So far in the year, we’ve seen many stocks crash and then slowly curve upwards. Such a decline and choppiness provide opportunities to buy stocks at a discount to what they were previously priced. And for those of us who want to retire early, that’s music to our ears.Therefore today, I’ll discuss a FTSE 250 member I believe should be on your radar if you’re looking for robust investment ideas.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…FTSE 250 may mean growthThe FTSE 250 index consists of the 101st to the 350th largest companies listed on the LSE. It was launched in 1992. Companies in it usually have a more domestic focus so they’re more directly affected by shorter-term developments in the UK economy. Thus, it’s a bit different than the FTSE 100 where most companies are multinational conglomerates.My Motley Fool colleagues regularly point out that, over the long run, the stock market returns about 6-8% annually, on average. For example, in the past 10 years, the FTSE 250 index is up about 75%. And this return holds true, despite the recent market crash. In January, the FTSE 250 went over the 22,000 mark and hit an all-time high. Now it’s hovering around 17,000.This increases in the index level doesn’t include the dividend payments made out to shareholders. Average dividend yields for the FTSE 250 is about 2.8%.You can retire wealthyLet’s assume you’re now aged 25 with £5,000 in savings and that you plan to retire at 65. You decide to invest that sum in a fund now and make an additional £4,000 of contributions annually at the start of the year. You have 40 years to invest. The annual return is 6%, compounded once a year. At the end of 40 years, the total amount saved becomes £707,620. Saving £4,000 a year would mean being able to put aside around £333 a month, or about £11 a day. Might you just be wondering if you should skip that next impulse purchase?If you could increase your annual contributions to £5,000, then the total would be £871,667. Therefore, any amount invested in robust FTSE 250 shares will likely help you retire early. And possibly quite rich.Playtech specMaking the right investment decisions in stock markets isn’t necessarily about constantly picking winning shares and funds, buying cheap, and selling fast when the price rises. Rather, it’s about having a long-term strategy. FTSE 250 member Playtech (LSE:PTEC) deserves your attention for such a portfolio.Founded in 1999, it provides crucial software used in the gambling and financial trading industries. Put another way, it’s a technology company that works with other businesses. Its main customers include retail and online casino operators and government sponsored entities, such as lotteries. For example, in 2019, PTEC gained the seal of approval from online gaming giant GVC. Playtech will be providing services to GVC’s brands until 2025.Its financials division, TradeTech Group, also works with the financial trading industry. Since March, the platform is benefitting from the increased market volatility and trading volumes. With an employee count of 6,000 across 21 countries, its international reach is also wide and growing. The emphasis is building the regulated market gaming business. Year-to-date, PTCE shares are down 33%, hovering around 265p. With a forward P/E of 8.1 and P/B of 0.72, this FTSE stock is definitely on my radar. Finally, as it grows the customer base, Playtech could also become a takeover candidate.

Year: Israel Photographs: Amit Geron Text description provided by the architects. The Aharoni House contains a section that embraces a fascinating opening point to the exploration of an architectural event.The house is situated on a half an acre lot in an old part of Moshav Never Yarak, located in the Sharon-the Central region of Israel. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe lot is framed on three sides by an impressive, 50 year old, vegetation. The fourth side is defined by the predominant part of the house itself. The house conducts a dialogue with its surroundings through a series of sections that evolve along a walk relative to the length of the building. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe structure is essentially modern. It assimilates an experiment interpreting an architectural event by means of sections that develop contrasts between a low, wide horizontal space and a tall, narrow vertical staircase, lit dramatically by high positioned windows. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe swimming pool, perceived as a horizontal plane, integrates perpendicularly to the rectangular volume of the house, framing a ceremonial entrance. The mirror-like surface and strong rectangular structure create an experience accompanied by natural light from above. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe architectural scene creates two parallel and complementary ways for the resident to experience his place in the world: the entirety, in which the building is situated and which closes the greenery enveloped space, versus the continuity of discoveries and surprises the user encounters during his progress through the house. These individual events are partly repetitive, derived from the rituals that create a home atmosphere, are partly unique, and dependent on time and place.Thus, the architectural structure becomes a home; a place that give a sense of belonging, identity and meaning.Save this picture!© Amit GeronProject gallerySee allShow lessKaohsiung Vortex / Influx_StudioArticlesBaabdat Residence / L.E.FTArticles Share CopyHouses•Tel Aviv, Israel Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/93361/aharoni-house-stav Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/93361/aharoni-house-stav Clipboard ArchDaily Save this picture!© Amit Geron+ 37 Share Aharoni House / STAV Architects: STAV Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Area: 1800 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Aharoni House / STAVSave this projectSaveAharoni House / STAV Projects 2008 Photographs CopyAbout this officeSTAVOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTel AvivHousesIsraelPublished on December 05, 2010Cite: “Aharoni House / STAV” 05 Dec 2010.

