But in my experience, companies with a history of strong profitability and shareholder returns are more likely to perform well in the future, even during tough times. I’ve selected three shares today that I think are among the top stocks to buy today for investors building a long-term portfolio.A family favouriteMy first pick is soft drink firm Britvic (LSE: BVIC), whose UK brands include Fruit Shoot, Robinsons, J2O, Purdey’s, and Tango. The firm also produces drinks for PepsiCo under licence in the UK.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…I don’t know anyone who hasn’t consumed at least one Britvic product at some time in their lives. For many people it’s a daily event.You might expect sales to have held up well during lockdown, but unfortunately the group’s exposure to the pub and restaurant trade means sales fell by 16% during the three months to 30 June.The Britvic share price is down by around 12% this year, reflecting this weakness. However, management say they have seen strong growth in sales for at-home drinking and have gained market share. Over time, I expect the hospitality trade to recover too, fuelling continued growth.Looking ahead, Britvic shares trade on 14.5 times 2020–21 forecast earnings, with an expected dividend yield of around 3%. I see this as a top stock for investors looking for defensive picks.Kitchen upgrades could be popularLockdown and home working has turned many more people into enthusiastic home cooks. I think that could translate into healthy demand for new kitchens over the coming months.The latest figures from kitchen specialist Howden Joinery (LSE: HWDN) seem to support this view. Although sales fell by 29% during the first half of this year, the company says that during the four weeks to 11 July, sales were slightly ahead of the same period last year.The company says that a lot will depend on its key trading period in late autumn. It’s too soon to be sure if Howden will be able to avoid a recession-led slump in sales.However, I’ve admired this business for many years. It benefits from strong management, high profit margins, and has delivered steady growth – the stock has doubled since 2013.Howden’s share price is down by nearly 20% so far this year. Although the shares still trade on 18 times 2021 forecast earnings, I think this could be a fair price for a good business.A top stock for bankersMy final pick is City merchant bank Close Brothers Group (LSE: CBG). This FTSE 250 firm has been in business for more than 140 years and specialises in business lending.Close Brothers’ profitability is significantly higher than the big high street banks, thanks to its different lending profile. The group’s net interest margin was 7.6% during the first quarter of this year. The equivalent figure for Lloyds was 2.8%.Close Brothers’ share price performance reflects this. The group’s shares have fallen by 13% over the last year, compared to a drop of nearly 50% for Lloyds.The bank expects bad debts to rise over the coming year but is confident these can be handled. I’m confident too – Close Brothers has traded successfully through many recessions, including the 2008 financial crisis.As a long-term investment, I see this as one of the top stocks in the banking sector.

Tips for Hiring a Contractor

first_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Insist on a written contract. Make sure the contract is clear and concise and includes all the details of the work to be performed, owner and contractor responsibilities, permits to be obtained, payment schedules, delivery details, materials and terms for contract termination and cancellation.Make sure the project is properly permitted at the local building authority in order to avoid being fined, have the project stopped, or both. Also, keep in mind the contractor should be responsible for obtaining the appropriate permits.Protect yourself by asking the subcontractors and suppliers for a lien release or lien waiver, since state laws might allow them to file a “mechanic’s lien” against your home to satisfy their unpaid bills, forcing you to sell your home to pay them.Make payments contingent upon completion of work as established in the contract –this way, if work isn’t going according to schedule, payments are also delayed. Verify the contractor is properly licensed and insured. Ask for the contractor’s state-registered or certified license.You can check the Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) website at and search for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, or call the CILB offices at 850/487-1395.Check if the contractor (and subcontractors, if any) are insured for liability and worker’s compensation. If not, you will be liable in case of accidents or damages. Keep Records. Keep all records in one place, including contract copies, change orders, correspondence, a record of all payments (you may need receipts for tax purposes), photographs of the work and a log of all phone calls, conversations, and activities.If necessary, cancel a contract in the proper manner. Be sure to follow the cancellation procedures set out in the contract and send the notification by registered mail with a return receipt to be signed by the contractor.Report a Problem. If any problem arises, try to resolve it with the contractor. Follow any phone conversations with a letter sent by certified mail with a return receipt and keep a copy for your files. If not, you can find information on available consumer protection resources at your state attorney general’s website at, your local home builders association website at, or dispute resolution programs at TAGSContractorFEMAHiring Tips Previous articleCity Attorney: Community Trust more appropriate for Gospel music festivalNext articleTime-saving kitchen hacks for the holiday Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter From FEMAAs survivors of hurricanes Hermine and Matthew begin repairing and rebuilding their damaged homes and businesses, it is important to evaluate contractors carefully before committing to one. Before and after you’ve settled on the best contractor for the job, there are steps you can take to help avoid some common pitfalls.Before you hire a contractor:Conduct research and check references. Consider hiring a contractor you know and trust. Otherwise, check with friends, neighbors or former customers who have used a contractor to see if they were satisfied with the work done. To find contractors in your area, visit the Florida Home Builders Association website at at least three written estimates. This is the minimum recommended. Compare and ask about details, if you find unexpected variations in price and work to be carried out.Don’t do business with someone who knocks on your door for business, offers discounts, pressures for an immediate decision, only accepts cash, asks you to pay everything up-front or expects you to get the required building permits.Don’t fall for a loan scam, or let anyone pressure you into signing documents you haven’t read or that have blank spaces to be filled in after you sign.Don’t deed your property or agree to financing through your contractor without shopping around and comparing loan terms. Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! After you hire a contractor:Payment:Try to limit your down payment. A reasonable down payment is 30 percent of the total cost of the project, to be paid upon initial delivery of materials.Don’t pay cash. Use a credit card or a check instead. Avoid on-the-spot cash payments, don’t let payments get ahead of work completed, and don’t pay the full cost of the job up-front. Find information about financing larger projects at when you can withhold payment. If there’s a problem with merchandise or services rendered, and you’ve made a good faith effort to work it out with the contractor, contact your credit card company about withholding payment.Pay wisely. Before signing off and making final payment, check that all work meets contract requirements; you have written warranties for materials and workmanship; there is proof that all subcontractors and suppliers have been paid; the job site has been cleaned up and cleared of excess materials, tools, and equipment; and that you have inspected and approved the completed work. A reputable contractor will not threaten or pressure you to agree to final payment if the job is not finished properly.last_img read more

