Forget the February Premium Bond draw! I’d generate regular income this way

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares At the start of each month, the Premium Bond draw from National Savings and Investments (NS&I) generates a lot of interest. After all, here in the UK, it’s estimated that 22 million of us (myself included) own some Premium Bonds.This has been touted as a ‘free lottery’ in the sense that your bond is backed by the Government, so the risk of you not getting back your initial investment is extremely low. While it doesn’t pay interest like a normal bond coupon, you get entered into a prize draw each month to win prizes ranging from £25 to £1m. Over a period of time, most Premium Bond holders hope to win some form of prize.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…But if you’re wanting to generate regular income from your investments, are Premium Bonds really better than buying a dividend-paying stock?A numbers gameAs with most things finance-related, it’s easier to make money when you already have money. This seems like a sweeping generalisation, but there are plenty of examples that prove this. At a basic level, if you bought £1,000 worth of a stock and it rallied 10%, you would make £100. If you invested £100,000, you would make £10,000. This principle holds true in a different sense when looking for income either via a dividend-paying stock or via Premium Bonds. With the latter, the more you ‘invest’, the more likely you are to win cash prizes (just think of it as buying more lottery tickets for the same draw). Premium Bonds have an average return of about 1.25%, So if we’re comparing £1,000 of a dividend-paying stock to £10,000 of premium bonds, I would opt for the bonds, purely from a numbers point of view.But if we were comparing the same notional amount of investment in both a dividend-paying stock and the bonds, I would opt for the stock. Why? Simply because, despite that average return figure, there’s no guarantee of me winning anything from the Premium Bond draw, whereas if a firm states it’s paying a dividend, I know exactly how much I will get paid.Certain versus uncertain incomeThe key part in all of this is ‘regular income’ that I mentioned in the title. For example, you can go to the HSBC investor website and see all the historical dividends over the years that the company has paid. It varies slightly year-on-year, but these dividends are pair regularly. The current dividend yield stands at 5.35%. So would you rather have this 5.35% (with limited volatility) or have a possible 0% on the bonds but have the potential upside (a one-in-34bn chance that you could win £1m)?I’d choose HSBC, but it’s not the only one I’d go for as there are many reliable, dividend-paying stocks on the FTSE 100.Ultimately, whether to buy stocks or Premium Bonds is a call each investor makes for his or herself, but don’t feel like it has to be a choice of one or the other. Diversification in investments is very important. That is why I hold both dividend-paying stocks and some Premium Bonds. It enables me to spread my risk over different asset classes and means I have regular income from dividends, but also a potential huge upside from a prize draw win. The biggest chunk of my investment cash still goes into shares though!

AdventHealth pilots nursing model that could transform patient care nationwide

The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The new model allows nurses to focus on patient care, less on paperworkFrom AdventHealthAdventHealth is pleased to announce preliminary results of a pilot project that could revolutionize the patient care model across the country. Under the pilot, nurses are freed from onerous paperwork, allowing them to spend more time focusing on patients and their needs.During the pilot, nurses have been paired with a Care Team Assistant (CTA). The CTA’s duties are similar to a patient care technician but will have the additional responsibility of documenting patients’ care under a nurse’s supervision. By relieving nurses of heavy documentation responsibility, they can spend more quality time with patients and play a more active role in patients’ care.“AdventHealth is committed to finding innovative solutions to health care problems. We created this model to improve the way we work to make it easy for both our patients and staff,” said Eric Stevens, CEO of acute care services for AdventHealth in metro Orlando. “Our nursing staff is key to providing compassionate, whole-person care. A hospital stay can be an unnerving experience. This program helps our nurses spend quality time with our patients and their families to focus on supporting them while they heal.”The initial pilot began in 2018 and is being tested at select units in AdventHealth’s Central Florida division. AdventHealth engaged CareThrough, a HealthChannels company, and sister company ScribeAmerica, which provides the scribe workforce in AdventHealth’s emergency departments. CareThrough is providing training and assistance with developing the CTA role.“With the alarming rate of nurse burnout, compassion fatigue, and a workforce shortage predicted to last through 2030, supporting nurses has become a health care imperative,” said Kyle Cooksey, president of CareThrough. “AdventHealth is proactively creating a culture of engaged nurses. The pilot aligns with our mission to reduce burnout and strengthen patient care.”In the first year of the pilot, staff responsiveness (a measurement of the patient experience) improved by 12%, lab turnaround time improved by 13% and 73% of nurses said they feel they are able to spend more time with patients when assisted by a CTA.“This pilot is helping me be the type of nurse that I dreamed of,” said Christine Reyes, a registered nurse at AdventHealth Altamonte Springs. “I became a nurse because I wanted to show compassion to people who need it most, and this pilot is allowing me to do that even more.”AdventHealth plans to build on the success of the pilot and expand the program to other units.AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division encompasses 16 hospitals in the six counties in and surrounding metro Orlando: Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Volusia, and Flagler. The Central Florida Division’s care network also includes more than 30 CentraCare urgent-care centers; dozens of sports-rehab and imaging centers; and hundreds of physicians ranging from primary care to a full spectrum of specialties.CareThrough is the 360-degree care management solution for improving quality of care, patient engagement, and financial outcomes. As healthcare transitions to value, CareThrough leads the way in improving the patient care experience via highly-skilled ancillary support. Our Nurse CTAs and Care Navigators improve the entire patient experience leading to better health results and decreased costs. For more details, go to You have entered an incorrect email address!

