Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img UK share markets continue to struggle to turn in a strong recovery as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. Take the FTSE 100 for instance. After a false start to 2021, buying interest on Britain’s premier share index remains quite insipid.This broad risk-aversion is a crying shame in my opinion. This is because there are plenty of UK shares that should deliver terrific shareholder returns, regardless of the ongoing pandemic.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…Housing market headachesI don’t fancy investing my hard-earned cash in Foxtons (LSE: FOXT) though. The stamp duty holiday has helped drive house prices to the stars during the Covid-19 crisis. It’s possible that the scheme could be extended beyond March to stop homebuyer demand falling off a cliff too. But the government is so far resisting calls for a lengthening of the scheme, posing a huge threat to Britain’s estate agents.A new report by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) shows how the housing market is already beginning to freeze up. It showed new buyer enquiries in January falling for the first time since mid-2020. New listings and sales also dropped off last month, RICS said.Fresh Covid-19 lockdowns have hit sales in recent weeks, along with the imminent expiry of the stamp duty holiday. And conditions at UK shares like Foxtons are likely to remain tough as the British economy struggles and mortgage lenders keep low-deposit products off the market. This explains why City analysts expect this estate agent to remain loss-making in 2021.A UK share I’d rather buy in my ISAI’d be much happier to buy GB Group (LSE: GBG) for my Stocks and Shares ISA today. I already have exposure to the e-commerce segment thanks to my holdings in box-maker DS Smith and warehouse and logistics specialist Tritax Big Box. But Royal Mail’s impressive trading update last week has whetted my appetite for more plays on the online shopping theme. The courier said that it had enjoyed its best-ever quarterly performance for parcels at the end of 2020.GB Group provides address and identity verification services to help e-tailers and product manufacturers get their parcels to their customers. It’s therefore thriving as more and more parcels wing their way across the globe. This UK share has a whopping 20,000 clients spanning some 70 countries.Latest financials showed adjusted operating profit soared almost 25% in the six months to September. And I expect demand for GB Group’s services to keep rising thanks to the twin pillars of e-commerce and the growing threat of fraud.Be warned, though, that a bumpy economic recovery could hit consumer spending levels and consequently parcels traffic. GB Group could also suffer if tough conditions prompt clients to postpone making investment decisions. And the UK share’s high valuation could prompt a sharp share price drop if trading does indeed begin to disappoint. Today GB Group trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 45 times.

Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round One

first_img Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round OneThe first round of the 2020 Six Nations saw a host of players deliver strong displays and Sam Tremlett has been tasked with putting them into a Round One Team of the Weekend.In terms of results, Wales pulled off a solid victory against Italy, Ireland narrowly saw off Scotland and finally England got thoroughly outplayed by the French.Who made it into your XV? Is there someone we have missed? Don’t hesitate to let us know through our social media channels.Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round One1. Lisa Arricastre (France Women) All the latest news on players injured throughout… There were plenty of strong performances in the first round of the 2020 Six Nations, so Sam Tremlett faced a tricky task selecting a Team of the Weekend. Who makes the cut? Making her 70th appearance, Arricastre was part of a dominant French scrum that saw the team in blue earn several penalties against England.2. Rob Herring (Ireland)Nine From Nine: Herring was perfect in his line out throwing (Getty Images)Strong carrying, a tackling machine, and a performance that saw him land nine line outs from nine attempts, Herring was imperious against the Scots.3. Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)World Class: Furlong was at his best against Scotland (Getty Images)Zander Ferguson deserves a mention after making 15 tackles but Furlong gets the nod here because of his fine performance that results in him being atop the list of the best tight-heads in the world.4. Bernard Le Roux (France)Work Horse: Le Roux did a lot of the hard work at the Stade de France (Getty Images)The man who made the most tackles (22) of anyone during the weekend, Le Roux was one of several French forwards who physically outmatched the English.5. James Ryan (Ireland)Ahead Of His Years: Ryan continues to get better and better despite his young age (Getty Images)A lot has been made of Ryan of late and it is easy to see why. He is just 23 years-old and yet shows the work ethic, class and experience of a player a decade older. 17 tackles, 14 carries and six line out throws provide statistics to back up his selection.6. CJ Stander (Ireland)MoM: Stander rightly secured a man of the match award against Scotland (Getty Images)One of his finest performances in a green shirt, Stander quite rightly earned the man of the match award. His carrying and tackling was excellent but his finest moments came in two pivotal turnovers that halted Scottish momentum just as the game could swing either way.7. Charles Ollivon (France) Six Nations Table 2021 Six Nations Table 2021 9. Antoine Dupont (France)Constant Menace: Dupont was a constant threat for England (Getty Images)You got the sense that the English defence were constantly worrying about Dupont and his ability to create havoc. Rightly so too because he beat seven defenders, made two clean line-breaks and played a key role in the third French try with a slaloming run. Additionally his kicking and passing were superb.10. Jonathan Sexton (Ireland)Match Winner: Sexton scored all of Ireland’s points (Getty Images)Sexton could have been forgiven for showing some rust in the Irish opener against Scotland. That wasn’t the case though as he scored all 19 points on the day to lead the team to victory.11. Josh Adams (Wales)Triple Threat: Adams scored three tries against Italy (Getty Images)Poor Vincent Rattez. He was excellent against England however we could not ignore a hat-trick from arguably the best winger in the world right now. He may not have been on the ball that regularly but once again he showed his finishing ability, taking all three well.12. Sam Johnson (Scotland)Bright Spark: Johnson tested the Irish midfield (Getty Images)Aside from the silly penalty on Andrew Conway, Johnson was a bright spark for Scotland with his physicality and running lines. He showed he can create something out of nothing too as he only made eight carries and yet ran for over 60 metres.13. Emily Scarratt (England Women)Big Match Player: Scarratt always ups her game for the big moments (Getty Images)England may have been second best for much of the contest in Pau, but Scarratt showed her class with the boot and scored a huge try to ensure a 19-13 victory.14. Jonny May (England)Mixed Bag: It was an up-and-down performance from May (Getty Images)He may have failed to play to the whistle which resulted in a French try, but May made up for it with two moments of individual brilliance that gave the English some form of hope.15. Anthony Bouthier (France)First Cap: Bouthier showed no nerves in his debut (Getty Images)Unlike his fellow debutant George Furbank for England, Bouthier enjoyed a proficient afternoon at the back of the French line. Solid under the high-ball and occasionally linking up well with the wings, he showed his ability on the big stage. His kick which began its journey within his own 5-metre line, and ended up deep in the English 22 was a particular high point. 2021 Six Nations Injuries Update Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Who is leading the way in the Six… Six Nations Fixtures 2022 The 2022 Six Nations… 2021 Six Nations Injuries Update Expand Expand Born Leader: In his first game as captain, Ollivon scored twice (Getty Images)Justin Tipuric played very well as did Josh Van der Flier but we have gone with the French captain here. Two tries, eight line-out receptions, double digit tackles and leading the French to victory against the English is as good as it gets.8. Gregory Alldritt (France)Tireless: Alldritt seemed as if he was all over the pitch (Getty Images)France’s best player on the day, Alldritt is just 22 years-old which is scary as Les Bleus seek to turn over a new leaf under Fabien Galthie. The number eight had 12 carries, 16 tackles and was a frequent menace at the breakdown.

