3 simple steps to use this market crash to get rich and retire early

first_img Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 2nd June, 2020 Enter Your Email Address 3 simple steps to use this market crash to get rich and retire early I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

After all, the outlook for the world economy is very uncertain, and news regarding coronavirus could change quickly.However, through buying high-quality businesses while they offer a margin of safety you could improve your long-term financial outlook. This strategy has been successful in the past, and could help you to retire early.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…High-quality stocksDue to the challenging outlook for the world economy, perhaps the most important criteria for purchasing any stock is its ability to survive a likely recession and the potential for a further market crash. Therefore, any business you seek to purchase should have a solid balance sheet, in terms of modest debt levels and substantial amounts of cash, as well as some defensive characteristics.Such companies may be in a strong position to not only survive an economic downturn, but also to strengthen their market position. For example, they may be able to win market share from weaker competitors. Or they could capitalise on low valuations to buy competitors at bargain prices. Either way, they could generate higher levels of profit over the long run, and produce higher stock prices as a result.Margin of safety after a market crashInvesting with a margin of safety is a sound strategy that helps to reduce risk and improve your return prospects. Essentially, it means buying an asset for less than it is worth. In doing so, you obtain a margin of safety that could be especially useful in the current uncertain economic climate, when the stock market’s recent rebound may give way to a market crash.Assessing a company’s value at the present time is, of course, highly challenging. Earnings and asset prices could change, which could make some valuation metrics unreliable. However, by focusing on a range of measures, such as yields, price-to-book (P/B) and price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and comparing them to industry peers as well as historic values, it may be possible to gauge whether a stock offers good value for money. Buying it at a discount to its intrinsic value could lead to a more favourable risk/reward opportunity.Long-term focusThe near-term prospects for the stock market are likely to be very uncertain. The risk of further coronavirus cases in the coming months may cause investor sentiment to rapidly shift from positive to negative, which could cause a further market crash.Therefore, investing for the long term could be a shrewd move. It will enable you to look beyond the short-term volatility that is likely to be present across the stock market. And you could use it to your advantage in terms of buying high-quality businesses at low prices.The track record of the stock market shows that it has always recovered from is lowest points during a variety of bear markets. Yes, that prospect may seem unlikely right now. But by adopting a long-term focus, you could stand to benefit from an equity market recovery that enables you to retire early.  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.

Wales v Fiji: Talking points

first_imgWatch highlights from the match below Wins a win….#WALvFIJ— Martyn Williams (@martynewilliams) November 15, 2014Hat tip for FijiYou have to admire the Fijian performance against Wales. Leaving aside the disparity in funding and infrastructure which creates a huge disadvantage from the outset, Fiji had no right to be within four points of Wales. Yes, this is a team which featured Nemani Nadolo Nasiganiyavi, Vereniki Goneva Metuisela Talebula Maijaina, but all of them were playing out of their favoured club positions. The Ospreys’ Josh Matavesi was playing at standoff instead of his more familiar role at 12. Fiji didn’t even have a recognised goal kicker – Nadolo may have had a higher kicking completion than Wales, on Saturday, but over his career he has scored more tries than either penalties or conversions for Fiji. And let’s not forget they were a man down for 28 minutes. Bravo Fiji. Flying Fijian: Nadolo scored Fiji’s only try, when they were down to 14 menWales concede against 14 menThere were many areas of the Welsh performance over which Warren Gatland and his staff will pour, but the most worrying of all was that 15-man Wales couldn’t score a point when they had a one man advantage over Fiji for 28 minutes. Even though current thinking largely disproves the theory that teams generally concede up to seven points when they receive a yellow card – the current figure is nearer 2.5 points – those teams with a one man advantage certainly should not be conceding points. Wales actually conceded seven points during the period in which they had a one man advantage. If they struggled against 14 Fijians – they’re going to have a massive shock when 15 first choice All Black’s rock up at the Millennium Stadium next week. @BBCScrumV just wanted to say that I thought referee Pascal Gauzere was outstanding yesterday, made all the right decisions #WALVFIJ— Andy Neilson (@AndyNeilson07) November 16, 2014Consistency is crippling Wales.The lack of consistency