I’d buy the FTSE 250 to get rich and retire early 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.

Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The performance of the FTSE 250 since the beginning of 2020 has been hugely disappointing. The index has experienced one of its fastest and most severe crashes of all time. Following this performance, it’s understandable that some investors might be eying up the relative safety of a Cash ISA instead.However, despite the apparent safety the Cash ISA appears to offer in comparison to the FTSE 250, it has some significant drawbacks.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…Cash ISA drawbacksAt present, many investors are turning to defensive assets, such as gold and cash in response to the market’s sharp decline.This flight to safety is understandable. Since the beginning of the year, the FTSE 250 has fallen by nearly 30%. No one wants to see their hard-earned money lose that much value in just a few months. Investors who were smart enough to move to cash at the beginning of the year have likely seen a positive return on their money.Nonetheless, in the long run, investor sentiment towards riskier assets is likely to improve.Indeed, in previous bear markets, confidence has always returned over the medium term. That could mean that the prospects for profits from the FTSE 250 are brighter over the long run than a Cash ISA.Different returnsAt the time of writing, the best flexible Cash ISA rate on the market is just 1.19%. That’s down from 1.35% at the beginning of the year.With inflation standing at 1.5%, this rate implies your money will lose -0.31% of its purchasing power every year.In other words, putting your money in a Cash ISA at the current rate will likely lead to losses over the long term.On the other hand, while the FTSE 250 recovery may appear somewhat unlikely at the present time, over the long run, the index has produced an impressive performance.Even after recent declines, the index has returned around 5% per annum since inception. That implies that the FTSE 250 could be a much better place to invest your money than a Cash ISA over the long run.Therefore, now could be an excellent time to buy the FTSE 250. Further declines cannot be ruled out in the short run, but many FTSE 250 shares now appear to offer excellent value for money.FTSE 250 bargainsSome FTSE 250 stocks have experienced falls of over 50% since the start of the year. In many cases, these companies have strong balance sheets and wide economic moats.This suggests that when investor sentiment improves, these companies could produce significant returns for investors.As it’s impossible to tell, at this stage, which companies will survive and prosper, and which will fail, owning a basket of stocks, such as a FTSE 250 tracker, could be the best way to play the recovery.Considering the index’s past track record, it looks as if, in the long run, the FTSE 250 could offer impressive total returns relative to the Cash ISA. 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.

