1. An encore careerStarting another career near retirement age is not an uncommon thing anymore as people are living longer. You have decades of experience in your field and there are those out there that can benefit greatly from your knowledge, or perhaps you might enjoy something in a new field. If you aren’t too keen on the idea of a nine to five again, consulting and freelance work are both great ways to keep a nice cash flow on your own schedule.2. Monetize a hobbyEveryone has something that they love doing, and now that you are retiring you’ll have even more time to do it. With all that time, suddenly you are making too much food, or growing too many vegetables and flowers, or perhaps you have made too many custom pieces in your workshop. There is no reason you couldn’t sell off the excess for a little extra money. Never let the fact that you enjoy something make you feel like you can’t earn some cash on the side for doing it, and never let the money make you stop loving it.3. Sell off assetsOne of the best things that you can do when you retire is downsize. Whether you plan to travel less or a lot more, chances are that you have a bunch of goods laying around that you aren’t going to need anymore. You may have thousands of dollars in collectibles or a second vehicle that you aren’t going to need. They aren’t serving a purpose in their material state, so why not sell them and turn them into cash?4. Buying and renting propertyThe United States real estate market has been an extremely safe investment given the current overall uncertain climate globally. Real Estate has always been a rather safe investment and if you have the existing capital it can be a great way to supplement retirement income. Buying a rental property for retirement income is not completely without risk, but it can pay off for many.5. Take a hard look at your investmentsThis isn’t very unconventional and shouldn’t just be done by retirees but is worth mention as too many get comfortable with their investments. Take some time to review all of your savings and investments and make adjustments as needed. You spent your whole life making money and saving, now you have to make sure your savings are making you money. Look at your investment portfolio for any poorly performing investments and reinvest them elsewhere. 56SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Details
26 November 2009Durban’s R3.1-billion Moses Mabhida Stadium is complete and ready to host the world’s football stars and thousands of fans who are expected to descend on the city for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™.The 56 000-seater stadium, which took 32 months to build, has created 26 000 jobs and changed the look and feel of the city.“This world-class engineering and architectural feat is a true example of what can be achieved by team work, the sharing of skills and the collaboration between public and private enterprise,” said the head of Durban/eThekwini’s 2010 programme, Julie May Ellingson.“There is no doubt that each and every person who has worked on this project can stand proud and know that they have made their mark in history.”The stadium is scheduled to host five group matches, one second round match, one quarter final and a semi-final match during the World Cup.‘Stadium for the people’It features a “sky car” able to carry 25 people at a time to its highest point, an adventure walk up 550 steps to the southern side of the 106-metre arch, and a bungee swing across the pitch. Twenty-four 24 shops which will serve visitors on non-match days.This, Ellingson said, would further help maintain the stadium’s financial sustainability.eThekwini Mayor Obed Mlaba said this was a great moment for the city: “It is a moment that fills me with a pride I know is shared by all the people of Durban. Because this is a stadium for the people, just as baba Moses was a man for – and of – the people.“The 2010 Fifa World Cup was the spur, but one of our main priorities was to build a multi-functional venue that would be the envy of other cities and benefit the people of Durban for years to come,” he said.The stadium’s first official match, scheduled for Sunday afternoon, has been sold out. The Durban World Cup venue will host the local derby between AmaZulu and Maritzburg United, and all 22 000 tickets have already been snapped up.Source: BuaNews

At the NJS Francis Building in Grand Turk, there will be pomp and pageantry as the country records, even more ceremoniously today its first female Premier in Hon. Sharlene Robinson. It has been just over two months of closure for the honourable house, but at this first sitting of the first meeting of the first session of the 11th Legislature of the House of Assembly, it is expected to be capacity seating and among those observing the proceedings, will be visiting dignitaries, a contingent from The Bahamas Government, led by Deputy Prime Minister, Philip Davis. Reverend Derek Hamilton is scheduled to open the House this morning at promptly 10am in prayer, immediately following will be the Clerk of the House with the Proclamation. The oath of allegiance happens next for both the new Speaker of the House of Assembly, Hon Dwayne Taylor and his deputy, Hon Karen Malcolm. This oath will also be taken by the other House members, which number 19; 15 elected and four appointed, two by the Governor. Joan Bassett will sing the National Anthem; Michael Dean will sing the National Song; Barbara Johnson will sing God bless this House and the Governor will deliver the Speech from the Throne, which is the PDM Administration’s plan for the country and promise to the people of what it intends to accomplish over the next four years. Remarks will come from the new Premier, Hon Sharlene Robinson… from the new Leader of the Opposition in the House, Hon Washington Misick and there will be opportunity for each member to speak in the two minute speeches item on the agenda. Today, work finally begins for the PDM, which won in a landslide victory at the polls on General Election day, which was exactly two weeks ago on December 15. Constitutionally, this opening had to happen within 15 days of the results of that national polling and it means the Turks and Caicos will start the year 2017 with a new party in charge of country affairs. The nation resoundingly voted for the ‘change’ the PDM pitched; 10 seats went to the People’s Democratic Movement while 5 seats remained with the PNP. The Opening of Parliament will be carried live on National Radio, on television – PTV8 we are told and live streaming online.

The report claimed that staff did not show up for work, that the returned CEO was a major problem and that the Premier was disregarding issues at the Board, leaving matters unresolved. However, in a brief statement to Magnetic Media, Premier and Finance Minister, Sharlene Robinson called the report mischievous, adding that Minister of Health, Edwin Astwood and his Board have her full support. Minister Astwood reported to the Premier that the Facebook post was not true and that the process to resolve issues at the once embattled NHIB, are progressing. In 2016, NHIB staff staged sick outs, its CEO was put on leave, financial deficiencies were to the tune of over $2M and there had been a Cabinet mandate to review its Operations. Since then, recommendations of the Chief Internal Auditor were heard and are being carried out, says Cabinet from mid-May. #MagneticMediaNews#NHIB#nostrikeatNHIB Prominent Ministry of Education officer is now the interim boss at National Health Insurance Board Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
