Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. FTSE 100 tracker funds have become very popular investments in recent years. This is because they offer diversified exposure to the UK stock market at an extremely low cost.But have FTSE 100 trackers actually been good investments? Let’s take a look at how much £5,000 invested in one five years ago would be worth today.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…FTSE 100 tracker returnsTwo of the most popular FTSE 100 tracker funds are the HSBC FTSE 100 Index and the Legal & General UK 100 Index Trust. You can find both on the Hargreaves Lansdown platform.Looking at the performance of the accumulation version of the HSBC fund (which reinvests dividends), it’s returned a total of -1.7% over the last five years. Meanwhile, the accumulation version of the Legal & General fund has returned a total of -0.5%. Averaging this out, you’re looking at a total return of -1.1% over the last five years.What this means is that had you invested £5k in a FTSE 100 tracker five years ago, your investment would now be worth around £4,945. And that’s before Hargreaves Lansdown’s platform fee of 0.45% per year.I think it’s fair to say this kind of return is quite disappointing.Could you do better?I realise the Footsie has been hit hard recently due to the coronavirus outbreak. So you could argue it’s not a great time to analyse the five-year performance of FTSE 100 tracker funds right now. However, I think it’s worth pointing out many other investments have performed far better over the last five years.For example, the Legal & General International Index Trust – which tracks the FTSE World (excluding UK) Index – has returned about 45% over the last five years. That’s turned £5k into about £7.3k, excluding platform fees. And the Legal & General Global Technology Index – which tracks the global technology sector – has returned about 139%, turning £5k into nearly £12k, excluding fees.Similarly, in the actively-managed funds space, the highly-popular Fundsmith Equity has delivered a total return of about 106% over the last five years. This means a £5k investment would now be worth more than £10k. And Lindsell Train Global Equity, another popular actively-managed fund, has returned roughly 90%, turning the same amount into around £9.5k.Meanwhile, many individual UK stocks that aren’t in the FTSE 100 have also generated brilliant returns for investors over the last five years. For example, online fashion retailer Boohoo has risen approximately 820% over the last half-decade, turning £5k into roughly £46k. And video game specialist Keywords Studios has risen about 830%, turning £5k into about £47k.It pays to diversifyUltimately, the key takeaway here is it can pay to diversify your investments. Instead of just owning a FTSE 100 tracker, it could be a good idea to build a more diverse portfolio. Look for exposure to both international stocks and high-quality UK companies outside the FTSE 100 as well as inside it. This approach could give you a better overall chance of generating strong long-term returns from the stock market.If you’re interested in learning more about how to beat the FTSE 100, you’ll find plenty of information right here at The Motley Fool.

