Regular readers of the Fool UK will know that we consider the Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) a great way of saving towards retirement and making the most of the returns from investing in shares. Indeed, I’ve previously written about how this kind of account might help you reach the magic million-pound mark quicker than the (similarly-loved) Stocks and Shares ISA.That’s why, today, I’m taking a closer look at a big development: the arrival of Vanguard on the scene.  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…Van…who?For those unfamiliar with the company, Vanguard is among the world’s biggest providers of passive funds — those that seek to track the market return rather than beat it. Right now, it has assets of $5.6trn (yes, trillion) under management.Part of the reason Vanguard is so popular is the low fees it charges. To track the FTSE 100 index, for example, you’ll be charged an ongoing fee of 0.09%. Compare this with the typical charge levelled by professional money managers of between 1% and 2% on some active funds and it’s easy to see why inflows into the Pennsylvania-based firm have rocketed over the last decade or so. The less you shell out in fees, the more profit you retain, even if the aforementioned managers outperform (most don’t).  So is this SIPP any good?The newly-launched SIPP is certainly cheap — Vanguard has said that it will charge an account fee of 0.15% to holders.The fee will also be capped at a £375. So, even if someone already has an ISA and/or a general investment account with the company (both launched in 2017), they’ll never pay more than this amount in total if they also sign up for the SIPP. To invest, those holding the account will need to put up a minimum of £100 a month (before tax relief is calculated) or a lump sum of £500 or more. While calculating pension costs can get a bit fiddly (depending on how much money you have, the investments you hold and how often you buy and sell), Vanguard’s offering does look cheaper compared to its rivals. Market leader Hargreaves Lansdown, for example, has an administration charge of 0.45%.It will be fascinating to see whether this is a catalyst for other providers to lower their fees. If it does, investors only stand to benefit. What’s the catch?For me, a slight issue with Vanguard’s SIPP offering is that it requires the holder to invest in — and solely in — funds that it runs. Then again, I don’t see this as a problem for a lot of people, particularly those that aren’t really interested in following the progress of their investments (which, ironically, can often lead to the best returns) and aren’t looking to put their money in anything remotely ‘exotic’. What’s more, Vanguard’s selection already runs to 77 funds including the one-stop-shop Target Retirement and Lifestrategy products — all of which give instant and sufficient diversification to the holder.One other thing worth knowing is that the SIPP is currently only available to those in pre-retirement. In other words, anyone wanting to take money out of their account won’t be able to do so, at least until Vanguard makes this possible in the 2020/21 tax year.Caveats aside, I suspect this new relatively low-cost account will prove very popular with those wishing to get their retirement savings in order.  Saving for retirement?

Stock market crash: FTSE 100 falls to a 6-month low. I’d buy these UK shares now

See all posts by Manika Premsingh Today is turning out to be a very bad day for the FTSE 100 index, indeed. It has fallen to its lowest level in more than half a year. While trading is still in progress as I write, I doubt if the end-of-day levels will be very different from its sub-5,600 reading right now. The index was last at these levels in early April, just a few weeks after the spectacular stock market crash in March. But we’ve learnt much since, and I think there’s a lot to unpack in this one number today. Here are a few things that come to my mind.A stock market crash is a buying opportunityOne, I think with the benefit of hindsight we can confidently say that it’s not a catastrophe. If anything, it’s an opportunity that we at the Motley Fool have emphasised over and over. Soon after the crash, the index started making steady gains again. The biggest gainers were stocks that have benefited from the lockdown as expected and vice-versa. If the gainers have become too pricey to fit into your investment style now, I suggest that it’s a good idea to look at them again. 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…There are at least three stocks I like, which are at least 4% down today. These are Johnson Matthey,  JD Sports Fashion and Smith & Nephew in the order of decline so far. Johnson Matthey, which among other things, is now producing components for electric vehicles’ batteries, saw a strong share price comeback following the stock market crash. I reckon it will start rising soon. JD Sports Fashion has doubled its share price since the crash. Smith & Nephew suffered too, as elective surgeries dwindled in the lockdown. But with ageing populations, demand for its hip and knee replacement devices will grow over time. Markets pick the winnersTwo, the latest decline is a ‘slow burn’ compared to the sharp stock market crash of March, where the FTSE 100 index fell more than 10% in a day. On average, the index has lost value month on month since July. In some sense, the market is doing investors a favour by picking out winners for them. I’m taking a close look at stocks that have thrived in this time and that can continue to do so in the next two to three years. My vote goes to the likes of Ocado and Rightmove. Both are pricey right now, but they are also in the high-growth, e-commerce sector.A time for contrarian stocksThree, I think that we can make some judicious contrarian buys too, now. Stocks in hospitality, travel, tourism and related industries have taken quite the beating. But their stock prices have dropped to such ridiculous lows, that investing an amount I’m prepared to lose is becoming a less risky decision by the day. IAG is an example of such a share, especially today. center_img Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 28th October, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

