To supplement the stocks that I own for the purpose of capital growth, I like to hold stocks that generate income. In this way, I can focus most of my efforts in trying to generate outperformance on the active side of my investing ideas. The passive-income investing side (once up and running) should require only a little attention to work well for me. Here’s a few ways that I can get dividend stocks to help me out.A lump sumThe first way I can go about passive income investing in via a large lump-sum investment. For example, let’s say I get an inheritance windfall or have sold my house and am downsizing. This surplus amount can go straight into dividend shares that can offer me regular income. 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…Making £450 a month this way would be fairly simple. If I assumed I could get an average dividend yield of 6%, then I’d need to make £5,400 a year. To generate this, I’d need to invest a lump sum of £90,000. This probably isn’t the most popular way to go about passive-income investing, as such events to accumulate a large amount of money in one go are slim. But if this happens to me, it’s definitely a viable way to make things work.The benefit of this idea is that I get to put all the money to work in one go. The downside is that I’m overly concentrating my focus purely on dividend stocks. A wiser idea in my opinion if I had such a lump sum would be to put half of it in dividend stocks, and use the other half for other ideas.Passive income investing in chunksA second way I can get to £450 a month via passive income investing is by buying dividend stocks each month. I won’t be able to generate sizeable dividend income straight away, but it will build up over time.For example, let’s say I invest £1,000 each month into stocks I am positive on. I’ll assume again that I can get around a 6% dividend yield on average. I’ll also presume that I reinvest any dividends I get paid. In this case, it would take me just over six years to achieve my goal. At this point, my investment pot would be at that £90,000 figure, allowing me to then enjoy the £450 a month on average from passive-income investing.The benefit of this idea is that I can manage my cash flow better. Putting away a chunk every month is an easier way for me to manage my finances, and puts less stress on it. The downside is that I will need to wait for several years before I get to start enjoying the passive income.  I can solve for this by not reinvesting the dividends, but this will lengthen the time by a year and a half. Whichever way I decide to invest, it’s clear that I can make a success of passive-income investing, and make it work for me. Passive income investing: 2 ways I can make £450 a month Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Photo: Jayson Casper[Diocese of Egypt] So much is wrong with the Arab world today, it can obscure all that is right. At the heart of both are interfaith relations, and the CARAVAN art exhibition showcases the good while addressing the bad. International in scope, its contributions stretch across continents, touching the famous and simple alike.“We know much more about the West than the West knows about us,” said award-winning Egyptian actor Khaled el-Nabawi at the Cairo opening on April 4. “But art is sincere and can help us build bridges.”The event was held at the upscale Westown Hub residential complex, sponsored by SODIC, a large real estate development company committed to promoting the arts for humanitarian purposes. Like them, Nabawi is one of the famous, a group often associated with the arts scene. Prior to Cairo, CARAVAN presented at the acclaimed Eglise Saint-Germain-Des-Pres in Paris, and will travel next to St. Martin-in-the-Fields, at the famous Trafalgar Square in London.But it is the simple who are most affected by strife between the religions. And the arts often bypass them.CARAVAN began in Cairo in 2009, seeking to promote interreligious peace and build cultural understanding. Nabawi’s words were well-chosen, for this year’s exhibition is titled The Bridge. Forty-seven premiere and emerging artists, all with connections to the Middle East, designed works specifically to highlight the unity of the peoples of the region – Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Arab, and Persian.“There is no true conflict between religions in their essence,” said Sheikh Abdel Aziz el-Naggar of the Azhar, also appearing at the opening. “It comes from those who use religion for their domestic or international interests.”Perhaps this is a message readily received by arts aficionados in Europe and upper-class Egypt. But what about the common man, manipulated by forces touching his faith?“We as a church believe in dialogue,” said Bishop Mouneer Hanna Anis of the Episcopal Church in Egypt, prior to introducing his Ahzar colleague. “But especially after 9/11, there have been many efforts between men of religion that have not impacted reality as these conflicts continue.”Something more is needed, and Anis praised CARAVAN specifically.“We have to be creative so that dialogue reaches the people,” he said. “Paul-Gordon has done this through art, to help build harmony between cultures, and to bring people together.”The Rev. Paul-Gordon Chandler, an Episcopal priest, is the founder of CARAVAN. An American, he grew up as a minority Christian in mostly Muslim Senegal. He was deeply influenced by the local arts scene, but also disturbed by the tensions between the two faiths.There has to be a better way, he thought, but it was not until his years as an Episcopal priest in Cairo’s St. John’s Church that a vision began to form. So while he now tours the world highlighting the religious unity represented in Middle East artists, he desires to see something greater take hold.