After the worst third-quarter in a decade, shareholder dividends look set to come roaring back. And when it comes to picking the best long-term investments, I’d want to have a portion of my money in an FTSE 100 tracker fund.Why I reckon the FTSE 100 is a decent long-term investmentI see the FTSE 100 as the income index. Indeed, the dividend yield has historically been well above 4% and I reckon that’s a good start for compounding my money for November and beyond.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…The main reasons for the FTSE 100’s big yield is the companies listed within it are the UK’s largest, mature public enterprises. On top of that, many operate in cyclical sectors such as finance, oil, mining, retailing and housebuilding. And cyclical stocks tend to pay big dividends as an economic cycle matures. That’s because the market tends to compress valuations while waiting for the next economic downturn to arrive.Recently, the stock market and dividends from the FTSE 100 have been depressed along with the economic cycle. But I reckon the world economy looks set to recover and grow over the next couple of decades. And that growth will be expressed in the stock market with increasing company dividends and share prices.To me, an FTSE 100 tracker fund would be a decent way to capture some of that capital and income growth. I’d go for an instrument such as Legal & General UK 100 Index. However, I’d be sure to select the accumulation version of the fund rather than the income version because it’ll automatically plough back in my dividends. That way, I’ll be on the road to compounding my returns.Strong brands and consistent dividendsToday’s depressed share prices also throw up opportunities in individual-company stocks. My second pick is a stalwart within the FTSE 100 index called Diageo (LSE: DGE). In case you don’t know, the firm owns many of the UK’s much-loved and ubiquitous premium alcoholic drinks brands, such as Bell’s, Smirnoff, Captain Morgan, Bailey’s, Gordon’s, Guinness and many others.The strength of those brands and the way people love them makes for an impressive trading and financial record. Over the past five years, revenue, earnings and cash flow have been rising. However, the coronavirus pandemic dented the progress a little. Nevertheless, Diageo hasn’t missed a beat with paying out shareholder dividends. And City analysts predict a strong bounce-back in earnings for the trading year to June 2022.The stock rebounded immediately after the coronavirus stock market crash. But since then it’s been drifting lower, which means the valuation has become a little better. However, it’s fair to say the well-known attractions of Diageo as an investment mean it rarely sells at bargain levels.Indeed, the stock has looked expensive for as long as I can remember and will probably remain so. And with the share price near 2,560p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for the trading year to June 2022 is just above 20. Meanwhile, the anticipated dividend yield is just over 2.8%. The yield may look modest, but it’s growing. And I reckon a holding in Diageo now will serve me well over the next 20 years as a decent vehicle for compounding my gains. Image source: Getty Images.

Saenz, MALDEF president and general counsel in a prepared statement. “This Census data confidentiality protection pledge provides reassurance to all – including hardworking Census Bureau staff themselves — that powerful forces outside of government are working together to protect data confidentiality and the integrity of Census 2020.”The coalition is working to boost responses among communities that have been historically undercounted by reassuring households that not only are the Census confidentiality protections in law the strongest in the nation, but that the coalition is poised to help enforce them so personal information remains protected from any potential threat of disclosure.“We continue to hear concerns reverberating through communities of color, particularly the Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities, about the confidentiality of their information when filling out the 2020 Census but we are here to provide reassurance,” said John C. Yang, president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC. “For a community that includes undocumented immigrants and individuals in mixed-status households, it is imperative to remind them about the legal protections that will protect their responses to the 2020 Census. We have had to fight for a fair and accurate census before and we will do it again if necessary.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News Community News Herbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Brutally Honest Reasons Why You’re Still SingleHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat Is It That Actually Makes French Women So Admirable?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeauty CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena

(Credit: Max Gerber for Caltech)Diana Kormos Buchwald, the Robert M. Abbey Professor of History, has been elected to the American Philosophical Society along with 35 other new resident and international members. The American Philosophical Society is the oldest learned society in the United States and was founded in 1743 by Benjamin Franklin for the purpose of “promoting useful knowledge.”As a historian of science, Kormos Buchwald has examined the development of new instruments, methods, and theories at the intersection of chemistry and physics during the 19th and early 20th century. Her work also addressed the emergence of new scientific disciplines and their self-representation in textbooks, scientific societies, and university departments. She also serves as the general editor and director of The Einstein Papers Project, which collects, researches, and publishes the writings and correspondence of Albert Einstein.The Einstein Papers Project, established in 1977 at Princeton University, moved to the Caltech campus upon the appointment of Kormos Buchwald as its director in spring 2000. Since then, the editors have published nine volumes of Einstein’s papers that cover his life and work from 1918 to his 50th birthday in 1929. Writings included in these volumes, which include Einstein’s papers, drafts, and correspondence surrounding the foundation of general relativity, also reveal Einstein’s activities in the spheres of international reconciliation among scientists after World War I, human rights, the popularization of modern science as well as the minutiae of administering research programs and seeking funding for talented scientists, engineers, and teachers.During her career, Kormos Buchwald has also been inducted into the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is joined as a new member of the American Philosophical Society this year by Caltech alumnus Daniel Nocera (PhD ’84), professor of energy in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard. Nocera’s research has led to breakthroughs in the development of artificial photosynthesis and solar fuels.More information about the society is online here.

kali9/iStock(RICHMOND, Va.) — Six people were shot, at least one fatally, outside an apartment complex in Virginia’s capital on Tuesday evening, police said.The Richmond Police Department said its officers were dispatched to the scene just after 6:30 p.m. ET where they discovered two women, two teenagers and a child suffering from gunshot wounds. The unknown suspect had fled the scene and remains at large, according to police.All five victims were transported to a local hospital, where one of the women died from her injuries. Two of the victims were hospitalized with life-threatening injuries and the other two had non-life-threatening injuries, police said.Richmond Police Chief Gerald Smith described the scene where shots were fired as a quad surrounded by multiple apartment buildings, across the street from a high school, in the city’s Southside area. Investigators believe the shooter was targeting an apartment unit rather than a person.“It’s just a heinous act that baffles the mind as to why anyone would do this in a quad full of children just out enjoying themselves,” Smith said during a press conference Tuesday night. “They had no regard for the individuals that were out there.”Smith told reporters that one of the victims was a 3-month-old baby who was hospitalized in “serious condition.” A press release issued later by his department didn’t specify the age of the wounded child.Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney described the victims as “innocent bystanders” who were shot “in a single, senseless act of gun violence.”“This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience,” Stoney said in a statement Tuesday night. “My heart aches for our families.”Anyone with information on the deadly shooting is urged to call Detective Gregory Russell with the Richmond Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit at 804-646-7715 or to contact the Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
