Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The so-called triple lock is a legal guarantee that the State Pension will rise in line with the highest of average earnings growth, inflation, or 2.5%. It was introduced in 2011 to ensure that the average pensioner’s household income increases each year.The policy strikes me and many others as being fair because it almost guarantees that pension income for most retired people won’t lose its spending power over time. However, because of the coronavirus crisis, the government is spending a lot of money to support the economy. Consequently, speculation is growing that a cash-crunch may be coming for the government, and the triple lock could go out the window.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…The Prime Minister says the State Pension is safe, for nowIndeed, a government up to its metaphorical armpits in borrowings could start looking for areas in which it can save a few bob. But just last month the Prime Minister Boris Johnson reassured Parliament about the government’s commitment to protecting the spending power of the State Pension, saying, “We are going to meet all of our manifesto commitments. Unless I specifically tell you otherwise”.And as far as I’m aware, he hasn’t told us otherwise… yet. But if the triple lock does disappear in future, it will be bad news for pensioners because their real income from the State Provision could start to slip as inflation erodes money’s spending power. And escalating inflation strikes me as being a red-alert risk in the years ahead.Indeed, since the financial crisis of the late noughties, real inflation has been a problem. Anecdotally, I estimate that my own household expenses have at least doubled since 2008. Rising expenses and falling income would be no joke for the nation’s increasing army of ageing people in the leisure class.One thing seems certain – there is much uncertainty in the air for pensioners, both those of today and those joining the ranks soon. Indeed, on top of the potential disappearance of the triple lock, we’ve already seen the State retirement age slipping further away. My father got his State Pension at 65. I’ll need to wait until I’m 67 for mine. Some of those younger than me may need to wait longer still. And it wouldn’t surprise me to see further extensions to the State Retirement age down the road.Here’s what I’d do immediatelySo what can we do? We can build a pot of retirement money to help fund our lifestyles in retirement alongside the State provision, that’s what we can do! Indeed, a second source of income will help protect you from the risks of relying on an uncertain State Pension.And I reckon the best way to achieve a second pot is to invest regular money in the stock market. I’d go for a monthly payment that transfers into a share-backed investment, perhaps a Pension Scheme, Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or a Stocks and Shares ISA.You can go for a fully-managed pension fund, or select your own managed share funds in which to invest. Or you can go for passive, low-cost index tracker funds such as those that follow the FTSE 100, FTSE 250, or the S&P 500 in the US, as well as many others. But as well as all those options, we at The Motley Fool are keen on investing in the shares of individual companies. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Kevin Godbold | Monday, 22nd June, 2020 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Director of Music Morristown, NJ Cathedral Dean Boise, ID [Episcopal News Service – San Juan (Porto Rico)] Le Conseil exécutif de l’Église épiscopale a entendu l’appel de ses deux leaders à une action chrétienne authentique, lancé le premier jour de sa réunion du 9 au 11 juin.L’Évêque Primat Michael Curry a suggéré aux épiscopaliens de prendre pour modèle Esther, l’héroïne de la bible. À l’époque de l’exil des juifs en Perse, elle a été d’abord perçue comme une belle femme, obéissante et relativement passive qui était reine auprès du roi de Perse. Elle en vint à croire qu’elle était appelée à sauver son peuple et grâce à sa rhétorique, réussit à persuader le roi de sauver son peuple, les juifs qui vivaientt en exil en Perse. Elle n’avait pas jusque-là révélé son identité juive.« Je dis cela en toute humilité, vraiment : l’Église épiscopale est peut-être parvenue au royaume pour un tel moment », a déclaré Michael Curry.« Peut-être avons-nous pendant une période fait partie du pouvoir établi, ce qui n’est plus le cas, et peut-être avons-nous profité des avantages d’en faire partie, mais cela peut ne plus être le cas bien longtemps », a déclaré Michael Curry.Dans un  moment comme celui-ci, « un moment étrange au plan national, culturel et mondial – où les choses sont bouleversées, où les vieux modèles ne fonctionnent plus, où les vieilles règles semblent même ne plus s’appliquer, la vérité ne semble plus être ce qu’elle était et soudainement ce qui était erroné devient exact. Soudainement, même le christianisme est coopté par l’injustice, par l’absence de compassion, par l’inhumanité, par l’indécence ».Michael Curry déclare que l’Église épiscopale a en partie pour vocation de porter témoignage d’une manière d’être chrétien qui ressemble en fait à Jésus de Nazareth. Cette manière d’être chrétien n’est « pas de connivence avec la culture, quelle que soit cette culture », explique-t-il.« Ce n’est pas une manière d’être chrétien qui se laisse acheter par un parti politique quelconque, qu’il soit de gauche, de droite ou du centre, c’est une manière d’être chrétien qui ose suivre Jésus, aime la voie de Jésus », en donnant et en pardonnant comme Jésus l’a fait tout en aimant la justice et la miséricorde et en marchant humblement devant Dieu.L’Église a eu bon nombre de slogans et de campagnes, poursuit l’Évêque Primat.« Pourtant, je ne crois pas qu’il s’agisse là d’un nouveau slogan, d’une nouvelle campagne, d’un nouveau programme. En fait, il n’y a rien de nouveau du tout », explique-t-il. « En vérité, ce dont nous parlons maintenant, c’est une manière de suivre Jésus. Il s’agit d’être formé à être des disciples de Jésus et, à partir de là, d’être des témoins dans le monde qui font la différence et portent témoignage d’une manière d’être chrétien : cela ne donne pas l’impression d’être grand chose » et pourtant compte beaucoup lorsque « même le christianisme est pris en otage ».Michael Curry, tout en disant craindre de s’engager sur un terrain dangereux, exhorte les épiscopaliens à écouter la rhétorique politique avec ce que l’on pourrait appeler des oreilles éclairées par la Bible. « Lorsque parfois vous écoutez des voix qui disent représenter le christianisme dans notre vie publique et notre sphère publique, écoutez attentivement ce qui est dit et ce qui n’est pas dit », poursuit-il. Entendez-vous les paroles du Sermon sur la montagne ou de  Matthieu 25,  le résumé de la loi ou les paroles de Jésus à la Cène sur l’amour et le service à autrui, demande-t-il.La révérende Gay Clark Jennings, présidente de la Chambre des députés, se fait l’écho de ces sentiments dans ses  remarques préliminaires. C’est, dit-elle, « un moment très difficile aux États-Unis pour être un chrétien engagé en faveur de la justice et de la paix entre tous les peuples et de la dignité de chaque être humain et il est bon de se rassembler au beau milieu de ces difficultés ».Gay Jennings explique qu’elle prête tout particulièrement attention à trois questions, à savoir : le traitement des réfugiés à travers le monde ; le traitement spécifique des réfugiés au Texas et les efforts de l’État du Texas visant à promulguer la fameuse « loi des toilettes » ; ainsi que la réponse sans faille de l’Église à la sauvegarde de la création et la décision du Président Donald Trump de retirer les États-Unis de l’Accord de Paris sur le climat.L’Église épiscopale prévoit de se réunir du 5 au 13 juillet 2018 à Austin (État du Texas) et comme le dit Gay Jennings : « nous suivons la situation de près avec le souci de la sécurité et de la dignité de chaque personne se rendant à la Convention générale l’été prochain ».Article complet en anglais.

