In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. If you’re looking for tech stocks, you’ll find plenty listed on the London Stock Exchange. According to Stockopedia, there are currently around 170 technology companies listed in the UK.Of course, some tech stocks are likely to be better investments than others. With that in mind, here’s a look at what I consider to be the best UK tech stocks to invest in right now.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…The best UK tech stocksOne UK tech company that I think has a lot of potential is Softcat (LSE: SCT). It’s a FTSE 250-listed technology specialist that helps organisations with their IT infrastructure.I see Softcat as a great ‘picks-and-shovels’ play on the technology theme. In the same way that those selling picks and shovels during the gold rush made a fortune, Softcat should profit as companies undergo digital transformation. As businesses move to the cloud, focus more on data, and strengthen their cybersecurity, Softcat should see high demand for its services.Softcat is growing at an impressive rate. Over the last three years, sales have increased almost 50%. I see the potential for plenty more growth ahead. SCT shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 29. I’d buy at that valuation.Enormous growth potentialAnother UK tech stock that I’m excited about is GB Group. It’s an AIM-listed company that specialises in identity management. Its customers include a broad range of blue-chip organisations such as HSBC, IBM, and Nike.GB Group operates in a high-growth industry. Around the world, identity theft and fraud is an enormous problem. With the ability to verify over 4bn people globally, GB looks well placed for growth. The shares currently trade on a trailing P/E ratio of about 31. I think that’s reasonable, given the growth prospects.A UK video game stockI also like Keywords Studios. It provides technical services to video game developers. Its customers include some of the biggest names in video gaming such as Nintendo, Electronic Arts, and Activision Blizzard.Video gaming is booming right now. In the UK, it accounts for more than half of the entertainment market. Looking ahead, I expect the gaming industry to continue advancing due to new technologies such as virtual reality and the growth of esports. KWS should benefit.KWS shares are quite expensive. Currently, the shares trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 47.5. I wouldn’t let that valuation put you off though. This is a UK tech stock with huge potential.Artificial intelligence-based solutionsFinally, take a look at dotDigital. It’s a fast-growing digital marketing company. Its key offering, Engagement Cloud, is an advanced artificial intelligence-based marketing platform that helps companies connect with their customers.This under-the-radar UK tech stock has grown at a very impressive rate in recent years. Between FY2017 and FY2020, revenue climbed nearly 50%. I see the potential for further growth ahead. With the growth of online shopping set to accelerate, DOTD should benefit. At its current forward-looking P/E ratio of 27.7, I see the stock as a ‘strong buy’.More top technology players Of course, there are plenty more top UK tech stocks that I haven’t mentioned. Sage, Rightmove, and Computercenter are just some of the other great technology companies that are worthy of a mention.As always, the key is to spread your capital over a number of different stocks to minimise risk. I think these are the best UK tech stocks to buy for 2020 and beyond Enter Your Email Address Edward Sheldon, CFA | Friday, 24th July, 2020 | More on: SCT See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFAlast_img read more

