Enter Your Email Address The age at which we will receive our state pension seems to keep increasing. An ageing population and increasing life expectancies have lead to difficulties in funding the UK State Pension. As it is funded from current tax receipts, it relies on a plentiful and productive working population. When the ratio between the working population and the retired population widens, the financial burden grows.For most of the past 100 years, the retirement age for men was 65 and for women was 60. Over the past 25 years or so, several changes were made. In addition to increasing the State Pension age, the year in which it is due to start keeps getting brought forward.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…State Pension delaysCurrently, the retirement age for both men and women is due to be 68 by no later than 2046. With these trends continuing, I wouldn’t be surprised if those in their 20s and 30s eventually see a State Pension age of 75.That’s a long time to wait for retirement. I’m planning to retire at 55, long before I’m due to receive my State Pension. If you would rather retire early too, then I would consider investing in quality UK shares.I believe the following three steps can help build an investment pot that could fund your early retirement.Start as early as possibleHistory shows that the longer you invest for, the longer you have to compound your returns. Albert Einstein is reputed to have said, “compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world”. It’s true. Consider a 25-year-old investing £246 per month into a Stocks and Shares ISA, and achieving the long-term average return of 7% per year. By the age of 55, the investor would have built an investment pot of £300,000. Had the investor waited until the age of 35 to start investing, the total pot would have grown to £128,148 instead. So start investing early.Invest in a basket of quality UK sharesBy holding a diversified portfolio of stocks, you can limit risk. I would suggest a portfolio of around 15 to 20 stocks, but not just any stocks. Consider investing in good quality companies that you think will survive and still be thriving over the coming decades. Alternatively, there are several diversified funds and investment trusts that might be more suitable for a more hands-off approach. Although these funds are likely to already be reasonably diversified, I suggest holding several to limit management risk.Keep investing regularlySetting up a regular monthly direct debit into a Stocks and Shares ISA has several benefits. It allows you to stick to a plan and not spend the money elsewhere. It also helps you to undertake a process referred to as dollar cost averaging or pound cost averaging. As stock markets move up and down in cycles, investing a fixed amount every month will automatically purchase stocks in down-cycles and recessions. This will let you take advantage of buying at lower prices and offset any higher prices you may have paid during up markets. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares

I wrote about DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) shares earlier this month, highlighting that I’d buy the stock. I still would, especially now the company is in the limelight for one key reason.There are rumours that Mondi, the paper and packaging group, is considering a takeover of DS Smith. I think it’s worth taking another look at the stock.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…The potential takeoverI believe a Mondi takeover of DS Smith would make sense. Both companies offer similar services. And the quickest way to grow a company can be to buy similar businesses.This way not only is the firm growing its revenue, but there’s the potential to increase profitability by cutting duplicate costs. Otherwise known as improving revenue and cost synergies. With a Mondi takeover of DS Smith, I reckon this is exactly that.I should stress that a deal is, at present, only speculation. As yet, neither company has confirmed the rumours. But naturally, the possible transaction has led to DS Smith shares rising today. Talks around such a takeover could still be at a very early stage and there’s no guarantee they will lead to a transaction.Mondi, which released its full-year results today, has recently been acquiring companies. In January, it agreed to acquire a 90.38% stake in Olmuksan, a leading Turkish corrugated packaging player. I think this could be a sign of things to come. Mondi could be in the market to acquire rival businesses in order to grow. I guess only time will tell if a DS Smith’s takeover goes through.DS Smith’s businessI wouldn’t buy DS Smith shares purely on takeover speculation. Yet as a long-term investor, I think the company has some great qualities on its own.It has weathered the coronavirus crisis well due to its high exposure to two key areas: fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and e-commerce companies. FMCG companies typically sell their goods to supermarkets and through online channels. Throughout the pandemic, supermarkets have remained open and e-commerce businesses have been ultra-busy.Despite these tailwinds, the business has still been affected negatively by Covid-19. It manufactures corrugated thick-paper and falling European paper prices have hurt revenue. But the company has nonetheless decided to resume its income payments with a 4p interim dividend. To me, this is encouraging and I think that if the recovery continues, the company may be able to resume the full dividend too.The risksDS Smith is a cyclical business, which means that it’s dependent on how the wider economy is doing. This means that if the economy is suffering, DS Smith shares are likely to suffer.There’s no guarantee on the dividend. If conditions turn bad again, management could decide to suspend the dividend. DS Smith is dependent on paper prices too. If lockdowns persist, there could be a fall in paper prices, which could impact revenue.Growth driversEven without any Mondi takeover, what I really like about DS Smith shares are the long-term growth drivers. I think the shift to online shopping, not to mention sustainable packaging, should help it. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12, it remains reasonably priced, even after its latest rise.I believe the company is in a good position to capitalise these trends. Hence I’d buy DS Smith shares in my diversified portfolio regardless of takeover speculation.

