However, undervalued shares could prove to be a buying opportunity for long-term investors. In many cases, high-quality companies with solid financial positions and competitive advantages over their peers are trading at low prices due to weak investor sentiment towards the wider stock market. Therefore, they may be significantly undervalued. That’s simply because investors are more risk averse than they were earlier this yearIn the long run, history suggests that stock market valuations will recover from their recent declines. They have previously moved towards their averages as the economic outlook and investor sentiment have improved following bear markets such as the global financial crisis. Investors who are able to look beyond short-term risks such as Brexit and coronavirus may be able to obtain impressive capital returns as the stock market recovers.Purchasing Bitcoin following its recent gainAs mentioned, Bitcoin has significantly outperformed UK shares in 2020. However, after its near-50% rise, investors have no way of determining if the virtual currency offers good value for money. It has no fundamentals to provide guidance on whether it offers a margin of safety. Therefore, investors must take a view on whether sentiment will improve or deteriorate in future.With Bitcoin facing competition from other currencies, regulatory risks and a limited size, its prospects may be more challenging than its current price suggests. As such, it may fail to continue to rise in the coming years. Furthermore, its past performance has shown that sentiment can change quickly and without clear reason. Therefore, it may prove to be a risky asset to own – especially for investors who are seeking to build a retirement portfolio.Stock market retirement prospectsAlthough UK shares also face risks at the present time, their fundamentals suggest they offer wide margins of safety in many cases. Furthermore, indexes such as the FTSE 100 have a long track record of delivering annual total returns that are in the high-single digits.This means that investors with a long time horizon can obtain a relatively resilient growth rate. Over time, this could realistically improve their financial outlook and even increase their chances of retiring early. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

This project was born from a competition launched in 2007 by the developer Bremond in partnership with ING Real Estate, for the creation of an exemplary district on the Ile Saint-Denis. We won this competition in partnership with the Dutch urban planners West 8 and some other architectural firms. The private developer had subsequently sold the development of the ZAC to a public developer, Plaine Commune.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!First floor planThe urban project was cancelled, but it gave way a few years later to a project management mission. It was offered in collaboration with ECDM and Thibaud Babled architects, who were already in the first competition.The operation is in the future eco fluvial area of the island-Saint-Denis, in the location of the former warehouses. The site is a developing district with the Creation Cluster. The PA3 lots, PA4 and PA5 forms the first “island PA” of the “ZAC Bi-Sites / Printemps”. The developer of the ZAC is Plaine Commune Habitat, and the actual planner is Philippon-Kalt urban architects.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe “islet PA” has a special position on the banks of the Seine and close to the future “Place des Commerces”, structuring the new district. The site is bounded by the Quai du Chatelier, main axis of the island along the largest arm of the Seine, the Place des Commerces close to Marques Avenue, and the “Allée des Arts” a pedestrian street. The lot PA3 designed by our agency, will be connected to Marques Avenue and will mark the southern entrance of the eco neighborhood.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe building has 8 superstructure levels (R + 7 and mezzanine) with some duplex accessible from the 7th level, and no infrastructure level. On the ground floor, two private courtyards traverses the island, to provide visual and functional permeability between the dock and the Allée des Arts. Arranged on the streets, docks and inside the courtyards, workshops and retails are wide open to the public space. The repeating pattern of wood joinery and large windows mark the unity of the ground floor.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!Facade DiagramAt the center of the plot, a patio complete outdoor spaces. The patio will bring a green atmosphere in the heart of the island, and will be complemented by planted rooftops of the workshops (workshop in the case of PA3). The open ground areas represents: 14% of the area of the plot, which is 223m². They will be vegetated by lawns, ground covers (grasses, flowers), shrub hedges. These planted areas will respect the PLU and the specifications of the urban planner.