Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.  We asked our freelance writers to share the top income stocks they’d buy for October and beyond. Here’s what they chose:Tom Rodgers: Apax Global Alpha Apax Global Alpha (LSE:APAX) shares have recovered sharply to hit 160p, almost exactly where they were pre-pandemic. A 5.96% yield on a P/E of 4 may already look good, but there’s something even better going on here.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…This FTSE 250 private equity fund has a progressive dividend policy, which means it paid an average 5.75% yield over the last five years, and also wants to raise dividends per share every year. A massive hike in pre-tax profits last year means it now has wads of cash to invest worldwide too. I think this is a winner.Tom Rodgers has no position in Apax Global AlphaKevin Godbold: Tate & LyleTate & Lyle (LSE: TATE) provides ingredients and solutions to the food, beverage and other industries. The company has a long record of paying consistent shareholder dividends and held the payment through the recent coronavirus challenges. Indeed, so far, the firm appears to have navigated the crisis well. Trading has continued, helped by the defensive qualities of the food sector in general. Meanwhile, with the share price near 678p, the forward-looking dividend yield for the trading year to March 2022 is around 4.5%. I reckon the steady business backing this company makes this a top income share for October and beyond.Kevin Godbold does not own shares in Tate & Lyle.Royston Wild: United Utilities GroupRisk appetite remains sluggish and is unlikely to pick up as Covid-19, Brexit, and the US Presidential elections dominate newsflow. This means that investing in some classic defensive shares remains a sound idea for investors.One such UK share I think is a quality buy today is United Utilities Group. Its essential role as water supplier makes it an ideal stock for uncertain macroeconomic and geopolitical times like these. But this is not the only reason I’d buy this FTSE 100 colossus. It also carries a mighty 4.9% dividend yield at current prices.United Utilities also boasts a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 19 times today. It’s a rating that’s not that appealing on paper, sure. But this premium rating is fully deserved, in my opinion, given the company’s colossal defensive qualities during these difficult times.Royston Wild does not own shares in United Utilities Group.Rachael FitzGerald-Finch: GlaxoSmithKlineMy income stock pick for October is GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK).The pharmaceutical giant has solid business fundamentals and stable cashflows, both necessary requirements for a reliable dividend payer.Indeed, in uncertain times, a defensive stock like GSK is a good addition to an investment portfolio due to consistent demand for the firm’s products. Moreover, its differentiated and innovative product pipeline gives it a competitive advantage in its markets.To boot, GSK currently offers a 5.5% dividend yield. What’s not to like?!Rachael FitzGerald-Finch owns shares in GlaxoSmithKlineKirsteen Mackay: Hargreaves Lansdown  Savings and investment platform Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE:HL) is a strong company with a cash generating business model. In its trading statement released October 8, it reported growth in clients, assets and revenue. It has a price-to-earnings ratio of 22 and earnings per share are 66p. I like its 3.7% dividend yield, which is a decent return for a UK-focused business and has been increasing year-on-year.With so much economic uncertainty in the world, investors like the credibility and stability Hargreaves Lansdown offers. Its fees are competitive, and discounts are available for regular investments. I think it’s well positioned to continue growing its customer base.Kirsteen does not own shares in Hargreaves LansdownMatthew Dumigan: British American Tobacco In my view, British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) has one of the safest dividend payouts in the entire FTSE 100 index. This is largely thanks to a strong and stable performance in the first half of 2020, which kept cash flows intact despite the unfavourable macroeconomic climate. The industry titan boasts a whopping 7.7% yield with a cover of 1.5. What’s more, the company has an impressive record of dividend growth over the years.  