We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees. The top UK dividend shares to buy now The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… I’ve already examined some of my favourite dividend picks in the FTSE 100. And the top London index is usually my first port of call when I’m looking to top up my income portfolio. But I see many UK dividend shares spread across the whole of the stock market that I really would buy today.For long-term income, I think it’s hard to beat a good investment trust. I hold City of London Investment Trust, which I bought on a yield of 5.2%. With the shares having gained a little, that’s now down to 4.8%, but I think it’s still a great yield. City of London heads up the Association of Investment Companies’ list of dividend heroes, having lifted its dividend for 54 years in a row. Others on the list that I’d buy for long-term dividends include Murray Income Trust (47 years of rises, with a 3.8% yield), Merchants Trust (39 years, 5.2% yield) and Schroder Income Growth Fund (25 years, 4%).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…I’ve always considered housebuilders among my favourite UK dividend shares. Investors will mainly think of the big FTSE 100 ones, like Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon. But I see some very attractive dividend yields from FTSE 250 builders. Dividends have been held back by the pandemic, but I expect them to recover. And prior to Covid-19, Redrow shares yielded 5.6% in 2019, Bellway paid 5.1%, and investors pocketed 4.9% from Countryside Properties. Housebuilders might go through some ups and downs, but I see long-term market demand delivering steady cash flow for shareholders.Cash from property rentalSpeaking of housebuilders, the buy-to-let business is a popular one. But it can be risky for small landlords, and plenty can go wrong. That’s why I’d look at Grainger, which bills itself as one of the UK’s largest professional landlords. With a big property portfolio and enjoying economies of scale, Grainger has been growing its dividend. The yield is only around 2% right now, but it’s grown at a compound annual rate of 5.4% for the past decade.Any list of my favourite UK dividend shares has to include the insurance sector. It’s another cyclical one, but insurance can be a top long-term generator of cash. And right now, I like the look of Direct Line, another FTSE 250 stock. Like the rest of the sector, Direct Line had to rein in its 2019 dividend. But we have already seen a return to progressive payments, with a yield of 6.9% paid for 2020.The best UK dividend shares?And while I’m thinking of the financial sector, what about Moneysupermarket.com? The price comparison site has plenty of competition, and not many people have been using it to find the best holidays of late. And the share price has gone pretty much nowhere overall in the past five years (though in a rather volatile way). But the dividend has been growing steadily, and yielded 4.5% for 2020.So are these the best UK dividend shares out there right now? Well, dividends aren’t guaranteed (as we saw last year) and they might have to be reduced. But this is just a look at some potential dividend buys that I have on my shortlist, from some of my favourite sectors. I already own shares in a couple I’ve mentioned, and I’m very likely to add some of the others too.

Brian O’Driscoll and Craig Gilroy big tackles against Wales

first_imgWednesday Feb 6, 2013 Brian O’Driscoll and Craig Gilroy big tackles against Wales Brian O’Driscoll is fast becoming the bookies favourite to captain the Lions on their tour to Australia following Ireland’s 30-22 victory over Wales on Saturday. Young winger Craig Gilroy, who also looks to be a star, could be joining him down under. There was somewhat of a subplot to the Ireland win as O’Driscoll put in yet another Man of the Match performance, impressing fans and experts alike, and raising serious suggestions that he may now be a real contender for the captaincy role on the British & Irish Lions tour of Australia.The 34-year-old set up a Simon Zebo try with a perfectly timed pass, and scored one of his own. He was typically bullish throughout, typified by the hit we see briefly below, where he took on big Ian Evans as Wales launched a full on assault on the tryline.Sam Warburton and Chris Robshaw are the other two players in contention for Lions skipper honours, but if fit and playing well, O’Driscoll’s experience would surely count in his favour. “The big thing is trying to be fit and getting as close to 100 per cent fit as you possibly can when you take to the pitch,” he said post match.“I felt good against Wales, my ankles both felt good, as did all the other bumps and bruises. If you can start games that way you have every chance of putting in a half decent performance.”Craig Gilroy, who has had a good start to Test rugby, made a great hit on Alex Cuthbert just a minute after O’Driscoll’s on Evans. Snubbing out the Wales overlap being the key element in it.“It was a very physical game, real Six Nations stuff which you expect when you come to Cardiff.“It was body-on-the-line stuff and there was a couple of times when guys made key decisions, stopping the ball when they had two or three men overlaps and that’s what you have to do to win tough games,” O’Driscoll added.Who would you pick as captain for the Lions this year?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , Six Nations 2013 Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

