So given a reasonable economy, companies tend to make reasonable profits, which they pay out to their shareholders in the form of dividends.And right now, there are some tasty yields on offer – even with the Footsie at around 7600 at the time of writing.5% plusAmong my own holdings, for instance, Royal Dutch Shell is on a yield of 6.7%, HSBC on a yield of 6.9%, mining giant BHP on a yield of 5.9%, and insurance firm Legal & General a yield of 5.5%. Malcolm Wheatley | Friday, 31st January, 2020 Malcolm owns shares in Tesco, Royal Dutch Shell, Primary Health Properties, 3i Infrastructure, Empiric Student Property, British Land, Hammerson, and NewRiver Retail. The Motley Fool UK has recommended British Land Co, DS Smith, Primary Health Properties, and Tesco. The response was a combination of a scornful laugh and a look of incredulity. 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. See all posts by Malcolm Wheatley “ISAs? You won’t get much of an income from one of those!” On the contrary, I replied: I was getting a return of around 5% on my investments.Again, there was that look of incredulity. But this time, without the scornful laugh.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…On the floor I’m always surprised how few people are really aware of the possibilities offered by dividends, and by ISAs containing shares that pay decent and sustainable dividends. Say the word ‘ISA’, and they generally think solely of Cash ISAs from banks and building societies, which for the last decade have paid truly derisory rates of interest. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images If it doesn’t come on January 30th, observers are already pencilling it in for the next time that the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee meets to set rates. In real terms, you’re losing moneyClearly, it would be naïve to expect any early return to the interest rate regime of – say – the mid-2000s, when savers could actually get a positive return on the hard-earned money. Chatting to someone the other day, I mentioned that I was sort of semi-retired – not actually drawing a pension, but not working as hard as I used to, either. 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.

Opt for more of a ‘safety first’ stance, and there are plenty of attractive yields on offer at around the 4.5% mark – pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, for instance, yields 4.4%. Time to take the plunge?Buying a broadly-diversified clutch of such companies isn’t rocket science. These are businesses that should be big enough to withstand more than a few setbacks, and – for the most part – aren’t troubled by burdensome regulatory regimes.Nor are brokerages expensive, or difficult to find. Buying shares, as I’ve written before, is easier than ever, and both far less expensive and far less complicated then when I started, all those years ago. In other words, to spell it out in its starkest terms, typical bank account interest rates are dwarfed by the rate of inflation. In purchasing power terms, savers’ savings are actually shrinking. Whatever happens to interest rates, your Cash ISA will continue to disappoint Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. All of those strike me as pretty dependable businesses, and those with an eye to take on a little more risk – tobacco firms BAT and Imperial Brands, maybe, or Royal Mail – will find yields that are even higher. Which for pensioners, is fairly bad news.The dividend alternativeYet, here’s the thing. Companies’ dividends relate to the profits that they make, and aren’t set by Bank of England policymakers. Instead, a lot of the day-to-day bills were paid by a monthly income that I took from a couple of ISAs. These days, rates are not only derisory. They are also negative, in real terms. So if your bank or building society Cash ISA continues to disappoint, it could be time to think about a Stocks and Shares ISA instead. (Ironically, too, when interest rates are low, many companies make higher profits – because debt is cheaper.) Eventually restored to 0.5%, it finally climbed above that level in late 2018. Now at a dizzying – yes, dizzying! – 0.75%, a cut is again on the cards as I write these words. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply put, that means that what you can buy with these savings this month, is less than you could buy the month before, and less than you could buy the month before that. When in early 2009 the Bank of England slashed Bank Rate three times in three successive months, it was supposed to be a temporary response to the financial crisis. Instead, the rate stayed at 0.5% until 2016 – when it was cut again, to 0.25%, in response to the post-referendum slump.

