Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address 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. Forget Bitcoin! I’d buy bargain UK shares in an ISA today to get rich and retire early 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The recent stock market crash means that there are many bargain UK shares currently on offer. Certainly, they may not necessarily benefit from a market rebound in the short term due to ongoing risks such as the threat of a second wave of coronavirus. However, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have solid long-term recovery potential.Undervalued stocks could offer a superior risk/reward opportunity compared to popular assets such as Bitcoin. The virtual currency’s lack of fundamentals and its regulatory risks mean that purchasing cheap FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks in a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a better means of improving your retirement prospects.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…Bargain UK sharesThe threat of a second market crash means that there continue to be a wide range of bargain UK shares on offer. Of course, it is only after a market rally that investors know whether a stock ultimately proves to offer good value for money. However, the valuations of many stocks at the present time suggest that a large number of them are likely to fall into that category.For example, a variety of companies currently trade on valuations that are significantly below their long-term averages. This suggests that investors are pricing in the prospect of a further market crash, and that they offer wide margins of safety.Over time, the discount to intrinsic value available on UK shares could narrow as the economy’s performance and investor sentiment gradually improve. Although this prospect may seem somewhat unlikely at the present time, the scale of monetary policy stimulus being enacted in major economies means that a return to asset price growth is relatively likely over the coming years.Bitcoin’s uncertain outlookWhile UK shares face an uncertain future, their long-term prospects appear to be more favourable than that of Bitcoin. The virtual currency faces competition from other cryptocurrencies that could reduce demand among investors, while regulatory risks have the potential to curb its price rise following a decline earlier in the year.Moreover, Bitcoin lacks fundamentals. As such, while investors can deduce that many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares are currently undervalued from analysing their data, it is impossible to know whether the virtual currency is cheap or expensive. As a result, it could prove to be a very risky asset to hold – especially for investors who will one day rely on their portfolio to produce a passive income in retirement.Therefore, buying a selection of bargain UK shares from across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 could be a better idea than purchasing Bitcoin. Their recovery potential and exceptionally low valuations in some cases could lead to impressive returns that improve your financial prospects and help to bring your retirement date a step closer.

Eddie Jones Would Make Shortlist for Wallabies Job

first_imgHe does have a break clause in that contract based on England’s performance in Japan though, so it appears every decision by both Jones and Cheika will be based upon the outcome of the World Cup in Japan next year.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter. Current England coach Eddie Jones has been name-checked by an ARU official as a dream candidate for the Wallabies job, should Michael Cheika quit in 2019. Eddie Jones Would Make Shortlist for Wallabies JobConsidering England have won 24 of 26 Tests under Eddie Jones, this headline could be a massive shock.Well hold your horses because this is merely thinking out loud at this point.Rugby Australia are not currently looking to replace Michael Cheika but the head coach has said he would resign if Australia do not win the World Cup in Japan next year. That would be one step further than he took the side in the 2015 tournament, as the Wallabies lost to New Zealand in the final.However, Rugby Australia high-performance manager Ben Whitaker has been talking about mulling over potential new head coaches.Related: Watch: Eddie Jones verbally abused“I can’t speak on behalf of the board, but if I’m tasked with pulling together a list of potential candidates, is Eddie Jones on there? Yeah, he is,” Whitaker told Fox Sports Australia.He went on: “Where that goes in terms of the process that we run, well, that will be determined. Shortlist: Jones has been named as a possible replacement for Michael Cheika in 2019 (Getty Images) center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “You appreciate the skills he’s got as a head coach. And if he’s willing and able – things you’d have to work out – he’d be on the list, probably another dozen would be too.”Jones had coached the Wallabies from 2001 to 2005, including a World Cup final loss to England in 2003. As a result, Whitaker admitted that Jones would be put on any list he was expected to draw up.Grand Slam: Under Jones, England won a Slam in 2016 (Getty Images)But Jones has been inspired as England boss, winning two Six Nations titles in a row including a Grand Slam in 2016. England could still win the 2018 Six Nations title too, despite their humbling loss against Scotland in round three of the tournament.Related: Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round ThreeCombine this with the fact that Jones has recently extended his contract with the Rugby Football Union until 2021, then it is unlikely that the England supremo is going anywhere, anytime soon.last_img read more