TAGSApopka Police Department Previous articleCookies and Milk with a Cop this morningNext articleThe basics of securing an auto loan Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Apopka Police Department welcomed three new officers to its force at a swearing-in ceremony at City Hall on Friday. The three new officers bring the APD roster up to 105 employees with three more positions to fill before the end of the fiscal year.“We are a family,” said APD Chief Michael McKinley to the new officers and their friends and family in attendance. “And now you are a part of that family. There are going to be some rough times, but we will always be there to support you.”“The Apopka Police Department is one of the finest, most professional, well-trained agencies in all of Central Florida,” said Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer before swearing-in the new officers. “They are knowledgeable of our community, which allows them to be effective for our residents. The citizens of Apopka love our public safety professionals.”Officer Christopher Clutter, 31, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida and worked for the Seminole County and Baker County Sheriff’s Offices as a narcotics detective.“My wife has family in the area,” he said. “Being a member of the APD is a great opportunity and it’s great to be near her family.”Clutter also expects to move to the Apopka area in the near future.Officer Oscar Mayorga, 20, graduated from Lake Brantley High School and Seminole State College in 2016.“I’ve always heard great things about this agency,” he said. “Even when I picked up the application, I felt welcomed. They introduced me to Lieutenant (Steve) Brick and treated me like I was part of a family.”Montoya lives in Altamonte Springs.Officer Gregory Smith, 31, graduated from Seminole State College. “I like Apopka,” I like the friendliness of the people here and I know and have interacted with a lot of the APD officers. I look forward to serving the community.”“I like Apopka,” he said. “I like the friendliness of the people here and I know and have interacted with a lot of the APD officers. I look forward to serving the community.”Smith lives in Deltona.Clutter was the fifth and final officer hired through a $625,000 federal Community Oriented Police Services (COPS) Hiring Program grant. The APD was budgeted for a total of five officers through the grant.McKinley pointed out the benefits his agency and the residents receive from a larger police force.“The growth the APD has experienced has expanded the criminal investigations and allowed us to clear more cases,” he said. “But the most important element is patrol squads. Our response times in the community are better, and we are catching in-progress crimes.” Please enter your comment! 2 COMMENTS Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here So someone thinks it is a conflict- of- interest for Jerry Demings to run for Orange Co. Mayor, since he is married to Val Demings, who is a Congress woman……???? Huh, what about Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell married to Elaine Chao, Trump’s cabinet member, who is the Secretary of Transporation? Or Trump’s son-in-law, Jared, as his advisor, or his daughter, Ivanka, and whatever it is she does at the White House? Anyway, you can always vote for John Mina for Orange Co. Sheriff, if you don’t like Jerry Demings , as I think Mina is going to run for Orange Co. Sheriff, since Demings is planning on running for Orange Co. Mayor……..talk about musical chairs!!!! Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 It seems as if our Apopks PD officers ought to live in the City of Apopka! They aren’t even in Orange County!

Previous Ministers didn’t do anything to introduce rules to allow for generic school uniforms despite having the power to do so. This change would clearly help hard pressed families,” Cllr Quinlivan suggested.According to the Sinn Féin party leader on the merged Limerick City and County Council, children from lower income families often miss out on school trips and extra-curricular activities simply because their families cannot afford to pay for them.“We have called for the regulation of voluntary contributions and the fact is, regardless of rules already in place, children are again often excluded when their parents can’t pay by having lockers withheld and being prevented from accessing after-school activities and other events,” claimed Cllr Quinlivan.Ultimately, he said, voluntary contributions must be eradicated.“Schools should not be forced to plug the funding gap from the state by pressuring parents for extra cash. Sinn Féin has previously called for the removal of 23 per cent VAT on school ebooks and the government ignored it,” Cllr Quinlivan concluded.

Tina Richardson(CONCORD, N.C.) — A North Carolina woman has filed a $25,000 lawsuit against a Subway sandwich shop franchisee after he allegedly slapped her during a dispute over a sandwich.Elizabeth Hinson, who goes by the name Tina Richardson, went to a Subway owned by Kenneth Lancaster in Concord, North Carolina, on March 8 to get a Sesame-Ginger Glazed Chicken Wrap for an elderly woman when an argument ensued, according to the lawsuit filed in Rowan County on March 18.The elderly woman told Richardson the wrap did not appear like the picture on the flyer advertisement, nor tasted like ginger. Richardson returned to the Subway and asked for a refund, which the employee refused, according to the complaint.That’s when Lancaster appeared from the back and yelled expletives at her and told her to leave the store. Almost immediately after Richardson began recording the dispute with her cellphone, Lancaster approached Richardson and hit her, according to the complaint.Richardson shared the video on her Facebook page, and the post has garnered 2 million views, Bo Caudill, Richardson’s attorney, told ABC News.“When she did not get the wrap that she ordered, Ms. Richardson returned to Subway expecting a simple refund. Instead, she received a slap in the face,” Caudill told ABC News in a statement. “The violent conduct depicted in the video is disgraceful and deplorable, and should greatly concern everyone who eats at Subway and expects Subway stores and their owners to provide a safe, family-friendly environment, free of sexist discrimination and violence.”Subway, on behalf of Lancaster, released a statement expressing regret for the incident, and saying it does not meet the company’s standards.“Providing an excellent guest experience is important to us and our expectation is that everyone is treated with respect,” Subway said in a statement to Charlotte ABC affiliate WSOC earlier this month. “The local team has reached out to the guest to apologize on behalf of the restaurant as this incident is inconsistent with the high standards Subway restaurants requires of its Franchise Owners. The Franchise Owner expressed his regrets for how he handled the situation.”Caudill disputed that the company had reached out to Richardson directly.Richardson is seeking compensation for physical and emotional harm.“He doesn’t get to treat anybody like that. … Get somebody into Subway to treat people with respect and fix problems when you’re wrong,” Richardson told WSOC. “That’s what you’re supposed to do.”ABC News’ efforts to reach Lancaster for comment were unsuccessful.

