Belong to Gen Z? Why I’d invest £500 in the FTSE 100 in January

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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 2020s is the decade when the investing choices of Gen Z, the demographic group born from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s, will be big news. Throughout these 10 years, they’ll enter young adulthood and start hitting life milestonesThis weekend, I’d like to encourage Gen Zers to contemplate their retirement, which may be in 40 years or more. Difficult, I know, but do try.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…What money may mean to Gen ZGen Z grew up in the wake of the recession of 2008/09. Many of them learnt about the world of money as their parents might have coped with difficult financial issues.As they get ready to enter the workforce, they may have first-hand knowledge of the prospect of crippling student debt, the difficulty of finding permanent, well-paying jobs, and property prices that may seem out of reach.Gen Zers are also possibly observing their elders who realise that the State Pension will likely not be enough to ensure a comfortable retirement (it currently stands at £8,767 per year). Yet paying close attention to several investing decisions early on could mean retiring a millionaire versus having financial worries in older age. In 2020, I hope that you’ll focus on two key aspects of your personal finances: saving of course, but importantly too, investing.Why investing now is crucialLet’s say you’re 25 and have managed to save £500 by December 2019 that you are now going to invest in FTSE 100 shares. And your 2020 resolution is to regularly invest another £3,600 per year (deposited at the end of the investing year) for 40 years. If you get an 8% annual return, then you’ll have £943,465 at the end of 40 years.On the other hand, if you wait to start investing until you are 30, you will have £627,733 after 35 years. And if you wait another five years until you reach 35, at the end of 30 years, your account balance will only be £412,850, or less than half of what you could have had by investing a decade earlier.The difference is due to the power of compound interest. This has a snowball effect on personal savings. As time goes on, interest leads to more money, over and over again. The Foolish takeawayAt The Motley Fool, my colleagues provide detailed coverage of share investing and retirement planning. They highlight that over time, the broader stock market returns about 7% to 9% annually on average. If you are new to the world of investing, then you could start with buying into a FTSE 100 tracker fund.In 2020, the FTSE 100 is projected to return a dividend yield of about 4.5%. Its robust yield has helped support the index throughout the uncertainty caused by Brexit, the general election as well as global trade wars. Any capital gains delivered by the index would be an added bonus on top of the dividend. Younger investors could possibly benefit from diversifying some of their holdings into tech shares too. A fund to consider could be the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, which is heavily invested in tech shares such as Amazon in the US and Alibaba in China.I also expect ESG (which stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing to become a growing trend among Gen Zers. My colleague Kirsteen Mackay has identified several funds with an ESG theme, including BlackRock BGF Nutrition Fund, Impax Environmental Markets Trust and the ASI UK Responsible Equity Fund.

