This FTSE 250 stock is rising. Should I buy?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” FTSE 250 stock Premier Foods (LSE: PFD) has been having a good run lately. It’s up over 15% in one month and has increased 140% during the last 12 months.So have I missed the boat with this business? I don’t think so. In fact, I think things are just getting started for Premier Foods, so I’d buy. Last week, the company released its full-year results, and let me say, they were impressive.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…Premier Foods: an overviewPremier Foods makes brands most Britons will have heard of. These include Mr Kipling cakes, Ambrosia custard, and Angel Delight whipped dessert.The company has enjoyed a revival during the pandemic, especially after years of ballooning debt, falling sales and a problematic pension deficit. But a rise in dining at home during the coronavirus crisis seems to have saved the day.Total full-year revenue increased 10.3% to £934.2m. Operating profit also rose by 11.9% to £148.3m. These were large rises, which was good news for the company. It certainly helped that the business remained fully operational throughout Covid-19.But it wasn’t only boosted by the pandemic. The company really ramped up activity last year. It launched a series of new product ranges, including healthy options. It also increased marketing investment with six major brands receiving TV advertising. And the hard work seemed to pay off.Even net debt was reduced by 22.6%, from £429.6m down to £332.7m. I find it encouraging that Premier Foods has managed to reduce its leverage. Hopefully, the business can thrive from a stronger financial position.DividendBut I think the icing on the cake (no pun intended) has to be the the news about its dividend. It managed to reinstate its income payment after 13 years. I reckon this is a turning point for the FTSE 250 stock and the share price could rise further.To me, it highlights a few things. The first is that it can afford to pay a final dividend of 1p per share. The second is that now it’s paying income to shareholders, they will expect this to continue.Clearly, the board thinks that the company will be able to pay this in the future. If not, I assume it would have stated that it was only a special or one-off income payment. This makes me optimistic about the prospects for the firm.RisksOf course Premier Foods does carry investment risk. As it’s a food producer, it has to grapple with the cost of raw materials. A rise here could impact profitability.Although, the FTSE 250 company has been a winner during the pandemic, there’s no guarantee consumers will eat at home quite so often now they can once again eat out. This could hit revenue. And the company will also have to work hard to keep up with consumer tastes, which have been evolving in new directions.OutlookYet I think the future looks bright for Premier Foods. It goes into the new financial year in a stronger position, having gained a large consumer base during the past year. So far trading has been in line with expectations and I reckon more good things are still to come. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

London Welsh Amateurs – Team of the Month (March 2011 issue)

first_imgDecember’s Team of the MonthCharles and Camila weren’t the only ones to be put out by student demonstrations in the English capital – London Welsh Amateurs almost lost a match because of them! Coach Ian Horgan got stuck in traffic at Westminster and only delivered the team kit minutes before kick-off against table toppers HAC.“We did a joke stretch, then ran on the pitch,” explains loosehead/skipper Stephen Roberts. “Our minds were still in the changing room in the first half and we went in 20-3 down. But we had nothing to lose and so started to run everything – and the space opened up.”Centre Tom Hughes, 18, scored two tries as Welsh rallied exhilaratingly to win 21-20, part of a nine-match winning run that put the team in the melting pot for promotion from Herts/Middlesex One – in their very first season since leaving the Surrey merit tables.It’s reward for an adventurous approach – ‘keep the ball until you score’ is their motto – and the fantastic camaraderie in a side that has been together for a dozen years. “We’ve been to each other’s engagements, weddings and divorces!” quips Roberts, 35.Hughes, picked by Welsh Exiles U18s, athletic lock Duncan Jones, immovable tighthead Jonny Graham and sniping scrum-half Rhodri Mogford form the spine of a team that is grateful for the support of the London Welsh pros at their weekly training session. “There’s no ‘them and us’ culture here and players like Gordon Ross like to pop down to assist,” Roberts says.

