Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img UK share investors need to be careful before taking the plunge with penny stocks. Stocks which cost less than £1 apiece can be subjected to extreme price volatility due to their low cost. Investors need to be on their toes and be tolerant of a little more risk before buying these sort of shares.That said, I don’t think that investing in penny stocks should be dismissed out of hand. There are many top UK shares in this bracket which have the potential to deliver huge shareholder returns in the years ahead. Here are three I’m thinking of buying for my ISA.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…A medical marvelDemand for medical cannabis is tipped to detonate over the next decade. And one potentially-lucrative way for stock investors to play this theme is to invest in Kanabo Group (LSE: KNB).This UK share — which only began trading in London last month — manufactures cannabidiol (CBD) oil products for the legal medicinal market. But its long-term growth plans pivot around the development of its medical-grade VapePod vapouriser.Kanabo hopes its technology will be for the cannabis market what Nespresso is for instant coffee. That said, competition is fierce in the fast-growing medical cannabis industry. And this penny stock is a tiddler compared to the mighty US players. There’s a chance that it might be edged out of the market.Another high-growth penny stock?I believe owning shares that operate in emerging markets is essential. A combination of soaring population numbers and rising wealth levels in some of these parts of the world have the capacity to deliver stunning profits growth for many UK shares.I consider Airtel Africa (LSE: AAF) to be one of these. This penny stock provides telecommunications services in Africa, a market which is tipped for high growth in the years ahead. Airtel saw revenues blast 19% higher in the nine months to December.Bear in mind though, this UK telecoms share reports in dollars but trades in local African currencies. This leaves it at the mercy of whipping exchange rate movements that can take a huge bite out of earnings.A top UK property shareI’d also buy Empiric Student Property (LSE: ESP) in the hope of big long-term returns. As the name suggests, this UK penny stock provides accommodation to students, a sector which has pretty big growth potential.Latest data from higher education application body UCAS showed the number of students enrolling for university courses rose 5.4% in the 2020/2021 financial year. This represented a record high. And the number of those coming from overseas surged 7.5% year-on-year.British universities have always been highly popular with foreign students, people who have an obvious need for accommodation. And there’s no reason to expect this theme to expire any time soon.A word of warning, however. Empiric remains less active on the acquisition stage than some of its rivals. And this could allow its competitors to steal a march on it which could, in turn, compromise long-term growth. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The proposal, dubbed Urban Alloy, which won first in Metropolis’ Living Cities Residential Tower Competition and received honorable mention in Evolo Skyscrapers 2014, is capable of responding to a number of unique spacial and environmental situations, providing a new way for the city to grow “organically” and provide adequate housing for the expanding population. Read on for the architect’s description…Save this picture!Neighborhood Map. Image © AMLGMFrom the architects: The most dynamic cities of the 21st century, such as New York, are anthropomorphic alloys that act as engines for innovation and social cohesion. These cities, with their continually evolving demographics, will forge the dynamic societies of the future. With the rapid rise of near instantaneous communication, a city’s’ livability has gained prominence as an attractor for top minds. In order to secure its future as the leading global center, New York needs to continue to grow intelligently. Thus, we have envisioned an opportunity to draw the energy of Manhattan out into the four other boroughs without disrupting existing land use.Urban Alloy proposes a residential typology rooted in the remnant spaces surrounding the intersection of transportation infrastructure, such as elevated train lines and freeway interchanges. With the proposed design and specified materials, we aim to optimize a heterogeneous and highly linked set of living environments capturing the air rights above these systems.Save this picture!© AMLGMSave this picture!Section. Image © AMLGMLiving ConceptThe combination of escalating land prices and the acceleration of city migration have made urban renewal based modes of densification unfit for the contemporary city. Urban Alloy is the symbiotic re-purposing of the air rights above transportation corridors in New York. Urbanist’s have long touted the benefits of greater housing density near public transportation hubs – Urban Alloy proposes the advancement of this idea by locating the system directly on the intersections between surface and elevated train lines. We have chosen the intersection of the LIRR and the 7 train as a test case. The paradigm of one size fits all is obsolete. Urban citizens want diverse living situations where they can work, play, eat and rest within a pedestrian zone. As technology creates the market desire and a conditioning for personalization, society is more willing to pay a premium for spaces that are tailored to their particular needs. Save this picture!Program Diagram. Image © AMLGMSkin ConceptThe wide range of programmatic options inspired a blend of floor plate geometries that transition from cylindrical to triangular from the base to the top of each tower. This blend, along with constraints instilled from the site, generates a complex geometry that requires a new facade optimization paradigm. A composite or alloy of multiple flexible systems is required to optimize a skin in which every point has a unique environmental exposure. The system is deployed on a grid that follows the geometric directionality of the surface. Save this picture!Skin Diagram. Image © AMLGMAt each intersection of the grid, the normal of the surface is analyzed against its optimal solar shading and daylight transmitting requirements. An authored algorithm then generates vertical and horizontal fin profiles that blend with the profiles at adjacent nodes. The result is an optimized system of decorative metal fins that are unique to each specific solar orientation. Based upon the tenants of current solar facade design, the algorithm utilizes deep horizontal fins along southern exposure, and deeper vertical fins along east and west facing surfaces. This system generates specific fin depth and orientation for every point on the surface. Save this picture!Atrium.

