This came after the FTSE 250 firm announced a “temporary suspension of cinema operations in the US and UK.” The shares were down as much as 60% to 15.46p at one point, but rallied to end the day at 25.2p (down 36%).Today, they’ve recovered further ground. Now trading at 26.5p, is it the last chance to buy before a full recovery? Or the last chance to sell before a further collapse?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 pre-pandemic Cineworld share priceBefore the Covid-19 outbreak, the Cineworld share price had been declining for some time.I have to confess I had doubts about the company’s $3.4bn mega-acquisition of US group Regal Entertainment in 2018. And writing just over a year ago, I said I was inclined to continue avoiding the stock for several reasons.First, years of declining cinema attendance in the US. Second, Cineworld’s underwhelming performance in the country to date. And third, its high net debt of $3.3bn and gearing of 3.3 times EBITDA.In subsequent articles, I only found further reasons to steer clear of the company. These included:It had become the most heavily shorted stock on the London market (December)A scathing report on Cineworld’s ‘creative’ accounting and governance by Bucephalus Research Partnership (February)Revelation that due to a margin call, an entity connected to key directors had been obliged to sell Cineworld shares pledged against a loan (March)Net debt of $7.7bn on the year-end balance sheet, and current assets of $0.45bn versus current liabilities of $1.49bn (April)Despite the above and other issues, is the Cineworld share price now so low there could be value in buying the stock for a recovery?Deadly TriadA combination of high debt and poor trading has led to the downfall of many a company. In an article last year on how investors can avoid the next Thomas Cook-style wipeout, I discussed what I called a Deadly Triad of factors I look for. Here’s how Cineworld currently measures up against them.A high level of short positions in a stock: Hedge funds are generally bang on the money in identifying companies where debt is becoming unmanageable. Cineworld is London’s most heavily shorted stock.A company’s debt trading at a significant discount: When the debt market is pricing lenders to suffer a big haircut on bank loans or bonds (which rank above equity), the equity is likely to end up worthless or near-worthless. The Financial Times yesterday reported that Cineworld’s term loans, which began the year trading at face value, “are now changing hands at about 60 cents on the dollar, according to one loan investor.”Directors move from talking of value for shareholders to value for stakeholders: You can take this to mean things have got so bad that shareholders are no longer the main focus of the directors’ fiduciary obligations. So far, Cineworld isn’t at this stage.Where next for the Cineworld share price?Cineworld isn’t far off the Deadly Triad. In my view, the company’s debt and trading outlook are so grim I can only see — at best — a massive debt-for-equity restructuring, leaving current shareholders with negligible value.In this scenario, I’d expect the current shares to be worth just a few pence. As such, if I owned the stock, I’d sell.

Rector Bath, NC Food and Faith Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Youth Minister Lorton, VA By David PaulsenPosted Jan 22, 2021 The Episcopal Actors’ Guild, based at New York’s Church of the Transfiguration, started its food pantry in 2014 to supplement the assistance it provides to struggling actors and other performers. In-person grocery pickup has been suspended during the pandemic. Photo: Episcopal Actors’ Guild via YouTube[Episcopal News Service] The sharp economic downturn in the United States during the coronavirus pandemic has hit the performing arts industry particularly hard. Nationwide, more than half of all actors and dancers and more than a quarter of all musicians were out of work as of fall 2020, according to the National Endowment for the Arts.In New York, where Broadway theaters have been closed since March and may not reopen for months, some struggling artists have received much needed support from the Episcopal Actors’ Guild, a small but dedicated charity that has been serving the performing arts community for nearly a century.The organization, based on the second floor of Manhattan’s Church of the Transfiguration, is best known for its food pantry and for the annual grants it awards to actors and other performers to help them pay their bills. The pandemic has increased the demand for both services. “We’ve been doing our part just to get people some financial relief and to get some food on their table,” Karen Lehman Foster, the Episcopal Actors’ Guild executive director, told Episcopal News Service.The number of people applying for grants increased fourfold early in the pandemic, she said, and the number receiving food has grown steadily, from about 50 a month before the pandemic to up to 150 a month recently. Much of the organization’s food distribution has shifted from in-person grocery pickups to store gift cards and online orders, to minimize the need for personal contact. “Each month, we are spending more in that area because it seems to be the biggest need,” Lehman Foster said.The Episcopal Actors’ Guild is an ecumenical ministry open to performing artists of all faiths – or no faith – though it is deeply rooted in the history of Church of the Transfiguration, which is known fondly as the “little church around the corner.” The congregation founded the Episcopal Actors’ Guild in 1923 and still supports the organization, both by providing office and gathering space for free and by collecting food and monetary donations from parishioners.