With 65 per cent of the FTSE’s revenue coming from overseas, it is in a strong position to gain from global economic growth, regardless of a more pessimistic outlook closer to home in the UK and Eurozone. “Despite headlines of doom and gloom the FTSE 100 is well placed to benefit,” predicted Justin Urquhart-Stewart, marketing director at Seven Investment Management. “There’s about a 40 per cent chance of a 10 per cent rise up to somewhere around 6,666 points,” he continued. “But there’s a 20 per cent chance of a gain up to a high of 7,000 points.” However, according to Urquhart-Stewart the gain is likely to happen earlier in 2011, with greater concern towards the end of the year about where the growth is coming from. Other analysts have also been bullish about the FTSE’s prospects for 2011, with Graham Secker of Morgan Stanley reported as predicting a rise to 7,000 points if economic growth is strong and interest rates remain low.The last time the index rose to close to 7,000 points was in 1999, when it peaked at 6,930.2 at the height of the dot com boom. In 2010 the FTSE just breached 6,000 points on 23 December, before dipping to close at 5996.07 – the highest level it had reached since pre-credit crisis trading in June 2008. Neil Shah of Edison Investment Research was more cautious about the FTSE’s prospects, with the company’s year-end prediction set at 6,400 points, an 8.5 per cent increase on the 2010 final figure of 5,899.94. But even the bearish commentators admitted the index could see bigger gains before a year-end fall. “It’s very possible that it could go higher at some point,” said Shah. “We think this will be a good year for the equity markets and there will be volatility before the year end.” Shah cited inflation as the biggest contributor to the predicted gain. “Equities tend to do well out of inflation, though it’s a delicate balance,” he said. “A little bit is good; too much is not.” last_img read more

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. National Grid (LSE: NG) shares look cheap compared to their trading history. In my opinion, I think this is a great opportunity. The firm is one of the most defensive investments on the London market. As such, I reckon it has the potential to produce high total returns for its shareholders in the years ahead.National Grid shares on offerMany investors, including this author, like to own utility stocks for their defensive nature. The utility business is hardly the most exciting in the world, but it does produce steady, predictable returns. In times of uncertainty, these regular returns can be worth their weight in gold. 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…National Grid shares offer these defensive qualities. The organisation owns and operates the majority of England’s electricity grid. The firm also operates an extensive network of grid assets on the East Coast of the United States. Returns from these assets are highly regulated, but that’s no bad thing. Every couple of years, the group agrees on a pricing plan with regulators fixing profit margins for the next few years. This means management can roughly predict how much income the business will book for in the short term. That gives managers more room to plan cash returns to investors and capital investment plans. Diversification One area where management has been investing during the past 10 years is the group’s US business. As the US arm grows, I’m more attracted to National Grid shares. By operating overseas as well in the UK, the company has diversified its income stream. And, in my experience, diversification usually leads to larger, more predictable returns for investors. Indeed, in recent years the firm has been able to use the extra cash flow from its US business to support dividend growth, according to my research. When it comes to dividend credentials, National Grid shares have some of the best in the FTSE 100. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 5.2%, and the payout is well-covered by the firm’s earnings per share.What’s more, the group has a good track record of dividend increases. The payout has grown at a compound annual rate of around 1% for the past decade. That may not be the fastest growth rate in the world but, personally, I’d rather have this steady growth rate than own a firm that hikes its payout 50% one year and cuts it the next. Overall, when considering the recent performance of National Grid shares, and the company’s long-term potential, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio. The firm’s defensive nature and reputation for steady dividend income is highly desirable.Further, as the group continues to reinvest capital into its operations, I can see profits growing steadily in the years ahead. If my figures are correct, this should yield capital growth for shareholders as well. Are National Grid shares a bargain stock to buy right now?

