first_img Jonathan Smith | Monday, 24th May, 2021 Cheap UK dividend shares are a good way for me to be able to get a return from my cash balances. The benefit versus other income-paying investments is that I can target a yield that’s quite high relatively speaking. On the downside, my capital amount is technically at risk, as the share price fluctuates. This means my overall profit could be increased or decreased, irrespective of the dividends I receive.I see this risk as more of an opportunity, especially if I pick stocks that I think look cheap. So if I had £2,000 to invest right now, here’s how I’d look to get the best of both income and capital gains.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…Start with the right priorityTo begin with, I need to decide what’s my ultimate aim. Inevitably I need to tilt my thinking either towards income or growth. In this case I’m focusing on income via UK dividend shares. Any capital gain is a bonus, but not a necessity.This is important because it’s almost impossible to find a stock that’s cheap and could offer large upside, as well as offering an exceptionally high dividend yield. I need to compromise in some way.Once I’ve established what my priority is, I can then funnel down the number of stocks that fit the bill. How can I do this? First, I’d look at the dividend yield of FTSE 100 stocks. I’d cut out those that aren’t paying a dividend, and then filter for a dividend yield I’d be happy with. For example, a yield of 4% and above.Then, to try and find cheap UK dividend shares, I’d look at the price-to-earnings ratio. Although not a perfect gauge of whether a stock is cheap or not, it’s a useful metric to look at. So I might specify the ratio has to be 15 or below.Allocating funds to cheap UK dividend sharesApplying the two filters should allow me to find where I could be allocating my money. For example, SSE and Aviva are two companies that have yields above 4% and P/E ratios below 15.There are several others, so what I’d do is pick between three and six stocks in order to invest my £2,000. I want to diversify my risk, and so wouldn’t allocate it all to only a couple of cheap UK dividend shares.On the flip side, if my filters returned 50 potential companies, I wouldn’t pick them all. I can get the benefit of diversification without needing to invest that many stocks.Once I’ve invested in my portfolio, I do need to continue to keep an eye on it over time. I’m a long-term investor, but I might need to rebalance my holdings in years to come depending on performance. This could include taking profit if I’ve seen strong share price movement, or selling out if a dividend has been reduced or cut.Overall, I think my filters for yield and P/E ratio allow me to find good UK dividend shares that look cheap.

first_imgLeeds (6) 13 Tries: Paul Cons: Jarvis Pens: Jarvis 2Northampton (10) 23 Tries: Myler, Diggin Cons: Myler 2 Pens: Myler 3After an important victory for Leeds Carnegie at home to London Irish last week, their hopes for Premiership survival had been rekindled, but these were soon doused by an efficient Northampton Saints team who looked to struggle very little from the loss of their Six Nations contingent, contrary to much of their recent form. Carrying on their impressive form from the week before, Leeds took an early lead with an Adrian Jarvis penalty, but this lead was not to last long as Leeds full-back Michael Stephenson dropped a kick from Stephen Myler, with Myler himself running on through to capitalise and score a try, before going on to convert.  The rest of the first half played out fairly uneventfully with Jarvis and Myler sharing a penalty apiece as the Saints went into the break 10-6 up. Saints class began to show in the second-half however, and two more Myler penalties took the game beyond a tired looking Leeds side. This lead was then compounded by a neat inside pass from Myler which found Paul Diggin, and the winger had no problem running in his side’s second try, and an epic performance from Myler continued as he converted the try, taking his side’s point tally to 23. Leeds managed to conjure up a consolation try through Danny Paul, and despite Jarvis registering the conversion; his last minute penalty miss meant that Carnegie failed to score themselves a losing bonus point. With Leeds unable to score back-to-back home victories, especially over a Saints side who were on a very poor run of form, it seems difficult to see them