Shock as Milburn joins the coalition

first_img DEPUTY Prime Minister Nick Clegg risked tipping the coalition into all-out war yesterday when he appointed a third former Labour minister as an adviser to the government.In a shock move ultra-Blairite Alan Milburn was named “social mobility tsar”, in a role that appears to encroach on cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith’s remit. A spokesman for Number 10 declined to elaborate on a prepared statement which briefly confirmed the unpaid appointment.The role will “look at how the policies of major institutions, the professions, business and government are contributing towards the goal of a more socially mobile society.” Clegg will set out further details in a speech on Wednesday. Milburn’s appointment follows that of former Labour ministers John Hutton and Frank Field, who will advise on pensions and poverty respectively.Senior Tories were tight lipped last night but are understood to be privately furious at the implication the talent could not be found in-house.The appointment is a clear sign from Clegg that he is prepared to anger the Tories in order to push through his liberal agenda.The appointment has also raised the backs of senior Labour figures. Former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott branded the three “collaborators” and leadership hopeful Andy Burnham said they were justifying the coalition.

Altman could signal a move to the centre because he is closely associated with moderate economic policies of the Clinton administration.He served two stints at the Treasury Department, first in 1977-81 as assistant secretary in the administration of President Jimmy Carter, and second in 1993-94 as deputy secretary under President Bill Clinton.Summers’ replacement will play an important role in helping Obama find new ways to boost the economy.

It pointed out there was no change to social housing rents for existing tenants, which is relevant to almost half of the company’s customer base.Peter Crook, chief executive of Provident Financial, said continuing favourable trends for the business helped “reinforce management’s confidence of delivering a good result for the year.” Tags: NULLcenter_img Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:05 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”Wanderoam Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

Has peace broken out between bankers and politicians? Has the government caved in to the masters of the universe – or brought them to heal? And is it safe now to mention at dinner parties that you work in the City?There are many different sides claiming victory, but it is undoubtedly true that most of the government wants peace to break out.Certain members of the left might want a permanent war against bankers, since they are such a useful political enemy – just as Hugo Chavez has a permanent war with the Venezuelan middle classes. With a politically-motivated war, no punishment is enough, because the politics won’t change. Whatever pound of flesh is given, the insatiable cry would go up “we need more blood”.But the Prime Minister and chancellor know that no responsible government can be in permanent war with the most profitable – and highest tax-paying – part of the economy. The chancellor crowed at the Conservative Party conference that he has introduced the first permanent banking levy. He thundered in parliament this week that London now has the most stringent bonus regime in the world. Aren’t the bank bashers satisfied?The government thinks not – it wants to reach a settlement with banks, whereby it holds back on any new bonus clampdown, in return for banks increasing lending to small companies.These are strange times indeed, and awkward for the Conservatives. They don’t want a new bonus tax, but it had a 97 per cent public approval rating and would fill a big fiscal hole. The Conservatives are fundamentally free-market, but politics dictates they must boast about introducing pay controls in private companies, and tell banks how much to lend. It was politicians forcing banks to lend to causes that were morally worthy but not creditworthy that led to the subprime crisis, and sparked the banking implosion. The government must ensure the cure isn’t worse than the disease.Despite the peace moves, the coming weeks of bonus season are going to be politically febrile. It will be some time before peace really comes, and it is politically safe for politicians to talk up financial services once again.But even then, the threat to London as a financial centre will be far from over. Many policies damaging its competitiveness have been introduced, and in Brussels, where most financial services regulation comes from, they are unlikely to know that the war is over. Brussels’ grip over London’s financial services will probably prove to be the most profound legacy of this crisis, and the one that causes most problems in the long run.• Anthony Browne is an adviser to the Mayor of London. last_img read more

AIG freed for share sale after Fed payback

first_img Show Comments ▼ Friday 14 January 2011 2:11 pm whatsapp THE recapitalisation of bailed-out insurer American International Group has closed, clearing the way for the US government to sell its 92 per cent stake.AIG has repaid the Federal Reserve Bank of New York $47bn (£30bn), the US Treasury said, which includes the outstanding balance on the $85bn loan granted to the company in 2008.Bankers were buzzing on Friday about how soon a share sale might happen, with at least one saying he would not be surprised if the government picked the deal’s managers next week.The recapitalisation was intended to simplify AIG’s $182bn bailout by paying off the Federal Reserve and leaving the US Treasury as AIG’s majority owner. The Treasury now holds a cash investment in AIG of $68bn.“Treasury remains optimistic that taxpayers will get back every dollar of their investment in AIG,” Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said in a statement. The government stands to make a profit in the tens of billions of dollars on its AIG shares, given their appreciation over the last year.The Treasury spent all day Thursday meeting bankers in New York to find the right group to manage the stock sales. The CEOs of some of the world’s largest financial institutions appeared in person to make their case for what could be one of the ten largest share offers ever.Sources have said the banks’ proposals would includes fees of no more than 75 basis points – about $150m for the winning banks on a $20bn deal, but half the typical fee for a deal of this type and size.Some bankers said on Friday they would not be surprised, given the competitive nature of the deal, if the fees went even lower – although one banker pointedly noted he had no interest in doing the deal for free. whatsapp Sharecenter_img Read This Next’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe WrapHow HGTV’s ‘Renovation Island’ Changed Bryan and Sarah Baeumler’sThe Wrap’Bridgerton’ Stars Phoebe Dynevor and Nicola Coughlan on Daphne andThe WrapBest Wine Gifts & Wine Accessories at Every PriceGayot’Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife’ Earns $17 Million 5-Day Opening as Box OfficeThe WrapFox News’ Mark Levin Says Capitol Riot Suspects ‘Would Be Treated Better’The WrapEverything We Know, or Think We Know, About the Time-Keepers on ‘Loki’The Wrap’The Crown’: What Went Into Finding Princess Diana and Margaret ThatcherThe Wrap by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald alison.lock AIG freed for share sale after Fed payback Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Senators Schumer and Hatch file federal sports betting bill

first_img Topics: Sports betting Regions: US Senators Schumer and Hatch file federal sports betting bill AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newslettercenter_img Legislation would require all states to secure approval from Attorney General for sports betting regulatory framework Email Address 19th December 2018 | By contenteditor Senators Chuck Schumer and Orrin Hatch have filed their long-awaited legislation to regulate sports betting across the US.The Sports Wagering Market Integrity Act of 2018 has been filed following months of speculation and a discussion draft, which was circulated among Senators earlier this month. It aims to establish federal oversight of sports betting across the US, with the goal of pushing illegal operators out of the market.It proposes a system under which US states must have their sports betting regulations approved by the Department of Justice. Each state would be required to submit an application setting out their proposed regulatory framework, as well as nominating a body to regulate the market.Each state’s attorney general or chief legal officer would also be required to provide assurances that the proposals, to the best of their knowledge, would allow for effective oversight of the state’s sports betting market.The US Attorney General would then have 180 days to assess and approve the plan, or reject it if they feel it does not set out a plan for effectively regulating the market. Upon approval, the regulations would be valid for three years, after which the states must apply for a renewal.Applicants would have to adhere to a series of standards set out in the Senators’ bill. States would be permitted to offer in-person wagering and online wagering, either restricted to state borders or across borders as long as a compact with another jurisdiction has been established. These compacts must also be approved by the US Attorney General.All states would have to use geolocation technology to ensure only customers located within approved borders can place wagers. Each state must also establish approved criteria for events on which wagers can be placed; all must be verifiable, generated by a reliable and independent process, and unlikely to be affected by betting.The bill also prohibits wagering on amateur sports, with exceptions for the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, Pan-American Games and certain intercollegiate sports. States would also have the power to give operators notice that they are unable to offer wagering on certain events.In spite of all the talk of so-called integrity fees for the US professional sports leagues being included in the legislation, this appears to have been excised. However, the bill does mandate that all licensed sports betting operators must only use data provided either directly from the leagues, or authorised resellers, until December 31, 2024.It sets out a number of social responsibility measures, such as controls regarding bonus terms and conditions, which must be made clear to all participants, while advertising must include responsible gambling information.Each state that regulates sports betting would also be required to establish a self-exclusion database for players. This would feed into a national self-exclusion database, which would be administered by the National Sports Wagering Clearinghouse, a new non-profit organisation.The National Sports Wagering Clearinghouse will also be responsible for upholding sports betting integrity, monitoring activity for suspicious transactions and gathering anonymised sports betting data. It would also work on ways of tackling gambling addiction.The body would be funded via a federal excise tax on sports betting handle that has been in place since 1982 and, according to the bill, would be 0.25% of handle. This is estimated to bring in around $12m a year, with this sum set to rise as more states pass regulations.The funds raised from this excise tax will be deposited into the Wagering Trust Fund, with $3m to be used to fund the Clearinghouse, and $5m for the monitoring and treatment of gambling addiction.At the time of writing, the Sports Wagering Market Integrity Act of 2018 is yet to be assigned an official number or assigned to committee.“This bill is the first step toward ensuring that sports betting is done right in the states that choose to legalize it,” Hatch commented. “Just as importantly, it provides protections for states that choose not to go down that path. For the better part of this year, I have engaged with and learned from stakeholders on all sides of this issue – the gaming industry, professional and amateur sports leagues, consumer advocates, data providers, law enforcement, and many others.  The result of those discussions is a comprehensive bill that tackles numerous, complex issues and includes provisions to protect the interests of each of those stakeholders.”Schumer added that he felt Congress had an obligation to act following the repeal of PASPA to ensure the integrity of sports was not compromised.“That is why I believe the time is now to establish a strong national integrity standard for sports betting that will protect consumers and the games themselves from corruption,” he explained. “The bipartisan legislation that Senator Hatch and I have introduced, follows the principles laid out in the federal framework that I released in August and will serve as solid foundation upon which we build the appropriate guardrails around the burgeoning sports betting industry.“I will strongly advocate for this bill to move forward and for Congress to vote to pass federal legislation very soon.”last_img read more

The company’s former finance chief Graham Stretch supported the operator, and aided the search for de Beauregard’s replacement, during the transition period.Earlier today, Kindred reported an 11.3% rise in first quarter revenue to £249.7m €286.4m/$307.8m. The operator’s profit fell to £1.0m, but it said a number of exceptional costs incurred during the period made it difficult to compare results on a year-over-year basis.

Swiss lottery revenue exceeds CHF1bn in 2019

first_img30th June 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Revenue from gambling organised by Swiss lotteries came to just over CHF1bn (£857.3m/€939.0m/$1.05bn) in 2019, according to the latest annual report from the Inter-Cantonal Lotteries and Betting Commission (Comlot), which said the numbers show licensed oeprators were regaining market share from offshore competitors.The CHF1.01bn in revenue was made up of CHF998.6m in what Comlot referred to as the “large games” – intercantonal or online games and sports betting operated by either Swisslot or Loterie Romande – plus a further CHF10.4m from small charitable lotteries. The large games’ revenue, which goes to the Swiss cantons to spend on social projects, came on sales of CHF3.02bn.The vast majority of large game revenue – CHF862.9m – came from retail sales. The online sector, meanwhile, recorded revenue of CHF135.6m.Breaking down the large games result further, physical lotteries brought in the majority of revenue, at CHF541.3m on sales of CHF1.15bn, while electronic lotteries brought in an additional CHF76.1m.Instant win games brought in revenue of CHF290.9m on sales of CHF742.7m. Sports betting contributed CHF58.0m, with customers staking CHF265.5m, while horse racing – conducted through Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU) – brought in a further CHF32.3m on stakes of CHF122.8m.Comlot said these figures showed licenced providers had been able to take back revenue from offshore operators.“These annual accounts are now able to substantiate with numbers what was previously only suspected: the modernized legal framework allows Swiss sports betting providers to regain market share from the illegal providers,” Comlot said.In Switzerland’s 20 German-speaking cantons – where gambling is operated by Swissloss – gross gaming revenue came to CHF590.5m. Lotteries were by far the most popular product, bringing in CHF379.7m. Instant win games followed with CHF169.1m, while sports betting brought in CHF38.2m and horse racing CHF3.5m.In Swisslos cantons, retail revenue came to CHF486.0m, with a further CHF104.5m coming from online.In the country’s six French-speaking cantons, where Loterie Romande operates gambling, CHF480.1m in gross gaming revenue was recorded. Traditional lotteries were not as popular in these areas, bringing in only CHF161.5m, while instant wins came close behind with CHF121.9m. All of the CHF76.1m made by electronic lotteries came from the French-speaking cantons.Sports betting brought in CHF19.8m, while horse racing revenue came to CHF28.8m.In Loterie Romande cantons, retail revenue made up more than 90% of overall revenue, at CHF376.9m. Online revenue came to just CHF31.1m.Zurich, the largest canton by population, brought in the most revenue for lotteries and sports betting at CHF90.2m and CHF9.3m respectively. Vaud, the most populous Loterie Romande canton, brought in the most revenue on instant win games at CHF47.5m, horse racing at CHF10.7m and electronic lotteries at CHF30.5m. Lotteries were the largest source of revenue in every canton, but in the French-speaking Jura, sales were higher for instant win games.Comlot noted that the average Swiss resident – including non-gamblers – spent CHF351 on large games in 2019, winning back CHF235 for a net loss of CHF116.The CHF10.4m in revenue from small lotteries came from 431 separate lotteries. These lotteries have a maximum prize pool of CHF500,000 if the proceeds go towards something “of national importance” and a maximum prize pool of CHF100,000 otherwise. A total of 44 lotteries were approved for the larger sum.The cantons of Bern, Geneva and Zürich had the largest revenue from small lotteries, each exceeding CHF1m. Ticino was the canton with the most small lottery draws, at 204.As 2019 was the first year of the Swiss regulated market, no reasonable year-on-year comparisons could be made, Comlot noted.Comlot itself recorded revenue for the year of CHF3.0m and a budget surplus of CHF372,933. It approved 35 new games for Loterie Romande, and 14 from Swisslos.Comlot also noted that during 2019, it started issuing blocking orders to internet service providers restricting access of many unlicensed gambling sites. Among the 88 sites blocked in 2019 were two from bet365 and esports betting operators such as Unikrn and GG.bet. A further raft of blocking orders were issued in March of this year.

