Here are two examples from the UK market that have been doing just that for current holders. Here are two I’d buy today.InspecsSince covering the company in September, eyewear frames designer, manufacturer and distributor Inspecs (LSE: SPEC) has performed well. Its share price has climbed 45%. Over the last year, it’s up 59%.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…That may seem strange considering today’s full-year numbers. Revenue fell 22.5% to $47.4m in 2020. A pre-tax loss of $8.9m was also revealed.Of course, the usual suspect — Covid-19 — was to blame. Early on in the pandemic, Inspecs’s production site in China was impacted. Lockdowns globally then forced clients to shut stores and distribution depots closed. This was never going to be an easy ride for the £350m cap. On a more positive note, Inspecs revealed today that trading had significantly improved in the second half of last year. This, coupled with the emergence of effective vaccines, goes some way to explaining why the share price has remained resilient.Whether the valuation continues increasing over the rest of 2021 is hard to say. Like most businesses, Inspecs’ near-term outlook will depend on whether we really are coming to the end of the pandemic. Although trading has recovered, it would be brave (or foolish) to assume no risk remains.Even so, I remain bullish from a longer-term perspective. As part of its growth strategy, 2020 saw Inspecs acquiring other businesses, increasing its manufacturing capacity and adding more brands to its portfolio. A new facility in Vietnam is now up and running and the AIM-listed company’s order books are “higher than at the same time in 2020 on a like for like basis”.Taking all this into account, I’d still be happy to buy this growth stock at its current price.CVS GroupSince I wrote about it at the same time, it makes sense to return to look at how shares in veterinary services firm CVS Group (LSE: CVSG) have performed too.Thanks to the huge growth in pet ownership seen over the multiple UK lockdowns, it’s no surprise to see that the shares have pretty much doubled in value. In the last year, the price is up 131%!Encouragingly, the company reported in April that the trading momentum seen earlier in 2021 had continued. Sales remained “strong“, helped by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ decision to permit non-essential services.As a result, CVS now expects revenue for FY21 to be better than previous expectations. Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) will also be “comfortably ahead“.  This is exactly what investors want to hear from companies they own.So, is it time to take profit? I’m not so sure. Since spending on pets is non-discretionary (owners consider them members of the family), I actually think there’s more upside ahead. This is exactly why top UK fund managers such as Terry Smith love this part of the market. CVS Group has had a great run, reflected in its rich valuation of 31 times forecast earnings. However, I’d be far more comfortable buying a slice of this company today over a similarly priced but cyclical growth stock.  2 hot UK growth stocks I’d buy today Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Mike Phillips left out of Ospreys 23

We know what we need to do. “It’s always a very difficult place to go, but we realise that what we need to do is focus on our own preparation, be diligent and thorough about the way we go about things, and ensure that we are clinical on the night. If the players know their jobs and do their homework on the opposition then we are confident that we can put in the level of performance required.“We’re playing a team that enjoy playing at home and have a great record there, including beating Munster earlier this season. They are dangerous because they can get continuity into their game over a season, they aren’t as affected by international calls as others so they have the same group of players involved all season long, and continuity is the obvious benefit of having less players absent. “It’s going to be a bumpy ride, they’ll try to make life difficult for us, but we’ve got to be professional and rise above that. We have to concentrate on our own job and not be sidetracked by anything else.” The following players were not considered because of injury:Jonathan Spratt – ACLGareth Owen –KneeMorgan Allen – AnkleTom Prydie – ACLJamie Nutbrown – ShoulderCraig Cross – HamstringBen John – WristShane Williams – KneeCraig Mitchell – ShoulderBen Thomas – KneeRichard Kelly – Lower legJonathan Thomas – Hamstring LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Ospreys team to play Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade on Friday 15th April 2011, kick off at 7.05pm, will be as follows: 15 Lee Byrne 14 Tommy Bowe 13 Andrew Bishop 12 James Hook 11 Nikki Walker 10 Dan Biggar 9 Rhys Webb 1 Paul James 2 Huw Bennett 3 Adam Jones 4 Ryan Jones 5 Alun Wyn Jones (Capt) 6 Tom Smith 7 Marty Holah 8 Jerry Collins Replacements 16 Richard Hibbard 17 Ryan Bevington 18 Cai Griffiths 19 Ian Gough 20 Justin Tipuric 21 Tom Isaacs 22 Sonny Parker 23 Richard Fussell Cai Griffiths will make his 100th Ospreys appearance if he comes off the bench CARDIFF, UNITED KINGDOM – FEBRUARY 23: Wales scrum half Mike Phillips in action during Wales training today at the Indoor training centre at the Vale Hotel on February 23, 2009 in Cardiff, Wales.