Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. 2020 has been a challenging year for UK income investors, so far. Due to coronavirus carnage, over 40 companies in the FTSE 100 have cancelled or suspended their dividends.Income-focused investment trusts could offer investors some protection from the widespread dividend cuts. One big advantage of income investment trusts is they provide exposure to a wide range of dividend-paying companies, limiting stock-specific risk.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…In addition, investment trusts can retain up to 15% of the income they collect every year and use these ‘reserves’ to top up payments to investors during lean income years. This is a very handy feature if your objective is to generate regular income.Below, I highlight two high-quality income-focused investment trusts I hold in high regard.Investment trusts for incomeThe first I want to highlight is the City of London (LSE: CTY). This is a conservatively-managed investment trust that has a strong focus on large, blue-chip FTSE 100 companies. It has a phenomenal dividend track record, having increased its payout to investors every year for over 50 years now. Source: City of London Investment TrustThere are a few reasons I like the look of CTY right now. Firstly, its top holdings are reliable dividend payers. At 31 May, its top four holdings were British American Tobacco, Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline, and Unilever. None of these companies have cut their dividends in 2020.Secondly, at 31 December 2019, the trust had £55m in reserves. This means it should have the firepower to continue paying dividends to investors in the current environment.Last year, City of London trust paid out 18.6p per share in dividends, which equates to a trailing yield of 5.8% at the current share price. There’s no guarantee it’ll pay out the same level of dividends this year, however, I think the total payout will be attractive in the current environment.If you’re looking for a reliable investment trust for income, I think CTY has a lot of appeal.Dividend heroAnother investment trust I like for income is the Murray Income Trust (LSE: MUT). This one has a 5-star rating from Morningstar. It also has AIC ‘dividend hero’ status (as does CTY), meaning it has increased its dividend every year for over 20 years.Like City of London, Murray Income Trust is invested in some very reliable dividend payers. At 31 May, its top four holdings were AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, RELX, and Diageo. None of these companies have reduced or cancelled their payouts in 2020.And just like CTY, it has a solid level of reserves. According to a recent research report from Edison, MUT has sufficient revenue reserves to maintain its quarterly dividend payments for several quarters, if need be. The trust also expects to be able to maintain its long-term record of increased annual dividends, according to Edison.Murray Income Trust has delivered a strong overall performance recently. For the year to 31 May, its NAV fell just 3.3%. By contrast, its benchmark, the FTSE All-Share index, fell 11.2%.Meanwhile, the trust paid out dividends of 34p per share for 2019, which equates to a trailing yield of 4.5% at the current share price. Again, there’s no guarantee investors will see that level of payout this year. I’m confident the payout will be attractive though.last_img read more

This splits the garden into two parts with different atmospheres: the front and the back. The front part of the garden becomes the place for afternoon activities by the pool, the social space for meeting with the visitors. The atmosphere of this place is unique, especially during the sunset, when the sun is above the silhouette of the palace.Save this picture!© Jiri WeinzettlThe back garden is an intimate space for perceiving omnipresent colours, sounds and smells of the surrounding nature. This is supported mainly by the absence of the fence – the optical barrier, which would separate from each other the beauties of the surroundings.Save this picture!© Jiri WeinzettlThe massing and layout of the object was influenced by the unusual shape of the plot, by the cardinal orientation and the effort to significantly connect the exterior with the interior.

first_imgA large multinational protest chanted while mostly white men — “suits” — entered the New York Hilton Jan. 21 for a realtors’ event. The Real Estate Board of New York’s 120th annual banquet began with a $1,100-a-plate dinner and featured New York Mayor Bill de Blasio as guest speaker.  A statement distributed by the Citywide Alliance Against Displacement tells of whole communities being evicted and destroyed, small businesses losing their livelihood and working-class families losing grocery stores: “We denounce the underhanded deals between developers and NYC elected officials who receive large campaign contributions from them. We reject Mayor de Blasio’s zoning plan for NYC that promotes luxury development, … displacing more people of color and working families, and eliminating more affordable units than it claims to create. We call on all New Yorkers to join in a grass-roots alliance to stop Mayor de Blasio’s developer-led zoning plans.”The protest demands called for protection against displacement. Unity was strong and expressed in three languages. For more information on follow-up plans, visit  contact [email protected]e thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The act, including Garrett’s amendment, passed largely among party lines by a vote of 242 to 173 on Wednesday with only 12 Democrats voting in favor and only 10 Republicans voting against.The disparate impact issue has become a heated one in the last few years, particularly in housing. The rule allowing disparate impact claims, which are allegations made based on neutral practices that may have a discriminatory effect, was passed by the Obama Administration in February 2013. In early November 2014, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon struck down the disparate impact rule, saying that only claims of direct, intentional discrimination could be made under the Fair Housing Act.A case involving a disparate impact claim, Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc., was argued in the U.S. Supreme Court on January 21, 2015. The case centers on allegations that tax credits were awarded to real estate developers who own property in low-income minority dominated neighborhoods and denied to developers who own property in predominantly white neighborhoods. The Supreme Court is expected to make a ruling in July.”While everyone agrees that discrimination has no place in the lending practices of any respectable institution, the application of disparate impact theory has had devastating impacts on law-abiding businesses who have diligently maintained fair and consistent lending standards,” Garrett said Wednesday after H.R. 2578 passed along with his amendment. “The federal government should be encouraging sound business practices, not punishing those that utilize them. I thank my colleagues for taking a stand for small businesses and reinstating equal protection under the laws as guaranteed in our Constitution by the Fourteenth Amendment.”With the Obama Administration backing the disparate impact rule, the bill is likely to meet opposition from the White House if it passes the Senate.The purpose of H.R. 2578 is to provide “FY2016 appropriations to: the Department of Commerce; the Department of Justice (DOJ); science agencies, including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF); and several related agencies.”Click here to see a video of Garrett discussing the amendment.

