Maybe you clicked on this article because you received some money for Christmas. Or maybe you’ve worked and saved hard to accumulate the sum.Either way, the fact that you’re asking how to invest it is a good sign. The process of investing is a way to multiply money, so you’ve already realised that you need to make your money work hard for you – you really are off to a good start!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…Buffett lights the wayAnd you’ve come to the right place here at the Motley Fool. Investing is what we’re all about. We all do it and we’re passionate about it, so do stick around.One of my investing heroes is Warren Buffett, the US-based investor who’s worth billions. He invested his way to become one of the richest people in the world. But he made his first investment on the stock market when he was 11, with exactly $114.75, which he had been saving up since the age of six. To be precise, he bought three shares in a company called Cities Service.It was the start of a long and fruitful journey for him and maybe you are at the start of a similar one. However, today with £500 to invest, I wouldn’t aim to buy the shares of any individual company because it’s not quite enough money for that, in my view. One problem is that the transaction costs will likely eat up too much of your money and put you behind before you even start.I’m talking about things such as the broker’s fee when you buy the shares, the spread between the buying and selling prices quoted (the bid-ask spread) and Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (SDRT) at 0.5%. But on top of that, you’ll end up with all your eggs in one basket. Investing in just one company brings with it single-company risk. If something goes wrong with the business underlying your shares, your entire investment is at risk.Instant diversificationMost investors get around that problem by diversifying into the shares of several companies at the same time, although with £500 you haven’t got enough fire-power to do that. But there’s an elegant solution – funds.Share funds hold many investments, and when you put money in the fund, your risk is spread over all those underlying businesses, so you achieve automatic diversification. And there are two ways to go with share funds. You can either choose one that’s managed by a professional fund manager, or a team of fund managers, who buy, sell and monitor the investments, or you can go for a passive, low-cost tracker fund.Tracker funds are good because the ongoing fees are so low. They are run on a mechanical basis and simply aim to replicate the performance of an index or a sub-set of shares, such as the S&P 500 index, the FTSE 250 index, or perhaps the FTSE 100 index. You can also side-step the risk of picking an expensive-but-badly-managed fund if you go for a tracker. So that’s where I’d put £500 today.

Talking points: Domestic finals promise drama, elation and despair in equal measure

