Kevin Godbold | Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 | More on: AZN ULVR Although the recent stock market falls are uncomfortable, I reckon it’s a good idea to resist the urge to sell up and run for the hills.Warren Buffett, for example, is known for buying the shares of quality businesses when they are ‘on sale’. And to do that, he buys when others are scared away, such as right now. I’m keen on the following FTSE 100 shares. And my guess is that when the COVID-19 coronavirus fades from our collective consciousness, these two stocks will be making new highs.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…PharmaceuticalsThe share price of pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) has fared better than many stocks in the recent market rout. Indeed, as I write, it’s only about 11% down from its recent highs.And I think the stock market is right to be lenient on the company. In the middle of a health scare, holding the shares of pharmaceutical companies seems like a good idea, at least superficially. But in general, the firm tends to have a high degree of defensiveness to its operations. Cash flow has been stable over the past few years and backs up profits well.I reckon the company’s business is far less vulnerable to the effects of general economic cycles than those of many others, such as oil companies, retailers, and banks. In the full-year results report delivered on 14 February, the company said it enjoyed a year of “strong” revenue growth.  New medicines were launched from the R&D pipeline and the firm expects such positive trends to continue in 2020.For a long time, I’ve seen the stock as a decent long-term hold and any weakness is a buying opportunity for me. With the recent share price of 7,055p, the forward-looking dividend yield for 2021 is just over 3%.Fast-moving consumer goodsTo me, Unilever (LSE: ULVR) is the king of fast-moving consumer goods on the London stock market. And I find the sector attractive because cash flow can be steady, driven by customers who return often to repeat-purchase due to loyalty to the firm’s brands.  The share price has been generally slipping for around six months. And now it’s around 17% lower than its peak last autumn. But I don’t think the move lower is much to worry about. The attractions of the company are widely known and the valuation tends to get ahead of itself from time to time. So weakness now could just be a correction that’s worth having. At the recent price of 4,166p, the forward-looking dividend yield for 2021 is knocking on the door of 4%, which I see as attractive.At times such as these, I’m tempted to buy shares in Unilever to lock that rising income stream into my portfolio. And I’d aim to hold the shares for the long haul.  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.

Over the last three months, its price has risen from around $1,700 per ounce to around $1,950.Plenty of industry experts think the yellow metal can rise much higher. For example, analysts at Goldman Sachs recently raised their target for gold to $2,300, citing concerns over the longevity of the US dollar as a reserve currency.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…Meanwhile, Tawhid Abdullah, chairman of Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group, recently said he thinks the gold price could hit $2,500 per ounce in the not-too-distant future.If you’re bullish on gold, and expect it to keep rising, there are a number of ways you can potentially profit. Here’s a look at three simple ways to take advantage of a rising gold price.The easiest way to invest in goldWithout doubt, the most straightforward way is through exchange-traded products (ETPs). These are securities listed on the stock market and designed to track the price of gold.Gold ETPs offer investors a number of advantages. Firstly, you can buy and sell them just like regular stocks, meaning they offer a very easy way to gain exposure to the gold price. Secondly, you can hold them within an ISA or SIPP, meaning all gains can be tax-free. Third, they’re very cost effective. Fees on gold ETPs tend to be very low.Some examples of gold ETPs include WisdomTree Physical Gold and iShares Physical Gold.Own physical goldAnother approach to investing is to buy physical gold from a dealer. You can buy gold bullion bars and coins online, or through high street dealers.On the downside, however, you’ll have to find somewhere to store your gold securely. Transactions costs are also high.Mining stocks: a leveraged bet on the gold priceFinally, you could also consider investing in UK gold mining stocks, companies that are involved in gold production and trade on the stock market.The advantage here is that they can actually outperform the gold price when it’s rising. This is because a rise in the gold price can have a dramatic affect on the profitability of gold companies. If the gold price rises significantly above the cost of production, the increase tends to go straight to the company’s bottom line. That drives the company’s share price higher.Of course, if the gold price falls significantly, profits can be wiped out. This means gold stocks can fall heavily too.There are many gold mining stocks listed on the London Stock Exchange. These range from FTSE 100 giants, such as Polymetal International, which is a top-10 global gold producer, to small-cap stocks such as Greatland Gold, which is focused on mining in Australia.Generally speaking, the smaller the company, the higher the potential rewards. But that also means there’s a higher potential risk too.My advice, if you’re interested in investing in gold mining stocks, is to spread your money over a few different stocks. This will help minimise your stock-specific risk. Image source: Getty Images.