Health Lottery increases good causes funding to 25.5%

first_img Email Address Health Lottery increases good causes funding to 25.5% AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 13th July 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle British society lottery The Health Lottery will increase the percentage of its funding that goes towards good causes by a quarter to 25.5%. British society lottery The Health Lottery will increase the percentage of its funding that goes towards good causes by a quarter to 25.5%.The lottery said it made the decision to raise its contribution level from 20.34% to 25.5% due to the “financial damage caused to the charity sector due to the Covid-19 crisis”.“The Covid-19 crisis has left many charities and projects in a vulnerable position,” Martin Ellice, joint group managing director of The Health Lottery, said. “That’s the reason we have taken the decision to increase the level of contribution by over 25%, allowing us to support the health inequality projects that are so important to local communities.“Every single one of the charities and projects funded through The Health Lottery carries out wonderful work and it’s of paramount importance that we keep them alive.”The Health Lottery currently operates 12 regional and country lotteries across Great Britain. Each month, a portion of the revenue collected from these lotteries is allocated to charities dedicated to tackling health inequalities in the region. Since its launch in 2011, The Health Lottery has raised more than £115m for more than 3,000 charities or projects.“There has never been a more important time in living memory than now to ensure that we support the phenomenal work carried out by the thousands of charities and projects across the length and breadth of Great Britain – many of whom are in desperate need of funding,” Ellice saidIn December 2019, Health Lottery operator Northern & Shell told iGB that it was interested in bidding for the rights to operate the UK’s National Lottery when the tender process opens this year. Northern & Shell said that after 25 years under Camelot’s control, it was “time for a change” to the lottery’s management when the current contract expires.Last month, a Camelot spokesperson said that the operator has received notice in writing from the GB Gambling Commission to extend the Third Licence to run the National Lottery by six months until the end of July 2023. Meanwhile the tender process for the next licence has been delayed by three months from its previous launch date in “the first half of 2020”, suggesting a new launch date at some point this quarter.The initial launch date for the tender process had been in March 2020, and pushing back the launch led to criticism from potential bidders, who said that this reduced the chances of a serious challenge to Camelot’s tenure.center_img Regions: UK & Ireland Finance Topics: Finance Lottery Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Chilean tennis player fails in appeal against lifetime match-fixing ban

first_img Former Chilean professional tennis player Mauricio Alvarez-Guzman has had his appeal against a lifetime ban for match-fixing and corruption dismissed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The player was found to have attempted to manipulate the outcome of an ATP Challenger match in Meerbusch, Germany, in August 2016 by offering a player €1,000 (£885.69/$1,214) to lose a set. Section D.1.e relates to someone soliciting or facilitating a player to not use his or her best efforts in an event, while Section D.1.g covers the offering of any money, benefit or consideration to negatively influence a player’s best efforts. Email Address Tags: Tennis Match fixing Mauricio Alvarez-Guzman CAS 21st January 2021 | By Robert Fletcher The ruling comes after the ITIA earlier this month banned players from Egypt, Slovakia and Uzbekistan for offences related to sports betting and match-fixing. Chilean tennis player fails in appeal against lifetime match-fixing ban As a result, Alvarez-Guzman was issued with a lifetime ban, which, effective from 14 March 2019, meant he was permanently excluded from competing in or attending any event organised or sanctioned by the sport’s governing bodies. The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA), formerly known as the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), issued the ban in March 2019 after ruling Alvarez-Guzman’s actions breached the sport’s Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP). These were Section D.1.d, which states that “no covered person shall, either directly or indirectly, contrive or attempt to contrive the outcome or any other aspect of an event”.center_img Sports betting Topics: Sports betting Sports integrity Alvarez-Guzman was also found guilty of contriving the singles draw of the 2016 ITF F27 Futures tournament by purchasing a wild card for entry into the singles competition. However, the CAS dismissed the appeal, saying the original sanction of a lifetime ban remains unchanged and in place. Egypt’s Mostafa Hatem was banned for three years, with one year suspended, Temur Ismailov from Uzbekistan was handed a seven-year ban, with two years suspended, and Slovakia’s Dagmara Baskova a 12-year ban. Passing ruling on the case, independent anti-corruption hearing officer Charles Hollander found Alvarez-Guzman in breach of thee sections of the TACP. Alvarez-Guzman, who reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of 1,050 and had a doubles ranking-high of 672, appealed to the CAS to overturn the decision. Regions: Chile Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter At the time, the TIU said Alvarez-Guzman also intended to purchase a wild card for the doubles competition of the same event, and while this did not come to fruition, it still stood as a corruption offence. last_img read more

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Goldman Sachs warns of oil price reversal! Should you buy these FTSE 100 oil stocks for your ISA? Enter Your Email Address One oilie that has posted some monster gains in recent sessions is Royal Dutch Shell. The FTSE 100 colossus has barged through £23 per share and to two-and-a-half-month highs at the start of this week, propelled by the Brent benchmark rising through $70 per barrel for the first time since last May.And blue-chip rival BP just moved through the 500p marker and to levels not seen since the middle of November, too.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…It hasn’t exactly been a shock to see shares in the oil majors rising in the wake of rising tensions in the Middle East, as markets gear up for possible disruption in the supply of the black stuff. And further oil price gains could be just around the corner with this psychologically-critical milestone now fallen and signs that tensions in the politically-sensitive region are escalating.State of playNeither US President Donald Trump nor the Iranian authorities are showing any signs of dialling down the rhetoric at present. It’s clear that the Middle East is becoming an increasingly volatile powder keg that threatens world peace and that could also have severe implications for the global flow of oil. But are investor expectations of oil reaching ever higher highs because of this unrealistic? Well, the boffins at Goldman Sachs certainly suggest so.In a report released today, its analysts are suggesting that black gold prices may struggle to remain around current levels unless a significant disruption to supplies from the region transpires. The bank pointed out that recent trouble at the US Embassy in Baghdad took place away from nearby oil fields and that any Iranian actions may not take the form of moves on oil-producing assets.Goldman Sachs said that prices were already looking toppy following “an over-enthusiastic December risk-on rally in the face of limited evidence of a material acceleration in global growth,” and that prices now sit at a chunky premium to its “fundamental fair value” of $63 per barrel.This underlines the importance of investing in companies you believe in for the long term and not reacting to short-term price spikes (and we all hope this situation is short term and that some sense can prevail).What should you do?But with the political situation moving hour by hour it’s clear that no scenario can be ruled out, and that oil prices could defy the warnings of Goldman Sachs and keep shooting through the roof for a while. Still, I for one am not tempted to load up on the likes of BP or Shell right now.Those warnings from the investment bank add to my existing sense of unease as a slowing global economy, allied with rising oil production from non-OPEC nations, already casts a shadow over crude price forecasts. So despite the monster dividend yields offered by these Footsie oilies, I would rather use my hard-earned cash to invest elsewhere.

Forget buy-to-let! Here’s how I’d invest £10k to get rich

first_imgForget buy-to-let! Here’s how I’d invest £10k to get rich Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 16th February, 2020 Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Investing in buy-to-let property used to be an easy way to save for the future and generate a passive income.However, recent government changes to the tax regime, rising house prices and additional regulation for landlords have made it harder than ever to earn a passive income from rental property.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…Selling upThis explains why so many landlords are now selling up. According to HMRC, the number of buy-to-let landlords with multiple properties fell by 1.3% in the 2017/18 tax year. That’s the first decline since the financial crisis.The number of landlords with multiple properties has fallen even though it is cheaper than ever to borrow.Lenders are fighting over each other to offer the best rates, with a five-year fixed-rate mortgage now available with a rate of just 3.2%. That’s the lowest level since the financial crisis.The problem is, landlords are now no longer allowed to deduct all of their interest expenses from rental income, and that’s increased their costs.Therefore, the economics of buy-to-let investing have changed dramatically over the past three or four years. Consequently, it no longer makes sense for the average investor to own rental property.The stock marketWith this being the case, if you have £10,000 to invest, the stock market could be a better home for your money.Stock market investors have one advantage available to them that buy-to-let investors don’t. They can open a Stocks and Shares ISA.These products allow you to invest £20,000 a year in the stock market, with no tax obligations. Income and capital gains earned on investments inside a Stocks and Shares ISA do not attract either income tax or capital gains tax, however much money you make on your investments.What’s more, the stock market has the potential to produce much better returns than buy-to-let property over the next few decades.Over the past few decades, the FTSE 250 has produced an average annual return in the region of 12%. It is unlikely that this sort of performance will continue going forward, but it is not unrealistic to suggest that the index could produce high-single-digit per annum returns for the foreseeable future through a combination of income and capital growth.Achieving the same sort of returns from rental property is not impossible, but with the cost of doing business increasing, it’s going to be difficult for the average landlord to hit this target.Anyone can invest in the stock market. Indeed, most Stocks and Shares ISA providers will allow you to open an account with a nominal sum.Plenty of optionsA low-cost index tracker fund, tracking an index like the FTSE 250, is one way to invest in the market. You can also buy real estate investment trusts (REITs).These trusts invest in property on your behalf. As a result, you don’t have to worry about managing the properties or paying any additional tax. All you need to do is sit back and collect the income stream.Some of these trusts offer a dividend yield of 5% or more. This allows investors to build a ‘synthetic’ real estate portfolio with just a few clicks.When held in a Stocks and Shares ISA, there’s also no additional tax to pay, of course. That dramatically increases the appeal of owning REITs instead of physical property.  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.

3 FTSE 100 dividend stocks I’m buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Investors have rushed to sell FTSE 100 stocks over the past few weeks. However, some companies are now starting to look oversold.With that in mind, here are three FTSE 100 dividend stocks, which appear to have fallen too far too fast, that I’m buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA today.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…FTSE 100 income championShares in FTSE 100 income champion Phoenix Group Holdings (LSE: PHNX) have fallen by around 20% over the past few weeks. It is difficult to see why.The company is one of the largest pensions consolidators in Europe. It buys pension policies from other businesses and then manages them on behalf of retirees.Phoenix can use its economies of scale to reduce costs and earn better returns for savers.As the company is managing these assets with a multi-decade time horizon in mind, it is unlikely to be affected by any near-term economic uncertainty. That suggests the business is well placed to generate healthy profits for shareholders in the long run.Management seems to agree. Over the past few weeks, managers and directors have spent nearly half a million pounds boosting their stakes in this FTSE 100 dividend champion.With the company’s dividend yield currently standing at 7.6%, now could be a good time for income investors to follow suit.Pensions championFTSE 100 dividend leader Aviva (LSE: AV) operates a similar business model to that of Phoenix.The company manages pensions for millions of people across the UK. It also provides insurance services.Both of these are relatively defensive businesses. While the demand for pension planning and insurance might drop in the near term, over the long term, the need for these services is only likely to expand.Aviva is well-placed to weather the storm and come out stronger on the other side.A few weeks ago, the organisation announced that its solvency ratio as of 13 March was 175%, even after taking into account the final dividend payment for 2019. The company had a net cash position of £2.4bn.As such, now could be a great time to snap up a share in this FTSE 100 stalwart. The shares are currently dealing at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 4.7. They also offer a dividend yield of 12.4%. That seems too good to pass up in the current interest rate environment.Global diversificationInternational FTSE 100 financial services company Prudential (LSE: PRU) has also seen heavy selling by investors over the past few weeks.Earlier last week, management came out to reassure investors by saying that the organisation remains “financially resilient.” Even after the recent market turmoil, the group’s capital ratios are still well within management guidelines.What’s more, Prudential’s international diversification gives it a level of protection against business uncertainty in the US and UK. Management is so optimistic about the company’s prospects, the group recently bought out the minority partner of its Thai joint venture.With a dividend yield of 3.4% on offer, Prudential looks attractive as an income investment after the recent declines.The stock is also trading at a P/E of 6.4, its lowest valuation in more than five years.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Buying low and selling high. It’s a critical investment strategy that seems blindingly obvious to most of us. But it’s one that many share investors seem to be forgetting right now. It’s why there are mountains of top FTSE 100 dividend stocks that remain left on the shelf despite their rock-bottom prices.Economic downturns and stock market crashes are nothing new. They’re frightening and they take a bite out of our investment returns. However, studies show us that most share investors tend to make great returns even accounting for bouts of market volatility. Those that buy and hold stocks for the long run make an average annual return of between 8% and 10%.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…Snapping up cheap shares following the 2020 market crash gives us all a chance to maximise those returns. And the opportunities to buy some choice dividend shares remains strong despite some high-profile payout cuts in recent months.A 7%-yielding dividend stockFTSE 100 share Babcock International is one dividend share that’s attracting my attention today. At current prices the defence contractor carries a forward yield just shy of 7%. It trades on an ultra-low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of six times as well.Global defence spend has spiked in recent years and recent news flow suggests that this trend is set to continue. Sure, the economic consequences of Covid-19 will cause governments to scale back spending. But souring global diplomacy among major nations and a growing terrorist threat mean that arms-related expenditure will likely keep on rising. As an important supplier to Western militaries, Babcock International can therefore expect profits to keep racing ahead for some many years yet.Another FTSE 100 bargainI’d also pile into DS Smith at current prices. I bought into this FTSE 100 share a couple of years ago because it appealed to me as both an exciting growth and dividend stock. And fresh financials released last week reinforced my positivity.Then, the packaging giant said that soaring e-commerce sales continued to drive adjusted profits higher, as did rising demand for packaging made from sustainable sources. And the future remains very bright. As the business said, “the core market growth drivers of e-commerce, consumer and retail channel evolution and plastic substitution are more relevant than ever in the post-Covid-19 environment.”At current prices DS Smith trades on a forward P/E ratio of 11 times. It carries a bulky 4.6% dividend yield, too. And so I’d use recent price weakness as an opportunity to buy this FTSE 100 star.A 9% FTSE 100 yieldDirect Line Insurance Group also looks too good to miss at current prices. Today it can be snapped up on a forward P/E multiple of 11 times for 2020, though admittedly this isn’t why it catches my eye. Its 9% dividend yield makes it one of the best FTSE 100 income stocks to buy today.Even nervous investors can afford to buy Direct Line today. Even when people’s spending power falls during tough economic times like these their demand for general insurance remains robust. Sales of car insurance products, a specialty of this FTSE 100 insurer, stay particularly strong owing to its legal requirements. In my opinion the company’s cheap valuation doesn’t reflect its rock-hard defensive qualities and this makes it a top buy today. Image source: Getty Images.

The Tesco share price: I’d take this action right now

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. At 214p, the Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price is back down near its spring, coronavirus-crash low. Meanwhile, City analysts have pencilled in a robust double-digit percentage rebound in earnings for the trading year to February 2022.If this happens, earnings will then be within a whisker of what the company achieved in the year to February 2020. And that was before Covid-19 hit the economy.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…Does the Tesco share price undervalue the company?In an update near the end of June, chief executive Dave Lewis explained the costs of adapting the business for Covid-19 “have been significant.”  Meanwhile, business rates relief and increased sales volumes only partially offset those costs. Nevertheless, he expects operating profit for the retail operation to come in around flat this year compared to last year.However, Tesco will likely report a loss for its bank of between £175m and £200m in the current trading year. The directors think a surge in bad debts is coming because of fallen GDP and rising levels of unemployment. Overall profitability is “impacted in the short term,” the directors reckon. And the working assumption City analysts have is for a decline in overall earnings near 20% for the current trading year.Between the mid-March low and mid-May, the share price rebounded by around 20%. But now it’s dropped back again. Does that combination of circumstances make the stock attractive now? Not to me. I’ve been arguing for a while the business looks over-valued.In an article in April, for example, I said Tesco is “a low-margin, high-volume business operating in a cutthroat sector with disruptive competition nipping at its heels.” Indeed, the rise of agile competition from Aldi, Lidl and others appeared to blindside the entire established supermarket sector a few years ago. Tesco saw the collapse of its fragile profits and reducing turnover — factors that pulled the rug from under the share price.A challenging sectorLewis executed a masterful turnaround. And, for a while, we saw double-digit increases in annual earnings. But I reckon the stock market became too excited about those figures, and the valuation overshot to the upside. However, stripping out costs and improving efficiency can only go so far. And those tasty earnings rises were never going to continue.I reckon we’re now seeing the gradual unwinding of the over-valuation. To me, that’s one reason the shares are weak. And there isn’t much prospect of steady growth on the horizon. Instead, Tesco seems to be retreating from its global ambitions and aiming to build its defences against the onslaught from domestic competition.Meanwhile, the forward-looking dividend yield is just above 4% for next year. That’s insufficient compensation for the risks I’d be taking with an investment in Tesco. I’d want a yield above 5% at least.After all, the operating margin is running below 4%, which means the firm has little ammunition to fight back. I see the most likely outcome for Tesco’s business as a managed decline in the coming years, so I’m avoiding the shares.

