3 FTSE 100 dividend stocks I’d buy for a passive income today

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Rupert Hargreaves | Monday, 6th January, 2020 | More on: AAL IAG SBRY “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. It is quite straightforward to generate a passive income from stocks. Today there are plenty of FTSE 100 blue-chip companies that offer dividend yields of more than 5%.Here are three prime examples that could be worth buying 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…Anglo AmericanAnglo American (LSE: AAL) is one of the world’s largest mining groups. Global economic uncertainty seems to have contributed to the company’s lacklustre share price performance over the past few years. Still, there could be a buying opportunity here for long-term investors.Anglo currently trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9.9, which suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety. Furthermore, it has a dividend yield of 4%, covered 2.5 times by earnings per share. This suggests that the dividend yield is sustainable and could grow substantially in the years ahead. The company has the headroom to more than double its distribution to investors.Of course, as a mining concern, Anglo’s fortunes are tied to those of the economy. However, the company’s management signalled its confidence in the group’s outlook last year when it announced a $1bn share buyback. This suggests that for investors with a long-term time horizon, Anglo could be a great income and growth investment.International Consolidated AirlinesInternational Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG) has also seen its share price dogged by uncertainty recently.Rising fuel prices, a pilots’ strike, IT issues, and customer service problems have all hit investor confidence. However, the owner of the British Airways brand has continued to see rising demand for its services.Total group traffic, as measured in ‘revenue passenger kilometres’, increased by 4.9% during November 2019 versus the same period in 2018.As such, I think the stock has appeal for investors with long time horizons. It has a dividend yield of 4.3%, which is covered 3.3 times by earnings per share, once again suggesting that investors can look forward to growing dividends going forward.Alongside this attractive dividend, IAG trades at a forward P/E of 6.7, which seems to suggest that the stock offers of a wide margin of safety. With passenger numbers continuing to grow, despite the company’s problems, now could be a great time to snap up this income bargain.J SainsburyShares in J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) also appear to have been held back by investor uncertainty recently. Political uncertainty has hurt consumer spending, which has weighed on the share prices of consumer-focused stocks.Alongside this, Sainsbury’s is also facing disruption in its sector. The rise of the German discounters Aldi and Lidl, have nibbled away at the company’s market share and earnings have taken a hit.Nevertheless, growth should return this year. Analysts have pencilled in a net profit of £462m for 2020, up from £186m for 2019. As such, this could be an excellent opportunity for long-term investors who are willing to look past Sainsbury’s near-term troubles.The stock supports a dividend yield of 4.6%, which is covered 1.9 times by earnings per share. It is also dealing at a forward P/E of 11.7, suggesting a margin of safety at current levels. See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves 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.

A little World Cup in Bristol

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Youth centre: the kids at Broad Plain RFC will be hosting their own World Cup tournament this month COME SEPTEMBER, all eyes will be focused on New Zealand 2011, where the big guns of rugby union will be slugging it out for the World Cup.Meanwhile, the live action will be taking place much closer to home, at Bristol South End (St John’s Lane) home of Broad Plain RFC, who will be hosting their very own Little World Cup for south Bristol schools’ tag rugby teams.Smooth moves: there will be plenty of good skills on displayThe club is working with Ashton Park School Sports Partnership to run a tag rugby league for children in Years Five and Six, through September and October to coincide with events on the other side of the world.The after-school tournament will run over four Monday evenings, with schools assigned a country drawn out of the hat on the first meeting.center_img Planning for the event is taking place right now, and schools will receive an invite when the new school term starts.Although the Little World Cup may lack the bone-crunching tackles of the much anticipated Antipodean showdown, we can expect plenty of pace, skill and competitive spirit, judging by schools’ performances at recent Broad Plain tournaments.last_img read more

Rugby rant: Keep Rugby World Cup free to watch

first_imgAny lucractive overtures to switch to pay-TV broadcasters should be resisted by World Rugby’s power brokers All kids should have an equal chance to aspire to be the next Dan Carter or Richie McCaw, not be locked on the outside unable to breach TV’s paywall. World Rugby should show restraint; some things are not for sale.What gets on your goat? Let us know on Facebook or TwitterThis article appeared in the April edition of Rugby World LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby is in the midst of a gold rush. A year after the Six Nations was saved from the clutches of pay-TV broadcasters by a joint bid from the BBC and ITV, it’s the turn of World Rugby to flutter its eyelashes during the tender process for the 2019 World Cup broadcasting rights. There are no guarantees ITV, its UK broadcaster since 1991, will get first dibs.Plumping for a more lucrative deal from subscription broadcasters may seem like the answer, the ‘sell’ being more money to invest in grass-roots rugby and Tier Two nations across the world. After all, that is World Rugby’s remit and 90% of its revenue is raised at the quadrennial tournament. But in the UK, rugby’s most mature market, you would lose the mass scale of free-to-air television.The England v Wales humdinger at RWC 2015 was the UK’s most viewed rugby match since the 2007 World Cup final, with an audience of 11.5m, and the tournament as a whole was the most viewed in history.To my mind, television is still the medium that aspiring rugby players respond to best. I coach at Hitchin RFC and to be able to show a bunch of eight-year-old sponges how to draw a man by pulling up freely accessible smartphone clips of Johnny Sexton sending team-mate Robbie Henshaw down the wing is instructive.Role models: The next generation want to aspire to be the bestIf you want to look at the perils associated with going down the pay-TV route, look no further than cricket, which was last seen on terrestrial TV during the glorious 2005 Ashes. Participation numbers have plummeted in that sport.Rugby already has a near-saturated pay-TV rugby market. Super Rugby, the top three domestic leagues in the northern hemisphere and a host of Tests are on Sky and BT. But some competitions should be sacrosanct, otherwise you create an exclusive, elitist sport, out of reach of lower-income families and casual fans. Quite the spectacle: The Rugby World Cup final should be accessible to all last_img read more

