Relying on dividend stocks for a passive income in retirement may become an increasingly likely scenario for many people. Low interest rates mean income-producing assets, such as cash and bonds, may be unable to provide a sufficiently high income to cover living costs in older age.Clearly, dividend stocks are riskier than many other mainstream assets. However, through holding some cash for emergencies and identifying high-quality businesses, it may be possible to rely on dividend shares for a passive income in older age.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 risks of holding dividend stocksDividend stocks experience price fluctuations like any other asset. However, capital returns may not be the main priority of retirees. They may be more focused on the level of income received from their portfolio. But this could prove to be unreliable due to the risks faced by the world economy.For example, many income shares have decided to reduce or cancel their dividends. That’s been in response to the uncertain operating conditions they now face. A retiree who holds such companies will now experience a fall in their income in the short run. Although dividends may eventually return among those businesses that have delayed or cancelled them, there are no guarantees this will take place.Therefore, relying on dividend stocks for a passive income is a riskier strategy compared to holding lower-risk assets such as bonds. There’s always a chance dividend cuts will negatively impact on your level of income.Low relative returnsThe problem facing retirees is that dividend stocks offer a far superior income return than other mainstream assets, in most cases. Low interest rates mean cash and investment-grade bonds may provide an insufficient level of income to fulfil your financial requirements.Policymakers may attempt to support the economy’s recovery through a loose monetary policy. And that could mean the prospect of higher interest rates seems limited over the medium term.Building a portfolioTherefore, many retirees may find that they focus their capital on dividend stocks in order to generate a sufficient level of income. Should this be the case, buying a diverse range of businesses could help to lower your risks. It means you’re less reliant on a small number of companies to provide a passive income in older age.Similarly, purchasing companies with defensive business models and sound finances could further strengthen your passive income prospects. They may be better equipped to survive an economic downturn. Therefore, they may also be less likely to reduce their dividend payments.Investors may also wish to hold a sufficient amount of cash to provide them with support should dividend cuts be ahead. This may provide peace of mind. It also provides the financial resources to overcome the prospect of a challenging economic period. One that limits the capacity of income stocks to pay dividends for a period of time. Retirees: can you retire on just dividend stocks?

2013 CopySave this picture!© Kai Nakamura The site is in a shady location where a two-story neighboring house closely stands on the south side, and even the shade and shadow on the path intensify the impression of darkness. Therefore, the design intended to create a space with uniformly distributed light by adjusting the way of letting daylight in, and the way of directing the light. By taking into consideration the space for the residents, the functions for living, and the relationship with the surrounding environment, creation of a diversity and richness in the house was intended by controlling the concept of light.
Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraAlong the edges of the 9.1m square roof, sky lights are made, as if creating an outline, in order to provide sunlight. The roof beams narrow the sunlight, and the slightly angled clapboard interior walls with laminated wood reflect and diffuse the light. As a result, soft and uniformly distributed light is created and surrounds the entire space.
Along the outline of lighting, work spaces such as a kitchen, bathroom, and study are arranged. Private spaces such as bedrooms and storage are allocated into four boxes. The path-like spaces created between them are public spaces. Each box attempts to balance within a large spatial volume. Light coupled with the rhythm of scale raises the possibilities of the living space for the residents.
Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraConsidering each box as a house, the empty spaces in between can be seen as paths or plazas, and remind us of a small town enclosed in light. The empty spaces, which cause shortening or elongating of distances between people, are intermediate spaces for the residents, as well as intermediate spaces that are connected to the outside when the corridor is open, and these are the image of a social structure that includes a variety of individuals.
In terms of a natural component, in which light is softened by small manipulations, and of a social component, in which a town is created in the house, this house turned out to be a courtyard house of light where new values are discovered.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less Area: 266 m² Area: 266 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/433260/light-walls-house-ma-style-architects Clipboard Year: Houses “COPY” Photographs Light Walls House / mA-style Architects Share Year: ArchDaily Japan photographs: Kai NakamuraPhotographs: Kai Nakamura+ 28 Share Architects: mA-style architects Area Area of this architecture project 2013 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/433260/light-walls-house-ma-style-architects Clipboard Light Walls House / mA-style ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLight Walls House / mA-style ArchitectsSave this picture!© Kai NakamuraHouses, Lighting•Toyokawa, Japan CopyAbout this officemA-style architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLightingToyokawaHousesJapanPublished on October 05, 2013Cite: “Light Walls House / mA-style Architects” 05 Oct 2013.

Mumia Abu-JamalAs activists gear up for a Sept. 14 event in New York promoting the struggle to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, the state of Philadelphia has lodged another attack against him. On Aug. 15, this internationally revered political prisoner was illegally sentenced to life imprisonment.Abu-Jamal, a MOVE Organization supporter and a former Black Panther Party member, is known as the “voice of the voiceless” for his continued anti-racist, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist journalism. After being framed and convicted for the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia police officer, Abu-Jamal spent decades in solitary confinement, as a worldwide movement coalesced to free him. In December Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced that the state was no longer seeking a death sentence for Abu-Jamal, and he was released into the general prison population.While the state backed off in the face of continued activism in support of Abu-Jamal – and perhaps in the hope that the movement for his freedom would dissipate — it resumed its assault on Abu-Jamal’s life nine months later. Without any notice to Abu-Jamal or to his lawyers, Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Pamela Dembe sentenced him to life imprisonment without parole on Aug. 15.A press statement from the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC) notes that “all sentences … require a formal proceeding allowing the person to be sentenced the right to be heard and to challenge his sentence.” (Aug. 21) The sentencing is therefore illegal and, as with many of the state’s maneuverings in this decades-long case, in violation of Abu-Jamal’s rights.Dembe had shown her willingness to deny Abu-Jamal justice in the past. In 2001, she refused to hear a legal challenge regarding the racist bias of convicting Judge Albert Sabo, who was overheard by a stenographer saying that he was going to “help them fry the n——-“ before Abu-Jamal’s trial.Abu-Jamal filed a Post-Sentencing Motion on Aug. 23. Rachel Wolkenstein, Abu-Jamal’s attorney, reports: “Mumia’s motion not only attacks his own sentence to ‘slow death row,’ but makes the constitutional challenge to life imprisonment without parole, solitary confinement for death-row inmates and solitary confinement in general. Mumia is fighting with and for the entirety of ‘incarceration nation.’” (Aug. 24 email)In addition to the demand to free Abu-Jamal and all U.S. political prisoners, the Sept. 14 event will focus on ending mass incarceration and solitary confinement and on closing New York’s infamous Attica prison. Speakers will include ICFFMAJ leader Pam Africa; Michelle Alexander, author of the book “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness”; activist and former political prisoner Angela Davis; attorney Soffiyah Elijah; Jazz Hayden, a community “cop-watch” activist who is currently being framed by the New York Police Department; Marc Lamont Hill, who with Abu-Jamal co-authored the book “The Classroom and the Cell”; and Princeton University Professor Cornel West, who has been active in the campaign against the NYPD’s racist “stop-and-frisk” policies.For more information, tickets and to sign a petition supporting the closing of Attica, visit freemumia.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Another major activity was a Greenpeace forum Aug. 15 that exposed the ties of Duke Energy to the banks and how these entities have funded the DNC.During the week, the coalition officially opened its convergence space at Area 15, a cultural arts space in Charlotte’s NoDa neighborhood, the same location as the Charlotte Solidarity Center.Exciting developments are taking place daily in the lead-up to MOWSS.