“In the Middle East the public visibility of things is very important, it gives credibility to endorse at the grassroots,” he said. “It is part of acclimatizing the environment toward positive religious relations.”High-profile public events make possible the changes at street level. Forty percent of proceeds from art sales will benefit Educate Me, an educational initiative supporting the children of an underprivileged neighborhood in Giza. Last year, $48,000 was given to projects in Egypt and Morocco.Spin-off projects for CARAVAN are in development in Jordan and Tunisia, and a Maltese-themed initiative will soon tour every nation of the Mediterranean. Middle Eastern art emerges from the region and is taken to the West, but it also returns to spread the message at home.And lest one think the message of interfaith harmony for the West is only given to like-minded elites, Chandler is also taking The Bridge to rural settings in the United States where misunderstanding of the Arab world is prevalent.“Art provides a context to address the issues indirectly,” said Chandler. “Art doesn’t stop conflict, but that is not its function. It can’t change events but it can change people.”And this, for Nabawi, is the hope for CARAVAN and other artistic endeavors in the region. “I am convinced that humanity will prevail,” he said.“Art is the only thing that can solve what politics breaks.”— Jayson Casper writes for Arab West Report, Christianity Today, Lapido Media, and other publications, and blogs at asenseofbelonging.org. He has previously written an article on another Anglican interfaith initiative, the Imam-Priest Exchange.

President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela calls for peace

first_imgNicolás MaduroThe following is an edited reprint from an opinion/editorial,“Venezuela: A call for peace,” that first appeared in the online edition of the New York Times on April 1.  Go to http://tinyurl.com/mkco5w9.  The recent protests in Venezuela have made international headlines. Much of the foreign media coverage has distorted the reality of my country and the facts surrounding the events.Venezuelans are proud of our democracy. We have built a participatory democratic movement from the grassroots that has ensured that both power and resources are equitably distributed among our people.According to the United Nations, Venezuela has consistently reduced inequality. It now has the lowest income inequality in the region. We have reduced poverty enormously to 25.4 percent in 2012, on the World Bank’s data, from 49 percent in 1998. In the same period, according to government statistics, extreme poverty diminished to six percent from 21 percent.We have created flagship universal health care and education programs, free to our citizens nationwide. We have achieved these feats in large part by using revenue from Venezuelan oil.While our social policies have improved citizens’ lives overall, the government has also confronted serious economic challenges in the past 16 months, including inflation and shortages of basic goods. We continue to find solutions through measures like our new market-based foreign exchange system, which is designed to reduce the black market exchange rate. And we are monitoring businesses to ensure they are not gouging consumers or hoarding products. Venezuela has also struggled with a high crime rate. We are addressing this by building a new national police force, strengthening community-police cooperation and revamping our prison system.Since 1998, the movement founded by Hugo Chávez has won more than a dozen presidential, parliamentary and local elections through an electoral process that former American President Jimmy Carter has called “the best in the world.” Recently, the United Socialist Party received an overwhelming mandate in mayoral elections in December 2013, winning 255 out of 337 municipalities.Popular participation in politics in Venezuela has increased dramatically over the past decade. As a former union organizer, I believe profoundly in the right to association and in the civic duty to ensure that justice prevails by voicing legitimate concerns through peaceful assembly and protest.The claims that Venezuela has a deficient democracy and that current protests represent mainstream sentiment are belied by the facts. The anti-government protests are being carried out by people in the wealthier segments of society who seek to reverse the gains of the democratic process that have benefited the vast majority of the people.Anti-government protesters have physically attacked and damaged health care clinics, burned down a university in Táchira State and thrown Molotov cocktails and rocks at buses. They have also targeted other public institutions by throwing rocks and torches at the offices of the Supreme Court, the public telephone company CANTV and the attorney general’s office. These violent actions have caused many millions of dollars worth of damage. This is why the protests have received no support in poor and working-class neighborhoods.The protesters