That’s an increase of over 1,000% in a decade as the share price has risen from approximately £6.40 back then, to £75.40 today.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…Historical rootsAs well as being home to the main UK stock market listings, LSE is a listed company in its own right. It has a £26bn market cap and strong origins in British financial history. The London Stock Exchange can trace its roots back to 1698, but the official London Stock Exchange Group, as discussed here, was created in 2007. That was when the London Stock Exchange merged with Borsa Italiana, the Milan Stock Exchange.LSE is a global financial markets infrastructure business. This means it makes money through a diversified range of business interests. Its capital markets division operates various financial markets. Its FTSE Russell Information Services division has over $16 trillion benchmarked to its indexes and provides data, research, and analytics services. This means LSE has several revenue streams.Riding the wave of good fortune2019 was another good year for LSE shares as they rose over 91% from January to December. This was partly thanks to its bid of £22bn on financial data firm Refinitiv. Both shareholders and the public deemed this a good move, as it could mean elevating LSE to a position to rival Bloomberg. Its share price also spiked when the Hong Kong Stock Exchange attempted to initiate a takeover with a bid of £32bn. Shareholders and the public didn’t welcome the bid, and it was rejected, but the move increased faith and sentiment surrounding the group.Potential hurdles aheadLSE offers a very low dividend yield of less than 1%, and its price-to-earnings ratio has skyrocketed to nearly 55%. These financial metrics don’t make it an appealing buy at the moment.LSE has proven itself a stable and established company, so I don’t think it’s a risky investment. I do, however, think that LSE shares are overpriced at their current level. For another great rise to take place in 2020, I think something pretty significant would have to occur.Brexit uncertainties have depressed the value of UK-listed firms, making the prospect of going public less appealing to private companies. In 2019, only 34 companies applied to be listed in the UK, in line with a marked decline in the proportion of publicly listed companies in major stock markets worldwide. This might be a worrying trend for the future value of LSE shares.Nevertheless, once Brexit has concluded, the British stock market could regain its appeal, meaning these uncertain times could be temporary.   As far as FTSE 100 stocks go, the London Stock Exchange Group has a lot to like. I think its low dividend yield is disappointing, but it’s covered by more than twice its earnings per share. This is a good ratio and means it’s unlikely to be at risk of a cut. I would expect a higher yield from a company that has seen such a rising success in its share price. If I owned LSE shares I’d be holding on to them, but at their current price, I don’t consider them a good buy.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

TCU considering on-campus centralized testing center

first_img Unpaid internships: history, insight and TCU students’ stories Twitter TAGSphotos Monica Dziak Facebook Students with learning disabilities feel well accommodated at TCU Monica Dziak + posts Monica Dziak printEvery week hundreds of students miss class — whether it be for band trips, athletics road trips, family emergencies or sickness. Lots of these students miss tests in the process.Faculty say they need help in administering make-up tests. Other universities, such as SMU, Baylor and UNT, provide testing centers, and now there has been a discussion for the past four to five years for TCU potentially to create one.The testing center would be not only for students in need of taking make-up exams but also for students who have an extended time accommodation for a learning disability, for example.A testing center, like the one shown above, has been talked about for the past four to five years at TCU’s Faculty Senate meetings. | Photo from DSST.Marsha Ramsey, the director of TCU’s Center for Academic Services, said some of the university’s colleges are creating an internal means of providing testing, which usually runs through the dean’s office.“A lot of faculty are very happy with that,” Ramsey said. “They like the fact it’s close because they have to deliver their tests and pick up their tests. It also helps so the students don’t have to hike across campus.”She said there are pros and cons in having a centralized testing center on campus.“I think it works well for those who are needing make-up exams; faculty have to make arrangements for students to come in at a different time, so a center would be an opportunity provided,” she said.But there are also issues in having a centralized testing center, she said — the biggest being location, staff and an issue regarding the accommodation letter, which states that the student should be able to move to a quiet area of the classroom where students’ questions and the proctor’s answers can still be heard.In this case, there are concerns that if another student asked a question, the professor’s answer might not be heard from a quiet area of the classroom or the information might not be passed on if the student is in another room.The former director of TCU’s Bachelor of Social Work program, Linda Moore, sat in on many of the discussions regarding a testing center at Faculty Senate meetings.She said she believes a well-staffed testing center would be a great idea for TCU and that a vast majority of the Faculty Senate supported the idea.“It would take the burden off of faculty who have lots of other things to do,” Moore said. “If you’re teaching two to three classes with 40 to 50 students in them, and you have four students in the class that need accommodations, that’s four extra hours somewhere you have to do what you need to do to make sure they get what they need.”The decision to add a testing center to TCU’s campus is ultimately up to Provost Nowell Donovan and upper-level administration.Marsha Ramsey was incorrectly quoted in earlier versions of this post.  Monica Dziak World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Monica Dziak ReddItcenter_img The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook Monica is a senior journalism major and political science minor and film double minor from Houston, TX.

