See all posts by Royston Wild Seeking ISA stocks to retire on? I’d buy this 6% dividend yield and never sell up! Image source: Getty Images. As a long-term owner of shares in Britain’s housebuilders — Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey both sit proudly in my investment portfolio — news flow on Wednesday has gone a long way to boosting my confidence in their profits prospects.When I bought shares in those FTSE 100 behemoths, I was drawn by their market-leading dividends, a quality that also led me to consider buying Bovis Homes (recently renamed Vistry Group (LSE: VTY)). I might have overlooked it back then but I was convinced that it remained a top stock to buy for the years ahead. And trading results released today show just why I was so upbeat.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…Record breakerVistry Group — which changed its name after acquiring Linden Homes earlier this month — said today that the number of completions it booked in 2019 rose 3% to 3,867 units, underlining the resilience of the domestic housing market despite great economic and political uncertainty.The homebuilders have not proved totally immune to those broader pressures, though. The FTSE 250 firm said that the underlying selling prices of its properties ducked between 1% and 2% in the second half of the year as “market uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the general election led to some increased pressure on pricing”.However, it added that a lack of cost inflation, allied with the company’s own efforts to bring down costs, helped it to absorb the impact of these lower asking prices. And as a consequence, it said that operating margins last year improved from those of 2018.For the year as a whole, Vistry saw the average selling price for its homes rise to £279,000 from £273,200 a year earlier. The asking prices of its private homes (sales of which rose by 11% year-on-year to 2,687) rose to £341,000 from £337,400 previously.So strong was the homebuilder’s performance last year that it expects to report another year of record profits for 2019, adding that the final bottom-line result is likely to sweep past previous expectations.More to come!So much for the doom-mongers who suggested that homes sales would dry up in the run-up to Brexit. In fact, the market continues to go from strength to strength, with Vistry also saying that “we have a strong forward sales position and trading to date has been very positive, with consumer confidence returning and industry fundamentals remaining strong.”But don’t just take the builder’s word for it, with latest Office for National Statistics data also released on Wednesday illustrating the improving state of the market. According to the ONS, house price inflation leapt to 2.2% in November from 1.3% in the previous month, the highest reading for around a year.No wonder City analysts expect Vistry to post fresh record earnings in 2020, a 23% bottom-line rise being predicted. And this leave the business trading on a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 9.8 times. Combined with a mighty 6.1% dividend yield, I reckon the construction colossus is too good to pass up at current prices.

Despite the FTSE 100’s 13% rally since the start of the month, there are still a number of cheap UK shares available to buy.Certainly, their prices are likely to have risen in many cases from their levels earlier this year. However, they could offer wide margins of safety that translate into impressive capital returns 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…The track record of the FTSE 100 shows that a buy-and-hold strategy can be effective in capitalising on its growth prospects. As such, now could be an opportunity to invest money in a diverse range of companies for long-term growth.Investing money in cheap UK shares after the FTSE 100’s rallyThe FTSE 100’s rally has lifted the valuations of many cheap UK shares. Investor sentiment has improved after positive drug trials for a coronavirus vaccine. However, many sectors are still unpopular among investors. They include businesses that operate in industries facing challenging near-term operating conditions. As such, they may experience weak sales and profit growth over the coming months.However, over the long run, they could deliver impressive returns. History shows the economy’s performance has always improved after its difficult periods. And, with vast amounts of fiscal and monetary policy stimulus already announced, their operating conditions and share prices could improve significantly over the coming years.As such, buying cheap UK shares could be a profitable move. In many cases, they trade at discounts to their FTSE 100 index peers. They also have valuations lower than their historic averages. Since stock market valuations are likely to revert to their long-term averages over time, there could be scope for upward reratings as investor sentiment improves.Building a portfolio of FTSE 100 sharesClearly, the near-term prospects for the FTSE 100 and cheap UK shares are somewhat precarious. Investor sentiment may have improved of late, but risks such as the ongoing pandemic and Brexit may hold back the performances of companies and the stock market in the short run.Therefore, it could be logical for an investor to purchase shares on a regular basis over the coming months. This may allow them to keep some powder dry in case there are more attractive buying opportunities in the FTSE 100 further down the line.Furthermore, building a diverse portfolio of cheap UK shares could lessen overall risk. A diverse portfolio may be less susceptible to challenges in a specific industry or region. This may provide greater stability in the near term, as well as higher returns in the long run.Scope for further price gainsWith the stock market having a track record of delivering sound recoveries from its bear markets, a further rise in the FTSE 100’s price level seems likely in the coming years. As such, buying today’s cheap UK stocks and holding them for the long run could be a means of capitalising on it. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Leon Sampson, a deacon and deputy from the Episcopal Church of Navajoland, spoke to the importance of Resolution C008, which calls for the further advancement of the House of Bishops’ 2011 commitment “‘to advocate for a fair, ambitious, and binding climate treaty’ by making every effort to fully and completely participate in future meetings of the United Nations Conference of Parties on Climate Change as an active, faithful and engaged voice for all of God’s good earth.”Bishops addressed the earth’s unfolding environmental crisis during a meeting in Quito, Ecuador, in a pastoral teaching to the church in which they said, “The mounting urgency of our environmental crisis challenges us at this time to confess ‘our self-indulgent appetites and ways,’ ‘our waste and pollution of God’s creation,’ and ‘our lack of concern for those who come after us’ (Ash Wednesday Liturgy, Book of Common Prayer, p. 268). It also challenges us to amend our lives and to work for environmental justice and for more environmentally sustainable practices.“Christians cannot be indifferent to global warming, pollution, natural resource depletion, species extinctions, and habitat destruction, all of which threaten life on our planet. Because so many of these threats are driven by greed, we must also actively seek to create more compassionate and sustainable economies that support the well-being of all God’s creation.”Further extraction of natural resources in Bears Ears – which extends into Navajoland – and other proposed oil, gas and mining projects in Navajoland provide much-needed jobs, but also threaten people’s health and the environment, said Sampson.In December 2017, the Trump administration announced it would reduce by 2 million acres two national monuments, Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. The shrinking of the two monuments in Utah opens up the possibility of oil, gas and other natural resource development and represents the largest reduction of federal land protection in U.S. history.In April, a Native American advocacy group appealed the Trump administration’s decision to the United Nations, claiming desecration of a sacred site is a human rights violation.Most of the environmental stewardship and care of creation resolutions are listed here. In September 2016, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry identified care for creation as one of the three pillars of the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, along with reconciliation and evangelism.The committee called on the Rev. Melanie Mullen, the church’s director of reconciliation, justice and creation care, to testify to Resolution A013 as to the need of an officer to oversee the stewardship of creation. The officer would oversee the Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation’s grant program.The 78th General Convention created an Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation during its meeting in Salt Lake City in 2015. It took some months for the advisory council to convene, but once it did, it quickly began a small grant program, awarding 40 grants to projects throughout the Episcopal Church, and it oversees three environmental justice sites.Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers Director Bill Slocumb spoke in favor of Resolution A010, which calls for planting “Paris Groves” at each of the church’s 85 camps and conference centers. The groves – planted with native tree species – would “serve as a visible witness to the significance of the Paris Accord and do the practical work of sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere.” The resolution also calls on General Convention to commend all Episcopal schools, camps and conference centers in making environmental stewardship and care of creation key components of formation in the 2019-2021 triennium. It also asks for Episcopalians’ support and that each person reaffirm their baptismal vows and plant a tree in one of the groves.Emily Hopkins of the Diocese of California testified to Resolution C020, which calls for the church to “support a national tax on carbon-based fossil fuels based on the Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which would impose a carbon fee on all fossil fuels and other greenhouse gases at the point where they first enter the economy; align U.S. emissions with the physical constraints identified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to avoid irreversible climate change; and use this carbon fee through a trust fund to make equal monthly per-person dividend payments to all American households.”The committee suggested modifying the resolution’s title, making it clear that it is a “fee” not a “tax.”Hopkins acknowledged that the Province IX dioceses located in the Caribbean and South America would not benefit from a carbon fee and dividend; she acknowledged the contribution of resource-rich states to the building of the United States and the need for extractive-dependent states to be assisted in their transition to clean energy.Over the years, General Convention has passed more than 50 resolutions addressing environmental stewardship and creation care. This year, the Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation submitted 14 resolutions (read its Blue Book report here), many strengthening previous resolutions and some addressing more contemporary concerns.– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of the Episcopal News Service.

