Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The new ISA year that started in April is now well under way. I wrote back then about some high-growth stocks that I would want to include in my fresh Stocks and Shares ISA for the coming year. Ideally, I’m looking to buy some stocks each month within the ISA, chipping away at the £20,000 limit. As a reminder, any gains I make by selling a stock within my SA are free from capital gains tax. This makes it an appealing home for my investments. It allows me to retain more of the profit in the future. With that in mind, here’s a high-growth stock that I’m looking to buy.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…Banking on a good outlookIncluding a bank as a high-growth stock might seem unusual. However, NatWest Group (LSE:NWG) does fit the bill, I feel. The share price is up 67% over the past 12 months, and is still moving higher.The UK-based bank did struggle during 2020, posting a loss of £351m. This was largely due to the billions in provisions set aside due to the negative impact of the pandemic. This was seen across the industry, so was nothing NatWest specifically did wrong.I think the outlook is much more positive in 2021. This makes it appealing to include in my Stocks and Shares ISA. For a start, the resumption of a dividend payment has been announced. A final dividend of 3p per share totals £364m. This clearly shows the company has confidence in future profitability, otherwise such funds would likely have been retained.Also, the UK Government recently sold some of its stake in the business. It reduced the stake to 54.8%, selling £1.1bn in value. The more NatWest stock that goes back into the market, or gets bought back in share repurchases by the bank, the better I think this is. It allows market demand and supply to operate more efficiently.A risk with adding NatWest shares to my Stocks and Shares ISA is that the bank is heavily exposed to the UK. It recently announced that it’s pulling out of the Republic of Ireland via the sale of Ulster Bank. My concern here is that unlike HSBC and Barclays, the company’s UK exposure makes it more dependent on that one economy.An addition to my Stocks and Shares ISABy adding NatWest shares to my ISA for June, it should help to build up my portfolio for the year. Next month, I’ll hopefully find another high-growth stock to buy as well. In this way, I’m not rushed come next April to buy close to the Stocks and Shares ISA deadline.Thinking ahead allows me to choose my targets as opportunities arise. I think this is a much better way to build up my ISA over time, and I’d look to buy NatWest shares now.

The purpose of this renovation project of a late nineteenth century building in Kyoto is to renew the reception area of a guesthouse, Kaikoan (http://kaikoan.jp/en/stay), and to create a new space for a costume rental shop. Due to the differences of programs, the upper level and the lower level bring distinct atmospheres to the users.Save this picture!Plan 0Save this picture!© Keishiro YamadaThe lower level, which is used for the reception, is a public area of the building and has a more open atmosphere. The existing columns and beams, which were formerly hidden behind panels, are now exposed with a continuous white painted wall. The new wall is featured with rounded corners and wraps around the columns. This brings an ambiguous quality to the wall: it is solid but at the same time feels like fabric. Additionally, the white colour of the wall and its height at the underside level of the beams provide a strong contrast to the space. This design feature detaches the wall from the original elements, allowing the post and beam structure to retain openness.Save this picture!© Keishiro YamadaThe upper level is designed for the costume rental shop, which includes a waiting room, a changing room, a makeup and hair-setting area. In response to the white colour of the exterior wall, the existing interior finishes of the peripheral walls and the ceiling are also painted in white. With this design feature, the space is presented like a floating white volume, an intimate space as if it is scooped out from a mass. The quality of the space is further enhanced by the apertures  which, in contrast to the full height openings on the lower level, are holes in the wall. The columns, beams and walls other than those on the periphery are left as they are, being treated as separate elements distinct from the white volume.Save this picture!© Keishiro YamadaProject gallerySee allShow lessHousing Flandre / B612 AssociatesSelected ProjectsSTUDIO QI Hangzhou Office / Shanshan Qi, Jian HuangSelected Projects Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/789266/366-kashiracho-naad Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/789266/366-kashiracho-naad Clipboardlast_img read more

