ISA investing: a top FTSE 100 share I plan to own for 10 years!

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images Royston Wild owns shares of Diageo. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I think Diageo (LSE: DGE) is a perfect FTSE 100 pick for those seeking sustained long-term profits growth. That’s even though recent data suggests that younger generations are drinking less than their predecessors. A Berenberg report in 2018 showed that teenagers and people in their early 20s are consuming lower amounts of alcohol than millennials.I feel that Diageo can prosper despite this threat for a number of reasons. One of them is the brand power of its products like Captain Morgan rum, Guinness stout and Smirnoff vodka. These are the sort of heavyweight labels in which the FTSE 100 firm has the resources to turbocharge investment to keep growing market share.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…Ready to goThere’s also the fact that Diageo is exceptionally effective and rapid when it comes to embracing new consumer trends to keep the bottom line moving. Product development in the field in premium-priced drinks has paid off handsomely in recent years. The company’s also taking steps to clutch the fast-growing ‘ready to drink’ alcoholic beverages market.Industry analysts over at ING Bank note that this market “has seen significant growth over the last few years driven by consumer demand for more convenience and healthier alternatives”. It says the ready-to-drink segment grew at a compound average rate of 8% in the five years to 2019. This is better than the 5% rise that the broader alcoholic beverages market experienced over the period.Yet ING says that the ready-to-drink sector still accounts for just 2% of the total alcohol market today. This gives FTSE 100-quoted Diageo plenty of room to exploit. Market intelligence body The IWSR thinks that the ready-to-drink market will grow by 41% between 2019 and 2024.A stress-free FTSE 100 shareIt’s no surprise in my opinion that City analysts think Diageo’s going to snap straight back into earnings growth after last year’s bottom-line reversal. Current forecasts suggest that earnings will rise 3% and 11% in the fiscal years to June 2021 and 2022 respectively.These bright forecasts — along with the company’s robust balance sheet — mean that Diageo’s long record of lifting dividends each year is expected to continue. Consequently the FTSE 100 share has yields of 2.4% and 2.5% for this financial year and next.It’s worth mentioning that the drinks maker’s shares don’t come cheap. At current prices around £29.80 per share Diageo trades on an elevated forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 31 times. Such high valuations could lead to a sharp share price correction if the firm’s projected growth trajectory starts to look a little wobbly.That said, I believe that Diageo’s shares are worth such a heady premium today. I myself bought the company for my ISA because of its leading position in many major drinks categories across the globe. In my opinion, it’s a good stock for investors like me seeking robust long-term shareholder returns, despite the high price and risk of declining alcohol consumption in some markets.

Joe Marler questions referee Andrew Small’s choice of footwear

first_imgWednesday Apr 2, 2014 Joe Marler questions referee Andrew Small’s choice of footwear Along with Nick Cummins, Joe Marler is probably the most amusing rugby player (that the public have access to) on the planet these days. He’s a fascinating character, loves the banter, and clearly isn’t afraid to take the mickey out of the referee during the match. If you’ve watched any of the O2 Inside Line episodes of behind the scenes England camp clips you’ll more than likely agree that Marler needs to get in front of the camera more. As with James Haskell and the Honey Badger, something funny always seems to happen. Professional sport needs these characters and thanks to social media and the increased presence of official team video uploads, we’re now exposed to the complex minds of these great athletes. In this case Marler gave referee Andrew Small a bit of stick for wearing white boots, and rightly so. Great work from our man Nick Heath on the commentry too. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies , See it to Believe it Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Brick Vault House / Space Popular

