And the ISA allowance renews on 6 April. So I’m topping up to make the most of my existing 2020/21 allowance.Structural growth drives this UK shareOne stock I’m keen on is FTSE 100 packaging company DS Smith (LSE: SMDS). The business suffered a dent in profits last year because of the pandemic. However, City analysts expect a bounce-back in earnings in the trading year to April 2022 of around 20%.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…Looking ahead, the outlook is optimistic. DS Smith supplies the fast-moving consumer goods and e-commerce sectors where it is seeing decent long-term growth. In December, the firm said it is “excited” about the structural growth drivers for the corrugated packaging it supplies. And “a number” of trends have been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.The business is expanding abroad and there’s been decent progress in the US. But constant reinvestment in operations has led to a fair pile of debt on the balance sheet. And, of course, DS Smith isn’t the only player in the packaging sector. It’s possible that competition could affect profits in the years ahead.Nevertheless, with the share price near 406p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is just over 14 for the trading year to April 2022. And the anticipated dividend yield is around 3.5%. That valuation looks fair rather than cheap to me. But I’m tempted to embrace the risks and hold the stock as part of a long-term diversified portfolio.A strong niche in a defensive sectorI think DS Smith could sit well alongside a few shares in FTSE 250 company Tate & Lyle (LSE: TATE). The firm provides food and beverage ingredients to industrial markets worldwide. And in February, it posted an 8% increase in overall revenue for the three-month period to 31 December 2020.Despite the pandemic, the company expects the full-year adjusted profit before tax to come in “modestly ahead” of the prior year. The trading year ends on 31 March and the directors predict that adjusted earnings per share will be “well ahead” compared to the year before.I think the expected figures demonstrate the resilience of the business. The food sector has defensive characteristics, and Tate & Lyle occupies a strong niche within it. We can see evidence of the stability of the business in the multi-year record of operating cash flow. And this has led to a dividend rising by modest low-single-digit percentages each year.With the share price near 746p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is a little over 13 for the trading year to March 2022. And the anticipated dividend yield is around 4%. I’m tempted to buy the stock and hold for the dividend. However, the rate of dividend growth has been pedestrian. And earnings have been volatile in the past, despite the steady cash flow.I think the biggest risk with Tate & Lyle is the slow pace of growth. If cash flow and earnings slip, I could see the valuation contract. And I’d then likely lose money from the falling share price even if the firm keeps up the dividend payments. Nevertheless, I see the company as a solid dividend payer and would be glad to have the stock in my ISA now.

It was Williams’ sixth-straight double-double dating back to last season when he had a double-double in each of the five NIT games to conclude the season.“It was an ugly win, but we got the job done,” guard Kenrich Williams said.”I’ll do what I do.”Senior forward Vladimir Brodziansky led the Horned Frogs in scoring with 16 points.

Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden Introduces Legislation to Protect Children with Autism

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Top of the News Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden introduced legislation, AB 1715, that protects children with autism and other individuals receiving behavior analytic services. The bill ensures that only qualified professionals can provide this vulnerable population with quality care.As health plans are now mandated to cover behavioral treatment for autism, demand for applied behavior analysis services has significantly increased,” said Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden. “Given the increase, we must protect autistic children, as well as others who can benefit from behavior analytic services, from those who falsely claim that they are qualified to practice behavior analysis.”According to Autism Speaks, a world leading science and advocacy organization dedicated to treating autism, intensive applied behavior analysis treatment – designed and supervised by a qualified professional behavior analyst – can produce meaningful improvements in the overall functioning of young children with autism. Alternatively, studies have shown that early behavioral interventions by unqualified individuals produced little to no improvements in young children with autism.“At present there are no laws that clearly require that individuals document and demonstrate training and competence in applied behavior analysis in order to practice in this state, and no entity within California that has legal authority to directly regulate the practice of applied behavior analysis,” said Matt McCalear, Executive Director for California Association of Behavior Analysis.By creating a regulatory structure to license behavior analysis professionals under the existing Board of Psychology, AB 1715 aims to give consumers the same level of protection as other similar professions that are licensed and regulated in California. The bill will require applicants for licensure to meet specified education, experience, and certification requirements. 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment Your email address will not be published.

