The FTSE 250 is often overlooked by many investors who are considering which shares to purchase within their Stocks and Shares ISA. Although the FTSE 100 could produce high returns in the long run, the FTSE 250 may offer a relatively favourable investment outlook.The mid-cap index offers surprisingly strong income prospects, as well as greater international diversity than many investors realise. Since it currently appears to offer good value for money, now could be the right time to purchase a diverse range of FTSE 250 shares for the long term.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…Income potentialWhile the FTSE 100’s dividend yield of 4.4% is higher than the FTSE 250’s yield of 3%, the mid-cap index could offer a sound income outlook. Around 20% of its members currently have dividend yields that are above the FTSE 100’s income return. This suggests that investors may be able to build a diverse portfolio of mid-cap income shares that has a combined yield of above 5%, or even 6%.In many cases, FTSE 250 members offer strong dividend growth potential. Therefore, over the long run, they may be able to deliver impressive income returns that make the index a worthwhile place to invest for income-seekers.International exposureThe FTSE 100 is often viewed as a global index, since two-thirds of its revenue is generated from outside the UK. While the FTSE 250 has greater exposure to the UK than the large-cap index, it still produces around half of its sales from international markets. Therefore, the FTSE 250 may offer greater international diversity than many investors realise.At a time when the UK faces a period of political and economic uncertainty, the FTSE 250 may offer diversification benefits to investors. This could help to reduce their overall risk, as well as enable them to access the faster growth rates of emerging economies such as China and India.Return prospectsThe FTSE 100 may have recorded an impressive annualised total return of 9% since its inception in 1984, but the FTSE 250 has a stronger track record. Its total returns since inception in 1992 are around 11% per annum, which suggests that it offers greater long-term price appreciation potential than its larger peer.This is perhaps unsurprising, since smaller businesses generally have greater scope to grow their earnings than larger companies that have more established positions in their respective markets. As such, the trend of the FTSE 250 outperforming the FTSE 100 could continue, which may make the mid-cap index more attractive to investors who have a long-term view.Certainly, the outcome of Brexit negotiations could have an impact on the FTSE 250’s performance due to its exposure to the UK economy. But with many of the index’s members appearing to offer wide margins of safety at the present time, now could be the right time to buy a range of mid-cap stocks in a Stocks and Shares ISA.

I start with the “Architectural Association Press”, I go towards Lewerents and I will arrive to Masrampinyo. There was a 1989 book, “Sigurd Lewerents 1885-1975. “The Dilemma of Classicism” published by the “Architectural Association Press” with its cover made of an intriguing impression of a wall fragment from one of Lewerents churches made of sandpaper.

Or, is it speculative because expects venture from that quite architecture that finishes being rough and unlabeled? Is it difficult to swallow, like some alcohols?

This is the paradox of a country where the political and the social are intertwined more and more closely. It is also characteristic of a form of everyday journalism at ground level, far removed from ideology and power games. Reiter has taken a close interest in the prison system and police violence, she has spoken to autistic children and campaigners promoting alternative policies of fighting drug abuse… She has given a voice to a young Armenian attacked by nationalists and to the police officers who rescued him, suggesting that behind the stories of bloodshed and hate reported in the media, there are others of “decency, hope and friendship”. It was her investigations into the political prisoners held after the Bolotnaya Square protests and police violence in Kazan that won her the Politprosvet award. It was other stories that brought her problems. In September 2012, she was summoned by the FSB security service for questioning about an interview about torture in Chechnya, as a witness in an investigation into the chairman of the Committee Against Torture. In March this year, Reiter and most of her colleagues at Lenta.ru, left the previously independent news site after it was abruptly taken under Kremlin control.
