Shares are having a great run at the moment. This year, the FTSE 100 is up about 8%. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 is up about 12%.Here, I’m going to highlight three shares I’d buy right now. I think all three have considerable growth potential in the current environment.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…A top UK tech stockOne UK stock I think looks attractive at the beginning of May is Gamma Communications (LSE: GAMA). It’s a leading provider of unified communication solutions.The reason I’m bullish on Gamma is that I expect the ‘hybrid’ working model – where people work from home a few days per week – to become far more common. Gamma should benefit from this trend. Its communication solutions, which enable employees to work remotely, are well-suited to organisations that have a flexible working setup.Recent results for 2020, were very impressive. For the year, revenue was up 20%. Meanwhile, adjusted earnings per share were up 26%. Looking ahead, the company said it’s “positive about the outlook for the group in 2021 and beyond.”There are risks to the investment case, of course. One is the threat of competition – this is a competitive industry. Overall however, I think this growth stock has a lot of appeal. The stock’s P/E ratio of 31 seems fair to me, given the growth potential.A game-changing acquisitionAnother stock I’d buy right now is Boohoo (LSE: BOO). The leading online fashion retailer now owns a whole portfolio of big brands. These include PrettyLittleThing, Debenhams, NastyGal, and Coast.Boohoo has generated unbelievable growth over the last five years (revenue growth of nearly 800%) and I think the company’s recent acquisition of Debenhams is going to boost growth further. Debenhams is a well-known brand in the UK and its website gets approximately 300m hits per year. On the Debenhams website there’s now lots of Boohoo products (and other Boohoo brands) for sale.This stock can be volatile at times. So it’s not suited to risk averse investors. I’m comfortable with the volatility though. With the stock trading on a forward-looking P/E of about 31, I see it as a ‘buy’.A Warren Buffett-owned stockFinally, I continue to like Mastercard (NYSE: MA), which is listed in the US. I named this stock as a top ‘reopening’ play back in March and, since then, it has performed well. I think this Warren Buffett-owned stock has the potential to keep rising though.I like Mastercard for a number of reasons. Firstly, I think it should benefit as the global economy continues to reopen and travel picks up. Last week, the company said it’s started the year with “good momentum,” delivering positive net revenue growth in Q1. It also said it’s encouraged by the return of US spending levels to pre-pandemic trends. Secondly, the long-term growth potential here is significant. Over the next decade, we’re going to see trillions of transactions shift from cash to credit cards and electronic payments. Mastercard looks well-placed to benefit from this trend.This stock is not cheap. Currently, the forward-looking P/E ratio is about 48. This adds risk to the investment case. I’m comfortable with this valuation however, as the company is very profitable and has a lot of growth potential.

