See all posts by Peter Stephens Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address 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. A stock market rebound may occur in the short run after its recent crash. But the full impact of coronavirus on the world economy is a known unknown. The potential for a second wave of the virus later in the year may hold back investor sentiment to some extent.However, over the long run, a return to growth seems highly likely. The stock market has always recovered after its past crises to post new record highs. As such, buying high-quality stocks today while many trade on low valuations could be a sound means of generating impressive returns over the long run.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…An uncertain futureDue to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s impossible to quantify its impact on the world economy. It may, for example, have already peaked and will fail to return. In this scenario, a relatively rapid stock market rebound could take place as investor confidence improves.However, should there be a second wave, or a spread of the virus across many countries that have so far largely avoided its effects, the stock market could experience another highly challenging period.As a result, predicting the short-term prospects for the stock market is tough call at present. Investors should, therefore, adopt a long-term approach to their holdings. Second-guessing the stock market’s movements in the coming months may not prove to be a worthwhile exercise.Potential for a stock market reboundWhile the near-term prospects for the stock market are highly uncertain, over the long run its outlook appears to be far more positive. The global economy has experienced numerous recessions in its past, and has always returned to strong GDP growth. Likewise, the stock market has always recovered from its bear markets and downturns to post fresh record highs.Therefore, investors may wish to use the recent market crash to position their portfolios for a likely stock market rebound over the coming years. It may take some time for stock prices to recover to their pre-market crash highs. But history suggests they’re very likely to do so over the coming years. So the purchase of stocks while they offer wide margins of safety have been a successful strategy in previous market downturns.Focusing on qualityOf course, buying high-quality stocks is more important than ever in the current economic climate. For any company to benefit from a stock market rebound, it must first survive the likely global recession that’ll take place this year.Through purchasing stocks with strong balance sheets, defensive characteristics and sound growth strategies, you can limit your risks and increase your return prospects. This strategy may boost your chances of capitalising on a stock market rebound over the long run following one of the most severe market crashes in history.

Given the current economic climate, owners of country estates in the Netherlands are looking for new ways to sustain themselves. Forests cost money and agriculture is under pressure, yet it is necessary for owners to find new economic support for their country estates. The 800ha ‘Groote Scheere’ country estate in the north east of the Netherlands is one such example. Bureau B+B was commissioned by the former Fortis Vastgoed Landelijk (now known as ASR Vastgoed) to create a vision and structure quality plan for nine open-plan houses, plus one pilot house, varying from 375 m3 – 1000 m3, without a delineated/private garden on the country estate.

