Private equity groups Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and TPG are thought to be working on offers for the ailing wine business, after Foster’s said on Wednesday it would still try to split from its beer business. Reports also pointed to rival brewer SAB Miller as a potential bidder for the world’s second-largest wine firm.Sales of Foster’s wine, including Beringer, Penfolds and Wolf Blass, have been hit by a deep US recession and a trend away from low-end, bulk wines in Australia. The private equity groups are thought to be using the firm’s woes to try and trigger a sale of the entire company.

Here’s how I’d begin building a passive income by investing £5,000 in UK shares

first_img 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 I’d consider buying these as well. Enter Your Email Address UK shares have underperformed relative to global stock markets since the Brexit referendum, but they still offer some of the most generous dividends in the world. I think this makes them a great way to build a passive income for my retirement.I can take that income free of tax, provided I invest inside my Stocks and Shares ISA allowance. If the Covid vaccination rollout continues to steam ahead, I think UK shares could play catch-up with other stock markets. Especially with Brexit divisions fading.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…If the UK market does outperform this year, I could enjoy share price growth on top of dividend income. That will also be tax-free inside my ISA.I’m building a passive incomeI still have around 15 years to go before I start drawing an income from my portfolio. In that time, I’ll re-invest all my dividends for growth, to turbo-charge its value.The last year has been bad for dividend investors, as companies have either cut or suspended payouts during the pandemic. Despite that, AJ Bell predicts the FTSE 100 will yield 3.8% this year. That’s impressive, given last year’s dividend bloodbath. And highly attractive at a time when the average easy access account pays just 0.18%.I can generate a much higher yield by investing in individual company stocks. Financial services companies Legal & General Group, Standard Life Aberdeen and Phoenix Group Holdings currently yield 6.77%, 6.81% and 6.58% respectively.Plenty of other top UK dividend shares also impress. Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline yields 6.37%, Vodafone Group yields 5.92%, while utilities National Grid and SSE yield 5.69% and 5.52%.These are all stocks I’d happily buy today and hold in my portfolio for the long term. I might even invest in the banks such as Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group, in the expectation that they’ll start to restore their dividends this year.Mining giants such as BHP Group and Rio Tinto also tempt me, yielding 4.13% and 4.68% respectively. Other top UK shares such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Unilever offer slightly lower yields, but scope for dividend growth.I’m buying a blend of UK sharesThe important thing to remember is that dividends aren’t guaranteed. If earnings slip, payouts can quickly come under pressure, as we saw last year. That’s why I’d invest my £5,000 across a spread of companies, in case some of them slip. I’d also keep a pot of cash handy in retirement, as a reserve in case dividends fall.That £5,000 isn’t enough to fund a decent retirement income on its own, no matter how well my stock choices perform. I’ll also make regular monthly payments, and pay in further lump sums when I have more cash to spend.Investing in the UK shares is never a surefire bet. Markets could crash if mutant coronavirus strains delay the recovery. That’s why I always invest for the long term. History shows that, over time, they should deliver higher income and growth than