It’s never too late to start saving for the future. Here are two FTSE 100 dividend stocks that could help you build a sizable pension nest egg… starting today.International Consolidated Airlines GroupBritish Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) is one of the London market’s greatest success stories.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…Eight years ago, the company was struggling to turn a profit. However, under the stewardship of former pilot Willie Walsh, the group has soared. It is now one of the largest airline holding companies in the world with a market capitalisation of £12.7bn. For 2019, the organisation is on track to report a net profit of £2.3bn.According to aerospace group Airbus, air traffic will grow 4.3% annually between 2019 and 2028, and IAG is well-positioned to grow in line with this market. This suggests the company can continue to produce returns for investors for many decades to come.Right now, shares in the airline group look cheap as well. The stock is dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 6.9, which suggests the shares offer a wide margin of safety at current prices.There’s also a dividend yield of 4.2% for income seekers. As the payout is covered 3.3 times by earnings per share, it looks as if there’s plenty of room for the distribution to grow in line with earnings for the foreseeable future.easyJetA rising number of air travellers should also help low-cost airline easyJet (LSE: EZJ). Recent trading updates show the number of passengers on its planes is still rising and this growth shows no signs of slowing.Total group revenue for the quarter ending 31 December increased by 9.9% to £1.4bn. Meanwhile, total passenger numbers rose 2.8% to 22.2m.Load factor, a measure of how full the company’s planes are, grew by 1.6% to 91.3% despite an increase in capacity (new aircraft) of 1% to 24.3m.These numbers suggest passengers are continuing to flock to easyJet’s offering and the group isn’t struggling to fill the new planes it’s ordering.Management is planning to expand capacity by a further 3% this year. Growth should also receive a boost from the group’s new business, easyJet holidays.Launched last year, the new business will breakeven in September 2020, according to management. easyJet has been able to use its international footprint and scale to offer customers good quality holidays at a low cost.easyJet has come a long way since its IPO in 2000. Considering all of the above, it looks as if the company’s growth will continue for the next two decades as well.A P/E of 15.3 doesn’t look too expensive for this growth stock. Meanwhile, a dividend yield of 3.3% only adds to the appeal. As such, now could be the time to snap up a share in this income and growth champion for the long haul.

Compass (LSE: CPG), the world’s biggest contract caterer, and Whitbread (LSE: WTB), the owner of top UK budget hotel chain Premier Inn, are two FTSE 100 stocks I’ve written about positively during this stock market crash.The news since I last wrote about them has reinforced my view they offer great value as long-term growth stocks. Furthermore, I think one common feature in the news from both companies gives private investors every reason to love them!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…FundraisingsEven if you’ve had only half an eye on corporate news during the coronavirus crisis, you’ll know there’s been a stampede of companies doing equity fundraisings. One particular type of fundraising has dominated. The following announcements from FTSE 100 stock Auto Trader, are typical.“1 April 2020 (7.01am): Proposed placing of new ordinary shares. Auto Trader … announces its intention to conduct a … placing of up to 46,468,300 new ordinary shares … with institutional investors. … The placing will be conducted through an accelerated bookbuilding process which will be launched immediately following this announcement.”“1 April 2020 (12.43pm): Results of placing. A total of 46,468,300 new ordinary shares … have been placed … at a price of 400p per placing share … a discount of 8.9% to the closing share price of 439.1p on 31 March 2020.”Such placings are typically at a discount to the previous day’s closing price, and the shares are invariably offered to institutional investors. Sometimes there’s a parallel subscription for new shares by the directors and senior management. In choosing this type of fundraising, the company gives small retail investors no opportunity to participate.FTSE 100 stocks with a differenceCompass and Whitbread are two FTSE 100 companies whose directors have shown a different mindset. On 19 May, Compass announced a placing and subscription. However, in addition, it