How I’d start earning passive income from UK shares in 2021 with £250 a month

first_img 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. See all posts by Peter Stephens Image source: Getty Images. How I’d start earning passive income from UK shares in 2021 with £250 a month “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” UK shares offer a significantly higher passive income than other asset classes at the present time. However, the 2020 stock market crash showed they also carry greater risks.As such, building a diverse portfolio of high-quality companies could be a sound move. Buying those shares that have dividend growth potential may further enhance an investor’s income return in 2021 and in the coming years.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…Opening a Stocks and Shares ISA to make a passive income from UK sharesBefore buying any UK shares to make a passive income in 2021, opening a Stocks and Shares ISA is a logical first step. It offers a low-cost means of efficiently investing money without paying capital gains or dividend taxes. Moreover, it’s simple to open an ISA, and withdrawals can be made at any time without penalty.FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares offer greater income returns at the present time than assets such as bonds and cash due to low interest rates. Meanwhile, high house prices make buy-to-let unaffordable.  And with lower yields, that could also make it less attractive to income investors. However, as mentioned, shares are risky assets. Therefore, it’s imperative to build a diverse Stocks and Shares ISA that contains UK shares with resilient financial situations. Those that are able to deliver a robust passive income over the long run.FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 dividend investing opportunitiesDespite a recent stock market rally, many UK shares offer an attractive passive income at the present time. For example, SSE and GSK currently have 5%+ dividend yields. Meanwhile, utility stocks such as National Grid, Severn Trent and United Utilities offer 4%+ dividend yields that may prove to be relatively resilient in case of further economic challenges ahead.In terms of dividend growth opportunities, stocks such as AstraZeneca, Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser could deliver attractive earnings growth in the coming years. This may filter down into a rising dividend for their investors. Meanwhile, stocks such as Imperial Brands and British American Tobacco could become more popular as they adapt to changing consumer tastes in the cigarette/e-cigarette categories. They’re also seeking to improve their balance sheets, which could strengthen their financial prospects in the years ahead.Investing £250 per month in 2021Clearly, investing £250 per month in UK shares is unlikely to produce a large passive income straightaway. However, over time, it can build to a surprisingly large portfolio size that goes on to offer a generous income return in the long run.Many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares are currently offering high yields compared to their historic averages after the 2020 stock market crash. So now could be the right time to start investing in a diverse range of dividend shares. They may offer high income returns in 2021, as well as dividend growth over the long run.

