Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The Saga share price has soared by 50%. Here’s why I’d buy Saga (LSE: SAGA) has been a big beneficiary of this week’s rebound in leisure stocks. The Saga share price is one of Wednesday’s winners, with a massive 50% gain by noon.The shares are still more 50% down since the start of 2020, but recoveries rarely start off better then this. If we’re really looking at a genuine recovery, that is. I am bullish about the FTSE 100‘s prospects for recovery in the medium term. But I do think there’s a very real chance of a double-dip stock market crash before that happens.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…Still, in my experience, shares that are badly depressed by a crisis almost always recover. And it’s often relatively quickly. That leaves me puzzling a little over why people sell out during a crunch, when history unambiguously shows that’s the wrong thing to do.Saga share priceWell, it’s not always necessarily the wrong thing. Hanging on to shares in a company that’s at risk of going bust can be a bad move. But then, I’d say buying such shares in the first place is the real mistake. And with the Saga share price falling 45% this year at its worst, many investors must have seen a risk of bankruptcy there.The firm has shown a net debt to EBITDA ratio that I would often consider a little disturbing. But at year-end, the company was facing only £109m of short-term net bank debt. I think that should be easily serviceable without any risk of a liquidity crisis.Demand improvingSaga had been facing problems with falling demand in its targeted market of over-50s travel. It attempted to address it by further expansion into the cruise market, but then the Covid-19 blow struck. Still, the company has reported that customers have already booked 81% of its cruise capacity from September onwards. And of those who had cruises cancelled, more than half have already rebooked. I see that as positive for the long-term progress of the Saga share price.Tough yearThe current year looks sure to be a dreadful one, but forecasts still indicate a profit. And that’s something many of today’s strugglers won’t manage. Judging by the current consensus, we’re looking at a price-to-earnings ratio of only a little over 7. And if the forecast rebound in profit in the 2021–22 year comes off, it would drop that multiple to under 4.I think that suggests the Saga share price is at a level where the company is expected to go bust. And I just don’t see any real chance of that happening.DividendThe firm’s dividend has been a disappointment in the past couple of years. Saga slashed it by more than half in 2019, and then suspended it entirely this year in response to the Covid-19 crisis. Analysts expect a small dividend in 2020–21, but I can’t help wondering if that might be a mistake. I’d rather wait and see the company fully back on its feet and looking at growing earnings. Like the Saga share price itself, I look at dividends with a long-term view.I’ve been cautious about Saga in the past, but I do think I’m seeing a buy now. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.last_img read more

In practice, however, most projects end up placing top priority on profit maximization and the optimization of floor area. In addition, these buildings often incorporate elements that lead to superficial architecture. Nevertheless, for this project we attempted to rethink the possibilities of a multi-tenant building that would embody an appealing contemporary   philosophy while taking into account such routine considerations.  This project is situated in a largely residential area that lies about 1km north of the train station, distinguished by a large number of plots of land that are exceptionally long in relation to their frontage. The site for this project, too, was anarrow, slender plot with a frontage of about 10m and a depth of 50m in relation to the road out front, surrounded onthree sides by neighbouring residences. Typically, such a site tends to lead to a situation where the tenant space facing the road out front is blessed with more favourable conditions compared to the other spaces. With this in mind, we tried to work out spatial principles that would allow us to give the inner spaces additional advantages that would equal or surpass the conditions of the front space. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaRecommended ProductsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreLayered diversitySpecifically, this project involved a dental clinic on the first floor and an esthetic salon and office on the second floor. These facilities were housed in two boxes oriented towards the east and west, with a third box in the middle containing a staircase and a forest. The four walls formed by this layout of boxes were designed to create a sense of integrated diversity in the architecture, thanks to the layered openings in between the boxes. Save this picture!Courtesy of UID ArchitectTenants were also involved in the decision-making process from the planning stage onwards. They took a proactive role in deciding how the interior spaces would be designed, and were able to understand the framework of the building as a whole. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe front and back surfaces of each of the four layers contribute to creating a diverse, interrelated space. The openings ensure the privacy of neighbouring tenants, while the opening and tightening of these openings at regular intervals allows one to be aware not only of vertical connections between floors and horizontal ones between front and back, but also another sort of distance that transcends physical sensations. In addition, we expected that the trees in the forest would cause layers of physical distance to become ambiguous, creating an overall environment that would spread out in an organic manner. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaBy manipulating the space in this way, the front tenant space would be separated from the inner tenant space, while also remaining visible to it just beyond the various layers. The mountain scenery that lies beyond the front space, in contrast, feels close and familiar. In this way, it was possible to protect the privacy of each tenant while constructing a space that maintained the tangible presence of both these elements, thus providing the inner tenants with an environment that was equally favourable compared with the front space. The function of a single wall led to both a sense of necessity arising from the multiple layers created by the seemingly random openings, as well as a complex, haphazard character resulting from the movement and behaviour of the tenants. This mixture of necessity and contingency led to a new, three-dimensional expanse and a diversely articulated space. Save this picture!Courtesy of UID ArchitectProject gallerySee allShow lessDaegu Gosan Public Library Competition Entry / Land+Civilization Compositions and Im…ArticlesBusan Opera House Competition Proposal / IaN+ArticlesProject locationAddress:Fukuyama-city, HiroshimaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Wheelchair theft seen as new low

