At present, tribal casinos are only permitted to offer slot machines, lottery games and banking and percentage card games.Read the full story on iGB North America. 10th January 2020 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

Stock market recovery: I’d buy these 5 FTSE 100 shares today to achieve financial freedom

first_img Enter Your Email Address Harvey Jones | Monday, 30th November, 2020 You might fancy this stock. 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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar We are still only in the early stages of the post-coronavirus stock market recovery. With the FTSE 100 standing at 6350, it is more than 1,000 points below its 2020 starting position. This leaves plenty of scope for growth in 2021, provided those vaccines work.I’m under no illusions, the stock market recovery will be bumpy. Millions of jobs are surviving on government support. When furlough ends in the spring, we are likely to face an unemployment shock. That will feed into the rest of the economy. At times, 2021 could feel much worse than this year.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…Despite these concerns, I’m still buying shares today, because my investment horizon is a minimum 15 years, not the next 15 months. Over such a lengthy period, I believe UK shares will beat almost every other asset class, as they have done in the past. You have to choose wisely, though, to maximise your returns. The FTSE 100 is fighting backWhen picking out five FTSE 100 shares to play the stock market recovery, my first thought was to buy an airline. My second thought was it’s too risky, as their debts continue to mount. I have therefore plucked a stock from another embattled sector, banking. My choice here is Barclays, which has a diversified income stream, with its investment bank doing particularly well lately. Crucially, it is also well capitalised. Strict post-financial crisis regulation has served the banking sector well.Next, I would buy household goods giant Unilever. Frankly, I haven’t seen a time when I wouldn’t buy this FTSE 100 stock, which enjoys strong demand for its range of branded products. I’m expecting steady capital growth and dividend income over the years ahead.I favour credit rating specialist Experian as another good long-term buy and hold, as it should benefit from growing global demand for its information services. Profits have been hit by the lockdown, and may stay low in the short term as banks carry out fewer credit checks with people reluctant to borrow. It’ll bounce back, though, and I’d buy it ahead of the next phase of the stock market recovery.I’m buying now before the stock market recoveryThis year has shown the importance of having exposure to the defensive healthcare sector, and here I would buy AstraZeneca. Its vaccine plans suffered a slight setback, but I’d take advantage of the subsequent share price dip. The AstraZeneca share price is actually down 10% in the last six months, but its long-term income and growth prospects look solid to me.My final pick for the stock market recovery is Schroders. Any asset manager that can grind its way through a tough year like this one and still increase its assets under management deserves our respect.Another attraction of these five FTSE 100 stocks is that with the exception of Barclays, all pay dividends (I’m sure Barclays will be back, shortly). Unilever yields 3.11%, Experian 1.40%, AstraZeneca 2.76%, and Schroders 3.52%. You can find higher yields but these look sustainable to me, with plenty of scope for progression, too. Now roll on the stock market recovery.

The conversion has been made in order to change an old building with a simple cellar and ten very small rooms to a functional cabin. The owners wanted to retain the traditional and representative facade towards the road and other settlement in the village, however, they wished a more open aspect towards the fjord and mountains. The original building comprised a mix of building materials and included both vertical and horizontal panelling. A large glass panel has now been included in the south-east wall, such that the new kitchen has a completely open aspect to the views in this direction. The south and east facades were previously a collage of materials and colors which the new glass panel is now a part of.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe top of the glass panel extends up past an existing low paneled wall in the loft, such that the woodwork absorbs warmth and sun-rays penetrate between the panels.Save this picture!SectionA new low window has also been mounted in the bedroom to allow views when lying in bed. When standing the view is of the grass fields outside. Internally only the bedroom has been preserved, whilst the majority of the remaining internal walls have been removed, such that the loft and ground floor have been combined to make one airy space. A tiled area with underfloor heating has been included in the floor to allow for drying of wet shoes. A new wind membrane has been include in the walls in order to reduce heat loss. A wooden roof has been placed over the existing corrugated iron roof.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe result has been better than our expectations. The harmony in the east facade works well in spite of the different windows. The choice and composition of materials and color functions well.Towards the west the original facade has been preserved but includes a simple, covered shelter such that equipment and clothing can be kept dry and one achieves an extra outside room.Save this picture!© Tom AugerProject gallerySee allShow lessUpcoming App Promises to Create Basic 3D Models of Existing Spaces in 1 MinuteArchitecture NewsRussian Monastery of St. Georg / Tchoban Voss ArchitektenSelected Projects Sharecenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Save this picture!© Tom Auger+ 15 Share Norway CopyAbout this officeRever & Drage ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEidsvågNorwayPublished on April 30, 2017Cite: “Boggestranda / Rever & Drage Architects” 30 Apr 2017.

