3 steps I’d take today to make passive income on giving up work

first_img Making a passive income large enough to give up work is likely to be a major ambition for many people.Through buying a diverse range of high-quality dividend shares today, it is possible to obtain a worthwhile income alongside generous capital returns.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…Although holding some cash means lower returns in the short run, it can act as a buffer to protect an investor from market downturns such as the 2020 stock market crash.Buying dividend shares for a passive incomeI think dividend shares offer the most attractive passive income among mainstream assets at the present time. Low interest rates and high property prices mean that the income returns of savings, bonds and property are relatively low. As such, for investors who have capital available to invest today and require an income right now, dividend stocks seem to me to be a valid choice as part of a basket of investments.They could also provide strong capital growth in the long run. This makes them attractive for investors who are seeking to build a portfolio from which to obtain an income at some point in the future. The high yields of many income shares suggest that they offer good value for money at the present time, which could translate into capital growth. Meanwhile, their appeal versus other assets could lead to growing demand that pushes their valuations higher in the long run. This may lead to a larger retirement portfolio that makes it easier to generate a passive income in older age.Diversifying among dividend stocksWhether an investor is seeking a passive income today or in future, diversifying among a wide range of dividend shares is an important consideration. The future outlook for the economy is very uncertain at the present time. Some companies, industries and regions could be hit harder by factors such as political change and the future path of the coronavirus pandemic.Therefore, it makes sense to have a broad range of stocks from a variety of industries and locations in a portfolio. This reduces an investor’s reliance on a small number of stocks for their capital returns or income. After all, a narrow stock choice in a portfolio could increase the risk of that passive income being dented by poor returns from one or two companies. The end result of diversification could be a stronger, and more resilient, passive income in the long run.Holding cash to reduce riskAs mentioned, cash savings offer a disappointing passive income due to low interest rates. However, holding some cash can be a sound move.For investors who seek an income today, cash can act as a buffer should the economic outlook deteriorate. This was the case in the first part of 2020, when many companies postponed or cancelled their dividends in response to the coronavirus pandemic.Similarly, holding cash can allow an investor who is building a portfolio to take advantage of sudden declines in share prices. This may enable them to use market cycles to their advantage in building a larger portfolio with a more generous passive income in the long run.

Manu Tuilagi denies assault and says he was injured for RWC anyway

first_imgFriday Sep 11, 2015 Manu Tuilagi denies assault and says he was injured for RWC anyway England centre Manu Tuilagi has denied assaulting two police officers in April, despite pleading guilty to the charges. Tuilagi was speaking at the premiere for the brilliant new film, Pacific Warriors. Tuilagi says he was injured anyway, and Stuart Lancaster knew that.Tuilagi had reportedly grabbed a taxi driver by the throat and kicked the wing mirror before pushing two female police officers, but he has now said that all that happened was he was grabbed from behind, “so I just pulled my hands away.“They touched me first and I had no idea they were police officers,” the 24-year-old explained.Stuart Lancaster axed him from England’s Rugby World Cup squad, but Tuilagi insists that he wouldn’t have been available due to injury, and Lancaster knew that.“I didn’t assault any of the police officers. It looks like I have basically beaten up the two police officers, which is not the case. In a way, I feel like I’ve been harshly treated. It’s a bit harsh, but life is harsh, you’ve got to put it behind you. I’m still young, I can still hopefully make a good comeback.“We pleaded guilty because hopefully we wanted to get the case finished and done with.“That was the plan – to go in, plead guilty and finish the case on that day, which we did. If we’d gone in and not pleaded guilty, we’d have to have adjourned it and that would have been right in the middle of the World Cup.“It was the plan we went in with, with the lawyer. It was my lawyer. The lawyers said ‘this is the plan’ so I was like the lawyer knows what he is doing and I go with him because I trust him.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

