This year has been more good than bad for the stock markets. The FTSE 100 index was up almost 3% from where it started the year, indicating that it has managed to hold on to its gains even if the stock market rally has stalled.I think we are poised for it to resume in 2021, though. There are three reasons why I think so.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…#1. Growth forecasts upgradedThe Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) just upgraded its global economic growth forecasts. The inter-governmental organisation, that brings together 37 of the most developed economies, now expects the world economy to increase by 5.6% this year and 4% next year. This is a sharp improvement from its earlier forecasts.The fact that the last time the world economy grew by 4% was back in 2011, puts the number in perspective. Even if we attribute 2021 growth to a recovery from the slump of last year, continued growth in 2022 does indeed sound positive. Typically, growth booms accompany robust stock market activity as well.I would think that FTSE 100 companies that get significant revenues from more than one geography can benefit most from a global growth trend. FTSE 100 consumer goods and mining companies like Unilever, Anglo American, and Rio Tinto would be my picks.#2. FTSE in focusIn particular, the OECD has upgraded the UK’s growth rate this year by almost an entire percentage point to 5.1% owing to the speedy vaccine rollout. Deutsche Bank economists, too, have recently expressed a bullish view on the UK economy. Higher savings can lead to more spending post-lockdown according to them, resulting in a 0.5%–1% GDP boost. I think this supports the potential for a FTSE stock market rally further.The one sector that I think can rally quite a bit is construction. This is because it is the only sector to have shown growth in the UK in January this year as the country went into the third lockdown as per the UK’s national statistics released yesterday. I would follow FTSE 100 construction related companies like CRH and Ashtead now.#3. Supportive policies can drive a stock market rallyGovernment policies can further continue to support growth. The UK’s latest budget has supported both consumer spending and real estate. This alone can buoy the UK’s stock markets further. I am keenly looking out for further developments in FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 property stocks like NEXT, Persimmon, and Bellway, as examples.The US fiscal stimulus can further benefit them, through spillover effects from the world’s largest country economy. I think FTSE stocks that cater to the US markets could gain as a result. An example would be Cineworld.Investing for the long termEven though all signs point in the right direction, I think we should still invest based on the long-term prospects of individual stocks. This can ensure that our invested capital can grow even if there is no stock market rally around.  3 reasons a stock market rally can happen soon.

Pray, act to end violence against Christians, Nigerian ACC members…

first_img Rector Belleville, IL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK [Anglican Communion News Service] Members of the Anglican Communion all around the world are being called to pray, fast and act in support of their brothers and sister in Nigeria facing violence and death.The Most Rev. Ikechi Nwachukwu Nwosu, the Ven Abraham Okorie and Abraham Yisa, the Church of Nigeria’s ACC members, were responding to a similar appeal to Nigerian Anglicans by their primate, the Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh.“We have one week of prayer and fasting from the 12th November for the terrible security situation in Nigeria,” explained Nwosu, archbishop of the Province of Aba, adding he wanted Anglicans across the communion to join them.Just last week at least seven people were killed and dozens injured in a suicide bombing during Mass at a Roman Catholic church in Kaduna, northern Nigeria. An explosive-laden vehicle drove into the church and detonated its load, ripping a hole in the wall and roof.Yisa said that this was not an isolated incident. “Churches are being bombed every Sunday, especially in the northern part [of the country]. The situation is that people are refusing to go to church,” he said, “or when they go to church they don’t know whether they’ll return home. Services during the week are disrupted, people are afraid to worship.“This should not just be a matter of concern for the church in Nigeria, but for the whole Anglican Communion.”Yisa, who along with Nwosu and Okorie, had just finished Bible study in the nave of Auckland’s Holy Trinity Cathedral, said: “Imagine you’re doing this Bible study and somebody comes in and starts to spray worshipers [with bullets]…”Nwosu, bishop of Umuahia diocese, said he believed that those who were behind the violence were being funded by parties outside Nigeria, and said he appealed to Anglicans around the world also to lobby their governments to intervene in this situation.

