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. The recent stock market crash may have caused many investors to doubt the appeal of dividend stocks. After all, their prices declined significantly in a very short period of time. Looking ahead, further falls in the stock market wouldn’t be a major surprise due to the ongoing risks posed by coronavirus.However, stocks could still be a better long-term investment than gold. They’ve low valuations, high yields and recovery potential. As such, buying a range of dividend stocks today and holding them for the long run could be a sound means of improving your chances of retiring early.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…Gold’s risksWhile dividend stock prices may have come under severe pressure in 2020, the popularity of gold has increased significantly. The precious metal has reached a seven-year high. What’s more, it could experience rising demand among investors should the prospects for the world economy continue to be uncertain over the coming months.However, over the long term, gold may lack total return potential. Its high price could indicate there’s limited scope for capital growth compared to undervalued stocks. Furthermore, investor sentiment is likely to recover from the low levels experienced this year as the outlook for the world economy improves. This has taken place after every previous bear market. So that could mean the appeal of defensive assets such as gold decreases as investors become less risk averse.Stock returnsImproving investor sentiment could lift dividend stock prices over the long run. This could help to improve your retirement prospects through producing a larger nest egg from which to generate a passive income in older age.Of course, a sustained rally in stock prices may seem highly unlikely at present. But in every previous bear market there have been moments where the outlook for equities and the world economy have been exceptionally downbeat.Yet the stock market has produced a recovery from every downturn it’s experienced. Investors who’ve purchased stocks while they’re undervalued during such periods have generally experienced strong returns in the bull markets that have always followed bear markets.The appeal of dividend stocksDividend stocks could be highly attractive for investors who are aiming to build a retirement nest egg over the long run. Reinvesting dividends has historically accounted for a large portion of the stock market’s total returns. Therefore, companies that trade on high yields could appeal to growth investors and not just income-seeking investors.Through purchasing companies that have generous dividend cover (which is calculated by dividing net profit by dividends paid), it’s possible to obtain a relatively robust passive income stream that can be reinvested over the coming years.This strategy may lead to higher returns that ultimately help you to reach your goal of retiring early.

Cholera in Haiti increases

first_imgCholera victims in Haiti await treatment.In October 2010, some of the troops in the United Nation’s military forces introduced cholera to Haiti. Since that time, 800,000 people or 6 percent of the country have gotten the disease, and 8,000 or so have died. There have been 32,000 cases and 480 deaths in the Dominican Republic and 700 cases and three deaths in Cuba.Cuba has had the largest and most significant contingent of medical workers in Haiti following the earthquake, with 1,200 there by 2010. Another 550 Haitian doctors have been trained in Cuba.Some progress has been made over the past three years in reducing both the number of new cases and the death rate from cholera in Haiti, which is the epicenter of this epidemicBut during the first 10 weeks of 2015 there has been a sharp increase in the number of cases of cholera, with more than three times the number of cases during the same period in 2014. This increase worries public health workers in Haiti because it comes right before the rainy season, which starts in May.Haiti Libre, one of the major online Haitian news services, writes that this increase is due to “under-financing” and the resulting “diminution of on-the-ground humanitarian services.” (March 28)The U.N. denied its responsibility for years. Then, in the face of incontrovertible evidence, the U.N. admitted its fault. Nevertheless, with the support of the U.S. and French governments, the U.N. fought off lawsuits in U.S. courts that would have required it to pay for the damages it caused by introducing cholera in Haiti.In Haiti, more than 25 percent of the people live on less than $1 a day. Only 2 percent live on more than $10 a day. Given the dire poverty, when international aid slackens, it is very hard for the Haitians to make up for the gaps. This is true even when they know what should be done.Some 300,000 Haitians are still living in tents, as they have been since the 2010 earthquake, and subsisting on $1 a day. They cannot afford to buy hand soap, toilet paper or a bottle of clean water, which is what they would need to do to prevent cholera.The infrastructure to publicly supply water that is safe to drink doesn’t exist in Haiti, nor does safe disposal and treatment of human wastes.The U.N. admits Haiti’s problems. Together with the Haitian and Dominican governments and regional Latin American and Caribbean councils, the U.N. has put together a so-called plan to fix Haiti’s structural problems, which would remove the threat of cholera.The U.N. has spent billions on Minustah. This is the name of the U.N. military forces that occupy Haiti. Minustah was first installed to give a U.N. cover to a U.S.-led occupation, with support from the French and Canadian governments. Minustah’s main objective is keeping the Haitian people under control.To live in health is a basic human right, which the U.S. and its junior imperialist partners, France and Canada, have denied the Haitian people through the U.N. and Minustah.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Trump and the ruling class, from Davos to DACA to Mueller

