The State Pension is not enough! I’d invest £500 per month in an ISA to retire in comfort

first_img Enter Your Email Address The new State Pension pays just £175.20 a week. That works out at £9,110.40 a year, barely a third of the full-time national salary.While this is a valuable safety net, it will not give you a comfortable retirement. All it does is cover the basics. If you want to retire in comfort, you have to look beyond the State Pension. That means building savings in your own name.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…This will not simply give you a wealthier retirement. It also gives you the freedom to choose when you retire. This year, the State Pension age rises to 66 for both men and women. It will climb higher still as time passes.If you have saved enough money under your own steam, you can decide when you are ready to stop working. Not the politicians.The State Pension is only the startA great way of building extra wealth for your retirement is to invest in FTSE stocks. These give you capital growth from rising share prices, and income from dividends. In the longer run, history shows shares beat almost every other asset class.Some will be nervous because of recent stock market volatility. That is understandable. The global economy is only just emerging from lockdown. However, this could be an excellent time to buy shares to top up your State Pension, if you plan to hold them for the long run.The stock market crash in March means top FTSE 100 stocks are now trading at far lower valuations than at the start of the year. The index as a whole is down almost 20%. Many solid companies are going cheap.While the volatility may continue, that does not matter so much if you are investing for the long term. You can further reduce the risk by investing a regular monthly sum, rather than making a large one-off payment. That way you actually benefit from volatility. If share prices fall, your monthly payment will pick up more stock at the reduced price.If you could stretch to £500 a month, you would start building wealth quickly. If you invested that every month for 30 years and total returns averaged 7%, including dividends reinvested, you will have an incredible £606,438. That would be a nice supplement to your State Pension.Buy FTSE 100 shares todayThat kind of money could make a massive difference to your retirement. Even if you can only afford, say, £150 a month, you would have £151,610. Again, that would dramatically boost your State Pension income prospects.I would recommend investing in a spread of FTSE 100 shares inside a Stocks and Shares ISA. That way you can take all your returns free of income tax and capital gains tax. It is a hugely generous tax break.If you don’t know where to start, The Motley Fool UK site is full of tips and recommendations for top FTSE 100 stocks. Spread your money between different companies to reduce risks. While some may fall in the short term, in the longer run, building a portfolio of shares offers an attractive supplement to the State Pension.By investing monthly, and keeping your money invested for the long term, you can start looking forward to retirement, whatever happens to the State Pension.

first_img Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA La iglesia de Georgia adopta un ministerio de entierro para los ‘santos inocentes’ In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Tampa, FL Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 El Rdo. Joshua Case (a la izquierda) y el Rdo. Cliff Dawkins conducen en abril el cadáver de un niño a un sitio de entierro en el cementerio Lakeside Memorial Gardens. Foto de Joshua Case.