See all posts by Peter Stephens “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Finding the best dividend-paying UK shares to buy now to obtain a worthwhile passive income can be a difficult task. After all, share prices have made gains since their March lows, yet the economic outlook is uncertain.As such, buying high-quality businesses with generous dividend yields that can grow in the long run could be crucial in obtaining a high income return.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…With that in mind, here are four FTSE 100 stocks that appear to fit the bill. They could provide a relatively high income in 2021, as well as scope for above-inflation growth in the coming years.High-yielding UK sharesBritish American Tobacco and GlaxoSmithKline are among the highest-yielding UK shares at the present time. They offer generous passive incomes compared to the FTSE 100’s 3.7% yield. BAT has a yield of 7.3%, while GSK’s dividends amount to 5.7% of its share price.BAT recently released an encouraging investor update. It showed the company is making progress in growing its non-combustible product categories, such as e-cigarettes. It’s on track to meet its long-term goal of generating £5bn in revenue from non-combustibles.In the meantime, its plans to become more agile may allow it to deliver strong dividend growth. Its capacity to raise cigarette prices may also produce a growing dividend in the coming years.GSK also has an improving long-term future. As well as a higher yield than other dividend-paying UK shares, its passive income prospects could gather pace as its plans to split into two separate companies are realised.This may increase its efficiency and strengthen its financial position relative to healthcare sector peers. In the shorter term, GSK’s defensive characteristics may mean that it has a solid income outlook relative to other FTSE 100 shares.Dividend growth opportunities for a rising passive incomeSSE and Unilever offer impressive dividend growth prospects relative to other UK shares. And that could mean they offer attractive passive incomes in the long run. For example, SSE has a dividend growth plan that covers the next few years.It expects to raise dividends by at least as much as inflation in that time. Should a loose monetary policy cause a rapidly-rising price level, this could be a major benefit to income investors. Meanwhile, its 5.7% dividend yield is two percentage points higher than that of the FTSE 100.Unilever is forecast to grow its dividends by around 6% next year as an improving global economic outlook takes hold. Its exposure to growing consumer markets across the emerging world means it could generate impressive profit growth that makes its 3.4% dividend yield increasingly attractive.And, with the company having a diverse range of brands and exposure to a variety of countries, its potential to deliver a reliable passive income seems to be high.last_img read more

Anthony Holder, president of the diocesan Standing Committee, left. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] On June 19 on behalf of the Diocese of Southeast Florida, Bishop Peter Eaton and the president of the diocesan Standing Committee, the Rev. Anthony Holder, presented a new wooden primatial cross to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry at his office at the Church Center in New York.There is a unique history to this gift. The silver primatial cross that has been used by every presiding bishop since Bishop Arthur Lichtenberger (1958-1964) was presented to the presiding bishop by the Diocese of South Florida on Dec. 19, 1961, when Lichtenberger ordained and consecrated two suffragan bishops for the diocese: James Duncan and William Hargrave. Eight years later, in 1969, when the Diocese of South Florida was divided into the dioceses of Central Florida, Southwest Florida and Southeast Florida, Duncan became the first bishop of Southeast Florida.Ghassan Salsaa’, a Palestinian artisan in Bethlehem, made the new primatial cross out of olive wood and mother-of-pearl, representing a traditional art form in Palestine. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe cross, Curry said during the presentation, “is a reminder of the relationship between us and Palestinian Christians and Anglican Palestinian Christians, and the church in Jerusalem, regardless of the politics involved. Our ties are deeper than that.”Some months ago, Curry asked Eaton where it might be possible to find a wooden primatial cross that would be suitable for some occasions. Eaton, who has connections to Christians in the Holy Land, suggested that it might be appropriate to have the cross made in Bethlehem, for both its symbolic associations and its support of Christian artists in Palestine.