first_imgThis FTSE stock might just take off again once the market crash is over Image source: Getty Images. Flying in bad weatherIn a trading update released today, Wizz announced that 85% of its fleet is grounded, and it has not ruled out the other 15% following suit. Wizz’s chief executive reiterated early pleas from airline bosses for government assistance for the industry. It sounds bleak for Wizz. However,  solace comes in the form of the €1,501m in cash it had at the end of December 2019. That is enough to pay for over six months of normal costs.Wizz has, like many other companies, cut fixed and variable costs where it can, and executives are joining in by forgoing their salaries for at least five weeks. With the cash pile and cost-cutting, Wizz’s chief executive is very confident the company will survive.Unfortunately for Wizz, the ordinarily sensible practice of partially hedging fuel costs will bite. Jet fuel costs have sunk, meaning Wizz owes money on its hedges. That is usually offset by paying less to fuel planes, but most of the fleet is grounded. The cost is difficult to estimate, but it will reduce the amount of time Wizz can furlough its operations without going bust.Another vote of confidence in Wizz’s ability to see this crisis through comes in the form of director dealings. The companies chief executive bought a sizable chunk of shares two weeks ago. The group’s chair bought a lot last week, and two non-executive directors made smaller purchases at the start of March. Those in charge are backing their words with actions.Shares in Wizz are trading at 2,070p, over 50% below their February all-time high. There is a compelling case for a buy here, but it is a risky one. See all posts by James J. McCombie “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares According to data from FlightRadar, global commercial air traffic has slumped. As the coronavirus spreads across the globe, more flights will be grounded, either because of consumer choice or orders from governments.Faced with losing lethal amounts of revenue, airline bosses have made pleas for aid, for their firms, but also the industry in general. Airlines would be good candidates for avoidance for short-term investors, given the immediate outlook for the industry.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…But long-term investors should not be so quick to bin all airline stocks. Every airline has seen its share price crash over the last month or so. After sifting through the wreckage, I think Wizz Air (LSE: WIZZ) is worth salvaging.The calm before the stormWizz is a low-cost, pay-for-thrills airline, flying short-haul routes (2019 average of 1,635 km per flight) to and from central and eastern European (CEE) countries, where it is the market leader.Passenger numbers have been flying higher, as have revenues. In February 2020, Wizz carried 2.6 times more passengers than it did five years ago. At the same time, Wizz has got better at matching capacity with demand. Load capacity, found by dividing seats sold by those available, has increased from 83.6% to 92.6%.Wizz has assembled a young (average age of planes is just over four years) and fuel-efficient (newer airframes and engines) fleet. Keeping operating costs down, and getting passengers to pay for add-ons has seen profits rise in each of the last four years.Things looked good for Wizz. CEE countries are growing GDP faster than other western markets, and Wizz was benefitting from the spillover into air travel demand. Then the coronavirus hit.

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. See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy It’s been a decent week for the FTSE 100, which climbed 155 points (nearly 2%) to close on Friday just short of 6,017 points. While some people get excited when the Footsie clears thousand-point markers, I don’t see passing the 6,000 mark as significant.The FTSE 100 has had a bad 12 monthsThat said, the past 12 months have been grim for the FTSE 100. Indeed, our main market index has had a meltdown broadly akin to those seen in 2002 and 2008.5G 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…For the record, the FTSE 100 has plunged by 1,230 points since 11 October 2019, a slump of a sixth (17%). Of course, most of this damage was done in early spring, when the Footsie collapsed below 5,000 points on 23 March, before staging a 20% recovery since.This FTSE 100 heavyweight has followed the market downOne trend I’ve previously noted is that the bigger the FTSE 100 company, the more its shares have crashed in 2020. Obviously, there are a few exceptions – yet by and large, this tendency has been pretty pronounced.Take, for instance, shares in pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) – one of the UK’s few world-class healthcare companies. This FTSE 100 stock closed at 1,447.2p on Friday, up 21.8p (1.5%) on the day. Yet GSK shares have slipped downwards with the wider market, losing almost a sixth (15.9%) of their value in 12 months.GSK shares bump along near their lowAt their 52-week high, GSK shares closed at 1,857p on 24 January. Then, during the spring meltdown, they plunged to a low of 1,328.2p on 16 March.After this 28.5% slump from its 2020 high, the stock has zigzagged downwards pretty much relentlessly since mid-May. Today, GSK’s share price hovers just 9% above its March low. As a result, it has underperformed the FTSE 100 by about seven percentage points over six months.I believe GSK’s slump has gone too farRight now, GSK falls soundly into a category I call ‘SLR shares’. These are my favourite stocks in the FTSE 100, because they offer an attractive combination of Safety, Liquidity and Returns (in that order).I’ve been a GSK shareholder for most of the past 30 years and I think they offer compelling value today. Here’s why:1. They trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of 10.9, for an earnings yield of 9.2%. That’s considerably cheaper than the FTSE 100 overall.2. GSK’s yearly dividend of 80p a share is well-covered by its latest earnings per share of 133p. This translates into a current dividend yield of 5.5%, which is almost two-fifths higher than the FTSE 100’s dividend yield of roughly 4%.3. It offers security and deep liquidity as it’s a FTSE 100 heavyweight valued at £72.6bn. It’s also a global leader in HIV/AIDS, oncology (cancer) and respiratory treatments (and vaccines).In summary, I won’t be selling or just holding on. I’d be more than happy to add to my holding in this FTSE 100 champion at today’s price. And I’ll keep reinvesting my dividends into yet more GSK shares to increase my stake while prices are so low.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

