I found out today I am one of 25 Australians to be inducted.

Image source: Getty Images center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Dividend stocks: 3 I’d buy from the FTSE 250 index Many investors look to the FTSE 100 for dividend stocks. Certainly, there are plenty of generous payers among the blue-chip giants. In addition, though, I like to keep an eye on dividend stocks in the mid-cap FTSE 250 index.A good number of these operate in sectors that aren’t represented in the FTSE 100. I see them as a valuable source of further income diversification. With this in mind, here are three dividend stocks from the FTSE 250 index I’d be happy to buy 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…Impressive recordPrimary Health Properties (LSE: PHP) will release its annual results on 18 February. Dividends for 2020 are set to total 5.9p per share. This would mark the company’s 24th consecutive year of dividend growth. Few dividend stocks have as impressive a record.PHP focuses on primary health real estate. This is traditionally much less cyclical than other real estate sectors. The majority of its rental income is received directly or indirectly from government bodies in the UK and Ireland.One potential high-impact risk for PHP would be a fundamental change in government policy on the funding of primary care. However, I think this risk is low, due to government recognition that using private finance to supplement public capital represents good value for money.With a dividend yield of 4.1% at a share price of 145.2p, I reckon PHP’s shares also represent good value for money.FTSE 250 dividend stock #2Leading UK self-storage brand Big Yellow (LSE: BYG) hasn’t matched PHP’s record of consecutive annual dividend increases. However, it’s always paid a dividend since its maiden distribution in 2003. And overall growth has been strong.The board’s policy is to distribute 80% of earnings. BYG’s business has been relatively resilient through the pandemic, and the interim dividend declared in November was just 0.6% lower than the prior year. City analysts are forecasting a broadly flat payout for the full year, giving a yield of 3.1% at a share price of 1,106p.Competition is a key risk for BYG. However, I think the company’s scale, and focus on London, its commuter towns and large metropolitan cities, give it a competitive advantage. Barriers to entry are highest in these areas, due to competition for land and difficulty around obtaining planning consent.Wind in its sailsWind farm owner Greencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW) is the UK’s largest listed renewable energy infrastructure stock. Acquisitions have enabled the company to achieve significant size and scale. It’s well placed to make further value-accretive acquisitions and further enhance returns for shareholders due to this competitive advantage over smaller peers.Since its flotation in 2013, UKW has delivered on its policy of paying a dividend that increases in line with RPI inflation. Annual results are due for release later this month. It’s on track to pay its 2020 target dividend of 7.1p, giving a yield of 5.2% at a share price of 136.8p.Valuations in the industry are based on a number of long-term assumptions. These include such things as government energy policy, and asset life and maintenance expenditure of wind turbines. There’s a risk these may prove over-optimistic, but it’s a risk I’m willing to accept, set against the reward of the generous dividend yield.

Falcons off to a flier

first_img“We played with two young guys up front who have only recently become professionals and with the injuries I’m really concerned.“We are down to the bare minimum in the front row and only have five fit players in that area.” Running the show against Bourgoin was “senior” back Jeremy Manning – while teenager Joel Hodgson took over at No 10 for the closing stages.“Jeremy at 25-years-old was left in charge of the boys,” said Tait. “He is one of our most experienced players and I wanted a big game from him.“He guided the ship well and did a good job – and then Joel came on to make his debut. He also did a good job and scored the third try in what was probably our best play of the game.“All in all it went well but at times we struggled with inexperience and made a meal of it in the end. However, they got the result and will take confidence from it.“Winning breeds confidence and I’m glad we have got the win under our belts. I want to see the boys put in another performance next week.“We know we have to keep building and I will probably stick with the same squad wherever we can. Newcastle FalconsNewcastle Falcons look ahead to a second successive weekend of facing up to a formidable French test as they travel to Montpellier on the back of a Round 1 victory over Bourgoin.The 22-16 home win got them off to a flier in their bid to make the tournament knock-out stages for a sixth successive season but head coach Alan Tait knows the club in fourth place in the Top 14 – including wins over Toulouse and Racing Metro 92 – will be yet another step up.For their part Montpellier went to Sandy Park in Round 1 to provide the opposition for Exeter Chiefs on their European debut and the French club went home with a 20-13 victory against the newcomers.“Montpellier have all that forward power and scrummage well,” said Tait.“And with them having home advantage I just want the boys to put in a performance, we know they are going to be very tough down there.“They are playing really well, their results say it all and it will be a massive ask. We just have to wait and see how things pan out but if we can perform and put a Newcastle stamp on the game I will be pleased.“Regardless of what competition you are in you go to play in France and it will be good experience for the youngsters and another challenge in their development.“I’m delighted with the result we got against Bourgoin. The boys have been knocking at the door for a while and, although we have not got the results, we have been putting in good performances.“Hopefully they will take confidence from the result and move it forward from there.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Newcastle Falcons last_img read more

