Enter Your Email Address Making a passive income has become increasingly difficult since the start of 2020. Continued low interest rates and challenging trading conditions mean there are fewer opportunities to earn a sound income return than there were even just a handful of months ago.However, by focusing your capital on companies with defensive characteristics and affordable dividends, you could generate a worthwhile income return over the long run. It could improve your financial prospects and enable you to enjoy a greater degree of financial freedom.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…Passive income prospectsWith interest rates likely to remain at low levels over the medium term as policymakers seek to support the economy, making a passive income from assets such as cash and bonds may become more difficult. They may be unable to provide a sufficient return on your capital, and may even reduce your spending power if their returns lag inflation.Therefore, buying dividend stocks could be the most worthwhile means of obtaining an income return over the coming years. Even though stock prices could be volatile over the coming months, weak investor sentiment may mean that the yields on offer across many stock market sectors are highly attractive relative to other income-producing assets. By purchasing a diverse range of high-yielding stocks, you could generate a much higher income return than that available through other mainstream assets.Defensive characteristicsWhile some companies have decided to reduce or postpone their dividend payments over recent months, others continue to offer an appealing passive income. They often include businesses with defensive characteristics, whereby their business models are less correlated with the wider economy’s performance than many of their index peers.For example, companies operating in the utility and consumer goods sectors may be less impacted by coronavirus than businesses in the retail and travel & leisure industries. As such, buying companies with business models that are less likely to be impacted by a slowdown in global GDP growth could be a means of obtaining a solid income return after the recent market crash.Affordable dividendsBuying stocks that have affordable dividends could be another means of obtaining a solid passive income at the present time.Many businesses are likely to experience slowing demand for their goods or services as factors such as rising unemployment and weak consumer confidence take hold in many of the world’s major economies. If they have dividends that were previously very affordable, in terms of being easily covered by net profit over the past few years, they may be less likely to cut shareholder payouts in response to a period of weaker profitability.Therefore, by assessing the affordability of a company’s dividend, you could build a more robust income stream in what may prove to be a challenging period for income-seeking investors.

