Why I’m still adding FTSE 100 shares to my best stocks to buy now list

first_img FTSE 100 shares could offer long-term capital growth potential from their current price levels. After all, the index continues to trade below its record high. This suggests many of its members could be undervalued at the present time.Furthermore, the outlook for the world economy is widely forecast to improve in future. This may create more attractive operating conditions that makes FTSE 100 companies among the best stocks to buy now.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…Clearly, they’ve risks ahead of them. But through diversification and obtaining a margin of safety it may be possible to reduce potential threats.FTSE 100 shares trading at low pricesMany FTSE 100 shares continue to trade at prices that are significantly below their all-time highs. The lead index is currently around 10% down on its price level from a year ago. This suggests there may be opportunities to buy a range of companies while they offer wide margins of safety.Investor sentiment towards some industries is weaker than towards others. For example, consumer goods companies have higher valuations than banks, retailers or travel & leisure businesses in general. This is understandable, since less popular industries among investors may face more challenging operating environments.However, where FTSE 100 shares have the financial means to overcome future difficulties, they could offer recovery potential. In many cases, investors may have priced in the potential for weak financial performance in the coming months. Therefore, there may be scope for an expansion in valuations among today’s unloved industries. This could make large-cap shares among the best stocks to buy now.The potential for an economic recoveryFTSE 100 shares may also be among the best shares to buy now because of their long-term growth prospects. Clearly, there’s never any guarantee that the world economy will post positive GDP growth. It continues to face major risks, such as coronavirus, that could hold back its performance for some time.However, the scale of stimulus packages being rolled out and the vaccines being administered could allow many industries to face less disruption in future. This may contribute to improved operating conditions that strengthen their financial performances. The result of this effect on company valuations from across the FTSE 100 could be relatively positive over the coming years.This may catalyse a period of stronger growth for many large-cap shares that’s not currently reflected in their valuations.Reducing risks through diversificationAlthough FTSE 100 shares may have a size and scale advantage versus smaller peers, and may be more diversified than small-caps, they still carry significant risks. As such, it’s prudent to invest in a wide range of businesses instead of concentrating capital on a more limited number of companies. Doing so can reduce overall risks. And that can lead to higher returns in the long run. Enter Your Email Address Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

This residence is for five families of a couple and three children in Aisai City of western Aichi Prefecture. It was built within a corner of a large site adjacent to a plot of the main house. Since urbanization in this area is controlled, the surrounding plots were by consequence largely empty; because the environment lacked a clear context, the resultant building was designed as an extremely simple geometric shape.Save this picture!© Takeshi YamagishiThe main volume is a roughly 8.2-meter cube made of a nine-grid, three-story steel structure. What enables this rigid shape is a structure made from latticed steel H-beams, foundation and braces, as well as eight slender steel pillars supporting the vertical load in the center and four corners of the building. This steel frame rests lightly on a concrete base. After considering the relationship between the main house and existing garden, we positioned the volume to line up with the north-south absolute axis. We created an entrance and porch, a set of steps extending from the podium, parking lot in the empty space between the building and frontal road, and several new garden areas in the spaces bordering the perimeter of the site.Save this picture!© Takeshi YamagishiWithin this cubic volume, on the exterior of the completely internalized spaces, we inserted three large semi-outdoor spaces. The interior aluminum sash panels and exterior translucent polycarbonate folding doors can be opened and closed, creating dynamic indoor and outdoor environments: an intermediary region that allows for flexible space usage. On the first floor is the pre-existing garden and spaces relating to it. The second floor contains areas for looking out at the main house and the many trees and shrubs growing throughout the site; with a cross-sectional connection from the first floor. The third floor is for enjoying a view over the higher reaches of the surrounding area, as well as more distant scenery. Of course, these semi-outdoor spaces act as feelers toward objects and goings-on in the surrounding area, but we also hope that as dense air spaces they will draw in gentle light and breeze, while regulating the thermal environment.Save this picture!Perspective Section ABy the way, we utilized galvanized steel sheet and polycarbonate corrugated sheets for the building’s exterior finish. This was our way of responding to the numerous residences, storehouses and factories in the region which make use of materials such as metal plates and galvanized sheet iron. In the same way, the garden stone and concrete block wall we used for the exterior were the result of our reflections on the subject of industrial vernacular.Save this picture!© Takeshi YamagishiProject gallerySee allShow less#24 Cathay Restaurant / MINGGU DESIGNSelected ProjectsKen Shuttleworth Talks with CTBUH About Make’s Growing Office in SydneyArchitecture News Share WATANABE-KOMUTEN, Ryuzo Ozawa, Toshihiko Kumazawa “COPY” ArchDaily CopyHouses•Aisai, Japan CopyAbout this officeDaisuke Yamashita ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAisaiJapanPublished on April 12, 2018Cite: “Corrugated-Sheet House / Daisuke Yamashita Architects” 12 Apr 2018.

