I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: Getty Images The stock market crash in March caught a lot of investors by surprise. Unfortunately, UK shares have struggled ever since. It’s easy to see why investor sentiment has remained depressed. The coronavirus crisis continues to rumble on, and the Brexit drama continues. However, I think investors should look past these short-term headwinds. They should focus on buying high-quality stocks for the long term instead. Today, I’m going to take a look at two of these companies, which I think are worth buying for the new bull market. 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…Stock market crash stocksEuropean gaming giant GVC Holdings (LSE: GVC) is one of a handful of companies that appear to have registered an increase in sales during the coronavirus pandemic.The company’s latest trading updates noted an uptick in activity on its platforms, and this is expected to translate into an increase in profit for the full year.Analysts have pencilled in a 23% increase in earnings this year. They’re also forecasting further growth of 40% in 2021. Despite this impressive growth potential, shares in the group are trading at a PEG ratio of just 0.5. That implies the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. I’m also excited about GVC’s long-term prospects. Over the past decade, the company has gone from strength to strength, snapping up smaller peers across Europe. Thanks to this acquisition streak, net income has increased tenfold since 2014. I don’t see any reason why the company cannot continue to follow this course. As such, I think it’s one of the best UK shares to own after the stock market crash ahead of the economic recovery. US growthFlutter Entertainment (LSE: FLTR) is another highly successful UK gambling business. The company’s sales have grown at a compound annual rate of 25% since 2014. A series of acquisitions have helped complement organic growth. Now the company is focused on expanding into the United States. This could be a massive market for the business. The US online gambling market is still relatively underdeveloped compared to the UK market, but activity is snowballing. To capitalise on this growth, US casino giant Caesars recently offered £2.9bn to buy Flutter’s peer, William Hill.Caesars is after William Hill’s valuable online sports betting and casino technology and is willing to pay a pretty penny to gain access to this tech. The deal shows just how much money there is in the US market. Flutter is well-placed to capitalise on this growth. Unlike other UK shares in the sector, it already has a toehold in the US market. Therefore, I think it could be worth buying the stock as part of a diversified basket of UK shares after the recent stock market crash. It doesn’t look as if the group’s growth is going to slow anytime soon.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Stock market crash: 2 must-own UK shares I’d buy for the new bull market Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. The property sector keeps booming. The latest confirmation comes from the Halifax house price index, which showed 9.5% annual growth in May. It is at the highest level in almost seven years. To assess how this is playing out among publicly listed real estate companies, I looked at a FTSE 250 property-related penny stock, UK Commercial Property Real Estate Investment Trust (LSE: UKCM).  Flying highIt recently touched 52-week highs, which is one indication that the performance has been positively impacted by the property market boom. A bunch of short-term developments have come together to prop up property prices. These include the June deadline for the stamp-duty holiday, an increase in UK households’ savings during the lockdown and a traditionally busy summer period. 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…But Halifax expects the real estate boom to continue. A booming post-pandemic economy and a change in preferences towards more spacious properties are the reasons given for this. This can bode well for the penny stock in question. The next question is whether its individual profile also supports the trend in real estate. Fundamentals for the penny stockI last wrote about UK Commercial Property Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in late April. At that time, it looked positive from a strategic point of view, with customers in the e-commerce sector like Ocado and Amazon. Its rent collection was also at a healthy 84% for the first quarter of 2020. A few days later, it updated its financials, which were a mixed bag. Rent collection for 2020 was 83%, marginally below the number for the first quarter as lockdowns continued. Its performance was also diminished from the year before. Its earnings per share (EPS) fell based on alternative performance measures, which indicate how the company believes it has performed. Going by statutory measures, it made a loss. So it follows that there was a loss per share in 2020. It is also hard to ignore that its performance in terms of net income was sliding downwards even before the pandemic. Also, there is a possibility that some permanent shift towards working from home has reduced the potential for gains from commercial properties. Future looks positiveBut there are reasons to be positive too. With the lockdown now lifted, I am optimistic about UK Commercial Property REIT’s performance over the rest of 2021. Even if the commercial property market stays weak, it can be protected by the fact that 58% of its portfolio is in the industrial sector. The company has already started seeing signs of revival, according to its latest factsheet. In particular, it continues to be positive about retail warehousing. I think this can provide long-term returns for the business. My takeaway for the FTSE 250 stockThis is still a penny stock, still trading below pre-pandemic levels. I think that just going by the fact that its share price is still weak when many others have risen substantially, it could become attractive to investors over time. I would certainly consider it as a long-term purchase for my own portfolio.  Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Manika Premsinghlast_img read more

