I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. FTSE 250 IT infrastructure and services provider Computacenter (LSE: CCC) has been a consistent performer for years delivering generally rising revenue, earnings, cash flow and shareholder dividends.But the stock is down today on the release of the full-year results report and it’s been falling since early February, down around 30% now from its peak back then. Of course, there’s nothing unusual about that move because many other stocks are falling too. And many investors are fretting about how much the Covid-19 outbreak can affect the economy and the businesses behind shares.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…Uncertainty immediately aheadChief executive Mike Norris commented in the report that the virus makes forecasting the future “even more challenging.” In the short term, he says Computacenter is “urgently” supporting its customers with their business continuity plans. Often those require more remote working. And that has led to a “surge” in demand for laptop computers, he said.However, so far supply constraints have been “minimal”, although he has “concerns” about the future.  He’s also thinks that in the medium term, customers may postpone “significant” IT infrastructure projects while uncertainty remains. Naturally, he’s bullish about the longer-term outlook after Covid-19 has faded into history.So I reckon the market is being rational by marking down Computacenter’s shares. There could be significant disruption to the business for a long time because of the coronavirus. But I’m watching the stock because of its apparent defensive and cash-generating characteristics.In ‘normal’ times, the share price had been flying to reflect the steady operational progress. Even now after recent declines, the share price is around 250% higher than it was 10 years ago, and shareholders have enjoyed a rising stream of dividend income along the way as well.Impressive figures will be hard to beatFor what it’s worth, today’s figures are impressive. Overall revenue rose by just over 16% compared to the prior year, adjusted diluted earnings per share moved more than 22% higher, and net cash from operations shot up by a little over 75%. The directors slapped just over 22% on the total shareholder dividend for the year.However, the top management team appears to expect growth rates to decline in 2020. The company said that “it may well be difficult to achieve the same growth rates we have seen in recent years.” But the pipeline is “strong” in both Professional and Managed Services. And the directors think customers will continue to invest in the firm’s product, “particularly in the areas of Security, Networking and Cloud.”One of the things I admire most about Computacenter is its steady cash performance and cash-rich balance sheet. I reckon the firm is well placed to overcome current challenges in the market and could make an enduring long-term ‘hold’. With the share price near 1,351p as I write, that growing dividend is yielding a forward-looking 2.7% for 2020. I’m poised and ready to pounce! 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.

