See all posts by Kevin Godbold Kevin Godbold | Tuesday, 31st December, 2019 Making a losing investment can be a crushing experience. And I bet we’ve all had them.Sometimes, there’s no hope of recovery whatsoever, and all we can do is sell out – probably after it’s way too late to save anything but pocket change!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…Warren Buffett is different. It’s rare for him to lose his shirt on an investment, and he said in the 2002 annual report for Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate he controls, that he expects every investment he makes to work out well. And he’s got a decades-long record to prove that most do.So, what’s the secret ‘sauce’? Luckily for us, he spelt out his methodology in that 2002 report. I reckon we can use his advice as a five-step approach to turbocharge our investment results in 2019 and beyond.Conservatively financed companiesFocus on the strength of the balance sheet. Look for levels of debt that make sense and a healthy cash balance. Some, such as British super-investor Lord John Lee, tend to target cash-rich firms, for example.I’d also look for ‘hidden’ debt such as pension obligations, lease commitments and excessive, unpaid creditors. The big no-no is over-gearing. Too much debt can go on to sink a company and your investment in it.Competitive strengthA strong trading niche in the market can mark out superior businesses from poor ones. If a company enjoys good trading economics, it’ll probably show up in a consistent record of rising revenues, earnings cash flow and dividend payments. You’ll also likely find robust profit margins and decent-looking returns on capital and equity.Able and honest directorsLook for directors who are good at what they do. They also need to have ‘clean’ reputations. And search for evidence that they operate with integrity.This chimes with advice from Lord John Lee. He also suggests avoiding firms with a high turnover of directors or advisors or both. If that’s happening, there could be hidden trouble in the company.ValuationGood companies can make poor investments if we pay too much for them. Sometimes, over-exuberance in the investing community can drive the valuations of good businesses too high. Any correction to that over-valuation can keep the shares pegged down despite underlying operational progress.Buffett looks for good firms selling at a price that makes sense of an investment. He pays a fair price for good businesses.Risk versus rewardBuffett looks for more upside potential than there is downside risk. This is where the ‘art’ of investing comes in because you won’t find this out by crunching the numbers. Naturally, Buffett has a good eye for spotting such opportunitiesBut I will say that you probably have better judgement than you might suppose. For me, the hardest thing to learn about investing was to trust my own judgement. But if you learn your lessons along the way, I reckon you’ll have a good chance of succeeding with investing in 2020 and beyond. Good luck!last_img read more

Placed in a land with a native forest surrounding it, the NVD house was designed in order to attend the wishes of a couple with three children: having a weekend residence for relaxing and leisure moments to the family. Located in the interior of São Paulo, the project consists on a dynamic mix of volumes, creating great spans and cantilevers. It is in these different volumes that the whole house’s program is distributed, taking advantage of the maximum integration between the ambiances and of the amplitude of the spaces. The lower volume, lined with rustic granite and wall texture, accommodates the service, the sauna, and the spa areas. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGAbove it, the main and intermediate volume appears; this one corresponds to the ground and access floor. L-shaped and with a raw wall texture, concentrates the social and guest spaces, with an intimate room, three guests suites, kitchen, top overlooking the forest and a 20 meters span-living room with fireplace, terrace and barbecue pit. This volume stands out as it detaches from the housing body in a great cantilever, structural challenge solved by prestressed beams. Its green roof efficiently integrates home and landscape, working as a sustainable solution for thermal balance. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFinally, the upper volume, with a wood-appearance aluminum aspect, accommodates the master suite, the office space and three suites for the children. The balconies of this intimate area offer a view and access to the green roof. Thus, the house makes the most out of the golf course and the vegetation sight. The Interiors Design was made by Noura Van Dijk. The Landscape Project was designed by Luis Carlos Orsini, who was able to offer a harmonious continuity to the surrounding forest.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessStory Pod / Atelier Kastelic BuffeySelected ProjectsCastel San Gimignano Cemetery / MICROSCAPE architecture urban design AASelected Projects Share Projects Houses Lead Architect: Manufacturers: Ecoclima, Luizinho Pedras, Neobambu, Neogran, Plancus, Spas Versati, Technolimp, Viametal Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG+ 32Curated by Matheus Pereira Share NVD House / Studio Arthur Casas CopyHouses•Quinta da Baronesa, Brazil Area:  1277 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Brazil “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio Arthur CasasOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureQuinta da BaronesaBrazilPublished on January 12, 2020Cite: “NVD House / Studio Arthur Casas” [Casa NVD / Studio Arthur Casas] 12 Jan 2020.