“When I became a bishop four years ago, I wanted a crosier made of olive wood from Bethlehem,” Eaton said. “I have a long relationship with the Holy Land and with the Christian community there, and this was an important way for me to be connected to my many friends there.”Eaton had worked previously with the Tabash family, who run and operate a business in Bethlehem that includes a great deal of olive wood work. They identified a local olive wood artist in Bethlehem, Ghassan Salsaa’, who designed a bishop’s crosier for Eaton, which included mother-of-pearl inlay work. Olive wood and mother-of-pearl are traditional materials used by artists in Palestine.“It is a beautiful crosier,” Eaton said, “and every time I use it, I remember the Christian community in the Holy Land and all the friends that Kate (his wife) and I have there, and how important it is for us to support a vital and vibrant Christian presence in the Middle East.”So when the presiding bishop asked about a new wooden primatial cross, it seemed fitting for Eaton to return to the Tabash family and Salsaa’ to do the work.“The Episcopal Church has a long-standing relationship with the Christian communities of the Holy Land and with the Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East,” Eaton said, “and to have a new primatial cross from Bethlehem sends the right message. By asking the Tabashes and Salsaa’ to make the cross, we have a sign of our historic and important relationship, and we can support local Palestinian Christian businesses and artists.”Eaton and the Tabashes designed the cross, which Salsaa’ made.“Mr. Salsaa’ has made a beautiful cross, and it is an honor for the Diocese of Southeast Florida to present this to the presiding bishop, just as our forebears in the former Diocese of South Florida presented the previous cross,” said Holder, the president of the diocese’s Standing Committee. “We all give thanks to God for our presiding bishop’s ministry, and this is a small way in which we can show our gratitude.”Like the silver primatial cross, the new primatial cross bears the shield of the presiding bishop and an inscription:Presented toThe Presiding Bishopof The Episcopal Churchby the Diocese of Southeast FloridaThe Feast of Pentecost9 June 2019 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Smithfield, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Tags Submit a Job Listing Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Staff earn donations to four local charities over 12 months by logging their running, swimming, cycling, rowing, hiking, and now their Pokémon Go travels.All activities are being tracked on the popular fitness app Strava, but given the novelty of Pokémon Go there is no function to track Pokémon Go activities yet. So Engage’s developers have chosen instead to rely on hatched Pokémon Go eggs to measure mileage, as well as adding bonuses for some of the rarer Pokémon caught.Engage Director, Alex Willcocks, said:“We wouldn’t be true to our trademark Attention To Digital if we hadn’t noticed the buzz surrounding the launch of Pokémon Go. So we quickly updated the site to cater for resident Pokémon Masters and allow donations for Pokémon caught.”The Elympics has been underway since March and has already raised over £2,000 with staff having covered over 7,000 miles.

Soccer starts fast, finishes strong in 4-0 win over Pittsburgh

first_imgFacebook High school hoops: Paschal and Arlington Heights win, struggles continue for Country Day Linkedin ReddIt Nick Stephens printThe Horned Frogs entered Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium for Thursday night’s matchup against an undefeated Pittsburgh team knowing they needed to come out strong, and they did just that, defeating the Panthers 4-0.Kayla Hill, McKenzie Oliver, Natalee Heiser and Haley Mallion all scored for the Horned Frogs, and the TCU defense kept the Panthers off the scoresheet for the first time this season.“We made it a point of emphasis to make sure we started off well both halves, and I thought we did that,” Head Coach Eric Bell said. “It was a good performance by the team for 90 minutes, and I’m happy to come away with the victory.”The Frogs came out in their usual 4-4-2 diamond formation and started five first-year players, the most of any match this season. Missing from the starting lineup was defender Tijana Djuricek, who dressed out but did not enter the match.Midfielder Yazmeen Ryan missed her third consecutive match and was labeled as day-to-day by Bell.Kayla Hill steps up and slots home a penalty kick against Pittsburgh on Aug. 30, 2018. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.TCU opened the scoring in the 16th minute when defender Chaylyn Hubbard was taken down at the edge of the box by a Pitt defender. The referee awarded a penalty and midfielder Kayla Hill stepped up, slotting it into the bottom-left corner.After controlling much of the first half, the Frogs doubled their lead in the 42nd minute through forward McKenzie Oliver. Oliver received a beautifully chipped pass from midfielder Haley Mallion and took care of the rest herself.