The TUI (LSE: TUI) share price looks to be one of the top cheap UK shares after its recent declines. At the time of writing, the stock is trading at around 350p. That’s significantly below its five-year high of 1,180p, printed in May 2018. Unfortunately, the share price only tells us part of the story. 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…The falling TUI share priceThe value of the company has fallen as its revenues have collapsed. Revenues were €486m (£426m) in the three months to December, down from €3.9bn a year earlier, as coronavirus lockdowns and travel restrictions took their toll. The good news is that the company is expecting a recovery in 2021. The operator said it had received 2.8m bookings for summer breaks so far in its latest trading update. That’s an improvement, yes. But it was just more than half of 2019 levels. Even in the most optimistic scenario, City analysts do not expect the company to return to profit until 2022. Of course, this is just a projection.The company could perform better or worse than expected. Unfortunately, until we have some more certainty on how the vaccine rollout is affecting coronavirus infections around the world, it’s impossible to tell what the future holds for the business and the TUI share price at this stage. This is why I’d ignore the stock any buy other cheap UK shares instead. UK shares on offer There are a handful of other stocks I’d rather buy for my portfolio right now. These are mainly recovery plays, like the TUI share price. However, I think these businesses have a brighter outlook because they depend less on the international travel market and more on UK consumer trends. For example, shares in banking giant Barclays look incredibly cheap right now. Investors have been selling the stock due to concerns about its exposure to the UK economy.Nevertheless, so far, the impact on the business has been relatively limited. This might not continue indefinitely. If the economy takes a turn for the worst, Barclays could see a sudden increase in loan losses and drop-in profitability. However, management’s recent decision to initiate a £700m share buyback and reinstate the dividend gives me confidence that the lender is getting back on track. That’s why I would buy the company as part of a diversified basket of cheap UK shares over the TUI share price today. Another group I have my eye on is telecommunications giant BT. Demand for this company’s services has only increased over the past year as working from home has become the standard.But this hasn’t stopped investors from deserting the business. The decision to cut its dividend significantly impacted investor sentiment towards the enterprise. I think the stock has been oversold. BT has performed better than many of its FTSE 100 peers through the crisis. That’s why, despite the challenges facing the business, such as its high level of debt and rising costs, I would buy the stock as part of a portfolio of UK shares today. The firm is not without its challenges, but unlike TUI, the challenges facing this business are not life or death. After all, the travel operator has already been bailed out three times during the past year. last_img read more

ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service — Auckland, New Zealand] Using the image of the stained-glass windows that soar above the clear-glass doors of Holy Trinity Cathedral here and surround the members of the Anglican Consultative Council, Anglican Communion General Secretary Kenneth Kearon called on the ACC Oct. 29 (local time) to look outward as well as inward during the remaining 10 days of the council’s meeting.“To meet in a place such as this can never be an ivory tower experience – we see God’s world outside, no matter which direction we turn,” Kearon said. “This building itself is a parable of the wondrous God sheltering, protecting, yet drawing us continually into conversation with the world God has created and which Jesus died to save.”Kearon reviewed the work facing the members as they got down to business after two days of continual welcome from the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. This 15th meeting of the ACC began Oct. 27 and continues until Nov. 7.The members are seated at round tables at the front of the cathedral nave while a head table and teleprompter have replaced the altar. Diocese of Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga chairs the ACC and Elizabeth Paver, lay representative for the Church of England, is vice chair. Kearon is the secretary to ACC meetings. Those three are at the head table and Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the president of the council, has taken a seat at one of the round tables.The work ahead of the council includes reviewing the activities of the Anglican Communion Office staff and the communion’s official networks that help coordinate the communion’s work of mission and social justice, the communion’s interfaith and ecumenical dialogue efforts, as well as theological education, the evolution of the instruments of communion and the status of the Anglican Covenant.Continuing with the image of the stained-glass windows above the council, Kearon suggested that just as the cathedral artists could not produce just one window to portray adequately everyone’s experience of God, the members have brought with them their own experiences and perceptions of God. “It’s only when each of us contributes our own piece of color, our own perception of God, that the full glory of God may be seen,” he said.“Each of us will, I hope, bring our best to this meeting, but what each of us brings will at best represent an incomplete apprehension of the gospel of God; the fullness of our faith will only be expressed when together with our fellow Christians we seek ‘to give an account of the hope that is in us,’” he said, adding that answering the call to give that account can never be undertaken alone.Kearon cautioned that often in reaction to such individual experiences “we bandy about too many labels in the church today – orthodox, biblical, conservative, catholic, evangelical, and every combination of them, and if you haven’t been labeled yourself, there’ll always be someone out there who is prepared to give you a label.”Descriptive labels become destructive when they are used to define oneself over and against others, the general secretary said. He went on to note that “there are far too many unreflective fundamentalisms around our communion today – conservative fundamentalism, liberal fundamentalism, catholic fundamentalism – all characterized by a certainty in their own righteousness, coupled with an intolerance of the faith perspective of others with whom they differ.”Anglicanism at its best, he said, “speaks against such narrowing of our image of God” and instead “reaches out to those with whom we differ” knowing that a “deeper and far richer understanding of God” can only come during encounters with people who are not like-minded.By the meeting’s end on Nov. 7, Kearon said, he hoped the members will have found “a way of being together which is truly relational, truly accepting of our sisters and brothers in Christ whose faith we need in order to enhance our own.”“We each bring our own piece of stained glass and add it to the window alongside that of others’, and so reveal the fullness of the glory of God in our broken and hurting world.”During the remainder of the morning plenary session, the council heard about the work of the Anglican Centre in Rome and the Compass Rose Society.The members split into self-selected groups during the afternoon to learn more about the work of the communion’s networks. That work will continue during the morning of Oct. 30, when they will also spend time learning about the Anglican Alliance, a relief, development and advocacy group begun at the ACC’s request during its last meeting in Jamaica in 2009.The council is also due to consider resolutions from the networks Oct. 30.ACC backgroundThe ACC is one of the four instruments of communion, the others being the archbishop of Canterbury (who serves as president of the ACC), the Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops, and the Primates Meeting.Formed in 1969, the ACC includes clergy and lay people, as well as bishops, among its delegates. The membership includes from one to three persons from each of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, depending on the numerical size of each province. Where there are three members, there is a bishop, a priest and a lay person. Where fewer members are appointed, preference is given to lay membership. The ACC’s constitution is here.The council meets every three years or four years and the Auckland meeting is the council’s 15th since it was created.The Episcopal Church is represented by Josephine Hicks of North Carolina; the Rev. Gay Jennings of Ohio; and Bishop Ian Douglas of Connecticut.Jefferts Schori is attending the meeting in her role as a member of the Anglican Communion Standing Committee, which met here prior to the start of the ACC meeting. Douglas is also a member of the Standing Committee.A complete list of the ACC15 participants is here.All ENS coverage of ACC15 is here.– The Rev.