Anti-fascists organize resistance as crisis grips Ukraine coup regime

first_imgMarchers in Odessa defy threats, demand a referendum on autonomy and an end to political repression, March 23.Photo: BorotbaJust a month after a U.S.-backed coup d’état in Ukraine brought to power a regime dominated by neo-Nazis and pro-Western capitalist politicians, the ruling junta finds itself in deep crisis.Threats from the government in Kiev and its U.S. and Western European patrons were unable to intimidate the people of the Crimean autonomous region, who voted overwhelmingly to break away from Ukraine and affiliate with Russia on March 16. Russian President Vladimir Putin and local leaders made it official on March 18.Now infighting has exploded among the fascist factions in the ruling coalition in Kiev.The International Monetary Fund, meanwhile, has agreed to give the coup-makers an $18 billion loan — but only if they accept painful austerity measures. These are almost certain to throw Ukraine deeper into chaos.Further, Kiev has been unable to subdue the rebellious eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, where anti-fascists are digging in to organize grassroots resistance.People in these major working-class industrial and mining areas are rising to oppose the junta and demand political and economic autonomy. They reject the rule of the billionaire oligarchs appointed as new regional governors by Kiev. Some are even calling for re-nationalization of privatized industries.At this time, most are not calling for separation from Ukraine.Thieves fall outPhoto: BorotbaOvernight on March 27-28, members of the neo-Nazi Right Sector gang surrounded the Ukrainian Rada [parliament] and threatened to storm it — much as they had done a month earlier, when the elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych was toppled.But this time, the Right Sector was protesting its own erstwhile partners, some of whom were barricaded inside, including members of the far-right Fatherhood party and neo-Nazi Svoboda party.European television broadcast images of Svoboda politicians hanging out of windows shouting epithets while Right Sector goons hurled rocks at them from the street.What happened?On March 24, Right Sector leader Aleksandr Muzychko was shot dead during a police raid in the western city of Rovno. Muzychko had a long history of fascist terrorism and was on several international “most wanted” lists — a Ukrainian version of the anti-Cuba terrorist Luis Posada Carriles.The assassination of Muzychko was followed by raids on Right Sector hideouts and seizures of weapons.The hit came on orders from acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, a representative of the Fatherland party associated with former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.Avakov has established a “National Guard” under his command to deputize the fascist gangs and bring them all under the junta’s control. He also masterminded the joint neo-Nazi/police patrols that have suppressed any resistance in the western cities.Avakov represents the coalition of far-right forces that control the commanding heights of police, military and prosecutorial powers of the new regime.Some forces in the Right Sector, like Muzychko, didn’t want to follow orders. Avakov and his colleagues decided that those who wouldn’t play ball must be eliminated.The fascist street gangs served their purpose as the violent fists of the Euromaidan protests that ousted Yanukovych. But when it comes to investments and military strategy, Washington, Bonn and the IMF prefer to work with well-groomed, business-suited fascists like Avakov and Svoboda leader Oleh Tyanhybok.Tymoshenko: ‘Grab a machine gun’On March 16, the New York Daily News reported that 1.4 million people in New York City — about 1 in 5 — now rely on charities, food pantries and soup kitchens to eat. That’s an increase of 200,000 over the last five years. It’s a crisis echoed in cities, towns and rural areas across the U.S.Yet what is the top priority of political leaders in Washington? According to a headline in the March 25 New York Times, “Ukraine Aid Leads Agenda as Congress Returns.”Why?U.S. imperialism has big plans for Ukraine. First, it contain pipelines that control much of the flow of oil and gas between Russia and Western Europe. In addition, stationing NATO troops and weaponry there is also key to U.S. plans to isolate and dismember Russia.Even after promising the Kiev junta $10 billion in loans, Washington is worried about the stability of the coup. Means have to be found to stabilize the country — that is, make it profitable for the Western imperialists. That means not only