Although he admitted the pair occasionally shared hotel rooms during the general election campaign, Hague said: “[Christopher] is easily qualified for the job he holds. Any suggestion that his appointment was due to an improper relationship between us is utterly false.” The foreign secretary also revealed he and his wife have suffered multiple miscarriages and are still grieving the loss of a pregnancy this summer. His rebuttal followed inquiries by a Sunday newspaper and claims on the Guido Fawkes website. Hague insisted he had a strong relationship with wife Ffion.

What next? Rachael FitzGerald-Finch owns shares in Royal Dutch Shell and BP. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Oil prices crashed over 30% on Monday morning, dragging the shares of FTSE 100 constituents BP (LSE: BP) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) up to 26% lower than the previous day’s trading.Saudi Arabia is countering Russia’s refusal to decrease production by swamping oil markets with discounted Saudi crude. Oil producers are suffering the fallout with reduced revenues that threaten profits.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…Bleak outlook for oilThe short-term outlook for oil markets is bleak, and many analysts believe that prices will remain under pressure.As of 9th March, Brent Crude and West Texas Intermediate – the two oil benchmarks – were trading for $35 and $33 per barrel respectively. For perspective, the benchmarks were trading at an average of $64 and $57 per barrel throughout 2019.To make matters worse, lower travel and industrial activity are reducing oil imports into China. BP’s CFO has warned that the outbreak of COVID-19 alone could knock 0.5% off oil demand this year. And if geopolitical tensions continue, this will likely get worse.To understand the possible impact on the shares of FTSE 100 oil producers, I think it’s worth looking at how and why markets previously reacted to the decline in 2019 profits for BP and Shell.Declining revenues for FTSE 100 oil majorsBoth FTSE 100 companies saw a large drop in profits in 2019, mainly due to lower oil prices than previous years. However, BP’s share price remained steady around 470p after its results were released in early February 2020. Shell’s share price continued to slide from a January pre-result peak of around 2,300p.Throughout 2019, I believe BP showed a more resilient financial performance than Shell. BP’s revenues fell 7% compared with Shell’s 11%. BP stated that its industry metric, the underlying replacement cost profit, nosedived 21% to $10 billion. Shell’s equivalent measure, the current cost of supplies, plummeted 23% to $16.5 billion. BP and Shell have both made costly purchases. BP bought US shale assets from BHP Group in 2018 for $10.5 billion, and Shell purchased BG Group for $50 billion in 2016. Both FTSE 100 firms increased their debt to do so. However, both companies maintained their gearing ratios between 29 and 31%, within normal range for the industry. Also, in BP’s favour is the lower breakeven cost of $53 per barrel, compared with Shell’s $65 per barrel. This potentially leaves BP in a stronger position through an oil glut.Juicy dividend yieldsDespite lower revenues, BP’s 2019 was able to fund its capital expenditure, pay dividends and complete its share buyback programme. This allows the firm to use future cashflows for its 8% adjusted dividend yield, to pay debt or for investment purposes.Shell’s position is more uncertain as its cashflow struggled to cover its costs in 2019. Going forward, many analysts believe it is unlikely to return to investors the remaining $10 billion in its buyback programme. But it appears to be a common consensus that Shell will likely maintain its juicy 9% adjusted dividend yield.BP is currently trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of 21.1, while Shell appears to be going cheap at around 8.9. BP is in normal industry range, reflecting its more assured position moving forward. Short term, Shell is a riskier investment. But for those with a longer term or income focus, it could be a timely one. See all posts by Rachael FitzGerald-Finch Enter Your Email Addresslast_img read more