almost any other asset class. Here’s how I’d begin building a passive income by investing £5,000 in UK shares Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Namibia remain 20th, the lowest ranked of the participating teams at RWC 2011.Brave efforts go unrewardedThe weekend’s other five matches had no impact on the IRB World Rankings, the difference between the two opponents too great, as highlighted by the 11 places and 18.07 rating points which separate RWC 2011 hosts New Zealand and Tonga.While New Zealand’s victory over 12th ranked Tonga in the opening match was never in doubt after braces from Israel Dagg and Richard Kahui, the same could not be said for the outcomes in Invercargill, Auckland and New Plymouth where upsets looked on the cards for a time.Lying 10 places below their opponents, 17th ranked Romania fought back to lead 24-21 with 13 minutes remaining in Invercargill, only for two tries by Simon Danielli to spare Scotland’s blushes with a 34-24 victory in Pool B.France were also winners on Saturday, three tries in the last 11 minutes sealing a 47-21 victory over Japan, who had battled gallantly and given Les Bleus plenty to think about. France’s win over 13th ranked Japan did not improve their rating, allowing England to creep above them. 43(43)UGANDA47.69 15(15)FIJI71.01 42(42)NETHERLANDS47.71 40(40)KENYA49.18 18(18)USA65.00 30(30)CZECH REPUBLIC53.78 92(92)LUXEMBOURG32.49 Position (last week)Member UnionRating Point 22(22)URUGUAY60.00 68(68)SERBIA40.81 24(24)SPAIN59.43 The eight matches played so far at Rugby World Cup 2011 may have resulted in only one positional change in the latest IRB World Rankings, but there was no shortage of thrills and spills with Wales, Argentina and Romania all coming agonisingly close to causing upsets.England are the side on the rise, swapping places with France to take over fourth spot and the mantle as the leading northern hemisphere nation in the rankings behind New Zealand, Australia and South Africa after their tense 13-9 victory over Argentina.Just when it had seemed that the passion of Los Pumas would carry them to victory over the higher ranked England in the first Test at the impressive Otago Stadium, replacement Ben Youngs broke through to score the only try of the match and leave Argentina ninth in the rankings.It was another replacement who provided the decisive score in Wellington as Francois Hougaard dived over for a try which gave defending champions South Africa a slender 17-16 victory over Wales in their much-anticipated Pool D encounter on Sunday.The win ensured that South Africa retain third spot, reducing the deficit to Australia by a rating point, and left a Welsh side led by the youngest ever Rugby World Cup captain in Sam Warburton in sixth and now four points adrift of France.These matches were two of only three over the weekend involving sides ranked within five places of each other, the other being Fiji’s Pool D encounter with Namibia at the Rotorua International Stadium on Saturday. 19(19)RUSSIA61.92 53(53)MALTA45.23 28(28)MOLDOVA54.09 5(4) FRANCE83.78 3(3)SOUTH AFRICA86.71 69(69)DENMARK40.60 17(17)ROMANIA65.69 33(33)UKRAINE53.22 47(47)BERMUDA45.94 Scotland also remain unchanged in seventh after their victory over Romania, just ahead of Ireland who were made to work hard for a 22-10 win over the 18th ranked USA Eagles, while four second-half tries saw Australia run out 32-6 winners over Italy in the other Pool C encounter.IRB World Rankings – 12  September  2011 31(31)KAZAKHSTAN53.62 83(83)JAMAICA36.35 61(61)CHINA41.78 39(39)SWEDEN50.99 12(12)TONGA72.48 76(76)BARBADOS39.13 72(72)ZAMBIA39.94 55(55)MADAGASCAR44.31 6(6)WALES79.77 90(90)NORWAY35.02 57(57)CHINESE TAIPEI43.62 37(37)GERMANY51.81 91(91)VANUATU34.77 29(29)BRAZIL54.04 50(50)CROATIA45.56 79(79)AUSTRIA37.76 64(64)THAILAND41.46 74(74)ST.

