I think these businesses could help any investor generate a passive income when owned as part of a diversified portfolio. With that in mind, here are two of my favourite dividend stocks I’d buy for a passive income in 2021. FTSE 100 champion Consumer goods giant Unilever (LSE: ULVR), does not offer the highest dividend yield in the FTSE 100. However, I think the company’s payout is extremely sustainable. That’s why I believe it is perfect for a passive income portfolio.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…At the time of writing, the company offers investors a dividend yield of around 3%. That’s approximately 1% below the blue-chip index’s average. Nevertheless, the business has an enviable dividend track record. It has increased its distribution every year by an average of several percentage points for a decade. I think this trend is highly likely to continue. As one of the largest producers of consumer goods in the world, manufacturing everything from food to personal grooming products, Unilever’s business model is relatively defensive.Indeed, despite the economic pain caused by the pandemic over the past 12 months, the company’s sales have only increased. I think this growth is a testament to the group’s passive income qualities, and that’s why I’d buy the firm as a long-term FTSE 100 passive income holding. Passive income for life If one is looking for passive income shares, I reckon one of the best sections of the market to consider is the utility sector. Utility companies, such as SSE (LSE: SSE), have long been considered great income investments. The utility market is highly regulated, and cash flows are relatively stable. This means these businesses can pay out a large percentage of earnings to investors. Assets also tend to have long lifetimes. Therefore these firms don’t need to invest as much as other companies in other sectors to remain competitive and profitable. As such, I think it could be worth considering SSE for a passive income portfolio of FTSE 100 shares. Shares in the organisation currently support a dividend yield of around 5%, and this income is backed up by cash generated from the company’s utility assets. SSE is also investing heavily in renewable energy. I think this is incredibly important because by doing so, SSE is future-proofing its operations. Renewable energy is the future, and utility companies like SSE can’t afford to ignore this trend. To that end, the business is in the process of constructing one of the world’s largest wind farms in the North Sea with joint venture partner Equinor. This investment in growth, coupled with the group’s existing operations should, in my opinion, support the stock’s dividend to investors for many years to come. That’s why I’d buy this FTSE 100 utility for a passive income in 2021. center_img Rupert Hargreaves | Monday, 11th January, 2021 | More on: SSE ULVR Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Unilever.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office struggling to retain deputies

first_img June 17, 2017 at 8:09 am Please enter your name here Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom TAGSOrange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonOrange County Sheriff’s Office Previous articleLocal builders dedicate new home to local familyNext article2,074 determined to be homeless in Central Florida Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Sharon Lee Gates UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 From Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonCentral Florida is booming.Job growth in our region is outperforming all other communities in the nation. Tourism, always the lifeblood of Central Florida, has not disappointed, with 42- million passengers going through Orlando International Airport annually, Central Florida is the number one meeting destination in the nation.Orange County is also experiencing population growth, which has risen 15% in the last five years alone.So with all of these positive indicators, why is the Orange County Sheriff’s Office struggling to retain its deputies?The OCSO has 1.87 officers per 1,000 citizens, which is well below the Florida agency average of 2.5 officers per 1,000. And unfortunately, the hiring trend is going in the wrong direction. Data shows that the number of officers working for the department is decreasing. There were 638 deputies hired since 2011, but 661 have left the agency. That’s a net-negative of 23 officers at a time when most agencies are increasing their forces.The deputies of the OCSO put their lives on the line every day, but they need help. The OCSO is one of the best-operated divisions in the state, so many are asking what the problem is and why are they having trouble keeping staff?The recruitment challenges that the OCSO faces is primarily non-competitive pay, and competition locally, regionally, and nationally against other departments. The Orlando Police Department works close within the lines of OCSC’s protection district, which causes loss of staff between the two agencies.The vision of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office is to build a trust with the community and reduce crime, but the only way to accomplish these objectives is to increase the number of officers. OCSO deputies have a dangerous and difficult job, and it’s hard to go through the rigorous and time-consuming training that it takes to become a deputy in Orange County. It’s time to give back to these men and women that keep us safe every day. The OCSO budget request will not go unrecognized by the Board of County Commissioners.

