Year to date, the Lloyds share price is up 33%. Over 12 months, the stock is up 51%.I already own some Lloyds shares so I’m pleased that the share price is rising. Should I buy more though? Let’s examine the outlook for Lloyds shares from here.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…Lloyds share price: I see further upsideThe short-term set-up for Lloyds shares is quite attractive, in my view.For starters, the UK economy looks set for strong growth this year. Last month, the Bank of England raised its forecast for British economic growth to 7.25% for 2021, up from February’s estimate of 5%. This growth should provide a nice backdrop for Lloyds – its fortunes are closely linked to the health of the UK economy.Secondly, analysts are upgrading their earnings forecasts for the stock. Over the last three months, the consensus earnings per share estimate for 2021 has risen from around 4.1p to 5.9p. Analysts are also raising their price targets for Lloyds. Last week, both Barclays and JP Morgan lifted their targets. Barclays went from 55p to 60p while JP Morgan went from 54p to 59p. This kind of upgrade activity can boost a stock’s share price.Third, the stock’s valuation is still very low. The current FY21 earnings forecast of 5.9p equates to a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8.2 at the current share price. By contrast, the median forward-looking P/E across the FTSE 100 is 16.7.Finally, Lloyds has said that it intends to resume a “progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend policy” in the near future. Regular dividends could increase the appeal of owning the shares, and push its share price up further.Putting this together, I see plenty of appeal in Lloyds shares right now.Long-term uncertaintyI do still have concerns about the long-term investment case for Lloyds shares, however.My biggest concern is that I think the banking industry is going to see a significant amount of disruption over the next decade due to advances in financial technology (FinTech). Today, FinTech companies such as PayPal, Square, Wise, Revolut, and SoFi are rapidly capturing market share. I suspect that in 10 years’ time, the banking industry will look very different. This adds uncertainty to the investment case.My second concern is that UK interest rates could remain low for years. This could hinder Lloyds’ profitability and put a brake on the rising share price due to the fact that banks are able to generate larger profits when interest rates are higher. We may see UK interest rates rise as the economy continues to recover in the years ahead. However, I think it will be a long time before rates are back at pre-Global Financial Crisis levels of 5%+.Should I buy Lloyds shares now?Weighing everything up, I’m not going to buy more Lloyds shares for my portfolio for now. I will continue to hold the shares I have because I think the price has further to climb.However, I will be investing new capital in other stocks that have more growth potential in the long run.