Vegue & Francisco SepúlvedaThis is why we decided to build the house with structural walls, because we do not need to get too high with them, saving time and money to our client during the construction process, and thanks to their thickness, those walls will also help to contribute to save energy and improve the sustainability of the house.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!ModelThis structural walls come from the extrusion of two sections, generating two long parallel pieces starting from the street façade and getting into the yard. They don´t touch each other but they are connected by some flat roofs, covering the utility spaces like the hall, the laundry or the parking.Save this picture!© Eugenio H. Vegue & Francisco SepúlvedaThe interior of one of the main long pieces has no walls and we will find there a large open space where the living room, the dining room and the library-studio are all the same, getting light from everywhere, the street, the skylights on the roof and the yard, but with the possibility of being divided thanks to mobile partitions. The client will be able to play with this space depending on its use.Save this picture!© Eugenio H. Vegue & Francisco SepúlvedaThe other long piece has inside all the bedrooms and kitchen, it holds the most intimate spaces, and it ends up on a great porch, where it merges together with the other piece and the yard, and also a pool, where for sure the client will have good moments and will enjoy the good weather that they use to have on this site during most of the year.Save this picture!© Eugenio H. Vegue & Francisco SepúlvedaFor a better passive energy performance, the house has ceramic ventilated double façades, with exterior isolation, also the windows are opened thinking on those places were sun doesn´t heat too much.  The interior cooling and heating will be done by a special radiating floor. Both passive and active energetic systems will become this house really efficient, and our client will be saving money and energy every day, becoming a cheap house to live in, recovering soon the initial investment.This is a really studied project.

Tribute to an anti-racist fighter and thinker

first_imgVince CopelandThe first known celebration of the end of slavery in the U.S. came on June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers landed in Galveston, Texas, with the news that the Civil War was over and those who had been enslaved were free. That glorious day became known as Juneteenth.This Juneteenth also happens to be the 100th anniversary of the birth of a wonderful comrade and founding member of Workers World Party, Vincent Copeland.Copeland put his revolutionary politics into action as a steelworker, union militant, activist and the first editor of Workers World newspaper. He was fired from Bethlehem Steel in 1950 after leading what the company called a “wildcat” strike. Some 16,000 workers then walked out, trying to get him back.The big issue in steel then was the racist seniority system, by which the company could hire white workers off the street for better jobs and pass over Black workers with years of seniority in the most dangerous and difficult departments, the coke ovens and blast furnaces. Copeland helped build a Black-white caucus to fight for plantwide seniority. His pamphlet “Blast Furnace Brothers” showed how it could be done, even at a time when racism was rampant.Harper’s Ferry & the unfinished revolutionCopeland later rediscovered an account of the 1859 raid on Harper’s Ferry, written by a survivor of that attempt to start the war against slavery. He republished it in the book “A Voice from Harper’s Ferry” by Osborne P. Anderson, “A Black revolutionary who was there.” Copeland’s introduction to the book, “The Unfinished Revolution,” has much relevance to today’s struggles against racism and white supremacy. Toward the end, Copeland writes about the revolutionaries of that era and this:“By clearing the field of this ancient evil [chattel slavery], they laid the basis for the modern struggle against the modern evils.“The fact that this modern struggle, the fight for socialism, is a long time coming; the fact that it must overcome mountains of miseducation, ruling-class racism and deceit, obscures, just as the pre-Civil War official philosophy and racism did, the inevitability of the coming revolution. It obscures the absolutely irreconcilable character of the class antagonisms that will and must be fought through to the end.“The class antagonisms of today are very different from those of 1859 and 1861. The struggle this time will be led by the oppressed themselves — that is, by the Browns and the Andersons of the proletariat rather than by the Lincolns and Grants of the bourgeoisie. Where the heroes of Harper’s Ferry failed to effect the kind of revolution they wanted, their descendants will succeed.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Corey Jones: Another victim of police terror

