Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Avast Plc, Sage Group, and XP Power. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge I think some of the best shares to buy now are located in the tech sector. With that in mind, here are five related stocks I’d buy for my portfolio right now. Best shares to buy nowThe first two stocks I’d buy are not the sort of businesses most people imagine when they think of tech companies. Those tend to be software owners. However, hardware is just as important. And that’s why I’d buy Spirent Communications and XP Power. 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…Spirent makes communications equipment and is currently seeing an increase in demand for technology as the world moves towards 5G technology. Meanwhile, XP manufactures AC-DC power supplies for the electronics industry. It’s a major supplier for electronic equipment producers, and its kit forms a vital part of manufacturers’ infrastructure.As the technology industry continues to expand, I think both companies should experience growing sales and earnings. That said, I’d note the fact that the electronics industry is incredibly competitive. Just because these organisations dominate their respective sectors today doesn’t mean they will always continue to do so. It’s the most considerable challenge they face right now.  Still, I think these are some of the best shares to buy now and I’d acquire both. Recurring RevenueSubscription-based software businesses can be some of the market’s most lucrative firms. This is why I’d buy both Sage Group and Avast for my portfolio. Both companies produce software that fulfil critical functions. For Sage, it’s accounting while for Avast, it’s cybersecurity. Customers are unlikely to want to skimp on these products, so they’re willing to pay a high price and sign up for lengthy contracts. These are the primary reasons why I believe Saga and Avast are some of the best shares to buy now. Both companies have strong recurring revenue streams, giving management plenty of capital to invest for growth and return cash to investors.The primary challenges these companies face are reputation and competition. Saga and Avast have strong businesses today, but there are plenty of competitors in the market. So they need to make sure their offering to consumers remains solid, or competitors could grab market share. This could have a significant negative impact on growth. Computer servicesThe final company I believe is one of the best shares to buy now is Computacenter. I see this as an all-rounder. The group helps its customers transform and manage IT infrastructure.As many companies have been forced online over the past year, business has exploded. Earnings per share increased 51% last year, off the back of 26% growth in 2019.As the world becomes more and more reliant on technology, I reckon demand for Computacenter’s services will continue to grow. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today. However, the main risk facing the enterprise is competition. The sector is incredibly competitive. As such, it’s always going to struggle to win clients in such an environment.  Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

From the Architect: The existing 1970s brick and weatherboard dwelling on a large triangular site was well loved but had been outgrown by its family. The client had a diverse brief, including both definite and abstract goals such as maintaining and enhancing connections to the established garden, adding a master bedroom suite, providing a secure and defined entrance and reconfiguration and refurbishment of the existing layout and spaces. The combination of these elements led to the non-conventional addition of a new pavilion to the front of the site. The form of the addition closely references the typical gable form of the existing house but juxtaposes it with fiercely contemporary detailing and materiality.Save this picture!© Nick StephensonSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Nick StephensonOnce through the sheltered entry and front door, the garden aspect is immediately appreciated with a large-scale, fully glazed sliding door that opens onto the landscaped rear yard. This glazed bridge forms the connection between the old and the new and is set down from the main living zone, helping the extension sit snugly on the site.Save this picture!© Nick StephensonThe internal rearrangement of living areas, kitchen and bathroom now complement the existing 3 bedrooms and take full advantage of the northerly aspect and elevated position of the house on this steeply sloping site. A secondary entry, rumpus room and home office, along with amenities and ample storage, are tucked into the undercroft at the rear. The outcome is a fully updated home, suitable for the changing demands of a contemporary family lifestyle. It maintains a comfortable and lived-in ambiance and pays homage to the best aspects of the original cottage.Save this picture!© Nick StephensonProject gallerySee allShow lessIE Spaces for Innovation PrizeOpportunities2 Classic Marcel Breuer Buildings At Risk for Demolition to Meet Opposite FatesArchitecture News Share Photographs:  Nick Stephenson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

Swapathon to raise funds for disability organisations

first_img Tagged with: Celebrity collaboration Community fundraising Events ADD International is inviting UK disability organisations and their supporters to take part in the first nationwide swapathon to promote and raise money for disability rights.‘Stamp and Swap’ will take place on Friday 3 December 2010, the International Day of Disabled People.

