See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 15th March, 2020 | More on: KGF RIO STAN The market crash has turned up some fantastic FTSE 100 dividend bargains for investors with a five- to 10-year investment horizon. With that being the case, here are three FTSE 100 dividend stocks that look cheap after current declines.FTSE 100 dividend championIron ore miner Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO) has become a FTSE 100 dividend champion over the past five years. The company has transformed itself from an inefficient, overleveraged outfit, into one of the index’s most cash-generative businesses.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…Investors have been able to reap the rewards. The group announced a succession of record dividends, including the latest $3.7bn distribution for the second half of 2019. In total, last year, the company returned $7.2bn in cash to investors.While the current virus outbreak might have an impact on the demand for iron ore around the world, Rio’s size, strong balance sheet and scale should mean it can quickly recover when the economy starts to grow again.Therefore, now could be a great time to snap up a share in this business at a discount price. The stock is currently dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8.8, which suggests a wide margin of safety at current levels. A dividend yield of 7.2% is also an offer, above the FTSE 100 dividend yield of 4.7%.KingfisherB&Q-owner Kingfisher (LSE: KGF) is also likely to suffer from a drop in demand following the Covid-19 outbreak in the near term. However, as one of the largest home improvement companies in the UK, the retailer is well-positioned to make a strong comeback.The DIY and home improvement market in the UK is worth £14bn a year and it’s growing again after years of stagnation. Online sales of DIY and gardening equipment could increase by 53% between 2018 and 2023 to £598m.Kingfisher should be able to capitalise on this growth. The company has recently embarked on a restructuring plan to reduce costs and improve customer service. This should help turbocharge growth as the market expands.Right now, the stock supports a dividend yield of 6.4% and trades at a P/E of 8.4. Once again, these figures suggest the stock offers a wide margin of safety, implying now could be the time to snap up a share of this un-loved enterprise.Standard CharteredEmerging markets-focused banking group Standard Chartered (LSE: STAN) has lost more than a third of its market value this year. Investors are concerned about the bank’s exposure to Asian economies, which are being ravaged by the Covid-19 outbreak.While this disruption will undoubtedly hit Standard’s earnings in the near term, over the long run, customers will still need a banking partner. Standard is one of the best banking brands in Asia.After several years of restructuring and improving its capital position, the bank is now in a stronger position than it has been for more than a decade. That means it now has the financial flexibility to weather the current storm.Recent declines have pushed the bank’s valuation down to just 0.5% of tangible book value. This suggests the stock could be worth 100% more than its current multiple when investor confidence returns.It also offers a yield of 4.7%, so investors will be paid to wait for a recovery. 3 FTSE 100 dividend stocks I’d buy in the market crashlast_img read more

Which coronavirus vaccine stock has the biggest potential to make me a millionaire?

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The rush to find a vaccine to prevent, or a treatment to at least dampen the impact of, the coronavirus has been under way for months. Unsurprisingly, these aren’t the easiest product to develop, given that we’re still getting to grips with the finer details of the virus itself.Some of the brightest minds globally are working at breakneck speed trying to find a vaccine. For pharmaceutical companies, developing vaccines/treatments also means a revenue stream for the successful firm. So which coronavirus-focused stocks are worth buying into?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…Millionaire potential?Claiming that a stock has the potential to make you a millionaire is bold. Yet for coronavirus vaccine or treatment stocks, this is genuinely viable. Just look at how news of a successful treatment test on certain patients drove the Synairgen (LSE: SNG) share price up 420% in one day! Other stocks in the US have seen similar surges, making it plausible that exceptionally large returns might lie ahead.For investors, even with a relatively small investment, triple-digit returns pocketed in a short period of time would compound to help you towards the million mark.My favourite coronavirus vaccine stockSynairgen saw share price gains on its treatment test news. When a firm actually completes all clinical trials and has a vaccine on the open market, its share price would likely bounce even higher.So which likely candidate is my favourite? If you’re looking for a FTSE 100 stalwart with good potential, then look no further than GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). The pharma giant is in a partnership with French company Sanofi to create a vaccine. Earlier this week, GSK reported discussions with the EU Commission about supplying over 300m doses of the potential product. In my opinion, such talks wouldn’t be happening if the partnership wasn’t close to offering something to the market.The GSK share price rallied on this news on Monday. Yet I’d still buy now as there’s plenty of upside to be had. The share price is down 17% from the highs of the year, and I feel this could easily be eclipsed if confirmation comes through of a successful vaccine.A treatment alternativeA lot of investors are bullish on the Synairgen share price, despite the huge rally already seen. Personally, I’m sceptical about investing in it, simply because its fate hangs on the treatment. At least with GSK, I’d feel confident holding the firm in my portfolio even if it fails in efforts to make a coronavirus vaccine because it has so many other powerful products. But I do agree that there would be significant upside for Synairgen if it could produce a viable treatment. So for investors happy to take added risk, allocating a small proportion of your funds into Synairgen isn’t a bad idea. However, be warned that there could be a significant sell-off in the share price if news comes out that there are serious complications on bringing a treatment to market.Overall, coronavirus vaccine/treatment stocks such as GSK and Synairgen do have the potential to make you a million. Rapid returns just on news headlines have already shown that. I would never recommend rushing into any investment though, especially a smaller firm like Synairgen. So Glaxo would be my pick for a topical investment with long-term appeal.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Kevin Brown ordained, consecrated Delaware bishop

