RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Spinner Harbhajan Singh was all praise of Ambati Rayudu who helped Chennai Super Kings win the IPL 2020 opening game against Mumbai Indians. During an interview, Bhajji said that the partnership between Faf Du Plessis and Rayudu was the game-changing moment for CSK. “We have made a bright start and we need to keep moving forward like this,” he said adding that it was “Injustice done to him when the world cup team was picked”.Teammate Shane Watson echoes Bhajji’s thoughts on Rayudu and said, “It was a loss for India’s one-day team” that they didn’t pick Ambati Rayudu for the 2019 World Cup. “To be able to take down Jasprit Bumrah like he did was incredible. He’s got scoring options all around the ground. And he’s got a fair bit of point to prove as well against his old team Mumbai,” he added.

Stock market crashes are a fact of life. Although this year’s crash was triggered by the coronavirus, over the last 30 years we’ve seen a market crash every decade or so.The good news is that buying cheap shares during a slump can be a great way to lock in future profits. Today I want to look at a UK share I’m thinking about buying for when the market recovers.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…Strong foundationsThe company that’s caught my eye is Whitbread (LSE: WTB), which owns the Premier Inn budget hotel chain. I’ve been a fan of this business for a while. In my experience as a customer, the firm’s product is good quality, consistent, and reasonably priced. I’m also attracted to the strength of the brand and its £3bn property portfolio — about 60% of hotels are owned freehold.This year has obviously been difficult. Sales fell by 77% to just £250.8m during the six months to 27 August, and the group reported a £660.5m loss for the first half of the year. Whitbread’s share price has fallen by nearly 50% since the stock market crashed.However, Whitbread boss Alison Brittain moved fast to protect the business at the start of the pandemic, raising £1bn in a rights issue and securing other lines of credit. As a result, the company had £936m of cash on hand at the end of August, plus undrawn debt facilities of £1,550m. I don’t see any short-term risk to Whitbread’s financial health.Growing market shareWith much of the UK now back under partial lockdown restrictions, I suspect Premier Inn’s trading is worsening again. But in a way, I don’t think it matters. Historically, market-leading companies often increase their share of the market during a stock market crash, because weaker rivals fail.I think we’re already seeing evidence of that with Premier Inn. The company says that its sales growth outperformed the wider market by 4.3% in August and by 6% in September. Premier Inn now has a UK hotel market share of around 11%. I’m confident this business should recover strongly when pandemic conditions ease.There’s also a second attraction, in my view. Premier Inn is rolling out its business in Germany, which has a much more fragmented hotel market than the UK. Whitbread has used the lockdown period to speed up this rollout and has increased its German estate from six to 21 hotels so far this year. I reckon this could be a big growth story over the next five to 10 years.This could be one of my top stock market crash buysWhitbread’s falling share price has halved this year. As I write, the stock is changing hands for about £21, down from nearly £42 at the start of the year.This slump means that Whitbread shares are trading at around 11 times last year’s earnings. Although it could be a while until profits return to last year’s level, the current valuation looks cheap to me.I’m tempted to buy Whitbread at current levels, as I believe the group has a strong future. I’ve added the stock to my short list of stocks for further research.

