Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Image source: Getty Images 2020 has been an extremely challenging year for dividend investors, which might be the biggest understatement ever made on The Motley Fool ’s pages. Hundreds of UK shares have cut or put a stop on dividend payments as the Covid-19 breakout has wreaked havoc.Okay, the dividend cutting has cooled more recently following the rollback of lockdown measures across the world. But payments have continued to topple at an alarming rate. Total dividends from UK shares fell by almost half year-on-year in Q3e, data shows. It’s also possible that the rate of cutting could pick up again as rising infection rates force countries to reimpose restrictions.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…UK shares are still great dividend payers!It’s obvious that those who want to continue enjoying plentiful income flows from UK shares need to be extremely careful. A prolonged and painful economic downturn would be disastrous for UK plc. But share pickers don’t need to panic. There are still plenty of top stocks out there that should keep paying big dividends, whatever happens to the global economy.For example, UK share pickers can choose from a variety of non-cyclical stocks like utilities providers, telecoms suppliers, food producers and retailers, even defence contractors. Firms like these are famed for their supreme earnings stability during good and bad times. Counter-cyclical shares are also good picks for today as their profits peak during challenging economic conditions like these. Stocks like this include discount retailers, insolvency specialists, alcohol manufacturers and fast food sellers.2 FTSE 100 firecrackers with BIG dividendsWith this in mind, let me talk you through two UK shares I’m thinking of adding to my Stocks and Shares ISA. I think their dividend yields make them worthy of serious attention:FTSE 100-quoted United Utilities Group is one of the most reliable utilities stocks out there, in my opinion. The water supplier can expect demand for its services to remain consistent during upturns and downturns. But this is not the reason it’s one of my favourite utilities. It also doesn’t face any competitive pressures in the areas in which it operates. The same can’t be said for power suppliers like Centrica, of course. Today this UK share sports a 5% dividend yield for this fiscal year.I’d also load up on Vodafone Group stock for these uncertain times. Like power and water demand, the profits of telecoms providers also prove to be quite resilient during economic cooldowns. I’d buy this FTSE 100 giant today for its excellent defensive qualities and its 7.8% forward dividend yield. And I’d hold it for years as its investment in fast-growing emerging regions promises to pay off handsomely. This week, the UK share acquired spectrum in Egypt on a 10-year licence to build its position in Africa’s third-largest economy.

first_img Houses Text description provided by the architects. Villa Berkel in Veenendaal (Netherlands) is built on a site formerly occupied by a bungalow dating from the nineteen seventies. The owners wanted to remodel the bungalow, but decided on the advice of Paul de Ruiter to demolish the bungalow and make room for a completely new design.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaWindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXBUILDING PLOT The woods around the villa are dark, which means it is important to ensure that as much light can enter the house as possible. However, the more glass is used in a building, the more difficult it is to maintain the dividing line between inside and outside, private and public. Therefore the building plot is divided into three long strips at right angles to the road. The bottom and southernmost strip is reserved for the garden, the middle strip contains the villa itself and the most northern strip offers access to the house: this is where the drive, parking space and the entrance are located. This layout of the site means that those parts of the house that the residents prefer to keep private are out of sight. Save this picture!LIVING ZONES The layout of the site is repeated in the floor plan of the house. This is also divided into three strips over the 30-metre length of the villa. To ensure both openness and liveability, the floor plan is split. The eastern section, at the street side, contains the more ‘public’ functions: the entrance, study, kitchen and living; while the western section, furthest removed from the street, is reserved for the more intimate activities: a corridor that acts as TV lounge, the bedrooms and the bathroom. This means that the character of the functions gradually becomes more intimate. Each function has its own zone within the house, which can be cut off by means of translucent sliding walls. Save this picture!LIVING IN THE GARDEN To create openness and lightness and tot give the residents the feeling living outside in the green, the house is entirely oriented to the secluded garden at the south. Every room in the villa looks directly out on to this garden, because three of the four façades are made of glass. Save this picture!The spacious wooden terrace forms a room outdoors, partly covered by a wooden awning supported by steel brackets that taper upwards. This gives it the appearance of floating above the ground. Ponds have been laid on both sides of the villa, so that the house here, too, appears to be raised above ground level, emphasising the lightness of the building.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessChinatrust Bank Headquarters designed by NBBJArticlesArchitectural Billings Index Hits All-Time LowArticles Share ArchDaily “COPY” Villa Berkel / Paul de Ruiter ArchitectsSave this projectSaveVilla Berkel / Paul de Ruiter Architects Area:  277 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePaul de Ruiter ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodHousesVeenendaal3D ModelingThe NetherlandsPublished on February 26, 2009Cite: “Villa Berkel / Paul de Ruiter Architects” 26 Feb 2009.