ArchDaily Projects Apartments Save this picture!© Mark Vaghei and Nataliaphotostudio+ 19 Share Ocean Breeze Apartments / atelier VSave this projectSaveOcean Breeze Apartments / atelier V Photographs: Mark Vaghei and NataliaphotostudioText description provided by the architects. The long anticipated Ocean Breeze affordable senior housing complex located at 1458 14th street in the city of Santa Monica, California celebrated its grand opening today. Officials and dignitaries from the City including Councilmember Richard Bloom and members of Santa Monica Department of Housing and Economic Development as well as MacFarlane Costa Housing Partners’ President, Mr. Michael Costa, the Owners of the project were amongst those present at the ceremonies. The project initially received its Architectural Review Board (ARB) approval back in February of 2006 but did not start construction until fall of 2008.The complex sits atop a standard 7,500 sf corner lot at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and 14th Street in the Braodway Commercial District (BCD) with the main entry off Broadway Avenue. It consists of 20-low income senior units on 4 above grade levels plus an 1,800 sf commercial component on the ground level. There are 16 subterranean and one grade level parking spaces in the project. Typical unit sizes are approximately 600 sf on a single loaded corridor configuration with a considerable set back on the fourth level allowing for generous open-air balconies. The total project is approximately 15,700 sf taking advantage of a density bonus as well as reduced senior’s parking requirement that the City of Santa Monica offered. ” The small site, limited access, differential grades, the program and the city zoning requirements presented unique challenges that we had to overcome.” says Mark Vaghei , AIA, atelier V’s Principal in charge of design. Due to the differential of at least 18 inches in such a small site , atelier V had to devise a “Double Slab” solution to the problem. The first slab is the projects main structural slab topped by a secondary sloping slab with structural foam separating the two. This solution “…allowed on grade entrance and no steps to all units as well as to the commercial space thereby eliminating the need for handicap ramps.” says Mark Vaghei, AIA.Save this picture!© Mark Vaghei and NataliaphotostudioRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesThe project is a 4- story Type V-A building with a typical shear wall and TJI construction. The ground floor commercial open space is achieved through the use of a structural steel exposed braced system transferring the loads to the 14 inch reinforced concrete slab. The exterior skin of the building is cement plaster and corrugated metal with Stainless steel cable railings. ” We wanted to break away from the norms of low income housing design and give our client something extra without going overboard. Fortunately there was precedence in Santa Monica for this objective to take shape. We feel that we were able to achieve design excellence without being trendy and belonging to a any particular era. Of course time will tell!” says Mark Vaghei.Project gallerySee allShow less2010 CGarchitect.com Architectural 3D AwardsArticlesMosque Proposal / StudiOZArticlesProject locationAddress:Santa Monica, CA, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Melanie May | 3 December 2020 | News Irrecoverable VAT is now costing charities £1.8bn a year according to new research by London Economics and commissioned by the Charity Tax Group.The research highlights the fact that, because charities cannot always pass on the cost of VAT, they are unable to recover the VAT on their purchases in full, which can result in having to use charity funds, which could be used to help beneficiaries, to pay VAT bills instead.To tackle the increasing VAT burden, the Charity Tax Group is calling on the Government to introduce a new special charity VAT rate on purchases, to complement existing reduced and zero rates and the social exemptions. The proposal would benefit all charities, and could be adjusted depending on economic circumstances.In its report, Charities and VAT: an evaluation, it calls for VAT reform for charities in response to new research from London Economics: The value of VAT reliefs for the charity sector. The research quantifies the value of existing VAT reliefs on purchases (£0.8bn) and the impact of VAT on charity sales and service delivery. It also demonstrates the total tax contribution made by charities, which amounts to £10.12bn a year and quantifies the reliefs available to them.Launching the research, John Hemming, Chairman, Charity Tax Group, commented:“The research is very timely: there are various reviews underway looking at how VAT should operate after Brexit. Charities benefit from some important reliefs, but also incur significant irrecoverable VAT. There are both opportunities and risks for the sector as we need to protect the reliefs that we currently have and we also need help with the increasing cost of irrecoverable VAT.“For too long, VAT has been a burden on charitable activity: we have looked at ways to solve the problem and are proposing the introduction of a special VAT rate for charity purchases. This would result in significant VAT savings for all charities and free up funds for essential services. This is a clear and practical solution to address this problem and support the valuable work UK charities are doing on behalf of us all.”Rohit Ladher, Associate Director, London Economics, added: Advertisement Tagged with: Charity Tax Group Finance VAT “As charities face unprecedented challenges (not least due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis) and opportunities (for example with the UK’s departure from the EU), it is important to remind ourselves of the value generated by charities in the UK. While charities benefit from certain tax reliefs and exemptions, this study highlights the significant tax burden they continue to face.”CTG will be submitting its proposal to the Treasury Select Committee Inquiry on Tax after Coronavirus and as part of its next Budget Submission.
