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. 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. Diageo (LSE: DGE) is a British multinational alcoholic beverages company with offices in six continents around the world. Formed in 1997 as a result of a merger between Guinness Brewery and Grand Metropolitan, some of Diageo’s brands now include Baileys, Guinness, Crown Royal, Johnnie Walker and Smirnoff. Its products are sold in more than 180 countries around the world, cementing the firm as one of the most trusted and respected consumer products companies in the world.The North American region is Diageo’s largest market in terms of net sales, but it is worth noting that operating profits have increased by 44% in Africa, 24% in Asia Pacific, and 19% in Latin America from 2018 to 2019, which demonstrates the ability of the company to infiltrate into the markets of many emerging economies where there is high demand.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…Since flotation on the London Stock Exchange in 1995, the stock has delivered around a 587% return in price appreciation alone, never mind with dividends factored in! Over the years, Diageo’s growth has been immense and continuous, as any price chart will demonstrate. Taking a closer look, over the past five years the share price increased by 62%, demonstrating both historic and recent strong performance. However, can the company continue with this rate of growth into the future?Despite Diageo’s recent announcement that annual sales growth would be at the low end of its guidance, the financial services company Kepler Cheuvreux announced a price target of 3,700p for the company in early February, demonstrating that the future looks bright when it comes to the prospect of further growth in Diageo’s share price.In addition to this, Diageo has shown innovation throughout its product ranges. From the traditional beer, wine and soft drink sales, Diageo has expanded to take advantage of further consumer trends.It is well worth noting that since reaching an all-time high in September of last year, shares in the company are now around 15% lower in value than they were then, meaning that now is a good time to buy for a comparatively lower price.Moreover, a lower share price means a higher dividend yield, which can be reinvested back into the market. Diageo has a proven track record at delivering, and this is displayed through the 0.94% increase in revenues from 2017 to 2018, and an even greater 5.8% increase from 2018 to 2019.Diageo remains a global leader in the industry and delivers reliably good returns for shareholders on the money it invests and with. What is more, as a consumer staple, the defensive nature of Diageo shares means that they should prove steady in any economic volatility, and in my opinion, ultimately proves to be a strong buy for 2020 and beyond continuing with great prospects of further growth.

Let’s wait and see what the Kline family has planned for the Errol golf course. I think the Kline family has a vision that will benefit the residents of Errol. Person Robert McIntyre Very sad. That is unfortunately a terrible idea. This is a golf course with homes alongside it and that would absolutely ruin their property values.

In 2017, the New Errol project was voted “The Biggest story of 2017” by readers of The Apopka Voice.In a brief statement on its Facebook page over the weekend, New Errol/Signature H said goodbye to Apopka and the Errol residents:“Signature H Property Group, the Estate of Larry Klein and 5th Hole Investments have agreed to settle all matters between them. Signature H Property Group will no longer redevelop the Errol Estate golf course and country club in Apopka.5th Hole Investments will remain the sole owner of the property. Any inquiries related to the property should be directed to 5th Hole Investments. This Facebook page will no longer be maintained.” Apopka City Commissioners Doug Bankson and Kyle Becker were the only members on the City Council that oversaw the project for the City from start to finish. Both were disappointed at the outcome.“The recent events with the Errol project are a disappointment I know, especially to the citizens that call Errol home,” said Bankson. “Too much stirring can ruin the stew, so I would say let’s wait to hear the whole of the story and the other possibilities that may arise. I would be very interested to hear what the Klein family has to say. Errol is an Apopka gem, and I am supportive of anything that will result in the restoration of the dream of a first-class course and amenities. The residents of Errol deserve it, and we would all benefit from it.”It’s an unfortunate turn of events,” said Becker. “During our public hearings on this development, I voiced my concerns about its feasibility but genuinely wanted to see this come to fruition as it could have been a tremendous asset for Errol and Apopka.  I feel for the residents of Errol Estate who just want the best version of the community they love.  Hopefully, the current owners of the land work to ensure an amenable outcome with Errol residents.”Former Errol Golf Course Superintendent Jimmy Dutcher feels for the Errol residents but also sees it as a loss for the Central Florida golf industry.“As the last course superintendent and someone who worked to help make the project happen this saddens me. You all can only hope someone will come in and build houses on the vacant course. Sad day for us that make our living in golf as another course in central Florida is gone for good.

