£2k to invest? I’d buy these FTSE 250 shares right now!

first_img The FTSE 250 has dropped by 20% in the year-to-date, as the fallout from the coronavirus outbreak continues. For FTSE 250 investors, this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy shares in great companies at bargain prices. Many industries have been affected in ways that once would have been unimaginable. However, it’s still possible to pick up some real gems.I’ve identified two shares that could be worth buying now.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 cheap FTSE 250 share?The National Express (LSE: NEX) share price has fallen by 62% in the year-to-date. As the public was in lockdown for several months, this won’t be a surprise to most investors. This drop means the company is trading with a price-to-earnings ratio of just 5.However, before the coronavirus outbreak properly hit the stock market, the shares were on an upward trajectory. If we look from January 2010 to January 2020, the National Express share price had increased by roughly 130%.Is the market pricing this FTSE 250 stock unfairly today? I think so. Undoubtedly, the group has been hugely impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. Revenue in April was reported to be down by 50% compared with 2019. However, the company’s positive EBITDA was ahead of expectations. Cash flow levels were positive, also ahead of expectations. This was partly down to reducing monthly operating costs by £100m.With coach services set to resume this month, it’s possible that revenues will slowly return to normal levels. Of course, this depends on customer confidence. Will the general public feel comfortable enough to travel on coaches?With operations around the world, National Express is one of the FTSE 250 companies that has been severely impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. In the long term, I think that customers will continue to use its services, and now could be a great time to buy and hold its shares.Britvic share priceIn the year-to-date, Britvic‘s (LSE: BVIC) share price has dropped by 13%. This slump means the stock now has a price-to-earnings ratio of 12.Despite the coronavirus outbreak, in May the company reported a good start to the year. Revenue increased by 1.4% for the 26 weeks to 31 March, which was driven by customer favourites, such as Robinsons, Tango, Pepsi and 7UP. Its profit after tax for the period increased by 11.5% to £38.9mUnsurprisingly, with the shutdown of the hospitality industry, out-of-home sales have dropped. But this has been mitigated by an increase in at-home consumption.Britvic has deferred its decision on its dividend until later in the year, a move that other FTSE 250 companies have also taken. Although this might be difficult for some investors to stomach, I think this is the right call. The company ultimately wants to protect its liquidity, and given the current situation, this is a wise move.For me, Britvic ticks the box of having a strong portfolio of brands and economic moat against its competition. I think the company has proved its resilience by weathering the current coronavirus crisis so far. I’d buy now. T Sligo has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Jongluck villa 168 is a house of 3 small families surrounded by paddy fields and local village. Approximately 2,000 square meters with 3 stories. The ground floor accommodates common area, living area, service area, car parking and swimming pool. The second floor is the private living unit for all family members. The first design process is to separate main programs of the house into 3 main spaces: indoor, outdoor and semi-outdoor space, the space under the house applied from the traditional Thai house. These 3 main spaces are connected by the central courtyard.Save this picture!© Beer SingnoiSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Beer SingnoiSave this picture!© Beer SingnoiArchitect has idea to create dynamic movement which would circulate all spaces. These ideas are resulted in the overlapping layers of spaces developing into a number of loops of spaces which grow from the central court and expand through the vertical and horizontal axis of the house. The inner loop is the wooden terrace around the garden in the central court. The second loop is the concrete stairs embracing the central court. The very low angles of slope of the stairs causing the comfortable and relaxing platform to open opportunity for all dwellers to gradually and gently interact with the nature in central garden – courtyard through various experiences.Save this picture!© Beer SingnoiThe third layer of loop is the central area of the house where all members could have all activities together both indoor and semi-indoor space. The space under the house provide shade to comfort the opening space and create a big horizontal void to facilitate natural light and wind to the building and the courtyard. In this layer, windows, doors and building’s skin adjacent to the courtyard are equipped with the transparent glass to widen the view of the central courtyard and allow each member from opposite side of the house can connect to each other through the central courtyard.Save this picture!© Beer SingnoiSave this picture!Section ESave this picture!© Beer SingnoiThe last loop of space is the outer loop where all bedrooms are located in different position and direction to create more privacy and nice surrounded scenes of the mountain.  The structure of the house is the reinforced concrete structure with long-span beam to create more opportunity of surrounding panorama view and to create more potentials and possibilities of space design.Save this picture!© Beer SingnoiThe terrace structure of cantilever slab system show the sense of lightness of the form, and create a better chance to bring all dwellers to have a closer experience to the natural environment.

Big Sleuth Trail sees bears raise funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity

first_img The Big Sleuth Trail is taking place across Birmingham and the surrounding area this summer to raise funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.Organised by Wild in Art and Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, the ten-week Big Sleuth Trail sees more than 100 sun bear sculptures placed in a variety of locations for people to spot.The Big Sleuth went live on 10th July, and is the region’s largest ever free public art trail, covering around 70 miles in and around Birmingham and its surrounding areas of Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Sandwell and Resorts World. People can use the map on the trail site or download an app for £1.99 to help them find the bears, and are asked to share their photos on social media using #TheBigSleuth.The trail is called The Big Sleuth because ‘sleuth’ is the name of a group of bears. Each one has been designed by an artist or celebrity, including artists Temper and Reuben Colley, pop-rock star Bradley Simpson from The Vamps, actor Adil Ray A.K.A Citizen Khan, Birmingham Bears and England cricketer Chris Woakes, adventurer Bear Grylls, and a Peaky Blinders bear endorsed by the show’s writer Steven Knight.

