Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Bank of England base rate is currently 0.1%. When I factor-in inflation (around 0.7%), cash in my bank account is losing me value. Obviously, I need cash for various reasons. It’s great to have a rainy day fund, and cash on hand for other liabilities I wasn’t expecting. But for excess cash that I don’t really need, I personally think I should be looking at FTSE 100 investment ideas. The aim is to try and make my cash work harder for me, outperforming interest rates for my cash.Ideas for income and protectionMy first FTSE 100 investment idea is to target dividend shares. What kind of yield should I be expecting? Some FTSE 100 stocks have cut dividends due to the impact of the pandemic. Others have maintained the payout level, and due to a falling share price, offer a generous yield. These yields can be seen at 6% or higher. The FTSE 100 average is just above 3%. 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…The risk of this investment idea is that no dividend yield is guaranteed. It’s a constantly changing yield depending on the share price movement and the dividend per share. If companies struggle in 2021 and beyond, dividends may be cut again. This would decrease my income received and could be lower than I was expecting to make.A second investment idea I like at the moment is buying FTSE 100 defensive stocks. I recently wrote a piece looking at utility companies and supermarkets. From digging deeper into the financial results from 2020, it’s clear that these sectors have continued to perform well despite the pandemic. This gives me confidence to buy into these stocks now with my excess cash. Even if we see a prolonged recession in the UK, these stocks could help me to beat the FTSE 100 average performance.On the downside, defensive stocks will underperform the market if the UK economy really shines in the second half of this year. From that angle, I’d be better off buying high-growth stocks instead that perform better on positive sentiment. However, I’d try to counter any risk by splitting up my cash and investing in a mix of defensive and high-growth stocksStaying invested with a diversified portfolioThis mix of FTSE 100 stocks is my third investment idea. I don’t specifically know which stock is going to be the top performer. So I’ll shake it up and own several to diversify myself. For example, I can bucket defensive stocks in one part, high-growth stocks in another, dividend stars in yet another. This mix should not only ‘blend’ my performance, but also reduce my risk to one company.Finally, my last idea is to reduce my ‘tactical trading’ once I’ve bought my FTSE 100 stocks. With cash rates low, I don’t really want to be selling out and holding cash as I wait for a new opportunity. Buying and selling frequently can actually reduce my returns. A great statistic I saw was that if I’d missed the 10 best trading days over the past 30 years by sitting in cash, my return would be reduced by 2% a year. Image source: Getty Images.

We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Since reaching a 52-week high of around 7,130 at the beginning of May, the FTSE 100 has since fallen back below 7,000.It’s difficult to pinpoint precisely one reason behind this decline. It seems UK shares rallied off the back of reopening optimism and improving economic performance. The outlook for the economy has continued to improve over the past few weeks.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…However, investors have started to become concerned about rising inflation and the impact new coronavirus outbreaks will have on company performance.But as a long-term investor, I’m not particularly bothered about what may happen with inflation and coronavirus in the next six to 12 months.I want to acquire UK shares I can buy and hold for the next five to 10 years. And with that being the case, I’ve been looking for FTSE 100 stocks that have fallen back to attractive levels in the recent stock market sell-off. UK shares on offer The companies I’m interested in fall into two different buckets. On the one hand, growth companies may benefit from technological change and economic growth over the next few years.On the other hand, there’s a basket of recovery stocks I want to own. These companies may not necessarily be suitable for all investors because their futures are far from certain. Nonetheless, I think buying these UK shares at low levels could produce high returns in the best-case scenario. FTSE 100 companies featuring on my list of growth shares include Rentokil Initial and Rightmove. I think both of these organisations are great because they operate in growth industries.The UK property market is constantly growing. Whether it be through rising house prices or increased building, the market for buying and selling properties in the UK is unlikely to ever disappear. Meanwhile, pests and vermin are just a fact of life. Some forecasts suggest global warming could lead to a substantial increase in rodent numbers. As one of the best-known pest control businesses in the country, that can only be good news for Rentokil. That’s not to say these UK shares don’t face risks and challenges. Rentokil is very acquisition-driven, and it uses a lot of debt. High interest rates could send the cost of this debt spiraling and cause problems with the company’s acquisition strategy, hurting growth. Rightmove could also suffer if interest rates rise. This may hit demand for property and send transaction volumes lower. Even after taking these risks and challenges into account, I’d buy both of these FTSE 100 UK shares after recent declines. FTSE 100 recovery plays On the recovery side of the portfolio, I think banks are some of the best investments. NatWest Group and Barclays stand out to me right now. Thanks to its investment division, Barclays has weathered the pandemic exceptionally well. As a result, it’s now in a great position to return to growth as the economy recovers.NatWest doesn’t have a significant investment business. Nevertheless, I like its recovery potential as one of the UK’s largest banks. The risks and challenges these FTSE 100 groups face include higher interest rates, which could hit demand for lending. Another economic slump would also hurt both lending and deposit growth. Still, I’d acquire both UK shares as ways to invest in the UK economic recovery.

