Europe’s largest airline by revenues said yesterday it would make less than the previously targeted operating profit of €300m (£256m) in the year to the end of March, but would remain in the black. The setback, announced with a third-quarter operating profit of €81m, reflects a cocktail of air traffic control strikes, bad weather on both sides of the Atlantic and security problems in key destinations in Africa. Unit revenues have also been damaged by overcapacity as other airlines rush to add seats as markets recover, it said.

Stock market crash part 2: why it could already be over and what I’d do right now

With the stock market crash of the spring still in investors’ minds, many have wondered if we are about to see a second big plunge. And shares slipped back a fair bit last week. Yet so far, we haven’t seen a retreat on the scale of the spring reversal.But there’s been a lot to worry about, such as the resurgence of Covid-19 infections, further lockdowns, the US presidential election and the ongoing Brexit free trade agreement negotiations with the EU. However, there are some powerful reasons to believe we could already have seen the worst of any second stock market crash in 2020.5G 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…Why a second big stock market crash may not happenIndeed, from where we are now, the flow of news could start to improve. For example, the removal of the uncertainty of the US election is imminent with the voting happening today. And the Brexit free trade agreement outcome will likely be known soon. Meanwhile, the recent measures taken by governments to curb the spread of Covid-19 will probably work quite well. And the graphs showing rates of infection growth could begin to curl over – perhaps that process has already started.I think there are some clues in the markets suggesting a positive move ahead. For example, the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) is a measure of price fluctuations expected in the S&P 500 index in America. Investors often jokingly refer to the VIX as the fear index. And the predictive nature of the VIX makes it a measure of implied volatility looking about 30 days ahead.So, it works as a rough measure of investor sentiment, and some people use it as a leading indicator. And right now, the interesting thing is the VIX seems to be declining from a peak, suggesting we could see less volatility ahead. Indeed, when the VIX hits its peaks, the general stock market has usually hit its troughs. So, we could see rising share prices ahead.I’d buy cheap shares right nowAnd I think the recent movements in bank shares support that probability. Indeed, banks can work as leading indicators too. I read the investing books published by Peter Lynch and David Dreman and learned that bank shares can be among the first cyclical shares into and out of recessions and downturns. So, I’m encouraged by the strength we’re seeing in stocks such as Lloyds, NatWest, Barclays and HSBC. Indeed, they’ve been surprising the market recently with higher-than-expected earnings.I reckon it’s possible we could be nearer to the beginning of a bull market than we are to a stock market crash. So, I’d use the current window of opportunity — while many shares are depressed — to pick quality stocks for my long-term portfolio.And one approach could be to research cyclical shares that could resurge in a new bull market, such as Aviva, Bellway and Norcros. I’d also consider defensive stocks that can suffer from valuation cycles, such as GlaxoSmithKline, Smith & Nephew and British American Tobacco. Indeed, many shares look like they are out of favour with investors right now and could be selling cheap.

AL’s House / Gonzalo Mardones V Arquitectos

first_img AL’s House / Gonzalo Mardones V Arquitectos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Nico Saieh Save this picture!elevationAL’s house is located in Lo Barnechea District at Santiago’s foothills. Its volume locates like a longitudinal bar perpendicular to the street with the double purpose of facing North (Sun and better views) and allowing a big free space for the garden. The proposal consists of a barbeque gridiron – external kitchen at one end of the area in order to embrace the place. As usual in our works, we chose a unique building material, in this case, reinforced concrete and just one finish, which was the organic texture of color from the area’s dry fields. All woodwork, windows, and floors are made of cedar wood. Interiors are entirely white in order to allow the light bounce and multiply architectural light filtering through walls and ceilings. The roof is a relaxation place, resulting in a cedar wood deck that allows a space to be open to surrounding geography.

