Miliband is in favour of electoral reform, a move that sits with his vision of a progressive Labour Party.Yet his message took a further hit last week when another grandee, Blair-era cabinet minister Lord Reid, shared a platform with David Cameron to speak out against any change to AV. whatsapp Labour Party split over AV Share Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tuesday 26 April 2011 8:59 pm whatsapp
“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Sunday, 10th May, 2020 The recent decline in the stock market may convince some investors that generating a passive income from stocks is too risky. In fact, some companies have cut or cancelled their dividends in response to the uncertain outlook facing the world economy.However, stocks with defensive characteristics may be worthy of consideration for investors who are seeking a passive income. They may offer a relatively robust financial outlook that means their dividends are affordable. Following recent stock price falls, they could also offer a high income return as part of a diverse portfolio of stocks.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…Defensive qualitiesCompanies with defensive characteristics are less likely to be impacted by changes in the outlook for the economy. For example, their sales and profitability may not increase by a significant amount during economic booms. Likewise, their financial performance could be relatively unchanged during an economic downturn.As such, the uncertain outlook for the world economy may fail to impact on the affordability of their dividends. For passive income investors, this could equate to a robust passive income that continues to grow at a rate that is equal to, or even above, inflation over the long run. Therefore, buying defensive stocks may mean your passive income is more reliable than it would be through buying cyclical stocks with financial prospects that are more dependent on the performance of the economy.High passive income returnsDefensive stocks may be able to afford to pay their current dividends over the medium term. But, in many cases, the recent stock market decline has hurt investor sentiment towards them.This means many defensive, passive income shares now offer high dividends yields that are above their historic averages. This suggests now could be the right time to buy them, since high yields can be an indicator of a margin of safety.Therefore, as well as obtaining relatively high yields due to recent stock price falls, you may be able to generate capital growth over the coming years. Defensive stocks may become more popular alongside the wider stock market. This is because investor sentiment towards equities gradually improves in the coming years.Risk reductionOf course, a company’s defensive status doesn’t guarantee it will produce a solid passive income. Any company can experience unforeseen challenges that weigh on its financial performance.As such, it’s crucial to purchase a diverse range of companies that operate in different sectors when building a passive income portfolio. This may include businesses that have exposure to varied industries and geographies to further reduce risks.By spreading your capital across multiple industries and regions, you’ll become less reliant on a small number of sectors and geographies. This could further improve the reliability of your passive income. It will also enable you to enjoy a growing level of financial freedom over the long run.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Congress Focus on CongressFrom the office of Rep. Val Demings Representative Val Demings of the Florida 10th District, along with U.S. Rep. Al Lawson (FL-05), Rep. Alma Adams (NC-12), introduced the HUD Inspection Act of 2019. This bill forces the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to take greater action when federal assisted housing properties fail to come into compliance with federal housing laws.“Every American should have the right to live in a safe home,” Rep Demings said. “This important new legislation will crack down on property managers who receive federal money while allowing their buildings to fall apart. As Chief of Police, I joined residents in fighting substandard management that left behind leaking water that made kids sick, unsafe electrical systems, and piles of garbage. No apartment in the greatest country in the world should ever have to get to that point before action is taken. I commend Rep. Lawson for his leadership on this important legislation.”“It is my firm belief that everyone should have access to decent, safe and affordable housing regardless of their income or zip code,” Rep. Lawson said. “We’ve seen HUD properties in dilapidated conditions pass inspection, and this is absolutely unacceptable. This bill will provide much-needed transparency in the inspection process and strengthen enforcement actions against properties owners who fail to maintain their properties.”“Access to safe, affordable housing should be a right for everyone,” Rep. Adams said. “More than 10 million people rely on federal rental assistance for housing, and too many of them are living in HUD properties that have passed inspection, despite being unsafe or in disrepair. I’m proud to co-sponsor this bill to hold HUD, its inspectors and property managers accountable for maintaining and improving living conditions in federally assisted housing.”BackgroundLast year, an investigation by NBC reported that there is an increase of more than 30 percent of failed physical inspections. In addition, although failed inspections are required to yield immediate action by HUD as well as the property’s landlord, many residents are sometimes left months without any action taken to upgrade or improve living conditions.Earlier this year, Reps. Lawson, Adams and Demings sent a letter to Department of Housing and Urban Development Inspector General Rae Oliver Davis to express concerns regarding the physical inspection process for HUD-assisted housing. They requested a full audit of HUD’s physical inspection process including how many units have been inspected, the pass/fail rates for each facility, and the amount of time HUD and participating landlords take to resolve and alleviate issues that result in unsafe environments for tenants.This bill is endorsed by the National Housing Law Project, National Low-Income Housing Coalition, Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation, and the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio.The HUD Inspection Act of 2019 cosponsors are: Reps: Charlie Crist (FL-13) Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC), Nydia Velázquez (NY-07), Sanford Bishop (GA-02), Jaime Raskin (MD-08), James P. McGovern (MA-02), Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), Barbara Lee (CA-09), Sylvia Garcia (TX-29), Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40), Juan Vargas (CA-51) The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

