10 UK shares I’d buy to start investing in November

first_img10 UK shares I’d buy to start investing in November Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The UK’s major stock market indexes — the blue-chip FTSE 100, the mid-cap FTSE 250, and the FTSE SmallCap — all remain significantly below their pre-pandemic highs. This means investors have a rare opportunity to purchase a diverse portfolio of strong businesses at heavily discounted prices. Here are 10 UK shares I’d buy to start investing today.Blue-chip bargainsWhen investing in UK shares, I’d always start by looking to the FTSE 100 for some blue-chip cornerstone stocks.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…Drinks giant Diageo owns a host of valuable spirits brands. In my view, its global operations, and labels like Johnnie Walker whisky and Smirnoff vodka, make it a world-class business. With its shares currently 29% below their previous high, I’d happily buy Diageo for the long term.The same goes for BAE Systems, whose shares are trading at a 36% discount to their high of earlier this year. From heavyweight military hardware to cybersecurity, BAE is a powerhouse in the defence sector.Pharmaceuticals and consumer healthcare group GlaxoSmithKline, and insurer and asset manager Legal & General are two more high-quality FTSE 100 businesses, in my view. Their shares are currently at discounts of 27% and 40% to their pre-pandemic levels. As such, both look very buyable to me as cornerstone stocks for the long term.Mid-cap UK sharesWith a strong foundation of blue-chip companies, I’d start diversifying by investing in some FTSE 250 stocks. I believe Biffa (28% discount), ITV (52%), National Express (68%) and Victrex (27%), are not only trading at attractive levels, but also have good long-term growth prospects.Biffa is the UK’s leading sustainable waste management business. There’s a nice structural growth story here of regulation, recycling and energy from waste.Integrated producer-broadcaster ITV has growth opportunities as it transforms into a digitally-led media and entertainment company.National Express is well-positioned to continue its impressive international expansion in the transport sector.World-leading producer of an organic thermoplastic polymer (polyether ether ketone), Victrex has growth opportunities across both its industrial and medical divisions.All four companies have been adversely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic to a greater or lesser degree. However, due to their discount prices and growth potential, I’d be happy to buy them for the long term.Small-cap UK sharesSome people avoid smaller companies when they start investing. Certainly, it can be a tricky pool to fish in. However, right now, I’m seeing the combination of a well-run business and distressed share price among a number of stocks in the UK small-cap space.Two that currently look very buyable to me for the long term are Carr’s Group and Fuller, Smith & Turner. The former’s shares are down 36% from their pre-pandemic 2020 high, and the latter’s 48%.Carr’s was founded in 1831 as a baking business. Today, it’s an international agriculture and engineering group. Its interests range from feed blocks for livestock to robotic and remote handling equipment for a range of industries.Fuller’s was founded in 1845, and as the owner of an extensive UK estate of premium pubs and hotels will probably be known to more readers than Carr’s. However, I don’t expect the coronavirus pandemic to derail either business any more than any other global crisis of the last 175+ years.

