Unlike many other UK shares, AO World (LSE: AO) has profited from the pandemic. As an online-only household appliances retailer, this growth has been driven by the increasing popularity of e-commerce, and the fact that people have been spending more time at home. Consequently, since the middle of March, its share price has risen over 300%. But with the reopening of shops around the country, and people starting to return to normality, will the growth share be able to continue this performance?A strong trading performanceFor the four months ending July, year-on-year revenue in the UK was up nearly 60% to £400m. In addition, German revenues rose 91.5% to £67m. This was particularly encouraging as the firm has often struggled within Europe.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…The other promising sign for the share was that revenues surged in both the months during lockdown and following the easing of lockdown restrictions. This proves that the revenue increase was not just a short-term boom when other shops were closed. The company said that it indicated a “structural shift in demand” that AO World should continue to profit from.Problems with the growth shareDespite evidence of significant growth over the last few months, AO World still does have a few problems. The main problem for shares over the past few years has been its failure to make a profit. For example, in the financial year ending March 2020, the group made an operating loss of £3.8m. Although this was an improvement on the £13m loss made the year before, a consistent failure to make profits is always a worrying sign. Shareholders will therefore hope the company can generate a profit this year.There is also the worry that this sales boom has been a one-off. Consequently, with people starting to return to work, and with significant competition from other retailers, revenues may start to fall near the end of the year. A potential lack of growth is therefore a significant problem for any growth share.These problems may have influenced some recent insider selling by both the CFO and one of the directors. Although insiders can sell for a number of reasons, it is nonetheless a bearish signal. Nevertheless, I’d pay more attention to the CEO’s decision to buy £1.5m worth of shares a few weeks ago, a clear vote of confidence for further growth.Would I buy AO World shares?With the evident popularity of online shopping, AO World shares look set to profit in the long term. As a result, I believe that there is upside potential, despite the shares already being valued highly. Even so, I’m personally not buying any of the shares right now. Why? For a company that has been unable to make a profit these past few years, its share price does look high. I’d therefore want to see some evidence of sustained profits before buying this growth share.

REUTERS/Michael Spooneybarger[Diocese of Mississippi, Gautier] Episcopal clergy contacted along the Mississippi coast agree that the devastation caused by Hurricane Isaac could have been much worse.From Pascagoula to Bay St. Louis, a 50-mile stretch, the Diocese of Mississippi’s six coastal churches sustained little damage from the category-1 hurricane that drenched the Gulf Coast between Aug. 28-30.“We are very happy to report that all our churches made it through Hurricane Isaac intact,” said Diocese of Mississippi Bishop Duncan Gray, III.St. Peter’s by-the-Sea in Gulfport experienced the worst problems when water seeped into the parish hall on Aug. 30 during the brunt of the rainfall.“We had about 40 volunteers with wet vacs who came and cleaned up about 2 to 3 inches of water,” said the Rev. Scott Williams, deacon at St. Peter’s who coordinated the work crew.A bobcat front end loader drops storm debris into a dump truck on Highway 90 near the gate to Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi. Clean up efforts are in full swing across the Mississippi coast today. Photo/Scott LenoirAlthough the Mississippi coast did not experience the same damage and flooding as parts of Louisiana, hundreds of residents still were displaced into shelters due to power outages, high winds, and heavy rainfall that resulted in the flooding of homes and businesses in low lying areas near the beaches and along several rivers.Rainfall amounts on the coast varied from 10 to 17 inches.Prior to the storm, the Rev. Carol Spencer, chair of the diocesan disaster and preparedness task force, advised all congregations to “hope for the best and prepare for the worst.”“Our task force stayed in communication with each other,” said Spencer, a deacon at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, Mississippi. “We were lucky to have two members of the task force present on the coast who were able to report firsthand what happened.”Spencer estimates that between the diocesan office and task force members, at least three calls were placed to each Gulf Coast congregation in advance of and during the storm.The Rev. Cathy Halford, an Episcopal deacon and pastoral care coordinator for the task force, partnered with Catholic Charities of Jackson to answer the call for supplies from people weathering the storm in the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson.Episcopal Relief & Development has been standing ready to assist as diocesan teams are able to assess the situation.“Every step along the way, Episcopal Relief and Development was kept informed as to our work and the needs we had,” said Spencer. “Also, we appreciate the many calls we got from dioceses across the nation who checked on us. We will continue to monitor the needs of churches and their people as assessments are being made and needs are being expressed.”Meanwhile, at a nationally televised press conference on Sept. 1, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano assured Mississippi coast residents that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will follow through with clean up efforts and relief.The conference at the No. 1 fire station in Bay St. Louis was attended by several Mississippi leaders, including Mayor Les Fillingame. “Our biggest story coming out of this storm event is the damage we didn’t have,” said Fillingame.— The Rev. Scott Lenoir, editor of The Mississippi Episcopalian and member of the diocesan disaster and preparedness task force, is present on the Mississippi coast to report firsthand on Isaac’s impact.

