Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy cheap stocks in this market rebound to retire early

first_imgForget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy cheap stocks in this market rebound to retire early I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Peter Stephens | Sunday, 14th June, 2020 Buying cheap stocks after the recent market crash may appear to be a risky move. After all, the stock market could move lower in the short run, should there be a second wave of coronavirus, or if its impact on the world economy’s growth rate is greater than expected.However, the chances of a market rebound and long-term recovery seem to be high. As such, now could be the right time to avoid other assets, such as gold and Bitcoin. Instead, purchasing cheap stocks while they offer wide margins of safety could increase your chances of retiring early.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…Diverse opportunitiesWith the stock market having experienced a hugely challenging period over recent months, it’s unsurprising investors may be considering purchasing other assets, such as Bitcoin and gold, rather than cheap stocks. Their prices have outperformed the wider stock market over the past few months. And this trend may continue in the short run.Gold, for example, has historically offered defensive appeal as it’s viewed as a store of wealth by many investors. However, its price level is currently close to an all-time high. Therefore, there may be less scope for capital growth than there has been in the past. And, with investor sentiment towards riskier assets such as cheap stocks likely to improve over the coming years, gold may fail to maintain its recent momentum over the long run.Bitcoin, meanwhile, has surged higher following its falls in the earlier part of 2020. Investors seem to be attracted to its diversification potential. However, with Bitcoin’s price determined solely by investor sentiment, it could offer a highly volatile outlook.It may also suffer from regulatory risks, while other virtual currencies could become increasingly popular and reduce demand for Bitcoin. As such, it offers a high-risk outlook compared to cheap stocks. And that may make it unsuitable for investors who are seeking to build a retirement nest egg.Buying cheap stocksBy contrast, buying cheap stocks today and holding them for the long run could be a sound strategy for anyone who’s looking to retire early.The track record of the stock market shows it’s been able to successfully recover from every one of its past crises and, in doing so, has posted new record highs.Although the prospect of this taking place may seem unlikely at present while news flow is negative, investors with long-term time horizons are likely to have sufficient scope for the stock market to deliver a successful turnaround after its recent crash.Therefore, buying a diverse range of high-quality companies while they trade at low prices could improve your retirement prospects. As well as cheap stocks, the stock market offers diversification potential and income appeal. That could further improve your portfolio’s risk/reward ratio, compared to other assets such as Bitcoin and gold.

At 30p, is the Lloyds share price a bargain not to be missed?

Stuart Blair owns shares in Barclays. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img The stock market crash has produced a number of bargains, yet the Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) share price may be one of the greatest. The bank stock has fallen by over 50% year-to-date, and its recovery from lows of around 27p has been limited. But with the economy starting to restart, is it now the perfect time to buy?The Lloyds share price is low for a reasonBank stocks have been heavily affected by the pandemic, and Lloyds is no exception. With the economy at a standstill, the Bank of England has taken drastic measures to ensure a V-shaped recovery. This has included cutting interest rates twice, so that the current UK base rate stands at just 0.1%. While this can increase the amount of borrowing, it can also damage the profitability of banks. An increasing number of loan defaults has also added to the misery of the financial sector.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…Lloyds has also been negatively affected by the collapse in the housing market. Lloyds is the UK’s biggest mortgage provider, and this means that revenue from this area has fallen drastically.A culmination of these factors has significantly reduced profits and resulted in poor earnings in the first quarter. In fact, profits after tax were £480m, which is also a 60% decline compared to last year. These poor results subsequently saw five consecutive days of losses for the Lloyds share price. But with half-year results fast approaching, any improvement on this could be met with sharp gains.What does the future hold?The major news recently was that CEO António Horta-Osório will be stepping down from his role after nearly 10 years. While he has managed to exit the government bail-out and repair the bank’s finances, profits have stayed flat over the past couple of years. So I believe a change in leadership could provide the bank with new ideas and a more profitable future.The dividend also seems like a short-term loss. Like the majority of other bank stocks, Lloyds cut its dividend to help preserve cash in preparation for loan defaults. Yet the current consensus would see its return in 2021 at a yield of approximately 6%. As such, with the Lloyds share price so cheap at the moment, this could be an ideal time to buy.The bank stock I preferyet while I would happily buy the Lloyds share price, and I think there is significant upside potential, I prefer Barclays as a bank stock. Why? Firstly, Barclays benefits from a more diversified business model that includes an investment banking operation. This investment bank sector has been largely unaffected by loan defaults and low interest rates. As such, it has been able to drive profits for the bank. This resulted in stronger first-quarter earnings than at Lloyds and slightly more momentum on its share price. I’d choose Barclays over Lloyds in this case.

