Investor sentiment towards the online delivery group has improved dramatically since the beginning of the year.The massive shift in consumer behaviour brought on by the coronavirus crisis has helped the company gain market share and move closer to its long-term profitability goals. However, after its recent performance, the Ocado share price looks a bit on the pricy side. So, should investors wait for a pullback before buying into this growth story? 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…Ocado share price growthThe Ocado share price currently values the business at £16bn. That seems like a lot for a company that has yet to produce any profits or cash flow. However, the business does have tremendous potential. Its latest trading update revealed the group had more than 1m people on a waiting list for its UK grocery service. On top of this, sales in the six months to the end of May increased 27% year-on-year. Thanks to larger order baskets and efficiencies across the group, earnings before interest tax depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) at Ocado’s UK retail business jumped 87% in the first six months of its current financial year. Unfortunately, after taking out financing costs and depreciation and amortisation, the group reported a substantial loss for the first half of the year. Ocado lost a total of £41m. On top of this cash outflow, the company also devoted £219m to capital spending. Despite the company’s losses, its recent performance shows the retailer is becoming a feature of the UK grocery market. This could have a significant positive impact on the Ocado share price in the long term. Technology championOn top of the company’s UK retail business, it’s also a leader in the provision of technology solutions for international retailers. The group designs and develops robotic warehouses for retailers around the world.The global pandemic has accentuated the need for these sorts of solutions. That’s the main reason why investors have been buying the Ocado share price this year. As such, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ocado signs a range of new deals in the months and years ahead as retailers look to future proof themselves from future outbreaks. This technology gives the company a substantial competitive advantage in the global retail industry. All in all, Ocado is one of the UK’s fastest growing retailers. It’s also a world-beating technology company. These qualities could mean the Ocado share price is highly attractive for long-term investors. The business may rack up further losses in the short term, but its focus on investment over probability could pay off in the long run. If the group’s technology becomes highly sought after in the global retail community, it could also become a takeover candidate. The world’s largest tech firms may want to get in on the action here, especially those with a retail operation who want to reduce costs and streamline distribution. Image source: Getty Images.

A backyard flock ensures a steady supply of fresh eggs on the family dinner table. To sell those eggs, Georgia requires the eggs be evaluated by a certified grader and appropriately packaged and labeled in accordance with the Georgia Egg Law and Georgia Food Act.Most people refer to an egg grader’s certificate as a “candling license.” To help backyard flock owners prepare to sell their eggs, the University of Georgia Extension offers egg-candling classes in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA).The McDuffie County Extension is sponsoring a class on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at the historic McDuffie County Courthouse at 337 Main St. in Thomson, Ga. Bradley Brown, GDA north district food safety manager, will teach the class in four sessions set to begin at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. Participants select which session they would like to attend.The focus of the class is grading certification, but instructors will answer other questions participants have about selling eggs from their small flock. To sell home-harvested eggs to individuals or at a farmers market, the seller must hold an egg-candling certificate. To sell eggs to a grocery store, bakery or restaurant, the GDA Consumer Protection Division must license the seller’s facilities. There is no charge to attend a two-hour session, but registration is required—call (770) 535-5955. Participants will receive study information prior to the class and are encouraged to read through the information carefully. For more information, call the GDA at (770) 535-5955 and ask for Brown or Tina Maples. For directions to the class, contact the McDuffie County Extension Office at (706) 595-1815.
August 1, 2000 Regular News International Law Section to match interns with firms There you are, minding your own legal business and suddenly a client calls, frantic. It seems the client has an unexpected foreign business opportunity and your law firm is needed to negotiate a deal. In Thai. Or maybe Hindi. Or even Dutch. What do you do? Be thankful for the work of the International Law Section. Because of the section’s work, you could be only a mouse click away from finding a law student intern with a variety of special skills. That includes some who speak rather esoteric languages, including Afrikaans, Creole, and Czech, as well as Thai, Hindi and Dutch. It’s all part of the section’s effort to use technology to offer better services to its members. “We’re going to take advantage of the new technologies to reach out to our members,” said new section Chair Todd Kocourek, at the section executive council meeting during the Bar’s Annual Meeting. The chosen avenue for the coming year will be improving the section’s website (www.lex-fl.org). “I hope we’ll make its usefulness hit a point at which the membership will default to the website as the best source of information about what’s going on,” he said. One part of that is a new section of the website to match up law students seeking internships and law firms. “We now have an internship database,” said immediate past Chair Thomas Raleigh. “We are making available to students a link with Florida law firms and Florida businesses interested in international law and business. It’s a very simple procedure and there’s no cost to it.” Students list their background and special qualifications — including foreign languages — and prospective employers can scan their resumes. Those employers are also encouraged to list information on the site for students to review. Even if they don’t have an immediate opening, Raleigh said, it could be valuable to at least put general information about the firm on the site for students to review. The site is password protected and both students and potential employers must register. Students cannot see other students’ resumes, and employers cannot see what openings other firms are offering. Those seeking more information about the service should send an e-mail to [email protected] Raleigh said the section has been working to make the website more useful for members. It now includes a list of section committees and members, an archive of its quarterly newsletter, a bulletin board for messages between members and a listing of useful resources. The section is also living up to its name in a variety of activities. Raleigh and Kocourek noted that the head of the Mexican bar association was a section guest during the January Midyear Meeting. And the section has a relationship with the Barcelona Bar Association, and also just completing a successful seminar in Quebec City. The section is already planning another Canadian program. It also recently completed a successful seminar in Miami on Latin American issues, and will have a joint meeting with the International Bar Association in Cancun in 2001. On other matters, Raleigh said the section is in the very first stages of examining the relationship between The Florida Bar and foreign lawyers working in this country. While the Bar has offered the category of Foreign Legal Consultant for several years, Raleigh said, the section is exploring whether that is sufficient. “We’re looking at the next step on how to encourage the admission of foreign lawyers to The Florida Bar,” he said. “It’s in the very early stages. We’re looking at how they could be admitted, and they would still have to satisfy the character review.” International Law Section to match interns with firms

