Senior figures from Google, Infosys Technologies, Cisco Systems, Microsoft and Spotify are among the many guests and Google’s invite-only “nightcap” or drinks party on Friday is being touted as this year’s hottest ticket.In an attempt to provide a counterpart to the many doom and gloom forecasts this year, the conference is also hosting a “tech pioneers” programme that aims to bring together technology entrepreneurs from around the globe. The programme gives awards to 31 technology start-ups and invites them to the forum to give their leaders a chance to network and exchange ideas. William Brindley, chief executive of tech social enterprise NetHope, will also tell Davos delegates that tech is key to the aspiration of “shared norms” at the heart of the forum’s agenda. “The pace of change and technological innovation is great, but it should be thought of as part of the solution, not just a problem,” he says. last_img read more

3 reasons why I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today

first_img3 reasons why I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The market crash caused by coronavirus means that many large-cap shares trade on low valuations. As such, now could be a great time to invest in a diverse range of cheap FTSE 100 shares.There are three reasons why I believe these investments have the potential to deliver high returns and improve your financial prospects over the long term.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…Cheap FTSE 100 shares on offerAt present, many FTSE 100 shares appear to offer excellent value for money. Indeed, many of these companies are trading at a significant discount to their 2019 year-end values. This may mean that they offer a wide margin of safety.In many cases, these stocks are undervalued because investors have flocked to safer assets such as cash and bonds. The organisations have reported little to no impact on their sales as a result of coronavirus.Therefore, these cheap FTSE 100 shares look undervalued and could offer substantial returns for investors when confidence returns.Passive income streamMany cheap FTSE 100 shares also offer attractive dividend yields. A number of blue-chip stocks have cut or suspended their payouts recently, and this has had a significant impact on investor sentiment towards income stocks.However, many companies with defensive characteristics have avoided dividend cuts. After recent declines, many defensive FTSE 100 income shares now offer dividend yields that are above their historical averages.A high dividend yield in comparison to history can indicate a margin of safety. As a result, many cheap FTSE 100 shares now look to offer a margin of safety after recent declines. This implies that income investors who buy these stocks today could be well rewarded over the long run.Global diversificationCheap FTSE 100 shares also offer global diversification.If you spread the risk across a wide range of companies, you are less reliant on a small number of businesses to generate profits and income. This is particularly important in the current environment.Clearly, the outlook for the global economy is mixed in the near term. However, the economy has repeatedly recovered from significant setbacks in the past. It is likely to do so this time around as well, although it could be several years before the economy returns to full health. Some industries could be hit harder than others.As a result, owning a diverse portfolio of investments seems sensible. Many cheap FTSE 100 shares provide international diversification as well as diversification across product lines.Combining these companies with other businesses, that operate in a mix of sectors, could substantially reduce your risks of being negatively impacted by the coronavirus crisis. You could also significantly improve your chances of generating an attractive return on your investments over time.Therefore, now could be the perfect time to buy a diversified basket of cheap FTSE 100 shares for your portfolio. Doing so could dramatically boost your financial prospects in the long run.

