Prices of the FTSE 100 flier touched nine-month highs at around 220p last week, but they’ve slipped sharply again in recent hours. It’s now down 6% on Monday, due to fresh pandemic-related investor panic.The IAG share price is still up around 42% over the past 12 months. But, at 195p, this UK leisure stock is still worth half of what it was at the start of 2020. Back in those pre-pandemic days the FTSE 100 share traded in the region of 430p.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…So what now for IAG and its share price? And should I buy the British Airways owner for my Stocks and Shares ISA?Travel troubleThere are several reasons why I think the IAG share price could keep slipping in the short term:#1: Holiday bookings fail to recover. IAG’s freshest slide comes after the UK government advised citizens at the weekend to keep holding off from booking holidays for the time being. The guidance is perhaps no surprise given the rampant rise in Covid-19 cases on mainland Europe since the beginning of 2021. The warning threatens to derail a recovery in ticket sales across IAG’s transatlantic routes too.#2: Fuel costs grow. A recent rise in fuel costs is putting pressure on the profits that IAG’s significantly-reduced fleet are generating too. Brent oil prices recently touched 22-month peaks of approximately $70 a barrel. It’s also possible fuel prices will keep growing once lockdowns ease again and demand indicators improve.#3: Rivals ramp up capacity. It’s true IAG will benefit from the steady erosion in the competition during the Covid-19 crisis. But the company could suffer from a sudden and significant ramping up of capacity from rival airlines. The likes of Wizz Air and Ryanair have stronger balance sheets that will allow them to increase activity when conditions improve. And, of course, the low-cost operators offer significant dangers to the IAG share price over the long-termReasons for an IAG share price recoveryI don’t think it’s all doom and gloom for the British Airways owner though. Indeed, there are several reasons why I think the IAG share price could recover strongly in 2021 and beyond. The company’s operations in the transatlantic and low-cost markets still offer plenty of profit opportunities over the next decade.In the meantime, the company’s recent issuance of €1.2bn worth of bonds should help it glide through further Covid-19-related difficulties in 2021. The FTSE 100 business is also taking steps “to reduce [our] cost base and increase the proportion of variable costs to better match market demand.” This should create a much leaner profits-creating machine after the crisis.City analysts also think losses will narrow sharply in 2021. A full-year figure of 26.7 euro cents per share is anticipated, down from the 122.6-cent loss of last year. There are clearly reasons why the IAG share price could recover strongly from its recent lows.But, for the time being, I’m happy to buy other cheap UK shares instead.