Journalists continue to be victims of political tension : six injured in retaking of Santa Cruz airport

first_img Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Organisation News BoliviaAmericas to go further Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about physical attacks on six journalists at Viru Viru airport in the eastern department of Santa Cruz during an operation on 18 and 19 October by police and troops to oust demonstrators in the pay of the Santa Cruz government. Public and privately-owned media were again the victims of political tension, which is growing in violence, especially in Santa Cruz.“Journalists have again been caught in the crossfire in clashes between supporters of the central government and radical opposition activists in the provinces who want independence,” the press freedom organisation said. “We appeal to both government and opposition representatives to ensure respect for state and privately-owned media by appealing to their activists for calm,” Reporters Without Borders added. “A dialogue needs to get underway at the highest level between President Evo Morales’ administration and the departmental authorities.”The major operation by 600 air force troops and 60 police officers on 18 and 19 October to retake control of the Santa Cruz airport, in which six journalists were injured, was launched without judicial approval, Reporters Without Borders has been told. It highlights the tension between La Paz and the regional government, led by a Civic Committee consisting mostly of local businessmen. The conflict erupted after the departmental government refused to hand over the taxes collected from the airlines operating in Viru Viru.The worst-injured journalist was Uriel Gutiérrez of the TV station Sitel, who was choked and poisoned by tear-gas, and then beaten and trampled by troops during a clash with demonstrators trying to enter the airport. He had to be rushed to hospital with convulsions and difficulty breathing.Analía Alvarez of the daily La Estrella del Oriente was beaten with a baton as well as being kicked and punched, and sustained contusions to the arms and legs. “They pushed me against a rock and I have bruises and scratches,” she told Reporters Without Borders. “We just wanted to get out of the way of the skirmish but the troops indicated they were going to carry out arrests and attack us.”Aydeé Rojas of the daily El Nuevo Día sustained a minor arm injury, as did Christian Peña y Lillo of the newspaper El Deber. A journalist with Activa TV and woman reporter working for Periodistas Asociados de Televisión (PAT), another TV station, were also roughed up during the operation.The Santa Cruz journalists staged a demonstration the next morning in protest against these attacks. Local leaders of the Federation of Press Workers condemned the behaviour of the troops and police as well as the overall increase in violence against journalists. In a statement, they declared a “state of emergency” and called on the government, security forces, political parties, civil society organisations and trade unions of all tendencies to respect the press as an essential tool for “consolidating democracy.”In the cental city of Sucre, which is the constitutional capital (but not the seat of government), journalists employed by public media have complained of being the target of threats and violence by people opposed to the constitutional reform process launched by the government in August 2006. Nancy Vacaflor, the correspondent of the radio educational network Erbol, said three journalists with Televisión Bolivia and Radio Red Patria Nueva were recently “threatened with lynching” and freelance photographer Jonathan Condori was physically attacked.Bolivia fell from 16th to 68th place in this year’s Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index because of the surge in violence against the press in a generally fraught political climate, especially in the four departments that want autonomy or independence – Santa Cruz, Tarija, Pando and Beni. In Santa Cruz, the Unión Juvenil Cruceñista, a radical opposition group, has claimed several attempted bombings and attacks on public media.

Supreme court partially accepts European court ruling but refuses to free journalist

