Increased IPOs could herald market comeback

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULL Thursday 7 October 2010 7:59 pm whatsapp AN increase in initial public offerings (IPO) on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in the last quarter may signal the start of a market recovery, research suggested yesterday, despite the summer months being a traditionally quieter period for listings.PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said listings on Aim increased from 10 in the second quarter, worth a total of £133m, to 12 in the last quarter with a value of £175m. Five of the listings launched in September, while four were launched in July and three in August. This compared with a more traditional decline in main market listings over the summer where there were 20 IPOs with a combined value of £1,410m, compared with 27 listings with a value of £2,529m in the second quarter.David Snell, a partner at PwC, said: “The increase in offering value and number of IPOs since the last quarter is positive and could signal the beginning of a recovery on Aim.” Share Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April Increased IPOs could herald market comeback last_img read more

But before hitting the beach or your favorite park, here are tips from Sherri Flynt, registered/licensed dietitian, Florida Hospital Center for Nutritional Excellence, for packing a healthier picnic basket and ensuring that the only “bugs” joining you are ants.Tap into summer’s bounty. Take plenty of chopped veggies as a crunchy alternative to chips. Try broccoli slaw, tossed with a low-fat poppy seed dressing, instead of traditional slaw. Pack berries, watermelon slices and frozen grapes for a tasty treat on a hot day.Salad alternatives. Rethink mayonnaise-based salads. They’re higher in fat and calories and loved by foodborne illness-causing bacteria. Oil and vinegar dressings (less oil, more vinegar) not only cut back on fat, but the acid keeps food safer. Try out this light and refreshing English cucumber salad.Healthier indulgences for your sweet tooth. If fresh fruit doesn’t satisfy your picnic sweet tooth, bring bite-sized desserts. Angel food cake topped with fresh berries and a bit of light whipped cream, keep it onice, is also a healthier option.Grill safely. Grilling is a picnic favorite. And grilling healthfully is important. To minimizeproductionof compounds that pose a cancer risk, marinate before grilling using thyme, sage, garlic, or rosemary. Because heat and fat are the real culprits, trim all visible fat, flip your meat, poultry, or fish often, and grill at a lower temperature (below 325º F). But don’t undercook. And, be sure to wash your hands! Handling raw meat is a sure fire way to spread bacteria to other foods you may touch.Keep all food safe. According to the Food and Drug Administration, summer months see an increase in foodborne illnesses. To keep those “bugs” from joining your picnic, keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Cold foods should be kept in a cooler and on ice throughout the picnic. Hot foods (like chicken or hot dogs) should be covered in foil to retain the heat. And don’t let any food sit out for very long.Stay well hydrated. While enjoying the outdoors, it’s easy to get dehydrated, especially children as they don’t want to stop their fun to grab a drink. Have plenty of cool water on hand and encourage everyone to drink liberally.Also, have a plan for being active. Whether it’s canoeing, playing a game of Frisbee football, or kicking a soccer ball, picnics are a great time for families to move together.

Solidarity rally for Renisha McBride

first_imgWW photo: Terri KayOakland, Calif. — About 100 people rallied at Rainbow Park in East Oakland on Dec. 14 to show solidarity with the family of Renisha McBride. Nineteen-year-old McBride, who was African-American, was shot and killed Nov. 2 in Dearborn Heights, Mich., a predominantly white suburb of Detroit, when she asked for help in the middle of the night after having been in a car accident.Speakers at the Oakland rally included families of victims of police killings, such as Dionne Smith, mother of James Rivera, Jr., who was killed by Stockton, Calif., police; Cephus “Uncle Bobby” Johnson, uncle of Oscar Grant III, who was killed by Bay Area Rapid Transit police; and Jeralynn Blueford, mother of Alan Blueford, who was killed by Oakland police. Other Black mothers spoke too, about the fear of their own children simply asking for help and falling victim to racist murder.After the rally, the group marched through the East Oakland neighborhood, passing out leaflets about Renisha McBride. They then returned to the park for a potluck meal, which was free to members of the community.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Pioneer Crop Update 7/13/15

first_img Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleIndiana Wheat Harvest Lags along with Corn and Soybean Condition Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Jul 13, 2015 Pioneer Crop Update 7/13/15 Home News Feed Pioneer Crop Update 7/13/15 SHARE Facebook Twitter The almost nonstop rain has made wheat harvest very difficult.  Fields too wet to support equipment have slowed progress, especially in the north.   The excess moisture along with cooler temperatures left some of the matured and harvested wheat sprouting and molding, as well as suffering from aflatoxin and vomitoxin. In the southern half of the state, it is traditional to plant a crop of soybeans after the wheat comes off, but this year Bush says many growers are having second thoughts about double crop soybeans, “Especially farmers closer to Indianapolis are considering not planting a double crop of soybeans. They do not feel they have enough daylight and growing degree days to get the crop to maturity before a frost.”  He says, historically, planting soybeans in mid-July will still work, but perhaps not this  year, “Research shows we can still plant soybeans as late as July 20 and be okay, but many growers are not sure they want to risk it this year.”  He added, if the cool wet weather continues, the likelihood of success with a double crop is questionable. Pioneer Crop Update 7/13/15 Bush recommends that growers walk their fields and make assessments field by field, “A lot of the crops look really ugly, but, in the case of soybeans, there is not much we can do. The yellow and stunted beans will recover with some sun and warmer temperatures.” He added, if growers are concerned, then split the soybean plants and examine if the nodes are still alive. SHARE Brian Bush, with DuPont Pioneer, says most fields in southern counties have been cut, and, although very little progress was made this past week, yields are good, “Despite less than ideal weather conditions, the yields have been good from the 70 to 80 bpa range with even a few fields yielding 100 bpa.”  Yet, in other parts of the state, the yields are not so good. In last week’s report, the USDA cut Indiana wheat yields at an average of 72 bpa down 4 bushels from last year. According to the latest USDA crop update, “Regionally, Indiana winter wheat was 81% mature in the North, 86% in Central and 99% in the South. By region winter wheat harvested was 5% in the North, 25% in Central and 77% in the South. The condition rating put Indiana wheat at 52% good to excellent. The 53% wheat harvest progress was behind the 76% mark of last year and the average of 83%.” Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
