Royston Wild | Friday, 18th December, 2020 | More on: POLY PSN SHED These top dividend stocks all trade on rock-bottom earnings multiples. I think they are brilliant buys that I’m considering for 2021 and beyond:#1: The golden gooseI think it’s always a good idea to own one or more gold-producing UK shares. Economic, social, and political crises can happen in a heartbeat, as the Covid-19 crisis has shown. And having exposure to the safe-haven metal can help save your bacon. It can also allow you to make massive returns.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…Gold prices have rocketed 21% since the beginning of 2020. And gold-digging stocks like Polymetal International (LSE: POLY) have soared in price as a consequence. I prefer the idea of buying gold-producing UK shares to buying the metal itself or a gold-backed ETF. This way I can capitalise on a rising gold price and receive dividends.Polymetal’s a particularly great buy on the dividend front. It carries an 8% yield for 2021. The FTSE 100 share’s also expected to enjoy a 20% annual earnings increase next year, leaving it trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8 times. Gold prices have retraced sharply in recent months. But I think huge macroeconomic uncertainty and ultra-loose central bank monetary policy could sweep them higher again soon.#2: A UK share to build fortunes withMany UK share investors will know the terrific investing opportunities that come from Britain’s severe housing crisis. It’s a problem that’s supercharged demand for newbuild homes and delivered exceptional shareholder returns from the housebuilders during the 2010s.After a challenging, Covid-19-hit 2020, City analysts expect these construction firms to get back to generating vast profits straight away. Take FTSE 100 builder Persimmon for example. City analysts expect annual earnings here to rebound 10% in 2021. And this means that dividends look set to soar again too.This leaves Persimmon carrying a monster 10% dividend yield for next year. Combined with its low P/E ratio of 10 makes this UK share too good to miss for this value investor.#3: Logistics leviathanPersimmon’s earnings projections are decent. But Urban Logistics REIT (LSE: SHED) looks on course to post stratospheric bottom-line growth for the next fiscal year. The number crunchers are expecting a 34% rise in annual earnings for the 12 months to March 2022. I reckon this is a taste of what UK share investors can expect throughout this new decade.The e-commerce explosion of recent years has accelerated following the Covid-19 outbreak. It’s a phenomenon that should fuel profits and growth for Urban Logistics for many years into the future. It owns and operates warehousing and logistics facilities the length and breadth of the country.And the FTSE 250 business is busily expanding to make the most of this opportunity. Last week it announced the £22.9m purchase of three logistics facilities in the Midlands and the South-East. Right now Urban Logistics trades on price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.6. It carries an enormous 6.5% corresponding dividend yield, too. This all represents unmissable value in my book.

Opinion/AnalysisHer appointment as a House Impeachment Manager increases her profile on the national stage at the beginning of the election cycleBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceI try to steer clear of national politics, at least as it relates to The Apopka Voice. You will not see any crazy editorials in this publication speculating on President Obama’s citizenship or if President Trump is the worst leader ever or a gift from God.I leave national politics to The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Politico.The Apopka Voice has always focused on local news, government, and politics. Names like Bankson, Becker, Kilsheimer, Land, and Nelson are far more important to us than Clinton, McConnell, Obama, Pelosi, or Trump.However, Congresswoman Val Demings is the occasional exception to that rule.Demings represents Florida’s 10th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Florida-10 encompasses all of Apopka. She is also well-known by local leaders and has occasional town hall meetings in Apopka. I feel an obligation to cover Demings on behalf of The Apopka Voice readers and have published several of her news releases when they relate to Apopka, or Orange County. If the releases or statements are more political, or focused on national issues, I usually pass on publishing them, but when local news and national news occasionally merge, I feel obligated to report on it, and sometimes, though rarely, weigh-in.Such was the case last weekend (January 4th), when I received this news release from Demings:Rep. Demings Comments on Iran StrikeORLANDO, FL – Today Rep. Val Demings (FL-10), a member of the Homeland Security and Intelligence Committees, issued the following statement on the president’s decision to kill Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani and to deploy additional U.S. service personnel to the Middle East.Said Rep. Demings, “During the impeachment debate I said that habitual offenders never sneak up on you. They telegraph their intentions time and time again. I have to wonder about President Trump’s previous tweet that ‘in order to get re-elected, President Obama will start a war with Iran.’ Habitual offenders telegraph their intentions.“This reckless and destabilizing strike puts Americans and our allies at risk. While I share former Vice President Biden’s belief that no Americans will mourn Soleimani’s passing, America needs real answers and verifiable justifications before we deploy our sons and daughters.