Each venue will be eligible for a grant of up to €2,500 from the operator. Following discussions with retailers, PMU will increase the financial support offered to its network to €23m, with the additional €8m to be distributed to the 3,500 retailers closed during November’s second lockdown. This, it added, meant that should the lockdown be extended, could prevent funding for trainers and racetracks being increased in 2021. The sum is to be distributed to cafes and bars that sell PMU products and were forced to shut twice as a result of the pandemic. French horse racing giant Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU) has pledged a further €8m (£7.2m/$9.7m) in funding for its retail partners affected by novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

In November France Galop, the governing body for flat and steeplechase racing in the country, revealed that the industry was losing €15m per month under lockdown. Tags: Covid-19 Pari-Mutuel Urbain “This new network support plan is an act of solidarity towards our most affected café-bar partners, some of whom have not had any income since the end of October,” PMU managing director Cyril Linette said. “These traders, who are now facing a completely unprecedented economic situation, are part of the PMU team; they are the architects of conviviality and the social bond created by horse racing throughout France,” Linette said. “As such, it is therefore important for us to be by their side and to invest to support their recovery.”

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Soon after the coronavirus crisis began, many companies had to scrap their dividends. But over the past months, dividend shares began to resume payouts. In my view, the current situation in the markets makes dividend shares the top strategy for the next year. Let me explain why. The UK stock market is in a tricky place right now. Analysts and economists are still trying to figure out the disconnect between the stock markets and the economy, which has been one of the most discussed topics in the financial world this year. Although the world economy has suffered its deepest recession and is expected to shrink by 5.2% according to World Bank forecasts, stock markets have actually rallied.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…Generally, I would say that the most important reason for the rally is persistently low interest rates, which led to the boost in stock prices. And as long as interest rates remain low, I think dividend shares with high yields are key to building a successful portfolio right now. As such, I’m going to take a look at three FTSE 100 shares that offer a high dividend yield.Passive income: 3 dividend shares I’d buy right nowTaking the above into consideration, here are three top UK shares with high dividend yield I’d buy right now for a passive income. Standard Life Aberdeen — The nearly 8% dividend yield currently offered by Standard Life Aberdeen makes this stock the perfect buy and hold option for me right now. This high dividend yield is especially an attractive return in the current low-interest-rate environment. This year, Standard’s shares dropped by nearly 20%, however, the investment company is starting to show good signs of recovery lately. Since late October, Standard’s shares rose by 25%, and the company’s new CEO Stephen Bird brings new hope for investors. Looking forward, Standard Life Aberdeen has recently announced that it plans to sell its Parmenion platform. In my opinion, this is good news for the company and might push the stock price higher. Aviva — Shares in Aviva have fallen around 24% since the start of the year. Still, in my opinion, it remains one of the best UK shares to buy right now. A month ago, I suggested that Aviva shares looked like a bargain. Since then, its shares soared from 256p on Oct 29 to 322p on Nov 29, an increase of 25%. Looking forward, I strongly believe that shares of Aviva will continue rising as it offers a high yield of 6.5%. British Petroleum — The oil and gas company has seen its shares lose around 45% of its value in 2020. This was quite expected given the fact the Covid-19 has paralyzed oil and gas companies. Moreover, the oil crisis in March had a huge impact on oil companies like BP. Still, British Petroleum pays a quarterly dividend for shareholders, and its annual yield, which stands at 6.01%, makes it one of the best dividend FTSE 100 shares. Overall, I think BP is a great bargain right now for a long-term investment.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS When did you start playing rugby?I started at Hendy when I was about six. I played rugby and football until I moved into youth rugby, then the games were on Saturday so I had to choose.Who was your boyhood hero?My grandfather is Irish and Tommy Bowe has always been my idol.Have you played other positions?I was an openside until I was about 12 then the coaches saw I had a bit of pace and switched me to full-back or wing. I am mostly wing now but play a bit of centre for my club, Llanelli.Who has had a big influence on you?Byron Hayward, with Wales U20 last year and now with the Scarlets, and Dai Flanagan at the Scarlets too. When did you first link up with the Scarlets? I played for their U16s and U18s and then got an academy contract when I was 18, when I came out of playing for Wales U18s. I made my first-team debut in the last LV= Cup game in November. It was a really good experience and it was a Wales derby, against Cardiff Blues, with a crowd of over 6,000.Are you learning a lot from Wales U20?It was really good last year. It helped me as a player. On a Tuesday we train against the senior Wales squad so defending against the likes of George North and Alex Cuthbert is a great experience and means I don’t worry about defending boys my age.What are your aims now?I hope to have a really good Six Nations with Wales U20 and, fingers crossed, I want to get selected for the U20s World Championship in Italy and do well there. Hopefully that will propel me into first-team contention for the Scarlets next season. On the charge: Joshua Adams in Wales U20s action against England. (Photo Huw Evans Agency) RW Verdict: This sports performance and management student runs 40 metres in 4.88 seconds just a couple of tenths slower than Alex Cuthbert and George North so he has the critical raw materials to be a top player.

