Forget cash! I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA for a rising passive income in retirement

Forget cash! I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA for a rising passive income in retirement

first_img You might clean up with this stock, too. Forget cash! I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA for a rising passive income in retirement Image source: Getty Images I wouldn’t like to build my retirement on cash, given today’s near-zero returns. But FTSE 100 stocks look much more tempting. Although dozens have scrapped or suspended their dividends this year, plenty are standing by their shareholder payouts.Dividend stocks are so attractive because they don’t just give you a regular income, but a rising income, as companies aim to increase their payouts over time. This will help your spending power keep up with inflation. By contrast, money held in cash is likely to erode in real terms. The following two FTSE 100 utility company stocks look dependable income bets for my portfolio.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…Water and wastewater specialist United Utilities Group (LSE: UU) offers plenty of buoyancy, despite the stock market storms in March. This FTSE 100 stock now trades 5.4% higher than a year ago, against a drop of 15% across the index as a whole.Shun cash to buy UK sharesThis week, it increased its dividend despite a 16% fall in first-half underlying profit after tax to £174m. The profit drop was due to new price controls and increased infrastructure spending. Covid-19 may have an impact if customers will struggle to pay their bills and bad debts rise. This hasn’t happened yet, but 2021 is likely to be the crunch year. Management still believes existing provisions are enough though.Crucially for those buying FTSE 100 stocks to generate a passive income in retirement, the board increased the dividend by 1.5%. This is in line with its policy of increasing shareholder payout each year, in line with the CPIH inflation measurement.Right now, United Utilities yields 4.4%, covered 1.5 times by earnings. That’s far more than I could dream of getting on cash. Naturally, shares are riskier than leaving money in the bank, but United Utilities is relatively safe as FTSE 100 stocks go. A P/E valuation of 14.5 times earnings looks tempting to me.Sticking with the theme, I’d also include water utility and waste management specialist Pennon Group (LSE: PNN) in my passive income portfolio. Again, this FTSE 100 stock escaped the worst of the March crash and trades around 3.5% higher than a year ago.I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks for incomePennon has just announced a 14.5% drop in half-year underlying pre-tax profits, to £86.7m. This was expected, as business customers used less water during the lockdown. It’s now flushed with cash after receiving £3.7bn from the disposal of Viridor. The money will allow it to pay down debt, top up its pension scheme, and still have £2.7bn in the coffers.The downside of the Viridor sale is that Pennon is now dependent on its South West Water business to fund dividends. The yield is forecast will fall from 4.5% to 2.1%, although it will continue to be increased by CPIH plus 2%.So what will it do with the cash? Buying Southern Water is one option and that would boost dividends. The other is directly returning spare cash to shareholders. Given the uncertainty, of these two FTSE 100 stocks, I’d rather buy United Utilities today. But I’m keeping a close watch on Pennon.

