The economic impact of coronavirus is likely to be significant, and it’s currently unclear when the pandemic will end.Some FTSE 100 companies, however, appear to have the financial strength to overcome these short-term risks. What’s more, their strong brands and durable competitive advantages could lead them to produce significant returns for investors over the next few 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…As such, now could be the time to buy a range of these FTSE 100 stocks while they offer a wide margin of safety.FTSE 100 growth championJD Sports Fashion (LSE: JD) is one of the FTSE 100’s most successful growth stocks of the past decade. Unfortunately, the group, which has a large brick and mortar retail footprint, is suffering significantly in the coronavirus crisis. It has had to close most of its stores across Europe.But JD Sport’s reputation is its most valuable asset. The retailer has become the go-to destination for trainers and sportswear. That’s unlikely to change because of the crisis.As such, the FTSE 100 stock, which is down 35% year-to-date, appears to offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.The coronavirus crisis is unlikely to hurt JD’s brand and, when the crisis is over, shoppers are likely to return. This suggests the business will continue to create value for investors in the long run. That’s why the current decline may be an excellent opportunity for long term investors.Booming businessFlutter Entertainment (LSE: FLTR) is one of the few FTSE 100 companies that’s seeing revenues grow this year.In the three months to the end of March, group revenues increased 16% year-on-year. However, after the cancellation of major sporting events across Europe, sports betting revenue declined by around two-thirds.This decline has been offset, to some extent, by an increase in online gaming revenue. A rise of 15% here shows the strengths of this business.As well as its diversified revenue base, the FTSE 100 growth champion also has plenty of financial resources to weather the storm. The group had net cash and undrawn financing facilities of £460m as of at the end of March.Flutter also recently completed the acquisition of Canadian online gaming firm Stars Group. This acquisition will expand the company’s presence in online casino games, which should provide further diversification against sporting events disruption.Considering all of the above, now could be an excellent time for long-term investors to snap up a share in this gambling giant. A dividend yield of 2.2% is also desirable in the current interest rate environment.As the company is still earning money from its online gaming operations and has plenty of cash on the balance sheet, it looks as if this dividend is here to stay.last_img read more

Just like the Siedlung Halen did back then, the “urban island” on the Areal Giessen site on Lake Zurich translates the village motif into a contemporary form. Ten houses with 34 freehold ats and up to eight commercial units were built in Meilen in to- tal. Even though the design is clearly based on the countryside character of the place, its abstract, geometrical shape creates a dialectic tension with the surrounding landscape. The residential units have been arranged densely on a narrow rectangular plot, forming an island in the landscape of Lake Zurich. The residential buildings have been arranged on the plot like on a chessboard and in a staggered order, so that all ats have a view of the lake. The terraces and staircases provide a range of different vistas on the lake.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe new residential site is characterised by its compact urban design and the interaction between narrow alleys and broad, semi-private open spaces. A network of paths and streets as well as a small public square with sycamore trees at the centre of the estate give the Areal Giessen site an urban feel.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerAbove this square are the “pocket park” and a playground, which are accessible to all property owners.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Stefan MüllerThis deliberate arrangement of public and private spaces also extends into the buildings. Different spatial layers within the  ats, ranging from the private area of the bedrooms to the living and dining areas facing towards the south, provide a 180-de- gree view of the surroundings. The  ats on the Areal Giessen site have sizes of up to 257 sqm and contain 2.5 to 7.5 rooms each. Every  at has its own individual, generously sized outdoor area facing to the south – either a roof-deck, a loggia or a pri- vate garden. Beneath the buildings, hidden under the slope, there is a basement garage from which all  ats can be accessed. Every building also has a separate entrance. Sustainability, good noise insulation, and accessibility as well as spacious eleva- tors were important factors in the design process.Save this picture!© Stefan MüllerProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Law Courts / Baumschlager Eberle Architectes + Atelier Pierre ChampenoisSelected ProjectsJ House / Pitsou Kedem ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bergstrasse, 8706 Meilen, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Anolivebranch.co.uk’s survey found that 45% of people put children’s charities at the top of their festive giving list, followed by charities for homeless people, and then animals and disability charities.The survey found that women were more generous, with 61% giving regularly compared to 54% of men.Women living in the West Midlands are the most likely to give their cash to charity, alongside men in Northern Ireland. Men and women in Wales were the least likely to donate.“What is most worrying for charities is that people are planning to donate less next year,” said Nathan Branch, founder of www.anolivebranch.co.uk. He added that charities needed to look at innovative ways to raise funds, and suggested that anolivebranch.co.uk was one way to do so.The site already raises funds for large charities such as Save The Children, Shelter, RSPB and Mencap.www.anolivebranch.co.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 5 December 2008 | Newslast_img read more

They were enraged about the clear victory of former President Joseph Kabila’s coalition, the Common Front for the Congo (FCC), in the previous day’s senate elections and were going to the homes of some of their own party’s leaders, whom they accuse of being bribed by Kabila’s coalition.

