Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 1st January, 2020 | More on: DGE PRU SMDS “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” If you’re looking for FTSE 100 dividend stocks to buy and hold for the next decade, it’s worth thinking about long-term revenue drivers. Ideally, you want to invest in companies that are set to benefit from powerful long-term trends.With that in mind, here’s a look at three FTSE 100 dividend-paying companies that I believe are well positioned to profit from dominant structural trends over the next 10 years.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…DiageoThe first dividend stock I’d like to highlight is alcoholic beverage champion Diageo (LSE: DGE), which owns an outstanding portfolio of brands including Johnnie Walker, Tanqueray, and Smirnoff.The reason I like Diageo as a long-term buy-and-hold is that the company has significant exposure to the world’s emerging markets. What this means is that the firm is likely to benefit from both rising populations and rising incomes in the years ahead. Indeed, Diageo says that it expects another 550m new legal drinking age consumers across the emerging markets to enter the market by 2030 while it expects an additional 750m consumers to be able to afford international-style spirits by 2030. That’s a considerable number of extra consumers!Diageo isn’t the cheapest stock in the FTSE 100 (forward-looking P/E ratio of around 23) and its yield isn’t that eye-catching either (2.3%). I wouldn’t let these metrics put you off though – this is a high-quality company with a fantastic dividend growth track record.PrudentialNext up, financial services group Prudential (LSE: PRU). What appeals to me about PRU is that, after its recent demerger with M&G, the company is largely focused on the savings and insurance needs of those in Asia.Why is this such a big deal? Simply because incomes across Asia are growing at a rapid rate. Indeed, by 2030, Asia will represent 66% of the global middle-class population, according to projections from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), up from around 54% today. This rise in wealth across Asia is likely to create a strong demand for financial services products such as savings accounts and life insurance.Source: Prudential Prudential shares have been a little out of favour recently due to the trade war situation and the protests in Hong Kong. I think this has created an attractive buying opportunity for long-term investors. Currently, the stock’s forward-looking P/E ratio is just 10, and the prospective yield is about 2.8%.DS SmithFinally, check out sustainable packaging specialist DS Smith (LSE: SMDS). It specialises in manufacturing cardboard boxes (the type Amazon deliveries come in).To my mind, DS Smith looks set to benefit from two powerful trends in the years ahead. Firstly, there’s the growth of e-commerce. These days, more and more consumers are shopping online and this is a trend that looks set to continue. According to Statista, global retail e-commerce sales could climb to $6.5trn by 2023, up from around $3.5trn today. This means that demand for packaging is only likely to increase over time.Secondly, there’s the focus on sustainability. Increasingly, consumers are ditching plastics and looking for sustainable packaging solutions. Given that sustainability is at the heart of DS Smith’s philosophy, I see an attractive long-term growth story here.DS Smith shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 11.2 and offer a prospective yield of a healthy 4.3%. Looking at those metrics, I think the stock offers a lot of value right now. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Dennis offers both back row and second row expertise, which has taken on added importance in light of the absence of the towering Timani.A last minute change sees Brumbies winger Joe Tomane, who’s suffered a syndesmosis injury in his left ankle, has been replaced in the Test line-up by Melbourne Rebels winger Cooper Vuna.Australia v WalesSaturday, 9th June 2012 at Suncorp Stadium, BrisbaneKick-off: 11:00 BST LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – MAY 01: Cooper Vuna runs with the ball during a Melbourne Rebels Super Rugby training session at Visy Park on May 1, 2012 in Melbourne, Australia. (Photo by Robert Prezioso/Getty Images) Late change: Cooper Vuna comes in to replace Brumbies winger Joe TomaneFIVE NEW forwards and three new backs feature in the starting combination, from that beaten 9-6 by Scotland midweek in Newcastle.The alterations in the pack sees the all-New South Wales Waratahs front-row return to duty after not being required to back up from last weekend’s Super Rugby round midweek, while the Queensland Reds