In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img While some UK shares have rallied after the market crash, many others continue to trade at appealing price levels.As such, they could prove to be more attractive investments over the long run than gold or Bitcoin. After all, the track record of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 show that they have always recovered from their downturns to produce new record highs.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 stocks that appear to offer wide margins of safety. Buying them now could improve your financial outlook and even help you to retire early.BAE: attractive long-term opportunity among UK sharesAs with many UK shares, BAE’s (LSE: BA) stock price continues to trade lower than it did at the start of the year. It is currently down 10% year-to-date, which suggests that it could offer a margin of safety as investors factor in an uncertain economic environment.The company’s recent results showed that it has delivered a resilient performance in the first half of the year. It reported strong demand for its products, and it expects to experience an improving performance in the second half of the year across many of its key markets.BAE has also resumed dividend payments at a time when many other UK shares have cancelled or delayed their shareholder payouts. It currently yields around 4.5%, which could increase its appeal among income-seeking investors in an era when interest rates are expected to remain at low levels for a sustained period of time. Therefore, buying it now could deliver impressive total returns in the coming years as the world economy recovers from the impact of the pandemic.Imperial Brands: recovery potential after challenging periodImperial Brands (LSE: IMB) is another business that could offer recovery potential as the prospects for UK shares improve. The tobacco company’s shares are currently trading a third lower than they were at the start of the year, with disappointing recent financial performance contributing to weaker investor sentiment.Looking ahead, Imperial Brands is likely to implement a refreshed strategy in the coming months. It has a new management team that could refocus its capital on long-term growth opportunities. This could help to improve investor sentiment and to deliver stronger financial performance at a time of major change for the tobacco industry. It has also recently sold its cigars business for a total of €1.2bn, which could allow it to invest in more attractive growth opportunities elsewhere.Although its short-term prospects may be disrupted by the impact of the coronavirus on travel retail demand, Imperial Brands appears to offer a wide margin of safety and turnaround potential relative to other UK shares. Therefore, it could be worth buying today as part of a diverse portfolio of stocks. See all posts by Peter Stephens Image source: Getty Images Forget gold and Bitcoin.

