The Eurozone is increasingly experiencing a “two speed” recovery, Markit revealed.“The divergence between Germany and the rest of the single currency area has reached a new high,” said chief economist Chris Williamson. “Outside of France and Germany the periphery has now seen new orders fall in four of the past five months,” he said.The story was mirrored by separate data on industrial orders, released later in the day. “German industrial orders surged in November, maintaining its position as the manufacturing powerhouse of the Eurozone,” said Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight. “There as also decent growth in orders in France and, encouragingly, Spain. However, orders fell in Italy.”Industrial orders across the whole of the Eurozone rose by 2.1 per cent in November, compared to the previous month.The divergence in economic performance between difference areas in the Euro area “increasingly complicates the ECB’s task in setting interest rates,” van Vliet said.

Why have shares in Burberry (LSE: BRBY), a British luxury fashion house, been performing so poorly? From a yearly high of 2,329p on 17 January 2019, the Burberry share was down to 2,099p a week later and hit a low of 1,918p Tuesday.A peak to trough decline of 18% does not fit with the tone of the third-quarter trading statement, released on 22 January 2020. Overall, revenue and same-store sales growth had improved year on year. Revenue growth in the single-digits has been forecasted for 2020.5G 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… See all posts by James J. McCombie The last forecast was for flat sales and weaker margins. The upgrade should have cheered investors, but prices continued to slide. They have recovered to 2,030p at the time of writing but still sit below the highs.China focusBurberry has 431 stores globally, of which 46% are in the Asia Pacific region, where it generates a majority (39.7%) of its revenue. Sales in China grew by around 15% in the latest quarter. This was enough to offset the decline in Hong Kong and increase overall regional sales by a low single-digit percentage.The bringing of a Burberry runway show to Shanghai in April 2020, and the excellent response to Lunar New Year activities, were headline items in the trading report. Burberry plans to open flagship stores at a luxury hotel in Beijing, and a mall in Shanghai, and partner with Tencent, a Chinese conglomerate, to open a social retail store in Shenzhen.Past lessonsThe trading update was released as fears were growing about an outbreak of a new coronavirus in Wuhan, China, that began in December 2019. It is from the same family of viruses as the one that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).There were over 8,000 confirmed cases of SARS, in over 25 countries. The most heavily affected regions were China (5,327) and Hong Kong (1,755). The mortality rate was 9.6%.According to Wang Tao of UBS, an investment bank, the SARS outbreak reduced quarterly GDP growth in China from 12% to 3.5%. Chinese retail sales growth fell sharply as did its stock market.The response has been more transparent and robust this time around. However, China is more connected, both domestically and internationally, now than it was in 2003. There have already been more than 6,000 confirmed cases, and 130 people have died. Social media enables panic to be spread faster compared to 2003. Unease will likely grow until the outbreak peaks, which does not appear to have happened yet.Burberry’s third-quarter trading report was clear that China, the epicentre of the new viral outbreak, was essential to its growth. It was a mistake to issue revised guidance, for positive sales growth, amid an event that will reduce fourth-quarter sales in China and make no mention of it. Global sales, in general, may take a measurable hit. World GDP fell by an estimated 0.1% due to the SARS outbreak, according to the IATA.Looking aheadBurberry stock, and markets, in general, will have more wobbles before this virus is under control. I would think that 2020 results for Burberry will be below the forecast, leading to more share price pain.But remember that things were mostly back to normal six months after the SARS outbreak ended. Things will go back to normal after this outbreak. Burberry will get back on track. Its brand is a strong and luxury one. It is targetting the markets that make sense in the long run, which is good for long-term investors. James J. McCombie owns shares in Burberry. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Burberry.

