Andy Ross | Saturday, 30th May, 2020 The FTSE 100 has had a great week, rising well above where it was just a few weeks ago. Hopes around treatments for Covid-19 coupled with the lifting of restrictions globally, have fuelled investor optimism. That’s despite the short-term pain likely to be felt by higher unemployment and business failures.FTSE 100 sharesWith share prices still far below where they started the year, it’s not too late for investors to catch further gains. There’s a risk, however, of a second spike of Covid-19, which investors should be wary of. History shows there’s a risk of a double-dip. 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…Nonetheless, for a long-term investor, the FTSE 100 has great companies trading at cheap valuations. In an age of negative interest rates, options for making your money grow are becoming harder to come by. Furthermore, the risk of a double-dip in the short-term is far from certain. Investing in some of the UK’s most established companies could be very profitable. It can be done through a tracker, otherwise known as an ETF. These are cheap and don’t require much research. Or you can take more risk and buy shares in individual companies.Another way to invest in many FTSE 100 companies is through an investment trust, which is run by a professional. This provides access to a larger number of holdings. These can often trade at a discount to their net asset value, so you get the shares for less than they should really be worth.FTSE 100 dividendsThere’s been no lack of news recently about listed companies suspending or cutting their dividends. Shell, for example, massively reduced its dividend for the first time since the Second World War.Depending on the economic recovery, however, there’s potential for dividends to be reintroduced, often from a more sustainable level than they were pre-coronavirus. Or, even without the reintroduction of dividends in the near term, there’s plenty of potential for capital growth from FTSE 100 shares. Many are now on very low price-to-earnings ratios. It’s also worth remembering many companies are still paying a dividend. Some sectors are better than others for keeping dividends, so if income is important then consumer goods companies such as Unilever could make for a good investment as could utilities and supermarkets. Demand for their products isn’t going away, regardless of what happens to the economy.Ultimately, I think FTSE 100 shares at the moment carry some risk but also a lot of potential for upside. This is why I prefer them to gold or bitcoin as an investment and hold a number myself, including Persimmon, National Grid, and Legal & General, to give just three examples.Many FTSE 100 shares now trade on low P/Es, indicating they are cheap. Even looking at the economic data it’s clear governments are doing a lot to keep economies going and that’s helping share prices. This is why I think investing in solid FTSE 100 companies for a long time has the potential to make any investor far richer. Maybe even to make millions.  Forget gold and bitcoin!

Harvey Jones | Wednesday, 21st October, 2020 Personally, I wouldn’t buy cash, gold or Bitcoin right now. I’d buy UK shares because they offer superior income and growth prospects, despite the pandemic.There’s been a lot of hullabaloo about UK companies cutting their dividends this year, and understandably so. However, we also need to make some noise about how many firms are starting to reinstate shareholder payouts.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…You can still get blockbusting income from UK shares, which is why I’d buy them now. By comparison, cash, gold and Bitcoin give you little income, or none at all.I’d buy UK shares nowIt’s now almost impossible to get a decent rate of interest on cash. If you lock your money away for five years with RCI Bank, for example, you’ll get just 1.05% a year in return. Remember, that’s a market leading rate. Most accounts pay much less.By contrast, you can get an income of 5.89% a year from FTSE 100 pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, or 9.27% from Legal & General Group.Many investors may be surprised by how much income they can still get from top UK shares, given that three quarters either cut or suspended shareholder payouts in the second quarter, according to Link Group’s UK Dividend Monitor.Shareholder payouts across 2020 are set to drop by around 40%, but the good news is they should rise around 15% next year. In 2021, investors can still expect income of up to 3.6% from UK shares. If you concentrate your efforts and buy the most generous dividend payers, you could get a lot more than that.Top UK shares will always beat gold and Bitcoin for income, because neither pays any income at all. Instead, you are wholly reliant on price growth to make money.The gold price has dipped after busting through its all-time high of $2,000 an ounce in August. Investors who got sucked in at the top will be hurting. I’d be wary of buying gold today, because I think the price could fall once the post-pandemic recovery kicks in.Cash, gold and Bitcoin don’t tempt meBitcoin is on a roll. Its price has just hit around $12,250. I’d urge caution, though. The time to buy the cryptocurrency is when the price is down, rather than up. That’s if you want to buy at all. It’s too volatile for me.Personally, I’m focusing my efforts on buying UK shares right now. There are just too many unmissable bargains. History shows the best time to buy UK shares is after a stock market crash, because they always recover if you give them time.Since 1925, cash has delivered an average annual return of 4.9% (it will be much lower than that for years). Gold did better, growing 7.7% a year on average. UK shares thrashed them both by growing 12.5% a year, according to Global Financial Data. Better still, you can take all your returns free of income and capital gains tax using your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance.Today, you can find loads of top companies at bargain prices. That’s why I’d buy UK shares now. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Herb December 10, 2018 at 11:36 am A FRIEND Herb Weissman Chuck, your story of the bear and wolf illustrate what too much pride and too little love for each other can do to us! Wiser animals found another way around the small path and in the process they created a way to pass each other, and not have to fight. We serve a God of love, and we are here too short a time to spend it on hurt feelings or proving how great we are. The better way is to share the Love that God gives us and helping others when we can. In the end our reward will probably be much more than we deserve.

It bought so many memories of my mom’s death back to me. I have a vial of her perfume I kept so I could smell and remember–it is so strong, the sense of smell and connection of spirit. Your article touched right to the core of it– of the loss, of the love. I am sorry you had to experience this with your spouse–twice now in different ways, as you pointed out. But I appreciated how you captured it too, sharing in a way that linked me back to my mom. Even in tears, it is a reconnection that I cherish. Thank you Chuck, Denise Thank you very much for sharing.

They could almost reach the berries, in fact, they could almost taste the berries.  But neither would venture into the berry patch, each imagining and rightly so, that the other would presume ownership of the trail.  Thus they stood glaring at each other, each of themcasting frequent and hungry glances in the direction of the berry patch.While they waited, a mama bear with her two half-grown cubs wandered into that beautiful delectable berry patch with its luscious sweet berries and began eating ravenously.  Mrs. Bear and her cubs were not trying to lay claim to the path, but they claimed the berry patch as their own and they gobbled those sweet, scrumptious scrumdiddlyumptious berries by paw full after paw full.  They slurped up great mouthfuls of the juicy berries until the juice stained their paws and dripped from the corners of their mouths.   Soon, too soon, Mrs. Bear and her berry fat cubs waddled off, leaving behind them a trampled down and very sad berry patch, and as though adding insult to injury, Mrs. Bear burped a very big berry burp and then relieved herself before following her cubs into the forest.The wolf and the bear stood there in the trail looking at the ruined berry patch and a steaming pile of bear droppings.The bear tore his eyes away from the, ‘used to be’ berry patch, and in his most intimidating voice he roared, “Get out of my way you silly runt, you insignificant, puny little mouse!” And he roared another great earth-shattering, ear-splitting, tooth chattering roar.You might say that he was just a little upset.It was quite obvious that the bear had enough.  Pulling back his lips he snarled a great big hideous, ugly, nasty and very vicious snarl.  He exposed his gleaming sharp fangs as he prepared to leap upon the proud, brave, courageous and very foolish wolf.Seeing her danger and realizing that if she continued her present behavior she could expect an early demise, the wolf spoke.“Ho, oh mighty one, wait!  I have an idea, let us walk together down the trail, you and I.  My claws are not worthy of the name.  I could never match you in a fight, but if we walk together you can say that out of the goodness of your heart you allowed me to walk beside you. The creatures of the forest will look upon this as an act of great generosity on your part and they will call you a good and generous chief.”The bear, hearing the words of the wolf, considered them worthy and thus the bear and the wolf set off down the trail together.Everything went fine and time passed.  The wolf and the bear grew to appreciate certain things about each other. The creatures of the forest both great and small saw the two of them and heard of the bear’s generosity and patience. Word also spread of the wolf’s wisdom and courage, and time passed.One day as they strolled down the trail together, the traveling companions came to a place where a rock slide had crashed to the valley floor very nearly blocking their path.  Oh, there was a trail all right, a very narrow trail, a stingy trail, a piddly little trail, a trail so narrow that only one of them could pass at a time. Oh my!                                                                             The bear, exercising his chiefly prerogative, began to enter the narrow trail, that stingy, piddly narrow trail that twisted and meandered through the boulders left by the rock slide.Suddenly the wolf leaped in front of the bear and said: “What are you doing brother bear?  