Enter Your Email Address The Covid-19 pandemic brought a halt to moving house for a while, and it has hit companies like Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) pretty hard. The Taylor Wimpey share price is down nearly 40% so far in 2020. It will be hurting buy-to-let landlords too, as an increasing number of tenants are finding it hard to pay the rent. But there surely is great investing potential in the property market, isn’t there?As a less risky strategy than buying your own buy-to-let property, investors have generally seen shares in property companies as offering decent reward with less risk. I’ve thought that myself, as you’re spreading your cash across a whole portfolio of properties rather than buying your own individual buy-to-let property. You get exposure to business sites too, so that’s a bit more diversity. But that strategy has come crashing down in 2020, as the retail sector has been devastated. It led to Intu, once a big favourite among property investors, going into administration in June.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…Prices risingMeanwhile, house prices are rising. According to the latest Halifax House Price Index, the average UK house price reached £241,604 in August. That’s up 1.7% on June’s figure, and 3.8% ahead of July 2019. There’ll be a number of reasons for the short-term jump after the market started to open up again. But I bet buy-to-let landlords are wishing they were seeing a similar spike in demand.There’s pent-up demand from house buyers whose plans have been frustrated in recent months. Then there’ll surely be a boost from the temporary stamp duty holiday. We’ve learned in the past that when governments tweak the market using taxation, prices tend to change to balance it out.Buy-to-let?So how should we go about property investing? I’ve had a buy-to-let house for years, and it’s been mixed as an investment. I did well in the early days, but a series of voids, repair work, and struggling to actually get the rents, has made recent years quite painful. If I had the time again, I’d have put the money into housebuilder shares instead. My capital would have grown quite nicely. But, more importantly, I’d have had a steady stream of dividend income. My dividend yields would have been way better than my rental yields, and all with zero effort on my part.I really do see the Taylor Wimpey share price as a bargain now, and I wouldn’t touch buy-to-let today. The shares had started to pick up again after the initial pandemic crash. But that mini recovery has reversed now as people realise we could be in economic trouble for a lot longer than initially feared. But over the long term, the country’s severe housing shortage will continue. Taylor Wimpey looks priced to go bust right now, but I see no chance of that. It’s definitely a buying opportunity in my books. I’d forget buy-to-let while the Taylor Wimpey share price is so cheap Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

6 days to go! 3 FTSE 100 shares I’d buy before the ISA deadline “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares There’s a number of FTSE 100 shares I’m considering buying soon. But ISA investors like me don’t have long to make the most of this year’s tax allowance. We have less than a week to fully utilise our £20,000 quota for the 2020–21 tax year before it’s lost forever.I’ve just put some extra funds in my own Stocks and Shares ISA. And while I don’t have to buy UK shares straight away — just putting money in an ISA is enough to secure what you can of this year’s allowance — I don’t see the point in delaying. My stocks wish list is brimming with top stocks I think could make me terrific long-term returns.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…Here are three top-quality FTSE 100 shares I’m thinking of buying in the coming days.A top stock for tense timesThe economic outlook remains packed with peril as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. This means that UK share investors like me need to remain extra cautious before investing. But one FTSE 100 stock I’d happily buy without any concerns is BAE Systems. As I’ve discussed before, the tense geopolitical background means that major Western nations will have to keep spending heavily on defence. News of fresh missile testing in North Korea in recent days has destabilised the landscape a little bit further too. Be warned, though, that government spending on defence might suffer depending on later changes to foreign policy.Another FTSE 100 fireworkI also believe Unilever is a low-risk pick for these uncertain times. This FTSE 100 company sells a variety of essential personal care and household products which create terrific earnings stability even in tough economic periods. In fact, the unrivalled brand power of products like Dove and Magnum allows the company to effectively lift prices even when broader consumer spending is down, thus allowing profits to keep marching higher. I already own this UK share in my Stocks and Shares ISA. But Unilever’s share price slump since the autumn is tempting me to buy some more. That’s even though signs are emerging that the brand power of firms like this is being chipped away by smaller, local manufacturers.An excellent UK retail shareJD Sports Fashion is a bit riskier than Unilever and BAE Systems in my book. Its ‘athleisure’ ranges might be highly fashionable at the moment. But the third wave of Covid-19 infections spreading across Europe threatens to derail consumer spending power again in its marketplaces. This could take a swipe out of the company’s profits in the short-to-medium term. That said, I’d still buy this FTSE 100 share for my ISA as demand indicators for the sports fashion market remain extremely encouraging through the middle of the decade at least. On top of this, I like JD Sports’s ambitious approach to foreign expansion. It’s a programme I think could deliver brilliant profits growth and consequently huge shareholder returns. 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.

Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Tampa, FL Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Diocesano de la Iglesia Anglicana de Chile] Durante estos días, el Gobierno de Chile ha encabezado un proceso de consulta ciudadana para la elaboración de una nueva Constitución. Dada la relevancia de este hecho para el país, el Obispo Diocesano de la Iglesia Anglicana de Chile (IACH) y Primado de la Provincia de América del Sur, Héctor Zavala, realizó un llamado a los miembros de la Iglesia a participar e involucrarse activamente en este periodo de discusión y socialización.A través de una carta pública y un video publicado, el Rvdo Zavala, animó tanto a laicos como a clérigos de la IACH, a sumarse a este proceso constituyente, ya sea generando información y espacios de discusión dentro de sus iglesias o involucrándose en algunas de las instancias de consulta promovidas por el Gobierno.“Como cristianos y como ciudadanos, estamos llamados a formar parte de los procesos de cambios sociales y culturales de nuestra Nación, y al mismo tiempo, a ser agentes de luz e influencia en todos los ámbitos de nuestra sociedad. Por lo mismo, nuestro rol es importante dentro de esta instancia participativa”, precisó el Primado.En este sentido, el Obispo recalcó que si bien dentro de la Iglesia no todos comparten una misma postura respecto a los mecanismos de consulta y que la participación e involucramiento se puede llevar a cabo desde diferentes posiciones, a toda la Iglesia la une el mismo deseo, que es que esta nueva Carta Magna, refleje el patrimonio cristiano que se ha mantenido desde la fundación de Chile como República.“Como Iglesia queremos que la norma jurídica más importante de nuestra sociedad, preserve nuestros valores y principios republicanos según una cosmovisión bíblica, y esto solamente se logra a través de un accionar desde la fe y por medio del amor”, precisó en su carta el Obispo Zavala.El derecho a la vida y dignidad desde la concepción, la libertad de enseñanza, y religiosa, la justicia e igualdad de todo ciudadano ante la ley, entre otros valores, enfatizó el Obispo, son importantes de preservar y queden reflejados en la nueva Carta Magna.En virtud de la iniciativa de redacción de la nueva Constitución, el Gobierno de Chile dio plazo hasta el día 28 de Junio para recoger los planteamientos de la ciudadanía, ya sea a través de consulta individual en el sitio www.tuconstitucion.cl, o por encuentros auto convocados.En respuesta al llamamiento del Obispo, hasta la fecha hermanos de la IACH han encabezados diferentes encuentros de discusión, que han permitido plantear los principios como cristianos quieren que se reflejen en la nueva Constitución.Ver el mensaje de Obispo Diocesano, Héctor Zavala aquí.

OCEANA is a mixed-use condo hotel, focused on commercial, touristic and multi-family activity, which is located at the corner of 28th Street and Cozumel Street, a few meters from one of the most popular beaches of the Mayan Riviera known as “Playa Mamitas”. The main design intent is to generate a social environment in a green and pleasant place, at one of the most vibrant zones in Playa del Carmen. The market at which this compound is aimed to are tourist and visitors, where they can rent a beach apartment close to the shore and enjoy the comfort from a hotel but with the freedom to benefit from the proximity to 5th Avenue. The project is inspired by the craftsmanship and traditional Mexican construction techniques, referencing endemic textures, which were translated in a fresh and contemporary way highlighting a careful selection and use of materials, specifically the use of exposed board-formed white concrete and wood. This project’s architectural design reflects a contemporary trend and pursues to become an urban point of reference for residents and visitors to the complex. The building optimizes its current views due to its large terraces, generating a unique experience in relation to the natural environment around it. The main access to the housing complex is located on 28th Street, either one can walk into the courtyard or drive into the parking garage. Moreover, the lobby welcome visitors and residents directly and is located at the end of the access stairs and ramp as a focal point. The main design concept is focused on opening the building envelope towards the street and the urban space, where the connection with the pedestrian street and nearby beach is enhanced, defining a living experience as the midpoint between having a solid communication to the outside and enjoying a private and secluded environment, finding the best of both situations. OCEANA is organized through a central courtyard, set half level above the main street, that generates a unique experience in relation with its natural and urban context, where the residents or visitors gradually get in touch with the amenities, corridors and apartments. Additionally, the gym, services and some amenities are located right next to the lobby.