Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 2020 was a tough year for UK share investors as the Covid-19 crisis hit town. It looks like 2021 will be another testing time for stock pickers as the public health crisis rolls on. Even with mass vaccine rollouts, the economic recovery could splutter should the pandemic battle hit unexpected obstacles. Shareholder returns could well disappoint again following last year’s broad washout.This doesn’t mean that I think stock pickers should pull up the drawbridge, however. There are still plenty of UK shares that could thrive despite another tough year for the global economy. For example, I consider Bushveld Minerals Limited (LSE: BMN) to be a great stock for 2021 and beyond. The business is a vertically-integrated vanadium producer that I think could generate huge shareholder returns as demand for vanadium-based energy storage systems takes off.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…Powering upThe AIM company’s operations are split into two. Bushveld Vanadium pulls the element out of the South African ground and then processes it. Then Bushveld Energy manufactures energy storage components with the stuff and helps energy producers with project development.The outlook for the Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (or VRFB) market is compelling in my opinion as renewable energy like wind and solar takes off. The International Energy Agency reckons that green energy sources like these will account for 95% of the net increase in global power capacity through to the middle of the decade.News this week illustrates the huge profits potential for UK shares like Bushveld Minerals. CEP Energy announced it was building the world’s largest mega-scale battery in New South Wales. With a capacity of 1,200 megawatts and costing a whopping $2.4bn, it is the latest in a line of such colossal investments planned in Australia alone. The biggest battery today in South Australia was built in 2017 and has a capacity of a (by comparison) piddly 150 megawatts.I’d bet on this UK share!Bushveld Minerals isn’t without its risks of course. Like any mining company it carries huge operational risks. Disappointing payloads and exploration results can put a serious dent in future revenues and create large unexpected costs.It is also at the mercy of wider economic conditions, which could damage investment in green energy projects and associated infrastructure. A weak economy could also damage Bushveld’s top line as broader construction activity would also likely suffer. Vanadium is a key ingredient in steel because of its strengthening qualities.Today the UK mining share trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14.1 times. It’s a figure I consider to be hugely attractive given the pace at which renewable energy is taking off. And it’s also an attractive figure given Bushveld’s plans to ramp up production to capitalise on this growing market. The company aims to produce 8,400 tonnes of vanadium over the medium term through a blend of organic investment and brownfield acquisitions. This is a considerable lift on the 3,631 tonnes Bushveld Minerals produced in 2020. Enter Your Email Address Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

PivotDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcText description provided by the architects. In most typical residential developments the living spaces face central communal areas. This blurs the distinction between private and public spaces and results in a loss of privacy for the residents. In this design, we have sought to properly define the public and private spaces and make a clear separation between them.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThis cluster housing residential development consists of 10 units of semi-detached houses arranged around an entrance court forming the main public communal space. The court is dominated by 3 cascading swimming pools (adult, child and toddler) with 3 frangipani trees growing out of the water. Around this water feature are the entrances to the units, each with their own private courtyard with a perforated granite wall. The private enclosed courtyard and the entrance foyer act as a transition zone between the public space and the private space.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe living areas face the external perimeter where they have their own private garden. On the second level, the junior master faces the central space but is kept private with a timber screen. Adjoining it is a balcony which then becomes the public platform by which the resident can relate to the pool area and the other units.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe staircase and lift core are stepped back from the front thus giving the front elevation a lower scale to make the houses have a better scale that relates to the entrance court. Furthermore half the attic is left as an open roof terrace so as to reduce the scale of the development even more. Nevertheless, each unit still has 5 bedrooms, 1 study and 1 utility room as well as two private car park lots.Save this picture!SectionInternally, the living and dining area forms one main space with the open concept kitchen adjoining it. The staircase with its geometric aluminum screen brings in lots of light to all parts of the house. The master bedroom and bathroom faces the rear garden as well so as to maintain privacy.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Sayama / Coo PlanningSelected ProjectsCode Black / Zwei Interiors ArchitectureSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeHYLA ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on August 31, 2015Cite: “Toh Crescent / Hyla Architects” 31 Aug 2015.

(Photo courtesy of What 2 do @ TCU.)On the same night of the first debate in one of the most divisive presidential campaigns in modern history, TCU will be focused on toning down the rancor and instead promoting civil discussions. TCU is hosting a session of Bring It to the Table, a nationally recognized program about learning to listen and understand other people’s points of view rather than making assumptions or getting defensive.Filmmaker Julie Winokur will lead the presentation of Bring It to the Table. The event is an interactive exchange where she shares her 40-minute documentary film, followed by Table Talks with members of the audience. Afterward, participants engage in a series of conversations using the Table Talk method, where people can discuss issues that each presidential candidate has expressed and explore their ideas.Table Talks are conversations with an intentional approach, where the objective is to listen and learn from someone else rather than trying to convince others of your point of view.“We literally take turns asking and answering a series of questions aimed at uncovering why we believe what we believe,” said Winokur. “The goal is remove any need to feel defensive and try to understand the personal experiences that shape our opinions.”Winokur said the talks are meant to “inspire healthy discourse on issues that typically divide us.”These issues might be difficult to discuss, but Winokur says it is possible.“We’ll tackle some really compelling, tough topics, but using an approach that encourages civility, authenticity and nuanced thinking,” said Winokur. Winokur’s documentary was filmed as she traveled across the country listening to people share their beliefs. She helped them unpack the root of those beliefs to help promote understanding. Now she travels to universities nationwide bringing her story and the documentary.A 90 minute session for faculty will be held before the event, which sparked positive responses. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Kathy Cavins-Tull said, “Although we may not agree with each other, there is value in hearing different opinions and allowing students to choose what is right for them.” At the conclusion of the event, students will recieve voter registration information. SGA will also host a viewing of the first election debate on Monday.Student activities coordinator, Ali Stowe said, “We look forward to building a stronger Horned Frog community through this event.” TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summer
