first_imgWorried about diving markets? I reckon this safe haven stock could protect your shares portfolio Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! With investor nerves at fever pitch, now seems to be a good time to load up on classic safe haven stocks.The steady spread of the coronavirus is dominating the financial market mindset now. The economic impact is expected to soar past that of the SARS outbreak almost two decades ago. The steady rise in the global infection rate (which currently sits north of 80,000) means that it’s something that is likely to keep rocking stock bourses in March, too.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…The COVID-19 tragedy isn’t the only thing that could hammer market confidence in March, either. Tough talks between Britain and the European Union over their future trade relationship are due to begin next week. And things are looking gloomy before they even kick off.The UK government announced this week that it could cut off discussions as early as June should both sides fail to reach a broad agreement on trade terms. The European Union remains steadfast in its desire for similar legal and regulatory alignments for a free trade deal to be signed off, though. Something has to give, and it could end up with Britain exiting the transition period in 2020 on economically damaging ‘no deal’ terms.Another healthcare starI recently explained why buying safe haven stocks could be a good idea at the current time. And one such share I tipped was GlaxoSmithKline. Global drugs demand is something that remains broadly constant regardless of macroeconomic and geopolitical times like these. And a growing, and ageing, global population means sales of its medicines can only be expected to move higher.Glaxo, then, is a terrific flight-to-safety stock today. But for those looking to reduce their investment risks still further then Alliance Pharma (LSE: APH) could be a more attractive healthcare stock to buy today.Troubles with drug development can cost pharmaceuticals developers a fortune. Rollout delays can cause R&D costs to balloon and result in many millions of pounds in lost revenues, too. This is something that Glaxo certainly isn’t any stranger to.Safe as housesAlliance Pharma is a much safer pick in this regard. The company specialises in drugs that have already passed the testing process, meaning that troubles at the lab bench aren’t anything it needs to worry about. What’s more, the products that it acquires have already been on the market for a long period, lessening the chances of the business suffering financially painful litigation action.The AIM-quoted firm is also seeing sales of its ‘International Star Brands’ like Kelo-Cote and Nizoral rip higher. Revenues from the former, for example, a treatment for scars, leapt 38% in 2019 thanks to booming demand from the Asia Pacific region. Group revenues boomed 16% year on year as a result.City analysts expect earnings at Alliance Pharma to rise a healthy 9% in both 2020 and 2021. And thanks to its strong balance sheet, investors can look forward to the business engaging in more profits-boosting acquisition activity, too (free cash flow leapt more than 80% last year). This is a share I’d buy for these turbulent times and hold for many years to come. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

first_imgSave this picture!© Oded SmadarThe process of locating the different functions on the lot while staying on a fine line between privacy vs. openness, formal vs. freedom, was the main challenge of the design. The starting point of the process was the reference to the entire lot as one single entity; In other words – The lot is the house- open or closed.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe movement between the different spaces creates their boundaries and the experience in them. The garden enjoys the same treatment of design as the interiors thus creating a balance of importance between inside and outside.Save this picture!© Oded SmadarThe front Street facade is subdued and modest compared to the rear which is exposed to the entire park and is absorbed into the woods. The element that connects the various parts of the house (Public rear wing, front wing – children, the upper level of the parents and basement) is nature and light. The Use in design of these elements varies from one place to another.Save this picture!© Oded SmadarIn the entrance the water and vegetation creates an oasis and draws the visitor into it. In the interior patio, the landscape and filtered light are used as a sculptural element used for disconnection and pause. In the front of the house, nature is used to blur topographic levels and for creating privacy, while at the rear garden depth and a sense of freedom with no end.Save this picture!© Oded SmadarDue to the relatively broad range of materials, we put great emphasis on harmony with repetitive production and changing doses of ingredients to create a definition of the different types of spaces. This idea was also used in a number of types of stone and wood, which together form a harmonious palette of colors and ambience.Save this picture!© Oded SmadarMuch thought has gone into the selection of a wide range of materials, not usually characteristic of our work. For example, the roof made of slate, stone pool in a tropical green, brushed sandstone facades, combined with vertical brass strips, and different sizes of stone flooring differing according to the spaces. We also used different types of metals such as brass, blackened iron, tin and dark aluminum.Save this picture!© Oded SmadarDespite its size and formality, the house produces an embracing warmth to its residents and visitors.

