The Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price is enjoying its day in the sun, jumping almost 7% after it posted a better-than-expected £1.1bn profit for the third quarter. The big banks have not enjoyed much good news lately, so relish this moment.On February 2007, the Barclays share price hit its all-time high of 790p. Today, it stands at 111p, as the financial crisis and now Covid-19 have done their worst. Yet many will be tempted by today’s low valuation, and so am I. This could be a good time to pick up its stock, ahead of a recovery.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…Despite the pandemic, Barclays has now delivered a year-to-date group profit before tax of £2.4bn. That is down 27% from last year’s £3.3bn, although the actual fall is even more painful, because Q3 last year saw a £1.4bn PPI impairment charge.FTSE 100 bank opportunityThird-quarter UK income fell 16% to £1.6bn year-on-year, but the good news is that it was 6% higher than in the second quarter. If you think banking stocks have been oversold and could rebound when the pandemic eases, then check out the Barclays share price. It now trades at a mere 7.29 times earnings, with a price-to-book value of just 0.3. That is deep into bargain territory. Then again, it has looked like a bargain before, only to fall further.The UK economy is in for a difficult winter, as Covid-19 wreaks political and economic havoc. Low interest rates are squeezing net interest margins, the difference between what banks charge to lend money and pay to savers, and this could last for years. If the Bank of England introduces negative interest rates, as threatened, it could get worse. Customer borrowing is falling and lower interest rates are reducing loan profitability, both for high street and commercial lending. Today’s figures weren’t as bad as expected on that front, although Barclays suspects many defaults have been pushed back by government support.I’d buy the Barclays share price todayThe bank’s investment banking arm has been boosted from the pandemic. Advice fee income has jumped, as companies rush to place rights issues and raise funds to protect their balance sheets. Stock market volatility has also boosted trader activity. Barclays International’s income is up 1% year-on-year, to £3.8bn. That’s ironic, given activist investor Edward Bramson’s push for Barclays to divest its business in this area. Management looks vindicated for holding firm.Barclays axed its dividend along with all the other FTSE 100 banks at the start of the pandemic, but the board will review its decision at the end of the financial year. A restored payout would give the Barclays share price a much-needed boost. However, political factors also come into play. The Bank of England might decide that banks restarting dividends will not be a good look if the economy is tanking.The Barclays share price looks cheap, despite today’s jump. On a five or 10-year view, it looks a buy to me. Image source: Getty Images The Barclays share price is up 7% today! Here’s what I’d do right now See all posts by Harvey Joneslast_img read more

