“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Generating a resilient passive income from dividend stocks may be a simpler process than you realise. It could even replace your entire wage in the long run, and allow you to enjoy financial freedom.Through purchasing high-quality stocks that have affordable dividends while they offer good value for money, you can build a generous passive income which increases at a brisk pace over 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…High-quality, defensive businessesBuying companies that have solid balance sheets and strong cash flow could improve the reliability of your passive income. Such businesses may be better equipped to overcome difficult economic periods, and may be less likely to reduce their dividends should trading conditions deteriorate.It may be a good idea, therefore, to focus your capital on stocks that have defensive qualities. In other words, buying companies that are less affected by the performance of the economy than most of their index peers. They include utility stocks, some consumer goods businesses and healthcare companies which generally enjoy relatively high levels of demand even if the economic outlook is weak.Certainly, it may be possible to obtain higher dividend yields from cyclical stocks with less robust balance sheets. But they may be more likely to reduce their shareholder payouts at times during the economic cycle, thereby making them riskier investment opportunities for someone that relies on their portfolio for a passive income.Dividend affordabilityCompanies that can easily afford their dividend payouts may be more likely to raise them, and less likely to reduce them. This can impact not only on whether your passive income increases at a faster pace than inflation, but also how robust it proves to be in the long run.Assessing dividend affordability can be undertaken by comparing a company’s net profit to its dividend payments. It may also be worth considering its track record of dividend payouts, and whether they have increased consistently. And, through contemplating a company’s financial prospects and forecasts, you may be able to ascertain the likelihood of its dividends being paid at their current level. This can provide an insight into whether they are likely to offer a stable passive income in the coming years.Low valuationsOf course, buying stocks while they trade on low valuations can help you to replace your wage with dividend payments. Lower valuations can mean higher yields, which may help you to maximise the income from your capital. They may also lead to strong capital returns in the long run which make it easier to generate a passive income.Clearly, the stock market has experienced a hugely volatile period since the start of the year. This may continue in the near term, but over the long run dividend stocks appear to offer a relatively attractive means of generating a generous passive income. As such, now could be the right time for long-term investors to purchase income stocks.

“So he’ll have to bring that into the game in some form or other, whether that’s in the set-piece or in the loose. But it’s a big opportunity for him.”Luke Fitzgerald starts for Ireland at inside centre after Robbie Henshaw lost his race for fitness with a hamstring injury. Donnacha Ryan‘s versatility in the second and back rows sees him preferred to Toner on the bench. Ireland: Rob Kearney; Dave Kearney, Jared Payne, Luke Fitzgerald, Keith Earls; Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray; Jack McGrath, Rory Best, Mike Ross; Iain Henderson, Paul O’Connell (capt); Peter O’Mahony, Sean O’Brien, Jamie Heaslip Replacements: Sean Cronin, Cian Healy, Nathan White, Donnacha Ryan, Chris Henry, Eoin Reddan, Ian Madigan, Simon Zebo Ireland’s backs coach, Les Kiss, has backed lock Iain Henderson to have a standout World Cup partnering captain Paul O’Connell after the Ulster player beat out Devin Toner for a starting position.At the age of 23, Henderson already has 19 international caps to his name, but will make just his fifth start against Canada this Sunday in Cardiff.And while Toner developed a great relationship with O’Connell over the past two RBS 6 Nations campaigns, Kiss believes Henderson is ready to step in and make his mark.“Iain has done very well and I don’t think it’s just in this off-season either, he’s come in over the last two years, and he’s been learning the ropes, not only through Paul O’Connell but also through Devin Toner,” Kiss told the Press Association. “He’s learned a lot in that time. “It’s another step up for him, a big tournament and it will be exciting for him. But we’ve seen what he can deliver. The potential’s there but if he’s got his mind on and his head right he can be a damaging player. Backs coach Les Kiss believes Iain Henderson will make the most of his chance to cement his position in Ireland’s second row at this World Cup LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Iain Henderson is tackled by RIchard Wigglesworth and Billy Vunipola

