“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by James J. McCombie Battery-poweredRenewable sources of energy are intermittent; electricity is only produced when the wind blows, the sun is out, and the rivers are full. Fossils fuels or nuclear power can step in to bridge gaps in supply, or water pumped high for later release, but suitable batteries will unlock renewables potential. Lithium-ion batteries are great, but suffer from short lives and can generate a lot of heat. Redox flow batteries are better suited to large scale applications like powering factories and running electricity grids. Vanadium looks to be the best metal to use in redox flow batteries. In fact, National Grid has deployed them already in its U.S. operations.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…Got the mineralsBuying Bushfield Minerals shares gains exposure to a business with significant scale in its industry and low-cost production. Vertically scaling up the VRFB value chain should also boost margins. Bushveld signed a joint venture agreement on 9 March to supply an electrolyte of the vanadium it mines to Invinity Energy Systems for their vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs). Bushveld also holds influential stakes in both Invinity and Enerox, a Germany-based manufacturer of VRFBs. Besides its use in VRFBs, vanadium finds itself used in alloys for tools, construction, and turbine blades. However, Bushveld is positioning itself for the anticipated increased demand for use in VRFBs. Vanadium prices slumped in 2019, but have recovered. Increased demand for use in batteries should support prices in the long term. Also, a healthy VFRB market will see Bushveld’s investments in manufacturers of the technology do well.Share price bargain?Bushveld is not an exploration company, hoping to strike gold. It is an established outfit with history. The last published full-year financial results are from the year ended in 2018 when revenues and profits were $192m and $49m respectively. An update for 2019 reveals revenues are lower at $111.1m, unsurprising given the vanadium price woes, but is silent on profits. They will undoubtedly have fallen, which would put the trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratio for the stock at 5.04, which looks very cheap, and misleading. However, even a 75% fall in profits would only lift the P/E to 20 or so, which is not extreme.The coronavirus crisis has hurt production at Bushveld. Still, management is confident that they have enough cash and credit facilities to survive. Even South Africa’s volatile electricity grid, which forced reductions in power consumption for Bushveld in 2019, did not hurt production.Overall, Bushveld Minerals looks like a well-run mining company. But that is not what is driving the buzz around its share price. The coronavirus crisis should help focus minds on the looming climate one. VRFBs look ideal for greening up electricity grids, with industry analysts expecting them to do just that. Therefore Bushveld Minerals share price could be fully charged and ready to fly. If not then there is still a decent vanadium business there, which does make Bushfield a safer bet than the VRFB producers themselves.

Windows will also be replaced with energy efficient windows, the statement said.All plumbing and electrical systems, including the emergency generator and the fire alarm system, will be replaced. The existing emergency-call system will be upgraded and a new security system will be installed.“This 149-unit apartment building has been part of the RHF family of affordable housing communities for older adults since 1989,” Dr. Laverne Joseph, RHF President and CEO, said. “With assistance from the City of Pasadena, RHF was able to purchase the building in 1989 while the City retained ownership of the land. We are very pleased to have worked with the City to acquire the land and obtain financing for the acquisition as well as funding to upgrade the Concord. RHF has committed to rent restrictions for the next 55 years so we can continue to serve older adults and persons with disabilities for many more years.”Individual apartment improvements will include replacing all kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops, new plumbing fixtures, new kitchen appliances, new air conditioning and heating units, replacing all flooring, window coverings, and converting bathtubs to walk-in showers. All lighting, appliances and HVAC units will be energy efficient, the plans showed.Ten percent of the units will be modified as “accessible units” to accommodate persons with disabilities.Funding for the financing and the renovation of The Concord was provided by the City of Pasadena, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, California Statewide Communities Development Authority, Wells Fargo and Citibank.RHF, which runs the residence, is one of the nation’s largest non-profit organizations that provides housing and services for more than 22,500 older adults, low-income families and persons with disabilities.

Limerick really responded to this appeal and we filled one container to be shipped to Democratic Republic of Congo and any boxes we couldn’t fit in that container went to Odessa in the Ukraine”.And with Christmas creeping up fast, the volunteers are now asking that schools, businesses, book, clubs, friends and individuals get busy putting a gift-box together again to make this a bumper year for needy children.This simple practical act of kindness, with people all over Ireland wrapping and filling an ordinary shoebox, can mean “the whole of Christmas wrapped up in a shoebox.”, said Carol Hennessey, National Christmas Shoebox Appeal Manager.Appeal leaflets, containing information about what is suitable to pack in the box are available online at www.teamhope.ie/christmas-shoebox-appeal.

