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. The stock market crash has left many UK shares offering attractive passive income prospects. Lower share prices and maintained dividend payouts mean that yields across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are exceptionally high in some cases.Of course, a weak economic outlook means that ensuring a company’s dividend is affordable may be a worthwhile move prior to purchase. Similarly, assessing its dividend growth prospects could lead to an improving income outlook, as well as capital returns as the stock market experiences a likely recovery.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…Assessing the affordability of dividends among UK sharesThe stock market crash has highlighted the volatility that can be present among UK shares. A weak economic outlook may also put pressure on dividend payouts for those companies that are struggling to generate sales and profit growth. As such, assessing the affordability of a generous dividend yield could be crucial in obtaining a resilient passive income.A simple means of doing so is to compare net profit with dividends paid. This highlights the headroom a company has when making shareholder payouts. If it’s relatively large, the company in question may be able to sustain dividends through a temporary period of financial difficulty. However, a business with little or no headroom when making shareholder payouts may be more likely to cut them in response to the uncertain economic outlook.Contemplating dividend growth after the stock market crashClearly, the stock market crash means it may be more difficult to assess which UK shares can offer dividend growth. However, analysing a company’s track record of dividend growth in a variety of market conditions could act as a guide to how it will perform in the coming years. Similarly, a company that pays out a small portion of profit to shareholders may be able to raise dividends even if its profitability fails to dramatically improve.Investing money in UK shares with dividend growth potential may also lead to impressive capital returns. They may not only benefit from a likely stock market recovery after the market crash, but could also become more popular from a passive income perspective. Other assets, such as cash and bonds, offer relatively low returns that may fail to rise over the long run due to a persistently loose monetary policy. This may increase demand for FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 dividend shares that pushes their prices higher.Reducing risks when making a passive incomeInvesting money in UK shares could realistically produce a 5%+ passive income at the present time. However, it’s important to diversify across a wide range of British shares to reduce risk. Doing so could provide a more resilient income return over the coming years. Picking shares that deliver growth and capital return prospects will benefit as the stock market recovers from the 2020 crash. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images.

The orthogonal and abstract form contrasts with the irregular shape of the plot, which becomes a plateau. This encourages the observation and reiterates that in this island it is important to gaze out to sea. The section through the building sets up a dialog with the base rock, and this is reinforced by a slot in the upper floor that fragments the volume, creating two “bulges” resting on the main box that organises all the spatial functions and relationships in the house.

It sets up “bridges” which extend living areas to the outside. A central body including the kitchen, bathroom services, storage and vertical access to the bedrooms defines the circulation system. The living room is in the void that this body creates. Save this picture!The two “bulges” contain spaces for sleeping and are connected by a glazed volume. They have the character of watchtowers, and their openings frame fragments of what is largely a seascape. The glazed circulation space of the upper floor and the link from the kitchen to the exterior are of materials that contrast with the roughness of the rest of the house.

The chromatic uniformity is continued on the roof where volcanic ash is used. Save this picture!Inside the aim was always austerity, using very few materials.

Located in one of the 40-year-old urban gardens, this project was defined by the client as a villa with no distinct external appearance and facing, minimum resolution, unspecific form, and attracting the least attention possible. Conversely, the user opts for diverse interior spaces, which maximize the enjoyment of presence in the villa.

Lloyds TSB Foundation Northern Ireland has changed its criteria to exclude organisations with an income over £1 million.The Foundation said it was taking this action because the increasing number of applications were making the decision making process more difficult. In addition, the Foundation said they were keen to ensure they stay in line with their overall aim, ‘to support under funded charities’. It stated that this new eligibility criteria will stay in place for the foreseeable future and there will be no change in other guidelines. Lloyds TSB’s average grant is between £3,000 and £4,000.This is not the first time in recent years the Foundation has changed its criteria. Two years ago it announced that it was reducing its top grant level to £5,000 and only considering support for charities with a turnover of under £250,000.