Guinness Premiership Final preview – Wasps vs Leicester

first_imgSaturday May 31, 2008 Guinness Premiership Final preview – Wasps vs Leicester It will be a world record club attendance when London Wasps face off against Leicester Tigers in the Guinness Premiership Final at Twickenham. It has been a long, gruelling road for both teams but they’ll have no doubt recovered from their respective semi-final clashes a fortnight ago and will be prepared for one final showdown.The battle-hardened World Cup winner, Lawrence Dallagio will play his 399th game for London Wasps, leading a typically robust forward pack including James Haskell and Phil Vickery. There was some shuffling in the back line to be done for Wasps as Riki Flutey shifts to stand-off (following the Danny Cipiani injury) and Josh Lewsey steps up to the wing while Mark van Gisbergen gets a start at fullback.It’s an all-international set of backs for Leicester who will look to Andy Goode and All Black Aaron Mauger to be the generals. Englishmen Harry Ellis, Dan Hipkiss, and Tom Varndell, Samoan Alesana Tuilagi and Irishman Geordan Murphy, complete the Tigers back line. It’s the same back line (and forward pack) that took Leicester Tigers into the final, but will it be enough to shut down Dallagio and his Wasps?No doubt, it will be a war of attrition and perhaps even another last minute drop goal is on the cards? Whatever the fate of the Premiership Trophy is, it is sure to be a matter of inches separating the two sides. This short clip is a bit of a build up for the game, and features a few of the better moments from this season that helped both sides get to this point.

Adam Zaruba’s unbelievable one handed catch to score for Canada!

first_imgTuesday May 17, 2016 Adam Zaruba’s unbelievable one handed catch to score for Canada! We’ve probably all dreamt of pulling off slick one-handed catches in a match, and while there have been a few who have done it in the lineout occasionally, it’s safe to say that we’ve never seen it done quite like this before! Enter Canada’s Adam Zaruba at the Paris 7s.Zaruba stretched up, barely leaving the ground, and took the catch with casual aplomb. He looked almost as shocked as everyone else, but brought it down easily and actually only touched the ball with two hands when it came to placing it for a very well deserved try.The beauty of this was it was a genuine catch, it wasn’t just resting on his hand or pulled in from a drifting pass in the backline. He got his mit around it and held on. This type of thing just doesn’t happen with a rugby ball, and certainly not from a restart kick travelling from that height.Gilbert, the ball manufaturers, of course took a bit of tongue in cheek credit for it, using the moment for a great bit of marketing, tweeting: “Gilbert Synergie XV-6 + Adam Zaruba = 7’s Heaven”It was an outstanding, miracle play that you probably won’t see again for a while. Haters might find a way to bring this down (they do that), but give the man his dues – he took a chance and it stuck.And for those of you who didn’t quite get the commentator’s reference, he’s talking about the great sport of cricket, where one handed catches are a bit more common, but also impressive.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it , Sevens Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

For this reason, a single room contains the barbecue area, kitchen, dining room, living room, terrace and pool facing the sea, setting the bedrooms towards the back, with smaller views towards the hills.

