Royston Wild | Sunday, 14th February, 2021 | More on: EBOX RMG I own shares in Tritax Big Box REIT to ride the online shopping phenomenon. Demand for this firm’s logistics and warehousing services is heating up as parcels traffic in the UK clicks through the gears. It has a growing list of blue-chip clients that includes the likes of Amazon, Ocado, Royal Mail (LSE: RMG), Unilever and L’Oréal.There are threats to this UK property share in 2021 and beyond though. The British economy is struggling from the twin issues of Covid-19 and Brexit. This could well dampen online shopping volumes and damage Tritax Big Box’s profits. Moreover, the possible introduction of an online sales tax could put the brakes on the stratospheric internet shopping growth of recent years.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…Another UK e-commerce shareThis is why I believe Tritax Eurobox (LSE: EBOX) might be a less risky buy today. The Covid-19 crisis has had significant economic consequences all over the continent. But the UK is the biggest economic casualty from the pandemic due to its services-heavy economy. On top of this, the prospect of a levy being slapped on online retailers is yet to be seriously raised in European Union countries.Okay, Britain has the largest online market in Europe. But Tritax Eurobox has a significant (and growing) exposure to Germany and Poland, two of the continent’s fastest-growing e-commerce markets. There’s already a significant shortage of ‘big box’ warehouse and distribution facilities in Central Europe. Like-for-like rents at Tritax Eurobox rose 2.9% in the last fiscal year as a result of this shortfall of new space.There are risks that could threaten the company’s bright outlook, though. Securing planning permission to build big box facilities is often very difficult. The threat of rival facilities emerging around new developments is another. Also, this stock doesn’t come cheap. Tritax Eurobox trades on an elevated price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 30 times.Still, I think its P/E represents the structural opportunities it currently enjoys. Besides, a corresponding 4.1% dividend yield helps to take the edge off. This beats the broader average of 3.5% for UK shares by a healthy margin.An impressive packageAs I say, there are reasons why online shopping growth in Britain might take a hit. But I’d still be happy to add Royal Mail to my ISA. This is even though recent share price strength leaves the courier trading on an elevated forward P/E ratio of around 23 times. Like Tritax Eurobox, this leaves it in danger of a share price correction should news flow begin to disappoint. The threat of strike action is ever-present at the business too.But on the plus side, parcels traffic is rocketing at Royal Mail, as last week’s strong trade update showed. And the company is investing heavily in its package-moving operations to boost its expertise in this arena. It’s set to have four new parcel sorting machines in operation by spring next year to help it deal with bulging volumes. It’s also introducing new services like parcels pick-up from customers’ homes to help deliver long-term profits growth.

The house is built in a residential area in the forest in Os i Østerdalen in Norway. The client wanted to preserve as much of the site’s natural character as possible and build a house of wood, based on the traditional 6″ timber frame construction. On the basis of some fixed constraints, such as the level and size of the basement, the terrain falling to the south and that the developer wanted proximity to the forest, the building cantilevers beyond the foundation of both gable walls.Save this picture!Courtesy of   huus og heim arkitekturRecommended ProductsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodEGGERLaminatesEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesRooms are organized as a result of the timber frame construction, in a grid of 3×3 meter.

A project of 34 housing units on an island site bordered by a gymnasium, a school and suburban housing, on avenue Henri Barbusse. In the background, low-cost housing from the 50s which will be demolished.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe challenge here for the lessor, the social organisation Immobilière3F, is to rehouse 34 families close to their old district but in a scenario of wholly revamped housing, the design for which was entrusted to the architects of atelier du pont.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyBeyond the barrier there is a small group on a human scale, a 2-storey building + U-shaped roof with in the middle a court in the style of a 3rd Republic school yard or a farm courtyard. This looks onto 7 hundred-year-old plane trees, splendid «protected green spaces» which impart a «quiet and substantial» air to the whole and whose arrangement perpendicular to the road played a key role in atelier du pont’s decision to choose a layout based on a court and not on a street.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe project owes its image of a large house largely to its double pitched roof, which echoes the style imposed by the suburban architecture while revising it radically through the device of changing the look of the elevations to roof, eliminating all distinction between elevation and roof.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyUrban and user-friendly at the same time, the building emphasises its two-way orientation, onto the court and onto the road, or again onto itself and onto the outside, through a white terracotta finish facing the road and on the exterior elevations of the U contrasting with a wooden look for the elevations facing the court.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyIndoors, the desire to abandon large scale is reflected in the decision to develop 4 stair wells, as a result of which only 2 housing units can be placed on each landing, thus emphasising the «small living unit» aspect. All the housing units run crossways or face two ways, even the 2-room units. Each one has a view over the court; all the rooms and in particular all the bathrooms (except one!) are naturally lit.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe entrances are designed to be easily converted into small offices, thus taking into account changing lifestyles and family make-up. For each of the housing units there are wide external spaces (balconies or rooftop terraces), in a chequerboard arrangement to prevent the casting of shadows, so that meals can be taken in the open.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe living rooms are glazed, wide sliding windows providing natural light and maximum sunlight. Finally the communal parts are almost all naturally lit and painted in a monochrome of greens which contrast with the bright orange of the stairways. The choice of a simple quite compact shape without any frills has made it possible to emphasise the quality of the materials and their use. Exterior insulation and a generous provision of natural light mean that the building very easily achieves the Very High Environmental Performance grading, which was the aim of the client when the work was put out to tender.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyProject gallerySee allShow lessArboretum on Cebeli Hill / METEKIYANArticlesOyster Farm Hangar / Raum ArchitectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Avenue Henri Barbusse, Bondy, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Newspaper owner attacks head of Kosovo journalists’ association

