Why I’d buy FTSE 250 stocks now

first_imgWhy I’d buy FTSE 250 stocks now Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Image source: Getty Images Broad stock market weakness today is evident in the FTSE 250 index too. But I am not worried. Rather, I think it might be a buying opportunity. Here is why.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…Why stock markets are weakThe latest weakness is at least in part caused by recent data about the US economy. The jobs report last week was weak and the latest inflation numbers have gone through the roof. As any investor knows, when the US sneezes, the world catches a cold. And this time is no different. After the US markets closed weak yesterday, FTSE opened weak today. And not just because of a bearish mood. Many FTSE 100 companies are globalised. This means that high US inflation has an actual impact on both their costs in the US and in the country as a market. Why the FTSE 250 index is in a sweet spotOn the other hand, the FTSE 250 index adds in a lot of UK-focussed companies. While inflation in the US is an indicator of potential future trends in the UK’s inflation too, so far that number is relatively contained. To put it another way, inflation is less of a concern for the UK right now. As a side note, I do not think we should rule out the possibility that it could become a big risk going forward. But coming back to the main point, the prospects for the UK economy are looking great too. The Bank of England recently forecast that it will grow at 7.2% in 2021, the fastest rate since the Second World War. The combination of controlled inflation and high growth is golden in my view. It remains to be seen if the UK will be able to sustain it, but for now I am hopeful.FTSE 250 stocks I’d buyAlso, in this scenario, the pool of investable stocks can increase as there is growth across sectors. But there are some FTSE 250 stocks that could be in a particularly favourable position, even considering the likelihood of high inflation down the line.One of them is the wealth manager Brewin Dolphin, which is up today despite the FTSE 250 weakness. This is explained by its robust half-year results. For the six months ending 31 March 2021, its pre-tax profits are up a huge 44% compared to the corresponding half year in 2020. Barring explosive wage growth in the UK, I think it is likely to be largely insulated from any inflationary pressures. Also, household savings in the country have risen sharply in the lockdown, which bodes well. With growth prospects strong, I reckon personal investments will rise too, keeping wealth managers in demand. Another option is self-storage facilities provider Safestore Holdings, which too is up today after its trading update. The company, which operates in the UK and continental Europe, showed a robust rise in revenue. It also has a strong pipeline of new facilities. It also has a positive outlook.I am on the lookout for more companies like these for my portfolio.  There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

Choirs support and comfort those at life’s thresholds

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group January 17, 2014 at 12:51 pm The Threshold Choir is a wonderful way for human beings to gently reach out to each oither with ‘quiet’ support. I notice that the United Kingdom was not mentioned. We could certainly use them here (in Birmingham, England).