have a single goal: the unconstitutional ouster of the democratically elected government. Anti-government leaders made this clear when they started the campaign in January, vowing to create chaos in the streets. Those with legitimate criticisms of economic conditions or the crime rate are being exploited by protest leaders with a violent, anti-democratic agenda.In two months, a reported 36 people have been killed. The protesters are, we believe, directly responsible for about half of the fatalities. Six members of the National Guard have been shot and killed; other citizens have been murdered while attempting to remove obstacles placed by protesters to block transit.A very small number of security forces personnel have also been accused of engaging in violence, as a result of which several people have died. These are highly regrettable events, and the Venezuelan government has responded by arresting those suspected. We have created a Human Rights Council to investigate all incidents related to these protests. Each victim deserves justice, and every perpetrator — whether a supporter or an opponent of the government — will be held accountable for his or her actions.In the United States, the protesters have been described as “peaceful,” while the Venezuelan government is said to be violently repressing them. According to this narrative, the American government is siding with the people of Venezuela; in reality, it is on the side of the 1 percent who wish to drag our country back to when the 99 percent were shut out of political life and only the few — including American companies — benefited from Venezuela’s oil.Let’s not forget that some of those who supported ousting Venezuela’s democratically elected government in 2002 are leading the protests today. Those involved in the 2002 coup immediately disbanded the Supreme Court and the legislature, and scrapped the Constitution. Those who incite violence and attempt similar unconstitutional actions today must face the justice system.The American government supported the 2002 coup and recognized the coup government despite its anti-democratic behavior. Today, the Obama administration spends at least $5 million annually to support opposition movements in Venezuela. A bill calling for an additional $15 million for these anti-government organizations is now in Congress. Congress is also deciding whether to impose sanctions on Venezuela. I hope that the American people, knowing the truth, will decide that Venezuela and its people do not deserve such punishment, and will call upon their representatives not to enact sanctions.Now is a time for dialogue and diplomacy. Within Venezuela, we have extended a hand to the opposition. And we have accepted the Union of South American Nations’ recommendations to engage in mediated talks with the opposition. My government has also reached out to President Obama, expressing our desire to again exchange ambassadors. We hope his administration will respond in kind.Venezuela needs peace and dialogue to move forward. We welcome anyone who sincerely wants to help us reach these goals.

He got a close look at how important the milk presentation is to dairy farmers, the racers and the fans.“You don’t realize what it really means until people come up to you ask to get their picture taken with you as you’re holding the milk leading up to the race,” he said Tuesday as he prepared for a media blitz to promote ADA Indiana and the milk tradition. “We had families do that and we had a little boy following us for a little while. He wanted his picture taken with the milkman and the rookie milkman. That stands out and kind of tells you how important it is. We know it’s important because we deal with milk every day being a dairy farmer, but when people outside the dairy world see it you know how important it really is. Milk is the real thing there at the 500.”Wright’s 4th generation dairy farm started in the current location just a few months before Louis Meyer first requested a glass of buttermilk after winning his second Indianapolis 500.“My mom and dad and three brothers and myself make up All Wright Farms and we’ve been milking there since 1933, which is over 30,000 straight days. we’ve not missed a day and we’re pretty proud of that. We’re proud to be dairy farmers here in Indiana and I’m proud to represent the dairy farmers when I give the bottle here in victory lane this year.”The Rookie this year, Janet Dague of Dague Dairy Farm near Kewanna in Fulton County told HAT it’s a smart process to have a rookie learning from a veteran.“It is a good thing that I am a rookie this year. Alan is showing me the ropes, and yes, it’s overwhelming but exciting at the same time, and I’m really glad he’s here to give me pointers and tips.”This year’s race marks the 60th consecutive year of the traditional bottle of milk for the winning Indy 500 driver, and it was in 1960 that Dague Dairy Farm started.“My husband Andrew and I have been added to the farm for 20 years. We bought out his grandparents and now we are in partnership with his parents. We’re the third generation and we are working on bringing in the fourth generation!”Both Dague and Wright sit on the board of American Dairy Association Indiana, Inc. And Dague is not the first woman milk person at the 500. Anita Schmitt of Evansville did the duties in 2007 and 2008, and Sam Schwoeppe from Huntingburg represented diary farmers in 2008 and 2009.

