Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’d make a million following Warren Buffett after the stock market crash The recent stock market crash caught a lot of investors by surprise. However, following the decline, many stocks continue to trade at depressed levels. I think investors should follow Warren Buffett’s advice to make the most of these bargains, which could produce substantial total returns for investors in the years ahead. Stock market crash bargainsWarren Buffett has made his fortune by investing in high-quality businesses. He likes companies that have strong and durable competitive advantages, such as Coca-Cola. 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…There are a handful of companies in the UK market that exhibit similar qualities. One business that certainly looks as if it might conform to some of Buffett’s principles is Coca-Cola bottler Coca Cola HBC AG.The group exhibits many of the same qualities as Buffett’s favourite soft drinks company, and it has an excellent track record of returning additional cash to investors with dividends and share repurchases. Year-to-date, the stock has fallen around 20%, which suggests it could offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. Another stock market crash bargain the famous investor could be interested in is BT. Shares in the telecoms giant have been cut in half this year due to concerns about the business’s outlook. However, following this decline, the stock is trading at one of its lowest valuations in recent history. BT’s competitive advantage is its size. The company is the largest telecommunications group in the UK, and it is unlikely to lose this position. These are just the sort of hallmarks Warren Buffett looks for before making an investment. BT’s size, brand recognition, and the firm’s valuation are all reasons why Buffett might be interested in the stock. Warren Buffett’s financial stocks Over the past few years, Buffett has also started to take an interest in banks. His favourite financial stock right now is Bank of America. The investor likes this company because it’s highly profitable, has a strong brand and returns billions of dollars in cash to shareholders every year.I think Lloyds Bank exhibits similar qualities. Before the coronavirus pandemic, the lender was one of the most attractive dividend stocks in the FTSE 100. It also has one of the most robust balance sheets of any large European financial institution and most enormous profit margins. In other words, I reckon Bank of America and Lloyds are very similar businesses.As such, I think it’s likely Warren Buffett would be interested in buying part of the UK lender. After the stock market crash, shares in the bank are changing hands at a price-to-book (P/B) value of 0.4. That valuation suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. The bottom lineAll in all, I think following Warren Buffett’s approach to investing could be a sensible way to find bargains after the recent stock market crash. Indeed, all of the companies listed above look cheap compared to their historical valuations and prospects.Buying a basket of these stocks may help you build a £1m financial nest egg.  Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 11th October, 2020 Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

The opportunities and the obstacles for Pacific Islands rugby – a special report

first_imgWhen describing what it means to play for Samoa, Jack Lam says: “It’s bigger than ourselves. We always say the jerseys we wear are not our jerseys, they’re the people’s jerseys.”Some describe rugby as being almost like a religion on the islands, yet that is not to reduce the significance of their faith. To see players bedecked in red and white kneeling arm in arm in prayer after Tonga’s win over Fiji is no surprise while you notice how the Fijians come together to sing a hymn at the end of key sessions. The lotu – a time for prayer – is also noted in teams’ daily itineraries like a gym session or physio window.Faith: Tonga and Fiji come together to pray after their Test in JuneSinoti Sinoti talks of Samoa’s mantra of “selfless acts”, putting greater glory ahead of individual deeds, while Fiji flyer Josua Tuisova says: “I want to make sure I fulfil what God has given me.”Having the privilege of spending time with all three teams, we also get to see the laid-back and playful nature of these squads. There’s the constant banter as Tonga play beach volleyball on a rest day (the packed lunch of a wrap, six sandwiches and two muffins is also quite an insight); family time for the Samoa players by the hotel pool after their RWC 2019 first-leg play-off win over Germany; the high-pitched laughter of Fiji players as centre Jale Vatubua is called out for asking reception staff for make-up to cover up a facial cut in an impromptu court-type session.Watisoni Nasalo, who won three caps for Fiji in the Seventies, perfectly sums it up when saying: “When you’re happy doing something, you always do it well.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: FijiInvestigationSamoaTonga If they could harness all the talent available, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga would not only be dangerous on the world stage but consistently competitive. There are several matters that need to be addressed first though… Laughter and singing may be omnipresent off the pitch but there is no denying their talent on it. You’d be hard pressed to find a professional club that doesn’t have at least one player of Pacific Islands heritage on their books for they have skills that can’t be coached.“I was always aware of the special talents Pacific players have,” says John McKee, who’s coached Fiji since 2014, “but I was still surprised when I came to live in Fiji and saw games at local level, schoolboy games, with really talented young players. Fiji has athletes who have a natural talent for playing rugby. For talent and athletic ability, they’re a nine out of ten. It’s the technical and tactical side that we’re working on.“My experience with Fijian players is that they’re keen to listen to new ideas. It’s very refreshing. Other players I’ve worked with before were more fixed in their mindset and it was hard to bring in something different, but Fijian players are much more open.” 1. Introduction2. Page 23. Page 34.