The culture of America through a sandwich

first_img Mama Mia LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply November 5, 2017 at 8:58 am The Anatomy of Fear That photo of the club sandwich is looking pretty good right now actually…….. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here So sandwiches are regional in taste, I take it? Well, you should really try what my daddy and myself used to eat for breakfast….hahaha…..a south, NC favorite…..a fried livermush loaf sandwich with mustard cooked on it, on white loaf bread. Sounds horrid, but was actually tasty. Maybe it was an acquired taste, probably. Daddy loved livermush loaf so much, that he got on a kick of experimenting in the kitchen, making his own livermush loaf instead of the store bought brand, and when my mama would come home from work, Daddy had dirtied every dish in the kitchen perfecting his recipe…LOL Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Previous articleIt’s volunteers that fuel Loaves and FishesNext articleDollops of love Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Mama Mia Mama Mia Part Three: A snack for the elitesBy Paul Freedman, Yale University, and originally published in theconversation.comUnlike many American food trends of the 1890s, such as the Waldorf salad and chafing dishes, the club sandwich has endured, immune to obsolescence.The sandwich originated in the country’s stuffy gentlemen’s clubs, which are known – to this day – for a conservatism that includes loyalty to outdated cuisine. (The Wilmington Club in Delaware continues to serve terrapin, while the Philadelphia Club’s specialties include veal and ham pie.) So the club sandwich’s spread to the rest of the population, along with its lasting popularity, is a testament to its inventiveness and appeal.A two-layer affair, the club sandwich calls for three pieces of toasted bread spread with mayonnaise and filled with chicken or turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato. Usually the sandwich is cut into two triangles and held together with a toothpick stuck in each half.Some believe it should be eaten with a fork and knife, and its blend of elegance and blandness make the club sandwich a permanent feature of country and city club cuisine.As far back as 1889, there are references to a Union Club sandwich of turkey or ham on toast. The Saratoga Club-House offered a club sandwich on its menu beginning in 1894.Interestingly, until the 1920s, sandwiches were identified with ladies’ lunch places that served “dainty” food. The first club sandwich recipe comes from an 1899 book of “salads, sandwiches and chafing-dish dainties,” and its most famous proponent was Wallis Simpson, the American woman whom Edward VIII abdicated the throne of Great Britain to marry.Nonetheless, an 1889 article from the New York Sun entitled “An Appetizing Sandwich: A Dainty Treat That Has Made a New York Chef Popular” describes the Union Club sandwich as appropriate for a post-theater supper, or something light to be eaten before a nightcap. This was one type of sandwich that men could indulge in, the article seemed to be saying – as long as it wasn’t eaten for lunch.New York City’s Union Club served an early version of the club sandwich that was a hit. Gryffindor, CC BY-SAProfessor Paul Freedman specializes in medieval social history, the history of Catalonia, comparative studies of the peasantry, trade in luxury products, and the history of cuisine. His latest book is Ten Restaurants That Changed America (Liveright/Norton, 2016). 3 COMMENTS Every sandwich tells a story… don’t it?Everyone has a favorite sandwich, often prepared to an exacting degree of specification: Turkey or ham? Grilled or toasted? Mayo or mustard? White or whole wheat?We reached out to five food historians and asked them to tell the story of a sandwich of their choosing. The responses included staples like peanut butter and jelly, as well as regional fare like New England’s chow mein sandwich.Together, they show how the sandwiches we eat (or used to eat) do more than fill us up during our lunch breaks. In their stories are themes of immigration and globalization, of class and gender, and of resourcefulness and creativity.It’s a five-part series entitled “Every sandwich tells a story, don’t it?” November 5, 2017 at 8:59 am Reply Please enter your comment!

Early Corn Emergence Looking Good

first_imgHome News Feed Early Corn Emergence Looking Good Early Corn Emergence Looking GoodRyan PielCorn planting in Indiana continue to move rapidly along, and early corn emergence is reported to be good. In Northwest Indiana, close to 90% of the crop has been planted  and early emergence is going well, that according to Ryan Piel, DuPont Pioneer agronomist, “Of the crops that I have seen out of ground, they look very good.”  He said, in some areas, the subsoil is compacted because the ground was very wet when the crop was planted. This has been a condition reported in other parts of the state. Piel, like other agronomists, says, if the rains continue to provide good moisture, this condition will not be an issue, however, if dry conditions set in, root development will suffer. He told HAT West Central  Indiana has about 40% of the crop planted because rains have been heavier and more frequent in this area. Facebook Twitter Early Corn Emergence Looking Good By Gary Truitt – May 22, 2013 SHAREcenter_img Piel says heavy weed and insect pressure may pose a threat to the young crop, “Watch out in particular for black cutworms.  The storms we have had brought the moths to the area, and trap counts have been high on the west side of the state.” He also said early weed pressure has been an issue and could pose problems for early planted crops. He urges growers to monitor early crop growth when replant may not be an option.  More Indiana crop condition reports are on the DuPont Pioneer Agronomy page on this web site and in the agronomy section of the HAT app for Smartphones and tablets.

On 14 January, Tsuneoka was denied entry on landing at an airport in Oman, from where he had planned to travel to Yemen.“It is unacceptable for the Japanese government to assume the right to restrict the movements of its journalists,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia desk. “Without the courage of journalists such as Kosuke Tsuneoka, the Japanese public would have to rely on the inevitably biased information provided by belligerents or other parties to the conflicts in war zones.”The Japanese foreign ministry previously suspended freelance photographer Yuichi Sugimoto’s passport in 2015 when he tried to travel to Syria in the wake of freelance journalist Kenji Goto’s murder by Islamic State. Jumpei Yasuda, another Japanese journalist, was released last October after been held hostage in Syria for three years.A specialist in covering wars in the Middle East, Tsuneoka was held hostage in Afghanistan for five months in 2010.Japan is ranked 67th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

