The Sirius Minerals share price is up 35%. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! See all posts by Roland Head The Sirius Minerals (LSE: SXX) share price rose by 35% on Wednesday morning, when the Yorkshire-based firm revealed it was in takeover talks with FTSE 100 miner Anglo American.If confirmed, the proposed cash offer of 5.5p per share would represent a 60% premium to the average SXX share price over the last three months. In total, Anglo would be paying about £386m for the shares and the right to develop the Woodsmith mine.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…Management have said that they will support the offer, if it’s confirmed. Under UK takeover rules, Anglo American has until 5 February to make a firm offer or withdraw.Here’s what this week’s news means, and what I think shareholders should do now.A big disappointmentI know that many private investors are sitting on big losses on this stock. The SXX share price hasn’t traded much below 7p since 2010 and reached highs of 45p in 2016.Boss Chris Fraser did a good job of selling the project to the local community. Many people believed that this would be a long-term cash cow, generating valuable employment and dividends for shareholders.If the mine is developed, then it should still make a valuable contribution to the local economy. But the project’s $3bn+ financing requirements were always going to be a challenge, especially after management announced early cost overruns in September 2018.As I’ve discussed here on a number of previous occasions, I couldn’t see how the mine could be financed without outside investors taking ownership of at least part of the project. That seems to be the situation we’re in now.Are management selling too cheap?I’ve seen suggestions on social media that management are selling the business too cheap – or that Anglo’s potential offer of 5.5p is just an opening bid. Unfortunately, I think that’s unlikely to be true.The harsh reality is that without new funding, Sirius could run out of cash by April and be forced into administration. In this situation, the company’s existing lenders would likely to take a leading role in looking for a buyer. Small shareholders would not be able to provide the cash needed to develop the project on, so would get nothing.My personal view is that Anglo’s proposed offer is very fair, given the project’s funding requirements. I’d be very surprised if a higher bidder appears.What should you do now?As I write, SXX shares are trading at about 5.4p, just below Anglo’s proposed 5.5p offer level.If you’re a Sirius shareholder, you could sell now into the market and get most of the proposed bid cash.Alternatively, you could hold on and hope that the takeover is confirmed (or that a better offer emerges). In that case you’d get the full amount in cash without having to pay any dealing charges.Ultimately it’s your choice. I can’t tell you what to do.Unfortunately, Sirius has provided us all with a painful reminder of why it’s important to have a diversified portfolio.Loss-making early-stage businesses like Sirius are always risky and can deliver big losses unexpectedly. In situations like this, I reckon it’s best to only investing money you can afford to lose. The Sirius Minerals share price is up 35%.

I’d invest £2k in these 2 bargain FTSE 100 shares to become an ISA millionaire The FTSE 100’s market crash has caused many high-quality stocks to fall to levels not seen for many years. As such, now could be a great time to snap up a basket of bargain FTSE 100 shares. Buying such a selection of shares could help you obtain a generous passive income in the long run. These investments could also yield substantial capital gains. 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…Bargain FTSE 100 sharesShares in consumer goods giant Unilever (LSE: ULVR) have held up relatively well over the past few weeks. It looks as if the company is going to weather the coronavirus storm quite well. Unilever’s bottom line should be protected as it’s one of the world’s largest producers of consumer goods. Indeed, demand for its food and cleaning products is booming.That suggests the business could generate good returns for investors in the long run. The company has said its dividend is safe for the time being and the stock currently supports a dividend yield of 3.7%. As bargain FTSE 100 shares go, this makes Unilever relatively unique. On top of this, shares in Unilever are trading at a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 18.2, which suggests they offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. As the company has consistently reported earnings growth above 10%, there’s a good chance an investment in this consumer goods giant could produce double-digit returns every year going forward. A 10% per annum return could be enough to turn an initial investment of £20,000 into £1m within 39 years. Asian giant Prudential (LSE: PRU) is also on my list of bargain FTSE 100 shares that could help you build a £1m ISA. While the outlook for the global economy is far from certain at this stage, China is finally returning to normal. That could be good news for Prudential, which gets most of its business from China and Hong Kong. As the Chinese life insurance market is still relatively underdeveloped, Prudential could generate substantial growth in the long run. After recent declines, the stock is currently changing hands at a P/E of 6.8. That multiple suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. Further, the shares also support a dividend yield of 3.4%. This level of income, as well as the company’s growth potential, are not the only reasons why this stock could help you build a million-pound ISA. Management is also evaluating the potential disposal of Prudential’s US business. It’s not possible to tell how much this business could be worth, but some analysts believe a valuation of several billion pounds is acceptable. This isn’t currently reflected in the group’s valuation and suggests the stock is deeply undervalued at current levels. This is why Prudential stands out on my list of bargain FTSE 100 shares. As such, in the long run, it’s highly likely this company can generate high total returns as it capitalises on its position in Asia’s life insurance market. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana celebrates growth, anniversaries

Holguín celebrated and preached during an April 14 Eucharist celebrating the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic’s growth and anniversaries. ENS Photo/Lynette Wilson[Episcopal News Service – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic] La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana celebrated its growth, 116 years of existence and 100 years in the Episcopal Church during an April 14 Eucharist service in Santo Domingo.Bishop Julio C. Holguín celebrated and preached during the three-hour, festive Eucharist that marked the end of a three-day conference, “Juntos Podemos: Encuentro en Misión con Iglepidom,” or “Together we can: Encounter in Mission with the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic.”In his sermon, Holguín talked about the “great commission” and the duty of all the baptized to engage in mission, as well as the responsibility of Episcopalians to share with others what God has done in their lives so that others can believe.Students representing a dozen Episcopal schools attended the April 14 Eucharist in Santo Domingo. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonMore than 2,000 people attended the Eucharist, including some 70 Americans in companion relationships with the diocese, held at a volleyball pavilion in a government sports complex. Hundreds of young people represented about a dozen of the diocese’s 27 schools, complete with drum squads and flag corps.“This is one of the biggest celebrations we have had this year and we’ve been preparing a whole year for this,” said the Rev. Adolfo Moronta, vicar of San Pablo y San Lucas, in San Isidro, where his congregation of 50 to 60 people is beginning the process of building a church. “[It’s important] because throughout this time we have preached the Gospel of Jesus throughout our whole country and our church is growing and growing, and this is a way for us to celebrate what God has been doing in the people of the Dominican Republic.”The diocese has grow by 20 percent in the last 10 years, and in 20 years has decreased its dependency on the Episcopal Church from 84 percent to 18 percent, while increasing its budget five-fold, explained Holguín in an interview with ENS following the service.“The first thing is that we have assumed responsibility and the second is evangelizing; we know that the church needs to expand,” said Holguín, adding that the clergy and the laity have also undergone a spiritual revitalization and “thanks to that, the church has begun to grow.”Specifically, Holguín mentioned the United Thank Offering and the Dominican Development Group, which formed in 1998 to assist the diocese with development and on its path toward self-sustainability. Holguín also acknowledged several “great” missionaries who have worked hard for the church over the years, and the companion diocese relationships that have developed over the years, crediting them with helping the diocese to grow.The diocese has companion relationships with domestic dioceses, including East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Michigan, Western Michigan, Georgia, Nebraska, Northwest Texas, South Carolina, Southwest Florida and Western Louisiana. Most, if not all, were represented at the encounter.“I felt that he [the bishop during his sermon] tied it all together with living the Baptismal Covenant and having that commitment [to mission],” said Rebecca Gibson, of Christ Episcopal Church in Winchester, Virginia. “And he tied it in very nicely with the encounter.”Walt Dark, Joanne Sutton and Mary Smith, members of Transfiguration Episcopal Church in Indian River, Michigan, clapping during a praise and dance presentation at Episcopal Cathedral of the Epiphany in Santo Domingo April 13. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonClose to 200 people participated in the three-day encounter, which included workshops covering everything from vacation Bible school; the Dominican Development Group; construction; health, education and social ministries; microcredit programs; and liturgy and spirituality. The encounter, held at Epiphany Cathedral, also included music, dance and an open dialogue to discuss what the participants had learned in the workshops.“The workshops were to show what we’ve done in 116 years, and what we have done with the support of the American missioners,” said the Rev. P. Vicente Peña, vicar of San Juan Bautista in Bonao, in the country’s center.Since 1991 the number of churches has grown from 24 to more than 70 missions and preaching stations, including 37 church buildings up from 13; the number of schools has increased from seven to 27, according to statistics kept by the Dominican Development Group.