I’d buy these 7%+ FTSE 100 dividend stocks for my ISA for May

first_img The FTSE 100 is shooting back towards 6,000 points on Monday. Lockdown measures in many parts of the world are being steadily lifted, also lifting investor sentiment. It’s hoped this end-of-month rally can be extended into May too, with more quarantine rollbacks anticipated.Share investors clearly need to remain on high alert though. Rising infection rates could stop the lockdowns being eased, or result in barriers being put back up. The possibility of a second wave of deadly infections later in 2020 should be front and centre in their minds.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…That said, there’s an abundance of Footsie shares I reckon are great buys for May. Their long-term profits outlooks remain robust despite the Covid-19 crisis. And, at current prices, I reckon they’re too cheap to miss.Make the connectionOne such blue-chip I’d happily load up on now, or in the coming days, is Vodafone Group (LSE: VOD). This is a FTSE 100 share that not only trades on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) reading of 0.5 times. It carries a monster 7.3% dividend yield too.Telecoms providers are a particularly attractive sector to buy into today. They aren’t immune to the economic implications of the coronavirus breakout. But the more defensive nature of their operations mean they’re in a stronger position than many to weather the storm. This is especially important, given the aforementioned uncertainty over future infection rates and the potential need for more lockdowns.Vodafone should be on the radar of income investors too, given the steady stream of dividend cuts across UK stock markets. The benefit of its recurring revenues, allied with the strength of its balance sheet, puts it in great shape to keep doling out mighty shareholder payouts, despite the current crisis.The FTSE 100 company remained on course to generate whopping free cash flow (excluding spectrum auction costs) of €5.4bn in the financial year to March, according to February’s most recent financials. Vodafone is a brilliant lifeboat in these uncertain times, in my opinion.Another FTSE 100 favouritePhoenix Group Holdings (LSE: PHNX) is another low-valued big-cap I’d buy today. A prospective price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8 times seriously undervalues the insurance giant’s long-term outlook. And a corresponding dividend yield of 8.3% is one of the biggest on the FTSE 100.Insurance is, like telecoms, one of the more robust stock sectors in times of social, economic and political chaos like these. But this isn’t the only characteristic Phoenix shares with Vodafone. A critical quality for dividend chasers, Phoenix is also a formidable generator of cash. In 2019, cash generation came in at a whopping £707m, beating a goal of £600m-£700m.Phoenix’s aim is to grow cash generation up to a possible £900m in 2020 too. But don’t think of the business as a great buy for the short-to-medium term. Its imminent £3.2bn acquisition of ReAssure will create the country’s biggest life insurance and pension provider with the clout to pursue an exciting growth path.

La decisión no significa el fin de la controversia. Cuando pasen las Navidades y el Año Nuevo se repetirá el mismo sainete para aprobar el nuevo presupuesto.La prensa bogotana ha informado que dos sacerdotes católico romanos fueron asesinados en el Municipio de Roldanillo, Valle del Cauca, con la intención de robarles. Las víctimas son Bernardo Echeverry de 62 años y Héctor Fabio Cabrera de 35. El arzobispo de Cali, Darío de Jesús Monsalve, dijo que estaba “absolutamente consternado” por el doble asesinato y pidió a las autoridades hacer una investigación exhaustiva. “Es triste que en nuestro país la vida humana no valga nada”, añadió.El Servicio Bautista de Prensa informa que hay preocupación por la disminución de bautismos en las iglesias bautistas. En una reunión celebrada en Nashville se informó que en el 2012 hubo una caída de 5.52 por ciento de los bautismos en las iglesias del sur de Estados Unidos. Esta es la primera vez desde 1948 que el número de bautismos es inferior a 315,000.Varias iglesias en Estados Unidos han recolectado instrumentos musicales usados y los han puesto a buen uso en Cuba. “Instrumentos polvorientos y abandonados se han convertido en medios de esperanza y evangelización en Cuba”, dijo uno de los líderes del proyecto.Una reciente encuesta realizada por el Instituto de Investigación de la Religión revela que el sistema económico de Estados Unidos favorece a los ricos, que trabajar duro y con determinación no garantiza el éxito de la mayoría de la población actual, que el gobierno debería hacer más para reducir la diferencia entre ricos y pobres.

En Qatar hay miles de personas que han venido a trabajar en la industria petrolera.Billy Graham, el predicador de 95 años y que ha tenido fama internacional por sus campañas evangelísticas en más de 184 países del mundo, ha sorprendido a muchos con su predicción de que la presente inmoralidad en el mundo es señal que “el retorno de Cristo está cerca”.

