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! Wouldn’t it be great to make a million by investing in UK shares? It sounds like a fantasy, but ordinary people really can do it. The catch? They have to stick at it.To make a million for your retirement, it pays to be proactive. That means starting at the earliest possible age. As I wrote recently, a 25-year-old could hit that target by investing £500 a month in UK shares. Unfortunately, only a handful of people will have sufficient disposable income at that age. Most will have more immediate spending priorities.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…To make a million, whatever your age, you have to put it at the top of your to-do list. That means cutting back on frivolous spending, and using the savings to go shopping for UK shares. Not everyone will want to do that.I’m taking my time over thisThe sooner you begin investing, the better your chances of success. Nobody can expect to make a million from UK shares overnight. You need to invest across your working lifetime, so I’m talking 30 or 40 years.I’m not hanging around waiting for the pandemic to pass before buying shares. I reckon 2020 has actually been a great year to invest, because top UK shares have been available at bargain prices ever since the crash in March.That may sound counterintuitive, but if you’re investing for 30 or 40 years, this year’s troubles will one-day seem like a blip. Investors who took advantage and bought cut-price UK shares will continue to benefit long after the Covid-19 crisis slips from our memories.I would look to build a balanced portfolio of UK shares covering different sectors, or a combination of both income and growth. So I might buy FTSE 100 energy giants like BP and Royal Dutch Shell, banks like Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group, consumer goods giants such as Reckitt Benckiser Group and Unilever, utilities such as National Grid and SSE, and mining giants such as BHP Group and Rio Tinto. These are all big, established names.This is how I plan to make a millionTheir share prices may not shoot the lights out in the short term, but should deliver a winning combination of income and growth over the longer run. To make a million, reinvest all those juicy dividends for growth.Not everyone is ready to buy individual shares. A simpler way is to invest in a low-cost FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 tracker fund. Everybody should use their Stocks and Shares ISA allowance, for tax-free returns.When I first started investing, I used to check my portfolio several times a day. Now I do it several times a year. I don’t bother about short-term stock market ups and downs, and I never sell in a crash. Instead, I’ll take the opportunity to buy more cheap UK shares.To make a million, you have to take the rough with the smooth and, like I said, stick with it.

The FTSE 100 is up 10% in 6 months. Do I keep buying?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Cliff D’Arcy | Thursday, 17th June, 2021 | More on: ^FTSE 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Enter Your Email Address Before Halloween 2020, the FTSE 100 index was looking rather sickly. On Friday, 30 October 2020, the Footsie closed at 5,577.27 points, almost exactly 2,300 points below its 22 May 2018 closing high of 7877.45. Back then, investors were terrified of the economic impact of prolonged Covid-19 lockdowns, so UK shares were down in the dumps.But then came ‘Vaccine Monday’ (9 November 2020), when news of effective coronavirus vaccines had the world cheering. This hugely positive development produced a powerful relief rally that sent stock prices soaring worldwide.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…The FTSE 100’s big comebackAs I write on Thursday afternoon, the FTSE 100 hovers around 7,154.12 points. That’s just below the 52-week high of 7,217.54 it hit only yesterday. Thus, the blue-chip index has surged by over 1,575 points since Halloween. That’s a handsome return of almost three-tenths (28.3%) since 30 October. However, over the past six months, the FTSE 100 is ahead by only 600 points or so. That’s a gain of 9.3% since 17 December 2020 — a far more modest return than that seen since Halloween. So have I missed the boat to buy cheap UK shares?Not all UK stocks have soaredFor me, there is still value to be found in the FTSE 100 index, even now. Indeed, I keep bargain-hunting within this index for undervalued, unloved, and unwanted UK shares. That’s because this strongly rising tide hasn’t lifted all boats equally in the Footsie. Allow me to show you what I mean.Over the past six months, 83 out of the 101 shares in the FTSE 100 (82.2%) have risen in value. That shows the breadth of the market rally since just before Christmas. Across these 81 winners, half-year gains range from 70.8% to a tiny 0.1%. The average gain across these winners is roughly a seventh (14.3%).However, this still leaves us with 18 losers: UK shares that have failed to ride the relief rally since mid-December. Among these fallers, losses range from a mere 0.1% to a nasty 28.1%. The average loss across these 18 losers is 6.2%. So, not all shares have benefited from the FTSE 100’s latest comeback.I still see the Footsie as cheap todayJust before the London market’s value-driven surge since November, the FTSE 100 index was very, very cheap. Indeed, on some measures, UK shares were the cheapest they had been relative to the rest of the world for nearly 50 years. Hence, even after this big bounce-back, I still regard the Footsie as relatively cheap today.Of course, I could be completely wrong. Right now, the entire world is balanced on a knife-edge. If global vaccination programmes are effective, then serious illnesses and deaths from Covid-19 infections should drop dramatically. However, if more new variants emerge, or vaccination rates slow, then we may endure further infection waves and lockdowns. This would be disastrous for the global economy.That said, after the hardship of the past 15 months, I still believe — on balance — the world is poised for a strong economic rebound. That’s why I continue to look for cheap shares in the FTSE 100. As a veteran value investor, I’m particularly keen to buy into well-run companies with strong balance sheets, huge cash flows, and fat cash dividends. I see no shortage of these high-yielding shares in the Footsie today. That’s why I keep betting my family wealth on a continued recovery in UK share prices in 2021/22. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away.

