How I’d invest £10k in this FTSE 100 stock market crash to make a passive income

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The FTSE 100’s crash has caused the index’s dividend yield to spike to its highest ever level of around 6%. But there is a problem facing investors. Many of the index’s members either have, or are likely to, cut their dividend payments in response to an uncertain economic outlook.As such, making a passive income may be relatively challenging in the short run. In the long term though, there appear to be numerous opportunities to benefit from the FTSE 100’s recent crash. That is because many dividend stocks trade on attractive valuations and offer recovery potential. Investing £10k, or any other amount, in them could yield an appealing passive income.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…Short term/long termIn the short run, a number of FTSE 100 companies are unlikely to reduce their dividends by a significant amount. They include defensive stocks for which an economic downturn should not have a significant impact on their financial performance. True, they may not be among the highest yields on offer. But companies operating across the utility sector and in sectors like tobacco are likely to produce high income returns in the coming months.Over the long term, the economy’s track record suggests that a recession is unlikely to last in perpetuity. Moreover, the economy has successfully moved from recession to a period of positive growth following every previous downturn.This could mean FTSE 100 dividend stocks that have cut their dividends in recent weeks go on to reinstate them. And they could offer strong dividend growth in the long run. Their prices trade at low levels today, in many cases at levels not been since the last global recession. So there could be buying opportunities for investors who do not require a passive income in the short run.Portfolio potentialOf course, buying a small number of FTSE 100 shares to generate a passive income is not a good idea even during more benign market conditions. Building a portfolio containing a diverse range of stocks that operate in different industries and regions is likely to reduce your overall risks. This can also enhance your dividend growth opportunities in the long run.Furthermore, purchasing the market leaders in a specific industry could be a means of successfully navigating the economic challenges that may be ahead. Companies with dominant market positions may have wider economic moats that increase their chances of survival. They may even be able to extend their market share to strengthen their potential to raise shareholder payouts in the coming years.Relative volatilityInvesting in FTSE 100 shares today for a passive income is likely to be a more volatile experience than holding cash, bonds or other income-producing mainstream assets. However, the FTSE 100’s crash means that many dividend stocks now offer excellent value for money. That means they could provide an attractive passive income in the long run.

Mic’d up Adam Jones will make you smile, and definitely need subtitles

first_imgThursday Nov 16, 2017 Mic’d up Adam Jones will make you smile, and definitely need subtitles Welsh front row legend Adam Jones was mic’d up during Harlequins’ recent A League match against Saracens Storm. The Quins player/coach was full of praise for his team sideline, with his excitable verbal diarrhea resulting in all sorts of Jonesisms.Unlike other times when we’ve seen players mic’d up, his accent required subtitles to be understood. Either way, he comes across as a quality guy and a top man to have as your coach.The fact that he might still lace up his boots makes things all the more enjoyable.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House NA / Sou Fujimoto Architects

first_imgPhotographs:  Iwan Baan Text description provided by the architects. You may remember Sou Fujimoto Architects radical House NA from this video we shared with you last November. Designed for a young couple in a quiet Tokyo neighborhood, the 914 square-foot transparent house contrasts the typical concrete block walls seen in most of Japan’s dense residential areas. Associated with the concept of living within a tree, the spacious interior is comprised of 21 individual floor plates, all situated at various heights, that satisfy the clients desire to live as nomads within their own home.

Save this picture!© Iwan BaanDescribed as “a unity of separation and coherence”, the house acts as both a single room and a collection of rooms. The loosely defined program and the individual floor plates create a setting for a range of activities that can take place at different scales. The house provides spaces of intimacy if two individuals choose to be close, while also accommodating for a group of guests by distributing people across the house. Sou Fujimoto states, “The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another in its unique relativity. To hear one’s voice from across and above, hopping over to another branch, a discussion taking place across branches by members from separate branches. These are some of the moments of richness encountered through such spatially dense living.” Save this picture!elevation 01Ranging in size from 21 to 81 square-feet, each floor plate is linked by a variety of stairs and ladders, including short runs of fixed and movable steps. Stratifying floor plates in a furniture-like scale allows the structure to serve many types of functions, such as providing for circulation, seating and workings spaces. Save this picture!© Iwan BaanThe short-spans allow for the thinness of the white steel frame. Complemented by the thin white-tinted birch flooring, many wonder where the utilities are hidden. Some floor plates are equipped with in-floor heating to help during the winter months, while strategically placed fenestration maximizes air flow and provides the only source of ventilation and cooling during summer. Save this picture!diagram 01The HVAC and plumbing equipment, as well as storage and lateral bracing are located in the thick, north-facing wall at the rear of the house. Additional lateral bracing is provided by a full-height bookshelf and lightweight concrete panels integrated within the side elevations. Additionally, curtains were installed to provide temporary partitions that address the concern for privacy and separation. Save this picture!© Iwan BaanSou Fujimoto states, “The white steel-frame structure itself shares no resemblance to a tree. Yet the life lived and the moments experienced in this space is a contemporary adaptation of the richness once experienced by the ancient predecessors from the time when they inhabited trees. Such is an existence between city, architecture, furniture and the body, and is equally between nature and artificiality.” Save this picture!© Iwan BaanFollow this link to view more images of House NA!Project gallerySee allShow less2012 ONE Prize Competition: BLIGHT TO MIGHTArticlesYabao Hi-Tech Enterprises Headquarter Park / 10 DesignArticles Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Iwan Baan+ 12 Share House NA / Sou Fujimoto ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse NA / Sou Fujimoto Architects Architects: Sou Fujimoto Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Houses Japan Projectscenter_img CopyAbout this officeSou Fujimoto ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidentialHousesJapanPublished on April 30, 2012Cite: “House NA / Sou Fujimoto Architects” 30 Apr 2012.

