What do you and I need to do to become a stock market millionaire? Well recent history shows us that buying after market crashes is a particularly effective way to get rich from UK shares.Growth in the number of Stocks and Shares ISA millionaires over the past decade has been truly staggering. It’s estimated that around 1,000 Britons have made a million or more by buying UK shares through one of these tax-efficient investment products. If true, this is up fivefold from the 200 or so ISA millionaires that Hargreaves Lansdown said were knocking around just four years ago.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…It’s no coincidence that the number of Stocks and Shares ISA millionaires spiked as prices of UK shares exploded in the decade following the 2008/09 stock market crash. Buying stocks at low prices during tough times, and then watching them balloon in value as economic conditions improve, is a brilliant way to turbocharge your shareholder returns. And the 2020 stock market crash allows you and I do the same as those savvy millionaires did in the 2010s and get rich from rebounding share prices.2 of the best UK shares to buyThere’s a broad array of top London-listed stocks that are on my personal watchlist following the market crash. Let me talk you through some of the best UK shares I think are too cheap to miss today:CVS Group is fractionally lower from levels recorded just before the stock market crash. This leaves it trading on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings-growth (PEG) ratio of 0.6. And it’s a reading that fails to reflect the rate at which the animal care market is growing in the UK. Last month the veterinary services provider said that revenues were “comfortably ahead of the prior year” in the 12 months to June. This is despite the mass closures of its surgeries as part of broader Covid-19 lockdowns. I’m encouraged to buy more of this stock for my ISA following this reassuring release.Okay, AstraZeneca’s share price is actually up in 2020 despite the stock market crash. But at current prices, the medicines maker’s shares are still too cheap to miss, I feel. They also trade on a forward PEG ratio of below 1. And the FTSE 100 firm carries a meaty 2.5% dividend yield to sweeten the deal. I’d buy it today as sales of its new medicines rip higher (up 42% in the first half), and particularly so in white-hot emerging markets. Revenues in these territories jumped more than 70% between January and June.More bargain stocks to help you make a millionAstraZeneca and CVS Group are just a couple of the ‘too-cheap-to-miss’ UK shares I’m thinking of buying today. There are scores of other top-quality stocks out there that are on my watchlist following the stock market crash.

The +Energy House is located in the wine community Kasel, in the Ruwer valley, and repeats the two storey with a gable roof structure in the village. Currently it is used as an office, but can be converted to a home when needed. The elongated structure was built with solid wood construction on a concrete floor slab. All structural and partition walls are made of solid wood plate elements, which remain undisguised in the interior, where an ivory-colored glaze applied to the walls and ceillings reveals the texture of the wood structure. Save this picture!© Linda BlatzekCirculating the construction is a 30 to 40 cm thick layer of insulation (walls, roof and floor). The airtight and thermal bridge-free design of the insulated shell are basic principles of a passive house. In addition, the house has a heat recovery ventilation system, the air is introduced via ground collectors. The regional materials are used in the exterior: oak at the main volume and slate for the single-story volumes. The resource-saving and CO2-neutral building materials wood and slate come from Ruwertal and tie the building into the landscape and the rural environment. Save this picture!© Linda BlatzekThe roof surfaces are treated accordingly to the compass: north facade with elements of copper, the entire area to the south with integrated photovoltaic panels. This additional component of the passive house can be used as +Energy House. The interior spatial character is determined not only by the materials – wood and slate – but also through the open floor plan and open space connecting the two floors in the entrance area. Save this picture!© Linda BlatzekIn addition, the interior and exterior spaces are deeply connected. Wood windows with triple glazing in glass-over-frame construction make very large frameless windows in groundfloor. Upstairs, bay windows in the south façade draw the eye to the landscape. The high quality, unobtrusive building design not only has its roots in the region’s architectural character, but perpetuates creatively and technically in the future.

