He will begin the role after the team’s limited-overs tours to India and the UAE.“The World Cup is an iconic tournament and we believe the addition of Ricky to the coaching staff for the 2019 event will provide the Australian team with a competitive advantage,” said Belinda Clark, interim EGM of high performance. “Ricky’s success, knowledge and experience in limited overs cricket as both a player and coach will be hugely beneficial for our playing group.“[He] will assist Justin across a number of key areas including strategy and game-plan, but he will also work closely with and mentor the batting group as they prepare for the English conditions.”Ponting has taken interim coaching roles with the side before, most recently during the ODI series in England. Langer, who described his former team-mate as “driven”, was all praise for him.“Ricky knows what’s required to win World Cups, and I know he will be a valuable mentor to not just the batting group, but the broader squad as we focus our attention on defending our World Cup title,” the coach said. “He has an impressive understanding of the game, he knows what’s required to prepare and perform at the elite level, and we can’t wait for him to get started working with the squad.”An “excited” Ponting said, “I’ve enjoyed my previous short-term roles with the ODI and T20 teams, but World Cups take on a whole different meaning for me. I have enormous confidence in the players available to the selectors and know we will be as tough to beat as any team in this year’s World Cup.”Australia, the defending champions, open their campaign on 1 June, against Afghanistan.Also Read: Ponting concerned over Bancroft, Smith revelations on ball tampering FinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatter|SponsoredSponsoredMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Week|SponsoredSponsoredDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily Funny|SponsoredSponsoredYourBump15 Actors That Hollywood Banned For LifeYourBump|SponsoredSponsoredPost FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredDefinitionTime Was Not Kind To These 28 CelebritiesDefinition|SponsoredSponsored Cricket WTC Final 2021: India vs New Zealand Full Squad, Schedule, Live Streaming, Date, Time, Venue all you need to know World Test Championship final WTC Final Day 3 LIVE Score: Latham, Conway provide slow start, India in search of wickets; NZ 20/0 (13 ovs)- Follow Live Updates Euro 2020, Switzerland vs Turkey LIVE: Switzerland to punish hapless Turkey; Follow Live Updates WTC Final 2021 LIVE: 5 Ways to watch India vs New Zealand World Test Championship LIVE Streaming for free Previous articleIPL most powerful sports platform for Indian sponsors: POWA indexNext articleUEFA president Aleksander Čeferin re-elecetd for new four-year term Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. In a shock move this morning, the Bank of England (BoE) has made an ‘emergency’ interest rate cut, slashing UK interest rates by 0.5% from 0.75% to 0.25%.The rate cut, which policymakers hope will bolster the economy in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, means that UK interest rates are back to their lowest level in history again (the same level that rates were cut to in 2016 after the Brexit vote).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…Here, I’ll explain what the drop in interest rates means for UK savers and investors.Bad news for saversFor savers, the rate cut is definitely bad news. Interest rates on savings accounts and Cash ISAs were already abysmally low (well below the rate of UK inflation in many cases), and they’re now likely to drop lower due to the fact that banks use the BoE base rate as a reference point for saving account rates.At this stage, it’s still too early to know exactly how much the interest rates on savings accounts will fall by. It may take a few days or even weeks for banks to adjust their rates. However, sooner or later, interest rates on savings products will be lowered, meaning savers will receive a lower return on their money.Of course, if you’ve a fixed-rate savings product, such as a one- or two-year fixed-rate saving account, you’ll be protected from the rate cut, for now. However, when it comes time to renew your savings term, you’ll most likely find the new interest rate is significantly lower than your previous one.All things considered, it’s a tough time for UK savers at the moment. If your money is sitting in cash savings earning a pittance, you’re likely to be going backwards financially once you factor in the effects of inflation.Good news for investorsFor stock market investors, however, an interest rate cut is generally good news. There are a few reasons why. For starters, lower interest rates are a positive development for most businesses (not banks) as they lower the cost of borrowing. Lower borrowing costs can boost profits, which, in turn, can boost share prices.Secondly, when interest rates on savings accounts drop, many people look for alternative ways to boost their wealth. The stock market can be a beneficiary. More money flowing into stocks also tends to push share prices up.Note that both the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 indexes are up today on the back of the rate cut. Finally, when interest rates fall, the dividend yields offered by stocks become more valuable. For example, if savings account interest rates drop from 1% to 0.5%, a 3.5% yield from a high-quality FTSE 100 stock such as Unilever suddenly looks even more attractive. Again, this can push share prices higher, due to higher demand for dividend stocks.So, while today’s BoE interest rate cut is disastrous news for cash savers, it’s not bad news for everyone. If you’re invested in the stock market, there’s a chance you could benefit.last_img read more

