Enter Your Email Address Many investors may view today’s cheap dividend stocks solely from a passive income perspective. In other words, their high yields provide a generous income return and little else.However, undervalued income stocks could deliver impressive capital returns alongside a passive income. Their low prices may equate to capital growth potential. Especially as low income returns available on other mainstream assets push investors towards dividend shares.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…Capital growth opportunities from cheap dividend stocksDespite the 2020 stock market rally, there are plenty of cheap dividend stocks available to purchase today. In many cases, they face challenging operating conditions in the short run that have caused investors to demand a wide margin of safety. This may limit their scope to deliver capital growth in the short term. But over the long run, they could benefit from improving operating conditions as part of a global economic recovery.Therefore, buying them now while they trade at a discount to their intrinsic values could be a shrewd move. It may enable a long-term investor to lock-in low valuations across the stock market for high-quality businesses. Especially the ones that have the financial capacity to survive further operating challenges. Over time, today’s cheap stocks could experience stronger financial performances and improving investor sentiment that leads to high capital returns for investors.A lack of passive income appeal elsewhereCheap dividend stocks offer a significantly more attractive passive income opportunity than other mainstream assets at the present time. For example, obtaining an income return that’s positive on an after-inflation basis has become more difficult over the past year for bondholders and savers. They may even experience a loss of spending power should interest rates remain low and inflation rise in the coming years.Meanwhile, property investment may produce disappointing income returns over the next few years. High house prices and a struggling economy may produce low yields that fail to improve significantly.This may increase the appeal of cheap dividend stocks, thereby raising demand for income shares. The end result could be rising share prices – especially if interest rates remain at low levels. Since policymakers seem to be more concerned about the economy’s outlook rather than maintaining modest levels of inflation, it would be unsurprising for a loose monetary policy to remain in place over the coming years.Reducing risk from undervalued dividend sharesOf course, cheap dividend stocks may experience further difficulties in the short run. Their operating conditions could deteriorate further in the coming months. As such, it’s important to buy those companies with solid financial positions and affordable dividends. Doing so may reduce risk and lead to a higher passive income, as well as a larger capital return in a likely stock market rally over the long term. See all posts by Peter Stephenslast_img read more

For their own house, partners Vivian Lee and Robert Edmonds had the peculiar luxury of extraordinary insight into San Francisco’s permitting process, 24/7 access to each other for discussions of ideal rebar and the best window frames, and the particular freedom that comes from being experienced architects finally doing their own— dream—house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Edmonds + Lee ArchitectsSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!Courtesy of Edmonds + Lee ArchitectsPractically, the pair, who have two children, needed (at least) three bedrooms and enough living space for their family to feel perfectly situated: close enough that their now-youngish children didn’t have to be sidelined into a basement or attic, but ultimately spacious enough that as they do grow up, they can become independent – from each other, and from their parents. Edmonds + Lee also decided to divide their building into two units, making use of Lee’s development expertise combined with Edmonds’ architectural focus. The lower floor can be—and currently is used as—an income-producing rental, but the house is designed flexibly enough that the owners can turn the structure back into a single-family home. Working as not only their own clients but also their own developers, they were able to avoid the typical market-driven pressure of maximizing square feet and instead focus on qualitative issues. As a result, they were able to work creatively—by flipping the plan to place the living room on the top floor and bedrooms on the lower level— to bring to life the feeling of loft-style living that they wanted, without giving up the intimate neighborhood feel of their immediate surroundings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Edmonds + Lee ArchitectsBecause much of Edmonds + Lee’s practice is centered around multifamily buildings, the architects celebrated the urban density this project brings to the street. While it can feel compelling for those who have the resources to do so to try and insulate themselves from San Francisco, to use zoning and architecture to protect themselves and their families from the possible encroachment of an ever-densifying city, Edmonds and Lee wanted to celebrate the density, while still creating an interior space that feels light, airy, spacious, and open to the sky.Save this picture!Courtesy of Edmonds + Lee ArchitectsTheir familiarity with common architectural constraints led to an ease of priority: the guardrails are simple drywall, the stair is painted steel, and much of the house’s detailing made creative use of everyday materials. The facade is built from a rhythmic display of pre-manufactured trim boards; the sinks are molded Corian; and and the architects undertook the ultimate Ikea Hack: measuring the standard size of the big-box retailer’s shelving, and building closet spaces to fit to the centimeter, creating a custom millwork-level aesthetic for a fraction of the price. And that’s central to the magic of the house; it was built by people who really do live within a budget, who had a vested interested in building within that budget, who experience financial as well as design constraints, but who embraced and celebrated these limitations and used them to give rise to incredibly creative and aesthetically compelling solutions. Working on Switchback reminded Edmonds and Lee of their time at Columbia as it became almost like a school project, part unshakable rules, and equal part unshakable excitement for pushing the envelope wherever it can be furthered.Save this picture!Courtesy of Edmonds + Lee ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessRACE / Ministry of DesignSelected ProjectsNew Orleans Tour: A Unique Architectural and Cultural Journey to the Crescent CityEvent Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEdmonds + Lee ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan FranciscoUnited StatesPublished on June 20, 2017Cite: “Switchback House / Edmonds + Lee Architects” 20 Jun 2017.