This house inspires security and balance through its square form. Immersed in a round base, it inspires creativity and harmony from the sky. These two shapes -sky and earth- are present in the Chinese coin.Save this picture!© Enrique MenachoThe main shape of the Chinese Coin House relates to prosperity. On both its sides, the Milky Way was expressed, utilizing the concept that irradiates prosperity.Save this picture!© Enrique MenachoAll the house’s measurements are based in the Golden Number (or Golden Ratio): number Phi (Fi) Phi: 1,618. This number is found in the geometrical distribution of patterns, such as sunflower seeds, a bee’s body, even in the human body. Ancient Egyptians used this concept to build the pyramids. Ancient Greeks used it to build the Parthenon. Leonard da Vince applied it to his masterpiece: the Mona Lisa. The Eiffel Tower was also built under this same principle.Save this picture!SectionMany of the ancient cultures that accumulated a profound wisdom applied to the functioning of nature, gave a transcendental importance to location and to the way houses were built. Throughout centuries, observing the interaction between house and man led to the wise conclusion that our inner coherence, physical and mental health and our abundance and happiness depended on how our houses were built. There are several schools of thought that have recovered and restructured this wisdom.Save this picture!© Enrique MenachoWhen building a house today, it’s no longer possible to ignore these factors. Some examples are determining a location site according to the earth’s electromagnetic lines irradiating low intensity gamma rays; distributing interior spaces in a house, considering location of the four cardinal points, or using the golden number or ratio phi to establish the proportions of longitude, depth and volume (this measurement is needed to recreate spaces, giving its inhabitants stability and harmony). The Chinese Coin house was conceived considering all these principals, providing characteristics of an immeasurable value for the wellbeing of the family and guaranteeing the house is constituted as a real energetic battery. Some of them are:Save this picture!© Enrique Menacho-The location of the house sets the room’s orientation in an open area, free of any negative effect that might be created by the crossing of electromagnetic lines, heightened when subterranean water currents meet.-The harmonic traces of design follow the shapes and proportions of the sacred geometry, imitating perfection of the universe.-The definition and location of the main door of the house guarantees that the chi, the vital energy, will be attracted inside, in a unequivocal and generous manner.-The distribution of interior spaces of the household follow the order of bigger over smaller, establishing the dormitories, living room, kitchen and bathrooms, according to the four cardinal points.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessA Crash Course on Modern Architecture (Part 2)Articles30 Unit Multifamily Housing Building / NarchSelected Projects Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/369059/chinese-coin-house-juan-carlos-menacho Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia Architects: Juan Carlos Menacho Area Area of this architecture project Area:  350 m² Area:  350 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/369059/chinese-coin-house-juan-carlos-menacho Clipboard 2013 Projects Bolivia 2013 Year:  Save this picture!© Enrique Menacho+ 15 Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeJuan Carlos MenachoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta Cruz de la SierraHousesBoliviaPublished on May 07, 2013Cite: “Chinese Coin House / Juan Carlos Menacho” 07 May 2013.