[Episcopal News Service] Cuando el Rdo. Joshua Case y un pequeño grupo de feligreses de la iglesia episcopal de Los Santos Inocentes [Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church] inclinan sus cabezas en oración mientras entierran a una de las víctimas más jóvenes de la violencia en Atlanta, con frecuencia lo hacen solos.En algunos casos, hay miembros de la familia presentes en el entierro. Otras veces, no. Bien se encuentran lejos, no tienen transporte para ir al cementerio, están en la cárcel o el estado les prohíbe asistir.Pero el niño no queda en el olvido. Para este oficio, breve y solemne, Case y los demás se convierten en “la familia enlutada” del niño.Desde abril, Case ha dirigido 16 de estos oficios en el cementerio de Lakeside Memorial Gardens, los cuales representan una pequeña parte de los casi 300 entierros que paga cada año el programa de entierros de indigentes del Condado de Fulton. El número total de muertes de menores en Georgia —varios centenares al año según cifras oficiales— es aún más alarmante, y el drama de esas víctimas ha inspirado a [la iglesia] de los Santos Inocentes a centrar sus empeños comunitarios en las víctimas de la violencia infantil mientras procura vivir a la altura de su misión y de su nombre.Al tiempo que seguía indagando sobre las víctimas más jóvenes de Georgia, Case conoció al Rdo. Cliff Dawkins, el capellán que supervisa los entierros de indigentes del Condado de Fulton. Case se quedó pasmado al enterarse de que los entierros de los niños con frecuencia tenían lugar sin que ningún familiar estuviera presente y sin otros testigos que Dawkins y el personal del cementerio.“Mi primera respuesta fue, ‘no en mi condado’”, dijo Case.Dawkins invitó a Case a comenzar a presidir los oficios de entierro de los niños, y se ha formado un pequeño grupo de la iglesia de los Santos Inocentes para acompañar a Case en esos oficios.Sullivan dijo que los cristianos con frecuencia confunden el llamado a la misión con un llamado a hacer algo. A veces basta simplemente con estar presente con otros, dejando que Dios les muestre algo que antes no han visto.El acto de simplemente estar presente encuentra eco en Mary Marvin Walter, de 69 años, una de los feligreses que han acompañado a Case junto a esas tumbas. Ella dijo que se había ofrecido de voluntaria porque se sentía inconforme con su instinto de juzgar a los que pueden haber causado esas tragedias.“Quería ir más allá de eso, sencillamente ser testigo sin interrogantes”, afirmó.Ahora cuando ese diminuto ataúd es bendecido y bajado cuidadosamente a la tierra, ella siempre resiste la necesidad de preguntar por qué.Las razones no siempre son susceptibles de saberse. A veces Case se entera de algo acerca de las víctimas por los que se encargan de los servicios fúnebres o por los titulares de la prensa, pero otras veces no se dispone de ningún detalle personal.Los Santos Inocentes, fundada en 1872, siempre fue conocida nacionalmente por su escuela, la mayor escuela episcopal del país con 1.400 alumnos. A la luz del éxito de la escuela, la parroquia empezó a debatir hace una década lo qué debía venir después.“En verdad, no habíamos ahondado más en lo que significa ser el pueblo de los Santos Inocentes”, dijo el Rdo. Michael Sullivan, que se convirtió en rector en 2009. “Nuestro nombre nos llama a participar en el mundo de una manera que es esencial para el reino que está presente entre nosotros”. El nombre se refiere al relato bíblico del infanticidio cometido por Herodes el Grande, que ordenó la ejecución de todos los niños menores [de dos años] en la vecindad de Belén para impedir que un recién nacido Rey de los Judíos le arrebatara el trono.Un primer paso que esta iglesia de Georgia dio para responder al llamado de su nombre fue la introducción de una misa de réquiem y una vigilia de oración anuales, en la cual la congregación lee los nombres de todos los niños de Georgia que han muerto debido a la violencia en el último año. Esto comenzó en 2010.“El primer año, creíamos que tendríamos tan sólo unos cuantos nombres”, dijo Sullivan. “Nos quedamos sorprendidos cuando la agencia departamental nos dio una lista de varios centenares de nombres”.En los últimos años, el total que proporcionan las agencias del estado ha llegado a 500. La próxima vigilia será el 6 de noviembre.Conforme a la ley del estado de Georgia, las muertes infantiles se incluyen en el total si las mismas son “súbitas, inesperadas, inexplicables, sospechosas o atribuidas a circunstancias inusuales” y eso puede incluir desde el homicidio a la muerte [accidental] que ocurre al compartir una cama [con un adulto].Las muertes infantiles no son tan sólo un problema de Georgia. En toda la nación unos 1.580 niños murieron por causa de abusos o abandono en 2014, según el Centro para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades. La mayoría de esas víctimas tenían menos de un año de edad. Al margen de esto, los datos más recientes de la agencia sobre violencia de los jóvenes dice que hubo 4.800 víctimas de homicidios con edades entre 10 y 24 años en 2010.