Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Buying cheap UK shares regularly may not seem to be a sound means of making a million. That’s especially the case after the recent market crash, and with there being a number of risks that could cause a further downturn in share prices.However, by investing in high-quality businesses regularly through a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA, you could obtain a seven-figure portfolio. As such, it may be a better option than buying Bitcoin at the present time.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…Regular investing in UK sharesInvesting regularly in UK shares could lead to surprisingly large returns in the long run. The FTSE 250, for example, has returned around 8% per annum over the past 20 years on a total return basis. Therefore, through buying small amounts often, you could benefit from the long-term growth potential of the stock market.For example, assuming an investment of £750 per month in the FTSE 250 that generates 8% per annum over a 30-year period, you could have a portfolio valued at over £1m. Certainly, between now and the end of that period there are likely to be a number of bear markets that cause the value of your portfolio to decline temporarily. However, history shows that the stock market has always recovered from even the very worst declines. As such, by maintaining regular investments in UK shares, you could build a surprisingly large nest egg.Buying high-quality stocks at bargain pricesBuying high-quality UK shares at cheap prices could be a means of obtaining even higher returns in the long run. At the present time, a number of strong businesses that are dominant in their industry are trading on low valuations due to the potential for a second market crash. This has caused weak investor sentiment that may enable you to obtain wide margins of safety that lead to more impressive capital gains in the long run.Certainly, there is a chance that buying shares today will lead to paper losses in the short run due to the risks facing UK investors. However, a second market crash could be beneficial to regular investors with long-term outlooks as it will allow you to buy high-quality businesses at even lower prices to gain even further from a likely recovery for UK shares.Bitcoin’s appealBitcoin’s recent rising price understandably makes it seem attractive to investors who are doubting the prospects for UK shares. However, the stock market has been in similar situations previously, and has proven to be a reliable means for many investors to build £1m+ ISA portfolios.Furthermore, with Bitcoin lacking fundamentals, facing regulatory risks and being of a limited size, its long-term prospects appear challenging. As such, now could be the right time to start buying high-quality FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares to benefit from the stock market’s long-term recovery potential.

Bizarre Richard Haughton Try vs Glasgow

first_imgSunday Jan 20, 2008 Bizarre Richard Haughton Try vs Glasgow Saracens met Glasgow in a Round 6 Heineken Cup encounter that was played in howling wind and rain on Friday night in Scotland.Less than 5 minutes into the game Glasgow Warrior Hefin O’Hare nearly profited when Richard Haughton hesitated on defence, hoping a high kick would go out. But, after racing onto the bouncing ball the former rugby league man O’Hare just put a foot in touch and was rightly called back.The incident seemed to wake the Saracens speedster Haughton up and when Jackson drilled a low kick into the Glasgow touch-in-goal area, it was this time O’Hare’s turn to hesitate, as he waited for the ball to run dead.Haughton used his express pace to hunt down the ball and the Television Match Official ruled he had dived to touch down millimetres inside the line.

AWJ set to be Lions skipper as fans eagerly await Gatland squad announcement

first_imgThursday May 6, 2021 AWJ set to be Lions skipper as fans eagerly await Gatland squad announcement Alun Wyn Jones is expected to be named British and Irish Lions captain for the summer tour to South Africa at lunchtime today.ADVERTISEMENTThe game’s most capped player with 157 Test appearances is clear favourite for the role ahead of closest rival Maro Itoje after leading Wales to success in the recent Six Nations.It would be the 35-year-old’s fourth tour, although his role as skipper in the squad announced by Warren Gatland would not guarantee a place in the Test team.Gatland will name a group of 36 – 20 forwards and 16 backs – at an announcement that is being streamed live online with players discovering for the first time if they have been selected.One of the biggest calls facing Gatland is whether to include Manu Tuilagi, whose comeback from an Achilles injury in time for the final phase of Sale’s title push is imminent.The powerful England centre has not played since September, ruling him out of the autumn and Six Nations and making his inclusion a risk, but Gatland will be aware of his unique ability to break the gainline and may decide he is worth the gamble.The loss of George North to a knee injury has thinned Gatland’s midfield options and Tuilagi would potentially be a more explosive alternative.ADVERTISEMENTIreland captain Johnny Sexton could be one of the biggest casualties due to his ongoing issues with concussion that have limited his game time since the Six Nations.His absence would open up a vacancy at fly-half, possibly for Finn Russell of Scotland with Wales’ Dan Biggar expected to tour and Owen Farrell likely to travel as a centre.Marcus Smith has been shredding defences for Harlequins this season and the uncapped 22-year-old is among an extended group of over 50 players to have been notified that they are under consideration.It would be a seismic call for Smith to be included among the 36, however, given he has yet to make his England debut.ADVERTISEMENTHarlequins’ mid-season resurgence has propelled Danny Care into contention at scrum-half three years after the 34-year-old veteran of 84 caps fell out of favour under Eddie Jones.Care has formed the Gallagher Premiership’s most creative half-back partnership alongside Smith and he could profit from Ben Youngs ruling himself out of consideration.