The Austin / Edmonds + Lee Architects

Built on the site of a one-time auto-body shop at Pine and Polk streets, The Austin is designed to fit into its trendy industrial neighborhood, which features a century-old oyster bar and a new-school barbershop that draw hipsters and old-timers alike. Its white-clad and glass façade lets in sunlight and city views; inside, architects Edmonds + Lee introduced the architectural idea of California Organic Modernism, weaving a carefully responsive interior design throughout the project’s architectural bones.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanThe lobby/ lounge is designed as a space to work and relax, with comfortable seating, music, and a front desk that has a concierge, takes lunch deliveries, and keeps beverages on tap. The space is saturated with rich, enveloping gold tones, accented by slim planks of white oak slats arranged in a quick staccato that disappear into the ceiling, the graceful move enhanced by the gentle glow of cove lighting. Decorative metal surrounding the fireplace brings to mind the automotive history of this particular city parcel, and also reflects the colors of the room back onto itself. The public areas are punctuated by ethereal moments interjected into the everyday: the mail room features cove lighting used to frame the striking matte black mailboxes that follow the walls like a ribbon, the keyholes transformed against that backdrop into a graphic element all their own. Anchored by a soaring soft white ceiling and the subtle texture of oak plank floors, it’s both decadent and minimal, bringing a warmth of tone and design to modernism.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanThe residences offer a graceful and cozy counterpoint to the bold public areas, opening up with a bright color palette and expansive, arresting views. The 100 residences in the building feature an open-plan design, with kitchens made for entertaining and bathrooms with floating vanities. The heavy concrete columns that make up the interior structural support also act as both a visual and spatial element in the homes, hinting at separations in program while drawing all the focus to the expansive city views just past them. A warm, neutral palette here lets the light take center stage as it sweeps across the room throughout the day.Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanProject gallerySee allShow lessDebris House / WallmakersSelected ProjectsMiller Park In Downtown Chattanooga / Spackman Mossop Michaels + Eskew Dumez RippleSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:San Francisco, California, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Indiana Moves Forward on Rural Broadband

