Ideally, I want to invest in a boring business with reliable cash flows, strong earnings, and growing dividends.A boring FTSE 100 business…For some time, shares in miner BHP Group (LSE: BHP) have been on my watchlist. BHP is literally a ‘boring’ company – because, as one of the world’s largest diversified mining groups, it bores holes all over the globe.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…Based in Melbourne, Australia, and with its shares dual-listed in the UK and Oz, BHP is a world-leading resources company. This FTSE 100 firm extracts and process minerals, oil, and gas, with a workforce of over 72,000 employees and contractors, primarily in Australia and the Americas.BHP is a world-leading producer of vital commodities, such as iron ore, copper, and metallurgical coal. It also has substantial interests in oil, gas, and energy coal. In other words, it’s a big, dirty, old-fashioned business – but with thousands of customers worldwide eager to buy its raw materials.But an exciting FTSE 100 share?One thing I admire about BHP is its ability to generate huge sums of cash to invest, grow, and reward its shareholders. Since 2016, it has reduced its net debt by $17bn, reinvested $27bn in development and growth, and returned over $29bn to shareholders. In my book, that’s mighty impressive, as well as sensibly balanced.Of course, as a global miner, BHP’s shares were hit for six by the Covid-19-induced slowdown in world trade. Right now, BHP shares trade at 1,737p, down 11.1% in the past 12 months. They were as high as 2,023p on 30 July 2019, and crashed as low as 939.8p on 12 March this year.BHP’s financials tick my boxesFor value investors seeking stable incomes, big is beautiful. At £96.6bn, BHP is a mega-cap company and currently #4 in the FTSE 100 by size.Likewise, BHP’s financials stack up nicely when considering it as a value buy. Earnings of 146p a share translate into a price-to-earnings ratio of 11.9 at today’s 1,737p. The historic yearly dividend of 112.7p equates to a dividend yield of 6.5%, which is chunky by FTSE 100 standards.BHP is primed for a bounce-backBHP last paid a quarterly dividend on 24 March and, unlike many FTSE 100 members, it intends to continue these regular cash payouts.The good news for shareholders is that BHP’s iron-ore production hit a record high in the June quarter, just as the price spiked back above $100 a tonne. This is due to resurgent demand from Chinese steel-makers as the world’s number two economy bounces back post-lockdown.BHP is also big in copper, where production is running at similar levels to 2019, up 2% in the 12 months to the end of June. With copper prices also climbing, this should boost BHP’s impressive cash flows.In short, BHP is a powerful, impressive, world-leading business whose shares are cheap while its future is bright. I would buy this FTSE 100 share as a value and income/dividend play today.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

first_imgWednesday Feb 5, 2020 5 times injured players came back from the dead to do something spectacular The Sydney 7s served up its usual dose of fun and entertainment, as Fiji beat South Africa in the final after another memorable World Series Sevens leg. In one of the pool games, a crazy moment happened, reminding us of similar such instances over the years. ADVERTISEMENTIn a pool game against Japan, a Spanish player was out of action, getting treatment for a head knock on the floor when suddenly, out of nowhere, adrenalin kicked in and he jumped up to not only get across to make a crucial tackle but to put in one of the biggest hits of the entire weekend!Some fans online weren’t too happy about it, thinking it was unsporting. Whatever the case, we’ve seen a number of highly entertaining similar moments over the years, all featured here on the site.BRIAN O’DRISCOLLIn 2011, the man known as BOD came back from the dead after taking a big knock off the ball against Munster. Down getting treatment, he jumped miraculously to cut down an attacker.To add to the man’s legendary status, twenty minutes later, he produced a mesmeric run and flick pass down the left flank. Brilliant.https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1557de?logo=on&hideInfos=1&highlight=b10015KURTLEY BEALEA month later in a Tri Nations match, Wallabies star Beale did something very similar, after he too took a knock.“He pushed the trainer out of the way.. jumped to his feet…” explained commentator Greg Martin, who then described how Beale jumped up in defence but sparked a counter attack, almost setting up a try in the process. To add to the entertainment, he then swore on live TV.ADVERTISEMENThttps://youtu.be/WKNxnBgUieMMARLAND YARDEIn 2013, then London Irish flyer Yarde was actually down receiving treatment for cramp against Saracens, but as the ball came his way, he saw an opportunity and adrenalin kicked in.Up in a flash, he got himself into position to receive the scoring pass and duly finish off the try, leaving the physio to catch up with him again a minute or so later.https://youtu.be/-U8wNPqIdss?t=1CAMBRIDGE HEROIn the Varsity match of the same year, Cambridge player Jake Baker was injured in a similar position to some of these, then also popped up to make a crucial tackle.That’s Sean Edwards’ voice you can hear in the clip, of course.ADVERTISEMENTFeel free to share your reactions in the comments below!

