Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! To those who don’t pay much attention to the FTSE 100, it might seem that when Brexit developments are positive, the market rallies, and when sentiment is negative, the market falls.This is true at a high level, but there is a lot more to see when you look closer. At Motley Fool, we aim to understand all the nuances of the correlations between Brexit and the stock market, to ensure that our investments react in the way we want them to. 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…To that end, consider these three factors.Interest rates (correlation: negative)If we go back to 2016, the Bank of England cut interest rates from 0.5% to 0.25% in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum. The primary reason was to limit the impact that the Leave result might have on the economy. In theory, interest rate cuts make saving less attractive for investors and consumers alike, and thus encourages them to spend or invest. The FTSE 100 jumped after the interest rate cut, indicating a negative correlation to the progress of Brexit. If we see trade negotiations between the EU and UK going well throughout this year, then we could see the Bank raise interest rates. In the immediate aftermath, we would likely see the FTSE 100 fall.Currency (correlation: negative)The performance of the British pound (GBP) since the referendum has been well publicised by the media. The pound fell 10% in a single day against the US dollar in June 2016, and the volatility has remained high. There is a correlation between the currency and the FTSE 100, largely as a result of the many exporters within the index.When the value of the pound falls, exporters can take advantage by getting more when they repatriate foreign earnings back into the UK. The extent of the advantage for any one company depends on the percentage of that company’s earnings that come from abroad, but certainly the FTSE 100 index as a whole rallies when the pound weakens, giving a negative correlation.Domestic demand (correlation: positive)In economics, domestic demand refers to the degree that normal people like you and me feel positive about our current situation. The theory is that if we feel good about the economic state of the UK, we will be more likely to go out and spend money on non-essentials, take out loans, or maybe take out a mortgage. You might not think it, but domestic demand is a key factor for the positive correlation between the FTSE 100 and Brexit. Brexit concerns have dampened domestic demand, which has in turn hampered FTSE 100 gains (yes the market is up, but compare its gains against the US stock market).So going forward, should trade talk be positive by both sides, domestic demand will likely improve, providing a boost to the FTSE 100 index.

This house situated in Porto Feliz was designed for a family to spend their weekends outside the city of São Paulo.Firstly we worked with the natural topography of the land with a longitudinal stone wall of 3 meter, which worked as a topography landmark and divided the plot into two plain garden levels. The upper level, near the road, holds the entrance while the lowest level, overlooking the lake, hosts the leisure part of the house.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiOur goal with this implementation was to create a single story house when viewed from the road, but as the extension of the house accompanied the stone wall a piloti space would be formed on the lower level.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe piloti space formed holds verandas and all of the social area, outlined by sliding glass frames. On the superior level besides the accesses and service areas that are facing the road, are the family’s bedrooms and guest bedrooms overlooking the lake. The leisure area such as the children’s playroom, home cinema, sauna and spa meet within the stone wall, below the entrance level, thus diminishing the visual impact of the constructed house. The pool connects these embedded spaces with the gardens.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiA shelter/ pergola in square laminated wooden modules connect the volumes of the upper level, creating in these spaces a garage, hall access and an interior garden while providing eaves for the construction.Save this picture!Floor PlanA corten steel gardener practically shields the entire upper deck, providing more privacy to the bedrooms as well as increasing the shading of the lower level.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiProject gallerySee allShow lessTiny-House Villages: Safe Havens for the HomelessMiscCall for Submissions: Archonic Magazine #2 “Disassemble”Architecture News Share Year:  ArchDaily 2013 CopyHouses•Porto Feliz, Brazil CopyAbout this officeJacobsen ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPorto FelizHousesBrazilPublished on January 23, 2015Cite: “SW House / Jacobsen Arquitetura” 23 Jan 2015.

