first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The Oracle of Omaha has struck his first deal since the stock market crash in March. Warren Buffett’s firm Berkshire Hathaway is spending around $10bn to acquire US firm Dominion Energy, which owns gas pipelines and storage facilities.Dominion will be added to Mr Buffett’s existing holdings in the energy sector, which include UK regional electricity network operator Northern Powergrid.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…At the Berkshire Hathaway AGM in May, Mr Buffett described his energy businesses as “a great way to stay real rich”. What he means is that these are reliable long-term assets that produce stable cash flows — ideal for dividend investors.What should UK investors buy to emulate Mr Buffett’s strategy? I’ve found three FTSE 100 dividend stocks that I think fit the bill.A solid 5.3% dividend yieldOne attraction of Dominion’s gas pipelines and storage facilities is that they’ll be needed regardless of gas prices. You aren’t betting on commodity prices, which is always risky. In the FTSE 100, I think that National Grid (LSE: NG) provides a very similar opportunity for investors.This business runs most of the UK’s gas and electricity transmission network, along with a utility business in the northeastern USA.Although National Grid has to invest large amounts of capital in its network, its assets provide steady, regulated returns over many years. As you’d expect, this business has proved to be a good income stock.National Grid’s dividend hasn’t been cut since 1996 and currently provides a yield of 5.3%. After this year’s widespread dividend cuts, not many other companies in the FTSE 100 offer this level of income. I think the shares are a safe buy for income investors.Warren Buffett wanted to buy this companyMr Buffett’s unsuccessful attempt to buy Unilever (LSE: ULVR) in 2017 highlighted his interest in this sector. Unilever owns a huge portfolio of everyday brands that are stocked in people’s kitchens and bathrooms all over the world.Unilever shares are rarely cheap, but this business generates higher returns than National Grid and has an impressive record of long-term growth. So I’d be comfortable paying a little more for these shares.That’s just as well, as the Unilever share price has bounced back strongly from March’s stock market crash. However, even with the shares trading at around £43, Unilever shares still offer a 3.4% dividend yield. I’d view this as a reasonable income, especially as Unilever’s dividend hasn’t been cut since 1966.This stock is on my buy listMy final pick is FTSE 100 packaging group DS Smith (LSE: SMDS). Shares in the group have performed poorly this year, but I think this is the kind of stable long-term business Warren Buffett might buy.DS Smith’s pre-tax profit rose by 5% to £368m during the last year, which ended on 30 April. The current year has had a difficult start due to Covid-19, but I think the company’s focus on consumer goods and internet retail should support medium-term growth.I’ve owned these shares for a while and see them as a long-term income holding. I’m hoping to be able to buy more while they’re trading under 300p.DS Smith’s dividend was cancelled last year, but broker forecasts suggest a payout of 14p for 2020/21. This would give a dividend yield of 5%. With the shares trading on just 10 times forecast earnings, I think now is a good time to buy.

first_img Q House / asensio_mah + J.M.Aguirre Aldaz Architects: asensio_mah + J.M.Aguirre Aldaz Year Completion year of this architecture project Text description provided by the architects. The house is a conscious exercise in developing an alternative domestic environment to the surrounding villas of the new suburban neighborhood. The solutions for the development so far have typically been compact villas located on abruptly leveled gardens, irrespective of the complex topographical condition of their sites. Our ambition for producing an alternative domestic atmosphere is developed by constructing a more explicit relationship between the house and garden with the existing conditions of the steep site. Save this picture!This organizational strategy for the house sought to register the difference in topography within the parcel by organizing a series of terraces that configure the framework for a landscape with differentiated characters. This deliberate geometric configuration affords multiple readings of the outline of the house while facilitating a rich experiential lifestyle within its volume and landscape. Specific organizational and material strategies were developed to produce different volumetric and perceptual readings that change with the different vantage points towards and within the house. Save this picture!The building is organized in three bands that are arranged around a central circulation core. These three bands maintain a prevailing orientation in the northeast-southwest direction to secure maximum daylight in every room. While the bands configure and organize the different rooms, the circulation core underpins a switchback pattern of shifting orientations with the gradual vertical movement through the house. The house is clad in dark “composite” panels that have been customized with digital fabrication techniques. These customized panels are used to articulate sections of the house volume in order to introduce legibility to the overall form. These panels offer a range of different surface consistencies and patterns to the house that reflect the sites changing light conditions in multiple ways, producing an ever changing range of texture and tones.Project gallerySee allShow lessFacebook Fan Page: Your best rendersArticlesEco Towers / Greeen!