Beyond the Screen is a new type of residential complex, located in Naebalsan-dong, Seoul. The existing condition of this residential neighborhood is no different from most other neighborhoods, with multi-plex housing having held the majority. The aim of this project was to offer a compact spatial richness for living, while finding new architectural solutions in satisfying the specific needs of the user, client, as well as contributing to the improvement of the typically generic townscape so familiar in Korea. Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe building sits at a corner condition and is formed by a cutting and shaping of the volume by influences of the site regulations such as setback lines and natural light requirements. The outer appearance is a single mass, however, it is actually two masses bridged by a semi-exterior central stairwell with a unique brick screen to the front and back, forming an H-shaped plan, with a skipped floor structure from the east to west. This five-story building incorporates both residential and commercial functions – the first floor with a café and a piloti parking space, and from the second to fifth floors, four different unit types making up 14 different units in total.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinFrom a user’s perspective, the design took into consideration the following four points: 1. Courtyard: Upon entering the building, one encounters the courtyard with a semi-exterior stairwell that provides access to each of the 14 units, with a unique brick screen to the front and back. This screen filters the view into the building from the front, while allowing for the right amount of natural light and ventilation, creating a far more pleasant atmosphere in and around a stairwell. The sun light that filters through the bricks makes for a lovely courtyard, allowing for an atmospheric transformation throughout the day, every day. 2. Natural Ventilation: By splitting the building into two volumes, it allows all of the units to have 3 open sides, maximizing the natural cross ventilation throughout. 3. Roof Garden: The roof garden is open to the sky, with a parapet wall at full-floor height, creating a private communal space for the residents. 4. Privacy: The brick screen walls, in their orderly staggered stacking construction, allows for privacy from the exterior gaze of the adjacent buildings into the semi-exterior, semi-public core of the building. This filter is applied, not only in the central core zone, but at specific moments where the building closely faces adjacent buildings. This adds to the privacy of each unit, while allowing for the residents of each unit the flexibility in ventilation, allowing each unit to breathe naturally.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe design also takes into consideration the client’s point of view, with an attempt to satisfy cost efficiency and profitability through quality design: 1. Area: The skipped floor structure allows residents to enter their units directly from the stair landings, eliminating unnecessary, dead public hallway space, and maximizing the area for exclusive use. 2. Cost Efficiency: With a limited construction budget, but aiming to satisfy all of the essentials for living, the design of the building and the units focused on only the absolute necessities, without being superfluous with custom materials and built-in furniture, but with quality materials and fixtures that were economical. 3. Unique: In order to provide the client with something new and different from the monotonous characteristics of the area, their needs were met through a quality of design that allows the building to stand apart within the existing streetscape of multi-family housing, both formally and in function, resulting in a new type of residential experience and use.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinAs designers, there was a need to find a new architectural solution for the unexpected and unplanned, such as the following: 1. Equipment: It is quite common for residential buildings to attach and expose air conditioning equipment on the exterior of the building. In order to keep to the intended design of all four elevations of the building, spaces were allotted for such equipment into the overall plan of the building, as well as an application of the brick screen system for ventilation and air circulation for HVAC. 2. Ad-Hoc Expansion: To avoid illegal additions and extensions to the original design of the building in the future, which is a common practice in Korea, especially to buildings lacking a specific logic, there was a great focus in efficient spatial planning and design to allow for longevity in the initial design intentions and the spatial organization of the building. 3. Harmonized Distinction: A unique design calls attention from its surrounding neighbors and residents in sparking an interest in a new design sensibility, and to form and awareness and appreciation for beautiful buildings and well designed spaces for living. Due to the changes of living patterns in the city, the number of single to double occupancy living units has grown. Rather than contribute to the increase of thoughtless and monotonous residential typology, the focus of Beyond the Screen was to provide new architectural design solutions to improve the quality of compact living through and enrichment of spatial qualities and functions.Save this picture!Fisrt Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVan Alen Institute Announces Ground/Work Competition FinalistsArchitecture NewsAD Interviews: Reinier de GraafInterviewsProject locationAddress:Seoul, South KoreaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Farm Bureau Supports Cattle Market Transparency

