first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Christopher Ruane | Thursday, 26th November, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 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. Investor Warren Buffett has been an inspiration to legions of investors. His strong investment performance is one reason. But another secret to Buffett’s enduring appeal is the way in which he lays out his investing philosophy clearly for other investors to understand. Yet Buffett owes a lot of his own investing wisdom to his right hand man at Berkshire Hathaway, Charlie Munger.As Buffett told an interviewer: “Charlie, he’s given me a lot of good advice over time.”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…With that in mind, here are three key principles of Charlie Munger’s investment philosophy. They’re easy to understand and I think they’re worth applying in my own stock market investing.Only invest in great companies – not good onesCharlie Munger points out that it’s easy to diversify a portfolio, or to index investments so that they match the broad market. That will provide returns in line with the market, which is already better than many investors achieve. But he says there’s no point to that. Instead, he cautions people to invest only when they know that something is better than average. That’s reflected in the market-beating returns achieved over decades by Berkshire Hathaway.If that means only making a few investments over several years, that’s fine by Munger. For him, the reward will be greater when waiting for a few great investment choices he can approach with confidence, rather than plumping for more regular investments that promise good-but-not-great returns.Charlie Munger believes inactivity can be lucrativeThe lure of the stock market ticker means a lot of investors trade frequently, moving in and out of shares often. But trying to time the market can be fraught with the risk of misjudgement. Munger suggests that usually the best thing anyone can do as an investor is to sit still and wait.That makes sense to me. As Munger believes in choosing only a few very-high-quality investments and holding them for a long time, there’s no reason to keep ducking and diving in the stock market. His is a buy-and-hold investment philosophy that requires little monitoring usually. If a share does well enough over the long run, buying it a little cheaper by picking the lowest entry point is less important. High-quality shares reward their owners in spades over the years. This reduces the temptation to buy them only when they fall to low prices. In the end, Munger is confident quality will out.Successful investors tend to read a lotHe’s also known as a voracious reader. In fact, he’s been quoted as saying that all of the smart people he has ever known have been heavy readers. As investors, reading can help inform us about specific investment companies. But it also helps us get a better understanding of the trends and frameworks that affect everything from consumer demand to crowd mentality.Sometimes I wonder why I didn’t catch a successful investing trend when it was still in its infancy. Charlie Munger knows. Anything from cloud computing to the last property crash were hiding in plain sight, in my opinion. But it was necessary to read widely to have the necessary knowledge to fit the pieces together. 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.

Hate speech is certainly not a crime in the United States of America, and the United Nations Organization and its Articles 4a and b can not “require” either the United States of America or the Empire of Japan to make it one. Rector Washington, DC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Pittsburgh, PA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit a Job Listing Comments (1) Rector Martinsville, VA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME [Anglican Communion News Service] Japanese Anglicans have strongly condemned racism in the country and vowed “to eradicate hate crime and hate speech and strive to establish a true multiracial and mutlicultural society.”In a statement issued after their 61st synod, representatives of Nippon Sei Ko Kai (The Anglican/Episcopal Church in Japan) Synod pulled no punches as they criticized a lack of government legislation against hate crimes and hate speech.“Hate speech is now rampant in Japan,” it said. “The targets range from ethnic Koreans to various social minorities such as other Asians, foreigners in general, [people considered to be from lower castes], Okinawans, atomic bomb survivors, Ainu people, and sexual minorities.“Negating and ignoring the very existence of victims, hate speech is a serious crime that physically and mentally scars people in a profound way.”The statement was signed by representatives of the houses of bishops, clergy and laity as well as members of the Committee for Peace and Justice and the Youth Committee.It pointed out that Japan is one of only five countries that have limited their support for an international convention on eliminating racial discrimination. It also highlighted groups such as Zaitokukai (translated as Citizens against the Special Privileges of Korean Residents) that have held “dreadfully racist public demonstrations”.The bold statement made the Synod’s feelings quite clear: “In this globalizing modern world, a multiracial and multicultural society is not just an inevitable consequence, but is an ideal that must be actively worked towards. The racist movements are totally against our goal and should never be tolerated as “freedom of expression”.“[With] the merciful Lord going before us, (Psalm 59:10), we vow to eradicate hate crime and hate speech and will strive to establish a true multiracial and multicultural society.”Read the full declaration below:The 61st General Synod of the Nippon Sei Ko Kai, Resolution 25Declaration of Support for the Eradication of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech and the Creation of a True Multiracial and Multicultural Society by the NSKK (Nippon Sei Ko Kai, the Anglican/Episcopal Church in Japan)Submitters:Diocese of OsakaHouse of Bishops: The Rt.

