The FTSE 100’s dealing at one-month highs while the FTSE 250 has just hit fresh one-year highs. However, their ascents are quite tepid compared to the rise of Cineworld Group’s (LSE: CINE) share price today.Cineworld’s jumped 4% after comments from Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday on the reopening of the leisure sector. He suggested that a programme of rapid Covid-19 testing could prompt the reopening of attractions “such as nightclubs or theatres, those parts of the economy we couldn’t get open last year.”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…These comments follow US President Joe Biden’s recently-announced plans to ramp up coronavirus testing in the States. This has boosted similar hopes that Cineworld’s Regal chain of cinemas could reopen before too long. Cineworld generates 73% of revenues from its US sites.A high-risk UK shareHopes that UK leisure shares like Cineworld could fling their doors open to the public soon are high. But a programme of mass testing wouldn’t be straightforward to implement. It’s possible that this particular cinema chain — which only has enough cash to last until May under current lockdown conditions — could have to keep its doors shut for the foreseeable future.Glass-half-full investors might still be tempted to nip in and grab a possible recovery play. Cineworld’s expected to report heavy losses in 2021, though successful Covid-19 vaccine rollouts and the introduction of rapid testing could see it beat these estimates. The bulls might also want to buy the cinema chain because of its huge footprint in the world’s biggest movie market. It’s feasible that Cineworld’s estate in the US could deliver big profits in the years ahead.I’m not tempted to invest in this soaring UK share, though. It still faces considerable near-term risk in my opinion as pandemic lockdowns roll on and its balance sheet remains racked with debt. The rise of streaming giants Amazon, Disney and Netflix — and a changing approach to movie releases that undermines the likes of Cineworld — should provide considerable long-term challenges too.Better ISA buys?I’m not saying that investors should ignore all leisure stocks today, however. There are still plenty of top UK shares in this arena I’d buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA today, however.I’d happily invest in Hollywood Bowl, for example. Consumer trends can be fickle and the resurgence of ten-pin bowling in Britain could evaporate at the drop of a hat. But trading at the company between lockdowns in 2020 suggests that bowling is still a red-hot growth segment for the time being. Besides, Hollywood Bowl is investing heavily in its estate to keep pulling the punters in.I’d also happily buy shares in Wizz Air today. The low-cost flyer faces considerable profits problems due to mass plane groundings and a rocketing oil price. However, this UK airline share has a strong balance sheet to help it through this turbulence. And it has considerable emerging market exposure to help it deliver long-term earnings growth.

Enter Your Email Address BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) has had a weird ride so far in 2021. It’s not just cryptocurrencies that are driven by what’s happening on social media. No, by 27 January, BlackBerry shares had more than quadrupled from their end-of-2020 price. And the climb appears to have been based on a bullish frenzy on Reddit.The January Reddit craze quickly subsided, and the price fell back, but still retained some of its gains. Since then, BlackBerry shares have been slowly declining. But that was only until June, and the BlackBerry share price has now been launched upwards again.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…It’s doubled in the past month and stands at a shade under $16, as I write. What’s behind it this time? Will we see a climb beyond January’s peak, and are BlackBerry shares a buy right now? It’s not easy to see a good reason behind the current bullishness. At least there’s none that I can see.Software potentialBlackBerry is a very different company to the one that made those funny phones with keyboards all those years ago. It doesn’t make those any more, having transformed into a software developer. The company now does cybersecurity software and also for the automotive industry. I reckon those are areas with considerable long-term potential. But BlackBerry doesn’t appear poised for any great breakthrough or important development any time soon.Forecasts for the year to January 2022 suggest a fall in revenue of 10%, to around $824m. As for profits, analysts have BlackBerry down for a loss per share of five cents for the year. So its shares have no forward P/E multiple to go on. And with the company on a market-cap of almost $9bn, we’re looking at a price to sales ratio of nearly 11.BlackBerry shares attraction?That doesn’t scream ‘buy’ to me, so what’s the attraction? Some US commentators suggest it’s all about shorting. BlackBerry is a big target of the shorters right now, with around 10% sold short at the moment. So is all the buying an attempt to force a short squeeze for a quick profit? It might well be.I see a couple of lessons for long-term Foolish investors here. Perhaps the most obvious is don’t take any notice of social media. Ramping on Reddit is most definitely not a good reason to buy BlackBerry shares, in my book.It was bad enough in the old days when short-term chancers would pump up shares on investing forums in the hope of making a quick killing. But social media draws in those who otherwise have little interest in, or knowledge of, stock market investing.Valuation, valuationThe other lesson is that fundamental valuation is what counts. Sure, stocks can have very high valuations on traditional measures, but that is often justified. Plenty of companies have grown to outstrip their early high valuations, and then gone on to even greater things. I’m just not sure I’m seeing that with BlackBerry.So are BlackBerry shares a buy at $16? Given that the price seems to be driven by nothing rational at the moment, they’re not a buy for me right now.