In this location, there has always been a coherence between the buildings and nature and it is known for its farm land, village atmosphere and diverse landscape characteristics. Unlike other housing estates across the world where development can tend to be ‘cookie-cutter’, the Grote Scheere is unique in that each house is individual and responds specifically to the site conditions. And although each house is unique, they have similar characteristics which form a coherent ‘family’, thereby strengthening the recognition of the site. The Grote Scheere distinguishes itself from other country estates by its simple and modest buildings and was designed through linking the locations of the dwellings, to transitions in the landscape. The first dwelling, the pilot named ‘The Entrance House’’ was completed in June 2009. The vision for “9+1” is derived from the character of the existing and decayed buildings, most of which are farmhouses. The diversity of this man-made landscape is also unique; forests, fields, ponds and streams. The design, to connect the style of construction to the landscape has only strengthened the concept; to discover and navigate the landscape by following the dwellings. Save this picture!© Lard BuurmanThe location for the dwellings have been chosen with the most unique sites in mind. The themes of the estate reed villa, field villa, flood villa, forest, creek, lane, pond, border and entrance villa form a strong coherence which reflects the diversity on the landscape. For example, the ‘Creek Villa’ which stands in between two forests with a creek running through the middle, splitting the house in two. The roof then becomes a terrace, and acts as a bridge across the creek. The proposed housing typology suggests different ways of inhabitation, such as a house where children take care of their parents. The characteristics of the old farms and barns have been translated into new residential typologies . The ‘Halle’ farmhouse was the starting point for the shape of the characteristic building where the ratio is dominated by the roof, with the proportions of three to one, which is the facade. This accentuates the difference in the landscape through their location and positioning. A hay barn rising up from the grain and grass is simultaneously a dwelling submerged in the landscape. This landscape functions as an enormous garden that due to its location and natural morphology has both private and public accessibility. Save this picture!© Lard BuurmanThe dwellings in the landscape form a continuous surface where the roof and ground become one and the same, acting as a band in the landscape, blurring the boundaries between public and private in the housing estate. The infrastructure reinforces this idea. Where the pedestrian and bicycle paths, and small roads are designed in such a way that they lead visitors and are therefore given relative access to certain areas. The ‘Entrance House’ which is the pilot, is situated at the end of the adjacent village, Anerveen. This location was chosen specifically; the dwelling, together with the ‘De Eindhoeve’, the farm opposite, forms the gateway to the estate. Save this picture!© Lard BuurmanThe black wooden house has strict contours and is reminiscent of a simple barn, connecting it to the farmhouse on the opposite side of the road. The roof opens up to the landscape to become a private outdoor space. The wooden terrace lies just above the landscape due to the minute height difference, making a demarcation of the private space superfluous. The house is not surrounded by the landscape but is embedded in it. The façade is made up of a series of shutters play an essential role in the appearance of the dwelling. Where the large vertical shutters on the side allow light to enter when they are open in the summer they also function as sun blinds. The horizontal shutters on the opposite side are smaller and more narrow, reminiscent of slits in the façade of a farm house. Instead of overlapping shingles, the panels are slightly ajar for the particular moment where light can protrude through the shutters. Save this picture!© Lard BuurmanThe roofs are in contrast with the original farms where thatching hangs over the outside walls. The thatched roof of the ‘Entrance house’ has been set deep into its wooden building volume, creating a band where the roof and the ground literally fold into one another , removing the demarcation between architecture and landscape, and between public and private, and considers it as one whole. In the original farm, the dwelling and the hayloft are two essential spaces. These historic components will have new significance in the ‘Entrance house’ . The flexible shell of the dwelling makes walls unnecessary and creates one large interior space. The hayloft hangs above the middle of the open space like a floor and has a intimate, cozy atmosphere. When the shutters on this hayloft are opened, there is an opportunity to view the Overijssel’s exquisite landscape. Save this picture!© Lard BuurmanThe Grote Scheere country estate is a prime example of new economic support for country estates in the Netherlands. When complete, the proposed dwellings and existing buildings will create a unique country estate driven by qualities in the landscape. The strength of the Groote Scheere is that the estate is recognized through the dwelling typology and strong relationship to its history, context, the landscape and each other.Save this picture!© Lard BuurmanProject gallerySee allShow lessEuropean Workshop Waterfront Urban DesignArticlesMark Magazine #25Articles Share “COPY” The Netherlandslast_img read more

