So should investors put their money into the companies who make money every time we trade?The companies I’ll cover here include the FTSE-listed giants who run funds and manage many billions in UK investor money every year in SIPPs and Stocks and Shares ISAs.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…IG GroupRunning a slightly different business to the two below, IG Group (LSE:IGG) is a FTSE 250 spread-betting firm. If you want to short a stock, that is, to bet on a share price to go down rather than up, IG Group handles that by selling financial instruments called Contracts for Difference (CFDs).With a tasty-looking 6.3% dividend and trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of 15, IG represents an interesting prospect.However, trading results for the first half of 2020, out on 21 January, should give you some pause.Net trading revenues were flat from 2018 to 2019 (£249m compared to £251m) and IGG is struggling to deal with much stricter rules on the marketing and sale of CFDs first brought in by European regulators and made permanent by the Financial Conduct Authority in July 2019.Chief executive June Felix focused on the fact that Japanese revenue grew 82% from £8.9m to £16.2m across the period. However, Japan makes up just 6% of total revenue. The vast majority of its customers are in the UK and EU, where revenue fell from £109.8m to £97.9m and from £38.6m to £33.4m, respectively.Future growth prospects, then, are a cause for concern.AJ BellManchester-based AJ Bell (LSE:AJB) went public on the FTSE 250 at 160p in December 2018 and reported a year later it had 230,000 clients with £52.3bn assets under administration (AUA) for its customers.AJ Bell’s share price is 150% higher than at its IPO, adding 40% in the last 12 months alone, making it an attractive growth prospect.Today’s price around 400p gives it a headline P/E ratio of 53; well out of the range of most value investors. I would want to see the share price pull back before putting any money down.Hargreaves LansdownStoried London trading platform Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE:HL) has built up a seemingly unassailable lead as the UK’s leading broker-dealer. As of September 2019 it had over £100bn AUA. Its £11.95 trading fees put off some newer investors and more recent debutants like Freetrade offer zero fees, but I would wager a good proportion of those reading this article will have their Stocks and Shares ISA with HL.The firm’s reputation was somewhat tarnished by the scandal around disgraced fund manager Neil Woodford, whose funds remained on HL’s star-rated recommended lists even as they approached collapse through 2019.However, it still offers the widest choice of stocks, funds, and ETFs to invest in and has the most sound fundamentals of the brokers on this list: revenues and profits have climbed steadily since 2014. £199m pre-tax profits on £395m revenue five years ago turned into profits of £305m on £480m revenue in 2019.A forward P/E ratio of 31 takes into account its growing earnings per share and soaring sales. City analysts expect the dividend to rise 37% in the next year, from 34p to 46p per share. For the very long-term investor, there really is only one choice in my mind. Image source: Getty Images.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply By Iain Boyd, University of MichiganU.S. Navy pilots and sailors won’t be considered crazy for reporting unidentified flying objects, under new rules meant to encourage them to keep track of what they see. Yet just a few years ago, the Pentagon reportedly shut down another official program that investigated UFO sightings. What has changed? Is the U.S. military finally coming around to the idea that alien spacecraft are visiting our planet?The answer to that question is almost certainly no. Humans’ misinterpretation of observations of natural phenomena are as old as time and include examples such as manatees being seen as mermaids and driftwood in a Scottish loch being interpreted as a monster. A more recent and relevant example is the strange luminescent structure in the sky caused by a SpaceX rocket launch. In these types of cases, incorrect interpretations occur because people have incomplete information or misunderstand what they’re seeing.Based on my prior experience as a science advisor to the Air Force, I believe that the Pentagon wants to avoid this type of confusion, so it needs to better understand flying objects that it can’t now identify. During a military mission, whether in peace or in war, if a pilot or soldier can’t identify an object, they have a serious problem: How should they react, without knowing if it is neutral, friendly or threatening? Fortunately, the military can use advanced technologies to try to identify strange things in the sky.What is this object?Taking the ‘U’ out of ‘UFO’“Situational awareness” is the military term for having complete understanding of the environment in which you are operating. A UFO represents a gap in situational awareness. At the moment, when a Navy pilot sees something strange during flight, just about the only thing he or she can do is ask other pilots and air traffic control what they saw in that place at that time. Globally, the number of UFO reportings in a year has peaked at more than 8,000. It’s not known how many the military experiences.Even the most heavily documented incidents end up unresolved, despite interviewing dozens of witnesses and