The UK stock market has been a difficult arena in the last year. While US markets have thrived despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the FTSE 100 hasn’t fared so well. The UK’s primary stock index is down 10% compared to this time last year.I still see value in buying UK companies in a Stocks and Shares ISA though. A Stocks and Shares ISA allows me to invest my money in the stock market, rather than having it sit as cash in my bank account.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…UK citizens have an allowance of £20,000 for the tax year in which they can receive tax breaks. While there is more risk involved than in a Cash ISA, Stocks and Shares ISAs can be a good way to get started in the stock market.But what UK shares would I add to my ISA today? While the FTSE 100 is down in the last 12 months, I think these two companies could represent a buying opportunity.BAE SystemsDefence contractor BAE Systems (LSE:BA) has come through the pandemic relatively unscathed in comparison to fellow FTSE 100 constituents in terms of sales, with no major sign of a reduction in demand for its products from the governments it sells to.BAE has consistently been one of the top dividend yielders in the index, and that has remained so throughout the pandemic. The payout currently yields 4.71% against a share price of 490p and is an attractive prospect for income investors.It must be noted, however, that the shares have slipped over the last year and generally don’t have a history of strong growth. In the last 12 months the company’s share price has declined 27%. There is risk involved in that if a handful of countries were to reduce their defence spending, BAE’s revenue would be adversely affected.But the indications are that that is unlikely to happen. If some of the big defence spenders were to cut costs at all, I would have thought 2020 would have been the time to do it. Spending remained strong in the UK, US, and Saudi Arabia.BAE’s strong position in the market and reliable dividend makes me confident that the share price can return to growth over the next few years.InterContinental Hotels GroupDespite the huge reduction in number of people staying in hotels over the last year, InterContinental Hotels Group (LSE:IHG) has managed to see its share price grow over the last year.The shares are worth 4% more than they were 12 months ago. The conception and rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine programme has helped travel and leisure stocks rally in recent months.With the news that around one-third of the UK population is now vaccinated and a roadmap for opening up the economy announced, there are signs of a return to normality in the sector.That said, it may take quite a bit longer for the vaccines to be rolled out to Europe and further afield, which would have a negative effect on IHG’s profits and share performance.The group, which owns hotel chains Regent and Crowne Plaza, announced a 48% reduction in revenues in a trading update this week.

In total, three members of staff have left as a result of the restructuring, and two others left to take on new roles during the consultation period.The Anglican Communion Office (ACO) is the international secretariat for the worldwide Anglican Communion family of churches and brings together three English charities: the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC), the Lambeth Conference and the Anglican Alliance. The restructuring only affected those staff employed by the ACC.The restructure will see the ACO carry out less direct programmatic work, with the focus shifting to facilitate work carried out by member churches, networks, commissions and mission agencies. It follows a review of the operational priorities of the ACO last year, carried out by a group chaired by Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Cape Town, the primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.Having deliberated on the report of the review group, the Standing Committee proposed the abolition of 10 posts. Two of those have been saved following the consultation. Five other roles were subject to adjustment. In addition, the review proposed the creation of seven new roles. Five of these have been filled by existing staff. The remaining vacant posts will be advertised shortly.The restructure sees the end of the ACO’s Mission Department, but the ACO will still play a part in helping the Anglican Communion’s 41 member churches work collaboratively in this area.“Mission is still very important in the Anglican Communion as it is in all Christian churches,” the secretary general, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, said. “But mission is best carried out at the local level in parishes, dioceses and provinces. With our new structure, the ACO will help to coordinate and communicate the mission carried out by our member churches.“Our new way of working, which we are now beginning to implement, will see us embrace more local expressions of Anglicanism from around the world, and we will facilitate the listening and sharing of experience to enhance mutual learning and further mission, as our Standing Committee have asked us to do.“The loss of jobs is sad not only for the staff directly affected by it, but for all of us. I wish them well as they seek the next steps in their ministry and vocation and I encourage you to pray for them and their families.”The Anglican Communion Standing Committee held an online meeting last week and received a report from their restructuring implementation group about how the changes have been applied.