illustrated by Wales against Fiji highlights the huge gap that exists between Wales and the All Blacks, Australia and South Africa. Yes, Wales broadly have players of equal quality as the big three, particularly Australia and South Africa, and their fitness levels are up there with the best. All of which mean that Wales are able to be largely competitive with the ‘Top 3’. However, the major difference is that Wales aren’t able to maintain a consistency in their performance. In seven days, the Welsh squad has gone from almost beating Australia to almost losing to Fiji – Australia are ranked third and Fiji are ranked 12th (correct as of 10 November). The Welsh backline almost doubled their turnover rate in just seven days and the teams’ overall tackle completion dropped to 85% – way below the norm for Wales. Can you imagine Australia, South Africa, or the All Blacks having such a performance dip over a seven day period? It’s a genuine problem and one which, until it’s resolved, will mean that Wales may always languish at the bottom end of the tier one nations. A win’s a win, but Wales’ performance stuttered – in the second half especially. Here we analyse what went right and what went wrong for Warren Gatland’s team… center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS When offloads go wrongWales may have beaten Fiji 17-13 but it was as error strewn a performance as you are likely to see from a tier one nation – without actually losing the game. It was clear from the whistle that Wales would continue the expansive game that they had started against the Wallabies seven days earlier. Early on, it worked. Wales ran some well executed patterns and scored two tries in 16 minutes. The first was created by a simple Rhys Priestland ‘pivot’ in midfield, and the second by a switch to the blindside which allowed Alex Cuthbert to stroll into the corner. However, whilst the admirable desire to pass the ball continued, the quality of execution didn’t. In total, Wales offloaded the ball 20 times – that’s twice as much as either France or Australia, five times the number attempted by South Africa and a staggering ten times more than England. The problem is that Wales’ desire to keep the ball alive often meant that the ball, when carried into contact, was held away from the safety of the ball carriers’ chest. Combine that with Fiji’s penchant for chest-high tackling and turnovers were highly likely. Wales coughed up 20 turnovers in total – that’s more turnovers than the head pancake chef performed at Pancake World, during Pancake Week, on Pancake Day, during happy hour. I dread to think what will happen if they turn the ball over 20 times against New Zealand….Try guy: Wales’ first half tactics saw North and Cuthbert (above) score triesLiam Williams on fireLiam Williams was tremendous against Fiji and was Wales’ best player by some distance. He carried the ball an incredible 207 metres, which is a remarkable number in Test rugby. He also beat 11 defenders, a figure not often reached by an entire team let alone an individual. Despite his reputation for having a hot head his skills were ice cold. His passing, kicking and collection of high balls were very accurate and surpassed that of any of his peers on the day. His performance on Saturday will come as no surprise to those who have seen him playing regional rugby this season and in particular his desire to hit the outside channels at full pace. Whether it is on the wing or in his preferred full back position Williams offers Warren Gatland something that few others currently do. He has to start.

My Day Off: Joe and Sam Simmonds of Exeter Chiefs

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie is another Chief who is always scouting for a game of golf, regardless of his physical state or the weather. Sam can’t understand that, though he looks genuinely at ease here at the driving range. He’ll even come back to Exminster for a hit, he reckons.The Simmonds pair’s sporting fates have usually followed similar lines. Both of them played football first. In a flight of good-natured delusion, Sam compares himself to Steven Gerrard, talking up 
his engine, while Joe says he was more like Wayne Rooney. They debate over who was the better footballer. Sam 
feels he was the player’s player, while Joe, who captained Torquay juniors, thinks he was technically better.After Sam went to Ivybridge Community College and started really focusing on rugby, Joe followed suit. Rugby had always been at the background of their lives, with dad an openside and an uncle a six for Teignmouth and then Devon County.It was at Ivybridge that a coach dissuaded Sam from moving out of the back row and back to the wing, where he’d played when he was younger. Joe, who tried the back row himself but got out of there as soon as he could, to utilise his footballing 
skills, is glad Sam stuck in the pack. “He’s a different player to what No 8s usually are,” Joe says.And he is right. Sam has zip. The elder adds: “That’s the only way I know how 
to play, really. I’ve always loved trying to beat people and that’s the way I carry the ball I guess. I try to explode onto the ball, with some power. I don’t think in the game, ‘I’m going to step here’. It comes naturally. That’s the way I run the ball. If it works and it’s beating defenders…“I think I can improve on my passing. 
