Image source: Getty Images. During this market crash I have looked into William Hill (LSE:WMH) and Flutter Entertainment (LSE:FLTR).Market crash victimWilliam Hill is heavily reliant on its retail business, with over 1,500 shops across the UK. In fact, approximately 45% of William Hill’s revenue comes from its retail division. So it is fair to say that Covid-19 and the lockdown has been disastrous for William Hill. If you add to the closure of these shops the fact that sporting events have been cancelled around the world, things aren’t looking good right now in my opinion. 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…William Hill has seen nearly 50% of its share price value wiped off in 2020 alone. In reaction to the market crash it decided to suspend its dividend and has taken advantage of the UK government’s furlough scheme. Its staff costings come close to £400m per annum. Naturally advertising expenditure will decrease with a lack of sporting events which could save it a bit of money.William Hill’s share price has doubled since its mid-March market crash low of close to 40p. It is also a global player with market share across Europe and ever increasingly into the US market. The US could be a key market as a Supreme Court ruling in 2018 legalised sports betting. In turn, many states have begun to legalise it individually in their jurisdictions. The online gaming market is still ever present even if sporting events aren’t taking place right now, meaning there is still potential to make money. So, there is short-term pain here but potential longer-term opportunity to thrive if you are not averse to some risk. Too risky or worth it?Created by the merger of Betfair and Paddy Power, Flutter Entertainment is a gambling and gaming giant in the UK. With hundreds of retail outlets, Flutter also has a strong online presence through its multiple brands. It is also in the process of a nearly $7bn merger with Canadian gambling company The Stars Group, which will further expand its reach. Listed on the FTSE 100 index, Flutter Entertainment lost nearly 25% of its share price value due to the market crash. It is worth noting that its share price is currently higher than pre-crash levels. FLTR does possess a high price-to-earnings ratio of close to 50, which suggests it may be overpriced. In response to current market conditions it cancelled its 2020 dividend but is still paying its 2019 final dividend. This amounts to £1.61 per share but is in the form of shares, not cash. FLTR also decided to furlough many of its staff around the world albeit without government help. The decision to furlough indicates to me it is in a strong position to be able to pay wages without government help.FLTR’s Q1 trading update in early April showed revenue was up 16% year on year to £547m, including a healthy rise in both sports betting and online gaming. Sports betting will be affected for the next quarter due to cancelled events. In my opinion there is a longer term opportunity here. With the merger still going ahead there is some light at the end of the tunnel. However, it must be noted that debt levels will rise after the merger and there is no offer of a dividend either. FLTR is one worth considering if the price reduces in the market crash. Jabran Khan has no position in any shares mentioned.

The BT share price is rising fast. Here is what I would do now

Manika Premsingh | Monday, 8th March, 2021 | More on: BT-A The BT share price is rising fast. Here is what I would do now Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Manika Premsingh owns shares of BT GROUP PLC ORD 5P. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. FTSE 100 telecom biggie BT (LSE: BT-A) is finally seeing an upturn in its share price, even if it is in fits and starts. The BT share price started its upward climb in November last year as the stock market rally started.Or so it appeared. By early January this year, it had started plunging again and remained uncertain in February. But since the start of March, it has risen by an impressive 14%. 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…Can the BT share price rise continue?I think the question for investors now is – can this rise continue? This question is important because there are at least two trends that suggest otherwise:#1. The BT share price is back to its pre-crash levels now, in line with a trend seen across other FTSE 100 stocks. This means that there has to be fresh impetus for the share price to rise from here. Is there?#2. When the stock market crash happened last year, the BT share price was already falling. In fact, it had been falling for a long time. So has anything changed fundamentally to allow a share price rise now?What guides the BT share price?The key point here is that there is a case for a rise in the BT share price if there are indeed positive fundamental changes at BT or if all shares prices are ready to rise on the back of sheer investor optimism. The latest BT share price rally coincides with the departure of Chair Jan du Plessis. In his four years with the company, the BT share price halved. But the fact is that the BT share price had been falling since late-2015. The company has a bunch of issues to deal with, including a competitive market and a business that requires huge investments. At least until early 2020 it had an impressive dividend yield. But even its dividends were cancelled last year, which left little incentive to buy the struggling stock.What happens next?I reckon that things can change for BT. It does intend to bring its dividend back. This should be a positive for income investors, going by BT’s high dividend yield in the past. While its financials suffered a setback in 2019, the fact is that otherwise it is a resilient, profit-making company with a market-leadership position, even if it is not exactly the fastest growing. But that could change too. And it is a cheap UK share right now. The company’s price-to-earnings ratio is at around 9 times. The takeawayI think on balance, the odds in favour of BT are even, considering the challenges it faces. Another stock market rally could tilt the odds firmly in its favour, though.Otherwise, however, as much as I like the company (and have already bought the share in the post-Covid-19 world), I would watch for a few more signs of turnaround before buying it again now.

