3 UK dividend shares I’d buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA now to make a passive income

Posted On Jul 5 2021 by

first_img Buying UK dividend shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a sound means of obtaining a worthwhile passive income in 2021. It is possible to buy high-yielding shares that offer the potential for a rising income over the coming years.With that in mind, here are three income shares that could offer investment appeal today. Their mix of resilient financial performances, high yields and dividend growth prospects could provide a worthwhile income return during what may prove to be a challenging year for the UK economy.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…Making a passive income with UK dividend sharesBritish American Tobacco’s 8% dividend yield is one of the highest income returns available in the FTSE 100. As well as its generous passive income, the stock is a relatively resilient performer that has raised dividend payouts at a brisk pace for many years. Although cigarette volumes are falling, its plans to reduce leverage and invest in next-generation products could lead to rising profitability and a growing dividend.SSE’s dividend yield of around 5% is not among the highest available from UK shares at the present time. However, it could prove to be a robust means of generating an income as the company’s operations are less likely to be negatively impacted by a tough future for the UK economy. It also plans to raise dividends by at least as much as inflation over the next few years. This could become an increasingly attractive prospect if inflation rises in response to a loose monetary policy.Vodafone has also shown resilience in the current economic crisis. Its revenue has declined only modestly in recent quarters, which should mean it is able to maintain its dividend and current level of passive income. The stock currently yields over 6%. Its plans to embrace a digital future and the partnerships it has entered into in various markets could provide scope for a rising dividend.Limiting risks when investing in dividend sharesOf course, any of the above three companies, as well as all others, could experience difficult operating conditions. This may limit their capacity to pay dividends, which could harm an investor’s passive income prospects. This risk is perhaps more acute than it has been for many years due to the uncertain economic outlook. It could negatively impact on the performance of a wide range of companies, and limit their dividend growth capabilities over the coming years.Therefore, it is crucial to diversify among a large range of companies, sectors and geographies when seeking to make an income from UK shares. Doing so reduces an investor’s reliance on one or more companies, industries and regions to provide dividends. It also means that an income stream is likely to be less prone to ups and downs, which could make budgeting decisions easier in the current climate.

Straight From Our Nurses: How to Stay Healthy

Posted On Jun 19 2021 by

first_img Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! From Florida Hospital – ApopkaStaying healthy isn’t just about eating your vegetables. It’s also about juggling work and family life while taking time out for yourself. But if anyone knows how to make health a priority, it’s those whose jobs involve caring for others.So, we asked Ciara Lopez, RN, Bariatric care coordinator (pictured in photo, on left), Marissa McFadden, RN, Intensive Care Unit (pictured in photo, on right), Erica Corcoran, RN, Gastrointestinal care coordinator, and Sherry Joyce, RN, Pediatric Surgery, from across Florida Hospital, to give us a peek into their stay-healthy secrets.Get Outdoors“One of the newest thing I’ve started doing is running,” says Lopez. “It’s something that really helps me to relieve stress and something I can do anywhere. If I’m pressed for time I tell myself I can run a mile in less than 15 minutes. If I don’t have time, I’ll go for a short run instead. It’s really helped me to focus on myself.”“Something else that helps me is being outside,” she adds. “I like to go to the beach on my days off. Just being in the fresh air and listening to the waves helps me to de-stress and not think about work or other obligations.McFadden echos that and says spending time in nature, whether it be hiking, kayaking or just being outside can really improve your health and well-being.Ciara Lopez and Marissa McFadden, RN’s from Florida Hospital, share their ideas on how to stay healthy.Lopez also recommends taking up a hobby like reading, cooking or sewing to free your mind from the burden of stress and deadlines.Get Enough ZZZZs“Sleep is equally important when it comes to feeling your best and managing stress and tension,” she says. “When you don’t get enough sleep, your emotions and hormones are not as well regulated and little stressors become much bigger.”Nourish Your BodyWhen you wake up in the morning, Erica Corcoran suggests starting with a healthy meal. “It gives you energy, and I find that whatever I have for breakfast will dictate if I continue to eat healthy or grab junk food throughout the day.”“When it comes to nutrition, as you get away from processed foods and you feed your body properly, your mind becomes clearer,” adds Lopez.“I like to know what is in my food, so I tend to pack my lunch,” says McFadden. “I also use a holistic approach to health. I use essential oils, take vitamins and make shakes each day that include veggies, flax seed and protein. I also try to eat a clove of garlic at night because it has many medicinal properties and aids in digestion.”Be Mindful“It can be stressful working in the ICU, so I try to maintain a healthy balance by traveling on my time off,” explains McFadden. “This allows me to see the world while clearing my mind. I strive to always “Live in the moment” and be mindful with what my body’s trying to tell me in order to live happy. When I return to work after a trip I’m so much more focused and dedicated to my job and my patients.”Want to stay healthy? Laugh.Laugh“Laugh, as much as possible,” Corcoran adds. “I really try hard to tell those I care about, both personally and professionally, that I value them. It feels good to make people smile and you never know what they are going through; you could make their day too.”“My coworkers always ask me “How is it that you’re always smiling?,’” says McFadden, “and I have to respond with “’You never know whose day you could make just with a simple smile.”Set Goals“I think it’s important to have goals so you can stay on track,” says Joyce. “For example, staying healthy and exercising is something we preach at home to our kids. So, we as a family have signed up for a marathon weekend every year since 2005. My son is only 13 but has done it for 12 years now and my 11 year old for 9 years. Signing up 9 months ahead gives us that goal to work toward all year.”“I try to sign up for numerous races throughout the year to keep up the momentum,” she says. “It’s also a mini vacation we take, which is so important. We must take the time to refuel and rest.” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address!

