History shows that stock markets tend to recover after a crisis. Investing in the 2008/09 global financial crisis would have proved lucrative for long-term investors in growth stocks.With a vaccine programme now under way in the UK, the pandemic could be under control or even over by the second half of 2021. As stock markets tend to look forward six to nine months, I think now is the time to consider growth stocks that could do well in an economic recovery.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…Large growth stocksAt the top of my list is the FTSE 100’s mining giant Rio Tinto. Mining predominantly iron ore, it has already benefited from a 60% rise in the price of the industrial metal this year. But I also think a combination of rising global demand and constricted supply could cause commodity prices to rise further. In addition, continued central bank stimulus and a weaker dollar should support prices.As a complete contrast, there’s online sports betting and gaming, which is a global and growing business area. When the pandemic shut down physical casinos and betting shops in 2020, the shift to online gaming accelerated. So, online gaming companies including Flutter Entertainment benefited. I consider it as my top pick among several growth stocks in this sector as I like that it includes several popular brands, including Paddy Power and Betfair. In addition, it also owns FanDuel, PokerStars and FOX Bet in the US. That’s important because I’d say the greatest growth area is in the US as several states move towards legalising online sports gambling. I’d consider Flutter to be well-positioned to capitalise on this huge growth opportunity.Mid-sized stocksAvon Rubber is the third-greatest performer in the FTSE 350 over the past 10 years, with a whopping 1,700% return and is one of my chosen growth stocks. It’s a UK-based world leader in respiratory protection equipment and as a shareholder, I was pleased to see strong revenue growth throughout its financial year. I think its strategy of expanding its product portfolio is working well, which could lead to a bigger and broader business, providing further growth over the coming years.Games Workshop continues to be a high-quality growth stock that I would continue buying. It’s now the best-performing stock in the FTSE 350 of the past 10 years, up over 2,200%. Even with this share price growth, I think there’s much more to come. This UK-based, global business operates a high-margin, high-return-on-capital business in a niche market. Revenues, profits, and cash flow are all growing well. So I’m confident it can continue to reward investors over the coming years.Finally, I would describe B&M European Value Retail as a low-volatility growth stock. This leading variety goods value retailer made a strong start to its second half. During the first UK lockdown, it was classed as an essential retailer and was permitted to stay open. It reported that trading was strong and it even gained new customers. B&M operates in a growing sector and has plenty of room for expansion, in my opinion. And I like that it’s founder-led, cash-generative, and has scope for growth both in the UK and France.

