first_img A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a piece stating that I would buy airline stocks. Since then, each airline stock has risen sharply. easyJet (LSE: EZY) is one of these shares, and in the last two weeks, it has risen by around 65%. The shares have also doubled from their recent lows. This is due to the news that some flights will resume from 15 June. But while this is undoubtedly good news for the company, the airline industry is still having to deal with huge issues.A second wave could cripple easyJet shares A second coronavirus wave has seemed ever more likely in the UK, especially after the easing of lockdown rules. While a second wave would negatively affect the whole market, easyJet shares would be damaged disproportionately because of their reliance on the tourism industry. A forced return to grounding fleets would therefore be catastrophic for the budget airline. Even if easyJet could still run flights, I believe demand for air travel would be minimal at best due to consumer fears about the risks associated with flying in the ‘new normal’. Airlines are therefore hugely challenged.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…Airline industry to be much less profitable?Even if the UK is able to prevent a second wave, I still can’t see the airline industry thriving. Instead, I think it will become a significantly less profitable sector. For example, one of easyJet’s plans includes leaving the middle seat free on its planes. This would immediately reduce profits if ticket prices didn’t rise radically, thus damaging the price of easyJet shares. Costs will also rise due to having to disinfect the planes consistently. This will increase capital expenditures at the same time as operating cash flow is decreasing. And rather than ticket price rises, discounts will also be necessary in order to encourage more customers. In such a high expenditure industry, I expect that profit margins will therefore be very low over the next few years.A rights issue may be necessary If easyJet is in need of more cash to stay in business, there’s also the significant possibility of it launching a rights issue. This was speculated on by City analyst Mark Manduca, who thinks it’s likely easyJet may have to raise between £700m and £1bn. Issuing shares would probably be the way forward for the firm if it sought more cash and a rights issue could have a negative impact on easyJet shares overall. After all, more shares on the market dilutes the stock price.So in the final analysis, I would avoid easyJet shares for the time being. Although this contradicts my previous article, I believe that the 65% rise since I wrote about the firm has left easyJet shares over-priced. I personally sold my stake in the airline recently because I believe that investors are now being too optimistic. They’re expecting the shares to fly, despite the many struggles airlines will have to face over the next few years.

first_img Editor’s Note: This is the 12th in a series of articles published by The Apopka Voice in 2016 that were the most noteworthy events of the year. The Apopka Voice will publish them starting Monday, December 26th and running until Sunday, January 1st. On January, 2nd we will publish a poll and let the readers decide on which story is the most impactful of the year. A contentious, but substantive processNews AnalysisOriginally Published: September 30th, 2016By a 3-2 vote the Apopka City Council approved a millage rate of 3.7876, and its 2016-17 fiscal year budget of $104,083,516 passed by a 4-1 vote. In between those two decisions, the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) board voted 7-0 to approve its budget of $2.05 million. Those were the black and white results of the final budget hearing. However a lot of things happened during this seven month marathon to get the City Council to these results.First read what Commissioner Diane Velazquez said about the amount of time this Council put into the budget process.Commissioner Diane Velazquez: “When I expressed my disappointment, I felt there was enough time in-between (meetings) to have addressed some kind of clarification regarding budget and millage.”“We had five budget meetings. They lasted 21 hours, 18 minutes and 17 seconds. There were 21 days between the last budget workshop and the first public hearing. There were 14 business days that City Hall was open in that period. When I expressed my disappointment, I felt there was enough time in-between to have addressed some kind of clarification regarding budget and millage… and so when we sat for the first hearing I was surprised at the vote.”Velazquez was disappointed that the Council could not reach a 5-0 result and stand side-by-side on the final product. It appeared that’s how it would go after a 5-0 consent vote at the last workshop meeting in August, and that is a valid reaction after the amount of time and effort put in.However consent in a workshop and an official final vote are two different things in Commissioner Doug Bankson’s opinion.