The stock market’s been taking a hit as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, despite yesterday’s partial recovery. For investors, especially for those getting started in investing for the long term, a market drop can be a great opportunity to take advantage of price levels not seen in years. Today I’d like to discuss why I’d still continue to buy into London Stock Exchange shares and emphasise two that may be worth your attention if you’re ready to invest now.The LSE is importantFirst a bit of terminology for those who are just getting started. The London Stock Exchange (LSE) is the primary exchange in the UK and the largest in Europe. 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 most famous index in the UK is the FTSE 100. Most companies it contains are multinational conglomerates. The components of the index are reviewed quarterly.The FTSE 250 index consists of the 101st to the 350th largest companies listed on the LSE. Companies in it usually have a more domestic focus so they’re more directly affected by shorter-term developments in the UK economy. Market crashes can be unnerving. But eventually stock prices stabilise and good companies begin to grow their earnings again. Therefore, I think that investing, and staying invested, in robust LSE shares makes sense even during the current market volatility.MondiPaper and packaging group Mondi (LSE: MNDI) has operations across more than 30 countries and multiple industries. This LSE member manages forests, produces pulp, paper and plastic films. And it offers industrial and consumer packaging solutions worldwide.The company also finds itself in a strong position to help customers “transition to more sustainable packaging — paper where possible, plastic when useful”.Year-to-date, MNDI shares are down over 25%. Yet I’m ready to suggest that the growth in e-commerce, especially during this lockdown period globally, will likely benefit the business of the FTSE 100 constituent in the coming months.In late February, the group released full-year results for the year to December 2019. Mainly due to weaker paper prices, it delivered flat earnings. However, management offered a brighter outlook with price stability ahead.Chief executive Andrew King highlighted a “solid operational performance, strong cost control and a good contribution from acquisitions and capital investment projects”. At present, the business provides investors with a robust 6.5% dividend yield and the stock is expected to go ex-dividend in early April. Moneysupermarket.comPrice comparison specialist Moneysupermarket.com (LSE: MONY) is part of the FTSE 250 index. Its website markets financial products such as insurance, credit cards, loans, mortgages, and utilities. Consumers can also monitor their credit scores online.We’re facing a complete lockdown in the foreseeable future. So I’d expect a good number Britons to spend more time on comparison shopping for financial products. After all, we’re looking for ways to make good use of our time at home.And given the economic uncertainty faced not only by countries, but also understandably by households, many consumers would like to save money. That applies whether they’re looking to buy insurance, change energy providers, or tap a new line of credit with a credit card or loan. In 2020, MONY shares are down about 24%. Yet the falling share price of this LSE member now means a an enticing dividend yield of 4.7%. Its ex-dividend date of 2 April is coming up.last_img read more

Spiral House / Powerhouse Company

Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauRecommended ProductsRenders / 3D AnimationAUGmentectureAugmented Reality Platform – AUGmentecture™DoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesAs opposed to the existing house, an old Burgundy farm, the new wing is dedicated to host their guest and visitors. With a large living room and a series of guest rooms the extension is not only an invitation into their home but also a picturesque experience of the surrounding landscape offered to their visitors. Set in the middle of a generous property of 13.000m2, crossed by a small river and planted of a wide variety of old ornamental trees, the Spiral House enjoys the sweet and pastoral charm of the landscape of Burgundy. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauA loop into the landscape Despite its traditional architecture the existing house was struggling to inhabit and occupy the share size of the park. By contrast the Spiral House expands freely in the garden seeking to create as many experiences of the garden as possible. In a gentle swing from the ground floor to the roof level it creates a surprising variety of spaces that blurs the boundaries between the house and the garden where the architecture and the landscape merge together. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauWrapping the house around a planted patio the Spiral House reminds the “Clos”: the walls enclosing the famous vineyards of the region. In the Spiral House this “Clos” is transformed into an inviting gesture, the peripheral wall is transformed to create a spiral: a continuous invitation from outside to inside, a continuous movement from the entrance to the more intimate rooms of the house. The patio, the covered terrace and the panoramic views connect the house with the garden and invite the guests to unwind and enjoy the garden’s life.More than a house, the Spiral House is a pleasurable and sheltered promenade in the landscape to its guests. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauOpen and intimate With its abstract and sculptural volume the Spiral House escapes any pre-set style and dialogues spontaneously with the old house and the garden. Its geometry grew from the internal organisation of the house and the particular wishes of the client such as large and open rooms with high ceilings on the ground floor for the living room and the library, and smaller and intimate spaces for two guest suites. It also includes a multi-purpose dorm/playroom for the the kids and their friends. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauTogether with the existing house, the Spiral House describes a programmatic loop and additionally creates a patio in the centre of the house. All the rooms are distributed around this patio along gentle stairs that rises gradually from ground floor to first floor. Visitors enter the extension by the patio and are thus welcomed in the heart of the house. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauThe architecture of the Spiral House is focused on the distribution of openness and the intimacy of space. The fully glazed patio floods the house with sunlight and create a great openness without compromising its intimacy. The external façades are perforated with windows varying in size and proportions and framing selected views on the garden to create a particular atmosphere in each room. It is a continuous space of soft transitions from public to private. The rooms functions as a successions of mezzanines that can be closed or opened, providing the guest with a subtle feeling of participating in the life of the house. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauElegant and adaptable Powerhouse Company’s design approach allowed the Spiral House to be build with a conventional budget for a mid range single family house. Priority is given to quality of the spaces, of light exposures and view rather than the expenses in materials. That means that a large part of the budget was invested in the structure to realize the complex geometry and achieve a surprising diversity of spaces with only 200m2 of floor area. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauThe clients specifically wished for a design that would permit them to supervise the entire construction of the house themselves. The Spiral House is built with a wooden structure, a system that creates a high degree of flexibility and adaptability. This made it relatively easy to adapt the complex geometry on site and further reduce the budget risks during the building phase. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauIn terms of materialization, the sculptural dimension of the volume is balanced with minimalist materials and details for the façade, giving it an elegant touch. The hidden window frames reduce the number of visible details on the façade. Additionally, the smooth plaster on the exterior walls contains subtle golden glitter-shine that playfully captures the light.Save this picture!ElevationProject gallerySee allShow lessKamyk Heritage Park / Tamizo ArchitectsArticlesBaton Rouge Downtown Library by Trahan Architects, updateArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/39155/spiral-house-powerhouse-company Clipboard France Projects Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•France Architects: Powerhouse Company Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/39155/spiral-house-powerhouse-company Clipboard Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officePowerhouse CompanyOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesFrancePublished on October 30, 2009Cite: “Spiral House / Powerhouse Company” 30 Oct 2009.