He had never seen so many toys that were all for him.”To date, more than 3.5 million children have received a shoebox gift from Ireland. The boxes go to children living on the margins of society, often on less than a €1 a day, who think they’ve been forgotten. Very often it’s the first time for many of these children to receive a gift, which gives them dignity and hope.The deadline for drop-off is Friday, November 10 and boxes can be sent to AXA; FastFit/FirstStop branches and Toymaster stores.Details of local Drop-Off points will be available online at www.teamhope.ie Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live WhatsApp Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash

Facebook Pinterest Twitter Peloton magazine, a highly respected source of inspirational storytelling and photography about the sport of cycling. With respect to Outside TV, the closing of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval by the FCC of certain license transfer. The company expects the acquisition to close in the second quarter. The company also announced that it has changed its name from Pocket Outdoor Media to Outside. These acquisitions were made possible by the closing of a Series B financing from investment partners that include Sequoia Heritage, JAZZ Ventures, Zone 5 Ventures, and NEXT Ventures. The financing and acquisition transactions will enable the company to make significant investments in audience, technology, and product development . Cooley LLP and Progress Partners advised the company with respect to the transactions. Said Michael Moritz, who will be joining the Outside board of directors: “We’re investing in Outside because the management team has warmly embraced the future of information and entertainment on the internet. Just like Netflix and Amazon Prime, Outside will create and distribute distinctive content to a worldwide audience on any connected device. Better still, Outside will turbocharge the online programming of many of the most-loved fitness and health brands. As a longtime journalist and former ink-stained wretch, I’m now being granted the opportunity to start a new chapter—as a digital-stained wretch.” The deals create a platform whose scale across television, mobile, desktop, and print is unparalleled in the outdoor, endurance, fitness, and wellness markets. The new additions join existing brands such as SKI, Yoga Journal, Women’s Running, Triathlete, Backpacker, Climbing, Clean Eating, VeloNews, Trail Runner, FinisherPix, Warren Miller Entertainment, and more. “This is a transformational day for our company and our customers,” said Robin Thurston, CEO of the new Outside. “Everything we do is driven by a belief that a hike, run, ride, or yoga practice can change your life, and these new brands will help us fulfill our mission to build the world’s best consumer experience across a wide range of activities.” “Each of these brands brings unique and powerful strengths to our network,” Thurston added. “The incredible reputation and relevance of the Outside brands across multiple lifestyle categories made our decision to change our company’s name a logical choice. Meanwhile, Gaia GPS and athleteReg significantly boost the ways we facilitate participation through best-in-class tools and services. And as a lifelong cyclist, I’m personally thrilled to welcome Peloton, one of my go-to reads for its evocative celebrations of the sport. With these moves, we can now deliver world-class content 24/7 to almost every home in America across every platform, screen, and device. My team and I are deeply honored to help write the next chapter for these iconic businesses.” “Like Robin, I’ve always believed in the power of great storytelling,” said Larry Burke, founder, Chairman, and Editor-in-Chief of Outside Integrated Media, which reaches 38 million people a month across all platforms . “When we published our first issue of Outside magazine in 1977, we helped give birth to what is now a $887 billion outdoor industry, and we’ve been pioneering the art of adventure ever since. Our stories have won awards in print, video, and film, and we’ve inspired millions of people to ‘live bravely.’ It’s everything I could’ve wanted to do with my life, and I’m delighted to find such a good home for Outside among POM’s outdoor brands.” Burke, who won the Outdoor Industry Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019, is set to tackle his next project—a book about his life—while continuing to pursue his passion for living an active outside life. The new businesses will continue operating out of their existing locations and will immediately begin working on a range of synergies that the company’s technology platform makes possible. Most significantly, the acquisitions bring new benefits to the company’s Active Pass membership, a fast-growing, $99 per year offering that gives consumers access to hundreds of dollars in value in the form of premium digital content, print subscriptions, event entries and photography, books, gear discounts, a personalized feed, and interactive experiences with editors, pro athletes, coaches, and other experts.

