Investing £2k, or any other amount, in FTSE 100 shares today may not deliver strong returns over the coming months. In fact, an uncertain outlook for the world economy may cause challenging trading conditions for many of the index’s members.However, over the long run the index is likely to recover from its recent crash to post new record highs. It has achieved this goal following each of its previous downturns.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer good value for money at the present time. They could be worth buying as part of a diverse portfolio of equities.FTSE 100 miner FresnilloPrecious metals miner Fresnillo’s (LSE: FRES) share price has bucked the wider FTSE 100 trend to post a 5% rise since the start of the year. This could be due to improving investor sentiment towards gold miners as the commodity has often been viewed as a store of wealth during uncertain economic periods.Furthermore, Fresnillo recently released a relatively positive update for the first quarter of the year. Its gold and silver production was in line with expectations, while it is making encouraging progress on its development pipeline. This may help the FTSE 100 business to deliver rising production in the coming years after some disappointing performances over recent years.Despite its share price rise, Fresnillo seems to offer good value for money at the present time. It trades on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of around 0.4. This suggests that investors have not yet priced-in its growth potential, which could lead to a rising share price over the medium term.Fresnillo may also benefit from a continued uncertain economic outlook. As such, it could deliver stronger share price performance than many of its FTSE 100 index peers.ShellThe oil price may have rebounded over recent weeks, but it continues to trade at exceptionally low levels. This is likely to negatively impact on the performances of a wide range of oil and gas companies, including FTSE 100 stock Shell (LSE: RDSB).In response, the business has taken actions such as reducing its dividend, cutting capital expenditure plans and aiming to slash its operating expenses. These changes could help to strengthen its financial position ahead of what is set to be a challenging period for the wider industry.Shell’s share price has declined by 47% since the start of the year. This suggests that investors have started to factor-in the problems it could face should commodity prices remain at low levels.Since the FTSE 100 company has greater size and scale than many of its sector peers, it may be in a stronger position to survive difficult operating conditions over the short term. Therefore, on a long-term outlook, it could offer recovery potential from its current stock price level.

Others scattered ashes of loved ones.At the main outdoor service at Hagley Park, attended by 20,000 people, the names of 185 people who died in the quake were read by police, fire and hospital chaplains and other emergency services personnel.The city’s Catholic bishop, Barry Jones, introduced two minutes’ silence at 12:51 pm, the time the 22 February quake struck, concluding with a prayer for victims and those affected by the earthquake.“Your son Jesus showed himself to be the physician of souls. May those burdened by fear, anxiety, worry and hopelessness, know your healing hand,” he said.The Anglican bishop of Christchurch, Victoria Matthews, closed the service with a prayer. “Hearts are so full. For those who have lost loved ones, who have been injured mentally, physically and spiritually, we wish you God’s peace,” she said.Matthews lost her home and the diocese lost its cathedral and a number of churches. In the case of one building that required immediate demolition, Matthews had to perform the deconsecration in hard hat and a raincoat, as there was no time to get episcopal robes.A decision on the future of ChristChurch Anglican Cathedral, which lost its spire and famed rose window and suffered further damage in December, will be made next month after results of new engineering assessments.The seriously damaged Catholic Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament may be rebuilt, pending assessments.A total of 140 groups, including the Christchurch City Mission, Christchurch Methodist Mission Grace Vineyard Christian Fellowship, and Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, were presented with Christchurch Earthquake Awards of Service in a ceremony after the Hagley Park service.

The scheme is located away from the high density and congestion of Sukhumvit road and into a blissfully green low-rise residential area. The development has been separated into two towers to maximize plot ratio, and each building targets to different potential tenants in character.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceThe two towers are visually interconnected through a folding “Tree Bark” envelope that wraps around from the 32-storey rear tower (Ashton) and 10duplex-storey front tower (Skyle). This outer skin is a combination of precast concrete panels, expanded meshes and planters. The functions of the skin varies from being sun shading devices to covering air condensing units. The bark on the west and east side strategically becomes green walls, in accordance to the tropic sun’s orientation. The height of this wall is 65m on the front tower and 130m on the rear tower respectively, providing the residences and neighbors with a comfortable visual and natural environment.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioSkyle is targeted for singles or young couples with the smallest unit footprint being 23.3 m2.

The unit sizes and types vary from a single bed with a reading room, to duplex units with a private swimming pool and a garden on 8th floor, and a four bed duplex penthouse at top level. A 2.4m cantilevered living space projects from each unit on the North side. This is made up of a glazing enclosure on three sides providing the maximum view.