Photo: Faith Echtermeyer[Episcopal News Service] It all started with a song.Twenty-three years ago, Kate Munger filled in as a bedside volunteer for a friend dying of AIDS. “All morning I did chores, and in the afternoon I was supposed to sit by his bedside. And he was comatose and agitated, and I was terrified,” she recalled. “I had no idea what to do, so I started singing. I’ve been leading community singing for many years, and there was a song in that period that comforted me, that gave me courage when I was afraid. I sang it for two-and a-half hours.”By the end of that time, he had calmed, “and I got calmer as well,” she said. “I realized that I had given him the best gift that I personally could give him and that I had given him something essential, something very deep from my soul to his soul.”Ten years later, in Berkeley, Calif., she started the first of what now are 108 “threshold choirs,” who sing a capella by invitation for people on life’s thresholds. The Threshold Choir network of primarily women’s choirs stretches across the country and as far as Australia and Cambodia, although most groups are in the continental United States and Canada. Members generally visit homes, hospitals, hospices and other locations in groups of two to four, singing softly in what Munger calls “lullaby voice.”Although Threshold Choir is not a religious organization, members will sing a hymn if asked. Some choirs rehearse at Episcopal churches or have Episcopal members, and at least one choir in Illinois operates as a ministry in an Episcopal parish.“This is prayer and not performance,” said Munger, the organization’s creative director. “I think people that are not religious have access to prayer just like people who are religious.” A threshold choir can provide support for those who don’t necessarily have a church to meet their beliefs and needs, she noted.The definition of “threshold” is somewhat flexible. “We focus on end of life, and some choirs sing for people who are ill and in treatment and struggling,” said Munger, the organization’s creative director. “Our official wording is that we sing for people who are struggling, some with living, some with dying.”In Oregon, the Portland Threshold Choir rehearses at St. David of Wales Episcopal Church and sings for certain communal events as well as for individuals. On Dec. 20 at 6, the group will provide musical accompaniment for a Longest Night Service at the church.While the holidays are portrayed as “a time of sweetness, joy, happiness, light,” this service acknowledges “that there are a lot of people for whom the holiday season has got the other side of that spectrum, too: grief, depression, despair, sadness, anger,” said Kri Schlafer, the choir’s director. The group sings while worshipers have a chance to light a candle and leave a photo or other reminder of someone who died or needs healing. The singers leave space within the music “where people can speak their name into the silence,” she said.“Some people call it a Blue Mass,” said Rector Sara Fischer, adding that the singers “do an absolutely beautiful job helping us to create a really meaningful service every year.”The group also sings at local labyrinth walks and at Portland’s 24-hour Chants for Peace, where groups connected with a variety of traditions each sing for an hour in a kind of musical relay to raise awareness of peace and peace-building.And the choir sings for individuals or families, with groups of one to three people visiting homes, adult foster cares or hospitals, finding out how to be most supportive and singing the songs that would be meaningful to them.“The intention is really to be companions on the journey, whatever journey they’re on,” Schlafer said. “We keep things fairly open in Portland in terms of wanting to honor a variety of thresholds.” Their first call was for a family with a new baby. They’ve also sung for a wedding – “pretty much any significant threshold crossing where that kind of presence is called for,” she said.“We’re not a performance choir; we’re a presence choir,” said Schlafer. And, although the singers rehearse at a church, they are not connected to any particular religion, she said. She herself was raised Episcopalian and now follows the Zen Buddhist mindfulness practice of Thich Nhat Hanh.The choir will sing secular songs or songs from a religious tradition, if that is what will be most meaningful to the listener, she said. “We want to meet them where they are.”The choirs work from a songbook, with many of the songs sung as rounds or with harmony, said Georgia Duncan, who sings with the Flagstaff Threshold Choir in Flagstaff, Arizona. The choir rehearses at the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, where she is a member.“They’re mostly ones that have been composed for this situation. They’re very simple, spiritual, quiet songs,” she said. On one occasion, the church’s deacon called to say a woman at the hospice where she is chaplain wanted them to come and sing “Whispering Hope.”“It’s not like a performance,” she said. “It’s singing very quietly.”Afterwards, the individuals they sing for seem more relaxed, she said. “Sometimes we’ll sing in the living room area [of a medical institution]. People have remarked that it just seems to lend a note of peace to the whole facility.”The work affects the singers as well. “I feel quieted and uplifted” after singing, Duncan said.For her, the threshold choir is a ministry. “Ministries take all forms,” she said. “I try to be aware of all sorts of situations where one can be a minister without thinking of it in the traditional sense.”In Burr Ridge, Illinois, the St. Helena’s Threshold Singers are not all church members, but the choir is among the ministries of St. Helena’s Episcopal Church, said Daryce Hoff Nolan, choir musical director and co-founder, who is a pastoral associate and diaconal aspirant at the church.“When we rehearse, we start with a prayer intention, which is a little unusual,” she said. “We also have prayer before we go in to sing for someone to settle ourselves. It’s a little bit nerve-wracking, at least at the beginning. You want to be your best.”Many of the members are or have been choral singers, she said. “You’re programmed to be perfect. This does not have to be perfect. We practice in order for it to be as good as it can be for the listener. … The intention is really what drives all of us together, to support and bring healing and comfort.”They sing the music compiled by Threshold Choir, much of it written by choir members, some from folk sources, she said. “For anyone in Christian circles, particularly that’s been involved in meditation … I would liken it to Taize music. It tends to be simple and repetitive, [of a] gentle, lullaby nature.”While they sing to people at the end of life, “it can also be people who are struggling emotionally and need support,” she said. As a music teacher by profession who has worked as a health-care chaplain in a hospital and hospice, “this for me is just the perfect blend … to be able to combine my two great loves.”She recalled singing at the bedside of a parishioner in hospice and later being asked to sing at her memorial service. “The response that people give when they’re being sung to is just profound. This lady’s response was, she sat up in her bed and just smiled and looked at each one of us in the eye.”On another occasion, choir members were doing a workshop for staff in a memory-care unit. As they were leaving, one dementia patient became very agitated, and the staff asked them to sing to her.“At the beginning, she got a little more agitated, but there was a very interesting moment when she took a deep breath and just her whole countenance quieted,” Nolan said. “Actually her breath began to match our song, the breath in the song. It was incredible. And it was really the first some of my choir members had actually had an experience with a patient, so it just made them so acutely aware of what our work was going to do, and it also made them excited to do it.”Early on, the group also sang to St. Helena’s member Chris DiBartelo, a close friend of Nolan’s with chronic back pain.“At first, I kind of felt a little, I don’t know, awkward, because most of these people I knew,” she recounted. “Once the opened their mouths to sing, it was just unbelievably beautiful. It just took me to another place, mentally and emotionally. … It was extremely soothing.”Using a slightly different approach, the Threshold Choir of New York City focuses its efforts on specific hospitals rather than visiting homes. “We don’t have cars. We’re in Manhattan, and it really is difficult to move around,” explained Sue Ribaudo, founder and director. “We decided to go where the people were, and that’s how we decided to be hospital-based.”They began with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. “It’s a little different there, because it’s not hospice,” she said. “The patients that we’re singing to are just there temporarily in the hospital.”They subsequently added singing on the hospice floors of two other hospitals. They try to visit each hospital once a week, with different song leaders directing groups of three or four people. They’ll visit a hospital floor and sing for different patients, if they wish. Most welcome the experience, she said. “They’re usually surprised. They’re used to getting flowers, not songs.”The cancer patients often applaud, “which we don’t ask for,” Ribaudo said. “We’re not performance-oriented really so much as offering, I’d say, almost a prayer.“Music is spiritual. It speaks to that part of us,” she said. “Many of the songs I think of as being very spiritual, that they speak to something beyond us. And also, we do have in our repertoire … some religious songs in case people request them or if we sense that something like that would be appropriate. No one’s against religion. We just want to be open, especially in New York City. It’s so multicultural, we want to be open to the fact that not everybody’s a Christian.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

