Making money with the digital revolution! 4 UK shares I’d buy before the ISA deadline

The ‘digital revolution’ has helped many UK share investors make brilliant returns on their invested cash over the past decade. Themes like the rise of e-commerce, the growing role of automation to help companies cut costs, and the birth of the mysterious-sounding Internet of Things have all proved happy hunting grounds for many stock pickers recently.It looks like the digital revolution could continue to generate fatty profits for plenty of UK shares in the 2020s too following the Covid-19 outbreak. Here are three British stocks I’d happily buy for my Stocks and Shares deadline before the 5 April deadline: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…Cloud 9Flexible working practices have been steadily growing in popularity thanks to technological improvements. The 2020 pandemic and its effect on millions across the globe has reinforced the idea that partial or full homeworking will become the new normal. Recent polling shows that fewer than one in five Britons, for example, will want to work out of the office five days a week following Covid-19 outbreak.I believe all of this will play into the hands of Iomart Group. This UK share offers cloud computing platforms via its vast network of data centres. These allow workforces to carry out their work seamlessly and stay connected. Beware, though, that problems at said centres is always a risk that could cause huge operational problems for its clients.2 UK shares I’ve already bought2020 was a tough year for the broader retail sector. Covid-19 lockdowns and weak consumer confidence caused revenues to collapse for legions of bricks-and-mortar retail operators. However, these conditions favoured online-only retailers and those with extensive Internet operations as shoppers flocked online. Restrictions prompted swathes of new online shoppers to emerge, leading swathes of analysts to upgrade their forecasts for e-commerce growth in the 2020s.There are many ways that UK share investors can latch onto the e-retail theme. And I chose to buy Clipper Logistics and Tritax Big Box REIT for my ISA. These companies provide warehousing and logistics services that allow retailers, product manufacturers, and couriers to get parcels from businesses to consumers (and vice versa). Bear in mind, though, that changing consumer trends (from people preferring to spend on experiences instead of products and the growing importance of sustainability) could hit demand for their expertise in the future.Another top ISA buyThe digital revolution has led to exponential growth in the activity of cyber attacks and online fraud too. So companies and governments are having to spend more and more to tackle the problem. This was illustrated by the UK government’s plans announced last week to boost spending on cyber protection.This is a problem that is boosting profits at Avast though. This FTSE 100 stock saw organic sales of its products rise almost 8% in 2020. And I’m confident this particular operator has the scale to take on mighty US industry giants like Microsoft and McAfee. That said, cyber attacks are becoming ever-more sophisticated and this represents a significant challenge to security companies like this. A high-profile failure to keep one or more of its clients protected could prove devastating to future revenues.

Jerome Schuster cited for headbutt against Munster

first_imgWednesday Dec 23, 2009 Jerome Schuster cited for headbutt against Munster As suspected, Perpignan prop Jerome Schuster has been cited for what looks to be a headbutt on Munster flanker Denis Leamy during their recent Heineken Cup match at the Stade Aime Giral.Schuster was yellow carded upon the recommendation of the assistant referee, who was a few metres away as Schuster was pulled to the ground by Leamy. He then overreacted by driving into him with his head.He will face a disciplinary hearing on January 13, specifically for striking with the head, which is in contravention of the Law 10.4 (a) – A player must not strike an opponent with the fist or arm, including the elbow, shoulder, head or knee(s).If found guilty, the shortest possible ban Schuster will receive is four weeks.The middle of the range sanction for striking with the head is 8 weeks, while top-end offences carry a punishment of anything from 12 weeks and up. The maximum a player can receive is 2 years.If Schuster does get suspended, he will miss Perpignans last two pool games against Northampton and Bennetton Treviso. It might not bother them too much though, as theyre already out of contention in Pool 1, following two losses to Munster, and one to Treviso. With all the evidence laid before you, would you ban him, and if yes, for how long?

