Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The worst of the stock market crash may now be over, but the FTSE 100 is still down by 20% so far this year. Now that lockdown conditions are easing in and businesses are reopening, I think it’s a good time to start looking for cheap FTSE 100 shares to buy.Although many businesses are likely to experience tough trading conditions over the next 12 months, I think the FTSE offers some good buying opportunities at current levels.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…Shouldn’t we wait until things improve?Given the uncertain outlook for many companies, you might decide it’s safer to wait until conditions improve before investing.The problem with this is that as business performance recovers, stock market valuations will probably rise. US billionaire Warren Buffett once said investors should remember that “the future is never clear; you pay a very high price in the stock market for a cheery consensus”. Mr Buffett’s preferred approach is to invest when he thinks companies are trading below their long-term value. This provides a useful margin of safety that can help protect you from losses if things don’t go as well as you hope.Are FTSE 100 shares cheap today?The simplest way to buy FTSE 100 shares it to invest in a tracker fund. By investing in the fund, you own a slice of every business in the index.The FTSE 100 is trading on about 13 times earnings at the moment, which I think looks quite affordable. The official FT figures show the index offering a dividend yield of 5%, which also looks very attractive. However, we’ve seen a lot of big dividend cuts this year. I think the final yield is likely to be lower. My sums suggest a figure somewhere between 3% and 4%.I’d be happy to buy a FTSE 100 tracker fund at current levels. The only real problem with this approach is that you have to own every company in the FTSE 100.This means that you end up with a portfolio that’s heavily weighted towards mining, oil and financial stocks. This isn’t ideal, in my view — I want more exposure to faster-growing businesses, such as consumer goods, tech and pharma.The simplest way to achieve this is to buy individual FTSE 100 shares, rather than a tracker fund.Which FTSE 100 shares should you buy?Everyone’s needs are different, but if you’re investing in FTSE 100 stocks then I think it’s fair to assume that you’re looking for dividend income as well as long-term gains.This year has shown us the dangers of buying shares with very high dividend yields, as they’re often more likely to be cut. For new buyers today, I think it makes sense to focus on companies with yields that are well covered by earnings and haven’t been cut in the market crash.In my view, good choices for new investors might include Unilever (3.8% yield), National Grid (5.7% yield) and pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (4.8% yield). Telecoms group Vodafone offers a 6% payout which looks fairly safe to me, while tobacco investors can earn 7% from British American Tobacco.I reckon that owning companies like these in a long-term stocks portfolio is the safest and easiest way to build wealth and retire early. It’s what I’m doing. I think it could work for you too. See all posts by Roland Head read more

La Chaya is located on a vast plot of land in one of the areas with the greatest amount of economic and commercial growth in the city of Merida, Yucatan. During the past decade, the place has suffered like all cities with growing real estate, and excessive, uncontrolled growth. The result is urban and demographic expansion, and an emerging city without a contemporary identity, holding on to an outdated design methodology.Save this picture!© David CerveraGoing back to urban values as a space for development of new interventions and using existing buildings as reference, we weave a web of social, urban and cultural connections into a living city.Save this picture!© David CerveraLa Chaya is based on Architectural Provocation as a strategy to become a benchmark that opens to dialogue and interaction with contemporary public space.Save this picture!© David CerveraThe challenge is embodied in a building that responds to the state of emergency and correct life span by using a material such as “craft-tech dress”, housing program and sensations which are enhanced in their dynamic spaces and their continuous formal communication in each of them.Save this picture!Ground FloorThe subtle but commanding entrance generates a dimension of anticipation and surprise throughout the building and in the transition from one area to another, where the interior responds to the doubt created by the material on the outside and its changing layout through dynamic openings allowing interior-exterior dialogue.Save this picture!© David CerveraThe building creates a dialogue with itself due to its layout, where somewhat poetically, the shadows it generates are in continual relation and contact with the sun path. The rooms are arranged with a spatial rupture or internal filter, markedly separating private spaces from shared ones. Activities take place in both indoor areas and outdoor terraces and gardens, just as the vegetable garden located on an outside terrace upstairs encourages family life and adds educational and nutritional value.Save this picture!© David CerveraThe enclosure is rooted through its “artisanal-tech dress” driven by the use of a common material, possibly lacking functional versatility and labeled as heavy duty, “the concrete block”, which, while supported in technology and data that become communicators, allows the evolution of the technique to find tangible and measurable results in the comfort of the building and its formal aspects.Save this picture!Section 3An advanced technique produced by a simple process results in a new “protective skin” that acts as a sunscreen influencing the interior space and aesthetically provoking the city by the kindness and transparency of its features, enhanced by their modulation.

