Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Companies’ annual reports routinely contain a wordy section on risk. The idea is simple: to outline to their investors the principal risks that the business faces, and the steps that the companies in question have taken to minimise or mitigate these risks. Written by Terry Smith, then a little-known investment analyst, it lifted the lid on a number of dodgy accounting practices, all of which served to flatter a company’s accounts. And most of which were not only legal, but relatively widespread. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

As he sagely observes, it’s not just generals who are prone to fighting the last war. See all posts by Malcolm Wheatley But I’ve seen almost no discussion of the impact of the new normal on corporate profitability. Which, when you think about it, is odd.For it stands to reason that socially distanced factories and shops are going to be operating more expensively, and with lower levels of production and sales. Likewise airlines flying with empty rows of seats, and pubs and restaurants kept half-full. Like it or not, the danger is of a new normal in corporate profitability.Think for a moment, too, about how those lower volume levels will interact with businesses’ overheads – which will have to be spread over a lower level of activity. Economies of scale only happen at scale: if there isn’t the scale, there won’t be the economies. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images 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. In the weeks ahead, doubtless more will become apparent.Whatever the new normal looks like, there will be winners and losers. And for investors, that brings opportunity. Not that any of us will be going into secondhand bookshops in the near future, of course.Horses and stable doorsThese days, Terry Smith is rather better known: he’s the chief executive of fund management firm Fundsmith, and judging from his interviews and newspaper articles, he appears to be as outspoken as ever.And as he’s just pointed out, prior to the coronavirus crisis, mentions of global pandemics in corporate risk statements were vanishingly few, if any. But going forward, he thinks that it will be a rare annual report that doesn’t list pandemics as a major risk. To me, such risk statements often don’t really add a lot of value. I’m rarely surprised by what they contain, and rarely come away better informed.Being charitable, I suppose that they show that the relevant sub-committee of the board has at least considered the risks in question, and that some sort of thought has been given to how they might be minimised or mitigated. To which I’d add another observation. Even though we appear to be going from no mention at all of global pandemics in annual reports to wall-to-wall coverage of them, the underlying probability of a pandemic hasn’t changed.

As with the recovery in 2009, fortune is likely to favour the brave. Some will call it early – but only some will call it correctly. So to me, that spells inflation, as well.Call it early; call it right At the moment, relatively little is known about how Britain will get back to work, and what that new world of work will look like. But I can’t think of a single occasion where the risk statement actually changed my mind about a company, and about the desirability or otherwise of investing in it.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…Expert insightPublished in 1992, Accounting for Growth was a remarkable book. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The big thrust seems to be to get shuttered businesses re-opened, and furloughed employees back to work. Very little, too, is known about the ongoing strength of consumer demand. And, to be blunt, we need to know about that before it is possible to make any assessment of whether the recovery will be V-shaped, U-shaped, or some other shape. The risk of a pandemic was present before, and it’s just as likely to occur again. What has changed is our perception of risk, not the actual prevalence of risk.Lower profits, higher inflation?Going forward, there’s a lot of talk about ‘the new normal’.

I wonder if the SunRail has this service already, and if they don’t, are they going to add it on the trains like on the Lynx buses? LYNX has now added Wi-Fi to all 300 buses. This customer amenity is the first technology tool planned to roll out in 2017.When customers board buses they will need to make sure Wi-Fi has been turned on in their device’s settings, select “LYNX-Bus WIFI”, accept the terms and conditions, and then enjoy free Wi-Fi during the ride. A password is not required.“Our board of directors envisions transforming LYNX into an agency that is attractive to all Central Floridians,” said Edward L. Johnson, chief executive officer. “As we continue to roll out new technologies which will allow passengers to read and send emails, communicate through social media, and read their favorite electronic publication or correspondence while our operators take them safely to their destination, this is the first step in meeting that expectation.”The service will be provided by Verizon Wireless. The WIFI main page also will allow the agency to sell advertising.LYNX spent $182,000 on the initial installation of the equipment, and will incur annual costs of just over $175,000 to provide the cellular Internet signal ($36 per bus per month), security software and device maintenance and support.LYNX already offers customers free Wi-Fi at LYNX Central Station.Other modern technology enhancements include a mobile fare payment system and applications for customers to plan their trip including finding the location of buses.

