I’ve been looking for UK shares to buy after the recent stock market rally. Two companies in particular have attracted my attention. I believe these could be great ways for me to invest in the UK economic recovery over the next few months and years. UK shares to buyWhitbread (LSE: WTB) has been impacted more than most other businesses throughout the pandemic. The Premier Inn brand owner has faced the daunting reality of having most of its operations closed throughout the past 12 months.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 impact can be seen on its revenues. For its last financial year, the group reported revenues of just under £2.1bn. For the current financial year, analysts are projecting sales of just £648m. That’s a 70% decline year-on-year.Further, the group is expected to report a loss of £530m, compared to a profit of £218m in the prior-year period — a swing of £748m. I think these figures clearly illustrate the challenges facing the group. Whitbread has bled money over the past 12 months, and it could be some time before this trend changes, especially if coronavirus restrictions last beyond the government’s current roadmap. However, I believe this is one of the best UK shares to buy because of its recovery potential. Estimates vary, but economists believe UK consumers have saved over £150bn throughout the crisis. When the economy opens up again, they may rush to spend those savings. Indeed, there have already been reports that some holiday firms are seeing a significant increase in the average cost of holidays booked compared to before the pandemic. This implies Whitbread may grow back stronger. Of course, this isn’t guaranteed, but I think the group has tremendous potential as a recovery play. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today. Medical recoveryAnother business that sits on my list of the best UK shares to buy today is engineering group Smiths (LSE: SMIN). This is an economic recovery play, but it doesn’t sit in the same bucket as companies such as Whitbread. Smiths is one of the world’s largest suppliers of medical products.Over the past year, as the global medical system has been concentrating on coronavirus, routine operations have been postponed. Smiths’ engineering divisions have also been impacted. As a result, group revenues for the three months ended 31 October were down 2%. As the world recovers from the pandemic, I think the demand for services from engineering groups such as Smiths will rebound. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today.But that’s not to say the business doesn’t face challenges. Smiths has a solid reputation worldwide as an engineer, but this can’t be taken for granted. If the group skimps on quality or research and development, consumers make quickly grab market share. That may have a significant impact on revenue growth.So think it would be sensible to keep an eye on these potential challenges as we advance.

Sitting on the escarpment at Seaforth the site is blessed with spectacular south facing views down to the Spit. Central to the idea of the project is how the natural environment can be extended and form an integral part of the house. The green escarpment is carried through the front garden and the path to the entry slowly transforms from natural to more formed and solid as the approach continues. Ultimately with the garden mature the building will appear to be completely part of the surrounding landscape; a monolithic form rising out of a green base.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe house is conceived of as two distinct pavilions; a public wing with the living spaces and a private wing containing bedrooms and ancillary spaces.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ben GuthrieSave this picture!First floor planThe living areas open both to the front and rear gardens. The roof kicks up to the west allowing a large north window to occupy the highest section providing north sun and light into a south orientated living room. The kitchen tucks onto the back of the space opening to the rear patio and external living areas. The private wing is L-shaped in plan with bedrooms at the upper level. The layout allows for a large undercover outdoor area that wraps around a ground level courtyard. A small strip of landscape allows the rear garden to flow into the courtyard, thereby continuing the idea of the natural environment being as much a part of the house as possible.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieThe material palette is deliberately restrained with the use of concrete blocks, off form concrete and timber cladding for the upper level. The house is solid at its base and becomes lighter above the ground floor datum. The house is earthed and feels connected to the ground with both the concrete blocks and timber cladding brought internally to reinforce this notion.Save this picture!© Ben GuthrieProject gallerySee allShow lessStilts House / Natura Futura ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsOle Scheeren Unveils Design for High Rise ‘Barclay Village’ Project in VancouverArchitecture News Share Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897840/seaforth-house-masq-architecture Clipboard 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897840/seaforth-house-masq-architecture Clipboard Ted Quinton, Alan Smuskowitz Seaforth House / MASQ architectureSave this projectSaveSeaforth House / MASQ architecture Photographs “COPY” CopyHouses•Seaforth, Australia Architects: MASQ architecture Area Area of this architecture project Houses Seaforth House / MASQ architecture Photographs: Ben Guthrie Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Builder: ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeMASQ architectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeaforthAustraliaPublished on July 10, 2018Cite: “Seaforth House / MASQ architecture” 10 Jul 2018.

Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Government Approves Smithfield Purchase Previous articleThe Sky is Falling, Yet AgainNext articleKeep that Nitrogen Where it Belongs Gary Truitt SHARE Shuanghui (shawn-way) International Holdings and Smithfield Foods announced Friday they received clearance from the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment on their proposed transaction – according to the Hagstrom Report. This decision disturbs National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson – saying the deal represents the sale of one-quarter of U.S. hog processing to a quasi-state owned Chinese enterprise – setting a dangerous precedent in terms of food security and market competition. Johnson says NFU urges Congress, the Administration and other decision makers to oppose this sale – as the organization believes foreign-backed control will only make the situation worse. Assistant Secretary for International Markets and Development Marisa Lago says CFIUS has only one purpose – to review the potential national security effects of transactions through which a foreign investor could obtain control of a U.S. business. Lago says CFIUS does not consider broader economic or policy concerns when reviewing foreign investments – applying the same rules to each transaction it reviews regardless of the nationality of the investor or economic sector of the investment. Still – in order for the sale of Smithfield to go through – shareholder approval is still needed. Smithfield’s shareholders are scheduled to vote on the sale at a special meeting on September 24th. Some lawmakers have expressed concerns the deal could jeopardize U.S. food safety and raise pork prices for American consumers. In June – they requested the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. to include USDA and the Food and Drug Administration in their deliberations. Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow also questioned if this would encourage China to purchase other U.S. food companies. During a Committee hearing – she called it important to evaluate how foreign purchases of our food supply will affect our economy. She expressed the belief that economic security is part of our national security and should be considered when foreign investment into the U.S. is reviewed. Stabenow says the Senate Agriculture Committee will continue examining the effectiveness of the review process for acquisitions such as this and take steps as needed to protect American interests in future transactions.

