They could also deliver higher returns as the world economy’s performance improves.Therefore, spending time analysing industry growth prospects, assessing company reports and valuing businesses could be a sound move. It may mean that you purchase the most attractive investment opportunities that can make a major impact on your long-term financial prospects.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…Analysing industry prospects to find the best sharesThe best shares to buy today may not necessarily have the brightest near-term outlooks. For example, they may face a tough set of trading conditions as a result of downbeat consumer sentiment or disruption caused by lockdown measures implemented due to coronavirus.However, they could have improving outlooks over the long run that make them attractive investment opportunities. As such, analysing the long-term prospects for a wide range of sectors may help you to deduce where the best buying opportunities may be located. This may lead you to focus your efforts on a smaller number of industries. Especially those where a mix of short-term uncertainty and long-term growth potential may provide a larger number of attractive stocks to buy today.Using annual reports to assess a company’s prospectsAs well as analysing industries to find the best shares, assessing annual reports and recent company updates could be a shrewd move. They provide detailed information on the financial position of a business. This could be very useful in the current economic climate, since slowing sales growth may mean businesses with solid balance sheets have a higher chance of surviving a difficult set of trading conditions.Furthermore, annual reports provide information regarding a company’s strategy. This may help you to determine whether it has the right plan to adapt to a fast-changing economic environment. Or if its business model is outdated. Through reading management commentary and viewpoints, you can build a picture as to how strong a company’s position may be over the long run. This may have a significant impact on its financial performance and investment gains.Valuing businessesOf course, buying the best shares at the wrong price may not lead to impressive returns for investors. Therefore, it’s important to try to estimate the value of a company prior to purchase. If it’s trading at a higher price than it’s worth, it may be a good idea to look elsewhere. Or wait until it trades at a lower price.Fortunately for new investors, many high-quality companies have not yet recovered from the stock market crash. Therefore, good value stocks are likely to be on offer at the present time. They could have a positive impact on your financial prospects in the coming years.

A fast-changing specific district:The district of Quatre-Chemins is an old suburb in which lives a disadvantaged population and where is concentrated a degraded housing environment. Situated in a difficult urban area, this district is the object of a vast program of urban renovation which wants to reduce the number of unhealthy housing environment. In this context, “Foncière Logement” produces three diffuses operations that propose big rented apartment for rent for employees with good income, favoring the social mixing inside the district.Save this picture!© David BoureauOutside Suburb:The wish to settle in this district a wealthy population must be followed by a specific architectural writing, with a precise, sober and respectful insertion.Save this picture!SectionTo reach that purpose, the facade on street has a contemporary vocabulary proposing different typical themes of historical suburb: the base, the body and the roof.Save this picture!© David BoureauContemporary reinterpretation of the base with use of a white varnished brick, stopped on the right adjacent ledge.

To make it happen the necessary plastic moderation of the road’s side is replaced by a play of complexities so as to dramatize this incongruous place:Save this picture!Floor PlanA play of folds gives a rythm to the various levels of the facade. These folds, by widening or by contracting, create external spaces facing south, for every apartment. This play of volume allows, at the same time, to personalize every apartment. On the left, the base stretches up to the lateral façade and on the right side the body retracts to align itself on the nearby facade. The height line of the building comes to close this theme by articulating three slopes of roof. Furthermore, the use of a covering in larch’s natural wood composed slatted raises the spirit of the garden.Save this picture!© David BoureauOn these slants as well as in the chinks of the slatted covering, the sun hangs on its shadows that sculpture differently the volumes following the slope of its way.Save this picture!© David BoureauThe wooden shutters can be randomly opened by the inhabitants, constantly transforming the composition of the façade. , And when those shutters are closed, they transform the volume into an unusual closed box.Save this picture!© David BoureauEventually, the garden will cover ground and walls borders and the place will become like a vegetable cave opened on the sky, protected from the intensity of the city.Project gallerySee allShow lessFarming Cuba: Urban Agriculture from the Ground UpPublicationsShigeru Ban’s “Kooky” Architecture: Just What the World Needs?MiscProject locationAddress:Quatre Chemins, 31360 Mancioux, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Visitors break Rev. Pinkney’s isolation

