Tom Rodgers | Tuesday, 31st December, 2019 | More on: SDI SOLI See all posts by Tom Rodgers The turn of a new year is a time to reassess what you have, how you’ve spent your time and money, and to rewrite your investing goals.With that in mind, these are the top shares I’m watching for real growth in the coming 12 months.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…Why only two?Most ‘best for 2020’ lists might offer a top 5 or top 10, but my honest assessment is that concentrating on fewer stocks will be better for your wealth.We know from Warren Buffett’s legendary deep research and gargantuan patience that poorer investors will over-trade, buying too many shares too often instead of focusing higher stakes on fewer, better companies.I’d classify those below — both AIM-listed — as having higher risk-reward profiles than the stable FTSE 100 companies paying 6% dividends that make up the bulk of my portfolio.AIM stocks have looser financial reporting requirements than main market firms. If your investing style is set-and-forget, these may not fit your risk profile.SDICambridge firm SDI Group (LSE:SDI) designs and builds digital imaging technology for the life sciences, precision optics for astronomy and instruments for healthcare.It is growing at a fair old clip. 2018 and 2019 were particularly good years, with year-end 2019 showing margins consistent at 66%, revenues up 20% to £17.4m, and pre-tax profits at £2.1m.Then December’s half-year results put turnover 58% higher, boosted by double-digit growth from its acquisitions Sentek, Astles, and Applied Thermal Control.The £4.3m buyout of profitable gas flow manufacturer Chell Instruments was another solid move to grow 2020’s earnings.The shares come with a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 27, which may be a little high for some tastes. But booming earnings mean greater valuations and I think SDI will continue to outperform. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Solid StateAnother AIM-lister with a good track record of climbing revenue and profits, Solid State (LSE:SOLI) has been something of a revelation this winter. The Redditch tech firm supplies rugged computing equipment for use in harsh environments, with clients including oil and gas producers, the military, and security contractors.The company’s market cap has shot up from £39.8m three months ago to £53.5m at the end of December 2019.A $3m rail contract win kicked off September, then 2019 first-half results showed record profits and sales growth of 7.5%, with the company returning to net cash. Profits for the first half were 75% up on the year before, and revenue 43% higher to £33.6m.The company floated on AIM in 1996, so is no flash in the pan, in my opinion. Its revenue, pre-tax profits, and earnings per share have improved every year since 2016.It has been growing organically, but in November 2018 acquired marine wire, cable, and battery manufacturer Pacer group for £3.8m and raised its dividend by 4% to an all-time high of 12.5p.Chair Tony Frere noted in a September 2019 trading update that very strong first-half sales “illustrate our success…and our aspiration to double the size of the business“, with full-year profits “significantly ahead of expectations“. Based on the first-half results out in December, Solid State hiked the interim dividend by 25%.At a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 16, the shares aren’t even overvalued. Now could still be a good time to get in to SOLI before it really kicks off in 2020.last_img read more

Leading elbow to throat results in suspension for Ulster prop Andrew Warwick

first_imgThursday Mar 11, 2021 Leading elbow to throat results in suspension for Ulster prop Andrew Warwick Ulster front rower Andrew Warwick received his marching orders against Leinster this past weekend after he had attempted to fend off an opposition tackler with his forearm. The result was a red card and subsequent suspension. ADVERTISEMENTReferee Frank Murphy was immediately alerted to the incident by appeals from prop Ed Byrne and upon further inspection, felt that a Yellow card for use of the elbow was the correct call.“I’m looking at a yellow card because I don’t see a high degree of danger, he just slips up over his shoulder with the forearm close to the actual point of the elbow.”However, just before making his decision, he was persuaded by the TMO to have another look and escalate it to Red due to the view that the elbow made contact with the throat.WATCH: Referee Wayne Barnes uses Ninja Turtles to clarify heavily-debated lawWarwick faced a Disciplinary hearing with the Panel consisting of Roddy MacLeod (Chair), Frank Hadden and Beth Dickens (all SRU), who concluded that an act of foul play had occurred.“The Player raised his fore-arm prior to contact with an opponent, which led to contact to the neck / head area of the opponent. The Panel found that this was reckless conduct. However, as the contact to the opponent’s neck was secondary contact and there was no injury to the opponent, the Panel found that it merited a low-end entry point,” a statement read.“The Panel had regard to World Rugby’s notes to the application of Law 9.11 and considered that it was not bound to impose a mid-range entry point.”Law 9.11 states: Players must not do anything that is reckless or dangerous to others.ADVERTISEMENT“The Player is suspended from participating in the next two meaningful matches. Should a game be cancelled or postponed during this window of games, the player and PRO14 are to submit updated fixtures to the Disciplinary Panel so the return date can be advised. The Player is free to play from midnight on Sunday, 21 March 2021 and this sanction ensures he will be unavailable for two games.”He will miss the Guinness PRO14 fixtures against Dragons and Zebre.You can see the incident in the video below (40 minutes in)ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 13 WEEKS AGO Re-live possibly the biggest hit of Andy… 13 WEEKS AGO Totally unnecessary shoulder charge goes… 13 WEEKS AGO Hepetema facing ban after sending off in… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Church Hill Barn / David Nossiter Architects

