A 21% price increase so far on Tuesday now takes it to above 70p, its most expensive in eight weeks. Yet it still provides exceptional value on paper following the recent stock market crash. Right now, it trades on a forward P/E ratio of just 8 times.The world’s second-biggest cinema chain slumped to 10-year troughs during the recent crash. It fell as investors fretted over how it would be able to service its colossal debt mountain as its theatres were shuttered. It stands to reason, then, that news emerging last night that the UK government is planning to step up quarantine easing boosted investor appetite for Cineworld stock today.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…This isn’t the only news hopeful share pickers have latched onto recently. Cinemas have already begun opening again in the US, a territory that generates the lion’s share of Cineworld’s profits (73% to be exact). Theatres have begun flinging open their doors in Georgia and Texas again. Falling infection rates on a nationwide basis are raising hopes more reopenings can be expected before long.Super streamersOne of the big stories of the pandemic has been how streaming services revenues have exploded. It’s no surprise, as banged-up citizens have sought distractions and entertainment wherever they can.It’s also led to many predicting that rising demand for Netflix and the like has put another nail in the coffin of the cinema sector. That theme gained traction after Universal successfully launched Trolls World Tour through video-on-demand in April. It’s racked up more than $100m in sales so far and led to an almighty row with theatre chains, including Cineworld. Not a shock, of course, as the sector fears studios will begin to bypass cinemas altogether.Back from the crashThese are fears I consider to be quite overblown. Streaming services have been around for years and yet box office takings remain strong. In fact, ComScore data shows the global box office enjoyed record takings of $42.5bn in 2019. Don’t underestimate the staying power of the cinema and film studios’ desire to piggyback it.A recent poll by Atom Tickets reveals how Americans are eager to get back into the cinema. When asked how soon they’ll attend when a film they want to watch is released, six out of 10 respondents said they would return within a month. A quarter of those questioned said they’d buy a ticket immediately too.Of course, there remains great uncertainty over cinema openings as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on.  And so the revenues picture for Cineworld — and again its ability to ease the pressure on its balance sheet — remains quite cloudy. But I reckon these fears are baked into the share price.I think the chain is still an exciting share to buy today, thanks to its recent invasion of North America. That’s why I first bought the company for my own stocks portfolio a couple of years ago.last_img read more

Midweek Madness – The old ball in the jersey trick – Pacific Edition

gjyufzeap

first_imgWednesday Jul 9, 2008 Midweek Madness – The old ball in the jersey trick – Pacific Edition When Tonga and Fiji met in their Pacific Nations Cup match at Teufaiva Stadium in Tonga on Saturday, we got to see a pretty funny moment in the 54th minute. ADVERTISEMENTFiji made their way down field through some splendid handling and were close to getting over the whitewash, when the move come to an abrupt halt five meters out.It wasn’t a big Tongan hit or a brilliant driving team tackle that stopped the move, nor was it bad handling by Fiji. What it was though, was the Fijian hooker Sunia Koto’s jersey being ripped off him, tossed away, and the ball going with for the ride.It took a few seconds for the players to realise what happened, but once they did, the ref blew a quick stop to play, which allowed the commentators and viewers to have a good chuckle about it while watching the replay.It’s not the first time we’ve seen the ball up the jersey trick, with big Georgian lock Mamuka Gorgodze recently ripping a players jersey off, ball and all, and setting off downfield before being called back by the ref.Tonga went on to win this Pacific Nations Cup match 27-16, with Epi Taione in particular having a great match. The best moment for me though was definitely when the ball went missing in action for a second or two.  “Stop the game so the ball can get undressed .”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 12 WEEKS AGO The results of face-swapping Six Nations… 12 WEEKS AGO Bristol have released another ridiculous… 13 WEEKS AGO WATCH: 120kg prop leaves Scottish player… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Martin Castrogiovanni banned for stamping on foot of Scotland back

