Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Finding reliable dividend stocks in today’s tough markets isn’t easy. But there are still some reliable income shares out there. For this piece, I’ve chosen a diversified mix of five FTSE 100 stocks. Put together, they offer an average forecast yield of 5.5%. I think they could be the best UK shares to buy now for income investors.A healthy performanceSales at pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline rose by 19% to £9.1bn during the first quarter of this year. Adjusted earnings rose by 25% during the same period.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 company did warn that much of this increase was down to stock building and isn’t likely to be sustained during the rest of the year. But even excluding these gains, I think the figures showed good signs of growth across the firm’s main ranges.I’ve covered Glaxo in more depth recently, but in short I think the firm’s improving portfolio and 5% dividend yield offer value for investors. I remain a long-term buyer.Commodities: best share to buy nowI think that most diversified portfolios should have exposure to commodities such as oil, iron ore and copper. Like it or not, these raw materials are still needed to make the world go round.However, I have strict rules about commodity stocks. I only invest in profitable, well-established businesses that pay regular dividends. One stock I like very much in this sector is BHP. This Anglo-Australian group covers all the main commodity classes, thanks to its mix of oil and mining assets.BHP has a strong focus on dividends and this year’s 5.1% payout looks safe to me.Consumer dividendsSome shopping habits don’t change much, even in a recession. The food and cleaning products sold by consumer goods group Unilever are a good example. Brands such as Domestos, Hellmann’s, Dove and Persil aren’t likely to go out of fashion, in my view.Unilever’s star is rising at the moment and the shares don’t look cheap to me. But the stock’s 3.1% dividend is enough to be worthwhile and hasn’t been cut for more than 50 years. I think this is one of the best shares you can buy today.8% yield: better than a bank?Savings and asset management group Legal & General has become one of the biggest players in the bulk annuity pension market in recent years. In 2019 alone, L&G bought up £11.4bn of pension schemes from companies.Despite this strong growth, Legal & General’s cash generation has remained very strong. Last year’s dividend was covered comfortably by surplus cash and there’s no sign yet this year of any change to this situation.This year’s forecast yield of 8.4% should be covered 1.6 times by earnings. I rate Legal & general as an income buy.Utilities: best share to buy nowMy final pick is utility group National Grid. In the UK, this business makes its money from operating the gas and electricity transmission networks. Handily, this means it’s not directly exposed to commodity prices or consumers.The group’s US utility business adds some diversity, although it’s suffered extra costs in this year’s pandemic. The main risk to the dividend is that tougher regulatory settlements will put pressure on profits.Despite this, I think the stock’s 5.5% yield is worth buying for income investors today. 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.

Martin Landajo banned for one week for stamping on Wallaby hands

first_imgTuesday Oct 8, 2013 Martin Landajo banned for one week for stamping on Wallaby hands Puma’s scrumhalf Martin Landajo has been banned for a week for stamping during Argentina’s 54-17 Rugby Championship final round loss to the Wallabies in Rosario on Saturday. He was cautioned by referee Wayne Barnes at the time, but was later cited.  Landajo appeared to be frustrated with the Australian players slowing the ball down, so took his frustrations out on the hands of both Saia Fainga’a and Adam Ashley-Cooper.The latter confronted him angrily, clearly in a bit of pain after receiving some studs on the knuckles.Referee Wayne Barnes had a good view of it, but upon referall to the TMO and seeing some TV replays, he was happy that a talking to and the penalty for the Wallabies should stand.The citing commisioner however deemed it to be a red cad worthy offence, and it was referred to a discplinary hearing, where judicial officer Nigel Hampton said that it was a reckless attempt to free the ball at the back of the ruck.“This was a lower end offence and, given the early guilty plea, Landajo’s contrition and his good playing record, appropriately could be dealt with by a one week suspension,” he explained.Landajo has been suspended from all forms of the game, up to and including 14th October 2013.The other incident of foul play in this match was when Rob Simmons hit Felipe Contepomi off the ball, knocking him to the turf. Simmons received a yellow card for it.View highlights of Argentina vs AustraliaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , The Rugby Championship 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.

