2 reopening stocks I’d buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA today

first_img2 reopening stocks I’d buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA today Royston Wild | Thursday, 29th April, 2021 The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… UK share prices are back on the march and demand for reopening stocks specifically is soaring. These sort of cyclical shares are ones that theoretically will benefit the most from the end of Covid-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions.The FTSE 100 has just moved back through the 7,000-point marker again in Thursday trading. The fall of this important technical and psychological barrier gives another chance for UK share prices to move significantly higher in the days and weeks ahead.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…Clearly the fight against Covid-19 still has much further to run. So I’m not getting too carried away by this fresh rally. Setbacks in the pandemic battle aren’t the only things that could put the prices of so-called reopening shares back on the defensive either. Fears over rising inflation and concerns over resurgent trade wars between major economies also have the capacity to smack UK share prices.Why I’m hunting for reopening stocksHaving said that, I’ve been scouting for top reopening stocks to buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA. The fight against Covid-19 — and as a consequence the bounceback in the global economy — might not follow a straight line from bottom left to top right. But history suggests that the world will recover from this pandemic. And I plan to make some great returns with some choice UK shares in the process.Here are two top reopening stocks on my radar today:1) Marketing mammothStrong economic data from the US has put marketing products supplier 4Imprint Group firmly on my radar. Commerce Department data this lunchtime showed economic growth in the States clock in at 6.4% in the first quarter. This was up from 4.8% in the prior three months and reflects the impact of Covid-19 vaccines and massive stimulus packages there. This bodes well for 4Imprint Group as this reopening stock sources almost all revenues from the US. Be aware, though, that sales at 4Imprint Group could disappoint if the marketing approach of some companies begins to change, causing demand for the UK share’s logo-printed pens, cups, sweaters and similar paraphernalia to struggle.2) A top UK retail shareHalfords Group is another top reopening stock to buy in my opinion. The Covid-19 vaccine rollout in the UK has been particularly impressive. This means that the chances of this UK retail share dumping customer limits in its stores and keeping them junked looks good. I also think the end of coronavirus restrictions and travel restrictions should boost servicing and MOT activity at its Autocentres, as well as sales of its car accessories in store, as people hit the road in large numbers again. One possible fly in the ointment could be a sudden fall in demand for its cycles and cycling accessories, though. The mass reopening of gyms could see people ditch cycling and jump on the treadmill or weights rack instead.

The Woodard Residence is a personal residence for a developer on an unused piece of land left from his recently completed mixed-use development. The clients sought to be tucked away from activity, but maintain views of the Mississippi River and the downtown Memphis skyline. Save this picture!© Hank Mardukas PhotographyThis urban residence is situated within a mixed-use development between the South Main Historic Arts District and the Mississippi River bluff. The small lot was carved from a recently completed development including a re-purposed warehouse into offices and four attached townhomes. The 3,750 sf home consists of four levels – a ground floor garage/office, a second floor suite for the client’s mother and her caregiver, living and kitchen on the third, and a master suite on the fourth floor. The compact site exists between a railroad overpass to the North and an alley to the East, allowing shared vehicular access to the home. The overall massing is broken down using durable and low maintenance materials. A corten clad rectangular form rests atop a ground-face masonry base. The corten volume is further articulated with a series of large scale carves that form balconies and window openings that frame views. Planar elements clad in charcoal standing seam metal encase the circulation wing and fourth floor master suite and employ glass and charred wood infill. A large projection on the West is an external expression of the intersection between the main mass and circulation wing. Positioning the circulation wing perpendicular to the main volume maximizes the interior space, takes advantage of the triangular shaped lot and provides lateral stability for the four-story structure. This articulation of the mass mediates the various scales and materiality of the surrounding industrial context and allows the interior programmatic elements to be a clear expression on the exterior. Save this picture!© Hank Mardukas PhotographyThe final construction cost was $960,000, or $256/sf (based on conditioned sf). Consultants for the project included Haltom Engineering for mechanical and Ozeryansky Structural Engineering. Woodard Properties was the general contractor for this project.

Designed as a relaxation space and spatially planned as an outhouse that is architecturally unique and different from any other structure of the city, the inspiration of this home is from the tropical houses of Singapore. Designed with a tropical concept, therefore, the house is the result of the client’s brief with a similar approach adopted for the interiors too. A clean and simplistic plan determines the spatial planning of this oasis within a huge landscaped area with lush greenery A House in the Garden, the lower floor accommodates living areas and rooms for servants while the first floor accommodates a swimming pool, a baby pool, and a formal living / dining space and kitchen.Save this picture!© PhotographixEach of the living areas opens up to the pool and the greens outside by means of decks and verandahs, creating a spatial hierarchy of open, semi-open and covered spaces. The swimming pool, being on the first floor keeps the overall sense of privacy- deemed crucial in the Indian culture intact. Upon reaching the second floor, all bedrooms are located here, each with its own private balcony that optimizes the surrounding views while creating private, semi-open spaces. All open and covered spaces are reminiscent of the tropical openness and open themselves up to optimize the naturesque surroundings.Save this picture!Higher Ground Floor Plan A multi-triangular roof anchors the project, giving it a unique identity and become symbolic of its tropical intent. While the implementation of the roof was a challenge, through specific marking of the center points of each roof, this unique structure has been achieved to perfection. Other challenges of execution such as a high water level in the footing and the location of the swimming pool, etc, were all overcome through stringent construction processes. The weight of the entire first floor was carefully calculated and implemented thereafter. Weight, leakage, and privacy were the three issues to be taken care of during swimming pool design and implementation. Save this picture!© PhotographixThe interiors adopt the same tropical approach, improvised in an Indian context. Indian Black Marble with different finishes, i.e., Riverwash, Sandblast, and Leather wash is used for the external facade to diversify its aesthetics. Mild Steel, a commonly used construction material is used in the cladding of the columns, which is not a common adaption of the material. The fins surrounding the entire structure are made of rusted iron, in order to endow it with a rustic look and augment the earthy aesthetics.Save this picture!© PhotographixProject gallerySee allShow lessEeStairs Headquarters / Bronsvoort Blaak ArchitectenSelected ProjectsLEEGE Office / RAMOPRIMOSelected Projects Share Year:  Gable House / B.DESIGN24 STUDIOSave this projectSaveGable House / B.DESIGN24 STUDIO Architects: B.DESIGN24 STUDIO Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Photographix+ 29Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Angle Consultancy Manufacturers: Kohler, Leela Laxmi, Luxury living, Ramanand nissad, Zoomer house ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/900182/gable-house-esign24-studio Clipboard India “COPY” Photographs Projects CopyAbout this officeB.DESIGN24 STUDIOOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSuratIndiaPublished on August 18, 2018Cite: “Gable House / B.DESIGN24 STUDIO” 17 Aug 2018.