You cannot go first!”The bear, angry at this impudence, growled a ferocious growl, but the wolf continued.  “No, what will all of the creatures say if you lead the way?  Why they will say that you are chief and I am your servant. I say again, no, that cannot be!”“Yes, I suppose you are right.”  Grumbled the bear.  “But if our brothers of the forest see me following you they will say I do so because I fear you and so I will lose their respect.  No, I cannot let you go first.”The two of them stood there in the trail, arguing and quarreling.  There was a terrible racket what with all of that snarling and growling, spitting and fuming. Each of them unwilling to be a follower.All of the creatures, great and small heard the noise, and they came and saw. They all said, “What a silly wolf, and what a foolish bear!”  So saying, they laughed at the two animals, and went a little way and made another, better trail.  A trail wide enough for all to pass.The wolf and the bear argued and squabbled until they became tired and hungry, and so they began to fight.The bear clawed the wolf and the wolf bit the bear.  They bit and clawed and they clawed and bit until they were covered with each other’s blood.The wolf and the bear, each weak and exhausted, near death, finally stopped fighting.  They dragged their wounded and torn bodies down the trail to a stream and bathed their wounds. They fished and gathered berries and lay in the sun and told wonderful stories and their wounds healed.One day when they were strong again the wolf and the bear proceeded down the trail.   Soon they came to the rock slide with its narrow trail where only one could pass at a time and again they quarreled and soon they fought.They bit and clawed and roared and growled and clawed and bit until they were again covered in blood!  They dragged themselves back down the trail to the stream and bathed their wounds, caught fish, ate berries, and told stories. Their wounds healed and time passed.  Winter came a cruel, hard, cold winter.  The stream froze so there were no fish, and the berries were all gone.  The wolf and the bear knew that if they fought one more time they would both surely die.Sad as it may sound they died, for neither the wolf nor the bear would yield. They had become accustomed to the fight, it had become a way of life and thus a way to death.And thus my story must end. But wait!  We should not end on such a sad note.  Let’s go back and try again.Winter would soon come, the stream would freeze and they would not be able to catch any fish and there would be no more berries. The wolf and the bear knew that if they fought one more time they would both surely die.  And so they decided, with great wisdom and with no small amount of sadness, to go their separate ways.The wolf returned to her pack where all the other wolves were glad to see her.  The bear went to the mountains and found a very warm and cozy cave (with all of the amenities) and he slept the winter through.   From that time on the wolf and the bear lived happier and wiser lives.P.S.   When the wolf and the bear met on the trail they greeted each other with respect. Each allowed the other to journey where he would, at times sharing the same stream, or the same berry patch. Thus they lived full and happy lives, the wolf and the bear.So now can my story end? What’s that, you want another ending?O.K., how about this one.Winter would soon come, the stream would freeze and there would be no more fish, and there would be no sweet berries to eat.  The wolf and the bear realized that if they fought one more time they would both surely die.  With great wisdom, they decided that it would be good if they found another trail. (That rock slide really had caused them a lot of trouble!)  They went a little way and found that nice trail that the other animals had made. They followed this trail and soon found that there were narrow places in even the best of trails.   They had shed enough blood.  Sometimes the wolf led the way and sometimes the bear but most of the time they walked side by side.  The wolf and the bear followed the trail to a place where it is always summer, and the berries are always plentiful and the fish always abundant.   I would like to say that they had no more problems, but what with wolves being wolves and bears being bears we know better than that, but they did learn to live together as friends, happily ever after.A PRAYER CONCERNING RELATIONSHIPSWhy is it father that we wolves, bears and wild cats, eagles as well as owls and tigers, elephants and hippos and the tiny little mice and the ‘possums, platypuses, porpoises and every creature that you made with such loving care can’t seem to be able to get along?  Could it be that we never will be able to have beautiful relationships with you until we learn to love and care for one another? Work your will in us and help us to understand that it is not religion that you value, but relationship.  Open our eyes and help each of us to see the value in our neighbors, not just across the street, but across the world.  Help us to understand the true worth of all people, kindred and tongues that we may all dwell together in love, peace, and harmony one day, soon.  Thank you, Father, thank you Papa God, and praise you.  In Jesus’ blessed and Holy name, Amen.

