Over the years, planning for financial aspects of retirement has changed dramatically. You may still remember the years when it was a lot more common for people to work for an employer that would ensure that its staff had a robust retirement pension. Things have long changed. Now for the most part, the onus is on individuals to secure their retirement years.I’ve recently had several friends ask me how they can start building a retirement nest egg if they have close to nothing saved by the age 40. Although it helps to start investing for retirement early, I believe it’s still possible to have a financially secure retirement even if you start investing later in life. Therefore, today I’ll discuss why I believe dividend stocks should be key for anyone building a retirement pot.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…Dividends matterI’d first open a Stocks and Shares ISA to start investing with all my gains free of tax liabilities. If it’s possible to initially invest a capital amount, that would of course go a long way towards building wealth. Regardless of the amount of the initial investment, I believe everyone should put a set amount each month into a retirement account. 2020 has so far been an unnerving year to be an investor. In January and early February came new share price highs. Then we witnessed the market crash in March. But after reaching extreme oversold levels, many shares have since recovered some of their losses. Thus there’s a lot of noise in the markets, potentially causing stress and confusions for many investors.However, if you focus on growing your dividend income rather than the short-term volatility, then it becomes relatively easier to relax as your retirement money keeps piling up. Dividends provide investors with cash flow in all market conditions. And the reinvestment of dividends can have a positive impact on total returns.My Motley Fool colleagues regularly cover FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares and funds that you could consider adding to a diversified retirement portfolio. They point out that despite various downturns and even crashes, over the long run, stock markets in the UK return about 6% to 8% annually, on average.Power of compoundingBy reinvesting the proceeds, one becomes a permanent net buyer of shares. And the investor participates in the stock market’s general growth over the years and decades.Let’s assume that you’re now 40, with £100 in savings, and that you plan to retire at age 65.Despite the market crash, you decide to invest that £100 in a fund and make an additional £3,600 in contributions annually at the start of the year. You’ve 25 years to invest. The annual return is 6%, compounded once a year. At the end of 25 years, the total amount saved becomes £209,367.Saving £3,600 a year would mean being able to put aside £300 a month or about £10 a day. And if you were to save £500 a month, the total amount would become £348,942.Retiring on dividends sounds like a dream, right? As I’ve shown, seasoned investors know that with persistence and self-discipline, they can build a robust net egg and make that dream a reality.

Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Tampa, FL TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab The Rev. Canon Randal Gardner[Church Divinity School of the Pacific] The Rev. Dr. W. Mark Richardson, dean and president of Church Divinity School of the Pacific, announced Aug. 4 that the Rev.

I hope that grounding will help us make the chapel of the school a place of blessing for many.”Gardner, who holds an M.Div. from CDSP, a certificate of theology from Ripon College Cuddesdon, and a D. Min. from Virginia Theological Seminary, will share his time during the fall semester between CDSP and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, where he has served as canon for congregational life since 2013.Ordained to the priesthood in 1985, Gardner served congregations in the Diocese of Olympia for twenty years and for seven years was rector of St. James by-the-Sea, La Jolla in the Diocese of San Diego. From 2006 until earlier this year, he served as an adjunct faculty member in the doctor of ministry program of the Virginia Seminary, preparing doctoral students to complete their independent research and writing to earn their degree.Church Divinity School of the Pacific, a seminary of the Episcopal Church and a member of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, educates students in an ecumenical and interreligious context to develop leaders who can proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world through traditional and emerging ministries.