I could set up others but if I do break the line I tend to keep going, keep carrying. Which is what the coaches at Exeter want from me, to be a strong carrier.“Eddie’s almost the same I guess. He knows that me and the likes of Nathan Hughes and Billy Vunipola are all different in our stature and how we 
play. But if Eddie’s picking me on my form for Exeter, then I’m sure I’m doing something right. There are improvements they’ll want me to make, like put on a little bit more weight, which I feel like I’ve done since coming back from the autumn (Internationals).”Joe flinches at this call and Sam adds: “I can’t get too heavy, can I? I wouldn’t be able to run. This is me now.”He definitely doesn’t mean that he will stop improving, only that he now knows what kind of player he is. Both Simmonds brothers seem assured of what they are. They have been nurtured by Exeter and feel better for stints down the leagues, 
with Sam loaned to Cornish Pirates before becoming a 
hit and Joe having played 
for Plymouth in National One.Letting rip: Sam at Exmouth driving range (Photo: Phil Mingo/PPAUK)Both agree that part of Exeter’s brilliance is that DoR Rob Baxter both appreciates, and recruits talent from, the second-tier Championship. Examples of such successes are found in Wales tighthead Tomas Francis and England’s Harry Williams (who set up his own five-a-side team in Exeter and then insisted on playing himself up front).Sam is thankful for his experiences down a league. He says: “There are clever players there. It’s just that the game moves so quickly now. Once 
you do get a little bit older you’re still 
a very good player, even though you’re maybe not playing Premiership rugby. And the Championship is still churning out good players every year.”Joe, meanwhile, is happy for the 
room he has in which to grow his game down in Devon. “With Exeter you get a lot of opportunities to play, especially for the younger lads. They wouldn’t sign you for nothing; they’ve signed you because they think you can play at the same level as everyone else.“It’s good having players like Gareth Steenson and the older boys around as you learn off them. They’ve been there and done that. It’s been great for me these last couple of years, being around the team and learning from everyone.”On a ride back into Exeter, the two continue bouncing through conversation. They talk about the way the Chiefs play compared to a team like Glasgow Warriors, the fact Alec Hepburn drives a Buick and smokes a pipe, and why Sam is too crap at cooking to join Chiefs’ ‘Cookie Club’. My Day Off: Joe and Sam Simmonds of Exeter ChiefsTHERE IS no fighting at the driving range. Sam Simmonds is clearly happy with his work at Exminster Golf Centre after pummeling drives to respectable distances. And brother Joe is undeniably at home with a golf club in his hands.Such calm is not totally commonplace for the two Exeter Chiefs. As soon as Sam, 23, and Joe, 21, start talking, they ricochet off each other. They challenge one another; laugh at the other’s views. They have a history of bickering.With a look that whispers mischief, fly-half Joe throws this out: “There was actually a fight a couple of weeks ago.”“Oh Christ, yeah, we nearly had a full-on fight before one of the games,” No 8 and England international Sam says in response. “We were at home… He just knows how to rile me a little bit.”Joe picks up: “I was wearing one of his hats and he told me to take it off. I didn’t.”Sam jumps in again: “I won’t go into it but he does know how to rattle me. I got a little bit annoyed with that, gave him a little kick and he lost his head, punched me twice. Mum comes running in…”“It wasn’t proper punches, it was the heel of the hand,” says Joe, with a grin.