first_img‘Youths were spotted holding up traffic with the wheelchair getting a ‘laugh’ out of it…’THE theft of a wheelchair that was a young boy’s “only form of independence,” has been seen as a “sickening new low” for a family that has battled hardship for the last three years in Thomondgate. 16-year-old Shane Dundon has cerebral palsy and is now house bound because of the actions of a number of youths who stole the wheelchair from the front porch of the family home in Thomondgate last Sunday. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mother of six, Theresa Dundon, told the Limerick Post that the seat and frame of the chair were found the following day in Hartigan Villas after youths took the wheels and used them for a horse-drawn sulky kart.“It is bad enough trying to get the council to repair the house, but taking Shane’s only form of independence has really knocked his confidence. He’s upstairs in his room now and can’t or wont come down. He started in St Nessan’s recently and that was a big step for him. I mean, my son has welts on his hands from having to crawl in and out the front door. This is no life for a boy who has suffered to this stage of his life”.Theresa’s and the lives of her family have taken many set backs as the Limerick woman had to bury her college going son who was murdered in the UK during a random act of violence. With five children now, four of whom live with here in the “decrepit house” in Thomondgate, Theresa says that she has been living on empty promises from the local authority to get her house wheelchair friendly.“The house is in a very bad way, the shower doesn’t work, the toilet is in a state, the backgarden is like a swimming pool and it’s gone from bad to worse”.The Dundon family had to move from their original home in Hartigan Villas as the house next-door to their former home was petrol bombed and the council moved them for their own safety.“I had heroin addicts in the garden shooting up and for fear I had to sleep on the couch. We were all in fear of what random act could happen next and even my son crawled out to the front green at 6am scared out of his wits. The council moved us after the lady next door had her house petrol bombed. Now we have been put into this house and they have just forgotten about us. Letters go unanswered, promises go unfulfilled and I’m told there’s no money there to put in a few ramps.“It broke my heart to hear Shane say to me, ‘Mam, if I fell outside and broke my neck maybe then they would do something then’”.Shane’s sister, Nicole, says that this is not the first incident involving a group of up to eight youths “who are taking children’s bikes, hubcaps from cars and stuff like that, but it has taken a step too far this time.Gardai at Mayorstone are investigating.Nicole’s frustration continued when she added that the perpetrators of the wheelchair theft are aged “as young as 12 and 13. They shouldn’t go unpunished because of their age. It makes me sick to think that you cant even leave a wheelchair in your own porch without it being stolen.” Advertisement Facebook Email Print WhatsAppcenter_img Previous articleBowie’s career under the spotlightNext articleLimerick FC could win title this weekend admin NewsLocal NewsWheelchair theft seen as new lowBy admin – September 27, 2012 720 Twitter Linkedinlast_img read more