How I plan to create a passive income for retirement

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Andy Ross | Wednesday, 18th March, 2020 See all posts by Andy Ross Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Even though the government is keen to keep increasing the State Pension (it will rise 3.9% from 6 April), you’d still be better off if you could create an independent passive income for retirement. In my view, the State Pension won’t provide a comfortable retirement, putting the onus on an investor to have their own additional income when they stop working. Long-term focusSo where do you start? Unless you’re approaching retirement in the next few years, having a long-term view is going to be a key consideration.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…One of the many advantages of adopting a long-term mindset is it allows you to see beyond what are hopefully short-term problems such as the coronavirus. In 10 years’ time, will the coronavirus still be hitting company profits? Almost certainly not. And if it is, there’ll be bigger problems than the stock market to worry about.Another advantage of a long-term view is it allows you to invest when stock markets dip – as is happening now – without panicking about where they’ll be in one, three or six months’ time. Instead, you can focus on where the stock market will be in five or more years. This perspective makes it easier to make rational decisions.Careful diversificationThere’s a balance to be struck when it comes to diversifying an investment portfolio. On the one hand, diversification reduces risk. If you don’t have a lot of experience or understanding of the stock market, it’s certainly the safer option. But many top investors warn against over-diversification. Warren Buffett is a classic example. He argues for those who know what they’re doing, being overly diversified limits gains and decreases your knowledge of specific stocks and sectors. Fund managers such as Nick Train, who runs the Lindsell Train investment funds, likewise tends to invest in fewer shares than most other professional fund managers. His returns are often much better.This is because having a concentrated portfolio allows each company to contribute more to the performance of the portfolio, rather than acting like an index tracker. It has the added benefit that trading costs are likely to be lower as you buy and sell fewer shares. It doesn’t mean you should just buy one or two shares, but you don’t need 40 different shares in your portfolio either!Focus on dividends and reinvestingThe third aspect worth focusing on is the wealth-enhancing power of dividends. By investing in dividend-paying companies, you as an investor receive an income from profits. Over time, this income can be used to buy more shares and this reinvesting becomes a virtuous circle. How so? You receive more dividends, you buy more shares and those additional shares provide more income. Year-on-year you benefit from what’s known as compounding. This helps a shares portfolio grow fast.These are three steps in my plan to save and invest my way to a richer more fulfilling retirement. Sometimes the best plans aren’t complicated. The tricky part is having the patience and perseverance to make it happen. If you can make it happen though, and live off a passive income in retirement, you’ll realise it’s definitely worth it.

