Innovations within the sector have accelerated the progress of the Covid-19 vaccine. But what about treatments unrelated to the pandemic? I’ve found a FTSE small-cap biotech stock whose share price has jumped more than 60% in only a few months.Why is the stock surging? And should I add this company to my growth portfolio? Let’s take a look.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…FTSE small-cap: a biotech stock with hidden potentialPureTech Health (LSE:PRTC) discovers, develops, and commercialises new treatments for diseases that affect the brain, immune system and gut.A common problem with young biotech companies is finding the necessary funding to develop new medicines. After all, the process is long and expensive, with a high chance of failing to deliver a viable product. But this FTSE small-cap stock has found an intriguing solution.The business comprises two pipelines. The first is called Wholly Owned, which, as the name suggests, develops new drugs entirely owned by PureTech. The second pipeline is where things get interesting, in my opinion.It’s called Founded Entities and is essentially a portfolio of nine independent businesses of which PureTech is a major stakeholder. What’s more, some of these businesses, such as Karuna Therapeutics, are actually listed on the stock exchange themselves. So, whenever PureTech needs to raise additional capital to fund its own drug development, it can sell some of its shares.Combining both pipelines, PureTech has 23 product candidates in its portfolio, 14 of which are already in clinical trial phases, with another two on the market today.Drug development is riskyThe biotech stock has an extensive portfolio of products in its pipelines. And while most have either entered or are entering clinical trial phases, there’s a considerable level of risk to consider.Firstly, none of the drugs in its Wholly Owned pipeline have been FDA approved as they are mostly in phase 1 trials. And given that the typical drug development cycle lasts around 10 years, it could be some time before any of these products yield tangible returns. And that’s assuming they don’t fail along the way.Today, the firm generates all of its profits from Founded Entities through stock sales and royalty income on two FDA-approved medicines. The remaining products are once again at various clinical trials stages, although there are two in their final phases.The highly regulated nature of the drug development industry protects the health of patients. But it also makes it incredibly difficult to release new treatments. Even if a new medicine is approved, there’s still the chance that it won’t be economically viable. For example, PureTech’s new drugs may not be covered by health insurance policies or government health authorities.The bottom lineThis FTSE small-cap biotech stock undoubtedly has a significant level of risk attached to it, especially since the business is currently structured more like a holding company, as opposed to a regular biotech stock.But over the long term, PureTech looks like a solid business in my eyes. It has a vast portfolio of potential products and is set to continue receiving royalties from treatments designed and developed by other firms. This is one biotech stock I’d add to my growth portfolio.