Previous articleState Ag Statistician Greg Matli to Retire and Winter Weather this Week on the HAT Tuesday Morning EditionNext articleNo Export Changes Due to China Trade Deal in Supply and Demand Report Andy Eubank USDA Releases February World Supply and Demand Report The outlook for 2019/20 U.S. WHEAT is for stable supplies, increased exports, and decreased ending stocks. The only supply or use category that was changed this month was a 25 million bushel increase in exports reflecting growing competitiveness in international markets. Ending stocks are cut by a corresponding amount and are now forecast to total 940 million bushels, a five-year low.Global wheat supplies are lowered fractionally on small and mostly offsetting changes to beginning stocks and production. World exports are increased 1.8 million tons led by a 1.0-million-ton increase for the EU on strong shipments and more competitive prices.Kazakhstan is raised 0.8 million tons, also on a fast export pace. United States is increased 0.7 million tons and is projected to have the largest exports in three years.Partly offsetting are export reductions of 0.5 million tons for Canada and 0.3 million tons for Pakistan. World imports for 2019/20 are raised 1.9 million tons led by a 0.8-million-ton increase for China and a 0.7-million-ton increase for Turkey, both on a strong pace to date. There are also several historical revisions for trade, consumption, and ending stocks reflecting updated export data, particularly for Pakistan. For the 2019/20 market year, global consumption and ending stocks are lowered fractionally though world ending stocks remain record large.COARSE GRAINS: This month’s 2019/20 U.S. corn outlook is little changed relative to last month, with offsetting changes to exports and corn used for ethanol. Exports are lowered 50 million bushels, reflecting the slow pace of shipments through January. Offsetting is a 50 million bushel increase in corn used for ethanol, based on Grain Crushings and Co-Products Production data through December and the robust pace of weekly ethanol production data as reported by the Energy Information Administration during the month of January. With no other use changes, U.S. corn ending stocks are unchanged from last month. The season average corn price received by producers is also unchanged at $3.85 per bushel.Global coarse grain production for 2019/20 is projected 0.9 million tons higher to 1,402.7 million. This month’s foreign coarse grain outlook is for larger production and consumption, and lower stocks relative to last month. Global corn production is raised 0.8 million tons, with increases for South Africa, Moldova, and Ukraine more than offsetting a reduction for Vietnam. For South Africa, production is higher as timely rainfall during the month of January improves yield prospects.Major global trade changes for 2019/20 include higher projected corn exports for South Africa, Ukraine, and the EU, with a largely offsetting reduction for the United States. Corn imports are raised for Turkey and Brazil, with the latter reflecting larger-than-expected shipments to livestock production areas in the southern part of the country. Foreign corn ending stocks are down from last month, mostly reflecting reductions for Vietnam, Brazil, Paraguay, and the EU. Global corn ending stocks, at 296.8 million tons, are down 1.0 million from last month.RICE: This month’s outlook for 2019/20 U.S. rice is for increased imports, higher exports, and larger ending stocks. All rice imports are raised 2.4 million cwt to a record 32.5 million on an extremely fast pace so far in the market year. Long-grain imports are raised 1.5 million cwt consisting largely of fragrant varieties from Asia. Combined medium- and short-grain imports are raised 0.9 million cwt on continued imports from China. Total rice exports are raised 1.0 million cwt (all long-grain) reflecting a strong pace of shipments so far in the market year and an abnormally large outstanding sales balance. All rice ending stocks are raised 1.4 million cwt to 30.0 million and the season-average farm price is lowered $0.20 per cwt to $13.00, still the highest price in 5 years.Global 2019/20 rice supplies are raised fractionally with higher beginning stocks mostly offset by lower production. Global exports are lowered 0.8 million tons led by a 0.6-million-ton decrease for India reflecting a slowing pace. Global imports are down 0.4 million tons and world consumption is down 0.9 million; both reflecting several downward revisions. With supplies higher and consumption lower, global ending stocks are raised 1.0 million tons to a record high 178.1 million.OILSEEDS: This month’s 2019/20 U.S. soybean outlook is for increased exports and lower ending stocks. Soybean exports for 2019/20 are projected at 1.825 billion bushels, up 50 million from last month partly reflecting increased imports for China. With soybean crush unchanged, soybean ending stocks are reduced 50 million bushels to 425 million.The