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaIn the levels, the uniqueness of each lot is even more expressed by the materials diversity, even if they match together through the use of wood. In order to break the linearity of the facades, the building volume is cut along rhythms based on the alternation between faults and balconies. The facade design was guided by the desire to provide to all housing units a double orientation, panoramic views of the Seine, and true outdoor spaces while respecting the strong programmatic density. The diversity of the set is labeled at the roof by multiple height variations of the R + 4 and R + 7.Offering a variety ranging from T1 to T5, accommodations are organized in L around the patio and passages, and they all have views over the Seine. The thin volume offers a high porosity as well as housing through with Southeast oriented stays. While the rooms are oriented towards the quiet heart of the plot. The design of wide sinusoidal balconies, offset from one level to another ensures good sunlight and creates a subtle play on volumes and front undulations. The project will answer to the certification Habitat & Environment Profile A.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaProject gallerySee allShow lessClifton Cathedral / PurcellSelected ProjectsUrban Services Center / José Luis López Siles + Francisco Moreno MartínezSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Quai du Châtelier, 93450 L’Île-Saint-Denis, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives January 13, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Venezuela June 15, 2020 Find out more News Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets Receive email alerts Organisation VenezuelaAmericas News News Reporters Without Borders today called for international condemnation of President Hugo Chávez’s decision not to renew the licence of Venezuela’s oldest TV station, Radio Caracas Television (RCTV), which was finally forced to stop broadcasting at midnight last night.“The closure of RCTV, which was founded in 1953, is a serious violation of freedom of expression and a major setback to democracy and pluralism,” the press freedom organisation said. “President Chávez has silenced Venezuela’s most popular TV station and the only national station to criticise him, and he has violated all legal norms by seizing RCTV’s broadcast equipment for the new public TV station that is replacing it.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “The grounds given for not renewing RCTV’s licence, including its support, along with other media, for the April 2002 coup attempt, are just pretexts. Other privately-owned TV stations that supported the coup attempt have not suffered the same fate because they subsequently adopted a subservient attitude towards the regime.”Directly or indirectly, President Chávez now controls almost all the broadcast media. RCTV’s closures is not, as he would have people believe, a mere administrative measure. It is a political move designed to reinforce his hegemony over the news media.This attack on media pluralism is just the latest in a long series of press freedom violations in Venezuela that have included attacks on hundreds of journalists in recent years, a “media social responsibility” law that restricts their programming, criminal code amendments increasing the penalties for press offences, publication of a list of journalists who allegedly “sold out to US interests,” and verbal threats by Chávez against foreign journalists.“We appeal to the international community to actively condemn this use of force and to defend what remains of the independent media in Venezuela,” Reporters Without Borders added.The threat to RCTV surfaced just eight days after Chávez’s reelection as president, when communication and information minister William Lara announced on 11 December 2006 that the renewal of its licence would be put to a referendum. President Chávez’s decision to terminate its licence without bothering with a referendum was announced 17 days later.The Venezuelan supreme court put an end to all further discussion when it ruled on 18 May that the appeal presented by RCTV on 9 February was “inadmissible.” RSF_en

Abundant short‒period, small‒scale gravity waves have been identified in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere over Halley, Antarctica, via ground‒based airglow image data. Although many are observed as freely propagating at the heights of the airglow layers, new results under modeled conditions reveal that a significant fraction of these waves may be subject to reflections at altitudes above and below. The waves may at times be trapped within broad thermal ducts, spanning from the tropopause or stratopause to the base of the thermosphere (∼140 km), which may facilitate long‒range propagation (∼1000s of km) under favorable wind conditions.