England v New Zealand: All Blacks stick, while England and Tuilagi twist

first_img Shaking it up for the second Test against the All Blacks this Saturday, England head coach Stuart Lancaster has brought five new names into his starting lineup, while Manu Tuilagi shifts onto the wing.The move means that Tuilagi goes onto the right wing to set-up a Dunedin showdown with fit-again Julian Savea as the hosts retain all but one of the team that defeated England 20-15 at Eden Park, themselves shifting Ben Smith to full-back as an injured Israel Dagg drops out. Marland Yarde hops over to the left wing to accommodate Tuilagi, replacing Jonny May who has fallen out of the squad completely.Stripping off: The prolific Julian Savea is finally ready to play against EnglandIn the centres a successful Six Nations combo of Billy Twelvetrees and Luther Burrell step into the side, as do half-backs Danny Care and Owen Farrell. Tom Wood is in at six.With changes being rung – James Haskell joins May in falling from the squad completely – it is perhaps a surprise that Courtney Lawes is not brought straight back in alongside Joe Launchbury, but Lancaster feels he had to strike a balance between rewarding some who shone last Saturday, as Geoff Parling and Rob Webber did, and reinstating those who have performed well for him, long-term.“The side we have gone for is certainly an exciting side, it’s one we have wanted to look at for a while,” Lancaster said of the team for Forsyth Barr.On Tuilagi’s selection he said: “We were thinking of Manu on the wing six to 12 months ago, really. Having seen him as an age-grade player play there and understanding how effective he was, I saw that obviously when I was in charge of the Saxons. What we’ve now got is real quality in the centres who can get the ball to him. And it’s not just about clearly getting the ball to Manu on the wing because you have Luther (Burrell) and Billy (Twelvetrees) who played really well for us in the centres in the Six Nations.”Clearly putting three into two is difficult, but with Tuilagi being able to plough up the middle from strike moves, Lancaster is happy to use him out wide, even if there may be an element of uncertainty about how Tuilagi copes with high balls being kicked his way. As his coach put it, there will certainly be plenty of opportunity to counter-attack.Missing out: Courtney Lawes is on the bench despite fine 6N and Saints formThe get out of jail card on the bench is Chris Ashton, who takes the place left with May away. And with fireworks promised as Dylan Hartley, Lawes and Billy Vunipola come on near the hour mark, it is certainly easy to see why the coach is excited about his selection. The only potential issue is having the freshly buoyed Freddie Burns now covering stand-off and full-back from the bench. TAGS: Highlight Blasting in from the wing: Manu Tuilagi will join Marland Yarde on the wings this Saturday. He faces Julian Savea Young Kieran Brookes also comes in on the bench with Henry Thomas struggling with a knock that has “weakened” his neck, however the England coaches are more than happy to see how the 125kg prop holds up, should he be needed.Much of the pre-game hype will be about Tuilagi trying to hit Savea – who has scored 19 tries in 20 games – “very hard.” However, with England promising to play for 80 minutes rather than fade in the dying minutes, expect this game to turn on how the impact substitutes fare and how those needed for a full shift survive.England XV to face All Blacks: Mike Brown; Manu Tuilagi, Luther Burrell, Billy Twelvetrees, Marland Yarde; Owen Farrell, Danny Care; Joe Marler, Rob Webber, David Wilson, Joe Launchbury, Geoff Parling, Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw (c), Ben Morgan.England subs to face All Blacks: Dylan Hartley, Matt Mullan, Kieran Brookes, Courtney Lawes, Billy Vunipola, Ben Youngs, Freddie Burns, Chris AshtonAll Black XV to face England: Ben Smith; Cory Jane, Conrad Smith, Ma’a Nonu, Julian Savea; Aaron Cruden, Aaron Smith; Tony Woodcock, Dane Coles, Owen Franks, Brodie Retallick, Sam Whitelock, Liam Messam, Richie McCaw (c), Jerome Kaino.

