While the FTSE 100 is the dominant UK stock market index, investors shouldn’t ignore the FTSE 250. This index, which contains the largest 250 stocks on the London Stock Exchange outside the FTSE 100, is home to some great companies.Here, I’m going to highlight two FTSE 250 stocks I think are worth buying right now. I believe these stocks have the potential to provide investors with both attractive long-term gains as well as a nice stream of dividends.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…A FTSE 250 technology stockThe first I want to highlight is Computacenter (LSE: CCC), a leading provider of computer services to businesses and government organisations.The reason I’m bullish on this particular stock is that ‘digital transformation’ is likely to be a dominant theme in the years ahead. If there’s been one takeaway from Covid-19 for businesses, it’s that they need to be fully digitalised in order to be competitive.As a result of Covid-19, many companies are now investing heavily in technology associated with cloud computing (so employees can work remotely), data analytics, and cybersecurity. And that can only benefit IT companies such as Computacenter.Computacenter posted an encouraging update in December. It said the positive trading it had experienced in the second and third quarters of the year had continued into the fourth quarter. As a result, it upgraded its profit outlook. Another trading statement is expected tomorrow. I expect this update to be good as well.CCC currently trades on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 20. The prospective dividend yield is around 2%. I see this valuation and yield as very attractive, given the long-term growth potential here. I’d buy the stock today.A play on the UK property marketAnother FTSE 250 stock I believe looks quite attractive right now is Howden Joinery (LSE: HWDN). It’s a leading supplier of fitted kitchens (to trade customers) that has over 730 depots across the UK.The reason I’m bullish here is that, over the last 12 months, Britons have saved a record amount of money in lockdown. In the second quarter of last year, for example, deposits in UK bank accounts surged by a massive £45bn. I can see a lot of this money going into home renovations in the years ahead. Howden Joinery should benefit. Meanwhile, in the long run, Britons’ obsession with real estate should keep demand for Howden’s products high.Recent trading updates from Howden Joinery have been very positive. In December, for example, the company advised that revenue for November was up 19%. Meanwhile, last week, it said recent trading has been stronger than anticipated with good profit and cash performances. These updates suggest demand for new kitchens from UK homeowners is already elevated. Howden Joinery shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 21.6. The prospective dividend yield is about 1.7%. At that valuation, I see the FTSE 250 stock as a buy. Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment.

These two new homes house two generations of the same family (A renovated Victorian House for the parents sharing a rear garden with a new Mews house for one of the daughters). The now grown-up family had recently moved out of their long-term family home and wanted these new homes to maintain some sense of continuity with their former lives. Two intertwined themes run through both homes, those of memory and tectonic expression. The memories of the family are used as a conscious architectural driver throughout both houses. Their social rituals are given tangible form within the design of the new houses. Typical domestic objects are distorted in material and scale to form a psychological landscape specific to the occupants. Save this picture!The daughters recollection of the stairs in the old house being ‘another room’, finds built form in an enlarged landscape stairway offering spaces for pause. Her fond memories of the kitchen as a social space and sitting by the open fire distort the two new ‘hearths’ (one for cooking, one for fire) into non-orthogonal shapes suggesting uses yet open to appropriation. Finally the insistence of the ‘fire being the centre of the home’ is realized by the location of an industrial scaled chimney rising through the scheme at the centre of the plan, organizing the spaces throughout. In the parent’s new home their anxiety about moving from the old house was addressed. Their weekly social ritual of the wider family gathering together for Sunday dinner was a focal point, in order to maintain the continuity of the family unit. In the new home the dining table is given priority of place and a ritual character. Cast in concrete in an altar-like form the dining table communicates its importance through its immovable materiality. Save this picture!As a further signifier of the special value of this space the expression of construction takes on a cultural role. In the wall behind the table custom-made glazed bricks are set. Named ‘Ruskin’ bricks (after Ruskin’s inspirational theories on construction in architecture); the bricklayer was given 100 identical bricks to lay in any combination he saw fit. Intended as both a marker of the process of construction and an explicit elevation of brickwork to the position of art, the result is a random graphic pattern that is not simply hung on the wall but part of the very construction that forms the building. A similar interest in constructional expression is seen in the Mews house. The Mews house’s facades take their key from the Flemish-bond brickwork walls of the Victorian House, seeking a kind of ‘constructional context’ with its older brother. The unique bonds are the result of ‘separating’ the Flemish bond into two layers, and conceptually situating the home in the space between these two layers. Save this picture!The extrovert front façade receives the ‘projecting brick’ layer, which oscillates in appearance depending on natural light conditions. To the rear, the façade becomes a mesh of brickwork where those projecting bricks on the front leave their resultant holes in the rear wall, allowing ventilation to the rooms behind to be taken directly through this brick skin. Throughout both homes, construction is expressed directly as the finished product imbuing these two new homes with a powerful, domestic character.Project gallerySee allShow less2009 BIMFusion.com International BIM Awards CompetitionArticlesSpeed Limits, an exhibitionArticles Share ArchDaily Architects: TAKA Year Completion year of this architecture project Houseslast_img read more

