Best investments for 2020: 5 UK shares I’d buy right now

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Many investors might be hesitant about buying UK shares at the moment. Indeed, the outlook for many London-listed companies is currently highly uncertain. However, the best investments are often those other investors are avoiding. As such, I’m going to take a look at five UK shares I believe could produce high total returns for investors in the long run. 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…UK shares to buyThe first company on my list is the recruitment business Hays. With the unemployment rising around the world, income has plunged at this FTSE 250 recruiter. But I’m interested in the group’s long-term potential.When the current crisis passes and employees return to the market, Hays’ services will be in demand. This could lead to rapid profit growth and high cash returns to investors. Therefore, I think now could be an excellent time to buy the stock while it trades at a low level ahead of the economic recovery. Centamin may also be one of the best investments for 2020. I think this gold miner can provide investors with attractive returns, no matter what the future holds for the global economy.Further economic turmoil could push the gold price higher, which will push up Centamin’s profits. And if the economy recovers, demand for gold jewellery and other gold items will rise. The miner should profit either way. In the meantime, the stock offers a 6% dividend yield.Tate & Lyle is one of the oldest listed UK shares. Is offers similar qualities to Centamin. As a provider of ingredients to the food and beverage industries, the group’s sales should hold up relatively well, no matter what the future holds for the global economy. A dividend yield of 4.5% is also extremely attractive in the current interest rate environment. Best investments for 2020In the blue-chip space, Rio Tinto could be one of the best investments for 2020. The world’s largest iron ore miner may benefit from increased economic stimulus following the coronavirus crisis.The price of iron ore has increased by more than 20% this year as countries such as China have started spending to offset the impact of the coronavirus slump. This growth could lead to improved returns for Rio’s investors. Analysts have already pencilled in a dividend yield of 7% for the company this year. Another blue-chip income stock I have my eye on right now is British American Tobacco. Ethical considerations aside, this income champion has produced excellent returns for investors over the past decade.This trend looks set to continue. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 8%, and the payout is well covered by earnings per share. Despite this, shares in the tobacco giant are off around 30% since the beginning of the year. Following this decline, I think this could be one of the best investments to buy for 2020.  Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in British American Tobacco.

Hobbs starts at 10 for Blues

first_img“Michael Hobbs impressed in the last game and throughout the pre-season. He’s in great nick so he will start at 10,” Lam said. “There was really good competition for the number 10 jersey and Piri showed his class but we feel at this stage as he is just returning to rugby, it is best to bring him off the bench.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Michael Hobbs (left) beats Piri Weepu to the #10 shirtBlues coach Pat Lam has named a starting line-up of players who earned their jerseys through solid pre-season performances and are in optimum shape to play the Crusaders in the opening round of the Investec Super Rugby season.Captained by Keven Mealamu, the Blues welcome back winger Rudi Wulf after a stint in Toulon and he is joined by North Harbour speedster David Raikuna who will make his debut this Friday night on the right wing.“In the highly competitive outside backs, David Raikuna has put his hand up. He had a very good game against the Highlanders so he’s earned his spot on the right wing. With Sherwin Stowers getting injured in the Rebels game it has given David the chance to start and take the opportunity in a big game,” says LamMichael Hobbs, also returning to the Blues has secured the No.10 starting position and it is his form to-date that has impressed the coaches.

