Enter Your Email Address With it having such a large market cap, Tesla’s fortunes affect many other stocks. Given how influential Tesla is, it’s not out of the question that it indirectly affects Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) too. With Tesla shares declining from around $880 in late January to $563 on 8 March, here’s how I think it affects the Rolls-Royce share price.Tesla & Rolls-Royce In the past, I think demand for many electric-related stocks increased due to Tesla’s success. Although many electric stocks don’t really have anything in common with Tesla, some in the market probably thought they did (or anticipated the correlation) and bought shares of the companies. The buying somehow caused more buying and many electric stocks rallied when Tesla rallied.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…Given that air taxi stocks are electric, I reckon they benefited from Tesla’s success as well. This is despite Tesla not being an air taxi stock itself. I think Rolls-Royce could benefit if air taxi stocks are in high demand (despite Rolls-Royce also not being an air taxi stock itself — yet). If demand for air taxi stocks is strong, air taxi startups could find it easier to raise money. With more money, they could spend more on R&D and potentially bring a product to the mass market faster.If air taxis become market ready faster, demand for air taxi propulsion systems could increase faster. Assuming Rolls-Royce is the leader in air taxi propulsion systems like it wants to be in the future, RR could stand to benefit with more potential growth too. By that reasoning, Tesla shares falling could indirectly lower demand for air taxi stocks and indirectly negatively affect Rolls-Royce.Is it the case in practice?While the ‘Tesla affects Rolls-Royce’ fundamental reasoning sounds compelling, the Rolls-Royce share price hasn’t really reflected it. While Tesla shares have surged in 2020, for example, RR actually decreased substantially. As a result, I don’t think Tesla falling 35% from its highs actually affects the Rolls-Royce share price all that much.The market, in my view, seems to be more focused on Rolls-Royce’s civil aerospace business rather than its future potential air taxi propulsion business. Civil aviation gets more media attention, and Rolls-Royce’s near-term fundamentals depend a lot more on civil aviation than air taxi propulsion.The Rolls-Royce share price: what I’d doRolls-Royce has uncertainty. The Rolls-Royce share price might not do well if air travel doesn’t recover like the market expects. Given that it’s a new market, it’s also not clear if Rolls-Royce will succeed in the air taxi propulsion system market like the company has in the traditional jet engine market. The British company will likely have a lot of competition in that category.Nevertheless, I think the market isn’t really reflecting the potential value in Rolls-Royce’s air taxi propulsion business because it’s still in its very early stages. It also hasn’t gotten much press as management hasn’t really advertised it. As the technology progresses, however, I reckon the market perception of the British company’s air taxi propulsion business could increase. Given the business’ potential and the potential for air travel to eventually recover with the vaccine rollouts, I’d buy and hold shares at the current Rolls-Royce share price. Tesla has fallen 35%.

For this project, we were commissioned to build a second home for a husband-and-wife couple and their young son. The client requested a simple space that would allow him to take a step back from the daily demands of his busy schedule and help to rejuvenate his body and mind. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe site is located in Nasu highlands, a well-known summer resort area in Japan that lies at an altitude of 1,000m. Dense groves of deciduous trees can be found nearby, making the area a popular retreat during the sweltering summer months. In the winter, however, temperatures drop below freezing point, and snowfall of up to 80cm has been recorded. Elevation varies a total of 8m across the entire site running from east to west. Making use of this sloping gradient, we decided to design a residence that would create a sense of continuity with the forest around it. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe first step was to configure two volumes lying next to each other that corresponded to the contours of the terrain, and then to shift these volumes along both the horizontal and vertical axes. Through this process, we were able to create a level surface that could bridge the gap between the cross-section of the lodge and the forest outside it, while also prompting an awareness of changes in the topography of the site. The space that emerged as a result of this elevation difference and shifts in the surface of the floor showcases subtle variations in the size of each volume, the windows, and the quality of the light in each interior.  Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThis structure enabled us to endow what is essentially a single-roomed space with remarkable depth and variation. The dining and kitchen area, which opens directly onto the outdoor terrace and features an open stairwell, is situated in the southwest corner of the site, making it a fluid space with a distinctively bright, open quality.  Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe sliding doors at the corner of the dining and living area, which can be stowed inside the wall, give the boundaries between the interior and exterior of the lodge an ambiguous character. For the facade, special efforts were made to preserve the integrity of the forested landscape by installing exterior walls covered in cedar boards and a continuous series of slit windows. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaBy paying close attention to the possibilities presented by a given site, and giving spatial form to its distinctive qualities, we hope to be able to continue creating buildings that showcase the beauty that belongs to the realm of architecture Save this picture!Plan Level 01 The living room situated on the far eastern end of the site, on the other hand, is configured as a zone of peace and quiet where the family can gather around the fireplace. The loft, located on a mezzanine that lies above the living room, is a suspended space lying in mid-air that offers the inhabitants a commanding, elevated view of the trees outside the lodge.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Diller Scofidio + Renfro talk Hirshhorn “Bubble” on The Creators ProjectArticlesAurinkokivi School Awarded Proposal / Rudanko+KankkunenArticles Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/333457/tiered-lodge-naoi-architecture-design-office Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/333457/tiered-lodge-naoi-architecture-design-office Clipboard Houses 2011last_img read more

