I’d invest £1k in these top UK shares in the stock market crash

first_img 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. Just under two months ago, the stock market tanked, marking the first bear market for more than a decade. Many top UK shares saw substantial amounts wiped from their valuations.Since then, many stocks have staged noticeable rebounds. Regardless of whether this is the beginning of a new bull market, or there’s a further drop to come, I’d invest £1k in these top UK shares to ensure I don’t miss out on attractive returns over the long term.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…HalmaHalma (LSE: HLMA) is a global group composed of life-saving technology companies. These companies specialise in making products geared towards hazard and life protection.The group’s share price has staged an impressive bounce-back and is now only down by 5% since its mid-February high. That’s a remarkable comeback considering the price had fallen by 25% in the depths of the stock market crash.It’s worth noting that shares in Halma don’t come cheap. The price-to-earnings ratio is relatively high at around 40. That figure may be off-putting for value investors, but I think it reflects the persistent bright growth prospects of the company.In the Asia Pacific and North America regions, the group is benefiting financially from numerous acquisitions and has plans for more on the horizon. This will be a key driver of growth moving forward, particularly in the expanding Apac market.In a results release towards the end of 2019, Halma reported record revenue, profits and dividends, up 12%, 14% and 7% respectively. What’s more, there was revenue growth in all four major regions and sectors. That’s an impressive set of results.And in a mid-March trading statement, it accepted that the Covid-19 outbreak will have an impact on business. Early estimates knock £5m-£10m off forecast adjusted profits, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the true figure is much higher.Despite this, the group’s financial position is robust, with plenty of cash and a strong balance sheet.This should be more than enough to see the company through the current crisis, and if so, I expect attractive returns stemming from further growth inspired by an innovative business strategy. A top UK share in my eyes.JD SportsSports-fashion retail giant JD Sports (LSE: JD) is a much-loved high street name. The company has shops around the world, including in Europe, the US, Asia and Australia.The FTSE 100 constituent has experienced exponential growth in its share price over the last five years, increasing by 653% until the stock market crash. However, since the onset of the bear market, the share price has fallen by 43% in light of fears over the impact of Covid-19 on business.Just weeks ago, the retailer closed shops across Europe. While business continues as usual on the company’s website, the impact on earnings will be palpable. The company has stated that online sales will only offer a small mitigation in terms of overall profit contribution.However, JD’s financial performance was exceptional last year. Revenue grew by 49% and profit before tax increased by 15%. Additionally, the company’s dividend increased from 1.63p to 1.71p.More importantly, the company confirms that it maintains a strong balance sheet, net cash resources and sufficient working capital facilities. With that in mind, I expect JD to safely come through the current crisis and continue growing into the future. In my opinion, it’s another top UK share.

Chris Patersons still got the gas

first_imgSunday Jan 6, 2008 Chris Patersons still got the gas Known more for his incredible kicking success rate lately, Chris Paterson showed on Saturday that he still has plenty of gas in the tank by scoring this great 50 metre try vs Bath.Paterson came on as a replacement for Ryan Lamb and with his first touch of the ball made an immediate impact. His outside break leaving the tiring Bath defence in his wake, causing the match leaders a bit of a scare with this sensational individual try.The game could have changed from there, with the score at 10-5, but Paterson, the man who didn’t miss a kick in the World Cup, ironically hit the post. Gloucester just didn’t have what it took to come back and Bath came out tops.Fantastic try, especially considering the muddy conditions, and once again it goes to show that there is no substitute for pace.

