Peter Stephens | Saturday, 1st February, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Relying on the State Pension in retirement may lead to a challenging financial outlook in older age. After all, it amounts to just £8,767 per annum, which is around a third of the average salary in the UK.As such, building a portfolio of stocks could be a sound move. They have the potential to generate a nest egg from which you can draw a passive income in retirement.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…With the FTSE 100 currently yielding in excess of 4%, it appears to offer good value for money. Therefore, now could be a good time to start buying stocks for the long term.High-yield opportunitiesBuying high-yield shares could be a sound means of generating impressive long-term returns. With the FTSE 100’s annualised total returns since inception being around 9%, and its dividend yield currently standing at 4.4%, a large proportion of its future returns could be derived from the reinvestment of dividends.Therefore, buying income shares now and reinvesting the income they produce could prove to be a sound means of building a surprisingly large nest egg in the long run.Financial standingClearly, identifying those companies that offer sustainable, as well as high, yields is likely to be highly important. As such, investors may wish to check factors such as a company’s track record of making shareholder payouts during turbulent periods for the world economy.In addition, the headroom a company has when making its dividend payments and its management’s attitude towards paying excess capital to investors, rather than seeking to grow the business, could provide an insight into its future income prospects.Uncertain futureClearly, dividend shares will not be immune to the inherent volatility of the stock market. Risks such as political uncertainty in the US and geopolitical challenges in the Middle East could cause dividend shares to post short-term paper losses for their investors. As such, less risky assets such as cash and bonds may appear to be more appealing in the coming months.However, investors who have a long time horizon may benefit from holding income shares. Their return potential relative to less risky assets may mean that their rewards are worth their extra risks. And by diversifying across a range of stocks, it may be possible to reduce your overall risk without diluting your return potential.Buying dividend stocksSince it is relatively simple and straightforward to open a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA, dividend shares are accessible to almost all investors.With the FTSE 100 appearing to offer good value for money and there being a wide range of opportunities to generate impressive total returns among large-cap dividend shares, now could be the right time to start investing in income stocks to reduce your reliance on the State Pension in retirement and boost your financial prospects in older age.

Army ready to take on the world

first_imgRoyal Navy – Greg Barden was amazing at seven, and the locks, Stu McLaren and Marsh Cormack, were prominent before the Navy were worn down in the second half. The centre pairing of Dale Sleeman and Calum Macrea (the Navy’s try-scorer) combined well but like the team as a whole they were mainly on the back foot. Apolosi Satala, a talisman of Army rugby, scored two tries to help sink the NavyROLL ON the Defence Rugby Cup. That’s the message from the British Army after they ran the Royal Navy ragged, 44-10, to regain the Babcock Trophy in front of a 62,790 Twickenham crowd, writes Rugby World deputy editor Alan Pearey.The inaugural Defence Rugby Cup is being held in Australia and New Zealand in October and on Saturday’s evidence the British Army should have a real shot at winning it – dependent on player availability of course.It’s impossible to overstate the influence of their Fijian soldiers, who comprise half the team. Between them they scored all seven tries – three by right-wing Ben Seru, two by Apo Satala, one by left-wing Gus Qasevakatini and one by fly-half Jack Prasad. When the sun was out and the game was loose, it was like watching a sevens tournament in Suva.“We have quite a few Fijians and Welshies and they like to throw the ball around,” says Army coach Andy Sanger. “The Navy tore into us at the start and we were a bit shellshocked, but at half-time I had a few choice words and reminded them what the Army jersey is about.”Sanger identified three areas for improvement after last year’s shock defeat: contact, rugby conditioning and complacency. He was able to tick all three boxes. Despite the heroics of Navy openside Greg Barden, the Army forced several turnovers in the last hour as the force of their hits told.One of these led to Prasad’s try which gave the Army a 12-10 half-time lead. Whereas last year the Navy finished the stronger, this time the Army’s second-half onslaught took its toll. And nor did the Army show any mercy as they chalked up their ninth win in the fixture in the past ten years. They now have three days of conditioning tests in both July and August before heading Down Under to take on the best combined forces teams from around the world.The Royal Navy will also be competing but outgoing coach Geraint Ashton Jones, who has now passed the reins to Andy Kellett, points out that the team is likely to be weaker – rugby takes a back seat to the players’ main role as armed forces personnel.They were gutsy to the end and will be back to fight another day, but they’re going to need to keep the game more structured to have a chance in 2012.Players of note:British Army – Bola Boladau and Apo Satala were immense in the back row, and second-row Ben Hughes – winning his 32nd Army cap – keeps delivering. Jack Prasad was instrumental in several of the tries and on the wing Ben Seru had a field day against Scott Llewellyn, who was filling in for the injured Josh Drauniniu.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