U.S. season-average soybean price for 2019/20 is forecast at $8.75 per bushel, down 25 cents reflecting reported prices to date. The soybean oil price forecast is lowered 0.5 cents to 33.5 cents per pound. The soybean meal price forecast is unchanged at $305.00 per short ton.This month’s 2019/20 global oilseed outlook includes higher production, trade, and stocks relative to last month. Global oilseed production is raised 2.2 million tons to 576.8 million,with higher soybean, sunflowerseed, and cottonseed production. Partly offsetting is lower palm kernel production. Soybean production for Brazil is increased 2 million tons to 125million due to favorable weather in Mato Grosso as well as improved rainfall in southern and northeastern soybean areas. Sunflowerseed production is increased for Ukraine on a higher yield. Palm kernel and palm oil production are reduced for Malaysia and Indonesia on current production to date and dry weather conditions throughout the past year.Global 2019/20 oilseed exports are raised mainly on a 2.4-million-ton increase to soybean trade. China’s soybean imports are increased 3 million tons to 88 million reflecting highersoybean crush. Correspondingly, soybean exports are increased for the United States, Brazil, and Ukraine. Global soybean ending stocks are 2.2 million tons higher than last month, with higher stocks for China and Brazil.SUGAR: Mexico sugar production for 2019/20 is projected at 5.672 million metric tons (MT), a reduction of 99,994 from last month. This forecast matches the survey-based estimate made by CONADESUCA on February 5. Imports and domestic deliveries are unchanged. Ending stocks are increased slightly to reflect 2.5 months of forecast domestic sugar use before the start of the 2020/21 sugarcane harvest. These changes of 101,388 MT flow through to a reduction of forecast exports. Exports outside of those shipments under license to the United States are reduced to 32,951 MT, an amount estimated by CONADESUCA that is equal to exports through January 26. Exports to the United States are reduced by 94,296 MT to 1.469 million.Total U.S. supply for 2019/20 is reduced by 33,694 short tons, raw value (STRV) on lower forecast imports. Imports from Mexico are reduced 110,180 STRV to 1.717 million. TRQ imports are increased by 70,486 STRV to 1.674 million. This increase reflects the USTR reallocation of unused country-specific quota allocations for the fiscal year 2019/20 WTO raw sugar TRQ announced on February 6. The resulting raw sugar WTO shortfall is projected at 40,000 STRV. There are no changes to use. Ending stocks are projected at 1.516 million STRV, implying an ending stocks-to-use ratio of 12.36 percent, down from 12.69 percent last month.LIVESTOCK, POULTRY, AND DAIRY: The 2020 forecast for total red meat and poultry production is raised from last month on higher forecast beef, pork, and broiler production. The beef production forecast is raised from the previous month on higher cattle slaughter and heavier cattle weights in the first half of the year. However, the forecasts for second half beef production is reduced on lower anticipated steer and heifer slaughter in the second half of the year. This reflects a smaller number of cattle outside feedlots implied by the January 1 Cattle report which results in lower placements during 2020. Pork production is raised on higher expected hog slaughter and heavier carcass weights. Broiler production is raised on recent hatchery data which shows continued growth in the laying flock. The turkey production forecast is decreased as hatchery data points toward slower expected production growth. Forecast egg production is increased. Estimates of 2019 red meat, poultry, and egg production are adjusted to reflect December data.For 2020, the beef export forecast is lowered slightly reflecting weakness in several markets, but no change is made to the beef import forecast. The pork export forecast is raised from last month on expected robust global demand. The turkey export forecast is reduced from last month. Broiler and egg trade forecasts are unchanged for 2020. Livestock, poultry and egg trade estimates for 2019 are adjusted to reflect December trade data.Fed-cattle prices for the first quarter of 2020 are lowered from last month on recent prices.Hog price forecasts are reduced from last month on increased production. Broiler, turkey, and egg price forecasts are raised from the previous month as demand remains strong.The milk production forecast for 2020 is unchanged from last month. The 2020 fat basis export and import forecasts are unchanged from the previous month. On a skim-solidsbasis, the import forecast is unchanged while the export forecast is raised on the strength of international demand for nonfat dry milk/skim milk powder. Dairy supply and use estimates for 2019 are adjusted to reflect December data.Annual product price forecasts for cheese and butter are lowered from the previous month as demand remains relatively weak. The 2020 