’Bangladeshi workers become worst victims of greed for profit’

Posted On Jun 15 2021 by

first_imgInterview with communist leader on Nov. 24 fireKhalequzzamanWorkers World conducted the following interview with Khalequzzaman, the general secretary of the revolutionary Socialist Party of Bangladesh (http://spb.org.bd), regarding the fire in a textile factory that took the lives of 124 workers, mostly women, last Nov. 24. The factory had produced clothing for Walmart and other major international retailers.WW: What is the relationship between the big textile manufacturers and retailers in the imperialist countries (Walmart, Carrefour, etc.) and the sweatshop owners in Bangladesh?Kh: Taking advantage of competition among the garment exporting countries, the transnational textile manufacturers and retailers always want to buy products at the possible cheapest price. But when they sell those with their brand name to the consumers, they sell at a high price. The rate at retail outlets in the USA is often three to four times higher than the export price.The factory owners of Bangladesh try to reduce the production cost as much as possible in order to increase export. As a result, the workers of Bangladesh become the worst victims to the owners’ greed for profit. Since the ready-made garments sector is a labor-intensive industry, the factory owners aim at limiting the wage as much as possible.Driven by the motive of maximizing profit, the owners become so greedy that they are not interested in investing in ensuring the minimum safety measures in the working place. The laws in Bangladesh regarding this issue are weak, but the owners do not conform to even those weak laws.This is the reason why the number of accidents and fires is increasing in the ready-made garments sector of Bangladesh and the death toll of workers is rising in such cases. Those accidents are happening from ignoring the safety measures and law guaranteeing a safe working environment.The prime objective of the big imperialist corporations and the Bangladeshi owners is to exploit cheap labor. This common interest has made relations between them sweet.WW: What is the relationship of the big corporations and the factory owners with the government in Dhaka?Kh: The government of Bangladesh is doing its best to protect the owners’ ability to exploit the workers, whether the owners are Bangladeshi or foreign. The government bows down to unfair demands from the owners, who plead that these demands will increase export revenue. It deprives the workers, preventing them from exercising their legal, democratic and trade union rights.In addition to these, the U.S. government is collecting 30 to 40 percent tariffs on Bangladeshi garments exported to the U.S. This is another argument that the Bangladesh owners and the government put forth in order to deny the demand for better wages.WW: How are the workers and their communities organizing in response to the tragedy of Nov. 24?Kh: Workers continued their protest for four days at the Savar-Ashulia industrial area after Nov. 24 when 124 workers were killed in a garment fire in that area. Labor groups organized demonstrations across the country. They demand that the factory owner be punished and [for] appropriate compensation, treatment of the injured [and] rehabilitation of workers [from] the BGMEA [Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association] and government. But due to the absence of trade union rights, the workers could not continue their protest.WW: What is the Socialist Party doing in reaction to this latest crisis?Kh: The Socialist Party of Bangladesh and its workers’ wing, “Socialist Workers’ Front,” protested the recent workers killing. The Socialist Party general secretary and the Communist Party president visited the spot and they led large rallies.The Socialist Workers’ Front organized marches, demonstrations and they termed the incident as killings, so the owner should be punished. The government authority responsible for inspection of the factory safety system also should be punished.A general strike was called on Dec. 18 across the country by the left parties. The strikers’ demands included the demand to arrest the factory owner and to ensure workers’ safety. Garment workers participated in the strike in most of the places.WW: Is there any message to workers in the United States that you would like to send or that the textile workers there would want to send? How can we help?Kh: We appeal to workers in the United States and all around the world to stand beside workers of the Bangladesh ready-made garment sector. They work under the world’s lowest wages, most inhumane working environment and at high risk of death. The working people of Bangladesh are fighting to get their rights. We expect that supporting these struggling workers is the moral responsibility of the workers all around the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


