UK shares have performed well recently. Since the start of November, the FTSE 100 index has risen about 17%. There could be further gains to come in 2021 however. Now that there’s a Covid-19 vaccine, sentiment towards the UK market is improving dramatically. Goldman Sachs, for example, just told its clients to buy UK equities.Of course, stock selection is likely to be important in 2021. The pandemic isn’t over yet. Some companies are likely to face challenges in the year ahead. With that in mind, here’s a look at seven UK shares I like for next year.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…UK shares for 2021Starting with large-cap UK shares, one company that strikes me as a good play for 2021 is FTSE 100 consumer goods champion Reckitt Benckiser. Why? It owns Dettol and Lysol. Even with a coronavirus vaccine, I expect hygiene to remain in focus. It’s worth pointing out that in the last few weeks, the CEO and chairman have spent about £750k on the stock. Clearly, these insiders expect the share price to rise in 2021.Another FTSE 100 stock I like next year is BAE Systems. It’s held up pretty well this year due to the fact that its revenues are largely government-backed. Looking ahead, it should benefit from the £16.5bn defence spending boom the UK government recently announced. BAE shares are currently about 25% below their 52-week high and trading on a P/E of 10. I see upside potential here.Packaging specialist DS Smith has also held up well this year, benefitting from the online shopping boom. Recently, it announced plans to reintroduce its dividend and said it has confidence in the business going forward. I think this stock could benefit as sentiment towards UK shares improves.I also like financial services giant Legal & General going into 2021. It didn’t cut or cancel its dividend this year. Looking ahead, I think it has plenty of growth potential in the retirement space. With the stock still more than 20% below its 2020 high and trading on a P/E ratio of about eight, I see potential for share price gains.Growth stocks Outside the FTSE 100, I like Softcat. It’s a FTSE 250 technology company that helps organisations with their IT infrastructure. I expect digital transformation (cloud, cybersecurity, data analytics, etc.) to remain a big theme in 2021. Recently, the company said it has “positive momentum.” Although Softcat’s share price has gone nowhere over the last 12 months, I think it’s only a matter of time until this growth stock moves higher.Another technology stock I’m bullish on is online fashion retailer ASOS. It’s had a good run this year as online sales have increased due to the pandemic. For the year ended 31 August, profit before tax was up 329%. I think ASOS shares have the potential to keep rising however. Digital habits we’ve picked up during Covid-19 are likely to stick around.A small-cap play for 2021Finally, in the small-cap space, I think Keystone Law has a lot of potential. It’s an innovative legal company that’s disrupting its industry. Keystone recently announced it’s continued to see a recovery across all areas of its business, with like-for-like performance having now returned to very-near-pre-Covid levels. As a result, it now expects to deliver profits for the year comfortably ahead of current market expectations. As sentiment towards UK shares improves, this stock should benefit.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 10) Spices“Garlic, oregano, chilli pepper, paprika, chilli… you need a well-stocked kitchen to flavour your food with the right sort of spices. They’re anti-inflammatory and immune-enhancing, and the best one, which I take as a supplement and eat once a week, is turmeric.” 6) Oats“Cook them with semi-skimmed milk or water. They’re a source of slow-release energy and are high in fibre. They’re also beta glucan rich, which helps immune function, and make a perfect pre-training breakfast.”7) Blueberries“They contain high levels of protective nutrients which stop the ageing process. A car gets rusty when it gets old, and the human body is the same. Cells decay, skin gets wrinkly and collagen breaks down. Blueberries are the best at slowing down that process, though other berries are good too.”Hard graft: Quins preparing ahead of the 2016/17 season8) Sweet potato“They contain beta carotene, like carrots, though normal potatoes are actually higher in all other nutrients. Sweet potatoes are higher in carbohydrate but lower on the glycemic index, and provide a good starch for energy. They’re another slow carb, while normal potatoes only have the effects of slow carbs when combined with other vegetables or lentils.”9) Coconut and olive oil“Coconut oil is good for your immune function and digestion, and kills bad bacteria. It burns quickly, like a carb, and is heat stable. In other words, when you heat it to a high temperature, it doesn’t de-nature.“Olive oil is full of flavonoids and is anti-ageing. Use coconut oil for frying, and drizzle olive oil over salads and cooked food.” 5) Chicken and turkey“A nice, high-quality, lean protein source. You should always buy free range minimum, and preferably organic. That means the animal won’t have been given antibiotics or hormones, and will have been fed organic food itself. You want to be eating as close as you can to wild meat.