From helping 384 beneficiaries in 2015, the charity is now on track to hit its target of supporting 10,000 financially vulnerable women by 2021. Its application success rate has also risen from just 1% (in 2016) to 70% (2019), with monthly hardship payments rising from £29K to nearly £60K.There were also three Improving Impact Awards: for charities with 0-3, 4-25, and 26+ paid staff. These were won by Older Citizens Advocacy York, Sport 4 Life UK, and St Mary’s Hospice.Judges admired the open, collaborative and continual learning approach of St Mary’s Hospice’s Living Well Centre, in the deprived area of Burrow-in-Furness. The hospice has developed partnerships with eleven local organisations to reach further into the community, with reports stating the centre helps improve well-being and connectedness for around 250 people every month.Stories of all of the winning charities, and the shortlisted entrants, can be found on the Charity Governance Awards site.Michael Jarvis, who chairs the Awards for organisers The Clothworkers’ Company, said:“Every year we are hugely impressed by the commitment, creativity and ingenuity shown by charity boards and their trustees.“Those exceptional skills and ideas have never been more needed than now, as we face the impact of the pandemic. Tonight’s winners, like so many in the charity sector, are at the forefront of providing support to those affected, and the wider economic situation will pose great challenges for most in the coming months. But sharing best practice and brilliant ideas has always aided the sector, so I hope that we can all weather this difficult time and emerge stronger through learning and collaboration.” 469 total views, 2 views today Advertisement Seven charities win share of £35,000 in 2020 Charity Governance Awards About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Parsons Foundation, The Ahmanson Foundation, and Verbum Dei High School.Several hundred donors, board members, subscribers, Resident Artists and other supporters packed multiple rooms at the fashionable downtown club for an evening of dining, celebration and performance that raised over $275,000, the record for a single funding event for the acclaimed non profit theater and its many education programs.Co-Producing Artistic Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott said, “An event celebrating the long term support of The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, The Ahmanson Foundation, and Verbum Dei High School, not just to our organization but to the entirety of our geographic area, illustrates to us the remarkable output of generosity and generosity of spirit that completely permeates our community.”Geoff Elliott said, “Our most successful art asks our community to question beliefs, focus on relationships, and develop self-awareness. The entire evening was not just a celebration of our 25th, but a celebration of fully engaged supporters and funders that have the idea of building community together through theatre – and an engagement with this most visceral and primal of storytelling techniques.”More about the A Noise Within Anniversary GalaA Noise Within honored The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation with the inaugural Community Matters Award. The Community Matters award recognizes an exemplary partner who is committed to promoting the wellbeing of the entire community.Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, Co-Producing Artistic Director of A Noise Within, said, “The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation has consistently provided critical core operating support which has been instrumental in helping ANW to fulfill its mission. In addition to being such an ardent champion and advocate of our work, this award also recognizes all that they have done to improve the broad fabric of the entire Southern California Community. We can’t imagine celebrating without them.”The Ahmanson Foundation was honored with the inaugural Chuck and Bette Redmond Legacy Award. Named after A Noise Within’s first and most ardent champions, the Chuck and Bette Redmond Legacy Award recognizes the extraordinary generosity of a supporter that continues to impact A Noise Within.