But activity levels are well below normal and a recession seems likely. How should you invest in this uncertain environment?I’ve found three FTSE 100 shares I think will perform well in difficult times.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…Keep it simpleThe coronavirus pandemic has shown how dependent we are on supermarkets. I don’t see this changing, especially in a recession, when shoppers become even more price conscious.My top pick of the UK’s listed supermarkets is Wm Morrison Supermarkets (LSE: MRW). This Bradford-based business combines traditional supermarket retail with a modern approach to growth. Behind the scenes, it supplies groceries for Amazon‘s online delivery service and is the main wholesale supplier for McColl’s convenience stores.Morrison’s food production business gives it an edge in the wholesale sector, helping to support higher overall profit margins. I also like the low debt levels and large, freehold property portfolio – 87% of stores are owned outright.The Morrisons share price looks decent value to me on 13 times forecast earnings. The dividend hasn’t been cut and I estimate the current dividend yield at about 3.6%. I see this FTSE 100 share as a low-risk buy.Profit from silver saversThere’s speculation that widespread lockdowns may trigger a baby boom. We’ll see. But for now, the reality is that in most developed countries, the population is getting older. These silver savers often have more disposable cash and better healthcare than younger people.This should be good news for FTSE 100 share Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN). This medical technology company makes nearly half its profit from orthopaedic implants such as knee and hip replacements.Other growth areas include products for wound care, including chronic conditions relating to diabetes and pressure ulcers. Older patients form an important part of these market segments, too.Smith & Nephew flies under the radar for many private investors, but this £14bn firm enjoys profits margins in excess of 15%, strong cash generation and low levels of debt. Growth has also improved over the last couple of years. The shares aren’t cheap, on 20 times forecast earnings. But I see this as a quality business. I’d be happy to buy at current levels.This FTSE 100 share yields 6.6%Utility group SSE (LSE: SSE) was rocketing at the start of the year, but the shares were hit by the stock market crash. This popular FTSE 100 income stock looks attractively priced to me at about 1,200p, with a dividend yield of 6.6%.In a year when so many companies have cut their dividends, is this payout still safe? I think so.At the end of March, the firm said that it intended to maintain the dividend at 80p this year. This gives a yield of 6.6% at current levels. If the market was pricing in a dividend cut, I’d expect the forecast yield to be higher than this.My hope is that SSE’s role as the UK’s largest renewable generator may have provided some protection against lower electricity demand during lockdown. This is because renewable power gets sold into the grid before fossil fuel power.It’s too soon to be sure about the outlook for 2020–21, but I think SSE looks good value at current levels and rate this share as a buy for income.

Ellen Leung | Friday, 12th June, 2020 | More on: BBOX JET RKT The FTSE 100 has had a bad week, falling over 6%, mainly due to a large fall yesterday when selling pressure became intense, especially in the U.S. This was due to fears over a second wave of the virus after a number of U.S states reported an uptick in cases following the recent relaxation of lockdown. As shops started to reopen this week in the UK, there is a chance of a second outbreak of the coronavirus that could cause another severe market crash. Here are the three companies I think will thrive despite another crash. Reckitt BenckiserReckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) is a producer of health, hygiene and home products. Its cleaning and hygiene brands such as Dettol and Lysol are poised to have continuous demand. Reckitt Benckiser’s first quarter net revenue of £3.5bn was 13.3% higher than the same period last year.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…The high demand for its health and hygiene products in the wake of the pandemic will last, I believe, as consumer behaviours are changing to maintain a high level of hygiene. Its product demand should hold despite the potential second outbreak of the coronavirus, and could be a good addition to your portfolio ahead of another market crash.Just Eat TakeawayThe fear of a second wave of coronavirus (whether in the UK or elsewhere) will prevent us from going to restaurants as much as before. Even when restaurants re-open, footfall will be lower due to social distancing or health concerns. I think this will benefit Just Eat Takeaway.com (LSE: JET) as people will order takeaway instead, as we continue spend the majority of our time at home.Just Eat is an international business with market penetration around the world. Over 40% of revenue is from outside the UK now, spreading across 13 countries across Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. With the recent announcement of its acquisition of US-based GrubHub, the resulting synergies and cost savings lay the path to profitability in my opinion. The combined company would gain pricing power and increase market share as being the biggest platform, with an abundance of restaurant choices.Tritax Big BoxTritax Big Box (LSE: BBOX) is a real estate investment trust investing in “Big Box” distribution centres. Its customers include large scale retailers such as Amazon, M&S, Tesco, Morrisons and DHL.As ecommerce and online grocery shopping will likely be the norm going forward, Tritax Big Box is poised to have steady revenue going forward. The company’s customers are institutional-grade tenants on long-term leases (typically at least 12 years in length) with upward-only rent reviews.Strong tenant demand and limited supply of very large logistics warehouses would provide significant opportunities for the company for years to come. Therefore, Tritax Big Box is a great defensive stock, thanks to its crucial role in the supply chain of major blue-chip companies and the strong ecommerce tailwind.Market crash 2.0A market crash sounds very negative to most, but savvy investors would take this as an opportunity of a lifetime to pick up some quality stocks at a discount. As Warren Buffett always says, you should be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful, so now is the opportunity to buy when others are selling off.