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens has broken ground on a new Education and Visitor Center scheduled to open in early 2015. The $60 million project features 6.5 acres of new gardens and about 43,000 square feet of educational facilities and visitor amenities.Designed by Architectural Resources Group, the complex of buildings is intended to harmonize with the original early 20th-century Beaux-Arts architecture on the property (once the estate of Gilded Age railroad magnate, real estate developer, and collector Henry E. Huntington). The new center’s gardens, designed by the landscape architecture firm Office of Cheryl Barton, will play a central role in the project and reflect the local Mediterranean climate as well as both the agricultural and elegant estate history of the 207-acre grounds. Much of the new construction will replace existing facilities built in 1980 that no longer accommodate the needs of Huntington visitors, scholars, or staff.“As The Huntington strengthens its programmatic offerings and works to provide the highest-quality experience for all who come here—from school children on a field trip to adults attending a lecture, from longtime members to those here for the first time—we know it’s important to have a way to properly welcome and host them,” said Steven S. Koblik, president of The Huntington. “A great deal of discussion and careful planning has gone into this project to bring it to this point, and it’s wonderfully satisfying to be breaking ground now, knowing we have an elegant solution to a long recognized shortcoming. We are incredibly excited.”The new facility will provide much improved amenities for the more than 550,000 visitors who come to The Huntington each year; the 1,500 scholars who conduct research there; and the thousands of Southern California school children and their teachers who visit on field trips to learn about art, history, literature, and botanical science. The new Education and Visitor Center will include a 400-seat lecture hall and four classrooms as well as meeting rooms and an expanded café and gift shop.The project also includes the addition of more than 40,000 square feet of underground storage space for The Huntington’s growing collections of rare historical research and other materials.Aside from purely functional concerns, the architectural team gave a great deal of thought to how people would feel in the complex—considering carefully the volume of each interior space, the height of the ceilings, the direction the light comes from, and what people would see from each vantage point.“We want people inhabiting these spaces to feel that they are in a special place, connected in important ways to the original estate,” said Stephen Farneth, founding principal of Architectural Resources Group. “To accomplish that, we maintained a residential scale, incorporating natural light, views, and access to garden spaces throughout the complex.The Education and Visitor Center is funded through private sources with fundraising actively under way.Entrance area during constructionIn early June, The Huntington’s existing entrance pavilion will close, and a new temporary complex for admissions and the gift shop will welcome visitors during the construction period. The fence surrounding the construction zone will serve as a thousand-foot-long canvas for students of Esteban E. Torres High School in East Los Angeles. The result of a fine arts, photography, creative writing, and graphic design work-study program in a partnership with The Huntington, the fence project is curated by Susan Simpson, artist and faculty member at Cal Arts, Valencia, Calif.Programming during constructionThe Huntington’s usual array of events, talks, lectures, classes, and special exhibitions will continue during construction of the Education and Visitor Center. Visitors can look forward to the following exhibitions opening this summer: “Useful Hours: Needlework and Painted Textiles from Southern California Collections” (June 1–Sept. 2, 2013, in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art, Susan and Stephen Chandler Wing); “Illuminated Palaces: Extra-Illustrated Books from the Huntington Library” (July 27–Oct. 28, 2013, in the Library, West Hall); and “Junipero Serra and the Legacies of the California Missions” (Aug. 17, 2013–Jan. 6, 2014, in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries, Erburu Wing).In the fall, The Huntington is the exclusive venue for the major international loan exhibition “Face to Face: Flanders, Florence, and Renaissance Painting” (Sept. 28, 2013–Jan. 13, 2014, in the MaryLou and George Boone Gallery); and the historic Main Exhibition Hall of the original 1919 Library building reopens Nov. 9 after renovation and the installation of a completely new $1.4 million display.Exhibitions planned for 2014 will be announced later this year.For more information, contact Thea M.

This means developing an HR function that is credible interms of its performance and measurable in terms of its achievements.” She continues: “I like the fact that HR can make a real difference tohow people feel about the organisation they work for.
