Passive income is money one gets without having to earn it through work. For example, if one rents out a field to a local farmer or earns interest on a savings account, it’s a form of passive income. Finding passive income streams which are simple to understand and don’t require much time or money can be a challenge. But by putting aside just £10 a week, I think it’s possible to start building solid passive income streams.Here are two passive income streams I’d consider.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…High-yield shares as passive income streams£10 a week might not sound like a lot but it’s just over £500 annually. That would be enough to get started investing in shares. I’d drip feed the weekly payment in until I felt I had enough to make my first investment.I’d consider looking for shares with a high yield. That means they payout a relatively high percentage of their cost price each year to shareholders, as dividends. Right now, the FTSE 100 index of leading shares yields around 3%. So £10 a week should throw off about £15 a year in dividends. But some shares have a much higher yield. For example, Imperial Brands yields over 9%. So investing at the current price, I’d expect £520 to generate passive income of around £46 per year in future.That isn’t guaranteed, though. Dividends can be cut and indeed Imperial cut its dividend last year. Its main business is cigarettes. Smoking is declining in many markets. On the positive side, if dividends do continue, I wouldn’t just get passive income next year. It should continue for as long as I held the shares, based on the dividend payouts. So putting in £10 a week now could still be earning me passive income far into the future.Growth potentialAlternatively, I could pick shares that offered some income but also growth potential. In theory, all shares have growth potential – Unilever could continue to grow profits as more consumers buy branded products. Even Imperial could grow, for example by raising prices or expanding into new markets.But some shares already paying out income have much clearer pathways to growth. If I was willing to accept a lower yield I might also get some future growth as well. For example, B&M European Value Retail had paid 24.3p in dividends – including special dividends – this year and still hasn’t declared its final dividend. That means the yield is at least 4.5% but will probably be higher. Even if 4.5% is the final yield, on £10 a week that would amount to almost £24 of passive income a year. That depends on the dividends being maintained, though, and special dividends in particular tend to vary each year.But B&M also continues to grow its business fast. It’s one of my favourite ideas for passive income streams. But it could also produce some share price gains.B&M has proven its ability to thrive in a tough retail landscape. But with retailing facing challenges from quiet high streets to online shopping, B&M’s recent success might not continue. Its model could be copied by competitors, as happened with many dollar stores in the US. So I’d diversify my £10 weekly investment across multiple shares to help reduce my exposure to any one company’s fortunes.last_img read more

Are face masks really where you want to stand your ground?