But it upheld a third 2007 conviction on a charge of tax evasion and a July 2010 conviction on a charge of possessing heroin while in prison.The supreme court’s decision constitutes a small positive step but is far from a victory because it means that Fatullayev, who has been detained since 2007, will have to remain in prison until January 2013, Reporters Without Borders said. The European Court had ruled that he should be released at once.By conceding that two of his convictions were unjust, the supreme court can claim to have eased the pressure of the European Court ruling without having to free Fatullayev. The supreme court also refused to comply with the European Court’s order that Fatullayev should be compensated financially. Fatullayev’s lawyer said he would appeal again to the European Court in another attempt to get him released.——————————————————————————————–PersecutionIn latest humiliation, newspaper editor appears in court inside cage 5.11.2010Reporters Without Borders condemns the latest humiliation imposed on imprisoned newspaper editor Eynulla Fattulayev, who was in a cage when he appeared before a Baku court today for his appeal against an additional 30-month jail sentence on a trumped-up charge of heroin possession that he was given in January.Fattulayev was only told this morning about hearing, instead of being notified two weeks in advance, as required by law, so that his defence lawyer can prepare. That and the use of the cage, which prevented him from talking to his lawyer in the courtroom, are just the latest evidence of the way the judicial and political authorities continue to harass him.His lawyer, Isakhan Ashurov, described the conditions of the trial as disgraceful and unacceptable and walked out of the court. Fattullayev then asked the court to suspend the hearing, but the judge refused. The founder and editor of two leading opposition newspapers, Realny Azerbaijan and Gundelik Azerbaijan, Fattullayev has been in prison since 2007 . The authorities show no sign of being ready to release him, least of all on the eve of parliamentary elections scheduled for 7 November, despite a European Court of Human Rights ruling on 22 April declaring his imprisonment to be illegal, calling for his immediate release and ordering the government to pay him 27,822 euros in damages and legal costs .As a signatory of the European Convention on Human Rights, Azerbaijan is supposed to comply immediately with rulings issued by the European Court of Human Rights. The supreme court is due to issue a decision on 11 November on whether the country should comply with the ruling.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for compliance with the European Court’s ruling and for Fatullayev’s immediate release. It also urges the authorities to respect his dignity. to go further Help by sharing this information Receive email alertslast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders correspondent Ricardo González Alfonso freed

first_img to go further May 6, 2020 Find out more News Organisation Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today reacted with delight to the release yesterday of its correspondent Ricardo González Alfonso, along with that of several other Cuban journalists and political opposition figures. The worldwide press freedom organisation’s correspondent, aged 60, who is originally from Havana, was arrested during the “black spring” of March 2003, along with 27 of his colleagues. The married man, who is father of two children, was sentenced on 7 April to 20 years in prison for “acts against the independence and territorial integrity of the state”. At the time he was president of the Manuel Márquez Sterling society, a banned journalists’ organisation and was head of the magazine, De Cuba, the first such independent publication on the island since the founding of the Castro regime. González Alfonso arrived this morning in Spain accompanied by his family. Seven Cuban political prisoners, including five journalists also arrived in Madrid: José Luis García Paneque (of the news agency Libertad), Pablo Pacheco Ávila (CAPI news agency), Omar Moisés Ruiz Hernández (Grupo de Trabajo Decoro agency) and Julio César Gálvez Rodríguez (a freelance journalist). The Spanish section of Reporters Without Borders welcomed him on arrival at Barajas airport. They were the first group of Cuban political prisoners to be released following last week’s announcement by the spokesman for Cuba’s Catholic Church of a wave of releases granted by the Castro regime, due also to the intervention of the Spanish government in the person of its foreign minister, Miguel Angel Moratinos.These releases, including the long-awaited freedom of our correspondent Ricardo González Alfonso, marks the beginning of the opening announced by the regime. It should not however be allowed to mask the reality of the tragic state of human rights in Cuba. Reporters Without Borders welcomes these releases but points out that “exile” to Spain cannot constitute a humane and satisfactory solution. These releases should unquestionably include a recognition of the right of political opponents to live in their own country and defend their opinions openly without fear of reprisals.The organisation called on Latin American countries to intervene more actively with the Cuban government on the issue of human rights in Cuba and to stop closing their eyes to constant violations.Reporters Without Borders also calls on the United States to at least ease its embargo on Cuba that has been in force since 1962. It considers that the unfair measure against the Cuban people allows the regime to justify some human rights violations including accusing political opponents of being “mercenaries in the pay of the United States”.This wave of releases negotiated by the Cuban church and the Spanish government is the largest since Raul Castro succeeded his brother Fidel Castro four years ago. The organisation believes that with this move towards openness the regime has genuinely taken a step forward in this longed for and vital process. Nothing can justify that a people should be denied their most basic rights. This situation can no longer be tolerated and these releases should be accompanied by real change, it added.

