Tom Rodgers | Monday, 26th October, 2020 | More on: AV GSK “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address A great way to protect myself if I’m facing a low-cash retirement is to buy the best FTSE 100 dividend shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA. A recent survey by Aviva found that more than half of people in mid-life (aged 45 to 64) have never worked out when they can afford to retire.And Covid-19 has clearly made a bad situation worse. Some 29% said they were now less confident in their future than at the start of the pandemic.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…That means every penny invested now could add a vital safety net to my future.How to retire richerI’d say that compounding my cash with the best FTSE 100 dividend shares is an easy way to ensure a happy retirement.A quick caveat: one great year is no good to any of us.If a company is not sufficiently successful, it could pay a huge 10% dividend yield at one point and then nothing the following year.Our job as long-term investors is to find the best FTSE 100 dividend shares we think will keep paying out year after year. Then we can really take advantage of compound interest.I see it as important for me to be doing it via a Stocks and Shares ISA, because any dividends paid to me are free of tax. This is a legitimate and widely-used way to shield my hard-earned cash from the taxman.Working out winnersSo which companies should I choose? How do I pick long-term winners for my Stocks and Shares ISA? I only buy when I’m reasonably confident that the market for a company’s product will persist in times both fair and foul.As Benjamin Franklin famously said: “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” If I could invest in HMRC, I definitely would!I ignore trendy shares, for example in cannabis, drones or high-cost, high-risk mining companies. Instead my favourites are proven FTSE 100 dividend-payers selling insurance, like Aviva, or prescription medications like GlaxoSmithKline. It is vanishingly unlikely that insurance or drug treatments will ever fall out of fashion! As such the GSK dividend of 19p per share per quarter has persisted throughout the pandemic. It looks about as solid as a FTSE 100 dividend share can be.Making it countWhat will this all mean long term? Here’s a quick calculation.A £10,000 investment in the best FTSE 100 dividend shares with a 5% annual yield will bear £500 in my first year.What happens if I use that £500 to buy more shares in the same company and reinvest the dividends? My principal is now £10,500, and if the feat is repeated in year two, my dividend produces not £500 but £525. That’s more free money. I can sit on my hands, do nothing, and these numbers really start adding up.By year three, my FTSE 100 shares will be worth £11,025. And my 5% yield now gives me £551.25 per year.The longer I keep doing this, the more money I get. It’s when investors chop and change their portfolio that the vital process of compound interest is interrupted. But just like a snowball rolling down a hill increases in size and speed, so steady dividend yields help increase the size of my pot. In truth, patience is a vastly underappreciated virtue. And especially so when investing in the best FTSE 100 dividend shares. Can I afford to retire?

Here’s why the Argo Blockchain (ARB) share price is surging

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address The Argo Blockchain (LSE:ARB) share price is back on the rise. After tumbling by 50% between March and April this year, the stock has since started to recover and is now trading at around 181p. What caused this sudden recovery? And should I be adding this business to my portfolio? ARB share price surges on earningsSince the last time I looked at Argo Blockchain, two primary developments have occurred. The first is a signed partnership with Navier Inc. Under this agreement, Navier will be developing a new mining facility for the business in Texas that can support an electrical capacity of up to 200MW. The firms will also be working together in adding new immersion technology that should increase the working lifespan of mining rigs and thus reduce Argo’s maintenance expenses.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…The second development, and seemingly most influential on the ARB share price, is the release of its 2020 full-year results. Given the stock jumped by more than 25% on the news, I think it’s fair to say investors were pleased. And I can see why.The company successfully increased its mining volume by 85%, collecting a total of 2,465 Bitcoin throughout last year. This, in turn, led to revenue more than doubling from £8.6m in 2019 to £19m. And earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) also surged from £1.4m to £7.9m year-on-year. This ultimately led to the business becoming profitable for the first time, with final net income landing at £1.7m versus a loss of £0.7m in 2019.Needless to say, this is incredibly positive news. So seeing the ARB share price surge is not at all surprising to me.The risks that lie aheadWhile 2020 may have been the best-performing year for the business so far, it hasn’t been entirely smooth. Like a traditional mining company, Argo Blockchain has no control over the value of its core assets. And when dealing with Bitcoin, which is notoriously volatile, price fluctuations can substantially impact the business’s profit margins as well as the ARB share price.Another unavoidable threat is the Bitcoin halving process. Never heard of that? Here’s a quick and simplified explanation. For every 210,000 blocks processed by miners, the Bitcoin reward per block is cut in half. This actually happened in May last year, which saw the Bitcoin reward per block drop from 12.5 to 6.25.Consequently, this reduces the yield from the mining process by 50%. And Argo Blockchain’s profit margins fell from 60% in 2019 to 41% in 2020. The last time this happened was in 2016. And given there are far more mining rigs set up today, the next Bitcoin halving will likely occur within less than four years. And naturally, it will once again affect Argo Blockchain’s profit margins unless the Bitcoin price increases sufficiently to compensate.The bottom lineI can’t deny that Argo Blockchain’s performance is impressive. The rising ARB share price is proof of that. But as I’ve explained in other articles, I’m still not personally tempted to invest in this business due to the high level of risk.I believe there are far more promising companies available today that can achieve a higher level of growth. And so, I’m still not adding it to my portfolio.  For example… “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Zaven Boyrazian Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Zaven Boyrazian does not own shares in Argo Blockchain or Bitcoin. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Bitcoin.