The Clients had been visiting Skye with their dogs for many years. They love the landscape and positively enjoy the unpredictable weather and choose to eat outdoors in all seasons. They brought to us photographs of their main home which is simple and minimal, a CD of their favourite music and the encouragement to do something different. Save this picture!© Andre Lee The site is at the end of the road at Aird of Sleat, Skye, on the Scottish West Coast. It has shore access and extraordinary views back to Knoydart, Morar, Ardnamurchan and down the coast to the island of Eigg. There are views on 3 sides and it was decided to tuck the bedrooms behind the main living spaces to enable us to create a terrace from the kitchen for the morning light, a terrace from the dining space for the afternoon light and a terrace off the main bedroom for the evening light. Save this picture!© Andre Lee The design developed into 2 distinct forms with a stepped foundation to give additional height to the main living space and to allow views across the dining space from the kitchen to Eigg beyond the fireplace. This step in the foundation corresponded precisely to the slope in the landscape. The link between the 2 forms houses a utility room and shower room. Save this picture!© Andre Lee The proportions, massing and siting of this house are derived from traditional forms; narrow in span and tight to the ground. It is clad in a skin of narrow larch cladding walls and roof. It is hidden from view from the rest of the township and sits quietly in its place on the edge of its world. Despite its obvious abstraction from the local vernacular it remains a house rooted in its place and a direct response to both site and brief.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitect’s Eye 2013 Competition WinnersArchitecture NewsAlfenz Bridge / Marte.Marte ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Area:  200 m² Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Dualchas Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Houses Tigh Port na Long / Dualchas ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTigh Port na Long / Dualchas Architects Save this picture!© Andre Lee+ 17 Share 2010 Projects CopyHouses•Perth, United Kingdom United Kingdom ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/385980/tigh-port-na-long-dualchas-architects Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/385980/tigh-port-na-long-dualchas-architects Clipboard Year:  Photographs “COPY” Tigh Port na Long / Dualchas Architects 2010 CopyAbout this officeDualchas ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPerthHousesUnited KingdomPublished on June 13, 2013Cite: “Tigh Port na Long / Dualchas Architects” 13 Jun 2013.

The Fraião house, located in Braga, is a project set up on two floors in a “V” shape, that was conceived to take advantage of the privileged views over the city. The house lies on a densely populated hillside with unique houses and an excellent sun exposure, providing an extraordinary glimpse into the landscape, composing a mesmerizing image. One of the key concerns was to create a fluid and permeable housing concept, without the loss of privacy. For that reason, it was developed a central body to host the social area, and two rows for the more private functions, creating a “V” shape with arms focusing the sights over the city.Save this picture!© João MorgadoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© João MorgadoDue to the site’s slope, the house was developed to articulate an entry floor at street level with a lower floor, where the living room connects entirely with the garden and the swimming pool. That has allowed creating a very discreet entrance with a fast access to the ground floor, without evidencing the 930.00 square meters that form the house. The main idea was to develop a project that can trigger emotions as the client walks through the house, providing in each moment new points of interest and comfort sensation.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe main entrance is done through a porch, in which a large window, allows to take a glimpse on the interior of the house, through the large double height area, displaying the living room in the lower floor and the view over the city. As soon as one enters the house, the double height area with glass facade provides a wonderful perception on the scale of the volume, marked by architectural details and decorative pieces with a unique design. A scenic spiral staircase takes us into the ground floor, standing out in the vastness of the double height area.Save this picture!© João MorgadoCars are one of the client’s greatest passions, owning a vast private collection, that was considered an important feature to explore in the project. To host those vehicles, it was created a garage volume in the upper floor, that invades the social space. That volume, in the see-through glass, is visible from any part of the living room, providing a showcase to display that collection.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe materials used in the house have been chosen because of their low maintenance and durability. The volumetric base is the concrete, formed with horizontal wooden slat. The exposed concrete contrasts with the wood tones, the material used as a negative in opposition to the brute concrete mass. Volumetry, functionality, and materials were combined in order to create a comfortable environment and at the same time a sense of greatness, exploring carefully every detail of the house.Save this picture!© João MorgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessPaju Brave House / June ArchitectSelected ProjectsMoveable Walls : Transparency and Accessibility in 6 Works of ArchitectureArticles Share “COPY” Fraião House / TRAMA arquitetosSave this projectSaveFraião House / TRAMA arquitetos Fraião House / TRAMA arquitetos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904656/fraiao-house-trama-arquitetos Clipboard Save this picture!© João Morgado+ 45Curated by Pedro Vada Share Architects: TRAMA arquitetos Area Area of this architecture project Projects Houses CopyAbout this officeTRAMA arquitetosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBragaPortugalPublished on December 23, 2018Cite: “Fraião House / TRAMA arquitetos” [Casa Fraião / TRAMA arquitetos] 23 Dec 2018.