The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh further noted that if the said order is not complied with, the Principal Secretary (Law) of GNCTD will be summoned on the next date is hearing. The order has come in a bunch of writ petitions moved by the Bar Council of Delhi seeking a direction to the Delhi Government to implement the CM Advocates Welfare Scheme, especially during the taxing times of COVID19 pandemic. BCD has claimed that the Delhi Government should obtain the insurance policies of all the registered advocates who are 29,098 in number from insurance companies and the policies should then be forwarded to the said advocates. In the last hearing, the Delhi Government submitted that the Notice Inviting Tenders (NIT) was published on June 25 after consulting the Chairman of the BCD, Mr KC Mittal. After issuance of the NIT, a pre-bidding meeting was conducted with the BCD Chairman and the insurance companies wherein certain suggestions were made to amend the NIT. The same was done by issuing a corrigendum to the original NIT. Senior Advocate Kailash Vasdev, on the other hand, had submitted that the Delhi Government is making deliberate attempts to delay the process of providing insurance to the lawyers. Senior Advocate Amarjit Singh Chandiok, who appeared for one of the Petitioners, had submitted that an important feature of Place of Practice (Verification) Rules, 2015, is that it is the `place of practice’, which entitles an advocate to seek registration under the local Bar Council, and not the place of residence. Therefore, Mr Chandiok had argued, that the distinction, which is sought to be carved between advocates, who are residents of Delhi and those who are not residents of Delhi, for the purpose of extending the scheme, would be completely unlawful and untenable. While noting that there should be no delay in implementing the scheme for at least those lawyers who have already registered, the court had said: ‘GNCTD will fix the opening and closing dates for bids before August 07. Subsequently, GNCTD will access all the bids and award the tender to the successful bidder. Thereafter, the final contract will be finalised under the aegis of the Technical Evaluation Committee. After the final contract is processed, the insurance company will issue policies to the lawyers the premiums for which will be paid by the Delhi Government.’ On the issue of extending the scheme to NCR lawyers, the court took into consideration the submission made by Senior Advocate Rajiv Nayyar who said that he will take up this issue internally with the authorities. While noting that if no favourable decision is taken for NCR lawyers, the court will hear their plea on the next date, the matter got adjourned till August 28. Next Storylast_img

Georgia Coast Guard to Get New Ship Maintenance Facility

first_img View post tag: New View post tag: coast View post tag: News by topic Industry news Ambassador Bass and Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Zaza Gogava broke ground on a U.S.-funded Georgia Coast Guard ship maintenance facility near Poti harbor. Georgia Coast Guard ship maintenance facility estimated at $4 million is part of a $10 million package of assistance provided by the U.S. Export Control and Border Security​ (EXBS) program to the Georgian Government. Ambassador Bass spoke about the significance of the U.S. assistance to Georgia in enhancing its border security. The U.S. aid comes at a time when Georgia’s coastal cities are experiencing a steady increase in maritime trade and tourism requiring increased Coast Guard patrols. The U.S. Government through the EXBS program helps the Georgian Coast Guard sustain its ability to quickly and efficiently respond to incidents at sea for the benefit and safety of Georgia’s citizens and international visitors. The assistance demonstrates the commitment of the U.S. to Georgia to help it enhance its security.[mappress]Source: usembassy, September 8, 2011; Georgia Coast Guard to Get New Ship Maintenance Facility View post tag: to View post tag: Guard Back to overview,Home naval-today Georgia Coast Guard to Get New Ship Maintenance Facility View post tag: Georgiacenter_img September 8, 2011 View post tag: Naval View post tag: maintenance View post tag: get View post tag: Navy View post tag: ship View post tag: facility Share this articlelast_img read more
