Maximise Savings for Your Children’s Future With the Newly Launched Junior Savings Account or JISA

In an uncertain economic climate, financial planning is more important than ever and for anyone with a family, saving for the future has become a top priority. Giving your children a solid financial base insures they have the best possible start in life, whether they want to pay for driving lessons, embark on a course of higher education or choose another path.

Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) are excellent ways of accumulating tax-free interest on your money but age restrictions limit their availability: cash ISAs are limited to the over 16s, stocks and share ISAs to the over 18s. However, recent changes in legislation have seen the introduction of the Junior ISA (JISA): a savings and investment scheme designed for the under 16s.

Who is eligible?

The Junior ISA was introduced on the 1st November, 2011. Designed to replace the older Child Trust Funds, those eligible for the JISA are:

Children born on or after 3rd January, 2011

Under-18s born before September, 2002

Any child not qualifying for a Child Trust Fund, born between 1st September 2002 and 3rd January 2011.

Each account requires a single registered contact, usually a parent, or person with parental responsibility, who maintains the JISA on behalf of the child.

Unfortunately, children who already have a Child Trust Fund are not eligible for a Junior ISA (this restriction may change in the future, allowing funds to be transferred from the CTF).

How does the JISA work?

The Junior ISA subscription limit is 3,600, which means contributions to the account cannot exceed this amount per year (from 2013, the limit will increase to take inflation into account). Anyone can contribute to the account and neither you nor your child will be taxed on the interest it generates.

The contents of the JISA will not be available to the beneficiary child until he or she turns 18. At this point, the JISA will be converted into an adult ISA – or, alternatively, your child can withdraw the money to use for whatever purposes they have in mind.

In much the same way as adult ISAs, the JISA falls into two categories:

Cash JISAs work in the same way as a savings account at a bank or building society. Money paid in grows as tax-free interest is added to it.

Stocks and shares JISAs involve money invested on the stock market in shares and bonds. While gains may be significant, there is the added risk that their value may drop.

While a child is restricted to one cash and one stocks and shares JISA, any combination of funds, within the subscription limit, can be used across accounts.

Although JISAs have a lower subscription limit than adult ISAs (which currently stand at 10,680), they can generate can deliver substantial returns. A 300 per month investment over 18 years would grow to 114,876, assuming a 6% annual return. It’s worth remembering however, like adult ISAs, the value of potential return can fall and it’s important to monitor any savings regularly.

Chicago Pediatric Dentist Explains Advantages of Early Orthodontic Treatment

Chicagos leading pediatric dentist, Dr. Kevin L. Boyd MS, DDS, explains how early orthodontic treatment contributes to the health of a child. Dr. Boyd focuses on dentistry that contributes to the overall well being of children. His dental office in Chicago emphasizes teaching healthy eating patterns and proper oral health practices for children and families. Dr. Boyd has been practicing pediatric dentistry in Chicagos Lincoln Park area for more than 20 years. He has provided hundreds of children, with successful orthodontic treatment, and continues to be a leading clinician offering orthodontic treatment in Chicago.

It has become increasingly clear to the orthodontic and pediatric dentists in Chicago and across that nation that problems of all sorts, oral health inclusive, can be prevented if a healthy oral environment is present during a child’s formative stages of growth and development.

Pediatric dentists and Orthodontists widely accept that early orthodontic treatment are useful for correcting crossbites and making room for permanent teeth. Early orthodontic treatment can contribute to avoidance of more extensive corrective treatment as the child reaches adulthood. It can also contribute to a healthier self-esteem.

However, it’s also important to note another reason (in addition to correcting crossbites and making room for permanent teeth) why many orthodontists, pediatric dentists and general dentists who provide orthodontic services for children, recommend expansion of childrens palates when they are young. An adequately expanded palate provides an ideal environment for the tongue to rest The tongue is in rest when one is not using it for eating or talking. If the palate is too short and too narrow to accommodate the resting tongue, deviant swallowing and thrusting patterns can develop that can also lead to other problems such as:

1.) Orthodontic relapse in adolescence/adulthood
2.) Inability to close the lips at rest
3.) Chronic mouth breathing and other respiratory problems
4.) Susceptibility to developing a long facial appearance

Straight teeth can indeed be an indicative component of a healthy and attractive smile. Historically, a desire for straight teeth has been the primary reason for a person to seek orthodontic care. There is now, however, empirical and scientific evidence to support that, in addition to providing a good foundation for straight teeth, an adequately developed (i.e., expanded) palate can also provide a good foundation for optimal resting position of the tongue and commensurate healthy swallowing and nasal breathing patterns. Hopefully, early orthodontic treatment will someday be seen as, not only a means by which we can help a child have straight teeth, but also, as a treatment option that can help promote a normal resting tongue posture and healthy nasal breathing.

Facebook offers the dummy’s guide to mobile advertising

Facebook Inc’s mobile advertising success offers a ray of hope for Internet companies trying to make money within the confines of the smartphone’s small screen.

The social network’s 75 percent surge in mobile ad revenue in a span of just three months not only doused skepticism on Wall Street and Madison Avenue about Facebook’s business prospects, some say it could serve as a how-to guide for other Web companies navigating a world where the phone and tablet have fast become the screens of choice.

Facebook’s “Newsfeed” ads, which inject marketing messages straight into a user’s content stream and are tailored for mobile devices, were the stars behind the social network’s stunning numbers on Wednesday.

“You’re going to see a lot of companies transitioning and trying to emulate this model because it’s working so well. That’s why last night was a true watershed moment,” said Ben Schachter, an analyst at Macquarie Research.

Internet company executives have long been concerned that mobile advertising is inherently less lucrative than traditional desktop PC advertising, due to the smartphone’s limited screen size and possible consumer resistance to a flood of ads on their devices.