The design developed from the client’s brief, which was to have a modern house inspired by the family’s roots in Kerala, India. We looked towards traditional palace construction of Kerala for inspiration. We noticed a few key features that most of these structures portrayed, such as – the verandah that wrapped the living spaces all around, the appearance of a heavy masonry base on the ground floor, with thick arches and carved columns and a first floor which appeared to be lighter in terms of materials and overall treatment. This became the inspiration for the front façade of the building. Carved columns, which are a prominent element of traditional Kerala architecture, were adopted but with a contemporary twist.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaWe fashioned them using a metal sheet, cut out to match the silhouette of a traditional column and placed as a cross. These columns frame the front of the house and sit on a large continuous overhanging balcony. The overhang in the front not only protects the south façade but also allows for ample cross ventilation. The planning has been kept simple. The open and continuous public and semi-public spaces are on the ground floor along with the guest bedrooms. Individual private spaces for the couple and their children, along with a separate family area are on the first floor. The main exercise of designing the plan as an outward-looking structure was to take full advantage of views. The front opens up to a quiet street and the rear of a park. A centrally located skylight over the staircase allows a mild draft of air by ventilating it at the upper level aiding the movement of air.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThe two sides of the building show the strong presence of exposed brick masonry. The earthy terracotta colour makes a direct reference to the materiality of Kerala architecture and stands in sharp contrast to the light metal balconies pushing through in the front and rear. Openings in the masonry are kept minimal in order to accentuate the openness in the front and rear. The undulating brick masonry is a playful interpretation of a Mangalore tiled roof surface – another element seen extensively in Kerala. The masonry swells out to allow for openings and is constructed using the Flemish bond. As the brick gradually corbels outwards, its negative imprint is seen on the inner side – almost as an acknowledgement of the drama outside!Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaSave this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThe use of materials for the interiors was also inspired by those seen in a traditional Kerala home. The combination of cane screens with teak wood is an attempt to add that element of nostalgia to an otherwise minimal interior. The continuous, almost monolithic granite floor helps further accentuate the open ground floor plan. The house is powered by solar panels placed on the roof of the structure.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaProject gallerySee allShow lessCasa ECS / Giuseppe Gurrieri StudioSelected ProjectsThree-Roof House / PLAIN WORKSSelected Projects Share “COPY” 2018 “COPY” Year: India Photographs ArchDaily CopyHouses•Bengaluru, India Architects: Kamat & Rozario Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/888970/corbel-house-kamat-and-rozario-architecture Clipboard Corbel House / Kamat & Rozario ArchitectureSave this projectSaveCorbel House / Kamat & Rozario Architecture Area: 3650 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Corbel House / Kamat & Rozario Architecture Save this picture!© Niveditaa Gupta+ 33Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Projects Houses CopyAbout this officeKamat & Rozario ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBengaluruIndiaPublished on February 14, 2018Cite: “Corbel House / Kamat & Rozario Architecture” 14 Feb 2018.

Cat welfare charity Cats Protection is placing cat care ‘take-one’ leaflets in 2,500 veterinary surgeries across the UK to increase awareness of the charity and offer free guides to cat care.The leaflets, designed by TDA, will outline a selection of free guides ranging from how to treat and prevent parasites to moving home with your cat. Owners will be able to apply for as many of the guides as they like, raising the profile of Cats Protection and allowing it to expand its database with warm contacts for future fundraising campaigns. “This campaign is a great way to reach cat owners and position Cats Protection as the expert in feline welfare,” said Cats Protection Chief Executive Derek Conway. “Providing the leaflets in vets’ surgeries gives the initiative enhanced credibility.” Advertisement Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Individual giving Howard Lake | 17 September 2003 | News 28 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

TCU linebacker Garret Wallow leads the Frogs and ranks third in the Big 12 with 77 tackles this season. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) Facebook Linkedin ReddIt printThis year more than ever, NCAA football teams have had to be flexible. Fans have been limited, games have been canceled and players have been forced to sit out due to COVID-19 protocols.TCU Football felt that first hand when their matchup with cross-town rival SMU was postponed on Sept. 5. Though there was an attempt to reschedule, conflicts prohibited the matchup from being plausible, and the Frogs were forced to go to uncharted territory for their tenth game of the 2020 season–Louisiana Tech.“Well, we usually only have seven days to get ready for them. That’s just normal,” head coach Gary Patterson said. “You’d have to play them like you’re playing someone you haven’t played before early in the season. You get as much information as you can.”The Frogs and Bulldogs have not met since 2011, when TCU defeated Louisiana Tech 31-24 in the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego, Calif.For TCU, the matchup represents a chance to earn their sixth win of the regular season and improve their bowl standing. For linebacker Garret Wallow, though, the game means more, as one of his childhood friends and teammates will be suiting up for the other team.Wallow, originally from New Orleans, was a three-star recruit and the No. 37 overall player in the state of Louisiana out of John Curtis Christian School. Before that, he ran track and played football with Louisiana Tech running back Israel Tucker.“It’s definitely a good excitement,” Wallow said about playing the Bulldogs. “One, the running back [Tucker], I actually grew up with him. We ran together on our relay team and played football together.”Tucker is the Bulldogs’ leading rusher with 497 yards and four touchdowns this season. Even though Louisiana Tech saw all four of their November games either postponed or canceled, the running back exploded in their first game back, rushing for a career-high 161 yards and two scores against North Texas last weekend. TCU linebacker Garrett Wallow (30) sits back in coverage against Oklahoma State on Dec. 5, 2020. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Wallow has been the backbone of the TCU defense both as a leader and a player all season, ranking third in the Big 12 with 77 tackles. On Monday, he was named a semifinalist for the Lott Impact Trophy, highlighting his work on and off the field.When asked if he still had the speed to rival his old track teammate and take him down on the field if needed, Wallow laughed.“I don’t even know, man. It’s been a long time since we went at it,” Wallow said. “He’s definitely a good guy. He’s a hard runner. I’m excited to play him. I talked to him last week, and we’re both excited to play each other again.”Tucker plays a big role in a Louisiana Tech offense that averages 31.8 points per game (third in C-USA), despite only totaling 335.5 yards per contest. Patterson said that their Big 12 comparison would have to be the high-flying Texas Tech Red Raiders.“They’ve got some guys who can run around and do some stuff,” Patterson said. “You’ve got to get ready to play. All the screens, all the quick game; and then they’ll throw vertical at you, so you’ve got to get ready to play.”The TCU defense has given up just under 26 points per game this season. For the Frogs to win, Wallow will need to get the better of his former teammate, preventing Tucker from ripping off big runs and opening up opportunities for the Bulldogs’ offense.TCU kicks off against Louisiana Tech this Saturday, Dec. 12, at Amon G.
