Shortages of building materials have been a common complaint in recent months as the pandemic hampers construction and creates supply chain disruption. Initially, FTSE 100 building supply firm CRH (LSE:CRH) appeared to be in big trouble. Its share price collapsed over 50% in the March stock market crash. But it’s since made a dramatic recovery, and now the CRH share price is close to what it was at the start of the year.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Construction stocks bounce backCRH has operations in the US, Europe and Australia, and each shows signs of recovery. As countries slip into a Covid-19-induced recession, governments are desperately looking for ways to claw their way out of the misery. One tried-and-true tradition of emerging from recession is through invigorating construction projects to improve infrastructure and get citizens working again. Governments around the world are already saying they want this to happen, and construction workers are being encouraged to keep working even in areas where stay-at-home advisories are in place. In the US, construction is considered a critical industry and therefore hasn’t been impacted as badly as other sectors.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…In the first half of 2020, CRH’s profit and revenue declined. Its revenue fell 3% and adjusted profit fell 28%. The adjusted profit drop was mainly because 2019 saw large profits from company divestments.CRH is no stranger to acquisitions and is looking to expand its presence in Australia. Covid-19 is creating a buyers’ market, so if the FTSE 100 giant makes acquisitions in the next few months, it could pick up some great bargains to complement its business and boost future profitability.Another reason the CRH share price has bounced back, is thanks to home improvements in America. Residential repair, maintenance and improvement in North America was on a roll at the height of the pandemic, as people at home opted for renovations. This boosted CRH’s building product sales by 2% compared with the first half of 2019.Future outlookAccording to its website, CRH appears to be on a recruiting spree with over 1,500 positions recently listed. This can only be a promising sign. The US is its biggest customer, so the election outcome is a consideration. However, no matter which candidate takes office, construction is likely to take priority and therefore CRH stands to benefit.Along with manufacturing building supplies, CRH is the number one asphalt producer and paver in North America. It invests in recycled materials to improve its emissions and boost its sustainability efforts. Some of its projects include building parking lots, stadiums, and highways. It’s a Fortune 500 construction stock, employing 79,000 people in 30 countries. It has a £22bn market capitalisation and its price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is 13. It offers a welcome dividend yield of 2.4% and earnings per share are £2.18.If we don’t bring the pandemic under control, then that could be detrimental to future profits, but that’s a risk across all markets today.I think the CRH share price is in an excellent position to keep growing, particularly as its P/E remains reasonable. And as it offers a dividend, I think this makes it a good addition to a long-term investment portfolio.