Championship Blog 1st Leg: London Welsh v Bristol

first_img Surprise package: Nick Scott of London Welsh scorches away from the Bristol defence LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By Richard GraingerLondon Welsh will be in the driving seat tomorrow as they take a 19-point lead to the Memorial Ground, as they try to pip Bristol for a Premiership place London Welsh take a 19-point lead to a sold out Memorial Stadium next Wednesday following a master-class of precision rugby in atrocious conditions at the Kassam on Wednesday night.Bristol opened and closed the scoring, but sandwiched between Marco Mama’s fourth minute touchdown from a catch and drive, and Adrian Jarvis’ 78th minute penalty, was the antithesis of everything that saw Bristol finish the regular season as the division’s top try scorers.The blunt instrument that is the Exiles’ pack — ironically now coached by Darren Crompton — dominated scrum time and denied Bristol a foothold in the game when they most needed one.The Exiles have been criticised under Justin Burnells’s watch as one-trick ponies, but when the trick works as effectively as this, frankly, who cares?Nathan Trevett was bundled over the Bristol line after 15 minutes in a carbon copy of Mama’s try, and Gordon Ross added the extras to give Welsh a lead they never looked like relinquishing.Five minutes later, following the charge down of a Ross clearance, Chris Cook scooped up a turnover deep in the Exiles 22, with referee Wayne Barnes indicating penalty advantage to the hosts.  The Exiles’ scrum-half fed Nathan Morris who sent pace-man Nick Scott away to beat two defenders and run in from 60 metres. When Ross converted, and added a penalty before the interval, the Exiles were in dreamland.Bristol were not helped when they lost skipper and new talisman Ryan Jones, following a serious looking injury to his left ankle after half an hour. Jones, who had been instrumental in Bristol’s early dominance at the breakdown, left the field on a stretcher and was followed by scrum half Luke Baldwin two minutes later.Watchful eye: Justin Burnell deserves credit for masterminding comprehensive winThings got worse for the visitors four minutes after the interval, when flanker Carl Kirwan touched down following another catch and drive after Bristol had infringed for the ninth time.Ross converted to give the Exiles a 24-5 lead and proceeded to orchestrate Welsh’s ariel bombardment, pinning Bristol deep in their half, with delightful dabs and penetrative touch finders from Seb Jewell and Tom May to layer the symphony.With three-quarters of the game gone and Bristol showing no signs of reducing the deficit, director of rugby Andy Robinson replaced fly-half and acting captain Nicky Robinson with Adrian Jarvis.But with Welsh now rampant, Nick Scott almost bagged the Exiles’ fourth following a Seb Jewell break but couldn’t take the scoring pass in difficult conditions. Bristol managed to stem another attack from a Richard Thorpe scrum pick up, but Wayne Barnes adjudged Nick Koster’s intervention illegal and sent him to sit out time in the bin.Despite direction to kick to the corner from the Exiles’ technical area, Ross and May opted for the points. Bristol managed to weather the last ten minutes without further catastrophe, and Jarvis struck a penalty to reduce the deficit to 19 points with two minutes remaining.center_img Agony and ecstasy: London Welsh were good for their win over a dejected BristolPerhaps years of practice from coaching International rugby prepared Andy Robinson for magnanimity in defeat, praising the Exiles for outplaying his side in every department.“You’ve got to give London Welsh real credit,” Robinson said, “they took us on in every area and they dominated every area.“It’s about performance,” he added, “and it is about being able to bring your A game at this stage, and we didn’t bring our A game.”The cliché that this is only half time, was much in evidence from the hosts post match; indeed, they will know that Bristol, who scored 38 tries in 23 games, will be a force to be reckoned with next Wednesday in their final game at the Memorial Stadium. Three quick tries and that mountain is climbed.Bristol, who delighted crowds with ‘nothing to lose’ rugby when they had everything to lose, will not go quietly into the night, even against the side with the division’s best defense. But they will need to be more precise, more disciplined and more effective in the tight if they are to affect a comeback of Lazarus proportions.Put a date in your diary for tomorrow evening and expect a rollercoaster ride. There will be thrills and spills in this one yet!Play-off second-leg. Bristol (8) v London Welsh (27) Memorial Stadium. Kick-off 19.45Bristol: Wallace; Amesbury, Tovey, Mosses, Short; Robinson, Tipuna (capt); Traynor, Johnston, Cortes, Glynn, Townson, Koster, Mama, Eadie.Replacements: Lawrence, Hall, Hobson, Skirving, Grindal, Jarvis, Hughes.London Welsh: Awcock, Stegmann, May (capt), Jewell, Scott, Ross, Cook, Trevett, Morris, Edwards, Spencer, Corker, Lees, Kirwan, Thorpe.

Rugby world reacts after farcical Champions League football dive

first_imgThursday Mar 7, 2019 Rugby world reacts after farcical Champions League football dive A number of rugby players, past and present, have taken to Twitter to discuss a farcical dive in football’s Champions League. The incident saw Roma’s Edin Džeko belatedly fall to the ground when the referee was near, after touching heads with an opposition player. ADVERTISEMENTIt was a flagrant act of cheating, with the aim of getting the other man sent off.In light of this, a number of players have derided him, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek retorts.https://twitter.com/FreddieBurns/status/1103595996406272001https://twitter.com/johnbarc86/status/1103595752230699008https://twitter.com/jimhamilton4/status/1103590352961843205https://twitter.com/martynewilliams/status/1103410993219153920I nearly drowned.

Thank Dzeko for showing me what a real injury looks like. #PrayForDzeko https://t.co/7dqjUzMQGm— Henry Fraser (@henryfraser0) March 7, 2019Rugby, of course, is not exempt from behaviour like this, but it is much less rife and has perhaps never seen something as deplorable as this.But with the danger of this actually becoming more common in rugby, some do not see the funny side in this as much.ADVERTISEMENThttps://twitter.com/brianmoore666/status/1103421597740863488https://twitter.com/NeilBack/status/1103419965095505921Even referee Nigel Owens had his say on the matter, saying behaviour like that is not acceptable in any sport.Rugby players and footballers often get compared to one another and how they conduct themselves on the pitch, and it is a debate that will rage on.