“It was. To the back of the head,” Sam counters. “Well, I was still standing after it. I think we just get a little too competitive.”Hot streak: Sam Simmons evades London IrishSocially, the pair from Teignmouth should be best observed as a double act.In rugby terms, Sam has crept ahead of Joe after exploding onto the scene at the tail-end of Chiefs’ title-winning run in 2017.Sam has carried his club form into this season. Last November Eddie Jones brought the racing-snake back-rower into his England set-up, capping him twice off the bench before giving him a first Test start against Samoa. With a number of squad injuries, he kept his place for the Six Nations wins over Italy and Wales, missed the loss to Scotland with shoulder gyp, and returned for Paris, coming on early in the defeat that ended England’s hopes of retaining their title. In the Premiership he has been simply explosive.Joe, on the other hand, is seen as Exeter’s long-term successor to Gareth Steenson at ten. He is not blessed with imposing size but relishes the kicking game and is swiftly improving the nuances that every stand-off needs. He caught the eye during the international windows – and beyond, with a string of sublime displays – and if everything goes to plan you will be seeing a lot more of him over the next few seasons.However different the two are on the pitch, though, there are ties that bind them. They both still live with mum Nicola and stepdad Dean. With Sam giving the housing market a look, it’s very likely Joe will move in with him.It is tempting fate, that. Sam is often home before Joe, who is fond of staying behind after Chiefs’ training to do some extras. All too frequently, Joe will casually saunter through the door only to be terrified by Sam jumping out at him.And with this, Joe recounts another close run-in with big bro: “I remember, this must have been a few years ago now, he was chasing me up the stairs.”Sam, keen not to be the bad guy, explains: “He threw a ball up and hit it with something and it smacked me right in the face. We both just stood there for a moment and then he ran upstairs and locked himself in the bathroom.”Joe concludes: “I was s******* myself and I put a £5 note under the toilet door to get him to go away. I was about to jump out the window I was that scared!”Sam clearly has a hint of a temper and can get frustrated if he is not noticeably good at something. At least with golf.Fine few months: Joe Simmonds scores for ExeterIn the summer, he was playing the nine-hole course at Starcross. He made it to the sixth hole before picking up his clubs and heading to his car, to sit and wait for the others to wrap up.It was the taunting from mates who “weren’t very good either” that tipped him over the edge. Joe chips in that there is a key difference between the Simmonds brothers: Joe will play on. Look at the two swings. Sam’s is 
a short, weighty jab, throwing his shoulders through everything without much lower-body movement. When he connects, especially with 
the driver, the ball bursts far.By comparison, Joe’s swing looks like the spreading of whipped butter. It’s clear that Joe – who cannot sit still, according to Sam – has put in the hours. He’s never had lessons but has a single-digit handicap and, with one of his pals already doing so, he hopes that he could be a club pro when rugby is over.center_img No 8 Sam plays for England and brother Joe is seen as the long-term future at ten for Exeter. But none of that matters on the driving range! This feature fist appeared in Rugby World in April. Maybe Sam will one day become a carpenter – he has done a course recently – and Joe will teach golf. Maybe they’ll leave home.Until those days though, there’s lots more rugby to play and maybe, just maybe, a round of golf where one doesn’t try to kill the other.last_img read more

Jon Bruno of the Diocese of Los Angeles presents a globe to Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori representing peace among the Abrahamic faiths. The globe is a duplicate of those given to faith leaders at an interfaith event marking the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Photo/Penny Jennings[The Episcopal News – Diócesis de Los Ángeles] La obispa primada, Katharine Jefferts Schori, instó a los episcopales a “invertir en el legítimo desarrollo de Cisjordania y Gaza” en lugar de concentrarse en desinvertir o boicotear a Israel, durante un almuerzo de “Pacificadores del Oriente Medio” que tuvo lugar el 25 de marzo en Los Ángeles.