Forget Cash ISAs. I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 dividend stocks today for a passive income

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. The FTSE 100’s market crash may cause some income investors to pivot from shares to other assets, such as Cash ISAs, when seeking to make a passive income. Cash ISAs offer far less risk than stocks. But their returns could be relatively unattractive in an era where low interest rates look set to remain in place.As such, buying FTSE 100 shares that have the capacity to pay rising dividends over the coming years could be a sound move. Here are two prime examples of large-cap shares that could offer strong income returns, despite an uncertain global economic outlook.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…FTSE 100 pharma stock AstraZenecaThe recent quarterly update from pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) highlighted its growth credentials. The FTSE 100 business reported a 17% rise in its sales compared to the same period of the previous year. And its core earnings increased by 21%.Further growth could be ahead for the business over the long run. It has invested heavily in its pipeline over recent years. And it has developed a relatively strong position in emerging economies such as China. This could allow it to sustain a high growth rate that merits an upward revaluation for its share price.AstraZeneca also offers defensive characteristics. This could make it a relatively popular stock among income investors due to the ongoing risks facing the world economy. Its dividend yield currently stands at just 2.6%. But it could rise at a relatively brisk pace over the coming years as the company’s bottom line moves higher.While there may be higher-yielding shares available in the FTSE 100, the dividend growth potential and defensive nature of AstraZeneca’s business model could make it a reliable means of producing a strong passive income in the coming years.Imperial BrandsImperial Brands (LSE: IMB) recently reported that coronavirus has not had a material impact on its financial performance. As such, the FTSE 100 stock could offer defensive appeal at a time when many companies are facing challenging financial outlooks.Of course, Imperial Brands faces its own challenges at the present time. Falling cigarette volumes, disappointing growth rates for its next-generation products versus forecasts and a management shakeup could mean that the FTSE 100 former favourite displays a degree of volatility in the short run. Likewise, the company may seek to reduce its debt levels as per industry rivals. As part of this strategy, it recently disposed of its cigar business.With a dividend yield of 12%, Imperial Brands is currently one of the highest-yielding shares in the FTSE 100. A management change may mean that there is scope for its dividend policy to be updated. But investors appear to have factored in a wide margin of safety into the company’s share price. As such, with a defensive business model and strong pricing power in its tobacco portfolio, Imperial Brands could offer a relatively robust passive income over the long run.

Building on an exceptional site. In a key position between the old suburban neighbourhood and the urban fabric formed by the Allées Charles de Fitte lanes, the site is opposite Toulouse’s emblematic Abattoirs museum. The position is exceptional, with open, far-reaching views over quality green spaces (the Raymond VI gardens, the centre of the city block, and the river Garonne) and the historic city centre. It is very visible, marking the extremity of the row of lanes and the corner where they meet the Rue de Bourrassol. Different scales. On an urban scale, the project assumes a position and massing that seeks to continue the range of existing scales of building, completing the city block: On the lanes, the large scale of the neighbouring 11-storey building. Rue de Bourrassol, the 7-storey apartment buildings. At the centre of the block, the 2- and 3-storey suburban houses. On the scale of the boulevards, the fragmentation of the volume creates a varied relief from 6-storey to 9-storey. The facade on the lanes side is sequenced by a play of occasional full-height returns, creating the impression of five attached buildings and establishing the individual identity of each. The preserved historic facade is integrated into the overall composition. On the ground floor, two undercrofts lead through to the centre of the block, ensuring the preservation of the historic Abattoirs passageway.Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Philippe RuaultHousing. In the apartment buildings, double-aspect or full-depth configurations facing east, west and south are prioritised for the large units (2-, 3- and 4-bedroom). These principles, fostering the orientation (sunlight and views) and ventilation of each unit, produce quality apartments that meet the latest environmental standards. Each unit has access to an external area equivalent to 20% of its habitable space. At the centre of the block, the ‘suburban houses’ contain split-level 3-bedroom housing units with a private garden, orientated away from the street-side buildings. The central plot is left free to provide enjoyable space for residents. Identity. The terracotta facades are pierced with large openings to capture the best views and orientations (low window breasts, openings without lintel returns). The regularity of these openings accentuates the impression of verticality and sequencing. The openings are grouped by unit to establish clusters of windows and blinds on the facade. This minimises the proliferation of multiple openings inherent in apartment buildings. The facade works on the scale of the public space that it delimits. At the centre of the block, the facades are animated by the simple alternating of panels and windows. The openings are positioned so as to orientate the volumes and minimise overlooking neighbouring buildings. With the shutters closed, the ensemble reads as a single, monochrome volume. Rational and longevity. The building system based on load-bearing party walls and in-filled facades is simple and rational so as to be economical.Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultIn keeping with the surroundings (the Abattoirs contemporary art museum, ramparts, etc.), the street-side buildings are faced in terracotta brick slips in natural red-orange tints. The colours vary slightly to reinforce the outline of the buildings. The windows are in anodised aluminium, the contrast of its smooth and silky finish with the rough, matte bricks reinforcing the contemporary feel of the project. At the centre of the block, the platform-buildings are dressed in matte aluminium panels. The ground is covered in grey granite, a nod to the traditional Toulouse courtyard, and serving both as access to the housing at the centre of the block, and as communal space for the the residents.Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultProject gallerySee allShow less4 Films Where Climate Change Affects Cities and LandscapesArchitecture NewsMVRDV Wins Competition to Design Potsdam’s Creative Quarter Master PlanArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:97 Allées Charles de Fitte 93, 31300 Toulouse, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

