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. March’s stock market crash leaves plenty of FTSE 100 stocks looking far too cheap. The UK’s blue-chip index has risen from March’s 11-year troughs, sure. But there are plenty of constituents that continue to offer what appears irresistible value, at least on paper.Don’t get too excited though. Where some investors see dirt-cheap dividend heroes on the Footsie, I only see investment traps waiting to rob you of your cash. What category do the following shares fall into?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…The iron giantBHP Group (LSE: BHP) has been attracting a lot of buying attention from value and income investors of late. Despite its recent price bounce, the Footsie mining giant still seems to offer plenty of value on paper. In addition to a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11.5 times the FTSE 100 firm carries an inflation-mashing 5.5% dividend yield, too.I’m not tempted to dip buy BHP’s shares however, given the murky price outlook for many of its commodities. Take iron ore, for example, its single most important product. Supply disruptions in Brazil have helped prices of late, but global production threatens to balloon during the 2020s as new mines come on-stream and expansion projects start firing and drag values lower.Questions over future steel demand — covering everything from the economic impact of Covid-19 to limp Chinese infrastructure spending in recent years — provide a further reason for investors to swerve BHP shares. I for one won’t be investing any time soon.Boring but brilliantI’d be much happier to invest my hard-earned cash in National Grid (LSE: NG). Its operations might be boring, but this is what makes it such an excellent pick for dividend chasers. Electricity demand never tends to fluctuate that much, a quality that gives the Footsie-quoted power network operator the confidence to pay above-average dividends each and every year.It’s a quality that can’t be underestimated at the current time, naturally, given the shocking storm that’s battering the world economy. When lots of other shares are cutting their dividends, National Grid is likely to keep on raising them. What’s more, the firm has plenty of financial wiggle room to continue throwing big shareholder payments out. It currently has £5.5bn of undrawn committed bank facilities to draw upon.Right now the FTSE 100 share trades on a forward P/E ratio of 15 times and carries a chunky 5.5% dividend yield. I reckon it’s a top income share to own in these uncertain times.Another FTSE 100 firecrackerI also reckon buying Polymetal International is a wise idea today. First off the gold producer carries a mighty dividend yield close to 5.5%. It also trades on a rock-bottom P/E multiple of 10 times for 2020.But let’s look past these great near-term numbers for a second. It’s possible that this FTSE 100 stock could be one of the index’s best performers of the next decade. Why? A combination of unparalleled macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty, allied with constant money pumping by central banks, suggests that gold prices could explode in the coming years. And by extension, profits at Polymetal could shoot through the roof. See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

