Investors could use many different assets and strategies to generate a passive, monthly income. Some of these require almost no effort, while others can be a bit more challenging.Many investors have turned to buy-to-let property in the past, but this is not without its problems. Rental properties can be expensive to maintain, and it may only take one bad tenant to eliminate profits. Owning a small business is another strategy, although this does require additional time and effort. That being said, it can be a highly lucrative strategy if done right. 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…However, the approach I would use to generate a monthly passive income is buying UK shares. By following this strategy, I believe I can generate a passive income while investing in the businesses I use every day. There may also be the potential for capital gains in the long term. Passive income investmentsUnlike other passive income strategies, by acquiring a diversified portfolio of UK shares, I think I can build a steady, growing income from some of the world’s largest businesses.I would target a certain type of company for an income portfolio. Many of the corporations listed on the London stock market offer dividends, but not all of these businesses are worth buying in my opinion.Avoiding companies with the highest dividend yields is usually a good place to start. A higher than average dividend yield is usually a sign the market does not believe the payout is sustainable. Instead, I would focus on companies with average level dividend payouts and, perhaps more importantly, a high level of dividend cover. In my opinion, businesses in defensive sectors also make the best dividend investments. Two great examples are pharmaceutical groups GlaxoSmithKline and Hikma. Other companies that I would consider buying for a passive income portfolio include financial services group IG and mining businesses BHP and Rio Tinto. DiversificationA quick way to build a diversified dividend portfolio is to buy an investment trust. I’m a big fan of investment trusts and believe they make the perfect passive income investments.The City of London Investment trust is an excellent example of why these vehicles are excellent income investments. It currently offers a dividend yield of more than 5% and has a track record of increasing its payout every year for the past four decades. Using investment trusts such as City of London, as well as a diversified portfolio of UK shares is, I believe, the best way to generate a monthly passive income. Buying investment such as those listed above is relatively straightforward and, unlike buy-to-let property, does not require tenant management. All these companies are managed by experienced individuals, who can do the work on behalf of investors. All one has to do is sit back and watch the money roll in.  Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 17th January, 2021 Image source: Getty Image See all posts by Rupert Hargreaveslast_img read more

Paul Tito – Cardiff Blues

first_imgTAGS: Cardiff Blues LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Paul Tito getting a little worked up The Blues captain, famous for his flame red hair, took some time out to chat to Rugby World about nicknames, pre-match routines, strangling Jason Spice and being slightly fearful of life after rugby. RUGBY WORLD: So what are your captaincy traits?PAUL TITO: I just do what comes naturally. I don’t like to say too much and I share the workload, so a few of the other boys help out. The best form of leadership is delegation.RW: Does your nickname Fish come from being a good swimmer or New Zealand’s orange roughy fish?PT: The first time I meet people, I lead them on for a little bit and say it’s all because I’m a good swimmer. When I get to know them more, I tell them [about the fish]. You should feel privileged!RW: What’s your pre-match routine?PT: I spend a lot of time sleeping, then Jason Spice usually drives round to mine. A lot of the boys get there early, but I don’t like to be there any longer than I have to be. They play disco music in the changing room. When I first came over I was like, ‘Are we going to a nightclub or playing rugby?’ It took me a while to get used to, but I don’t mind it now.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen or heard on the pitch?PT: Probably me strangling Jason Spice when Taranaki played Wellington in the NPC once! He’d been annoying me the whole game so near the end I strangled him and he went purple in the face. He’s an annoying guy on the field, but he’ll have a beer with you after the game.RW: Do you have any phobias?PT: I’m scared of life after rugby. I think about it every day. I’ve got a few ideas, but haven’t made any big decisions yet. I went straight into rugby so I’ve never had a real job or done a real day’s work, so it’ll be a shock to the system.Super-strength, The Welsh-Kiwi boat race and being a massive foodieRW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby? RW: Who’s your ideal woman?PT: Eva Longoria. I used to watch Desperate Housewives, but it’s on too late for me over here. PT: I’d like to be a good father one day. When I finish rugby, I’m also looking forward to getting into another sport. Squash I think; I back myself on a squash court so I’d like to take it up seriously.RW: If your house was on fire, what three things would you save?PT: My Taranaki rugby jersey from my 100th game, my wife, Hayley, and my flat-screen TV. It’s on the wall, but I think I’d have time to get it; I’d just yank it off.RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?PT: I’d like to have Tongan-Samoan strength in terms of my rugby. They’re so strong. In life, unlimited money. Then you could do what you want all the time.RW: What’s your favourite joke?PT: I don’t really have one. The biggest joke since I’ve been over here is the Welsh-Kiwi boat race. They make a big deal of it and have more players to pick from than us, but we kill them every time; it’s 3-0 to us. They blame each other, but are all quite average. Gethin Jenkins is in charge and he should look at himself before blaming anyone else.RW: Any embarrassing moments?PT: Playing Waikato in the Ranfurly Shield, I was back covering a kick and the ball had a horrible bounce, I missed it and they scored. I was pretty gutted and there was a picture in the paper of me diving to try to get the ball.RW: Stranded on a desert island, what three things would you want with you?PT: I’d definitely need food – chicken and I love a good steak. I’ve also got a South African friend in Wales so I love a good braai, too. A pillow because I love my sleep. And I’d love to have my TV there. I like Home & Away and the early X Factor shows. A few of those people need their friends to tell them they can’t sing – I’ve been told that plenty of times.last_img read more

