The UK shares I’ve bought to create a passive income for life

first_img 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. The UK shares I’ve bought to create a passive income for life I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Over the past few years, I’ve been buying UK shares to create a passive income. My goal’s been to buy the market’s best income stocks. This means companies that, in my opinion, can produce an income stream for the rest of my life. I think there are only a handful of companies that fall into this bucket. The FTSE 100 is stuffed full on income stocks but, as we’ve found out over the past 12 months, only a small number of these can maintain their payouts in challenging situations. 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…For example, five years ago it was inconceivable that BT would eliminate its dividend. But that’s just what the company did earlier this year. Investors who had been relying on this business to provide a passive income were left wanting. Passive income sharesThe problems faced by many income stocks this year illustrate why it’s essential to focus on high-quality dividend shares.Quality has always been a core component of my income strategy. I’ll only buy stocks that have a strong balance sheet, robust profit margins, and international presence. A strong competitive advantage is also highly desirable. One of the companies that fits into this bracket is Investec. As one of the world’s largest asset management businesses, this organisation has a strong reputation in its sector. It also operates across the globe, attracting wealthy clients from all countries. These qualities have supported the company’s 4.7% dividend yield. I don’t own it yet, but plan to add the stock on weakness at some point.Two companies I do currently own however, are Prudential and M&G. Both the firms have similar attractive qualities to Investec. They own world-leading brands and operate globally. Prudential, in particular, has a large presence in Asia. By making the most of their strengths, I believe these two groups should be able to produce large cash returns to investors over the next few years. Income trust As well as buying individual shares for my passive income portfolio, I’ve also added some investment trusts. One of these is the Scottish Investment Trust.This trust owns a portfolio of defensive investments. Utility companies, pharmaceutical groups and gold miners all feature. Together, these assets provide a passive income stream for the investment trust, allowing it to distribute a dividend yield of around 3.2% to investors every year. What I like about this enterprise is the fact it does all the work for you. All investors need to do sit back and collect the dividend cheque. Investment trusts can also hold back a portion of their income every year to cover dividend payouts in uncertain times, such as 2020.The Scottish Investment Trust has done just that. By dipping into its reserves, the trust’s been able to maintain its dividend this year. In my view, this quality makes the business a vital addition to a passive income portfolio of UK shares.  Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 22nd November, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Photo: ENS archive[Diocese of Los Angeles] Canon Ruth Nicastro, longtime missioner for communication in the Diocese of Los Angeles and editor emerita of its Episcopal News, died March 28 while hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California. She was 90 and had been suffering the effects of two strokes in recent years.A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 17 at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church, 3590 Grand View Blvd., Los Angeles. Diocese of Los Angeles retired Bishop Frederick H. Borsch will preach.Well known across the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion for her award-winning expertise, Nicastro was in 1986-89 president of the churchwide Episcopal Communicators and in 1988 a member of the international Lambeth Conference communication team, serving at the invitation of then Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie.In 1980 Nicastro won the first-ever Polly Bond Award, thereafter presented annually by Episcopal Communicators and so named for an esteemed former communication director in the Diocese of Ohio. Nicastro won the award for a diocesan newspaper supplement titled “The Homeless Millions,” which addressed the international refugee situation and the church’s role in providing hope and relief. Upon her 1993 retirement, the Communicators also presented to her the Janette Pierce Award for outstanding service to the Church — an award she had helped to establish in memory of another close friend and pioneering communicator.“There are few people in the history of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Los Angeles who have shaped the diocesan community as positively and significantly as Ruth Nicastro has done through the years,” said Bishop Diocesan J. Jon Bruno. “Her friendship and mentoring will remain with me always. Our hearts and prayers are with her beloved Leo and the Nicastro family.”