Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As I’ve mentioned before, I think there are small-cap UK shares that could provide a significant boost to my portfolio. I’m looking at two such shares in this article.A UK share with major growth The first is Venture Life (LSE: VLG). The company is an international consumer self-care company and has brands such as UltraDEX, Rosa calma and Dentyl.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 company both owns brands and manufacturers for third-parties, giving it some diversification of earnings.It’s also undergoing a successful turnaround, which I think could add significant shareholder value. Earnings per share went up over 150% from between 2019 and 2020. Revenue and gross profit growth was also very strong, at 49% and 61% respectively.There’s also plenty of cash, which rose from £10.7m to £42.1m over the last year.The company made excellent progress with its Dentyl brand, with launches in Boots, Alliance Healthcare, B&M and Bodycare stores. It also started selling in four new markets.But there are potential risks with adding the shares to my portfolio. As an acquisitive company, the group could overstretch itself in future, or pay for weak brands that it can’t improve. Also, as it has invested in improved manufacturing facilities, these will need to be well utilised, otherwise costs will have increased.Overall though, I think Venture Life is a UK share with good prospects looking forward.The loss-making miner digging up nickel for EVsHorizonte Minerals (LSE: HZM) is a penny share. Its shares trade, at the time of writing, around 7.5p. But its market cap is more than £100m. So what does it do, and could there be big share price growth in the future?First off, you may not have heard of this smaller company. It is a nickel company that is developing two projects in Pará State, Brazil. The Araguaia ferronickel project and the Vermelho nickel-cobalt project.According to Horizonte, the nickel market is a $20bn+ per year industry. It is used in electric vehicles (EVs), so is a play on the move to a green future.Both Horizonte mines have long lives, which should mean they will be productive well into the future. For at least the next two-to-three decades.A risk with any miner is that the commodity price – in this case nickel – could fall. That could quickly lead to big losses and may mean the company needs to ask shareholders for more money.While Horizonte talks about ESG credentials because of its products’ ties with electric vehicles, there’s always the potential the share price could be hit by big investors avoiding miners altogether due to external pressures. Institutional investors have become increasingly keen to be seen to be acting with ESG in mind. It’s always a bit of a risk investing in a loss-making, pre-revenue company. This is undoubtedly a higher-risk share, but for my well-balanced portfolio, I’d be potentially willing to add it as I expect big future share price growth. I think this could happen if earnings continue to be in strong double figures and investors get excited about the future prospects for both companies.

The character of this modest garden extension is created from the expression of a simple structural construction. Standard timber joists, at 600mm spacings, cross in both directions to allow for a free span between 2 rendered blockwork cavity walls. The timber beams sit on shallow pilasters formed where the blockwork is turned through 90 degrees to provide laterally restraint and to give a subtle relief to the bearing walls.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsThe beams above are slightly exposed to create a shallow coffer, although contemporary in appearance the filigree relief is reminiscent of Victorian orangeries and traditional conservatories. 1 large and 3 smaller proprietary roof lights form a loose constellation between the coffers and dictate the module. The roof lights are positioned so that a patterning of light moves across the wall over the course of a day as a second order to the architecture. Another pattern of circular ceiling mounted light-fittings form another order which becomes more visible at night.Save this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!SectionColour and polychromy are used as a way to mute the surface articulation of the ceiling and express the separate order of the roof lights to add richness, depth and atmosphere. The original window opening to the back room is enlarged to create a generous connection between a new kitchen and a new family room. A counter and cupboards are constructed with green through-coloured Valchromat MDF accented by a polished marble countertop. Drainage access is concealed in a small carpet of polished marble tiles embedded in a struck insitu concrete floor, left unpolished. The rug of stone suggests inhabitation and aggregate – a contemporary translation of a Palladian terrazzo.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsThe plant and utility spaces are located in an outhouse in the garden. A wall connects this room back to the main house. The rhythm of the pilasters is continued along this edge but the wall between drops to acknowledge the lower boundary condition. The pilasters extend beyond the wall to form 5 exposed columns. This extended wall frames a new garden court with the columns protruding to hold the cross joisted ceiling structure which is now fully exposed forming a new open pergola hung with wisteria to provide shelter and shade.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsWorking to a limited budget we proposed to work where possible with ‘off the shelf’ components. Where elements needed to be put together onsite like blockwork and timber joists we proposed to put more effort into the design and elaboration of these assemblies to generate a character and atmosphere for the house. All doors, rooflights and the double glazed units are proprietary. The standard rooflight sizes therefore set out the module and spacing for the timber beams, which dictates the position of the piers and finally the proportion of the new room.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsEveryday construction techniques and materials were chosen driven by a desire for efficiency – to design cost-effectively and economically. These inexpensive materials are easily sourced, and importantly, knowledgeable for the tradesmen and local builders.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsThrough detailed design resolution and ample allowance for construction tolerances we have used linings, skirting, plaster and paint to build in a design robustness allowing for a cheaper build onsite. Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsArtists like Richard Wentworth, Fischli & Weiss and photographers, Lewis Baltz and Thomas Struth are heroes of the office. They show that how through simple manipulation and re-evaluation sometimes the ordinary can be transformed into the extraordinary. Taking this approach the practice enjoys seeking novel ways at looking at what some may consider the everyday and banal and through new juxtapositions, exaggeration, and subverted associations to seek to articulate playfulness and delight.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsWith the rise of the modern movement in the C20th, functionalism and even minimalism became the norm. However this project take inspiration from the pre modern; a door can be much more than a door, and a wall much more than a means to enclose space. We reject the simplicity of the modernist extrusion of a plan and instead look at Alberti’s understanding of the wall and its possibilities to generate atmosphere.Save this picture!Courtesy of David Leech ArchitectsThe design was progressed through line drawing, perspectival and projected, and large scale 1:10 paper & card modelling to replicate daylight, material and texture. Drawings are used to test ideas and communicate proposals both in constructional arrangement, empirical, but also atmospheric and experiential.Project gallerySee allShow lessStefano Boeri on His Methodology and How Success is Sometimes a ProblemInterviewsHEYTEA Day Dreamer Project / MOC DESIGN OFFICESelected Projects Share Year: 2017 CopyAbout this officeDavid Leech ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnglandLondonUnited KingdomPublished on August 31, 2019Cite: “Conservatory Room / David Leech Architects” 31 Aug 2019.

