In times of volatility and fear in the stock market, it is natural for investors to look for growth potential and bargains to invest in. However another strategy that can take advantage of low prices is looking for great dividend shares.As dividends are paid out in pence per share, the dividend yield measurement we use as a benchmark is dependent on the share price itself. If a company is maintaining its dividend while its share price goes down, you get a higher percentage return on your investment.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…Long-term vs. short-term troublesA key caveat with this strategy is that companies sometimes maintain or even increase dividends beyond levels they should. This is usually to hold onto or attract investors, when more fundamental aspects of their finances are perhaps weak.However in situations like we are currently facing, it is often fear driving prices rather than genuine risks. This could be a chance to pick up strong dividend shares at a relatively cheap price, and thus gain a higher yield.Of course this isn’t to say all stocks that are currently falling have no real concerns. Airlines, for example, are likely to be fundamentally weakened for a long time to come. Meanwhile other industries, such as oil, are a mix of the two. Fear combined with oversupply and lower demand, will be likely to hit some oil stocks more than others over the long run.What to look for in a dividend shareThough there are always some fundamental things to look for in a dividend share, some of these are more relevant than others at the moment. First among these are measures of safety.Generally investing in dividend shares is aimed at income, rather than capital gains. This means we don’t necessarily need to buy a stock at its lowest price. Nor do we need to focus all our resources in a small number of shares to maximise gains.This means one key goal of buying dividend shares right now should be to diversify your investments. We should be avoiding the more risky industries at the moment. Though many firms will be suspending dividends, there are still a number of potential dividend shares to consider.You can also achieve this by putting money into an investment trust, which themselves hold a diverse portfolio of dividend shares.Another good rule of thumb is to invest in big, well-established companies with strong brands. A long history of consistent dividend payouts is also a good sign. This means focusing on blue-chip stocks in the FTSE 100, and looking at their dividend payout histories.As for the yield itself, things get a little harder. My general rule is for dividend shares yielding between 3% and 6%. The current situation changes both sides of this for me, however. At the lower end, a sensible dividend reduction is a fair move, especially if i expect it to go up again next year.On the other side, anything above 6% used to flag up warning signs for me. With fear driving price decreases, however, these kind of numbers are now an opportunity. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images.

Reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter From Florida Hospital – Apopka Please enter your name here Kids have amazing resiliency. And while it may seem like childhood naturally brings with it an endless stream of junk food and video games, science is showing us the importance of early cardiac health as the heart may not be as forgiving.“In pediatric cardiology, much of the focus is on congenital heart disease, but the fact is that your child is much more likely to die of acquired heart disease in their lifetime” states Dr. Matthew Zussman, Medical Director of Pediatric Interventional Cardiology at the Florida Hospital for Children.Dr. Zussman further explains why conversations about heart health must start young.Heart disease can start earlyPreventing heart disease should be a focus as early as possible, and the paradigm is shifting to support this discussion. “The medical community is finding that coronary artery disease, which can lead to a heart attack over time, can start much younger than was once thought,” says Dr. Zussman. Recent studies show the early stages of coronary artery disease can start as young as age 12.The concernThese findings coincide with the staggering increase in childhood obesity rates. The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that since the 1970s, the percentage