first_imgFrom Nov. 11-14, activists from Detroit and Ann Arbor, Mich., drove hundreds of miles to Benton Harbor, Mich., to pick up Dorothy Pinkney, spouse of political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney. They then headed north another 500 miles to Marquette Branch Prison.Marcina Cole and Dorothy Pinkney at Marquette City Hall during a break while visiting political prisoner Rev. Edward Pinkney.WW photo: David SoleThe round trip, a total of over 1,400 miles, finally broke the isolation prison officials had imposed on Rev. Pinkney when, starting Oct. 23, they denied him all telephone access. Rev. Pinkney had been punitively transferred to the far north of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula from a prison close to his spouse, attorney and supporters. They visited Rev. Pinkney on both Nov. 12 and Nov. 13.Rev. Pinkney is serving a 2 ½- to 10-year sentence for allegedly altering five dates on a petition in 2014 seeking to recall then Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower. Although there was absolutely no evidence linking the reverend to the changes, the all-white jury was told by the prosecutor and judge that they could convict him “with no evidence” and assume that he was to blame because he led the recall campaign. He began serving his sentence last December.In a letter sent from Marquette Prison and posted on the bhbanco.org website — BANCO is the Black Autonomous Network Community Organization, a group Rev. Pinkney heads — he wrote: “I was transferred to Marquette Prison, shackled, mistreated and intimidated. I was forced to strip on five different occasions. I am forced into overcrowding, inadequate exercise, lack of clean clothing and inadequate medical care. I believe that [prison authorities] have put a hit on me, inside the prison system. I believe they are trying to force me to die in prison. If I do not survive this, you will know the reason why.” Rev. Pinkney turned 67 last month.Efforts to recall Mayor Hightower were thwarted by the courts and the prosecution of Rev. Pinkney. However, Hightower was ousted by Benton Harbor voters this Nov. 3 in the regular election. City Commissioner Marcus Muhammad, sweeping the election 666 to 444, will take office on Jan. 1.The Final Call newspaper, writing about Commissioner Muhammad’s election, noted that “a major community leader, Rev. Edward Pinkney, was jailed after what many residents believe was a politically motivated arrest and trial. … Mr. Pinkney led the mobilization for the recall election and was a strong supporter of Mr. Muhammad. Rev. Pinkney challenged the awesome power of giants like the Whirlpool Corp., which is based in Benton Harbor, saying the corporation had too much power and received too many benefits while giving Benton Harbor Black residents little.” (Nov. 11)The case of Rev. Pinkney has been gaining the attention of other media in the United States and abroad.Workers World spoke to Marcina Cole from the organization Observers in the Court, who made the trip and visited with Rev. Pinkney. She reported that he seemed more agitated than in previous visits when he was at Lakeland Prison. Guards swarmed all through the visiting area constantly. Cole and Dorothy Pinkney were the only African-American visitors at this remote prison.“I didn’t see even one African-American guard,” said Cole. “Rev. Pinkney estimated that 80 percent of the prisoners are white.” She also noted that Rev. Pinkney’s clothes, which “disappeared in the wash,” have not been replaced. “Rev. Pinkney wants his supporters to demand that Gov. Rick Snyder remove Warden Robert Napel and close down the deteriorating Marquette Branch Prison.”Between visits, the group found Snyder’s Marquette office. They met with a staff member, who politely listened to their complaints and concerns.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Later the same month, when he was about to go abroad again to take part in a conference, he handed in his passport for the addition of blank pages. But instead of being returned to him, the passport was sent to the prosecutor’s office. Receive email alerts The harassment of Boboyev began in January, when he and four other unruly journalists were summoned by the Tashkent prosecutor’s office for questioning about their work for unauthorised media. After the interrogation, Boboyev left for neighbouring Kazakhstan, where he spent several weeks. February 11, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Uzbekistan May 11, 2021 Find out more International press freedom groups including Reporters Without Borders have long condemned the facade of dialogue being maintained between the international community and the Uzbek authorities. It allows the Central Asian country to enjoy an unacceptable degree of leniency on the part of European institutions. The press freedom situation is appalling and there has been no improvement to justify such an accommodating attitude. Boboyev is one of the country’s last outspoken journalists. The authorities have long had him in their sights and have been harassing him since the start of the year, but he has never stopped providing independent coverage of Uzbek society. A supposedly scientific analysis by the UzACI was used to support the prosecution brought against photographer Umida Akhmedova in January in connection with her work showing women and poverty in Uzbekistan. She was accused of slandering and insulting the Uzbek people under articles 139 and 140 of the criminal code, charges that carried a maximum sentence of three years in jail. She was finally amnestied and released after her conviction in February. A total of 11 journalists are currently detained in Uzbekistan: Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders calls for their immediate and unconditional release. News Help by sharing this information RSF_en News News Voice of America correspondent Abdulmalik Boboyev (picture, Ferghana.ru), one of Uzbekistan’s few independent journalists, is facing between five and eight years in prison on four charges that Tashkent prosecutors brought against him on 13 September. Uzbek blogger facing possible 10-year jail term Thereafter, matters gained pace and he began being notified of charges linked to his articles, including charges based on expert evaluation by the mass media monitoring centre of the Uzbek Agency for Communication and Information (UzACI). The way authorities waited for the chance “get” him is particularly outrageous. They have seized on the spurious illegal entry charge as a way to silence him. Only international support from journalists, human rights and free speech groups, governments and international bodies is capable of preventing Boboyev from ending up in prison, where he could be mistreated and tortured. Organisation It was only much later, in May, that he realised that the Uzbek border guards had failed to stamp his passport on reentry. He was doing a report on Uzbek citizens lining up at the border in order to enter Kazakhstan in search of work, when immigration officers questioned him and pointed out the lack of a reentry stamp in his passport. Before being released, he had to write an explanation of what had happened and pay a fine for taking photos without permission. His mobile phone and audio recorder were seized. Three of the charges relate to his work as a journalist: “defamation” (article 130 of the criminal code), “insult” (article 140) and “preparing and disseminating material constituting a threat to public order and security” (article 244-1). The fourth is a trumped-up charge of “illegal entry into the country” (article 223) that exploits a minor incident. No date has been set for a trial but he can no longer leave the country.