If it were up to me, if my actions did not affect anyone, I wouldn’t wear a mask.I would also drive my car as fast as I wanted, and park it anywhere I pleased. I would talk in theatres, play my music louder, grill steaks from my apartment’s second-story patio, and let the smoke go where it may.But because I live in a society where my actions could adversely affect others, I follow the rules and laws. I am considerate of others. I do unto others as I would want them to do to me.I don’t like face masks, but I will wear one at the appropriate times and places. Why? Because it is a small enough annoyance to manage when you consider we are dealing with a virus that can stay in the air for up to three hours, has no known cure, has infected over 1.25 million Americans and killed over 75,000.I know, deep down, I will never get COVID-19. I have an awesome immune system, and I rarely get a cold or miss a day of work. I calculate my odds at less than 1% of catching the coronavirus.But, if I were wrong, and the 100:1 shot came in… if my awesome immune system failed me, and I caught the coronavirus and transmitted it to someone in our community that had a lesser immune system than me and died, I couldn’t live with myself.It is for that primary reason we wear a face mask… to protect each other, not ourselves.There is a time when the individualist spirit in all of us goes out into the world to stake our claim, work hard, and make our dreams come true. It’s us against everyone. At certain times, that is the American way.However, fighting COVID-19 isn’t one of those times.In times of pandemic, we stand together as a neighborhood, community, city, state, or nation, and persevere together.There has been a lot of debate about face masks on popular social media sites in Apopka, Orange County, and throughout the country. Residents, probably frustrated from weeks of stay at home orders, are expressing their views about more limitations set in response to the coronavirus. They have thrown around phrases like socialism, civil rights violations, oppression, and overreaching elected officials in describing face masks.I certainly understand the desire to push back on government restrictions, but perhaps your protests are the overreach in this instance. Is it possible that the minor and temporary restrictions imposed to improve public safety are just that?Minor.Temporary.Improve public safety.However, if you think wearing a mask is akin to socialism or communism, I would refer you to oppressive regimes like China – where residents lived under quarantine for months under the watchful eye of the government. I would also refer you to Russia, where three frontline health care workers mysteriously fell out of hospital windows over the past two weeks.If you sincerely believe that your civil rights are being trampled upon because you have to wear a mask during a public health crisis, I would refer you to slavery, women’s suffrage, worker’s conditions at the turn of the century, World War II restrictions on American citizens, the holocaust, Jim Crow laws, and countless other atrocities where people actually suffered.Is wearing a face mask truly where you want to stand your ground?Is this your Patrick Henry moment?Is this the place where you cross the Rubicon?Is this the bus seat you will not give up?Is this the lunch counter you refuse to leave?And what about these elected officials imposing the face mask mandate on Orange County residents just as we were heading into a phase one re-opening of the state?The coronavirus is perhaps the most significant challenge many leaders will face in their careers. It is fair to assess their performances and vote accordingly. Judge all of them – from the president to senators, congress, legislature, governor, county chair, county commissioners, mayors, and city commissioners in this time of crisis. However, also understand the difference between judging their job performance and being political during an emergency.Voters can surely bring a range of ideologies with them to the ballot box. And how to balance the economy with public safety during a crisis should be one of them. This coronavirus has been a stress test for our leaders, and in many ways, shows their priorities in stark terms. Surely some approaches deserve spirited debate.When should we reopen the economy, and how?Should restaurants be allowed to open their indoor dining areas?How many customers should be allowed in a retail store?Which businesses should be allowed to open?Can we go to the beach?When should we reopen schools?After eight weeks in lockdown, it is a blessing to go back into the world with just a little more flexibility than we had. We are still not out of the woods, but it appears things are better than they were – enough to start phase one of re-opening Orange County and Florida.It seems a small enough price to wear a face mask during this period. There is little downside, and a great deal of potential upside – primarily the safety of our community.A friend of mine emailed a quote to me from the French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, who lived in Paris during the Nazi occupation, one of the worst times and places in history. His words are appropriate for this time in history as well:“Look back, look forth, look close, there may be more prosperous times, more intelligent times, more spiritual times, more magical times, and more happy times, but this one, this small moment in the history of the universe, this is ours. And let’s do everything with it. Everything.”These may well be the worst of times and the worst of conditions we will ever experience in our lives, but let’s experience them, let’s learn from them, and let’s grow as a community and a nation in this time of crisis. Let’s come out on the other side of this pandemic as better people.But most of all, let’s not unravel and fight over petty annoyances. Not now.And for those of you poised to run these incumbents out of office, fear not. November is right around the corner. There’s plenty of time to swing that political hammer with abandon.In the meantime, let’s summon our better angels and survive COVID-19 with dignity, grace, charity, and goodwill for all.We’re going to win this thing. It’s only a matter of time.last_img read more

The extension to a lakeside residential house, comprising three storeys in all, plays on the shape of the landscape and nestles into the steep slope that runs from south to north down to the lake. Facing the lake, it creates 3 all-glass residential storeys with the kitchen enthroned at their centre, like the command bridge of a ship. The projections and recesses lend the extension a feeling of lightness, creating roofed outside areas and also making each of the 3 storeys stand out visually. The kitchen faces east, with its distinctive “eye”, receiving the morning sun. The facade is covered with opaque white glass panels, contrasting in places with high-gloss black glass elements.