Blessings on you both, Chaz 9 COMMENTS October 7, 2018 at 1:22 pm InspirationBy Don LindseyOn Tuesday, my wife Tammy will celebrate her birthday.  October 9th has always been a big day for me with my nephew Jamie turning 34 on the same day.  You’ll notice how I left out which birthday it will be for Tammy, knowing how women are about announcing their age, I figured it would be suicidal to let that information out.A tradition that I practice every year is to write her a letter wishing her the happiest of birthdays and to also thank her for everything that she does for our little family.  While I’ll never run out of ways to express my love and gratitude for my wife, I thought that it would be a nice change to make my feelings a little more public this year and so this column will be dedicated to expressing my admiration for her loving presence in my life and the lives of our children and parents.I first met Tammy when I was about 12 years old.  I lived across the street from one of her cousins, and every now and again, her family would come up to Ohio from here to visit. I still remember the first time I saw her.  She was leaning over the partial wall of my friend’s front porch staring at me.  I tried to not look at her because I didn’t want to show how enamored I was with the pretty blonde girl who was looking in my direction.  What is important to note here is that at 12 I wasn’t interested in girls yet.  For me, sports were king.  It was all I watched and all I wanted to do and the only time I was really happy was when I was on a baseball diamond, basketball court or playing some game with my friends around the neighborhood.My friend was playing king of the hill with Tammy’s brother’s, and after a quick introduction and “nice to meet you” pleasantries, I walked on to where ever I was heading.  I recall turning back and still seeing her looking in my direction. What surprised me was how I was feeling about it.  For weeks after the encounter (if that’s what you want to call it), I could not get her pretty little face out of my head.  I would find ways to try and talk to my friend about her without drawing too much attention to the fact that I liked her.It’s funny how the mind works.  I can tell you every detail about the first time that I saw her but the two years following that are a blur to me, and in those two years the friendship that Tammy and I forged would go on to be one of the greatest things that has ever happened in my life.  I wish that I had more details on our conversations other than the memories from having to work off hundreds of dollars in phone bills from the hours and hours of time we spent talking to each other.  One thing that I do know is that by the time my friend invited me to take a trip here to see his family, Tammy and myself were anxious to see each other.That trip turned out to be the best vacation that I’ve ever been on. We stayed in the house that I live in now.  Tammy and I shared our first kiss in the room that is now our bedroom, and a trip with her family to Wet and Wild was one of the single greatest days of my life.  It seemed as if we held hands all day and the relaxed feeling I had around her, the ability to be myself was nice because I had always felt the need to be more as is the case with most 14-year-old kids. She disarmed me right away though and going back to Ohio was not an easy thing to do.We considered ourselves a couple, but as time went on, we both realized that the thousand plus miles that separated us made it too hard to keep a relationship going.  We stayed great friends and kept up when we could, but we were both growing up and as a result, couldn’t keep in touch as much as we would have liked.I got a job and looked to find my place in the world and she did the same.  After a while, she got married and had three wonderful children.  With this knowledge, I never thought that we could be together even though I had always wished that things would have turned out differently.  Fast forward to 2011 and the two of us started talking again.  Her first marriage was falling apart, and she was looking to move forward for herself and her children.  I wasn’t sure how it would work but once we confessed that we still cared deeply for each other, I had the overwhelming feeling to see where this was taking us and that turned out to be the greatest decision I’ve ever made.I started making trips down here in August of 2011 and quickly made friends with the kids.  I didn’t know it at the time, but this was a test.  She needed to see how I would be around her children.  Fact of the matter is that she would have been fine never being in another relationship and was only giving me a chance based on our history and her feelings for me.  I fell in love with the kids, passing the test and cementing my place in their lives. A year later, on November 17, 2012 we were married on a beach in Fort Pierce and while marriage is a tough road at times, we’ve stayed close relying on our love and friendship to get through some of the worst things we’ve ever faced.As I said earlier, I could never run out of words to show my appreciation for my wife and even though I’m writing this for her, I’m still not off the hook for writing a hand-written letter for her birthday so I’ll end this column with a short note to the woman who’s changed my life for the better in so many ways.Dear Tammy,  Thank you for never giving up on us.  Thank you for being the mother that you are to the children, the wife that you are to me and for being the human being that you are in general. I love you and hope that you have the happiest birthday yet. Love,Donnie.

Florida Bill Would Repeal Ethanol Requirement

first_imgHome Energy Florida Bill Would Repeal Ethanol Requirement Florida Bill Would Repeal Ethanol Requirement SHARE SHARE A bill has been introduced in the Florida legislature that would repeal the state’s Renewable Fuel Standard Act.Currently, the Florida law requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9-10 percent ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume. Legislation to repeal that requirement was considered by the Florida House Regulatory Affairs Committee on Friday and Pensacola automotive technician and radio host Bobby Likis was there.However, Likis was only able to say that he opposed the bill before the hearing had to be ended for lawmakers to go to the floor. “I’ve answered over 100,000 questions live on air, many of which have addressed the ethanol issue with regard to engine damage,” said Likis, host of the syndicated Car Clinic Network. “I strongly oppose the bill.”Likis, who is a strong advocate for ethanol, says he is prepared to do what he can to prevent the legislation from passing in Florida.Also testifying against the bill was Patrick Ahlm with Alginol Biofuels, an industrial biotechnology company working towards the production of fuel from algae headquartered in southwest Florida. “We’ve raised $190 million since we were founded in 2006 by Florida residents,” said Ahlm. “Our focus right now is on operating our pilot scale facility in Ft. Myers.”Alhm said they are looking toward a commercial facility. “Our technology does not require farm land, food crops or fresh water,” he said. “We respect the issues around mandates and traditional ethanol but when we go into the investment community, this sends a very bad signal about continuing to grow in Florida.”Because the committee ran out of time, the bill sponsored in the Florida House by Rep. Matt Gaetz of Fort Walton Beach will be carried over to the next meeting.Source: Cindy Zimmerman at www.domesticfuel.com Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 25, 2013 Previous articlePurdue Announces New Head of Department of Food ScienceNext articleSeed Consultants 3/26/2013 Market Closing Comment with Gary Wilhelmi Andy Eubank Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
