However, a shift in consumer shopping habits catalysed by the pandemic could benefit companies such as Tritax Big Box. It owns large warehouses across the UK that are commonly used by e-commerce business for storage purposes.Its recent updates have shown strong demand for its properties. With a limited supply and the prospect of rising demand as retail and other industries increasingly move online, the stock could offer good value for money while it has a dividend yield of almost 4%.Clearly, Tritax Big Box and all UK shares could experience difficulties in an economic downturn. For example, its tenants may struggle to pay rent should their incomes fall. However, this risk could be factored in to the company’s share price.FTSE 100 recovery prospectsOther UK shares are experiencing tough operating conditions. Alcoholic drinks giant Diageo, for one, has been hit by the closure of hospitality venues and air travel. This situation may persist for many months. That means it could cause the company to experience a further downward pressure on its sales figures.However, its most recent investor update showed it’s making progress in reducing costs to offset lower-than-expected sales. It’s also experienced a strong performance in North America. Meanwhile, it seems to have a balance sheet capable of sustaining its operations through a period of economic weakness and into a potential recovery in the coming years.Long-term turnaround potentialOther UK shares such as easyJet could experience ongoing challenges resulting from the pandemic for many months, or even years. The company’s fleet has been largely grounded in recent months, which is putting its financial position under severe pressure.In response, the business has slashed costs and accessed large sums of liquidity to improve its capacity to overcome a difficult financial period. Its most recent update was disappointing, but in line with expectations. Further weak financial performance could be ahead as a result of coronavirus disruption, the length of which isn’t possible to accurately estimate.However, it has a solid financial position compared to other UK shares. It also has a strong market position in the European short-haul segment. That combination could mean easyJet has turnaround potential over the long run. 3 UK shares I’d buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA right now with £3k to invest Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 3rd February, 2021 Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Michael Heaton The Anatomy of Fear 2 COMMENTS Don Lindsey Don Lindsey is a follower of Christ, son, husband, father, and a survivor. Originally from Dayton Ohio, and resident of Apopka for six years, Don sees his life as a dedication to his wife, parents, children, and community. Nicely written article! What always amazes me when I look back, is that those I served with did not really look upon themselves as necessarily sacrificing. They all seemed like it was just the correct thing to do at the time. Sure, we all missed home, especially around the holidays or other special dates, but we had plenty to do with the task at hand. Never realized how much it affected those at home, until one of our neighbors told me after arriving back home that they thought my mother was going to become an alcoholic while I was gone. Good news is that she didn’t, but she apparently drank plenty of medication while I was away – lol. Thank your friend for all of us for his service!! Reply The VOICE of InspirationBy: Don LindseyLater today, my wife and I will be going up to Jacksonville for a retirement party for one of my best friends. He recently retired after 20 years in the Navy and as I sat and thought about it this morning, I realized that I’ve never thanked him for his service to our country.I’ll have that chance later and will, but his retirement and the recent observance of D-Day has had me thinking a lot about what these people and their family’s sacrifice. We’re not talking only about the time that the families lose with their loved one, but at any given moment, these fine folks may be called on to go into a hostile situation in which their lives are at risk. Now, this isn’t news to a lot of us, we have all heard heroic stories of U.S women and men fighting for our freedom, about the lives lost in the name of our country and the values we have represented as a nation. However, as I started to try and see things from their perspective, I realized that we wouldn’t have a lot of the privileges we do without their sacrifices.For instance, we may not have freedom of religion, political affiliations or freedom of speech along with so many other luxuries we are blessed with, and the more I thought about it, I started to realize that I probably wouldn’t deal that well with the challenges dealt to our service members and their families. Can you imagine walking into a warzone and not know if you would be walking out? Can you imagine having the fear that a son or daughter might not be coming back home? I can’t, and thanks to our military, I don’t have to.Someday, one of my children may decide to join a branch of the service. If that happens, I’ll be very proud of them. What concerns me is that I won’t be able to handle the stress and constant worry that so many military families face. The world is a very turbulent place these days and we never know when our armed forces will be called on. That thought alone would probably have me constantly worried, and heaven forbid they would go into a hostile situation, I’d probably go insane with worry.After spending a bit of time thinking about these things, I found myself becoming more and more grateful. Thanks to our armed forces, there haven’t been too many times that I felt unsafe in our country. With our nation so divided maybe taking some time to think about what these folks go through would help unite us under an umbrella of gratitude. A lot of them won’t be coming home for Christmas, because they’re serving overseas, protecting us. To those fine people currently serving, for those who have served, I thank you for your service. God bless.

