How I’d make a passive income with just £100 a month

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Making a worthwhile passive income in retirement by investing just £100 per month may sound unlikely at first glance. After all, a substantial amount of capital is required to obtain even a modest income on a regular basis.However, through regularly buying a diverse range of shares, you could build a surprisingly large nest egg. Over a long period, it could help to pay for your retirement and improve your overall financial prospects.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…Making a passive income from cheap sharesThe recent market crash may have dissuaded some investors from buying shares to make a passive income. However, the track record of the stock market suggests buying cheap shares is a sound means of obtaining relatively high returns in the long run.The world economy has always recovered from recessions to return to growth. Similarly, depressed stock prices have offered buying opportunities for long-term investors ahead of their recovery.As such, now could be the right time to start investing regularly in stocks. In many cases, high-quality businesses with competitive advantages over their peers and solid financial positions are currently trading significantly below their long-term average prices.This may provide investors with the chance to buy them at a price that’s below their intrinsic values. In doing so, you could profit from their likely recovery and build a retirement nest egg that provides an income in older age.Building a diverse portfolio of stocksOf course, not all undervalued stocks will experience recoveries that allow you to make a passive income in retirement. Some companies will inevitably struggle to survive what could be a tough year for the world economy. Other companies may find it difficult to adapt to what seem to be rapidly-changing consumer tastes across many industries.As such, it’s important to diversify your portfolio across a range of stocks and sectors. This limits company-specific risk, which is a reliance on a small number of companies to produce your returns. A more diverse portfolio may also deliver higher long-term returns due to its exposure to a wider range of growth areas.Regular investingBuying cheap shares today may enhance your long-term returns and boost your passive income prospects. However, even the market rate of return could help you to enjoy financial freedom in older age.For example, the stock market has delivered a high single-digit annual total return over recent decades. Assuming the same return on a £100 monthly investment would produce a portfolio valued at around £350,000 over a working life of 40 years. From that, an annual withdrawal of 4% would produce an income of £14,000.Clearly, not every investor has 40 years left until they retire. However, the example serves to show that even obtaining the stock market average return over the long run can lead to a surprisingly large nest egg. Furthermore, by investing in a diverse range of cheap shares, you could beat the market and earn a higher passive income in retirement.

Europe Bishop writes to Convocation following Nice attacks

first_img Rector Washington, DC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit an Event Listing Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Curate Diocese of Nebraska Bishop Pierre Whalon of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe has written this message after a lorry slammed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city of Nice late on July 15, killing at least 84 people. According to reports, no group has so far said it was behind the attack, however prosecutors said the inquiry would be handled by anti-terror investigators.Dear Ones,In 1971, we sold the building of Holy Spirit Church, founded over a hundred years before in Nice, to the French Reformed Church, and amalgamated the congregation with the Church of England Holy Trinity Church. It is now Holy Trinity Anglican-Episcopal Church. As a result, the parish sends a delegate to our annual convention (synod), and the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe gives an annual gift of support. Our 2010 synod took place in Nice, and the closing Sunday Eucharist took place at Holy Trinity.Over the years, I have visited several times as Bishop to confirm and receive people. There are still some Episcopalians, and some are buried in the churchyard. Melinda and I await still to hear that all our friends in Nice are safe. The horror of this 14th of July touches us therefore even more personally.I am happy to report that the Rev. Peter Jackson and parishioners returned home safely last night. This morning will be very hard. They need our prayers as they minister the love of God to their stricken city. And let us pray for the dead and dying, the wounded and all who care for them, the police who had to kill the terrorist and face the horror he had created, and him too. And finally, pray and work for justice, that we might have peace.Prayers I suggest:The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:1, 13-14)A Collect for PeaceO God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.By your Cross, Lord Jesus, you became our only true and lasting hope. We ask that you give rest to those who died in Nice, and that you heal the wounded and bless those who care for them. You comforted Martha and Mary; comfort all who mourn. Give us who remain stout hearts to face the days ahead. And roll down your justice upon us all, that we might have peace. We ask this because in your love you died for us, and rose again, that we might have life with you forever.