Ultimately, while the performance of British American Tobacco shares may leave something to be desired, I reckon income investors will certainly continue to appreciate its first-rate dividend payments.Matthew Dumigan does not own shares in British American Tobacco.Harshil Patel: IG Group IG Group (LSE:IGG) benefitted from stock market volatility this year. This online provider of trading services recently highlighted that its trading revenue was up significantly versus the prior year, driven by continued high levels of activity by existing clients and a rise in new clients. There are plenty of reasons for markets to remain turbulent. Potential news flow regarding the US election, Covid-19 measures, and Brexit-related negotiations could support trading activity.  With a dividend yield of 5.5%, net cash on the balance sheet, and revenue growth, I’d say that IG Group shares look suitable for both growth and income investors. Harshil Patel owns shares in IG Group. Rupert Hargreaves: BellwayHomebuilder Bellway (LSE: BWY) has established itself as an income stock over the past few years – and I think it could fare well for October and beyond. Rising home prices have significantly benefited the company’s bottom line, helping it return large chunks of cash to investors. In 2019, the company paid a dividend of 150p per share. A return to this level would give a yield of 5.6% on a current stock price. Currently, analysts are forecasting a yield of 3.5% for 2021. With the stock trading down 30% since the beginning of the year, I reckon now could be an excellent time to snap up this income stock while it trades at a bargain price. Rupert Hargreaves does not own shares in Bellway.Stuart Blair: Legal & GeneralAfter its share price decline, Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) is now yielding over 9%. But while such a high dividend may cause concern for a cut, in this case, the dividend looks very sustainable. This is because the company has seen rising profits over the last few years, and this has been accompanied by dividend growth.Of course, the pandemic has had a negative effect on the insurer, and this has been met with a drop in its share price. But a resilient first half trading update, alongside an evident willingness to keep on paying its dividend, means that I’d buy Legal & General this month.Stuart Blair owns shares in Legal & General.Paul Summers: IG GroupThe amount of cash it distributes to shareholders hasn’t budged for a while but online trader IG Group (LSE: IGG) remains my go-to choice for dividends. After all, a predicted 43.2p per share total return in FY21 still gives a great yield of 5.6%. That’s streets ahead of the 1% or so you’d get from even the best Cash ISA.IG is the market leader in what it does and has a mountain of cash on its balance sheet. A valuation of just over 13 times forecast earnings also looks great value when you consider that markets may become volatile once again in the run-up to the US Election.Paul Summers owns shares in IG GroupEdward Sheldon: UnileverMy top income stock for October is consumer goods champion Unilever (LSE: ULVR). It currently sports a prospective dividend yield of about 3%.There are a few reasons I like Unilever as an income stock. One reason is that the company is pretty much recession-proof. This translates to consistent dividends for investors. While a large number of FTSE 100 companies cancelled or suspended their dividends earlier in the year due to economic uncertainty, Unilever didn’t.Another reason is that the company has a fantastic long-term dividend growth track record. Since the early 1950s, Unilever has compounded its dividend by around 8% per year.All things considered, I see ULVR as one of the best dividend-paying stocks in the FTSE 100 index.Edward Sheldon owns shares in UnileverJonathan Smith: Vodafone GroupVodafone Group (LSE:VOD) currently sits around the top 10% of highest dividend yields firms in the FTSE 100. The yield is at 7.39%, reflecting the current situation of the business. Current debt levels stand at an eye-watering €42.2bn, one of the reasons why the share price has fallen (and dividend yield has risen) this year.However, full-year results in May showed that free cash flow actually increased to €4.9bn. This, along with the fact that the firm went ahead with the dividend, makes me believe that the dividend will continue to be paid. Jonathan Smith has no position in Vodafone Group.G A Chester: Primary Health Properties I’ve made FTSE 250 firm Primary Health Properties  (LSE: PHP) my top income stock for October, not because it sports a super-high yield, but because it has a tremendous record of inflation-busting dividend growth over more than two decades. The company owns over 500 modern primary health facilities in the UK and Ireland. Its income is largely government-backed, and it’s more or less immune to events in the wider economy. This has enabled it to deliver 23 consecutive years of dividend growth. A current yield of 4.1%, a strong development pipeline, and rising and ageing populations, all