Crowd favourite Nick Cummins bags a hat-trick as Force upset Waratahs

Crowd favourite Nick Cummins bags a hat-trick as Force upset Waratahs

first_imgSunday Apr 13, 2014 Crowd favourite Nick Cummins bags a hat-trick as Force upset Waratahs The Western Force have done it again, this time upsetting the Waratahs 28-16 in Perth to claim their fifth consecutive win. Winger Nick Cummins, aka the Honey Badger, scored a hat-trick as the in form ‘Tahs came off second best in the Aussie derby. Before the match there were a few calls for Cummins to back up his off-field chat by scoring a few tries, and score tries he did, becoming only the third Force player to ever grab three in a match.His first was a brilliant intercept and 90m sprint after an incredible passage of play saw the Waratahs work their way up field – with some big hits in the process – before Cummins snatched a long pass and sped off. His handshake with a fan in the front row was a nice touch.The atmosphere in Perth, where there was a crowd of 14,281, was outstanding, and the players fed off that as both teams smashed into one another, with the Honey Badger picking up the scraps.His second came from a sniping break by Alby Mathewson, before he collected a loose ball for his third, forcing his way over the line despite a good chase back by Cam Crawford.The Waratahs scored through Kurtley Beale but the Force had this one wrapped up, jumping to second place on the Australian conference ahead of next weekend’s meeting with the Rebels.“Dane Haylett-Petty played 60 minutes of club football today and arrived an hour before the game, and then played 75 minutes of Super Rugby. Nathan Charles plays himself into a standstill and collapses on the sidelines,” said Force coach Michael Foley. “We had a lot of heroes out there and we have now gone past what we did last year, which is nice, and we have a really big challenge in six days against the Rebels. That’s a significant challenge on the back of what was Test match intensity out there.”You can view two post match chats with Hat-trick Honey Badger on pages two and three of this postQuick post match chat with hat-trick hero Nick CumminsA longer chat with Cummins after the game, with Nick McArdle and Phil KearnsADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The house is located in Valle de Bravo, Estado de Mexico, Mexico, weather ranges from 33°C to -2°C. The plot faces Avándaro Lake and the protected forest area of Cerro Gordo, rich in pine and oak trees.ConceptFor the concept of this project, we asked ourselves whether or not we were capable of building a house that would respect nature to the fullest and forge a connection with the building’s surroundings (without speaking of energy, sustainability, and ecology) that through its impact and experience would generate that same respect for the natural world. To do so, we have taken advantage of the slope of the land in order to create visual connections at different elevations with the existing vegetation and landscape beyond.Save this picture!Floor Plan+ 28The site is a splendid plot covering 3,500 m2 with rich and varied flora, very tall trees, and a view towards the layered hills of Valle de Bravo – a town 150 km south-west of Mexico City. The climate is cool in winter while summer temperatures can reach 35°C and heavy rain falls daily between June and October.Save this picture!© Paul RiveraThe house occupies a natural ledge in the hillside, facing the view to the south and turning its back to the winds coming in from the north. The ground drops away beneath the floor, emphasizing the slope of the land and thereby dramatizing the house’s progress through the site. The house evokes the feeling of floating above the garden, accentuating a sense of contact with nature.Save this picture!© Paul RiveraThe continuity between landscape and building is stressed by a glazed structural window system, transcending conventional distinctions between inside and outside. As a result, all the spaces are in direct and intimate contact with the outdoors. The play of light and shadow upon these windows echoes the abstracted shadows of trees cast across the courtyards of the convent in Desierto de los Leones, located near Mexico City.Save this picture!© Paul RiveraThe cladding of the house evolved progressively in order to fit into the context of the town. An artisanal clay veneer was specially developed for the project, similar in texture to the traditional houses that you notice in the area. Its reaction to the weather causes the material to change constantly in response to varying levels of humidity.Save this picture!Wall Section 1Two pavilions, unequal in size, are set in front of the pool area. The first and biggest one contains the living and dining spaces, kitchen and a working studio. The second one: two bedrooms. Each pavilion was carefully placed on the site, incorporating all the existing trees into the program and facing the most important views. The house is deeply rooted in the existing landscape.Save this picture!© Paul RiveraUpon arrival, the visitor encounters several experiences: the escarpment, the flora, the house, the reflecting pool. Visitors are received under the protection of a steel enclosure, entering through a small door that leads to the living room, thereby emphasizing the contrast between the closed nature of the entrance and the full openness of the living spaces and the valley itself.Save this picture!© Paul RiveraProject gallerySee allShow lessTrangtien Street / Studio 8ArticlesIn Progress: 8 House / BIGArticles Share Area:  650 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses 2009 House in the Woods / Parque HumanoSave this projectSaveHouse in the Woods / Parque Humano Year:  “COPY” “COPY” Photographs:  Paul Rivera Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Parque Humano Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img CopyHouses•Valle de Bravo, Mexico ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/63069/house-in-the-woods-parque-humano Clipboard Save this picture!© Paul Rivera+ 28 Share Photographs House in the Woods / Parque Humano Projects Mexico ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/63069/house-in-the-woods-parque-humano Clipboard CopyAbout this officeParque HumanoOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesValle de BravoHousesNew YorkWoodTop100MexicoPublished on June 07, 2010Cite: “House in the Woods / Parque Humano” 07 Jun 2010.