“Ruth Nicastro was the finest – as a reporter, writer, and editor, friend and colleague,” said Borsch, who retired as Los Angeles bishop diocesan in 2002. “She could be splendidly critical and appreciative at once, with insights that went to the heart of vital issues in the diocese and larger church – at home and in the nation and the Anglican Communion. I first met her in Nigeria. I loved her.”Nicastro and Borsch first worked together in the service of the international Anglican Consultative Council, of which he was a member and she a team journalist. In the Council’s 1984 meeting in Nigeria they served together with Bishop Edmond L. Browning, then leader of the Diocese of Hawaii and later 24th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. These colleagues continued their collaboration in 1987 in Singapore for the Council’s next meeting, at which they were joined by the late Pamela P. Chinnis, later elected president of the Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies. Their close friendships and professional work, including their ties with Runcie as Archbishop of Canterbury, produced fruitful and strategic guidance for the church at the time.“I first knew Ruth as a professional colleague: possessed of creativity, strategic thinking skills, commitment to God’s project and curiosity about the ways faithful people live out their baptismal vows,” said Barbara Braver, retired communication assistant to both presiding bishops Edmond Browning and Frank Griswold, and previously communication officer of the Diocese of Massachusetts. “Over four decades I came to love her ever more as a friend: rich in wisdom, compassion, loyalty, and with a delightful ability to find joy and humor in the daily round.”Retired Episcopal Life editor Jerry Hames also praised Nicastro for her professionalism, kindness, and experience shared while she served as an early member of the Episcopal Life Board of Governors.In Los Angeles, Nicastro was named diocesan missioner for communication and editor of the diocesan newspaper in 1977 by Bishop Robert C. Rusack. She had served previously since 1974 as an assistant for communication on the diocesan staff. Major activities of those years include ordination of women, release of the 1979 prayer book and 1982 hymnal, the closing of St. Paul’s Cathedral and construction of the Cathedral Center in Echo Park.Throughout her tenure as editor, Nicastro advanced the diocesan newspaper to new journalistic standards in years well before the advent of electronic mail and the Internet. Her reporting championed various issues within the diocese, including the ordination and full inclusion of women, as well as for LGBT people of faith. Nicastro retired as missioner and editor in 1993 when she was succeeded by Robert Williams as communication director. Bishop Borsch at that time named Nicastro an honorary canon of the Cathedral Center, and she continued to serve on the Program Group on Communication and the Episcopal News editorial board for many years.“Ruth’s meticulous care of her publications was legendary,” said Janet Kawamoto, current editor of The News, whom Nicastro first hired in 1981 as her assistant. “She was a generous, funny and wise friend, a supportive and encouraging mentor, and a person of quiet but inspiring faith. She set the standards to which I will ever aspire.”A devoted volunteer serving two diocesan institutions, Nicastro was a board member of Pasadena’s Hillsides Home for Children and president of the Friends of the Neighborhood Youth Association, a Los Angeles agency based near her longtime Mar Vista residence.She was in recent years a parishioner and former vestry member of St. Bede’s Church, Mar Vista, having previously attended St. Alban’s, Westwood, where she sang in the choir for several decades under the direction of Canon James Vail and took active part in refugee resettlement projects in response to the plight of Vietnamese “boat people.” In earlier years, she also sang in the choir at Church of the Advent, Los Angeles.A native Southern Californian, Ruth Moody was born in January 18, 1926, in San Fernando, California, and grew up attending St. Simon’s Church there. After her father, Clyde, an attorney, died at an early age, young Ruth and her mother, Gertrude, sister, Anna, and brother, Richard, united to meet new challenges. Ruth went on to graduate Phi Beta Kappa from Pomona College and worked for Macmillan Publishing in both San Francisco and New York. While working in Manhattan Ruth met Leo, and the two were married for 65 years.Survivors include the Nicastros’ three sons, Stephen, Mark and David, daughters-in-law Terry, Robin and Susan, and grandchildren Michael, Max, Sam and Kaitlyn, three nephews and many friends.At the family’s request, in lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the college-access programs of Neighborhood Youth Association, 1016 Pleasant View Ave., Venice, CA 90291.— Robert Williams is canon for community relations in the Diocese of Los Angeles and a past communication director of The Episcopal Church.