World Cup players return to Edinburgh squad

first_imgAUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – OCTOBER 01: Allan Jacobsen of Scotland looks on during the IRB 2011 Rugby World Cup Pool B match between England and Scotland at Eden Park on October 1, 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand. (Photo by Hannah Johnston/Getty Images) Speaking after his first training session back with the club, centre Nick de Luca said: “It’s been great to see some of the youngsters stepping up and making waves at the club while we’ve been away. Hopefully we can come back, add to that and help move them and the club forward by bringing our skills and strengths.“I love playing for Edinburgh Rugby but personally it’s vital for me to get off to a new start with a coach who is new to me. I plan to do that by putting my best foot forward in training and playing, and hopefully becoming a favourite of Michael Bradley’s as I look to push my way in there and keep the jersey.” Allan Jacobsen heads back to Edinburgh after being with the Scotland squad in New ZealandEdinburgh Rugby were today boosted by the return of eight international players from the Rugby World Cup ahead of the side’s match against European champions Leinster at Murrayfield a week on Friday (28 October, kick-off 7.35pm).With seven players on Scotland duty and one with the Fiji squad, the capital club welcomes the return of three backs and five forwards sharing over 300 caps.Among the internationalists are Scotland’s most capped player and record point’s scorer, Chris Paterson, British & Irish Lions scrum-half Mike Blair, and the complete front-row that started the nation’s matches against Romania and Argentina: Allan Jacobsen, Geoff Cross and British & Irish Lions hooker Ross Ford, who reached a half century of caps during the championship.Speaking after today’s training session, Edinburgh Rugby head coach Michael Bradley, paid tribute to the young players who have stepped up to the mark in the black and red jersey before welcoming the returning internationalists.He said: “During the World Cup a lot of our young players had a lot of game time and they’ll park that experience and learn from it. It’s important for the coaches to see how these players handle pressured environments and, by and large, all of them came through very well, which is very good for Edinburgh Rugby going forward. “We’re now moving into a very exciting second period of the season and we’ve welcomed the national team boys back into the squad. They’re experienced, quality, international players so we expect them to take leadership roles in the squad – that will be one of their challenges in the next two RaboDirect PRO12 matches leading into the Heineken Cup.“Our first match is at home against Leinster and the World Cup players will undoubtedly come into contention for selection as we can’t ignore their quality but these next two weeks will be a test for them to see how they integrate into the squad.”The returning Scots contingent is completed by open-side flanker Ross Rennie and centre Nick de Luca while back-row Netani Talei returns from the Fiji camp.

The New Urbanism and the church

first_img Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Pittsburgh, PA [Episcopal News Service] In my position at Bexley Hall, I teach theology, ethics and liturgics. I also teach a class on The New Urbanism and urban design. When I talk with people about what I do, it is that last area that elicits the most quizzical looks; occasionally someone will be bold enough to ask what it has to do with the church.It’s a good question.The New Urbanism is a movement in urban planning which emphasizes developing and rehabilitating walkable, human-scaled neighborhoods. Some of the principles that its proponents value include mixed-use zoning (so homes, shops and schools can all be close to each other, rather than requiring a car); greater public transportation where practicable; more and better shared spaces in parks, plazas, sidewalks and the like; neighborhoods designed so that people of various ages, physical abilities and financial resources might live in and enjoy them; and working to develop cities and suburbs that are greener, more livable and sustainable. It might seem appealing, but the church’s role might not be obvious.As I said, it’s a good question – sometimes I even find myself wondering. And then I remember Raquel Nelson.April 10, 2010, Ms. Nelson, a 30-year old mom of three, was walking home with her children after getting off the bus. They had been shopping earlier and ate pizza to celebrate 4-year-old A.J.’s birthday, which was the next day. At Wal-Mart, Ms. Nelson bought her son a goldfish as a present. But on their way back, they missed their bus and had to wait for the next one. They were an hour late coming home, and it was getting dark.Night had fallen by the time the Cobb County Bus dropped the family off directly across from their home in the Somerpoint Apartments. The bus stop is in the middle of the block, and four lanes of highway and a concrete median strip with a turning lane separated them from home. In order to use the cross walk, the tired family needed to walk three-tenths of a mile in one direction to get to the intersection, and three-tenths of a mile back to their apartment. In other words, they would have had to walk more than half a mile to get to their home, which they could see from the bus stop.Along with most of the other bus riders dropped off at the time, they made the fateful decision to cross in the middle of the street. They crossed the first two lanes and waited in the median. One girl ran out into the street, and A.J. ran out after her. The boy was hit by a passing van, which left the scene of the accident; he died of his injuries later at the hospital.The driver was found and arrested. He admitted hitting the child, as well as drinking alcohol earlier that day and using prescription pain killers. The court sentenced him to six months in prison, and he was released the following October. Ms. Nelson was convicted of reckless conduct, improperly crossing a roadway, and second-degree vehicular homicide. She faced up to 36 months in prison.No, that is not a misprint.Raquel Nelson lost her four-year-old son in a traffic accident and was set to be sent to prison for what was, in effect, the crime of being a pedestrian. The court, in the event, gave her probation.There are issues of justice involved here, but this is primarily an issue of design: we have designed our cities and towns around cars and not around people. We have made it dangerous to be pedestrians like Raquel Nelson and her children, and this danger holds for all those who physically cannot drive, those who cannot afford to drive, and those who don’t care to drive. Since our decision to become a car-based culture following World War II, we have consistently changed our built environment to cater to cars, particularly to enable them to go faster, with wider lanes, faster speed limits, and fewer stops. In rural areas this is eminently appropriate, but we have done so in densely populated areas as well. As speeds rise, fatality rates skyrocket: 5% of pedestrians hit by a car going 20 mph die; at 40 mph, the fatality rate jumps to 83%.We need leaders who are aware of and can advocate for policies that foster walkable, sustainable neighborhoods, and who can teach this way of thinking to others. That’s what it has to do with the church.The New Urbanism is not everything: it is not the Kingdom of God come in its fullness. But issues of humane urban design, including pedestrian safety, public transit, walkability, livability, sustainability, even attractive and charming places to live and visit, ought to be the concern of all those who take seriously Jesus’ commands to love our neighbor, the stranger, and even our enemy. This is one more way that the church can learn to see, love and serve well the place to which God calls us.— The Rev. Dr. Jason Fout is assistant professor of Anglican theology at Bexley Hall in Columbus, Ohio.