Page 5Page 1 of 5 – Show Full ListIntroductionPage 2Page 3Page 4Page 5center_img Following Rugby World’s recent trip to the Pacific Islands, we celebrate the importance of the game in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga – and highlight the running battles taking place off the pitch The diaspora of islanders means it is hard for selectors to keep track of all those eligible to represent their country. Peter Horne, in charge of World Rugby’s high-performance programmes, says: “Their greatest challenge could be their greatest success. They have talent everywhere; they just need to try to bring it together.” Special Report: The opportunities and the obstacles for Pacific Islands rugby A Sunday evening stroll along the beach in Fiji perfectly illustrates the Pacific Islands’ relationship with rugby. As the sun sets on the 2km stretch of sand between the Pearl and Uprising resorts in Pacific Harbour, on the south coast of Viti Levu, Rugby World passes a trio chucking a ball around in the sea, a group of guys in their late teens engaged in three-a-side touch, a father playing with his three boys, and a mother practising kicking with her son.It’s a similar story on the 45-minute journey from the airport to Apia city centre in Samoa. Every few hundred metres there are kids big and small playing in groups big and small on patches of grass big and small. One toddler is even using a flip-flop in place of a ball.There are myriad examples from our three weeks in the Pacific to demonstrate rugby’s importance. From neatly-presented rugby pitches taking centre stage in schools and villages, the posts at one on the Coral Coast made of bamboo, to the plethora of jerseys – as well as Super Rugby ones, we saw Ospreys and Exeter shirts. From the children at Lami Primary School giddy with excitement at the Tonga team visiting to the photograph hunters trailing the Fiji team around the Warwick hotel on World Selfie Day.

