“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Share markets across the globe have tanked again on Tuesday. Markets continue to have little belief in lawmakers’ efforts to stem the Covid-19 crisis and to stimulate the global economy.Regardless of the material impact of the outbreak on their operations, stocks of all colours have taken an almighty bashing. This is also regardless of whether the long-term outlook of said shares remains favourable or not. As a result, plenty of equities look quite oversold. And this provides an opportunity for eagle-eyed investors to nip in and grab a bargain.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…One such stock I think merits serious attention today is B&M European Value Retail (LSE: BME).Essential goodsThis business does a blinding trade off a wide selection of basics and essential goods that can be found across the home. Whether it be food and drink, health and beauty products, kitchenware, clothing or cleaning products, B&M’s lines remain popular, irrespective of broader social, political and economic conditions.In fact, demand for many of the FTSE 250 retailer’s lines have ripped higher following the coronavirus outbreak. It’s witnessing the same frantic emptying of its shelves that many major supermarkets have reported as Britons hurriedly stockpile. A message on B&M’s website illustrates just how strong demand for its soaps, disinfectants and foods have been in recent days.In a message in which it urges “shoppers to be sensible in the quantities they buy,” it says that it has “been prioritising essential goods such as [those in the] Grocery, Household and Personal Care departments.”B&M seems to be succeeding in meeting these elevated levels of demand too. And it remains confident that it should continue to do so as its suppliers ramp up production.Growth starIts wide selection of non-discretionary products is one reason why B&M is such an exceptional defensive selection in these difficult times. Its broad catalogue of trusted, popular brands, from Heinz baked beans and Oral-B toothpaste to Andrex toilet rolls and Tetley tea bags, provides an extra layer of security too.The retailer has another powerful weapon in its arsenal. As its name suggests, B&M European Value Retail operates at lower price points. It’s a characteristic that could stand it in good stead if (as is expected) the UK economy sinks because of the coronavirus, and an increasing number of cash-strapped Britons try to stretch their shopping budgets that bit further.B&M’s share price has dropped 30% during the past month as investor panic has hit fever pitch. Consequently the company now trades on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of 11.4 times. Such a low rating fails to reflect its obvious safe-haven qualities, in my opinion.City analysts expect earnings to rise 17% in the upcoming fiscal year (to March 2021), despite the worsening coronavirus crisis. And the retailer’s longer-term earnings outlook remains robust thanks to its rapid expansion scheme.

Collapse Expand TAGS: Georgia Get to know Georgia’s Beka Gorgadze The No 8 is fast becoming a crucial… Pivac – “Pre-lockdown you saw where we were heading, post-lockdown you haven’t seen it” pic.twitter.com/Bsu2VtOShF— Russ Petty (@rpetty80) November 16, 2020Of course, to implement that attacking game, they need decent first-phase ball, which was sorely lacking in Dublin as Wales were exposed at scrum time.Wales’ front row for this game – Wyn Jones, Elliot Dee and Samson Lee – have 100 caps between and will be looking to avoid the severe test a young Welsh pack underwent when the two sides last met on Welsh soil. That was in November 2017 and Wales were put under a lot of pressure by Georgia, the hosts holding on for a narrow and unconvincing 13-6 victory.Tight tussle: Wales beat Georgia 13-6 in 2017 (Getty Images)A tight result like that in Llanelli would be a welcome change for Georgia. They have already leaked 40 points to each of Scotland and England this autumn, with their renowned scrum not yet living up to the hype.Georgia have been calling for more opportunities to face top-tier nations and while these experiences are sure to help them going forward, the results make pretty grim reading right now. They will be hoping it’s short-term pain for long-term gain.What’s the big team news?Wayne Pivac has made wholesale changes to the Wales team, with Liam Williams and Justin Tipuric the only players who lined up