England select training squad to prepare for Wales in the Six Nations

first_img TAGS: Highlight Tom Wood (Northampton Saints)Tom Youngs (Leicester Tigers)Backs Brad Barritt (Saracens)Mike Brown (Harlequins)Luther Burrell (Northampton Saints)Danny Care (Harlequins)Danny Cipriani (Sale Sharks)Kyle Eastmond (Bath Rugby)Owen Farrell (Saracens)George Ford (Bath Rugby)Alex Goode (Saracens)Jonathan Joseph (Bath Rugby)Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby)Stephen Myler (Northampton Saints)Jack Nowell (Exeter Chiefs)Billy Twelvetrees (Gloucester Rugby)Anthony Watson (Bath Rugby)Richard Wigglesworth (Saracens)Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) SO THE selections that we expected arrived during a senior side and Saxons announcement, with England naming a senior training squad to face Wales in the opening game of the Six Nations that initially includes Danny Cipriani and Nick Easter.With Jonathan Joseph also selected, this is a nod to form. Some would suggest it is also a nod to the power of popular pressure – Sale DoR Steve Diamond’s recent assertion that: “If Danny doesn’t get picked and he goes then we’ll find somebody else,” could imply that Cipriani would leave England if Lancaster didn’t act – but it is worth noting that this is a squad only for the Wales game, and even then only a wider training squad.However, it is a lifeline, even if Cipriani is one of four fly-halves. Lancaster admitted that Stephen Myler had the edge on Cipriani, but that the Sharks stand-off had always been in the loop, having toured New Zealand with England in the summer and training with the squad in the autumn.As for Easter, Lancaster felt it was time to welcome the Harlequins veteran back. “Nick is slightly different,” Lancaster said. “There is a real need for specialist No 8s. Billy Vunipola was outstanding at the weekend but we need some specialist No 8s and Nick, to be fair, has been outstanding and deserves a chance to see if he can replicate that again at international level.”Taking stock: Nick Easter will be in a camp with Lancaster for the first timeWith focus on the midfield, there is still no sign of Manu Tuilagi recovering. Andy Farrell highlighted the opportunity presented to others – with Kyle Eastmond, Joseph, Brad Barritt, Luther Burrell, and Billy Twelvetrees in the mix and with Sam Burgess set to start in the centre for the England Saxons against the Irish Wolfhounds on 30 January – but was also cautious on the Leicester Tigers powerhouse’s health. He said: “He (Tuilagi) would have liked to have played in a few more Test matches than he has. But we want a fully fit Manu and his priority is to get 100% fit. But, in the meantime, it gives other people a chance.”Take your pick on which one of these is the more exciting story: Cipriani and three rivals; Easter’s return to the fold or the continued quandry in the centres. Because many will be happy to see Joseph reaping rewards for his Bath form. Oh yeah, and the second row is a wide open area. Graham Kitchener has forced his way into the second-row reckoning thanks to his recent performances for Leicester while the coaches were effusive with praise for Saracens‘ George Kruis. There is an opportunity to impress in the boiler house for several locks, while there are finally several options in the front row.Elsewhere, there is a chance for assorted Saxons to impress, with their squad also announced. All eyes will be on Burgess, but with Marland Yarde dropped down a level while England only pick three out-and-out wingers in their training squad for Wales, he will have a point to prove.Others have their chance to show what they have against the Wolfhounds, with Kieran Brookes and Rob Webber lining up for the Saxons and Christian Day called up off the back of Northampton’s impressive showings so far.England Senior training squad Forwards Dave Attwood (Bath Rugby)Calum Clark (Northampton Saints)Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers)Alex Corbisiero (Northampton Saints)Nick Easter (Harlequins)Dylan Hartley (Northampton Saints)James Haskell (Wasps)Graham Kitchener (Leicester Tigers)George Kruis (Saracens)Joe Marler (Harlequins)Geoff Parling (Leicester Tigers)Chris Robshaw (Harlequins, captain)Billy Vunipola (Saracens)Mako Vunipola (Saracens)David Wilson (Bath Rugby) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS MAn on the run: Cipriani has earned a recall to the England training squad Kieran Brookes (Newcastle Falcons)Tom Croft (Leicester Tigers)Christian Day (Northampton Saints)Luke Cowan-Dickie (Exeter Chiefs)Dave Ewers (Exeter Chiefs)Matt Garvey (Bath Rugby)Ross Harrison (Sale Sharks)Maro Itoje (Saracens)Matt Kvesic (Gloucester Rugby)Matt Mullan (Wasps)Henry Thomas (Bath Rugby)Thomas Waldrom (Exeter Chiefs)Alex Waller (Northampton Saints)Rob Webber (Bath Rugby)BacksChris Ashton (Saracens)Sam Burgess (Bath Rugby)Elliot Daly (Wasps)Ollie Devoto (Bath Rugby)Lee Dickson (Northampton Saints, captain)Chris Pennell (Worcester Warriors)Joe Simpson (Wasps)Henry Slade (Exeter Chiefs)Marland Yarde (Harlequins)Christian Wade (Wasps) England Saxons squadForwardslast_img read more