Jacob Stockdale on running, religion and rugby memories

first_img Jacob Stockdale on running, religion and rugby memoriesJacob Stockdale recently bought a Mustang on eBay. It’s navy blue with white stripes down the centre. Cars are a big love of his and the plan is to make use of his days off by doing this one up, learning about engines as he goes.If Stockdale were a car, it would no doubt have ‘go-faster’ stripes. He’s not one to hang about. A couple of years into his international career, he is only one try away from becoming one of Ireland’s top ten try-scorers of all time having already crossed for 16 in 21 Tests.He’s not one to rest on his laurels either and is working on fine-tuning himself as well as his Mustang. “Defence is a big improvement for me,” replies Stockdale when asked about the areas he’s made most strides in since his 2017 Test debut.“It’s something that was seen as a bit of a weakness before but I’ve worked really hard on that in the last couple of seasons – and I’m not finished yet. My high-ball work in the air is coming along, too, and is something I want to turn into a strength, to dominate in the air and go after balls. If you can catch cross-kicks, it can be a 30-40m gain for the team.”Having had a few hamstring problems during his career, the 23-year-old is also working with Ireland’s strength and conditioning coaches to change his running style and put less strain on the muscles. It’s a tough task when your body is so used to moving a certain way.“It’s easy when you’re thinking about it and running in a straight line, but when you have a rugby ball in your hands and are trying to focus on beating a defender it’s a bit trickier,” he says. “I’m seeing improvements in how I run and if you compare the last season to the three seasons before it looks better. It’s trying to get my running style more effective and natural, and hopefully faster.”Watch Stockdale break down the wing for Ulster or Ireland and you wouldn’t think there was much wrong with his running ability, but small changes can make a big difference. When he first joined the Ulster Academy, he had a few injuries and used the time on the sidelines to get bigger and stronger.Yet while he could lift huge amounts in the gym, he’d lost his top-end speed and couldn’t change direction easily. Now he’s found his optimum “fighting weight” to combine power and pace.Had he not had a growth spurt at 16, however, Stockdale would probably be playing rugby as a hobby while working in the criminology field. As it happened, growing nine inches in a year enhanced his rugby ability and the degree he started fell by the wayside when rugby commitments took over.“At 16 I was 5ft 6in. Then when I came back from the summer holidays I was 6ft and then I kept growing until I was 6ft 3in. I was pretty useless at rugby before but with the growth in height I got bigger and stronger and faster, and I found I was able to break tackles. I felt a lot more confident too.“I would always have played rugby because I love the sport, but I wouldn’t be half as good a player.”Kicking on: Jacob Stockdale has worked on his kicking game (Getty Images)With the possibility of two months in Japan should Ireland make history in reaching the World Cup semi-finals for the first time, it is an intense time for rugby’s top players. Yet Stockdale has always been one to find ways to switch off, valuing the importance of balance.When he first started out, he had his criminology degree. He also plays the guitar, although Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car is the only song he’d be confident enough to perform in public; instead he tries to strum Eric Clapton tunes at home.He’s also involved in the Peace IV project at Lurgan RFC, whose U20 side were Rugby World’s January Team of the Month. He visits local schools to encourage children to get involved in the summer course and lends a hand with coaching when he can. He sees Peace IV as a way of helping Northern Ireland move forward and says: “It’s a cross-community project that brings the two sides – nationalists and unionists – together. We go into schools and try to get them talking through rugby. A lot of kids have never played rugby in their lives, so they come along, learn and play a tournament at the end of it. The Ireland wing provides an insight into his life on and off the field Ready for action: Jacob Stockdale poses for a World Cup portrait (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img This article originally appeared in the September 2019 issue of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. “I’m a very strong believer in Northern Ireland moving forward and the best way to do that is through the younger generations, the generations coming after me. The two sides of the community can be friends and talk and move on from the past. It’s small steps but hopefully it makes a difference.”Religion also plays a big part in his life. His belief that his future is out of his hands means he doesn’t dwell for too long on defeats. Yes, he’s disappointed but he’ll grasp the intended lessons.Take Ulster’s European Champions Cup quarter-final defeat by Leinster, when Stockdale burst past a handful of defenders only to drop the ball over the line. “Don’t get me wrong; I was really upset about it and felt sorry for myself for a day or two, but then I moved on,” he says. “He (God) wanted me to learn from it and I did learn a lesson.“The big thing I’ve learnt is your curve is not always going to rise, it will have dips and tough times, and the more tough times I have the more I learn to deal with them. It’s nice not to worry about the future. I work as hard as I can to be the best player I can, but if it’s not God’s plan, it’s not happening.Try time: Jacob Stockdale scores against Wales (Getty Images)“Praying can help me in the middle of a game – the last time was probably in that quarter-final! I remember the first time I played at the Aviva (Stadium) and scored a try, I looked up to say, ‘Thanks for that’. The camera caught me and I had a weird expression on my face!”Of course, talk of religion and rugby leads to Israel Folau. What does Stockdale make of the full-back’s sacking by Rugby Australia after his anti-gay social media posts and Folau’s claim it is religious discrimination?“It’s a very difficult situation – it’s never going to be black and white. On the one hand, I support Israel Folau’s right to religion and right to freedom of speech. On the other hand, he’s representing Australia and the Waratahs, and he has a large amount of responsibility not to offend supporters. If it was me, I’d want people to feel comfortable coming to watch me play rugby.”While Folau isn’t in Japan for RWC 2019, Stockdale is front and centre of Ireland’s campaign. Ask him about his World Cup memories and he mentions New Zealand’s loss to France in 2007 and Bernard Foley’s try against England in 2015 that knocked out the hosts, but it is the 2011 tournament that stands out most. He describes himself as “obsessed”, rising in the early hours to watch all 48 matches taking place in New Zealand.So what of this World Cup? Can Ireland break into the last four for the first time? “The Ireland team has made history before and there’s no reason we can’t now. I feel pretty confident.”Ireland must start well, with Scotland first up before further pool matches against Japan, Russia and Samoa. If, as expected, they make it out of the group, they will surely face New Zealand or South Africa in the last eight. Stockdale is aware of the size of the challenge, but there are big motivators.“Scotland are a very good team and probably haven’t had the success in the last couple of years they deserved. It’s a nice way to start the tournament, you’re not feeling your way in. If we beat them it stands us in good stead to top the group.“Joe’s leaving and Rory Best is retiring after the World Cup, there are probably a couple of other guys who won’t go to another World Cup, so it’s massive. We want to perform to our potential.”Stockdale has done that since breaking into the Irish team. He exceeded his own expectations by nailing down a starting spot so quickly. Like his Mustang, he covers ground quickly.last_img read more