The Design Commission will be reviewing the latest design at its Sept. 8 meeting.“At the June 26, 2018 meeting, the Design Commission determined the height, site design, massing and parking configuration were acceptable, but were unable to approve the project due to concerns about the fenestration, exterior cladding, garden programming and general architectural design and decided to continue the review,” according to a staff report.Although a formal review of the project was not conducted at the design commission meeting in 2018, several of the commission members made general comments indicating their reasoning and support for calling the staff decision for review, including a suggestion to reorient some of the third story balconies toward the east, and further explain the design evolution and choices which led to the selection of the dual driveway configuration.“The project was next considered at the September 11, 2018 meeting, at which time the Design Commission again decided to continue the item in order to allow the applicant additional time to continue to revise the design and address issues with the fenestration and architectural design, with the assistance of a sub-committee,” the staff report read.After the developer made minor modifications to the plans, staff did not hear back from the applicant team for some time and informed them that the project would be administratively withdrawn due to inactivity in November 2019.The applicant informed the city they wanted to continue with the project and subsequently met with staff several times to review the project and has requested that the Design Commission consider the project, as revised.According to a staff report, “The applicant has simplified the overall design.” Community News Bellevue Project Back At Design Commission – Again Project faced administrative withdrawal in 2019 By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Thursday, September 17, 2020 | 2:19 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena More Cool Stuff Your email address will not be published.

Body temperature predicts maximum microsatellite length in mammals

first_imgA long-standing mystery in genome evolution is why short tandem repeats vary so much in length and frequency. Here, we test the hypothesis that body temperature acts to influence the rate and nature of slippage-based mutations. Using the data from both 28 species where genome sequencing is advanced and 76 species from which marker loci have been published, we show that in mammals, maximum repeat number is inversely correlated with body temperature, with warmer-blooded species having shorter ‘long’ microsatellites.

first_imgA key plank in the industry’s efforts to standardise property information across the sector has been revealed.The Home Buying & Selling Group (HBSG), which has been tasked with helping implement the many initiatives that Ministers are keen to see introduced to improve sales progression, has now published its Buying and Selling Property Information (BASPI) dataset.For the fist time, this will introduces a single form for agents to complete when marketing begins that will be automatically updated with Local Authority data.Each property’s BASPI will then be shared with all the stakeholders in the buying process including lenders and valuers.Two sectionsIt will include two sections, one covering the ‘material facts’ required under consumer protection regulations and a second covering the remaining conveyancing due diligence.Agents are being urged to lobby proptech firms and CRM providers to add BASPI to their systems because, once implemented, almost overnight duplication with the process will be eliminated.BASPI will be used by agents to fill in their material facts disclosure, solicitors to complete the TA6 Property Information reform, by lenders to finish their lending policy checks and valuers to fill in their pre-valuation templates.Kate Faulkner (pictured), Chair of the Home Buying and Selling Group (HBSG), says: “This is a major step forward in trying to make life better for those moving home.“Far too often sales fall through after an offer is accepted due to a lack of information provided to the buyer and part of the reason for moving home taking 20 weeks is that we don’t collate enough information upfront.”See the BASPI form here.Read more about property information.baspi Home Buying and Selling Group (HBSG) kate faulkner March 15, 2021Nigel Lewis5 commentsAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 16th March 2021 at 1:16 pmGreat just what the real estate industry of 2021 needs another piece of paper that requires a biro. If the pandemic has one silver lining it is that analogue is the old order and digital is the new – and paper well that belongs in the digital waste bin. Of the 312 Proptech founders I have met – not one has suggested a ‘paper document’ as the way to move the industry on – I think they realise that Gen-Z are more likely to own a mobile than a ball point pen.Log in to ReplyAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 16th March 2021 at 1:13 pmGreat just what the teal estate industry of 2021 needs another piece of paper that requires a biro.

Agents hold more sway than any other party as they are the first stop for most home movers. We all need to make the whole process more inclusive and transparent – it’s not all down to the conveyancers.Log in to ReplyTimothy Main, PIP Ltd PIP Ltd 16th March 2021 at 10:50 amWell done the HBSG for leading all this work. When I was an estate agent I collected much of this information and it sat in my file. All this information can now be shared with potential buyers through a PIP Vault. Looking forward to quicker exchanges and less fall throughs.Log in to ReplyAdam McHenry, Cadman Homes Cadman Homes 16th March 2021 at 10:44 amGREAT IDEA.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