Here’s how I’d invest £20k in 2021 to make a million

I like to follow in the footsteps of billionaire investor Warren Buffett. Both he and his friend and colleague, Charlie Munger, advocate a buy and hold approach to investing. This is a tried and tested method first made famous by value investor Benjamin Graham in his 1934 book, The Intelligent Investor.Deciding where and how to invest £20k£20k is a lot of money, so to put it to work I need to consider my options. I’d begin by deciding where to buy my stocks. I think a Stocks and Shares ISA or Self-invested Personal Pension (SIPP), through a reputable broker such as Hargreaves Lansdown or AJ Bell, is the best starting point.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…There will be fees incurred on each transaction, but fees on funds are lower than on individual equities. I’d probably allocate £3,000 to five individual stocks and the remaining £5k I’d split into five funds. If I hope to make a million, these need to be held for a minimum of five years, preferably many more.Make a millionIf I could guarantee a 12% effective annual return on my investment, I could invest £20k, leave it for 35 years and I’d be a millionaire, with a total sum of £1,055,992 accumulated. However, 12% every year for 35 years is pretty difficult to achieve. Therefore, if I could afford to top up my initial £20k investment, with a regular monthly sum, then I could achieve the millionaire mark at a lower interest rate.With a 9% effective annual rate, £230 a month deposit for 30 years, on top of my initial £20k investment, would result in a final sum of £1,032,282. Or, by upping the timeline and monthly amount to 43 years at £450 respectively, I’d bring the interest rate right down to a very achievable 5% and the final sum would be £1,008,775.While time, patience, and cash are a given, this goes to show it’s possible for ordinary people to become ISA millionaires.What stocks should I buy in 2021?With the likelihood of a vaccine rollout and normality returning in 2021, there may be less volatility in the UK stock markets. However, I don’t think that will be the case until later in the year. I believe the best way to invest £20k is to diversify my portfolio with a mixture of sectors and possibly countries, which may mean choosing an emerging markets fund or solid US stock. But with Brexit out of the way, the UK government wants to focus its efforts on ensuring the UK remains a financial hub of excellence. For this it will encourage investment in technology and financial stocks.Micro Focus is a tech company that helps companies upgrade and secure their systems. Security is a big issue as cyber attacks have massively increased during the pandemic and I think this will continue to be an area of growth next year. Augmentum Fintech is a venture capital company investing in fast growing fintech businesses. So, I might consider one of these.It can be difficult to know the best UK shares to buy now on my quest to make a million. I’d probably choose to invest £20k across fintech, oil, pharmaceuticals and emerging markets to ensure diversified exposure to several areas of growth.

Should I back the IAG and easyJet share prices in 2021?

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! If I had to pick out the worst-performing investments of 2020, the IAG (LSE: IAG) share price and easyJet (LSE: EZJ) share price would have to be strong contenders.In a year in which global air travel came to a virtual standstill, these two firms saw their sales and net income plunge. Both companies, which were formally some of the most fiscally healthy airlines in Europe, have had to rush to raise funds from investors to keep the lights on and planes in the sky.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…However, as the world starts to move on from the pandemic, I think these investments may begin to shine again in 2021. And with that being the case, I’m beginning to wonder if I should back the IAG share price and that of its smaller peer in the new year.Major headwinds Before the pandemic, easyJet was considered to be one of Europe’s best-run airlines. Now it’s not so clear.Nevertheless, what is clear is the fact that the group has managed to maintain its brand reputation. When the air travel market opened briefly over the summer, consumers flocked to the company. This helped support the easyJet share price, as it bought in some much-needed cash.Based on this, I think that if the business does manage to weather the storm, it could be a good investment in 2021. The company has claimed it has enough funding to get it through the pandemic in the near term. That’s incredibly positive. If true, when sales start to pick up again in the new year, easyJet could achieve a faster recovery than its peers.By comparison, I don’t think the IAG share price presents such an attractive proposition. The owner of the British Airways brand doesn’t have the same level of flexibility as its smaller peer. That’s something that concerns me.IAG share price concernsIAG’s flagship BA brand harvests the majority of its revenues from the lucrative Atlantic market between London and New York. The company controls most of the landing slots on this route in the UK, which gives it a strong competitive advantage.But in other markets, it doesn’t have a similar advantage. This could prove to be a problem over the next few years as other airlines fight each other for customers. Speaking from personal experience, I know that the BA offering is more expensive than that of easyJet across Europe, with the same level of comfort. In an economic recovery, consumers are unlikely to want to pay more for a similar product.As such, while I do believe the IAG share price could yield positive total returns for investors in the long run, I’d rather own the easyJet share price. In my opinion, the latter’s product should appeal to consumers much more in economic recovery. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Should I back the IAG and easyJet share prices in 2021?

How to make passive income from dividends in 2021 Setting up a passive income stream with whatever savings one has could be a very wise way to begin 2021. With the Covid-19 continuing to hold businesses back and unemployment levels likely to rise, having a second source of cash coming in never made more sense.Here’s how I’d get started.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…Passive income 101The first thing to sort before buying anything whatsoever is to open up a Stocks and Shares ISA. By doing so, I know that any dividends I receive won’t be taxed. That might mean saving only a few pence in the beginning, but it could amount to an awful lot of pounds as the years pass.As an aside, sheltering my investments in an ISA will also protect me from paying capital gains tax further down the line when I come to sell. Again, why would anyone want to hand back money to the government if they can legally avoid doing so?Buy the bestOnce an investor has an ISA ready to go, it’s time to buy some shares. Rather than dive in indiscriminately however, I’d look for the best of the best. The first thing I’d check for is whether a firm is actually paying dividends. Unfortunately, a lot of previously great dividend stocks are not currently giving anything back due to the coronavirus. This may be because they’d rather not or, more worryingly, because they simply can’t. Assuming a company is still providing holders with a passive income stream however, the next thing to check is whether the dividends are sustainable. The key thing to look at here is the dividend yield.As a rough rule of thumb, a yield greater than 6% usually requires further investigation. It suggests the market suspects this cash may not be returned. Since a yield can look massive when a share price has fallen heavily, it’s vital to check how a company is faring before buying its shares.  Another ratio to look at is the dividend cover. This is the extent to which dividends are covered by profits. A cover of two is ideal here. Anything less than one is best avoided. It means a company is tapping into its reserves to pay shareholders.A final thing to note is whether dividends have been/are increasing. A regularly-hiked payout suggests a business is growing and management is confident about the future. Stagnant dividends can point to a company treading water.Plan BIf picking individual stocks feels too risky, there’s another way of generating passive income. This involves buying what’s known as an exchange-traded fund. These cheap funds simply track a basket of shares rather than a single company. The iShares Core FTSE 100 UCITS ETF, for example, generates the same return as the FTSE 100 index. Most importantly, buying a product like the one above pays dividends. At the time of writing, the iShares ETF yields a very respectable 3.1%. That’s a lot more than I’d get from a Cash ISA!One last thingAlthough spending any dividends I receive from shares is tempting, I’m also aware that reinvesting this cash will make me considerably richer in time thanks to the brilliance of compound interest. While generating a second income in 2021 is wise, throwing whatever I receive back into the market is an even better plan.Receive, reinvest, repeat. That’s the Foolish way. Enter Your Email Addresslast_img read more

Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Buying gold today may seem to be a better idea than investing money in dirt-cheap shares. After all, the world economy faces an uncertain outlook in 2021. The coronavirus pandemic may cause further disruption, while political challenges may have a negative impact on GDP growth.However, buying undervalued stocks and holding them for the long run could be a more profitable move versus holding the precious metal. Their recovery prospects, low prices and track record of performance suggest that they could outperform gold in the coming years.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…Gold’s uncertain futureWhile gold may outperform dirt-cheap shares in the short run due to the aforementioned risks to global economic growth, its long-term prospects may be less impressive. Since global GDP growth has always returned to relatively high levels in the past, it seems likely that investor sentiment will strengthen in future. This may mean that demand for defensive assets, such as gold, weakens to some degree in the coming years. The end result may be a poor performance from the precious metal on a relative basis.Furthermore, gold may not offer good value for money at the present time. It has traded higher in 2020, while many high-quality companies continue to offer wide margins of safety. Its current price may fully factor-in threats to the world economy. Therefore, even if there is a period of further uncertainty for investors, the gold price may lack scope to make further gains.Buying dirt-cheap shares for the long runBy contrast, buying dirt-cheap shares today could be a profitable long-term move. The stock market has a long track record of recovering from its various challenges to post new record highs. In doing so, stock valuations have historically reverted to their long-term averages. This means that today’s undervalued stocks could make gains as investors become more upbeat about their operating environments in a growing world economic environment.Investors who have purchased cheap shares in high-quality businesses have generally benefited from market cycles. In other words, buying equities at low prices and holding them for the long run allows an investor to capitalise on the ups and downs of the stock market. Over time, this may mean they can outperform the returns of indices such as the S&P 500 and FTSE 100.Opportunities to buy cheap stocks todayEven though many of 2020’s dirt-cheap shares have enjoyed strong recoveries, a number of companies continue to offer good value for money. Investors are concerned about the prospects for a number of sectors in 2021, including industries such as banking, hospitality and energy. As such, there may be opportunities to buy undervalued stocks in those, and other, sectors at the present time.Over time, a diverse portfolio of such companies can deliver high returns that outperform other assets such as gold. In doing so, they could provide an investor with an improving financial outlook.

I’m looking at these investment themes to build wealth in 2021

first_imgI’m looking at these investment themes to build wealth in 2021 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Recently, I wrote about three big investment themes that I am looking to invest in for 2021. In this article, I’ll talk about another two that I am looking at for the coming year and beyond. Environmental, social, and corporate governance2020 was a big year for the ESG or sustainable investing theme. Huge amounts of money flowed into stocks and funds that scored well across the three central factors for measuring the sustainability and societal impact of investing. The pandemic’s imminent threat seems to have sharpened focus on longer-term issues like climate change. Questions surrounding the fair treatment of workers, both before and after hiring are growing louder.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…There are now requirements for fund managers to disclose how they incorporate ESG factors into their investment decisions. Also, individual companies are starting to report more on how they perform across the environmental, social, and corporate governance axis. ESG investing does appear to be coming of age.One way to play the ESG trend might be to exclude companies that don’t score well. As examples, think of oil & gas companies that are not transitioning to a renewable future, or perhaps fast fashion companies that score poorly for sustainability. Trying to buy companies that do well on ESG measures is the more obvious path. However, defining what falls under the umbrella of ESG and how to score companies is tricky. Instead, I prefer to buy sustainable funds, that have the resources and expertise to develop a robust framework for selecting ethical investments, to play this trend. As examples, Royal London Sustainable leaders and Liontrust Sustainable Future Growth are two funds that have performed strongly over the last 10 years.5G investment themeThe fifth-generation (5G) technology standard for broadband cellular networks means faster mobile (wireless) data speeds and greater capacity. Buying into telecommunications stocks might seem like the natural way to play the 5G investment theme. I am not so sure.The most bandwidth-taxing activities of your average mobile network Internet connection user are streaming music and video. 4G is enough for the average user for now. The average user will likely transition to 5G-capable devices when they need to upgrade their mobile phone, rather than because they want a 5G device. Yet Telecoms companies have, and will continue to bid for 5G bandwidth in auctions. They have to do this to stay with the rest of the pack.But, for some users now and an increasing number in the future, 5G does enable mobile online gaming, connected devices, crystal clear video conferencing from anywhere and augmented reality. I prefer to play the 5G trend by focusing on companies serving customers who want 5G right now.IQE makes compound semiconductor wafers that end up in integrated circuits. It sees market growth opportunities in 5G handset applications and 5G infrastructure. Concurrent Technologies makes embedded computer products for use in many applications. Communications with and between embedded devices is something that 5G is beneficial for. Smart cities and homes, or the Internet of Things will rely on embedded devices and speedy communication between them. Spirent Communications helps businesses develop and test their 5G networks and 5G capable devices, among other things. This is how I would look to play the 5G investment trend: looking for companies that benefit from incremental adoption of 5G technologies.

The prospect of rocketing earnings ahead tempts me into this FTSE share today

first_img Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The release of today’s full-year results report has sent shares in Kenmar Resources (LSE: KMR) higher today.The mining company produces titanium minerals and zircon from its operations in Mozambique. And it supplies customers operating from more than 15 countries. The raw materials end up in finished products such as paints, plastics and ceramic tiles.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…Strong demand and rising pricesManaging director Michael Carvill said demand for the company’s main product, ilmenite, was “strong” in 2020. He explained that ilmenite is undersupplied across the world. And that’s happened because of depleting ore bodies in Africa, mine closures in Australia, and ongoing restrictions in India.One consequence is average prices rose by 9% in 2020. And Carvill said that momentum “accelerated” in the past few months. And it’s a similar story with many commodities. Prices have been shooting higher and mining companies have been making more money. Many mining stocks are a lot higher today than they were at the beginning of 2020.At 403p, Kenmar’s share price has risen by around 70% since the beginning of January last year. However, today’s figures have mostly moved in the ‘wrong’ direction compared to the outcome in 2019. Ilmenite production declined by 15% and total shipments of the finished product fell by 17%. The company said that outcome arose because of poor sea conditions, and works to upgrade transhipment capacity, on top of the lower production volumes.Revenue declined by 10%. Although higher average selling prices partially offset reduced volumes. But cash operating costs shot up by 19% because of those lower production volumes. The effect overall was a massive squeeze on profits after tax, which plummeted by 63%. Nevertheless, the directors pushed up the total shareholder dividend for the year by 22%. Why? Because it’s all about looking ahead.Development projects to boost productionCity analysts expect earnings to rocket more than 400% higher in 2021. The company has been investing in development projects that look set to improve operations ahead. Better production looks like it could combine with higher commodity prices to produce the elevated earnings outcome.Forward-looking valuation measures make the stock look cheap against those earnings projections. The earnings multiple for 2012 is around six and the anticipated dividend yield is close to 3.5%. However, I’m being careful never to forget the inherent cyclicality in the business. Only around four years ago, the company was loss-making. And there’s a long history of volatile earnings.Kenmare and other mining outfits can do all the development projects they like to improve production. But if the prices of the commodities they deal in plunge, the economics of their businesses may fall apart. And that’s why we see such volatile lurches in earnings, dividends and share prices in the mining sector.It’s a big risk for investors. And with Kenmare having made decent profits for a number of years already, I have to wonder how close the business is to its next cyclical plunge. Nevertheless, I’m tempted to jump into a few of the company’s shares now while keeping one hand on the ejector seat handle.