Foto de Craig Stapert.[Episcopal News Service] En el intento de recaudar unos $300.000 de ingresos adicionales al año, la Catedral Nacional de Washington empezará a cobrar la entrada a partir del 1 de enero —con carácter experimental durante 6 meses— a los turistas que visiten el histórico edificio.Aunque cobrar la entrada es una medida nueva, la catedral les ha cobrado antes a giras especializadas y de grupos, dijo Richard Weinberg, director de comunicaciones de la catedral, en una llamada a ENS el 26 de noviembre.“El cambio que va a ser efectivo el 1 de enero es que se le cobrará la entrada a cualquiera que venga a hacer turismo, ya se trate de una visita autónoma o de un tour docente para ver lo más destacado”, dijo él.A los visitantes adultos se les cobrará $10, y a las personas de la tercera edad, niños, estudiantes, veteranos y miembros de las Fuerzas Armadas se les cobrará $6, dijo David J. Kautter, presidente del Cabildo de la Catedral, en una declaración dirigida a los miembros, donantes y voluntarios [del santuario]. La catedral seguirá asequible [sin costo] para los que vengan a orar, a participar del culto o en busca de cuidado pastoral, y ofrecerá entrada gratuita los domingos, agregó.“El Cabildo [o junta gobernante] y el liderazgo de la catedral tienen presente la principal identidad de la catedral como casa de oración y como comunidad de fe viva en la tradición episcopal. “Pese a las maravillas de arte y arquitectura que hay aquí, la catedral no es un museo”.“Los voluntarios, los miembros de la congregación de la catedral y los miembros de la Asociación de la Catedral Nacional podrán entrar gratis”, añadió. “Volveremos a estar pronto en contacto, en la medida en que las políticas y los procedimientos para la fijar la tarifa de entrada concluyan a lo largo de los próximos meses”.La decisión de cobrar la entrada se tomó “con renuencia”, dijo Gary Hall, deán de la Catedral, a Prensa Asociada en un artículo del 25 de noviembre, en el que hacía notar que las catedrales e iglesias en Europa cobran una tarifa de entrada a los turistas.“Todo lo que cobramos es esencialmente por el turismo”, dijo Hall. “No cobramos por los servicios esenciales de la catedral”.En 2012, 375.000 personas, además de los miembros de la parroquia y otros feligreses, visitaron la catedral; un aumento en relación con los 275.000 que la visitaron en 2011, cuando en agosto de ese año la catedral sufrió daños por valor de $26 millones debido a un raro terremoto de 5,8 de magnitud y se mantuvo cerrada durante más de 60 días. Desde entonces, la catedral ha recaudado $10 millones en fondos para la restauración.Aunque es menos común cobrar la entrada a catedrales e iglesias en Estados Unidos que en Europa, al menos dos catedrales episcopales y una iglesia en el país les cobran a las excursiones.La iglesia catedral de San Juan el Teólogo [Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine] en Nueva York no cobra por entrar en la catedral, pero sí cobra hasta $15 por sus visitas destacadas, verticales y prominentes [Highlights, Vertical and Spotlight tours]. La iglesia de La Trinidad [Trinity Church] en Boston, cobra $7 por las visitas guiadas o autónomas. La catedral de La Gracia [Grace Cathedral] de San Francisco, California, cobra $25 por su gran tour.A la Catedral Nacional de Washington, que es la sede tanto del obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal como del obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Washington, D.C., con frecuencia se le llama el “hogar espiritual” de la nación. Está situada en la avenida Wisconsin, a unos 8 kilómetros al noroeste del Capitolio, que se levanta en el extremo oriental de la Explanada Nacional y los parques conmemorativos.En 2012, Washington, D.C. recibió un récord de 18,9 millones de turistas, la mayoría de los cuales (16,9 millones) procedían del interior de Estados Unidos, según Destination DC, la oficina de turismo oficial de la ciudad.Mientras el Capitolio y otros populares destinos turísticos e instituciones culturales patrocinadas por el gobierno (incluida la Galería Nacional, el Museo Smithsonian, los monumentos a Lincoln, Jefferson y a los  Veteranos de Vietnam; el Monumento a Washington y el Cementerio de Arlington) ofrecen entrada gratis, la catedral se autosostiene y funciona con un presupuesto anual de $13,3 millones.Esta independencia económica, resaltó Kautter, “aumenta la libertad de la catedral de expresarse libremente en la escena pública y de convocar a personas de todas las religiones. Pero también nos exige buscar otros medios que garanticen nuestra sostenibilidad”.Luego de igualar ingresos y egresos en 2010, la catedral operó con un superávit de $400.000 tanto en 2011 como en 2012. Este año, la catedral operó con un déficit de $1,6 millones como resultado de una disminución de su recaudación anual, dijo Weinberg.“Es digno de notar que la catedral depende de la filantropía para cubrir del 65 al 70 por ciento de sus réditos operativos anuales”, dijo él a través de un correo electrónico el 26 de noviembre en respuesta a preguntas de ENS. “Los gastos operativos para el año fiscal 2013 estuvieron acordes con nuestro plan para el año”.En su declaración de principios, la catedral enuncia que “será un catalizador de la armonía espiritual en nuestra nación, de la renovación en las iglesias, de la reconciliación entre las fes y de la compasión en nuestro mundo”. Además de ofrecer aproximadamente 2.200 servicios de culto anualmente, la catedral se esfuerza por estar a la altura de esos principios al ofrecer una amplia variedad de conciertos y foros, algunos gratis, algunos a precios modestos, agregó Weinberg.La Junta Nacional para la Preservación Histórica designó a la catedral un “tesoro nacional” en 2012. En agosto de ese año, la catedral recibió una subvención de $5 millones de la Dotación Lily para iniciar la restauración después del terremoto. En mayo de 2013, obtuvo el primer lugar en una competencia de Asociados en la Preservación [Partners in Preservation], por lo cual recibió una donación de $100.000 destinada a su restauración.“Estamos llamados a preservar y restaurar un edificio que tiene más de un siglo y a ofrecer programas que tengan un impacto en nuestra ciudad, nuestra nación y el mundo”, dijo Kautter. Para sostener esa obra, debemos poner en práctica esta política de entrada tarifada cuidadosamente concebida, y creo que todos los que desean lo mejor para la catedral podrán entenderla”.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