Luke McAlister creates two Gael Fickou tries with superb little chips

first_imgThursday May 12, 2016 Luke McAlister creates two Gael Fickou tries with superb little chips Toulouse eased past Agen with a commanding 52-19 victory on Sunday, helping them into the top six of the Top 14. While there were a number of good tries, flyhalf Luke McAlister showed two superb touches of class with neatly placed kicks for French centre Gael Fickou.Starting early with a try by scrumhalf Sebastien Bezy, Toulouse went on to score a total of five first half tries, with Vincent Clerc, Louis Picamoles and Fickou also scoring.Bezy added four conversions, before another three tries in the second half, as Gillian Galan scored twice and Corey Flynn also crossed as they racked up fifty.Agen scored some consolation points through tries by Johann Sadie, Tamaz Mchelidze and Leka Tagotago, but Toulouse were never in any danger of being threatened.Former All Black McAlister produced two stunning pieces of play, first with the neat kick over the defence with the outside of his boot, then a near carbon copy, except that time it was a sweet dink with the inside of the foot.On both occassions Fickou got in perfect position to stroll over after the McAlister magic. Top skills and when executed well, a good way to get behind that defensive line.You can watch the tries below and then below that we have full match highlights, and if you’d like to watch replays of both the tries, you can see also watch those on the second page here.Match Highlights (3:48):credit: top 14 – officiel/rugby vids Fickou Try 1:Fickou Try 2:ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The pilgrim’s Ibiza is not such much a space for the new social foundations as a place where it is possible to experience rationality, a linear optimization of the functions and morals of the middle working class, as the same time as the erotics of desire, erratic drifting and daily recreational experimentation. That is the Ibiza which is generally been experienced by the ‘new settlers’ on the island since 1967; and which has been made possible with the help of their residential constructions. Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe House in Never Never Land explores the role played by architecture, as a practice of technological restitution of social relations, in assembling spheres of intimacy together with those of group actions and other in which the images of desire are produced. It explores the way that the design of the material systems used as a basis for every day experience can help us allow this to happen in different areas; in the island’s environmental richness; in the quality standards of European cities; in the hedonistic tradition of Santa Monica’s suburban swimming pools; in the ‘extreme happiness’ related to electronic music and synthetic drug consumption; in nudism and naturism; in fleeting romance; in spontaneous sunset parties, in the fluctuations in the property market or in retirement plan. Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThis operation starts with a 1300m2 sloping allotment, entered at the top from a small roadway. In the Cala Vadella valley, there is a picturesque natural harbour where pleasure craft tie up in search of fragments of Ibiza as it was before the tourist boom. From the ground on this hillside with a 20% average slope and a north-west aspect, one can see the sun set across a landscape with few buildings and continuous vegetation cover, the habitat for respectable diversity of animal life and suitable base for migrations. The house is designed as a system of materials mediators that allow the commissioner’s day-to-day Activities t be installed in this environmental setting, in his spheres of desire (and his everyday ‘perforation’) and future secure scenarios. Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThis proposal imposes the need to preserve the qualitative continuities of the valley’s natural base in the building to the grates possible degree. Primarily: 1. – The continuity of the arboreal mass (which contains animal habitats and migration corridors, playing primary role in the establishment of the atmospheric conditions that permit the life forms found in the association with the trees; also contributing to the mechanical reinforcement of the understorey). 2. – The continuity of the run-off and the permeability of the soil. 3. – The continuity of the water system, avoiding any sort of input to the understorey via irrigation for filtering in order to hinder the potential emergence of invasive species. 4. – The maintenance of the cycles of matter (the substrate is fees of transformations in order to allow the organic matter to rot and close the cycle. Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe design feeds in the continuities by means of four decisions: A.- Minimizing tree and shrub removal or pruning an the allotment. The design work began with Phase 0, consisting of the close scrutiny and mapping of every tree and shrub. The geometries of the project were then adapted correspondingly and the construction was inscribed in the space available between the trees, which thus flow through the building interiors. B.- Raising more than 80% of the building mass on piles to avoid any sort of disturbance to the ground ( paving, crops, watering or other input) which might eventually alter its properties, the way it works or the sort of association that the plant and animal communities now have with the soil. C.- Clustering all the waste filtering and treating equipment, as well as the water tank, into a compact reinforced concrete vessel, preventing them from acting as ‘requalifying’ agents in the valley. D.- Compensating for the amount of substrate affected by the foundations and this compact vessel by including an equivalent mass of substrate in various parts of the skin around the building, mixed with water-retaining gelatine to produce the moisture of the original soil in shallower conditions. After an adaptation period, this mass of substrate, incorporated into the building, will became the habitat for a mass of plants and animals that will match the area removed on account of the construction work. Save this picture!PlanThe house should allow states of interpersonal cohabitation and association to emerge, in which what is feasible interacts with what is desired. To manage this goal, a combination of two strategies was chosen after weighing up for several options. 1.- Problem infrastructure: instead of defining the house as the spatial crystallization of existing cohabitation models, we decided to generate a rarefied, controversial area in a building which would nevertheless be highly changeable; a space that is polarized by two practically identical rooms with a multi-purpose living room between them. The usual spatial organization of a hierarchical microstate (e.g., 1.-master bedroom, 2.-second bedroom, 3.- guest room), is replaced with a warped or controversial formula, witch, on its own, cannot successfully provide a direct manifestation of a canonical cohabitation model in the form of spatial organisation. So on one hand, constructive cooperation on the translation work by the users is necessary, while at the same time, any previous microsocial organization will be challenged by the experimental resolution process. It would be challenged in the sense that a door remains open to the input of data from the world of desire. 2.- Living amongst alternatives: the buildings have also been designed as a parliament of architectural devise that have proved to be effective as promoters, involker, representatives or testimonies of desirable reference ordinarinesses. Save this picture!SectionThe swimming pool as a device for making a connection with the horizon. It is also a phenomenological layers which encourage dilettante contemplation. Both are contained in the suburban revision of the Californian surf culture. The plane raised off the ground, present in the imaginarium linked to J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, is an escape from the regular planning of education and unitary organisation of our work time; an intermesh of human and plant structures, an ever-present theme in naturist narratives and all sort of derivative cultural products. The fee plan used as a model which optimises the programmatic availability of space. The outdoor room as a laboratory for life without air conditioning, present in most idealizations of what is known as the “Mediterranean lifestyle”. The master bedroom for bedins for peace, for example. The house is equipped to be able to ‘sleep wherever you happen to close your eyes’, or the house as a friendly landscape. Café del Mar, or sunset chill-out, space for undisputed interhumanization. The shower as a promise of furtive romances, like the numerous advertisements and descriptive examples generated by the audiovisual porn product industry. The assembly-kitchen, ‘the party starts with a group of cooking experience’. The speaker-room taken from the dance club tradition, a sound space built as an echo box. And, amongst many other ideas, the cabin taken from ‘shutting out the world’, like the one owned by Heidi’s grandfather in the Austrian Alps. Hence our decision to call it House in Never Land. Because that is also the ground that the house has been built on.Project gallerySee allShow lessRichard Rogers wins Stirling Prize for Maggie’s CentreArticlesNamba Parks / The Jerde PartnershipArticles Share Spain Houses 2007 Never Never Land House / Andres Jaque ArquitectosSave this projectSaveNever Never Land House / Andres Jaque Arquitectos Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/38196/never-never-land-house-andres-jaque-arquitectos Clipboardlast_img read more

