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. Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Despite posting some decent figures in today’s half-year report, the ventilation products maker Volution (LSE: FAN) share price is weak this morning.I reckon news flow surrounding the coronavirus is driving this stock lower. In the outlook statement, the firm said measures governments are taking to control the evolving pandemic are creating “significant” uncertainty. The directors reckon there’ll likely be a “material impact” on the global economy. That implies a hit to trading, because there’s a large element of cyclicality to the Volution business.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…Trading well in H2 so farAlthough it’s hard to forecast, management believes there’s potential for adverse impacts on both supply and demand for the company. But there is “limited” sales exposure to some of the hardest-hit countries such as China, Italy and South Korea. Meanwhile, the firm is taking actions to “monitor and secure” its supply chain.And things are going well so far. In the second half of the trading year, performance has continued “on a similar basis” to the first half.  And several new product launches could boost sales over the next few months.Looking beyond the current macro-economic challenges, the lead directors think regulatory drivers are “increasingly supportive” of energy-efficient ventilation solutions. This could augur well for the business over the medium term.Prior to the crisis, Volution had been growing well. The five-year record is one of generally rising revenue, earnings, cash flow and shareholder dividends. And today’s numbers are impressive. In the first half of the trading year to 31 January, revenue at constant currency rates rose 5% compared to the equivalent period the prior year. In terms of the adjusted figures, operating cash flow shot up almost 44% and earnings per share moved 6.5% higher.Net debt lowerThere was also good news regarding net debt, which dropped by almost 14% to just over £60m on a like-for-like basis. I’m pleased to see progress with lowering debt because if trading conditions get tough, the firm will need its interest payments to be as low as possible.The directors slapped 6.9% on the interim dividend, which suggests there’s a measure of confidence in the outlook, despite the pandemic. Meanwhile, one of the things I admire about Volution is the way operations are growing geographically. In H1, 46% of sales came from the UK, 30% from Europe (excluding the UK and Sweden), 13% from Australasia, 9% from Sweden and 2% from the rest of the world.I’m not going to try to pin down the valuation on this one until there are clear signs that the share price has ended its plunge. But this is high up my watch list, and I’d be keen to examine it in more detail later with a view to picking up a few of the shares. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img See all posts by Kevin Godbold I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Social media’s power to share good news

first_img October 28, 2012 at 7:02 pm THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I am working so hard to show our church that this is not a media to be feared, but one to be embraced. We have so much good to share as both Episcopalians and as Christians. Why wouldn’t we embrace new technologies to spread the Word farther?

Why is the church so afraid of so doing? [Episcopal News Service – Albuquerque, New Mexico] The Diocese of the Rio Grande invited me here to do a workshop on social media at their just concluded 60th convention. I showed up prepared to do that and a sermon about the power of social media broke out.I started with a prayer for church communicators created by my friend the Rev. Jan Nunley.“God who wrote your words:on tablets of stone with fingers of fire.God who gave your word:the chief cornerstone with hands of flesh.Help us who write:with fingers of flesh through sparks of fireto break open hearts of stone.”We’re all communicators of the gospel but social media raises our presence—and influence—to extraordinary new levels.  We can reach more people throughout the world in less time than ever before in human history.  Social media has proven power that we would do well to use. Consider this: If Twitter can help bring down governments, it can help us build up the Kingdom of God.The Rev. Dan Webster during a social media workshop at the Diocese of Rio Grande Convention. Photo/Brian WinterMy gospel lesson whenever I talk about church communications is from Matthew 5:14-16, “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”For me our charge doesn’t get much clearer than that.  We must let people know when we welcome the stranger, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the homeless, visit the sick and dying.  We must tell people why we do these things and that it is what happens when the Kingdom of God comes very near them. Social media allows us to communicate all this and more in real time.Of course there are always folks who point out the shortcomings of social media and say, “I don’t want to know what someone had for breakfast,” or “I don’t care where someone is right now.” But in one of my workshops an attendee talked about one congregation where members were encouraged to post on their mobile devices how they were at the church.  That’s certainly one way of witnessing to the gospel.As God would have it, the workshops were on the feast day of St. Luke.  It also was the day Newsweek magazine announced it would end its print publication by year’s end.  Talk about a blessed “Godincidence.”  Newsweek’s announcement begged the question about print publications vs. electronic.  I think we have to do both.  We have church members who are not online but are longtime members who need to be kept informed.And just as Luke, Mark, Matthew,  and John used the tools then available to share the gospel, so must we, 20 centuries later .It has long been clear to me that communications is a ministry.  I’ve long believed there should be a budget line for communications in every parish and every diocese with professionally trained paid or volunteer staff folk recognized as ministers of communication.When it comes to social media, I’m not an expert by any means, but I’ve become a fan.  I’ve come to see how digital technology and social media tools Facebook and Twitter allow us to share the gospel and our liturgy to more than those who worship in church buildings.Each one of us can let our light shine. We now live in a time when we can shine that light farther than ever.  What’s stopping us?— The Rev. Dan Webster is canon for evangelism and ministry development in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland.