Eggfest Celebrates ‘Eggceptional’ Grilled Cuisine

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter 3rd Annual Central Florida Fall Eggfest Celebrates the Big Green Egg and ‘Eggceptional’ Grilled CuisineRock concerts may evoke fandemonium, but it’s the Big Green Egg that gets people smokin’. Charcoal, that is, barbecue, roasting, seasonings and rubs. ‘Eggheads,’ as fans of the grill call themselves, are quite a savory bunch.The 3rd Annual Central Florida Fall Eggfest takes place on Saturday, November 12, 2016. The event takes place at Wekiva Island from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Cook and Taster Tickets are available at centralfloridafalleggfest.com.“Eggfests” celebrate cooking with a Big Green Egg. The Egg is a ceramic, egg-shaped, charcoal, barbecue cooker. While there are other ceramic grills on the market, the Egg has garnered quite a loyal fan following.Peter Weller, event organizer, likens the event to a phenomenon.“A culture has evolved all around the world known as ‘Big Green Egg Culture,’” he said. “An Egghead, for instance, is one obsessed with anything involving the grill. They will travel to any Eggfest, supply their own stuff to cook and display their creations. They do this for the pleasure of watching people enjoy themselves eating the food.”Weller, of course, is an Egghead.“I still scratch my head wondering why we enjoy spending so much money to watch others have a good time with the food! It’s such a good feeling! That’s the best way to describe it,” he said. “We all get to know each other and we enjoy participating in the process.”The event, while not a competition, still instills a competitive spirit among participants.“It’s an incubator of foodie fun and talent,” Weller exclaimed.The talent includes Josh Tahan of True Craft Barbecue. An ‘eggficianado,’ he will create a variety of yummies for tasting. How does smoked turkey, lemon pepper shrimp and key lime dipping sauce sound? Tahan will teach various techniques on the grill and you’re sure to take home some recipes.“Whether a novice with an Egg or an ‘Eggspert,’ you will learn something,” Weller added.Marcia Simmons will create a “Wok through the Park” – cooking dishes in a wok on the Big Green Egg.Other cooking demos include preparing breakfast items, ribs, chicken, pizza, pork butt, turkey, seafood…“The sky’s the limit with the Egg,” Weller said. “We will also have give-aways – some lucky person will win a Large Green Egg. There are seven sizes from XXlarge down to mini. We’ll have vendors selling products associated with the Eggs, as well.”Music will also play a part. Local musician, Jason LoGrande, is MC and entertainer for the event.Travel Country Outfitters is the sponsor of the event. They will be on hand selling ‘Eggcessories’. Demo Eggs can be purchased at a significant discount prior to the event. To purchase, visit the Demo Egg Sales page on the website, http://centralfloridafalleggfest.com. Along with some their other product lines like: Thermoworks , Ceramic Grill Store, and Flame Boss a company located in Apopka FL. “Our cooks at the event use the Demo Eggs to cook on,” Weller said.“Our cooks at the event use the Demo Eggs to cook on,” Weller said.For tickets, directions, hotel information and schedule visit the website – http://centralfloridafalleggfest.com.Proceeds from the event benefit The Wekiva River through KeepSeminole.org.“The river is not what it once was,” said Weller. “It belongs to everyone. So we need to do what we can to educate citizens on these causes and what we need to do to minimize pollution.” UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 You have entered an incorrect email address!

