Stuart Blair | Monday, 12th October, 2020 | More on: EZJ There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Image source: Getty Images. Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Back in May, with the easyJet (LSE: EZY) share price at around 500p, I wrote an article about how the shares were too cheap to ignore. A few weeks later, with them priced at nearly 900p, I then stated that it was time to sell. Since then, easyJet shares have faced a torrid time, falling over 40% to around 510p. But after its fourth-quarter trading update, is it now time to buy the stock or has it got further to fall?Fourth-quarter trading updateUnsurprisingly, the Q4 update was pretty grim. In fact, the airline made a loss before tax of around £300m, in comparison to a profit before tax last year of £528m. Revenues were also 73% lower and the number of passengers who flew with the company fell by 67%. This means that the company is in line for a full-year loss for the first time in its history.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…Even so, nobody can say such a grim trading update was unexpected and the easyJet share price has remained fairly steady since. I also believe that easyJet has managed to weather the storm better than some of its rivals, such as IAG. For example, the company has managed to raise over £2.4bn since the outbreak of Covid-19. This has been from a mixture of debt and equity and it should allow the firm to survive the crisis.There are also negatives with raising such a large amount of money. For example, net debt now stands at £1.1bn, as opposed to £326m last year. Consequently, the broker Morgan Stanley estimates that the company has less than 10 months of sufficient liquidity. This may force it into issuing more shares or selling more assets, which could both have a negative impact on the easyJet share price.What’s next?Unfortunately, the immediate future doesn’t look much brighter. For example, in Q1 of 2021, easyJet expects to fly at 25% of planned capacity. This is due to a number of travel restrictions in the markets that the company operates in. On an industry-wide basis, a full recovery is not expected until at least 2023, pointing to significant pain ahead.On the other hand, easyJet shares could be boosted by the news that early booking levels for summer 2021 are in line with previous years. As a result, a recovery looks possible for the budget airline, provided that it can survive the next few months.Would I buy easyJet shares?Overall, the shares do look extremely cheap. The company has performed well in previous years, and I think it will be able to survive the crisis. But survival doesn’t necessarily mean that the company will be able to thrive. This will be especially difficult in the current environment, and the upcoming winter months look especially hard.As a result, while easyJet shares are a very tempting buy, I’m leaving them on the shelf for now. The short-term future looks especially bleak, and I reckon this could lead to more short-term pain. Such a large amount of risk associated with the shares means that I’d therefore look elsewhere.

Alan Oscroft | Monday, 7th June, 2021 | More on: RDSB Enter Your Email Address Investing in big oil, like Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) and BP, isn’t exactly popular these days. It’s all down to this climate change thing, and the growing desire to move away from hydrocarbons. It shows in the RDSB share price, down more than 45% over the past two years.We’ve seen a small upwards blip in the first week of June, with Shell shares rising 3% in the month so far. That’s pretty much at background noise levels though. So where is the share price likely to go now? Shell gave us a reminder Monday that maybe we shouldn’t write it off just yet.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 company released details of its first-quarter dividend payments in various currencies. In sterling, the payment amounts to 12.26p per share. If we assume we’ll see the same for each of the next three quarters, that would be a total of 49p per share. And that would provide a yield of 3.7%.It’s not the biggest yield in the FTSE 100. But if it proves reliable, I think it could make Shell an attractive long-term buy. And that could mean the RDSB share price is currently too low.New future for dividendsBut is the dividend going to be reliable? Shell is one of those companies that’s been reluctant to meddle with its dividend policy for decades. Just keep it growing slowly and steadily, and ignore the short-term market. That saw Shell through the previous oil price crisis just fine. But the pandemic shock, coupled with escalating political pressure on energy markets, meant that couldn’t hold forever.So Shell has rebased its dividends, setting a new level which the company believes is now sustainable. The dividend cut has resulted in a depressed RDSB share price, but I can’t help wondering if the sell-off has been overdone.Now, I’m no energy industry analyst. And I’ve no hope of quantifying the likely state of the world energy markets over the coming years. So I can’t judge based on my own expertise. But the long-term conservative nature of Shell’s approach to dividends makes me think the company has put a lot of thought into the level it thinks can now be sustained.RDSB share price: will I buy?In short, Shell seems more likely to be able to analyse its own dividend abilities than anyone. Had it been a small oil company, or any other company without such a long and stable history, I’d place little confidence in its dividend proclamations. But I find myself trusting Shell. Well, as far as I’d trust any company.So does the RDSB share price suggests a buy right now? Well, I do have my upbeat feeling about the dividend. But amid the massive uncertainty facing the energy business right now, Shell might just have got it wrong. To answer the question in the title of this piece, I think the Shell share price could easily show a bit more summer optimism and head upwards in June. Yet against the background of negativity, I’m not going to buy now. But I’ll keep watching.