“Chuck and Bette Redmond were among our earliest and most ardent supporters, and their passion and generosity continues to bolster A Noise Within,” said Rodriguez-Elliott. “We can’t think of a better recipient for this award. The Ahmanson Foundation has impacted ANW in much the same way as Chuck and Bette. This award recognizes all that they have done for ANW, for Pasadena, and the greater Los Angeles area. Their organization has proved to be a true supporter not only for the arts, but also for theatre education, which is central to our mission at ANW. The Ahmanson Foundation does remarkable work in increasing the quality of life in Southern California, as well as bolstering the cultural legacy of the region.”Verbum Dei High School was honored with the inaugural Outstanding Educational Partner Award, given to a school or teacher that has been an outstanding partner to A Noise Within with its contribution to continuing the importance of arts education. “Arts education is such an important component of the ANW Mission,” said ANW Director of Education and Community Outreach, Alicia Green. “Verbum Dei’s continued support and belief in the value of theatre in a student’s education embodies this vision completely. By passing the tradition along from parent to child, this legacy has continued and we look forward to continuing this incredible relationship for years to come.”A Noise Within, celebrating its 25th Anniversary during the 2016-17 season, was recently named “one of the nation’s premier classical repertory companies” by The Huffington Post, and is a leading regional producer based in Pasadena. ANW produces classic theatre as an essential means to enrich the community by embracing universal human experiences, expanding personal awareness, and challenging individual perspectives.The company of resident and guest artists performing in rotating repertory immerses student and general audiences in timeless, epic stories in an intimate setting, their state-of-the-art, 283-seat performing space.This venue, established in 2011, has allowed ANW to expand its audience, surpassing its previous box office and attendance records each year. In addition to producing world-class performances of classical theatre, the organization runs robust education programs committed to inspiring diverse audiences of all ages. Helmed by Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, who hold MFAs from San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre, A Noise Within truly delivers Classic Theatre, Modern Magic.In the past quarter-century, ANW has presented some 166 main stage productions, a challenging repertoire devoted to bringing classic plays to life in fully realized, full-bodied productions, garnering four LA Stage Ovation Awards (out of 31 nominations) and nearly 30 Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Awards, including the Polly Warfield Award for Excellence and the Margaret Harford Award for Distinguished Achievement. In 2012, American Conservatory Theater honored ANW Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott with their inaugural alumni “Contributions to the Field” Award.25th Anniversary Gala Honorary Committee: Annette Bening, Claire & Bill Bogaard, The De Pietro Family, Kathleen & James Drummy, Sharon & Rick Ellingsen, Heather & Paul Haaga, Alice S.

Twitter Facebook Limerick social entrepreneurs honoured for their work in response to covid-19 Limerick on Covid watch list Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat The University of Limerick has launched a new moot appeal court as part of its School of Law. The new moot appeal court is sponsored by A&L Goodbody, one of Ireland’s leading commercial law firms. The court will be used by law students to run mock tribunals and court cases to hone their academic legal skills into practical legal skills in a simulated environment. TAGSeducationLimerick City and CountyNewsstudentStudyUniversity of Limerick The launch of the new moot appeal court was marked by an event which took place on 20 March, chaired by The Honorary Mr Justice John Murray. Speakers at the event were Dr Vincent Power, partner at A&L Goodbody, and Prof John Friel of the University of Limerick who discussed what Brexit means for Ireland and businesses in Munster. The sponsorship reflects the strength of the relationship between ALG and UL and reinforces ALG’s commitment to improving the experience and learning of Irish law students.Ronan Lyons, partner responsible for ALG’s Trainee Solicitor Programme, said: “A&L Goodbody is delighted to sponsor the new moot appeal court at the University of Limerick.