controlling the far-right factions in the western part, but quelling the anti-fascist resistance in the south and east.While the inter-regime crisis was unfolding in Kiev, a leaked phone call posted online revealed more about the fires of war that the Obama administration and congressional leaders are furiously stoking.The call was from former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, considered a leading candidate in the presidential elections planned for May 25. Tymoshenko, a leader of the so-called Orange Revolution of 2004, was imprisoned for corruption before the coup.Speaking with a former military official after the Crimea referendum, Tymoshenko urged her supporters to “take up arms and kill the fucking Russians along with their leader.”Tymoshenko also said she was ready to “grab a machine gun and shoot [Putin] in the head.”The recording ends with Tymoshenko threatening to use nuclear weapons against the 8 million Russian-speakers living in Ukraine.After the call went public, Tymoshenko claimed the part about using nukes was manipulated. The rest, she confirmed, was accurate.Anti-fascists build resistanceIn the cities of southern and eastern Ukraine, the leftist Union Borotba (Struggle) is one of the groups organizing anti-fascist resistance.Borotba’s central office in Kiev was ransacked after the coup and its activists forced underground. Outside Kiev, Borotba and other anti-fascists work in a hazy state of semi-legality, operating more or less openly depending on the level of organized resistance in each city.This creates special challenges for organizers. For example, print shop owners refuse to print flyers or newspapers due to threats from the fascists. However, Borotba has managed to get help from sympathetic workers to publish its materials.A 10,000-copy run of “Front,” the first issue of a newspaper published by Borotba and the Antifascist Resistance Center, sold out in just three days.Borotba activists have set up tents and information tables to spread their message and recruit people to local anti-fascist defense committees composed of activists, workers, youths and former Red Army soldiers.In Kharkov, where the Right Sector murdered two anti-fascists on March 14, Borotba plays a leading role in organizing mass resistance.On March 22, some 2,000 people defied a ban and rallied at Freedom Square for a people’s speakout initiated by Borotba. A major goal of the event was to recruit supporters for the local defense organization, People’s Unity.The following day, hundreds marched down Rymarska Street to remember the two slain activists. They chanted: “Fascists kill! Power covers up!”Police then charged Borotba leader Denis Levin, a convener of the rally, with violating the ban and ordered him to appear in court on March 26. After a crowd of supporters picketed the court during his hearing, the judge dismissed the charge as “baseless.”In Odessa, Borotba activists took up the case of Anton Davidchenko, a local resistance leader who was seized by the “Alpha” special police unit on March 17 and kidnapped to Kiev, where he is being held incommunicado.Some 1,000 people defied fascist threats and rallied at Odessa’s Kulikovo Field on March 23 to demand a referendum on autonomy. Led by Regional Council Deputy and Borotba activist Alex Albu, they marched to the prosecutor’s office to demand Davidchenko’s release and an end to the regime’s political repression.Communist Party holds congressThe Communist Party of Ukraine (KPU) has also been targeted by the junta.On its first day, the new regime threatened an outright ban of the KPU. The party’s headquarters in Kiev was trashed and is still occupied by the Right Sector. Party members have been attacked and beaten.KPU leaders have continued to assert their membership in the parliament although they have been effectively banned from Kiev since the coup.On March 26, the KPU held its 47th Extraordinary Congress in the eastern industrial city of Donetsk. The party nominated its general secretary, Peter Simonenko, to run for president in the May elections.It is unclear whether the KPU will be allowed on the ballot, or what dangers party candidates might face.Emphasizing the need of the party to preserve its cadres and organization, Simonenko said: “We have grounds for optimism. In a short time, the new regime showed its anti-people nature and incompetence, its inability to govern. The inevitable deterioration of the situation of workers as a result of the requirements of the IMF will inevitably create the basis for a new protest movement.”Workers, youths and retirees alike are determined to defeat the far-right gangs and push back Western imperialism.

