Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Buying dividend stocks to make a passive income can be a worthwhile move. It may allow an investor to generate significantly higher returns than those available from other income-producing assets.However, shares are much riskier than assets such as bonds. There’s always scope to lose money on them over any time period. Therefore, by avoiding these three common mistakes, it may be possible to reduce risks, improve returns and enjoy a growing income stream over the long run.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…Accessing an affordable passive incomeA common mistake made by passive income investors is failing to check the reliability of a company’s dividend. It’s all too easy to become focused on yields and how much a dividend could potentially grow by in future. As such, analysing a company’s dividend in terms of its affordability can easily be overlooked. Especially during a bull market when many investors are upbeat about the future prospects for the stock market.Assessing a company’s dividend affordability can be undertaken by comparing its shareholder payouts to cash flow or net profit. This provides guidance on how many times it was able to pay its dividend. A figure of less than one is clearly a red flag. That means a company’s profits were insufficient to make dividend payouts. However, investors may wish to demand a figure of more than one at the present time due to the uncertain economic outlook.Building a concentrated portfolioObtaining a passive income from shares is a risky pursuit. Any company can experience tough operating conditions at any time. This can compromise its capacity to pay a dividend.Therefore, it’s important to avoid building a concentrated portfolio of stocks. Many investors hold too few companies in their portfolios because they don’t wish to dilute their overall yield by purchasing businesses with lower yields. However, this can be a dangerous move. It means they’re reliant on a relatively small number of companies through which to generate an income over the long run.Forgetting about everything elseIt is easy to have tunnel vision when seeking to make a passive income from dividend shares. In other words, investors sometimes forget about everything other than a company’s income prospects. For example, they may fail to check its valuation, the strength of its balance sheet, or a variety of other factors that can matter to its future performance.Of course, dividends are likely to be most important to an income-seeking investor when buying dividend shares. However, it’s imperative to check all aspects of a business in order to build an accurate picture of its strengths and weaknesses. Through undertaking this process, it may be possible to obtain a higher income stream that’s more resilient in the coming years. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Una vez más se juntan para sellar la tumba y asegurarse de que no se propague ni siquiera un rumor de su resurrección. Y esto es lo que algunos de ellos dicen:Por lo tanto, mandé que se selle el sepulcro hasta el tercer día. No sea que vengan sus discípulos se roben el cuerpo y le digan al pueblo que él ha resucitado de entre los muertos. Y este último engaño sería peor que el primero.Es fácil pasar por alto, y algunas veces cómodo olvidar, que Jesús fue ejecutado, que Jesús fue crucificado por una alianza impía de la religión, la política y los mezquinos intereses económicos.La política encarnada en Poncio Pilato, gobernador del Imperio Romano, y, como tal, representante de ese imperio y de todo su poder.El rey Herodes, que escuchó a Jesús en uno de sus juicios, representante de los herodianos y de los mezquinos intereses económicos de ese tiempo.El Sumo Sacerdote representante de la aristocracia religiosa que tenía un interés particular en mantener el statu quo.Estos tres poderes —económico, religioso y político— se juntaron para crucificar a quien predicó el amor al Señor tu Dios, el amor al prójimo y que vivió acorde a esas enseñanzas.La verdad es que el mensaje de Jesús era perturbador para el mundo de entonces al igual que lo es ahora. Y sin embargo ese mismo mensaje es la única fuente de esperanza en la vida para el camino de la cruz, el camino para vivir una vida libre de egoísmos, el camino para vivir una vida de sacrificio que busca el bien y bienestar de los demás, [el camino] libre del enfoque egoísta de los intereses propios. El camino de la cruz es el camino del amor. Esa es la naturaleza del amor. Y esa senda es la única esperanza para toda la familia humana.La verdad es que el camino de Jesús era una amenaza para el mundo como era y al mismo tiempo representa la esperanza de la manera en que el mundo puede y debe ser.Pero en ese tercer día después de la crucifixión, cuando por el poder titánico de Dios, por el poder del amor de Dios, Jesús resucitó de entre los muertos, Dios envió un mensaje y declaró que la muerte no tiene la última palabra. El odio no tiene la última