Relocation of a young family to the owner’s childhood community prompted our client to build a new house on a partially platformed site in Westville, Durban RSA. A substantial piece of land was procured with view to developing additional houses in the long term, offering extraordinary views of the Palmiet Nature Reserve and the opportunity for their children to walk to the local school. A productive engagement of the couple yielded an interesting brief accommodating a house, guest studio and ancillary accommodation.Save this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographySave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographyOf paramount importance was respect for the environment, with a particular directive to create a home that, while large in scale, displayed a relatively understated architectural character. A large level garden to play cricket, a courtyard to promote tennis practice and a pool large enough for swimming training were sporting priorities. Open, permeable living spaces with a focal kitchen as the centroid of the house, together with four interesting bedrooms, were clear desires. And a love of the African bush drove the requirement for extensive outdoor connectivity, the selected materiality and interior furnishings.Save this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographyWith many options for siting the house, a crucial driver was to ensure that the remarkable location was fully embraced. The building was consequently positioned on an existing platform on the southern edge providing the best prospect, unfettered views and becoming an extension of the adjacent nature reserve complete with indigenous wildlife. Simple planning and a two level arrangement with sleeping spaces above and living spaces below were early decisions, delivering an anchor to which the ancillary accommodation is appended. All living spaces are open, connecting to northern outdoor terraces, east facing elevated deck, pool and generous lawns.Save this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographySave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographyClarity of structure using a hybrid of conventional masonry and concrete with light steel framed elements and a boldly expressed roof characterizes the approach. The layering of spaces linearly facilitates a continuous liminality from all living and sleeping spaces. Central to the spatial development is the kitchen, the heart of the house, enjoying a pivotal double-volume space. The master bedroom set on the eastern edge of the house is separated from the children’s bedrooms and media space via a gallery and double-volume living space. The vertical connectivity is overtly announced at the entrance and becomes a key aspect in the spatial legibility of the house.Save this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographyThe design intention was to create a truly African home with a sensitive contextual integration. Simple sustainability methods were deployed in an appreciation of the local microclimate, orientation and rectangular plan form. A strategy to use large over-sailing roofs with a suspended elevated veranda structure and sliding folding shutters generated the basis of the passive climatic response. The filter solution to the envelope was successfully and extensively used to generate privacy, security and promote cooling. Air-conditioning was entirely discarded in favor of natural ventilation and the inclusion of grey water treatment, extensive rainwater harvesting and a rooftop PV array to serve essential appliances were introduced as active solutions. Conceptually this house is a further addition to EPA’s oeuvre of climatically responsive houses.Save this picture!© Karl Beath PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessSigma Coffee / Atelier WatersideSelected ProjectsAn Australian Tiny Home / CABNSelected Projects Share Projects Electrical Engineers: Save this picture!© Karl Beath Photography+ 24Curated by Hana Abdel Share House M / Elphick Proome ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse M / Elphick Proome Architects South Africa ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/956453/house-m-elphick-proome-architects Clipboard Photographs:  Karl Beath Photography Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Uys and White Houses Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Hansgrohe, Catalano, FRANKE, Serge Ferrari, Ceasar Stone, Cini & Nills, Dorma, Hillaldam “COPY” Photographscenter_img AECOM Landscape: 2016 AECOM Quantity Surveyor: CopyHouses•Westville, South Africa House M / Elphick Proome Architects Architects: Elphick Proome Architects Area Area of this architecture project Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/956453/house-m-elphick-proome-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeElphick Proome ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWestvilleOn FacebookSouth AfricaPublished on February 08, 2021Cite: “House M / Elphick Proome Architects ” 07 Feb 2021.

Life without water in New York City’s towers

first_imgOn 14th Street in Manhattan, Oct. 29.New York — The 650,000 Con Edison customers in lower Manhattan without power don’t have water either unless they have hooked up a generator to their pumps.  Some of these “customers” are not individuals, but entire apartment buildings or complexes with hundreds or even thousands of residents.In New York City, most buildings supply water to their tenants from a water tower on the top of the building. A few pump the water directly to each apartment.While the image of Manhattan is that of sleek, modern, extremely high-priced apartments, many poor and working people live in the city’s public housing on either the western or eastern edges of the island.   Now they have to try to get by without water.The rule of thumb is a gallon of water a day, 8 pounds per person — to drink, wash or flush.  For an elderly, frail person, carrying 8 pounds up 10 or 20 flights or even two flights of stairs is impossible.  Even if one is fit and hardy, carrying the 40 pounds needed by a family of five is a difficult task.Some tenants who remember past electric outages filled up bathtubs and pots in anticipation of the storm.  However, after five days, the water they saved is running out.The NYC and state administrations have recognized the need for water — and food — by setting up some distribution centers in a few poor neighborhoods five days after Hurricane Sandy struck New York.  Neighbors and family members help the elderly carry their water and food home.Church and progressive organizations had begun similar distributions earlier and some stores are giving passersby the food that they would otherwise have had to throw away because it is spoiling without refrigeration.What is really needed is a program that would supply generators to run the pumps for all the Con Edison customers without power.  Then with the water flowing, the next step would be to get food to the people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

New York: ‘Strong rent laws now!’

first_img“We are tired of being displaced, extorted, harassed and ignored. We will continue to bring our grievances to the doorsteps of the powers-that-be until we are heard. New York City is facing a massive housing crisis, and the stakes are now higher than ever. On June 15, NYC’s rent regulation laws are set to expire,” stated protest organizers led by Brooklyn’s Crown Heights Tenants Union.Blocking four lanes on East 3rd Street near Gov. Cuomo’s Midtown Manhattan office on May 28, determined protesters held a huge banner reading “Cuomo: Strong Rent Laws Now” and “Housing Justice Is Racial Justice.” Fliers were distributed to motorists explaining why the protest brought traffic to a standstill.Several TV stations and newspaper reporters rushed to cover this while the police came much later. Connecting the need for affordable housing with New York’s long history of racist housing policies, the flier mentioned landlords’ history of redlining policies and how now the developers seek to cash in on gentrification, as they deny tenants their rights in an attempt to evict them.NYC’s vacancy decontrol provisions eliminated 300,000 rent-regulated apart­ments where the majority of tenants are working class and people of color. The protesters’ statement offered: “This is why, as low income communities of color, we are taking matters into our own hands. With the recent upsurge of the Black Lives Matter movement, we have seen that the only way policymakers listen to disenfranchised people is when we take to the streets and disrupt business as usual. Cuomo has the power to change rent laws by June 15th in favor of low and moderate income New Yorkers.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Open letter to president, parliament and supreme court calling for repeal of legal hangover from military regime