against Ireland to also start against Georgia.There are three new caps in the starting XV – Johnny William, Kieran Hardy and James Botham (grandson of cricketing great Ian) – as well as another on the bench in Ioan Lloyd. Callum Sheedy makes his first start at fly-half, as does Louis Rees-Zammit on the wing.After the 40-0 defeat by England, Georgia coach Levan Maisashvili has made five changes to the team to play Wales. Sandro Todua and Vasil Lobzhanidze come into the back-line while Jaba Bregvadze, Konstantine Mikautadze and Otar Giorgadze start in the pack.MORE ON THE AUTUMN NATIONS CUP Autumn Nations Cup Fixtures 2020 What have the coaches said?Wales coach Wayne Pivac: “Saturday is a huge opportunity for the players and for us as a squad looking ahead to the future and to RWC 2023. We have said all along that the Autumn Nations Cup is a great platform for us to give opportunities to players, to build depth and experience.” Autumn Nations Cup Fixtures 2020 The Autumn Nations… All you need to know about the Group A match at Parc y Scarlets Autumn Nations Cup Wales v Georgia PreviewOnly 14 months have passed since Wales and Georgia last played each other, but much has changed in that time.Both sides now have new coaches – Wayne Pivac taking over from Warren Gatland in the Wales set-up and Levan Maisashvili succeeding Milton Haig with the Lelos – and there are new faces on the field too.Only a third of the Wales starting XV that beat Georgia 43-14 at last year’s World Cup will also line up at Parc y Scarlets for kick-off on Saturday evening as Pivac looks to use the Autumn Nations Cup to build the depth of his squad for France 2023, while less than half of Georgia’s starters from that 2019 match will play this weekend.And while that victory set Wales on the road to the semi-finals in Japan, more recently they have lost six straight matches – their worst run since 2012-13. Pivac is banking on an exciting, if inexperienced back-line, to bring that losing streak to an end this weekend.One of the more damning statistics from last week’s defeat is that they were in Ireland’s 22 on six occasions and failed to come away with points from any of them, so he is looking to the likes of Callum Sheedy, Nick Tompkins and Louis Rees-Zammit to be clinical in attack against a Georgian team that has suffered heavy defeats by Scotland and England in recent weeks.Earlier in the year, there were glimpses of the creativity Pivac is known for – and that was so evident during his time at the Scarlets – but not so much in the latter part of 2020. Scarlets centre Johnny Williams Get to know Georgia’s Beka Gorgadze Georgia coach Levan Maisashvili: “Game management still remains our main issue, which is logical against such strong opposition as England. If we had made correct decisions, we would have scored points as we had one or two good moments during the game. But we failed to grab that moment.“I expect Wales to be more diverse in their attacks than they usually are. We should not let ourselves be misguided by their latest results. They have way more options in attack compared to England and we should expect more surprises in static phases, so we have to think more about defence too.” Over the line: Liam Williams scores against Georgia at RWC 2019 (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Autumn Nations Cup Fixtures 2020 Scarlets centre Johnny Williams Expand Get to know the powerful new addition to… Preparations underway for @autumnnations cup 2020 round two match against #Wales უელსი v საქართველო | 21 ნოემბერი | 21:15 (GMT+4)Cyrchfan: Llanelli.

The site had sweeping views towards the east and was steeply contoured and required good use of levels to negotiate the ground while maximising the view towards the east.Save this picture!© Ariel HuberThe design looked at creating exterior open spaces between these three individual villas at the same time maximising their views out towards the east. The program was abstracted into two individual villas having two bedrooms each with the main shared facilities in between. There was a level added at the upper level that completed the younger brother’s house with a large Music room attached to it. The guest rooms were tucked below one villa with the services and parking under the other villa.Save this picture!SectionThe house uses the black basalt stone of the Western Ghats to create a visually stronger and solid base and exposed concrete walls to emphasize the main villa spaces.

SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleMidday UpdateNext articleClosing Comments Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter In a significant victory for the agricultural and business sectors on Friday, a federal appellate court suspended nationwide implementation of the “Waters of the United States” rule until further order of the court. Since the EPA implemented the rule back in August, several district courts have stopped its implementation in parts of the country. Friday’s court ruling nullifies enforcement of the regulation nationwide. “This is a huge victory for farmers,” said NPPC President Dr. Ron Prestage, a veterinarian and pork producer from Camden, SC. “The court rightfully stopped implementation of this massive federal land grab and confusion across the country until the numerous lawsuits against it can be resolved.”Court Issues Nationwide Stay on WOTUS RuleChief Environmental Counsel with the NPPC, Michael Fromica, said part of the court’s decision was based on the likelihood that the rule will eventually be struck down completely, “The court felt that in the end the EPA rule did not comply with what the US Supreme Court has previously ruled.” He added, in reaching its decision, the court found that there’s a substantial likelihood that EPA’s WOTUS rule fails to comply with the Supreme Court’s instructions in previous Clean Water Act cases and that the agency’s actions in the rulemaking process, to which NPPC objected at the outset, are “suspect.” The rule, which took effect August 28, was proposed in April 2014 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clarify the agencies’ authority under the Clean Water Act over various waters. That jurisdiction – based on several U.S. Supreme Court decisions – had included “navigable” waters and waters with a significant hydrologic connection to navigable waters. The WOTUS regulation broadened that to include, among other water bodies, upstream waters and intermittent and ephemeral streams such as the kind farmers use for drainage and irrigation. It also encompasses lands adjacent to such waters. The court also ruled that, not only was the rule itself based on bad science, the process used to establish the rule was also corrupt. “The WOTUS rule is vague and fails to let regulated parties know when their conduct violates the law,” Prestage said. “We all want clean water, but this regulation is just big land grab that promotes growth in the size of government and allows activists to extort and micromanage all kinds of farming and business activities.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Court Issues Nationwide Stay on WOTUS Rule (updated) By Gary Truitt – Oct 9, 2015 “The judges expressed deep concerns over the basic legality of this rule. We’re not in the least surprised: This is the worst EPA order we have seen since the agency was established more than 40 years ago. The court clearly understood our arguments,” stated Bob Stallman, President of AFBF. Chip Bowling, president of the National Corn Growers said, “Clean water is important to us all. NCGA is committed to working with these agencies and other stakeholders to protect America’s water resources.” Court Issues Nationwide Stay on WOTUS Rule (updated) (Click here to read the court’s decision.)

Twitter By admin – February 25, 2018 GEEK: Persistent popup windows may indicate several updates are needed Local NewsBusiness Facebook Pinterest Twitter Facebook Pinterest>> Jeff Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. Q: For the past 8 or 10 days, I’ve been getting a popup in the lower right of the screen which tells me there is a Windows update and I should click on either “restart now,” or “remind me tomorrow.” I first clicked on “restart now”. I later received another popup that said the system was busy when I tried the update so it could not take action. The next time I first made sure nothing was running and then did the restart with the same result. I am now clicking on “remind me tomorrow” when it appears. In addition, two more options have appeared in the “Start” menu, they are: “Update and shutdown” and “Update and restart”. Any ideas? I don’t know how to capture the popups because they go away pretty quickly.– Don K.Shalimar, FloridaA: The first thing that comes to mind, Don, is to wonder if you’re dealing with more than one update. If the system needs to be restarted, it generally occurs after an update takes place – not before. I discussed the reason for this at length in a recent column. The short version is that certain files that need to be updated are locked open by the operating system while it is running, and the only way to access them is to do so either while the system is shutting down, or before the boot process progresses to the point where the files are once again locked.Now, having said all that, one important thing to know is that not all updates require a restart. Those that do require one cause the behavior you described. So, the reason that I mention all of the above is so you understand that Windows is asking you to either restart now, or be reminded later, because it has an update to perform (possibly more than one) that it knows is going to require a restart.So, you said you clicked “Restart Now” but you didn’t say whether the system actually restarted. When it says “Now” it means exactly that. So, if you continued working, or if the system did not immediately go into shutdown mode, something else was happening on the system that prevented the system from shutting down as planned. This can happen when certain high-priority processes are running, or for something as mundane as a program such as Microsoft Word prompting whether you want to save your current file before exiting. If such a dialog is left on the screen, there is a good possibility that Windows won’t shut down, because it is actually attempting to prevent you from losing your work. If this happened, or if something else prevented Windows from shutting down, you would indeed get a message that the system was busy when it tried.So, you went on to say that you did the restart, and got the same result. Again, I would question whether you’re certain you’re dealing with a single update and not several; each of which requires a restart (this is a rarity, but it does happen).Have you tried either or both of the other options that you mentioned that appeared in your menu? Their presence confirms that the update(s) in question cannot be performed while the system is running, and must be systematically applied during a reboot.Of course, it is always possible that this is not multiple updates, and instead is a single update that keeps failing each time you try to install it. This happens occasionally (Thanks, Bill!). Such updates may require elevated privileges to successfully install, or require a file path that’s not available on your machine due to a vendor-specific Windows installation. If one of these situations is indeed happening, you can get more information by going into Windows Updates and looking at the Update History. You get there by clicking Start->Settings, then select “Update & Security” and then “Advanced options” and “View your update history”. The list contains all the successful and failed attempts at performing updates, and should give you more information on why a given update failed.As for capturing the failure dialogs, you only need to be quick enough to hit a single key in order to capture them. I covered methods of grabbing the contents of the screen in Issue #503 and Issue #540, both of which can be found in the column archives over on ItsGeekToMe.co.To view additional content, comment on articles, or submit a question of your own, visit my website at ItsGeekToMe.co (not .com!)