The remarkable apartment housing is located in the lowlands of Hveragerði, a small town of about 1,700 inhabitants that lies some 45 km east of Reykjavík, Iceland’s capital. Surrounded by an eminent mountain range to the north, the town is conveniently located on the Ring Road, Iceland’s most important highway. In 2001 PK Arkitektar was invited by the Ministry of Social Affairs to plan a facility for severe handicapped youngsters in Reykjavík. The project demonstrated to be successful and therefore the studio was again commissioned to design a similar building.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe amazing setting for the new house required adjustments and reorganization. From the beginning it was clear to the architects that the task was to create a home rather than simply an institution for handicapped youngsters. The architectural appearance is simplistic and characterized by a sincere and clear composition of two white blocks with different heights and separated by a distribution corridor. The entrance formed by an L-shaped exposed concrete wall, leads to a common lounge connected to a terrace and to the main kitchen of the house. The apartments area and functional spaces are connected by a corridor in the middle of the building which brings natural light in, providing a warm and serene ambience. Save this picture!The five apartments are fully equipped for severe handicapped youngster. They are all 34,5 sqm each, with its own kitchen and bathroom. Tracks inlaid in the ceiling connect the rooms and facilitate transportation of the residents inside the house. The functional rooms on the other side of the corridor consist in a common bathroom, staff quarters, washing room and storage. Save this picture!The plastered white and simple horizontal volumes of the exterior are in contrast to the warm choice of material indoors. Walnut is the main material in the floor and fittings custom designed by the architect. PK Arkitektar is currently working on a wide range of projects in Iceland including several single family houses, summer houses and Höfðatorg, a 80.000sqm mixed-use complex located close to the city center of Reykjavík due to be finalized in the year 2011.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe High Bridge International Ideas CompetitionArticlesBeijing Central Business District / Skidmore, Owings & MerrillArticlesProject locationAddress:Hveragerði, IcelandLocation to be used only as a reference.

At the end of a single lane road cut into a hillside, on a dry west-facing slope near Juliaetta, Idaho, the owners wanted to restore a pioneer vineyard (the first known vineyard in the canyon). Preserving the most ideal land for the vineyard, we located two structures – one above a flood plain, the other perched on a narrow basalt cliff overlooking a spawning pool on the Potlatch River. The owner and guest quarters are housed in one structure and the other is used for special events such as wine tasting.Save this picture!© Jim Van GundyThe site presented a number of challenges: summer temperatures that can reach 110+degrees F, a healthy population of rattlesnakes and bull snakes, periodic river flooding (the flood plain site flooded twice during construction), and limited access for construction equipment. In addition to these environmental conditions, the clients requested to be as close to the river as possible for its cooling effects, sounds, and visual pleasures. A strong energy conservation agenda was also an important requirement.Save this picture!Ground Floor Plan+ 30The building forms were derived from these circumstances.The main structure (living-guest quarters) is set on four 8-inch thick concrete piers. The central pier is doubled to make space for mechanical/electrical systems that connect lateral runs to the rooms. The finish floor elevation of the bridge structure (905 feet above sea level) was determined by a water shed hydrology analysis and is set above the 300-500 year flood event elevation. This ground separation also discourages snake infestations. A 15-foot deep steel Howe truss system spans 80 feet at the center span with 32/16 foot balancing cantilevers at each end. The longer cantilever extends out over the river while the other continues to a gangway that leads to the parking area. The location of the structure is intended to weave the bridge and ramp into an existing grove of cottonwood trees. The three main parts of the conditioned floor area, the owner wing, guest wing, and a shared wing with kitchen, dining, and lounge space, are essentially separate buildings that have their own heating/cooling systems. They are super insulated on all sides and independent of the steel bridge structure and are therefore referred to as “three refrigerators setting on a bridge”. Connecting these three parts is an unconditioned screened and glazed corridor and porch that can be opened up as needed for manual temperature and ventilation control.Save this picture!© Jim Van GundyThe steel bridge truss supports a wood lattice (128’x24’) that shades conditioned space below and reduces cooling loads by 20%. A secondary benefit is an accessible roof deck for easy roof maintenance and mischievous wine tasting, as it has no guardrails. Single lane road access into the site required sizing the prefabricated truss members to be transported on a short flatbed trailer and installed with a small boom crane.Save this picture!© Jim Van GundyThe second structure (event space) is roughly 1000 feet up river from the main structure. The small building is constructed with a steel exoskeleton to cantilever 40 feet over the river. This was required to meet the river setback requirements stating that foundation walls could not be within 100 feet of the center of the river. The cantilever also provided a platform for viewing a rare Steelhead spawning pool below. An existing road/trail that runs along the riverbank also needed to be accommodated so you can drive through the structure on your way up river.Save this picture!Fishing House Elevations 1+ 30All connections for both structures were bolted with no site welding to reduce fire danger. As a result the home can be disassembled and removed from the site with only the concrete piers remaining.Save this picture!© Jim Van GundyInteriors of the structures are tough and utilitarian, clear finished local pine, exposed framing lumber, with standard plywood sheathing. The event space uses sealed OSB flooring. Exterior finishes are galvalume metal siding, galvanized steel, and oiled garapa wood decking.Save this picture!© Jim Van GundyBecause both structures have essentially “scaffolding” as a part of their design, construction costs were kept to a minimum at $118 per square foot for the main structure and $147 per square foot for the event space.Save this picture!© Jim Van GundyProject gallerySee allShow lessHonoring Architecture’s Digital PioneersArticlesCoastal Marine Research Station / Martin Hurtado ArquitectosSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officePaul F.

