One FTSE “Snowball Stock” With Runaway Revenues It’s been rewarding for shareholders who have held Lloyds during that time. So why do I still view these as UK shares to buy now? In short, I see further upside potential. Here’s why.During the pandemic, banks such as Lloyds were prohibited by their regulator from paying dividends. That rule has now been eased. Lloyds is paying out again. It still has some rules on how much it can pay though – and it has been paying the maximum. The bank has indicated that it plans to resume a progressive dividend policy when it can.Lloyds stayed profitable even during the pandemic. Last year, it recorded a pre-tax profit of £1.2bn. So it generates substantial free cash with which to pay dividends. Additionally, it has been building up a cash pile while it has been constrained from paying dividends. That could help to fund a special dividend in future.Business outlookDividends are only attractive to me if they look sustainable. There’s always a risk dividends will be cut with any share, of course, and that includes Lloyds. But one reason I have confidence in the company is its focused business model. It has a market-leading position in the UK, where it is the leading mortgage lender. That helps make its strategy less complex to execute than some rivals with large global footprints, such as Barclays. It also means Lloyds is primed to benefit from the ongoing buoyancy of the UK housing market.That focus does also bring a risk though. As it is so tied to the fortunes of the UK economy, any downturn (such as a recession) could lead to declining revenues and lower profits at the bank.JD Sports’ proven formulaI’d put the second £1,000 of my £2,000 investment pot into JD Sports.I see the retailer as one of the more attractive UK shares to buy now for my portfolio because of its proven retail formula. The company seems to understand what its customers want, and how to source it at a price that enables a decent profit margin.The growth has been strong – even the pandemic only slowed growth rather than reversing it. With geographic reach from the US west coast to Australia, JD is rolling its playbook out on a global scale. But its bricks and mortar footprint is only part of its operations. It has a sizeable online presence. JD has embraced digital sales as an opportunity rather than a threat to its shops.A risk with JD sports is mounting expenses in its globalised supply chain. With ship container costs soaring in recent months and raw material costs also growing fast, input costs could hurt its profit margins.

Stone House / NOMO STUDIO

first_img Clients:PrivadoLandscaping:Cristina Gil de Biedma & Bárbara SaavedraCollaborators:Aqruitectos técnicos Mus&SeguiDesign Team:Karl Johan Nyqvist, Mira Botsewa, Jennifer MendezCountry:SpainMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Joan GuillamatRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20Text description provided by the architects. Stone House is located on a hillside facing the north coast of Minorca, Spain. This new dwelling is built with the same technique and material as the ancient limestone walls enclosing most of the farmlands on the island. Its sequence of superimposed stone layers (facade and fences) blend architecture and landscape into each other. This symbiosis is further strengthened by the fact that the facade’s stone was fully collected from the onsite excavation for the villa’s foundation.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatThe client’s program consisted of six bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, garage and auxiliar rooms. All of them were organized around a magnificent double height space that connects both physically and visually the two floors. Thanks to its large upper floor glazing, this space becomes a very bright light-shaft for the whole house which otherwise could have lacked light in its core due to its depth. Thus all the villa’s circulation spirals around this void liberating it from narrow dark corridors and activating its heart.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatSave this picture!© Joan GuillamatFrom its generous 100 sqm covered porch, one can contemplate the most imposing cliffs of Minorca or enjoy its sunsets. This indoor/outdoor space functions as an extension of kitchen, dining and living room, and is therefore, where most social gatherings take place. It may be also understood as a grand generic space which allows for flexible settings, binds and interconnects the different day areas and acts as a threshold between house and nature. Thanks to this room’s openable double glazed facade it acts as a true thermal buffer becoming a cosy wintergarden in the mild season, a fresh shaded porch in the hot summers and the perfect hot-air insulating system in the winter. In the garden, wild olive trees and local vegetation surround a large limestone platform with a grey stone-coated swimming pool.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Section AAThe client’s explicit wish to take strong references from the local traditional architecture faced the challenge of not falling into pure replica. The facade’s composition responds to a reinterpretation of the Minorcan custom of framing windows and edges with white plaster, thus creating a geometric patchwork of off-white plaster and light-tone stone. Thin steel frames project beyond the solid facade to protect the windows from direct sun and support the foldable wooden shutters. In order to enhance this thick/thin contrast, all windows were aligned to the interior and its frames were embedded from the outside creating the illusion of open holes on a stone wall.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatSimilarly to the facade’s earthy palette, the interior is a combination of continuous sand-coloured concrete pavement, whitewashed walls, pine wood carpentry and white-veiled wooden beams. These natural materials create a both warm but also airy atmosphere within the pastel range. All built-in kitchen furniture and wardrobes are custom made by a local carpenter. Details such as a solid hovering stair with integrated handrail-lighting create an interesting dialogue between traditional and contemporary architecture. Kitchen, wardrobes, libraries and niches were built in masonry keeping simplicity as a common thread. Furthermore, the use of soft indirect illumination was also designed throughout the house, avoiding placing exposed lighting fixtures on walls or beam-ceilings.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatInspired on the robustness and compactness of ancestral architecture, however using modern construction systems, this house reaches the highest ranking in sustainable performance. Its highly insulated skin, its facade’s solid-glass proportion and its flexible shading techniques guarantee a pleasant temperature all year around.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatProject gallerySee allShow lessETH Zurich Develops 3D-Printed Concrete ColumnsArchitecture NewsSpotlight: Arata IsozakiArchitecture News Share Projects Stone House / NOMO STUDIO “COPY” Houses “COPY” Save this picture!© Joan Guillamat+ 47Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921516/stone-house-nomo-studio Clipboard ArchDaily Photographs Manufacturers: Technal, Roca, Balay 2019 CopyHouses, Sustainability•Spain Lead Architects: Year:  Area:  450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: NOMO STUDIO Area Area of this architecture project Photographs:  Joan Guillamat Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Alicia Casals San Miguel ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921516/stone-house-nomo-studio Clipboard Stone House / NOMO STUDIOSave this projectSaveStone House / NOMO STUDIO CopyAbout this officeNOMO STUDIOOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilitySpainPublished on July 23, 2019Cite: “Stone House / NOMO STUDIO” [Casa de Piedra / NOMO STUDIO] 23 Jul 2019.

