It’s been proven down the years that you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to make a fortune with UK shares. The long-term investor makes an average annual return of somewhere between 8% and 10%. That means individuals who can invest a decent sum of money regularly can make delicious, life-changing returns.Even investing just £300 a month can set you up for a very handsome retirement. Someone who spends this on UK shares can, over the space of 30 years, realistically expect to have made up to £619,000 for their retirement pot. This is why I invest in my Stocks and Shares ISA at every opportunity.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…3 top stocks on my ISA watchlistNow let me talk you through several cheap UK shares I’m thinking of adding to my ISA today:Plenty of housebuilders are trading on cheap price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios right now as investors fear a prolonged economic downturn in the UK. And I think that Springfield Properties’ low reading of 8 times for 2020 more than bakes in the possibility of a big hit to the housing market. In reality though, I don’t think investors need be too concerned over a sudden worsening in trading conditions. Low interest rates and huge government support for buyers look set to prohibit any chances of a collapse in the medium term. Meanwhile, a shocking lack of new and existing properties entering the market will keep demand for Springfield’s newbuilds on an upward slant too.Gamesys Group also looks too cheap to miss right now. I don’t believe a forward P/E ratio of 10 times reflects the rate at which the online gambling sector is set to grow. According to Grand View Research, compound annual growth for this market will be at 11.5% through to 2027. And popular brands such as Jackpotjoy and Virgin Games will allow Gamesys to exploit this trend to the fullest.Premier Foods is another terrific buy for value investors today. This UK share trades on a P/E ratio just below the bargain-basement threshold of 10 times. It’s a reading that fails to factor in the food producer’s exceptional defensive qualities that make it a great buy for these economically-troubled times. This low rating also doesn’t take into account its packed stable of beloved products such as Mr Kipling cakes and Bisto gravy, brands that should drive profits long into the future.Discover more dirt-cheap UK shares with the FoolThese are just a few of the top-class UK shares that are changing hands too cheaply right now. The stock market crash of early 2020 leaves plenty of companies trading on attractive multiples today. But the likes of Premier Foods show that many UK shares that have actually risen in value still look too cheap to miss.So what are you waiting for?

The power of PontyPontypridd completed a unique achievement in Welsh rugby on Sunday evening as they won the double double! For the second year in succession they are Principality Premiership champions and SWALEC Cup winners, after sealing their second double on the trot with a win over Cross Keys in the Premiership final.Ponty had to endure a very tough autumn, as they lost coach Dale McIntosh and skipper Chris Dicomidis to Cardiff Blues and had to endure the untimely death of prop Stuart Williams in October. The players, coaches, supporters and everyone else involved with the club pulled together in the face of this extreme adversity and ended up winning the league and cup and going all the way to the British and Irish Cup semi-finals. There were some fantastic, high-stakes games played this weekend. Which players rose to the occasion and which were found wanting? Mixed messages: Chris Ashton scored a try for Saracens but was also guilty of unsporting behaviourThe SinnersA bad shoutChris Ashton is at the centre of a row about good sportsmanship after he shouted “push it” at Nick Evans when the Harlequins’ fly-half was lining up a conversion during the Aviva Premiership semi-final clash on Saturday.The Saracens wing’s crude attempt to put Evans off sparked a bout of fisticuffs between the two teams and the RFU responded today with a statement saying: “Respect is one of the core values of rugby union and the RFU head of discipline, Gerard McEvilly has this morning [Monday] spoken to Chris about the incident, his responsibilities towards the game and his future conduct. The RFU will follow up the matter in writing.”When the stakes are high, players push the boundaries of sportsmanship by doing things like calling to opponents who are carrying the ball in the hope they might pass to them by mistake. However, yelling at a goal-kicker just as they are taking a penalty or conversion is just