Marchas de protesta estallan después de la elección de Trump

first_imgSyracuse, N.Y.11 de noviembre – Aunque los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales todavía se estaban contando, lo que colocó a Donald Trump por delante en votos del Colegio Electoral – pero no del voto popular – lxs jóvenes salieron a la calle a protestar.Durante los dos días siguientes, desde Los Ángeles a Nueva York, de Portland, Ore., a Charlotte, Carolina del Norte, miles de personas en ciudades de todo el país atascaron carreteras, marcharon por las calles y gritaron su repulsión hacia el racismo, el sexismo, la homofobia y el desprecio hacia inmigrantes.A pesar de muchos arrestos, lxs manifestaciones continuaron durante los próximos dos días, 9 y 10 de noviembre, incluso mientras líderes de ambos partidos de la clase gobernante, demócratas y republicanos, instaron a que se aceptara un gobierno Trump y se “curaran las heridas” de una amarga elección.Esto no sofocó el espíritu de resistencia entre lxs jóvenes, muchxs de los cuales están personalmente amenazadxs por el aumento en las atrocidades e insultos racistas, brutalidad hacia las mujeres y personas LGBTQ, y los ataques contra quienes son percibidos como musulmanes y/o inmigrantes – que la victoria de Trump ha alentado.Notablemente ausentes en estas manifestaciones estuvieron los signos de apoyo al Partido Demócrata. Estas no fueron manifestaciones pro-Clinton, aunque muchxs hubieran esperado ver por fin a una mujer presidente. Fueron protestas contra la política de reacción sobre todos los asuntos sociales que Trump representa.Muchos están hablando ahora de una gran protesta en Washington, D.C., en la inauguración el 20 de enero como el siguiente gran paso en las protestas para detener a Trump.A continuación se presentan los informes de testigos oculares de sólo algunas de las acciones que siguieron a las elecciones.FiladelfiaCerca de 1.000 estudiantes y miembros de la comunidad indignados por la elección de Donald Trump se reunieron el 9 de noviembre frente al Ayuntamiento y luego marcharon por la calle Broad pasando por la Universidad de Temple para llegar a los barrios del norte de Filadelfia. Por otra parte, unxs 200 estudiantes progresistas y miembros de la comunidad de la Universidad de Templo se reunieron en el campus para hablar sobre Trump a pesar del clima lluvioso y frío. Discursos apasionados destacaron su indignación de que el machista y racista Donald Trump sea el próximo presidente.Especialmente bien representadxs estaban los supervivientes de agresión sexual, quienes expresaron su asombro por la elección de un depredador sexual a la oficina más alta de la nación, así como su determinación de combatir la misoginia y apoyarse mutuamente.En la noche siguiente, miles de manifestantes anti-Trump cerraron calles en el centro de la ciudad por segunda noche consecutiva. A partir de la plaza Thomas Paine, más de 3.000 manifestantes, principalmente mujeres vestidas de negro, celebraron una vigilia antes de tomar las calles para marchar a la estación de trenes Amtrak de la calle 30.Llamada por ‘Our 100: Philly Women in Formation’, el evento comenzó desde una publicación en Facebook bajo el hashtag #GOPHandsOffMe. La manifestación se abrió al reconocer que muchas mujeres que asistieron necesitaban espacio para expresar su pesar y preocupación por haber elegido a Trump, un misógino admitido que hablaba abiertamente de agredir a las mujeres. Sin embargo, el estado de ánimo rápidamente cambió a uno de resistencia. Una oradora dirigió a la multitud con una consigna popular de Assata Shakur: “Es nuestro deber luchar por nuestra libertad. Es nuestro deber ganar. Debemos amarnos unxs a otrxs y apoyarnos mutuamente. No tenemos nada que perder sino nuestras cadenas”.La mayoría de lxs participantes eran mujeres jóvenes de color, muchas marchando por primera vez. La respuesta de la gente reunida a lo largo de la ruta de la marcha mostró que no estaban solas en su insistencia de que Trump no es “mi presidente”.La llamada de Facebook decía: “Estamos mostrando a todo el país que el liderazgo de las mujeres de color no termina con esta elección. Recordaremos a la gente que esta elección fue y es sobre nuestras vidas: vidas negras, vidas de mujeres, vidas de inmigrantes y la vida de gente LGBTQ”.SeattleEn respuesta a la victoria de Trump, por lo menos 3.000 personas marcharon aquí el 11 de noviembre contra su movimiento racista. Salieron a las calles gritando consignas: ¡La vida de los negros importa! Y “Trump es un violador, él es racista, él no nos representa”!La bandera principal decía: ¡”Solidaridad