Over the years, he’s built up a net worth of nearly $90bn from investing.What I love about Buffett is his investment strategy is very simple. There’s nothing about his approach that you or I can’t replicate. With that in mind, here’s a look at three simple Buffett rules I plan to follow in 2021 to grow my wealth. 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 rule #1: buy stocks when others are fearfulOne of Warren Buffett’s most powerful pieces of advice is that the best time to buy shares is when others are fearful. He says this is the time to get greedy.This is an approach I’ve followed since I started investing and it’s always worked well for me. For example, in the stock market crash this year, when other investors were panicking, I bought ASOS shares at 1,100p, JD Sports Fashion shares at 320p, and PayPal stock at around $90. Today, these shares trade at 4,500p, 800p and $235 respectively.Buying when others were fearful has boosted my wealth significantly. I’m hoping that in 2021, we see more great panic-selling-related buying opportunities at some stage.I’ll point out that I don’t only invest when others are fearful. I drip-feed money into the market at regular intervals. However, when fear levels are high, I load up on stocks. To quote Buffett: “Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble.”Rule #2: invest in highly-profitable companies One of the secrets to Warren Buffett’s success is he invests in businesses that are very profitable. While other fund managers are looking at companies’ earnings growth, he is focusing on profitability metrics such as return on equity (ROE) and return on capital employed (ROCE).Companies that have consistently high ROE and ROCE ratios, such as Apple (Buffett’s top stock) earn a significant return on the money invested in the business. This means they have more money to reinvest for the future, which leads to more growth.In recent years, I’ve been focusing more on stocks with high ROE and ROCE ratios and the results have been excellent. For example, my shares in dotDigital – a highly profitable UK tech company – have risen from about 25p to 150p. In 2021, I’ll be continuing to focus on highly-profitable companies in the same way Buffett does.Rule #3: look for winning companies with ‘economic moats’Finally, another rule Warren Buffett puts a lot of emphasis on is finding companies that have competitive advantages, or ‘economic moats’ as he likes to say. This could be a strong brand, a technological advantage, a patent, or plenty of other things. The key is that it puts the company in a strong position and protects profits.“The most important thing is trying to find a business with a wide and long-lasting moat around it,” Buffett has said. “Why is that castle still standing? And what’s going to keep it standing or cause it not to be standing five, 10, 20 years from now?”Some companies I own shares in that have strong competitive advantages include Apple, Amazon, Diageo, Unilever, Microsoft, and Rightmove. These all have powerful brands and strong market positions. As a result, all have been very good long-term investments.In 2021, I’ll be continuing to invest in these types of winning companies.

