I reckon one useful tip is to consider the kinds of companies investing legend Warren Buffett has been known to buy when prices are attractive.The US billionaire is known for his patience and entered 2020 with a $120bn+ cash pile. We don’t yet know if he’ll make any big buys during the current slump. But I reckon the FTSE 250 stock I’m going to look at today would tempt Mr Buffett if he ventured over this side of the pond.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…Simple and familiarWarren Buffett is known to like convenience food. His holding company Berkshire Hathaway owns US fast food chain Dairy Queen and is the largest shareholder in both Coca-Cola and Kraft Heinz. Mr Buffett is said to be a regular customer of all three companies.All of this makes me think that if he was in the UK, the Oracle of Omaha would be keen to take a look at Greggs (LSE: GRG). This UK high street chain satisfies all of Buffett’s requirements, in my view.Simple and essentialGreggs is really a pretty simple business. The company makes and sells a range of takeaway food and drink. Despite recent healthy innovations, the core product range is built around reliable favourites such as sausage rolls and pasties.You don’t have to look hard to find a Greggs, as its stores are always located in areas with strong footfall. This includes high streets plus workplace and travel locations. The store estate is constantly evolving to ensure that it stays focused and relevant.Although the coronavirus seems likely to hit sales over the coming months, beyond that I’m pretty certain Greggs will bounce back strongly.Strong managementThe company is also very well managed, in my view. Boss Roger Whiteside has played a leading role in developing the UK’s food-to-go sector and appears to have built an excellent team at Greggs.He’s gradually evolved Greggs’ food offering to cover more parts of the day and to broaden its appeal. The vegan sausage roll was a high-profile success. But did you know that Greggs is now the UK’s third-largest takeaway coffee retailer?Mr Whiteside’s success at Greggs marks him out as one of read more

Exposed and in a harsh, salty environment, materials that weather well over time and require minimal maintenance were key selection criteria.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe house is dug into the sloping site with dynamic cantilevered spaces overhanging the earth. The exterior of the house is clad in locally sourced timber boards for their beautiful weathering characteristics. The facade will slowly transform into a silvery grey driftwood colour, with subtle textural variations complimenting the surrounding native vegetation. Massive granite filled gabion walls retain the hillside and form the boundary of the carport hidden beneath one of the branching cantilevers.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathEntry to the residence is from beneath one such cantilever, through a Gallery space that leads to a staircase and up into the open plan kitchen and living area. The lower level is reserved as sleeping quarters for family and guests. Decks to the north and east branch off the Living area. Sliding timber screens wrap around the Northern deck providing privacy from neighbours and shading from the sun, with the added benefit of beautiful patterned light being cast internally. Internal linings are drawn outward, with sustainably grown Hoop Pine plywood ceiling panels evolving into external soffit linings. The owners also entertain on the eastern deck, enjoy the coastal views and remain protected from the harsh winds by a massive south facing glazed sliding door. The Master Bedroom sits adjacent to the Living area and enjoys elevated coastal views and the first glimpses of approaching visitors.

The Living areas are glazed and encased by a copper frame while the master bedroom is privatized by the timber cladding and strategic window placement.

The Regimented House / LIJO RENY architects

This project seemed like an Architect’s dream at first but upon closer understanding, of the site and the brief, revealed its complex nature. The seemingly large plot of 2.45 acres, populated with a variety of trees – small and large, was to be shared between the client and his brother, who had an existing house on site, without any compound wall in between. However, an informal pedestrian path, allowing the plot at the back an access to the main road, literally cut the site into two. Moreover the extending site towards the south, marked aside for the future commercial activity further reduced the buildable site to a linear strip.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe clients, like many, worried about security and privacy, wanted a strong sense of ownership and exclusivity even without building any walls separating neither the pedestrian path nor his brother’s house. Adding to the complexity was their deep desire for an inside-outside feel for ther house, with the inclusion of nature as much as possible.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe result was ‘The Regimented House’. The simple yet formal nature of this built form, with the extended frontyard and backyard demarcated by hard landscape grids established a notion of a boundary, subtle nonetheless potent. Moreover the grid layout was designed to accommodate landscaped courts of various types to ensure the essential blending in with nature as well as soften the otherwise bold presence of the built mass.Save this picture!© Suneesh SureshThe layout consisted of two simple, yet robust, blocks placed one above the other, separated by a large double height landscaped courtyard acting as a buffer between them. A landscaped entry court was added to blur the transition between the verdant landscape and the seemingly rigid building. The ground floor of the primary bay houses the formal and semiformal functions of the house and the secondary bay has the two bedrooms, one ach floor accessed by a staircase. An open dining and a bridge placed in the central court informally connect the two. The layout of the house is designed in such a manner that each room in the house enjoy perfect cross ventilation, making the best of seasonal shifts of winds, keeping the internal temperature at a possible low throughout the year.Save this picture!Site with Ground floor layoutThe large grid like openings puncturing the shell of the building, were strategically screened with perforated corten steel and G.I pipes to facilitate both privacy and ventilation. When lit up at night, the house looks like a lantern glowing in the woods. Internally, all rooms around the central court open into it by means of large sliding doors that ensure an open layout when desired. This possibility of engaging with a fairly large internal landscape, with trees that may grow to touch the ceiling, gives one the feeling of being outdoors with the elements, enjoying each season, each moment.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe material palette and decor of the house was refined towards simple minimalist possibilities in order to enable an unadulterated experience of the volumertic spaces that connect with the landscape. A combination of carefully curated framed black and white abstract naturescape photographs and mirrors extend this experience to a surreal dimension.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasOften, simple designs create warm, everlasting memories. The kids see the house as a large playground enabling them with exciting new experiences each day, and the owners have already slipped into these secure yet comfortable spaces, enjoying the simple pleasure of life.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasProject gallerySee allShow lessTown Hall Eysturkommuna / Henning LarsenSelected ProjectsDL House / DP+HS ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharecenter_img Architects: LIJO RENY architects Year Completion year of this architecture project The Regimented House / LIJO RENY architectsSave this projectSaveThe Regimented House / LIJO RENY architects CopyHouses•India ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Praveen Mohandas+ 50Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Photographs 2017 CopyAbout read more

