There are two great joys to being a long-term shareholder in companies. The first is the capital gains (profits) made by selling shares at higher prices than one paid for them. The second is the passive income one collects from firms that pay regular cash dividends to shareholders.Dividends die in the third quarterNow for awful news for dividend-loving shareholders and value investors. In the third quarter of 2020, the dividends paid by UK-listed companies almost halved, collapsing by 49.1% to just £18bn. This is the biggest plunge in Q3 payouts since 2020, according to this report from Link Asset Services.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…According to Link, two-thirds of companies listed in London cut, cancelled, or suspended their dividend payouts for the summer season. Clearly, given the economic ravages of the coronavirus, British companies decided to conserve cash. Instead of doling it out to shareholders, they elected to keep cash on their balance sheets to help ride out the downturn.In Q2, payouts collapsed by 57% to £16.1bn, so at least the third quarter improved on the second. For 2020 as a whole, Link expects total dividends to dive by almost two-thirds (39%). This massive shortfall (estimated at £60bn) is a brutal blow for pensioners and investment funds at a time of ultra-low interest rates. In effect, UK dividends have rewound eight years, back to 2012.This FTSE 100 firm pays 6% a year in cashTo bank steady dividends today, investors need to exercise caution. For me, the most reliable payouts come from big business leaders: powerful companies with strong balance sheets, revenues, and cash flows. Take, for example, GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK), one of my favourite British businesses.Before the coronavirus devastated economies and markets, GSK shares were flying high. They hit a 52-week peak of 1,857p on 24 January, but plunged below 1,375p at the market trough on 23 March. The share price then rebounded above 1,742p by 13 May, but has since slumped. As I write, GSK shares hover below 1,340p, even lower than their March bottom.The good news for buyers of GSK shares today is that they pay a monster dividend. It’s the fifth-largest by size in the FTSE 100, in fact. GSK’s quarterly dividends total 80p a share, for a current dividend yield of 6%. Even better, this dividend is solidly covered 1.64 times by GSK’s yearly earnings. This bumper passive income is why I own GSK shares today and have done for decades.This is the second-largest dividend in the FTSE 100British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) is my second ‘dividend darling’. It’s a value share that I’ve written about repeatedly since the dark day of March. Obviously, as the #1 cigarette maker in the world, BATS is certainly not a stock for ethical investors. But it’s an enormous global business with loyal (and addicted) customers, huge revenues, and strong cash flows.As recent as 15 January, BATS shares hit a 52-week high of £35.07. Today, they trade almost £10 cheaper, after closing at £25.50. This makes BATS shares notably cheap, given their price-to-earnings ratio of 9.3 and earnings yield of 10.8%. What’s more, they offer a whopping dividend yield approaching 8.3%, covered 1.3 times by earnings.In summary, as a value investor looking for income, I love the delightful dividends of GSK and BATS (which are at opposite ends of the healthcare system!). I’d happily buy both shares today inside an ISA so as to collect tax-free future dividends and capital gains. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images.

Jason White: How to put in monster tackles

first_imgThe former Sale and Scotland flanker on momentum-changing hits Hammered: White slams into Rob Sidoli in 2006 (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jason White: How to put in monster tacklesThe former Scotland captain was known in his playing days as a hitman, relishing putting in match-halting tackles on opposition stars. So here are his tips for putting in your own momentum-changing hits.Get scanning“Make sure your spacing is correct in the defensive line and scan up to see what’s in front of you. Are you numbers down or up? That has a big influence on whether you’re going to shoot out to cut off the play or drift heavily. If numbers up, you’re in a positive position and can put on as much line speed as possible and get into the opposition space.”Team awarenss“With big hits, you’re going for it yourself. But you’ve developed an understanding with team-mates about who’s going to do it – not everybody in the team is going to shoot early. The biggest thing is having those conversations on the training ground to help each other out.”Proud as punch: White after beating Fiji in 2003 (Getty)Get shifting“You have to win the first five yards – it’s physical and mental. So it’s getting off the line as quickly as possible, getting low and driving. It’s a transfer of all the work you do in the gym. A bit of vanity and being in shape is great, but how does that gym work help you on the pitch? Your squats, jumps – it’s about getting that power from your legs to your shoulder and transferring that into the opposition ball-carrier.”center_img Related: Jason White relives his biggest hitsBe in charge of the tackle“Look to make shoulder contact around the midriff, the ribs. So just below the nipple either front- or side-on, then transferring that power. You can try to wrap one arm round and hook a leg up, to get them off balance. Or depending on the power you put through you could grab both legs, but then it’s about making sure you’re in charge of the tackle and can look after the person. Hitting them as hard as you can but ensuring they are safe.” This article originally appeared in the September 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