announced: “There will be an offer made by the company on the PrimaryBid platform of new ordinary shares … at the placing price … to provide retail investors with an opportunity to participate.”Retail investors who register with PrimaryBid get equal access to new share offers from public companies at the same price as institutional investors. Until recently, PrimaryBid largely handled offers by small companies. These were of somewhat mixed investment quality. However, with blue-chip Compass having now used it, I hope other high-quality firms looking to raise money will follow suit. Compass has walked the walk in demonstrating “Compass values its retail investor base.”Whitbread has shown similar consideration for its retail shareholders. When it announced an equity fundraising on 21 May, it was by way of a rights issue. This gives all a company’s existing shareholders the right (but not obligation) to buy new shares in the company at a discount price.Reasons I’d buy these two FTSE 100 stocksI was bullish on the near-term survivability, and long-term growth prospects, of Compass and Whitbread before their equity fundraisings. I’m even more bullish now. The new funds have provided further balance sheet security. What’s more, they’ll enable both companies to continue to invest through the crisis. This investment should enhance their competitive advantages and consolidate their positions as industry leaders in their markets.That these two companies have also treated their small retail shareholders on a par with big institutional investors is just one more reason why I’d be happy to buy shares in both of them today. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

But its current valuations are tempting me to increase my holdings.City forecasts can of course be blown off course. But today the FTSE 100 housebuilder is predicted to enjoy a 60% earnings rise this fiscal year (to June 2021). This leaves Barratt trading on a bargain-basement forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. Any reading below 1 can suggest that a stock’s being undervalued by the market.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…It’s possible that the tough economic conditions in Britain could weigh on home sales in the short term. This, along with the withdrawal of Stamp Duty, might well cause that profits forecast to miss. I’d still buy this UK housebuilding share as Britain’s insufficient supply of new homes looks set to run and run. I think this could help offset any demand dips Barratt experiences in the near future. And it might deliver meaty shareholder returns over the next decade too.A falling FTSE 100 starI wouldn’t want to invest my hard-earned cash in fellow FTSE 100 member Tesco (LSE: TSCO) though. It’s true that a further shedding of its foreign assets in December will enable it to focus more efficiently on building back its market share in Britain. But there are still significant competitive threats that threaten this UK share’s long-term growth outlook.Asda is the latest major supermarket to threaten Tesco and, more specifically, its dominance of the lucrative online channel. The business this week announced massive restructuring that will see it take on 4,500 staff solely for its Internet operations. Asda hopes it will help bring 1m online orders a week by the end of 2021. Tesco’s fight to keep revenues on an upward path has got that little bit more difficult. And this could heap even more pressure on the retailer’s ultra-thin profit margins.A top UK recovery shareI’d be happier to buy International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) for my ISA. This UK share could be a big winner as Covid-19 restrictions are steadily unwound. As Bank of America recently commented: “IAG appears well placed to gain share on the Transatlantic routes, given capacity cuts from competitors and its planned acquisition of Air Europa”. Airline collapses across Europe will boost the FTSE 100 flyer in the fast-growing low-cost travel segment as well.There’s a couple of important caveats to remember, though. IAG’s balance sheet will come under further pressure if Covid-19 mutations cause travel restrictions to be extended. It’s also possible that the anticipated rebound in consumer spending might end up being a damp squib. Jonathan Haskel, a member of the Bank of England’s rate-setting committee, this week highlighted a survey that suggested almost three-quarters of Brits will hang onto the savings they built up during lockdowns.A decision to limit spending on holidays and other non-essential things would clearly have a significant impact upon IAG. That said, I still think the British Airways owner could prove to be a great long-term investment.