of children with obesity has more than tripled in the United States- with one in five school-aged children (ages 6–19) considered obese today. With that, the rates of type 2 diabetes are also surging among youth. About 208,000 Americans under age 20 are estimated to carry this diagnosis.Dr. Zussman says, “This is concerning because the risk of coronary artery disease and stroke are correlated to the amount of time with diabetes; if you get diabetes young, you have a much higher risk of a cardiovascular event earlier in life.”Therefore, an abundance of unhealthy behaviors in childhood can pose serious consequences. From this, we can heed warning, but we can also be empowered by the fact that many of these problems can be reversed- and even entirely prevented- by developing a heart-healthy lifestyle in the formative years.What we can do“The good news is that in children, most early stages of coronary artery disease, and sometimes type 2 diabetes, are reversible with changes to diet and exercise alone,” says Dr. Zussman. But to do this, he adds, “This realization to live a more heart-healthy lifestyle must start young.”Dr. Zussman shares his tips for teaching kids heart-healthy habits for lifelong health:Let kids be kids (in moderation)“Kids have to be kids- they can eat pizza and eat ice cream as treats or on special occasions, but not as part of a regular diet,” Dr. Zussman advises. From all fad diets over the years- no fat to no carb and everything in between – he says, “A healthy balanced diet that considers everything in moderation is best.”Cut out sodas and sugary drinks“When it comes to obesity, a clear threat – if not the biggest – to children in the American diet is high sugar beverages,” Dr. Zussman states. He says that many people are not aware of how many extra calories and sugars are in what we drink, and there is no good reason to put that much into your body.Water is vital for every organ in your body. Soda, on the other hand, wreaks havoc by spiking blood sugar and promoting weight gain. Studies have shown a significantly decreased risk in having a fatal heart attack in men and women who drink five or more glasses of water per day. For these reasons, Dr. Zussman advises, “Encourage children to cut out sodas and other sugar-filled drinks and just drink water; this change alone could cut the rates of childhood obesity in half.”ExerciseDr. Zussman says that exercise is a big factor in kids’ present and long-term heart health. The American Heart Association’s guidelines recommend that kids get at least 60-minutes of physical activity every day. “This doesn’t have to be full out cardiovascular exercise, just get kids active,” Dr. Zussman emphasizes.He says that teens, however, need more intensity: “It’s recommended for teens to get at least 30- to 40-minutes of cardiovascular exercise (getting their heart rates up) at least four days per week.”Limit screen time“Sitting promotes a sedentary lifestyle, which is a major risk factor for developing heart disease and diabetes,” explains Dr. Zussman. Therefore, he recommends that parents limit screen time to one hour per day- including total time on TV, computers, tablets, reading devices, video games, and any electronics. Encourage kids to get up and keep moving for better heart health and overall wellbeing.Model behaviorDr. Zussman makes a great point, “Up to a child’s early teens, parents are the primary decision makers over the foods and activities in their children’s lives.” He adds that whatever the parents are eating, children will too: “Once kids are old enough to make their own choices, you want them to have had years of good habits and examples.”The real key is getting a child excited about activity and exercise as well as buying, preparing and eating healthy foods. It is easier to set these habits at a young age than trying to change bad ones in adulthood.Getting supportDr. Zussman concludes, “In general, if parents have questions about their children’s heart health, they shouldn’t hesitate to seek help.” He adds that Florida Hospital offers some of the best pediatric heart health promotion programs in the country including Healthy 100 Kids, which is offered to all children regardless of weight or health status.These programs – and Dr. Zussman’s tips – can help children balance the forgiveness of youth with lifelong healthy habits that protect their hearts for years to come.