Coronavirus live updates: US death toll tops 6,000 as global cases cross 1 million

first_imgnarvikk/iStock(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than a million people across the globe, a quarter of whom are in the United States.The new respiratory virus, which causes an illness known officially as COVID-19, has spread to dozens of countries on every continent except Antarctica since it was first detected in China back in December. More than 211,000 people diagnosed with the disease worldwide have recovered, while over 53,000 have died, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported mild cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.With more than 245,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, the U.S. has by far the highest national tally in the world. At least 6,058 people in the U.S. have died from the disease. Here’s how the story is developing Friday. All times Eastern:7:59 a.m.: New York City morgues are running out of spaceNew York City morgues are almost full amid a mounting death toll from the coronavirus pandemic, according to Federal Emergency Management Agency records reviewed by ABC News. The city has ordered 85 refrigerated trucks from the U.S. military to use as makeshift morgues to hold the dead. The trucks are expected to arrive by mid-April.ABC News has reached out to the U.S. Department of Defense as well as New York City’s Office of Chief Medical Examiner for comment. So far, at least 1,562 people in New York City have died from COVID-19, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.6:32 a.m.: New poll shows less than half of Americans believe their daily routine will return to normal by JuneFewer than half of Americans believe their regular daily routine will return to normal by June 1, amid sharply rising concerns over contracting the novel coronavirus, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday.In the new poll, just over nine in 10 Americans now say that the outbreak has disrupted their daily routine, showing the reach of the pandemic’s impact. Among those, 44% say they think they will be able to resume their regular routine by June 1 — including 13% who say by May 1 — while a combined 84% believe that will happen by the end of the summer.Still, concern over the pandemic continues on an upward trajectory, with 89% of Americans now saying they are concerned that they or someone they know will be infected with the virus, compared to 79% in a poll conducted from March 18-19 and 66% in a poll in the field from March 11-12. The steady increase in anxiety includes nearly twice as many Americans who are now very concerned (now at 50%) in the new poll, compared to the earliest poll in March when it was only 26%.The poll was conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs in partnership with ABC News, using Ipsos’ Knowledge Panel, on April 1-2, 2020, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 559 adults. Results have a margin of sampling error of 4.8 points, including the design effect.5:48 a.m.: Google launches ‘community mobility reports’ during pandemicGoogle is launching a tool that will publicly track people’s movements amid the coronavirus pandemic, allowing health officials to check whether their communities are abiding by social-distancing measures.The California-based tech giant says it will publish and regularly update the “community mobility reports,” which are broken down by location and display the change in visits to public places such as grocery stores and parks. The tool, announced by the company late Thursday, uses “aggregated, anonymized sets of data” that Google has collected on users, including through Google Maps.Google says the reports “were developed to be helpful while adhering to our stringent privacy protocols and protecting people’s privacy.”“No personally identifiable information, such as an individual’s location, contacts or movement, will be made available at any point,” the company says.3 a.m.: US death toll tops 6,000The mounting death toll from the novel coronavirus in the United States surpassed 6,000 early Friday morning, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.A vast majority of those deaths have occurred in New York state, the epicenter of the U.S. outbreak. The virus has claimed the lives of more than 1,500 people in New York City alone.The Federal Emergency Management Agency has asked the U.S. Department of Defense for 100,000 body bags due to the possibility that funeral homes across the country will become overwhelmed, a Pentagon spokesman told ABC News on Thursday.About 90% of the U.S. population is under stay-at-home orders, and many businesses are closed.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Luxury report: Patience pays off for buyer of $20M penthouse