One student questioned the wisdom of dispelling large numbers of very drunk students onto the streets. Kirsty Borthwick, Welfare Officer elect for Regent’s Park told Cherwell, “The organisers of such events do of course have the right to ask people to leave promptly at the end of the night, but they do also have a responsibility to their guests. Recent reports of attacks in the Cowley/Iffley area beg the question as to why guests, and in particular female students, were allowed to stagger away from the event, in the dark, drunk and vulnerable.”The Crown Committee stated, “As after every event, we will be reviewing the format for next year. Â If we feel that the open bar format is no longer suitable, we will change it.”One student confirmed that nights involving unlimited alcohol result in some having a less than ideal evening. The attendee admitted, “I feel the cocktails defeated me: in future perhaps I should add the word “moderation” to my dictionary. It was absolute carnage. Apparently I was staggering around knocking into people and blowing a whistle at them. I then proceeded to lose all my belongings including my phone and ID, before falling into the paddling pool.”The struggling party goer then added, Â “The following day I was so hungover I could barely see.”Â Some attendees claimed there were girls passed out beneath the scoreboard on the rugby pitch who were not found for a few hours.Celia Smith, the Female Welfare Officer at Hertford College, expressed her opinion that, “I’d say unlimited booze seems to lead to excessive drinking (many people simply getting value for money, if nothing else) so in practice it is a dangerous thing to allow. However, students should be taking responsibility for their own alcohol intake; I am less concerned by the provision of unlimited amounts of substance rather than the fact that lots of us often don’t exercise self-discipline over it.”The person for whom one of the ambulances was called reinforced Smith’s statement. They said, “The event was attended by adults who are responsible for the amount of alcohol they consume. At the ended of the day it is up to each individual to know their own limits.” The “Captain’s Cocktails” event, themed “Emergency Services”, required assistance from the real deal when an ambulance had to be called to the venue last Saturday.Â On the 19th the Oxford University Rugby Club hosted Captain’s Cocktails at the Iffley Sports Ground. The occasion ran from 6 — 11pm and promised unlimited cocktails for the night. Tickets were Â£10 in advance, or Â£15 on the door, and were distributed through colleges by various reps in the week preceding the event. Its Facebook event page advertised that there would be Â£5,000 of alcohol on the night.Â One attendee, who preferred not to be named, stated, “I was the person who had to use the emergency services on Saturday night but the incident wasn’t really alcohol related. I tripped off the curb and split my chin open; it was a result of my stupidity and a general lapse in concentration rather than being intoxicated.”A student from his college who wished to remain anonymous disputed this fact saying, “He seemed pretty wasted. It’s a big coincidence if, when you’re that drunk, your “trip and fall” (requiring an ambulance and numerous stitches) has nothing to do with the alcohol coursing through your veins.”Â The Crown Committee, who organised the event confirmed, “this year one ambulance was called to attend to a single individual who drank slightly too much.”Â They defended themselves, saying, “It is an open bar format, but in no way do we promote it as an “unlimited” drinking event, and the overwhelming majority of people attending are responsible in their intake of alcohol. In addition, we have put in place all the precautions necessary to ensure that the evening is safe and secure for all attendees.