The starting point of the project was formulated according to the urban program: a new multifunctional building in congruity to the existing old warehouses a firm structure with flexible principles of living and working an expressive head for the row of warehouses the continuation of the views from the city towards the Harbour a square along the water as an important public space the realization of extra parking spaces for the neighbourhoodSave this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe program consisted of 4000 m² of housing, 4000 m² of offices and a parking garage with 250 places. A ground floor area of 35 x 45 meters with four stories and a vertical accent on the head of the building consisting of 8 stories. Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe project is situated along the South quay of the IJ and forms a multiform space together with the Barentszplein, the Silodam and the Stenen Hoofd . The Kop van Diemenstraat plays a strategic role in this urban context. The volume of the building is stretched in such a way that the Barentszplein becomes spatially defined. The building is partly lifted to reveal important views between the harbour and the city, while the sunken square beneath offers an interesting public space along the water. From the harbour-side the view towards the Northside of the IJ is continued. The street façade is continued and the head of the building forms a specific stature on the site. Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe ‘Barentszplein’ is a square for the neighbourhood and functions as a playground for children, while the square in front of the building has a more urban function for the harbour, warehouses and the Silodam. It consists of two parts, namely one underneath the lifted volume and an oblique square that slopes into the water. The entrance of the building is situated on the square underneath the building and is depressed by one meter underneath street level. The height-difference of the square together with the staircase and the ramps towards the parking garage separate the heavily used road from the square. The covered square is materialised in granite tiles. The oblique square on the other hand is materialised in granite stones and grass zones and laid out with public benches and trees. Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe program consists of 41 selling apartments and 6 social rental apartments (4.289 m² ), 20 units of office spaces (2010 m² ) and parking-garage with 194 spaces. The parking-garage consists of 2 stories, one storey for the neighbourhood and one for the building itself.Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerIn similarity to the warehouses the building has a firm structure, which can incorporate different schemes. The main entrance is located underneath the lifted volume. In relation to efficiency, changeability and social security the organization of the building is basically designed. The basis of the building enhances two contra nooses connected to a central staircase that organizes the whole building. The parking-garage is accessible through ramps from the ‘Silodam’. In relation to orientation, noise pollution of the traffic and the windy local climate, a greater part of the dwellings has a solarium as an outside space. The office spaces are situated on the street side and are laid out over three stories, the ground floor units are accessible from the ‘van Diemenstraat’. Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe extraordinary measurements of the apartments and office spaces, the width of 7,5 meters and the spacious internal height of 3,1 meters, make a large diversity of flexible and interchangeable housing and office spaces possible. In this way the dwellings and office space are not only organized together but as well typological interwoven with each other. The width of 7,5 meters also enables three parking spaces. The courtyard is 10 meter wide, together with the depth of the apartments on both sides make an efficient parking depth of 32 meters with two lanes and 4 parking spaces. The flexible plan of the housing makes a variety of housing schemes possible, like ‘doorzon’, diagonal and front- back situation. Within the partitioning wall a core of 1,2 meters is designed to combine office units.Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe standard apartments have an internal surface of 80 m² . The specific apartments and office spaces have a surface of 105-110-130-145-155 m² . These apartments and office spaces are situated in the plinth, upper floors on the water side and corner positions. Apartments of two stories are designed as maisonette or city lofts. All apartments have an internal height of 3,1 meters and in specific situations up to 5 meters height. Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe choice for prefabrication of the building is made because the site conditions, the intensively used road and the location along the water. Without scaffolding the building and facade can be fabricated with a crane situated in the courtyard of the building. The concrete sandwich elements have the measurements of one apartment. The cloqué forms a continuous pattern wrapped around the building. The pattern of lines dividing the panels in facet discontinues the repetition of the elements. The diagonal seam of 10 mm in depth runs over the facet-shaped concrete elements dividing the upper part which is polished and the lower part which is finished with acid. This produces a variety in representation of the facade that reacts to weather conditions. The concrete elements can be produced along the assembly line through the specific proportion of the division by 1/3 to 1/2 or 1/2 to 2/3. With a minimal formwork a maximum of variety is achieved. The intention of the research for the materialization was such that the inevitable pollution does not diminish the quality of the facade but forms a natural patina. In contrast to the outside which reflects to the harbor, the inside is materialized in wood-slats to reflect the more intimate nature of the space. Save this picture!Courtesy of B. Tjhie – C. BakkerThe outside spaces of the apartments on the ‘van Diemenstraat’ are designed as solariums in relation to the sound pollution. In this way the dwellings can be ventilated naturally and additional installation was reduced, which improves the maintenance and investment costs.