“All of the different points brought up were things I was in opposition to,” said Bankson. But there are times when we move forward by consensus and that’s how we have to work. At our last workshop my understanding was that we would be putting all that excess back into the reserves. I was at peace with that and didn’t realize I needed to get further clarification because I thought it was clear.”Bankson is a budget hawk. In his campaign he ran primarily on fiscal responsibility, budget issues, low taxes and reserves management. It was a likely conclusion that a budget which includes raising millage rates and taking funds out of the reserve would merit a no-vote from him.He also thought it was important to listen to the public comments before making his final decision.Commissioner Doug Bankson: “We’re not any other city. We’re us. We have to function as we function.”“My understanding is that hearings are for the public to be heard. It’s not simply for us to have two times to say ‘this is what we’ve already decided’. But that through the hearings we would get added input from the citizens of whom this is their money… and then make those decisions. I did not see this as a closed event.”Commissioner Billie Dean was also a part of the 5-0 consensus vote at the workshops, but was clearly influenced by public comments. At both meetings, Dean echoed points made by public speakers. To the very end, Dean was calling for cuts and questioning parts of the budget that were discussed in detail at the workshops. Every item he mentioned combined would represent less than one-percent of the budget, but he argued for the cuts with passion to say the least.Mayor Joe Kilsheimer displayed passion that matched Dean both at workshops and at the two City Council meetings. He detailed the work put into this budget not only by the Council, but the effort of City staff led by City Administrator Glenn Irby and Finance Director Pamela Barclay.“The budget as proposed by the administration… by Pam, by Glenn is the compilation of work that began last February. Our department heads submitted budgets and there were requests and we cut millions of dollars from what our department heads said they needed to operate their budget at what they consider to be a reasonable level. And let me reinforce the point that virtually all of our department heads live in the city of Apopka. They are members of this community. The majority of our department heads have worked for the City of Apopka for their entire careers, and they’re not spendthrifts. They don’t come to Glenn and Pam with wild budget ideas. They come to Glenn and Pam and say ‘this is what we need to run the city responsibly’.”Kilsheimer is a full-time mayor that works with this staff on a daily basis. In his two-and-a-half years in office, he has become fiercely loyal and protective of them. That loyalty showed up in his defense of the budget expenditures, and in his focus on Apopka’s future.Mayor Joe Kilsheimer: “The one policy guideline I have given to staff is ‘we need to be thinking about how we can set up Apopka for success’.”“The one policy guideline I have given to staff is ‘we need to be thinking about how we can set Apopka up for success’,” Kilsheimer said. “We’ve got growth coming at us. When the Wekiva Parkway opens in 2021 growth is going to hit us like a tsunami. And we need to be ready in a public safety perspective. We need to be ready in a public services perspective. That’s why one of the things we’re doing with this budget is launching construction of a new wastewater treatment plant… which in itself is a $50-million project that will take several years to construct. Not a single thing in this budget in my opinion is frivolous or unnecessary. It’s all an investment in our community. We’re investing in Apopka in order to prepare ourselves for the future. That’s why we had to swallow hard this year, and say we need to do things like build a fire station. We can’t risk our ISO-1 rating. We have to build a communications tower on the north side of town. We’ve got firefighters and police officers that when they go into a house on the north said of town they lose communication. That’s a disaster waiting to happen. And to imply that somehow we are spendthrifts is to me…I find it insulting to the staff and to the City of Apopka because it is our professionals who are coming to tell us ‘this is what we need to run our departments on a professional basis’.”Commissioner Kyle Becker is a business analyst… he’s a numbers guy. He dug deep into this 700-plus page budget like some of us would tear into a page-turning novel. He came to the City Council budget meetings comfortable with the higher millage rate, with the idea of using reserves to balance the budget and the specific expenditures of the budget. In his usual style, Becker listened to public and City Council comments, and then delivered his rebuttal to the budget’s critics.“If we don’t move in accord with our population growth and what our residents expect in service we will fail,” he said. “And it is worth mentioning that our taxes are low… even at 3.7876 it’s 12% lower than Winter Garden, 33% lower than Maitland, 16% lower than Belle Isle, 15% lower than Winter Park, 71% lower than Ocoee, 75% lower than Orlando, 43% lower than Altamonte Springs, 45% lower than Longwood, 93% lower than Sanford, and 28% lower than Winter Springs… and I will tell you that we have better services than any of those I just mentioned and what that tells us is that our staff is working at a very lean rate, and very successful with the resources that they have available to them. If our employees aren’t being paid like they are in other cities, then they’re going to go to those other cities. We are going