George Floyd’s family relives his death during Derek Chauvin trial

first_imgABC NewsBy Lauren Pearle, Allie Yang and Haley Yamada, ABC News(NEW YORK) — As the world watches the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd in 2020, Floyd’s family say they refuse to let his memory be tarnished.When video of Floyd’s death was posted online last year, it awoke a new reckoning on policing and discrimination of Black people in the United States. Many say they are looking to the trial to see whether police officers will be held accountable for violence and deaths while on duty in the future.“To actually be in the courtroom and hear them talking about the whole case again and actually seeing Chauvin in the courtroom, it was kind of surreal and intense and emotional,” Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, told ABC News Live.Chauvin faces three charges: second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and a lesser charge of second-degree manslaughter. He has pleaded not guilty.Floyd, 46, died May 25, 2020, while being arrested for allegedly using a counterfeit $20 bill to buy cigarettes. Video showed Chauvin, a white police officer, kneeling on the back of Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes while Floyd repeatedly cried out, “I can’t breathe.”Since the trial began on Monday, a variety of witnesses have delivered emotional testimonies of what they saw during the fatal arrest.“All the witnesses, I just listen to them, and I see that not only do our family, the Floyd family, have to relive this, they have to relive this, too,” said Terrence Floyd, who was present in the courtroom. “So, I just want to send my prayers out to them too, because they’re actually reliving it as we are as well.”Former officers J. Alexander Kueng and two other officers, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao, were charged with aiding and abetting both second-degree murder and manslaughter. Chauvin and those three officers were all fired. Kueng, Lane and Thao are scheduled to begin their trial in August and have not yet formally entered a plea.Floyd’s sister, Bridgett Floyd, visited a Salvation Army food distribution center in Minneapolis on Thursday morning. She loaded boxes with food, as her brother did when he worked at a Salvation Army in the city, and said she was doing it to honor him.Bridgett Floyd told ABC News on Monday she refused to watch the opening statements.“I am not ready to see the video of my brother being murdered,” she said.Bridgett Floyd also weighed in on the defense’s argument that drugs found in her brother’s system caused his death.“They would find any way possible for this police officer to not look bad. But the whole world saw what happened to him,” she said. “The drugs that they say they found in his system did not kill him … [it] was the pressure that was kneeled down in his neck. It’s not surprising to me but one thing’s for sure … the world [has] seen how my brother left this world.”In March, Floyd’s family settled with the Minneapolis City Council for $27 million. Chauvin’s trial is expected to last about four weeks.Terrence Floyd said he’s putting his confidence in the justice system.“I’m confident justice will be served,” he said. “I’m actually putting my trust in the system, and I hope they don’t fail me.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Case round-up

first_imgCase round-upOn 20 May 2003 in Personnel Today This week’s case round-upPresent not past workers Inland Revenue Wales & Midlands v Bebb Travel Plc, CA, 16 April2003, All ER(D) 291 The Court of Appeal confirmed the power to issue enforcement notices toemployers for failing to pay at a rate at least equal to the national minimumwage is limited to present staff and not past staff. Bebb Travel paid certain staff an hourly rate that fell below the nationalminimum wage at that time. After the company ceased to employ thoseindividuals, the Inland Revenue issued an enforcement notice for the underpayment.Using its power under s.19 of the National Minimum Wage Act 1998, the InlandRevenue required the company to pay to the former staff the difference betweenthe wages they had received, and the amount to which they were entitled inaccordance with the minimum wage. Bebb Travel appealed to an employment tribunal against the issue of theenforcement notice on the basis that one could only be served in respect ofexisting workers, not past ones, and the notice was rescinded. The Inland Revenue appealed unsuccessfully to the Employment AppealTribunal, and pursued the matter to the Court of Appeal. The appeal was unsuccessful. An enforcement notice can only be served inrespect of current or future pay periods and so applies only to existingworkers. Even though the notice could be used to remedy previous underpayments,this is subject to the worker still being employed. There was no power underthe Act to issue an enforcement notice in respect of past workers for past pay.(Note: the National Minimum Wage (Enforcement Notices) Bill is currentlyprogressing through Parliament. Once enacted, this will enable the InlandRevenue to issue enforcement notices in respect of former staff of a defaultingemployer.) Reduction in hours not redundancy situation Aylward and Others v Glamorgan Holiday Home Limited, EAT, 5 February2003, All ER(D)249 In this case, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) confirmed that areduction in an employee’s working hours constituted a change to their termsand conditions, and not a redundancy situation. Aylward and his colleagues were employed in a respite care centre. Onaccount of the nature of the services provided, the local authority required aminimum level of staffing to be maintained. Following significant losses, mainly due to poor use of the centre in themonths of January and February, a decision was made to close the centre forthese two months each year. The workers’ existing terms and conditions werechanged from a 52- to a 42-week year, with a consequential reduction in pay. Asmall number rejected this proposal and were dismissed and replaced. The redundant staff brought unfair dismissal claims. The tribunal dismissedthe claims, finding that it was not a redundancy situation. There was nodiminution of the company’s need for staff to carry out the work for which theywere employed, just a reduction in the number of weeks for which they wererequired. The workers’ appeal was unsuccessful. The EAT held that the tribunal was quite correct to focus on the requirementfor staff to do work of a particular kind, rather than on the amount of work tobe done. Comments are closed.