“I’ve been coming here for four years as part of a construction team and have never been able to pull together the whole mission of the diocese,” said Bob Hills, a member of Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota, in the Diocese of Southwest Florida. “For the first time I see the whole mission. I’m very impressed by what goes on here and I’m proud to be part of it.”The Episcopal Church of the Dominican Republic is one of seven Province IX dioceses spread across the Caribbean and Central and northern South America, and it is one of the fastest growing dioceses in the Episcopal Church.“It’s a great joy for me to be here and experience this wonderful gathering,” said Bishop Wilfrido Ramos-Orench, the Episcopal Church’s global partnerships officer for Province IX, during the encounter.“I always think that God invites us to be dreamers and dream big. One of my dreams is for each one of our dioceses in Province IX to move toward full development like the Dominican Republic. It is the flagship diocese in our region, and its slowly moving toward self-sufficiency and fullness in Christ.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

For an architect working on their very first built project, the temptation to condense several years’ worth of education into a single is a strong one. Usually, however, such lofty desires are tempered by the realities of the budgetary, geographical and material constraints. Such was the case with Argentinean architect Rosario Talevi’s first project, a house known as Casa Abieta. There was though, an additional parameter here that isn’t something encountered but most architects during their “maiden voyage”: the client was her own mother. What is most striking about the project is the manner in which the parameters in question have not only have shaped but also enhanced ­the final building. The result of conditions leading to convictions, the creativity that comes from such constrictions is playfully evidence by Talevi’s house.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasA project that has been on-going since 2011, Casa Abierta is located not far from La Pedrera, a seaside village in Rocha on the south east coast of Uruguay. Its location is notable in the first instance for its rugged beauty; but this wildness extends beyond the geography, characterising the historical context as well as the budget and nature of the materials and resources available for the project. The house is in the middle of land that was once envisioned as a joint entity of La Pedrera and Punta Rubia, which would form an urban beach resort. The plan, which dates from the 1930s, never materialised but the urban regulations according to which it was conceived do endure. The 34m long x 8.8m wide plot, some 2 kilometres from the nearest neighbour, adheres to these unfinished, “invisible” streets. This density-that-never-was also means that basic infrastructure concerns, such as connection to water and electricity grids – even a path leading to the plot – were absent.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe effects of these parameters are manifest in the structure not as compromises but as decisive gestures. The house is conceived as the assembly of two bodies: one that responds to the restrictions of the land and stretches along the lot’s entire 34m length. It occupies the maximum width allowed (6.8m) and is anchored on its highest point. The second body, diagonally orientated to the south, interrupts the house’s orthogonal system, in the process providing shelter against the ferocious south-easterly wind that has shaped the surrounding landscape. Resting on a wooden structure elevated 2m above the ground and standing at a maximum height of 7.5 m, Casa Abierta has access to ample views over the surrounding landscape and will continue to do so even if in the future, even if new constructions appear.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!Plan 2Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasBeyond the layout of the house, the technology which addresses the infrastructural limitations is again, steeped in the language of confidence rather than compromise. With its wooden framed built from FSC-certified Pinus elliotii and Eucalyptus from Brazil (both locally available, keeping costs down) the structure is naturally eco-friendly – but to call it such is a little flattening. “Eco-adapting” or “eco-respecting” might be a more appropriate description. Water from a natural well (filtered through a three step system) is heated using solar energy and during the winter, the central chimney warms the entire house, negating the need for any additional heating system. Natural light floods in thanks to the architect’s decision to surround the staircase with enclosing walls build from translucent polycarbonate. The house’s first level sits two meters above the ground, with the living space forming one large room arranged around that chimney. The second level comprises two bedrooms plus a deck, with rooftop terrace on the level above.