This project was a renovation and extension to a single fronted, double storey Victorian terrace house in South Melbourne. The existing house was long and narrow, and consisted of a series of dark, dilapidated rooms planned in a linear configuration. In addition, the site had numerous challenges, with limited access, 100‐year‐old two storey brick walls on both long boundaries and a site that sloped away to the rear.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittThe brief was to create a striking, modern extension with light filled open spaces whilst reconstructing the period house at the front.Save this picture!Floor PlansWe started by locating all the wet areas – bathrooms and laundries in the centre of the house, with access to internal courtyards which also allowed light into the kitchen and bedrooms via a series of skylights and light shafts. This allowed the main living spaces to open up to the rear, allowing light and natural ventilation through the house.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittThe client also wanted to create a house that had its’ own identity and personality which viewed from the rear courtyard. So we custom‐designed a laser‐cut metal screening device at the rear that makes reference to the period iron lacework at the front of the house. So whilst it is made of metal and has a lace‐like appearance, it also appears very light and provides varying levels of transparency. It also provides privacy to the upstairs bedrooms and creates interesting shadows through the day.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittInternally, the open stairs connect the three levels up to a large roof deck, which provides additional open space for the clients to enjoy. It also provides a thermal chimney effect to minimise the need for mechanical cooling.Save this picture!© Tatjana PlittProject gallerySee allShow lessANHS House / G+ ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Renovation of JiJiaDun Village Center / YzscapeSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Cecil St House / Chan ArchitectureSave this projectSaveCecil St House / Chan Architecture Houseslast_img read more

first_imgSan Salvador, El Salvador — In yet another sign of the revolutionary momentum sweeping the Americas, Salvador Sánchez Cerén was inaugurated president of El Salvador on June 1 amidst an emotional and victorious air of celebration here in the capital.President Sánchez Cerén is the historic and beloved leader of the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) and a former commander in El Salvador’s guerrilla army.The FMLN carried out a powerful people’s war from 1980 to 1992 against El Salvador’s brutal U.S.-orchestrated death squads and ruling elite.  These reactionary forces killed thousands of people during that period.President Sánchez Cerén’s inauguration took place at a formal session of the Legislative Assembly held at the International Convention Center. An impressive 6,000 Salvadorans and international guests were present.International representatives included presidents Evo Morales of Bolivia and Rafael Correa of Ecuador, Cuban Vice President Salvador Valdés Mesa and a representative of the Venezuelan government. All received thunderous applause and the best welcome of all the international guests. Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro sent a warm message of congratulations to Sánchez Cerén.The outgoing president, Mauricio Funes, an FMLN supporter, received a moving and very warm farewell from the audience in recognition of the many changes he carried out for El Salvador’s poor and working people under his administration, including the creation of a Women’s Hospital.Funes’ government was the first to be progressive and pro-FMLN since the end of the bloody civil war.Turning pointThere is no denying that the election of not just one but two former guerrilla fighters into the highest offices marks a turning point for the people of El Salvador, as the new vice president, Oscar Ortiz, was also an FMLN commander.Carlos Canales, a co-coordinator of the May 1st Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights and an organizer of the National Day Laborers Organizing Network from the New York area, told Workers World: “I never thought I would see the day when not just one, but two commanders would have such positions.  This represents a new day for us. It represents hope for a better future. It pays tribute to all the martyrs and dead of El Salvador’s civil war. I am overcome with emotion.”Indeed, the many references to El Salvador’s guerrilla leaders during the inauguration were surely taken note of by U.S. imperialism, despite the absence of any high-level U.S. representatives.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had been present for the Funes inauguration in 2009.Sigfrido Reyes, president of the Legislative Assembly, opened the inauguration with a somber and formal tone. But there was no denying the recognition of the important and revolutionary role the FMLN has played in the country.When Reyes referred to the martyrs and leaders of the FMLN, the crowd burst into applause.The masses took to their feet with especially thunderous applause when the Assembly leader mentioned FMLN guerrilla leader Schafik Hándal.Hándal, of Palestinian origin, was a member of the Communist Party of El Salvador and one of the major leaders and fighters of the FMLN. He was one of the promoters, founders and participants in the armed struggle of that country. When he died of natural causes in 2006, a mass funeral procession of tens of thousands took place in the streets of San Salvador.Schafik Hándal, along with newly inaugurated President Sánchez Cerén, supported and founded a major militant teachers’ union, ANDES 21 de Junio, which led many great struggles and strikes.Sánchez Cerén was a signer on behalf of the FMLN of the Chapultepec Peace Accords in 1992 that ended the formal civil war. According to a statement from the U.S.