Science Group’s share price hits record highs after trading update

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Science Group’s share price hits record highs after trading update Market appetite for UK shares remains quite sickly, as worries over rising inflation dominate investor thinking. Both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are in the red in Wednesday trading, though not all British stocks are struggling for grip. The Science Group (LSE: SAG) share price, for instance, has soared following the release of fresh financials.Prices of the consultancy group soared to fresh record peaks of 399p per share earlier in mid-week trading. They’ve settled lower but, at 390p, the Science Group share price remains 11% higher from Tuesday’s close.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…Strong trading across Science GroupIn today’s update, Science Group, which describes itself as “an international consulting services group supporting the entire product innovation lifecycle,” said all three of its divisions have enjoyed “a good start to the year.”At its Services businesses, Science Group said its R&D Consultancy division — a unit responsible for around 44% of group revenues — “has seen particularly strong momentum in the Medical sector.” Growth here was strong in 2020, thanks to its participation in the UK government’s ventilator acquisition drive.Elsewhere, Science Group said “the Regulatory & Compliance division has continued the progress demonstrated in 2020.” Finally, it added that its Frontier product division “continues to perform well with material supply constraints likely to be the biggest risk in the current year.”On the back of this strong start, Science Group said it believes adjusted operating profit will grow 30% year-on-year in the first half of 2021. The company described it as “a particularly notable performance,” given the record profits it generated between January and June last year and the significant currency exchange headwinds it faces this time around.Asset sale ruled outScience Group also noted: “While it is still early in the year and the board is closely monitoring the impact of a strengthening sterling currency, this excellent start to 2021 provides a platform for the year as a whole and empowers the group management teams to continue to invest in future growth opportunities with confidence.”Additionally, Science Group said it has decided to retain its Frontier division after floating the idea of a sale earlier in the year. The company said ongoing review of the unit “not only confirmed the strategic position of Frontier but also identified a number of opportunities to further enhance and develop the business which are currently being evaluated.”Gross cash at Science Group stood at £29.5m as of 30 April, the firm said, while net funds clocked in at £13.3m. The company said added: “[Our] strong balance sheet and free cash flow generation enable [us] to continue to evaluate corporate opportunities to increase the scale and/or development of the Group in parallel with the organic investment activities.”City analysts think annual earnings at Science Group will rise 2% in 2021. This leaves the company trading on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 19.7 times. Enter Your Email Address Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

FTSE 100 shares I’d buy for large and growing dividends

FTSE 100 shares I’d buy for large and growing dividends Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… FTSE 100 shares are arguably still undervalued. It’s often argued UK companies remain cheap when compared to other regions of the world. A spate of recent purchases of UK-listed companies gives some credibility to this argument. A combination of value, as well as income from dividends as they recover and grow post pandemic, have brought these two FTSE 100 shares onto my radar.Cheap FTSE 100 minerRio Tinto (LSE: RIO) is one of the world’s leading mining companies. It certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea on ESG grounds, but if I look past that, it’s a FTSE 100 share that strikes me as being good for 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…The dividend payout has been particularly strong in recent years, with consecutive special dividends pushing up the yield. The current dividend yield is 5.2%, far above the average for the FTSE 100. Projections are the dividend could end up being more like 10%. A weaker than expected start to 2021 is a risk I’ll keep an eye on. I think expectations for miners are high as economies reopen following the pandemic. Underperformance will likely hit the share price. Another risk is around the reputational damage caused by blowing up sacred caves in Australia. The incident has had political recriminations and led to executive replacements and a pay revolt from shareholders.Rio Tinto is certainly not a buy and forget share. The mining industry is too cyclical for that. However, for the next few years it could be a sector that produces strong and growing dividends. More evidence of a commodities supercycle, where commodities do well for an extended period of time, might encourage me to buy the shares.Steady, defensive companyThe insurance company Admiral (LSE: ADM) is a more defensive high-yielding FTSE 100 share. In that way, it would potentially complement the more adventurous Rio Tinto in my portfolio.Admiral has a dividend yield of 4%, slightly above the FTSE 100 average, but more importantly than that it raised its dividend by just under 44% between 2019 and 2020. That’s an impressive rate of growth for a FTSE 100-listed company. It is a strong sign of confidence from management.The insurer has a business model that provides it with income no matter what the economic backdrop is. That’s why I believe it will be able to keep paying a large, but also growing, dividend.Since lockdown, it has performed particularly well financially. The share price has also done well over at the same time. In the year to 31 December 2020, pre-tax profit from continuing operations pushed up 20% to £608.2m. The insurer also gained more customers.With earnings per share also growing year-on-year, I’m confident that Admiral is a well run company with a profitable future.Both Rio Tinto and Admiral are FTSE 100 shares that I think could perform well over the coming years. I also happen to think in my portfolio the cyclical miner and the defensive insurer could make a complementary pairing.last_img read more

RBS 6 Nations: Round Four Talking Points

first_img He’s back! Freddie Michalak was dropped to the bench following the Wales defeat but starts against Ireland in DublinBy Alan DymockTHERE IS a lot of love in the air. Not the kind of sickly sweet love, where champagne with strawberries is a must and a handmade card has to be presented on top of the Eiffel or Blackpool Tower while Frankie Goes to Hollywood blares out from a boombox circa ’92. Just lovely love for all things nice.So celebrate all the international days and holidays this weekend by rounding up all of your chums, taking them down the boozer and indulging their love of Six Nations rugby. Here’s a look ahead at round four…Return of the ‘lakNo sooner had everyone gruffly agreed that France were better without Freddie Michalak than Philippe Saint-Andre reinstated the mercurial half-back for the game against Ireland.Inside him there is a steadying force, with Morgan Parra winning his 50th cap while having to hold the France fly-half’s hand. Their task will be to try to work around the Irish playmakers and hope that any trouble that befalls Michalak cannot be punished by a fit-enough Paddy Jackson.The match-up between Michalak and Jackson will be interesting, and while the Irishman certainly seems to have the full support of his team, it only takes one bit of Michalak magic for us all to remember how good a player he can be when he is not dabbing kicks into gleeful defender’s chops.In the perfect world the fancy flyers on either side perform, the packs put in brave displays and Jackson comes of age while Michalak actually pulls off something he has been trying since the opening whistle of the championship.In the real world, though, it will be the team that is less wasteful that will renege on their recent form. Italy need to play a tad more negatively than they have in previous rounds. Their offloading has been superb, but they need to box-kick and pick-and-go to sap the English before looking to play with Jacques Brunel’s style. It may even help playing negatively at the start before picking up the pace on either side of half-time and then becoming negative again. If it is non-stop action and offloads for 80 minutes they will burn out against an England side conditioned to last.For the hosts, they will be convinced that if they can keep swinging low, but at greater pace, they are assured of a victory. NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Marksman: Wales’ Leigh HalfpennyContenders’ contestAt Murrayfield there is a meeting of two teams still in the hunt for a title. Whether or not Scotland are likely to claim their first ever Six Nations title or Wales retain the trophy is irrelevant. This is a spectacle for spectacle’s sake. Both teams are on a high and both want to ruck it out.The back threes on either side of the ball are exciting and this game represents a chance for the tournament to flourish once again, with tries and turnovers, runs and rearguard action capturing the imagination.If both throw the kitchen sink and the toilet, too, this has the potential to be the game of the tournament (unless Wales win. Then, of course, Wales versus England at the Millennium Stadium will undoubtedly be the game of the tournament…).Captain marvel: Sergio ParisseSlam-pedeThe Italians will be hoping that the reinstatement of Sergio Parisse can help them bounce back. However, England are on an upwards curve and by swapping in dynamic ball-carriers in Mako Vunipola, James Haskell and Danny Care, they are clearly planning an unrelenting punch to the guts of Italy.Italy may not double over, but England are marching towards a Grand Slam and they are trying to pick up the pace.last_img read more

They create a dynamic platform for youngsters, as well as attracting new players and showing parents a strong and positive image of the sport.After an intense competition, the teams left Portugal with the desire to return next year for the tenth edition of the Rugby Youth Festival.center_img Myerscough College and home side CDUL produced a perfect finale to another successful event in Lisbon. Reporter Francisco Isaac was among the spectators Two thousand players dazzled on the eight fields of the Estádio Universitário de Lisboa, one of the many ‘homes’ for Portuguese rugby, in a special weekend for the sport in Portugal – the Rugby Youth Festival.The festival, promoted by Move Sports, once again delivered two days of exciting rugby competition encompassing 300 games for players aged 12 to 19.A record 800 foreign players were also involved in this ninth edition of the Rugby Youth Festival, evidence of the event’s growing reputation outside Portugal. The competition was divided into U13, U15, U17 and U19 categories.It was a special tournament not only because of the participation of UK teams, such as Myerscough, Bristol Rugby, Bromsgrove and Henley, but also the presence of an Australian team, the Melbourne Kangaroos, and the Spanish outfit VRAC.In the U13 section, Colston’s School demonstrated remarkable skills for players of such youth, playing a quick and attractive game to defeat AIS Agronomia 40-5.Slick operators: Colston’s (orange) gave a sparkling exhibition in the U13 final (SUM Photography)In the U15s, Ivybridge Community College combined rigorous defence with three tries against former champions Bristol to deservedly take the title 17-0.Before the grand finale, there was the U17 final between Old Crescent RFC from Limerick and CF Os Belenenses. It proved one of the best games of the weekend, with the Irish side winning in overtime with a penalty kick to emerge 13-10 victors.last_img read more

Uncertainty over 2021 Women’s Six Nations

first_img Defending champs: England sealed back-to-back Grand Slams by beating Italy last year (Getty Images) Growing concerns over the championship with fixtures yet to be announced If those restrictions remain for the Women’s Six Nations, Ireland would need to play all their matches at home.It is also not clear if the Women’s Six Nations would fall under ‘elite sport’ in France and Italy, meaning those national teams would be exempt from certain travel restrictions. The women’s domestic leagues in France have been suspended since November.The Six Nations could be moved to a later window, perhaps April-May when the hope is that restrictions will have been eased, or maybe there will be limited fixtures with, say, England, Scotland and Wales playing matches with no air travel required.There are knock-on effects to any alternative plans, particularly in a World Cup year. A delay to the Six Nations would likely also delay the European RWC 2021 qualifiers, which involve Ireland, Italy, Scotland and the European Rugby Championship winner (still to be decided as that tournament has also been postponed). That in turn would delay the final qualifying tournament.World Rugby could decide that the Six Nations fixtures involving Ireland, Italy and Scotland should double up as RWC 2021 qualifiers. That was already due to be the case with the Italy v Scotland match scheduled for December until that, too, was cancelled and would reduce the amount of fixtures to fit in as the timeframe between now and the World Cup in New Zealand shortens.There is no easy fix given the ever-changing situation regarding the pandemic, but it’s important teams can adequately prepare for the World Cup or the integrity of that tournament will be called into question. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Uncertainty over 2021 Women’s Six NationsThere are growing concerns over when, or even if, this year’s Women’s Six Nations will take place.The women’s championship, which generally mirrors the men’s, is due to kick off in less than a month but the fixtures have not yet been confirmed.While the dates for this year’s men’s championship were announced back in 2019, the women’s fixtures are often announced much later, although they would usually be known by now.The continually changing picture regarding Covid-19 restrictions in the countries involved complicates matters, as we saw last year. Grand Slam winners England were the only team to play all five of their 2020 championship games as three fixtures were cancelled last autumn due to the coronavirus.Six Nations organisers are having ongoing discussions in order to stage the championship and are expected to make an announcement next week, but there is a lot of uncertainty.As the RFU head of women’s performance Nicky Ponsford told BBC Sport: “I do have concerns about how well we’re going to be able to get through this period.”Curtailed: Scotland drew 13-13 with France last autumn but their final two games were cancelled (Getty Images)While England’s players are professional and would be able to operate in a ‘bubble’ for the Six Nations, the same is not true of the other countries. France are semi-pro so may be able to commit to a similar training environment, but most Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales players are amateur, balancing rugby alongside jobs.On top of that are the travel restrictions in different countries. In the autumn, France agreed to play their fixture against Ireland in Dublin rather than Lille (before it was cancelled due to positive Covid cases) because the Irish players would have had to isolate for 14 days on their return had the match been played in France. That obviously presented problems given their work and family commitments, particularly as many players work in teaching and medicine. Can’t get to the shops?

Executive Council discusses process used to fund churchwide mission

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Rector Knoxville, TN Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Washington, DC This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 June 11, 2014 at 7:37 am In my diocese, if a congregation doesn’t pay its fair share (roughly 11%) of the diocesan operating budget, the congregation loses its votes at diocesan convention. Eventually, a parish that doesn’t pay is reduced to mission status — although we’ve never had to go that far. This system works well. Previously, we had a mostly-voluntary system with no teeth that resulted in many inequities. This is how it should be at the national level. No pay, you can still play, but not to the same extent as those who do pay. Rector Tampa, FL June 12, 2014 at 9:41 am After over a century of separate budgets – one for mission and one for administration – the Diocese of Texas has adopted a unitary budget. All congregations MUST pay their assessment, which includes a percentage (around 10% I think) for mission. If they don’t pay, they don’t vote at Diocesan Council. Completeliy agree with the comments about transparency and accountability made above. As long as the national church engages in partisan political activity through the DC office, there will be justifiable resistance from those who do not believe that activity is a good use of our funds. It’s like labor unions using dues for partisan activity that members oppose. The Supreme Court has freed members from being taxes for such things. I’m all for a unitary budget with a lower but mandatory mission assignment PROVIDED we carefully review what we’re spending the money for. The foot dragging about leaving 815 doesn’t inspire confidence in the pews, and the fact that the discussions at EC now are being done in secret is also disheartening. The current system isn’t working well, and so many view the 19% as a punitive tax. TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Hopkinsville, KY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS June 10, 2014 at 5:49 pm If dioceses expect their parishes to pay up, then they should pay up to the national church as well. Think of it as a franchise tax or a tithe, whatever. Comments are closed. June 13, 2014 at 1:04 pm In 1985 we made a commitment to 50/50 giving, by which we meant that if the church exists for others, and not just itself, then at least half it’s resources should be spent outside itself. Of the 50% given away, 25% was to go to the wider church. 25% was goal to which parishes were to be working and the goal for the giving of each diocese to the wider church. Some have actually accomplished that in times past. That resolution along with our commitment to the tithe for individuals, and 1% for the support of seminaries! have been affirmed any number of times over the decades.How sad that we have abandoned our stewardship theology. June 10, 2014 at 7:59 pm TEC should reduce the number of dioceses within the 48 CONUS states by half. A good yardstick would be that if a diocese cannot maintain an average income of $1.5M per annum, it should be consolidated. TEC cannot afford this top-heavy structure that made sense when trains were still the way that bishops made episcopal visitations and when communications between diocese and parish were by U.S. Mail. June 10, 2014 at 5:45 pm With untold millions spent on litigation against thousands who have separated from us, and with the elimination of the Evangelism Department (among others), and the ignored General Convention mandate to transition away from 815 Second Avenue one wonders exactly what can justify the 19%. Likewise, we may have needed General Convention every 3 years in a time of limited interaction, travel, and communication, but why such an expense now? Local churches have to justify budgets and priorities, and it is increasingly the same for those who have stewardship for the General Church. Any talk of isolating or guilting dioceses who object to the current 19% asking is hardly productive and will likely be met with wider resentment and action. Considering that only about 600,000 attend TEC services on any given Sunday, we have just got to stop irritating the pews with heavy-handed ideas that seem good in a committee.

It’s not simply a matter of need or mission.This is the way it really works. We figure up what we want to do. Then we figure what percent of all the diocesan budgets it will take. Then we increase that percent by whatever the budgeters guess it will take to cover what they guess the short fall will be. That way those who will pay whatever is asked cover for those who won’t pay what is asked. I would consider it a matter of the the strong carrying the weaker brother’s burdens, an act of sacrificial generosity, were it not for the fact that for the last 40 years we’ve been asked to shoulder the burden for dioceses who could carry their own load but simply refused to do so. It was the Prayer Book, then ordained women, now LBGTQ… and always complaints about the Church being too political. After years of paying whatever was asked, I voted to drop our pledge to 10%… just because I was tired of being taken advantage of. We’ve pledged 10% for several years now. We actually give more, of course, we love our Church; this year our gift will probably match the asking.The same problem is seen in dioceses with apportionment systems. Shaming, loss of suffrage, or mission status don’t change hearts or promote generosity. It hasn’t worked in the dioceses I’ve known and I think there is even less chance any of these will work on the diocesan level.I’m afraid we’re stuck with this stupid system until all the dioceses decide they love The Episcopal Church, too.

And with those who say that most of us in the pews don’t really know what program–or mission–we’re paying for on the national and diocesan levels. Communication between the national church, the dioceses, and the parishes is very poor; and here, I do not just mean that the “higher ups” in the system don’t explain their programs well, but also, there is not a great deal of interest (that I can discern) in the higher-ups finding out about what’s happening in the parishes. We are, in consequence, more a congregational church than one whose hierarchy unites us. We have so many means of communication now, but it doesn’t seem to be helping us know and understand each other better!