first_img Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil RSF_en BrazilAmericas News Organisation Help by sharing this information Mr. Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva, President of the Federal Republic of BrazilMs. Dilma Roussef, Minister of the PresidencyMr. Renan Calheiros, President of the SenateMr. Jader Barbalho, President of the Chamber of Deputies Commission for Science, Technology, Communication and ComputingMr. Nelson Jobim, President of the Federal Supreme CourtDear Madam, Dear Sirs,Reporters Without Borders has learned with concern of the plight of Lúcio Flávio Pinto, the founder and editor of the bimonthly Jornal Pessoal, based in Belém, in the northern state of Pará, who is currently the target of 18 lawsuits, ten of them for libel, as a result of covering such sensitive issues as drug trafficking, Amazonian deforestation and local corruption. He has also been threatened and physically attacked. Obliged to stay at home and organise his defence, he will be unable to attend a ceremony in New York at the end of the month at which he is to receive a prize. Worse still, he faces up to three years in prison if two existing convictions are confirmed on appeal. He was convicted under the press law of 9 February 1967, the law under which all the other actions have been brought against him.Mr. Pinto is not the only journalist to have been assailed under this law. José de Arimatéia Azevedo, the manager of the Portal AZ website in Teresina (in the northeastern state of Piauí), was arrested on 26 October 2005 and held for 48 hours for “insult and libel” and “pressure on the course of a judicial procedure.” Alvanir Ferreira Avelino of the daily newspaper Dois Estados, was arrested on 29 August 2003 in Rio de Janeiro state and sentenced to 10 and a half months in an open prison as a result of libel actions. He served a similar sentence in 2001 for a “crime of opinion.”It is time to finish with this iniquitous law which, although rarely applied, is nonetheless incorporated into the Brazilian federal constitution and continues to weigh heavily on free expression as a whole and press freedom in particular.Is it normal for a law inherited from military rule (the military regime of 1964-1985) to be still in force in a democracy after all this time? The situation is all the more absurd as Brazil, like almost all the countries in the Americas, signed the Declaration of Chapultepec of 11 March 1994 on free expression, which was dawn up by the Inter-American Press Association. Among other things, this declaration recognises that it is the role of the press to challenge the government, but the 1967 law does not let the Brazilian press perform this role.The incompatibility of the 1967 law with current laws, case history and treaties is not the only issue. The danger lies in the letter of the law itself, which gives often elastic definitions of press offences and makes them punishable by prison sentences.Article 14, for example, says that “war propaganda, procedures to subvert the political and social order, or race or class prejudice” are punishable by one to four years in prison. Hunting down “subversion” is the prerogative of repressive regimes. And should editorials be likened these days to propaganda?Article 17 envisages a sentence of one to three years in prison and a fine equivalent to one to 20 times the minimum salary for “offending public decency and moral standards.” What are the current limits of “public decency” and “moral standards” ?Similar penalties are stipulated for “slander” (article 20), “defamation” (article 21) and “insult” (articles 22) and even “defamation and insult of the memory of the dead” (articles 24). These offence are treated as “crimes.” Article 23 increases the penalties by a third if any of the offences mentioned in articles 20-22 is committed against: – the president of the republic, the president of the federal senate, the president of the chamber of deputies, the judges of the federal supreme court, foreign heads of state or government or their diplomatic representatives.- a public official, in his or her official capacity.- an entity or authority that perform the role of a state authority.This article is not just contrary to the Declaration of Chapultepec, it also constitutes a serious negation of the news media’s role to criticise the authorities and offers an easy way of silencing journalists, especially those working for local newspapers. The 1967 law is all the more unfair as it is used against “small” media which generally have few resources. Furthermore, and paradoxically, it is used above all in the state courts and very little at the federal court level.All of these reasons should lead you now to repeal the press law of 9 February 1967, of which higher court of justice president Edson Vidigal has on several occasions said it has been “implicitly rendered invalid by the 1988 constitution.”We hope a broad democratic debate followed by a parliamentary vote will achieve this goal.Sincerely,Reporters Without Borders BrazilAmericas Lúcio Flávio Pinto (photo), the editor of the bimonthly Jornal Pessoal in Belém, in the northern state of Pará, is currently the target of 18 lawsuits under the 1967 press law. In an open letter to the president, parliament and judiciary, Reporters Without Borders calls for the repeal of this iniquitous law that is a hangover from the (1964-1985) military dictatorship. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies April 15, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News Reports May 13, 2021 Find out more News April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America November 21, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to president, parliament and supreme court calling for repeal of legal hangover from military regime to go further Follow the news on Brazillast_img read more