The listed housebuilders were hit hard by the lockdown. Share prices fell sharply, including those of the biggest of the listed UK housebuilders – Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV). Since those dark days of March, there has been some degree of recovery, but I think there’s still a long way to go. These are some of the reasons I’ve been optimistic enough to buy shares in Barratt Developments this week.Updates from the ChancellorOne of the immediate catalysts for buying the shares was the update from the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak. In what was termed a Summer Economic Update, the threshold for paying stamp duty on a property purchase in England and Northern Ireland was lifted from £125,000 to £500,000.5G 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…It means from the time of the announcement (8 July 2020) until 31 March 2021, everyone buying a main home priced under £500,000 will pay no stamp duty at all. This should boost the market as it allows buyers to save thousands in tax.Improving outlookThe policy comes even as housebuilders were recovering from the impact of Covid-19. Sites have reopened and housebuilders were one of the first out of the gates as lockdown conditions were eased. Reservations are almost back at the same level as a year ago. The forward order book is actually up on where it was 12 months ago. It now stands at £3.2bn.Overall, I think the outlook for all the housebuilders, but especially Barratt, is improving. All this progress, of course, relies on lockdown continuing to ease and us not getting a second wave of the virus. If we avoid that I think the shares should do very well.Undervalued shares and a dividend return?That’s because shares in the housebuilders generally are undervalued, in part because of Brexit and the looming end of Help to Buy in 2021. But on a forward P/E of 10, I think the Barratt Developments share price is too cheap to ignore.I also think the dividend will be reinstated soon, which will boost the share price. It was cut as a measure to preserve cash at the height of the crisis. Now with furlough scheme cash getting closer to its end and interest in house purchasing picking up again, I think Barratt will want to reward shareholders again.The group has around £350m in cash so its finances are in good shape. This should also help it bounce back quickly as it can buy land or use the cash to reward investors.The combination of government support, an improving outlook for the industry and for Barratt specifically, along with the share price being cheap and the potential to reintroduce the dividend, all make me think the shares could rocket.The share price is still well down on where it started the year. I think there are plenty of reasons to believe it can grow strongly over the coming months. Why I’ve bought Barratt Developments shares Image source: Getty Images.
New Organization Driving Ag Innovation in Indiana Home Indiana Agriculture News New Organization Driving Ag Innovation in Indiana By Gary Truitt – Nov 5, 2014 Facebook Twitter Previous articleColorado Voters Say no to GMO LabelingNext articleWhite House needs to Work with New Congress on Trade, Taxes, Transportation Gary Truitt New Organization Driving Ag Innovation in IndianaA new organization has been formed to drive innovation in agriculture in Indiana and bring new markets to Indiana farmers. AgriNovus is a public-private partnership designed to foster and promote innovation in agriculture. The partnership includes farm organizations, agribusinesses, Purdue, and state government which are all focused on fostering new technology and new markets for a wide variety of Indiana farm products. “One of our initial goals for the organization was to build a recognizable brand that was not only a reflection of the sector, but also representative of the State of Indiana,” said Beth Bechdol, Executive Director for AgriNovus Indiana. “Together, with the State and key stakeholders from industry and academia, we believe the new name and identity will bring attention to our strategic efforts and raise the level of awareness around Indiana’s strengths in food and agricultural innovation.”Earlier this year, AgriNovus Indiana initiated a study for Indiana to examine and understand the State’s agbiosciences assets and to identify opportunities for future sector growth. The report, published today by AgriNovus Indiana and Battelle Technology Partnership Practice, better defines the agbiosciences sector in Indiana. According to the data, Indiana’s agbiosciences sector is an important contributor to the health of Indiana’s economy – providing approximately 68,000 high-wage jobs (not including farming), generating large numbers of patents and scientific publications, and investing significant resources in cutting-edge research.Bechdol says the analysis showed areas where Indiana agriculture has growth potential. She told HAT Indiana is well-known for plant and animal production, but AgriNovus feels there is a great deal of growth in the food and nutrition sector, “We have all the ingredients for a very successful sector, but we just have not brought them all together.” Bechdol says AgriNovus will also focus efforts in making our state a center for innovation in precision farming technology, “Sensors, smart machines – there is so much potential in this area. We feel AgriNovus can put a stake in the ground and say we are investing in this.” She feels Indiana could become a center for the rapidly growing area of big data for agriculture.Fostering Innovation in agriculture has long been a goal of the Pence administration. Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann says a group like AgriNovus will help the state to invest more money into growing new markets for Indiana farm products, “Agribusiness is a $16 billion industry in Indiana that includes world-class leaders in research and development both in the private sector and at our state’s leading research universities. AgriNovus will foster new levels of collaboration and synergy among all the players further advancing this important segment of our economy and creating more jobs for Hoosiers.” She feels the General Assembly will be more likely to approve increased levels of funding for agriculture with an organization like AgriNovus in place. Purdue Dean of the College of Agriculture Jay Akridge said AgriNovus will also help Purdue obtain more grants for basic research in agriculture.AgriNovus Indiana is supported by an executive steering committee comprised of professionals representing AGCO, Beck’s Hybrids, Clabber Girl, Dow AgroSciences, Elanco, Indiana Soybean Alliance/Indiana Corn Marketing Council, Indiana State Fair Commission, JBS United, LDI, Ltd., Purdue Agriculture, National FFA, Whiteshire Hamroc, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, and the Office of the Lt. Governor. “Together we have worked hard these past several months to accomplish critical milestones for this effort,” added Bechdol. “It’s exciting to see Indiana taking steps to become recognized as a source of technology and research solutions to some of today’s biggest global challenges. Indiana has long been known as a prominent agriculture state. Looking ahead, we must continue to enhance our production capabilities but now more vocally promote and grow the innovative talent and technologies of Indiana as well.” SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE

Pinterest Facebook TAGS Pinterest Local News WhatsApp Twitter Ector county logo wide.jpg Ector County Commissioners were in agreement today that county equipment needs proper storage but said paying more than half a million dollars for metal shed covers was not worth going over budget. The Ector County Highways and Streets Department is going back to the drawing board after county commissioners rejected their budget amendment request and will reevaluate the scope of their project and where costs can be cut. The department’s director, Evans Kessey, said about $330,000 was budgeted for the metal shed covers spanning 41,000 square feet. The storage additions would include four metal sheds that are about 200 feet long by 16 feet wide. The highways and streets department also planned to have about a dozen bays available for cross-departmental use. Kessey said providing a space for other county departments to store surplus equipment would help preserve the value of county investments and limit further deterioration of equipment prior to auction dates. He submitted a request for an additional $221,775 after bids the county received exceeded estimates that were given last year. “I don’t know what happened in the market,” Kessey said, but suggested the cost of materials was an influencing factor. Ector County Purchasing Agent Kenneth Lind said the lowest bid came in at about $569,000, a standard rate given the amount of square footage. County officials mulled over the topic during the meeting and came to the conclusion that the bid price would not likely go down, but the amount of square footage in the project could be reduced to stay within budget. “Let’s eat this thing in bites,” Precinct 1 Commissioner Eddy Shelton said. Shelton pitched the idea of covering the most weather-sensitive equipment the highways and streets department owns first and then building more sheds down the line. Ector County Judge Debi Hays said tarps could be a temporary solution. Kessey said the county needs to be proactive in protecting equipment and assets from inclement weather because the lack of storage is impacting the completion of departmental tasks. Sensitive road maintenance equipment like the county’s sole chip spreader is used for pavement surface treatment, but it has been damaged due to improper storage. “We don’t keep up with activities because some of the equipment is not operating the way it should operate,” Kessey said, “and “that impacts the public and community.” Kessey said only eight or nine miles of seal coat have been completed this year because of a shortage of employees and a lack of available equipment. He said equipment is continually exposed to the same environment after it is repaired or replaced, which is wasting resources and lowering the productivity of his staff members. Commissioners voiced at the meeting that the priority was staying in budget and encouraged Kessey to return to the Commissioners’ Court with a scaled down version of the project.

Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office(NEW YORK) — An infant and three adults were killed in a “horrific” incident at an Oregon home in which sheriff’s deputies shot and killed the suspect as he was about to take the life of another child, officials said Sunday.The eruption of domestic violence occurred Saturday night in the Portland suburb of Canby, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Jensen said at a news conference.Jensen said the suspect, Mark Leo Gregory Gago, 42, was shot and killed by deputies when they arrived on scene at 10:15 p.m. and saw him attempting to kill another child.The child and another adult were injured in the attack and taken to a hospital for treatment, Jensen said.After killing Gago, deputies found four victims — including a 9-month-old girl — dead inside the house, Jensen said.The baby was identified Sunday as Olivia Lynn Rose Gago, according to the sheriff’s office. The other victims killed were: Shaina E. Sweitzer, 31; Jerry William Bremer, 66; and Pamela Denise Bremer, 64.The relationship between the suspect and the victims, including the baby, is under investigation.“We do believe they were all living in the residence. They are related somehow. We’re just trying to piece that together,” Jensen said.It was not immediately clear how Gago allegedly killed the victims, Jensen said. He said the suspect was not armed with a gun.“There are numerous objects around the house that can be used as weapons,” he said. “Investigators are trying to figure out exactly what it is he used to kill four people.”A motive in the quadruple slaying is under investigation.“Every investigator I’ve talked to that’s been inside the residence … cannot explain just how horrific the scene is. It’s a traumatic scene just to see,” Jensen said. “This is a tough one and we want to make sure our folks are going to be OK when this is all done.”He said five deputies and a sheriff’s sergeant responded to the scene, but it was not immediately known how many fired their weapons.“They were able to locate the suspect,” Jensen said. “At which point they were presented with a deadly force situation. Our deputies fired their service weapons, killing the homicide suspect.“Obviously, they were trying to get there as quickly as possible to save as many people as they can,” Jensen said of the sheriff’s deputies. “They’re obviously worried about their own safety.”He said the sergeant and five deputies have been placed on paid administrative leave in keeping with department protocol for officer-involved shooting investigations.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

A digital edition of the oldest surviving manuscript of Euclid’s Elements, the founding document of Mathematics, will now be available to the public on the internet. The manuscript has been displayed in the Bodleian Library since 1804. When asked whether such developments may result in fewer visitors, Martin Kauffman, a curator at the Bodleian said “for rare things, digitisation is unlikely to make a dramatic difference to visitor numbers, and could even help to whip up interest.”ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005
