Image source: Getty Images. Forget the Cash ISA! I’m buying the Shell share price in 2020center_img 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. Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Royal Dutch Shell. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) share price really stands out as a blue-chip income stock.The company has paid a dividend every year since the second world war and as a result, is considered to be one of the most trustworthy dividend stocks in the FTSE 100.5G 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…However, the group is currently experiencing a turbulent period. Volatile oil prices coupled with environmental concerns have weighed on the stock. The Shell share price currently trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 11.3. This suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety at current levels.Overcome challengesShell’s future depends on the company’s ability to be able to overcome the challenges facing the business.Historically, the company has coped quite well with whatever the market has thrown at it. In 2014, when the price of oil collapsed, management acted without delay to slash costs and reposition the business for the new environment.The firm has continued to follow this approach since, which has helped its bottom line immensely. While the company’s results fell year-on-year for the three months to September, it still beat expectations.The group reported earnings of $4.8bn on a current cost of supply basis — the measure tracked most closely by analysts — whereas analysts were calling for income of $3.9bn. Better energy trading results helped Shell smash expectations.Management has said that the company requires oil prices to be above $66 a barrel in 2020 to meet its debt reduction targets and maintain its share repurchase activity. So far, the oil price has not reached this level, but rising geopolitical tensions could see it return to $66 soon.Actions by the world’s largest oil producers to try to reduce production to force prices higher have also had an impact on prices over the past few weeks. This suggests producers will be proactive in keeping prices up throughout the rest of 2020.Renewable energyShell is also making progress in its transition towards renewable energy. The firm has invested billions of dollars over the past 24 months, and management has earmarked billions more for the next few years. These actions imply that Shell isn’t going to stand still as the world changes.As such, it could be a good time for long-term investors to take advantage of the current value on offer with the Shell share price. Not only does the stock’s valuation offer a wide margin of safety, but the share price also supports a market-leading dividend yield of 6.2%, which is covered 1.2 times by earnings per share.Rising oil prices in 2020 could help turbocharge the company’s performance and put its debt reduction plans back on track. Therefore, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business for the long run and pick up that 6.2% dividend yield while you wait.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Berkshire Hathaway leader Warren Buffett is well-known for amassing  a fortune thanks to his investing and management prowess. But Buffett is also generous in sharing his wisdom, which can be a boon to investors. Here are five investing lessons I’ve learned from Buffett.Quality is worth paying forBuffett started with what he calls “cigar butt” investing – buying companies that look cheap and might have just one good puff left in them before they decline. That is a form of value investing and it can be attractive, because buying something for less than it is worth often seems attractive.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…Buffett points out that it is worth paying more to get a quality business that can keep growing profits into the future. That is one reason I like Unilever – no matter what happens in the short term, its broad-based brand portfolio should enable it to prosper for decades to come.Warren Buffett sticks to what he knowsBuffett missed out on some amazing tech stocks. But he also missed out on lots of terrible ones. That is because he avoided the sector for decades, saying he didn’t understand it. Buffett talks about the value of staying inside one’s area of knowledge. That sounds obvious, but a lot of investors chase hot stocks with no real ability to assess their likely returns.That is why I avoid lithium stocks like Bacanora – I just don’t feel qualified enough yet to judge the relative merits of different lithium projects. By contrast, I understand the market for domestic gas and feel comfortable picking a company with exposure to it, such as DCC.Cash generation is the name of the gameIf one looks at the businesses in which Buffett invests, a consistent theme is that they tend to be fairly cash generative. That means they often don’t need large amounts of capital, although some Buffett investments like railways are capital intensive. But they throw off huge amounts of cash, which makes them attractive investments.Free cash flow is a key metric I consider when looking at a stock. It gives a good indication of whether a company is actually getting money in the door. That’s one reason I like highly cash generative businesses like British American Tobacco. It’s important to remember, though, that historic cash generation might not be replicated in future.Focus on businesses not managementWhile Warren Buffett praises individual managers, his position is actually not to focus on management quality alone. He suggests investing in businesses that would be successful even if run by idiots. That makes sense to me, because no management lasts forever.Instead, I like to choose businesses which have fundamental strength I judge likely to endure. For example, Howden Joinery is a well-run business. But even it wasn’t, its network of trade counters gives it a strong commercial position, which I expect to continue. After a recent recovery, though, its share price is less attractive to me than it was.Buffett cuts his lossesWhen things turned bad at Tesco several years ago, Buffett didn’t wait to see if they would get better again. Instead, he cut and run – with a big loss. That can be hard to do but as Buffett says, there is rarely only one cockroach in a kitchen.