Welsh Rugby Legend Shane Williams Gives His Thoughts On Everest Challenge

first_imgThe Welsh winger reflects on his retirement, life after rugby, what he misses about the game and how he’s filling the void. Welsh Rugby Legend Shane Williams Gives His Thoughts On Everest ChallengeOne of the world’s most prolific international try-scorers, Shane Williams represented Wales almost 90 times and also clocked up four appearances for the British and Irish Lions in a distinguished career. He overcame critics of his size (he is only 5ft7) with an electric turn of pace and a defence-defying side step, that allowed him to score the decisive try against England in Wales’ 2005 Six Nations Grand Slam triumph, amongst many other stunning solo efforts.Retiring from the international game in 2011, following the Rugby World Cup and autumn internationals, Williams played his last game against Australia at the Principality Stadium. He speaks fondly of this final cap. “My final game, against Australia, was huge,” he remembers. “We lost the game, but I remember thinking that the crowd was still pushing us along and still cheering for us. I scored a try at the end and for 20 minutes after the game, considering we had just lost, the crowd kept clapping and cheering. I think half the people in the stadium forgot we lost!”Big Send-off: Williams scored in his last game for Wales in 2011 (Getty Images)Despite continuing his club rugby career in Japan, Williams has struggled to fill the void of performing at the highest level and the adrenaline buzz that this brings. “I miss the crack and the camaraderie,” he says. “I miss the togetherness that you need to work as a team and be successful. So the Six Nations is a difficult time for me, especially when you’re working doing punditry or commentary because you’d much rather be on the field, helping the lads out, than talking about it on the sideline. It’s not the easiest of times for an ex-international but when you keep challenging yourself and trying to better yourself as a person it helps to get over that loss.”Such is the drive of this phenomenal athlete that the competitive edge remains, if only in constantly striving to go further and do more, pushing his body to the limits of its capabilities in a similar way that professional rugby used to. Triathlons and ultra-triathlons (including a famous Ironman race) have followed and Williams now has his sights on a Guinness World Record.In April, Williams will join former England hooker Lee Mears, former Sevens star Ollie Phillips and Tamara Taylor, a legend of the Women’s game, in attempting to play the highest altitude games of rugby. Taking place over 24 days (13 April to 6 May 2019), the LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge will see the foursome, and other members of the rugby community, battle acclimatisation and heights of 6,500 metres to play the highest game of full contact rugby and the highest game of mixed rugby in history – all in support of Wooden Spoon. Wales denied a Grand Slam by France’s 32-30… Having gone through the shock of a testicular… Collapse After news of World Rugby’s plans for a… Playing rugby at 6,500m will, naturally, not be the same experience as running out at the notoriously caldron-like Principality Stadium, the home of Welsh rugby, famed for its hostile environment for visiting teams. But Williams is confident the excitement of the occasion will still provide a buzz. “I used to love running out to a full stadium,” he recalls, “but when I’m at 6,500m with a ball in hand I don’t think I’ll care who’s watching as I’ll be too busy struggling to breathe! And we will still get a buzz whether we’re playing rugby in front of ten people or ten million people, because that’s the kind of people we are. We’ll have fun doing it too, while raising a lot of money for Wooden Spoon, which is a fantastic charity.”Preparing for such an endeavour is a feat in itself but Williams down plays the experience of various trips undertaken at altitude as working in his favour. “I’ve played [at altitude] in South Africa and as much as you do preparation in the altitude tents, you spend the first 20 minutes of the game wondering how you’re going to make it to the end. And that won’t be anything like 6,500m. I also trekked to Machu Picchu [situated at just under 2,500m] 18 months ago. On the first day I was walking up a hill and I felt awful. A 60-year-old lady, who had had cancer, was walking behind me and I had step aside for her to go past me. We hadn’t even gone far. But if we get up Everest and we can all run around like blue-arsed flies, then it’s too easy, surely?! That’s why it’ll be a Guinness World Record and that’s why we’re doing it for Wooden Spoon, so bring it on!” Nasi Manu positive about his rugby future after cancer treatment Expand Wales Six Nations Squad 2021center_img Social Media Reacts To World League Reports Wales Six Nations Squad 2021 As if trying to justify this arguably insane feat, Williams says, “I miss the challenge [of international rugby] and the only way I’ve been able to get over that slightly is by doing other challenges, like triathlons and Ironmen. Challenging yourself to bigger and better things like this is the closest thing you get [to rugby] and it doesn’t come any bigger than Everest. I never thought I’d have the opportunity to do something like this; it will be up there as one of the most challenging things I’ve done physically, but raising a lot of money will gives us the extra drive to do it.” Nasi Manu positive about his rugby future after cancer treatment Expand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Visit everestrugby.org.uk to see how you can share your #MyEverest story or fundraise.

American Soybean Association’s Roots are in Indiana

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News American Soybean Association’s Roots are in Indiana American Soybean Association’s Roots are in Indiana By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 30, 2020 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter The American Soybean Association will celebrate their 100th anniversary next week and to do it, they’ll come back to where it all started- Camden, Indiana.Brothers Taylor, Finis, and Noah Fouts had grown an interest in soybeans after their father received soybean seed from USDA in the late 1800s. After many years of experimenting, they finally got it right.Elisha Modisett Kemp is Noah Fouts’ great-great-granddaughter told HAT the story.“By 1907, they had amassed about 200 bushel of soybean seed and created their own soybean company, Soyland Seed. That drew a lot of attention. They wanted to share what they had learned with other farmers. So, people would be coming by wanting to see their farm and talk about it. So, they actually had a first soybean day just for Indiana in 1910.”10 years later, the Fouts brothers decided this was bigger than Indiana and held the “First Corn Belt Soybean Field Day” at Soyland Farms in Camden.“And over 1,000 farmers came that day from 6 different states, and there was enough interest there they said, ‘We should do this again and let’s create an association that we can all help share these techniques and what we’re learning and the experiences to help us continue to be prosperous with this crop.’”That day they founded the National Soybean Growers’ Association, later renamed the American Soybean Association, and named Taylor Fouts the first president.Modisett Kemp is proud to still have Soyland Farms in the family. She says her great-great-grandfather and his two brothers would be happy with how things turned out.“I think they’d have been so excited to see how much this had grown from what they were trying to create and we’re just happy to be a part of that and continue that legacy.”We’ll have more from the event next week. USDA Deputy Secretary Steve Censky will be the keynote speaker.