AD Classics: AD Classics: Casa Batlló / Antoni Gaudí

first_imgAD Classics: AD Classics: Casa Batlló / Antoni GaudíSave this projectSaveAD Classics: AD Classics: Casa Batlló / Antoni Gaudí Copy+ 15Houses•Barcelona, Spain Manufacturers: Parquets NadalText description provided by the architects. The inspiring imagination of Antoni Gaudí undoubtedly reveals itself in one of his most poetic and artistic designs for a building, Casa Batlló. His synthesis of animal shapes, vine-like curves, hints of bone and skeleton, and his use of lustrous colored bits of glazed ceramic and glass create a masterpiece that will forever astonish its observers.Save this picture!via WikipediaHis style encompasses all that defines the Art Nouveau, a School of French decorative artists from the 1890s who took influence from sinuous shapes in plants and nature. Save this picture!via WikipediaHe explored his interests in flowing shapes, patterns and colors in the Casa Batlló, which was designed for the wealthy cotton baron Josep Batlló as a jolting contradiction to the rigid forms that surround it.Save this picture!via WikipediaThe front facade reveals striking textures, colors, and imagery that work together to conjure thoughts of fairytales and phantasmal dreams. The larger sculptural pieces that create the boundaries of the balconies and that frame the entrance resemble bones, suggesting a septum, eyebrows or clavicles, which keep to the anthropomorphic tone. As eyes wander up to the top of Casa Batlló, they are greeted by the dominating reptillian surface of the roof.Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesThe dramatic humpback mound “is clad on one side by armour plating resembling an armadillo’s, while on the other side it is covered with trancedis fragments producing a subtle white-into-orange sheen. Save this picture!© John GillThe spine is dotted with bulbous green and blue vertebrae, suggesting that these might be organisms in themselves, while the flowing lines where roof meets facade are edged with other armatures of saurian bone and joint.”Save this picture!via WikipediaThe creaturesque resemblance is made strikingly apparent at night, when the facade glows and haunts with it’s bone-like skeletal structures and dramatic shadows. Antoni Gaudí worked closely with a textile manufacturer named Josep Maria Jujol who assisted primarily in the ornamentation and use of color on the surface treatments.Save this picture!via WikipediaAs can always be anticipated in the works of Gaudí, there is a recurring religious imagery which is achieved almost subliminally. There are embedded and semi-concealed religious images and texts planted in the upper levels of the building, as well as in the small details around the facade. Save this picture!via WikipediaThe very tip of the tower sits one of Gaudí’s signature pieces, a four-pointed transverse cross. Gill suggests that the goal was to point out that “religion can embrace humour, fantasy and the absurd.” It can also be interpreted as a message to God that he was building in His name, instead of for fame or glorification of wealth.Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesGaudí’s state of the art use of central heating, uncommon in the time and place of Barcelona, made air vents and chimneys necessary. He took this as yet another place to expand his talents and imaginations, adding to the fairytale structure and appearance of Casa Batlló. One of the most intriguing aspects of these chimneys are their 45-degree angle departure from the roof before they become vertical.Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesAs an artist and believer in an all-encompassing design, it is unsurprising that the intensity of detail and materiality is not left to the exterior alone. Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesThe interior is perhaps even more detailed and designed, a continuation of the sinuous flowing walls and edges as well as color manipulation and incredible varying of the scale.Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesThe interior is just as alive as it appears from the street; the knobbly spine lines the staircase through flowing wall forms of scale-like surfaces.  The winding and twisting exhibited in the decorative features of doors, frames, peepholes, moldings and screens are all interpretations of the natural forms that inspired Gaudí’s art nouveau style.Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesAs said by Antoni Gaudí himself, “Those who look for the Laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.”Save this picture!© Ignasi de Solá-MoralesProject gallerySee allShow less3x3x3 Taiwan Tower Competition / Broadway Malyan ArchitectsArticlesAtlantic City Holocaust Memorial / Amos Goldreich Architecture + Nekton StudioArticles Share Houses Spain Projects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/90689/ad-classics-casa-batllo-antoni-gaudi Clipboard 1906 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/90689/ad-classics-casa-batllo-antoni-gaudi Clipboard AD Classics: AD Classics: Casa Batlló / Antoni Gaudí “COPY” Architects: Antoni Gaudí Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!via WikipediaWritten by Megan Sveiven Share Photographs:  Wikipedia, Ignasi de Solá-Morales, John Gill Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Year:  Photographs CopyAbout this officeAntoni GaudíOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarcelonaHousingSpainPublished on November 22, 2010Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: AD Classics: Casa Batlló / Antoni Gaudí” 22 Nov 2010.

My year as a Workers World candidate – a commentary

first_imgAlade with lead banner at Philadelphia United Front march, Nov. 7. WW photo:Joe Piette==The year 2020 conjures up a variety of feelings and emotions for people. Some view it as the year of the apocalypse, others have a more optimistic option. Count me in the latter category. I am a completely different person now than I was when the clock struck midnight on Jan. 1, 2020. I am more confident, more politically aware, and more empathetic.The biggest reason for my personal growth is being a candidate for Workers World Party. Even as a liberal, I admired WWP from afar for their commitment to fighting and dismantling all forms of oppression, even if I didn’t agree with their communist praxis (after all, I was under bourgeois indoctrination).  As I evolved as a leftist and looked to take my political awareness to the next level, Workers World Party came to my mind.I was already familiar with Leslie Feinberg and Monica Moorehead who were/are in the party, so it made sense to reach out to them. A member of the Philadelphia branch responded, and in an in-depth conversation I told him about my political evolution since the 2016 election. He in turn told me about his journey. I felt a sort of camaraderie from that first phone call that I never had before in a political context. He then invited me to a branch meeting.At the branch meeting, I was immediately taken by the atmosphere and the environment. The lengths comrades went to in order to ensure that everyone had a voice was phenomenal. I was able to hear input from people from various genders, races and sexualities, which was unlike other organizations I had been a part of where a certain group of people dominated discussions for large blocks of time.This nurturing environment encouraged me to come to more meetings and it also enabled me to find a voice in ways that I’ve never been previously able to. From asking questions to further my understanding of Marxism, to making suggestions to the rest of the branch, I became bolder and more confident.Finding my voiceAn important moment with the party was when I was invited to make a speech as a new candidate of WWP. Having never made a speech of this magnitude before, I was understandably nervous. When it came time to make the speech, the nerves got the best of me and I froze on the spot. I was extremely discouraged with myself for short circuiting at such an important event where the entirety of WWP was in attendance.If it wasn’t for the encouragement of leading comrades from the Philadelphia branch and the party center, I surely would have ruled out the possibility of speaking on a public platform again, but it only inspired me. The conversations I had with them after my failed speech were further indicative of the nurturing, comradely environment the Workers World Party fosters.This has given me the confidence to take a more active role in organizing and protesting. If someone told me this time last year I would be on the front lines protesting against police brutality, bourgeoisie exploitation, and imperialist warfare, I would have doubted you. I was never the type of person who had the moxie to speak out against such injustices that plague our world.That is what happens when you are involved with Workers World. No matter who you are, they will do whatever it takes to help you find your voice. My contributions to the Workers World newspaper have been the culmination of this year of growth. For the longest time, I’ve wanted an avenue to voice my perspective on politics but I didn’t think there was an audience for my views. More to the point, I didn’t think I was much of a writer.Through writing for the WWP newspaper, not only did I realize there was an audience, I was able to become a better and more confident writer. Working under the mentorship of the paper’s managing editors enabled me to express my opinions and views in a mature and cohesive way and there was no better example of that than my article about the #endSARS movement in Nigeria. If not for one ME’s advice, I don’t think the finished product would’ve been as good as it was, but that is what working with amazing comrades does to your abilities.I am astonished as to how far I’ve come as a writer and the newspaper staff made it all possible. As 2020 comes to a close, I can’t wait to discover what 2021 holds. Being a candidate for Workers World Party has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and it would be an honor to be a full-fledged party member in the coming year.Alade is a Nigerian-American.