Having seen some of our earlier work the owners of this extraordinary oceanfront site invited us to submit ideas about what a new house there could look like. They had lived in a simple cottage on the site for several years before and therefore had an intimate familiarity with the advantages and disadvantages of living in this spectacular but exposed spot.The design process, complex due to several defining key issues inherent to the site, ended up taking us through some radically different sketch options before settling on the one that was finally pursued.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThese key issues were:- The most magnificent quality of the site, the amazing ocean view, lies to the South while the sun still of course circles around the North. To focus on its unique location while getting natural light inside, the house was designed around a central void with a row of large operable skylights above it, angled to the North.Save this picture!© Sharrin Rees- The site is surrounded by two out-of-scale apartment blocks to the North and to the West, posing privacy as well as aesthetic issues.- Being on the ocean front also meant that the roof height, particularly to the Southern, ocean, side, had to be minimised to reduce the impact on neighbouring residents.   Save this picture!© Sharrin Rees- While the original cottage already had wonderful views onto the rock cliffs across the bay a slight swing of the external wall suddenly opened up expansive open water views in addition to the more intimate bay views.- The Southerly wind on this site is a dominant force, as the clients had experienced over the years. Even on clear days it is strong, quite possibly also cold enough to prevent any outdoor activity or even the opening of any windows.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThese key factors together with of course countless smaller factors and decisions along the way shaped the house to what it is. The unusual but elegant roof shape allows sunlight in while still allowing neighbours to enjoy water views over the lower end. The expressive angled concrete wall mirrors the roof shape but in negative, resulting in a complex facade geometry along the main face, enhanced by the movement of ever changing shadows over the shapes.The light void also contains the central circulation, the stairs. These are light and airy without looking or feeling flimsy. To the North of the are two levels, to the South three, taking advantage of the natural slope of the site.  The main living space is on the Entry level, connecting it with the Northern garden and Pool as a very generous central family area. Upstairs are the bedrooms, on the Southern lower level several areas for more individual activities, Study, Studios and Library.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesAs a consequence of the relentless Southerly winds the house was designed, unusually and against our original instinct, without any opening windows facing South.  Instead large frameless floor-to-ceiling double glazed elements allow uninterrupted views over the Pacific and allow a more intimate visual connection than framed openable glazing elements would have afforded.An outdoor deck is attached to the side of the Living area, allowing outdoor activity on suitable days without interruption of the front row feel the house enjoys.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThe original Southern slope in front of the house was full of building rubble from some previous building incarnation. Once that was all removed several large natural sandstone blocks that had fallen eons ago and stood upright, affording us an unexpected, giant japanese-style rock garden. Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThe materials for the house were chosen for a variety of reasons. First of all they had to be suitable for the harsh salt spray environment where everything gets a thick coating of corrosive salt within a few days. They were also desired to be suitable for the location, reminiscent of flotsam, rich but weathered. Finally, the rich natural palette of coastal colours, greys and red in the rocks, blues and greens in Ocean and sky, provided already a magnificient canvas of hues and textures dominating large parts of the house.   The rich geometry in the house as well as the resulting ever changing play of light in the interior and exterior spaces also meant that we did not feel the need for strong colour or texture, elements we often love to employ in other settings.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThe resulting material palette relies on very few elements, the strong raw concrete, along the outside wall as well as to the living room ceiling. A dark Zinc roof, being allowed to weather. Dark timber in floors and joinery, both offset with white walls and joinery faces. And of course the ubiquitous glass. Both, outside floors and walls as well as interior benches are finished in the same, earthy grey stone. Having these few elements used in a diverse range of applications throughout the house also helped to tie the many different spaces of the house together to a coherent whole. Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesEnvironmental concerns also played a big role in the development of the design. The aforementioned central void allows natural light deep into the heart of the house, eliminating the need for artificial lighting during daytime.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThis void, supported by the roof shape in combination with the operable skylights, also helps to naturally ventilate the entire house as it allows the rising hot air to escape, drawing cooler air behind.  Operable floor vents in the Living area allow for the ubiquitous sea breeze to be let into the house in a controlled manner, all but eliminating the need for Air conditioning.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesHigh performance insulation and double glazing throughout in combination with the high thermal mass in the house allow for utilisation and storage of the Northern solar heat gain in winter, keeping the house warm during the colder months.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesLarge rainwater storage tanks are sufficient to fill the pool and water the indigenous planting throughout the grounds. All lights are low wattage LED type, reducing the electricity use significantly.Project gallerySee allShow lessSix ‘Cathedrals of Culture’ Tell Their Stories in New 3D FilmVideosLatest New Yorker Cover Addresses Ferguson Rift With Saarinen’s Iconic ArchArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeRolf Ockert.