palabra. La violencia no tiene la última palabra. La intolerancia no tiene la última palabra. El pecado y el mal no tienen la última palabra. La última palabra la tiene Dios y Dios es amor.En nuestra peregrinación pasamos dos días en Jordania. En Amán en Jordania pudimos pasar algún tiempo sagrado y bendito, pero también doloroso con los cristianos iraquíes. Estos cristianos, muchos de los cuales son anglicanos, han tenido que huir de su país, Irak por causa de la guerra, la violencia, el odio y la profanación. Han renunciado a todo por no renunciar a su fe en Jesucristo. Y allá en Jordania con la ayuda de la Iglesia Anglicana y de muchas otras agencias de socorro, están por lo menos a salvo y esperan encontrar hogares seguros y permanentes en otros países.Durante nuestras conversaciones, y al escucharlos, en un cierto momento, encontré que estaba citando un himno, una canción que muchas personas han escuchado en Pascua, al menos en nuestro país. Y no esperé que contestaran. Ustedes probablemente saben cómo va, dice “porque él vive”, refiriéndose a Jesús y a su resurrección, “porque él vive puedo enfrentar el mañana” Cuando yo cité esa canción, aquellos que han perdido sus hogares, las personas que lo han perdido todo excepto sus vidas, los que han perdido sus seres queridos, respondieron a las palabras de esa canción. Cuando yo dije “Porque él vive puedo enfrentar el mañana”, cuando yo dije Jesús está vivo, que se ha levantado de entre los muertos, los vi alzar sus rostros y responder con las palabras amén y aleluya.Mis hermanos y hermanas, el mal no pudo detenerlo. La muerte no pudo detenerlo. La violencia no pudo detenerlo. Porque el amor de Dios, el corazón de Dios, la realidad de Dios es más fuerte que cualquier otra cosa. Y Jesús se levantó de entre los muertos en esa primera mañana de resurrección.Dios les ama. Dios les bendiga Y que esta estación de Pascua sea el primer día del resto de nuestras vidas.Amén.El Ilustrísimo Michael B.

The construction site is in the corner of an exclusive residential quarter where has a panoramic view of Hiroshima city. It is a renovation project for a 20 years old house to get remodeled into an RC structure luxury house with 2 above-ground floors and 1 basement. The construction work is implemented in tow stages. This time was the first stage to renovate a half of the total floor area of 495㎡ with the ground floor and the basement floor. In consideration of a structural balance, the building frames had to be remained.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe planning solution of what it could be done on that basis was found to think it to be skeleton. A main subject of this plan was how to work out negative elements such as low beams, a popped out passageway, different height of ceilings and so on. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoWe titled the problem “Overhead Landscape” and tried it transferring into elements that induce a spatial phenomenon. Various colors, mirrors and lightings are installed so as to put unevenness parts to good use. Low beams gently divide spaces, a wrapped box the connecting passageway on the upper floor hided resonates with light, and a mirror placed in a hollow ceiling creates unlimited depth of space. A former plan separated into small spaces turned to a big connected space. Clear glasses and walls are divided by such as fringe curtains, etc. and it produces space continuity. To make dark space bright, using high reflection materials bring light to the inner of space. With all those measures, a phenomenon caused by “Overhead Landscape” projects on a floor screen. In result, it is uniformity space created as the finishing touch, but also heterogeneous space is thrown on the screen.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThis time’s construction work unifies with other public territory. In day times, time flows slowly with silence. At nightfall, floated night views bellow people’s eyes produce tense sense in interior space. We always aim at creating space, which stimulates sense of residents and guests. A purpose of use changes by a resident and at the same time the space changes. We are now proceeding the second stage plan of the private sections with infusing new breath into architecture and also aspiring to produce architecture beyond time.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSolar Decathlon 2013: Stevens Institute of Technology Places Second in Architecture,…Selected ProjectsHow Much Do Architects Earn Around the World?Architecture News Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/436095/beam-house-bunzo-ogawa Clipboard Year: Japan Architects: Future Studio Area Area of this architecture project Beam House / Future StudioSave this projectSaveBeam House / Future Studio Year: ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeFuture StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHiroshimaBunzo OgawaHousesJapanPublished on October 18, 2013Cite: “Beam House / Future Studio” 18 Oct 2013.

