I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The global pandemic and economic downturn are boosting the likelihood of a recession. In fact, the International Monetary Fund predicts this year’s lockdown-induced economic slump will be the worst since the Great Depression. Global growth is expected to go into reverse with a 3% drop in 2020.So the question is, would I buy stocks in a recession? I certainly would… but with some caveats. 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…Recession 2020 or bounce and boom?Today I read about two brothers, both hedge fund owners in the US, each following a different strategy. One believes the buying opportunities are now and the financial markets will soon bounce back. The other believes a 2020 recession has already begun and much worse is to come.Their opposite opinions perfectly reflect the volatility of the markets. One day it’s all doom and gloom, the next the Footsie is rising. One thing’s for sure, it’s a heady time to be a day-trader.But I think the stock market winners to come out of this coronavirus crash and subsequent recession will be those with a long-term view of investing. To buy stocks in a recession, you need confidence in your purchases. Best shares to buy nowSo, if a recession has only just begun and share prices are likely to fall further, are there any good shares to buy now? Yes. But I’d go for solid market leaders.Others clearly agree. Shares proving popular buys just now include Tesco, pharma giant AstraZeneca, alcoholic drinks giant Diageo and British American Tobacco. These are all good companies in sectors that continue to thrive despite the headwinds. But it may be premature for beginners to buy stocks now unless you’re really confident in the company and prepared to wait for the business tide to turn. Instead, I think it’s the perfect time to be compiling a watch list of shares to buy when that tide does start to turn.One to watchA share on my watch list is Auto Trader (LSE:AUTO). It’s a profitable, well-run, FTSE 100 business, and it’s got the advantage that it becomes more valuable as its user base grows. Time will tell, but I imagine second-hand car dealing will increase once a sense of normality resumes. If so, then this could mean an increased profit margin for Auto Trader.However, it carries risk. Many of its customers are car dealerships, likely to be hard hit in the event of a prolonged recession. The volume of car loans has rocketed in recent years. If customers can’t pay these loans, the cars will be returned to the dealership.So far Auto Trader has been pulling out the stops to support its customer base. It waived fees and saw an increase of 60,000 cars listed on its site just before the government lockdown stopped all second-hand car dealing. This will cost it several million pounds in lost revenue but means people stuck at home can still browse a full catalogue of cars.Since then it’s successfully raised £200m in an equity placing, boosting liquidity. Auto Trader offers a 1.5% dividend yield covered 3 times by its earnings per share.  See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The basic idea lies in the layering of two storeys by displacing their floor plan – the elementary square of the floor plan is moved around the vertical core thus creating overhangs on which terraces are placed. The vertical line of the residential tower is cut up and transformed into horizontal layering, providing the tower with the necessary dynamics.Save this picture!© Peter KrapežThe common vertical building height with a ground floor and ten storeys also includes a gallery on the ground floor, while the 10th floor houses duplex flats. The ground floor and gallery are intended for public use, for various service providers and office activities, and for grocery stores and other shops, while the upper floors are intended as flats (the tenth floor features two-storey duplex flats).

The site is a small lot of about 50 square meters located in a residential district on the outskirts of Tokyo. While the view is blocked on three sides, the ground level is 2 meters higher than the road facing the eastern side. This gives it a unique floating feel and open views toward the schoolyard on the opposite side of the road. The house is for a couple, who are also the architects of the project, and their children.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Takumi OtaDespite severe restrictions, such as setback-line regulation and having less than 25 square meters of allowable building area, we arrived at a tower-shaped design consisting of two underground and two above-ground floors. Light, air, and the presence of the residents will travel between the floors through a circulating staircase and a small void positioned on the corner of the rooms, which culminate in a gentle “flow”.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaOn the cross-section, the entrance is on the middle layer. Upon entering this crack-like entrance, we are suddenly thrust into the “flow” and suspended in mid-air. The flow has no clear beginning because, in our design method, we decided not to give the house a robust framework. Instead, we treated the different parameters—the arrangement of functions, relationship with the surrounding environment, and discrepancies caused by the long designing process—as elements that coexist inside the flow, which we assumed is like “basso continuo,” In other words, we did not have a clear overall perspective.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!Detail SectionsSave this picture!© Takumi OtaThis process caused various disparities, creating inconsistencies between the openings and floor levels, and a relative scale difference imbalance between the rooms and residential equipment, which stay barely suspended in the flow. This stare of suspension also gives our family redundancy to embrace not only the past and present but also the future with equal neutrality.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Iruma / aoyagi designSelected ProjectsCall for Submissions: 11th International Space Design AwardCall for Submissions Sharecenter_img Architects: aoyagi design Area Area of this architecture project Konishi Structural Engineers, Yasutaka Konishi, Takuya Asamitsu, Kengo Marumoto Projects Photographs ArchDaily “COPY” Year:  CopyHouses•Japan Photographs:  Takumi Ota Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeaoyagi designOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookJapanPublished on October 28, 2020Cite: “House in Zenpukuji / aoyagi design” 27 Oct 2020.

