ECB sticks with its hawkish sentiment

first_img whatsapp Share KCS-content Tags: NULL TENSIONS in the Middle East could lead to upward pressure on inflation in the Eurozone and affect economic growth, research from the European Central Bank (ECB) showed yesterday. “Risks to the medium-term outlook for price developments remain on the upside,” reads the ECB’s April bulletin. “They relate to higher than assumed increases in energy prices, not least owing to ongoing political tensions in North Africa and the Middle East.” The inflation rate in the Eurozone was registered at 2.6 per cent in March. The ECB’s bulletin said it will “continue to monitor very closely all developments with respect to upside risks to price stability”.Last week the ECB raised rates for the first time in almost three years.

How I’d invest £20k in a Stocks and Shares ISA to get rich and retire early

first_img 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. 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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Investing through a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a sound means to improve your chances of retiring early. It’s a simple product to understand, with withdrawals being tax-free and flexible. It’s also cheap to open and administer, while the lack of tax charged on any profits or dividends generated from investments in an ISA could make it highly appealing to a wide range of people.Of course, deciding where to invest can be challenging – especially when there are numerous options available. However, with the stock market offering low valuations, international growth potential and income opportunities, it may be the best means of improving your retirement prospects.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…Low valuationsThe FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indexes currently trade on highly appealing valuations. Evidence of this can be seen through their dividend yields, having income returns of 4.3% and 3% respectively. Both of these figures are higher than their historic averages, which indicates that even after a decade-long bull market, there are still buying opportunities available.Within each index, however, are a number of stocks that offer wider margins of safety than their index peers. Sectors such as banking, retail, energy and industrials have been relatively unpopular among investors in recent years. Risks such as Brexit, the global trade war and geopolitical uncertainties have been contributing factors and could mean that there are numerous buying opportunities for investors.Low valuations mean that there are income opportunities on offer in both indexes. While both of these  may have relatively high yields at the present time, around 25% of their respective members currently offer income returns that are in excess of 5%. This could mean that investors have the opportunity to generate high-dingle digit annualised returns over the long run without requiring significant amounts of capital growth.Growth potentialWhen it comes to growth potential, both indexes also offer international exposure that could catalyse their performances over the coming years. While the FTSE 100 is often viewed as an international index due to it generating around two-thirds of its revenue from outside of the UK, the FTSE 250 also offers international exposure. Around 50% of the income generated by its members is derived from non-UK markets, which means there are ample opportunities for investors to gain access to the fast pace of growth offered across the emerging world.While the UK economy could produce an improving rate of growth as Brexit risks potentially dissipate, emerging economies such as India and China appear to offer significantly higher rates of growth. As such, focusing your capital on undervalued companies with exposure to such economies could prove to be a smart move. Those companies may catalyse your portfolio’s performance and improve your prospects of generating a large nest egg that enables you to retire early.

3 ways I’d invest £1k today

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. If I had £1,000 to invest now, I would use one of three different strategies.There are many different strategies investors can choose from to deploy their money. Some of these strategies may be more suitable for some investors than others. For example, growth stocks can be volatile investments. Therefore, owning these types of shares may be unsuitable for investors who are worried by market movements. 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…As a young investor with many decades to go until retirement, I’m happy to own a broad range of investments. With that in mind, here are three ways I’d invest £1,000 today. Where to invest now with £1k? Research has shown that small and mid-cap stocks can generate better returns than large caps. However, buying individual small caps can be risky because these smaller companies lack the checks and balances in place at large enterprises. As such, one investment I’d buy with £1,000 is the Mercantile Investment Trust. This trust focuses on mid-cap companies, mainly firms listed in the FTSE 250. Current portfolio holdings include homebuilder Bellway and table-top gaming business Games Workshop. The trust charges an annual fee of 0.51% and offers a dividend yield of 2.5% at present. As a way to invest in a diversified basket of high-quality mid-cap stocks, I think this investment trust is one of the best offerings on the market. The primary risk of owning stocks through a trust is the risk that the manager will make some bad calls. This could hold back returns and possibly even inflict losses on investors. Passive investment Another strategy I’d use to invest now in the market is to acquire a passive tracker. One fund I’ve got my eye on is the Vanguard Equity Income Fund. This fund owns some of the highest-yielding stocks in the FTSE All-Share index. It charges an annual fee of 0.14% and currently offers a distribution yield of just under 4%. One of the benefits of having a passive fund like this is there’s no chance the manager will pick the wrong investments. This is because all the fund managers do is track an index, which is the UK Equity Income index. That said, there’s also no chance the fund will outperform. That’s the most considerable risk of holding a passive fund. It could struggle to keep up with more active peers like the Mercantile Investment Trust. As such, I own a blend of passive and active investments in my portfolio. Growth play If I were to invest now, I would buy a growth stock alongside the opportunities outlined above. There are many options here, but one company that stands out to me is FTSE 100 health and safety business Halma. This firm has an excellent track record of organic growth and growth through acquisitions. Health and safety is one of those sectors that’s never going to go away. So as long as Halma can keep competition at bay, I think the business should continue to grow.This may be easier said than done. The company uses a lot of debt to fund acquisitions, which could cause problems if growth slows. Another risk is competition, which may depress margins if Halma gets caught up in a price war. By combining these three assets, I can build a portfolio of income and growth investments with £1,000.  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.