Few non-native species have colonized Antarctica, although increased human activity and accelerated climate change may increase their number, distributional range, and effects on native species on the continent. We searched 13 sites on the maritime Antarctic islands and 12 sites on the Antarctic Peninsula for annual bluegrass (Poa annua), a non-native flowering plant. We also evaluated the possible effects of competition between P. annua and 2 vascular plants native to Antarctica, Antarctic pearlwort (Colobanthus quitensis) and Antarctic hairgrass (Deschampsia antarctica). We grew the native species in experimental plots with and without annual bluegrass under conditions that mimicked the Antarctic environment. After 5 months, we measured photosynthetic performance on the basis of chlorophyll fluorescence and determined total biomass of both native species. We found individual specimens of annual bluegrass at 3 different sites on the Antarctic Peninsula during the 2007–2008 and 2009–2010 austral summers. The presence of bluegrass was associated with a statistically significant reduction in biomass of pearlwort and hairgrass, whereas the decrease in biomass of bluegrass was not statistically significant. Similarly, the presence of bluegrass significantly reduced the photosynthetic performance of the 2 native species. Sites where bluegrass occurred were close to major maritime routes of scientific expeditions and of tourist cruises to Antarctica. We believe that if current levels of human activity and regional warming persist, more non-native plant species are likely to colonize the Antarctic and may affect native species.
The Western Antarctic Peninsula has recently undergone rapid climatic warming, with associated decreases in sea ice extent and duration, and increases in precipitation and glacial discharge to the ocean. These shifts in the freshwater budget can have significant consequences on the functioning of the regional ecosystem, feedbacks on regional climate, and sea-level rise. Here we use shelf-wide oxygen isotope data from cruises in four consecutive Januaries (2011–2014) to distinguish the freshwater input from sea ice melt separately from that due to meteoric sources (precipitation plus glacial discharge). Sea ice melt distributions varied from minima in 2011 of around 0 % up to maxima in 2014 of around 4–5%. Meteoric water contribution to the marine environment is typically elevated inshore, due to local glacial discharge and orographic effects on precipitation, but this enhanced contribution was largely absent in January 2013 due to anomalously low precipitation in the last quarter of 2012. Both sea ice melt and meteoric water changes are seen to be strongly influenced by changes in regional wind forcing associated with the Southern Annular Mode and the El Niño–Southern Oscillation phenomenon, which also impact on net sea ice motion as inferred from the isotope data. A near-coastal time series of isotope data collected from Rothera Research Station reproduces well the temporal pattern of changes in sea ice melt, but less well the meteoric water changes, due to local glacial inputs and precipitation effects.
We hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way.IS IT TRUE that yesterday the United States House of Representatives passed the Senate-approved $19 billion dollars disaster aid measure? …that this legislation has been blocked by a group of calloused lawmakers three times over the past two weeks? …thank goodness that this bill will now be sent to President Donald Trump for his signature, which can be delivered via auto-pen while he’s abroad in the United Kingdom?

HOBOKEN – hob’art, the co-operative art gallery, has launched its first group show at 404 Washington St., Hoboken. The show began on Dec. 18 and continues until Dec. 31. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be officiated by Mayor Dawn Zimmer on Saturday, Dec. 23.Participating artists include France Garrido, Janet Kolstein, Ibou Ndoye, Liz Cohen Ndoye, Jean Paul Picard, Leslie Rubman, Lily Zane, Jim Fallon, and Don Sichler.The theme, “POP”, gives permission to the artists to express their love of the more exuberant aspects of art, which can be found in the rich, vibrant, and varied colors and textures employed by Ndoye, Zane, Cohen Ndoye, and Garrido.Human limits seem lightly imposed on the more representational and thought provoking images of Fallon, Picard and Sichler. A surrealist dream-like other worldly quality surrounds the digital art of Kolstein and the mixed media work of Rubman, showing that art can “pop” the limits of reality through media, technique, and format.The show is a “pop up” exhibition, meaning the building owner has lent his shop to the artists in order to beautify the space for pedestrians and shoppers on the street, and potential tenants of the property, “win — win” concept for both the property owner and the artists.The hob’art artists hope to be able to fill empty storefronts in other parts of town and hope that this idea will catch on. Gallery information can be obtained on the website www.hob-art.org and via France Garrido at (201) 319-1504 or [email protected] artists of Hoboken wish to thank Charles Lallo, the proprietor of 404 Washington St. for his generosity.