It could be an experience or a physical item. You could be the boss for the day, swap some essential skills with your workmates or get rid of those unwanted books, DVDs or fashion accessories in exchange for something you’d really like. The key is to have fun while supporting the rights of disabled people.”The campaign has attracted support from celebrities including paralympian Anne Wafula Strike, TV presenter Keith Chegwin, Eastenders actor David Proud and actress Julie Fernandez.ADD International, previously known as Action on Disability and Development, is a UK-based charity that works with the disability movements in Africa and Asia from a human rights perspective.UK disability organisations can register for the campaign by contacting Gemma White at ADD International on 01373 473064 or email [email protected] registered, benefiting charities will be listed on the ‘Who will benefit’ area of the campaign website and they can use the resources available to download to promote their involvement to their supporters.ADD International will log the support that comes in from each charity and return the proportion due after an independent audit in January Howard Lake | 18 November 2010 | News  40 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Swapathon to raise funds for disability organisations About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Higher education commissioner praises OC

first_img WhatsApp Higher education commissioner praises OC Pinterest Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Facebookcenter_img Local NewsEducation Facebook Pinterest Previous articleChurch and altar dedicationNext articleNew ODC board member appointed admin Odessa High’s Jesus Montes (12) passes the ball in the first half of the Bronchos’ 2-1 loss to the Del Rio Rams, Tuesday night at Ratliff Stadium. In talking about rising graduation rates at universities and community colleges, Texas Commissioner of Higher Education Raymund Paredes said Odessa College has been recognized as one of the best community colleges in the country.During a teleconference with news media Wednesday, Paredes said Odessa College has seen a significant increase in student success by going to eight-week terms instead of the traditional 16-week semesters.Paredes said it is apparently a lot more beneficial to students who are working in a highly volatile industry like oil.He said there are institutions looking into eight-week terms, but he couldn’t think of one in Texas that has implemented it. In the Gulf Coast region, institutions have been looking at ways to shorten the path to a credential because of the need for people in the building trades after Hurricane Harvey.“Odessa is still pretty much on its own at this point. The numbers they are developing and the success they are having is being noticed around the state,” Paredes said.The college has had many counterparts from around the country visit the campus to see how the eight-week terms work.Odessa College was one of two community colleges to win a Star Award from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Star Award. It was recognized for its eight-week terms.Other winners were Austin Community College, University of Houston — UH in 4 and University of Houston–Downtown– The Gateway Course Innovation Initiative.Paredes also touched on graduation rates and the need for them to rise for the state to meet its 60 by 30 Texas goal of having 60 percent of adults age 25 to 34 earning a degree or certificate by 2030, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, and dual credit.DACA, he said, is “critically important” to Texas and that there are tens of thousands of students who are in that category.“… The United States is their home country,” Paredes said. “A lot of these young people don’t even remember living anywhere else. Many of them don’t speak the language of the country from which they came. The evidence is that they achieve at same level as (students born in the United States). They fill jobs that would be underfilled without the participation by those students. I think we need to find an equitable solution to situation for these young people.”On a separate item, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board also is conducting a study that is expected to be completed by the end of 2018 on dual credit and college readiness. Dual credit courses allow students to earn college credit while still in high school.Legislation allowed more students to take the courses sooner in their high school careers, but Paredes said there is some question about whether students who take them are ready for them. He said it needs to be considered whether the option was expanded too quickly and compromised the integrity of the courses.He said the “explosion” of students taking dual credit started in 2015. Paredes added that he expects the matter to get attention by the legislature in 2019. Scores on the TSI Assessments, SAT and ACT help determine whether a student is college ready.He said some districts are not requiring the students to be college ready when they take dual credit classes, or their definitions of college readiness are probably too lenient.“We’ve got reason to be concerned. We’re not going to start howling doom and gloom until we see data,” Paredes said.According to the information he’s read, Paredes said there are about 110,000 students in Texas high schools that are “demonstrably college ready, and yet right now the last time looked at data have 160,000 taking dual credit.”More Information By admin – January 12, 2018 last_img read more