States Struggle to Close Their Own Gender Pay Gaps

first_imgStates Struggle to Close Their Own Gender Pay GapsStateline News by Teresa WiltzCalifornia has the most stringent equal pay laws in the nation. But among its own workers, the state is still struggling to close the pay gap between men and women.Women who work for the state earn 79 cents for every dollar that men earn, according to a 2014 report by the California Department of Human Resources. That’s a wider gap than that faced by women who work in the private sector or for the federal government in the state.California isn’t alone. While nationwide data is not available, male state workers earn more than their female counterparts in many states, including Idaho, Maryland and Texas.An assessment last year by the online salary data firm PayScale listed the gender pay gap in public administration the fourth-highest among 21 professions and industries across the economy, with women making less than 75 percent of what men make — an average of $16,900 less. The gap in public administration trailed only finance and insurance, professional services and mining.Many cities, including Alexandria, Virginia, New Orleans and Sacramento, have spotted the gap and tried to address it, just as some states have.Late last year, the California Senate gave 10 percent raises to 71 state employees in an effort to address disparities in pay between male and female workers employed in the state Legislature.In January, lawmakers in South Carolina — where women who work for the state earn 87 percent of what men earn — introduced a bill that would guarantee equal pay for equal work and prohibit gender discrimination for private sector and state employees. In Missouri and New York, lawmakers have introduced legislation that would commission studies of wage disparities among state workers.In Minnesota, which has tried for decades to address the issue, Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton announced plans in November to grant state employees up to six weeks’ paid parental leave. The plan applies to all workers, but Edwin Hudson, deputy commissioner of the state’s management and budget office, said because women often lose wages when they take time off to care for children, it could help close the wage gap. Women in Minnesota state government earn 89 percent of men’s wages on average, up from 69 percent in 1976.In general, state jobs around the country are subject to stringent transparency rules, anti-discrimination laws and standardized pay rates. Despite these safeguards, disparities at the state level persist, though they are generally smaller than the pay gap in the private sector.Advocates for women such as Kate Nielsen, state policy analyst for the American Association of University Women (AAUW), said “occupational segregation” is partially to blame.“We need to look for ways to support women in nontraditional jobs and overcome implicit bias to make sure that women are being hired at all levels,” Nielsen said.For women to break into male-dominated fields in the state workforce, states need to step up recruitment efforts and work to ensure that entrance exams are not biased, said Ariane Hegewisch, the program director for employment and earnings at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, which focuses on policies that affect women.And once they’re on the job, women need to be protected from sexual harassment and discrimination, Hegewisch said. “Even if women get into these jobs, they may not decide to stay.”Women typically need more accommodating work arrangements, such as flex-time or telecommuting, to handle family obligations. As a result, Minnesota’s Hudson said, they often gravitate to lower-paying occupations that make it easier to meet the obligations. To close the gender gap among state workers, lawmakers need to pass flex-time legislation, Hudson said. Some jobs dictate strict schedules, but state government has to be creative, he said.“We’re going to have to be more competitive, particularly as the labor market shrinks,” Hudson said.Flurry of LegislationNationwide, women experience a persistent pay gap in the public and private sector, earning 80 percent of what men do. For women of color, the gap is even larger. At the current rate of wage growth, the AAUW projects that women will not reach pay equity with men until 2152.In the absence of legislation by the U.S. Congress, bills to address the gender pay gap have been introduced this year in at least 18 states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.Typically, equal pay legislation covers both private and public sector employees, the AAUW’s Nielsen said. One exception is Louisiana, whose equal pay law protects just public sector employees, who account for 6 percent of the workforce in the state.And it seems to be effective. Women who work in Louisiana’s private sector earn 57 cents for every dollar men earn, while women working for the state earn 78 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make.Louisiana lawmakers introduced legislation this year that would amend the state’s 1950 pay protection law to include private sector employees. It also would require government contractors to verify equal pay practices.In Texas, women and minorities working for the state consistently earn less than white men — a gap that has grown over the past decade, according to data analysis by The Dallas Morning News.And in Maryland, an investigation last year by The Washington Post found that the pay gap among state employees was largest in Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s office, where men hold more senior positions and women earn 68 percent of what men earn.The wage gap among Maryland state workers “tells me that there is still some discrimination out there,” said Maryland state Sen. Susan Lee, a Democrat who sponsored a 2016 law aimed at combating the gender pay gap in the state and proposed a related bill this year. “Any kind of pay gap is not only unequal, it’s unacceptable.”State EffortsIn the 1970s and ’80s, many states made a concerted effort to tackle pay inequities between male and female government workers. They required employers in the public and private sector to pay men and women equal pay for the same work.By 1989, 20 states had implemented programs to boost the pay of lower-paid female government workers. These programs are no longer in place, but a 1994 study by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and the Urban Institute found that the pay adjustments helped close the gap among state workers. Another 23 states had studied their wage gaps by the early ’90s.Today, a Minnesota commission monitors wages for state and local employees and reports on pay inequities to the Legislature every two years. According to a 2016 report by the state, an 11 percent wage gap persists among state workers largely because women are clustered at the lower end of the wage spectrum. The study found that if office, clerical and skilled craft jobs were held equally by men and women, the wage gap would decrease from 11 to 2 percent.California has several steps in place to try to prevent the wage gap between men and women. For example, the state outlines specific job classifications with corresponding pay rates for state workers, according to Joe DeAnda of the California Department of Human Resources. The state’s merit-pay system is also codified, with a specified range of pay raises. Sometimes this can work against managers seeking to remedy pay disparities. But it also means that managers can’t give male employees bigger raises, he said.Nationwide, the pay gap persists for a complex variety of reasons, from the stubbornness of the “pink collar ghetto” to “mommy tracking” to the fact that men typically occupy more senior positions in state government, equal pay advocates say.In short: Men and women continue to do different work — a phenomenon that plays out in state workforces around the country. In California, for example, the 20 percent pay gap persists partly because women work in lower-paying, clerical jobs, while men overwhelmingly work in male-dominated fields such as engineering, state police and fire departments, DeAnda says.“We’ve got more men in the higher-paying job classifications,” DeAnda said. “For the state, our job is to encourage more women to seek those higher-paying jobs.”The size of California’s pay gap has been decreasing, and DeAnda said he expects the state to continue to see improvements. But, he said, “this is a process that will take time, and perhaps require structural changes [i.e. legislation], to ultimately close the gap.”In its 2014 report, California’s Department of Human Resources recommended that state agencies step up efforts to recruit women, increase internships and job-shadowing opportunities for women, increase career development and professional training opportunities, and improve leadership development and succession planning efforts so the next generation of female workers is ready to step into upper-level positions.Closing the pay gap helps women and families to get ahead, said the AAUW’s Nielsen. And when states give female workers “a fair paycheck and a seat at the table, it means more women’s voices are represented, which means that there are more policies that will represent the population,” Nielsen said.To close the gap, states need to first do an audit, looking at pay and gender department by department, job by job, and ferret out what’s causing the inequities, said Emily Martin of the National Women’s Law Center, which advocates for legal and public policies that benefit women and families.“Only then can you close the gap,” Martin said.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Greensky Bluegrass Releases 7th Studio Album ‘All For Money’ [Listen]