They casually collected people as they would things. Perhaps you have known a collector, such as the lady that accumulated saltshakers, or the woman that possessed racks of shoes, really meaningless, but a few close friends, oh what a joy! Abraham Lincoln said, “if you have one good friend in a lifetime, one close friend that knows the good and the bad about you and remains your friend, you are extremely fortunate.” The bible tells us that “if you would have friends, you must be friendly,” Now how simple is that?

Japanese school kids are taking their Haka performances to another level

first_imgMonday Sep 16, 2019 Japanese school kids are taking their Haka performances to another level The All Blacks have been battling the heat in Kashiwa, after being welcomed in Japan a week ago. They are preparing for their opening clash with South Africa and were given a stirring rendition of a Haka by this group of school kids on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENTThere have been a number of unique welcomes to Japan since teams started arriving last week, and New Zealand in particular have been on the receiving end of some of the more passionate showings from fans.This group of school kids at the Kashiwa-no-ha Park Stadium performed an excellent version of the Kapo O Pango, knowing all the moves and never missing a beat.Richie Mo’unga and other All Blacks were on hand to congratulate them, with the number ten returning the gesture by thanking them in their own language.Another group performed the New Zealand national anthem, doing both the Maori and English versus perfectly.New Zealand face South Africa in Pool B’s opening match on Saturday, 21 September in Yokohama City.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Greenacres is located only metres from the ocean cliffs in Merewether, Newcastle, NSW. In their brief, the owners, Basil and Jo, asked for a family home that they could grow old in, with a lift, lots of light, sleek, clean lines and, they tentatively requested: “a window with a view if possible.” Austin Maynard Architects designed them a home which captures the views from almost every space within and around the house.Save this picture!© Tess KellyGreenacres responds to both site and location. Unable to save the original dilapidated house, a new home was constructed on the steep block, a topography that set new and exciting challenges. The varying heights created the opportunity for multiple platforms to view the expansive outlook over the ocean, the Merewether Ocean Baths, and the city of Newcastle.Save this picture!© Tess KellySave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tess KellyStepping down a steep gradient at three levels the house works with the landscape as it terraces down the hill towards the street. The garage is buried at the base of the property, with the entry path and garden weaving beside, up and over the top, through the green roof. The design of the driveway is landscaped to reduce the impact of a large expanse of hard surface in front of the house.  A simple, white rectangular form, propped on three giant steel ‘paperclips’, houses the kitchen/ living and dining area, with two bedrooms and a bathroom beneath. At the back of the block is the parent’s bedroom, with a walk-in-robe, ensuite and a study – quiet and private. In the garage a lift provides direct access to all three floors, concealed within the kitchen cabinetry at the third floor level.Save this picture!© Ayden SheperdSave this picture!Diagram 03Save this picture!© Tess KellyInspired by the macrobinoculars in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the white suspended living zone was designed to bring the views into focus, like a lens, framing the vista. Capping the end is a light and transparent balcony, with all five sides – the fibreglass floor and linear arrangement of the battened ceiling, balustrade and sides – drawing the eye out.Save this picture!© Tess KellySave this picture!Diagram 04Save this picture!