The FTSE 250 stock currently has a price-to-earnings ratio of 23 and earnings per share are 25p. The company cancelled its interim dividend but hopes remain for a full-year dividend.With the country getting vaccinated and gradually emerging from this latest lockdown, optimism prevails. However, worries of further Covid-19 case surges and potential mutant strains urge caution.Emergency boiler repairs have kept plumbers busy over the winter months, and that should have helped Polypipe maintain a level of business as usual. But risks posed to the business include inflation and post-Brexit after-effects. Inflation could cause raw material prices to increase. There are already signs of this happening throughout the construction industry. And it’s possible Brexit has disrupted Polypipe’s supply chain or increased product costs. Either of these scenarios would impact revenues.If I owned Polypipe shares, I’d continue to hold. Whether I consider buying will depend on its 2020 full-year results and future outlook, at today’s price it’s not a cheap stock. Polypipe’s final results for FY20 are due next week. I’ll be watching. FTSE 250 stock and plastic pipe manufacturer Polypipe Group (LSE:PLP) is on the acquisition trail. The £1.4bn company is snapping up businesses that complement its offerings and is strengthening its grip as a leading supplier.In its last annual report, the Polypipe Chair said 2019 market conditions had been tough (sales were down) but Polypipe was making progress and it planned to focus on growing M&A in 2020. Unfortunately, the pandemic struck and times were tough for a while. But it began steering a recovery and has continued to make acquisitions.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…Strengthening this FTSE 250 stockLast month Polypipe acquired London Topco Limited (known as ADEY) for £210m. ADEY is a sector leader in providing magnetic filters and chemicals that improve energy efficiency in water-based heating systems for the residential market. It’s a company with a good record of growth and profitability. This acquisition is a great fit for Polypipe’s existing offerings and will help grow its target market. Polypipe’s customers include housing developers, plumbing, and heating installers and specialist distributors.The focus on improving energy efficiency is also highly appropriate for now when environmental regulations are tightening. By next year, it’s expected that filter installations in every new-build heating system will be compulsory. That’s because they can reduce carbon emissions by 7%.Polypipe paid for ADEY through a mixture of debt and an equity placing. However, diluting Polypipe shares and drawing down debt, takes the shine off the initial upside gain from this acquisition.Acquiring Nu-Heat HoldingsPrior to the ADEY acquisition, Polypipe acquired heating systems supplier Nu-Heat Holdings for £27m on a cash-free, debt-free basis. This is another company that fits well with the FTSE 250 group’s strategy and complements its brands. Like ADEY, Nu-Heat also has a history of growth, profitability and good cash flow generation.Martin Payne, Polypipe CEO said the buy would help it develop new ways to integrate underfloor heating, heat pumps, and air-based climate management systems.Cautious optimismIn a recent trading update, the board said it expects underlying operating profit to come in around £40m. This is a slight improvement on previous expectations. But it’s a lot less than 2019, when underlying operating profit rose to £78.1m.The company has begun 2021 with a strong order book though and the Polypipe share price is up 12% in a year.

Foto de Andrea Mann.[Episcopal News Service – Dar es-Salam, Tanzania] Durante la Conferencia Gálatas 6:2, los participantes de seis provincias de la Comunión Anglicana encontraron que en los temas de identidad anglicana y episcopal, educación teológica, migración, trata de personas y medioambiente, sus afinidades superan notablemente sus diferencias.El reunirse para debatir los retos que afectan a la Iglesia y el mundo y buscar soluciones le recordaba a la Rda. Vicentia Kgabe, rectora del Colegio Universitario de la Transfiguración, en Grahamstown, Sudáfrica, de la importancia de la comunidad y de la riqueza de la Comunión Anglicana.