Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares UK shares are back on the defensive again as coronavirus-related news spooks investors. This time signs of escalating infection rates have sent stock markets lower. So have fresh quarantine measures slapped on travellers returning to Britain from Spain. Another stock market crash could be just around the corner should market confidence continue sinking.I’m not too worried, though. I’ve built my shares portfolio in the knowledge that market crashes should be expected as the economic cycle evolves. As long as you build a balanced portfolio of quality UK shares with strong balance sheets then your investments should easily hurdle any near-term trading difficulties and deliver great returns over the long run.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…Some experts don’t think that the British economy will bounce back from the coronavirus crisis until 2024. But this doesn’t mean that stock investors need to rip their hair out. Indeed, there are many UK shares out there that stand to gain from a severe and extended UK recession.2 top UK sharesUnfortunately economic downturns lead to an increase in the number of insolvencies. The number in the UK has already ballooned since the beginning of 2020. And there are plenty of companies in danger of going to the wall in the coming quarters.It’s a phenomenon that will drive demand for the services of UK firms like Begbies Traynor Group. This AIM company provides a range of services for distressed businesses including beginning insolvency procedures. Indeed, executive chair Ric Traynor recently told the Financial Times that the number of insolvencies will be “in excess of what we saw in 2008” as liabilities build up and the government withdraws its financial support.This tough economic environment also stands to benefit Manolete Partners, a company that funds insolvency litigation cases both large and small. In fact this AIM-quoted stock is already witnessing an uplift in client activity. It announced earlier this month that new case enquiries are “at all-time record levels [and] running at around double the rate we had this time last year”. And it has the financial clout to make the most of this tough economic environment.Another way to ride the UK recessionFinally, I believe that H&T Group is one of those counter-cyclical UK shares you might want to buy in expectation of a long economic downturn. This particular AIM stock is one of the largest pawnbroker chains in Britain. It also offers loan services and buys gold from customers.Profits took a hit as the coronavirus crisis forced it to close its shops. But trade has been brisk since then and H&T commented a month ago that “we are reassured by the volume of customers being serviced since we have safely re-opened our stores”. I expect its services to remain in high demand, too.These UK shares show that the stock market is packed with companies that should thrive during an economic downturn. However, they are just a few of the top stocks out there that I’d buy today as the UK recession kicks in. I reckon now is a great time to go shopping for stocks.

The IMImobile (LSE:IMO) share price has gone beserk! On Monday 7 December the price of the AIM-listed cloud software company shot up an incredible 50%. So what exactly happened to see the London firm’s market cap skyrocket from £329m to £489m overnight?On Friday, the IMImobile share price stood at 402.5p. But at the opening bell on Monday, it immediately rocketed to nearly 600p.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…Cisco buys IMImobileUS telecoms giant Cisco swooped for IMImobile, confirmed by a company RNS to the London Stock Exchange on Monday morning. Cisco agreed to pay £543m for IMImobile. It means that anyone who has spotted the IMImobile share price and invested will be entitled to receive 595p in cash for their IMImobile shares.Cisco said the reason why it decided to make the move is so it could get access to IMImobile’s automated customer experience software. The US giant praised IMImobile’s software package, saying it made it “easy for businesses to communicate with a customer in that customer’s channel of choice” as well as allowing it to manage interactions “across the entire customer journey“.That’s all very well and good. But why would a $187bn market cap behemoth like Cisco have a minnow like IMImobile on its radar? Growth challengeWhen companies grow to the size of Cisco, or Google, or Apple, it’s very hard for them to generate growth and improve their share price organically. So they turn to the business tradition of using their massive reserves to buy out the competition instead.Legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch said it best back in 2009. “If you’ve got the cash, go out and buy or bury your competition…Steal their employees. Steal their R&D people. Bury them.”It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. And companies are competing not only on the quality of their products, but also on the “interactive” experience they can offer their customers, Cisco said. So taking over the competition in the form of IMImobile instead of having to reverse-engineer their product? It keeps Cisco as the market leader in its field.IMIMobile share price now Even if the IMImobile team would prefer to stay independent and build their own products, it’s very difficult for a publicly-listed company to ignore a massive cash offer. Especially as the 595p per share bid comes at a level 51.6% higher than the share price the day before Cisco made the approach.When the company originally joined AIM in 2014, the IMImobile share price was just 120p. When a takeover like this happens, it can mean a huge payday for long-term shareholders. Suddenly the £5,000, £10,000 or £50,000 they have invested over a number of years jumps up by 50%.So for more adventurous investors, it can be worth looking outside traditional FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 companies.What to look for It’s a huge result for IMImobile shareholders today. So as a long-term investor, it’s often worth considering which businesses might be a target for larger companies. Well-regarded AIM-listed firms like Gamma Communications and Team17 could be worth a look, in my opinion.Companies I would be looking for include innovative smaller firms with trademarked or patented intellectual property that the bigger fish in the pond cannot easily copy.