-based Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES), Sánchez Cerén “has remained a leading voice within the party for a revolutionary, democratic and socialist vision.”CISPES, one of the longest-running solidarity organizations in the U.S., went on to say that Sánchez Cerén’s victory is “all the more significant as a departure from two decades of hard-right rule by the ARENA party and a further step to the left from the progressive Funes administration.”ARENA, the Nationalist Republican Alliance, is historically a vicious right-wing formation that, along with the U.S. government, has the blood of hundreds of thousands of Salvadorans on its hands.It was easy to observe that someone very unpopular had entered the huge venue when the applause and chants were replaced by boos. The son of 1980s ARENA leader Roberto d’Aubuisson and other pro-ARENA officials were loudly booed and jeered as they entered the convention center, after having reportedly shunned President Funes.  D’Aubuisson was the mastermind of many massacres of Salvadoran peasants, women, faith leaders and workers.The first act announced by the Assembly president after President Sánchez Cerén’s inauguration speech was a prompt investigation of corruption and slander by d’Aubuisson elements. Students, campesinos, unionists and activists in the audience greeted this announcement with thunderous applause.During the event, chants of “FMLN, FMLN, FMLN” and “¡No volverán!” (“They will not return!”) were a message to friends and enemies alike that the masses are ready to continue the fight for liberation and justice.Challenges aheadEl Salvador faces many challenges.  Poverty is rampant. Illegal drugs headed for the U.S. market cause many instabilities and violence, all connected to the Pentagon. The minimum wage in the country is about $6 a day, yet gas is a whopping $4 a quart.However, according to, immediately after President Sánchez Cerén’s inauguration, El Salvador became a member of Petrocaribe.  Petrocaribe is an alliance, primarily among Caribbean countries, to trade oil at favorable prices for the non-oil producers. It was established by the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.El Salvador Foreign Minister Hugo Martínez issued a statement that because El Salvador has no natural petroleum resources of its own, joining Petrocaribe allows the country to better fulfill its energy needs “under the principles of cooperation, solidarity, fair prices and mutual benefit.”Exxon’s CEO must have trembled in his boots.Showing the dangers faced by the FMLN administration, a few days before the inauguration an unknown assailant shot into a bus, killing several innocent people. President Funes described it as a terrorist act and a warning to the incoming Cerén administration.The greatest danger comes from U.S. imperialism, which has not and never will reconcile itself to the changing tide in Latin America. It has never stopped its war against revolutionary Cuba and continues to attempt to destabilize the Venezuelan, Bolivian and Ecuadorian governments.U.S. imperialism ousted President Mel Zelaya in Honduras in 2009 and prevented the election of Xiomara Castro de Zelaya in the presidential election there this year.The FMLN faces the challenge of defending its gains from imperialism while administering a capitalist state. Like the African National Congress in South Africa, a revolutionary grouping that favors the interests of the masses over those of international finance capital, the FMLN too faces a major contradiction.How much can a revolutionary grouping carry out without seizing — as socialist Cuba did — the means of production from the hands of the capitalist class and putting everything in the hands of the workers?One advantage the FMLN has is that the masses of El Salvador are class conscious. There are reports that the police in the country are closer to the people than the capitalist class.Above all, the Salvadoran workers and peasants have the rich experience of doing everything, including picking up arms, to defend themselves from exploitation and misery.Francisco Morazán, a beloved Honduran leader from the 1800s who is described as the Simón Bolívar of Honduras, asked to be buried in El Salvador upon his death in 1842.Morazán was a visionary who fought for the unity of Central America as one nation. He was president of the Federal Republic of Central America from 1830 to 1839. He asked to be buried in El Salvador in recognition of the unique fighting spirit of the Salvadoran people.This is surely the legacy that will ultimately triumph in El Salvador.  Sooner or later, the Salvadoran working class, its students, peasants, women and youth will wrest everything their society needs and deserves away from the ARENA party and the d’Aubissons of the country.U.S. imperialism will be defeated and Central America will one day be united in the vision of Morazán. Victory to the FMLN!