first_img The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Or you could try this exciting opportunity. If I was looking to invest £1k today, I’d think myself lucky. Following the stock market crash, there are plenty of bargains to be found on the FTSE 100. The biggest problem might be deciding which dirt-cheap share to buy, given the choice out there.One issue I wouldn’t worry about is whether the stock market rally is set to continue, as Covid-19 vaccination programmes are put in place. While we all want the pandemic to be over as quickly as possible, what happens in the next few months shouldn’t affect how you invest £1k today.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…You should be investing your £1k for a minimum five years and, ideally 20, 30, or 40 years. Over such a lengthy period, today’s number one worry will one day seem like a blip.Tempting FTSE 100 sharesIf I was looking to invest £1k today, or any other sum, I’d spend more time wondering which sector to target.Should I make a beeline for shares that have been hit hardest by the pandemic, such as airlines, cruise operators, pub chains, hotels and oil & gas firms? Or should I look for stocks that have done well out of the last six months? Or, to put it another way, should I buy dirt-cheap Cineworld, or expensive Ocado Group?I like to think of myself as a contrarian investor, one who loves picking up shares when they’re cheap, with the aim of holding them for the long run. However, I’m wary of companies such as budget airline operator easyJet and jet engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce Group. Both have surged since Pfizer‘s vaccine news broke on 9 November, but things could get tougher going forward. Their businesses have taken a severe hit. They’re not as cheap as they were. The recovery will be bumpy.On the other hand, I’d shun lockdown winners. Food delivery companies such as Ocado and Just Eat Takeaway have climbed strongly as orders grew, and could suffer as people rush to eat out again next year. They’re too expensive for me.Here’s how I’d invest my £1k todayIf investing £1k in today’s market, I’d target top FTSE 100 companies with strong and stable future. Pharmaceutical giants AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline would be high on my list, for income and growth. So would consumer companies with a broad portfolio of everyday branded products and loyal customers, notably Reckitt Benckiser Group and Unilever, as well as spirits giant Diageo.US tech stocks have thrashed all-comers. I’d consider investing my £1k in FTSE 100 winners of the future such as Experian, Relx and Sage Group. I think UK shares could start playing catch-up if, and when, Brexit is resolved.There’s a lot of choice out there. Whichever stock I buy, I’ll be holding it for the long term, to give my money time to grow. Then I’d start planning my next £1k investment. The more money you invest, the better your chances of achieving financial freedom, and possibly even retiring early.

first_imgNewsLocal NewsDesign changes on the menu at St Camillus’ Hospital in LimerickBy Alan Jacques – June 13, 2014 816 STUDENTS at the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) have given St Camillus’ Hospital some food for thought after proposing  design changes to the existing dining room at the Shelbourne Road campus.Students and staff from the Interior Design and Technology Degree course at LIT recently met with St Camillus’ Hospital catering team to survey the existing canteen and produce digitally created scheme designs.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The students presented the team at St Camillus’ with a variety of proposals which included the introduction of various curved architectural forms, coordinated furnishings and warm colour schemes which help to create a more inviting environment as a social space outside of meal times.Speaking about the project, Niall McPartlin, lecturer in the Built Environment at LIT commented, “Students on the Interior Design and Technology course at LIT are very fortunate in that they are afforded the opportunity to work on real projects.

As of December, the group now predicts starts will total 1.05 million.For the overall economy, forecasters told the Journal they expect gross domestic product (GDP) will grow 2.2 percent in 2014, dialing back their prediction of 2.8 percent growth made last year. While second- and third-quarter reports have looked solid, the country spent much of the year’s first half shaking off a weak first quarter, which saw GDP contract at an annual rate of 2.1 percent.Despite missing on their predictions last year, the panel remains hopeful for 2015, forecasting 1.22 million housing starts and GDP growth of 2.9 percent as the job market continues to recover and wages pick up.