Due to the location, the house is openly visible from the village.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachThe local building regulations are straightforward, specifying mere general characteristics for the new houses, such as stone cladding, or sloped roofs with “arab” tiles. The main aim of these regulations is to lead new buildings to look like old rural houses, the so called Catalan “masias”.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachThe aim of the project was not to think of the “masia” as an isolated building, but as one that makes sense in a rural landscape and on the agricultural land. The traditional Catalan house would not make sense without its true agricultural context; even less when there are 20 similar houses in an area of just 10 hectares.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachTherefore, rather than portraying a traditional rural house, the project looks for another type of a relationship to the countryside, making a connection to the farm storages around this area.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricThe spatial organisation of the house follows the logic of a warehouse, generating a large volume within which smaller units are placed, to offer intimacy. Bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms are placed in “boxes” inside the “storage”. Between these, crossed views and circulations offer direct relationships to the landscape around the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachThe circulation space inside the house can be understood almost as an exterior space, while the boxes, are places for being “inside”. The height of the common spaces, and their direct relationship with the outside, make you feel as if you were in an open space all the time, enjoying the surrounding landscape and nature.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachFollowing these ideas, the house vanishes at one end. Here the exterior space is under a canopy, which offers shade, views, and a central space for the house, again, outside.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachThe house has been designed to be a low energy building. For the hot seasons we have planned a system for crossed ventilation via small openings in the façades and north-oriented skylights, which allow very comfortable temperatures without any need for air conditioning. For the winter, the house has increased wall thickness and insulation, and the heating is provided by a high performance wood-chip heater, which is connected to solar panels, also supplying hot water.Save this picture!Courtesy of Eugeni BachThe rainwater is collected under an underground water tank, which provides “grey” water for the garden and toilets.

However, the data from consultancy 2into3 showed that not all sectors posted an improvement in fundraising partly because of seasonal trends in activity.Based on the four sections in the survey the results showed:·       Social Services experienced an increase of 26%·       Health experienced a 13% decrease year-on-year·       International experienced a fundraising income increased by 17%·       Arts, Culture, Media fundraising fell by 15%The monitor is a subscription-based service provided by 2into3 and provides benchmarking data which allows charities to compare their fundraising experience with that of your peers both within and across sub-sector.The information on donor retention and attrition allows an in-depth analysis of regular/committed giving and direct marketing appeals. The metrics will benchmark all techniques biannually, distinguishing between cold and warm, and will then look at the annual conversion rate and life-time value.The annual subscription rate for the service varies from €100 to €1500 depending on the turnover of the charity.

Solidarity with migrants at U.S./Mexico border

first_imgWWP presidential candidate Monica Moorehead, former Mexican political prisoner Nestora Salgado, and Los Angeles WWP leader John Parker at apartheid wall dividing Nogales.Nogales, Ariz.A U.S./Mexico Border Convergence took place Oct. 7-10 at Nogales, a city in both Arizona and the Mexican state of Sonora. Organized by the School of Americas Watch, the convergence promoted solidarity with migrants, who face many forms of violent repression when poverty and other conditions in their home countries force them to cross the border into the U.S.Much of this repression comes from the racist U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, which has been given the green light by the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to beat, imprison and kill migrants who attempt to cross the border into the U.S.A statement from the organizers of the convergence read: “Over the past 26 years, SOA Watch has grown from a handful of people into one of the most dynamic multi-generational, cross-continental movements against militarization in the Americas. Thousands have been educated and mobilized to take a stand against U.S. policies and to engage in nonviolent direct action. New layers of activists are joining the movement.“The militarization of the border means the expansion of U.S. military strategies across the Americas. To speak of the border means naming the root causes of migration, as well as policies that criminalize and exploit communities of color inside and outside the United States. Today, we say enough!”For many years, the SOA Watch protests took place in Fort Benning, Ga., attracting thousands of activists to oppose the U.S. military training there of Latin American troops from various countries to disrupt and destroy popular movements for liberation.On Oct. 7, a vigil took place in front of the notorious immigrant detention center in Eloy, Ariz. The names of many immigrants who have suffered brutal deaths inside the center were read out loud.The next day, Oct. 8, Veterans for Peace led a march of hundreds to the border, where a rally with speakers and cultural performances took place. Marchers went between Nogales in Mexico and Nogales in Arizona. The two are really one city that has been separated by an ominous iron fence about 650 miles long and almost 30 feet high. Various workshops took place following the march in Nogales.On Oct. 9, a vigil and rally took place at the border both to remember those who have lost their lives trying to cross over and to celebrate the resistance.The U.S. Border Patrol admits that 6,000 human remains have been found in the southwest section of the border since 1998. That was just four years after President Bill Clinton signed the North American Free Trade Act, which destroyed local economies in Mexico and fueled deeper superexploitation of Mexican workers, while eliminating millions of jobs in the U.S. and Canada.An all-day Indigenous People’s Day festival featuring speeches, spoken word and music is planned in Tucson on Oct. 10 to counter the racist myth of Christopher Columbus “discovering” the Americas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Harvest Interruptions will Continue to Pop Up