In December 2009 they raided Kyoto Chosen Shokyu Gakko (Korean elementary school) while children were still in class, and severely traumatized not only children but also school officials, and the local community. This triggered a broad recognition of the term “hate speech” in the Japanese society.The historically accurate view of Japanese invasions and their subsequent military reign in Asia based upon colonialism, imperialism and militarism after the Meiji Restoration has not been properly atoned for. Furthermore, the former colonized peoples’ persecution, forced assimilation and subjugation by ethnocentric policies have not been fully acknowledged. In particular Korean people and their descendants have borne the brunt of this history. This is arguably the root of the current problems surrounding ethnic Koreans in Japan.The NSKK has promoted a convivial society through the restoration of St. Gabriel Church in the Diocese of Osaka and support of the NSKK Ikuno Center (a community center located in an ethnic Korean area), and through mutual exchanges and cooperation with the Anglican Church of Korea. In the meantime, “Anti-Korean sentiment” has become conspicuous, particularly on Internet blogs and demonstrations held in predominantly ethnically Korean communities. A rightward trend in Japanese politics, in evidence of the aforesaid lack of remorse for Japan’s military colonization, has become more and more prevalent.As hate speech is now rampant in Japan, the targets range from ethnic Koreans to various social minorities such as other Asians, foreigners in general, “Burakumin (*see below)” outcasts, Okinawans, atomic bomb survivors, Ainu people, and sexual minorities. Negating and ignoring the very existence of victims, hate speech is a serious crime that physically and mentally scars people in a profound way.In November 2013, the Kyoto District Court made a landmark ruling that the December 2009 school attack was considered a deliberately discriminatory action. In regard to hate speech in Japan, the United Nations formally urged the Japanese government to take measures against it on February 2014. Although Japan has been a member of International Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD), Japan is one of only five countries that have made reservations on Article 4(a) and (b) condemning hate crime and hate speech, and the United Nations strongly requires the member states to withdraw these reservations. While western countries extensively regulate hate crime and hate speech to protect racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities based on remorse over their own historically documented racial atrocities (typified by the Holocaust), Japan still has almost no legislation for regulating hate crimes and hate speech.The bible records the outcries of people threatened by hatred and accusations.Save me from the contempt from those trample on me. My soul is in the midst of lions; I lie down amid fiery beasts – the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords. – Psalm 57:4-5.See what they spew from their mouths – the words are sharp as swords. Who can bear such words from their lips? – Psalm 59:7.The Psalms tell us that the Lord is full of compassion and mercy for those who are threatened, and goes in front of them (Psalm 59:10). The Lord once ordered the Israelites not to persecute foreigners (Deuteronomy 24:19) and to protect their life and rights (Leviticus 19:10, Deuteronomy 10:18). And the Lord has promised that the day as “they shall all sit under their own vines and under their own fig trees, and no one shall make them afraid (Micah 4:4.)” will come, and want us to live towards that day.In this globalizing modern world, a multiracial and multicultural society is not just an inevitable consequence but is an ideal that must be actively worked towards. The racist movements are totally against our goal and should never be tolerated as “freedom of expression”. Following the merciful Lord going in front, (Psalm 59:10), we vow to eradicate hate crime and hate speech and will strive to establish a true multiracial and multicultural society.(*Burakumin are ethnically Japanese, but are members of caste restricted to certain areas of residence, descent and occupations , in particular abattoirs, meat processing, garbage collecting, or leather working. Considered unclean, burakumin for centuries have suffered continuously from segregation and degradation as outcasts. Their official numbers vary, but most estimates put their population at around two million.)Article 4(a) and (b) of ICERD(a) Shall declare an offence punishable by law all dissemination of ideas based on racial superiority or hatred, incitement to racial discrimination, as well as all acts of violence or incitement to such acts against any race or group of persons of another colour or ethnic origin, and also the provision of any assistance to racist activities, including the financing thereof;(b) Shall declare illegal and prohibit organizations, and also organized and all other propaganda activities, which promote and incite racial discrimination, and shall recognize participation in such organizations or activities as an offence punishable by law;All churches and dioceses of the NSKK have supported and prayed for the NSKK Ikuno Center which was established in 1992 for the purpose of supporting a local community where non-Japanese residents (mostly, but not exclusively, ethnic Koreans) and Japanese residents could live harmoniously together. The NSKK had declared in 2012 its dedication to “create a communion in which we walk together with each individual person, respect the dignity of individual life and positively encounter people, without simply grouping them as “aged”, “youth”, “female”, “male”, “children”, “disabled”, “foreigners””. Recent activities of Zaitokukai and its sympathizers, which clearly violate human rights, are totally against this declaration of the NSKK, and we hereby steadfastly declare our position with this resolution.