May Heat Could Produce Strange Looking Crops

first_imgBased in Tippecanoe County, Diedrick says this is a year to forget the calendar because everything will be earlier than normal, especially weeds, “Our winter annuals came on quicker, and our summer annual weds got off to a fast start.”  He cautioned growers to pay attention to what is going on in their fields and read all labels carefully when applying insecticides and herbicides.

Home Indiana Agriculture News May Heat Could Produce Strange Looking Crops May Heat Could Produce Strange Looking Crops Diedrick says a more serious concern this year will be insects. A mild winter and early spring heat will lead to heavy insect pressure, “Especially bean leaf beetles in soybeans and black cutworms in corn.”   He said the warm temperature will benefit the insects, “They like a warm spring day just as much as we do.”  He urges growers to scout their field carefully and early this year. Keith DiedrickWith most of Indiana’s corn and soybeans planted, attention now turns to early crop development.  April was a month of below average temperatures, while May is shaping up to be one of above normal temps.  As a result, our newly planted crops are likely to develop quite quickly. Keith Diedrick, area agronomist with Pioneer, says this may produce some strange looking plants, “The plants are driven by heat and, when they get a little warm, they will really take off. Sometimes you will see plants bend and look really odd. This is just because they are growing quickly; so don’t panic, they will grow out of it and you will be fine.” Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleGroups Call for Quick Senate Action on Farm BillNext articleIndiana Crop Update May 7, 2012 Gary Truittlast_img read more

Huge portrait of jailed Algerian journalist hung beside Paris ring road

first_img Receive email alerts Today’s installation took place exactly one month after an Algiers appeal court sentenced Drareni to two years in jail for covering the “Hirak” anti-government protests in Algeria. He has been imprisoned since the end of March. October 15, 2020 – Updated on October 19, 2020 Huge portrait of jailed Algerian journalist hung beside Paris ring road News News Organisation Who is Khaled Drareni, symbol of press freedom in Algeria?READ MOREDesigned by Parisian street artist C215 and printed on a 320-square-meter tarpaulin (measuring 18 metres by 18 metres), the portrait was hung on the facade of a nine-storey building in Paris’s 13th arrondissement that overlooks the Périphérique, which is said to be Europe’s busiest urban motorway. “The size of this portrait matches the size of our determination to obtain Khaled’s release – immense,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We are happy and proud to see that the movement in support of this journalist is growing by the day and we thank the well-known artists and officials who have joined us today. Khaled Drareni’s continuing detention is absurd and unjust. He just did his job as a journalist and his release is a matter of the utmost urgency.” News Represented by his first deputy, Eric Offredo, 13th arrondissement mayor Jérôme Coumet said: “I am proud to have this gigantic portrait of Khaled Drareni by C215 in Paris’s 13th. We are committed to the defence of freedoms, including press freedom.