that bit more cynical, obvious and unpleasant. You might think it, but don’t shout it.Ashton has escaped any official punishment but it might be nice if he issued an apology.Big hitterGenerous as Tom Youngs’ reaction was to Salesi Ma’afu’s punch during the Aviva Premiership semi-final, (see above), the Northampton tighthead still needs to take his seat on the Sinners bench this week. He punched the Tigers hooker twice – a right-hand to the body and a left-hand to the face – and was quite rightly red-carded.Ma’afu is lucky his rush of blood did not cost Northampton the game as his 14 team-mates bravely battled to their 21-20 win over Leicester, but if he is banned at Tuesday’s disciplinary hearing the Saints will have to face two finals without him in the next two weeks, which will be a high price for his team-mates to pay.Seeing red: Salesi Ma’afu was sent off for this punch on Tom Youngs in the semi-finalCostly slipHarlequins came from nowhere to qualify for a place in this season’s Aviva Premiership semi-finals and, against the odds, were leading Saracens 17-11 early in the second half at Allianz Park.Just when it looked like an upset might be on the cards, the hosts began to increase the pressure and when Brad Barritt powered towards the line, Harlequins centre Tim Molenaar made the mistake of not hanging on to complete the tackle. Barritt got up and charged over the whitewash for a try which was converted for an 18-17 lead and from there Saracens went on to win 31-17. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Glasgow WarriorsLeicester TigersLeinsterNorthampton Saints The defeat was by no means all Molenaar’s fault, but small individual errors can prove costly in the biggest games and Saracens certainly took heart from his lapse. Joy and pain: Northampton’s players celebrate their win while the Tigers are floored The SaintsClassic clashSome people are calling it the best Aviva Premiership game ever and the Northampton v Leicester semi-final certainly had drama, skill, physicality and passion by the bucketload.Northampton snatched the win at the death, 21-20, with a try from Tom Wood but the plaudits deserve to be shared by a host of players from both teams, who served up such a fantastic sporting contest, and by referee JP Doyle who managed this hum-dinger of a battle brilliantly. It wasn’t only the Saints who were saints on this occasion.Social media was alive with praise for Doyle on Friday night, because of his level-headed and empathetic management of a full-blooded and at times brutal battle.It was the kind of match people will talk about for years – a real classic.Forgive and forgetLeicester hooker Tom Youngs found himself on the wrong end of a left-handed upper-cut from Northampton prop Salesi Ma’afu during their semi-final. Youngs was sin-binned for starting the altercation but Ma’afu was sent off for punching.A few hours later Youngs produced a brilliant, sporting reaction on Twitter, when he tweeted to Ma’afu: “Good shot mate, go well in the final”. Ma’afu replied: “Cheers mate. The jersey can overcome us in the heat of battle. I owe you a pint.”It was an exchange which perfectly encapsulated the camaraderie between opponents which rugby holds so dear and it helped to sweeten a potentially sour situation.Magic MadiganLeinster were looking to reach their fifth consecutive league play-off final when they took on Ulster in the RaboDirect Pro 12 semi-final on Saturday night, but were trailing 9-0 after an hour, with the Ulster defence keeping them at bay.However, Leinster gradually upped the pressure and capitalised with a couple of Jimmy Gopperth penalties to make it 9-6 as the final ten minutes began.Ian Madigan, on as a replacement for Brian O’Driscoll, was the man who finally breached the Ulster line, dotting down for a precious try which Gopperth converted.Leinster hung on for the last eight minutes and Madigan was rewarded with the Man of the Match award.Match winner: Finn Russell helped Glasgow Warriors reach their first Rabo finalYoung WarriorGlasgow are through to their first RaboDirect Pro 12 final, after losing at the semi-final stage for the last two years, and much of the thanks must go to young fly-half Finn Russell, who held his nerve in the biggest match of his life to kick his team back into the game after Munster took a 7-0 lead.Russell is only 21 and before this season he has not made a league start for Glasgow, but he has developed into an excellent player in the last few months. He coolly struck three first-half penalties to enable the Warriors to go into half-time 9-7 up and then converted Gordon Reid’s try early in the second half and the Scots held on for a 16-15 win.