“The first and most important question is ‘why now?’ What was the so-called ‘imminent threat’ that led us to strike in the first place? Recent reporting and the State Department’s struggle to justify the strike raise serious questions about whether this was a national security decision or a political one. Did we confer with our allies in the region? What is the Administration’s overall strategic plan since deliberately undermining the Iran Nuclear Deal? Someone once said, ‘our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us.’ I pray neither is true.”*****Take what you will from the statement, I know Demings has both supporters and detractors reading The Apopka Voice, but what caught my eye the most was her reference to former vice president and current presidential candidate Joe Biden. Typically, Demings will only quote co-authors of bills she is sponsoring in these news releases, so why reference a person who is not a colleague in Congress, and is also out of office?It got me thinking about the reasoning… and the theory I came away with was that she is probably going to endorse Biden in his presidential campaign sometime before the Florida Presidential Preference Primary on March 17th, and this may have been a subtle action to begin the process.I sent an email to Daniel Gleick, Demings’ press contact in Washington DC, who I have communicated with through email many times in the last three years, and asked him about the Biden quote:“I’m guessing this is a little premature but is Rep. Demings going to endorse Joe Biden sometime before the Florida Primary? I noticed she referenced his quote in her release. If she does, please send that endorsement to me, and I will publish it on The Apopka Voice.“Gleick quickly responded:“Hi, Reggie. You can direct any election questions to Wendy Anderson.”Hmmm…Two things… First, I didn’t really consider this an election question. I was simply trying to chase down a hunch that a moderate Democrat from a battleground state with a presidential preference primary coming up soon might endorse a moderate Democrat candidate like Biden. It didn’t feel earth-shattering, nor did it feel like a question that needed to be handled by her political shop.Second, Anderson is her chief of staff. Again, this question was not one I expected to land that far up the ladder. Was there more to this connection between Biden and Demings than just an endorsement?I sent Anderson this email; essentially the same question as I asked Gleick, but with an added theory tacked on to the end.“I’m guessing this is a little premature but is Rep. Demings going to endorse Joe Biden sometime before the Florida Primary? I’m also curious if there has been any discussion between Rep. Demings and VP Biden or their offices or campaign teams about her being on a shortlist as a possible running mate?”A few days later, she responded with a brief statement from Demings.“Statement from Representative Demings- ‘I am not prepared to make any statement about the 2020 presidential race at this time.’ -Wendy D. Anderson”I’m not a political operative or the chief of staff to a congresswoman, but if I were that’s exactly the sort of answer I would provide to a reporter far away from the national spotlight asking a question about issues she had no incentive to answer… just yet. It’s also the sort of non-answer I would expect from a person who is being considered for a role in a campaign, and while her non-answer proves nothing, it does illustrate that Demings did not deny the notion out of hand.I also emailed the Biden campaign three days ago but did not receive a response from them as of yet.Despite it being somewhat of a longshot in nature, if a politician with ties to Apopka has a shot at being the nominee for vice president, it’s worth a little local speculation, so I dug a little deeper into the rabbit hole.*****It turns out that it’s not without prior speculation (and precedent) on a national level that Demings’ name has surfaced, even as a possible presidential candidate, and there has also been a phone call between Biden and Demings that was reported on less than a year ago.In a January 2017 article written by Chris Cilizza of The Washington Post in his blog “The Fix”, he ranked Demings as the 10th most likely female to run for president.He wrote this about her prospects:“You’ve probably never heard of Demings. So, how does she make (my) list? She’s the former Orlando police chief and now a freshman member of Congress. She’s also an African American woman. Demings is impressive, and you can bet Democrats will look for every opportunity to push her into the national spotlight.”Amy Davidson of The New Yorker also compiled a list of 13 women who should run for president in December of 2016. Demings was ranked #9.Davidson wrote this about her before she was even sworn in as a Congresswoman:“Val Demings – U.S. representative-elect from Florida. ‘I carry a 9-mm. gun in my Dooney & Bourke that was a gift when I retired from the police department,’ Demings told Marie Claire, in 2012, when she first ran for Congress. Demings, who had been the first female police chief of Orlando, didn’t win that time, but she was back in 2016. An African-American, she overcame the poverty and the segregation of her childhood in Florida (a swing state, if anyone needed to be reminded). In every respect, she is a determined fighter and a compelling presence. Also, Demings’s husband would be the first former sheriff to serve as the First Spouse.”More recently there was a phone call between Biden to Demings in which he alerted her to his intention to run for president. Politico first wrote about it in May of 2019 in an article entitled“A dream ticket: Black lawmakers pitch Biden-Harris to beat Trump.”Inside the article, Demings commented on a call she received from former VP Biden:As vice president, Biden was frequently in touch with Congressional Black Caucus leaders and would host an annual dinner with the entire caucus at his house in observance of Black History Month. Biden has also taken steps to cultivate relationships with younger black lawmakers who came to Congress since (President)Trump has been in the White House, reaching out to them via phone calls and requesting in-person meetings.