El gobierno de EE.UU. está acusando de que el 13 de junio, Irán atacó a dos barcos petroleros en el Estrecho de Ormuz,– el Frente de Alta Altair de propiedad noruega y el Kokuka Valeroso, de propiedad japonesa.La amenaza de una nueva agresión militar de los Estados Unidos en un área ya devastada por décadas de guerra es muy real. Todos los que se oponen a una posibilidad tan horrible deben hacer todo lo posible para detenerlo.La acusación de los Estados Unidos es absurda. Los gobiernos de otros países imperialistas aliados en el pasado con los Estados Unidos ya están expresando su escepticismo.¿Por qué demonios atacaría Irán a un petrolero japonés en el preciso momento en que el primer ministro de Japón visitaba Irán? Shinzo Abe, quien se encontraba en Teherán para conversar con el gobierno iraní, pidió a todos los países que se abstengan de tomar medidas que podrían aumentar las tensiones. Hizo la apelación justo después de una llamada telefónica con Donald Trump, quien inmediatamente culpó a Irán por los ataques y llamó a Irán “una nación de terror”.Irán, por supuesto, no tiene buques de guerra, aviones o submarinos que aterroricen al mundo entero. Estados Unidos si.La administración de los Estados Unidos afirma que tiene un video de los iraníes retirando una mina de uno de los barcos. Pero Yutaka Katada, presidente de la compañía naviera japonesa, dijo que los informes de un ataque a una mina eran “falsos” porque el daño a la nave estaba por encima de la línea de flotación y los marineros a bordo habían visto “objetos voladores” antes del ataque que podría haber sido una bala.El ministro de Relaciones Exteriores iraní, Mohammad Javad Zarif, calificó las acusaciones como parte de un complot de políticos depredadores en los Estados Unidos y la región.Ni siquiera los medios de comunicación burgueses establecidos están creyendo el cuento de la administración de Trump.La revista New Yorker ya tiene un artículo en línea sobre las muchas excusas falsas que el gobierno de los Estados Unidos ha usado durante décadas para justificar su agresión militar. El artículo comienza: “Estados Unidos tiene una larga historia de provocación, instigación o lanzamiento de guerras basadas en amenazas dudosas, endebles o fabricadas”.Cita la explosión del acorazado Maine en el puerto de La Habana que usó Estados Unidos para generar el apoyo a la guerra de 1898 con España. (Más tarde se demostró que el Maine explotó, no de una mina española, sino de un incendio a bordo). También nombradas como “amenazas” inventadas por los EE.UU. fueron el “ataque” falso del Golfo de Tonkin utilizado para justificar el envío de tropas a Vietnam en 1964; y la “inteligencia” sobre las “armas de destrucción masiva” iraquíes fabricada para facilitar la invasión de Irak en 2003.Las amenazas muy reales de más asesinatos y caos, emitidas ahora mismo por la clase dominante de los Estados Unidos y su máquina de muerte, claman por una oposición militante.¡No guerra contra Irán! ¡Pongamos un alto a esta guerra antes de que comience!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
By Gary Truitt – Aug 5, 2012 Home News Feed Short Crop Could Complicate Farmland Leases, Rent Payments SHARE SHARE Low crop yields from this year’s drought could mean an inability of some farmers to meet farmland rental agreements if they suffer major losses of income. The possibility means tenants and landlords need to communicate with one another, and both parties need to review the terms of lease agreements. “The ability to meet rent payments will vary widely among tenants due to the differing financial impacts of the 2012 drought,” said Chris Hurt, Purdue Extension agricultural economist.Contributing factors include final crop yields, final grain prices, the amount of production that is forward-contracted, level of crop insurance coverage, if any, whether there is livestock involved, and a producer’s financial strength heading into the 2012 drought. But regardless of financial circumstances, Purdue Extension agricultural economist Gerry Harrison said tenants and landlords are legally locked into lease agreements. “The law is clear on the duty to perform under a contract,” he said. “A cropland lease, oral or written, is a contract.”A tenant’s overall financial position will couple with the type of lease agreement to determine whether rent can be paid and what options tenants and landlords have. Common lease agreements include crop sharing, straight cash rent or a variation of the two. “If it is a crop share lease, the landowner is in a similar position to the tenant,” Harrison said. “If the lease is a ‘flex’ lease, what is the flex provision? If the flex is based on crop yield, the lack of yield may remove any liability the tenant has, based on the flex provision.nIf the flex lease is based on price for the crop, the tenant with a short crop may have a serious problem.”Under Indiana law, a landlord can terminate a lease with 10 days’ notice if a tenant doesn’t pay rent when due, unless both parties agree otherwise or if the tenant pays the rent in full within the notice period. “At the very least, some flexibility in non-payment of rent by the due date might be needed this year until a crop insurance payment or a loan becomes available to the tenant,” he said.Harrison has a free publication that provides an in-depth look at the legalities of farmland leases in Indiana. “Legal Aspects of Indiana Farmland Leases and Federal Tax Considerations” is available at https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/EC/EC-713.pdf Facebook Twitter Short Crop Could Complicate Farmland Leases, Rent Payments Facebook Twitter Previous articleConnecting the Dots from Farm to FoodNext articleDrought Monitor, Rain Outlook A Mixed Bag For The Eastern Corn Belt Gary Truitt