Kurtley Beale late try snatches win for Wallabies over Wales

first_imgSunday Dec 2, 2012 Kurtley Beale late try snatches win for Wallabies over Wales The Wallabies sent Nathan Sharpe out on a high as Kurtley Beale scored a last minute try to crush the hopes of a win for the Welsh fans at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The 14-12 win added to Wallaby tour victories over England and Italy. Wales looked on track to pick up their first win of the Autumn Internationals – and end their six-match losing streak – as they led 12-9 after four penalty kicks from fullback Leigh Halfpenny. Kurtley Beale kicked three penalties of his own though, and scored the dramatic late try.“What better way to finish a game for a great man, our skipper who is retiring. Very relieved. Very happy. It was a true Test match. It was great to be part of it,” Beale said.“Full credit to Wales. They threw everything at us. But we always knew if we put in the effort for the full 80 minutes we could get the rewards and we were lucky to get it tonight.”After a lenthy delay to attend to Halfpenny, who was injured in the lead up to the try, lock Nathan Sharpe attempted the conversion in his 116th and final Test for his country. He came up short despite being on target, but was naturally very pleased with the win.“Momentum in games goes one way and then the other. If you stick in games you never know what’s going to happen,” said Sharpe post match.Wales captain Sam Warburton said that it was the most heartbreaking loss of his career.“It’s probably the hardest defeat I ever had to take as a player. It’s absolutely gutting. It was heartbreaking to see Kurtley Beale go for the line and you knew that was it basically. It felt like today was the day we were definitely going to do it,” he said.Halfpenny is okay and has been released from hospital after being checked out following neck pain.View the full matchADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error End of Year Tours 2012 Related Articles 445 WEEKS AGO England upset the All Blacks with famous… 445 WEEKS AGO End of Year Tours 2012 – Week Three – Highlights… 445 WEEKS AGO Scotland vs Tonga Highlights – November 2012… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House URX.01, familiarly known as Casa Bromelia, is yhe pioneer project of Urban Recycle Studio in the residential architecture sector. Designed and built between January/2010 and December/2011, Casa Bromelia tried to answer to user’s needs, respecting spaces and organization of the surrounding environment.

Save this picture!© Marcio Correia CamposIn order to do that, UR proposed a building divided into two floors, connected with a stair in balance inside a big 4×4 meters window. Program The program requested by the customer has been attended, and therefore the house is characterized, on first floor, by: wide living-room, American kitchen, stairs, sink and service area. On second floor instead, UR arranged a double room with integrated bathroom, two bedrooms, a common bathroom, an hall and a terrace. Construction In order to reduce the overall construction costs, it has been chosen to use light and industrial materials, assembled with simple techniques characterized by easy and quick execution, both for the interior and for the exterior of the building. For what regards the structure, it has been used a concrete/steel mixed system, aimed at creating a wide free span upon the bedrooms by employing a long steel beam, approximately 12 x 0.80m big.

Profiting of the specific climatic features of the region, Casa Bromelia has been spatially oriented in order to best exploit the main wind flows ( in this case the ones coming from Southeast ), and the natural illumination. Save this picture!sustentabilityThe 4x4meters window (Baywindow) on the opposite side, allows a constant ven- tilation crossing, by interacting with the Southeast facade windows. The use of a wooden-board cover has been arranged for reducing the thermal charge on the house.