Month-long strikes in France reach decisive week

first_imgJanuary 5 marks the 32nd day of a strike involving hundreds of thousands of French workers against the Macron government’s plan for pension “reform.” The current retirement systems would be replaced by a single system based on “points” that a worker would accumulate. The over-65 poverty rate in France is currently the lowest in Europe, but this could change rapidly. In almost all cases, the unions leading this long, political strike have established that this new pension system would be less secure than the current ones and have a smaller payout.  The French Communist Party has charged that this new plan is also a “wily maneuver” to open up France’s retirement plan to partial privatization that would benefit the multibillion dollar U.S. hedge fund BlackRock.The week beginning Jan. 6 could be decisive, with an intensification of the strikes and negotiations between some unions and the government.Philippe Martinez, head of the CGT (General Confederation of  Labor),has called for national demonstrations Jan. 9 and Jan. 11. The call has been supported by the other major trade union confederations in the coalition that organized the strike —  FO, CFE-CGC, FSU (Workers Force, French Confederation of Management-General Confederation of Executives, United Union Federation, respectively) — and Solidaires, a union confederation that’s a left-wing split from CFDT.  The CGT position is that the government’s proposal on retirement has to be withdrawn, but the current systems also need to be improved.Martinez supported the call of the CGT-Energie to blockade all the refineries and fuel depots in France for four days beginning Tuesday, Jan.7. He said, “We support going on strike everywhere, not just in the refineries.” Elisabeth Borne, minister of ecology and transitions, declared that these blockades were illegal and service stations would be fully supplied. Martinez responded on LCI, a French cable channel, saying Borne “gives a lot of lessons to us French, talks a lot, but not always with full knowledge.”The CGT affiliate in the French ports and docks has called for an “operation dead ports,” a total shutdown of all trade on Jan. 9.Workers in the electrical distribution company EDF, who have given low-cost electric service to low-income customers and cut power to police stations, banks and tax offices, have gotten encouragement from the CGT. The federation and its allies in the labor movement consider such acts part of “French workers constitutionally protected right to strike.” Of course, the government claims they are illegal.‘Time for government to listen to workers’ demands’After 33 days of striking, Martinez told LCI that it was time for the government to “listen” to the demands that the social movements — Yellow Vests, workers, farmers — have made these past few years. “They have to leave their bubble of self-satisfaction and understand that there are problems in this country that are necessary to fix.”  (LCI, Jan. 6)Laurent Berger, the head of the largest French labor confederation, the CFDT (French Democratic Confederation of Labor), which has a reputation as a nonmilitant, accommodating union, was interviewed on France2’s nightly news program “20Hours” on Jan. 5. He explained that the CFDT did support a single retirement system, using points, but found the government’s insistence on setting a fixed age to retire “useless” and “unjust.”  When the government refused to budge on this feature of the plan, the CFDT began to fully support the strike.Berger pointed out that public opinion in France is strongly against the government’s proposal, even stronger in the area around and including Paris where the disruption of train service has been the most severe. People interviewed on French TV have often said that the unions are right and are fighting for the future of all workers, whatever their age.The strike support fund set up by the CGT to accept donations from the general public has received over 2 million euros from all over the country since Dec. 5 when the strike began.The Macron government’s arrogant inflexibility is meeting well organized, massive, militant working-class resistance. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The report specifically states that homeownership is a great way to build one’s wealth. Economists have long studied homeownership’s links to wealth, and have found owning a home to especially be beneficial in wealth-building in regards to low-income housing.In fact, First American was so adamant about how integral homeownership was in building wealth, the experts revealed that it is among one of the biggest factors: “For the majority of households that transition into homeownership, the most recent data reinforces that housing is one of the biggest positive drivers of wealth creation.”Speaking of data, the 2019 Survey of Consumer Finances, which collects various pertinent information regarding households’ finances, showed that the average homeowner possesses a staggering 40 times the household wealth of a renter (specific data pointed to roughly $254,900 for the homeowner versus $6,270 for the renter).The results of the survey do not reveal any direct cause and effect, and no expert insight is given regarding the distribution of wealth either. In light of this, when studying the variance between the wealth of renters and homeowners by income, it further strengthens the proof of the impressive wealth-building power that comes with homeownership.Specifically, data reveals that homeowners are wealthier than renters across the board, in every single income bracket (the one exception being the very top income bracket). To give you an idea with specific numbers, the income group of earners making the least amount of money—who were homeowners— posted an average net worth of $102,500. In contrast, renter households in that same income bracket were worth only $1,500. The report further revealed that in this lowest income category, 92% of total homeowner net worth was directly connected to the specific value of the residence.

