Shares of BP (LSE:BP) rallied yesterday, for a few reasons. OPEC+ decided to extend their oil production cuts for one more month. The future generally for oil companies is looking better as result of the gradual reopening of economies worldwide. And, the company decided to cut some jobs.Will these positive influences continue, making the BP shares a buy right now? 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…BP’s sharesYesterday there was a great rally for oil stocks generally as result of the OPEC+ announcement and better economic outlook. BP’s rally could also be attributed to news the company cut 10,000 jobs. This might seem like a worrying sign for many investors, but it should allow the company to conserve cash and become leaner and fitter. As you can see from the graph above, the BP shares have recovered somewhat, but they have not fully recovered from their March lows. Of course, the coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns kept many people at home and many businesses shut. So, demand for oil plunged to record low levels. Oil futures have not fully recovered either.BP’s futureEven though I like being a contrarian investor, I am still quite sceptical about the industries hardest hit by the Covid-19 crisis. This is because the second wave of infections might be more dramatic than the first. I think the likelihood of a second Covid-19 wave is quite high. As a result of early reopenings, there is already a record number of hospitalisations in Texas. Unfortunately, this is probably just the beginning.Eventually, the industries most hit by the Covid-19 will eventually recover, including the oil industry. However, I believe that only the fittest will survive. It seems to me that BP is an excellent example of a company that will survive and flourish due to its size and financials.The oil company’s fundamentalsBP is one of the largest oil companies in the world with a long operating history. It enjoys a high investment-grade credit rating issued by Moody’s. The operating performance of the company has recently deteriorated due to low oil prices, but the company is planning to cut costs by $2.5bn by 2021. At the same time, the company is trying to raise more cash. For example, it decided to sell its Alaska assets. The company’s 2020 investments will even decrease by 25% to save cash and lower operating costs. The fact that BP did not cancel its dividend payments is also a comforting sign for shareholders.This is what I’d nowIn my view, healthy best-in-class companies should be bought at every possible correction. I would probably prefer BP’s shares to move lower for me to buy them. It is not usually a good idea to buy shares during a market rally. At the same time I’d recommend buying such companies for the long term. This is because the economic outlook is still uncertain and I think that investors might have to be patient. But I am sure brave long-term investors that are willing to buy and hold will eventually benefit. But there are many other good FTSE 100 companies to be bought now for a diversified income portfolio.

The Novacyt (LSE:NYCT) share price really started getting traction back in the early part of 2020. It means a £12,500 investment in the Anglo-French pharma group at the turn of the year would today be worth £773,125.If you got in early, it’s probably been one of the best performers of your investing life.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…Where it startedDon’t beat yourself up too much if you missed out. In January 2020 there was little market excitement around Novacyt.It certainly didn’t have multi-million pound recurring contracts with almost every government on the planet. It was just one of those small UK-listed pharma companies struggling to make its voice heard.It hadn’t reported a profit in any of the previous five years. It had a market value of less than £10m (that’s up to £550m today).At the time, its molecular diagnostics division, Primerdesign Ltd, was reporting contracts for identifying shellfish health in the French food supply chain. That’s not the kind of thing that gets investors hot under the collar.Novacyt share price goes boomOn 31 January everything changed. When the Covid outbreak happened, Novacyt spotted its chance. Primerdesign used its molecular testing expertise to design and launch a new test for the novel coronavirus.The orders started flying in by the tens of thousands. Then the hundreds of thousands. Primerdesign’s coronavirus test won a CE-Mark, the safety standard for health products in the European Economic Area.No wonder that by the end of February CEO Graham Mullins was “extremely pleased with the commercial interest shown in our test to date“.And as Primerdesign turned this interest into huge sales, the Novacyt share price rocketed. India, Argentina, the Philippines, and the coveted US market all fell into line.Is Novacyt a buy in 2020?Investors like me see the Novacyt share price having risen over 6,185% and are likely to jump to one conclusion. That prices have already risen so much, there’s little value left in me buying in now.But what do the financials show?Company accounts for the first half of 2020 show a company now with a very healthy €46m profit. That’s compared to a €1.2m loss for the first half of 2019. Revenue surged tenfold over the same period, from €7.2m to €72.4m.Primerdesign has rapidly expanded the suite of products available to businesses and governments to include PCR two-gene target tests for Covid-19, trademarked exsig Covid-19 direct testing kits and many more.And Graham Mullins has told the market that its “transformational” revenues will continue long into 2021.So what now?For those of you still reading, the question you want answered is where there’s still value in the Novacyt share price today? I’d say yes. Just because a share has risen a lot doesn’t mean it can’t continue. And especially so with all its extra product lines on offer.Just look at Astrazeneca. Between the start of 1995 and the end of 1996, the FTSE 100 multinational saw its share price rise nearly 100% from 850p to 1,607p. But if I’d sold then, I would have missed out on another 425% gain to today’s 8,440p price.If you’re generally more risk-averse and you favour FTSE 100 dividend payers, this might not be the share for you. But fancy a medium-term punt? I’d go for it. See all posts by Tom Rodgers