Joe Radanovich was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, on Nov. 5 after the Chevrolet Silverado car he was a passenger in flipped four to six times, according to the Texas Department of Transportation crash report for the accident.The driver of the vehicle, a TCU student, fell asleep while going eastbound on U.S. Route 84, according to the investigating officer. The truck merged into the left lane and eventually into the left shoulder, before going into a skid. From there, the driver tried to correct back right, according to the crash report.The driver then began to skid back across into the right lane and ended up on the opposite shoulder, where the vehicle began to flip. Radanovich, who is still hospitalized, suffered punctured lungs and two fractured vertebrae, which left him paralyzed. One passenger had to receive pelvic surgery. The driver and one other passenger in the truck were not seriously injured.Two GoFundMe fundraisers were created and a t-shirt fundraiser has since been started to raise money for Radanovich’s care. “The main outcome I wanted from setting up the GoFundMe was to, obviously, raise money for Joe and his family, whether that’s $1,000 or $20,000,” said Cole Beyer, a first-year pre-business major, who raised $20,290.Beyer said he does not know Radanovich, but one of the other people involved was Beyer’s roommate. Beyer’s effort inspired junior business information systems major Garrett Robinson and Max Muskat, a sophomore pre-business major, to start a fundraiser. They set their goal at $100,000 and have since raised it to $150,000.“Max and I were sitting down one day and just started to get the GoFundMe going and we were trying to think of a reasonable goal. No more than four days later we hit our $100,000 mark,” Robinson said.In six days, they raised $105,632 to help with hospital bills and therapy costs.Robinson said Radanovich’s condition is doing better. He underwent surgery for his back two vertebrae on Nov. 8 and is in a wheelchair working to get his strength back.“His spirits are super high, he’s still joking around, he’s still the same old Joe, he’s still keeping his head high,” Robinson said. “He is just really staying positive which is huge.”Radanovich’s doctors and surgeon have said he is in the 5% that is able to recover after an injury of this magnitude, Muskat said.last_img read more

It all began when the journalist went past a police station in a suburb of Luanda when he heard calls for help from detainees in the cells. Having tried unsuccessfully to obtain information from the police officers, he recorded the prisoners’ calls and broadcast them on his station’s airwaves. They were asking for medical assistance for a fellow prisoner who was dying of tuberculosis in an overcrowded cell. Chiluvia was immediately arrested and brought before a judge who gave him a six-month suspended sentence for defamation, offending the police and working illegally as a journalist. That is the price paid by a journalist in Angola for using the media to try to save a life. Chiluvia is still involved with Despertar radio, an essential counterweight in a country where freedom of speech can be easily denied. Information hero Queirós Anastácio Chiluvia last_img read more

