The prospect of a severe economic downturn doesn’t mean that you and I should stop buying quality companies today. As stock investors it’s still possible to make decent returns by buying some defensive UK shares in something like a Stocks and Shares ISA.There’s plenty of UK shares out there that will still generate profits during the current recession. Some of them are will actually thrive while the rest of the economy struggles. And while their prices may have remained resilient despite the stock market crash many of them still appear to be trading far too cheaply at recent prices.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…3 cheap UK shares with chunky dividendsStock pickers can’t afford to stop investing despite the poor economic outlook. The paltry State Pension means that we all need to continue taking steps to safeguard our financial futures today. So let me talk you through some of the top UK shares that I’m thinking of buying today for their excellent defensive qualities.Begbies Traynor Group is likely to see demand for its services boom in the short term. Why? With furlough schemes ending soon the number of corporate insolvencies looks set to jump. But don’t just consider this business as a great buy for the here and now. Huge spending on acquisitions as well as huge organic investment is boosting its market share and enhancing its long-term profits outlook as well. Today Begbies Traynor trades on a reasonable forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14 times. And it boasts a 3.5% dividend yield as well.A murky outlook for the British economy is likely to continue blasting precious metals prices to the stars. And this makes gold miner Trans-Siberian Gold a top buy today. It’s a UK share that trades on a forward P/E ratio of 7 times and carries a healthy 2.7% dividend yield. It’s worth noting that Brexit concerns have helped drive yellow metal prices to record highs over the past couple of years. So signs that the chances of a no-deal Brexit are rising bode well for gold prices too.I’d also buy power plant operator Drax Group today. It’s a UK share that’s ideal for even the most risk-averse stock investors. The essential role of electricity in today’s society provides it with exceptional profits visibility. And its low earnings multiple of 10 times factors in the chances of forecasts being blown off course for any reason. One final sweetener: at current prices Drax sports a near-6% dividend yield.Buying after the stock market crashDrax et al are great stocks to buy despite the poor economic outlook, then. But they’re just a few of the cheap UK shares that could help you get rich over the next few years.

See all posts by Roland Head Investing in a personal pension can sound scary. It’s tempting to keep savings in cash instead. But the reality is that, with interest rates lower than they’ve ever been, cash savings aren’t likely to rise in value.Apart from an emergency cash fund, I’m putting most of my spare cash into the stock market. Here, I’ll explain how I’d invest £100 a month in a pension, using a simple ‘autopilot’ strategy that could generate a £95k nest egg in 25 years.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…Getting started with pension investingI’d start by opening a low-cost SIPP (Self-Invested Personal Pension). SIPPs allow you to manage the investments inside your pension in a similar way to a regular share-dealing account.However, if I had £100 a month to invest in a pension, I wouldn’t buy individual shares. With typical dealing costs of £5-£10 per trade, the costs would mean each trade started with a 5-10% loss.What I’d do instead would be to invest my monthly pension cash in a cheap index tracker fund.Less than 10 years to retirementIf I had less than 10 years to retirement, I’d probably choose a FTSE 100 tracker fund. The FTSE 100 contains the 100 largest companies traded on the UK stock market. Examples include Tesco, BP, and Vodafone.These companies’ size and maturity means they don’t need to invest so much of their income in growth. This leaves more cash available for dividends, the regular cash payments received by shareholders.In general, a larger part of the returns from the FTSE 100 come from dividends, with less from share price gains. I see this as an advantage over shorter periods. Share prices can go up and down depending on market events. But dividends tend to be more stable. So, if I was retiring in less than 10 years, this is what I’d do.Longer than 10 years? I’d target growthOver longer periods, I’d