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Bishop Consecrations, House of Bishops, Newly ordained and consecrated Diocese of Delaware Bishop Kevin Brown, left, listens to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Photo: Diocese of Delaware[Episcopal Diocese of Delaware] It was a joyful day in Dover, Delaware, on Dec. 9, when the Rt. Rev. Kevin S. Brown was ordained and consecrated as the 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware.Brown was elected on July 15, marking the culmination of a search that began in April 2016, after Bishop Wayne P. Wright announced his retirement.Despite the snow, approximately 750 people attended and participated in the two-hour service, with the theme of “Come, Holy Spirit,” at Delaware State University’s Education and Humanities Theater.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry served as the chief consecrator, and Wright and West Tennessee Bishop Don E. Johnson acted as co-consecrators. The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple, bishop suffragan of North Carolina, and the Rt. Rev. Hector Monterroso, bishop assistant of Texas, acted as additional consecrators.The Drum Circle of the Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew signaled the start of the three processionals with synchronized rhythm that immediately set a tone of high energy for the pageantry of the celebration. Accompanied by organ and a tympani and brass quintet, a 112-voice choir, comprising singers from churches across the diocese, swelled in song and heralded the processions of service participants; diocesan, ecumenical, and interfaith clergy; and visiting and co-consecrating bishops.The Rev. Amanda K. Robertson, associate rector at Brown’s former parish in Charlotte, North Carolina, delivered the sermon, which drew appreciative laughter and murmurs of agreement. She also acknowledged her former boss as an admired colleague and true friend.She went on to urge Brown, “Remember your authority. As bishop you will be entrusted with oversight that is intended to be rooted in relationship and respect. Even someone as committed as you are to serving alongside and not over, to uplifting others’ gifts and ministries, and giving credit where credit is due, even you must accept the imbalance of power and authority that will exist in most of your daily interactions. You will need confidantes and counselors who are able to speak as freely as you are.”Echoing the theme, she said, “The Holy Spirit invoked in blessing and consecration is the power by which the raw material of our lives becomes holy. And so it is, that in just a moment’s time, a craft beer- and baseball-loving man from the mountains of North Carolina, a scholar of mathematics and ecumenism, a tree house-building father and fan (along with his younger daughter) of Arcade Fire, will be made a bishop in our Church. Come, Holy Spirit.”Brown was vested with a stole and chasuble, gifts of the people of the Diocese of Delaware; a pectoral cross, gift of his family; and a ring, gift of the clergy of the Diocese of Delaware. He was also presented with a miter, gift of his former parish of Holy Comforter; a cope, gift of the Diocese of North Carolina; and a rochet and a chimere, gifts of the Diocese of West Tennessee, where Brown had also served. Wright presented him the crozier of the Diocese of Delaware.Brown followed the exchange of the Peace with his thanks, saying, “It will take me a while to get used to this hat.” He also commented, “Prayer will change your life if you let it.”On his first Sunday as bishop, Brown attended an evensong service of Lessons and Carols at Christ Church Christiana Hundred in Wilmington.Brown grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, and studied mathematics and psychology at Duke University. He completed his master of business administration at the University of West Florida while in the U.S. Air Force, worked in finance and marketing at FedEx, and launched an investment firm, before earning a master of divinity from the General Theological Seminary in New York City.Before the election, he served as rector at Holy Comforter, where he led the merger of separate English and Spanish preschools into a single groundbreaking school focused on bilingual education and dedicated to access for low-income and immigrant families. He previously served as rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Paris, Tennessee.Following the election, Brown and his wife, Caroline, an accomplished artist, relocated and now live in Wilmington. They have two college-age daughters.The Episcopal Diocese of Delaware encompasses the three counties of Delaware and includes 9,300 congregants and 34 worshipping communities.— Lola Michael Russell is staff writer for the Delaware Communion Magazine.

