Retirement savings: I’d invest £1k in these 2 FTSE 100 shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA

Building a retirement savings portfolio can be challenging. However, with the FTSE 100 appearing to offer a number of companies which could deliver impressive returns in the coming years, buying large-cap shares today could make that task much easier.Furthermore, purchasing them through a Stocks and Shares ISA may improve your overall returns due to the tax efficiency offered by the account.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that could be worth buying today with £1k, or any other amount. They may improve your prospects of building a retirement nest egg to draw a passive income in older age.HSBCGlobal bank HSBC (LSE: HSBA) delivered a mixed performance in its most recent quarter. Despite reporting financial strength in its operations in Asia, the performances of its European operations and US business were somewhat disappointing.As a result, the bank’s reported earnings increased by just 4%, while it now doesn’t expect to reach its return on tangible equity target of 11% for the full year.Looking ahead, the 2020 financial year is expected to be disappointing for HSBC. Its bottom line is forecast to fall by 1% versus the previous year. Alongside risks to the global economy, such as from the spread of coronavirus, this could cause investor sentiment towards the stock to come under pressure in the near term.However, with HSBC forecast to post a rise in earnings of 6% next year, and it currently trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 11, it could offer long-term investment potential. Furthermore, the stock’s dividend yield of 6.7% suggests its total returns could be highly attractive, which may help to boost your portfolio returns in the coming years.CompassThe recent trading update from support services company Compass (LSE: CPG) was relatively encouraging. Although it experienced a difficult operating environment in Europe, this was offset by a strong performance in the US. As such, it is on track to meet its guidance for the full year.Since Compass has been able to report positive net profit growth in each of the past five years, it appears to offer a resilient financial outlook. This could become increasingly popular among investors at a time when risks, such as US political uncertainty and the impact of coronavirus, could have a negative impact on the global economy.As a result of its consistent past performance, as well as its forecast growth in net profit of 6% next year, Compass trades on a premium valuation. For example, it has a P/E ratio of 22, which is higher than many FTSE 100 companies which offer similar forecast growth rates.However, the consistency of Compass and its diverse range of operations could mean its shares continue to rise over the coming years. As such, now could be the right time to buy it.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Washington, DC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Bishops and clergy gathered in Salinas, Kansas, on Dec. 1 for the consecration of Western Kansas Bishop Mark Cowell, center. Photo: Diocese of Western Kansas[Diocese of Western Kansas] Episcopalians and invited guests from across Kansas and the United States gathered Dec. 1 at Christ Cathedral in Salina to welcome and celebrate the ordination and consecration of the Diocese of Western Kansas’ sixth bishop. The Rt. Rev. Mark A. Cowell succeeds the Rt. Rev. Michael Milliken, who served the diocese for nearly seven years.Elected on May 5, Bishop Cowell will lead Episcopalians in a largely rural diocese covering the western counties of Kansas. Like many clergy within the diocese as well as his predecessor, Cowell will be a bi-vocational bishop. A lawyer who once prosecuted gang members in Dodge City, the new bishop will continue to serve as vicar of Sts. Mary and Martha of Bethany in Larned and of Holy Nativity in Kinsley. He also works part-time as Dodge City’s municipal prosecutor and is currently in his second term as Hodgeman County attorney.The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, led the ceremony as chief consecrator.Assisting the presiding bishop as co-consecrators were Milliken, fifth bishop of Western Kansas; the Rt. Rev. James Adams, fourth bishop of Western Kansas, and the Rt. Rev. Martin Fields, bishop of Western Missouri. The Very Rev. David Hodges, dean of Christ Cathedral, served as master of ceremonies.A reception to meet and greet Cowell and  Curry was held at the Salina Country Club following the ceremony.Cowell was raised in the Episcopal Church and fell in love with Anglican liturgy while living in England as a child. After returning to the United States, he served as an acolyte at St. Peter’s Church in Essex Fells, New Jersey, until he left home for college.He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from Drew University in 1990, and his Juris Doctorate from Washburn University Law School in 1994. Shortly after admission to the Kansas Bar in 1994, he felt the call to ministry. Trained locally, he was ordained a transitional deacon in October 2003 and a priest in June 2004.Cowell, his wife, Julie, and their three children, Gabriel, Cathleen and Gryffin, live in Larned.