bode well for continuing bumper income rewards. G A Chester has no position in Primary Health Properties.Roland Head: Polymetal InternationalThe gold price remains close to record highs, which means producers with low costs are enjoying record profits currently. My top income stock from the gold producers on the London market for October is Polymetal International (LSE: POLY), which operates mines in Russia and Kazakhstan.Polymetal’s profits are expected to double in 2020 and rise by a further 28% in 2021. Debt levels look comfortable to me and cash generation is good.City forecasts suggest shareholders could enjoy an 8% dividend yield next year. Despite the risk of a gold slowdown, I reckon Polymetal is an income buy right now.Roland Head does not own shares in Polymetal International.Manika Premsingh: Polymetal InternationalThe FTSE 100 precious metals miner, Polymetal International (LSE: POLY), recently doubled its dividends. That alone is reason to consider buying this income-generating stock.But there are others too. Like its dividend yield. At 3.5% it isn’t dismal, even though it isn’t the highest. Its dividend continuity is likely too. That it has paid dividends consistently in the past supports this argument. Moreover, gold prices are expected to rise further as the pandemic continues and the economy remains uncertain. This too will support POLY’s financial strength and its ability to pay dividends.Three, its recent share price fall makes this an opportune time to buy the share. Manika Premsingh owns shares of Polymetal International Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!last_img read more

The project site is located within the Taihang Mountains west of Beijing. Along with “House of Steps”, it is one of two projects we have recently undertaken in Junxiang Village. Relative to the location of “House of Steps”, the original site could be described as chaotic. The site, a yard, is nestled within a narrow hutong no more than 2 meters in width. The scale of the entire site is 9 meters x 20 meters. Several existing buildings and structures inhabited and filled the yard. A building to the west measured just 2.4 meters. The closest distance between buildings was less than 1 meter. When in the yard one could experience something like walking through several small “passages”; all buildings isolated from one another. The original conditions were far from what could be described as a comfortable place to live.Save this picture!main entrance. Image © Zhi ChengSave this picture!the first scene after entering the yard in summer. Image © Yumeng ZhuAn open space within the yard was used as a vegetable garden, continuously maintained by relatives of the client who still resided in the village. A variety of plants grew there, and enveloped the site, vines following the temperate structure above. Although the existing situation was terrible, upon first visiting the site we still found ourselves attracted by the low buildings and plants, and the space formed by their relationship.Save this picture!in the yard, looking to the north building. Image © Yumeng ZhuThe primary structure of the original yard is made up of three primary buildings and a cellar. All were built during either the early, middle, or late 20th century. Our client used to live there together with her grandparents. Although not good examples of traditional buildings, or even in good shape, those buildings are kind of treasure to client, because the trace of memory carried by them. So the principle of the renovation was to keep the existing form, color, and material of the site in order for others to receive the experiences of the past, within a modern context. In this way, it is a kind of coming back to an “ancestral homestead”. Plants everywhere create different scenes in different seasons, the little ecosystem bringing unique feelings through watching, smelling, hearing, touching, and even tasting. Keeping this “garden” was another important aim for the renovation.Save this picture!dining room in the passage. Image © Yumeng ZhuSave this picture!perspective sectionSave this picture!dinning room and the view of yard reflect from mirror. Image © Zhi ChengThe three primary buildings and cellar were all retained. The new buildings and structures are placed in between, and play a role as “connectors”, in addition to providing additional rooms and space. The original isolated nature of the existing buildings faded away and they were transformed into a connected “belt” type space. Bedrooms are located at the ends of the yard, while the “passage” between them next to the garden became public space. In this way, renovation can be seen as a kind of reconnecting. A new passage was also created for the ancient