Chilton says: Submit a Job Listing Tags Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Featured Jobs & Calls Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Episcopal News Service – Phoenix, Arizona] The liveliest discussion during the opening session of the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council June 10-12 meeting here surrounded how much money the General Convention ought to ask dioceses to contribute to the church-wide budget – and what should be done about dioceses that do not pay the full amount.The discussion took the form of an informal poll of council members by Diocese of Ohio Bishop Mark Hollingsworth, chair of council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission. FFM, as the committee is known, is in the process of helping to shape the draft 2016-2019 budget that council must construct by February 2015. Hollingsworth gave each council member 30 seconds to share what they are hearing around the church about the budget-funding process, and what they think ought to be done.In the 2013-2015 triennium, dioceses are asked to contribute 19 percent of their annual income to help fund the church-wide budget. Each year’s annual giving in the three-year budget is based on a diocese’s income two years earlier, minus $120,000. The list of 2012 and 2013 diocesan commitments is here.The Episcopal Church’s three-year budget is funded primarily by pledges from the church’s dioceses and regional mission areas. While the budget asks for 19 percent from the dioceses each year, not all dioceses give the full amount and thus the 2013-2015 projected diocesan income was forecast, in part, on giving trends. For instance, during the 2012 meeting of General Convention when its Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) was formulating the budget to present to convention, Episcopal Church Treasurer Kurt Barnes told the committee that the average rate of giving in 2012 had been 15 percent, even though the asking was 19 percent.Most council members said during the polling here that they were hearing sentiment for a lower asking percentage, some sort of a progressive system with varying asking percentages based on dioceses’ varying financial resources, and accountability for dioceses that are financially able to pay the full percentage but choose not to, and for those for those dioceses that want to move towards paying the full ask.When council members in their comments cited a number for a reduced ask, most named 15 percent. The Rev. Jim Simons from the Diocese of Pittsburgh, said he had been hearing calls for a reduction in the ask “even as low as 10 percent.”He added that he thought “we have not done a particularly good job explaining what the funds are used for.”Katie Sherrod, from the Diocese of Fort Worth, said Episcopalians in that diocese have seen what happens when diocesan leaders choose to separate themselves from the rest of the church. “I think the asking is a very tangible symbol of us as a body in this world,” she said, adding that the reconstituted Fort Worth diocese is paying the full ask “for the first time in a very long time.”“We will continue to do so at whatever level this church decides but we would be concerned if it went too low because we value those church-wide programs,” Sherrod said.Deborah Stokes of the Diocese of Southern Ohio suggested “the chief concern is about accountability — those who are not paying [the full ask] and still getting the benefits of the church.”Marion Luckey said that although she generally hears calls for a lower asking, her Diocese of Northern Michigan pays the full 19 percent asking even though “it does use money that could be used in other areas but we feel that that’s our commitment to the church.”Bryan Krislock, Diocese of Olympia, said a lower ask ought to be coupled with a progressive system that takes into account the high fixed costs that all diocese have, and acknowledges that some dioceses have more financial resources than others.Bishop Stacy Sauls, the church center’s chief operating officer, voiced no opinion on the amount of the asking but said the “order of the questions” is wrong. Rather than ask what the level of the asking should be, the question “ought to be what do we want to do, how much does it cost and then how do we fairly allocate the cost of that?”The Rev. Gay Jennings, House of Deputies president, said she agreed with the need for accountability and noted that council talked about that issue two triennia ago “and did not make much progress.” A diocese that does not pay the full asking faces no sanctions such as what happens to parishes that do not pay the full amount asked by their dioceses, for example a loss of voting rights at diocesan convention or ineligibility for diocesan grants.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who was the bishop of Nevada when she was elected presiding bishop, said Nevada has historically paid the full asking “often at great sacrifice.”“The reality is that poorer diocese generally benefit from the church-wide programs and cannot fund those on their own,” she said. “I believe we need a missional conversation about … what can only be funded at the church-wide level and then figure out how to pay for it. I applaud the ideas of progressivity and accountability.”Earlier during her opening remarks Jefferts Schori had said that she “still hopes that the Task Force of Reimagining the Episcopal Church will consider how, as a whole church, we can best support the local work of dioceses – and sharing resources is an essential part of that. But we need to think beyond the percentage asking from each diocese. Do current geographic boundaries make the most sense for a sustainable future for each mission unit – otherwise called diocese? Dioceses have always had these conversations about local parishes and congregations, and they make considered decisions about how to allocate personnel, financial, administrative, and building resources for the good of the whole. As a whole church, we’re being called into similarly strategic perspectives and decision-making.”Hollingsworth concluded the discussion with a promise of more conversation to come. Having served two terms on PB&F and now chairing FFM, he said he knows that the church “cannot do the things that we aspire to do” with the revenue that is being paid in by dioceses.He said his “greatest concern” is that the entire funding process “is not good for our soul, it is divisive.”Opening remarksJefferts Schori told the council during her opening remarks that she wanted “to point to the fact that as a Church, we are making progress toward a far more interconnected and networked structure.”“We are focusing strategically on those areas where only the church-wide structure is able to support particular local mission efforts. Support for Navajoland and the renewing dioceses are examples, so is the sustainability work in Province IX. I believe and expect those efforts toward sustainability will increase in the future. We are bound to one another, and the health and growth of each part of the body of Christ is the concern of the whole.”Jennings told the council during her opening remarks she had been thinking about “our discourse—our habitual way of speaking about the structure of the church” and how it might color “our discussions and decisions in ways we don’t intend.”“What well-worn patterns of discourse are shaping our thinking in well-worn ways that no longer serve us well?” she asked. “Where can we admit new meanings, healthy tension, and opportunities to promote resilience? How can we work together to expand our discourses about the church to include more people, more contexts, more perspectives and more followers of Jesus?”Also during the opening plenaryCouncil welcomed the Rev. Brandon Mauia, a deacon from North Dakota, who is succeeding the Rev. Terry Star. Star died of a heart attack March 4 in his lodgings at Nashotah House Theological Seminary.The rest of the council’s agenda“We’ve got a number of significant issues at this meeting, all of which are related to how best to use the gifts we have as resources for church-wide mission,” said Jefferts Schori in her opening remarks.Among those issues is the ongoing discussion about the use of the Church Center in New York. There are two executive sessions on the council’s agenda for members to discuss a new report from its Subcommittee on the Location of the Episcopal Church Center. One session was held at the end of the opening plenary June 10 and the other is scheduled as the first item on the plenary agenda for June 12. Prior to the meeting council members had to sign in to receive sealed printed materials related to the discussion; they will have to turn those materials after the meeting.Council members will also discuss mission and budgetary issues in the Navajoland Area Mission; responses to justice issues such as human trafficking, Middle East peace, and environmental and climate concerns; hear about the church’s communion-wide covenant relationships; and will review policy in several areas.The meeting is taking place at the Embassy Suites Phoenix Scottsdale. Council will travel to the Episcopal Church of the Nativity late in the afternoon of June 10 for Eucharist and a reception. The Rev. Susan Snook, Nativity’s rector, is a member of council. During the reception members will get a preview of Episcopal Relief & Development’s 75th Anniversary Photo Exhibition.The council will meet in committee all day June 11. On June 12, the council meets in plenary session all day to hear committee reports and to consider resolutions.The next day, a number of council members and staff will travel to Fort Defiance in northern Arizona to attend the annual convocation of the Navajoland Area Mission.Some council members are tweeting from the meeting using #ExCoun062014.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.Editors’ note: This story was updated June 11, 2014, to clarify the terms “progressive system” and “accountability”.

The counter is that small dioceses should consider merging with other dioceses; a progressive system undercuts the incentive to merge.Are dioceses like Nevada poor because they are thinly populated? The question I would ask is why do we have to have franchises in every corner of the country? Why not allow voids where the Episcopal Church simply does not have a presence? That’s what larger dioceses with more concentrated Episcopal populations are implying when they don’t pay the full ask: why does the national church have to provide resources for such thinly populated dioceses? It’s like bringing water to the desert, or electricity to remote areas. The value is not justified by the cost.

Photo: Chuck Robertson[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry traveled this month to Zimbabwe to attend an annual festival for the martyred 19th century missionary Bernard Mizeki and delivered a sermon there to more than 15,000 pilgrims from across Central and Southern Africa.Curry was invited to the festival by Bishop William Jay Lambert of the Episcopal Diocese of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, who first attended in 2015. Lambert called Curry’s June 17 sermon “the best sermon he’s ever given.”“I had hoped that that crowd would fire him up and he in turn would fire them up, and that’s what happened,” Lambert told the Episcopal News Service by phone.Curry spoke of the Jesus Movement, one of his recurring themes as presiding bishop, and he emphasized Matthew’s account of the Great Commission, saying “go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.” The repetition of that passage in Curry’s sermon eventually prompted to the crowd to respond by chanting “Go!” over and over.“The energy was palpable, and the depth of feeling profound,” said the Rev. Chuck Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church. Robertson was part of the American delegation that traveled to Zimbabwe for the Mizeki festival.Mizeki was born in Mozambique in the mid-1800s. As an adult working in South Africa, he became a Christian in 1886 and helped translate Anglican sacred texts into African languages. Then from 1891 until his death in 1896, he served in what is now Zimbabwe as a missionary who converted many of the Mashona to Christianity.Although Mizeki became well-versed in the local language and was sensitive to the Mashona’s spiritual traditions, his missionary work angered some African nationalists who saw such work as an extension of European colonial influence. He was speared to death outside his hut on June 18, 1896. Those on their way to help him reported seeing a great light and hearing the sound of wings. When they arrived, Mizeki’s body was gone.“I have been reading and telling the story of Bernard Mizeki for years, at midweek Eucharist, both as a parish priest and a bishop,” Curry said in a emailed statement. “He is one of the holy people we remember in Lesser Feasts and Fasts and then Holy Women Holy Men. So I often told her read his story. But until I went to Zimbabwe for the Bernard Mizekei commemoration I didn’t realize how profoundly the sacrifice of his life gave birth to the church in a new way.”A crowd of about 15,000 attended the outdoor worship service June 17 at the Bernard Mizeki festival in Zimbabwe. Photo Sharon JonesThe annual festival in Mizeki’s memory regularly draws 20,000 or more pilgrims, and it is held not far from where he was killed 121 years ago.Lambert learned of the festival through Eau Claire’s companion diocese relationship with the Anglican Diocese of Harare, Zimbabwe. He journeyed to Harare for the festival for the first time in 2015, shortly before Curry was elected presiding bishop at the General Convention meeting that year in Salt Lake City.“I knew right then and there I’d like to have him in Zimbabwe to preach at the Mizeki festival,” Lambert told ENS.He posed the idea to Curry, who added it to his calendar for 2017.The service itself was celebrated on a grand scale, lasting more than two hours. All 15,000 worshipers were able to receive the Eucharist through stations set up all around the field where the service was held, with Harare Bishop Chad Nicholas Gandiya presiding.“Somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 Anglicans gathered for a three-day series of services, preaching, teaching, singing, dancing,” Curry said this week. “It was a three-day Anglican revival. And it bore witness to the truth that the blood of the martyrs is indeed the seed of the church.”Lambert described the crowd’s response to Curry’s sermon as “one of the most passionate things I’ve ever witnessed.”Afterward, Curry joined a group of church leaders who planted trees nearby. Robertson said this was part of Gandiya’s initiative aimed at reversing the tide of deforestation in the region.“The presiding bishop and those of us who accompanied him gave thanks for the opportunity to witness and participate in an occasion that truly was a foretaste of the great heavenly celebration to come,” Robertson said.It was an honor, Lambert said, to have Curry join the American delegation on the trip this year.“Not only was I proud of the presiding bishop,” Lambert said. “It made me proud that he represented the Episcopal Church, and also that he represented our country.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Cape Town Archbishop welcomes easing of restrictions on sexual violence…

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA Tags Rector Smithfield, NC [Anglican Communion News Service] The archbishop of Cape Town has welcomed a decision by South Africa’s Constitutional Court which will make it easier for victims of sexual violence to seek justice. A statute of limitation in South Africa prevented prosecutions for sexual offences other than rape, if the alleged offence occurred more than 20 years earlier. The Constitutional Court struck down that law, saying it was inconsistent with the country’s constitution.Read the entire article here.

As of this writing, eight people are known dead and others injured.The newscasts, sickeningly, are referring again and again to this horror as a “tragedy.” It is no such thing. A tragedy is inevitable. This was not. It was murder, murder of a particularly vile and poisonous kind. Human beings have moral agency. Someone chose to hate, and chose to kill. And now we are faced with a choice as well— to do nothing, or to reject this hatred in the strongest possible words and actions, and to refute in every way, in every forum, the philosophical foundations of anti-Semitism wherever they have gained a foothold in our churches and our society.We are waiting upon the leadership of the Jewish community of Pittsburgh as they consider an appropriate common response in which we also may join to express our grief and support. In the meantime, I ask all the congregations of this diocese to keep the people of Tree of Life, and their leadership, in our prayers, mentioning them particularly, during the prayers of the people in tomorrow’s liturgies, and including a time of silence in commemoration of their dead under the biddings for the departed.This terror is added to the great heap of such crimes we have witnessed in the past. Yet our hope is not dimmed, and our obligation is clear: “Behold, I set before you this day, life and death, blessing and curse: therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) May we especially who bear the name of Christ be fierce in our love and unwavering in our courage, as we mourn with those who mourn, and work with others to lay the foundations for blessing, life and peace for all people.Faithfully your bishop,The Right Reverend) Dorsey W.

The unprecedented two day retreat was organized in an effort to support the country’s fragile peace deal. The political leaders present at the retreat included South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir Mayardit and opposition leader Vice President Riek Machar. The two are expected to form a national unity government under a fragile peace deal designed to end six years of civil war in the world’s newest country.Pope Francis shocked the church and political leaders present at the retreat in the Domus Sanctae Marthae, the official Vatican guest house which is also home to Pope Francis, when he broke off from his prepared remarks to make a personal plea to Sudan’s political leaders.Read the entire article here.