UAW local see gains in Kohler strike

first_imgAfter a 32-day strike against the Kohler Co., on December 16, the fighting members of United Auto Workers Local 833 voted 91 percent in favor to accept a four-year tentative contract agreement. They returned to work the next day. Babette Grunow of Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement at the UAW Local 833 Emil Mazey hall with striker Dec. 13.“We worked very hard to reach an agreement that addresses all of the key areas crucial to the future of our members,” said Tim Tayloe, Local 833 president in a UAW press release. Tayloe said the agreement would “significantly” close the wage gap between newer and older hires, “while also providing substantial wage increases in each year of the contract.” Inspiring the entire labor movement and community struggles, members of Local 833 — in a climate of severe union-busting austerity in Wisconsin and nationwide — went on strike November 15 after voting by a margin of 94 percent to reject a tentative contract offer from Kohler that kept a two-tier system in place, with “Tier B” workers making on average $10 an hour less than “Tier A” workers. Health care costs were also a major strike issue. Although the tentative agreement didn’t eliminate two-tier entirely, advances towards wage equality will be made during the life of the contract. Labor-community solidarityAnticipating a strike vote, labor and community supporters started mobilizing solidarity actions for their Local 833 sisters and brothers the day before the vote.  Members of Rockford Fight Imperialism Stand Together join striking UAW Local 833 members at the Kohler Co. Dec. 14.During the strike, ongoing support kept spirits up and the union hall in operation 24/7. Numerous small businesses assisted the strikers in a variety of ways and unions from around the United States and beyond, along with a variety of student and community organizations, lent dynamic support. Numerous solidarity resolutions came from unions such as the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 526 in Milwaukee, the United Steelworkers Local 8751 in Boston, the Autoworkers Caravan and the School of the America’s Watch Labor Caucus.  Food and kids’ toy drives for striking members and their families were organized by a variety of union and community organizations, including the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association, the United Worker Organization, the Wisconsin AFL-CIO and the Wisconsin Education Association Council. Tens of thousands of dollars were sent by many unions to Local 833’s strike fund. Babette Grunow of the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement participated in a “Youth Empowered in the Struggle” solidarity delegation from Milwaukee to the strike picket lines on December 5. She returned with another delegation, this time of Rockford “Fight Imperialism Stand Together” and Workers World Party members December 13-14. Grunow also helped to mobilize support from Milwaukee and circulated strike support information through social media.  Grunow told WW, “It has been inspiring seeing all the support for Local 833. As we talked to the members they have been expressing their thanks for the solidarity. It’s an uplifting experience. The workers are well organized and are a good example for other unions.”For more information and how to support Local 833: facebook.com/Local833local; facebook.com/defeatrighttowork; wibailoutpeople.org and facebook.com/wisaflcioFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Shared resources such as the instrumentation funded by The Dow Chemical Company Foundation help advance discovery across Caltech. Credit: Philip ChanningThe Dow Chemical Company Foundation has awarded two new grants to benefit Caltech’s Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (CCE), funding faculty start-up investments and leading-edge instrumentation.These gifts are the latest in a decades-long association between the foundation and Caltech that has advanced research and education in fields including sustainable energy, materials science, and applied physics.“The industrial-academic partnership between Dow and Caltech exemplifies our two institutions’ commitment to addressing urgent problems that confront the world,” says Thomas F. Rosenbaum, Caltech’s president, holder of the Sonja and William Davidow Presidential Chair, and professor of physics. “We are grateful to The Dow Chemical Company Foundation for enabling chemists and chemical engineers to pursue their best ideas in defining areas such as materials chemistry and renewable energy.”One grant will underwrite start-up costs for new faculty members, giving CCE a key advantage in attracting creative, original thinkers. This is especially important funding for CCE—an academic program that has pushed the frontiers of discovery and trained generations of scientific leaders by making every recruitment count. This approach has helped the division build an active faculty that includes three Nobel laureates, four National Medal of Science recipients, one recipient of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, and 20 members of the National Academies.The second commitment will help CCE update and maintain equipment shared by all of its scholars—facilities for nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance, and mass spectrometry. The funds also will support the cost of teaching graduate students how to use these instruments.“Dow and Caltech have built a robust relationship, with a history of advancing research that addresses some of society’s toughest challenges. These latest grants from the foundation will expand research opportunities, delivering benefits to engineering, the science community, the Institute, and ultimately society,” says A.N. Sreeram, Dow’s corporate vice president for research and development.The link between the Institute and Dow stretches back more than 30 years and includes numerous joint research projects as well as steady foundation support for Caltech’s Dow Travel Fellowship and Dow’s Seminar Series in Organic and Organometallic Chemistry.In 2009, Dow and Caltech initiated a $4.2 million partnership that fueled investigations aimed at creating solar cells from inexpensive, abundant materials. That same year, Dow’s Graduate Fellowship in Chemical Sciences and Engineering was endowed with help from the Gordon and Betty Moore Matching Program.A $10 million collaboration followed in 2011, providing resources for the Resnick Sustainability Institute at Caltech as well as endowing five graduate fellowships in chemistry and chemical engineering and another five fellowships in energy science. The agreement made Dow a member of Caltech’s Corporate Partners Program, which provides a gateway for exchange and productive collaborations between industry and the Institute.“Caltech’s leadership in science education and sustainability research make these grants a perfect fit in advancing innovation and building the workforce of tomorrow,” says Rob Vallentine, president and executive director of The Dow Chemical Company Foundation and global director of corporate citizenship at The Dow Chemical Company. “We are pleased to provide resources that enable Caltech faculty and students to advance science and invent important technologies.”Established in 1979, The Dow Chemical Company Foundation contributes to sustainable communities by supporting strategic philanthropic investments to build the workforce of tomorrow and drive innovative global solutions to address the world’s most pressing challenges. The foundation is a separately governed private foundation designed to carry out the charitable efforts of Dow.

