Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The share prices of Greatland Gold (LSE: GGP) and Bushveld Minerals (LSE: BMN) are rallying. Despite the coronavirus-induced stock price plunge in March, shares in Greatland are up 630% from a year ago. Although Bushveld’s market value is still only half its June 2019 price, its shares have climbed 44% over the last three months.Greatland Gold’s blazing trailing 12-month performance leaves the FTSE AIM in its wake (click chart to enlarge): 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…Credit: London Stock ExchangeBushveld Minerals trails the index in this regard. However, excluding its 2018–19 outlier year, the vanadium miner is trading at prices it’s not seen since 2012.Every investor wants to buy stocks that perform above the average over time. Indeed, growth stocks such as these miners could be one way to do exactly that.But, can these two mining stocks be expected to maintain this performance in the future?Greatland GoldOne person who believes in Greatland Gold’s prospects is its CEO, Gervaise Heddle. Back in March, Heddle bought enough shares in the gold miner to bring his ownership stake to 1.5%.Some investors believe that putting all your eggs in one basket is a good way to make a fortune. Judging by the optimal timing of his share purchase, this could be true for Heddle, who has intimate knowledge of Greatland’s business.Not having that intimate knowledge, I’d personally be more hesitant to make a bulk purchase in Greatland, especially after the recent share price hike. Currently trading at around 12.5p, Greatland Gold has no price to earnings (P/E) ratio. This is because it hasn’t reported any previous earnings or any profits with which to calculate a ratio. The current share price is based purely on future optimism.However, the future could be gold. Greatland’s Havieron gold-copper discovery in Western Australia looks promising. And on Monday, the firm announced a series of agreements, which are now in place, relating to the exploration of the region with partner organisations. These will help with obtaining a mining lease to enable Greatland to begin mining operations. But it will still be a while before the firm begins revenue generation from any gold found.Bushveld Minerals Bushveld Minerals is another stock where the majority broker consensus is to buy. The firm produces Nitrovan vanadium, an additive for high-strength, low-alloy steel that can lower steel production costs.The Bushveld share price is currently reflective of the trade-off between low vanadium prices and good business management. The former reduced revenue while the latter produced the lower overheads that compensated for that drop.Although the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are concerning for the firm, its Vametco mine’s first-quarter vanadium production rose despite the lockdown. Indeed, many analysts are expecting an increase in production for 2020.As for Bushveld’s future, the recent three-year wage agreement with Vametco’s workers gives stability. Moreover, the firm hopes that the recent addition of the Vanchem plant will turn Bushveld Minerals into one of the most significant low-cost, and most vertically integrated, miners.  I’m not convinced a portfolio of growth stocks will yield a better return than a more balanced one. It also comes with greater risk, as does gold mining. Greatland Gold’s current price is too speculative for me as its future is too uncertain. But, I am tempted by Bushveld as a speculative purchase in an otherwise balanced portfolio.

A tribute to a historic quarter. For the first time since the Øgade quarter in Aarhus was established around year 1900, the area is now extended with an entirely new street. This quarter has always been among the city’s most attractive neighbourhoods due to its cosy streets, varying residential architecture and intimate courtyards.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Mikkel Frost“Basically, we have designed a street that pays tribute to the history by combining all the best from the area in the form of a cobbled streetscape with trees, sidewalks and inviting front yards in a new and contemporary way. Moreover, we have designed a street with its own identity”, explains founding partner at CEBRA Mikkel Frost. The new street, Æbeløgade, is designed as a community-focused “shared space”, where residents, children playing, passers-by and road users contribute to creating a vivid neighbourhood with room for common activities and play.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Mikkel FrostGreatest hits. The design emerges from what could be called architectural sampling of the surrounding urban context. CEBRA mixes, combines and reinterprets the Øgade area’s distinctive architectural elements such as perimeter block structures, brick facades, green courtyards and the cosy street. Furthermore, Æbeløgade’s architecture uses dramatic roof pitches, dormer windows and large window sections to create jumps and surprising variations throughout the block.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostTogether, they form a varied yet distinguishable expression that reduces the building scale and contributes to a welcoming atmosphere. In addition, the traditional brick building is reinterpreted into monochrome houses in three colours: a warm red, a light grey and a beautiful brown. A composition where all design elements, from the bricks, the joints, through to the mailbox and the downpipes follow the same colour scheme underlining a modern housing typology – a street with its own personality.Save this picture!© Mikkel FrostA green neighbour. The street forms a vibrant artery through the new neighbourhood that in combination with a crossing system of paths opens towards the city by creating visual and physical connections to the botanical garden. The garden’s green and blue elements continue throughout Æbeløen and “colour” both the buildings and the outdoor areas. A sustainable urban drainage system utilizes rainwater as a visible, recreational element that is combined with minimum upkeep areas, where vegetation can grow wild and new species appear naturally, thereby supporting a rich variety of flora and fauna.Save this picture!© Kasper HornbækProject gallerySee allShow lessBus or Bust?