Bush and first lady Barbara Bush attend a dedication ceremony at Washington National Cathedral on Sept. 29, 1990, when the last stone was raised and set on the Saint Paul Tower. Photo: Associated Press[Episcopal News Service] President George H.W. Bush, a lifelong Episcopalian who credited his faith with shaping his public life, will be memorialized Dec. 5 at a state funeral held at Washington National Cathedral, the Episcopal Church’s and the nation’s most prominent house of worship.Bush, who died Nov. 30 at age 94, had a long, respected career in Washington, D.C., including as vice president from 1981 to 1989 and president from 1989 to 1993. During his 12 years in the White House, he engaged often with Episcopal Church leaders, conferring with presiding bishops on the issues of the day and even once speaking at General Convention.He also developed a friendship with former Washington Bishop John Walker, and as president, Bush and first lady Barbara Bush attended the 1990 ceremony marking completion of the cathedral after 83 years of construction. Today, two of his children are members of the cathedral congregation.The 11 a.m. service Dec. 5 with be the fourth presidential funeral held at the cathedral. The family selected as officiants Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Washington Bishop Mariann Budde, the cathedral’s Dean Randy Hollerith, and the Rev. Russell Levenson Jr., rector of Bush’s Houston congregation. Levenson also will preach at the service.“Beyond the political achievements and historic accolades, President Bush was committed most to his family and his faith. He and his beloved Barbara poured their love into their children and raised them in faith,” Budde and Hollerith said in a joint statement. “George and Barbara Bush’s example of mutual devotion, fidelity, and commitment is inspiring, and it should give everyone great joy to know that Mr. and Mrs. Bush’s love continues into eternity.”The president’s son, former President George W. Bush, will be among the eulogists at the funeral. The others will be former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson and Bush biographer Jon Meacham, according to the order of service.In addition to the late president’s son, Presidents Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter are due to attend the funeral, as well as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, CNN reported.The service is expected to draw a capacity, invitation-only crowd of up to 3,000 people, including family members, senators, representatives, Supreme Court justices, Trump administration officials, diplomats and foreign dignitaries, with U.S. Secret Service establishing security protocols, cathedral spokesman Kevin Eckstrom told Episcopal News Service.“Easter and Christmas, as complicated as they can be, feel pretty routine compared to something like this,” Eckstrom said.The last funeral at Washington National Cathedral to approach such significance was the service for U.S. Sen. John McCain on Sept. 1. But a state funeral is an honor reserved for presidents, part of a series of tributes coordinated by the U.S. Department of Defense as a final sendoff for the former commander-in-chief.“We, the men and women of the Department of Defense, are honored and proud to support the Bush family and will do so with the utmost respect,” Major Gen. Michael L. Howard, the commanding general of the Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region, said in a written statement. “This state funeral is a culmination of years of planning and rehearsal to ensure the support the military renders President Bush is nothing less than a first-class tribute.”Former President George H.W. Bush gives a eulogy at President Ronald Reagan’s state funeral June 11, 2004, at Washington National Cathedral. Photo: White House archivesThe previous three state funerals at the cathedral were President Dwight Eisenhower in 1969, President Ronald Reagan in 2004 and President Gerald Ford in 2007. Bush gave eulogies at Reagan’s and Ford’s funerals at the cathedral. President Woodrow Wilson is entombed at the cathedral, but his 1924 burial service was not a state funeral.“It is a sacred rite. It is a church service, and it has to be a good experience for everybody inside the building, but particularly the family,” Eckstrom said. “At the same time, this is also a global news event, so everything is done with an eye to what it is going to look like on TV.”ABC has long been the TV network designated to provide the pool feed for high-profile events like this at the cathedral, and by Dec. 3, the network had three tractor-trailers filled with equipment on the grounds in preparation.The local TV station WTOP reported on the clutter of microphones, tripods, TV monitors and wires at the cathedral as a worker was being suspended in the air to hang spotlights overlooking an altar that had been labeled a “stage.”The cathedral staff is mobilizing to complete its part of this multilayered puzzle of preparations, such as printing about 5,000 leaflets with the order of service and ensuring they are delivered before the Secret Service closes the building for a security sweep.Read the order of service here.Eckstrom said the funeral will adhere closely to the Book of Common Prayer, and the hymns will be familiar to anyone who picks up The Hymnal 1982 from the pew in an Episcopal congregation each Sunday.“This [state funeral] probably has more of an Episcopal flavor to it than some of the others might,” he said, given Bush’s Episcopal faith.As a child in Connecticut, Bush attended Christ Episcopal Church in Greenwich, and his mother would read to him from the Book of Common Prayer, according to the Washington Post report on his faith.“He was Episcopalian by tradition. His mother was extremely devout, read all the books. And he loved his mother and so he loved the tradition,” author Doug Wead told the Washington Post, adding that Bush also pointed to his service as a naval aviator in World War II as pivotal to his faith development.After moving to Texas as an adult, Bush at first attended a Presbyterian church with his wife before the couple settled in Houston and joined St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.As vice president, Bush met with Episcopal leaders, including Presiding Bishop John Allin, who in February 1982 raised concerns with him about a recent postage rate hike.“I am grateful for the vice president’s interest,” Allin said in an ENS story. “The postal increase was one of the matters we discussed, and I am grateful that he made the time for the talk available. I am hopeful that something will be done.”Vice President George Bush speaks to General Convention in 1982. Photo: Episcopal Church archiveLater in 1982, when Bush addressed the Episcopal Church’s General Convention in New Orleans, the speech reportedly proved controversial for its remarks in defense of the Reagan administration’s arms policy.“Vice President George Bush assured nearly 3,000 of his fellow Episcopalians of governmental desires for peace as he addressed a special session of the 67th General Convention of the Episcopal Church,” the caption said on an archival photo from that speech.As president, he attended services at St. John’s Episcopal Church, across Lafayette Square from the White House. In December 1990, during the run-up to the Persian Gulf War, he met with then Presiding Bishop Ed Browning, who recommended restraint.“I really believe in the deepest part of my conviction that God does not desire this kind of destruction,” Browning said, according to an Associated Press report at the time.Bush countered by presenting an Amnesty International report on atrocities by Iraq against Kuwaitis and asked Browning if doing nothing would be morally worse.“His own faith was sincere and deep and rooted in the Episcopal Church,” Budde told ENS in an interview. She also referenced correspondence she discovered between Bush and Walker, including letters in which the bishop and the vice president debated the proper way to respond to apartheid in South Africa.Bush “was a good colleague, I would even say friend, to Bishop John Walker. Their tenures coincided,” Budde said. Walker served the Diocese of Washington until his death in 1989.Bush will be buried after a private service scheduled for 4:15 p.m. Dec. 6 at the George Bush Presidential Library & Museum in College Station, Texas. Barbara Bush, who died April 17, was buried there earlier this year after a funeral attended by a crowd of mourners at St. Martin’s, the largest congregation in the Episcopal Church. The Bushes were married 73 years.St. Martin’s also is scheduled to hold a funeral service for the former president at 11 a.m. Dec. 6 after his remains are returned to Texas.First, he will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol through the day on Dec. 4.On Dec. 5, the casket will leave the Capitol in time for the funeral at Washington National Cathedral, which will air on all major broadcast TV and cable news networks and will be livestreamed by various websites, including C-SPAN.“Through his enduring commitment to public service and his steadfast devotion to his family, he lived the way of Jesus through a life shaped by faith, hope and, above all, love,” Curry said in a tribute to Bush issued Dec. 1. “Through his unswerving service to our country and to the human community around the globe, he embodied the noblest ideals of his faith and his country.“President Bush will be an enduring reminder that virtues like kindness, gentleness and goodness are among the things that truly endure, and that chart the way to our living as the human family of God. In him we have beheld a great soul, and been reminded of the hope that, by God’s grace, we can live likewise.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Weed Control and Nitrogen Application Top Fieldwork Priorities