Lake Residence / Architekton

first_imgArchDaily Text description provided by the architects. The 21st century ecologically sensitive Lake residence designed by Architekton is sympathetic to its 20th Century neighbors and is a mix of reverence and daring. The 3,500 sf home was specifically designed for a family of four (and two beagles and a cat) on an 8,200 sf lot in the first lake community in Arizona. The new home was built on the last vacant lot in the 30-year-old Lakes Neighborhood in Tempe Arizona. The site was chosen for its’ views, north-south orientation, quality of schools and close proximity the family’s places of work. The goal was to create a livable, sustainable contemporary home, which could evolve over the family’s lifetime.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40WindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalWoodEGGERLaminatesA modest budget and small site led to a very efficient stacked rectangular plan that negotiated the site’s 16’ differential between the street and lake. A hyper-programmed masonry “container” defines a courtyard at street level and slips through the house and dramatically cantilevers towards the lake. The resulting design yields a private low-scaled presence from the street side and a dramatic composition to the neighborhood lake, which becomes the actual “front yard.” Save this picture!When weather inspires, the home’s main living space’s north and south large sliding glass walls open for true indoor/outdoor human comfort and enjoyment of the inherent evaporative cooling from the adjacent lake and pool. From the street, the signature element is the sliding translucent garage door that illuminates the driveway at night and garage within during the day. Save this picture!Ground Level Plan & Site PlanThe desire for as much exterior yard on a relatively small lot (approximately 65’ x 125’) led to an efficient stacking of two levels with a footprint of approximately 25’ x 55’. The exception to the stacking is a ground face c.m.u. clad “container” which is a tandem four car garage on the south which slips through the envelope becoming kitchen, utility room and master bath and dramatically cantilevers to the north as the master bedroom. Other “containers” clad in various materials such as bamboo and translucent glass, house bedrooms, bathrooms and utility functions. Juxtaposed to the programmed “containers” are flexible spaces that can adapt over time or for special events. Save this picture!Unifying the composition is a wrapping envelope that emerges from the ground and ends as an indirect light fixture illuminating the great room and entry. This wrapper is opaque on the east and west and provides a deep roof overhang on the south. The form is three feet thick which allows for structure, storage and utilities. Save this picture!The Lake Residence takes advantage of the north-south orientation with a protective “wrapper” that is opaque on the east and west elevations and provides deep solar shading on the south. When weather allows, the home’s main living space incorporates large sliding glass walls on both the north and south sides allowing for true indoor-outdoor living and taking advantage of the inherent evaporative cooling from the adjacent lake to the north and pool on the south. Landscaping is strategically placed to provide shade, block views and create additional cooling through transpiration adjacent to the house. Daylight is optimized throughout the house to minimize the need of electric lighting. Save this picture!Flexibility was integrated into the house layout and construction to eliminate the need for external expansion. The spaces were constructed with clear spans and utility cores similar to traditional loft spaces, allowing for reconfiguration as needed over time. Minimizing corridors, and using a series of concealed sliding doors that create privacy or circulation depending on family needs, optimize space.Project gallerySee allShow lessMotopia: A New Age of Modular Construction / USC School of ArchitectureArticlesAquaPark in the Swiss Alps / Personeni Raffaele Schärer ArchitectsArticles Share Projects CopyHouses•Tempe, United States Architects: Architekton Year Completion year of this architecture project Lake Residence / Architekton Save this picture!+ 16 Share Lake Residence / ArchitektonSave this projectSaveLake Residence / Architekton ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2008 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  United States Houses “COPY” “COPY” CopyAbout this officeArchitektonOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTempeHousesUnited StatesPublished on September 06, 2011Cite: “Lake Residence / Architekton” 06 Sep 2011.

