Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 7th October, 2020 center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares How a £250 monthly investment in UK shares can become a £15,000 passive income With the State Pension age continuing to rise, making a worthwhile passive income in retirement may become increasingly important for many people.One means of achieving this goal is to invest in UK shares. Although they have recently experienced a market crash that has sent the FTSE 100 lower, over the long run a diverse range of stocks can produce a surprisingly large nest egg. From that, a generous passive income can be drawn that helps you to enjoy greater financial freedom in older age.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…Investing in UK shares to make a passive incomeBuilding a nest egg from which to draw a passive income in retirement may be a simpler and more accessible process than many people realise. Online sharedealing and tax-efficient accounts such as Stocks and Shares ISAs are cheap and simple to set up. Furthermore, regular investment services mean that the cost of buying shares can be as little as £1.50 per trade. This means that investors with modest amounts of money to invest each month can do so.The past performance of the stock market shows that it can turn modest amounts of capital into a large sum of money. For example, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have posted annualised returns that are in the high-single digits since their inceptions. Assuming a similar rate of return of 8%, a £250 monthly investment in UK shares could become a portfolio worth £375,000 over a 30-year time period.From that portfolio, a 4% annual withdrawal could be made to provide a passive income. This equates to an annual income of £15,000, which could make a real difference to your financial situation in older age.Starting to buy UK shares todayOf course, making a passive income from UK shares may seem unlikely at the present time. The stock market is currently facing a challenging outlook that could lead to disappointing growth prospects in the short run.However, its past performance suggests that a recovery from its current position is very likely. After all, it has been able to post new record highs following every one of its previous downturns. And, with there being a lack of other opportunities available due to low interest rates, high house prices and other overvalued assets, the stock market could offer the most attractive means of building a retirement nest egg.In fact, buying UK shares now while they trade at low prices could be a shrewd move. It may even allow you to obtain higher returns as they recover in the coming years. And that could further reduce your reliance on the State Pension. This could increase the size of your nest egg and have a positive impact on the level of your passive income in older age.

Five things we learnt: England v Fiji

first_imgGot your back: Mike Brown is taking to his role as a senior playerWatch out WalesAfter what happened in Brighton on Saturday, with Japan knocking over South Africa, nothing in this World Cup will surprise us. It would not be in the same league as rugby’s biggest upset if Fiji did the same to either Wales or Australia and that is a worry for those two teams, especially the Welsh. There are always moans that the smaller nations get knifed by the fixture list at the World Cup but this time it might just work in Fiji’s advantage. After playing Australia, on Wednesday, they have got an eight-day turnaround before they face Wales, who would have had only five days to recover from playing England. Wales obviously have more depth than the Islanders but they have had a few narrow squeaks against them before. Warren Gatland will have to play his cards cannily against a fully-refreshed Fiji side, who as we saw last week, can play a bit.Fiji threat: Nemani Nadolo gave England a torrid time and Wales awaitTo see all of Rugby World’s latest subscription deals click here The England midfield partnership is yet to click, TMO’s are here to stay, Mike Brown’s excellence and the Fijian threat are all covered… TAGS: Fiji Finishing touch: Billy Vunipola edges over to give England a precious bonus point By Adam HathawayBrad Barritt and Jonathan Joseph still to clickWe didn’t learn anything about this pair at all. Brad Barritt is reliable but when he makes an error it looks even worse because he seems to have nothing else in his armoury, despite his protestations, to make up for it in attack, while Joseph is a threat with the ball in hand and a bit of a gap. What is more worrying for England is the way they failed to gel – although only in their second start together – and time is seriously running out. Whisper it quietly but Sam Burgess could be starting for England at 12 sooner rather than later. He might not fix the midfield entirely, with Burgess you get what it says on the label, but he would give England more than the six metres go-forward Barritt managed against Fiji.Taking time to gel: Brad Barritt and Jonathan Joseph’s midfield partnership is taking time to bed inTMOs are a fact of life and won’t go awayThe Television Match Official is here to stay so we might as well get used to it, and if the technology gets the decisions right, surely that is the way to go, no? If Nikola Matawalu’s try on Friday had been