I think this AIM stock might clean up in a bear market

Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Tristel (LSE: TSTL) manufactures infection prevention and contamination control products. Hospital and veterinary staff disinfect medical instruments and surfaces with Tristel’s formulations. Critical manufacturing environments, like clean rooms, control microbial contamination with Tristel’s offerings.The active ingredient of the majority products is a proprietary formulation of chlorine dioxide. Other disinfectant agents make up just 14% of product revenues.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…Chlorine dioxide’s use in the water treatment industry is longstanding. Tristel is, however, the only company worldwide to use chlorine dioxide chemistry for the disinfection of medical instruments. Chlorine dioxide is less corrosive than other disinfectants but has a higher capacity to destroy microorganisms, including the coronavirus.Cleaning upThe global infection control market grows at around 1% on average each year. Tristel’s revenues have grown annually by 14% on average, showing that significant market share has been captured, which is consistent with the claim that chlorine dioxide is a superior disinfectant agent.There is every indication that revenue growth will continue. Tristel is waiting for more product approvals in China. In France, Tristel is one of only three entities whose products meet new regulatory requirements for the disinfection of invasive ultrasound probes and stands to gain substantial revenue increases there.New applications for the disinfectant use of chlorine dioxide are also being developed. These should work in tandem with geographical expansion to support Tristel’s revenue growth.After-tax profits and earnings per share dipped in 2016 and 2018 due to higher taxes paid on those years, although the overall trend is up. Pre-tax profits, on the other hand, have increased over the last four years, from £2.55m in 2015 to £4.75m in 2019.Dividends were covered 1.7 times by earnings for the 2019 financial year, suggesting they are sustainable. The interim dividend was just increased by 15% from 2.04p to 2.34p. If that growth translates to the final dividend as well, then the yield will be around 1.4% for the year based on a share price of 456p.Healthy balanceA healthy balance sheet is a good thing. Tristel has nearly three times as much value in current assets as it does in current liabilities. This means liquidity is excellent with short-term obligations well covered by cash or close equivalents. Tristel has 34p of borrowings for every £1 in equity measured at the end of the last full fiscal year. Low debt means a clean long-term bill of health.The company manufactures its chlorine dioxide-based products in Cambridgeshire by reacting a chlorine-containing salt with an acid. The company does state that it sources certain chemicals, parts, and equipment from overseas manufacturers.It does not have significant exposure to supply chains in China, which have seen significant disruption from the novel coronavirus. Tristel has made arrangements to handle a no-deal Brexit. A logistics centre has been opened in and a notified body transferred to the EU. The latter act should help the company CE-mark its disinfectants and sell them within the EU unhindered.Overall, Tristel is making significant gains in a large market with products that have a competitive edge. Although the markets, in general, are turning bearish at the moment, I believe Tristel’s shares should outperform. Its products are essential in healthcare settings where spending cutbacks are unlikely.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

I enjoyed his regular column (“By George!”) in the diocesan newspaper. My prayers are with his family and friends. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Donald Frye says: Submit a Job Listing [Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev.George Edward Councell, the 11th bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey, died May 21 hours after being transferred to hospice care, the diocese announced. He was 68.Councell served 10 years as bishop before retiring in 2013, five years after doctors diagnosed Parkinson’s disease.“I wanted to become a bishop to get closer to God, but with so many people here to look after, I thought, wow, I’ll really have to get closer to God to do this,” he said with a laugh in a 2013 interview with the The Times of Trenton. “But I feel that I have.”Councell died at about 6 p.m. May 21 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Hamilton.“Family and friends were with him. I had an opportunity to say prayers and anoint him, and said commendatory prayers with the family,” Bishop Chip Stokes said in a brief message to the diocese announcing Councell’s death. “Please pray for Ruth, their daughters Martha and Sarah, and hold the Councell family in your prayers.“May his soul and the souls of all the departed through the mercy of God rest in peace and rise in glory.”Councell, who received his Master of Divinity degree from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was ordained as a priest in 1975 in the Diocese of Los Angeles and went on to serve as vicar of St. George’s Church in Riverside, California; canon to the ordinary of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts, and rector of Church of the Holy Spirit in Lake Forest Illinois, according an obituary by Planet Princeton.He also was a supporter of greater inclusion of gay Episcopalians in the life of the church.“It was very dear to me to keep everyone at the table, the Lord’s table, and not needlessly build these boundaries among one another,” he told The Times of Trenton in 2013. “The church isn’t the totally safe place I want it to be for gays and lesbians, but I think we’ve made it a safer place for them, and a place where they can come, and be seen as people who want the same things as all of us: to have a healthy, happy, strong, supportive family.” Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

