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. Peter Stephens | Sunday, 2nd August, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Even though many UK shares now trade at cheap prices following the stock market crash, it can be difficult to decide which ones to buy.As such, following successful investors such as Warren Buffett could be a sound move. His strategy of purchasing companies with wide economic moats at fair prices has generated high returns over a long period of time.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…Through using a similar approach, you may find it easier to unearth the stocks in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 that can offer the greatest capital return potential.Economic moatsWith the economy’s prospects being weak after the recent stock market crash, buying UK shares that have wide economic moats could be a logical approach. For example, they may have a competitive advantage over their sector peers due to their unique products, strong brand loyalty or more efficient business models that result in higher profitability.Such companies may be better placed to survive the economic challenges that are now likely ahead in the coming months. They may also be better able to gain market share at the expense of their weaker sector peers, and to adapt their business models to suit changing consumer trends brought about by the recent lockdown.Clearly, assessing a company’s economic moat is very subjective. The task may be made even more difficult by the recent stock market crash that has caused high volatility across many sectors. However, Warren Buffett has used the approach with great success in the past, and it has allowed him to identify the most appealing shares within a range of sectors that have gone on to produce impressive returns.Cheap UK shares after a market crashThe best UK shares to buy today may not necessarily be the cheapest stocks available after the market crash. Certainly, some high-quality businesses now offer exceptionally wide margins of safety that could lead to strong capital returns in the coming years. However, investors may find equally attractive opportunities among UK shares that are not necessarily the cheapest on offer at the present time.In some cases, it may be worth paying more for a much better-quality business. Although this may mean that it commands a higher valuation than some of its sector peers, its prospects may be far brighter. As such, its risk/reward opportunity may be more attractive, and it could have the capacity to produce more resilient and greater returns over the long run.Warren Buffett has always focused on price and quality when it comes to determining which stocks to buy. Using this approach after the market crash, in terms of being willing to buy UK shares that are not necessarily the cheapest around, could allow you to purchase the best stocks in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 that deliver the highest returns in the coming years.

One of the more inspirational and influential architects of the twentieth century, John Lautner was revered in the world of architecture and design throughout his sixty-year-long career. Architects like Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry give a substantial amount of credit to Lautner, who influenced their designs and minds as architects. Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadAs is obvious in his architecture and especially in the Schwimmer House, Lautner valued attention to space, materiality and relationship with the natural environment.Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadLautner was very aware of the emotional affects created by dramatic changes of materials themselves or of their orientation and organization. The multiple houses of Lautner fused stone, steel, glass and wood to create flowing spaces that all seem to expand into each other or out into the skies and surrounding natural environment.Save this picture!© Patricia Parinejad”An aesthetic, philosophical and social visionary, Lautner made buildings that continue to amaze architects and patrons alike with their formal variety and freedom, their structural originality and their sculptural force.”Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadNatural light floods into the interior spaces of the residence through light wells and large windows which look out over the green surroundings and cityscape. The use of warm woods and stones also bring nature indoors, fusing the spaces and blurring the lines between indoors and out.Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadAn overwhelming majority of his structures were built in the Los Angeles Area, where the social interest of art, fashion, design and architecture seem to prevail.  Surprisingly enough, even in a city so in tune with creativity and the arts, the buildings of Lautner had until recently only been celebrated widely in the design world alone; not more than a slight portion of the larger population was as informed or knowledgeable about the architect and his works. Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadThe Hammer Museum of UCLA hoped to change this, as they held an exhibition in 2008 featuring photographs of his work, physical models and a biographical video.Save this picture!© Patricia ParinejadProject gallerySee allShow lessKaohsiung Competition Proposal / Ojanen ChiouArticlesGuosen Securities Tower / Massimiliano + Doriana FuksasArticles Share “COPY” United States ArchDaily Photographs Year: center_img Architects: John Lautner Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/89548/ad-classics-schwimmer-house-john-lautner Clipboard 1982 AD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John Lautner AD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John LautnerSave this projectSaveAD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John Lautner Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJohn LautnerOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesBeverly Hills3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on November 17, 2010Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: AD Classics: Schwimmer House / John Lautner” 17 Nov 2010.

