first_img IT WAS the end of an activist era yesterday for broker Mirabaud Securities and oil and gas firm Regal Petroleum, which parted ways on, shall we say, less than friendly terms.Regal’s terse termination statement to the stock exchange came after Mirabaud questioned the tenure of the company’s chief executive, David Greer. That’s not a procedure which is unheard-of in the City, of course, but sources close to Regal said the company’s beef isn’t with Mirabaud’s feelings towards Greer but in the manner in which it went about expressing them.Mirabaud, for its part, is understood to have sent a letter in early August to Regal chairman Keith Henry, claiming that a significant investor had called for Greer to be replaced with ex-Burren Energy chief Atul Gupta. The broker also claimed to have elicited the support of several other shareholders concerned at the dramatic slide in the firm’s share price.But though sources close to Regal admitted that the share price performance has been less than ideal since a $1m capital raise last year, they said Mirabaud should have approached Henry much earlier and that its hesitation constituted a breach of duty, causing the contractual break.Regal declined to comment, while no one from Mirabaud was yesterday available to talk to City A.M. For now, it seems the firm is happy with its relationship with ongoing broker Bank of America Merrill Lynch, though whether or not the shareholder unrest settles down may turn out to be quite another matter.UNSUNG HEROTullett Prebon boss Terry Smith was a happy man indeed yesterday as a statue was unveiled in Waterloo Place of Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park, the “unsung hero” of the Battle of Britain.Smith has been campaigning for over a year for a permanent statue of Park in central London, to recognise his valiant efforts in defending southern England from the Luftwaffe as commander of 11 Group Fighter Command.“My background in studying history and my love of flying as a private pilot perhaps partly explain why I instigated the campaign,” Smith said. “Park’s central role in the Battle of Britain has not been suitably recognised – until now, that is.”SAFE AS HOUSESA robust defence of the attractiveness of fine wines as an investment play, courtesy of the Fine Wine Investment Fund.The fund – which is up 25 per cent for the year to date – took issue in its monthly update at a recent suggestion that fine wine prices were never likely to exceed residential property prices as no one would ever pay more for a case of vino than they would for a house, no matter what the vintage.Not so, the fund argues. Apparently, on a historical basis (going back to 1988) there is almost no evidence of correlation between the two markets, with fine wine hugely outperforming residential property over the past two decades.“As fine wine prices increase as a fraction of property prices, if the argument was correct then their rate of growth would slow, whereas the opposite is true,” the fund wrote, indignantly. “Nor does it make sense on a qualitative basis. Fine wine is a tightly supplied luxury consumable good purchased for pleasure whereas UK residential property is a large market with very different value drivers, not least of all interest rates, the supply of credit and affordability ratios…”Apparently, the average UK residential property in 1983 was worth 89 cases of Lafite Rothschild 1982, but is now worth a little under five. “We would not bet against them reaching parity in our lifetime,” ventures the fund, bravely.BOOKISH TYPESPing! In zooms an email from law firm Latham & Watkins, which seems disproportionately excited about a new service it’s just launched on its website and on a free iPhone app.The app in question – called the “Book of Jargon” – is an interactive glossary of capital markets and banking slang, the firm informs me, though it’s more an encyclopaedia of serious terms than a collection of humorous examples of cringeworthy “business-speak”.“We had a lot of fun putting together this glossary of Wall Street lingo,” explains Kirk Davenport, co-chairman of the firm’s capital markets practice group. “The Book of Jargon is definitely one of the most useful things we have ever published and the new iPhone app is by far the coolest thing we have ever done…”Someone get that man to a boozy business lunch, and pronto.ACTION MANFinally, a note of congratulations to Hugh-Guy Lorriman, leisure research guru over at Seymour Pierce.Lorriman at the weekend completed a gruelling 140 mile coast-to-coast endurance event, biking, kayaking and running his way from North to South Devon in aid of Trinity Hospice, and all despite recent Achilles tendon and knee injuries.Our action man – so-called because he sometimes wears combats into the office, a little bird tells me – is fundraising at www.justgiving.com/Hugh-Guy-Lorriman, if you want to chuck him some cash.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Top UK shares at bargain valuations are really hard to find these days. For some of the shares that are trending now, I’d wait for another stock market crash to buy. I’m sure that I won’t have to wait long – there’ll be another stock market crash pretty soon. Stock market crashWe have all seen the news about Covid-19 restrictions being put back in place. For example, the UK recently decided to quarantine travellers from Spain, France, and Sweden. Things like this are going on all over the world right now, adding to the uncertainty created by the pandemic. It looks pretty obvious to me that if this continues, the recession will last for ages.    