HSBC did well, but fellow emerging markets player Standard Chartered saw one of the biggest falls in the day’s trading after warning that its costs were growing faster than its income while it invested in new branches and hiring new staff. Increasing competition for workers and higher compliance and regulatory costs also hurt its performance, Standard Chartered’s pre-close trading update said. 

BG Group was supported by its announcement that technical costs for the initial phase of development at its Tupi and Guará fields in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil, would be “very low”.The company expects to gain 600 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe) from the fields. High street chains Next and Marks & Spencer found the going tough, showing some of the biggest falls on the FTSE100. It was a similar story at mid-cap retailers Kesa, WH Smith and Debenhams in the FTSE250.European markets were buoyed by optimism over Japan’s 1.1 per cent third quarter growth, revised upwards from 0.9 per cent; and by US tax cut proposals.And the region’s banks improved, with Societe Generale, Banco de Sabadell and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria surging higher. 
But carmakers BMW, Volkswagen, Peugeot and Renault saw shares fall after the China Automobile Industry Association announced it may stop tax incentives for buying passenger cars in 2011.The CAC 40 in Paris finished up 26 at 3,858, the German DAX 40 ended 12 lower at 6,964 and the Spanish IBEX 35 was up 107 at 10,186.A weak morning session on Wall Street did London no favours, despite a raft of new US data showing a strengthening recovery.The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq edged up but capped their gains over uncertainty over the proposed tax-cut legislation and a recent rise in bond yields.By 4pm local time, the Dow Jones was up 7.46 to 11,363; the Nasdaq 100 had risen 0.65 to 2,201.25 and the broader S&P 500 was up 4.46 points to 1,232.74.

