ISA investors! 4 dividend stocks I think could help you get rich and retire early

first_imgISA 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.

State, county lag behind in Census

first_img Sponsored Content Book Nook to reopen The 2020 Census form takes less time to fill out than a credit card application and asks simply for names and ages and does not include any questions related to finances.“Children are the most unaccounted for in the census,” Boswell said. “It is important that every person, children included, is counted. So, when in doubt— count! And children count!”The 2020 Census makes dollars and “sense” for every individual in every hamlet, every town and every city. So, Boswell said it’s up to the individual cities and towns to make their citizens aware of what could be down the bumpy road for them if they fail to be counted. Antibody testing offers answers for some As Alabama and the nation transition to reopening businesses and the economy, COVID-19 antibody testing is increasingly in demand. “We… read more Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County and Alabama are trending behind the nation in response to the 2020 Census.As Census 2020 numbers continue to roll in, the latest results as reported via show that as of April 28, Pike County is at 52.6 percent overall; Brundidge is at 43.9 percent, Banks at 26.4 percent and Troy at 42.5 percent. Overall, Alabama is reporting a 50.3 percent response rate – well below the 62.5 percent total self-response rate in 2010.

That’s what is riding on the 2020 Census. So, the leadership in each town or city needs to take the responsibility of letting their citizens know what is at stake. If you think COVID-19 is devastating, imagine what a low 2020 Census count would mean for all of us.”Boswell said the 2020 Census is the most critical this country has participated in because of what is stake and just as critical for Alabama.Alabama must exceed its 2010 Census count to keep its current number of federal representative and ensure that it is provided the more than $13 billion in census-derived funding at stake and for it to continue to be considered for new and expanding economic development opportunities moving forward.“It will be much tougher on cities and counties if their sales tax dollars are not multiplied on the federal level,” Boswell said. He pointed to the dollars that have come to businesses and cities during COVID-19 that are providing much needed assistance to businesses and workers during the pandemic. Boswell said, too often, the representatives in Washington are regarded as out of sight out of mind.“But, think about the CARES Act and the assistance to individual workers and small business that are keeping this country moving during this unprecedented time.”A low census will cost on an individual level because taxes will have to be raised to help local counties and municipalities offset the loss of revenue, therefore, those federal dollars are most important.Boswell said the 2020 Census is most importance to the City of Brundidge, which will be classified as a township rather than as a city if its population, falls below the 2,000 mark. The 2010 Census had Brundidge at 2,076.As a township, Brundidge could be restricted to certain matching grant programs and the schools could be impacted. Most often, more dollars are available to cities than townships.Boswell said everyone is encouraged to fill out and send in their 2020 Census forms. The form can also be filled out on line. Google 2020 Census Form.Those who do not respond will be contact by a Census worker before the deadline for the submission of the 2020 Census forms. “Come on folks, we’ve got to get these numbers up,” said Alabama Counts! Chairman Kenneth Boswell. “We’ve got work to do in each county, especially in those like Pike County.”Boswell said it’s time for strong leadership to rally the troops and let them know the far-reaching importance of the 2020 census.“The 2020 census is heavy on  my mind because it will determine whether life is tougher or better for my grandchildren over the next 10 years, Boswell said. “I’m looking out for them, too, because, if we don’t take the five minutes it takes to fill out the 2020 census form, life will be tougher on our grandchildren, on all of us.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingWomen Only: Stretch This Muscle to Stop Bladder Leakage (Watch)Patriot Health ZoneHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Attempted sexual assault reported

first_imgNotre 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 assaultlast_img read more