The special appeal of this project lies in the appreciation shown for this old outbuilding in the shadows of the Vienna Woods villas. Back in the 1930s, few people could afford a basement, let alone a garage. So they built their own sheds to store wood, raise rabbits or boil laundry.Over the past few decades, these structures have lost their original purpose, and many are falling apart. Converted into small, cozy ‘hideaways’, they become affordable, magical retreats for families and their guests. We inserted a large pane of glass into the front wall of the attic floor and carefully insulated the trusses. The walls were paneled with varnished grey fir, and an elevated section at the rear was upholstered so that the attic can also be used as a guest room. An elegant brass trapdoor closes off this enchanted place, from where you can watch the squirrels play in the treetops. The ground floor is still used for storing garden tools, the lawn mower, and fruit crates, while upstairs it is snug and comfortable.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Andreas BuchbergerSpotlights illuminate the brass in the evening, creating a warm light – even in freezing winter. The attic is ventilated via an already existing window and small air vents installed along the sides. After the war, this villa was the typical weekend house of a middle-class family in post-war Austria. We explained that the parlor and tiled stove were just ballast from the past and gently suggested that the house was somewhat overloaded with rustic kitsch. But where should one start with the ceiling construction? Where should the building show respect for the old, where must the new be radically introduced? Together with the clients, we felt that, from now on, other elements should shape the character of the building. For instance, the gnarled apple trees that blossom behind the house, the old terrazzo floors the color of black pudding, the slippery wooden floors and old double windows.Save this picture!© Andreas BuchbergerThe first sketches showed new routes and visual axes through the orchard and idyllic places that no one had yet discovered. We gave the house a new open structure, a new spatial concept. We took only two radical steps: we had an external wall removed and replaced it with a generously sized but economical pane of glass. Out of three dark little rooms, we made a big, bright, loft-like space that now revealed a view of fruit trees and a magnolia, the pool from the 1950s, and the wooden shed treated with carbolineum. Now children play in small side rooms, the family lounges on an upholstered platform, the kitchen is both open and yet separate. The shed and the house are now connected by an apparently hovering larch deck that is like a kind of open living room from where you can look across the garden. Around the old apple trees, circles were cut out of the deck. When the children look out the spectacular window they see the tops of the fruit trees, illuminated from below at night.Save this picture!© Andreas BuchbergerProject gallerySee allShow lessArthron / Manuel Herz ArchitectsSelected ProjectsLong and Slender / XS Studio for compact designSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883640/the-enchanted-shed-and-leopold-house-franz-and-sue Clipboard Projects Lead Architects: last_img read more

