Here’s why I’m ignoring the Cash ISA and buying the FTSE 100

At the time of writing, the best Cash ISA on the market offers an interest rate of just 1.31%. When compared to the 6% dividend yield on the FTSE 100, this level of income looks hugely disappointing.This higher level of income is just one of the reasons why FTSE 100 stocks could be a better buy than a Cash ISA.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…Cash ISA risksCash ISAs are a great tool you can use to save for the future. However, with interest rates where they are today, it does not make much sense to have a lot of money stashed in one of these tax-efficient wrappers.Over the past decade, the inflation rate in the UK as averaged around 2%. If the rate of inflation returns to this average, savers receiving 1.31% on their money would be left behind.An inflation rate of 2% and an interest rate of 1.31% implies a real (inflation-adjusted) rate of interest of -0.69%. A Cash ISA with a negative real rate of interest does not look like a good investment to me. As a result, while FTSE 100 stocks might look like the riskier proposition right now, from a long-term perspective, they could be the far better option. Indeed, for the three decades to the beginning of March 2020, the FTSE 100 had produced an average annual return of around 9%.This annual return isn’t guaranteed, but stocks tend to rise in line with economic growth over the long run.They are also an excellent hedge against inflation. Companies can increase prices in line with rising costs, which pushes up earnings and, potentially, dividend income.Meanwhile, cash investors have to hope interest rates go up. As we’ve seen over the past decade, that is unlikely in the near term.International diversificationAnother benefit of owning the Footsie 100 over a Cash ISA is the international diversification the index provides.Around 70% of the index’s profits come from outside the UK. This means that even if the UK economy stutters, as long as global growth continues, the blue-chip index should continue to provide a positive return for investors.That means a partial hedge against any negative economic fallout from Brexit.Look to the long termSo overall, while stocks might look like a riskier proposition than a Cash ISA at the moment, over the next three to five years, the FTSE 100 could be the better investment.Company earnings should return to grow the next year when the coronavirus outbreak is under control. Over the following few years, earning should grow steadily.On the other hand, there’s no telling when interest rates will rise again. Savers could be looking at another 10 years of near-zero interest rates. If inflation returns to its long term average, it could result in a reduction in the purchasing power of your hard-earned money.Not only does the FTSE 100 offer some protection against the scourge of inflation, but it also has international diversification, and there’s the potential for a 6% dividend yield when the economy returns to normal again. Here’s why I’m ignoring the Cash ISA and buying the FTSE 100 Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Moriviví House: The Hurricane-Proof Project that Builds Community