Save this picture!© Marcio Correia CamposThe usage of renewable and less pollutant materials has represented the core of the project, using, for instance, a metallic roof for the protection of the house, instead of more pollutant materials. Then, being also aware of the current necessity of substituting vehicles which consume fossil fuels, and that electric cars can be a feasible answer to this prob- lem, several electric plugs have been installed within the box, thought to charge, in the future, possible electric vehicles.Project gallerySee allShow less”Building Intelligence Project” Think TankArticlesAbu Dhabi International Airport / KPFArticles Share “COPY” Bromelia House / Urban Recycle Architecture StudioSave this projectSaveBromelia House / Urban Recycle Architecture Studio Brazilcenter_img Architects: Urban Recycle Architecture Studio Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/206060/bromilia-house-urban-recycle-architecture-studio Clipboard CopyHouses•Salvador, Brazil ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/206060/bromilia-house-urban-recycle-architecture-studio Clipboard ArchDaily Houseslast_img read more

Our primary design response for the Hawthorn House was to first recalibrate the entire project site into a large and singular terrace; one grand outdoor theatre for living which peels upwards at each title boundary to form a living garden backdrop that would appear at every viewpoint from the living areas of the home. Within this garden platform, the house is defined by a pair of heavily textured concrete shrouds, each with its own proportion and personality, linked together by a walkway and courtyard garden. The arched concrete shrouds evolved as a method of structurally supporting the house with its own skin; designed to be understood as protective cloak rather than as signifiers of support. These shrouds provide the framework for how the spaces within the home relate to each other and to the external environment. From the first floor the context appears denied, however these more private bathing and sleeping spaces are pulled away from the ends of the solid skin which allows each elevated pavilion to look out through full height glazing onto their own private courtyards full of plants, sky and tree canopy. At ground floor within the living, cooking and dining spaces the concrete shells provide clear connectivity with the entire landscape and a sense of unexpected lightness, while carefully concealing the neighbouring context. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe ground floor living and lounge spaces in each pavilion are distinct from one another, yet they connect across the central north facing garden and courtyard. In contrast, the more private first floor sleeping spaces exist as their own elevated islands, the aspect of each being consciously framed around the three grand tree canopies of the site. The rough sawn formwork boards were stripped from the outer concrete walls, cleaned and re-used as the fencing material of the house, so that the entire perimeter of the site is composed of the same textural language and character of the concrete pavilions.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingOur objective was to provide a strong sense of sanctuary, a feeling of being ‘elsewhere’ and away from the challenges of a daily working life. This sense of refuge needed to be balanced, without being compromised by a profound level of openness. The ability to read the full expanse of the site from one side to the other and for the connections between the home to the all-encompassing garden terrace was to be both effortless and immersive. Throughout the project there is an overt restraint in terms of material palette and detailing, which we believe strengthens rather than smothers the experiential quality of the project. Balustrades and door handles are composed of un refined intersections of brass, timber and concrete, which are allowed to patina and age with the tactile connection to the human body.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!© Ben HoskingThe project uses passive solar-design principles throughout. Glazing is offset from the outer concrete shells to provide a passive eave to the northern façade. This allows winter sun to flood into each living space, whilst shielding the strong summer heat load. The house benefits from significant thermal mass in the concrete walls and the hydronically heated concrete floors which in winter also retain the warmth of the directly penetrating sunlight. High levels of cross ventilation help to keep the house naturally cool in the summer months. The elevated rooftop contains a solar pool heating system as well as a significant solar PV array.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingA defining element of this project is the balance of seemingly contradictory states that coexist within this home. It is at once civic and domestic, deeply enclosed while being intensely open, highly exposed while being effortlessly private, it is heavy yet also surprisingly light. In defiance of its strong formal language, the spatial relationships, material tactility and embodied experiences of the home seek to promote a nurturing sanctuary for a growing family.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingProject gallerySee allShow lessSkälby School / Max ArkitekterSelected ProjectsShede Visitor’s Center / Atelier FCJZSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920206/hawthorn-house-edition-office Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEdition OfficeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPoint LonsdaleOn InstagramHawthornAustraliaPublished on July 03, 2019Cite: “Hawthorn House / Edition Office” 03 Jul 2019.