“Turkey is a fraction leaner, but other than that they’re very similar.” It’s essential to eat well during pre-season training if you want to reach peak fitness in time for your first league match. Here are the top 10 foods all rugby players should be eating to help make those sessions pay off… THE END of summer is synonymous with the conclusion of pre-season training. It’s the time of year when clubs can reflect on all the hard work that has been done; the beers and ice cream have been sweated out, and final preparations are being made for the opening game of the season.But why stop the good work? Rugby World is here to help! We asked England’s nutritionist Matt Lovell for the top ten food groups all rugby players should be eating as we draw ever closer to the regular season, to ensure they reach their peak fitness and sustain it.Life’s a beach: Exeter Chiefs get put through their paces on Exmouth Beach1) The Broccoli family“Broccoli supplies important detoxifying chemicals,” says Lovell. “Other vegetables you can eat are brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale, bok choi and cabbage. They will aid recovery, liver function and increase antioxidant protection. They are also good for maintaining hormonal balance.“There’s a link between poor health (especially prostate health in men) and plastics in the environment. You can’t do this every time, but it’s worth considering getting your veg from a fruit stall that sells produce in paper bags, and likewise your meat from a butcher occasionally.”2) Eggs“They’re very high in high-quality protein, B vitamins, zinc and good fats. They’re good for sustaining lean body mass and rebuilding muscle, and are also beneficial for your immune system and hormonal balance.“It’s a myth that too many eggs cause high cholesterol, and you can eat three or four a day if you’re training. There’s a much greater link between excess sugar and insulin to high cholesterol.”On yer bike: Billy Vunipola ticking over during a Sarries pre-season session3) Wild Salmon“It’s higher in essential fats and protein, and lower in total and omega 6 fats than other salmon. You also get too much total and omega 6 fats from eating too many grains, and in excess they are pro-inflammatory for your joints and muscles. You can buy frozen wild salmon quite cheaply in supermarkets.”4) Beans and Pulses“Kidney beans, chickpeas, peas and lentils. They’re very high in fibre and protein, and they’re rich in folate and other B vitamins. They’re high in minerals such as magnesium, too, which help your muscles relax and recover.“Fibre is essential for optimum digestion and colon health. This food group, also known as slow carbs, are two thirds carbs and one third protein, and release energy slowly – a good lunch option.” This article first appeared in July 2014.

Using money that annually accrues in the state’s Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund for affordable housing programs rather than partially sweeping them into the general fund was among Gov. Ron DeSantis’ budget priorities.“Everyone understands that the circumstances have changed,” DeSantis said Monday. “We could see an economic downturn (was anticipated), but we could not forecast the economy simply stopping for a time. None of us is going to get what we want.”In cutting more than $1 billion from the budget, which goes into effect July 1st, the governor slashed affordable housing spending by $242 million to $145 million.Despite eliminating nearly two-thirds of the affordable housing appropriation, DeSantis said the state’s affordable housing programs still will be better funded next fiscal year than this year because of federal assistance from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act approved by Congress in March.Florida received $250 million last week for state rental and mortgage assistance programs from the CARES Act.DeSantis said he was certain the state could use the $250 million in federal money to supplant the $242 million budget cut.“Any economic hardship now will be tied to this pandemic,” he said. “So with the $250 million in CARES money, you end up with having more money (for affordable housing) than what was actually in the budget.”The state will earmark all but $10 million to help Floridians who have lost their jobs or business incomes during the COVID-19 emergency with rent or mortgage payments.The state’s Rental Assistance for Affordable Housing Tenants fund, managed by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC), will receive $120 million in short-term rental assistance for households affected by the COVID-19 emergency; more than 2.4 million Floridians have lost jobs or been furloughed since March.Using this money, FHFC will reimburse participating multifamily properties with rental assistance for April through December for households that have lost jobs or income. Please enter your name here $120 million will go to rental and homeowner assistance, to be used for emergency repairs, construction, rehabilitation, mortgage buy-downs, down payments, closing costs and homeowners’ counselingBy John Haughey | The Center SquareFlorida lawmakers had adopted a $93.2 billion fiscal year 2021 budget that, for the first time in years, fully funded the state’s affordable housing programs at $387 million. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The state’s Rent and Mortgage Assistance fund also will receive $120 million for rental and homeowner assistance. The money will be distributed to counties based on local unemployment rates and be used for emergency repairs, construction, rehabilitation, mortgage buy-downs, down payments, closing costs and homeowners’ counseling. The budget adopted by lawmakers in March included $387 million in funding for the Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund. DeSantis and the Senate prevailed over the House, which had budgeted $144 million in its proposed spending plan.The budget allocated $267 million to the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) program and $120 million for the affordable apartments program.The Sadowski fund was created in 1992 to leverage private and federal funding for affordable and workforce housing. Its 10-cent surcharge for every $100 paid on real estate transactions was doubled to 20 cents in 1995. This year, it is projected to generate nearly $400 million.During the early 2000s housing boom, trust fund revenues grew and legislators began diverting millions from the fund for other purposes. A 2018 Senate Community Affairs Committee analysis determined lawmakers had swept more than $2 billion from the fund since 2001 to plug budget holes and provide tax relief.Last year, lawmakers swept $240 million of the fund’s $332 million, including $115 million for Hurricane Michael recovery.In 2018, Sadowski money financed the state’s $400 million response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

This project took place in northern Hamamatsu, over a duplex house for two families ―the mother and her son’s family― standing on its own in the midst of an industrial district lined with a number of factories. One of the two families was represented by the mother and nobody else, and the other: her son, his spouse and four children.Save this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaWe were required to work out an arrangement for this unbalanced inhabitant ratio as well as secure an open space for the families to get together. Along with the physical limitations of the site impeding reclamation of the external environment, we deliberated on the openness of the internal space and control of light.Save this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaSoft light and openness generated by closeness – In consideration of the ambient surrounding, we ensured privacy by keeping a fixed distance from the outside space. Meanwhile, clerestories gather plenty of light and its soft reflection on the wall surface permeates throughout the space. Closeness and openness are two contradicting elements at a glance, yet we pursued the cohabitation of the closeness of sense of protection from the outside world and the openness of the diffusion of light. By having these two opposite elements live under the same roof, we were able to achieve tranquility and extensiveness for a pleasant space embracing the big family.Save this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaAppearance that blends in with the surrounding – We assigned each of the three blocks produced by the zigzag structure a function: “for the mother”, “sharing” and “for the son and his family”. The simple dimensional structure design created space for clerestory while protecting privacy, extensive living space and large-volume underfloor storage and dedicated the second for to the son and his family. The uneven roof created multiple clerestories, resembling the iconic appearance of the factories in the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaSave this picture!Detailed SectionSave this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaTatami mat and polycarbonate – The entire floor of the shared living room is lined with tatami mats. The shared living room has six entrances connecting to other rooms and a spiral staircase connecting to the children’s room on the second floor which make the living room the epicenter of the house where different scenes of everyday life are met. Inhabitants could have just bypassed this space with wooden flooring or floor covered with some hard material; the tatami mats invite the families to sit, lie down, or be in whatever position they may feel comfortable with. Unexpected stay in the living room would produce natural interaction among the family members.Save this picture!© Kiyoshi NishiokaThe polycarbonate adopted for the wall surface of the living room transmits soft light to connect the spaces, creating a comfortable distance between the families at which they are able to enjoy their private life while feeling each other’s presence. This inventive combination of tatami mats and polycarbonate enhances the unique extensity of this duplex housing and helps conjure up interactions and interrelationships among the family members.