Farm Bureau Experts Talk Trade for 2019

first_img American Farm Bureau policy experts talked trade during a workshop at the organization’s 100th annual convention. Farm Bureau will be keeping an eye on a lot of things this year when it comes to trade. Dave Salmonsen is the organization’s senior director of congressional relations. He says the diverse impact of tariffs, the outcomes of free trade agreement negotiations, and the future relationship between the U.S. and China are all factors critical to growing exports in the future.Salmonsen talked about the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement and said the ratification process “could be quick or it could be slow, but there’s a timeline that has to be followed.” Salmonsen said the U.S. has also begun trade negotiations with Japan, the European Union, and the United Kingdom. Trade negotiations between the U.S. and China are still ongoing. Farm Bureau economist and director of congressional relations Veronica Nigh was also on stage and talked about the economic impact of trade and tariffs. “95 percent of the world’s population is outside the U.S., so export markets are always our best opportunity for growth,” Nigh says. Overall, 20 percent of U.S. agricultural products are exported.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Experts Talk Trade for 2019 SHARE Farm Bureau Experts Talk Trade for 2019 Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarm Bureau Celebrates 100 Years and Productive 2018 on the HAT Monday Morning EditionNext articlePotential Fireworks During U.S. and EU Trade Negotiations; Shutdown Hits USTR Office NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Jan 14, 2019 last_img read more