These cheap shares have soared almost 40% in a month. I’d buy them today!

With trading heading towards a close on the final day of November, what an amazing month it’s been. First, Joe Biden’s US election win gave stocks an early lift. Then news of three highly effective Covid-19 vaccines launched share prices into the stratosphere. As I write, the FTSE 100 index has soared by 765 points (13.7%) in November — a record monthly return. Likewise, US stocks have been buoyant this month, with the S&P 500 index leaping by over 350 points (10.8%). Yet the Footsie has shed 1,200 points in 2020, leaving it down almost a sixth (15.9%). That’s why I believe there are still cheap shares hiding in plain sight in the index.Value investing still worksAfter exaggerated reports of its death, value investing came roaring back in November. As investors switched from high-priced, fast-growing tech stocks into economically sensitive sectors, cheap shares in banks, energy companies, and other old-economy industries had a bumper month. Jeremy Grantham, co-founder of asset management giant GMO, said a very powerful line this month. He warned, “The one reality you can never change is that a higher-priced asset will always produce a lower return than a lower-priced asset”. I agree, which is why I buy cheap shares rather than popular stocks. After all, the higher the price you pay, the lower your future returns will be. That’s why I’ll be a value investor for life.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…Cheap shares: L&G looks good to meUntil they bounced back hard this month, Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) shares were having a rotten 2020. Before Covid-19 crashed markets, shares in the widely admired life assurer and asset manager were doing well. At their 52-week peak, they hit 324.7p on 13 December last year. Three months later, during the spring market meltdown, they crashed by 57.5% to a bargain 138p on 19 March.After bouncing back until early June, these cheap shares crumbled again. At 184.5p on 29 October, I said L&G stock was a compelling buy for value investors. So it proved to be. Today, as I write, L&G’s share price is 255.7p, up more than 71p (38.6%) since 29 October. That’s an excellent return in just 31 days, but I expect more from this great British business and its cheap shares.I’d keep buying into this quality companyAlthough it’s been a terrible year for the global economy, L&G has survived much worse, including two world wars and the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. That’s because this venerable British institution’s pedigree stretches all the way back to 1836. Today, L&G has powerful positions in UK protection products and savings, managing over £1trn of assets for more than 10 million customers worldwide. That’s a good spread of risk — and L&G’s fortress-like balance sheet is packed with a range of quality assets.Today, L&G shares are still fairly cheap, but not as ridiculously low-priced as they were in, say, March and October. They trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 12.5 and an earnings yield of 8%. Also, they offer a very enticing dividend yield of 6.9% a year, more than double the 3.2% on offer from the wider FTSE 100. That’s why I’d buy this quality stock today, ideally inside an ISA, to enjoy decades of delicious tax-free dividends and capital gains! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Cliff D’Arcy | Monday, 30th November, 2020 | More on: LGEN NWG Enter Your Email Address 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.