The making of Justin Tipuric

first_img The making of Justin Tipuric“Every Sunday morning he asked me if he could play No 10 and every week I refused,” says Chris Penhale of his days coaching a 13-year-old Justin Tipuric at Trebanos RFC. “One week, when a few players didn’t turn up, we did start him at ten and he did a decent job – he’d do a better job now!”It’s a recurrent theme with Tipuric, how his skill-set wouldn’t be out of place in the backs, but it’s his work-rate up front that helped Wales to their latest Six Nations title – he was the top tackler as they won the 2021 championship, too, with 86.His modesty and humbleness are other common threads when talking to those who have been involved in his journey, as is his love of Trebanos. The blue scrum cap is worn in their honour while he has long coached various teams at the club, with chairman Penhale saying: “He knows where his roots are and likes to give something back. He hasn’t changed at all.”Rugby World talks to others about Tipuric’s route to the top of the game, which will see him embark on a third British & Irish Lions tour this summer.Justin Tipuric breaks through Italy’s defence to set up a try in 2020 (AFP/Getty Images)The making of Justin TipuricTHE MENTORJustin Jones was Tipuric’s first rugby coach at Trebanos RFC in the 1990s“I first came across Justin when he’d just turned eight. I’d played for Trebanos and was about to start a junior section there. I was taking my two sons to the park and they said I should do an up-and-under for Justin. I kicked the ball up in the air and this eight-year-old came up on roller blades to catch it with two hands. I did a few and he caught every one.“His father, Andy, used to captain the first team when I played. He had a bet with Justin that he’d never get on the (honours) board as Trebanos captain like him; it was quite shrewd – he’s gone all the way but hasn’t captained Trebanos!“I remember my boys would be out in their Swansea kit but Justin was always watching Super Rugby, so he’d have one of those kits on, like the Hurricanes. His favourite player was Richard Hill – a quiet guy who got on with his work.“One thing that sticks in my mind is that whenever I was speaking, he was always staring right at me, listening, while the other 20 eight-year-olds were climbing trees! The other thing that stood out is that he was very skilful and had a natural tackling technique; he always found it very easy to tackle.“I remember we played Bonymaen U11 and they had this guy ‘Big Jamie’, who was 5ft 10in at 11. No one could tackle him, he was ploughing through everyone, but Justin never missed him, he always got him round the ankles.“He could kick, pass and tackle, and he’s ridiculously strong like his dad. We played him in the back row and at ten and 12 because he’s so, so skilful. If you put him in the back row, he’d stand at ten and if you put him at ten, he’d be going into rucks! “I coached him right through to the U15s, when he’d settled in the back row, but then we started losing numbers and had to fold. We sent players to other clubs but he loved Trebanos so much he didn’t want to play for another club. He gave up rugby for a year and played football; people say he could have made it as a goalkeeper. He then came back at 16-17 when we had a youth team.“I’ve gone full circle now and started coaching again with my youngest and Justin does three or four sessions a year for me. He always does skills and has helped me out a lot with coaching. He makes time for the village and the club.”THE TEACHERDan Cluroe taught and coached Tipuric at Swansea College“He was very quiet and shy when he came to us, but he was also quite mature in a way and got jokes some of the other 16-year-olds didn’t. He came to life on the rugby field and had some of the biggest hands I’d ever seen!“He did a BTEC Level Three Sport and you’d have to really push him to take questions or say something in class. He didn’t like any attention but he’d never not do his homework. Justin Tipuric in sevens action for Wales (Getty Images)“At the time we didn’t have a separate rugby course, but we were almost running an academy structure. He came into a strong, well-established team – Leigh Halfpenny was there – and had to work his way up from the second team, although it was very clear he was a first-team player after a couple of games.“His skill-set was just another level. He played centre a number of times for us as well as back-row. He had an awesome rugby brain and would read the game very well – not many boys can transfer between the back row and centre at 16-17.“He was very skilful but there is one blooper I remember from a tournament we played at Warwick University. Against Colston’s, Tips did one of the worst clearing kicks I’ve ever seen, straight down the throat of their full-back, who scored a try.“He started training with the Ospreys during that first year and established himself in his second year. They tried to bulk him up but that didn’t suit his game, he’s very athletic. Then he played sevens and they stripped it right off him, so he was back to the machine you see now.”THE COACHWhen Tipuric made his Ospreys debut in 2009, Sean Holley was head coach“Justin had played through the academy and was really impressing. We always did due diligence, so me and the coaches knew about the academy players and we’d spend time watching the Welsh Premiership where we’d farm boys out – we sent Justin down to Aberavon – and Wales U18 and U20.“I remember (performance director) Andrew Hore not making much of how he looked. He’s never been unfit – he’s got a brilliant engine – but he didn’t look like a professional rugby player. Andrew said that if Justin ever played for the Ospreys first team he’d eat raw eggs, so after we’d picked him I brought some eggs to the next management meeting. He ate them to be fair!“From Justin’s first game we could see his impact; he was very effective. He was also very quiet and unassuming. In those early-ish days, we made him captain for games when internationals were away to bring him out of his shell and develop him as a leader.Justin Tipuric scores a try for the Ospreys in 2010 (Inpho)“Both Marty Holah and Filo Tiatia did a lot to help develop Justin, doing extras after training and going through games. Filo and Marty would always be first out and last in, and Justin picked up on that. The first port of call with New Zealanders is always the catch and pass. They also looked at the jackal when it first came to prominence; Marty was brilliant at it – grappling, reading the hit, the nuances.“We used to train the sevens with the backs if they weren’t needed for certain lineout work and if we went for a six-two split on the bench we knew Justin could cover the backs. I always came up with a contingency for if we had a yellow or red card; if we lost a back and needed somebody in defensive or attacking situations, like off scrums, we’d put Justin in the backs and play with seven forwards; we had a good front five then.“He always produces high-impact, big moments – in attack and defence. Then there’s his leadership now, his set-piece, he can kick the ball… He’s one of the best players I’ve ever worked with.”THE TEAM-MATEDan Lydiate has played both with and against Tipuric over the past decade“I first remember Justin from Wales’ World Cup training camp in 2011. He was always killing fitness, he was fitter than anyone. I remember thinking, ‘Jesus, he’s got a hell of an engine’. He’s just a naturally fit bloke; when he runs he looks like it’s effortless whereas the rest of us forwards are trundling along.Dan Lydiate supports Justin Tipuric in contact on the 2013 Lions tour (Inpho)“I have one story of playing against him. As we were setting a scrum, we were chatting, ‘Alright Tips’, ‘Alright Lyds, how’s it going?’ Then the next minute he comes flying up the side of the scrum and lifts me over the top of it. I was tamping! He’s the ultimate competitor.“He’s one of those annoying guys who is good at everything. He’s technically gifted – he was a goalkeeper as a kid so his hand-eye coordination is quality and he’s one of the best passers in the team. People don’t give him credit for how good he is around the contact area. He doesn’t look like a massive guy, but it’s how strong he is and the work he gets through. Especially in the last couple of years with Wales, it’s the unseen work.“He’s comfortable carrying in the wide channels and his decision-making is on point; he’ll fix the player and give someone else the space to go round. He’s got a good kicking game and as a lineout forward he’s the best jumper I know. I’d probably go as far as saying he’s the best player I’ve played with.“He’s a really tough bloke and he’s a good leader as well, especially over the last couple of years at the Ospreys and he’s had the chance to captain Wales on occasions. He’s quite a calming influence and he obviously knows his rugby.“He’s got 80-odd caps and been on two Lions tours, but he’s so humble. He’s happy going about his business, letting his performances on the field do the talking for him. He’s a massive family man, a really private bloke – he doesn’t have social media – but he’ll always be there for you. I can’t speak highly enough about the guy.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Justin Tipuric has played more than 80 times for Wales (Getty Images) We chart the Ospreys, Wales and Lions back-row’s journey from a small village to the top of the rugby world This article originally appeared in the April 2021 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