aim to generate more growth from my pension investing. A long timeframe means I’d be able to ride out any downturns and benefit from the long-term growth the stock market can provide.What I’d do in this situation would be to invest my £100 each month into a FTSE 250 index tracker fund. Companies in the FTSE 250 are usually well-established and profitable, but they’re a little smaller than FTSE 100 firms. This means that they have more room to grow.Over short periods, the FTSE 250 can be more volatile. When the stock market crashed in March this year, the FTSE 250 fell further than the FTSE 100.But, over long periods, history suggests the FTSE 250 will outperform the FTSE 100. Since November 2000, the FTSE 250 has risen by 226%. The FTSE 100 has only gained 17% during the same period.Pension investing on autopilotThat’s how I’d build a pension with £100 per month. I’d set up the payment as an automated monthly investment and then forget about it for a few years.This kind of investing works best if it’s left alone for many years. It’s not possible to predict the exact value of a fund in the future. But, based on historic rates of return, I’d expect my £100 per month to be worth around £95,000 after 25 years — perhaps more.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON, ENGLAND – JANUARY 24: James Percival of Harlequins is persued by Taufau Filise of Cardiff Blues during the Heineken Cup round six match between Harlequins and Cardiff Blues at The Stoop on January 24, 2010 in London, England. (Photo by Warren Little/Getty Images) TAGS: HarlequinsWorcester Warriors Percival (centre) moves from Quins to WorcesterWORCESTER WARRIORS have signed James Percival from Harlequins, with the giant lock set to make a playing return to Sixways this summer.Man-mountain Percival started his career in the Academy at Warriors and gained international recognition during his time at the club, as a member of the England Under-21 team that won the 2004 Six Nations Grand Slam.The 27-year-old second-row – who is 6ft 5in tall and weighs 18st 8lb – joined Northampton Saints in 2005 before later joining Harlequins in the summer of 2007. Percival, who previously studied at Worcester Sixth Form College and Worcester University, has made a total of 57 appearances for Quins and will now join up with Warriors from the start of the 2011/12 campaign.“Phil Davies and I have been looking closely at the make-up of our pack of forwards for next season and we firmly believe that James Percival will be a fantastic acquisition for Warriors,” said Head Coach Richard Hill. “James offers huge physicality, will do exactly what we want him to do on the field and adds a real abrasive and hard edge to our pack. He also brings with him the added benefit of having been here before so he knows the club and area very well and will settle in quickly.”
(Getty Images)2016 – Fab 50“To go to Australia that summer and whitewash a series down there for the first time and win my 50th cap, presented by Jason Leonard, helped me move forward (from the 2015 World Cup).“To have the most-capped Englishman ever present it was very fitting and is something that will stay with me for a long time.“I don’t have many mementoes up at home but that silver cap is on the mantel; it’s the one thing that I have downstairs.”(Getty Images)2017 – Rock and roll“Camilla was showing me pictures of before and after we met, and she’s had a massive impact on my dress sense!“That was a fun night. We had an engagement party in London for 150 people with a Great Gatsby theme. It was a great party.“She’s been a rock for me, especially when things haven’t gone as well as I’d like.” As the ex-England captain prepares to swap the Premiership for Major League Rugby, he reflects on his career to date LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS (Getty Images)2018 – Cape cheer“I have mixed memories of this tour. I played the first game at Ellis Park, which is an incredible place to play, but unfortunately I got dropped for the second game. Eddie Jones has always been very honest with me and he said I wasn’t playing as well as I normally was. So that week was about helping the team prepare for the game, being a team man.“Then I was lucky to get called in for the third game in Cape Town; I was really pleased with my performance and the win. It was pretty horrendous weather. We didn’t win the series but it’s the first time we’d won in South Africa for some time (since 2000).