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. The New York Stock Exchange has been busy recently. On March 10, online gaming platform Roblox (NYSE: RBLX) went public. The very next day, South Korea’s second-largest online retailer, Coupang (NYSE: CPNG), followed suit. Both were eagerly anticipated. Roblox shares jumped by 50% on their first day, while Coupang wasn’t far behind with a 40% increase. However, do I think they make good investments and will I buy?Roblox shares: a great long-term investment?Roblox is a gaming platform that allows users to both play and create games within an expansive virtual universe. Players are able (and encouraged) to make in-game purchases with the virtual currency ‘Robux’. With over half of under-16s in the US having used the platform, this is a great avenue for revenue.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…Since listing on the NYSE, Roblox shares have looked like an exciting investment opportunity. The company expects an explosive Q1, pushed forward by 60% growth in active players and a doubling of revenue in comparison to last year. For 2021 as a whole, its expectations are a little more restrained. But roughly $1.4bn in revenue still represents growth of around 50% year-on-year. Impressive.I’m also confident that Roblox shares would not be harmed by any negative pandemic developments. In fact, they could actually benefit if children are stuck at home once more (something we all hope doesn’t happen). The more likely scenario is that the world starts returning to normal in the coming months.But this creates the very real risk that player numbers could start to decline to pre-pandemic levels.Another risk is that Roblox shares are potentially overvalued. My colleague Edward Sheldon certainly thinks that its jump from a $4bn valuation last year to around $40bn poses a risk. This isn’t helped by the difference between its market cap and revenue resulting in a high P/S ratio of 27.And don’t forget, all it takes is one viral gaming sensation to drive users away from the platform. Remember Fortnite?Coupang: advantages and disadvantages The performance of Coupang when it joined the NYSE was encouraging. The company is seen by many as the ‘Amazon of South Korea’, so demand was understandably high.This interest comes on the back of a wonderful year for the relatively new company. Its revenue doubled in comparison to the previous year, reaching an impressive $12bn. It also managed to increase its market share from 18% to 25%.However, both of these positives come with caveats. Its market share might be increasing, but strong competition makes innovation a must if it wants to avoid being smothered by the likes of Gmarket and WeMakePrice.It also isn’t profitable. Despite its $12bn revenue last year, it actually ended up with losses of almost $500m. This is an improvement on the year before, but doesn’t guarantee that the company will become profitable any time soon.This lack of profitability and the risk its competitors pose means I’ll probably hang back from Coupang for a while.I’m willing to overlook the risk of overvaluation in regard to Roblox shares, though. Once the dust has settled over the next few days, I’ll probably be making an investment that I’ll maintain for the long term.

We encountered a degraded agricultural site, which takes its value primarily by the distant view to the mountains and vineyards. So we wanted to create a new landscape concept and give new values to the immediate areas within the site, through the architecture and its interaction with the site. Save this picture!© Cristóbal PalmaFor achieving this we apply a simple strategy that we called “finger Joint” . JOINT: The point at which two parts join into an artificial structure. Architecture (artificial) + Field (artificial site, degraded agricultural land). This results in the arrangement of interlocking volumes (finger joint) with the terrain, shaping a new landscape. The “Landscaping” becomes active or functional, as these green voids in between the volumes provide ventilation and cools down the indoor temperature. Save this picture!© Cristóbal PalmaAlso, these voids are covered with vegetation that protects the wood from the strongest sun exposure from the north avoiding premature aging. The voids as yards have a functional role for the house too. The major views from the inside were direct o to the surrounding hills and vineyards.

City Giving Day 2019 was a great chance to spread the word about this amazing work, as so many businesses look to extend their philanthropic work and corporate social responsibility.Activities throughout the day included a quiz, treasure hunt, and a fundraising static bike competition. The Lord Mayor took part in Tour de Canary Wharf and Tour de City, pedalling for charity. Organisations took part with a range of activities, including hosting bake sales, a rickshaw challenge, coffee mornings, and visiting local charities.Jonathan Bewes, Vice Chairman, Corporate & Institutional Banking at Standard Chartered Bank, said: Advertisement “City Giving Day is a great mobilising day to recognise the contribution the City makes within our communities. This City Giving Day, Standard Chartered celebrated the launch of our Futuremakers programme, Goal, which aims to unleash the economic potential of girls in underserved communities.”Among the other firms taking part, Arthur Financials organised a bake off, had a sponsored haircutting session, and supported young people with employability skills.MacFarlanes LLP saw 13 teams go head to head in their annual static triathlon today, raising over £4000 for their Charity of the Year, The Royal Marsden, and bringing the total for their partnership to over £125,000.Addleshaw Goddard welcomed the Lord Mayor to their office for Afternoon Tea where they were able to showcase the CSR work taking place across the firm, while over 70 employees at KMPG collectively rowed 1,000km to raise money for NSPCC.The Lord Mayor’s Appeal’s three chosen charities, which will be supported through City Giving Day, are Place2Be, OnSide Youth Zones and Samaritans.Place2Be will use the funds to provide children in 180 schools across London with access to mental health and emotional support, tackling the 75% of mental health issues that start in childhood.OnSide Youth Zones is creating five state-of-the-art centres in areas of deprivation, providing access to a safe space and programme of activities ranging from sport and music to mentoring, transforming lives in communities for those that need it most. They have already opened centres in Barking & Dagenham and Barnet.Samaritans’ new initiative Wellbeing in the City will use the funds raised for its online platform, giving employees skills to manage wellbeing in the workplace.

