Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can be a great way to gain exposure to the stock market. Through one ETF, you can potentially get access to hundreds of stocks, at a very low cost.However, it pays to be selective when it comes to investing in ETFs. Some are likely to provide much stronger returns over the long run than others. With that in mind, here’s a look at three of my top picks available to UK investors.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 best ETFs to invest inOne of my favourite ETFs is the iShares Edge MSCI World Quality Factor UCITS ETF. This is a global equity product that provides exposure to 300 companies within the MSCI World index.What’s unique about this particular exchange-traded fund is that instead of just tracking a regular stock market index such as the FTSE 100, it provides exposure to a selection of high-quality companies listed around the world. Specifically, it invests in companies that: This is an excellent investment strategy, in my view. In theory, the strategy should provide an element of protection in the event of a market downturn.This fund is listed on the London Stock Exchange under tickers IWQU (USD) and IWFQ (GBP). Its ongoing charge is 0.30% per year. I think it’s one of the best ETFs to buy for broad global equity exposure.Source: iShares.comA sustainable investing ETFSustainable investing has become increasingly popular in recent years and it’s not hard to see why. This form of investing seeks to deliver a healthy financial return while also considering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors.One ETF I hold in high regard in this area is the iShares MSCI World SRI UCITS ETF (ticker SUWS). This product aims to provide access to the global markets through companies with outstanding ESG ratings and minimal controversies. Specifically, it screens out companies involved in the oil & gas, weapons, tobacco, firearms, alcohol, and gambling industries.This fund was only launched in October 2017, so it hasn’t been around for that long. However, in that time, it’s delivered very solid returns. I think it has a lot of potential in a world that’s increasingly focusing on sustainability. Ongoing charges are 0.20% per year.Source: iShares.comAn exchange-traded fund for the digital revolutionFinally, I think it’s smart to have a decent level of exposure to the technology sector. Technology companies are having a huge impact on the world at the moment, and look set for big growth in the years ahead.One of the best ways to invest in technology, in my view, is through a simple NASDAQ 100 tracker, such as the iShares NASDAQ 100 UCITS ETF. This will provide exposure to all the major players listed on the technology-focused NASDAQ stock exchange, such as Apple, Amazon, and Alphabet (Google).You can find this particular ETF on the London Stock Exchange under ticker CNDX. Ongoing charges are 0.33% per year.I’ll point out that technology stocks have had a great run recently. Some areas of the technology sector do look a little overheated. I’d be looking to buy this fund when we next see a market pullback.Source: iShares.com Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

My FTSE best stocks to buy now list: 2 to consider for 2021 and beyond Enter Your Email Address I believe the stock market could rally in 2021. With that in mind, I have detailed two FTSE picks from my best stocks to buy now list.Best stocks to buy now #1FTSE small-cap growth share Clipper Logistics (LSE:CLG) is my first pick. CLG is a logistics firm that focuses primarily on the retail sector. Its client base includes ASOS, Asda, and British American Tobacco. Many retailers have had to adopt a stronger online presence in the face of  restrictions. This has resulted in the need for logistics and e-fulfilment services which will continue in 2021 and beyond, in my opinion.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…In CLG’s first half-year trading update, it reported a revenue increase of nearly 30% compared to the same period last year. In its most recent trading update, released at the beginning of January, CLG reported increases in revenue in its logistics business of 50% for the months of November and December compared to the same period last year. I’m confident these positive results will continue in 2021 and beyond.CLG is currently trading at 566p per share as I write. This is a 310% increase from its market crash low of 135p per share in March 2020. I see its share price increasing further in 2021 as the retail sector adapts to evolving shopping habits. Excellent performance, an established client base, and potential to grow further is why CLG is on my FTSE best stocks to buy now list for 2021 and beyond. FTSE 100 opportunityJust Eat (LSE:JET) has benefited from the pandemic and restrictions, which have forced many to stay indoors. JET has strategically navigated atop the online takeaway industry. It has consistently invested in its infrastructure and made shrewd acquisitions. Forbes estimates the food delivery industry could be worth a staggering $200bn by 2025 and is thriving.JET released a fourth-quarter trading update last month. The Q4 marked a third consecutive quarter of growth and order growth of 58% in the UK alone. Delivery orders increased nearly five-fold compared to the same period in 2019. JET expects an over-50% increase in revenue for the year.JET shares are currently trading at close to 7,500p per share. This is a 36% increase from the market crash bottom of 5,500p back in March 2020. It has recovered well and I believe this trend could continue in 2021. Analysts forecast JE will record earnings growth of nearly 25% in 2021 and profits will be close to double too, which is why it is on my best stocks to buy now list. Of course, forecasts can change based on future developments and can’t be relied on.Risk and rewardJET has been growing rapidly with a very aggressive growth strategy. This has resulted in the company recording losses which troubles me. In addition to that, if the pandemic ends in 2021, performance could slow as people return to eating out rather than ordering in. CLG’s balance sheet shows it has a fair bit of debt. This troubles me as it could make the stock vulnerable if a downturn occurs and shoppers return to the high street. Furthermore, CLG chairman Steve Parkin recently sold about £60m worth of stock. I interpret this as a sign he may see the current valuation as a bit high. I understand these risks but these two are still on my best stocks to buy now list for 2021. Here is another FTSE 100 stock I really like. Image source: Getty Images last_img read more