Gregory Lisby. Photo: Diocese of Western MassachusettsThe Rev. Gregory Lisby had been suspended last year from his position as rector of All Saints Church in Worcester, Massachusetts, “for an inappropriate relationship with an adult that did not involve sexual contact,” the Rt. Rev. Douglas Fisher wrote in a letter to the diocese, adding that that disciplinary process did not yield any indication that Lisby was a danger to children. At the time of the Sept. 11 raid, Lisby had just begun teaching kindergarten in a public school in Holyoke. He had worked in other teaching positions in the area since his suspension, MassLive reported. He had previously served at Christ Church in Ridgewood, New Jersey, from 2010 to 2015, the Rt. Rev. Carlye Hughes, bishop of Newark, wrote in a letter to her diocese. He served at two churches in the Diocese of Rhode Island from 2005 to 2010, the Providence Journal reported.Lisby’s husband, the Rev. Timothy Burger, is the rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Worcester, and they have been living in that church’s rectory with their two daughters, Fisher wrote in his letter. Court records say that a tip from Microsoft led FBI agents to that address, and that the investigation found nearly 200 images and videos of child pornography in a Microsoft account associated with Lisby, MassLive reported. At 2:30 a.m. after the raid, Lisby emailed a brief resignation letter to the principal of the elementary school he worked at, saying, “Last night, I was accused of an awful crime that could put our Holyoke children in harm’s way.” He was arrested later that day.If convicted, Lisby could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. A judge determined Lisby is a flight risk and a danger to the public, so he is being held in federal custody until his next court date, scheduled for Sept. 23.Fisher wrote in his letter that he is placing Lisby “under a pastoral directive that forbids contact with any Episcopal church” and has begun a Title IV investigation.“I have no reason to believe that children in our diocese have been victimized in this situation,” Fisher wrote. “Yet, I know that children whose images appear in pornography are heinously abused and violated by the adults who produce and consume it. This reality breaks my heart. Please join me in praying first for the children who are victims of child pornographers and for an end to the horrific abuse perpetrated by this industry.”Hughes wrote in her letter to the Diocese of Newark that “at this time, there is no indication of this behavior during the Rev. Lisby’s tenure in this diocese. Still, we will monitor this investigation carefully and are ready to launch a diocesan investigation if deemed necessary.”Both bishops encouraged anyone with information or concerns about the situation to contact their diocesan offices. According to the Providence Journal, the rectors of the two Rhode Island churches Lisby served at have also written to their congregations, inviting anyone with concerns to reach out to them.According to a 2015 Diocese of Western Massachusetts newsletter, Lisby holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in clinical social work and a Master of Divinity degree from The General Theological Seminary. He was pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree in preaching from Sewanee: The University of the South.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Findings released in Parkview at Wekiva water testing

From the City of Apopka Public Information OfficeThe Florida Department of Health (DOH) has determined that water and soil in Apopka’s Parkview at Wekiva subdivision do not violate federal and state allowable contaminant levels and that no health risk was identified.Soil and water testing was conducted in the neighborhood in December as a result of concerns raised by residents. The Department of Health stated that test results did not indicate any health risk and showed levels below the cleanup target levels for soil and the maximum contaminant levels for water. DOH will remain available to the community as it addresses any remaining concerns associated with this issue. Testing was conducted as part of a “PACE-EH” investigation. PACE-EH is an acronym for “Protocol for Assessing Community Excellence in Environmental Health.”“This is good news for Parkview residents who can now have a higher level of comfort regarding their drinking water,” said Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer. “We are confident that the testing was thorough and conclusive.”Water samples were specifically tested for coliform, nitrite, nitrate, and lead. The results show that the water does not contain any of the tested contaminants above the Maximum Contaminant Level for drinking water as established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.Three water samples were taken in the neighborhood on December 7, 2017, and were analyzed at Orange County Utilities’ Central Laboratory. The samples were taken from inside each residence as well as from the water meter in the front yard of each residence. Additionally, soil samples also were taken at each location from the first four inches of soils in each front yard as close to the water meter as possible.An analysis of the soil samples was completed by Flowers Lab to review the amount of metal contaminants in the soils. The results showed that four of the metals tested (arsenic, cadmium, selenium, and silver) had levels that were undetectable by their search parameters. The other four metals, (mercury, barium, chromium, and lead) had very small trace amounts of each present in the samples. A comparison of the analyzed levels to the Target Clean-up Levels established for residential area per the Florida Administrative Code Chapter 62-777 showed that the test results are significantly lower than the established values.

What veterans’ poems can teach us about healing on Memorial Day

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here TAGSMemorial Daytheconversation.com Previous articleOver 62,000 Pounds of Raw Beef Recalled amid E.coli worriesNext articleThe forgotten history of Memorial Day Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By James Dubinsky, Associate Professor of English, Virginia Tech and first published on theconversation.Memorial Day, a national holiday to honor the 1.17 million men and women who have died to create and maintain the freedoms outlined in our Constitution, is not the only Memorial Day.The holiday emerged from the Civil War as a celebration almost exclusively for veterans of the Union Army to remember those who had died. Veterans and their families from Confederate states held their own celebrations. Thus, it remains fraught with conflict and ambiguity.In 2017, seven states – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia – chose to also celebrate some form of Confederate Memorial Day. It’s usually celebrated on April 26 – the day associated with the surrender of General Joe Johnston, nine days after General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox at the end of the Civil War.How can we overcome these deep divides?Having served 28 years in the U.S. Army and as a teacher and researcher who studies the roles veterans and their family play in society, I believe poems written by veterans that focus on honoring those who have died may give us a clue.Bridging divisionsThe tension between North and South remains. We see it not only on days dedicated to remembrance. It surfaces daily as communities such as New Orleans wrestle with whether or not to keep memorial statues honoring Confederate leaders like Robert E. Lee.Seaman Daniel Odoi of the Navy Operational Support Center of New York City presents the American flag on Memorial Day 2013. AP Photo/John MinchilloOne poet who does not ignore these divides is Yusef Komunyakaa, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970 and earned a Bronze Star. He is now a professor at New York University.In “Facing It,” a poem about visiting the Vietnam War Memorial, Komunyakaa, an African-American, confronts the wall and issues linked to war and race. He writes:“My black face fades / hiding inside the black granite.”But he is also a veteran honoring those who died; he is balancing the pain of loss with the guilt of not being a name on the wall:“I go down the 58,022 names, / half-expecting to find / my own in letters like smoke. / I touch the name Andrew Johnson; / I see the booby trap’s white flash.”The poem ends with two powerful images that offer a glimmer of hope:“A white vet’s image floats / closer to me, then his pale eyes / look through mine. I’m a window. / He’s lost his right arm / inside the stone. In the black mirror / a woman’s trying to erase names: / No, she’s brushing a boy’s hair.”The image of the speaker becoming a “window” addresses how two vets, one white and one black, bridge the racial divide and become linked through shared acts of sacrifice and remembrance. Yet even with such a positive affirming metaphor, the speaker’s mind and heart are not fully at ease.The next image creates dissonance and worry: Will the names be erased? The concluding line relieves that worry – the names are not being erased. More importantly, the final image of a simple act of caring calls to mind the sacrifices made to protect women and children by those whose names are on the wall. As a result, their image in the stone becomes a living memorial.Memory and reflectionWe can also learn from Brock Jones, an Army veteran who served three tours of duty in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He named his award-winning book “Cenotaph,” the name for a tomb to honor those whose graves lie elsewhere. By using the name of a monument for those not present, a monument with historical ties to ancient Greece and Egypt as well as our own culture, Brock highlights how honoring the dead goes beyond culture and country.Jones’ poems do not focus outward toward social strife, but inward. They address language’s inability to capture or express loss linked to memories of war. They also point to how those remaining alive, particularly those who have not served, might come to understand the depth of the sacrifice expressed by memorials and, by extension, Memorial Day.In “Arkansas,” a poem that takes place at the Arkansas pillar, one of 56 pillars at the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., the speaker remembers a journey with his grandfather:“Dead eight years ago this summer / to the Atlantic pavilion engraved / with foreign names he never forgot. / Bastogne. / Yeah, we was there. / St. Marie Eglise. / We was near there.”The poem ends with the grandfather described as “a hunched figure, in front of ARKANSAS. Still, in front of ARKANSAS.” The grandfather is burdened by memories he carries, memories that render him “still” (motionless), memories that will remain with him “still.”“Memorial from a Park Bench” offers a broader perspective, one that any visitor sitting on a bench in front of a memorial might experience. For the visitor, the memorial becomes “an opened book,” a place where “A word loses its ability to conjure/trapped inside a black mirror.”The words are “names,” which “could be lines / of poems or a grocery list. / They could be just lines.” But they are not “just lines.”At poem’s end, when all is contemplated, “Here are names and black stone / and your only reflection.”Jones shifts the emotional and intellectual burden from the person on the bench to the poem’s readers, and thus to broader society. These words cannot be just lines or lists; they become, by being memorialized in a black stone, a “mirror,” the reader’s and thus society’s “reflection.” All on the bench are implicated; the names died for us, and, as a result, are us.Memorial Day and mindfulnessMemorial Day may have “official” roots honoring Union dead, but veteran poets of recent wars serving the United States have found ways to honor all those who have died in battle.Our country may be divided, but by taking a moment to pause and reflect on names etched on monument walls or gravestones, everyone on benches may see their own reflections, and in so doing further the task President Abraham Lincoln outlined in his 1865 Second Inaugural Address “to bind up the nation’s wounds…to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”By being mindful, we might understand what Robert Dana, a WWII vet wrote in “At the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.”: that “These lives once theirs / are now ours.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

Classic Clip – Referee trips over player

In this Super 12 match from a few seasons ago we saw Kiwi ref Scott Young go for a tumble.

Seremaia Bai’s dangerous tackle on Aled Brew earns him yellow

first_imgTuesday Nov 23, 2010 Seremaia Bai’s dangerous tackle on Aled Brew earns him yellow The Wales and Fiji game on Friday wasn’t too spectacular as for whatever reason, both sides failed to hit their straps. In an uneventful game, one of the moments that stood out was this tackle that resulted in a yellow card for Seremaia Bai. Bai, so often an integral part of the Fiji setup, was sent from the pitch for ten minutes after what was ruled as a spear, or dangerous , tackle. He certainly lifted Brew’s legs past the horizontal and by recent rulings that alone is enough to show a player yellow, and in some cases can even result in suspension, as we saw a few months back in the Tri Nations. If we look at it a little closer though, was this not a case of a great hit being over policed because of a technicality? By all means it looked like what we’ve all come to know as a good, solid, dump tackle. If a player’s legs happen to go up in the air at the last moment but he still lands in the same position he would have if they hadn’t, should the tackler be penalised for that? A lot of it is about momentum and balance. If anything, Bai seemed to land more awkwardly. It certainly wasn’t a lift, twist, and drive like we’ve seen rightly penalised in recent years. Bai actually went on to kick the all important penalty for the draw later in the game, so it was quite an interesting night for him. Technically this decision was correct and spear tackles should definitely be stamped out of the game, but do you agree that perhaps officials are told to judge on the position of the legs rather than the tackle for what it is? All opinions are welcome as I’m sure we all see it differently.

Springboks ease to win over Argentina to claim Third place in Rugby World Cup 2015

first_imgFriday Oct 30, 2015 Springboks ease to win over Argentina to claim Third place in Rugby World Cup 2015 Bryan Habana was unable to beat the world record for most tries ever in Rugby World Cup history, that he holds with Jonah Lomu, but played a part in South Africa’s 24-13 victory over Argentina at the Olympic Stadium on Friday night. The Springboks scored two tries and led by twenty points for most of the match, but errors and stop-start play in the second half made for difficult viewing. Despite both sides playing an open game early on, second half substitutions and stoppages killed the flow of the contest.Argentina picked up a consolation try on full time, but it was too little too late and South Africa, who started the tournament terribly, at least finished with a win.It’s the second time that South Africa have come third in the Rugby World Cup, something they did in 1999 too, when they beat New Zealand four years after first lifting the trophy. Argentina’s best ever result was in 2007, when they beat hosts France to come third.A number of stars were playing their final games for their countries, namely Victor Matfield, Juan Martin Fernadez Lobbe, and Schalk Burger.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup , Springboks Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Fans give tributes to ‘one of the best ever’, under appreciated Heinrich Brüssow

first_imgWednesday Oct 23, 2019 Fans give tributes to ‘one of the best ever’, under appreciated Heinrich Brüssow After Northampton Saints flanker Heinrich Brüssow announced his retirement, fans have looked back on a career that could have been so much more.ADVERTISEMENTThe loose forward only managed 21 appearances for the Saints since joining in January 2018 as a result of injuries, and that has been the ultimate cause of his retirement at the age of 33.It has been ten years since the diminutive flanker caught the rugby world’s attention with his performance against the British and Irish Lions for the Free State Cheetahs. Such was his display, that he was called up to the Springboks squad again for the Test series, having made his debut against England in 2008, and played a pivotal role in the victory over Sir Ian McGeehan’s side.Despite suffering an ACL injury in 2010, Brüssow was a star of the Springboks between 2009 and 2011, famed for his presence at the breakdown. While the likes of David Pocock and Richie McCaw have been the names associated with their devastating prowess at the breakdown over the past decade, Brüssow was a match for either of them.However, a long string of injuries and changes in personnel in the Springboks’ coaching setup meant that Brüssow only managed 23 international caps, and he was never a central player in the team after 2011.He made his final Test appearance in 2015, and subsequently played domestic rugby in South Africa and Japan until he moved to England. But some fans on social media were even surprised that he was still playing, as injuries have deprived him of being the player that he promised to be in 2009.WATCH: Paul Williams red card for strike on Heinrich Brussow in 2011 RWCThere are still many fans that understand what a player Brüssow was, and have paid tribute to his career on social media, believing he should have won many more caps than he did. A few fans even feel that the law changes at the breakdown, forcing the tackler to release the ball carrier before competing for the ball, were actually implemented to nullify the dominance of the former openside. That is a signal of how much of a force he was at the highest level of the game. ADVERTISEMENTWas a victim of Heyneke Meyers’ obsession with behemoth loose forwards ….— Graeme Tarr (@GraemeTarr) October 23, 2019Should be a 100 cap veteran by now. A bit like Brent Russell should have been too. Obsession with size it seems….— DataAL (@AMorrissey2015) October 23, 2019ADVERTISEMENTI rate him as one of the best, He single-handedly defeated the British and Irish Lions on their tour to SA in 2009. The number of turnovers won or penalty points created was immense.— OLLYWOOD (@ocwood) October 23, 2019While Brüssow’s 5”11’ stature made him so prolific when it came to turnovers, as he was so hard to dislodge off the ball, some feel it was also the cause for his exclusion from the Test side, particularly during Heyneke Meyer’s tenure.South African coaches in the past have always favoured bigger forwards, and ultimately players like Brüssow have been overlooked despite their skill. The same was seen with Schalk Brits, who has only in the past year been appreciated by Rassie Erasmus, despite being the age of 38.Ultimately that is the South African way, and it brings them a lot of success, but many fans are looking back at what might have been for Brüssow.image credit: Northampton Saints Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Leo takes aim at Laporte after he was taken into police custody

first_imgWednesday Sep 23, 2020 Leo takes aim at Laporte after he was taken into police custody For anyone that has been a critic of World Rugby over the years, the recent revelation that vice-Chairman Bernard Laporte has been taken into police custody would have only given them more ammunition to attack the governing body. ADVERTISEMENTSo for CEO of the Pacific Rugby Players Welfare organisation Dan Leo, this news has only helped his campaign against World Rugby. The Frenchman is being questioned about his links with the Altrad Group and his preferential treatment of Montpellier, which comes months after being elected as vice-Chairman under Sir Bill Beaumont of World Rugby, and less than two weeks before he hopes to be re-elected as president of the French Rugby Federation. Though the 56-year-old has already publicly defended himself in a letter on Facebook, this has provided the former Samoa international with another line of attack against the governing body. Leo has urged World Rugby in recent months to look into the political ties in the Fijian Rugby Union, and has also lambasted World Rugby for the level of neutrality in their governance review, in which Laporte was a member of the Working Group. He took aim at Laporte on Twitter on Tuesday, saying: “So the man under investigation for fraud & accused of fixing WR chairman election is the same B. Laporte who sits on World Rugby’s Governance Review working group?”ADVERTISEMENTLeo continued, alluding to the different treatment between tier one and tier two nations in the game. He wrote: “Not saying we are perfect, but people do love pointing out Pacific Islands for corruption & calling for sanctions.“Wonder what happens when it’s one of the T1 nations & VC of Rugby’s governing body itself?”ADVERTISEMENTThe former Wasps loose forward has not relented in his pursuit for answers from World Rugby, and this Laporte story is yet more fodder for him that has fallen into his lap.