The site is on a rare flat area of what is actually a relatively hilly suburb, the overall land plot is a combination of two lots, one housed the original dwellings and the other was the neighbouring land previously used as a tennis court. There were originally two dwellings on the site. One was the original 1960’s house and next to that was a newer house built by the client in the 1980’s. The 1960’s house was mainly used as guest quarters and being very period and original has been retained as the staff quarters. The 1980’s house no longer worked for the client despite being lavishly appointed. Thus the building was to be demolished to make way for a new Dream Wolf house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wolf ArchitectsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Wolf ArchitectsDemolishing the old house was not however a complete waste, as many quality fittings and materials were recycled and reused. Many large slabs of marble were used as feature wall panels as seen flanking the main entry door which was then highlighted with a minimalist bronze frame. The Main building shell is rendered in an off white cement render. Within the shell is a solid double brick structure clad in a variety of sand stone and travertine tiles.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wolf Architects“A clever combination of periodic style & contemporary residential design…”The main challenge was introducing cues to the 80’s as per the clients wish without creating a style that looked dated and out of place. In this regard Wolf Architects focused a lot on the material palette. Key moments and spaces make use of retro slabs of marble with brass or bronze detailing. Throughout the exterior and interior are two toned themes which emphasise the black and white checker-board fashion of the 1980’s. This is particularly highlighted in the master bathroom, where dark charcoal grey was used instead of black to bring a more contemporary feel.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wolf Architects“A sentimental statement to last a lifetime…”The kitchen area makes use of the original parquetry flooring of the previous home which in itself had already been recycled from a ballroom the clients used to frequent before it closed down. The finish was intentionally kept relatively rough and original to express the embodied memory of the material. Complimenting that was a semi-industrial looking kitchen with exposed steel posts and timber panelled ceiling. Purple glass splash backs further animate and compliment the vintage designer furnishings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wolf ArchitectsScattered throughout the home are various small courtyards and fish ponds. The original native trees were also kept as they were on the property forming a reserve like garden which separates the main house and the guest wing. The rear of the building has a large swimming pool tiled in Italian mosaics. Framing the pool are perfectly flat manicured lawns, a bowls green and decking spaces, making it all great for entertaining – which the client loved to do. Parking for the owner’s cars and marine vessels was imperative but they also went as far as providing off street parking for their guests.“The conclusion of one era & the commencement of another…”Save this picture!Courtesy of Wolf ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Rock / Studio Pacific Architecture + Warren and MahoneySelected ProjectsCaruso St John Architects’ Newport Street Gallery Wins the 2016 Stirling PrizeArchitecture News Share 2014 Projects ArchDaily Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project United States Super Villa / Wolf ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSuper Villa / Wolf Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/795112/super-villa-wolf-architects Clipboard Houses Save this picture!Courtesy of Wolf Architects+ 16 Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Los Angeles, United Stateslast_img read more