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 as bad as that sounds, it’s not the only problem the world faces right now. One of the largest risks investors have to deal with is the US election. Even more important for UK investors are the Brexit negotiations. Although there is hope that the deal will be agreed next month, there are still plenty of potential stumbling blocks, including fishing rights and competition rules. In other words, there are many reasons for a stock market fall.But what UK shares will be involved? Well, I think some investors will end up trimming their stakes even at the most stable firms to raise cash. The March correction showed the effect of this. Not only did the companies with poor balance sheets fall from grace – the companies with strong finances also plunged in value.But as we know, some companies benefitted from the lockdown. Their shares regained their losses and climbed to new highs. Something similar might actually happen again, I believe. Top UK sharesMy colleague Peter Stephens wrote that the risk/reward ratio isn’t particularly attractive for many FTSE 100 companies. And I agree with him. Some time ago I wrote about overvalued high-tech companies. This particularly seems to be the case with the US stock market. But I consider Ocado (LSE:OCDO) and Just Eat Takeaway (LSE:JET) to be firms with huge profit potential during lockdowns. I think we’ll have even more restrictions due to a second wave of Covid-19. That’s why the food delivery demand will stay high for a while. So, I think Ocado and Just Eat will be the first to benefit.But the current valuations of these shares seems excessive. I don’t just mean how much these two companies’ stocks have surged. I also mean their valuation multipliers (the price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios), earnings, and revenue histories. Neither firm was particularly profitable before the pandemic. But after the stock market crash their shares have surged tremendously. The truth is that their market positions are leading. I believe they will be great buys after another stock market correction.  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.

SITEThe Project is located in Convento (Chone) a rural area in the Ecuadorian coast, in an overwhelming natural environment where the presence of large forest of bamboo, a small creek running in front of the field and two rainforest mountains that surround the plot, became the perfect scenario to be potentiated through the project and generate the required relation between the owners and the landscape.Save this picture!SectionRecommended ProductsFastenersFastmount®Panel Fastener – Very Low ProfileWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensCONDITIONINGSAs many architectural projects, the budget was an important constraint. The project could not cost more than $15,000, it was fundamental the use of local resources: bamboo forest and treatment of the material in situ. The local labor ignored about the construction process with bamboo so the family members were trained in order to collaborate and also applied their empirical knowledge in construction. Another limitation was the distance and time (six hours) between the project and the architect, which demanded practicality and clear language in the construction process.Save this picture!Courtesy of Enrique Mora AlvaradoCONSTRUCTIONThe house used about 900 bamboo tree trunks and 8 “laurel” trees for secondary structure and coating walls, taken from the farm where the project is located. In the process of extracting the material, participated the family and some local workers, which experienced different cutting techniques and also they cured the bamboo. The construction process and structural system is simple in order than can be applied in the future for the people of the town.Save this picture!Floor PlanPROGRAMThe Convento house incorporates traditional elements taken from the constructions of the Ecuadorian coast, to establish a dialogue between vernacular and contemporary architecture. The property is separated from the ground to allow air circulation and in case of flooding not be affected. It is a simple program that consists of 3 bedrooms, social and service area (room + kitchen + room + bathroom) both areas connected through a social space that completely opens to the environment, allowing vegetation to enter and cross the house. In this space are incorporated hammocks, a hanging garden reminiscent of “hera” field and a garden at ground level, to highlight the main entrance.On the back of the house is located the outdoor kitchen, in addition to isolate the smoke produced by cooking activity, maintaining the manabitan housing tradition. In Grandma’s room appears a small terrace allowing visual connection with a bamboo area, adjacent to housing. Finally, a system of windows and folding doors is used which allow various configurations depending on the opening level of privacy, use, time and level of inner – outside relationship that users required, creating a changing and dynamic space.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricProject gallerySee allShow lessUS Architecture Schools Express Interest in Conferring Licensure to GraduatesArchitecture NewsIwan Baan: No FilterArchitecture News Share Year:  ArchDaily Convento House / Enrique Mora Alvarado “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/578654/convento-house-enrique-mora-alvarado Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEnrique Mora AlvaradoOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChoneHousesEcuadorPublished on December 22, 2014Cite: “Convento House / Enrique Mora Alvarado” 22 Dec 2014.

