Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The number of flying hours plunged during the pandemic. Demand for Rolls-Royce’s jet engine sales and service fell sharply as well. The Rolls-Royce share price declined substantially year-to-date, and the company has had to issue more shares and bonds to firm up its finances. Lately, however, RR shares have rallied thanks to vaccine optimism. With the vaccines, many experts hope that things could return closer to normal in the developed world by the end of next year. Over the next several years, many hope the developing world will rebound as well. If that happened, the number of flying hours could increase and RR would benefit. 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…Given everything that’s happened in 2020, what’s next for Rolls-Royce as the year ends? Here’s what I think. Rolls-Royce shares: management’s plan for the futureIn terms of what’s next, management plans to continue to control costs and strengthen the balance sheet through asset divestment. Giving the projected cost savings and the projected rebound in flying hours globally, management has a target of at least £750m in free cash flow in 2022.In terms of their strategy going forward outside of their existing business lines, management has a long-term goal of targeting the short-haul jet engine market and also expanding into renewables. Expanding into the short-haul sector would open a larger potential target market for RR. That would bring more opportunities to generate free cash flow in the long run. In terms of its green energy push, RR CEO Warren East sees potential opportunities in zero carbon tech and renewables. Is the stock a buy?I don’t see Rolls-Royce shares as a bargain, given the current valuation and 2022 free cash flow projections. With all the uncertainty in aviation still remaining, I’m putting the shares on my watchlist. I’m bullish on air travel in the long term, and if there are unwarranted substantial dips in Rolls-Royce shares, I’d buy. Although I don’t believe RR is a bargain in terms of present free cash flow estimates, I nevertheless reckon there are potential upside drivers if certain things happen. I think one upside driver would be how management does in terms of its low carbon strategy. Although the generous valuations might not last, many green energy stocks have high valuations even though they might not necessarily deserve them financially. If Rolls-Royce does a good job in its green efforts or it is perceived as much more green, it could gain a higher valuation too. Longer term, I believe management’s success in controlling costs and growing into new markets matters a lot too. If management executes well in renewables and/or the short-haul market, I can see the company’s free cash flow outperforming expectations. If RR successfully and profitably grows outside of its existing markets, I think Rolls-Royce shares would be rewarding.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Bear House is on Cha-Am Beach, a famous seaside resort town in central Thailand, three hours drive from Bangkok. The brief is to renovate a three-storey building of eight metres wide and twenty-eight metres long, utilising an area of three-hundred and eighty square metres, turning it into a second home of the Sahawat family. When the interior construction started, in December 2011, the boy of the family was two years old. A baby was expected. In April 2012, Bear House was happily finished.

Located next to the slopes at Stoneham Resort, La Frangine is the result of the expansion and conversion of a former ski chalet into the main residence. The architectural part of the project consisted of keeping the existing cottage and designing a second separate building connected to the first one. As a big sister, the new section looks after the smaller one. Both buildings nicely connect by means of a glass passageway which allows natural light into the heart of the residence. From its façade, the building echoes the dimensions of the original cottage but extends deeper into the deciduous forest. This creates an intimate deck located at the back of the house.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletLittle Sister. The converted existing cottage serves as the main house and includes the dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. An artist’s studio is located on a mezzanine in the roof space. The mezzanine floor has been made into an open space above which a large dormer window has been integrated for natural lighting. Above the kitchen, hovers the artist’s studio filled with a gentle natural light. Bold new openings were added to the existing structure, which was enhanced by adding insulation to both the walls and roof.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletBig Sister. The extension becomes a private house and reproduces the roof slopes of the existing building, but with two full storeys. The ground floor integrates the garage and houses the main bedroom. Upstairs are the girls’ quarters with, on one side, an office space overlooking the mountain and, on the other side, a boudoir and covered patio at canopy height. The cathedral ceiling clad in eastern white cedar cuts through the extension and over the exterior spaces, enhancing a transparency effect.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletA Living Passageway. The passageway links the two sister houses. It is drawn between the two buildings and serves as a living room and passage. Its linear design continues into the buildings at each end. At one end, it is more spacious and serves as a larger main porch. At the other end, it acts as a secondary porch, giving direct and convenient access to the kitchen, the areas in the basement, and the patio.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletBetween Tradition and Modernity. The volume of the original cottage, saved and transformed, was the inspiration for the expansion. The addition of new openings, the choice of material, and the attention to architectural details bring a contemporary touch to the project without distorting the past. The tradition/modernity balance can also be felt through the addition of the one-storey, flat-roofed, inhabited passageway. At the back, the roof stretches and partially covers a large patio. A tree planted at the heart of the project symbolizes a second life for this former ski cottage and a fresh start for this new main residence.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletProject gallerySee allShow lessCasa DP / GN Architecture + Maresca InteriorsSelected ProjectsHouse Rowa / MADE architectsSelected Projects Share La Frangine Residence / Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/962572/la-frangine-residence-bourgeois-lechasseur-architectes Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBourgeois / Lechasseur architectesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesStoneham-et-TewkesburyOn FacebookCanadaPublished on May 31, 2021Cite: “La Frangine Residence / Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes” 31 May 2021.