“La Iglesia Episcopal no apoya la desinversión o el boicot”, dijo la obispa primada a más de 200 personas reunidas en el California Club del centro de Los Ángeles. “No va a resultar útil apoyar la desinversión o los boicots de Israel. Eso sólo redundará en castigar económicamente a los palestinos”.Ella también se pronunció a favor de “una solución de dos estados con un hogar digno para palestinos e israelíes” y de “un mayor compromiso, con personas de diferentes tradiciones comiendo juntas, escuchándose mutuamente sus historias”, y añadió que la reunión interreligiosa y multiétnica auspiciada por el obispo J. Jon Bruno de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles era un ejemplo de lo que es posible.Bruno estuvo de acuerdo. “La obispa Katharine y yo tenemos la misma opinión acerca de la paz en Jerusalén y en el tipo de arreglo que debe tener lugar allí, y lo hemos compartido con el obispo Suheil Dawani y él está de acuerdo con nosotros”, afirmó.Dawani también se dirigió a la reunión, la cual recaudó más de $50.000 para ministerios y peregrinaciones en la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén como parte de la relación de compañerismo de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles. Dawani hizo eco del llamado de Jefferts Schori a un compromiso más profundo mediante visitas y la edificación de relaciones con “las piedras vivas”, la gente del lugar que enfrenta privaciones económicas y otras dificultades semejantes.Debido a las preocupaciones acerca de “la comunidad cristiana (donde) estamos perdiendo a tantas familias y personas jóvenes que se van en busca de un futuro mejor fuera de nuestra tierra”, la educación y la formación de jóvenes es una importante prioridad, dijo el obispo.La Diócesis de Jerusalén patrocina unas 20 instituciones educativas para más de 6.400 niños árabes independientemente de su fe. Incluyen clases desde kindergarten hasta escuela secundaria y centros para niños con necesidades especiales, así como instituciones técnicas y vocacionales.Dawani se refirió especialmente a “Educar para la Esperanza”, una iniciativa fundada hace varios años por Mary Bruno, esposa de Jon Bruno, que ayuda a educar niños en Zababdeh, uno de los pocos pueblos predominantemente cristianos que quedan, localizado entre Nablus y Geniene, en Palestina. Los fondos, administrados a través de la iglesia episcopal de San Mateo en Zababdeh se destinan a ayudar a los niños a hacer sus vidas, a permanecer en su país, y ayudar a contener el permanente decremento de la población cristiana en Tierra Santa. Educar para la Esperanza ahora auspicia a unos 56 estudiantes cada año escolar, a un costo de aproximadamente $700 por niño.Del mismo modo, el Departamento para la Paz, la Reconciliación y el Diálogo Interreligioso, creado cuando Dawani fue entronizado como el 14º. Obispo [anglicano] de Jerusalén en 2007, supervisa a Kids4Peace, un programa que reúne a niños cristianos, judíos y musulmanes de Tierra Santa en campamentos de verano con sus homólogos de EE.UU. en procura de la edificación de la paz y de la formación, explicó Dawani.El departamento supervisa también otros empeños interreligiosos para la creación de un clima de paz, incluido un continuo énfasis en la capacitación de las mujeres. Una próxima conferencia interreligiosa de mujeres ampliará estos esfuerzos al congregar a mujeres para la oración, el diálogo y la capacitación para el liderazgo.Dawani elogió también las contribuciones de los Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén, que ofrece apoyo a muchos ministerios y proyectos.Al enfatizar la necesidad de que Jerusalén “permanezca abierta para todos”, él añadió: “Necesitamos vuestro apoyo para laborar por la paz y por la justicia.“Jerusalén es conocida como la ciudad de Dios, el hogar de las tres fes abrahámicas. Es una ciudad bella, un lugar extraordinario. Debe permanecer abierta para todos. Jerusalén es para la unidad y no para la división. Jerusalén es para todos”, dijo en medio de un aplauso.Alentando las visitas a la Tierra Santa afirmó: “Es muy importante para nuestro pueblo que ustedes vayan y nos visiten”, añadiendo que tales visitas ofrecen esperanza y que la diócesis valora sus relaciones de compañerismo con otras diócesis a través de la Iglesia.