Making the leap from renting to buying is thrilling and liberating — for many, it signifies the realization of “the American Dream.”Buying a home is also a long-term commitment, and one that requires strong financial standing.If any of these signs strike a chord, you may want to delay taking on a mortgage in the near future. You have a low credit scoreBefore considering home ownership, you’ll want to check your credit score, which you can do through free sites like Credit Karma, Credit.com, or Credit Sesame.“The higher your score, the better the interest rate on your mortgage will be,” writes personal finance expert Ramit Sethi in “I Will Teach You To Be Rich.” Good credit can mean significantly lower monthly payments, so if your score is not great, consider delaying this big purchase until you’ve built up your credit. continue reading » 36SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
18 Aug 2017 Club golf pair win national women’s title Club golfers Chris Mitchell and Brenda Smith are the national winners of England Golf’s Australian Spoons competition. The pair, from South Cerney Golf Club near Cirencester, came through club and regional qualifying rounds to win the national final of the women’s stableford foursomes competition. It was a second national title in three days for Chris, who teamed up with two other women on Wednesday to win a national bowls title. “This has really topped the week off,” she said after the Australian Spoons success. The final was played at Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, as part of England Golf Week, a five-day festival which celebrates the handicap game. Chris and Brenda represented the South West and they took on the challenge of pairs from five other regions – and triumphed. They played the Bracken course and won by two points from Lynne Southgate and Karen Smith of Burstead Golf Club, Essex; and from Susan Franklin and Barbara Kelsey of Wishaw, Warwickshire. “It’s absolutely amazing,” said Brenda, who plays off 20. “We were absolutely shocked to win the regional final and now we’re bowled over to win this. We are delighted, chuffed to bits.” Chris is a 17-handicapper. The other finalists were Elaine Lilley and Jacqui Francis of Belton Woods, Lincolnshire; Allena Doley and Linda Fossey of Meon Valley, Hampshire and Lindsey Withers and Sharon Hodgkiss of Hazel Grove, Cheshire. All the finalists were the overnight guests of England Golf and enjoyed a gala dinner before their final. “We have just so enjoyed the two days, the whole experience has been absolutely overwhelming,” said Brenda.

7 December 2015A state-of-the-art facility to produce nano-structured materials for industrial testing was opened at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in Pretoria on 3 December.The Nanomaterials Industrial Development Facility was opened by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) in partnership with the council. The new establishment will benefit the plastics and cosmetics industries, among others, to develop new nanotechnologies and processes. Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor said it would provide the capabilities for the industrial-scale production of nano-structured materials.“All the facilities supported under the Industry Innovation Programme, including the Nano-materials Industrial Development Facility, have the potential to play a role in the development of high-technology small, medium and micro enterprises,” she said. “This facility could enable such enterprises to take advantage of the rapidly growing international market in nano-structured materials and nano-composites.”Some of the activities of the nanomaterials centre at the @CSIR @dstgovza #ncnsm pic.twitter.com/B9QVWlLKMx— Veronica Mohapeloa (@MaVeroza) December 3, 2015About nanomaterialsNanomaterials are chemical substances or materials that are manufactured and used at a very small scale – they can be scaled down to 10 000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.They are developed to display new characteristics, such as increased strength, chemical reactivity or conductivity, compared to the same material without the nanoscale feature.How the centre will helpThe newly launched centre will assist to increase overall industry competitiveness.The plastics industry is one sector that will reap rewards from the facility. “The addition of nanomaterials in the manufacturing of plastics can significantly enhance the mechanical properties of plastics,” said the CSIR. “Plastics can, for example, be made stronger, lighter and more fire and ultraviolet resistant.”Min Pandor gets an explanation of how this machine works with nanoclays at the Nanomaterial centre @csir @dstgovza pic.twitter.com/UyiuxQM3ZI— Veronica Mohapeloa (@MaVeroza) December 3, 2015“Addressing the technological development of the plastics industry will enable the industry to keep up with international trends, both in the level of advanced materials used, and in the machines and processes used to produce plastic components and systems,” it added./p>The CSIR performed research to stimulate and improve the competitiveness of industry and thereby contribute to the economy of the country, explained the council’s chief executive officer, Dr Sibusiso Sibisi.“We need to think differently,” he said. “We need to explore new ways and mechanisms to enter areas of activities such as the beneficiation of our natural resources to create jobs, manufacture high-end components and export them.”The facility houses infrastructure processing and testing and it will play a crucial role in developing skills and transferring technologies to industry.Rising fieldThe international market in nano-structured materials and nanocomposites was growing rapidly, said the CSIR. Nanoclay composites are expected to increase from a 2011 volume of 24 million to 74 million metric tonnes and a global value of $3-billion by 2016.In South Africa, the total plastic consumption is in the order of 1.3 million metric tonnes or R35-billion a year, and accounts for an estimated 3.2% of the manufacturing sector.Source: CSIR