He represented both Munster and Ireland schools before he won an U19 World Championship with Ireland alongside current Ireland team members Brian O’Driscoll and Paddy Wallace.His senior international career has seen him selected for two Rugby World Cup squads in 2003 and 2007 and was part of the sides that won five triple crowns, one RBS Six Nations Championship and Ireland’s second ever Grand Slam in 2009. His Munster career has seen him win two Heineken Cups, two Magners league titles as well as a Celtic Cup.Commenting on the announcement, Ireland Coach Declan Kidney said, “It is very important that we continue to retain players of the caliber of Donncha in Ireland and I am delighted that he has made the decision to remain here. I have had the pleasure to work with Donncha through many years of his career and seen him develop into the top class player that he is now. His professionalism and work ethic is second to none to the point where he is highly respected by coaches, players, opposition and supporters in equal measure.”Donncha O’Callaghan said, “As players we are so well looked after by both the national and provincial management teams and I feel incredibly privileged to be able to play the sport I love for both Ireland and Munster. Munster is my home province and the decision to continue my career here was an easy one when you consider the standard of players in the squad and the incredible support I have received from both the fans and my family. My focus now is to try and perform as well as I can to help Munster and Ireland to be successful.”IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne said, “It has always been the Union’s desire to keep our best players within the provincial teams so as to allow us to monitor their development. In an increasingly aggressive market place with overseas clubs constantly looking to take players out of Ireland, their retention is one of our top priorities.”Munster Coach Tony McGahan said, “We’re obviously delighted that Donnacha has agreed an extension of his contract. I believe it’s a massive boost for Munster given the strong interest there was in him from overseas clubs with far greater financial resources than Munster. He’s a hugely ambitious competitive character and I think this sends a clear message concerning that ambition and where it will be best served. Here in Ireland with Munster. I think it’s also a very encouraging sign for younger players to see a player of his calibre and universal appeal showing the loyalty and commitment he has done by agreeing this new deal. I look forward continuing to work with him. This is certainly good news for Munster Rugby.”Career DetailsDonncha O’CallaghanBorn: March 24th, 1979Ireland Career LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS

The Erich Sattler Winery is located in the village of Tadten, a typical village in the Austrian wine region of Burgenland along the border to Hungary. The property is 12 x 120 m with two existing buildings and a new construction in between. Towards the centre of the village is an existing L-shaped residential building with a courtyard and public access for pedestrians. At the other end of the property in the direction of the vineyards is an existing manufacturing and storage facility with service entrance. In the middle of the property is a new building that is limited by two fire walls and that is used on the ground floor as a barrel room, while the first floor houses a tasting room with kitchen, offices and guest rooms. The interior of the first floor has an east and a west terrace with two long glass facades that allow for flowing inside/outside spaces. The roof terrace above overlooks the village and offer a 360 ° view of the surrounding vineyards, the nearby lakes and the foothills of the Alps.The ground floor plan of the new building consists of a rectangle and the first floor of a parallelogram, which is oriented east and west. These two basic forms are connected by a series of spatial diagonals and merged into a flowing overall form, creating a number of diverse spaces, views and topographies which are relating to the sun, the patio, and the surrounding environment. The remaining areas of the parallelogram leave the east and west terraces which are used for events and wine presentations. The interior space can be used as a single large space or individual rooms through a large sliding wall and four large doors. In the middle of this space is a free standing pentagon-shaped construction with wooden panels that includes bath rooms and kitchen. The building itself construction consists of concrete and masonry, and wood construction for ceilings and walls. All terraces have wooden floors and the façade of the building is painted dark grey outside and white inside. The orientation of the glass facades, the integrated cantilevered canopies, the possibility to cross ventilation every room and the good insulation allow for a pleasant climate all year round.Project gallerySee allShow lessJulien De Smedt Lecture and Agenda book launch in TokyoArticlesViamala Raststätte Service Station / Iseppi-KurathArticles Share Save this picture!Courtesy of architects collective+ 19 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/53125/sattler-winery-architects-collective Clipboard Year: ArchDaily 2009 Austria ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/53125/sattler-winery-architects-collective Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officeArchitects CollectiveOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTadtenIndustrial ArchitectureInstitutional ArchitectureWoodAustriaPublished on March 19, 2010Cite: “Sattler Winery / Architects Collective” 19 Mar 2010.