In the living/dining area you are therefore sitting – inside as well as outside – at treetop height, which creates a wonderful atmosphere. Despite the height difference, there is direct access to the garden: a slightly raised slope directly in front of the patio leads down to the green area and is enthusiastically used by children to play in summer and winter!Save this picture!© Michael SchnellThe rooms are well-lit and the carefully thought-out details are subtly but effectively emphasised. For example, the floor-level window in the living room hides the neighbours and provides an atmospheric view into the green foliage. At the same time it captures the low-lying evening sun and immerses the living room in an ambient light.Save this picture!© Michael SchnellIncidentally: the stones that, as expected, were found when excavating the foundation pit were incorporated in the preliminary stages in the building design: they can now be found in the natural stone facade and the sloping garden!Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessNovo Mesto Central Market Competition Entry / EnotaUnbuilt ProjectTechTown District Plan / Sasaki AssociatesUnbuilt Project Share 2010 CopyAbout this officeLiebel Architekten BDAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAalenHousesGermanyPublished on April 24, 2013Cite: “Affalterwang / Liebel Architekten BDA” 24 Apr 2013.

Under pressure, Yale RebLaw conference rescinds keynote offer to Philly DA; instead invites political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal

first_imgThe following edited press statement was released on Feb. 1.Cambridge, Mass. – Organizers of the Rebellious Lawyering (RebLaw) conference at Yale Law School rescinded a speaking invitation to Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner. The celebrated “progressive” DA was scheduled to be one of the keynote speakers at the 25-year-old conference on the weekend of Feb. 15-16. But earlier this week a coalition of Harvard law students and lawyers wrote to conference organizers, saying that Philadelphia prosecutors could not be counted in the tradition of rebellious lawyers. Their impassioned letter condemned DA Krasner’s decision to appeal a recent court order that granted Mumia Abu-Jamal the right to re-appeal his conviction. The letter also challenged the notion that a prosecutor could hold that title. In their letter to RebLaw, they said, “The so-called progressive Larry Krasner is hell-bent on keeping [Mumia’s case] out of the appellate process. Larry Krasner was voted into office by the Black, working-class people of Philadelphia, but in the hour of truth he has upheld the rulings of racist judges [in this case] and is doing the bidding of one of the country’s most corrupt and homicidal police forces.” (tinyurl.com/y7vdof43)The signers added, “Prosecutors, those managers of the oppressive state, regardless of the rhetoric they may espouse during a campaign, should not be invited to speak at a conference for Rebellious Lawyering.”Signator Harvard Law student Anneke Dunbar-Gronke noted, “Krasner will go down in history as the well-meaning, ‘progressive’ DA who opposed justice in the case of the Nelson Mandela of our time.”Another Harvard Law student, Felipe Hernández, concluded, “The lesson here is that in the mind of a progressive DA, justice is doled out selectively and only when there is no real political risk involved. Thankfully the conference participants will hear from Mumia, an actual jailhouse lawyer — and pinnacle of rebellious lawyering.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