second rower Rob Simmons is reinstated for the injured Sitaleki Timani, after making an impact off the bench in Newcastle.The changes mean loosehead prop Benn Robinson makes his first appearance since the record breaking 59-16 win over France that bookended the 2010 Spring Tour, having been forced to miss all of last year’s Test programme due to a knee injury.Fellow prop Sekope Kepu is also back after an injury enforced break, where an eye injury sustained in the Rugby World Cup semi-final ruled him out of the back-to-back Tests against Saturday night’s opponents which ended the 2011 season.Tatafu Polota Nau, who lines up between them at hooker, is one of nine members of the starting XV who also featured during Australia’s 24-18 win over Wales in Cardiff last December.The others are fullback Adam Ashley-Cooper, winger Digby Ioane, flyhalf Berrick Barnes, halfback Will Genia, flankers David Pocock and Scott Higginbotham, and locks Simmons and Nathan Sharpe.The fifth alteration to the forward pack from that which started against Scotland is at the back of the scrum where Wycliff Palu returns at No 8, for what will be just his third Test outing since 2009 after an unfortunate run of injuries.The return of Palu necessitates a  positional change which will see the versatile Queensland Reds loose forward Scott Higginbotham move from No 8, where he featured prominently against Scotland, to the blindside flank.last_img read more

first_imgSo what about that accolade? Did he take offence at being voted the Most Frightening Frenchman by the Sunday Times, which also described him as “the baddest man ever” Cholley laughs at the question. “No, it’s a compliment! It’s true. In some matches I started on the loose-head and then moved across to the other side if our tight-head was having a problem. I would sort out the problem.”Feared: Bobby Windsor said Cholley had a neck like an Aberdeen Angus bullThe days when props resolved their problems without the interference of officials are long gone and Test match rugby has never been cleaner. But Cholley and his generation have no need to apologise for what they did on a rugby field. It was brutal, but it was of its time, and was it anymore brutal than many of the high tackles seen in today’s game? The nature of rugby’s violence has evolved over the decades into something shrewder and arguably more dangerous.Cholley certainly feels no need to atone. “Let me tell you something,” he says. “In life what matters isn’t whether you’re talked about nicely or badly, but just that you’re talked about.” TAGS: Highlight Gerard Cholley was nickednamed as the Master of Menace throughout the Seventies as he dominated in a French scrum of hardmen, he chats to Rugby World about his career Old adversary: Fran Cotton said Cholley ‘was always up to no good’For the first eight years of his rugby career, Cholley packed down his 6ft 4in and 120kg frame in the second-row but in the early 1970s he moved into the front-row. Freakishly strong and ferociously aggressive, Cholley was transformed in his new position from a good club player to a great international. “I just learned on the job,” he says of mastering the technical skills required for a prop. “I was very strong in the back but I also had the flexibility of an athlete. I could do what I wanted with my body and that’s why I inflicted a lot of misery on my opponents.”Cholley won the first of his 31 caps against England at Twickenham in 1975, a match that also saw the first appearance of Jean-Pierre Rives on the flank. It was a winning start to their international careers but it wasn’t until the 1976 Five Nations that Cholley came up against the great Welsh and Pontypool front-row of Graham Price, Bobby Windsor and Charlie Faulkner.It was the penultimate match of that season’s championship, a clash between the two nations that would dominate European rugby for the rest of the decade. “The day before the match I had a fever of 39 degrees,” explains Cholley. “But I really wanted to play against Wales so I stuffed myself full of vitamin C tablets. So I was very pumped up on the day of the match. So pumped up, in fact, that I smashed my fists into the ceiling and part of it fell down on top of Jean-François Imbernon [the France second-row].”Cholley’s first clash with Wales ended in a 19-13 defeat, a victory that secured the Grand Slam for the Welsh. The following season France beat Wales 16-9 on the way to their own clean sweep – which included the win over Scotland in which Cholley knocked out two opponents – but in 1978 Wales were victorious in the Grand Slam decider. “It was a great Welsh team and a great front-row,” reflects Cholley. “Not that that stopped us from trying to give them a good going over. There