The brief was for a modern, low maintenance dwelling with views in all directions, and provided an opportunity to re-imagine the vernacular a modern-day beach house.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThe principle sitting of the house locates the primary form close to the southern boundary to provide a northern orientation to the principal living spaces. The spatial layout was also informed by the clients desire to be able to view the outdoors in all directions from all rooms in the house – a requirement informed by their previous house located on an expansive farm in western Victoria. Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThe project provided an opportunity for a private house to engage at an urban level and explores the relationship between public and private space. The ground floor living space and upper-level windows are articulated with mechanically operable screens creating a seamlessly integrated façade. Pragmatically the operable shutters expose views to the Barwon River, control ventilation and solar access and provide privacy from the adjacent street. The screens are built using Western Red Cedar, a highly sustainable forestry product. The operability and translucency of the shutters contribute to a level of physical engagement with the street. This is amplified in the evenings when the glowing perforations animate the façade and create a playful and vibrant façade, whilst providing privacy from the street below.  Save this picture!© Benjamin Hosking The project employs several passive solar and ESD initiatives. Recesses in the ground floor façade provide the ground floor living, dining and bedroom spaces with protection from the summer sun, whilst allowing the winter sun to passively heat the spaces. A north-facing courtyard is formed between the two living areas, providing a seamless entertaining area when the doors are open from the dining space. Enclosed on three sides, the courtyard is sheltered from the cold southern winds, whilst the overhanging floor plate provides protection from sun to the dining space through the summer periods. The travertine tiles on the slab act as a thermal mass to absorb and store heat. Crossflow ventilation occurs between the northern southern courtyards, passively cooling the living, dining and kitchen spaces. Stormwater is collected in a 20,000L water tank and reused for garden irrigation and toilet flushing, and photovoltaic solar panels and a solar hot water system are located on the roof.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingSeachange House sought to achieve value for money outcome, balancing between the client aspirations, site constraints and budget limitations, whilst employing a wide range of ESD principles. This process resulted in a home that is relatively low cost, robust and minimal, yet notably integrates the qualities of light and volume to subtly amplify the owners’ living conditions and actively engages and contributes to the street and its coastal surrounds. Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingProject gallerySee allShow lessDragon Boat Museum / Li Xiaodong AtelierSelected ProjectsLuxembourg Learning Center / Valentiny Hvp ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houses Save this picture!© Benjamin Hosking+ 17Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927981/seachange-house-solomon-troup-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Barwon Heads, Australia Lead Architect: CopyAbout this officeSolomon Troup ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarwon HeadsOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on November 08, 2019Cite: “Seachange House / Solomon Troup Architects” 07 Nov 2019.