“La violencia es una categoría muy amplia”, dijo Ashley Willcott, directora de la Oficina de la Defensa del Niño de Georgia, que supervisa el Departamento de Servicios a Familias y Niños. Una muerte violenta podría tener lugar a manos de un padre adoptivo, o podría ser un suicidio o el resultado de un disparo accidental. “Lo esencial que debemos saber es: ¿podía haberse evitado?”.La iglesia episcopal de los Santos Inocentes dedicó su campanario de los Santos Inocentes el 18 de septiembre. La torre incluye la campana que tenía la iglesia en el siglo XIX así como dos campanas nuevas que le han donado. Foto de la iglesia episcopal de los Santos Inocentes.Willcott tuvo palabras de elogio para iglesias como la de los Santos Inocentes que están cobrando conciencia de la difícil situación de menores vulnerables y que están haciendo que la comunidad y sus congregaciones se comprometan.“Los Santos Inocentes’, para mí, es una de las iglesias… que realmente lleva la delantera en combinar el conocimiento de ‘esto es lo que le está pasando a los niños’ con ¿cuáles son los pasos a seguir?’”.Case fue contratado por la iglesia en 2011 para llevar adelante esos pasos en respuesta a la violencia infantil. Él había estado anteriormente trabajando seis años con estudiantes en escuelas internacionales en Suiza antes de mudarse a la zona de Atlanta para hacer una maestría en teología de la Universidad de Emory. Su papel fundamental en Santos Inocentes es dirigir el equipo que crea iniciativas comunitarias para abordar la violencia hacia los menores.Una de las más recientes iniciativas de Case se llama “Cuidar a los Cuidadores’ [Caring for the Carers] un programa centrado en apoyar a los asistentes sociales de Servicios a Familias y Niños. La ayuda puede conllevar el proporcionar ropa de emergencia para los niños que los activistas sociales sacan de sus casas. O puede significar simplemente sentarse con los activistas y escucharles mientras procesan los traumas que genera su trabajo.Un nuevo campanario de casi 20 metros de alto y un columbario que se terminaron este año son los ejemplos físicos de los nuevos ministerios de la iglesia que, desde hace mucho, se había empeñado en un proyecto capital que incluía renovaciones y una torre. En la medida en que el proyecto evolucionaba, se amplío para incorporar la campana [original] de la iglesia del siglo XIX y dos campanas adicionales que habían donado, creando así un monumento que honra a las jóvenes víctimas de la violencia en Georgia.Cuando se añadió el columbario al proyecto, la iglesia también asumió la responsabilidad de mantener 200 espacios de enterramiento que se ofrecerían gratuitamente a niños que murieran a causa de abuso, negligencia, violencia armada, abandono o que hubieran fallecido mientras estaban bajo custodia del Estado.El columbario fue consagrado en mayo, aunque todavía no se ha sepultado a nadie allí. El campanario fue dedicado el 18 de septiembre y las campanas repican diariamente a mediodía y a las 6:00 PM.Case ve su misión y la misión de la iglesia como el empeño de hacer de Georgia un lugar santo para todos los hijos de Dios. Los niños que asisten a la escuela de la iglesia ya pueden ver a Georgia como un lugar santo, pero “hay una importante población infantil… para la cual Georgia no es un lugar santo en absoluto”, dijo él.El ministerio ha tenido un efecto personal en Case, de 39 años, quien es padre de dos hijos.“Puedo decirte que esto me ha remodelado como padre”, dijo. “Probablemente trato con un poco más de delicadeza a mi bebé de lo que lo hacía antes”.– David Paulsen es un escritor independiente radicado en Milwaukee, Wisconsin, y miembro de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity] en Wauwatosa.