The site located at the heart of Seoul. In the Japanese colonial era, the area was organised as a detached housing district with evenly divided lots. Thus, it was filled up with low-rise detached houses for a long time but is now occupied by multi-family housings and neighbourhood living facilities. The project started based on the detailed requests of the client couple who wanted to build a beautiful house giving life to alleys which still display a strong image as a residential district but are sparsely dotted with office.Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimIt was late fall of 2015 when I visited the original detached house for the first time. The house’s large southern courtyard was covered with the dense leaves of a decades-old persimmon tree, and its terrace on the 2nd floor was draped with a bamboo blind for privacy reasons. While designing a new house after demolishing this house of the 1970’s, I thought the new house using the 4th and 5th floors should contain the languages of a detached house. This new house will be able to enjoy a southwestern view over Namsan Mountain in the distance.Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimAdjoining a 5m-wide road on the north, the narrow rectangular site belongs to a class 2 general residential area allowing for a building coverage ratio of 60% and a floor area ratio of 200%. The proposed building is planned to have neighbourhood living facilities on its 1st and 2nd floors and 4 multi-family housing units on its 3rd to 5th floors.Save this picture!Section 03One neighbourhood living facility positioned on the front side of the 1st floor is designed as a duplex connected with internal stairs. The other facility on the rear side is a small space of 5 pyeong, yet its large windows linked with an outdoor deck and a courtyard relieve its sense of confinement. A terrace is added to a neighbourhood living facility on the 2nd floor, and it enables natural lighting and ventilation while minimising interference to neighbouring houses. Wood louvers on the front and right facades on the 2nd and 3rd floors protect privacy and give warmth to the blue old brick exterior, 2 units with 1.5 rooms on the 3rd floor and 1 studio on the 4th floor are fully furnished with sinks, built-in wardrobes, fridges and washing machines to provide a practical living space.Save this picture!© Jae-Kyeong KimA duplex unit occupying the 4th and 5th floors has a main entrance on the 5th floor and provides a living room, dining, kitchen, children’s room and study with high ceiling along with an attic. The 4th floor is arranged as a private space with a master bedroom, bathroom and laundry. The 5th floor has a terrace which becomes a green lounge connected with the dining room, providing a view over Namsan and the sky. The living room works as a playroom for twin sisters who were born during construction, and it is linked with their room, it is designed as an open space so that the whole space can be seen even from the kitchen on the other side.Save this picture!Section 02What is required most when designing 1 studio, 2 units with 1.5 rooms, 1 residence for the client and 3 neighbourhood living facilities for the site of about 50 pyeong was giving each one of them a separate access to out-door spaces like courtyard or terrace.

After enormous pressure from the Fraternal Order of Police, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby on July 27 dropped the indictments against the remaining three of six police officers who had been charged with the murder of Freddie Gray while he was in police custody. The young African American had been arrested after “making eye contact with the police.”The three other police had earlier been acquitted, not by a jury but by Circuit Judge Barry Williams, who claimed that the prosecuting attorneys had failed to present significant prosecutorial evidence of any misconduct.Mosby faced vociferous criticism from the police for having filed multiple criminal charges against the officers after the medical examiner determined that Gray’s death was a homicide. She had also received death threats before her decision to drop the charges and has now hired bodyguards. This and unrelenting pressure from the FOP are seen as factors in her decision to rescind the charges against the police.Mosby’s decision to halt the prosecutions was called “a miscarriage of justice” by the Rev. Courtly “CD” Witherspoon, president of the Baltimore chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and a leader of the People’s Power Assembly. “It deprived the people of Baltimore of the one opportunity to receive police accountability,” said Witherspoon, who has been a leading community activist protesting police violence and brutality.Witherspoon also criticized the State of the City Address by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, in which she “did not appear as dedicated to ending police brutality as she was in ending ‘Black on Black’ crime.” This phrase has been used to divert from the real problems of the Black community, which faces discrimination, poverty, poor housing and massive unemployment, as well as police crimes.In a joint statement, Andre Powell, who is running for mayor, and Sharon Black, who is running for City Council president, said, “No matter what the decision, the People’s Power Assembly and Workers World Party will continue to fight against police brutality and murder, along with the Baltimore SCLC and Black Lives Matter — in Baltimore and everywhere else in this country where racism rears its ugly head. Along with the police murders of Freddie Gray, Anthony Anderson and other victims, the struggle for justice continues.” Powell and Black are members of Workers World Party. They are running as independents.Freddie Gray’s death