Investing money in FTSE 100 shares after the recent stock market rally could still be a shrewd move. The index continues to trade around 15% down on its record high. Therefore, there appears to be scope for further capital gains after its recent rise.Of course, no gains can ever be taken for granted when it comes to investing money in shares. The stock market can fall heavily – as the 2020 stock market crash showed. It can also decline without any prior warning.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…However, on a long-term view, the FTSE 100 has a long track record of growth. As such, these two shares could be worth buying in a diverse portfolio.FTSE 100 shares to capitalise on a global economic recoveryMany FTSE 100 shares have international operations that could benefit from a global economic recovery. Among them is mining company Rio Tinto. Its financial performance is closely linked to the prospects for the world economy. So, as it’s forecast to return to strong growth in 2021 and 2022 as the end of the pandemic comes more into focus, operating conditions for the mining sector could improve.Despite this prospect, Rio Tinto appears to offer good value for money at the present time. The company has a dividend yield of around 5.5%. This suggests it could offer a margin of safety. Clearly, no dividend is ever guaranteed. Especially from a cyclical industry such as the mining sector.Similarly, the company’s performance could be impacted by unforeseen risks and circumstances that are difficult to accurately predict.However, with a solid balance sheet and major investment programme, the company’s prospects could be relatively bright compared to other FTSE 100 shares. As such, it may offer sound total returns versus the wider index.A growth opportunity in a stock market rallyOther FTSE 100 shares could benefit from a long-term stock market rally. For example, Taylor Wimpey may deliver improving sales and profit growth as a result of a stronger economic performance. It could drive improving consumer confidence that has a positive impact on demand for new homes.Meanwhile, a shortage of supply may have a positive impact on the performance of housebuilders. Furthermore, low interest rates may help to make housing more affordable.Clearly, risks such as affordability concerns and an uncertain economic outlook for the UK could weigh on the sector’s performance in future. Similarly, changes to the government’s Help to Buy scheme and stamp duty may cause Taylor Wimpey’s share price to be relatively volatile in the coming months, and even years.But the company’s price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is around 11. This suggests many of these factors may have already been priced in by investors. And that could mean there’s scope for strong capital gains in the coming years relative to other FTSE 100 shares.last_img read more

Michael Livingston joined religious leaders on Capitol Hill this week for a Faithful Budget Prayer Rally to welcome the “Nuns on the Bus” tour.The prayer rally gathered hundreds of people faith to express moral outrage against the U.S. House of Representatives’ decision to prioritize tax breaks for America’s wealthiest citizens while practically ignoring the needs of people struggling to survive.The “Nuns on the Bus” are Catholic sisters traveling on a nine-state bus tour to highlight the immorality of the U.S. House of Representatives budget. The Sisters boarded the bus in Des Moines, Iowa, on June 17 and made stops in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.This week’s rally, held on July 2, marked the conclusion of their trip in Washington.The touring sisters met with multiple congressional offices to advocate for a faithful budget. They also visited Catholic-sponsored social service agencies that serve people struggling in a harsh economy.Sr. Diane Donahue of the Sisters of Social Service, founder of Esperanza in Los Angeles, was one of many sisters who shared moving testimonies about the bus tour:“On our way to visit Rep. Eric Cantor’s office, we met this remarkable family: Keara Campbell and her parents Tom and Judy,” Donahue said. “Keara has cerebral palsy. She’s 32 years old. She has benefitted and grown up, is supported by, and is supporting all the kinds of programs we’re talking about that are up for cuts. She lives independently. She has incredible courage. She has gone ahead and now she works with parents who have children with autism and helps them understand the complications and challenges of autism. Here she is in her powermobile wheel chair and is just doing a remarkable job. But all of the help, the support, the kinds of things that really make her life possible are on the chopping block. I am not going to stand here and say ‘the Ryan budget is moral.’ It’s not moral! It is immoral.”Led by Sr. Simone Campbell, SSS, Executive Director of NETWORK National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, the “Nuns on the Bus” were joined by fellow Catholic sisters, faith leaders, civil rights leaders, and hundreds of concerned citizens at the D.C. prayer rally.Along with Livingston and Donahue, other religious leaders who helped lead the prayer rally included Sandy Sorenson, Washington Director of Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ, Dr. Sayyid Sayeed, National Director, Islamic Society of North America, and Jim Winkler, General Secretary, General Board of Church and Society, United Methodist Church.Rev. Livingston said of the event, “I deeply appreciate the profound witness the nuns have made to their faith through the ‘Nuns on the Bus’ tour. I only hope many more people of faith can find the courage and emulate the creativity of these faithful sisters in the struggle to stand with the most vulnerable among us.” Press Release Service Rector Bath, NC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Job Listing Rector Smithfield, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 last_img read more

