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. 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. I’ve recently been looking at some AIM shares to add more rapid growth to a portfolio that has, until recently, mainly been about large-caps. I’ll outline one or two shares from AIM that I think show initial promise, along with a share that has kept paying a dividend. An AIM share with great long-term potentialDiscoverIE (LSE: DSCV), formerly known as Acal, is a manufacturer of electrical components. It has a market cap at the time of writing of around £540m. It’s a share I’ve had my eye on for a long time, but I think it could well be added to my portfolio soon. The group is developing new five-year targets and wants to expand in North America and Asia.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…Financially I think it looks good and it has a return on capital employed (ROCE) of 16%. Profit margins have been rising steadily and were at 8.5% at the end of March.It intends to reinstate the dividend, which before Covid was growing at around 6% per annum, with cover between two to three times earnings.An AIM listed and undervalued tech shareIMImobile (LSE: IMO) is a little bit smaller than DiscoverIE. It has a market cap of around £340m. I think it might be undervalued for a technology company on a trailing P/E of around 24.The group is in cloud communications and personalised mobile messaging. It’s well aligned therefore with a growing trend for more and more mobile devices and data.The technology company has 46 clients that pay over £500,000 per annum for its services so it’s not a small player. It provides a service customers are willing to pay for – the basic hallmark of a good company.A positive September trading update shows that the company has the ability to grow at pace as gross profits rose 46%.As the tech group targets growth in the US, I’m looking more into the company with a view to adding the shares to my portfolio. Its best days could well be ahead of it and as such, I feel it might become a future growth star and a dividend-payer.The big FTSE 100 dividend stockLegal & General (LSE: LGEN) is very different to my first two shares. It’s more in the value and income category of shares. The share price has fallen by 40% this year. The result of that is the dividend yield is now around 9%.That would often be a warning to investors. I’m not sure in this instance it is as Legal & General has always paid out a high amount to shareholders. I think it’s more a consequence of the pandemic, rather than something to worry about.Indeed, I feel the high yield on offer is an opportunity. I think buying the shares much more cheaply now gives me a future income. Also, when we return to more normal conditions, and the economy and stock market recover, the shares could grow much quicker than the wider market. That’s because they’ve been out of favour. I already hold these shares and they’re quite a large part of my portfolio already, so I’ll probably only add a small amount.

Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Taking into account the city’s urban tissue, the project is the renovation of a Brussels typical terraced-house. Originally inhabited by a single family, the house appeared too big and difficult to take care of after the children grew up and left. The owner of the house then decided to sell the last two floors to a friend, in order for him to convert them into his own appartement. The architectural project consists in renovating and turning the existing single family terraced houseinto a building of two separate flats. Architects Edouard Brunet and François Martens teamed up in order to complete this relatively small yet ambitious project.Save this picture!Diagram – NowIn addition to 5 floors of approximately 45m2 each, the house has a rear facade looking towards the East, while the front facade looks towards the West. The two architects suggested to install the upper flat’s living area on the top floor of the house, as to limit nuisances between neighbours (bedrooms are placed on top of each other) but also to benefit from the light and open view that this floor offers. Because of the limited total surface area of each floor and the top floor being set up in the attic, it was decided to tear down the rear part of the roof. This allowed to build a terrace and a new cantilever space right where the former staircase lead to the top floor. The new staircase is set in the centre of the building.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThis setting allowed to upgrade the living area: direct access to the terrace, more daylight reaching further into the flat, new kitchen with an open view on the back gardens and yards, the sky and Brussels’ skyline. Besides providing an intimate outdoor area, the new terrace built in the existing house volume gives a new facade looking towards the South, letting daylight enter the kitchen for a large portion of the day.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThe new cantilever space’s style is purposely and visibly contemporary as well as uncluttered to distinguish it from the existing building: the city becomes the expression of various periods, such as a palimpsest would be. This frank intervention was made possible thanks to the existing rear facade’s lack of cultural heritage interest and its relative poor state. Building regulations were taken into account in the design of the project: direct views on neighbouring houses were avoided, distances and alignments were respected, etc.)Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetIn order to stress the sense of space, the top floor’s walls were torn down; the new mezzanine was suspended, to allow the overall attic volume to be seen. Each and every inch of the space is maximised, such as in Japanese or Dutch projects that the new owner presented as references to the architects. All necessary functions for the new flat are organised in one single piece of furniture set up throughout the floors and the rooms.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThe kitchen, the staircase, the toilets and the shower are put together to compose this piece of furniture, which circulate between the floors and the rooms, allowing for fluidity and thus alleviating the small surface areasinconvenience. Birchwood, a pale colour wood, was chosen to make this piece of furniture and create a warm atmosphere in the entire apartment. In comparison, the lower part of the house saw minor work which consisted in wood, iron and fitting works. To make the flats independent, a new suspended staircase was drawn and designed alongside the craftsperson who manufactured it. The bathroom was also entirely redesigned. The combination of bamboo and iron gives this part of the house a unique atmosphere.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThis project is the first collaboration between the two architects. It is the best example of their great attention to details as well as their constant search for clever solutions, regardless of any preconception yet within limited budgets. Their aim is to create spaces that offer light, views and noble material.Originally published on November 11, 2015Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetProject gallerySee allShow lessThe End of Sitting / RAAAFSelected ProjectsDA House / Bernardo Bustamante ArquitectosSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeEdouard BrunetOfficeFollowFrançois MartensOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationExtensionSchaerbeekIcebergBelgiumPublished on January 26, 2020Cite: “Terraced-House Renovation / Edouard Brunet + François Martens” 26 Jan 2020.

