FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge I’m on the hunt for top UK shares to buy in 2021. Here are two I’m seriously thinking of adding to my Stocks and Shares ISA today.In a nosediveI don’t think Ryanair Holdings (LSE: RYA) is a UK share that’s for those of a nervous disposition. But it’s one I think could emerge as one of London’s hottest recovery plays in the new bull market.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 Irish flyer’s share price has dropped sharply since the start of 2021. It’s down 13% as market makers have headed for the emergency exits. I think Ryanair’s fresh dive should come as no surprise amid a flurry of fresh Covid-19 travel rules. News that the UK is floating the idea of making foreign arrivals stay in quarantine hotels is one of the new dangers facing the airlines.The risks to Ryanair’s profits in 2021 are considerable in my opinion. Covid-19 vaccines are being rolled out across the globe, sure. However, with authorities failing to get a grip on the health crisis, and new variants of the virus emerging, who knows when the business will get the bulk of its fleet off the ground again? I’d say problems concerning vaccine delivery in recent days offer another reason for the risk-averse to be concerned.Riding out the stormHaving said that, I don’t think Ryanair is in danger of going under like some of its rivals have. And as a long-term investor, I feel this provides me with an appetising buying opportunity. According to Morgan Stanley the business has almost 15 months’ worth of liquidity based on current run rates. I’m confident this should see it through the worst of the crisis.Again, I’m someone who invests for the long term. I buy UK shares with a view to holding them for a decade or more. And so I’m not concerned by City forecasts that suggest Ryanair will record losses of 73 US cents per share this fiscal year (to March 2021). I’m encouraged by predictions that the Dublin firm will bounce back to record earnings of 56 cents a share in financial 2022.Besides, I feel that Ryanair’s solid balance sheet will allow it to make the most of the eventual recovery. This doesn’t just include its chances to ramp up its operations swiftly as the fight against Covid-19 turns. As IAG’s takeover of Air Europa shows, the landscape will be ripe with exciting acquisition opportunities when the dust settles. I’d buy for the long term.Another UK share on my radarBefore I go, I’d also like to quickly talk about Ten Entertainment Group. The tenpin bowling operator faces the same profit dangers as Ryanair in terms of Covid-19 restrictions. But this UK share is also in good financial health to help it navigate the crisis.Indeed, recent government loans and changes to its revolving credit facility mean that the leisure giant has enough liquidity to last “well into 2022,” it says. The bowling craze in Britain is far from over and I think profits from Ten Entertainment’s high-margin and market-leading centres could roll in again when lockdowns are eventually lifted.

Julian Savea puts Lwazi Mvovo on his backside as Hurricanes snatch thriller

first_imgFriday Apr 6, 2018 Julian Savea puts Lwazi Mvovo on his backside as Hurricanes snatch thriller The Hurricanes snatched a dramatic last-ditch win in their Super Rugby clash with the Sharks on Friday, taking a 38-37 win thanks to a late converted try. Earlier in the match, winger Julian Savea got his hands on the ball and made Lwazi Mvovo pay for a poor tackle attempt.Mvovo appeared to just want to get in Savea’s way, which as we’ve seen on multiple occasions, just isn’t good enough against the big man they call The Bus. The Sharks winger went flying, well and truly dealt with by the former All Blacks powerhouse.The visitors had led 27-19 at halftime after each side has scored three tries apiece, but a late comeback from the Hurricanes, including a yellow card to the Sharks, allowed impressive centre Ngani Laumape to cross after multiple phases of attack, five minutes after the full-time siren.Number ten Ihaia West, in for injured Beauden Barrett, then completed the job with the straightforward conversion, taking his side ahead and sealing a memorable win in Napier.The visitors had looked the stronger side for large periods of the contest, but with momentum late in the game and a man advantage, the hosts managed to pick up their fifth successive win.This was the Sharks’ fourth loss from seven, but with a confidence boosting 63-40 win over the Blues last weekend, and six of their last nine matches based in Durban, they will take heart from the way they played.Match highlights below and the Savea fend is in the video aboveADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Volland, Kansas was founded in the late 1800s when Rock Island Railroad, in need of a midway stopping point between Alma, 7 miles northeast, and Alta Vista, 7 miles southwest, built a railroad depot, water tower, coal chute and cattle pens alongside the railroad tracks at the towns edge. In 1890, while the town of Volland had just a single digit population, the surrounding Washington Township hit the high-water mark of it’s population with 400 residents, most of whom did their shopping and socializing in Volland. Trains brought manufactured goods and exported farm products, cattle’s fattened on Flint Hills prairie grass and people prospered. In 1913 the Kratzer brothers, Otto and Bill, built what has been described as a two-story “towering brick general store” in the center of the town (from one end to the other, the town runs 1⁄2 mile down Volland Road North to South).Save this picture!