“Los vínculos del afecto siguen siendo más fuertes”, dijo Kgabe. Pero la Iglesia, añadió, necesita fortalecer su voz en el mundo.Veintitrés personas que representan a seis provincias de la Comunión Anglicana —Burundi, África Central, África del Sur, Tanzania, África Occidental y la Iglesia Episcopal de Estados Unidos— se reunieron del 30 de marzo al 3 de abril en una conferencia destinada a desarrollar un modelo de colaboración que capacitará a las provincias a compartir mutuamente las cargas de la misión. Durante la conferencia, el grupo llevó en oración a la vecina Burundi, que experimenta actualmente conflicto y violencia políticos.El versículo bíblico de referencia, “Ayúdense unos a otros a llevar sus cargas y así cumplirán la ley de Cristo”, apoyó la labor y la fraternidad de los participantes.Uno de los resultados más esperanzadores de la conferencia “es la comprensión y el reconocimiento de que somos parte los unos de los otros como hermanos y hermanas en Cristo”, dijo el obispo Brian Marajh, de la Diócesis de George en la Iglesia Anglicana de África del Sur, quien añadió que es importante poner esto en el contexto de “donde nos encontramos en la Comunión Anglicana… el imperativo del Evangelio de ser parte, en vez de estar aparte”.Patricia Kisare, funcionaria de asuntos internacionales de la Iglesia Episcopal, con sede en Washington, D.C. y el obispo Jacob Ayeebo, de Tamale, Iglesia Anglicana de Ghana, hablan con una de las hermanas de la Comunidad de Santa María, una orden de la Iglesia Anglicana de Tanzania. Foto de Andrea Mann.Los problemas de la sexualidad humana y de los matrimonios de parejas del mismo sexo han tensado las relaciones en la Comunión Anglicana desde principios de este siglo.En enero, una mayoría de los primados anglicanos exigió “consecuencias” para la Iglesia Episcopal y recomendó que se restringiera su participación en los diálogos ecuménicos y en algunos organismos de la Comunión Anglicana. Las decisiones de los primados en su reunión en Cantórbery, Inglaterra, se produjeron como respuesta a las decisiones de la Convención General en 2015 de cambiar el lenguaje canónico que define el matrimonio y la autorización de ritos matrimoniales que se aplicarían tanto a parejas del mismo sexo como de sexos opuestos.La Conferencia Gálatas 6:2 se había planeado antes de la reunión de los primados, en parte como respuesta a esas viejas diferencias, pero también como enfoque cambiante a las relaciones misionales y las asociaciones entre las iglesias de Estados Unidos y África. La conferencia se concibió durante una reunión en octubre de 2014 en Nueva York donde los seis primados que asistieron manifestaron su intención de crear asociaciones misionales entre sus iglesias.“Uno de los grandes logros de esta conferencia ha sido el fortalecimiento de nuestras relaciones como miembros unidos de nuestra familia anglicana global”, dijo el Rdo. Chuck K. Robertson, canónigo del obispo primado Michael Curry para el ministerio más allá de la Iglesia Episcopal. Robertson participó en la Conferencia Gálatas 6:2 como parte de la delegación de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Al compartir nuestras historias, en nuestras deliberaciones y decisiones, y en nuestra oración común, hemos profundizado la amistad y la confianza entre nosotros incluso al tiempo de comprometernos de nuevo con el trabajo decisivo que todos tenemos por delante”, añadió.“Estas personas están interesadas en trabajar en asociación, no en aislamiento”, dijo el Rdo. Canónigo Isaac Kawuki-Mukasa, que trabaja como encargado de las relaciones para África tanto de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá como de la Iglesia Episcopal.Kawuki-Mukasa ayudó a coordinar la conferencia junto con el Rdo. Ranjit K. Mathews, encargado de las asociaciones de África de la Iglesia Episcopal y Patricia Kisare, funcionaria de asuntos internacionales de la Iglesia Episcopal, con sede en Washington, D.C. Entre los observadores se contaban Rebecca Linder Blachly, asesora principal para África del Departamento de Estado de EE.UU. en la Oficina de Religión y Asuntos Globales; Grace Kaiso, secretaria general del Consejo de Provincias Anglicanas de África y Andrea Mann, directora de relaciones globales de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá.“Siempre que haya una oportunidad para la Comunión de reunirse para trabajar sobre importantes asuntos de interés mutuo es algo bueno”, dijo Mann, añadiendo que esta conferencia fue de particular importancia porque los participantes buscaban desarrollar un modelo de colaboración que se proponía conducir a asociaciones provinciales. “Es la implementación concreta de una comisión de los primados a las provincias para que empecemos a hacer algo”.Los participantes y los organizadores están redactando una carta a los seis primados para compartir los resultados del grupo y sus recomendaciones de futura colaboración. Entre los participantes había obispos, sacerdotes, decanos y funcionarios de desarrollo, quienes, a través de la conferencia, trabajaron en pequeños grupos y compartieron sus historias y experiencias mientras debatían los nueve temas de la conferencia establecidos de antemano. Los nueve temas eran: sostenibilidad, salud/medio ambiente, trata de personas/migración, educación teológica/libertad religiosa y finanzas/pensiones.Al inicio de la conferencia los participantes hicieron un pacto entre sí de participar plenamente, de escuchar y de compartir sus historias. Fue en medio de un espíritu generoso y de narración de historias que empezaron a formarse las causas comunes y las conexiones.