A couple who has been living in the city commissioned me to design a small house where they will live with old parents. The site had a shape inappropriate for use and significant difference between its highest and lowest levels. In most cases of planning a country house on a site lower than the road around, one levels the site up to the road before building the house.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThe planning of this project began in a similar way. However, oppositions arose from the neighborhood residents making it impossible to level up the site, so that I had to come up with another new idea. Reaching the conclusion that it is inappropriate to recklessly level up the site to build a country house but it is architecturally possible to utilize the land-form in a way that minimizes the damage of nature, I intended to suggest a new possibility through this “Train House.”Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanAs the roadside tip of this project faces the south, daylight was not enough to maintain the amenity of living. To resolve this problem, I inserted in a linear mass three courtyards with different characters as outdoor spaces to make the whole building breathe. The client’s and the parents’ living areas were spatially separated to maintain their own privacy, while the semi-porous outdoor courtyards were made to cause communication between them. The insertion of space where one can see the sky enables communication with the light everywhere in the house.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanSave this picture!Elevation 01Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThe master bedroom has its own small courtyard to ensure the couple’s independence, but also connects to the main courtyard that enables communication with the parents anytime. To the north were arranged the vestibule, restrooms, utility rooms, and the utilities so as to make functional advantage against the wind blowing from outside. The relationship that the functional unit spaces made around the outdoor space recalls a unique image that seems like the form of a long train connecting a chain of cars.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThe surface of the building is finished with exposed concrete as an expression of rough texture like the old tree bark of a Korean traditional house. Aspiring to represent natural roughness which is traditional in Korea, I conducted experiment and research on pure materiality for a long time and finally made it with carbonated exposed concrete. After all, the building gained expressive facades reflecting daylight in various angles for all day long and gradually changing the color sense and feeling of the concrete over time. I hope this small Train House with a long linear mass consisting of indoor and outdoor spaces making balanced superposition will become a proposal with another possibility in our life which has accustomed to the ordinary built spaces.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanProject gallerySee allShow lessMVRDV Unveils Images of the Tripolis Office Complex in AmsterdamArchitecture NewsNational Railway Museum Central Hall Competition Reveals 5 Final Design ConceptsArchitecture News Share 2018 Train House / ON Architecture INC.Save this projectSaveTrain House / ON Architecture INC.Save this picture!© Yoon Joonhwan+ 26Curated by Hana Abdel Share Photographs:  Yoon Joonhwan Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933652/train-house-on-architecture-inc Clipboard CopyHouses•Ulsan, South Korea “COPY” Year:  Area:  114 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933652/train-house-on-architecture-inc Clipboard South Korea “COPY” CopyAbout this officeON ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUlsanOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on February 13, 2020Cite: “Train House / ON Architecture INC.” 13 Feb 2020.

Alternative Rich List 2010 winners announced

first_imgAlternative Rich List 2010 winners announced Howard Lake | 28 September 2010 | News Tagged with: Awards Recruitment / people AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Judy Ledger, Gary Foxcroft and Virginia McKenna are the winners of the 2010 Alternative Rich List, an awards scheme designed to recognise individuals who enrich other people’s lives in ways money can’t.The winners of this, the third annual awards, were announced on Friday at forum3, the annual recruitment, networking and volunteering event for the third sector, held in London.Judy Ledger secured the public’s vote for creating the national charity Baby Lifeline, which supports pregnant women. Since its inception in 1981, Judy has raised more than £8 million and attracted the support of Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Richard Branson and Dame Judi Dench.Gary Foxcroft won in recognition of the charity he set up, Stepping Stones Nigeria, which helps to provide shelter, education, literacy, healthcare, food and hope to thousands of vulnerable children of the Niger Delta. His work has led to the rehabilitation of over 200 children as well as improved conditions for many street children.Virginia McKenna co-founded the Born Free Foundation, a charity which helps to release animals from captivity and conserve them in the wild. In 1992 she helped release the last three dolphins from UK captivity into the wild, and she is currently campaigning to end UK circuses which feature wild animals.More than 150 people were nominated for this year’s Alternative Rich List, with a shortlist of 11 being generated by a panel of not-for-profit advisers. Voting was then opened to the public.Forum3 Director Deborah Hockham said the winners were a true reflection of how everyone can contribute to creating a ‘big society.’“The 2010 Alternative Rich List was bursting with kind, self-sacrificing people who consistently put other people’s needs ahead of their own,” she said. “The three winners are truly deserving of the award, but everyone who was nominated has made a difference to the world we live in”.www.forum3.co.uk  36 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