This house along the Leuvense Vaart in Mechelen never ceases to fascinate. A seemingly random play of asymmetrical concrete canopies opens and closes the façade, creating a pleasing impression of introverted openness.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinA house with a consistent story. The dynamics created by the angled concrete canopies and the sophisticated positioning of the triangular storeys were an aesthetic necessity, designed in response to the environment in which the house was built. In this case, a narrow, deep plot with close proximity to neighbours, but also with an expansive view of the canal and the fields behind it. The concept of the house is the result of a creative process that takes all these parameters into account in a single, consistent story.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinIntriguing contrasts. Each storey is set back in relation to the previous one and has been superimposed at a slightly shifted angle, with the intention of creating privacy and a sense of security for the residents. This fan-like movement inward also creates a playful effect that counters the monolithic appearance of the nine-metre-high building. At the same time, the fan shape is intended to cast an as little shadow as possible on the neighbours. The breaches in the concrete walls in turn create exciting openings to the garden and the water. While the concrete construction is no less imposing than the ships that slowly pass by on the canal, the openings give the whole a human scale.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinSave this picture!Detail sectionSave this picture!© Filip DujardinWarm welcome. The concrete from which the house is built also forms the supporting structure. This made it possible for the opening movement of the facades to be continued in the interior.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe lowest concrete wedge serves as a carport and hides the entrance of the house from the view of passers-by. However, anyone who rings the bell will instantly feel welcome thanks to the large, pivoting door and the inviting concrete entrance step. The stairs, together with a cloakroom and laundry room, are located in the concrete core of the house and lead to the living areas that nestle around the central part on the first floor in a single, flowing movement. The kitchen is bathed in the morning sun, while the living room with an adjoining terrace catches the last rays of the sun. The bedrooms in the top storey are primarily functional and all open onto a beautiful terrace.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinSave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!© Filip DujardinSheltered and open at the same time. The furniture in the house was custom designed, including the storage units and fireplace wall. The special symbiosis between secure enclosure and openness also comes into its own in the interior. A feeling that is enhanced by a balanced use of understated materials, alternating the warm texture of clay plaster on walls and ceilings with the raw concrete and wooden finishing that are also used in the external facades.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinSave this picture!© Filip DujardinThe tranquil material palette of the house has been carried over into the smallest details. For the balustrades, we deliberately did not work with modern glass, but with galvanized steel. This aligns the enclosure and the breaches in the facade with the human scale of the residents, in an otherwise imposing building. The steel of the balustrades is reflected in the external staircase and gate, which were specially designed for this house. A nice detail is that in this gate, just like in the facade of the house, recesses have been applied that makes the wheels of the gate visible and give it a surprising touch.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe concept for this house evolved during the creative process into a story that in a single gesture meets all parameters of the residents and the environment, so that it fits seamlessly into its context.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinProject gallerySee allShow lessMore Highways, More Problems: Planning the Future of Major Road SystemsArticlesPritzker Prize 2021 Winner To Be Announced Tuesday, March 16thArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Filip Dujardin+ 30Curated by Paula Pintos Sharelast_img read more

Thailand

first_img Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar The Internet is supervised by the National Information Technology Committee (NITC), the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), the Telephone Organisation of Thailand (TOT) and the Communications Authority of Thailand (CAT). The rise of such bodies has hindered Internet growth more than encouraged it. The CAT by law has a minimum 32 per cent share in all privately-owned ISPs. The media, most of which have websites, do not complain about censorship, even though relations between the independent media and populist prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra are tense. But the NITC said in July 2001 it would hunt down “unsuitable content” on the Internet. It ordered ISPs to retain connection data about their customers for at least three months, so that undesirable websites could be spotted and blocked and those who logged on to them could be prosecuted. The police and technical and legal experts work closely with the NITC to monitor cybercafés as well as the Internet to identify target sites. Information and communication technology minister Surapong Suebwonglee said on 19 December he had asked the country’s Internet operators, including a score of ISPs, to block access to “obscene” or “subversive” websites. The daily paper The Nation said he had defined “subversive” as endangering national security and the monarchy. The minister said he wanted the Internet in Thailand to be “a pleasant place.” Thailand Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en August 21, 2020 Find out more News News ThailandAsia – Pacific News ThailandAsia – Pacific center_img Receive email alerts June 18, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Links:The Communications Authority of Thailand The Nation media group News Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years to go further May 12, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Thailand Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom June 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