By on June 17, 2021

first_imgArchDaily Moriviví House: The Hurricane-Proof Project that Builds CommunitySave this projectSaveMoriviví House: The Hurricane-Proof Project that Builds Community Save this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsWritten by Diego Hernández Share Moriviví House: The Hurricane-Proof Project that Builds Community Copy+ 16House Moroviví, designed by Marvel Architects, is a culturally-sensitive, readily-adaptable home that provides residents with physical and psychological comfort before, during and after natural disasters occur. Designed to maximize structural stability yet minimize energy and water usage, it is built with local components that promote ease of assembly, leave space for creative expansion and foster ownership by way of customization. These materials and their integration support local manufacturers and tradesmen, and the simplicity of their assembly encourages homeowners and neighbors to work together on the construction of their neighborhood.Save this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsRecommended ProductsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeThe Problem In 2017, Hurricane María uncovered a series of problems and opportunities in Puerto Rico: The overdependency on existing utilities, on fossil fuels for energy, and on a bankrupt government for the promotion of social housing The failure of low cost, non-compliant informal construction The underutilization of plentiful resources such as sunlight, wind, and water The value of collaboration & community interaction in a time of crisis The value of passive design strategies ubiquitous in traditional architecture  Save this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsThe ChallengeThe aim of this proposal is to produce a minimal, ecologically-sensitive, and resistant alternative to post-disaster housing solutions. An open-source design for an expandable ‘starter’ house that could be self-built, that would meet current building codes, would minimize waste products, and demonstrate resiliency at different scales (house-site-community-economy).The result is a simple and accessible structure that, like the Moriviví (Mimosa pudica), also known as sensitive plant, opens its leaves to the sun and closes them when exposed to external stimuli. A home that provides physical and psychological comfort before, during, and after a natural disaster occurs.Save this picture!SketchModularityThe 53 square meter house consists of two principal spaces conjoined by a functional core for the kitchen, bathroom, and infrastructure.  A basic module dictates the plan and elevations, establishing the dimensions for concrete formwork, exterior envelope panels, and screening elements.  Using repetitive modular units that are light and manageable helps reduce material & labor costs while minimizing the need for specialized equipment and tools.  Save this picture!Modualarity and Structural SimmetryPassive strategiesTaking cues from tropical architecture, a narrow footprint and highly permeable facades guarantee constant exposure to light and air.  Modular wood screens with operable shutters function as awnings to provide shade and generous amounts of cross-ventilation.  Elevating the structure on posts minimizes disturbance of the natural terrain and places the house above flood level.  The elevated slab also helps to mitigate wind pressure on exterior walls.  SystemsActive systems and low-consumption equipment complement passive strategies to conserve resources and minimize reliance on public utilities:  Cisterns for potable water & rainwater collection – 800 liters PV System providing 12kWh daily  Low-energy/water consumption appliances & fixtures Gas infrastructure for stove and, if desired, for clothes dryer Save this picture!Construction Sequence DiagramSite & Landscape Strategies extend beyond the house to site-wide systems for temperature control, food production, and water management.  A rain garden cools incoming breezes and prevents flooding.  Fruit trees shade the sunnier side, while storm-resistant tubers are located on the opposite yard.  Priority is given to native plants that require minimal watering, support each other, and repel insects, minimizing the need for intensive maintenance and pesticides.  Save this picture!Section – Sustainability Passive DesignMaterials, means & methods Concrete and wood are the predominant building materials for residential construction in Puerto Rico, valued for their availability & durability.  The house’s foundations and elevated floor slab are made of reinforced concrete.  Both the excavation and concrete mixes can be done with hand tools or simple equipment. Structural concrete insulated panels for the walls and roof are easy to carry, install, and reinforce with wire mesh and pliers.  Their final concrete cover can be hand-troweled or sprayed-on. Wood screens are assembled out of treated lumber and plywood using simple screw connections and galvanized steel connector plates. All conduit and piping are exposed to facilitate installation and future maintenance.  Save this picture!Wood Shutters DetailSave this picture!Wood Shutters Operation sketchDurability The house’s location in the Caribbean makes it susceptible to both earthquakes and hurricanes.  The design relies on simple rectangular geometry, symmetrical organization around a central core, and shear walls to guarantee its resistance to both.  From the roof to foundations, the house is tied down and rigidly interconnected.  In case of severe weather, the wood screen façade can be closed, its operable panels acting as storm shutters to protect its occupants.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsFormal & Functional variationsThe house’s simple distribution & reliance on local building techniques facilitates further modifications or expansions.  Although developed for Puerto Rico, the design will work in localities with different building traditions.  Solid walls could be made of concrete block, clay bricks, or compacted earth.  Screens and shutters could be made of bamboo, woven lattices, or corrugated metal.  The floor could be stone over an elevated earth pad.  Save this picture!Formal VariationsThe design can be adapted to include non-residential uses, such as home businesses or community support facilities.  Flexible spaces recognize the potential of informal economies to create jobs and foster the exchange of goods and services within the immediate community.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsSave this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsSociability, CommunityThe design recognizes that privacy, sociability, and community collaboration are extremely important in a time of crisis.  Porches extend the interior living areas to become a key component to promote community interaction.  Infiltration basins and interconnected walkways provide a flood-resistant network for sharing comfort and resources, providing gathering areas to tie a collection of homes into a thriving community. Save this picture!Ecological and Social Resilience SkecthSave this picture!Public Space Design to FloodSave this picture!Courtesy of Marvel ArchitectsArchitectsMarvel ArchitectsLocationPuerto RicoTeamJonathan Marvel, Jose R.