Geeks bearing gifts

Geeks bearing gifts Lists of rich people make fascinating reading. The Sunday Times publishes the annual Sunday Times Wealth List, the Observer publishes The Young Rich, and Eastern Eye publishes Britain’s Richest Asian 200. A growing number of the new members of these lists have made their wealth via the Internet, a fact confirmed by the latest DataMonitor report.Charities would do well to cultivate relationships with these new millionaires. Indeed, charities who took a more pro-active approach to using the Internet over the past few years might already be in a strong position with these Internet entrepreneurs. Many of the successful Internet start-ups clearly demonstrate their founders’ interests in charity and the non-profit sector. Just look at the number of charities listed on the QXL site, for example.The Guardian’s list of the top 50 Internet millionaires revealed that they had an average age of 34, had been in business for less than three years, and were almost exclusively (90%) male.

‘We neutralized the fascists,’ says veteran union organizer

first_imgExcerpts taken from the Jan. 14 webinar,“Workers Can Defeat Fascism and Racism,” sponsored by Workers World Party, moderated by Ted Kelly. Ed Childs spoke from the WWP Boston branch. To view the entire panel discussion, go to youtu.be/d9_NDIKT0vw.Ted Kelly: What are the root causes of these neo-fascist insurgencies that we have seen in the 1920s in Germany, that we’ve seen in the 1970s in Boston, that we’re seeing now across the world? Why is this rise happening right now?Ed Childs, center, at Boston rally for Temporary Protected Status immigrant workers in September 2020.Ed Childs: Yeah, I’ve seen this in the 70s, I’ve seen it in other countries. In 1974, when they were going to integrate the Boston school system, these same fascist elements organized thousands of people. The summer before school opened, they headed two demonstrations of 20,000 people in Boston itself. They marched downtown, and any Black person downtown would be assaulted. And the assaults would be supervised by the police.That was an actual fascist movement, showing the connection to racism. They also had demonstrations every weekend in white neighborhoods, some up to 7,000 people, but most around 1,000, which is a lot for Boston. There were the same elements of people – a lot of police, a lot of lawyers, petty bourgeois, larger landlords and store owners. But a lot of workers also, who were not so much leaders, but were suckered in to get 20,000 people into Boston.So we’ve seen this fascist movement here before. We’ve dealt with it before. And we’ve defeated it before.Ted: That’s right. Fascism is the sledgehammer that the capitalists wield to smash the working class. So to fight fascism is to fight the person wielding the sledgehammer.Ed: I participated in both the the Irish struggle and the South African anti-apartheid struggle. In both, to keep the colonial situation alive, the [ruling class] needed a Loyalist fascist base – which obviously in South Africa was the white population. And in Ireland, it was the Loyalist Protestant population.But a remarkable thing happened at a fairly similar time – there was a world economic crisis, there was a 16 percent unemployment rate both in white South Africans, and also the Loyalists in Ireland. What happened – because both the African National Congress and the Irish Republican Army and Sinn Féin were extremely strong and moving – they started to recruit a lot in the working class. The ANC said they had never recruited so many whites as at that period of time. And the IRA people I interviewed in prison, a lot of them were ex-Loyalists.The capitalists try to buy the movement off. Our side has to be extremely strong to pull people back. In our struggles against fascism, we do it two ways. One, we go with strength – but also issues, working class issues. We go with jobs, not racism. We go with health care, not racism. We go with education and not war. We appeal to economic needs, what the working class needs at the time.Fighting the fascists in Boston, 1974Ted: Could you tell us about the successful way that you were able to mobilize workers against racism in the 1974 struggle in Boston ?Ed: At the time, there was an economic decline. The Civil Rights Movement had won the right to integrate schools in Boston, the last major city in the country to do so. The racist movement had a hold on Boston like no other city. And they mobilized huge.My job in the movement at the time was actually to infiltrate that movement. One thing that I had to notice was its appeal to the white workers. How were they brought in? Because otherwise the racists couldn’t have had a movement. They needed 20,000 people on the street, because they knew the Civil Rights Movement could also muster people.So the racists did it kind of like Trump did it now – xenophobia, extreme racism. They would say that “ they’re gonna start stealing your jobs, you don’t have a job because of this, you don’t have a job because