During the hearing today, when the matter was called for hearing before a Bench led by CJI Bobde, the matter had to be passed over as no Counsels appeared before the Court. When the matter was called out again at the end of the Bench, the Court directed that the matter be dismissed as the Counsels failed to appear again on second call. A three-judge Bench of CJI Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramaniam issued the direction in a plea seeking direction to Centre and State government to allocate separate and adequate funds for smooth, effective and impartial functioning of the judicial system.The plea also sought directions for the constitution of a separate Secretariat with the Supreme Court and High Courts to manage the funds allocated to the judiciary. According to the public interest petition, the allocation of the bigger portion of budget in the segments other than judiciary amounts to parallel situation where judiciary is not able to discharge its functions in the way its is expected to do so. The Central and State Governments do not even consider judiciary important so as to organise funds or to make any establishment in the infrastructure of the judiciary. The petitioner through his plea argued that the political discussion on the judiciary and pending matters relates to the vacancy in the court of Justice but if appointed then the judiciary needs to have appropriate funds to tackle such amount of loads. The allocation of the bigger portion of budget in the segments other than judiciary amounts to parallel situation where judiciary is not able to discharge its’ functions in the way it is expected to do so. The plea also contended that the Judiciary is fully dependent for allocation of funds on the Centre and State Government which are the regular ‘litigants before the Courts of law, and due to such dependency, the courts of law have influence of the governments in its judgments. “In the last more than 70 years, there has been no proper allocation of funds adequate with the corresponding increase in population, legal awareness, increase in legislation and as such the same is a clear violation of the basic structure of the Constitution as well as basic human rights” the plea readsThe plea further stated that there are many Chief Justices of India who have also observed and held that the poor allocation to the judiciary has been a contentious issue. It is also observed that the Governments hardly spend on the judiciary less than 0. 5 per cent of the budget.

Rental deposit scams stole nearly £1m off tenants during 2017, says campaigner

first_imgFraudster on the run: James BennettRental deposits protection campaigner and insurance-based scheme operator Ajay Jagota (picture,below) has claimed that £926,000 in deposits has been stolen from tenants during 2017.The figure, which only shows the tip of the iceberg because it only reports reported cases, reveals that 25 landlords and letting agents were convicted this year of stealing various amounts ranging from a few hundred to, in one case, £130,000.The most common way deposits are taken illegally is through simple scams – people posing as landlords or letting agents and then taking deposits for fake properties or homes they haven’t been instructed to market or have the authority to rent out.A good example of this is James Bennett, who was sentenced to six years in prison last week after conning at least 17 people in South London out of £10,000 in total using this method.Rental depositsBennett, who failed to appear in court and is now on the run, used listings on to advertise rooms to rent in Brixton, Walworth, Clapham, Elephant & Castle and Tooting despite not having permission to do so.Ajay JagotaIn each case he was staying at the property but, prior to being evicted, advertised the rooms to rent, pretend to be the landlord, and then took deposits from desperate renters looking for places to rent at £725 a time.Unlike other deposit fraudsters, Bennett made no attempt to hide who he was and provided his passport as proof of identity when issuing rental contracts.Despite his obvious guilt, Bennett pleaded not guilty but then failed to attend court on December 11th. Anyone spotting him should call DS Adam Clifton at Southwark CID on 07747 765719.Read Eddie Hooker’s view on insurance-based deposit schemes like Dlighted.Ajay Jagota scams deposit fraud deposits Eddie Hooker December 22, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

An edible autopsy