Expect a high-scoring affair, 29-25 to the Chiefs LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By tomorrow evening, just a shade after 8pm, the 2016-17 domestic season will be a footnote, and we’ll know which clubs have been engraved into the history books. At Twickenham, 80,000 will pack out England’s home of rugby to see whether the Exeter Chiefs can lift their first Premiership trophy, after growing increasingly influential since their promotion in 2010, or whether Dai Young’s thrill-seekers, Wasps, can dance and dart their way to a first Premiership trophy in nearly a decade.Over the Irish Sea, Munster, fuelled by an emotional tidal wave since the passing of Anthony Foley, will look to deprive the dangerous Scarlets backs of possession and lift the Pro12 at the Aviva Stadium as a fitting tribute. Anthony Pivac’s men may have other ideas, and the in-form West Walians feel a first title since the 2003-04 season is within their grasp.Premiership final Referee: JP DoyleKick-off: Twickenham, 2.30pmWasps scrum needs to hold firm to let backs flyThe Wasps set-piece has been on the wobbly side in recent weeks; the scrum struggled against Leicester and if Tommy Taylor’s darts waiver, it could be a long afternoon in the sun for Wasps. Their defence has also been on the porous side in recent months, conceding 30-plus points to Worcester Warriors, Harlequins and Northampton Saints, and despite an electric backline, they’ll know you cannot always be relied to outscore the opposition.The loss of the electrifying Kurtley Beale is a damaging one for Wasps but to be able to call on a full-back of Willie Le Roux’s class is no hardship. If Joe Lauchbury‘s workrate can continue to make a mockery of his Lions omission and Thomas Young can find space in the wide channels to release Elliot Daly and Christian Daly on the vast Twickenham pitch, Dai Young’s men could yet lift their first Premiership final for nine years.Strike runner: Elliot Daly has pace to burn in his preferred No 13 shirtChiefs momentum cannot be overstated…The Chiefs broke a Premiership record at the end of the regular season, plundering eight consecutive try bonus points. Their thrilling last-minute win over Saracens meant it was 15 games without loss and it gave Sarries’ six starting Lions their first taste of defeat. The fact that Henry Slade, who executed one of the finest pressure touchfinders seen in recent years, cannot demand a starting spot gives you some indication of their strength-in-depth.The Exeter pack gave Sarries a proper examination last weekend and if Geoff Parling can rule the skies and Don Armand and Thomas Waldrom, the collisions in the tight, it will give the platform for outstanding strike runners, Jack Nowell and Phil Dollman, the chance to prosper in broken-field play. The final will give Rob Baxter, and the watching public, the chance to see how much they’ve learnt  from their first-half jitters against Saracens 12 months ago at Twickenham.Off the top: Geoff Parling is still a lineout operator of the highest order FOR THE LATEST RUGBY WORLD SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREPro12 FinalReferee: Nigel OwensKick-off 6.15pm, Aviva StadiumMunster need to play spoilsportsMunster are renowned for their dogged, attritional style of rugby and they may have to play a pragmatic, set-piece orientated game to nullify the multiple attacking threats of the West Walians. Munster were outmuscled by Saracens in the Champions Cup semi-finals, and seemed to lack a Plan B, but the Scarlets can’t boast the grunt of Mark McCall’s men, so Rassie Erasmus would be sensible to use leaders Donnacha Ryan – playing his last game for Munster – Peter O’Mahony and CJ Stander to grind the Scarlets pack down with tenacity, raw power and hard-earned nous.They showed against the Ospreys in the semi-finals that they could score aesthetically pleasing tries with a Simon Zebo special, but that should be the exception rather than the rule. If the pack can gain control, and start rumbling, Conor Murray will be able to start turning the screw and the Scarlets could wilt.X-Factor: Simon Zebo can stretch defences in the wide channelsScarlets need to play without fearDespite being lauded at the start of the season, it took the much vaunted Scarlets backline a while to hit their straps but Wayne Pivac’s men, like Exeter, are on a roll, winning 17 out of their last 19 games, and in the last month, the gifted backs have clicked under the watchful eye of former Wales fly-half, Stephen Jones. Jonathan Davies and Scott Williams have started to punch their reputations in midfield, with Davies in particular showing his class with an outstanding display against Leinster in the semi-finals.The Scarlets back three are playing with smiles on their faces, and in Steff Evans, they have a player who is popping up all over the park, hitting gaps and looking to offload. The guy on the other flank is British & Irish Lion, Liam Williams and as well as his natural attacking gifts, he showed his prowess with the boot last weekend. Up front, if Rob Evans, the bustling Ryan Elias and Tadgh Beirne can give them parity up front and James Davies can get to work on the deck, the boys from West Wales could well be singing Sospan Fach with their delirious fans on Saturday evening.Thrill seeker: Steff Evans is this season’s top scorer in the Pro12Pro12 verdict: Munster are clear favourites to lift the trophy but the in-form Scarlets could make it an Irish double, as their creative backs puncture the Munster defence. 24-22 to the ScarletsMunster: Simon Zebo; Andrew Conway, Francis Saili, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Tyler Bleyendaal, Conor Murray; CJ Stander, Tommy O’Donnell, Peter O’Mahony (captain), Billy Holland, Donnacha Ryan, John Ryan, Niall Scannell, Dave KilcoyneReplacements: Rhys Marshall, Brian Scott, Stephen Archer, Jean Deysel, Jack O’Donoghue, Duncan Williams, Ian Keatley, Jaco TauteScarlets: Johnny McNicholl; Liam Williams, Jonathan Davies, Scott Williams, Steffan Evans; Rhys Patchell, Gareth Davies; John Barclay (captain), James Davies, Aaron Shingler, Tadhg Beirne, Lewis Rawlins, Samson Lee, Ryan Elias, Rob EvansReplacements: Emyr Phillips, Wyn Jones, Werner Kruger, David Bulbring, Will Boyde, Jonathan Evans, Hadleigh Parkes, DTH Van der Merwe Go West: Jack Nowell will be looking to inspire Exeter to a first Premiership trophy The domestic season comes to a close tomorrow with more than 130,000 fans expected to pack out Twickenham and the Aviva Stadiumlast_img read more