People should ask the name of the charity and “be suspicious of someone who says they’re collecting for ‘sick kids’ or ‘the homeless at Christmas’.Can the collector produce proof of a written agreement with the charity authorising them to collect on their behalf? A photocopied ‘thank you for your donation’ letter is not the same thing.One potential warning sign is if the collector can only produce a registered company number, which simply means that the organisation is registered with Companies House.The Commission says that “genuine charities will be happy to give you this information”. It concludes by advising that if the public is in any doubt, “save your money and make a donation directly to the charity of your choice.” Pub goers warned of bogus charity collectors at Christmas Tagged with: Community fundraising read more

Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 12, 2018 SHARE Facebook Twitter Corn and Wheat Pop on June WASDE Report Suderman-on-USDA-JuneThe USDA June supply and demand report released in the middle of trading Tuesday was a boon to the corn and wheat markets. Chicago wheat futures traded twenty cents higher and the corn market saw ten cent gains. Even with the agency raising US winter wheat production, the market moved higher, finding strength from lowered Russian and European production, a surprise according to INTL FC Stone’s Arlan Suderman.“I think that had to be one of the surprise market responses to see how wheat exploded higher when you took the initial look at the USDA numbers,” he told HAT. “It really goes back to what USDA did with the Black Sea production. We’ve been watching this drought developing in parts of eastern Europe, the Baltic regions stretching into the Black Sea region and impacting wheat yields in that area. I don’t think the trade expected that big of a downward adjustment in this report.”The corn market’s very good day was attributable to lower U.S. ending stocks and a rise in corn exports.“We’re headed in the right direction but all’s not going to be rosy from this point forward. I’ve talked before about how I’m very optimistic about the longer-term corn picture, but before we can get there, much of that is based on the demand that we see building in China. They have to use up the reserves and I think USDA is understating the size of those reserves by a hundred million metric tons or so. We’re moving through those reserves at a very fast pace.”More specifically in the report, USDA lowered 2017/2018 ending stocks for corn and soybeans in the monthly World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimates. USDA reduced ending stocks for corn 105 million bushels to 1.57 billion bushels, which if reached, would be the lowest level since 2013/2014. The season-average farm price is raised ten cents at the midpoint with a range of $3.40 to $4.40 per bushel. Ending stocks for 2018/2019 are projected at 385 million bushels, down 30 million from last month. Price forecasts for 2018/2019 are unchanged this month. The 2018/2019 season-average price for soybeans is forecast at $8.75 to $11.25 per bushel. Wheat supplies are increased slightly this month on higher beginning stocks and production. Winter wheat is forecast up six million bushels to 1.19 million with modest increases in all winter wheat classes and total wheat production is now at 1.82 million. The projected season-average farm price is up $0.10 per bushel with the midpoint at $5.10, compared to the revised 2017/2018 price of $4.75.