“Before that autumn I did my knee and it was slower than I’d hoped to recover, so I also missed the Six Nations. I wasn’t in the mix for the World Cup, which was tough to take, but I did everything I could. I’d snap someone’s hand off to have another shot at playing for England, but things change and time moves on.”(Getty Images)2020 – American dream“I’ve always wanted to live abroad and have that life experience. I was born and raised in South London, I’ve been here my whole life, and rugby is a vehicle to a new culture, new lifestyle, new experience. If I’m not going to live in Wandsworth, California isn’t a bad place to live!“I’ll be enjoying both rugby (with San Diego Legion) and time off the pitch. I probably won’t play as many games there as here, and apparently they train every morning then surf in the afternoon, do recovery on the beach.“I’m scared of sharks and I’ve only been surfing once or twice, but it’s all about trying things at this stage in my life and getting that opportunity to have a life experience. It’s exciting.” Chris Robshaw’s Life In PicturesChris Robshaw won all 66 of his England caps as a starter, never playing in a Test from the bench. His was an international career full of ups and downs, from famous wins over the southern hemisphere ‘big three’ to that infamous exit from the 2015 World Cup.As he prepares to swap Harlequins for San Diego Legion, the Premiership for Major League Rugby, the former England captain reflects on significant events in his career to date…(Getty Images)2008 – Senior moment“I’d done U21s with England but this was my first time being with a men’s squad (Saxons), so to speak. We went to a part of the world I’d never been to before, playing in Toronto, Ottawa and then this final game in Chicago (they beat Scotland A 36-19).“There wasn’t the pressure of a first-team tour, so we got to enjoy it off the pitch too. It was almost an old-school tour; we’d give our all on the pitch but we also made the most of things around us, like going to see the Toronto Blue Jays play baseball. It’s a tour with very fond memories for me.”(Getty Images)2009 – The cap fits“I spoke about this game with Mum the other day; she had to stream it through a dodgy internet company. It feels so long ago that a match wouldn’t be on BT or Sky.“It was all a bit of a whirlwind as the first match (against Argentina) was in Manchester. I didn’t play but it was brilliant to train at Old Trafford with all the history.“Then we flew to Argentina and Martin Johnson told me early in the week that I’d be starting so I could get my head around it. That first cap went so fast, and we lost.“You usually sing on the bus but James Haskell, the joker he is, said I should do it at the function, so I was on stage singing Build Me Up Buttercup. The Argentinians didn’t know what I was doing!”(Inpho)2011 – High drama“We beat Munster at Thomond Park in the (Challenge Cup) semi-final; we played out of our skin. We weren’t great in the final (against Stade Français) but hung in there and then there was an incredible bit of magic – Joe Marler to Danny Care and Gonzalo Camacho went over for a try, then Nick Evans with a tremendous touchline kick to win it (19-18).“Incredible – the first bit of silverware a lot of us had been involved in. A lot of us had come through the academy, played together for a long time. We wanted to win things.”(Getty Images)2012 – Captain Chris“I had to wait two-and-a-half years for a second cap, but these things happen. I’d been in and out of training camps, around the squad and kept plugging away, hoping to get an opportunity.“I remember being in the tunnel before we ran out and just being, ‘This is what I’ve always wanted to do’. Of course I was nervous but there was also a huge amount of excitement (to captain England for the first time, against Scotland). I not only wanted to enjoy it but to put my best foot forward. It was absolutely incredible.“I also met Princess Anne for the first time and had to introduce her to all the players before kick-off, so I was having to think what players’ full names were when we usually use nicknames. Lee Dickson was playing and I was playing with his brother Karl at Quins, so I was focused on getting the right first name!“We went up to Scotland with a very young squad and there were a lot of nerves and emotions. They made us feel welcome, as you can imagine, but we managed to win 13-6. It wasn’t the most exciting game but just to get the win was brilliant as we hadn’t won up there in a while (since 2004).”