Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV) share price is flying. It ended yesterday at yet another new post-financial-crisis high of 792p. The shares of fellow FTSE 100 housebuilders Persimmon (LSE: PSN), at 2,850p, and Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW), at 210p, have likewise been on a tear.Is the rally set to run and run? Or is this a good time for investors to bank profits?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…Strong rallySince the UK voted to leave the EU in 2016, market sentiment towards builders has waxed and waned. We’ve had spells of optimism and pessimism. However, after a period of weakness last winter, builders have rallied. Barratt’s shares are up 82%, Persimmon’s 53%, and Taylor Wimpey’s 62%.Furthermore, their performances over the last 10 years have been outstanding, with gains of 486%, 491% and 405% respectively. Shareholders have also enjoyed juicy dividends.Help to buyIn their last annual results, the three companies reported further increases in margins and returns on capital employed. Indeed, such metrics have reached historically unprecedented levels in recent years.I think it’s no coincidence these sky-high metrics, and a parallel surge in house prices, have occurred since the government introduced the Help to Buy scheme in 2013. I share the view of analysts who argue housebuilders’ big profits and dividends have effectively been subsidised by the taxpayer.Such dysfunctional market interventions by governments may act as stimulants in the short term. But ultimately a point tends to be reached where the drugs don’t work anymore. I think we’ve reached this point with Help to Buy.The market lapped up the asset-inflating distortion it created. For several years, house prices (and housebuilders’ profits) raced ahead of average wage growth (and builders’ cost inflation). This now appears to have run its course. According to Nationwide, annual house-price growth peaked at 11.8% in June 2014. As of December 2019, it’s running at just 1.4%.Ominous outlookTaylor Wimpey issued a trading update earlier this week, ahead of its 2019 results (scheduled for 26 February). Commentators saw plenty of positives in the numbers. However, what caught my eye was an operating profit margin for the year of 19.6%. In 2018, it had been 21.6%.I think this is ominous, and not just because a drop of two full percentage points is hefty. It’s the first annual margin contraction since the one that predated the last housing slump over a decade ago.Furthermore, despite continuing full-blown Help to Buy in 2020, City analysts are forecasting margin falls across the board at Barratt, Persimmon, and Taylor Wimpey. And I reckon the situation will become still more challenging in 2021. This is because Help to Buy will be restricted to first-time buyers only, and there’ll also be regional caps on prices.Buy low and sell highSome investors are happy to buy and hold stocks forever. However, in the most highly cyclical sectors, such as housebuilding, I prefer a strategy of buying low and selling high. This means buying stocks when margins and returns on capital are at, or near, bottom-of-the-cycle levels. And selling when such metrics are at, or near, top-of-the-cycle altitudes.Personally, if I held shares in Barratt, Persimmon, or Taylor Wimpey at this stage, I’d be happy to sell and bank profits. I’m confident another opportunity to buy low and ride the next up-cycle will come along in due course. G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Parents prefer to use their children as a source of cheap and readily available labour. Instead of going to school, children are used on farms to cultivate or even sent on the streets to sell merchandise.”The problem of child labor is severe in sub-Saharan Africa, where it is estimated that more than 40 percent of all children aged 5 to 14 — approximately 48 million children — labor for survival.The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that agriculture is the largest employer of child labor in Africa. In a recent report, ILO cites “denying children education” as being one of the major negative impacts of child labor in Zambia, especially among children in rural areas.However, it also shows how employers, especially in the tobacco sector in Zambia, have collaborated with government and other stakeholders in a project trying to eliminate child labor. The project’s achievements includes the prevention and withdrawal of about 3,700 children from child labor against a target of 2,760 children.Other countries on the continent are also putting in place measures to try and curb child abuse. In Nigeria, to ensure child protection the Federal Government is establishing a child helpline to protect the rights of children. The project is meant to enable children in any kind of crisis to call a toll-free number to find help.Anglican Communion member churches across Africa also make children, their welfare and involvement in church life, a priority. One example is the Anglican Church of Southern Africa that has included the “nurturing and protection of children and young people” among eight other strategic priority areas including public advocacy, women and gender.The Anglican Church of Kenya took center stage last year when it called for investigations into an allegation that 30 orphaned children were mistreated at the Child Welfare Society of Kenya in Isiolo County.The various measures and efforts undertaken by Anglicans and indeed governments around Africa are a reflection of what Jesus teaches all Christians. The Indaba Reflections from the 2008 Lambeth Conference* capture this well: “Jesus called the children to himself, and in our time we must extend our charity to the children of the world. Sexual exploitation in its varied expressions must not be tolerated.“We wait for the day when child pornography and the commercial sexualization of children come to an end. In God’s kingdom no child will serve as a soldier, or slave, or laborer, but be set free from poverty, violence and their many manifestations.”While the Church has been doing the best it can to ensure that children are safe, the role that parents themselves play in this regard is crucial. Tony Lawrence, the provincial youth coordinator for the Anglican Youth of Southern Africa emphasized: “It is essential for parents to provide the first line of protection.”He added, “[However], our clergy should be teaching Biblical Parenting and this is one of the areas greatly neglected in the church. A few sessions of preparing for baptism is not enough and parents need regular teaching and encouragement if they are going to be able to train the child in the way he must go.”Mr Lawrence also outlined some of the initiatives that they are taking at provincial level to address issues of youths and children. He said, “We have recently launched a project called Project2013 which will develop an outcomes-based framework and curriculum for the spiritual development of all children and young people, and will include not only the theology of our faith but also how children need to relate to the environment around them, including what they can do as personal protection.”Tony added, “It is the first steps to a broader ministry delivery, but we thought by dealing with the “heart” issues first and defining the minimum spiritual foundation intervention, we would have the platform on which to build into the future.”A children coordinator from Kenya, Joshua Ongule thinks that parents should “understand the exodus of faith and nurture its journey to the end.” He said, “The first step is to fill the child’s mind with God’s love at the first stage of faith by realizing that younger children need to learn love, trust and forgiveness from their homes, churches, schools and the people around them.“Therefore parents have a massive duty to ensure that the institutional influencers are positive for things to work for God’s glory. How can a child trust that the love talked about in John 3:16 exists if they don’t experience that love at home, in Sunday school or anywhere?”Mrs Mary Malivas is the provincial Sunday school coordinator for the Church of the Province of Central Africa as well as the diocesan Sunday school adviser for the Diocese of Northern Malawi.She challenged all parents on the continent to “lead by example” if they want their children to grow in Christ and become responsible members of the Church.“Parents should never fight or smoke while their kids are watching,” she said. “You do this kind of stuff and expect children not to imitate? Children should be well taught and it does not matter how old they are. They should be brought up to know and love God.”She explained that, at a minimum, the Church in Malawi encourages children to get involved with the life of the Church by singing in the choir. She added, “We also make sure that their teachers are sensitized on how to protect children against child abuse.”Indeed, as Ongule explains, it is vital for the church to also tackle issues that exacerbate child abuse, neglect and exploitation in Africa, especially poverty.“The church in Africa should research on child poverty, its symptoms and manifestation,” he said, “and then adopt ways in which the Church and the government can join hands to implement policies, program projects and activities aimed at making child protection effective.” Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Tampa, FL Press Release Service Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Belleville, IL By Bellah ZuluPosted Jun 3, 2013 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit a Job Listing Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Submit a Press Release Submit an Event Listing Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Martinsville, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Collierville, TN read more