Photo courtesy of International Christian Concern and Stand With Iraqi Christians[Episcopal News Service] At a cost of $5 each, chicks are helping Iraq’s Christian chicken farmers rebuild their livelihoods in the Nineveh Plains, a region historically home to Jesus’ followers dating back to his time on Earth.With the cooperation of the farmers, Stand With Iraqi Christians and the nonpartisan, ecumenical International Christian Concern, the first of two chicken farms are up and running as part of an economic revitalization program aimed at reestablishing farmers in this area of Iraq known as “Chicken City” prior to its occupation and destruction by ISIS, or the Islamic State.“The SWIC initiative in chicken farming speaks to the need for sustainable economic development in a region devastated by violent conflict. The local commercial infrastructure, being destroyed during the fight to reclaim territory from ISIS, needs to be restored to its former levels for job creation and food production,” said the Rev. Robert D. Edmunds, The Episcopal Church’s Middle East partnership officer, in a press release. “This is a far-reaching effort to start to reclaim hope for a prosperous future for the people of the Nineveh Plain.” For more information on Stand With Iraqi Christians or to donate, click here.A U.S.-led coalition invaded Iraq in 2003 overthrowing Saddam Hussein’s government and initiating an eight-year war. A dictator, Hussein ruled the country for a quarter century and was convicted of crimes against humanity and hanged in 2006.Throughout the Iraq War, insurgents targeted and terrorized Iraqi Christians, whose numbers fell from 1.4 million at the start of the war to less than 250,000 today. When the United States completed its troop withdrawal in 2011, the then-fledgling Islamic State, began to take hold.Still, some Christians have chosen to remain, including chicken farmers in the Nineveh Plains.“In Iraq, 80 percent of Christians from some of the oldest Christian communities on earth were driven from their ancient communities by ISIS. Yet, those who remain are extraordinarily courageous, resilient, faithful, and are desperately in need our friendship and help,” said the Rev. Christopher Bishop, founder and president of Stand With Iraqi Christians and rector of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Radnor, Pennsylvania, a Philadelphia suburb.“The Western Church and societies must understand that without our assistance, the impending loss of these communities would constitute a humanitarian, political, cultural and economic catastrophic for Iraq, and an irreparable wound to the world-wide body of Christ,” Bishop said in an email to Episcopal News Service.A chicken coop on the Nineveh Plains destroyed by ISIS. Photo courtesy of Vincent DixonBefore ISIS’s invasion, the northern Iraq city of Qaraqosh, located about 20 miles southeast of Mosul, was home to Iraq’s largest Christian community and had some 100 poultry farms. ISIS killed or displaced the city’s residents and destroyed their farms.Today, however, as conditions improve, chicken farmers are returning to the area. Stand With Iraqi Christians and International Christian Concern plan to help farmers establish two more farms in July and another four by October. Each farm creates or supports 134 jobs, including farm laborers, chicken sellers, hatchery workers, butchers, grocers, feed sellers, veterinarians and truck drivers, and generates $48,000 in income during each growing period, according to Stand With Iraqi Christians.Bassam (right) in his newly rebuilt chicken coop. Photo courtesy of International Christian Concern and Stand With Iraqi Christians“They’re chicken farmers, they know what they are doing; they’ve been raising chickens for a long time, and what they want is to reestablish their chicken businesses. What they lack is the startup capital to reestablish the infrastructure,” said Buck Blanchard, a Stand With Iraqi Christians board member and the missioner for outreach and mission for the Episcopal Church in Colorado, in a telephone interview with ENS.“Once they get their chicken farms back up and running, they’re capable of running a successful business and supporting their families,” he said.Blanchard visited Iraq with Bishop in October 2018. Bishop launched Stand With Iraqi Christians in 2015 as a grassroots mission to address Iraqi Christians’ struggles; through friendship and material aid, it supports the right of Christians and their communities in Iraq to survive and thrive.A former filmmaker, Bishop documented his first trip to Iraq in a 36-minute video, “Where is Our Place?”The Anglican Church in Iraq is one of 14 Christian communities under the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf. Regarding Stand With Iraqi Christians’ economic revitalization efforts in the region, the Rt. Rev. Michael Lewis, the diocese’s bishop, said: “I think what you are doing is fantastic. So, the primary thing is ‘thanks.’ Another thing I’d like to add is tell your friends, get more involved, spread in your state, spread across the country.”The Episcopal Church’s 79th General Convention adopted a resolution in support of Iraq’s Christians. In part, it resolved “that the General Convention encourages The Episcopal Church, working in partnership with the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, to provide prayers, friendship, and material support as determined by the needs and aspirations of Iraq’s Christians, as an expression of our love and recognition of their religious, cultural, and humanitarian inclusion in the sacred Body of Christ.”Bishop, on Stand With Iraqi Christians’ behalf, drafted the initial resolution.“The presiding bishop’s staff and the Global Partnership Team at The Episcopal Church have been immensely helpful in raising up Iraq as a long neglected and extremely time-sensitive focus of The Episcopal Global Mission commitments,” Bishop said in an email to ENS. “As Anglicans, Episcopalians are both free of the long-standing religious tensions and conflicts roiling Iraq and are known world-wide as honest and effective mission partners. As Americans, we have a special responsibility to extend the hand of friendship and support. We are uniquely equipped, and have a unique opportunity, to make the crucial difference in walking with our sisters and brothers in Iraq out of a crucifixion into a resurrection story.”– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