The Eaves House renovation aimed to adequate a pre-owned family house in a traditional neighborhood of São Paulo to the reality of their grandson’s newly formed family. Thus, the project needed to be flexible to predict its growth and changes throughout the time. There was also a desire to privilege intimate spaces for family time besides social spaces to gather friends for meals or cocktails.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaRecommended ProductsDoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsBefore the renovation, the house had its rooms divided into three different floors: the ground floor for access, an intermediary floor with the living room and the kitchen and finally the bedrooms’ floor. In other words: the more you distance yourself from the street, the more you get into the house intimacy – and we’ve chosen to keep the logic for the renovation. In the new project, the access floor holds an office and a TV room, spaces which work independently from the rest of the residence; the intermediary floor holds the social spaces, such as the living and dining rooms, the kitchen and the pool. And finally, in the upper floor are located the bedrooms and a new extra floor that will fit two more rooms in the future.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaModern meets antique through the roofing structure. Its generous wood eave connects third and fourth floors, forming a unique tilted plan. The roof tilted plan, altogether with the concrete eaves are the most notorious elements in the façades. That is why we named it “Eaves House”.Save this picture!AxonometricThe mashrabiya-like window screens – a traditional Islamic architectural element, resignified and commonly used in Brazilian architecture – are another attractive element in the façade. They fit for two kinds of purposes: the bedrooms needed natural light, but also required more privacy due to their large openings. The wood screens enabled a better adjustment to both light and visibility: when the screens are closed, those who are inside the room can see outside the window, but the inverse does not occur. Furthermore, as the screens are permeable, they allow a permanent natural ventilation even when they are closed.The owner has spent most of his childhood in this house. Therefore, the renovation aimed to preserve its memory, maintaining a nostalgic feel to it. That is why we chose to keep many of the original elements: the old wooden roof framing over the dining room was exposed and reinforced and the fireplace’s brick wall was revealed. The combination of brick and wood makes warm and welcoming environments.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaFire is the main element in the intermediary floor rooms – as in primitive history, people would gather together around a source of fire. The wood fired oven inside the house was one of the client’s dream. A place where they could truly enjoy the experience of baking and cooking, whilst not being physically segregated from the rest of the floor.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaThe oven is located in the middle of the kitchen and the dining room and it is not separated by any walls, making a soft transition between the two ambiances. The fireplace, in the room right next to the kitchen, is more of a contemplative space, but also provides a cozy atmosphere for sharing and relaxing moments. The large window behind the fireplace is faced to a beautiful green wall, involving the viewer in its energy.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaJust as it happens in the living room, the connection between inside and outside is one of the main design virtues in the Eaves House. The dining room is surrounded by three generous glass doors, from where you have a privileged view of the garden, the new wooden deck and the swimming pool. More than a residence, the Eaves House is a place to cherish old memories and construct new stories together.Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaProject gallerySee allShow lessGymnasium, Blaise Pascal High School / Koffi & Diabaté ArchitectesSelected ProjectsMecanoo’s Kaohsiung Center Photographed Through the Lens of Sytze BoonstraArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/912078/eaves-house-zoom-urbanismo-arquitetura-e-design Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/912078/eaves-house-zoom-urbanismo-arquitetura-e-design Clipboard ArchDaily Eaves House / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design Area:  4843 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY” Photographs Eaves House / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e DesignSave this projectSaveEaves House / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design Photographs:  Maíra Acayaba Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project center_img Save this picture!© Maíra AcayabaCurated by Matheus Pereira Share Year:  2017 Houses Architects: Zoom Urbanismo, Arquitetura e Design Area Area of this architecture project Brazil Projects CopyAbout this officeZoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBricksSão PauloWood ConcreteBeiralBrazilPublished on February 28, 2019Cite: “Eaves House / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design” [Casa Beiral / Zoom Urbanismo Arquitetura e Design] 28 Feb 2019.