7 fundraising events supporting good causes

first_img  277 total views,  1 views today Nisa Miles ChallengeA new year workplace challenge to help motivate colleagues into getting active in 2019 has turned into a fundraiser that has already raised in excess of £4,000 for charity. The Nisa Miles Challenge was launched in January to encourage staff to be healthier and walk, run or jog their way through the first month of the year to hit a target of 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles. Almost 90 colleagues entered the event and at the end of January well over 4,000 miles have been recorded. The challenge has now been extended into a Quarter 1 challenge with more colleagues joining in and others setting themselves new target, with Nisa’s charity Making a Difference Locally pledging to match miles with money and donate £1 per mile to Alzheimer’s Society. Here is a round up of events that have taken place recently or are set to take place later this year, all supporting good causes. Mackie’s of Scotland & Muscular Dystrophy UKScottish ice cream maker Mackie’s of Scotland coloured its most popular flavour, known as ‘Traditional’, bright orange on Friday 1 February, to raise awareness and money for Muscular Dystrophy UK. Mackie’s 19.2, its Aberdeen ice cream parlour, was a bright vision with orange lighting, balloons and staff dressed in orange T-shirts.  Even the company’s logo was converted to an orange spotted cow for the day. Alongside the orange Traditional ice cream, a parlour cabinet was filled with over 200 orange tubs, each containing one of nine different prizes, from £20 gift vouchers, to chocolate bars, so that customers could take part in a fundraising lucky dip.

Fuller Youth Institute Receives $810,000 in Grants for Innovative Ministry Research

first_img Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday The Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) and Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena are getting additional funding of up to $810,000 for a new wave of research designed to strengthen churches’ youth ministry throughout the U.S.Fuller announced the new grants at its recent Engaging Young People Summit, which gathered key national leaders from 15 denominations and scholars and heads of church training organizations to focus on the challenges and opportunities of ministry to young people. The denominations in attendance represented over 63 percent of the adult Christian population in the United States.The funds are coming from Lilly Endowment Inc., an Indianapolis-based private philanthropic foundation, and the Sacred Harvest Foundation based in Costa Mesa.According to an FYI release, the new research will build on Fuller’s three-year Churches Engaging Young People Project, which studied the best practices of churches that excelled in ministering with young people ages 15 to 29. More than 250 churches were part of the study that included surveys and interviews with 474 young people and 799 adults.With the additional funding, FYI will continue the study on outstanding churches nationwide, and aid the development of a vast toolkit of ministry resources for public release in the fall of 2016.The new funding will also enable Fuller to pursue its Youth Ministry Innovations project that will leverage resources from the Churches Engaging Young People Project to blaze new paths in youth ministry.“While past research and ministry efforts have helped young people journey toward adulthood, there is widespread agreement that new, more mature, and more systemic strategies are needed to help them navigate an increasingly challenging world,” Kara Powell, executive director of the FYI, said. “These projects are poised to help guide today’s young people by weaving together two of our highest values and missional priorities – innovation and collaboration.” Community News Top of the News More Cool Stuff Make a comment Your email address will not be published.

Increasing accuracy: a new design and algorithm for automatically measuring weights, travel direction and radio frequency identification (RFID) of penguins.

first_imgA fully automated weighbridge using a new algorithm and mechanics integrated with a Radio Frequency Identification System is described. It is currently in use collecting data on Macaroni penguins (Eudyptes chrysolophus) at Bird Island, South Georgia. The technology allows researchers to collect very large, highly accurate datasets of both penguin weight and direction of their travel into or out of a breeding colony, providing important contributory information to help understand penguin breeding success, reproductive output and availability of prey. Reliable discrimination between single and multiple penguin crossings is demonstrated. Passive radio frequency tags implanted into penguins allow researchers to match weight and trip direction to individual birds. Low unit and operation costs, low maintenance needs, simple operator requirements and accurate time stamping of every record are all important features of this type of weighbridge, as is its proven ability to operate 24 hours a day throughout a breeding season, regardless of temperature or weather conditions. Users are able to define required levels of accuracy by adjusting filters and raw data are automatically recorded and stored allowing for a range of processing options. This paper presents the underlying principles, design specification and system description, provides evidence of the weighbridge’s accurate performance and demonstrates how its design is a significant improvement on existing systemslast_img read more