LOL, flattery will get you EVERYWHERE with Mama Mia….LOL Reply Remember when you used to go to the top of the Citrus Tower in Clermont and it was orange trees and groves as far as you could see? Reply I’m sorry but the Apopka City Council meetings are getting beyond petty. This latest fiasco yesterday at the council meeting concerning in- house fighting between Mayor Kilsheimer’s wife, Cheryl, and between the publisher of a history book that was sold in the Apopka History Museum, that has been yanked off the shelves, and also fighting with the most dedicated volunteer of all times at the Apopka Historical Museum who is 96 years old and has volunteered for 47 years (!!!) is the most nasty, absurb thing yet that has occurred, as of lately at the council meetings. I don’t know WTH is going on, as I have not been keeping up with the Apopka Historical Museum happenings, but what I witnessed at the Apopka Council meeting yesterday was shameful, and it sure looks bad! I am not on anyone’s side, honestly, but something there is not right! And did I actually hear Mayor Kilsheimer make a veiled threat to shut down the Apopka Historical Museum, because that is what I interrupted his words to be???? Did anyone else interrupt his words, like I did???? Let’s see, it is not only Mrs. Kilsheimer involved in the Apopka Historical Museum, as it is also Commissioner Velazquez’s husband on the board of the Apopka Historical Museum also. Wow…….is all I can say! The circus continues, plus allegations of African American historical memorabilia taken down from the walls of the Apopka Historical Musuem…..plus a box of gift chocolate candy given back to the sender, as in we don’t take “bribes”……..uh uh uh, SMH November 3, 2017 at 4:35 pm Reply Reply November 3, 2017 at 4:51 pm All I can say about what is happening on the Apopka City Council and also what is happening in this city is there still a very much divided city!

It was after you turned east off of 441 and on the south side of the road. Oh my gosh, the biggest attraction there was a young guy who must have been world famous as it was extremely funny to watch him clean tables as he worked, because I have never in my life seen anybody that was as fast as that guy was picking up dishes, and silver wear off of the tables….it was hilarious! The most amazing hand dexterity ever, on anybody! That young guy was the main attraction! It is long gone now, but we used to all go there together for a special occasion, like someone in the family’s birthday, or something like that. They had great food! We got plenty of hungry bears around here now, just don’t have Malcom’s Hungary Bear…… November 5, 2017 at 8:22 am Mama Mia I was looking for the commemorative engraved bricks that were sold to be placed around the mayor’s statue. Will they be put down later at City Hall, or will they be put in the KLN Park instead, and I wonder when the next statue of Mayor Land will be put in the park? Mama Mia November 3, 2017 at 4:18 pm An 18-month goal is realized as the APD is acknowledged as one of the top agencies in FloridaFrom the City of Apopka Public Information Office The Apopka Police Department was recognized today among the top law enforcement agencies in Florida, achieving its first-ever standards accreditation from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation. The police department was recognized at a meeting in Weston, FL by the Commission, which includes sheriffs, chiefs, judges, and other law enforcement executives who reviewed detailed evaluations of Apopka’s police operations, procedures, facilities, and equipment. The police department worked through the exhaustive accreditation process for 18 months.  In July, a Commission evaluation team visited Apopka to inspect all aspects of the police department, review extensive paperwork, interview staff and observe daily operations. As part of the accreditation process, Apopka had to comply with approximately 260 professional standards.  The Commission meets three times per year to oversee the accreditation program and to officially accredit agencies that passed the rigorous review process. The evaluation team leader reported: “It is without reservation the assessment team recommends to the Commission that the Apopka Police  Department be reviewed favorably for initial accreditation status.”  “This has been a goal for the Apopka Police Department for a number of years, and staff worked tirelessly to update policies and procedures and complete each required standard,” said Police Chief Michael McKinley. “This recognition will put the Apopka Police Department in an elite group of professional law enforcement agencies that meet or exceed law enforcement industry standards.”  The accreditation team acknowledged that Apopka exceeded minimum state and accreditation standards regarding officer training and that Apopka officers were skilled, well versed in policy, and at one point reported to the commission that, “…it was clear to the assessment team that the Apopka Police Department was dedicated to the accreditation process.”  Benefits of accreditation include the department’s obligation to conduct a complete review of agency policies and practices to ensure they are consistent with modern policing concepts. Confirming the agency not only has modern policies in place but that the officers are applying them effectively and consistently, increases the law enforcement agency’s ability to prevent and control crime. This also verifies it is providing consistent, modern, and transparent services to the public, ensuring high public confidence in the agency.  “The final assessment of everything we did, from how we dispatched calls, to how we investigated crimes, to how we handled petty cash, were reviewed by an independent team,” said Deputy Chief Randy Fernandez. “This critical evaluation went well, and nothing makes me more honored than to work with this city and the men and women of this police department.”  The inspection team consisted of law enforcement members who work in similarly situated departments. The consistent remark from the team members was that Apopka’s personnel were excited and appreciative of the review. Chief McKinley, during the review noted: “We have great equipment, a supportive city, and good benefits, but the knowledge, warmth, and welcoming attitude of our personnel was more than the accreditation team had seen with other assessments.” The accreditation is valid for three years, and the agency will be required to maintain compliance with applicable standards.  Congratulations to the Apopka Police Department for obtaining its first ever standards accreditation, and for being officially recognized. Sincere congratulations, however we have known for a very long long time, that our Apopka police force is miles above other police communities!!! #Apopka Proud Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Did you hear about the latest government screw- up that will cost unnecessary money to the taxpayers of Orange County? We got our property tax bill in the mail yesterday. If you open it, you will see that the envelope that they provided, has a window to tear off the part you return, and you are supposed to put it in the envelope with the address of the county’s P. O. Box to go to them, but instead the way the window is lined up, when you put your bill inside, to send it in to make a payment, you would be mailing it to yourself, so they are going to mail new bills out, and it is about 250,000 or 60,00 depending on how the article is read in today’s Orlando Sentinel, that has to be resent out with new envelopes, new bills, plus the extra mailing costs. Money wasted because of an oversight…….that is, unless the printing company makes good on the boo boo.