Toulon through to Challenge Cup final after nail-biting win over Stade Francais

first_imgSunday Apr 29, 2012 Toulon through to Challenge Cup final after nail-biting win over Stade Francais Jonny Wilkinson kicked a last minute drop goal to secure an Amlin Challenge Cup final spot for Toulon as they beat Stade Francais 32-29 in an enjoyable semi final on Friday night. They will face Biarritz in the final after they beat Brive 19-0 in the other semi.Toulon got off to an incredible start as Steffon Armitage scored down the left wing, but Stade Francais came back into the match through their young number ten Jules Plisson.The Parisian side then led the game for most of the half, and scored a try in the second period through former Wallaby Morgan Turinui, who had George Smith as his centre partner on the night.Wilkinson steered Toulon home though, picking up a personal tally of 27 points and kicking the decisive drop goal with time almost up and the scores tied at 29-29. The former England hero missed a few kicks on the night, attributing that to the conditions.“It was very tricky out there with the wind. It was disappointing as well because had I put a couple of the other kicks over then maybe we might found ourselves with a lead,” he said.“As it was they just kept getting back into the game, playing brilliantly and forced us to go right to the end. It could have gone either way. I missed a couple off the tee and I thought with the drop goal at the end that if I miss this I might not go back into the changing room afterwards. “I thought the guys deserved better than this after working so hard to get the penalties – I should have put a few more over. All you can do is keep fighting towards the end and keep trying to do the right thing. I was trying to think clearly about the process, of where I was on the field.“I was thinking about what I was trying to go and getting the right contact and visualising in my mind what needed to be done to try to make it more said and done deal. You try to line the physical thing with what you put in your head before hand and thankfully that went well.”Highlights and clips of all the European action, and Super Rugby, will be featured throughout the week.

JuuL House / NKS Architects

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510671/juul-house-nks-architects Clipboard photographs:  Kouji OkamotoPhotographs:  Kouji OkamotoStructure:RC-3FArchitect In Charge:Noriko Suehiro, Kaoru SuehiroCity:YukuhashiCountry:JapanMore SpecsLess SpecsText description provided by the architects. JUUL House, a two-generation residence designed by NKS Architects, sits adjacent to a river running through the suburbs of a small city in Fukuoka Prefecture. The client, a musician involved with music education in the local community, wanted a home that could also function as a small music hall. Because the client works in the cement business – a major regional industry – the architects used concrete as the primary construction material. View from the far bank of the riverGive us an overview of the project.The lot is a long, slightly irregular rectangle aligned north-to-south, with a river running along the south-east side. The river’s mouth is not far away and so it is quite wide at the point where the house stands. Although the lot is surrounded by houses on three sides, the view towards the river and rice fields on the far side is completely open.  The setting is rich in natural beauty, with the Chikuhou Mountains visible to the west. Save this picture!© Kouji OkamotoRecommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorThe character of the interior spaces differs on each floor. The first floor, which opens onto a garden that runs from north to south, includes a large entryway that also serves as a gallery and a living room that doubles as the music hall, as well as a dining room, kitchen, and bedroom used primarily by the younger generation. The distinctive curved ceiling is interspersed with skylights that bring soft light into the space. In contrast, the second floor, where the older generation lives, opens to the east and west overlooking the river and the rich natural scenery.  Compared to the first floor the scale of the spaces upstairs is much smaller and more enclosed, but because of the expansive views they do not feel oppressively closed-off. The cubicle-like rooms were designed as places to relax sitting on the floor.The two very different areas of the house are divided by curved concrete that forms the ceiling downstairs and the floor and walls upstairs. Painted white, these curved walls softly scatter the light from the skylights, and do the same for sound when concerts are held in the home.Exterior viewed from the entrance porch of the garageWhat was most important for you during the design process?Save this picture!© Kouji OkamotoOne central point was that the space functions not only as a home but also as a small cultural facility (both a music hall and gallery). Another point that I always think about is the need for the spatial design to logically mesh with the structural framework of the building. This time, I also explored the potential of concrete spaces.First floor galleryWhat challenges did you face in the project? How did you respond to them?As part of our goal of creating a structure that expresses the possibilities of concrete, we focused in particular on technical innovations to ensure a high-quality thermal and acoustic environment. Save this picture!Floor Plan & SectionIn terms of the thermal environment, we stabilized the interior temperature by completely enclosing the concrete – which functions as a heat storage body – with exterior wall insulation. On the east and west sides we added another layer of concrete on top of the insulation in order to unify the design. To keep the interior from overheating in summer, we installed awnings over the large windows and doors, used low-emissivity glass in the skylights, and created pathways for heat to escape. In order to ensure acoustic performance, primarily for classical music, we focused on making sure the convex surfaces of the concrete ceiling diffuse sound properly. To control reverberation time, we opened numerous holes in the surface of the concrete and inserted acoustic absorbent material. The type of acoustic environment needed varies depending on the size of the audience and the types of instruments, among other factors, and here it can be adjusted to a certain degree by opening or closing the sound-absorbing doors and curtains in the room. First floor living roomWhat did you learn from this project? What will you take from it to future projects?Save this picture!© Kouji OkamotoI was able to confirm the effectiveness of skylights for bringing in natural light, as well as of external wall insulation in concrete buildings. On the other hand, I realized that I need to think further about the balance between the quality and cost of architecture.  First floor galleryHow does this project fit into current architectural trends such as sustainability, social function, or technology?When I think about creating sustainable architecture, I focus on using materials in a way that allows their character to emerge as they age. Contemporary architecture tends towards the minimalistic, inorganic forms representative of standardized factory products. In this project, although I used concrete, which is an inorganic material, and modern construction techniques to create a new kind of space, I tried to incorporate a human warmth into it.Save this picture!© Kouji OkamotoI also thought about how a residence, while belonging to one individual, can also be open to the local community and serve as a cultural resource that is used long into the future. Perhaps it is only within the framework of such a local community that the long-term value of culture can be preserved in an era dominated by the short-sighted principles of the global economy.First floor dining roomWhat is the societal role of the architect?Architecture has the potential to become a cultural and social asset, and I think architects have a responsibility to stay conscious of that when they design buildings. Even residences can go beyond their role as the space for individual lives and serve as community assets. If you think about it, just a few generations ago homes in Japan were used as sites for the ceremonial gatherings that helped create communities. In this project the space not only enriches the life of the client, but through its function as a concert hall and gallery it becomes a center-point for enriching the entire community. Project gallerySee allShow lessDo New Buildings In London Have Shard Envy?Architecture NewsLight Matters: Mashrabiyas – Translating Tradition into Dynamic FacadesArticles Share Year:  Projects Area:  412 m² Area:  412 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project JuuL House / NKS ArchitectsSave this projectSaveJuuL House / NKS Architects Photographs ArchDaily 2012 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510671/juul-house-nks-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Yukuhashi, Japan Houses JuuL House / NKS Architects “COPY” Year:  2012 “COPY” Save this picture!© Kouji Okamoto+ 18 Share Architects: NKS Architects Area Area of this architecture project Japan CopyAbout this officeNKS ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYukuhashiHousesJapanPublished on May 30, 2014Cite: “JuuL House / NKS Architects” 30 May 2014.