first_img Reporters Without Borders is deeply shocked to learn that the Surinamese parliament yesterday approved an amnesty law for crimes against humanity under the past military dictatorship. SurinameAmericas SurinameAmericas August 12, 2010 Find out more RSF_en to go further October 3, 2013 Find out more Organisation Former minister seeks €230,000 in damages from magazine News Receive email alerts Newscenter_img Proposed by six members of the ruling coalition and passed by 28 votes to 12, the law amends a 1989 amnesty law – which applied only to the civil war period from 1987 to 1992 – and grants immunity from prosecution for all such crimes from the time of Col. Desi Bouterse’s military coup on 25 February 1980. The murders of five journalists in the Fort Zeelandia military barracks on 8 December 1982 would probably remain unpunished for ever.“This bill is an insult to the memory of the victims who paid with their lives for their commitment to human rights and freedom of information in the face of a regime of terror,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Daring to use ‘reconciliation’ and national ‘stability’ as arguments for imposing impunity is the height of cynicism.“The amnesty comes at a time when the Fort Zeelandia murder trial that began in 2007 is drawing to a close and evidence is accumulating against the main suspect, Desi Bouterse, who returned to power through the polls in July 2010 and continues to be president. Bouterse must be held accountable before the courts, even if this must wait until the end of his current presidential term.”Suspected of “conspiracy,” 15 opponents of Bouterse’s military regime were arrested, tortured and executed in the Fort Zeelandia barracks on the night of 8 December 1982. They included five journalists: Andre Kamperveen, the owner and manager of Radio ABC, Frank Wijngaarde, a Radio ABC reporter, and three print media journalists, Leslie Rahman, Bram Behr and Jozef Slagveer. After the massacre, soldiers torched the premises of Radio ABC, Radio Radika and the daily newspaper De Vrije Stem. No media was allowed to operate during this period aside from the state radio SRS and the daily De Ware Tijd.Bouterse has recognised his “political responsibility” for the massacre but insists he was not present when it took place. This defence has been challenged in the course of the trial that began before a military court in 2007. An army officer who participated in the coup, Ruben Rozendaal, has testified against President Bouterse, prompting Bouterse to call him “Judas.” The prosecutor is due to present his final arguments on 13 April and a verdict is expected in May.“The traumas of the past are perpetuated by impunity, which by definition runs counter to the rule of law and the expression of fundamental human rights,” Reporters Without Borders added. “In this respect, the courage shown by civil society, judges and journalists in other South American countries – especial former Operation Condor countries – has set an invaluable example.”On the picture, from left to right, middle rank : Leslie Rahman, Frank Wijngaarde, Bram Behr, Jozef Slagveer and Andre Kamperveen.

Reporters Without Borders said it was unacceptable that French actor Gerard Depardieu head-butted a photographer who tried to take photos of him while he was shopping in San Lorenzo market in Florence.“Depardieu could have used methods other than violence to stop the photographer”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said, while nevertheless condemning certain methods used by the popular press.Depardieu head-butted freelance photographer Dario Orlandi in the face after he snatched pictures of the actor on 3 October 2005. “I had started to take photos of Gérard Depardieu who was shopping in the market in the company of a young woman. The actor told me to stop or he would break my camera,” said Orlandi, who is not a member of the paparazzi, and works for several publications including Il Manifesto, La Reppublica, L’Espresso and L’Unita. “I walked out of the market but then I followed the actor at about 15 metres distance and I took about 15 or so shots with a long lens. Gérard Depardieu spotted me as he was about to take a taxi. He started running towards me. I was scared and I also began to run. As I was running faster, he signalled to me that he wanted to talk to me. I let him approach me and without any warning he head-butted me in the face,” Orlandi told Reporters Without Borders.The photographer was taken to Santa Mario Nuova Hospital in Florence, suffering from an œdema and doctors said he needed four days to recuperate before returning to work.“It upsets me that a professional who is only doing his job should be attacked by an actor, who despite his fame, does not have the right to behave like this,” Mario Renzi, president for Florence Province.“The photo of Gérard Depardieu running after me is splashed all over most Italian dailies today,” said Orlandi.