(The first in the series is here.)Under an agreement Congress reached in 2011, a variety of federal programs that benefit tens-of-millions of people living in poverty at home and around the world will face automatic cuts of 8.2 percent if Congress fails to agree by the end of the year on a balanced approach to alleviating our national deficit.Congress has already cut the International Affairs Budget (which includes nearly all international poverty-focused development assistance) by 15 percent over the last two years; International Affairs is now only one percent of the federal budget.Contact your members of congress TODAY – express your concern for the people affected by the deep cuts to international poverty-focused development assistance programs forced by the sequester.What is at stake for impoverished people around the world if Congress makes an additional 8.2 percent ($4.7 billion) cut to these programs?Food Assistance: Food for Peace and other U.S. food aid programs feed 66 million vulnerable people and more than 5 million hungry school children each year. If the 8.2 percent cut takes effect, 3.33 million people and 377,200 children will have their access to lifesaving food aid and school feeding programs reduced or denied.HIV/AIDS Treatment and Prevention: Every year 4 million people living with HIV or AIDS receive lifesaving antiretroviral treatments from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and other global health programs. An 8.2 percent cut would cause 276,500 fewer people to receive treatment for HIV/AIDS, including 112,500 fewer HIV-positive pregnant women. This could cause up to 63,000 more AIDS-related deaths and 21,000 more infants infected with HIV at birth.Malaria Prevention: Under an 8.2 percent cut to the President’s Malaria Initiative and other global health programs, 2.2 million fewer insecticide-treated nets would be distributed to families and communities vulnerable to malaria at a time when nets distributed over the past several years by NetsforLife® and other initiatives must now be replaced.Refugee Assistance: There are an estimated 15.3 million refugees worldwide. The Migration and Refugee Assistance (MRA) account provides lifesaving services including food, health care, water, sanitation, and shelter for refugees in protracted situations and emergency crises. The proposed 8.2 percent cut to the MRA account would endanger this lifesaving assistance for refugees, as well as put at risk programs that help make refugee populations self-sufficient and less reliant on long-term aid.Tell Congress that you care how these cuts will affect the world’s poorest and most vulnerable.

The bishops approved the resolution, entitled Ethical Investing in Gun Manufacturers, without debate on its consent agenda.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.Under the resolution, the 79th General Convention would direct the Executive Council Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility (CCSR) to “develop and implement a shareholder engagement plan” for dioceses, church organizations and individual Episcopalians investing in publicly traded stock of gun manufacturers and retailers. The plan would provide guidance for how to effect change in these companies through shareholder advocacy to reduce lethal and criminal uses of their products.The Episcopal Church has long been an advocate for socially responsible investing in gun manufacturers. For example, the church’s Executive Council in late January authorized its Committee on Corporate and Social Responsibility to join an attempt to convince Dick’s Sporting Goods to abide by the Sandy Hook Principles developed to stem the tide of gun violence. A little more than a month later, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based retailer announced Feb. 28 that it would stop selling assault weapons at its 35 Field & Stream stores.The company had removed them from all Dick’s stores after the Sandy Hook massacre. The company also said it would no longer sell firearms to anyone younger than 21, and it would no longer sell high-capacity magazines. And, Dick’s said, it has never and will never sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly.The shareholder activism of the Episcopal Church and other religious institutional investors was not the sole cause of Dick’s decision, but those involved say it had some influence on a company that was considering a change.In a second resolution related to ethical investing, the House of Bishops also approved Resolution D068 that asks the CCSR to consult with related groups engaged with human rights and the care of creation to develop and propose criteria to the Executive Council to use in assessing investments in companies found inconsistent with the church’s faith and mission or questionable under the church’s ethical teachings.CCSR is also directed to evaluate the effectiveness of divestment through the creation of a No Buy List from these companies and procedures for the church to follow in making a decision to engage companies or to establish a No Buy list.– Mike Patterson is a San Antonio-based freelance writer and correspondent for the Episcopal News Service.

The group of three doctors will take some supplies on this week-long exploratory trip. After they assess the initial needs, a second group of physicians will join them next week and provide needed relief items. After the two-week exploratory period, the group will help develop a long-term response plan. In addition to being born and raised in Puerto Rico, the physicians were also trained in Puerto Rico, and able to practice medicine in the island. After their initial visit to Hospital UPR Dr. Federico Trilla, the physicians will venture into some of the rugged parts of the island to provide needed medical efforts to small communities without healthcare facilities. “We’re emergency medicine physicians with training in disaster, so I don’t think there’s a better specialist to be helping the people of Puerto Rico right now. We’re Spanish-speaking island natives, and we know the culture and geography of the island, so it’s easier for us to get to those places other teams are not able to reach,” said Dr. Katia Lugo, emergency care physician at Florida Hospital.