Inside Out is a residential project and is located within a high-density urban area. The project site is close to a major highway and is surrounded on all three sides with residential buildings, with a small narrow access road. The owner’s primary concern is privacy and noise reduction, but with access to outdoor space and ventilation.Save this picture!© BeersingnoiWith this contrasting constraint between the location of the project and the owner’s wishes, traditional Thai residential architecture planning was found to be the most successful solution to the challenge. In Traditional Thai residential architecture planning, functions are separated into different “structure” and arranged in a cluster, joined together by a large common terrace.Save this picture!© BeersingnoiSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© BeersingnoiEach “structure” is located with the direction of the sun and seasonal wind in mind, to optimize each function’s need of natural wind and light. We use this concept to design both, horizontal and vertical layout of the building in order to maximize the airflow and allowing for vertically inter-connecting courtyard spaces throughout the project.Save this picture!© BeersingnoiSave this picture!DiagramThe size of each courtyard and the voids, determined the volume and strength of air flowing through each space, thus allowing a vertical ventilation throughout the building. Double walls were used for the exterior of the building to dampen noise pollution from the nearby road. An infinity swimming pool added natural water sounds, allowing the user to experience the natural ventilation, sunlight, and the sky, without the sound of traffic and neighbors.Save this picture!© BeersingnoiThe solid exterior wall was designed to not have any joints, so textured paint with high flexibility was chosen as the final finish to prevent cracks in the future. The location and height of the plants were specified within each courtyard to visually contrast with the dark grey wall and to lower the strength of the up draft coming into the building. The scorching sun is also one of our important concern. Large concrete fins cascading atop of the main courtyard added shades, reducing the heat, and providing shadow play along the large concrete canvas wall throughout the day.Save this picture!© BeersingnoiProject gallerySee allShow lessHome of Blended Pluralities / Ego Design StudioSelected ProjectsFireplace Pavilion / gruppa2020Selected Projects Share Year:  CopyAbout this officeStudio KrubkaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBangkokOn FacebookThailandPublished on February 26, 2021Cite: “Inside-Out House / Studio Krubka” 25 Feb 2021.

Irish research reports drop in charitable income

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The figures showed a decline of about 11% in the numbers of corporate donors giving to charities which represented a 27% decrease in financial terms, from €1.7 million in 2011 to €1.2 million in 2012.The research shows that there were nearly 300,000 general public donors during the Christmas 2012 period, constituting a 4.3% decline in numbers overall from 2011.  The decline in Christmas income, which totalled just over €9 million, was under 1%, indicating that people who continue to be able to donate are doing so generously, according to the research. Fundraising Ireland CEO Anne Hanniffy said: “Charities and Fundraising Ireland fully understands how tough the economic climate is for businesses.   Even taking this into account, however, we are concerned about the size of the drop in corporate donations over the past year, particularly when compared to the smaller drop in general public donations.” The latest research into the level of charitable giving in Ireland shows a fall in corporate and private donations. According to the research by Fundraising Ireland, corporate donations fell by 27% while public donations were down just over 4%. The research is based on a survey of 26 organisations during the 2012 Christmas period, most of which appear to be development charities. A few weeks ago, research by Business in the Community (BITC) showed an increase in corporate support last year. The difference may be down to the types of charities asked, with the BITC research more focused on charities working in Ireland.

Humanitarian release requested for ailing cyber-dissident Zhang Jianhong, who is facing permanent paralysis

first_img August 9, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Humanitarian release requested for ailing cyber-dissident Zhang Jianhong, who is facing permanent paralysis Help by sharing this information News News Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the failure of the prison authorities to treat ailing writer and cyber-dissident Zhang Jianhong, who is also known by the pen-name of Li Hong. Imprisoned since September 2006, Zhang has been in a critical condition for the past three months and could become permanently paralysed.“While China celebrates the approach of the Olympic Games, a prisoner of conscience risks being paralysed for the rest of his life for lack of treatment in prison,” the press freedom organisation said. “For more than two months, the authorities have been turning a deaf ear to Zhang’s request to be treated in hospital. We call for the immediate release of this cyber-dissident, whose dramatic plight is causing even further damage to China’s image.”Zhang’s wife told Radio Free Asia on 5 August: “The prison officials told me on 26 June he was getting treatment but would have to follow the legal procedure to obtain permission to be hospitalised. I have not been able to see him since then. I hope the authorities show enough humanity to allow him to be hospitalised as soon as possible. If they do not, I cannot imagine what will happen.”The same day, more than a thousand friends, colleagues and sympathisers posted an open letter on the Boxun (www.boxun.com) news website calling for Zhang’s release for humanitarian reasons. “If Li Hong (Zhang) is not treated quickly, he could become completely paralysed and die,” the letter said. “If anything terrible happens to him, China could no longer be a credible international partner.”One of the letter’s signatories, Wu Fan, the editor of Zhongguo Shiwu (Chinese Affairs), said of Zhang: “He is someone who wishes the country well. He never wanted to overthrow the government (…) He is an academic, not a terrorist. He cannot be treated in this fashion.”Zhang’s lawyer, Li Jianqiang, received a letter from him in June saying: “My illness is extremely rare. Currently there is no medicine or effective treatment. My condition has deteriorated in the past month and my muscles are atrophying. I virtually cannot move my arms and this phenomenon is spreading to my legs. My feet are already paralysed. If this continues, I will be subjected to the terrible ordeal of complete paralysis, like British physicist Stephen Hawking.”Zhang was sentenced by a court in Ningpo, in the southeastern province of Zhejiang, on 19 March to six years in prison for writing “articles defaming the Chinese government and calling for agitation to overthrow the government.”A member of the Chinese branch of the independent writers association PEN, Zhang founded the literary website Aiqinghai.org in 2005. He also posted regularly on the Weilai Zhongguo forum and wrote articles for Chinese websites based abroad. He spent a year and a half in a reeducation-through-work camp after getting involved in the 1989 pro-democracy movement.