first_imgWW photo: Greg ButterfieldThe twists and turns of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, from Cuba to Iran to Ukraine, show the ability of the right wing to undermine the policies of centrist forces within the ruling-class political establishment. This is an expression of the expansionist, militarist forces that have deep roots within U.S. capitalism.The Obama initiative to open up relations with Cuba is a classic example.U.S. big business has grown increasingly frustrated with its isolation in Latin America. The Obama administration wants to implement the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Latin American Free Trade Initiative and other trade agreements.U.S. isolation is largely due to the popularity of the Cuban Revolution throughout Latin America. Cuba has held out against the economic blockade, invasion, subversion and CIA attempts at assassination since 1959. Washington has finally had to ask for talks on diplomatic relations.But Obama, in order to prove to the right-wing, rabidly anti-Cuban forces in U.S. politics that he is not going “soft,” announced shortly after the opening to Cuba that Venezuela was a “national security threat” to the U.S. and imposed sanctions aimed at officials in the Maduro government.This outrageous claim created a firestorm in Latin America just before Obama was scheduled to attend the Summit of the Americas meeting in Panama on April 10-11. It was a crude attempt to divide Cuba and Venezuela. But it backfired and threatened to undermine further the U.S. position in Latin America and the administration’s attempt to open up relations with Cuba, which was going to attend the meeting for the first time.In fact, Obama had to withdraw this threatening, right-wing characterization of Venezuela in order to avoid a collapse of his entire attempt to improve U.S. relations with Latin America at the Panama meeting.President Raul Castro of Cuba gave a scathing historical indictment of Washington in his speech to the summit. In it he stated: “Venezuela is not, and it cannot be, a threat to the national security of a superpower like the United States. We consider it a positive development that the U.S. President has admitted it.“I should reaffirm our full, determined and loyal support to the sister Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, to the legitimate government and civilian-military alliance headed by President Nicolás Maduro, and to the Bolivarian and Chavista people of that country struggling to pursue their own path.”This is a clear case of the centrist Obama administration listening to the right wing and completely underestimating the anti-imperialist, pro-Venezuela, pro-Chavez and anti-Yankee sentiment of the Latin American masses.Iranian leader pushes back against KerryIn the case of Iran, the Obama administration, while holding nuclear negotiations, is trying to execute a diplomatic maneuver that it hopes will pull Iran toward the West and get it to abandon its support for anti-imperialist forces in the Middle East.This maneuver is probably a complete pipedream, derived from wishful thinking on the part of the Obama administration. And it severely underestimates the powerful anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. sentiments that prevail in Iran.After months of negotiations, the two sides had agreed upon a framework for future negotiations — called the Framework Agreement. But it is endangered by the desire of the Obama administration to placate the right wing.In the aftermath of the announcement of the Framework Agreement, Secretary of State John Kerry prepared a so-called “fact sheet” designed to show the right wing how tough the U.S. had been in the talks. This fact sheet was not agreed to by the Iranian side and more or less represented Washington’s wish list.Among other things, the fact sheet said that sanctions would be lifted from Iran only after it had verifiably complied with all terms of the agreement — meaning U.S.-related sanctions would last for most of the duration of the agreement.It also said that there could be inspections of any “suspicious sites” outside the known nuclear supply chain — meaning that any claim of suspicion could be investigated, presumably including military sites.These are just a few of Washington’s claims that the Iranians have denounced as “spin.”The entire strategy received a heavy rebuff when Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei flatly stated that “unless all economic sanctions are totally lifted on the first day of the implementation of any deal,” there would be no agreement. He further stated that there would be no inspections of Iran’s military sites. (New York Times, April 9)Khamenei also called U.S. public statements about the deal “flawed, incorrect and in contradiction to the facts.” And he expressed strong contempt for the U.S., describing it as “stubborn, deceitful, indecent and given to backstabbing.”Khamenei represents the legacy of the Iranian Revolution of 1979, which was a vast social upheaval. The revolution ousted the murderous butcher Shah of Iran, who had been put in office in 1953 through a CIA coup d’etat. In the coup, the U.S. seized Iranian oil and set up military bases to guard the oil interests of Wall Street.The Iranian people endured a quarter century of repression and torture under the U.S.