Over a dozen paratroopers hospitalized after training jump at Camp Shelby

first_imgMattGush/iStock(NEW YORK) — More than a dozen U.S. Army paratroopers were injured during a training jump at Mississippi’s Camp Shelby on Wednesday night, officials said. The soldiers, from the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division in Alaska, parachuted out of a C-130 aircraft for the nighttime exercise and missed their intended drop zone at the military base near Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Some landed in trees and had to be rescued, according to Maj. Timothy Chavis, a spokesman for U.S. Army Alaska.At least 16 paratroopers were transported to local hospitals. None of the injuries were life-threatening, Chavis said.About 89 paratroopers jumped from that single aircraft, while hundreds more aboard other planes were also involved in the exercise. The total number of soldiers who missed the drop zone was unclear. U.S. Army Alaska media relations chief John Pennell said it was too early to speculate on what happened.Medical staff at nearby hospitals were notified of the jump ahead of time and the potential influx of patients, as well as the types of injuries to be expected. Meanwhile, emergency vehicles were on standby at Camp Shelby prior to the exercise, according to a statement from the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. The jump was part of an ongoing training exercise called “Operation Arctic Anvil.” Some 3,000 soldiers from the Alaska-based airborne brigade combat team are at Camp Shelby for the monthlong training.

Recrystallisation and electrical behaviour of glacier ice

first_imgElectrical d.c. resistivity measurements made on the George VI Ice Shelf have established the polar nature of Antarctic ice despite saturation by melt-water from surface melt-lakes. Previously it has been suggested that different impurity concentrations are responsible for the extremes in resistivity (a factor of 1,000) between temperate ice (essentially at its pressure melting point) and polar ice (well below its pressure melting point). However, the evidence suggests that impurity levels are similar despite the leaching of contaminants by free water in temperate glaciers, a process which is absent in true polar glaciers. This implies that, although impurities can significantly alter the electrical behaviour of glacier ice, there is a more fundamental mechanism at work. We suggest that this process is one of recrystallisation.last_img

Press release: Two men jailed for longer after brutal Gravesend attack

first_imgTwo violent attackers have had their sentences increased today after the Solicitor General, Robert Buckland QC MP, referred them for being too low.On July 16 2017 Aiden St Louis, 19, and Mohammed Gedi, 22, pursued their 18-year-old victim into a busy fast-food restaurant and carried out a sustained attack in front of horrified onlookers. St Louis was armed and repeatedly stabbed the victim with a kitchen knife.The pair was originally sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court in March. St Louis received 6 years 6 months’ imprisonment in a young offenders’ institution with an extension period of 3 years, and Gedi received 7 years’ imprisonment. Today, after the Solicitor General’s reference, the Court of Appeal increased St Louis’ sentence to 9 years with an extension period of 3 years and Gedi’s to 9 years 6 months’.Commenting on the sentence increase, the Solicitor General said: This was a vicious and sustained attack which deserved a tougher punishment. I am pleased that the Court of Appeal has today agreed with my referral and increased Mr St Louis and Mr Gedi’s sentences to reflect this.last_img read more