Georgia game has become a knockout match, says Argentina’s Lobbe

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “I played against him when he was at Montpellier and it’s easier when you have him on your side. He’s dominant and pushes you forward,” Lobbe added. “He works very, very hard and just loves playing rugby.“He’s a very good player but we saw against Tonga, their whole team committed in defence. They have a good squad and a very good lineout. There’s a lot of things to think about when it comes to Georgia – Mamuka is one of them but we need to focus on the whole team.” Argentina’s Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe is not oblivious to the threat posed by Friday’s opponents Georgia Georgia’s victory over Tonga came off the back of a dominant display up front, with captain Mamuka Gorgodze putting in a man-of-the-match performance.And Toulon’s Lobbe knows just what a force his domestic teammate can be but knows the Eurasian side are not just relying on one player, with Georgia possessing a scrum that can more than match Argentina’s own. TAGS: Georgia When Argentina face Georgia at Kingsholm today (Friday) they know that a defeat will leave their hopes of progressing from Pool C in tatters.Defeat against reigning champions New Zealand leaves Argentina pointless and another loss to Georgia would leave the Pumas needing three wins from their final three games to have any chance of making the quarter finals.On paper it should be an easy win for the South American side, with Argentina ranked five places above their opponents in World Rugby’s rankings, but Georgia showed how strong their team is with an impressive win over Tonga on opening weekend.“For us it has become a knockout match. If we win, we stay in the competition – if we lose, it’s all over. It’s that simple,” Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe told ESPN. Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe last_img read more

Anglicans reach out to victims of Fort McMurray wildfire

first_img Rector Collierville, TN By Tali Folkins and André Forget Posted May 5, 2016 Submit a Press Release Rector Knoxville, TN Several of Fort McMurray’s residential neighborhoods have been devastated by the fire. Photo: Instagram/ben3bennet via Anglican Journal Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Fort McMurray’s official population is often given at 60,000, but its unofficial population includes tens of thousands more because of the city’s many temporary residents, Lawton said.Two main highways lead from the city—one to the north and one to the south. Tens of thousands of evacuees are reported to have fled in both directions.Gas shortages, gridlocked highways and the proximity of the fire itself to the southbound highway—shut down for a few hours on Tuesday when the fire reached it—have all caused extreme stress to evacuees, Lawton said.The Rev. Dane Neufeld, priest at All Saints, said the speed and power of the wildfire left him speechless.“Yesterday I was at the church, and went for coffee around 12:30 and came back, and the sky was blue, and then it felt like there was a storm cloud coming overhead,” he said. “I went down to see what was going on, and we saw the smoke coming up over Abasand, and so we watched it for a few minutes, and I guess I figured I should get home. I started biking home, and across the bridge—by the time I got to the bridge, it was raining cinders and the whole horizon was on fire, basically.”Some panic broke out as people realized the urgency of the situation, he said.Neufeld said he and his family initially had to flee north, where there are few communities other than mining camps, because the highway south had been closed.“We have four kids, and we have twin babies, so it wasn’t the most relaxing ride,” he said. “We’re all driving away, and in the rear-view mirror the city is on fire and you are wondering what is going to happen.“It was crazy.”Neufeld said he’d heard a number of families in the parish had lost their homes, with others suspecting but still unsure.“Our home seems to be fine at present, but it’s another hot day with low humidity…so we don’t know,” he said.As far as he knew, Neufeld says, the city’s two Anglican churches are still standing.The Rev. Lesley Wheeler-Dame, priest at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Boyle, said she had driven northward toward Fort McMurray on Wednesday morning to bring gas and food to an Anglican family left stranded on the highway, and was struck by the sheer size of the exodus—and by the plain evidence of the inferno.Fuel shortages left many cars stranded on the highway south of Fort McMurray. Photo: Instagram/mikemackenzie23 via Anglican Journal“It was heartbreaking to see the line of traffic, and the slow, slow speed at which they were moving, and the ash all over people’s vehicles. That was really sad to see—it broke my heart,” she said. “Noticing the fear on some faces—not knowing where they’re going, for some.”Some families have been divided by the fire. Wheeler-Dame said she herself was hosting a Lutheran pastor from Fort McMurray, who had fled south while her husband, in the rush to evacuate, had had to flee north of the city.Many other Anglicans in nearby parishes, she said, are also offering to host evacuees or are otherwise helping with relief efforts.“What was absolutely remarkable…was how people’s generosity came to the fore” once the disaster hit, Lawton said. Facebook pages to help victims were set up, and many people helped evacuees by driving out to give them extra gas and food, he said.“My sister was evacuating, and they were among those who ran out of gas partway, and while they were waiting somebody stopped to see if they were OK and gave them water and granola bars,” he said.The disaster will continue to mean suffering for many people long after the fire is put out, he said.“People will need, eventually, everything,” he said. “They’re going to have to decide if they’re going back—that’s where their jobs have been, so if they go back, they don’t have a home to go back to and nothing to put in it, so they will need literally everything.”In addition to housing and pastoral care, some people will likely need help with post-traumatic stress caused by the disaster, he said.“The only thing we have to [help us] get our heads around this is a war situation, where an entire city is destroyed—that’s the closest thing I can think of,” he said.