On noting the meagre number of people who were penalized for violating the Covid-safety guidelines in the city of Prayagraj, a Division Bench comprising of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar observed, “This small number of penalisation shows that the police has also become complacent.” The Bench has called for strict implementation of its order dated March 1, issuing several directions to be observed all across the State. the Bench had observed therein that failure to follow such directions would attract strict action under the Epidemic Diseases Act, and other relevant laws such as the Disaster Management Act. ‘People Forgetting That They Have To Protect Themselves From Deadly Covid-19 Virus’: Allahabad High Court Reiterates Directions; Seek Strict Enforcement On Monday, the Bench was informed by the Advocate Commissioner, appointed by the Court to look after implementation of Covid-safety guidelines in the city, that almost nobody is wearing mask. Further, the Police Department told the Bench that they had challaned 1192 persons for not wearing mask in the city of Prayagraj, from the date of its order. Dissatisfied with the ground report, the Bench has sought for appointment of a “responsible police officer” to apprise the Court as to why steps are not being taken to implement its directions contained in the March 1 order. The Bench has also sought response from the counsel appearing for the High Court as to what steps are being taken to make sure that Covid-safety guidelines are observed within the High Court premises. The matter is fixed for hearing on Friday, March 26.Related NewsThis is not the first time that the Allahabad High Court has pulled up the UP Police for its failure to enforce Covid-safety guidelines. In September last year, when the virus was at its peak, the High Court had asked the UP Police to make sure no person moves outside his/ her house without a mask on his/her face. The Court had observed that the Police and the Administration cannot get away by saying that people are to be blamed for not wearing the masks. They cannot say that despite their best efforts, masks are not being worn. In another order, the Bench had pulled up the administration for tuning the social distancing norm into an “empty shibboleth”. “Neither the Government is looking interested in implementing the rule that two individuals should remain two yards away and wear masks nor the people of our State are interested in following the above rule,” the Division bench had remarked.

The honour of the first name on the new lifeboat will go to a young lifeboat volunteer, Lee Early (26), from Donegal, who tragically lost his life last year when he was involved in an accident on Arranmore Island.The Shannon class all-weather lifeboat, which will be built in the RNLI’s All-Weather Lifeboat centre, is the second such lifeboat to be part of the charity’s ‘Launch a Memory’ fundraising campaign and the first to be based in Ireland.Through the ‘Launch a Memory’ campaign, members of the public and supporters of the charity will be able to commemorate a loved one by making a donation online and submitting that person’s name.The name of each person being remembered will be featured within the lifeboat’s letters (RNLI) and numbers, or decal, displayed on the vessel’s hull in lettering 3-4mm in height. The first Launch a Memory lifeboat is due to go on service in Invergordon, Scotland.Lee was the Deputy Coxswain at Arranmore RNLI and a Skipper of the local ferry, who loved the sea and the charity that saved lives at sea.In a tribute to him, that charity will put his name as the first one on the new lifeboat, contained in the letters RNLI, alongside others whose loved ones want to commemorate them.Lee’s father Jimmy Early, Arranmore RNLI lifeboat Coxswain said, ‘I am so proud that my son’s name will be on the Clifden lifeboat that will be stationed off the west coast of Ireland. We live on an island off a larger island and so the sea is in our blood. I am very proud to be a lifeboat Coxswain, and I was so proud of Lee when he followed in my footsteps. He is with us always. Every time we launch the lifeboat, we think of him, and this is a very meaningful way to commemorate him.’‘I know his name will be joined by thousands of others whose loved ones want them remembered in such a special way. That lifeboat will launch many times in its lifetime and bring many people to safety. I couldn’t think of a better way for someone to be remembered.’RNLI official Owen medland has been liaising with Arranmore Lifeboat for several years……..Audio Playerhttps://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/owenrnli.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Hurricane Dorian made landfall along Cape Hatteras, N.C., Friday as those on the state’s low-lying islands battled ferocious rain and braced for flash flooding and dangerous storm surge.Hundreds may be trapped on Ocracoke Island where the deadly storm “is raging” and “waters are rising quickly,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Friday.“I don’t think rescue crews can get in at this point, but they are ready to go as soon as they possibly can,” Cooper said.The Hyde County Sheriff’s Office called the flooding on Ocracoke Island “catastrophic.”Leslie Lanier, who lives on Ocracoke Island, said some residents had to climb into their attics to escape the water.Lanier is OK but “nervous and worried,” she told ABC Raleigh station WTVD.