Authorities arrest freelance journalist reporting for France Culture who occasionally works for Le Monde

first_img SyriaMiddle East – North Africa April 14, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities arrest freelance journalist reporting for France Culture who occasionally works for Le Monde News March 8, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Eleven journalists detained as threats to media increaseReporters Without Borders today called on the Syrian government to free nearly a dozen journalists and netizens it has imprisoned as it battles protests against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. “The terror and arbitrary rule must end,” the media freedom organisation said, “and all those held, as well as prisoners of conscience, must be released.”Among journalists and netizens arrested are Algerian freelance reporter Khaled Sid Mohand, who was making documentaries for the French broadcaster France Culture’s “Sur les docks” programme and who also works for the French daily Le Monde. He was picked up on 9 April and is thought be in a Damascus prison.Syrian journalist and writer Fayez Sara was arrested on 11 April in the capital after attending a meeting of the opposition Damascus Declaration National Council. He was earlier arrested in 2008 and imprisoned for two and a half years for signing the Declaration, which calls for lifting the state of emergency, allowing freedom of expression and assembly and the departure of the ruling Assad family. Threats and attacks on journalists have increased during the current unrest and foreign journalists, including those working for the Associated Press and Reuters news agencies, have been deported. Many Syrian journalists and bloggers have also been arrested. The regime is preventing foreign and local journalists from covering demonstrations and some have been physically attacked. Entry visas for foreign journalists are hard to get.Syrians and foreigners living in the country are afraid to speak up and the authorities have imposed a media blackout on the protests and on the brutality of police and troops against demonstrators.Those being held include Wassim Hassan, blogger (since today), Mohamed Zaid Mistou, Syrian-born Norwegian correspondent for the news website Al-Arabiya.net (since 7 April), Akram Abu Safi and Sobhie Naeem Al-Assal (since 24 March), Amer Matar, of Al-Hayat (1 April), journalist Zaher Omareen (27 March), journalist and writer Mohamed Dibo (19 March), blogger Ahmed Hadifa (24 March) and Kurdish blogger Kamal Hussein Sheikou (held since 16 March).

Are media, arts and culture really starting to censor themselves? (2)

first_img Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union DenmarkEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders continues its weekly look at the state of free expression and self-censorship in Denmark by publishing an interview with a leading figure from the world of the Danish media and arts.This week’s interview is with Carsten Jensen, a writer and journalist who is very critical of the liberal-conservative coalition government. He has just been awarded the Olof Palme Prize for his “courageous, committed and determined” defence of human rights.————————————Is freedom of expression in danger in Denmark?No. Obviously there is the Kurt Westergaard case. When someone breaks into your house and tries to kill you, that is undeniably a threat. But the question is knowing whether or not this is just a symbol, and therefore an exception. Or if everyone who did what he did would risk the same fate. Personally I think it is an isolated case.So why is this question constantly being discussed in Denmark?It is hard to understand. Perhaps our freedom of expression is well protected but we have lost the habit of using it, except for telling Muslims how bad they are. Honestly, I would be surprised to learn that there are artists or writers who want to criticise Islam in their art or their work but hold back for fear of reprisals.Have you personally never been the target of threats?No. And in my view, anyone saying the contrary is just trying to draw attention to themselves. I do not think that artists and writers who want to draw cartoons of the Prophet or put on a play that is extremely critical of Muslims refrain from doing so. Mistreating Muslims has become a national sport in Denmark. Look at what the politicians say. No one is threatening them. They do not have bodyguards. They do not censor themselves when they talk about Muslims. On the contrary, if they want to attract voters, they have to say the worst things possible. Things that are absolutely unthinkable outside Denmark.Why is the issue of free expression constantly linked to that of Islam in Denmark?It is a consequence of the political context. It is also a consequence of the situation of the Muslim minority, which is bigger than other religious minorities and often comes from pre-modern societies, resulting in a clash of cultures with problems of adaptation, unemployment … This makes Muslims an easy target of public anxiety and anger. Also, there is no denying that Islamist terror poses a global threat, which adds to the fear.But doesn’t this result in self-censorship on the part of artists and writers?When Jyllands Posten published the cartoons of the Prophet in 2005, the newspapers were never able to find cartoonists ready to say they restricted themselves in their work for fear of reprisals. So why does this debate go on? It is obviously very important to take a clear position on free expression, whether or not one approves of the constant criticism being made of a religion. But the debate continues in part because it is manipulated by the (far-right) Danish People’s Party, whose only platform is hatred of Muslims. It is not a party that is going up in the polls. It has around 12-13 percent. But it has an enormous influence on the political scene because the liberal-conservative government cannot rule without its support. And to protect its power it has to protect its raison d’être. Because it will cease to exist if people see that immigrants are integrating, which is the case. So it is in a desperate struggle for survival. It has to keep the debate alive. And that is what it does. It is like a monologue that no one dares to interrupt. Neither the government, for fear of losing power, nor the opposition, which hopes to attain power by imitating the People’s Party’s rhetoric.Elected representatives of this party recently made some very aggressive comments about Muslims. Was that an abuse of free expression that should be the subject of legislation?No, definitely not. Restricting free expression is not the solution. Silencing the opposition is never a solution in a democracy. You would just risk creating martyrs. No, the only solution is for the silent majority to stand up and react.(Photo : Isak Hoffmeyer) DenmarkEurope – Central Asia News RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News Organisation center_img Follow the news on Denmark News March 5, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Are media, arts and culture really starting to censor themselves?