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Despite the rise, unemployment still remained below the 4.3 percent rate recorded during the same period last year.“Job gains were solid, with sizable upward revisions to the prior two months, and annual wage gains held steady,” said Doug Duncan Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “While the unemployment rate increased for the first time since August, it was accompanied by a two-tenths rise in the labor force participation rate, marking the first advance in four months.”Data also indicated a rise in wages or hourly earnings by 2.7 percent, a figure that is likely to bring some relief to homebuyers according to Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at“If the unemployment rate continues to remain low, companies may continue to push salary increases, which could offer some relief for home buyers. There are more than 15 percent fewer entry-level homes under $200,000 on the market this year than last year,” said Hale. “In contrast, there are slightly more $350,000 plus homes on the market than last year. If raises help buyers reach beyond entry-level homes, it could lead to a better match up of home shoppers and available homes.”However, Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree believed that wage growth remained weak despite this hike. “Despite the low unemployment rates, wages continue to disappoint. The increase in the labor force participation rate may offer a clue as to why,” Kapfidze said. “The large pool of available people to enter the labor force is a drag on wages as it reduces the bargaining power of workers who are already employed.”Friday’s numbers also indicated some hope for relief in housing supply. The data found that construction employment continued to trend up in June and had increased by 282,000 year over year. However, “a moderation in residential construction payroll gains to 4,400 from 12,600 in May disappointed,” according to Duncan.“Specifically for the housing market, residential construction employment increased, which is critically important to increase the pace of housing starts and add more housing supply to the market,” said Mark Fleming, Chief Economist, First American. “Based on the increase of residential construction employment this year, it is not surprising that housing starts have been rising.”Kapfidze agreed, “Over the past year, 282,000 total construction jobs have been added as builders work to add supply given the tight inventory and rising home prices.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago building Census Bureau Construction Fannie Mae First American Homebuyers HOUSING Inventory Jobs LendingTree Shortage Supply 2018-07-06 Radhika Ojha Share Savelast_img read more

The candidates have chosen/selected/ticked correct answers; however, it is reflecting in result that wrong & different options have been chosen/selected/ticked. 
2. The result is displaying and calculating marks in those questions, which were not even attempted by the candidates. 
3. Candidates have chosen/selected/ticked different options; however, in result different answers are shown as chosen/selected/ticked. 
4. 10 questions are either itself wrong, or their answers which are uploaded on website are wrong. 
It is also submitted that the Consortium of National Law University issued press release on 3rd October 2020 in very arrogant way, stating therein that large number of objections are filed because CLAT-2020 had made filing of objections absolutely free, however, other institutions charge Rs. 1,000/- per objection. Further, that Consortium issued a notification dated 03.10.2020 on Modifications in the Questions and Answers wherein they dropped the questions no. 146, 147 & 150 and modified the answers key for questions no. 08, 35 & 148. Therefore, neither grievance committee nor the consortium looked into the issues of objections / grievances filed by the petitioners / aspirants in large numbers, however, dealt the same with biased approach in very arrogant way.It is also submitted that some students comes from non-English background, therefore, such a debauched focus on English reading and comprehension skill has a disproportionate impact on these students. This clearly renders CLAT 2020 discriminatory and violate of Articles 14 and 15; and on this ground alone, the exam ought to be quashed as arbitrary and violative of Article 14 of the Constitution. ‘Many questions in “CLAT 2020‟ were formed in such a way that all four options were not the actual answers according to the questions, for example, question no‟s 146 to 150. Further, the wrong answers were provided in the answer key for several questions, e.g. questions 5, 6, 8, 14, 16, 19, 35, 45, 103, 122 and 125 (From the English, Logical Reasoning and Legal Reasoning sections). Apart from that, many questions had more than one right answers, so instead of choosing correct answers the candidates were trying to guess “most appropriate” option”.It is also submitted that several other questions were of such a standard that even seasoned practicing lawyers would need to do extensive legal research before attempting to answer them, and even after such research no objective answer could be given to these questions. These questions were based on opinion rather than based upon study and knowledge, hence should not have been included in such “objective” type examination Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Storylast_img read more