© Mike SinclairKratzer Brothers Mercantile opened on October 18, 1913 and was filled with merchandise, served also as a post office and housed two telephone lines, quickly becoming a cultural hub for the surrounding community. On Sunday afternoons, families came to picnic under the trees on the west lawn. Children from the nearby school came in for penny candy and the local schoolteacher stopped by almost every afternoon. The town was bustling.Save this picture!Floor PlanLittle by little, starting during the Great Depression, the population shrank. Ranches that survived the Depression grew bigger but needed fewer farmhands; World War II sent residents off to urban factories; the depot closed in 1942 with the towns mail flung from a railcar and snagged from a hook, no longer stopping for freight or passengers; the post office closed in 1955; and the town witnessed it’s last cattle train in 1962. The Kratzer brothers general store served as a destination for neighboring towns, run by Otto Kratzer until the doors were closed after his death in the 1971. For 30 years the building sat empty, and exposure to the elements with no caretaker deteriorated the roof to the point of collapse, destroying both the second and first stories.Save this picture!© Mike SinclairWithin the last 10 years, a sort of renaissance has occurred in Wabaunsee and neighboring counties, with young ranching families moving back in and descendents of homesteaders restoring historic barns and schoolhouses. The surrounding Flint Hills tall-grass prairie has served as an attraction for out-of-towners who build vacation homes in the area. In 2013, what was left of the old Kratzer general store, a sturdy structure of brick walls with a limestone foundation, caught the eye of Patty and Jerry Reece, Kansas Citians who have a home nearby. The couple decided to purchase and restore the building, turning it into an art gallery with a small living space that would serve as an artist’s retreat. The Reece’s contacted el dorado to help with the renovation. On October 20, 2013 the Reece’s invited neighbors near and far to the store for an ice cream social to celebrate the building’s 100th anniversary.Save this picture!© Mike SinclairThe design team started by taking stock of what was left of the original building. While the roof, second and third floors had collapsed, the masonry shell was left structurally intact and was in good shape. The design team laid out a floor plan similar to the original, with a large open space at the front for events including dining, dancing, and art exhibitions where the main floor of the general store used to be and a catering kitchen and restrooms at the back on the first floor and a second-story single studio apartment where storage used to be. The majority of the second story was not rebuilt, leaving the gallery with an open, flexible and filled with light, revealing two stories of windows and showing off the full height of the original structure.Save this picture!© Mike SinclairA structural steel brace was installed in the gallery, preventing deflection and supporting the exterior walls. Because the brace was a focal point within the space, el dorado custom designed and fabricated the minimal piece in their shop to control the outcome with super clean details. Lighting for the gallery was integrated into the brace and placement at the where the original first story ceiling would have been provides some scale to prevent the two-story volume from overwhelming artwork on the walls. The living space, a solid block inserted into the void and floating at the back of the building, includes a studio style bedroom with kitchenette and bathroom.Save this picture!SketchPreserving this building and its history was a way of preserving the lifestyle and traditions of the area. El dorado’s design solution was a simplistic renovation that relied on clean forms, honoring the integrity of original materials and the context of the surrounding tall grass prairie.Save this picture!