The Madisonhouse is perched on a knoll in La Quinta, California, near Palm Springs. In order to shelter the house from extreme desert conditions, the massing and materiality are configured to protect against the sun and strong Northerly winds. Concurrently the house opens completely along an East-West axis culminating in a spectacular indoor-outdoor living space with full height glass walls that slide away to embrace the desert landscape, light and mountain views. Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe project was conceived as a series of freestanding volumes set beneath and between projecting horizontal slabs. These freestanding volumes in stone, concrete and oak are spaced and configured to create the different scales of indoor-outdoor space that flow between them. Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannTo the South a large volume containing service spaces buffers the house against the solar gain, and opens to the courtyard, the kitchen area and at both ends. To the North a volume containing bedrooms creates a windbreak to severe winds that can reach 100mph. These volumes frame a courtyard, the main entry gates and a series of glass pivot doors, the main entry to the house. Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannAn East-West shift in these volumes creates the space for an open kitchen/ dining/ living area that expands laterally across the entire West elevation. This is the main space of the house and it opens completely to the landscape. Glass doors on three sides pivot and slide away and disappear into hidden wall slots. The terrazzo floors and white plaster ceiling extend the space horizontally out the landscape. Separate secondary volumes – a stone fireplace, a dark oak kitchen, a 30-foot long wood and marble island, an oak cabinet and floating cast terrazzo stairs — anchor the space and conceal all the structure and systems required for the large spans and cantilevers.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannA partial second story bridges the lower volumes and contains the master bedroom suite and an outdoor terrace/ fireplace area. The spaces on this floor are also configured with strong volumetric, solid/void relationships to create a free flowing indoor-outdoor series of spaces opening to the landscape. Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannWhile the plan is rational and orthogonal, one traverses the space obliquely, with dynamic diagonal views between the volumes opening space in multiple directions. The volumes mark the space but do not define it, allowing the landscape to become an integral and dynamic part of the house. Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe Madisonhouse was designed to be more than just passively environmental. Building components, assemblies and fixtures were selected to achieve environmental goals. Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) walls were used throughout the project, creating super-insulated R60 assemblies. Four-foot thick stone and concrete walls, deep glazing recesses and large cantilevered overhangs were calculated to shield the house from massive desert solar gain. The house opens in every direction to draw air through a second story thermal chimney. The courtyard reflecting pool and main pool provide evaporative cooling for the ground floor areas. High performance glass, high efficiency mechanical systems, fixtures and photovoltaic panels further reduce the energy profile of the house.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannLike the desert climate itself, the Madisonhouse is a study in dualities. Large open and fluid spaces are framed by massive solid and fixed elements. Light white terrazzo floors and countertops are bounded by dark rift oak wood cabinetry. Rough stone walls frame openings of precise metal and glass doors. There are eighty sliding glass walls in the house, all configured to slide away and disappear completely into hidden wall pockets. There are few materials used throughout the house but they are used in a multiplicity of ways indoors and outdoors throughout the house. Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThe exterior walls of the house are designed to blend into the desert landscape. The stone walls are quarried locally, and anchoring the building to its site and to the adjacent mountains. The white horizontal rooflines float above and cantilever beyond these walls, a series of strong sculptural lines that relate to the scale and the horizontality of the desert, connecting the house to its natural surroundings.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Pin-Up MagazineVideosLondon School of Economics and Political Sciences (LSE) New Global Center for the So…Event Share “COPY” Year: CopyAbout this officeXTEN ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa QuintaHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 30, 2013Cite: “Madison House / XTEN Architecture” 30 May 2013.