Located in Natanz’s suburbs, this small plot of land was chosen to become the home of a cozy villa with a limited budget for construction. The client’s main demand was preserving the view toward south-east horizontal gardens for all interior spaces while maintaining their privacy. In addition to the concern mentioned above, because of the political importance of this site in which nuclear facilities are located, there was limited access to materials and professional workforce. This compelled the client to merely use the local materials.Save this picture!© Arash AshouriniaSince according to Nataz city code, just one floor on the top of the pilot level was allowed to build, and pilot level did not have any views over the flat gardens in the southeast, it was decided to leave the pilot level open as much as possible and transfer all functional needs to the first floor. After placing all spaces on one floor, the main challenge was to preserve the view of all spaces.Save this picture!Design Process DiagramDesign started with separating the public spaces (living room, kitchen) and private spaces (bedrooms, bathrooms) as two independent boxes. The only configuration that would allow all the interior spaces to have a view to the gardens while maintaining their independence was to juxtapose the boxes in an L shape form while having a common ground.Save this picture!© Arash AshouriniaThe westward wall that was the only one shared with Public Street was covered with brick texture to both guards the unpleasant western light and maintain the privacy of the property. Large windows from floor to ceiling were placed for the walls which overlooked the gardens including kitchen and living room, the size of these windows were smaller in the bedrooms.Save this picture!Section 1Main materials that are used in this project are traditional brick and granite stones, both of which are local materials of the region. When we used a local material in the construction, the client’s concerns regarding material transportation from the capital to the city of Natanz were alleviated; it also contributed to the local employment in the region and met the client’s limited budget.Save this picture!© Arash AshouriniaProject gallerySee allShow lessEXPO 2017 Legacy: What is Venue’s Future?ExhibitionShinsegae International / Olson KundigSelected Projects Share 2016 Year:  Faezeh Arefnazari-Ruhollah Rasooli Manufacturers: KWC, Kavir, Superpipe “COPY” Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/881474/natanz-villa-white-on-white-studio Clipboard Iran Natanz Villa / White on White Studio Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeWhite on White StudioOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNatanzIranPublished on October 16, 2017Cite: “Natanz Villa / White on White Studio” 16 Oct 2017.

first_img News March 25, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists freed on health grounds after being held arbitrarily for months YemenMiddle East – North Africa Organisation RSF_en to go further YemenMiddle East – North Africa Two illegally-held journalists have been freed in the past 24 hours on medical grounds. They are Mohamed Al-Maqalih, the editor of the opposition Socialist Party’s news website, Al Eshteraki, who was released today “for humanitarian and health reasons,” and Hisham Bashraheel, the founder and owner of the daily Al-Ayyam, who was released yesterday.“We hail the release of Maqalih and Bashraheel but it is totally unacceptable that the Yemeni authorities kept them in detention without bringing any charges against them,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the authorities to put an end to the campaign of harassment being waged against the media.”Maqalih was kidnapped by five masked gunmen while returning to his home in Sanaa on the evening of 18 September (http://www.rsf.org/Still-no-word-of-opposition.html). After being held incommunicado for more than 100 days, he was taken before the prosecutor of a special criminal court in Sanaa on 3 February. He said at the hearing that he had been tortured and deprived of food for several days.A media source said he was admitted to a Sanaa hospital yesterday for treatment before being released today.An Al-Ayyam journalist told Reporters Without Borders that Bashraheel, aged 66 and a diabetic, was “in a state of extreme fatigue” when he arrived at his home in Aden yesterday. “While he was held, the prison’s medical director wrote a report describing his state of health as serious,” the journalist said. “The Yemeni authorities did not free him although this information was available to them.”Bashraheel was arrested on 6 January, after a 24-hour siege of his newspaper’s Aden headquarters by the security forces. One of his sons, Hani Bashraheel, the newspaper’s editor, was arrested at the same time. Another son, Mohammed Hisham Bashraheel, was arrested the day before (http://www.rsf.org/Army-machineguns-protestors.html).The authorities have promised to release both sons on 27 March.Security forces previously fired on Al-Ayyam’s headquarters on 13 May 2009 (http://www.rsf.org/Soldiers-fire-on-Aden-based.html), nine days after the information minister banned it from printing for the sake of the “country’s national unity” (http://www.rsf.org/Major-crackdown-on-independent.html). The situation worsened on 15 July when one of its reporters, Anis Ahmed Mansur Hamida, was sentenced to 14 months in prison for “attacking national unity” and “separatism” at the end of a politically-motivated trial (http://www.rsf.org/Al-Ayyam-reporter-gets-14-month.html). He remains in prison.An independent daily created in 1958 and based in Aden, Al-Ayyam is one of Yemen’s most important newspapers. It has no political affiliation but acts as the mouthpiece of the inhabitants of the southern provinces and in recent months has provided detailed coverage of the demonstrations taking place in what is the country’s poorest region.The authorities confiscated broadcasting equipment from the Sanaa bureaux of the pan-Arab satellite TV stations Al Arabiya and Al Jazeera on 11 March (http://www.rsf.org/Authorities-continue-to-harass.html).
