Enter Your Email Address Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 6th May, 2020 The Covid-19 pandemic is nothing like anything most of us have seen in our lifetimes. That makes it hard to predict what turn the economy and the stock markets will take next. Some of us might even get the urge to panic-sell as the stock market crash ensues. After all, it’s better to cut your losses and run than sit around and wait for further erosion of our capital base. Yes?We couldn’t be more wrong. 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…It’s true that the pandemic itself is new, but neither the economy nor the stock markets are strangers to crises. They’ve happened multiple times in the past, and will happen in the future as well. But if economies and markets have survived them, clearly, so would have at least some of the companies. It’s hard to imagine a recession that destroys all business in its wake!A safe FTSE 100 growth shareIt so happens that several FTSE 100 companies have impressive endured through tough times. Some of them actually survived the Great Depression that started in 1929. And they are nowhere close to being done. On the contrary.For those of us who like to play it safe, there’s the Anglo-Dutch consumer goods giant Unilever. It has its roots back in the late 19th century. And incidentally, it came together under its current name in 1929, coinciding with the start of the Great Depression. I’ve made a case for buying this share in another article today, if it interests you. Long history and good income, even in the stock market crashThe FTSE 100 tobacco biggie Imperial Brands is another safe stock to consider buying. It’s in the process of re-orienting itself to a world that’s increasingly moving away from traditional tobacco products to ‘next generation’ ones. It remains to be seen how fast and how successfully it manages the transition. But do consider this.The company came together under the name of ‘Imperial Tobacco’, which it used until a few years ago, at the turn of the 20th century. It also has a high dividend yield of 12.5%. If we are wondering about dividend safety, we can take heart from IMB’s latest trading update. Released at March end, IMB says that there’s been “no material impact” on its performance till then. A rewarding stock for the resilientFor investors with higher resilience to volatile share price movements, the mining giant Anglo American is a good pick in my view too. It cut its production guidance in the last week of April, with the coronavirus crisis still underway. But, I thought it’s interesting that investors shrugged this news off completely. However, its share price is still far lower than it was in the pre-crash levels. AAL is over a 100 years old, which lends it gravity. There’s more. It has a 6.3% dividend yield right now. The owner of De Beers, the leading global diamond company, isn’t about to vanish into thin air.

This year brings a first for Tindall – an opening match on a Friday night, against Wales in Cardiff. Tindall knows the game’s result could set the tone for the rest of the championship.“It’s important to hit the ground running. In Australia in the summer we didn’t get going until the second game, and in the autumn we were off the pace in our first game against New Zealand. It’s an area we need to improve on.”England are favourites to win the Six Nations this year and the title would be a big boost ahead of the World Cup.“We can’t think about the World Cup yet, we’ve got to take each game as it comes,” he says. “Being favourites puts us under pressure, but we’ve got to be able to deal with that.”This article appeared in the March 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Mike Tindall tackled by Toby FloodMike Tindall is expected to be named by Martin Johnson, on Monday, as the man to take over from Lewis Moody as England captain for the trip to Wales to kick off the Six Nations.Tindall is interviewed in the new edition of Rugby World Magazine, out on Tuesday.AFTER England had won a Six Nations Grand Slam in 2003, if someone had suggested they wouldn’t win the title again for five years they would have been hauled away by the men in white coats.Well, it’s been eight years since they topped the table – and they haven’t even looked like winning a Triple Crown, let alone a Grand Slam.Few of the 2003 squad are still playing, but one man who was involved in that Grand Slam win is Mike Tindall. The Gloucester centre has experienced many highs and lows with England, and says the camp has rediscovered its positive mood at last.“The vibes have been great for the past year now,” he says. “Since we played France we’ve had a steady progression, and since the summer our confidence has been really high. We’ve started this season positively, and now the big challenge is to produce those performances again.”Tindall made his Test debut against Scotland in 2000 – and scored a try – and the Six Nations remains a highlight of his rugby calendar. He says: “The history and the rivalries are what makes this a great tournament. You can never take anything for granted; you can be the form team in any match, but if the other team pulls a performance out of the bag they can beat you. The atmosphere is electric as the stadiums are always full and every game feels like a special occasion.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS
ArchDaily Year: Save this picture!© Sarah Blee+ 11 Share Save this picture!© Sarah BleeThe elevation was modified by altering the pedimented section, replacing the windows and cladding the front above the ground floor: the larch timber cladding is of variable width and is stained charcoal black. The exposed brickwork at the ground floor level has been paint washed grey to create a gentler transition from the black. Existing window openings have been reused. Of the two new openings formed, one lights the new shower room and one creates a spacious and well lit arrival on the third floor. Fixed windows are set flush with the cladding; opening windows are set back with deep set oiled cedar clad reveals internally. This gives the facade a dynamic quality and a satisfying rhythm. Save this picture!SketchThe stepped section and pediment has been replaced by a simple shift in plan and a consistent horizontal roof line. The roof drainage gutters and down pipes are hidden behind the new cladding which helps retain a clean uncluttered facade. The front door was retained and painted orange; the steps were reformed and widened with planting beds either side. Key internal spaces: the study and bedrooms are fitted out in cedar. Of critical importance to the client has been the future proofing of the house: more balanced accommodation with new shower facility, enhanced roof insulation, efficient gutters along with some rainwater attenuation at ground level. The project has visually detached the end of terrace from the immediate neighbours, creating a distinctive bold, simple but elegant new house without the need for major construction work: a house which relates in a more exciting and relevant way to the other individual buildings in the mews.