San Antonio Hacienda / Dionne Arquitectos + Posada Arquitectos

first_img Year:  Projects “COPY” 2012 The San Antonio Hacienda was built in the eighteenth century on the foothills of Mount Zapotecas, west of the city of Puebla. The project involves the recovery of a property with historic value, and designing seven apartments that through their contemporaneity also give testimony to the history of the place.Save this picture!Courtesy of Dionne ArquitectosRecommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BuildWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsThe courtyards are a clear example of the conjugation between the past of the site and the architectural intervention, where materials like wood and glass fuse with the elements of the hacienda, creating comfortable spaces that demonstrate the uniqueness of the place.Save this picture!© Patrick López JaimesTaking advantage of the dimensions and characteristics of a space like this, seven loft apartments are designed, where double heights and mezzanine levels are constant, creating living spaces that are lived openly both inside and outside, creating open common spaces that are discovered as one walks through the building.Save this picture!© Patrick López JaimesThere was broad sense of respect for the legacy of the place, not just in keeping the walls belonging to the original building, but also in reusing materials that were still present in the property, making them part of the new proposal and integrating them on facades, doors, floors and ceilings.Save this picture!Plan Level 2We thought of the views that the building already had, so each apartment has its own characteristics that integrate it into the ensemble but also make them unique among the others.

The Issa Megaron project is dealing with questions regarding the context of the site boundary, envisioned on the plot that is read as a “void”, a blank space-with deception that context is non -existent. Given that the “genius loci” is not only the plot an island of Vis but actually the Mediterranean, we conceive the house by the system of the Socrates Megaron ( as the first passive house), reinterpreting the ancient traditional stone drywalls and creating a new rural man-made topography.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanićSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Damir FabijanićThe assignment was to design a house for a temporary family retreat on a site without infrastructure, at the same time completely satisfying the needs of the user. The complete lack of infrastructure and general inaccessibility imply that self-sustainability is prerogative, and the only solution for the completion of the project, that encompasses the plausibility of the project, minimal costs, satisfaction of all user needs, local government and urban plans as well as the architectural expression. The house is designed with natural cooling and ventilation systems, rainwater exploitation, solar panels, and other elaborate ways of exploiting natural resources, enabling the facility to function as a place for life.Save this picture!© Damir FabijanićSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Miljenko BernfestThe house is envisioned as a dug in volume, a residential pocket between the stretches of space forming walls, an artificial grotto, a memory of a primitive shelter. It consists of two levels – sleeping quarters/lounge on the first floor and downstairs open space dining/kitchen/lounge area opened to the covered and uncovered terraces and pool deck. All the bearing elements are made of reinforced concrete. Stone from the site was used for the cladding of the facade. The design that emerges from such conditions is subtle, creates a symbiosis with the new/old stonewall topography.

Mexican rebellion vs high gas prices

first_imgProtests and rebellions have taken place in at least 22 Mexican states over a 20 percent hike in the cost of gas imposed by President Enrique Peña Nieto at the beginning of the year. Demonstrations have been held throughout the country at gas stations, government buildings, oil refineries, city squares and highways.Gas had previously been subsidized by the Mexican state to prevent high prices at the pump. Nieto’s deregulation scheme, called the “gasolinazo” by protesters, means that gas prices in Mexico will now be set according to international rates.According to the Times Union: “The change boosted the average price for a liter of premium gasoline to 17.79 pesos (about 90 cents). That makes 4 liters, or about a gallon, equal to nearly as much as Mexico’s just raised minimum wage for a day’s work — 80 pesos (about $4).” (Jan. 6)In Mexico City, some 20,000 businesses have been shuttered in response to the ongoing uprising. While Mexican officials and mainstream media outlets have attempted to denounce the rebels for looting, it was four police officers in Mexico City who were caught on video filling up their patrol cars with stolen goods. (, Jan. 8)Making an implicit link between the austerity measure and the neoliberal attack on immigrant rights, the same article reported that protesters also freed a group of migrants from an immigrant detention center in the state of Chiapas on Jan. 4, and then burned the center down.Protesters, organized by a student group in the Mexican state of Baja California, converged Jan. 7 on the busy Mexico-U.S. border crossing between Tijuana and San Ysidro, Calif. The action forced officers from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the California Highway Patrol to divert traffic for nearly four hours. (San Diego Union Tribune, Jan. 7)Nieto begged for understanding on national television on Jan. 5, claiming that the increase was solely the result of an increase in international oil prices. He asked, “What would you have done?”The Jan. 8 New York Times reported some answers posted on social media shortly after Nieto’s speech: “Combat corruption and impunity. Eliminate gasoline vouchers for elected officials. Collect more taxes from multinational corporations. Cut the salaries and benefits of high-level government officials. Sell the presidential plane. Reduce the first lady’s wardrobe spending. Resign.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Zoetis Receives European Commission Marketing Authorization for Solensia® (frunevetmab), a New Therapy for Feline…