Madison Park Tree House / First Lamp

The Madison Park house is the latest custom-spec house to be designed and built by First Lamp. Situated on an existing steep slope lot in the Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle the house grows out of the hillside and allows the main living space to float out amongst the trees. This 3,200 sf, 5 Bedroom house will be an energy star certified residence and is targeted to be 4-star built green. Daunting and stubborn while also inspiring, the site was our true client . A handful of landslides had occurred here in past years, so this tucked-away location had been ignored or avoided until recently. After a series of site visits with our “ground team” (engineers, excavator, and foundation subcontractors), we came to understand two things: 1) That development here would actually increase the stability of the site and 2) It would therefore be an asset to the surrounding landscape and community During the design process we often used a tree as a metaphor for our design goals:Save this picture!© Tim Bies PhotographySensitively Integrate Structure with Landscape and topography Stabilize the hillside with a deep root system Reduce storm water impact to the site and its surroundings.Save this picture!SectionIn many ways, the design response to these goals is very literal. 54 Pin piles, 5 helical anchors, and 110 yards of concrete support the structure and retain the hillside. These are consolidated to the smallest feasible footprint, allowing the topography to surround and envelop the trunk of the house. The main living space is cantilevered from this base much the same way the branches of a tree reach for the sun. The siding is almost 100% cedar, charred to more closely reflect the deep ambient color under a grove of mature trees. The house is topped with almost 2000 square feet of living roof which acts as a filter, a sponge, and an aesthetic amenity for the residents.Save this picture!© Tim Bies PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Architecture Rifa G’07 / Villalba, Rudolph, Vila, López, Canén, Apolant, MartinezSelected ProjectsEFFEKT Wins Contest to Redevelop Abandoned Train Shed in Esbjerg with StreetmekkaUnbuilt Project Share “COPY” Area:  3200 ft² Area:  3200 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/571865/madison-park-tree-house-first-lamp Clipboard Save this picture!© Tim Bies Photography+ 21 Share Houses United States 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/571865/madison-park-tree-house-first-lamp Clipboard ArchDaily CopyHouses•Seattle, United States Year:  Madison Park Tree House / First Lamp Architects: First Lamp Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Photographs Madison Park Tree House / First LampSave this projectSaveMadison Park Tree House / First Lamp “COPY” CopyAbout this officeFirst LampOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeattleHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 02, 2014Cite: “Madison Park Tree House / First Lamp” 02 Dec 2014.

Villa Holtet / Atelier Oslo

first_imgSave this picture!© Gunnar Sørås+ 11 Share Villa Holtet / Atelier Oslo 2015 Manufacturers: Brunner, PT vinduer., Timber AS.Save this picture!© Lars Petter PettersenText description provided by the architects. The starting point for this task was a typical challenge in Oslo: densification in an area of existing single family houses. The plot was a lovely old garden, but a flat terrain and a relatively tight situation gave a limited view. It was important for us to preserve much of the garden for outdoor use, but also as a natural quality to the enjoyment of residents, both outside and inside. Therefore, the ground floor has a relatively limited footprint, while the larger upper floor cantilevers out creating covered outdoor areas.Save this picture!Site PlanThe house is broken up into smaller volumes to adapt to the relatively tight situation and the scale of the surrounding buildings. Save this picture!© Gunnar SøråsAs an addition to the garden, and as compensation for the reduced view, the project creates an inner landscape, a sequence of rooms with varying scale and use, different degrees of transparency and privacy, changing views and light conditions. The central double height living room is the heart of the house and connects all the rooms and areas. The room is surrounded in first floor by lobby, kitchen and dining room, and the garden with its various outdoor areas.Save this picture!© Lars Petter PettersenA staircase leads up to a gallery with access to the private rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. The gallery is a casual place, and acts as an extension of the rooms. A large skylight provides varied light and shadow effects through the day.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!PlanThe house structure is prefabricated wooden columns and beams. All structure parts are exposed in the interior of the project. The cantilevered rooms on the 2nd floor hanging from high beams under the roof. The beams have different dimensions, depending on the cantilever length. The columns have unique dimensions, adapted to their individual loads. It has not been the goal to standardize or clean up the construction, but rather let it be an organic result of the housing geometry.Save this picture!© Lars Petter PettersenA system that cannot immediately be read as a clear structure, but rather gives the qualities of a forest, where you can let your eyes wander along continuing branches.