© Mike SinclairThe first exhibition in the general store, appropriately, was an exhibition of Otto Kratzer’s documentary photography and film. Otto was fascinated with photography, and with funds from his highly successful general store, consistently purchased the latest camera technologies with which he documented town life. From 4×5 glass plate negatives, to a Kodak postcard camera, to an 8mm movie camera, Otto produced an enormous volume of work, capturing life in the Flint Hills in the first half of the 20th Century. Much of Otto’s work was preserved by his granddaughter, who stored the film and negatives in a closet until a local historian recently spent countless hours digitizing more than 1,000 photographs and nearly six hours of film. The exhibition runs through Labor Day 2015.Save this picture!© Mike SinclairProject gallerySee allShow lessFeature House / Apostrophy’sSelected ProjectsDocumentary On Torre David, Once The World’s Tallest Slum, Released OnlineArchitecture News Share Volland General Store / el dorado architectsSave this projectSaveVolland General Store / el dorado architects United States Volland General Store / el dorado architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair+ 18 Share CopyGallery, Houses, Adaptive Reuse•Volland, United States Area:  4500 ft² Area:  4500 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Navigating the Mid Season Fungicide Debate

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Navigating the Mid Season Fungicide Debate Previous articleThe Future of Weed ResistanceNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 19, 2017 Andy Eubank SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 19, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News Navigating the Mid Season Fungicide Debate Fungicide debateWeather conditions this season have presented Indiana farmers with potentially tricky decisions for fungicide applications. Many farmers have significant acres with limited stands, so do they shut down investment on those acres or try to protect what is there? Andrew Ferrel is an Indiana commercial agronomist with Mycogen Seeds who says there will probably be situations where you need to make the fungicide investment.“The stand that is there, those plants that are present are going to be more valuable towards yield than what they were,” he told HAT. “So I don’t think that every field a fungicide application is going to be necessary, but I think there’s going to be some situations where we’ve got to protect that yield. You’ve got to kind of bite your lip and make the application because if you’ve got a susceptible hybrid present in the field, the disease pressure gets high, I think that need might be there. Those plants are valuable.”He added scouting is very important this year, especially where stands are thin. The knowledge you gain is valuable even on fields you elect not to control.“The best control is preventative control,” Ferrel says. “As an example, if you’re seeing southern rust pop up in the field, you want to be timely with an application and get ahead of it because fungicides are best used as a preventative rather than a curative. So just being out and present and looking at what’s going on, very important, because otherwise if you just wait until the combine rolls the field, you’ve lost yield. You don’t know why. You start blaming the wrong things. You start changing your management practices from year to year because you’ve got maybe a skewed opinion or misinterpreted why you lost yield.”Dow AgroSciences received Chinese approval of its Enlist corn about a month ago and Mycogen Seeds will be the first to sell the new product this fall for the 2018 season.“We’re excited to be able to offer a better form of weed control. Especially the last few years we’ve seen a lot of weed escapes due to the weather or spring residuals not being able to clean up fields the way we want. So, just being able to have another tool in the toolbox and we’re excited too with the genetics that we’ll be able to offer.”He said they’ve been sitting on some newer hybrids stacked with the Enlist trait, and now they’ll finally be able to share those with farmers.last_img read more

Members of his family, whose formal request to attend the trial had been refused, were detained while the hearing was taken place.The police also briefly detained about 30 activists who had gone to the court to support Uy. They included Le Ngoc Thanh, Hanh Nhan, Miu Manh Me, Phuong Uyen, Nguyen Thi Nhung, Peter Lam Bui, Hu Vo and Hoang Vi.Uy had been facing a possible seven-year jail sentence under article 258 for using his Facebook page to organize the campaign for the release of Kha, who was given a four-year jail sentence on appeal in August on a charge of anti-government propaganda.Vietnam is ranked 172nd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and figures in the 2013 “Enemies of the Internet” special report on surveillance.Support independent news providers in Vietnam by signing the petition here.Read the latest report on Vietnam entitled “Programmed death of freedom of information” here. Help by sharing this information A court in the southern province of Long An passed a 15-month suspended prison sentence today on the blogger and activist Dinh Nhat Uy for criticizing the government on Facebook. He was convicted under article 258 of the criminal code, which penalizes “abusing democratic freedoms against the interests of the state and the legitimate rights and interests of organizations and individuals.”