“He called me before he made his announcement to fill me in. And I was honored that he would call me to let me know,” said Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.), who has yet to endorse a candidate.*****Okay, I get it. There isn’t a lot of evidence here, and the fact that Demings might endorse Biden certainly does not prove she may be on a shortlist of VP candidates, but considering he allegedly reached out to former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and is apparently courting California Senator Kamala Harris, Demings might fit the bill of a strong African American woman with a law enforcement history, who is from arguably the most important battleground state there is – Florida. And although her time in congress is short, she more than makes up for that with her life story. Here is just a sample of Demings’ bio from her congressional website:“Rep. Demings is a lifelong public servant who broke numerous glass ceilings in her rise through the Orlando Police Department and her election to Congress. Val shared a two-room home in Jacksonville with her six older siblings. Val got her first job at age 14. She worked, saved, and with the sacrifice and hard work of her parents became the first in her family to graduate from college. With her parents proudly at her side, she received a B.S. in Criminology from Florida State University, then went on to receive a Master’s in Public Administration. During her distinguished 27-year career with the Orlando Police Department (OPD), she served in virtually every department. In 2007, Val Demings made history when she was appointed to serve as Orlando’s first female Chief of Police.”*****That’s what I wrote earlier this week, and then on Wednesday Demings was appointed to be one of only seven representatives to manage the impeachment hearings, therefore propelling her into the national spotlight in the height of the election season. What seemed like a theoretical longshot, now seems a bit more plausible.But is that enough to launch Demings into running mate status with less than four years experience in Congress?It would be a surprising choice, but she does have a compelling story that would certainly play well in a heightened three-month sprint to election day that vice presidential candidates experience to introduce themselves to the electorate.So, will Demings endorse Biden? Will Biden win the nomination? Will he put Demings on the VP shortlist? Will he choose her as his running mate? Will Demings be the next Vice President of the United States?Only time will tell.A lot of bank shots would have to fall for this theory to take shape. But as we all know, stranger things have happened in politics, both nationally and certainly in Apopka.

T4 HOUSE is a house located in the same massively constructed villas with the typical design. But to the landlord it’s a “timeline” with many ups and downs after more than a decade living there. When they moved to a new house, instead of selling this house, they decided to renovate it for rent. This was a way to help this house both have people living and be operated to keep it from degrading, but to them (the landlord) it’s kept as a memory.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienThe old house had the status quo that was very stuffy, dank, lacked of light and degraded severely in layout. We decided to renovate the space in the most radical way. We changed the access hall of the house to the right place before which was a small bedroom, and the old hall was closed to a daybed, this old bedroom roof is cut and perforated for extra light. Trees and lawns were added so that nature could come into the house. In this way, the first floor was completely transformed to create a depth of space.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Trieu ChienAfter finishing, the entire space looked like to be changed spectacularly, the spaces of the inside – outside, the top and bottom were mixed together. Of course, many small details have been adjusted such as lighting, ventilation for stairs, additional more spaces to access nature, more daybeds to read books. But finally the house is more comfortable but still has to retain its inherent soul.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienProject gallerySee allShow lessOffice Building Podkriznik – “Propulsion” / SuperformSelected ProjectsNamwon Pavilion – SanSan / Boundaries ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year: CopyHouses•Phú Thượng, Vietnam Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/870479/t4-house-landmak-architecture Clipboard Vietnam ArchDaily “COPY” Photographs T4 House / Landmak ArchitectureSave this projectSaveT4 House / Landmak Architecture “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLandmak ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPhú ThượngVietnamPublished on May 13, 2017Cite: “T4 House / Landmak Architecture” 12 May 2017.

