first_imgStock market crash: I’d invest £500 a month Kevin Godbold | Monday, 6th April, 2020 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address The stock market crash happened just in time for ISA season. Today, we all have a new £20,000 allowance and I’d use mine in a Stocks and Shares ISA.It never feels comfortable to invest in shares when the market has been crashing. But we can often make good returns as shares recover from a depressed state. 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…Mixed short-term stock market outcomesBut with so much volatility in the markets, we can end up with mixed results, at least in the short term. For example, some shares have been tearing upwards since spiking down recently, such as YouGov, British American Tobacco, Spirent Communications, Plus 500 and BP. And some shares have continued to fall since the coronavirus pandemic hit, such as HSBC, Vistry, Lloyds, Norcros and Gately.I reckon the key to successful and worry-free investing now is to adopt a long-term horizon. Share price movements in the short-term will likely seem insignificant when viewed from 10 years or so in the future. And we can also mitigate some of the effects of market volatility by drip-feeding money into shares rather than investing a lump sum all at once.And I’d aim to invest around £500 each month. In that way, even with shares moving up and down, I’d never invest all my money at the highs or at the lows. In the end, such pound-cost averaging will likely work to produce a satisfactory long-term investing outcome.However, we have the ‘problem’ of picking the ‘right’ shares. And, at times such as these, it can be tough to make successful share picks. But with a generally depressed stock market such as this, I’d be inclined to go for a collective investment vehicle, such as an index tracker fund.Several advantagesThere are several advantages to such instruments. Firstly, the monthly investment thresholds tend to be low and most trackers will accommodate a £500 per month investment. Secondly, running fees are low – typically less than 0.5% — which makes your investment cost-efficient. Thirdly, you’ll gain instant diversification with your investment spread across many underlying shares.And diversification like that is a strong advantage in these markets. Market set-backs and economic recessions can damage some stocks irreparably – think banks after 2008, for example. But by diversifying widely in a tracker fund, you’ll avoid the risk of having a great deal of your money tied to the performance of one duff share.I’d go for an FTSE 100 tracker fund because it has cyclical firms in its makeup, which have strong bounce-back potential. And I also see the Footsie as having the potential to pay a large dividend yield. But I also like the FTSE 250 index of mid-cap shares for its growth potential. And America’s S&P 500, which has undeniable previous form.But you can choose between many trackers these days. And I’d be sure to select the accumulation version of each fund so that dividends are automatically rolled back in to compound my investment.

Homeowners will receive their own notification from Duke Energy prior to planned trimming events.Typically, crews start at the substation and work their way out/down the line. The tree crews will be cleaning up all debris associated with maintenance activities. However, debris resulting from storm damage or other events unrelated to maintenance activities is the responsibility of the homeowners. Part of the pruning activity will occur on lateral lines, some of which will require climbing in rear lot areas. This notification constitutes the notice required by Florida Statute 163.3209 from Duke Energy.Trees are a leading cause of power outages. Duke Energy’s progressive tree care practices help minimize outages during storms, where it works to balance needs for reliable electric power with sensitivity for the environment. Duke Energy Florida has been recognized for its tree care practices with the distinctive Tree Line USA designation from The National Arbor Day Foundation for 13 consecutive years. Duke Energy works to balance the need for reliable electric power with sensitivity for the environment and tree health.