  • Paul O’Connell backs Owen Farrell as Lions captain

    first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “But it’s probably a bit of a challenge for him now going from the Six Nations to not having a lot of class rugby. England’s form isn’t a good thing, but it gives him perspective on how hard it is to get it right.”Addressing the other captaincy contenders, O’Connell also said: “If Alun Wyn Jones isn’t captain, he doesn’t change how he behaves. He’s still the same character.“He’s another standout candidate, but you just wonder sometimes if a guy who has captained an awful lot and who didn’t have an awful lot of games coming into a fantastic Six Nations, if it would be good for him not to be captain for once.“He’d be able to concentrate on his own game and support someone like a Farrell.“I’d love to see Maro playing great rugby. He’s already a line-out caller. Alun Wyn captains Wales but doesn’t call the line-out, it’s a stress they take away from him which allows him to do his job better. You might think the same of Maro Itoje.” Can’t get to the shops?

Paul O’Connell backs Owen Farrell as Lions captainCaptain of the 2009 British & Irish Lions tour, Paul O’Connell knows a thing or two about playing the South Africans. And so when he talks about leadership contenders for the 2021 trip, it makes sense to listen. But since every Lions captain to play the Springboks since 1974 has been a second-row, not many will have expected him to name a back as a favourite for skipper.“I like Owen Farrell. He’s a real standout leader for me,” O’Connell told PA this week. “With matches being played without crowds, you can hear so much of what the players are saying during games. You can hear Owen barking at his own players and encouraging them. A lot of it is about getting off the line and the physical side of the game, but a lot of it is also coaching people into position as well.“He’s pretty experienced, he’s been on two tours already and he has a big leadership role with England. It wouldn’t be unfamiliar territory for him.“There are plenty of guys who could do the job, but for me in terms of experience and an appetite to lead, he’s the real standout.“When you pick a captain or leaders for the Lions tour, it’s about picking guys who are willing to take ownership of what the plan is. Owen is a guy who enjoys leading and enjoys taking ownership. He’s almost coaching.”Alun Wyn Jones for the Lions against New Zealand, 2017 (Getty Images)As it stands, Wales hero Alun Wyn Jones is the favourite to be named captain, with  Farrell, Maro Itoje, Stuart Hogg and Ken Owens other names being thrown around. But with England’s Six Nations results so poor, and with Saracens playing in the Championship this season, some have raised concerns over the form of frontline England stars. But O’Connell backs Owen Farrell despite this.“As a team England didn’t play as well as they’d have liked in the Six Nations,” O’Connell said. “Is that a reflection on Owen Farrell? I don’t really think so.center_img The former Lions skipper picks out the England captain for leadership role O’Connell tries to block Farrell in 2014 (Getty Images) last_img read more

