ISA investors! 2 dividend stocks I think are perfect for the 2020s The roaring growth of online shopping has been one of the big stories of the 2010s. It’s a trend that has helped Tritax Big Box REIT (LSE: BBOX) soar 47% in value since its IPO in December 2013, and all evidence on consumer spending habits suggest the 2020s will be a decade of further progress.Data just released by Kantar Worldpanel certainly underlines the bullish outlook for the FTSE 250 firm, a provider of so-called big box warehouses used for distribution and warehousing purposes. The researcher said that sales of fast-moving consumer goods (FCMG) via the Internet leapt 5.9% in 2019. By comparison, total FCMG sales from offline channels rose a more modest 2.4%.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…Tritax Big Box has raised its annual dividend each year since it came onto the London stock market, and, given an expected 4% earnings rise in 2020, City analysts expect another annual hike. The business carries a jumbo 4.8% yield, one which trounces the UK mid-cap average of just above 3%.Print big returnsI believe 4Imprint Group (LSE: FOUR) is another top share to load up on for the 2020s.Like Tritax Big Box, the supplier of promotional goodies (we’re talking mugs, pens, t-shirts, etc.) also trades on a premium rating. In fact, its forward price-to-earnings ratio of 27 times is almost twice as high as the British blue-chip average of 14.5 times and surpasses Tritax Big Box’s reading of 21.2 times too.But I believe 4Imprint Group is worth every penny. City analysts forecast another double-digit-percentage increase in annual earnings in 2020, this time by 12%, and steps like bolstering brand investment and expanding its distribution assets bodes well for beyond.Share price up 2,800% since 2010!It’s important to point out that right now 4Imprint doesn’t offer up the biggest yields, however. In fact for 2020 the reading sits at 2.3%, a full percentage point behind the average for the country’s mid-caps.That said, the impressive rate at which it’s hiked earnings over the past half a decade, including the 25% year-on-year rise last time out in 2018, suggests that it’s a great pick for the next 10 years. Forget about the small dividend cheques in the near term, I say, and think of the abundant income flows you could have banked by 2030.The number crunchers certainly believe there’s plenty for income chasers to cheer about. They are expecting the 53.15p per share ordinary dividend of last year to leap to 60.5p in 2019, and then again to 80.5p in 2020. And what’s more, so strong is cash generation at 4Imprint that more chubby special dividends (like last year’s 43.17p supplementary reward) could be coming down the line, something that the firm’s low yield doesn’t take into account.4Imprint’s share price has ballooned 2,820% during the 2010s, and the prospect of more meaty gains in the coming years makes it a top dividend stock to watch today, in my opinion. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

You are the working class

first_imgThe ruling class has offered up a big lie, and we have swallowed it whole. We have been told that we are not “working class,” that we are not workers at all. Instead, we are part of a nebulous “middle class” — college educated, working toward upward mobility, go-getters. We have a side hustle, but we’re not working class. To be working class is to be poor, rural, uneducated and struggling, to be a victim of the predations of the Wall Street vampire aristocracy. Rather than a collective class — a whole, close-knit society — we are a collection of individuals pursuing our own rational self-interests. And therein lies the genius of the big lie. If we are not a class, then we have no collective class interest. Without that, we cannot engage in class struggle against those who — every day — mine the wealth of our communities to swell their overflowing bank accounts. The big lie is meant to mask the economic reality of our society; there are those who own and those who do not — the capitalists and the workers. It does not matter where you work or even how much you make. If you do not own the fast food restaurant where you serve customers or the hospital where you treat patients, you are a worker. Whether you drive someone else’s tractor trailer or write someone else’s software, you are part of the working class. Karl Marx defined these — the restaurants, hospitals, shipping equipment, intellectual property, factories, oil rigs, etc. — as the “means of production.” The working class is made up of those who work every day to produce society’s wealth, but do not own the means of production.Myth of the middle classAnd so we can see the lie of the “middle-class” category. High school teachers who live on food stamps consider themselves middle class. They see their college degree as a marker that sets them apart from the person who delivers food. But the reality is they are united in class interests as workers, and if the bonds of solidarity are properly built, they should be united in class struggle. The concept of a middle class provides a psychological security blanket. In an era of increasing economic instability, workers in every field know how easily they may fall onto hard times after being laid off or suffering an unexpected medical expense. There’s very little that one can do to protect themselves from the ravages of the modern capitalist economy. But thinking of yourself as middle class — as separate and distinct from those who are living paycheck-to-paycheck — allows you to feel protected. The painful irony of this is that many people who live paycheck-to-paycheck consider themselves middle class. The capitalist class loves this, as they love all divisions between workers.The truth is that the false split between the middle class on one side, and the working class and poor on the other, is based more on the type of work one does than on how much a person makes. And yet workers with desk jobs or jobs that require an expensive education are becoming more and more exploited. Earlier this year The Verge reported on the dismal experience at Facebook contracting firms. These firms hire workers for low hourly rates with virtually no benefits. These tech workers — whose job is to filter out explicit content, particularly racist and violent content — suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, drug use and suicidal ideation after being subjected to hours of the most horrible videos on the internet. They’re used until they’re used up and then tossed away. (tinyurl.com/y3ou2sk6)At Amazon shipping facilities, an employee’s every movement is tracked and timed by their package-scanning guns. When they need to use the bathroom, their scanner tells them which facility is closest.  If they use one that is farther away, they’ll have to explain their “inefficiency” to a manager. These kinds of daily humiliations break down workers, and turnover is incredibly high. But none of that matters to the capitalists because profits keep going up. What advantage is there in working for the most cutting-edge companies if those companies only come up with ever more sophisticated means of treating you like dirt?The logic behind this capitalist propaganda — the divisions between the high-tech and low-tech worker, the more and less educated — is to destroy working-class solidarity. No matter what prestige you believe your line of work has or does not have, if you are not part of the ownership class, you have more in common with literally any other worker than you do with the average hedge fund manager.We must challenge the big lie and build working-class solidarity. We must think of ourselves and refer to ourselves as working class. We must build connections between isolated workers in every industry so that we can harness our collective power. In doing so, we can turn back the tide of capitalist exploitation once and for all. Workers of the world unite!