first_imgTrump arrives at Davos.His speech at Davos was an attempt to partially get back into the imperialist fold without backing away completely from his super-power, reactionary, nationalist arrogance. It is dawning on the Trump grouping that he has weakened the entire imperialist camp.Jan. 29 ― Donald Trump, the racist, bigoted, authoritarian, right-wing chief executive of U.S. imperialism, who is despised by the workers and oppressed masses of the world, was operating on several fronts last week.Trump went to Davos, Switzerland, to attend a gathering of billionaires and millionaires. The representatives of the European ruling class there played to his ego, flattering him and treating him like an emperor.At the same time that he was hobnobbing around Davos, rubbing shoulders with fellow members of the ruling class, Trump’s two immigration hawk henchmen, Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly and adviser Stephen Miller, were in Washington working on his proposed draconian, punitive immigration bill, which has been denounced by the immigrant movement as a “white supremacist” hostage bill.As Trump deplaned in Davos, he was confronted by charges, corroborated by numerous news sources, that he had illegally tried to have Special Counsel Robert Mueller fired last June. His reply: “Fake news.”Yet the European bankers gave Trump the royal treatment, taking their cue from the Saudi princes who provided a string of musicians to play for him as he entered the conference hall. He was praised by the corporate financiers for his tax cuts and deregulation, which sent their stock prices soaring. Corporate Europe organized a dinner for him with the heads of the top 15 European corporations.Their goal was to placate Trump enough to keep him from launching an attack on the European imperialists, the European Union and NATO ― customary punching bags for his chauvinist, imperialist arrogance. In this, they largely succeeded. Trump stuck to a mild, 15-minute speech drawn up by his handlers. But he was booed when he went off script and denounced the “lying press.”Trump took personal credit for the rise in the stock market and the tax cuts. Undoubtedly the parasitic European bondholders were elated. Trump’s key line was “America is open for business,” aimed at enticing European investors to cash in on low tax rates and minimal regulation.Trump’s Davos speech a sign of weaknessHis speech was a muted attempt to partially get back into the imperialist fold without backing away completely from his super-power, reactionary, nationalist arrogance. He tried to assure the audience that “America first does not mean alone.”It is not that Trump has had some inner conversion from his great-power chauvinism. Rather it is dawning on the Trump camp that by breaking the U.S.-European alliance, he has weakened the entire imperialist camp on both sides of the Atlantic, especially the U.S. side.The Pentagon needs NATO, along with German and French imperialism, in its struggle to subordinate Russia and to complete the conquest of Ukraine. The Pentagon and the State Department need the collaboration of French and British imperialism in Africa, where both former colonial powers have deep roots. And Trump needs the cooperation of European imperialism if he hopes to undermine the Iran nuclear treaty.Neither camp is able to deal with the state-planned, socialist side of China’s economic, commercial and diplomatic expansion. China is steadily progressing with its One Belt One Road project to establish an international network of railways, roads, pipelines and utility grids linking China with Central Asia, West Asia and parts of South Asia.In a concession, Trump even spoke about the possibility of re-engaging with the Trans Pacific Partnership ― a sure sign that the weakness of Washington and the strength of China are beginning to sink in.And as the Trump administration edges closer and closer to war with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and potentially with China and even possibly Russia, it will need the backing or at least the neutrality of European imperialism.Neither imperialist camp ― the U.S. or Europe ― is capable of dealing with the oppressed and the working class of the world without the other. Neither camp is capable of reining in the inter-imperialist antagonisms or of keeping a war from breaking out that could destabilize the capitalist, imperialist system. Trump, of course, may revert quickly to his old arrogance. But, for the moment, that is what accounts for Trump’s “moderate” behavior at Davos.Trump’s DACA proposal: a white-supremacist hostage billBefore going to Davos, Trump announced he had a proposal that would solve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals crisis by giving a path to citizenship for 1.8 million Dreamers and for people eligible to be Dreamers but who had never signed up. These young immigrants would get a so-called path to citizenship over a period of 12 years.However, the Trump proposal, called the Dream Act, also demands $30 billion for his border wall. And it would sharply curtail family reunification immigration, a major component of legal immigration, by excluding the parents of Dreamers from any legalization. It also shuts down the system that each year allows some 55,000 people from all regions of the world to get visas to enter the U.S. on a lottery basis.The White House proposal would limit family sponsorship to spouses and minor children. It would eliminate a number of existing categories, including adult children, both married and unmarried; parents of adult U.S. citizens; and siblings of adult U.S. citizens. Experts have estimated that cutting these categories would reduce the roughly 1 million green cards given out yearly by 25 to 50 percent.A document obtained by CNN goes into more detail: “The framework [of the bill] could allow detaining individuals indefinitely as they await deportation for months and years ― something that has been curtailed as the result of constitutional concerns from courts. The proposals could also vastly expand the definitions of criminal offenses that could subject an individual to deportation.” (Jan. 26)The immigrant rights movement and representatives of the Dreamers have denounced the Trump proposal, refusing to put other immigrants at risk in order to get a bill for themselves.Greisa Martinez Rosas, advocacy director for United We Dream and a potential beneficiary of the Dream Act, commented: “Let’s call this proposal for what it is: a white supremacist ransom note. Trump and Stephen Miller killed DACA and created the crisis that immigrant youth are facing. They have taken immigrant youth hostage, pitting us against our own parents, Black immigrants and our communities in exchange for our dignity.