ISA investors! 4 dividend stocks I think could help you get rich and retire early Tension over Brexit may have remained considerable, and this could continue to be the case through 2020 as difficult trade talks — and the possibility of a no-deal withdrawal from the European Union — hover into view. And as a consequence, the rip-roaring property price growth of recent decades has been consigned to history, as has the electric profit-making ability of the housebuilders.Despite this uncertainty, however, for many first-time buyers, the opportunity to get on the housing ladder has been too good to pass up. The Help to Buy government incentive scheme continues to offer buyers free money to leap onto the ladder. Lending from the ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’ sits at record levels. Meanwhile, Britain’s lenders are locked in a fierce mortgage rate war and borrowers can thus enjoy rock-bottom rates, reduced fees and other bonuses.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…More rates cuts on the way?It’s clear that Britain’s economy is cooling as we move into 2020, and ordinarily one would think that this could start to weigh on homebuyer appetite. Recent industry data has shown little to no evidence of this, however. In fact, it’s possible the stagnating economy could actually boost homes demand as it could force the Bank of England to cut rates to jump-start things.Bank officials (including governor Mark Carney and Monetary Policy Committee member Gertjan Vlieghe) have recently signalled that a rate cut could be just around the corner, and inflation data released on Wednesday has supported the case for a reduction in the Threadneedle Street benchmark.According to the Office for National Statistics, consumer price inflation in the UK fell to 1.3% in December from 1.5% in the prior month. This is the lowest rate of inflation since November 2016 and gives the Bank more headroom to slash interest rates before long.Indeed, foreign exchange trader Olivier Konzeoue of Saxo Bank said that a rate reduction now looks the more likely scenario when the MPC meets later this month. He thinks the chances of a cut now stands at 62% versus 50% before the inflation news came out.Want to retire rich?All things considered, it’s no surprise that City brokers largely expect profits among Britain’s homebuilder to keep moving higher. Sure, not at the rate at which they were before the summer 2016 Brexit referendum, but at a pace which is still conducive to supporting big dividends.Vistry Group and Persimmon, firms that have both served up positive trading updates in mid-week trade, offer monster prospective yields above 6% and 8%. But Taylor Wimpey (whose 8.8% reading makes it the biggest yielder of all the UK-focused builders) and Cairn Homes (benefitting from the similar housing shortage in Ireland and offering a 9.2% yield), are worth a mention too.So sizeable have yields been across the housebuilders in recent times, and so colossal Britain’s supply and demand imbalance, that I’m convinced these firms could provide titanic returns in the coming years. I certainly plan to hold both Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey for many, many years.

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) emailed students Sunday night alerting them to a report of attempted sexual assault that occurred early Saturday morning.The reported attempt took place near the lakes as the suspect and victim were walking back to the victim’s residence hall from off campus, and the report was made to a campus administrator, the email stated.The email quoted “du Lac: A Guide to Student Life,” Notre Dame’s official policy book, and warned students of the risks of sexual assault as well as the standards of consent.“Sexual assault can happen to anyone,” the email stated. “Anyone initiating any kind of sexual contact with another person must seek consent and not engage in sexual contact unless consent is given.“According to du Lac, ‘Consent means informed, freely given agreement, communicated by clearly understandable words or actions, to participate in each form of sexual activity. Consent cannot be inferred from silence, passivity or lack of active resistance.’ Importantly, intoxication is not an excuse for failure to obtain consent, and a person who is incapacitated — whether by alcohol, drugs or otherwise — is incapable of giving consent.”Students should maintain caution and awareness of their surroundings to avoid risks, the email stated.“On college campuses, perpetrators are more likely to assault an acquaintance than a stranger. Being aware of your own safety and watching out for your friends are important steps you can take to reduce the risk of sexual assault.“The perpetrator, not the survivor, is responsible for any instance of sexual assault. Nothing a survivor does or does not do is an excuse for sexual assault.”Tags: NDSP, sexual assault