Please enter your comment! David OpinionBy Greg Jackson By now, many of you know that I am a huge movie-buff. So much so, that if you read closely you can find a movie reference in virtually every column I write. Well, to save you some time searching for the reference here, let me tell you that one of my all time favorite movie lines is from the 2003 film, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (and Lady). It is the scene in the library where our heroes have gathered, all but Dr. Henry Jekyll and Mr. Edward Hyde, and the place has been overrun by the villain, who turns out to be “M”, and his marksmen. Each hero is battling it out with the marksmen, showcasing their extraordinary talent in a whirlwind of bullets, pages from books and shattered glass — a rather chaotic scene. Then, the camera pans to Captain Nemo who calmly walks into the fray and is confronted by an armed man who points his firearm at Captain Nemo and commands him to “Draw your pistol.” At that moment Captain Nemo with all the commotion around him looks the man in the eye and says: “I walk a different path.” And in that moment Captain Nemo defines himself within this storm of unrest as a composed warrior who does things his way before unleashing a can-of-whip … well, you get where I am going.Captain Nemo: “I walk a different path.”So, with that magnificent intro, here is my question: who will step up to be Apopka’s Captain Nemo? Watching news reports and reading articles about the “antics” taking place in the City, folks are led to believe that chaos and mistrust are brewing in the City of Apopka. Many residents feel ignored, some organizations feel there are political favors being given to outsiders, certain small businesses feel disregarded and there is a general sense that the only vision Apopka should follow is the one given to them, not one that citizens work together to create. Sadly, many Apopkans feel that they have found themselves existing in a whirlwind of discontent and mistrust. However, no one has stepped out to proclaim that a different path is available and possible. Sure, there are many complaints that all sound too familiar, for instance we have heard that: the development taking place around the 429 offers very few job opportunities within Apopka for Apopkans; no one seems to be committed to improving the economic development opportunities on the south side of Apopka; or that no one seems to know or understand the vision or direction of the City. Instead of a calm, confident voice stepping forward to bring new ideas and direction, many Apopkans appear to be apathetic and paralyzed with the fear of challenging the way things are. This, in turn, has led to delayed progress.The Captain Nemo I envision should not be an elected official because he must have the freedom to speak without the threat of political retribution. The Captain Nemo I envision is neither a part of the clergy nor academia because he or she must have the freedom to kick a little butt and be able to depart from the civilized use of the Queen’s English when situations call for it. The Captain Nemo I envision never looks for trouble (which disqualifies me), but when necessary can navigate through the turmoil that will certainly present itself at some point-in-time. In fact, the Captain Nemo I envision is not just a single person, but a group of friends, neighbors, youth, seniors, voters etc., who come forward to kick a little butt to create the change they wish to see. So whether it is small business development, job creation, affordable housing opportunities, holding politicians and candidates to their word, it is time for Apopkans to commit to walking a different path together to bring about the progress that will benefit Apopka as a whole — in my humble opinion.

RSF_en September 9, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Constant harassment of journalists condemned News to go further Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation Reporters Without Borders deplored continuing harassment of independent journalists in Algeria after the managing editor of the daily paper Le Matin, Mohamed Benchicou, and cartoonist Ali Dilem, of the daily Liberté, were arrested today and taken to Algiers central police station. It demanded that efforts to intimidate those who dared to criticise or poke fun at the regime cease immediately and said it expected to see proper legal procedures strictly followed. It noted that President Abdelaziz Bouteflika had presented himself as a supporter of press freedom before the European Parliament in June and had said that “no media outlet or journalist has been persecuted in Algeria.” Benchicou and Dilem had defied three police summonses on grounds that journalists “do not have to submit their work for police inspection.” They told a press conference they would not obey any more summonses and would keep any explanations or arguments “for the courts alone.” Dilem said he had confidence in Algeria’s legal system.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — A hoax call to police was reported Tuesday morning at the Florida home of Parkland activist David Hogg, county officials said.Someone called authorities at 8:39 a.m. claiming there was a barricaded person at Hogg’s Parkland home, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.SWAT officers responded and found no one home, the sheriff’s office said.Such hoax calls — also known as “swatting” — are intended to bring about a big police response.Authorities are investigating to determine who made the call, the sheriff’s office said. In the wake of the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas that killed 17 students and staff, several students like Hogg, 18, organized a youth-led movement to push for stricter gun laws that has spread across the country. The movement quickly made Hogg and some of his classmates have become nationally recognized figures.Hogg has not tweeted about the swatting report. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Workers move one step closer to equal pay questionnairesOn 14 Jan 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article The consultation period on the equal pay questionnaires, which will givestaff the right to request pay information on a colleague of the opposite sexat the same level, closed on Friday. The new questionnaire, due to come into force as early as April as part ofthe Employment Act, will enable individuals to request key information fromtheir employers to establish if they are receiving equal pay and, if not, thereasons why. Based on the response, employees will be able to decide if they have alegitimate claim for a tribunal. Employers will not have a statutory obligationto provide answers, but a tribunal will be entitled to take a negative view oforganisations that refuse to answer or evade the questions. Audrey Williams, employment law specialist at Eversheds law firm, warnedcompanies to be prepared. “Although employers will be familiar with thequestionnaire method, some might find this open approach something of a cultureshock. “They should look closely at their procedures for monitoring pay scalesto ensure they will not encounter any problems if presented with aquestionnaire,” she said.