Japan vs Canada – Nailbiting finish

first_imgFriday Sep 28, 2007 Japan vs Canada – Nailbiting finish As mentioned in the previous post, the match between Japan and Canada ended with a thrilling last minute try, leaving Japan 2 points behind the Canadians, with the conversion to come. Shotaro Onishi was the man entrusted with the hugely important kick that would see his team drawing the match. Onishi stepped up to it, and with the Canadians charging at him, kept his head, followed through, and made history. Surely one of the biggest nights in Japanese rugby, and the global audience will agree, one of the better finishes to a game we’ve seen this year.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Nelson House is situated on a rise overlooking Kapiti Island and the coastal residences of Waikanae Beach.

With a love of timber weatherboards, plywood and concrete, it became important to include these materials in the house in an honest and integral way. Due to the sloping nature of the site and the need to have a division between the owners’ day-to-day living spaces and guest accommodation, the plan required a split from the start – whether horizontal or vertical in nature.Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureSave this picture!Plan 0Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureSave this picture!Plan -1The concrete spine wall serves as a divider between the two distinct building forms (one clad in weatherboard, the other ‘service’ area clad in plywood) and also a heat-sink for the fire, maintaining a uniform heat during the colder winter months. The dual roof forms collide over the dining/gallery area with a clear intersection of the two highlighted over the central fireplace.Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureSave this picture!DetailTimber has been used in its’ natural form throughout, with natural stains to allow the texture and grain of the wood to gleam through.Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: RFP Schematic Design for the Redevelopment of the Amethyst LotCall for SubmissionsKCAP & Kunst + Herbert Win Competition for “Garden City of the 21st Century” in HamburgArchitecture News Share Nelson House / a.k.a Architecture Year:  ArchDaily Architects: a.k.a Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796225/nelson-house-aka-architecture Clipboard Photographs:  Nic Nelson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Nelson House / a.k.a ArchitectureSave this projectSaveNelson House / a.k.a Architecture CopyHouses•Kapiti Coast District, New Zealandcenter_img 2014 Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a Architecture+ 32 Share CopyAbout this officea.k.a ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKapiti Coast DistrictNew ZealandPublished on September 30, 2016Cite: “Nelson House / a.k.a Architecture ” 30 Sep 2016.

It all started with our clients’ purchase of a house over a hundred years old. The traditional building with a gable roof was at its end. Its stone basement was still in a good condition so we decided to take down the rest of the house and use the stone socle in the basement as a foundation for the new house. Our courageous and somewhat risky plan worked out and today, the clients live in a beautiful, modern house which combines the historical soul of its predecessor and nordic esthetics with a touch of industrial style. What can we say? The road to success is not always an easy one but it’s worth it to put in a little extra effort.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe lot borders a busy road which serves as a starting point for tourists heading to the Jizera Mountains. Because of this we designed a new concrete wall in place of the former exterior wall of the old house. This will not only decrease the amount of noise from the nearby road but also define the outside entrance area to the house. Behind the wall is a small yard with a view of Ještěd which serves as a guidepost between the entrance, the guest house and the stairs to the yard below.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe construction of the new part is wooden. The asphalt roof together with the black, tar-painted facade reminds us of the shed that used to stand here. On the old stone foundation behind the concrete wall are actually two houses; a family house and a small guest house for a young sailor, the clients’ son, who spends most of the year at the helm of transatlantic ships.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!Upper floor planThe parents’ house is more complicated as its building design had to encompass the needs of three different people – a friendly couple and their daughter. The wooden addition above the basement ceiling consists of bedrooms, an office, a bathroom with a toilet and an outdoor yard with a sauna. Sauna therapy is a pleasant variation during the harsh northern winters. That’s why the clients hardly let it cool down. Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe living space of the house is defined by large windows on both sides. The window on the southwest facade brings the view of the Harcov stream valley and Ještěd while the north window shows the previously mentioned sauna yard. A couple of steps lower is a living room stairhead with a fireplace and a wide staircase to the kitchen and dining room which are connected to the patio. The rest of the basement is used as a utility room and storage space.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceWe enjoyed designing the interior. There are many custom-made elements. In the bathrooms you can find water taps, some of which were replaced with copper pipes and garden taps. In the bedroom there are wardrobes hanging from the ceiling so that they don’t take up so much space and keep the bedroom, walk-in closet and bathroom interconnected.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe kitchen counter was designed in a way that retained the former granite blocks from which the lower part of the house was built. The yard is modest yet beautiful. A couple of large trees give the impression of a mountain forest. A few pots were added around the vegetable garden where the wife keeps fresh herbs.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessRoof Waterproofing with Water: A Solution by ‘Brasil Arquitetura’ArticlesKompaniya Restaurant / DA bureauSelected Projects Share “COPY” Year:  Photographs Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNice+ 40Curated by Paula Pintos Share House Behind the Wall / Mjölk architects Photographs:  Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNice Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeMjölk architectsOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationLiberecCzech RepublicPublished on May 28, 2019Cite: “House Behind the Wall / Mjölk architects” 28 May 2019.