Helping plants remove natural toxins could boost crop yields by 47…

Many of the invasive plants, for example, use their natural toxins to stake out their territory, just like an animal fighting over their territory. They put out roots with toxins, where other plants dare to go and grow, to keep them at bay. While science might develop some good things, such as ways to fight off these invasive plants, usually it causes another problem, of some massive sort, in the long term. I guess they will never learn to leave mother nature alone, as it pays the bills, and puts food on the table for themselves, and gives them a fancy job title to impress their kind. By Paul South, Postdoctoral Researcher at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This article first published on theconversation.com.Can you imagine the entire population of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, the United Kingdom and France going hungry?You don’t need to imagine. That is exactly what happens every day when an estimated 815 million people around the globe go hungry. In the short term, the problem is likely to get worse as the population grows, diets change and urban sprawl forces farmers to produce more food on less land. Recent reports suggest that by the time children born today reach their 30s, the planet must increase food production by at least 70 percent.As a biochemist, I started my career in biomedical research, but I shifted to agricultural research in 2013 because everybody needs to eat. Now I’m working with an international research project exploring how to boost food production. The goal of Realizing Increased Photosynthetic Efficiency (RIPE) is to increase the efficiency of photosynthesis – the process plants use to convert energy from the sun into the food we eat. In our most recent publication, we’ve shown that it is possible to dramatically boost crop yield by enabling the plant to get rid of its toxins more quickly.It’s critical that we begin developing new crops now because it can still take at least a decade for agricultural innovations to reach farmers.Photorespiration is an energy-demanding processWhen it comes to photosynthesis, plants use sunlight to power a chemical reaction that converts carbon dioxide and water to sugars, oxygen, and energy. But that isn’t the only chemical reaction that occurs in plants. A quirk in the evolution of the protein, called Rubisco, is that sometimes instead of converting carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, it uses oxygen instead. This produces waste products such as glycolate and ammonia, which can be toxic to plants and slow or stunt their growth.By BlueRingMedia/shutterstock.comTo remove these toxic chemicals, another process needs to kick into gear. Photorespiration is a part of natural plant metabolism that recycles these toxins. It is a necessary process in major crops including rice, wheat, and soybeans, as well as most fruit and vegetable crops.Recycling these toxic byproducts sucks up a huge portion of the plants’ energy – and can inhibit the plant’s growth by more than 30 percent. At higher temperatures, plants tend to increase the amount of oxygen they convert, so as growing season temperatures rise and heat waves strike, up to 50 percent of the energy generated from photosynthesis can be required for photorespiration to recycle toxins in major crops like wheat and soybeans. That slashes yields in the hotter and drier regions of the world, such as sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia, where food is most needed.To meet the growing demand for increased food production, I worked with an international team to explore whether speeding up photorespiration might boost crop yields.Making photorespiration fasterThe work, led by Professor Christine Raines and lead author Patricia Lopez-Calgano from the University of Essex and the United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), explored whether this modification could boost the production of tobacco plants.Researcher Patricia Lopez working with tobacco seedlings in the lab. Monica Kennedy, CC BY-NDWe managed to speed up the recycling of these toxins by designing plants that produce more of a protein, called the H-protein, that is already present in our crop plants and plays a role in photorespiration. Previous work in the lab using the small plant Arabidopsis, the “lab rat” of plant research, suggested that increasing the quantity of H-protein could speed up photorespiration and enable our plants to grow larger. Our team translated this idea from the lab to the field using a strain of tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum, which we grew outside at a research field station near the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I work as a USDA-ARS scientist.We discovered pretty quickly that we had to carefully control the quantity of the H-protein we engineered plants to produce. Too much H-protein in all parts of the plant was harmful, stunting growth and reducing the yield of tobacco leaves. Thus, we fine-tuned our approach and engineered plants that manufactured the H-protein only in the leaves. This increased photosynthesis and plant growth, probably because of faster recycling of the toxic chemicals.Harnessing biotechnology to improve cropsWe tested our hypothesis in tobacco because it is an excellent model for proof-of-concept research. It is easy to genetically engineer and only has a four-month life cycle, allowing us to conduct several trials in one field season. This allows us to test various genetic modifications in tobacco and then translate those discoveries to make improvements in targeted food crops.To fine-tune the expression of the H-protein, the team engineered the tobacco using DNA from a close relative, Solanum tuberosum, or potato. Using a known sequence of potato DNA, we were able to boost the H-protein specifically in the desired leaf tissue. That proved to be the key to increase yield without harming the plant.Initially, I was skeptical that boosting the production of a single protein out of thousands in the plant could have such a dramatic impact on crop yield. But, after two years of field trials, my colleagues and I have demonstrated that increasing H-protein levels leads to larger plants, boosting the crop yield by 27-47 percent.Author Paul South measures the rate of photosynthesis in the tobacco plants in a field site in Illinois. Claire Benjamin, CC BY-NDYou might wonder whether plants with extra H-protein are safe to eat? It is too early to answer that question. Once we have engineered “high H-protein food crops” these plants must be proved safe, which includes allergen and environmental impact before these transgenic plants will be approved by the FDA and USDA.These higher-yielding crops would be genetically modified organismsBecause part of the DNA comes from a foreign source (potato), these plants are considered genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. There’s no doubt that the idea of using GMOs as part of our food source is quite controversial.Many individuals have rejected the use of GMO technology, and some countries have prohibitions or restrictions of the use in their food supply. However, many studies have shown extensive evidence that GMOs are safe to eat, including this definitive report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. We believe it is important to have this technology to increase crop productivity so farmers and consumers will have many high-yielding options available to them.A shot of the field where South and his colleagues test their genetically modified tobacco plants. This image was taken by a drone in 2017. Beau Barber, CC BY-NDThere are different techniques to create new crops, including traditional crop breeding techniques, GMOs, and more recently CRISPR-based gene editing technology – which allow us to directly rewrite a plant’s DNA without adding foreign genes. But regardless of the technique, the goal is the same: produce plants that can thrive in farmers’ fields to create a more secure and sustainable food supply for everyone.Our next goal is to bump up levels of the H-protein in important food crops including legumes – soybean and cowpea – as well as the root crop cassava, which are major staple foods worldwide. If we can increase the production of these target plants by between 27 and 47 percent, similar to what was observed in this study, it will go a long way toward meeting the goal of feeding another 2 to 3 billion people by 2050. 2 COMMENTS Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Richard Rogers’ Pre-Fab Y-Cube Takes on UK Housing Crisis