House In Sobral / Nelson Resende

first_imgSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG+ 32 Share Projects Photographs:  Fernando Guerra | FG+SGText description provided by the architects. The construction area, occupied before with a house, several support structures, a porch and a upland, keeps an old wall, made of stone, that subdivides it in two platforms, being one of them perfectly on level, in the interior of the field, and being the other one ramped into the street. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThis two platforms insinuate also the existence of a withdrawn area from the surroundings and the street, and a nearest area which maintains a highest proximity with the street. The proposal is the result of the maintenance of the referred wall in stone as a regulator element of two distinct realities, proposing also an object that revalues this dichotomy and defends it. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe house is located somewhere upside the wall, allowing a semi-suspension relationship that values a certain duality between the creation of a very regular/rational image into the street and simultaneously a very arbitrary image into the other side of the field. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIt allows also a kind of linear functional distribution, solving functional spaces into the backyard, in East side and bringing the main permanence spaces into the street, in Oest. It expands the visual connection between the rooms and living or dinner rooms with the landscape and controls the physical and visual connection of the rest of the spaces with the private exterior areas, in East. Save this picture!It solves the parking areas under the suspended constructed volume at the same time that offers a more privacy connection between the different interior areas with the balcony and mainly with the surroundings. It looks to achieve, mainly, a correct location that simplifies and offers a better distributive connection with the physical particularities of the intervention site plan.Project gallerySee allShow lessAlbi Major Theatre / Dominique Perrault ArchitectureArticlesArchitect Álvaro Siza Lecture at the CCAArticles Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/226388/house-in-sobral-nelson-resende Clipboard Architects: Nelson Resende Area Area of this architecture project House In Sobral / Nelson Resende 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/226388/house-in-sobral-nelson-resende Clipboard CopyHouses•Portugal Area:  238 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Portugal Year:  “COPY” ArchDaily House In Sobral / Nelson ResendeSave this projectSaveHouse In Sobral / Nelson Resende “COPY” CopyAbout this officeNelson ResendeOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on April 16, 2012Cite: “House In Sobral / Nelson Resende” 16 Apr 2012.

Take Action Resources Helping Fight 2015 Weeds

first_img Take Action Resources Helping Fight 2015 Weeds Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Grain Crop Prospects Continue to FadeNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Seib on weedsIn Indiana we hear a lot about the toll the weather has taken on crops in 2015, but in a little pocket in the southwest corner of the state there are a few farmers who count themselves very blessed. Mark Seib is one of those near Poseyville in Posey County.“We’re pretty blessed to be in a little pocket, and it is a little pocket in this corner of the state where the corn conditions are looking really well,” he told HAT. “We’ve got corn going through pollination right now. We’ve got soybeans that are growing. They’re a little behind but not too far behind the norm.”But in the very same county water from the Wabash and Ohio rivers has consumed some of the bottom ground and he said the Ohio is coming back up and will likely take more ground. With all of the rain weeds are growing strong and Seib is dealing primarily with marestail.“We’re running into a situation where the glyphosate resistant weeds are showing themselves pretty strongly this year. Marestail is one of the biggest on our farm and it is out in full force. We’re having to go through and make sure that we use herbicides that are not in the same family and be able to use those in fields to take out those resistant weeds.”Eighty-six percent of U.S. farmers believe there are resistant weeds on their farm, so herbicide resistant weeds are a national issue costing farmers time and profitability. Seib, a United Soybean Board Director has been involved in the one-year old Take Action program to help farmers manage herbicide resistance.“USB has provided charts and some different things on how chemical makeups are and what families they’re in, and we’re using those charts to go through and look at what weed and chemical comparisons we need to be using on spraying to make sure that we take those resistant weeds out.”USB is one of the partners key to establishing Take Action, and the industry-wide partnership includes 16 universities.

