See all posts by Christopher Ruane Christopher Ruane | Thursday, 25th March, 2021 Putting spare capital to work now can be a useful way to generate passive income for next year and years into the future.Let’s say I had £20,000 to invest today and wanted to invest it in blue chip shares. With passive income as my main objective, here’s what I’d do.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…Diversification reduces riskWith £20,000, I’d have enough to diversify as a way of reducing risk. Relying too heavily on any one share, no matter how attractive the yield, can be a costly mistake if it stumbles in future.I’d look to diversify into at least five companies but to spread my risks more I’d go for ten. I’d also look to diversify across sectors. That way I would not be overly exposed to a sectoral downturn I didn’t see coming. I’d split my money equally between five sectors.Choosing the sectorsRather than picking individual shares first, I’d start with the sectors I want to invest in.That’s because I’d like to begin with a view on whether a sector looks agreeably valued. I would also consider its future passive income-producing prospects.If a sector does well overall, it should help to lift individual names, even if I don’t pick the best performers. Similarly, if a sector goes into freefall, having the best stock in it still might not insulate me from a downturn.Looking at the market today, I’d choose the following five sectors:Pharma – pharma is here to stay and I expect it to grow. It’s not the highest-yielding sector, though, and patent expiration can dent firms’ future returns.Financial services – similarly, it’s here to stay and profit levels can be attractive. As the pandemic showed, though, a financial downturn can lead to dividend suspension.Consumer goods – I see demand increasing over time. Margins here can be tight, or affected by shifts in consumer tastes.Energy – this is another sector where growth may be slow, but demand will likely be fairly reliable. But returns can be regulated, limiting future income upside.Tobacco – I am overweight in tobacco currently, which is a risk given falling demand in many cigarette markets. As a fifth of the portfolio, though, the yield would offer an attractive passive income stream.The 10 shares I’d pick now for passive incomeI’d pick these 10 shares, all FTSE 100 members.For pharma, I’d plump for GlaxoSmithKline, which yields 6.3% though has signalled that will fall. AstraZeneca’s 2.9% yield is the lowest on this list. Its strong brand attracts me though vaccine profitability may underwhelm. In financial services, I’d choose M&G, with its 8.9% yield, and Legal and General, which offers 6.4%. Any financial downturn could hurt their business, though.For consumer goods I’d buy Unilever, with its 3.6% yield, and Tesco, offering 5.1%. They have strong brands and pricing power. Discounters could drive down margins in future, though.In energy, my picks would be National Grid, yielding 5.6%, and BP, 6.9%. The energy markets have had a roller-coaster year both for cost inputs and selling prices – this could affect returns.Finally in tobacco I’d buy the two big British names – British American Tobacco, offering 7.7%, and Imperial Brands at 9.3%.Dividends are never guaranteed: Imperial and BP both cut their dividends last year. Today, though, £20,000 split evenly across these 10 names would provide me with passive income of around £1,250 a year, yielding around 6.3%.last_img read more

C’est la plus grande installation solaire de tous les séminaires de théologie des États-Unis.« Lorsque l’entreprise American Solar est venue et a regardé nos toits plats avec essentiellement 100 % d’exposition au sud, elle s’est émerveillée de l’efficience que cela allait avoir sur notre campus », a expliqué W. Mark Richardson, Doyen et Président du séminaire, au cours d’une interview avec Episcopal News Service au début de l’année.Le 22 octobre, Katharine Jefferts Schori, ancienne Évêque Primat, professeure invitée du ministère des femmes de Ste. Margaret à CDSP et Marc Andrus, évêque de Californie ont conduit la liturgie pour bénir et consacrer les panneaux solaires, à la fin d’une conférence d’une journée qui examinait la réponse de l’église à la crise du changement climatique.Selon Mark Richardson, les panneaux solaires font avancer le séminaire vers l’indépendance énergétique et le projet lui-même est également une manière d’enseigner et d’autonomiser les étudiants qui ont été impliqués dans le processus de prise de décision pour qu’ils pensent aux moyens d’atténuer le changement climatique lorsqu’ils seront diplômés.Article complet en anglais.

