As someone who writes about retirement planning a lot, I'm often asked whether it pays to take advantage of a 401(k) plan if there's one available. One of the best things about 401(k)s is that they allow you to sock away much more money on an annual basis than IRAs. Traditional 401(k) contributions go in tax-free, allowing you to shield some present-day income from the IRS.

The IT asset disposition market has been witnessing significant growth over the past years, mainly owing to regulatory compliances, awareness of conserving the environment, and the growing need to prevent data breaches.

The IT asset disposition service providers use advanced software/solutions for the complete sanitization of any device with data to ensure the complete destruction of data. The specialized software and appliances required for this process are used by an experienced IT asset disposition service provider, which provide certification that the data was sanitized to common industry standards. The IT asset disposition market for servers to register highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026 The IT asset disposition market for servers is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period. The widespread use of internet and social media applications, as well as the introduction of new technologies such as software-defined networking and virtualization, give rise to the increased usage of servers and data centers worldwide. The surge in data breaches has forced data center providers to dispose of data and equipment before decommissioning them. Thus, a data center disposes of servers that are no longer in use with the help of IT asset disposition service providers.

These statements are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including SFL management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in the Company’s records and other data available from third parties. Although SFL believes that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond its control, SFL cannot give assurance that it will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or intentions. Important factors that, in the Company’s view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward looking statements include the strength of world economies, fluctuations in currencies and interest rates, general market conditions including fluctuations in charter hire rates and vessel values, changes in demand in the markets in which the Company operates, changes in demand resulting from changes in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ petroleum production levels and worldwide oil consumption and storage, developments regarding the technologies relating to oil exploration, changes in market demand in countries which import commodities and finished goods and changes in the amount and location of the production of those commodities and finished goods, increased inspection procedures and more restrictive import and export controls, changes in the Company’s operating expenses, including bunker prices, dry-docking and insurance costs, performance of its charterers and other counterparties with whom the Company deals, the impact of any restructuring of the counterparties with whom the Company deals, including the restructuring of Seadrill Limited, timely delivery of vessels under construction within the contracted price, changes in governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, potential liability from pending or future litigation, general domestic and international political conditions, including any changes to energy and environmental policies and changes attendant to trade conflicts, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events, the length and severity of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and its impact on the demand for commercial seaborne transportation and the condition of the financial markets and other important factors described from time to time in the reports filed by the Company with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. 1 Charter hire represents the amounts billable in the period by the Company and its associates for chartering out vessels and rigs.

A shirt worn by Napoleon during his exile on the island of Saint Helena in the south Atlantic and a letter he wrote there to practise his English have gone on display at a museum in Belgium ahead of an auction later this year in Britain. A silk scarf he wore around his head on the windswept British outpost is also on show, along with a walking stick made from a narwhal tooth, a rare and precious object from the exiled former French emperor's daily life on Saint Helena. The exhibition at the Battle of Waterloo memorial museum, near Brussels, is part of commemorations of the bicentenary of Napoleon's death aged 51 on May 5, 1821.