Should Anuvia pay to remove the excess sludge from Apopka’s wastewater…

first_img TAGSAnuviaApopka Wastewater Treatment PlantCity of Apopka Previous articleWekiva plays in finals, Anuvia pushes back, and Sportsplex is up for saleNext article680,000 Oball Rattles recalled Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Michael Heaton You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here 2 COMMENTS Please enter your comment! Reply Opinion/AnalysisAre the problems at the plant caused by Anuvia or did they aggravate a pre-existing condition?The Apopka wastewater treatment plant has been in the news a lot during the past year. In July the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), accused the City of improperly discharging treated effluent from the City’s wastewater treatment plant.  In December FDEP sent the City a letter that listed 14 violations at the plant.The December letter prompted the City to hire an independent engineering firm, Woodard & Curran, to review and evaluate the wastewater plant. The engineering firm concluded that some of the problems at the plant related to the amount of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and/or Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) arriving at the plant.  The report indicated that the COD and BOD were responsible for the accelerated accumulation of biosolids in the plant which are causing operational problems. The source of the elevated levels of BOD and/or COD was determined to be Anuvia Plant Nutrients’ fertilizer production facility on Jones Road in Zellwood.Why was Anuvia allowed to discharge BOD and/or COD into Apopka’s sewer system?In 2014 the City of Apopka issued a permit to Anuvia allowing them to discharge wastewater containing up to 6,300 mg/L of BOD. The permit set no limit on the amount of COD. Anuvia has told The Apopka Voice that their BOD discharge has been less than 4,500 mg/L, well within compliance with the BOD limit required by the permit.The Woodard & Curran (draft) report indicated that the City was not removing biosolids from the plant quickly enough and that a backlog of biosolids had been allowed to accumulate. The report went on to state that if the backlog of biosolids inventory was not removed, the plant’s ability to maintain compliance with FDEP regulations would be at risk. The City currently removes approximately 120 cubic yards of biosolids per week (six 20-cubic yard loads).On March 1st, 2017, the City Council agreed to spend $63,400 to have approximately 1,200 cubic yards of “excess” biosolids removed over the course of the next 12 weeks. Prior to and after that vote, members of the Council made it clear they expected Anuvia to absorb some portion of the cost.During the March 1st meeting City Administrator Glenn Irby was asked how long it had taken for the backlog of biowaste to accumulate.  He responded, “I have been told anywhere from months to years.” Mr. Irby also said, “We make quite a bit of money processing their (Anuvia’s) waste.”ConclusionAnuvia has been in compliance with the discharge permit issued by the City with respect to BOD and COD.  Yes, the BOD and/or COD from Anuvia has accelerated the accumulation of biosolids, but the accumulation of excess biosolids occurred over a long period of time that may well pre-date Anuvia.Should Anuvia pay to have the excess sludge removed from the plant?We say no.It certainly appears that the amount of COD and/or BOD in Anuvia’s wastewater might have increased the City’s required rate of biosolids removal, but is that one extra load a week or more?  The engineering report suggests that BOD coming into the plant may have increased by 30%.  If there is a direct relationship between the BOD intake and biosolids accumulation one might conclude the Anuvia discharge could be responsible for two extra loads of sludge per week, but no one knows for sure.  And how is the City’s cost of biosolids removal, not just the cost of doing business? And how much did the pre-Anuvia biosolids accumulation contribute to the problems?The City agreed to process Anuvia’s wastewater and issued a permit. Anuvia paid a $1.5 million impact fee and has stayed within the parameters of the permit (which expires on March 6th). If the City has a problem with them, whether it be COD, BOD or any other substance they deem problematic that arrives at the plant, it should be addressed in the new permit.

Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter March 6, 2017 at 9:27 amcenter_img Ray A. Shackelford, Ph.D., M.P.H. Citizens pay “IMPACT FEES” via property taxes, water rates and sewage rates with NO relief of responsibilities. So, Anuvia should not be allowed to escape its responsibilities for costs to address “excess” biosolids in our wastewater treatment system.In brief, although we appreacite the jobs and “IMPACT FEES” rom Anuvia, we must protect and promote the public health of OUR CITIZENS, and the FISCAL INTEGRITY of OUR TAX MONEY. March 6, 2017 at 7:02 pm Please enter your name here Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom If the city gave Anuvia a permit with certain parameters and they are complying with the parameters spelled out in the permit. it would be difficult to hold Anuvia financially responsible for expenses incurred by the discharge from Anuvia. A revised permit issued to Anuvia to change the parameters is obviously a solution to the issue at the waterplant, but some determination of the length of time it will take Anuvia to design and implement any changes required to comply with the new permit requirements has to also be considered. It appears some error on the city’s part was made in determining what effect the discharge from Anuvia was going to have on the wastewater plant operation.