first_imgToday, jamgrass quintet Greensky Bluegrass has released their seventh studio album, All For Money, via the band’s own label, Big Blue Zoo Records.The follow up to 2016’s Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, the new twelve-track record was recorded at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC alongside co-producers Dominic John Davis (Jack White’s longtime bassist) and Glenn Brown.From the instant you hit play, you know this Greensky record is a new thing. “Do It Alone” is brought to life with the slight feedback of an instrument being plugged into a hot amp, giving way to an ethereal swirling of energy that Paul Hoffman quickly fills with a slippery, staccato beat, and distorted, dream-like vocals that draws the listener in. Greensky’s effortless slipping back and forth between a whisper and a howl is a fan favorite weapon in their arsenal, and it never fails to enchant. Guitarist Dave Bruzza quickly launches the second track, “Murder Of Crows,” with his nasal vocal counter point to Hoffman’s histrionics to great effect. Aided by dobro wizard Anders Beck‘s first break out moments of the new disc, the track’s frenetic pace gets the blood pumping in a way that only bluegrass can.The confidence that Greensky Bluegrass has in themselves is well earned and on full display with this new release.”What You Need” isn’t overtly braggadocios, just self sure and fearless. Having established their strength, the band allows themselves a moment of introspection with “Ashes” that showcases not only Hoffman’s talent for vulnerable lyrics, but the delicate string work the band is more than capable of.Fans love when Greensky stretches things out onstage, and “Courage For The Road” shows them ready to go that route in the studio as well. Clearly this nine-minute masterpiece, with its epic lyrical narrative and swirling solos, is destined to become a show centerpiece for decades to come. After scaling such heights on early tracks like “Collateral Damage”, “Like Reflections” could be overlooked by dazed listeners if it wasn’t for the amount of sheer heart the band gives each note. “Like Reflections” stands tall as the most entrancing Bruzza lead yet recorded by the band, and his bandmates aid in making the song an unforgettable experience.“Wish I Didn’t Know” evokes other Hoffman tunes with it’s vulnerability and echoing sincere humanity, which perfectly counterpoints the mechanical precision of Michael Arlen Bont‘s deft banjo fretwork. Never a band to shy away from the darkness that lies within us all, Greensky gets scary with “It’s Not Mine Anymore.” The track’s soaring fills from Beck and the distorted, overlapping vocals, brings a nightmare element to the song, which lasts with the listener long after the last note fades. Luckily for the easily scared, Hoffman has a perfectly conceived and presented ode to the feeling we feel when in the presence of the one who lights your life, and the fear we feel when we have to part to wash away the lingering doubt.The album’s title track “All For Money” feeds off the quickened heartbeat that bassist Mike Devol imbues it with, to ask a rather poignant philosophical question, “Why do we do the things we do?” Over its nearly eight-minute run time, the band posits the fact that life is better when we do things for personal growth not financial gain. It’s a remarkably astute observation and one that is clearly born from the success that Greensky has achieved.All For Money is a significant step forward for Greensky Bluegrass. The sheer advancement in every facet of their collective whole, including string work, lyrical thought, vocal presence, and sonic diversity, is astounding and inspiring. Greensky Bluegrass hasn’t just created an album to be proud of, they’ve charted a path to success through hard work, dedication, and inspiration that all bands would do well to follow.Greensky Bluegrass – ‘All For Money’ All For Money Tracklisting: 1.