Photo: Instagram/stewartstrength via Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal] As accounts of chaos and destruction emerge from firestorm-stricken Fort McMurray, Alberta, Anglicans across Canada are responding with help including financial aid, practical assistance and prayers.“We’ve had offers of prayers and support from across the country,” Bishop Fraser Lawton, of the diocese of Athabasca, said  May 4. Parishes in the nearby towns of Lac la Biche, Athabasca and Boyle were all trying to reach out to evacuees and others affected by the disaster, he said.The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) announced May 4 it would provide financial help, in as-yet unspecified amounts, to the dioceses of both Athabasca, in which Fort McMurray falls, and Edmonton, which has been offering assistance. It is also accepting donations toward relief efforts.“PWRDF will respond through local Anglican channels as the needs become evident in the next few days,” PWRDF said in a prepared statement.Also Wednesday, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, sent out a call to prayer for the people of the stricken city.“This is a terrifying time for the residents,” Hiltz said. “I think particularly of how stressful this is for those who are critically ill and those who tend them under these very difficult circumstances.”May 3, authorities issued a mandatory evacuation order for Fort McMurray after a wildfire that had been burning to the southwest, fanned by growing winds, suddenly began to approach and then engulf the city. As of press time Wednesday, at least 1,600 homes and other buildings were reported to have been destroyed, with more destruction feared as the fire “searched” for more fuel in as-yet-untouched neighbourhoods.“This fire will look for them,” Fort McMurray fire chief Darby Allen said at a news conference Wednesday, “and it will find them, and it will try to take them.”As of press time, no deaths or serious injuries had been reported as a result of the fire.Reached by the Anglican Journal on his cell phone on the road from the stricken city, Compton Vigilance, a parishioner of Fort McMurray’s All Saints Anglican Church, said he heard that, after he’d left, smoke alarms had gone off in his house in the city’s Abasand district. He suspected the fire had consumed it and the entire neighborhood.“I’m 90% sure that where I live, Abasand, is probably totaled—it’s probably gone,” he said.“When the adrenaline was flowing yesterday, I didn’t feel anything,” he said. “But this morning…after getting phone calls and texts, it hit us, and with that, we are so thankful that the Lord has given us the opportunity to still be able to serve him and also to help others.“But it is devastating, very devastating.”Vigilance said he had been living in the city since 1979.

The concrete kitchen worktop floats on smokey Farrow & Ball ‘Railings’ cabinetry, met by microcement rendering to the upper walls. A hidden cellar door leads down to a utility space to keep functional clutter out of sight.Save this picture!© Nick DeardenThe heaviness of the concrete is balanced by the use of soft oak joinery and a large skylight above the kitchen island. Simple oak sash windows draw in yet more light in a nod to the traditional glazing of Victorian-era terraces, and extend the width of the kitchen onto the leafy side return passage.Save this picture!© Nick DeardenSave this picture!© Nick DeardenChallenged with an oppressive ceiling height in the existing kitchen, DGN Studio lowered the floor level by half a metre and opted for an expressed timber ceiling structure to give the new extension the best possible light and height. The lowered floor level is expressed structurally as a concrete tray from which three concrete columns rise to support a T-shaped steel frame which in turn carries the upper level of the house.Save this picture!© Nick DeardenThe internal concrete tray extends into the garden where the concrete retaining walls, plinths & steps form benches and informal seating.Save this picture!© Nick DeardenUpstairs DGN Studio applied a lighter touch, removing a disused chimney breast and reorganising the bathroom into a functional, well-lit private space. The bathroom window previously looked into the neighbouring shower, so DGN Studio shifted this across and added a skylight over the bath to reintroduce light and privacy for both the clients and neighbours.Save this picture!© Nick DeardenThe architects have played with depth and functionality on the tight urban site. The interior concrete benches are utilised outside too; the sash windows perforate the long, low concrete forms creating intermittent nook seating all along the side return and rear patio.Save this picture!© Nick DeardenProject gallerySee allShow lessSou Fujimoto Architects Design “Garden in a Box” as Shenzhen’s New Exhibition HallArchitecture News7N Architects Selected by Network Rail and RIBA to Shape Britain’s Future RailwaysArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeDGN studioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionLondon Borough of HackneyOn InstagramOn FacebookUnited KingdomPublished on May 12, 2021Cite: “Concrete Plinth House / DGN studio” 12 May 2021.