Yes, he mentioned Sheppey, Burundi, the Balkans, but not the other attacks in the middle East. I do not think it was intentional, but it does reflect our cultures focus on Europe as the center of concern while not giving equal weight to actions in the Middle East. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Comments (2) Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Director of Music Morristown, NJ Featured Jobs & Calls Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s Easter Day sermon preached at Canterbury Cathedral.‘A World Transformed, A Life of Hope’Luke 24:1-12Last night, at Harty church, on the tip of Sheppey, with the wind howling, lit by candles, warmed by one another, we celebrated the light of Christ that, full of joy and hope, we carry into a world of fear and darkness. In the shadow of Brussels, with the memory of Srebeniza, hope can seem far far away. People here will feel hope has faded because of illness, bereavement, unemployment, money worries, family breakdown. When hope fails, fear draws close, and whispers sly deceits in our minds.On Easter Day hope decisively overcame fear and Christians are called to be witnesses to the hope that is found only in Jesus Christ.Fear is reasonable, a normal human reaction. This week has shocked all of us, and risks causing us to act fearfully, to see a world in which fear triumphs. Easter proclaims to us in flesh and blood that fear and death and terror are not the last words. God has spoken life, hope and purpose. Terror speaks of a world at war with itself, of Faiths at each others’ throats. Jesus Christ reaches out not in exclusion but in embrace. This is the feast of the victory of God, and we celebrate in the midst of darkness, by our worship and praise shining an unquenchable light.That is the light the women encountered as, full of sorrow and despair, they went to the tomb. They had watched Jesus, whom they had accompanied from Galilee, arrested, tried and executed, in the space of a few hours. All expectation was betrayed, all achievement obliterated by the evil acts of powerful and indifferent rulers.When the whole stream of events flows the wrong way then it is hard to endure, hard to trust the victory of God. That is the reality for so many. There is a sense of the emptiness of life, of a spiral of decline. Life may get better occasionally, but only to get worse. Darkness falls, the morning may come, but then another night.So it was for the women who had endured everything with Jesus. They had seen miracles. They had shared his rejection and his hardships. They had walked the roads with him. They had experienced Palm Sunday and the cleansing of the Temple. Bright dawn had broken, new hope blossomed. Now it was gone. Many will identify with that.It is not only through events that there is temptation to cynical despair, losing sight of the reality of purpose and achievement which is the gift of God’s creation.Economically, things go up and down. One problem may be overcome but others rush in to fill the gap. Whether it is as individuals seeking to hold on to jobs, or as Governments seeking to make things better, the pressure never diminishes, the problems queue up to present themselves.Then God steps in at that first Easter and the world changes. The news of Easter isn’t about the cycles of life, of how spring follows winter. There is nothing natural about resurrection. At Easter God is completely disrupting the pattern of life and death.Resurrection is an act of God. Like all acts of God it asks us questions.“Why do you look for the living among the dead?” The women had no categories for what they were part of.Imagine if those who built this cathedral more than 800 years ago were to be given a smart phone, or see an airplane fly through the sky or be taken to the cinema to see a film… They would have nothing in their experience to help them comprehend what was going on.The women obey the normal rules of life and death. They find a God-shaped event that opens the door to a new world of hope, hope that is outside of ourselves, not based on our own capacities or capabilities but on God.They carried to the tomb the spices to embalm his dead body. But they didn’t need them. I wonder what kind of things we are carrying this Easter Sunday that we don’t need to carry, because Jesus is alive?To all of us in every time and place and fear and situation, Easter day proclaims that God who raises the dead is more real, more powerful than anything we encounter.“Who is this for?” The primary witnesses of Easter are those who are marginal in the culture, on the very edges of society of that day –  women, the poor. Given the importance that we in society give to celebrity endorsements this is a little disconcerting. The resurrection of Jesus is for all people everywhere, most of all for the poor, the despairing, the forgotten and abandoned.Resurrection life is springing up all over this world. In Burundi three weeks ago Caroline and I arrived at a smallish, fairly makeshift church in a poor area, packed to the doors. Inside we heard testimony of the suffering of the local people in the violence that had prevailed there – one who’d been shot, another beaten, many threatened. Each morning bodies were found in ditches.I did what I have learned is the best thing to do when among followers of Jesus Christ, however bad their circumstances, whether in that church or in a refugee camp the next day, and spoke about Jesus Christ, alive.Because it was Jesus Christ that was being spoken about and it was being translated. Quiet fell, broken later by rifle fire and grenades. At the end, we sang again, and the place lifted in worship, drums playing, people dancing. This was Christianity, living out Easter hope in the face of darkness, unquenched, unquenchable.In Sittingbourne deanery there is a community bank where children come in and learn how to save; a food bank, people come in for soup and bread at lunch. This was a church building more used today than at any time since it was built.Easter is good news for the poor, for those on the edge. Easter is good news for governments and leaders, stretched and struggling in the face of infinite need, who see no way forward that avoids disappointment, no way that is safe. Easter is news that says God rules; we all may find hope and courage.“Will you be a witness to this? This hope wasn’t just for the women….. they had to run to tell others. Their witness was rejected, as ours often will be. Yet they persevered and because God is behind all this it spread, was believed, changed the whole world. In our Acts reading Peter witnesses to it to Cornelius miles away and years later.Every single Christian is invited, commanded, compelled to witness that Jesus is alive. In Isaiah the vision is even wider – this is about the whole world changing – a new creation for the world. It gets no bigger than this.We are witnesses to this now, now when witness is more needed than ever. Jesus is alive. Hope is unleashed on the world. We are not left hopeless, despairing and lost. Instead there has been a miracle of God in the place of death. Our future isn’t simply the product of our past. The risen Jesus has recreated all things.On Sheppey last night, in the storm, here today in grandeur, in Burundi, facing war, in Brussels, living with terror, in the Balkans, looking for reconciliation, at home or in hospital or prison, struggling with a myriad of fears – there is the same news. For all of us, at the empty tomb is hope. Uncontainable hope. We are its witnesses, go and tell.