The Marks of Mission are pretty broad,” said Anglican Video senior producer Lisa Barry, who has also worked with the team on projects such as the “Amazing Grace” video project that raised funds for the Council of the North.Canadian Anglicans are living out the Marks of Missions in a myriad of creative ways, said Barry. The Champion project is intended not only to support those efforts financially but to help share their stories with other Anglicans across the country.Descriptions of the projects will be posted on the national church’s website. “We’re hoping that it seeds the imagination and inspires others to also do projects,” Barry said.

Menerung House / Seshan Design Sdn Bhd

first_imgArchDaily Year:  Save this picture!© Rupajiwa StudioThe top floor is conceived as an independent stand alone apartment of apprx 1000sqft with its own direct access. It can be used as a two bedroom apartment or as an office. This top floor is currently used as Andy’s “man cave”. Its a chill out area with a pool table and  nook as his private study / office. We currently only erected partitions to have  a single proper room on this floor  which caters as their official guest roomThe rear portion of the 1st floor is also a flexible space that can be kept as a large open area or be divided up to 4 bedrooms. The bathrooms are strategically located with multiple access doors to allow for flexible space allocation. Electrical and air-con services along with the faceplates are all surface mounted to allow for future relocation. The walls to create the rooms in these flexible spaces are dry wall partitons.Save this picture!© Rupajiwa StudioThe idea is that you can configure the spaces to your need with minimal dry works with no hacking whatsoever. The same principle applies to the rooms at the top floor. Currently, the client requested for a single bedroom at the top floor and 2 bedrooms and a tv room at the 1st floor.This project took longer than most in the same range as we had a tight budget to keep to thus we had to work harder to be more innovative with design and building solutions. Also, the client was heavily involved in  the design and building process and a lot of decisions were evolved on site:  a “build-first-and-see-then-we-decide” kind of thing!  The involvement and working relationship with the client was amazing – the design was a collaborative brainstorming effort between the client, ourselves and the contractor.  It was not restrictive in any way, though the client did have some executive quirky decisions which we gave it to  as we had some of our own  to insist on as well!  So there was some negotiations involved! – we gave in to some things they wanted but she in return she had to give in to some of ours!Save this picture!© Rupajiwa StudioThis made it very interesting as the end product was not totally pre-conceived and had surprising outcomes.From our engagement to commencement of work on site was fairly quick – within 4 months but the construction works on site till completion took about 12 months.Save this picture!Floor PlanOur climatic response for all our houses are similar – to be as passive as possible. We try to maximise as much natural lighting and ventilation as possible.  The house is designed not to have airconditioning but of course aircons are provided for in all the bedrooms and the living area. The double volume dining/bar space is not airconditioned at all.   The cross ventalition and the fan feature above is sufficient to create a pleasant environment in this double volume space.Cross ventalition is catered for in all spaces by means of having at least one panel of adjustable louvred glass windows. This enables air flow even during rainy days.Save this picture!© Rupajiwa StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessAustralian Institute of Architects Announce 2014 National AwardsArchitecture NewsVideo: Bjarke Ingels on the Power of ArchitectureVideos Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/563063/menerung-house-seshan-design-sdn-bhd Clipboard Area:  5000 ft² Area:  5000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Malaysia Photographs Save this picture!© Rupajiwa Studio+ 35 Share Menerung House / Seshan Design Sdn BhdSave this projectSaveMenerung House / Seshan Design Sdn Bhd CopyAbout this officeSeshan Design Sdn BhdOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKuala LumpurHousesMalaysiaPublished on November 05, 2014Cite: “Menerung House / Seshan Design Sdn Bhd” 05 Nov 2014.