Cork House is the first of its kind, with monolithic walls and corbelled roof pyramids made almost entirely from solid load-bearing cork.  Its distinctive structural form and rich sensory environments are the results of a whole life approach to architecture, in which environmental sustainability is embedded into every stage of a building’s lifecycle. With a focus on what is solid, simple, and sustainable, the project is an inventive response to the complexities and conventions of modern house construction. Save this picture!Floor planSave this picture!ElevationRather than the typical complex, layered building envelope incorporating an array of building products and systems, Cork House is the result of an attempt to radically simplify the building envelope.   Designed and built as a prefabricated kit-of-parts, blocks of expanded cork are easily assembled by hand without mortar or glue, like an oversized organic Lego® system.  This highly innovative form of plant-based construction has resulted in a building that is carbon negative at completion with extremely low whole-life carbon of 619kgCO2e/m2 (as assessed by Sturgis Carbon Profiling to British Standard BS EN 15978).Save this picture!© Ricky JonesThe house uses an evolved version of a construction system researched, tested, and developed by MPH Architects, The Bartlett School of Architecture UCL, University of Bath, Amorim UK and Ty-Mawr, with subcontractors including Arup and BRE. The research was part-funded by Innovate UK and EPSRC under the 2015 Building Whole Life Performance funding competition.  The R&D process included in-depth laboratory tests for structural performance, rain penetration, and fire, with two prototype structures, used to establish the real-life performance of the construction system.Save this picture!© Magnus DennisThe research project also developed a method of off-site prefabrication, with blocks for the house machined on a large-scale 5-axis CNC milling machine. Cork House embodies a strong whole life approach to sustainability, from resource through to end-of-life.  Expanded cork is a pure plant-based material made with a by-product of cork forestry.  The bark of the cork oak is harvested by hand every nine years without harming the tree or disturbing the forest.  This gentle agro-industry sustains the Mediterranean cork oak landscapes, providing a rich biodiverse habitat that is widely recognised.Save this picture!© Magnus DennisSave this picture!© Ricky JonesThis compelling ecological origin of expanded cork is mirrored at the opposite end of the building’s lifecycle.  The construction system is dry-jointed, so that all 1,268 blocks of cork can be reclaimed at end-of-building-life for re-use, recycling, or returning to the biosphere. From this mix of architectural and ecological objectives, the resultant structural form is new and yet familiar – a progressive reimagining of the simple construction principles of ancient stone structures such as Celtic beehive houses.  The sheltering interiors are organised according to the rhythm of the pyramids, with a weathered entrance bay at the end that also acts as a gateway between gardens and an antechamber to the house itself.  The exposed solid cork creates an evocative sensory environment – walls are gentle to the touch and even smell good, the acoustic is soft and calm, and copper pipes gleam in the shadows of the corbelled roof pyramids. center_img Area:  75 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938586/cork-house-matthew-barnett-howland-plus-dido-milne-plus-oliver-wilton Clipboard Arup Houses Landscape: Whole Life Carbon Assessment: Sturgis Carbon Profiling LLP United Kingdom CopyAbout this officeMatthew Barnett HowlandOfficeFollowDido MilneOfficeFollowOliver WiltonOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnglandOn InstagramOn FacebookEtonUnited KingdomPublished on May 04, 2020Cite: “Cork House / Matthew Barnett Howland + Dido Milne + Oliver Wilton” 04 May 2020.

first_img SHARE 2017: A Rocky Road Ahead By Gary Truitt – Jan 9, 2017 Home Commentary 2017: A Rocky Road Ahead Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Farm Bureau Receives Award of ExcellenceNext articleClimate Corp gets Aggressive with R&D Gary Truitt SHARE Rocky Road ice cream was invented in 1929. Two California ice cream makers put walnuts and marshmallows in their chocolate ice cream as a way of helping people smile during the Great Depression. While the current economic downturn in the farm economy is not the Great Depression, we are going to need some reasons to smile in 2017. And, frankly, agriculture will be facing a rocky road over the next few years.Not only are livestock and grain farmers facing another year with little or no prospects for profits, interest rates are on the rise which means the money you need to borrow will cost you more. It against this backdrop that a new group of lawmakers with a new attitude and mandate will start discussing future farm policy.The 115th Congress is back in Washington and will begin work on a new Farm Bill this session. This is a Farm Bill that will determine what kind of safety net farmers will have for the next several years.  This rocky road may be especially difficult to navigate because fiscal conservatives in Congress, most of whom are from urban districts, are very anxious to take a whack at farm program costs.The Trump White House will also be looking for ways to reduce the size of government. So, cutting farm programs like crop insurance and conservation programs may be tempting. The Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) will also face new attacks from the oil lobby as well as conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation, a powerful lobby group that supports free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.Last time around, a Congressional food fight over funding for SNAP, the food assistance program, almost sank the Farm Bill.   This program will again likely come under attack. Agriculture needs to support the nutrition title and keep it as part of the Farm Bill. While there is a growing awareness in farm organizations that agriculture needs to build coalitions with supporters of SNAP, it is not universal. Like it or not, the future of the Farm Bill is tied to the success of the Nutrition title.  If farmers want support for farm programs, the RFS, and conservation, they will need to support SNAP, WIC, school lunches, and efforts to address food deserts.It is going to take a level of unity and advocacy by agriculture that we have not seen before to navigate the rocky road ahead. Not only will we need to build consensus within agriculture, we will have to learn how to work with other groups with which we may not be comfortable.The actual inventor of Rocky Road ice cream is disputed. Several different ice creams makers claim to have been first.  Hopefully, agriculture can find a bit more unity or 2017 will indeed be a very rocky road.By Gary Truitt Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

