Anglo-German travel firm TUI (LSE:TUI) has endured a dire year. And with the pandemic raging on, the light at the end of the tunnel is dim.The TUI share price now sits around £4, which means it has tumbled over 57% in a year. Will the vaccine bring it the respite it desperately desires? 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…TUI share price tumblesIn its last financial year ending 30 September, TUI accrued a £2.8bn (€3.2bn) pre-tax loss. To strengthen its chances of surviving the crisis, the FTSE 250 firm launched a rights issue, raising £492m (€545m). TUI will use £283m (€314m) of this to reduce its debt. It hopes the rest will be enough to see it through the ongoing lockdown and travel restrictions. The tour operator expects the restrictions will continue until this summer. If this timeframe is extended, then I imagine more help will be necessary.This latest fundraise is part of a massive financing package worth £1.6bn (€1.8bn) that TUI has in place with a group of banks, major shareholders, and the German government. While shareholders have agreed to this rights issue, unfortunately the TUI share price has tumbled over 20% in response. I think it’s great the company is focused on reducing its debt, but time will tell if that’s going to be enough.If the vaccine rollout goes well and we lift restrictions by summer, then I think this company will see a surge in bookings. This means its recovery can begin. But that won’t be a quick sprint back to profitability. The company has accrued a massive amount of debt in simply surviving thus far. Estimates show it’s burning cash at a rate of £0.45bn (€0.5bn) per month, which is going to take a long time to pay back.Dark timesWith pandemic recovery still up in the air, investing in TUI shares undoubtedly carries risk. Along with its considerable debt, the company is hampered by the ongoing cost of maintaining its fleet of aircraft, cruise ships, and over 400 hotels. There’s no dividend to entice shareholders, and I doubt it will be reinstated for at least two years.British Airways owner and FTSE 100 constituent International Consolidated Airlines Group, (IAG) is another travel company with struggles ahead. These also includes mounting debt. We’re now in the third official British lockdown, which has thrown a spanner in the works of IAG’s vaccine-inspired share price recovery.IAG has appointed a new company director, Javier Ferran, to replace Antonio Vazquez, who has retired. Ferran will be on a mission to steer the company back into profitable territory. But he’s got an immense job on his hands. The IAG share price is down over 62% in a year. I’m not tempted to invest in either of these travel stocks until the world has a better handle on the Covid-19 crisis.

Tech stocks: I’m buying the dip

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA Tech stocks have experienced a huge sell-off recently. With vaccines being rolled out rapidly, investors have offloaded tech holdings and turned their attention to reopening stocks.Personally, I’ve been taking advantage of the share price weakness in the tech sector. I’ve added to some of my favourite holdings. I’ve also bought some new tech stocks. I’m not entirely convinced the worst is over for the technology sector.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…In the short term, I wouldn’t be surprised to see another leg down for tech as the global economy opens up. However, given that we’re in the midst of a technology revolution, I think plenty of tech stocks are likely to do well in the long run, driven by dominant digital trends.Online shopping is just getting startedOne area of the technology sector I’m particularly bullish on is e-commerce. Online shopping sales have risen significantly over the last decade. However, in the years and decades ahead, they’re likely to climb much higher. By 2027, the global online shopping market is expected to be worth around $10trn, up from around $4trn in 2020.Escalating usage of smartphones and increasing disposable income levels are likely to be key growth drivers. Advances in augmented reality (AR) technology could also be a growth driver. AR can offer customers virtual changing rooms. Given the huge growth potential of this industry, I recently added to my Amazon holding. It’s one of the biggest online retailers globally. I also grabbed some shares in social media company Pinterest. I believe it has the potential to be a big player in e-commerce after its recent deal with Shopify. Both shares could fall further in the short term. However, I’m optimistic about their long-term prospects.The world is shifting away from cashDigital payments is another area of technology I’m excited about. This is obviously closely linked to e-commerce. The more we buy online, the more digital payments take place. According to analysts at Accenture, we’ll see 2.7trn transactions move from cash to cards and e-payments by 2030.One company I like a lot in this space is PayPal. It’s a dominant player in the financial technology space with a very powerful brand. Last year, it was one of the most downloaded financial apps across Europe. I took the opportunity to buy some more shares recently after its share price was hammered in the tech sell-off, despite the fact it still sports quite a high valuation (which adds risk).Source: SiftedTech stocks I’m watchingThere are plenty of other tech stocks I’m watching closely after the recent sell-off. Many aren’t quite in my ‘buy zone’ yet however.Some stocks I’d like to own include vacation company Airbnb, software giant Adobe, semiconductor powerhouse ASML, and artificial intelligence chip specialist Nvidia. All of these companies appear well-placed to benefit from the tech revolution. If their share prices come down further, I may pull the trigger and buy them for my portfolio.As I said earlier, we could see further volatility in the technology sector in the short term. Valuations across the tech sector are still very high. If bond yields continue to rise, tech stocks may take another hit.However, the long-term growth story is still very much in play, in my view. That’s why I’m buying tech stocks now.