This project is located on a steep rocky waterfront parcel on the west shore of San Juan Island in Washington. An existing house was already on the accessible location; the only remaining spot for the Studio was on a rocky shelf above and behind the residence. Save this picture!Courtesy of Prentiss ArchitectsThe client, a professional weaver, and her husband are preparing to move to San Juan Island once the husband retires. Their request was for studio space in which she could have all her weaving tools in one facility: her looms, her dying facilities, the sewing and assembly area and an office. She would use this space for her craft but also to hold weaving guild meetings and display her work. Save this picture!Courtesy of Prentiss ArchitectsIn addition to the programmatic requirements of the studio they wanted to have an overflow bedroom for guests. Save this picture!Courtesy of Prentiss ArchitectsThe solution is a generous main studio space flowing with natural light that provides ample display space while maintaining incremental views of the sound. Off of this space the auxiliary spaces have been defined by the folding back of the exterior shell: to one end a bath and office, to the other a “wet room”. The wet room could be closed off and opened to the exterior in order to allow fumes from dying and drying to not permeate the rest of the studio. Save this picture!Courtesy of Prentiss ArchitectsTwo additional spaces, the sewing room and a guest bedroom appear as an extrusion of the main studio space set into the hill at the back of the studio. A series of sliding panels intended as display panels for weaving projects hide or reveal access to the back rooms and storage cabinets.Project gallerySee allShow less’Palladio at Work’ Exhibition at The Canadian Centre for ArchitectureArticlesTop 10 States for LEED Green Buildings in 2010Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/118485/weaving-studio-prentiss-architects Clipboard Weaving Studio / Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects “COPY”center_img United States Weaving Studio / Prentiss + Balance + Wickline ArchitectsSave this projectSaveWeaving Studio / Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects Save this picture!Courtesy of Prentiss Architects+ 17 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/118485/weaving-studio-prentiss-architects Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY”last_img read more

Easterbrook House / Dorrington Atcheson Architects

Taking its design cues from the utilitarian forms of a tent and a shed, this Titirangi home for an extended family is a duo of compact buildings that uses a humble set of materials to allow the landscape its rightful place in the scheme.Save this picture!© Emma-Jane HetheringtonSited for sun, seclusion and views of the surrounding bush, the main dwelling and its ‘mini me’ cousin share an aesthetic and similar planning.  The primary home is conceived as a barn-like pavilion with bedrooms for adults and kids at opposite ends. A canopy-like roof is strung between these more-solid bookends like a tarpaulin.Save this picture!© Emma-Jane HetheringtonA modest footprint of 120-square-metres called for meticulous planning with no wasted space. Although the rectangular shape is only 4 metres wide, the soaring mono-pitch roof and full-height glazing brings a feeling of capaciousness to the main living zone. A split-truss roof allows an external pergola to shade the home in summer and clerestory windows bring in low winter light. The low-key palette of glulam beams, plywood walls and ceilings, aluminium joinery and concrete floors lends a casual holiday feel.Save this picture!Floor PlanA sunken lounge in the open-plan living zone is a modern take on the conversation pit and this change in level demarcates the space. Built-in furniture helped with space saving and includes an entertainment unit as well as an L-shaped banquette backed by bookshelves. Off the kitchen, a set of cavity sliders demarcates a spare bedroom or office. Board-and-batten detailing on this insertion further defines this zone and brings the barn-like exterior detailing indoors.Save this picture!© Emma-Jane HetheringtonBuilt-in bunks in the kids’ bedrooms can readily be converted to a desk – an aspect which future proofs the home for a growing family.

Advertisementcenter_img Howard Lake | 14 October 2006 | News Maureen Harrison, Chair of the Institute of Fundraising Scotland, said: “Everyone in the Institute and the sector as a whole will be happy and relieved that we finally have closure on this matter. “The abhorrent actions of this individual did inflict short-time damage on the sector but it did not take long for charities, fundraisers and donors to rally round and bring donations back to the traditionally high levels here in Scotland. If we want to look for a positive aspect of this case it is that it went some way to speeding up the passage of the Charities Act and we are just now settling into a system where we have a new charity regulator, the self-regulation of fundraising, and a far safer environment in which donors can give. “The great challenge now is for everyone involved in fundraising to make this system work, and when it does, I’ve no doubt everyone will see the rewards.”A full statement will be made following Mr Freeman’s sentencing on 31 October.