Philadelphia police apologize for behavior at protests, declare end to using tear gas

first_imgamphotora/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(PHILADELPHIA) — Philadelphia’s mayor and police commissioner apologized for using tear gas on protesters earlier this month and issued a moratorium on the practice after weeks of criticism.Mayor Jim Kenney told reporters Thursday he was compelled to speak out against his officers’ actions during a June 1 protest on Interstate 676 after watching a New York Times video that showed dozens of protesters blasted with tear gas.“Members of the department made decisions on use-of-force that were completely unacceptable,” he said at a news conference.Kenney added that his previous statements in support of the police actions were based on “inaccurate information” and apologized to residents.Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said she is taking several actions in response to the tear gas incident. She placed a moratorium on using the weapon to disperse crowds that “includes any persons who are peacefully assembling or passively resisting.”An unidentified officer who was involved with pepper spraying a protester is under investigation and will be suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss, according to Outlaw. His incident has also been referred to Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner.Deputy Commissioner of Special Operation Dennis Wilson told reporters he was the commanding officer who gave approval for the use of tear gas and didn’t call the commissioner.“I did this based on what I could see from my position, and also what I had been hearing on the radio,” he said at the news conference.Wilson said he will take an immediate demotion for his actions.Several protesters have been sharing videos that appear to show excessive force from officers during the protests, and are calling for reform. Christina Sorenson, a protester who was pepper-sprayed in the face, told reporters at a news conference that the city’s apologies and actions so far weren’t enough.“The reason I was out there was because of systemic violence and a lack of investment in communities to allow for true public safety, and nothing that they announced today, to me, showed that,” she said at a news conference with her attorney.Meanwhile, members of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, the officers’ union, said they were furious over the commissioner’s move.“To the officers out there, the message is be careful. Call us if you need us. No one has your back,” FOP Lodge 5 President John McNesby told ABC affiliate WPVI.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

What questions will they ask me?On 16 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Iam in my first HR role, which I moved across into from an admin post, and havebeen made redundant. Can you give some advice on what HR-related questions Icould expect to receive at interviews so I can prepare accordingly?CliveSussams, recruitment consultant, Malpas Flexible LearningAsyou are at a very early stage of your career and have been performingadministration duties, typical interview questions will focus on system andanalysis skills, together with the depth of your HR knowledge, including theextent of advice you give on a daily basis. You should emphasis your HR careeraspirations and, if you are not already studying, give details of your plan toattain CIPD membership.PeterLewis, consultant, Chiumento Questionsthat you may well be asked and should be well prepared for may include:Whathave been your main achievements in your career to date?Whatare your strengths and weaknesses?Howeasy did you find it to make the transition from administration to HR?Whatwere the biggest challenges that you have faced in your last role?Whathave been your greatest achievements in your last HR position?Whatrelevant HR experience and achievements can you bring to us?Whatareas of HR are you particularly interested in? Whatdo you think are the main employment issues facing the HR function?Howproactive do you think the role of HR should be within a company? Why?Ifwe offered you a position, what would be the main goals that you would setyourself in the first three months?Wouldyou be interested in undertaking an HR-related qualification?LouiseWhite, consultant, EJ Human ResourcesYoudon’t say how long you were in your HR role for, so it is difficult to gaugethe level of questioning you might come up against. Assuming that you arelooking for a junior officer role, I wouldn’t expect too many heavily technicalquestions at this level. Attitude at this stage is more important and futureemployers will want to know that you have a strong customer service ethic, aflexible attitude and a willingness to learn. Iwould suggest that you break your previous role down into categories and thinkof examples of work you have done in each area. This way you will be able toget across the depth of your experience if asked specific questions. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more