The underlying design intent was toexplore the notion of “prospect and refuge” within a contemporary family house and then to apply the idea to a specific site near Bronte Beach.Save this picture!Courtesy of MHNDUThe “prospect” were the constantly changing beach and coast views to the south of the site. The “refuge” was the other contrasting character where we created introspective spaces that provide a sense of sanctuary and enclosure.Save this picture!Courtesy of MHNDUThese two driving desires for the house were accommodated through devising two sculpted concrete forms responding to their particular use and orientation. The forms are rounded at the edges similar to tubes which are independent of each other enabling the upper tube to twist towards the view while the lower tube orientates to the street.Save this picture!Courtesy of MHNDUThe upper tube containing the living spaces is open ended and carved out which allows the northern winter sun to penetrate deeply into the space while allowing an unimpeded outlook to the southern view. The form also provides efficient passive ventilation drawing the prevailing nor’ east breeze through the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of MHNDUOn the two lower levels the character of the spaces changes to places of privacy and refuge. The middle tube houses the bedrooms, each with a different aspect and outlook. The lower level has a cave like atmosphere with the room formed by a cut bedrock wall and a dark stone floor connecting the internal and external spaces. The pool provides a water element spanning between the rock wall and the garden.Save this picture!Courtesy of MHNDUThe house boldly sits as a modern insertion into the typically poor building stock of its surrounding environment. The context is of varying building styles, scales and materials so the house creates a deliberate contrast in form and colour. The homogenous appearance of the house allows the forms to be emphasised by sun and shadow with the play of light continually shifting and moving with the path of the sun.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow less’Wallcano’: Collider Activity Center Competition Entry / Zohar ArchitectsUnbuilt ProjectGold Coast International Design CompetitionEvent Share Area:  332 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeMHN Design UnionOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSydneyAustraliaPublished on March 24, 2013Cite: “Hewlett Street House / MHN Design Union” 24 Mar 2013.

All social spaces on the ground floor were unified to make them more flexible and adapted to different scales of occupation; in turn, a number of elements designate and equip the interior to provide a clear distinction between the different areas. Upstairs only a suite and workspace overlooking the double height make up the intimate space of a couple without children. In the future, the house will extend forward with the bedrooms defining a courtyard that will also serve as entrance, protecting the interiors from the street and opening the rooms to the north.Save this picture!© Andrés NegroniThe spatial and material continuity is the resource used to achieve a large and expansive environment in a few square meters; transparency, visual connection and color repetition define the unit of the building. Furthermore the variation in height and ceiling material, the surface finishes and the position of the equipment generate the functional differentiation for each environment.Save this picture!© Andrés NegroniA simple structure of thin metal columns support a more complex exposed slab, which through beams, brackets and cantilevers takes different heights to give an optimal scale for each environment. Upstairs, a light wood-frame roof is supported by exposed concrete beams, so the structural system is shown explicitly and becomes the constructive language.

Jorge Risquet: Cuban revolutionary leader, ¡presente!