Comic Book Store Redefined

first_img When it comes to comics, there are two types of readers: the hard-core fanatics and the casual ones.Collector’s Paradise caters to both but focuses on the casual reader.“We’re a different type of store, different from many comic book stores that you see. Most comic book stores sell a lot of older comics, older toys, and dusty collectibles in addition to the new releases that come out. We pride ourselves on being sort of different,” says Edward Greenberg, owner of Collector’s Paradise.Different in a way that the store doesn’t stock up on old back issues like other comic stores; instead it focuses on the “bookstore model; comics that come out monthly as periodicals and a huge selection of graphic novels, plus related merchandise, like toys, statues and art.” says Greenberg.[smooth=id:126;]“We don’t consider ourselves a Comic Book Store, we call ourselves a Comic Bookstore,” he adds.In short, Collector’s Paradise focuses more on the reading aspect of the hobby as opposed to just the collecting/investing aspect.Greenberg also tells us how his shop stands out from the rest by not looking like a “stereotypical comic book store with a bunch of older products, mixed fixtures and hand-written signs”. Instead, Collector’s Paradise stores look like a proper bookstore with fixtures that match each other, original art and prints on the walls, and an overall very sharp appearance. Not like some stores that looks like someone’s garage with posters and toys displayed without rhyme nor reason. The San Fernando Valley branch even has a dedicated Art Gallery attached.This distinction of image makes Collector’s Paradise much more inviting to casual readers.“We kind of try to focus on a professional clientele that like to read comic books and graphic novels as a form of literature as opposed to the old school collectors who just like to collect long runs of comic books,” explains Greenberg. “We do have a lot of collectibles in the store, but one does not have to be a collector to feel comfortable walking in.”Collector’s Paradise’s unique approach to the hobby even extends to how they celebrate the yearly National Free Comic Book Day event. “Every first Saturday in May, most stores do an event called Free Comic Book Day. They buy a bunch of comics really, really cheap from the publishers, books that are specially created for this event, and they give them out to people who walk in the store that day, as a way to promote reading comics.” says Greenberg.But true to its unique nature, instead of Free Comic Book Day, Collector’s Paradise celebrates Free Comic Book MAY.“We’re giving away the comics, like everyone else, but we’re also doing it for a whole month. I think that’s a huge thing that nobody’s done in Los Angeles. We don’t call it Free Comic Book Day, we call it Free Comic Book MAY,” says Greenberg.It is Free Comic Book May because people can get free books every Saturday in May. But the store also does more than just give away free comics, when people come in. Collector’s Paradise will have comic creators to sign the books, a variety from local to the world-renowned.“First of all, we create a huge event on May 4th, there’s a huge talent signing in each store and we have guys like J. Michael Straczynski, creator of Babylon 5; Whilce Portacio, one of the biggest artists in the industry and co-founder of Image Comics, the third largest publisher in comics. He’s coming, plus a bunch of other really super talented people,” says Greenberg. These signing events continue for the rest of the month, on Saturdays, at both stores, with many local creators showcasing their books in the stores.Perhaps what makes Collector’s Paradise all the more endearing, is the fact that it does its part in giving back to the community.Partnering with the Pasadena Public Library and other Pasadena organizations, the store does events like “Pasadena LitFest as a way to expand comic books awareness in the community. We’re establishing a relationship with the Pasadena City College. We’re all about being in the community and love to work with local organizations and have sponsored several charity events in the Pasadena Area,” Greenberg enthuses.Greenberg also says that they will be on hand to give out free books not just in his store, but in the Pasadena Public Library as well. He says on “May 4th when people go to check out Free Comic Book Day, we will be there at the library giving out books. One of our favorite creators, Mike Kunkel, of “Herobear and the Kid” is going to be there to sign books for kids and do sketches.”Greenberg adds, “If you go to the Pasadena Library and check out a graphic novel there to read, those very likely come from us. Many of their graphic novels have been purchased by the library from us in the last two years.”The partnership between Collector’s Paradise and the Pasadena Public Library is an ongoing relationship, Greenberg says, and “we want to do that with other organizations. Anybody who wants to start a relationship with our stores can call us and talk about it.”Collector’s Paradise Pasadena is located at 319 S. Arroyo Prkwy #4, while the original branch is in San Fernando Valley, at 7131 Winnetka Ave in Canoga Park.
