Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The Vodafone (LSE: VOD) share valuation has often puzzled me. For years it looked overheated. But that has rectified itself a bit in recent years, with what I’ve seen as a much-needed correction. With the Vodafone share price down close to 45% over five years, we’re now looking at a trailing P/E of around 17. I’ve been starting to see that as attractive value.Vodafone’s dividend policy has also had me perplexed. Paying big dividends, nowhere near covered by earnings, while building up debt? That looks like effectively borrowing money to hand to shareholders. I do like hefty dividend yields, but in my book, Vodafone’s approach was a big no. Dividends were cut back in 2019, which was a step in the right direction. But they were still not covered by earnings.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…Vodafone share price dropWe had figures for the year to March 2021 on Monday, and the Vodafone share price took a tumble in response. At the end of the day, the shares were down 9%. It seems to be because the results came in a little below forecasts. The dividend was maintained as hoped, providing a 6% yield on Monday’s closing price. So, as a dividend chaser, does this provide an extra special opportunity for me to buy now?My Motley Fool colleague Roland Head has taken a look at the numbers, and he’s pointed out that EBITDA was only 1% below market forecasts. Roland reckons that’s nothing to worry about, and I agree. If just a 1% miss can trigger a 9% Vodafone share price fall, I’d say stock markets are looking a bit twitchy right now. But I’m more interested in current dividend cover, and the company’s ability to keep paying out the cash over the long term. And what I see still troubles me.Future dividend policyVodafone announced a dividend of 9 euro cents per share. But adjusted earnings per share came in at only 8.08 cents. So, once again, the company is handing out money that’s not coming from earnings. In my investments, I generally like to see minimum dividend cover of between 1.5x and 2x, depending on the nature of the company. Not 0.9x, especially from a company that has big debts and needs cash to invest to grow. Does some doubt about the future of dividends lie behind the Vodafone share price drop on the day? I think it could.But what did Vodafone say about it? CEO Nick Read said “We remain fully focused on driving shareholder returns through deleveraging, improving our return on capital, and a firm commitment to our dividend.” So it doesn’t sound like there are any plans to reduce the payments. The company added that, as a medium-term ambition, it aims to provide a “minimum dividend of 9 euro cents per share per annum.”Dividend cover is all I wantThere was no talk of a progressive dividend policy. But until Vodafone grows its earnings enough to at least provide cover, I think that’s wise. So do I want to buy at the current Vodafone share price? Vodafone suggests it should see mid-single digit earnings growth in the medium term. And if it manages that, the dividend might be sustainable. But I’ll still wait until I see a clear prospect of improving dividend cover. Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 19th May, 2021 | More on: VOD Is this Vodafone share price dip a buying opportunity?

As the interior design was conceived in conjunction with the building design, there is a close relationship between both styles.It is a two-storey apartment with a roof top terrace. The first floor is mostly open-plan, combining dining room, living room and kitchen. Just the laundry and the toilet are enclosed by walls. On the second floor, there are two bedrooms with two bathrooms.

The use of natural materials such as wood and stone create a warmer ambience. As the kitchen is visible from the living room, appliances such as fridge and oven were located where it is not possible to view them from the living room. The microwave and the air conditioner are kept out of sight in cupboards.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiAdjacent to the stairs there is a long shelf to display art and books.

spyderskidoo/iStock(NEW YORK) — More than one-fifth of all states are falling behind on road safety laws, according to a new report released Tuesday by the group Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety.The 16th annual Roadmap Report evaluates each state on its implementation of road safety laws the group recommends and found that 11 states, including Arizona, Florida and Virginia, fall “dangerously behind.”South Dakota scored the lowest in the group’s rankings by implementing only two of the recommended laws, while Rhode Island received the highest grade by implementing 13 of 16 laws.The report ranks states based on the strength of their laws in five categories: occupant protection, child passenger safety, teen driving laws, impaired driving and distracted driving. Only six states and the District of Columbia were given a green rating for showing significant advancement toward adopting the recommended laws.Almost half — 47 percent — of passenger vehicle occupants killed were unrestrained, the group said.In addition to the 16 recommended laws used for the rating system, the group’s president, Cathy Chase, in a news conference Tuesday, cited that 406 laws are still “critically” needed in all 50 states as well as at the national level.“Right now, we are mired in mediocrity when we should be boasting about bold leadership,” said Chase.Thirty-three states were given a yellow rating indicating that there are still gaps with the recommended safety laws, while 11 were given a red rating for falling behind in their implementation.Matt Gannon, the head of federal affairs for Farmers Insurance Group and a panelist for the 2019 Roadmap report, explained the importance of just implementing one of the 16 laws recommended by advocates.“If every state enacted just one law this year, it would be great progress and many many lives would be saved”, he said.Other notable findings in the report include that the annual total cost of motor vehicle crashes is approximately $242 billion.Further, approximately 100 people are killed and more than 8,500 are injured every day on U.S. roadways. The number of deaths overall, however, decreased 1.8 percent in 2017 after increasing the two previous years. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
The incidence of chronic neck and shoulder pain increases with age, but sometypes of working can leave workers more prone to the condition, suggests astudy. Scientists in France studied a random sample of male and female workers bornin 1938, 1943, 1948, and 1953, with 21,378 people interviewed. They found the prevalence of chronic neck and shoulder pain increased withage and was more frequent among women. Repetitive working under time constraints, awkward work for men andrepetitive work for women all contributed to the development of thesedisorders, independently of age. But psychosocial factors also seemed to play a role in both the developmentand disappearance of chronic neck and shoulder pain, and the data did not showspecific interactions between age and working conditions, the scientists found.Occupational and Environmental Medicine 2002;59:537-544 Comments are closed.

Since the Discovery Investigations of the 1920s and 1930s, seawater temperatures have increased in the Atlantic sector by ∼1 °C; greater than the global mean rise. The aims of this paper were first to rescue the Discovery macrozooplankton data, second to provide quantitative “baseline” distribution maps, relating these to indices of temperature and food. Our third aim was to use the relationships we derived between abundance and temperature to project the potential affect of a 1 °C warming on the Discovery era distribution patterns. Based on the 1 m ringnet data retrieved from 615 stations (Nov–March), four taxa comprised >90% of the Antarctic macrozooplankton abundance: Rhincalanus gigas, Thysanoessa spp., Euphausia superba, and Chaetognaths. Most of the taxa, especially the more abundant ones, were warm water species penetrating into Antarctica and thus total macrozooplankton abundance decreased about 100-fold from 50°S to 70°S. While temperature correlated best with distribution at this large scale, food availability (proxied by a present-day satellite-based Chlorophyll a climatology) had a secondary effect, with the major euphausiids Euphausia superba and Thysanoessa spp. concentrated in high chl a areas. A modelled uniform 1 °C temperature rise produced a poleward shift for all taxa, but the Antarctic continent blocked this re-adjustment for the high latitude species, constricting their predicted range. More widespread polar/sub-polar species were predicted to increase their penetration into Antarctica by 4–12° in latitude, whereas the poleward shift in potential range of sub-Antarctic taxa were limited by the steep temperature gradient across the Antarctic Polar Front (APF). However, within the Scotia Sea the relatively warm temperatures of the northern Antarctic Zone, abundant food due to iron fertilisation and intense eddy activity provide a “gateway” for northern species to penetrate south of the APF. Our model predictions, based on measured distributional ranges and observed temperature increases, provide a yardstick with which to compare modern day data compilations and assess the potential effects of future temperature increases.
