London listed gold explorer Greatland Gold (LSE:GGP) has enjoyed a spectacular five years. In step with the rise in the value of gold in that time, the GGP share price has risen a staggering 8,863%. The bulk of that rise took place in 2020. At the turn of the year, the GGP share price was trading under 2p. Now it is hovering around 12p.The price of gold has been rising over the past few years, and the pandemic has given investors more reason than ever to run to the safety of the shimmering yellow metal.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…Can the GGP share price continue its meteoric rise?So, is gold really the haven we deem it to be, and can the GGP share price continue its impressive success? Gold has enjoyed its safe-haven status for decades now because it holds its value and serves as an insurance against economic turmoil. However, investing in gold producers is not such a straightforward bet. Although the underlying asset is valuable, getting it out of the ground is an expensive and difficult process.GGP has been listed on the AIM stock exchange since July 2006. It explores for various natural resources, including copper and nickel, but its core focus is on gold. It is advancing its Havieron asset in Paterson, Western Australia, which has enjoyed great drilling success. This is being funded by Newcrest Mining, a well-known miner in Australia. Havieron is a large gold-copper deposit and has brought a great deal of positive shareholder sentiment to GGP this year. This has given a big boost to confidence in the GGP share price.GGP is now worth £450m and is in a robust financial position with approximately £6m in cash at the end of June. It has also confirmed its financing will allow it to conduct all planned activities throughout the coming year. It has also just been awarded a new licence to expand its Paterson landholding for further exploration of gold-copper deposits. Gold is goodGold is thriving on global uncertainty and geopolitical tension, so if things calm down and harmony is restored, then the price of gold will fall back. However, the pandemic is making this look less and less likely. Combined with the US-China trade war and oil price pressures, it looks to me like the price of gold will remain high for some time.While I do not see it enjoying another thousand-fold rise, I think GGP looks a robust company for now. However, mining is one of the most volatile sectors of the stock market and not an advisable place for beginners to stock market investing to put their cash. I will continue to steer clear of mining stocks, including the tempting lows of the Glencore share price. I prefer FTSE 100 constituents and will avoid the GGP share price too.

Jean De Villiers smashed by Benoit August in Heineken Cup Semi-Final

first_imgFriday May 7, 2010 Jean De Villiers smashed by Benoit August in Heineken Cup Semi-Final As we head into the weekend theres still a few clips that Id like to get up on RD before the end of the day. The Super 14 Pick of the Week for one, but if things take too long, that will carry over to be combined with the next round. This clip however is of an outstanding hit from last weekend, so needs to be shared now.It comes from the Heineken Cup semi final between Biarritz and Munsterthat saw the Munstermen sent packing as the home side took the match 18-7, progressing to the final where they will face Toulouse, who themselves beat Leinster 26-16.Biarritz hooker Benoit August put the hit in on Munster and Springbok centre Jean De Villiers as he handled the ball for the second time in the movement before August smoked him.It started with De Villiers making a trademark intercept, but ended with him questioning if his ribs were still in tact. A few questioned if August was not possibly offside at the time, but it was open play and advantage was being played, so the ref had no problems with it.De Villiers, who will return to South Africa to aim towards the 2011 World Cup, has said that hes loved the northern hemisphere experience, and would advise youngsters to do the same if they get the chance.“I would make the same decision all over again. In fact, I would definitely advise any youngster back home to do it if they get the opportunity, because that is what rugby provides you with. It’s the chance to play abroad, live in a different country and travel the world: it’s been fantastic for me,” said De Villiers, who believes hes a better player now.“I started off slowly with them and then got a good kick in the butt. You learn from that and I felt that afterwards, it really went well. I scored a couple of tries and was pretty happy with my performances from December onwards.”Regarding the French, De Villiers says that theyre in a great position right now.“With two French teams in the Heineken Cup final, one in the Amlin Challenge final and a French Grand Slam this winter, this is a siren signal for world rugby about their strength. They are really strong at the moment.“The quality of players they have and the fact that they are selecting the right players with great variety, makes them very dangerous,” he added.