Limerick artists angered over makeup of new cultural committee

first_imgBelltable:Connect bursary to help artists explore a new idea in May NewsLimerick artists angered over makeup of new cultural committeeBy Bernie English – August 16, 2017 1523 Print Advertisement Limerick Artist Receives Arts Council Next Generation Award worth €20,000 WhatsApp Email Facebook TAGSartistsartsCian Prendivillekeith bogueLaceLimerick City and County CouncilPLAN PLAN Chairman Keith Bogue.Limerick artists angered over makeup of new cultural committee. PLAN Chairman Keith Bogue.JUST weeks after Limerick City and County councillors voted to establish the country’s first council committee entirely dedicated to culture, local artists are claiming that the local authority has failed to ensure that people working in the cultural community are represented on the new group.The Professional Limerick Artists Network (PLAN) and Limerick Arts and Cultural Exchange (LACE) are angered by what they see as a row-back on plans to give them a voice on the new culture Strategic Policy Committee (SPC).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The groups claim they were given to believe there would be two seats each on the committee for PLAN and LACE, as the organised representatives of people involved in arts and culture in the city and county.But the local authority denies ever promising the four seats and says that the two organisations will have to go through the Public Private Network system to gain representation.“Two representatives each was the deal and now they have gone back on that. There seems to be a strong reluctance on the council executive to have anything directly to do with the arts committees,” said Keith Bogue, chairperson of PLAN.Mr Bogue fears that the representation for arts and culture groups, which they believe was agreed, is now far from secure.“Anyone from haberdashers to dentists can apply through the PPN system. We were the people doing the work all along. We were the people giving our time and expertise for free to try to advise the council when they were paying enormous amounts of money to outside consultant for advice.Now they’re changing the goalposts and we’re being pushed aside. A deal is a deal and they’ve gone back on it,” he declared.Sectoral interests on the council’s existing SPCs are chosen from membership of the PPN and the council says this is the appropriate way for PLAN and LACE to get a voice on the new committee.A statement on behalf of the council said: “It is incorrect and misleading to say that the two groups are being sidelined.  “The SPC system is intended to give councillors and relevant sectoral interests an opportunity for full involvement in the policy making process from the early stages.“The setting up of a Culture SPC is being done in accordance with the regulations and guidelines set down by the government. One of the guidelines indicates that sectoral interests are nominated through the Public Participation Network (PPN).“This process was indicated to the PLAN and LACE groups via email in which they were encouraged to register with the PPN. At a previous working group meeting, the issue of membership of the SPC was raised.  Both PLAN and LACE were told that the issue would be looked in to”.However, Solidarity Party councillor Cian Prendiville believes there is another way.“I understand that the argument is being made that the SPC guidelines do not allow this, however no section of the guidelines was quoted to back up this assertion. Having read through the guidelines, I believe that it is possible,” he said. Visit the Limerick Post Arts section to read more stories involving Limerick artists.center_img Calling Limerick’s Creative Kids!

This will be the President’s second State of the Union address which will outline the administration’s performance over the last year and his agenda for the third year in office. According to the White House release, before his address last year, President Trump had delivered comprehensive tax cuts and reform to the American people, providing taxpayers and businesses with tax relief. Across the country, companies are using tax cuts to invest in American workers with bonuses, higher wages, and better benefits, the statement reads. In January 2018, Trump and his Republican colleagues in Congress insisted that the $1.5 trillion tax cut will put more money in people’s pockets and encourage U.S. corporations to expand and create more jobs.In his first address, President Trump also pointed out that the economy was booming, however, affordability and rising home prices continue to plague the housing market. He had also outlined the record-setting accomplishments of his first year, and cast an inspiring vision for building a safe, strong, and proud America.As reported in DS News, after making housing finance reforms a key focus area for the Senate Banking Committee, its Chairman Sen. Mike Crapo introduced an outline for housing finance reform legislation, as part of the initiative to create a more sustainable housing finance system.  With news on housing finance reforms, homelessness crisis and a cooling housing market dominating the headlines, it remains to be seen what housing related issues will be addressed by the President this time on Tuesday, February 5 at 9 p.m. EST.