The first time we visited the area with its owners, we were greeted by “the real owner of the area” – a confident, calm, brown-colored dog. Some time ago, this dog was lost and found shelter at the former owner’s house. It took a little amount of care to him to stay here. The owners sold their house, moved away, but the dog stayed loyal to the place. He stayed here during the period of construction, patiently waited for the inconvenience to end… Not only the owners changed, but the all site as well. Although, he stayed loyal. Nowadays, he still greets visitors to the site. Holding his head up he takes care and protects the place. It seems that the new place fits him as well as the former one. Today, he is named Brownie – a beloved and well-known dog in the area. A true story that inspired not only us. We fell in love not only with this place, but it’s spirit as well. It was a start point where the sensitive designing of architecture started. Save this picture!© Norbert TukajSave this picture!© Norbert TukajThe site is located in the area of Regional Park, Vilnius city county. The project is a reconstruction of the old building, maintaining its former site, bearing in mind all of the former building parameters. The main aim is to revive the abandoned building by creating a new quality and aesthetics of architecture. The former buildings were located in an astounding and picturesque landscape, on the top of the park’s hill. In such a context, the decision of subtle integration of architecture to the unique landscape seemed like the only proper option. Regulations of the park protect and preserves the forms of traditional architecture, so it is clear that buildings attribute to this as well. The silhouettes and materials of buildings are traditional. Two separated volumes of buildings are being designed. The main residential house is located in the upper area of the site while the storehouse sits on the lower part. The building is surrounded by granite pavement combined with a lawn in order to integrate into such a natural context. The storehouse is connected to the main residence with pavement made of stone rubble. A low wooden fence acts as a subtle boundary of the site. There are no man-designed greenery and plants’ compositions, only some newly planted pines, which continues the undergrowth of former pines. Save this picture!© Norbert TukajThe buildings reflect the calm, steady culture of architectural design. The main building volume integrates into the hill and is being partly undercovered by it. It has no aim to dominate after nature. All of the dynamic and natural landscapes are being preserved. Such a relationship gives a feeling of sensitivity and plastic. A human scale is also being evaluated. A cut in volume is made for the terrace and it adds additional elegance to the architectural silhouette. This terrace gives the ability to observe the valley and surrounding nature. Save this picture!© Norbert TukajThe warehouse is even more solid. It also reassembles the silhouette of traditional form. Although here, in contrast to the main building, all of the windows and glazing are being hidden. By using the same materials and aesthetics to both of the buildings, the interaction between them is created.  Save this picture!© Norbert TukajSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Norbert TukajThe facades are made from natural cedar wood. This material is traditional and reliable – not only it gives long-lasting protection, but it is sustainable as well. The detailing of the windows and doors are made from copper. To conclude, only exceptionally ecological and sustainable materials are being used in the whole project.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajSave this picture!© Norbert TukajThe construction of buildings is made from pine wood. For heat isolation, natural wood wool is used. The inner walls are covered with clay plaster. Clay plaster is a local material that is great for preserving a certain microclimate needed. Proper ventilation is being implemented by the natural ventilation system. Save this picture!© Norbert TukajMinimal interventions to an existing structure, high quality of architecture, and innovative design create the high value of the building while maintaining neutrality to the natural context.

Freelance journaliste Manuel Vázquez Portal released

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information June 24, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Freelance journaliste Manuel Vázquez Portal released CubaAmericas Receive email alerts to go further CubaAmericas May 6, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Cuba RSF and Fundamedios welcome US asylum ruling in favor of Cuban journalist Serafin Moran Santiago New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Councilcenter_img News October 15, 2020 Find out more News Organisation Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet News October 12, 2018 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has welcomed the 23 June release of freelance journalist Manuel Vázquez Portal in Cuba but warned that it did not mean any improvement in the situation of press freedom under President Fidel Castro.”This may be good news for Manuel Vázquez and his family, but it isn’t yet for press freedom,” the organisation said. “Firstly, because Vázquez is threatened with being reimprisoned if he resumes his journalistic activities. Secondly, and above all, because 26 of his fellow journalists are still in prison in Cuba and the government still has a monopoly of the press.”With Vázquez, a total of 10 dissidents – three of them journalists – have been released since the start of the year. Six of them were part of the group of 75 dissidents who were rounded up in a dramatic crackdown in March 2003. Castro is on the Reporters Without Borders list of 37 predators of press freedom around the world.”It would be a mistake to suggest that this represents any relaxation in repression in Cuba when, according to the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation (CCDHRN), between 20 and 30 dissidents have been arrested since the start of this year,” the organisation added.Vázquez was released yesterday morning from “Boniato” prison in Santiago de Cuba province and reached his home in Havana, more than 1,000 km to the west, in the evening. For health reasons, he was given a special authorisation to return to his home that is the legal equivalent of house arrest. It is not unconditional.The head of the CCDHRN, Elizardo Sánchez, pointed out that, under the criminal code, this special leave ends when the detainee’s health improves. Vázquez could also be reimprisoned if he went back to working as an independent journalist.Vázquez suffers from pulmonary emphysema (a narrowing of the respiratory passages causing a lack of oxygen in the blood). He had on several occasions described his prison conditions as inhumane. The CCDHRN said the condition of his health, and that of the other released dissidents, had been considered serious since last year..Trial and biographyManuel Vázquez Portal had been arrested on 19 March 2003 during the Cuban “black spring” crackdown that saw 75 opposition figures arrested then sentenced to jail terms ranging from six to 28 years. He had been sentenced on 4 April 2004 to 18 years in prison by the division for state security crimes of the Havana provincial court. Vázquez Portal was accused of endangering Cuba’s independence under law 88 for writing articles for the cubanet.org website, contributing to Radio Martí, the US government radio station that beams programmes to Cuba, receiving frequent dollar transfers from the United States as payment for his articles, and meeting regularly with officials of the US interests section in Havana.A philology graduate of Villa Clara university, a former teacher, a former literary adviser at the ministry of culture, a former journalist with the government news media (including the magazine Caimán Barbudo), Vázquez is a poet and writer who won three official prizes between 1984 and 1993 before being expelled from the National Union of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC) in 1995 because of his dissident views. Co-founder in 1995 of Cuba Press and in 1997 of the Independent Journalists Cooperative, in 1998 he set up the Grupo de Trabajo Decoro, a news agency dedicated to literary and cultural news.Vázquez Portal had been granted a political refugee visa by the United States, but the Cuban authorities did not give him an exit permit until 18 October 2002, after the US authorities had suspected “freedom flights” between Cuba and the mainland as part of the security measures adopted in the wake of 11 September 2001. Now that he has been released, Vázquez intends to set about once again taking all the necessary steps to get permission to leave the country. RSF_en last_img read more