A064 was substituted with three more specific resolutions, all of which have been passed by convention:A218 offers the revised sections of the BOS for use and review in the next triennium.A219 refers specific liturgies in the BOS back to SCLM for revision.A283 adds three “Multicultural Liturgies for Occasional Services,” specifically Las Posadas, the Feast of the Virgen de Guadalupe (Dec. 12) and El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) to the 2018 version of BOS.Bishop Neil Alexander of Atlanta, chair of the bishops’ Committee on Prayer Book, Liturgy and Music, told the bishops on July 11 that there were no major substantive changes in the amended Resolution A218 to the liturgies, but editorial corrections and clarifications to liturgical directions in the rubrics had been made. The committee softened the language “so that someone reading it would not throw the book across the sacristy,” said Alexander, referring to directions that could have been interpreted as “snarky, bordering on offensive.”The recommendation to the House of Bishops was to adopt the resolution as amended.The Rev. Susan Anslow Williams, deputy from Michigan and chair of the deputies’ committee, said in her introduction of Resolution A218 to the House of Deputies on July 13 that the resolution contains texts ready for use from SCLM or the committee. “A crack team reviewed these texts, and any typos will be tagged and corrected.” She asked that these corrections not stand in the way of concurring with the HOB.“SCLM had not had enough time or funding in the last triennium to complete the revision of the entire Book of Occasional Services,” Williams said. In the meantime, a separate resolution had passed, referring the sections not completed back to SCLM for work over the next triennium. The services offered in Resolution A218 will be available for use in a digital format, and the previous printed edition [2003] is still available for use.An example of one of the revisions made by the committee can be found in paragraph 80 of the resolution. In the Service for the Anniversary of a Marriage, the revision changes the language to be inclusive: “Immediately after the Sermon (and the Creed if appointed), the Husband and Wife Couple present themselves before the presider, who stands facing the people.”Most of the comments from the floor of the HOB were editorial corrections and bishops pointing out typos. For example, paragraph 118 of the resolution states, “We who are many in one body, share one break, one cup…” The bishops got a good laugh about that one in particular.Flags also were raised about potential issues with the translation into Spanish. Bishop Lloyd Allen of Honduras said, “I’m sorry if I am going to be a little picky about this: In the copy I have, there is one copy translated into Spanish, but we have to be very careful because a word can mean one thing in one country and another (thing) in another.” He cited paragraph 33 in which “We welcome new people into a new parish” can be translated into Spanish as “We receive…,” which has a very different liturgical meaning.Alexander responded that the Task Force on Translation provided input to the committee throughout the process of revising the text received from the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music. The task force advised that the committee would work to “perfect the English text the best we could” and the task force would translate it into Spanish with consideration for dialect and culture differences.Another point was raised that some titles are not used universally. Not every cathedral has a “dean,” one bishop said – some are provosts and others might be interim deans – but the text refers to “dean” throughout the Seating of a Bishop in a Cathedral service. “These are optional texts in italics that can be freely used, so the committee expected that a cathedral with a provost or interim would make that change as needed,” Alexander responded.Satisfied with the brief discussion, the bishops voted unanimously to adopt A218. The House of Deputies concurred on July 13 with no debate or comments, and the final version of the resolution is here.In addition, Resolution A283, adding three multicultural liturgies to the Book of Occasional Services 2018, passed both houses during the July 13 morning legislative sessions. Deputy Ariana Gonzalez-Bonillas of Arizona stood in favor of the resolution, saying, “As one of the reviewers of this resolution, I am excited.” Gonzalez-Bonillas said she realizes that this is not the last time the church will review multicultural liturgies, but that she loves new beginnings.The Rev. Carlos de la Torre, deputy from Connecticut, was also excited about what he said were the new beginnings that these liturgies bring. However, he cautioned that as the church “thinks about multicultural liturgies, there is such a big raft of different celebrations; this is the reality of Latinx culture and identity. As we move forward, we have to look at the Pan-Latino culture.”When the resolution reached the House of Bishops for concurrence, about an hour after passing the House of Deputies, it was passed with no debate.– Sharon Tillman is a freelance writer for Episcopal News Service.