He contended that 1) The applicant and his children hold a belief that it is a compelling precept of their faith that a secular object must not be saluted. 2) The compulsion on his children to salute the national flag violates his parental right to determine, in accordance with his religious belief, his children’s moral and religious upbringing. 3) Compelling all schoolchildren, regardless of religious persuasion, to say the words “Almighty God, in whose hands our future lies” in the recitation of the pledge, violates the fundamental right to freedom of religion of the school children who do not share the religious belief embodied in the word.Allowing the petition, the 9 judge bench of the Court unanimously held thus:”The policy and the actions of the education authorities of compelling all schoolchildren, regardless of religious affiliation, to salute the national flag and to say the words “Almighty God, in whose hands our future lies” as part of the recitation of the schools’ national pledge of allegiance (“the pledge”) infringed the right to freedom of religion of the applicant’s children, enshrined in s 60(1) of the Constitution; the applicant’s parental right, enshrined in s 60(3) of the Constitution; and the right to freedom of religion of children who belong to faiths that do not embrace the belief in the existence of God or in the existence of a god at all, enshrined in s 60(1) of the Constitution.”Following are some of the significant observations made in the judgment authored by the Chief Justice Malaba. The judgment makes references to Indian Supreme Court judgments viz. Bijoe Emmanuel v. State of Kerala and Kesavananda Bharati v State of Kerala.Loyalty and unity cannot be demanded in violation of fundamental rightsThe benefits alleged to accrue to society from the compulsory flag salute do not justify the correlative violation of an individual’s freedom. Loyalty and unity cannot be demanded in violation of fundamental rights; they can only be attained by the exercise of an individual’s volition.Any dominance of a faith would be unjustA schoolchild, whose conscience dictates that he or she should not salute the national flag during the recitation of the pledge because doing so is contrary to his or her religious belief, would find it difficult to act in accordance with the dictates of his or her conscience because of the position of subordination to authority in which he or she is placed. He or she would also find it difficult to act in accordance with the dictates of his or her conscience because of the compulsion imposed on him or her by the policy and the governmental action to recite the pledge and to salute the flag. The schoolchild is then forced to act contrary to his or her conscience. No constraint of conscience can be appropriate. Any dominance of a faith would be unjust, for faith ought to be free of all subjection to humans. Faith knows subjection only to its own rules or fundamental doctrines.Objective of instilling Patriotism can be achieved infringement of the right to freedom of religion The objective of instilling in schoolchildren the values of patriotism, national identity, honesty and hard work can be achieved without infringement of the right to freedom of religion of the schoolchildren participating in the recitation of the pledge. Good citizenship in a secular society does not necessitate the abandonment of religious discipline. Patriotism is a heritage that every nation must pass on to its children if it has pride in itself as an independent and sovereign nation of people who share common values and aspirations enshrined in a constitution which defines its destiny. Patriotism entails the appreciation and upholding of the foundational constitutional principles and values of nationhood, which include the plurality and diversity of religions and religious beliefs characteristic of Zimbabwean society. Compulsion as employed in the pledge was not a permissible means for achieving its legitimate objective of inculcating in schoolchildren feelings of patriotism The State cannot compel a person to perform acts which are forbidden by the religion he or she belongs to. The duty to say the words exalting God in the pledge would seriously impair the freedom of religion of the schoolchildren who do not hold the religious belief embraced by the words “Almighty God, in whose hands our future lies”. The coercion on the schoolchildren to say the religious words offends the religious beliefs of the schoolchildren who belong to religions that do not espouse the belief in God, His oneness and His power to directly and actively influence human life. It offends the schoolchildren who belong to religions that espouse belief in the existence of more than one god. It offends those schoolchildren who, whilst believing in the existence of a supernatural power, do not believe in that force in the form of a god. It also offends the schoolchildren who do not hold belief in the existence of a supernatural power. Their belief begins and ends with the existence of a human being as a matter of fact. They do not hold a spiritual belief in the existence of a supernatural being arising from seeking to find answers to the question of how the human being came to be in existence in the first place. The compulsion suggests to the schoolchildren who hold polytheistic religious beliefs or nontheistic beliefs that their beliefs are inherently less religious than the theistic ones embraced by the pledge. At best, there is an unconscious bias against nontheistic religions and their beliefs in the adoption as part of the pledge a statement that has as its content acceptance in the existence of God and exaltation of His powers.The impression likely to be created in the children’s minds would be that for one to become the ideal person who lives according to the values and principles espoused by the pledge, one has to be a believer in the features of the monotheistic religions represented in the words “Almighty God, in whose hands our future lies”. The children may think that one may not embrace the values of patriotism and national identity without at the same time being a holder of the belief in the existence of God. Schoolchildren may begin to believe that the future at the school, for anyone who refused to say the religious words forming part of the pledge for reasons of a coerced conscience, would be in jeopardy at the displeasure of God in whose hands the future of every person is said to lie. Participation in the recitation of the pledge would, in the circumstances, be out of fear that one’s future at the school would be imperilled.CASE : MATHEW SOGOLANI vs. MINISTER OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION [Const.