Julian Huxley’s great try vs Wales 2007

first_imgThursday Mar 6, 2008 Julian Huxley’s great try vs Wales 2007 Wallabies and Brumbies back Julian Huxley was diagnosed this week as having a brain tumour. The tumour is benign according to doctors, and was revealed after a regulation MRI following an unfortunate knock he took against the Reds on the weekend which had him convulsing on the field.As a well known newspaper put it, professional rugby player one day, brain tumour patient the next. Such is life, these things happen and hope, courage, and support is what Huxley needs right now.The 28 year old Brumbies fullback is currently seeking further advice from specialists and neurosurgeons and it is yet to be confirmed if and when the surgery will take place.After seeing a player convulsing on the field, those 4 minutes of time off on Saturday seemed like ages. To then hear the dreadful news this week has been incredibly sad, only made better by Julian’s positive attitude and spirit, talking about playing again next season and not retiring from the game entirely.I’ve dug up this clip of a brilliant solo effort by Huxley from last year to basically pay respect to the man and wish him well for the future. I trust everything will be okay in the end and we hope to see him playing rugby again as soon as humanly possible.

Required fields are marked * Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Cameron Turner poses with 2015 Muir graduates and MPYD staffers.When asked in June to clarify statements he’d made about the children of single mothers in a 1995 book, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush told reporters, “It’s a huge challenge for single moms to raise children in the world that we’re in today, and it hurts the prospects, it limits the possibilities of young people being able to live lives or purpose and meaning.”As if the mere fact of being raised by an unmarried mom restricts a person’s life choices and potential. But kids all over America – including a lot of youngsters here in Pasadena’s public schools – are disproving that idea every day.Bush was right about single moms dealing with big challenges. However, many of those challenges are linked more to economic hardship than the physical absence of a child’s father. But most conservative Republicans are loathe to support increased wages or expanded job training (as with President Obama’s call for free community college) as strategies for reducing the poverty faced by many single moms or to broaden the “possibilities” open to their children.The wrongheadedness of Jeb Bush’s claim about the children of single moms having limited possibilities is highlighted by the fact that Bush said this while running for President. Two of our most successful two-term Presidents and one of Bush’s rivals in the current Republican race for the White House are the sons of single mothers. Growing up in economically challenged circumstances without their dads didn’t limit the possibilities for Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Ben Carson “to live lives or purpose and meaning.” (FYI: I’ve got major problems with the prejudices and ignorance reflected in Dr. Carson’s views on Muslims, global warming, Planned Parenthood, gays and the Black Lives Matter movement but we can discuss those at another time.)But one needn’t look all the way to the Oval Office, the surgeon’s table, or the pinnacle of any other profession to locate individuals who were raised by single moms and have achieved great personal success. We are surrounded by proof that the kids of single mothers have unlimited possibilities. A great place to witness this fact is here in our Pasadena Unified School District.Whenever I return to my beloved alma mater, John Muir High School — to announce football games, participate in Alumni Association events or to speak with students through organizations like the Black Students Union, ASB or MPYD (Mentoring & Partnership for Youth Development) — I am always inspired to see how our youth are overcoming significant obstacles. Through determination and diligence, combined with the guidance and optimism of dedicated school officials and family members (including plenty of single moms and some single dads, also), students are producing in the classroom, blossoming through extracurricular activities, avoiding the snares of the streets, graduating and embarking on promising futures. Jordan Davis-Scott, salutatorian for the Muir class of 2015, trumpeted these successes in a goosebump-raising commencement speech in which she declared:“We were expected to lose and that’s where they were wrong! We knew that our hard work would change the outcome of those negative expectations…It doesn’t matter who doesn’t think you’re worthy, or if you’re expected to struggle. It doesn’t matter if you are disadvantaged, viewed as inferior and aren’t expected to win. What matters is your fight and how you finish!”Miss Jordan’s inspired words ring true not only for Muir’s 2015 graduates, but for students of every grade level throughout the PUSD and, indeed, all across our nation. Limited possibilities? No. More like limitless!Thanks for listening. I’m Cameron Turner and that’s my two cents.

Facebook vs. the Fair Housing Act?