Pfluger takes oath of office todayNew congressman has legislation ready to be introduced

first_img WhatsApp Whether he was leading his beloved Central High School football team to victory as its quarterback or serving as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force, August Pfluger has always demonstrated a strong desire to accomplish goals. Pfluger, who will be sworn into the House of Representatives for Texas 11th District today, says he plans to bring that same lifelong tenacity to his new role as a congressman. Pfluger and other new house members are scheduled to take their oath of office during a noon to 4 p.m. ceremony today. “I’m thrilled to have this opportunity,” Pfluger said. “It’s about serving the community; the district and the future of our country.” His first priority will be to represent his constituents in West Texas, including Odessa and Midland. Within his first few days in office Pfluger plans to introduce legislation to protect the oil industry, an integral part of the Permian Basin’s economic health. “The Permian Basin supplies 40 percent of this country’s oil,” Pfluger said. “Within my first few days I will introduce legislation to stop the radical left from destroying the industry.” Pfluger said the oil industry provides about 2 million jobs for Texans, the majority of those jobs in the Permian Basin. “We’re talking about 2 million Texans whose livelihoods depend on it. The legislation I will be introducing will protect those jobs.” For years “far-left liberal Democrats like (Vice President-elect) Kamala Harris, (President-elect Joe) Biden and (New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) OAC” have engaged in rhetoric in attempt to ban fracking, Pfluger said. “Their rhetoric has no scientific facts to back it up,” he added. “We’ve been doing this for decades. It allows us to provide affordable energy to our country and the world.” Born and raised in San Angelo, Pfluger earned a bachelor of science degree in political science from the United States Air Force Academy. He’s also received a master of science degree in aeronautical science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, a master of science in military and operations science from Air University and a master of science in international business and policy from Georgetown University. Pfluger earned his commission to the U.S. Air Force in 2000, and served in active duty for duty for 20 years, flying F-22 fighter jets. He eventually reached the rank of lieutenant colonel. Pfluger, 42, replaces long time Congressman Mike Conaway, who opted not to seek re-election, after serving in the position for eight terms. In August 2019, Pfluger was appointed to President Trump’s National Security Council staff. In his role, Pfluger received the nation’s highest security clearance and charged with advising The President on a host of foreign and domestic threats to the nation’s security. Pfluger resigned from the NSC after three months to run for Conaway’s seat, defeating 9 other Republican challengers. He defeated Democrat Jon Mark Hogg in the November general election. Pfluger takes office at a perilous time in the U.S., where COVID-19 and the federal government’s response has prompted deep divisions between voters who say Trump and his administration has failed to adequately address the year-long pandemic. Avid supporters of Trump strongly disagree and have commended the president’s efforts. President-elect Biden’s presumed victory over Trump to become the next president has created an even bitterer divide, with Trump supporters claiming voter fraud, and Biden supporters calling the claims “baseless” and “sour grapes.” Pfluger announced on Friday that he plans to support an election challenge to the legitimacy of Biden’s presumed general election victory over Trump. The U.S. House of Representatives will reconvene on January 6 to vote whether to officially ratify election results. Pfluger said he will oppose ratification because he believes a thorough investigation of possible election fraud is needed before Biden is officially declared president. “It’s an honor (to be elected to Congress), but the weight of it is not lost on me,” Pfluger said. “It’s an important time in this country. “When I made the decision to run for office, we didn’t know what we would be facing – a pandemic and an election controversy. We took a step of faith that this was the path that God had laid out for us.” Facebook Facebook Local NewsGovernment Twitter Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 3, 2021 center_img TAGS  Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp Previous articleGUEST VIEW: Science can save us – againNext articleOC aims for Vision 2030 Digital AIM Web Support Pfluger takes oath of office todayNew congressman has legislation ready to be introducedlast_img read more