of that, you could have better education than that.” These were all stated or implied.Now, the problem with that approach is that they only can do that in a vacuum, because if there’s opposition, they’re in trouble.So we organized the opposition. They had a 20,000 people demonstration, they were organizing in the neighborhoods – so we did too. And we ended up with 25,000 to 30,000 people, led by the Black community, showing huge unity – with the main issue being “We say NO to racism!” This implied to everybody that the approach is unity, and we’re gonna fight for all goals under unity.Who made up the other side? The same as those who made up the Capitol attack on Jan. 6. The police – I’d say when they had 20,000 people on the street, at least 1,000 were police. Large landlords, lawyers, priests and a lot of petty bourgeois. Then they suckered in a lot of workers, who had had no place to go. In their ignorance, they went to the fascist movement.Well, when we had 25,000 to 30,000 people on the street, there was a place for them to go. We went into the diehard racist areas 5:30 in the morning and leafleted. We did have security, but we knew we wanted to reach the workers in that community. And who’s out at 5:30, but the workers? And same in the subway. We did that, and it was some of our best recruiting. At 5:30 in the morning we recruited a lot of those workers who were in the racist areas to come join with us.We had the 1974  march – it was very strong, and the police actually attacked it. And we pushed the police back. And there hasn’t been one demonstration in Boston, to this day, of a large fascist movement. We stopped that in its tracks.‘You’ve got to organize’That’s how you do it. Support and build up the Black community and the Latin community and the progressive community. But the other thing we were looking at: How to undermine the fascist movement?We analyzed that they did have the leadership, and they had their elements who benefit. But they also had the workers who do not benefit from the fascist movement. So we went after them – the workers on the fence. They’re looking for who’s the strongest, and they go to whoever the strongest is. When we became the strongest, a number of them, I wouldn’t say a lot, but a number of them came to us, and became organizers with us. And that’s what the struggle does.I think that’s a big lesson for today. How do we get that done? You’ve got to organize, you got to do deep organizing. We organized tenant unions, we organized unions, we organized door-to-door, we organized on the subway, we organized workers as they went to work, we had small demonstrations. And it was dangerous. The security we had was very tight. When we were leafleting on subways, we had 10 people – seven on security, three leafleting. That’s how it’s got to be done.When we did that, we totally neutralized the fascists. They weren’t able to respond at all. The movement in Boston became so much stronger. Leadership in the Black community really strengthened, and you can see it still today. Black politicians – there weren’t any at that time in Boston – started to to get elected. It changed the whole atmosphere.Obviously, everything we did hasn’t been undone, but we need to build like that again. How do the fascists flourish? Well, first they have to defeat us. There is the famous quote that came out of Germany, that every anti-fascist has run into, the quote by a minister that says: “First they came after the communists, and I did not help them because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came after the Jews. And I wasn’t a Jew, so I didn’t help them. Then they came after the trade unionists, and I didn’t help them….” Well, that’s similar to today. To organize like this, you got to be tough, you got to be a communist.Ted: We have seen living examples of the alive fascist movement on Jan. 6 in Washington, D.C. And we’ve been talking about what working people need to do.Ed: I want to say something that recently happened in our union, Unite Here Local 26 in Boston. In July 2020, two of our Black members were brutalized by the police in Lynn, a city outside of Boston. We organized a group of 500 people, 100 union members and 400 community organizers and people in Lynn. We had a very militant march to police headquarters in town, where the police forces were mobilized. And we won! We got the charges dropped on our union members, we got a couple of police fired.But the important thing that happened was that the people in Lynn loved it. And afterwards, when we had organizing drives in some of the hotels, it turned out some of the workers lived in Lynn, and had seen what Local 26 could do – and joined in. They had seen the struggle against racism being picked up by the local, they saw the union was very strong. These militant issues help build a coalition.I think everybody talks about how we have to have a coalition. But you’re not going to have a coalition if you don’t fight about all the issues.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