Photographer and human rights activist Tomo Kriznar gets presidential pardon

Posted On Jun 12 2021 by

first_img News Receive email alerts SudanAfrica News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today hailed the news that Slovenian photographer and human rights activist Tomo Kriznar was given a presidential pardon on 2 September but the organisation stressed the need to obtain the release of three other foreign media workers still being held in Sudan’s western Dafur region.Kriznar was sentenced to two years in prison on charges of spying and publishing false information on 14 August after entering Sudan without a visa. He had been held in Shala prison in Al-Fashir, the capital of North Dafur, since 20 July.“Kriznar’s release from prison is good news, but the imperative now is to obtain the release of Paul Salopek and his two assistants, who are being held in the same city for the same reasons, and to force the Sudanese government to keep its promises to respect press freedom and the right to be informed,” Reporters Without Borders said.The presidential pardon came after negotiations between the Sudanese government and Hamdija Blekic, a special envoy of the Slovenian president. Kriznar had himself also been acting as a special adviser to his country’s president.A correspondent of the Chicago Tribune daily newspaper, Salopek has been held in Al Fashir since 6 August along with his driver, Suleiman Abakar Moussa and his interpreter, Abdulraman Anu, who are both Chadians. They are also charged with spying and entering Sudan illegally and their trial has been set for 10 September.————–14.08.2006 – Photographer and activist Tomo Kriznar gets two years in prison on spying chargeReporters Without Borders called today for the release of Slovenian writer and activist Tomo Kriznar after he was sentenced on 14 August by a court in Al Fashir, the capital of the western state of North Darfur, to two years in prison on charges of spying and publishing false information. Kriznar, who was acting as a special envoy of his country’s president, was arrested in Darfur on 19 July.“We condemn this outrageous manoeuvre by the Sudanese government, which is clearly aimed at discouraging journalists and humanitarian activists from investigating the large-scale massacres that have been taking place in Darfur for the past three years,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Kriznar used his position as a writer, photographer and human rights activist to denounce this major humanitarian crisis,” the organisation added. “The government cannot negotiate with rebel groups under Slovenia’s aegis and at the same time jail a Slovenian representative under an absurd pretext.”The official news agency Suna quoted justice minister Mohamed Ali al-Mardhi as saying Kriznar was convicted of “spying” and “publishing false news” under articles 53 and 66 of the 1991 criminal law, and of “entering Sudan without a visa” under article 10 of the 1994 Passports, Migration and Nationality Act.As well as a two-year prison term, the court imposed a fine of 500,000 dinars (1,934 euros) that would become an additional six-month prison term in the event of non-payment. His still cameras, his movie camera, his telephones and his laptop were confiscated. The court also stipulated that he would be expelled from Sudan on completing his prison sentence.One of his lawyers, Mohamed Mahjoub, the former dean of the North Dafur bar association, said an appeal would be filed within two days. His other lawyer told Reporters Without Borders the requirements of due process were not respected. “We were not given enough time to defend our client,” he said.Slovenian President Janez Drnovsek has written to Sudanese President Omar Al Bechir asking him to pardon his special envoy. The sentence was “absolutely too harsh” for a minor consular offence, he said.During a hearing on 1 August, Kriznar admitted entering Sudan without a visa from Chad. He said he did this on the invitation of the Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM). But he denied the spying charge. His request for a visa was refused by the Sudanese embassy in Vienna because of his “negative” articles, the Sudanese foreign ministry said. He had written several articles about the situation in Darfur for Slovenian newspapers and his website www.tomokriznar.com.Both the Slovenian authorities and the African Union mission in Al Fashir had called for his release immediately after his arrest on 19 July.In February, Slovenia’s president proposed a plan for resolving the crisis in Darfur and the dispatch of a special mission led by Kriznar. Slovenia also participated in the talks between the government and rebels which were held in Abuja in May and which resulted in the SLM joining the government.More than 200,000 people have died in the fighting in Darfur since 2003, and more than 2 million have been displaced.

