I’d buy this bargain FTSE 100 stock to get rich and retire early

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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. If you want to get rich and retire early, I’d take advantage of the stock market crash to go shopping for shares today. I’d be looking at bargain FTSE 100 stocks like Royal Bank of Scotland Group (LSE: RBS), with the aim of holding them until markets recover and beyond. The RBS share price is up 3% this morning despite it reporting that profits halved in the first quarter. They would have risen by a healthy 20%, but bad debts are set to jump sharply due to Covid-19. Investors knew what to expect, as other banks made similar provisions earlier this week.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…RBS has been hit by the stock market crash but still looks to me like a bargain FTSE 100 stock, if you plan to hold it for the long term. You could be rewarded for buying at the moment of maximum crisis. This will turbocharge your quest to retire early and have some fun.Use the stock market crashThe pandemic will continue to menace the economy, and rattle stock markets for months. The recovery could be slow, as many Britons will be reluctant to move out of lockdown, even when the government eases the rules. You could hold off investing until we get the all-clear. But you will have missed your opportunity to buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks like this one, to boost your chances of retiring early.RBS is in the eye of the coronavirus storm right now. Operating profit fell from £1bn to £519mto 30 March, even though the lockdown only took hold in the final weeks. It set aside £802m for bad debts, up from from £86m last year.Retire early by planning aheadAlong with the other high street banks, RBS stopped all dividend payouts and share buybacks under pressure from the Prudential Regulation Authority. We learned today that management is committed to its dividend but “will defer decisions on any future shareholder distributions until the end of 2020”.Falling GDP, near-zero interest rates, flat yield curves and ongoing market uncertainty will hit the bank. RBS also said planned regulatory changes will reduce personal business income by around £200m.Buy this bargain FTSE 100 stockThere was good news as well. Total income rose 4.1% to a better-than-expected $3.2bn. Litigation and conduct costs fell sharply, with the PPI provision down to just £100m, after it received fewer-than-predicted valid complaints.RBS’s common equity tier 1 capital ratio climbed from 16.2% to 16.6%, putting it in a solid financial position. Cancelling the dividend and buy-backs have helped. Cost-cutting plans should give it another lift. The months ahead will be tough, and we may even see another stock market crash. However, RBS still looks tempting, trading at a price-to-book value of just 0.3. If you want enough money to retire early, a bargain FTSE 100 dividend stock like this one could help.

Accessed from Kloof Road, which winds along the western slopes of Lion’s Head, this site is positioned in the wind-protected suburb of Clifton. Years before any development was introduced, this slope was conceivably covered by indigenous forest and fynbos. Today, however, the area is developed and enjoys spectacular views over the sandy beaches, boulder outcrops, and Twelve Apostles mountains towards the south and sunset views over the Atlantic Ocean.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe first aspect of the project that required addressing was the steep slope that would have to be excavated to accommodate the structure. The home was conceived as an arrangement of staggered blocks that rise along the side of the mountain, with the upper, private levels becoming appropriately shielded from both visibility and street-level noise.Save this picture!© Adam LetchSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adam Letch‘The conceptual approach to the design was to reinstate the qualities of a natural landscape,’ says architect Phillippe Fouché of South African architectural firm SAOTA, who lead the project. The lower part of the building, an independent apartment, is then expressed as ‘a heavy stone plinth’, its gabion-walled exterior and cocooning interior of dark-stained oak and off shutter concrete reflecting the strata of the mountainside out of which they emerge. On top of this is a transitional space that is expressed as a green terrace and braai area, representative of what would have been the landscape’s foliage level. All levels of the house are connected via a sculptural timber staircase, like a folded ribbon that, appropriate to the home’s design narrative, gradually lightens in tone as it rises.Save this picture!© Adam LetchA vertically slatted box hovers over the terrace, allowing the forest bushwillow trees below to grow into this level, with screens that can be opened or closed to adjust the amount of natural light filtering into the interior, ‘as if you were sitting in the shade of a large tree’. The structure was engineered from a durable yet lightweight aluminium in a finish that mimics the different tones of bark, a durable solution to weathering Cape Town’s capricious seasons.Save this picture!© Adam Letch‘Above this, the living level is set back considerably to follow the slope of the mountain, resulting in added privacy and acoustic buffering while creating the perception that one is on a platform, connected to the surrounding views,’ says Phillippe. ‘The space is visually extended via the introduction of a courtyard towards the mountainside, which allows for ventilation, light and, again, an opportunity for planting.’ The concrete ceiling of this level, shuttered with rough-sawn planks, championing its raw texture. This emphasis on natural materiality can also be seen in the wooden floors and timber-clad scullery in this space. The scullery also forms the base of a mezzanine-level private study, which is accessed via a bridge that spans the length of the room.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe uppermost level, the master bedroom, sits above the tree-tops and as such the materials – white marble, pale timber – and use of skylights express a feeling of air and openness while fold-away glass walls welcome in the full expanse of the view.Save this picture!© Adam LetchProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding 83 Interior Architecture / Bora ArchitectsSelected ProjectsAL122 Apartment / Gabriela Estefam + Augusto KenjiSelected Projects Share Kloof 145 House / SAOTA ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Photographslast_img read more