first_img SHARE Weed Control and Nitrogen Application Top Fieldwork Priorities By Eric Pfeiffer – Apr 14, 2021 SHARE Facebook Twitter As you’re moving through fieldwork this spring, Pioneer Field Agronomist Ben Jacob says his top priorities are nitrogen application and weed control.As for nitrogen application, Jacob says, “If you’re putting down anhydrous, it needs to be separated from the seed either by space or time. So, if you have an opportunity to do that through both means, that’s always preferable to limit your risk of crop injury.Weed control has been a hot topic heading into planting season, and Jacob says weeds are certainly popping up and causing problems.“There are a lot of fields, depending on whether there was a residual or burndown in the fall, that have greened up or, in a lot of cases, they’re purple. Keep in mind that some of those weed species are alternative hosts for crop pests like cyst nematode, and they can harbor black cutworm moths- they’ll lay eggs in them. So, you can eliminate some pest control pest concerns, or reduce pest concerns later, if your weed control program is up to snuff.”Tune in to my full interview with Pioneer Field Agronomist Ben Jacob below where he discusses more in-depth the importance of weed control and also planting considerations.Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/ben-jacob-041221.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Fort Worth’s first community fridge program helps serve vulnerable neighborhoods Student Veterans Alliance will be displaying yellow ribbons starting Nov. 6 to kick off Veterans Week at TCU.Since 2010 the organization has adorned trees lining University Drive with yellow ribbons to honor current and former members of the Armed Forces.William Howe, president of Student Veterans Alliance, said the symbolization of yellow ribbons could be traced back four hundred years to a song called “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.”“The song talks about a woman who is being tested as she waits for her loved one to return to her and uses the ribbon to symbolize her devotion,” Howe said.He said the military has never officially adopted yellow ribbons as part of its uniforms, but wearing yellow ribbons symbolizes support of soldiers away from home, as well as for those who have served.“After 9/11 during deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, many car magnets were sold in the shape of yellow ribbons so individuals could show support for the military and demonstrate solidarity with the war,” Howe said. “It is simply a way to honor veterans.”April Brown, director of Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services and a Marine veteran, said to her yellow ribbons represent support for military members and their families.“It honors any person serving in the military whether they’re currently serving, retired, deployed or never been deployed,” Brown said. “It’s just a way to say this is the veteran or service member I want to honor.”The display of yellow ribbons is part of Veterans Week at TCU, which will take place Nov. 9-13 and offer various ceremonies, speeches and a screening of “American Sniper” on Veterans Day.A full list of Veterans Week events can be found below.A list of events for Veterans Week at TCU + posts Previous articleLIVE: Chancellor hosts student town hall meetingNext articleJROTC cadets work concessions at TCU football games Hakim Zakaria RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Jordan Mazurek tying a yellow ribbon around a tree for Veterans Week at TCU.

