Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Bitcoin’s volatile ride is too scary for me. But a combination of a generous dividend yield and the potential for share price growth is a great combination for any investor, I think. Of all the companies in the FTSE 100, I believe that insurer and investment manager Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) might have the best potential to both grow and provide investors with income.On the upOne of the things that makes Legal & General such a good investment for me is the dividend. The yield currently stands at 5.3% — despite a sharp rise in the shares recently. That’s still well above the average for the FTSE 100, which is nearer to 4.3%. The growth in the dividend has been consistent in recent years, rising from 11.25p in 2014 to 16.42p in 2018.5G 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…Despite that growth, dividend cover hasn’t been squeezed. Earnings are comfortably covering the dividend payout, meaning there’s little chance that this generous dividend is likely to be cut any time soon. This cover is 1.8x which is far above a rate that might suggst a cut is on the cards, as has happened with other generous dividend payers like Vodafone.The shares are on a P/E of only 10 – meaning they’re not that expensive, another positive for any investor looking to buy the rising share price.The business has also been performing well financially. Back in August 2018, it reported operating profits of £1.2bn during the first half, up 12% year-on-year. Growth was driven by annuities in particular. A focus on retirement and low-cost passive investment products has underpinned the growth at the group. I expect both trends to continue and see Legal & general doing very well for shareholders in the coming years.A winner that could keep on winningPharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) has a decent track record of growing its share price and delivering value for shareholders. Over the last five years, the shares have risen by 69%. Over the same timeframe, shares in one of its nearest competitors GlaxoSmithKline have gone up by just under 10%. That’s a quite phenomenal difference in performance.AstraZeneca is a winner that I expect to keep on winning. The simple reason why is that it is very focused on the key area of oncology – far more so than GSK, which is now playing catch-up. The drugs pipeline is brimming with opportunities to develop new blockbuster drugs, following years of patent expiries, which have hit growth. The pharma giant currently has a whopping 164 projects in its pipeline, many focused on treatments for cancer.This quality hasn’t gone unnoticed by investors. The shares now trade on a P/E of 29 and the share price rise has pushed the yield to under 3%. But sometimes you have to pay for quality. And with AstraZeneca, that is what you get. I expect the share price to keep pushing up.Both of these companies have attractive business models and will benefit from ageing populations. I think the wider trends in society create a lot of opportunities for both Legal & General and AstraZeneca. They have a lot of potential to make investors far better off than investing in Bitcoin! 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Andy Rosslast_img read more

The darker color on the bottom gives the feeling that the upper volume rests on the bottom, making the scenario lighter.Another key point for the project was the implantation of the house, taking advantage of the best insolation and natural ventilation for each space.Save this picture!Save this picture!SketchNatural lighting and ventilation are provided through large openings, so that artificial light isn´t required throughout the day, and also to minimize the use of air conditioning in Summer. Glazed openings also contribute to the composition of their facades.The project was modulated in a way that the house could be built using the system of ceramic blocks, to provide a more economical and fast work. We respect in the design the maximum and minimum spans that this type of construction system demands, to get the best use of the blocks. In the leisure space, a piloti supports the upper terrace, giving the lightness and the differential that the structure needed.Save this picture!SectorizationIn the ground floor, living room and kitchen become a unique space, providing amplitude and a greater dynamism to the space. The leisure space is also integrated into the kitchen, separated only by sliding glass panels. This space can be fully opened to the garden, creating an extension of the house to the outside, releasing the view to the outside. We think that modern life calls for these more integrated and open social spaces, so that there can be a greater interaction of the residents with the house, taking better advantage of the spaces.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!PlanThe service areas (restroom, laundry, storage and gas house) are arranged on the left side of the house, in the West Sunshine.

