Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Royston Wild 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. Royston Wild | Friday, 3rd April, 2020 | More on: DC PLUS Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Amid a sea of dividend cuts, Dixons Carphone (LSE: DC) could be considered by some as a safe haven.The company made no mention of any upcoming payout cuts when it updated the market last week. Instead it will make a decision on whether to pay a full-year dividend for the current year (to April 2020) when “a clearer view on the scale and duration of the impact of COVID-19” becomes apparent in the summer.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…But be prepared, I say. Difficult times for the UK economy could see sales for its big-ticket items fall off a cliff. The FTSE 250 retailer saw electrical sales surge 23% in the prior three weeks to the release. This reflected quarantined Britons loading up on laptops, TVs, and the like. This is undoubtedly a flash in the pan, though, and I expect revenues to settle back to their depressing norms before long, with weakness in its mobile operations in particular set to dominate.I don’t care about Dixons Carphone’s giant 8% forward dividend yield. I for one am avoiding this share at all costs.More big yields!It’s not all bad news, though. Plus500 (LSE: PLUS) is one share I’d be very happy to invest my hard-earned investment pennies into today.This FTSE 250 dividend stock is the biggest online trading platform provider for contracts for difference (or CFDs) in Europe. And it is doing a roaring trade at the moment as the coronavirus crisis creates mass volatility on financial markets.Plus 500 said in mid-March that it had witnessed “a significantly increased level of customer trading activity alongside strong momentum across all financial and operational KPIs.” Heightened levels of market volatility means that revenue from customer income has been “very strong” it added, while it has also enjoyed gains from customer trading performance.It said that uncertainty over how long current volatility will last – allied with the impact of regulatory changes in Australia – means that the full-year outcome is difficult to predict. What it did say, however, was that “we expect revenue and profitability for the full year to be substantially ahead of current consensus expectations.”A better FTSE 250 dividend stockIt’s no big surprise, then, that Plus500’s share price has actually risen while broader equity markets have remained under pressure. It recently touched one-year highs above £11 per share, in fact. It’s fair to expect the company to continue marching higher, too, as spreading infection rates, and a likely rise in government lockdown measures in response, likely keep investor nerves on edge.What’s more, Plus500’s share price is low enough to support more meaty gains. A forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 8.1 times sits well inside bargain-benchmark territory of 10 times or above. This reading’s particularly attractive when you consider the strong possibility that brokers will be frantically upgrading their earnings forecasts when first-quarter financials come out on 7 April.As I said earlier, Plus500 is a particularly attractive stock choice for income investors. This is due to its mighty 5.7% dividend yield. There are some long-term regulatory issues that the trading giant still has to hurdle. At recent prices, though, I reckon it could be considered too good to pass up on. And particularly as payout cuts continue across the rest of the market.

first_imgThursday Dec 3, 2015 Heyneke Meyer steps down as Springbok coach following disappointing 2015 Heyneke Meyer has effectively stepped down as coach of the Springboks, advising the South African Rugby Union (SARU) that he longer wishes to be considered as a Head Coach candidate going forward. Meyer led the Springboks to a third place showing at RWC 2015.Meyer recently met with SARU President, Oregan Hoskins, and CEO, Jurie Roux. The decisions follows those meetings, with Meyer stating that he has chosen to stand aside for the best interests of South African rugby, following recent developments.In 2015 South Africa lost to Argentina and Japan, both for the first time ever.The Japan loss at the World Cup was particularly damaging, although led by Meyer and senior players, the squad turned things around and went on to win every match and get within two points of the eventual champions, the All Blacks, in the semi final.The Springboks then beat Argentina, to end in a respectable third place overall.When Meyer took over after the 2011 World Cup the team were at fourth place in the official world rankings, before he lifted them to second in the world by the end of his first season in charge. They maintained that positions in 2013 and 2014, with a combined winning ratio of 77%.During that period there was a record breaking win over Australia in Brisbane (38-12), a big Rugby Championship win over Argentina in Soweto (73-13) and the first away win over France in 16 years. The Springboks also achieved two unbeaten end of year tours to the UK.Meyer’s overall record stands at 34 victories from 50 matches, scoring 143 Test tries during that time, second only to New Zealand during that period.A new approach was exciting Bok fans, with an expansive style of attacking rugby, but in 2015 that all seemed to change, and the gameplan seemed very focused on the traditional strengths, as the Springboks seemingly went into their shells.This, along with a few selections that fans didn’t agree with, is one of the huge reasons for Meyer’s detractors calling for his head on numerous occasions.“I have always put the Springboks first in my time as coach and since returning from England I have realised that as much as I believe I still have a lot to offer, the time has come for change,” said Meyer.“My integrity has always been very important and I feel I can leave with my head held high. I’ve always maintained that my only motivation was to serve my country and to do what was best for the Springboks. “I have greatly enjoyed my time as Springbok coach – although it has been highly pressured at times and especially tough on my family, and I would like to thank them for their unwavering support in the last four years. “I have put my heart and soul into the job and did my very best. I believe that, overall, I leave the team with much to look forward to in 2016, with new structures in place to ensure the Springboks will remain competitive on the world stage.“The number of young players that have been blooded over the past four seasons, who chose to remain in South Africa, leave the team in a great position to move on in the next few years. I would like to wish the next coach all the success in this wonderful position.“The Springboks are a special team and carrying the hopes of a nation is a huge responsibility and great privilege. I realised that yet again with all the support I received from ordinary South Africans, both at the World Cup and upon our return to the country.“Thank you to the countless faithful, positive and passionate supporters that have made my job as coach a joy. “To everyone at SARU and for the hard work and commitment of my management and support team, I will be forever thankful. And finally to the players – you are ultimately the reason why I coach and you’ve enriched my life in the last four years.”Mr Hoskins thanked Meyer for his services to South African rugby.“We have reached a natural watershed in many ways with a significant number of senior players either retiring or moving overseas as well as the fact that our Strategic Transformation Plan is now in full swing,” said Mr Hoskins.“Heyneke gave his all for the Springboks and it was a great pleasure to work with such a passionate South African. There were many highlights during his time as coach and those are the moments we will remember.“He also set very high standards of behaviour for himself, his management team and his players and he was and is a credit to South African rugby. I’m sure all my colleagues join me in wishing him the very best of luck in whatever coaching path his career now takes him.”SARU said that the search for a successor would begin immediately. The CEO will present the process of recruitment as per the recommendation of the High Performance Committee for approval to the Executive Council on Wednesday, after which it will be shared with the provincial unions at the General Council meeting two days later.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Springboks Related Articles 84 WEEKS AGO Pieter Steph du Toit named World Rugby Player… 87 WEEKS AGO Josh Larsen sees red for no-arms ruck charge… 94 WEEKS AGO Throwback Thursday: Relive the Battle of… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The property for this project is nestled in an idyllic valley on the edge of Graz. The landscape features idyllic rural scenery, meadows, forests and a steep hillside that affords fabulous views of Graz. On this beautiful site, two buildings were built for three generations. The higher, smaller building features living quarter for the grandparents and an office below, while the larger building below offers ample space for the parents and children.Save this picture!© Tamara FrischThe buildings themselves are designed as viewing platforms in the hillside, which fold together in the form of simple frames. The high point in the frame creates an exciting interior room with different heights and a type of gabled roof – not least as a tribute to the traditional rural style of construction found in the area. Thus, two dynamic buildings are created which lie smoothly, almost floating on the hillside.Save this picture!Floor PlanInside, both buildings are designed as open, loft-like, spacious rooms, with all areas being oriented toward the ample terraces. Large sliding doors inside and to the terraces outside allow the various rooms and outside space to blend into one another. The spacious windows and overhangs merge the outside with the inside space and create one complete living space.Save this picture!© Tamara FrischThe buildings are solidly constructed out of brick and ferro-concrete. All transparent building components consist of triple window panes with external blinds integrated into the overhangs, which also form a passive protection against the sun.