Withdrawal of accreditation and defamation convictions feed climate of mistrust towards press

This is no longer the case for the Qatar-based satellite TV station Al-Jazeera, which was forced to close its Algiers bureau four years ago as a punitive measure.”AFP’s bureau chief and Reuters’ correspondent had their accreditation withdrawn after reporting on terrorist activity. The authorities said AFP “exaggerated” the toll of two bombings at the station in Béni Amrane, a town 50 km east of Algiers, on 10 June. Reuters was accused of reporting a bombing that did not take place. Both news agencies published the interior ministry’s denials.In yesterday’s development, a court in the municipality of Sidi M’hamed, in Algiers province fined Liberté publisher Ali Ouafak, editor Farid Alilat and cartoonist Ali Dilem 20,000 dinars (200 euros) because of a cartoon of former armed forces chief of staff Lt. Gen. Mohamed Lamari that was held to be defamatory. The lawsuit was brought by the defence ministry.Al-Jazeera’s activities in Algeria were “temporarily” suspended by the ministry of culture and communication in June 2004 but, four years later, it has still not been allowed to resume operating.

The 2013-2014 school year saw the number of participating schools increase to eight with 718 students enrolled and 506 earned certification.“One of the greatest contributions we believed FNB could make was to assist area students with fiscal awareness,” Ramage said. “These results testify to the fact that we are getting interested students certified and this allows them to prepare for their financial futures now.”The skills taught in the program are important lessons to learn, Ramage said.“As we face the worst economic crisis in generations, it is more important than ever to arm young people with the skills to navigate an increasingly complex financial system,” he said. “FNB is excited to offer students an innovative educational experience that uses the tools they love – digital learning and gaming – to teach this important topic.”Ramage said it is no longer sufficient to simply explain a checking account to high school upperclassmen. “This is a generation that is responsive to technologies and new approaches to education,” he said. “FNB is proud to sponsor the EverFi program to get these young students off on the right foot.” The eight schools participating in FNB’s EverFi Financial Education program are Pike County, Goshen, Ariton, Zion Chapel, Charles Henderson and Pike Liberal Arts high schools, Banks School and Pike County Elementary.

Roommate, her boyfriend charged in death of missing Atlanta student Alexis Crawford

first_imgAtlanta Police Department(ATLANTA) — Authorities on Saturday charged two people with malice murder in the death of an Atlanta college student who was missing for more than a week before her body was found, police said.Barron Brantley, 21, and Jordyn Jones, also 21, were taken into custody and transported to Fulton County jail, according to Atlanta police.
