Warren Buffett has a very simple investment strategy. He simply buys good companies and then holds them for a long time.One thing that stands out about Buffett’s strategy, though, is that he tends to favour some sectors. Two sectors he likes, in particular, are Financials and Consumer Goods.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…With that in mind, here’s a look at two Warren Buffett-style FTSE 100 companies that operate in these sectors.World’s greatest investor loves insurance firmsOne area of the Financials sector that Buffett clearly likes is insurance. His company, Berkshire Hathaway, fully owns a number of major US insurers including GEICO and General Reinsurance Corporation. It also has stakes in others.Now, the FTSE 100 index contains a number of insurance companies. But the one that has the most Warren Buffett attributes, to my mind, is Prudential (LSE: PRU).For a start, Prudential has a competitive advantage in the form of its brand and logo. As a result of its brand, Prudential enjoys an impressive awareness in Asia (where it’s predominantly focused now) that often surpasses local competitors and other foreign players. It is recognised as one of the most trusted brands in Asia.Secondly, Prudential is a very profitable company. Last year, the company generated an operating return on shareholders’ funds of 24%. Buffett would be impressed with that, I think.Finally, Prudential has a great track record when it comes to generating shareholder wealth. The FTSE 100 company has put together an impressive dividend track record. Furthermore, over the last decade, it has lifted its dividend significantly. This year, it has continued to pay dividends while other FTSE 100 companies have suspended or cancelled their payouts.Prudential shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of just nine. I think Warren Buffett would be attracted to that kind of valuation. We all know Buffett loves a bargain.Buffett tried to buy this FTSE 100 stockAnother FTSE 100 stock that ticks a lot of Warren Buffett boxes is Unilever (LSE: ULVR). It’s a consumer goods company that owns a world-class portfolio of brands. Its products are sold in hundreds of countries around the world and used by billions of people every day.Like Prudential, Unilever has a competitive advantage in the form of its brands. Its well-known brands, which include Dove, Lipton, and Domestos, are trusted by many. They tend to be purchased by consumers irrespective of economic conditions.Unilever is also a very profitable company. Return on capital employed (ROCE) has averaged 24% over the last five years. Meanwhile, the company has a fantastic long-term record when it comes to generating shareholder wealth. Since 1952, Unilever has compounded its dividends by around 8% per year.Unilever shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 20. That’s not high for a company with such a fantastic track record.Warren Buffett actually tried to buy Unilever a few years back near the 4,000p mark. Given the company’s high-quality attributes, I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries to buy the FTSE 100 company again at some stage in the future.

Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Por Elizabeth PaulsenPosted Mar 2, 2012 Rector Knoxville, TN [Episcopal News Service] La pérdida de su trabajo en los archivos médicos hace más de dos años le costó a Carol Hopkins su casa y la obligó a mudarse. Y aunque Hopkins, de 60 años, aún hace de la búsqueda de un nuevo trabajo una tarea diaria, teme que su edad esté limitando su capacidad de volver a encontrar empleo.“Intento mantenerme esperanzada y ser positiva”, dice.Hopkins es una de las docenas de personas sin hogar en Northampton, Massachusetts, y sus comunidades circunvecinas, que han encontrado solaz y una comida caliente en un ministerio ecuménico al aire libre que se llama “Catedral en la Noche”.El ministerio, que se inició en enero de 2011, es una colaboración de tres ministros: Chris Carlisle, un capellán episcopal en Smith College y la Universidad de Massachusetts; Stephanie Smith, pastora de la iglesia luterana de Nuestro Salvador [Our Savior’s] en South Hadley; y Eric Fistler, pastor de la iglesia congregacional de West Suffield, Connecticut, y ex ministro de educación para la iglesia Edwards [de la Iglesia Unida de Cristo] en Northampton.Los tres querían crear un ministerio de la calle en Northampton que le mostrara solidaridad a la población desamparada de la zona y atrajera a estudiantes universitarios.Northampton, una ciudad de aproximadamente 28.550 habitantes, es la sede de cinco universidades. El pueblo y el Valle del Pionero [Pioneer Valley] que lo circunda son también los lugares donde viven unas 670 personas sin hogar, según estadísticas compiladas por los condados de Hampden, Franklin y Hampshire en 2006, antes de que se acentuara la recesión.