gjyufzeap

first_imgFriday Mar 4, 2016 Martin Castrogiovanni banned for stamping on foot of Scotland back Italy prop Martin Castrogiovanni has been banned for two weeks for stamping on the foot of Scotland centre Duncan Taylor when the two sides got in a bit of a scuffle at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Saturday. Scotland won the match 36-20.He appeared before a Disciplinary Committee, after the stamp went unnoticed during the match.The committee reviewed all of the evidence and listened to representations made by, and on behalf of, Castrogiovanni in which he acknowledged that he had committed the act of foul play. The Disciplinary Committee found that the act of foul play warranted a red card.In considering the entry point for sanction, they assessed the seriousness of his actions and found that the act was at the lower end of World Rugby’s sanctions, carrying a two-week suspension.Having considered the various mitigating factors involved, including the player’s admission and his regret at his actions, the committee found that these were not sufficient to merit a reduction in the entry point sanction, and suspended Castrogiovanni for two weeks.While it wasn’t your traditional ‘stamp’, it was clearly petulant and deserving of punishment. He also went at it not once but twice, obviously making proper contact on the second attempt.You could see Greig Laidlaw trying to alert Jaco Peyper to it, but with so many players doing that these days, Peyper obviously didn’t take it too seriously.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Punta House is located on an open lot, alongside a reservoir, in the countryside close to the city of Punta Del Leste, in Uruguay. From the get-go, the location of the residence on this open country wasteland imposed the challenge of creating private spaces and, to some degree, protected visually and climactically. The solution adopted, from the outset, was a one-level house which, on one side looked out to the waters of the reservoir; and, on the other, to an internal patio demarcated by stone walls, which end up defining all of the spaces of the house. Save this picture!© Reinaldo CóserRecommended ProductsWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82Windowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityWoodEGGERLaminatesAnother fundamental concept was the organization of a plan, clearly and simply, on a flat slab structured by rationally-distributed pillars and supported laterally by stone walls. Under this slab, a wooden box contains the bedrooms (looking out to the reservoir) and the kitchen and utility room (looking out to the patio). At the ends of this wooden box, two all glass enclosed living-rooms organize the collective program of the house. And, under the roof, near the stone wall that delimits the space on the southern side of the house, there is a barbeque and a covered veranda that opens to the reservoir and the patio. In the front of the house, facing the waters, a large deck and pool constitute the project´s principal external living space. Save this picture!© Reinaldo CóserThe construction used local material, such as the stone “piedras lajas” of the walls and floor. The wooden box is composed of folding panels of checkered mashrabiya, which enables internal control of lighting. These doors can be opened entirely. The flat slab was executed in exposed concrete, in line with the rationale of using rustic material even in the structural elements. Save this picture!© Reinaldo CóserLittle by little, the empty lot around the reservoir begins to take on the house. The wild flowers embrace the house and atop one of the stone walls an oven-bird makes his home, which, according to local tradition, is a sign of luck.Save this picture!© Reinaldo CóserProject gallerySee allShow lessChurch / Kuadra StudioArticlesVideo: CAM FRAMIS Museum / Jordi BadiaArticles Share 2011 Houseslast_img read more

The clients came to our office with the intention of moving into property development. The common ground was that they were focused on presenting projects with high design content, supporting a different visual approach. In the early design phase we were looking to create an open, more interactive street presence, which led to a very different design response. Save this picture!© Robert HamerThe actual front façade was inspired by the study of 60s and early 70s stereo cabinets with the slatted timber reflecting the slotted speaker elements; in this case they accommodate the covered entry and private en suite window. The house sits lightly balanced on angled steel posts again reminiscent of the stereo cabinet legs, which affords the house the appearance of floating out across the land. Save this picture!Middle Floor PlanThe project sits well in its treed environs, Silvertop Ash was chosen as the cladding because its eventual grey color will blend completely and afford a sense of belonging in the treed backdrop. Silvertop Ash timber has a unique ability to assimilate into the surrounds, offering a very different visual affect. To the North the timber is still evident but only on the third story – as from this vantage point we wanted the upper level to appear as a tree house. ExoTec Façade Panel System was the other main material used because it offers a refreshing contrast to the timber. Save this picture!© Robert HamerThe cut out element of the living area window directs the line of sight down to the pool, BBQ area and backyard space, protecting privacy. The interior begins with a flat veneer wall on approach. Its intention is to create the feeling of being at the base of a huge tree. Practically, it houses the cloak, powder room, cellar and on into the integrated kitchen. It’s all achieved with hidden doors that, when opened, offer an unexpected surprise. Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanThis house is open yet private and the timber feature wall of the interior invites visitors on a journey of discovery. The cantilevered box on the street facade internally houses the day bed and library, which interacts with the study space. Chosen for its ability to reflect the outer landscape, a glass splash back wall was placed in the study space. Save this picture!© Robert HamerA dumbwaiter is included which travels up from the garage into the scullery that resides behind one of the four integrated doors in the kitchen area. The classic Calcutta Marble has been used in the bathrooms, while the kitchen has Caesar stone bench tops and a preparation cube at the end of the main island bench.Save this picture!© Robert HamerProject gallerySee allShow lessSCI-Arc Fall 2011 Lectures & ExhibitionsArticlesUrban Reserve 22 / Vincent Snyder ArchitectsArticles Share Area:  321 m² Photographs Kew House / Vibe Design Groupcenter_img Kew House / Vibe Design GroupSave this projectSaveKew House / Vibe Design Group ArchDaily Australia Architects: Vibe Design Group Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Robert Hamer+ 19 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/159379/kew-house-vibe-design-group Clipboard CopyAbout this officeVibe Design GroupOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasMelbourneHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on August 15, 2011Cite: “Kew House / Vibe Design Group” 15 Aug 2011.