first_img Holding court: Eddie Jones held one of the more unusual press conferences pre-Scotland Ahead of Scotland it was about all about a dog.Jones is usually eminently quotable but was not quite in his normal league on Thursday when he, and the some of his players, tried to persuade the press that Owen Farrell had been injured in a tangle with Jones’ dog Annie.“He could be in doubt, mate,” Jones said: “Could be in doubt. He’s got a bad leg, so he couldn’t finish training. I think he ran into my dog, he ran into her! He’ll be alright. I think he’ll be alright.“Annie is a pretty tricky runner and sometimes she gets off the leash. He just ran into someone at training – as simple as that. He’ll be alright, possibly.” That cleared that one up then.Dog tale: Did Eddie’s dog, Annie, trip up the injured Owen Farrell?And, on Tuesday, we had the whiteboards episode. At training one enterprising photographer took pictures of two white boards that appeared to give a strong hint to England’s starting line-up for the Calcutta Cup match.The squad was training with 13 men against 15, a common method, and the boards seemed to tell us that Jonathan Joseph, Ben Youngs and Jack Nowell would all be back in the run-on team and so would Billy Vunipola. And sure enough Joseph, Youngs and Nowell were all promoted but Vunipola was not.Big Billy is a big player for England and has been big news recently after he came back from a knee injury and played for Saracens the weekend before. But come Thursday, he was named on the bench and Jones was up to his old tricks again. The week before England’s Six Nations game against Scotland was one of the strangest weeks on Planet Eddie since he took over in December 2015 but we should have seen it coming.Eddie Jones is a master of deflecting attention from his team and this week it was all about Eddie – just as it was after Italy had put a spanner in the England works a fortnight before. And, frankly, if a bloke has presided over as long a winning streak as Jones has done he is probably entitled to say what he likes. He is probably even entitled to his Twickenham tirade after the win over Italy in the third round of the tournament.Eddie expects: England haven’t hit their straps and a performance is expectedBut some observers reckon he was miffed after the Italy game because the opposing coaches, Conor O’Shea and Brendan Venter, had managed to get in the ear of referee Romain Poite and had effectively got one over him.So he had a crack and most of the words in the Monday papers were concentrating on what Jones said rather than his team’s inability to adapt to the Italians’ tactics for 40 minutes – but let’s not forget, Jones has been on the other side of the fence.Jones has tried to get in the ear of referees before. During the 2003 World Cup, when Jones was in charge of the Wallabies, he was preparing his side for a match against Romania, in Brisbane, which they would eventually win 90-8.Jones had bigger fish to fry and at one of the pre-match press conferences he showed the assembled hacks a video. It was of England, who the Aussies were not due to play for about a month, and what he perceived as their illegal use of a truck-and-trailer maul. He was simply putting some doubt in the minds of referees who would be officiating England further down the line.Aussie agenda: Eddie Jones has enjoyed the theatre of international rugbyIn the final, which England won in extra-time, Clive Woodward’s team got on the wrong side of the referee, Andre Watson, and whether Jones had anything to do with that has never been clear. But the Australians were on the verge of winning the World Cup and you would not have put it past him to have a word with Watson ahead of the match.And back in 2000, when he was in charge of the Brumbies, Jones had a ding-dong with the Crusaders coach Robbie Deans over their legality at the line-out. He has been doing it for donkeys’ and he will continue to do it if it keeps the heat off his squad.And in this Six Nations the mind games have continued. There was the saga with the roof in Cardiff and wondering if the Scotland team could handle the ‘expectations of a nation’. It is all good copy and it means the last thing that gets written about is his team. Jones has a thick enough skin to not worry about what is written about him – he is just worried about winning. And if that means copping some flak from the press, then so be it.Looking skywards: There was a palaver over the opening of the Principality Stadium roofEngland had not hit their straps in the first three games of the tournament, Jones knows it and he is king of setting the agenda. So there was no chat about world records, Grand Slams or a slightly mis-firing team. Eddie Jones was in spiky form this week – but he has a long track record of mind games and a thick skincenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Key man: the selection of Billy Vunipola was shrouded in mystery“The Daily Telegraph picked him for us and we decided we’d change our minds,” he said. “We didn’t say he was going to start. The boards weren’t left out by accident.”The boards might not have been left out by accident – and they did hoodwink some people – but nothing Jones ever does is an accident. Jones has given us a lot to write about since taking the England job – he even gives us something to write about when he says nothing.last_img read more