I am speaking of the same millage rates set, as in Orange County, and the millage rates for the City of Apopka, as other cities have various different millage rates. I see I used the wrong word in one of my above postings, where I was posting about how I interpreted Mayor Kilsheimer’s words he spoke about the Apopka Historical Museum…..I wrongly used the word “interrupted” his words, when I meant to type “interpreted” his words……sorry, I was thinking interpreted, but typed interrupted. I confess I have brain burn out at times….LOL! I think this is the last of my good time memory postings for awhile, as I am beginning to get depressed, as to how things used to be, compared to now.

November 4, 2017 at 11:15 am Reply Mama Mia November 3, 2017 at 4:15 pm So many places long gone….York Steak House, Freddy’s Steak House in Fern Park, the Steak and Brew, the Fairvilla Bowling Alley where my husband was in the R and R Alley Cat League, the Parkwood Plaza Bowling Alley, oh yes and the Montgomery Ward store, my mama and I lived at that place practically! Yes, me and my mama loved to go to Piccadilly and Morrisons, as they had such tasty food. This is what happened one time when we went to the Piccadilly on the South Orange Blossom Trail…..as I have said before my mother worked out there on the SOBT, and we frequently went drove out that way. One time my mother and I had ate there at the Piccadilly, and we were coming out to stop and pay for our food at the cashier, and all of a sudden I told my mother to just wait a minute, let me go to the restroom first, and just sit over there on the bench a minute, and then we will go pay for our meal. Well, an elderly lady was behind us, and she stepped forward and paid for her meal, as I went to the restroom. I came out, we paid for our meals, and as we exited the restaurant, the elderly lady was lying on the cement sidewalk, with her teeth knocked out, bloodied, and was injured with a broken bone. She didn’t fall, oh no, it was a purse snatcher that had punched her in the face, and knocked her down on the cement sidewalk in front of the restaurant as she came out of there! It was a young guy on a bicycle that grabbed her purse, and flew across the breezeway and across the road into an apartment complex. I tried to console the lady, and I was so mad that someone would do that to an elderly lady! It was horrible. The police were called, but it was appalling! I told my mom that if I hadn’t of told her to just wait on me and sit right there, I guess it would have been either my mom, or myself, the victim. It really gave a perspective of just how fast one can be turned into a crime victim! November 5, 2017 at 7:25 pm Mama Mia Reply Reply What happened to the total exemption that was proposed for people who lived in their homes for 25 years or more, that was on one of the ballots, that the voters got to vote on? I haven’t heard anything about it since the vote. It was my understanding that it passed. I am hearing about an extra exemption for people with certain high priced homes, that will get the benefit of an extra exemption, but nothing for a person with a more modest appraised home value. As it is, everyone who pays the millage rate, pays the same rate, whether your home is of a lower value or higher value. So when this latest exemption to come, is put into affect, the people with the lower appraised home values, will actually be paying a greater share, than the higher appraised home values. I ask, is that fair? I would have loved to ask Mr. Singh, but the public could not speak at the previous council meeting, after Mr. Singh’s talk. November 4, 2017 at 11:28 am This is the area that has been under recent construction on I-4. Witnesses said it was a very smooth landing, no damage to the plane whatsoever.

