Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Would I buy Bitcoin? No. Would I buy shares in Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB)? Maybe. That might sound strange, so I’ll explain. To me, it’s similar to gold. I won’t buy gold, because it’s a straight gamble on where the gold price might go next.But a gold miner is different. Based on a range of possible gold prices, we can estimate some sort of base level for the long-term profits a miner might make. Similarly, it should be possible to come to some sort of rational valuation for the ARB share price, shouldn’t it?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…It’s not easy right now. Rather than any fundamental valuation based on profits, the Argo Blockchain share price is really just following where cryptocurrencies are going. Bitcoin has soared in 2021, but it’s fallen back some way since its high in April. And that’s what ARB shares have done too.It seems it’s all down to Elon Musk. Tesla accepts Bitcoin in payment for cars? Buy Bitcoin. Oh, Tesla won’t take it any more? Sell Bitcoin. He says Tesla might sell its Bitcoin holdings, then he says it hasn’t… you get the picture.It seems crazy to me to value something based on whatever one person happens to tweet in any one day, even someone as successful and charismatic as Musk. But that’s the way the cryptocurrency world seems to work.ARB share price down againArgo Blockchain ended Tuesday down 5.8%, at 130p. That’s still a climb of more than 2,500% over the past 12 months. But the price hit a peak of 360p at on 26 March, and has since plunged 65%. That suggests it’s hugely risky buying into a crypto mining stock, way more than a gold mining stock.To get back to my gold miner comparison, I’d value a mining stock based largely on the cost of extraction per ounce. I’d examine historical gold prices, and work out what margins the miner might make at various levels. And if I think there’s still decent profit even if gold falls significantly, I’ll seriously consider buying the shares.I’d want to see the share price trading at a discount to what I think the underlying profits might be like. But that’s not happening with the ARB share price.Speculative valuationAt the end of April, Argo held a total of 936 Bitcoin, or Bitcoin equivalent (BTC). And it was mining at a rate of around 1,970 BTC per year. The company’s current market-cap stands at a fraction under £500m, or about the equivalent of 16,600 Bitcoin.Mining at current rates would take around eight years to generate enough BTC to match the firm’s valuation. Well, presumably longer, as it costs money to run all the computers.I know Argo plans to raise its production rate, but that will cost more money. And, right now, the ARB share price still appears to value the company based solely on the speculative future value of Bitcoin. It’s not based on any proven sustainable profits the company might make.Should that happen, that’s when I’ll consider buying.

The property was on a low hill, and the client wanted the brand new residence in the familiar environment.  The east side was a steep slope with the open front, and his top priority was the “dwelling space with the living room with the extensive view where he can spend the extraordinary life.”  The client was well aware of my design style to details, and was convinced that “the dwelling space of my wish and your style resonate each other.”Save this picture!© Junji Kojima / 45g PhotographyWhen I visited the property, I climbed on the surrounding walls and checked how I could secure the view, the theme of this residence, from various aspects.  It faced Mt.

Experts to Discuss Farm Bill and 2012 drought AT FSR

first_img With the current farm bill set to expire Sept. 30, farmers already dealing with the effects of the worst drought in 50 years, want to know how soon a new bill could be passed and what it will mean for their bottom lines, Ohio State University Extension economist Matt Roberts says. But with the Republican-controlled House and Democrat-led Senate disagreeing on key farm bill provisions, including the amount of cuts to the food stamp program and the shape of the farm program, it is unclear when a new bill will be passed and what that new bill will mean for farmers, he said.  That has left farmers reeling with the uncertainty of what the potential farm bill could mean for their farm futures. “The most defining moment of the past two or three years has been the drought of 2012, so how will that affect where the farm bill debate will go?” Roberts asked.“The farm bill is so important because it sets the rules of the game of how farmers operate. So any changes to that policy affect farmers in terms of their decisions on whether to expand, contract or grow new crops. The drought this year has caused a lot of losses across the farm sector, so understanding what the safety net is going forward is crucial to help farmers make production decisions for 2013 and beyond.” SHARE By Gary Truitt – Sep 11, 2012 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Experts to Discuss Farm Bill and 2012 drought AT FSR Roberts will talk about the implications during “Drought and the Farm Bill: What 2012 Means for Farm Policy,” Sept. 18, 10-11 a.m. at the Tobin Building during the Farm Science Review near London, Ohio. The panel discussion will feature Roberts; Ian Sheldon, the Andersons Professor of International Trade in Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; Carl Zulauf, an agricultural economics professor and a farm policy expert in the college; and Katharine Ferguson, the Rural Policy Director for U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown. “The goal of the talk is to help farmers better understand what the forces are that are shaping the farm bill, what the farm bill may look like, and when we may actually see it pass,” Roberts said. “The fact is that we are still trying to pull our way out of the recession, with a lot of people receiving (food stamps), combined with the worst drought in 50 years and significant pressure from Washington to get spending under control and lower the deficit. “So how will these forces get reconciled with the farm bill in the legislative process?”center_img Facebook Twitter Farm Science Review is sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; OSU Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center.