With five months to go, repression continues but protests are growing

first_img Tomorrow there will be exactly five months left to the start of the Beijing Summer Olympics but we are still awaiting evidence of real progress in human rights and press freedom such as the release of large numbers of prisoners of conscience and an end to the censorship of the news media and the Internet. Receive email alerts ChinaAsia – Pacific News RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Tomorrow there will be exactly five months left to the start of the Beijing Summer Olympics but we are still awaiting evidence of real progress in human rights and press freedom such as the release of large numbers of prisoners of conscience and an end to the censorship of the news media and the Internet. “The way for the Chinese government to silence criticism of the human rights situation is not to crack down even more but to free prisoners of conscience and to put a stop to its repressive practices,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The success of these games now depends on the ability of the International Olympic Committee and the international community to make the Chinese organisers realise this. For our part, we will redouble our efforts over the next five months to obtain concrete progress.” The list of measures that Reporters Without Borders wants taken before the start of the games includes the release of the hundred imprisoned journalists and Internet users, an end to the censorship of news websites and an end to jamming of international radio stations.Repression continues in Beijing and throughout ChinaThe activist Hu Jia is still detained in Beijing on a charge of inciting subversion of state power. He has become the “prisoner of the Olympic Games” as his arrest was clearly linked to the stance he was taking on the games. His wife, blogger Zeng Jinyan, and their baby daughter are still subject to constant surveillance by the Beijing police. At least four other activists are being held for calling for more freedom before the games. Yang Chunlin, who started the “We want human rights, not the Olympic Games” campaign, has been tried in the northeastern city of Jiamusi. The verdict is not yet known but he faces a heavy prison sentence. His family has been threatened with reprisals if they talk to the international media. Yu Changwu and Wang Guilin, who were also involved in the campaign, were sentenced in January to reeducation through labour. Wang Guilan was arrested in Beijing on 28 February after the release of an open letter about the human rights situation with more than 12,000 signatures. According to Chinese Human Rights Defenders, the letter said: “The Olympic Games are supposed to be run according to civilised rules and with civilised people taking part. Since we are citizens of the organising country, we hope to enjoy human rights like any civilised nation.” Prison conditions for prisoners of conscience have not improved. The family of cyber-dissident Jin Haike, who was given a 10-year sentence in 2003 for being part of a pro-democracy web site led by Yang Zili, is very worried about his health after a belated operation to remove his appendix. He now suffers from abdominal pains that have not been diagnosed. Meanwhile the health of human rights lawyer and writer Yang Maodong (better known by the pseudonym of Guo Feixiong) has deteriorated in the prison in Meizhou (in Guangdong province) where he is being held. His wife, Zhang Qing, recently told Reporters Without Borders about the “physical mistreatment, including electric shocks” to which he has been subjected since his arrest a year and a half ago and the “traces of torture, five or six scars.” The health of Li Hong, a writer held in Ningbo, is also very worrying.Most political prisoners are forced to work while they are being detained.

Madras High Court Dismisses Plea Against Appointment Of Retd. Justice S. Baskaran As Chairperson Of State Human Rights Commission

first_imgNews UpdatesMadras High Court Dismisses Plea Against Appointment Of Retd. Justice S. Baskaran As Chairperson Of State Human Rights Commission Akshita Saxena29 April 2021 2:14 AMShare This – xThe Madras High Court has dismissed a petition challenging appointment of retired High Court Judge, Justice S Baskaran, as the Chairperson of the Tamil Nadu State Human Rights Commission. A Division bench comprising of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy stated that the petition is “utterly misconceived” and no further time should be wasted thereon. “These frivolous matters tend to take up substantial Court time and, more often than not, counsel furthering hopeless causes tend to dilate and seek to rely on judgments that may have no bearing on the issue at hand,” it observed. The principal grievance of the Petitioner in this case was that the post of Chairman was not advertised before appointment of Justice Baskaran. The Court however observed that unlike ordinary appointments, the position in question is a “crucial” one where appointments are primarily made by invitation. It noted that even the statute does not require any advertisement. “The Chief Minister of a State, in consultation with the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the Minister of Home and the Leader of the Opposition would choose an appropriate person to be appointed as Chairperson or others as Members of the State Commission. As long as the appointee fulfils the eligibility criteria, that would suffice,” the Bench observed. Background Justice Baskaran assumed the office of Chairperson of the Tamil Nadu State Human Rights Commission on December 31, 2020. It was the Petitioner’s case that Justice Baskaran’s appointment as the Chairperson of TN Human Rights Commission is violative of Article 14 (right to equality) and 16 (equality of opportunity in matters of public employment) of the Constitution. He contended that office of the Chairman of the State Human Rights Commission is an office under the State within the meaning of Article 16(1) of the Constitution and to fill up such post, all eligible persons should have been given an opportunity to apply therefor and should have been considered on merits. He further contended that the appointment compromises the dictum of the Supreme Court in Rojer Mathew v. South Indian Bank, (2020) 6 SCC 1, with regard to safeguards to ensure the independence of occupants of such offices. In this case, the Apex Court had cautioned against frequent appointment of Judges (sitting or retired), in a non-transparent manner. Findings The Court observed that the impugned appointment was made by an exalted Selection Committee which is ordained by the statute. Thus, the Selection Committee may discuss such names as they may choose and even if there is no advertisement issued, the process cannot be flawed. [Section 22(1) mandates that the Selection Committee for the purpose of selecting the Chairperson and the members of the State Human Rights Commission would be the Chief Minister, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the Minister in-charge of the Department of Home in that State and the Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly] “Thus, the process of appointment involves consultation between the members of the Selection Committee and the majority decision of the Selection Committee will prevail as long as the person appointed fills the eligibility criteria indicated in Section 21 read with parts of Section 22 of the Act,” the order stated.