The collateral victim of tensions between Egypt and Qatar, Hussein was arrested on his arrival in Egypt on 23 December 2016 on a flight from Doha, where he worked at Al Jazeera’s headquarters. He is expected to leave the police station in a few hours.He had flown to Egypt just to visit his family but he was detained on charges of “membership of a terrorist group” and “spreading fake news.” Egypt regards Al Jazeera’s coverage as biased in favour of the Muslim Brotherhood, the movement that backed former President Mohamed Morsi but is regarded as a terrorist organization by the current government.“What an enormous relief for Mahmoud Hussein and his family,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “After four interminable years of arbitrary detention, this journalist’s release shows that charges against him were completely baseless and that his only crime was working for Al Jazeera. But he has yet to be fully vindicated inasmuch as his conditional release still leaves him as a suspect in the eyes of the authorities.”Hussein’s detention kept on being extended until a court ruled in favour of his release on 23 May 2019. But, at the last moment and against all expectation, the authorities opened a new investigation against him on the same charges, and this served as grounds for keeping him in prison.Despite repeated requests by his family, he was not given permission to leave prison to visit his ailing father. He was only after his father’s death in November 2019 that he was allowed out of prison to attend the funeral.Hussein talked on camera to journalists in a January 2020 TV report designed to show conditions in Egypt’s prisons. The footage was carried widely by pro-government media under the headline: “The correspondent of terrorist Al Jazeera recognizes being well treated in prison and receiving the necessary medical care.”Under the conditions of his release, Hussein will be required to visit a police station several times a week in order to answer questions and report on his activities.The number of journalists and bloggers detained in Egypt now stands at 33. This is more than in any other country in the world except China and Saudi Arabia.Egypt is ranked 166th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

The following chart shows historic total demands in the FMWD’s history.“This drop in demands has occurred despite the doubling of population in the service area since 1956 and is due to local residents’ strong response to the Governor’s call for conservation,” said FMWD Board President Richard Atwater. Last year, as a result of one of the worst droughts in recorded history, the Governor asked for mandatory conservation by consumers.For the month of June 2016, overall water use in the FMWD service area decreased 24% when compared to an average of June 2013 and June 2014. The State has changed its conservation mandate and is using an average of calendar year 2013 and calendar year 2014 as an updated benchmark for measuring water savings for water agencies throughout California.According to new Stress Test findings, FMWD can meet all demands and forgo setting a formal conservation standard. However, a strong conservation ethic continues. Shown below are water-saving performance numbers for agencies within the FMWD service area:1. Numbers in parentheses are use above calendar year 2013.2. The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) instituted a new baseline (average of CY 2013 & CY 2014) effective June 2016.“To see water demands this low is an achievement for the entire FMWD service area,” stated Foothill MWD General Manager Nina Jazmadarian. “While water supply conditions have improved and restrictions relaxed, we must continue conservation as the Californian way of life.”For savings tips, please go to http://bewaterwise.com/.Foothill Municipal Water District provides imported water to Crescenta Valley Water District, La Cañada Irrigation District, Mesa Crest Water Company, Valley Water Company, Lincoln Avenue Water Company, Las Flores Water Company and Rubio Cañon Land & Water Association. Kinneloa Irrigation District, another retail agency, takes no water from Foothill.

Jupiterimages/PHOTOS.com>>/Thinkstock(DUNWOODY, Ga.) — Video taken from a Georgia police officer’s body camera purports to show an EMT punching a 17-year-old patient in the back of an ambulance.The video begins as an officer approaches the back doors of an ambulance in Dunwoody, Georgia. As the officer approaches, commotion can be seen inside the emergency vehicle through the door windows.After the officer opens the back door, the EMT can be heard screaming expletives, and another officer is seen trying to restrain her and remove her from the ambulance through the side door, toward the front of the vehicle.The video was provided to ABC Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV through the City of Dunwoody on Wednesday.The teen was handcuffed behind his back and restrained at the ankles on a stretcher, WSB-TV reported. He was supposed to be transported to the hospital for an evaluation,At one point, the officer who restrained the EMT asks her, “What is wrong with you?” The EMT then replies that the teen spit on her.“That is a kid,” the officer says. “That is a child — a 17-year-old child. What are you doing?”The officer then handcuffed the EMT and arrested her for assault and battery, according to WSB-TV. She was released from jail after posting bail.The boy’s parents, who wished to remain anonymous, told WSB-TV that their child didn’t deserve to be treated that way.The boy’s mother said said the video got “her blood boiling.”“He’s a child, you know,” the boy’s father said. “No human being deserves that.”The incident occurred on Saturday night, American Medical Response, said in a statement to WSB-TV. The EMT is no longer an employee with the company, the company said, adding that they take the “matter very seriously.”“The safety of patients in our care is of the utmost importance to us and we have hundreds of employees in the area who care for hundreds of patients in DeKalb County each day,” the statement read. “Our paramedics have tremendous pride in what we do, and we are honored to have the responsibility to provide care for residents.”American Medical Response did not comment on the incident further, citing the ongoing investigation.ABC News reached out to the Dunwoody Police Department for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