first_img The American Farm Bureau Federation is calling on lawmakers to require increased transparency in America’s cattle markets. AFBF supports the Cattle Market Transparency Act of 2021, sponsored by Sens. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). The bill focuses on ensuring robust regionally negotiated cash trade and providing producers with more pricing information.The Cattle Market Transparency Act aligns with the goals set forth by the AFBF Cattle Market Working Group in 2020, as well as new cattle marketing policy passed at Farm Bureau’s Virtual Annual Convention earlier this year. The Cattle Market Working Group, comprised of 10 state Farm Bureau presidents, spent more than two months investigating factors that led to market disruptions following the Holcomb packing plant fire and the COVID-19 pandemic.“America’s ranchers don’t control the prices they are paid for their products and those raising livestock have legitimate questions about pricing. When the pandemic hit, meat prices at grocery stores went up while the prices paid to farmers fell through the floor. This legislation will ensure farmers and ranchers have fair access to markets and are fully informed on pricing so they can continue to put food on the table in homes across the country,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “We appreciate Senator Fischer and Senator Wyden for introducing the Cattle Market Transparency Act of 2021 and look forward to working with members of the House on a companion bill introduction.”Read the AFBF Cattle Market Working Group Report.

New threat against The Shift News in Malta highlights growing international abuse of defamation laws

first_img RSF_en Help by sharing this information News March 2, 2018 Find out more On 6 March 2019, The Shift News received a letter from London law firm Simons Muirhead & Burton, on behalf of Russian banker Ruben Vardanyan, demanding the removal of an article published on 4 March under the headline “Troika laundromat: How the Russians moved their money into the west”.The article published by The Shift News reported on the ‘Troika Laundromat’ revelations made by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), exposing a complex money-laundering scheme centred around Russian private investment bank Troika Dialog, once led by Vardanyan. The letter from Simons Muirhead & Burton claimed the article had “potentially very serious adverse implications” for Vardanyan, and the firm stated: “We require the immediate removal of the article”.The Shift News has emerged as one of the only outlets in Malta that continues to pursue in-depth investigative journalism into risky topics such as corruption in the aftermath of the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in October 2017. It has faced a number of previous threats of defamation suits, including from London-based global citizenship and residency advisory firm Henley & Partners, and has refused to comply with all requests to remove content. The Shift News has stated it will also not comply with Vardanyan’s demand.“We condemn this new threat as the latest in a long series of attempts to pressure The Shift News, which courageously continues to pursue risky investigative reporting that others don’t dare touch in Malta. It also highlights the growing international abuse of defamation laws to silence public interest investigative reporting – far too often with involvement from London-based firms in what amounts to attempts to censor independent media”, said RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent.Defamation law has been extensively abused in Malta, where a total of 27 defamation cases continue to be pursued posthumously against Daphne Caruana Galizia more than 16 months after her assassination. These include a case filed by Prime Minister Joseph Muscat – who is also pursuing a defamation suit against her son Matthew Caruana Galizia – as well as two cases filed by Muscat’s chief of staff Keith Schembri, and one case brought by Minister for Tourism Konrad Mizzi, who today dropped two other cases against Caruana Galizia linked to her Panama Papers reporting.On 4 March, RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent took part in a workshop at the University of Aberdeen School of Law, where international experts examined the increasing use of Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPs), with the cases against The Shift News and Daphne Caruana Galizia highlighted as case studies. RSF and other participants committed to exploring further possible collaboration to address the growing threats posed to journalism and to broader press freedom by the abuse of defamation laws.Malta is ranked 65th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Why Student Debt May Not Hinder Homeownership

first_img Why Student Debt May Not Hinder Homeownership Student debt has long been thought to hinder new homeowners from entering the housing market, but recent data from Fannie Mae shows that this may not be a factor anymore.The report says that according the Federal Reserve, total student debt in America has more than tripled in the last decade to more than $1.3 trillion in April. Meanwhile, the U.S. homeownership rate is near a 48-year low at 63.5 percent, according to the Commerce Department’s report for the first three months of this year.According to the report and data from Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey, potential buyers with student loans who received a bachelor’s degree, or a higher level of education, are found to be 27 percent more likely to be homeowners than those who are high school graduates who didn’t attend college and therefore have no student debts.This study notes that the issue of student debt is likely to affect the homeownership rates of certain groups of people more than others. For example, those who completed at least a bachelor’s degree without student debt were 43 percent more likely to be homeowners than high school graduates who didn’t attend college and don’t have student debt.“Before we ran this analysis, we knew [student debt] would likely hurt homeownership rate, but we didn’t know to what degree,” says Qiang Cai, an economist with Fannie Mae.The report still states thought that while student debt may delay homeownership, it doesn’t eliminate the idea altogether. For example, renters ages 25 to 44 with student debt are shown to be 28 percent less likely to buy rather than rent their next home compared to those without student loans.While graduating debt-free makes owning a home easier, the report states that economists across the board agree over the importance of a college degree when it comes to unemployment and income levels. Likewise, another study about homeownership and student debt by the Federal Reserve looked at credit reports and data on college attendance from the National Student Clearinghouse. The study shows there’s a major gap in homeownership between those who do and don’t go to college, similar to the results found from the Fannie Mae study.