The architectural objective was to achieve the maximal optimization of land which is 200 square metres (2,152 square feet), which would promote cohabitation as a family and at the same time, offer intimate spaces with the privacy required for each of the family’s daily activities, taking care of the relationship with the exterior, so the privacy character is achieved.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaThe aim was to create an interior space that would articulate the whole house and where family coexistence would develop. This was solved by a longitudinal dynamic space that goes from the street to an interior courtyard.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe interior patio is the most intimate space of the house. Since privacy is a very important element, several resources were used; In the inner courtyard the walls were raised to double height and on the other side, on the street façade, a filter was created by means of a terrace where a latticework with white concrete elements was placed, like a kind of mask, which tricks the views from the street, but keeps a subtle communication from the inside. The latticework is placed on the entire front of the house giving character to the north façade while accentuating the abstraction of the volume.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaIn the patio, an abundant gardening was proposed as a visual finishing and element of buffering to the great walls that delimit it.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaSince a total integration of the interior space with the exterior was pursued, door-windows were created that hide over the walls, managing to merge the spaces completely. Something important to achieve was: “see raining without getting wet” for which cornices and pergolas were arranged that allow to have the doors open while it rains.Save this picture!Elevation / SectionOn the second floor there are two spacious bedrooms, with bathrooms and closets. In the bathrooms, great natural lighting was sought, as well as privacy. On the third floor there is a study, which is a more private space, separated from the family hustle and bustle, which can be converted into an occasional bedroom since it has a bathroom. In this one, a feeling of integration with the outside was sought, but maintaining its privacy, for which a courtyard bordered by latticework was arranged, repeating the pattern of the main latticework. Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaThe roofs become livable spaces applying the concept of interior-exterior integration, as well as “see raining without getting wet”, for which two pergolas made of steel, wood and glass were laid out, of which its structure is evident.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaThe study is oriented towards the pleasant views created by the large trees of the neighboring park.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaThe urban sights were intentionally avoided. The space is delimited by a system of beams and walls, which frames the views and forms a more coherent and homogeneous exterior volumetry, enhancing the abstraction of the volumes.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaThe last roof becomes a viewpoint where you can admire the sight of the volcanoes on the valley. This space is accessed by a metal spiral staircase, also of exposed structure, with a strong chromatic treatment, giving it a sculptural plastic character.Save this picture!© Eduardo Ramírez UrreaProject gallerySee allShow lessStudio Fuksas Releases Images of Competition-Winning Double-Ellipse Tower in SloveniaArchitecture NewsMa Yansong: “Some People May Say My Work Is Futuristic, But I See It as Traditional”Interviews Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/891536/tano-house-eduardo-ramirez-urrea Clipboard ArchDaily Mexico “COPY” CopyHouses•Puebla City, Mexico Architects: Eduardo Ramírez Urrea Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: Photographs Projects CopyAbout this officeEduardo Ramírez UrreaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPuebla CityMexicoPublished on March 30, 2018Cite: “TANO House / Eduardo Ramírez Urrea” [Casa TANO / Eduardo Ramírez Urrea] 30 Mar 2018.

