Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended S & U and Schroders (Non-Voting). 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. I think buying UK shares can be a great way to generate a passive income. With that in mind, here are five I’d buy right now with attractive income credentials. Passive income opportunityWhile buying dividend shares can be an excellent way to generate a passive income, dividends are never guaranteed. As dividends are paid out of profits, it may have to reduce the payout if a company’s probability slumps. There are plenty of other reasons why a business may have to reduce its dividend as well.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…As such, investing in dividend shares may not be suitable for all investors who want to generate a passive income. However, I’m comfortable with the risks involved. That’s why I’d buy the companies outlined below for my portfolio of UK shares. UK shares to buyThree companies I’d acquire, with dividend yields ranging from 3% to 3.3%, are Schroders, S&U and 3i Infrastructure.All of these businesses have different strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. That’s really why I like them. They’re all so different that if one company starts to struggle, the others should pick up the slack, although that’s not guaranteed. Schroders is one of the country’s largest and most respected asset managers. S&U provides asset finance, and 3i operates infrastructure investments around the world.As passive income investments, 3i is attractive as infrastructure assets tend to produce a steady income stream. S&U has a long track record of sensible underwriting of loans, which generates continued profit growth and a strong balance sheet. Meanwhile, Schroders trades on its reputation and investment performance. Of course, these UK shares all face unique risks as well. 3i’s income could plunge if governments decide to nationalise the company’s assets. A string of underperformance could hurt Schroders’ reputation and reduce investment flows. And S&U may suffer in a significant economic depression, which would cause a high level of loan losses. Despite these risks, I’d buy all of these UK shares for my portfolio of passive income investments right now. Income and growth Two other UK shares I’d buy for my passive income portfolio are Smurfit Kappa Group and Telecom Plus.Smurfit is one of the UK’s most significant paper and packaging producers. I think this business should benefit from the booming e-commerce market over the next few years.The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 4.5% and reported earnings growth of 13% last year. However, the main risk to the dividend is rising commodity prices, which could impact profit margins and reduce group income.Shares in utility provider Telecom Plus currently offer a dividend yield of 4.5%. Utilities tend to be reasonably defensive businesses because households will always need electricity, gas and phone connections.For example, the number of customers increased 0.8% for the financial year ending 31 March, despite the pandemic.Unfortunately, a reduction in the Ofgem price cap and higher regulatory costs overall hit profits. Pre-tax profit declined to £60.8m from £56m, due to these costs. This regulatory threat is the most considerable risk to group profits and further enforced price caps could hurt the company’s ability to pay a dividend. We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Nutrition: Importance of whey protein to training

first_imgDuring winter, make sure you are keeping to your training regime and ensuring your body has the right nutrients by eating a balanced diet; as we’ve mentioned, plenty of protein is essential for muscle recovery, but don’t skimp on vitamin-packed superfood fruit and veg like dark greens and berries, as well as snacks like almonds and brazil nuts for natural energy. Other key winter ingredients are legumes and pulses (like kidney beans) for extra protein and fibre, and invigorating herbs and spices such as ginger and cayenne pepper. Easier than eating a whole meal, and convenient for carrying to training, whey protein in powder form has significant benefits to a training diet. Protein is the essential building block of muscles, and when you’re training hard, your muscles are the components of your body doing the most work. Eating protein-rich foods or drinking a protein shake in the ‘golden hour’ after exercise helps replenish the body with essential protein used during exercise, therefore combating fatigue, muscle soreness, and improving the quality of your muscle.We’ve found that taking in whey protein through powder or shake form is one of the most effective for training purposes, and can be a lot more economical that purchasing other forms of low-fat protein (like organic chicken).  Buying in bulk, just like with most purchases, is useful too, and can be a lot easier on your wallet. If you’re just starting a regular, intense training regime, then buying whey protein in bulk will ensure that you’re fully equipped for the rugby season and won’t be missing out on vital training and recovery time. Tonga’s forwards practice their lineouts as the team prepares for their next 2011 Rugby World Cup match, in Wellington on September 27, 2011. AFP PHOTO / WILLIAM WEST (Photo credit should read WILLIAM WEST/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS DURING THE colder winter months it can feel like a struggle to train, but following a strict yet fulfilling training and diet regime can help you to retain your form, as well as increasing your overall fitness and abilities.Naturally, human beings are geared towards sunshine and warm weather; running around in the freezing cold is the antithesis of what our bodies want to instinctively do during poor weather and wintry conditions. We’re more likely to store fat in winter as a protection against the cold, as well as our body clocks being altered through darker mornings and evenings. All in all, winter can seem like a terrible time for the human body – but with a series of useful exercises and simple dietary changes, keeping your body fit and healthy for the rugby season is possible.During colder weather it’s even more important to get your muscles suitably prepared before a match or full training session, so ensure that you do plenty of prep exercises as well as a warm-down afterwards in order to help your body recover.Alongside a range of exercises to help your body train effectively through the colder winter months, having the right sort of diet is essential. While our bodies might be crying out for plenty of carbs and winter stews, one of the most essential components for a training diet is protein, which helps muscles recover quickly after exercise, and builds up muscle mass. One of the simplest ways to up your protein intake during winter is to use powdered forms of protein, such as whey protein, immediately after a training session.last_img read more