managing to fight their way out of the drop zone, and their next fixture away at Sale could seal their fate, unless they record anything other than a win over their relegation rivals.Sunday 13th March 2011 GLOUCESTER, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 27: Gloucester’s Dave Lewis during the Aviva Premiership match between Gloucester and Saracens at Kingsholm Stadium on November 27, 2010 in Gloucester, England. (Photo by Tim Keeton/Getty Images) Rugby World reader Alex Shaw takes a look at this weekend’s LV CUp semi-finals, and the single Aviva Premiership match, which were lost a little in an exciting RBS 6 Nations weekend, but still provided two cracking, and compelling, rugby occasions.LV= Cup Semi-Finals (and Leeds vs. Northampton)Harlequins (13) 20 Tries: Dickson, Brown Cons: Clegg 2 Pens: Clegg 2Newcastle (6) 21 Tries: Gopperth, Tu’ipulotu Cons: Gopperth Pens: Gopperth 3Despite Newcastle Falcons well earned victory over Harlequins a week before at Kingston Park, the trip down to the Stoop had almost everyone predicting a Harlequins victory. However, Newcastle, with a place in the final in their sights, were to prove all their critics wrong in this LV= Cup semi-final. The game started much as expected for Conor O’Shea’s side as Karl Dickson went over for Quins, with Rory Clegg converting, before adding two further penalties, with the Falcons only able to offer two Jimmy Gopperth penalties in resistance as the sides went in 13-6 at the break. Gopperth then went on to convert his own try at the beginning of the second half, levelling the scores, which perhaps belied Quins dominance in the game so far. However, their dominance soon began to tell as Mike Brown dived over to re-take the lead for Quins, before Clegg added the extras. As the game drew to a close though, Gopperth kicked a penalty to keep the Falcons within four points of Quins, before Tane Tu’ipulotu powered over in injury time to make the score 21-20 and complete an exhilarating end to a game which Falcons fans will long remember. With the final against Gloucester just a week away, and their rampant victory over Newport fresh in their minds, the smart money will once again be on the Falcons to lose, but Alan Tait is not one for believing in the odds. If the Falcons can gain parity in the set piece, and half-backs Mickey Young and Gopperth can unleash a backline consisting of talents such as Gcobani Bobo and Alex Tait, then the Falcons can be in contention right up to the 80th minute.Saturday 12th March 2011 Gloucester (17) 45 Tries: Hazell, Fuimaono-Sapolu, Robinson, Sharples 4Cons: Robinson 5Newport Gwent-Dragons (0) 17 Tries: Jones, Brew, Groves Cons: ToveyAn in-form Gloucester hosted the Newport Gwent-Dragons in the second LV= Cup semi-final, with the winner facing the Newcastle Falcons in a week at Franklin’s Gardens. Despite the Dragons owning the accolade of being the only Welsh region to have made it past the group stages of any cup competition this season, they were to be no match for a free-scoring Gloucester. The first half was a distinctly one-sided affair, with Gloucester going into the break 17-0 up, thanks to tries from Andy Hazell, Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu and Nicky Robinson, with Robinson adding a sole conversion.  Although Gloucester seemed to switch off defensively after the break, and conceded tries to Adam Rhys Jones, Aled Brew and Jevon Groves, the second-half could best be described as the Charlie Sharples show, the winger crossing the line four times to ensure the game was well out of reach for the Dragons. Though it would be unfair to attribute no praise to the Newport offence, who began to look far more clinical in the second-half, Gloucester’s defensive frailties will have worried coach Bryan Redpath, and taken the shine off of what could have been a very pleasing win for the Scotsman. Although they go into next week’s final against Newcastle as clear favourites, Gloucester should take nothing for granted, especially in a week where the mighty French were humbled by the Italians, and will have to ensure they do the basics well before they even think about trying to exhibit their arguably more proficient brand of skilful running rugby. No matter who comes out on top next week at Twickenham, we can be assured of an exciting game from two teams determined to bring home the first silverware of the season, and will leave everything they have out on the pitch.