first_img The Anatomy of Fear By Kimberly WinstonEditors’ note: The following Q&A about Ash Wednesday is provided courtesy of Religion News Service’s feature “The ‘Splainer,” which helps to break down important topics concerning religion.c. 2015 Religion News ServiceAs people will be walking around with ashes on their heads today, The ‘Splainer asks what having a dirty forehead has to do with being a Christian and why this ritual is gaining in popularity.Q: Excuse me, but why do you have dirt on your forehead?A: Today is Ash Wednesday, the day many Christians mark as the first day of Lent, the time of reflection and penitence leading up to Easter Sunday. Clergy all over the world dispense ashes, usually made by burning the palm fronds distributed on last year’s Palm Sunday, making the sign of the cross on the bowed foreheads before them. As they “impose” or “dispense” the ashes, the pastor or priest reminds each Christian of Genesis 3:19: “For dust you are and to dust you shall return.”Q: Well, that’s cheerful. Why would anyone want to start a workday on such a downer?A: It isn’t intended to be a downer. It’s supposed to be a reminder that our lives are short and we must live them to the fullest. OK, maybe it’s a little bit of a downer—that verse from Genesis is what God said to Adam and Eve when he expelled them from the Garden of Eden for their sins. But there’s a big party the night before Ash Wednesday. That’s Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday,” a secular observance that evolved out of “Shrove Tuesday,” the last hurrah–usually marked by eating of pancakes or other sinfully sweet foods–before the solemnity and penance of Lent set in.Q: OK, so don’t invite me over for dinner until Lent is over in 40 days.A: Fun fact: Lent is actually longer than 40 days. There are 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter, but most churches don’t count the Sundays as part of Lent.Q: I thought only Catholics marked Ash Wednesday?A: Not anymore. It used to be true that Catholics made up the lion’s share of people celebrating Ash Wednesday. But today, most “liturgical churches”—those with a regular, calendar-based liturgy, or set of rituals and observances—mark the day, including Methodists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Lutherans and other Protestants. Some evangelicals are even beginning to get into the spirit as Baptist churches in Alabama, Texas and Arkansas have smeared some ash in recent years. But the majority of evangelical and Pentecostal Christians don’t observe the day, and neither do Mormons.U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Brian MayQ: Do you have to go to church before or after work to get your ashes?A: Not anymore! Many churches, ministries and clergy offer “ashes to go,” which can range from dispensing ashes on subway and train platforms, on street corners and other urban crossroads. Some enterprising Christians even offer ashes in a drive-thru.Q: I don’t remember reading about Ash Wednesday in the Bible. Where did the practice come from?A: That’s true; there is no mention of Ash Wednesday in the Bible. But there is a tradition of donning ashes as a sign of penitence that predates Jesus. In the Old Testament, Job repents “in dust and ashes,” and there are other associations of ashes and repentance in Esther, Samuel, Isaiah and Jeremiah. By the 10th century, the monk Aelfric tied the practice, which dates to the eighth century, to the period before Easter, writing, “Now let us do this little at the beginning of our Lent that we strew ashes upon our heads to signify that we ought to repent of our sins during the Lenten fast.” By the 11th century, the practice was widespread throughout the church—until Martin Luther, the Protestant reformer, threw the practice out in the 16th century because it was not biblically based. There’s no Lent in the Bible, either, though many Christians see it as an imitation of the 40 days Jesus spent fasting and battling with Satan in the desert.Q: When can you wash the dirt off your face?A: No one is required to keep the ashes on his or her face after the ritual. But some Christians choose to, perhaps as a reminder to themselves that they are mortal and fallible, while others may choose to leave them on as a witness to their faith in the hope others will ask about them and open a door to sharing their faith.