In addition, reducing construction resources such as water, sand, gravel, cement, brick, and iron means saving natural resources, leaving the construction site clean and not causing rubbish and material leftovers. Considerable savings were made in the cost of foundations and their impact on the terrain profile, as the lightweight metal structure made it possible to use small, insulated shoes without reinforcement and hardware.Save this picture!© Guilherme JordaniThe compact kitchen with fridge, cooktop, electric oven, coffee maker and other appliances next to the natural wood dining table with locksmith’s feet is integrated into the TV room and fireplace, containing a sofa bed, bordering the double bed.

The large glazed space opens onto the porch, a breakthrough in the structure created with the original container doors and a precast concrete deck. These spans received horizontal blinds, which work as brises when regulating the entry of natural light. Artificial lighting was developed through metal cable trays with spotlights and PAR20 led lamps, creating scenic effects and highlighting the rustic brick wallpaper and the natural wood carvings on the walls.Save this picture!© Guilherme JordaniThe roof of the containers became apparent, so above it was applied a layer of expanded polyurethane, for waterproofing and to ensure thermal and acoustic comfort. It also received a 10cm layer of concrete and finally synthetic grass, thus creating a terrace that can be accessed by a sailor ladder. The main access has an indentation and is through the original container door. Developed for use through the Airbnb app, and aware of the constant changes in places of interest and tourism, buildings can be moved quickly and without aggression to the environment where they are currently located.Save this picture!© Guilherme JordaniProject gallerySee allShow lessO6A LOT Housing / SAM architecture + QuerkraftSelected ProjectsChinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen Campus / Rocco Design Architects Associate…Selected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeSaymon Dall Alba ArquitetoOfficeFollowMégui Dal Bó ArquitetaOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrazilPublished on January 30, 2020Cite: “Cambará Container House / Saymon Dall Alba Arquiteto + Mégui Dal Bó Arquiteta” [Casa Cambará Container / Saymon Dall Alba Arquiteto + Mégui Dal Bó Arquiteta] 30 Jan 2020.

Memorial Day events pay tribute to veterans

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Twitter Pinterest Memorial Day events pay tribute to veterans WhatsApp TAGS  Facebook Twittercenter_img Pinterest Local News Facebook James Kohr places an American Flag at a grave Monday, June 28, 2018 at Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home. Numerous events will honor veterans in the days leading up to Memorial Day and pay tribute to those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The Odessa American Legion will host a Memorial Day ceremony at the Ector County Cemetery and feature Dr. Ron Hankins, who is a retired military chaplain and the newly assigned pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Odessa. Rev. Hankins completed a total of 23 years of military service, which included 13 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, six years in the U.S. Naval Chaplain Corps and four years as a U.S. National Guard chaplain. “What service means to me is giving yourself for the sake of others whether that be your nation or your community,” Hankins said “These events are about remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice.” Hankins emphasized unity as a critical element for service and said a community thrives off of the accumulated selfless acts of service that individuals invest locally and on a national scale. “No matter how great or small, doing whatever we can do to serve and make a difference,” he said, and “inspiring others to continue that tradition.” Hankins said he hopes remembering veterans during the federal holiday will motivate people to come together and continue to carry on that spirit of service. Additional Memorial Day events will take place over the weekend and include placing small flags beside veterans’ headstones on Saturday at the Ector County Cemetery and Sunset Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4372 and auxiliary will also host a flag-raising ceremony and free breakfast Saturday at the VFW facility at 208 E. VFW Lane.