The Quota House / Pluskontoret Arkitekter

first_img “COPY” Photographs:  Jesper Ray, Helene Høyer Mikkelsen Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•Nyborg, Denmark Manufacturers: Louis Poulsen, Troldtekt, Danfoss, Egernsund Tegl, Gustavsberg, Hager, Rationel Products translation missing: Houses Area:  138 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Products used in this ProjectLightsLouis PoulsenLamps – AJ CollectionSave this picture!© Jesper RayText description provided by the architects. The Quota House is part of a large development project: The MiniCO2 Houses. The project involves a total of six detached houses, each of which illustrates various aspects of reducing CO2 emissions in the construction, use and maintenance of a house.The Quota House focuses on occupant behaviour and patterns of consumption, examining the degree to which carbon emissions can be reduced when the occupants are supported in more environmentally friendly behaviour – including the adoption of a quota system, a form of “budget” account which sets a clear, low target for the maximum carbon emissions the occupants should aim for each month.Save this picture!© Helene Høyer MikkelsenThere are three ways in which the house and its occupants can help to reduce CO2 consumption: Firstly, via the architecture ofthe building, with functions suitably located in relation to daylight and solar orientation and to the need for privacy and family togetherness. Secondly, via built-in technology the house monitors and provides feedback on the consumption of electricity, heating and hot and cold water. And finally, by the occupants voluntarily observing an energy quota, which sets a maximum monthly target for the amount of CO2 they emit.Save this picture!Floor PlanIn the middle of the house is the so-called Climate Belt, a zone through which the occupants pass frequently during the course of the day. This is where they find the building’s information display, which conveniently lists consumption of electricity, water and heating, which can be read at any time and checked against the family’s daily and monthly quota.Below the screen is the house’s emergency start button, in all senses a central element of life in the Quota House. If the family has exceeded its energy quota, the house shuts down. However, pressing the start button instantly reactivates all systems – but pushing the button also reminds occupants that they have exceeded their energy quota and must begin “putting energy aside” for next month.Save this picture!© Jesper RayBehaviour-Influencing ParametersSmarter occupant behaviour combined with an overall vision to reduce carbon emissions has been incorporated into the design of the house. This means that: The Quota House sets a limit on the monthly level of carbon emissions for which the occupants are responsible. The Quota House has built-in technology which helps occupants to turn off lights, switch on heating and ventilate at the appropriate times – and keeps them updated on the amount of energy they have used. The design of the Quota House makes it easier to conserve energy, e.g. via a covered outdoor drying courtyard which saves on tumble drying, a larder which saves on refrigerator space and a multimedia room which provides space for a more conscious use of electronic media instead of the traditional central location in the living room. Save this picture!DetailReducing Carbon Emissions The Quota House is not yet occupied. No specific calculations are therefore available yet of a family’s energy consumption. But life-cycle analysis figures prepared in co-operation with researchers at SBi, the Danish Building Research Institute, suggest that it will be possible to make significant reductions in the total consumption of electricity and heating – and therefore in carbon emissions.Save this picture!© Helene Høyer MikkelsenCO2 emissions stemming from consumption of electricity and heating during the service life of the Quota House are 15 and 10 kg of CO2/m²/year respectively over a 50-year period. For the Reference House, the corresponding figures are 24 kg of CO2/m²/year for consumed electricity and 13 kg of CO2/m²/year for consumed heating. Material consumption for the life cycle of the structure of the Quota House is 6 kg CO2/m²/year, i.e. slightly higher than the equivalent figures for the Reference House (5 kg CO2/m²/year over a 50-year period).Save this picture!ElevationThe MiniCO2 Houses Development ProjectThe Maintenance-Free House is one of six demonstration homes built in the coastal town of Nyborg in central Denmark. Five of the houses examine various ways of reducing carbon emissions; the sixth house brings these experiences together.Save this picture!© Helene Høyer MikkelsenFor many years, the efforts of the building industry to reduce CO2 emissions – not without reason – have focused on energy for heating and therefore also on airtightness and insulation. However, as national and EU building requirements become ever stricter in this area, it becomes relevant to examine how the industry can also reduce carbon emissions – for example, in terms of materials and of user behaviour.Save this picture!© Jesper RayThe main objective of the MiniCO2 Houses development project is thus to reduce CO2 emissions in the construction, operation and maintenance of a house. The six houses share the same overall principles: Building type: Single-family detached home Size: 130 to 172 m² Energy guidelines: Danish 2015 Standards Budget: Normal economy Architectural design: Broad appeal Future: Sale of the house after completed experiment Save this picture!© Jesper RayProject gallerySee allShow lessForest House / NORM ArchitectsSelected ProjectsNew BIG-Designed Neighborhood to Activate Aarhus’ WaterfrontUnbuilt Project Share Save this picture!© Jesper Ray Share Photographs Denmark “COPY” Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2013 The Quota House / Pluskontoret Arkitekter Architects: Pluskontoret Arkitekter Area Area of this architecture project The Quota House / Pluskontoret ArkitekterSave this projectSaveThe Quota House / Pluskontoret Arkitekter ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officePluskontoret ArkitekterOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNyborgDenmarkPublished on September 26, 2014Cite: “The Quota House / Pluskontoret Arkitekter” 26 Sep 2014.

Mumia Abu-Jamal on ‘An Abolitionist Life’

first_imgWhat does it mean to call oneself an abolitionist?The word doesn’t mean today what it meant 150 years ago. Then, it meant an end to what some have called “America’s Original Sin” — Slavery.Today? Well, it’s not a common term today, but it should be. Abolition was the nation’s first biracial movement, built by both Blacks and whites, to oppose the evils of Slavery.But it’s important for us today to recognize that when abolitionists were active, during the 1830s, 1840s and 1850s, they were portrayed in the press, and spoken about by prominent and powerful men, as madmen and crazy women, who dared to oppose something so fundamental to American wealth like Slavery.Abraham Lincoln, speaking at New York’s Cooper Union before his election, depicted the radical abolitionist, John Brown, as a madman and not a member of the Republican Party.It was only after the U.S. Civil War that abolitionists were regarded as sane people — not before.There is a lesson here for you all, people at the Abolitionist Forum. That is, don’t worry about what people in power or media say about you.Ask yourself if what you’re doing is right — then roll with it.It’s right to oppose mass incarceration.It’s right to seek to abolish the racist death penalty.It’s right to fight against state repression.And the right time to do that — is Now!Mumia Abu-Jamal © 2017This talk was originally delivered via recording to a Harlem Abolition Forum to counter police violence on Oct. 1.

The ‘sales party’ will continue until March, predicts Winkworth