A major two and a half storey renovation job for an English expatriate couple with a child.   Apprx 5000sqft + built up. This house is “future proofed” and built for flexibility as the clients may rent it out in the future.The house was a end-lot link house, so of course we had to be careful dealing with the party wall and adjoining neighbour.  What’s really nice about this site was it opened up into a sloped jungle and thus the house had a view of amazing greenery to look into!  The downside of this was of course mosquitoes! So every window and large openings were netted.Save this picture!SectionWe retained about a third of the existing structure where we could to minimise cost but at the same time we consiously kept some bits and pieces and features of the existing house which both we and the client like to add character to the house. Makes for amazing conversation pieces! Even an old cast iron soil pipe at the entrance (no longer in use of course!) was kept!A lot of architects we know shy away from renovation projects as its too much hassle with too many surprises to deal with when you actually start renovating. We actually find it quite exciting and its an interesting process to work around what’s already there and how to put them to use. For example, in the master bath and masterbedroom there were 2 structural columns we did not expect that was too messy and costly to relocate so we dressed them up partially and used them as clothes hangers! Which turned out quite well!Save this picture!© Rupajiwa StudioThe raw and industrial nature of the house was purely intentional-to save cost on finishes! Even the pool was just cement rendered. The strategy is that the clients could always tile the pool later or cover the floors with vinyl or timber flooring in the future if they had more money to spend or if a future tenant insisted on it.    Of course, the clients who owned some converted warehouse properties in the UK also had a affinity for industrial and raw finishes.   This “industrial look” of the house also enabled us to reuse of lot of existing elements from the existing house, like how we re-used the old windown and door grills as staircase balustrading.  When we were building this house, our contractor was also doing some renovation works on other houses. Since this house had the biggest land area, we used it as a warehouse of sorts – so salvaged parts from other houses were brought here and we also used some of them in the house! For example, the master bed frame was actually  made from salvaged grills from other houses! “COPY”last_img read more

This led to a threshold bar for the petitioner.Earmarking the cases as “Certificate Cases”, the court noted,The object is to obtain certificate of dismissal from the Supreme Court to put a quietus to the issue, and thus, say that nothing could be done because the highest Court has dismissed the appeal. It is an endeavour to complete formality to save the skin of the officers who may be at default in such process to be followed in time. We are not willing to countenance this anymore.It has been stated that a reading of the application for condonation of delay shows that the proposal to file the SLP was submitted on May 2, 2019 and it was forwarded from the officer of the Deputy Legal Advisor, NCB headquarters to the Ministry on July 2019 – after two and a half months. On 26th September, 2019 the Kolkata Zone submitted the draft SLP and additional documents to the NCB headquarters, the vetted SLP was received in Central Agency Section only on 22.11.2019 i.e. after about two months. “We have no doubt that officers have been grossly negligent in conduct of the legal affairs of the department”, the Court said.Thus, stating that it was not only in the instant case that cases were coming before the court from different Government agencies after inordinate delay, the Court observed that it showed complete inefficiency in administration of their legal departments.”That the same should happen to the legal department of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) reflects an even sadder situation”- Supreme CourtIn this backdrop, the court has observed that it had recently dealt with this issue in a recent order passed on October 15, 2020 in the case of State of Madhya Pradesh V. Bheru Lal, wherein it noted that “pedantic excuses are no more admissible in view of the technology which is now assisting Government agencies”.”In an order recently passed in S.L.P. (Civil)Diary No.9217 of 2020 – State of Madhya Pradesh v. Bheru Lal dated 15th October, 2020, we have dealt with this approach and have observed that these pedantic excuses are no more admissible in view of the technology which is now assisting even the Government agencies and have referred to the judgment of this Court in the case of Office of the Chief Post Master General & Ors. v. Living Media India Ltd. & Anr. (2012) 3 SCC 563. Eight years have passed since that judgment, but still any counsel as advanced in that judgment seems unheeded”- Supreme Court Cause Title: Govt. of India Ministry of Home Affairs Narcotic Control Bureau V.

Retrieval of NO2vertical profiles from ground-based UV-visible measurements: Method and validation

first_imgVertical profiles of NO2 are retrieved from ground-based UV-visible slant columns by sequential estimation, using a forward model that consists of a stacked box photochemical model and a radiative transfer model. The retrieval method is characterized, and a rigorous error analysis is presented. The vertical resolution of the retrieved profiles is shown to vary from 5 to 10 km, depending on the retrieval altitude. The retrieved profiles are found to be moderately sensitive to the assumed vertical profiles of ozone and aerosol, to the range of solar zenith angles of the observations, and to the error in the slant column. However, in the altitude range 10 to 35 km they are relatively insensitive to a priori information and agreed well with profiles from simultaneous balloon-borne measurementslast_img read more