first_img Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Congolese refugees Jeanine Balezi, an intensive-case manager for Refugee Focus, left, and Namughisha Nashimwe, pose for a photo in Nashimwe’s apartment in Tucson. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Tucson, Arizona] Peace and security that let them close their eyes and sleep at night; the ability to work and provide for their families: These are the things that female refugees – most of them single mothers – say changed most dramatically in their lives after they were resettled in Tucson.“I’m really doing much better here. There’s food on the table. The kids are in school. I have clean water, milk and, most of all, peace,” said Murorunkwere Zaburiya, 58. “I can sleep in quiet.”A Congolese refugee, Zaburiya arrived in Tucson seven months ago with five children, aged 10 to 26, after spending 18 years in a refugee camp in Rwanda.Illiterate and not speaking a word of English, she became a member of a women’s empowerment group operated by Refugee Focus, which receives support from Episcopal Migration Ministries through funding from the United States government’s Office of Refugee Resettlement.Today, Zaburiya has learned the skills necessary to hold a job. Through English as a Second Language courses, she is beginning to recognize English words. And her children are receiving an education.Women learn basic math skills during a morning training workshop at Refugee Focus’s office in downtown Tucson. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSThrough Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Episcopal Church partners with 30 resettlement affiliates in 26 dioceses nationwide. It is one of nine agencies working in partnership with the U.S. Department of State to welcome and resettle refugees to the United States.“Episcopal Migration Ministries is part of this really wonderful, humanitarian program that allows some of the most vulnerable people in the world to start rebuilding their lives,” said Nicolle Trudeau, Refugee Focus’s director, during an interview with Episcopal News Service in her downtown Tucson office. About half of the 300 refugees served annually by Refugee Focus come through Episcopal Migration Ministries.In 2014, the Episcopal Church and its partners worked to resettle 5,155 of the tens of thousands of refugees who came to the United States through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ (UNHCR) screening process. They’ll work to serve as many people this year as the United States plans to resettle 70,000 refugees — half of the 1 percent of the 15.5 million refugees worldwide who’ll be resettled this year.Many of those refugees will come from the Democratic Republic of Congo.Since 1998, more than 5.5 million people have died in the Congo from fighting, disease and malnutrition; 2.5 million people have been internally displaced; and some 500,000 have fled the country’s protracted conflict, with the vast majority living in refugee camps in the Great Lakes and Horn of Africa regions.Over the next several years, UNHCR plans to resettle 50,000 refugees from the Congo, with 70 to 90 percent to be resettled to the United States, said Kurt Bonz, Episcopal Migration Ministries’ program manager, during a recent webinar hosted by the Episcopal Church aimed at educating the faith community about the situation in the Congo and how to support and advocate for Congolese refugees.“Most of the refugees have been in camps an average of 20 years, education is low, and many are single women with children who continue to experience trauma related to living in the Congo, the journey out and living in a refugee camp,” he said.Ongoing armed conflict has been particularly brutal in the Congo; the number of Congolese women-at-risk is double that found in other refugee populations. This has led to studies aimed at identifying particular risks, challenges and strengths and developing strategies for policymakers and service providers to better serve the women and their families.A refugee is someone who has fled their country of nationality and its protection because of a “well-founded fear of persecution” based on race, religion, ethnicity, political or social affiliation. Among female refugees considered “women-at-risk,” most have endured rape and other forms of gender-related sexual violence, with many giving birth to children conceived as a result of rape.Upon arriving in the United States, refugees receive three months of case management and financial support to help them adjust, plus additional support to help them find employment and reach financial self-sufficiency. The formula works for some but not all refugees. Programs funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides additional money for resettlement agencies to assist refugees with special challenges – in this case, single women with children.Of the 50,000 Congolese refugees selected for resettlement, the U.S. is expected to resettle 80 percent. Of those, at least 20 percent are expected to be women-at-risk and eligible for intensive case management.Recognizing the need, in 2013, with an $8,000 grant from a nondenominational church, Refugee Focus created its own program aimed at empowering at-risk women. Last year, the program continued with the support from Episcopal Migration Ministries, said