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Facebook vs. the Fair Housing Act? About Author: Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that it is charging Facebook for violating the Fair Housing Act by allowing landlords and home sellers to use its advertising platform to engage in housing discrimination.HUD claims Facebook enables advertisers to control which users receive housing-related ads based upon the recipient’s race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, disability, and/or ZIP code. HUD alleges that Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of “targeted advertising.”“Facebook is discriminating against people based upon who they are and where they live,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “Using a computer to limit a person’s housing choices can be just as discriminatory as slamming a door in someone’s face.”HUD originally leveled a complaint against Facebook back in August 2018, MReport reported, claiming that Facebook violates the Fair Housing Act by enabling advertisers to:display housing ads either only to men or women;not show ads to Facebook users interested in an “assistance dog,” “mobility scooter,” “accessibility,” or “deaf culture”not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “child care” or “parenting,” or show ads only to users with children above a specified agedisplay/not display ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in a particular place of worship, religion, or tenet, such as the “Christian Church,” “Sikhism,” “Hinduism,” or the “Bible”not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “Latin America,” “Canada,” “Southeast Asia,” “China,” “Honduras,” or “Somalia”draw a red line around ZIP codes and then not display ads to Facebook users who live in specific zip codesHUD’s charge against Facebook claims that Facebook allows advertisers to specifically exclude people whom Facebook classified as parents; non-American-born; non-Christian; interested in accessibility; interested in Hispanic culture; or a wide variety of other interests that closely align with the Fair Housing Act’s protected classes. Additionally, through its charge, HUD claims Facebook allowed advertisers to draw a red line around certain neighborhoods, excluding those neighborhoods from advertisements.In a release, HUD stated that through its charge, it “seeks to address unresolved fair housing issues regarding Facebook’s advertising practices and to obtain appropriate relief for the harm Facebook caused and continues to cause.”According to HUD, the agency’s charge will now be heard by a United States Administrative Law Judge “unless any party to the charge elects to have the case heard in federal district court. If an administrative law judge finds after a hearing that discrimination has occurred, he may award damages for harm caused by the discrimination. The judge may also order injunctive relief and other equitable relief, as well as payment of attorney fees. In addition, the judge may impose fines to vindicate the public interest. If the matter is decided in federal court, the judge may also award punitive damages.”Read HUD’s charge here.

first_img Colvin said there is no better or more fun time for parents to read to or with their children than during the Christmas season.“The excitement that surrounds the Christmas season makes reading even more fun,” she said. “It is a great time for parents and children to come together as a family to read. We have a large selection of Christmas books and books with holiday crafts that families can enjoy making together. And, we also have a large selection of Christmas movies for families to enjoy together.”Colvin suggested that families with young children might want to make the reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” a Christmas Eve tradition.“Sitting around the Christmas tree and reading this classic Christmas story creates special memories for the children and their parents,” she said. Santa Claus is coming to the Troy Public Library to hear the wishes of all the good little boys and girls in town.“It’s official. Santa said that he will be at the library on Thursday night, Dec. 12 for Stories With Santa,” said Teresa Colvin, TPL children’s librarian. “We are excited to have such an important guest at our library. So, we are encouraging all parents to mark their calendars now for that special night.”Santa Claus will arrive at 6 p.m. and will stay at the library until every child has had an opportunity to whisper his or her Christmas wishes to him. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day The Troy Public Library is a great place to visit during the Christmas season.“When children are out for the holidays, the library provides good ‘literary’ entertainment,” she said. “Often, because of the weather, children are stuck inside. Children should only do so much screen time and there’s nothing like curling up with a good book on a cold or rainy winter day. And, the Troy Pubic Library has books for all interests and for all seasons.” Email the author Skip Published 5:53 pm Monday, December 2, 2013 You Might Like Artist’s watercolors celebrated in exhibit The Roots Exhibit: Late Artists of Pike County features 24 artists who left broad strokes on the Pike County community…. read more Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… By The Penny Hoarder Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Tropical Storm Dorian churns toward Puerto Rico where governor urges residents to prepare

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Tropical Storm Dorian is bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to the Leeward Islands Tuesday as residents in Puerto Rico prepare for a possible impact.Dorian is expected to strengthen Wednesday as it approaches Puerto Rico, where tropical storm warnings and hurricane watches are in effect.Though Dorian is forecast to remain a tropical storm as it passes through Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, the storm may near hurricane strength and hurricane conditions cannot be ruled out.Puerto Rico could see up to 8 inches of rain as well as flash flooding, life threatening rip currents and surf conditions and possibly near hurricane-strength winds on Wednesday.Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez has signed an order declaring a state of emergency as she warned residents to prepare.“Hurricane Maria was a lesson for us and nearly two years after its devastating passage, today we can say that we are better prepared,” Vazquez said Monday.More than 7,400 generators and three mega generators are already on the island, according to the governor. At least 360 shelters will open with a capacity of holding 48,500 people.By the end of Tuesday, radios and satellite phones will be delivered to mayors and police departments throughout the island at all municipalities, officials said.Vazquez added that she is in communication with the White House and there is a new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) representative on the island assisting in response coordination.“The response to Tropical Storm Dorian will be on top of a complex recovery effort,” the FEMA spokesperson said. “Even a smaller and less severe storm could have significant impact.”Dorian is forecast to move in between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic Wednesday night into Thursday, affecting residents in the Dominican Republic.If Dorian still has strength at that point, it may track through the Bahamas and eventually toward Florida this weekend as a tropical storm.The East Coast of Florida might be impacted Saturday night into Sunday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
