See all posts by Michael Taylor When it comes to a stock market crash, it seems like everything goes out the window. Everybody is relentlessly sells as panic spreads like wildfire. But as Warren Buffett once said:“be greedy when others are fearful”.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…When pessimism begins to set in, it’s time to go to work. There are three types of stock that I would buy in a stock market crash.Resilient companies that everybody needsThere are many great companies on the stock market, but when the market is bullish this is already priced in. However, when prices fall because of a market crash, the prospects and cash flows of the companies don’t change. When merchandise is marked down 20% or 30%, it is still the same as when it was full price. Companies such as Unilever will still be around in a bear market. It’s likely that you already use Unilever products without you knowing it. Are you likely to stop buying soap or dishwasher tablets in a recession? Probably not!Postage and delivery companies will also still be around in a stock market recession. Life goes on, as it must, and many businesses that people and companies use everyday won’t skip a beat.Self-sustaining businessesCompanies that rely on whipping out the begging bowl every six months to fund a new project will struggle in a stock market recession. When cash and credit dry up, then those businesses that are left without cash injections to keep themselves going will see their share prices take a hammering.In a stock market recession, those businesses that are able to fund themselves through their existing operations will survive and see their share prices react in a more stable manner than their unprofitable and cash burning counterparts.Businesses with strong balance sheetsCheap credit is everywhere in today’s market of low interest rates. Many companies are tempted to lever themselves with debt to take advantage of the tax shield but also as a mean of cheap expansionary capital.While debt is not a bad thing if managed right, companies that over-lever run the risk of a serious situation if their trading turns south. Debt is essentially a call option on the assets of the business – if the bond or debt holder wishes to exercise their right to their claim on the assets of the business, then the business must deliver. If it is unable to do so without going into administration, then go into administration it must. Many businesses have gone under due to the burden of debt on their balance sheet.Companies with balance sheets that include plenty of cash and tangible assets (intangible assets can be worth anything) will survive a stormy stock market recession.I will be keeping an eye out for these types of businesses when the recession inevitably arrives.

Bay of Plenty’s length of the field try against Wellington

first_imgWednesday Aug 3, 2011 Bay of Plenty’s length of the field try against Wellington Bay of Plenty gave Wellington a good hiding in the ITM Cup on Sunday as they stayed top of the table with their 32-0 in Mount Maunganui. With a minute left in play, the fans got to see something not previously thought possible a flying pig. The Steamers scored three first half tries, notching up a 22-0 point lead that basically had them home and dry, with very little scoring taking place in the second half. In fact only one penalty was kicked, taking the score to 25-0 with time almost up. A bonus point try was to follow though, as dynamic winger Ben Smith sparked a length of the field effort that began a meter or two out for their own tryline. Colin Bourke offloaded to replacement hooker Dan Perrin, and thats when the magic happened. “It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime things that’ll probably never happen again. There was a bit of space there and they kept hanging off me, so I kept on running. I’ve always liked a wee canter,” said Perrin, who coasted up the wing before linking up with his outside backs. “I seem to remember bumping off a couple of tackles that were pretty weak, whoever they were, and once I got over halfway it did cross my mind that I could go all the way. I was trying to get Savea to come across with me and for Noakesy to cut, and then maybe sell Savea and get to the tryline myself,” he admitted. “The boys have given me heaps since Sunday. I already had a bit of a bad nickname – Pig – so since then it’s been the Flying Pig or Babe!” Flyhalf Chris Noakes was with him in support all the way. “I was howling at him to give me the ball but it seemed like he was never going to pass it and was happy to ignore me. When he initially took off I thought ‘Righto, let’s see how this goes’ and was going to cut inside, but there was a big bloke inside him and I didn’t fancy getting clobbered,” Noakes explained. “I expected a pass within the first 10m but Pig had other ideas and some pretty big designs on that tryline, although there’s a few questions being asked about why a hooker was lurking out on the wing in the first place. He surprised us all with the wheels he’s got and seemed to get his second wind once he bunted off the fullback, who wasn’t much of a speed bump at all.” The hooker himself says the distance he covered has been the topic of much debate this week. “I got a heap of texts after the game saying 60m, 63m, 70m, so I just took the longest distance, which was 73m, and will be going with that, although it’ll be 90m when I’m 80 and telling the grandkids,” Perrin said.Time: 01:52 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This is a small one-storied house standing on the residential area in Saitama prefecture that is located to north of Tokyo. In this house, some people of one family live together according to the change lifestyle in the circumstance and it also will be supposed to be the last house of the parents. The following is the demand given to this house: It should have very good exposure to sunlight in only first story, and three bedrooms in a limited surface. And one of these rooms should be closed completely. Therefore the house is composed one space as possible and dividable.Save this picture!© Rino KawasakiSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Rino KawasakiThe original form of the house is composed two house-shapes which have 5.5m x 5.0m square and 35 degree pitched roof. These two house-shapes are joined each other at 25 degree angle. Each two house-shapes have one pillar which is put on the center and have one bedroom that be able to divide by partition. The wall facing south moves inside in order to make eaves for approach and bicycle parking lot. On the other hand, a part of wall facing west extends outside in order to make store room. In interior, it has different spaces, one is narrow and sunny niche that has similar figure with the house-shape, and the other are some closed box; bedroom, Tatami room and toilet.Save this picture!© Rino KawasakiThe two house-shapes are joined at an angle corresponding to the trapezoid site. The trapezoid site itself means that the site exists in between two different environments. In other words, one of the two house-shapes is confronted by the front environment, and the other is confronted by the back environment. The house has the form given by these insignificant things which exist ordinarily anywhere in the world. As a result, sometime things integrate vaguely each other, and sometime things have gap each other. It is hoping that a tie of meaning between each things and environments weaken and the things itself emerge as strange objects in front of people`s minds.Save this picture!© Rino KawasakiProject gallerySee allShow lessJinlong Prefab School / CrossboundariesSelected ProjectsHillside House / SAOTASelected Projects Share Soichiro Ohmura, Sonoka Nakamura CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Japan Architects: Ohmura Nakamura Atelier Area Area of this architecture project Area: 49 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily 2020 Save this picture!© Rino Kawasaki+ 20Curated by Hana Abdel Share House in Mimuro / Ohmura Nakamura AtelierSave this projectSaveHouse in Mimuro / Ohmura Nakamura Atelier House in Mimuro / Ohmura Nakamura Atelier Lead Architects: Photographs: Rino Kawasaki Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeOhmura Nakamura AtelierOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOn FacebookJapanPublished on May 05, 2020Cite: “House in Mimuro / Ohmura Nakamura Atelier” 04 May 2020.

