Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Generating a steady stream of passive income is the ultimate goal for many investors. Sitting back and reaping the profits while others manage the business I’m invested in? Yes, please.If only it were as easy as that. My colleague Jonathan Smith worked out how much capital you would need to start generating a passive income of £1,000 per month. Spoiler alert — around £166,666 invested in certain dividend stocks would do the trick. While that is a figure to aspire to, I’d be happy with a smaller amount every month to supplement my other income streams.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…One way I would do that is to buy a handful of FTSE 100 shares with generous dividend yields. Dividends are payouts given to shareholders in a company when the company is doing well and profits are strong. Two FTSE 100 companies I think could provide passive income in the long term are Aviva (LSE:AV) and British American Tobacco (LSE:BATS).Strong yieldInsurance giant Aviva is a dividend stock I like that has room to grow this year. The company has one of the highest yields in the FTSE 100 currently. If I bought at the current share price of 360p, the yield stands at 7.5%. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5.68, the Aviva share price seems to be on the cheaper side of the Footsie. Of course, if the share price were to stall or lose value while I hold the investment, then the yield would be redundant.Aviva shares have dropped around 11% in the last year. That may sound ominous, but that is broadly in line with the FTSE 100 index as a whole, which has fallen 10%. So far, investors appear pleased with new CEO Amanda Blanc. Blanc is working to make the business more efficient its core markets of UK, Ireland, and Canada. I’m backing the company to return its share price to growth this year. As a result I would add Aviva to my portfolio for the passive income it could generate through its dividend yield.Changing businessAnother company I’d consider adding to my portfolio for passive income is British American Tobacco. As the name suggests, tobacco products remain their key brands. However, the company has recognised the need to move towards newer products due to the health risks associated with cigarettes.The company’s revenues have not been impacted by Covid-19 as much as had previously been expected. With its quarterly earnings report and forecasts to be released Wednesday, analysts have projected organic topline revenue growth of 6.7% in 2021.At its current share price of 2630p, British American Tobacco shares return a dividend yield of more than 8%. An attractive prospect for income investors.There is risk involved in buying shares of the company, however. Not least is the move towards a more health-conscious population, which is increasingly shunning cigarettes. More investors than ever now focus on ethical investing. The company is unlikely to make it into these portfolios any time soon.For now though, the projected revenue growth and 8% dividend yield mean I would add British American Tobacco to my passive income portfolio.last_img read more

It might have been through the time the was spent together, helping a friend pack his house as he was preparing to move.  Perhaps it was because that friend put his or her entire schedule on hold in order to spend time with you at a hospital waiting room. People remember the acts of those whose love was more than mere words – their love was proven by tangible giving of themselves.That is why that, at a funeral, what is remembered and shared are the things that truly mean the MOST…one’s heart, and love for others, that was given freely during his life.  That is what is remembered, and recounted with deep, appreciative emotion.Funerals also do another important thing…they cause us to pause for personal reflection, perhaps for an inventory.  It is a time to ask, “What is it that I am doing with my life? Am I spending my time and effort on the accumulation of material goods?  Or am I freely giving away to others from my heart, and from the many blessings that I’ve been given?”  I pray that the latter would be the legacy that we leave behind.  If it is, then it doesn’t just mean we died well…it means that we lived well.Feature photo by Alice Donovan of Unsplash.

One of the actions, brought by the interior ministry, accuses them of “attacking an emblem of the kingdom.” The other, brought by Ismaïl himself, is demanding 266,000 euros in damages for “failing to accord due respect to a member of the royal family.” The newspaper’s headquarters have meanwhile been closed and are being guarded by police.

There are many incidents of people sent through agents sold out to locals. Women workers are harassed and forced to become sex workers. In some cases women workers were beaten and locked up in houses” – Excerpt of PleaIn this context, the petition states that Indian embassies must work proactively and adopt effective measures to bring back those workers who are suffering the other countries through exchange programs and good will gestures.”A large number of Indians from the respondent States are going/gone to the Gulf and other countries for doing jobs as labour, drivers, helpers, salespersons, domestic workers etc. Most of the workers are uneducated or under-educated,” the plea reads.The PIL has also claimed that women workers in foreign countries are forced to become sex workers while in some cases women workers were beaten and locked up in houses.Apropos this, the plea urges the court to frame guidelines and set up a grievance redressal cell to bring back the dead bodies of Indian citizens who have died abroad and to give financial aid/insurance and legal aid to the families of the deceased.Next Storylast_img read more