Benson Stanley demolishes Yoann Huget with biggest hit of the year

first_imgWednesday Jan 8, 2014 Benson Stanley demolishes Yoann Huget with biggest hit of the year Benson Stanley made arguably the biggest hit of the new year when he smashed Yoann Huget with a great tackle at the Stade Ernest Wallon on Sunday. Toulouse went on to beat the Top 14 leaders 19-12 as they maintained their excellent home record.Toulouse have won all nine home games this season but have a poor away record, losing all of their seven matches on the road. They are up to fourth on the overall log now, while Clermont remain top with their losing bonus point.“It’s good to beat the leaders Clermont during this period where we weren’t playing very good rugby,” said Toulouse captain Thierry Dusautoir.“That gives us a boost before the visit of Saracens (in the Heineken Cup this coming weekend).”Benson Stanley, who forged a reputation for himself as a big hitter when still playing in New Zealand, made another trademark crunching tackle as he smashed Huget, who in fairness received the ball on a hiding to nothing.Stanley is the smaller of the two players so as with Sam Tuitupou’s hit in the previous post, it was nice to see good tackling technique prevail. It was also good to see no TMO intervention, as has become the norm these days when a dominant tackle is made.You can view more great hits from (and on) Stanley in the Related Posts belowCredit: rencontresaxvADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. IntroductionThis new residence, located on a beautiful wooded riverside site in the Constantia Valley, attempts to establish a close relationship with a relatively unspoilt piece of the natural environment.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYSite and ContextThe site, subdivided off from a larger estate, and originally containing lawns and a tennis court, has a gentle fall to a beautiful stream to the south, which hosts a variety of birds and wildlife. It is entirely surrounded by tall well-established trees. As a result, despite being located on a relatively busy suburban road, the site is visually completely secluded, a ’clearing in the forest’, offering a unique set of opportunities for transparency and continuity with its surroundings.Save this picture!Site PlanIn terms of NEMA legislation, the house was required to be set back 30m from the stream. The site between house and stream was rehabilitated: the tennis court and lawns were removed and replaced with an indigenous garden, accessed by elevated timber boardwalks and flowing continuously into the lush riverbank vegetation.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYBriefThe clients, a couple with grown children, require a 3- bedroom, open plan house for themselves and occasional guests.The brief focused on simplicity of lifestyle, ease of use, the pleasure of well-crafted natural materials and directness of experience of the natural surroundings.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYConceptThe green wall of trees surrounding the site, were seen as the living perimeter of the house, with the roof expressed as a long continuous inclined plane falling with the slope of the site and forming an evocation of tree canopy, over a free-flowing ground plane. The single storey structure hugs the ground plane and is glazed extensively, to establish contact with the outdoors all round. The street edge is protected by a massive concrete wall, which is designed to reflect road noise from the living areas.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYProgram and OrganisationThe house is arranged linearly, parallel to the river on the south and opening up to the sun along its entire length to the north. The living accommodation is positioned closer to Brommersvlei Road to the east, with the bedroom section on the interior of the site. The house pivots around a well-established oak tree, which deforms what could have been an idealized floor plan and establishes the idea of a resurgent nature as the primary element on the site.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYThe single storey structure hugs the ground plane and is glazed extensively, to establish contact with the outdoors all round. The street edge is protected by a massive concrete wall, which is designed to reflect road noise from the living areas.A series of courtyards and patios, each offering a different experience of site and different degrees of sun exposure and wind protection at different times of the year, focus each grouping of accommodation.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe entrance court, a roughly square piazza- sized space, bounded by massive concrete and stone elements, is intended to establish an atmosphere of tranquility and silence as the prevalent mood of the house.The kitchen and dining room open entirely onto a covered braai patio and the lounge is bounded by two courtyards, one planted and one containing a long natural pond.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYThe entire south façade has an extended timber patio, which forms an interface between interior floor-plane and garden.Circulation is structured by two cross-axes, both of which start and terminate in the landscape and which are formed by long wall elements.Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYAll the wall elements of the house are detached from the roof and extend out into the landscape to enclose outdoor space and blur the distinction between inside and outsideSave this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHYProject gallerySee allShow lessSkåpet Mountain Lodges in Soddatjørn / KOKO architectsSelected ProjectsCaoHeJing Innovation Incubator / Schmidt Hammer Lassen ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Wieland Gleich – ARCHIGRAPHY+ 24 Share “COPY” South Africa House in Constantia Valley / Metropolis DesignSave this projectSaveHouse in Constantia Valley / Metropolis Design Architects: Metropolis Design Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794934/house-in-constantia-valley-metropolis-design Clipboard Projects Year:  Photographs “COPY” Houses House in Constantia Valley / Metropolis Design ArchDailylast_img read more