Three newspaper seized by state security police

Justices M. S. Ramachandra Rao and T. Amarnath Goud directed that the High Court of Telangana and the High Court of Andhra Pradesh at Amaravathi to each pay to each of the petitioners Rs.3,000 towards costs for the manner in which they were denied their right to exercise options in the Guidelines dated November 1, 2018 published by the common High Court at Hyderabad and the subsequent unfortunate rejection by the separate High Courts of the legally valid request of the petitioners for allocation to the newly-constituted High Court of Andhra Pradesh. The bench also required both the High Courts to pay in ratio 1:1 to the petitioners the salary and other benefits they would have earned from 1.1.2019 (the date when the separate High Court of Andhra Pradesh was constituted) till each of the petitioners reached the age of superannuation of 60 years, with interest at 6% from the date on which the said payments were due till the date of actual payment. Facts On 1.11.2018, well before 01.01.2019, when the division of the Common High Court took place, Guidelines were issued by the common High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for both the new State of Telangana and the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh for officers and staff of the said High Court to express their options for consideration to be continued in the service of the High Court at Hyderabad which would be the High Court for the State of Telangana, or for being duly considered for induction and absorption to the service of the High Court for the State of Andhra Pradesh upon its constitution. Para 3 of the said Guidelines defined the word “employees” for the purpose of the said Guidelines as “those who are working in the High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh as on the date of these Guidelines and those who may be appointed thereafter into such service.” Thus, only such of those employees of the High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for both the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh who were working as on 01.11.2018 in the said High Court were declared to be covered by the Guidelines dt.01.11.2018 framed by the High Court of the Judicature at Hyderabad. Justices Rao and Goud were considering the case of the petitioners who had retired after 2.6.2014 ( the ‘appointed day’ for the bifurcation of the composite State of Andhra Pradesh) but prior to 01.11.2018, were thus excluded from giving options under the Guidelines. After 2.6.2014, the date of the bifurcation of the composite State of Andhra Pradesh into the new State of Telangana and the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh, the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh enacted the A.P. Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) (Amendment) Act, 2014 extending the age of superannuation of employees of the State of Andhra Pradesh from 58 years to 60 years. Thereafter, a Government Order was issued by the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh stating that all Government employees belonging to the State Cadre and Multi-zonal Cadre falling in the territories of both the new State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh as on 01.06.2014, i.e one day prior to bifurcation of the composite State of Andhra Pradesh, and who by a general or special order of the Government of India under Sub-Section (1) of Section 77 of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act, 2014, were ordered to serve provisionally in connection with the affairs of the State of Telangana and who had retired on attaining the age of 58 years while serving in the State of Telangana and who are tentatively allotted to the State of Andhra Pradesh, may be re-inducted into service with effect from the date of reporting before the Secretary or Head of the Department, Government of Andhra Pradesh; and that these orders would be subject to final allocation of employees to be issued by the Government of India under Sub-Section (2) of Section 77 of the Act. The State of Andhra Pradesh later issued Government Order dt.29.01.2019 extending the benefit of the enhancement of age of superannuation of the employees of the State Government from 58 years to 60 years to the employees of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh at Amaravathi. Thus, the age of superannuation of the employees of the High Court with effect from 01.01.2019 became 60 years. But, the petitioners were working in the composite High Court at Hyderabad after 2.6.2014, but retired prior to 01.11.2018, the date when the Guidelines were issued by the Common High Court at Hyderabad. On that count, they were not allowed to exercise options and opt to work in the State of Andhra Pradesh. So they had to retire at the age of 58 years, and could not get the benefit of serving, if allotted to the State of Andhra Pradesh, till they attain the age of