On paper the equation is simple: a 45 m2 extension to a house to accommodate a comfortable kitchen and living area. In practice, the challenge was much more complicated. How to extend a large 19th century house without betraying its character or resorting to imitation or superficial stylistic effects, whilst keeping the right distance? In response to these requirements, the architects at the Playtime agency have delivered an expertly crafted marvel. A small metallic white volume, raised off the ground to emphasise its clean lines.  Inserted between two existing trees, it has found its place, making the most of the beautiful views of the surrounding landscapes. Architecture and nature dialogue through the interplay of shadows and reflections that create infinite versions of this contemporary cabin.Save this picture!© Studio Erick SailletA discreet but effective presenceConfronted with this very traditional house, the success of the project hung on a number of factors that had to be carefully controlled. First of all, the decision was made to produce a simple, balanced volume with clean, minimalist lines on a scale that blends in with the main building.Save this picture!© Studio Erick SailletThe small, rectangular parallelepiped of 5.5 m by 9.5 m, is 3.6 m high so is lower than the ground floor of the main building. Having tested a number of hypotheses, the designers imagined a space parallel to the house, fully open on the east and west facades but entirely closed off to the south. Positioned as closely as possible to one of the existing trees, a projection was used to create a balcony that can be accessed via the kitchen. The whole has been designed to be as open as possible. The framework of the structure is designed with identical angles and lengths in the upper, lower and lateral sections. This frees up a threshold between the interior and the exterior the lower section of which can be occupied, the other sides of the building being glazed, projecting a shadow.Save this picture!Floor Plan”The constant search for the simplest forms and volumes meant we had to design every last detail… and put our grey matter to use!”The pavilion is raised to increase the feeling of lightness. Built using piles and cantilevers, there is a space between the building and the ground, on which it consequently has no impact. The same concept of separation is used to manage the relationship with the main house. An entirely glazed, lower volume acts as a “hatch” separating the two buildings with finesse. It avoids the pitfall so common to extension projects of creating an eyesore attached to an otherwise attractive building. This volume houses the kitchen. It acts as a spatial hyphen joining the two spaces and offers two views of the garden.Finally, the almost exclusive use of metal gives it a smooth, fine texture which again contributes to the lightness. The white perforated aluminium sheet metal creates a type of skin, adding an abstract element to the construction.Save this picture!© Studio Erick SailletPermanent interplay between architecture and natureOn this truly majestic site, architecture and nature dialogue on a constant basis, making nature a key component of the project. The land is gently sloping, offering fabulous views of the Monts du Lyonnais. There are many trees on the property including a number over a hundred years old (plane trees and cedars etc.). The project is inserted between the trees which have be carefully preserved.Save this picture!© Studio Erick SailletFrom the outside, the shadows and reflections transform the pavilion into an object that changes with the variations in the light, often giving it an ethereal glow. The pre-lacquered white aluminium (RAL 9010) also contributes to this chameleon-like effect by absorbing the surrounding colours. This is the case to the north where the yellow colour of the house creates a champagne shade. The post-lacquering micro-perforation (2,5 mm) leaves tiny silver half-moon shapes which create a kinetic feel.Save this picture!DetailInside the structure, the large windows frame the views of the landscapes. The exterior is allowed into the interior space through these extensive transparent surfaces which create the illusion of a cabin in the woods.”This extension simultaneously evokes tree houses, wood cabins, mountain refuges, garden pavilions or follies, but in a contemporary style.”A simple construction with careful attention to detailFrom a technical perspective, the structure was mainly built with dry construction methods using prefabricated metal components. The concrete foundation made it possible to build a 4.2 metre cantilevered structure. Four 20cm metal columns coated in stainless steel form the piles. They are positioned as closely as possible to the existing house. The main framework raised on the piles supports the column-beam structure. It is a conventional industrial skeleton using off-the-shelf laminated galvanised steel sections. All our energy was required to resolve the challenge of integrating the insulation whilst preserving the project’s finesse and lightness. Special attention was paid to the details, including how the metal was used, the design of the angles and folds, the layout of the cladding. This material allows for a very high level of precision. The shaping was done in the workshop and adjusted on-site which required close collaboration with the contractor.Save this picture!© Studio Erick SailletA composite floor, insulation and underfloor heating complete the construction.The environmental benefits of dry construction are well known (less disruption from the worksite, work finished more rapidly, lower energy consumption, projects which can be dismantled or transformed).  Other systems were used to enhance the project’s environmental credentials: a green roof (sedum), external insulation for increase thermal comfort, underfloor heating.Save this picture!© Studio Erick SailletA small-scale project including interior designFor this very small-scale project, the architects also designed all the fitted furniture. The kitchen, the storage facilities, the connection with the old kitchen, every detail was made to measure. They are designed to be ergonomic and user-friendly. A limited range of materials were used to harmonise with the house.Project gallerySee allShow lessSeattle’s First Center for Architecture and Design to Open This SaturdayArchitecture NewsLSE Reveals 6 Schemes for its Paul Marshall BuildingArchitecture News Share ArchDaily Year:  Project Management: “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