The site is located near the center of Tokyo. It is a small 44m2 corner plot bounded by two streets. Conforming to legal conditions and in response to the client’s wish for a ‘roofed garage’ the volume was trimmed from various directions. Using the words ‘Mineral’ and ‘reflection’ as guiding concepts, Atelier Tekuto proceeded to use subtraction as a positive tool for design.Save this picture!© Makoto YoshidaMINERAL Minerals are phenomena that combine abstract properties (conceptual objects) with nonfigurative properties (objects whose presence of matter is more tangible). Changes from transparent to translucent to opaque occur according to light intensity and angle. The mineral body cannot be regarded as a simple element. Save this picture!© Makoto YoshidaREFLECTION Reflection is a recent concept pertaining to the perception of space. Vision is an important factor in the recognition of space. By controlling geometries (facets with three factors: transparent, translucent and opaque) and entangling them in a three-dimensional way inside the internal space, visual reflection is induced. This results in a deviation from the restrictiveness of space. Save this picture!© Makoto YoshidaAs people move inside the space, or as light enters from changing angles, the facet’s presence changes, creating a dynamic space. In contrast to the abstractness of the polyhedron are the kitchen, counter shelf, stairs, floors and toilet box equipped with functionality that exist as nonfigurative objects. The third floor bathroom unit features a mirror finish in stainless steel, which combines both concepts of object and reflection, and presents itself as a substitution of both ‘minerals’ and ‘reflection’.

The Masonry, a multi-family house in Korea, seeks a playful game of “scale” in two aspects, the building itself and bricks in its façade. The site sits at the corner, facing its long-north and short-east sides to the roads. Due to the town planning, the entrance and the long side of the house need to be facing South. It makes a contradictory condition of pitched roof direction and the main face of the house.Save this picture!© Song YousubSave this picture!Massing Strategy DiagramSave this picture!© Song YousubReferring Robert Venturi’s House the gable is placed along with a long side of the site towards South. Intentionally treating the gable in opposite position against typical pitched roof shape for structural and economic efficiency the Masonry tricks its scale until visitors enter the house. We were asked to design a house for two families but the house would avoid the appearance of two townhouses. Diagonally stacked two kinds of bricks (100mm x 200mm) and cement blocks (200mm x 400mm) creates a singular masonry façade but also nuanced two units of the program in a single mass.Save this picture!© Song YousubSave this picture!Exploded AxonometricSave this picture!© Song YousubThe house composed of two families bisected East and West.

This climbing up provides dynamic spatial experiences and visual connections through landing and ceiling changes. Beyond the connection and function of the stairs, this circulation spine becomes a main structural core in the house.