“I saw the ball coming over the defense and I saw the keeper diving, so I just decided to take a touch past her and finish with my left foot,” Oliver said.In the 64th minute, midfielder Tara Smith received the ball and sprinted down the right side of the field. Smith passed it to forward Natalee Heiser around the penalty spot, and Heiser calmly turned and finished past the goalkeeper for TCU’s third goal of the night.The final goal came in the 89th minute– Oliver had a chance to score, but she elected instead to make an unselfish pass across the box to midfielder Haley Mallion, who tapped it in at the far post.“We were excellent,” Oliver said. “As a collective whole, it was probably one of the better games we’ve played all season.”Defender Chaylyn Hubbard controls the ball against Pittsburgh on Aug. 30, 2018. Photo by Cristian Argueta Soto.The win improves TCU to 4-0-1 on the season, with the lone draw coming in their last game against SMU. With a strong performance behind them, the mood of the team after the match was upbeat.“Out of all four of my years here, this is the best we’ve been,” Oliver said. “I think that we’re going to be very, very successful.”After a five-game stretch at home to open the season, the Horned Frogs will play their next three matches on the road.“I think that we’re going to have to be willing to fight and handle the physicality of the game,” Bell said. “Once we’ve done that, we can make it into a soccer game. If we’re able to do both, then I think we’ll be fine.”TCU takes on Missouri at 6:30 p.m. Sunday in Columbia.

Limerick on Covid watch list WhatsApp TAGSathleteCommunityLimerick City and CountyNewsPallasgreensean byrnes Facebook Sean ByrnesUNSTOPPABLE Pallasgreen teenager Sean Byrnes has never let a disability stand in his way and his latest achievement is to become Ireland’s first officially qualified bike mechanic.15 year-old Sean’s motto is that “All Things Are Possible” and he is the living embodiment of that, despite being born with Spina bifida and Hydrocephalus and having no use of his lower limbs.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sean has played wheelchair basketball, learned to swim and scuba dive, founded the Limerick Hand Trike Club and raised money to buy hand trikes for other disabled users. He completed five Great Limerick Runs with his mother Fiona and has just become Ireland first and youngest Certified City and  Guilds Bicycle Mechanic.Sean was honoured with a Mayoral reception last year and was selected as a winner in the Garda Youth Awards for his many achievements.He told the Limerick Post, “I really enjoy participating in as many activities as possible with a can-do attitude to life.“In 2013, the Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) loaned me a three-wheel hand trike for three months. Unfortunately, I had to return this. Luckily for me, Deirdre McDonagh, a physiotherapist in the Central Remedial Clinic in Dublin who I see once a year, donated another hand trike to me.“This proved to be a lifeline as it gave me the opportunity to continue to enjoy going out on the road at weekends, meeting the neighbours for a chat along the way.”Sean completed an intensive four day Professional Bicycle Mechanics Training Programme at The High Nelly training centre in Pallasgreen to become Ireland’s first  City and Guilds certified bicycle mechanic which will allow him to be the official bicycle mechanic for his club.“The programme was physically challenging but when I completed the final day and received my certification, it was the proudest day of my life”.Sean now has his sights set on participating in Europe’s first Engineering Academy for Bicycle design and Manufacture in Limerick as part of his transition year school programme.He hopes that the 20-week programme will help him achieve his goal of one day building his own customised hand trike.Marty Mannering of the Bicycle Engineering Academy said they were delighted when Sean asked if he could attend their professional bicycle mechanics training programme.“We have fixed Sean’s professional hand trike a few times and every time we worked on the incredible machine we wondered how well he was doing in making a name for himself among the hand trike competitive world. The bike is an engineering work of art and Sean can now do the work needed to keep it maintained himself.”“We would hope that Sean will join the first lucky students to avail of the full-time bicycle engineering design and build traineeship which will be based in Limerick City at our new Academy in Roxboro which is due to open its doors in September.Details on the Bicycle Engineering Academy are available on Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Linkedin Advertisement Printcenter_img Previous articleShannon Group pays tribute to outgoing Chair Rose HynesNext articleFlooding on graves in St Mary’s cemetery Patrickswell Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.