The house is set in a beautiful site surrounded by a pine forest near the Lebanese mountain village of Bois de Boulogne and comes with a wide range of complications. Firstly, it already had the remains of a house on it. Though of limited architectural interest, the house had been one of the first modern homes built in the resort in the 1930’s and originally belonged to the current owner’s grandfather. Fought over at the outset of Lebanon’s wars – the town straddled an important frontline – it had developed a bloody reputation. Damaged by gunfire and shelling, it had been occupied by the assorted military and militia forces and was used for 28 years as a torture and detention center.  We were facing a house with its splendor past buried in memory.Save this picture!© Richard SaadIt all started with deciding how to go about this ‘difficult exorcism’: whether to work with what remained, as the owner wished to preserve some connection to his grandfather’s house despite its painful associations or to start from scratch and wipe away both the connection and the unfortunate history. In the end, the decision was taken to do both. The ruins were gutted then reinforced and reused as a historic shell into which a brand-new home could be inserted, the architectural emulation of the hermit crab, which makes its home in the abandoned shells of other mollusks.Save this picture!© Geraldine BruneelSave this picture!© Joe KesrouaniCleaning up the house and its surrounding garden took 4 months of intense work. This ruin’s new ‘resident’ is a series of spartan perforated Corten steel-clad boxes. Stacked on one another, they nestle in the embrace of the two remaining sections of the house but also project beyond it, both at the roofline where their aesthetically rusting outline is just visible above the parapets and at the south-eastern end of the house, where they project dramatically above a low-slung, 35-meter Corten steel-clad concrete and glass oblong with a planted roof.  The Corten steel skin changes color with time and is punctured with tiny dots echoing patterns of trees, a sort of “tree trunk ghost” projected on the façade.Save this picture!© Joe KesrouaniThe renovation added more than 2,000 square meters to the original 1,500 square meters stone house, along with an annex and guard house. Sustainable design was at the core of the renovation. In fact, the house uses solar energy for winter heating while harvesting rainwater and walls are backed with a double insulation layer. Among passive cooling strategies, the villa’s shading is designed to take advantage of natural light. Partially sunk into the ground the volume houses a pool and an art gallery. Stretching through a grove of replanted pine trees, it is inserted in the sloping ground towards the snow-clad mountains in the distance.Save this picture!© Joe KesrouaniSunk into the landscape through terracing, the house is designed to blend into its surroundings. Climbing plants and vines colonize the ruins to camouflage the past, cleansing the house of its troubled history.  More than a 1000 pine trees were planted in the garden: umbrella pines, oak trees, cork trees, Lebanese cedars, and other indigenous trees upholster the landscape which also includes a rose garden. The revival of walls, plants, and life inside finally took place in the house after long decades of gloomy events.Save this picture!© Joe KesrouaniSave this picture!© Joe KesrouaniThe case of this house is as dreadful as it is beautiful. The story behind it and the testimonials backing it makes it stand as a powerful message. The House with two lives restores faith in man’s will to fight and is with no doubt an example of an architectural work of high precision.

The house was thought based on the attributes of the north-west slope where it is located and the difficulties of the sloping construction. The land has a ratio of 1:10 from the road to the change of waters between the Cajón del Arrayan and the Cajón del Cerro Pochoco -in the outskirts of Santiago-, conserving flora and fauna endemic to Chile. It goes, in ascending form, from quillayes and litres, in the low part, until puyas and cactus in the top. On the hillside rise the warm wind currents of the afternoon, attracting the flight of different birds, including eagles and condors.The house is inserted in this relationship between the soil and the wind of the pre-Cordillera.Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalAfter several observation and measurement visits, a tree-free place was defined -at an initial height of the site-, in which there is an open view of the nearby valley and the distant city.Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalA reinforced concrete base is proposed, stabilizing the ground in a large horizontal, with two terraces-miradors at its ends.

first_img Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent February 13, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the acquittal on appeal of Asumani Niyonambaza, editor of the bi-monthly newspaper Rugari.A judge at the Nyarugenge High Court in the capital Kigali on 23 April quashed his two-year jail sentence handed down in the lower court on a charge of “extortion” and ordered his immediate release. The appeal judge said there was no proof of the editor’s guilt.“We hail the release and acquittal of Asumani Niyonambaza, who has been imprisoned for more than eight months for an offence he did not commit”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The High Court decision does no more than deliver justice to this editor and his newspaper.”Niyonambaza was sentenced in August 2009. Two other accused, Frank Kalisa presenter on privately owned radio Contact FM, and Richard Rutagwenda, sanitary services agent, were both acquitted. Niyonambaza then launched an appeal. ——————————————————————————————-13.09.2009 – Two journalists given jail sentences in separate cases two days apartReporters Without Borders calls for the release of two journalists who have been given prison sentences in separate cases in the past few days. Newspaper editor Asumani Niyonambaza was sentenced to two years in prison. Reporter Amani Ntakundi got a three-month sentence.“There were absolutely no grounds for these jails sentences,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Trials, threats, intimidation and smears are all used to punish independent journalists in Rwanda. We urge the judges who convicted these journalists to reverse their decisions.”Niyonambaza, the editor of the Kinyarwanda-language fortnightly Rugari, received his sentence on 7 August from the Nyarugenge district court in the capital, Kigali, after being convicted of trying to extort 500,000 Rwandan francs (630 euros) from a businessman in return for not publishing an article about him. Two other journalists, radio presenters Frank Kalisa and Richard Rutagwenda of privately-owned Contact FM, were acquitted on the same charge. Niyonambaza, who is being held in the main Kigali prison, has appealed against his conviction.Ntakundi, who works for the fortnightly Rushyashya, received his sentenced from a Gacaca (special people’s court for crimes relating to the 1994 genocide) in the southern city of Butare for taking photos while covering a trial on 5 August. As he had a permit issued by the national agency for Gacaca courts, Ntakundi thought he was allowed to take photos. But the court ruled that he was disrupting its work and ordered him detained on the spot for a three-month period. He was taken to Butare prison.The two jail sentences were imposed in the same week that Umuseso, a weekly often targeted by the Rwandan authorities, was suspended for three months.