But City Manager David Cooke said Fort Worth Transit doesn’t use money from that department.“Transit ain’t getting cut at all,” Cooke said. “They don’t really get any money from the city anyway.”Cooke said money for Fort Worth Transit comes from a half-cent sales tax.“So if that half cent sales tax grows, which it is, that’s the money that they get to use to do TEX rail, TRE, and all the buses that operate in Fort Worth,” Cooke said. “So they’re not getting cut, and that revenue stream is growing.”Cooke said some of the money that was cut from the Transportation and Public Works department will be going to the Capital Project Fund.“It’s capital money which means we’re going to use it to build stuff and fix stuff,” Cooke said. “So we’re gonna appropriate it directly to the capital project budget as opposed to showing it in [Transportation and Public Works] and then transferring it to the capital project fund.”Cooke said the capital project fund can be used on public transit.Michael Bennett, representative of the Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth, said better transportation is crucial to the city’s economic development.“As we in the real estate council look at the future of our city and as we look at where we’re headed we’re worried that we’re gonna be gridlocked and we’re worried that that’s going to take us off that wonderful upward climb that we have,” Bennett said.The final budget will be considered by City Council Sept. 13.

first_imgLatest Stories Gibson called the “Celebration of the Arts” ceremony “just an unbelievable night.”“Have you ever been humbled and humbled again?” Gibson said. “I was humbled by the award and humbled again to be among the other recipients. I was riding down in the elevator with them and I told them that, looking at all they have done to promote and secure the arts in Alabama, I was humbled to be among them.”Troy Mayor Jason A. Reeves said Gibson’s persistence and dedication to the “post office project” was rooted in his innate love of the arts, his love of his community and its people and his strong belief that, when a city promotes arts and culture, good things begin to happen. Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “The Johnson Center has taken a new direction with its vision for our second decade,” he said. “Our vision is for the Johnson Center to, not only be a place where we hang art, but also a place where people hang their hats. We are going to focus more on community. We want the Johnson Center to be a part of the lives of the people of our community. And, we want the arts center to be a place where people from all over come to enrich their lives through the arts.”Gibson said the Johnson Center is a place that the people of Pike County can claim as their own.“We don’t have to run to Montgomery, Birmingham or Atlanta to enjoy the arts,” he said. “We can embrace the arts right here at home. That makes me proud and humbles me at the same time.”Messenger Photo/Jaine TreadwellA large gathering of Trojans attended the “Celebration of the Arts” gala Wednesday in support of Mack Gibson who received a 2015 State Arts Award. Gibson is pictured with a group of his supporters during the reception that followed the ceremony at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins said Troy University and the City of Troy enjoy a strong “town-gown” partnership in the fine arts and Mack Gibson stands at the forefront of that partnership.“Mack’s leadership has assured that generations of Trojans have been exposed to outstanding performances and exhibits at both the university and in the community, thus developing an appreciation for culture that lasts a lifetime,” Hawkins said. “Troy University could have no better partner than Mack Gibson.”Vicki Pritchett, Johnson Center executive director, said Gibson’s success with the cultural arts project can be attributed to his love of arts and culture and his love of people.“However, it’s Mack’s financial expertise, persistence, passion and enthusiasm for the project that keeps him and the board focused,” she said. “To quote Mack, ‘People in Troy and Pike County are passionate about the arts. Together, we are planting seeds that will grow a forest.’”Rick Hall, Florence/Muscle Shoals, and Winston Groom, Mobile/Point, joined Gibson as recipients of The Governor’s Arts Awards.Other awards and awardees are: The Alabama Folk Heritage Award – Herb Trotman, Birmingham; The Distinguished Artist Award – Dr. Everett McCorvey, Montgomery/Lexington, Kentucky; The Jonnie Dee Riley Little Lifetime Achievement Award – Theresa Harper Bruno, Birmingham; and The Special Council Award – Jim Hudson, Huntsville.

Our goal was to have an arts center where people of all ages could come and broaden their minds … and we’ve done it.”A large group of Troy arts enthusiasts attended the “Celebration of the Arts” awards program. Gibson said their presence gave him a warm feeling about what has been accomplished through the Johnson Center for the Arts.“The future looks bright for the Johnson Center as we are finding more ways to bring people to the arts center complex that includes the Johnson Center, The Studio and the Annex,” he said. “We are building our own culture.”Gibson said plans are to continue to expand the Johnson Center’s ArtBridges program, which is an arts education initiative, and for the Annex to become a center of study for the visual and performing arts.