The site, situated on the Essex/Suffolk borders within the landscape immortalised by Constable was originally the home farm of the nearby estate, destroyed by fire in the 1950s. It consists of a collection of farm buildings forming a courtyard. The centrepiece of the site with views over the rural landscape is a large barn of cathedral-like proportions. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldCruciform in plan with a collection of smaller spaces surrounding it, the arrangement sought to provide shelter for different farming activities under a single roof. The barn complex is the legacy of the model farm movement. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldThe clients purchased the buildings in dilapidated condition. Having sold their own property in nearby Colchester they decided to reside in a caravan on the site during the build. David had worked on a previous project and was the natural choice of architect. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe barn is a Listed structure and the contemporary refurbishment required lengthy agreements with the local planning authorities. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldA large component of the renovations consisted of the refurbishment of the roof. Roofing slates and timber materials were salvaged from the other agricultural structures on the site that were too decayed to be usefully renovated. In order to allow the existing structure to be viewed internally but still conform to modern standards of thermal performance, the roof is a ‘warm roof construction’ meaning that all of the insulation is located on the exterior of the roof above a new timber deck. Save this picture!SectionsThe external walls were insulated with sheep’s wool and clad with larch timber, which has been left to weather naturally. The original openings have been simply fenestrated with glazing set back from the external wall line. Oversized bespoke glazed sliding doors fill the hipped gable porches, allowing views from the courtyard towards open fields. Two three- metre square roof lights allow day light deep into the interior of the eight-metre tall central spaces. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldIt was decided early on during the design process to keep the spaces as open plan as possible. Where necessary partitions and screens are designed as over scaled freestanding furniture. Constructed from birch faced plywood sheets, they organise the spaces, providing privacy for bathrooms and sleeping areas. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldA reminder of the barn’s agricultural past, lighting is operated using existing switch boxes and concealed within the existing structure, existing metal grilles and new joinery. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldPolished concrete flooring flows throughout with 10mm floor joints aligning with the spatial demarcation. A biomass boiler is assisted by a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system that recirculates warm air stacking in the taller spaces. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldLandscaping and planting reflects the internal spaces and is kept simple with wildflower planting and brick paving salvaged from the existing barn complex. Save this picture!© Steve LancefieldProject gallerySee allShow lessIs India Building the “Wrong” Sort of Architecture?ArticlesDe Bank / KAAN ArchitectenSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/802833/church-hill-barn-david-nossiter-architects Clipboard Church Hill Barn / David Nossiter ArchitectsSave this projectSaveChurch Hill Barn / David Nossiter Architects 2016 “COPY” “COPY” Save this picture!© Steve Lancefield+ 51 Share CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Suffolk, United Kingdom Projects ArchDaily Year:  Photographs:  Steve Lancefield Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs Architects: David Nossiter Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/802833/church-hill-barn-david-nossiter-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeDavid Nossiter ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentSuffolkUnited KingdomPublished on January 06, 2017Cite: “Church Hill Barn / David Nossiter Architects” 06 Jan 2017.

Across the street from the property, in the low dunes near the Atlantic Ocean, a historic Life Saving Station serves as a cherished reminder of the maritime, military and architectural history of this coastal landscape.  Built over a century ago, the station is part of a network of structures used to provide rescue and relief for shipwrecked sailors, and it was from this station that a guard once discovered Nazi invaders coming ashore during World War II.  Designed with lookout towers, weather-protected cupolas and elevated decks, the stations offered many views for the crews to survey the horizon through all seasons.  Inside, large, open storage rooms often featured boats, oars and other useful items hung from exposed beams for easy access.  Taking cues from this structure, the design of the new residence strikes a dialogue with the landmark to enrich the experience of the new home and celebrate the local history.Save this picture!© Bates Masi ArchitectsThe principal strategy for the home stems from the utilitarian practice of hanging boats and other items from the station’s wooden post and beam structure. In a modern reinterpretation, the residence features an exposed steel structure which defines the main living spaces and forms a framework onto which other functions can be hung: the main stair is strung from beams above, and the rods used to support each tread serve as guardrail for the stair; a wood burning stove sits on a suspended steel shelf; light fixtures are fastened to the flanges using standard beam clamps; a swinging chair hangs from the cantilevered living area above.     Save this picture!© Bates Masi ArchitectsOn the exterior, a system of bronze bars was developed to hang the thick cedar siding boards in place without fastening through the wood, allowing the boards to expand and contract naturally with changes of temperature and humidity. Like the weathered cedar shingles on the Station across the street, each material—cedar, bronze, and weathering steel—was chosen for its proven durability in the coastal climate.  As each material weathers over time, the appearance of the siding will record the cycles of rain, sun, freeze and thaw: cedar will lighten from the sun; bronze bars will patina to dark brown and eventually turn green; weathering steel will develop a deep rusted texture on the surface which protects it from further corrosion by the salty air.  The weathering steel around the base of the building marks the height the home was raised above the flood plain. To minimize the impact of the footprint on the sensitive ecological environment, the main living area is stacked above the bedrooms, and, like the lookout towers of the stations, an even higher roof deck provides elevated views of ocean.    Save this picture!© Bates Masi ArchitectsBy taking cues from the historic lifesaving station, the home responds to the environmental and historical context.  In so doing, it honors the local heritage and enriches the present day experience.Save this picture!© Bates Masi ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessOMA’s £110 million Arts Center in Manchester Receives Planning ApprovalArchitecture NewsThe Eiffel Tower to Undergo 15-Year, €300 Million Renovation ProjectArchitecture News Share Atlantic / Bates Masi ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAtlantic / Bates Masi Architects Save this picture!© Bates Masi Architects+ 16 Share CopyAbout this officeBates Masi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmagansettUnited StatesPublished on January 16, 2017Cite: “Atlantic / Bates Masi Architects” 16 Jan 2017.