Kansas woman readies for mission to Nepal

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Karin Feltman plays guitar at a hospital in Dadeldhura, Nepal, during a visit there in May 2012. Feltman, a member of St. Margaret’s, Lawrence, Kansas, will become a long-term missionary there beginning in 2014.[Episcopal Diocese of Kansas] Karin Feltman, by her own admission, is pretty fearless. She is terrified of only two things — spiders and heights. So why is she preparing to become a long-term missionary in Nepal, where spiders are everywhere and where eight of the world’s 10 tallest mountains are located?“My whole life has led up to this point,” she said. “I’m fulfilling God’s purpose for my life.”Feltman, a member of St. Margaret’s, Lawrence, Kansas, plans to leave for Nepal early next year and stay for at least five years and maybe longer.She’s no stranger to mission trips — she’s done 15 of them since 2005, including short-term relief work after Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti, and she’s also headed medical trips to Kenya (she’s a nurse) through the diocesan Kansas to Kenya ministry.But this experience will be different. She will move there to become part of a community and work to reduce its poverty and provide long-term sustainability.After a year of language and cultural immersion in the capital of Kathmandu, she will work in a mission hospital in the western Nepali village of Dadeldhura. There, she’ll help treat things like leprosy and tuberculosis and bites from tigers, leopards and bears, plus assist with surgeries and some of the 1,400 births that take place there each year.Since this is the only major hospital to serve a region with more than a million people who live in dire poverty, she knows she will see a wide variety of cases.In addition, Feltman said she will provide community health education to neighboring villages and will work to prevent human trafficking. Nepal is a source country for girls and boys who are enslaved by this crime, often forced to engage in the sex trade.Going full-timeSo how did Feltman go from her comfortable life in Lawrence, where she owns a home, works at the local hospital, is active at St. Margaret’s and was able to make mission trips overseas, to a life-changing decision to pack up for Nepal?Part of it was practical. “I’d do one trip and then was planning the next one,” she said. “It was hard on the hospital to plan.”Besides, she was hearing God’s call. “God was telling me the next step is full-time.”So, a couple of years ago, before Feltman even knew where she might be going, she paid off all her debts, sold half her belongings and took in a roommate who can help care for her house while she’s gone (she will return on periodic trips home). She even cut her hair short to make it easier to maintain.A man carries live chickens on a pole as he walks along a street in Dadeldhura, Nepal, during a 2012 visit to the Asian country by Karin Feltman. A member of St. Margaret’s in Lawrence, Kansas, Feltman was in Nepal exploring a call to become a full-time missionary there.Why Nepal?So why Nepal? Feltman laughed as she described the path that led to this small country in Southeast Asia nestled between India, Tibet and Bangladesh.“I’d never even been to Nepal,” she said. “I thought if I went anywhere it would be to Africa. I love Africa and have a heart for Africa.”She decided to become part of a Christian missionary group called TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) that works in Chad, Zimbabwe and Nepal. As she prayed for an outcome that reflected God’s agenda and not hers, every door in Africa kept closing. “Only Nepal worked,” she said.To test her sense of call, she went to Nepal for two weeks in May 2012. While there, she said, she faced so many spiritual battles, “I felt like Job.”When she arrived in Nepal, a political strike shut down all travel and left her stranded in Kathmandu not knowing a soul. She experienced spiders everywhere, a language barrier and coming face-to-face in the dark with a jungle cat.Eventually she made her way to the hospital in Dadeldhura where she will be working and was warmly welcomed by the missionaries there. “I received a lot of support from them,” she said.She returned home convinced of her call to work in Nepal, knowing that by law she can’t openly speak of her Christian faith and instead will share the gospel through her acts of service and love.Parish is behind herFeltman decided to set early 2014 as her target date to leave. Her sister died in late 2012, and she didn’t want to leave her family to celebrate the holidays this year without her, too.She even started classes to tackle her spider phobia. By March she was able to hold a large tarantula in her hand.She also had to get busy raising money. As is customary for missionaries, she has to provide her own financial support while serving overseas. TEAM, which has had a presence in Dadeldhura since the 1960s, has determined she’ll need to raise $3,600 a month, which covers not only her living expenses there but also health insurance, taxes, travel to and from Nepal, and ministry expenses while there.“They know how much support is needed so missionaries don’t have to struggle,” she said. “And it’s the same amount whether you’re a doctor, nurse or teacher.”St. Margaret’s has embraced her call as a missionary and has expanded it to a parishwide effort, St. Margaret’s Mission to Nepal. “The entire parish is involved,” Feltman said. “I’ll be St. Margaret’s missionary to Nepal.”The rector, the Rev. Matt Zimmermann, created support teams to help with fundraising and prayers, now and after Feltman leaves. This spring, members have been learning more about Nepal, including monthly after-church suppers featuring native food.The church also has sponsored fundraisers, including a March Madness basketball bracket challenge and a “Grown Ups Night Out.” They’re also selling “Destination Nepal” T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts.Some people have made monthly pledges, and others have made one-time gifts.Feltman said so far she’d raised 52 percent of her goal. What she needs most is pledges of ongoing monthly support.“I am confident God will raise the money,” she said. “He will make it possible for me to go.”When she does, she suspects she’ll have to battle loneliness. “My family and friends are all here,” she said. “I’m going alone.”But she said none of her friends are surprised that she’s made this decision. “They know that this is exactly who I am and what I should be doing.”Even if it means living with spiders.— Melodie Woerman is editor of The Harvest in the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, where this article appeared in the March-April issue.