Malvern Garden House is a highly-considered adaption of an existing 1930’s period home in a hilly suburban pocket, with a new pavilion embedded within the terraced garden to the rear. Most fundamentally, the design response seeks to actively reposition the home within its unique site, thereby strengthening and celebrating the bonds of the everyday architectural experience within its immediate, lived-in landscape.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellPeriod homes are often typified by disparate, compartmentalised spaces, lacking vital connection to the outdoors. To this end, the original dwelling presented the familiar challenge of reworking a robust, but out-dated home, no longer conducive to the contemporary lifestyle and aspirations of its inhabitants. Keen to harness the unique external conditions, our approach focussed on the sensitive layering of re-orientated internal spaces within the existing and new floorplates, injecting natural light deep into the home, and contrasting expansive new views across the north-facing garden beyond with a series of sculptural, shrouded apertures.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe addition itself accommodates a new kitchen and dining space, bookending a sequence of dissolving thresholds into the new pavilion. The modest (and somewhat contextually atypical) addition is strategically embedded within the highest point of the site. The formal, yet immediately tactile use of concrete evokes a sense of permanence and creates a space of daily ritual and refuge. A ‘fourth terrace’ or sorts, the pavilion immediately takes cues from its context, supporting an unseen rooftop garden overhead, with vegetation spilling over a smooth concrete lip, echoing that of the garden retainers below. This roof garden, along with the significant thermal mass of the new addition actively provide warmth during the cooler winter months. The double-glazed threshold is purposefully set within the horizontal concrete forms, offering passive shading and highlighting the elegant cylindrical corner column which acts as a sundial throughout the year.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellEssential to the project brief was to establish adaptable zoning that would nurture a young family, as well as provide comfortable accommodation for extended family. This is perhaps most simply conveyed through the diverse, yet equally-distributed arrangement of shared and secluded spaces across the shifting levels and their subsequent relationship within the ‘layered garden’ of the overall site.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe actively sought to identify typical motifs within the existing home from the outset, which have been reinterpreted holistically, forming both gestural and fine-grain guideposts throughout. Simply, the heritage stepped-brick detail is echoed in the concrete corbelling, anchoring the new addition into the earth. Similarly, the heritage panelwork within the entrance hall delicately traces throughout the existing interior spaces, forming a familiar datum that continues through into the new pavilion.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellDuring the course of this project, we worked closely with a skilled team of contractors, consultants and tradespeople. The garden was expertly reimagined by Ben Scott Garden Design, incorporating the majestic established oak and elm trees as a backdrop for enriching outdoor spaces for play, produce and respite.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessart BLD.

Average US price of gas up 5 cents a gallon to $2.50

first_img Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 7, 2021 Pinterest Twitter TAGS  Twitter Average US price of gas up 5 cents a gallon to $2.50 WhatsAppcenter_img Facebook Local NewsState WhatsApp Pinterest CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline jumped 5 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $2.50. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg of the Lundberg Survey said Sunday the increase was caused by a continuing rise in crude oil prices since November.

Inmates at St. Louis jail set fires, break out windows

first_img TAGS  WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Pinterest Previous articleWyoming GOP censures Rep. Liz Cheney over impeachment voteNext articleMcBride, Sherman help No. 17 West Virginia top No. 23 Kansas Digital AIM Web Support Facebook Inmates at a St. Louis jail set fires, caused flooding, broke out fourth-floor windows and tossed a stationary bike, chairs and mattresses outside Saturday in the latest disturbance over concerns about the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions that have limited visits and stalled court proceedings, officials said. Dozens of law enforcement officers worked for hours before bringing the riot at the St. Louis City Justice Center under control shortly before 10 a.m., a spokesman for Mayor Lyda Krewson, Jacob Long, said. About 115 inmates were involved, said Long, who described the group as “extremely violent and noncompliant” in an interview with The Associated Press. One corrections officer was attacked and treated at a hospital for his injuries before being released, Long said. No detainees were hurt, he said. Video posted on social media by passersby showed inmates standing near three windows on the fourth floor that had been smashed out. Some carried signs or tossed items, some ablaze, to the sidewalk below. Firefighters used a hose to put out the fires. Long didn’t have a cost estimate for the damage but described it as “fairly extensive.” “There are some burn marks on the front of the building. They destroyed the inside of their floor and threw all sorts of stuff outside. … They flooded the floors, clogged the toilets, clogged the drains, so there is water damage,” Long said. One issue that played a roll in the mayhem was a locking problem that allows inmates to free themselves from their cells by tampering with the locks, said Jimmie Edwards, the city’s director of public safety. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that officials have been dealing with the problem since December. Long said 65 inmates were transferred from the downtown jail and into the St. Louis Medium Security Institution, also known as the workhouse. He also said that law enforcement has talked to the prosecutor’s office and that the potential exists that some of those involved could face additional charges. In late December and early January, dozens of inmates were transferred from the St. Louis City Justice Center after two separate disturbances. Officials have said inmates were upset about conditions in the jail amid the pandemic. Although there were no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among the 633 people jailed at the St. Louis Justice Center as of Friday, tensions have been simmering. “I imagine they are under the same amount of stress due to COVID restrictions like the rest of us are,” Long said. “Courts haven’t been hearing cases in the 22nd Judicial Circuit. Their family visits have been restricted. But also they are acting out and that is the current situation.” Activists have protested conditions at the workhouse for years, but plans to close it have stalled, with backers of keeping it open saying it provides a way to space out inmates amid the pandemic. “These events demonstrate the need to have two facilities at this time,” Long said.center_img Inmates at St. Louis jail set fires, break out windows WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 6, 2021 Local NewsUS News Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