first_imgArchDaily Save this picture!© Mariela Apollonio+ 37Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/937285/brick-vault-house-space-popular Clipboard CopyHouses•Santa Bárbara, Spain Year:  Photographs:  Mariela Apollonio Collaborating Architects:Estudio Alberto Burgos, Javier Cortina MaruendaCity:Santa BárbaraCountry:SpainMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Mariela ApollonioText description provided by the architects. The Brick Vault House is a prototype for suburban house construction that integrates industrialised construction methods with traditional craftsmanship in Valencia, Spain. It is designed by Space Popular in response to a commission from a local developer, and in collaboration with Estudio Alberto Burgos and Javier Cortinal Maruenda. Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioThe driving design principles of the Brick Vault House respond to regionally available construction techniques –both traditional and contemporary– and the Spanish Mediterranean climate. It is organised around a structural grid system, which allowed us to resolve the typical construction details so that future houses could have different configurations, avoiding replication but still maintaining some level of standardisation. The character of the house is given by its structural materials –the green steel frame and exposed load-bearing brick vaults present throughout all spaces, and its irregular modular layout –creating numerous porches and terraces as well as varying views. The house responds to its context by adopting local construction methods both old and new. Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioSave this picture!Site planThis instance of Brick Vault House is built on a sloped plot, which allowed us to create an experiential sequence through which the scale and features of the house are revealed progressively. As you enter what looks like a half-sunken two storey house, you are directed towards the entrance of the house which is also the circulation core where you find the staircase. Around it, the different spaces are organised without the need for corridors. The shifting floor plates create a rich sequence of viewpoints, and therefore areas with the very distinct visual character within the modular system. Having a variety of spatial qualities and views around which to structure your daily life is something we strive for. The place where you sit in the morning for breakfast could have a different feel to where you spend your afternoon, and your summer and winter routines could make use of spaces differently configured.Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Mariela ApollonioThe structure of the house consists of a green steel space-frame filled with exposed load-bearing brick vaults and white drywall facades. Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioThe steel space-frame –100x100mm square tube– follows a grid of 375x375cm in plan and 316cm height, which we found to be most appropriate for domestic spaces and local planning constraints and defines the overall volume of the building. The steel structure was put up on site in a matter of days with just a scissor lift, no cranes or scaffolding needed. Once completed, the brick craftsmen could use it as the scaffolding. The brick vaults are load bearing and float over the steel structure, being detached from it so that each material can settle at its own pace. This type of brick vault, which dates back to the 13th century and was popularised by Rafael Guastavino in the 19th century, requires no formwork. Instead, it relies on the recipe of the gesso so that each brick is bonded in place instantly without any additional support. Although there are faster and more efficient slab construction methods today, we chose this system for its combination of environmental materials and the promotion of skilled hand-craft on site. Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioSave this picture!© Mariela ApollonioWithin the grid, only some modules are filled, creating generous covered outdoor areas that allow for energy-efficient large windows that let the sun in during winter and are shaded during the summer. This provides seamless indoor-outdoor living, which we consider an opportunity not to be missed when designing for mild climates. The grid is also a unifying element throughout the house. We think one feels more at ease living in spaces where the way it all comes together can be easily discerned. The green blends with the vegetation, it is balanced against the shifting hues of the sky, and it is a colour often found in domestic interiors in small amounts through indoor plants. The load-bearing brick vaults become the main interior feature, giving a sense of expansion and lightness, as well as warmth. The remaining finishes are basic and affordable, providing a neutral canvas over which each tenant can overlay their preferred style and make themselves at home. In this way, The Brick Vault House achieves a balance between giving character to a house and still leaving enough room for personal customisation. We tried to portray a version of a lived house in the photographs –by Mariela Apollonio– by bringing in furniture –kindly lent to us by Teulat– but we look forward to seeing the house transformed by its occupants, in fact, we think it will only be complete and at its best then.Save this picture!© Mariela ApollonioProject gallerySee allShow lessLatest Images Reveal Near Completed MVRDV’s Art Depot for Museum Boijmans Van BeuningenArchitecture NewsFairy Tales Competition Announces 2020 WinnersArchitecture News Share Architects: Estudio Alberto Burgos, Javier Cortina Maruenda, Space Popular Area Area of this architecture project Spain “COPY” Brick Vault House / Space Popular CopyAbout this officeSpace PopularOfficeFollowEstudio Alberto BurgosOfficeFollowJavier Cortina MaruendaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta BarbaraOn InstagramOn FacebookSanta BárbaraSpainPublished on April 09, 2020Cite: “Brick Vault House / Space Popular” 09 Apr 2020.

