In a policy statement the search engine firm said: “More than 40 governments now engage in broad-scale restriction of online information, a tenfold increase from just a decade ago. These actions unnecessarily restrict trade, and left unchecked, they will almost certainly get worse.”With worldwide internet commerce projected to reach $1 trillion soon, it is important to thousands of US companies that China and other nations be allowed to censor or restrict information only in exceptional circumstances, Google said.David Weller, a lawyer who helped Google prepare the paper, said the company hoped to get countries thinking about government restrictions on the internet in economic as well as human rights terms.Weller added that more companies now relied on the ability “to move data around the world with a minimum of government restriction”. Google has had rocky relations with China since it announced in January it would no longer censor search results.

Cheap shares: 2 more value traps to steer clear of in 2021!

first_img Cliff D’Arcy | Thursday, 10th December, 2020 | More on: IAG MRO Since the Covid-19 pandemic caused a spring market meltdown, I’ve been bottom-fishing in the FTSE 100. My goal is to identify cheap shares in quality companies whose share prices have been smashed and set to recover. There is no shortage of candidates, as 55 FTSE 100 shares have dropped over the past 12 months. The average decline among these 55 fallers is 15.2%, but 21 stocks have performed worse than this average. That’s where I’ve recently concentrated my search for fallen angels.Cheap shares: Is IAG a value trap?At #100 on my list is the Footsie’s worst performer in 2020, the shares of International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG). Over the past year, the IAG share price has more than halved, falling 55% in 12 months. That’s because IAG owns several airlines, including British Airways, Iberia, and Aer Lingus. As airmiles flown collapsed in early 2020, the IAG share price duly followed suit. At their 52-week high on 17 January, IAG shares exceeded 453p. At their low on 25 September, they had crashed to 86.54p, hurling them into the FTSE 100’s ‘cheap shares’ bin.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…As news of three efficacious Covid-19 vaccines emerged in November, the IAG share price soared like Concorde. By 4 December, it had surged to 178.8p, more than double its September depths. As I write, the IAG share price hovers around 163p — yet I see nothing to underpin the current share price except hope. No dividends, heavy losses for the foreseeable future — and a long, hard path to profitable airline travel in perhaps 2023–24. That’s why I see these ‘cheap shares’ as a classic value trap, so I would avoid IAG stock in 2020–21.Melrose Industries: Value trap #2?The second of my cheap shares/value traps is engineering conglomerate Melrose Industries (LSE: MRO). Melrose operates similar to a private-equity buyer, in that it “buys good manufacturing businesses with strong fundamentals whose performance can be improved“. Using low levels of leverage, Melrose buys, improves, and then sells businesses, returning these profits to shareholders. For the past decade, Melrose stock was great to own — until 2020 and Covid-19 arrived. Over the past year, Melrose share price has dived 29%, relegating the firm to #93 among FTSE 100 fallers over the past year. But I don’t believe these shares are cheap today.At today’s share price of 159.7p, Melrose is worth £7.9bn, but that’s roughly what it paid to acquire GKN in 2018. Melrose operates in several sectors, but is strongly exposed to the automotive and aerospace industries, which are going through the wringer right now. As with IAG, for Melrose to recover, it needs a return to profitable air travel — and it might be two or three years before it can improve and sell GKN. Like IAG, Melrose cancelled its dividend earlier in the year, plus it has £3.3bn of net debt. Despite losing £685m in the first half of the year, Melrose should make a profit in 2020. But with earnings unlikely to return to pre-Covid-19 levels before 2023, these cheap shares just aren’t for me. They might well turn out to be a value trap, so I’d avoid them in 2020–21.