That and the big tree that fell on an Apopka home, that required a crane to remove it, at a very high cost, that made our decision easier to make. I love trees, but sometimes you have to protect your home, if you know there could be potential problems during hurricanes with them falling on your home. I got lots of items when the hotels had conventions held at them. My daddy would bring me all kinds things from the conventions. I loved it when they hosted the beauty conventions, as he would bring me all types of beauty products, hair spray, shampoo, and things that girly girls liked. They had fruit growers conventions, you name it, and I reaped the rewards….LOL People driving along I-4 were afraid the plane was going to move over on them, and collide with them, as they were driving along the highway and it was landing right next to them……..

Maybe that was it. We both look about four foot tall. I know we aren’t tall people, but I hope we look taller than that, normally……geesh. Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia Reply I enjoyed reading Apopka Critic’s article from the Orlando Sentinel archives of famous landmark businesses that are no longer around. Yes, I see the Langford Hotel in Winter Park. I knew that place well, as my father worked there in the early 70’s. He was either manager, assistant manager, or night auditor, don’t remember which, but that was his normal positions at the various big hotels he worked at. He also worked here in Florida at the famous San Juan Hotel that was on Orange Av. downtown Orlando, in the early 70’s. He used to get me a key and a room upstairs that I could stay in and watch tv and look down on the downtown Orange Avenue. They blew the San Juan Hotel up with explosives and demolished it in Orlando. One of the previous big hotels my daddy worked at, was in Charlotte, N.C. and it was the Queen Charlotte Hotel. Daddy would get me keys and rooms there to stay in and look down on the downtown streets, and to lazy around and watch tv upstairs, when the weather was too bad to travel back and forth on the icy roads, as my parents worked in Charlotte, but we lived across the state line, in another state. They blew it up too! Imploded it. This is funny because my daddy, my mama, and myself and my future husband here in Apopka used to go over to the Seminole Harness Racing over in Seminole County, Florida, near Longwood, all the time, as my parents loved to go there, and bet on the harness racing horses. They blew that place up too, and imploded it eventually! Places my dad liked to go, or places he worked at, they were all imploded! Reply November 4, 2017 at 10:38 am Here is another one for the old timers…..now I have never been there, and do not think, for one minute, that I have, nor would I ever go to somewhere like that place, but remember when Lake Apopka was known more for the swinger’s sex club out there, than for the Wildlife Loop…..LOL!!! There are times when I listen closely to Mayor Kilsheimer’s words, when he speaks at the city council, and I am at a loss, to understand his words sometimes. It is not his character flaw though, apparently he uses many phrases I have never heard spoken before, such as “it is not soup yet”, “camels peeking under tents”, and the latest, that I truly did not know what he meant, was “beyond the pale”……I guess I have led a sheltered life, but now I look these phrases and sayings, that the mayor uses, up on the computer, so I now understand what he is talking about. Maybe it is I, who needs a translator….LOL. This clearly shows that all of our citizens, no matter who they are, have something to offer, and something that we can learn, by listening to everyone closely. Here I go again with another correction: It was Malcom’s Hungry Bear restaurant, not Malcom’s Hungary Bear…..like a bear that wants to eat a lot, not like the country of Hungary…..sorry. Send me back to school, I guess, LOL Reply Please enter your comment!

