City workers are showing restraint when it comes to spending their annual bonus

Whilst remaining outwardly bullish about their prospects for 2011 (around 41 per cent of those questioned believe that their company will increase staff numbers this year), it seems that a combination of the new European regulations over bonuses and an on-going climate of austerity have led to a more restrained approach when it comes to their own finances. A recent survey found that City workers spent up to 50 per cent less on overseas purchases in 2010 than in 2009, and found that clients who are based in the City made far fewer transfers (typically used for one off purchases) too. In total the amount transferred was down by some 50 per cent. The figures also demonstrated an increase in property-related transfers, such as mortgage payments and property maintenance.BONUS TRANSACTIONSA large proportion of the transactions which World First undertakes for City workers occur following the receipt of their annual performance related pay. Often this payment is received in a foreign currency and those living in the UK will either want to transfer their US dollar bonus into sterling, for example, or send the money to an overseas account if they are an overseas resident but are working in the UK.With exchange rates continuing to fluctuate wildly on a day to day basis, the amount of money you could potentially end up with is also subject to significant change. MINIMISING RISKMany of our clients have come to us for advice about how to minimise their risk and use our products to plan ahead, so that they know in advance that their money is safe. A smart move in the current climate.Despite the signs that the City is returning to ‘business as usual’, individuals are using their performance related pay to maintain their investments and balance the books. Many of our clients would have bought overseas property during the boom years and are now transferring money to maintain those properties or to pay off mortgages. If our figures are anything to go by it would seem that City workers are clearly responding to the government’s calls to ‘show restraint’. But whatever you are using your annual bonus for this year, with ongoing fluctuations in the currency markets set to continue for the foreseeable future, some careful forward planning would be a sensible idea.

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. Image source: Getty Images Legendary investor Warren Buffett has called Bitcoin a “delusion” and something that “attracts charlatans”. It’s hard to argue with that in light of the huge amounts of cryptocurrency thefts and stories of owners of the virtual currencies running off with the money. Others who’ve criticised cryptocurrencies include JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon who said they were “only fit for drug dealers, murderers and people living in North Korea”.Anyway, you can see that I, like many others, am a cryptocurrency sceptic and always have been, even when the price was soaring in 2017. It’s now far below that peak meaning many ‘investors’ will have lost money speculating.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…A better way to become a multi-millionaireA far better way to become rich is to max out your ISA annually, assuming of course you’re in a financial position to set aside £20,000 a year. That’s equivalent to £1,666.66 per month.If you do this, even without any money in an ISA to start with, and you achieve 8% annual growth, it will take 31 years to make £2m. If you start with a portfolio worth £50,000 the timeframe comes down to 29 years. The key is to set aside as much as you can and ensure your portfolio can grow strongly year after year. Another factor – and this one can be difficult – is to have patience. Investing in Bitcoin shows how many people are just speculators rather than long-term investors. If you invest in the stock market though, the chances of becoming a multi-millionaire are far higher over time.If like many others you can’t fully use your ISA allowance, setting aside a more realistic figure like £600 per month works out at getting to the £2m mark after 40 years, which still isn’t bad. With more growth, it would be even quicker than that.Achieving more than 8% annual growthIt’s possible to achieve an annual growth rate of more than 8%, but many online calculators give the impression this is the maximum rate an investor can expect to achieve. I don’t agree. Although year after year that’s an undeniably good rate of return, it’s possible for an individual investor to do better.The average dividend yield of FTSE 100 shares currently stands at just over 4%, while for the FTSE 250 it’s 3%. Dividends have been shown to play a crucial role in helping investors achieve bigger returns from their investments, so it’s important to reinvest dividends back into buying more shares. The yield will be a key part in achieving growth of more than 8% a year. To be able to do that, it’s important to own dividend-paying shares in the first place. If you earn 4% on your dividend-paying shares one year and reinvest that money in shares, then the next year’s 4% will be paid on the larger amount (as well as on the extra money you will have saved and invested in the meantime). And if the company increases its payout annually, that’s another boost.Although Bitcoin will have made a few individuals very rich, for most it has been a poor investment. I’d much prefer my chances of becoming a multi-millionaire by saving as much as I can into an ISA that is filled with dividend-paying shares.