Stacked House / Studio Lotus

Daylight, ventilation, interconnectedness and privacy inform the design of this house by Studio Lotus in a dense part of the Panchsheel Enclave neighborhood in New Delhi. Sited on a small one-side-open plot of 200 sq.m area, Studio Lotus has designed this house as two interconnected duplex apartments for an extended family of six; the client, his wife and two children in one apartment, and his elderly parents in the second apartment.Save this picture!© Andre J FanthomeSave this picture!Plan – First floorThe west-facing plot is 9m x 24m deep and is enclosed by buildings on three sides with no setbacks, with the narrower 9m face opening towards an 8m wide feeder road. The team took on the challenge of creating an airy, day-lit sanctuary that would remain naturally illuminated, with all rooms cross-ventilated throughout the day despite the restrictive site conditions.Save this picture!© Andre J FanthomeThere was also the desire to create a strong visual connection between the different units to facilitate a sense of connected living for the family units. This became the starting point for the design exercise that evolved into a series of vertically stacked volumes– the four-storey home is expressed as two staggered duplexes around a central courtyard and a small rear courtyard that is staggered in section, allowing light and ventilation deep into the lower floors. The street-facing west façade, the offset central courtyard, and the diagonally placed third court form the three vertical spines around which all the rooms find their rightful place.Save this picture!© Andre J FanthomeThe west front comprises the living rooms and the master bedrooms of the two units, opening through the courtyard into the rear volume, which houses the dining and the kitchen on the lower floors and bedrooms on the upper floors respectively. Multiple balconies and walkways connect these living spaces, creating a characteristic staggering of the floor plates that articulates the internal courtyard. The primary central courtyard has been designed as a triple-height light colored wall to act as a reflector for the South light into the internal spaces that are staggered around it. The courtyard is also flanked by verandahs that are outdoor extensions to life within the house and a place for different family units to be able to chat across from the space they occupy, like in an old fashioned aangan.Save this picture!DiagramThe intervention serves to activate the entire vertical volume inside with fresh air and ambient lighting. To further aid ventilation and diffusion of natural light in the living spaces, the linear stairwell connecting all floors has been placed along the southern façade, owing to it receiving the lowest levels of illumination and a small sky-lit courtyard has been created at the south-east corner of the site. Views of the tree-lined street have enabled the studio to design the external glazing in accordance with the ‘split’ within the house–the north-western façade has a glazed surface, while the south-western face features exposed brickwork.Save this picture!© Andre J FanthomeTo maximize the heights within this tight space, structural engineer BL Manjunath came up with an innovative hybrid structural system, comprising of a modular metal grid of beams and columns with concrete slabs poured within the frame, accommodating the beams within the slab. This maximizes heights and creates seamless sightlines with no visual obstruction and exposes the structural system–making this small home a frugal yet finely crafted expression of its materials.Save this picture!SectionThe design employs an earthy material palette to elevate the tactile experience of the shell complementing the open, airy spaces. White plastered walls, exposed metal work and white terrazzo flooring populate this shell, facilitating the overarching intent of crafting light and roomy volumes. Subverting the archetype of poorly-lit row-houses characteristic of such dense neighborhoods, the design of Stacked House proposes an alternative morphology for residential developments in Indian cities–one that borrows from traditional building patterns as much as it does from modern technological innovation.Save this picture!© Andre J FanthomeProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Sumiregaoka / Design Associates NakamuraSelected ProjectsJW Marriott Hotel / GenslerSelected Projects Share MEP Consultant: Antrix Construction “COPY” Stacked House / Studio Lotus Structural: Photographs:  Andre J Fanthome Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Year:  2019 Baleshwar Mondal Area:  220 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Manjunath BL Interior Contractor: Photographs Projects Houses CopyAbout this officeStudio LotusOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew DelhiStudio LotusOn FacebookIndiaPublished on May 25, 2021Cite: “Stacked House / Studio Lotus” 24 May 2021.