Dan Biggar launches an attack for Northampton Saints (Getty Images) Since his arrival, Weise has crossed the gain-line more times than Downing Street has been redecorated; he just doesn’t seem to go backwards. Even in a three-man hit, he makes it forwards and he’s sixth in the league for defenders beaten – a stat reserved for players in the back three.Weise is fast becoming a cult figure at Tigers and is arguably the best pound-for-pound signing of the season, for any team in England. You need no further evidence than having watched Exeter v Bristol or Dragons v Scarlets in April. And having done so, the benefits of warm-weather rugby can no longer be ignored, even if the changes required to make this happen are.In previous decades supporting drastic changes, like a switch to summer rugby for the professional game, would have had you sectioned under the Rugby Health Act. But, largely in part to Covid, radical suggestions now seem more palatable.A data set of two isn’t exactly a scientific study, but a quick look at the key attacking stats from Bristol and Exeter’s two meetings does paint a picture. In January both teams collectively managed to carry the ball for 636m with 12 offloads. In April they carried for a total of 1067m with 28 offloads. Stats aside, the fixture in late April was one of the highlights of the year.Even if you think that summer rugby shouldn’t happen, it’s difficult to argue that it wouldn’t create more entertaining, less box-kick heavy rugby.The goal-line restart is a game changerSuper Rugby in the southern hemisphere is in its second season trialling the goal-line restart and the Rainbow Cup is also giving it a whirl. Whilst we’re all used to law tweaks having varying impacts on the game, the goal-line restart is the one that could potentially bring about the biggest change in playing style.Over the past five seasons we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of tries scored from lineout mauls and an increasing reliance on multi-phase ‘pick and go’ on the try-line. The lower risk associated with limiting the number of passes is obvious, but some may argue that rugby’s aesthetic has suffered as a result.The efficiency of such plays has even led to them becoming identifiable as part of a team’s DNA. With their immaculate carry and cleanout, Exeter are the unrivalled European kings of the tight pick and go, while teams like the Brumbies and Ulster have developed attacking lineout mauls that are as difficult to stop as a pyroclastic flow.The goal-line restart makes these plays inherently riskier, as any ball held up over the line, which happens regularly and is part of the ‘wearing down’ process of the defensive line, is now turned over.The big question remains. Is it fair to remove what for some teams is their key strength, in the same way that the serve and volley was removed from tennis in the late 1990s? Worth keeping an eye on, either way.Jasper Wiese is becoming cult figure at LeicesterApparently, a leopard can’t change its spots. But if you’re Jasper Wiese, a Cheetah can change its spots to stripes and with it drive his level of performance to the next level.Weise was a solid player in South Africa, but injuries and limited appearances gave few, except the talent spotters at Leicester, any inkling that he would become one of the best new signings in the Gallagher Premiership. What’s more, he’s dominating and attracting attention from No 8, which is a position in England where you can score a try in every game and still not get in the national squad. TAGS: Highlight Damian McKenzie is winning‘Winning’ used to be a very precise and positive word. We knew what it meant; it related to sports and elections. Now it has been hijacked to describe things like getting an extra chicken McNugget in your box of nine or a seagull’s guano hitting your mate, not you.Yet Damian McKenzie has clearly had enough of this dilution in meaning of the word ‘winning’ and took it to a new level in April and late March. He’s winning everything, mostly in the last minutes and as a direct result of his actions.After much research (about seven minutes), it appears that his match-winning actions in the last ten minutes of games are unique. They included an 80th-minute try and conversion win over the Blues, an 86th-minute golden-point win against the Highlanders, a 78th-minute match-winning penalty against the Crusaders and an 84th-minute penalty over the Hurricanes. Why Dan Biggar is peaking at NorthamptonIt took Dan Biggar to move out of Wales for him to finally get the recognition that his skill-set deserves. It’s a strange situation and one which, judging by the reaction on Twitter, many English Premiership fans were seemingly unaware of.Under Chris Boyd at Northampton, the Wales fly-half is in the form of his career, playing true triple-threat rugby, something many questioned whether he possessed.It’s not that Biggar hasn’t had the skills, it’s that some of his coaches haven’t allowed them to be displayed. He has played the bulk of his career in a kick-heavy period in rugby and one where retention of possession has always been treasured over what you do with that possession, especially at Test level.But at Saints, that isn’t the case. With Boyd’s Premiership/Super Rugby fusion, Biggar has been allowed to take off the electric-shock dog collar and attack the gain-line – his passing has been nothing short of sublime.It has taken a shallower pool of British & Irish Lions level tens in 2021 to highlight just how well Biggar is playing but, in reality, his performances should be highlighted regardless of the tour to South Africa.Biggar is playing the best rugby of his career and, at 31 years of age, he’s still very much in his prime.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS From Dan Biggar to Damian McKenzie, Paul Williams delivers his latest rugby round-up It would, of course, be stupid to suggest that he is winning the matches on his own. The Chiefs’ turnaround this season from last has been incredible. Although it must be said that when their ‘worst run in Kiwi Super rugby history’ was in full flow, it was in a league with the most concentrated level of quality that the global club game has ever seen – every week you’re playing the Kiwis.In that same sense, their run of wins is even more spectacular.Summer rugby is no longer a fantasyMuch like the pastry-based snacks served at many sports grounds, rugby is best served warm. As we saw in April, the quality of rugby is vastly higher when the temperature is above ten degrees and players aren’t worrying about snapping their fingers when taking a high ball. read more