U20 World Championship: New Zealand 64-17 England

first_img By Aaron TillyerNew Zealand beat England in emphatic style to become World Rugby U20 champions for an historic sixth time.The Baby Blacks racked up ten tries in their 64-17 demolition of last year’s winners, who failed to make any mark in the final at the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium in Tbilisi.New Zealand were far superior in a clinical attack, whereas handling errors and defensive frailties hampered any opportunities for England.Dalton Papali’i was first to cross for the Baby Blacks, winning a scrum against the head on England’s 22m line before diving over from close range.Line breached: Isaia Walker-Leawere finds a hole in England’s defence. Photo: Getty ImagesEngland’s defence was lacking in strength – something we’ve been so accustomed to seeing in the competition – and that allowed New Zealand to break through the middle and out wide.Prop Pouri Rakete-Stones capitalised on a break on halfway, touching down only a couple of phases later. In contrast, scoring opportunities for England were rare and when fly-half Max Malins missed a penalty after 12 minutes, things were looking bleak for the defending champions.Full-back Will Jordan and fly-half Stephen Perofeta continued to open up England’s defence and kept the scoreboard rolling. Further tries from Asafo Aumua (two), Isaia Walker-Leawere and captain Luke Jacobson gave the five-time winners a commanding lead. Champions: New Zealand’s Baby Blacks celebrate their U20 title in Georgia.

A powerful Malins pass on the advantage line drew out three New Zealand defenders to give Earl an easy run-in, reducing the deficit somewhat to 40-7 at the break.England rang the changes in the early stages of the second half but New Zealand began as relentlessly as they had finished the first, Josh McKay racing over in the corner to increase the Kiwis’ lead.Quick thinking: Alex Mitchell scores from a tap penalty. Photo: Getty ImagesWhen England finally got some possession and began to attack in New Zealand’s half, a quickly tapped penalty by replacement Alex Mitchell allowed him to dive over for their second try, but a missed conversion from Malins underlined his out-of-sorts display.New Zealand’s hooker Aumua has been one of the standout players of the campaign and fittingly brought up his side’s half century with another finely worked try from short range. It was his third and he was subsequently brought off to a standing ovation.Tom Christie and Jacobson followed for New Zealand’s ninth and tenth tries of the game. England’s tank was running on empty, but not before Josh Bayliss touched down in the corner to end the campaign on a relative positive.Hat-trick hero: Hooker Asafo Aumua scored three tries. Photo: Getty ImagesEngland will be disappointed not have competed in the first half and, as France found out in their semi-final, chasing the game against New Zealand is no easy task.New Zealand were undoubtedly the best side in the competition and surely a number of these Baby Blacks will be in contention for the All Blacks come the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

I too like the big tent so long as we seek Jesus Christ in all things. With regards to hymns (and being an organist), I have often wondered when our hymnody gatekeepers are going to give the people their music back – to create a Hymnal of such depth and accessibility that we will hear the roar of song each week. Yes, we need innovation, but not for the sake of innovation. I would love to see a standard Hymnal in our pews that has “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence” and “Lift High the Cross” alongside “How Great Thou Art” and “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”. Give the people their hymnody back and we’ll see different numbers in the pews.