Please enter your name here COVID-19, pool chemicals, and the risk of Naegleria fowleri info here by the Florida Dept. of HealthFrom the Florida Department of Health in Orange County NewsroomSummer is right around the corner, and the Florida Department of Health in Orange County reminds families to be safe when enjoying fresh water activities, especially the week before Memorial Day, which is recognized as Healthy and Safe Swimming Week (May 18 – 24, 2020).Remember, everyone plays a role in preventing injuries, drownings, and illnesses caused by germs in the water.What about COVID-19 and water?According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds. Proper operation and disinfection of pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds should kill the virus that causes COVID-19. It is encouraged to limit close contact with people outside your home in public spaces, both in and out of the water.Preventing disease outbreaksChemicals like chlorine are added to pool water to kill germs and stop them from spreading, helping to keep swimmers healthy. However, mishandling pool chemicals can cause injuries. Operators of public pools, hot tubs/spas, or water playgrounds and owners of residential pools or hot tubs/spas can take steps to prevent pool chemicals injuries, such as reading and following directions on product labels of pool chemicals before using them. Visit https://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/swimming/index.html.Naegleria fowleriTake precautions when enjoying fresh water activities locally or when traveling abroad, especially swimming in warm freshwater lakes, hot springs, rivers, creeks and ponds to avoid Naegleria fowleri. It’s a naturally occurring amoeba that can be found in any body of fresh water and in poorly maintained swimming pools and hot tubs. The amoeba is not found in salt water.The amoeba can cause an infection known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). Almost always fatal, the amoeba travels up the nose to the brain and spinal cord. This generally happens during activities such as swimming, diving, waterskiing or wakeboarding.Infections usually occur when it is hot for prolonged periods of time, which results in higher water temperatures and lower water levels.Although infections are rare, most prove to be fatal. Seek medical care immediately if you develop a sudden onset of fever, headache, stiff neck, and vomiting especially if you have been in warm fresh water within the previous 2 weeks.People should always assume there is a low level of risk for infection whenever entering warm fresh water.Below are some tips to help reduce your risk of infection:Avoid water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater, hot springs, and thermally-polluted water such as water around power plants;Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels;Keep your head out of the water, hold your nose shut or using nose clips when taking part in water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, or hot springs; andAvoid digging in or stirring up the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas.For information on the Naegleria fowleri amoeba, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web site: https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/naegleria/index.html.###About the Florida Department of HealthThe department, nationally accredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board, works to protect, promote, and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county, and community efforts.

The Mid West region is central in the Irish manufacturing sector, and has been for much of the history of the state.“LIT plays a leading role in ensuring that manufacturing in this region continues to have the ability to adapt and to change and remain at the cutting edge when it comes to technology. Meanwhile GTMA brings all the leading technology suppliers together, so that industry can also benefit from their knowledge, products and technology.”“LIT is therefore delighted to be part of this event that not only allows us to build strong partnerships but facilitates an exchange of ideas,” added Prof Cunnane.Manufacturing Solutions 2018 is also supported by Enterprise Ireland, Fáilte Ireland, Limerick Chamber, Shannon Chamber and Regional Skills.The event will take place in LIT, Moylish Campus on Wednesday June 13, 2018 from 8.30am to 5pm.For more information and to register for the showcase, please visit www.manufacturingsolutions.ie.More about education here.

KenWiedemann/iStock(HONOLULU) — Two cruise ships with no onboard reported cases of coronavirus, are not permitted to let passengers off to explore Hawaii, officials announced.As a precautionary measure to prevent spread of the virus — formally known as COVID-19 — the Hawaii Department of Transportation will not allow passengers on the Maasdam operated by Holland America Line and the Norwegian Jewel operated by Norwegian Cruise Line, to disembark.“The health and safety of all people in Hawaii is always at the forefront of operational decisions. Presently, all state resources are focused and directed towards containing the spread of COVID-19. Allowing more than 2,500 passengers and crew to disembark will further strain these resources,” said Jade Butay, the director of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDT).The Norwegian Jewel has about 1,700 passenger and was scheduled to arrive on March 22. The Maasdam has 842 guests and 542 crew members and was scheduled to arrive on Friday.Butay did agree to allow the ships to dock, refuel and restock. Hawaii was not a final port for either of the ships.All cruise ships are on a 30-day pause in operations which took effect March 14, but cruises already at sea either ended their itinerary or continued on to their next destination.The Cruise Lines International Association said about 40 ships with 90,000 passengers were at sea when President Donald Trump announced a ban last week that restricts travel by many foreigners to the U.S.Both the Norwegian Jewel and Maasdam were already at sea when the announcement was made. A Norwegian Cruise Lines spokesman told ABC News on Thursday that the 23-day Australia and French Polynesia itinerary “was modified to disembark in Auckland, New Zealand,” on Friday, but “due to multiple port closures in the area, further modifications were made.”Two vessels were rerouted to Miami after they were turned away from their home port in Puerto Rico, even with no reports of infections. Authorities in Argentina, Chile and Brazil placed ships on quarantine after reports of positive coronavirus tests.There are 16 cruise ships that have canceled scheduled visits to Hawaii during the 30-day suspension in operations, the HDT said.Norwegian Cruise Line said to The Associated Press that one of its vessels was turned away by Fiji and New Zealand. The Norwegian Jewel refueled in American Samoa but was not allowed to disembark at the Port of Pago Pago.The transportation department previously said officials were working to direct the Maasdam to Honolulu Harbor so passengers will have flight options out of Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.“It has been confirmed that there will be no disembarking of passengers, not even to go straight from the port directly to Honolulu airport to catch their flight home.” said U.S. Rep. and former presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard during a telephone town hall meeting on Wednesday. “After they are refueled and resupplied, the ships will be sent off to another destination that is not Hawaii that will allow them to discharge their passengers.”There will be teams ensuring that people don’t leave the ships, Lt. Gov. Josh Green said during the telephone town hall.Request for comment from Holland America Line was not immediately received. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