It is very simple, it does not cost you one cent. You must be 18 years of age at least, to register, and to vote. You must be a citizen of the United States of America, you must affirm by checking a box on the application, that you are not a felon, or if you are, that your rights have been restored. You must affirm by checking a box on the application, that you have not been adjudicated mentally incapacitated, with respect to voting, or if you have, your right to vote has been restored. These above things are the most important, and if you pass these requirements, then you will need to get a Florida Voter Registration Application. You can go online and apply by googling on the google search bar, “Orange County Florida Supervisor of Elections website. There you will find the info you need and the online application. You can apply there online for most applicants….You also can mail in your application. If you chose to mail it in, you can pick up and application at the City of Apopka’s City Clerk office. You also can go to the closest library, and pick it up there and fill it in. Be sure to sign it with your signature, like on your DL, and make sure all the required information is filled in (these will be the black numbered items) and look on the back of the application, to see if you will need any copies of documents to send in with your application. Most cases don’t need copies of additional documents, if you already have a valid Florida Drivers License, Florida ID card, or Social Security Card. If you are voting for the first time, and don’t have any of these above items, you will need to make copies of other documents to send in, but don’t send your originals!!! Don’t do that, just get copies!!!…LOL Oath: I do solemnly swear ( or affirm) that I will protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Florida, that I am qualified to register as an elector under the Constitution and laws of the State of Florida, and all the information provided in this application is true. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Oh he will be springing surprises , just like he did in splitting up the city in two sections hoping he can eke out a small vote, by disenfranchising a lot of Voters that now will have no bus service to get to go vote, so they can’t vote against him, I cry foul, people let’s all vote by absentee against him, if not then we will work out a way to get you to the polls. Mama Mia You will list your full name, your suffix, such as jr., sr., II, III, or IV… address, DL number if you have one, the city, county, and state you reside in, your zip code, mailing address if different from where you actually live, your last address where you were registered to vote if by you had voted before, but not if you are applying to vote for the first time…..your birthdate, month, day, and year…..your party affliation such as Democrat, Republican, or minor party and print in the name of the minor party, or none, or NPA…..next you will check your race…..here are the listings for race…American Indian/Alaskan Native….Asian/ Pacific Islander…….Black, Not Hispanic…..Hispanic…..White/Not Hispanic……that is all of the choices of race on this application…..next you check your sex…male or female ( no other choices there on the application)…LOL….next your state or country of birth, will you need assistance at the polls, and are you interested in being a poll worker….next their are boxes to check if you an active duty military, merchant marine….a dependent of an active duty military/merchant marine….and finally a box to check if you are a US citizen residing outside the US….finally you sign your signature to the application and date it, and by signing the application, you are taking an oath……here is the oath……. Mama Mia And this is the gospel truth….Big Foot used to roam the area from the old Johns Nursery sloping downward toward Marshall Lake. You can see that area from the 429, or which is actually the 451. Yes, he roamed all around there, and it was true! Mama Mia Our City of Apopka election is March 13, 2018, so if you want to vote in the city election, you must go ahead and get registered as soon as possible because you have to be registered with the Orange County Florida Supervisor of Election office, ahead of time, 29 days prior to the city election. There is still time, but don’t delay! Go get your application, and mail it in, or register online ASAP!!! If you have never voted, I assure you will feel empowered, and important, to your first trip to the polls at any of the elections….you will feel PROUD!! I urge you to go get registered, and vote, it is more important than you realize!! It sounds lengthy, but it is so easy in reality…..Here is the phone number for the Orange County Florida Supervisor of Election Office….Area Code..(407) 836-2070. They will guide you through any questions you may have about registering for the first time to vote. Also here is the address to mail in your Florida Voter Registration Application….if you are in Apopka and Orange County this is the correct address to mail it in….Orange County Supervisor of Elections, P. O. Box 562001, Orlando, Florida 32856….if you are in another county or city be sure and get the correct mailing address on the back of the voter application…… Also if you are already a registered voter, I urge you to go to the Orange County Florida Supervisor of Elections website (Bill Cowles office) online, and enter your own name, and info to check the status of your voter’s registration, to see if it is still in active status. Also, you may need or want, to update some of your information, such as any name changes, address changes, or party affiliation changes. They will tell you what to do to change them, which is probably sending in a new application, and indicating your changes that you need to let them know about by checking the boxes and entering the new info. You can always call your county Supervisor of Election Office. I keep stressing Orange County Florida Supervisor of Election Office of Bill Cowles, if you are in Orange Co. Florida in Apopka, because when I used to type Orange County Supervisor of Elections website…I used to get California information, for their state, not Florida…LOL….make sure you got the right office for your city, county, and the right state!