Companies from Google Inc and Yahoo Inc to upstarts such as Snapchat are searching for the right formula to monetize mobile services. While Google has developed a mobile ad business generating an estimated $10 billion a year in revenue, it remains much smaller and less lucrative than Google’s desktop search advertising. Analysts expect Google to generate $60 billion in annual revenue this year.

That wholesale exploration of “native ads” – or marketing messages intended to blend with a users’ personal content, rather than stand out as an ad – has met with varying success.

Twitter, which pioneered the concept of the in-stream ad even before Facebook, may also be well-positioned to benefit from mobile ads. “Sponsored” messages now pop up abruptly in the middle of streams of tweets, but analysts say the frequency is much lower on Facebook newsfeeds.

More than half of the privately held company’s revenue will come from mobile ads this year, reckons Clark Fredricksen, at industry research firm eMarketer.

Some are just getting into the game. This week, LinkedIn Corp, the network for business professionals, rolled out in-stream ads on mobile and PC versions of its service. Yahoo has experimented with similar types of ads, and acquired blogging hub Tumblr for $1.1 billion in May, in part to jumpstart efforts at developing new formats.

But it’s Facebook, which a year ago had zero mobile revenue, that has most aggressively promoted its mobile advertising business to Madison Avenue – with seeming success.

“Compared to other companies, nobody has come right out and said mobile is our sole focus now,” said Angela Steele, CEO of Ansible, part of advertising holding company IPG. “Facebook put all their eggs in one basket.”


One longstanding question has been how much tolerance consumers have for ads that disrupt their stream of content. Facebook said it has steadily increased the number of ads in the news stream without noticing a drop in user satisfaction.

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday that, on average, ads now account for 5 percent or one in 20 “stories” in the newsfeed. That ratio could now provide a baseline for calculating success, prompting other Web companies to raise the frequency of ads in their streams.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if other companies would look at that and follow suit,” said Ansible’s Steele.

Hussein Fazal, the CEO of AdParlor, which manages advertising campaigns on Facebook, guesses that the social network must have gradually opened the spigot, gauging user reaction and adjusting the stream all the while.

They seemed to have hit on the right formula, but it’s one that differs across platforms, he said.

“The reason Facebook can do it is, the rest of the content that’s there is so engaging that you don’t mind one out of every 20 ads,” he said. “If you have a newsfeed that’s not so engaging, and you keep seeing ads, then it doesn’t work.”

Plus, the more ads in the stream, the less users will click on them, which can dampen ad prices, he added.

Facebook’s seeming success on mobile devices contrasts with Google’s more gradual improvement in that area. The No. 1 Internet search engine has gradually managed to narrow declines in its overall ad rates from the mobile effect, but last quarter they reversed and went down again, disappointing investors.

Google has avoided news stream ads entirely in its Google+ social network. Instead, its mix of mobile search ads, video ads and innovative formats such as “click-to-call” have delivered what RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney estimates is a $10 billion annualized run rate for its mobile business, about four times as much as Facebook.

But mobile has driven down the average cost of Google ads, and some industry watchers consider the transition a long-term threat to the search giant. But other analysts say recent changes to the way it sells ads to marketers, blurring the distinction between the mobile and PC, could help bolster rates.

The Concert Of Europe – Did It Ensure Peace

The Concert of Europe Did It Ensure Peace?

By the time Napoleon had been exiled to St. Helena in 1815, Europe had been at war almost perpetually since 1792.

Napoleons conquests had spread the doctrines of liberalism and nationalism through most of Europe, leading to the overthrow of several monarchies.
The victors of the Napoleonic Wars wanted to restore Europe to the status quo that existed before 1789, reversing the liberal and nationalistic doctrines spread by Napoleons armies.

For a time, the Concert of Europe achieved some success. In Spain (1820) and in Italy (1822), it crushed rebellions that were intent on establishing constitutional governments. Both of these outcomes enhanced the Concerts prestige, as it demonstrated its capacity to enforce the territorial settlements of the Congress of Vienna.

However, in the longer term, the Concert of Europes early successes faded as the unified coalition against Napoleon was replaced by increasing political and economic discord within the group. When revolutions broke out in South America during the 1820s, Great Britain refused to support action against the Spanish colonies. She was afraid that, if the rebellions were ended by force, it would lose profitable trading opportunities with Spain.

In the end this division within the Concert of Europe became moot as the United States issued the Monroe Doctrine in 1823. The Doctrine permitted European Powers to keep their existing colonies in the New World. However, it clearly stated that the establishment of new colonies or military intervention in the Americas would be seen as acts of aggression, which would be met by US intervention.

More significantly, diverging national interests led to a series of conflicts between the members of the Concert. Britain went to war with Russia (1853-1856), Prussia went to war against Austria (1866) and Prussia defeated France in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871).

Despite these failures, the Concert of Europe (also known as the Congress System) did achieve some successes. Through the Congress of Berlin (1878), the Concert of Europe completed the reorganization of the various Balkan states. Romania, Serbia and Montenegro all gained full independence while Austria-Hungary gained control over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

On the surface, the Congress of Berlin appeared to stabilize Europe. However, Austrias control over Bosnia and Herzegovina provoked tension with Russian nationalists who saw both countries as lying within Russias sphere of influence. Because Germany was now so closely aligned with Austrian interests in the Balkans, it also became the object of intense animosity from Russian nationalists and supporters of Pan Slavism.

In the end, the Concert of Europe failed to ensure long term peace. In the several years preceding World War I, it effectively ceased to function, replaced by a series of competing alliances. These opposing alliances contributed significantly to the onset of World War I.