nonfat dry milk forecast is unchanged while the whey price forecast is raised from last month. The Class III price is reduced on the lower cheese price forecast while the Class IV price is reduced, reflecting a lower butter price forecast. The 2020 all milk price forecast is reduced to $18.85 per cwt.COTTON: The U.S. cotton estimates for 2019/20 are unchanged, except for a 1 cent-perpound reduction in the season-average upland farm price, to 62 cents, 8.3 cents lower than in 2018/19. The 2019/20 world cotton forecasts include a 2.5-million-bale increase in ending stocks, driven by both larger production and lower consumption. A 1-million-bale decline in China’s expected consumption is the largest single change this month: consumption is lower despite the positive impact of the U.S.-China trade agreement, due in part to the negative economic effects of the novel coronavirus outbreak. Consumption is also projected lower in Vietnam but higher in Pakistan and Turkey. Production in Brazil in 2018/19 is revised upward by 480,000 bales reflecting higher production in Mato Grosso. Pakistan, Brazil, and Tanzania production in 2019/20 is revised upward. Total production changes this month come to a 1.3-million-bale global increase, while total consumption changes net to a 1.2-million-bale reduction.Source: USDA SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Releases February World Supply and Demand Report SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 11, 2020
Frog Aides helps supports local businesses with on-campus ‘state fair’ event Facebook + posts Market Square makes changes in response to student complaints Cultural Game Night printEncouraging Quality Understanding And Leading Individuals To Unity (E.Q.U.A.L.I.T.Y.) and Students for Asian Indian Cultural Awareness (SAICA) hosted a night of games, music and food last weekE.Q.U.A.L.I.T.Y. Co-President Bianca Jordan said the event was held to provide a cultural learning experience for students.“We wanted to reach out to more groups on campus and to introduce people to different cultures,” she said.With roughly 14 students in attendance, Jordan expressed frustration towards the lack of participation from White students, but said her organization is working towards bringing in more diverse crowds.“The fact that we can’t get everybody in the TCU community to come out is frustrating. We always get the minority side of TCU at our events,” she said. “We have an idea we want to implement where everyone brings friends of different ethnic groups or races to the events to increase the diversity in attendance.”Halfway through the event, students were taught how to play Kabaddi.Kabaddi is a traditional south Asian game that involves students working together to get past imaginary checkpoints.In addition to playing Kabaddi, students were served Indian style dishes.First year Pre-Business major Morgan Gunn said she wasn’t aware of TCU’s South Asian population and appreciated the opportunity to try food from a different culture.“I thought it was interesting. I didn’t even know we had South Asian students on campus,” she said. “I never try new food so it was really cool. I probably wouldn’t usually do something like that.”Stereotypes were the biggest issues SAICA President Akash Tyagi said his organization faces.“The biggest challenge we face in SAICA is breaking the stereotypes that people have about different cultures,” he said. “My role is to have events that can provide first hand knowledge to people who seek to be open minded.”With these types of events, Tyagi said he hopes to open student eyes to new things and connect them with others outside of their immediate circle.“I think the bigger reason why we have these types of events is to bring students closer to other kinds of people that they may or may not know,” he said. “These kinds of events bring different cultures closer together.”Jordan spoke on the importance of being committed when having student led events that focus on culture, race, and social issues.“We’re committed to communicating with each other, committed to making a difference, and committed to putting out quality events.” Linkedin Ernest Dominickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ernest-dominick/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Frogs for the Cure celebrate recent success Previous articleFort Worth Transportation Authority to present proposed recommendations to improve transitNext articleLive Coverage: A Global Impact on Healthcare Ernest Dominick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Ernest Dominickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ernest-dominick/ Twitter Botanic Garden to host 8th bi-annual butterfly exhibit ReddIt Fort Worth Botanic Garden holds grand opening for butterfly exhibit Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Ernest Dominickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ernest-dominick/ Ernest Dominick is a journalism major with a minor in general business.