In 2010 a young couple with two children dreamed of building their own house, and for that, they enrolled in the Brazilian Programme, Minha Casa Minha Vida, (My house, My life). They wanted to live near their parents and not far from the city centre.Save this picture!© Alexandre PrassFurthermore, they wanted to help actively in the house design process and not only have a common standard ready-made house, as the available houses of the programme are most of the time. The solution was to get financial assistance. However, their income only allowed a maximum of R$ 80.000,00, which should include the purchase of the land and the construction price. A very challenging task.Save this picture!© Alexandre PrassAfter choosing the site, the big challenge was to overcome the limitations of the Brazilian Programme, Minha Casa Minha Vida, and so, provide the opportunity of living in a house with contemporary architectural concepts with its functional, technical and aesthetic qualities. The low amount of money available to build the house demanded dexterity to optimise the interior spaces and for choosing building materials and construction techniques.Save this picture!Floor PlanFunctionally, the house is developed along a generous concrete gutter, raised 2.10m above the floor and located in the central axis of the house. It connects all the rooms of the house. This strategy is intended to: Simplify the construction by structuring all the different roofs with a view to collecting the rain water. Eliminate the necessity of interior beams above the doors, because all of them are located under the gutter. Facilitate the future enlargement process of the house as all future rooms can be easily built along the concrete gutter. Save this picture!© Alexandre PrassThe fact that the clients would prefer an inward facing house with no openings to the street demanded the design process to develop itself around the gardens, which not only are part of all the activities that might happen in the house, but also give the house the sense of amplified spaces, even being small ones. The rooms, as large and well integrated as possible, change the perception of isolated functions, transforming them into a set of great living spaces.Save this picture!© Alexandre PrassThe use of low cost and easily available materials, combined with local labour and creative ways of arrangements and finishing, made it possible to achieve some sofisticated design results. The extensive work involved with the detailing of the project made it possible to eliminate some unnecessary costs and to achieve satisfying results through custom solutions executed at the site.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionIn the pictures we can observe the house already in occupation by the residents, with their furniture and the stamp of their personality. At the back of the house, some provisory and necessary contributions to their daily life have already appeared. Using the reserved space, the residents added a roof to the laundry as well a wood made shelter for the car.Save this picture!© Alexandre PrassThe Brazilian Programme, Minha Casa Minha Vida, which offers private financial initiative to buy the land and build the house, ends up limiting the possibilities of invention during the design process because of the conditioning and legal demands. We, therefore, consider that this low cost urban house is distinguished by the quality of its created spaces. Examples such as this one can disseminate a range of possibilities to create low cost architecture without being obliged to have recourse to standard solutions.Save this picture!© Alexandre PrassProject gallerySee allShow lessThis App Lets You Manipulate BIG’s Serpentine Pavilion on Your iPad ScreenArchitecture NewsBarack Obama Presidential Center Selects Tod Williams Billie Tsien ArchitectsArchitecture News Share Gutter House / Núcleo de Arquitetura Experimental Gutter House / Núcleo de Arquitetura ExperimentalSave this projectSaveGutter House / Núcleo de Arquitetura Experimental Save this picture!© Alexandre Prass+ 42 Share ArchDaily Architects: Núcleo de Arquitetura Experimental Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/790360/gutter-house-nucleo-de-arquitetura-experimental Clipboard CopyAbout this officeNúcleo de Arquitetura ExperimentalOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGuaíbaBrazilPublished on June 30, 2016Cite: “Gutter House / Núcleo de Arquitetura Experimental ” 30 Jun 2016.

That according to Beck’s Regional Agronomy Manager Steve Gauck in this week’s Yield Check from Beck’s.Gauck says progress was made last week with soybeans despite the rain and fields are maintaining average to above average yields, though there are some pockets of disappointment.“You can hear every once in a while, field averages in the mid-70s even clear up to 80. You can even hear guys talk about, ‘Boy, my yield monitor hit triple digits in certain spots in the field,’ which is fantastic. Hard to maintain, but fantastic. We’ve got some heavy drought areas, waterlogged fields, water got over top, we may be seeing 20-30 bushel averages in some of those fields. So, quite a range depending on which weather pattern hit you.”Gauck says the story is similar with southern Indiana corn yields.“Still hear a lot of yields over 200 bushels. A lot of guys are talking this 230 range on some corn. Again, there are some pockets where we’re below that, but even on some poor ground averaging 200 bushels is very impressive.”With many beginning to wrap up harvest, Gauck believes conditions are great for some fall fieldwork like tillage.“We’re starting to push the window a little bit on some fall spraying, but your fields with a history of marestail, thistle, things like that, these winter annuals, this could be an opportunity to do some tillage or some fall herbicide applications to get those under control. If you get the opportunity to get some cover crops planted or do some fall tillage now with this moisture, the soil ought to be in great shape to do some really good things this winter.”Beck’s is dedicated to serving a community of farmers who love what they do and are proud to be farmers at heart.