Significantly, the test is scheduled to be conducted tomorrow, i.e., April 4, at Ahmedabad. 66 Subordinate Judicial Officers have been summoned for the purpose. The Association has submitted that Ahmedabad is facing the worst phase of Covid¬19 and cases are rapidly increasing hour by hour. Moreover, 5 to 6 Officers who are summoned have already tested positive of Covid-19. In this backdrop the Association said, “We feel great pain to say that arranging such test at Ahmedabad during this peak period of pandemic is very insensitive step on part of the Recruitment branch of the High Court of Gujarat.” It stated that since Judicial Officers are being forced to travel from far off places during the pandemic, possibilities are there that many officers will avoid this test. “This not only denial of the equal opportunity for the promotion but gross discrimination and breach of the fundamental right of consideration for the promotion,” it added. In this regard, it referred to Ajit Singh & Ors. v. State of Punjab & Ors., (1999) 7 SCC 209, whereby the Supreme Court held, “Article 16(1) provides to every employee otherwise eligible for promotion or who comes within the zone of consideration, a fundamental right to be “considered” for promotion. Equal opportunity here means the right to be considered” for promotion. If a person satisfies the eligibility and zone criteria but is not considered for promotion, then there will be a clear infraction of his fundamental right to be “considered” for promotion, which is his personal right.” The Association also took objection to mandatory production of Covid-negative report by these Judicial Officers. It wrote, “It appears that Hon’ble High Court is repeatedly curtailing fundamental right of Judicial Officers for the consideration for 65% promotion to the DJ cadre from eligible SrCJs. Now, for the suitability test eligible Judicial Officers (who are in the zone of consideration) have to submit RTPCR (negative) certificate…!! To go on duty in court every morning, they don’t require such safety but to appear for the promotion test they require such certificate. This means, Judicial Officers who found positive in RTPCR are not entitled for the promotion…?” Thus, the Association has urged the Court to postpone the suitability test and arrange it virtually as per the requirement of the time.

Apart from acute shortage of Covid hospital beds, oxygen cylinders, etc., a Division Bench comprising of Justices CS Singh and Mohit Kumar Shah noted that the State is not even keeping vigil on people travelling from outside the State, who may be potential carriers of the deadly virus. “Minimum what is expected of the State-Respondents is to take all possible measures so as to ensure that persons coming from outside the State are either made to undergo rapid antigen test or they are able to show on the basis of the test reports available with them that they are not COVID positive. In case a person is found to be COVID positive, steps should to taken to ensure that he can reach a designated place for isolation or treatment with adequate and desired care and caution,” the bench ordered on Friday. The Court was hearing a suo motu case regarding incessant surge in COVID-19 cases and reported deficient healthcare infrastructure in the State.It has directed the Government to submit a report regarding the available manpower and other infrastructure at COVID Care Centres and Dedicated COVID Health Centres in the State. Patients running helter-skelter for Covid treatment It noted on the one hand the COVID patients are running helter-skelter for admission in Covid Hospitals, and on the other hand, the figures presented by the Health Department represent that a large number, rather, most of the beds available for COVID patients are unoccupied. “No acceptable logic is coming forth to explain this startling phenomenon, as admittedly the patients in the state are being denied admission because of unavailability of beds, though, lack of awareness among affected people about availability of such facilities in all the Districts of the state is being cited as one of possible reasons why there is mad rush to Patna hospitals out of a sense of fury,” the Bench observed. “No Information Available To Public”: Patna HC Directs State To Ensure Public Briefing Everyday Disclosing Cogent Covid Related Information To Public And whereas the Court was informed that a system of daily media briefing, disclosing all relevant information relating to location wise availability of facilities and infrastructure for treating COVID patients has been initiated by the State, in terms of a previous order, the Bench proceeded to observe: “Respondents have not been able to keep the people of Bihar informed about availability/ non-availability of health care facilities in the State. The State of Bihar is directed to display all relevant information in this regard on a portal dedicated for this purpose.” Shortage of medical facilities During the course of hearing, it transpired that the RT-PCR tests are not being done at the desired rate. The Court has been informed that on an average 40,000 RT-PCR tests are being done in the State of Bihar per day. It was submitted that there are 18 laboratories in different medical colleges in the State which have the machines to conduct RT-PCR tests. In addition, five private laboratories have been granted permission to conduct such tests. “The State Government is directed to ensure that at-least in these three districts, namely, Motihari, Purnia and Munger, the laboratories start functioning to enhance the number of tests… The Court expects the respondents to step up the speed/pace of RT-PCR tests in the State,” the Court said. Oxygen cylinders The Bench noted that there is critical shortage of medical oxygen in the State, which is the most essential component for treating COVID patients who require admission. However, as per data of the State Government, huge number of beds are available with oxygen. “This contradiction has remained unexplained,” the bench remarked It was informed that Government has requisitioned liquid gas from the neighbouring State of Jharkhand and it is also taking sincere measures for installation of Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) plants in the hospitals. The Bench has ordered the Executive Director, Bihar State Health Society to submit a report explaining the progress regarding installation of PSA plants. He is also asked to explore the possibility of procuring High Flow Nasal Canula (HFNC) and submit a report inasmuch as the same is reported to be effective in improving oxygenation amongst patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. CT-Scan & X-Ray The Bench noted that CT- Scan and X-ray machines are needed for medical evaluation of the health condition of COVID patients and deciding line of treatment in a given situation. It was informed that the State Government Department has placed orders for acquisition of portable X-ray machines for DCHCs and at-least 20 of them shall be installed within a month. The Court has directed the State Government to ensure that the portable X-ray machines are positively acquired and installed within the aforesaid period, if not earlier. In respect of availability of CT Scan machines, the Court was informed that at-least in 16 district hospitals of the State of Bihar, CT Scan machines are available and for 14 other districts Letters of Intent (LoI) have been issued and shall be procured within three months. The Court has directed the State Government to expedite the procurement process. Remdesivir injection The Court has taken judicial notice of acute shortage of Remdesivir injection in the State and its consequent illicit trade in black market at a staggering price. “This is matter of serious concern and the Court shall be constrained to pass appropriate orders if no befitting action is found to be taken by the State Government in this regard,” the Bench said.
