£1,000 to invest today! What are my options?

See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay £1,000 to invest today! What are my options? With global financial markets facing up to the coronavirus outbreak and an international recession possibly on the cards, it’s tempting for investors with a bit of spare cash to look to buy up stocks.Many central banks have now pledged to fight economic fallout. This may include short-term loans, asset purchases or possibly quantitative easing, so this has injected a little more certainty into the markets and the FTSE 350 has been rising again today.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…If you’re confident in what you’re buying and aware of the risks, then there may well be some value stocks to be had. However, I’m not sure that we’ve seen the bottom yet, and thus it may be premature to buy stocks today. However, it’s a good time to research and discover shares that are worth investing in over the coming weeks.Follow Warren Buffett’s leadWarren Buffett has decades of experience of buying shares in troubled times. I think his advice is worth heeding, particularly when the stock market looks a scary place.One of Buffett’s key principles is looking for businesses with intrinsic value. What this means is a company that won’t easily go bust because it plays a vital part in society. Examples that spring to mind include healthcare, utility companies, telecoms, defence contractors and energy companies. However, I don’t think it’s wise to believe all companies involved in these sectors will thrive. The price of oil has plummeted in recent weeks thanks to a global economic slowdown; plus there has been a reduction in international travel caused by the coronavirus, and increasing pressure from climate change activists. For this reason, I expect the smaller oil and gas companies to be at risk of failures or possibly takeover targets.There are businesses that are so well known in the homes of UK citizens, it’s difficult to imagine them ever going bust. This includes BT Group, Tesco, National Grid and The London Stock Exchange.Grow your £1kIf you have £1k to invest today, then I think an index fund is worth considering. £1k won’t go very far on individual stocks alone, so a fund gives you the chance to own a diversified selection of assets for your cash. If you’d prefer to own individual equities, a stock I like is Primary Health Properties (LSE:PHP). I chose it as my top UK stock for March as it has no obvious ties to China and being in the healthcare sector, it’s defensive.Part of the FTSE 250 index, this company invests in properties that it rents to various healthcare facilities in the UK and Ireland. It now has 485 properties in its portfolio, on long-term lease to GPs, government healthcare bodies and pharmacies.PHP’s latest full-year profit before tax was up 2.2% to £75.9m and its net rental income receivable rose 51% to £115.7m in 2019.Year-to-date, the PHP share price is down almost 6%, purely because of the market correction last week.Today it has a 4% dividend yield, which provides steady income potential. The net asset value per share is 101p, which means it’s priced at a premium of 32%, but considering it’s got a manageable level of debt and assets worth £2.3bn, I don’t think this is too high.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