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Harvest Interruptions will Continue to Pop Up Facebook Twitter SHARE Harvest Interruptions will Continue to Pop Up SHARE By Andy Eubank – Oct 26, 2017 No-prolonged-dry-periodsWidespread rains this week halted harvest but combines were running again by Thursday and now the question is how long can they run? In the new Seed Consultants harvest weather forecast update, HAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says recent changes in the weather pattern mean dodging rain events ahead is now a requirement.“Over the next few days we’ve got no more than 2, 3, if you’re lucky 4 days in between rain systems that come through. We’re going to have a front that moves through early in the weekend, actually Friday night into Saturday that brings our next round of rain,” Martin says. “It’s only half the state, but we will see a harvest slowdown with a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of rain to the south and east of a line from Angola down to Evansville. Then you’re going to put together several dry days. The balance of the weekend looks good. Monday looks good, but we’ve got some cloud cover and damp feeling weather coming in for Tuesday. Our next full out front comes in next Wednesday, and then after that we’ve got another strong weather system coming toward the end of next weekend.”Of course, Indiana is finally dealing with cooler weather, and it looks like those temperatures might be here to stay.“They’re finally getting down to where they should be,” Martin said. “We were above normal for so long in October, and now as we flip the calendar going into November, I don’t think we’re going to be that far below normal, but we’re actually going to be near normal. So, if you put in good moisture every 2, 3, 4 days or so, and you’ve got temperatures that don’t do much better than the 40’s, 50’s or if you’re lucky low 60’s, you’re not going to see exceptionally fast dry down. I would say that we’re going to take quite a bit longer to move moisture out of the soil profile and out of these stalks to try to get the rest of harvest going as well.”The harvest weather forecast is sponsored by Seed Consultants and Kokomo Grain, and if you would like it emailed to you, sign up at www.hoosieragtoday.com.

U.S. Special 301 Report Criticizes Europe for Wrongly Targeting U.S. Dairy…

USTR should be commended for recognizing the problem, and we look forward to working with them to rectify it.”Vilsack urged the USTR to prioritize securing binding commitments from America’s current trading partners to prevent future GI restrictions. The market access preservation commitments secured with Mexico as part of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, he said, provide a positive precedent to build upon.Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation, also urged the Administration to take into account the lopsided dairy trade imbalance between the United States and Europe in formulating policies to tackle the EU’s predatory attacks on U.S. dairy exports.Europe sent $1.8 billion in dairy goods to the U.S. market in 2018 but only imported $145 million of U.S. products, even though America is a major dairy supplier to the rest of the world.“Trade is supposed to be a two-way street,” Mulhern noted. “America’s struggling U.S. dairy producers deserve a lot better than the current one-way trade relationship with the European Union whereby they sell us a billion dollars of cheese each year while erecting walls to our ability to compete head to head with them overseas.”last_img read more

She was arrested in Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Binh district on 23 October for allegedly defaming a senior Communist Party official and his family.The press freedom organization calls for her immediate release and voices concern about an increase in arrests of bloggers in recent weeks. “The government should realize that, regardless of what it does, people will continue to criticise the authorities online,” the organization said. “This is a battle that the government has already lost.”The author of one of the most popular blogs among Vietnamese Internet users, Tra writes about sensitive political issues with humour. She alleged in a blog entry on 14 October that deputy public security minister Nguyen Khanh Toan had granted favours to a beauty queen and various performers who were the mistresses of his son, Nguyen Trong Khanh, a “womanizer” and consumer of drugs.She had already accused the deputy minister in a previous entry of finding a political job for his son. The previous entry, which also accused the son of drug-taking, was later erased from the blog but by then it had been reposted on other sites.If convicted, Tra could be facing up to seven years in prison.With a total of 17 cyber-dissidents currently detained, Vietnam is the world’s second biggest prison for netizens, after China. It is ranked 165th out of 178 countries in the press freedom index that Reporters Without Borders released on 20 October.last_img read more