“We’re part of one another,” the Rev. John David van Dooren, Transfiguration’s rector, told ENS. “We’re grafted together.”Van Dooren noted that there is a plaque on one of the church’s pews honoring the Oscar-winning stage and film actor Rex Harrison, who once was a lay reader at the church. Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks were early leaders of the Episcopal Actors’ Guild. The legendary dancer and actor Fred Astaire, who was confirmed at Church of the Transfiguration, regularly donated to the Episcopal Actors’ Guild in gratitude for supporting him as a young man, van Dooren said.The church’s stained-glass windows also spotlight the Episcopal congregation’s connection to the arts community, with images of saints alternating with panes depicting actors. Today, the church keeps a collection bin in the back of the church for donations to the Episcopal Actors’ Guild food pantry. “We assist them whenever we can,” van Dooren said.The guild offers $750 grants once a year to residents of New York, where the cost of living is among the highest in the country. Recipients are limited to those who have been performing for at least five years and have a compelling need for assistance, such as a sudden job loss. Performers with disabilities and seniors can qualify for $1,000 grants. Those who qualify also can receive groceries from the Episcopal Actors’ Guild food pantry every two weeks.That kind of assistance is much appreciated by actors like Sandro Isaack, who first learned of the guild in 2017, when his career was temporarily sidelined by a surgery that wasn’t covered by his insurance.“The Episcopal Actors’ Guild paid for a large part of my surgery,” said Isaack, a 47-year-old Brazil native. He told ENS he also was able to receive food from the organization’s pantry.Before the pandemic disrupted in-person services, the Episcopal Actors’ Guild hosted workshops and offered professional development opportunities to performing artists. After his recovery from surgery, Isaack volunteered to help lead some of those workshops, drawing on his more than 30 years of experience in theater and TV productions.“One hand reaching out makes you want to reach out your hand to someone in need,” Isaack said.The performing arts industry is cyclical and unpredictable even in normal times, Lehman Foster, the guild’s executive director, said. “It’s a great industry, but it’s not very stable,” she said. “Shows open and shows close and TV shoots get canceled, so people are sort of left high and dry, sometimes somewhat unexpectedly.”The Episcopal Actors’ Guild receives most of its financial backing from foundation grants, though it also raises money through benefit events, such as the Christmas show it organized online in December with the House of the Redeemer, another Episcopal-affiliated charity. The event, which included performances by Broadway singers, raised about $2,500, Lehman Foster said.Lehman Foster is trained as an actor and has a degree in social services. When she began working for the Episcopal Actors’ Guild in 2006, it “seemed to be a good mix” of her two professional passions – theater and the nonprofit sector. She was promoted to executive director two years later, and though raised Roman Catholic, she and her family have grown close to the congregation at Transfiguration. She and her husband were married in the church, and they baptized their daughter there.The Episcopal Actors’ Guild doesn’t proselytize through its ministry, but performance can be a spiritual practice, Lehman Foster said, even for those who aren’t religious. “I think when people perform, that is a divinely inspired thing,” she said. “A lot of performers talk about the spirit moving through them.”With the increased demand for the organization’s services during the pandemic, Lehman Foster estimated that the guild has served food to more than 600 people in the past year and given out about 300 grants.“When we think about it, it really is devastating what is happening in the performing arts community,” she said, “but we’re really glad that we’re able to be here to help people.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

In the 18th century, a new relationship came about between human society and its environment. The Romantic spirit looked to the mountains to find the sublime, an idea that Jean-François Lyotard defined in his 1984 work The Sublime and the Avant-Garde as “that contradictory feeling – pleasure and pain, joy and anxiety, exaltation and depression”. These words resonate in one’s experience of the site chosen for this family home. The beauty of the view is breath-taking, and the building’s orientation is perfect. Yet its surroundings are marked by the sprawl of buildings typical of many neighbourhoods developing in communes like Grimisuat, close to the well-conserved natural landscapes found at ever-higher altitudes as well as the built infrastructure of the Rhône valley.Save this picture!© Milo KellerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Milo KellerTo reconcile these contrasting impressions, the project has been finely crafted to create a frame for its inhabitants that magnifies the positives of the site, and eclipses the negatives. Contrary to what one might expect, this outcome has not been achieved by putting the family’s interests above all other considerations. Instead of copying the profile of several neighbouring buildings, with multiple storeys rising from a base to break the line of the mountain slope, the building extends along one level. This arrangement of rooms allows it to extend diagonally with a plan adapted to its topography, while also respecting the overall profile of buildings in the neighbourhood. Instead of competing in height, in an attempt to secure exceptional views, the quality of this project lies in the precision with which the placement of openings establishes a relationship between the exterior and the interior. While the apparent modesty of the house may suggest that it is less comfortable than its neighbours, it in fact offers an uncommon richness of orientations and ambiances, all at minimal cost to its human and environmental context.Save this picture!