Is the Royal Dutch Shell share price a risk worth taking for its near-7% dividend yield? Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Shares in oil giant Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) – the largest listed company on the London Stock Exchange – lost almost 4% of their value in early trading today as the company reported on a fairly uninspiring fourth-quarter performance.With the stock down roughly 25% in value since last summer, should Foolish investors run for the exits? I’m not so sure.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…Before explaining why, let’s take a closer look at today’s announcement.Tough timesDue partly to lower oil and gas prices, “net income attributable to shareholders on a current cost of supplies (CCS) basis” – the company’s jargon-tastic preferred measure of profit – fell 48% to $2.9bn compared to Q4 in 2018. For the full-year, the same measure fell 23% to $16.5bn. This was below what analysts were expecting, which goes some way to explaining today’s share price capitulation.CEO Ben van Beurden tried his best to put a positive spin on things, stating that the company had delivered a “competitive cash flow performance in 2019 despite challenging macroeconomic conditions”.He went on to say that the business was committed to completing its $25bn share buyback programme (roughly $15bn of shares have been purchased so far) but that the pace of this depends on how the global economy behaves and “further debt reduction”. Personally, I like it when management are prudent. It’s when they promise the world I start to worry. Stick or twist?Shell’s share price is now down to levels not seen since 2017. That implies there’s value to be had. But let’s not kid ourselves – no one buys Shell’s stock with the expectation of making a huge capital gain. The firm’s chief attraction has always been its ability to shower investors with dividends ($3.7bn was returned over the last quarter). Assuming the situation does not change dramatically, Shell is currently forecast to pay a total of around 187 cents (144p) per share in 2020. Taking today’s share price wobble into account, that gives a stonking great yield of almost 7% – far higher than the vast majority of those companies that make up the market’s premier league.Clearly, no company can offer absolute certainty when it comes to their payouts and Shell is no exception. Risks include global growth slowing by more than expected and/or trade tensions between the US and China resuming. Although too early to say, the coronavirus outbreak in China could also put further pressure on the oil price. Another hurdle Shell faces is the need to adapt its business to reflect the growing demand for renewable energy, requiring increased investment (with implications for dividend growth). Despite all this, the fact that the company has famously not cut its cash returns since the end of the Second World War should not be underestimated. I doubt anyone would want such an action on their CV, even during times of strife. As such, you can bet that the management will pull out all the stops to stay in investors’ good books. The fact that this year’s payout is likely to be covered 1.4 times by profits also provides some reassurance.All told, I suspect Shell is worth sticking with for the income it offers but only as part of a diversified portfolio. And if tracking the fortunes of 20 or so shares sounds like hard work, there are far easier ways for investors to generate a second income stream.

The FTSE 100 ended the week at less than 6,600. As I wrote this article, approaching mid-day, it was only a little over 6,500, and had briefly dipped below that. So there was no big Friday afternoon recovery.Are investors carefully rejecting the stocks they think could be most damaged by a coronavirus pandemic, or are the selling everything in blind panic? It looks a lot like the latter to me.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…WealthI wonder if the historical insurance connection is behind the Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) share price fall? It shouldn’t be, since Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management merged to form a new wealth management giant.The shares have since been a bit volatile, as it looks like it’s taking a couple of years for the merger to smooth itself out. Results for 2019 are due on 10 March, and analysts are expecting a flat year for earnings. But there are EPS rises on the cards for 2020 and beyond, and I think we could be entering a profitable decade.Dividend yield forecasts had been put at around 6.7%, but that was before this week’s stock market carnage. Standard Life Aberdeen shares have fallen 16% over the past week, and that’s boosted those dividends to a whopping 7.9%.Some investors might wait and see how last year’s results turn out. But however the year went, I see the shares as a great income buy today.PressureHousebuilder shares are reeling under combined blows from the coronavirus panic and fears hanging over property markets. That’s helped push Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV) shares down 15% over the past week.Is there going to be a house price slump? I don’t think so, not when estimates put the UK’s housing shortage at somewhere between a million and 1.2 million homes. And even if property prices should fall, land prices should follow (though I expect there’d be a lag), housebuilders should be able to maintain decent profit margins.As for Barratt Developments specifically, the share price crunch has resulted in a forward P/E of only 9.8. Forecast dividend yields have been pushed up too, to 6.4% this year and to 6.8% on 2021 forecasts.I was already bullish on housebuilders, and now I reckon I’m seeing even better buys.TrustInvestment trusts have been taking a battering this week too, and I’ve got my eye on Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT).Despite its name, it doesn’t really invest in Scotland or in mortgages. But as my Fool colleague Tom Rodgers pointed out a couple of days ago, it does include some of the world’s top tech companies, with Amazon and Tesla among its holdings. Tom rates it a buy, especially as the value of its investments has now grown to £9bn.Since then, the shares have fallen further, taking them down 14% on the week. With a net asset value of 613p, that’s widened the discount to 11%.Scottish Mortgage invests for growth, and I reckon if you combine it with one of the week’s depressed dividend-paying investment trusts, you could have a very nice pairing to add to your ISA.