“To Miller and Trump’s white supremacist proposal, immigrant youth say: No.” (, Jan. 25)DACA-recipient Juan Escalante, in a release from America’s Voice, wrote: “It’s no secret that Miller, along with Gen. John ‘Adult in the Room’ Kelly, has been penning some of the most heinous immigration policies coming out of the White House. One might even wonder if Miller and Kelly, not President Donald Trump, are running the government from the sidelines ― exploiting Trump’s short attention span. …“What the White House is selling the American people is nothing but a nativist wish list that would reduce the number of immigrants, especially people of color born in countries that Trump considers ‘shitholes.’” (Jan. 26)Trump, Mueller: bourgeois legality vs. mass struggleInside the Davos meeting hall, Trump was besieged with questions about how he tried to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading a criminal investigation into Trump’s relationship to Russia and his financial connections to the Russian oligarchs. Trump branded the charges as “fake news.”But according to the New York Times of Jan. 26, Trump ordered his attorney, Don McGahn, to fire Mueller last June. McGahn, fearing his own criminal liability, refused the order. The number of witnesses interviewed led even Fox News to confirm the story.The story has been the subject of endless network talk shows, news shows and the capitalist press.The thrust of the discussion is that the attempted firing of Mueller fits in with Trump’s efforts to get FBI head James Comey to go easy on National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. When Comey refused to do so, Trump fired him.The anti-Trump moderates and liberals are going over and over the various possible legal violations, procedural violations, violations of protocol, etc., that Trump has committed.However, they won’t fight him politically for his racism, his misogyny, his militaristic jingoism, his threats of nuclear war, his anti-immigrant chauvinism, his support for voter suppression, etc. When they talk about undermining “our democracy,” they always refer to the Russians allegedly interfering with the elections. But they do not bring up the most serious interference with capitalist democracy: voter suppression.Millions of African Americans, Latinx, Native people and poor whites have been kept from voting because of photo ID laws, redistricting to reduce the weight of the vote in poor neighborhoods and urban areas, shutting down polling stations, disqualifying people with felony convictions, etc.All the bourgeois commentators keep referring back to the resignation of Richard Nixon, who faced impeachment over the Watergate break-in. But so far Trump has given no indication that he would honor bourgeois legality. Furthermore, the House of Representatives is far to the right, and it is the House that would be charged with initiating impeachment proceedings.These commentators and the Democratic Party leadership repeat over and over again that Russia tried to “subvert our democracy.” Whatever Putin did or did not do, the democracy in this country is a very restricted version of capitalist democracy. The capitalist class has access to all the levers of government, communications, and the powers of the state. It is their democracy. What democratic rights exist for the workers and the oppressed within this suffocating capitalist system have been fought for, often with blood, for generations.African Americans have fought for civil rights. Labor unions have fought for workers’ rights. Women have fought equality. So has the LGBTQ community, from the uprising at Stonewall to all the battles that followed. Immigrants have battled against deportations, disabled people have struggled for accessibility, and so on.Yet no matter what rights the workers and oppressed have won under capitalist society, these rights are truncated, narrowly confined and under constant attack. The bosses are the ones who are in a constant struggle to take back the democratic rights the working class and oppressed have won.Class-conscious workers should not fall for this phony pro-war investigation of Russia to get leverage against Trump. What we need is a massive movement to push back the entire right-wing Trump agenda and challenge the cops, ICE and the FBI who are oppressors of the people.We do not benefit when one faction of the ruling class removes another faction if the masses sit idly by.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Home owners to face 100 euro standing charge for water before turning a tap

first_imgNews Reports today claim the standing charge facing householders on their water supply could be up to 33 per cent of their final bill.The Irish Independent says the proposal is contained in Irish Water’s submission to the Commission for Energy Regulation.With the average yearly bill expected to be about 3 hundred euro, it means water supplies could cost people 100 euro before any metering is carried out.Irish Water’s submission to the Commission for Energy Regulation does not include a view as to how much users should be charged for water – but does seek a 33 percent standing charge on the average bill.The charge – which is as low as 10 per cent in other countries – could mean that householders are charged 100 euro before they even turn on the tap.It’s understood the measure is designed to give Irish Water a guaranteed income stream – which they’ll need to borrow money to develop their infrastructure.The scale of the standing charge is likely to provoke some backlash – because it won’t act as an incentive to conserve water and – could be seen as bringing the charge more in line with a standardised tax.