This beach house is located in the Atlantic coast of Argentina, 10 kilometers away from Pinamar, and 400 meters away from the beach, where the sound of the sea is constant. One of the main premises was to respect the coniferous forest, along with the “L” shape facing north. It is developed in one-story with the open possibility to build a new floor on top (one of the patios sets the space for the potential stairs). This “L” configuration allows to separate the public area from the private, articulating these spaces through three patios which capture light. The house is introverted towards its front façade, providing intimacy as well as a sense of mystery to the passersby. A compact “box”, where the attention is stolen by the pedestrian ramp, which finishes in the residence’s entrance patio.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralContextThe interior/exterior relationship is fluid, the residence lives the landscape in a direct way, since it is surrounded by the existent vegetation. Facing north the openings are from floor to ceiling, and it matches with most of the view towards the forest. The lot is uneven as it rises from front to back. The house joins into this movement: the public nave, 3 meters high, is positioned by taking the sides of the lot, in the front, and is settled at +0.5 meters. The private nave, respecting the existent soil, sets at +0.9 meters.Save this picture!PlanMaterialsThe constitution of the residence is based on noble materials: masonry, independent concrete structure and wood. In the public area – living room, dining room and kitchen – the exposed concrete slab is the main character principally because local wood has been used for the formwork, leaving its print in the ceiling. The 3 meters pivotal main door, covered in “petiribí” (cordia trichotoma) finish this space warmly. There is a clear opposition between the dark exterior and the whiteness of the interior. The patios, which generate reflections in the interiors, along with the constant sound of the sea make of this house a place to truly rest and relax.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSystemThe house is accessed through a ramp, which intercepts the blind wall in the front and articulates with the first patio of the residence. The social space opens to the north and to the landscape. Going through the second patio – between the public and private areas – and going up a few steps, the circulation connecting the rooms is found, where a projected linear slab and an opening in the bottom that takes the entire circulation, bathes the space with light, projecting it sharply on the floor, and generating intimacy in the rooms. The rooms live the landscape with openings from floor to ceiling. The third patio is articulated with the main room, creating a “camera of air and light” between the guest or kids rooms and the main dormitory.  Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralBondsThis beach house exceeded the owners expectations; since it has transformed into a permanent residente and gave a closer bond with the wildlife. It has become a frame to admire the landscape, a container for reading and meditation; habits that are hard to achieve when coexisting with the noise and pace of the city. The main nave, with its scale and opening towards the forest, calls for family and social gatherings.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralResearchThe biggest challenge facing this project and building this house was to work on a tight budget. We prioritized the orientation, in order to use the energy efficiently in both winter and summer; the flexibility in the spaces – because this was designed as a summer house, it was an important premise that needed to be accomplished -; and also the use of regional and noble materials, along with simplicity and synthesis in the details.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralProject gallerySee allShow lessThese are the Top 300 Architecture Firms in the USArchitecture NewsVideo: Pierre Bélanger Explains “EXTRACTION”, the Canadian Contribution to the 2016 …Architecture News Share Houses Argentina L House / Estudio PKa Area:  175 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Architects: Estudio PKa Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Projects Photographscenter_img L House / Estudio PKaSave this projectSaveL House / Estudio PKa ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/792491/l-house-estudio-pka Clipboard Photographs:  Alejandro Peral Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  2014 CopyAbout this officeEstudio PKaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa Costa PartidoArgentinaPublished on August 02, 2016Cite: “L House / Estudio PKa ” 02 Aug 2016.

Trans action demands social justice

first_imgTrans Day of Action in New York on June 28.The 9th Annual Trans Day of Action took place in New York City on June 28, called by TransJustice, a political group created by and for trans and gender non-conforming people of color (TGNC POC). Endorsed by more than 100 organizations, the rally and march, which began at the Christopher Street Piers, celebrated the long history of political activism of trans and gender non-conforming people and also addressed the growing poverty and rise of anti-trans bashings, especially toward women.New York police routinely arrest and charge trans people with prostitution, based on their gender identity. Another standard practice of the New York Police Department has been to single out, arrest and charge trans women and lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer youth with prostitution just for having three or more condoms on them.Imani HenryMore than 600 people came out on a blistering hot day for the midday rally, where they were greeted by Elliott Fukui, TransJustice coordinator, and Imani Henry, a TransJustice founding member. The groups represented on the program included Streetwise and Safe, Audre Lorde Project, FIERCE, TransLatina, Make the Road New York and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. All remarks were translated into Spanish and English.Imani Henry told Workers World, “People have been conditioned to think of trans people as only being concerned about our own rights or bodies. That Trans Day of Action is a pro-immigrant rights, anti-war march calling for access to jobs, housing, health care and education for all New Yorkers is significant.”The march through Greenwich Village was very spirited and militant, withchants of “What do we want? TransJustice! When do we want it? Now!” and “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, NYPD go away!”Elliott FukuiThe marchers went past the Stonewall Inn, site of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion which was led by trans youth of color who battled police violence for several days. This uprising helped to usher in the modern-day LGBTQ liberation movement, including the annual Pride marches around the country.Go to workers.org to read the 10 points of unity of TransJustice, which include an end to the U.S. “war on terror” and the prison-industrial complex as well as full legalization of all immigrants.TransJustice is part of the Audre Lorde Project, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, two spirit, trans and gender non-conforming people of color community organizing center, focusing on the New York City area.WW photos: Monica MooreheadFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Crossroads Lecture has partnered with the Center for Career and Professional Development this year. Kim Satz, the associate director for employer development in the career center, said the purpose of the event is to highlight religious diversity in the workplace and show how faith can inform career choices. The lecture will include TCU alumni panelists Dr. Ryan Huey, who graduated in 2008, and Rachel Rudberg, who graduated in 2017.Huey is a gastrointestinal medical oncologist at MD Anderson Cancer Center and a member of City Church Houston. Rudberg, an active member in the Dallas Jewish young adult community, works in the cardiothoracic and transplant intensive care unit at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. “Through our alumni panelists, we hope students gain a better sense of how faith can inform their choice vocation and the impact COVID-19 can have on work and spirituality,” said Satz. The eighth annual crossroads lecture will cover vocation, faith and COVID-19. (Graphic courtesy of RSL)An associate chaplain in RSL, Britt Luby, said the lecture will talk about pressing issues in mainstream media and how it intersects with religion. She plans to interview the alumni panelists for this event. COVID-19 caused issues for RSL when it came to planning this event, said Luby. She believes this event will enrich the TCU community because it will help students who care about their faith and career see how to navigate the workforce.“Understanding, especially students who choose to work in healthcare, how COVID-19 has changed work and what their work looks like now,” said Luby. “I think that’ll be interesting, especially for our pre-med students and our pre-health students to think: ‘What I thought being a nurse or doctor two years ago looks really different than what it looks like now,’ and they’ll get first-hand accounts of that.”For more information on the event, which will be held at 12:30 p.m. via Zoom, students can visit this website.