ArchDaily CopyHouses•Londrina, Brazil Save this picture!© Denílson Machado+ 15 Share Brazil Year: Photographs: Denílson MachadoText description provided by the architects. Perfect for the leisure time of a large family, this house in Londrina, Brazil seems like its floating in the air. That is due to the volumetry and the large spans without pillars designed by the architect Guilherme Torres.Save this picture!© Denílson MachadoFrom the unevenness of nearly 3 meters of the ground, it came the idea of a residence with a cantilever main floor to reserve more space for the leisure area on the lower level. “I’ve docked the house on the slope” says the architect Guilherme Torres, “By doing that, I’ve released the space underneath it to the garden, the pool and the living rooms”. The irregularrelief was won by a monumental block of prestressed concrete containing cables of high strength steel driven and trapped inside the slab itself. This feature allowed the span of 17.5 meters long besides the 4.5 meters cantilever volume beyond the wall that mark boundaries of the leisure area. Save this picture!© Denílson MachadoSuspended and without pillars, the construction brings straight, pure and simple forms. Contrasting with the white masonry, stone and wood coatings have the power to warm the look without breaking the contemporary twist of the proposal. “By being natural, they carry an amount of rusticity and promote comfort”, says the author. The independent functioning between the two storeys was another right solution. On a daily basis, the life of the family is concentrated on the upper floor, where it is distributed the bedrooms, the kitchen, a living and dining room, all accessed by the side ramp and garage on the upper hall. But on weekends, they enjoy to receive the large family in meetings on the spacious and comfortable leisure area with pool, garden, barbecue gourmet and two generous lounges. Save this picture!ElevationThe project considered the use of local labor and simple materials, used in large volumes. Decorative stone, exposed concrete and white masonry are the elements that define the whole volumetry. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe project uses rainwater capture for reuse and solar heating system for faucets, showers and pool. All the residence was designed considering the solar axis and natural profile of the terrain. To maintain the privacy while not giving up the view, the entire block of bedrooms has received a closure of wood louvers, and due to this feature the house can remain open windows and have permanent cross ventilation.Save this picture!© Denílson MachadoProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Research Centre for University of Jussieu / BIG+OFFArticlesSan Sebastian Subway Entrance / SnøhettaArticles Share SN House / Studio GT Houses Projects SN House / Studio GTSave this projectSaveSN House / Studio GT Area: 843 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2010 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/186291/sn-house-studio-gt Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/186291/sn-house-studio-gt Clipboard Architects: Studio GT Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio GTOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasLondrinaHouses3D ModelingBrazilPublished on November 29, 2011Cite: “SN House / Studio GT” 29 Nov 2011.

Just by clicking, to quote iGive’s promotional material, the average nonprofit raised $52.65 throughout the year. Not much, you might reasonably think. But the most successful cause raised $16,738 during the year, over a quarter of which was raised in the last 30 days of the year. Participating individuals raised an average of $5 during the year, although the most active member raised $159. Over 30,000 people are now supporting 3,273 non-profits of their choice with their online buying and browsing, at no cost to the member or to the organisation. iGive has shifted its emphasis to online shopping recently because “shopping helps our members generate more money for worthy causes.”