(Getty Images)2012 – Title deed“In this photo are guys I came through the academy with, so just to share the Premiership win with those boys, with the team I’d supported as a kid…“It’s a different feeling playing at Twickenham in a club shirt than it is for England. When we play there, we park at the Stoop and walk to the stadium. That day there was a guard of honour over the bridge, through the car parks and into the stadium so it was very emotional. A couple of guys were teary and it’s no bad thing to be motivated by that.“We got the perfect start (first-minute penalty and early try against Leicester), had a little bit of a wobble around 60 minutes, but held out (to win 30-23).“We went back to the Stoop afterwards with the fans, Nick Easter sang a couple of songs and there were a couple of thousand people on the pitch.”(Getty Images)2012 – Manu magic“We hadn’t beaten New Zealand since 2003 and to get our hands on the Hillary Shield was great. I remember Dan Cole shoving the match ball up his jersey, boys swapping tops… We still had to do recovery and sit in that ice bath, so smiling for photos made the time go a bit faster.“Manu Tuilagi was a man possessed that day – running through people, making breaks. And I’d never heard Twickenham so loud; it was rocking and the scoreline (38-21) was brilliant.”(Getty Images)2013 – Close range“Unfortunately I’m not the most prolific try-scorer, but I’ve still scored more than Joe Marler!“To score a try for your country, especially at Twickenham, is great. We’d talked about putting pressure on Australia during the week and Mako Vunipola got a chargedown on Will Genia’s kick.“I was in the right place at the right time; it squirted out to me and I was a metre away. I can’t claim I ran in from 50 metres!”(Getty Images)2013 – Eye of the storm“This was against New Zealand. I think Sam Whitelock carried the ball into a tackle and I could feel it straightaway.“As the game went on, my eye slowly closed and by the end I could barely see anything. Close one of your eyes and it affects your depth perception, so catching a ball, tackling… it just throws you.“I felt pretty beaten up after that game – I also had a bulging disc. Mako Vunipola said to me, ‘What’s wrong with you? You’re 27!’” Nice touch: Chris Robshaw scores druing the Premiership’s restart (Getty Images) This article originally appeared in the September 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. (Getty Images)2015 – Decision time“If I look back at that time, leading the team through the crowds and into a World Cup was one of the highlights of my career. There were so many people and so much excitement there.“We went into the first game against Fiji, the emotions were there and we got the win, then we had the Wales game. We were in a very good position with ten to 15 minutes to go, (Wales then took a 28-25 lead) and I made a decision that didn’t pay off. It was a tough kick and we backed our process (for the lineout).“At times like those you’ve got to put it all out there and back yourself, believe in yourself, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be. Would I make the same decision again? Probably not, but hindsight is a wonderful thing.“The backlash was definitely one of the hardest times of my life, let alone my professional career. That week was extremely tough.”(Getty Images)2015 – Down and out“After losing to Wales (at RWC 2015) we were down but extremely hopeful. We’d beaten Australia in the November campaign before; we knew it would be a tough game but we were confident in ourselves.“We went into the Australia game knowing we had to win and win well. We played reasonably well but I’ve never played an Australia side like that, it’s the best Australia side I’ve played. They put us to the sword (33-13) and unfortunately we were out. The knives were sharpened by media outlets, bloggers, whoever else.“It took a long time to get over and I’ll always have the scar of that World Cup. I had good people around me but it did take time.”(Getty Images)2016 – Fractions in it“Eddie Jones came in (after RWC 2015) and I didn’t know if I was going to play. I was very privileged to be given a second opportunity and to finally win a Six Nations and a Grand Slam after finishing second four times in a row, twice on points difference. We finally got hold of that trophy!“In the World Cup, Eddie said England only had six-and-a-halves and got stuck into myself, James Haskell and a few others.“After the game in France, Haskell winked at me and came back with two six-and-a-half shirts! It was a little bit of fun and we had a photo with Eddie in the middle too. He found it quite amusing.”