Facing a reservoir built to store agricultural water, the site is recovering its primitive landscape day by day and trying to resemble a natural lake. This place might have formed a natural boundary with waters along a slope. But one day, humans hands found the place, and they cut paths through it and laid out stone walls along these paths to impose a hierarchy on the land. Inevitably, however, a development rush that can be commonly found in any suburb areas came in. Such a situation requested to establish a new relationship between architecture and land as well as architecture and architecture.  Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThe plots given to three architects share borders with each other, but their different hierarchical position is forming a clear boundary. And the topographic uniqueness of land has been disappeared long ago. Implementing an arrangement plan that makes architectures correspond with this man-made boundary is meaningless here. Therefore, a new order is established based on a completely new arrangement plan to erase the existing boundary. The scenery of the surrounding water space is coordinated to provide not only a visual experience but also a physical experience through various activities so that it can serve as a medium to embrace water. This water reflects clouds in the sky and pine trees nearby, and through an illusion of  primitiveness that the site once had in the past, it might be able to give an opportunity to experience the mythical story of Narcissus. Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Section 1Spread out over the water, 7 individual sections in the form of a 3×3 cube don’t specify a fixed function. Here users can freely define the function of each section when they are occupying it for a certain period of time, and its functional sequence is different from the one of an unusual living space. Unlike repeating floor plans, sections interlocking at different heights and angles and various floor levels make you feel as if you are walking the original terrain, and while you stroll inside and outside the building, lights drape around skylights and flow in through a minimized number of openings to be diffused by the water surface, and they eventually permeate into the inside to blur the borders with both the land and water.  Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanSave this picture!© Younghan Chhung ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessRenovation of Jing’an Business Building / ArchUnitsSelected ProjectsC Guesthouse / archiplus.ptSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: American Standard, BONG LIM, Eplus, samhwa Architects: YounghanChung Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” South Korea Save this picture!© Yoon Joonhwan+ 32Curated by Martita Vial Share Floating Cubes / YounghanChung ArchitectsSave this projectSaveFloating Cubes / YounghanChung Architects Year:  ArchDaily “COPY” 2018 Area:  80 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeYounghanChung ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCheongwon-gunSouth KoreaPublished on July 13, 2019Cite: “Floating Cubes / YounghanChung Architects” 12 Jul 2019.

Newspaper trucks, latest target of anti-media violence in Pakistan?

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Pakistan to go further June 3, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper trucks, latest target of anti-media violence in Pakistan? RSF_en PakistanAsia – Pacific News PakistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns the appalling climate of intimidation reigning in Pakistan after an attack on provincial newspaper reporter Zafar Aaheer on 31 May and several attacks on newspaper distribution trucks in the past few days.Aaheer, who reports for the Daily Jang newspaper in Multan, in the eastern province of Punjab, was attacked on his way home by gunmen, who beat him with the butts of their pistols, causing serious injuries.“The attacks on Aaheer and the newspaper trucks were clearly designed to intimidate media workers and deter them from doing their work,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “Pakistan is already one of the world’s deadliest countries for journalists and these constant attacks just reinforces the feeling of danger in which they have to operate.”The latest attacks have come at a particularly tense moment for the media, which have been the target of a major smear campaign ever since the TV news station Geo News broadcast claims by its leading anchor, Hamid Mir, that the intelligence agencies were behind a shooting attack in which he was badly injured on 19 April.As the Daily Jang is part of the same media group as Geo News, it is also one of the main targets of the campaign of smears and intimidation. Cable TV operators briefly suspended transmission of Geo TV after receiving threatening letters and in some cases also bullets. The masked gunmen who attacked Aaheer on 31 May, smashing the window of his car, called him an “agent of the Indians and the Jews” and said: “You have escaped earlier and now you can’t.” A threatening letter sent to Daily Jang employees on 5 May urged them to leave this “traitor” media group and demanded the closure of its Peshawar offices. Attacks on newspaper trucksOne of the most recent attacks on newspaper distribution trucks was in Rawalpindi on 30 May, when a dozen unidentified individuals armed with pistols and Kalashnikovs intercepted a truck with copies of The News bound for Islamabad. They told the driver to get out if he wanted to save his life. When he refused to move, they opened fire without hitting the truck and then soaked it with kerosene and set it on fire. Similar methods were used in an attack on a truck carrying hundreds of copies of the Daily Jang and The News on 25 May.The driver of a satellite news-gathering van was attacked and tortured by three individuals on 23 May before managing to escape. They doused the vehicle with gasoline but, before they could set it on fire, police arrived and they fled shouting death threats.A similar attack was reported on a truck carrying thousands of copies of the Jang newspaper in Karachi. The driver was not hurt.These attacks have forced the targeted newspapers to reprint many thousands of copies.In response to the constant threats and harassment, the lead story on Geo News and in Jang on 26 May was an apology to the intelligence agencies for their coverage of the shooting attack on Hamid Mir, which they described as “excessive, distressful and emotional.”Pakistan is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Retired policeman rediscovers his love for art