President Bush’s decision to attend the Olympic opening ceremony: a capitulation of the human rights cause

first_img Help by sharing this information July 4, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 President Bush’s decision to attend the Olympic opening ceremony: a capitulation of the human rights cause March 12, 2021 Find out more News News Organisation ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is deeply disappointed by the President’s decision to attend the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony. “This is a capitulation,” the press freedom organization said. “The President is depriving himself of an effective way to pressure the Chinese authorities for the release of political dissidents, and the opportunity to push for concrete improvements on human rights and press freedom in China.”As the Beijing Olympic’s Opening Ceremony is fast approaching, Reporters Without Borders urges President Bush to explain publicly on what grounds he based his decision, as repression is actually increasing in the run up to the Games. For instance, “Olympic prisoners” have been sent to jail simply for asking for human rights to be upheld. Currently, China is the world’s biggest prison for journalists and Internet users.White House spokesperson Dana Perino announced today that President Bush will be attending the Opening Ceremony. She then retracted and later issued a correction stating that “The President and Mrs. Bush will attend the Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Olympic Games on August 8.”According to news reports, Perino was pressed by reporters earlier in April with the same question, answering, “I cannot… I’m not trying to signal anything by saying that. I don’t have the president’s schedule. It is way too far in advance for us to announce the president’s schedule.” Until today, the White House Press Office and the President himself have been vague about his attendance of the Opening Ceremony.President Bush has been encouraged by human rights, non-profit organizations and some members of Congress to boycott the Opening Ceremony as a sign of protest for China’s grave human rights record.On 27 June, Reporters Without Borders, along with other human rights organizations sent a letter addressed to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice urging her to raise this issue during her trip to China prior to the G-8 summit in Japan.

It would be in violation of personal liberty under Article 221 of the Constitution of India.” The Allahabad High Court on Saturday directed the State of Uttar Pradesh to constitute a three-member Committee in every district so as to ensure that persons who have completed their Quarantine period and have tested Covid-negative are released forthwith. The direction was passed in PIL moved by Delhi-based lawyer Shaad Anwar who pointed out that the members of Tablighi Jamat, who had completed their quarantine period, were not being released by the state. The bench comprising of Justices Shashi Kant Gupta and Saurabh Shyam Shamshery directed, “we direct the State Government to ensure that the persons, who have completed their quarantine period be released forthwith from the Quarantine Centers provided they have tested negative and there is no legal impediment in releasing them. We, further direct the Chief Secretary, State of Uttar Pradesh to set up a three members committee in every district to ensure smoother, greater and more effective functioning of the Quarantine Centers.” The court has clarified that the Committee will not only supervise the functioning of the Quarantine Centers but will ensure also that such centers are properly maintained and administered. The Committee will also be responsible to provide help, assistance, guidance in the wake of difficulties and problems faced by the persons, who are quarantined and further ensure that the persons, who have completed quarantine period, are released forthwith provided they have tested negative after completing quarantine period and there is no legal impediment in releasing them. The bench observed that these measures were crucial to ensure that the right to life and liberty of individuals, guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution, are preserved. “Due to prevailing outbreak of Covid-19, large members of persons including migrant workers, are quarantined at different places in the State of Uttar Pradesh. They are required to be released as soon as quarantine period is over. As a guardian of the Constitution, this Court has a duty to interfere whenever there is an abuse of power or usurpation of a right conferred by the Constitution. Persons, who have completed their quarantine period and have tested negative cannot be further detained in the Quarantine Centers against their wishes. It would be in violation of personal liberty under Article 221 of the Constitution of India,” the bench observed. As regards detention of members of the Tablighi Jamat, the state had informed the Court that all the 3001 Indians, who were the members of the Tablighi Jamat and were quarantined, had been released after completing the quarantine period. On Friday, the court had asked the Government to apprise it with the status of members of Tablighi Jamat, who were quarantined after their arrival in the state. “3001 members (Indians) of the Tablighi Jamat, have been released by the State from the Quarantine Centers, however, 21 members out of them have been detained in Jail, as such, none of the members of the Tablighi Jamat are in Quarantine Centers,” the State had submitted. In view of this submission, clubbed with the failure of the Petitioner to furnish details of persons who according to him were wrongly detained, the court refused to pass any further directions on the issue. However, it said that it would be open to the petitioner to ventilate its grievances in accordance with law before the appropriate forum in case he discovers later on that some members of Tablighi Jamat are still detained in the Quarantine Center despite completing the requisite period of quarantine.

NI Finance Minister had concerns about Ballykelly decentralisation

first_img Google+ LUH still not ready to restore IT systems NI Finance Minister had concerns about Ballykelly decentralisation Pinterest Facebook Andrew McGinley says his children are getting him through life News Pinterest It’s emerged that the North’s finance minister had concerns about a decision to relocate the agriculture department to a former army base in County Derry.An estimated 800 jobs will move from Belfast to the former Shackleton Army barracks in Ballykelly, despite a study showing Strabane to be the more economically deserving location.Last night, it emerged on BBC Northern Ireland’s programme “The View” that Sammy Wilson was asked to approve a decision by the agriculture minister to over-rule advice from her permanent secretary and opt for Ballykelly, without further appraising other potential sites.Michelle O’Neill’s “ministerial direction” had to be approved by the finance minister, and it emerged on the programme that he had concerns, and brought the matter to the executive.It is understood Mr Wilson’s concerns included the cost, staffing consideration and access to the former barracks site.However, in an interview with The View, Ms O’Neill said the Ballykelly site was ideal, was already owned by the executive and would regenerate the area.She said she was content with the process, which included an assessment of local council areas. Limavady, near Ballykelly, came second in an internal departmental audit, just behind Strabane.Ms O’Neill said she hopes the trade union, NIPSA, which is seeking legal advice on the decision, will accept her explanation about why she opted for Ballykelly, before she began her Equality Impact Assessment.NIPSA has not yet ruled out a Judicial Review.