Under the trend of “no real estate speculation”, the urban leasing industry has ushered in a period of great transformation. From renting a room to a good house to a desired lifestyle, people’s understanding of life in the city will gradually rise to a new more valued one. As to the proposition that urban culture will become the lifestyle itself, we try to explore the future through a series of research-based residential design practices. Through the “Piston Room”, we discussed the time utilization of the Beijing ant tribe’s apartment space. Through the “Capsule Home”, we’ve thought about the possibility of new space in the city’s extreme collection capsules. In 2016, we had a chance to systematically explore the “living organism” of a complete city, which gave birth to the ” Home on the Roof ” of Shenzhen Yuanzheng industrial park.Save this picture!South Area. Image © Chao ZhangSave this picture!Axonometric DiagramSave this picture!North Area. Image © Chao ZhangThe project is located in the area of Bantian Shenzhen, a field of IT companies as an industry area. The original building is a dormitory building in an industrial park. After many years of idle, now dilapidated. As for the first to third floors of the area is used by other companies, we can only use two parts of the existing indoor space, one is the first floor of an independent community entrance, the other is the third to seventh floors of the dormitory building as a living unit. It means that the entire community will not have any public service space facilities. To solve this problem, we found that there are two huge roof spaces on both sides of the buildings, With the roof, we may be able to design a ” Home on the Roof “, where people can run, see the sunset, or just be in a daze. In this way, the community forms a communication to the city.Save this picture!North Area. Image © Chao ZhangHow to build a living organism in based of the urban renewal strategy situation? How to make a dramatic design? These questions have become the focus of our design. We’ve built a “Geometric Community System” with a yellow “Link Trail”. Through the entrance, a rooftop ring, air track, landscape gallery, and multi-level residential units, the entire residential community like an immersive stage in a city. Like a drama scene extending from the street, the community shares health and scenery with the city.Save this picture!Overall. Image © Chao ZhangThe entranceThere is a deep porch around the original skirt building since the typical climate characteristics of Shenzhen, and the entrance lies at the backside of the building. A hanging canopy which is much deeper than the original eave was designed to introduce the flow into the building. The 10-meter-long Perforation plate floats above the flow, leading the flow into the YOU+ community, which also give customers the first impression by the bright yellow from the bottom to the top.Save this picture!Entrance. Image © Chao ZhangLoop on the rooftopLoop is a symbol of sharing and unity, while the cross represents the brand and the energetic of the YOU+. A new geometric pattern formed by the loop and the cross was designed to create a multiple functional public area on the third-story rooftop. Residents step out from the building to the central circled public space along a lifted platform covered by a white canvas, the diameter of the circle measured at 17 meters. A cross pattern is consisted by four containers in the space. The lifted platform drops a hint of leading to the rooftop because of users walk above the ground, at the same time, the sights of users are lifted to gain the view outside the parapet. Residents have the chance to relax and fulfilled by the luxuriant woods around the field.Save this picture!North Area. Image © Chao ZhangSave this picture!South Area DiagramSave this picture!North Area. Image © Ke ChangThe four containers are used as reading room, kitchen, museum and dining-hall respectively, by connecting with the circled platform, a multiple functional space is formed. Cool gentle breeze blow through the space after opening the glass folding doors, sitting in the corridors and watching the sunset or playing board games in the containers are wonderful ways to enjoy the elegant sky.Save this picture!South Area. Image © Chao ZhangThe small central space provides views in different orientations, the space is extended and floating when the users are watching the view from different directions.Save this picture!South Area. Image © Chao ZhangAerial runwayDaily exercises are also needed for those ambiguous young couples. The south area is a sport area with same color and materials as the north area. The arrangement of the container changed from the cross pattern to the zig-zag pattern and the outer platform transferred from a circle to an economic 120-meter runway. When looking out from the southern runway, a basketball coach is located at a nearby field and the felling of going all out together getting stronger although they are in two separate space. Running in the sky is much more attractive than stay in the gym when the night falling done.Save this picture!South Area. Image © Chao ZhangSave this picture!South Area. Image © Chao ZhangVitality galleryThe low dorm corridor serviced the room arrayed both side before, the doors of the room was located face to face, which created a sense of living together and reduced the life quality. How to change the situation by a simple restructure? We push the entrance door in to the room for a certain distance, it makes all the entrances are hided in the hole and people can only notice the side of the hole which guarantees the privacy of the corridor and avoids the sense of impetuosity created by the endless corridor and the dense doors. Each door of the 95 rooms is framed by the yellow canopy, ground and the wall, the three factors define a private room for every resident and it is a hint for the cozy life behind the door.Save this picture!Corridor DiagramSave this picture!Corridor. Image © Ke ChangResidential unitThree problems were mainly considered during the design process of the residential unit. Firstly, how to create a multi-tiered living experience in the long and narrow room. Secondly, how to save the room and combine the saving and living function in a single piece of furniture. Thirdly, how to solve the southern climate problem by design. After considering the above three questions, two kinds of layout were design for diverse groups.Save this picture!b Sample Room. Image © Chao ZhangLayout a: Room inside RoomThe “Room inside Room” was design according to the consideration of the privacy. If a new type of furniture could be design specially for the room, the serval functions of a traditional apartment will be held at the same time including the entrance-hall, corridor for saving, bedroom, living room and balcony. A box with holes are placed near the bathroom to surround a bedroom and the boundaries of the box give definition of the other functional space. The box is not a totally closed room, it was placed at a certain distance away from the wall, and the gap makes all the space connected like the Chinese garden. The sense of occlusion is avoided in this way. As for the materials, the room is covered by cozy wood which is different from the outside yellow paint. The overlapping wall builds a sense of delicate. At last, the box provides serval positions for savings and the users can easily get the things when lying on the bed.Save this picture!Room DiagramSave this picture!a Sample Room. Image © Chao ZhangLayout b: Internally Connected RoomAccording to the survey, some young people are willing to living alone rather than invite friends to their rooms. In this case, a large and well-functioning room was designed. The bed is the core of the whole room, the balcony becomes the bay window beside it while the table becomes the platform and the sofa is the extended area of the bed. A pure and barrier free cozy space is created due to the integrative furniture.Save this picture!Internally Connected Room DiagramSave this picture!b Sample Room. Image © Chao ZhangEpilogueDuring the process of the reconstruction, some difficulties and challenges never seen before were shown up. The compress of the design and construction period and the limitation of the original building brings us many problems. For the public area, the usage of pre-cast container avoided the political risk and saved the cost and time.Urban residential update design is a complex subject, searching the potential creative positive space in the original environment is our strategy. The form is secondary while the background is vital. Learning from the city is to create a multi-tiered city system rather than building a single architecture by meticulous connection and amalgamation. The best residential form is created by eliminating the boundary of the residence and putting it into the city. Castle in the Sky is a typical example of this theory.Project gallerySee allShow lessIT House / andramatinSelected ProjectsTosan-ri Guest House / guga Urban ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bantian District, Shenzhen, Guangdong,ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Man Sentenced to 95-to-Life for Beating South Pasadena Woman