was a lot of respect between us but at the same time we didn’t give each other any presents!”Playing alongside Cholley in the 1978 defeat to Wales was Guy Noves and Cholley offers a cautious assessment of the task the former wing now faces as national coach. “Noves is trying to build a team for the World Cup so we have to be lenient,” he says. “He’s introduced a lot of young players and, like England, they’re feeling their way. Let’s see what happens in four years.”Cholley played his last Test in 1979 and eight years later Castres honoured his immense contribution to French rugby with a testimonial, attended by several Welsh players. The man with the big right hook also proved he had a heart of similar size by donating all the money raised to a mental health charity. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There is a lot of fiction surrounding Gerard Cholley. But first the facts. He was indeed a former boxer, a former paratrooper and a front-row forward of the highest order. He also frightened a lot of opponents. In 2006 the Sunday Times’ Stephen Jones voted him ‘the most frightening French rugby player of all time’. That’s some accolade, considering Cholley faced competition from the likes of Alain Esteve, aka, ‘the Beast of Beziers’, and Michel Palmie, who once partially blinded a man with a punch.Former England and Lions prop, Fran Cotton, has said of Cholley, that he was “like a huge nightclub bouncer going to work and you couldn’t take your eyes off him for 80 minutes, he was always up to no good”.Yet Cholley was more than just a tyrant to a generation of front-rows, he was also a scrum technician of rare talent. In his autobiography, former Wales and Lions hooker Bobby Windsor picks Cholley as the only Frenchman in his world XV pack selected from players he played with or against. “A fearsome bloke with a neck the size of an Aberdeen Angus bull,” wrote Windsor of the Frenchman he nicknamed ‘the Master of Menace’. “Cholley was a heavyweight boxer who was fond of stopping opponents well inside the distance. He played in the best pack I ever came up against.”The Duke: Bobby Windsor (centre) rated Cholley as one of the greatsThe greatest French prop of all-time? Possibly. The scariest? Definitely. But perhaps it’s that reputation which, down the years, has led to a blending of fact with fiction. It’s said, for example, that he was a heavyweight boxing champion in the French military, and that he came to rugby late in life, after an official from the Castres club saw him dominate a bar-room brawl. The reality, as Cholley explained to Rugby World, is more mundane.He boxed in his adolescence before being called up when he was 18 for his compulsory 18-month National Service, enlisting in the 8th Marine Infantry Parachute Regiment. “In my last month of Service [1965] I went into a café in Castres, which was the seat of the rugby club,” he explains. “At that point in my life I’d never seen a rugby match, never even picked up a ball. The café owner looked at me and said ‘you’re a big lad, you should be playing rugby’.“The following Sunday, I went back to the same café for a coffee after lunch at the [army] canteen and the bus with the reserve team was just about to leave to play an away match. I decided to go with them to watch, and they talked me into playing even though I knew nothing about rugby. But during the match a fight broke out, and, well, I knew a lot about fighting. And I thought, this is the sport for me’.“As it was the last month of my military service, I could do pretty much what I wanted in the evening so the following week I trained every night and on Sunday I played again with the reserve team . Within a fortnight I was playing for the 1st XV.” No shrinking violet: Gerard Cholley was feared throughout rugby for his ‘physical’ game last_img read more

TAGS: Investigation Tool of the trade: Gym weights. (Getty Images) And so we return to the reason for this conversation, and whether we slavishly adhere to certain norms with conditioning. He talks about how skills work should be at the forefront of thinking and considers the make-up of a week in S&C. If we are going to accept that elite rugby players will break down, we may need to look at what we prioritise.Read next: THE EFFECT OF CUMULATIVE RUGBY INJURIES ON RETIRED PLAYERSCandidly, Wenham-Flatt begins: “If I have a glaring mechanical inefficiency when I run, and I run 8,000m in a game, that is going to add up to an inappropriate mechanical load that I need to address.“You can go to some Premiership teams and they’ll be like, ‘Right, we’re going to dedicate X amount of time to strength and power and size’ and then they’ve got guys that run like Phoebe from Friends.