Where can I begin with Sex on the Beat? With the beat. The night is all about the music: a fusion of dirty electro, underground house and, essentially, incredible beats – a sharp contrast to the usual array of RnB and cheese that dominates student nights at Filth. This week, the music progressed increasingly further from the Sex on the Beat regular DJs’ dirty electro house, introducing more accessible ‘standard’ Drum n Bass and House tracks (did I hear Pendulum at Sex on the Beat?!) with guest DJs from Radio1.This didn’t, however, destroy the originality of Sex on the Beat. It merely meant the night transformed and altered as the hours flew by. From electro to house to breaks to drum n bass, there was no stopping the movement. The resident DJs Sam Frasier and Darren (aka Dee Styles), aim to ensure that this diversity and variety is maintained at the Sex on the Beat: “the ethos of the night is to educate the crowd with a variety of house music that will be pleasing to everyone’s ears…we aim to cater for everyone’s musical tastes.”But the wonderful thing about Sex on the Beat isn’t just the beat…it’s the crowd. Wednesday saw a mix of Oxford and Brookes students all together for the same purpose: ‘raving’ the night away. Glow bands were given out on the door and with the usual array of funky outfits, a bit of glow paint (demonstrating the growing ‘nu rah-ve’ culture) and a few pairs of sunglasses here and there, it was a colourful eclectic picture of clubbers. Last Wednesday certainly demonstrated this and it ensured that Sex on the Beat will be a dominant feature of student clubbing from now on. Unlike normal student club nights, there’s no need to start queuing at some un-godly hour of 8.30pm (did I hear you say Bridge?), because it’s open until the early hours.The next Sex on the Beat will be on Wednesday 13th February: a Valentine’s special on till 5am. Tickets will be available for this night at the Hobgoblin Pub on the Cowley Road, or via Facebook. Watch this space…Sex on the Beat could prove to be the best Beat in Oxford. by Catherine Molony

Dear Friends,City Council on Thursday approved the first reading of an ordinance that authorizes the city to pursue four properties at the Ninth Street gateway to Ocean City. The ordinance would be just a first step in the potential acquisition of some or all of the abandoned properties that are an eyesore greeting motorists driving into town. This measure demonstrates our commitment to preserving open space and beautifying this important part of Ocean City.I’ve asked ACT Engineers and the city team to organize two meetings on Saturday, Aug. 20, to let residents know about Ocean City’s 2016 bay dredging program. The first meeting will be held 11:30 a.m. in the Senior Center at the Ocean City Community Center to discuss the next dredging project covering Snug Harbor, Glen Cove and the entrance area of South Harbor. The second meeting will be held for the residents of the Nor’Easter Residential Marina community at Seventh Street and Pleasure Avenue at 1 p.m., also at the Senior Center. Letters mailed to all residents of these affected neighborhoods explain the meeting and relevant aspects of the dredging program in more detail.Finally, I’d like to encourage everybody to sign up for storm alerts by telephone, text and e-mail. As always, I hope that these will rarely be necessary, but it’s important to be aware and prepared. Many of you already receive telephone alerts, but adding a cell phone to our Code Red system will allow you to receive text messages when the National Weather Service issues “warnings” about approaching weather events. This database will never be used for anything but emergency alerts. To sign up, visit ocnj.us/oem.I hope everyone has a great weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorCheck on the latest project updates and sign up for email alerts.