first_imgIn the United States, over 2 million home care workers are paying the price for the greed of the few. Home care workers help people with “disabilities, chronic illnesses, or cognitive impairment by assisting their daily living activities,” as noted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This field includes personal care aides, home health aides, nursing assistants and direct support professionals.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found 4.9 million adult patients received some form of home health care in 2013. As the senior population increases, so will the demands for home care services. Current projections indicate that home care work is the fastest growing occupation, with 1 million jobs to be added by 2026. While one cannot put a price tag on a human life and the quality of that life, the home care health industry does so under the banner of capitalism. Home care health is dominated by for-profit agencies. CDC data from 2014 indicates that of the 12,400 home care agencies operating in the U.S., 80 percent of them were for-profit organizations, with the other 20 percent nonprofit or government owned. As with other health care entities — pharmaceutical companies raise costs for lifesaving medicines and health insurance companies raise premiums — these for-profit agencies will continue overcharging clients and underpaying home care workers. Hourly wages for home care workers have “barely risen” over the past decade, according to the Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute study “Home Care Workers: Key Facts.” (phinational.org, August 2018) Adjusted for inflation, the median hourly wage for home care workers was $11.03 in 2017 compared to $10.66 in 2007. In many cases, workers have to shoulder the burden of on-the-job costs without compensation. For example, many agencies do not provide company vehicles for direct support professionals, forcing them to drive their own cars, pay for their own gas and pay for repairs.From there, it only gets worse. Home care workers have lower job stability, shorter working hours and are less likely to have fringe benefits than those working in hospitals and nursing homes. As a result, over 20 percent of home care workers live in poverty. Besides the financial toll, these jobs also take a physical and mental toll on these workers. In 2017, a study from the American Journal of Public Health concluded: “Worker’s jobs affect their health-related quality of life.” AJPH ranked home care aides (along with nursing and psychiatric aides) among the occupations “reporting the most cases of workplace injuries and illnesses.” (tinyurl.com/ybshkssn)One BMC Nursing review found that home care workers were at “higher risk of injury than registered nurses and licensed practical nurses.” (tinyurl.com/y8n599w5)The stress of the job combined with financial insecurity are responsible for the high turnover rate in this field. BMC Nursing even fears there might be a shortage of home care aides in the future.Home care health services are a necessity, as are the workers providing them. But with mass privatization and cuts to nonprofit and government-owned agencies, these services are treated as a luxury and the workers are treated as expendable. Home care workers, along with the people they help, will continue to suffer financially, mentally and physically under the current system. Only revolutionary change will provide such services to those who need them and fairly compensate those who provide them.

Photo by Garrett Podell.The Patterson impact on the city of Fort Worth has extended past the football field, as the Gary Patterson Foundation awarded $325,000 in grants to 38 elementary schools within Fort Worth Independent School District.The grant was funded to update their libraries and library collections.It was the largest grant in the foundation’s history and presented by Kelsey Patterson at Worth Heights Elementary, approximately three miles east of TCU’s campus.“It’s really exciting that we were able to grant everything that they asked for, up to $10,000 per school, which is nice,” said Patterson, a Fort Worth native and Western Hills High School graduate. “We wanted to give the librarians the ability to be creative, something that they want to do, but when the finances are going toward books or maintenance, we’re hoping that they’ll be able to do something they wouldn’t normally be able to do with an ISD budget.”The grant opportunity was introduced in mid-September to any elementary school within the Fort Worth Independent School District, and included an application for up to $10,000 per school for library updates. Those updates were offered within the following categories:• books & media (print, audio, e-books, magazines, video & online subscription resources)• furniture & fixtures (furniture, shelving/display, specialized seating & work stations)• technology & equipment (computers, mobile devices, production equipment, makerspace kits)• general supplies (book tape, labels, shelf markers, bookmarks, maker space supplies, signage for library, promotional materials, paint & hardware)The foundation partnered with the Education Foundation for Fort Worth Schools (EF4FW) to coordinate the distribution of the grant funds.While the Pattersons spend most of their time working with college students at TCU, they are aware of the significance of pouring into the younger generations.“[Fort Worth ISD superintendent Dr. Kent Scribner] will say, from birth to third grade, you learn to read and then from third grade on, you read to learn,” said Patterson. “If you don’t have the basic building blocks of reading by third grade, you’re missing out on math and science and all the other things.”Worth Heights Elementary, the site of the check presentation, will use the funding to increase their English and Spanish collections utilized for their dual-language classes as well as updating their S.T.E.M book offerings and biographies in their library.“The funding will give the students up-to-date information, which is what they deserve,” said Kathleen Hickey, the Worth Heights school librarian.”They will have more resources to support their learning when it comes to research, and hopefully books they will enjoy reading which will support their love for reading which will translate into their ability to read.”The grant opportunity will be available again in spring 2019 to schools who did not receive a fall 2018 grant.