This summer home located on a horse ranch, which has a variety of architectural restrictions, called for a single story design integrated with the grounds, complying with the mandatory use of clay roof tiles.Save this picture!© Fran Parente Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fran Parente With these requirements in mind, we started with an archetypal house that almost resembled a child’s drawing – walls and a pitched roof. Using simple lines, we did a sort of extrusion, creating a barn-like pavilion. We then doubled this volume, making slight changes in size, and we created a central garden that also serves an entryway.Save this picture!© Fran Parente We divided the components by placing a large family area in the most private pavilion. Each end of this volume holds bedrooms that become a small flat where a family with children could vacation.Save this picture!© Fran Parente The service areas are located in the back of the living and leisure area. If needed, the kitchen, a key element, can be opened to the living area and was designed as a mini-pavilion within the original volume, using black wood. The importance of the area is made clear and it is used as a featured element in organizing the space. We proposed a large room with ample glass doors which fully opens to an outdoor area, becoming a large veranda. To this end, we created a simple concrete portico to transition between the indoor and outdoor area and that is able to hide all of the enclosing glass doors at one end. A bookcase provides a subtle division between the living room-veranda and a TV and game room with a fireplace.Save this picture!© Fran Parente Wood paneling we designed especially for this project covers the walls and ceilings in the living area, contrasting with the graphite-colored texturized external plaster, while an L-shaped slate-lined swimming pool occupies a good portion of this common area.Save this picture!© Fran Parente We were especially careful with the structure of the design. Although it was simple, almost archetypal, we decided to design some metal roof trusses instead of using typical Brazilian wood trusses, making the structure lighter and showing how the typical structural forces in this type of architectural solution work. The lush tropical landscaping designed by Rodrigo Oliveira completes the space, creating a subtle connection between the public and private areas while also making for an interesting contrast with the pure geometry of the shapes proposed.Save this picture!© Fran Parente Project gallerySee allShow lessPoems of a Modern-Day ArchitectArchitecture BooksOrdinary Acknowledgement: Elisa SilvaEvent Share Fernando Forte, Lourenço Gimenes, Rodrigo Marcondes Ferraz  Manufacturers: Aris Climatização, Coldfer, Largrill, Marcenaria Ithalianas, Mary Pedras, Pedra cor, Portobello, Protecnica Revestimentos, Smart Pedras, Tecline ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942908/jordao-house-fgmf-arquitetos Clipboardlast_img read more

