It pays investors a monthly dividend yield, which totals 7.3% per annum at the time of writing. The £107m fund can offer this market-beating level of income as it invests in some of the UK’s top income stocks. BMY Mellon’s investment managers also use derivatives to boost returns and generate additional income.So far, the strategy has been highly lucrative for investors. Since inception, it has produced a total return — including dividends and capital growth — of 6.8% per annum.Due to the unique strategy used by the fund, it is slightly expensive. It charges 1.7% per annum in fees. However, investors can save nearly 50% buying through some fund supermarkets. That substantially increases the attractiveness of the fund.As such, if you are looking for a high-yield champion, BMY Mellon could be worth your research time.Man GLG UK IncomeIf you are interested in income and growth, the Man GLG UK Income Fund could be a better buy.This high-yield fund currently supports a dividend yield of 5.2%. It pays its dividends to shareholders monthly and invests in a basket of UK-based stocks.It does not use derivatives to boost the income level, and that means it charges a slightly lower annual management fee.Man GLG’s managers are on the lookout for companies that have the potential to offer investors a rising dividend income and capital growth at the same time.So far, they’ve achieved this aim. The fund has returned 10.4% per annum over the past decade on a total return basis.These returns have left Man GLG’s peers trailing. Its peer group returns have averaged just 1.5% per annum over the past decade.The combination of income and capital growth this one offers makes it the perfect investment for a Stocks and Shares ISA and the tax benefits these products provide.Santander Enhanced Income PortfolioAnother fund targeting both income and capital growth is the Santander Enhanced Income Portfolio.Its managers say that this product “strikes the balance between an enhanced level of income, without sacrificing the potential for capital growth.“Its returns certainly live up to this promise. The investment fund currently supports a dividend yield of 5%. Investors receive their income every month. Meanwhile, the portfolio is stuffed full of income and growth stocks. Some of the holdings offer little in the way of income, but they’ve provided substantial capital gains for the portfolio.This combination has helped the Santander offering achieve a three-year total annualised return of 7.5%. This is also the cheapest of the three funds profiled here.Santander Enhanced Income charges an annual management fee of just 0.58%. That appears appropriate considering the fund’s long-term total returns and monthly income stream. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Per the telling on American Gold Star Mothers website, the history of Gold Star Mothers goes back to 1917:When the United States entered World War I in 1917, George Vaughn Seibold, 23, volunteered, requesting assignment in aviation. He was sent to Canada where he learned to fly British planes since the United States had neither an air force nor planes. Deployed to England, he was assigned to the British Royal Flying Corps, 148th Aero Squadron. With his squadron, he left for combat duty in France. He corresponded with his family regularly. His mother, Grace Darling Seibold, began to do community service by visiting returning servicemen in the hospitals.One day, the mail from George stopped. Since all aviators were under British control and authority, the United States could not help the Seibold family with any information about their son.Grace continued to visit hospitalized veterans in the Washington area, clinging to the hope that her son might have been injured and returned to the United States without any identification. While working through her sorrow, she helped ease the pain of the many servicemen who returned so war-damaged that they were incapable of ever reaching normalcy.On October 11, 1918, George’s wife in Chicago received a box marked “Effects of deceased Officer 1st Lt. George Vaughn Seibold”. The Seibold’s also received a confirmation of George’s death on November 4th through a family member in Paris. And on Sunday, December 15, 1918, nine days before Christmas Eve, the following obituary appeared in the Washington Star newspaper:“Lieut. G. V. Seibold Killed in Action – Battling Aviator, Recently Cited for Bravery in France, is War Victim. Lieut. George Vaughn Seibold, battling aviator, cited for bravery in action some time ago, lost his life in a fight in the air August 26, last. His father, George G. Seibold… has been officially notified of his son’s death by the War Department.Lieut. Seibold was a member of the 148th U. S. Aero Squadron. He was first reported missing in action, though a number of circumstances led to the fear that he had been killed. Hope was sustained until now, however, by the failure to receive definite word.”George’s body was never identified.Grace, realizing that self-contained grief is self-destructive, devoted her time and efforts to not only working in the hospital but extending the hand of friendship to other mothers whose sons had lost their lives in military service. She organized a group consisting solely of these special mothers, with the purpose of not only comforting each other, but giving loving care to hospitalized veterans confined in government hospitals far from home. The organization was named after the Gold Star that families hung in their windows in honor of the deceased veteran.After years of planning, twenty-five mothers met in Washington, DC on June 4, 1928, to establish the national organization, American Gold Star Mothers, Inc. The success of this organization continues because of the bond of mutual love, sympathy, and support of the many loyal, capable, and patriotic mothers who while sharing their grief and their pride, have channeled their time, efforts and gifts to lessening the pain of others.During the virtual event, Gold Star families, who have lost a loved one during any period of war or hostilities in which the U.S. Armed Forces were engaged, will be recognized. This event will allow members of the community to understand the price that a family of a fallen service member has paid, in the cause of freedom.The 20-minute ceremony will feature over 20 local fallen soldiers.The presenters will include Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings, First Sergeant Daila Espeut-Jones, U.S. Army (Ret.), Chair, Mayor’s Veterans Advisory Council, Command Sergeant Major Tommie Maldonado, U.S. Army (Ret.), Orange County Veterans Service Officer, Paulette Julien, U.S. Navy Veteran, Chaplain, Mayor’s Veterans Advisory Council, and Sergeant Fred Robinson, USMC Veteran, Vice Chair, Mayor’s Veterans Advisory Council.Orange TV will broadcast the virtual ceremony.

