Today, I’d like to take a closer look at the cohort known as ‘Millennials’. If you were born between 1980 and 1996 (i.e., ages 24 to 40 in 2020), you are considered part of the Millennial generation, also referred to as ‘Gen Y’. Let’s take see how retirement years may shape up for your generation.Planning for retirement amid the market crash It is hard to emotionally distance oneself from the alarming headlines about the Covid-19 outbreak as well as the market crash. We all have quite a lot to worry about right now. 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…So you may find that when trying to balance various life priorities, saving for retirement may easily get pushed to the back burner.However, deep down many of us know that ‘this too shall pass’ and life will return to ‘normal‘ in some weeks.The full basic state pension currently stands at £168.60 per week. Do you believe you can live on that amount for the rest of your life after retirement?Younger savers will increasingly have to rely on their own investments to supplement their state pensions. Start planning sooner than laterIt is important to form a realistic plan for paying for retirement. To start, I’d encourage contributing to your workplace pension scheme if you have one.Every UK resident should also learn more about the different types of ISAs available to them, with an emphasis on Stocks and Shares ISAs. As you may already know, the deadline for individuals to contribute to the current tax year’s ISA is 5 April. My Motley Fool colleagues regularly cover FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares and funds that you could consider adding to a diversified retirement portfolio. They point out that the despite various downturns and even crashes, over the long run, stock markets in the UK return about 7% to 9% annually, on average.Research also shows that investors who purchase dividend-growth stocks and reinvest the dividends to buy more shares are likely to see considerable growth in their savings.Which dividend stocks could you buy from the FTSE 100? At present, tobacco firm British American Tobacco offers a yield of about 8.8%. If you are looking at financial firms, current dividends for Legal & General Group and Lloyds Bank stand at 12.6% and 11.0%. At the lower end, pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca and Tesco, UK’s largest supermarket chain, pay 3.6% and 3.2% in dividend yield. And their share prices are a lot cheaper than they were at the start of the year.Time is on your sideHere’s an example of the power of time on your investments:Let’s assume that you’re now 35 years old with £20,000 in savings and that you plan to retire at age 65.Despite the market crash, you now decide to invest that £20,000 in a fund and make an additional £2,400 in contributions annually at the start of the year. You’ve 30 years to invest. The annual return is 8%, compounded once a year. At the end of 30 years, the total amount saved becomes £494,883.Saving £2,400 a year would mean being able to put aside £200 a month or about £7 a day. Might you just be wondering if you should skip that next impulse purchase? Millennials!

Protesters say ‘No’ to genocidal rapist Christopher Columbus

first_imgProtesters at Marshall University denounce Columbus, Oct. 14.Huntington, W.Va. — An anti-“Columbus Day” demonstration took place on the campus of Marshall University in Huntington, W.Va., on Oct. 14.  The event was attended by members of a campus group called “Students for Appalachian Socialism” as well as from Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST). The protesters handed out flyers reading “Columbus Day or Indigenous People’s Day? You Decide” as well as informative literature on the genocide carried out by the violent racist Christopher Columbus and the European colonialist forces that followed, as well as their paving the way for the slave trade.One protest sign included a quote by Columbus where he discussed his plans to kidnap and sell girls as young as 9 and 10 into the sex trade: “A hundred castellanoes (a Spanish coin) are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and … there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten (years old) are now in demand.”Columbus was known to engage in and promote rape of the Indigenous Taíno people he encountered upon landing on the island of Hispaniola. The life of slave labor and rape became so unbearable that the Taíno resorted to mass suicide. Pedro de Córdoba wrote to King Ferdinand in 1517: “As a result of the sufferings and hard labor they endured, the Indians choose and have chosen suicide. Occasionally a hundred have committed mass suicide. The women, exhausted by labor, have shunned conception and childbirth. Many, when pregnant, have taken something to abort and have aborted. Others after delivery have killed their children with their own hands, so as not to leave them in such oppressive slavery.” (“Lies My Teacher Told Me,” by James W. Loewen, p. 54)‘A whole history people don’t know’The protest was organized by Marshall University political science major Genenahgehneh “Autumn” Lee who is of the Haudenosaunee people and a member of the Six Nations Reserve in Ontario, Canada. Asked about her motivation for the demonstration, Lee told Workers World: “I feel it’s important for people to know the history — the true history — of the U.S., and Columbus Day is just one of the many things that is corrupt in this country. There are other things like the boarding schools that started in the 1800s and went through the 1900s and didn’t stop in Canada and the U.S. until the 1970s and 1980s. There is just a whole history that people don’t know. They only know what they are taught by the conquerors.”The boarding schools Lee referred to were originally built by Christian missionaries for the indoctrination of Native children into Eurocentric culture. The children were often required to adopt a Western haircut and were forbidden to speak their Indigenous language or even use their given name.In 1989, George H.W. Bush stated on behalf of his class about this despicable historical figure, “Christopher Columbus not only opened the door to a New World, but also set an example for us all by showing what monumental feats can be accomplished through perseverance and faith.”Many people wonder, especially after learning the facts,why Columbus Day is still a celebrated federal holiday in the United States. But it is really no surprise that the leading imperialist state in the world commemorates such a figure. After all, Columbus began the colonization of an entire land as well as the slave trade, both of which laid the foundation for the exploitative power of the U.S. capitalist class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

India gives RIM more time to provide access to BlackBerry services.