California Dreaming / BiLD architecture

California Dreaming is one of a continuing series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies to contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ‘California Bungalow’ type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.

However in recent years, with sudden gentrification, the area has seen a new wave of housing occupying the abundant infill opportunities. These new occupants, reflective of contemporary ways of living and ways of building sit in stark contrast with the area’s original houses. Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneThe area’s original houses were often indiscriminately placed on the site; with little consideration or adaption to the sites orientation, topography or street address. The project takes the California Bungalow typology as a point of departure, progressively adapting it to the specific site conditions; sheering the floor plate vertically to minimise cut & fill, slipping it horizontally to address the street crossover and provide northern oriented private open spaces, and finally extending and wrapping the signature double-gable roof form around the building to provide maximum exposure to northern light in winter, while shielding the interior spaces from the summer sun & western light in the afternoons. Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneWhile the project formally adapts the California Bungalow type and consciously responds to its neighbours, the plan and programmatic response departs from the reference typology. California Dreaming centralises ‘core’ service program (kitchen/bathroom and laundry), pushing habitable program to the perimeter with ample access to natural light and strong connections to the exterior. Save this picture!context mappingThe units are mirrored in plan with the northern orientated living spaces provided with expansive retractable glazed doors, opening out onto private balcony/courtyard the northern views down the valley and across the city. The ‘core’ acts as a spatial catalyst defining the shape and size of the surrounding habitable rooms, while sliding panels alternatively separate spaces into discrete rooms, or retract to form a fluid continuous space where programs are flexible and loosely defined.

The project synthesizes contemporary expectations for space, light and environmental performance, with the urban presence of an established neighbourhood character. California Dreaming sits in its street scape as something familiar yet alien, an uncanny presence, distinct from both the area’s new housing and the suburbs original occupants, yet familiar and linked to both.Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneProject gallerySee allShow lessNantong Sports Center Winning Proposal / HennArticlesGlass Farm / MVRDVArticles Share California Dreaming / BiLD architectureSave this projectSaveCalifornia Dreaming / BiLD architecture Save this picture!© Tanja Milbourne+ 15 Share Photographs Area:  235 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Australia Architects: BiLD architecture Area Area of this architecture project California Dreaming / BiLD architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/220004/california-dreaming-bild-architecture Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY” Year:  CopyAbout this officeBiLD architectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesAustraliaPublished on March 27, 2012Cite: “California Dreaming / BiLD architecture” 27 Mar 2012.

New guidance on when to accept or refuse donations

first_img The Institute of Fundraising has published updated guidance on the acceptance and refusal by charities of donations. It is designed to help trustees and fundraisers make clear and consistent decisions when they face a potentially problematic donation.The updated advice comes in the wake of The Presidents Club scandal in January 2018. Acceptance of donations is of course a key part of a charity’s reputation and the trust the public can expect to have in it. While it tends to be major gifts that cause the challenges, it is important to recognise that any size of gift could create a possible conflict with a charity’s ethics, values and vision.The Institute’s guidance builds on its earlier publication on the topic, and is intended to give charities further support as they prepare a consistent and considered strategy for potential risks in the future.The guidance is aimed at anyone in charities who is involved in raising funds and making decisions on gift acceptance, and specifically covering the role and responsibility of trustees. It features guidance on how to put together a policy on gift acceptance and refusal and examples of where charities might have to make difficult decisions.You can download ‘Acceptance, refusal, and return: A practical guide to dealing with donations’ for free from the Institute of Fundraising’s website.Stephanie Siddall, Policy Manager, Institute of Fundraising, said: “Fundraisers understand the importance of making sure there is enough money and resource for their charity to be able to carry out its work. But, sometimes there are other considerations that can be more important – the value of donation may not always be worth the cost in terms of a potential loss of public trust and confidence, reputational damage or a conflict with the charity’s ethics, values and vision. These aren’t easy decisions, which is why this guidance is an important tool in supporting charities, fundraisers and trustees to know how to deal with these situations.” Tagged with: ethics Institute of Fundraising Law / policy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis47  772 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis47 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