That right there is a great reason to go get registered, among other reasons, but there will be many other important issues to vote on….I wish you the best, now go get registered, and vote your choice in these important elections coming up, and be a proud, and free empowered American! Reply Mama Mia December 12, 2017 at 2:26 pm Reply I have been looking for what the surprises were that was suppose to be talked about by the mayor at his speech, and I haven’t seen anything listed anywhere on the social media websites. That is strange. I think I know now, what the surprise is. Maybe, just maybe, the Loch Ness Monster turned up in the fishermen’s nets at Lake Apopka, when they were getting rid of Lake Apopka undesirable creatures, and the creature slipped back into the lake, before they could get it their hands of it, because it was so slimy….OH NO….BEWARE APOPKA! Mama Mia It is important for everyone to vote, who is eligible. So many issues, we the voters, are affected drastically by how our representatives, that we elect, conduct their jobs. This is whether you are voting locally, as in the City of Apopka municipal election, the Orange County elections, the State of Florida elections, or federal elections, whether electing Congressional members or the President! Their actions ALL affect us one way or the other…..!!! So I urge you to use YOUR POWER as a citizen, and get out and vote! Even if you are in a different city or a different county, it is of the utmost importance, as of being a citizen of this country…..it affects our health, wealth, or taxes, and so many other rights as a citizen! Don’t say your vote won’t count, it will count! Mama Mia December 12, 2017 at 5:16 pm What is the state of Apopka? Mama Mia December 12, 2017 at 8:54 pm Mama Mia December 12, 2017 at 2:58 pm Reply When you go online, or get your actual Florida Voter Registration Application where I told you to pick it up at, you will see people listed on the back of the application, who are exempt from having to provide a copy of an ID at this time. These exemptions are: Persons 65 years of age or older…..Persons with a temporary or permanent physical disability…….Members of the active uniformed service or merchant marine, who, by reason of such active duty, are absent from the county…..Spouse or dependent of an active uniformed service member or merchant marine who, by reason of the active duty or service of the member, is absent from the county….Persons currently residing outside the US, who are eligible to vote in Florida. I don’t like this cold weather! I just can’t get warm! I would really be bad off, if I was back where it used to snow and freeze with blizzards, where I grew up, when I was young. I take a blood stick sample to test my blood sugar, and I can’t hardly get my blood to come out, by squeezing it hard, it is froze up, I guess! I’m serious! Mama Mia Please enter your name here “Ramble on, now is the time to sing my song”……no four minute cut-offs on this website…. No gavels, on this website… No ” you’re out of order!” either, on this website. December 12, 2017 at 3:11 pm Mama Mia You know, how some fishermen get, after their 7am alcohol runs….. Like most things, it depends on who you ask.Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer will attempt to answer that question when he delivers the State of the City address this morning at 8AM at the Highland Manor, 604 E. Main Street in Apopka.“It’s a look-back and a look-ahead,” said Kilsheimer. “It sums up the past year and tells residents what to expect in the coming year.”Kilsheimer announced the State of the City at Wednesday’s City Council meeting and promised “surprises”. Those surprises will not be known until Kilsheimer takes the stage and delivers this historic speech. The content, surprises, and announcements will be unveiled then.This is the second State of the City address delivered by Kilsheimer, who is also the author of the speech. Last year he spoke for 35 minutes, laying out his accomplishments while in office and his vision for the future. The approximately 5,000-word address touched on several issues including business in Apopka, municipal government, public safety, city finances, grants, economic development, The City Center, The Highland Manor, growth, education, and even the environment.

There is actually a big blow- up inflatable, of a Christmas food truck, with Santa at the sale window, with an awning above the window, and it is called the la la la la la food truck, and has writings on the side of the truck, that show fish tacos for sale, hot cocoas, and something else for sale, I can’t remember, also had two penguins at the bottom. I have seen it all now….! If you go to Lowes, look way up high, it is up on a ledge. It would go nicely in the KLNP with the food truck nights. December 12, 2017 at 9:06 pm Okay, I am looking at the online Florida Voter Registration Application over, and so you won’t think I am telling you something that is incorrect, I am seeing when you check your race in the online application, there is a box to check multi-racial, and a box to check other, as well as the races I indicated in the up above posting….now the application I picked up, the paper version, did not have a multi-racial box to check, or other box to check, like the online version, so you won’t think I told you something that was incorrect. Also there are a lot of political parties, other than Dem. and Rep., but if you chose to not list a political party affiliation on your application, the voter office, will list you as NPA ( no party affiliation) Go get registered to vote, if you don’t like your political party you selected on your initial voter application filing, because you aren’t sure of what’s what, and new at this, you can always change it at a later date! The main thing is to go get registered now, before the 29 days prior to the election, so you can at least vote in the Apopka City Council election of March 13, 2018, as it is a non-partisan election anyway, meaning the council candidates aren’t voted for based on their political party such as Democrat, or Republican, for example.

Reading the signs: A bull snake, a mink, and an ant…

What had happened in that quiet spot? I could see that the snake had bled from several slight wounds, none serious enough to kill such a formidable adversary but then I looked closer at its head and there I saw the cause of its death.  Something had bitten through the snake’s head, probably piercing the brain. I carefully glanced over the battleground.That a battle had taken place was evident by the crushed grass, and there, in a small spot of black earth, just as sure as if the animal had signed its name was a single tiny footprint.  It was then that I noticed something else, a musky odor, unmistakable to anyone that has smelled it before: mink! From what I could see the mink had most likely approached the log from the small end.  It had leaped to the log and loped its length as it had probably done many times in the past for mink are creatures of habit, routinely retracing their tracks every few days.  That day a surprise awaited the mink.   When it leaped off the log it landed smack dab on top of that old bull snake just as I had, surprising the both of them. Reading the sign it was obvious the snake had thrown three coils of its powerful body around the mink but the mink, desperate, fighting for its life, had lunged, carrying the two of them rolling across a large anthill which had been crushed in the struggle.  Hundreds of carpenter ants were frantically working to repair the damage, but there, quite obvious and easy to read were the three grooves pressed into the anthill by the snake’s body.            This was an unequal struggle, sure to end in the mink serving as a meal except for one thing, the mink wasn’t about to say quit. Lunging, fighting for its life, the mink had obviously, perhaps with waning strength, bitten into the snake’s head, piercing the reptile’s brain.  Dead snake, live mink, such is the way of nature.  I stretched the snake out alongside the log and made marks where its tail and its head were so that when I returned I would have an accurate measurement as to the snake’s size. When I returned the next day the body of the snake was gone, most likely dragged off by a scavenging possum but I was surprised when I measured the distance between those two marks on the log.  Eight feet nine inches!   Much longer than I was tall at the time.I guess that is what reading the signs is all about, observing, and paying attention to what we see. The snake was gone; the crushed anthill was entirely repaired.  All that was left was a faint odor of mink musk on the air and soon even that would be gone.  All that would remain would be my memories, and I have them still.                                    AN OUTDOORSMAN’S PRAYER            “Dear Father God thank you for helping me to read the signs.   There have been so many times that I have been surprised by that old serpent, the devil, but you have always been there to keep me from permanent harm. Thank you for guiding me watching over me and for protecting me as I have walked through this life.  Help me to be more aware of you in my life than I am of some of the things that distract me from you.  Help me to remember that in order for you to be in my life I must invite you to accompany me.  Help me to remember the importance of prayer, and that genuine prayer is communication with you as a close dear and loving friend.  Bless me with a desire to read your word, for there I can learn your will for my life and realize that I am entirely dependent upon you.  In Jesus’ Wonderful Blessed and Holy name I ask it, Amen.”Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. July 23, 2018 at 12:27 pm July 23, 2018 at 6:59 pm Thanks a lot Donny. I imagine that is the greatest problem, most folks don’t look and they sure don’t listen. My father once told me “the greatest science is direct observation independent of theory.” Pretty good thinking for a third grade education I would say. You take care, Chaz It seems like you had such an adventurous childhood living on that island with all of your nature experiences and excursions. So many children and adults are cut off from nature these days. How nice it is to hear how much you loved it and lived in harmony with it! And all of the lessons it provided to you…that you now share with us. Thanks! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

The housing structure benefits from Bofill’s earlier research and the idea of providing public spaces and gardens for residents to enjoy an enhanced quality of living.Save this picture!© Denis EsakovRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesThe building consists of a fourteen story cluster of apartments grouped around five courtyards, on top of which are two swimming pools.

It is opened to the exterior through large overtures such as urban windows several stories in height. The courtyards have a lively treatment because of the intense blue, violet and yellow colored facade. The main courtyard, located at the building’s entrance, is an extension of the street and the plaza for the use of the inhabitants.

Eighteen towers, seven courtyards, a modular but unsystematic grid, and extensive public space create a vertical labyrinth with no repetitiveness or uniformity.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ricardo BofillResidential Architecture, Housing, Apartments•Sant Just Desvern, Spain ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/332142/ad-classics-walden-7-ricardo-bofill Clipboard “COPY” 1975 Spain AD Classics: Walden 7 / Ricardo Bofilllast_img read more