to lose talent. People are going to leave. What positions are we willing to go without if we freeze our spending? It’s not realistic in my opinion. But I get what all of you are saying. No one up here says ‘we want to spend more money’. And a lot of these things are subjective in terms of importance or whether they are vital to our city… but obviously a lot of our bigger expenditures this year go directly to public safety. Some of these things we could debate all night whether the city should be spending on the festivals or this or that, but I’m in a good place of comfort having gone through what we discussed…going through this budget page-by-page. I think that it’s in a good spot.”Commissioner Kyle Becker: “If we don’t move in accord with our population growth and what our residents expect in service, we will fail.”Bankson saw common ground with Becker, but the reserve ratio still concerns him.“I do agree with Commissioner Becker. There are things that have been left too long that we have to address and that’s something we cannot ignore. I’m a very fair-minded person. I believe and I was convinced there are things we cannot do without. We have to build a (communications) tower. We have to do certain things. My concern is the next few years beyond this. And this is why my sticking point is to make sure we’re looking at those reserves. We’re not any other city. We’re us. We have to function as we function. In Winter Park they have a different set of structures and resources, however they have reserves at 24.6% with a goal to reach 30%. I’d like to see us move more in that direction.”Not everyone was in a good place after the voting concluded. Velazquez wanted unity. Bankson wanted more money put back into reserves. Dean wanted additional cuts. Many public speakers wanted the millage rate to stay the same as it was in 2015-16. No one got everything they wanted in this budget. That is usually the way a good negotiation goes.Here is what everyone did get though.The City Council met five times with city staff and department leaders for 20-plus hours. They went page-by-page through the budget. They argued. They debated. They agreed. They negotiated. They cut department spending in certain places, and they accepted their proposals in others. The major expenditures – public safety, additional firefighters and police officers, a fire station and a communications tower were agreed upon with unanimous support.They also had a great debate on millage rates, reserve management and how to balance those with economic development and the future trajectory of Apopka.And the public was given two opportunities to weigh-in, and they did so with their usual spirit and candor. City Commissioners took their thoughts seriously to the point of starting debates on the Council level that originated from a public speaker that engaged not only commissioners and the mayor, but city staff as well. In a way, the budgeting process worked exactly as it was supposed to. Consensus moved the final outcome, but no one’s opinions or thoughts were discounted…and in the end the City Council passed a budget on time.And in the oddest of ways, this budget process seemed to bond the City Council despite significant disagreement on certain issues. Read these statements by Kilsheimer and Bankson:“We’re not perfect up here by any stretch of the imagination,” said Kilsheimer. “I’m not making any claims that we’re perfect. And we will make mistakes. But we are all, in my opinion, honest people doing an honest day’s work… trying to do the best for our city as we see fit.”“I think everyone’s intention is sincere,” said Bankson. I think everyone is working hard, and here we are.”Here we are indeed.

first_imgFriday Sep 17, 2010 Sireli Bobo scores from Francois Steyn quick restart Theres no Test rugby this weekend but there are still loads of games taking place, with matches in the Currie Cup, Magners League, ITM Cup, Aviva Premiership, and the French Top 14. Here is a short clip from the Top 14 last weekend, the type of try you definitely dont see very often, if at all.It comes from Racing Metros impressive 43-18 win over newcomers La Rochelle, who after having kicked a penalty, were caught off guard at the restart as Francois Steyn took it quickly. Flying Fijian Sireli Bobo was wide awake and quick enough to chase the well placed kick and cross for a try that would have incensed the opposition.Steyn, who took a bit of stick for his performances for the Springboks in the Tri Nations, offers that something extra and while he can be error prone, hes shown that hes not afraid to back his own ability.He has also recently stated that one of the things he likes about the Top 14 is that hes allowed to try things, which obviously suits of player of his natural ability.Another star, Juan Martin Hernandez, made his first start for the club but unfortunately went off before half time after he was hit hard in two big tackles. He will be out of action for two weeks with a thigh injury.Questions could be asked of the legality of this try, considering that Bobo was perhaps a foot or so ahead of the moment Steyn made contact with the ball. It was still a neat piece of play by the two of them though and I thought it would be interested to share.Have a good weekend, watch as much as you can, and get in touch as soon as you see something you think should be shown here next week.