This is a private residence project for a family in District 10, Ho Chi Minh City. Our client is a gentleman who lives abroad and had requested to build a house for his mother, Mrs. Nga, and her family currently living in Vietnam. The area has a particularly high building density in the city, with several 1 to 3-story buildings constructed in close proximity to each other.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!Courtesy of SANUKI DAISUKE architectsAccording to Mrs. Nga, who has been living in the area for over 40 years, the land used to be forested. Currently, her residence is a small house which lies among a tangled web of narrow alleys of only 1-2 meters in width. If a typical house were to be built on this site, it might face the challenge of not getting in enough light as the neighbor constructions will cast shadows over it, resulting in a dark and damp space.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiHence, the aim of this project is to create an open living space in the middle of such a high-density residential area. At the start, we set out an open area which is surrounded by closely compacted premises. We ensured maximize the construction volume, and at the same time arranging space for a back garden.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAfterward, we observed the movement of the Sun and made a diagonal cut in the building accordingly, making an open floor space to avoid direct sunlight from entering the rooms and overheating them.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe reflected natural light on the floor from the outdoors would brighten the indoor space. The five requested bedrooms are three-dimensionally stacked into a block — and the remaining area becomes a continuous open space. The common area, the entrance, the kitchen, and dining area are on the first floor; the living room on the second, and the worship room on the third.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe open space connects these floors, running continuously from the entrance door to the rooftop. We envision this construction as a ‘three-dimensional garden’ — where the wind and sunlight travel constantly from the outdoors through every open entrance in the building.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiWaterproof cement is applied to both the outer and inner walls, making a seamless transition from the outdoor space to the inside of the house. When approaching the house from the 1-meter wide alley, we’d see a large open space gradually appears amongst a crowded urban area.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe residents can enjoy the change in the living atmosphere throughout different times and weather in the day. Despite the challenge that the premise is built amidst a densely populated area, still, we have managed to achieve this open living space so that the family can appreciate the natural light and fresh air from the outdoors.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessPunchbowl Mosque / Candalepas AssociatesSelected ProjectsJetavana Buddhist Temple / Studio GAONSelected Projects Share 2018center_img Projects “COPY” Photographs Area:  122 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Sanuki Daisuke architects Area Area of this architecture project Houses NGA House / Sanuki Daisuke architects NGA House / Sanuki Daisuke architectsSave this projectSaveNGA House / Sanuki Daisuke architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

UK scientists urge PM to prevent “catastrophic” fall in charity research funding

first_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via UK scientists urge PM to prevent “catastrophic” fall in charity research funding  801 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Melanie May | 8 July 2020 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 More than 60 of the UK’s top cardiovascular disease and cancer research scientists have signed an open letter to the Prime Minister asking for urgent financial support for UK medical research charities.Amidst concerns that recent funding announcements from Government for universities and charities will not address the shortfall in medical research charity investment in the UK science base, the letter urges it to “take swift action to invest in a Life Sciences-Charity Partnership Fund to protect the vital and unique contribution charity-funded biomedical research makes to the UK’s R&D ecosystem and the wider economy.”Last year medical research charities invested £1.9 billion into UK research, with Cancer Research UK and the BHF funding more than half of all non-commercial UK research into cancer and heart and circulatory diseases.However, Cancer Research UK says it may have to cut an annual £150 million from its research funding due to the pandemic’s impact, while the BHF anticipates cutting its research spend by half this year, from £100 million to around £50 million. This impact is not expected to be restricted to the short-term, with some level of reduction in funding tentatively forecast for at least the next three to five years.The scientists say such a sharp fall could have a catastrophic impact on the UK’s research and R&D base, the research careers of thousands of young scientists, and advances in diagnostics, treatments and cures for people with the UK’s deadliest diseases.Professor Sir Nilesh Samani, Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation said:“Without immediate action, the UK’s research base faces a devastating fall in funding that will delay progress in discovering new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases including heart attack, stroke and vascular dementia. We also risk losing a generation of promising young researchers and diminishing the UK’s standing as a world leader in science. We cannot afford to let this happen during a pandemic which has underlined the critical role science and research play in the UK’s healthcare and economy.”“The call for a Life Sciences – Charity Partnership Fund is about far more than supporting charities. It would represent a Government investment in UK research, returned many times over in terms of the world leading scientific discoveries it enables, the fuel it provides to the UK economy, and the lives that will be saved through the treatments and cures that will follow.”The proposal is supported by the Association of Medical Research Charities and 151 of its charity members, and centres around a co-investment scheme that provides a level of match funding for future charity research over the next three to five years. The AMRC estimates a reduction in UK medical research investment of £310 million this financial year, and that it could take several years for funding to return to current levels.Michelle Mitchell, Cancer Research UK Chief Executive, said: Advertisement “If the Government believes in improving cancer survival, ensuring the UK retains its position as a global scientific power, and protecting our talented scientists, it must support the UK’s research charities in their time of need. We know that with support we can help get research back on track, along with the many benefits this brings to the economy.“Ultimately it will be patients who will miss out on life-saving discoveries if the Charity Partnership Fund isn’t backed by Government, which is heartbreaking and preventable.”The BHF currently supports a portfolio of £446 million of research at 47 institutions across the UK. This includes funding the posts of more than 1700 researchers.Cancer Research UK spent £442 million on research into all types of cancer in 2018/2019, investing in state-of-the-art facilities that helped create a network of research at 90 institutions in more than 40 UK towns and cities. It funds around 4,000 researchers in labs and hospitals across the UK, including over 500 PhD students.
