Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I’m very much a dividend investor these days, but I frequently caution that the presence of a big yield isn’t always sufficient to make a stock desirable.That’s been hammered home recently as a string of companies have suspended their dividends in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. Although it’s affecting some that I hold myself, I think it’s a wise move to focus on balance sheet strength right now. But if you want the safest income you can find, what dividends should you go for?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…FTSE 100 dividendsJust as we’re only allowed to shop for essentials, investing in companies that provide essentials can help secure more reliable dividends. Prime examples include utilities like Severn Trent (LSE: SVT).Severn Trent’s share price has been reasonably resilient, losing 17% or so since the virus dip started. That’s not great, but it’s a lot better than the FTSE 100’s 26% fall – and the falls of 50% and more that riskier stocks have experienced.Severn Trent’s dividend yield has never been one of the market’s biggest. But the share price fall has pushed the forecast yield up to 4.5% now. It’s certainly not guaranteed, and the firm’s income is not immune from the pandemic threat. But it’s surely a lot more reliable than income from companies offering more discretionary products and services.Network servicesNational Grid (LSE:NG) is perhaps of even more central importance. And it’s also offers one of my favourite long-term income streams. With a fall of 14% in its share price, the market seems to see it as more resilient too. And, interestingly, National Grid shares are actually up over the past 12 months, by 4%, while the FTSE 100 has lost about a quarter of its value.Again, the recent fall has made the dividend yield look a bit more attractive. National Grid has traditionally provided yields a little ahead of the general utility sector level, and right now we’re looking at forecasts for around 5.4%.With operations in North America too, National Grid also offers a bit of international diversity. And that can’t be a bad thing in these restricted times.Looking at Severn Trent and National Grid together, I’m reminded that more reliable dividends like these are not just for crisis times. No, they can always make a solid core for an income portfolio.Long termI also like the approach of seeking companies whose business models are necessarily directed to the long term. That includes AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN), with its multi-year drug development focus. GlaxoSmithKline fits the bill as well, but I’ll just look at one of the two today.The AstraZeneca share price is yet another that appears resistant to the great sell-off, falling a very modest 11.5%. It’s also another that has actually gained over the past year, up 5%. As such, the recent dip hasn’t done a great deal to the forecast dividend yield, though it still stands at a respectable 3.5%.AstraZeneca’s operations could well be hurt by the social distancing aspect of the current lockdown, and it might lose work in non-essential areas of the business. But I really don’t see a great threat to the dividend. The firm’s dividend is already keyed to its years-long earnings and balance-sheet expectations. And, in my view, it’s another example of the kind of long-term dividend we should be seeking. See all posts by Alan Oscroft

The Motley Fool UK has recommended Melrose.

Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. We’ve seen some storming FTSE 100 share price leaps in 2021. But which of the year’s winners still look like buys today, even after their gains? It depends a lot on an individual investor’s strategy. But here are three firmly on my shortlist.BT Group (LSE: BT-A) can’t blame Covid-19 for its recent poor stock market performance. No, the telecoms giant’s share price has been weakening for years. Against the background of the BT share price slide, I can’t even see the 2020 stock market crash. But anyone who bought at the end of 2020 is sitting on a 2021 profit of approximately 40%, so far.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 shares are still down more than 50% over the past five years mind, while the FTSE 100 is up 15%. And the reason seems clear enough. BT’s profits have been sliding, year after year. The company has been hampered with debt and with its longstanding pension fund deficit too. But I reckon I saw signs of change in its 2020 results.BT plans to resume payments in 2021-22, at 7.7p, half the 2019 level. The expected reduction in pension fund repayments, starting in 2024, dropping from £900m to £600m per year, should help with cashflow too. In all, I reckon BT might finally be pulling things around. But any hiccups in debt or cashflow could still bite.Another turnaroundMy next pick, WPP (LSE: WPP), has been turning things around too. The FTSE 100 advertising and PR giant went into a slump after the departure of founder and CEO Martin Sorrell. Over five years, WPP shares have lost around a third of their value. But after a sharp slump in the 2020 crash, the price has been coming back.Over 12 months, WPP has put on more than 40%. And 2021 accounts for a gain of a little over 25%. But where is the business going now? Companies slashed their advertising and media spend during the Covid crisis, and that led to WPP recording a loss in 2020. But as economies reopen, and forecasters predict strong growth, companies need to get back to wooing their potential customers.It’ll be hard to put a valuation on WPP shares until the company is back to sustainable profits. And I could be premature in my expectations on that score. But WPP has been buying back its own shares in 2021, so it’s not just me who thinks they’re cheap.Biggest FTSE 100 winnerThe biggest 2021 rise of my three choices comes from Melrose (LSE: MRO). This investment company acquires underperforming engineering firms and tries to turn them round. During the 2020 stock market crash, we might argue there were plenty of potential targets going cheap. But, at the same time, the prospects for rescuing troubled businesses were also hammered, and Melrose suffered.The Melrose share price has doubled since the start of 2021, which might look like a great performance. But that’s just getting back to where it started before the pandemic. Over two years, the shares are pretty much flat, just a shade ahead of the FTSE 100.The big question now is whether the prospects for Melrose justify a valuation that’s in line with pre-crash levels. That’s where the risk lies. But I’ve always liked the company’s long-term prospects, and that hasn’t changed.