The key ambition of the client was to push the conventions of the New Zealand house. The client was also the builder and was interested in something that was a challenge to build. His brief called for a large house, even though the site is very small and the residential rules in the area fairly severe. This led to the development of a courtyard house, compressed into the small site and composed of three levels. Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe local rules, which promote suburban houses in the middle of the site, were put under pressure and the consent process involved a great deal of negotiation. Conceptually the house developed as an active response to the taut geological and aesthetic context of Wellington; the city is amongst steep hills that are shaped by the meeting of the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates, and the architecture here is vertical and tough in response. This drove the decision to use heavy concrete elements that appear to have been jolted by large forces.Save this picture!Street level planThese concrete screens are arranged in various dynamic ways; leaning, elevated or floating and form the outer carapace to the house. Within this, courtyards are separated off by glass, which threads between the concrete screens. This brings the house in active and equivalent relationship with the landscape; the house is considered to flow to the limits of the site and the activities within it are part of a single space. Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThis makes for a dynamic social arrangement but the home has areas of intimacy and varying degrees of privacy to suit how the client wants to live in each area; it is conceptually one space but varies in intensity. The house is part of an ongoing research project and has only been possible due to the irrepressible enthusiasm and energy of its owner/ builder. It was completed in October 2011.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieProject gallerySee allShow lessSymposium Metropoles du sud 2012ArticlesQuatrier M / Delugan Meissl Associated ArchitectsArticles Share Concrete House / Simon Twose 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/188547/concrete-house-simon-twose Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSimon TwoseOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWellingtonHousesNew ZealandPublished on December 03, 2011Cite: “Concrete House / Simon Twose” 03 Dec 2011.

Located in the Baptist College neighborhood, in Belo Horizonte, MG, Zider is a project of critical response to demand from depleting the constructive potential in a lot of non-usual proportions.Save this picture!© Izabel DinizBecause of the fragmentation of large tracts of land, most of the lots in the city has 360 m2 and a rectangle 12 meters tested by 30 long. On the one hand this geometry creates a desirable relationship between the design possibilities within a batch and a number of lots to be filled – in every street – the urban infrastructure, on the other, the existence of any number of lots with dimensions identical previous open to the repetition of types of multi-family residential buildings, whose projects do not always have a desired architectural quality. Thus, a lot to present a variation in the dimensions mentioned is not always valued.Save this picture!DiagramLot Zider has 10 meters tested by 40 long. Your building potential is 680 m2, considering the multiplication of its area by 1.7. This amount of net area that can be built led to the creation of eight units. Considering the increase in spatial quality provided by terraces adjacent to the apartments, the units accessed at ground level are designed as two-level studio, with the first located the social area and services, and in the second room. Thus, it enables the creation of a larger number of units in the projection of the building with four studios, all with private area. Above, there is a deck with two units, and finally, two duplexes with cover. Thus, the eight residential apartments, six have a private area.Save this picture!© Izabel DinizThe residential project is based, as stated, to refute the logic of the real estate market development apartment-type, separating the ratio of each unit of its space potential across the project proposal, as the increase in the level of the number of apartments ground to own private area. Thus, it creates a project with the following units: Studio 01 – duplex with private area, double height in the social area and three bedrooms; Studio 02 – duplex with private area and two bedrooms (two suites); Studio 03 – duplex with private area and two bedrooms (two suites); Studio 04 – duplex more private area, double height in the social area and three bedrooms; Apartment 05 – unit with three bedrooms; Apartment 06 – unit with three bedrooms; Apartment 07 – unit with private area, double height in the social area, three bedrooms and an extra room; Apartment 08 – unit with private area, double height in the social area, three bedrooms and an extra room. Save this picture!Axonometric ProjectionAlthough there is no standard apartments, this project condition does not cause the adopted solution is more costly, financially. Considering that the building is designed to be built in self-supporting masonry walls of different floors are the same, despite the creation of various internal spatial relationships. Furthermore, rooms that require health infrastructure have been leased adjacent to one of the walls, allowing the creation of power and depletion of plumb.Save this picture!© Izabel DinizAnother point to note refers to the image of the building. In terms of coating, applied externally was ecogranito in light gray color, showing the portion of the building that are rented studios and the other in graphite color, with apartments of a pavement.

Spearheaded by a struggle of fast food workers that began more than six years ago, New York City has finally put into practice a $15-an-hour minimum wage. “Fifteen dollars an hour is catching on everywhere,” commented Jorel Ware, a McDonald’s worker from New York and member of Fight for $15. “When we first went on strike in New York in 2012, people said we had no chance, but we are showing the whole country that when workers stick together, there’s no such thing as impossible.”Low-wage fast food workers occupied McDonald’s in Times Square on December 15, 2013When their struggle began, fast food and other low-paid workers in the city were getting only $7.25 an hour — if that. Since then, the cost of living in the city has soared, led by skyrocketing rents. Earning $15 an hour is a big improvement, but it still falls far short of what workers in this city need to have a stable existence.This struggle has been led mainly by Black and Latinx workers, a majority of them women, with the help of the Service Employees union. These very oppressed workers have helped lift up all those who are low paid and in so doing are forging multinational unity, at a time when the government and the ruling class are trying every racist, sexist, anti-immigrant trick in the book to divide workers.Solidarity forever!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
