I’d invest in these 2 FTSE 100 stocks to retire on a rising passive income Image source: Getty Images With the FTSE 100 offering a wide range of income investing opportunities, it is never too late to start building your retirement portfolio.In many cases, large-cap shares can deliver high dividend growth to complement their impressive yields. This could mean that they provide a growing income return in the long run which improves your chances of enjoying financial freedom 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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that could be worth buying today. They may enable you to achieve a growing passive income in retirement – even from a standing start at age 40.WPPAdvertising and PR company WPP (LSE: WPP) may not be considered a dividend stock by many investors. However, it has a dividend yield of 5.8% at the present time. This is partly due to its disappointing share price performance over recent years, as well as its dividend being maintained over the last couple of years despite weaker financial performance.Looking ahead, the company is making changes to its strategy to improve its competitiveness. For example, it is disposing of its non-core agencies and is aiming to use this capital to reduce debt levels. This could reduce the overall risk of the business while it aims to reposition itself as a company that is increasingly focused on the technology sector.With WPP’s dividend payout being covered 1.5 times by net profit, it seems to be highly affordable. The company is forecast to post a rise in its bottom line of over 8% next year, which suggests that its strategy is working well. As such, now could be the right time to buy its shares while they trade on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11.HSBCAnother FTSE 100 share that could offer a growing dividend in the long run is HSBC (LSE: HSBA). It has also experienced a challenging period, with a change in senior management and mixed results causing investors to demand a wide margin of safety in its valuation.This has led to the stock currently having a dividend yield of 6.6%. Since it is covered 1.5 times by net profit, it seems to be highly affordable at its current level. And with HSBC continuing to invest in its growth opportunities, while at the same time aiming to become more efficient, it may be able to pay a rising dividend over the coming years.Clearly, the outcome of the US/China trade war is likely to have a significant impact on the company’s financial performance. However, this risk appears to be priced in, with the bank’s shares currently trading on a P/E ratio of just 11. Therefore, on a risk/reward basis, they seem to be highly appealing for long-term income investors who are seeking to build a growing passive income stream.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares For much of 2018, BP (LSE: BP) shares were trading at above 500p, reaching a high of 603p. But the BP share price stands at just 306p as I write. That’s a loss of almost 50% from 2018’s peak. Shareholders have been getting dividends, yielding more than 6%, but that hardly compensates for such a big fall. And the annual payment was slashed in 2020.The Covid-19 pandemic, leading to an oil price slump, was the immediate cause of BP’s share price collapse. But I’d say that really just brought forward an inevitable problem facing BP in the longer term, the need to drastically cut down on fossil fuel consumption. The company took what was probably an opportune moment in August to reveal its “New Strategy To Deliver Net Zero Ambition“.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…In it, BP detailed its plan for transition towards a post-carbon future. It includes big investment in low-carbon energy, declines in hydrocarbon production, and big cuts in its own emissions, among other steps. Had that been announced in better times, I can’t help feeling it might have given the BP share price a bit of a hammering. But as it happens, I do think it’s held back what might otherwise have been a strong recovery.Modest BP share price recoveryBP shares have regained some value since a low in November. But we’re still looking at a 35% loss since pre-pandemic share price levels. That’s despite oil prices recovering to between $60 and $70 per barrel. And it’s also in contrast to positive first-quarter results released in April.BP reported a profit of $4.7bn, up from just $1.4bn in the previous quarter. And operating cash flow came in at $6.1bn. Net debt was cut to $33.3bn, reaching the company’s target around a year earlier than hoped. And with all that lovely cash flow, BP announced a $500m share buyback to commence in the second quarter. So why has the BP share price not responded better?In the short term, there must be fears of possible further Covid-19 damage around the world. India is reeling under the onslaught of the virus, and any further spread could hit oil prices yet again. But the big spectre hanging over the whole industry is surely the carbon thing.Long-term carbon outlookIf we weren’t facing global climate change and were under no pressure to reduce fossil fuel use, I could see the BP share price already getting back above 500p. But when a company’s key product is one that is under increasing pariah status and customers are doing their best to wean themselves off it, that’s got to hurt its long-term prospects.I see two different BPs here. One is the oil giant, reporting strong business recovery, and generating oodles of cash and handing it back to shareholders. Based on that BP, I’d rate the shares a strong buy right now, expecting them to climb back above 500p before much longer.But the other BP is a future net-zero carbon one. And there’s no telling how profitable that might be. What would be a fair level for a net-zero carbon BP share price? I have no idea, or even any clue how to guess at it. Because of that huge uncertainty, I’m not buying. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Scoreboard displaying England’s Jonny Wilkinson name after he becomes the all-time leading points scorer during the 6 Nations International rugby union match against France at Twickenham Stadium, southwest of London on February 26, 2011. AFP PHOTO / ADRIAN DENNIS (Photo credit should read ADRIAN DENNIS/AFP/Getty Images) Change in scoring system may mean less focus on Jonny and fellow fly-halfsThe usual post-RWC tinkering with the laws has begun, the IRB agreeing to experiment with the point-scoring system, writes Paul Morgan.The IRB have granted permission for South Africa’s Varsity Cup Rugby to adopt a system where conversions will be worth three points and penalties and drop-goals just two.That means four penalties will equal a converted try so the competition – which consists of the FNB Varsity Cup, Varsity Shield, Varsity Young Guns and the Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby Championships – will come under a global spotlight when it starts on 30 January.“Our intention with this trial is to cement a culture of try scoring in the Varsity Cup Rugby properties. After all, rugby is about entertainment, and tries are entertaining,” says Varsity Cup MD Duitser Bosman. “At the same time, the importance of the kicker must always be respected and that’s why we’ve increased the value of the conversion, giving teams something of a ‘bonus’ to aim for.”The first set of laws in 1890 gave the try one point, a drop-goal three and a goal from a mark three. The current system was introduced in 1992 when a try was raised from four to five points. The Varsity Cup has previously trialled the use of white cards and demonstrated some of the IRB’s experimental law variations.South African referees manager André Watson says: “We have a great relationship with the Varsity Cup when it comes to experimenting with good ideas. We’ll brief the coaches and referees in late January and we’ll have to upskill everyone and be aware of the potential pitfalls.“One would think this experiment would lead to more tries, but you’d also imagine that a few more penalties will be conceded on purpose. The exciting part is that we’ll soon see how this works out.” This article appeared in the January 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