SGA president proposes adding Intentional Dialogue program to Intro to University Life curriculum

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Last year, 85 percent of freshmen completed the non-mandatory course.“I believe it would be relatively easy to get the faculty certified in this training program and it would be a good way to effectively reach, in the small group setting of UNPR, a wide amount of our students,” Taylor said.  “It’s a good way to balance reach with the effectiveness of the program.”The Intentional Dialogue program’s main purpose is to teach students how to have real conversations across differences to enhance community relations.Sophomore pre-med student Akua Jonah said diversity and inclusion is a major issue on campus.“I think the fact that you can walk into a room and most of the people are the same race means there is an issue with inclusion,” Jonah said. “Even if you walk into a cafeteria where everyone is invited and all except for five people look the same, there is definitely an issue there.”According to data from the TCU Factbook, 70 percent of students are white, 13 percent are Hispanic and Latino and only five percent of the student body is African American.

Taylor said he hopes his initiative will prevent similar situations from occurring on campus in the future.The program was started by Intentional Dialogue committee chair and facilitator Ebony Rose in 2016 with hopes to handle conflict in residence halls, but has slowly grown to impact the campus as a whole.“Small groups, typically less than 10 people, sit together during a two-hour process where you learn about what dialogue is and how to have effective dialogue across differences,” Taylor said. “It’s a very useful tool in becoming comfortable in having a productive conversation, which is what college is all about. This is a tool that equips students for the real world and how to interact with each other during the college experience.”However, the program is not required for all students. Currently, the program is limited to student leadership positions on campus like Frog Camp facilitators and orientation leaders.But Taylor wants all incoming students to be prepared for all unanticipated situations of discourse and to participate in intentional dialogue training.Former two-time Frog Camp facilitator Remi Swensson supported Taylor’s proposition and benefited from the training, she said.“Especially when working with other facilitators through the dialogue, you are able to get feedback,” Swensson said. “When you practice your small group facilitation, it gives you confidence. I also think that you’re more prepared when things don’t go how you expect.”She said the dialogue provides you with the tools that are important to have when dealing with a diverse group of students.Swensson went through three different versions of the training: the new facilitator training, the four-week first-year experience training and QPR training.“With the new facilitator training, you bond with new facilitators,” Swensson said. “You talk about worries coming in as a new facilitator. You work on your communication skills since you are working with kids that are basically your same age.”The four-week training is required for all First-Year Experience staff and it teaches facilitation skills such as leading in groups, how to take a follower’s role in a group and the importance of how to go with the flow.Students in SGA discuss how to make campus more inclusive during their weekly meeting. Photo taken on Jan. 29 in Fort Worth, Texas by Robbie Vaglio.Swensson believes the QPR training is the most important of the three. QPR is an acronym for question, persuade and refer, focusing on suicide prevention.“QPR equips you with the strategies to deal with kids that are struggling emotionally and may not want to open up to you,” Swensson said.From the program’s beginning, Rose has tried to expand the program to all students. “Regardless of how campus climate moves or shifts, the need to be trained to speak with your community will never go away,” Rose said in a 2017 interview.Jonah said she supports Taylor’s initiative. She recently participated in the program in her Women and Gender Studies class.“I think it’s a great idea,” Jonah said. “The dialogue program is fantastic and I learned a lot from it. I think it would be cool to spread that campus-wide, where the entire campus is having conversations about controversial issues.”However, sophomore engineering major Daniel Duplan is worried about the new program.“Students will feel like they need to include people instead of just doing it,” Duplan said. “It’s going to become more of a necessity. It’s more of including people because that’s what I was taught to do. I don’t think it would be very genuine.”Taylor’s vision on revamping diversity and inclusion on campus is not limited to Intentional Dialogue.“In about a month and a half, me and my director of diversity and inclusion, Heidi Nguyen, are working to bring a program called Dialogues on Diversity to campus,” Taylor said. “They present diversity issues in an educational and comedic way.”Taylor also hopes to bring former government officials to campus to speak to students in the near future in hopes to further address questions of diversity and inclusion on campus. He has his eyes on former members of the Obama Administration and Republican-affiliated individuals.“Last year, our theme was about being a part of the Horned Frog community, even with our different viewpoints on the world,” Taylor said. “This year, I want to build on that. Because we are part of the Horned Frog community, what obligations do we have for each other?”last_img read more