An office, a warehouse, plus a residence for family expansion. According to an initial requirement of the project owner, Khun Noppawarat Pornputhakul, the main functions of T-House were created to support her family business, a cloth wholesaller from Pratunam District. To maintain the circulations and routine of the old house in Nonthaburi Province, a new built needed to be not just only a residence for an expanding family plus a small garment storage, but also needed to include an additional space for a new office and prepare an area for a further phase of family extension.Save this picture!© Ketsiree Wongwan, Apinine ThassanopasTo aggregate the owner’s aspiration with a design, NOTDS pulled out the essences of Pornputhakul family and blended them together with Thai living habit and Western ideal; a mixture of a Tropical Architecture with Modernity, to result a simple-formed structure. As a wholesaller of the undergarment, this cloth line was designed to be simple and monochrome mainly using white, grey and black. Because of holding a believe which the underwear needed to be shown focusing on its cutting and fabric more than its striking patterns, thus NOTDS introduced this characteristic through the house with an idea of minimalism.Save this picture!Section‘Jai Baan or a heart of the house’ locating perfectly at the heart of this two-storey dwell. This centered piece is composed of two crossing staircases functioning to connect all rooms on the second level. One performed itself laying on a T-shaped layout. It ties the working spaces between two floors together; the main working area on the ground floor and the executive office on the second floor. Meanwhile, another staircase is working to connect the private spaces; living area, bedrooms, kitchen of the first floor, and two bedrooms on the second floor.Save this picture!© Ketsiree Wongwan, Apinine ThassanopasAt Jaibaan, architects carefully concerned an issue of energy-saving. NOTDS placed three small overhead skylights on the rooftop in order to limit the amount of heat accessing the house. The heat will reach only the top volume of the staircases, the circulation which considered to be the least usage area of the house. Architects also inserted an idea of putting numerous cotton stripes weaving above the stairs. With its material profile; translucent but transparent, it helps screening the  direct sunlight to achieve the lower volume. In the same time of representing itself as the iconic of this house, the characteristic of these hanging fabrics remind the dwellers of the famiy business and the history in which the family has been through. The layers of the cotton shadings attempt to separate the public and private space apart, meantime, give the sense of the occupacy between the outsiders and the habitants.Save this picture!Floor PlanBy stacking two T-shaped staircases, the designers intended to create the crossed circulation between two zones, the public zone and the private zone. As a result, an executive room on the second floor is able to view the activities of the habitant happened on the ground floor through the  double-volume space. Two bedrooms on the second floor were also placed facing each other on the opposite sides. Both are connecting together with the bridge, thus the owner is able to see the working area down below at all time. Living space on ground floor was planned despite the criteria of owner’s mother who would like to have a traditional Thai living room, one that consisted ‘Tang or big wooden sofa bed.’ The designer, therefore, transformed the form of the olden Tang using the western-styled sofa to form a new different shape with multi-functions of sofa bed. The transformation of cotton is also brought to apply with the ceiling pattern to make the house more unique.Save this picture!© Ketsiree Wongwan, Apinine ThassanopasThe exterior appearance is shaped despite the pure geometric form to reflect each function straightforwardly inside out. The finalized design turned out to be simple and literally symmatry. NOTDS swirled the building shape following to the weather condition; to protect the house from receiving the direct sunlight and heat from the West. The team also designed a high-pitched roof above Jaibaan boundary to express how to avoid and retain the natural light. The position of 30 windows composited around the house were intregrated thoughtfully according to human scale and responding to human functions of which creating the unique views and new dimensions for this house. The design of long roof eaves were derived from Thai traditional element, although the architects had re-designed them to be able to fold and extrude when in need. Made of the 50-centimeter-sized Aluminum sheet, it creates the pure clean appearance for the house exterior.Save this picture!© Ketsiree Wongwan, Apinine ThassanopasProject gallerySee allShow lessSwift House / WMR ArquitectosSelected ProjectsAtkins Designs Striking Office Complex in GuangzhouArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/535238/t-house-notds Clipboard Year:  Architects: NOTDS Area Area of this architecture project T-House / NOTDSSave this projectSaveT-House / NOTDS Warehouse ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeNOTDSOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsIndustrial ArchitectureWarehouseResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionNonthaburiIndustrial ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentThailandPublished on August 07, 2014Cite: “T-House / NOTDS” 07 Aug 2014.