-trained SAVAK, the Shah’s secret police. They waged two years of continuous struggle and suffered huge casualties before the Shah fled the throne in 1979.The oil was then nationalized, U.S. bases were dismantled and the religious leaders set up the Islamic Republic, independent of and in opposition to U.S. and British imperialism, the two colonizers of Iran.Washington has once again underestimated the anti-imperialist fervor of a large section of the Iranian masses, which is still alive and persists after decades of sanctions, military threat, sabotage and dirty tricks.Now, in order to show toughness, the Obama administration has just announced the testing of a new “bunker buster” bomb, presumably capable of penetrating deep sites in Iran. In addition, it has announced that it will keep Iran from “arming the Houthis” in Yemen by helping Saudi Arabia bomb and invade the country.The U.S. imperialists have invaded Iraq and Afghanistan; they led the overthrow of the Libyan government; they are trying to overthrow the Syrian government; they have supported the Saudis in invading Bahrain and Yemen; they backed Israel, which has invaded Egypt, Syria, the West Bank and Gaza; they backed Iraq when it invaded Iran.Meanwhile, the Iranian government has not sent troops to invade any country. U.S. hypocrisy knows no limits.U.S. holds up discredited regime in KievIn Ukraine, Washington and the European Union fostered a right-wing movement on the streets of Kiev and other cities from November 2013 to February 2014. The goal was to push Ukraine in an anti-Russian direction and link it to the European Economic Community.In Maidan Square in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, dozens of U.S. and European nongovernmental organizations fostered a movement that got Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych to negotiate a compromise with the EU. Yanukovych agreed to hold elections in December 2014.The minute the negotiations were over, the U.S. State Department, under the influence of neocon Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, organized fascist goon squads to invade the parliament, oust Yanukovych and set up a U.S. puppet regime. The U.S. even handpicked the new prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk.This fascist coup provoked a huge rebellion in the industrial heartland of eastern Ukraine. Separatist, anti-fascist movements developed. The people of Crimea voted to rejoin Russia. And an anti-fascist resistance war began.The U.S. government is now backing a reactionary oligarchic regime in Kiev. This regime is mostly dependent on fascist forces for the little social and military support it has. The Ukrainian army is totally unreliable. The Kiev forces have been driven out of much of eastern Ukraine.The Kiev government is totally bankrupt and has had to rely on an emergency loan from the International Monetary Fund of $18.5 billion — with no real way to pay it back except by taking money out of the hides of the Ukranian masses.The U.S. government has sharpened tensions with Russia, and is now in the position of having to shore up the Ukraine regime militarily. European imperialists are trying to guide some kind of settlement to end the fighting and restore stability. But at the same time, the Pentagon is sending in forces to train the fascist dregs in the Ukrainian army. Also, the Pentagon and NATO have moved forces into the Baltic and East European client states.The Obama administration, by allowing the right wing to take over Ukraine policy and carry out a coup, has wound up with another ongoing geostrategic, military crisis on its hands. It has possession of a bankrupt, discredited regime, dependent on right-wing and fascist forces. All its plans to penetrate Ukraine gradually, by subversion, have gone up in smoke.This is another case of totally underestimating the anti-fascist, anti-imperialist sentiment of the Ukrainian masses. It was a total miscalculation based on placating the right-wing, militarist camp in the U.S. ruling-class political establishment.The broad picture is that the ruling class as a whole has regarded the era since the collapse of the USSR and Eastern Europe in the early 1990s as one of reconquest of all that was lost to imperialism during the 20th century.The right wing in the U.S. — the John McCains, Lindsay Grahams, Henry Kissingers and their ilk — represent the most aggressive and expansionist section of the ruling class, which is striving to attain total global dominance.Centrists like Obama, who even slightly deviate from this agenda, are castigated and put under pressure and attack.It is not that the Obama administration is trying to inaugurate a new era of peace. Not at all. But Obama recognizes some of the weaknesses of U.S. imperialism in Latin America, the Middle East, North Africa, etc., and is trying to shore up its position in places where it is weak, in order to regain the initiative for U.S. big business and the Pentagon.Centrism always winds up deferring to the right wing in a crisis — even though the right wing is totally out of touch with the reality that the sentiment held by the majority of humanity is anti-imperialist.