This is the story of Fred, Ben, D&S Planning Studio, an average Victorian and a long, sloping site with development potential located on the corner of Upper Buitengragt and Carisbrook streets. The 653 sqm plot offered the owners a unique opportunity to combine their brief requirements of living, working & rental income within the confines of a singular site.The property has undergone an extended grid overlay, a virtual carving up, a primary division running centrally north to south, along the length of the plot, but further split into eight distinct zones: Victorian house, two storey shed addition, vehicular court and studio unit allocations repeated to both halves.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe two existing mature feature trees flanking the vehicle court have been retained as the green connector canopies of the three distinct building blocks forming the Carisbrook St façade. The stone and steel palisade walls enclosing the Buitengragt and Carisbrook boundaries are of heritage value and have been retained as necessary elements to preserving the authenticity link to street and permitting an openness and life to these edges. The existing Victorian is an ungraded building with many of the original features ignored and altered by the previous unsympathetic owner. The enclosed portion of the existing stope has been removed and restored to colonnaded verandah with a view to re-instating the original street corner aspect. The central passageway forms the internal marker for re-planning the home into a back to back U-shape double dwelling around smaller external courts.Save this picture!Section – LongitudinalThe single gable fronting to street has been extruded across the width of the site and extended spatially to function as the main living spaces to both of units. Supplementary living and en-suite bedrooms form the remainder of the ground floor accommodation. The existing lean-to’s, added over time to the north of the Victorian box, have been demolished to make way for a new two storey shed housing additional living spaces and the client’s communal work-office space. The natural slope of the site assists with de-scaling the shed to a single level overlooking the entrance and vehicle court shared by the office and the two level steel frame studio pods hugging the far northern boundary of the site. The studios themselves combine as a singular shed extrusion but separate in vertical stacks.Save this picture!© Adam LetchInternal space is compact, yet maximised by way of carefully placed double volume pockets affording penetration of light to the earth retained lower level and steeply inclined pitched roof planes allow for ‘room in the roof’ sleeping platforms. Programmatically, the two studio units were completed in the first phase of the project, permitting the owners to vacate the existing house whilst still actively living and working on site during phase two. Materials largely echo those of the original house, corrugated sheet metal and red brick are the dominant throughout and are responsive to and connect with the material palette of Victorian without copying or creating a pastiche of the past.Save this picture!Plan – Ground floorThe typology is that of simple linear shed like forms repeated to frame and contain the open external spaces which in turn serve to separate and define simple, yet distinct building blocks. Working directly with two varied thinking clients on a singularly unifying concept means a considered response to people’s individual preferences, brief and place. The architecture, we believe is one of enthusiasm, conceptually rich and playful, whilst hopefully still addressing the issues of heritage, community, liveability and connection.Save this picture!© Adam LetchProject gallerySee allShow lessIntroducing New Real-Time Architectural Visualization Technologies for Remote Collab…ArticlesGarden Tour / PADSTUDIOSelected Projects Share Year:  “COPY” Photographs Photographs:  Adam Letch Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Adam Letch+ 13Curated by Hana Abdel Share South Africa 2018 CopyHouses•Cape Town, South Africa Projectscenter_img Area:  439 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Architects: Team Architects Area Area of this architecture project 250 Buitengracht House / Team Architects “COPY” ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/953404/250-buitengracht-house-team-architects Clipboard 250 Buitengracht House / Team ArchitectsSave this projectSave250 Buitengracht House / Team Architects CopyAbout this officeTeam ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCape TownOn FacebookSouth AfricaPublished on December 21, 2020Cite: “250 Buitengracht House / Team Architects” 21 Dec 2020.

They were supposed to deliver a report in December 2014 but it was delayed until April. Then we read that it will not be ready until May. It shows they are just buying their time and not considering the lives of the people who are victims of a system we didn’t create.”Meanwhile, Minister of State Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has welcomed the publication of the new International Protection Bill.“There are three separate stages to apply to remain in the state, each with its own application process. This Bill will create a more efficient application process by introducing a single procedure mechanism”, he said.

Admission is charged. In the late afternoon of January 31, 1971, Apollo 14 launched on what was to be the United States third trip to the Moon.Five days later, Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell walked on the Moon while Stuart Roosa, former U.S. Forest Server smoke jumper, orbited above in the command module. In Roosa’s personal kit were hundreds of tree seeds.Ed Cliff, chief of the Forest Service, knew of Roosa as a smoke jumper and contacted him and asked him to take the seeds into space. The seeds selected for experiment were Loblolly Pine, Sycamore, Sweetgum, Redwood and Douglas Fir. Roosa carried about 500 seeds which stayed with him while he orbited the Moon. Skip Barbara Tatom, director of the Pioneer Museum of Alabama, said it is an honor for the museum to be one of four sites in Alabama chosen for the planting of a Moon Tree.“A sycamore was planted at Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Loblolly Pines were planted at the State Capitol in Montgomery, at Ivy Green in Tuscumbia and, of course, here at the Pioneer Museum of Alabama.”A Loblolly was planted the White House in Washington, in Washington Square in Philadelphia, at Valley Forge, in the International Forest of Friends and at various universities and NASA centers.Moon Trees were also planted in Brazil, Switzerland and presented to the Emperor of Japan. Sponsored Content When the Apollo 14 returned to Earth, the seeds were germinated by the Forest Service and christened “Moon Trees.”The seedlings were planted throughout the United States usually as a part of the nation’s bicentennial in 1976.Four of those seedlings were planted in Alabama, all during 1976.