Campaign group launches to push for fairer recruitment practices SEE ALSO: Tagged with: campaigning Law / policy recruitment AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 The group told UK Fundraising:“Many fundraisers have been tirelessly drawing attention to this issue in recent months but we wanted to take some of that burden, give the campaign focus and also create a website that can help others to drive conversations forward.“We’ll be calling out those advertisers who are clinging to salary secrecy and therefore perpetuating pay gaps and inequity and doing all we can to make them scrap this discriminatory practice. We’ll be collating resources so people can see the impact of salary secrecy themselves – and use them to challenge their own assumptions, their employers and their recruitment agencies. And we’ll be asking agencies (and we hope charities and fundraisers) to pledge to always #ShowTheSalary so fundraisers know where to look if they want to use an agency that shares their values.”Alongside transparency over salaries, Show the Salary is challenging other practices that it believes are outdated, such as asking current or previous salary and requesting a degree when it is not necessary.The group added:“We want everyone working in the sector to receive a fair wage. And we don’t think that’s too much to ask. But, sadly, that can’t happen until we end salary secrecy in job ads and so that’s where we’re focusing first. We’re also calling on charities and agencies to stop asking for current/previous salary as this leaves people stuck in a cycle of unfair pay. And we fully support the brilliant #NonGraduatesWelcome campaign too. Once we’ve got these basics in place, we can then move onto the next steps around fairer recruitment.”It has also created a website, where it will list those that take the pledge and which also includes links to resources and articles that can be used to challenge assumptions and practices.More info here on why salary secrecy is a discriminatory practice here: https://t.co/lpVp37IkclAnd we’re happy to chat if helpful, just let us know who’s best to speak with.— Show The Salary (@ShowTheSalary) September 3, 2020And – it has already had some success, with British Red Cross yesterday (3 September) updating a job description it had challenged with salary details. And THIS is how you do it.HUGE kudos to @BritishRedCross: action taken within a matter of hours, an honest and open response. And problem solved.This is how quick it can be. We’ll be expecting others to follow suit and, obviously, to always #ShowTheSalary in future. https://t.co/xjdg3DmDvp— Show The Salary (@ShowTheSalary) September 3, 2020 A group has launched to campaign for fairer recruitment practices in the charity sector.Show the Salary has been formed following increasing online campaigning in recent weeks for charities to address the issue of pay gaps and inequity. It is focusing first on salary secrecy, and is calling for charities and recruitment agencies to stop advertising roles without listing the pay.Those behind the group are all paid staff in the charity sector who wish to remain anonymous at this stage.It is asking charities and recruitment agencies to take a pledge to always Show The Salary. And, anyone who sees jobs advertised without a salary is invited to share it with the group or to tag them on Twitter so they can take it up with the advertiser.Hi @RamblersGB ?Your CEO vacancy looks great, but why the “undisclosed” salary when salary secrecy’s known to perpetuate pay gaps? With some basic detective work it seems to be ~£67k-£80k.

Sara Flounders of the United National Antiwar Coalition.Oct. 18 — Today, representatives of the International Committee of the National Lawyers Guild and anti-war organizations held a news conference at the Solidarity Center in New York City. They called President Donald Trump’s threats against north Korea — which he made at the United Nations in September — a criminal act not only by international law, but by U.S. law.Jeanne Mirer, co-chair of the NLG International Committee and president of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL), quoted the United Nations charter, noting, “all nations are required to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state or in any manner inconsistent with the Charter.” Mirer said that the U.S. Senate had approved the U.N. Charter by a 89-2 vote, thus making it U.S. law.The Rev. Tong-Kyun Kim of the Least of These Church [The Korean Progressive Church], urged the U.S. to “take the path to dialog and peace,” and “stop all war provocations.” He said the U.S.’s refusal to “give up its hostile policy” toward north Korea was the root cause of the ongoing tensions.Sara Flounders of the United National Antiwar Coalition said, “the permanent state of war” that the U.S. had imposed on the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea since 1950, the “occupation of the south” and the “militarized massive war games” the U.S. held on and near the Korean peninsula were the causes of the danger.Bernadette Ellorin of the International League of Peoples Struggles expressed her organization’s “solidarity with the DPRK and the Korean people in asserting their national sovereignty.” She said that country’s nuclear program was “self-defense against U.S. aggression