“Se han creado relaciones, ahora estamos en la senda los unos de los otros”, dijo el obispo David Rice, de la Diócesis de San Joaquín en California Central. “Esto nos permitirá hacer algo, recorrer esa senda juntos, llevarnos mutuamente las cargas”.Pese a las diferencias existentes en la Comunión Anglicana, como ha mostrado la Conferencia Gálatas 6:2, la Comunión tiene muchas más cosas en común que aquellas en las que discrepa, dijo Mathews.“Vamos a seguir comunicándonos en asociación basados en la misión común. Continuamos creyendo que lo que nos une es mucho más fuerte que lo que nos divide”, afirmó. “Es hora de que nos concentremos en lo que nos mantiene unidos. Esto es un ejemplo concreto de avance, y es por eso que es importante. Por muchísimo tiempo hemos permitido que otros definan lo que entendemos por asociación”.La Conferencia de Gálatas 6:2 fue sólo un ejemplo de las formas en que la Iglesia Episcopal y su Obispo Primado, Michael Curry, mantienen el diálogo con las provincias anglicanas en África. Por ejemplo, Curry viajará a Accra, Ghana, en mayo, para una reunión de la Consulta de Obispos Anglicanos en Diálogo, la cual comenzó en la Conferencia de Lambeth 2008 en respuesta a diferencias sobre uniones del mismo sexo y cuestiones más extensas de interpretación bíblica.La Conferencia Gálatas 6:2 tuvo lugar poco más de una semana antes del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, que reúne hasta tres representantes de cada provincia cada tres o cuatro años y que está programado para sesionar del 8 al 19 de abril en Zambia.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Celebrating 10 Years at Farm Science Review Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Purdue Celebrating 10 Years at Farm Science Review By Gary Truitt – Sep 16, 2014 As the Farm Science Review opened on Tuesday with a three-day run in London, Ohio, Purdue and Ohio State universities commemorated a decade of working together to make the event one of the largest agricultural expositions in the Midwest “We’re proud of our 10-year partnership with OSU at the Farm Science Review,” said Jay Akridge, Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue’s College of Agriculture. “As land-grant institutions, Purdue and Ohio State know the importance of investing in both education and agriculture. Educating farmers about new advances in production agriculture helps increase yields, sustainability and profits, which ultimately benefit our respective states.”The Farm Science Review draws about 130,000 farmers, growers, business people and students each year, nearly half of them from Indiana.The partnership has benefited both universities, the Farm Science Review and the farmers who attend it, said Chuck Gamble, manager of the event. “The Purdue partnership has given us the opportunity to market to a whole new demographic of farmers in Indiana,” Gamble said. “I look forward to seeing what the next decade of partnership will bring.”The importance of the Purdue-OSU partnership was recognized in 2011 when David Petritz, former dean of Purdue Agriculture, was inducted into the Farm Science Review Hall of Fame for his role in bringing the two public universities together.Highlighting this year’s review as be a dinner for Purdue agricultural alumni in the Tobin Building near Gate J on the review grounds. Jason Henderson, associate dean of Purdue Agriculture and director of Purdue Extension, Twas the featured speaker. This year’s Farm Science Review again will include education and information sessions covering some the latest trends and issues in the industry.Among Purdue representatives participating and the topics of their presentations are:* Roy Ballard, “A Year in the Life of a Food Hub” and “SARE Grant Funding for Your Farm or Business.”* Larry Caplan, “Maximizing Yield in the Vegetable Garden.”* Rob Chapman, “Grassland and Wildflower ID.”* Emily Eggleston, “Urban Land Leasing for Small Farms and Community Gardens.”* Lenny Farlee, “The Exclusion Solution: Fencing Deer Out” and “Steps to Successful Conservation Tree Planting.”* Mike Gunderson, “Farmers Brand Loyalty” and “Farm Risk Management Strategies that Work.”* Henderson, “Future of the Rural Economy.”* Chad Martin, “Grass: Bioenergy and Nutrient Management.”* Brian MacGowan, “Controlling Wildlife Damage Around the Home and Yard.”* Jim Mintert, “PLC, ARC, ARC-L or ARC-C?

