Manika Premsingh | Tuesday, 11th May, 2021 | More on: ANG BWNG Last May, UK shares were still reeling from the impact of the stock market crash. Because bears ruled the day, their share prices were still quite low. But one year later, they have recovered quite a bit and that includes many penny stocks. N Brown shows sharp share price riseOne of them is the penny stock N Brown (LSE: BWNG), which is up 283% over the year. Yet its share price is still way below the highs at which it started 2020. 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…Considering that the UK lockdown easing is in full swing and the outlook for the consumer economy is full of optimism, it would appear that N Brown’s prospects are brighter now.Consider pre-crisis trendsBut I would take a step back before assuming this. The fact is that unlike other FTSE stocks, this penny stock started falling way before any stirrings of the stock market crash were visible. In January 2020 alone, its share price lost half its value. This can be correlated with its weak performance even pre-2020. Its first update in 2020 was for the 18 weeks ending January 4 2020, when it reported a 5% revenue decline. This followed a 5.4% fall in its half-year report earlier in 2019. It had also already seen a double-digit debt increase. Weak financial performanceAfter the coronavirus crisis of last year, it is no surprise that it is in an even weaker position. But I think that the clothing and homewares provider can begin to recover from here, going by the apparent pent-up consumer demand. At the same time, I would like to see that in its numbers before buying the stock. If it continues to stay weak despite a strong economy, I am not sure I can bet on its recovery. Angling Direct posts strong resultsAt the other end of the spectrum is fishing equipment retailer Angling Direct (LSE: ANG) that reported fantastic full-year results for the year ending January 31 earlier today. Its revenues were up 27% and pre-tax profits were up a whole 279%, more than wiping out the losses from the year before.Its financial year 2022 has also started strong. Additionally, its share price is robust, but still below all-time-highs seen in 2018. It has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 26 times after its latest results, which in the present investing environment suggests to me that its share price can rise further. It is a relatively illiquid stock, so buying and selling it may be less easy than that for big FTSE 100 stocks. Its share price performance has also been somewhat erratic overtime, though it is up 45% in the past year. The upshotOverall, I think that its financial performance in a year when retailers were challenged is noteworthy. It has upgraded its online platform, opened four new stores and is looking to expand in new markets in Europe. It is a buy for me.

He treats it literally – quite in the spirit of our time, which at the same time, «dispels nature» and poeticizes almost any natural landscape. Nature domesticated and «genuine» to the extent is the best decoration for the idyllic family scenes, the existence of such a space is perceived as a luxury.

A brick house over an old stone barnThe project aimed to convert, for residential use, the rustic annexes of the eighteenth-century Villa Saccomani, located on the Moraine hills a few kilometres from Lake Garda and the city of Verona.Save this picture!© atelier XYZBefore the project began, the annexes, part of the villa’s prestigious monumental park, were merely seen as areas of low, architectural value. This negative impact was mainly due to the building, in the twentieth century , of an incongruous extension obtained by elevating walls in concrete blocks on top of the original, picturesque, building which had been constructed with river stone typical of rural buildings of the area.Save this picture!AxonometricThe project foresaw, in the first instance, the demolition of the twentieth century additions stripping the building to its original, fascinating form. Later, a new extension was built with an exposed brick finish. This allows us to clearly identify the original section from the new extension.Save this picture!© atelier XYZTo reduce the excessive colour contrast that would have been formed between the two facing walls ( the colour of red brick against the grey colour of the stone) both surfaces were covered with a rope-coloured scialbatura (an antique technique that involves a type of painting with lime). Seen from a distance, within the villa’s park or the hilly landscape , the expanded building appears as unit; close up however, it is possible to clearly distinguish the original and the new, brick extension.Save this picture!ElevationNonetheless, in order to reduce the contrast of materials that would have been formed between the surface of the rustic stone base and the strong linearity of the new brick extension, we experimented with the laying of new masonry that made the visual impact of new construction less uniform. The laying of the bricks , 30 cm long , was made by rotating the long sides in a seemingly disordered way to form asymmetrical recesses with slight convex and concave corners . This solution gave the new brick surface a striking, movement of light effect, due to the creation of light shadows spread across the entire wall.Save this picture!