‘He was killed within four hours of being in the city,’ mother says of PhD student fatally shot by stray bullet in Chicago

first_imgVincent Perez(CHICAGO) — A Northwestern University doctoral student who beat cancer was one of six people shot to death over the weekend in Chicago, gunned down by a stray bullet when he walked into the middle of a gunfight just four hours after arriving in the city to start school, police and his mother said.Shane Colombo, 25, was killed Sunday in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago while on an errand to buy clothes hangers, said his mother, Tonya Colombo of Menifee, California.“He was a bright, beautiful, amazing son. And he was so loving,” the tearful mother told ABC News on Tuesday, minutes after identifying her son at the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office in Chicago.Shane Colombo was fatally shot at about 8:25 p.m. on Sunday, when got caught in the crossfire of a gun battle between two people, according to officials at the Chicago Police Department. He was shot once in the abdomen and taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois, where he died, police said.Police were working Tuesday to identify suspects in Colombo’s killing, but no arrests were made.He was one of a half-dozen people shot dead in Chicago over the long Labor Day weekend, police said. The other homicide victims ranged in age from 18 to 41, and included two women.Tonya Colombo said her son had just arrived in Chicago to live with his fiancé, Vincent Perez.“I was very concerned about him coming out here, and he was killed within four hours of being in the city, four hours of stepping off that plane,” Colombo’s mother told ABC News.“I put him on a plane that morning at 10 a.m. [in California] and I kissed him good-bye, and that was the last time I saw him alive,” she said.Shane Colombo was preparing to pursue his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Northwestern University, in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, his mother said.“He was so passionate about what he was doing,” she said. “He was going to be a doctor. He wanted to do clinical research. He wanted to give people answers.”He had spent the past two years living in New York City, where he was a researcher at Columbia University’s Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab, his mother said. He earned a bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University in 2016.Tonya Colombo said her son survived a battle with lymphoma when he was 15 years old.“He beat cancer and he pushed himself through high school after missing a year,” she said. “He pushed himself through college on his own. And came to Chicago to get his Ph.D. He got a full scholarship to Northwestern. He didn’t depend on me to go to school. He depended on himself.”Northwestern President Morton Schapiro called Colombo’s death a “terrible loss for our community.”In a joint statement, Teresa K. Woodruff, dean of The Graduate School at Northwestern, and Adrian Randolph, dean of the university’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, said, “Our hearts and minds are with Shane’s loved ones during this difficult time.”“Both of us live in or near Rogers Park, and it saddens us that this event occurred in the vibrant and caring community that we share with many of our fellow members of Northwestern,” Randolph and Woodruff said in their statement. “It also saddens us that the world will not one day be able to benefit from the research Shane was about to pursue.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Flexible working thwarted by IT

first_imgEffortsby HR departments to promote flexible working are being hindered byunco-operative IT departments, a new report claims.Nextra,the UK arm of Norwegian telecoms company Telenor, surveyed 1,000 HR directorsand found most were battling with IT departments over the amount of supportflexible workers needed.Only4 per cent of those surveyed believe their IT department actively promotesflexible working, although 42 per cent say their HR department does. The HRprofessionals claim IT see supporting flexible workers as an additional drainon valuable time and resources.Ofthose polled, 57 per cent have flexible working guidelines in place, while aquarter say the board actively promotes the working practice.BarryHartop, chief executive of Nextra UK, said: “IT departments are already usingtheir resources to the maximum supporting workers physically within theorganisation. Supporting remote workers brings a whole new set of headaches,especially in terms of providing the sort of 24/7 helpdesk support and hardwearmaintenance that flexible workers require.”Hesaid IT departments may need to be outsourced or have staff levels boosted tocope with the demands of changing working practices.“Issuingguidelines and voicing support is only part of the battle,” Hartop said.