On a sunny day the mews could be on Venice Beach. Save this picture!© Sarah BleeThe three storey house was built by a developer as part of a group of 6 terraced houses in 1988 to replace a laundry. The houses are uncharacteristic of the rest of the mews: a confusion of Post Modern, Victorian and Georgian styles in a mixture of brick and render with some ill considered detailing. 17A, which is the end of the terrace, is distinct in that it was set back with a pedimented gable section stepping forward over the entrance. The design brief quickly evolved from a modest exercise to add a shower room to the top floor and upgrade sub-standard roof insulation and low grade single glazed windows into a challenging project to completely re-design, simplify and rationalise the whole front elevation and to fit out a number of key internal spaces.Save this picture!© Sarah BleeThe brief was to move away from the clumsy design vocabulary of the ‘80s terrace while retaining the existing structure and openings, to design within the spirit of the best of the mews architecture and to create a bold and well detailed building using a limited pallet of materials.After studying a range of cladding options including render and metal, it was decided that a timber rain screen would be the most suitable, accommodating a satisfactory articulation of the front façade and incorporating the modest roof extension.Save this picture!Elevation Post RenovationThe Planning process was challenging and time consuming because of the Conservation Area status, but through debate and consultation, planning officers were persuaded and the scheme was accepted without any compromise.

Howard Lake | 20 March 2003 | News The National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), Christian Aid, The Refugee Council, Action for South Africa (ACTSA) and the National Autistic Society are amongst the first charities to use switchandgive. Each has its own branded version of the Web site (eg www.switchandgive.com/nspcc) and is marketing the service through its supporter base, staff and corporate partnerships. The Web site was developed by BouncingFish, and included a management information tool to help Fundraising Innovations track the success of the charity partners’ marketing channels in order to maximise their revenue potential.Jay Manek, co-founder and director of Fundraising Innovations Ltd explained the company’s approach. “Fundraising Innovations was created to develop longterm partnerships with charities to help them realise the full fundraising potential offered by the Internet and new technologies. So far, much has been talked about in the charity sector, but little revenue has actually been realised. Fundraising Innovations aims to change this.”Charities will receive up to £40 for dual fuel (gas and electricity) switches, depending on the supplier and tariff chosen. For each fuel switched (i.e. gas or electricity), Fundraising Innovations keeps £5, and donates the rest to charity. This, says the company, usually amounts to about 70-80% of the commission received from new suppliers. To date, the average donation to charity has been £36 per user that has switched to a new supplier.

Given that there are generally two people to a household, 5% of a charity’s supporter base will switch gas and electricity supplier each year. A charity with 100,000 supporters could raise up to £180,000 each year, if this 5% of their supporter base switched through switchandgive.com.” Advertisement 28 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis