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. If I had a lump sum of £500 to invest right now, I’d put the money into buying a basket of UK shares. There are a couple of possible strategies to achieve this. So today, I’m going to explain the approach I’d use. 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…How I’d invest £500 First of all, I’d buy UK shares right now because they appear to be dirt cheap. According to some analysts, UK stocks are trading at their most significant discount to international peers since the 1980s. Of course, there are some reasons for this discrepancy. The potential disruption from Brexit and the bleak outlook for the UK economy from the pandemic are big enough reasons to scare away most investors. However, I think there are also plenty of reasons to be cheerful about the outlook for UK shares. For example, many companies are seeing booming profits, thanks to technological disruption.What’s more, businesses with considerable international divisions are unlikely to be as impacted by Brexit as the rest of the market. More than 70% of the FTSE 100‘s profits come from outside the UK, which makes this a very international index.With all of the above in mind, I reckon UK shares currently present an attractive proposition for investors. UK shares to buy I’d invest in London-listed equities using a diversified approach. A lump sum of £500 is enough to get started. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to build a diversified portfolio of shares. For a portfolio to be truly diversified, it needs around 30 shares. After all costs and charges are taken into account, it’s not economical to have less than £2.5k devoted to each holding. However, one way to get around this issue is to use an investment fund. A FTSE 100 tracker fund, for example, would allow for an investment of £500 in 100 different businesses at the click of a button. And because these funds pool billions of pounds of investors’ money, the costs of buying these holdings is incredibly low. I would buy an FTSE All-Share tracker with my lump sum. These funds track the performance of the FTSE All-Share, which is made up of the 600 largest UK shares. I think this would provide the best of both worlds — growth from smaller companies, as well as the stability and international diversification of blue-chips. Individual investmentsAnother option I might consider to invest £500 is to use an investment trust. These have similar qualities to investment funds. They allow investors to own a basket of stocks at the click of a button. However, they provide access to a broader range of assets.One of the largest is RIT Capital Partners. This investment trust owns a portfolio of private companies, hedge funds and real estate. It would be virtually impossible for the average investor to build a similar portfolio with just £500. But RIT provides that option. Of course, investing £500 in individual UK shares is also an option. But investors need to be careful which stocks are acquired. Some have much better prospects than others.  I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Recently completed, the house stands elevated on a hillside neighbourhood of single-storey houses on the fringe of MacRitchie Forest Reserve.Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangThe screen comprises two layers of mature hollow bamboo sections specially ordered from a Javanese bamboo forest. Each section of 150mm in diameter were cut to length, cleaned and left in its natural finish. Suspended with a wire clip to a hanging bar, the bamboo sways in the slightest breeze and gently collides much like a giant wind chime, making the house both visually and aurally responsive to the weather. They can be hand adjusted to create a selected view or a privacy screen. The sound of the bamboo curtain varies through the day, a low timbre registers of the passage of the prevailing morning and evening breezes. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangIn practical terms the bamboo curtain is a perfect climactic screen that effectively dispels the heat of Singapore’s tropical sun from penetrating the house. During heavy rainstorms, common during the monsoon season, the screen also reduces horizontal driving rain. The increasing din of the colliding bamboo curtain reminds its occupants to the on- set of a rainstorm and hence to close doors and windows.Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangThe Bamboo Curtain House is owned and designed by Sim Boon Yang of the award-winning eco.id Architects based in Singapore. Following a minimalist principle of rational simplicity, he designed the house as a box, organised into four equal bays that accommodated the lifestyle of his family of five.Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangAn attempt to build the house with the least number of processes meant a recurring palette of natural unfinished bamboo, the ‘off form’ concrete walls and ceilings, black granite and smoked oak floors: a deliberate juxtaposition of roughhewn masculinity with warm and refined finishes. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangEnvironmental consideration also figures in the design of the house. In addition to the bamboo screens and skylights, the roof pavilion is installed with a solar hot water system and incorporates a rain water collection system that channels rainfall into an underground cistern. Because of the tropical monsoon rains that fall over Singapore, a substantial volume of water can be collected for the usage of the house. The roof over the master bedroom suite is sowed with a wild grass lawn that insulates it from solar gains.Descriptive Walk-Through Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangA 15m lap pool anchors the front edge of the house. It amplifies the vista out from the main living and dining spaces reflecting the sky and trees and creating a sense of retreat in an otherwise dense neighborhood. Forest trees were planted to suggest that the forest reserve cascaded down onto the site. The 4 m tall entrance doors features a black bamboo handle in its natural colour and finish. The foyer is guarded by a tiger painting on an old Tibetan door. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangThe dining area is linked to the kitchen by a stone clad portal that frames the bar and a pair of carved wooden ‘nagas’ of Thai origin. The dining table is 3m slab of rain tree wood sitting on custom designed steel legs that echo the splay of the architectural plans. Save this picture!elevationThe main stairs leading up to the bedrooms act as a display stage. The house is experienced as a series of unfolding settings for the owners diverse collection of Asian arts and artefacts. They include tribal canoe paddles from Irian Jaya, antique wood and stone carvings and a variety of animal skulls. Save this picture!© Sim Boon YangArriving on the second floor, narrow skylight floods a double-height gallery with natural light yet limiting much direct solar ingress. A FicusLyrata tree in a pot thrives here. It has the spatial qualities of an indoor courtyard leading to the bedrooms. A row of book shelves house a small library, along with photographs and Asian artefacts.In the master bathroom, black bamboo (a species of naturally dark hued bamboo) is suspended below a glass skylight and acts as a backdrop to the bathroom. Open sides allow breezes that flow through the bamboo curtain creating a beautiful scintillating effect. The vanity top is a slab of ‘lychee’ wood sitting on trestle legs. An antique mirror leans against a wall clad with silver travertine completing an important room in the house.Project gallerySee allShow lessKhokak Panoram Resort / FCHY Architect Lab, C2H3.chArticlesVideo: Ames Boston HotelArticles Share Houses Architects: Eco-id Architects Area Area of this architecture project The Bamboo Curtain House / Eco-id Architectslast_img read more

Good houses are artifacts that are crafted to conquer land as much as they are devoted to distance their inhabitants – as much as possible – from it. This was clear in Chile since the time of the colonies, and one of the few truly Chilean inventions, the so-called Casa Chilena or Chilean house, is the built manifestation of this. It embodies the specific typology of a courtyard house used to organize the territory based on agricultural production, but also a specific kind of domestic life detached from it. Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliSave this picture!Ground floor plan (A2 esc. 1-100)Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliAnd it embodied a circular time that organized cyclical rituals around the courtyards, galleries and enfilades, parallel to the cyclical time that structured agricultural production. Since the second half of the 19th century, this type faded away, not so much because of the obsolescence of its spatial configuration, but more due to the banishment of the specific kind of life and land that it previously organized.Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliSave this picture!Section C (A4 esc. 1-100)Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliAddressing a different type of land—and life—this house is located in a former suburban lot, now subdivided into three smaller pieces. This process of densification exemplifies how an urban configuration expands outwards in Santiago, colonising and occupying previous strictly suburban land. The house occupies the 20 by 40-meter plot with a thin 4.8-meter bar, subdividing the property into a series of different courtyards.Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliEach interior space is connected, at least, with two exteriors, which are treated, simultaneously, as interiors though their large built furniture and materiality. Negotiating the irregular shape of the plot with the regular geometry of the house, its limit is set back a few meters behind the property line, and a walled courtyard elbows out from the continuous line defining the sidewalk.Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliOvercoming the regulations promoting a garden city, the façade becomes a walled courtyard, bringing life to the edge of the otherwise life-less suburban street.Save this picture!© William RojasSave this picture!First floor plan (A2 esc. 1-100)Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliA calibrated system of sliding and pivoting doors mediates life in the house. They enhance various forms of connection and disconnection between interiors and exteriors, but also between interiors and interiors. Through doors, two widely used architectural reductions are overcome: the open plan and the corridor.Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliDoors allow subdivision and differentiation, but also flexibility and contamination among domestic programs. Kitchen, dining and living rooms, and patios can be combined into a single space or can be temporary divided depending on the season or whatnot.Save this picture!© Erieta AttaliThe interior surfaces of the suspended volume are defined by a weaving of different kinds of wood, creating a relentless repetition of constructive elements covering walls, floors, and ceilings. 5-centimetre thick prefabricated black concrete panels hang from the wooden structure rendering the house completely opaque to the exterior.