Five standout players at the U20 World Championship

first_imgClarke is also a player who comes off his wing looking for work. In combining with fly-half Tiaan Falcon, Clarke is a line breaker from first-phase play and with a tournament high of eight clean breaks so far, he is very difficult for defences to handle.Wing in: Caleb Clarke scores one of his three tries against Ireland. Photo: World RugbyIf New Zealand go on to win the competition, Clarke’s involvement will have a far greater impact on his future and career in rugby.Darcy GrahamScotland have the opportunity to finish the competition in a very respectable fifth place – a vast improvement on last year’s eighth.Another winger to have impressed during the tournament is Darcy Graham. The Scot was involved in both of Scotland’s wins against Italy and Ireland, scoring two tries in the process.Having made his debut at U20 level in the Six Nations, Graham’s pace and athleticism provides his team with front-foot attacking ball. And his exceptional finishing means he’ll be knocking on the door of Gregor Townsend in the not too distant future.Pace man: Darcy Graham has also played for Scotland Sevens. Photo: Getty ImagesTomas AlbornozArgentina’s tie with France in round two was arguably the standout game of the pool stage – the lead changed hands on several occasions, France winning with the final play.Yet despite Argentina losing two of their three games, fly-half Tomas Albornoz has impressed. His goalkicking has been near faultless, a 40m drop-goal against France showed great confidence and tenacity for a young player, and he reads the game very well. Ones to watch: Georgia fans enjoy the U20 World Championship. Photo: World Rugby TAGS: Saracens LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By Aaron TillyerWorld Rugby U20 Championships are renowned for producing some of the best players in the world and with the semi-finalists confirmed, we look at those players who have caught the eye so far at the tournament in Georgia…Ernst van RhynSouth Africa captain Ernst van Rhyn is big loose forward who gets around the pitch seamlessly. During the pool stages, he showed a ferocity in defence and was one of the top tacklers (42) as the Junior Boks conceded only seven tries throughout their three fixtures.Leading figure: South Africa skipper Ernst van Rhyn. Photo: World RugbyVan Rhyn’s best outing was perhaps against Argentina in round three. Argentina were penalised heavily at the breakdown, with van Rhyn constantly disrupting their attempts to recycle the ball quickly.With shades of a younger Schalk Burger, van Rhyn has all the hallmarks and makings of a fine openside flanker. As the Springboks side is currently in development, van Rhyn has surely caught the eye of seniors coach Allister Coetzee. Expect him to feature over the next two years ahead of the World Cup in 2019.Max MalinsDefending champions England left it late to snatch victory against Australia in Pool A to secure their place in the semi-finals and although Max Malins didn’t have his greatest game, the young fly-half is quickly becoming England’s greatest asset.Mighty Max: Malins already has first-team experience with Saracens. Photo: Getty ImagesIf Malins plays well, then England play well. In rounds one and two, Malins attacked the advantage line and got his team on the front foot on numerous occasions. His instinctive judgement in his passing is what opens up space in opposition defences. Like his Saracens team-mate Owen Farrell, Malins has great awareness of what is in front of him and, more often than not, his decision-making is what gets his side over the line.After making his Premiership debut for Saracens this season, Malins will undoubtedly play a big part in next season’s domestic campaign.Caleb ClarkeNew Zealand have a proud history of developing their Baby Blacks into All Blacks. The likes of Julian Savea and Brodie Retallick have both come through the age-grade levels and into World Cup winners.Winger Caleb Clarke has the ability to do something similar. He’s topped the try-scoring stats alongside England’s Gabriel Ibitoye, yet it’s the manner in which he has crossed the line that has stood out.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREHe picked up three in the final game against Ireland – and in two of those his pace and his confidence to beat his opposite number out wide was clear. We highlight five players to watch from the U20 World Championship in Georgia The two semi-finals – England v South Africa and New Zealand v France – will be played on Tuesday 13 June.last_img read more