Tucked between Spring and Canal in New York City’s recently rezoned Hudson Square, Renwick Street is a rare blip on the vast urban grid: a small, single-block residential enclave, whose self-generated hush recalls the era of a much more intimate Manhattan. Save this picture!DiagramThat scale and setting—and the historical memory they evoke—were the contextual cues for ODA New York’s newest completed multifamily. At 15 Renwick Street, ODA bucks the contemporary trend towards ultramodern—frequently hermetic—crystal towers. Instead, myriad bespoke details and ample outdoor space add up to this resolutely classic, quasi-suburban sanctuary from the surrounding bustle. Save this picture!© Frank OudemanRenwick’s outdoor area, totaling 8,300 square feet, results from consummate expertise in zoning, which consistently allows ODA to flip the rulebook in its favor—to experience New York City’s labyrinthine zoning code not as an inhibitor, but as a launchpad for innovation. Save this picture!© Frank OudemanHere, that innovation was delivered by way of the standard dormer rule, governing the amount of square footage that can encroach into a building’s setback line. By reinterpreting the rule, ODA was able to dissect and redistribute Renwick’s upper massing, opening large geometric pockets for private terraces. Meanwhile, the use of glass windows and doors to demarcate terracing creates seamless indoor-outdoor connectivity, and ideal sun exposure. Save this picture!11th Floor PlanIn these ways—freeing up outdoor space, opening opportunities for residents to engage with others and with the elements—ODA once again instantiates a coherent, and well-documented, mission: As increasingly crowded city-dwellers sacrifice these vital interactions for the convenience of location, the firm aims to incorporate what we’ve lost back into New York’s upward sprawl—to restore, and improve, our quality of living. Save this picture!© Frank OudemanIndeed a concern for quality runs throughout 15 Renwick, even in its materials. On the exterior, an elegant grid of deep, charcoal-hued aluminum fins produce shadow lines to shield units from street view, amplifying privacy. And luxuriant details like wood-grained window inserts—for depth of color—and a series of ground-floor copper panels feel more like they belong to a private suburban home than any typical urban condominium.  Save this picture!© Frank OudemanInside, residents are removed even further from the urban fray. A nod to James Renwick himself—the English-American scientist and engineer for whom Renwick Street was named—interior common spaces channel the warmth and intimacy of an early British social club. Rich wood panels (mimicking Renwick’s exterior fins), lush leather appointments, and Emperador marble details all feel sumptuously transportive. Save this picture!© Frank OudemanTaken together with Renwick’s creatively wrought outdoor space, these elements combine to combat the cold modernism of so much contemporary construction—which tends to seal residents in nondescript boxes, up and away from each other. Towards that end, 15 Renwick is new kind of new build, rooted in ideals of the past—a fitting tribute to one of Manhattan’s last quiet corners. Save this picture!© Frank OudemanProject gallerySee allShow lessKPF Advances Growth of Boston Seaport with Towered Mixed-Use BuildingArchitecture NewsThis Sketchup Plugin Designs Structures Made From Plastic Bottles and 3D-Printed JointsArticlesProject locationAddress:15 Renwick St, New York, NY 10013, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

I was just going to bed. So, there you go. So, The Irish Times knew about it before I did,” Murray said.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sources at Lyric said they felt “snubbed” by RTE in the way station bosses handled the announcement.Lyric FM presenter Lorcan Murray with Fine Gael Senator Kieran O’Donnell.For Murray however, who left 2FM to join Lyric, and launch the station in Limerick 20 years ago, last night’s news came as something of a bombshell.Speaking this morning, he remarked how it was a particularly bitter pill to swallow, having felt that he and his colleagues have been “very loyal” employees.“It’s just so disappointing. I’m 31 years now with RTE and I would call myself a very loyal employee, and I feel very disappointed in the way I’ve been told,” he said.Murray recently approached the City’s mayor to seek support for keeping the studios on air in Limerick.“I had asked him to put forward a motion before the Council for all parties to endorse holding Lyric in Limerick.”Last May Lyric’s Limerick staff outwardly maintained a positive outlook, despite their inner concerns about the studio’s future, after RTE announced it would hold Lyric’s 20 year celebrations in Dublin.The decision not to hold the celebrations in Limerick was defended at the time on “cost grounds” by the Head of Lyric FM, Aodan O’Dubhghailll.Pictured at the launch were Hayley-Jo Murphy as Snow with Lorcan Murray, RTE Lyric fm.The star studded cast of this year’s eagerly awaited Robert C Kelly and University Concert Hall Panto, Snow White, were in Limerick today for the launch which took place in the beautiful No. 1 Pery Square.Photo: True MediaAfter the announcement last May, Murray maintained that having a national radio station based locally was “a great feather in the cap” for Limerick.Olga Buckley, a Lyric producer, said then that, many staff were on first name terms with loyal listeners.They shared their personal stories – births, deaths, and marriages and corresponded in hand-written notes and letters.Today, Murray, who steers the station’s flagship drivetime programme, Classic Drive, said he was gobsmacked by RTEs plan closing down Lyric in Limerick.“I didn’t think it would come to be honest, I thought it was scaremongering to be honest, you know – holding out the baby.