to keep from being an easy target, such as the U.S. found in Iraq, Syria and Libya.”Christian Cobb of the International Action Center said his organization “stands with the DPRK” and against “President Donald Trump’s call for genocide.”Jackelyn Mariano, co-chair of the NLG International Committee, introduced and moderated the event.Anti-war actions set for early NovemberIn reply to a question from this Workers World reporter, the groups discussed anti-war actions that are set to take place in different countries in early November to coincide with Trump’s trip to Asia. On Nov. 4, people in south Korea will protest Trump’s visit and the military buildup in the region. Philippine organizations are planning a mass protest a few days later when the U.S. president participates in a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), at the site of the former Clark Air Force Base near Manila.The organizations at the news conference said they would coordinate their actions in the U.S. in solidarity with the Asian-Pacific protests during that time period. Organizers also distributed pieces written by Marjorie Cohn, former president of the NLG and IADL deputy secretary-general, including an article entitled, “Trump Threatens Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity in North Korea.” (Read at Truth-out, Sept. 29)A video of the news conference is available at https://youtu.be/tLB8TvLj8Tw.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

The No. 2 pair, Amy Neal and Jaelyn Green, earned the team’s first point with a 15-12 win in the third set. The No. 3 pair of Avery Arellano and Jillian Bergeson came back from a 9-21 loss to win their decisive set 15-13.The match fell on the shoulders of Haven Hill and Molly Scheel on court one, but Arizona State took the final set 16-14 and the team won 3-2.In the team’s second matchup of the day, Neal and Green snagged another three-set win alongside the No. 4, Ariah Palter and Sarita Mikals, to give TCU a 2-0 lead against LSU. The Tigers fought back in the next three pair-meetings. The two stole the win from TCU, 3-2, with all straight set victories.The Frogs’ last home battle was against the Wildcats. Palter and Mikals competed back-and-forth in a deciding set, but gave up their match 15-13. The No. 5 pair of Shane Peters and Claire Doyle claimed their first win of the weekend, in straight sets 21-19, 21-19, but it wasn’t good enough. TCU fell to Arizona 4-1.“I think we did a great job competing with these teams,” senior Amy Neal said. “We just need to focus on not letting up and making unforced errors at the end.”Gutierrez said the mental game is what the team needs to work on in order to pull out the close matches.“It’s not a matter of skills, they just need to believe they can do it,” Gutierrez said.The team is back in action at the Irvine Valley College Tournament in Irvine, California on Sunday. The Frogs are set to face Irvine Valley College, No. 5 Hawaii and No. 19 Stanford.“We have nothing to lose and a lot to learn,” Gutierrez said. “We put all of these matches on the schedule because we need to compete as much as possible.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin Photo by Haley Harrison.

Reporters Without Borders today condemned the lack of results in the investigation into the disappearance exactly one year ago of reporter Alfredo Jiménez Mota of the daily El Imparcial in Hermosillo in the northwestern state of Sonora, despite the involvement of the federal authorities.“Despite President Vicente Fox’s repeated promises, the investigators have not come up with any additional clues about Jiménez’s disappearance, which was clearly linked to his work as a journalist,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call for the new special prosecutor’s office in charge of cases involving attacks on the press to be given all the resources its needs to solve this case, which like so many others, bears the seal of impunity.”According to the staff at El Imparcial, Jiménez sounded nervous when he phoned a colleague at around 9 p.m. on 2 April 2005 to say he had to go and meet one of his contacts. He said the meeting would be short and that he would join his colleague afterwards. That was the last anyone heard of him.Jiménez was known for conducting risky investigations into crime and drug trafficking which exposed him to all kinds of reprisals.His disappearance marked the start of a black week for the Mexican press, which has seen little improvement since then. Three days after Jiménez’s disappearance, Guadalupe Garcia Escamilla of radio Estéreo 91 XHNOE in Nuevo Laredo in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas was shot outside the station on 5 April 2005 and died 11 days later from her injuries.And three days after that, on 8 April 2005, Raúl Gibb Guerrero, the editor of the daily La Opinión, was murdered in Papantla in the eastern state of Veracruz. The leading suspect, Martín Rojas, the alleged head of a Veracruz gasoline smuggling ring, was arrested on 4 July in the United States but has not yet been extradited.As a result of this surge in violence against journalists, the federal justice ministry created a special prosecutor’s office for such cases on 15 February. Two more journalists have been killed in connection with their work so far this year.