Screen House / Randy Bens Architect

first_imgArchDaily Houses Photographs:  Roger Brooks PhotographyText description provided by the architects. The clients of this 1954 bungalow asked Randy Bens Architect to add a new floor to the existing structure. Located in a post war suburban neighborhood that sits at the prow of a hill in New Westminster, British Columbia, the bungalow is surrounded by rich modernist architecture from that era. The existing house was an L-shaped bungalow that was too small for the clients, an artist and psychologist, who have three boys ages 17 to 26. The new floor would be the domain of the parents, and the boys would acquire main floor bedrooms of a more suitable size. The addition would be composed of a studio, master suite, and a deck to take advantage of the view. Architecturally, the goal was to knit together the old and new with simple gestures and materials that would be sympathetic to their context, yet fresh.Save this picture!© Roger Brooks PhotographyRecommended ProductsCoffee tablesBoConceptLos Angeles Lounge Table 6250WindowsJansenWindows – Janisol Arte 66WoodEGGERLow Flammability ProductsThe overall massing was influenced by the desire to stack the new program on existing walls (where possible), and by the creation of a new exterior space on the second floor with access to views and sunlight. Save this picture!© Roger Brooks PhotographyTo counter the vertical nature of the resulting mass, and shade the south facing living room, a horizontal screen was introduced which gives the composition a more restful and balanced appearance. The screen extends past the living room in both directions, creating a covered entry to the east and an open structured space to the west, where there will be a stand of bamboo. To further reinforce the horizontality of the screen, a concrete planter / plinth / address wall was introduced at the ground plane. Save this picture!© Roger Brooks PhotographyThere was a strong desire to have the house respond to the 1950’s and 1960’s post and beam houses in the neighbourhood. The vertical cedar siding, gently sloping roofs, exposed glulam beams and rafters are all present, but contemporary in their composition. Save this picture!© Roger Brooks PhotographyTo give the facades order and cohesion, two devices were used to mediate between existing and new openings. Bright rolled zinc panels were placed above and beside existing window openings, then aligned with new openings above. A simple through-wall flashing detail serves as a datum for window heads, mullions and sills, and is present on all facades.Save this picture!© Roger Brooks PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessMaterial beyond Materials: Composite TectonicsArticlesIn Progress: NASA Sustainability Base / William McDonough + Partners and AECOMArticles Share “COPY” Screen House / Randy Bens ArchitectSave this projectSaveScreen House / Randy Bens Architect ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/117561/screen-house-randy-bens-architect Clipboard Area:  3500 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/117561/screen-house-randy-bens-architect Clipboard “COPY” 2008 Year:  Photographs Architects: Randy Bens Architect Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Roger Brooks Photography+ 26 Share CopyHouses•New Westminster, Canada Screen House / Randy Bens Architect Canada Projects CopyAbout this officeRandy Bens ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew WestminsterHousesCanadaPublished on March 08, 2011Cite: “Screen House / Randy Bens Architect” 08 Mar 2011.

To satisfy a client’s passion for barns, we sought to capture the qualities of traditional barn structures (generous spaces; repetitive timber frames), while developing a modern building responding to the demands both of a residential program, and a site’s dramatic views of the adjacent corn field and nearby moody Atlantic coast. The main home is accompanied by a woodshop with adjoining changing rooms for use of the lap pool that lies just beyond. The woodshop was a special request from the client, an avid woodworker with passionate requirements about the shop’s aesthetic and geographical relationship to the house. With such a strong affinity for a hobby exercised indoors, we exploited the impressive scope of the site and the accompanying nature by designing a compound of buildings that incorporate the emotion of the surrounding outdoors from within the buildings themselves. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe entrance of the house is approached along a raised boardwalk. The entry sequence draws one through the building’s louvered skin into a two-story foyer overlooking a three story interior garden courtyard. The house’s public spaces are elevated to the second floor to capture the long views. The main space, an open living, dining and kitchen hall, opens to a billiard room below, and to a mezzanine and a ceiling-scape of delicate three-dimensional hybrid wood-and-steel timber frame members and slot skylight above. An immense stone fireplace divides this hall from the outdoor, screened porch beyond. The mezzanine opens outside to a rooftop garden connecting to a study tucked into the rafters. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe foremost determining feature of the project’s architecture is its collaborative use of inside and outside spaces that come together to form a dualistic experience; succeeding in bringing the outside in. To unify the various internal and external spaces, we created a translucent wrapper for the building of louvers and rain screen siding. In all, five outdoor courts and garden spaces are unified under the single roof, giving the structure a double reading of complexity from up close, and simple monolithic harmony from afar. When lit at night, the main house’s light shines from within the spaces between the louvers, allowing a gauzy translucence rarely seen in solid, volumetric structures. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe woodshop building also maintains the indoor-outdoor parti with a semi-covered rooftop patio alongside the upstairs woodshop entrance. Down below are the changing rooms, kitchen area and garage, with a breezeway dividing the indoor spaces on either side, paving the way to the pool straight ahead.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholProject gallerySee allShow lessWIFI Technology Center Proposal / AllesWirdGut + FCPArticlesCompetition for Design of Transport PackagingArticles Share CopyAbout this officeLSSOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 26, 2011Cite: “Louver House / LSS” 26 Dec 2011.

So I designed top-lights and terraces can bring light and wind into inside, without arranging a big window on the south part. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaI didn’t put so many walls on the shorter side to make the most use of the shape of the site. Instead of physical walls, glass tube and corner-less sash divide the space vaguely. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe glass tube that rises up from the garage functions as a ventilating device. It becomes the space that can install EV in the future. I paid my attention to reflectivity rather than permeability of the glass and it plays the role of the light pillar. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe aluminum sash between living room and terrace doesn’t have corner mullion. When both side of the sash are opened, the terrace becomes one space that is connected with inner space. The sash of bathroom or porch can be also all opened. Many combination of an opening-and-closing state of the sashes can respond to various scenes.  Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaWhen the sash of a porch and the top-light of a living room are opened, the prevailing wind from southeast will flow comfortably.  Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe finish material and color of walls of the longitudinal direction varies, and it changes reflection of light. When you are in the room, you can enjoy the changing, but once you leave the room, a visible area of the color look smaller. Therefore, the unity throughout the house will not be damaged. Save this picture!SectionThe ceiling height of the garage is 3m to be able to park the camper. I designed composition of a skip floor by using the height. The sight spreads not only to a horizontal direction but to top and bottom diagonally. There are various crossing sights in the house, and the sights lead to trees and sky of the further ahead. In the narrow space, by shifting your eyes aslant, the body inclines naturally.

Almost didactically the architecture tells us what is happening inside. At the same time the volumes are articulated to generate a large private garden open to the sun and the surrounding views. The whole house is built with load-bearing walls of gray concrete and steel columns. Outwardly the gray concrete, zinc panels and glass walls with anodized aluminum frames materializes the four volumes. Save this picture!Courtesy of LADAA With the decomposition of the requirement program into four volumes, we reached several objectives planed when analyzing the plot and its location. The first was to colonize the whole plot, making the area ours and eliminating any lost zones, the second was to search for a house with spatial continuity where the program wasn’t divided into stories as in a conventional building. For this we for opted for a spread-out at half-story intervals of the volumes, which in turn allow for adaptation to the natural slope of the area, something fundamental in the relationship with the exterior.  Save this picture!Courtesy of LADAAThe break with the traditional separation between inside and outside, which thanks to the local climate we can control to suit the user, according to their needs, with flexible and mobile closings. An important aspect was the idea of ​​humility. Outwardly we wanted to show the house as quiet and simple. And on the inside changing the scale, here showing it as extroverted, exaggerated and luxurious. Access to the house is through a two-story volume that opens to the north by a concrete canopy that serves as outside parking and to the south the views with the lobby and a library on the top floor. This part serves as the hinge between the Day area and the Night area. The bedrooms are located in a two-story volume, with the top floor for the parents and the ground floor for the children.  Save this picture!Courtesy of LADAAThe Day zones are divided into two volumes with one story each. One for the kitchen and the service area, and one for the living room. Inside, the transition between one volume and the next is solved with small steps, which solves the height difference the volumes present externally, in a natural way. Thereby enhancing the idea of ​​spatial continuity and facilitating the circulation of the users. As for the technological part, it’s noteworthy that thanks to a cross ventilation system we have been able to eliminate the artificial air conditioning normally in use during summer. The operation of this system is carried out by a system of sliding windows present throughout the house, some motorized and retractable with adjustable blinds.  Save this picture!Site PlanFor heating we have used a system of low temperature convectors embedded in the floor, always under and parallel to the large windows to reduce heat loss. As for the lighting system, the large windows are the main characters, which virtually disappear, incorporating the exterior into the interior space. For the artificial lighting a special ceiling piece has been designed, which serves to hide the curtains and generate linear lighting strips with LED’s, parallel to the windows empowering their presence in house and their character of glass walls.Project gallerySee allShow lessFarm Building Renovation / Loïc Picquet ArchitecteSelected ProjectsLibeskind Selected to Design Ohio Statehouse Holocaust MemorialArticles Share 2013 The Me Too House / LADAASave this projectSaveThe Me Too House / LADAASave this picture!Courtesy of LADAAHouses•Sagunto/Sagunt, Spain Projects Spain Area:  707 m² Area:  707 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeLADAAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSagunto/SaguntHousesSpainPublished on May 09, 2013Cite: “The Me Too House / LADAA” 09 May 2013.

The Gooden-Nahome family wanted to create a home on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and they found an incredible site overlooking the ocean. The biggest challenge we encountered was that their plot of land was predominantly comprised of a very steep slope, and the view of the ocean could only be seen from the upper-mid portion of the site. We saw this as an opportunity rather than a constraint and immediately considered an architectural response that was appropriate for these conditions. Save this picture!© Garcia Lachner photographyOriginally, we explored possibilities of creating large retaining walls and cutting back the soil in order to place the house, a technique typically employed for nearby buildings. Ultimately, we decided to do the exact opposite and therefore allow the slope, the earth, the vegetation, water, and animals to flow underneath the house. We essentially lifted the house up into the air on a series of piloti which gives the impression that it is floating above the hillside. By doing this we saved the immense cost of creating soil retention walls around the site. This common sense solution allowed us to create a very delicate intervention, one that allows the terrain to breathe whilst providing spectacular views out towards the ocean from the key location on the site.

Renovation of a forge to single family home with guest room, studio and gardens. On a unique location in the city of Ghent a single-family is realized within the walls of an old industrial building. The old brick forge and carpentry became the scene for the house as scaled room. Some shed roofs are retained, others are removed. Similarly, pieces of the concrete flooring are retained or removed. The house, a wood and steel framing with rational structure and readable use of material, cuts the plot in half. The result is a south facing, bar shaped volume which absorbs the confrontation between two complementary outdoor spaces: the walled garden and the workshop. If one goes through the gate, one enters a first room, a workshop space covered with the original shed roof. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThis open space is both a park and play area for the residents and a workplace. In that room three containers are strategically set up. Out of economic necessity, these compact prefabricated steel structures are used as storage and entry perpendicular to the house, and as ‘Bed&Breakfast’, stacked above the entrance porch. This ‘B&B’ is created by two containers internally linked to become a very vertical residence. At the same time they are used to stabilize the fragile old and by heritage intitutions protected front facade.
The second outdoor space is formed by an enclosed rear garden, bounded by a space under a maintained shed roof. This space looks back at the house. The feeling, of the room as a shed without a roof, is made permanent at any point of the plot.

Save this picture!SectionThe house is conceived as a transparent filter between the front and rear space. We inverse the classic principle: the opaque parts, in the otherwise glass front and back, are the opening parts. On summer days, when the walls are open, there is no visual separation between the more covered space to the street and the garden at the rear. Here the concept of front and rear becomes very ambiguous. A door opens very dramatically and changes the spatial constellation. On the south side the house gets translucent green plastic canopies to offer shade to the southern sun. On the first floor, these grills become a footbridge that gives the sleeping areas a relationship with the enclosed garden.

The construction of the house remains visible, slender white columns bear the open wooden scheduling. The cladding consists of untreated shingles. If they are wet, they become dark and get a varied and almost velvety appearance. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe ground floor is characterized by the materialization of some specific and unique fixed furniture:

- The kitchen, made of green plywood, brass and green concrete
- The fireplace, a central and naked space separating element
- The entrance container, finished with polish pine plywood
- The stairs, at the same time the library, made of dark-stained oak veneer plywood and black HPL.

A sustainable project is realized by the conscious choice for a compact air-conditioned volume, well-insulated walls, triple glazing, balance ventilation and louvers on the south side to counteract extreme solar heating.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessPraça Municipal 47 Building / Arquitetura NacionalSelected ProjectsHouse in Funabashi / Koji Hatano ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projectscenter_img “COPY” “COPY” Year:  Belgium Houses 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/514897/bomastraat-nu-architectuuratelier Clipboard Photographs Year: last_img read more

Designed for a young family in the suburban area of Rondebosch, Cape Town, this house sits on an elongated site with views towards Devil’s Peak and The Back Table, which is the south-eastern edge of the iconic Table Mountain. The client’s brief called for a contemporary, open plan home that provides a relaxed lifestyle and takes advantage of the site and its views.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe resultant form is a minimal white box containing the bedroom accommodation on the first floor, hovering over the living spaces on the ground floorbelow. This box was articulated with strategic openings maximising views and exposure to light, with a central courtyard carved out adjacent to the kitchen and dining room to create a focal point. The mass of the floating box is broken down on the street façade with a dramatic screen wall which creates an open-air terrace for the guest wing of the house. The screen offers privacy from the street while allowing views and light to permeate and is constructed from standard pre-cast concrete breeze blocks reminiscent of a bygone era.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe open plan living spaces on the ground floor spill out onto the courtyard and terrace to the North, with the garden and mountain views to the west. A hand selected tree was planted in the courtyard as a focal element to provide a shaded garden area that fills the adjacent spaces with dappled light. The tree acts as a natural screen to the direct north light and its canopy creates privacy for the first floor from neighbours.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe steel and timber stair connects the two levels and arrives in a large open plan utility space on the first floor which separates the guest wing from the master suite and maintains connections to the courtyard and tree below. Circulation spaces were minimised and were all arranged with external views on axis.Save this picture!© Adam LetchA simple pallet of materials allows space, light and volume to take preference over decorative finishes and elaboration. The ground floor has a monolithic polished concrete floor finish throughout which blurs the threshold between indoor and outdoor living capitalising on the South African climate. Upstairs, solid hardwood timber floorboards and natural limestone tiles create warmth and texture for the more intimate spaces of this home. Rough off-shutter concrete elements were used on the street boundary and the courtyard façade accentuating the white box through textural contrast.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis light-filled home, completed on time and within budget, successfully translates the clients brief and is a carefully considered response to the climatic and contextual conditions of the site. The client’s willingness for a bold conceptual design has resulted in a strong contemporary form uncommon to Rondebosch.