Photographs Save this picture!Courtesy of Mcleod BovellText description provided by the architects. This house is located on a steep, extra wide property with views of downtown Vancouver, the Lion’s Gate Bridge and Burrard Inlet. The building flows laterally with a gently stepped horizontal navigation across and down through the site. Twenty feet of vertical distance between the street and the main floor entry is divided into three distinct experiences in order to alleviate, what would otherwise be, a relentless downward movement. First, a set of concrete platforms through a small ornamental orchard, then down a single run of stairs overhanging a pond, and finally through a courtyard over a bridge to the front door. The courtyard with its wide reflecting ponds creates a distinct space out of what would otherwise be a compressed valley between the street and the face of the building.Save this picture!SectionIn accordance with the couple’s needs, the house operates simultaneously as a private place of retreat, a place of business, and a large-scale, quasi-public entertaining space. The office is reached via an exterior access ramp beside the reflecting ponds so that business can be conducted apart from the living spaces. Dramatic interior and exterior entertaining spaces that accommodate gatherings of the client’s Ismali religious community comprise one half of the site, while more intimately-scaled spaces for private living and personal contemplation form the other half.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mcleod BovellPrivate bedroom spaces are consolidated into a compact upper floor volume that floats above the strung-out main floor. This allows two scales of main floor spaces. Large spaces with tall ceiling heights, contrast with smaller private rooms- a lounge between the kitchen and dining room and a meditation room at the stair which looks back over reflecting ponds. These programs overlap and are made cohesive through a subdued internal and external palette: architectural concrete, light gray cement panel, polished concrete floors, white gypsum wallboard, and matching millwork panels.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mcleod BovellProject gallerySee allShow lessSchool of Economics and Business Diego Portales University / Rafael Hevia + Rodrigo …Selected ProjectsTema Istanbul Showroom / Yazgan Design ArchitectureSelected Projects Share 2012 Houses 2012 Esquimalt House / Mcleod BovellSave this projectSaveEsquimalt House / Mcleod BovellSave this picture!Courtesy of Mcleod BovellHouses•Vancouver, Canada Year: Year: Canada Projects “COPY” Area: 7015 ft² Area: 7015 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs: Courtesy of Mcleod Bovell+ 12 Share Architects: Mcleod Bovell Modern Houses Area Area of this architecture project Esquimalt House / Mcleod Bovell “COPY” ArchDaily Copy ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/501943/esquimalt-house-mcleod-bovell Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/501943/esquimalt-house-mcleod-bovell Clipboard CopyAbout this officeMcleod Bovell Modern HousesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVancouverHousesCanadaPublished on May 04, 2014Cite: “Esquimalt House / Mcleod Bovell” 04 May 2014.

Facebook Twitter SHARE The British Virgin Islands, Columbia, Dominica, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia and Turks and Caicos have joined the Carbon War Room and Rocky Mountain Institute’s ‘Ten Island Renewable Challenge‘. The campaign is designed to help get the islands off fossil fuels as well as move forward with projects for schools and hospitals. The commitments were complemented by news that Virgin Limited Edition and Sir Richard Branson, who had committed Necker to the ‘Ten Island Renewable Challenge’ as a ‘demo’ island, awarded the contract to transition it on to renewables to U.S. energy firm NRG.“What we hope to do is use Necker as a test island to show how it can be done,” said Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group a1nd Carbon War Room. “The only way we’re going to win this war is by creative entrepreneurship, to make the price of clean energy cheaper than that of energy from fossil fuels.” By Gary Truitt – Feb 17, 2014 SHARE Home Energy Caribbean Islands Swapping Diesel for Renewables Caribbean Islands Swapping Diesel for Renewables Caribbean nations lack access to low-cost power because of the small size of their national market and an absence of standardized contracts and regional regulatory systems. In some cases, local energy suppliers, locked in for many years, currently enjoy a virtual monopoly over the system and creditworthiness is also a challenge for many nations. As a result, banks have been reticent to lend money for energy projects. “Islands are a microcosm of larger energy systems around the world and offer an excellent test bed to demonstrate and scale innovative, clean energy solutions,” said Amory Lovins, co-founder and chief scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute. “We’re pleased to bring our decades of experience helping businesses and communities cost-effectively shift to efficiency and renewables to help island nations move beyond clean energy roadmaps to tangible, on-the-ground results.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleState Officers Promote FFA to Indiana General AssemblyNext articleVideo Crushes the Myth that Meatless Diets are Healthier Gary Truitt