Turkey: Blatant disregard for fair trial rights as Altan’s entire defense team expelled in free expression case

first_imgNews April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Organisation to go further Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Related documents altans_case_statement_turkce.pdfPDF – 369.33 KBamicus_altans_v_turkey.pdfPDF – 643.32 KB Read in TurkishARTICLE 19, PEN International, PEN Norway and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemn this clear violation of fair trial rights and call for their immediate release, and for all charges to be dropped. The trial, in which the defendants are accused of “preparing the ground” for the failed coup in July 2016 on the basis of their criticism of the government, forms part of a wave of arrests and trials of thinkers, writers and journalists aiming to silence political dissent following the coup attempt. “This is the first time in 40 years as defense counsel that I have been expelled from court for trying to carry out my duty as a lawyer to defend my client,” said Ergin Cinmen, the head of the Altan’s defense team. He had argued that the defence had the right to see all of the evidence against their clients prior to the prosecutor presenting his final sentencing opinion. After his expulsion by the judge, the three other defense lawyers for the Altans were subsequently expelled from the court by the judge after requesting he recuse himself on the basis of manifest partiality. The judge rejected their right to speak and upon their protest, ejected them for the court for the rest of the day’s hearing. In the absence of their defence lawyers, the Altans requested their release on bail but this was once again rejected. Ilicak’s request for release was also denied. At the interim decision, the judge also admitted the Parliament of Turkey as a co-plaintiff against the journalists. The Altans are charged with attempting to overthrow the constitution, the parliament and the government through violence or force, while the evidence presented consists of their expression. These charges are considered “catalogue crimes” in Turkey, which means that defendants are held in pre-trial detention without consideration of flight risk. The Supreme Court of Appeals of Turkey ruled in another case on 14 July 2017 that these charges require the elements of violence and force to be present and cannot consist of expression alone, without proof that the defendant had prior knowledge of the crime, in this case the coup attempt, and was acting under orders of a terrorist organisation. In a further concerning development, the prosecutor in the case has recently been changed. “The fact that the composition of the court keeps changing is another violation of due process,” said Burhan Sönmez, Board Member of PEN International. “The judge in the cases has in his treatment of the defense counsel and the defendants consistently demonstrated his bias against them,” said Pierre Haski, President of RSF. “The Altan brothers and Ilicak are being tried purely on the basis of the exercise of their right to freedom of expression and must be immediately released”; said Katie Morris, Head of Europe and Central Asia Programme at ARTICLE 19, “The denial of their right to a fair trial by Turkey’s judicial system demonstrates the heavy price that Turkish journalists and writers pay for doing their work and undoubtedly has a chilling effect on expression more widely in the country”. Ahmet and Mehmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak are also still subjected to extraordinary restrictions in their access to lawyers who they are only allowed to meet with once a week under surveillance. We reiterate our call for the immediate release of Ahmet and Mehmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak, and for all charges to be dropped. Other resources on the case: ARTICLE 19, PEN International, PEN Norway and RSF jointly intervened as third parties in the Altans and Ilicak cases before the European Court of Human Rights outlining the implications of the case for freedom of expression under the ongoing State of Emergency in Turkey. ARTICLE 19 also submitted an expert opinion in the case at the domestic level at the opening hearing in June.

