Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address It may seem strange to write in praise of FTSE 100 dividend stocks at a time when the price of gold and Bitcoin are going through the roof. Yet that’s what I’m going to do. I still believe investing in the UK’s top blue-chips is a better way of building your wealth over the long-term, than chasing the gold and Bitcoin price higher.If you are sceptical, I understand. The gold price has just exploded past $2,000 an ounce for the first time in history. Crypto-currency Bitcoin is also flying, trading at $11,756 as I write this.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…Investors are racing into safe havens amid fears that a second wave of Covid-19 could trigger another stock market crash. So why am I bigging up FTSE 100 dividend stocks? I think gold and Bitcoin both look dangerously overpriced, and vulnerable to a fall.I’d consider buying these two shares todayNeither asset class pays any income either, whereas many FTSE 100 dividend stocks offer massive yields. For example, asset manager Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) yields an incredible 8.03%.While many top companies have suspended dividends during the pandemic, CEO Keith Skeoch has stood by his shareholders. On Friday, the group maintained its 7.3p interim payout, despite announcing a 30% drop in first-half profits to £195m, as customer outflows rose during the crisis.Skeoch praised the group’s “resilient performance” in exceptional circumstances, and said its strong balance sheet allows it to invest in the business and maintain its interim dividend. A word of warning: Skeoch is leaving shortly, and incoming CEO Stephen Bird could cut the dividend to strengthen the group’s balance sheet.No dividend is entirely safe. However, even if Bird slashed the Standard Life Aberdeen payout in half, it would still yield a generous 4%. That’s more than gold and Bitcoin ever will.Another FTSE 100 dividend stock to considerTelecoms giant Vodafone Group (LSE: VOD) halved its shareholder payout last year, a move I welcomed at the time because the yield was into double-digits. Today it yields a healthy 6.93%. Having got its dividend cut out of the way, management has stood firm this year. Anticipated free cash flow of at least €5bn in the current year should help make it sustainable.Vodafone’s revenues have fallen during the crisis as the travel lockdown hits income from roaming and visitors. Total Q1 revenue fell 1.4% to £10.5bn, which is modest compared to the damage most FTSE 100 dividend stocks have incurred.Vodafone’s debt pile is pretty hefty at €42bn in 2020, but the planned IPO of its mobile tower business Vantage Towers in 2021 could help shrink that. Dividend cover is just 0.8, but an anticipated 28% rise in earnings per share in the year to 31 March 2021, and 42% in 2022, should improve matters.With both these FTSE 100 dividend stocks, I would aim to buy and hold for the long term, to give them time to prove their mettle after the pandemic. I would buy either ahead of gold or Bitcoin. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Tell us about your rugby backgroundI started a bit later than most of the boys. I played football until I was 15 and then started rugby at Newbridge Comprehensive and joined Crumlin rugby club youth.How did you end up at the Dragons?I had a season at Crumlin, then went to Newport. I was asked to join the Dragons after a couple of games with Cross Keys College.Have you played different positions?In school I played a bit of centre and full-back but then I moved to the back row. I like openside best.Who had a big influence on you?Darren Bool, who was the teacher who got me started, then the Crumlin coaches and Paul Young at Cross Keys College, where I did an NVQ.What’s it like playing for the Dragons?It was nice to have a couple of games off the bench last season. It’s a great experience and builds your confidence. I try to pick up bits and pieces from players like Toby Faletau and Nic Cudd.

But I have got to bide my time, with Cudd and James Benjamin to compete with.