Those who were exposed to complications during birth were at a 10 percent increased risk of developing ASD. That number rose to a 22 percent increased risk for children exposed to complications before labor began.Complications mentioned in the study include birth asphyxia, the deprivation of oxygen to the newborn during birth, and preeclampsia, a condition in pregnancy characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to other organ systems.“While there currently is no cure for ASD, early identification of children who may be at risk of developing the disorder is extremely important, as research shows that early intervention treatment services for children with ASD can greatly improve their development,” said Dr. Darios Getahun of the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research and Evaluation, lead author of the study.The study findings showed birth asphyxia and preeclampsia had the highest association with ASD. The other complications included premature separation of the placenta from the uterus, breech/transverse fetal presentation, fetal dystocia/abnormal size or position, and a prolapsed/exposed umbilical cord.ASD is classified into a group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impaired social interaction, communication deficits and a range of restricted and repetitive behavior patterns, according to the American Psychiatric Association.According to the latest estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 68 children have been identified with ASD, and the disorder is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups. ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys than girls.Kaiser Permanente said the study is part of the organization’s broader efforts to deliver transformational health research regarding autism spectrum disorder.In August 2016, a Kaiser Permanente study found that the risk of younger siblings developing an autism spectrum disorder is 14 times higher if an older sibling has ASD. In 2015, a Kaiser Permanente study found that children whose mothers developed gestational diabetes by the 26th week of pregnancy were at increased risk of developing autism later in life.The study was supported by Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit funds. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Month turns focus on physical therapy

first_imgLatest Stories The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Rhodes said that about 30 percent of adults over age 65 fall each year.“More than 20 to 30 percent of the falls in older adults lead to serious injuries, such a fractures and head injuries,” she said. “Balance-related falls account for more than half of the accidental deaths in the elderly.”For those reasons, Rhodes said it is important for senior adults to have balance screenings and to be aware of areas in their homes that could cause them to lose their balance and fall. Print Article Month turns focus on physical therapy Email the author “Physical therapists dedicate their time and talent to caring for the physical health of the citizens of Troy,” he said. “We, as citizens, should extend our appreciation to them for making Troy a healthier place to live, work and raise a family.”In honor of National Physical Therapy Month, Troy Regional Medical Center is offering free balance screenings to adults ages 65 and older who have not been diagnosed with any balance, vestibular or neurological disorders.Tracey Rhodes, administrative specialist, Encore Rehabilitation, Inc. TRMC, said the free screenings are available from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.“All senior adults ages 65 and older are eligible but need to call the physical therapy department at 334-670-5435 to schedule an appointment,” Rhodes said. “The results from the balance screen will be faxed to the individual’s doctor. Those who participate will also be given a Home Safety Checklist that will be helpful in identifying the areas of their homes that could cause falls and other mishaps that come with aging.” Troy Mayor Jimmy Lunsford signed a proclamation Tuesday declaring the month of October Physical Therapy Month in Troy.Lunsford said the practice of physical therapy involves a variety of aspects, from injury prevention to general health and fitness to rehabilitation following injury, disease or surgery.“The practice of physical therapy helps improve the quality of life and physical well being of people of all ages, including people with neurological problems, children, athletes and the elderly,” Lunsford said.Through physical therapy practice, education and research, physical therapists are able to promote health, reduce pain and enhance the quality of life; therefore, Lunsford said it is appropriate that the Troy community recognizes these individuals.