Roxana Saberi about to be freed

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders welcomes a Tehran appeal court’s decision to reduce Roxana Saberi’s eight-year jail term to a suspended two-year sentence. Her lawyer, Saleh Nikbakhat, confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that she could be freed later today. In a closed hearing yesterday, the court’s judges noted that Iran and the United States “are not at war.”—————-10.05.2009 – Court hears Roxana Saberi’s appeal, urged to quash her conviction on spying chargeA Tehran appeal court today heard Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi’s appeal against her conviction on a charge of spying for the United States. The hearing was closed but, unlike the original trial, which resulted in Saberi getting an eight-year jail sentence, it lasted several hours and Saberi’s lawyers were able to present arguments in her defence. The appeal court is expected to issue its ruling in a few days.“The short space of time between the original trial and the appeal, the length of the appeal hearing and the fact that her lawyers were allowed to speak in her defence are all encouraging signs,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But we must not jump to conclusions as the Iranian judicial system often produces surprises.”The press freedom organisation added : “We had urged the authorities to allow Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi of the Human Rights Defenders Centre to attend the hearing but they did not. If this court is to render justice to Saberi, it must quash her conviction and free her without delay.”Reporters Without Borders spoke to Saberi’s two lawyers – Saleh Nikbakhat and Abdolsamad Khoramshahi – after today’s hearing. Nikbakhat said he was “confident and optimistic.” He was able to speak for almost two hours, presenting arguments based on past cases of journalists who have been acquitted of spying charges. “If the court takes account of these arguments, Roxana will have to be freed,” he said, adding that, “although the hearing was closed, the court adhered to the law.” Khoramshahi, who also said he was “optimistic”, added that the court had week to issue its verdict.The daughter of an Iranian father who lives in the United States and who acquired US citizenship, Saberi moved to Iran six years ago and worked for various international news media including the BBC, Fox News and the US public radio network NPR. Arrested at the end of January, she was initially accused of working illegally as a journalist but was finally tried on a spying charge, one the Iranian authorities often use to silence journalists.Several Iranian-American citizens, including journalists, have been arrested in Iran in recent years but Saberi is the first one to be tried and given a jail sentence. Her trial was held on 13 April and the sentence was issued five days later.Iran was ranked 166th out of 173 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. A wave of arrests on 1 May brought the total number of journalists and bloggers currently held in Iran to 14.

January 29, 2020 1,309 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will keep the federal funds rate at 1.5 to 1.75%, according to a statement following the latest Committee meeting. The Committee cited a strong labor market and moderately rising economic activity.“Markets anticipated the Fed’s stance in the wake of the bank’s December meeting. As investors anticipate rising risks in markets, demand for bonds is likely to remain solid, keeping mortgage rates on a sideways trajectory in the months ahead,” said realtor.com’s Senior Economist George Ratiu. “Rates are about 80 basis points below last year, offering first-time buyers favorable home financing. However, the number of homes available for sale have reached a two-year low, adding headwinds to the housing market.”While interest rates are low, following multiple decreases from the Fed in 2019, some homeowners and potential buyers would still like to see them fall further. Of the three most popular government actions among first-time homebuyers—lowering interest rates, providing tax credits, and easing lending standards—lower interest rates are the most popular option, Redfin reports, especially among buyers with annual incomes of less than $100,000.