The two companies now form “the largest dedicated legacy consultancy working in both legacy administration and marketing”, according to Ashley Rowthorn, who founded Legacy Voice in 2014.Ashley Rowthorn is now Director of both Legacy Link and Legacy VoiceHe is now Director of both companies, having taking over from Crispin Ellison who ran Legacy Link until his recent retirement.Rowthorn explains the partnership between the two companies. He said:“We’re finding that charities need specialist support to increase their legacy fundraising capacity and to manage the probate process once those gifts are received. These are really distinct skills, but we know the value in having a joined up process, so just as many of the big charities have integrated legacy administration and marketing teams, we thought it made sense to team up in the same way.”“We felt it was important to keep the two companies separate and allow them to focus on their individual areas of expertise, but to clearly link them together under a shared brand”.Legacy Link was founded in 1998 by Linda Norgrove and run by Crispin Ellison, until his retirement in May this year. Ellison was formerly Director at the Institute of Legacy Management (ILM) and then a Legacy Consultant and Director at Legacy Link. He was recently awarded a lifetime achievement award and honorary President of the ILM at their annual conference.

This is in contravention of their own assessment scheme, petitioners have alleged. Thus, the petitioners through their Advocate Abhay Anturkar have sought quashing and setting aside of the results for March-April 2020 as it is violative of NIOS’s own assessment scheme which was provided for in notification dated July 10, 2020. At first, the public examination scheduled to be held in March/April was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Subsequently, NIOS issued a notification on July 10 cancelling the said exams. Thereafter, the assessment scheme states that Tutor Marked Assessments and practical marks of the last three public examinations in subjects for which the petitioner students who were registered to appear but could not be held in March/April, will be used for calculating a student’s academic performance. The results were published on August 6 and according to the petitioner students and “to their utter shock”, the marks allotted were completely disproportionate to their performance in the TMA and practical examinations. Petitioner’s marks did not even reflect the true academic capability of the students, the petition states. Moreover, it is contended- “The conduct of the respondents in carrying out the assessment in contravention of its own assessment scheme is completely arbitrary and violative of the petitioner’s fundamental rights as guaranteed under Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India. The assessment carried out by the respondents in contravention of its own assessment scheme has grossly affected the petitioner’s right to equality before law and equal protection of law, guaranteed under Article 14 of the Constitution and right to life as guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution, as the same has severely prejudiced the petitioner’s future academic career.” Thus, the petitioners have sought directions to NIOS and others to re-assess and declare the results for the said public examinations on the basis of the assessment scheme provided in the notification issued by NIOS.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Storylast_img

Army National Guardsman vanishes in Ohio after Thanksgiving celebration

first_imgTexas Equusearch Ohio/Midwest Chapter(CINCINNATI) — Friends and family members joined together in Ohio this week to search for an Army National Guardsman who disappeared after attending a Thanksgiving party.Jordan Middlebrooks, 21, vanished on the morning of Nov. 23 after spending the previous evening with friends at a bar in Cincinnati, authorities said.Friends said Middlebrooks, an active National Guard member, left the celebration to crash at a friend’s apartment in Cincinnati’s College Hill neighborhood. Security camera footage showed him leaving the apartment building on foot late Friday morning, but there’s no indication of where he went.“We’re hoping for the best,” Naj Jabari, a friend, told ABC Cincinnati affiliate WCPO-TV. “My hope is that we find him safe and sound, no matter where he is. … I know everyone’s just wanting to give him a big ol’ hug.”Jabari and others formed a search party, consisting of more than 30 of Middlebrooks’ friends and family members, over the weekend. They’ve scoured the city, knocking on doors and pinning up missing-person posters, but there was still no trace of him by early Wednesday.Organizers with the Texas Equusearch’s Ohio chapter also are assisting. Middlebrooks left his vehicle and cellphone at a Taco Bell parking lot in Covington, Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati, ahead of the Thanksgiving celebration, according to the search party’s Facebook page.“His car was found by search volunteers on Sunday November 25th, empty with his phone in the car,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It is believed he was traveling from Hamilton Ave. on foot heading to his car in Covington but never made it to his car.”The group described Middlebrooks as a “beloved, active and well known person in the Northside alternative community” who loved photography.“He’s the sweetest soul. He’s the sweetest guy. He’s always around, bringing a smile to everyone around him,” Jabari said. “I just want to say ‘hi’ to Jordan again and see that smile of his.”Nicole Moyer, Middlebrooks’ aunt, said his parents are heading to the Ohio area this week to help with the search.“It’s been very difficult not knowing [where he is]. Both of his parents are very concerned,” Moyer said. “I really hope Jordan returns knows how much he is loved and we really want him just to come home safely.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