Although facades which face northwards to the lake may appear unfavourable at first glance, their advantages become obvious in summer. There’s no need to install any shades and they never get over-heated. In this context, north-facing walls are ideal when you have all-glass facades. The lake becomes the main protagonist.

Text donations have proved a particular popular method of giving.Chief Executive of the Disasters Emergency Committee Brendan Gormley said: “The UK public have been remarkably generous, despite many having to tighten their belts here in the UK. We are determined, with the public’s support, to prevent this crisis from spiralling out of control. I would urge people to keep giving, to help us save more lives.”According to ActionAid, almost £100,000 was donated by text in one hour on Friday evening after the appeal was launched, including £9,295 in one minute. The public can donate £5 via their phone bill by texting CRISIS to 70000. These text donations represented 5% of total donations when the total stood at £8 million. ActionAid commented: “This compares to just 0.1 per cent of donations by text to the Pakistan Floods Appeal”.Gormley commented on the success of giving by text, saying: “We have significantly increased our promotion of ‘text to give’ and it’s now clear that this has allowed us to reach a whole new generation of supporters.“The text to give response has been astonishing and does not seem to have diminished giving by other means. However people give, it’s heartening to see such overwhelming generosity.”The DEC East Africa Appeal has been presented on the TV and radio by actor Jason Isaacs, actor and comedian Lenny Henry, broadcaster and journalist Kate Adie, and actress Fay Ripley.www.dec.org.ukPhoto: © 2011 CARE/Kate Holt Howard Lake | 11 July 2011 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

(Erica Hong/Courier)Lancer pitcher, Eddie Gutierrez throws to infielder, Joe Quire trying to stop Rio Hondo’s, Kory Brown from stealing on Saturday, February 14, 2015 at Brookside Park’s Jackie Robinson Memorial Field. The Lancers lost to Rio Hondo College 9-4. (Erica Hong/Courier)After three scoreless innings to begin the game, Rio Hondo got on the board first with four consecutive two-out singles in the top half of the forth to give them a 2-0 advantage. PCC answered back with a run in their half of the inning. Freshman Joe Quire crushed a double to right-center to lead things off, and sophomore designated hitter John Sevilla moved him to third with a sacrifice bunt before freshman outfielder Anthony Rabito pushed him across with a groundout to shortstop.Freshman starting pitcher Isaac Holguin walked the leadoff hitter to begin the fifth inning, at which point McGee had seen enough. He pulled the right hander after just 4+ innings of work, and roughly 55 pitches.“I let the inning they scored get to me,” said Holguin. “I need to be better at that.”Freshman reliever Nick Esparza allowed two runs before retiring the side, giving Rio Hondo a 4-1 lead.PCC was retired in order in the bottom of the inning.In the top of the sixth, sophomore centerfielder PJ DeZotell made a dazzling catch, diving head first on a line drive to shallow center. Esparza made the next out himself with a nice catch of his own, hauling in a screaming comebacker. He then struck the next batter out looking.The Lancers kept the momentum going with back to back singles in the bottom of the sixth. Quire was then hit by a pitch to load the bases. Sevilla stepped up and punched a high fastball into the right center field gap, scoring two and cutting the Roadrunner lead to just one.“I was looking for a pitch that I could drive,” said Sevilla. “At least score one with a fly ball.”Rabito scored Sevilla on a groundout to short, knotting things up at four runs apiece.However, the Lancers were unable to maintain focus. Esparza hit the first two batters he faced in the top of the seventh. After a sacrifice bunt moved the runners over, McGee brought in freshman reliever Brennan Martinez. Martinez gave up a two-run single, and was taken out for another freshman reliever, Eddie Gutierrez. Gutierrez was able to retire the side, but the damage was done. Rio Hondo would end up holding onto the lead, and tacking on a couple more runs to wrap up the 9-4 final.PCC looks to get back on track on track against LA Valley College on Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. The game will be played at the University of La Verne.
