Royston Wild | Tuesday, 4th February, 2020 | More on: FUTR Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Forget Bitcoin! I’d rather buy this FTSE 250 dividend growth stock “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The euphoria surrounding Bitcoin has died back down in recent sessions after the blistering start to 2020.Currently trading around $9,300, the virtual currency has leapt 29% in a little over a month. Some may think I’m insane but it’s these rampant price gains that make me a Bitcoin bear. There’s been no significant newsflow to have driven investor demand in recent weeks, exacerbating my concerns that this is a bubble waiting to burst. And I’m not the only one.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…Fears over the legitimacy and the uses of Bitcoin are still raging and threaten to cause prices to crash again. I’d much rather put my money to work through stock investment, a market that can reward long-term investors with returns of up to 10% a year. And there’s one particular growth and income share I’ve got my eye on today.Good news everyone!Strong trading at Future (LSE: FUTR) made it one of the FTSE 250’s success stories in 2019. It drove a 200%-plus share price advance in the course of the year. And if news at the start of 2020 is anything to go by investors could be cheering more monster gains in the new year.The magazine publisher continues to enjoy brilliant momentum, it reported this week, with “strong organic revenue growth” and “improved conversion of higher margin revenues” helping to drive the bottom line. Business has been so robust in fact that Future said that results for the full fiscal year (to September 2019) would be “materially ahead of current market expectations.”To round off another top release, Future said that the strong cash conversion of its media divisions meant that its cash position was better than forecast, too.Big plansA strong balance sheet bodes well for both growth and dividend investors. The electrifying profits growth of recent years has been driven in part by Future’s aggressive drive for acquisitions. Magazine revenue leapt 20% in the last fiscal year as Future used its chequebook to expand its geographic exposure and its range of titles. News that cash generation remains strong could pave the way for more M&A moves, too.Its exceptional balance sheet means that shareholders can look forward to more chunky dividend hikes, too. Future doubled the annual reward in fiscal 2019 to 1p per share. And City analysts are expecting another chubby year-on-year increase this time out, to 1.25p.In fact, it’s quite possible that these payout forecasts will be upgraded as the financial period progresses. The number crunchers have continued upping their earnings estimates in the last few months, too. Right now they are predicting bulky annual increases of 13% and 27% in fiscal 2020 and 2021 respectively.Future doesn’t come cheap, and trades on a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 23.7 times. A 0.1% corresponding dividend yield doesn’t quicken the pulse either. But despite these numbers I reckon the company’s brilliant profits outlook makes it a top buy for long-term investors. 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.

Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here America has long stood as a shining light of hope and security around the world, and few exemplify that spirit more than the members of our military. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and the Coast Guard are part of an unending fraternity of brave patriots who have served our country with honor and made tremendous sacrifices so that we may live free.On Veterans Day, we salute those who have proudly worn the uniform of the United States of America and the families who have served alongside them, and we affirm our sacred duty as citizens to express our enduring gratitude, both in words and in actions, for their service.In Apopka, veterans, elected officials, and members of the community gathered at the Veterans of Foreign Wars/Apopka Community Center this morning to celebrate, honor and remember the sacrifices of the military at a Veteran’s Day program.Army veteran William Boyd was the featured speaker. He asked the question ‘how do you recognize a veteran?’“Only 10-percent of our nation’s population has served in the military,” he said. “And that 10-percent was forever changed by doing so. No matter their status in life, they will stand a little taller knowing they served their country.”Post Commander Artie Vecchio also spoke of honor among veterans and the appreciation he has for the military and their dedication and sacrifice.Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer opened the ceremony with a brief story about his uncle who fought in the Pacific Theatre of World War II, and then read a poem written by US Army Sergeant Josh Helterbran who is with the HHC 224th Engineer Battalion currently stationed in Iowa.The soldier stood and faced God,Which must always come to pass,He hoped his shoes were shining,Just as brightly as his brass.“Step forward now, you soldier,How shall I deal with you?Have you always turned the other cheek?To My Church have you been true?”The soldier squared his shoulders andsaid, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t,Because those of us who carry guns,Can’t always be a saint.I’ve had to work most Sundays,And at times my talk was tough,And sometimes I’ve been violent,Because the world is awfully rough.But, I never took a pennyThat wasn’t mine to keep…Though I worked a lot of overtimeWhen the bills got just too steep,And I never passed a cry for help,Though at times I shook with fear,And sometimes, God forgive me,I’ve wept unmanly tears.I know I don’t deserve a placeAmong the people here,They never wanted me around,Except to calm their fears.If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,It needn’t be so grand,I never expected or had too much,But if you don’t, I’ll understand.”There was a silence all around the throne,Where the saints had often trod,As the soldier waited quietly,For the judgment of his God.“Step forward now, you soldier,You’ve borne your burdens well,Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,You’ve done your time in Hell.” The example our nation’s veterans set throughout their lives is a testament to the drive and perseverance that define the American spirit and character. Let us never forget our obligations to these heroic individuals and never forget those who paid the ultimate price for America’s liberty.Happy Veteran’s Day and thank you for your service to us all.