I see some have live streaming video, such as Eustis. Mt. Dora has recorded audio, and Winter Garden, I don’t know. Big turnout at Tavares meetings. Watched a different place, Astatula, a tiny meeting. Interesting. I see on different city websites, historical boards serving, citizen’s advisory boards, architecture boards, and the list goes on and on…..of citizens involved in the local government process. And what did I learn yesterday from our city? That we actually have had several citizens volunteer their services for various duties, or capacities, and they were TURNED DOWN! Uh uh uh, SMH! I guess to qualify, one must have to have a relative, or spouse on the Apopka City Council…….is that how the policy works, or maybe it is the non-policy??????? Uh uh uh, SMH I had to go over and look at the John Land Champion Sycamore Tree once again, and compare it to the huge sycamore tree we had cut down in our backyard recently. Ours was taller than the city hall sycamore tree, and had a huge trunk near the bottom of it, but it was nowhere as big around as the John Land Champion Sycamore Tree. That one was planted in 1900, and is 117 years old, and I figured that ours was about 37 years old. Quite a bit of difference in age there. Ours had the top broken out before also, from the high winds of the past.

It irks me to no end. However, after this latest hurricane, I have decided to zip it, and just accept the butchered tree look, if it keeps the power going during the storms for everyone. I will just have to look the other way, I guess. Too many items going to the ballot that the voters approve of, are not getting implemented. Like the medical marijuana that passed with the voter’s approval. Why ask us if you have no intentions of implementing what the voters approve??? I remember when my husband could sit and smoke at the tables of the restaurants. I remember when you could drive to Cocoa in about an hour, now it would take you an hour to get through Orlando, with the heavy traffic, and all of the traffic lights. We remember when you could actually catch some fish at the coast, without a lot of effort. In fact, if it was blues season, you didn’t even have to put bait on the hook, just throw it out with no bait, and they would still bite and fast! I am serious.

Springboks and Wallabies thriller ends in another disappointing draw

first_imgMonday Oct 2, 2017 Springboks and Wallabies thriller ends in another disappointing draw For the second time in this year’s Rugby Championship, South Africa and Australia could not be separated as they played out an entertaining 27-27 draw on Saturday. The lead changed hands four times in the second half, as both teams treated Bloemfontein to some expansive rugby. Both sides scored three converted tries and had their number tens kick two penalties, but after the two sides drew 23-23 a few weeks back, it was the same outcome again, despite a late chance for the hosts.Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies had a long range opportunity to snatch the win with two minutes left in the game, but while still recovering from a bad knock to the head, his kick went wide and it ended in a stalemate.“We created opportunities and that was the pleasing thing,” said Bok coach Alister Coetzee.“The fact that we did not convert all of those, was not. This was a fantastic test match, with the physicality right up there and the skill set on display was very good and we were part of that. There were foundations laid and lessons learned tonight that will take this team forward.“We do create opportunities; players must never be scared to take chances. We feel that we were the better team out there tonight.”The game was fairly even stats wise overall, however, the Springboks had the majority of possession (59%) and forced Australia to make 120 tackles to their 82. The visitors struck when it counted though, and scored some well taken tries, the first to Israel Folau in particular.Winger Marika Koroibete scored twice, while the home side’s Ruan Dreyer, Jan Serfontein and Courtnall Skosan all crossed for what resulted in seven-pointers.The Wallabies now head to Argentina to take on Los Pumas in Mendoza, while the Springboks stay at home to face the challenge of New Zealand in Cape Town next weekend.View short highlights below (4:36) or extended highlights below that (20:00)Extended match highlights:credit: sanzaar/rugbyxvADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