printWhile TCU is attempting to become the seventh school to earn four consecutive College World Series berths and Missouri State’s sole appearance came in 2003, the Horned Frogs and Bears have more than a few things in common heading into their Super Regional showdown in Fort Worth.Starting Pitching TBAWhile MSU has yet to release their starting rotation plans because of the status of their ace Doug Still, TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said his team has a starting pitching set up in mind, but he is waiting to release the Horned Frogs’ plan until the Bears reveal their arms arrangement.Still is the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year, transferring from Jefferson College, totaling an 8-2 record to go along with a 2.66 earned run average, 85 strikeouts, and 24 walks in 98 innings of work.However, MSU head coach Keith Guttin has said what he plans to do if Still can pitch in Game 1 Saturday.“We don’t know honestly if Still is going to be able to start tomorrow and won’t know until tonight or tomorrow morning, depending on how he feels,” MSU head coach Keith Guttin said. “It will be Still, [Dylan] Coleman or [Jordan] Knutson Saturday and one of them Sunday and whoever is left on Monday.”Still pitched two games in the Fayetteville Regional last week, throwing 5.2 innings on 72 pitches in the round one game against Oklahoma State and 5.0 innings on 70 pitches with two days’ rest against the regional host, the Arkansas Razorbacks.“Tremendous, gritty performance,” Guitton said. “Going into it, honestly, I was hoping to get two or three innings and he just shut them down. He felt fine. Was in command, and we got five. It was a great effort. A gutty effort on his part in two days.”Guittin said if Still doesn’t start Game 1, right-hander Dylan Coleman or left-hander Jordan Knutson would start, and that Still would still be in the mix for Game 2 or Game 3 start.Knutson also carried a heavy workload last weekend for the Bears, pitching in all four regional games. He won in relief in games one and two, as well as recording his first save of 2017 in Game 7.Schlossnagle was less specific when addressing his starting rotation plan, leaving room for speculation.Maybe Schlossnagle decides to roll with his ace, sophomore right-hander Jared Janczak, who’s started and won a Super Regional game on the road against Texas A&M last season and is 2-1 in five postseason starts, including an eight-inning gem against Virginia in the Fort Worth Regional.He has earned the distinction of ace with a 9-0 record and 1.89 ERA season in 2017.From there, it’s anyone’s guess who could come next. Senior right-hander Brian Howard is undefeated in his last four postseason starts against Arizona State, Texas A&M, Coastal Carolina, and Dallas Baptist, and is TCU’s first back-to-back 10-game winner.Redshirt senior right-hander Mitchell Traver is 4-2 in six postseason starts and has surrendered one run in four home postseason appearances. In his last three starts this season against Cal, Texas, and Central Connecticut State, he has a 1.12 ERA, 21 strikeouts and just four walks.With those three pitchers starting in the Fort Worth regional, TCU won all three of its games. Janzcak, Howard, and Traver have a combined 15 starts, 10 wins and 98 innings pitched in NCAA Tournament action. But, Schlossnagle is hunting to find innings for left-hander Nick Lodolo in the NCAA Tournament, even if it means bringing his freshman All-American out of the bullpen for the first time.

He has five home runs as part of a .355 batting average, .523 slugging percentage, and a team-high 45 walks, all while missing five games.“There were times when I felt like moving him down in the order after Luken got hurt,” Scholssnagle said. “Both of these guys handle left-handed pitching, but he’s too valuable at the top of the order. He sets the tone leading off the game. He gives the rest of the lineup a chance to see what’s going on, and he may not get a hit or get on base every time, but you can count on it being at least five, six, or seven pitches in an at-bat, and there’s a lot of selflessness in that.”This season, Wade has gotten on base in nearly every game, reaching in 53 of 56 games he’s played.Wade and his Horned Frog teammates are sixth in the nation with 329 walks drawn. Of those 329, 115 have come all the way to score at a 34.9 percent clip. Missouri State is fourth in walks drawn with 346.“A lot of our wins correlate with our positive numbers in the free 90 feet battle, so we’re going to take what a pitcher gives us,” Wade said. “If he’s up there throwing strikes, we’re going to try to put good swings on balls, but when guys are competing like crazy and missing a few pitches here and there, you try to take deep counts and deep at bats. If they’re going to give us 90 feet, we’ll take it.”TCU ranks 26th in runs scored with 423. Missouri State ranks 24th with 430.First pitch for Game 1 of the Fort Worth Super Regional is set for 5 p.m. Saturday at Lupton Stadium.