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasReflecting upon the timing of the project, Talevi remarks, “While designing Casa Abierta, I officially became an Architect. Being both my opera prima and a family project, building the house became an extremely personal experience. It also defied everything I had learnt during my years as a student. It was a process of trial and error that examined knowledge, beliefs and references. While questioning ideas about space, its definition and its use throughout time, I was also exploring a shared design process and the intimacy of family life.” The definition of space that characterises Casa Abierta has already found meaning for the architect, their client and observers alike: a house, a home, enduring proof of constraint as a catalyst for creativity.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: RIBA Design Competition – ‘The Wall’Built Projects & MasterplansUrban Sanctuary at Helsinki Design Week 2016Event Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794875/open-house-rosario-talevi Clipboard Casa Abierta / Rosario TaleviSave this projectSaveCasa Abierta / Rosario Talevi ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794875/open-house-rosario-talevi Clipboard Area:  78 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Javier Agustín Rojas+ 27 Share Uruguaylast_img read more

ConceptSLIM FIT is a permanent micro dwelling of 50m2 designed for urban densification. SLIM FIT occupies with its minimal footprint, 16 m2, less area than 2 parking spaces. The smart and flexible design has many applications. The house can be placed freestanding, connected or between existing buildings. Thanks to its compact footprint, SLIM FIT is the ideal home for filling in and compacting the inner areas of city blocks.Save this picture!ModelDue to the large window size and full height of the rooms, the micro dwelling has a luxurious spaciousness. The concept is designed for the growing group of working singles who want to live compactly but comfortably, sustainably, full identity and above all centrally in urban contexts. SLIM FIT proves that spatial and identity full living is also possible within a minimal footprint.Save this picture!© Christiane WirthPrototypeThe design for SLIM FIT was in 2016 one of the winners of the “BuildingExpo Tiny Housing” competition, organized by the municipality of Almere, in The Netherlands. The first SLIM FIT has now been delivered in Almere Poort. Here the house is built detached, with an unobstructed view over the Homerus Park. The house is characterized by carefully designed and positioned openings on all four facades. This strategy offers the most ideal use of natural light; natural heating and cooling of the spaces, and views towards the park.Save this picture!© Christiane WirthIt feels like a villaThe functional organization of the different layers is based on the three basic living functions: cooking and eating on the ground floor, next to the garden; living and relaxing on the first floor; sleeping on the second floor. These three layers are connected by a continuous (book) shelf, which is integrated in the staircase. Thanks to the diversity of spaciousness, view and light quality per floor, the resident does not experience the house as a tiny house but as a compact, light and spacious park villa with its own garden.Save this picture!ModelMaterialityTo keep the walls as slender as possible the house was built with a wooden frame. The inside walls are finished with birch wooden panels and the facades with Ayous wood. In addition to its sustainable qualities, the wooden skeleton has the advantage of being build within two days. In small houses we often see that – door space shortage – custom-made, and thus expensive parts are needed. At SLIM FIT the kitchen block, sanitary and all furniture have standard measurements. Although placed within a very compact footprint, a standard pine wood stair makes the vertical connection. The other interior elements, such as the (book) shelf and the sliding panels are built out of birch plywood.Save this picture!© Christiane WirthClimateThe very simple and open floor plans enable various facade organizations. As a result, optimal use can be made of solar heat and natural ventilation, depending on the location of the house, and the way SLIM FIT is connected, detached or not. In Almere the glass surfaces are oriented towards the sun and the small rooms can be heated naturally. The presence of sliding panels prevents temperature loss. The positioning of smaller turn windows opposite to each other ensures natural ventilation and cooling of the spaces. The glass surfaces are equipped with heat-resistant glass and the roof is finished with a white, heat-resistant foil. The house is connected to urban-heating. These installations take up rather little space.Save this picture!© Christiane WirthProject gallerySee allShow lessDolní Břežany Sports Hall / SporadicalSelected ProjectsChaoyang Future School / CrossboundariesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889708/micro-house-slim-fit-ana-rocha-architecture Clipboard Houses Micro House Slim Fit / ANA ROCHA architecture Year:  CopyHouses•Almere, The Netherlands 2018center_img Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889708/micro-house-slim-fit-ana-rocha-architecture Clipboard The Netherlands Micro House Slim Fit / ANA ROCHA architectureSave this projectSaveMicro House Slim Fit / ANA ROCHA architectureSave this picture!© Christiane Wirth+ 42Curated by María Francisca González Share ArchDaily “COPY” Goedhart Bouw Manufacturers: RENSON Architects: ANA ROCHA architecture Area Area of this architecture project Contractor: CopyAbout this officeANA ROCHA architectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlmereThe NetherlandsPublished on March 01, 2018Cite: “Micro House Slim Fit / ANA ROCHA architecture” 01 Mar 2018.

