May eyes tight cargo rules

first_img KCS-content HOME Secretary Theresa May yesterday said security around all international air cargo arriving in Britain was being reviewed after a bomb sent from Yemen was found aboard an aircraft at East Midlands airport.However, acknowledging the massive economic and financial implications of much tighter international air cargo security rules, May stopped short of saying a much more rigorous system of checks was being planned either unilaterally or globally.“We are looking at the screening of freight. We will be looking at the processes we use. We’ll be talking with the industry about these issues,” she said.Asked if much tighter laws governing air freight security are being considered at airports around the world she said she could not talk about specific action.Tighter laws would hurt the already-struggling air cargo industry. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The BAE share price has outperformed the FTSE 100 in 2020

first_imgThe BAE share price has outperformed the FTSE 100 in 2020 Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 29th December, 2020 | More on: BA Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. BAE Systems (LSE: BA) has outperformed the FTSE 100 in 2020. At least, as I write these words on 29 December, it has, and only by a little. The BAE share price is down 10%, while the Footsie has lost another couple of points to fall 12% in the year.It’s possible those market positions could reverse in the short time remaining before the London Stock Exchange closes for New Year. I’d rate it unlikely, mind. And it really doesn’t matter anyway. In fact, the performances of individual stocks in 2020 doesn’t really mean much at all for investors heading into 2021. Well, saying that, they matter in one way. Weak performances in 2020 have, in my view, left us with some undervalued shares to buy as we head into the new year. And I reckon BAE is one of them.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…The BAE share price had been buoyant before the pandemic struck, and that helped to cushion it a little in the early months. But by November, BAE shares were down 30% on the year, below the index. Since then, we’ve seen an impressive recovery. But why did investors turn away from the company?BAE share price contagionSome of it must surely be down to fall-out from the troubles at Rolls-Royce. Shares in Rolls have plummeted in 2020, as the near-cessation of air travel has hit the aerospace industry. But Rolls is heavily dependent on civilian aviation, getting its profits from maintenance and repair contracts for its engines.BAE isn’t in the same situation, and recorded only a modest fall in underlying profits at the 2020 halfway stage. Net debt did grow a little, but the firm’s order intake improved too. At 20 June, BAE had an order backlog of £46.1bn, maintaining steady consistency. Despite what I saw as an encouraging update, those interim figures did nothing to prevent the upcoming slide in the BAE share price. But it did, in my opinion, provide a terrific buying opportunity.Will the market’s fears prove well founded for the second half? Judging by the company’s November trading update, it doesn’t look that way. Chief executive Charles Woodburn said: “We have continued to deliver a resilient performance in line with our expectations for a strong second half.”Growing order bookThe company reiterated its full-year guidance from the first-half update. And speaking of high demand, BAE said it expected order intake to exceed its pre-Covid planning for the year. That reinforces my view the BAE share price weakness of 2020 has been an aberration.Though we’ll surely be facing tough economic times for a few years, defence spending remains upbeat. Germany has approved the purchase of 38 new Typhoon aircraft. And in the US, BAE says its “portfolio remains well aligned to customer priorities and growth areas, which we expect to continue under the next administration.“With a long-term record of cash generation and dividends, BAE is firmly on my buy list for 2021. Full-year results are due on 25 February, and I can see good figures giving the BAE share price a boost. 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.

ITM Power: should I buy it for my Stocks and Shares ISA?