He struck out 69 batters in 73.2 innings.“For the future of our team and our program, I want Nick to have a chance to pitch in this kind of environment,” Schlossnagle said. “That may be a start, that may be out of the bullpen. We got him a good sim game this week, practiced a few situations.”Lodolo pitched the opener of the last four regular-season series for TCU while Janczak missed time with a shoulder strain, and pitched the opener of the Big 12 tournament against Kansas. He finished 2-0 with three no-decisions.However, Schlossnagle said TCU’s pitching riches may not matter this weekend. “The Super Regional is the one time of year where pitching depth really doesn’t matter,” Schlossnagle said. “It’s about the first four or five or six guys, unless you get an extra-inning game or you’re getting blown out and you want to save some innings on the high-end guys. He’s certainly one of those five or six guys. We’ll see how the games go day to day.”The Horned Frogs utilized just four relievers: Jake Eissler, Cal Coughlin, Sean Wymer, and Durbin Feltman for 5.1 innings in their three-game sweep of the regional. Traver departed with a 3-1 lead in the eighth inning against CCSU. Janczak left with a 4-1 lead against Virginia in the ninth inning. Howard was jogged to the dugout in the seventh with a 14-2 lead. Six relief pitchers plus Lodolo went untouched.MSU has two-headed monster at the back end of its bullpen between junior right-hander Jake Fromson and senior right-hander Bryan Young.Fromson, used primarily in the middle innings, won MVC Pitcher of the Year this season with the second best rate of walks and hits allowed per inning, 0.78, in the nation to go along with an 8-3 record, three saves and 85 strikeouts in 72.2 innings. Young, MSU’s all-time appearance leader, has saved eight games for the Bears this season to go along with a 1-1 record, 1.53 earned run average, 47 strikeouts, 17 walks, and hitters are batting a paltry .118 against him.TCU pitchers are 14th in the country in strikeouts per nine innings at 9.3. Missouri State pitchers are 22nd overall at 9.0.Lineups stocked with power and patience “I think we’re pretty similar to TCU’s lineup with some boppers who put the ball over the fence, and some guys who grind out and win at-bats,” MSU All-American third baseman Jake Burger said.Burger compares similarly to TCU catcher Evan Skoug, an All-American in his own right, winning Co-Big 12 Player of the Year honors after hitting 18 home runs and driving in 62 runs.

The head of the Mexico City government, Marcelo Ebrard, also promised that justice would be done. Reporters Without Borders asks these officials or their aides to keep it informed about developments in the investigation. The motive has yet to be established.An investigative magazine that has been going for more than 10 years, Contralínea has been the target of intimidation and judicial harassment, especially since 2007, when its reporting proved embarrassing for the national oil company PEMEX.This double murder has compounded the widespread feeling of terror resulting from the federal offensive against drug trafficking launched in December 2006, whose death toll now stand at 50,000. Until now, Mexico City had seemed much less exposed to the violence than the rest of the country.

The bodies of two women were found in a Mexico City park yesterday.“We strongly condemn this escalation of terror against journalists in what is already one of the hemisphere’s most dangerous and deadliest countries for the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Eighty journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000, six of them women. This double murder comes just a week after Humberto Millán Salazar, a presenter on Radio Formula and editor of the online newspaper A-Discusión, was murdered in the northwestern state of Sinaloa.“More and more journalists are faced with the choice between self-censorship or exile. Can the media survive in Mexico? The authorities have still not implemented an agreement on safety mechanisms for journalists that was signed nearly a year ago. We are waiting for the government to act.”Both aged 48, Yarce and González were kidnapped as they left their office and were strangled during the night of 31 August, Contralínea reported. According to the Federal District prosecutor’s office, their bodies were found yesterday in a park in the eastern district Iztapalapa. Radio Formula said their clothes had been removed, their hands and feet were bound and ropes were left around their necks.