given in the last minute of a World Cup final, and settled the game, the arguments would rage for longer than those about one of Geoff Hurst’s goals in 1966 or Bob Deans’ ‘try that never was’ for the All Blacks against Wales in 1905. If I have taken a day off work and travelled to a game, spent the best part of £300 on tickets, food, beers and the rest – then I couldn’t give a monkey’s if I have to spend a minute or so waiting for the correct decision to be arrived at. Television companies might have a word though if matches start encroaching on the 10 o’clock news. Mind you, they don’t always get it right. Just ask Mark Cueto.TMO palaver: Nikola Matawalu goes over for a try, which is later ruled outEngland need a bit more beefNo one thought they would see an English pack struggling at scrum-time in the World Cup but that is exactly what happened at Twickenham. It is easy to blame the props and hooker – although the loss of Dylan Hartley is hurting England here – but there is more to it than that. The props need someone with a bit of ballast behind them to give them a shove, which makes the absence of Dave Attwood from the 31-man squad even more baffling than it was in August. Being a second row is not entirely about running a line-out. As Dan Cole said at the weekend: “Would I like a 150kg, 6ft 10in lock behind me who who’ll make me look really good? Yes.” Nuff said. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Underpowered: The England scrum has struggled in recent weeksBrown the Lion HeartIf the British & Irish Lions were touring next week – so that means no Leigh Halfpenny – Mike Brown would have a more than decent shot at making the Test team. The full-back is showing no signs of his concussion suffered in the Six Nations and England would probably have been sunk without him against the Fijians. Even if you forget the two tries, both finished with typical Brown aggression, he also pulled off a try-saving tackle, caught everything in the air and has the knack of knowing when to kick and when to run. He is also Chris Robshaw’s right-hand man. Who was on Robshaw’s shoulder when it was kicking off in the Cardiff tunnel in February? Yep Brown. Robshaw couldn’t have taken a backward step even if he had wanted to, because Brown was right behind him.last_img read more

Parent describes cop killing of 16-year-old

first_imgJames Earl Rivera, another young victim of police, holding baby.Stockton, Calif. — James Earl Rivera was only 16 years old and unarmed when he was shot to death by two Stockton police officers, Gregory Dunn and Eric Azarvand, and San Joaquin County Sheriff John Nesbitt. A total of 48 rounds hit the van that James was driving on July 22, 2010, including 18 that pierced his body. The coroner’s report found that the lethal shot was to his head.Carey Downs, Rivera’s stepfather, recounted to Workers World what the family has been able to piece together about that awful day. Police claimed they were chasing a suspected carjacker: “The initial report was five people and one guy jumped in a van and took off. They claimed [Rivera’s] car fit the description, but James didn’t fit the description of the carjacker. They initially stopped him and let him go.”Downs continued, “When they started chasing him again, police did a ‘pit’ maneuver and smacked [his vehicle] through two mailboxes and two garages. Police claimed that he appeared to be backing up and feared for their lives, but clearly James was already injured. … There were several different agencies out there, including highway patrol. They’re claiming they had to put the van in ‘park’ after they no longer detected movement in the vehicle. They claimed they tried to revive his lifeless body by slapping him in the face.”Downs described how Dion Smith, Rivera’s mother, received a call “that the police are chasing one of your sons. As she rushed to the scene, she heard the shots as she was approaching, initially thinking they were just fireworks.” The officers wouldn’t acknowledge her as they put Rivera into the ambulance, and later Smith was threatened with a ticket for following it. Downs said they have never released Rivera’s personal property, dash cam videos or the police report to the family.Downs said of the coroner’s report, “No details were included on the type of ammunition used. The huge hole in his head was evidently shot by a larger gun. The family has a picture of Officer Azarvand putting an AR-15 back in a vehicle.”Fighting for justiceThe family has held numerous speakouts all over the East Bay. “We have blown up the morgue pictures and shown them to people, wanting to demonstrate the brutality used against our son. We have worked with other families [victims of police killings], like the Duenezes and Kenneth Harding’s family. We went to Anaheim [for a statewide protest against police killings]. We are working with other families struggling to find funds for funeral arrangements and deal with their grief.“On Aug. 31,” Downs continued, “we had a barbecue and backpack giveaway with over 200 kids, talking about issues and injustices in the community. When we then tried to march, police formed a line with riot gear, slapping their billy clubs against their hands.”He added, “Our son is innocent; they shot him unlawfully; we want to know why. We’re going to keep fighting until we get some answers. We stand with others, too. We want the families to know they have some other support. It’s not easy, but we’re there for them as well.”When asked about their objectives for participating in an upcoming Oct. 22 statewide protest against police brutality, Downs said the family wants to “bring to light that the officers had cameras, and how they need drug testing; limit the police bill of rights; [and demand] an oversight committee to investigate officer-involved shootings. We need someone on the community side involved, so it’s not just them in the room. Whatever story they spin, it’s their law and that’s what happened. Protection for whistleblowers as well.“FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF condemns junta’s censorship of critics