3 hospitals join forces for POWER Initiative

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest 3 hospitals join forces for POWER Initiative Facebook Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – December 16, 2020 WhatsApp Twittercenter_img TAGS  Facebook Previous articleAccused in shooting booked into Ector County jailNext articleChoose and use your OTC medicines safely [Infographic] Digital AIM Web Support Local NewsEducation Pinterest The POWER Initiative has announced its partnership with all three Midland/Odessa hospitals, beginning Jan. 1, 2021. Midland Memorial Hospital will join previous partners, Medical Center Hospital and Odessa Regional Medical Center, in the reading initiative partnership. POWER is an overarching plan to try to “connect all the touchpoint and through lines from birth to kindergarten or prek,” said Adrian Vega, executive director of the Education Partnership of the Permian Basin. The POWER Initiative falls under the Education Partnership of the Permian Basin. Vega said it gives “structure and focus to how we’re aligning all our resources. The whole goal is to improve kindergarten readiness. We’re literally starting at birth.” For each child born at these three hospitals in 2021, their families will be given a POWER bag, containing a CDC Milestone Moments Baby Booklet, a POWER Brochure, POWER Tip Sheet, Baby’s Busy Day Book, Scholastic Baby Book, POWER Magnet, Power Toy Keys, and articles on brain development and reading to your child, a news release said. POWER stands for Power of Words and Early Reading. MCH and ORMC POWER bags will include the “O is for Oil: ABCs of Odessa” Book. MMH Power Bags will include the “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site” Book. Between the deliveries at MCH and ORMC in 2020, nearly 4,000 POWER bags have been given out. With MMH now joining the initiative, there will be approximately 5,600 POWER bags delivered to the hospitals, the release said. Research has shown that there is a major word gap in words spoken and the types of messages conveyed between children born into poverty and children born into working-class or professional families, the release said. Recent data has shown that more than half of kindergartners in Midland/Odessa were not kindergarten-ready when they started school. POWER believes that kindergarten-readiness begins at birth, years before children start school. The purpose of this initiative is to encourage our community to read, speak, and interact with children, as frequently as possible, beginning at birth. Many community members and organizations have joined forces to make this project possible including: The Education Partnership of the Permian Basin, Odessa Regional Medical Center, Medical Center Health System, Children’s Miracle Network at MCHS, Midland Health, Midland Memorial Foundation, Basin PBS, Educate Midland, Midland County Public Library Foundation, Born to Read, Ector County Library, Midland ISD, Greenwood ISD, Chevron, Education Foundation, First 5 Permian Basin, Frost Bank, ECISD, Sewell Family of Companies, Junior League of Odessa, Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, XTO Energy, UT Permian Basin, United Way, and the West Texas Food Bank.last_img read more

Where Do Millennials Fit in the Housing Market?

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Where Do Millennials Fit in the Housing Market? Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Survey Highlights Differences Between Rural and Urban Homeowners Next: Fitch Gives Fannie Mae’s Risk Transfer Transaction “Outlook Stable” Rating Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The American Dream is still attainable for the millennial generation, despite pessimistic sentiments toward the housing market. Trulia’s Housing in 2017 report revealed that millennials’ aspiration of owning a home has fallen from 80 percent to 72 percent in the past year. Approximately 83 percent of millennials are planning to purchase a home, but not in the new year; 72 percent say they will not buy a home until the end of 2018.The idea of homeownership is within reach for millennials, but multiple obstacles are discouraging potential buyers from entering homeownership. Those obstacles include saving for a down payment, poor credit history, qualifying for a mortgage, rising home prices, inability to pay debt, not having stable employment, rising mortgage rates, and limited housing inventory.Ralph McLaughlin, Chief Economist for Trulia, told DS News that despite mortgage rates being lower than they were in 2014, home buying millennials will still feel the impact when applying for a mortgage. “While we don’t think that rising mortgage rates will affect homebuyers much, rising rates will have an impact on those on the cusp of being able to qualify for a mortgage—many of which are likely to be millennials. Still, rates remain lower than they were two years ago. The higher rates then didn’t seem to affect buyers much then, so we’re not worried about rising rates,” he said.A lack of inventory has been a crippling factor in homebuying among millennials. While 2016 was a year of low inventory and high competition, 2017 is expected to show an increase in housing inventory and moderate price appreciation.McLaughlin expects to see a rise in homeowners over the next few years, and he encourages real estate agents to engage in candid dialogue with millennials when it comes to the homebuying process. “We’ll likely see a slow and steady increase in the share of all homebuyers who are that age over the next five years. Real estate professionals should focus on having honest conversations with them about whether home buying is actually a good financial investment given their personal situation,” he said. “Millennials tend to move around a lot simply because they’re young, so in some situations, it may be better for them to rent. Having honest conversations with millennials and giving them sound advice, even if it isn’t in the immediate best interest of the real estate professional, is more likely to reap benefits in the long run for both the professional and young prospective homebuyer.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Where Do Millennials Fit in the Housing Market?  Print This Post Mirasha Brown is a graduate of Florida A&M University and is pursuing a masters degree at Syracuse University.