Las autoridades federales, estatales y locales están emitiendo nuevas pautas sobre reuniones presenciales, y la Iglesia debe asumir su liderazgo con una respuesta compasiva y devota. Después de consultar con los obispos y los obispos electos de las diócesis de Georgia, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Misurí y Alabama, he reprogramado las consagraciones previamente planificadas para abril, a fin de que todas las próximas consagraciones tengan lugar no antes del 30 de mayo. El calendario actualizado de consagraciones es:30 de mayo para Georgia (fecha original)30 de mayo para Oklahoma (reprogramada de la fecha original del 18 de abril)6 de junio para Minnesota (fecha original)13 de junio para Misurí (reprogramada de la fecha original del 25 de abril)27 de junio para Alabama (fecha original)Además, cada diócesis está desarrollando planes y contingencias adicionales, con el acuerdo de seguir ciertos principios para equilibrar las preocupaciones por la participación y la salud pública. Estos planes prevén consagraciones que:pueden ser reubicadas en lugares más pequeños, preferiblemente sitios de la Iglesia que, sin embargo, brinden un espacio adecuado para el distanciamiento físico de los participantes y asistentes;minimicen la asistencia presencial y utilicen tecnología de transmisión en vivo;limiten, con flexibilidad, el número de obispos coconsagrantes y presentadores, y aún así satisfagan los requisitos canónicos;prescindan de eventos sociales y,conviertan las sesiones informativas para los medios de prensa y las reuniones del clero en interacciones virtuales con el Obispo PrimadoVivimos con la esperanza de que se produzca un final milagroso para la pandemia del COVID-19. Sin embargo, debemos reconocer la realidad de estos tiempos extraordinarios y las cargas que nos imponen.

Federal, state, and local authorities are issuing new guidelines on in-person gatherings, and the Church must lead with a gracious and faithful response. After consultation with the bishops and bishops-elect of the Dioceses of Georgia, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Missouri, and Alabama, I have rescheduled consecrations previously planned for April, so that all upcoming consecrations take place no earlier than May 30th. The updated schedule of consecrations is:May 30th for Georgia (original date)May 30th for Oklahoma (rescheduled from April 18th)June 6th for Minnesota (original date)June 13th for Missouri (rescheduled from April 25th)June 27th for Alabama (original date)Furthermore, each diocese is developing additional plans and contingencies, with agreement to follow certain principles to balance concerns for participation and public health. These plans envision consecrations that:can be relocated to smaller venues, preferably church settings that nevertheless provide adequate space for appropriate physical distancing of participants and attendees;minimize in-person attendance and utilize live-streaming technology;limit, with flexibility, the number of co-consecrating bishops and presenters, yet still satisfy canonical requirements;forego social events; and,re-imagine media briefings and clergy gatherings as virtual interactions with the Presiding Bishop.We live in hope that a miraculous end to the COVID-19 pandemic will occur. We must, however, recognize the reality of these extraordinary times and the burdens they place upon us. Our plans may need further adjustment as circumstances develop.I ask your prayers for the Church, our suffering world, and all dioceses awaiting consecration of their next bishop.