‘Keep bigotry out of our bakery!’

first_imgA coalition of comrades and allies marched on June 10 in Detroit in the Motor City Pride parade, an event dominated by the banking and corporate institutions that have ignored and exploited LGBTQ+ people for decades.In an effort to bring the narrative of queer liberation back to its radical roots, Workers World Party members and others in the struggle engaged with Pride attendees, staffing a booth at the Pride festival on June 9 and 10 and drawing large groups of visitors, despite the remote location we were assigned.The Detroit WWP branch, which has maintained a presence at Pride for years, connected the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights to the issues of racial and economic inequality nationally and internationally. Members reminded all who heard us that the struggle is not over and invited everyone to a forum on Stonewall the following weekend.Despite heavy marketing and propaganda at the event, comrades received enthusiastic responses from the queer community. Chants of “Keep your bigotry out of our bakery!” and “We’re here! We’re queer! Immigrants are welcome here!” were met with cheers and applause, with many onlookers joining in.Despite funding from the banks and companies that are ravaging Detroit, the police presence and even active recruiting, and a clear capitalist message, Motor City Pride retained radical, communist voices like the ones who started the LGBTQ movement nearly 50 years ago.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Boost for HR as IPD wins charter status

first_imgThe IPD’s victory in its six-year battle to gain chartered status has beenhailed as a massive boost for the personnel profession. From 1 July the organisation will be able to call itself the CharteredInstitute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), putting HR professionals on apar with accountants and marketeers and making the institute the third largestchartered professional organisation in the UK.Already senior personnel practitioners are saying the move will give HR moreclout and attract more talent to the profession.But it could still take years before members can individually becomechartered. The institute is yet to decide the qualification criteria forgranting this status.For now IPD-accredited professionals will be able to call themselvesmembers, fellows or associates of the CIPD. The institute will now focus on arebranding exercise in the run-up to 1 July and has promised that funds forthis have already been allocated and subscriptions will not be increased as aresult. Disciplinary procedures remain unchanged.Leading practitioners welcomed the Privy Council’s decision but said it wasnow up to the profession to deliver the high standards that chartered statusconfers.”This raises the status and raises the stakes,” said Bruce Warman,personnel director at Vauxhall Motors. “If it works we have a great future– if we do not then we only have ourselves to blame.”Geoff Armstrong, director general of the IPD, who has crusaded for charteredstatus, said, “It recognises that people management and development is adistinctive, systematically learnable body of knowledge, understanding andcompetence which adds value to organisations.”By Philip WhiteleyOther chartered institutes: number of membersInstitute of Chartered Accountants 116,000Chartered Institute of Management Accountants 110,000Institute of Personnel and Development 95,000 Chartered Institute of Bankers 50,000 Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators 45,000 Chartered Institute of Marketing 31,175 Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.