© Tess KellyBuild a house in front of an ocean and everything becomes about the view. At Greenacres the deliberate transparency ensures the house never gets in the way of its own view. Whilst sitting in the back garden, working in the study, or showering in the very last room on the block, the great expanse of city and ocean is unimpeded.Save this picture!SectionThe futuristic sci-fi associations extend further, as the white living zone appears to be a different form entirely, hovering or docked to an industrial brick base. The contrast is stark. The recycled bricks, a colourful mixed palette bearing approximately 20% graffiti, provide colour, character and a sense of past. Earthy, textured, heavy and robust. Resting on this brick plinth, is the extruded form, a clean, white steel and panellised, machine-made box.Save this picture!© Tess KellyProject gallerySee allShow lessEuropean Commission Launches Loi 130 Architectural CompetitionBuilt Projects & MasterplansAERIAL FUTURES: Urban ConstellationsPanel Discussion Share CHC Builders Greenacres House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveGreenacres House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this picture!© Tess Kelly+ 70Curated by María Francisca González Sharelast_img read more

Call for Zahra Kazemi murder case to be reopened

Follow the news on Iran Help by sharing this information News After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists February 25, 2021 Find out more News IranMiddle East – North Africa March 18, 2021 Find out more June 9, 2021 Find out more Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 to go further Reporters Without Borders today called for the reopening of the investigation into the murder of photojournalist Zahra Kazemi after a Tehran appeal court on 16 November upheld the acquittal of Reza Aghdam Ahmadi, the only person accused of killing her while she was in the custody of the Tehran authorities in 2003.Lawyers for the family of the victim, who had Iranian and Canadian dual nationality, have also expressed their desire for the case to be reopened while, according to Ahmadi’s lawyer, the appeal court ordered that the case be sent back to the prosecutor’s office.“This terrible case must not be shelved following the acquittal of Ahmadi, who was just a scapegoat,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are relieved to hear that the judicial authorities are now officially supposed to reopen the case, but we fear that it will be re-assigned to Tehran state prosecutor Said Mortazavi, who is suspected of being personally involved in Kazemi’s death.”The press freedom organisation continued: “For this reason, we support the request of the Kazemi family’s lawyers who are demanding that the case be investigated by an independent judge who has no connection with the prosecutor’s office. We also insist on the need for a fair trial that clarifies once and for all how Zahra Kazemi died while in the custody of the Iranian authorities.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Until now, there has been no response to her family’s requests for the past two years for her body to be exhumed and repatriated to Canada. While we wait for the Iranian authorities to finally grant this request, it is essential that all those involved in this premeditated murder are identified, tried and punished.”Ahmadi, who was one of the intelligence officers who interrogated Kazemi while she was in custody, is widely regarded as having been chosen as a scapegoat by the ultra-conservative judicial authorities. He was charged with her death following international pressure and an investigation by the Iranian parliament, but he was acquitted in a sham trial on 24 July 2004.Charges were dropped against other suspects, who were not subject to any further investigation thereafter. But that could change if the case were reopened.Usually resident in Canada, 54-year-old Kazemi was arrested on 23 June 2003 as she was photographing the relatives of detainees outside Evin prison in northern Tehran. She was beaten while in custody and died of her injuries on 10 July 2003. After trying to cover up what happened, the Iranian authorities issued a report on 20 July 2003 recognising that Kazemi’s death was the result of violence. But the report failed to explain how the blow that caused her death was inflicted. Only an autopsy could now clear this up.Against the wishes of her son, Stephan Hachemi, who has French and Canadian nationality and lives in Canada, Kazemi’s body was hastily buried on 22 July 2003 in Shiraz, in southern Iran.Her mother publicly acknowledged that pressure was put on her to authorize the burial. Since then, Canada’s requests for the body to be exhumed and repatriated to Canada have been ignored. RSF_en last_img read more
