Japanese MPs give Kan time to avert crisis

first_img Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the disaster facing his country is the worst since the second World War. For the time being he has the support of opposition parties.But the deeply unpopular politician is still living on borrowed time. Just hours before the disaster struck he was fending off calls for his resignation. He has been accused of illegally accepting campaign money and political infighting has prevented him from passing meaningful legislation to tackle Japan’s ageing population. His chance of survival seems to hang on the success of the rescue and clean-up missions. Top priority is to avert a nuclear disaster but the wider recovery will take many years and, either way, will come to define his term asJapan’s leader.NAOTO KAN KCS-content Tags: NULL Sunday 13 March 2011 10:59 pm Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp Japanese MPs give Kan time to avert crisis whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

I think these are some of the best FTSE shares for the 2021 stock market rally

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! Compared to some other international stock markets, the UK’s endured a poor 2020. For example, in the US stocks have been roaring upwards.However, the success of Britain’s vaccine rollout programme makes the UK look like a good place to invest right now. The pound sterling has been rising higher when measured against other currencies such as the US dollar and the euro. And I think those currency moves reflect optimism about the UK’s potential for a sharp economic recovery this year.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…I’d aim to buy the best FTSE sharesMeanwhile, many of Britain’s businesses occupy cyclical sectors that look well-placed to recover. But I wouldn’t invest just in those. The London market has many top-notch businesses doing well, both at home and abroad. I’d seek to build a diversified portfolio featuring cyclical recovery plays alongside high-flying businesses that perhaps attract higher valuations.I’d aim to diversify by investment style, sector and market capitalisation. But I reckon there’s a good chance the UK’s businesses will have a good year as 2021 unfolds. And I’m keen to back that conviction by investing in some of the best FTSE shares on offer.For example, housebuilder Persimmon could trade well through 2021. City analysts expect a robust single-digit percentage increase in earnings and the firm has been throwing out chunky shareholder dividends. The fundamentals of the sector look appealing to me. However, house prices look high. And any correction downwards could derail an investment in Persimmon.I’m keen on the ongoing recovery and growth potential at Premier Foods. The company owns many well-loved British food brands, such as Mr Kipling, Ambrosia, Batchelors, Homepride, Mc Dougall’s, OXO, Paxo and others. And, in January, the firm reported “another exceptional quarter of trading” as it continues to refresh its brands and turn the business around.But the pandemic has arguably created an unsustainable level of demand for home food. As we emerge from lockdowns, sales could decline for Premier Foods and my investment may suffer.Building back from the pandemicMeanwhile, SThree is a London-listed international staffing company. As the world rebuilds after the pandemic, I can imagine companies adding to their staff numbers and calling on the services of SThree. And City analysts have pencilled in some decent advances in earnings ahead.But the big risk for any investment is that economic recovery is delayed further by the pandemic. In such a scenario, those earning advances may not materialise and the share price could fall.I reckon Luceco has the potential to keep growing its earnings in the years ahead. The company makes and distributes wiring accessories, LED lighting, and portable power products. However, demand has been elevated while consumers spent more time and money at home during the lockdowns. As lockdowns ease, some of that demand could fall, but the wider ramp-up of general economic activity may offset that.I think the risks are balanced and I’d aim to overcome any short-term investment setback by holding my shares for the long term.

The client, who works as a manager of a publishing company, wanted a life surrounded by his favorite books and other objects. He purchased a corner plot in a dense, mature residential area located in an uptown Tokyo neighborhood. As we had to maximize what we could accomplish with this project using the limited budget available, we decided to incorporate the wooden structural frame into the design, and treat the floor, ceiling and walls of the house as a complete, integrated entity – in short, a house where all the furniture and fixtures would already be built into it.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraRecommended ProductsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesStorage space and shelving that made use of the structural wall covered the entire north face of the house, boldly spanning the first through third floors. The idea was to make the books on the shelves a part of the interior scheme of the home. The lauan (tropical plywood typically used in cosmetics) that was used for the walls and furniture has a delicate appearance, while the natural color spotting gives one the impression of an unfinished wood surface.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraNatural light streams into the house through the randomly placed windows and skylight, creating an exquisite contrast to the slightly dim interior. The right amount of shadow is a necessary complement to the beauty of light, after all.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraWhile the first floor houses individual rooms, the second storey features a spacious stairwell, while the third floor consists of a single, large space. The floor, walls and ceiling all feature similar wood finishes, resulting in a continuous space that seems to envelop the inhabitants in a cozy, cave-like environment.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe red facade, which draws its inspiration from the red entrance gate of nearby Tokyo University, blends effortlessly into its green, leafy surroundings. Despite the fact that this was a newly constructed home, ROUGE manages to create the impression that it has already been a part of this neighborhood for some time – something that was achieved thanks to a rational balance emerging out the project’s budget constraints, legal restrictions, and the humility of the client.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessHanok Garden / Y Design OfficeArticlesUpdate: Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and CultureArticles Share ArchDaily Rouge / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSave this projectSaveRouge / APOLLO Architects & Associates Area:  55 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Koichi Torimura+ 27 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/220321/rouge-apollo-architects-associates Clipboard “COPY” Architects: APOLLO Architects & Associates Area Area of this architecture project Rouge / APOLLO Architects & Associates ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/220321/rouge-apollo-architects-associates Clipboard Photographs CopyHouses•Tokyo, Japan Japan Year:  “COPY” Projectslast_img read more