The clients were a husband-and-wife couple. He works as the director of an advertising agency, while she works in the food business. The couple purchased a plot of land that faces the cliff of a plateau and commissioned us to build a wooden three-storey residence for themselves and their child. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaRecommended ProductsStonesNeolithSintered Stone – Arctic White – Colorfeel CollectionStonesCosentinoSurfaces – Prexury®StonesFranken-SchotterFlooring and Wall Tiles – Dietfurt LimestonePorcelain StonewareApavisaSlabs – ConcreteIn order to make the most of the magnificent view overlooking the north side of the plot, we decided to activate the latent potential of the location by installing panoramic windows inside the house that would give the residents an unobstructed view of the scenic surroundings. The first floor was compactly outfitted with a small, Japanese style straw-matted bedroom, as well as a bathroom and dressing area with an attached terrace. Each of these spaces commanded a handsome view of the landscape outside. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe second storey was configured as a single, open room with an attached roof balcony. Bookshelves were also installed on the structural walls, while a table at the edge of the dining area provides a comfortable space for reading, creating a library-like atmosphere. In addition, we made an effort to emphasize the impression of diving downwards that results from the height difference between the dining room and the living area. The child’s room and a large outdoor living space are located on the third floor, which also offers the residents a full, untrammeled view of the beautiful landscape surrounding the house. Although the scenery visible from the terraces located on each floor is identical, the varied character of each space ensures that a different impression of this single landscape is created each time. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaIn addition to a car-sized parking space, the entrance to the house also includes a built-in bike garage for the owner’s beloved Ducati motorbike that offers ample room for maintenance and cleaning work to be carried out. Standing at the foot of the slope and looking up at this sleek, white mass that seems to float on top of the hill, the viewer is struck by this symbolic, monumental presence – an impression that contrasts sharply with the closed appearance presented by the front entrance. The spatial character of this house, which embodies elements that are both mundane and extraordinary, demonstrates the wealth of possibilities that can be realized in urban residential architecture.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessSports Facility / sam architectureArticlesEuropan 2011 Winning Proposal / Artur Borejszo, Leena Cho, Jason Hilgefort, Andreas …Articles Share Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa+ 21 Share CopyAbout this officeSatoshi Kurosaki/APOLLO Architects & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoHousesJapanPublished on December 22, 2011Cite: “Vista / Satoshi Kurosaki/APOLLO Architects & Associates” 22 Dec 2011.

Drive to Promote E-15 Stops in Indiana

first_imgHome News Feed Drive to Promote E-15 Stops in Indiana Drive to Promote E-15 Stops in Indiana SHARE But, with the government shutdown, will there be anyone on Capitol Hill to hear his message? Shaw says yes, “We think with the government shut down Congressmen and their staff will have the time to come out and hear our message and even take the car for a drive themselves.”  Shaw added that the oil lobby is using political science not real science to concoct false claims about e-15. Monte ShawMonte Shaw from the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association is driving a 2006 Jeep Commander with over 98,000 miles on it from Des Moines to Washington DC to demonstrate that any ordinary car can run just fine on e-15 fuel. He stopped in Indianapolis yesterday morning to say that what the oil companies are saying about e-15 is wrong, “Big oil has been misleading policymakers and consumers about e-15.” He told HAT the oil lobby has been saying gasoline containing 15% ethanol will ruin engines and “leave motorists stranded by the side of the road.” Shaw plans to drive the car to Capitol Hill where he will use it to educate lawmakers and the media about the truth about e-15. Facebook Twitter Roz LeakCurrently there are no e-15 stations in Indiana, but Roz Leak with the Indiana Corn Marketing Council is hopeful our first e-15 station may come on-line within a year.  Shaw says this is another example of why the RFS is needed: to give ethanol an equal opportunity in the marketplace.   Calling his trek Travel for Truth, Shaw says over 40 million miles have been logged by vehicles using e-15 fuel to date, and there have been no reports of any problems.