This building is a design room for a Japanese sneaker brand as well as a residential house. The site is in Takarazuka-city of Hyogo Prfecture. It is located in an exclusive residential district that commands an entire view of the Osaka Plain. The architecture is built on the slope of a hill with an elevation of 330 meters. The level difference of the site is 8 meters. Taking advantage of the slope, one of the characteristics of this site, an architecture which suits the desires of two persons is built.

To be warmed up. A lower floor, a house, invisible in a mountain. The site has an 8 meter difference in height. 8 meters is higher than a two-story building. The lower floor is in the ground of the slanted site. It is invisible from the upper road. There is a bedrock layer 1.5 meters beneath the ground surface. It is so hard that even a shovel car could not crush it. Dig to the bedrock and the foundation is supported by this bedrock. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraBuild two mounds using the soil dug. Insert a residence between these two mounds. Built on “a new topography-mountain”, all parts of the building are close to the earth. The mountains are designed to emphasize the slope. An exclusive residential area on a hill features a good commanding view as its sales point. Development of this kind of community is planned in a similar way with no individuality. We consider this phenomenon as “a loss of topography”. We have dreamed of a mountain whose slope was scraped away. The lost mountain is designed into this architecture. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraArchitecture is not built on a site where the slope is flattened. By contrary the angle of the slope is increased, which results in two mounds. Between these two mounds a living space is built, and the upper story floating on these two mounds is a design room. B. Flying. An upper floor, a design room Observe the Gulf of Osaka, high-rise buildings, Kobe port, Kansai Airport, Itami Airport, and shadowy blue mountains. The land originally slanted at an angle of 18 degrees. Mounds are built there to let the slope undulate. These mountain waves are topography where no previous topography existed. The upper floor was designed to float on these mountain waves. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraWe have designed the form which passes over the waves. Is it a dream of a long-distance ship going over high waves or is it a dragon? The dream of this architecture is like a voyage setting out. An 18 meter-long terrace. The sea and a range of mountains 60 kilometers away can be observed. When standing on this terrace, rows of other houses in this area are out of sight. This is the way we have arranged this architecture and its openings. You can get a sense that your body is slightly floating. It is our intention to give the sense of being on a deck of ships, but not in the house. The design room on the upper floor of this architecture is a ship. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe plan is designed in L-shape. The edge protruding greatly from the slope is an opening that swallows the outside. Straight eaves run amidst the curvilinear forms of the topography. The eaves project in a powerful manner not to be beaten by the inherent force of the topography. They are thin, thick, short, long and carved. To be protected by the house, yet at the same time have the feeling of flying away. Making two extremes into one. This is realized in the architecture in the corresponding forms of the upper and lower floors. It is a cave and also a nautical form. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIt is flying away, yet it is anchored. It is drifting, yet it is homely. It is sky, and it is Earth. It is far, yet it is near. 1.5 meters beneath the ground surface is hard bedrock. The foundation is raised on this bedrock. For this, the excavated earth was used and the red curving line was designed to achieve this. In other words, by heaping up the excavated soil, a new undulating mountainous topography is built. The lower floor is built under the mountain. The form which runs over the mountains is the upper floor. The corresponding upper and lower floors are made into one form. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThis is a slope when architecture is erased. The architecture of the “house” is a “mountain.” The plan for this slope is to shape the mountain structurally, but that goal was to let people feel the uninterrupted flow of the curves that define the mountain. Let the people have a sense of closeness to the wave-like mountain. A small change to the curve will lead to a loss of balance, affecting the way openings should be designed, the mountain, and the entire architecture will also have to be change its form. However at this moment not even one person felt unnatural when standing on this undulating slop. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraA person standing on a slope. A person crouching on a slope. A person flying off a slope. Only on a slope can people look back on the road they’ve climbed and, also can look at the way they will go from now on.