first_imgThe world is awash in oil and gas. Prices are plummeting. The Keystone XL pipeline is dead. Dreams of trillion-dollar returns on investments in fracking and tar sands are fading away. Oil tycoon Harry Hamm of Continental Resources lost $9.6 billion in six months. Schlumberger, the biggest oilfield services company, cut 9,000 jobs in January.These facts, not fear of a nonexistent bomb program, are why Republican lawmakers are desperate to sabotage nuclear negotiations between the U.S. and Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who murdered 514 Palestinian children in Gaza last summer, is eager to help. The racist state of Israel wants to exploit offshore gas fields that belong by rights to the Palestinian people.The headline of an opinion piece in the March 13 Washington Post declared the real agenda of the Republicans and Netanyahu’s Likud party: “War with Iran Is Our Best Option.” It was written by Joshua Muravchik of the Journal of International Security Affairs. The Washington Post is basically the house organ of the Pentagon.On March 9, 47 Republican senators signed an “open letter to the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” They apparently didn’t know or couldn’t spell the names of Iran’s top jurist Ali Khamenei or elected Prime Minister Hassan Rouhani. The arrogant and condescending letter lectured Iran’s leaders about the U.S. Constitution. But it violated that Constitution when it told them the GOP would undercut any agreement between the U.S. and Iranian governments.The letter’s signers, such as John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Rand Paul, are the worst racists, sexists and labor-haters in the Senate multimillionaires’ club. They also get the biggest handouts from the oil and gas industry. Energy firms gave Tom Cotton, who wrote the letter, $540,000 to run for the Senate. McCain has gotten more oil money in his career than any other legislator.Six days earlier, all 299 Republican lawmakers packed the Capitol to hear Netanyahu denounce the U.S.-Iran negotiations. House Speaker John Boehner invited the Israeli prime minister to address Congress without first telling President Barack Obama. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the Congressional Black Caucus boycotted the session. The Republicans not only showed up, they gave the Butcher of Gaza 29 standing ovations.Most Democratic leaders, including Senate Minority leader Harry Reid, also showed up to cheer Netanyahu. The Democrats are not a party of peace. Last summer, when Israel’s war machine rained white phosphorous, flèchette bombs, fuel-air explosives, dense inert metal explosives and other U.S.-made weapons of mass destruction on the imprisoned Palestinians of Gaza, the White House and congressional Democrats were happy to pay for it. The White House allowed the racist state to replenish its artillery shells from the Pentagon.War with Iran is a different matter, though. Gaza’s children don’t have missiles that can hit U.S. aircraft carriers. Democrats also know that when they start a war, Republicans win the next election.U.S. waged war to restrict oil supplyBoth sides of the congressional aisle supported the Bush regime’s 2003 invasion of Iraq. That war destroyed Iraq’s state-owned oil industry. Oil went from $30 to $147 a barrel in four years. Oil company profits rose nearly 300 percent. The war made profitable the boom in hydraulic fracturing — fracking — that has made the U.S. the world’s largest oil and gas producer.But capitalists will do what capitalists do. When profits and prices are booming, they produce “more than the market can bear.” The third quarter of 2008 saw a global capitalist economic crisis and oil prices began to fall.Like the Bush regime before it, the Obama administration lashed out at independent producers. The 2011 bombing of Libya, U.S.-funded wars in Syria and Ukraine, destabilization in Venezuela and sanctions on Iran and Russia slowed the decline, but couldn’t reverse it.Last September, Russia and China broke ground on what is planned to be the world’s biggest pipeline. It will supply China with Siberian natural gas.The U.S. is using falling oil prices as an economic wrecking ball against the economies of Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Ecuador and many other countries. The GOP is more belligerent, but both capitalist parties seek to maintain U.S. monopoly capital’s rapidly eroding position at the center of the world economy. This can only be done by more and more destructive wars.At the same time, the racist war against the most oppressed sectors of the working class here is producing more police killings of Black and Brown youth.Only a mass and militant people’s movement can stop the bosses’ offensive. On March 21, the 12th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, anti-war protests will be taking place in several cities. Stop the wars of predatory monopoly capitalism, at home and abroad!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Nov 5, 2019 Facebook Twitter Purdue College of Ag Recruiting Leaders at National FFA ConventionPurdue senior Courtney Kelley chats about the College of Ag with Kentucky FFA members at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis.The 92nd National FFA Convention and Expo concluded on Saturday in Indianapolis. Nearly 70,000 FFA members and guests from around the country were in our state’s capital last week. Indiana colleges and universities took the opportunity to show off their ag programs to those members.Purdue College of Agriculture senior Courtney Kelley, an ag education major from Salem, IN and a student ambassador, says this is one of the best opportunities they have to recruit out-of-state students. She says many FFA students already know Purdue has a world-renowned ag program when they come to the booth.Kelley told HAT that California is one of the most represented states in Purdue’s College of Ag.“This is such different agriculture than California agriculture, and so a lot of them are coming because they want a holistic animal science degree instead of just a dairy science degree, which is very common in California, or they’re interested in Midwest viticulture because wine production is a huge deal in California. We have that to offer.”So, what’s the pitch for prospective students? Kelley cites her own experiences.“I had never been to another country before I came to Purdue, and now I’ve been to 25 countries. I had never considered owning a greenhouse, operating a greenhouse, or doing floriculture for a career, and now, because of that, I absolutely love horticulture. There’s just a lot of opportunities that I accredit solely to the College of Agriculture that I would not have had.”Purdue also had campus tours available for students in town for the convention.Other Indiana institutions participated in the expo as well. Ancilla College and Huntington University each had a booth, while Ivy Tech had their new mobile ag classroom for students to tour.