In Marseilles, A+Architecture has designed one of the highest wooden buildings in France for the CROUS: the Lucien Cornil hall of residence. This eight-floor student residence is the fruit of a successful environmental and construction period. Its sensitive urban approach makes this 200-room structure a functional building, comfortable and opening out towards the city.Save this picture!Master PlanConsisting of three wings, the design benefits from a very high ground floor and attics on the top two levels as well as quality shared spaces. The graduation of the building heights of the project will interact with the surrounding buildings and leave them with space to breath despite the density of the area.Save this picture!© Benoit WehrléMost of the rooms are directed towards the enclosed garden, a genuinely relaxing indoor garden, on the street side, the openings are positioned along the less noisy alley. In this constricted urban environment, the choice of wood construction (excluding vertical knots) was obvious. Reduction in disruption caused by the works, an optimised schedule, but also a commitment to the comfort of the residence are what convinced the CROUS to embark on the adventure.Save this picture!© Benoit WehrléSave this picture!© Benoit WehrléWood is found on all the ceilings and on the walls of the rooms, the latter being sound-proofed. It is also present in the corridors and communal rooms, but not on the facings where its ageing is deemed too visible. Its strong interior presence gives the impression of a warm and relaxing atmosphere with soft acoustics. The wooden shrouds, with cross-laminated assembly, give off a forest scent.Save this picture!© Benoit WehrléThe use of solid wood CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) limits energy consumption and provides an excellent carbon footprint. “The entire building has been designed to be very heat and acoustically efficient, while maintaining consistent lines and at a very competitive price”, states A+Architecture.Save this picture!© Benoit WehrléThe cladding is something else. A perforated curved panel is mixed with large aluminium shingles to mix up the lines, reduce the scale and break-down the volumes. The perforated skin passes in front of a section of wide glazed strips, transforming the building in the evening to a beacon of light in the Marseillaise nightSave this picture!© Benoit WehrléThe landscaped interior garden, mainly pointing towards the city, is given over to meetings, the large piazza connecting with the rue Saint Pierre entrance highlights the carefully preserved majestic pine treeSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe light is magnified everywhere, sometimes filtered behind the perforations of the cladding’s protective cladding sheets or behind the aluminium railings in the upper sections of the communal areas, somewhat generous for the rooms, the blanking is provided by a roller shutter which closes off the entire opening.Save this picture!© Benoit WehrléIn a dense area, the location and choice of space occupied have enabled the communal areas, the circulation areas and the views to provide a functional building that opens up onto the city.Save this picture!© Benoit WehrléThe wooden structure combined with a sensitive and functional architecture provides a solution very much of its time; innovative and in-tune with the environment.Project gallerySee allShow lessEmiliano RJ / Studio Arthur Casas + Oppenheim ArchitectureSelected ProjectsHouse in a Garden / RS SparchSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Marseille, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Years after completing a client’s Venice beachfront home, Architect Dan Brunn was tasked with delivering a second beach house, just a stone’s throw from the first one. A straightforward request was made, to build a structure that would sustain the harsh marine weather with minimal maintenance. Brunn’s immediate design response was to construct an all-concrete structure.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaBuilt on a dense site, fronting the beach and measuring a narrow 28’ in width, the conditions demanded extreme attention to detail to allow for a dynamic building program, natural light, and outdoor space.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaSave this picture!1st Floor PlanSave this picture!© Brandon ShigetaBrunn’s design began with spatial programming, conceived by stacking virtual cubes in 3D BIM software until an appropriate design was resolved that could answer to the contrast of the view, privacy, and natural light. The generally cubic nature of the design resulted in a push and pull, with a duality of positive and negative spaces, hence named: Positively Negative. One can compare the design to a stone that has been chiseled away; as a solid mass with light airy spaces within its otherwise heavy nature.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaIntegral to the design approach is the choreography of circulation, which is characterized by a spatial and structural arrangement that allows for a vibrantly navigated pace as you move throughout the space. This experience is notably punctuated by the central staircase atrium, whose repetitive shape forms a sequence of right turns to descend each level.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaSave this picture!© Brandon ShigetaThe walking pattern that arises is highlighted with multiple vantage points of the immense expanse of unfurling vistas and delivers a poignant visual impact. Addressing architecture with the user experience in mind is consistent with Brunn’s humanistic approach, which he dubs “Empathetic Design” which is intended to elicit reflection and engagement.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaAn assemblage of voluminous spaces, open balconies, and varied materials, permeate all aspects of the ecologically friendly design approach. The main structure, built out of vertical board-formed concrete, is punctuated by smooth, white plaster walls, matte wood millwork, and glossy terrazzo floors. On the roof is an efficient solar energy system, while passive cooling and radiant floor heating condition the home.Save this picture!© Brandon ShigetaProject gallerySee allShow lessNish House / Paritzki & Liani ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Potential of Architects in EntrepreneurshipArticlesProject locationAddress:Venice, Los Angeles, California, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Probe into Ingush website owner’s murder relaunched but FSB continues to target website