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day The more McCloud “studied” the faces of the bluesmen, the more interested he became in them and their music.He has recently begun a series of paintings of some of the most popular blues singers since the early 1900s. Men like B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Howling Wolf and Blind Lemon Jefferson.“Amazing and amazingly different,” is the way Pruitt describes the artwork of his friend.McCloud unveiled his “blues collection” at the Wiregrass Blues event at The Studio Thursday night. And those who attended found it to be amazing and very different.Wiley White, Johnson Center for the Arts development, said McCloud’s work is unique and captures, not only the images of the famous bluesmen but their character as well.“Hopefully, we will be able to feature the artwork of Ed McCloud at the Johnson Center soon,” she said. Print Article By Jaine Treadwell By Secrets Revealed This Video Will Soon Be Banned. Watch Before It’s… Published 3:00 am Friday, May 1, 2015 Email the author Latest Stories Sponsored Content Messenger Photo/Jaine TreadwellEd McCloud, left, stands with Jim Pruitt as they talk about his work. McCloud and Pruitt had booths that stood next to each other at the flea market at East Brook, which was the beginning of their friendship.Some things happen by chance.If, by chance, Ed McCloud and Jim Pruitt had not been assigned booths side by side at the flea market at East Brook, they would not have become friends.If they had not become friends, McCloud might not have rediscovered and/or revived his artistic talent. “We started talking and got to be good friends,” McCloud said. “I had retired from the police department and had started drawing a little. Jim saw my drawings and said I should do more of it. That I had talent.”The more McCloud drew, the more he wanted do draw. He was interested in portraits and started paying attention to the artwork in magazines and entertainment posters. He decided to try his hand at capturing the likenesses of some rather famous people.His friend in the booth next door had album covers that he found attractive and faces he wanted to paint.“The faces of the men who played the blues ….there was something about them.” “I have always like to draw,” McCloud said. “When I young, I was always drawing something. When I went into the Army, instead of going out on the town, I would stay in the barracks and draw.”But, as a member of the Montgomery Police Department, McCloud had little time for doodling in the arts and, over time, he forgot how much he enjoying drawing.When he set up a booth at the flea market to sell his wares, he just happened to be next to a gentleman who was a collector of vinyl records and was selling off his extras.

Severe storms pose threat to Northeast, Mid-Atlantic

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The same storm system that brought 11 confirmed tornadoes to the South will move east Friday and bring severe thunderstorms from the Carolinas to the Mid-Atlantic while heavy rain arrives in New England. There were seven tornadoes in Louisiana from Wednesday into Thursday, including the strongest, an EF3 tornado in Ruston that killed two people. As the storm reaches the East Coast, the greatest threat for severe weather and the heaviest rain will be Friday afternoon and into the evening hours.The most severe storms will cover an area extending north from Wilmington, North Carolina, through Raleigh, North Carolina; Richmond, Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and into Philadelphia.The biggest threat with these storms will be damaging winds over 60 mph, and possibly a few tornadoes and flash flooding.Spring snowstormA storm system will move out of the Rockies late Friday into Saturday morning and spread rain and snow into the Dakotas for Saturday morning.The storm system will move into the Midwest on Saturday afternoon, spreading a swath of snow from southern Minnesota into Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana.The heaviest snow will fall in southern Minnesota, northern Iowa, southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, where some areas could see close to a half a foot of snow.At this time, it looks like the heaviest snow will stay south of the Twin Cities and just north of Chicago, but since Chicago is very close to the heavy snow it could be in trouble if the storm track shifts further south.

Oxford startup receives £4m to develop ‘biological superglue’

first_imgSpyBiotech, an Oxford University company developing a biological superglue to tackle diseases and pandemics, has been given a £4m investment from the venture capital arm GV of Alphabet, which owns Google, and Oxford Sciences Innovation (OSI).As a result of the funding, the startup will be able to become an independent business. The investment, which is a part of early-stage seed funding, enables SpyBiotech to prepare for phase one trials.The company’s intellectual property follows research from Oxford University’s Department of Biochemistry and the Jenner Institute to separate the bacteria that causes strep throat, a tonsil-related infection.When they are separated, the two parts of the bacteria are highly attracted to each other and want to re-bond, with this desire to reconnect forming the “biotech superglue” that can be utilised to bond things together.Consequently, it is hoped that this principle can be used to develop vaccines, and it is thought that the technology can be effective especially when there are quickly developing vaccines for fast-spreading epidemics.Sumi Biswas, Associate Professor at the Jenner Institute at Oxford University and is one of four Oxford academics who formed the startup’s founding team, released a statement: “We view this superglue technology as a game changer to enable faster development of effective vaccines against major global diseases.“We are excited to begin the journey of taking this versatile and innovative approach forward and moving our new vaccines from the laboratory to human clinical testing.”Speaking to the Telegraph, Gregg Bayes-Brown, Marketing and Communications Manager at Oxford University Innovation, added: “We rarely ever see a corporate like GV come in at the seed into university companies. If this is the start of a new trend, it could be massive.”Lachlan MacKinnon, principal at OSI, told TechCrunch: “We see the Spy technology as the missing link in rapid and robust VLP vaccine design and see GV as a natural co-investment partner to take this forward.“We are privileged to be working with four founders who bring such an impressive combination of academic prowess and clinical-stage experience to the company.”Tom Hulme, general partner at GV, said: “SpyBiotech has established a novel approach that shows promise in a number of markets. We’re looking forward to working with a team of world class scientists to develop more effective vaccines for a wide range of global diseases.”The news follows a series of innovation booms from the University of Oxford in recent months. In 2016, the number of spinouts doubled to 21, while seed funding for these start-ups increased by fivefold to £52.6m.A second round of fundraising has also been planned by SpyBiotech, and the company is set to announce a leadership team in the coming months.last_img read more