Trudeau.Given the elevated rates of violence and trauma endured by Congolese women and their children, it was crucial that this population have the opportunity to be resettled in the United States and have access to a supportive community environment where women could connect with each other to rebuild their support systems, said Trudeau.Refugee Focus’ women’s empowerment program began with a question to the women: What can we do to better serve you? The women responded with, “We do everything as a group; we want to receive services as a group.”The empowerment program’s goals were to create a social network for refugee women, strengthen employable skills through improved English proficiency, encourage economic independence, and promote personal development and financial skills.Through private grants, the women were paid between $300 and $400 in small increments for their participation in the program: attending trainings, attending ESL classes, participating in community events. It counted toward payment if they arrived on time, and their payments were docked if they didn’t.“It turned out to be a wonderful training tool for people who’d never had a job,” said Trudeau. “It gave them a sense of control to earn the money to pay the bills.”The program started with 22 women. In six months, 20 had found employment. “We were so successful, we ran out of people,” she said.More than its measurable factors, the empowerment program provides a lifeline to women who otherwise would be navigating a new way of being, a new country and an unfamiliar city on their own.Namughisha Nashimwe, 41, arrived in Tucson in December 2013, after four years in a refugee camp, with her five children, now aged 5 to 20. Initially, a counselor told her first to take time to recover from her trauma and that, rather than attend school, her eldest son should get a job and support the family.Nashimwe’s peers in the empowerment group and Refugee Focus staff, however, had other advice: They told her that she was capable of working and of providing for her family.“The women helped me a lot. I was motivated by the group,” she said, speaking in Kinyarwanda – the official language of Rwanda – interpreted by Jeanine Balezi, an intensive-case manager for Refugee Focus. “Some people will tell you, you don’t have to go to work. But in talking to others in the group and with Jeanine, I decided I’m going to get a job to help my family to have a better life,” she said during an interview with ENS in her apartment, a 10-15 minute drive from downtown Tucson.Nashimwe works part time as a janitor in a school. Her son is a high school student and recently started a job working weekends at a carwash.“Had she not had a group, she would have been in crisis,” said Trudeau. You cannot make progress when stuck in a crisis mode, and Refugee Focus doesn’t have the money to assist clients in crisis, only to help them toward self-sufficiency, she added.“It is not an easy process, people do come with very real barriers,” Trudeau said, adding that there’s a limit to where funds can take them. “The strength that they used to survive for so many years has to be drawn on here. There’s no safety net for the long term.”Investing in refugees, she continued, is more than just initial resettlement; it’s about developing plans and support that individuals and families can depend on over the many years they struggle to overcome the barriers associated with poverty in the United States.In some ways, the women say, resettlement is like winning the lottery. Still, when a refugee arrives in the United States, the thrill of beginning a new life also brings increased anxiety, isolation and a loss of family and community.“You feel like you are lost and empty, you can’t communicate,” said Balezi, 41, who spent two years in a Congolese refugee camp in Cameroon before coming to Tucson in 2000 with her infant son. He now is 15 and attends high school.Balezi attended a university in the Congo and, besides being fluent in French, speaks at least seven other regional languages. But when she arrived in Tucson, she said, she spoke no English, not even a “hi.”In more than one way, she’s a role model.Through Balezi’s interactions with the women, the love and respect they have for her is obvious. They laugh and joke easily in her presence. But it’s also clear she pushes them to leave their comfort zones – to learn a new bus route or apply for a job – and that they appreciate it.Once a refugee arrives in the United States, things move quickly. From the airport, refugees are driven to their furnished apartment, where staff and volunteers teach them how to operate appliances like the stove and television, the kitchen sink and the shower.The food pantry is stocked, and a culturally appropriate meal – typically rice and beans and chicken, in the case of Congolese refugees – has been prepared for the family.The next day, they’re registered for food stamps. Within a week they’ve applied for a Social Security card. By day 10, the children are enrolled in school.Refugee Focus is working with local partners to landscape this outdoor space for hosting events and so teenagers have a place to hang out. Photo: Refugee FocusRefugee Focus operates on a $1.6 million annual budget with 16 full-time and 10 on-call employees and two full-time AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers. In addition to federal funds, Refugee Focus relies on support from donors, local partners and community volunteers to fund and carry out its programs.Given the Episcopal Church’s role in refugee resettlement, General Convention in 2012 passed legislation calling for the modernization of the nation’s refugee resettlement program to meet the needs of a diverse population.