The creation of a building in which the space is simplified to the utmost limit and the people could have primitive experiences there: the House of Senzokuike, known as Monolith, was created under that proposition. Its initial concept was strongly influenced by the story of the 1968 movie “Space Odyssey 2001”, in which “Monolith”, a black extraterrestrial slate, first gives “intelligence” to an ape.Save this picture!© 45g Photography – Junji KojimaNot only the necessity of meeting the strict laws and regulations for the protection of quiet cityscapes, but also its location with differences of elevation, which might cause the windows to face other houses’ windows, provided this building with the theme of integration between the heaven and underground.Save this picture!First and Second Floor PlansWith this theme in mind, materials were carefully selected, and the house was built with a universal design language using three elements; stone & concrete, steel panels and glass.Save this picture!© 45g Photography – Junji KojimaThis house with a balanced and neat facade may look different every time you visit it because of the combination of the outer wall of the hot-dip galvanized phosphoric acid steel panels and the metal black stone floor. That is why the building, despite its simple form, gives people different impressions depending on his/her viewpoint, and its appearance has profoundness and nobility.Save this picture!© 45g Photography – Junji KojimaThe interior is composed of three overlapping spaces with different volumes, namely, “Sky” in which the transitions of the sky leading to the heaven are introduced into the room from the top portion, “Earth” in which the level difference between the exterior and its floor brings a sense of relaxation like dwelling in a primitive pit, and “Underground” with a far larger space than you would expect.Save this picture!SectionsLight and shade through the stairway and atrium that connect the “Sky”, “Earth” and “Underground” intertwine, creating a microcosm with the graceful imaginativeness in the space where a tense atmosphere could be felt.Save this picture!© 45g Photography – Junji KojimaThis house, which is the outcome of elaborate detail work, begins to express its real value only when you enter into it and experience the space. The decoration is a medium for drawing out the essence hidden in details, and countless small judgments on the optimization of the dimensions of each part and the application of various materials eliminate impure elements and elevates the building to the pure Monolith. It is anticipated that the passing of the time will sublimate this pure and innocent Monolith into one and only existence.Save this picture!© 45g Photography – Junji KojimaProject gallerySee allShow lessFree Online Course on Urban Challenges in the Global South Offers Two Scholarships f…OpportunitiesShanghai C&D Building / gadSelected Projects Share TETENS Year: Projects Architects: Kidosaki Architects Studio Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/892570/house-in-senzoku-ike-monolith-kidosaki-architects-studio Clipboard Japan “COPY” CopyHouses•Tokyo, Japan Mechanical Engineer: House in Senzoku-Ike / Monolith / Kidosaki Architects StudioSave this projectSaveHouse in Senzoku-Ike / Monolith / Kidosaki Architects StudioSave this picture!© 45g Photography – Junji Kojima+ 25Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Photographs: 45g Photography – Junji Kojima ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/892570/house-in-senzoku-ike-monolith-kidosaki-architects-studio Clipboard Photographs Structural Engineer: General Contractor: Houses 2015 House in Senzoku-Ike / Monolith / Kidosaki Architects Studio “COPY” Area: 397 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Umezawa Structural Engineers ArchDaily MIZUSAWA KOMUTEN INC.

Warplanes deployed by the Saudi Arabian monarchy, the Gulf Cooperation Council and their allies, all backed by U.S. imperialism, are continuing the war aimed at regime change in Yemen into the fourth month.Since March 26 when the bombing of Yemen started, some 2,600 to 4,000 people have died, according to various sources. Telecommunications infrastructure, airports, ports, residential areas, hospitals and power stations have been targeted.On June 29 Press TV wrote, “Saudi military aircraft conducted attacks against a residential area in Sarwah district of Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib. … Nine members of a family lost their lives and three others sustained injuries. … Six civilians, among them two women and three children, were also killed as Saudi warplanes struck Shibam Kawkaban district in the western Yemeni province of al-Mahwit. … Saudi jets carried out over twenty aerial attacks against Sahar and Majz districts of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada.”U.S.-backed forces aim to destroyOn June 28, at least three people, including a child, were also killed when Saudi war planes struck the Fallah district in the northwestern province of Sa’ada and fighter jets pounded a neighborhood in the Saqin district in the same province, destroying two schools.The Saudi-GCC backed fugitive and ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi’s regime-in-exile announced in late June that there was no need to resume talks after the unsuccessful negotiations in Geneva. After delays in the talks due to obstacles placed on Ansurallah Movement (Houthis) representatives reaching Switzerland, the negotiations failed as a result of the obstructive posture of the Western-allied forces.Hadi took the position that if he was not reinstalled as the leader of the underdeveloped Middle Eastern state, then there was no basis for the cessation of the bombing and ground offensives launched against the Ansurallah as well as civilians in the country. The Ansurallah have taken large sections of Yemen since last year, forcing Hadi to flee to the southern port city of Aden and later to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where he remains.The West and its surrogates present the war as a proxy conflict between Saudi Arabia and GCC on one hand and the Islamic Republic of Iran and their allies, namely the Ansurallah in Yemen, on the other. Efforts by the United Nations to reach a political settlement, for example, by convening the June meeting in Geneva, have led nowhere.After the talks failed, an Omani plane carrying Houthi delegates back to Saana from Geneva was denied the right to land, since the U.S.