con Standing Rock! ¡El agua es vida”! La manifestación, que fue iniciada por Alternativa Socialista, pasó por el centro de la ciudad durante la hora punta. El anuncio de una protesta contra-inaugural contra Trump el 20 de enero fue muy aplaudido. Marcharon más de cinco millas al campus de la Universidad de Washington, donde se unieron a una manifestación de estudiantes contra Trump. Por lo menos en dos escuelas secundarias de Seattle lxs estudiantiles se salieron de la escuela.En las elecciones, lxs votantes del estado de Washington eligieron a Dennis Habib, un iraní progresista que también es no vidente, para ser teniente-gobernador. Habib será el máximo funcionario electo en el país nacido en Irán. Pramila Jayapal, una defensora de los derechos de inmigrantes, fue elegida para la Cámara de Representantes del Séptimo Distrito en Seattle, convirtiéndose en la primera persona nacida en la India elegida para el Congreso.Buffalo, N.Y.Además de las enormes y militantes multitudes que protestaban contra Trump en todas las grandes ciudades, hubo grandes manifestaciones en lugares más pequeños, incluso frente al edificio federal aquí. Fue muy necesario comenzar el primer día de la Resistencia saliendo a las calles, levantando los puños y compartiendo nuestra determinación. La respuesta – lxs conductores apoyaban continuamente tocando la bocina durante la demostración – el mensaje fue fuerte y claro: “¡No lloremos, organicémonos”!ChicagoDecenas de miles de manifestantes rodearon la Torre Trump de Chicago, entraron por las calles circundantes y marcharon durante horas por el Loop el 9 de noviembre para protestar por la elección de un presidente que sólo promete racismo, fanatismo y guerra. La multitud multinacional – en su mayoría joven – fue recibida con entusiasmo por peatones y conductores, incluso aquellxs atrapados por el mar de manifestantes.Syracuse, N.Y.Más de un centenar de personas se reunieron el 9 de noviembre en el centro de Syracuse en el monumento de abolicionistas William Henry/Jerry Rescue para hablar sobre el dolor y la rabia que la gente sentía por la elección de Trump. Tanto un refugiado paquistaní documentado como un ciudadano estadounidense de padres hondureños hablaron de tener miedo después de las elecciones en un país que ha sido el único hogar que han conocido.Rebecca Fuentes y Nikeeta Slade, del Centro de Trabajadores del Centro de Nueva York, hicieron un llamado para apoyar los derechos ampliados de lxs trabajadores agrícolas, así como una campaña para poner a disposición de todxs, los permisos de conducir en Nueva York, sin importar el estatus de ciudadanía de las personas. El WCCNY trabaja con muchxs trabajadores migrantes. La multitud aclamó el apoyo a Standing Rock, derechos LGBTQ y las vidas musulmanas. A intervalos gritaban “Luchar, luchar, luchar”, “Sí, se puede!”, Y “¡Actúen, luchen!” En clara decisión de derrotar la agenda de Trump. La manifestaciónfue convocada por el Consejo de Paz de Syracuse. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Philadelphia report: Black activists in Palestine

first_imgPhiladelphia area Black activists, artists and educators recounted their experiences traveling to Palestine before a standing-room-only crowd at Uncle Bobbie’s community center on Jan. 31. For most of the delegation members, it was their first time as eyewitnesses to Israel’s oppression of Palestinians. Others, like Marc Lamont Hill, had visited multiple times. All described the trip as a transformative experience.Hill, who organized the November delegation, gained national attention when he was fired by CNN for speaking out about the apartheid-like conditions experienced by Palestinians at a U.N.-sponsored conference in solidarity with Palestine in late November in the U.S. At the Jan. 31 gathering, Hill discussed the tradition of Black radical solidarity with Palestine going back even prior to the six-day war in 1967, when Israel seized the West Bank, Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. He raised earlier examples of this solidarity from Malcolm X, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Black Panther Party. Hill also mentioned the solidarity Black community activists received from Palestinians in August 2014, in the aftermath of the police murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Mo. Palestinians in Ramallah not only sent messages of solidarity but tweeted advice on how to create makeshift gas masks and wash teargas from eyes. During the time that the streets of Ferguson were scenes of nightly confrontations with the police, Gaza suffered heavy Israeli bombing for