Aaron Golipardo, a member of the national police, was arrested on 24 May 2006 for the murder of radio dyPR presenter Fernando Batul. Four witnesses identified Golipardo as the person who shot Batul from a motorcycle on 22 May. The person who was on the motorcycle with Golipardo has not yet been identified.Regional police chief Raul Genio said the motive for the murder may have been Batul’s comments about Golipardo’s violent behaviour. Batul had accused Golipardo on the air of threatening a waitress with his pistol. The police said Golipardo had already been accused of links to other murders.————————-22.05.2006A fifth journalist killed since start of 2006Reporters Without Borders expressed dismay at the murder on 22 May 2006 of Fernando Batul, a commentator on dyPR radio, shot dead by two men on a motorbike as he was on his way to work in Puerto Princesa on Palawan island (south-west of Manila). Provincial police chief Elpidio de Asis said the killing was probably linked to his work.The press freedom organisation said that murders of journalists investigating corruption were a frequent occurrence and that, after Iraq, the Philippines was viewed as the most dangerous country in the world for journalists. A press photographer was murdered there less than a week ago.Police said the murder of Batul appeared to be the work of hired killers and the instigators were most likely local officials whose corruption the journalist had exposed. He had just uncovered and broadcast a case of illegal recruitment of workers in which officials were implicated.The respected journalist was the target of an earlier attack on 24 April 2006 when two grenades were thrown into his home in Puerto Princesa but failed to detonate. His attackers had left a letter written in red ink in front of his house threatening to kill him and advising him to “hold his tongue”.“We urge the investigators to give full consideration to the professional lead,” said Reporters Without Borders. “We also call on the authorities to do their utmost to improve the security of journalists in the country and to fight against impunity,” it added.This latest killing comes less than one week after the murder of journalist Albert Orsolino. Two men shot dead the photographer of the tabloid Saksi Ngayon in Caloocan, north of Manila on 16 May. A link with his work also seemed highly likely since he often worked on sensitive cases.

Al-Forat reporter Fatima Al-Hassina and their assistant, Haidar Kadhem, were wounded by the explosion. In separate developments, two Dajla TV crews were roughed up by police yesterday in Diyala province, northeast of the capital.“It has not yet been established whether the car borrowed by the Al-Forat TV crew was deliberately targeted,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Although they take enormous precautions, journalists risk they lives each time they venture into the field in Iraq. The increase in the number of US soldiers and Iraqi police has reduced the frequency of bombings in Baghdad but not in the rest of the country. We strongly condemn the violence by armed groups against civilians.”Fartoosi was killed instantly by the bomb that had been buried beside the road near the town of Al-Balad (75 km north of the capital). The Al-Forat crew had been on its way Samarra to cover the second anniversary of the February 2006 bombing that destroyed the Shiite mausoleum of Imam Al-Hadi. Samarra has seen frequent clashes between Shiites and Sunnis during the past two years.A satellite TV station, Al-Forat is the mouthpiece of the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council (SIIC), a Shiite political party.According to the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory, the Reporters Without Borders partner organisation in Iraq, the road from Baghdad to Samarra is one of the most dangerous in the country. It was on this road that Atwar Bahjat of Al-Arabiya TV and her crew were kidnapped and murdered in 2006.At least 208 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the start of the US invasion in March 2003.Reporter Khaled Saleh and cameramen Laith Hamid of the Egypt-based satellite TV station Dajla were physically attacked yesterday by a senior police officer in Baquba, the capital of Diyala province (60 km northeast of Baghdad), while covering a conference on national reconciliation at the prefecture’s headquarters. The police officer did not want them to attend.The Journalistic Freedoms Observatory reported that another Dajla crew, cameraman Adnan Khader and reporter Sawssan Al-Dulaymi, were beaten and briefly detained by police officers in Baladruz, a town 30 km outside Baquba, for filming police trying to get fuel from a service station without waiting in line. to go further RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” February 15, 2021 Find out more