“We condemn this conviction, which was a reprisal for Uy’s involvement in the online campaign for the release of his jailed younger brother, the blogger Dinh Nguyen Kha,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Although released, Uy will be under surveillance. The sentence is one more example of how the authorities harass the families of jailed cyber-dissidents.“Like the denial of defence rights during Kha’s appeal hearing, today’s presence of 400 plainclothes police in the courtroom to create the illusion of a public hearing and the harassment of Uy’s lawyers, which led one of them, Nguyen Thanh Luong, to withdraw from the case, highlight the bogus nature of these trials, whose outcome is decided in advance.”According to the indictment, Uy was prosecuted for four online posts. One was an article entitled “These party members who accept the truth,” in which he described a conversation in which two Communist Party members referred to the abilities of the party’s leaders in offensive terms.Another was about the activities of “Patriotic Youth,” an organization reportedly critical of the government. The other two were “insulting” about two national corporations – the military telecommunications group and the posts and telecommunications company.Although these posts dated back to December 2012, Uy was not arrested until June, when the campaign for his brother’s release got under way.Uy was released at 3 p.m. today but will be subject to a form of a home confinement during the 15 months of the suspended prison sentence and will continue to be subject to close monitoring for another 12 months thereafter.last_img read more

€2 million to tackle derelict sites in five towns and villages

first_imgFacebook The Rev William Casey (Rev Willie C) memorial, Abbeyfeale.Photo: Cian ReinhardtABBEYFEALE, Ardagh, Askeaton, Bruff and Rathkeale have received funding of €1.5 million from the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund to deal with the issue of derelict sites.It is the largest amount awarded to a single project in the country under this round of funding, while a further €500,000 be provided by Limerick City and County Council.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The aim of this project is to bring derelict properties in the core of the targeted towns and villages across rural Limerick back into use with an emphasis on re-use for housing, based on the delivery of demonstrator housing projects.The project will also develop plans for re-use of, identified derelict properties/ brownfield lands in the same towns and villages as community, social and economic infrastructure.The key idea is that the need for housing has not been sufficiently utilised as a potentially effective mechanism for the regeneration of rural towns and villages. There is demand for housing in rural towns particularly for housing that is affordable in terms of market price for owner occupation and private rental.Resettlement of populations in the core of towns and villages is needed for their sustainable development.Outgoing Mayor Michael Sheahan said that derelict properties would be brought back into use, primarily as housing in the five locations.“This will help rejuvenate the centres of these towns and villages, which have been in decline over the past decade or so,” he explained.Community Development Director Gordon Daly said the funding was a major boost in the council’s battle against dereliction and efforts to harness the potential of small towns and villages in County Limerick.“The ability to work from home, improving broadband and greater awareness of the social and economic benefits of living in small towns and villages means there is an increasing demand for housing in these areas.“This project will aim to match supply to this demand and at affordable prices,” he added.Over the past 18 months, the council has commenced the compulsorily purchase of 56 derelict properties using its powers under the Derelict Sites Act 1990, with many of these now acquired by the council.The Rural Regeneration and Development Fund is a commitment by the government to invest €1 billion in rural Ireland between 2019 and 2027.The purpose of the fund is to support job creation, address de-population of rural communities and support improvements in towns and villages with a population of less than 10,000, and outlying areas.Limerick projects funded previously include: Great Southern Greenway Limerick, Glenbrohane Local Hub, Murroe Community Hub, International Mountain Biking Project in Ballyhoura.