County Voters Residents would get ballots in time for November General Election By CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Friday, March 6, 2020 | 1:00 am Business News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy More Cool Stuff Make a comment Reacting to the hours-long waits that occurred at some voting centers during the primary election, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla called on Los Angeles County Thursday to automatically send vote-by- mail ballots to every voter in the county ahead of the November general election.“Fifteen counties, including Los Angeles County, conducted their elections under the Voters Choice Act,” Padilla said in a statement. “In the 14 other Voters Choice Act counties, every voter received their ballot by mail 29 days in advance of the election and had multiple options for returning their ballot. Los Angeles must do the same.“I am calling on Los Angeles County to mail every registered voter a ballot for the November 3, 2020, general election in addition to improving the performance of vote centers,” he said. “This would be a first, but important, step in better meeting the needs of the largest, most diverse voting jurisdiction in the nation.”Thousands of voters during Tuesday’s election were greeted with long lines at various vote centers across Los Angeles County. Some voters in Pasadena were still waiting in line past midnight, more than four hours after the polls had technically closed.State law requires that people be allowed to vote if they were in line prior to the polls closing.The county’s election was the first under the new system, in which about 1,000 vote centers were placed around the county and were open for 11 days, allowing voters to cast their ballots at any time at any location. The old system had roughly 4,500 precinct locations open only on Election Day.In Pasadena voters were met with locked doors this past weekend at one early voting center. On Election Day there were problems with voting machines at City Hall.County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan attributed Tuesday’s problem on a variety of factors, most notably an over-estimation of how many voters would take advantage of the early voting opportunities. Only about 250,000 voters did so, meaning the vast majority of them flocked to the more limited number of vote centers on Election Day.Logan also said there were technical issues with the electronic check-in system at the vote centers — used to ensure voters only cast one ballot — creating a bottleneck of people as they arrived. He said once people cleared the check-in system, the touch-screen voting process went smoothly.Padilla said the county needs to re-evaluate the locations of the voting centers. He also said some of the centers were “understaffed and under- equipped,” and some workers were “insufficiently trained.”center_img Subscribe EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Top of the News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena HerbeautyCouples Who Stuck With Each Other Despite The Cheating ScandalHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWeird Types Of Massage Not Everyone Dares To TryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Wear Just Anything If You’re The President’s DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA 74 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Defies All Concept Of AgeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeauty First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website last_img read more

The National Hurricane Center reports that Dorian’s center was some 260 miles east of the northwestern Bahamas and about 450 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida, moving west-northwest at about 12 mph.NOAAWhile Florida may be spared a direct hit, CBS News reports that the hurricane could still bring life-threatening storm surge and winds to coastal communities. The storm is now expected to make landfall over North and South Carolina on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. State of emergencies are in effect for the entire states of Florida and North Carolina, and 12 counties in Georgia.Updated at 12:35 p.m. CDT on August 30Hurricane Dorian has its sights set on the Atlantic Coast of Florida, as new projections show it could make landfall Monday as a category 4 storm. CoreLogic is also reporting that 668,052 single-family homes could be impacted along the eastern coast of the state, with a reconstruction cost value (RCV) of nearly $144.6 billion. The report, which based predictions on the storm being a category 3 distinction, showed 411,199 homes could be impacted in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach market, with an RCV of $85.55 million. “Hurricane-driven storm surge can cause significant property damage when high winds and low pressure cause water to amass inside the storm, releasing a powerful rush over land when the hurricane moves onshore,” the report states. The state of Florida declared a state of emergency on Thursday as the storm was just more than 200 north of Puerto Rico, sparring the island form a direct hit. CBS News reported Friday that the storm is currently a category 3 hurricane, but expects it to gain strength as it makes its way north. The potential exists for the storm to bring with it 140 mph winds before making landfall, according to CBS News. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis expanded the state of emergency to cover all counties in Florida, and also requested President Donald Trump for a pre-landfall disaster declaration. President Trump cancelled a trip to Poland to focus on the federal response to the storm. As of 11 a.m. EDT Friday, Dorian’s center was more than 600 miles east of West Palm Beach and 480 mile east of the Bahamas. Dorian currently has maximum sustained winds of 110 mph. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reminded homeowners and servicers of their respective assistance options. Freddie Mac reminded mortgage servicers of its disaster relief policies for borrowers as Hurricane Dorian approaches Florida. Freddie Mac’s disaster relief options are available to borrowers whose homes or places of employment are located in presidentially-declared Major Disaster Areas where federal individual-assistance programs are made available to affected individuals and households.In areas where the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has not yet made individual assistance available, mortgage servicers may immediately leverage Freddie Mac’s short-term forbearance programs to provide mortgage relief to their borrowers that have been affected by hurricane damage.
