Here’s how I’d follow Warren Buffett’s pre-millennium advice to get rich

first_imgTotal invested (£) Kevin Godbold | Sunday, 6th December, 2020 Image source: Getty Images. 40 US investor and business magnate Warren Buffett has been enormously successful. And at 90, he’s one of the richest people in the world because of a long series of great investments.But he’s worked very hard at it and shows no sign of easing up. He loves the game. In fact, he loves investing and business so much that he’s done little else with his life. And that story reveals itself in his authorised biography, The Snowball. Even now he still enjoys turning up at the office to put in several hours every working day.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…Warren Buffett’s advice for ordinary investors (like me)And that kind of commitment and focus is what it takes to outperform the markets in a really big way. But Warren Buffett said in an interview before the year 2000 that he thought most people shouldn’t bother trying to copy him. Instead, his pre-millennium advice to the ordinary investor like me was to seek diversification in investments and add regular money – perhaps monthly. But he went even further and suggested an investment in an index tracker fund would be an excellent way to proceed. And I can see his point. If I dedicate my life to investing in the way he has, there will be no time left over for other careers, interests and pastimes – such as going on holiday!You see, taking a less-intensive approach to investing and doing it in a passive way can still produce decent returns over time. For example, If I invest £400 per month and manage to achieve an annualised return from the stock market of 7%, I could actually get rich. And 7% is often quoted as a realistic long-term expectation for returns from the general stock market.Passive returns can be bigHere are what the numbers could look like:   Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

For example, I’d likely select trackers that follow the FTSE 100 index, the FTSE 250 and America’s S&P 500. Indeed, it would be easy to spread my monthly investments between several funds because the minimum investment thresholds are often as low as about £25.I think trackers could form a solid base portfolio. But I like investing and I find it to be a fascinating and absorbing activity. So, I’d also aim to improve my annualised returns by doing a mini-Buffett. In other words, I’d make a few select investments in individual company shares after thorough research and I’d monitor those investments carefully.

A series of service volumes in very poor conditions were demolished to reveal the building’s original structure.

The Pieve (Church) of Santo Stefano in Cennano is located to the west of Castelmuzio along the Pieve country road. The church was constructed on a sacred Etruscan site, evidenced by the many graves, urns and inscriptions unearthed in the area. The site later became a pagan temple and finally a Christian church, located along an important medieval pilgrimage route and rebuilt in the Romanesque style in the second half of the 12th century.Save this picture!© Pierluigi DessìThe three apses have survived while the interior is now a single nave. The Parish declined in the 14th and 15th centuries until it was completely abandoned. The church was restored in more recent times. The property annexed to the church (perhaps once used to host pilgrims along the pilgrimage route and more recently as a farmhouse) was already included in the Leopold Cadastre from 1865 but was presumably built in previous eras.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessGEH House / I.R.A.Selected ProjectsJuuL House / NKS ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510776/a2-house-vps-architetti Clipboard Italy A2 House / VPS ArchitettiSave this projectSaveA2 House / VPS ArchitettiSave this picture!© Pierluigi DessìHouses, Adaptive Reuse•Castelmuzio, Italy “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510776/a2-house-vps-architetti Clipboard Year:  “COPY”last_img read more