Located on a mountainside, the site of the “Les Elfes” residence posed a singular problem of the horizon as perceptual referent. The monumentality of the landscape presented to the observer from several rocky peaks was contradictory, in my opinion, with the scenic qualities required by the intimacy of the habitat. It was therefore necessary to design an anti-monument (following a particularly extensive program) and create a sort of observation “device” by way of a building.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsTo tame this monumentality and separate the “unique” view it imposes, I sought to fragment the landscape by distributing the volume of the building among several “blocks” oriented to specific points of view. The approach thus does not depend on a programmatic constraint, but rather on enhancing the perceptual experience within the habitat. Multiplying the points of view attenuated the scenic majesty guessed at the base of the cliff to bring out a series of modest landscapes created by the assembly of the constructed forms.Save this picture!Access Floor PlanThis fragmentation also evokes the spatial quality of the rock masses found on Laurentian summits, that create a sort of natural “lookout” bared of vegetation. The project preserves this quality by multiplying the exterior surfaces conducive to contemplation: looking instead of knowing. In cross-section, the “blocks” are half-buried and connected by places reserved for utilities. The appearance remains deliberately fragmented to better “frame” the views offered from the interior and the exterior. A continuous Toog wood wall, like a thread, is deployed on the brick fragments and acts as a perceptual referent of the whole by creating a new horizon line.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsA more intimate small inner courtyard is formed by this wall and by the displacement of one of the blocks (that of the day rooms) in relation to the peak of the rock face abutting the complex. It serves as a counterpoint to the great terrace overlooking the valley, located opposite the same block accommodating the day rooms. This place offers a more limited view of the landscape in the morning light, which creates the everyday space of the two retired owners.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsMaterially, the brick cladding links the architectural reading of the exterior envelope to the stones seen from the site. The floors also are made of Toog wood, again offering a symbolic continuity with the “thread” and the soil. We proposed to paint the brick with lime for a clearer reading of the volumetric aspect of the components (especially in winter), but the owners preferred the traditional spirit of brick left bare. We repeated this attempt with the creation of the L’ÉCRAN house.Save this picture!Terrace Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Interviews: Will Bruder / Will Bruder ArchitectsInterviewsMola Structural Kit: A New Way to Learn About StructuresArchitecture News Share Houses 2011 CopyAbout this officeAlain Carle ArchitecteOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMorin-HeightsHousesCanadaPublished on September 12, 2014Cite: “Les Elfes / Alain Carle Architecte” 12 Sep 2014.

first_img PolandEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Wprost caused a political earthquake on 15 June when it published details of what it described as the first a series of conversations between politicians that had been secretly recorded in a chic Warsaw restaurant.The first recording to be published was a conversation between the interior minister and central bank governor, in which the latter promised to support the government’s budgetary policies and reelection strategy.The police do not yet know who recorded the conversations but the Warsaw prosecutor’s office has begun investigating the restaurant’s owner on suspicion of recording them illegally.It was this investigation that provided prosecutors, police officers and members of the Internal Security Agency with grounds for their 18 June raid on Wprost with the declared aim of obtaining the computer devices with the recordings in order to “secure” them.Citing their right to protect their sources, Wprost’s journalists refused to surrender their computers. When editor-in-chief Sylvester Latkowski held on to his laptop, police struggled with him and even tried to damage it, exposing the spurious nature of their claim to be trying to “secure” the recordings.“We fully support Wprost’s staff against what is a serious attack on the confidentiality of journalists’ sources,” said Reporters Without Borders deputy research chief Virginie Dangles. “Raiding a publication and using force in an attempt to seize journalists’ computers are methods that are unworthy of Poland’s democracy.” After reporters from other media flocked to Wprost’s offices during the raid, the prosecutors and police finally withdrew. The Polish bar’s national council adopted a resolution yesterday pointing out that the attempt to seize recordings held by Wprost journalists “violated fundamental rights guaranteed by the Polish constitution, code of criminal procedure and press law.”Denying any attempt to restrict freedom of information in Poland, Prime Minister Donald Tusk called for the recordings to be handed over to the judicial authorities on the grounds that they are needed for the investigation and because, otherwise, politicians could be exposed to the possibility of blackmail.At a news conference in Warsaw on 18 June after the raid, prosecutor Andrzej Seremet said the original recordings were needed to identify who made them. He invited journalists to hand over their computers to the prosecutor’s office under seal, so that only judges would have access to them. He did not say whether Wprost would be raided again.
