A Bank of America survey of 223 fund managers during the week ended May 14 found 68% see the recent run-up as a bear market rally, rather than the beginnings of a bull market run. A bear market identifies as a sustained period of downward trending stock prices, often sparked by a 20% market drop.After a robust market rally through April and May, things are slowing down. A virus spike in Beijing is fuelling fears of a second coronavirus wave. This is creating a cautious pause on global market rallies and triggering the price of oil to fall again. If a second coronavirus wave takes hold globally, a significant market pull-back is likely. The impact will be bigger on stocks tied to an expected economic recovery such as travel and entertainment. 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…Forget day tradingIn a bear market, stock price volatility is a given, so it can be tempting to get in and out of stocks quickly to make fast profits. This is not a good idea. Even the best day traders can realise big losses when market sentiment is low. I think a long-term investing strategy is a more sensible option. Something along the lines of Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy will bring you future wealth if you are disciplined and patient.Robust stocks to buy in a bear marketThe FTSE 100 is the UK’s most popular financial index and its constituents tend to be large-cap, stable companies. This is the first place I would look for robust stocks to buy in a downturn. Choosing stocks that will always be in demand, such as consumer staples, like food, alcohol, tobacco and toiletries is a good place to start. Utilities should also remain in demand, for example electricity, water and telecoms.Energy generator and distributor SSE is a stock I would consider. The SSE share price has had a volatile time. In February it was flying high, reaching close to a 10-year pinnacle. Since then its shares have fluctuated a lot and are now down 28%.With close to half of all FTSE 100 firms slashing their dividends in recent weeks, income investors are left with slim pickings. So far SSE is one company that has kept its dividend intact, but whether that will still be the case later this week remains to be seen. SSE will be revealing its full-year results on Wednesday.Risky stocks to buy in a bear marketOil and gas stocks are risky at the best of times, but a bear market can provide an opportunity to buy them cheaply. Fossil fuels are a necessary evil, but despite moves to have them phased out, this will not happen soon. They are still very much required and in time the oil price will rise again. However, not all oil stocks will survive, and recovery will be a lengthy process. BP and Shell are my favourite UK oil stocks because they have vast industry experience, they are investing heavily in renewables and have access to much more liquidity than many of their smaller industry peers.I think another stock market crash is highly likely, but that does not mean you should stop investing. If you are careful about the stocks you choose and patient enough to see them rise again, you can still grow a sizeable portfolio for the future.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

It has two buildings, five levels each, divided by a central patio, and communicated through bridges around the perimeter that separate the social and the private areas. Save this picture!Courtesy of JSª ArquitecturaThe central patio provides natural lighting to all the apartments and on the ground floor generates an access plaza as well as a common area to get together. The general plan was created based on the functions and size of each typology, mixing solid blocks with “L” shaped blocks, including Simplex or Duplex apartments, with double heights.