© Milo KellerThe manner in which the slope of the terrain has been interpreted establishes a dialogue between what is near and what is far away. To the North, openings look onto the slope, which acts as a nearby visual screen due to its verticality. The exterior space plays a role much like that of a patio, bringing in light at the same time as it fosters a feeling of protection. Opposite, facing South, one’s view is drawn to an impressive panorama, which is further enhanced by thoughtful framing. Adding to these qualities are the East and West-facing openings, which allow for an interplay of sunlight to animate the space throughout the day. In addition, mobile elements on the façade allow the residents to modulate the light and views at all times.Save this picture!© Milo KellerThe use of timber throughout serves to express subtle transitions between scales, contrasting the large and the small, the landscaping surrounding the building, and the monumentality of the Alps. From afar, the house looks old and vernacular, governed by the constraints of an architecture formed and refined by the harshness of mountain life. On the approach, however, the motif of the cladding becomes visible, revealing a building that combines the power of inherited traditions with a project aimed at meeting higher needs. This is achieved through the creation of a living environment that does justice to an exceptional situation. In the interior, the degree of craftsmanship reaches a new threshold, culminating in the attention lavished on the sitting room library.Save this picture!DetailIn this room, the frank juxtaposition of a book collection with the view outside challenges the supposed dichotomy between nature and culture, implying that the coming together of opposites can be a prompt to dialogue. There could be no better summary of the spirit of this project.Save this picture!© Milo KellerProject gallerySee allShow less5 Ways to Prepare for Architecture School Over the SummerArticlesWhat is the American Dream Home in 2018?Architecture News Share Photographs Save this picture!© Milo Keller+ 23Curated by María Francisca González Share “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeTempesta TramparuloOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGrimisuatSwitzerlandPublished on June 25, 2018Cite: “Family Residence / Tempesta Tramparulo” 25 Jun 2018.

RSF_en News Organisation As part of a coalition with nine other NGOs, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is urging members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation group (APEC) to remind their Vietnamese partner of its international obligations during the APEC summit in Da Nang, in central Vietnam, on 11-12 November. Receive email alerts Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Related documents Letter to the 21 APEC member countries in EnglishPDF – 897.46 KBLetter to the 21 APEC member countries in VietnamesePDF – 905.42 KB News The summit’s official slogan, “Creating New Dynamism, Fostering a Shared Future,” seems far removed from reality because the decision to hold it in Da Nang constitutes an endorsement of the policies of a country that has waged an unprecedented crackdown on the freedom to inform in recent months.The Vietnamese government has systematically criminalized freedom of expression during the past year by means censorship, arbitrary detention and covert state violence. At least 25 bloggers have been arrested or deported.The #StopTheCrackdownVN coalition that RSF formed with nine other NGOS will hand in a letter today to the 21 APEC member countries alerting them to these violations of fundamental freedom and urging them to press Vietnam to respect its international obligations. These include its obligations as a member of APEC, whose goal is to “sustain the growth and development of the region for the common good of its peoples.”“The APEC summit is a forum in which member countries should question their partners about any failure to respect the organization’s rules,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“The ‘shared future’ that the 2017 meeting is supposed to promote cannot be built without paying special attention to respect for the freedom to inform and to be informed. As well as a fundamental right, it is one of the more reliable ways to guarantee the region’s harmonious development.”Forty university academics and researchers from all over the world have meanwhile just published a letter to leading Vietnamese officials urging them to release two women bloggers, Tran Thi Nga and Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh (also known as Me Nam), who were sentenced to nine and ten years in prison respectively this summer.And more than 60 Australian parliamentarians signed a letter to Vietnam’s ambassador to Canberra on 26 October calling on the Vietnamese government to honour its commitments under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Vietnam has been party since 1982.Thanks to this international campaign, the Vietnamese authorities may at last realize that it is in their own interest to promote the freedom to inform. If not, Vietnam will almost certainly remain near the bottom of RSF’s World Press Freedom Index, in which it is currently ranked 175th out of 180 countries.