Facebook Garrett Podell Facebook ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history + posts World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ TCU Head Baseball Coach Jim Schlossnagle and TCU Baseball Player Luken Baker attended Drew Medford’s vigil at Paschal High School Thursday night Twitter Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ printBoth of the school communities on Berry Street, TCU and Paschal High School, came together Thursday night to celebrate the life of a 2016 Paschal graduate and incoming TCU baseball player.Drew Medford died in a one-vehicle crash on the Chisholm Trail Parkway early on Thursday. The wreck occurred around 2:30, near the Interstate 20 exit, according to a statement from Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Highway Patrol Staff Lieutenant Lonny Haschel.Medford, who was set to pitch at TCU next season, was the MVP of District 4-6A, Paschal baseball head coach Darrell Preston said.However, Medford was more than just an athlete, as friends, family, Horned Frogs and Panthers alike remembered Medford in a vigil on the Paschal practice football field around 5 p.m.“He had one of the biggest hearts in the world,” Zach Shaw, one of Medford’s close friends from high school, said. “Drew Medford was the one of the most genuine, most kind, and caring people I have ever had the pleasure of encountering.”Medford was known for his ability to make people smile. “He just made everybody laugh and was such a great guy to be around,” said Lauren Callaghan, an incoming TCU freshman.Almost the entire practice football field was full, as it was nearly impossible to see the grass with so many people coming to pay their respects.“This is amazing,” Preston said. “I look out here and all I see is nothing but love for Drew Medford, and I think its fitting that it’s raining, just like all the tears that are falling right now because he was such an unbelievable person.”Despite the downpour, the entire crowd stayed throughout the entirety of the vigil. Medford’s friends and family displayed the traits he was most known for: his spirit.“Drew Medford taught us something: how not to quit,” Preston said. “Drew Medford won, I see it looking at all of our faces, and he’s looking down at us today and always will be.”Paschal head football coach and assistant baseball coach Matt Miracle also praised Medford for his never-give-up attitude.“We have a strong community here at Paschal, and we don’t stay down, we get back up and keep pushing forward,” Matt Miracle said. “We all know that’s what Drew would want us to do.”Many TCU athletes attended Medford’s vigil, including TCU head baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle and TCU baseball players Luken Baker, Brian Howard and Michael Landestoy, among others.Schlossnagle issued a statement on Medford’s passing Thursday morning.“Our program lost another teammate this morning in Drew Medford,” Schlossnagle said. “We ask that you please keep the Medford family in your thoughts and prayers.”Some TCU volleyball players were also in attendance, as well as TCU basketball player Karviar Shepherd.Paschal and TCU students and alums alike all agreed that Drew Medford made an impact on their lives.“This right here, all of these people, just goes to show the impact that he made,” Shaw said. “Each and every one of you knew him, and he grew on all of us every day.”Paschal principal Terri Mossige summarized a theme of Medford’s vigil: unity. “Never ever underestimate the spirit of a community,” Mossige said. “We stand together.”It’s undeniable that Medford had an ability that only a select few in the world of sports possess — the ability to bring people together.“He was more than just an athlete, he brought all of us closer,” Shaw said. “There’s not enough to say about him.” Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

+ posts Twitter Matheson will be giving her talk at 4 p.m. and she hopes people will walk away with a further understanding of sexual assault cases and a willingness to work toward changing the conversation around them.“People can expect to learn more about Molly Jane and I think they will walk away feeling like they have a small glimpse of the incredible person she was and maybe wish they would have had the chance to know her,” Matheson said. Matheson also said attendees will leave the symposium with a clear understanding of how to grow from horrific events. Wellman reiterates Matheson’s statement that she hopes people walk away from the symposium with a better understanding of crime’s impact on the survivors, victims and families.“The reality is, especially when as a society we’re so fascinated with crime, we forget that there’s another side of the coin,” Wellman said. “So frequently, we want to know about the criminal and about the crime and what happened, but we forget there’s a whole other side to the criminal justice program that is actually looking to see how we respond to and help those who have been affected by crime.”The symposium will be held on Nov. 6 in the Kelly Center.

The event will start with prevention measures and move into response for victims. Flyer provided by Dr. Ashley WellmanThe Pain Into Purpose symposium will cover what prevention measures are put in place to prevent sexual assault, abuse and trafficking.On the response side, the event will discuss how organizations respond to victims after crimes are committed and what can result from these events.Dr. Ashley Wellman, an instructor of criminal justice, said the purpose of this symposium is to give people the chance to look into these situations and the people who handle them.“We wanted to have an opportunity for the community and for our students to interact with practitioners and advocates in the field who are making a difference and trying not only to prevent and respond to trauma but to show people a way that you can thrive after trauma,” Wellman said. One of the speakers is Tracy Matheson, the founder of Project Beloved, an organization that provides response initiatives to survivors of sexual assault. Matheson founded the organization in 2017, a year after her daughter Molly Jane was raped and murdered in her apartment in Fort Worth.Its two major response initiatives are Beloved Bundles and soft interview rooms. Beloved Bundles are kits that provide sexual assault victims with clothing, hygiene products and other necessities needed after a forensic exam because most of a victim’s belongings are taken as evidence. Soft interview rooms are created to help victims feel “emotionally safe” and more comfortable during the interview process.“We can be a safe place should someone decide to share their story, we can support them in the way they need to be supported,” Matheson said. 3rd Soft Interview Room installed at Bedford PD.
