There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!center_img Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 10th January, 2021 Many investors dream of being able to make £1m in the stock market. Unfortunately, for most, this vision remains nothing more than a distant goal. But it doesn’t have to be. A wide selection of individuals worldwide has made a seven-figure fortune (or more) buying stocks and shares. The most famous of these is Warren Buffett. A Warren Buffett mentalityToday, this billionaire businessman is considered to be one of the best investors of all time. However, he wasn’t born with this reputation. Even great investors have to start somewhere. For Buffett, that was as an intern with one of his favourite fund managers. 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…When his employer decided to shut up shop, the young investor set out on his own. He raised $100,000 from friends and family and started investing. Buffett’s strategy was simple. He sought out dirt-cheap stocks and bought them in large quantities. By using this approach, he was able to accrue a $1m a fortune by the age of 30. Any investor can follow this path. Buffett is a highly intelligent individual, but he’s always liked to keep things simple. In the early days, he followed a simple pattern of buying stocks trading at a discount to their assets’ value, or a low P/E ratio. Over the past few decades, he’s refined and developed approach. However, Buffett’s desire to buy stocks cheaply hasn’t changed. Cheap UK sharesNow could be the perfect time to replicate Warren Buffett’s approach with UK shares. The combination of the coronavirus pandemic and Brexit scared international investors away from domestic equities in 2020. As a result, I think some fantastic bargains emerged. Many of these firms are unlikely to be impacted by Brexit issues or the pandemic. Indeed, many have reported sales growth over the past 12 months. British American Tobacco is a good example. The stock is trading at a mid-single-digit P/E and offers a 7%+ dividend yield. The company is expecting to report a modest increase in sales and profits for 2020. Another example is GlaxoSmithKline. This firm did see a small impact on operations from the pandemic. However, its core business of supplying vaccines and treatments for diseases such as HIV is unlikely to see a prolonged downturn in my view. Then there are the banks such as Lloyds. Shares in this lender plunged in 2020, and they haven’t recovered. Nevertheless, the group’s underlying business is, in some ways, stronger today than it was at the beginning of 2020. Its balance sheet is stuffed with cash, and cost-cutting efforts have improved profit margins. The bottom line Buffett built a huge fortune buying stocks when no one else wanted them. It may be easy to replicate this strategy right now by acquiring a basket of cheap UK shares like those listed above.  Want to make £1m?

Percy Montgomery gets up ended by Bryan Habana in Super 14 final

first_imgThursday May 24, 2007 Percy Montgomery gets up ended by Bryan Habana in Super 14 final This is only a few minutes into the 2007 Super 14 Final, played in the Durban ‘Sharktank’. The game itself was fairly scrappy throughout. There were, however, several crunching tackles; some legal, others not. This is obviously one of the not-so-legal tackles, as Byan Habana clearly takes Percy Montgomery in the air. Should it have been a yellow-card? If it had occured later in the game I think it would have been… But it was very early and the referee, Steve Walsh, didn’t want to send anyone to the bin just yet, by the looks of things. Habana said this about it: “It must have looked awful from the stands but I never had any intention of hurting Monty. As I went in for the tackle I slipped and could not stop myself.” Interesting note: When Walsh is talking to Matfield and Habana he says there are a “few problems” with the tackle. “Firstly…You took the man out in the air, etc etc.” and then he never really finishes with that. He just proceeds to say he wants composure, and then they play on.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

Three great tries from Samoa vs Fiji in the 2012 Pacific Nations Cup

first_imgThursday Jun 14, 2012 Three great tries from Samoa vs Fiji in the 2012 Pacific Nations Cup Samoa continued their unbeaten run in this year’s Pacific Nations Cup with a narrow 29-26 victory over Fiji in Tokyo on Sunday. We haven’t featured much from the tournament so far, so here’s three of the best tries from the match. Led ably by experienced winger David Lemi, Samoa now need to beat Japan next to claim the 2012 title. On Tuesday they beat rivals Tonga 20-18. Japan, who were on a high following their Asian 5 Nations win, lost 24-20 to Tonga, but will aim to boost morale with a win.While both Samoa and Fiji took a while to get going in this match, once they did it was highly entertaining as both showed their power and of course, famed running game.Nemia Kenatale started things for the Fijians after a great counter-attack and some great interpassing. Samoa then scored two tries in the space of a few minutes as David Lemi first set up Sevens powerhouse Alafoti Faosiliva, then got on the end of a brilliant piece of play himself.Fiji play Scotland this coming weekend, and have made wholesale changes to their side following the Samoa defeat. Eight positional replacements will greet the Scots, who will no doubt be relishing playing in a bit of sunshine, despite their historic win over Australia in the rain.The three best tries of the game featured below.