PA House is a private house for a small and new settled family. There are 3 bedrooms including one master bedroom and two bedrooms reserving for guest and their child in the future. Not only the bedrooms but there are also 2 more main requirements from the owner which are a great common area for living and dining, where the owners always get together with their friends as the new generation’s lifestyle does, and the privacy, the owner’s most important issue, from the unpleasant surroundings. While the house needs privacy, it still has to be roomy and clear in the same time.Save this picture!© Ketsiree WongwanSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!© Ketsiree WongwanTherefore, the concept design begins with studying the surrounding buildings about their height to outside-in and inside-out view of the house, to fit each function to the site appropriately. In the other hand, the surrounding buildings are not only the conditions but also the assistance to help the architects plan the layout and zoning of this house. In order to achieve such requirements, the wall planes are created for screening out the outside-in view, opening the inside-out view and creating an internal space in the same time. The main area of the house is the common area where owners can have a dinner and take 180 degree view of the green area through the swimming pool. Each wall plane is intentionally designed to float and locate around the house to define the house’s view and shade out the sunlight getting into the area simultaneously.Save this picture!© Ketsiree WongwanProject gallerySee allShow lessArimon House / García-Durán & EquipoSelected ProjectsSpace of Engraving Lights / J.R ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Area:  530 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/892454/pa-house-idin-architects Clipboard Save this picture!© Ketsiree Wongwan+ 42Curated by Diego Hernández Share Projects CopyHouses•Thailand ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/892454/pa-house-idin-architects Clipboard 2017 Photographs “COPY” “COPY” CopyAbout this officeIDIN ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThailandPublished on April 17, 2018Cite: “PA House / IDIN Architects” 17 Apr 2018.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Organisations working to fight extremism in their communities are invited to bid for support from the Home Office’s new Building a Stronger Britain Together programme.The four-year programme launched in September as part of the Government’s counter-extremism strategy, which was published last year.Groups can apply online for in-kind support up to a value of £75,000, or grant funding up to £50,000. In-kind support could include social media training, help setting up a website or advice on media activity. Grant funding will be given for clearly defined proposals, with the example given of a project to help 15-to-18 year olds find full-time employment after leaving school in an area where far right groups are attempting to recruit vulnerable young adults.The Home Office will issue a new call for bids for each new financial year so that the funding has impact across all four years, and to make sure that support is given to groups doing the most relevant and innovative work.Sarah Newton, Minister for Vulnerability, Safeguarding and Countering Extremism, said:“Across the country organisations and individuals are standing up to extremism and the harm it causes. As we work to build a country that works for everyone, we are determined to support them and, by empowering mainstream voices, drown out those who seek to divide us.”Further information about applying for support is here: www.gov.uk/guidance/building-a-stronger-britain-together.

Belarus website editor slapped with heavy fine

The fine is just one more attempt to intimidate the few remaining independent media outlets in Belarus, RSF said.Convicted of “negligence” for allegedly letting her staff use the dispatches of the state-owned news agency BelTA without a subscription, Zolatava was ordered to pay a fine of 7,650 rubles and court costs of 6,000 rubles, or a total of more than 5,600 euros – the equivalent of the average annual salary in Belarus.Zolatava and a dozen other journalists were held for several days after raids on Tut.by and the independent news agency BelaPAN last August, when the pro-government media subjected both media outlets to an intense smear campaign. Zolatava, who had faced a possible five-year jail term, was the only one to be tried on criminal charges. Her colleagues were ordered to pay damages to BelTA without being tried.“This heavy fine constitutes the latest act of intimidation against the last independent media outlets in Belarus,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The way the authorities persisted with this case, which was out of all proportion from the outset, shows their determination to undermine the state media’s rivals. It is high time the international community, especially the European Union, took steps to end the escalating crackdown in Belarus.”During the trial, the defence insisted that Tut.by’s articles were systematically posted after BelTA’s dispatches had been published – a quarter of an hour after their publication for subscribers.Several journalists said they had been pressured to provide testimony for the prosecution. The IP addresses used to access the BelTA website are shared not only by Tut.by’s journalists but by all visitors to Tut.by’s art gallery. Zolatava and her colleagues learned in the course of this case that their phones had been tapped, in violation of the confidentiality of their sources. Zolatava’s trial came amid efforts by the Belarusian authorities to tighten their grip on the media. They include a draconian new media law, blocking of leading news sites and an unprecedented wave of fines against independent journalists. Belarus is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.