As bishops in this region, we are well aware of the historic persistence of racism toward our black sisters and brothers. While such racism is not confined to our southern geography, its history with “Jim Crow” under its various guises over the years reminds us of the profound work left undone by our continued failure to fully address the sins of racism and white supremacy in our country.Recent events are a shocking reminder of what we have left undone. The white vigilante murder of Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia; the unwarranted killing by police of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky while she was sleeping in her own bed; and now the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota also at the hands of police, scream out to us of our work left undone. Sadly, these racist murders are by no means the only ones, and they were not committed simply by a few bad actors. What we are seeing is the work of a conscious and unconscious system designed to deny dignity and safety to some of God’s children.The demonstrations across our country indicate that people have had enough. We believe all people of good will and love of neighbor should insist that this behavior by police and white vigilantes end now. Their actions tarnish the reputations of the many wonderful women and men who serve as police officers. We need national leadership who will work to make the changes necessary in our justice system, so such brutality becomes a thing of the past.We call on all in civil authority to step back from military-style responses to these demonstrations because they only serve to escalate tensions even further. What will reduce those tensions is a commitment by our elected leaders to lasting, tangible changes in law enforcement methods and in the laws governing them. We also invite our clergy and parishioners to recommit themselves to live into the Beloved Community, as Dr. King articulated it. We believe that this is what justice and mercy require as they are reflected in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.Province IV Bishops signing (In alphabetical order)John Bauerschmidt, Bishop, Diocese of TennesseeScott Benhase, Bishop & Vice-President, Province IVGreg Brewer, Bishop, Diocese of Central FloridaBrian Cole, Bishop, Diocese of East TennesseePeter Eaton, Bishop, Diocese of Southeast FloridaRussell Kendrick, Bishop, Diocese of the Central Gulf CoastFrank Logue, Bishop, Diocese of GeorgiaJose McLoughlin, Bishop, Diocese of Western North CarolinaHenry Parsley, Visiting Bishop, Diocese of South CarolinaPhoebe Roaf, Bishop, Diocese of West TennesseeSam Rodman, Bishop, Diocese of North CarolinaBrian Seage, Bishop, Diocese of MississippiRob Skirving, Bishop, Diocese of East CarolinaKee Sloan, Bishop, Diocese of AlabamaDabney Smith, Bishop, Diocese of Southwest FloridaMorris Thompson, Bishop, Diocese of LouisianaMark Van Koevering, Bishop, Diocese of LexingtonAndrew Waldo, Bishop, Diocese of Upper South CarolinaTerry White, Bishop, Diocese of KentuckyRob Wright, Bishop, Diocese of Atlanta Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Washington, DC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

A follow-up with Orange County Animal Control and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Agricultural Crimes Unit yesterday led to probable cause to believe the roosters were being prepared for fighting.Preparing involves separating the animals, trimming feathers, and trimming the bird’s cones. Found on the property were makeshift corrals and fences, along with several round rooster cages containing individual birds. Officers also interviewed the occupants of the property who indicated that fighting was not done on the premises because it is illegal, however, the animals were raised and prepped, in order for them to be sent to places outside Florida where they can fight.“Unfortunately, offenders believe that the act of preparing or training an animal to fight is not a crime,” stated Police Chief Michael McKinley, “the Apopka Police Department takes this offense, in addition to the actual offense of fighting the animals, seriously and will continue to actively investigate any allegations of abuse.”The following suspects were arrested: Jose Antonio Perez- Sanchez 69, and Edy Domingo Dejesus Ramos, 49. Both men were charged with Conservation of Animals- Selling and  Possessing the use of Animals to Fight or Bait and Conservation of Animals- to Sell or Possess Equipment For Animal Fight Bait.This is a developing investigation and further information will be released when it is available.