“One of the greatest strengths of the refugee resettlement program is public-private partnership, with private funds and donations complementing federally funded services and support,” said Katherine Conway, immigration and refugee policy analyst for The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations based in Washington, D.C. “Each day the Missionary Society and volunteers engage in the ministry of welcome, but private contributions must be matched by robustly funded services. A volunteer can help to furnish a refugee family’s apartment or provide a winter coat, but he/she cannot counsel a survivor of torture or provide recertification services.”Episcopalians can advocate for refugees by joining the Episcopal Public Policy Network.Tucson, a city with a population of just over half a million people, is served by three refugee-resettlement agencies and becomes home to 1,000 new refugees annually. Work-eligible refugees often fill vacancies in low-wage, unskilled jobs in the servicing industry, washing dishes in restaurants and cleaning hotel rooms; working largely unseen.Refugee Focus’s resettlement work has largely gone unseen, as well. And then, about a year ago, Trudeau moved its offices from a strip mall outside the city’s core to a few blocks from the city’s main bus terminal downtown.Imago Dei Middle School’s student body includes 12 refugees, 11 of them referred through Refugee Focus. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSThe new location has provided visibility both for Refugee Focus and its clients, who often take the bus and then walk to the office on North Stone Avenue across from the main branch of the Pima County Library. It’s also around the corner from Imago Dei Middle School, which provides holistic education aimed at breaking the cycles of poverty to 70 students grades five through eight.Trudeau has developed a strong partnership with the Rev. Anne Sawyer, an Episcopal priest and co-founder and head of the school. The two met through Rotary Club when Trudeau was looking for office space downtown. Later, Trudeau visited the school and began to identify refugee children who would benefit from the school’s intensive, six-day week, 11-month school year, which allows students who may not be at grade level the time and personal attention to catch up.“It’s not unusual for our fifth-grade scholars to come to us at a second- or third-grade level, and, if they are bilingual, they may be at a kindergarten or first-grade level,” said Sawyer.The student body now includes 12 refugees, 11 of them referred through Refugee Focus, said Sawyer.“We see behaviors that indicate life was difficult,” said Sawyer. Refugee students have lost their countries, grown up in refugee camps, sometimes have lost parents and have experienced or witnessed traumas, she said. “At young ages, they have experienced a lot, but that is not [un]like some of our other students who have experienced poverty, as well.”The African students, originally from the Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Malawi or South Africa, say they plan to study medicine, engineering and other professions, and that small class sizes, individual attention and shared language contribute to a comfortable, supportive educational environment.“When I first came here it felt different,” said Emeline, a student originally from the Congo. “I felt like it was my home. We all started speaking Swahili.”Drumming helps trauma survivors to heal and reconnect. Photo: Refugee FocusAnother way in which Refugee Focus has fostered community is through hosting events in partnership with Richard Noell, who uses drumming as a way to help trauma survivors regain confidence and express themselves.Music and drumming help the women reconnect with joy, and it opens them to healing, said Noell.The staff and volunteers who have worked with at-risk women have been “blown away by the amount of strength and perseverance that these women have come with,” said Trudeau.“It’s that difference: When you see a description of someone on paper, a single mother who is maybe a rape victim who has five children and may be pregnant again, coming to the U.S. – How is she going to survive? How is she going to support herself? Her family? And yet we see it happen every day,” said Trudeau.“They come here, and within months they are learning a new language and making sure that their children get to school every day, making sure that they are bathed, and taken care of and fed, and riding a bus for two hours to take an English class and then working a part-time job, perhaps, and learning how to balance those finances, and it doesn’t happen without a system of tight support and services,” she said.“But in large part it’s happening by the strength of the clients we serve, and I think it just goes to show that what somebody is on paper doesn’t really define who they are.”— Lynette Wilson is an Episcopal News Service editor and reporter.