reviewing many written documents, as well as lots of audio and video recordings.UFOs represent an opportunity for the military to improve its identification processes. At least some of that work could be done in the future by automated systems, and potentially in real time as an incident unfolds. Military vehicles – Humvees, battleships, airplanes and satellites alike – are covered in sensors. It’s not just passive devices like radio receivers, video cameras and infrared imagers, but active systems like radar, sonar and lidar. In addition, a military vehicle is rarely alone – vehicles travel in convoys, sail in fleets and fly in formations. Above them all are satellites watching from overhead.Military vehicles bristle with antennas, cameras and sensors of all kinds.U.S. ArmyDrawing a complete pictureSensors can provide a wealth of information on UFOs , ncluding range, speed, heading, shape, size and temperature. With so many sensors and so much data, though, it is a challenge to merge the information into something useful. However, the military is stepping up its work on autonomy and artificial intelligence. One possible use of these new technologies could be to combine them to analyze all the many signals as they come in from sensors, separating any observations that it can’t identify. In those cases, the system could even assign sensors on nearby vehicles or orbiting satellites to collect additional information in real time. Then it could assemble an even more complete picture.For the moment, though, people will need to weigh in on what all the data reveal. That’s because a key challenge for any successful use of artificial intelligence is building trust or confidence in the system. For example, in a famous experiment by Google scientists, an advanced image recognition algorithm based on artificial intelligence was fooled into wrongly identifying a photo of a panda as a gibbon simply by distorting a small number of the original pixels.So, until humans understand UFOs better, we won’t be able to teach computers about them. In my view, the Navy’s new approach to reporting UFO encounters is a good first step. This may eventually lead to a comprehensive, fully integrated approach for object identification involving the fusion of data from many sensors through the application of artificial intelligence and autonomy. Only then will there be fewer and fewer UFOs in the sky – because they won’t be unidentified anymore.Iain Boyd, Professor of Aerospace Engineering, University of MichiganThis article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Each genre will have a beginner, intermediate and advanced level offered.The dance studios at FWAFA are used during the day for classes, but are available in the afternoons and weekends, said Ferraro.“We would like to make the most use out of our space,” she said.Students have been asking for additional training outside the one to two periods of dance they receive during the day, Ferraro said. The students are already at the school and under a familiar roof allowing for an easier transition.Executive Director Clint Riley said there is a higher demand for training for young people in the community than they can get in their schools.“The primary focus of our program is creating versatile, concert-style dancers,” said Riley. This means performing on concert halls and stages and performing with small to large ballet, modern, contemporary dance companies, said Riley.“The idea for us is about versatility over one specific path,” said Riley.“We wanted to create a studio that didn’t focus on one genre of dance or have that competitive aspect to it, but that brought in dancers that wanted to train to become strong technical dancers and performers that are versatile and strong in multiple genres,” said Ferraro.This approach will hopefully allow students walking into company or college auditions feel comfortable with any genre, said Ferraro.Ferraro will be the director of the program, and Shelly Torres, dance instructor at FWAFA, will also be involved in the program. Ferraro said she is in the process of hiring additional instructors.Several instructors have expressed interest in participating with and contributing to the FWAFA program, and this will allow them to be involved, said Riley.As of right now, there is no cutoff as to how many students will be part of the new program, said Riley.Riley said they have set a soft goal and already have about 25 percent of that goal expressing interest within the few weeks of announcing.Classes will be held after school. Tuition and fees are available per class, by month, by term, or for the full year.

A cryophilic strain of the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas, C. nivalis was found to be more resistant to the stresses both of freezing and thawing and of shrinkage and rehydration than was a mesophilic strain C. reinhardii. C. nivalis was found to have a higher degree of unsaturation of phospholipid fatty acids. Following freezing and thawing of C. reinhardii there was a direct correlation between reduction in cell viability and loss of membrane selective permeability. Activation of intracellular phospholipases occurred at an early stage of freezing injury. Attempts to cold harden C. reinhardii were unsuccessful. For C. reinhardii methanol was the only effective cryoprotectant for freezing to and thawing from −196 °C and the effects of cooling rate upon cellular survival are presented.