Greetings from Fred Goldstein

first_imgThis talk was presented on Nov. 18 to the Workers World Party National Conference.Greetings to the 2017 annual conference of Workers World Party.I want to especially greet all the new comrades, candidates and friends who have come to participate with the party in evaluating past struggles and planning future struggles against capitalism and to build the fight pushing back exploitation and oppression of all types. We are here to chart a path to eventual socialist revolution. There will be ample time to discuss and thrash out the way to go forward.Trump and his administration are hell-bent on bringing more suffering to the masses on every front and further enriching the already obscenely wealthy ruling class. They are fanning the flames of white supremacy, ravaging health care, workers’ rights, LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, carrying out witch hunts against undocumented workers, unleashing the police and fascist forces on oppressed communities, enabling the polluters to destroy the environment, and the list goes on.They are also unleashing the military, escalating drone attacks, and Trump threatens nuclear war against the DPRK [the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] almost weekly. Of course, Trump is an authoritarian reactionary, racist bigot, but the rise of Trump can be laid directly at the feet of the previous administrations. Both imperialist parties, the Democratic and the Republican parties, aided and assisted in the breakup of the unions and played key roles in the deteriorating conditions for the masses.I want to call attention to the fact that this conference coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.  It is important for new comrades and friends to know that our party traces its roots back to that revolution. The revolution was carried out by the Bolsheviks under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin. This revolution sent tremors of fear through the propertied classes of the world and especially the ruling classes in the imperialist countries, for it was the first time that an enslaved class, an exploited class, a downtrodden class seized and held state power.It took the property of the bankers, the capitalists and the landlords and proceeded to construct a planned economy against all odds. The revolution went through many trials and tribulations, advances and setbacks until it was finally overcome 74 years later.It is crucial to study the history of this revolution for its relevance to the struggle today. But what I want to stress here is that the Russian revolution was the opening shot, the very first stage, in the world historic transition from capitalism to socialism and communism.It took place during World War I, the first major breakdown of the world imperialist system. There were revolutions and uprisings at the end of the war involving millions all throughout Europe and in the colonies. But under these conditions, it was only the Bolsheviks, led by Lenin, who were prepared to take advantage of these events and overthrow the hated czarist and capitalist regime.This revolution was forced to survive alone for decades in a world dominated by hostile imperialist powers. But the fact that the counterrevolution eventually prevailed in the USSR in no way negates the historical significance of this opening stage of the world socialist revolution.In looking back, we want to reiterate that the socialist revolution in the USSR and the succeeding revolutions in Korea, Vietnam and China all arose out of the breakdown of the world imperialist system as well.Fast forward to the present. …Beginning in 2007, with the world financial and economic crisis, imperialism entered into a new stage, a stage of capitalism at a dead end. The capitalist system as a whole could no longer overcome its crisis of overproduction and has condemned more and more workers to unemployment, underemployment and poverty. This dead-end capitalism is also low-wage capitalism.  The bosses have created a global race to the bottom for the workers while they rake in huge profits.This new phase of imperialism will inevitably open up revolutionary opportunities for the working class and oppressed. And just like in 1917, we must build the party in the spirit of Lenin, which is ideologically, strategically, organizationally and tactically prepared to take advantage of the revolutionary opportunities that are sure to come.Let us be that party, like Lenin’s party, the party that its founder Sam Marcy sought to build, that will be ready for the coming crisis of world imperialism and U.S. capitalism, that is prepared to lead our class to victory.Build Workers World Party.Down with capitalism and imperialism.Long live socialism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