This was the main challenge of this project, that had to be placed in a fast growing suburban neighborhood in the first undulations of the sierras, in the outskirts of Córdoba city.  The development of sub-urbanization in the sierras, has the main problem of destroying the landscape and the native forest, while expanding the urban area towards natural landscape. Save this picture!© Emilia Sierra GuzmánWhen facing the problem of how to stand with the architecture in the site, it was a premise to work taking profit of the topography, making sure that the new construction doesn’t interfere with the surrounding landscape, maintaining the possibility of viewing the native forest through the house at the back side of the site. To do this, we decided to bury the main parts of the house below the street level, hiding it. By doing this, we achieve an intense relation with the surrounding landscape, by generating a strong contrast between the silent geometry of the brick cubes that emerge from the green roof of the buried house, and the green native forest downhill. Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!DiagramThe rooms of the house, all of them oriented north, fully opens to a private garden surrounded by typical trees of the sierras, while they hide themselves from the street and the south, gaining privacy for the house. Small interior courtyards, separates the rooms of the house from the contention wall, allowing crossed ventilation, that together with the green roof, climate the house in a natural way. From the street, we can only see two blind volumes. There are two main entrances, one for pedestrians, the other one for cars, that appears like two excavations descending down to the main level of the house.Save this picture!© Emilia Sierra GuzmánProject gallerySee allShow lessPart II: Manifesto Series: In Our Time – The Sharing MovementPanel DiscussionThis New “Fancy Fence” System Retracts Gate Directly Into GroundArchitecture News Share Projects Houses Argentina Architects: Estudio BLT Area Area of this architecture project Area:  140 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/790341/casa-gpl-estudio-blt Clipboard CopyHouses•Mendiolaza, Argentina CopyAbout this officeEstudio BLTOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMendiolazaArgentinaPublished on June 28, 2016Cite: “GPL House / Estudio BLT” 28 Jun 2016.

The House at Taubenmarkt is situated in the heart of the provincial capital of Upper Austria, where infrastructure in every form and to every time is achievable in a few minutes. In contrast to the old town urbanity and vitality, there was the wish for quietness and intimacy within the building. The entrance area of the penthouse, which is split on three floors, can be reached above an inventory spiral staircase on fifth floor. As well as the already existing patio a new one, which is situated in the middle of this floor, brings in a lot of light and a calm atmosphere into the foyer. The bathroom is oriented to this tiny green courtyard too.Save this picture!© Paul OttSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Paul OttArranged behind there are closet and bedroom in the quiet back part of the house. Caused by the house structure, part of the concept is to minimize the corridor area and to maximize the living space: everything is room, narrow parts change into wider parts. The courtyards also are an easy solution for fire prevention necessities at the borders to the neighbourhood. Windows with fire-protective glazing have been placed where views are fascinating or calm, depending on demands. The kitchen is situated behind the parapet of the staircase up to the sixth floor, with a great view through a stretched window opening onto the old town. The south wall of the living room accommodates a deep window sill complemented by a fireplace. Vis à vis the view is opened again to the bigger town-courtyard. At the street side of this floor there is a space where no windows are added and where the grey structured walls have small niches because of the former attic behind. Skylight illuminates the room from above.Save this picture!© Paul OttOnly two main materials have been selected: the lime plaster optic for the walls and the oak wood for furniture as well as for basements. This reduction inside the penthouse intensifies the coloured views of the city outside, as if pictures were hanging on the walls. The garden loggia on the rooftop, that’s got a small kitchen included, opens to the east and west. There is no neighbourhood house which affects the view onto the rooftops. All the objects of interest seem to be quite near. It is a small, calm and private but nevertheless urban place in the heart and on top of the city of Linz.Save this picture!© Paul OttProject gallerySee allShow lessDesign Guidelines for Contemporary Tropical ArchitectureArticlesMeds Workshop Generates 14 Projects on the Island of Spetses in GreeceArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Paul Ott+ 30Curated by Paula Pintos Share Austria CopyAbout this officeHertl ArchitektenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLinzOn FacebookAustriaPublished on January 31, 2020Cite: “House at Taubenmarkt / Hertl Architekten” 31 Jan 2020.

Boy Scout dies after being buried in sand at camp event

first_imgSouth Haven Police Department / Facebook (KALAMAZOO, Mich.) — Boy scouts are mourning the death of a 12-year-old member who died after being buried in the sand at a camp in Michigan.“This is a very difficult time for our Scouting family,” executive-CEO Don Shepard of the Michigan Crossroads Council, Boy Scouts of America, said in a statement.“We are sad to confirm the death of one of our youth members following an accident at a Scouting event.”Police identified the boy as Gage Wilson of Portage, Michigan.South Haven police and emergency medical personnel responded to a 911 call at 4:14 p.m. Saturday regarding a child buried in the sand near the waters’ edge at a scout camp just north of Van Buren State Park, police said in a statement.Scout leaders were performing CPR on the boy when police arrived at the scene on the shore of Lake Michigan, authorities said, adding that he was taken to a hospital.“The early resuscitation efforts were able to establish a pulse in the victim,” South Haven police said in a statement. “Efforts were then made through difficult terrain including dunes, trails, and water to transport the victim to a waiting ambulance.“The victim was flown to a Kalamazoo area hospital where he later died as a result of injuries sustained.”The boy’s family has been notified and the incident is still under investigation, police said, though, “it appears to be a tragic accident.”They did not say how it happened.“We offer our deepest condolences to the victim and his family, and we will support them in any way that we can,” according to the scout statement. “Please join us in keeping all those affected in your thoughts and prayers.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