Amidst a bustling locality in New Delhi, on the corner of a residential street a landmark constituting of tangled electrical cables, pole and a ficus tree is unconsciously replaced by an architectural reflection of a family. This reflection is the B123 residence that efficiently cuts out the prevailing chaos and weaves a complex family arrangement together through its spatial fluidity.Save this picture!© Dev SinghImage of a House.It is a rarity in metropolitan cities to find in a family where 3 generations stay together. With the given familial arrangement where the owner being the first generation, his two sons with their respective spouses being the second and their kids being the third generation; it was important to provide each mindset a sense of private domain yet connect it in space and time to encourage mutual interactions so that the ever increasing families, even though divided by floors in plan the entire house gets connected through multiple cut-outs within the vertical sections throughout.Save this picture!Diagram PerspectiveThe difficulties of the design aligned with architect’s concept in formulating an image of the house – an almost solid exterior with a very fluid interior construed the common manifestation of the client and the architect. Here, each floor looks onto the other creating a series of double and triple heights that bridges the divide between individual families encouraging interactions. A continuous connection unites the three floors whilst creating a dramatic play of light in the open courtyard.Save this picture!© Dev SinghThe Eyes of the Open Courtyard.The house settles in the confine of a rectangular site abutting an existing house from the north-eastern side. This edge becomes a base for an anchor wall in coherence with remaining three perforated facades. Each of these facades have multiple yet optimised openings for natural light which is a key architectural element in this project.Save this picture!© Dev SinghTreading the traditional route, the entire house is conceived around a single courtyard that forms a glass plunge pool on the ground floor. The pool behaves as a screen of light as it receives natural light from the same sized skylight above, on the terrace but also, gives abundant reflected and refracted light to the basement; turning it into a private gallery for social gathering. The light is further enhanced within the basement by creating a sunken court towards the street. On the ground floor level the entrance is translated by an access bridge over the moat below.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section 2A sculpturesque yellow staircase connects the basement level to the floor above that function as a private parking facility and a hub for electromechanical services. Steps leading upwards, to the raised ground floor which accommodates the main dining area and kitchen along with the master bedroom along with the glass pooled courtyard that boasts a colourful art piece on one wall that runs till the skylight on top and branches out at every floor into two bedrooms and seating areas. Similarly, the upper floors transmute into bedrooms and private lounge spaces along with connecting bridges. These bridges have unique steel cut-out railing which adds art with every movement along these pathways.Save this picture!© Dev SinghAdding a lyrical connotation within the stated precincts of the naturally lit courtyard, a glass lounge is suspended between the second and third floor. It is skewed from the grid plan and serves as a leisure space for reading and other rejuvenation activities. Complementing this structural element, hanging above the floating lounge is an exemplary innovation – an exposed air conditioning duct with multiple shafts carrying cool air stemming out of it; these also work as light fixtures and make it look like a piece of art. Save this picture!© Dev SinghLike a unique metaphor binding all the levels, on every floor the bedrooms with sliding glass doors overlook the courtyard and its steel cut-outs; this is an age old concept of traditional Indian Havelis that has been explored here in its modern interpretation.Save this picture!© Dev SinghVisual connect to History.In a fast-paced city, it is easy for history to be displaced but if these trophies of the past are well-preserved or are celebrated in the present times then one who belongs to the present can form associations with a past one has not been a witness to. Like an analogy to the city’s history, the house B123, a family unit for three generation meditates on the terrace where the serene garden opens to magnify an enviable view of the Qutub Minar on one side and the Bahai temple on other side.Save this picture!© Dev SinghThese two pivotal monuments form a visual connect from one work of architecture to another. A disconnect from the immediate surrounding yet connecting to the dots in the past making it relevantly contextual to a larger context than what is easily perceivable to the eye.Save this picture!Cross Section 1Material and Designing.Since it is an inward looking house, the balance between the spatial narratives from the exterior into the interior is also explored in terms of inventive material palettes. The entire house has been designed as a flat slab construction with exposed concrete soffits and structural elements. The exterior cladding comprises of custom designed and in situ manufactured precast concrete panels and reclaimed wood planks. The external door windows are in aluminium manufactured by Schüco, with double low E-glass to cut out glare and the traffic sounds from the main street.Save this picture!© Dev SinghAll external walls are designed as cavity walls with the cavity filled with polyurethane foam to control the inside vs. outside temperatures. This effect is enhanced on the terrace using a sandwich slab which is further covered with a thick insulation of natural earth and grass reducing the solar gains through the roof almost negligible. The glass and wood combination employed within the staircase and passages adds a distinct personality to the spaces. Lyrically playing through every space are the hanging lights that add warmth and bind the areas into a cohesive unit.Save this picture!© Dev SinghThe contemporary steel cut-out design used in the pathways also finds its space within the walls as art pieces, enhanced with back-lighting and further matched with long hanging lights in different metals.Save this picture!© Dev SinghProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Fukaya / Nobuo ArakiSelected ProjectsRetrospect Vineyards House / Swatt | Miers ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year: Save this picture!© Dev Singh+ 53 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeM:OFA StudiosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew DelhiIndiaPublished on August 19, 2015Cite: “House B123 / M:OFA Studios” 19 Aug 2015.