Oppressive climate for reporters in run-up to Belarus election

first_imgNews July 29, 2020 Oppressive climate for reporters in run-up to Belarus election BelarusEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsEvents ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment News RSF_en Credit : Sergei GAPON / AFP Help by sharing this information May 28, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Belarus Receive email alerts “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) sounds the alarm about the oppressive climate for media freedom in Belarus just days ahead of its presidential election on 9 August and condemns the systematic arrests of journalists covering demonstrations during the campaign – harassment that the prosecutor-general is refusing to investigate.Although more than 40 journalists have been arrested during the past two and a half months of election campaigning, the prosecutor-general announced on 24 July that he would not investigate the way their reporting had been obstructed. This “falls under the exclusive competence of the authorities responsible for the initial investigation,” he said.His statement came three days after more than 200 journalists addressed an open letter to him, the interior minister, the information minister and the president of the Council of the Republic calling for an end to the persecution to which they have been subjected in recent weeks.“The aim of this extraordinary harassment has been to prevent journalists from covering the unprecedented campaigns against President Alexander Lukashenko’s reelection,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“The events of the past few months have shown the authorities ready to do anything to gag independent media. We call for impartial investigations with the aim of prosecuting those guilty of the crime of obstructing the work of journalists, which is penalized by article 198 of the Belarusian criminal code.”Cavelier added: “The authorities also have a duty to guarantee the media landscape’s pluralism and the right of independent and foreign media to report and express their views with complete safety during the election period, in accordance with Belarus’ international obligations as a member of the OSCE.”On 23 July, President Lukashenko urged the foreign ministry to rescind foreign media accreditation without waiting until the end of the campaign. The next day, the electoral commission announced that only state media would have access to Government House, the seat of the Belarusian parliament, to cover the election on 9 August.The reporting environment for journalists working for independent media, which are constantly targeted by the authorities, has deteriorated steadily as rallies kept on being held in support of opposition candidates.An initial wave of arrests took place at the start of May, during demonstrations organized in Minsk and provincial cities by Siarhei Tikhanouski, an outspoken blogger who was subsequently prevented from being a candidate. Four reporters were sentenced to between 10 and 21 days in prison for “participating in an unauthorized demonstration.”A second wave of arrests came on 19 and 20 June, just after the deadline for would-be presidential candidates to collect the necessary signatures. The police arrested freelancers and reporters for independent and foreign media including Reuters, Radio Svaboda (RFE/RL’s Belarusian service), the Belarusian exile radio station Euroradio, the news sites Tut.by and Onliner.by and the local newspaper Hantsavichy Chas.The aggressiveness towards journalists peaked in mid-July, during spontaneous demonstrations in support of two would-be opposition presidential candidates who had just been barred from running by the electoral commission. Sixteen reporters were summarily arrested and one, a reporter for Radio Svaboda, had his nose broken.Ruled since 1994 by Lukashenko, who until now has been reelected in the first round every five years, Belarus is ranked 153rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Report says promises need to be turned into reality

first_img German spyware company FinFisher searched by public prosecutors June 15, 2020 Find out more News Reports March 6, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Report says promises need to be turned into reality Reporters Without Borders today issued its report of a fact-finding trip to Bahrain, coinciding with the Gulf island nation’s celebration of the ninth anniversary of King Hamad bin Issa Al-Khalifa’s installation as head of state. The report calls on the authorities to implement the legislative reforms that it has been promising for several years.

The report calls on the authorities to implement the legislative reforms that it has been promising for several years.While Bahraini journalists are able to speak out a bit more than their colleagues in many other Gulf countries, the press freedom situation is far from satisfactory. No journalist has been imprisoned since March 1999, but the press still has many problems. Restrictive laws and veiled pressure from officials too often force journalists to censors themselves.This was the context for a Reporters Without Borders visit to the capital Manama from 9 to 13 February, during which it met government officials, opposition politicians, journalists and civil society representatives.Government officials seem to be sincere in their desire help the kingdom’s media to evolve, but the long-awaited reforms have still not materialised. They include the reform of the Press and Publications Act, otherwise known as Law No. 47. No fewer than 18 press offences are punishable under this law, which took effect in October 2002, and are often defined in terms that allow a very broad interpretation.Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities not to postpone fulfilling their promises to allow more press freedom. Reform of the press law must not be abandoned for lack of political determination or because of pressure from the radical fundamentalists who form the majority in parliament.King Hamad has on several occasions expressed a desire to decriminalize press offences. Kuwait is so far the only Gulf nation to have taken this step. Reporters Without Borders thinks the Bahraini authorities should go further and put an end to the state’s monopoly of broadcasting. The organisation also urges the information ministry to show more restraint in its censorship of the Internet. Access to many websites is banned. It should be the job of the courts, not the government, to regulate the Internet. Tenth anniversary of Bahraini blogger’s arrest News BahrainMiddle East – North Africa last_img read more

Their record over the last seven years has been a disgrace, and our health sector is a reflection of their failure. Each year the situation gets worse.“This morning, there was actually a strike intended to take place, only for it to be called off last evening when the hospitals management eventually agreed to attend the Workplace Relations Commission.“We have workers run off their feet, in understaffed emergency departments, working with very limited resources. On top of that, the complete lack of respect by management to delay WRC talks until now means that we will almost certainly face further strike action from members of the nurses unions and IMO.“I want to know how the Government can reconcile this situation I have just outlined with the €350m in tax cuts it authorised in the last budget.“I also want to know what the Minister is going to do about the €881m deficit the HSE is facing in their 2018 budget. We need answers from the Minister as a matter of urgency. If this issue is not dealt with the people of Limerick will continue to suffer.” He concluded.More about politics here.