Twitter ReddIt printOn the one year anniversary of TCU head coach Jamie Dixon’s arrival in Fort Worth, TCU out-muscled the Richmond Spiders in Fort Worth, out-rebounding their opponent 39-22 en route to a dominant 86-68 victory Tuesday night. The win sends the Horned Frogs to the the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden in New York for the first time in school history.“This program has come so far from when I was here my freshman year with a winless conference season, 0-18, and now I’m headed to New York for the semifinals of the NIT,” TCU guard Brandon Parrish said. “It hurt not to go to the NCAA tournament, but when you play for a team that hasn’t seen the postseason in years how can that not motivate you to do your best to bring an enthusiasm to the basketball program that hasn’t been seen in so long.”Dixon has surpassed the expectations set out for him in his first year at his alma mater.“This is maybe a little ahead of schedule in terms of the atmosphere here,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “Chris [Del Conte] told me to slow down, but I’m not good with slowing down and patience.”The game started out as a close affair, but that all changed after the 13:02 mark in the first half when TCU led Richmond by just a point, 10-9. After that, the Horned Frogs went on an 11-0 run that pushed TCU’s lead to 12, 21-9, powered by TCU forward Vladimir Brodzianksy, who scored six of the points on the run through a variety of a jump-hook, lay-up, and pull-up jumper.TCU forward Kenrich Williams missed a first-half double-double by a point, as he went into the locker room with nine points and ten rebounds. However, he finished the game with TCU’s first ever triple-double, totaling 11 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists.“I didn’t even know I was close to a triple-double right until the end when my teammates told me, so I looked for that last pass,” TCU guard Kenrich Williams said. “My teammates did a great job of making plays tonight.”Williams sat out the entirety of the 2015-2016 campaign after needing knee surgery.“It’s a blessing to do this, having sat on the sidelines all of last year,” Williams said.Dixon was unsure how Williams would look post-surgery.“We didn’t know what we had in Kenrich at the beginning of the year, and now we know know he has it,” Dixon said. “His versatility is unbelievable.”TCU forward Vladimir Brodziansky scored 16 of his team-high 20 points in the first 20 minutes on an efficient five-of-eight shooting, as the Horned Frogs led 41-26 at the half.Just 2:15 into the second half, the Horned Frogs went on a 13- 1 run on the strength of three three-pointers by Desmond Bane, JD Miller, and Brandon Parrish in a span of about 90 seconds.The TCU lead ballooned to as much as 22, 75-53, with 6:10 left in the game.The Horned Frogs’ four seniors Brandon Parrish, Karviar Shepherd, Chris Washburn Jr., and Mike Williams capped off their final game in Fort Worth in style, addressing the crowd over the public address system before heading to the locker room.“We thank the TCU community and our students each and every day for what they’ve done for us and the energy they’ve brought to Schollmaier Arena to provide a home court advantage like ours,” TCU guard Brandon Parrish said.TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini played his part in rallying the students for Tuesday’s game, paying for a free hot dog, bag of chips, drink, and ice cream for every student in attendance. “I just wanted to thank our students for how they’ve shown up all basketball season,” Boschini said. “I think having them all here really made a difference.”Up NextThe Horned Frogs next game will be at the NIT Semifinals in New York against the winner of Wednesday’s game between University of Illinois and University of Central Florida.Reaching the Semifinals of the NIT is an accomplishment for a basketball program that hadn’t reached the postseason since 2005, but Dixon isn’t satisfied with where his team is yet.“We still have more things to prove this season,” Dixon said.TCU’s next game will tipoff at Madison Square Garden in New York March 28th at either six or eight p.m. against either Illinois or UCF.

Drew Angerer/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — High-profile lawyer Michael Avenatti, best known as a critic of President Donald Trump and for representing pornstar Stormy Daniels, will not be charged for alleged domestic violence at this time.The Los Angeles City Attorney announced Friday that, after reviewing all of the investigative reports and considering all of the evidence in the case, it would not be filing charges against the lawyer.The case had been sent to the LA City Attorney for possible misdemeanor charges after the Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to file felony charges last year.Avenatti was arrested last November on suspicion of felony domestic violence. LAPD detectives booked Avenatti and he was released on $50,000 bond.Actress Mareli Miniutti, who received a restraining order against Avenatti, claimed in court documents that the two had been living together. She alleged that they were in an argument over money when he called her names, hit her in the face with pillows and dragged her across an apartment floor. Avenatti has always maintained his innocence.After the latest decision not to file charges, Avenatti took to Twitter, writing, “I am extremely thankful that after three thorough investigations, one by the LAPD, one by the LA District Attorney, and one by the LA City Attorney, the truth of my innocence is now established and no charges are being brought.”However, the LA City Attorney is leaving the door open to possible future charges. Hearings have been set for Miniutti and Avenatti to give their sides of the story to the city attorney’s office. The case remains open and charges could be filed in the future.Miniutti’s attorney, Michael Bachner, told ABC News that he had been told by the LA City Attorney’s Office that it believes Avenatti assaulted Miniutti but decided not to charge him because it was worried a jury would not convict him.“It is an outrage that this decision was made particularly since Ms. Miniutti was never interviewed by any member of the City Attorney’s Office despite our requests and despite pictures of her injuries,” Bachner wrote in a statement to ABC News. “It is clear to us that the City Attorney simply found it easier to avoid doing his job.”The LA City Attorney’s Office said it had no comment in response to Bachner’s claims.