This 5,000-square-foot house in Mill Valley was designed as a home for an empty-nester couple. The site was the inspiration and the guiding element for the architecture: vast views of Mt. Tamalpais, intimate connections to groves of redwood trees, and a steep incline. Given its location, stepping up the hillside and squeezed between redwoods, the home is stratified into three levels.The lower floor is built into the hillside, while the upper two are open to daylight and views. Save this picture!Courtesy of CCS ArchitectureThe first floor includes the garage, entry, painting studio, gallery, and guest quarters. The entry is a two-story space with a staircase leading up to the second floor—the main living level–which connects to the outside with views in many directions. This double-height space, the spatial core of the house, has a large bay of windows focused on a grove of redwood trees just 10 feet away. The top floor contains two bedrooms, a home office, and a ramped bridge that leads to anupper yard and pool.

The Kiev-based regime, with full support from U.S. and European Union imperialism, has already murdered hundreds of resisters and civilians in eastern Ukraine. Give and take with passersby was held in Russian and Ukrainian, as some participants in the anti-war action came from that region.

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The big news for Fannie Mae’s fellow GSE,Freddie Mac, in its Q2 earnings report released earlier this week was that it didn’t take a loss for the second quarter. Fannie Mae’s profitability in Q2 was 37 percent less than the same quarter a year ago, but the GSE still reported a net income of $2.9 billion during the quarter (compared with $4.6 billion in Q2 2015) in its Q2 earnings report released Thursday.Still, Fannie Mae’s net income in Q2 nearly tripled over-the-quarter from a $1.1 billion showing in Q1 this year, largely due to lower fair value losses driven by smaller decreases in longer-term interest rates; higher credit-related income attributable primarily to an increase in home prices and a decrease in actual and projected mortgage interest rates, as well as a decrease in foreclosed property expense; and higher net revenues driven primarily by an increase in mortgage prepayments.Fannie Mae’s net worth as of June 30, 2016, was $4.1 billion; the GSE will return $2.9 billion to Treasury in September as part of the preferred purchase stock agreement, bringing the total dividend paid to Treasury up to $151.4 billion through the third quarter of this year. This amount is about $35 billion more than the $116 billion bailout Fannie Mae received from taxpayers in 2008, at which time along with Freddie Mac it was taken into conservatorship by the federal government.“I’m pleased with the underlying fundamentals of our business including revenues and the credit quality of our book remained strong,” said Timothy J. Mayopoulos, president and CEO of Fannie Mae. “Because of these strong fundamentals, we expect to remain profitable on an annual basis for the foreseeable future. As we’ve said in the past, there are factors that we do not control such as changes in interest rates and home prices, and each factors can cause significant volatility in our financial results, and can have a positive or negative effect in any given quarter. Once again, we saw some of that volatility this past quarter. Decreases in longer term interest rates caused us to experience fair value losses on the derivatives that we use to manage risk from interest rate changes. These losses however, were left in the fair value losses we experienced in the first quarter.”Despite the substantial over-the-year decline in net income, Fannie Mae’s Q2 earnings report focused on positives such as the amount of liquidity provided to the mortgage market and Fannie Mae provided approximately $145 billion in mortgage financing enabling families to buy, refinance, or rent homes. Also during Q2, Fannie Mae continued to lay off risk to private capital and reduce taxpayer risk through various credit risk transfer initiatives; through June 30, 2016, transferred a significant portion of the mortgage credit risk on more than $660 billion in unpaid principal balance of mortgage loans.“We had another quarter of solid financial performance,” Mayopoulos said. “We are carrying through on actions to strengthen our company, support the housing market, and bring innovation to the market for the benefit of consumers, lenders, and taxpayers. We remain a steady, continuous source of mortgage financing to ensure broad access to quality rental housing and predictable long-term mortgages, including the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.”Click here to view Fannie Mae’s Q2 2016 earnings report.

Long Beach Police Department(LOS ANGELES) — Just a week before the Fourth of July, police in Southern California busted an illegal dealer with 2 1/2 tons of fireworks.The Long Beach Police Department said they seized about 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks from someone who was planning to sell them in the region.“Know what ILLEGAL fireworks will get you? A ride to our City Jail,” the police department tweeted. They also shared a video of the truck full of the illegal explosives.The Long Beach police tweeted back on June 15 they had seized a comparatively paltry 200 pounds of fireworks, as well.All fireworks are illegal in Los Angeles County.“The County of Los Angeles Fire Code, Title 32, Section 5601.3 states that it is illegal to store, manufacture, sell, use, or handle ALL FORMS of fireworks without a valid permit in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County,” according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.The crime is a misdemeanor, but could be punishable by up to a year in prison or a $50,000 fine if convicted, according to California law.The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission just held its annual fireworks safety demonstration on the National Mall in Washington on Wednesday.“Last year, there were five reports of fireworks-related deaths involving victims ranging from ages 19 to 49,” said CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle on Wednesday. “All of the deaths were associated with re-loadable aerial devices, which can be either be a commercial or professional fireworks.”There were 9,100 emergency room visits in 2018 due to fireworks-related injuries, with 6,200 occurring between June 22 and July 22, according to the CPSC.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