But there are some rare situations when trustees can properly decide that refusing or returning a donation is going to be in the charity’s best interests. We hope that this guidance will help charities understand those situations, and the rules and processes around them.”  771 total views,  3 views today Advertisement Howard Lake | 4 May 2018 | News New guidance on when to accept or refuse donationslast_img read more

Elanco Chooses Downtown Indy for Global Headquarters

first_img Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Dec 4, 2020 SHARE SHARE Elanco Animal Health Inc. (NYSE: ELAN), which is now the second-largest independent animal health company in the world, announced plans Friday to locate its global headquarters in Indiana following its 2018 IPO and recent acquisition of Bayer Animal Health. The company will invest in its Indiana operations to position Elanco for future growth as an independent company, making Indiana its base of operations and locating its global headquarters on 45 acres of a 91-acre former industrial site on the southwest corner of downtown Indianapolis that has sat vacant since the General Motors (GM) stamping plant closure in 2011.“It is a momentous day for the state of Indiana as we celebrate Elanco’s decision to establish its global headquarters in central Indiana, positioning itself for future growth and consolidation in the Hoosier state and creating hundreds of high-paying jobs for Hoosiers,” said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. “Elanco is an important asset to Indiana – a leader in our growing agbioscience sector, which is poised to grow and continue innovating. We are thrilled with the direction of Elanco’s future and the transformational impact its growth will have on the agbioscience sector, the downtown Indianapolis footprint, and most importantly, the lives of Hoosier workers.”Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler said, “As director of agriculture for the state of Indiana the announcement from Elanco Animal Health and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation is celebrated news. Elanco Animal Health is the second largest animal health company in the world and has had locations in Indiana for many years.  Our state’s agriculture climate and infrastructure is a large consideration of why global companies come to Indiana. We are excited that Elanco Animal Health selected the Hoosier state as the location for their global headquarters and that they will continue calling Indiana home.”Elanco plans new global headquarters campus, base of operations in IndianaAfter a multi-state search process, Elanco, which develops products and knowledge services to prevent and treat disease in farm animals and pets in 90 countries, will locate its global headquarters in Indianapolis, constructing and equipping a future-focused global headquarters campus on 45 acres of the former GM stamping plant industrial site on the city’s near westside. The new site will allow Elanco to consolidate its global operations and more than 1,000 team members at one location and enable the company to design a smarter, more modern, fit-for-purpose campus with collaborative, flexible spaces that support the future of work.Anchored by this new headquarters, the company will invest more than $300 million in its Indiana operations, establishing its base of operations and a center of excellence in Indiana and ensuring the Hoosier state is at the center of its future growth and future consolidation. Elanco will retain its manufacturing centers in Clinton, Indianapolis and Terre Haute and plans to center its R&D activity in the state to support its continued growth and innovation.“With a shared vision for the future of the agbioscience industry in Indiana, we are pleased Elanco can serve as a catalyst through our global headquarters and base of future operations in Indianapolis,” said Elanco president and CEO Jeff Simmons. “In partnership with Governor Holcomb, Mayor Hogsett and IEDC, we look forward to continuing our nearly 70-year history here and serving our new community. Indiana has created a strong environment for business, and we have deep appreciation for local leaders that have worked to position the Hoosier state for the future.”A dedicated Elanco build team will begin planning for the downtown site immediately, and the company expects to break ground in Indianapolis in the first half of 2021. Elanco, which is currently headquartered 25 miles east in Greenfield, expects the new headquarters to be complete in the next two to three years. The company is committed to working aggressively in partnership with the state to identify leasing options for its current facility to ensure a smooth transition and ongoing quality career opportunities in Greenfield.Decision will retain 1,600+, create 570+ new, highly skilled, high-wage jobsElanco currently operates 19 manufacturing facilities and employs approximately 9,000 associates worldwide. With its decision to anchor its corporate headquarters and base of operations in Indiana, Elanco is committed to retaining the more than 1,600 Hoosiers it employs across its corporate and manufacturing operations throughout the state over the next decade and to helping relocate more roles to Indiana, with the support of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). The company will create up to approximately 575 new, high-wage jobs in Indiana by the end of 2030 to support its global headquarters and innovation operations.Elanco’s Indiana workforce will enable the newly independent company, which finalized its separation from Eli Lilly and Company in 2019, to grow as a stand-alone company. Its recent $6.8 billion acquisition of Germany-based Bayer Animal Health makes Elanco the second-largest independent animal health company in the world.