What the players think about rugby’s biggest issues

first_imgThat English structure also includes a maximum of 30 full games for players, yet the majority view of those surveyed is that 21-25 is the optimum number.Former Wales and Lions captain Sam Warburton, who retired this year because he felt his body could no longer deliver the high standards he strived for, agrees on that point.“The game is okay, it’s the amount of games that is the issue,” he told The Ruck podcast. “Rugby is never going to be safe – people might not want to hear that but you can’t get 30 big blokes running around a field and make it safe. You can’t make a ruck perfectly safe or a tackle perfectly safe. But what you can change is the workload on players.“It’s more the volume that players are playing. On the Lions tour in 2017, some of the English guys were approaching 40 games – you can’t do that. I think 25 starts a season is ample.”Another common talking point in recent years has been the amount of contact training undertaken by teams. With the increase in physicality, more strain is put on players in games and training. It was a common theme in survey responses.“Uncontrolled contact in sessions is problematic,” said one player. Another said: “Contact at training, whether in a club or international set-up, needs to be limited by time. There is enough contact week to week in games, so I don’t see why there is any in training.” A third player added: “Training is sometimes like match intensity.”Interestingly, the NFL have established rules around training that limits the number of full-contact practice sessions in the regular season to 14, with 11 in the first 11 weeks, so a maximum of one a week. Team training is attended by independent observers to ensure these regulations are not breached.So should rugby introduce something similar? Adam Beard, who has worked in rugby as a strength and conditioning specialist for Wales and the Lions and is now director of high performance at Cleveland Browns in the NFL, believes that cutting contact training back too much could actually mean that players’ bodies aren’t prepared for matches.“It’s like UFC or boxing: you need contact, you need to prepare for contact,” says Beard. “These games are contact-orientated. We used to have a really big run-in for contact preparation for Wales. You would have a progression all the way through to bone-on-bone and some weeks we’d pull back, but we’d build it all the way through and guys’ bodies would be ready for that. It’s important for timing but also body conditioning. It’s a big thing, getting the body prepared.”International Rugby Players are working with World Rugby to assess training load and whether players would benefit from restrictions.It’s worth highlighting mental pressures as well as physical ones. Looking at the England structure from 2019-20 and those aforementioned breaks, Warburton insists it will still be hard to totally switch off in the middle of an intense season.“There might be breaks but it’s a long time mentally,” he said. “Even if you’re physically helping a player, you’re not helping a player emotionally and mentally. It’s a long time in competition.”The survey threw up similar concerns. One player said: “The season is too long mentally and physically.” Another said: “When you are on the fringe of your international side, doing the mental prep and playing limited minutes, then having to play in your break, it puts massive strains on relationships at home.”Change: Quins prop Joe Marler has retired from international rugby (Getty Images)You couldn’t describe Marler as a fringe international – he played 59 times for England between 2012 and 2018 – but the effect playing for his country had on his family life saw him call time on his Test career in September. How did that manifest itself?“I’d be at home in a pretty dark place, not talking, not interacting with the kids or the wife,” says the 28-year-old. “My wife would say, ‘Any danger of you being here with us?’