Beauty School Comandeers Police Department’s Briefing Room, Gives Back in Honor of 9/11 Remembrance Week

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Free haircuts are one way Paul Mitchell The School of Pasadena decided to give back to the men and women of the Pasadena Police Department in honor of 9/11 and to celebrate the school’s one year anniversary in the city. A team of beauty students and the school’s dean took over the police department’s second floor assembly room on Thursday and set up a makeshift hair salon where officers and personnel were treated to complimentary beauty services on the house.It’s a happy day for us and the team because we really wanted to create magic today and make sure that today was focused on giving back to the community, especially for the men and women in uniform,” said Paul Mitchell The School Dean/Owner Alee Cao.Cao is a Master Associate for John Paul Mitchell Systems and a Celebrity Hairstylist that brought in a team of ten students into the police station to pamper deserving men and women in uniform in the form of hair cuts, face mapping and scalp and hand massages during their breaks.“To know they really appreciate public safety so much that they came here to do this for us is a big deal,” said PPD Lt. Tracey Ibarra.Cao and his team of future professionals delivered world class beauty treatments out of necessity to show appreciation, according to Cao.“We want to also make sure that our team of students understand the importance of giving back to the community,” said Cao.The team worked two shifts Thursday to accommodate as many officers as they could throughout the day.“I enjoy meeting the police officers and making them look good and feel good. It’s fast paced, but its rewarding,” said student stylist Alexandria Araujo.Paul Mitchell The School plans to keep the officers coming back the rest of the week.“We will continue to give free haircuts, styling and face mapping services to any uniformed hero that comes to our school location this week,” said Rebecky.Community engagement between law enforcement and citizens is an valuable effort for the PPD.“We get a chance through their engagement with us to show them the human side of law enforcement,” said Ibarra. “We’re just people, too.”Cao’s effort to provide services for the PPD isn’t just to knock down barriers, but to establish friendships within the community.“A lot of the time people feel intimated by the police, but the police are human beings and our friends. It’s a blessing for us to be able to do something like this,” said Cao.The School Paul Mitchell engages in community events like this one at various locations across the nation multiple times a year for the military, fire departments and other first responders.“We would love to come back next year. It’s great to be able to connect and give back as a way to show our appreciation,” said Cao.

Starter Homes Feel the Market Pressure

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Magazine, Market Studies, News Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save First-time Buyers Fixer-upper Home Prices Homebuyers HOUSING Housing Inventory Median-Value premium homes Starter Homes Trulia 2018-03-22 Radhika Ojha One of the major casualties of a national housing market defined by continuously rising prices and over-tight inventory is the starter home, according to the latest Inventory and Price Watch report by Trulia. Starter homes “have become scarcer, pricier, smaller, older, and more likely in need of some TLC than they were six years ago,” the report states. They have seen median prices climb 9.6 percent since last spring, while starter inventory hit a new low in Q1. Meanwhile, prices for trade-up and premium homes rose 7.5 percent and 5.2 percent, respectively. Overall housing inventory is actually up 3.3 percent from the first quarter in 2017. That’s the first time that’s happened since this same period in 2015. But “the rise in overall inventory masks the lopsided supply changes across the housing segment,” Trulia reported. In fact, starter home inventory plummeted 14.2 percent this quarter. “Homes are increasingly unaffordable,” Trulia reported. The share of income needed to purchase a home across starter, trade-up, and premium segments reached new highs, largely due to increases in mortgage rates since the start of 2018. The portion of income needed to buy a starter home surged up 4.2 percentage points since this time last year, up to 41.2 percent—well above the 30 percent maximum experts recommend. In addition to dwindling supply and escalating home prices, starter home buyers must also contend with homes on the market that are smaller and of a lower quality than they were six years ago. According to Trulia, quality for starter homes—which are, on average, nine years older than they were in 2012—appears to be on the wane as measured by a home’s age and the share of those that are fixer-uppers. Starter homes are also less likely to be move-in ready, with fixer-uppers comprising 11.2 percent of the starter home segment compared to 10.3 percent six years ago. Among all housing segments, fixer-uppers have actually decreased by 0.6 percentage points down to 4.8 percent, the report states. Their overall size is down too. “Starter homes shrunk by 2 percent in terms of square feet, while homes at higher price points grew by 8.6 percent more square feet,” Trulia reported.However some markets saw the share of fixer-uppers among starter homes rise considerably; Camden, New Jersey (12.8 percentage point increase), Philadelphia (8.5 percentage points) and Oklahoma City (8 percentage points) led markets where fixer-uppers became more common than they were in 2012, Trulia reported.