The construction of this single-family home was carried out on lot #26 of Las Encinas Neighborhood, in Pozuelo, Madrid. The lot, with a surface area of 14,077.83 m2, has a trapezoidal shape, with access from its southern end. Its borders have the following dimensions: 160.52 m to the north; 58.36 m to the east; 187.33 m to the south; 102.45 m to the west.Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio Vicens+RamosWe decided to place the house near the access street, so that most of the lot could be used with privacy.Conceived as a “geode”, the massiveness it presents with its large blasted granite cladding contrasts with the glass, which appears as a “hole within a rock, covered by a generally crystallized substance”. Nevertheless, this “geode” is not natural. Instead, the hand of man intervenes in it, and leaves its mark with the vertical fissures found on the blasted granite…Save this picture!Floor Plan 0The house develops around two floors and one basement, and is inscribed in a 35- by 20-meter rectangle. The southeast corner of the basement has an overhang so as to create an entrance to the garage that is set in with respect to the general alignments of the house. In that set-in space we also find the entrance for the service staff, with a staircase that goes up to the first floor from the games room; next to the entrance we also find a small lift directly communicated with the pantry.Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio Vicens+RamosThe garage allows for the comfortable parking of ten vehicles, and the space dedicated to the building utilities is right next to it. From the garage the home can be accessed through a pivoting door. The hall, with the main staircase and the elevator that provide communication with the upper floor is illuminated through a glass wall that allows for the vision of a sunken garden courtyard. The indoor pool looks out onto this courtyard, with a space for sauna. From the hall one can also access a projection room and a storage room.Save this picture!© Eugeni PonsThe main entrance, through the ground floor, is accessed from the exterior parking courtyard through an offset that creates a low porch excavated within the constructed volume. The entrance hall has a double-height ceiling and a staircase and elevator open up to it, with skylights. The south bay of the building is used for the house service, and includes a guest bathroom, service living room, office, kitchen, pantry, washing room, and dinnerware and glass storage. It also has access to the basement stairs and the service staircase that goes to the upper floor.Save this picture!Floor Plan 1The rest of the ground floor is occupied by the dining room, family room, a living room with a double-height section and skylights, a double-height office, and another porch that has also been excavated into the general volume of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio Vicens+RamosThe upper floor is dedicated exclusively to bedrooms. The main staircase allows access to a hall that, on one hand, looks down into the void above the entrance hall, and on the other hand, opens up to the landscape through three openings in the form of courtyards, always set back from the perimeter of the general prism.Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio Vicens+RamosThe master bedroom is found in the northeast corner. In the opposite corner we find the two guest bedrooms next to the service staircase, each with its own dresser, full bathroom and terrace. The rest of the plan is occupied by five bedrooms for the children, all of them with their own bathroom.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse of Sieves / Francisco CadauSelected ProjectsTrading “Should” for “Could”: Opening up Debate on the Obama Library DesignArticles Share 2004 Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/504800/single-family-home-in-las-encinas-vicens-ramos Clipboard CopyHouses•Madrid, Spain Year: Save this picture!Courtesy of Estudio Vicens+Ramos+ 10 Share ArchDaily 2004 Spain Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeVicens + RamosOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMadridHousesSpainPublished on May 13, 2014Cite: “Single-Family Home in Las Encinas / Vicens + Ramos” 13 May 2014.

It was to be an indeterminate space, since its use would also be indeterminate, but it should be comfortable in both winter and summer.