Radio host who campaigned against organised crime gunned down in Tabasco

first_img RSF_en September 25, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio host who campaigned against organised crime gunned down in Tabasco Reports Reporters Without Borders voices its support for EXA FM, a local radio station based in Villahermosa (the capital of the southeastern state of Tabasco), following the fatal shooting of one of its programme hosts, Alejandro Xenón Fonseca Estrada, on 23 September. The organisation is outraged that neither federal nor state investigators had contacted the station nearly 24 hours after the murder.“The lack of any immediate reaction from the police and judicial authorities is all the more incomprehensible as the Mexican congress is currently debating a bill initiated by President Felipe Calderón that would make it a federal crime to attack the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Even assuming Fonseca was killed above all because of his campaigning against organised crime rather than his journalism, there should have been an immediate demonstration of the political will to defend press freedom and restore the rule of law,” the organisation added. “Without waiting for the bill’s final approval, the federal authorities should demonstrate their support for EXA FM, journalists and the Fonseca family by solving this case.”Aged 33, Fonseca hosted a morning show on EXA FM called “El Padrino” (The Godfather) and he was widely known by the nickname of “Padrino Fonseca.” He was also an activist who campaigned against organised crime and headed an NGO. On the evening of his murder, he was on the streets with a loudspeaker and, together with several colleagues, was putting up stickers criticising abductions.He was at the intersection of two avenues at about 9 p.m. when a pickup with a Texan licence plate pulled up alongside him. The passengers in the cabin asked him what he was doing with his stickers. Then they opened fire and then drove off. Hit in the chest, Fonseca died after being rushed to the city’s Los Angeles hospital.The staff of EXA FM told Reporters Without Borders that, by 6 p.m. yesterday, they still had not been contacted by any officials. They also said they were unaware of any prior threats against Fonseca, who started his programme in 2001 on Radio Tabasco before moving with it to EXA FM. He also participated in a local TV programme. His colleagues said “El Padrino,” which was about social issues and had many listeners, might not survive his death as he was its “soul.” NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Organisation May 5, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Mexico News Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the slowness of the federal and Tabasco state authorities to respond to the murder of radio EXA FM programme host Alejandro Fonseca on 23 September in Villahermosa, although congress is currently considering a bill to make it a federal crime to attack journalists.