Borotba leader responds to teardown of Lenin statue

first_imgThis article was written by Sergei Kirichuk, a leader of the Ukrainian organization Borotba (Struggle), now living in exile, in response to the fascists’ tearing down the statue of Vladimir Lenin in the city of Kharkov on Sept. 29.  Today the oligarchy is experiencing a “golden age,” when participants in any protest can be declared terrorists. And to break up demonstrations, they are using Nazi militants.In Kharkov, the monument to Vladimir Lenin was torn down. The organizers of this operation did not conceal that it was revenge for an attempt by Communist Party activists to hold a peace march. As you know, the march was broken up by the police, in conjunction with the Nazi gangs.Here is what Minister of Interior Arsen Avakov wrote on Facebook: “Lenin? Let him fall … If only people were not injured. If only this bloody communist idol, in leaving, had not added to his victims. If only rogues and scoundrels had not taken advantage of the storm of emotions of Kharkovites, did not use it for regular clashes.” That is, the minister recognizes that the act of vandalism could cause an escalation of tension, but still indulges the Nazis. They make sure that everything is under control. Avakov writes: “The Interior Ministry Special Forces and the National Guard are ready to face provocateurs who want to exploit the situation. And they should not try.”We have no doubt, by the way. No doubt that “provocateurs” will be the label for any participants in any protests that result from the policy of the current government. Inna Bohoslovska [described in next paragraph], who is now, of course, a supporter of the new regime, rejoices in the demolition of Lenin: “For so long we struggled for normal police in Kharkov. And now, 20 percent of police officers are absolutely patriotic. Police took over the crazy work, and every day they catch terrorists and separatists.”Bohoslovska has never been an independent person; she was always a “talking head” for [oligarch Victor] Pinchuk. Her voice speaks for the Ukrainian oligarchy. They are building the state of their dreams, where they can loot and pillage while any dissenters are called “terrorists.” Our neoliberals openly rejoice, as the mill grinds a direct route to 1970s’ Latin American-style dictatorships of neoliberal economy against the backdrop of military dictatorship. Toward Pinochet — the idol of neoliberal society.Today the oligarchy is experiencing a “golden age,” when participants of any protest can be declared terrorists. And to break up demonstrations, they are using Nazi militants. Of course, this system requires a furious injection of frenzy and extensive brainwashing in matters of history. The whole history of the territory of modern Ukraine (from “protoukrov” until now) is described as the nation’s struggle for independence and what made it necessary to establish the current political regime. This is a war between civilization and barbarism.Kharkov was the first capital of Ukraine; it built planes and missiles, split the atom and created the T-34 tank, and created turbines for power plants that have been shipped around the world. Kharkov without Lenin is nationalism without principle; it’s a degradation of education and science. It’s not for nothing that a few of the Nazis were injured during the destruction of the monument — their level of understanding is not enough even to destroy an object, let alone to build one.Of course, it would be an exaggeration to say that Lenin was the founder of Ukraine. That Ukraine exists in its present borders, however, is as a result of the activities of Lenin and his political party. The Nazis’ demolition of the monument to one of the founders of the country is a death sentence for its existence with these borders in the future.Translation by Greg Butterfield, original at thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Philly REAL protest blocks I-676