Addie Waites Hunton: Pan-African leader

first_imgAddie Waites Hunton was a central figure in the development of the Pan-African movement. She was born in 1866 in Norfolk, Va., to Jesse Waites and Adeline Waites. Waites earned a high school diploma at the Boston Latin School, and in 1889 she became the first African-American woman to graduate from the Spencerian College of Commerce in Philadelphia.Waites married William Alpheus Hunton Sr. in 1893. He was a pioneer in Young Men’s Christian Association work among Africans in the U.S. The family moved to Atlanta, where she worked as a secretary at Clark College. After the 1906 racist terror leveled against the African-American community, the Huntons relocated to New York City.Between 1906 and 1910, Addie Hunton worked as a staff organizer for the National Association of Colored Women. She was an advocate for women’s suffrage in the campaign for the ratification of the 19th amendment, which granted voting rights to women. She urged leaders of the white suffrage movement to support access to voting for African people in the U.S.Toward the end of U.S. involvement in imperialist World War I, Hunton, along with Kathryn Johnson, served on behalf of the YMCA in Paris, assisting the hundreds of thousands of African-American troops deployed there. The women published a book in 1920 about their observations and experiences in France titled “Two Colored Women with the American Expeditionary Force.”This book provides first-hand accounts of the horrendous conditions that African-American troops were subjected to during their terms of service in France. The U.S. armed forces carried out widespread discrimination against Black soldiers who were routinely denied food, medical treatment and access to public accommodations.Hunton attended the Pan-African Congress organized by W.E.B. Du Bois in 1919 in Paris. The event has been labelled the Second Congress by historians. Du Bois requested the intervention of Blaise Diagne, a Senegalese representative in the French Assembly, to hold the gathering.According to Du Bois, “Diagne secured the consent of Clemenceau to our holding a Pan-African Congress, but we then encountered the opposition of most of the countries … to allowing delegates to attend. Few could come from Africa; passports were refused to American Negroes and English whites. The Congress therefore, which met in 1919, was confined to those representatives of African groups who happened to be stationed in Paris.” Of the 57 delegates from 15 countries, nine were from African countries with 12 delegates, 16 were from the U.S. and 21 from the West Indies. (Andrew G. Paschal, editor, “A W.E.B. Du Bois Reader,” Macmillan, 1971)Subsequently, Hunton remained active with the NACW and became an official of the NAACP. As a member of the executive board of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, she traveled with a women’s delegation to Haiti in 1926. Afterwards, she wrote a condemnation of U.S. occupation of the island and advocated for Haiti’s independence.Addie Waites Hunton died on June 22, 1943, after a life of activism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

And, it might be that we could create a poultry event as a part of our Farm-City activities.”Hale said he will suggest to the committee that strong efforts are made to bring back the farm petting zoo this year.“In the past, we would take farm animals to schools for the children to see and pet,” he said. “That was a big part of Farm-City Week, and I’d like to see us bring that back. Another program that I hope will be a part of the 2015 Farm-City Week is the Century Farm. We have a couple of families whose farms qualify, having been in the family for 100 years or more. These are farms of distinction and we need to recognize them with this award.”The Farm-City Committee conducts farm-related tours each year. Last year, the tours were city tours of Golden Boy Foods and KW Container.“The city tours were well attended, and we all learned a lot,” Hale said. “We might want to look at doing another city tour this year.”Hale said the committee will begin meeting in August. He is looking forward to ideas and suggestions from committee members about new programs and activities to enhance the good work of the Pike County Farm City Committee.