Cipolla House proposes the fusion of several architectural elements in a continuous organization, which is at the same time a spatial configuration, a system of circulations and a structure. Its materiality is defined with a single thickness that is consistent on walls, slabs, beams, ramps and stairs. Houses Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThe house follows the same philosophy as other projects of ours, which privilege inhabiting a structure rather than structuring a dwelling; the project is a system in equilibrium. The hierarchy of the house is conveyed in its materiality and thickness, which, in its path through the space and the structure, solves all the necessary elements with a single formal / structural operation.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThus, a basic domestic program composed of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, an integrated kitchen and dining area, plus a small outdoor cellar, is laid out along an exposed reinforced concrete slab 20 cms thick. The slab frames a series of architectural elements: the entrance and staircase towards the house, the bridge towards the roof, the beam that stiffens it and that functions simultaneously as the handrail, the roof which is also the eave of an intermediate space that precedes the entrance, the transverse structural walls that divide the interior spaces, the staircase that leads out to the sea and the beam that supports it; as if all of these elements were inseparable and integrated. Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Fernando AldaWe further integrate two structural adjustments: a small one square meter wall attached to the beam of the bridge towards the roof is detached on the outside, counteracting the torsion of the beam with its weight. This wall is also attached to the ground through a metal tensioner, fixed to a concrete cube underground. Likewise, the transverse wall that encloses the house in the main bedroom area extends towards the sea only to counteract the torsion that the entire structure exerts towards its opposite side.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessSOM: Art + Engineering + ArchitecturePanel DiscussionCarlo Ratti Associati’s Proposed Milan Science Campus Features Robotically-Assembled…Architecture News Share 2018 Architects: Felipe Assadi Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Chile Cipolla House / Felipe Assadi Arquitectos Projects Photographs Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/899780/cipolla-house-felipe-assadi-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/899780/cipolla-house-felipe-assadi-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeFelipe Assadi ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPichidanguiOn InstagramChilePublished on August 07, 2018Cite: “Cipolla House / Felipe Assadi Arquitectos” [Casa Cipolla / Felipe Assadi Arquitectos] 07 Aug 2018.

Follow the news on Iraq IraqMiddle East – North Africa News Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” September 15, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two more journalists killed in Baghdad region Reporters Without Borders voiced shock and sadness today at the news of the death of two more journalists in Iraq. Safaa Ismail Inad of the newspaper Al-Watan was shot in the head on the night of 12 September. His body was found near Sadr City, in east Baghdad. Hadi Anawi Al-Joubouri, the representative of Iraqi Union of Journalists in the Diyala region, was gunned down in an ambush on a road north of the capital the previous day.“We can no longer find the words to express our outrage at this unending dark tragedy for journalists in Iraq,” the press freedom organisation said. “These two men were murdered, and we again call on the Iraqi authorities to carry out investigations, so that those responsible for these murders are arrested and tried.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Journalists have been murdered, kidnapped and attacked with complete impunity since the start of the war in Iraq. They must be given physical protection as a matter of urgency.”At total of 106 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the start of the war in 2003.

Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WATER charges should be immediately suspended until there is a complete review of the workings of Irish Water and how it is to be funded, according to Fianna Fail TD, Niall Collins.The Limerick deputy said this Wednesday that Fianna Fáil will force a special debate on Irish Water during its private members business in the Dáil this week.The opposition party is calling on the Government to fully review the funding model at Irish Water and immediately cease the payment of bonuses at the company.“There must now be a full and frank debate on the future of Irish Water. Since its inception there have been a number of high profile controversies at the organisation, including highly damaging revelations about the bonus system being constructed within the company.“Any public trust with the operation of Irish Water has been broken. People I talk to in Limerick are enraged at the bonus culture in the company along with the utter confusion as to what families will actually have to pay when the first bills land in January. The series of damaging mishaps – from the outrageous set-up and consultancy costs that only emerged under media questioning to revelations about five figure bonuses for senior managers – have left people in Limerick frustrated and angry.“Disgracefully, when Fine Gael and the Labour Party forced through the legislation setting up this quango, they did not allow any debate in Dáil Éireann. Indeed, at that time Fianna Fáil led a walk-out from the Dáil in protest at the Government’s strategy.“It is clear that the time has now come for an honest and fundamental debate about the role of this quango and what part it is going to play in the country’s future. We are using our Private Members’ time to call for a full review of Irish Water, with a full suspension of charges while that review is ongoing.“Fine Gael and Labour rejected debate in the past and we can now see the full damaging impact of their decision to push ahead with flawed Irish Water plans. This week they have the chance to press the pause button on that process and facilitate a fundamental review of the organisation. I would urge FG and Labour backbenchers in Limerick who privately claim to despair at the damage Irish Water is causing to take a stand and support Fianna Fáil in our attempt to force honest debate.” Linkedin Facebook WhatsApp Email Twitter Print Advertisement NewsSuspend water charges and bonuses at Irish Water – CollinsBy Staff Reporter – October 22, 2014 717 Previous articleOvercrowding crisis at animal sanctuaryNext articleLimerick woman in LGBT top 100 business leaders Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie
Local NewsBusiness WhatsApp CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Paragonix Technologies, the leading hypothermic cardiothoracic organ preservation provider, announced today the first-in-man clinical use of the only FDA cleared cold storage device for donor lungs, its LUNGguard™ Donor Lung Preservation System, by Duke University Hospital. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210222005619/en/ Paragonix Announces First-in-Man use of LUNGguard™ Donor Lung Preservation System by Duke Hospital (Photo: Business Wire) “Donor lungs are sensitive to injury and the current ice storage of lungs risks cellular injury, especially with the increasing transport distances and times now experienced by lung transplant centers,” said John Haney, MD, MPH, Surgical Director, Duke Lung Transplant. Dr Haney was the implanting transplant surgeon on the first four cases using the LUNGguard system. “Duke Health is committed to pioneering new innovations that benefit transplant patients and changing the way donor lungs are transported has this potential.” The first-in-the-world use of the LUNGguard system preserved donor lungs for 7 hours on their journey to provide a patient suffering from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) with new lungs. Since the initial first-in-man, the Duke team has performed an additional four lung transplantations using the LUNGguard System. These early cases have demonstrated the versatility of the device in multiple applications including DCD and DBD donors, total ischemic times from 3 hours to 12 hours, and indications varying from emphysema to cystic fibrosis. The LUNGguard System represents a radical advance from ice and off-the-shelf coolers that has been the standard-of-care for over 50 years of organ transplantation. For the first time, transplant teams have access to an FDA cleared and CE marked hypothermic lung preservation device that can precisely maintain and monitor the environment necessary for donor lungs. “At Carolina Donor Services, our mission is to maximize the passing of the heroic gift of life from one person to another through organ donation. We are constantly embracing new technologies that will help safeguard organs and ensure better outcomes for those patients waiting for the gift of life,” said Danielle Niedfeldt, President and CEO of Carolina Donor Services, the organ donation organization that supported these cases. “I am honored that our team could be part of the first-in-man use of the LUNGguard system and we are excited by its positive impact in lung transplantation and saving more lives.” The development of this system has been supported by a collaboration between Paragonix and the Lung Transplant Foundation, a leading lung transplant patient advocacy group. “The LUNGguard device is a project that we have been working on with Paragonix for the past three years, because we saw the critical need for this technology in lung transplantation. To be able to help another IPF patient in the first-in-man case could not have been more significant to me personally,” said Jeffery Goldstein, President and Founder of the Lung Transplant Foundation and lung transplant recipient. The LUNGguard System is the latest addition to the Paragonix portfolio of organ preservation and transport systems. It is built on the same proven technology architecture as the Paragonix™ SherpaPak Cardiac Transport System, which has been widely adopted for heart transplantation over the past two years. Additionally, Paragonix has FDA cleared and CE marked systems for kidney, liver, and pancreas transplantation. “Our team at Paragonix strives to provide donor organs and transplant recipients every possible advantage for a second chance at life,” said Lisa Anderson, Ph.D., Founder, President, and COO of Paragonix Technologies. “We are honored to partner with the team at Duke and Carolina Donor Services to reach this incredible milestone and begin making an impact to as many lung transplant patients as possible.” About Paragonix Technologies Paragonix Technologies designs, produces, and markets organ preservation and transport devices that safeguard organs during the journey between donor and transplant recipient patients. Our award-winning devices mitigate risk in an otherwise high stakes environment by combining best-in class transplant products with a centralized communication and data transfer app to eable better coordination and efficiency during donor organ procurements. Paragonix SherpaPak™ CTS is the only commercially available FDA-cleared and CE-marked preservation and transport device for adult and pediatric donor hearts destined for transplantation. Paragonix is the sole sponsor of GUARDIAN, the largest international clinical data registry on heart preservation, capturing clinical outcome data on Paragonix SherpaPak™ CTS and all other heart preservation technologies. Paragonix’s LUNGguard™ is the only FDA-cleared and CE-marked cold storage preservation and transport device for donor lungs and was commercially launched in the US and in Europe in December 2020. Paragonix is also developing preservation devices for pancreas, kidney and liver — designed to improve donor organ quality and extend donor organ preservation time.