Journalist freed after being illegally imprisoned for defamation

first_img News BrazilAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en A court in the Amazonian state of Acre released Antônio Muniz, a local TV commentator and columnist for the daily newspaper O Rio Branco, on 4 December, two days after he was jailed in connection with a 2002 conviction on a charge of defaming a senator. “The court’s decision was necessary because press offences have been decriminalised,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are shocked that the court nonetheless forced Muniz to appear in handcuffs at a closed-door hearing, violating federal court resolutions. The local court clearly found it hard to recognise its mistake.”Imprisonment for press offences has been abolished in Brazil as a result of a Federal Supreme Court decision on 30 April repealing the 1967 press law.

After being sentenced to a year in prison in 2002 on a charge of defaming Federal Senator Tião Viana in a 1999 article, Muniz managed to get the sentence suspended. The decision to return him to prison is all the more incomprehensible as the reason for his imprisonment has been rendered obsolete by the Federal Supreme Court. By repealing the 1967 press law on 30 April, the Court has excluded any possibility of a criminal conviction for press offences. Muniz must therefore be released.Press freedom has made great progress in Brazil with the current federal government’s help. The repeal of the military regime’s press law is an example of this. So too are proposed laws facilitating access to information and the “Revealed Memories” database (, which finally lifts the taboo surrounding the dictatorship years (1967-1985). However, this legislative progress is taking time to be reflected at the state level.The repeal of the 1967 press law, a great legal victory, has perversely resulted in a series of preventive censorship measures against news media. The most notorious case concerns the O Estado de São Paulo daily, which has been forbidden since 31 July to refer to any financial matters involving the businessman Fernando Sarney. The case’s transfer to a court in the state of Maranhão, whose governor, Roseanna Sarney, is Sarney’s sister, has created a flagrant conflict of interest.Preventive censorship has also been imposed on two online journalists in the state of Mato Grosso, Adriana Vandoni (blog: and Enock Calvacanti (blog:, who are accused of insulting José Riva, the speaker of the Mato Grosso state assembly. An appeal court judge (desembargador) upheld the censorship of Vandoni’s blog on 2 December.The sovereignty of individual states in a federal system only applies as long as fundamental constitutional principles are not violated. For this reason, we think it is urgent and necessary that the federal authorities should issue a reminder of these principles.I thank you in advance for the attention you give to this request.Respectfully,Jean-François JulliardReporters Without Borders Secretary-Generallast_img read more

Journalists constantly prey to grave threats and violence

first_img Receive email alerts December 17, 2019 Find out more LibyaMiddle East – North Africa News Reporters Without Borders is deeply shocked by a series of acts of violence and intimidation targeting Libyan journalists in the last past few weeks.The most recent incident was the abduction of three local TV journalists while they were covering clashes at the Tamehint military base, around 30 km outside the southwestern city of Sabha, on 18 January.Everything indicates that the three Fezzan TV journalists – Zeidan Al-Mahdi, Adel Al-Sharif and Abdallah Mohamed Abu Azbah – were kidnapped by Gaddafi loyalists who overran the base. Fezzan TV presenter Nabil As-Sokni said they were released 24 hours later and were immediately hospitalized because they were badly beaten by their abductors while held.A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the Tripoli apartment of Mahmoud Al-Misrati, the editor of the independent daily Libya Al-Jadida, at around 3 a.m. on 15 January. According to Agence France-Presse, which spoke to Misrati, “the grenade narrowly missed its target, the window of his apartment, and hit a pillar without causing much damage.”Misrati has been the victim of an all-out campaign of threats by telephone and on his social network pages for the past six months. It has ranged from intimidatory messages to death threats and threats against his family.Mohamed Al-Gharyani, the satellite TV station Al-Aan’s Tripoli bureau chief, was threatened last month by gunmen attached to the interior ministry after the station broadcast a programme in its “Libya Tawa” (Libya Now) series in which a former political prisoner talked about the conditions in which she had been held .The gunmen insulted Gharyani, accused him of being “secular,” threatened to close the bureau and ordered him to leave Libya. Gharyani has repeatedly been threatened in connection with his work in recent months.Nearly three years after the start of the anti-Gaddafi revolution, the political situation in Libya is extremely unstable and the security environment is bordering on chaos. In the almost complete absence of the rule of law, journalists are continually exposed to intimidation, threats, violence, abduction and even murder.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its deep concern and urges the transitional government to end the reign of the militias. The authorities must establish a reliable and transparent system of judicial responsibility in order to break the cycle of impunity prevailing in Libya and to guarantee the safety of journalists.

