I’d avoid buy-to-let and consider these FTSE 100 dividend stocks instead

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address 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. It builds over 16,000 new homes a year in over 380 locations in the UK. But the company has some issues. Over the years there has been lots of negative publicity about poorly-built homes while management continues to be rewarded with very generous pay packets.The financial fundamentals for this company make it look like a no-brainer Buy, but as that weak reputation shows, it’s not without risk. Add to that the fact that Brexit uncertainty is far from over and calls for the government to inspect the housebuilding sector for fire risk, among other hazards, pose a threat to its continued success. The dividend yield is tempting, but I’d buy with caution and keep a close eye on sector news.Turnaround to profitAnother FTSE 100 company I’d consider is Melrose Industries (LSE:MRO), a specialist manufacturing investor.Melrose buys struggling industrial businesses and turns them around to make a profit for investors. Its strategy has paid off. Its share price has skyrocketed 42% in the past year and over 355% in the past five years. Shareholders are happy and there could be more to come.The company is considering a $3bn sale of its Nortek Air business along with a sale of its Brush power generation equipment unit, thought to be worth around $131m.Melrose bought FTSE 100 contemporary and engineering giant GKN for £8bn in 2018. This appears to have been a good move, and the turnaround plan is going well. Investors are waiting patiently with anticipation of generous profits to come.Melrose has a 2% dividend yield and a 48% debt ratio due to strong cash generation. Its P/E is around 16, which is close to the industrial sector average. I think it looks like a good company to add to a long-term buy-and-hold portfolio. Buy-to-let property can be an enticing venture for anyone with a bit of spare cash. Browsing online estate agents can throw up hundreds of properties that give the illusion of being a bargain buy. However, it doesn’t take much to realise the time, effort and cost involved in buy-to-let are vast.If you get lucky, you might purchase a property in an up-and-coming area that increases in value. However, that’s rarely the case these days. And most properties also need repairs, updates or alterations before they can be let.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…From buy-to-let to buy-and-holdAn alternative to buy-to-let properties is investing your money in the stock market. If property interests you, then the housebuilding sector may appeal.Housebuilder Persimmon (LSE:PSN) benefited from the December election result that brought a little more stability to an uncertain sector. Persimmon’s share price has increased by 29% since the election and its margins continue to grow.The FTSE 100 company has a market cap of £10bn, its price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is under 12 and earnings per share are £2.77. But most enticing of all is its generous 7.4% dividend yield. I’d avoid buy-to-let and consider these FTSE 100 dividend stocks instead Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Bumpers Oast represents a 21st century riff on a local vernacular derived from the houses used to dry hops as part of the beer-brewing process. Four shingle-clad towers rise up from the natural surroundings, creating an extremely low-energy home with a bold contemporary aesthetic. The property has been created for a family that moved to Kent 10 years ago and almost bought an oast house at that time They enjoyed the intimacy and idiosyncrasies of living in circular spaces and so were happy to receive a proposal from ACME for a modern interpretation.Save this picture!Courtesy of ACMESave this picture!© Jim StephensonThe proportions of the tower roundels were based on a traditional oast and they stand slightly apart from one another; creating views inwards and outwards, and housing private functions such as bedrooms, bathrooms, and service spaces. The towers are all connected to a triple-height central space that opens out to an orchard setting and forms the heart of the house. This was made possible by assembling the frame with thick timber modules, topped by cones manufactured offsite and then craned into position.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Jim StephensonKent-style tiles have been used to create the exterior skin in six shades, slowly fading from dark red at the base to light orange at the tip. These were produced using local craft skills and the tiling work was a huge technical challenge. Every tile above eaves level has been individually cut, with over 41,000 used across the whole facade.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonThe interior of the roundels is clad in plywood, as a continuous surface for the cylindrical parts, and as overlapping plywood shingles for the roof cones. Curved furniture is built into the rooms where possible to make the best use of the space. The kitchen needed to feel warm among the harder surfaces downstairs, as the family see it as an important gathering space. Timber was selected for this reason and it has been employed to create bespoke curved units and fronts to follow the line of the wall. A microcement was used to form the counter top to achieve a continuous surface that matches the polished concrete floor.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonSave this picture!Section A-ASave this picture!© Jim StephensonEach of the bedroom spaces is split level, which creates a play space for the children on the lower level that can later be adapted for study, while the master bedroom is designed with a dressing area in the upper space that opens onto an en suite. Helical stairs lead the family into the conical sleeping spaces, with thin balustrades made of gently curving plywood. The bathrooms have been created as open-plan niches with no screens, therefore the room size is designed to match its purpose and allow for in-built storage. Microcement is used again to pick up on the materials downstairs and to accommodate the unusual geometry of the interiors.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonSave this picture!© Jim StephensonThe downstairs bathroom uses mosaic which echoes the grey tones of the concrete. As it is a north-facing room, matt and gloss finishes have been employed to play with reflections from sunlight as it enters the space. In fact, all window openings have reveals formed by the walls folding into them, which increases the light refraction coming into the rooms.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonAll bedrooms are on the first floor, and each one has its own private staircase to an upper level in the roof cone, creating a building that is entirely communal on the ground, shared on the first, and full of secluded treehouse-like retreats on the second floor.  The building’s sustainable credentials stem from its heavily-insulated timber frame structure, which breaks from the tradition of solid bricks walls usually used to construct oast houses.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonProject gallerySee allShow lessPreparing for a New World: What We Are Doing, Together With YouArchitecture NewsVittorio Gregotti, to be Continued: Hashim Sarkis’ Tribute to the Late ArchitectArticles Share AKT Bumpers Oast House / ACMESave this projectSaveBumpers Oast House / ACMESave this picture!© Jim Stephenson+ 45Curated by Paula Pintos Share Architects: ACME Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