Argentina: Women’s movement wins free, legal abortions

first_imgThousands of women cheered, jumped and cried tears of joy when the Argentinian Senate in the country’s capital of Buenos Aires voted to legalize abortion on Dec. 30. The lower house of Congress had passed the legislation backing the right to abortion earlier the same month.Women celebrate passage of law allowing legal abortion on Dec. 30, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.      Credit: TelesurThe law, which provides free, safe and legal abortions, was the result of decades of struggle led by the women’s movement and supported by the LGBTQ+ community, labor unions, left parties and human rights groups. It is important to note that Argentina’s law may be the most progressive in the world in one respect: It specifically allows for not only women, but people with other gender identities who can become pregnant, to obtain legal abortions in the country’s health care system.This fervent struggle triumphed over the Catholic Church and reactionary political forces, which had ferociously fought against the most fundamental of women’s rights for years. It is a signif- icant development for women throughout Latin America and the Caribbean in that, up until now, abortion has been permitted only in a few countries including Cuba, Uruguay, and Mexico City and the state of Oaxaca in Mexico. This victory is a major boost for women who are organizing for full reproductive rights throughout the vast regionA more extensive article about this victorious struggle will be posted soon at workers.org FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

USGC Confident China Won’t Flake on U.S. Corn Purchases

first_imgAudio Playerhttps://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2020/09/FULL-HAT-USGC-Confident-China-Will-Follow-Through-on-US-Corn-Purchases.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.China has been dominating U.S. new crop corn purchases. As of Monday, China has purchased more than 8.5 million metric tons of corn. That’s more than 336 million bushels of corn.“A lot of people are excited about the amount of corn that China is buying, and if we add that along with all the soybeans they’be been buying, how much of that is going to get shipped this fall?” said Cary Sifferath, senior director of global programs of the U.S. Grains Council (USGC). “We’re elevating grain off the barges into New Orleans or off railcars into vessels in the Pacific Northwest. [It’s] getting tighter and tighter because of all this big business.”With all of these purchases, some corn growers are hesitant to believe China will follow through, based on past experiences. Sifferath is confident China will fulfill these purchases.“All of the corn events are approved for importation into China,” he said. “Corn prices inside of China are extremely high—they’ve been auctioning off 4 million tons a week for 13 weeks, so there’s about an $80 to $100 ton spread between imports of U.S. corn into China versus what domestic corn is.”Pig prices are also quite high as China is rebuilding their hog herd after the ASF outbreak. Farmers have been changing their rations. Sifferath said that is also driving Chinese demand.“There used to be a lot of restaurant food waste that made its way into the feeding of hogs—tat’s pretty much been outlawed,” said Sifferath. “Even if you wanted to try and sneak it, it’s the fastest way to reintroduce ASF in your herd. These big, more sophisticated farming operations in China that are rebuilding are going to feed only corn or soybean meal diets—no food waste at all.”Even though Sifferath believes China will ship the product, there is a $80 a ton margin to be made by the Chinese state-run company responsible for purchasing grain.“There’s huge incentive just to pad your pocketbook into actually bringing this corn into China.” By Ashley Davenport – Sep 2, 2020 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News USGC Confident China Won’t Flake on U.S. Corn Purchases USGC Confident China Won’t Flake on U.S. Corn Purchases SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articlePurdue Is The New Home to North Central Regional Center for Rural DevelopmentNext articleAgriNovus Indiana Launches Producer-Led Innovation Challenge to Bring Together Indiana Farmers, Software Innovators Ashley Davenportlast_img read more