Information supplied by Yahoo! helped journalist Shi Tao get 10 years in prison

first_img Organisation News ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts April 27, 2021 Find out more The text of the verdict in the case of journalist Shi Tao – sentenced in April to 10 years in prison for “divulging state secrets abroad” – shows that Yahoo! Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd. provided China’s state security authorities with details that helped to identify and convict him, Reporters Without Borders said today. September 6, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Information supplied by Yahoo! helped journalist Shi Tao get 10 years in prison June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific The text of the verdict in the case of journalist Shi Tao – sentenced in April to 10 years in prison for “divulging state secrets abroad” – shows that Yahoo! Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd. provided China’s state security authorities with details that helped to identify and convict him, Reporters Without Borders said today.“We already knew that Yahoo! collaborates enthusiastically with the Chinese regime in questions of censorship, and now we know it is a Chinese police informant as well,” the press freedom organisation said.“Yahoo! obviously complied with requests from the Chinese authorities to furnish information regarding an IP address that linked Shi Tao to materials posted online, and the company will yet again simply state that they just conform to the laws of the countries in which they operate,” the organisation said. “But does the fact that this corporation operates under Chinese law free it from all ethical considerations? How far will it go to please Beijing?”Reporters Without Borders added: “Information supplied by Yahoo! led to the conviction of a good journalist who has paid dearly for trying to get the news out. It is one thing to turn a blind eye to the Chinese government’s abuses and it is quite another thing to collaborate.”Translated into English by the Dui Hua Foundation (which works to document the cases of Chinese political prisoners), the verdict reveals that Yahoo! Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd. provided the Chinese investigating organs with detailed information that apparently enabled them to link Shi’s personal e-mail account ([email protected]) and the specific message containing information treated as a “state secret” to the IP address of his computer.Yahoo ! Holdings (Hong Kong) is subject to Hong Kong legislation, which does not spell out the responsibilities in this kind of situation of companies that provide e-mail services. Nonetheless, it is reportedly customary for e-mail service and Internet access providers to transmit information to the police about their clients when shown a court order.Tests carried out by Reporters Without Borders seem to indicate that the servers used for the Yahoo.com.cn e-mail service, from which the information about Shi was extracted, are located on the Chinese mainland.Shi TaoAged 37, Shi worked for the daily Dangdai Shang Bao (Contemporary Business News). He was convicted on 30 April of sending foreign-based websites the text of an internal message which the authorities had sent to his newspaper warning journalists of the dangers of social destabilisation and risks resulting from the return of certain dissidents on the 15th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Chinese state security insisted during the trial that the message was “Jue Mi” (top secret). Shi admitted sending it out by e-mail but disputed that it was a secret document. He is still being held in a prison in Changsha to which he was sent after his arrest in the northeastern city of Taiyuan on 24 November 2004.Yahoo! and Chinese censorshipFor years Yahoo! has allowed the Chinese version of its search engine to be censored. In 2002, Yahoo! voluntarily signed the “Public Pledge on Self-Discipline for the China Internet Industry”, agreeing to abide by PRC censorship regulations. Searches deemed sensitive by the Chinese authorities such as “Taiwan independence” in Chinese into the Yahoo! China search engine, retrieve only a limited and approved set of results.A US-based multinational, Yahoo! Appears to be willing to go to any lengths to gain shares of the Chinese market and it is investing heavily in local companies. In 2003, it spent 120 million dollars to buy the search engine 3721.com. More recently Yahoo! acquired a large stake in the Internet giant Alibaba in an operation that reportedly cost nearly a billion dollars. Reporters Without Borders has written several times to Yahoo! executives in an attempt to alert it to the ethical issues raised by its Chinese investments. These letters have so far received no answer.Shi Tao’s verdict Help by sharing this information to go further News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News News Follow the news on China China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures RSF_en March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Inspur teamed up with IT providers, telecommunication companies and other global partners to explore cutting-edge topics such as the establishment of a global, open edge computing ecosystem, and AI and 5G device applications. Edge computing to power multiple scenario applications As global digital transformation continues to ramp up, emerging technologies such as 5G and AI are reshaping social and economic development. The AI application framework of “cloud-edge-end” collaboration and the development of 5G core network applications are accelerating the shift of computing power from the data center to the edge of the network, leading to explosive growth in demand for edge computing and application solutions. Market research firm IDC predicts that by 2025, the number of connected devices will increase to 150 billion globally and by 2023, more than 50 percent of new enterprise infrastructure deployed will be at the edge, up from10 percent in 2020. Inspur has expanded its edge computing portfolio, targeting seven key areas:ICT (Information Communication Technology)ConvergencePan-CDN (Content Delivery Network)Connected vehiclesIndustrial InternetIndustry + AIUrban governanceConnected devices Inspur has developed a portfolio of four products — edge computing micro-data center, edge computing server, portable AI server, and smart computing micro-server to support the unique demands of edge computing power in these different scenarios. Supporting the global telecom market through products designed to accelerate 5G transformation According to the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA), 62 telecom operators have commercialized 5G networks in 32 countries/regions by the first quarter of 2020. The number of 5G subscribers worldwide is expected to reach 1.7 billion in 2025. For 5G mobile devices, computing and storage capabilities rely heavily on the implementation of new ICT technologies at the cloud edge. As operators are facing enormous demands and challenges for network transformation, sophisticated cloud/edge cloud computing is required to deliver multi-scenario and high-quality user experiences. At the same time, telecom data center networks are becoming increasingly complex in the 5G era. Operators need to optimize resource allocation and improve utilization rates to support the operation of diversified applications and services. Armed with deep experience and industry insights, Inspur has developed partnerships with telecom giants across Europe and Asia-Pacific. Leveraging its rich products portfolio, which includes dual-socket, 4-socket servers and storage servers, as well as its strong supply chain and joint development manufacturer (JDM) model, Inspur is committed to helping global telecom operators build IT infrastructure for the 5G era. Inspur delivers customized products that are aligned with operators’ specific needs in the shortest time possible and in a cost-effective way. Spearheading open compute standards for win-win outcomes Driven by the development of 5G and AI, edge computing is being applied to an increasingly wide range of applications.