ITM Power (LSE:ITM), which designs and manufactures hydrogen energy storage, has become one of the UK’s most popular shares in 2020 and 2021. Hargreaves Lansdown investors are buying the stock in droves. ITM Power currently sits in the top 10 list of the most bought UK shares among the likes of easyjet, Bitcoin miner Argo Blockchain, electric car giant Tesla and FTSE 100 stalwart Lloyds Banking Group.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…Since November 2020 it has added 150% to its share price. The question for me is: am I too late to buy this stock and make gains? At a price of around 630p should I add ITM Power to my Stocks and Shares ISA?ITM Power is a future playLet’s look at today’s valuation for the South Yorkshire firm. The share has amassed a market valuation of £3.6bn on reported full-year 2020 revenues of just £3.29m. Losses over the 12 months to 30 April 2020 rocketed to £29.4m, from £9.35m the previous year.It’s not unusual to see companies build very large market caps even while reporting many years of losses. Elon Musk’s Tesla, for example, has only reported a single period of profit on its way to becoming the seventh most valuable company on earth. Investor appetite for the electric vehicle pioneer supports an $830bn valuation today. Hydrogen fuels net zero boomHydrogen could form a key part of the world’s net-zero-carbon future. So ITM Power could profit heavily.But there are significant risks. Recent research by the Edison Group, for example, highlights that while hydrogen stocks have soared, there are pitfalls along the way. It writes: “Many potentially viable parts of the market will not reach self-sufficiency unless governments provide investment [and] explicitly encourage hydrogen adoption.” And at higher valuations, hydrogen companies are “highly sensitive” to setbacks. The report adds that while hydrogen’s high energy-to-mass ratio makes it ideal to replace fossil fuels in industry, in road, sea and air cargo, it likely won’t power cars.More powerMy own research suggests that there’s a way to go before hydrogen hits mass markets. The energy content per volume of hydrogen is only a quarter of other gases like methane, for example. So to transport the same amount of energy we would need larger diameter pipes compared to natural gas.Hydrogen is also a volatile gas so would require different kinds of pipelines. If we disregard these problems and say hydrogen should be produced locally, it produces a new set of issues around storage. The real question for me is this: can ITM Power one day turn a profit? It’s possible. It certainly has potential, demonstrated by a flood of good news recently. The completion of its 1GW Gigafactory in Sheffield is a positive. As is January’s announcement of a joint venture with hydrogen plant giant Linde in Germany.I think ITM Power could have a place in my Stocks and Shares ISA as part of a diversified portfolio. I’ll keep my FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 dividend income payers for steady gains. But I wouldn’t mind grabbing a slice of the rise of hydrogen power either. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares ITM Power: should I buy it for my Stocks and Shares ISA?center_img TomRodgers has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Michelet 50 / Dellekamp Arquitectos

The apartment building is situated in the centre of Mexico City, in the district of Anzures, indicating the urban character of the plot. According to the requirements of the client, we designed a building which features different apartment typologies divided into three blocks, giving more square meters of facade to each side. Common areas of the apartment community are contained in a single space looking outside to three facades. The building stands way behind the street line, giving space to create green zones in an urban district. Each of them surrounds and enters into the volume to become service areas. This idea became the main driving force behind the interior space design. A glass facade covers the irregular wall of the building to provide a unique appearance, also giving a character of unlimited connection between interior and exterior space. Just the horizontal framing marks the different levels of the construction.Save this picture!Meanwhile we were developing the project; the Mexican artist Jeronimo Hagerman installed one of his plastic art works in the Museum Sala de Siqueiros of Mexico City, using veining plants perfectly the ones we were thinking for the green areas.

Armadillo is located in Kamakura, Japan. With the sea to one side and the other 3 surrounded by mountains, this town’s topography provides ideal protection from enemy. This feature led Kamakura to become the political centre of Japan in the 12th century. This site is located in a valley with a very narrow approach road ,so the carpenter was required to fabricate off-site at their workshop. The clients- a couple,her father,two dogs and a cat – bought the site with its old house four years ago. The existing house was built in the 1930s and enlarged 35years ago(this existing house do not satisfy the present earthquake-resistant standards). Save this picture!© Yuji TanabeThe clients collect furniture and musical instruments from all over the world, so the existing house is currently full of their collection. Now they have requested a low-cost annex space from us. It’s for playing music, relaxing, sleeping well and hosting parties at home in their garden, similar to a weekend house. And also this house resists an earthquake. This location is defined by the existing house, a persimmon tree and the property line delineated by a retaining wall. The diamond shape is produced by these site elements. Save this picture!© Yuji TanabeThe first floor opens to the surrounding green landscape; the second floor closes like a lair. These floors have opposite characters. The restroom is positioned on the north side of the house and separated from the other spaces, so that it can be accessed from the outside as well. This structure is constructed by many regular triangles, and the second floor is constructed by some surfaces. It’s like a monocoque. The first floor is equipped with an under-floor heating and cooling system (heat storage-style) which conditions the whole space through the void of the stair.