IT giant’s revamp takes HR into the Internet age

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. IT giant’s revamp takes HR into the Internet ageOn 8 Aug 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. ICL is pressing ahead with the shake-up of its HR function despite the decision by its parent company to pull out of a flotation at the eleventh hour.The “web enablement project” will drastically cut HR administration by transferring 80 to 90 per cent of HR transactions to staff and line managers to the company intranet. By June 2001, all HR business, except that of a sensitive nature – such as disciplinary procedures – will be on-line.HR director Fiona Colquhoun started revamping HR two years ago to modernise and increase the efficiency of the function before the firm switched focus to e-business services in April and its planned flotation later this year.This latest phase of development, aiming to cut costs further and increase efficiency by automating transactions, started in June.Yvette Coulthard, head of resourcing and HR operations and leader of the worldwide project, said the reorganisation will go ahead despite parent company Fujitsu’s move last week to abandon the planned £5bn flotation.The first phase, which ended last month, saw ICL’s 11,000 UK employees take responsibility for updating personal details and putting together their own flexible benefits packages on-line. “We are trying to improve efficiency by cutting out the middle man,” said Coulthard.Geoff Smith, consultant at William M Mercer, said ICL is one of a small but growing minority of employers hiving off administration through automating or outsourcing.Coulthard said some of the 230 HR jobs could go but, equally, people could be redeployed in more useful roles.

The home has now been let on a long-term lease.Wilfords, who secured close to 150 lets in 2019, with landmark deals, also see a trend for tenants and landlords wanting longer-term commitments with several 24 month tenancies already agreed.This exciting deal is one of the latest in a run of successes in the lettings department at Wilfords whose biggest ticket deal was a £2,995 per week house on Courtnell Street and they also secured a record price on an apartment at 17 St Pancras Chambers, a historic, fascinating building in bustling Kings Cross.The firm is currently working on an extensive and diverse portfolio, which includes two-bedroom apartments priced at £2,300 per week, located at The Knightsbridge and above the Design Museum in Holland Green Place, Holland Park.Simon Welfare Co-Founder at Wilfords, said, “It’s been a very exciting start to the year here and increasingly we are finding that properties are letting in record times, achieving or exceeding asking price.

Corpus warns students of mumps outbreak

first_imgCorpus Christi has issued an email warning students of a mumps outbreak amongst the student population. It also notes that “Mumps is usually a self-limitingcondition. It will usually resolve over 1–2 weeks, with no long-termconsequences and antibiotic treatment is not required.” The email quotes the diagnosis of mumps from the NHS website as follows: “Mumps is a contagious viral infection.  It is most recognisable by the painful swellings at the side of the face under the ears (the parotid glands), giving a person with mumps a distinctive “hamster face” appearance.  “Rest, drink adequate fluids, and takeparacetamol or ibuprofen for symptomatic relief. “Other symptomsof mumps include headaches, joint pain and a high temperature, which maydevelop a few days before the swelling of the parotid glands.” “Apply warm or cold packs to the parotid gland asit may ease discomfort.  In an email addressed to “all students and tutors”, Corpus Christi’s Welfare Dean and College Nurse wrote that: “A number of students have been diagnosed with mumps so we thought it important to send out a message advising students what they need to look out for and what to do if they think they have mumps and advising tutors that mumps is circulating amongst the student body.”center_img “Do not attend tutorials, lectures or interact with other students for 5 days after the initial development of parotitis (inflammation of a parotid gland).  If you are able to go home it would be advisable to do so.” Oxford was previously affected by a mumps outbreak at University College in October 2018. Corpus Christi College has been contacted forcomment. The email further advisesstudents to “See the College Doctor (but informthe receptionist that you think you have mumps so they are aware prior to yourarrival at the surgery) or contact the College Nurse.