The more ceremonies mean smaller sizes of graduates in each ceremony.The bigger the class sizes are, the more people will be attending graduation. Boschini said if a large number of students are in one ceremony, the stadium might not have enough room for everyone the students want to invite.“I would hate to have to sell tickets to graduation,” Boschini said. “But the stadium only fits so many people, and we don’t want to limit the number of people each student can bring.”Whether or not the graduates appreciate the smaller graduation ceremonies, Chancellor Boschini will be waiting on stage to congratulate each person on their hard work and on their graduation.

The sentencing of a journalist to one year in prison without possibility of parole (he will serve eight months), the arbitrary closing down of a newspaper, the financial ruin of another newspaper, orchestrated by the authorities, etc. – all practices which explain Morocco’s fall in the Index rankings.Tunisia’s score was (-10), falling in position from 154th to 164rd (Tunisia had already lost 9 places between 2008 and 2009). The country is continuing to drop into the Index’s lower rankings because of its policy of systematic repression enforced by government leaders in Tunis against any person who expresses an idea contrary to that of the regime. The passage of the Amendment to Article 61B of the Penal Code is especially troubling in that it tends to criminalise any contact with foreign organisations which might ultimately harm Tunisia’s economic interests.There is an identical situation in Syria (-8) and Yemen (-3), where press freedom is fast shrinking away. Arbitrary detentions are still routine, as is the use of torture.For its part, Iran held its position at the bottom of the Index. The crackdown on journalists and netizens which occurred just after the disputed re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in June 2009 only strengthened in 2010.Only a relative improvement in some countriesAt first glance, the 2010 index’s higher score as compared to that of 2009 seems to translate into gains. However, it is important to emphasise how troubling the situation had been in 2009. In that regard, 2010 actually spells out a return to the pre-existing equilibrium, with no sign of significant progress in these countries.Such is the case of Israel (extra-territorial) which “won” 18 places in the index, passing from the 150th to the 132nd place. The year 2010 was not exempt from press freedom violations on the part of the Israeli Army, as evidenced by the cases of foreign journalists arrested on the flotilla in May 2010, or the Palestinian journalists who are regularly targeted by Tsahal soldiers’ bullets. Or the skirmish in South Lebanon last August, during which a Lebanese journalist was killed. However, 2010 is incommensurate with 2009, in the early days of which “Operation Cast Lead” took place: six journalists died, two of them while doing their jobs, and at least three buildings sheltering media professionals were targeted by gunfire.The Palestinian Territories had similar results, rising 11 places in the 2010 index (now 150th instead of 161st). The violations committed in the year just ended are simply “less serious” than in 2009, even if the journalists and media professionals are still paying the price for the open hostility between the Hamas and the Fatah. In Algeria, the number of legal proceedings instituted against journalists has noticeably declined, which explains its gain of 8 places in the Index. Between 2008 and 2009, the country had dropped 20 places due to the increased number of legal proceedings. Drops in Persian GulfBahraini’s ranking in the Index dropped from 119th to 144th place, which can be explained by the growing number of imprisonments and trials, notably against bloggers and netizens.Another noteworthy drop was that of Kuwait, which fell 27 places, from the 60th to the 87th position, mainly because of the Kuwaiti authorities’ harsh treatment of lawyer and blogger Mohammed Abdel Qader Al-Jassem, who has been jailed twice following accusations lodged by prominent figures with close ties to the regime. This contradicts the authorities stated desire to project an image of being the leading democracy of the Persian Gulf. October 20, 2010 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Confirmed downward trends Organisation Iraq climbed 15 places (now 130th), because safety conditions for journalists improved substantially in the country, despite the fact that three had died between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 – two of whom were murdered. Since then, three deaths have occurred in less than one month. The withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq at the end of August necessarily marks the start of a new era. The security of citizens, and particularly of journalists, should not be made to suffer for it. Help by sharing this information