The Poorkan villa used to be an abounded building. Our clients (Mojdeh Ghodousi and Ali Kamran) decided to build a villa on their inherited land. Instead we encouraged the proposition of renovating the existing building on the on.Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiWe intended to recycle the space, in order to bring it back to the cycle of useful, contemporary spaces.Our clients were requiring a villa as a space for themselves and their friends to get to gather and enjoy sometime away from the daily life, a space for a modern lifestyle in which inside the circle of friends people are as close as family members to one another. The villa is a place for the family to spend time together with their loved ones, to collect the positive energy and to enjoy the pleasant weather of the countryside. Once there was an abandoned second house with fruit trees garden located in the village of Poorkan just 45 min drive from Tehran, in the mountainous landscape of Alborz. A building like many thousands of similar empty low quality buildings scattered all over Iran, waiting to be demolished and rebuilt. Save this picture!© Parham TaghiofWe didn’t follow this socially and economically unsustainable fashion; instead aiming for a recycling of the potential spatial capital that resided in the buildings’ 150 square meters. Therefore the project was defined with three main strategies: to rehabilitate the villa with local technology and workforce, keeping the existing structure, to integrate the open and closed spaces to their fullest having the flow of air from the garden to the most intimate space of the villa, and to reach an Iranian space with light, shadow and color under the clarity of pure geometry adapted to the structure. Save this picture!SectionThe villa was thence materialized into a temple-like white space reinterpreting some principles of Iranian architecture. Principles of plasticity in form with clear geometry and structure was achieved by two sword-like cuts that provide a continuous clear-cut space from the staircase to the ceiling(s), and the principle of delicate interplay of light, shadow and color in the interior by using the Sedari- (meaning three doors) a traditional architectural element- in a new way. The Sedari also does the task of unifying the interior with the garden, letting the air to belong to both. Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiThe building volume consists of three interrelated spaces in two levels. The entrance on the northern side of the villa leads towards an open space ornate with light and shadows coming from the Sedari. The ground floor is elevated through a staircase into the space of ease and serenity in which exists two wide steps performing as resting platforms that one can lie on and spend some quiet time. Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiThe Sedari is the anchor of the villa. It functions as it used to traditionally: as the sunlight reaches the colorful windows of the Sedari, the white interior is being clad by red, green and yellow lights, moving up the walls, crawling down the ceiling and lying on the floor, creating a dynamic immaterial ornamentation, changing the spatial ambiance as the day goes by. But it also functions in providing a more contemporary spatial quality due to its large scale: it brings full transparency and the possibility of turning the whole interior into a large balcony with its oversized door-windows. Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiPoorkan villa’s benefit to the Muslim community is inherent in its spatial qualities and its approach to vividly reuse the traditional spatial capital and bring it back to the cycle of space making. In this way confirming that the Iranian community can be proud of their contemporary art and architecture, without remaining in a state. Considering the limited budget of our client for this project, we benefited from reusing the existing space as a base and intended to revitalizing it, with the aim of local construction material and easy technology.  The project was quickly realized its key constructional intersections were checked properly.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanAs of today the villa is not only in use by the client and her friends during the weekends, but also she is planning to once in a while, let the tourists and visitors to stay there. Considering the main proposal which was to renovate the old building instead of demolishing and rebuilding it, we decided to justify the existing space with the principles of a pioneer Iranian geometry.Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiTherefore with the idea of briefing the project with two trigonometric sections, it was important to reach clear intersection points. It was an initial matter to have different layers of material with different thicknesses lying on top of each other, while the clear sword-like cuts of the space stay perfectly executed. In general the construction materials used in this project are coming from Iran and easily available. The contractors and master craftsmen from Iran and Afghanistan developed this project with the tools of shop drawings and primavera programs to be able to control our time and footprints.The over scaled doors of the south façade (the Sedari) is rotatable from the center point. The steel frames of the windows have an extra layer of CNC steel sheets, for them to be thicker and stronger. This process was actualized by Mr. Shirzad in Tehran.Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiMr Mohamadreza. Sedighi who manufactured the large colorful glasses in Karaj, have also made them double glazed with colorful Plexi sheets, where needed.All the local contractors were very respectful and reliable. The most important impact is reaching to the strategy of reuse and reconditioning of the existing spaces and to avoid demolition and construction of the new builds.Save this picture!© Soroush MajidiDue to an unsustainable economy (oil based economy) in Iran many new buildings are being constructed. On one hand this process creates jobs for many people and on the other hand due to mismanagement, the number of empty buildings without any spatial quality is increasing.We emphasize on the potential value of leftover spaces, waiting to be revitalized. We are intending to drag the attentions to this forgotten national wealth that exists besides the high-end architecture.Poorkan villa is not a large scale project but it reaches to the optimum of spatial quality. It is a physical manifestation of our idea.Save this picture!© Parham TaghiofPoorkan villa is a leftover space which has been recycled and transformed into an Iranian and poetic piece of architecture. Iranians and in a bigger scale the Muslim community, would be able to feel confident in such a space. It can change the cultural habit of demolishing and materializes an alternative for an Iranian contemporary space.Project gallerySee allShow lessGarden Pavilion in Museu de Serralves / Diogo Aguiar StudioSelected ProjectsGCP Wood Cabins Hotel / Atelier LAVITSelected Projects Share Iran Photographs:  Soroush Majidi, Parham Taghiof Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Villa Poorkan / ZAV ArchitectsSave this projectSaveVilla Poorkan / ZAV Architects Photographs “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