Also we love competition, we love hacking, the fact that it’s for a good cause makes it that much sweeter,” Jake Moghtader of Taboola said.The software engineers, designers, and innovators received a briefing on the current drought status from Los Angeles City Water and Power representative Richard F. Harasick as well as Wendy De Leon of Pasadena Water and Power.“Every drop really counts, every action that each consumer, each resident, each business takes will help us reach our overall goals to reduce water usage. I’m excited to see what these diversified minds come up with,” Wendy De Leon said.Harasick said that although LA has grown by 1 million people in the last four years, the water demand has stayed the same at 113 gallons per person per day.With fifty one percent of Pasadena’s water used by households, event coordinator Jay Baage hoped the created apps would be consumer friendly to help single-family households make a difference. Baage is the executive director of the Pasadena based advertising agenecy Ayzenberg.Discovering that the 42,000 swimming pools in the LA Basin contain 645 million gallons Catherine Rhee’s team found their niche. Titling their project “Water Flow Cash Money,” the app will concentrate on an alert system to remind pool owners to cover their pool.“Just by using a pool cover 90 percent of the evaporation can be saved. That’s a potential 700,000 gallons of annual savings simply by covering all the pools,” Rhee said.The app would also feature tips for how to maintain a pool and how much savings per month the consumer is making.Rhee enjoys the change of pace that the hackathon offers, “It’s good to come up for air every once and a while at events like this, I wanted to do something that was challenging and doing good at the same time.”Another team wanted to incentivize apartment owners to encourage tenants to reduce water usage by dropping rent incrementally. The rebate program would include the City helping pay the decreased rent.If a team creates a compelling product, the product has the opportunity to be developed or featured with any of the event partners OpenX, Ayzenberg, or for a Pasadena Water and Power campaign.Hosted inside the long time tech hub that houses Open X and formerly was the location of eharmony. Baage wanted it to be hosted inside a technology company like Open X to help show the community the great spaces that exist. Open X is on the corner of Walnut and Lake Ave.Director of OpenX Labs Caleb Sotelo, an avid backpacker, shared about a recent trip when he had to hike an extra five hours past his planned campsite recently because there was simply no water on the mountain.“This is the reality and we can do something about it,” Sotelo said.The competitors all used Angular, a JavaScript framework that makes it easy to create user interfaces and is used extensively at OpenX.All the developed apps will be judged by a panel according to creativity, usefulness, and potential impact.The winning team receives $1000 cash prizes, Moto 360 Smart Watches will be given to the runner up team, and a Fitbit for 3rd place.Coinciding with the hackathon, Innovate Pasadena also hosted a job fair that brought 13 high caliber companies to recruit the tech talent of Pasadena including Warner Bros, Fox Digital Network, Sony, Spokeo, OpenX, Ayzenberg and YP.The City of Pasadena will host a community event about water on August 13 at Brookside Park from 6:30-8:30. The City will also host the first grey water workshop on August 29 at Lake Avenue Church.

#Watch Aviation policy needed to rebalance growth

first_imgWhatsApp Advertisement Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Print Twitter Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live NewsPoliticsVideo#Watch Aviation policy needed to rebalance growthBy Staff Reporter – July 15, 2018 1177 Email TAGSClareeconomylimerickpoliticsShannon airport center_img Linkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook AN aviation policy that helps attract investment to Shannon and other regional airports is the only way to rebalance the country in terms of economic growth.Speaking to the Limerick Post, Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin said that the biggest problem in transport and aviation sector is the lack of decision making by Transport Minister Shane Ross.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Asked about the need for an aviation policy to support growth outside Dublin, Deputy Martin said that although Dublin needs a second runway the planning restrictions around the first runway indicated that even if the second runway was built, there would be three million fewer passengers going through Dublin.“Shane Ross has stalled on making a decision on that for the last 18 months because I don’t think he gets the regions and that is a problem.“I know there has been growth in Shannon Airport this year and that is a very positive sign. Shannon has a unique edifice now in terms of the Shannon Authority because both Shannon and Cork have huge roles to play in terms of rebalancing the country.“Dublin is absorbing any significant growth in terms of GDP every year – some 40 per cent of the country’s GDP is located in the Dublin region while London would be 20 per cent of the UK – so it is out of kilter as to how a country should develop.“Shannon and Cork Airports are key to both regions because the Cork-Limerick-Galway axis is the key to rebalancing the country through the motorway, stronger collaborations between the research facilities and universities throughout the region which will provide a counterbalance to the East Coast.“However, we can’t do that unless we have continued investment in the regional airports,” he concluded.