Kilsheimer named to Energy/Environmental Committee

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom I would have sincerely congratulated Mayor Kilsheimer but his appointment just translates into more travel with airfare, more $300 a night hotel rooms, more expensive meals, and more Florida Leaque of Cities fees for their events and more whatever…..also more significant time and energy as the article above states. We need our elected representatives to stay here in our own city, and put their significant time and efforts here in this city, and let the Florida Leaque of Cities people take care of their own business. A glorified lobbyist position……that is what it is! The mayor needs to slow down some, and quit trying to be everything to everybody, and catering to all these organizations, and national ones too! The ones that he thinks are so important, and have so much influence. The ones he speaks about having leadership roles in. The mayor cannot maintain this pace, because if he does, he will be in like a lion, and out like a lamb. And also at city hall, when the cat is away, the mice will play.

It talks about how some underground utilities screw up and accidentally bore through sewer pipes when boring other pipes through the underground and can cause blockages of the sewer and how dangerous it is to try to clear the blockages. It says plumbers and sewer companies beware! It states that other gas companies, electric, and telecommunications can screw up and cause these blockages of the sewer pipes when they bore their own right through the sewer pipes.

Reply Please enter your name here The pamphlet talks about how to determine a natural gas leak…..if you smell an odor of rotten eggs, even slight or momentary. If you hear an unusual hissing coming from the ground. It is probably leaking natural gas….if you see a fire or explosion near a gas pipeline, dirt or water blowing in the air, discolored vegetation around a gas pipeline, or notice standing water bubbling continuously.

Digby Ioane’s try and unbelievable celebration against the Bulls

first_imgSaturday Apr 16, 2011 Digby Ioane’s try and unbelievable celebration against the Bulls The Queensland Reds and the Bulls played a fantastic game of Super Rugby earlier, with the Reds winning it 39-30. Digby Ioane scored a nice try after a great chase, and had an even better celebration. The game was packed with skill, with Quade Cooper marshalling his troops well from ten, pulling out his usual bag of tricks, which included one inside flick in particular. The moment everyone will be talking about though was when winger Digby Ioane sprinted down the wing, easily beating Morne Steyn and Pierre Spies, to then dive on the ball and score. What followed was what is apparently known in break dancing circles as a spinning top/handspin/UFO/cricket/whirlwind, and probably a few other names.