Kurdish regional government criticised for banning reporters from visiting PKK bases

first_img December 28, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today urged the Kurdish regional government in northern Iraq to lift a ban on journalists visiting the bases of the Turkish armed separatist group, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). It also called for the release of a correspondent of the satellite TV station Kolsat who was arrested yesterday in Mosul, 80 km west of Erbil, the regional capital.“Kurdistan is one of few regions in Iraq where local and foreign journalists can move about freely without constant risk to their lives,” the press freedom organisation said. “This ban is a serious violation of their ability to report on the clashes in Iraq between the PKK’s fighters and the Turkish army. The regional government in Erbil and the national government in Baghdad must stop blaming journalists for crises.”The Kurdish regional government yesterday banned journalists from going to meet PKK combatants who have found refuge in the Qandil mountains on the border between Iraq and Turkey. Kurdistan Regional Government spokesman Jamal Abdullah said “media reports have led to an acceleration of the crisis with Turkey.” The Iraqi Journalistic Freedoms Observatory said several journalists were arrested near the Turkish border as a result of the regional government’s decision.In a separate development, Fayçal Ghazala, the correspondent of the satellite TV station Kolsat, was arrested yesterday at his home near Mosul by Kurdish security forces and could face charges of “terrorist activity.” He is reportedly being held in the Dohuk police station.The Iraqi news agency Aswat Al-Iraq meanwhile reported that the editor of the weekly Al-Fayçal, Mohammed Mazhar Al-Shaheen Al-Shumari, was freed on 17 November. He was arrested by the US military in October in Tikrit (180 km north of Baghdad) for reasons that are still unknown.

“If you kill an elephant you may go to prison, but you might not if you kill a journalist”

first_img Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today launched an ad campaign in some 60 African newspapers to draw attention to the many murders of journalists in Africa that go unpunished. The launch comes on the seventh anniversary of Norbert Zongo’s murder in Burkina Faso and a few days before the first anniversary of Deyda Hydara’s murder in Gambia.Produced in French and English, the advertisement is being distributed by Presse et Démocratie, a press freedom network created in 2000 in the French-speaking countries of Africa by media and journalism watchdogs, journalists’ associations and news media.The ad says: “In some African countries, if you kill an elephant you may go to prison. If you kill a journalist, you might not.” It goes on to stress that those who killed Zongo in 1998 in Burkina Faso and Hydara last year in Gambia are still at large.There are strong grounds for suspecting persons close to the government in both murders. But witnesses who could expose Zongo’s killers are refusing to talk, while the official police investigation into Hydara’s death has limited itself to considering absurd theories and has produced no results.Zongo was the editor of an independent weekly, L’Indépendant. His badly-burned body was found inside the wreck of his car on 13 December 1998. Prior to his murder he had been investigating the circumstances of the death of David Ouédraogo, the personal chauffeur of François Compaoré, President Blaise Compaoré’s brother. Ouédraogo was tortured to death by members of Presidential Security Regiment (RSP).Hydara was the co-editor of The Point and Banjul correspondent for Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Reporters Without Borders. He was shot dead at the wheel of his car on the night of 16 December 2004 after receiving death threats from the intelligence services, which had him under physical surveillance just a few minutes before he was shot.