“Hay un cierto magnetismo entre las personas sin hogar y los estudiantes: una confluencia natural en la demografía”, dice Carlisle, que pasó 30 años trabajando con estudiantes de edad universitaria.Carlisle obtuvo una subvención de $60.000 de la Oficina de Jóvenes Adultos y Ministerio Universitario de la Iglesia Episcopal en junio de 2010 para crear el singular ministerio de la calle, que está concebido para reflejar las primitivas tradiciones cristianas.“Queremos crear una comunidad al aire libre que sea inclusiva. Esto no una extensión de la iglesia, es la iglesia. Jesús siempre estaba fuera de la sinagoga con la gente, y nosotros queremos seguir eso”, dijo Carlisle, que actualmente está en un [año] sabático en el sur de Francia.El culto se celebra cada domingo frente al templo de Primeras Iglesias , que le permite al grupo el uso del espacio. El templo está situado en la calle principal [Main Street] de Northampton, rodeada de boutiques y de las Galerías R. Michelson.En la noche de un domingo frío y ventoso de mediados de febrero se reunieron por lo menos 50 personas, entre ellas el Rdo. Tim Oslovich, a quien acompañaban una docena de sus feligreses de la iglesia luterana de la Trinidad en Vernon, Connecticut. Varias iglesias de Massachusetts y Connecticut han donado su tiempo y sus talentos a este ministerio.El espacio lo equiparon con cuatro calefactores de propano y seis lámparas portátiles adornadas con grullas de papel. Las lámparas fueron creadas y donadas por una clase de arquitectura de la Universidad de Massachusetts.Los participantes tenían a su disposición abrigos, sombreros, mitones y calentadores de manos, mientras la temperatura rondaba los 3 grados bajo cero.Al servicio religioso de 30 minutos siguió una comida. Todos los alimentos fueron donados por empresarios y lugares de culto de la localidad.“Intentamos no hacerlo sentir demasiado como un comedor de beneficencia. Todo el mundo se sirve y todos comemos juntos afuera”, dijo Smith.Y para muchas de las personas sin hogar que participan, la Catedral en la Noche es un respiro de acogida y una oportunidad de aprender más acerca de otros en situaciones semejantes.“Yo no me siento sola aquí. Siento también una obligación de ayudar, independientemente de mi situación”, dijo Hopkins.Parte de la subvención de la Iglesia Episcopal se ha dirigido a un programa de práctica para estudiantes universitarios que están interesados en explorar formas alternativas de culto.Ali Brauner, de 19 años, que estudia religión en Smith, está trabajando para crear pequeños grupos en su campus para debatir [temas de] justicia social y religión.“Existe una obvia disparidad en las clases sociales aquí”, apuntó ella.Además de atraer más estudiantes para ayudar a participar con la Catedral en la Noche, Carlisle dijo que él espera crear más ministerios de la calle en Greenfield y Holyoke.Pero la subvención de la Iglesia Episcopal se acaba este año, y la continuación del ministerio dependerá de donaciones.La Catedral en la Noche se concentra en la justicia social y su ministerio fue un foco de atracción para Shannon Farrand-Bernardin, de 33 años, que es miembro de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan y quien tuvo noticias de la Catedral en la Noche a partir de sus anuncios y de su página en Facebook.“Muchos individuos sin hogar, aquellos que luchan con las adicciones o con ciertas enfermedades mentales, al igual que muchos estudiantes universitarios, a veces dudan de tomar parte en la vida parroquial. No encuentran un sitio que les acomode en las comunidades eclesiales, o bien se sienten fuera de lugar”, dijo Farrand-Bernardin, que se graduó recientemente en el seminario y es asesor religioso de la comunidad de Smith College. “La catedral crea un puente muy importante para esa gente”.— Elizabeth Paulsen es una escritora independiente radicada en Brooklyn y miembro de la iglesia de Cristo en Bay Ridge.