first_imgEarly on the morning of Oct. 18, Corey Jones was sitting in his broken-down SUV on the roadside of an I-95 exit ramp, waiting for a tow truck to arrive.  Jones, 31 years old and African American, was driving home from a gig as a drummer with his band, when his vehicle broke down in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.  At 2:52 a.m., Jones spoke to his brother by cell phone.  By 3:15 a.m., he was dead, felled by three police bullets.  The Jones’ family and their attorneys, Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks, met with the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s office on Oct. 22, asking how and why their loved one was killed.  The lawyers reported that plainclothes police officer Nouman Raja had driven a large, unmarked department van with tinted windows to the encounter with Jones, without flashing police lights or showing his badge. Raja fired six bullets at Jones.  He claims that Jones confronted him with a gun, but the young man, who had a legal permit for a gun he’d purchased only three days earlier, never fired a shot.  Attorney Crump said that Jones was running away, and that his body was found nearly 100 feet from his vehicle.  His gun was not found near his body or his car.  Crump stressed: “There are so many unanswered questions. It’s hard to understand because it makes no sense to them and it makes no sense to me.” (Guardian, Oct. 22)   Raja has a history of violating police procedures.  He was disciplined three times for mishandling documents and evidence with his former employer, the Atlantis, Fla., Police Department.  By driving an unmarked police van to confront Jones and not identifying himself, Raja breached departmental rules. He is now on administrative leave — with pay.After their meeting, Jones’ relatives joined hundreds of demonstrators assembled outside the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department, demanding the truth about Raja’s actions and Jones’ death.  They dispute the officer’s version of events, and are calling for an independent investigation. The next evening, hundreds of people gathered at a Town Hall meeting in West Palm Beach to demand accountability for Jones’ death and discuss racism in the criminal justice system and police use of deadly force.   Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, told the crowd to never stop demanding justice.  Her son, an unarmed African-American youth, was slain by vigilante George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla., in 2012.  Zimmerman’s acquittal for the crime set off nationwide protests.Jones’ family tells of who their son and brother was — a city housing authority worker, college graduate, church drummer, music lover and bringer of good cheer to his friends and relatives.Police brutality: ‘business as usual’But to police, Corey Jones was merely a statistic, one of 931 people killed by U.S. law enforcement officers doing “business as usual” so far this year — through Oct. 23.  Of these deaths, 228 were of African Americans, says “The Counted,” at the Guardian’s blog.  Although 13.2 percent of the U.S. population, African Americans comprise 25 percent of police-caused fatalities.Due to public pressure, the FBI says it will investigate Jones’ death.  But how will he get justice?  FBI officials claim that close “scrutiny and criticism” of police officers due to “publicized” police brutality episodes, is causing higher crime rates, because officers are constrained and “less aggressive.” (New York Times, Oct. 24)  No proof of that exists. Even top Department of Justice officials dispute it.In fact, a perusal of the Guardian’s comprehensive data base shows the continuing reality of police aggression. It has not diminished at all.  Terror against people of color has not lessened.  That blog estimates that the number of lethal police assaults will reach more than 1,100 this year, with disproportionately high numbers of fatalities of African Americans and other people of color.Corey Jones’ horrific death has evoked national outrage.  It has once again put the spotlight on the racist, violent police —  and on the inherently bigoted and brutal criminal justice system, which itself must be challenged.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reporter arrested in Ferguson: “I was just doing my job”

first_img Follow the news on United States Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says News News United StatesAmericas Gerald Trey Yingst, a journalist with the News2Share website, was arrested in Ferguson, Missouri, while covering a demonstration on 22 November during the wait for the grand jury decision not to indict a white policeman who gunned down an unarmed African-American teenager.Reporters Without Borders condemns his arrest and interviews him below.The police said Yingst failed to respect an order to disperse. Yingst and witnesses deny this, and video footage shows they are right. Denise Reese, a journalist with RT’s Ruptly video agency, was also arrested for doing her job on 26 November.In August, Reporters Without Borders condemned the arbitrary arrests of 15 journalists during the demonstrations in Ferguson that immediately followed Michael Brown’s death. President Obama said at the time: “Police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their job.”Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk, said: “The police must let journalists do their work of gathering information and cover the rioting for the public. We urge the US authorities to not leave police abuses unpunished and to do everything possible to guarantee the safety of journalists during protests.”Extracts from the interview with Yingst:I was standing on the sidewalk when I saw a police officer coming towards me, yelling at people in the street. I thought I was doing the right thing as I was on the sidewalk but apparently I was supposed to be on the other sidewalk. It was very unclear. Then I was arrested and taken to jail. It did not make a lot of sense. They took me to jail for four hours. I had never been to jail before. I was booked, got a mugshot. Originally I was charged with ‘failure to disperse’ and then with ‘unlawful assembly.’ It was very unclear why. A protester who was also charged with ‘unlawful assembly’ had hit a police cruiser earlier in the night.The police were very inaccurate on how they reported what happened but thankfully there was a video to prove that I was on the sidewalk the whole time (…) and not on the street. I was wearing my media credentials and had a camera. That in my mind was an appropriate ID for a journalist.I was there in August and I was aware that other journalists had been arrested then but I never thought it would happen to me. It did not cross my mind that I was making a statement: I was just doing my job.Even though I was arrested for doing my job, I am going to continue to cover Ferguson because it is important to me. I hope my arrest can be used as an example of things that are not right. I hope the police recognize that and do not arrest journalists in the future for doing their job.The United States is ranked 46th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, 13 places lower than in the 2013 index. to go further RSF_en Receive email alerts United StatesAmericas June 3, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Organisation NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say June 7, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information November 26, 2014 – Updated on June 8, 2016 Reporter arrested in Ferguson: “I was just doing my job” News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Facebook ends “Explore Feed” experiment