The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees. 3 ways I’d invest £1k today Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 13th May, 2021 center_img See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

How to prevent ‘Zoombombing’ from disrupting virtual services

You are being hacked!” one shouted. Another turned on his video and began revealing his genitals.“It was generally chaotic and impossible to stop,” recalled Merritt. “It was a huge wake-up call for me because I’m an elementary public school teacher, and I don’t want the children in my class exposed to any of the pornographic images that trolls sent us.”The mass transition of houses of worship to Zoom and other online video conferencing platforms has meant that religious services are more accessible than ever before.Unfortunately for digital congregants, that means they are also more accessible to online trolls who have plenty of free time to disrupt their services with obscene or hateful interruptions.Merritt’s church group, which had to shut down its meeting and set up a new one, originally put a public Zoom link on its website. Now, the group will only send the link to members of its private Facebook groups, all of whom have been approved.“I think places of worship need to be really careful when they put public Zoom links on their websites, especially if those links are to meeting spaces where there will be young children,” Merritt told Religion News Service. “Places of worship, ideally, want to be places that anyone can attend. At the moment, they need to balance this desire to be open to all who seek and the reality that there are folks out there who would sabotage these digital spaces.”The epidemic of “Zoombombing” has spared no one, with trolls finding meeting links that have been posted online, then sharing and drawing graphic content on participants’ screens — leaving schools and universities, churches and synagogues alike with no choice but to close their meetings abruptly.A Shabbat service held via Zoom by a Bay Area synagogue was crashed by Nazis. A Unitarian Universalist church in Massachusetts saw a livestreamed service on YouTube deluged with dislikes. A livestreamed church service in Los Angeles was hacked and replaced with porn. A Zoom webinar last week with the People’s Forum, an activist-oriented cultural space directed by theologian Claudia de la Cruz, was disrupted by a troll posting the n-word in the chat window repeatedly until administrators blocked him.“My heart sank when I saw it happen,” said the Rev. Jason Wells, who had joined the People’s Forum event from Concord, New Hampshire, and saw the racist messages. “There are lots of great justice workers on that call and I felt deflated when I thought of how it would affect everyone there.”On Sunday morning, the Rev. Laura Everett was on Zoom at Boston’s First Baptist Church preaching about death when users from outside the church’s congregation hijacked the service.After finding a link to the meeting, which Everett had tweeted so her followers could tune in to her sermon, the trolls began forcing racist and anti-LGBT hate speech onto participants’ screens.“Hate doesn’t stop in a pandemic,” she tweeted as church leaders stopped the meeting and reconvened in a password-protected web conference. “Lord, have mercy.”The disruption left Everett thinking about the “profound brokenness” in the men who harassed her and her congregants.“Candidly, as a Preacher, I’ve got enough work now: Exegete the Scripture, Say something wise during a pandemic?” Everett tweeted afterward. “Preach the sermon, Run Tech set up, Live stream to FB/Twitter/Zoom. What I don’t need is more work from internet trolls #zoombombing & harassing me and the congregation.”Combined with the desire to leave their churches’ doors open to the masses, many religious leaders’ newness with the technology means they struggle to protect their services from such disruptions.Many faith-based organizations, including the United Methodist Church of New England and the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ, have begun sharing tips with members for avoiding Zoombombing. Zoom’s own blog has published an extensive guide to the features that hosts can use to protect their meetings.Gateway’s Director of Online Education made this brief tutorial on how to protect your church or small group from Zoom Bombers. If you are using Zoom for online education, social gatherings, or church functions watch this video: https://t.co/MfukNOIJ8q— Gateway Online (@GatewayOnlineEd) March 28, 2020“If you don’t advertise how to get onto the meeting it becomes much harder for people to join the meeting in the first place,” wrote David Sim, a trainee minister with the Church of Scotland who created a guide to preventing Zoombombing. “That may be counter-intuitive where we want to welcome all, so it may not be possible in every case – for example for our public worship where we want everyone to join. However, if you are having a business meeting, a Messy Church or a small prayer meeting, you can share joining details by email or text on a need to know basis.”Merritt, who began researching ways to protect his students as he moved to distance learning, recommended that administrators disable screen sharing and annotations during meetings. Otherwise, any participant who joins the meeting can share the contents of their own screen or draw anything onto the shared screen.He also urged houses of worship to enable Zoom’s waiting room feature so the host can approve folks to join the meeting and be ready to boot any unknown users out of the meeting.And don’t forget to pray for those who harassed you, Merritt said.While his own group was too harried by the intrusion to do so together, he said, “it seems like the obvious, Christian thing to do in retrospect!”This article was originally published by Religion News Service.