Fundraising platform that raises money from rare sounds

first_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The Global Sound Movement has launched an online sample library that enables music producers to make use of extremely rare and exotic instruments and sounds, and returns the money made through their downloads to the communities the sounds come from. Following a recent visit to Uganda with London-based charity Sound Foundation, the group, which comprises academics and students from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), created the sample library to be used in two online samplers: Logic’s EXS24 and Native Instrument’s Kontakt.Recorded in hi-resolution, the library is made up of sounds from rare hand-built instruments and the local environment, providing audio collections that capture the sounds and ambiance of Uganda. The sounds are royalty free and can be used commercially by the music industry. The library consists of more than 240 audio loops and over 2.5GB worth of environmental recordings.One hundred per cent of the money generated by sample library downloads, minus just the payment platform costs, is given back to the communities from which the sounds were recorded through Sound Foundation, to help to fund the economic growth of these areas.The sample library is an ongoing project for the Global Sound Movement, and one that the group plans to expand following trips to Cyprus and China next year.Phil Holmes, senior lecturer in music production at UCLan said:“The aim is to connect communities through music, and it’s a win-win situation – the communities receive income from the sales of the libraries and the music industry gets high-quality, unique sounds that can be used in new material.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9  62 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Fundraising platform that raises money from rare sounds Advertisement  61 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 19 May 2016 | News Tagged with: fundraising musiclast_img read more


Seneca Therapeutics Expands Product Pipeline Adding Six New SVV-001 Armed Constructs Targeting TEM 8…

first_img Facebook Pinterest Local NewsBusiness Facebook Twitter Seneca Therapeutics Expands Product Pipeline Adding Six New SVV-001 Armed Constructs Targeting TEM 8 Expression WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 center_img TAGS  Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Seneca Therapeutics, Inc. (“STI”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of targeted oncolytic immunotherapeutics based on Seneca Valley Virus (SVV-001), announced today the expansion of its R&D pipeline with six new armed gene therapy/oncolytic constructs directed against important cancer targets and indications. STI also announced an SVV-001 Armed Construct program developing precision medicine constructs expressing patient-specific Neo-antigens. Each of these new gene therapy technologies uses SVV to exclusively target cancer cells with TEM 8 expression. Normal cells lack significant expression of TEM 8 and are therefore not infected by SVV-001, and so the armed transgene will not express in normal cells. Studies in multiple human tumor types indicates TEM 8 expression is an adverse indicator of long-term survival and is associated with cancer metastasis. STI intends to develop each combination as an IV product, taking advantage of the multiple IV dosing program currently underway at the company:SVV-012- SVV+ Anti PD-L1 – “Addition of a checkpoint inhibitor is designed to enhance the CD8+ T-cell response against tumors”SVV-024 – SVV+ Enhanced IL-2 Gene – “This construct is designed to bind IL-2 receptors to activate the immune response in tumors without activating CD25 and thereby avoid toxicities observed with the IL-2 protein”SVV-037 – SVV+ CXCL-9 – “This construct is designed to express the chemokine CXCL-9 in the tumor microenvironment and promote recruitment of immune cells into treated tumors”SVV-044 – SVV+ TGF-beta decoy – “This construct is designed to block TGF-beta signaling in tumors and avoid immunosuppression”SVV- 058 SVV+ Nitroreductase – “This nitroreductase construct is designed to function as a prodrug and convert cytotoxic metabolites selectively in the tumor microenvironment”SVV- 069 – SVV+ IL-2/IL-15 Fusion Protein – “Vectors delivering IL-2/IL-15 agonists are designed to improve immune cell trafficking and infiltration into tumors and provide both T-cell and NK-cell signals” Each of these products either has been or is being produced in STI’s SVV platform. Animal studies for each product are anticipated to begin in 2Q21. The SVV-001 Armed Construct for Neo-antigens program plans to use patient specific neo-antigens to take advantage of the rapid two-week development cycle for SVV-001 Armed Constructs. “SVV itself has many distinct advantages over other forms of cancer therapy. Chief among these is the exquisite cancer cell specificity of both SVV replication and the expression of a transgene. Together, these make SVV a unique and powerful multi-modal platform,” said Dr. Paul Hallenbeck, Ph.D. Founder and President of STI. About Seneca Therapeutics Seneca Therapeutics was founded by Dr. Paul Hallenbeck to develop SVV-001 related products. Seneca Therapeutics is also developing armed versions of SVV-001 to selectively express gene product(s) that are inserted into the genome of SVV-001 and create additional anti-tumor effects.