Each project is a journey. This journey actually started on a trip into the unknown…On our first meeting the clients shared their vacation experience abroad (far east), and asked us, if we could somehow engrave this into the atmosphere they would get in their home. In addition to that, the emphasis on “the nest” (parents and four children) with the meaning of privacy for everyone in the house, was a repeating notion of the conversation.Save this picture!© Oded SmadarThe next  visit on site, realized the potential of the land. The main street on one side and the pedestrian park on the other, suggested the location of the functions. A quiet pedestrian pathway in between, was clearly going to serve as the main entrance.

first_imgThe survival of many Georgia farmers depends greatly on onequestion: How efficiently can they use water and keep their yieldsand profits where they need them?The C.M. Stripling Irrigation Research Park will be trying to answer this and other irrigation-related questions during the coming growing season, say University of Georgia experts.The Way Water’s UsedNo new water-related legislation will likely be created this year in the Georgia General Assembly. But as early as next year, policymakers will begin forming concrete laws to change the way water is used in Georgia, said Jim Hook, a professor of crop and soil sciences with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.This will directly affect agriculture, “which uses the lion’s share of water” in many parts of the state, he said. Georgia agriculture needs concrete, scientific irrigation data to mold accurate and fair water practices and policies.Set for Major CropsScientists will begin irrigation research for major Georgia row crops such as cotton, peanuts and corn, said Rad Yager, superintendent of the research park. Future research will include vegetables.The park spans more than 130 acres, with 100 acres cleared for crops and 30 planted in pines, pecan trees and live oaks, said Kerry Harrison, CAES irrigation engineer. It’s strategically placed in the Flint River basin in southwest Georgia, the hub of agricultural water use in the state.To conduct the research, scientists will use different types of irrigation systems, such as pivot, linear and drip.All irrigation areas will be monitored by a centralized computer, said Dan Thomas, CAES professor of biological and agricultural engineering.”It’s all done by radio link that sends the information back to the main building,” Thomas said.Besides the computer control room, the main building contains a classroom and meeting area and a kitchen, main office, storage room and covered equipment area.Looking for AnswersResearchers will use the park to answer other key questions:* Will returns on irrigation investments be high enough and fast enough for farmers and their financial backers to risk investment?* How will this lead to new production opportunities for Georgia farmers or reduce economic risks in existing farms?* What new service and manufacturing opportunities will arise out of new products and improved margins for farmers?* How can growers, facing mandated water cutoffs or restrictions, schedule water use?* How does water usage in other parts of the state affect water quality and farm usage in southwest Georgia?Finite ResourceWater isn’t an infinite resource. Stakeholders, including farmers, have to independently understand their water usage, while also seeing the big picture. They have to see how all stakeholders are interdependent on this finite resource.”It’s not just farm commodities, it’s also what happens in Atlanta and with other (Georgia) commodities,” Hook said.C.M. Stripling of Camilla, Ga., donated the land for the research park to Mitchell County. The county leases the land to the UGA CAES for irrigation research.last_img read more

first_imgBack in January, the Bureau of Land Management proposed oil and gas leasing on Moab’s Slickrock trail, one of the most popular mountain biking destinations in the world. Under the plan, two parcels of land on Sand Flats—one near Arches National Park—would have been auctioned off for drilling. Tennessee State Parks need volunteers for this weekend’s Weed Wrangle During the wrangle, experts in invasive weed management will supervise the removal of trees, vines and flowering plants while volunteers learn ways to address their own green spaces to combat invasive species. More information can be found at Tennessee State Parks is seeking volunteers to help rid the state’s parks and natural areas of invasive species during the annual Weed Wrangle on Saturday, March 7. Most of the state parks and the Sequatchie Cave State Natural Area are participating.  “This raises the possibility that insufficient sunlight is a new risk factor for hypertension, perhaps even in the general population,” the study states.  Photo from Getty Imagescenter_img Bureau of Land Management pulls back from decision to open parts of Flat Rock to oil and gas leasing Recent studies suggest sun exposure may lower blood pressure Here’s another great excuse to get outside: A recently published study in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that exposure to solar UV radiation is associated with lower systolic blood pressure. Hypertension is a leading cause of premature death around the world. But due to public outcry, the Bureau of Land Management announced it will remove both parcels from the oil and gas lease sale, sparing Slickrock trail. “Recreation access is a priority of ours—as well as responsible energy development—and both provide important economic benefits to Utah,” BLM acting Canyon County District Manager Brian Quigley said in a news release.last_img read more

first_imgFacebook11Tweet0Pin0Submitted by BrightWire NetworksAlong with the flashlights, batteries, drinking water and gasoline, don’t forget to take care of your business’ computers, servers and network equipment by Friday afternoon ahead of the worst of what The Weather Channel is calling the “Pacific Northwest Storm Parade.”  Two strong storms are expected onshore, with the second wave being the remnants of Typhoon Songda.  Heavy rains and strong winds are likely through the weekend.There are some simple things your business should do in the face of stormy weather to protect your data and your equipment:At the end of the work day, properly save and close your files, close your programs, and shut down your workstations.Confirm that desktop computers are plugged into a surge protector/UPS battery backup.Verify that any routine security patches or updates are completed (especially on servers) that are attached to smart UPS back-up systems, so that if they need to auto-shutdown they can do so quickly and efficiently.Check that data is backed up and that the back-ups were successful, in case any equipment is damaged or destroyed. When was your last backup verification test?Ensure that mission critical backup devices or physical storage are not in locations vulnerable to flooding.“We’re trying do our part on behalf of clients to make sure these precautions are taken,” said Todd Whitley, co-founder of BrightWire Networks in Olympia, “and we recommend that business people take a few minutes on Friday to do the same.”last_img read more