The site was an existing void in the middle of a slope, bound on two sides by magnificent old containment walls built of stone. These walls defined a level area of approximately 12x10mts, 7.5mts below the level of the road. A few scattered trees seemed significant, as vegetation is hard to find at 2000 mts high in the middle of The Andes Mountains. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusRecommended ProductsDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20Doorspanoramah!®ah! PivotThe intense bright light reflected off the snow, together with the thermal loss through windows and walls are important aspects when building in the mountains. These conditions were something that the old mountain chalets, built in the town of Farellones during the 40’s and 60’s, took into account through small interior spaces and thick stonewalls with very small openings in their facades. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusFor designing this contemporary mountain refuge we proposed a monolithic volume of stone that partially fills the void left by the existing containment walls. Window openings are minimal and were placed so as to illuminate specific acts, or to frame certain parts of the surrounding landscape, keeping away the sight of the neighbours. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusThis simple stone cube is broken up by other elements that overhang from its perimeter, modifying the basic figure and giving it an orientation towards specific external features. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusA horizontal window looking out to the main view across the valley below appears as another volume, which also serves a bench. A second transparent volume on top, serves as an access area that acts as a lamp during the night. Finally, a light steel walkway links the road with the upper level of the refuge. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusThe window of good weather for building at these altitudes is very narrow (6 months), so a rapid construction plan was required. We decided to build with a prefabricated steel frame structure that would reduce assembly time. This metal cage was then covered with different layers of insulation responding to specific needs; (much like the clothes of a mountain climber). Save this picture!© Felipe CamusFirst, an interior plywood cladding for a warmer atmosphere in the inside, then a double thermal insulation within the steel structure, next a waterproof membrane, and finally an exterior cladding of black slate stone. This external finish resists well the harsh weather of extreme low temperatures, snow and rain. It also establishes a material link with the old stone refuges nearby. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusUnlike the nearby existing structures, whose construction is now too expensive, here the stone doesn’t take a structural role. This is accentuated by the vertical and horizontal position of the stone and by not letting the cladding touch the ground. Save this picture!© Felipe CamusMountain lodges normally receive more people than they can lodge, more mountain gear than they can store, more logs than they can burn, and the design had to foresee this situation. To take this into account the structure was divided into 3 independent floors. A first floor with 4 small bedrooms, a second floor with a common space with four areas for eating, playing, sitting and cooking, and a third floor for access and with enough space to store all that mountain equipment.

These stores were identified as under-performing or are situated in areas where too many locations are in close proximity, the company said in a statement.Steve Becker, Tuesday Morning CEO, said the prolonged and unexpected closures of their stores in response to COVID-19 has had severe consequences on the business.“Prior to the pandemic, we were gaining momentum in our merchant organization, growing our vendor base and improving brands, assortment and value for our customers, while investing in our technology and corporate leadership team,” Becker said. “However, the complete halt of store operations for two months put the Company in a financial position that can be effectively addressed only through a reorganization in Chapter 11.”The company said it has obtained a commitment from its existing lender group to provide $100 million of debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing. As required by the DIP agreement, Tuesday Morning is required to obtain a commitment for up to $25 million of additional financing, which the company said it is currently negotiating.Tuesday Morning said it plans to renegotiate a significant number of leases during the process. Of the remaining 555 stores, the company plans to exit about 100 additional locations, leaving a go-forward footprint of about 450 stores.The company added the realignment will allow it to improve product offering by focusing on the highest performing stores in its most productive markets,and enhance its overall profitability and credit worthiness, with resources directed at its most profitable stores.“The commitment from our lenders to provide access to significant capital demonstrates faith in our value-driven business model and iconic brand,” Becker said. “Looking ahead, we’ve been encouraged by very positive performance of the business as we continue to re-open our doors and welcome back our dedicated customers.”Following the closure of the entire store portfolio as a result of COVID-19, Tuesday Morning said it has been able to re-open over 80 percent of its existing store footprint to date and expects to continue store re-openings and bringing associates back to work over the coming weeks.