first_imgOvidiu Dugulan/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ERIN SCHUMAKER, IVAN PEREIRA and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 65.2 million people and killed over 1.5 million worldwide, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:Dec 04, 7:31 amCOVID-19 vaccinations will be free of charge in FranceFrench Prime Minister Jean Castex said COVID-19 vaccinations will not be made compulsory but “will be free for all” in the country’s social security system.“Getting a vaccine is also about protecting others. It is a choice of trust, we must be as numerous as possible to get a vaccine,” Castex said at a press conference Thursday evening, while unveiling the country’s vaccination strategy.France will launch a COVID-19 vaccination campaign within weeks, pending regulatory approval by the European Medicines Agency. The program will run throughout 2021, staggered over three categories of people.The first phase is slated to begin in January, with vaccines administered to nursing home residents and staff, representing one million people. A second phase starting in February will see 14 million people inoculated, based on age and medical criteria. The third and final phase, beginning in March, will target the remainder of the population who wish to be vaccinated.Through deals clinched by the European Union, France has secured some 200 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines from several pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology firms that developed them and have applied for temporary authorization. Castex said that’s enough doses to inoculate 100 million people — more than France’s entire population.As of Friday afternoon, France’s health ministry had confirmed a total of 2,257,331 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, including 54,140 deaths.Dec 04, 5:18 amItaly reports nearly 1,000 new deaths in all-time highAn additional 993 deaths from COVID-19 were registered in Italy on Thursday, marking a new all-time high, according to data from the country’s civil protection agency.Italy’s previous single-day record of 969 new fatalities from the disease was set in late March, when the country was the epicenter of the pandemic in Europe.The Italian civil protection agency also reported 23,225 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 31,772 patients currently hospitalized with the disease, including 3,597 in intensive care.Since the start of the pandemic, Italy has confirmed more than 1,664,829 million cases, including at least 58,038 deaths, according to the civil protection agency.The country has the eighth highest case load in the world, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Dec 04, 4:17 amUS has worst day yet with record number of new cases and deathsThere were 217,664 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 2,879 additional deaths from the disease registered in the United States on Thursday, both numbers which shattered the country’s previous daily records, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.It’s the most new cases and deaths the U.S. has recorded in a single day since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s also the 31st straight day that the country has reported over 100,000 newly diagnosed infections, and the third time since the pandemic began that the daily figure has topped 200,000, according to Johns Hopkins data.COVID-19 data may be skewed in the coming days and weeks due to possible lags in reporting over Thanksgiving followed by a potentially very large backlog from the holiday.A total of 14,143,801 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 276,366 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins data. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.Much of the country was under lockdown by the end of March as the first wave of pandemic hit. By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up over the summer.The numbers lingered around 40,000 to 50,000 from mid-August through early October before surging again to record levels, crossing 100,000 for the first time on Nov. 4 and reaching 200,000 for the first time on Nov. 27.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_img Beau Lund January 13, 2021 /Sports News – National Olympic gold medalist swimmer Klete Keller charged for alleged role in Capitol riot Written bycenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGREG WOOD/AFP via Getty ImagesBy ALEXANDRA SVOKOS, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — Olympic gold medalist Klete Keller was charged for his alleged involvement in the attack on the Capitol last week.The swimmer was charged with obstructing law enforcement engaged in official duties, unlawfully entering Capitol grounds and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.It was first speculated that Keller was involved in the riot when people began identifying a man who looked like him in a video taken by Townhall reporter Julio Rosas. The video shows a tall man seemingly wearing a U.S. Olympic Team jacket, and former teammates and coaches identified him as Keller, SwimSwam and The New York Times reported.In the video, which was cited in the complaint against Keller, Capitol Police tussle with rioters in the Rotunda, and Keller was pushed back with the crowd by police shields.The complaint, referencing the Townhall video, notes that “Colorado state records and publicly available information list [Keller’s] height at 6 feet, 6 inches tall, and [the person in the video] appears to be one of the tallest individuals in the video depicting individuals in the Rotunda.”Keller had been employed by Colorado real estate firm Hoff & Leigh, but, the firm said in a statement, he resigned this Tuesday.“Effective immediately, Klete Keller is no longer with Hoff & Leigh. Keller, an independent contractor, resigned from the company today,” the company said. “Hoff & Leigh supports the right of free speech and lawful protest but we cannot condone actions that violate the rule of law. We pride ourselves on our deeply held core values of family, loyalty, community and stewardship. We continue to stand by these values.”In response to the reports of Keller’s participation in the siege, USA Swimming said in a statement, “We respect private individuals’ and groups’ rights to peacefully protest but in no way condone the actions taken by those at the Capitol last week.”Before the charge was made against Keller, U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee CEO Sarah Hirshland sent a letter to Team USA athletes condemning the “rioters” at the Capitol.“At home, and around the world, Team USA athletes are held to a very high standard as they represent our country on the field of play and off,” Hirshland wrote. “What happened in Washington, D.C., was a case where that standard was clearly not met. The people involved attacked the very fabric of the democracy we all proudly represent and, in turn, also let our community down. I urge everyone associated with Team USA to continue to celebrate our diversity of background and beliefs, stand together against hatred and divisiveness, and use our influence to create positive change in our community.”Keller, 38, won medals at the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics. He was on the U.S. relay team along with Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Peter Vanderkaay.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