No. 18 is a three-storey green residence located in the suburb of Sunway Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. The site slopes up gradually from the street towards the rear, meeting the foot of an abrupt reinforced incline that marks the start of the nature reserve behind. The brief called for a sustainable green home for a large family with generous open living spaces to entertain guests and private rooms customised to each family member’s requirements.Save this picture!© H.Lin HoThe house plan was conceived as a series of large halls based on 6m X 6m modules that are linked together both horizontally and vertically to create interlocking spaces. These are bound together by raw off-form concrete structure and earthy clay brick screen walls. The resulting three-storey box has spaces cut-into and cut-out of it to create high volume spaces, courtyards, nooks and hanging gardens.Save this picture!© H.Lin HoThe front arrival portico is supported on a formal series of large diameter sienna red steel columns. Beams that bear the roof garden above run across the slab in their exposed concrete form creating a visual landing strip upon arrival as the row of lights hidden behind each beam is unveiled file by file. A collage of concrete, brickwork and timber becomes an intentional feature wall by the main entrance. A solitary concrete wall with a rectangular cut-out, flanks the right side of the driveway forming a private lawn that fronts the open living area beyond.Save this picture!© H.Lin HoThe entry foyer and formal living space is a tall voluminous space with a large dragon ball light hanging in mid air. This is an open space designed to promote natural ventilation and lighting, and opens out unto the private front lawn. Even the bamboo garden beyond the kitchen is visible from the living hall – an openness that is visually and spatially liberating.Save this picture!PlanThe adjacent hall is the dining room that has sliding glass doors on both ends. One end opens into the poetic garden with a sculptural frangipani tree as a backdrop and a koi pond with fountain in the forefront, and the other end opens to a forest of saplings in a bed of pebble stones. The kitchen and service yard is located to the rear of the house.Save this picture!© H.Lin HoThe sculptural stair wraps around an off-form structural wall that takes one through to all the upper levels. The stairwell acts as a lantern contained by a double glazed enclosure and illuminated by the moon-like wall lights. The double volume informal family hall is located on the first floor overlooking into the fountain courtyard. A hanging roof garden with giant yucca trees sits on the roof of the front concrete portico. Hallways lead to the various bedrooms. The master bedroom sits on the second floor with a zen exercise and tea room. Shoji screens replace window blinds and tatami mats line the floor in the room that is connected to a Japanese garden terrace.Save this picture!© H.Lin HoThe western façade is protected by a wraparound metal box louver sun screen. The house is totally cross ventilated with minimal mechanical air conditioning. The large roof has 200mm thick 50kg/m3 rockwool and two layers of heat reflective foil in addition to a fully ventilated roof space that houses the rainwater harvesting tanks. The roof also houses an array of photo voltaic panels that generate up to 5 KW peak of electricity, solar hot water panels and wind turbines to ventilate the house interiors.Save this picture!© H.Lin HoOther green features are the use of low VOC paints, raw material finishes, water saving taps and sanitary wares, low energy light fittings and local native landscaping.

Suspended prison sentence and fine against journalists on L’Union

first_img News Follow the news on Gabon GabonAfrica December 31, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today voiced astonishment at a three-months suspended prison sentence handed down yesterday for libel to a journalist on the daily L’Union, Jonas Moulenda.The Libreville correctional court also fined him 500,000 FCFA (760 euros) while the editor and publisher, Albert Yangari, who had been summoned in the same case, was acquitted. The two had been accused by the former director-general of the Gabon Shippers’ Council (CGC) of publishing a libellous article about him. “I had confidence in the Gabonese justice system. During the hearing, the opposing side did not succeed in proving defamation. The prosecutor’s office did not uphold any charges against us. I was convinced the case would be dismissed. I am very disappointed at the court decision”, Moulenda told Reporters Without Borders.“I have been sentenced without grounds. I know I am a journalist who upsets people. I have already received several death threats which I have reported to the Gabonese authorities, who have remained silent. I am in danger”, said the journalist who added that he would lodge an appeal.“We hope that at his appeal hearing Jonas Moulenda will be discharged as was the publisher of L’Union”, Reporters Without Borders said.——————————————————————————————–25.03.2010 – Newspaper editor and reporter summoned three times over libel suitReporters Without Borders is baffled by the fact that Albert Yangari, the publisher and editor of the newspaper L’Union, and Jonas Moulenda, one of his reporters, have been summoned three times in connection with a libel suit brought by Alfred Nguia Banda, the former director-general of the Gabonese Shippers Council (CGC), which oversees maritime traffic in Gabon.Banda’s suit was prompted by an article by Moulenda in L’Union’s weekend edition on 28 November about the murder of Banda’s successor as CGC director-general, René Ziza, who had been stabbed to death on a street in the Libreville district of Saint-Benoît three days earlier. The article suggested that the police should consider the hypothesis that Ziza’s death was linked to an audit he ordered.“At no point was the plaintiff’s name mentioned in the article and the reporter just suggested a hypothesis,” Reporters Without Borders said. “There are absolutely no grounds for claiming that the article was libellous and we urge the judicial authorities to show some insight.”The press freedom organisation added: “The authorities should moreover provide Moulenda with protection and conduct a serious investigation into the alarming threats he has been getting, which he reported to the police.”Moulenda has voiced his “astonishment and concern” at the failure of the authorities to say anything or take any action in response to his complaint.Yangari and Moulenda have been summoned to three hearings. At the first, on 22 February, the lawsuit was dismissed. At the second, on 15 March, the plaintiff did not show up. The third hearing has been set for 29 March.