Züblin AG, Bereich Heilbronn, Zublin TimberCity:HeilbronnCountry:GermanyMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Bernd BorchardtText description provided by the architects. A milestone in modern timber construction, SKAIO is Germany’s first wooden high-rise and currently the country’s tallest wooden building. Its timber-frame construction is, to a large extent, prefabricated, comprised of supporting structures made of laminated timber, and wooden slabs that rest on steel ring beams that resonate with the slim design of the construction. The project is part of the recently developed residential quarter Neckarbogen, an urban district in Heilbronn.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtWhile the Bundesgartenschau, a biennial federal horticulture show held in Germany, traditionally features landscape architecture and gardening with often beneficial, lasting effects on urban living, this year’s host city approached the format from a slightly different angle. Located in the north of Baden-Württemberg, along the river banks of the Neckar, Heilbronn was largely rebuilt in the 1950s after airstrikes had wiped out considerable portions of the urban fabric, including the city’s historic district. Today, its population is steadily growing, and the organizers of the exhibition decided to devise a new residential quarter with 22 buildings—home for 3,500 people.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtThe buildings are designed by various different architects to guarantee maximum diversity within the confines of the city’s building codes. One such new building is SKAIO, conceived and constructed by the Berlin-based architecture firm Kaden+Lager. The practice recently made its mark with innovative hybrid constructions, cleverly combining various building materials in a way that allows the wood to re-enter German cities. In the aftermath of the Second World War in Germany in particular, wood has fallen into disgrace as an urban building material.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Bernd BorchardtWhile combustibility seems an obvious concern, this evolution rests mostly on symbolic grounds: in terms of fire safety, the performance of timber actually outweighs that of steel, and its fire resistance can be calculated to the minute. While concrete’s negative environmental impact has gained media attention —earlier this year the British Guardian featured a concrete week— Kaden+Lager’s designs exude a climate-friendly presence through their use of wood. The amount of wood used for SKAIO, for instance, stores 1,200 metric tons of carbon dioxide. A veritable construction material that indeed deserves to be labeled sustainable, wood is comparatively ‘fast’.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtA spruce tree, for instance, can grow up to half a meter per year under good conditions. Whereas a grain of sand could take several thousand years to form and it is still crucial for the production of concrete. Through off-site prefabrication, wood furthermore offers significant advantages: construction is fast, precise, and proper; as off-site working conditions are safer, and more senior craftspeople can use their long-standing, indispensable knowledge. Prioritizing wood’s performance over its visual omnipresence, Kaden+Lager makes use of the material in a pragmatic way.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtThe firm deploys wood where it makes sense. As timber concrete composites in slabs, as prefabricated walls, and structurally with pillars made of laminated timber, wood plays a crucial role in Kaden+Lager’s design practice. Often disguised from the outside, their timber constructions are not immediately recognizable as such. Their buildings simply don’t resemble typical wooden huts. This is in part owing to their modernist sobriety, in part owing to their finish: for their façades, Kaden+Lager often choose aluminium cladding or plaster. Adding to this twist, the circulation cores and ground floors are made of reinforced concrete which further defines Kaden+Lager’s undogmatic approach to timber construction.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtSKAIO is the pinnacle of the firm’s recent achievements. Soaring as an aluminum-clad volume on the southeast corner of Heilbronn’s new real estate development, the 34 meters (approx. 112 feet) tall residential block features ten stories and offers 60 apartments, 40% of which are subsidized by the state. The internal layout has been adapted to reflect the new urban realities, in which the nuclear family no longer represents the sole point of reference. SKAIO instead offers apartment types that are usually hard to come by in a contemporary city: 56 smaller studios and one-bedroom apartments.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Bernd BorchardtThese individual units, however, can be easily combined to accommodate future changes in use. In addition, four shared apartments are dedicated to socially disadvantaged members of society, run by two of Heilbronn’s social welfare organizations. The studios start, in-floor space, at 40 square meters (approx. 430 square feet); the largest flats offer 90 square meters (approx. 969 square feet). Every apartment has its own loggia, floor to ceiling windows to provide for a maximum amount of daylight, and energy-efficient underfloor heating. The roof has a common garden terrace, partly furnished, partly green, with produce gardens and stunning views across the city.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtAbove the underground car park, the ground floor features commercial spaces, common spaces—laundry room, communal kitchen—and ample bicycle parking. Common laundry rooms in Germany tend to be rare and save valuable surface area in each apartment. A central core made of reinforced concrete contains the safety-stairwell and an elevator, which allows for barrier-free access to all apartments. While the primary structure in the basement, ground floor, and first floor are made of reinforced concrete, all other load-bearing components are made of wood or wood-steel hybrids. In total, SKAIO comprises almost 1,300 cubic meters (45,909 cubic feet) of certified wood, thus taking a firm stance against issues in the built environment in view of the 2015 Paris Agreement.Save this picture!© Bernd BorchardtProject gallerySee allShow lessKlaus Jan Philipp Explores the History of Architectural Drawings from the Middle Age…ArticlesBrazilian Houses: 10 Residences Using Recycled MaterialsArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/949490/skaio-wooden-apartment-building-kaden-plus-lager Clipboard CopyApartments•Heilbronn, Germany CopyAbout this officeKaden + LagerOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsHeilbronnOn FacebookGermanyPublished on October 18, 2020Cite: “Skaio Wooden Apartment Building / Kaden + Lager” 18 Oct 2020.