The house is made up of 2 volumes, a day blockand a night block. The day block is a U-shaped volume set on a plateau at the top of the outcrop. It houses the shared living spaces, including the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and a reading nook, which is tucked behind the fireplace. The facades on the outside of this U-shape are clad in natural stone and pierced by openings that frame prime views. Floor to ceiling windows line the inside of the U and define a sheltered inner courtyard.Save this picture!© James BrittainRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0WoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensThe night block, which includes the master bedroom, consists of a 2-storey stone block that extends over the slope. Here, too, openings have been oriented and sized as a function of the vistas and the sun’s path. A generous window wraps around the southeast corner, for instance, to afford a stunning diagonal view over the woods.Save this picture!© James BrittainThese 2 volumes are connected by a veranda and a fully glazed passageway. A large roof with an exposed timber frame of Douglas fir covers the entire house. Inside, the sense of a single volume is reinforced by the open space beneath the ceiling, with no partition extending to full height. Rooms that require privacy, like the bathroom in the day block, are capped by low ceilings that set them off as cubes within the space. The bathroom wall, which faces the inner courtyard, is a pivoting screen of frosted glass and steel. This feature ensures the optimal use of natural light and reinforces the notion of a fluid relationship between the spaces.Save this picture!© James BrittainThe inside/outside boundary is blurred in various ways. Openings allow sight lines that cross through the building. Structural elements like the wood roof, stone walls and galvanized steel columns pass unchanged from the interior to the exterior. Large sliding glass panels ensure an easy flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. Depending on conditions, one can even move from one area of the house to another via the outdoors. Outdoor spaces are also embraced by the design of the house, creating the impression of an outdoor room.Save this picture!© James BrittainThe inner courtyard, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and cloister-like colonnade of steel posts, serves as an outdoor room in summer. On 3 sides, glazed walls open to make the courtyard an extension of the living areas. A wooden terrace is laid out in this space, while the forest around the home has been left in its natural state.Save this picture!© James BrittainThe veranda is the space between the day blockand the night block. It is protected by the roof, which bridges the two sections. Its sheltered dining area provides a beautiful view of the woods and is oriented east to benefit from the morning sun. The veranda has a glazed corridor that creates a feeling of being outdoors, even in winter, when going from the day block to the night block. Awareness of the natural environment is always a part of life inside this home.Save this picture!© James BrittainWindow and door openings are positioned and sized as a function of the viewer’s position and the landscape elements they frame. Because the house turns in on itself, several sight lines cross through the structure, looking inward at other areas of the home and outside at the same time. The building uses materials and construction methods that could be considered traditional or rustic, such as natural stone walls, a timber frame and a sloping standing seam roof.Save this picture!© James BrittainThe form of the house, however, is unique, determined by the terrain and the desired relationship among the various functions of the structure. Distinctly modern features include clean lines, the use of large windows placed for optimal views and sun exposure (not according to classical composition), the open plan and various design details. Indeed, the spare aesthetics, simple and exposed structural components and use of natural and robust materials refer to both traditional building practices and a more modern perspective on design.Save this picture!© James BrittainIn the spirit of this rustic/modern approach, we focused on natural materials in their raw state, exposed and unadorned. The intention was to create a house that would be as solid as the natural environment surrounding it, through the use of elements such as stone, wood beams, steel columns, glass and concrete flooring.Save this picture!© James BrittainDurable materials were chosen for the outside: stone for the walls and steel for the roof and columns—solid materials that stand the test of time. Inside, white, gray and black materials set the tone: bare stone, a concrete floor, glass, a galvanized steel structure and a gray-stained wood ceiling. The rest is white-painted drywall. Throughout, color is brought into the house by nature and its seasonal changes. The building offers a play on contrasts, as large opaque stone walls and generous glass surfaces set the stage for a compelling dialogue between inside and out.Save this picture!PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessMemorial to the Abolition of Slavery / Wodiczko + BonderArticlesCollege of Engineering and Applied Sciences Building for Nanjing University / HDRArticles Share Houseslast_img read more

That means a huge amount to me.“I play once a year usually in my school’s talent show and that’s just for the craic. It’s not to win. It’s always been to show my thoughts on the world.“I’m not trying to be famous. I’m just trying to show my view of the world. The writing of the lyrics is probably the most important part for me but forming it is the next most important thing.”Ava’s gift for songwriting was borne out of singing stories to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in her infant years, although she admitted that when she began writing songs, she did not intend to be the person performing them.That changed when she was in fifth class in primary school, when she was inspired by a friend who “had the best voice that I had ever heard” to learn guitar and, subsequently, add chords to the lyrics she had written.Ava explained that she has gone on to learn several other instruments, saying: “I took up banjolele and ukulele and I started playing with different instruments that are quite small.“I like to have small instruments to make different sounds that I might not have heard before. My mother calls my music ‘toytown pop’ because I use toybox toys to make music.”The YADAs are a creative and educational initiative run by the Young Artists Association of Ireland, a not-for-profit organisation established to provide an industry-safe environment for aspiring young artists.The awards were hosted by RTÉ presenters Stephen Byrne and Diana Bunici, with the judging panel including music producer Ray Traynor, singer/songwriter Oisin Kavanagh  and songwriter Don Mescall.