-backed Saudi-GCC bombers control the airspace. The plane returned to Muscat, Oman.At present the U.N., while periodically condemning the airstrikes, has imposed no sanctions against the U.S. and the Saudi-GCC alliance, which is attempting to bomb Yemen into submission. Despite the war being waged for months, the Ansurallah Movement, allied with a coalition of other forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, has largely maintained its positions on the ground.U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s June 29 statement strongly objected to the imperialist-backed-coalition air strike, which severely damaged a U.N. Development Program facility and called for a return to negotiations.Population conditions worsenHumanitarian aid groups say that the situation is growing worse every day, with shortages of food, water, medicines and other essential services. Millions of people in Yemen need assistance.A June 29 statement taken by the relief organization Doctors Without Borders from Jasmin Mohammed Ali, 26, a teacher in the primary school in Qatabah, and her sister Asia Mohammed Ali, 25, provides a glimpse of their daily lives in Qatabah since the Saudi-GCC bombing began.Ali said, “Because of the ongoing crisis, the school I work in is closed; it has been closed for three months. Recently, the school (which was luckily empty at the time) was affected by the airstrikes as it is close to the central security office which was targeted; all the windows of the school were shattered.“There isn’t any running water anymore in Qataba as the main water facility for the town and the surrounding villages stopped working due to a fuel shortage. We have no water in our house and cannot fill up the tanks either. … Airstrikes and shelling [are] making us terrified and we can’t sleep well.” (msf.org)The U.N. special envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed of Mauritania, warned on June 24 that the war-ravaged nation was one step from widespread famine, where 31 million people are in desperate need of food, water, medicines, clothing, blankets and other basic services.The fighting is continuing to spread into Saudi Arabia where the Ansurallah and other loyalists are conducting cross-border raids that have killed and injured Riyadh’s soldiers and other security forces.This war remains largely hidden from the U.S. public where the corporate media have deliberately ignored the massive Saudi-GCC aerial bombings and ground operations carried out by militias supported by Riyadh, as well as the role of the Pentagon in engineering the crisis. The State Department claims it wants a peaceful resolution to the war, but continues to rationalize Washington’s intelligence coordination and refueling of Saudi- GCC forces.The assault on Yemen represents yet another failed and deadly war initiated and expanded by successive U.S. administrations whose aim is to control the Middle East at any cost to the population in those states.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News News February 24, 2021 Find out more News In August 2017, a few weeks after an opposition breakthrough in the June 2017 communal elections, the government began implementing a plan that led to the closure of more than 30 radio stations and Cambodia Daily, a newspaper that had helped nurture Khmer democracy for three decades. If there were still any doubts, it is now patently clear. Hun Sen’s clique dealt the final blow to 25 years of Khmer democracy at the start of June, when the National Election Commission (NEC) unveiled a code of conduct for election coverage that constitutes a shocking litany of press freedom violations. In the course of his election campaign, Prime Minister Hun Sen pretends to fight with an orangutan dressed as a boxer at the opening of Phnom Penh’s zoo on 23 June 2018.

Cambodian journalist gets 20 months in jail for livestream RSF publishes a regularly-updated Handbook for Journalists during Elections that offers detailed responses to all election coverage questions, including what to do when major constraints are imposed on the media’s ability to operate. “Cambodia’s trade partners, starting with the European Union, the United States and Japan, must draw the inevitable conclusions by quickly implementing sanctions against those responsible for this disastrous situation.” Three journalists, Uon Chhin, Yeang Sothearin and James Ricketson, have meanwhile been held on spying charges for months in Prey Sar prison. “This code of conduct uses a totalitarian language that recalls the worst periods of Cambodia’s history,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “These restrictions on journalists are the finishing touches to a ruthless plan launched a year ago to silence all dissent and turn Hun Sen into Cambodian press freedom’s high executioner. Organisation Cambodia is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, ten places lower than in 2017. Reporters covering the 29 July elections will face fines of up to 7,500 dollars if they conduct interviews near polling stations, use their “own ideas to make conclusions” or publish news that “affects political and social stability” or causes “confusion and loss of confidence” in the electoral process.