Atrium House is a vacation home for a family of three generations on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. It is built on a slight ridge that marks the former location of the coastline a thousand years ago. In relation to the open and expansive landscape, the building seems more like a low wall than a house. It is built around a completely enclosed atrium courtyard that is designed to serve as a fixed point, a sheltered outdoor room. The rest of the property is left undisturbed as a meadow where grazing sheep prevent the land from returning to forest.Save this picture!© Åke E: son LindmanSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Åke E: son LindmanThe house is narrow, but its openings facing out are wide, giving the interior the character of a niche like shelter in the open space of the landscape. While the roof maintains a consistent elevation throughout the house, the interior floor rises and falls in accordance with the surrounding terrain. This means the height of the ceiling varies within the main spaces, which are arranged in a continuous ring around the atrium. Within this continuous space, the smaller rooms are assembled in a number of solid blocks.Save this picture!© Åke E: son LindmanSave this picture!Façades – SectionSave this picture!© Åke E: son LindmanInspired by the impressive materiality of Gotland’s vernacular agricultural architecture, the masonry construction has a natural plaster colour that has been mixed with carbon black, exterior metal parts made of oxidised zinc, and oak doors as well as windows that have been treated with tar oil. The large sliding glass windows are mounted on the surface of the exterior walls, according to the same principle as many barn doors.

With real estate prices in the Czech Republic among the highest in Europe, the local market lacks affordable housing and therefore calls for alternative development solutions that would also be able to strengthen the quality of public spaces. DADA Distrikt provides a locally unique proposition to the problem: the previous storage facility has been adapted into a mixed-use and residential complex with a variety of shared and community spaces. It’s relatively economic reconstruction was made possible through shared funding and direct sales, therefore avoiding additional investment returns to developers and fees to real estate agencies.Save this picture!© QualibauThe building is located adjacent to the brownfields of the historical industrial Zbrojovka area in Brno, facing the river Svitava which is now activated by just a bike lane and bears the potential of becoming a mediating element to change the whole district. With this intention we designed a corner entrance to the building, transforming the intended residential function into a high-quality urban and urban-communicating multifunctional facility. To further connect the function to the street we planned at the ground level a generous open space plan for hosting commercial and office spaces. The assignment itself, as well as the choice of the object, underlines its industrial aesthetics as an added value. Player’s in today’s real estate market are looking for elements that have an overlap. If this overlap also has a history and a certain degree of complexity, it is all the more attractive.Save this picture!© QualibauSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© QualibauThis is, for example, the reason why there has never been any speculation regarding the removal of the elevator car in the courtyard of the building. It is a sculpture of the frozen history of the place and thus becomes an element of the luxury of the project. Each adaptive-reuse project needs to be treated based on the potential and complexity of the building itself, and in the case of DADA Distrikt, the inspiration laid in the historical combination of its industrial and functional content with a decorative accent on the facade. Another original element we maintained and highlighted is the rounded corner of the staircase, which gives the whole material a unique look.Save this picture!© QualibauSave this picture!© QualibauDesigned as a shell-and-core, the main load-bearing structure has been cleaned up to its most elementary and therefore strongest form. This process revealed the possibilities of how to shape the layout solution. When adopting an existing building, it is important to be let guided by the building and adapt it to its essence. The opposite procedure leads to a disproportionate price of the reconstruction or the reduced operability of the project. In response to the issue with floods in the Country and the building’s sensible closeness to the riverside, we designed a green roof as a tool for water management. The roof becomes a filter for the rainwater, slowing down the flow and therefore making the building a responsible player at the urban level of the area. The greywater is also used throughout the building for its internal functions such as washrooms and irrigation.Save this picture!© Kubicek studioProject gallerySee allShow lessPresence in Hormoz / ZAV ArchitectsSelected ProjectsRiver St. Joe Brewery / moss DesignSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Brno, Czech RepublicLocation to be used only as a reference.