The peninsula south of San Francisco is dotted with suburban towns and villages in the hills and valleys along the west side of the bay. Nestled amidst the hilly neighborhoods is a rare 2-acre site. Seeking a sun-filled property that afforded privacy and the opportunity to spread out, the clients were happy to secure such an accommodating piece of peninsula property. The abundance of flat land meant that the site would be able to accommodate a house and support structures with plenty of space leftover for the development of both active and passive landscapes. “The program for the house was quite complicated,” notes Richard Beard, lead architect for the project and founder of Richard Beard Architects. “It required clever compositional moves to accommodate everything the clients wanted.Save this picture!© Paul DyerSave this picture!© Paul DyerWhile designed for easy and casual living on a day-to-day basis, it had to provide a generous entertaining space, office, fitness room, and guest quarters—all while maintaining privacy for everyone.” The house needed to be elegant yet functional, a family-friendly home that simultaneously conveyed permanence, comfort, luxury, tradition, and modernity. The challenge was how to weave these seemingly disparate notions together as a holistic solution. The answer was to create a house that functioned as a strong yet neutral armature and that relied upon traditional proportions and materials. The interiors could then serve as an elegant counterpoint, animating the spaces as desired.Save this picture!© Paul DyerA series of stone-clad, linked structures and walls define the property, helping to break down the overall scale of the roughly 12,000-square-foot house. Spaces between structures become a suite of exterior courtyards. The stone, dry-stacked and featuring a raw cleft face, provides a sense of permanence and privacy to the property.Save this picture!© Paul DyerSave this picture!© Paul DyerThe house unfolds as a series of layers, which physically and metaphorically signals the journey from public to private life. The path is marked by a series of walls and courtyards, beginning at the street, that leads to the auto court and entry structure, and finally the interiors of the house itself. Leaving the auto court and crossing a water feature, guests pass through a portal into a loggia adjoining a courtyard and reflecting pool. On-axis is the front door, offering the first glimpse of the home’s interiors. The steel and glass entry reveals the interior of the home, where a grand, curving staircase rises in front of another reflecting pool and the rear yard. Inside the home, classical proportions were pushed, pulled, and stretched to create a unique language of profiles.Save this picture!© Paul DyerThe exterior stone walls slip inside the house and into the entry before transitioning into a mix of limestone (walls and floors), wood, and plaster. Subtle differences in the limestone finish (honed for interior, brushed for exterior) help unify interior and exterior spaces. Large steel-framed windows and western red cedar beams add scale to the interior spaces. The simple approach to major interior finishes provides a sense of calm and scale to the house while furnishings provide touches of comfort. “The homeowners’ main concern was always about going too modern and mine was about staying too traditional,” interior designer Kelly Hohla shares. “I wanted them to have an updated home that feels timeless and that they can grow in—I think we were able to strike the perfect balance.”Save this picture!© Paul DyerSave this picture!© Paul DyerShared gathering spaces dominate the first floor (living room, dining room, kitchen, and so on), each providing access to the exterior. The second floor includes a zone that’s exclusively for kids. It’s distinct and apart from the parents, but not so far as to prove inconvenient. There’s also a generous and light-filled playroom just off the backstair that becomes a world apart, containing a proscenium and stage. Outside, the grounds offer a mix of formal and informal spaces, including a putting green, water features, and a separate, free-standing 1,000-square-foot pool house. The pool house, clad entirely in cedar, serves double duty as a guest house. The house defies simple definition; rather, its eclecticism provides an aesthetic that’s neither too formal nor too casual—the perfect solution for contemporary family living.Save this picture!© Paul DyerProject gallerySee allShow lessA Classic Guide to England’s CathedralsArticlesMuscat’s Marsa Plaza / ACMESelected Projects Share Lutsko Associates Photographs Year: last_img read more

Soon after the start of the uprising, she began working as a citizen-journalist for the Media Centre, an ad hoc organization created to cover events in the east of the country. She soon went on to work for radio Benghazi Mahali, presenting reports on the humanitarian situation, and then Shabab Libya FM, where she covered the situation of women and hosted a very popular programme called Isma’una (Listen to us), the first to talk openly about the abuses being committed by the militias. Its reports linking armed groups to egregious human rights violations led to a major demonstration on 21 September 2012 called “Save Benghazi.” The resulting threats of death or abduction were too much even for Mqawab and her commitment to journalism and political activism.

Credit unions are owned by members and should be allowed to give their customers a mortgage.“It will be modest houses from here on in. The economy will be ill for a time to come. This is a problem we thought they only talked about in Third World countries, not in this country. Someone took their eye off the ball,” he declared.Independent councillor Richard O’Donoghue called for the council to carry out an audit of its properties in the district to identify units that can be used to alleviate the problem.He said there were hundreds of vacant properties available to the council throughout the county. There were people with social housing units not living in them and he called for the local authority to seek utility bills from occupiers when investigating this.Describing the crisis like “something out of the 1930s”, Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien said it was “criminal” that there were empty houses on main streets across the county when people have to sleep homeless. He suggested that tax incentives be introduced to entice property owners to renovate vacant houses.Fine Gael councillor Stephen Keary maintained that many county towns were falling into dereliction and schemes to help solve this problem were not forthcoming.“Incoming ministers need to propose incentives,” he suggested.Fine Gael councillor Adam TeskeyCllr Adam Teskey (FG), who was attending his first Adare-Rathkeale meeting after his recent co-option, agreed that tax incentives were needed to entice property owners to renovate unused housing units. He also called on the local authority to reassess the incomes of people living in social housing.“I have met people in social housing with better jobs than myself,” the 26-year-old car salesman claimed.District director Caroline Curley responded: “Once you get a council house, you have a house for life. The rent is revised depending on your income. We do not penalise you for improving yourself.”“They are earning more than I am. How long has that policy been in place? Cllr Teskey asked.“Since Moses was a boy scout,” Cllr Sheahan answered.by Alan [email protected] Printcenter_img Email New mayor wants to replace Brown Thomas with a fountain Pedestrian crossing falls ‘out of the sky’ in Pallaskenry Ballyneety Community Development Association (BCDA) ‘Sod turning’ held on June 12 Rathkeale fundraiser for vital Cancer services Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisementlast_img read more
