In my own portfolio, I have a fairly healthy mix of investments for income and for growth. Naturally there is crossover – I want my dividend shares to have growth potential, and I usually like my growth shares to pay a dividend. Adhering to my own set of criteria for choosing income shares, here are my personal top three choices right now.BAE SystemsBAE Systems (LSE: BA) has been a key component of my portfolio for many years. It has been a solid performer, in a sector that is less prone to rapid fluctuations. That makes it defensive, in both senses of the term.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…Its current yield of about 4.5% is by no means the largest out there, but it has been consistent. I also feel that in times of risk, like we are in now, BAE’s prospects seem fairly secure. The UK government, for example, announced its intentions last year to increase defence spending.Of course no share is without its risks. My main concern across most sectors right now is the potential for a global recession on the back of Covid-19. BAE makes much of its money from exports to other nations. This could be at risk for its profits and share price.BPAnother share that has been in my portfolio for a while, BP (LSE: BP), has growth as well as income potential, I believe. However the growth side is probably the riskiest aspect. Oil prices have bounced back somewhat from last year’s lows, but any global recession could put a halt to this.In terms of dividend shares, however, I think BP is a strong play. Despite cutting its dividend last year, and seeing its share price recover a lot of ground, it is still yielding about 5%. It also has a pretty solid record of dividend payments. If its income stream remains stable, I am sure its dividend payout will as well.GlaxoSmithKlineWith Covid-19 vaccines dominating news headlines for months now, it is no surprise a pharmaceutical firm makes it onto my list. In terms of dividend shares in the sector, GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) comes out ahead in the majors, offering a yield of about 5.5%.Though I don’t expect GSK to benefit directly from the vaccines, I suspect the sector, as a whole, should do going forward. It looks almost certain that Covid-19 will be with us for some time. Treatments, vaccines, and government support should help bolster the sector.Again, no investment is without its risks. As with the others, I think global recession is the biggest one for GSK at the moment. Big Pharma suffers from the purchase of non-branded versions of their drugs in countries like China.In times of recession, this becomes an even bigger problem, and one that governments may be less inclined to stop. Making medicine more expensive for the poor does not play well politically.

Ubicado en el área de planificación urbana Nieuw Leyden, el proyecto incluye dos casas separadas combinadas en un solo volumen. Las dos casas, prácticamente idénticas en el interior, están diseñadas como una sola unidad hacia el exterior, en la que sólo las dos puertas de entrada revelan su presencia.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgEl barrio se compone de parcelas rectangulares divididas dieciocho terrenos pequeños, con un garage comunitario semi-hundido, que exige nuevas soluciones espaciales y formales sobre el uso del espacio disponible, la luz natural, la privacidad, los espacios exteriores, la relación entre el estacionamiento y la vivienda, la manera de entrar, la flexibilidad y la identidad.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgLas dos casas están organizadas verticalmente: una sala multifuncional y bodega en el subterráneo, la sala de estar y un patio en el primer piso y las funciones más privadas como habitaciones y un baño en el segundo piso. En el techo hay una pequeña habitación multifuncional de madera y una terraza.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgLa escalera juega un rol fundamental en la distribución del espacio interior, funcionando como espacio de almacenamiento e instalaciones. En el primer piso, la escalera divide el espacio en las diferentes áreas funcionales.Save this picture!DiagramaEl diseño de la fachada, que unifica las dos casas idénticas, se basa en una cuadrícula neutra, evitando una jerarquía evidente. Debido a que todas las aberturas son similares, no es evidente lo que pasa en el interior; desde el exterior no se puede identificar una habitación de la sala de estar. De esta manera la fachada actúa como una máscara.Save this picture!CorteProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: King’s Cross Western Concourse Lighting DesignArticlesKlaksvik City Center Proposal / studio wokArticles Share “COPY” Dos Casas en Una / GAAGASave this projectSaveDos Casas en Una / GAAGA ArchDaily Photographs CopyAbout this officeGAAGAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLeidenHousesPublished on June 26, 2012Cite: “Dos Casas en Una / GAAGA” 26 Jun 2012.