How to transform four dwellings of the nineteenth century into dwellings of the twenty-first century?  In this building of the mid-nineteenth century, comprising four residential fractions, adjoining another identical building, we were able to perceive the essence from an ancient housing system.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraSave this picture!ProjetoSave this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe smaller scale apartments indicate that all the constituent elements of the original typology were considered as the minimum essential to inhabit. The relevance of the kitchen space, becomes perceptible, through the presence and position of the chimney; the absence of sanitary facilities as autonomous rooms, adapted over time in the balconies and kitchens; the importance of modesty and privacy demarcated by the doors that separated rooms; the confirmation of the interior room without direct sunlight; the living room as a social area, facing the front of the building. When we analyze these items in comparison with what characterizes the contemporary dwelling, we perceive the relevance of the intervention.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraGiven the need to reorganize the typology and knowing that the largest room in the house was the central bedroom, it became clear that all the interior walls, as well as the entire floor structure supported by masonry, would be demolished. Nevertheless, with the maintenance of the access stairs to the first floor and the refurbishment of the roof (together with the neighboring building), we decided to keep the division in four apartments, respecting all the original elevations and the relation with its surroundings.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraIn order to guarantee the best use of the eastern/west light and cross ventilation, we concentrated all the hydraulic infrastructures of the apartment – kitchen and sanitary installation – in a technical core in the center of the typology, dividing the space into two free areas. The circulation between these is fluid, without doors or corridors. The same solution is repeated on the first floor, where the void of the roof is converted into a mezzanine just above the technical core. To mark the intervention, we structured the apartments through a system of columns and beams in laminated wood, perpendicular to the direction of the original beams, keeping them autonomous of the facades. Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraSave this picture!Perspective SectionsSave this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe metric of the structure defines the position and geometry of the core and the mezzanine. Intervening in built heritage also implies establishing a dialogue between two different eras, regarding the way of inhabiting. In refurbishment jobs, we consider as a relevant aspect to understand and appreciate the genesis of the built structure in its socio-economic context, as well as the cultural transformations that define new ways of living in the contemporary city, enhancing the permanence and relevance of the intervention.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraProject gallerySee allShow lessIconic American Buildings Re-Envisioned in the Gothic Revival StyleArchitecture NewsHouse in Rubielos de Mora / Ramón Esteve EstudioSelected Projects Share Houses Architects: Lioz Arquitetura Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses, Renovation•Lisbon, Portugallast_img read more

Newspaper editor Dolgor Chuluunbaatar freed on bail

first_img July 28, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor Dolgor Chuluunbaatar freed on bail News Campaigns to go further RSF_en Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom MongoliaAsia – Pacific News October 28, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts MongoliaAsia – Pacific June 7, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Help by sharing this information The worldwide press freedom organisation said it was “very worried” about the editor’s treatment in prison, since the case was of interest to the government. It said it was quite unlikely that the privatisation of the paper and a state printing works had been done entirely by one person. It urged the government to clarify the matter and allow civil society representatives to visit the prison to check on Chuluunbaatar’s health and whether he had been beaten. He was accused by the court on 7 April of violating in 2008 article 150.3 of the criminal law about private and government property and faces a 15-year prison sentence if convicted. The paper’s offices are in a former printing works that belonged to the Ulaabataar city government. He denies the charges. His lawyers have applied nine times to various legal authorities for his release on bail but none have replied. Chuluunbaatar, a respected TV journalist and former editor of Mongoliin Medee (Mongolian News) and the Daily Independent, is currently vice-president of the Asia Journalist Association and secretary-general of the Confederation of Mongolian Journalists. Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about the arrest on 27 April of two journalists, Gantumut Uyanga and her husband Baviya Baatarkhuyag, after they criticised nature, environment and tourism minister Luimed Gansukh in the daily Udriin Sonin for moving with his family into a million-dollar house soon after the government signed an agreement with a Canadian firm, Ivanohe Mines, to mine copper and gold at Oyu Tolgoi.Uyanga told the news website News.mn that she and her husband were seized by four police and shoved into a van as they were leaving their house with a friend. “I was forced to kneel down and they smashed my mobile phone,” she said.Both journalists were freed a few hours later. The Ulaanbaatar court upheld on 5 May the dismissal by the Sukhbaatar court on 24 March of a libel suit brought by the minister against Uyanga, who also heads a civil society organisation. She said she would sue police for illegally arresting her.Reporters Without Borders calls on the government to “immediately decriminalise defamation” and said prosecution of journalists for what they wrote violated freedom of expression and the media, which were guaranteed by article 16 of the national constitution, article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and by the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, all of which Mongolia had signed.Mongolia ranks 76th out of 178 countries in the current (2010) Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index. Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Dolgor Chuluunbaatar, the editor of the daily Ulaanbaatar Times, was released conditionally on health grounds on 22 July. He is now in hospital receiving treatment for a serious eye infection.He had been held since 24 March on a charge of illegally privatizing the newspaper. No date has so far been set for the trial, at which he will face the possibility of a 15-year jail sentence.
