Investor appetite for UK shares has picked up fractionally in mid-week trade. The FTSE 100 was last up a little, for instance, and back through 6,700 points as trader confidence steadied. But general buying interest remains constrained by the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. Wincanton’s (LSE: WIN) share price, by contrast, has rocketed on Wednesday following the release of fresh trading details.At 307p the logistics giant is trading at its most expensive levels since the same point last January. Here’s why this UK share has soared 13% from last night’s close.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…Profits to beat forecastsWincanton — which provides logistics and supply chain services — said it had returned to sales growth in the final three months of 2020.The small-cap business has “seen a continued improvement in revenues and profitability since the initial impact of Covid-19 early in 2020”. Because of this, it saw group sales rising 10% year-on-year in its third fiscal quarter following recovery and stabilisation in prior months.This strong trading led Wincanton to predict that full-year profits for the current fiscal period (to March 2021) will come in “materially” ahead of expectations. This is on the proviso that the business doesn’t endure any “unforeseen severe Covid-19 impact in the closing months of the year,” it said.Incidentally, it also said current coronavirus lockdowns aren’t expected to have a “significant” impact on its trading performance.Wincanton reports broad-based growthThe company enjoyed revenues growth across all four core segments. And the business reported its strongest growth in Digital and eFulfilment. The UK share saw revenues here ballooning 40% from the same 2019 period as Covid-19 lockdowns increased online shopping volumes.In addition, its said its third-quarter revenues in the Public and Industrial sector had “been boosted by strong volumes in construction and the increased utilisation of the Group’s shared transport network.”And it noted that the business benefited in recent months from a series of recent contract wins. These include a mandate to provide logistics services at several Inland Border Clearance Centres. A contract for the storage, order fulfilment and delivery of testing kits to priority locations has boosted work volumes too.Meanwhile, Wincanton added that “further significant new business in Digital and eFulfilment for both Waitrose and Dobbies will commence before year-end.”Optimistic wordsThat’s all good news James Wroath, chief executive of Wincanton, was upbeat. He said: “The strong performance of our underlying business and the new contracts we are implementing in our strategic growth markets are clear evidence that we are delivering on our strategy even in the difficult current climate.”City analysts reckon Wincanton’s full-year earnings will slip 24% in the current fiscal period. But they reckon annual profits will rebound 14% in financial 2022. At current prices, this UK share trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11 times.

The brief was to build a residential house for a family and guests in the area of Catapilco, the 5th Region in Chile.Save this picture!SectionThe Principal idea was to build the house with wood. The main strategy was to focus on the wooden section of the house and secondly on its surroundings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Alberto BrowneIt was built with wooden pillars all along the house which are separated at 120 cm intervals. This creates a longitudinal house and highlights the methodology of the construction. This repetition forms a sense of infinity.Save this picture!Detail SectionThe predominant material is wood, for the structure, the floor, the ceiling and the walls. This material was chosen because it is a natural element. Added to which, it was more economical and on site there was little water and electricity.Save this picture!Courtesy of Alberto BrowneThe second feature was the location. Catapilco is situated between the coast and the Andes. The site is close to a eucalyptus forest. The North side faces the coast and the South side faces the mountain. It is a place where nature is a key element. Therefore, the strategy was to use nature’s potential. All the bedrooms face the North side for the view.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe long corridor is situated on the South side. It crosses through the whole house giving a sensation of space and of merging with the hills.Save this picture!Courtesy of Alberto BrowneThere are many points of entry to the house so that the people can feel free while walking through it and also can feel a connection with the surroundings.Project gallerySee allShow lessDoes London Really Need the Garden Bridge?Architecture NewsAberto Studio / AR ArquitetosSelected Projects Share “COPY” Area: 360 m² Area: 360 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2012 Tierras Blancas House / Alberto Browne + Hernán FontaineSave this projectSaveTierras Blancas House / Alberto Browne + Hernán Fontaine Save this picture!Courtesy of Alberto Browne+ 18 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/519386/tierras-blancas-house-alberto-browne-hernan-fontaine Clipboard “COPY” Chile Tierras Blancas House / Alberto Browne + Hernán Fontaine Architects: Alberto Browne + Hernán Fontaine Area Area of this architecture project Year: CopyHouses•Zapallar, Chile 2012 Projects ArchDaily Houses Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/519386/tierras-blancas-house-alberto-browne-hernan-fontaine Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAlberto Browne + Hernán FontaineOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZapallarHousesChilePublished on June 25, 2014Cite: “Tierras Blancas House / Alberto Browne + Hernán Fontaine” 25 Jun 2014.

