Hays finance director Paul Venables said: “I think in the [UK] public sector and in our business I would expect to see the next two years to be bumbling along the bottom, so we don’t expect to see growth.”He said that public sector authorities have not been replacing people and candidate confidence has been so low that people have not been moving jobs.“Overall we are about 50 per cent down [from peak levels], but if you look outside of the frontline services of education and healthcare we are about 65 per cent down.”Hays said the combined impact of the natural disasters in Australia, New Zealand and Japan was estimated to have reduced group net fee growth by one per cent this quarter.

Image source: Getty Images Finding income investments is particularly difficult right now. Many FTSE 100 companies have slashed their distributions to investors over the past 12 months. Other UK shares have followed suit to preserve their cash resources in the pandemic. However, a handful of companies have stood by their distributions. While these payouts aren’t guaranteed, I’d consider these stocks when looking for income investments. 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…FTSE 100 incomeInsurance group Admiral (LSE: ADM) is one of my favourite blue-chip income stocks. The company has a consistent track record of returning cash to investors. While there’s no guarantee the business will continue to return excess profits to shareholders, I think its business model can support its distributions. Admiral is one of the largest car insurance companies in the UK. It’s also highly profitable. For the past six years, the company has reported an average operating profit margin of 37%. Unfortunately, insurance can be an unpredictable business. So, the group’s profit margin may not remain at this level indefinitely. That means the business’s dividend could come under pressure. Still, I believe the company’s size gives it some protection against uncertainty in the insurance market. Therefore, I’m confident in the group’s dividend ability. City analysts have pencilled in a dividend yield of nearly 6% for 2021. Even though this is only a rough estimate, and may turn out to be too optimistic, I believe it shows the FTSE 100’s firm’s dividend potential. UK shares for incomeOf the 100 shares that make up the lead index, only 18% support dividend yields of 5% or more. These projections are based on City analyst estimates so they’re by no means guaranteed. Nevertheless, I think the forecasts are a great way of weeding out the best UK shares for income. One of the FTSE 100 companies projected to offer a dividend yield of nearly 6% in 2021 is mining group BHP (LSE: BHP). This company is one of the largest mining conglomerates in the world. I think this comes with both benefits and drawbacks. For a start, commodity prices can be highly volatile. That means the corporation’s profits can jump around from year to year.On the other hand, the biggest companies in particular sectors tend to have economies of scale, which means they can operate with lower production costs than smaller peers. That may translate into higher profit margins. BHP could also benefit this year from rising commodity prices. One of the company’s main product lines is iron ore. It aimed to produce 276m-286m tonnes of the stuff in 2020. Towards the end of the year, the commodity, a vital ingredient in steel production, reached a multi-year high off the back of China’s strong demand. I believe this should help support BHP’s bottom line and dividend. Although, as noted above, commodity prices can be volatile. There’s no guarantee the mining group will continue to generate large profits throughout 2021. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