September 22, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for end to payment of defamation fines before cases are heard in appeal News SpainEurope – Central Asia RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders today called on Spanish justice minister José Maria Michavila to proceed at once with a promised amendment to the civil procedure code that would relieve news media of the requirement to pay heavy fines in defamation cases before the cases are heard in appeal. The minister told the Spanish parliament on 10 September that he would present such an amendment, but the need is urgent because the present situation is jeopardising the financial survival of some news media and poses a threat to press freedom as it could encourage self-censorship.The promised amendment would correct a change to the civil procedure code which took effect in January 2001 and which provides for the provisional execution of lower court sentences without awaiting the outcome of any appeal hearing.Several news media have been hit by the 2001 change. La Realidad, an independent weekly in the northern province of Cantabria, was forced to close on 28 December 2001 after been fined some 160,000 euros for libel. The magazine El Siglo was ordered to pay a fine of 120,202 euros on 21 January 2003 for the same reason.As a result of defamation suits, the online newspaper Canoa-Diariodirecto and the TV station Telemadrid were sentenced to pay fines of 120,000 euros and 500,000 euros respectively in February. A sum of 35,000 euros was seized from the bank accounts of Canoa-Diariodirecto and its editor Fernando Jauregui on 10 September. The online newspaper has appealed against the sente nce and has filed a complaint with the Judicial Council.

The popular station had earlier reportedly been the target of a takeover bid.”We know how the Ukrainian judiciary can speak for interests other than justice when it comes to media matters,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma. “We caution against the temptation to jeopardise the existence of the station and ask you to oppose any such move.”The station’s director-general, Alexander Rodnyansky, said the decision by the Kiev appeals court, confirming a lower court decision in February, was “arbitrary and absurd” and said he was lodging an appeal. This enables the station to continue broadcasting in the meantime.He said “the simple existence of the station upsets some political and business elements” and accused businessman Vadim Rabinovich of being behind the action against 1+1, which he said he had tried to win control of. Rabinovich has denied any involvement in the matter.

NewsLocal NewsVital healthcare service for Limerick city’s homelessBy Alan Jacques – April 3, 2015 1426 by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Minister Jan O’Sullivan visits the GP clinic for homeless people run by Dr Patrick O’DonnellA PILOT primary healthcare clinic for the homeless, drug users, migrants and other marginalised groups has marked it first year in operation in Limerick.The clinic is based out of the Ana Liffey Drug Project at the Fairgreen on Wednesday afternoons and at the St Vincent DePaul Drop-in Centre on Hartstonge Street on Thursday from 2.30 to 5pm. The aim of the clinic is to improve access to primary healthcare for people who have difficulties in accessing and availing of primary care services in the city.The need for the clinic was identified during a consultation process undertaken by Dr Patrick O’Donnell, a 34 year-old Limerick GP who is a Clinical Fellow in Social Inclusion at the UL Graduate Entry Medical School.He now runs the clinics at the two city centre locations where he has seen over 200 patients and recorded more than 500 consultations in the last year. In future the clinics will also serve as sites for research and the teaching of students on issues related to the healthcare of marginalised groups.The clinic was established by the Partnership for Health Equity (PHE) which is a collaboration of clinicians, medical educators, social scientists and healthcare policy makers and planners. It is funded by UL, the North Dublin City General Practice Training Programme and the HSE.Professor Anne MacFarlane, Professor of Primary Healthcare Research at the UL Medical School said that there’s consistent evidence that people who need primary care are least likely to get it.“This low threshold GP clinic is an important service which strives to provide GP care to people with complex health and social care needs. Knowledge from the clinic will inform new research projects and recommendations for policy. This feedback loop between practice, research and policy is essential for improving the nature of primary healthcare service provision,” she explained.The project is being supported by Safetynet which is a networking organisation for doctors, nurses and voluntary agencies who provide primary health care to homeless people and other marginalised groups in Dublin, Cork and Galway.To mark the clinic’s first anniversary, Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan visited the service at St Vincent DePaul Drop-in Centre last Friday when she is very supportive of the important work that the GP clinic is achieving.“The clinic is reaching out to vulnerable people who may otherwise not receive the advice and care they need. Dr O’Donnell and his partners in this initiative are making a real difference in people’s lives,” said Minister O’Sullivan.“In less than a year there have been more than 400 patient contacts which proves how necessary this service is,” she concluded.