According to the FHFA, the three objectives of this new Strategic Plan and Scorecard are to ensure that the GSEs foster competitive, liquid, efficient, and resilient (CLEAR) national ​housing finance markets; operate in a safe and sound manner appropriate for entities in conservatorship; and prepare for their eventual exits from the conservatorships.“Our nation’s mortgage finance system is in urgent need of reform,” said FHFA Director Mark Calabria. “The vision for reform articulated in the Strategic Plan and advanced in the Scorecard will serve borrowers and renters by preserving mortgage credit availability, protect taxpayers by ensuring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can withstand an economic downturn, and support a strong and resilient secondary mortgage market.”Part of the FHFA and the GSE’s plan to protect taxpayers has included the uniform mortgage-backed security (UMBS). Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac marked the completion of their Single Security Initiative with the launch of the UMBS on June 3.“UMBS is the result of close collaboration with FHFA, Freddie Mac, Common Securitization Solutions, and hundreds of housing finance stakeholders and we congratulate all involved on this achievement,” said Renee Schultz, SVP, Capital Markets, Fannie Mae in a statement. “We remain focused on ensuring that all market participants continue to make a smooth transition to UMBS and maintaining a highly liquid housing finance market.”Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are also preparing to transition out of conservatorship. Speaking at the Eighth Annual AEI-CRN Housing Conference, FHFA Director Mark Calabria stated that he “never thought [he] would see a conservatorship longer than six months.”“I have a responsibility to fix them and get them out,” he added.

CIPD must fight to get clear message across

first_img Previous Article Next Article CIPD must fight to get clear message acrossOn 31 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Anyone reading about last week’s CIPD conference in national newspapers will have come away with the impression that the agenda was all to do with Internet abuse and pop psychology about gender roles. They certainly wouldn’t get a clear message about the CIPD’s policies and priorities. So much for the body’s inaugural year as a chartered institute. But the problem goes deeper than the apathy of the national press towards the CIPD’s agenda. Incoming CIPD president Don Beattie kicked off this year’s conference by admitting that too many chief executives hold back from good HR practices. Belatedly, the institute appears to be ready to do something about it. Personnel Today has learned that the CIPD plans to expand resources to improve channels of communication with ministers.Beattie also used the conference to invite Chancellor Gordon Brown to take into account the institute’s research on HR and business performance when he sits down with the CBI and the TUC to discuss how to make the UK more competitive.But the CIPD will need to come up with more than vague invitations to the Treasury if it is to ever get its message across to the media, industry and the Government. It could do worse than looking to the American personnel body, the SHRM, which employs a team of professional political lobbyists and has even gone so far as to sue the US Government over bad legislation. The CIPD must wake up to the modern political climate of professional spin and lobbying. Employing a team of professionals to get the ear of the Government this would be a big step in the right direction. But the institute must go further. It must decide whether it needs to fundamentally change its remit from being an educational body to being a political force capable of representing the interests of human resource management at the highest level. It is time for the CIPD to climb off the fence and tell the world what it believes in. Comments are closed. last_img read more

Cape May County First to Offer Medicine Drop Boxes in all Municipalities

first_imgFrom left, Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland, Freeholder and Sea Isle City Mayor Leonard Desiderio, Freeholder Jeffrey Pierson, Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton and Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto, president of the Cape May County Chiefs of Police Association, demonstrate the medicine drop box. By Maddy VitaleMore than 70,000 people died in 2017 alone, as a result of drug overdoses from both illicit drugs and opioids.That figure rose from 16,849 in 1999, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.“We are in the midst of a crisis, an opioid crisis. In 2017, 70,000 Americans lost their lives to drug abuse,” explained Special Agent Nicholas Kolen of the Drug Enforcement Agency during a press conference Wednesday. “That is more people lost each year than can fit in the field where the Eagles play.”Kolen was one of several officials who spoke about the important of the medicine drop boxes during the event at the Cape May County Administration Building.Cape May became the first county in the state to have prescription drop boxes in each municipality.Law enforcement officials noted that the medicine drop boxes are vital tools to lessening the drug addiction epidemic sweeping the nation.On April 27, which marked the 17th state medicine take-back since its inception in 2010, 137 pounds of unwanted, expired, or unused medications were picked up from Cape May County’s local drop boxes alone, officials said.“We can lock people up. But there is the recovery side. The assistance side is crucial. We have to continue to fight this fight,” Kolen emphasized to the filled room.DEA Special Agent Nicholas Kolen discusses the staggering overdose statistics in the country.During the event, law enforcement officials and local dignitaries talked about the need to rid a home of unwanted medications so that someone, especially a child, does not gain access to the medicines.“I have personally seen how difficult it is for individuals who have addiction problems. This is a step that makes everyone responsible,” noted Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton of the medicine drop boxes.Thornton thanked the police departments in the county, Cape Assist, the drug prevention facility based in Wildwood, for being an “integral part” of the work toward ending drug addiction in the county, the DEA and fellow local officials for working toward creating a safer community.“This is a small county,” Thornton said, noting that the opioid crisis is a problem throughout the nation. “But we all have the same problems.”Freeholder and Director of Public Safety Leonard Desiderio, who is also Sea Isle City’s mayor, emphasized that the medicine drop boxes are just one way, but an important one, toward disposing of medications.He added that people may go to the drop box in Sea Isle, which is in the main lobby at City Hall, 24/7.“It is another tool we are using.
