first_img FOREIGN born people are less likely to claim state benefits than their UK born counterparts in nearly all British regions and countries, official data showed yesterday.And in some regions almost half the UK born population are claiming benefits or tax credits, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed.Where foreign born people receive more, the difference is “negligible” the ONS said.Over 45 per cent of UK born people in Wales, the north east and the north west are in receipt of the welfare payments.The largest employment group for the foreign born population in many regions and countries is in elementary occupations such as labourers and couriers.London has the largest percentage of foreign-born people, comprising 34 per cent of its population. The west midlands and the south east have 11 per cent foreign born people.

FTSE 100 investors! 2 themes I’m watching in 2020 as I plan for retirement

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Crystal ball-gazing is not my investing style. But today I’d like to discuss two themes that I believe will be important in 2020 and how I’d continue to invest in the light of macroeconomic and political developments.Volatile geopolitical developmentsFor the average investor, I think it’s better not to make hasty decisions based on any geopolitical expectations. 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…The UK has a healthy economy. However, Brexit has dominated our lives for over three years and left the economy with many question marks. The final weeks of 2019 also saw general election uncertainty. Overseas, trade worries between the US and China continued to bite. Nonetheless, 2019 was a year of robust investment returns for many asset classes, including the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indices. You could have been invested in a wide range of assets and done well last year. In 2020, I expect there will be plenty of market-moving developments both in domestic politics and international affairs. Many in the US have already started discussing how political uncertainty will be elevated by the forthcoming presidential elections in November.Nervousness about global growth prospects may give broader markets the jitters at some point during the year. And prices of oil, gold and other commodities will likely fluctuate as geopolitical headlines hit the wires during the year.Yet retails investors would be better off if they stopped worrying and instead concentrated on their long-term investment goals. For example, I’d regularly review my portfolio with an eye to diversifying. Diversification, either by sector or geography, may provide a relatively defensive investment opportunity.If you’re not quite sure as to how to diversify, you may consider buying a FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 tracker fund, or the FTSE All-World ETF that tracks the performance of a large number of stocks worldwide. Interest rates may stay lower for longerFollowing the 2008/09 financial crisis, central banks globally started reducing interest rates. And the strong bull market of the past decade was in part a result of these low rates.While economists and analysts debate both the advantages and perils of easy money, many in the City concur that low interest rates are likely to stay with us for the foreseeable future.Such low interest rates are generally good news for consumers with loans, as well as for businesses that borrow to make investments. But perpetually low rates also mean low returns on Cash ISAs for Britons, as the top easy-access Cash ISA rate hovers around 1.35%.Therefore, I expect another strong year for many popular dividend shares. Dividends have long been an important source of passive income for a wide range of investors. Currently there are several companies I’d consider buying, especially if there is any weakness in their share prices. In the FTSE 100, they include:Aviva, dividend yield of 7.2%, forward P/E 7.3British American Tobacco,  dividend yield of 6.1%, forward P/E 10.1Lloyds Banking Group, dividend yield of 5.2%, forward P/E 8.8Persimmon, dividend yield of 6.4%, forward P/E 12.9WPP, dividend yield of 5.6%, forward P/E 10.9In the FTSE 250, they include:Bakkavor Group, dividend yield of 4.2%, forward P/E 10.9Hammerson, dividend yield of 8.4%, forward P/E 11.1Inchcape, dividend yield of 3.7%, forward P/E 12Marks and Spencer Group, dividend yield of 5%, forward P/E 11.6Petrofac, dividend yield of 7.5%, forward P/E 6.2Finally, the iShares UK Dividend UCITS ETF may be a possibility to consider for a long-term portfolio.