cellar, by using a hidden door accessed underneath a cushioned sitting area in the kitchen. After 30 years, the generous cellar could be used again, as a wine cellar, for food storage, or a secret children’s hideout.Save this picture!in the cellar, the brick archs and lights in the corner. Image © Zhi ChengSave this picture!sectionSave this picture!in the old cellar. Image © Yumeng ZhuThe dinning room inhabited the old west building, still keeping a width of only 2.4 meters. A fixed cushioned seating area was installed along the western wall. A full sized mirror was placed between the seating area and a shelf installed on top of the wall. The eastern facade was transformed into a large glass wall, and inside and outside become one. Because of the glass wall and mirror, there is an illusion as to the scale of the space, and 2.4 meters becomes 18 meters.Save this picture!dinning table. Image © Zhi ChengThe open yard has also benefited from the renovation. According to the section, if we ignore the boundary created by the glass wall, the landscape looks like a valley. Both ends, east and west, are higher, and the central area is lower. We used old elements harvested from the original structures to create pillars, and took a truss made up of small 3cm x 3cm steel tubes and placed it on top of these pillars. Because the steel tubes are small, when vines grow in-between leaves envelope and cover the structure. The plants cause the boundary to blur, in cooperating with the landscape, and the yard becomes an enveloped space. The experience of living in a garden can be recalled and is emphasized.Save this picture!outside the dinning room, the window reflect the view in the yard in winter. Image © Zhi ChengNew “passages” are inhabited by the entrance, kitchen, dining room, and a small living room. As with the originally chaotic feeling carried by the yard in its original state, we wanted to deal with the relationship between old and new in a more ambiguous way. The wall and ceiling have been cut in several places, causing the ancient structures and materials to be exposed. The old, dark, blurry surfaces appear side by side with the new, bright, clear ones. In some places, behind the cutting, hidden spaces are revealed; dark corners full of unique charm. In this situation, “passages” take on the meaning of timeliness. The so called “ancient home” seems to re-present itself.Save this picture!around the entrance, the passage seperate different yards. Image © Yumeng ZhuSave this picture!passage to the kitchen. Image © Yumeng ZhuThe 3 bedrooms which inhabit the corner areas of the yard each provide their own unique experiences according to the character of the original space.The north building originally functioned as the grandparents bedroom, as well as the main room for the yard. We left the space largely untouched in terms of appearance, and instead focused on integrating various new systems, two layer door and windows, a curtain system, and a lighting system. We transformed old doors, which were abundant in the yard, into the structural elements for all lighting on the ceiling.Save this picture!the old window in the north bedroom. Image © Yumeng ZhuSave this picture!the new and old two layers of window. Image © Zhi ChengThe room on the southern end is in the middle between two smaller yards. Two sides of the room, as well as the ceiling of the shower, are all covered by glass. In this way, people can truly feel that they are living within a garden.Save this picture!bedroom between two small gardens. Image © Yumeng ZhuThe eastern building takes up a very small area, which was formerly used as a storage room. The new steel structure lifts up the roof creating a new attic, which plays the role as the third bedroom. Since the building is higher than the outside wall of the yard post renovation, the attic space represents an additional volume on top of the old wall, and becomes a unique characteristic easily noticed by passersby in the small hutong. At night, the lights emanating from the attic act as an additional source of light for the hutong below.Save this picture!sofa at the back of kitchen. Image © Yumeng ZhuSave this picture!the third bedroom is in the loft. Image © Zhi Cheng“Garden” and “Ancestral Homestead”, in the case of “House of Passages”, made up a very complex contextual topic as we tried to understand how we could establish a sense of connection. “Passage” became the carrier for this, and the continuity which we focused on for so long was born from it. However it is still not powerful enough to rule all invisible intentions. Ultimately, we’ve found a new way of thinking via embracing the irrational and chaotic.Save this picture!west window of the loft facing to the yard.