Thoughts spared for retiring Parisse as cruel luck could intervene yet again

first_imgWednesday Feb 26, 2020 Thoughts spared for retiring Parisse as cruel luck could intervene yet again Sergio Parisse’s chance to bow out of Test rugby in style is once again in jeopardy as the coronavirus is posing a threat to Six Nations fixtures. ADVERTISEMENTThe 142-cap veteran is expected to feature once in this year’s Six Nations, and the final match of the Championship against England in Rome is likely to be that match in front of a home crowd. However, with the Italians’ visit to Ireland in the next round already postponed, it is becoming increasingly likely that the fixture against England a week after will be too, denying the former captain of his farewell. Ireland v Italy rescheduled for 2037, when Sergio Parisse will play his last game at Test level.— Ciarán Ó Raghallaigh (@Ciaran_O) February 26, 2020The 36-year-old was deprived of his Test swansong at the Rugby World Cup, where Italy’s fixture against the All Blacks was canceled due to Typhoon Hagibis. He postponed his retirement in order to leave the game on his own terms, but it now seems another cruel twist is going to rob him of that opportunity. The Toulon No8 is an all-time great of the Six Nations and a titan of Italian rugby, and is worthy of an illustrious send-off given what he has brought to the Azzurri over his 18 year international career. ADVERTISEMENTSergio Parisse is cursed.— Gareth Langley (@IdrisDragon) February 26, 2020The match against England has not yet been cancelled, but with hundreds of cases of the virus already in Italy, a sporting fixture like this could have calamitous consequences. Of course, one player is not bigger than a typhoon or a potential pandemic, but it is nonetheless a bitterly disappointing series of events for Parisse, and it is improbable that another player will experience such roadblocks again. It is also unclear as to whether Parisse will postpone his retirement once again in order to facilitate the send-off that he and the Italian public want, but there is only so long he can wait before he retires from the game completely. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Image credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechMonitoring the quality of freshwater supplies is a global concern, especially in thirsty California, where the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary and its watershed serve as a major freshwater source. Now scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, and the U.S. Geological Survey, Menlo Park and Sacramento, California, have successfully demonstrated how a NASA-developed airborne environmental monitoring instrument can be applied to help water managers monitor water quality not only in San Francisco Bay, but potentially in other inland and coastal water bodies around the world.In a study published in the current issue of the journal Environmental Science & Technology, researchers combined water sample measurements collected by USGS scientists aboard a high-speed boat in northeastern San Francisco Bay with data collected by JPL scientists at the same time onboard a specially instrumented Twin Otter aircraft flying overhead. The plane carried the JPL-developed Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer (PRISM), which measures the amount and wavelength of visible light and near-infrared radiation reflected toward the instrument from the water below. The PRISM data allow researchers to detect the unique spectral signatures of several water constituents typically used as indicators of water quality. When the two data sets were later analyzed and compared in laboratories, the PRISM data closely matched the water quality information collected from the boat.The benefit of PRISM is that it can greatly expand the spatial coverage of traditional boat- and fixed-monitoring, station-based approaches used for water quality monitoring. For example, a single PRISM airborne flight can assess the water quality of much of the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary; similar coverage using a boat would take weeks.For this study, the researchers analyzed turbidity (how cloudy the water is), chlorophyll-a (an indicator of phytoplankton in the water), dissolved organic carbon (a source of undesired disinfection by-products produced during the treatment of drinking water), and sediments suspended in the water. Dissolved organic carbon is also a useful indicator of the amount of dissolved methylmercury, a potent neurotoxin that tends to accumulate in fish and other wildlife in the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary. The experiment demonstrated how a single image from PRISM can instantaneously provide a detailed snapshot of these important water quality indicators over a large and diverse water body.New imaging spectrometers like PRISM can enable accurate detection of water quality indicators that were previously difficult to measure using existing satellite sensors. Scientists hope to apply the PRISM technology to sensors on future Earth-orbiting satellites that can provide continuous global monitoring.