The house, located in a condominium in Itu, SP, was designed to meet the needs of a country house, focusing on social and leisure areas, but with a very peculiar organization: living room and kitchen on the upper floor. Four rooms were distributed on the ground floor that connects them internally to a multipurpose room (games and tv), and finally the laundry and dependencies of employees, creating in that set a parallelepiped volume with ceiling height of 2.7m that gently receives and supports the volume transversely opposed of the upper floor, which protrudes in a cantilever covering the garage, which in turn integrates to the ground floor without visual limits.Save this picture!© Paula MonroySave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Paula MonroyAll rooms have been designed to benefit from the solar orientation and the visual fields offered by the privileged location of the construction site, with views that escape to the horizon. This was one of the reasons that led to the organization of the living room, kitchen and main suite on the upper floor, an unusual solution, comments by the architects Andrés Gálvez and Gabriel Reis.Save this picture!© Paula MonroySave this picture!Corte PerspectivadoSave this picture!© Paula MonroyAnother guiding point of the design was the financial goal established by the client.

Taken from an Sept. 9 audio column from prisonradio.org.For months now, the nation has been battered by the ravages of COVID-19 — the coronavirus.With millions of people infected and over 190,000 people now dead, it now turns out that from the very start, the U.S. president knew a great deal about COVID-19.How?China’s leader, Xi Jinping, told him everything in February 2020.For months now, President Trump called the emerging pandemic a “hoax” and heatedly blamed China and its leader — for not informing Americans about the disease.He called it ‘Kung Flu’ — remember?Instead, it burned across the country like wildfire, leaving sickness and death in its wake.Not since the influenza epidemic of 1918 has the nation seen such loss of life.And it’s not over; COVID-19 continues to stalk the land, causing death and destruction all over the world.Sad to say, it ain’t over by a long shot.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

(Credit: Pasadena Police Department)Coroner’s officials have determined that an elderly Pasadena woman who was killed in a seemingly random attack that also left her husband injured as the couple was out for their morning walk in January died as a result of head injuries sustained during the assault.Pui Ng Lee, 80, died at a hospital on Jan. 5 following the attack at about 7:45 a.m. on Dec. 29 at Colorado Boulevard and Arroyo Parkway, according to Pasadena police and Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner officials.After an autopsy and additional forensic testing, an examination determined Lee died from “complications of blunt force head trauma,” coroner’s records show. The death was ruled a homicide.Oscar Villamil, 43 and described as homeless, was arrested in connection with the fatal beating on Jan. 5, the same day Lee died, officials said. He has since pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and elder abuse and was scheduled to appear in Los Angeles County Superior Court for a hearing on May 6.Lee and her husband were walking along a sidewalk when Villamil suddenly began to punch and kick the couple “for unknown reason(s) and without provocation,” police said in a written statement. The woman fell to the ground and struck her head on a concrete sidewalk.Her husband suffered injuries described by police as non-life-threatening.Villamil was taken into custody after a tipster recognized him on a Metro Gold Line train from a wanted flier circulated by authorities, according to police. He was arrested at the Fillmore Station without a struggle.A motive in the killing remained a mystery, but it was not being investigated as a hate crime, Pasadena police Lt. William Grisafe said.“There’s nothing to indicate it was a race-related attack,” he said.The suspect had two pending battery charges at the time of his arrest, as well as previous convictions for battery committed by an inmate on a non-inmate; vandalism; assault of a custody official by “gassing,” a term used to describe assaulting jail staff with bodily fluids; assault; battery on a peace officer; assault with a deadly weapon; annoying or molesting a child; two counts of battery; child endangerment; solicitation to commit a lewd act in public; and DUI, records show.Villamil was being held in lieu of $2 million bail pending legal proceedings.Related:Suspect in Fatal Attack on Elderly Couple in Pasadena Denies ChargesMan Charged With Murder, Elder Abuse In Connection With Fatal Attack on Woman in PasadenaSuspect Arrested in Connection With Random, Fatal Attack on Elderly Couple in Old PasadenaPolice Seek Man in Relation to Attack on Elderly Couple in Old Pasadena Subscribe Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Make a comment STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Your email address will not be published.