After six years in prison, journalist is banished to remote city

first_imgNews News RSF_en News IranMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders condemns the way the Iranian authorities are continuing to persecute the well-known journalist Ahmad Zeydabadi, banishing him to the northeastern city of Gonabad after he was released from prison yesterday on completing a six-year jail sentence.

Organisation March 18, 2021 Find out more Aged 50 and the father of three children, Zeydabadi was arrested on 14 June 2009, two days after then President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection. A victim of one of the Stalinist-style show trials in Tehran in August 2009, he was sentenced the following November to six years in prison followed by five years of internal exile in Gonabad and a ban on political and journalistic activities.He was transferred directly to Gonabad on being released yesterday.“Yet again, we condemn the iniquity of the Iranian judicial system and its attacks on freedom of information,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran/Afghanistan desk.“The Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the world’s most oppressive countries. It does not limit itself to arbitrary arrests and sentences, but also imposes ‘complementary sentences’ on its citizens with the aim of silencing them forever. Such sentences violate articles 12 and 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Iran is a party.”Moini added: “Zeydabadi should be able to live with his family and should be free to work.”Zeydabadi has a long history of persecution. He was repeatedly the target of summonses and arrests in 2000, 2003 and 2007. He was even jailed for writing an open letter to Ayatollah Khamenei entitled “Why cannot we criticize the Supreme Leader’s actions?”As a result of this letter, he was placed in solitary confinement in Section 209 of Tehran’s Evin prison and subjected to a great deal or pressure by intelligence ministry interrogators, who tried in vain to extract a confession and pubic apology to the Supreme Leader.An emblematic journalist, Zeydabadi worked for many newspapers including Etéla’at in 1998 and Hamshahri until 2002. He received the Golden Pen of Freedom Award from the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) in 2009 and the UNESCO / Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize in 2011.

Publicans lodge application to open on Good Friday

first_imgNewsLocal NewsPublicans lodge application to open on Good FridayBy admin – March 15, 2010 715 LIMERICK publicans have lodged their application to the Court Services offices for a special six hour exemption for Good Friday to coincide with the much anticipated Munster versus Leinster Magners League game match scheduled for Thomond Park. The application, to be heard on Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Tuesday March 23 next at Limerick District Court, will seek that the presiding judge grant a six hour special exemption to allow publicans open their premises and trade on a day that normally prevents them from legally opening. Dave Hickey, Vintners spokesperson has said that hopes the application will be successful on behalf of the 60 licensed Vintners in Limerick. The Vintners met this Monday at the Strand Hotel to formulate the application and to take legal advice surrounding the legal challenge.

Should this groundbreaking application be granted, close to 100 pubs within Limerick could be the only licensed premised open in the country on Good Friday, April 2.