The warrant was prompted by an article critical of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that was previously posted on a blog.“Repressive measures against journalists who oppose President Ahmadinejad or dare to criticise his policies have become commonplace,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The room for freedom in Iran was already considerably reduced but it continues to get smaller by the day and the president is increasingly being regarded as untouchable.”The warrant for the arrest of Haghshenas was issued by the Tehran prosecutor’s office for “publishing false information designed to upset public opinion.” His newspaper has reportedly not been threatened with closure but the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance warned it about making “baseless allegations about the president.”The measures were taken in response to an article in the 30 June issue by Rasoul Montajab-Nia, a religious leader and member of the Etemad Melli party, condemning President Ahmadinejad’s much-criticised comment in May that the hand of the Mahdi (regarded by Shiites as the twelfth and last Imam) was “visible in the management of all the country’s affairs.”Montajab-Nia wrote in his article, which he posted as entry in his blog, that such comments “undermine the beliefs of the people and are increasingly mocked by the enemies of Islam.” He was reportedly not notified in advance that the entry was going to published in the newspaper. The Etemad Melli party is led by Mehdi Kerroubi, who ran against Ahmadinejad in the 2005 presidential election.Many publications and websites have been prosecuted or closed on administrative orders for criticising Ahmadinejad since he became president. The daily Tehran Emrooz was stripped of its licence last month after running a series of reports pouring scorn on Ahmadinejad’s economic management while mayor of Tehran, before he became president.The council of state closed the website Baztab in March 2007 after it was the target of many complaints brought by Ahmadinejad supporters.center_img Receive email alerts to go further IranMiddle East – North Africa Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Help by sharing this information March 18, 2021 Find out more Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Newslast_img read more

The full list has yet been published but it could include media.The draft order now goes to the state governor, Sushil Kumar Shinde, then to the President of the Indian Union, for ratification. It comes a few days after a landmine blast in which 23 Indian police officers died.At a joint press conference on 5 September by the home minister and the state police chief to present the new ordinance, journalists were warned by officials that they faced arrest for interviewing Maoists and that media seen to be supporting the Maoists could be shut down and their property confiscated.“You can’t fight an armed rebellion by stopping journalists from talking about it,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation. “The Chhattisgarh government commits a serious violation of press freedom by imposing a news blackout on the Maoist movement. If the ordinance is adopted in the state it will block all independent news coverage in the regions affected by the Maoist rebellion,” it said.“We urge the Chhattisgarh governor and the president of the Indian Union not to approve this ruling out of respect for the Constitution that guarantees freedom of expression”.A MP with the state’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) created uproar on 1st September after a local newspaper reported that he had said in the presence of journalists that “journalists who glorify Maoists should be killed”. The nationalist politician added in the following days that the government should jail journalists who travel to areas controlled by the Maoists, also known as Naxalists.Several journalists in the state capital Raipur told Reporters Without Borders that the draft law was a serious blow for free expression. “Journalists working in zones where the Maoists are active, come under huge pressure from the security forces,” said Ruchir Garg, who works for the national TV channel Sahara. Regional daily editor Alok Putul of Deshbandhu reminded the organisation that in 2004 the home minister ordered police to use any means to prevent the spread of news about the Maoists.