No suspect in Pakistani reporter’s week-old murder

first_imgFour days after Khan’s murder, another journalist, Ali Sher Rajpar, was fatally shot five times at close range outside the gate of the press club he presided in the town of Padidan, in the southeastern province of Punjab. “His last report [on 20 April] was about the law and order situation in Parowa, where political leaders have allegedly been influencing police investigations into criminal gangs,” Gangohi said. A fellow Parowa-based journalist confirmed that Khan was a “pugnacious reporter.” Located between the border with Punjab province to the east, the former “Tribal Areas” where the Taliban operate to the northwest, and the unstable province of Balochistan to the south, the district of Dera Ismail Khan where Khan worked embodies the many dangers to which Pakistani journalists are exposed. The police investigation has made absolutely no progress and no suspect had been identified in the week since Malik Amanullah Khan, a reporter for the online daily Meezan-e-Adl and president of the press club in the town of Parowa, in Dera Ismail Khan district, was shot four times on 30 April by two gunmen on a motorcycle. Organisation News PakistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Armed conflictsCorruptionOrganized crimeViolence Malik Amanullah Khan (right) was known for his pugnacious reporting for the Urdu-language newspaper Meezan-e-Adl (photo: Dawn – Meezan-e-Adl). Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the Pakistani authorities to shed all possible light on the murder of Malik Khan, a journalist known for covering local social and political issues in an outspoken manner, who was gunned down last week in the northwestern province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. When reached by RSF, Meezan-e-Adl editor Muhammad Sohail Gangohi described Khan as an “extremely brave” reporter who was never afraid to expose social or political problems in the region he covered. “Malik Khan’s profile and the nature of his published stories constitute clear grounds for thinking that he was targeted because of his investigative reporting,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. to go further News PakistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Armed conflictsCorruptionOrganized crimeViolence Follow the news on Pakistan Receive email alerts May 7, 2019 No suspect in Pakistani reporter’s week-old murdercenter_img Speaking on condition of anonymity, a journalist who recently fled Parowa told RSF: “I moved out of the area because I didn’t feel safe.

A Tunis appeal court began hearing an appeal against an order to block porn sites

first_img Help by sharing this information RSF_en Organisation Newscenter_img A Tunis appeal court began hearing an appeal against an order, issued by a lower court on 26 May, requiring the Tunisian Internet Agency (ATI) to block porn sites on the grounds that they posed a threat to minors and Muslim values. The order was the result of a legal initiative by a group of lawyers. An initial attempt by the agency to block the order was rejected by another court on 13 June. The decision that the appeal court takes will be crucial for the future of the Tunisian Internet.Pending the outcome of the appeal, ATI undertook to comply with the order while reiterating “its determination, as an Internet exchange point, to act in a transparent and neutral manner as regards all the websites to be filtered by means of its equipment.” The agency provided information about the measures it took to comply with the order and warned the public that the reactivation of filtering could lead to deterioration in the quality of service, above all because of network maintenance problems.ATI began to comply with the order by stages on 15 June, introducing filtering in a number of government agencies and ministries, residences for young people and Internet cafés, but so far not for domestic users. The Internet company McAfee’s Smartfilter was being used for the filtering. The agency gave out an email address ([email protected]) to which suspected filtering errors could be reported, but said it could not take responsibility for any errors.