The Crusaders show their class at Twickenham – Israel Dagg try

first_imgSunday Mar 27, 2011 The Crusaders show their class at Twickenham – Israel Dagg try The Crusaders turned it on in the Twickenham sunshine earlier today as their dazzling backs and powerful front five proved too strong for a determined Sharks team. The Christchurch side won 44-28 despite a Sharks comeback. It was the first ever Super Rugby game outside of the Tri Nations countries and while it was a great spectacle and a wonderful match, it was forced through a natural disaster that has left Christchurch in the unenviable position of having to rebuild from the ground up. As with all sport though, it has the power to change and while only a little over 35 000 people turned out at the home of rugby in London, money will have been raised, as well as the profile of not only Super Rugby, but the cause at hand. The first half of the game was all about the sheer class of flyhalf Dan Carter, who ran the ship in a way only he knows how, providing the platform for league convert Sonny Bill Williams to release their dangerous backs. Their scrum was also impressive, as they pushed a Springbok front row in a manner that not many would have predicted. While the Sharks sorely missed their chief playmaker in Patrick Lambie, the might of the Crusaders would have no doubt blow any side off the park, so the way in which the Sharks came back in the second half should also be commended. At the end of the day though, this Crusaders side is something special, with running lines like no other, talent to burn, and as they showed the fans at Twickenham, on their day they can be unstoppable. The Sharks did look to get the better of the sub-exchanges later on, and Todd Blackadder and his team will be a little concerned at some of the injuries they picked up. All in all, it was a brilliant spectacle, a wonderful advert for Super Rugby, and one of the more memorable games of rugby you’re likely to see this season. Below is just one of the tries, as the game ended literally half an hour ago, but further highlights will be posted soon.

The task is to design a house for two families which will be located on a very valuable and exclusive city location.

The layout is determined by the site topography and the designer’s approach to divide the house into two residential units.Save this picture!Courtesy of AVP ArhitektiThe main idea was to conceive a house that can be read as a single object, despite its functional layout (two residential units, garage, technical facilities, etc.) Thanks to all these characteristics, the house answers the configuration of the site by adapting itself to the layers of the site and connects the residential areas with the external ground on different levels. Thus, the interior spaces have their own privacy. The house has different view angles according to the point of view. From Hercegovačka Street the project seems to be a low object that frames the panorama of the city of Zagreb. On the other hand, the view of the house from the French Republic square gives the impression of a large object which meanders along the topography behind the historical facade of Ilica.Save this picture!Courtesy of AVP ArhitektiThe house is an energy-efficient project.

Of resemblance to the social housing typology, Pearl-Marzouq complex, ‘Lou’lou’at Al-Marzouq’, embodied the complete opposite; a private housing for the affluent. Built in the early 70’s on al-Ras, a peninsula-like landform; with remoteness from the city center, al-Deira, yet at a distance close enough to be gazed at. With its red roof tiles and warm sandstone walls, the building infused a Mediterranean feel to the Arabian Gulf. For white collar expats partaking in the spur of Kuwait’s economy, it was home away from home. Similarly, it was convincing for well-to-do locals to substitute the privacy of their single residences, seeking a new ‘urbanized’ experience, by claiming their prime villa-like duplexes and penthouses with an elevated vantage point back to the city and its sea. The excitement inherent to this dense typology, was further amplified by subverting the building law to equate the number of floors to skip-stop elevator corridors. Connecting midway to duplex apartments, the area (sqm) was almost doubled, as the building height from its surrounding.  Save this picture!© Sylvette BlaimontSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sylvette BlaimontWith the changing zoning laws seeking higher density, more than 50% of the modernist structures have been razed in al-Ras in the past decade. PAD10, prior to being hired, advocated to raise awareness towards the architectural value of the project and started a community blog in this regard. What made this building stand aside from its peers then, made it escape demolition now, with a built-up-area still relevant somehow. Save this picture!© Sylvette BlaimontPearl Marzouq retooling by PAD10 comprised architecture, landscaping, interior, alongside with branding, signage and wayfinding for the 40,000sqm project, on 11,000sqm plot of land.  Save this picture!SectionAfter Pearl Marzouq once encroached on public property with its pool directly touching the sea, it now re-integrates with its surroundings by publicizing its once private courtyard. The central courtyard, ‘al-howsh’, was raised to meet the ‘artificial ground’ of the perimeter plinth and be one with the commercial pilotis floor, thus doubling its frontage. Raising the ground was mostly achieved by compacting demolished debris from facades openings and other demolition operations on the site. The new central courtyard design hold remnants from what was there; the pool pit was filled with soil for large trees, concrete troughs syncopated the building structural bays, the perimeter of the pool structure, and the inset concrete pods. A series of hyperbolic HDPE tensile membranes span between buildings, and are supported by them, to shade the courtyard from Kuwait’s sun.   Save this picture!© Sylvette BlaimontA C-shaped residential block flanks a central glass pavilion to the south, along the main road. The pavilion is reprogrammed as a main reception area, thus re-orienting and refocusing the once disparate access points to the different blocks into a main one through the central courtyard. Save this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!Axonometric128 apartments of varied typologies; duplex units and multiple size penthouse units. The nine-storey residential buildings are sectionally composed of four duplex apartments topped by a penthouse floor. With a skip-stop elevator, the building section and façade reflect a richness in staggering the various internal conditions. The external sandstone façades are overlaid by expanded aluminum mesh to hold the aging sandstone in place, without concealment. The apartments’ reconfiguration and façade treatment reclaimed the breath-taking views all around. In the apartments, ‘bay-windows’ in the bedrooms were achieved by V-shaped balconies and relocating the closet spaces away from the façade.   Save this picture!© Sylvette BlaimontProduct Description.• Expanded aluminum mesh, by ItalMesh The façade’s warm sandstone is integral to the building’s identity. After decades of being exposed to the elements, the sandstone has given to falling. To maintain maximum visibility to the stone, while holding them in place, we overlaid them with expanded aluminum mesh with maximum allowable apertures. To bend the mesh along the sides, we were technically required to use smaller aperture of expanded aluminum. Synonymous with the staggered façade, we devised a pattern that alternates between both apertures. Save this picture!© Sylvette Blaimont• PAD10 ‘mist pole’, by Diamante To mitigate outdoor living conditions, with harsh Kuwait heat, PAD10 devised a network of ‘mist poles’ within the central courtyard, with mist nozzles at two levels; a lower one close to the ground to cool the basalt tiles during off-hours, and a high one above the crowd level to cool their days and evenings. These two sets of nozzles work independently at different hours of the day. Simultaneously, they are topped by a lighting LED tube to light the courtyard. PAD10 designed the fixture and Diamante, Italy, fabricated it.Project gallerySee allShow lessExpoforum Convention and Exhibition Centre / Yevgeny Gerasimov and Partners, Tchoban…Selected ProjectsVrindavan / unTAGSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:2 St, Salmiya, KuwaitLocation to be used only as a reference.