Beijing Considers Axing Extra Tariffs on U.S. Ag Products to Boost…

first_img By NAFB News Service – Nov 3, 2019 The head of a government-sponsored trade association in China says Beijing could remove extra tariffs on U.S. farm goods to smooth the way for importers to potentially buy up to $50 billion in products.A Reuters article says Beijing would make that move instead of directing importers to purchase specific amounts of goods. President Donald Trump said earlier in October that China would be buying anywhere between $40 and $50 billion worth of agricultural goods as part of a “Phase One” deal to pave the way for an end to the trade war that broke out in 2018. However, that number has become problematic as China wants to purchase U.S. ag products based on market conditions, rather than commit to a specific number.The President of the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Exports of Foodstuffs says, “What the government can do is remove the extra tariffs, which both sides need to do. Then, let the companies make purchases based on their own will and market rules.”The chamber president says that would create conditions for a “convenient” and “good” trade environment, rather than creating obligations for firms to buy a certain amount of product during a certain time. While China can step up purchases based on market conditions, $40 to $50 billion is “very high.”Subscribe to our free daily newsletter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Beijing Considers Axing Extra Tariffs on U.S. Ag Products to Boost Imports Previous articleUSDA Invests $1.4 Billion in Rural Electric Infrastructure Improvements in 21 StatesNext articleNew Officers Elected at National FFA Convention in Indy NAFB News Service SHAREcenter_img Leave this field empty if you’re human: Beijing Considers Axing Extra Tariffs on U.S. Ag Products to Boost Imports SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Afifth of dotcom companies are allowing staff to take dogs into the office in a bidmake conditions better at work and to combat skills shortages, according toresearch by Andersen. The survey of 150 e-businesses shows that most are offering generous perksand benefits, such as duvet days and home-working. Fifteen per cent offer freelunches, although only 9 per cent allow casual dress. Skills shortages are highlighted as the biggest problem facing Internetbusinesses. The survey, dot.comp, shows that 54 per cent of companies rankedthe problem as one of their top three issues. Training and development andrewards were second and third. Many dotcom firms said they are focusing on developing their current teamrather than recruiting from outside. The survey also shows that over two-thirdsof participants have some form of share option plan in place. But with the fallin share prices over recent months, many of these options are now”underwater”. Nicki Denby, partner of human capital at Andersen, said, “Solutions tothe problem of underwater options have been the subject of lively debate in theUS, where accounting issues make re-pricing problematic. However, theaccounting and corporate governance issues in the UK are different to the US,and creative solutions are needed.” www.andersen.com/dotcomplast_img read more

Sprite observations in the Northern Territory of Australia

first_imgSprites, a form of brief luminous discharge in the upper atmosphere above a thunderstorm, were observed and imaged on two video cameras in Australia’s Northern Territory. These were the first such ground-based observations made outside the United States. Sprite discharges typically took place between the altitudes of 50 km and 80 km and spanned an average width of 44 km. Many of the sprite events were of long duration, with an average of 145 ms. These spatial and temporal features were similar to those observed from the ground and the air in the United States. During the longer events, some luminous discharge elements were observed to decay as other new elements formed. As the new elements were often laterally displaced from the old, the sprites sometimes appeared to dance across the sky. This phenomenon has been observed in Colorado and named “dancing sprites.” The lateral progression of sprite elements observed in the Northern Territory was overwhelmingly in one direction and covered distances of up to 90 km.last_img read more

Alumni Hall rector announces retirement after 41 years in email to Alumni community

first_imgFr. George Rozum, the rector of Alumni Hall, announced his retirement as rector Monday after over four decades at the helm of the dorm.“Because I no longer have the energy and stamina that I believe is required to do a really good job as a rector, arrangements have been made for me to leave Alumni, so that Alumni may have a rector who will do the many more things for the hall that I think should be done, and that I used to do,” Rozum said in the email.Rozum will be retiring so he can better look after his health, he said in the email.“I have loved being rector for you in Alumni, and I would never be rector in any other hall, especially because of great people like you,” he said. “But I now need regular hours of sleep, so that I can maintain my good health, and this job, as wonderful as it is, does not allow for very regular hours.”Rozum said in the email he plans to become a priest-in-residence and will minister to both Pangborn Hall as well as “the University as a whole” next year. After that, he will either move in with the Pangborn women into their new hall, or into Corby Hall after its construction.While he said leaving the Alumni Hall community will be difficult for him, Rozum assured the community that they will left in “good hands.”“All I can say to you is that I will greatly miss you — your faith, your energy, your friendships, but Residential Life will leave you in very, very good hands, because they care so much about every hall,” he said in the email.Tags: Alumni Hall, Fr.