NCBA Announces 2019 Policy Priorities

first_img Facebook Twitter NCBA Announces 2019 Policy Priorities SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News NCBA Announces 2019 Policy Priorities The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) today released its official Policy Priorities for 2019. The release came as approximately 10,000 members of the cattle industry joined together for its annual convention and NCBA Trade Show, which is being held this week in New Orleans.This year’s Policy Priorities include a mix of familiar and new issues for the industry, and while the group will engage on a wide variety of policy issues (click here to read NCBA’s full policy book) the organization in 2019 will focus on four main issue areas:Fake Meat. NCBA was successful in 2018 in arguing for the U.S. Department of Agriculture to have primary jurisdiction over the inspection and marketing of lab-produced and plant-based fake meat. Now in 2019 the group will work to ensure that a regulatory framework is properly implemented – one that protects the health and wellbeing of consumers, prevents false and deceptive marketing, and ensures a level playing field for real beef products.Trade and Market Access. A perennial issue for U.S. cattle producers, 2019’s priorities on trade will focus on promoting a bilateral trade agreement with Japan, securing swift passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), and expanding access for U.S. beed in key markets like China, the United Kingdom, and the European Union.Dietary Guidelines. The federal government updates its official Dietary Guidelines every five years, and as that process ramps up in 2019, NCBA will work to protect the scientific credibility of Dietary Guidelines and promote accurate information about the nutritional advantages of beef as part of a balanced diet.Regulatory Reform and Implementation. The past two years have brought about significant regulatory relief for beef producers, but much work remains to be done on additional relief and implementing recent reforms. This includes issues such as full implementation of the 2018 Farm Bill, enacting a permanent solution to overly restrictive Hours of Service rules for livestock haulers, finalizing a new water rule to replace the 2015 Waters of the U.S. rule, exempting livestock producers from EPCRA air emissions reporting requirements, modernizing and streamlining the Endangered Species Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and federal grazing regulations, and promoting antimicrobial stewardship by producers and preserving access to key veterinary technologies.“Thanks to the dues-paying members of NCBA and our outstanding team in Washington, D.C., we’ve made a lot of good progress over the past couple of years,” said NCBA President Kevin Kester. “But this is no time to rest on our laurels. There are many policy challenges still facing our producers, and these Policy Priorities will act as our roadmap over the coming year. I’d encourage my fellow producers who are not yet members of NCBA to join us in the important battles ahead.”Source: NCBA News Release By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 31, 2019 Previous articleUPDATED: Chinese Vice Premier Says They Will Purchase 5M Tons of SoybeansNext articleSenate Bills Target Health Insurance Tax Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