“This study successfully demonstrated the potential of remote sensing to monitor water quality indicators and their variability in the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary — one of California’s most important water resources — where wetland restoration, human activities and climate change can impact water quality and ecosystem productivity,” said study lead author Cédric G. Fichot, a JPL postdoctoral researcher. “Remote sensing holds great promise for efficiently collecting water quality information over large areas, at high spatial resolution and with good accuracy.” Fichot led the study through a collaboration between NASA, USGS and the Delta Science Fellows Program.The ecosystems of the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary and its watershed have been profoundly altered by humans over the past 150 years. Water quality monitoring is critical to managing this important water resource and assessing its ecosystem health. USGS has been consistently monitoring water quality in San Francisco Bay for almost 50 years. But vessel-based water quality monitoring programs are time-consuming and labor intensive.The researchers say the successful, accurate detection of water quality indicators by an airborne sensor is important because some of them are particularly difficult to measure in the laboratory due to sampling precision and/or technical costs.“While turbidity has been mapped remotely for years with satellites, this time we were able to estimate the individual components of turbidity: suspended sediments, dissolved organic carbon and chlorophyll-a,” said USGS ecologist and co-author Lisamarie Windham-Myers.“One of the most exciting things about this study was that it demonstrated our ability to take a mile-high view of methylmercury concentrations across a complex mosaic of wetlands and open water,” said USGS microbiologist and co-author Mark Marvin-DiPasquale. “This represents the first imaging for this toxic substance at this resolution and spatial scale.”“Considering the difficulty and elevated costs of measuring methylmercury using samples, this new remote sensing technique represents a major leap forward in our ability to detect hot spots of this contaminant in wetlands,” added Fichot.The concurrent boat/aircraft measurement approach was also able to successfully capture the rapid changes taking place within the estuary, where tides cause water quality to change over timescales of minutes and spatial scales of feet, said USGS study co-author and biogeochemist Brian Bergamaschi. “This approach of using a high-speed boat to map conditions in the water across a broad area as the sensor is flown overhead worked well as a way to relate the laboratory measurements directly to airborne sensor data,” he said. Bergamaschi added the team is now using the technique to calibrate satellite observations to help broaden the view.NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives and safeguard our future. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth’s interconnected natural systems with long-term data records. The agency freely shares this unique knowledge and works with institutions around the world to gain new insights into how our planet is changing.For more information on PRISM, visit http://prism.jpl.nasa.gov/.For more information about NASA’s Earth science activities, visit http://www.nasa.gov/earth.USGS provides science for a changing world.

Dharmadhikari was hearing the plea filed by a mother to seek habeas corpus directions for respondents 1 to 5 to produce the corpus/child Yatharth before the Court. It was alleged that the child is in the illegal detention of respondents 6 to 8.The Background of the CaseThe petitioner/Madhavi/Mother and respondents No. 6 got married on 03/12/2017. The child namely Yatharth was born out of their wedlock on 02/02/2019. The matrimonial dispute between the petitioner (wife) and respondent No. 6 (husband) was going on.Allegedly, the Husband used to harass his wife and he demanded a dowry of Rs. 5 Lakhs from the petitioner/wife/mother of the corpus.Allegedly, some altercation took place between them and then respondent No. 6 had locked the petitioner in a room and took away the minor child Yatharth (15 months old) along with him.On 30/06/2020, when the petitioner requested her husband to hand over the corpus to her, the respondent No. 6/husband beat the petitioner along with her brother and mother and had tied them with rope.In these circumstances, the petitioner was left with no other option, but to file an FIR bearing Crime No. 84/2020 at police station Sirol, District Gwalior.Court’s AnalysisWhile relying on the Judgment of the Apex Court in the case of Capt. Dushyant Somal v. Sushma Somal and another (1981) 2 SCC 277, the High Court concluded that a writ petition for issuance of a writ in nature of Habeas Corpus under article 226 of the Constitution of India in the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case is certainly maintainable.Otherwise also, the