Located on a north-west corner plot in a dense residential area near Seoul, W House is for a couple and two teen sons. While the corner plot allows the house to be more open, it also creates more risk of being exposed to the neighboring houses. With these conditions, the family’s request was very specific; Privacy. The request went as far as to sacrifice basic requirements for a house, such as ventilation and ample sunlight.  Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sergio PirroneAs an architect, we had to come up with an idea to give enough privacy, yet provide the basics. We designed “small courtyards” within the house which act as intermediary spaces between inside and outside; creating a buffer that softens the barrier. Each courtyard is different in how they relate to the outside. Some have side opening, while others have openings on top, and some have both.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneSave this picture!Section DiagramSave this picture!© Sergio PirroneWhile the house may seem monotonous and silent on the outside, bright sunlight and fresh air fill the inside through these courtyards. The large triangular opening faces the forest which provides a good view, sunlight, and ventilation. Other openings from the outside are small and are set back to visually protect the family. Although the house is closed to the outside, there are many openings around the main courtyard. Careful consideration was made to the positioning of the openings in order to give a sense of privacy yet have ample sunlight and well-ventilated spaces.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneProject gallerySee allShow lessRedfern Warehouse / Ian Moore ArchitectsSelected ProjectsKiKi Noodle House / Golucci Interior ArchitectsSelected Projects Share 2018center_img “COPY” Photographs Year:  South Korea ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922849/w-house-ar-architects Clipboard W House / ar-ArchitectsSave this projectSaveW House / ar-Architects Architects: ar-Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officear-ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSouth KoreaPublished on August 13, 2019Cite: “W House / ar-Architects” 13 Aug 2019.

Spain: Firefighters refuse to serve bankers

first_imgIn Alicante, Spain.In Coruña in Galicia, Spain, firefighters refused to play the role of sheriff. They flat out defied orders to cut the chain holding the door closed at an apartment. They remained in solidarity with 85-year-old Aurelia Rey and with the 200 people demonstrating to stop her eviction on Feb. 19.Firefighters from around the country quickly moved to show solidarity with the Coruña firefighters, who face disciplinary action. They joined demonstrations or held news conferences outside their firehouses in Alicante, Córdoba and other cities and towns from Andalusía to Asturias. Their banners read, “We rescue people, not banks.”Some 400,000 families have been forced out of their homes, or face evictions or foreclosures across the Spanish state. The capitalist crisis broke out there first in the housing sector of the economy in 2008. It has spread so that now more than 25 percent of the workforce is officially unemployed, leading to more foreclosures and evictions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Killings, a murder attempt and death threats: A black week for press freedom

first_imgNews News PhilippinesAsia – Pacific RSF_en Organisation Reporters Without Borders appealed to the government to act to combat violence against the media in a week in which a photographer and a radio station boss were murdered, a TV presenter survived a murder attempt, a reporter received death threats and soldiers threatened two other journalists. PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Philippines News November 17, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Killings, a murder attempt and death threats: A black week for press freedom Receive email alerts June 1, 2021 Find out more Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago News to go further Reporters Without Borders has expressed outrage at the murder of a photographer and a radio boss, a murder attempt against a TV presenter and death threats against a reporter, in a black week for press freedom in the Philippines.Ten journalists have been murdered in the country so far this year, making it the world’s most dangerous country for journalists after Iraq.The worldwide press freedom organisation called on President Gloria Arroyo to “take fresh steps to counter violence against the press.””The ongoing impunity calls for more effective investigations. Police investigations are not always effective and the courts are too slow to try the rare murderers of journalists who are arrested”, said the organisation’s general secretary Robert Ménard in the letter to the president.Herson Hinolan, commentator and director of Bombo Radyo in Kalibo, on Panay Island in the centre of the country, died in hospital on 15 November two days after an unidentified gunman opened fire on him leaving him with seven bullet wounds to his body and legs.