PivotText description provided by the architects. At the foot of the Sciliar, in the picturesque area of Alpe di Siusi (Bolzano), the spirit of a barn is reborn as a home. The project, realised by noa* (network of architecture), has at its core, the South Tyrolean tradition combined with surprising features internally, resulting from the design of visionary and unexpected spaces. An almost magical ambiance is created, inspired by childhood memories. Keep tradition in mind, but at the same time move away so as to create an original identity, a new way of living, a different structuring of the domestic space, and to search inspiration from a childhood passed in the mountains. This, in summary, was the challenge faced by noa* in the project to construct a new home at Siusi in Sciliar, a construction to take the place of a deserted house in the center of the village, with the original structure dating back to 1850.Save this picture!© Alex FilzSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alex FilzThe job, completed in 2017, needs to be understood in its complex and delicate context. We are talking about South Tyrol, and a project executed at a height of 1100 a.s.l. at the foot of Alpe di Siusi, a part of the Dolomites recognized as a Unesco World Heritage due to its outstanding natural beauty. It was therefore extremely important to respect the parameters of the original structure and the urban planning requirements and regulations of the village. For Stefan Rier, founder, together with Lukas Rungger of the noa* studio, and in this instance ‘his own client’, the project was an opportunity to give a personal footprint to his own property. In this sense there was a move away from the traditional principles of spatial distribution, this being achieved in part by recalling memories of a childhood spent in the mountains.Save this picture!© Alex FilzThe outcome of the project is a dwelling, having two aspects that confront each other in their style. The exterior represents the traditional alpine location, splendidly immersed in the local topography, whilst the interior boasts the visionary impulse, the surprise of a space freed from the general scheme of things, almost permeable, osmotic, and certainly innovative. On the ground floor, there is a common area that spreads out almost in a ‘piazza’ fashion for (habitational)and interactional use: there is a dining table to enjoy with friends, an ample sized kitchen to accommodate more than one cook! The rest of the house develops in a vertical way and instead of the classical room division there are what can be described as ‘hanging boxes’, which are positioned at different heights and interconnected by stairs and walkways – they giving the sensation of walking up a mountain path towards the peak.Save this picture!© Alex FilzSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Alex FilzThe hallways are carefully designed so that, apart from their connecting function, they accommodate other essential areas such as the library and open ‘bathroom’ areas with tubs and showers (only the WC are closed in). The entire structure is conceived in a way that the further one goes up the level of privacy and intimacy is heightened. The highest ‘box’ which features a sauna opens out to the splendid view of the Santner Mountain. The revolutionary distribution of the interior spaces can be noted also from the exterior, and a sort of counterpoint is created with the traditional presentation of the exterior itself. To the north, the two boxes of the bedrooms, finished in bronze, can be seen behind the wooden trellis shell, and as a result, the material contrast is evident, while to the south it is sauna box, which protrudes the glass facade.Save this picture!© Alex FilzProject gallerySee allShow lessYan Bookstore / ikg inc.Selected ProjectsBann Huay San Yaw- Post Disaster School / Vin Varavarn ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Messner House / noa* network of architecture ArchDaily Architects: noa* network of architecture Area Area of this architecture project 2017 Photographs Save this picture!© Alex Filz+ 42Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/925952/messner-house-noa-star-network-of-architecture Clipboard Electrical Consultant: Mutschlechner Erich Landscape: Platter Construction Company: Carpenter: Brida, 39019 Tirol Photographs: Alex Filz Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Bloomingville, Ceramica Globo, Cristina Rubinetterie, Domenico Mori, Electrolux, Geopietra, HK Living, KARMAN, Kare Design, Lichtstudio Eisenkeil, Miele, Ondaplus, Seletti, TipTop Fenster GmbH, Villeroy & Boch, Acor, Bomma, Chuk Palu, Effeitalia, +9Fischnaller, Kometal, LifeStyle, Prima, Ptmd, Tischlerei Rier, VERSMISSEN, Vaia Group, asda-9 CopyAbout this officenoa* network of architectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSeis am SchlernOn FacebookItalyPublished on October 06, 2019Cite: “Messner House / noa* network of architecture” 06 Oct 2019.

Crédit : RTVS1 July 3, 2019 Tshisekedi urged to reopen TV channel shut down last weekend News Organisation Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Media independence Freedom of expression Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma News The signal of Radio Télévision par Satellite (RTVS1) was disconnected during the day on 29 June as it was broadcasting a programme in which guests were calling for participation in a demonstration banned by the authorities. The channel is owned by Adolphe Muzito, one of the leaders of the opposition to Tshisekedi.“This outright act of censorship is a complete contradiction of the new president’s promises to respect press freedom,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Abuses against Congolese journalists and media outlets are down since the start of the year. We urge the new administration not to return to the past by using the censorship methods employed under Joseph Kabila’s regime.”During his inaugural address on 24 January, President Tshisekedi said he wanted to turn the media into a “real fourth estate” and on World Press Freedom Day (3 May), he pledged to turn the media into “one of the key motors of the rule of law.”In a joint letter to Tshisekedi in early May, RSF and JED recommended five concrete measures that he should take to keep these promises. They included an end to arrests of journalists and to arbitrary closures of media outlets, and an overhaul of repressive legislation that criminalizes journalism in the DRC.Ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, the DRC is the sub-Saharan country where RSF registered the most cases of press freedom obstruction in 2018.Read attached the press release of Journalist in Danger, RSF’s partner organization : Receive email alerts Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and its Congolese partner, Journalist in Danger (JED), condemn last weekend’s arbitrary closure of an opposition TV channel in Kinshasa, the first closure of this kind under President Félix Tshisekedi, and urge the new president to refrain from using his predecessor’s censorship methods.