Struggling health department asking for more staff

Pinterest Facebook Ector County Health Department Director Gino Solla talks to a visitor in his office.  1 of 3 Ector County Health Department Director Gino Solla looks over a report in his office.  Ector County Health DepartmentOne day last month, Ector County residents seeking preventative care arrived to the county’s Health Department Building to see a sign on the front door: “Clinic closed today.”The clinic at 221 N. Texas Ave. couldn’t open that day, Health Department Director Gino Solla said, due to the department’s only two nurses both being out. Solla said this is the first time in his 15-year tenure as director he has had to close the clinic for an entire day.“I don’t have the license of a nurse that I can grab a syringe and start giving vaccines,” Solla said. “When the nurses are not here, close down the clinic. We’re out of business.”Closures are a recurring problem for the department, often having to close their clinic several hours early due to the lack of staff, and with the amount of people that come to the Health Department’s clinic; the wait can be quite long for those who do come for care. Landgraf staffer resigns following investigation WhatsApp The small staff of the department is the result of several years of budget cuts by county commissioners in a struggling local economy. In 2015, the health department had a budget of $1,695,725. Over a period of two budget cycles, that number was cut down to $1,351,242, around a quarter of their budget.With those budget cuts came staff cuts, Solla had to cut four full-time positions, bringing the department staff down from 15 to 11, including himself. That included two of their full-time nurses, leaving only two left.The primary function of the Health Department is to prevent and contain the outbreak of communicable diseases. Unlike the Ector County Hospital District, which treats people once they become ill, the health department tries to prevent the illness in the first place. Those who come to their clinic are there for vaccine shots, STD screenings, or tuberculosis testing. The clinic is particularly important to those who are struggling financially.“We are the safety net for people that don’t have health insurance or a means to pay,” Solla said. “If someone comes in and says ‘I don’t have the financial resources,’ we waive our fees.”But if budget cuts to the department continue, Solla is worried those functions may not be possible.“I don’t see where we can cut anymore without cutting services,” Solla said. “The commissioners will have to decide if they want to continue to provide clinical services from the Health Department.”And some staff members have been quitting out of frustration with the limited budget, Solla said. A long-term sanitarian, who handles duties such as restaurant and pool inspections, left abruptly around three weeks ago, and the office manager will be leaving the department soon after 26 years of working there.“They’re tired of not being able to give the citizens their services,” he said. “We’re giving them lip service instead of services.”With discussions for the next budget year beginning Tuesday, Solla said he has some proposals for expanding the department he plans to bring forward to the commissioners’ court. He plans to ask the court for another sanitarian position, a part-time secretary, and two more full-time nurses.Solla said he’s hoping that due to the recent increase in oil prices and land value, there will be more revenue available to prevent any further budget cuts.County Judge Ron Eckert said it is too premature at this point to say exactly what will be done to the department budgets, but that options will be explored throughout the numerous budget hearings. Eckert said they have not received any final certified values, but based upon preliminary values, there should be an increase in tax dollars and revenue, but not considerably more.“We haven’t reached the full extent of the boom cycle yet, and there’s catch-up time for values to catch up with the economy,” Eckert said.With the decrease in staff, came an increase in communicable diseases. Health Department records show that from 2011 to 2017, patients seen for sexually transmitted diseases increased from 866 to 1,328. The number of Ector County residents with sexually transmitted infections increased from 558 per 10,000 people in 2012 to 726.3 per 10,000 people in 2017.And with the staff cuts, Solla said they had to turn away around double that amount of patients. Solla attributed this increase in patients to the closure of Planned Parenthood in Odessa in 2011, which provided STD testing and contraceptives.“I believe the Texas legislators made a big mistake when they cut funding to Planned Parenthood,” Solla said, “because Planned Parenthood was our savior in collaborating with us in fulfilling that need.”Solla said he hoped Ector County residents would pass the sales tax assistance district whenever it next comes up for election, which would create a new 1.25 percent sales tax on goods sold in unincorporated Ector County. Officials estimate it would raise around $15 million a year, more than a quarter of the county’s $59 million expenditure budget.“I feel that will help us not only expand, but help us catch up to the growth that the county is experiencing in new residents,” Solla said.

Brundidge council reduces debt

first_img The Brundidge City Council voted Tuesday to use the $500,000 proceeds from the city’s Utility Fund Revenue Warrants to pay down on the North Industrial Park loan.On May 15, 2016, the city purchased 222 acres of property adjacent to Southern Classic Food Group on the north side of town for potential industrial growth. The city paid $1.2 million for the property with financing by First National Bank at the rate of 2.75 percent for 10 years.Brundidge City Manager Britt Thomas using the proceeds from the Utility Fund Revenue Warrants to pay down the loan will reduce the payments on the loan and maintain a cash flow within the city. The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Email the author Skip The property was purchased from siblings, Jodi Klugel, Russell Regentine and Peggy Regentine, who inherited the land from their mother, Margaret Regentine.At the time of the purchase, Brundidge Mayor Jimmy Ramage said the property is located on the main line of the CSX Railroad and will lower the number of competitors who are vying for industrial locations with rail access, making the property a prime site for future industrial growth.In other business, the council passed a resolution to notify the Secretary of State of a change in the type of voting machines used by the city.

Former military man in custody for allegedly gunning down police officer

first_imgkali9/iStock(AUBURN, Ala.) — A former military man is in custody for allegedly gunning down an Auburn, Alabama, police officer and wounding two other officers, authorities said.Grady Wayne Wilkes, 29, was arrested Monday morning after an overnight manhunt, said Auburn Police Chief Paul Register.Wilkes allegedly fired at three officers when they responded to a “domestic disturbance” at the Arrowhead mobile home park Sunday night.The shooting killed officer William Buechner who had been with the department for 13 years, said Register.The two injured officers — Webb Sistrunk and Evan Elliott — are expected to recover, Register said.The chief said this is the first time an Auburn officer has been killed during his 31 years at the department.“This is probably the worst day of my time here. Words cannot express the loss,” the chief said. “We’re just trying to be there with our officers and those families right now.”Wilkes is charged with capital murder, three counts of attempted murder and second-degree domestic violence, authorities said. Prosecutors said they plan to pursue the death penalty.Wilkes, who had been in the military for a number of years, had no run-ins with local police until the Sunday night shooting, said Register. The chief did not elaborate on Wilkes’ military service.Forty-three officers have died in the line of duty this year, down 34% from the same time period last year, according to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund.“Three courageous young men … went to protect us,” Auburn Mayor Ron Anders said at a news conference. “We’re very sorry that we have lost an officer in the line of duty.