Artists residence shines a light on Québec village. Centre Est-Nord-Est: contemporary architecture inspired by tradition. During the last three decades, the quiet village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli known for its longstanding woodcarving tradition has been a rallying point for artists from various locations around the world. What started as a series of casual encounters in the early 1990’s gradually turned into an artist-in-residence program, open to artists looking for inspiration along the St. Lawrence River.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsConfined to makeshift facilities until 2018, Centre Est-Nord-Est now boasts a brand new building designed by Québec City’s Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes. The 951-square-meter structure, which stands on the outskirts of the village, is the result of an architectural competition launched in 2017. After years of preparation and fundraising, the long-awaited Centre Est-Nord-Est sits elegantly on the same site as the building it replaced.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsAs was obvious from their competition entry, Olivier Bourgeois and Régis Lechasseur who both grew up in relatively remote locations were able to blend their intimate knowledge of Québec’s rural landscapes with their modern-day vision. The long monolithic volume reminiscent of traditional barns evolved quite naturally from their ability to marry tradition and contemporary architecture.Save this picture!MezzanineENE’s front entrance is off the main highway, delicately inserted in the narrow wood-lined façade. Once passed the door, a surprisingly exuberant double height volume awaits visitors, staff and residents alike. This multifunctional space, the true heart of the project, serves as meeting point, lounge, exhibition area, community kitchen, and dining room. One accesses a quieter library zone via a voluptuously curved spiral staircase.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsCarefully framed skylights are carved out of the sloping ceiling, flooding the upper level with natural light while the main floor is mostly lit through large openings giving to an adjacent court. The residents’ combined work and living quarters are located towards the back of the building. Key to the concept was the design of five identical, yet flexible, live-in studios with sleeping mezzanines.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsAs floor requirements vary widely from one discipline to another, the expandable workspace was planned to be highly flexible and adaptable to individual pursuits whether sculpture, performance art, photography or others. Individual studios are reached through a central corridor, which isolates them from the livelier public areas towards the front. Three shared workshops (wood, metal and assembly) are also located along the corridor.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsLocally harvested white cedar was used for the exterior cladding while sheet metal protects the huge sloping roofs, reminders of farm buildings in rural Québec. Given the institution’s modest budget ($2.3 million CAD), interior finishes are mostly plywood, gypsum boards and polished concrete. Acoustically treated gypsum panels were installed on some of the angled ceilings to keep sound reverberation to a minimum. As they designed this unique artistic abode, the architects looked for simple, inventive solutions in order to create the best possible environment for artists. Olivier Bourgeois was not new to the challenge. In 2006, still a student, his final thesis project had been an artists’ residence in the Magdalen Islands.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsThe project caught the eye of architect Todd Saunders just as he was starting to work on his famous Fogo Island hotel and artistic complex. It led to Bourgeois being invited to join Saunders’ team in Bergen, Norway, where he worked on the artists’ studios. In St-Jean-Port-Joli, as in the Newfoundland, Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes gave considerable thought to natural light and to material conditions conducive to reflection, quiet stimulation and experimentation. The region’s artistic community and the village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli in particular were given a true surge of vitality with the recent inauguration of Centre Est-Nord-Est. With its timeless image the vibrant new facility can now easily compete with the most desirable institutions of this type in today’s art world.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsProject gallerySee allShow lessHass House / Feuerstein QuagliaraSelected ProjectsHouse 2040 HS / Robert Parisi Architecture + DesignSelected Projects Share Photographs Projectslast_img read more