The building is located in a Byzantine settlement on the eastern slopes of Mount Taygetus, at the edge of the Anakolon canyon, looking over the plain of Laconia. In order to climb the canyon, you pass between giant rock formations and near running water to come face to face with the majesty of Mount Taygetus in the distance. The surrounding area is one of outstanding natural beauty and forms part of the Natura 2000 Network. I knew the area very well, even before undertaking the project. The inhabitants, who love music, had hosted our percussion group on many occasions, to take part in musical activities, seminars, and traditional carnival disguises.Save this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosThis link is what gave the house its name, Yoik of Taygetus, which refers to this very distinctive musical form performed by the Sami people in the region of Northern Europe. Each yoik is a sound, a song, a most personal expression dedicated to a person, an animal or a landscape. The yoik expresses its reference in a spiritual manner, using the sounds of nature. Just as a yoik imprints the aura of humans and things onto the immaterial world of music, thus this house transports something of the soul of this mountain region into the material, contemporary world, utilizing vernacular forms and natural materials. The plot contained a ruined stone building with an arched roof and a yard: a “katoi” used to house animals.Save this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosThe overall solution for the residence proposes a new layer of habitation above the level of the ruin, symbolizing progress and creating new historical stratification in the succession of the village’s temporal and spatial layers of existence. The building was constructed below road level so that its lower height makes a more gentle impact on the environment. A walker, crossing the path before the house does not lose sight of the overall view of the landscape and the mountain range. The house owner sought a winter sanctuary, whose size could be “modified”, so he could use it either alone or, in other instances, accompanied by family and friends. This gave rise to a modular construction with three distinct segments, which can be isolated or unified at will: the “liakoto” sun porch or solar: the entrance to the house; the “makrynari” or long room, which is the main space in the building; and the “domatia”, the space for the two bedrooms and the bathrooms. The liakoto The entrance space hovers over the old yard.Save this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosA “bridge” open on both sides with small inset windows or “tzamilikia” makes reference to traditional solars or sun porches, joining the two parts of the house and visually linking the two points of the horizon, east, and west, leaving the gaze to pass over and through this towards the plain, in order not to interrupt the continuity of the landscape. The makrynari The daytime area stretches along the length of the residence on the south-western side of the main entrance, at ninety degrees to the canyon. The south-eastern aspect is open to the view and looks downhill, into the canyon and the mountains that frame it. The single glass surface brings light and warmth into the house during the winter months, as the daylight hours are few and sunset comes early under the heavy shadow of Mount Taygetus. The north-western aspect is stone and forms a unified low wall facing the road, with the mountain mass behind it. This anchors the metal frames that support the pent style roof, which slopes in only one direction. Using as its reference point the traditional “hanging” balconies, the frames terminate in leaning metal columns, to support the balcony that runs along the length of the building and into the interior of the house.Save this picture!SectionThe interior of the stone side develops into a system that encloses the equipment for all the ways space is used: as a kitchen, library, sitting room, sleeping loft. The construction extends through to the exterior, with an outdoor kitchen, providing a sense of continuity and the flow of one space into another. The glass side has a single bench running in front of the windows which extends, using the same rationale, to create the covered outdoor eating area. Three steps down there is an outdoor seating area around a fire pit, as well as an eating area under the shade of the trees. This central space, along with the bathroom, can be isolated to create a space that is independent of the remaining residence The domatia To the north-east of the central entrance there are two bedrooms and the bathrooms. This space, which was placed over the initial stone building and follows its outline, constitutes a distinct, independent, composite construct, that does not rest on the older building. The outside is clad in wood planks, in the way of many houses in the village.Save this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosSave this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosThe interior has a metal construction lays out space, the lofts, bathrooms, and bedrooms. The intent of this addition is to extend upwards and be distinct, visually and construction-wise from the existing building, as a contemporary light construction soaring over the heavier stone ruin. The original building is maintained and viewed as an interesting element from the past, a lingering memory imprint. There are no interventions besides the requisite support work in the spirit of restoration rather than domestic use. Access is through an outdoor staircase, as the building does not join the remaining residence functionally, implying its different identity and origins. We chose a combination of traditional and contemporary materials. The weight-bearing construction of the ground floor is partly stone, partly ytong blocks (autoclaved aerated concrete) and partly metal frame, covered by polyurethane panels supported by a metal frame. The floors are self-leveling monochromes, the interior wood is marine-grade plywood with beech veneers, while the exterior is clad in larch wood. The building has a small energy footprint, as appropriate heat insulation materials were utilized throughout, as well as heat pumps, automation, and passive solar systems. Its orientation on the plot, and the raised floor level, that creates a closed air zone between the natural ground and the residence, improved its thermal characteristics considerably. Yoik of Taygetus was built by small local contractors.Save this picture!© Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George HatzakosProject gallerySee allShow lessGame Boarding Regional DevelopmentArticlesHouse in Gakuenmae / Fujiwaramuro ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Area:  122 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Viceversa, Angela Varveri& George Hatzakos Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project center_img 2020 Houses Greece Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Kommerling, Scarabeo, TRIDONIC, APOSTOLOS LIANOS, Decra, I.LEBESIS Photographs ArchDaily CopyHouses•Sparti, Greece Architects: Z-level Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Projects Yoik of Taygetus House / Z-levellast_img read more

Ag Lending and Interest Expense Increasing for Farmers

Demand for all types of loans, except for farm machinery and livestock, increased significantly over 2016. Operating expenses continue to make up the majority of loan origination. Loans for livestock made up over a quarter of all new non-real estate loans. The total value of operating and livestock loans increased almost 50 percent over the previous year, but they’re still below 2014 and 2015 levels.Large loans continue to make up the majority of farm loan volumes at commercial banks. Because of high production costs, loans of $100,000 or more continue to make up more than 70 percent of loan volume. After declining through 2016, the average size of farm loans grew in every quarter of 2017. Interest rates on all types of farm loans increased in the fourth quarter of last year. Total farm debt increased in the third quarter of 2017 from the previous year. The slight jump is due to both real estate and non-real estate debt. Delinquency rates are still low for both real estate and non-real estate loans, staying near two percent in the third quarter of last year.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Lending and Interest Expense Increasing for Farmerslast_img read more