“We are programmed to see big, strong powerful players playing Test rugby – and there is a barrier to entry at the very top level, of course – but (having the bulk) just buys you a ticket to the dance. If strength and size were the determining factors of success on the rugby field, the Rugby Championship may as well be the USA, Georgia, Tonga and Samoa. Because they could pick the biggest and strongest.“But it just allows you to provide intensity to the execution of the technical and tactical game plan.”Masters: Wenham-Flatt praises the All Blacks’ skill execution (Getty Images)He says he has had back-and-forths with well-known players, trying to convince them that doubling down on conditioning work or piling into yet another lean-mass building phase is not the answer – and he dearly hopes “the pendulum has swung so far in professional rugby but we’re just realising, ‘Hang on, this is not actually the name of the game’.”Wenham-Flatt is hopeful. There are young stars he knows becoming senior players at big clubs now. Players who he believes were taught the right way, which can only help going forward. Approaches can evolve.Ultimately what holds everything back, he says, is that gym gains are easy to track. It’s what makes a team efficient, a star elusive, a group more likely to click that can be intangible.We all want the easy wins. Could rejigging your strength & conditioning focus offer that?center_img AT THIS point Keir Wenham-Flatt is into his flow. Until recently the athletic performance lead for American Football at The College of William & Mary in Virginia, USA, he still loves talking rugby. And after working in England, with the Pumas at a Rugby World Cup and in Japan with Toshiba Brave Lupus, he has seen some things.We are talking about whether or not rethinking the traditional approach to strength & conditioning in rugby could spare a few more bodies.Putting forth his own question, Wenham-Flatt says: “Is endless running, lifting weights, crushing yourself in the gym, as a stimulus, (ideal for) habituation to the stress of executing a technical, tactical game plan and maintaining high efficiency of skills on the rugby field? Of course not.“If you look at Argentina, we lost 15 in a row in the Rugby Championship before we beat Australia in 2014. And it wasn’t because the strength programme got better. It was because the standard was there, and we had to rise up and we had to get used to that environment. That’s the biggest disconnect that you see, in the understanding of mental toughness and how it’s developed.”Earlier the man who uses ‘Rugby Strength Coach’ as both a social media handle and for his website explains that he believes often coaches and conditioners can equate suffering through sessions as building grit.Read next: CHRONIC PAIN, CANNABIS AND RUGBYConsidering training loads, he uses an analogy: “I say to the boys, ‘Right, how much does that phone cost?’ And they’ll say, ‘$500.’ ‘Okay. So if I was to sell you this phone, how much should you give me for it?“They’d say ‘Well, no more than $500.’ Because that’s what it’s worth. So if you pay me $1,000 for it, are you smart or are you dumb? They’ll say, “I’m dumb!’“Well, if it takes 15 minutes of contact training (to perfect technique) or two sets of back-breaking deadlifts to get strong, and we do 30 minutes, or we do ten sets, are we smart or are we dumb? Does it make me a tough guy if I double the price that I’m paying for a given adaptation?Exciting: Argentina at the 2015 Rugby World Cup (Getty Images)“You see it in Japan more than anywhere. Japan is the comfort blanket for inept coaching. Because when you put a constraint on yourself and say ‘We must get this right in 15 minutes’ it’s actually harder to do. If you don’t give yourself a time then you can say, ‘We’ll get it on the next one, we’ll get it on the next one.’ And in Japan, if you lose, you always want to give yourself the out of saying, ‘But we worked so hard…’”He holds up the Saracens model of training – of backing their athletes to be prepared and efficient enough to achieve the necessary in as little time as possible on the paddock – as a fine example. In Japan he saw the opposite. Giving another analogy, he pictures two high-flying salesmen: one who works 20 hours a week to make £1m of sales, with the other working 60 hours to make £1m of sales.In the States, he says, the salesman doing it in 20 hours would be hailed as a genius for being three times as efficient. In Japan, he concludes, the 60-hour salesman gets the promotion because he worked harder.If you are coaching your team, which do you want to be?The below tweets are about Football, but as we see some unlucky athletes repeatedly pull up with injuries on rugby’s big stages, they are worth consideration.