The bureau said that revenue from financial services debt accounted for nearly 40 percent of debt collection revenue in 2018.The bureau noted that after several years of growth, consumer debt surpassed its 2008 peak in 2017, rising to a new high of $13.54 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2018. However, while mortgage debt increased, the growth in consumer debt was mostly fueled by non-housing debt such as credit cards and auto loans.The report revealed that the CFPB planned to issue a notice of Proposed Rulemaking relating to debt collections this spring. It said that the notice would address issues such as communication practices and consumer disclosures.”The Bureau understands that the debt collection industry, by and large, wants to comply with consumer protection laws,” said Kathy Kraninger, Director of the CFPB, in the report. “However, where there are bad actors who violate the law, we will take enforcement actions to protect consumers.”The report also highlighted some of the lawsuits and amicus curiae briefs filed by the CFPB and Federal Trade Commission to address the debt collection practices in the mortgage industry. They included an amicus brief on the Obduskey vs. McCarthy Holthus case on which the Supreme Court issued a ruling on Wednesday.The amicus briefs also included one on the deficiency judgment in judicial foreclosure in the case of Cohen vs. Ditech Financial LLC. This brie addressed whether “the FDCPA applies to judicial foreclosure proceedings in state court where, under state law, the debt collector is entitled to seek a deficiency judgment against the consumer for the amount of any mortgage debt remaining after the foreclosure sale.”Read the complete report here.

While holding that the present petition has been filed on the basis of presumption and without any proper research, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan noted that the members of the Committee are experts in their subject and field, and there seems to be no arbitrariness or discrimination being done nor is there are any material to show false fabrication of data in question being published. The order has come in a PIL filed by All India Lawyer’s Union seeking a direction to the Delhi Government to publish the data relating to confirmed cases of COVID-19 and deaths occurring on account of the same through a daily bulletin every 24 hours, based on the figures being provided to the Govt. of NCTD by the various hospitals, both public and private. In addition to this, the Petitioner had asked for the scrapping of the Death Audit Committee constituted by the Delhi Government. In support of its arguments, the Petitioner had referred to the number of deaths reported by the hospitals which were higher in number than those reported by the Delhi Government. Calling these allegations baseless, Mr. Rahul Mehra, who was appearing for the Delhi Government submitted that data relating to COVID-19 deaths have to be reported by all Central Government-run hospitals, Delhi Government-run hospitals and Private Hospitals in Delhi in a tabular form. On the basis of this data and also looking at the Guidelines issued by the Central Government, Death Audit Committee is publishing the figure of deaths occurred due to COVID-19. Mr. Mehra further contended that Death Audit Committee has been following the aforesaid guidelines of the Central Government in full letter and spirit and no arbitrariness or discrimination is being done by the respondents while publishing the data in question. In light of these submissions, the court highlighted that the court cannot sit in appeal against the reports published by the Death Audit Committee from time to time. The court, however, remarked the following on the functioning of the Death Audit Committee: ‘We expect from the Death Audit Committee and the respondents that they will publish the data only after proper analysis of the data supplied by the Central Government run hospitals, State Government run hospitals and Private hospitals in Delhi. The data shall be maintained properly by the aforesaid Committee of experts and by the respondent/Government.’Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Construction worker killed by wall collapse in Brooklyn

first_imgShare via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink A retaining wall collapsed at a Brooklyn home. (NYPD via Twitter) A construction worker was killed Monday when a brick wall in the backyard of a Sunset Park home collapsed.The New York City Fire Department responded to 454 42nd Street just after 1 p.m., finding that a 10-foot retention wall in the property’s backyard had fallen on two workers, Gothamist reports. One of the workers was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other was transported to NYU Langone Hospital.It is unclear what kind of construction work, if any, was underway at the property. The Department of Buildings didn’t immediately respond to a request seeking additional information.ADVERTISEMENTThe agency’s website indicates that it received a complaint in 2014 about the property’s owner installing a retaining wall to elevate a flower bed in the backyard without permits. The agency didn’t issue violations, however, noting that the owner, listed in property records as Santiago and Aileen Mayol, didn’t require permits for the work. No other work permits appear to have been filed for the property.In 2018, another worker was killed after a wall collapse on a construction site on Seventh Avenue in Sunset Park. The project’s subcontractor was charged with manslaughter.[Gothamist] — Kathryn Brenzelcenter_img TagsConstruction accidentSunset Parklast_img read more
