Should you buy the only FTSE 100 stock to rise in the 2020 market crash?

first_img Stock markets have suffered a heavy blow over the last few months. The Covid-19 pandemic has ripped through the global economy. The virus continues to disrupt supply chains and weaken consumer demand. In the midst of this turmoil, online grocery retailers have experienced an explosion in demand for home delivery services. This comes as a result of more people staying inside and ordering deliveries to their homes during the pandemic.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…Innovative online shoppingOne company supplying this service is Ocado (LSE: OCDO). Describing itself as “the world’s largest dedicated online grocery retailer”, the supermarket has no physical stores. On top of this, all home deliveries are completed from its state-of-the-art warehouses.Investors should recognise the potential for a long-term change in shopping habits as a result of the virus. As more people use the online home delivery services that are available, more people may see the attractiveness of such a service.Ocado is well set to benefit from any such changes. The company has cemented its position as a leading global provider of technology for internet-based grocery shopping. Its focus on warehouse robotics and home-delivery technology is an attractive prospect for continued growth in the future.Strong financial performanceIn a recent trading statement, the company reported growth in retail revenue of 10.3%. Additionally, the company experienced a 10.2% increase in average orders per week over 2019.The report highlighted that however the coronavirus unfolds, the fundamentals at Ocado are strong. A double-digit increase in customer orders helps illustrate this and underscores the profitability of the business model.Considering the fact that people still need to eat, it is to see why Ocado is the only company in the FTSE 100 index to rise this year. Last week’s gain of around 9%, against a slump of more than 30% for the index, can be attributed to recognition that the company is set to benefit from increasing demand for home deliveries. That said, the share price has taken a hit over the last few days.The future of grocery shopping?Regardless of the lasting impact of Covid-19 on shopping habits, I believe Ocado’s business strategy is set to prosper in the future. With 95% of deliveries arriving on time and 99% of orders accurate, Ocado’s model is highly efficient and provides a promising platform for growth.Arguably, the company is transforming grocery shopping. More and more customers are flocking to take advantage of Ocado’s services, especially in light of current circumstances. The retention of these customers provides further scope to expand operations and build up a strong consumer base.For me, the recent gain against the backdrop of a wider decrease in the index is not the primary reason investors should consider shares in Ocado. With a multitude of opportunities to grow and scale the business, I believe the company has the prospect of harnessing technology in order to change the future of grocery shopping and reward investors in the process.

England move pre-season training to Leeds

first_img England in trainingEngland will move their pre-tournament training base ahead of the RBS 6 Nations to Leeds.They will use facilities around the North Leeds area, including West Park Leeds RUFC – a Level 8 Yorkshire Division Two club – and weights facilities at the Leeds Rugby Academy at Kirkstall during their January 23-27 camp as they prepare to defend their RBS 6 Nations title. The area has recently hosted the England Under-17 and Under-18 squads.England have spent their January training week in Portugal for the last three years and while they will still be based at Pennyhill, Surrey, during Test weeks, Head Coach Stuart Lancaster explained the change of venue for this particular five days. DUNEDIN, NEW ZEALAND – SEPTEMBER 05: James Haskell of England (C) watches as his teammate tackle during an England IRB Rugby World Cup 2011 training session at Carisbrook on September 5, 2011 in Dunedin, New Zealand. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “There are a variety of reasons we wanted to use a different venue centred around wanting to keep the camp in this country,” said Lancaster. “The main objectives of the camp are to spend some time together, building the team, reviewing the World Cup but more importantly working together on setting our goals for the Six Nations and beyond and getting on the same page with our rugby game plan. “By keeping it in England we can create a “new” feel to the camp, in what is a new start. It will allow us to train in conditions that we will be facing up at Murrayfield, create opportunities for the team to stay connected with the public, and allow us to invite in one or two people from outside of rugby to help us shape our future.“All the players have come through grassroots rugby and, with excellent facilities at West Park Leeds and the availability of local facilities and provision for poor weather options, Leeds was the best fit when we considered all the options. Hopefully it will also give a boost to rugby in the North and help in developing the game in the area.”last_img read more