first_img Officially, the purpose of this change was to let Facebook users see more content from friends and family in the News Feed. But the experiment, which began last October, had a devastating impact on independent media in the six countries concerned. Facebook announced the end of the experiment on 1 March.“We welcome this decision because the ‘Explore Feed’ dealt a severe blow to the vitality of independent journalism,” said Elodie Vialle, the head of RSF’s Journalism and Technology Bureau. “Many independent media manage to survive thanks to the readers they get through Facebook and they lost much of this readership because of this ‘experiment.’ Facebook must stop playing sorcerer’s apprentice and should instead consult civil society and the media before making changes with often dramatic consequences.”RSF criticized the Explore Feed when it was introduced in the six trial countries: Sri Lanka, Slovakia, Bolivia, Serbia, Guatemala and Cambodia. In Cambodia, which is ranked 132nd out of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index, 40% of the population gets its news via Facebook. When Facebook began the Explore Feed trial in Cambodia, the Khmer-language Facebook page of the Phnom Penh Post, the country’s last independent daily, lost almost 45% of its readers in the space of a few days. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) hails Mark Zuckerberg’s decision to terminate the “Explore Feed” function that Facebook had been testing in six countries for the past five months, in which content from independent news media was removed from its main News Feed and was relegated to a much less prominent location called the “Explore Feed.” News Freedom of expressionInternet Freedom of expressionInternet Help by sharing this information RSF_en Organisation March 9, 2018 Facebook ends “Explore Feed” experimentlast_img read more

A Taste of Broadway in New Ocean City After-School Program

first_imgOcean City Theatre Company Artistic Director Michael Hartman leads Ocean City Intermediate School fifth-graders through the opening number of “Kiss Me, Kate” in a new after-school drama club. A ragtag group of fifth-graders lines up on the stage at the Ocean City Intermediate School.Then the mostly unlikely of things starts to happen. With some highly technical instruction — “Your right foot is pretty chill” and “Your line moves a little bit like a Tetris block” …  and arm positions pointing to the map coordinates of “Philly, Boston and BaltimiMO’ ” — the group moves through the choreography of the opening number of Cole Porter’s Broadway musical “Kiss Me, Kate.”And it doesn’t look half bad — even on just the second day of practice. The simple instructions and visual cues are clearly working.The after-school activity is part of a new drama class sponsored with financial support from the Sea Isle City Board of Education and taught by members of the Ocean City Theatre Company, including Artistic Director Michael Hartman.The free extracurricular activity exposes students to theater games, musical theater, improvisational activities, basic stage directions, creative writing, imagination activities, skits, readers’ theater and more. The week-long sessions end with informal showcases for families and friends.The first session ran last week for fifth-graders in the Ocean City School District. Three more session are as follows:Session Two — 3rd Grade: January 12 – 16, 2015; 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. with the informal showcase on Jan. 16, 2015, 4:30 to 5 p.m.Session Three — 4th Grade: February 23 – 27, 2015; 2:30 to  3:30 p.m. with the informal showcase on Feb. 27, 2015, 3:30– 4 p.m.Session Four —2nd Grade: March 16-20, 2015; 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. with the informal showcase on March 20, 2015, 4:30 to 5 p.m.This program is designed for students with no experience in theater or for children who already have a passion for the stage, according to Hartman.Students interested in participating can sign up in their school’s main office.