WikiLeaks reveals talks background

first_img RSF_en February 8, 2011 – Updated on January 25, 2016 WikiLeaks reveals talks background Help by sharing this information Newscenter_img Organisation Cables: 06TOKYO356706TOKYO402506TOKYO5805 07MEXICO022907ROME29007LISBON228808ROME133709STOCKHOLM736Details of the complicated secret negotiations over the anti-counterfeiting trade agreement (ACTA) have emerged from the diplomatic cables revealed by WikiLeaks and posted on the Internet.The United States, which put forward the proposals, suggested in June 2006 to foreign ministers and the Japanese trade minister an agreement on intellectual property rights (IPR) which “would aim to set a ‘gold standard’ for IPR enforcement among a small number of like-minded countries, and which other countries might aspire to join.”The US commerce department negotiator, Stanford McCay, said in a 2006 cable that the accord needed to be “a freestanding agreement, not related to any international grouping such as the G-8 or Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which might make it more difficult to construct a high-standards agreement.” The “small number of like-minded countries” should, in the US view, include in particular Australia, Singapore, South Korea, New Zealand, Morocco, Jordan, the European countries, Mexico and Canada. The Americans foresaw ACTA establishing the norms according to which other, non-signatory countries should conform to continue to have commercial relations with the signatory states. Fabrizio Mazza, head of the Italian intellectual property office at the Italian foreign ministry, warned in 2007 that it would be hard to get an agreement as envisaged. “Mazza is confused and concerned because he thinks it will be much more difficult to reach an agreement by involving the EU, and he understood the USG (US government) intent was to deal directly and preferably with only member states, instead of the Commission.” However Washington had said it wanted to deal with the commission in view of its “desire to avoid getting in the middle of a debate on EU member-state competencies while noting that the topic was a complex one involving not only trade, but also intellectual property rights, customs, law enforcement, and judicial issues.”Italy, with the United Kingdom and Sweden, criticized the confidential nature of the treaty, which would prevent member states entering into the necessary discussions with stakeholders and parliaments.They were also worried about the influence of US businesses and pressure groups on the treaty negotiations. (See article)The WikiLeaks cables also show that although Japan had some enthusiasm for the treaty, it had expressed some objections, saying it would prefer a partnership with international organizations.Hisamitsu Arai, secretary general at the intellectual properly and strategy office, is quoted as saying “that the intent of the agreement is to address the IPR problems of third-nations such as China, Russia, and Brazil, not to negotiate the different interests of like-minded countries.” last_img read more

While setting aside an order for removal of the Petitioner from the post of Chairperson of Child Welfare Committee for allegedly participating in the campaign of election in favour of BJP candidate, a Single Bench of Justice Goutam Bhaduri held, “even if such allegations are read in terms of sub-section (7) of Section 27 of the Act, it cannot be enveloped to lead an inference that the campaign in favour of certain candidates would be within the ambit of guilty of misuse of power under the Act, 2015.” Section 27 of the JJ Act contemplates removal of a member of the Child Welfare Committee on the following grounds: (i) He has been found guilty of misuse of power vested under this Act; (ii) He has been convicted of an offence involving moral turpitude and such conviction has not been reversed or he has not been granted full pardon in respect of such offence; (iii) He fails to attend the proceedings of the Committee consecutively for three months without any valid reason or he fails to attend less than three fourth of the sittings in a year (iv) Becomes ineligible under sub-section (4) during his term as a member.

It was further contended that the order removing her was passed without giving any further opportunity of hearing.

Cuomo reverses course, says indoor dining will return to NYC soon

first_imgPhoto Illustration of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (Getty; iStock/Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)Bon appetit! Indoor dining could be back in New York City as soon as next week.In an apparent change of heart, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today that he would unveil a plan to reinstate indoor dining by the end of this week, according to Eater. Earlier this week, the governor said that loosening Covid restrictions for restaurants was off the table.“I fully understand how difficult it is for restaurants and for all the people working there,” said Cuomo during the press conference Wednesday. “Because of the density, we are hyper cautious about the situation in New York City.”Read moreOutdoor dining to return in LA County this weekLawsuits pile up against Cuomo’s indoor dining ban70 restaurants sue Cuomo over “Kafkaesque nightmare” of regulations Cuomo said that he has been consulting with health officials, Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials, and restaurant owners and advocates in preparation for the announcement. As of Jan. 27, the seven-day average positivity rate in the city was 5.4 percent. That’s in contrast to regions where indoor dining is still allowed, such as Long Island, where the positivity rate is 6.8 percent.If restaurants were to reopen for indoor dining, they would do so at 25 percent capacity.“We’re happy that Governor Cuomo heard the voice of New York City’s decimated restaurant industry and we look forward to working towards a plan that hopefully reopens indoor dining soon,” Andrew Rigie, executive director of the NYC Hospitality Alliance said in a statement.Cuomo has been hit with various lawsuits related to the issue. Two lawsuits argued that the ban is unconstitutional, while a separate class-action suit with 70 restaurants named as plaintiffs said that ever-changing dining restrictions violate their civil rights.Other cities have made similar announcements in the past week. In California, a state-wide stay-at-home order was lifted Monday, clearing the way for outdoor dining to resume in LA. Chicago has also allowed indoor dining to resume at 25 percent capacity as of this week.[Eater] — Sasha JonesContact Sasha Jones TagsAndrew CuomoNYC RestaurantsRetail Email Address* Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message* Full Name*last_img read more