The video was a personal attack on Campo Grande mayoral candidate Alicides Bernal.A judge in the northeaster state of Paraiba ordered the arrest of Google Brazil CEO Emundo Balthazar on 14 September on a similar charge after an online video was deemed to insult another candidate, Romero Rodrigues. Google had requested a review of the ruling in the light of the constitutional guarantees of freedom of expression and thought.The ruling was overturned the next day by the Regional Electoral Court, which referred to the precedent set by the Superior Court of Justice 26 June decision in an appeal (Special Appeal No. 1.316.921 – RJ) by a government minister, Nancy Andrighi.The June ruling said: “When the essential conditions, including URL identification, are satisfied for removing an Internet page that is determined to be illicit or offensive, the plaintiff will have no interest in taking action against the search engine in the absence of a legal basis. If the victim has identified the illicit content’s creator via the URL, there are no grounds for suing the platform that allows access to the content available to the public.”Reporters Without Borders deplores the jailing of technical intermediaries such as Google representatives.”Imposing a jail sentence on a technical intermediary who cannot be held responsible for an insulting video is out of all proportion,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The way the 1965 Electoral Code, which was adopted during the 1965-85 military dictatorship, regulates criticism during an election campaign is completely inappropriate, especially to the Internet, digital content and platforms that host content. “The repressive nature of such a decision encourages technical intermediaries to censor themselves, with the result that Internet users are likely to become more and more reluctant to participate in online election debates.”The United Nations special rapporteur for freedom of opinion and expression, Frank La Rue, said in a June 2011 report: “Holding intermediaries liable for the content disseminated or created by their users severely undermines the enjoyment of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, because it leads to self-protective and over-broad private censorship, often without transparency and the due process of the law.”Brazil was nonetheless regarded by many as a pioneer when it produced a draft civil law for the Internet that became Draft Law No. 2.126/2011. “It is time the Brazilian authorities sent a clear signal by getting legislators to pass this law, which would protect the flow of information online,” Reporters Without Borders added.The justice ministry’s Bureau of Legislative Affairs, Rio de Janeiro’s law school and the Center for Technology and Society of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (CTS/FGV) have meanwhile been working on a proposed “Marco Civil da Internet,” a Charter of Internet Rights, since October 2009.The federal attorney-general’s office (MPF) announced on 24 September that it was studying the proposed Internet law, explaining that it wanted to propose amendments concerning the responsibility of technical intermediaries or to add provisions guaranteeing access to justice.A parliamentary vote on the Internet bill has already been postponed three times since June and is now scheduled for late October, after the municipal elections. Alessandro Molon, a PT-RJ congressional representative and special rapporteur of the committee set up to evaluate the bill, said the delay was due to the absence of many parliamentarians during the run-up to the municipal elections, when certain kinds of criticism of candidates are banned.From July to December 2011, Google received 194 requests from Brazilian government departments for the removal of a total of 554 online items, complying fully or partially with 54 per cent of the requests.During the same period, Google received 1,614 requests for information about users, involving a total of 2,222 user accounts. Google complied fully or partly with 90 per cent of the requests. Internet users concerned about possible changes to the Internet laws have posted a petition online. It was launched during the Olinda Internet Forum after a conference on Internet governance in Brazil.
News June 10, 2021 Find out more In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival News India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media News IndiaAsia – Pacific to go further Receive email alerts The state police force of Tamil Nadu (in south-eastern India) have been attempting-by every possible means-to arrest R. R. Gopal, editor of the Tamil-language Nakkheeran semi-weekly magazine because of his alleged relations with the wanted bandit, Veerappan.Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) has asked the Tamil Nadu state police and government officials to stop harassing Nakkheeran’s editorial staff. The organisation believes that this publication’s executive editor and journalists are being targeted for their coverage of the activities of Veerappan’s gang. “The police are incapable of arresting Veerappan, so they are attacking journalists who have met him. What they are doing is dangerous and reprehensible,” wrote Robert Ménard, Reporters without Borders’ General Secretary, in a letter addressed to Selvi J. Jayalalithaa, Chief Minister of the Tamil Nadu Government.On 22 February 2003, officers of Tamil Nadu’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) interrogated Chinna Kuththoosi, a popular Tamil-language editorial writer, for nearly three hours, in an attempt to learn where R.R. Gopal was hiding. The latter has escaped from the police, who have now issued a warrant for his arrest. No one knows what charges may be pending against the journalist, other than that the government is blaming him for having been in contact with Veerappan. In 2000, at the request of authorities, R. R. Gopal had agreed to meet with gangster Veerappan to negotiate the release of the actor Rajkumar. The police-who have so far been unsuccessful in catching Veerappan and his gang-have since taken at least three of Nakkheeran journalists into custody.