The Life of a Pasadena Police Dog

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena Police Officer Lynda Mercado and K-9 dogKyra – Pasadena Police K-9 DogThe Pasadena Police Department has a new member of its K-9 Unit.Kyra, Pasadena’s first female police dog, was born three years ago in the Netherlands. She is skilled in both suspect apprehension and finding explosive devices. She is a Dutch Shepherd and takes commands from the first female K-9 police officer in Pasadena, Lynda Mercado.Each week Kyra is driven by Mercado for K-9 training. The cities of Alhambra, South Pasadena, Whittier, Vernon and Monterey Park rotate their training classes for police dog work. Her primary commands are spoken to her in Dutch but she also takes some commands in English and Spanish.At a slim 55 lbs., Kyra has been trained to negotiate a variety of obstacles that are presented to Officers that work in the field. Currently, she is being trained to detect explosives in open areas as well as confined spaces. This is particularly important since Pasadena is home to a large stadium like the Rose Bowl, and hosts the world famous Rose Parade on New Years Day. These venues host large audiences and therefore Kyra is taught to alert police quickly to save lives.“We have found that a German Shepherd is more methodical in its behavior when it searches for a suspect. They will go room to room slowly and carefully. However, a Belgium Malinois will run to the far end of a building and then begin his search. Kyra is like both of these breeds combined into one and is very adaptable under these extreme situations.”The equipment worn by police officers during weekly training exercises include full body bite suits, individual bite sleeves and face, head, and hand protectors. The protective suit will stop the powerful sharp teeth of a dog from ripping into the skin of a person training with a K-9.“As part of the training, we practice a variety of scenarios in a variety of terrain so the dogs get used to the differences “ Mercado added.The Pasadena Police Department has four police dogs. A German Shepherd, a Belgian Teurvern for patrol and narcotics detection, a Belgium Malinois for quick searches in a multi-floor building, and a Dutch Shepherd like Kyra who combines explosives detection and on-street patrol in her training.“When any of our dogs get injured on the job, whether it’s in Pasadena or 100 miles away, we immediately take them to the nearest vet for treatment.” These injuries can be gunshot wounds, deeply cut paws from running across broken glass, or heavily pulled muscles in the torso from chasing suspects.“Our German Shepherd was bred in the U.S. The other dogs come to Pasadena already trained from different countries in Europe,” Mercado added. Police dogs work for about 10 years before they retire. The Pasadena Police Foundation raised the capital to purchase Kyra and the canine SUV to transport her and other police dogs.“I enjoy working with this very smart, reliable dog. I bring her home with me at night and she is more than ready to go to work the next day.” Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Your email address will not be published.

Eagles Surge By Tritons, 86-76

first_imgEagles Surge By Tritons, 86-76The University of Southern Indiana men’s basketball team used a second half offensive surge to defeat University of Missouri-St. Louis, 86-76, on Homecoming Saturday afternoon at the Physical Activities Center. USI watched its record rise to 16-9 overall and 8-7 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, while UMSL went to 10-14, 4-11 GLVC.The Screaming Eagles grabbed an early 7-6 lead before the Tritons used a 9-1 run to post the largest margin of the opening half, 15-8. USI rallied to tie the score, 15-15, but was unable to push ahead as UMSL pulled into the lead and took a 33-32 advantage into halftime.USI got back on track offensively in the second half, beginning with a 5-0 run to take command, 37-33, and the lead for good. The Tritons closed the gap to one point, three more times before the Eagles re-extended the lead to a comfortable margin. USI would lead by as many as 12 points, 83-71, with 1:20 to play before settling for the 10-point, 86-76 victory.As a team, USI shot a blistering 69.6 percent from the field (16-23), 30 percent better than the first half, and 75 percent from beyond the arc (6-8), 35 percent better than the preceding 20 minutes.Leading the second half charge was junior forward T.J. Tisdell (Cape Girardeau, Missouri), who finished the game with a team-high 20 points. Tisdell, who scored 14 of the 20 points in the final half, was eight-of-10 from the field, six-of-six in the second half, and four-of-nine from the stripe.Junior guard Bobo Drummond (Peoria, Illinois) followed Tisdell in the scoring column with 17 points, hitting four bombs from long range, while freshman guard Alex Stein (Evansville, Indiana) dropped in 13 points. The final USI double-digit scorer was junior guard Jeril Taylor (Louisville, Kentucky), who had 11 points.The Eagles hit the road for their final road trip of the regular season next week when they travel to play the University of Illinois Springfield Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and McKendree University Saturday at 3 p.m.Following the final road swing of 2015-16, USI will host its regular season finale and Senior Day February 25 when Bellarmine University comes to visit the PAC for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