first_imgNews Prayut Chan-o-cha, Premier ministre de la Thaïlande Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years ThailandAsia – Pacific Judicial harassmentPredatorsFreedom of expressionInternet to go further Follow the news on Thailand RSF_en May 12, 2021 Find out more May 3, 2016 RSF condemns junta’s censorship of critics ThailandAsia – Pacific Judicial harassmentPredatorsFreedom of expressionInternet Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Reiterating its condemnation of the Thai junta’s censorship of the media and online commentators since the 2014 coup, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is marking World Press Freedom Day by relaying Thai journalist Pravit Rojanaphruk’s views and thereby supporting his right to express an opinion with complete freedom. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Organisation Related documents khaosod_article_in_thai.pdfPDF – 60.03 KB News Help by sharing this information News After promising a “Streisand effect” on 5 April in response to the junta’s attempts to silence Pravit, RSF has been pleased to see many media outlets report the fact that the junta prevented him from travelling to Helsinki to attend a World Press Freedom event organized by UNESCO. Today RSF is relaying the article he posted on the English-language website Khaosod on 30 April and is contributing a translation of the article into Thai. “It is now clear that more reports have circulated about this journalist’s views and the violation of his rights than if had been allowed to travel to Helsinki,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The authorities must understand that every attempt to suppress an article may trigger a ‘Streisand effect.’ Above all, they need to understand that criticism and diversity of opinions are essential for a society’s improvement.” Pravit told RSF that the junta fears losing control of the country if it allows criticism and that “any questioning of its legitimacy” is completely off limits for the media. “Eight netizens are now charged with sedition despite posing no threat to national security, just to the junta’s growing sense of insecurity,” Pravit said. “Although most Thai media have failed to hold the military regime to account, ordinary citizens are expressing strong and critical views on social media. Some ended up being arrested as a result, but it is unlikely that the junta can imprison millions of people.” The National Council for Peace and Order (as the junta is officially called) has been cracking down on freedom of expression and information in recent weeks, especially on the Internet, the only space where critics have been able to express themselves freely. The referendum that the junta plans to hold on a proposed constitution is currently a very sensitive subject and any criticism of it could prove very dangerous. An electoral commission recently banned anyone (except the junta) from calling for a vote for or against the constitution. Ranked 136th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, Thailand has seen drastic curbs placed on media freedom since the military staged a coup in May 2014. RSF issued a report on the situation in Thailand in November 2015. Entitled “Media hounded by junta since 2014 coup,” it urges the Thai authorities to stop using the threat of lèse-majesté charges and to repeal all draconian media legislation, including criminal code article 112, the criminal defamation law and the Computer Crimes Act, currently the subject of a disturbing revision. In the past month, there have been many media reports about the travel ban imposed on Pravit, the junta’s censorship, and Pravit’s recent comments. Here are links to some of the reports available online.http://www.voaindonesia.com/content/wartawan-kawak…http://www.voanews.com/content/no-celebration-in-t…http://www.voanews.com/content/media-monitors-repo…http://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/opinion/957069/…http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/05/thail…http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/apr/…http://news.thaivisa.com/thailand/tja-calls-for-pr…https://asiancorrespondent.com/2016/05/world-press…The article that Pravit posted on the Khaosod website on 30 April.Press Freedom Isn’t Free A political cartoon by Stephane ‘Stephff’ Peray created days after the May 2014 coup d’etat for The Nation, a daily English-language newspaper in Thailand. The Nation did not publish the cartoon. By Pravit Rojanaphruk Senior Staff Writer Press freedom isn’t free, and the price is especially high under a dictatorship. People must fight to maintain it, as they must freedom in