Limerick businessman accused carrying out spate of armed robberies refused bail

first_imgNewsLimerick businessman accused carrying out spate of armed robberies refused bailBy Staff Reporter – February 18, 2016 1883 Email Twitter Print Linkedin Advertisementcenter_img Facebook Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE CATASTROPHIC collapse of a Limerick man’s business led him to carry out a number of armed robberies, a court has been told.John Carroll (49) of Clonshire, Adare was arrested by armed Gardaí last October as he attempted to rob a petrol station near the Limerick/Clare border while in possession of a rifle.His arrest followed eight armed robberies and three attempted robberies at various locations in Limerick, Clare, Tipperary and Cork.The married father-of-two is also accused of committing two burglaries at the homes of his mother and father-in-law and his sister in law in September of last year when he stole jewellery, documents, a rifle and a safe.Objecting to the granting of bail, at Limerick District Court this week Sergeant Niall Flood said that Carroll is alleged to have “popped a window” in the home of his sister-in-law and taken jewellery and the keys to his father-in-law’s home which he later entered without permission.Judge Mary Larkin was told that he also accused of carrying out several robberies of petrol stations where he demanded that cashiers fill plastic or paper bags with money from the till.Sgt Flood said that cashiers told Gardaí that he used what they believed to be a handgun to carry out the robberies. They said they were in fear of their lives when the robberies were taking place.Gardaí feared that Carroll would commit more serious crimes if released.However, Defence solicitor John Herbert said that his client had not sought bail following his arrest and had since engaged with a psychiatric counsellor.“John Carroll had a relatively ordinary life after school. He later set up his own business before being effectively cleaned out in late 2014 and the start of 2015. He had no source of income after his business catastrophically collapsed”, Mr Herbert said.He had certain mental health difficulties in the past and these were revisited once the the pressure of everything got on top of him.Mr Herbert said that notwithstanding the impression that the victims got when seeing the guns, Carroll used imitation weapons and the rifle he was found with had been decommissioned.He added that his client had fully engaged with services since he was remanded in custody and “did not want to go back out into the dark of night to rob petrol stations”.Refusing the application for bail, Judge Larkin said she accepted the State’s evidence and told Mr Herbert that he would have to take his “argument to the High Court”.John Carroll was remanded in continuing custody to March 15 when the State is expected to serve the book of evidence.

Worldwide Security Robots Industry to 2028 – Rising Trend of Autonomous Operations Presents Opportunities…

first_img Worldwide Security Robots Industry to 2028 – Rising Trend of Autonomous Operations Presents Opportunities – ResearchAndMarkets.com WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Pinterest Local NewsBusiness By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 Twittercenter_img TAGS  Facebook DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– The “Global Security Robots Market 2021-2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. After analyzing the global security robots market in detail, the author has concluded that this industry is likely to display an upward trend, with a CAGR of 9.35% in terms of revenue in the forecasting years between 2021 and 2028. Robots are increasingly being used in security and surveillance applications. They are steadily making their way into the surveillance market, for purposes like patrolling shopping malls, college campuses, parking lots, and other public areas. Recent technological developments in a broad range of sensors and their miniaturization, as well as a rise in investments in these robots, are driving growth in the studied market. However, the rising concerns about intrusion to privacy, the rigid nature of regulations, and the lack of availability of high-quality and reliable solutions are hampering the development of this part. However, on the bright side, growth in automation and an increase in defense and security expenditure in developing economies are creating lucrative growth avenues. The global market for security robots spans across Europe, the Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, North America, and Latin America. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to become the fastest-growing market for security robots, globally. It is one of the most lucrative markets worldwide. The region has witnessed a rise in the demand for both commercial as well as government security robots. The reasons for the rise in demand are the geopolitical tensions among nations and a rise in their military budgets. For instance, some of the prominent economies of the region, like China and India, have significantly raised their military budgets. This is creating new opportunities for players wanting to invest in this market. Such factors are driving the growth of the security robots market in the APAC.

Large gate stolen from An Grianan Fort