Disease and Insects Take Aim at Indiana Crops

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Disease and Insects Take Aim at Indiana Crops By Gary Truitt – May 17, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News Disease and Insects Take Aim at Indiana Crops Disease and Insects Take Aim at Indiana CropsWhile planting continues this week, disease and insects are taking aim at the crops that are already in the ground.  The cold, wet weather that arrived just after much of our early corn was planted is fostering seedling disease in many areas, according to Brian Early with Dupont Pioneer. “It should start to show up in corn by the end of this week or early next,” he said. “The disease will attack the mesocotyl between the seed and the upper part of the plant. Generally, it will look like a good stand, and then it will start to go backward as the disease eats on that connecting tissue.”  Some soil borne diseases are already showing up in early planted soybeans.Meanwhile, information from Purdue indicates that black cutworm pressure will be significant this year. Early says that activity is already taking place in Southern Indiana, “It takes about 300 growing degree units for that to happen, so we are seeing some cutting from black cutworms in the south and moving into central Indiana.”  He added, in the north, it will take another week for the larvae to get big enough to start cutting.Early says much of the early planted corn is not looking very good right now, but should recover, “There is a lot of corn with a very sickly yellow color, but as soon as the roots get developed it will shape up.”  Listen to the complete agronomy update under the agronomy tab.

Open letter: RSF asks Aung San Suu Kyi to get Reuters journalists released in Myanmar

first_img to go further Since the end of your time under house arrest, you have on several occasions said that you reject the status of icon and that you see yourself as a politician seeking concrete results for her people. We are aware of the political circumstances in Myanmar that force you to seek compromises with the Tatmadaw’s representatives. May 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation Minister of Foreign Affairs Help by sharing this information Paris, 6 September 2018 News An iniquitous sentence of seven years in prison on a trumped-up charge of violating the Official Secrets Acts was passed at the start of this week on Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, two reporters with the Reuters news agency who have already spent nearly nine months in detention. Sincerely, News As you know, the two reporters were crudely framed by the police, as a police captain, Moe Yan Naing, acknowledged in court on 20 April. The thoroughness of their investigative reporting nonetheless forced the Tatmadaw, Myanmar armed forces, to recognize the reality of the Inn Dinn massacre and to sentence seven soldiers to ten years in prison for their role. We are deeply saddened by your only statement about the two journalists. In an interview for NHK in June, you simply said that “they were nor arrested for covering the Rakhine issue” but “because they broke the Official Secrets Act” and that it “will be up to judiciary, it is for the judiciary to decide.” Their innocence was nonetheless glaringly obvious. Daw Aung San Suu KyiSign the petition to free Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo ! US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture Dear State Counsellor, Their only crime was to investigate the September 2017 massacre of ten Rohingya civilians by members of Myanmar’s army. In the course of shedding light on the terrible reality of the ethnic cleansing carried out by the army and its auxiliaries in the north of Rakhine State, the news agency’s reporters discovered summary executions, mass graves, the torching of villages and systematic efforts to eliminate of all trace of the atrocities.

One of your closest allies, President Win Myint, has the power to grant them a pardon. How are we to understand the sentence passed on these two journalists at the start of the week? What credibility can the rule of law and judicial independence have in Myanmar after this farce? To those who have tried to raise the issue in your presence, you have responded with “fury,” as in January with former US diplomat Bill Richardson, one of your oldest supporters, who felt obliged to resign from your international panel of advisers after you described Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo as “traitors.” Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar RSF wrote to you on 7 September 2017 asking you to use your moral authority to ensure that journalists were free to work in Myanmar. Your response was silence. Your response to the appeals of Myanmar’s journalists and foreign journalists was silence. Your response to the international community’s appeals was silence. Christophe Deloire Secretary-General September 6, 2018 – Updated on September 11, 2018 Open letter: RSF asks Aung San Suu Kyi to get Reuters journalists released in Myanmar State Counsellor News But nothing, absolutely nothing, forces you, as the Union of Myanmar’s head of government, to observe this deafening silence.

Minister of the President’s Office Five days after Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were sentenced to seven years in prison on a trumped-up charge, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has written to the head of Myanmar’s government asking her to end her deafening silence and to intercede on behalf of the two journalists.