“I’d be thinking about going away (with England) and having to leave Daisy and the kids. I’ve used the word anxiety because that’s how it felt. There’s a lot of pressure in any England environment and top-level elite rugby.”He admits that when England opened their autumn campaign against South Africa, he woke up wishing he was playing at Twickenham. “But I quickly realised I didn’t miss it enough to do everything in order to get to game day – the three weeks beforehand, the time away from home. I make sacrifices for my club, for the team, but I also get to come home each night.” Find out what Test stars think about workload, concussion, money, agents and international rugby What the players think about rugby’s biggest issuesPlayer welfare: two words that are now heard in rugby conversations almost as regularly as ‘try’ or ‘scrum’. Yet the people uttering the words are often in suits rather than kit, when surely it’s the opinions of the players themselves that are most important.That’s why Rugby World magazine teamed up with International Rugby Players, the global body that represents the game’s professionals, to find out what their members think about the sport’s biggest issues. We’ve previously reported on the men’s sevens survey and women’s survey; now it’s time for the verdict of the men’s 15-a-side players.More than 350 Test players from the 20 teams that will be involved at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, plus the other three nations involved in the repêchage and Romania, completed an anonymous survey on topics including workload, concussion, international rugby, agents and money.Here are their views, as published in Rugby World’s January 2019 edition…What the players think about rugby’s biggest issues: WORKLOAD“Is what we’re doing to our bodies sustainable?” That is just one of the comments from those surveyed regarding the physical and mental load placed on players in the modern game.It echoes the sentiments of Jonny May in the December issue of Rugby World, the Leicester and England wing saying: “I suspect that professional careers will grow shorter as players place increased loads on their bodies. The athletes will continue to get better, more powerful and more highly-tuned, but it will come at the price of not being able to do it for as long.”People talk about how professional players are so much fitter and faster, bigger and stronger than the amateur era but, as May says, at what cost?With improved physical specimens playing more high-intensity matches, players’ bodies are sure to feel the effects, whether in the long or short term. A third of the players surveyed by International Rugby Players missed six or more matches last season due to injury.Even more shocking is that 45% of players – that’s basically one out of every two – admit to being pressured by coaches to play or train when not fully fit. Players often talk of carrying niggles throughout a season and with so much riding on matches it’s easy to understand why coaches want their star performers on the pitch, but players’ health should always be the top priority.Clubs and governing bodies continually say player welfare is of the greatest importance, yet these results would suggest otherwise. Players should not have to train or play under duress, when doing so could cause more long-term damage. As one player surveyed said: “Players need to be protected from under-pressure coaching staff.”International Rugby Players chief executive Omar Hassanein says: “Despite the constant reminder that player welfare is the game’s number one priority, it’s hugely worrying that a large amount of players have felt pressured to play when not fully fit. This leads to a spike in injury rates and we know from the survey that the biggest mental pressure comes from being injured.”While 33% of players feel matches played is what has the most impact on physical workload in a season, it’s interesting that 30% cited the lack of recovery time, with this particularly high among Tier Two players.People often praise the Irish system, where players are centrally contracted and rested at points in the season. The new season structure in England from 2019-20 will introduce in-season breaks for players, too, in an attempt to address the issue, but that plan still includes only two weeks of complete rest in the off-season.Harlequins prop Joe Marler raised concerns about the new structure when it was first announced, but having spoken to his clubmate and RPA chairman Mark Lambert, he has revised his opinions – at least on some points.“I think it’s good generally but there’s still work to do for England players,” he says. “The league is asking them to be available for more high-intensity Premiership games, to go toe-to-toe in full-on games as well as all the England games. So that needs to be looked at.” Conversations around mental health are a lot more prevalent these days, not only in rugby but the world as a whole, with the sport’s player associations providing support programmes in this area. However, if changes in the game, such as the length of the season or number of Tests, would also help inthis area, they must be addressed. 1. Introduction2. Page 23.