Whilst public purse funding being made available for the first time is very exciting, the operating cost for every air ambulance charity and the lifesaving work that it does continues to be entirely dependent on public donations and traditional fundraising.”“Air ambulance charities in England are poised to submit a diverse range of applications to help fund capital projects which will deliver good value for money and most importantly benefit the patients and communities they serve. 207 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Health Minister Stephen Hammond has announced a new £10m fund for air ambulance charities, to help them with capital costs of upgrading equipment and facilities.Each of the 18 air ambulance charity will be able to bid for up to £2 million of grant funding – the first time such funding has been made available to them.Air ambulance charities will also be able to partner with NHS Trusts to make joint bids, for example to modernise helipads that are owned by the hospital trust.The call for bids has been developed in collaboration with the Association of Air Ambulances.

Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of Omar Radi, an outspoken freelance journalist and human rights activist who has been imprisoned in Casablanca for criticizing a judge in a tweet last April. The Moroccan authorities must stop using the criminal code to prosecute journalists in connection with their work, RSF said.

A Casablanca appeal court judge had just imposed sentences of up to 20 years in prison on a total of 42 people for participating in the so-called “Hirak” protests in northern Morocco’s Rif region in 2016 and 2017.Describing the judge as an “executioner” in his 5 April tweet, Radi said: “These shameless officials should be neither forgotten nor forgiven.”On the morning of 26 December, Radi was summoned by the judicial police, who transferred the case to the prosecutor’s office. A prosecutor detained him immediately for contempt of court, which is punishable by up to a month in prison under article 263 of the criminal code. At a hearing a few hours later the same day, a court rejected a request by Radi’s lawyers’ for his provisional release and adjourned the case until 2 January.Radi often works for both Moroccan and international media outlets. He has written investigative reports on corruption cases and has of late covered many protests throughout Morocco.“We call for Omar Radi’s immediate release, because the criminal code should not be used to prosecute journalists in connection with their work,” RSF said. “We regret that Morocco continues to impose prison sentences on journalists for press offences. These criminal code provisions continue to be a permanent threat to Moroccan journalists although the 2016 press law abolished prisons sentences for journalists.”Morocco is ranked 135th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

News UpdatesCOVID Death Data: Verify Facts Before Placing Them In Court, Else It Would Amount To Filing Of False Affidavit: Patna HC To Govt Sparsh Upadhyay17 May 2021 9:09 AMShare This – xImage Courtesy: Amit PandeyObserving that in Buxar District of Bihar, if in 10 days only in one crematorium, 789 persons were cremated, then what would be the position in the entire District, the Patna High Court on Monday (May 17) directed the State Government, “All facts first must be verified from all sources and then only placed before us, else it will amount to filing of false/incomplete affidavit”. The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Karol and Justice S. Kumar also directed Government that the official Website maintained by the State of Bihar for recording the births and the deaths be regularly updated. Issue of oxygen The Additional Solicitor General informed the Court that State’s request for enhancement of oxygen (LMO) stood favorably considered by the appropriate authority/Central Government and now the State is entitled to supply of 400 Metric Tonnes (MT) of oxygen (LMO). However, the Court asked the State Government to inform the court about the sufficiency or lack thereof, of the infrastructure for transporting the entire allocated quota of oxygen (LMO) and also to apprise the Court of the infrastructure for storage and transportation up to the point of end-user. Issue of floating dead bodies On the issue of dead bodies found flowing in River Ganges at Buxar, the Court was informed that in all, 81 dead bodies were found flowing in River Ganges, 71 on 10th May 2021; on 11 May 2021; and on 12th May 2021 and immediately, a postmortem of all the dead bodies was got conducted and DNA profiling carried out. It was also made clear that after following the due procedure, last rites of all the dead bodies were performed and that some of the dead bodies were found to be in a mutilated condition. As per the deponent, the dead bodies had “come from Uttar Pradesh due to the upstream of river Ganga” and further, all remedial measures were taken for avoiding pollution in the river Ganges and as such “Mahajal was put on the Boarder of U.P. and Bihar on 10th May 2021.” Court’s observations Further, the Court noted that within ten days, i.e. 5th of May, 2021 to 14th of May, 2021, 789 persons were cremated only at one cremation ground, i.e. Muktidham Charitarban, Buxar. To this, the Court remarked, “In Bihar, District Buxar has a huge population of 17 lakhs persons (approx.). If in ten days only in one crematorium, 789 persons were cremated, then what would be the position in the entire District and that too of persons belonging to all faith. Also, it is not clear from both the affidavits as to whether the deaths occurred/persons cremated were suffering from Covid-19. It would also be important to ascertain the age group of these persons. All such facts needs to be clarified.” Lastly, the Court also said, “We see no reason as to why the deaths, be it 6 or 789, would not have been updated on the official website. Equally, this would apply to all the Districts of Bihar.” Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderTagsPatna High Court Corpses Floating In Ganga Dead Body Management Handling of Dead Body COVID Death Data Patna HC Chief Justice Sanjay Karol Justice S.