Development of the 91-acre industrial site is moving forward now after the IEDC reached an agreement with Ambrose Property Group to purchase the site, partnering with the city of Indianapolis to advance near-term economic development on the site and supporting the transformational redevelopment of the state’s Capital City.With the purchase now executed, the state, city and Elanco will work together to advance a vision of walkable, mixed-use space that expands the boundaries of downtown Indianapolis across the White River and brings renewed vibrancy to the area for years to come. The site will be anchored by Elanco’s 45-acre global headquarters, which may expand up to 65 acres if the company exercises a restricted land option, and 10 acres of outdoor space along the site’s eastern-most border that will facilitate an expansion of White River State Park and improvements to the river and its western banks.The city of Indianapolis will help increase accessibility to the site through construction of a new, two-way bridge across the river at the current location of Henry Street. In addition, the city and state will partner on the development of a new pedestrian bridge connecting both banks of the White River. The remaining property along the south and southwest sides of the former GM stamping plant site will be available for future mixed-use development that prioritizes connectivity, livability and a seamless integration with the adjacent neighborhoods.“For decades, the GM Stamping plant served as an anchor for near westside Indianapolis families,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. “When the facility closed, residents mourned the loss – not just because of the economic impact, but out of concern for the long-term vibrancy of the community. [Friday’s] announcement will mark a new chapter for the neighborhood, spurring greater connectivity beyond the Mile Square and catalyzing transformative development opportunities along the White River and beyond. I want to thank Elanco for choosing Indianapolis for their global headquarters and look forward to supporting the company’s continued growth with our city’s collaborative partnerships, world-class talent and ecosystem of innovation.”“It is gratifying to return to our roots in Indianapolis – where we started as a subsidiary of Lilly in 1954 – to continue the acceleration of our innovation agenda and provide promising careers to talented Hoosiers while attracting top global talent to the state,” said Simmons. “We couldn’t be more grateful for our partners at the state level who made Indiana the best choice for the future of Elanco.”In addition to providing land for the new headquarters and supporting efforts to backfill Elanco’s Greenfield site, the IEDC offered up to $73 million in conditional tax credits over a 10-year period and up to $4 million in training grants based on the company’s commitment to retain 1,623 Hoosier jobs and create up to 573 new, high-wage jobs. This offer of tax credits for retention is subject to the review of the State Budget Committee. The IEDC offered up to $7 million in assignable redevelopment tax credits, up to $2 million in conditional Hoosier Business Investment (HBI) tax credits, and up to $500,000 for relocation expenses based on the company’s plans to invest significantly in a new global corporate headquarters.The city of Indianapolis, in addition to assisting with connectivity through the vehicular and pedestrian bridges, will offer up to $64 million in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to assist with redevelopment of the site and construction of the corporate headquarters.Source: Indiana Economic Development Corporation Elanco Chooses Downtown Indy for Global Headquarters Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Elanco Chooses Downtown Indy for Global Headquarters Previous articleChris Hurt Retires After 40 Years at Purdue – Gary Truitt with Details on the HAT Friday PodcastNext articleHoosier Ag This Week- The Week in Review Podcast for December 5th Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more