Follow the news on Dominican Republic Reporters Without Borders is dismayed at the release on bail of Fermín Marcelino Calderon (photo), one of those charged over the 2011 abduction and murder of the journalist Jose Agustin Silvestre, also known as “Gajo”. He was bailed on the orders of Judge Haydeliza Henriquez in the eastern city of San Pedro de Macorís on 29 November. The prosecution has said it will appeal against the decision. “In view of the seriousness of the charges against Fermin Marcelino Calderon in the Silvestre case, his release on bail appears a strange act of clemency,” the press freedom organization said. “What guarantees have been given to ensure the accused will appear at his trial? What reasons prompted Judge Henriquez to take such action? It is the second time that a suspect in the murder of a journalist has been freed while an investigation is in progress. The decision casts doubt over a legal system where freedom can be bought, even in the most serious cases.Besides his alleged involvement in Silvestre’s murder, Marcelino Calderon is also accused of money laundering on behalf of Matias Avelino Castro, suspected to be the man who ordered Silvestre’s murder.

Reporters Without Borders believes that the reform of the criminal code currently under way is very limited, merely reducing the penalties for press offences without decriminalizing them.” There are several worrying examples, such as the defamation suits brought by Senator Felix Bautista against the journalist Juan Taveras Hernandez of the radio station Z-101, the station’s owner Bienvenido Rodriguez and its manager, Willy Rodriguez. The senator is claiming 1.16 million dollars in compensation. A verdict is expected on 15 January 2014. Similarly, the editor of the news site Ciudadoriental.org, Robert Vargas, and one of its journalists, Julio Benzant, are also the subjects of defamation cases brought by the member of Parliament Alfredo Martínez. For their part, the journalists Luis Eduardo “Huchi” Lora of Teleantillas, and Juan Bolivar Diaz of Telesistema have been accused of being traitors to their country by the nationalist group National Sovereignty Defense Network for criticizing the Constitutional Court’s decision to withdraw Dominican citizenship from people of Haitian descent.

It is a loan and is fully repayable to Limerick City and County Council with appropriate security provided by the applicant. The Council has previously used these powers to support initiatives in Limerick city. TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick GreenwayLimerick Post LIMERICK City and County Council have expressed serious concern about the level of misinformation on its measures to attract new bike hire and shuttle bus service to meet the anticipated demand for visitors.This comes with their announcement of a major boost to the local tourism industry, with the announcement that the €8 million redevelopment of the Limerick Greenway is on target for completion by 01 July in time for the summer tourism season.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The massive re-development of the route to the highest of national standards, which follows the old Limerick-Tralee railway line from Rathkeale to Abbeyfeale and on to the Kerry border, will be an important asset as Limerick seeks to attract more tourists and visitors in the years to come.From research and discussions with other Greenways, it was evident that a large number of patrons and, in particular, families, only wish to cycle all or part of a greenway ‘one-way’ and then return to their start point by Shuttle bus.This requires at least one operator of scale to have bike hire and shuttle bus pick up points at multiple locations along the route.Currently, the council says, the Limerick Greenway has a very limited bike hire service and no shuttle bus service.Without a comprehensive bike hire/ shuttle bus service, the Limerick Greenway cannot attract tourists/ day trippers (without bikes) to experience the greenway and businesses along the route will not fully harness the economic benefits arising from the investment to date.The Council have said it has taken a proactive approach in relation to bike hire/ shuttle bus service in order to ensure the Limerick Greenway reaches its potential as quickly as possible.In order to attract an operator of scale to provide bike hire and shuttle bus service, and provide a fair mechanism to determine requests from bike hire companies to operate from Council owned property on the greenway.As part of the terms and conditions of the process, applicants were afforded the opportunity to request from the Council a working capital loan to assist in the set up and provision of this serviceFollowing the assessment of application, EI Travel Group/ Lazy Bike Tours were deemed the successful applicant. Lazy Bike Tours/Bike Hire is an existing operator based in Dublin and is part of EI Travel Group.Following the announcement, Limerick City and County council have said there has been a large amount of comment, mainly on social media, and most of it incorrect, states the council, It is extremely important therefore that the mis-information and ill-informed comments ruin the huge potential that the Limerick Greenway has to transform tourism in Limerick.And wishing to clear up any misconceptions; The announcement does not mean other operators, either incumbent or potential, cannot continue/ enter to offer their service on the Limerick Greenway.