Kurtley Beale back from the dead, then commentator swears

first_imgMonday Jul 25, 2011 Kurtley Beale back from the dead, then commentator swears Possibly the most naturally gifted fullback in world rugby today, Wallaby Kurtley Beale showed how lethal he is with ball in hand again on the weekend. He also did a BOD. Oh, and a commentator swore on air right after that. What does Kurtley Beale have in common with Brian O’Driscoll ? Not a helluva lot probably. Those of you who watched Saturday’s Tri Nations game, and watched the Magners League Grand Final two months ago, will probably have made the connection though. O’Driscoll showed his typical never say die attitude in that match, as he was getting treatment for an injury when he popped up to make a tackle . Beale did the same thing against South Africa, which immediately brought back memories of that great BOD moment. In this case, Beale almost set up a great try after rejoining the action, but it was called back as the Wallabies got close to the tryline. Gio Aplon’s collision with Beale didn’t look too bad at first, especially when you saw him hop up and streak down field, but the fullback was actually cut quite badly, so got strapped up after. In fact of all the Wallaby players, Beale is in the worst shape following the match, having had four stitches and a twisted ankle. On top of that, he now has his arm in a sling too. The game-breaker will apparently be fine to play against the All Blacks in two weeks time though. It was a classic moment in the match, and if that wasn’t enough to entertain you, commentator Greg Martin then slipped up by swearing on air. Great stuff.

Highbury Grove / RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN

first_imgPhotographs:  Tom BlachfordSave this picture!© Tom BlachfordText description provided by the architects. Highbury Grove is defined by a street frontage of uniform federation style cottages set in orthogonal rows and folded in amongst leafy suburban gardens. The project was required to deal with the heritage street frontage and a lane way to the northern side of the property. The project responds by creating an architectural envelope that orientates to the north whilst providing privacy to the public laneway.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordThe original character and detailed heritage front is expressed as a singular white silhouette. Spotted gum floors replaced a decaying timber flooring structure, whilst neglected fireplaces, previously stripped of their ornamentation are cleaned up and new hearths are placed at their feet.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tom BlachfordSave this picture!West-East SectionThe connection between the heritage architecture and the new addition is expressed as a singular moment cast in shadow. The user is squeezed into close contact with the concrete walls, causing a shortness of breath before a step up into a large hollow volume of open air and light. A catharsis for the senses.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordSpace is loosely defined by a series of perpendicular heavy-set concrete block work walls. The first, a set of walls running the length of the site sit below a second set that align themselves to the northern aspect. Resting upon one another the concrete walls overlap and enclose the architectural space within. The apertures between the walls create framed views outwards towards neighbouring trees or to a courtyard garden of swamp banksia and Australian tree ferns.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordSpotted gum joinery and pivot doors insert themselves in amongst the uniform concrete block work walls. The strong fiddle-back grain of the eucalyptus panels creates a series of figures that cascade themselves across the joinery. Each panel presenting itself as photographic slide that when combined morphs into a cinematic expression of a larger figurative movement.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordA burnished concrete slab provides the foundation for this masonry composition to rest upon the earth. The athletic expression of steel lintels to the underside and tops of walls allow the user to read the tectonics and dynamism of the space. The project contrasts the medium of light and air against the heaviness of the concrete walls. The overlapping of the walls creates a loosely defined volume, holding air momentarily at any given time. Light dances across a broad spectrum of surfaces, creating an expansive movement through space.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordProject gallerySee allShow lessTianjin Binhai Cultural Center / gmp ArchitectsSelected ProjectsXuhui Runway Park / SasakiSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904210/highbury-grove-ritz-and-ghougassian Clipboard CopyHouses, Adaptive Reuse•Australia “COPY” Architects: RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN Area Area of this architecture project 2017 Australia Save this picture!© Tom Blachford+ 22Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Houses Highbury Grove / RITZ&GHOUGASSIANSave this projectSaveHighbury Grove / RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN CopyAbout this officeRITZ&GHOUGASSIANOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentAdaptive reuseAustraliaPublished on October 22, 2018Cite: “Highbury Grove / RITZ&GHOUGASSIAN ” 22 Oct 2018.