first_img Follow the news on Russia June 12, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Probe into Ingush website owner’s murder relaunched but FSB continues to target website News RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts News June 2, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Reporters Without Borders is pinning its hopes on the appointment of a new judge on 3 June to conduct the investigation into the death of Magomed Yevloyev, the owner of the Ingushetiya.ru (now Ingushetia.org) news website and opponent of former Ingush President Murat Zyazikov. Yevloyev was shot dead while in police custody in Magas, Ingushetia’s new capital, in August 2008. The appointment follows a decision by the judge in charge of the case, Ramzan Tutayev, to withdraw because of objections that he was related to the leading suspect. The judicial investigation is to go back to the point of preliminary hearings.“We hope that this change, made at the Yevloyev family’s request, will enable the judicial authorities to establish the circumstances of Yevloyev’s death and identify all those responsible,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His death must be treated as a murder, and the investigation must not be limited to the person who fired the fatal shot, who was just the last link in the chain that resulted in his death.”Yevloyev’s father, Yakhya Yevloyev, told the Russian newspaper Kommersant, “I now have a hope that those guilty of my son’s death will be identified.” The family’s lawyers have also filed a complaint before the European Court of Human Rights.Reporters Without Borders added: “The authorities nonetheless continue to target the Ingushetiya.org website and are harassing its current owner, Yevloyev’s brother. It is still charged with extremism and inciting racial hatred and a ‘proxy’ has to be used to access the site from inside Ingushetia. The judge must ensure that this harassment does not obstruct his investigation.”Yevloyev’s brother was not at home when the Federal Security Service (FSB) went to his Moscow apartment on 3 June, but the FSB’s “T Department” (which combats terrorism and extremism) has since notified him that it wants to have a “conversation” with him about the website’s activities as part of the investigation into the extremism and racial hatred charges. Yevloyev was arrested by interior ministry personnel on landing in Magas on 31 August 2008 on a flight from Moscow, during which he had a violent argument with President Zyazikov, a fellow passenger. He was fatally shot in the head a few minutes after being driven away in a police car. The authorities have always described his death as an accident but the Yevloyev family and the Ingush opposition insist that it was murder.So far, the only person to be prosecuted in connection with his death is Ibragim Yevloyev, the then Ingush interior minister’s chief bodyguard, who is charged with “homicide as a result of negligence” under article 109 of the Russian criminal code. The Yevloyev family want the charge changed to murder.When the former bodyguard’s trial began, the judge ruled that he did not have to appear in court for safety reasons. The judge also allowed witnesses to submit their evidence in the form of written statements read out in court. As a result, the Yevloyev family and its lawyers boycotted the hearings.center_img Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Help by sharing this information RussiaEurope – Central Asia RussiaEurope – Central Asia Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing News May 21, 2021 Find out more May 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