City Adds New Solar Power Source, Can Power up to 9,400 Pasadena Homes

first_img Top of the News Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. First Heatwave Expected Next Week Subscribe Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Government City Adds New Solar Power Source, Can Power up to 9,400 Pasadena Homes Published on Thursday, May 19, 2016 | 4:27 pm Pasadena Water and Power (PWP), is now receiving 20 megawatts (MW) of solar power from a large-scale commercial solar project in Kern County, Calif., known as the Kingbird “A” Solar Project (Kingbird). The 20MW solar project is expected to produce enough power each year equivalent to the average annual energy consumption of about 9,400 Pasadena homes.The Kingbird development covers nearly 325 acres with more than 460,000 First Solar panels, and overall will produce 40MW of which Pasadena will be receiving half, or 20MW. Located near Rosamond, CA just across the Los Angeles County border, the Kingbird development is an ideal project site since it is relatively close to PWP’s electric load center.At 20MW, Kingbird A is the largest operating utility-scale solar source in PWP’s renewable energy portfolio to date. With the Kingbird A project and two additional new utility-scale solar projects anticipated to become operational in the next few months, solar power is expected to make up approximately 20 percent of PWP’s renewable portfolio by the end of 2016 and 35 percent in 2017.“Pasadena has made great strides to add new renewable energy sources to its power portfolio,” said PWP Resource Planning Manager Leesa Nayudu. “The addition of this new solar source brings us closer to meeting goals identified in several of the City’s long term strategic plans.”PWP’s Integrated Resource Plan goals include a commitment to eliminate the use of coal-based energy by 2027 and to achieve a 60-percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 (based on 1990 levels). PWP’s Renewable Portfolio Standard goal is to supply 40 percent of its retail energy sales with renewable resources by 2020 and 50 percent by 2030. The addition of 20MW from the Kingbird project is estimated to provide more than 5 percent of PWP’s total annual energy supply from all sources.Owned and operated by 8point3 Energy Partners and developed by First Solar, the project eliminates the need for upfront capital costs and annual fixed costs from PWP. The power purchase agreement includes an option for PWP to purchase the facility at various points during the contract term. To learn more about the Kingbird project, visit www.PWPweb.com/Kingbird.“This project reduces the cost of renewable energy by taking advantage of investment tax credits while providing PWP with the flexibility to determine whether it wants to purchase the facility. Access to a large source of solar energy is especially attractive given that it is available during the day when energy loads are typically higher,” said PWP Interim General Manager Shari Thomas.Stay connected to the City of Pasadena!

Online/hybrid estate agents increase market share by 2.7% during pandemic

first_imgHybrid and online estate agents have enjoyed a 10% surge in instructions with overall market share rising by 2.7% to 9.9% over the past year.According to TwentyCI, which has compiled the data, the surge in market share has been created last year’s lockdown which saw many traditional agents shut up shop for two months.Also, TwentyCI’s monthly market report shows that online and hybrid agents have been making ‘significant gains’ within London, a market that they’ve struggled to penetrate in the past“Hybrid online estate agents have traditionally appealed to the owners of lower value properties,” the report says.“In 2020 we have seen an improved level of penetration into properties of greater value.Significant uplift“This will be driven both by the increase in the average property price coming to the market (thereby making fewer available in the lower bandings) in addition to the significant uplift of activity across all price bands within the residential property market.”Hybrid and online estate agents’ progress is not uniform. As well as advances in London, they have gained significant extra share in the East Midlands, East of England, the North West and South West.But these agents have lost share in several other areas including Yorkshire and the Humber, Wales and Scotland, the North East and West Midlands.This TwentyCI suggests, is because more middle-class mid-market home movers, who tend to shun online/hybrid agents, have been taken up more of the market following the Stamp Duty holiday introduced last year by the Chancellor.Read the report in full.hybrid estate agents online estate agents TwentyCi January 25, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
