I heard on the radio Boris Johnson reckons a second wave of Covid-19 is beginning to bubble up abroad. So, with all the uncertainty in the air, what are the best UK shares to buy now?Firstly, I don’t think the possibility of a second dip in the stock market in 2020 is anything to fear. It may happen, but if it does I’d view it as an opportunity to buy cheaper shares. It’s a bit like going shopping when the sales are on. It makes sense to load up with washing machines, clothes, fast-food and everything else when they are cheaper than usual. And it makes sense to buy cheaper shares too.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…Hunting for the best UK shares to buy nowBut shares usually fall when underlying business operations suffer a setback. Or when the stock market thinks trouble is brewing ahead. And that can be off-putting. We usually must go against the grain of our emotions when it comes to buying cheap shares. The threat of another wave of coronavirus, for example, makes me feel like selling shares. But investing during uncertain times can often lead to the most lucrative purchases.That’s one of the basics of Warren Buffett’s strategy. He’s known for loading up with stocks when others are cautious about the stock market. Why? Because he can often buy shares in good-quality underlying businesses when they are selling cheaply. The second part of the strategy is to hold on to those shares for a long time. Over years, operations can recover, valuations can inflate, and share prices can rise. It’s made billions for him.So I’d buy shares right now. And if the stock market falls again, I’d buy more shares. But I’d emphasise the quality of the underlying business rather than the cheapest price. Indeed, if you look in the dustbin of the very cheapest shares on the market, you’ll probably find a lot of rubbish.Shares I’d pick right nowRight now, I like the look of several shares with defensive, cash-generating operations. Those companies have businesses that tend to be less affected by the ups and downs of the general economy. For example, FTSE 250 fast-moving consumer goods operator PZ Cussons looks like a decent recovery play. It’s under the control of a new, experienced chief executive who looks set to reverse the firm’s recent poor performance.And Premier Foods is experiencing a brand renaissance and higher earnings under a refreshed management team. The firm is sorting out its previous debt problems and the future looks bright for the business and its shares.Meanwhile, within the theme of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, I’d focus on Diageo, Britvic and Nichols right now. And in healthcare, I reckon the long-term opportunity is as strong as ever for AstraZeneca,GlaxoSmithKline and Smith & Nephew.Those are just a few shares I’d consider to be high-quality with reasonable valuations. Good luck in your search for others. Kevin Godbold owns shares in PZ Cussons. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Britvic, Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline, Nichols, and PZ Cussons.

The estate includes the parents’ home, four children’s homes, event space, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym, spa, library, study, home cinema, and performance space.Save this picture!© REXThe dream of a family patriarch was to design “a jewel box for individual lifestyles” in which he, his wife, his four children and each of their four families would reside. Because three out of the four children do not yet have families of their own, the building concept needed to be designed to accommodate the families that do and do not yet exist. The ensemble of five homes were to have the architectural integrity of a single building, to look as though they had always been part of the site and needed to incorporate a classic double stair. Save this picture!© REXTo create a structure in which each home could be experienced individually but also as a component of a larger domestic network, the estate’s program is organized into a necklace. The pieces of the necklace alternate between the five homes and five shared pavilions. Save this picture!© REXThe site commands views out to the ocean from a high bluff on one side, and into a dense, old-growth forest on the other. Straddling the line between these radically different landscapes, the necklace exists simultaneously at the beach and in the woods. Each of the five homes are thereby afforded different site experiences: ocean, forest, or half-and-half. While the ocean-side portions of the residence are on grade, due to the site’s steep drop-off, the forest-side portions extend horizontally into the tree canopy, giving these elements a tree-house experience. Entry is gained by driving under the residence’s elevated components into a secret garden at the building’s heart. Save this picture!© REXTo accommodate the possible needs and proclivities of the families, which do not yet exist, the five homes are designed with a distinct living typology based loosely upon one of five canonical, Modernist homes: Philip Johnson’s Glass House, Eero Saarinen’s Miller House, Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, and Ray Eames’ Case Study House No. 8, Louis Kahn’s Fisher House and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Tugendhat Villa. This will allow the four children and their families to gravitate towards the home that best meets their lifestyle or to enjoy an alternate experience with each stay.Save this picture!© REXDriving under the cantilevered home, one enters the arrival courtyard: a secret garden whose clear, fluted glass visually ties the three-generational family together. The residence’s main entry and its curling reinterpretation of a classic double stair provide access to the residence’s roof terrace, while also serving as an event space with views to the ocean and central garden. Save this picture!© LuxigonThe residence’s exterior is wrapped in mirror glass such that upon approach, the building disappears into the site. The effect reduces the perception of the structure’s large mass and surreptitiously achieves the patriarch’s desire for a structure that “looks as if it has always been part of the site” by looking like it isn’t there at all. By night, the exterior’s mirror glass appears to dissolve, creating a lively lantern on the bluff.Save this picture!© LuxigonReference: REXArchitectsREXDesign ArchitectREXKey PersonnelAdam Chizmar, Alberto Cumerlato, Mette Fast, Tyler Hopf, Gabriel Jewell-Vitale, Roberto Otero, Joshua Prince-Ramus, Aude Soffer, Minyoung Song, Elina Spruza, Alex Tehranian, Cristina WebbExecutive ArchitectAVGAConsultantsArup, Front, Kean Development, Magnusson Klemencic, !melk, Tillotson DesignArea35500.0 ft2Project Year2017PhotographsLuxigon, REXProject Year2017PhotographsLuxigon, Courtesy of REXArea35500.0 ft2Project gallerySee allShow lessA Walking City for the 21st CenturyArchitecture NewsMuseu Brasileiro de Escultura (MuBE) / Paulo Mendes da RochaArticles Share ArchDaily Necklace Residence / REXSave this projectSaveNecklace Residence / REX CopyAbout this officeREXOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectResidential ArchitectureResidentialUnited StatesPublished on November 02, 2013Cite: Barbara Porada. “Necklace Residence / REX” 02 Nov 2013.

Researching massive growth in giving. 95 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: Finance Law / policy Northern Ireland Trading Charity shops in Northern Ireland may have to pay rates for the first time if proposals outlined by the Northern Ireland Finance Minister are agreed.Finance Minister Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said this week that charity shops paying a proportion of the rateable value of a shop “would help us move towards the balanced principle that everyone on the High Street should start to pay something”. The proposals are part of a wide ranging review of rates which will soon go out for consultation.The minister said charity shops help to bring people into high streets or small towns, in particular when times are tough, but that there is a need to make sure this doesn’t upset the healthy retail mix that exists in many areas.‘I am all in favour of continuing to single out charity shops on the High Street for favourable treatment but I do think there is a case for limiting their growth’, the minister said.‘ We cannot have our high streets just made up of charity shops,’ he added.In his statement the minister quoted the example of England, Scotland and Wales where charity shops pay rates at 20%.‘If, for example, we reduced support for charity shops on the High Street from 100 per cent to 90 per cent — that is, they paid one tenth of their rates — that would only represent a small revenue gain for the Executive,’ he said.O’Muilleoir said he would like to see any future income from charity shops on the High Street go towards supporting entrepreneurship in the social enterprise sector.It is estimated the charity concession costs £87 million each year and may also be used by some shop owners to reduce their rate charges because vacant shops attract partial 50% rates while charity shops pay no rates. 96 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Charity shop rates in N Ireland under consideration AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Howard Lake | 24 November 2016 | News