Basically, in collaboration with the clients, we didn’t want to prescribe a project with an image of a known house. We needed something that could capture the interesting things that we shared with them and the intention that we would move creatively towards a house together. The animal reads sunlight and wind, temperature and humidity, an environment such as ups and downs of the land. And once this information is processed, then they choose a comfortable bed.

Red, White & Blue Day to raise funds for services charities

first_imgRed, White & Blue Day to raise funds for services charities The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) is asking schools throughout the country to build the largest paper battleship fleet to honour the 250 vessels that fought in the First World War’s Battle of Jutland.On the centenary date, 31st May, the government will hold a series of Battle of Jutland Centenary commemorations, and schools are being invited to join in as part of the wider tributes.The RNRMC is encouraging schools to send pictures of their paper ships flotilla by email, social media or by sending the paper ships by post to be featured as part of the wider commemorations and for a chance to win prizes.This initiative is part of this year’s Red, White and Blue Day campaign, which will celebrate the centenary of the Battle of Jutland as well as the Battle of the Somme whilst raising vital funds for three service charities: The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC), ABF the Soldier’s Charity and the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.This year the campaign takes place on Friday 14th October and will see schools throughout the country celebrate it with children wearing red, white and blue clothes, baking cakes, painting paper flowers, etc and selling them to raise funds for the three principal service charities.Chris Taylor, communications officer at the RNRMC, said:“We’re encouraging children to be creative and make whatever boat they like; perhaps painting them in red, white and blue, by naming their ships or by writing a message to those who sail in today’s Royal Navy. It is just a small way of paying tribute to the centenary of the Battle of Jutland and highlighting the pivotal role that was played by the Royal Navy.”  53 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 18 May 2016 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Tagged with: fundraising events  54 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

End to Radio Free Europe on FM – a worrying sign for press freedom

A privately-owned radio station now being run by a reputed government ally, Radio Dovira, announced that it will stop relaying RFE/RL on 17 February. Thereafter, Ukrainians will need a short-wave receiver to tune in. Reporters Without Borders and the Mass Media Institute today deplored the imminent end to FM broadcasting for the US Congress-financed Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) in Ukraine. A privately-owned radio station now being run by a reputed government ally, Radio Dovira, announced yesterday that it will stop relaying RFE/RL on 17 February. Thereafter, Ukrainians will need a short-wave receiver to tune in.”Radio Free Europe’s commitment to the defence of democratic values is well known,” Reporters Without Borders and the Mass Media Institute said. “The sudden decision to eliminate its FM broadcasts is extremely worrying, especially as it comes just a few months before the presidential election,” they said.Dovira was bought by Ukrainian Media Holding at the end of January and is now run by businessman Sergei Kychygin, who is also the editor of the Russian-language daily 2000. Victor Yuchtchenko of Our Ukraine, the largest opposition party, and other opposition figures claim that Kychygin is an associate of the head of the presidential administration, Viktor Medvedchuk.Reporters Without Borders and the Mass Media Institute said it was disturbing that the most influential news media are now controlled by the associates of President Leonid Kuchma, especially as presidential elections are to be held in October.Dovira had been relaying RFE/RL since 1998. In a letter dated 11 February, Dovira said the decision to stop was part of a restructuring of all its programming. But RFE/RL president Thomas Dine insisted that it was a political decision taken without prior consultation and without respecting a contractual requirement to give 30 days notice.The head of RFE/RL’s Ukrainian service, Alexander Narodetsky, said relations with Dovira had been good for the past five years. They had jointly held out against pressure from the government, especially over coverage of the murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze in 2000, he said.