an entire month.Following Hill’s opening remarks, participants recounted their individual reasons for joining the delegation and what they came away with from the experience. Many raised the need to see conditions on the ground in the Israeli occupied territories for themselves, as well as to express transnational solidarity in general.Similarities with sections of PhillyAs activists, artists and educators concerned with prisons, police brutality, the lack of educational opportunities for Black students and the constant impact of spreading gentrification, all compared similarities they observed in Afro-Palestinian communities to those in sections of Philadelphia. A common concern was constantly seeing armed Israeli soldiers stopping and frisking Palestinians in the streets of Hebron and other West Bank cities. They even blocked access to areas near their homes that had been taken over by illegal Israeli settlements. Delegation members reported witnessing construction cranes all over Palestinian cities in the West Bank, as these internationally condemned settlements continue to expand and push Palestinians out.Photographer Marc Holley described how Israeli soldiers prevented him from buying a 25-cent whistle for his daughter at a marketplace stand because they thought he might be Muslim. Others recounted that entering the marketplace through arbitrary check points reminded them of visiting U.S. prisons.As artists, they were moved by a visit with Dareen Tatour, the Palestinian poet sentenced to five months in prison because she expressed her sentiments against occupation in a poem. They encountered other Palestinians who were incarcerated for years just for posting their views on Facebook. As U.S. activists against mass incarceration, they found it powerful to learn that the top three reasons Palestinians are incarcerated are social media posts, throwing rocks and assembling with other people. In describing their experiences at checkpoints and at Israeli airports, Hill raised that just being Palestinian gets one criminalized. “As we were leaving Israel, at the airport we were asked if we had seen any ‘Arabs,’ a designation used by Israelis to deny Palestinian identity. Of course we had, but you got conditioned to say you haven’t.” Holley noted, “I felt like my mom must have felt during the Civil Rights era when just opening your mouth could be dangerous to you and your family.” During the question-and-answer period, former SNCC and BPP member Timothy Hayes spoke from the audience about having his job threatened for speaking out in solidarity with Palestine in the 1970s. A young woman from North Philadelphia’s Black community connected witnessing the destruction of her neighborhood to speakers’ accounts of seeing construction cranes in the West Bank.Before the program ended, Hill shared a trailer for his documentary, “Blacks in the Holy Land,” which he hopes to release at the Black Star Film Festival in the spring.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Application states that it has come to the knowledge of security agencies that “a small group of protesting individuals/organisations have planned to carry out a tractor/trolley/vehicle march on Republic Day” and that the march is “slated to disturb and disrupt” the parade as well as create a law and order situation, thereby causing embarrassment to the nation. Highlighting that right to protest is subject to the countervailing public order and public interest, the Application submits that the right cannot include “maligning the nation globally”. Noting that the Supreme Court is seized of the issues pertaining to the constitutionality of the Farm Acts and the Farmers’ protests, the Application seeks for the Top Court to pass an injunction restraining such protest march scheduled on Republic Day. “Therefore, it is requested that this Hon’ble Court be pleased to pass an order of injunction restraining anyone to conduct any protest march either in the form of tractor march, trolley march, vehicle march or any other mode into the National Capital Region territory of Delhi on 26th January, 2021”. The Application then lists the routes that have been fully blocked due to the continuing protests and presents the chronology of events that are due to take place on account of Republic Day, beginning with the grand rehearsal on 23rd January and ending with Martyrs Day on 30th January. In light of the above, the Delhi Police has prayed for an order of injunction to be passed accordingly. Supreme Court Bench headed by CJI SA Bobde will be passing an order on the farm laws and the protests today.