The premisse given by the clientes was to develop a project with the best cost and benefit relation. However, not giving up a construction with great quality with a contemporary architecture that, at the same time, does not deviate from the other existent houses from the condo, creating a cozy atmosphere. The clients are a young couple with three children. Another thing they asked was to create a house thinking about the children’s conviviality: wide rooms with generous spaces for the children to run and play and with the best view of all the social and external areas so they could keep na eye on them. In function of the requests, restrictions of the condo and limitations of the field with slope, we developed the project.Save this picture!© Adriano EscanhuelaSince the firsts studies, we thought about a L implantation, dividing in two distincts modules, uniting the edifications by the social areas. We located the vertex of the L at the superior right corner of the field and, with that, we could leave a generous space on the center and left side of the field, where we created the pool, sauna, changing room and the garden.Save this picture!Site PlanFor the edification, we opted for brickwork closure that did not need the use of plaster and painting, gerating significant savings in the construction phase and eliminating future repairs. But, for that, it was fundamental to utilize a high quality workmanship because the coatings chosen were external and internal finishing.Save this picture!© Adriano EscanhuelaTherefore we opted to use the apparent structural concrete block in the two-floor module that is destinated to the home theater and two guests suites at the ground floor and one master suite, two bedrooms for the children with a common bathroom and one support suite at the upper floor.Save this picture!© Adriano EscanhuelaAt the social module, only with a ground floor and one meter above the structural module, we used wood structure, demolition brick that we found by the region and tile roofing, creating a conection with the other houses of the condo. To give it a contemporary atmosphere, instead of using a convencional plasterboard lining, we chose to use OSB lining and apparent electrodes for electrical installations.Save this picture!© Adriano EscanhuelaThe social module contemplates: living room, dining room, kitchen, service area, bathroom and service room. The external barbecue area is almost integrated to the kitchen’s counter, only separated by big wood and glass frames. At the external area we created a place for hammocks with a beautiful tree beside the dining table where they can rest after the meals. In front of this area, is the pool with infinity edge and, next to it, the “wood box” that locates the sauna and changing room. We wanted that this “wood box” interfered the less possible on the view, so we buried it on the ground creating a softer and more harmonic volume on the field. That gave us the possibility to use it’s roof for contemplation at night, creating the right spot for the external fireplace, developed by us. As far as we know, the clients love this place, where they can spend the winter nights with the children, telling stories and watching the stars.Save this picture!© Adriano EscanhuelaProject gallerySee allShow lessOMA Unveils Urban Study and Strategy for Manifesta 12 in PalermoArchitecture NewsWhat Construction Can Learn from the Tech Industry’s Economies of ScaleArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/874844/kurumim-house-pm-arquitetura-plus-bruno-pimenta Clipboard CopyHouses•Brazil Photographs:  Adriano Escanhuela Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project center_img Area:  500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/874844/kurumim-house-pm-arquitetura-plus-bruno-pimenta Clipboard 2016 Brazil ArchDaily Houses “COPY” Photographs CopyAbout this officePM Arquitetura + Bruno PimentaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesItuBrazilPublished on July 03, 2017Cite: “Kurumim House / PM Arquitetura + Bruno Pimenta” [Residência Kurumim / PM Arquitetura + Bruno Pimenta] 03 Jul 2017.

Rajab was arrested on his return from a visit to Lebanon on 5 May and was placed in custody for an initial period of a week when he appeared in court yesterday.“By arresting Rajab again, the Bahraini authorities have given yet another example of how they shamefully flout fundamental freedoms without fear of reprisals by the international community,” Reporters Without Borders said,Rajab was brought before a Manama court yesterday on a charge of participating in an illegal meeting and urging others to take part in it. He was also questioned by prosecutors about a Tweet in which he allegedly insulted government officials. Charges were previously brought against Rajab in connection with his criticism of the authorities a year ago, when he was also the target of physical violence.As already reported, the Bahraini government used a spurious pretext to abruptly withdraw its permission for a visit by a delegation of free speech NGOs including Reporters Without Borders that had been scheduled to take place from 5 to 10 May.