Aamodt / Plumb was commissioned to design a home for a young family on a beautiful site on Lake Austin with only one catch: an incredibly compressed 12-month schedule. “12 months is extremely fast!” notes Aamodt. “Twelve months made us realize that we had to think very differently about how to do this project. What we did was to redesign the process of building a house.”Save this picture!© Casey DunnThe architects built a complete Building Information Model (BIM) of the home in Revit before any construction happened. Then, to meet the tight schedule the young architects employed fast-tracking techniques typically used on large-scale projects and adapted them to the residential context where tolerances are much more demanding. They worked with Bensonwood, a high-tech sustainable timber company, to manufacture panelized sections of the house in their factory off-site. At the same time, all of the site-work and foundation work was performed on-site by Austin’s high-performance builder Risinger Homes. This significantly reduced the amount of time to construct the building envelope. Matt Risinger of Risinger homes commented: “We were able to frame the house in just two weeks. That’s pretty incredible for a 6,000 square foot custom home.” The factory fabrication also meant that the envelope of the house fit together so well that the house was approaching passive energy standards with no additional measures. The architects were left with an air-tight envelope and fully complete site-work in the same amount of time that a normal house might have had only the site-work or foundations completed.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house itself has an airy, relaxed feel that matches perfectly with the relaxed Austin vibe. Spaces blend with one another and views outside and to the lake beyond bring nature into the house. The house is divided into two wings: a private wing for the family to sleep and work in, and a public wing for dining, entertaining, and recreation. The split massing of the house allowed the architects to preserve all of the trees on the site and the house nestles around a mature live oak tree which adds to a sense of privacy and connection to nature.Save this picture!© Casey DunnOn the exterior of the house, the high performance timber panels are clad in Shou Sugi Ban charred Cyprus, an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood by charring and cooling the wood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPhyfP-qMM4 The black finish of the charred Cyprus is offset by a lightweight white steel roof that efficiently reflects the rays of the Texas sun away from the house keeping it cool during the summer months.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe architects, their builder, and fabricator deployed a novel use of prefabrication technology, and interior planning and organization, and traditional techniques to execute a high-end custom home that feels comfortable and effortless in a record amount of time.Save this picture!© Casey DunnProject gallerySee allShow lessThe New New York Skyline (Sunlight Not Included)Architecture NewsPeter Zumthor: “There’s Nothing I’m Not Interested In”Videos Share “COPY” Houses United States “COPY” Save this picture!© Casey Dunn+ 15 Share CopyHouses•Austin, United States Year:  ArchDaily Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAustin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architects Projects Area:  6000 ft² Area:  6000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architectscenter_img Year:  Risinger Homes Architects: Aamodt / Plumb Architects Area Area of this architecture project photographs:  Casey DunnPhotographs:  Casey Dunn 2014 Builder: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/777901/austin-home-aamodt-plumb-architects Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/777901/austin-home-aamodt-plumb-architects Clipboard Photographs 2014 CopyAbout this officeAamodt / Plumb ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinUnited StatesPublished on November 30, 2015Cite: “Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architects” 30 Nov 2015.

The brief from the client required the design of a home for a family of four in a bushveld estate. The site is a bushveld plot of 1 hectare, and is situated in the Roodeplaat Dam catchment area and required a sensitive approach to the siting of the building. The building is carefully placed as pavilions between the existing thorn trees. The four pavilions for living, sleeping, services and guests are linked to form a combined living unit. Pavilions form courtyards for living in the bush between them.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe house consists of three conceptual elements: The roof and ceiling emulates the horizontal plane of the acacia thorn trees providing shade for its inhabitants. Secondly The 2 “anthill like” fireplaces are beacons in the landscape, and thirdly the jagged edge stonewall elements emulates the klip kopje of the landscapes.Save this picture!© DOOKThe roof height is kept to the minimum to create homely spaces as well as to ensure a low visual impact on the natural environment. The basic structure is of the building is a steel shed with infill timber windows and masonry walls under the shed. A timber lathe ceiling is suspended from the steel structure to form a highly insulated roof cavity to avoid summer over heating and winter heat loss.Save this picture!© DOOKThe masonry walls were placed under the roof structure surface after it was erected and are free form shapes.

Elevated Assembly was designed for a noted writer/artist/garden designer couple with two young children, with a second apartment as rentable tenant space in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The three-story townhouse, built originally around 1900, was severely damaged when Superstorm Sandy flooded the basement and ground floor with eight and a half feet of water. A portion of the building collapsed, requiring a complete gut renovation. Working closely with the New York City housing recovery program “BUILD IT BACK”, this project became the first in the city to elevate an existing attached masonry rowhouse so that the ground floor would be two feet above the high water line, the so-called Design Flood Elevation (DFE).Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaThe main concept and name of this project emphasized the lifting of the building as a recognition of the process of destruction and recovery for a new set of environmental conditions. This design imperative led to the creation of the dramatic open loft space filled with natural light that merged the exterior and interior space in an extended, raised garden, designed by one owner and the company she works with, Urban Green. Flood resilient design guidelines were incorporated throughout and all the floor elevations were also raised as a result of locating the first floor above the DFE. Meeting the new code requirements enabled the overall height of the building to be increased, accommodating the new penthouse addition.Save this picture!PlansThe ground floor living quarters enjoy a dramatic 17’ double height space with monumental glazing to blur the boundary between the inside and outside. It opens to the south rear garden through the restored deck.  The mezzanine and the floor below have a more domestic atmosphere with a modest ceiling height and comprise the master bedroom, children’s bedroom and bathroom. The mezzanine utilizes a custom blackened cable net designed by Cabletech in Prague, the owners’ original home, to minimize the separation between the spaces and create a more impressive view out the back wall to the garden.Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaThe same design concept was applied to the top two floors to create a 2-bedroom rental unit. The penthouse has an open living space quarter with large sliding door which opens to the rooftop terrace garden and panoramic city view, while the 2nd floor houses intimate private quarters.Save this picture!SeectionsThe new custom patterned aluminum shingle wraps the entire penthouse and bulkhead volume creating a striking “box on a box” with subtle sparkling effects when hit with natural light during the day.  The juxtaposition of the existing exterior brick façade and new metal penthouse creates an iconic contrasting presence on the street, reinforcing the newly elevated design of the structure.Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaPublic circulation was placed to the west side with a monumental narrow stair as often found in classic loft buildings. A dramatic double height entrance door with frosted wire glass also indicates the elevation of the entire house while bringing diffused light into the space and enhancing the unique front step material change from concrete and tile to wood per the flood design guidelines.Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaFor the interior finish, the fully reclaimed and rebuilt brick wall is featured with exposed steel reinforcement and sections of newly painted insulated walls as a carefully studied the composition.  The interior palette of white walls, polished concrete floor, and brick creates a calm background for warm vintage wood furnishing, a large collection of philosophy, art and architecture books and a beautiful mix of interior plantings which echo the exterior garden.Project gallerySee allShow lessExpo 2020 Dubai Pavilions and ArchitectureArchitecture NewsRobotics Start-up Proposes Smart, Motorized Ceiling FurnitureArchitecture News Share Photographs:  Mikiko Kikuyama Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Engineering Solutions CopyAbout this officeTAKATINAOfficeFollowProductsSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBrooklynUnited StatesPublished on September 28, 2018Cite: “Brooklyn Townhouse – Elevated Assembly / TAKATINA” 28 Sep 2018.

This is the first building that catches your eyes when you get out of the station. Accordingly, we have designed this building not just as a simple cube, but as a funny and interesting form composed by two sides of the façade in order to make people create various images. It is designed sharply, clearly and dynamically. The name of this place is Sumizome-Cho, Fushimi-Ku in Kyoto city. This building has three stories made of a steel structure. The first and the second floor are for tenants, a pharmacy and a nursery school respectively. The third floor is a residential space for the parents of the client.Save this picture!Sections The north side of this site faces the main street of this neighborhood. There is a bridge east of the site, which connects the site and the main shopping street. The railway station is just 5 meters away from here. A small canal runs along the site. It is named “Kamogawa-Unga,” one of the branches of the Lake Biwa Canal, which was constructed during the Meiji period. This man-made waterway reminds neighbors of the history of the development of this area. This is one of “the traces of Kyoto’s dream.” It will be explained below. Our young client was born in this place and is working in Tokyo now. His parents ran a vegetable shop, but they felt they were too old to keep it and decided to close it down. Their house for working and living was dilapidated, so their son, i.e. our client decided to rebuild it. Save this picture!© Koichi Torimura The program was very clear. The first and the second floor will be designed for shops or retails, and the third floor is a residence for his parents. In the future, he might come back to this place and will have his own office in this building. Our client believes that this town should be changed to a more beautiful place. When he was looking for an architect, he noticed an interesting building in his neighborhood. It was an apartment house named “Slit Court” designed by our office, the Eastern Design Office. Our office is also along this canal and we are neighbors. The “ Slit Court” built along the main street is just 15-meters west from this “Kanoko House”. This site is a nice viewpoint seen from the station near a small canal.  From this place, we can get a wide view of the main street and the canal. We have suggested several designs and the “asymmetrical form” was the one our client preferred, saying this irregularly shaped design is beautiful.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe first and the second floor for shops face to the canal with a glass facade. The third floor is rather enclosed and we have designed small windows at some points to get the light and sight. The idea of the entire shape is to cut a part of the north corner diagonally and make terraces in that area. We intended to make the volume of the three-story building into one controlled design, yet each tenant floor is open to the town to let them interact lively and actively. At the pharmacy on the first floor, moms and kids are able to play in a kids corner provided in front of the canal. That is where the tip of the diagonal cut west facade and the ground meat. At the nursery school on the second floor, you can see the kids playing. In the evening, the lighting of each floor is gently shining and at night, lighting from the small windows rhythmically flourishes. About the canal “Kamogawa Unga“, “a trace of Kyoto’s dream”. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraBefore the Meiji era, the capital of Japan had been in Kyoto, but it was transferred to Tokyo as a result of the Meiji Restoration, which consequently leads to the decline of Kyoto. Therefore, people of Kyoto decided to construct a new Lake Biwa Canal for tapping water, waterways as transportation artery and waterpower that would stimulate new industries to trigger the revitalization of Kyoto. At that time, most of the civil engineering construction was designed and supervised by foreign engineers, but these canals are the first project that was carried out by the Japanese engineers only. There has been a hydroelectric power station 1 km southwards from this site. This canal has played a key role as a basic driving power to contribute to thriving newer industries such as spinning, stretching copper panels, machinery, Tobacco and so on. Our client named this building “Kanoko building“ from the image of the fawn/young deer drinking water next to the bridge over the small canal.

The single family house at Stathelle in Bamble, Telemark is located in a new residential area at Ekstrand that was established in the end of the 90s. Important premises for the project was the unique views from the plot, large hight differences in the terrain, areas of nature conservation on one of the sides of the plot, and the relationship to the surrounding houses.Save this picture!© Vegard GiskehaugFurther on the area regulation demanded adjustments concerning the shape of the roof and the building type, the clients wish to use low maintenance materials and view and sun direction was leading elements in the design process.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Lower floor planCedar wood was chosen for the exterior cladding, as it has a natural resistance to rot, fungi and weather conditions, and it can stand without any treatment up to forty years. It gives a beautiful and noble surface that quickly attain a silver-gray patina. The masonry is continuing the expression from the surrounding white houses, only made in a maintenance friendly material.Save this picture!© Vegard GiskehaugThe main wing of the house is placed towards the end of the plot. It is perceived as very light and open from the inside, while from the outside, seen from the sea, it fits the old neighboring buildings with it’s gabled roof. On the other part of the house, where it faces some newer houses, it takes a more modern shapes, and respects the view and sun conditions of the neighbors.Save this picture!© Vegard GiskehaugProject gallerySee allShow lessMontbau Library Rehabilitation / OliverasBoix ArquitectesSelected ProjectsTokyo Travel Diary: Architecture and MangaArticles Share Year:  “COPY” Houses Projects Bolig Ekstrand House / Borve Borchsenius ArkitekterSave this projectSaveBolig Ekstrand House / Borve Borchsenius Arkitekter Norway Architects: Borve Borchsenius Arkitekter Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img CopyAbout this officeBorve Borchsenius ArkitekterOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNorwayPublished on July 06, 2019Cite: “Bolig Ekstrand House / Borve Borchsenius Arkitekter” 06 Jul 2019.

The House is located in a quite street of the Oasis neighborhood of Casablanca. As the city, we wanted a simple white house, that combines both modernism and functionalism. The clients were involved in the making of the house which made both the design concept and the site built challenging. The ergonomic and the everyday use were the main things to care of in the design pattern.Save this picture!© Alessio MeiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!East ElevationSave this picture!© Alessio MeiIt’s is conceived in two volumes parts, one on the street side on the ground floor, double height and a second in the background with a basement and a second floor. The first part is single storey built and include a double living room, dining room, guest cloakroom and kitchen. The second, is a one floor which hosts family living spaces with (bedrooms, TV room, hammam, gym, etc.)Save this picture!© Alessio MeiAs the main façade is facing the south, we managed a concrete awning and motorized louvers to protect from the sun during summer and to let it in during winter days. The infinity pool with green bali stone link the two levels of the house and is seen from every corner of it. Most of the flooring inside and out are made with the same limestone which keeps a peaceful atmosphere with not much colors or materials.Save this picture!© Alessio MeiProject gallerySee allShow lessWith21 Boutique Hotel / Jupiter & MarsSelected ProjectsThe Old Granary Musem / GAPP Architects & Urban DesignersSelected Projects Share Year:  2020 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/947371/villa-c-yachar-bouhaya-architecte Clipboard ArchDaily Houseslast_img read more

A 1000 m2 plot at a five-minute walk from the center of Reus. In the middle of the site, a self-built country house. A hidden misfit gem. The late grandfather bought this mas many years ago. He spent the second part of his life taking care of it. Using his skills as a watchmaker, he patiently assembled additions, welding, screwing, and growing all kinds of rooms, huts, shacks, porches, fig trees, palm trees, plants, and shades: An outdoors abode, a second house around the former one-floor self-built construction. The house was in a perpetual state of construction, a never-ending laborious enjoyment for its dwellers. And then in 2016 the father died, and the place was empty. A year after the father’s passing, the son, his wife, and daughter -the JECs- decided to move back in. Their only initial demand was that they wanted to live on the ground floor. The JECs first question was whether it was better to keep the existing mas, or to demolish it and build a new structure instead?Save this picture!© José HeviaThe value of this place was not the existing main house. Although its structure was quite in good shape, what made it inhabitable were its self-built garden structures. These outdoor shelters are the real quality of this place. They are impossible to design. Probably they are impossible to reproduce. They are extremely fragile, to the point that it seems impossible to repair them. What we needed to find was a way to up-cycle these structures, and add some more inhabitable air among them. Our approach was not to touch what we wanted to keep -we would just paint it.Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!© José HeviaSo neither we kept the existing mas as is, nor we totally demolished it. Instead, we placed more inhabitable air in the worst area of the plot, which was often shaded by the main house. The extension is family to the existing porches. In order to minimise the impact of this new structure, we kept its weight light as a porch, using CLT panels and thin steel tubes. The presence of quite tall apartment blocks on the northern and north-western side protects the site from the strong Mestral winds and shades it during the hot summer afternoons. Surrounded by this slight geological ring, a microclimate unfolds.Save this picture!© José HeviaWe took advantage of our neighbour’s accidental gift by using some lighter construction techniques and opening up towards the western light. By maintaining the old constructions, we got three autonomous habitats, that the family will use according to their changing needs through the seasons and decades. We erased any trace of the program or specific use in the mas. Kitchen, gone. Bathrooms, gone. Rooms, gone. A space is devoid of any program or even suggestion of use. What could be foreseen as a buffer space might become the daughter’s house. What was thought of as a guest apartment might become the writing room…Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Cross section 02Save this picture!© José HeviaWe separated the bid into two: one for the off-site CLT panels system, with a tolerance of 2 mm; the other for the on-site wet and hot masonry work; and established a very simple protocol so the two parts could work well together. The engineered timber extension was assembled in two weeks. The old house took almost a year to be ready, and it ended up in a final paradox: we had to change many construction details to adapt them to the specific skills of the masons, moving from BIM to bricolage, as if their hand’s were conduits of the late father’s soul, imprinted in the up-cycled terrazzo pavement or the polished brick floors. The late father’s workshop is now a very popular guest apartment.Save this picture!© José HeviaProject gallerySee allShow lessAlison Brooks Imagines Cadence, a Mixed-Use Urban Block, Part of the King’s Cross Ce…Architecture NewsCAA Designs a Modular and Futuristic Floating City for LegoArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/953519/jec-house-aixopluc Clipboard Architects: Aixopluc Area Area of this architecture project 2018last_img read more