Submit an Event Listing By Bellah ZuluPosted Mar 20, 2013 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Smithfield, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Anglican Communion News Service] Walking into the Holy Cross Hospice in Gaborone, Botswana, one may be greeted with charming smiles and the sweet aroma of food emanating from the kitchen. The environment is so full of life and welcoming. This is not exactly what most people would expect.For many people, a hospice, being a place for the terminally ill, would be a sombre and lifeless place. But not at Holy Cross.“When I came to this place, I was not able to walk but now I can,” revealed David Brasso Matlhoki with a smile. He is one of the terminally ill patients at the hospice. “This hospice gave me the care, support and treatment I needed. I would like to see it grow since it’s very important to us.”He added: “I encourage other churches in Africa to come to Botswana and see how this place operates so that they can go back and open hospices.” Matlhoki is just one of the more than 20 clients currently benefiting from medical, nursing, spiritual and nutritional care provided by the hospice.The other patients were waiting for their lunch in the courtyard while playing board games. The volunteer staff also were busy performing various tasks meant to help the patients “live their last days with dignity by making the best of each day.” Smiles, courage and hard work are evident even in the face of one of life’s most daunting psychological challenges.“I almost committed suicide before coming to the hospice because I didn’t know I was going to make it,” revealed another patient, Boitumelo Mabolola. “Before coming to the hospice, I was always home alone because I was bedridden and had no one to take care of me. Coming to the hospice made me meet other people that are going through similar circumstances and it helped me grow spiritually and accept my status,” she said.HIV/AIDS still remains a major challenge for Africa and the world as a whole and ranks highly among terminal illnesses suffered by people on the continent. Botswana is no exception, having one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in Africa.According to reports, it is the second highest in the world, topped only by Swaziland. Though the government has put in place various mechanisms such as massive sensitization programs and the provision of anti-retrovirals (ARVs) and other services to address the spread of the virus, the general scenario is still worrying.For this reason the Anglican Communion makes health issues a top priority, and through the Anglican Health Network the church is a major and strategic partner in working towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and delivering health improvements to the poor. In the face of such challenges, Anglicans in Botswana did not turn a blind eye to the HIV situation in their country. They responded by drawing from the Gospel call to “go out and heal the sick.”In 1994, members of the Holy Cross Cathedral of the Anglican Diocese of Botswana, in conjunction with the Rotary Club, founded the Holy Cross Hospice using volunteers and the strengths of a common Anglican identity in mobilizing resources and expertise. The hospice is a registered welfare and non-governmental organization based in the capital Gaborone and established specifically to “respond to the palliative care services” for persons living with terminal illnesses.Running a hospice is a unique calling and hospices are important to the dignity of any society. Erik Isaksson, acting manager for the hospice, agreed.“Meeting a person who is in the final stages of their life often gives access to the very important, personal and urgent needs of a person and this, to me, is like being given a very special gift,” he said. “We are now putting more emphasis on end-of-life and focusing on people with life threatening and progressive illness. We direct our services to all, regardless of race or religious affiliation.”Despite the ability of the hospice to provide holistic care and also to address the physical, spiritual, social and psychological needs of the patients at no cost at all, it faces a major financial challenges. All the clients are from impoverished backgrounds and could never afford to pay even if they were asked to do so.It goes without saying, therefore, that financial support would increase the hospice’s capacity to handle clients and help them spread their reach beyond Gaborone, which is currently the only city from which they accept clients.Pearl Ncube is the volunteer resource mobilizer for the hospice and has been working hard to source funding. She is proud about the success of the hospice over the years and explains the work model that has helped the hospice thrive.“This hospice totally relies on donor funds. We have always chosen to deal with volunteer workers because we cannot afford to have fully employed and paid experts due to financial challenges. We also like to work with interns from colleges and universities,” she said.The Holy Cross Hospice may be facing challenges but this has not lessened its resolve to help people, many of whom are living the last days of their life. It has received awards for its exceptional service and commitment to supporting the people of Botswana.“We are the first hospice to operate in Botswana,” explained Ncube. “We have been a leader in the provision of palliative care throughout the years and have been able to rehabilitate our clients, most of whom have been able to go back to their families and live normal lives.”Though small, the hospice has a gym, a massage room and a lounge area. Clients are encouraged to eat healthy foods and also take time to mingle with others. They are also taught various skills such as basketry and other artistic skills to help them settle down well and also for them to have a source of income.Immaculate Tambala is a volunteer social worker at the hospice. “Since most of [the clients] are HIV positive, we teach them a lot about what the disease is all about and how it should be managed,” she said. “We also counsel the clients and find out what they really need. We do a comprehensive assessment of the support system that they have in their homes to make sure they are well embraced and supported in their own homes and communities.”The hospice has also tried to tackle some