See the results of a $4.5M renovation project at Plano’s Carpenter Park Athletic Complex

A $4.5 million renovation project installing four new artificial turf playing fields at the Carpenter Park Athletic Complex in Plano is now complete. The fields can host games and practices for sports including football, soccer, lacrosse and rugby, among other activities.

The project was funded through a $15.5 million bond referendum approved by voters in 2017.

Strong interest and wear and tear on the fields led to the renovation project at Carpenter Park, according to a video report produced by the city.

“Over the years, it’s gone from a two-season to basically almost a year-round season…And you just can’t play on a natural turf that much without just wearing it to the nub and worse,” Kevin Murray, assistant parks superintendent, said in the video.

The performance of the NHS test-and-trace system has sparked warnings from care managers that continued delays will increase the risk of infection among their vulnerable residents.

At the end of the first month in which tests were routinely provided to care home staff and residents, 87% of those carried out at satellite testing centres, predominantly used by care homes, were returned after more than two days. Over half took more than three days to come back.

Kingfisher, owner of B&Q, results H1, H2 outlook

Kingfisher (KGF.L), owner of DIY giant B&Q, reported a surge in pre-tax profit and online sales as Brits rush to renovate their homes amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The group said in its first half results statement that while sales were down 1.1%, reflecting an adverse impact of COVID-19 in the first quarter, this was partially offset by strong recovery in Q2.

Like-for-like sales also fell 1.6% in the first quarter but growth in B&Q across Poland and Romania and a 19.5% surge in sales in the second quarter offset some of the pain.

E-commerce sales also rocketed 164% and now accounts for 19% of total group sales in the first half of 2020, as people turned to online shopping during the coronavirus lockdown.

Retail profit also rose 17.7%, largely driven by lower overall costs and B&Q performance while adjusted pre-tax profit rose 23.1%.

Fitbit’s Versa 2 small improvements add up to big results

The Versa 2 is mostly a sidegrade from the Versa, but it all adds up to the best all-around fitness wearable for $180.

Fitbit’s Versa 2 isn’t a huge upgrade from the original — in many ways it’s just a modest “sidegrade” — but it still brings nothing but improvements. A year ago I called the original Versa “the best fitness tracker and wearable you can buy right now.” A lot has changed since then, including Apple’s dramatically improved Watch Series 4 and Series 5. But does The Fitbit Versa 2 still have what it takes?

I’ve spent the last two weeks with the Versa 2 and being a hardcore Fitbit fan and gym-goer I have some thoughts about it. Find out why despite its flaws as a true smartwatch, it’s still one of the best wearables for most people.

When the Fitbit Versa 2 launched, it started at $200.