This house is more than a weekend cottage. This house is an experiment. You approach it via a cul-de-sac that ends in a sheep fence towards the open moor. There is a grove of high junipers and a couple of white plastered houses visible. Embedded in a glade 5 meters to the right lies Juniper House. The house is barely visible, like a mirror of its own surroundings.Save this picture!© Göran UhlinJuniper house is thought to be experienced as the glade it stands in. The project started with measuring all junipers on the site. The house is placed so you have junipers just a foot from the façade. The original glade was crossed by a natural path through the house to the moor.Save this picture!Floor PlanA wall of glass from ceiling to floor stands towards the minimal yard. From the interior you have a strong feeling of being in the nature. Both light and the path “flow” through the house and a terrace of white local limestone separates the kitchen from the master bedroom.Save this picture!© Åke E-son LindmanThanks to the glass partitions and the white interior walls the small court yard is experienced as a part of the inside. From the master bedroom there is a lot of sky visible, due to the significantly sized glass partitions, and through the low placed window you can se wild rabbits in the morning. There is only a curtain separating the bedroom from the rest of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Hans MurmanSave this picture!ElevationThe centrally placed kitchen works as a living room. The wide sliding doors towards the terrace and the enclosed yard make it possible to have good contact with the nature during all types of weather. The sliding glass partitions also works as a temperature regulator while minimising draught problems.All the members of the big family have summer cottages in the neighbourhood and close contact with the family was crucial, but there was also a need of a private zone.Save this picture!© Åke E-son LindmanTowards the lawn and the other family members lies the afternoon sun terrace. The platform acts as a bridge towards the rest of the family and is also a half-private zone. Towards east facing the morning sun for breakfast you have the private breakfast zone.Save this picture!© Åke E-son LindmanThe façade is a playful comment to the Gotland authority’s ambition to not let modern architecture be visual in the landscape. It is also an experiment and investigation in what you see and do not see of a house and how this affects you and how you experience colour, texture, surface, material, transparency, inside contra outside light on and through the façades.Save this picture!© Åke E-son LindmanThe slow growing junipers that enclose the house are green throughout the whole year. A photo of the existing junipers was used as the base for the tailor-made cloth that is 35 metres wide and 3 meters high and wrapped onto tree sides of the house The netvinyl cloth is put on a galvanized steel construction at a distance of 40 centimetres from the façade. On the north and south side of the house the cloth is extended a few extra meters for privacy and to hide the outdoor shower from the neighbours. The wooden facade is treated with a combination of turpentine, tar and linseed oil.Save this picture!ElevationThe sliding glass parts are clad with aluminium from Velfac and full aluminium from Scücho. The large glass partitions is insulated in the same plane as the façade elements fixed to the angled profiles made of aluminium.Save this picture!Courtesy of Hans MurmanThe floor is ash, oiled with white pigment. The walls and the ceiling are painted white and for the kitchen we have used a concrete board from a local factory in Boge, Gotland. The other parts of the kitchen are from IKEA. The wood burning stove is a model from the early 20th century, and is only 30 centimetres wide and is the only heat source in the kitchen. The sofa is our own design and the central table is made of massive ash assembled on a drawing board stand. The chairs are the classic Y-chair designed by Hans Wegner in 1950.Save this picture!© Åke E-son LindmanThe walls are isolated with 120 mm mineral wool. The ground is a concrete plate.

Buenos Aires police fire on journalists, city official plays down incident

first_img July 6, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the use of excessive violence by the Buenos Aires metropolitan police against journalists covering a demonstration by hospital employees on 26 April.The organization also deplores the city public security minister’s comments about the violence and calls for appropriate disciplinary measures against all the officials who were responsible. At least 50 people including many journalists were injured when the police fired on the crowd outside José T. Borda Hospital with rubber bullets. The police also charged reporters.The injured journalists included Clarín photographer José “Pepe” Mateos, La Nación photographer Ricardo Pristupluk, Crónica photographer Pablo Villán, CN23 reporter Paula Avellaneda, FM La Tribu reporter Patricio Tejedor, En Movimiento TV camerawoman Belén Revollo, Canal A24 reporter Soledad Larghi, Canal 13 TodoNoticias cameraman Carlos Torres, reporter Gabriel Eiriz, cameraman Leonardo Piccone and Télam news agency photographer Daniel Dabove.C5N cameramen Mario Ricci and Mario Gavilán, Crónica TV cameraman Fabián Alasi, Alberto Samudio and Sebastián Vázquez (Telefé) also suffered at the hands of the police.“Four policemen rushed at me, threw me to the ground and kneeled hard on my back, pressing my ribs down on my camera,” Mateos told Reporters Without Borders.Commenting on the violence, Buenos Aires city public security minister Guillermo Montenegro said the journalists were “not used to the police taking action.” He added: “Many of them were at the spot where the incidents were taking place.”“How can you blame journalists for being close to the events they were covering, in order to do their job better?” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must not be allowed to wriggle out of their responsibility for the violence. An investigtion must be ordered in order to shed light on all aspects of what took place.”This is not the first time this year that journalists have been victims of violence by the metropolitan police. TV Pública reporter Julieta Elgul and Canal 26 cameraman Cristian D’Amico were injured by police while covering a demonstration in the city’s Centennial Park on 30 January.Reporters Without Borders urges Buenos Aires mayor Mauricio Macri and the metropolitan police to respect the neutrality and physical integrity of media personnel and to follow the recommendations on promoting and protecting human rights during peaceful demonstrations that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights included in her annual report on 21 January (see below).