Metrick Cottage and Boathouse / Akb Architects

Set amid an enclave of seasonal, waterfront homes, Metrick Cottage is a one storey, semi-charred, wood-clad, residence and boathouse situated in Lake Joseph, Ontario. This multi-generational family retreat draws inspiration from the rugged beauty that surrounds it to create a warm, elegant, and eco-friendly home.Save this picture!© Shai GilThe main residence consists of three distinct ‘pods’ comprised of four bedrooms, four baths and an open living area in between. The boathouse is a complimentary, three-slip storage, set at water level. Uniquely sited, this 5,400 square foot property offers an unobstructed, panoramic view to the lake and shoreline beyond.Save this picture!© Shai GilSave this picture!© Shai GilThe design challenge was to create a home that expresses the use of all-natural, wood materials, keeping in mind that most construction products had to be brought over by boat to circumvent the dramatic inland topography. The materials also had to be durable and able to withstand the harsh seasonal climates without relying heavily on paints or stains. As a result, Douglas Fir timbers, cedar and torrified ash were selected as the main material components for their lightweight nature and modularity.Save this picture!© Shai GilOnce the wood was selected, the inherent properties of Douglas Fir wood siding, together with the technique of surface charring the wood known as shou sugi ban, informed the overall design. The charring creates a wear layer for increased durability and reduces its susceptibility to fire, pests, and rot over the life of the siding. It also creates a desirable aesthetic effect making the cottage appear as if it has been nestled in the forest for a long time.Save this picture!© Shai GilThe visible structural components such as the exposed roof rafters and the scissor joist, were carefully crafted, prefabricated, Douglas Fir. In order to accentuate the wood structure and create a seamless method of construction, a unique, custom anchoring and fastening system, developed with the structural engineer, was used and strategically lit to further emphasize its beauty. The hidden structural components used throughout were prefabricated wood TJI joists, wood wall structure framing and LVL beams which allowed for ease of transportability and reduced site waste.Save this picture!© Shai GilVarious textures of wood were used ranging from horizontal and vertical fir boards to dramatic, customized scissor-truss design with concealed fittings. Using the more rustic, rough-sawn fir cladding on the exterior allowed a complimentary finish to the rugged northern Ontario backdrop of boreal forest. In contrast, the interior of the cottage was finished with finely milled, torrified ash for the floor, wall, and ceiling boards offering a warm, intimate, and engaging family gathering and recreational space that provides a rich background to their daily activities.  Save this picture!© Shai GilSave this picture!© Shai GilWarm and inviting, the Metrick Cottage and Boathouse is crafted to blend elegantly with their rugged surroundings to create a lasting Home.Save this picture!© Shai GilProject gallerySee allShow lessSMM Penthouse / Anna Solaz – Estudi d’Arquitectura + CRUX arquitectosSelected ProjectsColonia Héctor Caballero Library / Proyecto Reacciona A.CSelected Projects Share 2017 Robert Kastelic, Kelly Buffey Year:  CopyAbout this officeAkb ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsInfrastructureTransportationBoathouseResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookCanadaPublished on March 24, 2021Cite: “Metrick Cottage and Boathouse / Akb Architects” 24 Mar 2021.

‘What do we want? Transjustice!’

first_imgThe 10th annual Trans Day of Action brought together hundreds of mainly transgender youth and young workers of color, along with their allies, on June 27 in New York City.The militant march and two rallies were organized by TransJustice, a program of the Audre Lorde Project, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, trans and gender non-conforming people of color center for community organizing.This important demonstration helps to commemorate the heroic Stonewall Rebellion that took place in June 1969, when transgender youth of color battled police repression for four days. The rebellion gave birth to the modern-day lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer movement.Participants at the rallies, which took place on the Christopher Street Pier, heard speakers share their experiences as survivors of immigrant bashing, police brutality, gentrification, transphobia, lack of health care and more from an anti-racist, working-class perspective.When the march took to the streets, chants of “What do we want? Transjustice. When do we want it? Now!” rang through the streets of the West Village as onlookers clapped and waved.To read the organizers’ 10-point program, go to alp.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

They were primarily believed to have become infected around Thanksgiving and Christmas.Pasadena saw 96 new infections on Friday, she said.Since the onset of the pandemic, Pasadena Public Health Department officials has recorded a total of 9,655 COVID-19 cases and 212 fatalities.The city’s average daily infections over the prior week remained at 88 for a second day.Huntington Hospital reported treating 185 COVID-19 patients on Friday, with 36 of them being treated in intensive care units.Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials were cautiously optimistic on Friday, noting in a statement that “key indicators” were “trending in the right direction.”The agency reported 9,227 new infections and 256 deaths, raising the county’s overall totals to 1,054,802 COVID-19 cases and 14,894 fatalities.“New cases are considerably lower this week, with a decrease of 30% in the seven-day average of daily cases from last week,” according to the county statement. “The test positivity rate has also dropped to 12.7%.