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaThe central courtyard is undoubtedly the heart of the project, a large open space that integrates the amenities of the complex and promotes social interaction and gatherings. This patio exhibits extensive garden areas with native tree and plant species, along with some plants rescued from the original land. Similarly, in this area there is a pool, bar and lobby, which have a privileged location to the outside and at the same time the privacy of the residents is preserved, and noise is prevented from reaching directly during a social event. Exterior lighting design is shown indirectly, comfortably and elegantly, providing the necessary visibility for pedestrian traffic. Likewise, decorative lighting was placed on the garden and as a detail on the building facades and apartment terraces. The complex is divided into three main five-level blocks plus solariums. The building has a dynamic design on the facade, encouraging each apartment to look outward and have natural ventilation. The vertical circulation cores are located at both ends of the layout, connecting them through exterior corridors. Also. emergency exits, accesses and evacuation routes facilitate evacuation of the building and the entry of emergency staff. In the same way, the emergency stairs connect each floor and are naturally ventilated. Consistently, 34 apartments types were designed, ranging from 75 to 120 m2, according to the idea of having greater flexibility and adaptability according to the real estate market in Playa del Carmen. In total, 74 dwelling units were designed on 5 levels.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaSave this picture!IsoSave this picture!© Jorge TaboadaThe PH are located on the 5th level, which have direct access to solariums through a private interior staircase. Solariums are private areas well equipped with grills, plunge pool, outdoor lounge and terrace, an ideal space for every occasion. All apartments have lighting in all its interior and exterior spaces. It also has telecommunications outlets located according to the needs and apartment type. The materiality is based on the use of exposed board-formed white concrete as the main element for walls, which becomes one detail that defines the architectural image and personality of the building. Similarly, this scheme of materials is also integrated with wood planks for the decks, white pebble and marble flooring with different finishes. In the housing interiors, on walls there was used a base of putty with white paint, while using wooden panels in bedrooms and social areas. Also, for the interior floor, a polished clear travertine Silk Georgette tech stone marble was selected in a 120 x 60 cm format, while for corridors and terraces the same material was specified, but with a brushed finish.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaEl patio central es sin duda el corazón del proyecto, un gran espacio descubierto que integra las amenidades del conjunto y promueve la convivencia.

Angela Davis (left) at Justice for Alan Blueford rally.Photo: Daniel ArauzAlan Blueford would have turned 19 on Dec. 20, but instead he was killed by Oakland, Calif., police last May 6. To commemorate his birthday and to say no to all acts of police violence and murder of Black and Brown young men, more than 450 people from the Bay Area packed the Laney College auditorium in downtown Oakland on Dec. 18.The evening, an outpouring of support and love for the Blueford family, also became a loud, angry cry of protest against all forms of police torture and murder.Speaking at the beginning of the program, Jeralyn Blueford said, “What they did to my baby was wrong, and we’re here to do something to stop it. We have to organize. We have to march. We have to stop the murder.”Joining the Bluefords on the stage throughout the night were family members of other young Black and Brown men who have been shot and killed by police, from Oakland to New York City. Slides and videos were shown throughout the evening to commemorate the deaths of many youth of color.Despite the sadness and mourning that rippled throughout the evening, the intense, fiery messages of warriors, old and new, in the struggle against racism and oppression were heard loud and clear.Clarence Thomas, a longtime activist from International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 and a leader of the Million Worker March Movement, set the tone early in the evening, saying, “The nation mourns and expresses outrage over the murder of 20 children and six adults in Connecticut at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, and that outrage is legitimate. But where is the outrage to the mass escalating murder and brutality against our youth? Where is the outrage to the racist police shootings of our young people, Alan Blueford, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin and many others?”Thomas added, “Labor has a responsibility because labor is the most organized sector of the working class.” The union leader recounted the long history of the ILWU, from a 1934 four-day port shutdown to protest the police murder of two San Francisco dockworkers to the 2010 shutdown of the West Coast ports in solidarity with Justice for Oscar Grant. Grant was a young Black man who was shot and killed by Bay Area Rapid Transit cop Johannes Mehserle on Jan. 1, 2009, while handcuffed and restrained by other police.Spearheading national campaignBlueford’s killing has propelled his family into spearheading a national campaign against similar police shootings and murders. The Justice for Alan Blueford Coalition has actively sought out families around the country who have been targeted by the police.The Blueford anti-police brutality campaign has been joined by family members, supporters and friends of Oscar Grant. One such member, Tim Killings, president of the Laney College Black Student Union, delivered a moving solidarity statement in which he explained: “We