first_imgMonday May 16, 2016 Samoa come from behind to upset Fiji in epic Paris Sevens Final Samoa upset South Africa then came from behind to beat Fiji in an unbelievable day of Rugby Sevens in Paris on Sunday. Fiji shot out the gates in typical fashion but Samoa somehow turned around a 26-7 deficit to lead 29-26, and hang on in the dying seconds. The victory is Samoa’s first Sevens Series Cup win since December 2012 when they won in Dubai.Fiji, who had fifteens stars Leone Nakaraw and Josua Tuisova playing for them, looked set to increase their lead at the top of the world series standings with yet another series win, however Samoa fought back then Belgium Tuatagaloa made a miracle tackle with time up, as Fiji got withint inches of the line.The remarkable thing about this win is that Fiji thrashed them 42-5 in the pool stages“We wanted to get some pride back and we did that,” said Samoa coach Damian McGrath. “At half time I said if we get the first score we can get back into this. Self belief is a huge thing, and they believed in themselves.”The story of the weekend for the home side was  superstar Virimi Vakatawa, who helped hosts France to third place overall. He continued his fine form, setting up and scoring tries with ease.With just one round remaining, Fiji are still in pole position and look set to claim the overall title in London.

The city of Caxias do Sul, in the southernmost Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, has grown in the 20th century to become in the last 3 decades one of the country´s most important industrial poles (the 2nd largest in the metal-mechanic industry). Population rose from 290.000 to near 500.000, thus becoming the center of the second largest metropolitan area in the state, after the capital, Porto Alegre.Save this picture!Section 1As a consequence of that population growth, middle class families moved gradually to the suburbs, seeking for cheaper land and quality of life. As part of this process, single-family houses gave way to apartment buildings, since the urban legislation was not properly enforced in this area. Most of these apartment buildings were built by developers who are, in fact speculators, not very concerned about architectural quality.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiIn this context, there is Quattro, a small apartment building, approximately 15 Km far from the city centre. The building is located in the bucolic Ana Rech district (a neighborhood that, to this day, strongly echoes the traditions and heritage of Italian immigrants that arrived in that region by the 19th century), in a plot of land of 12x30m, with east-west solar orientation and a slope of about 4m from the front to the back of the lot.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe built area is 890 sqm, and during construction, the architect played the role of not only a designer, but also a developer and constructor, taking advantage of the opportunity to explore possibilities that are different from the conventional ways of the real estate market.Save this picture!Fourth Floor PlanSave this picture!Fifth Floor PlanThe building has six floors, including garage, a small room for common use, and seven apartments. There are three different types of apartments, with areas ranging from 50 to 110 square meters, and innovative floor plans, which are different from the traditional division and make possible for the residents to set their own space distribution, fulfilling several different financial and family requirements.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiFormal solutions are marked by simple lines and pure forms.