Purdue Honors New Certificate of Distinction Winners

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Honors New Certificate of Distinction Winners By Andy Eubank – Feb 9, 2015 SHARE Purdue Honors New Certificate of Distinction Winners Previous articleMidday UpdateNext articleClosing Comments Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Six agricultural leaders received the Purdue University Agricultural Alumni Association’s top award during the group’s annual Fish Fry in Indianapolis.The Certificate of Distinction recognizes contributions to agriculture – and society in general – that go far beyond the requirements of a job or profession.“We are awed by the contributions of professional and community service of this year’s award recipients,” said Donya Lester, executive director of the alumni association. “They represent the best of our agricultural and natural resources profession. Our university, our profession, and certainly a number of our communities are stronger because of their work, and we are delighted that we can honor and thank them at one of Indiana’s largest agricultural meetings.”Certificate of Distinction honorees (all degrees from Purdue) at Saturday’s event are:* Dan J. Arnholt (B.S. 1968) of Columbus, Indiana. Former general manager and CEO of the Bartholomew County REMC, Arnholt has an extensive record of achievement and service to the rural electric utility industry. He wrote several farm energy papers published by the American Society of Agricultural Engineering. He also is co-author of Farmer’s Guide for Electrical Grain Drying. He has served as a member of the Governor’s Task Force Committee on Indiana Agriculture, the Indiana Statewide Competition Task Force, the National Committee for Ag Mechanics and several National Food and Energy Task Forces on Electrical Wiring Systems for Livestock Facilities, Livestock Ventilation, and Farm Energy Audits. He has served on the AgrIInstitute board of directors since 1987, including as chairman in 2004-05, and has been treasurer since 1993. His passion for economic development has led to various roles in community organizations in Columbus, Indiana, and at Purdue. He also has served in many philanthropic organizations.* D. Howard Doster of Waynesville, Ohio. Doster joined the Purdue University agricultural economics faculty as an Extension farm management specialist in 1968 and helped 40 other faculty members start the Purdue Top Farmer Crop Workshop, a program he would lead for more than 30 years. Doster taught six classes at Purdue and co-wrote three high school texts on entrepreneurship. He also created and coordinated 20 annual Farming Together Workshops and coordinated the farm records program and annual Indiana Farm Management Tour. Doster was co-founder and president of the Purdue chapter of agricultural honorary Gamma Sigma Delta. He served as faculty adviser to the Alpha Zeta chapters at Purdue and Ohio State University. In 2006, he led organizing the union of OSU’s Alpha Zeta fraternity with the university’s new Farm House chapter.

In 1981, Evans became vice president and head of the Farm Management Department for Union Central Bank & Trust in Des Moines, Iowa.

He eventually sold Agri Partners Central to Farmers National Co. and worked for FNC as an independent contractor, conducting appraisals on a fee-sharing basis. He was a leader in many professional organizations during his career. Evans is a Life Member of the Purdue Alumni Association and served on the Purdue Alumni Board of Directors, representing Region 13. He was a founding member of the Purdue Alumni Club of Central Iowa and served on its board from 2005 to 2008.* Scott Allen Jamieson (B.S. 1984) of Arlington Heights, Illinois. Jamieson has devoted his career and much of his civic contributions to advancing the tree care profession, keeping arborists safe, protecting and enhancing the urban forest and empowering others to be environmental stewards. He is a vice president of Bartlett Tree Experts, responsible for corporate partnerships and national recruiting in 27 states. He also is director of Bartlett Inventory Solutions, a system for conducting tree inventories and management plans.

He has served on the boards of many national and state professional organizations and taught classes at The Morton Arboretum and Chicago Botanic Garden, introducing local residents and professionals to the latest tree care and landscape practices. Jamieson received Purdue’s Distinguished Agriculture Alumnus Award.* Michael A. Shuter (B.S. 1973) of Frankton, Indiana. Shuter operates Shuter Sunset Farms Inc., a fourth-generation family farm, with his wife, Susan, and sons, Brian and Patrick. He has taken innovative approaches to the operation of corn, soybeans, cattle and hogs. As an example, Shuter was among the first in his area to adopt conservation tillage, going to no-till corn in 1983, partially in response to high energy prices. Innovative finishing houses have computer-controlled ventilation and take pigs from 21 days to market weight in the same building, eliminating shrinkage that can occur with moving to a new building. Shuter’s adherence to sound conservation practices has steadily increased the organic matter content of his soils; soil erosion and excessive water runoff during heavy rains are reduced because of increased cover. Value-added enterprises such as growing popcorn and seed soybeans are integral to the operation. Shuter frequently opens his farm to visitors, including school groups, news reporters and international trade delegations. He has an extensive record of agriculture industry service at the state and national levels, including as a past president of the Indiana Corn Marketing Council.* Thomas E. Springstun (B.S. 1977, M.S. 1981) of Scottsburg, Indiana. Springstun worked in Purdue Extension for 35 years until his retirement in 2012, serving Clark, Greene and Scott counties. Among his accomplishments, Springstun helped to develop a free, countywide recycling program in Scott County amid rising waste disposal costs. The result was savings for the county and more responsible management of waste by residents. The Governor’s Recycling Task Force recognized his work as the Outstanding Recycling Program in 1999. Springstun also distinguished himself in aquaculture education, becoming a leader in promoting the industry and presenting at workshops for people interested in starting an aquaculture venture. Springstun also worked with local government to implement the first Leadership Scott County program, helped to improve the county government’s website and had a key role in establishing the YMCA and Life-long Learning Center. His work in Floyd County included conducting professional horticulture seminars and presenting economic development workshops.Source: Purdue News(Pictured left to right are Dan J.