superannuation of 60 years. Whether the Telangana High Court had jurisdiction to entertain and adjudicate the Writ Petition ? The division bench observed that the Guidelines were admittedly framed by the High Court at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh on 01.11.2018 before 01.01.2019, the date when the separate High Court for the State of Andhra Pradesh was constituted. The cause of action arose at Hyderabad on 1.11.2018 when options were not granted to the employees like petitioners. As on 1.11.2018, the date of framing of the said guidelines, there was no separate High Court for the State of Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, it opined that any challenge to the order/guidelines passed/framed by the said High Court at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh, relating to a cause of action of giving of options/ refusal to give options/allocation of employees, has got to be entertained only by the High Court of Judicature for the State of Telangana at Hyderabad, its successor; and the High Court of Andhra Pradesh has no jurisdiction to consider the same. “The same result could be arrived at if one considers Sub-Clause (2) of Article 226 of the Constitution of India as well”, concluded the bench. The bench opined that the above provision enables the High Court of Judicature for the State of Telangana to exercise jurisdiction in relation to cause of action of refusal to give options to petitioners pursuant to guidelines framed on 01.11.2018 at Hyderabad by the erstwhile High Court at Hyderabad for both the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh since it is the said High Court which currently has territorial jurisdiction over Hyderabad, and it is also the successor High Court after 01.01.2019 to the erstwhile High Court at Hyderabad for both the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh; though the Government, authority (High Court of Andhra Pradesh) or person, is not within its territory. Conclusions of the bench The bench declared that all employees of the composite High Court at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh as on 02.06.2014 form a ‘single class’, and exclusion of persons who retired prior to 01.11.2018 without any valid differentia is violative of Art.14 and the mandate of clause (b) of sub-section (1) of Section 80 of the AP Reorganisation Act to frame guidelines ensuring that there is fair and equitable treatment to all persons affected by the provisions of the Part VIII. The bench further proclaimed that the common High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh erred in law in confining the operation of the Guidelines of 01.11.2018 only to those employees who were working in the High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh as on the date of issuance of the said Guidelines. Besides, the bench expressed the view that the orders of rejection passed by the separate High Courts of Telangana and the High Court of Andhra Pradesh denying options to petitioners to opt for the High Court of Andhra Pradesh from the date it is constituted, are legally unsustainable, and set aside the same. “A Writ of Mandamus is issued directing that petitioners shall be deemed to have been allotted by the Union of India under sub-Section (2) of Section 77 of the Act to the High Court of Andhra Pradesh at Amaravathi after 02.06.2014″, ordered the bench, requiring the Telangana High Court of Telangana to forward the service records of the petitioners to the AP HC. Moreover, the bench ruled that the petitioners shall be notionally deemed to have rendered service in the separate High Court of Andhra Pradesh from 1.1.2019 till they attained the age of 60 years, and the said notional service shall be taken into account for the purpose of calculation of their pensionary benefits, and the High Court of Andhra Pradesh at Amaravathi shall calculate the said benefits and pay the same to the petitioners within eight weeks. Finally, the bench opined that the ‘appointed day’ used in Sub-Section (2) of Section 77 of the Reorganisation Act, as regards the High Court for the State of Andhra Pradesh and for purposes of considering allocation of employees of the erstwhile High Court of the composite State of Andhra Pradesh / common High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for the State of Telangana and the State of Andhra Pradesh cannot be taken as 01.01.2019, the date when the High Court for the State of Andhra Pradesh at Amaravathi was constituted by the President of India and started functioning.”We declare that there can only be one ‘appointed day’ i.e., 02.06.2014 as defined in Section 2(a) of the Act; and 01.01.2019 cannot be treated as an ‘appointed day’ in relation to allocation of employees of the common High Court at Hyderabad to the High Court of Andhra Pradesh and the High Court of Telangana”, held the bench.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story read more