Save this picture!© José CamposSo, I’ve decided to join the two houses in only one body. It seemed logical. Briefly: one concrete flagstone (84x16m), prestressed, a modern gesture to lodge two houses (in glass, painted iron in forge and pinewood), supported in modern but traditional granite walls.

At the core, a circle, an ellipsis, a place where a tree can be born, a sculpture, or just the space that was left and conquers the place. Save this picture!© José CamposThe permanent search for conciliation between the modern technologies of building with the more traditional construction in this area, which allows the dialectics between the horizontality of the great voids by the ingenuous use of the prestressed, taking the concrete to its limits, along with the roughness of the great blocks of stone which, juxtaposed, draw big walls in the landscape.Save this picture!Floor Plan -1The shape and the tectonic sense of the building have joined together to establish a connection with the place, transforming it into a part of the landscape, preparing the future reaction of the materials as an active dimension of the project.Save this picture!© José CamposThe building has a base, buried on the ground, a garage, an interior swimming-pool, projecting itself on a slim concrete volume, over the hillside, destroying the adopted camouflage.

The site previously formed part of the garden of a house occupied by the clients’ grandparents. The design of the new building was intended to minimize its impact on this existing house, both during and after its construction. A desire to maintain a connection with the existing house informed the decision to keep as much of the existing garden area as possible, and to position the entrance to the new building so it opens onto this space.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil PhotographySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil PhotographyWe aimed to create a unique building using mass-produced components – we all want high-quality products, but at a cheap price and with a short execution timeline. Rectangular in a plan, the two-story building features a flat roof, corrugated metal walls, and a mild steel frame. Corrugated polycarbonate sheet facade encases the multi-purpose event space on the first floor. We used a thin and translucent material to replace the regular exterior walls, where natural light can be maximized in the interior space.Save this picture!Exploded IsometricThe inside of this polycarbonate sheet facade is lined by rich textured drapes to control the amount of natural light inside during specific shows and events. Windows are made from the same material as the walls, so they don’t offer any additional light but can be opened to let fresh air into the building. At night, lights glowing from within transform the building into a huge light-box along the streetscape. A steel structure made up of I-beams is on show inside the building and has been painted black.