The app is already in use at Tesco stores in Ireland, and will now be piloted in ten Tesco stores around the UK.Tesco reports that 55,400 tonnes of food were wasted within its operations in the last year, around 30,000 tonnes of which could otherwise have been eaten. The trial aims to redirect that surplus food from Tesco stores to people in need. It “will mean eliminating the need to throw away food in Tesco stores that could otherwise be eaten”.Tesco store managers will use the FareShare FoodCloud app to alert charities to the amount of surplus food they have at the end of each day. The charity then confirms it wants the food, picks it up free of charge from the store and turns it into meals for those in need.FareShare will pass it to charities such as homeless hostels, women’s refuges and breakfast clubs for disadvantaged children. All charities will be supported by FareShare to ensure they are using this surplus food safely.center_img FareShare has been working with Tesco on food waste for the past three years.Dave Lewis, Tesco CEO said:“We don’t throw away much food in our own operations but even the 1% we do throw away amounts to 55,400 tonnes. To reduce this amount even further, we’ll be working in partnership with FareShare FoodCloud to ensure any food left unsold in our stores at the end of each day is given to local charities.He added:“This is potentially the biggest single step we’ve taken to cut food waste, and we hope it marks the start of eliminating the need to throw away edible food in our stores.”Lindsay Boswell, FareShare CEO said:“FareShare already has a long standing partnership with Tesco and the development of the FareShare FoodCloud is a natural evolution of this. We understand that customers get angry when they see food being wasted in their local store. We do too and that is why we have spent 20 years developing our successful charity redistribution model”.Charities and community groups can register their interest in FareShare FoodCloud.Last month the French government made it illegal for supermarkets to throw away edible food, requiring them to donate unsold edible food to charities.