I continue to treasure her wise counsel about juggling my relationship with God, my responsibility to my family, and my obligations to the institutional church. I still have the bean bags representing those three commitments that were part of her charge to me at my ordination. I was blessed to count her as a friend and a colleague. This obituary is published here.Barbara Jeanne Hartley Schlachter died early Wednesday morning, February 17, after a battle with ovarian cancer. She was born August 10, 1945 to Jeanne Louise Sommer Hartley and Charles Beatty Hartley and grew up on the shores of Lake Erie on her grandfather’s fruit and vegetable farm. She attended elementary school in Huron and Centerville, Ohio and graduated from Huron High School in 1963. She graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 1967. She did her graduate work at Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary, receiving an MA in history of religions in 1970 and her M.Div. in 1972. She received the Dr. of Min. degree in Ministry and Marriage and Family in 1988 from Eastern Baptist Seminary and was certified as a pastoral counselor by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.Visitation was held on Sunday, Feb. 21 at Trinity Episcopal Church at Gilbert and College Streets in Iowa City. The service of burial was held on Feb. 22 at 11 a.m., also at Trinity Church.Barbara was one of the first women to be ordained to the Episcopal priesthood in 1977 and helped to found the Episcopal Women’s Caucus, serving as its first president. She served parishes in White Plains NY, Staatsburg NY, Troy OH and Cedar Rapids, IA. She gave her time to the church beyond the parish, serving both at the diocesan level and national level. Among other things she served on the Church Deployment Board, was the first ordained woman to serve on the Executive Council and chaired the Committee on the Status of Women.She married the Rev. Mel Schlachter on Aug. 24, 1968, and they had two children, Erika Hartley Schlachter Sward, and Jacob Hartley Hanson Schlachter. She is survived by them and by their spouses, David Sward and Laura Hanson Schlachter, and two grandchildren, Matthew and Colin Sward, in addition to her sister, Suzanne Hartley.After she retired from parish ministry, she continued her work as a pastoral counselor and spiritual director. She also went through training as a Healing Touch practitioner and saw her ministry in her later years as one of healer. Her final passion was the environment and healing the earth, especially climate change action. She was proud of being arrested at the White House for protesting the Keystone XL pipeline, and she co-founded Iowa City Climate Advocates and 100 Grannies for a Livable Future to educate, advocate and agitate about climate change.She was a breast cancer survivor who successfully went through treatment and lived another 17 years cancer free and was diagnosed in February 2015 with ovarian cancer. She loved reading and the beauty of the out-of-doors, and most of all she loved her family and is grateful to them and to all her friends who supported her in her journey.In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation in memory of Barbara Schlachter to carry on her love for children and reading at 123 S.

From the Better Business BureauThe Better Business Bureau (BBB) recently released the results of an investigative study regarding scams involving gift cards, which have cost victims hundreds of millions of dollars over only a few years. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The study shows that payment with gift cards is a common request from scammers and involves several different schemes like government impersonators, romance scams, fake online sales, illegitimate tech support, and phishing emails.The data collected from the BBB Scam Tracker has revealed that gift card payment scams have TRIPLED over just the last four years and customers 65+ are more likely to have their money stolen.If you are asked to pay by purchasing gift cards, you are being scammed. Gift card funds are NOT backed by fraud protection guarantees like credit/debit cards and are virtually untraceable.Red flags to know and avoid:No government agency ever requests money through gift cards.Providing the numbers for a gift card is like sending cash, and the money is rarely recoverable. Gift card payment requests are a significant red flag for a scam.Keep the receipt when buying a gift card. Keep the physical card as well. These may help prove that the card was paid for and activated if problems arise later.Inspect the card carefully before buying it to be sure it has not been tampered with. Some scammers open the card to get the numbers on the back so that they can take the money when the card is later activated.What to do if you’ve been scammed:Immediately report to the company that issued the gift card by calling the number on the back of the card.Notify the company/agency that the scammer impersonated as an authorized representative.Better Business Bureau– file a complaint with your local BBB if you lost money or report a scam online at BBB.org/scamtracker.Federal Trade Commission (FTC)– file a complaint online at FTC.gov or call 877-FTC-Help.Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)– file a complaint online at IC3.gov/complaint.Consumer Financial Protection Agency– file a complaint online at ConsumerFinance.gov/complaint or call (855) 411-2372.