Playhouse / Aboday Architects

first_imgCopyHouses•Legok, Indonesia Architects: Aboday Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses ArchDaily Photographs:  Happy LimText description provided by the architects. This 2 storey house is located in Bumi Serpong Damai, Tangerang. Part of a new gated housing cluster, the house is an amalgamation of an existing 120 type house with a new building in its adjacent 200 sqm empty plot. Restricted by its corner setback, the building occupies only 150 sqm of the total 320 sqm land. The look is straight forward, mimicking the sloping roof of neighboring house. The material is almost bare, with dominantly exposed concrete as its main pallete, punctuated by small glass incision and opening towards the main road. Generally, it appears as an inward orientation building with plenty of vertical green walls providing a friendly gesture to otherwise staid looking house. The house will be mostly occupied by a multi generation family of 3. However, the king of the house is a 5 year old boy who thinks that life is all about play, hence the design of the house. There is a sculptural slider of concrete, tuck in the corner between 2 main building massing. It is his choice of ‘transportation mode’ from his bedroom in 2nd floor to dining room in the 1st floor, instead of the normal open staircase located between the small library and living area. This slider also his favorite place to play after his hectic tuition schedule, covered sometimes with pieces of plastic and clothes on both end to be his secret cave. Except for the 3 enclosed bedrooms, the rest of the house is an open space dominated by white and grey palette of exposed concrete wall and ceiling. Some flaws during the concrete pouring on the wall and ceiling left trace of ‘elements’ that become a natural ornamentation in the house. Concrete has been chosen as main building material, simply because of its dualism quality. It has a much needed strength as structural element; yet its flexibility creates an interesting tension which produces certain emotion in places it shapes. The decision of using a dominantly concrete wall and roof, however, poses quite a challenging situation in this tropical climate, as this material has been known for trapping heat easily. By having an extremely high ceiling (10 meter in height), applying a special coating of heat resistant membrane on the external roof surface and leaving external wall occupied by plenty of cripple plants (which soon will grow to the roof); it helps to reduce internal heat accumulation significantly. Here, natural ventilation and lighting play an important aspect of the house. All open spaces have no air conditioning system, and dependent entirely on the opening and incision between walls, windows and roof for fresh air ventilation generated by a series of ceiling fan suspended beneath the concrete roof using a metal rod mechanism. To generate an ever changing flow of air, there is some part of walls that has been built apart by 40 cm, allowing the creation of ‘rain’ window by operating horizontal glass louvre within this long gap. And rather than having a low manicured garden, house owner has opted to plant big trees instead, positioned strategically on the garden surface to provide a much needed shade areas during a certain period of the day (especially in the area where glass window has extended floor to ceiling). This few ‘low tech’ strategies have been providing simple solution to many common problems occur causes by the use of extensive concrete materials.Save this picture!© Happy LimProject gallerySee allShow lessEfficient Living Machine / LEDarchitecturestudio + HIDDENOFFICEArticles”Il mondo che non vedo” exhibition at the Museo di Roma in TrastevereArticles Share Save this picture!© Happy Lim+ 25 Share Year:  Projects CopyAbout this officeAboday ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesLegokIndonesiaPublished on September 05, 2010Cite: “Playhouse / Aboday Architects” 05 Sep 2010.

An architect led design-build project, MOOD RING HOUSE is a low-cost ($80/sf) single family live-work house.Located in an eclectic neighborhood in walking distance from the city center of Fayetteville, Arkansas, the design is born out of a mix of site limitations and opportunities, economic constraints, and programmatic requirements. With a skewed alignment to the lot lines, the siting preserves two established monumental Catalpa trees, orienting the house to take advantage of north light from a clerestory, and south and west facing views of the immediate forest and the distant mountains, all while fronting the main intersection near the property. Work functions are consolidated at grade, with a majority of living spaces above. The small base minimizes the built footprint to preserve existing trees and reduce foundation costs, which are at a premium in the unstable Arkansas soil. The cantilevers, in concert with the dramatically sloping site, give unique views of the natural landscape to each living space, creating a private enclave amidst the tree canopy. Beneath overhangs are a carport on the west-facing front and an outdoor room on the east-facing rear. The shed roof, when coupled with an inverted truss profile, floods the interior volume with natural light.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyInteriors are articulated and finished to enhance the expansive and overlapping relationship between spaces. A limited palette of whites and light woods are carried throughout the interior. Details throughout leave corners open to imply interlocking spatial relationships.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyTo keep costs down, the house is constructed primarily of generic, off-the-shelf materials, detailed to mask their humble character. The exterior envelope is primarily prefinished Hardi Panel and twin-wall polycarbonate. Panels were used in nominal dimensions to minimize labor costs during installation. Reglets between panels are inexpensive roof trim, painted to match the siding finish. Roofing is metal galvalume. The upper level windows are sliding patio doors and sidelights with interior steel and chain link railings. Cantilevers are accomplished with continual LVLs and engineered joists spanning between. The symmetrical balance of the cantilevers and the relatively limited amount of openings effectively turn the upper level into a box beam.   Save this picture!PlanThe Mood Ring House explores how architecture can have different day and night presences with distinct experiential and spatial qualities. During the day, because of the site orientation and subtle material palette, the architecture has a demure character despite its distinct massing.  At night, illuminated soffits construct volumes out of projecting colored light from concealed energy efficient LED fixtures. Colors are derived from the temperament of the house and directly by the owners’ desire.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyFollowing the completion of the Mood Ring House, nearby home owners have begun to equip their porch lamps on with multi-colored LED bulbs, transforming the neighborhood into a Rainbow Light District. Project gallerySee allShow lessThis Artist is Using Kickstarter to Fund a Floating Bridge to New York’s Governor’s …Architecture NewsGreek Pavilion at 2016 Venice Biennale to Emphasize Importance of Architectural Coll…Architecture News Share Projects Manufacturers: American Standard, Artemide, Galvalume, Ikea, James Hardie, Minka Aire, Signature Hardware, Lumber Liquidators Maple, Satco CopyAbout this officeSILO AR + DOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFayettevilleUnited StatesPublished on May 21, 2016Cite: “Mood Ring House / SILO AR + D” 21 May 2016.