Annie Residence / Alter Studio

first_imgPhotographs:  Casey Dunn PhotographyText description provided by the architects. Two blocks east of South Congress Avenue, almost at the top of the gentle rise from Ladybird Lake, the Annie House takes its circumstance as the primary motivation for its form. The elevation combined with the presence of a small church yard directly across the street suggested the possibilities of downtown views in perpetuity from a second floor. As a consequence, the typical arrangement of public and private spaces is here inverted: the primary living spaces are arranged upstairs with a wall of glazing north towards views of downtown, while private bedrooms open to protected courtyards on the floor below. An exterior spiral stair further connects the house to a roof deck and the ever-present breeze.

W.P. McLean 6th Grade Center updates health curriculum

first_imgLinkedin Twitter ereardonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ereardon/ ereardonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ereardon/ ereardonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ereardon/ ereardon + posts JROTC cadets work concessions at TCU football games printW.P. McLean Sixth Grade Center will implement a new curriculum into health classes this school year as part of a new district-wide change.Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) was one of 40 districts selected to apply for funding for the new curriculum from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It was a combination of local money and funding from the CDC that made the new curriculum possible.Georgi Roberts, Director of Health and Physical Education for FWISD, said the district made the new health curriculum a priority.“It’s difficult for individual schools to do much because it’s not a priority,” Roberts said. “But Fort Worth stood up and matched the funding to allow us to do this.”Health class curriculum had not been updated in FWISD since 2005.The new curriculum is part of a comprehensive course, including units on mental health, drugs and alcohol, violence and injury prevention, nutrition and human sexuality. Teaching everything that encompasses heath, including both physical and mental health, is the goal.Based on Texas state and national health standards, the new curriculum is contemporary, accurate and skill based.“We’re hoping with this new curriculum we will be creating a generation of young adults who will not only have the personal skills, but will have the team approach,” Roberts said.She said students are taught to think and write answers to scenarios instead of answering a multiple choice question when learning to apply the skills.Health class is taught in 6th grade and then at a higher level in 9th grade. The change in curriculum was implemented in 9th grade last year.Designated health teachers will implement the new curriculum into the 6th grade course later this school year.Gilbert Cabrera, physical education and health teacher at McLean, said the new curriculum will be more effective in preparing students than the old curriculum. Cabrera said already in 9th grade he has heard that there has been a positive response to the change.“Kids are grasping the concepts it’s working really well for them. Kids are engaged and they like what they are doing,” Cabrera said.

Jailed TV station co-founder does not get presidential pardon, unlike partner

first_img News October 1, 2020 Find out more GeorgiaEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information to go further Reporters Without Borders has learned that Chalva Ramishvili, one of the co-founders of independent TV station 202, has not received a presidential pardon, unlike his partner, 202 managing editor David Kokhreidze. The two journalists were convicted on flimsy evidence in March 2006 of extorting money from a parliamentarian. Ramishvili was sentenced to four years in prison. Kokhreidze got three years.Ramishvili insisted again on his innocence in an open letter published on the front page of the daily Resonances on 7 June, although he acknowledged that inappropriate methods may have been used in an attempt to demonstrate that the parliamentarian concerned was corrupt.Ramishvili and Kokhreidze were arrested in August 2005 for allegedly trying to extort 100,000 dollars from ruling party deputy Koba Bekauri during an interview he gave them. They were preparing an investigative programme on corruption and were interested in Bekauri’s acquisition of a customs-clearance company in unclear circumstances.Bekauri himself secretly filmed the interview including the part when the two journalists – they say for the purposes of their programme on corruption – demanded 100,000 dollars from Bekauri in return for not revealing what they had discovered about his dealings. Bekauri then filed a complaint against them, using his film as evidence.Although the evidence was very thin, Ramishvili and Kokhreidze were convicted on 29 March 2006. Bekauri has since been stripped of his parliamentary immunity for activities incompatible with the office of legislator, and he has resigned as head of the National Movement Party parliamentary group.Georgia’s independent TV station, 202 is no longer on the air.