To dynamize the project, the upper floor was removed from the lower volume causing half the house to seem to float on the site.Save this picture!© Pedro KokWith the intention of ensuring influx of natural lighting and ventilation, the project has large openings on the facades and roof, that also contribute to the composition of its main facades. Downstairs, the living room can be completely opened to the garden by sliding glass panels, creating an extension of the home to the outside and making the environments mix. To ensure the privacy of the bedrooms, on the top floor openings are protected by wooden shutters painted white, beyond the glass on the inner wall.Save this picture!© Pedro KokThe architects prioritize spatial richness. As for the materials, interior and exterior walls are white, with a difference in the textures of the environments. Interior floors are finished with granilite and mediate between the interior and the exterior, bringing the garden into the house and vice versa. The horizontal and vertical circulations receive natural light through vertical openings, turning these spaces into a small gallery exhibiting art objects and everyday life.

Charity Commission gives safer giving advice for Ramadan

first_imgCharity Commission gives safer giving advice for Ramadan Howard Lake | 8 August 2011 | News  35 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Charity Commission Individual giving Law / policy Ramadan AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Charity Commission has issued ./guidance to the public on how to give effectively and safely to charity during Ramadan.The holy month of Ramadan is a time when many community organisations and Mosques benefit from the generosity of Muslim people. Many charities are also currently raising funds to help the people affected by the famine in East Africa at this time.Maulana Shahid Raza OBE, Chairman of the Mosques & Imams National Advisory Board (MINAB) said: “Many Muslims will be giving very generously during the holy month of Ramadan. There are many charities that will be fundraising at the moment, particularly for the people affected by the East Africa crisis. By donating to charities registered with the Charity Commission, donors can have additional confidence that their donation will be used properly. Registered charities also benefit from the ./guidance and advice provided by the Commission. I would like to wish everyone Ramadan Mubaarak.”Safer giving advice from the Charity CommissionThe Commission’s advice includes the following tips:• To donate online to a particular charity, visit the charity’s website – check that you have the right web address. You can find the charity’s website address on their entry on the Charity Commission’s Register of Charities.• Look out for registered charity numbers in adverts – it is a legal requirement for registered charities with an income above £10,000 a year to state it is a registered charity when fundraising on a range of documents, including websites, advertisements and other documents such as receipts.• If you are in any doubt about a charity collector, collection bag or fundraising materials, check the charity’s name and registration number on the public register of charities on the Commission’s website.• Some charities, particularly during Ramadan, fundraise through television and radio appeals. Ofcom rules about charity appeals say that they are allowed in programming only if they are broadcast free of charge, but charities can pay for fundraising adverts.• If you receive collection bags or fundraising materials from non-charitable organisations claiming to be charitable, and/or using a false registration number, you should contact the police, your local trading standards office, the Advertising Standards Agency and your local council.• Always check whether a collector is wearing a proper ID badge.• Check whether a collector has authority to collect. A permit or license is usually required if raising money in a public place. Collections in private places like train stations and supermarkets need the owner’s or manager’s permission. Collections in pubs need either a license or an exemption.• Check that the collecting tin has a seal and that it is not damaged.• If in any doubt, send your donation directly to the charity.• If you are concerned that you may have been targeted by a fundraising scam, you should contact the police. You should also contact the Charity Commission via its website.Adverts on registering as a charityThe Charity Commission is also urging any organisations which are charitable and are required to register to do so online on the Charity Commission’s website. The Commission has produced some short adverts in English, Urdu and Bengali publicising the benefits of registering as a charity.www.charitycommission.gov.uk Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Next: Auction.com Adds Min Alexander as COO Proposals to help address California’s housing crisis—such as allowing more housing closer to busy transit hubs—are sometimes met with refrains of “not in my backyard!” However, Los Angeles aims to combat the housing shortages by looking exactly there—in residents’ backyards.Like many parts of the country, Los Angeles is facing the simultaneous stresses of too few homes and skyrocketing home prices. It’s only going to get worse: city government estimates it will need to build 100,000 new housing units by 2021 in order to keep up with demand. For the past couple of years, the city’s Innovation Team has been exploring an unorthodox solution: allowing residents to repurpose their backyards with the construction of smaller homes, or “accessory dwelling units” (ADU). With nearly half a million single-family homes located within the city of Los Angeles, that’s a lot of potential untapped space.A Fast Company magazine post traces the recent history of Los Angeles’ experiment in backyard housing. The magazine recently declared the Los Angeles Innovation Team’s backyard home experiment the winner in the urban design category of their 2018 World Changing Ideas Awards. But the process began back in 2015, when the Innovation Team was born from a Bloomberg Philanthropies grant and directed by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti to “focus on the growing problem of displacement from rising rents.”The Innovation Team partnered with architects from LA-Más, researchers from UCLA’s CityLab, and one local LA family to set about trying to build a backyard home. Along the way, every step of the process would be examined, from planning to building to securing the proper permits and cutting through the red tape involved. One major step was a bill that removed significant fees required to set up utilities for a backyard home, championed by Mayor Garcetti, which took effect last year.LA isn’t the only town experimenting with tiny homes as a solution to housing problems. San Jose, California, recently held meetings to discuss a possible “tiny homes” program as a means to combat homelessness. Tempe, Arizona, is building a community of 600-square-foot homes that will be available for $130,000 or less.Los Angeles’ backyard home plan is thinking big, with a goal of 10,000 units by 2021. While there is still a long way to go, 2,342 ADU permits were issued in 2017, according to Fast Company. That’s up from only 120 in 2016. They say the longest journey begins with a single step; maybe the resolution to California’s housing shortage will begin with a few thousand tiny backyard houses.