Firouzmandan house is located in Lar city, with-a-hot-and-humid-climate, which is part of Fars province in Iran. Lar, a historical city in Fars has suffered from an earthquake in 1960; temporary-shelters with saddle-roofs were prepared for the earthquake survivors in the south part of the old city. When the city was rebuilt (based-on-a-grid-plan) the municipality decided to keep temporary-shelters. The new houses were built based on the closed-space to an open-space ratio of 60% to 40%, respectively. This house is designed for Firouzmandan family on a 460 square-meter-site in three levels of underground-floor, ground-floor and first-floor.Save this picture!© Hossein FarahaniSave this picture!© Hossein FarahaniThis project is inspired by an Iranian-traditional-housing-pattern called “Chaharsofe” – a pattern in which a small open-space is surrounded by the closed-spaces. The open-space in “Chaharsofe” is relatively smaller than the open-space in a so-called “courtyard pattern”. Furthermore, an additional relatively large open-space is attached to the side of the “Chaharsofe”.

These open-spaces are not individual spaces; rather they are linked into each-other to create a collection of them. On-the-other-hand, every single one of these open-spaces connects to a number of closed-spaces so that the interaction between the closed and open-spaces make the house more adaptable to users’ different needs.Save this picture!© Hossein FarahaniProject gallerySee allShow lessTwo Halves / Moloney ArchitectsSelected ProjectsDiller Scofidio + Renfro to Create Planning Vision for Charlotte Science CenterArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  650 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeHAMAAN StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLarIranPublished on November 15, 2017Cite: “Firouzmandan House / HAMAAN Studio” 15 Nov 2017.

In 2003 almost 400 charities took part in the survey “Reaping the rewards – is risk management proving its worth?” which, say PKF, is “the most comprehensive study of how charities are dealing with risk.” Advertisementcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 3 May 2004 | News Charities risk management survey 2004 launchedlast_img read more

They passionately believed that sport teaches everyone so much about important life values such as competition, integrity, hard work and teamwork.”He noted the work and impact of the 2017 charity partner of the London Marathon, the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign.He said: “In recent years, it has been shown that sport – and particularly running – has powerful benefits to mental health and well-being. In 2017, the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign, led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, helped to change the national conversation about mental health. We believe that choosing a sport-related project as the beneficiary of the 40th London Marathon is a great tribute to both our history and what our event is all about.”  114 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis31 Tagged with: charity of the year corporate London marathon sport Virgin Money is inviting applications from charities with sports projects to be the official charity of the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon.