Church volunteers have now helped distribute thousands of boxes of food, and more are expected if the federal program is extended this fall.“It’s not a small initiative,” Bishop Thomas Brown told Episcopal News Service. The feeding ministry involves “major systems, companies, agencies, people coming together to do a lot of good.”It all started with a glut of Maine potatoes, said John Hennessy, the diocese’s director of advocacy and networks.In the spring, diocesan officials learned from a parishioner that northern farmers were suffering from processors’ reduced demand for potatoes. About 65% of Maine’s potatoes are processed, according to the Portland Press Herald, meaning they end up as french fries, potato chips and other fast-food items sold at restaurants and ballparks. When those businesses closed or cut back due to the coronavirus, the farmers were willing to sell the potatoes at a loss.Initially, the diocese raised about $3,000 in donations to buy 30,000 pounds of potatoes – “almost a tractor trailer full,” Hennessy said – and Episcopal officials contacted food pantries in the more populated communities in southern Maine to receive them.Those initial connections established the structure for a more robust feeding ministry through the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Since April, the program has provided “direct relief to producers who faced price declines and additional marketing costs due to COVID-19,” according to the department, and about $3 billion of that relief is being distributed through its Farmers to Families Food Box Program.The family-sized food boxes are filled by food producers, who are reimbursed by the federal government. The boxes are distributed by the farmers’ community partners, such as food pantries, faith-based organizations and other charity groups. The Episcopal diocese is among the participating organizations in Maine.“None of this was costing the diocese any money,” Hennessy said, only the time and effort to coordinate distribution and line up volunteers.Each food box has contained about 18 pounds of Maine farm products: 5 pounds of raw potatoes and 6 pounds of frozen mashed potatoes, as well as 3 pounds of cheese and a half gallon of milk, Hennessy said. The diocese arranged for delivery locations, such as the parking lots of municipal buildings, and the boxes arrived in refrigerated trucks. The distribution events were advertised locally, and residents interested in receiving the food could pull up and have volunteers place the food boxes in their car trunks.It has been welcome assistance at a time when Maine’s unemployment rate is at nearly 10% and tens of thousands of workers in the state are receiving jobless benefits.“Many families in the greater Biddeford area are continuing to face food insecurity and other economic challenges associated with COVID-19,” Biddeford Mayor Alan Casavant told News Center Maine after a July distribution in his coastal community, just south of Portland. “Thanks to this program, many more York County residents in need will have a simple way to access fresh, locally grown food.”Hennessy estimates the diocese has helped distribute about 4,500 such boxes to people since July, and last week, an additional 800 boxes filled with fruits and vegetables were distributed separately.The diocese’s effort follows other ministries connecting food producers with food consumers in need. St. Francis by the Sea Episcopal Church in Blue Hill, for example, began this year organizing a bulk lobster buy so parishioners could purchase lobster and support a local lobsterman.The diocese’s current round of food box distribution has wrapped up, Hennessy said, but he anticipates it will resume in the fall.The diocese also has money remaining from its fundraiser for the initial potato purchase. It hopes to create a long-term anti-hunger program in the state, when the federal money eventually runs out for good.“There will always be a need for neighbors to be helping neighbors,” Brown said, “and the more that The Episcopal Church in Maine can be known as a community of followers of Jesus who are committed to helping one another, it seems the more faithful we will be.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

A couple with property on a cove overlooking the ocean asked for a house that would be comfortable for just the two of them the majority of the time. However, with their love of entertaining, the house had to grow on busy weekends to accommodate their children, grandchildren, and guests. To instill the desired sense of comfort and peace, it was also important that the design blend with the pastoral setting and vernacular building traditions: predominantly shingle style homes and barns that are often built and added to over time. Historic precedent studies revealed that referencing New England connected farms in an innovative way could achieve both goals.Save this picture!Courtesy of Bates Masi ArchitectsConnected farms aggregated over time, interconnecting multiple buildings with distinct uses. The architectural style of the house was applied to subsequent buildings to unify the assembly, but partitions within provided the necessary separation between uses: house to kitchen, kitchen to shop, and shop to barn for instance. One volume was often offset or rotated from the next to provide greater access to light, air, and privacy from the other functions. Following that example, the program of this house is divided into owners’ bedroom and office, eat-in kitchen and family room, formal living and dining, and guest rooms. The spaces are arranged around a courtyard to create visual and physical connections between them but those connections can be broken by large sliding doors. Each structure has an independent mechanical system allowing it to be shut down when unoccupied. This allows the livability of the house to expand and contract whether the couple is alone, hosting dinner guests, or has a full house of overnight guests.Save this picture!Courtesy of Bates Masi ArchitectsAs with connected farms, a limited palette of materials and details unifies the various spaces and responds to the local climate. The cedar shingles common to local buildings are scaled up to the size of boards to cover the roof and sidewalls. Cedar screens provide privacy and filter light. A limestone plinth filled with sand elevates the house above the floodplain while also creating drywells to accept storm water runoff. Oak floors and millwork throughout unify the spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Bates Masi ArchitectsThe design repurposes the historic typology of the connected farm to suit the very timely needs of the site and the family. By acknowledging the area’s history and tradition of building, this home is an evolution of its cultural expression.Save this picture!Courtesy of Bates Masi ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessMorumbi Corporate / Aflalo/Gasperini ArquitetosSelected ProjectsMorphosis Releases Details of Competition-Winning Scheme for Unicorn Island Masterpl…Architecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

The access to the house is produced in the centre, leaving the bedrooms on one side and the living room, dining room and gallery to the other.