ABC News (HOUSTON) — Officer assist. Suspects on the ground,” said the call from dispatch that came into Wendy Caldwell’s police car.The car’s sirens went on, and Caldwell was off racing through the streets of Houston, Texas.“He needs assistance,” Caldwell explained in an interview for the ABC News special “The Real Rookies.” “Sometimes the most difficult, dangerous part of it is actually getting to the call. So you’re going to go around, through, weave, make your way through to get there as safely as possible.”It’s a typical day for Caldwell, who’s a rookie police officer with the Houston Police Department. It’s also a job she had 25 years ago: Caldwell, who is 54 years old, is Houston’s oldest rookie copOn July 21, 1993, Caldwell, then 29, graduated from the police academy in the top 10 of her class and joined the mounted patrol division.“For me, it was the best job on the planet. Where else can you get to be a police officer and ride a horse in the same day? It was perfect for me,” said Caldwell.“She was somebody that was there, would have your back, take care of you if the situation dictated and knew her job, knew what she needed to do,” said Scott Berry, who was Caldwell’s partner on the job at the time.But three years into the department, Caldwell got pregnant and had her first child. She realized staying at home to raise her two children was more important to her at the time.“It was an extremely hard decision for me. I wanted to do both, but I realized that my children were more important,” Caldwell said. “That time that I got to spend with them was absolutely golden for me. I’ll never be able to replace that, so that’s something, those memories that I have with my kids, I’ll have forever.”However, by late 2015 to 2016, Caldwell was 52 years old, and her marriage of almost 20 years started to fall apart. She decided she had to figure out how to support herself.“I was holding a résumé that pretty much said ‘stay-at-home mom,’” said Caldwell. “So I knew that I had to do. It wasn’t going to be easy, but I knew that I had to do it.”Caldwell talked to a friend of hers who is a recruiting sergeant to see if she could return to the police force.“He said, ‘You’re eligible, but — you’d have to do the whole six and a half months (of police] academy again because we don’t have any lateral transfer classes, and you’ve been gone more than five years. Would you be willing to do that?’” she recalled. “I said, ‘Okay, let’s do this.’”“I think for most people, the six and a half months they spend in the police academy are the longest 10 years of their life. It’s grueling. It’s never-ending. It’s very difficult. It’s very stressful, mentally and physically,” said Michael Barton, Caldwell’s fellow cadet.“We want everyone held to the same standards, and when they announced a 52-year-old female is joining your police academy class, it’s like, ‘What is she doing here?’ It raises an eyebrow,’” said fellow cadet Robert Dougherty.Caldwell said the experience was an “all your eggs in one basket kind of thing for me.” She still had her strength, shooting abilities and driving skills, but there was the mental aspect of it that was tough for her.“Starting over, putting myself in that position again to wear that cadet uniform again, knowing that I had already earned this, that was hard. It was a mental game for me big time,” she said.Fellow cadets, who sometimes called her “grandma” or “nana,” said Caldwell was inspirational, but also a motivation not to fall behind, especially when it came to physical training.“I mean, if a 52-year-old woman is going to beat you, and you’re 25 years old, then that’s pretty embarrassing, quite frankly,” said Barton.Still, the course took its toll on Caldwell.“I remember one weekend, I was literally laying in the bed, crying, thinking, ‘I don’t know if I can do this. I don’t know if I’m going to make this,’” Caldwell said.At one point in the course, Caldwell’s leg was broken during redman training, an exercise designed to put cadets in a scenario where it feels like they’re fighting for their lives, Caldwell explained.“The thought that crossed my mind was, ‘I’m done. This is it. This is going to end it. I’m not going to be able to graduate. This is the biggest bone in your body. How are you going to come back from that?’” she said. “I had no idea, but my thought process was, ‘I’m done.’”But by the end of the training, Caldwell was allowed to graduate.“I knew I still had a ways to go. I still needed to complete my physical recuperation, but the fact that I had made it, and earned this badge and uniform again, it was a big deal. It was a really big deal,” she said.Caldwell graduated number 17 out of 67 and joined the Central Patrol Division for her permanent assignment.“I realize, that at 54 years of age, I’m not as fast as I used to be, my reaction times are probably a little bit slower, although I’m wiser in the aspect of I can see it coming before it gets there, so I guess it’s kind of a trade-off in that respect,” she said.“It was a difficult road to get here, but it was well worth the rewards.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

A patch of high phytoplankton biomass, approximately 109 m2 in area, remained apparently stationary off King George Island, South Shetland Islands, over a period of at least 11 days. The patch was centred on an eddy at the apex of a tight meander formed by water passing round the eastern end of King George Island and being turned back immediately by the strong northeastern flow of water within the Bransfield Strait. Chlorophyll a biomass approached 1 g m2 and was concentrated within the top 50–75 m of water. The community consisted mainly of diatoms, which were growing actively. Growth in situ might have been sufficient to generate the observed high biomass from the general concentration of phytoplankton observed locally but only if all production had been retained within the patch. However, elevated biomass downcurrent of the patch suggested that physical retention was only about 50% efficient. It is concluded that the patch was derived from a pulse of high biomass which had been transported into the area and partially retained by the horizontal recirculation of water within the eddy. Dominant diatom species, Odontella weissflogii, Proboscia ‘alata’, Chaetoceros curvisetum and Thalassiosira tumida, were also predominant in a phytoplankton maximum off Brabant Island, upcurrent of the study site. This may have provided the seed population for the patch off King George Island. Vertical migration may have prevented krill accumulation within the eddy and it is concluded that some shallow eddies may partially insulate phytoplankton communities from heavy grazing pressure.