first_imgJorge Risquet Valdés-Saldaña, a leading figure in the formation of the Communist Party of Cuba and vital to numerous heroic efforts on the African continent, passed away on Sept. 28 at the age of 85.Risquet was born on May 6, 1930, and joined the revolutionary youth movement in 1943. He was Cuba’s representative and head for Latin America in the World Federation of Democratic Youth and carried out an internationalist mission in Guatemala in 1954.During the United States-supported Fulgencio Batista dictatorship in Cuba, he was kidnapped, tortured and incarcerated. He joined the Revolutionary Army in 1958 in the Second Frank País Eastern Front.Jorge Risquet Valdés-Saldaña, with beard, behind Nelson Mandela.After the triumph of the Revolution, he held the positions of head of the Political Department and head of operations by the Army in the former Oriente province, Organization Secretary of the Provincial Committee of the United Party of the Socialist Revolution of Cuba in that province, head of the “Patricio Lumumba” Internationalist Battalion in Congo-Brazzaville, Minister of Labor, and head of the Cuban Civil Internationalist Mission in the People’s Republic of Angola between 1975 and 1979.From the earliest days of its Revolution, Cuba expressed concrete solidarity with the African Liberation Movement. Racism was outlawed in Cuba, and its internationalist outlook permeated the foreign policy of the state.In October 1960, when then-Premier Fidel Castro Ruz visited the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the revolutionary leader set up residence at the Theresa Hotel in Harlem. Castro met with Malcolm X, a leading figure in the Nation of Islam, along with enjoying a banquet with African-American workers at the famous hotel.After the imperialists undermined the national independence struggle in the former Belgian Congo, Che Guevara, in an eloquent speech before the U.N., denounced the assassination of Patrice Lumumba, founder of the Congolese National Movement, and placed the guilt for this crime squarely on imperialism. In 1965 Guevara led a delegation of Cuban internationalists to Congo in an attempt to reverse the course of the counterrevolution.Cuban role in liberation of Southern AfricaEven though the Congo campaign was not successful in defeating the counterrevolution in that mineral-rich country, a decade later the Cuban government responded to a request by Agostino Neto, leader of the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), to assist the independence movement there in defeating an invasion by South Africa and the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, which tried to install a puppet regime in the Angolan capital of Luanda. Between November 1975 and early 1976, some 55,000 Cuban internationalist troops were deployed to help the MPLA’s military wing defeat the South African intervention and consolidate Angola’s national independence.Cuban military units remained in Angola for 16 years, fighting alongside the MPLA as well as the South West Africa People’s Organization (SWAPO), the People’s Liberation Army of Namibia and the armed wing of the African National Congress, Umkhonto we Sizwe.The U.S. and its allies in Pretoria armed, funded and provided diplomatic cover for two Angolan political figures — Jonas Savimbi, of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), and Holden Roberto, of the National Liberation Front of Angola (FNLA), which was based in Zaire, the new name given Congo after the triumph of the counterrevolution. UNITA proved to be the more formidable foe, since it was given direct assistance by the CIA and apartheid South African forces then operating in South West Africa (Namibia) prior to its independence in 1990.The struggle in Angola reached its climax in 1987-88 with battles centered at Cuito Cuanavale, where the South African forces were routed and defeated. These battles would convince the racist regime in Pretoria and its backers in the Reagan and H.W. Bush administrations that a military defeat of the Southern African liberation movements was impossible.A ceasefire was declared in late 1988, and firm negotiations were undertaken between the MPLA government in Angola and the apartheid regime. The U.S. and Pretoria did not want the Cuban government involved in the talks about the withdrawal of South African forces from southern Angola and the independence process in Namibia.Nonetheless, due to the overwhelming support of the Organization of African Unity, now the African Union, and progressive forces internationally, the Cubans were not only allowed into the talks but played a prominent role. The central role of Jorge Risquet enhanced his international prominence, illustrating the significance of Cuba in the African revolutionary process.Risquet led the Cuban delegation in the talks, which resulted in the withdrawal of the apartheid army from southern Angola and the liberation of neighboring Namibia after a century of settler-colonial occupation. Internationally supervised elections in Namibia in late 1989 led to the declaration of independence from apartheid on March 21, 1990, under the leadership of President Sam Nujoma of SWAPO, which won overwhelmingly.The independence of Namibia and the ongoing mass and armed struggles in South Africa led by the ANC forced the removal of P.W. Botha as president of the apartheid regime and his replacement, F.W. DeKlerk. The new regime began to indicate that it was willing to negotiate an end to the political crisis in South Africa.Beginning on Feb. 2, 1990, the ANC, the South African Communist Party and other previously banned organizations were allowed to function openly. Nine days later, Nelson Mandela was released after more than 27 years of imprisonment in the dungeons of the racist apartheid system.Four years later the ANC won a solid electoral majority and took power in South Africa, sweeping out the dreaded system of apartheid. In a matter of less than two decades between 1975 and 1994, the system of white minority political rule in Southern Africa was soundly defeated with the profound assistance of revolutionary Cuba.Risquet honored Kwame NkrumahDuring a keynote address in September 2012 in Ghana honoring the 40th anniversary of the death of Kwame Nkrumah, Risquet outlined Cuba’s role in the African Revolution from the 1960s to the present period.He stressed the ancestral ties between the people of Cuba and the African continent based on the Atlantic Slave Trade. He also paid tribute to the role Kwame Nkrumah, leader of the independence movement in Ghana and its first prime minister and president, for his role in the creation of the Organization in Solidarity with the Peoples of Africa, Asia and Latin America (OSPAAL), formed in 1966 at the Tri-Continental Congress in Havana.“This was the understanding with which Cuban fighters came to ancestral Africa to fight side by side with the people against colonialism and the oppressive apartheid regime,” said Risquet. “For 26 years, 381,000 Cuban soldiers and officers fought alongside African populations — between April 24, 1965, when Ernesto Che Guevara and his men crossed Lake Tanganyika, and May 25, 1991, when the remaining 500 Cuban fighters returned home triumphant.”He went on to point out, “Among these internationalists were three of the Five Anti-Terrorist Heroes currently held in the imperialists’ prison [now released]. Twenty-four hundred Cuban internationalist fighters lost their lives on African soil. Today we no more send soldiers. Now, we send doctors, teachers, builders, specialists in various fields.”After his death, tributes to Risquet were delivered by the ANC of South Africa, the MPLA of Angola and other revolutionary parties and organizations throughout the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