Joint appeal demanding Shacab editor’s release

first_img Organisation Follow the news on Somalia SomaliaAfrica Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia January 8, 2021 Find out more June 28, 2005TO: H.E. Abdullahi Yusuf AhmedPresident of the Transitional Federal Government of SomaliaH.E. Ali Mohamed GediPrime Minister of the Transitional Federal Government of SomaliaH.E. Adde Muse HirsiPresident of PuntlandYour Excellencies,We, the undersigned local and international press freedom and human rightsorganizations, call for the immediate release from prison of Abdi Farah Nur,editor of the weekly newspaper Shacab in Somalia’s self-declared autonomousregion of Puntland. Local journalists believe his detention is linked tocritical articles in Shacab about the Puntland leadership and Somalia’sTransitional Federal Government (TFG).Police forces in Garowe arrested Farah on June 19, after he resumedpublication of Shacab, which the Puntland government had ordered suspended.He was not brought before a court until June 23, in violation of his rightunder Puntland law to a hearing within 48 hours. When he appeared in court,the presiding judge questioned him on why he had resumed publication of thenewspaper, and the journalist replied that he had done nothing wrong,according to local sources. The court ordered his transfer to a top-securityprison for an undetermined period, pending investigations.Farah, who has not been charged with any crime, is being held incommunicado,according to his colleagues and friends. They say that a colleague who triedto visit him was assaulted and threatened by security forces guarding theprison.His arrest comes after a number of serious attacks on the staff and thepremises of Shacab. In April 2005, security forces attacked the newspaper’soffices, breaking the front gate and damaging the editor’s car and otherproperty, according to the newspaper’s editor and local press freedomgroups. The same month, Farah and reporter Abdirashid Qoransey weredetained, tried, and acquitted on charges of incitement and insulting thepresident. Those charges were based on a mid-April article suggesting thatcitizens with complaints about the Puntland government contact theirrepresentatives in Parliament, and a reader’s letter criticizingauthorities, according to Farah.On May 5, the Puntland government ordered Shacab “temporarily suspended” foran undetermined period for publishing unspecified articles that it claimedcould lead to unrest. A presidential decree issued after a cabinet meetingcited the government’s constitutional responsibility to uphold the unity ofPuntland. Fearing arrest at that time, Shacab decided to suspend publicationwhile seeking to contest the ban via legal representation and negotiation.However, all of those efforts failed, according to the newspaper’smanagement.The undersigned local and international groups believe that Farah is beingheld in violation of his right to work as a free and independent journalist,as guaranteed by Article 20 of the transitional federal charter of Somalia,which Puntland signed, and Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of HumanRights. We call for our colleague’s immediate and unconditional release. Wealso call on Your Excellencies to ensure that journalists in Puntland andthe rest of Somalia can work freely, without fear of reprisal.Sincerely,Robert Menard,Secretary General,Reporters sans frontieres (RSF)Aidan White,General Secretary,International Federation of Journalists (IFJ)Ann Cooper,Executive Director,Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) Ibrahim Nawar,President,Arab Press Freedom Watch (APFW) Ahmed Kiimiko,Chairman,Somali Human Rights Defenders Network (SOHRIDEN) Omar Faruk Osman,Secretary General,Somali Journalists Network (SOJON)RECOMMENDED ACTION:Send appeals to authorities:- noting that Farah is being held in violation of his right to work as afree and independent journalist, as guaranteed by Article 20 of thetransitional federal charter of Somalia, which Puntland signed, and Article19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights- calling for his immediate and unconditional release- calling on them to ensure that journalists in Puntland and the rest ofSomalia can work freely, without fear of reprisalAPPEALS TO:H.E.

October Job Gains Pushing Housing Toward Recovery

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea The labor market is helping to boost housing recovery despite a weak virtuous cycle between the jobs and housing recently, according to research released by Trulia earlier this week.The percentage of employed 25- to 34-year-olds reported in October (76.2 percent) is still slightly below its pre-housing bubble rate (78 to 80 percent) but is still at its highest level since 2008, which bodes well for the housing market, since 25 to 34 is the prime age for household formation, according to Trulia. Having a job made a big difference in housing among that age group, according to 2014 Census data – only 12 percent of 25- to -34-year-olds with jobs lived with their parents, as opposed to 21 percent of those in that age group who don’t have jobs. The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently announced that the overall U.S. unemployment rate hit a new six-year low in October.Another key to housing recovery is job growth in “clobbered metros” (areas affected the most by the housing bust), according to Trulia. Job growth was reported a 2.0 percent year-over-year increase in September, which was slightly ahead of the national rate of 1.9 percent for that same period. The clobbered metros with the highest rate of job growth year-over-year in September were Orlando (3.7 percent), Miami (3.4 percent), Jacksonville (3.3 percent), and Las Vegas (2.8 percent). The highest rate of job growth among the top 100 metro areas (clobbered or no) was in Houston, at 4.3 percent. The lowest rate was in Columbus, Ohio, at 0.7 percent, according to Trulia.Residential construction employment, which is an indicator of whether or not jobs are helping the housing market, saw their lowest monthly gain in October (8,000 jobs) since May 2014, according to Trulia. Year-over-year in October, however, residential construction job growth (6.0 percent) was way ahead of the overall national job growth rate for that period (1.9 percent). This may seem like a slow growth rate when compared to the 19.5 percent increase in the number of units under construction that was reported for September, but upon further examination, the rate of growth for employment in residential construction is high relative to construction activity, Trulia reported.