57 Tivoli Road / b.e. Architecture

first_img “COPY” Architects: B.E Architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Mein Photo+ 27 Share Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/106000/57-tivoli-road-b-e-architecture Clipboard Projects Photographs:  Mein PhotoText description provided by the architects. The Tivoli Road house is a private residence, located on a rare inner-city corner site located within a streetscape of mixed housing stock. Its location allowed us to explore both built form and materials selection, and is designed to act as a bookend to the other houses in its block. The exposed corner site meant a protective building was required for both visual and acoustic privacy, and the design seeks to create an enclosed shelter for the occupants. To enhance the building’s reading as a single object, a single external material was chosen – bluestone. The bluestone was selected for its durability and ability to age kindly, while being sourced locally allowed the construction costs to be lowered. In order to create movement in the external faces, a paneling technique was developed using the diamond sawn bluestone in varying thickness and panel widths – the “chattered” effect the stone created meant we could push the limit of residential architecture to a more brutal, minimal built form. Save this picture!© Mein PhotoTo soften the expansive use of bluestone, the clients’ love of timber was expressed within – where externally the bluestone dominates, so too does the timber internally. The building utilizes Spotted gum flooring throughout, with feature bunk rooms for occasional visitors clad floor to ceiling, and a cranked Blackwood stair in the two storey entrance space that serves as a modern reference to the traditional spiral staircase. Save this picture!first floor planInternal light courts were used to filter light throughout the site, enclosed external courtyards used to incorporate landscaping, both maintaining privacy and connection to the exterior conditions. A six metre sliding window was employed to convert the living area into a large entertaining terrace, borrowing views to the city in order to instill a spaciousness uncommon in small inner city sites. Save this picture!© Mein PhotoWith all b.e. Architecture projects, the refined forms and considered material selection are achieved by resolving every corner, junction and detail with craft-like techniques, seen here particularly in the subtle external texture designed to develop a patina affording the building a timeless quality.Save this picture!east elevationProject gallerySee allShow lessT-Wall Housing / New World Design LLCArticlesLangfang Eco-Smart City / Woods Bagot + HOKArticles Share CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia CopyAbout this officeB.E ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasMelbourneWoodHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on January 30, 2011Cite: “57 Tivoli Road / b.e.

Automated processing to derive dip angles of englacial radar reflectors in ice sheets

first_imgWe present a novel automated processing method for obtaining layer dip from radio-echo sounding (RES) data. The method is robust, easily applicable and can be used to process large (several terabytes) ground and airborne RES datasets using modest computing resources. We give test results from the application of the method to two Antarctic datasets: the Fletcher Promontory ground-based radar dataset and the Wilkes Subglacial Basin airborne radar dataset. The automated RES processing (ARESP) method comprises the basic steps: (1) RES noise reduction; (2) radar layer identification;(3) isolation of individual ‘layer objects’; (4) measurement of orientation and other object properties;(5) elimination of noise in the orientation data; and (6) collation of the valid dip information. The apparent dip datasets produced by the method will aid glaciologists seeking to understand ice-flowdynamics in Greenland and Antarctica: ARESP could enable a shift from selective regional case studies to ice-sheet-scale studies.last_img read more

Vanderburgh County to Upgrade Roads

first_imgVanderburgh County to Upgrade RoadsMAY 19TH, 2019 NOAH ALATZA EVANSVILLE, INDIANAIf you’re traveling across Vanderburgh County this summer, you may run into some orange barrels.“As everyone in the state knows, our roads are in really rough shape,” Vanderburgh County Commissioner Cheryl Musgrave said. “You can’t have a great community with substandard roads, period.”The county is expecting to spend more than $5 million on improving some 34 miles of roadway.Musgrave says she has spent her public life working towards improving county roads. A couple of years ago she worked to support and craft a resolution that increased state gas taxes for road funding.The county applied for the Community Crossings Grant asking for details about which road gets work.Musgrave says the commission has asked the county council for an additional $600,000 to $700,000. However, she says more work could be done to revitalize southwestern Indiana.“Have we been aggressive enough with the state on state roads? I don’t think so,” she said.Musgrave said she believes officials are too laid back when meeting with state representatives.“We ought to do more shouting, in fact, we probably should do more shouting than people closer to Indianapolis because we are so far away, so out of mind,” she said.The Vanderburgh County Commission determines which roads need the most improvement, and with gas tax funding becoming available last year, that money has since been put to work.“We are focused on the repaving and patching but we are also focused on the bigger prize of the redevelopment of roads,” Musgrave said. “The engineering for those is underway and now it’s more than $60 million in projects and residents will start seeing those orange barrels soon.”The City of Evansville has $3.65 million budgeted for road repairs as well. Some projects are already underway and the rest will be completed through September.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Costa Coffee plans to offer meal deals

first_imgCosta Coffee’s sales have continued to increase, but meal deals may soon be on the menu as like-for-like growth slows. The company has said it will be developing its food offering with, for example, lunchtime meal deals such as a panini and a cappuccino for £4.95.It will also continue to capitalise on independent research carried out earlier in the year, which revealed that seven out of 10 people prefered Costa cappuccinos to its competitors, with “an aggressive marketing campaign” throughout the year. Total sales growth was up 22% to £263.8m according to parent company Whitbread’s premlininary results for the year to 26 February, 2009. However, like-for-growth rose at a slower rate of 2%, compared to 3.7% reported for the first half of the 2008/09 year. Operating profit stood at £22.7m – up 9.1%.The coffee chain has achieved net new openings of 296; 110 of which are overseas. As reported in British Baker last month, the chain plans to open another 100 outlets in the UK in 2009/10, and said it would focus on new locations, as well as areas where it could replace existing operators in, for example, supermarkets and hospitals.last_img read more