Educating young boys and girls key to addressing gender-based violence

Girls also need to be taught that a man is not a superior being. This would help bring about a generation that understands that a man and woman are supposed to live in harmony as equals,” he said. “If more men participate, it would help alleviate the subjection of women to oppression. More men ought to be invited to such programs and when possible every married woman should bring their spouse to such an event.”Zacharia Luhanga, deputy permanent secretary for the Eastern Province of Zambia, said that the government of Zambia applauds women for their contribution to development of the country in the different spheres of their operations.However, he acknowledged the many challenges that women have to deal with in a “male-dominated” society. “In Zambia, this event is being celebrated behind the backdrop of despicable acts — mostly perpetuated by men — ranging from wife battering, defilement and rape,” he lamented.“We are overwhelmed with news of young girls or women being raped, defiled or murdered somewhere within the country. It is most shaming that in most cases, it is a person who is well known and even trusted by victims who is behind such heinous crimes,” the government official said.The Rev. Dannis Milanzi, vicar general of Eastern Zambia and director of Kachere Development Programmes, the social and project wing of the diocese, acknowledged the difficulty faced by women to attain personal freedom.“Traditionally and culturally [in Africa], it is very difficult for a woman to get a loan from the bank to start their own businesses. Banks will usually ask for collateral and a letter of consent from the husband. If well empowered, women have the potential to raise their own funds and become independent,” he said.He was referring to the relationship that exists between financial freedom and gender-based violence concluding that a woman who is independent stands a better chance of avoiding both verbal and physical abuse.Meanwhile, the Anglican Diocese of Eastern Zambia on March 7 celebrated its first ever candlelight vigil service in the town of Chipata as a preparatory step for International Women’s Day.“For the first time in Chipata (Zambia), we have had a vigil candlelight service in commemoration of women and men who have died because of gender based violence,” announced Mchombo.The service that was held in St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Cathedral was attended by Christians from various denominations and a number of Zambian government officials including the deputy permanent secretary for the Eastern Province of Zambia.Fr. Gabriel Nyoni, priest of St. Anne’s Cathedral, welcomed all the congregants to the cathedral and encouraged them to “feel free to interact” saying “in the house of the Lord, no evil can disturb our service.”Speaking during the service, Milanzi said, “ Sexual and physical abuse happens in all types if families. What happened in Tamar’s family [the biblical story] is an indication that there is the capacity for people to allow their sexuality to become abusive.”Mchombo was grateful for the many people who attended the event.  “This years’ commemoration has been very impressive in terms of turnout. We have had people from various denominations turning out in large numbers. Many others have come in from government and the private sector,” he said.Commenting on an Anglican church service being hosted in a Roman Catholic cathedral, the bishop said: “The names of the denominations that we have are in a way artificial. The church is supposed to be one except we have chosen to give each other different names.”“As the [Anglican] Church, we work ecumenically,” he said. “We decided to come together on this issue because of a common objective. Issues of gender-based abuse affect all of us [and] we are grateful to God for the way the church is able to work together on issues of common interest.”“For instance, with the Roman Catholics, we share the management of St. Francis Hospital which our biggest hospital in the [eastern] province. Our motivation is to serve humanity and bring about dignity to our people in terms of provision of good services,” he said.The bishop encouraged men to participate fully in such events. He said, “Our menfolk should participate in such events because it’s men who seem to be ignorant about the importance of such events.“Men and women need to complement each other. One thing that is so prominent in the creation story is the creation of man and woman in the image of God. This shows that a woman and a man are created equal.” Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Knoxville, TN Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Advocacy Peace & Justice, Submit a Job Listing Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Shreveport, LA Children, Rector Belleville, IL By Bellah ZuluPosted Mar 13, 2013 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC 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 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Tampa, FL Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Albany, NY Rector Bath, NC This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Anglican Communion, Youth & Young Adults An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Gender Justice, Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Director of Music Morristown, NJ Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

As food banks see increased need, United converts cargo facilities into food distribution centers

first_imgUnited(HOUSTON) — Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, a Houston-based United employee who usually handles baggage is now leading a companywide effort to transform empty cargo facilities into food distribution centers.In Houston, the food bank is currently “working at 150%,” according to spokesperson Paula Murphy.The nonprofit, which covers 18 counties in Southeast Texas, went from distributing between 400,000 to 500,000 pounds of food per day prior to the COVID-19 outbreak to distributing 750,000 pounds at a minimum.The Houston food bank had put in a request for 400 members of the National Guard to help them with distribution, and some of their partners that had given them space in the past — soup kitchens and food pantries — were forced to close their doors due to the virus.The food bank ran a television advertisement asking for help, and five-year United employee Mark Zessin took note.While the need for food continued to increase at the food bank, demand for travel in the U.S. reached record lows. Zessin noticed many of his fellow employees at George Bush Intercontinental Airport had extra down time at work as the number of travelers dwindled.“They were quickly running out of room, and it was a challenge to find volunteers given the stay-at-home orders,” Zessin told ABC News. “I thought we may have some assets they could use.”This week Zessin’s vision became a reality at the airport — hundreds of United employees from all departments are now sorting, packaging and distributing up to 6,000 relief packages to families in need in Houston every day.“Mark is too humble to say this, but he has led these efforts,” Houston airport United Communications Manager David Gonzalez said. “This wasn’t the only idea Mark brought forth, but it’s the biggest one so far.”Zessin is also working on organizing a blood drive and next week he plans on hand delivering thank you cards to health care workers. The Houston project has been so successful United said it is working to open a second distribution center at its cargo facility in San Francisco.President and CEO of the Houston Food Bank Brian Greene said they would not forget the generosity, especially given the “particularly trying times for United Airlines and their almost 100,000 employees” as the airlines continue to take an unprecedented financial hit.“You get up in the morning and try to make a difference,” Zessin said. “We all do.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