first_imgI’ve played England U16, U18 and U19.And do you hope to play for England at Test level?I have three options – Italy, Australia and England. If I get chosen for international rugby for any team that would be the pinnacle of my career. International rugby is the best you can get, other than the Lions.Right now I’m in England, my family and friends are here, but we’ll see where my career leads. If I get the chance for England, Australia or Italy, I’ll take it. It’s what I’m aiming for, but first it’s about getting in the Harlequins first team and playing regularly. I don’t want to get ahead of myself.Any childhood heroes? I wouldn’t say heroes but people I look up to, take bits from their game and put them in mine. Ben Smith is one of the best full-backs – not because he does anything flashy but because he does everything really well.Mike Brown is my mentor at Quins and I’ve looked up to him for a long time. Within a year of him being my mentor, my game has reached another level because of what he’s told me.The biggest influence on your career? Probably my dad. He’s watched me play growing up and gives advice. He’s done everything you can do in rugby, both winning and decision-making, what to do in your career trajectory, so it’s pretty handy having him in my corner.What do you do away from rugby? Right now I’m focused more on my rugby but I’m definitely looking to study. This is the last year of my contract so once my future is set out and I know what I’m doing, I’ll look at uni. There’s a course at LSE, economic history, that looks really interesting.RW Verdict: Lynagh made his Premiership debut against Leicester at the end of last season and is looking for more game time in 2020-21. His next contract – whether at Quins or elsewhere – may determine where his Test future lies. Comfortable at 15 or on the wing, he is eligible for England, Italy and Australia Break time: Harlequins’ Louis Lynagh on the attack against Bristol (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Harlequins full-back Louis LynaghDate of birth 3 December 2000 Born Treviso, Italy Position Full-back Club Harlequins Country EnglandWhere did you start playing? Richmond on Sundays, aged four.

Full-back is my main position but I’m comfortable at wing too.What are your strengths? High-ball catching, getting my hands on the ball, running – I’m quite quick.When did you link up with Harlequins? At 13. At the start we’d train once every month, then with the EPDG we’d train every Monday night and there would be camps in half-terms.

They do this by services such as recreation, safety, representatives, development and protection of our environment. The government is there to listen to the citizens and prioritize what is important to them and take action on those issues. Locally, representatives do a variety of services specific to the area. Our local government advertises our city to others to encourage people to move here and to open business here. They evaluate the need for housing, roads and businesses and help to make sure those needs are met. While doing this, they make sure our environment is protected, including rivers, lakes, air and noise control. The local government provides recreation such as sports, events, and parks. They provide safety such as maintained roads, waste disposal, police and fire departments. Most importantly they provide representatives that have the best interest of the entire community. Overall, the most important role of the government is to be a public servant to all its citizens. Previous articleApopka City Council Seat 4 Candidate Q&A – Week 4Next articleSingle Member Districts: Let the Voters Decide Claire Haslett RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The role of government is multifaceted with the common purpose to keep the public safe, sound, and strong in an equitable and fair manner as public servants. This is accomplished through an inseparable focus on safety, infrastructure, and stewardship.Public safety comes first, for without that the rest breaks down. Once general peace and safety are established, infrastructure becomes the focus in a fair and equitable manner without favoritism for any one group over another.None of these things can be accomplished without the proper stewardship of resources. Understanding that the purpose of public taxation is solely for that which benefits all equally is key to good fiscal policy. In the preamble it is called the general welfare, and we must not look to government to solve all social ills, but rather to ourselves as a community, with the government supporting and encouraging such goals as are for the common good.Finally, we must remember our rights come from God not government, as they are “endowed by our creator” and inalienable. Government must in a humble manner protect the rights of all equally. No cronyism, favoritism, or prejudice should cloud our view as we seek liberty and justice for all. Doug BanksonAlice NolanSam Ruth From the earliest times government was meant to protect citizens from harm and to commend those who do well. I also believe government is limited in scope to what individuals cannot do for themselves. Funds spent should have a public purpose.Thankfully the citizens reflected this understanding during the recent visioning process. Police and fire services polled as their top priority. Unfortunately, though, our police department has never received accreditation. I support the Chief’s efforts in this regard. The 2016 budget includes funding for 10 new police officers with equipment and a fire station.Public purpose and accountability are key for expenditures. This explains my concern over $200,000 of tax money given in early 2014 to a private trust fund. The board members, one being my opponent, for nearly a year refused to release minutes, policies or accounting. I, on the other hand, have insisted on extensive public budget workshops and meeting details posted online.Roads, water, sewer, garbage, lighting, land use, parks & recreation are also a purpose of government. Over the last 21 months, I have championed new sidewalks, park renovations, and a local preference policy. It has been an honor serving Apopka.