general. We cannot maintain freedoms of press and expression if we are not willing to pay the price in the face of threats and tyrannies. I paid the price by being detained twice without charge for a total of 10 days since 2014. Today, I was to fly to Helsinki to attend the World Press Freedom Day celebration, an event co-organized by UNESCO and the government of Finland, under the invitation of the latter. I won’t be there Tuesday, however, as Thailand’s military regime has banned me from leaving the country. Those are small prices to be paid, as journalists elsewhere face long-term detention or even assassination. In Thailand, it is worth sticking it out against the junta, which prefers the much nicer name of “National Council for Peace and Order,” because freedom of the press is indispensable not just for a free-thinking society, but for any society wanting its people to coexist on the basis of rational thinking, mutual understanding and dignity. There can be no deliberation or empathy if society cannot publicly communicate and deliberate. Journalists defending free expression are thus not only defending their rights, their indispensable tools of their trade but also the broader rights of society to think, express, articulate and debate publicly. As I write these words, the crackdown on expression is spreading online. On Thursday, eight Facebook and social media users were charged with sedition for defaming junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha, the general who led the coup in May 2014. Three of these eight netizens are now also charged of violating the draconian lese majeste law, which prevents people from speaking and writing critically about the monarchy under threat of long prison terms. Dictators of all stripes try to suppress press freedom and free expression as they see a threat to their autocratic existence. Prayuth has ruled Thailand, deliberately turning it into Juntaland, by making his desires into law through the exercise of Article 44 of his junta’s interim constitution, a set of laws also written by the coup makers after they overthrew civilian rule. He now wields absolute power. Thailand’s military dictatorship is squeezing the public sphere, on the streets and online. The junta is fearful of voices speaking freely – for free and critical thinking are antithesis to military unthinking, where orders must be unquestioningly obeyed. Dictatorships seek to rule over a docile and unthinking population no longer aware of its rights as individuals. The dictator would say: These are the laws, these are the orders, but you won’t go to prison if you don’t break them. Nothing is said about whether the law and the order are legitimate. Nor is it asked, as most media in Thailand have treated this regime like just another elected and legitimate administration. That enables dictatorship, which does not tolerate such questioning because it doesn’t have legitimate answers. Dictators around the world censor because they fear reasoning. Questioning and reasoning undermine the coercion and fear fundamental to maintaining dictatorial rule. A free press and questioning public are threats to dictatorial rule because rational thinking is the opposite of dictator unthinking. It’s through free thought that the might of dictatorial rule becomes naked and illegitimate. Expecting people to be silent and afraid of unjust punishment is unsustainable and runs against human nature, however. The thirst for freedom, including press freedom, cannot be suppressed, for freedom to think and express are what makes us fully human. My duty as a journalist is to continue to scrutinize and criticize the powers that be, dictatorial or not. My duty is also to defend the limited press freedom and freedom of expression that society still has. The junta probably expected that, after two detentions, euphemistically called “attitude adjustments,” and the travel ban, I would keep quiet. I cannot for so much is at stake for Thai society, and it would be tantamount to abandoning my duties as a journalist and citizen to merely watch Thailand turn into Juntaland. I try not to let fear triumph over faith and reason and hope that I will be able to have enough fortitude. Life is too short to be cowed. Today I am supposed to be flying to Helsinki, but the Thai military dictatorship is afraid of scrutiny and criticism, so they banned me from traveling as punishment for speaking out and calling them for what they are – an illegitimate regime. No amount of illegitimate power can change my mind or make them legitimate, however. Others in Thai media have over the decades accrued sufficient love for free expression to resist continued attempts at censorship. I know I am not alone in the struggle for liberty in Thailand. For my part, I will continue to resist the normalization of censorship and dictatorial unthinking, however. Writer’s Note: This column will also be published by Paris-based Reporters Without Borders on World Press Freedom Day as part of its campaign against the curbing of press freedom by Thailand’s military regime.