People’s Power Assemblies: ‘A people’s movement for Black lives’

first_imgStatement issued by the People’s Power Assemblies of New York City on Dallas and the future of our movement, which was reaffirmed after Baton Rouge, La.As #BlackLivesMatter activists, we are always being asked to condemn violence.Let it be clear: We have consistently condemned violence.We have condemned the violence of police brutality that has unapologetically and without punishment robbed Black women, trans people, children and men of their lives.We have condemned the violence of disproportionate militarized policing that has decimated families and communities of color. We have condemned the violence of a criminal legal system that polices, punishes, sentences and criminalizes Black bodies at higher rates.We have condemned the whole of a system for its complicity in housing discrimination, the school-to-prison pipeline, media stereotypes about Black people, political and legal forms of institutionalized racism and the system of unfettered capitalism that has always been dependent on the exploitation of Black lives.We have condemned environmental racism and forms of state neglect that have poisoned the health of our children. We have condemned transphobia, ableism, sexism and homophobia as additional and intersectional systems of oppression that dismantle the lives of the most marginal of Black people.We have condemned fear and we have condemned hate. We have condemned imperialism and war and genocide — processes that have deemed people of color across the globe as disposable and then undesirable as immigrants and migrants.We have condemned this country for its historic, continual and multiple forms of violence that it has waged on Black people … and we will not leave. … This battle is ours to win … and you will be made better for it.We have condemned.We have condemned.We have condemned.And our voices have gone unheard.In the face of our condemnation, we have been told all lives matter, as if our pain, our grief and our anger somehow represent a denunciation of your lives. They do not.In the face of our condemnation, we are told to speak in soft tones, be polite and be nondisruptive. This is about our lives! Our children’s lives. Our lovers’ lives. Our family members’ and friends’ lives. Our Black lives.When we die, politicians do not say “that an attack on Black lives is an attack on all of us.” They do not say that these attacks “undermine our values” as a society. They do not say to the country, let us “show some humanity.”This is how the NYC mayor, Bill de Blasio, responded to the attacks in Dallas. His response to us and our condemnations was to increase the size of the police. We continue on — unheard.Let it be clear: We are a community in a chokehold. We will not condemn any of the forms of action taken by members of our community to release that chokehold. We will condemn the chokehold.Let it be clear: It is you who must condemn. Condemn racism. Condemn this history of racial oppression: its continuation, its persistence.When you say “All lives matter,” mean it! Speak the words: “Black lives matter.” Engage in action to make it so. Or are we not a part of your “all lives” that actually matter?Let it be clear: We do not believe in this system that tells us to wait and have patience. That speaks of incrementalism and reform while we die. That speaks platitudes about violence and peace while we are killed.We believe in a people’s movement for Black lives. All lives will matter when Black lives matter.Let it be clear: We will not be silent. Our movement will not be demolished. Our rage will not subside.#BlackLivesMatterPeople’s Power Assemblies (PPA) organizes to demand jobs, education and health care while fighting against racist police terror, sexism and LGBTQ oppression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Five-state strike hits AT&T

first_imgJune 4 in Wauwatosa, Wis.About 14,000 AT&T phone service technicians and call center workers in five states have walked off the job in an unfair labor practice strike. These members of the Communication Workers in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin began picketing May 31 after the company engaged in an illegal “unfair labor practice” known as “direct dealing.” Bypassing the union’s bargaining committee, AT&T sent emails directly to workers to try to get them to accept a final contract offer.AT&T’s action exposes how companies try to undermine and bust unions. But an advantage for workers in a ULP strike is that it is illegal for companies to fire workers or permanently replace them during the strike. Companies cannot use replacement “scabs,” and striking workers can collect unemployment benefits.The current contract expired in April. The biggest issue is the outsourcing of call center jobs. The company promised to hire thousands of workers with the windfall in profits that came from Trump’s corporate tax break. Instead, thousands of workers have been laid off as call center jobs are outsourced to low-wage countries.After the federal tax bill was passed, AT&T announced it would close its Detroit call center, throwing 100 workers, with 15 years or more seniority, out on the street.Speaking at a May 24 Detroit rally, CWA President Chris Shelton said, “AT&T, are you listening? You’re not getting a deal in District 4 unless it comes along with jobs.” CWA District 4 is headquartered in Cleveland and represents the five-state region currently on strike. “We’re organized and we’re going to fight back. We’re ready to do whatever it takes. No jobs, no deal,” added CWA Local 4004 President Merle Milton. (cwa-union.org, May 24)“Enough is enough,” pronounced George Walls, president of CWA Local 4603 in Milwaukee.