first_img Kosovar investigative journalist assaulted in Pristina Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage RSF_en to go further KosovoEurope – Central Asia December 9, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper owner attacks head of Kosovo journalists’ association Receive email alerts News Follow the news on Kosovo June 14, 2018 Find out more The attack took place when Demiri summoned Shabani to his office and tried to get him to sign a document terminating his contract. Shabani refused because it appeared to be a reprisal for his activity as head of the union.“It was at this point that Sejdi Demiri became aggressive,” Shabani said. “He used violent language and then suddenly attacked me physically.” Shabani immediately went to a police station to report the attack and the police are now investigating.Tension has been mounting between many journalists and employers in Kosovo at a time when a decline in media freedom is often blamed on the inadequate earnings of news organizations.At a recent news conference to announce that AGK had signed an agreement with a law firm to represent journalists who were not being paid, Shabani said he wanted to be “the first to sue an unfair employer,” adding that he planned to sue Tribuna, which had not paid him for two months.In a statement issued after the attack, AGK said: “in a country where elected chairman of KJA from the journalists community and editor of the newspaper is attacked for raising voice against injustice made in the workplace, testifies to the serious situation in which journalist work and violation of their human rights in Kosovo.”Kosovo is ranked 80th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Tribuna newspaper owner Sejdi Demiri yesterday physically attacked one of his journalists, Zekirja Shabani, after Shabani, as head of the Kosovo Journalists’ Association (AGK), announced he was suing the newspaper for failing to pay its staff on time.

Chinese diplomat Lu Shaye, the bane of Canadian media, appointed ambassador to France

first_img Receive email alerts June 17, 2019 Chinese diplomat Lu Shaye, the bane of Canadian media, appointed ambassador to France News Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about the upcoming arrival of Lu Shaye, 54, to the Chinese Embassy in France, replacing current ambassador Zhai Jun. The diplomat, a fluent French speaker who has served as China’s ambassador to Canada since 2017, has earned a reputation as a pest to journalists by systematically accusing them of “disseminating a negative portrait” of China as soon as their articles displeased him. Shaye’s undiplomatic style will sharply contrast with the relative discretion of his predecessor.”A diplomat should not try to intimidate the media in the country in which he is posted, much less give them instructions,” insists Cedric Alviani, the head of the RSF East Asia bureau. “The very fact that Lu Shaye is still an ambassador despite his brash words is indicative of the aggressive and uninhibited attitude with which Beijing tries to impose its propaganda outside its borders.”Immediately after being posted to Ottawa in 2017, Lu Shaye did not hesitate to attack the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying it had better “spend less time bowing down to Canadian journalists preoccupied with human rights and get on with negotiating an important free trade agreement with China.” More recently, Shaye accused Canadian media of “Western egotism and white supremacy” and disparaged their work on the ground that they are in a lesser position to judge China’s development compared to the Chinese people. He also regularly complained of the “biased” and “slanderous” character of their articles denouncing the persecution of Uyghurs.Lu Shaye is not the first Chinese official to attack foreign media. The Chinese ambassador to Sweden, Gui Congyou, also recently embarked on a crusade against journalists. In June 2016, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, on an official visit to Canada, also publicly disparaged a journalist for asking an “irresponsible” question about human rights in China.China is one of the world’s largest prisons for journalists, with at least 111 of them behind bars in life-threatening conditions. In the 2019 World Press Freedom Index published by RSF, the country ranks 177th out of 180. After two years of office in Canada, Lu Shaye will soon be appointed to be China’s ambassador to France. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) insists that a diplomat should not try to intimidate the media of the country where he is posted.

Observation and simulations of winds and temperatures in the Antarctic thermosphere for August 2–10, 1992

first_imgOptically derived upper thermospheric wind and temperature data, collected at Antarctic stations at South Pole (L = 14), Mawson (L = 9.3), and Halley (L = 4.6), and averaged over the low-activity period August 2–10, 1992, have been interpreted with the help of simulation by the National Center for Atmospheric Research thermosphere ionosphere electrodynamic general circulation model (TIEGCM) with inputs matching the average conditions of observation. The simulation provides a global background context upon which the widely-separated optical observations can be placed. The simulation shows three large-scale structures in the polar wind field: the morning vortex, the evening vortex, and the cross-polar wind jet. Each of these came within view of the group of observing stations during the diurnal cycle, providing arrival time observations and signatures which were examined relative to the TIEGCM simulation. Reasonable correspondence was found, indicating the capability of the model to agree simultaneously with observations at three widely spaced stations representative of the subauroral and auroral zones, as well as the polar cap. Simulated wind directions were in excellent agreement with observation, although wind magnitudes frequently exceeded measured values by up to 30%. Apparent divergent flows in the data from Halley and Mawson were explained as signatures of vortices from their presence in the simulated wind fields. Observed diurnal mean temperatures compared well with the simulation, confirming that heat inputs and the distribution of thermal energy in the model are, on average, reasonable. A significant and persistent difference between experimental and modeled temperatures was that the diurnal temperature variation observed at South Pole peaked at the nightside crossing of the jet and was minimum a few hours before noon magnetic local time, whereas the simulation indicated minimum temperatures on the nightside, in antiphase to the measurements. A simple calculation indicates that the observed temperature difference between the air parcels entering the polar cap, encountered on the dayside, and those leaving the polar cap on the nightside is reasonably matched to the heating due to the ion-drag acceleration process. No explanation of the lack of this temperature rise in the TIEGCM simulation is presently available.last_img read more