of its challenges by cooperating with other hospices in Botswana as manager Isaksson explained. “We are cooperating with another hospice in Metsimothlabe run by the [Roman] Catholic Church. They are a state-of-the-art inpatient hospice and help us with patients who need 24-hour care,” he said. “We are also in close dialogue with the oncology department at the local hospital, Princess Marina, for referrals. We can proudly say that we have been an active part of the formation of the Botswana Hospice and Palliative Care Association.”Social worker Tambala added: “Working with the terminally ill can be stressing and tiring. Some situations are so sad but I get to learn a lot from the clients. It gives me an opportunity to try and understand what the clients are going through. I wish other people would also see the value of this.” Africa, Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Washington, DC Tags An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Belleville, IL This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Collierville, TN Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Photographs: Liao YushengText description provided by the architects. With a history unlike any other, Wall House 2 redefines the limits of architectural design as a function of context in both time and culture. 28 years after the completion of the initial designs and one year after the death of architect John Hejduk, construction began in a completely different environment than where it was initially imagined.Save this picture!© Liao YushengThe house is a study of the relationship between inside and outside and is reminiscent of Corbusian architecture, although a bit more eccentric.Save this picture!© Liao YushengThe residence was initially designed by American architect John Hejduk in 1973 for a fellow faculty member at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union in New York, to be constructed in Ridgefeld, Connecticut. Due to the high estimated costs of construction in the wooded area, the project was put on hold. Save this picture!© Liao YushengPassing from potential client to potential client, it was always being dropped before the beginning of construction due to lack of funding. That is until a development company in Groningen, the Netherlands, took special interest in the project and decided to fund the construction at 2,500 square feet. It was not until the unexpected death of John Hejduk that construction on the house began.Save this picture!© Liao YushengWall House 2 is admired for it’s fusion of Surrealist sculpture, Cubist paintings and architecture, which reflect John Hejduk’s identity as an artist, poet, educator and architect. Inspiration for his work often came from Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe, where he learned to focus on the more flat dimensions of architectural form as well as the focus on pure volumes.Save this picture!© Liao YushengOrganized around a central axis of horizontal and vertical plane, a three-dimensionality allows for experiencing the spaces. Accompanying these, a two-dimensional plane disconnects but at the same time groups the functional spaces which appear separate from one another while emphasizing the poetic nature of the residence. Save this picture!© Liao YushengUse of light colors encourages visual distinction between volumes, which are accessible by means of a spiral staircase that sits at the backside of the wall. Dividing the space, the wall appears to be freestanding through the careful design of Hejduk, as it is supported with a glass connection to the volumes.Save this picture!© Liao Yusheng”The wall is a neutral condition. That’s why it’s always painted gray. And the wall represents the same condition as the time of the hypotenuse in the Diamond Houses – it is the greatest moment of repose, and at the same time the greatest tension. It is a moment of passage. The wall heightens that sens of passage, and by the same token, its thinness heightens the sense of it being just a momentary condition… what I call the moment of the present.”Save this picture!© Liao YushengEntering the house, the visitor encounters a flight of stairs which leads to the study, kitchen and dining room, all biomorphically shaped spaces with much character. The first floor contains a bedroom, and the top floor holds the living room. Each volume appears to be cantilevered, but in actuality the floating masses are supported by a grid of columns. This adds to the dramatic design of Wall House 2, as the large wall becomes symbolic, not structural.Save this picture!© Liao YushengAn interesting aspect of the recently constructed Wall House 2 is its accessibility; the owners have divided the residence into public, semi-public and private quarters, so that the architecture may be experienced and interpreted by all. Artists are invited to participate in the residence program in which they reside in the building to research the poetics of space in architecture.Save this picture!© Liao YushengSaid by John Hejduk himself, “If a painter could by a single transformation take a three dimensional still life and paint it on a canvas into a natura morta, could it be possible for the architect to take the natura morta of a painting and, by a single transformation, build it into a still life?”Save this picture!© Liao YushengProject gallerySee allShow lessPennDesign 2012 Spring Lecture SeriesArticlesStudent Housing for TU Delft Campus / Studioninedots + HVDNArticles Share Year: Houses “COPY” AD Classics: Wall House 2 / John Hejduk, Thomas Muller/van Raimann Architekten & Otonomo ArchitectenSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Wall House 2 / John Hejduk, Thomas Muller/van Raimann Architekten & Otonomo Architecten Save this picture!© Liao YushengWritten by Megan Sveiven Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/205541/ad-classics-wall-house-2-john-hejduk Clipboard “COPY” Architects: John Hejduk, Thomas Muller/van Raimann Architekten & Otonomo Architecten Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeJohn Hejduk, Thomas Muller/van Raimann Architekten & Otonomo ArchitectenOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesGroningenThe NetherlandsPublished on February 06, 2012Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: Wall House 2 / John Hejduk, Thomas Muller/van Raimann Architekten & Otonomo Architecten” 06 Feb 2012.