first_imgPublic Safety Man Sentenced to 95-to-Life for Beating South Pasadena Woman Published on Friday, August 26, 2016 | 12:58 pm A homeless man convicted of beating and burglarizing a 79-year-old South Pasadena woman in August 2012 was sentenced to 95-years-to-life in state prison today.Alonzo Bernard Johnson, 53, was found guilty by a jury on May 4 of three felony counts: first-degree residential robbery, kidnapping to commit robbery and first-degree burglary.Johnson entered the woman’s home through an open door as she was waiting for her grandchildren to arrive, said Deputy District Attorney Presciliano Duran in a statement released to the media by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.According to Duran, who prosecuted the case, Johnson asked the victim if he could charge his cell phone. When she said no, he became angry and held her at knifepoint, demanding money. He then forced her into a bedroom face down, attempted to tie her up with an electric cord and began beating her with his hands.The woman’s two grandchildren, ages 8 and 12, walked into the home as the she struggled with Johnson, who demanded she give up her jewelry while continuously punching her in the head. At that point, Johnson grabbed what jewelry he could and ran, according to Duran. The victim suffered a ruptured ear drum and a brain bleed as a result of the assault.Johnson has been in and out of jail since the 1980s, using many aliases to commit crimes, said South Pasadena Detective Bill Early to The Patch in 2012. His previous felonies included robbery and burglary.Authorities linked Johnson to another crime in June 2012 through fingerprints and DNA, where he burglarized the home of another elderly woman.

Economic Outlook: Consumer Confidence and The Fed

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Nicole Casperson in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines The Federal Reserve Bank of New York recently released results from its September 2017 Survey of Consumer Expectations, which showed overall increases in pessimism.Specifically, the survey found that expectations about earnings, spending, income growth, home prices, financial situations and the stock market all “deteriorated.”The fraction of respondents who believe they are financially better off declined compared to last year to 32.3 percent, while the proportion of respondents who expect being better off financially a year from now declined to 40.3 percent.The mean perceived probability that U.S. stock prices will be higher 12 months from now also fell from its August level of 43.1 percent to 42 percent.Median home price change expectancies fell to 3 percent its lowest level since March 2016. In addition, median expected household income growth fell from 2.7 percent in August to 2.2 percent; the lowest level recorded since February 2014 and well below the series high of 3 percent in July 2017, according to the survey results.Additionally, “the average perceived probability of missing a minimum debt payment over the next three months increased for the third month in a row,” from 12 percent in June, to 13.4 percent in September.As consumer’s hope in the economy dwindles, the Fed’s expectations might be different. The Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) recently released its minutes of the Committee meeting held on September 19-20, 2017.In the latest FOMC minutes, the Fed indicated that an interest rate hike later in 2017 is likely, even with low inflation. However, Federal Reserve officials see the economy expanding at a steady pace.The meeting also shows members anticipating that the factors slowing down inflation will pass. The expectation is that inflation will hit the 2 percent target the central bank believes is consistent with healthy growth.Housing updates included, “interest rates on 30-year fixed-rate residential mortgages moved lower over the intermeeting period, in line with comparable-maturity Treasury yields.” While growth in mortgage lending for home purchases “picked up in July and August compared with its pace over the second quarter.” However, credit conditions remained tight for borrowers with low credit scores or hard-to-document incomes.The Fed also discussed recent information on housing activity, which suggests that real residential investment spending was decreasing in the third quarter after declining in the second quarter. Therefore, “starts for new single-family homes edged down, on net, in July and August, and starts for multifamily units moved lower in both months.”Building permits issuance for new single-family homes—which tends to be a good indicator of the underlying trend in construction—declined in July and August.To view the whole summary of FOMC minutes, click here.