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Very Few Options Remain on Weed Control SHARE SHARE Very Few Options Remain on Weed ControlThe lack of pre-plant field work has prevented many growers from getting their burndown and weed control programs started. As a result, weeds have become a serious issue for late planted and unplanted fields. Ben Jacob, with Pioneer, says,  with some weeds almost a foot tall, there are very few options left for control.“This year glyphosate alone is not going to carry the load,” he states. “We are going to have to use the full rates on all the chemistry we have.” He added, for fields that will not be planted, mechanical tillage may be the best option.Jacob warns that growers need to think ahead to 2020 when applying chemicals, “This late in the season, growers need to be aware of plantback restrictions with certain products. This may limit their choices for the 2020 crop.”Purdue University has made available three short videos discussing corn, soybean, and weed management strategies facing growers this year. Those resources can be found here.

The UN Human Rights Committee’s General Comment No. 34 says that, under article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Algeria ratified in 1989, no media outlet can be penalized for criticizing a political or social system. Follow the news on Algeria May 18, 2021 Find out more May 12, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Article 55 of the proposed new constitution establishes the right to access and obtain information, but it says this right cannot violate the “legitimate interests of companies.” Such a restriction on freedom of expression is not recognized in international law and poses a real danger to the right to provide information about economic issues – a domain that is not necessarily separate from the political domain in Algerian legislation. October 30, 2020 Put real press freedom at “new Algeria’s” centre, RSF sayscenter_img The referendum comes amid a growing crackdown on press freedom that has been under way since the start of the coronavirus epidemic – a crackdown that raises doubts about the Algerian government’s real desire to guarantee its citizens’ freedom to be informed and its journalists’ freedom to inform them. In April, legislators approved a proposed amendment to the penal code criminalizing “fake news” that “threatens public order and state security.” Violations will be punishable by one to three years in prison or twice that for a subsequent offence. A first time offence will be punishable by up to five years in prison if it takes place “at a time of a public health lockdown or a natural, biological or technological disaster or any other form of disaster.” Several journalists are currently the targets of criminal prosecutions or have already been given prison sentences. They include Casbah Tribune news website editor Khaled Drareni, who is also the Algeria correspondent of RSF and the French TV channel TV5 Monde. Drareni was sentenced to two years in prison on appeal on 15 September for “inciting an unarmed gathering” and “endangering national unity.” The referendum on the proposed constitutional reform, Tebboune’s flagship initiative, is being held on 1 November, the 66th anniversary of the start of Algeria’s 1954-62 independence war. At his inauguration in December 2019, Tebboune pledged to overhaul the constitution to respond to the aspirations of the “Hirak” streets protests that began in February 2019. He is now telling Algerians he wants to “build a new Algeria” by reinforcing fundamental freedoms, including press freedom and the freedom to inform. Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria “These constitutional guarantees represent a step forward for the right and freedom to inform in Algeria but they won’t be effective unless the country’s current legislation, especially its penal code, is brought into line with the new constitution and with Algeria’s obligations as regards press freedom and the freedom to inform,” said Souhaieb Khayati, the head of RSF’s North Africa bureau. “We therefore urge President Tebboune to ensure that the ‘new Algeria’ is accompanied by real progress as regards press freedom.” Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections News Legally enshrined restrictions of this kind – involving “national characteristics” such as the republican nature of the state, Islam as state religion, the integrity and unity of the country’s territory, and national security – are worrying because their wording lacks precision and can be interpreted in various ways. Help by sharing this information However, although article 54 of the proposed new constitution guarantees the freedom of “print, broadcast and social media,” it stipulates that this freedom “cannot be used to violate the dignity, freedoms and rights of other persons” and that it is exercised “within the framework of the law and respect for the Nation’s religious, moral and cultural characteristics and values.” News Organisation Algeria is ranked 146th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index, five places lower than in 2019 and 27 places lower than in 2015.last_img read more