Launching today, it aims to create “a living community around legacy fundraising, for both charities and their supporters.”Built by Minted Box, Charity Intentions aims to celebrate the impact of gifts in wills in a visual way. It features a personalised showreel for each charity and a visual representation of supporters. It also enables fundraisers to gather insight into the reasons why legacy givers care, both with the aim of informing ongoing stewardship and inspiring more fundraising.It tackles one of the challenges of legacy fundraising by enabling charities to say thank you to their future legators, as well as offering additional opportunities to give. At the same time can help fundraisers predict legacy income and see how effective their legacy messages are.

Soviet Red Army soldiers raise the flag on the roof of the Reichstag building in Berlin, May 1945.Seattle — For the third year in a row, at least 500 marchers took to the streets here on May 6 to celebrate the anniversary of the Soviet Union’s defeat of Nazi Germany on May 9, 1945.The event started with a rally at which Soviet war veterans spoke about the need to remember the contributions of the 27 million Soviet citizens killed in the war and the country’s heroic resistance to German fascism. They then walked through the crowd alongside old Soviet GAZ-67s (jeep-type vehicles), receiving red carnations along the way. Over half the crowd held photos of their ancestors with the words “World War 2 Hero.”The song “The Sacred War” played as a woman dressed in a Soviet officer’s uniform called out the battle cry “Ura, tovarishchi!” through a megaphone and the crowd responded “Ura.”Members of Workers World Party in Federal Way, Wash., marched near the front of the crowd with a line of Soviet hammer-and-sickle flags to pay tribute to the socialist struggle against fascism. The crowd sang iconic wartime songs like “Katyusha” and “The Red Army Is the Strongest.”The march came to an end at Seattle Center, next to the Space Needle, where people gathered, took photos and thanked the war heroes. A concert featured traditional Russian folk music and dances.Victory Day in Seattle showed the feelings of pride and sorrow with which Russian-Americans remember the sacrifices made by their families in defeating the fascist threat. It also combated the liberal narrative and fearmongering that establishment politicians in both the Democratic and Republican parties are trying to build against Russia and Russian-Americans.One example of this hostile environment came on March 26 when the Trump administration expelled 60 Russian diplomats and closed the Russian Consulate in Seattle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

We hope this will help to reduce the number of abuses against journalists in Libya, which is still very high.” According to the tally kept by RSF and the LCFP, two journalists have been killed, eight journalists have been physically attacked and two media outlets have been ransacked by state or non-state actors so far this year in Libya. Crimes of violence against journalists usually go unpunished. In a recent press release, RSF urged Libyan journalists to take personal responsibility for their own safety by paying heed to the recommendations in the Safety Guide for JournalistsSafety Guide for Journalists, which RSF and UNESCO updated last December. Created in 2014, theLibyan Centre for Freedom of Press is based in Tripoli. It produces quarterly and annual reports on media freedom violations, organizes campaigns aimed at increasing awareness of the right to provide news and information, and lobbies the Libyan authorities.

It encompasses our joint values of community support and involvement, by supporting access to education and encouraging our students to get involved in their local clubs and voluntary organisations.“The scholarship is an example of how we can positively impact the lives of people in our community when we combine our resources. Through this scholarship, students will receive a variety of supports including financial assistance, academic support and help to attain the highest level in their chosen sport.  I would, therefore, invite all eligible students to apply for this unique scholarship.”Limerick GAA Chairman John Cregan added:“Limerick GAA is delighted with the progress to date of our new partnership with LIT which is benefiting our local communities as well as the GAA. And what better way to support our communities than to assist with access to education while encouraging involvement with local voluntary groups, clubs and organisations.”To apply to the LIT Gaelic Grounds Scholarship programme log on to http://litgaelicgrounds.ie.For further information on LIT and Limerick GAA’s unique relationship and 10-year agreement see:  http://www.lit.ie/News/Item/LIT_Limerick_GAA.aspxThe post LIT and Limerick GAA team up to launch new LIT Gaelic Grounds Scholarship Programme. appeared first on Sporting Limerick.last_img read more