China Unlikely to Retaliate on Soybeans?

first_img SHARE China Unlikely to Retaliate on Soybeans?Bob UtterbackLots more hand wringing is going on this week about the possibility that China will retaliate against the U.S. trade tariffs by cutting soybean purchases. But, so far, there is no indication from Beijing that is going to happen, and some analysts say it will not. The American Soybean Association sent a letter to the White House this week warning of the consequences that would occur if China cuts purchases of U.S. soybeans in response to demand by the U.S. to reduce the trade deficit. However, noted market analyst Bob Utterback does not see that happening, “China has a tough choice to make whether they want to continue to dump their excess steel into the U.S. or cut off imports of soybeans. They need the soybeans a lot more than they need to dump the steel to feed their growing livestock sector.” Thus, Utterback does not expect retaliation against soybeans. The USDA estimates there are 700 million pigs in China who are fed primarily with U.S. soybeans.Mike SilverMike Silver, with Kokomo Grain, agrees saying the Chinese need U.S. grain too badly, “It would not surprise me to see the Chinese talk it up; but, in the end, I don’t think it is anything for us to worry about.” Silver sees this as a bargaining chip by the Trump White House to force China to address the massive trade surplus they have with the U.S.Overall, Utterback feels the U.S. livestock sector is more at risk of retaliation, “China would be more likely to retaliate against processed and packaged products like pork and beef. We are already seeing weakness in the pork market anticipating a decline in demand.” He supports the Trump approach on trade and feels it will be good for American agriculture in the long run, “We are going to have some bumps along the way; but, in the long run, it will be positive.” He urges producers to be ready for volatility and protect themselves against big market swings, “Sell the summer highs, and buy the harvest lows.”Several other analysts HAT talked with this week concur and do not see this as a major market factor at this time. Yet, the news media continues to predict a world-ending calamity for U.S. farmers. “Fears ripple through the U.S. heartland that agriculture could take hit from China trade retaliation,” said CNBC. On Thursday, soybean futures prices rallied as reports of lower South American production surfaced.

Arrested on 18 June 2014 at Manama airport, he is charged with inciting anti-government hatred and using expressions liable to incite sectarianism.The appeal of Ali Al-Mearaj, a blogger held since 6 January 2014, is due to be heard on 1 December. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison on 8 April 2014 on charges of “misusing information technology” and insulting the king in connection with his management of an opposition website.Bahrain is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. News Follow the news on Bahrain October 14, 2020 Find out more News A Bahraini criminal court has sentenced freelance photographer Sayed Ahmed Al Mousawi to 10 years in prison on a terrorism charge and has stripped him of his nationality. Reporters Without Borders condemns this arbitrary trial of a journalist who just covered pro-democracy demonstrations. March 17, 2021 Find out more Accused of giving SIM cards to “terrorist” demonstrators and taking photos of anti-government protests, Mousawi was finally convicted two days ago in a trial that began nearly a year ago and had repeatedly been postponed since February. His lawyer said he would appeal against his conviction.“The threats and intimidation campaigns against professional journalists and citizen journalists have just one aim – to use ‘terrorism’ as a pretext for suppressing all criticism of an authoritarian regime,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Middle East desk.“It is outrageous that a journalist has been treated like a terrorist. Arbitrary arrests of peaceful dissidents, systematic torture and impunity have turned Bahrain into a dangerous country for those who speak out. We condemn Mousawi’s arbitrary detention and call on the authorities to overturn his conviction.”Many Bahrainis have been stripped of their citizenship this year. Those targeted include not only government opponents and Islamic State members but also doctors and journalists.The recipient of many international awards, Mousawi was arrested without a warrant at his home in the town of Diraz on 10 February 2014, when police confiscated his camera and other electronic apparatus.His trial did not begin until December 2014 and, according to his family, he was repeatedly tortured in detention, especially during interrogation at the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department.A total of eight journalists and five citizen-journalists are currently detained in Bahrain, according to a Reporters Without Borders tally.