By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Local NewsBusiness HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– The Peninsula Hotels, whose international hospitality brand has epitomised glamour and luxury for nearly a century, today announced the winner of its sixth annual classic car showcase, The Peninsula Classics 2020 Best of the Best Award. The winning car, the 1954 Ferrari 750 Monza, coachwork by Scaglietti, has achieved distinction both for its impressive racing history and its exacting restoration. It became eligible as a Best of the Best Award contender after winning Best of Show at the 2020 Palm Beach Cavallino Classic. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210208005295/en/ 1954 Ferrari 750 Monza wins The Peninsula Classics 2020 Best of the Best Award (Photo Copyright: Jay Miller) The Best of the Best Award was co-founded in 2015 by The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited (owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels), along with William E. (Chip) Connor, Bruce Meyer and Christian Philippsen. The Award celebrates the fine engineering and design of classic cars built by internationally renowned manufacturers, selected from an exceptional short list of winners from the most exclusive concours. This year’s award has a contracted list of nominees due to cancellation or postponement of partner concours in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19. The 1954 Ferrari 750 Monza was chosen from a selection of four nominees crafted by automakers from Italy, Germany, and the United States, including a 1969 Porsche 917 KH Coupé, coachwork by the Factory, 2020 Best of Show, Concours of Elegance Hampton Court Palace, 1931 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza Spider, coachwork by Zagato, 2020 Best of Show, Salon Privé and a 1929 Duesenberg Model J Town Limousine, coachwork by Murphy, 2020 Best of Show, Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The winner was selected by The Best of the Best Award’s esteemed panel of judges, including, amongst others, designers Gordon Murray (former Formula 1 designer for Brabham and McLaren) and Anne Asensio (Vice President of Design Experience at Dassault Systèmes), and prominent classic car collectors Laurence Graff and Jay Leno. “It was a difficult task for our judges to select a winner this year. Our judging procedures had to be carried out remotely and unfortunately the main awards event had to be cancelled, with social distancing measures and safety our top priority,” said The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie. “With such a prestigious collection of nominees, choosing one winner was especially challenging. However, it is always a great pleasure to spotlight the remarkable achievements of the automotive industry, and to create a small spark of joy in the current challenging times. These classic vehicles are an enduring testament to human artistry and ingenuity.” The winning 750 Monza made its original debut with a 2-litre motor at the Inaugural Grand Prix of the Imola Autodrome in June of 1954. After driver Umberto Maglioli secured first place for Scuderia Ferrari with the car, it was subsequently fitted with a 3-litre engine and went on to compete in several other major races that year, including the Monsanto Grand Prix (where it won), and Nassau Race Week – where it was driven by its original owner, Alfonso de Portago, and secured a 1st and two 2nd places. The car’s next owner, Sterling Edwards, raced the 750 Monza over the next two years mainly in California, including the Pebble Beach Road Races (an event he founded) in 1955 and 1956 – garnering four 1st-place and two first-in-class wins in the car. After the tragic death of his friend Ernie McAfee prompted Edwards to stop racing altogether, he sold the car to his engineer Bob Whitmer, who replaced its engine with a Chevy V8 and continued to successfully race it through the early 1960s. The car spent most of the ensuing 50 years disassembled, though its chassis, body, engine, and gearbox were all carefully preserved in a small San Francisco-area warehouse. In 2016, a complete restoration of the car was initiated under the direction of Bob Smith Coachworks, located in Gainesville, Texas, a process that took new owners Tom and Jill Peck of southern California over two years to complete. The refurbishment was guided by several noted Ferrari historians: Marcel Massini of Switzerland, Alan Boe of Braselton, Georgia, David Seielstad of Hawaii, as well as past owners Sterling Edwards’ son Hammond and Bob Whitmer, both from northern California. The vintage certification team at Ferrari Classiche in Maranello, Italy, was also helpful in piecing together the early racing career of the car while campaigned by Ferrari. Bringing their combined wealth of knowledge to the project, these experts employed many of the vehicle’s preserved original documents and instruments, including the original owners’ manual, toolboxes, build sheets, and a treasure trove of original photographs of the car. Computer modelling of these photos was employed to repair flaws in the body from the car’s racing days, and 3-D printing technology was utilised to duplicate some parts that were irreparable. The vehicle’s livery was restored to that which it sported in its first Carrera Panamericana race in 1954. Once fully restored, the 1954 Ferrari 750 Monza won the Enzo Ferrari Award at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and 2020 Best of Show at the Cavallino Classic, before being named winner of The Peninsula Classics 2020 Best of the Best Award. “It is a true honour to be recognised by the venerable judges of The Peninsula Classics,” said Mr. Peck of his car’s latest success. “Like so many classic cars, this one has been both a labour of love and the product of dedicated teamwork. The Best of the Best Award is a crowning achievement for everyone involved.” About The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award Through a shared desire to celebrate the best of what defines the automotive world, The Hon. Sir Michael Kadoorie, Chairman of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, launched The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award in 2015 with co-founders William E. (Chip) Connor, Bruce Meyer and Christian Philippsen. Each founder shares a common passion and appreciation of fine motor cars, the preservation of their heritage and immaculate restoration projects. The award, sponsored by The Peninsula Hotels, brings together elite ‘Best of Show’ winners from nine of the renown concours circuits around the globe: Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, Cavallino Classic, Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, Concours of Elegance Hampton Court Palace, Goodwood Cartier Style et Luxe Concours d’Elegance, Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Salon Privé, and The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.