The profile describing the diocese and suffragan position, as well as forms to propose a candidate and the candidate application package, may be found here.

It is composed of some 66,000 members, 72 deacons and 600 priests. It stretches from Staten Island to Sullivan County and from Wall Street to the Catskills. The diocese encompasses 10 counties that include some of the most densely populated urban landscape in the country and some of the least populated; some of the wealthiest parishes in the Episcopal Church, as well as parishes in the poorest communities. Most importantly, it is inhabited by children of God who are seeking a faithful pastor to join the people and clergy of the diocese and our diocesan bishop in the work that God has given us to do.”“We bid your prayers both for the diocese and for those who will be in discernment to determine if this is the vocation to which God has called them.”Members of the Committee to Elect a Bishop are: Susan Heath, the Rev.

The Episcopal Church is in steep decline. Parishes are closing, church staffs are being reduced, the average age of clergy and the pews is increasing. Instead of waiting for clergy to send in “application packages,” the Diocese of New York could be searching throughout the Church for someone who can help congregations find their way back to strength and health. Often overlooked in the search process is this cardinal fact: demonstrated results are the only reliable guide to claims made by or about a particular applicant.

Marcos Ayerza plays for both teams as Argentina beat Leicester Tigers in tryfest

first_imgTuesday Sep 8, 2015 Marcos Ayerza plays for both teams as Argentina beat Leicester Tigers in tryfest Argentina scored nine tries to beat Leicester Tigers 55-34 in a Rugby World Cup warm-up match, that also served as a testimonial  for Marcos Ayerza. The veteran prop played for both teams on the day, much to the delight of the Welford Road faithful.Both sides ran the ball from all corners and there were some fantastic tries scored, as well as a few thumping tackles, as can be seen in these highlights from Leicester Tigers. The match was only televised in Argentina, so this inhouse footage is much appreciated.Ayerza represented the Tigers for a mammoth nine years, seeing him play 214 games and winning four Premiership titles along the way. The 32-year-old started at loosehead prop for Los Pumas, before ending the match amongst club teammates, in the Tigers’ front row.“Marcos is a fantastic player, one of the world’s best props,” said Richard Cockerill. “He’s a true gentleman, he’s a one-club man, he loves his rugby and Leicester Tigers. I have nothing but admiration for him.“He was very emotional at the end, he prides himself on his family and his rugby, and Leicester is part of his extended family now. You like to see that emotional attachment with the club, I think that is important.”One of the best tries of the day was scored by Tigers academy wing Paolo Odogwu, who impressed coach Cockerill. “Paolo’s try was as good as you will see from a young wing.“He’s come through our system at the academy, he’s had a first opportunity today and he has taken his try very well. Finishing from 60 metres on your debut is a good start!”Argentina face New Zealand in their opening game of the World Cup, in Pool C.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Argentina Related Articles 30 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Emotive video shows unbelievable quarantine… 90 WEEKS AGO Lopez drop goal the key as France beat Argentina… 134 WEEKS AGO France starting to show good form as Teddy… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The functions and facade also follow this shaping. The main living areas with huge openings were placed on the sunny south side, mostly bedrooms with medium size windows towards east and west, and service areas with the main entrance on the north.Save this picture!© Balázs DanyiThe building mass was pushed up to the north corner as much as possible, so to create a huge intimate garden facing the main living areas. To leave a minimum ‘scar’ on the green surface the garage entrance was positioned as close to the road as possible. The compact mass also helps to place more of the program area on the penthouse level, as it was a strong client requirement.Save this picture!© Balázs DanyiSave this picture!© Balázs DanyiBecause of the diversity of shape and huge randomized openings on the facade the building was made of in-situ reinforced concrete structure, behaving as a solid concrete ‘box’. The staircase block was placed in the center of the building where daylight is limited and can only be transported through the skylight. This central arrangement gives the optimal entry points for all the flats, where the public and private functions can be reached separately. The apartments were designed to have the possibility to be joined with the neighbour, turning the 5 flats into 3 condos.Save this picture!© Balázs DanyiSave this picture!© Balázs DanyiThe fine-grained, light-reflecting ceramic cladding, together with the façade elements of the same color, gently encircles the solid building mass. The homogeneous façade and the robust geometry blends together with the vegetation of the garden, thus continuing the inseparable tradition of Buda architecture – the common role of nature with architecture.Save this picture!© Balázs DanyiProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse and the River / After PartySelected ProjectsEditionX Store / StudioACSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Budapest, Stromfeld Aurél út 43, 1124 HungaryLocation to be used only as a reference.

Advertisement Tagged with: Digitalcenter_img The first sites selected will cover the public and private sectors, but no mention was made of voluntary sector sites. The sites will be tested for basic compliance with recognised industry accessibility standards. In addition, 50 disabled people will be involved in in-depth testing of a representative sample of these sites for practical usability. The research supporting this Formal Investigation will be conducted in collaboration with a team from the Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design at City University London, led by Professor Helen Petrie.Speaking today on the announcement of the Formal Investigation Bert Massie, Chairman of the DRC, said:“Organisations which offer goods and services on the Web already have a legal duty to make their sites accessible. The DRC is committed to enforcing these obligations but it is also determined to help site owners and developers tackle the barriers to inclusive web design.”The findings of the investigation are expected by the end of 2003.

Editor Andrzej Marek freed on order of the constitutional court

first_imgNews PolandEurope – Central Asia Poland’s new social media law puts freedom of expression at risk, RSF warns to go further Organisation Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release today of Andrzej Marek, the editor of the regional weekly Wiesci Polickie. The constitutional court finally decided to suspend implementation of his prison sentence for libel and set him free. Reporters Without Borders hails this decision by the authorities and hopes Poland will henceforth behave in a way more conducive to free expression. Reporters Without Borders condemned as “shameful” the imprisonment on 16 January of Andrzej Marek, editor of the regional weekly Wiesci Polickie in Szczecin in the north-west.The Polish journalist published an article in February 2001 headlined “Promotion of scheming” in which he exposed a corrupt official in the city of Police. Marek was sentenced in November 2002 then, on appeal, in November 2003, to a three-month prison sentence for defamation, suspended on condition he apologised to the official who had laid the complaint against him.The journalist refused to apologise and his sentence was suspended after a plea was entered for a presidential pardon in September 2004. This did not succeed and the journalist has now been ordered to serve his time, nearly five years after the event.“This imprisonment is shameful for a country like Poland, which has just joined the European Union and which is the sole member state to impose prison sentences on journalists for offences of opinion,” said Reporters Without Borders.“Andrzej Marek should be immediately released. We once again call on President Lech Kaczynski to pardon this journalist who has only done his duty in informing the public,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.The organisation made a previous request to the new Polish head of state on 29 December 2005 to grant Marek the pardon he should have had under the previous presidency of Aleksander Kwasniewski.