Save this picture!© Patrick Reynolds The site is of a triangular nature falling from its widest portion at Hinemoa Street to the water’s edge of the Auckland inner harbour. The challenge was to make the most of the panorama offered by the steep section and to fit a family home into a tight building envelope. The proposed dwelling is of three levels with a lower ground floor containing four bedrooms, storage and bathroom facilities, a ground floor level that contains the kitchen, dining, main living areas and garaging and the second floor that contains the master bedroom, en-suite, wardrobe and a study. Terraces flow off the main living areas connecting to a swimming pool to the north side of the upper site.Save this picture!© Patrick Reynolds The idea was to relate the building forms of the proposed house to the rectangular nature of the existing neighbouring buildings and other houses within the streetscape in terms of the materials, positioning and forms used. The house is positioned within the slope of the site allowing for the house to sit within the planning controls of height in relation to boundary. It also allows the house to be positioned similar to other houses on the street. The positioning also allows the house to relate to the natural contours of the land and the longitudinal, main focus of the house to the harbour view and a connection to the sun at the north and west connections off the main living areas. The roofs are sloping and directional towards the street and relates to many of the other houses within the street creating a continuous streetscape.

Reporters Without Borders is deeply concerned at the killing in prison of Mario Medina Vázquez, whom police had charged with the 19 March murder of journalist Roberto Javier Mora García. The suspect, who has been held since 28 March, was stabbed by a fellow prisoner”We call on you to do everything possible to investigate the circumstances of the death of Mario Medina Vázquez and the motive for the murder,” the international press freedom organisation wrote to Ramón Duron Ruiz, prosecutor-general for Tamaulipas State.”The investigation should particularly decide whether this was a ordinary crime or a deliberate act linked to the García case. “The authorities should also explain why Vázquez, a US national, had not been placed on a top security wing as the US Consulate had asked.”This murder casts a new shadow on this investigation into the journalist García’s murder”, it added. Vázquez was imprisoned after having confessed. He later said that he had been tortured. Police said that he had killed the journalist for reasons of jealousy.”Since García, managing editor of the local daily El Mañana, often exposed drug trafficking in the region, we urge you not to rule out a murder committed because of this work,” the organisation concluded.Stabbed 30 timesRoberto Herrera González used a weapon he made himself to stab Vásquez about 30 times on 13 May 2004 in Cereso Prison in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas State. He at first claimed that the journalist had wrongly accused him of a murder, before changing his story. González is in jail for two murders and drug possession.The US authorities in Washington on 17 May demanded an investigation into the death of their citizen and protested about the failure to take the safety precautions demanded by the its consulate. Tamaulipas State prosecutor, Francisco Cayuela, offered his resignation to the governor and was immediately replaced. In its 18 May online edition,El Mañana reported that Hiram Oliveros Ortiz, the second murder suspect in the case has been put under round-the-clock surveillance in a special wing of the prison.BackgroundVázquez was arrested on 28 March with his domestic partner, Hiram Oliveros Ortiz. Police said that Vázquez, who believed he was having a relationship with García, had killed the journalist for reasons of jealousy. Vázquez himself denied this version of events and said he had been tortured to obtain a confession.García was murdered in front of his home in the early hours of 19 March 2004. His body was found around 15 metres from his car, with around 20 knife wounds. The journalist had published several articles about the Gulf Cartel, a regional drug-trafficking organisation. He also exposed suspected involvement by police and local officials along with the methods of the “Zetas” – former police officers who extort money for drug-traffickers from local businessmen. He also pointed the finger at the authorities over the complete impunity in Tamaulipas State. García was respected locally as a serious journalist who carried out his investigations rigorously.The In Memoriam CommissionReporters Without Borders is a member of the In Memoriam Comission set up by six Mexican and international press freedom organisations, to ensure a follow-up to the investigation. A delegation from the commission went to Tamaulipas State at the end of April to make a first report on the progress of the investigation. It will report before the end of May. Apart from Reporters Without Borders, the five other members are Mexican organisations, Centro de Estudios Fronterizos y de Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (CEFPDH), Libertad de Información-México (LIMAC), Centro de Periodismo y Etica Pública (CEPET) and international bodies, PEN Club and Periodistas Frente a la Corrupción (PFC).