As director of Episcopal Community Services in Arizona for ten years in the 1980s, I was privileged to work with a wonderful group of staff and volunteers who successfully resettled refugees from areas of conflict throughout the world.

first_imgWednesday May 20, 2009 Scott Quinnell’s crossbar challenge – Harlequins Scott Quinnell travels to Harlequins in this edition of the Crossbar Challenge as he hands them the challenge of throwing a rugby ball through the rugby posts from 40m out. There’s been mixed results throughout the season, with Quinnell taking on clubs from around the country, and at times, being shown up by some players you’d least expect it from. Quinnell apparently had a slight injury, but is still leading the overall standings with his mark of 49m. Can anyone from Quins beat the big guy in his self proclaimed speciality? We see dynamic scrumhalf Danny Care with another one of these underarm flicks that never seem to come right. Wing David Strettle shows us his impressive throwing arm, as does big Nick Easter. It’s a bunch of jokers after that though, as Quins show us that their team spirit is good, whereas their throwing arms are, to be frank, pretty damn poor. It’s a good laugh though, with a tiny bit of blood spilled in the process.

The Viadutos Building, designed and built by the architect Artacho Jurado during the 1950s, is a historic landmark in São Paulo. Its imposing implantation in an island resulting from the Plan of Avenues of Prestes Maia, centrally demarcates the visual axis of who transits by the Viaduct Nove de Julho.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoThe apartment in question, in the 18th floor of that building, provides through its terraced area a privileged view of the city downtown. Demolishing all the internal walls of the trimmed original plan was, therefore, an action for which the landscape and the natural light, framed by the original wooden frames, could penetrate the space.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Rafaela NettoTo increase the feeling of amplitude within the 46 m2 of internal area, the division between environments was made through a furniture that floats suspended, without touching the green floor that floods the whole apartment. The timber volume amid the plan has a double function, opening up both to the living room and to the bedroom: while one side is a closet for books and electronics, the other serves as a wardrobe. The concrete countertop functionality also assisted in the organization and space gain,because in it is embedded the laundry utensils, kitchen and the bathroom, separated from those by a mirror suspended on the countertop.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoAs it was the only closed environment and with little incidence of natural light, the bathroom was enveloped by panels of translucent glass instead of masonry. The acid treatment ensures privacy, but also allows the filtered passage of light, both at the daytime coming from the room, as at night, when the internal artificial light transforms it into a large flashlight.This artificial light is emitted by the technical partition between the toilet and the shower, which also concentrates all the hydraulic pipes, facilitating their maintenance if necessary.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoThe tall cabinet in the kitchen is another important element, as it constitutes a second flashlight facing the living room. The other indirect luminaires are also loose from the ceiling, releasing the slab and stripped concrete beams from other visual interferences.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoAlthough the area still be the same, the spatial feeling has been completely transformed, from the small subdivided apartment into a large space. This has only become possible thanks to the adopted strategies of materials unification of the two continuous planes, the epoxy floor below and the concrete ceiling above, the visual integration between environments and the maximum functional utilization of all the elements that compose it.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoProject gallerySee allShow lessDavid Chipperfield Architects Selected to Design Tallest Tower in HamburgUnbuilt ProjectIn-between, Hinoki + Sugi Pavilion / x-studioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:São Paulo, São Paulo, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.