Pasadena Scientists Conduct Experiment in Middle of Oil Spill Exercise Off Coast of Norway

first_imgThree scientists from Pasadena, two of them from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and one from Caltech, were able to run a science experiment in the middle of a North Sea oil clean-up exercise early this month to test the ability of NASA’s Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) to classify the oil in an oil spill.It was an experiment that the three – Cathleen Jones and Ben Holt from Pasadena’s JPL and Brent Minchew from Caltech – have been trying to accomplish during the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon Spill in the Gulf of Mexico but were not able to because of the limitations inherent in an actual oil spill. On June 8 through 11, Norway’s annual Oil on Water exercise provided just the right opportunity.Jones, Holt and Minchew were part of a NASA team that participated for the first time in the North Sea exercise. The exercise has been held annually since the 1980s, weather and wildlife permitting. In these drills, oil is released onto the ocean and then recovered, giving responders experience with existing cleanup techniques and equipment and a chance to test new technologies.In this exercise, the American scientists flew the UAVSAR, a specialized airborne instrument, on NASA’s C-20A piloted research aircraft to monitor a controlled release of oil into the sea, testing the radar’s ability to distinguish between more and less damaging types of oil slicks.The local scientists were invited by Camilla Brekke, associate professor in the Department of Physics and Technology at the University of Tromsø, Norway.“This year was special, because we had our own dedicated science experiment in the middle of the training exercise,” said Brekke.In the 2010 Gulf oil spill, Jones, Holt and Minchew recognized UAVSAR’s potential to classify the oil in an oil slick during their observations. But since they had only estimates of how much oil was released in the disaster and of the rate of flow, they could not fully check UAVSAR’s accuracy.“Radar has long been thought to be useful only for telling where oil is present,” said Jones. “That information is important, but it’s not all that’s needed to direct the response to an oil spill.”The same accident can create both sheens of oil a few hundredths of an inch thick and heavy, sticky emulsions of oil and seawater, depending on factors such as the weather and length of time since the spill.“Thick emulsions hang around in the environment much longer than a sheen does,” Jones explained. “They’re more likely to make it to shore to contaminate coastal and tidal zones and to oil sea animals. If we can identify where that high-environmental-impact oil is, cleanup crews can get the most out of the time and people they have.”Radars “see” an oil spill because of a characteristic that the Greek philosopher Aristotle first wrote about 2,500 years ago: pouring oil on water smooths the surface. To an observer, returning radar signals — called backscatter — from a smooth, oily sea surface look darker than backscatter from a normal sea surface with small, bumpy waves.In the Gulf oil spill, the NASA scientists discovered that the extremely sensitive UAVSAR could also detect another characteristic of oil: compared with seawater, it is a very poor conductor of electricity. Radar waves are reflected well by materials with good electrical conductivity, such as seawater, and not so well by poor conductors like oil. For that reason, the strength of the backscatter from different parts of an oil slick is related to the thickness of the emulsion in each part.The Norwegian exercise released emulsions of differing thicknesses so that the scientists could have a range of conditions to calibrate the UAVSAR data. The experiment also tested the instrument’s ability to distinguish between petroleum and plant-based oil, found in algal blooms.“In the Baltic Sea you will see plenty of these, and they look like oil slicks from [radar on] a satellite,” Brekke said.The Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies runs the Oil on Water exercise to keep its personnel and ships ready to respond to an emergency. This year, Oil on Water was held at the abandoned Frigg Oilfield, about 140 northwest of Stavanger, Norway.