The development comes after a Division bench led by Justice Rakesh Kumar rejected an application filed by the State Government seeking recall of the said order. “I’m not allowing anyone to challenge my order in front of me…one may go to Supreme Court,” the Judge had remarked during the course of hearing.The Advocate General complained that the bench had proceeded to reject the application without providing him adequate opportunity to present the case. He submitted that he wanted to cite certain precedents that allows a Judge to recall his own order but the Court did not allow him to complete his submissions.The AG had raised objection regarding the jurisdiction of the Court to deal with the question of “constitutional breakdown” and urged the bench to treat it as a preliminary issue. On October 1, the bench, also including Justice Uma Devi, had converted the hearing on a batch of habeas corpus petitions and petitions alleging police excesses as a hearing on the issue whether there is a “constitutional breakdown” in the State of Andhra Pradesh. Andhra Pradesh High Court To Examine If There Is “Constitutional Breakdown” In State Of AP It had directed the government counsel to make submissions on whether the court can record a finding that there is Constitutional breakdown “in the light of the circumstances which are prevailing in the State of AP.” Responding to this, the State had filed an application for recall, while highlighting that in the absence of any pleadings in the writ petition, the court may not examine the issue regarding failure of constitutional breakdown in the state. Rejecting the application on Monday, the bench observed : “On 1/10/2020 when the present PIL was taken up with other 16 cases the Court noted that on a number of occasions there was “illegal picking up of persons by police” and after filing habeas corpus either they were being remanded or released. The Court had summoned the DGP who gave assurance that instructions will be given to the Police personnel to follow all the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in DK Basu case and other amendments that followed the pronouncement. Though assurance was given by the DGP, rampantly such excesses by police were going on and this court also noticed that after passing the judicial order, the High Court was attacked on social media by number of persons including one member of Parliament belonging to the party in power… This court had asked that State counsel may come prepared on the point as too whether in the circumstances which are prevailing, court can record a finding whether there is Constitutional breakdown. The State counsel participated on number of days in present proceedings, even thereafter no objection was raised and now the present IA is filed with prayer to recall the earlier order (dated October 1). This Court is of the view that if a party is aggrieved by an order of the court, it cannot be allowed to question the same before the same court. There was no embargo on the State to approach the superior court, but they continued to appear before us only with a view to drag the matter. Therefore, we reject the present application for recall.” At this juncture, Government Pleader, Senior Advocate SS Prasad pointed out that it was wrong to say that he dragged the matter for several days as on each of the hearing, the Court had recorded that proceedings were subject to hearing on the question of constitutional breakdown.SS Prasad argued that correct facts and docket proceedings are not being recorded. Govt contests court’s power to suo moto examine constitutional breakdown Govt Pleader SS Prasad submitted that the Court lacks jurisdiction to consider the suo moto question regarding constitutional breakdown of the State machinery. He submitted that the term ‘constitutional breakdown of State machinery’ used in Article 356 is not defined and as per previous judgments, the same occurs when there is political turmoil, judicial anarchy or legislative failure in the State. Prasad also submitted that the present petition does not raise any question regarding breakdown of state machinery and the Court should refrain from expanding the scope of hearings. Reliance was placed on AIR 1988 SC 1883, Kehar Singh v. State of Delhi, where it was held as under: “This Court has frequently emphasized that the decision of the Court should be confined to the narrow points directly raised before it. There should not be any exposition of the law at large and outside the range of facts of the case. There should not be even obiter observations in regard to questions not directly involved in the case. These principles are more relevant particularly when we are dealing with constitutional questions. I should not transgress these limits.” The Bench has decided to continue hearing of the matter on Wednesday, December 16. Other developments: Petitioner’s Submissions on Merits The Petitioner in the case at hand is an ex-MLA of the Telugu Desam party. He had submitted that the State was curbing democratic form of dissent and not providing adequate security to the agitation programs that are being conducted by political parties. Advocate S. Pranathi, appearing for the Petitioner, pointed out that the protestors, who were in favour of formation of three capitals in the State were being allowed to protest freely, along with permissions to use loudspeakers, raise black flags, etc. at a place from where usually all VIP convoys pass. However, she submitted, another group of protestors demonstrating within the Mandadam village, i.e. 1 km away from the abovementioned place of protest, in favour of formation of capital at Amaravati, were not being permitted to use loudspeakers, paste posters, use placards, etc. “There are no reasonable restrictions in this case…They have to be given same permissions that others are given…why this discrimination by the State?” she said. Reliance was placed on the Supreme Court’s verdict in Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sanghatan v. Union Of India, recognizing the right to lead peaceful protests. She alleged that the Police authorities are working as per tunes of the present govt and in the process, they are violating the rights of citizens. She submitted that the police are registering cases under the SC/ST Atrocities Act, against the persons belonging to those communities itself. “That is the kind of application of mind… All these points add up to show that state is not working the way it should be,” she said. It may be noted that the State Government had challenged the locus standi of the Petitioner, a political figure, to maintain a PIL. Disputing this, the Petitioner submitted that merely because he has contested from a particular party does not make him a party not interested in the welfare of the public. “I am an ex-MLA from this place. I have a right to stand for my people… I did not hide any fact… I have admitted that I am an ex-MLA,” Pranathi submitted for the Petitioner. Reliance was placed on Chairman, Railway Board & Ors v. Chandrima Das & Ors. At this juncture, the State counsel submitted that as per settled law, PIL can be filed by persons who are suffering from poverty, scarcity of funds, or who are precluded them from approaching the Court due to other disability. Once the Petitioner submits that he is from a political party, it can’t be a PIL. Reliance was placed on State Of Uttaranchal v. Balwant Singh Chaufal & Ors. Admissibility of Additional Affidavit filed by Petitioner The State had submitted that a 700-pages long additional affidavit filed by the Petitioner was prompted by what the Court observed in its order dated October 1. It was submitted that even though the said affidavit was filed in supplement to the writ petition, the facts averred therein had no context to the reliefs sought in the petition. Govt Pleader SS Prasad urged the Court not to take on record the contents of the affidavit, filed at the fag end of the arguments. In case the court decides to rely on the affidavit, he submitted, the Petitioner should explain the context and relevancy of the contents and judgments relied therein with respect to reliefs sought in writ petition and the State should be allowed to file its reply thereon. The Court was of the opinion that it would not be fair to peruse the facts mentioned in the additional document but said that the Court may rely on the judgments cited therein.The hearing will continue on Wednesday.Justice Rakesh Kumar was transferred from Patna High Court to Andhra Pradesh High Court last year. Shortly before his transfer to AP High Court, Justice Rakesh Kumar had created a furore in the Patna High Court by passing a direction for CBI investigation into alleged corruption in the subordinate judiciary. In that order, Justice Rakesh Kumar had made startling observations such as “corruption in this High Court is an open secret” and that “judges were more interested in enjoying privileges than administering justice”.Soon after that order, a 11-judge bench assembled to suspend it after observing that Justice Kumar’s observations as “judicial and administrative overreach”. The High Court and the State Government are seemingly on a collision course. Last month, the Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had shot off a letter to the Chief Justice of India alleging that few judges of the High Court were trying to destabilize the government by passing adverse orders against it on petitions filed by the TPD, the political opposition.The High Court has ordered a status quo on the three-capital decision and has stayed the SIT inquiry announced by the government into Amaravati land scam.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Merciless Keble martyr Saints