Howard Lake | 18 August 2010 | News The Institute of Fundraising and Fundraising Standards Board are encouraging landowners to report any charities which contravene best practice ./guidance when co-ordinating Three Peaks charity challenge events. The two organisations want to ensure that the long-term sustainability of charity challenge events is preserved given that they raise substantial funds for UK charities.Complaints about charity challenge events in the Three Peaks should be referred to the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) who can then help forward them to the relevant charity, assist in resolution and education about specific park requirements and concerns from local communities.The Outdoor UK Challenge Events Code provides best practice ./guidance for charity fundraisers, including a specific section on the Three Peaks Challenge. The Code emphasises the importance of preserving the natural environment in areas such as National Parks, whose beauty needs to be preserved. With these areas under increasing visitor pressure, land managers and local people are increasingly concerned about the impact of large scale charity challenge events in and around Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.Louise Richards, Director of Policy and Campaigns at the Institute of Fundraising, comments: “In revising our ./guidance on outdoor fundraising, the Institute wants to actively encourage best practice in this area. That is why, in addition to providing a revised Code to the sector and other stakeholders, we are asking landowners to refer any examples of bad practice to the Fundraising Standards Board. We feel this will help raise standards in outdoor fundraising, which remains a popular form of raising money for charity.”Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board added: “Fundraisers and volunteers come together to make these events an immensely successful and fun way of raising money for good causes up and down the country. But it is essential that participants follow the Institute’s ./guidance if charities are to continue to be welcomed by landowners and local residents.”Complaints can be made to the Fundraising Standards Board at:www.givewithconfidence.org.ukPhoto: burge5000 on flickr.com About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

So this year we’re stepping up activity and plan to double the number of organisations we rate from 25 to 50.“Although we’re mainly interested in think tanks, we are seeing an increasing number of ‘hybrid’ organisations that have elements of both campaign groups and think tanks. We already cover some of these but expect to include more in the future. It’s more about what they do than how they label themselves.

Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom June 2, 2021 Find out more Released on bail the same day, the 71-year-old Lai was arrested for participating in a banned march on 31 August 2019 in protest against Hong Kong’s proposed extradition law, under which Hong Kong citizens and visitors, including journalists and their sources, could have been extradited to China.The proposed law, which triggered an unprecedented wave of protests in Hong Kong, was subsequently abandoned.The founder and chairman of the Next Digital media group, which publishes the widely-circulated Apple Daily newspaper, Lai is due to appear in court on 5 May along with two pro-democracy activists who were also arrested on 28 February.Lai is also charged with the “criminal intimidation” of a reporter with the pro-Beijing Oriental Daily media group, with whom he had a verbal exchange in June 2017.“There is no justification for the charges against Jimmy Lai and his arrest at home like a criminal, which seem to be intended to humiliate him,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau. “His arrest is designed to smear him and his media group, which provided extensive coverage of last year’s pro-democracy protests.”Formerly called Next Media, Next Digital is one of the few remaining Hong Kong media groups that dare to openly criticize China’s Communist Party regime and its Hong Kong allies. For this, it is often harassed and attacked. It was subjected to a major cyber-attack in June 2014 and was the target of two arson attacks in January 2015, one of them on Lai’s home.The Hong Kong special administrative region is ranked 73rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, after falling from 18th position in 2002. China is currently ranked 177th.