Philly area protests proliferate

first_imgIn the second week since the election of Donald Trump, protests have continued in Philadelphia and surrounding counties. On Nov. 16, over 200 demonstrators disrupted rush-hour traffic as they marched through Center City streets, often going against the flow.The action started at central police headquarters with a rally denouncing the Fraternal Order of Police for endorsing Trump. A key demand was to abolish the police. Speakers condemned Trump’s racism and bigotry and the ongoing epidemic of police brutality that both major party candidates failed to address. The protest ended at Rittenhouse Square, surrounded by multimillionaire condominiums. Four arrests resulted when police tried to block demonstrators from leaving the area.During the week, walkouts took place at several area colleges. Dozens of students from Haverford and Bryn Mawr marched on police headquarters in Ardmore, Pa., where they were confronted by police officers and other Trump supporters. Students called for an end to racist profiling and for the local police to withdraw from the FOP.Hundreds of students at Swarthmore College walked out of classes on Nov. 16, joining students at campuses around the U.S. calling for their schools to become sanctuaries for undocumented students, who are in danger of arrest and ­deportation.Swarthmore President Valerie Smith joined the students and issued a statement that read in part, “By initiating this petition, our community members are exercising their rights and power to raise their voices for social justice — a time-honored goal and tradition at Swarthmore.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Anti-cop, anti-Trump protesters flood streets of Philadelphia, Nov. 16.

Students on and off campus reflect on their time in quarantine

(Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) Linkedin Facebook + posts Cole DeLuca Cole DeLucahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cole-deluca/ printTCU’s quarantine policy for students who are exposed to COVID-19 is the same for students living on and off campus, but their experiences with isolating are different. According to the TCU Connected Campus website, TCU requires students to get tested and quarantine for 14 days if they are exposed to COVID-19, regardless of whether they show any symptoms. Quarantined students must primarily stay within their rooms and temporarily take their in-person courses online.For on- and off-campus students, quarantining came with different experiences, with some being easier than others. Savannah Glenn, a junior business marketing major, said “being off-campus definitely made it easier to deal with as far as getting food and groceries and having your own space.” Jeff Stuart, a junior strategic communication major, said living off campus “has made quarantine a lot easier.”“They were very helpful in giving me ways to stay safe, [but] TCU didn’t monitor me since I live off campus,” Stuart said.Read more: Officials hopeful after COVID-19 cases drop Madi Alger, a first-year student who lives on-campus, had a different experience while in quarantine.“I think being on-campus made it harder because I had to share a bathroom and can’t get food delivered to my dorm,” she said.Alger said her roommate had to bring her food and she used the bathroom used by all the residents on her floor. Some students also had to adjust to the temporary move to online classes.  Haley Atkins, a first-year student who lives on campus, said it was hard to hear some of her professors who weren’t standing close enough to the microphone. When asked how they felt about TCU making them quarantine for 14 days, both on and off-campus students said they understood why it was necessary.“I’m happy that TCU made me quarantine because it reassures me that TCU is taking the pandemic seriously,” said Alger.TCU will continue to ask both on and off-campus students who have been exposed to COVID-19 to quarantine.center_img ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Tarrant County Elections said results will not be delayed on election night TCU extends bus route and hours for Election Day Cole DeLucahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/cole-deluca/ Linkedin Facebook What we’re reading: Hurricane Delta could be updated to Category 4, Texas governor hints at bars reopening Previous articleThe faces behind Mask Up TCUNext articleNew ‘landing zones’ give TCU students a place to work Cole DeLuca RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