Call for tourist sites to be kept open

first_imgFacebook Previous articleGarda action needed to tackle ‘plague of scramblers’Next articleFree online counselling to help with Covid challenges Alan Jacques Email Bunratty CastleLIMERICK Chamber has described the closure of Bunratty Castle and King John’s Castle from August 31 as a further blow to a Mid-West tourism sector already reeling from the collapse of international tourist arrivals.The chamber has urged Shannon Heritage to explore all available options to reverse this decision and to redouble efforts to win tourism for the region in the shoulder periods of this year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We need to declare Limerick is open for business right now and not the contrary,” said Limerick Chamber Chief Executive Officer, Dee Ryan.“King John’s Castle and Bunratty Castle are iconic visitor attractions not just for foreign travellers but also for domestic holidaymakers. As local tourism and associated businesses are working hard to return to a level of normality, the announcement that both attractions will be closing is an untimely and damaging blow to the sector and inadvertently sends the wrong message when we are trying hard to develop and support the tourism offering in the region,” Ms Ryan commented.Meanwhile, SIPTU members last week held a general meeting in the courtyard of King John’s Castle to discuss the threat of closure for the historic site and others operated by the Shannon Group.“Shannon Heritage operates cultural and historical sites from Galway to Limerick many of which, management has said, will not open for this season. It also plans to close Bunratty Folk Park and King John’s Castle on the 31st August. These plans are set to cause economic devastation to its employees and local businesses,” said SIPTU organiser Rachel Keane.“SIPTU representatives have written to Tourism Minister Catherine Martin, to intervene in this dispute. To date, we have not received a response,” she said.SIPTU activist Chris Rowley said their members are extremely worried about their future employment and how the approach of the Shannon Group will affect their livelihoods.“SIPTU members are at the forefront of the hospitality sector in Ireland and we are committed to the historic sites where many of us work.”According to SIPTU activist and seasonal worker Caroline O’Sullivan, this decision means that in 2020 and beyond she, and her colleagues, will be unable to earn money to pay their bills.“Many of the seasonal jobs at these historic sites provide workers with employment for up to ten months of the year,” she concluded.

Video shows officer using superhuman strength to stop runaway SUV from hitting teenagers

first_imgABC News(BRIDGEPORT, Conn.) — When Connecticut police officer Carlos Carmo Jr. spotted a runaway SUV with no driver and two helpless passengers freaking out inside, he realized he had to act fast.He said mustered all his strength to stop it from jumping a curb and mowing down a group of teenagers on the sidewalk.The heroics that unfolded at the corner of Boston Avenue and Bond Street in a bustling business district of Bridgeport would be hard to fathom had they not been captured on security video.“We go through a lot of scenarios, but that’s not a scenario they teach us in the academy,” Carmo said on Monday in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “That’s just one of those things where your instinct kicks in and you basically do what you got to do to keep these kids safe.”Carmo, a school resource officer, was standing in a crosswalk directing traffic around 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 16 as students from nearby Harding High School were leaving campus for the day.In the security video, a black SUV with no one at the wheel is seen rolling by Carmo and appearing to veer toward a sidewalk crowded with students.An investigation later determined that the vehicle had been parked on Boston Avenue when, for some unexplained reason, it accidentally slipped out of park, merged into eastbound traffic and began to pick up speed on the downhill slope with one person in the passenger seat and another in the back seat but no one at the wheel, according to police.“I was just thinking in my mind, ‘I got to find a way to stop this,’” Carmo recalled.Carmo said he started yelling at the students on the sidewalk to get out of the way as he began sprinting after the vehicle.“They all had headphones on and I was screaming at them,” Carmo said of the oblivious students. “They basically didn’t hear me. I don’t even think they knew what was going on until it was over.”Carmo, a four-year veteran of the Bridgeport Police Police Department, said that when he caught up to the SUV, he saw two terrified people, including an elderly woman, inside.The dramatic security footage shows Carmo grabbing onto the rear passenger-side door and opening it. Using all his might, the brawny cop is seen holding onto the door frame and bringing the vehicle to a halt.“My adrenaline basically kicked in at that point. I used my strength while dragging my feet along the ground … before the SUV could collide with anyone or anything,” said Carmo, who was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.“The people in the car as I was holding it and trying to stop it … were freaking out a little bit, they were screaming,” Carmo.No one was injured in the incident that left the two people inside the SUV with rattled nerves but relieved to be rescued by an officer who some are calling a real-life superhero.Bridgeport Mayor Joseph P. Ganim says he’s planning to hold a ceremony to publicly recognize Carmo’s “bravery, selflessness, and quick thinking in this emergency situation that could have been tragic had he not intervened.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