But India is taking advantage of the pressure being put on RIM by other countries to blackmail the company itself.The Indian authorities are using the fact that Islamist militants employed mobile phones and satellite phones to carry out the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai that killed 166 people. This kind of technology can be put to harmful use, the authorities argue.The Financial Times speculated today that the Indian authorities could also demand access to other encrypted networks such as Google and Skype.RIM tried to reassure users in a statement yesterday, saying it was doing its best to cooperate with governments and satisfy national security concerns while protecting the rights of consumers and corporate clients. It reaffirmed its intention not to reach any specific agreements with individual governments.Saudi Arabia is meanwhile still allowing BlackBerry’s instant messaging service to operate. The Saudi authorities had decided to suspend it on 6 August, but the blocking lasted only a few hours. Talks aimed at finding a compromise are apparently continuing.RIM is nonetheless already cooperating with certain countries.

Journalist arrested and a weekly suspended

first_img June 9, 2021 Find out more April 29, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist arrested and a weekly suspended Iran’s press surveillance commission yesterday ordered the conditional closure of reformist daily Hambasteghi, following the arrest earlier in April of journalist Masud Rafai Taleghani, of the daily Farhangh Ashati, and suspension a week later of the weekly Paygam Borujerd, on a complaint from the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Orientation.“Censorship, unfair arrests, and unjust convictions are the everyday lot of the Iranian daily press,” said Reporters Without Borders, adding, “The authorities must put an end to such practices”.“Masud Rafai Taleghani’s name is now added to the list of journalists imprisoned in Iran,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. Ten are already in jail, making Iran the Middle East’s biggest prison for journalists.Intelligence ministry agents raided Rafai Taleghani’s Tehran home on 13 April. They searched his home, seized his computer and arrested and took him to a secret location. No reasons for his arrest have been made public.In another case, on 19 April, the weekly Paygam Borujerd was suspended on the order of the general revolutionary court of the city of Borujerd, Lorestan province in south-western Iran, following a complaint form the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Orientation. It related to the publication of an article by the son of a leading religious figure viewed as “offensive and insulting towards the people”.The daily, Hambasteghi, which has lost its publication director is now in danger of losing its licence to publish. In an interview with the news agency Farsnews, an official of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Orientation, Mohammad Parvizi, said that under Article 14 of the press code, the paper had three months to recruit a new manager. If it had not done so within that period, the commission would be able to withdraw its licence and force its closure.“The press surveillance commission and its supervisory authority, the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Orientation regularly usurp the role of the courts,” Reporters Without Borders said.

Sinn Féin alternative budget would give Limerick families a break

first_img Previous articleLimerick Post Show | 4th October 2019Next articleNews Roundup | October 5, 2019 Alan Jacques Email Print Twitter Sinn Fein TD Maurice Quinlivan.Pic. Emma Jervis/ Press 22SINN Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan believes the solutions proposed in his party’s alternative budget would give Limerick’s workers and families a “break”.Deputy Quinlivan, who chaired the launch of his party’s Alternative Budget on Tuesday, insists that rent is one of the key causes of stress and insecurity among families and working people in Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Despite rental costs being a big problem for years now, the government has failed to take any real action. They have made a political choice to prioritise landlords over tenants,” he told the Limerick Post.“There are solutions to the rental crisis. Our Alternative Budget would set aside €279 million for a refundable tax credit, given to all renters, which would be equal to one month’s rent.”According to the Limerick politician, his party would also introduce an emergency rent freeze, which would be imposed on all existing and new tenancies for three years, ensuring renters won’t be squeezed any further.“We recognise these are only temporary measures, needed to stabilise the markets and people’s finances, and so we have substantial plans for house building which would address the severe shortage of housing across the State. We show how 17,216 social and affordable homes, which is 8,700 more than the government’s plan, could be built in 2020, at a cost of €1.072 billion,” he claimed.Deputy Quinlivan also sees the health service as another critical issue in Limerick, and is proposing new solutions that would make a real difference.“We would introduce two free GP visits for everyone without a GP or medical card, a measure that would cost €268.8 million next year. Next year we would also recruit an extra 500 nurses and midwives, provide medical cards for cancer patients, and introduce universal access to free counselling on a GP referral basis.“The overcrowding crisis is to the fore in Limerick, and we are proposing to open an additional 500 beds, including the associated doctors and health professionals, at a cost of €160.2 million next year.“We would commence a transformational five-year programme of childcare reform that ensures childcare workers are properly paid and childcare fees are slashed by two thirds for parents. This would cost €28 million in 2020 rising to a full year investment of €85 million going forward.”The obvious next question, he pointed out, is how Sinn Féin would fund the extra measures.“Our revenue-raising measures are detailed in our Alternative Budget too.“If you’re earning less than €140,000 we would not touch your income tax rates, but if you as an individual are earning more than that, we would ask you to contribute a little more. Our Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty, would also target the tax loopholes exploited by corporations and the wealth of millionaires.“We would tax intangible assets on-shored by multinationals, raising €722 million, we would introduce a five per cent high-income levy on individual incomes above €140,000, bringing in €345 million for the Exchequer, and we would introduce a wealth tax for the wealthiest 0.25 per cent in the State, at a rate of one per cent on the portion of wealth held over €1 million, meaning an additional €89 million for investment in public services.“Our proposals are the type of bold and decisive solutions needed to make a real difference, and these are only a sample of our suggestions, which cover every government department and sector.“Our Alternative Budget shows how the State’s income can be spent in a different, fairer, way, and highlights that millionaires can, and should pay more, towards our public services. Sinn Féin’s Alternative Budget demonstrations different choices can be made, and our budget would give workers and families a break, something that is well overdue,” he concluded.