The 2,099 public schools in California receiving this distinction from the California business community have demonstrated consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.“We are proud that these three schools are being recognized by California’s business community as Honor Roll schools,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and I am pleased that this dedication is paying off.”“Having high standards, effective school leadership, and staying focused on student academic achievement has paid off for these Honor Roll Schools,” said Lee Blitch, CBEE Chairman and past CEO, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. “These schools are an inspiration.”Over time, CBEE has identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools and districts. These include high expectations for all students; ongoing collaboration among teachers to improve practice; targeted use of data to pinpoint challenges and monitor progress; continual intervention for struggling students; and mastery of content knowledge and pedagogical practices.“Our goal is to highlight these amazing schools who have been succeeding with our kids. Their practices can be replicated but only if those looking know where the status quo is unacceptable and where success and myth busting is taking place,” said Jim Lanich, CBEE president. “All schools–no matter what zip code they are in– can achieve this kind of success.”The annual Honor Roll award is made possible with support from numerous businesses and organizations including State Farm, Macy’s, Edison International, Wells Fargo, Southern California Auto Club, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the California Business Roundtable, and several private foundations.

While expressing such appreciation, the Single Bench of Justice Rekha Palli noted: ‘This Court appreciates the efforts of the Delhi High Court Bar Association as also the voluntary offers made by various members of the Bar to support and assistance to the petitioner association in these trying times.’ These observations were made in a writ moved by DHCBCA seeking financial aid for its members due to economic hardship caused by the lockdown. In yesterday’s proceedings, Senior Advocate Mohit Mathur, who is also the President of the Delhi High Court Bar Association, informed the court that various members of the Bar have made voluntary contributions to support the members of DHCBCA. Mr Mathur said: ‘Ms.Maninder Acharya, learned senior counsel has generously volunteered to donate a sum of Rs.2 lakhs; similarly Mr.Rishi Agarwala, and Mr. Jayant Mehta, Advocates have volunteered to donate sums of Rs.3 lakhs and 1 lakh respectively to such a fund, as and when it is created.’ Mr Mathur further assured the court that more such contributions will be made once the fund is finally operationalised. Therefore, he sought more time to work on the finer points of instituting a fund for the members of DHCBCA. It was also submitted by Mr Mathur, that he along with Senior Advocates Kirti Uppal and Inder Singh Alag, are on agreement on the point that the amount contributed by the various members of the Bar can be deposited in the bank account of the petitioner itself, provided that the funds are only released to those members of the Petitioner association who are recommended by the two/three member committee proposed to be set up by the DHCBA. However, Mr Mathur did express his dissatisfaction towards allegations and remarks made against advocates in paragraph 16 of the petition. He said: ‘…the petitioner association is well aware that a number of Advocates, despite themselves facing financial difficulties, are ensuring that their clerks are duly paid.’ While directing the Petitioner to remove paragraph 16 and file an amended petition, the court noted that it is expected that by the next date, the Bar Association and the Petitioner will be able to convey to this Court a mutually agreed upon solution to lend timely financial aid to the needy members of the petitioner association. In addition to this, it was also informed to the court that by an order dated 30/06/20, the Delhi Government has rejected the Petitioner’s representation seeking aid from the Delhi Government.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

What would Jesus do with his old Christmas tree?

first_imgJohn Di Genio Dear Editor:As we approach the end of this Holiday season, I would like to take this opportunity to discuss a couple of thoughts that have crossed my mind. The first is about a very sad sight that seems to happen every year. Immediately after Christmas Day, I am faced with a most desolate vision, the depressing view of discarded Christmas trees at the curb awaiting their final fate at the hands of sanitation workers. This is woefully wrong. The Christmas season officially ends on January 6, Epiphany, or Three Kings Day. On that day, three kings, or magi, from the Orient visited the infant Jesus. Consequently, the Christmas decorations, to include the Christmas tree, should be taken down on January 7, the day following Epiphany. The second is a bit more philosophical. At the beginning of each year, you are given the first blank page of a 365-page book. Each minute is a word; each week, a paragraph; and each month, a chapter. It is your book! Write a good one! And be sure to save a few words, so you can make changes as needed, as you write these all-important pages. Have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018.last_img read more