The house is located outside of Paphos centre, in Geroskipou. In order to build the comfortable house for the customers, the architect has paid attention to their requirements: three bedrooms, big veranda, a space for family and a special space for celebrations and events, the house has to be located far from the road. The customers preferred classical features in the outside.Save this picture!© Pambis IakovouThe architect’s idea was to create a “neutral space” that he learnt in London. The purpose was to build a house, that the customers could give their own character without changing building’s architectural form. Save this picture!© Pambis IakovouA house for Cypriots consists of 4 events: 1) space for family 2) space for guests 3) space for sleeping 4) external space. The plan of the house was made having in mind the first three events in a rectangle boxes. The three boxes are located with a way that they use the environmental advantages of the area. They are connected with a central corridor. The inner and the outer parts are the part of the composition. Save this picture!© Pambis IakovouThe architect and the civil engineer chose the conventional/standard construction for building. Walls are made of concrete and mediterranean plastered bricks. Floors are made of granite, except bedrooms, where parquet (wooden floor) was used. A model (maquette) helped the technicians to understand better the construction of the building. Save this picture!© Pambis IakovouIn the end, the experience of this construction made the architect more confident, that the constructions that are not the usual ones can be made with the best collaboration of the architect, the civil engineer and the customers. The house represented Cyprus in the 6th Mies Van Der Rohe European awards of architecture in Barcelona. It was also nominated for the president of the republic of Cyprus national award for architecture. The project is widely published in Cyprus and Europe.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessagriCultural Mountain Winning Proposal / Group IUTArticles’Hong Kong at 15: Redefining the Public Realm’ ExhibitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” ArchDaily Photographs:  Pambis Iakovou+ 8 Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Flashback: Maria’s Residence / Vardastudio Architects & Designers CopyAbout this officeVardastudio Architects & DesignersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasPaphosHouses3D ModelingCyprusPublished on December 09, 2012Cite: “Flashback: Maria’s Residence / Vardastudio Architects & Designers” 09 Dec 2012.

first_imgOne to ten percent of agricultural pesticide sprays drift or move from the intended target crop. Every year about 70 million pounds of pesticides valued up to $640 million are lost to pesticide drift.  And, state agencies use substantial resources each year investigating drift complaints. Farmers have long been concerned about reducing pesticide product loss during and after application to crops and minimizing drift to neighbors. A pesticide manufacturer can choose to label a product for use with a DRT of a particular rating after receiving approval from EPA. Over time, the program will move the agricultural sector toward the widespread use of low-drift technologies. Drift-reduction ratings could appear on pesticide labels as early as fall 2015. Additional information on EPA’s DRT Program, including how to test technologies, is available at: . EPA Launches Star-Rating Program to Reduce Pesticide Drift The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing a new voluntary Drift Reduction Technology (DRT) program to encourage the use of verified, safer pesticide spray products to reduce exposure and pesticide movement while saving farmers money in pesticide loss. “Every year state and local agencies receive thousands of complaints about the impacts of pesticide drift on people, wildlife and plants,” said Jim Jones, Assistant Administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. “Our new star-rating system of products and technologies will help farmers reduce drift, protect neighbors and reduce costs by keeping more of the pesticide on the crop.  We hope the new voluntary DRT will encourage the manufacture, marketing and use of safer spray technology and equipment scientifically proven to reduce pesticide drift.” Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA Launches Star-Rating Program to Reduce Pesticide Drift SHARE SHAREcenter_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 21, 2014 Spray technology manufacturers interested in participating in EPA’s DRT program may now submit data verifying their technology reduces pesticide movement.  EPA will evaluate each data submission and, if appropriate, assign a drift-reduction star rating to the product based on its ability to reduce spray drift. EPA will post these ratings at: . Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter DRT is a voluntary program that encourages manufacturers to test their technologies (such as nozzles, spray shields and drift reduction chemicals) for drift reduction potential.  EPA encourages pesticide manufacturers to label their products for use with DRT technologies. The four DRT ratings represented by one, two, three or four stars are awarded for technologies that demonstrate at least 25 percent reduction in potential spray drift compared to the standard.

Organisation Follow the news on France FranceEurope – Central Asia News Guillaume Dasquié, the editor of the Gé website, was released last night after being charged with “possessing information or files that are national defence secrets and revealing them to the public.” It carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros. Dasquié in now “under judicial control.” An anti-terrorism judge, Philippe Coirre, has been put in charge of the case.Reporters Without Borders continues to regard the judicial procedures being taken against Dasquié as improper. He was just doing his job as a journalist and should not held responsible for leaks from within the government.————————————————–6 December 2007Counter-espionage police hold investigative journalist after searching his home for information about leaksReporters Without Borders condemns the search carried out on the home of investigative journalist Guillaume Dasquié, the founder and editor of the political news website, by a counter-espionage unit on 5 December and Dasquié’s detention since then.“It is unprecedented and outrageous that counter-espionage police raided a journalist’s home at dawn, searched it for five hours and then took him into custody,” the press freedom organisation said. “A leak from within the intelligence services or the office of an investigative judge cannot not be blamed on the journalist who publishes the information, which in this case clearly deserved to made public. Dasquié just did his job and does not deserve to be treated like this.”The search of Dasquié’s Paris home was carried out by six members of the Directorate for Territorial Surveillance (DST), who arrived at 7 a.m. and stayed until 1 p.m., when they took him back to their headquarters. They have been holding him there since under a form of police custody that cannot exceed an initial period of 48 hours. During the search, he was questioned about his sources for documents about the 1995 murder of French judge Bernard Borrel in Djibouti.Paris prosecutors opened a preliminary investigation against Dasquié on 10 November 2006 on suspicion of “violating the confidentiality of a judicial investigation” and receiving stolen documents. The same day, plain-clothes police questioned him for 10 hours, trying to find out how he obtained documents from the Central Directorate for General Intelligence (DCRG) about Djibouti President Ismaël Omar Guelleh’s alleged involvement in illegal activity before he was president and his possible involvement in the French judge’s murder.In the latest raid, the investigators were also reportedly also interested in an article published in Le Monde on 16 April of this year entitled “The French knew a lot about 9/11.” It quoted a “confidential defence report” by the General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) for “strictly national use,” which dated back to 2000 or 2001 and which spelled out what the French intelligence services knew about Al-Qaeda.