Press release: Vulnerable court users to benefit from £5m government investment

first_img I was bowled over by the work that has been done by the courts team at Liverpool to enable this expansion of service to take place. Our team of volunteers will be able to support more Litigants in Person as a direct result of the move to the new room which is already being shown by the rise in numbers of people we have helped. The PSU nationally managed more than 65,000 contacts in the last year and in this financial year we are expecting over 75,000 contacts. Liverpool is fast becoming one of our busier PSU units. Our vision “No one should face court alone” is alive and well in Liverpool. The refurbishment is part of HMCTS’ ambitious £1bn reform programme, which is bringing new technology and modern ways of working to the justice system.This programme has already delivered: A new fully accessible online civil money claims service giving the public the ability to make a small claim online – with more than 31,000 claims made since its launch in March and user satisfaction at 90%; A new system for applying for divorce online, which has cut errors in application forms from 40% to less than 1%; A new probate system in testing, which has cut errors, quickened the process and has a user satisfaction rate of 93%; A pilot of fully video hearings in tax tribunals to test the potential for roll-out where appropriate across the courts and tribunals system; The national implementation of a new in-court system to record the results of cases digitally and instantly. Justice Minister, Lucy Frazer said: The investment will allow for more people to be supported in a safer, more comfortable environment and is part of HMCTS’ commitment to improving the condition of court buildings and access to justice for all users.The Personal Support Unit (PSU) is a charity that helps people who find themselves in court and in need of assistance, providing them with support and guidance through a team of volunteers so they can represent themselves effectively in hearings. These are largely people representing themselves in cases of divorce, contact with children or eviction from their homes. Additional facilities now available include:center_img Court appearances can often come at difficult and emotional times in a person’s life. Therefore, I was delighted to hear the positive effects these new and improved personal support facilities are already having and look forward to seeing first hand the difference this refurbishment has made. The team of volunteers in Liverpool are doing a fantastic job and this funding means they can now offer their guidance and support to even more people. This government is committed to helping those that need it most and ensuring our justice system remains the best in the world. a new, larger room so that more people can be helped; kitchen facilities and new furniture; extra phone lines to allow volunteers to support more clients; privacy screens for conversations between clients and volunteers.

Mod Quad hosts third annual ‘Drip n’ Dodge’

first_imgMod Quad’s third annual “Drip n’ Dodge” will bring a splash of color to White Field Sunday as part of a fundraising effort for Camp Kesem, which provides support to children whose parents have cancer.The event, which is co-sponsored by Knott, Pasquerilla East, Pasquerilla West and Siegfried Halls, features altered games of dodgeball with teams of four to six people hurling paint-covered balls at one another.Water guns filled with paint are also provided so that people waiting to play can spray them to the teams playing, Pasquerilla East president sophomore Mary White said.Event organizers will use soft dodge balls and require participants to wear protective goggles, White said.Pasquerilla West president sophomore Margaret Costello said teams should be able to play in at least two games.“We have around 15 teams as it is, right now, but registration closes on Friday, and we are hoping to get more,” Costello said.Teams must pay a registration fee of $10 and proceeds will go to Camp Kesem, a nationwide camp Notre Dame has sponsored and hosted for the past 13 years, White said.“[Camp Kesem is] a summer camp for kids who just need to sort of get away for a little bit,” Costello said, “[Camp Kesem] greatly appreciates any donation they can get because they are not a huge organization, so anything helps for them.”The first 50 people to sign up will receive free Drip N’ Dodge t-shirts, and the event will include food, drinks and music.“This year, Drip N’ Dodge will be the best yet,” White said.Siegfried president sophomore Anthony LaGuardia said the prizes for the winners of the tournament add excitement to the event.The third place team will win a Papa John’s pizza party up to $100. The second place prize is six all-inclusive tickets to the Niles Haunted House and Scream Park in Niles, Miciganh. The first place prize is worth $300 dollars but is still a mystery.“We got a lot of money left over from the money that we got from Hall Presidents Council,” LaGuardia said.LaGuardia said they had hoped to donate the extra money to Camp Kesem, but due to some SAO and Hall Presidents Council procedural regulations, the money can only be used on the event.“I think the main reason behind this is because SAO not only wants to … put on events that raise a lot of money for charity, but they also wanted to get students involved,” LaGuardia said. “So I think that they think that the best way to do is to not just donate the money you receive but spend the money to make a cool event that … [is] part of the charity.”White said last year’s weather restricted participation, but she hopes for more students Sunday.“Last year, it was a rainy day, so less than 20 teams ended up playing on the day,” White said, “This year … our goal is at least 30 teams to play and … we expect a fun day out on White Fields.”Costello said they started planning in August and it has been an effort of the whole hall council.“[Drip n’ Dodge is] like Mod Quad’s big chance to let people know that we exist,” Costello said, “We’re sort of on the edge of campus. It’ll be nice to see some teams come from the other sides of campus to come.”Students can sign up for Drip N’ Dodge on Student Shop until 5 p.m. Friday. After that, they can email Mary White at [email protected] with their information until midnight Friday and pay their fees at the event.Tags: Drip n’ Dodge, Knott, Mod Quad, Pasqueriila East, Pasquerilla West, Siegfriedlast_img read more