La Casa Blanca intensifica guerra criminal contra inmigrantes

No Comments

first_imgEn la actualidad, la Casa Blanca se comporta como una cuerda elástica, con proclamas de arriba a abajo que cambian día a día y las amenazas de grandes edictos que pueden no llegar a nada, aturdiendo a su público.Inmigrantes retenidos bajo un puente en El Paso por la Patrulla Fronteriza EE. UU.Un día, Donald Trump amenaza con cerrar de inmediato la frontera del sur; otro día para cortar la ayuda a Centroamérica de inmediato. La puerta siempre giratoria del personal de la Casa Blanca podría causar un pequeño tornado ya que los funcionarios de alto y bajo nivel van y vienen.La última es la renuncia el 7 de abril de la Secretaría de Seguridad Nacional, Kirstjen Nielsen.Todo esto ocurre cuando los migrantes se enfrentan a condiciones cada vez más desesperadas que necesitan soluciones inmediatas, humanas y justas. A pesar del caos en la Casa Blanca, la guerra de Trump contra los migrantes está teniendo un éxito franco. Las familias están divididas, los niños desaparecidos, la migración masiva continúa, junto con la superexplotación en el trabajo, los campos de concentración deprimentes y las muertes que incluyen niños pequeños. Las políticas imperialistas, lamentablemente, tienen la ventaja por ahora.Trump apunta al Triángulo del NorteTrump anunció el 2 de abril que recortaría la ayuda a tres naciones centroamericanas: Guatemala, El Salvador y Honduras, conocidas como el Triángulo del Norte. Esa noche, el Departamento de Estado informó al Congreso que $450 millones que normalmente se destinarían a estos países se desviarían a otros lugares.Sin embargo, el día anterior al anuncio de Trump, Nielsen acababa de firmar un acuerdo regional con los funcionarios de los tres países para que “llevaran a cabo operaciones policiales conjuntas y lucharán contra la migración no autorizada”. Sin embargo, a la mañana siguiente, el Presidente Trump criticó nuevamente a aquellos países, así como México, por los niveles récord de migraciones familiares a los Estados UnidosDe acuerdo con el sitio web del Departamento de Estado, el gobierno de los Estados Unidos gastó más de $2.6 mil millones en ayuda para el Triángulo del Norte durante los años fiscales 2015-2018. Entonces, el mero recorte de $450 millones parece ser una cuestión de postura.Los demócratas y otros que se opusieron al recorte afirmaron que los mismos programas destinados a prevenir la violencia social, la pobreza y el hambre que causan la migración sufrirían. Pero no hay que ser un economista para saber que este dinero no ha hecho nada para detener la migración forzada.Durante décadas, el gobierno de los Estados Unidos ha robado dinero de los impuestos de la gente de su país y lo ha utilizado para crear terror en el extranjero, incluido en el Triángulo del Norte. El dinero no se ha utilizado para prevenir el hambre, sino ha servido para llenar los bolsillos de los agronegocios de EE.UU., Los propietarios de talleres de explotación y el Pentágono.La Coalición de Liderazgo Global de los EE.UU., una agrupación imperialista de ex funcionarios del gobierno, admite que en “Guatemala y Honduras, la mitad del país vive en la pobreza,… casi un tercio de los jóvenes está desempleado y no está en la escuela. Afirma que muchos están obligado a huir por “falta de comida”.Por lo tanto, según la admisión de este mismo consorcio de la clase dominante, las décadas de ayuda no han ayudado en absoluto a la gente de la región.Según el New York Times del 2 de abril, “De las naciones del Triángulo del Norte, Guatemala recibe la mayor ayuda. … [Según] la Oficina de Washington para América Latina, … las cifras más recientes de 2017 [fueron] más de $78.6 millones”.Eso es mucho dinero para una pequeña nación empobrecida.Lo que ayudaría sería si el dinero realmente fuera a la gente y no a las oligarquías. Lo que ayudaría sería si el imperialismo pagara reparaciones a los pueblos de América Central por siglos de robo. Es la intervención de los Estados Unidos la que ha institucionalizado la violencia que Trump ama culpar a otros países.En la década de 1980, por ejemplo, Washington organizó una guerra sangrienta contra los pueblos indígenas