first_imgKeble 71 – 17 St. Anne’s/St. John’s Keble, staking their claim to retain the Cuppers title, thoroughly outplayed St. Anne’s/St. John’s in a onesided quarter final clash. They showcased what they are capable of, and proved that they remain the team to beat this year. The two teams last met in 2005, in the depths of Division Three at the beginning of Keble’s epic march to the summit of college rugby. Then, as now, the huge margin of Keble’s victory reflected a corresponding gulf in training and fitness. The Saints arrived in the quarterfinals having eked out the narrowest of victories against Worcester, their sixth straight win this season, during which they earned the Division Three title. Keble, meanwhile, were rattled by Magdalen’s spirited challenge, clawing back the lead only towards the end of a tense and brutal encounter. However, if the League and Cuppers champions know anything it is how to win, their unbeaten record stretching back more than a year. From the match’s beginning, Keble were ruthless in executing their game plan, pinning the Saints back with accurate kicks and using their well-drilled pack. Driving mauls from the line-out produced four tries in the first half alone. The experienced Brendan McKerchar at the base of the scrum and a raft of other University players marshalled the disciplined home side to make victory quickly seem inevitable. The Saints looked intimidated by their renowned opponents, and suffered from poor decision-making when in possession, allowing the Keble backs to test the defences out wide and run in tries of their own. Frustration led to a caution for Saints enforcer Ed Slack, who lashed out at his opposite number having made a fearsome covering tackle. Despite pace in the front row and throughout the pack, making them competitive at the breakdown, Saints looked bereft of answers and by half-time the match looked as if it might provide little more than kicking practice for the Keble fly-half. However, the underdogs emerged from the break looking much less cowed, with flanker George Nava leading a series of ferocious tackles to earn turnover ball. Centre Dan Simon displayed trademark panache to take advantage of one of these and sprinted over the Keble try-line, which had never before looked at all threatened. Mildly perturbed, Keble did not relax the pressure and maintained a stranglehold on the set pieces, reducing the Saints to feeding from scraps. Their glut of possession was well-used by strong runners who maintained a steady stream of tries throughout the second half. Playing for pride, the Saints were unbowed and snatched a second try through Matt Jones’ interception. While the result was beyond doubt, there was still a large and partisan crowd to impress. The match remained competitive to the last, both sides having to defend their own lines and doing so with intensity. The uniformly powerful Keble forwards drove hard at the fringes of rucks, while the Saints used their own battering rams in the shape of Stuart Hindle and Oli Adams to attempt a break-through. Keble’s technical superiority and clinical training eventually won them this contest and allowed them to open up an unassailable lead. However, the plucky Saints were able to get the last word, stringing together a genuinely impressive run of plays to put scrum-half Matt Evans-Young over in the corner. Keble laid down a marker of their superiority in this match, and their semi-final opponents will have to find a way to contain their heavy physical firepower. It is testament to their discipline and refusal to relax while on top that not since November 2006 has a side put more than 17 points on them in a league match. The Saints meanwhile should not be dispirited by defeat from the masters.by Huw Davies and Peter Woodlast_img read more