Two journalists given prison sentences a week before World Press Freedom Day

first_img CameroonAfrica News News Organisation News May 19, 2021 Find out more April 23, 2021 Find out more CameroonAfrica Follow the news on Cameroon Two journalists given prison sentences a week before World Press Freedom DayReporters Without Borders expressed concern at the continuing practice of jailing journalists in Cameroon for press offences, as a court sentenced two journalists to five months in jail and a fine of five million francs CFA (7,620 euros) for defamation.”Exposing serious abuses in an article does not constitute a crime, even in Cameroon,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Editor of the newspaper, L’œil du Sahel, Guibaï Gatama and his journalist colleague Abdoulaye Oumaté were sentenced in their absence by a court in Maroua on 26 April 2005. They had exposed “abuses and extortion practised on the people by the security forces” in an article that appeared in January 2005 headlined Fotokol: the gendarmes block the road. Neither journalist attended court, for fear of arrest, and one of them is believed to have fled the country.In his article, Abdoulaye Oumaté condemned “the mafia gendarmes of the Fotokol brigade, who on the pretext of fighting ‘road-block gangs” roam the region robbing citizens.” A defamation complaint was subsequently lodged by the captain of the brigade.Reporters Without Borders said it also regretted that the court administration was not doing more to try to recover the court file which had mysteriously disappeared from the court clerk’s office, preventing the journalists from lodging an appeal.L’oeil du Sahel, a regional weekly that was launched in Maroua in 1998, is one of the few newspapers to appear in the region.

Twists and turns to Rathcahill farm dispute

first_imgPrint On July 29, Daniel Doherty was sent to Limerick Prison after failing to obey a court order handed down in March, 2010, stating that he was to remove his cattle from the land and vacate the adjacent dwellings. Failing to do so, Eamon Roche, administrator for the deceased brothers who died without leaving a will, initiated court proceedings to have the order upheld and acted upon.Doherty was arrested under warrant and brought before Judge Carroll Moran at Limerick Circuit Court, to seek resolution.On August 5, the farmer was asked repeatedly if he would vacate the lands and expressing that he did not wish to “go against Mattie’s wishes”, said he would not, and that he intended staying there with his 15 head of dry stock and single milking cow. Judge Carroll Moran said he was left with no option but to hold Doherty in contempt of court and sent him to Limerick Prison until he was willing to purge his contempt. Barrister Emmett O’Brien, sought the assistance of the court to have the cattle removed from the land but he noted that the Roche family were unwilling to do this without the assistance of the gardai, as tensions were running high between the two parties.Last week, Doherty remained in prison and his cattle were removed, despite barricades and obstructions placed in front of the farmyard entrance. With reports of men in balaclavas watching on as the gardai secured the farm to allow the removal of the cattle, the tale of the Rathcahill farm was to take several more twists in the days that followed.Tracked to a farm some six miles away, the cattle were escorted by gardai off the disputed lands and the matter was thought to have been somewhat resolved.However, just 24 hours later, solicitor for the Roche family, Michael O’Donnell, said that five cattle were back on the land, something that seemed quite mysterious to him given the six mile distance between the two farmsteads. The prolonged dispute, dating back to 2004, took yet another twist the next day as solicitor for the Roche family, Michael O’Donnell, confirmed to the Limerick Post, that the five returned cattle were removed again. “This will go on for some time I think, this is not the end to the matter,” he noted. “Daniel remains in prison and he looks set to stay there for some time to come,” added the Rathkeale- based solicitor.Daniel Doherty has always protested his rights to the land after he argued that he assisted the two bachelor brothers on the farm land.