I had written a small piece on a John Wayne western, True Grit, for the parish newsletter where I was curate… sent a copy off to John Wayne and to the Episcopalian, and The Episcopalian, (Ed) wrote back… the start of a beautiful editorial friendship. We shared a love for “lager and limes” following up on a common anglophilia, and shared several amongst Philadelphia’s Chestnut Street emporia.Bless you Ed, may flights of angels indeed guide you in your rest. Much love. Pat (Smith) DesRoches says: May 28, 2013 at 8:40 pm Dear Chad, Heather and Sara,I knew your Dad and Mom when they lived in Millis; in fact I babysat for Heather and Chad while your Dad was the rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

Your parents were the best; so kind and gracious. I had been in contact with your Dad, probably a couple of years before he died. I often have thought of you and Chad – you both were such beautiful children and so well behaved. I would love to contact your Mom but don’t know whether she would remember me nor do I have any information on where she may be living now. I remember that her family had a home on Oak Bluffs. I have not lived in Millis since my marriage in 1964. My husband and I live in Webster, MA and have 4 sons and 2 granddaughters. I would love to hear from you. Please say hello to your Mom and Chad for me.

Dell, Jr. was born Feb. 12, 1923 in Atlanta, Georgia to Edward T. Dell, Sr. and Virginia Hopper Dell, the first of five children. Ed died of congestive heart failure on Feb. 25 in Peterborough, New Hampshire.At the age of 13 in Miami, with the help of his father, he started a small printing business producing grocery store flyers and business cards. Together they built the lean-to onto the garage that housed the press, type and related accessories. When he went to college at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Massachusetts, he fell in love with New England, spurring an abiding interest in U.S. colonial history that scrutinized Jefferson and celebrated Hamilton among others.After graduating with bachelor’s degrees in history and theology, he chanced to attend an Episcopal church service at the Church of the Advent, which he said opened his eyes to a form of Christianity that delighted in the human spirit. It changed his life. He earned a Master of Divinity degree in 1955 from the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was called to his first Episcopal church in Millis, eventually becoming the managing editor of the national publication The Episcopalian with the encouragement of editor-in-chief Henry McCorkle.The magazine gave him the opportunity to travel to the Philippines, Japan, and Israel, and to join his mentors and dear friends (and C.S. Lewis scholars) Chad and Eva Walsh in England (with an extraordinary visit with C.S. Lewis himself). Ed’s thorough familiarity with the writings of Lewis allowed him to identify Lewis’s work under a pseudonym. This demonstration of scholarship prompted Lewis’s publishers to entrust Ed with the publishing rights to Lewis’s work for Seabury Press.Ed’s love of technology and classical music led him to start the do-it-yourself magazine The Audio Amateur, for those who wanted to build or improve their own audio systems. He successfully grew the business to include Old Colony Sound Lab and other publications including Speaker Builder and Glass Audio. He sold the business, now AudioXpress, when he reached the “retirement age” of 88.He was widely recognized for his business acumen and commitment to excellence, most recently as a recipient of the Legend of Business Award by the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce. Ed believed in doing what you truly love, an excitement for exploring ideas, and a delight in whimsy which he instilled in his children, Chad (with Eleanor Novek of Neptune City NJ), Heather (Pat Langley of Athens IL) and Sara Dell (David Ijaz of Chicago IL) who will miss him.Ed deeply enjoyed the friendship and fellowship of Community Suppers at All Saints’ Church; donations in lieu of flowers appreciated.The memorial service will be held at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, March 9 at 11 a.m. with reception at 11:45 a.m. at Reynolds Hall at 51 Concord Street in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

By Gary Truitt – Dec 10, 2013 Projected U.S. wheat supplies for 2013/14 are raised 10 million bushels this month with higher projected imports. Record production and higher exports for Canada are expected to add to wheat supplies in the United States. Imports are raised 5 million bushels each for Hard Red Spring (HRS) and Soft Red Winter (SRW) wheat. Projected exports for all wheat are unchanged, but minor adjustments are made by class with SRW wheat exports raised 5 million bushels and HRS wheat exports lowered an offsetting amount. Projected ending stocks are raised 10 million bushels.The 2013/14 projected season-average farm price is lowered 10 cents at the midpoint with the range narrowed to $6.65 to $7.15 per bushel as near record world supplies and increased export competition reduce price prospects for U.S. wheat.Global 2013/14 wheat supplies are raised 5.3 million tons to 887.3 million. This is up 32.1 million tons from last year, but 9.0 million tons below the record supplies of 2011/12. Global 2013/14 production is raised 5.0 million tons with most of the increase for Canada based on the latest Statistics Canada estimate which put production at a record 37.5 million tons. This is up 4.3 million tons from last month’s forecast and 5.4 million tons higher than the previous record in 1990/91 as excellent summer weather and an extended growing season boosted yields to record levels.Production is also raised for Australia, up 1.0 million tons to 26.5 million, slightly above the recent forecast by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences. Production is also raised 0.4 million tons for 2012/13 reflecting recent revisions to last year’s crop by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.Partly offsetting this month’s 2013/14 increases is a small reduction for the European Union as the latest statistical reports lower output for Denmark, but raise output slightly for the Netherlands and France.Global wheat trade for 2013/14 is raised this month with larger available supplies in key exporter countries and stronger demand expected for several importing countries. Exports are raised 1.5 million tons for Canada, 1.0 million tons for the European Union, 0.5 million tons for Australia, and 0.2 million for Turkey. Imports are raised for Egypt, Bangladesh, Mexico, Azerbaijan, South Korea, Syria, and Turkey.Most of the increase in exportable supplies is from higher production in Canada and Australia; however, in the European Union higher corn imports and feeding are expected to free up wheat to support the strong ongoing pace of sales and shipments. Wheat feeding is increased for Canada, Egypt, and South Korea. Wheat food use is raised for Bangladesh and Syria. Global wheat ending stocks are projected 4.3 million tons higher mostly on increases for Canada and Australia.