© atelier XYZOn the side facing the park, the masonry stone coincides with the ground floor and incorporates the living area while the new brickwork defines the first floor bedrooms. The brick wall on the first floor is broken with incisions that define the new windows. The windows’ profiles have been completely installed on the inside so as not to be visible and also emphasize the idea of timeless architecture. Between the window frame and the masonry, without any type of fastening beams, safety glass was installed which acts as an invisible parapet.Save this picture!Floor PlanOn the ground floor, the new windows were installed within the annex’s existing portals and were made with iron profiles in view. In this way greater abstraction is awarded to the extended parts and a more traditional aspect remains for the original section.Save this picture!© atelier XYZThe lower part of the annex comprises a double height, large living room dedicated to the social life of the family and linked to the villa’s park where a new swimming pool has been built . This is the only point where a new opening towards the park was made in the original stone walls. This new opening interrupts the continuity of a high band made of re-enforced concrete that runs on all this facade and serves as both a reinforcement of the stone wall as well as offsetting the height of the original wall and part of the new brickwork aligned with the lintel of the door window.Save this picture!SectionThis new door features a sliding window with concealed hinges and looks like a reinterpretation of visual porosity, typical of Veneto villas with the opening facing the inner park aligned with the opening towards the countryside. The facade of the long narrow hall towards the park is characterized by the presence of a window located at the point of transition between the double height of the hall and part of the rustic, two storey annex.Save this picture!© Filippo BricoloTherefore part of the window frame is made up of stone and the other half is brick , while the other part of the window is entirely brick, emphasizing the difference in height of the original wall . Towards the interior, glass has been directly inserted into the wall so that in the early hours of the morning , a beam of light falls onto the internal wall without the shadows of the window frame.Save this picture!© atelier XYZAs a final point, the project involved the transformation of the “brolo” (an old orchard garden) by creating a large lawn and with the construction of a central swimming pool inspired by the traditional “peschiere” (fishponds) of Veneto villas. The pool was built eliminating the perception of all technological aspects . A 65 cm wide stone defines the boundary between the pool and the great lawn , the overflow tank has been hidden below and all around . A special green-coloured resin treatment allowed for the creation of visual effect, typical of eighteenth-century fish ponds with the water that reflects the sky, trees and buildings.Save this picture!© atelier XYZProject gallerySee allShow lessDean of ‘The Cass’ in London Resigns Over Proposed Relocation PlansArchitecture NewsThe Pavilion / Marlene UldschmidtSelected Projects Share Photographs “COPY” Projects Houses Year: CopyHouses, Adaptive Reuse, Restoration•Sommacampagna, Italy Villa Brolo Saccomani Renovation / Bricolo FalsarellaSave this projectSaveVilla Brolo Saccomani Renovation / Bricolo Falsarella Italy ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/778908/recovery-of-villa-brolo-saccomani-bricolo-falsarella Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY” Architects: Filippo Bricolo Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© atelier XYZ+ 30 Share Villa Brolo Saccomani Renovation / Bricolo Falsarella 2015 CopyAbout this officeFilippo BricoloOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentAdaptive reuseRestorationSommacampagnaatelier XYZItalyPublished on December 22, 2015Cite: “Villa Brolo Saccomani Renovation / Bricolo Falsarella” 22 Dec 2015.

Jim Wicker at New Lisbon reported a good start to the crops in May and there has been great progress since.“Here in Henry County or at least in southern Henry County crop conditions are good to excellent. Soybeans are progressing nicely. It’s been a good year and things are really growing well. We’ve got soybeans starting to flower. Corn is starting to come into pollen shed. We could use a rain but all in all we’re in pretty good shape here.”He says there isn’t a dire need for rain yet but it has been awhile since the last precipitation.“It’s amazing how fast things change,” he explained. “We had about 16 straight days from June 20th to July 4th or 5th where we had a shower every day. That was very good growing conditions for the crops but we’ve now gone 10, 11, 12 days without a lot of measurable rainfall and with temperatures soaring into the 90’s. We’re not showing plant stress yet, but we’re probably nearing that.”And development has also been good because there hasn’t been any unusual or excessive pest pressure other than, “a few more weeds in the soybeans because of all the rain and we just take an extra pass to clean it up with some Roundup a few times. Other than that things look pretty good. We have experienced some leafhoppers in second cutting alfalfa which we just have finally been able to start in the last few days.”Senior Market Analyst Arlan Suderman at Water Street Solutions told HAT Tuesday that Indiana is the bright spot. Corn is firing in the Western Corn Belt states of Kansas, Nebraska, and most recently Iowa.“It’s really critical that they get this rain in the 6-10 day period but the forecasts have pulled dryer for the area for that period. So we could see some losses start to mount.”
Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature printA dumpster fire outside the University House TCU apartment building on South University Drive ignited shortly before 9:39 p.m. Friday night, and no residents were harmed.“We got the call at 9:39 p.m.,” said Mike Noyes, Fort Worth Fire Department Battalion Chief. “There was a fire in the dumpsters which the sprinkler system put out, but the fire continued to smolder in the dumpster for a long time, which caused smoke to continue going up through the trash chute.”Noyes and his battalion arrived on the scene in just under five minutes.“Even if you have the fire knocked down, you can have smoke going up into the building and that’s not good, which is basically what the situation was,” Noyes said. “Generally, the sprinkler systems contain, but we just had to come in and finish putting out the fire, which didn’t take very long.”Noyes said the fire was contained to the dumpster and that the only damage was water and smoke-related.“The only issue in the building was smoke damage because all the water damage from our hoses was into the dumpster area, so that didn’t cause major damage either,” Noyes said. “The Fort Worth Fire Department has a policy once a sprinkler system is activated and shut off that they have to maintain a fire watch until they have a sprinkler company come to the building to reinstate the system to fully operational.”“That’s been done now, so our job is now complete,” Noyes said. “That’s the problem with those trash chutes: the smoke goes up those chutes all into the building.”The cause of the dumpster fire is still under investigation.“There’s a rumor that someone apparently didn’t blow out their candle and just threw it down the trash chute, which potentially caused the fire,” said David Goodman, a senior criminal justice major at TCU. “We were told to find somewhere else to sleep for the night, so they can further investigate the cause of the fire.”On Saturday however, Charles Robinson, University House Marketing Manager, said students were allowed to sleep in their rooms on Friday, and that they are still investigating the cause of the fire.firefire ReddIt Garrett Podell Twitter Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

The request will be considered another court under Turkey’s criminalprocedure law (CMK).Many local and international media attended the news conference held yesterday morningby press freedom organizations including Reporters Without Borders at the initiative ofTurkey’s “Freedom for Journalists” coalition (GÖP).Most of the representatives of these organizations, including Reporters Without Borders,Human Rights Watch, the Helsinki Citizens Assembly and the Turkish Journalists Association(TGV), were unable to attend the first part of the hearing because the courtroom was too small for a trial of thisimportance.The presiding judge’s decision to ban observers who did not have seats was greeted withprotests from the activists. The ban was lifted in the afternoon.When the next hearing is held on 26 December, investigative journalists Ahmet Sik and NedimSener will have spent 10 months in prison and Soner Yalçin will have been held for 11 months—-22.11.2011 Two leading investigative journalists go on trial todayThe trial of investigative journalists Ahmet Sik and Nedim Sener on a charge of participating in ananti-government conspiracy opens today in Istanbul. Oda TV news website owner Soner Yalçinand eight of his journalists – news editor Baris Terkoglu, managing editor Baris Pehlivan, newscoordinator Dogan Yurdakul and reporters Müyesser Yildiz, Coskun Musluk, Sait Cakir and YalçinKüçük – are also being tried with them.Reporters Without Borders has travelled to Istanbul to attend the first hearing as part of aninternational delegation that includes representatives of the European Parliament, the EuropeanFederation of Journalists, the International Press Institute, and the European Journalists’ Association, invited by Turkey’s “Freedom for Journalists” coalition (GÖP).“We are here as a reminder of the attention we are paying to this trial,” the head of the ReportersWithout Borders Europe Desk, Johann Bihr, said shortly before it got under way in the Istanbuldistrict of Caglayan. “We have already come to Istanbul twice this year to express our concernabout the wave of arrests of journalists and our solidarity with them. But no positive step hasbeen taken despite the unprecedented protests in Turkey and aboard. Instead the arrests haveresumed and now we are angry.“Ahmet Sik, Nedim Sener and their eight colleagues have been held for the past month althoughthere is no evidence against them. Ragip Zarakolu, a leading publisher and independentjournalists has been held for the past three and a half weeks despite his age and health. Otherjournalists such as Tuncay Özkan, Baris Açikel and Vedat Kursun have been held for years.Some of them are still awaiting trial. This is intolerable.“As for the 10 journalists on trial today, the prosecutors had promised to produce hard evidenceto justify their pre-trial detention. Where is it? Contrary to what was always claimed, the caseagainst them is based on their work as journalists. They are being tried for criticizing the conductof the trial of the alleged ‘Ergenekon’ conspirators, and for questioning the judicial system’simpartiality.