first_img37 East 12th Street and 262 Central Park West (Google Maps, iStock)A Manhattan penthouse that has been on the market since 2015 has finally found a buyer — the priciest listing to go into contract last week.The triplex condo at 37 East 12th Street, which has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, cycled through several brokerage firms before it went into contract asking $19.95 million — down from the original listing price of $33.5 million.It was one of 14 deals last week for Manhattan properties asking above $4 million, two fewer than the week before, according to the latest market report from Donna Olshan. Though the numbers seem lackluster, Olshan noted they were close to those in the same time period over the past three years.“It is a typical January week,” she said, “but nothing these days feels typical.”Douglas Elliman broker Andrew Anderson represented the East 12th Street buyers, a New York family. Anderson told Olshan they had seen the apartment a year ago and submitted an offer, checking in over the ensuing months as the brokers came and went. “Once they adjusted the price, we submitted another offer and this time got a different reaction,” he said.“The sharper you price the product, the faster it sells,” he added.Read moreUES townhouse trades 40% below latest appraisalSouth Florida hits record $5B in residential sales volume in DecemberBig sale in Big Easy: Four Seasons penthouse breaks record Tagscondo marketdonna olshanNYC Luxury Market Share via Shortlink Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Full Name* The second priciest listing to find a buyer last week was for a penthouse apartment at 262 Central Park West asking $19.75 million.

A climatology of tides and gravity wave variance in the MLT above Rothera, Antarctica obtained by MF radar

first_imgA cumulative total of over 5 years of data from an MF radar situated at Rothera (67°S, 68°W) on the Antarctic Peninsula have been used to derive climatologies of periodic motions in the wind field in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere with periods less than or equal to 1 day. Strong tidal motions are observed at 24, 12 and 8 h and monthly mean climatologies are presented between 74 and 94 km altitude for comparison with the HWM-93 horizontal wind model. The 24 h tide shows a strong seasonal dependence in both the zonal and meridional components with a summertime maximum and wintertime minimum over all altitudes. The monthly mean maximum amplitude is 12(±2) ms−1 at 94 km in January and the minimum is <1 ms−1 around 86 km in early winter. The 12 h wave shows large short-term amplitude variability with a peak in amplitude around late autumn. It reaches a minimum at high altitudes in winter and below 80 km during summer, characteristic of a mixture of migrating and non-migrating modes. The phase of the 12 h wave is relatively constant throughout winter with a minimum mean vertical wavelength of 75 km around equinox. The 8 h wave is predominantly a summertime high altitude phenomenon. It is seen most strongly in the winds above 85 km and reaches monthly mean amplitudes of 6(±2) ms−1 in the zonal winds at 94 km altitude. Finally, a seasonal climatology of gravity wave variances is generated by calculating the daily mean variance in the raw winds after subtracting the fitted tidal components. This index shows a strong seasonal and height dependence in both components with a wintertime peak of 2000 m2s−2 in the zonal component at the highest altitudes. This peak occurs when the stratospheric zonal jets are strongest and therefore the filtering of upward-propagating waves in the stratosphere should be greatest; implying that either a significant part of this wintertime wave activity is generated from a region above the peak stratospheric wind or that there is a strong annual variability in the source or propagation of the gravity wave activity at Rothera.last_img read more