Haitians in the streets stage general strike

first_imgHaiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. An audit, ordered by a Haitian court and released the end of May, found that between $2 billion and $4 billion in funds generated by Venezuela’s PetroCaribe oil-purchasing program were lost due to corruption during the two years Jovenel Moïse of the Bald-Headed Haitian Party (PHTK) has been president.In Port-au-Prince, June 9, Haitians on general strike demand to know: “Where is the PetroCaribe money?”But it wasn’t just corruption that drew hundreds of thousands of Haitians into the streets throughout the country on June 9. Inflation has chewed up big chunks of income of the 60 percent of Haitians living below the poverty line ($2.40 a day). According to the World Bank, inflation is currently 15 percent. Jerry Tardieu, who represents the relatively well-off community of Pétionville in the National Assembly, made the point in a June 12 AlterPresse interview that when Moïse became president, 66 gourdes (Haitian currency) could buy one dollar; now it takes 100.The nationwide demonstrations June 9, which took place in Cap Haïtien, St. Marc, Jacmel and Gonaïves, as well as Port-au-Prince, the capital, had a single demand:  President Moïse resign and go to jail along with his cronies from the PHTK.In Port-au-Prince, according to the June 12 Haïti-Liberté, “[O]pposition figures and radios reported at least seven killed and over 100 wounded by gunfire from police and government-aligned gangs.” The march began peacefully,  but when it reached the area around the Champ de Mars and the National Palace, the cops attacked.On June 10, Radio France International reported that the cops used live rounds, while two buildings were set on fire. YouTube video clips show the demonstration breaking into smaller groups that scattered over the area around the National Palace.The French embassy, a supermarket and a big movie theater were some of the targets singled out by protesters.Then on June 10 and 11, Port-au-Prince was almost completely paralyzed by a general strike that shut down public transportation and most businesses, banks, schools, factories and government offices. According to Yves Pierre-Louis, news director of Radio Timoun, which is housed at the Aristide Foundation for Democracy, “[F]or these first two days, we can say the strike succeeded close to 100 percent.”The general strike involved street barricades made from burning tires, rocks and billboards.Since this is the time of year that Haitian schools conduct exams, teachers and students who went on strike were risking a semester or, in some cases, a year’s worth of school work.It is clear that certain significant bourgeois figures are now in opposition to Moïse and his cronies, who most certainly have been rejected by the masses of the Haitian people. Given that the United States was so involved in selecting Haiti’s president, its conduct in the current struggle is going to play an important role in the outcome.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Soy Checkoff Now Prioritizing Fungicide Resistance Education

first_img SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – May 9, 2017 Previous articleField Focus: Interview With Lance ShepherdNext articleIndiana Ethanol Producers Lobby Lawmakers on E-15 Andy Eubank Home Indiana Agriculture News Soy Checkoff Now Prioritizing Fungicide Resistance Education Fighting fungicide resistanceWe hear a lot about weed resistance and the steps farmers are encouraged to take to fight herbicide resistance. Now the United Soybean Board is expanding its Take Action program, originally aimed at weed resistance, to include fungicide resistance and education about the diseases resistant to fungicides.Jimmy Sneed is a director on the United Soybean Board who farms in Hernando, Mississippi, not far from the Tennessee border and the Mississippi River. He says widespread fungicide resistance is a concern, “because it’s already beginning to show up, and that’s one of the things that we hope we learn from the Roundup resistance issue,” he told HAT. “We need to get out in front of it and that’s what we’re trying to do now by educating the farmers to the issue itself number one, and number two try to give them some strategies to manage the issue.”And some of those strategies you’ve heard many times in the past.“Something as simple as scouting,” he said. “Another thing is understanding what the thresholds are and making sure you don’t spray until you reach thresholds. Then of course the foundation of our take action is using different modes of action and that same strategy works well with fungicides too, and rotating your modes of action.”Sneed told HAT USB hopes for the same kind of success with fungicide awareness that they’ve been able to see with Take Action on Weeds.“We are really, really pleased with it,” he explained. “Industry has really come on board and been great partners. Universities have come on board and have really bought in and given us a lot of help on the technical side as far as management strategies. Several associations are involved too, so we are just really, really pleased with the partnerships we’ve been able to develop with other organizations to benefit all farmers.”At the Take Action on Weeds website USB has added a Fungicide Classification Chart, based on the popular Herbicide Classification Chart.Sneed is USB Secretary and Audit & Evaluation Chair.