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Moves Forward on Rural Broadband Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Indiana Moves Forward on Rural BroadbandScott RuddBringing high speed internet to rural Indiana is something has received a lot of focus and discussion, but not a lot of action. Last week Indiana’s state government started taking action on this important issue. Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch appointed Scott Rudd as the first state Director of Broadband Opportunities.  Rudd told HAT his first task will be to convene a Broadband summit, “That will pull together all the stakeholders to start to tackle the challenge of providing high speed broadband service to rural communities.”Suzanne CrouchCrouch said that Rudd understands the important impact broadband access has on the quality of life for Hoosiers who are able to access it, “He understands that rural broadband can provide opportunities for employment, help others continue their education, and offer more effective and timely communication.”Estimates on the cost of bringing high-speed service to rural areas has been astronomical. Rudd says it is going to take a combination of resources to begin to make this happen, “It is going to take a combination of any and all agencies, providers, funders, private, public, all of the above to solve this issue that is so important to Indiana.”Rudd says initially there will be funding from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs. A block grant program will be awarded to 5 communities in the state to develop plans to improve service in their areas. Interested communities must complete a survey – open Friday, Aug. 17 through Tuesday, Sept. 4 –  to be considered for the planning grant. The communities will then form a plan that will work on the current broadband conditions, creating a long term vision based on their needs and identifying solutions for achieving that vision. Crouch said, in addition, the state legislature will be asked for additional appropriations for broadband development.As for a time table when farmers could actually see some improvement in service in their area, Rudd was vague, “I think we will get the parties together at this summit and begin to move forward as quickly as possible.”Rudd most recently operated as the town manager and economic development director for the town of Nashville, IN. There he oversaw seven town commissions, three task forces, directed four departments, and served as the town’s public information officer over the course of the last four years. He founded the Brown County Broadband Task Force to help steer the county’s broadband strategy and secured more than $20 million in private broadband investments to expand access to more than 7,500 homes and businesses in the area.“Scott has made significant strides in increasing broadband access to Brown County, which is a rural community that thrives on their tourism industry,” Crouch said. “His experience and dedication will help transform the broadband accessibility in our state, and I am eager for him to bring in his perspective and experience to help our rural communities.”Crouch said Rudd will be working closely with the Indiana State Department of Agriculture to work with farmers and farm businesses within the communities on ways to make sure they are keeping up with the advancing technology that will keep the agriculture industry thriving. Rudd will also be working closely with the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs to collaborate with communities and identify the best ways to attract reliable, affordable, high-speed Internet to rural Indiana.“I look forward to seeing Scott take the progress he has made in Brown County and transitioning that work to the entire state of Indiana,” Crouch said. “Broadband plays a vital role in our economic growth, and I am excited to see what he can do to help take our rural communities to the Next Level.”Rudd holds a Bachelor’s degree in Public Affairs from Indiana University and resides in Nashville, IN, with his wife Erika and their son Carter.

The route would start at the Mission/Meridian Gold Line station; head east along Mission Street to Garfield Avenue; head south along Garfield Avenue to Huntington Drive; and then east along Huntington Drive.A second, starting at Garfield Park; then heading west along Mission Street to Diamond Avenue; heading south along Diamond Avenue to El Centro Street; heading west along El Centro Street to Meridian Avenue; heading north along Meridian Avenue to the Mission/Meridian Gold Line station; and then taking the Gold Line to the next stop.South Pasadena planners reportedly estimate city costs at $66,500, for police, public works and staff time.The current Metro Open Streets Grant includes a 20% local match. If the funds are distributed equally among the eight cities, each city would receive $49,200 and be required to contribute $9,840 for the local match (providing a total of $59,040 per city). These funds would be used to offset the cost to the City. However, additional funding will be required to fund the event. BikeSGV is currently exploring co-sponsorship and partnership opportunities.

Allegedly, the woman was dealt with cruelty by her husband and other members of her in-laws family. She gathered courage ten days back and left the matrimonial home with the help of another man (petitioner no. 2). According to the pleadings, the petitioner No.1 left the house as per her own will and is living at different places in the District Jhajjar, Haryana. The petitioners apprehended that the private respondents wouldcause harm to them, therefore, they had given representations to the police respectively. However, the representations had not been looked into so far and therefore, they have approached the Court for protection of their life and liberty.After hearing counsel for the petitioners, the Court found that the writ petition “does not contain any pleading muchless narration of a cause of action in favour of petitioner No.2 for filing petition along with petitioner No.1”.Considering the pleadings and submissions of the counsel, the Court was of the view that petitioner No.1 does not deserve any concession, “particularly, when she has failed to explain any reason for leaving the company of her husband”.Besides, the Single Judge noted that the petitioner No.1 has given the address of her matrimonial home in the petition, but has claimed that she is residing at different places in district Jhajjar. “During the course of hearing, it is not disputed by learned counsel that no complaint has ever been made by petitioner No.1 either against the husband or any of the other family members of the in-laws”, the bench added.The bench further observed that admittedly, the marriage is 12 years old and the children are also residing with the father. “It does not appeal to prudence that after leaving the matrimonial home, the petitioner No.1 has not contacted her parents, but chose to live alone at District Jhajjar”, remarked the bench, proceeding to state that except for the bald allegation that the respondent-husband treated the petitioner No.1 with cruelty, no supportive material has been placed on record by her.The Court found that not only the petition for protection is founded on frivolous grounds, but it also amounts to abuse of the process of law. “Apparently, the petitioner has not approached the Court with clean hands and has deliberately suppressed the material facts, therefore, this Court finds that she deserves to be saddled with costs”, the bench stated. Not finding any reason to exercise the extraordinary writ jurisdiction, the petition was dismissed with costs of Rs.25,000/- to be deposited by the woman in the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana, COVID-19 Relief Fund.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