first_img Text description provided by the architects. Behavior of TreesPeople that use buildings live at a location that is physically close to nature. This can serve as a springboard for transcending the dichotomy of manmade things and nature, and help nurture a rich relationship between people and nature. Therefore, as architects, we observe trees with an unprecedented level of detail. Our designs are tailored to the unique behavior of trees, and to how the branches, leaves and roots grow. This approach is similar to how landscape gardeners perform their work. There are many architects that assume the site is vacant, and generally perform design work in a design studio far from the site. However, we carefully and closely observe the environmental conditions of the site, and do everything we can to formulate a design that responds to and complements the site.Save this picture!movements of treesRecommended ProductsWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWith a Localized Response to TreesSave this picture!Courtesy of hiroshi nakamura & napThis is a housing complex situated in a prime location in Tokyo. The rear of the site has a grove of trees 40 meters wide that are growing on a slope. We decided to formulate a design that provided maximum volume while cutting as few of these trees as possible. We first investigated the location of the roots with the help of an arborist, and placed the structural walls at a location as close as possible to the trees where the thick roots would not have to be cut. We snaked the underground beams to avoid coming into contact with large roots. Next, we measured all branches measuring 15cm or more in diameter with a unique methodology that we developed, and created a three dimensional computer image from this data. We then simulated the growth of the trees and the swaying of the branches during typhoons to determine the spaces where there would be no branches, and located rooms in these spaces. This did result in rooms that have irregular external shapes, but it was a result of accepting the natural environment as it is. Creating a building that responds in a localized manner to the trees rather than cutting down or trimming the trees is similar to how birds build their nests. This should bring about a new awareness and criticism of architecture that commits the original sin of destroying the environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of hiroshi nakamura & napResonance of BehaviorsSave this picture!Courtesy of hiroshi nakamura & napThe inside of the building consists of large spaces such as one-room combined living / dining areas and kitchens with reinforced concrete walls, and small spaces such as bathrooms and studies built with a steel frame structure that extend into the trees. All of the rooms are located close to the trees, enabling the green foliage that is reflected and amplified by basins and mirrors to be seen from virtually all locations inside the building. Desks, bookshelves, bathtubs and washbasins are provided near the windows to create space where the people get the feeling that they are living together with the trees. This gives people the opportunity to look at squirrels in the trees and the leaves, smell the fragrance of flowers and hear the warbling of small birds. When people live in interior space that is created in response to the behavior of the trees and other elements of nature, the behavior of people tends to evolve. The respective actions and activities resonate with one another, people gradually integrate nature into themselves, and it becomes part of them. It think that a love for nature is created as a result this interaction being repeated.Save this picture!sectionProject gallerySee allShow lessTransit Oriented City – Dongtan Central Business Master Plan / Ojanen Chiou Architec…ArticlesForumtorget / White ArchitectsArticles Share Houses Save this picture!Courtesy of hiroshi nakamura & nap+ 8 Share Japan Projects 2007 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/198397/dancing-trees-singing-birds-hiroshi-nakamura-nap Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeHiroshi Nakamura & NAPOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesTokyoJapanPublished on January 11, 2012Cite: “Dancing Trees, Singing Birds / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP” 11 Jan 2012.