Court noted, keeping in view the welfare of the child and other factors, the court was of the opinion that the child has to be in the custody of motherThe Court noted that in similar circumstances, the co-ordinate Bench of the Court at Indore had passed a judgment dated 08/06/2020 in Anushree Goyal vs. State of M.P. & Ors. W.P. No. 7739/2020, wherein, the co-ordinate Bench of the Court had held that the custody of the minor child is to be given to the mother i.e. petitioner and had allowed the said writ petition.The Court observed that the mother and father of the child are well educated. There was nothing adverse brought before the Court that the parents of the petitioner with whom she is living are not capable of maintaining the petitioner as well as the child.In this context, the Court noted,”In the present case the child is aged about 15 months and this Court keeping in view Section 6 of Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, 1956 is of the opinion that the child has to be given in the custody of the mother.”The Court also observed that it was not dealing with the application preferred under Section 4 of Guardians and Wards Act, 1890 and that it was dealing with the Habeas Corpus writ petition.The Court relied on the Judgment of the Apex Court in the case of Sheoli Hati Vs. Somnath Das (2019) 7 SCC 490, wherein the Supreme Court, while deciding the issue relating to custody of a child had held that the welfare of a child is of paramount importance.In view of above, the respondents No. 6 to 8 were directed to handover the custody of the child Yatharth to the present petitioner/mother under the supervision of Assistant Sub Inspector of the concerned police station, so that the transition of the child takes place peacefully and without any untoward incident.However, the respondents No. 6 to 8 were given the liberty to proceed in accordance with law for seeking custody of the child, if so advised.Case Details:Case Title: Madhavi Rathore v. State of M.P. & Ors.Case No.: W.P. No.10370/2020Quorum: Justice S. A.

Little-known activist subject of library talk

first_imgLatest Stories Published 3:00 am Wednesday, February 17, 2016 Sponsored Content Little-known activist subject of library talk The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Email the author By The Penny Hoarder Morgan attended the University of Alabama and was a student of journalism professor, Dr. Clarence Cason, whose published work criticized the Southern way of life. Fearing the ostracism that his work would create, Cason took his life.When Morgan finished college and returned home to Montgomery, she was unable to drive because of disabling anxiety attacks and, therefore, rode the bus.“That’s when she began writing letters to The Montgomery Advertiser about social injustices,” Trawick said. “In 1946, she joined a controversial interracial women’s prayer group and met middle-class, black working women who shared her passion of politics, music and religion.”Trawick said, several years later, Morgan watched a black woman pay her bus fare. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott of December 12, 1957, are synonymous. But, the name Juliette Hampton Morgan has languished in obscurity since long before Montgomery’s famous bus boycott.In 1939, years before the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Morgan was writing letters to the editor of The Montgomery Advertiser opposing the abuses she witnessed on the city’s buses and by the city bus drivers.Juliette Hampton Morgan was the subject of Tuesday’s Brown Bag Lunch at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge.center_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

When the driver stopped, she demanded that he open the back door and let the woman aboard.”Juliette Morgan had launched a one-woman, non-violent protest against the discriminatory practices of Montgomery’s city bus drivers. In the days, that followed, she pulled the emergency cord often and demanded to be let off the bus every time she witnessed abuse.”Morgan continued her fight against social injustices with words and actions. White people boycotted the library where she worked, teenage boys taunted her at work and a cross was burned in front of her house. But nothing silenced her. Some demanded that she be fired from her job at the library but the library trustees continued to support her right of free speech.Morgan lost many friends. Former colleagues and students and even her mother became estranged. On July 15, 1957, she resigned her post at the library. The next morning, her mother found her unconscious in bed with an empty bottle of sleeping pills next to her. She, like her journalism professor, could take no more.In 2005, Morgan was posthumously elected to the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame. The Juliette Hampton Morgan Memorial Library in Montgomery is testimony to her legacy.It was too little, too late, Trawick said.

She attended college, worked for the public library and taught in the public schools.” Book Nook to reopenlast_img read more