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Zillow reports that the total value of homes in the U.S. is $33.6 trillion—an increase of $11.3 trillion since 2010 and nearly as much as the GDP of the U.S. ($20.5 trillion) and China ($13.6 trillion). The housing market was in the midst of the Great Recession in 2010, and of the $11.3 trillion increase during that span, 14% was from new stock entering the market. California makes up the highest share of the nation’s housing value at 21.2% and 12% of its population. Texas is the next most populated state at 8.8% but accounts for just 5.9% of housing value. The home values of New York ($2.7 trillion); Florida ($2 trillion); Texas ($2 trillion); and Washington ($1 trillion) combined to exceed California’s $7.1 trillion in home value. North Dakota and Wyoming have the smallest share of the nation’s housing market at $66 billion each.Locally, three metros reached the trillion-dollar mark—New York ($3.2 trillion); Los Angeles ($2.5 trillion); and San Francisco ($1.6 trillion). Los Angeles was the only market to add more than a trillion dollars of housing during the decade, gaining $1.1 trillion. California was home to three of the five metros that gained the most value: San Francisco ($827 billion); New York ($657 billion); San Jose, California ($360 billion); and Seattle, Washington ($356 billion). Housing values in the Golden State took a negative turn at the end of the decade, with annual appreciation slowing to less than 2% compared to the more than 20% at the beginning of the decade. The debate about whether the U.S. economy is heading for another recession continued at the end of 2019. Analysis from Quartz said the answer to that is, “of course.” Quartz’s analysis said knowing when a pending recession could occur is nearly impossible. The good news is that no telltale signs of an upcoming economic apocalypse are currently rearing their ugly heads, but the bad news is that it doesn’t necessarily mean that one won’t emerge to shake us to the core once more. For this reason, the best thing we can do is simply try the best to prepare ourselves by being aware of what causes a recession and being ready as we can be once those signs begin to appear.

Subhash Reddy and M. R. Shah. The bench listed the matter after a week.As reported by the PTI, Justice Shah asked the counsel appearing for Gujarat government as to why the state has not filed its counter affidavit on the appeal against the last year’s High Court order granting bail. Justice Shah demanded why the state is not filing affidavits even in some other matters. “Why are you not filing the affidavits? This will not be tolerated. Notice was issued in this matter last year. Even during the last hearing, the state was granted the opportunity to file a counter affidavit. Why is this happening and even in other no affidavits are being filed,” the bench said.The Gujarat High Court had on February 4, 2019 granted bail to the accused (present respondent) in connection with the F.I.R. for the offence punishable under Sections 302, 323 and 114 of the Indian Penal Code, Sections 37 and 135(1) of the Gujarat Police Act and 3(2)(v) of the Atrocities Act.”Considering the police papers supplied by the learned A.P.P. during the course of hearing and as well as considering the affidavit of respondent No.1, it appears that the appellant was identified in T.I. Parade by the complainant and one Ms.Savitaben. Upon perusal of the statements of the complainant and said Ms.Savitaben, it appears that they have not seen the actual occurrence of incident, which occurred inside the factory premises. In other words, except presence of the appellant, no any other role is noticed from the statement of the prosecution witnesses and also from the CCTV footage and images obtained from the mobile phone of the present appellant. Therefore, it is not legal and proper to deny bail to the appellant on such weak evidence. Further, no any past antecedent is registered against the appellant”, the High Court had said in the impugned judgment.”A video of the incident — purportedly showing two people taking turns to beat Vaniya with a stick while another person holds him by a rope tied to his waist — was circulated widely on social media”, reports the PTI.The High Court had noted that section 3 of the said SC/ST Act obliges the complainant in opening recital, to plead the case that the accused is not the member of the said Act. “No such plea is taken in the F.I.R. itself and, therefore, in view of the decision rendered in the case of Georige Pentaiah v/s. State of Andra Pradesh reported in 2008 (12) SCC 531, it is doubtful whether the provisions of said Act will come into play”, the Court had observed.”It is alleged that on the date of incident, at 6 O’clock, the complainant along with her husband and aunt went in the factory area for collecting scrap and in the open place, certain scrap material was found and as they were collecting the same, 5 persons came and without asking anything, started assaulting them and thereafter, they were taken towards the factory of one of the persons. It is alleged that the husband of the complainant was forcibly tied up and the complainant and her sisters were asked to leave. It is alleged that thereafter, the person to whom the injuries were caused was asked to be picked up from the factory and the complainant alongwith other persons went to the factory and found that her husband was lying there and he was taken to the civil hospital, Rajkot where, he was succumbed to injuries. Thus, the complaint came to be lodged”, the High Court had recorded the facts.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