NASAby CATHERINE THORBECKE, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Two months after a history-making launch, the first NASA-SpaceX astronauts have undocked from the space station and are set for splashdown on Sunday.Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, who left Earth on May 30, undocked from the International Space Station at about 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday and will splash down off the coast of Florida at 2:48 p.m. ET on Sunday. Their journey will be broadcast live by NASA.Although weather was a top concern as Hurricane Isaias heads to Florida, NASA’s forecasters were encouraged enough to press ahead with undocking.Stakes are high as the astronauts only have 48 hours of oxygen in their capsule now that the Crew Dragon spacecraft has undocked from the ISS.Behnken said a day prior to the undocking he wasn’t concerned about a possible delay.“I still don’t feel nervous about it — we’re focused on the things we need to do to be as safe as possible,” Behnken said about the weather. “We won’t leave the space station without good landing opportunities in front of us. We don’t control the weather, we know we can stay up here longer, there’s more chow.”Their return would mark the first time a commercially built American spacecraft returned from space. It’s also NASA’s first crewed water landing since 1975.Hurley said every spaceflight is a “once-in-a-lifetime experience” for astronauts, but “this one probably is a great topper, at least for me, personally.”“The water-landing portion of it is pretty challenging from a physiological standpoint,” he noted, especially after being in a microgravity environment for months. He said they have exercised “very hard” to help prepare.In addition, Hurley said if they get physically ill during their return they will have the “appropriate hardware.”“Just like an airliner, there are bags if you need them, and we’ll have those ready,” he added. “If that needs to happen, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened in a space vehicle.”Splashdown expectationsThere are seven possible splashdown sites near coastal cities — Pensacola, Tampa, Tallahassee, Panama City, Cape Canaveral, Daytona and Jacksonville — and NASA said it will make a final selection based on several factors, primarily weather. As of Saturday, near Pensacola was considered the primary site.Once the spacecraft enters Earth’s atmosphere, it will deploy two sets of parachutes at about 18,000 feet in altitude and then four more at about 6,000 feet in altitude, according to NASA.After the splashdown, SpaceX will send two boats to first check the capsule and make sure the area around it is free of hypergolic propellant vapors. The second boat will recover the parachutes.The first boat then will hoist the capsule with Hurley and Behnken in it and move it to a stable location for the hatch to be opened as medical professionals look on. After a medical check, Behnken and Hurley will board a NASA plane to Houston.Behnken said Friday he is most excited to see his family and his 6-year-old son upon returning to Earth, saying, “He’s changed a lot in the couple of months that we’ve been up here.”Behnken added that he already has some tips for his wife, fellow astronaut Megan McArthur, who will be on a NASA-SpaceX mission scheduled to launch next spring.“A lot of them will be about how life on the space station goes,” he said. “I’ll definitely have some advice about living inside of Dragon and where best to pack all your personal items so you can get to them conveniently.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