Mortgage Electronic Registration System (MERS) was named as the mortgagee on each mortgage deed. MERS remained the mortgagee when the original noteholders and their assignees (all members of MERSI) transferred the notes to the defendant, BAC Home Loans Servicing, which is also a member of MERS.According to the court ruling, when BAC accepted transfer of the notes, by operation of Kentucky law it acquired equitable interests in the mortgages securing the notes. BAC did not record their acquisitions of equitable interests in the mortgages with county records offices and the plaintiffs subsequently filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky at Lexington, alleging that “transfer of the notes was an assignment of the underlying mortgages for purposes of Kentucky’s recording statutes,” according to the filing.”We’re pleased that the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals held firm in its decision that the Kentucky recording statues do not require that promissory notes be recorded.”The district court originally ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, but the Sixth Circuit court reversed the district court’s decision. The Sixth Circuit Court ruled that BAC did not violate Kentucky law because they transferred only promissory notes, which are not required to recorded by law in Kentucky, and they did not fail to record any transfers of mortgage deeds.The Sixth Circuit Court on Friday denied two petitions to rehear the case, saying that “the original panel has reviewed the petitions for rehearing and concludes that the issues raised in the petitions were fully considered upon the original submission and decision of the cases.” The petitions had been circulated to the full court and no judge had requested a vote on the suggestion of an en banc rehearing; hence the two petitions were denied.”We’re pleased that the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals held firm in its decision that the Kentucky recording statues do not require that promissory notes be recorded,” MERSCORP Holdings VP for Corporate Communications Janis Smith said.Click here to view the entire court ruling.This is the fourth major court victory for MERS in just a little more than a month. In early September, a district court in Collin County, Texas, granted a motion for summary judgment in the favor of MERS and reinstated a MERS lien that had previously been extinguished. In mid-August, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee Nashville Division dismissed a lawsuit that challenged MERS’ role in a deed of trust in Tennessee. In early August, MERS was awarded a victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which ruled that MERS was not duty-bound by the Pennsylvania recording statute to record all land conveyances.

Bishop of Oxford snubbed by PM’s constituency office

first_imgDavid Cameron has drawn criticism after his Witney constituency office refused to open its doors for the Bishop of Oxford, who was delivering an open letter about food poverty.Three police officers prevented the Right Reverend John Pritchard, whose diocese seat is Christ Church Cathedral, and poverty activist Reverend Keith Hebden from entering the constituency building. Hebden expressed surprise, saying that the pair had phoned ahead to arrange a visit at the Witney office“The office did eventually acknowledge receipt of the letter over the intercom but said they would not open the door and speak to the Bishop of Oxford,” Hebden told Cherwell. “The police said they were there to ‘facilitate the protest’, however, there was no protest: we literally left the Methodist Church, walked up the road to the constituency office, delivered the letter and were about to leave when the police arrived.”Pritchard and Hebden’s letter, which was co-signed by 42 Anglican bishops and 600 clerics, expressed concern for the rising national demand for food banks as part of the End Hunger Fast campaign. The message referenced a recent study by the Trussell Trust, the UK’s largest food charity, which revealed a 163 percent increase in British people receiving emergency food since last year.Founding director of the Oxford Food Bank, David Cairns, acknowledged rising food need, but warned that such statistics may overexaggerate the seriousness of the crisis.The increasing sophistication of food banks over the past decade, Cairns explained, has led to charities reaching more people in need than ever before. For example, the Oxford Food Bank served £5,000 worth of food a week at its inception five years ago, but is now able to provide up to £20,000 a week due to a rapidly expanding volunteer and donor base.Cairns expressed hope that a recent parliamentary enquiry on the government’s role in food provision “will actually come up with true facts” about food charities’ contributions. “We try to keep politics out of food banks,” he told Cherwell.Keith Hebden, however, believed his and the Bishop of Oxford’s experience at the Prime Minister’s constituency proves differently.“Everything is political, so we can’t keep politics out of food banks. What we can do is try to rise above the political point scoring that stops progress,” he said, adding that End Hunger Fast’s letter was addressed to the leaders of the three major parties, not just Cameron.“Only one published an article that day saying he was a good Anglican, while his office called the police rather than welcome his bishop,” Hebden said, referencing Cameron’s recent editorial in the Church Times.“It’s disappointingly cynical of David Cameron to twice public declare an emotional commitment to the Church of England but refuse to acknowledge a letter signed by 47 Anglican Bishops and over 600 church leaders.”“We hope he will get around to replying sooner rather than later,” Hebden continued, adding that End Hunger Fast would continue to mobilise until the government addressed their concerns.“This is an urgent national crisis and we have the wit and resources to do something about it: we need to have a welfare state that cares for the most vulnerable, work that pays, and an answer to the problem of rising food prices.”last_img read more
