The company was crowned as one of the top 10 European dividend aristocrats, with a 7.5% yield. Consumer staples is one of the safest categories in which investors could invest during this uncertain time. Smoking is a habit that is hard to shake even in a pandemic, and so I believe that the need for tobacco will continue for smokers. The tobacco business typically benefits from its high margin of roughly 80%, which will protect its dividend over the long term. This is a deep value stock in my opinion. The interest rate will remain extremely low for the foreseeable future, and so this is a great opportunity for investors to unlock this incredible safe yield.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…Best UK shares to buy now?

City Backs Repeal of Racist Housing Law

first_imgThe city is supporting an effort to repeal an article in the state constitution dating back to the days of segregation that prohibits cities and counties from building or buying certain low-income housing projects without voter approval.According to Article 34 of the state constitution, “No low-rent housing project shall hereafter be developed, constructed, or acquired in any manner by any state public body until, a majority of the qualified electors of the city, town or county, as the case may be, in which it is proposed to develop, construct, or acquire the same, voting upon such issue, approve such project by voting in favor thereof at an election to be held for that purpose, or at any general or special election,” the article reads.The City Council’s Legislative Policy Committee was scheduled to receive information on Senate Constitutional Amendment (SCA) 2, which would repeal Article 34, on Tuesday.The committee will also receive a review on other housing bills. The city is supporting several bills that aim to expand eviction moratoriums.Article 34 was written in 1950 as African-American populations began increasing in predominantly white communities.“Article 34 is a scar on the California Constitution. It’s designed to keep people of color and poor people out of certain neighborhoods. And it needs to be repealed,” said Democratic state Sen. Wiener of San Francisco, chair of the Senate Housing Committee, in a prepared statement.“Publicly owned affordable housing for low-income people is critical to reducing homelessness and ensuring that housing is available to people of all income levels. This important source of housing shouldn’t be singled out for voter approval when other types of housing aren’t.” Wiener said.Article 34 has been softened by other laws that require approval for broad plans to build publicly funded housing. Those laws prevent cities from being forced to hold special elections for every project.Typically, Article 34 could be avoided by limiting public assistance to 49% of the units in a given project.According to “Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice,” published by the city’s Housing Department in 2013, the city has typically complied with Article 34 on a project-by-project basis by utilizing one or more of the article’s exemptions.“We have 900 affordable units in the pipeline,” said Pasadena Housing Director Bill Huang. “The reason why they can move forward is they use multiple sources of finances. If less than 50% of the units are funded by the city then the project is exempt.”Huang said Article 34 has never prevented a project from being built during his time in Pasadena.However, developers are still forced to spend money on legal costs and planning to avoid Article 34 as they wend their way through the planning process.Developments using only low-income housing tax credits, whether state or federal, are not governed by Article 34.“It’s something from an anti-low-income, racist perspective,” Huang said. “It doesn’t even do what it was intended to do. It’s toothless, and it’s long past time to get rid of it.” Top of the News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Honduras Joins International Humanitarian Aid Effort for Haiti

first_imgBy Kay Valle/Diálogo October 14, 2016 Two natural disasters have struck the Caribbean nation in less than a decade. Still, partner nations have once again responded without delay, offering their assistance without regard to distance or resources. Honduras was no exception; it joined the rescue and humanitarian-aid efforts that Haiti is receiving after the recent onslaught of Hurricane Matthew. “The HONCON (Honduras Contingent) Mission will temporarily stop acting as a peacekeeping contingent in order to function as a rescue contingent,” said Colonel Carlos Portillo, spokesperson for the Honduran Armed Forces. HONCON is the fifth peace mission that Honduras has sent to Haiti since 1995. It is composed of 47 members of the Armed Forces, including commissioned and non-commissioned officers and troops that had arrived in Haiti in June 2016 to work with the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). “The contingent is a show of solidarity from the Honduran government to other peoples and governments. This (mission) allows our military, within the framework of international cooperation, to demonstrate the preparation, capacity and professionalism of its human resource,” according to the Secretariat of Security’s report on October 12th. After Hurricane Matthew, Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández instructed the proper authorities to form an aid commission and to provide assistance to the citizens of Haiti affected by the hurricane. “This cannot wait. I made the decision and gave instructions to the minister of the Permanent Contingencies Commission (COPECO). On Tuesday, October 11th, a plane with humanitarian aid was sent to our Haitian brothers,” stated President Hernández. He also confirmed that the “HONCON peace force will join the effort to help the Haitian people.” Col. Portillo explained that “the Honduran Air Force (FAH, per its Spanish acronym) was responsible for transporting the rescue mission.” Specialized institution After the passage of Matthew, the most powerful Atlantic hurricane in a decade, Haitian authorities expressed concerns over food security to the arriving international partners. “We are concerned with avoiding any possible famines in the country within three months due to the destroyed plantations,” Haitian President Jocelerme Privert expressed to the media. A FAH aircraft transported the aid to Haiti, led by COPECO Minister Lisandro Rosales, who traveled with a committee of members from the Rapid Response Unit. Rosales explained to the media that the aid consisted of four metric tons of non-perishable food. “This will meet the needs of some 10,000 people, which will create a positive impact for approximately 2,500 Haitian families,” he stated as he left for Haiti. The humanitarian aid package was prepared by the FAH and consisted of non-perishable food, basic medications, blankets, four metric tons of purified water, personal hygiene kits, and clothing. The aircraft departed from the Héctor Caraccioli Moncada Air Base in La Ceiba, department of Atlántida. “The FAH personnel have worked very hard to transport aid to the [COPECO] personnel and the media, which will keep us informed about the conditions of the Haitian people. We are thus bringing a helping hand to our Haitian brothers,” stated Lieutenant Colonel Armando Martínez Rueda, commander of the air base. Minister Rosales told Diálogo that Haitian Interior Minister Francois Anick Joseph welcomed his country’s help. The meeting also served to demonstrate the solidarity expressed by President Hernández in the name of the Honduran people. Upon returning to the country, Rosales indicated that “the Honduran government’s willingness to continue providing help to the people of Haiti is firm. The Armed Forces and other institutions like COPECO that are specialized in situations of risk are both well positioned to bring the needed humanitarian aid to the authorities and citizens of Haiti,” he concluded.last_img read more

It will guarantee the club a minimum of $550,000.“The mood in the camp is positive but most importantly, the players have the self-belief that they have what it takes to knock out Sundowns. I’m confident that we can get the result we want because our style of play guarantees us to create chances and we shall create them,” Mutebi said.Mutebi believes game approach will be important if at all his team stands any chance against the reigning African champions.“We are set, the team has no concerns at all, the preparations have been smooth and we are ready for the game,” he said in a pre- match press briefing on Friday morning. Like I have always said, the players must understand the game and the way we approach game situation will be important.” Mutebi reassured ,  insisting that he will keep the same playing style like he has employed in the previous games.“We respect them (Sundowns) because they are defending champions but we shall play our way, keep possession, and create chances because we need to score.”KCCA FC captain Dennis Okot believes they are motivated as players and ready for the challenge.“We could have had a factor of timidness in the opening stages of the first leg and we regrouped and managed to put up a good show. Therefore this motivates us and gives us self-belief that we can march them.”Midfielder Tom Masiko returns to the team after shaking off an injury that saw him miss the flight to South Africa and he is available for selection.Sundowns won the first leg 2-1 at the Lucas Moripe stadium last week and winner on aggregate will advance to the group stages.SOURCE: on: WhatsApplast_img read more