The 20m x 30m plot of land in the coastal Mar Azul forest in Buenos Aires, Argentina is the site for BAK Architects’ JD House, a residence designed in concrete, wood and glass and blended into the topography and vegetation on the site. The preliminary specifications for the house required two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large, flexible social area, integrated into the kitchen, that could accommodate different activities for the guests that are expected to visit. The client also specified that generous outdoor expansions were available on the site.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaRecommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlinePorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BuildWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedStonesNeolithSintered Stone – Arctic White – Colorfeel CollectionThe land on which the house is situated follows a gentle slope that provided a welcome challenge for the design of the house. In relationship to the street level, the house sits very high above the ground in order to adjust to the level changes on the site. This provides a a heightened condition of privacy, as passersby are less able to see into the house from the street, and a vantage point from which the inhabitants can view out onto the landscape over neighboring houses.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe house was conceived as two pure prisms, located in a clearing among trees of various heights, as intersecting perpendicular forms that joined at half levels. The slope was once again used to the advantage of the proposal to hide parts of the program, thereby reducing the presence of the building on the site. The form that developed from the conjoining of the volumes resulted in programs that were substantially independent from one another, but united through large openings in the social gathering spaces as well as through outdoor terraces and wooden decks that extended the living space out into the forest.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe house is accessed along the longest side through a deck that is raised above the natural terrain. By stepping the deck into complete volume of the house and creating a corner as the entrance, BAK Architects simulated an interior condition in the exterior of the residence, where already the material and spatial organization is felt. The height difference perceived in the entry intentionally signify the different uses of the spaces caused by the intersections of the prisms.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe architects play with the volumes, alternating between high and low ceilings and depressed floors to provide a dynamic space of a variety of functions. The level of transparency through the house is equally as important as the opacity of the gray concrete walls. The views through the house direct its users’ eyes onto the landscape beyond the house, whereas the concrete walls direct light and provide organized views within the house. While the house is visually open, the architects took great care to create private areas, such as bedrooms and bathrooms, that are nestled and buried under the general “ground level” of the house. The architects were careful to leave as many salvageable trees on the site as possible allowing them to pierce through several of the outdoor decks that are an extension of the house.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe three basic materials of the house are exposed concrete, glass and wood, as well as the natural decorative elements of the surrounding forest. H21 concrete was used with the addition of a plasticizer to the mix with little amounts of water used to harden, resulting in a very compact material that does not require sealing. The few hollow brick interior walls are finished in smoothing cement. The heating system, since there is no natural gas in the area, was resolved with a system that combines salamander, bottled gas stoves and electric heaters.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaProject gallerySee allShow lessGreenwashing Manual / Valentina KargaArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share CopyAbout this officeBAK arquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVilla GesellHousesArgentinaPublished on January 18, 2011Cite: “JD House / BAK Arquitectos” 18 Jan 2011.

It is in the very special geography of the Swiss Jura, near the Lac de Joux (which freezes over in Winter), close to the ski slopes, hiking trails and bike routes where the R. family wished to settle. It is in this very special universe that the architects designed a singular space in response to the location and needs of the family by establishing strong relationships between inner spaces and territory.Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelThe ground floor adapts to the natural terrain’s gentle slope with four steps that follow the exceptional stone formation surrounding the hut. This delicate adjustment to the topography allows collective spaces such as the living room, the kitchen or the workshop to open to the outside. The hut doesn’t favor one direction but rather a 360-degree relationship with the lake, the surrounding mountains, and the pastures.Save this picture!© Eik FrenzelAbove this mineral soil, as if suspended in the air, are four bedrooms and a bathroom. Between these closed private cells are other shared spaces such as an office, TV space, comics library and a large play area for children. Collective spaces take advantage of three-dimensional space and give the house its richness and light.Save this picture!Structure AxonSave this picture!DetailBuilt entirely out of wood, the hut uses an original and innovative construction system where the framing and walls fit together and slide into each other.

STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * JPL credit NASA/JPL-CaltechNASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena has awarded New Mexico-based Fiore Industries Inc. a 10-year contract to provide campuswide security and fire protection services.The New Mexico Economic Development Department said the contract comes after Fiore gained experience with smaller contractual work at NASA’s White Sands Missile Range in the state, as well as in Spaceport America, according to a report by Albuquerque TV station KRQE. Spaceport Ameria is an FAA-licensed spaceport located on 18,000 acres of state trust land in the Jornada del Muerto desert basin in New Mexico, directly west of and adjacent to White Sands Missile Range.A company statement said Fiore Industries Inc. will be expanding its number of employees from 140 to 200 following the JPL contract transition on Oct. 1.Another report by the Albuquerque Journal said the contract is worth about $130 million. It’s now Fiore Industries Inc.’s largest contract since launching in 1989, the report said.The New Mexico EDD said many of Fiore’s operations and support positions will remain in Albuquerque, with about 30 employees located at Spaceport America as part of the company’s requirements for security and protection services.Bill Miera, founder and CEO of Fiore Industries, told KRQE the JPL contract will mean more high-paying jobs coming to New Mexico. Under the contract, the company plans to hire about 60 more people, including dispatchers, guards, and firefighters.Most of the new people will be based in Pasadena. New Mexico-based employees will provide support services.Fiore Industries. Inc. was founded in 1989 as a global aerospace and defense provider. It also provides turnkey mission support ranging from engineering and technology solutions to base operations, security and protective services, and support services.New Mexico EDD Secretary Alicia J. Keyes said Fiore’s achievement reflects the state’s aerospace industry’s growing national reputation. She added the company’s track record at Spaceport America was key to its competitive position with JPL.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A ninth child has died in a New Jersey rehabilitation facility that is currently suffering an adenovirus outbreak, according to officials.The child, whose name has not been released, died late Saturday night at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell, New Jersey. This latest death was a confirmed case of adenovirus, according to the New Jersey Department of Health.Twenty-five pediatric cases of adenovirus have been connected to the outbreak at this facility, officials said. A staff member at the facility also became ill, but has since recovered.“This is a tragic situation, and our thoughts are with the families who are grieving right now,” New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal said in a press release. “We are working every day to ensure all infection control protocols are continuously followed and closely monitoring the situation at the facility.”People associated with the outbreak became sick between Sept. 26 and Oct. 22, according to the New Jersey Department of Health.