On a tree-lined street in Marly-le-Roi a small community very close to Paris where high fences traditionally isolate each house and its garden, there is a house which reaches out to its neighbors creating a feeling of urbanity previously lacking on these parts. Because urban policy does not allow one house to open up to another to achieve the openness effect, this house is moved forward its parcel to open widely onto the street. A perforated galvanized-steel fence allows the passers-by to look in at the garden, which actually runs under the house that seems to levitate on its plot. It is also an invitation to enter: the access is made from this underground level beneath the actual house, where the firewood is stored and the car parked. Save this picture!© Schnepp RenouThe layout of the ground floor is characterized by the fluidity of its three spaces, which are organized around the central fireplace, which alone endures the entire heating of this passive house. The kitchen and an intimate living room are located on either side of the carved staircase of a single piece of prefabricated steel, while two steps higher a living room crossing opens onto a vast terrace with a cantilever onto the street. This house blurs the boundaries between private and public to the benefit of user-friendly rooms that also open onto the outside.Save this picture!© Schnepp RenouSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Schnepp RenouThe privacy of the inhabitants is maintained in the upper level rooms by high windows, which direct the view skywards. Throughout the house raw materials (steel and concrete) are left exposed creating a sense of authenticity for this 145 m2 solid wood CLT prefabricated house. Everything is a pretext to awaken the curiosity of the passers-by, the pre-grayed larch cladding that envelops the whole thing right up to the rafts, thanks to the absence of covers, to the fold of the main facade – which opens a perspective towards the garden . The house really does seem to have achieved the lofty dream it was targeting with such clarity.Save this picture!© Schnepp RenouSave this picture!© Schnepp RenouProject gallerySee allShow lessTotal Space: Considering Dutch Structuralism TodayArticlesWeWork Weihai Lu / LinehouseSelected Projects Share 2015 Architects: L’agence KARAWITZ Area Area of this architecture project Area: 145 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805456/the-marly-house-lagence-karawitz Clipboard Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805456/the-marly-house-lagence-karawitz Clipboard The Marly House / L’agence KARAWITZSave this projectSaveThe Marly House / L’agence KARAWITZ Houses Save this picture!© Schnepp Renou+ 31 Share Year: CopyHouses•France CopyAbout this officeL’agence KARAWITZOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFrancePublished on February 17, 2017Cite: “The Marly House / L’agence KARAWITZ” 17 Feb 2017.

It will make supporting our research possible in the swipe of a finger as part of millions of transactions – something that’s completely new. While the individual amounts might not seem like much, many small donations could add up to big breakthroughs in finding new treatments for conditions including heart disease, stroke and vascular dementia.

Sir Richard Branson commented: Advertisement
Logan was an Alaskan husky blinded when someone doused him with acid. The dog died a few months later. Logan’s Law is a package of four bills in the Michigan Legislature, with most of the language written to prevent animal abuse. Who could be against that?The controversy that has erupted on social media involves the one bill addressing the crime of bestiality. Rather than write new language that makes the crime animal-specific, the bill left intact words from the state’s 1931 so-called anti-sodomy law. Thus, “a person who commits the abominable and detestable crime against nature either with mankind or with any animal shall be guilty of a felony,” and still subject to up to 15 years in prison. A person already “sexually delinquent” could be jailed for life. It would have been ever so simple to delete the words “either with mankind or,” effectively striking down a law that is already unconstitutional and therefore unenforceable. In 2004, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in Lawrence v. Texas, to overturn the despicable 1984 Hardwick decision that upheld Georgia’s law against anal sex. The high court ruled unconstitutional all state laws that prohibited private sexual acts between consenting adults — laws that were mainly used to punish same-sex relationships. Michigan was then one of 17 states that still had these laws targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people on the books; only five states, none of them Michigan, have eliminated theirs. Why not make state law consistent with the U.S. Constitution and affirm the rights of all people to privacy in their sexual affairs — and not do so in the context of protecting defenseless animals? Republican Sen. Rick Jones, a sponsor, gave his excuse: “The minute I cross that line and I start talking about the other stuff” — dropping the unconstitutional language — “I won’t even get a hearing. … Nobody wants to touch it.” Jones is saying essentially that he was powerless to change the wording because the Michigan Legislature is so bigoted it won’t “touch” the issue of taking anti-LGBTQ laws off the books. Jones himself, however, has voted for every one of a slew of anti-LGBTQ, anti-reproductive rights and anti-labor bills introduced since the now notorious Gov. Rick Snyder took office in 2011. In June of 2015, Jones voted to allow “faith-based” adoption agencies to refuse to serve potential parents — i.e. same-sex couples — under the guise of religious freedom.Any one of the legislators could have voted no, demanding a new Logan’s Law without irrelevant language that reinforces hatred of the LGBTQ community. Yet the Democrats, who take LGBTQ votes for granted, voted with the Republicans. Thus, with a nearly unanimous bipartisan vote, Michigan legislators have again demonstrated their bigotry — or, at best, sheer cowardice in the face of bigotry. Meanwhile, thousands of pets are dead or in terrible pain and suffering after drinking Flint’s toxic water — but those poor animals don’t seem to be a priority in Lansing.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