IS IT TRUE we are hearing that several Evansville City Councilmen and taxpayers are disappointed with Mayor Winnecke for not holding public hearings concerning the design, costs, and location of the proposed the $28 million dollars Deaconnes Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …that some people are now saying that the Mayor has seemly adopted a benevolent dictator style of managing City Government?IS IT TRUE that last week we predicted that the Mayor will stack the City Council Chambers at this evening City Council meeting with supporters of the proposed $28 million dollars Deaconess Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …when the Mayor makes his public pitch to City Council this evening to build the Deaconess Aqua Center at Garvin Park we hope that they will ask him to give them a detailed breakdown on the legal agreement made between him and Deaconess Hospital concerning the naming rights of this projects?IS IT TRUE we hope that Mayor Winnecke will also give City Council detailed information concerning the role that EVSC is going to play in the development of the Deaconess Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?IS IT TRUE we still stand by our prediction that once the $28 million Deaconnes Aquatic Center is finished Mayor Winnecke will sign a contract with the local YMCA to manage the new Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …we hope that this evening the Mayor will provide City Council with detailed information concerning the financial commitments he made with the officials at the YMCA to manage the Deaconess Aquatic Center once it is built?IS IT TRUE that “Jacobsville Join In” is sponsored by ECHO Housing and received their operating funds from the Evansville DMD?  …recently they closed their North Main Street offices without fanfare?…we hope the reason for the abrupt closing of “Jacobsville Join In” office located on North Main Street didn’t have anything to do with the current “Forensic Audit” being conducted at ECHO Housing Corporation?  …it’s time for the officials at DMD and ECHO Housing Corporation to come forward and make a public statement concerning this issue?IS IT TRUE we are told when Mayor Winnecke didn’t allow his Deputy Mayor to publically welcome the President of the United States to Evansville recently it really hurt the credibility of his Deputy Mayor status?IS IT TRUE we are extremely pleased that Evansville City Council member and well-known animal advocate Missy Mosby took a public stand concerning the cat freezing controversy at the Spencer County Animal Shelter? …we commend Ms. Mosby for contacting the Spencer County Sheriffs Department and turning over the text messages of the shelter’s workers to the authorities? IS IT TRUE we are told that Missy Mosby has also contacted a friend in law enforcement and he has handed over pertinent information concerning the Spencer County cat freezing controversy over to the Indiana State Police? …we are also been told that letters and newspaper articles have been turned over to officials of the state and national Humane Society and PETA? …Ms. Mosby has declared that she won’t stop fighting for the humane treatment of animals? …we give five (5) cheers to Missy Mosby and her supporters for standing up for the humane treatment of animals and their rights?IS IT TRUE that the McCurdy Hotel water bill and sewer issue has been out of the news lately? …we know like to if this $1.5 million water and sewer bill have been paid or if a settlement has been made?IS IT TRUE that Evansville City County Attorney Joshua A. Claybourn writes an interesting blog entitled “Finding Our Sense of National Identity”…we highly recommend that you read it because it’s extremely informative?IS IT TRUE since the revelation that Evansville City Controller Russ Lloyd Jr., CPA hasn’t paid the $369,000 in Victory Theater bills for 2017 we wonder if he has taken the $369,000 from the 2018 city budget to pay for the operating expenses of the Victory Theater for 2017?  …we also wonder how City Controller Lloyd is going to find the money to pay for the Victory Theater bills for 2018? …we hope that this question will be asked at the current City of Evansville budget hearings?IS IT TRUE in all of this hubbub we have also learned that there will be another arena football team coming to Evansville and will be called the Indiana Firebirds?…it is expected that the Firebirds will make Ford Center their home and while we wish them well, Evansville has not been a place that semi-professional football has found financial success?…if the Firebirds can’t draw more paying customers than the Icemen, Thunderbolts, or Bluecats have they are destined for a spot on that list of 50 something pro sports teams that have flamed out in Evansville?…with rents what they are and tickets bringing what they will it will take average paying crowds of 5,000 to have a viable indoor football team?…that is a long shot if there ever was one?Todays “Readers Poll” question is: Where should the proposed Deaconess Aquatic Center be built?”Please take time and read our articles entitled “STATEHOUSE Files, CHANNEL 44 NEWS, LAW ENFORCEMENT, READERS POLL, BIRTHDAYS, HOT JOBS” and “LOCAL SPORTS”.  You now are able to subscribe to get the CCO daily.If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us [email protected] FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