Associated Press March 18, 2020 /Coronavirus (COVID-19) related news and sports stories, Sports News – Local Olympic leaders back IOC’s Tokyo stance after rare criticism Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGENEVA (AP) — Regional Olympic officials are rallying around the IOC and have backed its stance on opening the Tokyo Games as scheduled.Their support comes one day after direct criticism from athletes amid the coronavirus outbreak.Leaders of continental Olympic groups praised the IOC after a conference call to update them on virus issues. The European Olympic group says “it is important that we have one policy … and we follow that policy in unison.”It comes after an IOC member broke ranks. Four-time Olympic gold medalist Hayley Wickenheiser said it was “insensitive and irresponsible” of the IOC to insist on planning only for a July 24-Aug. 9 Olympics.

Terry TangOwner Terry Tang Designer CakesWavertree, LiverpoolTang’s has been in business for 12 years, after the former builder decided to turn his home kitchen hobby into a career. Four people work in the shop, producing up to 40 cakes a week; seven flavours are on offer, including fruit, sponge, carrot and banoffee.Terry’s cake was inspired by the floats seen at Carnival he chose a ’mythical and magical’ theme. “Carnival is a sort of ’club warfare’ and is all about groups of people coming together,” explains Tang. “So I included six freestanding figures on the cake.”And what figures they are individually modelled, limb by limb, in differing shades of chocolate, the three women are all bewinged, the three men all drumming and dressed in Brazilian greens and yellows. The judges were amazed by the accuracy of the chocolate modelling; the 12in-tall top figure is so intricately fashioned that the bones in her spine are clearly seen. The two-tier, scallop-edged cake is sugarpaste coated, with sugarpaste stars cascading down from the top. These get larger in size as they reach the bottom of the cake and are hand-painted in increasingly darker shades of pink. Also hand-painted are the manes of the white winged horses on each corner of the top tier.The judges praised Terry’s excellent skill and creativity in creating the “sculptural quality” of the cake, adding that it really captured the Carnival theme truly a cake with that “eye-catching wow factor.”Caroline OcclestonSenior Cake ArtistThe Cake Shop LiverpooL, MerseysideCaroline Occleston has worked at The Cake Shop “off and on” for 16 years. Primarily self-taught, she took a college course to brush up on her Royal icing and piping skills, and she is now one of a team of about 11 full- and part-time staff, who produce up to 50 cakes a week during the summer.”I’ve always wanted to go to the rainforests,” says Occleston, “so I decided to feature them on my cake.” Her two-tier, round cake is covered in jungle-green sugarpaste leaves and woven around it are tropically inspired flowers, modelled from a combination of sugar- and petal pastes. The top tier is supported by a tree trunk, wrapped around with vines.The cake features dancers and drummers, hand-modelled from sugarpaste, with Royal-icing piped bikinis on the dancers. The whole is a riot of colour.”I hope the judges enjoyed the vibrancy of the cake,” says Occleston.Andrea Campbell JacksonCake ArtistShuga BudzWolverhamptonAndrea Campbell Jackson joined Shuga Budz three years ago and trained on the job. She now works part-time and helps produce around 25 bespoke cakes a week for the shop. Her two-tier, sugarpaste-coated octagonal cake goes back to the roots of street carnival. It depicts a street full of rainbow-coloured houses, based on a real Brazilian shanty town, populated by scantily-clad samba dancers and children. Perched on top is the Brazilian icon, Carmen Miranda. The figures are made from flower- and modelling pastes and decorated with edible glitter and paint; the buildings are made from pastillage and flowerpaste. She piped the window frames with Royal Icing, and used a glaze on the dancers’ eyes and the fruit on Carmen Miranda’s head.”I hope the judges liked my ’back to its roots’ interpretation of carnival,” she says.
