Construction On Fairfield Playground Honoring Newtown Victim Begins

Twenty six playgrounds are being built to honor the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook  Elementary. A playground in Fairfield honors Jessica Rekos.

Very Positive The prospects for the pound are very positive over the next 12 months, said Michael Sneyd, a foreign-exchange strategist at BNP Paribas SA in London, speaking to Anna Edwards on Bloomberg Televisions On the Move program. U.K. growth is finally recovering. It seems like the U.K. is finally reaching the escape velocity that weve been waiting for for several years. The yield on the benchmark 10-year gilt fell three basis points, or 0.03 percentage point, to 2.92 percent. The 2.25 percent bond maturing in September 2023 rose 0.22, or 2.20 pounds per 1,000-pound face amount, to 94.27.

The playground will reflect the little girl’s favorite colors, pink and teal, and her love of horses and Orca whales. Jessica’s mother, Krista, was a graduate of Fairfield University and has close ties to the community. Fairfield firefighters and local volunteers are partnering with The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play’ Project, the New Jersey State Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association’s effort to build 26 playgrounds in coastal communities damaged by Superstorm Sandy. All the sites will also honor the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. Craig Lehmann, Jessica’s uncle, traveled from Tampa, Fla., to be on hand as his niece is honored. “There’ll be horses, actually a drawing Jessica made of a horse, orca whales — so her personality will be throughout this project,” he said. Jessica, the oldest of the three Rekos children, was big sister to Travis and Shane. Both brothers are at the playground site today. “(H)e’s going to dig the first hole and he’s going to boss us around, hopefully, and keep us working,” Bill Lavin, of the New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association, said of Travis.

Ship construction activity stabilizing, good for shipping stocks

We also saw a jump in construction activity for Supramax vessels in April, which explains why Supramax orders fell around the same time. So even though the number of ships on order alone would have shown that all is bad for Supramax vessels, Aprils jump may point to optimism among companies focused more on minor bulks. Investors should view stabilization as positive Stabilizing construction activity means managers are expecting rates to recover to adequate levels that can generate good returns for existing constructions soon. Noticeably, several dry bulk companies have been rallying on the back of higher rates recentlyCapesize rates in particular. While higher construction activity could drive supply growth higher, it isnt so worrisome, as shipping companies just went through a huge bubble burst. Psychologically, managers arent going to rapid-fire new vessels orders like they did from 2006 to 2008. With good shipyards fully booked, according to shipping company CEOs, investors should view higher construction activity as a positive for firms such as DryShips Inc.