US Army releases Reuters cameraman after holding him for eight months

first_img Receive email alerts News IraqMiddle East – North Africa Organisation ————————————————————————–16.01.2006 – US military frees two Iraqi journalists after holding them for several monthsReporters Without Borders voiced relief today at the release yesterday of Majeed Hameed, a correspondent for the pan-Arab TV station Al-Arabiya, and Reuters cameraman Ali Omar Al Mashadani, who had been held by the US military for several months in the Camp Bucca detention centre.“We call on the US army to show more discernment and restraint in future in order to avoid arresting and holding journalists in an arbitrary manner,” the press freedom organisation said.“We reiterate our call for the release of two other imprisoned journalists, Abdel Amir Younes Hussein and Samer Mohamed Noor,” Reporters Without Borders added. “The US military should quickly produce evidence to support their allegations against these journalists or free them at once.”Mashadani was arrested after a search of his home during a routine sweep through his neighbourhood on 8 August. Hameed was arrested by US troops at the funeral of one of his relatives in Ramadi, north of Baghdad, on 15 September. Both were held all this time without any charges being brought against them. Repeated requests by their employers for information about the reasons for their arrests were never answered. Requests by lawyers, families and employers to visit the detainees were denied.Hussein and Noor are two other journalists working for international news media who have been held for several months without any grounds being given. Hussein, a CBS News cameraman, was arrested on 5 April. Noor, who works for Reuters, was arrested on 4 June. Both are still in Camp Bucca.Unidentified gunmen meanwhile attacked and killed Louai Salam Radeef, a cameraman with the satellite TV station Al-Baghdadia, on 12 January in Alshoola, north of Baghdad. They also injured his assistant, Amer Mohammed. Radeef was the 77th journalist to be killed in Iraq since the start of the war in March 2003.No group has yet claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of US freelance journalist Jill Carroll, who works for the Christian Science Monitor. Carroll was abducted on 7 January in the west Baghdad neighbourhood of Adel, while her Iraqi interpreter, Allan Enwlyah, was killed. A total of 35 journalists have been kidnapped in Iraq since the start of the war.Phil Sands, a British reporter for the Dubai-based, English-language newspaper Emirates Today, was kidnapped on 26 December and was freed by chance during a US army operation five days later without anyone ever noticing his absence. A US central command spokesman, Capt. Eric Clarke, told the press: “It was an amazing case. No-one ever knew Sands was missing.” Reporters Without Borders voiced relief at the release on 21 January 2006 of Samer Mohammed Noor, a cameraman working for British news agency Reuters, who has been held by the US Army in Iraq since 5 June 2005.

His brother, who was arrested at the same time, was released shortly afterwards.He reported that Iraqi soldiers had beaten the cameraman until he lost consciousness. He was then handed over to the US Army and was first held at Abu Ghraib prison before being transferred to Camp Bucca, near Basra.”We are relieved at the release of Samer Mohammed Noor but we do not understand the reasons for keeping him in detention for more than eight months, particularly since there was no concrete evidence against him”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“The American forces should provide an explanation for this and if they have made a mistake they should apologise to the cameraman, his family and the media which employs him”.Reporters Without Borders added that it was also repeating its appeal for the release of a journalist working for CBS News, Abdel Amir Younes Hussein, who has been held without trial for more than ten months.Hussein, a cameraman for CBS News is still being held at Camp Bucca prison. The US Army arrested him in Mosul on 5 April 2005 and he was at first held at Abu Graib before being transferred on 7 July to Camp Bucca. CBS News has several times condemned the continued detention of its cameraman and the legal confusion surrounding the case. The US military authorities have produced none of the evidence that they say they have against him. He has been denied access to a lawyer and refused visits from his family or employer.