Russia censors Novaya Gazeta at Chechen leader’s behest

first_img RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists InternetFreedom of expressionPredatorsJudicial harassment RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists InternetFreedom of expressionPredatorsJudicial harassment RSF_en Crédit : Natalia Kolesnikova / AFP Читать на русском / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the Russian media control agency Roskomnadzor’s “unacceptable” censorship of an article in the leading Moscow investigative newspaper Novaya Gazeta about Chechnya’s chaotic and authoritarian management of the coronavirus crisis.It seems that the Russian authorities will stop at nothing to support Ramzan Kadyrov, who has ruled the autonomous southwestern republic of Chechnya with an iron hand for years and is on RSF’s list of Predators of Press Freedom.Roskomnadzor ordered Novaya Gazeta to delete the article from its website on 15 April on the grounds that it contained “inaccurate” information and could prove dangerous – without saying who might be endangered.The order came two days after the Chechen strongman condemned the article in a video broadcast live on his Instagram account and distributed via Telegram, calling on the Federal Security Service (FSB) to put a stop to the newspaper’s criticism. Asked yesterday about Kadyrov’s threats, Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov said he saw “nothing unusual.”An archived version of the article is still accessible. Published on 12 April, it was written by Elena Milashina, a Novaya Gazeta reporter who was the target of a physical attack in the lobby of her hotel during a visit to Grozny, the Chechen capital, in February. The attack remains unpunished.”These new threats and restrictions on Novaya Gazeta, a newspaper that has been repeatedly targeted by the Chechen authorities, are unacceptable,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Russia is required by its international obligations to guarantee journalists’ safety. We call on the Russian authorities to firmly condemn these dangerous comments and to end the censorship that is helping to turn Chechnya into an ‘information black hole’.”Russia is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

News media prevented from working by post-election violence

first_img News November 19, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 News media prevented from working by post-election violence News Follow the news on Guinea Guinean journalist finally freed after being held for nearly three months Organisation News Guinean journalist’s continuing detention is “incomprehensible,” RSF says News Guinea : RSF and AIPS call for release of two imprisoned journalists to go furthercenter_img Receive email alerts RSF_en GuineaAfrica Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders appeals for calm and respect for the media after a week in which most journalists in the capital, Conakry, have been staying indoors for fear of being targeted by activists or by the security forces in a wave of violence that began one week after the second round of the presidential election on 7 November.The Sabari FM/Le Diplomate media group stopped working on 15 November after supporters of the losing candidate, Cellou Dalein Diallo, threatened to attack it. Other news media are paralyzed as a result of the climate of violence.“By restoring calm to the Guinean capital, the state of emergency declared on 17 November will hopefully allow journalists to resume working,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We deplore the fact that journalists have been directly threatened and that this week’s violence contributed to the media’s paralysis. It is particularly disturbing that ethnicity has been used as grounds for threatening certain media with reprisals.”Several dozen Diallo supporters gathered outside the headquarters of the Sabari FM/Le Diplomate group in the Conakry district of Cosa at around 9 a.m. on 15 November and threatened to ransack it, accusing its management and journalists of supporting the election’s declared winner, Alpha Condé. At the same time, they clashed with members of the special election security units in the district, where most of the inhabitants are members of the Peul ethnic group and Diallo supporters, and where the security forces cracked down on protests with particular brutality.The Diallo supporters finally called off their plan to ransack the Sabari FM/Le Diplomate offices after mediation by the building’s owner. The group’s news media stopped operating at 11 a.m. and, since then, its journalists have not been working, like most of the country’s other journalists.A Conakry-based journalist told Reporters Without Borders: “It should be pointed out that Sabari FM invited several representatives of [the pro-Diallo alliance] to speak on the air during the campaign, so the station did make a significant effort to be balanced.”Several organizations including International Crisis Group have reported that Diallo’s supporters were themselves the targets of “systematic attacks” by the security forces when they staged their protests in reaction to the announcement that their candidate had lost.Crédit photo AFP April 15, 2021 Find out more GuineaAfrica April 9, 2021 Find out more May 19, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