It is a plan for a residential area in Toyono-cho, Osaka, built in Showa 42-54 (1967-1979). This Tokiwadai is aging due to the fact that there are many residents living about 40 years ago. However, as a commuter town, it is very popular because it has a green living environment, and recently, renewal including rebuilding is becoming active, and small-scale houses with stores are also increasing.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe site has roads from the north to the south, and you can see abundant mountain forests on the north side. it is a site where you can enjoy a rich environment. We planned to take in a pleasant breeze from the residential area to the forest. A space with a gap between the north and south was planned so that the rich mountain forest landscape could be returned to the residential area. In this gap space, two volumes are attached to create a river-like relationship that leads from the residential area to the forest in a slightly enclosed space.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiOn top of that, it was wrapped in a large roof that floated, making it a home where wind, light and people were invited from the forest to the residential area. A large joinery provided on the road side functions as a weir that connects nature (forest) and population (residential area). By leaving it open, various environments enter the building just as water flows in from the residential area, providing a place for active communication with the neighborhood. Children can run inside and outside, play in the pool or enjoy a barbecue on the large terrace.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiIt is also served as a place for communication with friends and neighbors, and it can also be used as a store for galleries and cafes. On the other hand, if you close a large joinery, people will gather and relax and become a living room that can be used for anything for 24 hours a day. The interior of the two volumes is designed as a living space where the ceiling height is reduced to create a calm space, creating a gap between the forest and the soil, and a lively space can be expected from the calm space. The large roof with an approximately 9m span that wraps around this diverse space is supported by a total of 10 pillars, 5 on the east end and 5 on the west end, ensuring the freedom of space.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe center of the building is a rigid joint of wood using a home connector, combined with a wooden rigid frame that also bears horizontal force using hardware and plywood as a pillar. In addition, by connecting two volumes with three H steels, a frame was created that bears thrust and does not use tie bars. The structure of the frame and architecture is visible to the children, family and visitors as memories of their residence, and the 2F structures are all marked as arawashi. In the future, people’s lifestyles are changing even in this land with the potential for more active renewal housing. Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiI think that it is not possible to support people’s activities only by living where they come home after work and become a base for resting with their families. In addition to creating a living space, there is a need for an architecture that can respond to the activities of people who show various expressions 24 hours a day, and can handle a variety of scenes. I hope this plan will be an architecture that shows the need for a house that can utilize various margins in various ways.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiProject gallerySee allShow lessRestaurant in Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum / KUME SEKKEI Co.Selected ProjectsHEYTEA Foshan Nanhai Vanke Store / UNI DESIGNSelected Projects Share Landscape: Photographs:  Norihito Yamauchi “COPY”last_img read more

With brain tumours being the biggest cancer killer of people under 40 and the second most common childhood cancer after Leukaemia; Fiona felt passionately that more needs to be done in addressing the lack of awareness with regard to brain tumours in the UK.

Shankar, and N. Nagaraj (MTB) have not. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty while hearing on a batch of petition seeking to restrain the Chief Minister and Governor from affirming oath to them into the Council of Ministers said “It is not prima facie established that R Shankar and N Nagaraj have been disqualified under Article 164 (1) (b) and 361(B). We hold that A H Vishwanath, ex-facie attracts disqualification under Article 164 (1) (b) and Article 361 (B).” The bench said “Honourable Chief Minister, while making recommendation to Honourable Governor on nominating Ministers will have to take into consideration the issue of disqualification incurred by A H Vishwanath. Similarly, even if recommendation is made by Honourable CM, the Honorable Governor is bound to consider the aspect of disqualification incurred by A H Vishwanath.” Advocate Prashant Bhushan appearing for petitioner Harisha A.S had alleged that the three respondents are given a back door entry into the Legislative Council with the sole purpose of inducting them into the Council of Ministers even though Vishwanath and Nagaraj had lost in the byelections in their respective Assembly constituencies, after their disqualification. Moreover, Shankar did not contest the Assembly elections, the plea stated. The plea states that to become eligible to be appointed as a Minister, a disqualified member of the Assembly will have to get “re-elected” to the same House during the same period in which he was disqualified, by contesting in an election from the Assembly constituency. The three respondents were “not eligible” to be appointed as Ministers and in politically remunerative posts because of the prohibitions imposed in constitutional provisions and the observations of the apex court of November 13, 2019, which had upheld the order passed the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly in July last year disqualifying them from the Assembly, the plea stated. Advocate General Prabhuling K Navadgi and the respondents had opposed the petition on the grounds that they were filed prematurely. A H Vishwanath, R Shankar and Nagaraj were part of the 17 MLAs who resigned last year leading to the downfall of the JD(S)-Congress government led by H D Kumaraswamy.Shankar belonged to KPJP, Nagaraj to Congress and Vishwanath to JD(S). They were held to the disqualified under the anti-defection law by the Speaker last year and the Supreme Court upheld the disqualification.Vishwanath lost the bye-elections contested on BJP ticket.Click here to read/download the order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