“Hatteras Island is literally drowning… the flooding is insane,” Outer Banks resident Sarah Ashley, who evacuated inland but said her husband stayed behind, told ABC News via email. “We’re praying that these winds die down before high tide [Friday afternoon].”The governor urged those in Dare and Hyde Counties to move to the highest point in their homes as the fierce waters rise.At least four people have died in the Southeast as a result of Dorian, according to The Associated Press, including an 85-year-old man who fell off a ladder in North Carolina while preparing his home for the storm.At least 379,000 homes and businesses were without power across the Carolinas and Virginia on Friday as a result of the storm, now a Category 1 hurricane.Dorian is expected to dump up to 8 inches of rain in northeast North Carolina through Saturday, with as much as 15 inches of total rainfall in some spots.The combination of downpours and storm surge as high as 7 feet could cause life-threatening flash floods.South Carolina has already seen more than 10 inches of rain since the storm barreled up the coast on Thursday.At least 20 tornadoes were reported in the Carolinas on Thursday. One tornado ripped through Emerald Isle, N.C., upending mobile homes and strewing debris across the roads.Another tornado was reported in Little River, S.C., where one resident told ABC Florence affiliate WPDE that they heard what sounded “like a large airplane or a large train coming through.”By Friday afternoon and evening, Dorian’s gusty winds and heavy rain will move out to sea, but the storm is still set to bring heavy rain and up to 4 feet of storm surge to southern Virginia.Even the Northeast will see impacts from Dorian when the storm grazes the coast with heavy rain Friday night into Saturday morning.A coastal flood advisory was issued for parts of New Jersey, New York and coastal Connecticut, while a tropical storm watch was issued for Cape Cod and eastern Maine.Before approaching the United States, Dorian slammed into the Bahamas on Sunday afternoon as a Category 5 hurricane, making the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record.At least 30 people have died in the Bahamas due to Dorian, but the country’s health minister told a local radio station Thursday that the final death count will be “staggering.”The storm hovered over the archipelago’s northern islands for nearly two days, flattening homes, submerging roads and flooding an international airport.Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Dorian left “generational devastation” across the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama, which are both in the archipelago’s northern region, east of southern Florida.“Everybody’s, like, in a state of shock right now. We lost everything,” one woman said. “So right now we’re in survival mode.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Savers investing an average of £25 a week in ISAs previous nextHousing MarketSavers investing an average of £25 a week in ISAsMillennials are surprisingly engaged in regular investment, but will it build a deposit to buy a home?Sheila Manchester21st March 20180823 Views Moneybox has surveyed 90,000 of its investors in the 17/18 ISA season to ascertain what type of savings provision people are making for the future.After analysis, it was found the average weekly saving was £25, with those in London the biggest ISA contributors(£36 every week), and the people of Sunderland and Belfast saving the least, investing £19 every week.When it came to attitudes, savers in the South had a more daring approach to financial risk, with just over half (50.7%) opting for Moneybox’s ‘adventurous’ global equity-heavy product when investing their weekly savings. This compared to 48.6% of Northerners.Drilling down to town and city level, savers in Southampton are the most adventurous, followed by those in Edinburgh and Sunderland. In contrast, those investing money in Hull are the most risk-averse.What’s particularly encouraging is the number of people getting into the habit of investing every single week.”The Moneybox research also goes some way to dispelling the myth that Millennials spend all their money on cold pressed coffee and avocados. The company – whose average customer age is 31 – said that micro-investing was capturing the attention of younger people. The observation follows the company’s drive to get people saving their spare change to help provide for the future.The trend for small, regular savings dovetails with industry advice that suggests tenants can help accumulate a deposit for their first home by giving up small indulgences and treats. One agent, Strutt & Parker, recently said that giving up six luxuries, such as takeaways and a weekly night out, could save renters more than £6,000 per year.Ben Stanway, co-founder of Moneybox, commented, “What’s particularly encouraging is the number of people getting into the habit of investing every single week. Contrary to popular belief, this proves that Millennials are absolutely willing and able to plan towards their future and are already taking smart steps to make it happen.”millennials investment investments savings savers Moneybox survey Moneybox research Ben Stanway March 21, 2018The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