The YMCA asked Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to create the Y-Cube, an affordable alternative for residents moving on from the non-profit’s hostels. And now, the YMCA wants more of these one-bedroom dwellings. “The beauty is that the units can be moved off site as quickly as they are installed,” says Andy Redfearn of the YMCA, “as we operate on short-term leases – we expect people to stay [in the Y-Cube] for between three to five years, giving them time to skill up and save for a deposit.” The red oblong box, which has already been nicknamed ‘the Monopoly hotel,’ takes eight weeks to build in the factory and one week to install on site. Rented out at £140 per week, the YMCA projects the project will pay for itself in 15 years and guarantee a 5% return to speculating “social investors.” Save this picture!Courtesy of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners The prototype, tested this February, achieved the highest rating (Level 6) of the code for sustainable homes in the UK, prompting the YMCA to order 36 more units for a large-scale test site in Mitcham. The units will be stacked three-high and arranged in a horse-shoe configuration around a small garden. A second 36-unit scheme received planning permission this week for the Leather Gardens estate in Newham. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners “The next step is to find a bigger scheme. If we can get the demand right – something like 150-plus units per year – the aim would have a factory in the borough itself, employing local people at the heart of the community,” says Ivan Harbour, the RSH+P partner in charge of the project.Save this picture!Courtesy of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners Read more at the Guardian and BD Online.

The Red Cross and Royal Voluntary Service will work together to help them regain their confidence, improve their mental and emotional wellbeing and ultimately support them to find solutions that re-establish their independence and allow them to re-connect with their community.”Roxanne Rylance said: Advertisement National Lottery player surprises charities with big funding cheque “I’ve been playing the National Lottery for more than 10 years and am part of a syndicate at work. When you buy a ticket you usually think about the money up for grabs, but I’ve never really thought too much about the fact that some of my ticket money goes to such deserving charities and community groups like this. It’s been a great experience to be involved in the campaign.”Positive Steps is one of seven projects across Wales sharing in £3,479,433 as part of the latest round of the Big Lottery Fund’s People and Places funding.Main image: Lottery player Roxanne Rylance meets Rhyl Men’s Shed manager Richard Angell  (centre) and Dave Worrall, service manager,  Red Cross,  Rhyl.  117 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 28 October 2016 | Newslast_img read more

The accreditation programme will aim to build greater confidence in public fundraising, and help drive consistently high standards across the charity sector.According to the IoF, the accreditation process and assessment would cover a wide range of topics related to ‘high quality fundraising’ and focus on people, policies and processes. It will aim to ensure that the policies in place are accurate and up to date, such as data protection, protecting vulnerable people and complaints handling, with assessment criteria covering and testing an organisation’s knowledge, systems, processes and policies as they relate to both fundraising law and good practice.The programme is designed to work alongside the responsibility of charities to conduct their own due diligence and the IoF expects it to be especially beneficial for smaller charities without great resources.In addition, the programme will include training observations to establish the quality of training processes and the checks that are in place to help ensure fundraising is carried out to a high standard.Following accreditation, members will have to agree to greater levels of monitoring and oversight to ensure standards are maintained.Peter Hills-Jones, director of compliance at the IoF, said:“High standards are at the core of what it means to be a good fundraiser. Charities and their agency partners, if they’re members of the IoF, are making a strong commitment to high quality and sustainable fundraising. This accreditation programme will be the next step to drive up fundraising standards even further, and help to maintain public confidence and support for the vital causes our members work on.”  51 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: best practice Institute of Fundraising About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