“Nuestro corazones siempre les dan la bienvenida. Por favor, vengan y visítenos”, dijo.La diócesis comprende a 6.000 anglicanos en 27 parroquias esparcidas a través de Jordania, Palestina, Israel, Siria y Líbano, y más de 30 escuelas e instituciones sanitarias, con una población escolar de 6.400 estudiantes, una nómina de alrededor de 1.500 empleados y mantiene aproximadamente 200 camas de hospital.Al comienzo del almuerzo, el rabino Joshua Levine Grater, del Templo y Centro Judío de Pasadena, y Shakeel Syed, director ejecutivo del Consejo Islámico Shura del Sur de California, ofrecieron sus oraciones.Bruno le obsequió a Dawani y a Jefferts Schori sendas esferas de vidrio con los símbolos de las tres fes abrahámicas, la estrella de David, la medialuna musulmana y la cruz de Manos Sanadoras [Hands in Healing cross] -una cruz hecha de manos de todos los colores que se tienden para estrecharse unas a otras, la representación icónica de su ministerio como obispo de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles.Las esferas fueron develadas durante el servicio interreligioso “Una luz, una fe, una paz” que Bruno organizó para conmemorar el décimo aniversario de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001. Cientos de cristianos, musulmanes y judíos, además de líderes cívicos, asistieron al evento en las gradas del Palacio Municipal de Los Ángeles el 10 de septiembre de 2011. Un representante de cada congregación, sinagoga y templo sirvió como “portador de la luz” para llevar un globo a su casa de culto como un recordatorio de la esperanza y de la necesidad de laborar por la paz.“Tiene una vela dentro y le pido que cuando se sienta desanimado encienda la vela y ruegue por la paz de Jerusalén”, le dijo Bruno a Dawani.Centros de mesa con olivos fueron los presentes de los Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén y se los ofrecieron a cualquiera que los quisiera, siempre que los plantaran en el jardín de una iglesia o de una escuela como un símbolo de paz, le dijo Bruno a la concurrencia.Jefferts Schori describió una visita a Tierra Santa a invitación de Dawani hace varios años, exactamente antes de la Pascua [cristiana y judía], ocasión en que ella encontró sufrimiento y dolor, pero también la esperanza de una nueva vida en la colaboración interreligiosa en Cisjordania y Gaza.“Conocimos a los fieles de varias tradiciones que, a pesar de su experiencia diaria y probablemente debido a ella, estaban dedicados a una vida llena de esperanza, tendiendo puentes, buscando el entendimiento, hallando medios de trabajar juntos”, dijo ella.“Vimos esperanza y curación para todos en el hospital árabe de Al Ahlí” una institución de la diócesis de Jerusalén.“Dondequiera que fuimos nos encontramos a comunidades de cristianos y musulmanes trabajando juntos. Nos reunimos con líderes de las tres tradiciones de fe abrahámicas que laboran juntos por la paz. Nos reunimos con otras personas, incluidos los representantes de esta diócesis [Los Ángeles] que fueron a la tierra del Bendito para aprender y escuchar y crear relaciones.“La peregrinación forma a los pacificadores que se muestran solidarios con los que sufren”, dijo ella.Ella añadió que la Diócesis de Jerusalén “es una líder profundamente fiel de la edificación de la paz, con frecuencia de una persona y de un encuentro por vez, e instó a los episcopales a apoyar los ministerios de la diócesis.“Ellos continúan buscando compañeros de la solidaridad y el testimonio como las personas que se reúnen en este salón. Siguen buscando apoyo para su labor de educar y formar a nuevos líderes de diferentes fes para ser pacificadores. Crean ministerios de atención médica y de sanación para servir a personas de todas las fes. Hacen progresar el diálogo interreligioso, edifican la solidaridad y [tienden] puentes de entendimiento. Están creando una infraestructura social y económica en los territorios palestinos. Están ayudando a construir una sociedad de paz con justicia para todos, la ciudad del salam y del shalom”.Pero, agregó, no hay ningún rápido arreglo en el conflicto del Oriente Medio.En última instancia, la paz conllevará “una dedicación continua”, dijo la obispa primada. “Conlleva vivir de la esperanza que emana de lo hondo. De esa esperanza profunda y abrasadora que nace de rechazar el miedo. ¿Qué podemos hacer aquí?