On Thursday, March 29, 2014, the university once again experienced a “first” when the president of the National Exchange Club, Don Wright, officiated the Permanent Organizational Meeting that established the Troy University Collegiate Exchange Club.Wright was assisted in the Permanent Organization Meeting by Dr. William Bailey, VFR National, Joyce Franklin, Regional Vice President; Tommy Holliman, Alabama District President; Bob Arnold, Alabama District President Elect; Dennis Griffith, Alabama Division 10 Director; and McLaney Troy Exchange.The Troy University Collegiate Exchange Club, which was chartered by the Troy Exchange Club, has the distinction as the first public university Collegiate Exchange Club in America.Bailey said he was pleased and honored to be a part of such an historic event.“This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and become friends on this journey,” Bailey said. “Exchange is active in community service, patriotic endeavors and youth services.”Bailey said newly organized Exchange Clubs lend support to the National organization and also have opportunities to individualize their Clubs by doing things their way.The Troy University Collegiate Exchange Club presented 35 members for induction and the Club’s by-laws for acceptance.Wright administered the loyalty oath to the members of the first public university Collegiate Exchange Club.Donna McLaney, Troy Exchange Club president, said not only was Thursday’s induction ceremony historic in that the Troy University Collegiate Exchange Club is the first public university Collegiate Exchange Club, it was also a celebration of the 103rd anniversary of the Exchange Club.“The Exchange Club began on March 27, 1911, in Detroit, Michigan by businessmen who wanted to “exchange” ideas,” McLaney said. “Exchange had its beginning as a luncheon gathering of businessmen known as the Boosters’ Club. Members shared stories and provided business advice to one another and they began to realize what they might accomplish with their collective talents and mutual interests.”McLaney said, so it is with the Troy Exchange Club.“Exchange is committed to community service, youth, Americanism and the prevention of child abuse, which is our national platform,” she said. “The Troy Exchange Club wanted to provide an opportunity for Troy University students to be involved in Exchange and to support all that Exchange stands for.“Troy University is a diverse campus and there are many opportunities for Exchange members to reach out and touch the world, as well as opportunities in the community to work with the elderly and young people.”McLaney said the Troy Exchange Club is honored to be a part of such an historic event as the permanent organization of the first public university Collegiate Exchange Club.“The Troy Exchange Club is also the first in the nation to charter both junior and senior high school Exchange Clubs at the same school,” she said. “The Pike Liberal Arts School Senior Exchange Club has more than 60 members and its Junior Club has 30-plus members. We are excited to have so many young people involved in Exchange. Our hopes are that, as they move on college and the workplace, they will continue to be part of Exchange and all that is does for the communities and nation it serves.”For the past 103 years, the volunteer efforts of Exchange Club members have supported the needs of the country and of local communities. With 700 clubs and over 21,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, Exchange is the country’s oldest service organization operating exclusively in the United States.In the mid-1960s, Exchange adopted its National Programs of Service. Also known as the four “pillars” of Exchange, the National Programs of Service brought into greater focus the most pressing issues of the day and affords local clubs the ability to structure activities according to their specific community. The programs include Americanism, youth programs, community service and Exchange’s national project, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