Cultural open air walks to raise funds for museums and galleries

first_img Howard Lake | 20 January 2015 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Art Miles is a new fundraising initiative from the Art Fund to help raise funds for museums and galleries. Instead of walking round the exhibition halls of a museum or gallery, these walks offer you the chance to walk round the grounds of these institutions and raise funds for them.The events offer a combination of health and fitness and cultural appreciation, and access to areas not usually open to the public.https://twitter.com/CultureLabel/status/555741333705347072The first three events take place on 22 March 2015 in London. Art Miles walkers can visit parts of Chiswick House and Gardens that are not normally open to the public, experience falconry at Dulwich Picture Gallery and come away with their own artwork from the William Morris Gallery.Everyone taking part will also receive “a lovely Art Miles bag on arrival”.The registration fee is £20 for adults. Up to four children aged 16 and under can walk for free when accompanied by a paying adult.The money raised will be donated to the local gallery or museum, minus “a small admin fee to the Art Fund” for organising and promoting the events.The Art Fund suggests other ways to raise even more funds, including dressing up in fancy dress and inviting family and friends to sponsor you as you walk round.Stephen Deuchar, director of the Art Fund, said:“As the national fundraising charity for art, we hope that Art Miles will galvanise both existing and new supporters, helping communities to enjoy beautiful buildings, parks and art on their doorsteps.”  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: arts Community fundraising Eventscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement Cultural open air walks to raise funds for museums and gallerieslast_img read more

Amputee’s jail term postponed to allow him get spare leg

first_imgNewsAmputee’s jail term postponed to allow him get spare legBy Staff Reporter – October 30, 2014 885 Email Twitter by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A CONVICTED amputee is to give himself up to the the Governor of Limerick Prison this Halloween after a sentencing judge postponed jailing him to allow him get a spare prosthetic leg ahead of serving a two year prison sentence for stabbing his friend at the house party on New Years Day three years ago.Vincent Leamy (42), originally from Castleconnell but with an address in Pineview Gardens, Moyross, admitted assault causing serious harm to his friend through multiple stab wounds including a laceration to the kidney.Judge Carroll Moran heard that Leamy was invited to a New Year house party with friends but a dispute developed between the two men in the kitchen of the injured party’s home.Offensive comments were made and the defendant said that he was jealous of the lifestyle of his friend.The dispute escalated and Leamy stabbed his friend in the cheek, upper neck, hand and abdomen when he was asked to leave the house.The injured man went to bed unaware of the extent of his injuries but he was taken to hospital the next morning when his partner noticed the blood and wounds infliced the previous night.The stab wound to his abdomen had caused a laceration to his kidney and Judge Moran said it was lucky for both the injured party and the accused that the extent of the injuries was not much more serious”.Having adjourned the case for a year to see if Leamy could stay out of trouble and off drink and drugs, Judge Moran was told that the accused man had three serious convictions for drug offences in the meantime.Defence Counsel Brian McInerney argued that there was no evidence before the court that his client had taken drugs but Judge Moran said he was “peddling” drugs.Mr McInerney said his client, who has a prosthetic limb, has his “own medical difficulties in life that burden him on a daily basis”.Judge Moran said the use of knives in a dispute was “quite unacceptable” and can have catastrophic consequences.Imposing a three year sentence, Judge Moran suspended the final year and agreed to defer the sentence for one week, given Mr Leamy’s medical needs.Leamy gave an undertaking to present himself at the gates of Limerick Prison at 1pm on October 31.

Representative Plans to Consider Different Approach to Passing Regulatory Relief

She specializes in visual storytelling and has skills in video, audio and photography, in addition to news writing. She has traveled to Mexico and Bosnia as an assistant for multiple multimedia projects and taught news writing, photojournalism, and narrative storytelling in the past. Representative Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pennsylvania) said he will be exploring a change in strategy in order to get some regulatory relief passed, after a bill that would address 12 separate fixes to the Dodd-Frank Act was thwarted by the Senate. Fitzpatrick, a member of the House Financial Services Committee, has introduced a bill that would give banks an additional two years to dispose of collateralized loan obligations as required by the Volcker Rule, on two separate occasions, according to a report.In January, the house passed the bill by a vote of 271 to 154, with 29 Democrats voting in favor of it. However, Senate Democrats led by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) vowed to fight the bill and it failed to pass. Democrats, including Warren, have said they worry that bills that claim to be aimed at relieving regulatory burdens for small banks are being used to roll back Dodd-Frank for the benefit of the largest financial institutions.Fitzpatrick noted Tuesday that each of the individual bills included in his legislation, the “Promoting Job Creation and Reducing Small Business Burden Act,” had bipartisan support when they either passed the full House or his committee. But when packaged together, they have drawn the ire of more liberal Democrats.“These are the bipartisan ideas,” Fitzpatrick said following an appearance in New York. “You package them together and put them on the floor. Then [Senator Elizabeth Warren] comes out against one of the 12, and all of a sudden we lose all our support.”The Pennsylvania Republican said that he may have to consider a new approach to getting some regulatory relief done, including possibly lifting the asset threshold, that banks used to be determined systemically important financial institutions, from the $50 billion where it currently stands and providing regulatory relief for small banks.