Shaw says oil companies have been telling lawmakers that e-15 will harm engines and that consumers will not buy the newly approved fuel blend. But he says the facts say otherwise, “We have about 40 stations nationwide that are selling E-15, and everywhere it is sold the response has been good.” He said consumers, when given a choice, will choose e-15 because it has a much lower cost than e-10, “The issue is market access, the oil companies control much of the access to the fuel market and are preventing E-15 from being offered as an alternative at most stations. “ Previous articleNFU President Says the Farm Bill is in Boehner’s HandsNext articleGrowers Report on First Experiences with the Enlist™ Weed Control System Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 2, 2013 SHARElast_img read more

VISIONARY: Hawkins thanks all who helped create park

first_img Janice Hawkins, First lady at Troy University, was the visionary behind the creation of a new International Arts Center and Cutlural Arts Park (named in her honor). The facilities were opened to the public on Friday, and hundreds of community leaders and students filled the amphitheater for the event. Above, Mrs. Hawkins speaks to the crowd while Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Artist Huo Bao Zhu and other dignataries listen.Troy University formally opened the Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and International Arts Center Friday afternoon with a dedication ceremony and concert at the park amphitheater.

Higgins said it is well known what is in the heart of Janice Hawkins.Higgins spoke of the many ways that First Lady Hawkins has contributed not just to the arts on campus, but to athletics and academics and the Greeks and the entire student body. The list of contributions could fill a book, but the day’s celebration was about the arts, about the impact the Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and International Arts Center will have for now and far into the future. But Hawkins readily gave credit to the many who contributed to the project.

Previous Article Next Article The director general of the Institute of Management has claimed HR managers are key to maintaining competitiveness in the new business age.Mary Chapman said HR departments are essential to the success in the competitive business climate generated by the advent of the Internet and IT boom.Chapman urged companies to sharpen their management and training techniques or face losing their competitive edge.She said HR people should develop strategic training programmes to promote the leadership skills essential in the “flat” organisations which are commonplace in the business world.She urged HR managers to seize the opportunity created by the new, dynamic knowledge economy to redefine their company’s identity through training and reinforcement of the corporate vision.She said, “The new economy has put a lot of pressure on companies – there are huge opportunities but companies that do not adapt are likely to miss out and become less profitable.“The role of the HR manager is crucial. Those companies that make management development part of their strategy are the ones that are being successful financially.”last_img read more

St Anne’s students catch intruder

first_imgA man accessed both St Anne’s College and Lady Margaret Hall on Saturday afternoon, in attempts to steal from both colleges, according to police reports.He stole cash and cards from rooms at LMH, but was accosted by suspicious students at St Anne’s before he was able to take anything.A combination of information from the St Anne’s students who apprehended the intruder and CCTV footage lead to the man’s arrest not long after the event.College authorities have now warned that criminal gangs may be specifically targeting University students.The individual in question arrived at St Anne’s early on Saturday afternoon, coming in through the front entrance. According to a student involved, who wished to remain anonymous, “the intruder attempted to enter student’s rooms, including mine, and when I confronted him, he was unable to provide a plausible explanation for being in college. We were able to inform the porters and police of the intruder before he was able to steal anything.”However, the man managed to make it to LMH later on in the afternoon, coming into the college by the main entrance just after 3 pm.It is thought that he had found a key fob a student had lost some time before, and a student who saw him holding it let him into the main building. He then was able to take cash and cards from unlocked rooms. Most of the LMH site is connected internally, so the intruder was able to walk through a large proportion of college trying doors.Emily Cuthbert, a first-year maths student at LMH, says she was heading back to her open room, when she saw three middle-aged people loitering by her door. She became suspicious and informed the porters of what she had seen. She added that “they didn’t steal anything from my room but because they were loitering outside my open door I feel they were probably considering it.”The man was later identified by trawling through hours of CCTV footage at LMH. The video shows a relatively young male, dressed smartly in a black overcoat and grey scarf, entering the college at 15:07 on Saturday afternoon – a time when many people are coming or going from the site.Thames Valley Police informed Cherwell that the suspect has been remanded to custody, and will face trial at Oxford Crown Court on Monday. They also praised the actions of the St Anne’s students who “apprehended the criminal, contacted the porter and obtained vital identifying information”, saying that “this spontaneous action by two alert students proved invaluable in bringing the burglar to justice.”Genevieve Clark, LMH JCR President, explained that the event there occurred because of a “simple mistake of someone trying to be helpful and fobbing someone in.” She also said that the “porters do all they can for security” and that “students should be reminded to always lock their doors and report any kind of theft immediately to the porters and the police so the criminals can be caught”.Owen Evans, St Anne’s JCR President, similarly urged students to be cautious when it comes to security.Additionally, LMH’s Female Welfare Officer, Karen Clarke, circulated an email to the JCR urging students not to “give anyone access into colleges or the buildings.” She added that “the police are aware of a number of groups in the city who specifically target the university’s colleges.”last_img read more