Payroll giving ‘not fit for purpose’

first_img Payroll giving was developed in a pre-direct debit age and may therefore no longer be fit for purpose, according to a report by Adrian Sargent and Jen Shang published between Bristol Business School and the Institute of Fundraising.Growing Philanthropy in the UK, a report written from the Growing Philanthropy Summit in July, says that payroll giving was the most contentious issue discussed, and that the group felt that it should be replaced by the workplace solicitation of direct debits.According to the report the group also felt that the Fundraising Standards Board should be given more teeth, have power over all charities and funding via a proportion of Gift Aid.Among other things the report recommended the creation of fundraising ‘ambassadors’ – volunteers who would champion topics such as major gifts, payroll giving and public trust. They would be senior charity officers who would head up mini campaign boards.It also issued challenges to the Institute of Fundraising to develop academic qualifications in fundraising, starting with a fundraising or a nonprofit communications degree, pointing out that although undergraduate degrees in marketing are plentiful, “a degree to prepare an individual for a career in fundraising is notable only by its absence”.The Institute should also be prepared to take tougher sanctions against those found to be in breach of the Codes of Fundraising Practice; toughen the Code of Fundraising Practice for Accountability and Transparency in fundraising; develop a ‘right to ask’ campaign alongside a ‘right to say no’ campaign and collate evidence of best practice and actively disseminate it to the professional community.Download the report from http://bit.ly/uPHG1C Payroll giving ‘not fit for purpose’ Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Institute of Fundraising Howard Lake | 28 October 2011 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Barnum (Hugh Jackman) is feeling down on his luck. He visits an old bar decorated with circus posters and photographs. The similarities are there but you can imagine the shock when I saw the bar was called McCarthy’s.”“All the circus ‘Big Wigs’ knew McCarthy’s Circus Bar and it would be wonderful if the connection was true,” Tony said.Tony’s grandfather, John set up McCarthy’s Circus Bar after spending his childhood with some of the biggest names in circus including the Fossett family.Born in 1884, John McCarthy grew up in his father’s Cappamore pub.“His father William let the circus people stay at the back of the pub. That was the circus field. John and his brothers grew up with a circus right in their own back garden. As a young boy, John used to look on in awe as the shows built up and he helped out whenever he could.”The closeness of home to the circus and the magic that surrounded him triggered a deep love and life-long fascination with the circus for John McCarthy.When John was 14, he started to collect circus photographs and posters. “That was his interest – it was a great spectacle in a quiet village to see the circus pull into town.”“Years later, after he got married, his father set him up with his own pub that became known as McCarthy’s Circus Bar. All the posters and photographs he had collected throughout the years were put on display in the bar.”John also documented his childhood experiences of the circuses visiting Cappamore in a series of letters, many of which were published in newspapers across Ireland and featured in The World’s Fair in the 1930’s.Little did John realise that he was documenting the social history of a country village, its people and the traditional circus landscape in Ireland dating from 1895 onwards.John McCarthy passed away February 5, 1966 – the same day his grandson, Tony arrived into the world. Tony continues to honour his grandfather’s legacy with McCarthy’s Circus Bar Travelling exhibition.The exhibition consisting of over three hundred photographs and four hundred circus posters returns to the Parkway Shopping Centre this Friday, September 13 until Friday, September 20.