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The report is the result of two visits to Istanbul and Diyarbakir, southeastern Anatolia’s biggest city. Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Related documents cp_rapport_kurde_tr-2.pdfPDF – 58.74 KBturkey_report_2015.pdfPDF – 1.88 MB Türkçe / Read in TurkishThree months after fighting resumed between government forces and Kurdish rebels led by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and two weeks before new parliamentary elections, Turkey is again a powder keg. Dramatic events on the political and security front are being accompanied by increased attacks on media freedom.It is against this backdrop that Reporters Without Borders is releasing its report entitled “Media freedom is part of the solution to the Kurdish issue.”The report documents the increase in censorship and the hopes that were previously raised during the two-year-long peace process between the government and the PKK. As long as the negotiations continued, the media were able to cover the Kurdish issue more freely because that is what the government wanted.But this tolerance was very fragile due to the limited nature of the reforms undertaken and the lack of judicial independence, and its fragility facilitated the renewed crackdown, especially as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s authoritarian government has been increasingly intolerant of any criticism in recent years.Reporters Without Borders situates this analysis in the long history of taboos and repression linked to coverage of the Kurdish issue, which continues to leave a deep mark on the Turkish media. The report also describes the difficulties of journalists working close to the conflict in southeastern Anatolia.“Only thorough reforms and democratization in Turkey will make it permanently possible for the Turkish media to cover the Kurdish issue,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“But the opposite is happening. The increased censorship will just exacerbate the frustrations and fuel political and communal tension. As a matter of urgency, the authorities must reverse this trend and accept that, more than ever, freedom of information is part of the solution.”The report makes it clear that the media have a key role to play in reporting what is taking place and facilitating a democratic debate between the various segments of a highly polarized society. Putting names to problems, allowing voices to be heard and creating a space for democratic debate are essential conditions for peace.At the same time, only an end to the fighting will allow the state to evolve beyond its current paranoid approach and focus on security, and enable it to develop a culture of transparency and respect for the media. The report ends with recommendations for the Turkish government, judicial institutions, journalists and civil society. to go further Help by sharing this information News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law April 2, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

National Volunteer Week

first_img Facebook National Volunteer Week Local News WhatsApp Facebook By admin – April 10, 2018 Pinterest Twitter Twitter Operation Christmas ChildDuring National Volunteer Week (April 15 – 21), Odessa residents have an opportunity to join a local volunteer team making a difference in children’s lives around the world in Jesus’ Name.Each year approximately 150,000 U.S. volunteers help transform empty shoeboxes into tangible expressions of God’s love by packing them with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items. Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, partners with local churches worldwide to deliver these gifts to children suffering from poverty, natural disaster, war, terror, disease and famine. For many of these children, this is the first gift they have ever received.“National Volunteer Week is a great time to consider how you can be a part of sharing the love of Christ with children in need around the world,” said Matt McClelland, an Operation Christmas Child regional director who oversees the Odessa area. “Without our team of dedicated volunteers, we could not reach millions of children each year with the hope of the Gospel.”If you are interested in joining a local team or applying for a leadership opportunity in the Odessa area, visit tinyurl.com/ydd8yed5.