“Podemos instar a nuestros legisladores y al gobierno a que aliente el diálogo entre los líderes israelíes y palestinos. Podemos instarles a que se abstengan de privar de fondos a las iniciativas esperanzadoras. Podemos instar a Israel a que congele la actividad de los asentamientos. Podemos instar a la Autoridad Palestina a que reconozca el derecho de Israel a existir.

This collective house is located in Kagurazaka area where is one of the most popular area in Tokyo still keeping Japanese traditional atmosphere. This atmosphere is gradually destroyed day by day. To make positive approach to this problem, we thought to extend the atmosphere into this architecture. We analyzed the element of this atmosphere and edited them in this architecture.

In this area, ups and downs are big. We can find a lot of green on the upper and lower sides. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSmall passes also make a strong character. They are sometimes cranked and we can’t get a view straightly. So we are very stirred our imagination and imagine the next scene. We call a phenomenon of the space like this “OKU” in Japanese. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaBesides these elements we picked up colors, materials, lights and so on. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaAnd we translated them into the vocabulary of contemporary architecture. As to green, plants are placed 3 dimensionally not only on the ground but also upper und underground floors. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe corridors on the 2nd and 3rd floor are cranked like small passes in this area and after turning the corner with feeling of OKU we find green. And we also applied a concept of OKU to the interior. The openings were made between the walls and ceilings. We can feel the atmosphere of the next space over the wall.

Indiana Farm Leaders Attend Farm Progress Show

first_img The first day of the 2019 Farm Progress show in Decatur, IL opened under sunny skies and mild temperatures.An overnight rain, however, muddied the parking areas and canceled the field demonstrations for the first day.Crowds were light as economic concerns kept many growers at home. Indiana Lt. Governor Crouch was not one to say home but walked the show on Tuesday and visit many exhibits of Indiana companies.This was Crouch’s third Farm Progress Show and she told HAT she is continually impressed with the advancements in technology on display at the show.She noted that almost all of this new technology is dependent on high speed broadband coverage and that is why it is vital to improve coverage in Indiana.“A Purdue report estimates that about 500,000 Hoosiers that were in internet darkness. If all those Hoosiers were connected it would mean $1 billion to our state’s economy,” said Crouch.She added Governor Holcomb’s efforts to improve broad and coverage will help Indiana’s agricultures industry thrive and survive and improve the lives of rural farm families.Another issue vital to the growth of Indiana, according to o that Crouch, is passage of the USMCA trade agreement by Congress, “We need to get Congress to pass USMCA so the U.S. and work with Canada and Mexico to feed not only our own country but the rest of the world.”She said Indiana was the first state to have a trade mission visit Mexico after they signed the agreement, “U.S. farmers need the same opportunity.”Crouch will be able to press her case for USMCA when she meets later this week with Indiana Congressional members as well as USDA Under Secretary of Trade Ted McKinney who will be visiting South Bend and Lafayette.ISDA Director Bruce Kettler is schedule to visit the Farm Progress Show on Wednesday. It is expected he will have the chance to visit with Ag Secretary sunny Perdue who will attend the show.