are more than just a student organization. We are deeply concerned members of the Oakland community where Black, Latino and poor youth are under attack. We advocate doing whatever is necessary to get justice for Alan Blueford.”Other speakers at the rally included Angela Davis, a former political prisoner and longtime activist against racism and mass incarceration, who is now a professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Davis, who also identified herself as a longtime resident of Oakland, said, “When I think about Alan Blueford, I think about Li’l Bobby Hutton, who was killed by the Oakland police a few days before he would have celebrated his 18th birthday. The eyes of the world are on Oakland.”A panel of social justice organizers and family members of young people killed by the police was featured in the second part of the program. the Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon, who traveled from Baltimore, summed up the feeling of the group when he said, “There is nowhere else I would rather be than with the Bluefords fighting for justice.”Witherspoon, head of the Baltimore Southern Christian Leadership Conference and a leader of the People’s Power Assembly, gave testimony about 15 racist killings by the Baltimore police of Black youth since the beginning of the year. Witherspoon said that only after the community launched their own investigation did the truth come out about Anthony Anderson Sr., who was tackled by police and killed in front of his two-year-old granddaughter. The SCLC leader stated, “Not only is this brutality, it is terrorism.”Constance Malcolm and Franclot Graham, the parents of Ramarley Graham, an 18-year-old Black man, described how their son was shot to death in his Bronx home on Feb. 2 by New York Police Officer Richard Haste. The two travelled across the country to express their solidarity with the Blueford family and other victims of police terror and challenged the crowd to: “Stand up with all of the families and fight.”Also speaking was Fred Hampton Jr., the son of the Chicago Black Panther Party leader who was murdered in his bed by Chicago police in 1969.This event was much more than a commemoration. It was a call to organize communities around the country against police violence and brutality. As Wanda Johnson, the mother of Oscar Grant, stated, “We have to come together to fight for justice. We will not take what they are doing to our Black and Brown children anymore.”For more information, contact the Justice for Alan Blueford Coalition,justice4alanblueford.org. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Diha also accused the police who were at the scene of making no attempt to intervene and stop the attack.Eskin had an arm broken and his skull was fractured in several places. He is currently being tested for brain injuries in Taskim Hospital in Beyoglu. Kaplan also received emergency treatment in the same hospital.

Following a meeting held on May 15 to drum up ideas on combating a serious increase in burglaries and assaults in the Pallasgreen, Doon and Cappamore areas, a further shocking crime took place in which three elderly siblings were tied up, assaulted and robbed. “These are some kind of sadistic criminals who are not afraid of the consequences of their actions,” said, David Thompson who is heading up a community movement against crime.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking to the Limerick Post he said:“The victims will never get a good night’s sleep again; There is no compensation for that”.Mr Thompson believes that the law is too lenient on those carrying out such aggressive crimes.“These are professional criminals at work and all they are getting is a month’s probation, which is suspended because they have spent that time in custody, despite having had, maybe hundreds, of previous convictions.“People in East Limerick, covering areas from Oola, Murroe, Dromkeen and Kilteely, are living in fear which has grown to an extent that they are no longer asking ‘what is next’ but ‘who is next?’”Mr. Thompson, along with a large group of locals, has been working with the gardaí to come up with a system to tackle relentless crime in the area.“We have been working on a system to help the gardaí that is second to none involving a series of text alerts.“I’m meeting with the superintendent next week and the Garda Commission is looking into it, so we are appealing to them to come to a conclusion on the matter to allow us proceed full speed ahead to get it in action”.Doon Garda Station closed earlier this year and there is one garda in place in Oola.“It was suggested to me that mobile phones could be taken from rural guards, which is mad because modern technology is the one way of contacting them and of course they should all have phones,” said Mr Thompson who believes that someone needs to take a stand.“But we need the help of the government and the guards if we are to be successful. We have to come up with punishments for these criminals that fit the crime because at present they are not afraid of the consequences”.A further community meeting is to be organised to inform locals of plans as soon as any advances are made.Meantime, a 27-year-old man has been charged at Limerick District Court in connection with two aggravated burglaries in the county. William Gammell of An Cuirt, Monard, Co Tipperary was remanded in custody with the possibility of further charges being brought. He is also charged with impeding the arrest of a person.