Churchill Crew Displays MIO Tactics with Montenegrin Military View post tag: Tactics View post tag: MIO Training & Education Visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) team members of guided-missile destroyer USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81) displayed maritime interdiction tactics with the Montenegrin military during a coalition training exercise July 9.The VBSS team and the maritime squadron of Montenegro’s special forces each performed a simulated maritime interdiction operation (MIO) in order to compare strategies and further cooperation between the two allied militaries.“Every military has different ways of solving problems. To observe a diversity of well-trained boarding teams interjects new ideas and keeps what you’re doing fresh,” said Lt. j.g. Edward R. Kellum, lead boarding officer of the Churchill team. “To see what the Montenegrin Navy is capable of and analyze the differences only adds another layer of competency to my team’s ability to perform their mission.”In each event, VBSS teams boarded vessels belonging to their respective countries, the Churchill for the U.S. Sailors and a salvage tug for the Montenegrin special forces. Both teams executed boarding techniques to include crew members and sweeping the ship for contraband. Military leaders from Montenegro observed both sets of boardings.“This was an excellent opportunity for us to see and compare our levels of tactics and equipment,” said Montenegro navy Cmdr. Darko Vukovic, deputy chief of naval operations for Montenegro.While the Montenegrin navy does not have VBSS teams, they utilize the maritime squadron special forces personnel to perform anti-piracy operations and combat smuggling and terrorism.“It’s a good feeling to get a direct comparison with a special forces squadron,” said Gunner’s Mate 3rd Class (SW) Devon Dusseault, a Churchill VBSS team member. “It’s great to see what they’re capable of and integrate those tactics into our own.The Montenegrin navy consists of 341 personnel, according Vukovic. He said he believes close training like this will pay even great dividends for Montenegro in the future.Winston S. Churchill is on a regularly scheduled deployment in support of Maritime Security Operations (MSO) and theater Security Cooperation (TSC) efforts in the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility.

Back to overview,Home naval-today USS John C. Stennis Leaves Dry Dock The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) departed the dry dock at Puget Sound Naval Shipyards (PSNS) and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (IMF), April 25. Industry news View post tag: Dock USS John C. Stennis Leaves Dry Dock View post tag: USS View post tag: Navy View post tag: C. View post tag: Naval View post tag: Dry The event marked the conclusion of the nine-month dry dock portion of Stennis’ Docking Planned Incremental Availability (DPIA) maintenance period.“This milestone is a big win, not just for the Stennis and PSNS and IMF team, but also for the Navy,” said Stennis’ Commanding Officer, Capt. Michael Wettlaufer. “I am exceptionally proud of our team’s accomplishments in achieving this major milestone early and keeping Stennis on track to return to the fleet as scheduled.”To date, Stennis, PSNS and IMF personnel completed more than 11,000 critical repair jobs including the restoration of Stennis’ multi-ton propellers, shafts and rudders, as well as refurbishing all four aircraft catapults.Stennis also began installing the Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise Services communications platform and is in the process of upgrading the ship’s Phalanx Close-in Weapons Systems to the Block 1B baseline 2 variant, designed to improve the ship’s defense against close-range threats, including surface and air targets.“A tremendous amount of work has been accomplished by the entire project team,” said PSNS and IMF employee John Simpson, Stennis’ project engineer planning manager, from Spokane, Wash. “It took teamwork by the ship, shipyard and alteration-installation teams working to make this event happen.”Millions of gallons of water entered the dry dock Aug. 23 as Stennis, PSNS and IMF personnel conducted safety and water integrity inspections throughout the ship. Once the dry dock was fully flooded, the caisson, a barrier separating the dry dock from the bay, was removed and Stennis, with the assistance of several tugboats, was safely transited to an adjacent pier where the ship will continue its DPIA.“Flooding and exiting the dry dock takes a large orchestrated effort between the ship’s crew, docking officers and other support personnel,” said PSNS and IMF’s engineering duty officer, Lt. Rebecca Wright, from Colorado Springs, Colorado.Stennis is scheduled to complete its DPIA after conducting sea trials in the fall.[mappress]Press Release, April 28, 2014; Image: Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Stennis View post tag: Leaves April 28, 2014 View post tag: John Share this article
Channel 44 News: State Lawmaker Looks To Ease Voter AccessibilityOCTOBER 20TH, 2017 JEFF GOLDBERG EVANSVILLE, INDIANA The interim study committee on elections approved their final report on Wednesday. Lawmakers made their final recommendation: look into clearing the voter rolls.One lawmaker is now speaking out about the matter. Democrat Ryan Hatfield serves on the committee, but he feels like the committee didn’t go far enough. One thing left off of the final report was easing absentee voting laws. As it stands right now, Hatfield says Indiana is one of the few states that still requires an excuse when mailing in an absentee ballot.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