Concrete is used to materialize the main skeleton of the construction. Because of its plasticity and movement the imprint of the facade is generated in a central point.

  • “Stealth dorm” registration complete

    first_imgReddIt printThe overlay district for the neighborhoods surrounding TCU is locked in now that the registration period for exemptions to the new zoning restrictions has passed.The neighborhoods surrounding TCU have 649 registered homes that can be leased by up to five unrelated people, according to the city.The registration period, set when the TCU overlay district was created last year, ended March 31. Under the special zoning restriction, property owners who are not registered with the city can rent to no more than three unrelated people.The overlay district was proposed last summer after neighbors complained that “stealth dorms” housing up to five unrelated students were threatening the character of their communities.The exemption was created to accommodate existing property owners who were already leasing their properties to multiple students.TCU student body president-elect, Maddie Reddick, attended a meeting with the mayor, two council members and multiple landlords. She said the student voice was not being represented at the meetings.There were many concerns from students about rising rent prices and moving farther away from campus, so Reddick and other members of student congress began a petition against the overlay that generated over 1,000 signatures.They gathered student anecdotes, passed a resolution in favor of a grandfathering compromise, and invited city council members to campus.Reddick and senior Alex Cohen, Speaker of the House, represented the students’ zoning commission at city council meetings and mediation meetings between the city, neighbors, landlords, the TCU administration and students.After two months of mediation, they agreed to allow existing homes to continue to be leased to up to five unrelated people as long the property owner registered them. No additional homes can be built for this purpose.“We were very excited by this compromise, which served the interests of the students and all interested parties,” said Reddick.In response to neighbor’s concerns about student behavior, Cohen and Reddick passed a resolution in support of a Good Neighbor program for better relations between TCU students and the community.Sierra Tuthill is the zoning reporter for The 109.

  • Mélenchon’s ever-growing guerrilla war against the media

    first_img After frequent anti-media insults and rhetoric in the past, “France Unbowed” leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon has taken his guerrilla war against journalists to a new level, urging his supporters to “give them hell.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) regards his comments as irresponsible and dangerous. to go further News October 23, 2018 Mélenchon’s ever-growing guerrilla war against the media Receive email alerts ALAIN JOCARD / AFP June 4, 2021 Find out more News FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 2, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News FranceEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on France Help by sharing this information News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Organisation May 10, 2021 Find out more RSF_en The evolution in Mélenchon’s comments about or against the media reflect a steady growth in hostility and vengefulness. He used insults during the presidential campaign in March 2017, describing a France 5 reporter as a “dirty bastard” and a “dog” and referring to France 2 as the “enemy.” Last December, he called for a “professional tribunal” to deal with “liars, cheats and swindlers” in the media.Now he has passed from insults to anti-journalist proselytism, describing hatred for journalists in a blog post as “healthy and fair.” He has also described the media as “the first enemy of free speech,” claiming that “the media party (…) injects drugs into people’s brains” and concluding that “media power is above all conspiratorial.”Mélenchon is now very clearly urging his followers to take action against journalists. “Give them hell wherever you can, because we must get at least some result,” he wrote in a Facebook post on 19 October. “We need in the end to have thousands of people saying that ‘the France Info journalists are liars and cheats,’” he added.“We have on several occasion in the past had to condemn Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s irresponsible comments about journalists,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We now put this question to him: What will you say the next time, given your tendency to always keep taking your hatred against journalists to another level? How are you going keep advancing in your anti-journalist guerrilla war? If the simple-minded are inspired by your comments to carry out acts of violence, you will be held responsible.”The tactic employed by Mélenchon, who ran for president in 2017, is a frontal counter-attack whenever he feels he is being wrong-footed by journalists. Neither new nor completely improvised, his methods are toxic and dangerous.France is ranked 33rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.last_img read more
