Can 5G change all that?BT is already heavily involved with bringing the new mobile network online around the UK. There are currently over 110 towns and cities with access to 5G, and the recent partnership with Belfast Harbour is only going to increase that figure.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…Despite this good news, the BT share price is still nowhere near its high of nearly £5 almost five years ago. Will it ever recover?A 5G opportunity?If you aren’t fully aware of how large BT Group is, the telecoms infrastructure company owns and manages all of the UK’s core fixed network. In addition to that, it is also the largest broadband provider, serving 35% of the British population using one of its several brands – namely BT, EE, Plusnet, and Openreach.Just like it with 4G, BT is taking on the challenge of getting its infrastructure updated to support 5G-based communications. But this process is quite expensive and not going as smoothly as initially anticipated. For example, the government’s decision to limit Huawei’s involvement in developing 5G is estimated to cost BT an additional £500m.Despite these setbacks, 5G coverage is expanding outside of major cities. It certainly is an expensive process, but with most mobile companies’ piggy-backing off BT’s network, these expenses may be justified.BT Group has a serious debt problemWhile there are numerous reasons for BT’s poor performing stock price, the most prominent is its debt situation. Keeping up with costs for maintaining, improving, and running its communication network pushed management to borrow money. A lot of money.To me, BT is a classic case of a business being hellbent on growth, without realising it’s destroying shareholder value rather than creating it. Today, almost 70% of the firm’s capital structure is debt. The levels are so high that it owes more money than the total value of the company!Debt can be a powerful financing tool if used correctly. It’s a perfectly acceptable way of raising capital to invest in new projects. The problem is that these projects eventually need to make money, and in the case of BT, they are simply not earning enough.Over the last five years, BT’s profits have declined by 30%. Meanwhile, debt levels have been rising, and with it, interest payments. As of March 2020, 24% of underlying profits is being used to cover debt interest. It doesn’t help matters that previously deferred income taxes are now coming due, adding even more pressure to the bottom line.The bottom line – can 5G save BT Group?5G may rejuvenate BT Group. The network is up to 100 times faster than 4G, and a boost of this magnitude sounds quite enticing. So much so that it’s likely to attract many new customers to one of BT’s brands.However, the firm has over £27bn of long-term obligations to repay with interest. If 5G fails to attract enough new customers, then I fear that BT will continue its downward trend to insolvency.For that reason, it seems more like a gamble rather than an investment to me, so I won’t be buying any shares any time soon.

Twisting courtyard is located in Paizihutong, Dashilar Area, Beijing. It used to be a Siheyuan with one single entry. The purpose of the improvement is to upgrade the necessary infrastructure needed for modern life, thus turning this traditional courtyard, which mainly serve as a residence, into an attractive public space of Beijing Inner City.Save this picture!Reception area.

Image © Weiqi JinTwist within regular layoutThe design aims at getting rid of the solemn and stereotyped impression given by Siheyuan, and creating an open and active living atmosphere. Based on the existing layout of the courtyard, the undulated floor is used to connect indoor and outdoor spaces of different height. And it is extended to the inside of the house, twisting into walls and roof, thus creating dynamic connection between inside and outside space. What’s hidden within the curved wall is necessary auxiliary spaces such as kitchen, toilet and warehouse; while reception and dinning spaces are shown outside the curved wall and connect to the courtyard as a whole. Both indoor and outdoor floors are paved with gray brick. A hawthorn tree in the courtyard is kept and being part of the twisting landscape.Save this picture!Courtyard.

The four houses can be rented for public events for purposes such as recreation, meeting and gathering. Meanwhile, they could be served as a family hostel with three bedrooms.  Integrated furniture is used to enable the flexible switch of space scenes. Furniture boxes are inserted into the existing wood frames of east and west wings. Wood platform with lifting table hidden inside could be used as tearoom or bedroom. Bed wall and partitive soft curtain are also used in the main room on the north to meet multiple use requirements.Save this picture!Kitchen.

Hazlett Bullish on AFBF Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Hazlett Bullish on AFBF Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge SHARE Hazlett-on-FB-Rural-Entrepreneurship-ChallengeAmerican Farm Bureau’s Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge helps boost rural innovation and business, a critical part of the rural economy. Four finalist teams in the competition will compete for a total of $30,000 in prize money at the 2018 AFBF Annual Convention & IDEAg Trade Show in January, in addition to already being awarded $15,000. Anne Hazlett, who leads USDA’s Rural Development efforts, says the competition gives rural entrepreneurs opportunity.“The conditions in many rural communities right now are incredibly challenging,” she said. “Rural entrepreneurship is a powerful response to begin reversing some of the sobering trends that we see. It’s so important that we have organizations like AFBF that are partnering with entrepreneurs to help them transform rural communities.”She says the Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge highlights the food and agriculture markets in rural communities, and makes them more attractive for the next generation.“Contest like the Challenge really create a forum where we can share best practices so that other emerging businesses that have big dreams, big plans, can come along and see what has worked well for others, and then be able to tap into that essential capital more quickly and to grow and succeed.”She says contests like the Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge help USDA fulfill its mission for rural development.“We’re focused really on three specific priorities with that core mission that we have of facilitating economic opportunity in rural places and that is our interest and our focus on infrastructure. Second is a focus on partnerships. And then finally, we’re really focused on innovation.”Final four teams this year are from Tennessee, West Virginia, Iowa, and Utah.Source: AFBF SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Nov 24, 2017 Hazlett Bullish on AFBF Rural Entrepreneurship Challenge Previous articleEPA Decision to Keep Point of Obligation Unchanged Protects Consumer ChoiceNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 24, 2017 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Banks’ WOTUS Amendment Part of House Farm Bill

first_img Previous articleEPA RFS Volumes Proposal Expected FridayNext articleHouse Passes Farm Bill in Narrow Vote Hoosier Ag Today The House voted to advance the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, legislation that reauthorizes farm and food assistance programs as well as the amendment to permanently repeal the 2015 Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule authored by Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03).“Hoosier farmers and agriculture producers are closer to receiving relief from this massive government power grab,” said Banks. “WOTUS gave unelected bureaucrats at the EPA the power to broadly interpret what is a navigable waterway in a way where even a puddle could be subject to federal regulation. This rule has been harmful across all industries in our country and it is time we remove the regulation once and for all.“Strengthening the work requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for work-capable adults without dependents is a conservative reform that is necessary to ensure the program’s fiscal health while encouraging self-sufficiency.”Source: Congressman Jim Banks’ Press Release Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Banks’ WOTUS Amendment Part of House Farm Bill Home Indiana Agriculture News Banks’ WOTUS Amendment Part of House Farm Bill By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 21, 2018 last_img read more