first_img Twitter ZAVENTEM, Belgium–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Zoetis Inc. (NYSE:ZTS) today announced that the European Commission has granted the marketing authorization for Solensia ® (frunevetmab), a new feline osteoarthritis treatment to alleviate pain. Osteoarthritis in cats is a very prevalent condition 1, existing in 40% of cats, and may generate pain and limit a cat’s comfort and quality of life if not treated. Solensia works differently from current treatment options by targeting Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), a key player in osteoarthritis (OA) pain. 1,2 It functions like naturally occurring antibodies, with minimal involvement of the liver or kidneys in their metabolism and elimination process, and minimal gastrointestinal impact. 3 It is delivered by the veterinarian as a monthly injection (under the skin). “At Zoetis, our monoclonal antibody research continues to advance the care of animals, and our platform allows us to explore new therapeutic areas for the management of diseases with high prevalence and high unmet needs,” said Catherine Knupp, DVM, MS, Executive Vice President and President, Research and Development at Zoetis. “OA pain in cats remains vastly undertreated, and Solensia is a prime example of our commitment to meaningful innovation in feline medicines. This monthly treatment is an effective new treatment option for veterinarians and cat owners, and we are very pleased to be granted the first approval of a monoclonal antibody therapy for alleviation of pain in cats.” Improved quality of life for cats and their owners By alleviating pain, Solensia helps generally improve physical activity level, sociability and quality of life of cats with OA. This new product’s benefits are effective pain relief, combined with a positive safety profile in a monthly injectable treatment for OA pain in cats. In a clinical study over three months, pet owners observed signs of pain, including physical activity level, sociability and quality of life. A total of 76% of cat owners reported sustained improvement in signs of pain when their cats were treated with Solensia. Margaret E. Gruen 4, DVM, MVPH, PhD, DACVB, Assistant Professor of Behavioral Medicine at North Carolina State University, said: “My clinical research, and personal experience, has shown that OA pain can affect cats in a variety of ways. It impairs their ability to perform their activities of daily living and negatively impacts their quality of life. OA pain can also affect sleep, cognitive function, affect (emotion) and social relationships.” “NGF is one of the key factors mediating pain, inducing the release of both pro-inflammatory mediators and more NGF contributing to a cycle of pain and inflammation. Anti-NGF therapy could be the most exciting therapeutic advancement in more than 20 years in veterinary medicine to control OA pain, and I welcome this innovative tool for clinicians working to alleviate OA pain. The monthly administration makes it especially useful for cats, with the potential to bring pain relief to millions of cats who suffer from OA,” she said. Veterinarians believe that Solensia would help more cats with OA pain be treated and for longer 5. Mike McFarland, DVM, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at Zoetis said: “In my experience, I have learned that cats can hide their pain well. Cat owners used to come in when their cats were showing signs of discomfort like sleeping more, irritability or lack of activity, but they thought these were just ‘normal’ aging behaviours. Thanks to Solensia, veterinarians will now have a breakthrough solution available for the management of pain associated with osteoarthritis in cats and will ultimately offer new alternatives to cat owners to improve the quality of life of their pets.” Rob Kelly, Executive Vice President and President, International Operations at Zoetis concludes, “Our focus on feline medicines is not new. It includes a large portfolio of solutions to predict, prevent, detect and treat diseases with rapid-test diagnostics, vaccines and other preventative solutions like Stronghold Plus ® against several parasites, Cerenia ® for alleviation of vomiting and Synulox ® for the treatment of a wide range of bacterial infections in cats. We are very excited to now add Solensia to our portfolio of feline products, as a unique new solution for cat owners and veterinarians in the management of pain associated with osteoarthritis.” The active substance of Solensia is frunevetmab, a monoclonal antibody (mAb) distinct to that used in Librela (bedinvetmab), its canine counterpart. Each was designed specifically for its target species. About Solensia®(frunevetmab) Frunevetmab is a monoclonal antibody designed specifically for cats. It neutralizes Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), a key player involved in osteoarthritis in cats, and in doing so reduces pain. During the pivotal clinical trial, Solensia ® demonstrated a positive profile, and a total of 76% of cat owners reported sustained improvement in signs of pain when their cats were treated.