News Organisation Follow the news on Panama PanamaAmericas December 9, 2016 Find out more News PanamaAmericas “This criminal law reform represents a real step backwards in press freedom in a country where it has been widely respected,” the organisation said. “The three articles relating to freedom to inform destroy the capacity of the press to play its role in challenging the government. They are also draconian in that they provide for penalties of from two to five years in prison. This legislative reform is therefore dangerous and completely out of place, within a general context of decriminalisation of press offences,” Reporters Without Borders said.Six of the seven deputies on the government commission of the Panamanian legislative assembly on 7 February 2007 passed on first reading reform of the 449 articles of the criminal law, three of which – 187, 189 and 422 – restrict the freedom to publish and provide for heavy prison sentences. The three articles were thus worded following the commission’s approval:Article 187: “Anyone legally in possession of mail, recordings or documents not intended for publication, even if addressed to them personally, who publishes them without the required permission, will be punished, if publication causes harm, to a sentence of one to two years in prison, or its equivalent in daily fines, or a detention at weekend. Disclosure of documents essential to the understanding of history, science and the arts will not be considered to be an offence. The case will be closed in the case of forgiveness on the part of the complainant.”Article 189: “Whoever uses, amends, reproduces, copies or alters, partially or fully, to the detriment of a third party, his image and his restricted access personal details, or those of his family members, entered on registers or files or entered in computer, electronic or telematic data bases, will be punished with a prison sentence of two to four years. If this content or information is divulged, revealed or given to a third party, or published by this third party, the penalty will be from two to five years in prison. If the information is official, the sentence will be increased by one third.”Article 422: “Whoever reveals information in the political, diplomatic or police domain, involving state security, will be punished with a prison sentence of two to four years in prison.” Receive email alerts Canadian TV crew hoping to cover mining dispute fears being denied entry Reporters Without Borders has urged parliament not to back criminal law reform which passed its first reading on 7 February, three articles of which pose a very serious threat to freedom of expression and the press.The worldwide press freedom organisation also wondered what prompted this development, when the tendency in most of the American continent has been towards decriminalisation of press offences. News to go further Reporters Without Borders has condemned criminal law reform adopted by parliament at the first reading on 7 February, three articles of which pose a very serious threat to press freedom and provide for prison sentences if the law is broken. The organisation also expressed surprise at the move which goes against a regional tendency towards decriminalisation of press offences.

Tufts had been announced as a candidate for the role of acting director for the Interior Department earlier in the week. The official position of Director for the Interior Department has not been filled in 10 years. The office is currently being led by Deputy Inspector General Mary Kendall.According to NBC News, news of Tufts’ resignation from HUD comes at the end of a contentious week in regard to these rumors. The next inspector general at the Interior Department would become the lead investigator into allegations against the Interior Department’s Secretary Ryan Zinke, who has been accused of using taxpayer money to fund trips taken with his wife. Critics have argued that Tufts lacks qualifications for her rumored role, having no experience investigating allegations of unethical behavior.The Trump administration denied earlier Friday that she was chosen to fill this role by anyone at the White House. “The claim we handpicked her is completely inaccurate,” said Hogan Gidley, the White House Deputy Press Secretary. An email sent by HUD Secretary Ben Carson on October 12 contained a statement to the effect that Tufts was leaving HUD to become acting director at the Interior Department. This information was confirmed on Thursday by the Interior Department, which stated that Tufts “was referred to the Department by the White House as a potential candidate in the inspector general’s office.” To add to the confusion, however, the Interior Department later reversed itself on this position, saying that Carson’s email contained “false information” and that “anonymous claims from ‘White House officials’ that the Department blindsided them are absolutely false.”A HUD source confirmed this, stating that Carson’s email was the result of miscommunication among his staff.Editor’s Note: FHFA has been contacted for further comment but has not yet responded at this time.