Capital (“H.I.G.”), a leading global alternative investment firm with $43 billion of equity capital under management, is pleased to announce that its affiliate, H.I.G. Realty Partners, has originated a loan to finance the redevelopment of Pegasus Park (the “Property”), a 5-building, 23-acre campus located 5 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, Texas. The project, which is adjacent to the Medical District and anchored by UT Southwestern, was publicly announced in July 2020 and is already 60% pre-leased. The loan was made to a joint venture between entities owned by J.

Million Dollar ZIPs

first_img August 21, 2017 1,588 Views Increasing home prices aren’t a trend that just the middle and lower classes are experiencing—those in the million-dollar range are noticing, too. In fact, some of those that used to not have million-dollar price tags now do, according to research by Zillow.Zillow examined the distribution of single-family home and condominium Zestimates across 29,991 different ZIP codes starting in 2007, considering areas with more than 10 percent of properties valued at 1 million or more to be a million-dollar area for the year. Compared to the national Zillow Home Value Index, which rests at $200,000, the average million-dollar ZIP had a Zillow Home Value Index of $900,584.In 2007, there were 1,108 ZIP codes (3.77 percent of all examined) that were considered “million-dollar ZIPs”. Though in 2014 that figure had decreased to 958 (3.26 percent), that number has now increased to 1,280 (4.35 percent) as of May of this year. .Property values are a big factor in million-dollar ZIP codes, with many concentrated in coastal markets. According to Zillow, of the 346 ZIP codes that were considered million-dollar ZIPs, 114 (32.9 percent) are on the West Coast in Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; San Francisco, California; San Jose, California; Los Angeles, California; and San Diego, California. On the East Coast, New York, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Miami, Florida; and Washington, D.C. made up another 92 new million-dollar ZIPS (26.6 percent).However, Zillow explained that this growth is furthering the divergence in affordability between costal and interior cities. “Tech hubs” are largely considered million-dollar ZIPs with San Francisco (74 percent) and San Jose (77 percent) leading the way leaving other coastal ZIP codes to catch up. Seattle, for an example of a tech hub, has almost doubled it’s million-dollar ZIP codes from 2007’s 19 ZIP codes to now 38, which is 24 percent of the areas total ZIP codes.To see the full article and take a look at your specific metro, click here.

The Value of Rent Payment Reporting

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Rent reporting to credit bureaus can more renters to make payments on time according to a survey by TransUnion.The survey, which includes responses from 1,330 current renters in the U.S. found that 73% of renters would be more likely to make on-time payments if property managers reported rent payments to a credit bureau. When given a choice between two similar properties, the survey found that 67% of renters in the survey said they would choose the rental unit with reporting already in place.Underlining the importance of on-time payments for both property owners and renters, the survey revealed that nearly 82% of management companies would report rent payment if that would incentivize consumers to pay timely.”Property managers that offer rent payment reporting are incentivizing residents to pay on-time because there is a tangible benefit,” said Maitri Johnson, VP of Multifamily at TransUnion. “Consumers that pay their rent on time – especially those who are younger and new to credit – can see this alternative data source help them to build their credit history towards a more secure financial future.”In fact, the survey revealed that rent reporting could also benefit subprime consumers. It found that consumers falling in this category were likely to see their credit scores increasing by “as much as 26 basis points,” following a year of rent payment reporting. Additionally, rent reporting helped 100% of consumers whose credit scores were unscorable at the time of application to “become scorable.””We are bringing more awareness to the prospect of rent payment reporting because both renters and property managers can reap the benefits of this practice,” Johnson said.When asked if they would report rent to avoid evictions, 82% of the respondents said that they would report payments if it would lower the risk of evictions or renters who skip payments. Furthermore, over 84% of property owners said that they would report the resident’s rent payments to the credit bureau if it attracted more renters who paid on time.