Pink roses for Mama

first_imgSkip By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Finding a vein of gold running through the backyard would not have made me nearly as happy as discovering the thorny rosebush creeping through the wild onions that were having their way in the world.How many times had I scoured the far reaches of the backyard in search of just one lone survivor of my grandmother’s pink outhouse roses. Mugi, my grandmother, had brought Mama a cutting of the rose in the spring of 1946 to “brighten up the place.”Daddy was in the Ferry Command during World War II, and flew planes out of Gore Field in Montana. Mama followed him there and just about outran him back home when the war was over.

My granddaddy had a tenant house freshly painted and waiting when they got home. But, Mama’s mother, Mugi, said a house is not a home until it’s overrun with roses.Mama planted the outhouse rose next to a calf barn near the house, and it took root and ran. It climbed the wall of the barn, the fence that enclosed the hog pen that was attached to the barn and then made its way out into the yard. The rose even climbed the chinaberry tree.Daddy said Mama’s running rose and Baptists were taking over the county. By Blood Sugar Blaster I always cut the biggest and brightest roses for us to wear but, when Mugi was at our house, I had to find a pale pink rose for her because her mother was dead.“It’s not real white,” I would say to Mugi and she would say that was all right, that her mother was alive in her heart.Mugi would cry sometimes because she missed her mama “so bad.” I thought that was kind of odd because Mugi’s mama died when she was a little girl and she couldn’t remember her. She didn’t even know what she looked like. But she missed her a lot.Over the years, cutting roses was something I looked forward to each Mother’s Day. It gave me such a sense of belonging and of being loved. Pink roses for mama and me and a pale one for Mugi whose mama lived in her heart.When I had children of my own, we would go to the climbing outhouse roses and cut pink roses for them to wear on Mother’s Day.In Oct. 1980, Mugi died, and I had to cut the palest of the pink roses for Mama to wear. Strangely, the climbing rose had more thorns that year.In the years that followed, the climbing rose was overtaken by a tangle of brush, and the roses had a hard time growing. It was harder and harder to find roses to wear on Mother’s Day and, then the church started to hand out carnations on Mother’s Day – a pink carnation or red one if your mother was living. A white one if she had died.Cutting roses for Mother’s Day was not a thing for me to do anymore. And the old outhouse rose just withered and faded from the scene.Mama died in Jan. 1995 and that year I didn’t go to church on Mother’s Day. I couldn’t be there among the red and pink roses. And, I would not have a white one.The hands of time have a way of lessening the pain of losing a loved one, but there’s never enough time left to erase the grief of the loss of a mother.And, like Mugi, I’ll wear a pink outhouse rose on Mother’s Day because Mama lives in my heart.To quote Lewis Grizzard, “Hug your mama today.

The meetings are open to the public. In the proposed agreement, the City of Brundidge agreed to pay M&W the sum of 8 percent plus a $20/acre marking fee for services rendered.After considering the agreement between the city and M&W, the council voted in favor of the agreement.Boyd signed a proclamation declaring January 2020 as Human Trafficking Awareness Month in Brundidge.“Human trafficking is a very real problem facing the world today,” Boyd said. “Although it can take many forms, in every case it goes against the core principles of individual freedoms and civil rights that our state and nation stand for. The City of Brundidge is committed to ensuring that our community remains on the front lines in combating this deplorable crime. The first step in eliminating human trafficking is to educate others We must work to ensure that all our residents are aware of this problem and how to spot it. We ask our residents to join us in raising the visibility of this crime where its victims are all too often invisible.’ In the proposed agreement, M&W agreed to locate and flag/paint existing land lines, accompany prospective purchasers to the timber to be sold and to advise the City of Brundidge of the fair market value of the timber to be sold.M&W also agreed to mark all trees with blue paint and to prepare a contract between the city and timber buyer.In addition, M&W agreed to supervise the cutting and removal of any timber and to inspect the property upon the completion of the cutting and removal of the timber.

Anger as cost of criminal checks set to rise again

first_imgAnger as cost of criminal checks set to rise againOn 9 Dec 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Charities have reacted angrily to a further increase in the cost of vettingemployees as part of an initiative to ease pressure on the troubled CriminalRecords Bureau (CRB). Fees will rise by £4 to £28 for a standard disclosure and £33 for anenhanced disclosure. The 17 per cent rise comes into effect on 1 April 2004 –just nine months after fees were increased by 133 per cent. Clare Smith, HR director at Leonard Cheshire, who needs to use the CRB tocheck staff working with vulnerable adults, said she was appalled that feeswere being increased again, despite improvements in the service. Smith said Leonard Cheshire would have to find an extra £10,000 a year. “I don’t believe the Government has given sufficient consideration tothe impact this will have on small organisations in the voluntary sector,”she said. Stuart Etherington, chief executive of the National Council for VoluntaryOrganisations, said the rises were unacceptable and would cost charitiesmillions. Home Office minister Hazel Blears defended the price hike, insisting that itwould make the CRB self-financing by 2006. “We believe that organisations will see the disclosure fee as a priceworth paying for the additional protection,” she said.