Families, community demand California attorney general prosecute killer cops

first_imgBy Bryan G. Pfeifer and Terri KayWW photo: Bryan G. PfeiferOakland, Calif. — As part of the escalating campaign to demand that California Attorney General Kamala Harris prosecute killer cops, the Justice for Alan Blueford Coalition sponsored an hours-long militant protest and civil disobedience at the State Building in downtown Oakland on Feb. 13.In addition to the mother of Alan Blueford (Jeralynn Blueford), family representatives of Oscar Grant (Cephus Johnson), Gary King Jr. (Cathy King), James Rivera Jr. (Dionne Smith), Ernest Duenez Jr. (Christina Arechiga), Kayla Moore (Maria Moore), Charles Burns (Angela Burns), Jesse Hamilton (Elijah Hamilton) and Obataiye Tamirr Lewis Edwards (Wanda Sabir) spoke. Ramon Cairo, a representative from the Justice for Andy Lopez coalition, spoke as well.Protesters from throughout the Bay Area and beyond kicked off the protest with a loud and strong picket line, chanting “Killer cops have gotta go!” and other chants demanding that Harris prosecute killer cops. Protesters held handmade placards with the names of those killed by police.Jeralynn Blueford opened the rally by describing how her son was ruthlessly killed by Oakland Police Department officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. Then, family member after family member described in heart-wrenching detail how their loved ones — all working-class, and Black, Latino/a, Native, transgender and white — were killed by police officers. All described how the killing of their loved one by police is part of an epidemic of police terror in the U.S., aimed at oppressed communities in particular.Former Black Panther Elaine Brown said the police operate as an occupying force on behalf of Wall Street and suggested that part of the “Prosecute Killer Cops” campaign should include protesting Harris at her speaking engagements and electoral campaign events.  Chris Finn, of American Transit Union Local 1555, spoke on behalf of labor. Josh Healey read his own letter to Harris, asking, “What if it was your child called Raheim or Gary or Andy Lopez?”Seven arrested demanding to see AGAs part of the protest, seven labor and community activists conducted civil disobedience inside the building. They held a banner demanding that Harris prosecute Masso, the OPD officer who killed Alan Blueford. They also held signs, each representing a different victim of a police killing in California. Chanting with the crowd outside, they demanded that the attorney general, who has an office in the building, send a representative to hear the groups’ demands.The protesters inside refused to leave the building until Harris, or her representative, came out. When the building was closed at 6 p.m., the state of California sent out about 30 officers in full riot gear from the Special Response Team.  According to one of the officers on the scene, they have been set up with special federal grant money to deal with protestors and “terrorists.”The seven people conducting the civil disobedience were arrested, as was their legal observer and lawyer, Anne Weills, despite an explicit agreement with the police that she would be allowed to leave the building after witnessing all of the arrests.The protesters arrested included Christina Arechiga, George Cammerota, Mollie Costello, Tova Fry, Forrest Schmidt, and Dave Welsh. They were taken to Santa Rita County Jail, where they were held for nine to 16 hours. The seven are being charged with refusal to disperse and have a hearing date on March 13 at 9 a.m.For information, updates and more, visit justice4alanblueford.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Editor of pro-Iranian news website gets early release

first_img RSF_en Receive email alerts Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh June 8, 2021 Find out more April 9, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Ramin Bayramov, the editor of the pro-Iranian news website Islamazeri.com, was granted an early release on 17 August after serving 13 months of an 18-month jail sentence on trumped-up drugs and firearms charges.”Bayramov spent more than a year in detention just for expressing views critical of the authorities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Other journalists, such as Anar Bayramli in Azerbaijan and Farid Huseyn and Shahriyar Hajizade in Iran, continue to be hostages to the diplomatic tension between the two countries. They must be freed at once and granted due process.” Arrested on 11 July 2011, on the same day as several leaders of the Islamic opposition, Bayramov was initially charged with “activities hostile to Azerbaijan” before being convicted on a charge of illegal possession of firearms and drugs (see below).——09.03.2012 – Online journalist sentenced to 18 months in prisonReporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn that a court in the Baku district of Absheron yesterday sentenced online journalist Ramin Bayramov, the editor of the Islamazeri.az website, to 18 months in prison on charges of illegal possession of drugs and firearms. He has been detained since 11 July 2011.“Bayramov is almost certainly just the latest victim of a crackdown on pro-Iranian religious sectors in Azerbaijan,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Baku and Tehran must stop making journalists pay for the diplomatic dispute they are waging. Freedom of expression and information must be respected and Bayramov must be allowed the right to express his views whatever they may be.”There have been doubts about the reasons for his arrest from the outset. He was arrested on same day as one of the leaders of the Azerbaijani Islamic Party (IPA), Arif Ganiyev, and it was initially reported that the National Security Ministry suspected Bayramov of having links with the Iranian Cultural Centre in Baku and belonging to the radical Shiite group Jafari.But the prosecutor’s office nonetheless decided to charge him under criminal code articles 228.1 (illegal possession of firearms) and 234.1 (illegal possession of drugs). Ganiyev was convicted on the same charges on 26 January.The Islamazeri.az website covers Azerbaijani politics and current affairs from a conservative viewpoint that is critical of the government. It has, for example, opposed the government’s ban on wearing the hijab in schools.Photo :http://goo.gl/1SwF8 AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News August 20, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Editor of pro-Iranian news website gets early release center_img News Organisation “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News Help by sharing this information June 4, 2021 Find out more News to go further Follow the news on Azerbaijanlast_img read more