Khezershahr town is in the coastal city of Babolsar and spreads across the north to the south side of the city belt. The “Villa 174” is on the south side. Constructed on a grid base with specific regulations applied to it. The layout of each building block is determined by the town’s construction codes e.g. the maximum height of each villa is 9 meters. The external material is to be cement render or timber and fences should not be masonry.Save this picture!© Deed StudioSave this picture!South elevationSave this picture!© Deed StudioThe client of “Villa 174” is a middle-aged couple with their three sons. They expected a light-filled environment and an integrated space on the ground floor. Interacting with the designer, the client agreed to apply details different from those of his current experience.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe ground floor consists of the entry, Living room, Media room, Kitchen and a guest bedroom (intended for their grandmother). The first floor consists of the master bedroom, children’s bedroom, kitchenette and a small living room. The main terrace is located on the north side, accessible from the bedrooms and living room. Besides, it is also positioned in the direction of the sea breeze. The master bedroom extends from north to south providing a bright atmosphere and benefitting from natural ventilation.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe initial design intention was to provide a light-filled space with natural ventilation; this goal achieved by creating a transparent form and, placing openings on both the north and south sides, as well as incorporating a linear terrace on the north side. Generally, in the design of space, walls, floors and ceilings, the design team attempted to integrate interior and exterior, separated only by glass walls. Use of corner windows open ups the internal area to external which maximizes the transparency of the house.Save this picture!© Deed StudioUnlike other gabled roof buildings in the neighborhood, which give a sense of heaviness, the roof of “villa 174” engaged thin slabs. With their different levels, these slabs not only hide the sloped roof but also emphasize the lightness of the roof. Following the roof shape, tall and skinny windows are placed at wall and ceiling joints. The building placed on a sleeper wall to compensate for high humidity of the region. Also, window hoods used to protect against heavy rains. Besides, at the north terrace, sun shields designed to control sun and rainfalls, enabling the terrace all year round.Save this picture!© Deed StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessYanqing Grape Expo / Archea AssociatiSelected ProjectsThe Church on Tidal Flats / CWXDSelected Projects Share Architects: Cedrus Studio Area Area of this architecture project Villa 174 / Cedrus Studio “COPY” ArchDailylast_img read more

first_imgIn Indianapolis, before final four game April 4.From the minute Indiana Gov. Mike Pense passed the bigoted “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” the law permitting businesses to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer peoples has faced the fury of LGBTQ people and their allies throughout the country.On April 2, Pense, trying desperately to recover from the backlash, announced a series of changes to the law that prevent businesses from using it to refuse “to offer or provide services, facilities, use of public accommodations, goods, employment, or housing” based on “race, color, religion, ancestry, age, national origin, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or United States military service.”As a result, CNN notes, “the state has now enacted protections based on sexual orientation for the first time in its history.” (April 2)The law must be seen in the context of a legacy of bigoted, anti-worker attacks throughout much of the history of Indiana. The state was a major center for the Ku Klux Klan, with some 20,000 registered members of the arch-racist organization in the 1930s. (workers.org, June 22, 2006)Of course, repression always breeds resistance, and the legacy of fightback in Indiana matches the efforts of bosses and the bigots (who are, most often, one and the same). In 1893, socialist Eugene V. Debs formed the American Railway Union, whose 150,000 members would make it one of the largest unions in the country a year later. Steven C. Pitts, reviewing the book “Black Freedom Fighters in Steel,” notes that in northwest Indiana, “the battle against racism was central to the advancement of rights for all workers in the workplace and within the union.” (muse.jhu.edu)In recent years, the Hoosiers Anti-Racist Movement has been monitoring and exposing the activities of neofascists in the area. Part of this work included defending the Tinley Park Five, a group of white antiracist anarchists who were imprisoned after they broke up a meeting of racists in a Chicago suburb. (workers.org, June 8, 2012)And on March 30, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees announced it was pulling its three-day national women’s conference, scheduled to be held in October and expected to generate a half-million dollars, from Indianapolis in response to the bigoted act. (indystar.com, April 3)Massive protests against the bill were held outside Lucas Oil Stadium prior to the NCAA’s Final Four men’s basketball tournament April 4 in Indianapolis, as well as outside the state Capitol there.The attack on LGBTQ people in Indiana is part of a larger onslaught against workers’ ability to survive under low-wage capitalism. Indiana in recent years has seen a precipitous decline in union membership, well below the national average and less than half of what it was 25 years ago when it was one of the highest in the country. (blogs.butler.edu, April 30, 2013) This decline is directly related to the state’s imposition of so-called “right-to-work” (for-less) laws and stripping Indiana public unions of collective bargaining rights.The bill must also be placed side by side with the recent conviction and sentencing in Indiana of 33-year-old Purvi Patel, a South-Asian-American woman, to 41 years, with 20 to be served in prison, for the conflicting charges of having a miscarriage and of feticide. (See workers.org, “Indiana woman criminalized after miscarriage,” Feb. 19: tinyurl.com/qx2yebo)Continued resistance will be needed to win true liberation for LGBTQ people, women, people of color and all workers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

But because we have so many different mediums of art, we want to do the same thing with our music.”The genres featured throughout the weekend included country, jazz, R&B, Latin, blues and more.This year, Music On Main featured a “Locals Only” stage, as well as a singer/songwriter performance tent, hosting artists from the Dallas-Fort Worth area.Armstrong said national headliner musicians are booked through an entertainment production agent that has worked with the festival committee for years. The committee aims to have new national headliners each year.Premier guitarist Robin Ford performed Friday evening. A five-time Grammy Award nominee, Ford has played with artists such as Bob Dylan and Brad Paisley.“Watching Robin was one of the coolest shows I have seen here at the arts fest,” said Joan Edwards, an audience member and frequent festival attendee. “I think this year had the most variety of musicians than ever before.