Reporters Without Borders calls on international community to save Italian journalist

It urged the European Union to halt this appalling blackmail and stressed that she must not be killed because of the policies of her government. Receive email alerts RSF_en Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Iraq Reporters Without Borders expressed outrage and horror at a video broadcast today showing kidnapped Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena tearfully calling for her country to withdraw its troops from Iraq. “Nobody has forgotten the execution of her compatriot and colleague Enzo Baldoni, who was also forced to make such an appeal by his kidnappers,” it said.”We urge the international community, led by the European Community, to mobilize all its resources to obtain Sgrena’s release. It is urgent to show genuine European and worldwide solidarity in the face of this appalling blackmail. Many governments and leading politicians have not yet spoken up to call for her release. They must do so at once.”We stress to the kidnappers that Sgrena is simply a journalist doing her job, which included describing the plight of ordinary Iraqis. She is not a spy and must not be killed because of the policies of her government,” the worldwide press freedom organization said.Sgrena, senior reporter in Iraq for the Italian daily paper Il Manifesto, appeared distraught in the video clip broadcast by Italian TV stations. She tearfully called for withdrawal of Italian troops from Iraq and asked her partner, Pierre Scolari, to help her. They were the first pictures of the journalist since she was kidnapped on 4 February.”Nobody else should come to Iraq. Please do something for me. Get the government to withdraw its troops. My life depends on it,” she said.The video was sent to Associated Press Television News (APTN) and then passed on Italian TV stations. Behind a haggard-looking Sgrena, dressed in green, was the name in red letters of an unknown group, “Mujahedeen Without Borders.”Two other groups have so far said they kidnapped Sgrena – the Islamic Jihad Organisation and the Jihad Organisation in Rafidain (Mesopotamia) – but their claims are not regarded as very credible.

Troy safety fair promotes awareness

first_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Awareness was the word of the day at the Troy University Campus Safety Fair Thursday.The safety fair was sponsored by the Troy University Police Department and was designed to make students more aware of the consequences of driving under the influence, domestic violence and other safety concerns.Ida Martin, Troy University Police safety officer, said the Campus Safety Fair highlighted two programs that will be of great benefit to the university students. “We are really encouraging our students to get involved in the Campus Crime Watch and Operation ID,” Martin said.“The mission of the Campus Crime Watch is to organize and equip students to be more aware of their surroundings and to recognize suspicious behavior. The more aware students are the less crime we’ll have on campus and in the areas where students live.”Martin said the students who become involved in the Campus Crime Watch will receive training that will enable them to be more alert in recognizing suspicious behavior.

By The Penny Hoarder The Campus Safety Fair also featured information booths manned by the Alabama Department of Public Safety, the Troy and Brundidge Police Departments, Pike County Sheriff’s Department, the Department of Corrections, the Emergency Management team, the Pike County game warden and the Troy University Transportation System.The Alabama Department of Public Safety demonstrated the benefits of using seat belts with its Rollover Simulator.“We have an adult dummy and a baby dummy and demonstrate what happens when a vehicle rolls,” said Sgt. Steven Jarrett, public information/education unit commander. “Usually the baby flies out first and then the adult. Often one of the bodies is thrown under the vehicle. The demonstration shows what happens in an accident and how the simple clicking of a seatbelt could prevent injuries and loss of life.”Trooper Kevin Cook said that it only takes a second to click a seatbelt and doing so could make a lifetime of difference.

Indiana University investigating alleged incident of anti-Semitism at fraternity

first_imgDenisTangneyJr/iStock(BLOOMINGTON, Ind.) — Indiana University says it’s investigating an incident of anti-Semitism and racism that allegedly occurred at a fraternity at its Bloomington campus on Friday night.The incident involved “physical assault, as well as allegations of anti-Semitic and racial slurs,” the school said in a statement released Sunday.Law enforcement was notified and the fraternity was placed on organizational cease and desist, which the school said means “members may not host or participate in organizational activities while the investigation is ongoing or until the case is resolved.” The university’s interfraternity council also suspended the group’s activities.The Indiana University Police Department is investigating the incident along with the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office and federal authorities.“Indiana University condemns bias or violence in any form and will hold individuals and organizations accountable,” the school said. “Diversity and inclusion are core values that we expect to be shared by all IU students.”Further information was not immediately released.ABC News has reached out to the Indiana University Police Department as well as the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office for comment.Last week, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order aimed at combating anti-Semitism on college campuses — although the president himself has come under fire several times for comments that have been criticized as anti-Semitic.The White House said the directive was in response to a recent rise in anti-Semitic incidents across the United States.“This is our message to universities: If you want to accept the tremendous amount of federal dollars that you get every year, you must reject anti-Semitism,” Trump said before signing the executive order in the Oval Office last Wednesday. “It’s very simple.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