de Guatemala, que se estaban organizando audazmente e incluían una organización guerrillera. El Pentágono, a través de sus lacayos, llevó a cabo una guerra genocida contra la población maya e indígena. Al menos 600 aldeas fueron destruidas, más de 200.000 personas murieron, miles desaparecieron y millones fueron desplazadas. (PBS.org)El sitio web de Combat Genocide dice: “Se han documentado seiscientas veintiseis masacres por el ejército guatemalteco”. El 18 de julio de 1982, el presidente Ríos Montt fue citado en el New York Times diciendo al público maya: “Si estás con nosotros, te alimentaremos; Si no, te matamos.Y en Honduras, el Departamento de Estado, supervisado por la Secretaria de Estado demócrata Hillary Clinton, organizó un golpe de estado en 2009 contra el presidente progresista Mel Zelaya, anunciando un gobierno de derecha pro imperialista. Periodistas, mujeres, sindicalistas y cualquier persona que lucha por la justicia son amenazados o asesinados. Héroes populares como Berta Cáceres, una líder indígena de Lenca que luchaba contra la destrucción de la Tierra, y Margarita Murillo, una líder campesina que organizaba a los trabajadores, fueron asesinadas por el estado hondureño.Claramente, si Washington quiere detener la migración forzada, debería salir del Triángulo del Norte por completo y pagar la compensación.Las caravanas de migrantes continúan, los campos de concentración son la “bienvenida”Las condiciones imperialistas continuarán obligando a los trabajadores a salir de sus países de origen.Una vez que llegan a la frontera sur, los centroamericanos, a pesar de que “legalmente” pueden solicitar asilo según las leyes de inmigración actuales de los Estados Unidos, se ven obligados a esperar en condiciones deplorables dentro de los campamentos temporales en el lado mexicano de la frontera.Si se les permite entrar, se redondean y ponen en una cantidad equivalente a los campos de concentración. En El Paso, miles se vieron obligados a vivir bajo un puente, cercado con alambre de púas.Los niños siguen siendo separados de sus padres, quienes a menudo son deportados mientras sus hijos permanecen en los EE.UU. Este es el tipo de atrocidad que el gobierno de los EE.UU. llevó a cabo contra los niños nativos americanos en un período anterior.Otro ejemplo de política de supremacistas blancos y misóginos se da en un artículo de Harper’s Bazaar publicado el 2 de abril. Este artículo de lectura obligatoria, escrito por Jennifer Wright, se titula: “Los Estados Unidos monitorea los períodos de las niñas migrantes para evitar que obtengan abortos. . “Esto es algo realmente extraño. Wright señala: “Todavía no sabemos dónde están los 1.488 niños … pero, por Dios, pueden hacer un seguimiento de los ciclos menstruales de las migrantes adolescentes”.En efecto.En todos los niveles la guerra contra los migrantes continúa.Pero en toda guerra, la represión engendra resistencia. Los migrantes y los trabajadores en los Estados Unidos se levantarán de nuevo para poner fin a la guerra contra la clase trabajadora. El 1 de mayo, la demanda de “No guerras, no muros en la lucha de los trabajadores”  resonará en todo el mundo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two media workers killed in suicide bombing

No Comments

first_imgNews RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Iraq Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan IraqMiddle East – North Africa “We offer our condolences to the friends and families of these two media workers and we condemn this attack with the utmost energy,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Journalists are among the leading victims of renewed sectarian violence in Iraq, which has been revived by the crisis in Syria and which could tip the country into civil war at any moment. We have repeatedly drawn the government’s attention to the dangers that journalists face and we have asked in vain for adequate measures to protect them.” According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, the two Al-Iraqiya TV employees worked for its Babel province bureau and were on duty when they were killed.Fourteen Iraqi media workers have been killed in the past five months.