first_imgThe Philly REAL Justice Coalition and the Black & Brown Workers Collective led a demonstration in the streets of Philadelphia on July 6, in outrage at yet another Black man being killed by cops, this time in Baton Rouge, La.  Carrying out their “no business as usual” event-page post by marching through busy downtown shopping district streets, protesters eventually surprised police officials by occupying the on and off ramps of the I-676 expressway.  Seasoned activists and first-time demonstrators spoke out against police terror for an hour before cops began threatening arrests.  Twelve people sat down in a line across the on-ramp and refused to leave.  Cops seized each protester, tied their wrists behind their backs with zip ties and took them to the Ninth Precinct.  Fifty supporters waited outside the police station until those arrested were finally released.  The arrestees were each given citations with fines of $300.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Tzu Chi Mobile Food Pantry: Food Distribution in Southern California

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS It’s no secret: fast foods and ready-to-eat products are quick, cheap, and are designed to momentarily satisfy the palate. For a family struggling to make ends meet, the price of fresh, nutritious, and wholesome food is often too expensive. And, for a small subset of these families, getting hold of even any food is a bigger struggle.The California Association of Food Banks estimates that about 12.5% of Californians do not know where their next meal is coming from. This is about one in every eight people, but it gets worse. The American Dietetic Association reports a link between food insecurity and hunger with obesity, where a parent, when presented with a food option, may be more inclined to choose a high-fat, high-calorie product that is cheaper, as opposed to fresher, healthier options.All of this is why the Tzu Chi Foundation has committed itself to alleviating the economic and nutrition-related barriers low-income families face in Southern California. We directly offer adults and children a chance to have wholesome, nutritious meals for free via our Tzu Chi Mobile Food Pantry.We host distributions throughout Los Angeles and the Southern California area to donate food items by our specially designated mobile food pantry. We offer a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as dry goods, like rice, beans, and other pantry items to low-income families.Since the start of 2018, our mobile food bank has distributed nearly 227,900 lbs. of food to exactly 7,596 low-income households. Over 27,440 individuals have already benefited from the 35 distributions that have taken place since January 14 this year! Learn more about the impact of this program in Tzu Chi Mobile Food Pantry: Paying It Forward.In connection with our Tzu Chi Mobile Food Pantry program, we partner with local schools in Southern California including Alhambra High School, Indian Springs High School, Miles Avenue Elementary, Juanita Blakely Jones Elementary School, and much more.At the same time, in our plight for environmental protection, we also encourage all families to bring their own bags and boxes to take home their goods. It feels great to do the world- and the people in it- extra good.It is our privilege to lift even a small burden off families’ shoulders throughout Southern California. We will continue to do so via our Tzu Chi Mobile Pantry program. You can help by volunteering or contributing to our food relief efforts via the Join Hands Campaign. Together, we can ensure no child in our beautiful state goes hungry again. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff Community News Your email address will not be published.

Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Dr. Tommy Bice, Alabama State Superintendent of Education, encouraged his staff to be engaged in first-day openings at schools throughout the state and DeBruyne answered the call.“I live near Banks and I wanted to take this opportunity to be a part of the first day of school at a small school and I have been very impressed,” DeBruyne said. “It was obvious that the students and parents take great pride in their school.”DeBruyne participated in several first-day activities including greeting students, putting up bulletin boards, monitoring the lunchroom and assisting Scott in entering data in her “binder” and compiling teacher materials.The family atmosphere at Banks gave the school a sense of “homecoming.”“I understand how the atmosphere here could have a positive benefit for the students and their families,” DeBruyne said.Scott expressed appreciation to DeBruyne for choosing Banks School and to Bice for encouraging his staff to visit the schools and see, first hand, the professionalism of the teachers and administrators and the eagerness of the students to be back in school.“I’m honored that our superintendent, Dr. Mark Bazzell, had enough confidence in me, a first year principal, to allow me to have a representative from the State Department of Education to visit Banks.”On her first day of school, Scott allowed herself to dream “just a little.”“I want to see our enrollment increase and for Banks School to continue putting teaching in the forefront,” she said. “There’s an indication that we might get a new building and that’s exciting. Banks School is a little gold mine. It’s a hidden jewel and I am honored to be a part of Banks School.”Just across the county and up the hill, Carolyn Hampton was just as honored and excited to be a part of Charles Henderson High School as its vice principal.“I have been so impressed with how smoothly everything has gone today,” Hampton said. “So much planning and organization has gone into getting school off to a great start and it has paid off.”The former Charles Henderson Middle School building is being demolished to make way for a new school building and the seventh- and eighth-grades are being housed on the CHHS campus.“It’s amazing how this is working,” Hampton said. “It’s almost like two campuses with the seventh and eighth grade on one campus and nine through 12 on another. It’s evident that a lot of thought and planning has gone into making sure that this arrangement works.”Hampton said even the traffic flow at the school was orderly and moved at a good pace.“The traffic followed the blue and orange markings and there were very few snags,” she said.Hampton said some of the credit for a smooth first day of school should be given to parental involvement.“Parental participation in the meet-and-tells was very good,” she said. “Parents were well informed and knew what to expect. Everything was in place today and it was powerful.”New facilities are already a reality at CHHS. The new cafetorium opened last year and the new media center was showcased on opening day.No one was more excited about the new media center than Librarian Sharon Rhodes.“To have a media center like this is a tremendous asset,” Rhodes said. “It is conveniently located on campus and offers a wide selection of resource books and books for reading pleasure.”The media center has adequate space to attractively display an extensive collection of reading materials, reading and work areas for the students and a separate room for lectures and programs.Dr. Boyd English, CHHS principal, shared Hampton’s opinion that the first day of school at CHHS was successful and Rhodes’ excitement for the new media center.“For the first day of school to be successful, two things are critical,” English said. “First, we have to made sure that the students arrive safely and are acclimated to the daily schedule and are dismissed safely. Everything went well and today was a success.”English said patience will be required regarding traffic until parents and students are more accustomed to the additional traffic that is inherent with having the seventh and eighth grades on campus.“The second thing that we must do is lay the groundwork for a successful year,” he said.“Today, we gave the students the groundwork for success by knowing what to expect out of their classes and what they are expected to give in return.”English said that he, too, takes pride in the new media center and his expectations are that the media center will be a focus area for the students throughout the year.“We’ve moved to all textbooks being on iPads and we’ll have the advisor program that we will unveil after Labor Day,” English said. “At CHHS, we believe that the development of personal relationships is critical to being well-rounded, successful students. So, we are preparing for the unveiling new initiatives as well.” Banks School welcomed 360 students in grades K-8 in rural Pike County.Charles Henderson High School had greetings for about 1,000 students in grades seven through 12 in an urban setting.But, on a scale of one to 10, the excitement of the first day of the 2013-2014 school year and school pride were 10s on all accounts. “It was a wonderful first day of school at Banks School,” said Lee Scott, who was experiencing her first day as school principal. “Teachers were greeting their students by first name and many parents and teachers were on a first name basis. It is truly a family atmosphere at Banks School.”Banks School has two campuses, with grades K-3 at the primary school on the Brundidge Highway and grades 4-8 at the middle school on U.S. Highway 29.“I had anticipated a hectic day but everything went very smoothly,” Scott said. “Of course, I had a couple of extra pairs of hands and that made my day easier.”Scott said Angela Smith, a newly retired Banks School teacher, came to assist as did Tina DeBruyne, a State Department of Education representative.