A day in the life of…

first_img6.30amThe alarm goes off and I head for the kitchen, where I make myself a cup of tea. The first cup of the day is always the best! Before long, I hear my family up and about. My youngest daughter Caron is a real morning person – must take after her old man.7.15amI leave my house in the Lake District and head for the office on the Wirral. I’m no sooner out of the drive than the phone rings – it’s one of my key account managers calling with good news. We’ve recently conducted trials for a key customer on one of our soft roll concentrates. The results have been extremely positive and we’ve won the business. What a result!I turn on the radio for the news headlines, then switch to Radio 2.9.00amI arrive at the office in record time, despite being bumper-to-bumper along the M6. I start reading my e-mails, when our head of product development drops in. He updates me on a new cake mix we’re developing – it’s looking very promising and we agree the next step is to run a trial with a customer. We’re conscious that consumer demands are constantly changing, which is why we continually seek to innovate and update our products.9.30amI listen to my messages – there’s one from the sales director at one of our major wholesalers. I call him back and he tells me one of our competitors is looking to gain market share in a particular area – something we’re keen to prevent. We discuss how best to tackle this and end the call on a happy note – one of the products we’ve been promoting is selling better than ever. Onwards and upwards!10.00amI grab a cup of coffee on the way to meet the marketing team. Top of the agenda are plans for the launch of our new range of healthier bread ingredients. The range consists of concentrates and dough conditioners that respond to the healthy eating trend, including low-GI, reduced salt, higher fibre and clean label propositions. Research shows us there’s a massive demand for ’bread with bits in’ and this has created a major buzz internally in anticipation of the launch. We’re keen to help bakers remind their customers that bread is good for you and understand the benefits of the healthier options available.Staying with the better-for-you theme, we discuss plans to further promote the Apricot and Raisin Cookie, launched at this year’s IFE trade show, following the success of our Nestlé branded lines, and it’s performing well in terms of both sales and positive feedback. The product appeals to both adults and children as it’s a healthier alternative to traditional sweet treats.11.30pmI start work on a presentation for the next monthly meeting of the European leadership team in Italy. At these meetings we share best practice in terms of product development and new ideas. We’re part of CSM, Europe’s largest bakery supplier, and we like to pool our ideas regularly.12.30pmTime for lunch and I head to the staff canteen, where I bump into my colleagues from other departments. We have a quick chat before I return to my office for an appointment. It’s a hectic day, but I really enjoy being on the go.1.00pmI meet with Julie, one of my key account managers, who is also mentor to the latest trainee joining the company’s graduate training scheme. We plan an induction programme, giving our new recruit a taste of all areas of the business. After two years, he should be ready to join our sales team as a fully fledged account executive.2.30pmI meet with the human resources manager to review applications we’ve received for a vacancy in my team. There are a few promising candidates and we agree to invite them for interview next week.3.45pmI put the finishing touches to another presentation for our national sales conference next week. I’m pleased to see that the figures look healthy – we must be doing something right.4.30pmIt’s time to prepare for a meeting tomorrow with one of our customers in Wales. I’ll be seeing one of my account managers beforehand to review progress.I try to touch base with each member of the team regularly for a one-to-one, to stay informed of their progress. I’m delighted to lead such a closely knit team.5.30pmI leave the office and head home. This is one of the best parts of the day, as I can really relax and gather my thoughts. As I approach the Lake District, I take in a gorgeous view of the fells – perhaps I’ll get my walking boots on and head out there this weekend…7.30pmI arrive home and my wife Jacqueline has prepared dinner. We catch up on the events of the day.My evenings are spent with my family. Tonight, my daughter, Nadia, shows me some of her homework. I don’t remember it being so difficult when I was at school, but then that was some time ago. nlast_img read more