Internationally, Holocaust Memorial Day is held on the anniversary of the 1945 liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Red Army. In the United Kingdom, the day not only commemorates the holocaust of the Jewish people at the time of World War II, but subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. It is a day on which the victims are remembered, as well as an opportunity for the living to learn lessons for the future.Read the entire article here.

Prime example is the apartheid/ethnic cleansing in Palestine where Palestinians are targeted,imprisoned in Israeli prisons with no legal/human rights. This has been generated and perpetuated for generations victimizing children, elderly in their own homes and villages; and any resister is immediately beaten,shot… Ironically, many of the soldiers, settlers claim relatives from the Holocaust, and yet the world sees a similar brutal replay of a holocaust on Palestinians in land where they have lived for thousands of years.

“COPY” AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat / Mies van der RoheSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Villa Tugendhat / Mies van der Rohe Houses ArchDaily Photographs “COPY” Projects AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat / Mies van der Rohe CopyThe Villa Tugendhat was commissioned by the wealthy newlyweds Grete & Fritz Tugendhat, a Jewish couple with family money from textile manufacturing companies in Brno. The couple met Mies van der Rohe in Berlin in 1927, and was already impressed by his design for the Zehlendorf house of Edward Fuchs. As fans of spacious homes with simple forms, Mies’ free plan method was perfect for the Tugendhats’ taste; however, he was not their only interest in an architect for their own home. They originally confronted Brno’s foremost modern architect at the time, Arnost Wiesner, but after visiting various projects by each architect, the Tugendhats ultimately went with Mies.+ 28Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauMies visited the site in September of 1928, and had already produced plans by December of that same year. He shared his design with the Tugendhat family that new year’s eve, and with a few minor changes new plans were drafted and set into motion. Mies deployed his new functionalist concept of iron framework, doing away with load-bearing interior walls and allowing for more open and light spaces. The villa was composed of three levels (including the basement), with different floor plans and forms, each relating differently to the sloping site. Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauThe Southeast and garden facades were completely glazing from floor to ceiling. The villa Tugendhat was a rather large house, complete with two children’s bedrooms and nanny’s quarters that shared a bathroom at the front of the house, while the master bed and bath were at the rear and connected to the terrace. A housekeeper’s flat and staff quarters were also included in the design. The villa was exceptionally expensive for its time considering the lavish materials, abnormal construction methods, and extraordinary new technologies of heating and cooling. The house was very advanced for a private residence, and while the overall cost was never known, estimates fall somewhere near five million Czech crowns. In 1930, that amount could have built at least 30 small family homes. Brno was already a hub of modern Architecture for Czechoslovakia in the 1920s, and the Villa Tugendhat was only met with moderate praise at best among the avant garde in its time. Many of the left wing elite in the art world viewed the new home as snobbish and overdone because its lush interior design and furnishings.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauMies designed all the furniture in the house and chose precisely the placement of each piece and fixture. Although there was no art on the walls or decoration in or on the house, it never came across as bare or plain because of the rich materiality of onyx and rare tropical woods used throughout the home. The villa was built by building contractors in Brno, but the iron framework was constructed by contractors from Berlin.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauSteel frame construction was unusual for homes at that time, but brought with it many advantages that Mies was very occupied with and had already used in his famed Barcelona Pavilion – thinner walls, a free plan that could differ from floor to floor, large walls of glazing to open up rooms and connect them to the garden, etc. Over all the minimal and stable design became a hallmark in Mies’ residential accomplishments. Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauThe Tugendhat family left Czechoslovakia for Venezuela in 1938 shortly before The Munich Agreement and never returned. The Nazi Gestapo set up flats and offices in the abandoned house during the World War II, when most of the windows were blown out during air raids and the original furniture was eventually all stolen. The villa was used in 1992 for the formal signing that separated the country into the present day Czech Republic and Slovakia, and since 1994 has been open to the public as a museum. Heirs of Fritz and Grete Tugendhat filed for the reinstitution of the villa into their ownership in 2007 on the basis of laws in place regarding works of art confiscated during the Holocaust. The villa Tugendhat is currently under a multi-million dollar reconstruction/restoration that is scheduled to be finished at the beginning of 2012.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauHouses•Brno, Czech Republic Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauWritten by Jules Gianakos Share Architects: Mies van der Rohe Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs: Alexandra TimpauProject gallerySee allShow lessInternational Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR): ‘Making CIty’ LecturesArticlesPierscape at Navy Pier CompetitionArticles Share Year: Czech Republic 1930 CopyAbout this officeMies van der RoheOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrnoLudwig Mies van der RoheHousesCzech RepublicPublished on September 09, 2011Cite: Jules Gianakos. “AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat / Mies van der Rohe” 09 Sep 2011.