This 60 years old house has always remained in the same family and was occupied by different family configurations. In this new phase, the owners decided to make a major transformation so that in the coming years the residence would serve their uses more comfortably, becoming a meeting place for the whole family.Save this picture!© André MortattiTwo regions of the house were the center of the intervention. On one side, kitchen, pantry, storage and staff room maintained a traditional configuration that segregates each room. On the other side, the couple’s suite was preceded by a large hall, leaving plenty of free space. At the same time, the bedroom shared space with a tight closet, leaving a small area for the bed and a small window facing the recess.Save this picture!© André MortattiSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© André MortattiObserving these two fronts, the project sought to reorganize the kitchen area by integrating all rooms with the main hall of the house and expand the suite making it more comfortable. A principle that permeated the actions in all environments was the desire to open the house to its outdoor spaces, making the most of natural light and integrating the vegetation of the gardens with the internal space.Save this picture!© André MortattiThe demolition of all masonry in the kitchen wing made it possible to rethink its organization around a large central isle that is divided between a preparation area and a counter for quick meals. In the background, the sinks were concentrated, facing the new and large window. At each end of this new kitchen, a door leads to the backyard, laundry room and barbecue garden, organizing all flows along clear and direct axes.Save this picture!© André MortattiThe main room of the house assumed the function of living and social space, and not just a visits room. The largest wall in the room had its cladding removed so that the clay bricks were visible. In front of it, a large steel bookcase was designed to give support to the activities. The barbecue area and pizza oven have also been remodeled to establish a clearer relationship with the room and create more fluidity towards the pool.Save this picture!© André MortattiWith the intense demolition of this area, it was possible to explore a new composition of materials and harmonize colors and textures with the original style of the house. A new concrete slab floor unified all these spaces. The old aluminum windows were replaced by wood, the original pattern of the house. And the concrete structures that appeared in the demolition were left on display. In the bedroom, in addition to expanding the space with the new configuration, the major change was the new openings. The existing window was replaced by a larger one of the same model and a glass door was opened to allow the direct connection of the suite with the pool, through a wooden deck that created a balcony for the room. This transformation made possible to integrate this external area previously isolated from the daily life of the house.Save this picture!© André MortattiProject gallerySee allShow less-NESS Talks: NESS.docs 2 Landscape as Urbanism in the AmericasPanel DiscussionCasa Co Coffee Shop / be.bo + m.o.o.c.Selected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© André Mortatti+ 27Curated by Matheus Pereira Share ArchDaily AC House / Beto Magalhães Brazil ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/944259/ac-house-beto-magalhaes Clipboard Area: 10225 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Year: Projects Photographs: André Mortatti Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs AC House / Beto MagalhãesSave this projectSaveAC House / Beto Magalhães Architects: Beto Magalhaes Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBeto MagalhaesOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsSantana de ParnaíbaBrazilPublished on July 24, 2020Cite: “AC House / Beto Magalhães” [Casa AC / Beto Magalhães] 24 Jul 2020.

Oakland, Calif.Mumia Abu-Jamal’s 67th birthday was commemorated with three well-attended actions in San Francisco and the East Bay from April 20-24.Gerald Smith of the Labor Action Committee to Free Mumia speaks at the Alameda County Courthouse, April 24. Photo credit: Leon Kunstenaar/ProBonoPhotoOn April 20, more than 50 people picketed in front of KQED public television studios in San Francisco’s Financial District to protest the airing of Independent Lens’ “Philly DA” about the career of District Attorney Larry Krasner. Although he campaigned as a “progressive” who would rectify decades of white-supremacist rulings against Black defendants, Krasner has since refused to order a new trial for Mumia — or open possibilities for overturning his conviction.Mumia, a world-renowned revolutionary, writer and political prisoner, has served over 40 years for a crime he did not commit. Krasner has fallen into lockstep with the Fraternal Order of Police which have stood in the way of Mumia’s release.A broad coalition of activists and organizations is demanding Independent Lens grant them equal time to present Mumia’s case. The coalition organizing the KQED protest included the Labor Action Committee to Free Mumia, No Justice Under Capitalism, Free Mumia SF and the Prisoners’ Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party.A day of international solidarity with Mumia on his birthday began April 24 in Fruitvale with a rally at Oscar Grant Plaza — renamed by the community after Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police assassinated Grant, a young Black man, in 2009. More than 100 people marched from there to rally outside the Oakland Police Department. Speakers from the Oakland Education Association, the SF Bay View National Black Newspaper and the Black Panther Party Cubs demanded Mumia be set free immediately.The demonstrators stayed in the streets and marched to the Alameda County Courthouse. District Attorney Nancy O’Malley has consistently refused to charge and prosecute Oakland police and sheriffs for killing Black and Brown people. A broad array of people spoke, including young activists on how Mumia’s writings had politicized their generation. A taped recording in support of Mumia from Kevin Cooper, a prisoner on death row in California, was played. Pam Africa, Minister of Confrontation of the MOVE organization and head of International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia, called in from Philadelphia, as did Mumia’s grandson, Jamal Jr., to thank everyone for their solidarity and organizing.Later in West Oakland, a ceremony was held for Mumia on the street where Huey P. Newton, a leader of the Oakland Black Panther Party, was shot and killed August 22, 1989. Participants gathered in front of a home with a mural dedicated to the women of the Black Panther Party. Black activists — including Fredrika Newton, his widow and president of the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation — led a procession to 10th and Center Streets where Newton was killed.The message of these events was simple: Unite to Free Mumia! According to supporters and prisoners’ rights activists in the Bay Area, the campaign will continue until Mumia is returned home to his family.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