‘Do It Like Durham’: Takiyah Thompson speaks on toppling white supremacy

first_img“Do It Like Durham!, Workers Solidarity — Tear Down White Supremacy” was the theme of a Workers World Party forum here on Jan. 27. The Black History Month event brought together working-class organizers who are challenging and toppling the racist, sexist, anti-transgendered ideas and institutions of capitalism.Featured speaker was Takiyah Thompson, a Durham, N.C., freedom fighter who, along with their comrades, tore down a racist Confederate statue in that city on Aug. 14. Thompson spoke about the decision to act and the need felt for concrete action to underscore that anti-racist activist Heather Heyer‘s death at the hands of Nazis and KKK members in Charlottesville, Va., two days before was not in vain.Thompson described the toppling and the reverberations across the country, as more racist statues were taken down in following months.Thompson told the crowd the movement that started in Durham will not stop until all charges against Durham activists are dropped, all monuments to racism have been removed, and white supremacy has been destroyed.Mahtowin Munro of the United American Indians of New England talked about the struggle to abolish Columbus Day and celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day instead: “When we go into [City Council] hearings to talk about why we need to get rid of Columbus Day, we are told by bigots … that we were cannibals and that Columbus brought civilization to us. When we talk about genocide, they say that we all died off from diseases as though untold numbers of massacres never occurred.“And they say, ‘Why don’t you people get over it?’ To which we respond:“‘We can’t get over something that you remind us of every single day, with your white supremacist holidays, settler whitewashing of our experiences and history, and physical manifestations of our oppression. We can’t get over something that continues to impact our lives through oppression and intergenerational trauma. We can’t get over the fact that this racist garbage continues to be forced on our children as history.“‘So we seek to tear down the symbols of Columbus, just as Takiyah Thompson and so many others are tearing down the hated symbols of the slavocracy. As Indigenous and Black people, our struggles and lives are linked, as they have been for centuries, so it is especially meaningful when we are united in tearing down these hated symbols.’”Christine Renee of the WWP Trans Caucus and Stonewall Warriors told the audience: “Right now, the legal status and livelihoods of over 300,000 people from Haiti, Honduras and El Salvador are currently at risk. Just today there was a rally for Siham Byah, a local activist who was deported last month to Morocco. Also at risk now are the livelihoods of transgender people here in Massachusetts.“Three weeks ago, in North Adams, Mass., Christa Leigh Steele-Knudslien was killed by her husband. This marks the beginning of yet another year stained with anti-trans violence. Last year was reported by many news outlets to be the deadliest year to be transgender on record, with about 28 trans people being killed. The culprit behind the struggles of im/migrant and transgender in America is the exploitative capitalist system.”Describing the discrimination she faces as a young person with disabilities searching for a job, Kristin Turgeon of WWP called on people to fight the dead-end system of capitalism that oppresses all poor and working people.Two Latinx union leaders from Harvard University, in UNITE HERE Local 26 and Service Employees Union 32BJ, were welcomed with cheers when they spoke of their organizing to defend temporary protected status for immigrants and elevate TPS to permanent residency. Andre Francois, president of United Steelworkers Local 8751, representing Boston and Randolph School bus drivers, also spoke. (See “Bus drivers’ leader on Trump’s attack on Haitians,” WW, Feb. 1.)Tonight’s meeting was chaired by Hazel of the WWP Trans Caucus. Delicious home-cooked Haitian food was provided by Chantal Casimir of USW Local 8751.WW photo: Stevan KirschbaumFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Detention of IFJ Directors reflects dreadful state of media freedom in Sri Lanka

first_imgPark and Worthington of the IFJ were detained at a locally organized press freedom meeting in Colombo and held in their hotel from 30 October 2013. They were subjected to harassment by means of lengthy interrogations by defence and immigration officials, as well as by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), for three days.Although they were accused of violating visa regulations, the authorities have allowed them to fly out of the country without any charges. The latest incident involving two international media personnel has come at a time when Colombo, which is under international pressure to improve the worsening human rights situation in the country, is set to host the next Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting on 15 November 2013. Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts “The harassment of two top international media rights workers simply shows that Colombo considers itself above the law and takes no note of international pressure or condemnation. The safety and security of local journalists and activists involved in this incident are at great risk. The government must do everything in its power to ensure their safety,” Reporters Without Borders and JDS said in the joint statement. Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge A careful look at the detailed descriptions provided on the website of the Department of Immigration would reveal that there is no special visa category for journalists. It is however stated that if anyone travels to Sri Lanka as a reporter, they should obtain press accreditation, which has nothing to do with any particular visa category.“The high-handed action by the defence and immigration authorities yet again reflects the dreadful state of media freedom in Sri Lanka, which has already been recognized as a one of the worst countries for journalists. The situation for journalists and media workers is still shockingly precarious, four years after the Sri Lankan government formally declared an end to the civil war,” the two information rights organizations said in a joint statement. According to the IFJ, they were taken from the meeting to their hotel against their will, their passports were confiscated and they were not allowed to leave to board their planned flight on 31 October. The police have inserted a device into Park’s laptop and appears to have downloaded files. Mass media and information minister Keheliya Rambukwella went one step further and publicly accused them of engaging in “anti-government activism” in breach of their visa conditions. At least 39 media workers have been killed or abducted and made to disappear while many media institutions have been bombed and burned, forcing many in the profession to flee the country. Not a single perpetrator has been brought to justice. Sri Lanka is classified by Reporters Without Borders as a country “under surveillance” because of its violations of freedom of expression and is ranked 162nd out of 179 countries in its 2013 press freedom index. RSF_en Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders and its partner organization, Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka (JDS) unequivocally condemn the detention and harassment of International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) Asia-Pacific Director Jacqueline Park and Asia-Pacific Deputy Director Jane Worthington in Colombo last week.