Faena Group is pleased to announce the completion of the Faena Aleph Residences, Foster+Partners’ first project in Latin America and Faena District’s latest chapter. The completion of the building is another step towards consolidating Faena’s pioneering urban development and stands as a fresh contribution to Argentinean culture. The Faena Aleph Residences underscores the Group’s dedication to reach out to leading designers, artists and architects worldwide to contribute their unique vision and boost Argentina’s image on a global level. With this project Argentina will be the first country in South America to possess a work by Foster+Partners, one of the world’s most prestigious architecture firms. Led by Pritzker Prize Laureate Norman Foster, Foster+Partners employs a team of accomplished architects that integrate technology and sustainability into the creation of architectural icons: the Reichstag in Berlin, the Nîmes Mediathèque in the south of France, the Wembley stadium in London and the Beijing airport, among others.Save this picture!© Nigel Young“The Aleph is a building that is very much borne of its place. From the traditional Buenos Aires house, which takes advantage of the climate to combine outdoor with indoor living, to the industrial architecture legacy of the Puerto Madero District, the Aleph creates a wonderful new living environment that is unique to the Faena Arts District.” says Brandon Haw, Senior Partner, Foster+Partners.Save this picture!© Nigel Young”We have called on Foster, one of the world’s most prestigious architects, to bring his vision to our own. Faena District was inspired by a desire for redefining the concept of ‘dwelling’ and ‘habitat’, and was conceived as a constantly evolving work of art, a unique piece that offers an alternative lifestyle—different, rich, engaging. We are seeking to redefine how we live in cities, by combining culture, green spaces and architecture: we want to generate more general awareness,”concludes Alan Faena.Save this picture!© Nigel YoungFaena Aleph Residences is inspired by the architecture of traditional Buenos Aires housing and its cultural legacy. The exquisite design of the apartments blurs the boundaries between exteriors and interiors and redefines the concept of urban housing. Double-height patios are combined with split-level living spaces, and each apartment has vaulted ceilings and bronzed sliding windows to maximize natural ventilation. Through a combination of moveable screens and balconies, shade can be modified for both low and high sun angles, ensuring privacy and drawing daylight into the living spaces and terraces.Save this picture!© Nigel YoungThe modern, minimalist structure designed by Foster+Partners engages in a vibrant dialogue with the recycled silos that make up the Faena Hotel designed by Philippe Starck, as well as the old mill that was transformed into the Faena Arts Center. This pioneering urban district integrates iconic architecture, avant-garde culture and new technologies with nature and extraordinary views of Rio de la Plata, the world’s widest river.The Project, The New Architecture And Its Legacy To Future Generations To carry on Buenos Aires’ urban tradtion, the Faena District collaborates with designers from various schools to produce architecture with national character. These partnerships offer unique contributions to the urban landscape and the future heritage of the city. France furnished the talent of Philippe Starck to design forms and spaces of playful elegance and epicurean refinement. Now comes the turn of Foster+Partners from Britain, another country that has contributed greatly to the image of Buenos Aires. It is precisely within the parameters of that functional, experimental and innovative tradition that Foster+Partners stands.Save this picture!© Nigel YoungIn the Aleph Residences project, Foster is true to his philosophy and, as he has done in many other historic environments, proposes that the new buildings should reflect the spirit of the age and place. The project reveals Foster’s talent for designing buildings and urban structures that have a contextual relationship with waterfronts, as he has done in London or Hong Kong.Save this picture!Level 03 Floor PlanSave this picture!Level 07 Floor PlanSave this picture!Level 08 Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessInnovative, Bioclimatic, European School Complex Second Prize Winning Proposal / Var…ArticlesNew Culture Centre and Library Winning Proposal / schmidt hammer lassen architectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Buenos Aires, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.