Speaking to Live Law, Senior Advocate BA Desai said-“Needless to say, Courts must follow all safety precautions of social distancing, temperature checks etc. But regular public hearings should resume, there can be a system where the hearing itself is curtailed to the duration of submissions and one advocate is allowed inside the courtroom at a time and maybe one representative of the client can be allowed along with him.All High Courts and the Supreme Court are custodians of the rights of citizens. Many High Courts have already started regular hearings. Moreover, virtual hearings may be a handicap for some lawyers, as they may not be comfortable with the technology, especially in lower courts where advocates are better versed in Marathi than English but virtual hearings are conducted in English.”It is stated in the representation-“During the last three and half months, the Bombay High Court in Mumbai and at its benches has been unable to function to its full strength and the temporary solution to this situation by having court hearings through virtual medium of video conferencing is insufficient to meet the vast needs and enormous case load on the justice administration system. Moreover, the current situation is hampering the disposal of pending litigation which is in turn slowing the financial growth and adding to the current economic crisis. Lawyers who are an integral part of the justice administration system are also suffering at this juncture. Because of the limited functioning of courts, the professional incomes of most of the lawyers have been reduced to nil. Lawyers, particularly junior lawyers, are finding it difficult to survive during this time. In addition to that even to function to a limited extent through video conferencing involves a great amount of infrastructure upgradation which involves substantial cost.”It is also contended that other High Courts are leading the way in exploring the option of conducting physical hearings again. As Calcutta High Court’s notification dated June 5, 2020 is “very informative and educating” about how to go ahead and plan this exercise of physical hearings. Delhi High Court, which is closer to Bombay High Court in terms of being in a populated city where the infected and active Covid-19 cases are higher in number, had already started with physical hearings of the cases though the arrangement has been put on a temporary hold at the moment. Calcutta HC, Kerala HC and Madras HC started physical hearings from Monday, July 6, 2020.Moreover, it is imperative in this scenario that the High Court should resume functioning in physical form. With restrictions and elaborate rules for safety of judges, lawyers and the court staff this is possible. The pandemic may take a good time to subside and in these testing times, we as an institution have to adopt the best practices prevalent in other courts to fulfil our noble duty in justice administration, the representation states.Finally, the Chief Justice has been urged to consider allowing resumption of regular physical hearings, regular hearings via video conferencing or a ‘hybrid system’ involving a combination of both virtual and physical hearings-“It was in the news recently that an advocate committed suicide due to financial problems. Some advocates and law firms have vacated their offices as they are unable to pay rents. Instances such as a big percentage of salary being deducted, delay in salary payment, bulk laying off or the looming threat thereof, loss of confidence/aggression of litigants to pursue a matter, and majorly the absolute uncertainty of future prospects, require immediate attention of the Chief Justice.”Click Here To Download LetterNext Storylast_img read more

Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Google+ The statement in full: Dear Sir/Madam,As pro-life doctors in Donegal we refute and take issue with the pro-choice movement’s repeated claims that the 8th Amendment puts the lives of pregnant mothers at risk. This is not the case. As recently as December 12th 2017, the Maternal Death Inquiry (Ireland) found that deaths in Ireland were extremely rare – this would not be the case if doctors were prevented by the 8th Amendment from saving lives. In fact, the Medical Council guidelines in Ireland oblige doctors to act even if that means the baby’s life may be lost. The guidelines state that during pregnancy rare complications can arise where a therapeutic intervention is required which may result in there being little to no hope of the baby surviving. In exceptional circumstances, it may be necessary to terminate the pregnancy to protect the life of the mother while making every effort to preserve the life of the baby. In plain English, that means if a doctor feels that a pregnancy poses a real threat to the woman’s life, even if that threat is not immediate, they may perform a termination of pregnancy, usually by delivering the baby*. In fact, our mortality rates are lower than the UK and USA where abortion is freely available.The pro-choice lobby seems to claim that Mrs Savita Halappanavar died because of the 8th Amendment. Mrs Halappanavar in fact died due to chorioamnionitis and septicaemia which was mismanaged. There were three investigations into her death by HIQA, the HSE and the coroner. All reports concluded that her tragic death was caused by the medical mismanagement of a virulent form of sepsis. The coroner’s inquest found that she died from medical misadventure. No mention was made of the 8th Amendment. Numerous medical personnel concurred with those conclusions.Yours sincerely,- Dr. Micheal Cooke GP – Dr. Murrogh Birmingham GP – Dr. Kevin Bonner GP – Dr. Maureen O’Carroll – Dr. Brian McColgan GP – Dr. Tony Delap GP Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Google+ By News Highland – April 20, 2018 Group of Donegal GPs back ‘No’ Campaign Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Previous articleCavanagh in fight to be ready for championshipNext articleDonegal Together for Yes to officially launch campaign tonight News Highland Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Facebook Twitter Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more
