Indiana Agriculture News Picking the Perfect Tank Previous articleEllspermann Visits Farm ShowNext articleBough Named to Leadership Role Gary Truitt Picking the Perfect Tank All three publications can be purchased from Purdue Extension’s The Education Store at https://www.the-education-store.com for $5 each.