Jack’s mother brought proceedings against the HSE regarding the circumstances of Jack’s birth, in which it was alleged that due to the negligence of the HSE in failing to monitor, read and interpret the CTG monitor during labour, Jack sustained a catastrohic hypoxic insult, and there was a failure to anticipate the need for resuscitation immediately after birth with the result that Jack ‘s brain suffered irreversible and profound hypoxic injury leading to cerebral palsy.Proceedings were initiated by Jack’s parents in 2017, through their Solicitor Jolene McElhinney of McElhinney & Associates and the HSE defended the case fully. Although Jack was still a toddler in 2017, Jack’s parents were adamant that if the circumstances of Jack’s birth confirmed negligence in clinical care, then proceedings should be initiated and prosecuted with all due alacrity to ensure that Jack got the vital multi-disciplinary services and care that he required, as soon as was legally achievable.On the 16th December 2019, the HSE agreed an interim settlement for a period of 10 years in the sum of €2.5 million. In addition, Letterkenny General Hospital issued an apology to Jack’s parents.The interim settlement is before Judge Cross on Friday the 20th December 2019 to be ruled and the parents have expressed relief that this very stressful and frightening time has come to an end, and are also relieved that the settlement will allow them to implement the care support and interventions that Jack needs.The case will come before the courts again in 10 years’ time to re-assess  Jack’s needs for the rest of his life.In a statement, their solicitor says that whilst the apology from the HSE concerning the failures that led to Jack’s devastating injuries is welcome, the family are saddened and weary of the legal process and struggle to understand why it took an adversarial legal process to bring about an explanation, and to procure an apology.

Either way, Phillis looks for a work that reveals something of the artist’s soul.“Something unforgettable,” she said, with a smile. Phillis spent most of Wednesday morning looking at the exhibit, tagging – once, twice — the works that she thought were deserving of awards.“There might be those who disagree with me on the selections because judging is a personal process,” Phillis said. “But I think that this exhibition would be looked upon with respect by any exhibition in the country.”Metzger said Phillis is a highly qualified juror.

They know what to do and they do it well. Even the less experienced artists have something to say.” By Jaine Treadwell Marilyn Hughey Phillis used the phrase, “His eyes shone with the enjoyment of looking” to describe a former art instructor. However, the words could have just as easily described her as she judged the Watercolor Society of Alabama’s 69th Annual Exhibition at the Johnson Center for the Arts on Wednesday.As juror for the exhibition, Phillis selected the show from about 300 submissions from watercolor artists from across the country.From the 100 pieces selected for the Watercolor Society of Alabama’s 69th Annual Exhibition, Phillis chose 17 winners on Wednesday.