Gavin Newsom’s order that could allow those low risk businesses to open.“I’d like to move forward with allowing these small businesses to open back up,” said Vice Mayor Tyron Hampton.Newsom is scheduled to provide more guidelines on reopening those types of businesses on Thursday. The council could not vote on the item since it was not agendized.However it was clear that a majority of council members do favor reopening low risk businesses.Mayor Terry Tornek said he did not think the council would object if the county health officer and the city’s public health director favored the low-risk businesses opening.The businesses could only perform curbside service.It is not known if council would have to vote or if the council’s Safer at Home order could simply be amended to allow the shops to do business.“Let’s let them do that,” said Councilwoman Margaret McAustin. “The goal is to get the businesses open in a way where the customers feel safe. It’s something we can facilitate on the ground locally.”No decision was made on Monday.Councilman Victor Gordo called on staff to analyze the order and bring it back to either the council or send it one of the city’s committees.On Monday, the council voted to restart committees and the matter could before the EDTECH committee which is chaired by Gordo.Mayor Terry Tornek has already met with some business associations to discuss how the city will reopen.Tornek said that although all the right questions are being asked right now he does not have all answers,“I do know based on what’s happened with the essential businesses that are open now, that there are going to be issues in terms of the number of people in the establishment, the social distancing between the customers — you know, putting blue tape on the floor to keep people six feet apart, having hand sanitizers, having masks for employees,” Tornek said.“There are a couple of pretty easy to predict requirements for these businesses and they should be making those arrangements now so that when the, when the flag comes down and they’re allowed to open, they don’t start to hunt for blue tape.”All but essential businesses have been closed since mid-March when state and local orders mandated people stay in their homes until the order is lifted.If businesses do open on Friday, it will be the first easing of the order since it was put in place.Businesses can start reopening Friday if new physical-distancing measures are implemented.“As early as by end of this week, you will have the capacity as retailer to begin to reopen for pickup: clothing, bookstores, music shops, sporting goods, florists as Mother’s Day approaches and other sectors within that retail sector,” Newsom said.Newsom said that particular areas have the right not to comply with the order.

The sentiment index level for January was at 98.5 percent, which is a 0.3 percent increase from December 2016.Richard Curtin, the chief economist of the Consumer Survey, stated that consumers “anticipated the most positive outlook for their personal finances in more than a decade” in last month’s findings.Business Insider noted that consumer confidence has surged in the wake of the election of President Donald Trump, as improved outlooks for growth and jobs have strengthened the index.Curtin cited that the consumer sentiment might have led to an increase in mortgage rates.“Consumers have become more convinced that the stronger economy would finally prompt the Fed to increase interest rates at a quicker pace, which caused one-in- five consumers to favor borrowing-in-advance of anticipated increases in mortgage rates, the highest level in more than twenty years,” he said.Also set to be released 10 a.m. Monday will be the Labor Market Conditions survey compiled by the Federal Reserve, as well as the Jobless Claims report at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.Will consumer sentiment remain on the ascent for February?

The Thane Police is investigating the case lodged by a subordinate officer for various offences under the SC/ST Act, Civil Rights Protection Act, Maharashtra Police Act and IPC. The State agreed to make the statement while seeking time to respond to Singh’s plea for quashing of the FIR against him and interim relief for no coercive action.

Khambata informed the court that he had received the compilation of documents only an hour ago. Advocate Pradnya Talekar appeared for the original complainant. Advertisement The Complaint Police Inspector Bhimrao Ghadge alleged that Singh misused his authority as Commissioner of Police (Thane) in 2015 to instigate four false complaints against him within eight days because he refused to drop the names of certain influential people in the cases he was investigating. Ghadge claims that Singh instigated the same accused, against whom he was conducting an investigation, to lodge cases against him. He was incarcerated for 14 months owing to these complaints, he says.

Finally, he approached the Bombay High Court, asking the Director-General of Police to decide on his complaint in 2018. Even as a contempt petition was pending, the State registered an FIR against Param Bir Singh and 32 others on April 28, 2021, for offences under sections 3(1)(p), 3(1)(q), 3(1)(r), 3(2)(ii), 3(2)(v) and 3(2)(vii) of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Atrocities Prevention) Act 1989, Sections 7(1-A) of the Civil Rights Protection Act 1955 r/w section 109, 110, 111, 113,166,167, 500, 120B of the IPC r/w Section 22 of the Maharashra Police Act.

Param Bir Singh’s petition Param Bir Singh has approached the High Court u/s 482 of the CrPC, seeking to quash the FIR. He alleged that the Maharashtra Government was pursuing the FIR to pressure him to withdraw his corruption allegations against former State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. Regarding Ghatge’s FIR, Singh says it does not disclose a cognisable offence and vital facts have been suppressed. He has called the FIR an abuse of the process of law, registered with “sinister motives.” Singh further says that sections of the SC/ST Act have been wrongly applied and there is no explanation for why the FIR was registered belatedly. He has sought a CBI inquiry into the attempts being made to pressurise him. He also has sought a stay on all the proceedings to the subject FIR.