Updates on Statewide Foreclosure and Eviction Moratoria

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Updates on Statewide Foreclosure and Eviction Moratoria Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily October 28, 2020 2,406 Views The COVID-19 pandemic has been the impetus for federal foreclosure prevention measures. Many states also have taken their own measures. The legal-news site JDSupra has provided a summary of the most-recent statewide foreclosure and eviction moratoria updates.Its updates specifically examine extensions or expirations of relating to properties in California, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, and Texas:California: The  California legislature enacted the Tenant, Homeowner, and Small Landlord Relief and Stabilization Act of 2020 (AB 3088) on August 31, 2020. Among other provisions, the Act protects tenants who have suffered a COVID-related hardship from eviction until February 1, 2021. If the hardship arose between March 4 and August 31, 2020, the tenant needs to provide a declaration of hardship under penalty of perjury, and tenants earning more than $100,000 a year must provide documentation to support their declaration upon a landlord’s request. Florida: On October 1, 2020 at 12:01 a.m., Florida’s eviction and foreclosure moratorium established by Executive Order 20-180 expired. Governor Desantis cited the CDC’s eviction order to explain this decision, stating that Executive Order 20-180 “was permitted to expire to avoid any confusion over whether the CDC’s evictions order should apply in a particular circumstance.” … Thus, subject to other restrictions, foreclosures in Florida can now proceed to judgment and sale.Massachusetts: The Massachusetts moratorium on foreclosures and evictions expired on October 17, 2020. On October 5, 2020, the Massachusetts Trial Court issued Standing Order 6-20, which modifies the eviction process in Massachusetts for pending matters and the filing of new matters. In pending matters, the Order creates a two-tier process: (1) an initial Case Status via videoconference or telephone to determine the applicability of the CDC’s Order and to discuss mediation; (2) for cases that do not resolve, a trial date will be issued … There are thousands of eviction cases which are backlogged in Massachusetts. Given the CDC Order in effect through December 31, 2020, and the restrictions set forth in the Standing Order, the backlog will continue through the end of the year.New York: On October 4, 2020, by Executive Order 202.67, Governor Cuomo continued the temporary suspension of “any specific time limit for the commencement, filing, or service of any legal action, notice, motion, or other process or proceeding, as described by the procedural laws of the state,” as set forth in previous Executive Orders (specifically 202.8, 202.14, 202.28, 202.38, 202.48, 202.55, 202.60, and 202.67) for actions in the New York State Courts until November 3, 2020. For any civil case, the suspension is effective until November 3, 2020, after which any time limit to bring an action will no longer be tolled without a further order. As a result, no defaults in civil practice are currently permitted.Texas: To date, Texas has not instituted a state-wide order banning foreclosures, although some counties and cities have done so. With regard to evictions, on September 17, 2020, the Texas Supreme Court entered Emergency Order 25, which strengthens the CDC protections against evictions for 60 days by requiring citations to include language informing tenants of their ability to stay eviction for 60 days by executing and filing a declaration regarding their efforts to mitigate.For more detail on each of these states’ provisions, visit the full article at JDSupra.

Kirubakaran and Justice P. Velmurugan further opined,”It is incumbent on the Ministry of AYUSH to open at least one hospital for each system in every State and instructions shall also be obtained by the learned Assistant Solicitor General in this regard.”BackgroundThe High Court by order dated 10.09.2020 had raised certain queries to be answered by the Department of AYUSH regarding the number of posts available in each Indian system of medicine and number of posts vacant and the time required to fill up the said posts.An affidavit and details were filed by Mr.G. Karthikeyan, (Assistant Solicitor General) answering the queries raised by the Court.It was submitted that the Department of Ayurveda has got 95 posts and the Department of Unani has got 25 posts in the categories viz., Advisor, Joint Advisor, Deputy Advisor, Assistant Advisor, Medical Officer, whereas, the Department of Siddha has got only 5 posts in the said categories.Court’s ObservationsThe Court noted that it was evident that number of posts allotted to the Department of Siddha is very meager compared to other departments of AYUSH.The Court further noted that even the negligible number of five posts in each category have not been filled up in the Department of Siddha.It was stated before the Court that the vacancies have to be filled by the UPSC and in this regard, a proposal has been sent to UPSC on 17.07.2019 and the recruitment process would be carried out by them.Notably, In view of this Submission, the Court, Suo Motu, impleaded “Union Public Service Commission, Dholpur House, Shahjahan Road, New Delhi – 110069″.

When that is so, ‘Kabasurakudineer’ should be popularised and should be made available throughout the Country so that all the people living in every part of India could be benefited out of Siddha medicine viz., ‘Kabasurakudineer’ which is an effective treatment for Covid-19.” (emphasis supplied)Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