USDA Food Safety Inspections Continue During Government Shutdown

first_img Previous articleSecond Round of Trade Aid Payments UnderwayNext articleMcKinney and Foreign Ag Service Worked to Expand Ag Trade in 2018 Andy Eubank USDA Food Safety Inspections Continue During Government Shutdown Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Food Safety Inspections Continue During Government Shutdown By Andy Eubank – Dec 26, 2018 USDA-food-inspections-to-continueUSDA’s food safety inspectors are among the essential employees who will remain on the job during the US government shutdown, so the lapse in funding isn’t halting essential USDA services. Those inspectors will be available as usual to check meat, poultry and egg products. Nearly ninety percent of the Food Safety and Inspection Service’s 9,500 employees will be on the job.“FSIS inspectors are on site at every plant for slaughter facilities during all hours of operation,” says Acting Deputy Undersecretary Carmen Rottenberg. “A plant can’t operate in a slaughter operation without our government inspectors there on duty. And for processing establishments the government inspectors once per production shift, and that is statutory.”Helping to ensure that meat processing activities can continue is one reason USDA inspectors are essential. Protecting American food safety is another.20170810-OSEC-KJH-“The job of FSIS inspectors is to make sure that all domestic and imported meat, poultry and processed egg products are safe and wholesome,” Rottenberg said.More than 7,000 inspectors are spread throughout the country. Nearly seventy percent of the forest service’s 33,000 employees will continue maintaining safety at the nation’s forests. Nearly ninety percent of Agricultural Marketing Service employees will continue their grading and inspection services, as well as procuring commodities for nutrition assistance programs. Also, more than 60 percent of Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service employees will be on hand to inspect fruits, vegetables and birds at borders and quarantine facilities.Other programs not affected by the shutdown include:Eligible households will still receive monthly Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for January.Most other domestic nutrition assistance programs, such as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, WIC, and the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, can continue to operate at the State and local level with any funding and commodity resources that remain available.The Child Nutrition (CN) Programs, including School Lunch, School Breakfast, Child and Adult Care Feeding, Summer Food Service and Special Milk will continue operations into February. Meal providers are paid on a reimbursement basis 30 days after the end of the service month. Carryover funding will be available during a lapse to support FY 2019 meal service.Provision of conservation technical and financial assistance (such as Conservation Reserve Program, Environmental Quality Incentives Program, and easement programs). Some farm payments (including direct payments, market assistance loans, market facilitation payments, and disaster assistance programs) will be continued for the first week of a shutdown.Market Facilitation Program payments.Trade mitigation purchases made by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.Agricultural export credit and other agricultural trade development and monitoring activities.USDA’s Market News Service, which provides critically important market information to the agricultural industry.Sources: USDA and NAFB News SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Authorities shut down opposition radio station

The authoritiesaccuse the station of “threatening state security”.Reporter Without Borders urges President Kumba Yalla to see to it that the radio station is allowed to start broadcasting again as soon as possible. “The station is often quite critical of the government, but in no way does it pose a threat to the country’s stability,” stated Robert Ménard, the organisation’s secretary-general. “The government is simply using this as a pretext to silence an opposition voice,” he added.On 13 February, in the afternoon, several police officers visited the BombolomFM offices and forced the station off the air. The radio station’s buildingswere sealed and employees can no longer access their desks.According to Secretary of State for Information Joao Manuel Gomes, the stationis accused of “broadcasting false news likely to threaten national sovereigntyand the country’s stability.”According to Bombolom FM management, the step may be linked to comments made on the air by an opposition politician who criticised the president.Reporters Without Borders recalls that Bombolom FM has long been a government target. In the past few years, the radio station has regularly been threatened or subjected to various forms of pressure, and several of the station’s journalists have been detained or summoned by the courts.