The space was considered as the simplest of its expression. Neither form dominated nor space, a perfect mingling and cohesion to generate ooze sophistication. To create a subtle experience of one’s being and non-being at the same moment, the project adorns emptiness with grace.  Space here is not stagnant; it’s allowed to flow with its highest ardencies, form is only the resonance of space.Save this picture!© Maruf RaihanARCHITECTUREThe location is mostly secluded of settlements at present and therefore remains little less noise.

The whole frame was erected part by part as an independent system where those metal boxes were befitted in between the infrastructure. For ultimate makeovers of containers and to make them livable, necessary cut, holes and adjoining for façade treatment have been done after the accurate placement in desired level to avoid the fragility.Save this picture!© Maruf RaihanThe hefty look of those containers has become dramatically airier with some skillful ensemble of architectural details.

The non-enchanting and austere look of hard core shipping containers had to transform into a ideal, cozy built form.

Continued Push for RFS Repeal

gjyufzeap

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana State Fair gets Popping in Just Two WeeksNext articleAnother Step Forward on Farm Bill Andy Eubank Continued Push for RFS Repeal SHARE A group of House Republicans – the Republican Study Committee – is calling for repeal of the Renewable Fuel Standard. The group is framing the program as an expensive and unwanted federal mandate that Americans don’t want and businesses can’t afford. According to Virginia Representative Bob Goodlatte – the fact that the federal government would put its big thumb on one side of the scale between the use of corn for food and the use of corn for fuel is a wrong approach to begin with. Louisiana’s Steve Scalise – Chairman of the Republican group – says once the public understands the full repercussions of the RFS – there will be an outrage that will demand action from Congress.Different industry representatives have said a continuation of the RFS will result in higher prices at the pump and the grocery store. Critics have also claimed the Environmental Protection Agency should use its authority to waive the standard because it is becoming unduly burdensome. National Turkey Federation Chairman John Burkel says the lack of flexibility on the part of EPA to waive part or the entire mandate is impacting Americans from their dinner tab to their paycheck. He says the program is also increasing the cost of corn – making it harder to feed his poultry.American Petroleum Institute President Jack Gerard says the mandate could put consumers in harm’s way and disrupt the nation’s fuel supply if the outdated, detrimental policy doesn’t come to an immediate end. The industry argues refiners are reaching a point where the increased amount of biofuel in petroleum will damage automobiles. The EPA – however – says higher blends are perfectly safe.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Energy Continued Push for RFS Repeal By Andy Eubank – Jul 18, 2013 last_img read more

Concern about new law on computer crime

first_img to go further ThailandAsia – Pacific Related documents Computer Crime ActPDF – 42.5 KB June 12, 2020 Find out more News Organisation Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about the Computer Crime Act that took effect on 18 July. It allows the police to seize the computer files and online files of persons suspected of disseminating insulting or pornographic content.“The Thai military government is using the fight against pornography to conceal an increasingly restrictive policy towards online free expression,” the press freedom organisation said. “The government must combat online criminality and the sexual exploitation of human beings without committing new violations of free speech or personal privacy.”The new law requires Internet Service Providers to keep the online data of individual Internet users for 90 days. The authorities are empowered to examine this information without any judicial oversight. The police are also allowed to seize computers if they suspect illegal use has been made of them.Technologies, information and communication ministry spokesman Vissanu Meeyoo said “the aim of the law is to prevent the owners of computers from transmitting pornographic content or libellous messages.”Supinya Klangnarong, a member of the local NGO Freedom against Censorship in Thailand (FACT), described the law as “a threat and violation of privacy.” FACT said the measures “do not aim to prevent, as (the authorities) claim, but to control,” adding that the range of websites banned by the government went far beyond the requirements of the fight against pornography and “insults” to the monarchy.”Last April, the authorities blocked the video-sharing site YouTube and several other sites with content critical of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