Apopka High School graduate continues family tradition of naval service

first_img By Dusty Good, Navy Office of Community Outreach (Mayport, Fla.) – A 2011 Apopka High School graduate provides key support as part of combat operations aboard the USS Saint Louis, stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Florida.Petty Officer 2nd Class Penni Hilson serves as an operations specialist responsible for tracking and plotting foreign objects to ensure the mission is accomplished.Hilson credits success in the Navy to many of the lessons learned at Apopka High School.“I learned patience growing up,” said Hilson. “If I didn’t have it I wouldn’t be where I am today.”2011 Apopka grad and Petty Officer 2nd Class Penni HilsonLCS is a fast, agile, mission-focused- platform designed for operation in near-shore environments yet capable of open-ocean operation.The ship’s technological benefits allow for swapping mission packages quickly, meaning sailors can support multiple missions, such as surface warfare, mine warfare, or anti-submarine warfare. Designed to defeat threats such as mines, quiet diesel submarines, and fast surface craft, littoral combat ships are a bold departure from traditional Navy shipbuilding programs. The LCS sustainment strategy was developed to take into account the unique design and manning of LCS and its associated mission modules.According to Navy officials, the path to becoming an LCS sailor is a long one. Following an 18-month training pipeline, sailors have to qualify on a simulator that is nearly identical to the ship. This intense and realistic training pipeline allows sailors to execute their roles and responsibilities immediately upon stepping onboard.Hilson is now a part of a long-standing tradition of serving in the Navy our nation needs.“My brother, dad, grandfather, and husband have all served in the military; it’s pretty much a family tradition,” said Hilson.Hilson is part of a warfighting team that readily defends America at all times.“I am very proud of the training and helping junior sailors,” said Hilson. “During the installation flooding, I was able to coordinate with my junior sailors to secure our important documents so that they did not get ruined. Then I coordinated with local emergency responders in the recovery effort.”Hilson is playing an important part in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness, strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy.“Our priorities center on people, capabilities, and processes, and will be achieved by our focus on speed, value, results, and partnerships,” said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. “Readiness, lethality and modernization are the requirements driving these priorities.”As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon capital assets, Hilson and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes.Serving in the Navy, Hilson is learning about being a more respectable leader, sailor, and person through handling numerous responsibilities.“Serving in the Navy means I am sacrificing daily comforts to ensure the mission gets done,” said Hilson.

Don’t throw anything away. That was the first request the client made for her new house in Guayllabamba, Ecuador. Patchwork and quilting are not only her work, but also her philosophy of life, so she tries to recycle everything she can. The second request was to find solutions for the house on one single level. This would allow comfortable access for her and her mother, who would also be her neighbor in an already existing house just a few steps away from hers. Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThese two requests would become the basis of the design. All decisions were made with the intention of not throwing anything away and taking advantage of all the materials we had on hand.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricTo begin, a single-level floor plan involved clearing out a large amount of earth. This earth was then used to build the mud walls that became the main structure of the house. In addition, almost all the windows, doors, and cabinets were recycled from the client’s previous home. Everything was recycled as a patchwork design. Materials that would seemingly be considered useless or not worthy were made to work by means of different systems. The windows were joined together and adapted to the wooden columns and mud walls; restored doors were hung from the concrete beams; restored and rebuilt cabinets were adapted to fit in new spaces, and old gates and fences were used to enclose the new garden.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe three-meter tall mud walls are arranged in a “C” shape for structural rigidity, which is basic when constructing with rammed earth. The “C” walls shelter the private spaces of the house, which are then closed off with the recycled windows and doors. On one side of the house are the quilting studio, the main bedroom, and the laundry/pet room. These areas allow the owner to withdraw into her own private space even when the house is full of people. This entire side of the house opens out to a private garden through a collage of recycled windows. On the opposite side of the house, three guestrooms are laid out as small yet complete spaces in which to rest.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe large open living space is located between the two private side wings, and constitutes the central and most important space in the house. This area draws one towards the outside view and recreational zone where family activities are closely related to nature. The inside walls of the house are painted white so that the patchwork wall hangings can stand out.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe roof consists of a system of wooden beams, tensioned trusses and a thin concrete slab. Several skylights provide proper lighting for the guestrooms and the corridor leading to the owner’s private quarters.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe outdoor area consists of a large avocado and custard apple orchard.

New Community Foundation giving initiative helps people support local community

She can be reached via Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland has launched an initiative aimed at encouraging people to sign up to donating each month to help local causes.In celebration of its 30th year, Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland is seeking 30 people who are passionate about their local community to take part in The Giving Network.Members are asked to donate at least £30 a month into a fund at the Community Foundation.  The Foundation will then double donations £1-for-£1 in the first year, up to a maximum of £1,000.The Community Foundation has identified poverty, mental wellbeing and diversity as being the priority issues for the area in the immediate future, and these themes will form the basis of a long-list of nine organisations that will be presented to Giving Network donors at an event later in the year: three from each.  Donors will be able to vote for their top choice from each theme, plus one extra from any theme, giving a total of four groups.The four with the most votes will go through to the Giving Event next May, where donors will meet the groups face to face and then choose one, or more, of the four to receive their portion of the fund.The initiative is backed by Ward Hadaway law firm, which is also celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.Rob Williamson, Chief Executive of the Community Foundation, said:“We’re looking for the next generation of people to lead the way in making a difference to people’s lives across the North East. Many people find it hard or bewildering when considering making charitable donations – so we’ve made it easy. By joining the Giving Network, all the leg work is done for you – and you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you’re donating to the most worthy causes.”  181 total views,  3 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 30 July 2018 | News  182 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Tagged with: giving circles matched givinglast_img read more