Jenrick praised for attacking London mayor’s housebuilding record

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Jenrick praised for attacking London mayor’s housebuilding record previous nextHousing MarketJenrick praised for attacking London mayor’s housebuilding recordDeveloper says housing minister was right to criticise mayor but says both parties must now come together to find a solution.Richard Reed16th March 20200491 Views Housing minister Robert Jenrick has been praised for his outspoken attack on London mayor Sadiq Khan for failing to meet the capital’s housebuilding needs.Andrew Southern, Chairman of property developer Southern Grove, says Mr Jenrick was right to lambaste the mayor for his dismal record.The comments follow the publication of a letter sent by the minister to Mr Khan, in which he said housing delivery in London under his mayoralty had been “deeply disappointing”.Mr Jenrick said: “Over the last three years housing delivery has averaged just 37,000 a year, falling short of the existing plan target and well below your assessment of housing need.“Over the same period, other mayors such as in the West Midlands have gripped their local need for housing and recognised the opportunities this brings, leading to significant increases in the delivery of homes.Worsening affordability“Since you became Mayor, the price of an average new-build home in London has increased by around £45,000, reaching £515,000 in 2018, 14 times average earnings.“Clearly, the housing delivery shortfall you have overseen has led to worsening affordability for Londoners – and things are not improving, with housing starts falling a further 28% last year compared to the previous.”Andrew Southern said: “This is a savage attack on Sadiq Khan by a minister clearly intent on calling the Mayor to order on housing.“The housing crisis isn’t going away and the gloves have clearly come off in Downing St.“Housebuilding in the capital is still far too low, and Mr Khan’s ability to provide affordable housing has been found wanting in the latest statistics, which show London is on course see a slowdown in completions this year.”‘Politicians must work together’However, Mr Southern added a cautionary note: “What the industry, and Londoners, want now, though, is for politicians in central and devolved government singing from the same hymn sheet. The housing crisis is too big a problem not to be a cross-party issue.”The housing minister hasnow exercised his powers under the Greater London Authority Act 1999 to prevent the mayor from publishing the London Plan – which sets out how to address housing need – until the government’s concerns have been addressed.The government is demanding that Mr Khan:Supports ambitious boroughs to go beyond Plan targets to bring them closer to delivering housing demand;A programme of work, in conjunction with the ministry for housing, to kick-start stalled strategic sites;Collaborating with public agencies to identify new sources of housing supply, including developing a more active role for Homes England;Actively encouraging appropriate density, including optimising new capacity above and around stations;Producing and delivering a new strategy with authorities in the wider South-East to offset unmet housing need in a joined-up way.

University staff applicants not informed of hiring freeze before applying

first_imgIn wake of the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, the University has put into effect a 12-month recruitment freeze and redeployment protocol for all internally funded posts. However, applications for many positions are still being advertised, meaning candidates may only be informed of the hiring freeze after they have applied. The University has been contacted for comment. Wishing to remain anonymous, they told Cherwell: “Academia is already incredibly precarious for early career researchers, and academic job applications take days, if not weeks to complete well – indeed, many postdocs spend more time on job applications for their next position than on the research that they need to publish to help progress through the academic system.” Image Credit to Theonlysilentbob/ Wikimedia Commons Aris Katzourakis, Oxford University and College Union Co-President, stated: “All jobs currently advertised may go through the anticipated processes for approval put in place in the current circumstances and therefore applicants could be contacted to be told the job has been withdrawn at any stage.” An Oxford DPhil alumni criticised Oxford for failing to inform candidates in advance that recruitment procedures had been halted. The HR recruitment protocol clarified that “all recruitment exercises that are currently underway must be paused immediately (if an offer has not already been made) and the posts assessed against the new criteria for approval.” According to the protocol, new research posts may only be created or fixed-term contracts extended if “there are overwhelming operational imperatives to fill the post.” Some other conditions such as posts that must be filled for legal requirements or safety reasons may also lead to approval of new contracts. In response to hiring freezes and having to move teaching online, the board of Universities UK (UUK) has released a proposal to the UK government about a possible industry bailout plan, reportedly worth £2bn. According to the proposal, public funding could mitigate the impact of the ongoing crisis, as well as providing stability for students and researchers across the UK. Theprotocol applies to recruitment across the University, including alldepartments and subsidiary companies. It does not apply to colleges orPermanent Private Halls. The University of Oxford is the largest employer inOxfordshire and currently employs more than 1800 academic staff, more than5,500 research and research support staff, and more than 6,100 graduateresearch students. Cherwell understands that some applicants have only been informed of the recruitment freeze after applying for jobs. The University’s jobs website states: “In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) challenges, the University is re-assessing its resource requirements. As a result, we are pausing some existing recruitment until further notice.” The University reportedly hopes to continue the recruitment process as soon as possible and will be in contact with candidates in the future to provide further updates. last_img read more