The site occupies a 1,400m2 corner plot in a street of detached villasin large gardens. The southern side is defined by a small creek and three mature, protected oak trees located on the neighbouring plot, casting a very particular atmosphere onto the property.Save this picture!© Jürgen HammerschmiedThe scheme aims at accommodating and negotiating the differing and ever changing needs of an extended family. From the one side the complex requirements of the brief with four different programmes; two independent family units, a studio for a performing artist and a guests’ unit and from the other, the constraints given by the local planning department on massing and footprint defined the volume and the outline of the building. Save this picture!section 03The building is an urban villa with an austere three storey presence to the street while the rear of the building is a variously negotiated two storey volume extending towards the garden. The topography of the garden was recast through a series of platforms organising and catering for the various clients’ requirements for outdoor living. Materially, these specificities translated into a terraced black concrete base and a two storey volume upon it, envel-oped with fixed and movable white translucent Teflon panels. The fabric cladding was conceived as a reference to the material quality and texture of the lost Bohemian tradition of linens and domesticity, allowing for the powerful presence of the oak trees to enter the interior in the form of a playful game of shadows on the large canvases. Save this picture!section 01The entry to the building from the street is via an alcove, providing security and semi-privacy. This niche leads to a generous, skylight staircase which becomes the gallery of the villa and the core of each home around which all rooms are arranged. In response to the brief, two generous living areas of different sizes and acoustic qualities open to-wards the garden and are designed to cater for music events and social gatherings of various scales. The ‘garden’ apartment relates to and has levelled access to a clearly defined paved patio with an oak tree, a reflective pool and an outdoor fireplace. The ‘upper’ apartment enjoys views towards the Vienna Forest beyond the upper garden and orchard to which it has direct, private access. All private areas have a relaxed definition of the use of rooms which gave a flexible character to the building’s interior.The environmental and energy concept was carefully developed from the outset along with the building design, thus the building meets the highest building performance and energy standards despite its large glazed surfaces and its translucent enclosure. On the one hand, particular attention was paid to strategically use consciously sourced or recycled materials. On the other, the energy concept was devised through careful application of high performance materials and smart technologies, such as glazing systems, adequate thermal insulation in com-bination with solid core thermal mass and following bioclimatic principals such as self shading. Save this picture!© Jürgen HammerschmiedThis stands in combi-nation with an efficient heating and cooling system based on a geothermic heat pump with heating coils integrated in the structural concrete elements of the building and an under floor heating system. With the provision for photovoltaic cells on the flat roof surface, the building will be further upgraded to run entirely as self-autonomous energetically and with the possibility to produce an energy surplus.Project gallerySee allShow lessSkanska: Bridging Prague International Design CompetitionArticlesChangzhou Culture Center / gmp ArchitektenArticles Share CopyHouses•Vienna, Austria 2011 Area:  650 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Jürgen Hammerschmied+ 22 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/222932/villa-s-buerger-katsota-architects Clipboard “COPY” Austrialast_img read more

Three common area courtyards puncture the perforated façade. Save this picture!Courtesy of Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma ArchitectsSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!Courtesy of Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma ArchitectsAcross the street is a complimentary building which forms a pedestrian alley, a new pedestrian street, together with existing CWRU Residence buildings, which have new commercial programs added at their base. The Euclid building is transparent and perforated, with four restaurants which connect the alley to the main street. The functions of the alley focus on food and beverage. This building on the north side of Euclid has student rental apartments, structured in a similar way to the ones across the street, but more compact. Several communal outdoor courts perforate the façade. At the end of the alley a gateway under the buildings connects to entry of CIA.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!Courtesy of Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma ArchitectsThe commercial bases on both sides of the street are transparent, perforated and light.

Turning the corner at Ford Ave is a large urban gesture of a gateway, supported by a three story column, as a counterpoint to MOCA. This section of the building contains Corner Alley Bowling, with market rate apartments above. The other half of the building has restaurants, a bank along Euclid Ave, and student residences for CIA above.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessYAS House / Estudio ArzubialdeSelected ProjectsOMA Reveals Plans to Redevelop Washington DC’s RFK Stadium CampusArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44106, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Photo by Ariana WilliamsOne event highlighted within the expanded wallpaper portion of the display was the walkout staged in 1971 by four football players.

Photo by Ariana WilliamsThe Special Collections team at the library was in charge of this initiative, which is headed by director Ann Hodges.“The aim for the new display was that we wanted to support the university’s efforts towards diversity and inclusion,” Hodges said. The events represented on the timeline highlight school-related events such as the first black nursing students, the black enrollment percentages at TCU and the approval of the National Panhellenic Council organizations on TCU’s campus.Various archives were used by the Special Collections team to create the exhibit.Mary Saffell, a senior archivist with the Special Collections team, said this was a necessary addition to the library because people have been curious about when and how TCU became integrated.“We spent several years gathering the information,” Saffell said. “We thought that a good way to present the information was through the display.” The wall did run into an issue, however, when the timeline display incorrectly cited the first year of Barack Obama’s presidency as 2009.A student, Victoria Lyons, quickly took to Twitter and highlighted the mishap.