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR A sketch of the proposed Gortadroma gasification plant.A sketch of the proposed Gortadroma gasification plant.THE proposed gasification plant in Gortadroma has been a “total slap in the face for local democracy”.This was the view of Social Democrats General Election candidate for County Limerick, Senator James Heffernan, as he outlined some of the key issues that he feels need a “greater spotlight” during his campaign launch.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Senator Heffernan pointed out that a public representative’s job is to “represent the public” and insisted that they should not be involved in “closed door meetings and rushed deals”.Speaking about the Gortadroma debacle, Heffernan commented, “Planning needs to be transparent. With a project of this scale every councillor should have been fully briefed and the local communities consulted before anything was signed.”“The county council management and local representatives have really dropped the ball on this one. I hope that that was down to a lack of understanding, and possibly even naivety, and not anything untoward. I pleaded with management not to sign anything before local people were consulted but they rushed to get the ‘shake hands’ money that the company offered, without any consideration for people,” he claimed.Another key issue for the Social Democrats’ election hopeful is the A&E Department at the University Hospital Limerick.“It is like something out of a war zone. On our visit we saw people have to suffer the indignity of waiting on trolleys in a corridor. This is a stark example of the Government’s failure in health,” Heffernan declared.He also sees the lack of a Cork-Limerick motorway as another issue that’s having significant impact on the lives of local people. This project, he feels, is badly needed for proper regional development.“The roads that currently serve Limerick are way below standard and without the correct infrastructure we will not attract the right investments,” he said.The Kilfinane native was first elected to Limerick County Council in 2009 as a member of the Labour Party and was elected to Seanad Éireann in 2011. He resigned the party whip in 2012 following claims of bribery offers in lieu of his vote for Budget 2013 which contained cuts to children’s allowance and disability services.“The Labour Party “don’t have a recollection” about trying to bribe me to vote for cuts to the most vulnerable in society, children and the disabled. Well I have a very clear recollection of this happening. It did happen, and it was wrong.” Advertisement Twitter WhatsApp Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live TAGSgasificationgeneral election 2016GortadromalimerickSenator James HeffernanSocial Democrats Print Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashcenter_img Email Linkedin NewsLocal NewsGasification plant a key election issue for HeffernanBy Alan Jacques – February 4, 2016 771 Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Facebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Previous articleQuinlivan says recycling tax should be dumpedNext articleKilquane right-of-way for consideration Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie last_img read more

first_imgFor more than 60 yr, electronic tags (including acoustic transmitters, archival loggers, and satellite tags) have been applied to free-ranging marine vertebrates to track their behaviour and characterize their spatial ecology. However, only recently have researchers begun using electronic tags to elucidate the processes that relate directly to fitness, i.e. the ability of organisms to survive and reproduce. We briefly review the history of tracking studies focused on marine vertebrates and then provide a general overview of studies that have used tracking to address fitness-related questions. Although many studies have used at-sea movement and activity data to better understand feeding ecology, physiology, and energetics, there is growing interest in the coupling of electronic tracking techniques with other disciplines to resolve the mechanisms underlying individual fitness, or more precisely the proxies thereof (survival, timing of reproduction, foraging success, etc.). We categorized studies into 4 general fitness-related areas: (1) foraging dynamics, energetics, and growth; (2) migration and other non-breeding season activities; (3) survival; and (4) reproduction. Despite recent advances in tracking technologies, which include multi-sensor loggers, tri-axial accelerometers, and miniaturized geopositioning systems, etc., very few studies on wild marine vertebrates truly measure individual fitness or proxies thereof. There is thus a need to design experimental, multi-disciplinary, and longitudinal studies that use genetics, individual-based modeling, and other techniques in an effort to resolve the mechanisms responsible for individual variation in fitness in marine vertebrates.last_img read more