is part and parcel of the genocidal actions of police throughout the U.S. and is not an anomaly. Time after time, the police are either not indicted or if indicted, they are acquitted of both murder and brutality — even when those heinous acts are recorded by conscientious witnesses and/or police videos. No small part is played by so-called police “unions” that not only put tremendous pressure on government officials but also have great power and influence in the state apparatus of the capitalist state to act with impunity.Just in recent years, Baltimore has had to pay out millions of dollars to family members for either deaths or acts of brutality by the police against African Americans. The settlement over Freddie Gray’s death alone cost $6.4 million. These settlements are an attempt to use taxpayers’ money to make the problems caused by oppression “go away.”However, as the popular saying goes, “No justice, no peace.” Neither the state apparatus nor the police will stop the Black Lives Matter movement, nor the revolutionary socialist struggle to end the oppressive capitalist system.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
RussiaEurope – Central Asia December 9, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Vkontakte social network targeted by security services Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing News Pictures: Ekho Moskvy, Yuri Timofeyev (RFE/RL), Ridus News ————Journalists and bloggers arrested during Moscow demonstration 2011.12.09 Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s arrests of reporters, photographers andbloggers while covering a street protest in Moscow against the results of the previous day’sparliamentary elections and the irregularities that accompanied the polling. “There was no justification for preventing journalists from covering a political event of thisimportance.” Reporters Without Borders said. “It was their job to cover it. The media should nothave to pay the price of the government’s paranoia. The judicial authorities should immediatelyrelease the journalists and bloggers still in police custody.”Yesterday’s protest by between 5,000 and 10,000 people on Chistye Prudy Boulevard wasauthorized, but the police used force to disperse them when they began to march towards theCentral Electoral Commission’s headquarters. Around 300 demonstrators were arrested, including the leading opposition blogger AlexeyNavalny. Several journalists who were there to cover the protest were also arrested. Theyincluded Ilya Barabanov (The New Times), Yevgeny Ershov (Izvestya), Aleksandr Borzenko(Echo of Moscow), Ilya Vasyunin (Dozhd TV), the blogger and photographer Ilya Varlamov andthe correspondents of the Reuters and Bloomberg news agencies. The police released most of the reporters almost immediately after verifying that they werejournalists. But Alexey Kamensky, the publisher of the magazine Forbes Russia, is still beingheld. Like Navalny, he has been charged with refusing to comply with police instructions and isfacing the possible of 15 days in detention. Forbes Russia editor Grigory Punanov told Reporters Without Borders: “The police refuse to tellus when he may be brought before a judge. We demand his immediate release. As a journalist,he had every right to be at the scene of the demonstration. He did not break any law.” With both the ruling United Russia party and the opposition announcing more demonstrations,the police have been reinforced in Moscow and surrounding areas and special forces have beendeployed on the city’s main thoroughfares.Around 5,000 people have responded to a call on the Russian online social network Vkontakte todemonstrate this evening on Moscow’s Triumfalnaya Square. More disturbances are likely andReporters Without Borders urges the security forces to act with restraint and to respect the rightto news and information.Read our previous press releases on the Russian elections:- 05.12.2011: Political debate disrupted by cyber-attacks and arrests- 30.11.2011: Authorities tighten control of all media in run-up to elections to go further RussiaEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Help by sharing this information May 21, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more News Organisation RSF_en Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption Pavel Durov, the founder and director general of the Russian online social network Vkontakte, was summoned to the Saint Petersburg prosecutor’s office today after a spokesman for Vkontakte said it would not censor the network and would not comply with an order from the Federal Security Service (FSB) to block seven groups calling for demonstrations in the next few days.Most are opposition groups that are protesting against the results of the parliamentary elections. One is a group calling on supporters to defend the ruling party. Vkontakte has more than 5 million users in Russia.“This unreasonable order aims to deprive Internet users of the freedom of expression, opinion and assembly,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities are using prevention of violence as a pretext for reinforcing control of the Internet. Most of the online groups that the FSB wants to shut down have been clearly urging their members to respect the law and not respond to provocation.”According to one Russian blogger’s estimate, up to 185,000 people are registered with the protests groups.As well trying to suppress online protests directly, the Kremlin is using cyber-warfare. Thousands of Twitter accounts have reportedly been flooded with pro-government messages by hackers using hashtags popular with protesters – such as #navalny (referring to a leading opposition blogger) or #триумфальная (Moscow’s Triumfalnaya Square) – in order to swamp the flow of information on social networks.