first_imgEditor’s Note: A version of this report appeared in the March 6 edition of The Observer.Commencement Day at Saint Mary’s celebrates more than just the graduating class of 2014 — this year, the College will honor several alumnae and other women who have made a difference around the world.Judith Mayotte will deliver the Commencement address, according to a College press release. The humanitarian, professor, author and Emmy Award-winning producer will receive an honorary doctor of humanities degree at the ceremony.“Judith Mayotte is an internationally recognized humanitarian who has spent her life working to affect positive change for refugees and others,” College President Carol Ann Mooney said in a statement.Mayotte has served on several human rights-activist boards, including Refugees International, the Women’s Refugee Commission as chair, the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation, the International Rescue Committee, Visionaries and the Global Ethics and Religion Forum, the press release stated.The Clinton administration appointed Mayotte in 1994 to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration as a special adviser on refugee issues and policy. She has earned recognition from the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, which honored her with the Foundation’s World Citizenship Award in 2009, according to the press release.Chemist Helen Murray Free will also receive an honorary doctorate at Commencement. Free conducted research on diagnostic testing that resulted in improvements for products in laboratory and home settings, according to the press release.“I am delighted to recognize two exceptional women this year with honorary degrees from Saint Mary’s College,” Mooney said in the release. “Their backgrounds and achievements fit perfectly with our dreams for our graduates.”Free and her late husband, biochemist Alfred Free, worked in medical diagnostics. Together, they researched and developed the first dip-and-read diagnostic test strips that quantify glucose levels in urine, the press release stated.Free has obtained seven patents and has received awards ranging from the 1980 American Chemical Society’s Garvan Medal to the 2010 National Medal of Technology and Innovation and the American Chemical Society’s 66th National Historic Chemical Landmark designation in 2010, according to the press release.Sara Belanger, a 1971 alumna, will receive the President’s Medal at Commencement, which “is presented rarely and exclusively to those who have offered exceptional contributions to the life of the College and the community,” the release stated. Belanger served on the Saint Mary’s Board of Trustees and the Alumnae Association Board of Directors.“Sarah has demonstrated her devotion to and love for Saint Mary’s College throughout the many years she has served the College as a valued member of the Board of Trustees and the Alumnae Association Board of Directors,” Mooney said.Earley is one of three chairs directing the College’s $80 million “Faith Always, Action Now” capital campaign. She and her husband, Notre Dame alumnus Tony Earley, agreed to match $1 million in the fundraising to renovate and expand Angela Athletic Facility.“The gift has been a catalyst for additional gifts toward what will be called the Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex, a facility that will be a central gathering spot that provides space for fitness and wellness, classes, varsity teams, intramurals and the Women’s Health Center,” the press release stated.Tags: 2014 Commencement, Awards, saint mary’slast_img read more

first_imgBentley plays in the five-team Chinook Hockey League, against teams from Fort Saskatchewan, Okotoks, Innisfail and Stony Plain.The Generals dominated the league, finishing in top spot with a 23-1 record.However, Macleod said the playoff run was anything but easy as Bentley won the league championship by defeating Innisfail in the final.“At the beginning of the year I was a little unsure I was making the right decision to play for the Generals but as the year went on, playing with the guys, in realized I missed hockey,” MacLeod, finishing the season with a goal and six assists in 13 games, said.The sour taste MacLeod experienced at the beginning of the season came from time toiling in the ECHL and SPHL.“I really didn’t like the business side of hockey,” said MacLeod, who played for South Carolina Stingrays, Columbus Cottonmouths and Stockton Thunder.MacLeod graduated from Nelson Minor Hockey before playing for Beaver Valley Nitehawks of the KIJHL.He joined Penticton of the BCHL before being traded to Camrose Kodiaks during his final season of junior hockey.MacLeod then spent four years on a NCAA hockey scholarship at Michigan Tech where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering.“I realized after a few seasons (of professional hockey) I wasn’t going to make NHL. I was happy to have an education and decided to go and start the next chapter of my life.”The Generals are 2-0 at the Allan Cup tournament with round robin wins over host Clarenville Caribous 3-2 and a 4-1 victory over Lameque Au Ptit Mousse from New Brunswick.Bentley now faces GF Windsor in semi final round action Friday with a win advaning the Alberta squad into the Final Saturday.MacLeod said the teams at the Allan Cup tournament are very evenly matched.“We could have just as been 0-2 as 2-0,” he said.“But we have a very deep teams and a great group of guys who are really fun play on the same team with.”A team with a Nelsonite playing that will hopefully give Nelson that historical Allan Cup victory. A hockey player from Nelson is trying to accomplish what no Nelson team has ever done before — win the Allan Cup, emblematic of Canadian Men’s Senior AAA Hockey supremacy.Nelson Minor Hockey grad Alex MacLeod is currently in Clarenville, Newfoundland playing in the six-team 2015 Allan Cup Tournament for the Bentley Generals.“I was pretty young when Nelson played for the Allan Cup,” MacLeod said from Clarenville where the Generals were enjoying a much-needed day off in preparation for a spot in Friday’s semi finals.“I remember hearing about Nelson playing in the 1965 and in the 80’s but that about it.”The Allan Cup is the oldest national championship in the country dating back 106 years as the best Senior hockey teams in Canada battled it out for the coveted prize.Nelson Maple Leafs were part of the Western International Hockey League, playing in three Allan Cup Finals in 1965, 1986 and 1987.The WIHL folded in the late 1980s.Playing in the 2015 Allan Cup tournament was probably the last thing on MacLeod’s mind when the season started for the Generals in the fall.Deciding to retire from professional hockey after a few seasons in the East Coast Hockey League and Southern Professional Hockey League, MacLeod was working as a mechanical engineer in Fort McMurray, Alta., when a friend told him about the Generals Hockey Club.“I asked him to gently tell the coach I was interested in still playing,” MacLeod explained.The rest, they say, is history as Macleod’s name was given to a company in Calgary that had an opening for — you guessed it — a recent mechanical engineer graduate.“It all happened within a few weeks,” MacLeod said.last_img read more