Two sets of brothers selected in Maori All Blacks team to play Fiji

first_imgThursday Jul 9, 2015 Two sets of brothers selected in Maori All Blacks team to play Fiji The Maori All Blacks team to play Fiji in Suva on Saturday features two sets of brothers in the starting fifteen and nine new caps in total. Charlie Ngatai will captain the side, fresh from his All Blacks debut against Samoa yesterday.The new caps include the Ioane brothers, Akira and Rieko (18 years old), and Tawera Kerr-Barlow who is returning from a long injury enforced break. Chiefs back Damian McKenzie will also make his debut at fullback alongside his brother Marty, making for a rare set of four brothers in the Maori All Blacks jersey.There are also six players from the Hurricanes and Highlanders who appeared in Saturday’s Investec Super Rugby final. Coach Colin Cooper said the short assembly time had been challenging for the squad, but he was pleased with how quickly the players had gelled as a unit.“We have a good mix in the team to take on Fiji. There are players who have come out of the Super Rugby finals series in great nick and those who have had a bit more of a layoff so I think that will work well for us. It’s great that we are also able to field some of the exciting, young players we’ve brought into this team and I know Saturday will be a very proud day for them.“We’re certainly fit and raring to go against what we see is a very strong Fijian team so we’ll need to be at our best to honour our record against international teams.”The Maori All Blacks have played against Fiji 28 times in total, winning 19 times and drawing twice.

Boxtree Lane / YOOP Architects

first_imgPhotographs:  Courtesy of YOOP Architects, Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsText description provided by the architects. YOOP Architects announce the handover of keys for an affordable housing project in Boxtree, Harrow.  Built according to ‘fabric first’ principles, the building is so heat retentive that residents should only need to switch on the heat during the coldest months of the year, if at all.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsThe development was built according to a demanding brief from the Origin Housing Group, whose priorities include reducing fuel poverty in the borough; they also wanted the finished housing to provide privacy and security in this challenging corner position.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsYOOP Architects’ design used a ‘fabric first’ approach, which concentrates on ensuring the building is as well insulated as possible, and reduces the need for renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic panels and solar thermal panels – which would create another set of maintenance and cost for residents.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsSaid YOOP Architects’ partner Gordon Evans:  “We used a solid wall construction to minimise heat loss and reduce noise between flats.  The building has been structurally designed so that photovoltaic panels can be added in the future if needed, but the construction is so heat-retentive that we anticipate that most residents will only need to use heating in the coldest winter months, if at all”.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsIn addition to the thermal insulation properties of the walls, the building features a continuous ventilation system that uses outgoing air to heat incoming air.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsProviding privacy and private amenity space was also a priority for the development, and YOOP achieved this by wrapping a generous balcony around the building and shielding the balcony space from public view using a high screen wall, to provide each flat has its own external amenity and storage space.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsThe Boxtree development is sited in a corner position, in the site of the derelict and vandalised Box Tree public house.  The design used this corner position to great effect: all the flats and houses are dual aspect, all the rooms have windows including kitchens and bathrooms, and the four houses in the development have access to a secure and private communal garden.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsThe development has 14 dwellings of mixed sizes, and provides flexible accommodation, which will be available on shared ownership basis.Save this picture!Courtesy of YOOP ArchitectsIn addition to four houses, the development has a six-bedroom flat, which is quite unique in London. It has a generous terrace to the front, a private garden space to the rear, and a layout that has been designed for easy conversion to 2x two bedroom flats should the six-bedroom layout no longer be required. It also contains nine flats with private balconies.

The structure enveloping the terrace adds privacy and perfectly frames the landscape.Save this picture!© Jessy Bernier PhotographerThe simple volumetry and the contemporary approach are in harmony with the materiality of the project. The wood and the natural slate clapboards are contrasting with the white volume of the house, which blends with the wintery decor and the mountains of Stoneham, while it contrasts with the colors of summer and the fall. The scale of the walls and windows provides a lot of openings on the outside, resulting in a natural lighting which is out of the ordinary.Save this picture!© Jessy Bernier PhotographerProject gallerySee allShow lessGelateria Gianluca Zaffari / SK ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsSasaki Transform the Yangtze Waterfront with Flood-Friendly MasterplanArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

These Golden Bonds offer guaranteed places in the Marathon, and charities make them available to runners, usually in return for them committing to raise a minimum amount for the charity.Photo: Julian Mason on flickr.comApplicants can apply to over 200 different charities with Golden Bonds on JustGiving, ranging from health to environmental charities. By applying for places via the site, JustGiving makes it easy for potential runners to create a fundraising page, ready for use when they hear that they are successful.However, applying for a place on the site does not guarantee acceptance. The charities are promoting their Golden Bonds to runners and supporters elsewhere.Stacey Yeates, Challenge Events Manager at WellChild, the national charity for sick children, said: “The ability for us to list our charity places on the JustGiving website easily enables new and existing supporters to get involved and secure their place for the world’s largest one-day fundraiser.”The London Marathon takes place on 17 April 2011.Over 7,000 charities have used JustGiving since 2001, and over 12 million people have used it to raise £700 million for these charities.www.justgiving.com/london-marathon-charity-place Howard Lake | 2 November 2010 | News  29 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis JustGiving lists hundreds of London Marathon places for charity runners Tagged with: Events Justgiving London marathon About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