first_img The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Hopkinsville, KY [Washington National Cathedral] For too long, too many Americans have falsely believed that the evil of racism is largely a thing of the past. We have failed to take seriously the cancer of white supremacy that lurks beneath the surface of our collective life. Today, in Charlottesville, that ugliness exploded into public view, and we must not look away.Let me be perfectly clear: Violence and extremism in the guise of racial identity or racial pride are as sinful and twisted as violence and extremism committed in the name of God. The tragic events in Charlottesville today, and the hatred that fueled them, grieve the heart of God. All of us need to repent of the racism that still flourishes in our nation.Together, we join with all people of conscience and goodwill to pray, in the words of our Prayer Book, that God would “take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth.”We will pray for the victims of this tragedy; for God to soften the hearts of those blinded by racial hatred; and for all Americans to find the courage and strength to do the hard work of repairing the racial divisions among us.The Very Rev.

Where? The loft is a part of the former school building built at the end of nineteenth century. The house is located in small south-Moravian city named Mikulov well known because of its unique landscape and wine.Save this picture!© Jan ŽaloudekWhat? The space of former lecture hall was devalued by new concrete ceiling during the communist time. Above the hall was created hardly usable attic space. Beautifully carved roof frame was hidden and waited for revelation.In meantime the space of former lecture hall was changed into flats. It will never be again one continuous space.Save this picture!© Jan ŽaloudekWhy? When we have discovered this unique space we looked for a way how to keep the static logic, how to keep the atmosphere, how to comply with heritage protection laws and the most important, how to create comfortable space for living.Save this picture!DiagramHow?The most important decision was to keep everything in original condition. One of our rules is that sometimes the most important part of the design is not to design.Save this picture!© Jan ŽaloudekThe attic was segmented by steel rods in a steady rhythm and there was a need to connect space and find the way how to go across the rods. We have enlarged the rectification nooses and created frames in the size of human body. The rods divide the space into individual “rooms”. The walls are imaginary as same as in the Kim Ki-duk’s movie.Save this picture!© Jan ŽaloudekWhom?The project was done. But the most complicated part was to find someone who fit in this space. It is widely the biggest studio apartment. We made also family version but it was too complicated. At the end we found ideal residents, a couple. They use it as a summer place during the time spent in Czech Republic. Save this picture!© Jan ŽaloudekThe budget was pressing us for some compromising solutions and some rough details which are going with the concept. We hope that the old spirit was preserved.

Thought for your pennies?

first_imgSome charities try to collect a million pennies. In the US the March of Dimes is a popular appeal. But what do a million pennies look like?At the MegaPenny Project you can see what a million pennies look like – and it might be more than your charity was expecting. The site offers examples of what a thousand, million, billion, or even trillion pennies would look like if stacked together.It’s an American site so the pennies are question are American, so the scale isn’t quite comparable with UK pennies. Still, if you were appealing for a million pennies, this could prove a handy guide to the kind of office space you’ll be needing to store and process them.
