For example, they may be sound fundamentally, but have struggled to post improving financial performance because of a recent weak economic outlook.Meanwhile, other companies could be sound investments today because of changes occurring within their industries. They may be well-placed to capitalise on them, and could deliver rising profitability as a result.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…With that in mind, here are five FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer a mix of recovery potential and sound strategies. Over time, they could provide a better chance of doubling an initial investment.The best shares to buy may benefit from improving industry prospectsCompanies such as BP and Lloyds could be among the best shares to buy now. That’s because of their potential for improving operating environments in their industries. For example, the oil & gas and banking industries have been negatively impacted to a large degree by the weak economic outlook. However, history suggests this situation will improve. This could increase demand among investors for companies operating in such sectors.Furthermore, BP’s plan to pivot towards a greener asset base may provide a more sustainable profit growth outlook over the long run. Meanwhile, Lloyds’ digital focus could mean it has a relatively large competitive advantage as technological changes impact on the banking industry.Investing in companies with the right strategiesOther UK shares may also benefit from an improving economic outlook. For example, as coronavirus disruption eases, retailers such as Next and Morrisons may experience rising demand for their products as a result of improving consumer confidence.Furthermore, they’re investing large sums of capital in their online operations. This could mean they gain a growing competitive advantage over peers that are focused on store sales. Especially now that a growing proportion of shoppers are favouring digital channels to purchase a wide range of goods. This trend may continue, and could lead to rising profitability for Morrisons and Next.Similarly, AstraZeneca could be one of the best shares to buy today. It has focused on improving its pipeline and exposure to emerging economies. These changes, alongside recent acquisitions, could strengthen its long-term earnings growth prospects. In turn, that could lead to a higher valuation versus its industry peers.Doubling an investment in sharesAll of the above companies could outperform the stock market in the coming years. Doing so could reduce the amount of time it takes to double an initial investment. Historically, that’s been less than a decade based on the stock market’s high single-digit annual total returns.With many companies trading on low prices despite their long-term growth potential, now could be the right time to unearth the best shares and hold them in the coming years.

CB 29 Building / Dellekamp Arquitectos

first_img Projects 2006 Apartments “COPY” Text description provided by the architects. In Mexico City, in a residential area called Polanco, this four story building contains three apartments organized in relation to three gardens. The street setback creates the first garden, where the public activities take place. In the back it becomes private, looking out to a garden of ferns and a beautiful existing tree.Save this picture!The central garden generates an interior view, a void to bring in light and circulate freely around the apartment. To edit the view to the street, we created different triangular cuts in the three levels, providing the interior space with double heights that articulate themselves with the space on upper or lower floors, sometimes invading another apartment. Save this picture!The distribution of the program concentrates service areas on the sides of the courtyard. A fourth floor on the back allows the apartments to have two floors each and for the upper one to have access to a garden terrace.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Pilgrim Route / MexicoArticlesGreen Void / LAVAArticlesProject locationAddress:Polanco, Miguel Hidalgo, 11550 Mexico City, Distrito Federal, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Suspect arrested by police investigating Lanka-e-News arson attack

According to the police, he is a member of a gang that works on contract. A second suspect escaped at the time of the arrest.The instigators of this attack, as well as the perpetrators, must be identified and punished, Reporters Without Borders said,The staff of Lanka-e-News have meanwhile voiced concern that no forensic experts have visited their gutted headquarters and that rain is liable to erase all the forensic evidence. Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for an independent and impartial investigation.Dozens of Sri Lankan journalists participated in a march in Colombo today to voice support for Lanka-e-News and condemn the country’s frequent press freedom violations (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hqDfhphwfptja_Q42qd122H3pD5A?docId=CNG.a9790e638b792cfc6d654bd68885cd31.2f1).

Sri Lanka’s media are often the targets of threats and violence.”The arson attack on Lanka-e-News was carried out by two individuals who broke into the building at around 2 a.m. yesterday and used gasoline to start the fire. The fact that unidentified individuals were seen watching the building and asking about the website’s employees during the preceding days suggest that it was planned well ahead of time.The attack came several days after Lanka-e-News published an article questioning the testimony that defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapakse, the president’s brother, gave in a case brought against former army commander Sarath Fonseka. The website’s editor, Sandaruwan Senadheera, fled to the United Kingdom last year with his family after receiving threats. Prageeth Eknaligoda, who worked as a cartoonist and political commentator for the website, has been missing since 24 January 2010 (see the support campaign).The Voice of Asia media group in Colombo was the target of a similar arson attack by a dozen armed men last July.As a result of the frequent attacks, Sri Lanka’s journalists feel every unsafe and censor themselves constantly.

Driver who fatally struck three siblings at school bus stop gets four years in prison

first_imgAlyssa L. Shepherd, 24, from rural Rochester, Ind., is pictured in a booking photo from Oct. 30, 2018. – (Indiana State Police)(ROCHESTER, Ind.) — A 25-year-old woman has been sentenced to four years behind bars for the crash that killed three young children and seriously injured another as they crossed the street to their school bus in Indiana last year.Alyssa Shepherd will also serve three years in home detention and three years probation. Her driver’s license was also suspended for 10 years.Shepherd was driving her pickup truck on the morning of Oct. 23, 2018, when she struck four children as they attempted to board their school bus on a rural road near Rochester, Ind.Alivia Stahl, 9, and her 6-year-old twin brothers, Xzavier and Mason Ingle, were killed. Their classmate and neighbor, 11-year-old Maverik Lowe, survived but suffered multiple broken bones and had to be airlifted to a hospital, where he spent 30 days and ultimately underwent 21 surgeries.During her testimony in court this past October, Shepherd said she had dropped her husband off at work and was on her way to drop her kids at school and welcome a new youth pastor to her church when she came upon “a very large vehicle.” She said she saw blinking lights but failed to see that it was a school bus or that it had a red stop sign arm extended.Shepherd was found guilty of three counts of reckless homicide, one count of criminal recklessness and one count of driving around a school bus with its stop arm extended.