In historic move, prime minister says he will decriminalize defamation

first_img News April 24, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 In historic move, prime minister says he will decriminalize defamation CambodiaAsia – Pacific RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” News News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today hailed Prime Minister Hun Sen’s decision on 21 April to abolish imprisonment for defamation in Cambodia and urged other countries in Southeast Asia to follow suit, calling it an essential step towards real and lasting press freedom.“Parliament must take up this government proposal and turn it into law as soon as possible,” the press freedom organisation said. “It will make Cambodia one of the few Asian countries to have purged their legislation of this archaic provision, which has too often been used to imprison journalists arbitrarily.”Nonetheless, when announcing the proposed reform at a news conference, the prime minister warned journalists to “draft their articles well” in order to avoid lawsuits. Journalists who write articles that damage someone’s reputation would still be fined, he insisted.The government prosecuted several journalists last year and some, such as Mam Sonando, the owner of radio Sombok Khmum (Beehive FM 105), were imprisoned.As it stands, the law on defamation provides for preventive detention and a sentence of a year in prison or a fine of 10 million riels (2,100 euros). Amendment of article 63 will just do away with the prison sentence. It must be approved by parliament before it can take effect.Former King Norodom Sihanouk meanwhile today said he would sue the magazine L’Echo du Cambodge for publishing an article that was “hostile” towards him. The magazine recently carried extracts from “Des courtisans aux partisans,” a 1971 book about Cambodia by French writers Serge Thion and Jean-Claude Pomonti. The king previously said he would not sue journalists out of respect for press freedom. Elsewhere, the information ministry said it had ordered a halt to the publication of extracts from the book in the magazine.

Opinion: Why the Best Time to Take the SAT is This May

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes For some students, especially those who will be the first in their families to go to college, the choice is simple. The SAT is the only test. It’s the test students hear about and the test students think they “need to take to go to college.” Some students, however, know that the choice isn’t that simple. The choice is between the ACT and the SAT — a choice not between content but performance. Essentially the choice is made predicated on which test will yield the best score.It’s no secret that the SAT has been losing “favor,” and it’s no surprise that the New SAT resembles the ACT — its only competitor. The SAT has presumably shed its old identity as a test that is trying to trick students and now emerges as a test that is a re-interpretation of the ACT.I have an inkling that many parents will steer their students away from the New SAT simply because they don’t know what to expect. But I argue that now is the best time to take the SAT. For the sake of full disclosure, I teach College Access Plan’s (CAP’s) free after school SAT class at four PUSD high schools. We teach the SAT not because we are in cahoots with College Board; we teach it to meet community need. Many of the students we strive to serve have never heard of the ACT and neither have their parents. Around these parts, you only know of the ACT if you have institutional knowledge passed along to you. This is the West Coast after all.The reason why I argue that now is the best time to take the SAT is because it is new. Now is as fair as the SAT is going to get. Not as many people have seen the test. Not as many people have been able to dissect it, extrapolate from it, or learn from it. Socioeconomic, cultural, and institutional disparities will never be eradicated from testing, and, let’s face it, test prep is one of those things that puts students at an advantage or disadvantage. However, with the limited number of tests out in the ether and with Khan Academy videos available to those with internet and computer access, the field is, as far as I can see, as even as it gets.Also, both the ACT and SAT are graded on a scale adjusted to ensure that different versions of the test are comparable. Now is when there is no comparable version for the New SAT to be measured against. Students will be compared against their testing cohort. The ACT, however, needs no adjustment. It is the same test it has always been, and scores this May will be scaled to previous tests. For the ACT, now is just as good a time as any other time to take the test, just as it has always been. This, of course, greatly advantages students who have the ability to invest the time and resources — sometimes over many years — to prepare for this one test.The reality is that two historically ACT states, Illinois and Michigan, have recently inked contracts with College Board to replace the ACT and take the SAT state-wide. Many in my industry believe that the SAT is going the way of the dodo, but College Board’s aggressive attack on the ACT — and subsequent success — indicates that the death of the SAT may be greatly exaggerated.If I had it my way in the current state of college admissions, all students would have the time, support, and resources to take both tests and determine which score to submit to schools based on whichever test plays to each of their individual strengths. In fact, through its partnerships with both CAP and Princeton Review, PUSD provides students this unique opportunity by offering free classes on the ACT and the SAT. I’m not arguing that one test is better than the other. What I am arguing is that now is not the time to write off the SAT. There is a brief window where it will be advantageous to the student to take the SAT, not because of a change in format or content, but because of change itself. Being forced to adjust usually equalizes things a bit.College Access Plan’s free SAT courses are offered at Muir, Pasadena, Marshall Fundamental, and Blair high schools starting February 22nd.