Court acquits fifth journalist who criticised conference ban

first_imgNews Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Organisation RSF_en News Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders today hailed an Istanbul court’s decision yesterday to acquit Murat Belge, a columnist with the daily Radikal, of criticising a judicial ban on a conference about the Armenian genocide, for which he had faced a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.“Belge’s acquittal is good news for press freedom in Turkey,” the organisation said. “The judges recognised that his criticism of the judicial authorities was not a crime. As a result, he has avoided an extremely severe sentence that would have been a disgrace.”The court dismissed all the charges against Belge, who criticised the ban in two articles in September 2005. Similar charges against four other journalists were dropped in April._____________________________________________________________11 April 2006Court drops charges against four journalists but a fifth still faces trial Reporters Without Borders hailed today’s decision by an Istanbul court to drop charges against four journalists – Ismet Berkan, Erol Katircioglu and Haluk Sahin of the daily Radikal and Hasan Cemal of Milliyet – for criticising a judicial order. But it deplored the court’s decision to proceed with the trial of Radikal columnist Murat Belge, who faces a sentence of between six months and 10 years in prison on the same charge.“We are relieved to learn that the charges have been dismissed against four journalists who faced the possibility of imprisonment for what they had written,” the press freedom organisation said. “We issued a statement on 8 February calling for the withdrawal of the charges, and we reiterate this appeal now on behalf of the Radical columnist, who could still get a long jail term.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We hope the authorities will in future resist these growing prosecutions against journalists and freedom of expression activists.”——8 February 2006Call for charges against five columnists to be droppedReporters Without Borders has called for charges to be dropped against five columnists working for Radikal and Milliyet, two of Turkey’s most respected dailies.The case against Ismet Berkan, Murat Belge, Erol Katircioglu, Haluk Sahin and Hasan Cemal opened on 7 February and they face up to ten years in prison for daring to criticise a judicial decision and expressing opinions on the Armenian question – a taboo subject in Turkey.They have been accused of insulting the judicial authorities under Article 301 of the criminal code and of interfering with the judicial process under Article 288.Reporters Without Borders attended the opening of the trial, which turned into a near fiasco after one of the plaintiffs, Hanefi Aktas, a nationalist lawyer and member of a jurists’ organisation, threatened the court and accused it of partiality and of backing European deputies, strongly opposed to the trial.Security forces had to intervene to remove him, after which order was restored in court. The hearing lasted more than four hours because of these incidents and a raft of defence calls for the case to be withdrawn.“This trial is a disgrace for press freedom and unworthy of a democratic state,” said Reporters Without Borders. “Turkey cannot sentence journalists to prison terms because they comment in their columns on judicial decisions.”“The charges are inadmissible and we urge the judicial authorities to withdraw this case against these five journalists on a technicality. We express our support for these columnists and we salute their courage and back their call for an acquittal”, said the organisation.Members of the ultra-nationalist jurists’ organisation which sued the journalists did not meet the deadline since they lodged their complaints more than two months after the articles appeared. Under this rule, only the case against journalist Murat Belge could be allowed to proceed.Moreover, under Article 301, neither an individual nor a group can become civil parties because this is the role of the state and its institutions. The jurists’ organisation cannot therefore sue the five columnists on this basis.The complaints under Article 288 are also inadmissible because the journalists only criticised a judicial decision made in September, therefore it is incorrect to accuse them of influencing the judicial process since judgement had already been given.The next hearing was fixed, amidst much confusion, for 11 April.

Work starts on new facility at Limerick children’s respite centre

first_imgPrint Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash WhatsApp Twitter Advertisement Email St Gabriel’s Centre in DooradoyleWORK is underway on a €2.5 million purpose built six-bedroom facility at St Gabriel’s School and Centre in Dooradoyle to meet the individual respite needs of children with multiple disabilities, who have associated complex medical conditions.Fine Gael TD Michael Noonan last week turned the sod on the site, which was purchased with funds raised locally. €1 million was received from the JP McManus Golf Pro Am which made it initially possible to undertake the project and St Gabriel’s have now started a campaign to secure the remaining €1m for the project.There are at present more than 150 children in the Mid-West region who are dependent on technology for their care, such as those who require mechanical ventilation or feeding tubes. These children are on occasion admitted to an acute hospital setting due to the lack of an appropriate centre based respite service being available to them.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The respite house will be fitted out to the highest of standards. Much thought has been given to the design in order that it is as accessible, fun and light filled as possible. It will have six adapted en-suite bedrooms, overhead hoists for ease of care, piped suction and oxygen throughout, with well-equipped clinical/nursing spaces,” St Gabriel’s chief executive Máire O’Leary said.“There will also be a playroom and activities area, kitchen and dining room, sensory bathroom, garden and outdoor access to Mungret Park and playground. Children and their families who experience the need for this level of medical care deserve the best,” he said.St. Gabriel’s provides a range of clinical therapies and interventions for up to 500 children and teens with disabilities. St. Gabriel’s school is adjacent to St. Gabriel’s Therapy centre and provides primary and post primary education to 69 pupils with very special needs.More health news here TAGSchief executivechildrenDooradoyleJP McManus Golf Pro AmlimerickMáire O’LearyrespiteSt Gabriel’stherapy centre NewsHealthWork starts on new facility at Limerick children’s respite centreBy Editor – December 17, 2017 3270 Facebookcenter_img Previous articleWin cinema ticketsNext articleLimerick councillor calls for special meeting on Opera Centre site Editor Linkedin Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more