Another week of unusually dry weather further raised concerns regarding crop development, according to Greg Matli, State Statistician, USDA NASS, Indiana Field Office. Warm temperatures and below average precipitation brought soil moisture levels to their lowest point so far this season.The average temperature for the week was 73.7 degrees Fahrenheit, 1.0 degree above normal for the State. The amount of rainfall varied from none to 1.35 inches over the week. The statewide average precipitation was 0.26 inches. There were 6.6 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending August 11.Corn and soybean development was impacted by the dry weather last week, and crop conditions declined slightly. Signs of moisture stress were visible across the State, especially in fields with coarse soils. Irrigation was running where available. Producers took advantage of the dry weather to bale hay, though regrowth in hay fields and pastures had slowed. Other activities for the week included herbicide and fungicide applications, mowing roadsides, harvesting mint, and visiting the State Fair.

According to Bankrate.com’s weekly national survey, 30-year fixed mortgages rates remain at the lowest level in seven months.According to Bankrate.com, Fannie Mae plans to relax banks lending standards in late July, which means more people will qualify for mortgages. Qualified borrowers will then be able to claim half of their pretax income to their monthly debt payments, including their household payments. As it stands now, in most cases Fannie limits total debt payments to 45 percent of borrowers’ income.Bankrate.com reported the benchmark 30-year fixed rate mortgage fell this week to 4.02 percent from 4.04 percent. This was 4.15 percent three weeks ago and 3.69 percent a year ago. Mortgages in the last week had an average total of 0.24 discount and origination points.Over the past 52 weeks, Bankrate reported 30-year fixed has average 3.97 percent and this weeks rate is 0.05 percent higher than the 52-week average. 15-year fixed rate rose to 25 percent from 3.24 percent. The 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 42 percent from 3.4 percent and 30-year fixed-rate jumbo mortgage rose to 4 percent from 3.99 percent.Freddie Mac reported in their weekly survey that 30-year mortgage rate rose 2 basis points over the week to 3.91 percent. Freddie’s report, however, was conducted before investors drove Treasury yields sharply lower in a reaction to the weak CPI release. Freddie Mac said if that drop in yield sticks, mortgage rates are likely to follow in next week’s survey.According to Freddie Mac, 15-year fixed-rate mortgages averaged 3.18 percent with an average 0.5 point, up from last week when it averaged 3.16 percent. 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage averaged 3.15 percent this week with an average 0.5 point, up from last week when it averaged 3.11 percent.