iStock(SUNNYVALE, Calif.) — A driver in California sped through an intersection and plowed into a group of pedestrians on Tuesday night, injuring at least eight people, including a 13-year-old.The crash took place at about 6:30 p.m. in Sunnyvale, a suburb of San Jose, and about 45 minutes south of San Francisco.A Sunnyvale police spokesperson said, according to witness statements, the driver did not appear to slow down, and hit pedestrians in the crosswalk and on the sidewalk.“We do have witness statements that show that vehicle did not attempt to slow down or brake, and the scene itself doesn’t show any evidence of breaking,” Jim Choi, of the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, said.The driver was taken into custody at the scene.Video from the scene showed a black sedan with heavy front-end damage sitting off the side of the road against a tree.“It looks like it may have been an intentional act. All of that is under investigation at this time,” Choi said, adding, “We know that this is an isolated event in that no one is outstanding, no danger to the community.”Multiple ambulances were called to the scene to assist with the injured patients, but the exact nature of the injuries was still unclear.“We do know that several of the patients that we had treated on scene had serious injuries — we just don’t know the extent,” Choi said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Post-auction sales have since taken the final total to £67.4m with a 75 per cent success rate.300 properties were lotted, one of the largest catalogues of the year. However, buy to let investors who have been hit with tapering tax relief and the stamp duty surcharge against a backdrop of political uncertainty responded by exercising caution on the day.However, sensitively priced and high quality lots were particularly sought-after. These included a number of investments in London and the South East. Lot 76, an unbroken block of flats in the affluent commuter town of Royal Tunbridge Wells (pictured) achieved £3.08m – the largest lot sold under the hammer on the day.Gary Murphy, Partner and Auctioneer at Allsop said, “We are acutely aware of increasing caution in the market across many sectors. Both investors and developers are concerned about the country’s political future and speculation has given way to inaction.“Despite this, there’s a clear willingness to get on with business – but at the right price. Getting the reserves right has never been more important.”residential auction Allsop’s resi auction sale auction July 18, 2018The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

February 4, 2013 View post tag: IT The U.S. Fleet Cyber Command (FCC) Information Technology Spend Governance Team was announced as a winner of the 2013 Department of the Navy (DON) Information Management/Information Technology (IM/IT) Excellence Award Jan. 31.The annual DON IM/IT Excellence Awards recognize IM/IT teams, projects, and individuals that have helped to transform the Navy and Marine Corps through information technology.The award recognizes the FCC team’s dedicated work in creating new processes and ongoing analysis that facilitated the approval of over 800 IT investment requirements for Navy funded, Navy and Marine Corps Intranet/Continuity of Service Contract (NMCI/CoSC), and nationally funded IT procurement requests. “Our 19 member team can be proud of their accomplishments over the past year that benefit not only the command, but the Navy as a whole by creating efficiencies that maximize resources – an ever more critical necessity in this challenging fiscal climate,” said Kevin Cooley, FCC’s chief information officer and executive director.The DON CIO award citation reads:The efforts of the US Fleet Cyber Command IT Spend Governance Team measurably improved mission effectiveness and positively affected information sharing and information management. Through innovative use of IM/IT, the team met Navy requirements without duplicating existing programming and financial management controls at FCC headquarters and globally dispersed subordinate commands. The team’s forceful advocacy increased user capability, reduced decision cycle timelines Navy-wide and improved FCC mission effectiveness. In just 10 months, the team created processes from scratch and conducted intensive analysis directly affecting the approval of over 800 IT investment requirements for Navy funded, NMCI/CoSC and nationally funded IT procurement requests. The value of these investments exceeded $100M and encompassed telecommunication services, Programs of Record support, contract support services, software and hardware. The team’s diligence and innovation resulted in significant achievements in advancing the DON, OPNAV, and FCC vision for managing this knowledge and information, thus enabling effectiveness at the Echelon II and Echelon I levels. Collaboration, communication, and execution of IT expenditures throughout the FCC HQ and domain now follow documented, repeatable processes that have resulted in better decision-making and increased mission effectiveness, visibility, and oversight for all FCC IT Investments across all classification enclaves. “We’re proud of the team’s hard work that has enabled FCC leadership to make decisions during the past year to avoid duplicate projects, ensure consistency throughout the domain, and identify new avenues to pursue IT efficiencies,” said team leader and member Neal Miller, FCC Deputy Chief Information Officer for Mission Assurance.Importantly, these efficiencies aid FCC in fulfilling its goal of providing Navy and Joint commanders with an operational advantage by assuring access to cyberspace and confident command and control, preventing strategic surprise in cyberspace, and delivering decisive cyber effects.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 4, 2013; Image: US Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today US Fleet Cyber Command Wins Excellence Award for IT Accomplishments US Fleet Cyber Command Wins Excellence Award for IT Accomplishments View post tag: Accomplishments View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Excellence View post tag: Command View post tag: Navy View post tag: Cyber View post tag: US View post tag: award View post tag: wins Training & Education Share this article View post tag: fleet View post tag: Naval
