Shares in Royal Mail (LSE:RMG) fell heavily yet again this morning as the company released its latest set of full-year results to the market and news that it would be drastically reducing its workforce. Does today’s cost-cutting measure mean the shares are now a canny contrarian play? Here’s my take.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…Were Royal Mail’s numbers that bad?There certainly weren’t great. While revenue came in at £10.84bn over the 12 months to 29 March (up 3.8% from last year), adjusted operating profit was 13.6% lower (£325m). Broken down, it’s the UK Parcels, International and Letters division (UKPIL) that continues to be a drag. Revenue here grew 1.6% to £7.72bn but adjusted operating profit fell a worrying 41.2% to £117m.The vast majority of the remaining revenue was achieved via the company’s Europe-focused subsidiary (GLS), where adjusted operating profit rose 17.5% to £208m. It doesn’t look like things will get better soon either. Over the first two months of the new financial year, year-on-year revenue is down £29m at UKPIL. Moreover, total costs are already up £80 due to overtime, staff absences and social distancing measures.Clearly, the company needs to take action and that’s what it’s done.Job cutsCommenting on today’s numbers, interim Executive Chair Keith Williams reflected that the UK business had “not adapted quickly enough” to people sending a greater number of parcels and fewer letters. The pandemic “has accelerated those trends,” Mr Williams said, “presenting additional challenges”. As such, the company has announced that it’s looking to cut 2,000 management roles — roughly a fifth of its management total. It’s also reducing capital expenditure by around £300m over the next two years.Bargain buy?Of course, there comes a point when even the most hated stocks have the potential to make money for brave investors if they’re cheap enough. Based on the company’s own outlook, however, I’d continue to give Royal Mail a wide berth.In spite of the plan announced today, the company stated that the coronavirus pandemic means its future is “challenging and volatile”. UKPIL is expected to be “materially loss-making in 2020” and profits at GLS “may potentially be reduced”.Assuming coronavirus-related restrictions lift after June and UK GDP falls by ‘only’ 10%, year-on-year revenue is expected to fall by between £200m and £250m. Costs from the virus will reach £140m with a further £110m hit predicted from higher parcel volumes.Should things turn out a lot worse than this (say, GDP declines by 15%), like-for-like revenue would likely fall by between £500m and £600m. Costs would be even higher.Whichever scenario plays out, this is pretty tough reading for its owners, even if some of this is already reflected in the share price.Don’t expect dividendsAside from the above, would-be investors need to be aware that there will be no dividends paid in the new (current) financial year. Personally, the idea that these will return in FY22 strikes me as optimistic. It’s also worth mentioning that the company is the fifth most shorted stock as I type, according to shorttracker.co.uk. Put simply, this means a lot of market participants are betting that the shares will continue to fall in value.All told, I think there are far better options right now than Royal Mail, particularly for income hunters. The road ahead will be long and hard. Don’t expect the shares to deliver any time soon.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Jeff Daniels, Professor of Counseling, West Virginia University and first published on theconversation.comWhile President Donald Trump has not shied away from offering suggestions on how to prevent school shootings – including one controversial idea to arm teachers – what often gets overlooked in the conversation is research on the subject that has already been done.This research includes one major study of school shootings conducted in part by the very agency charged with protecting the president of the United States himself – the U.S. Secret Service.Has this research been ignored or just forgotten? I raise the question as one who has studied averted school shootings and the news coverage that followed.Two months after the Columbine tragedy in 1999, experts from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Secret Service collaborated to study the “school shooter” phenomenon. They published the study on their findings in 2002. The study focused on examining the thinking, planning and other behaviors of students who carried out school attacks. Particular attention was given to identifying pre-attack behaviors and communications that might be detectable – or “knowable” – and could help prevent future attacks.The team studied 37 school shootings involving 41 attackers that took place from December 1974 through May 2000. Data included investigative, school, court and mental health records. In addition, 10 school shooters were interviewed to gain their perspectives from “conceptualization to execution” of the attacks. A series of findings emerged. In light of the Florida school shooting massacre and the fact that the alleged shooter drew a lot of attention prior to carrying out the shooting, those findings bear repeating here.“Incidents of targeted violence at school rarely were sudden, impulsive acts.” Most attackers progressed through a process that started with an idea, to a plan, to accessing weapons and ending with the attack. If noticed, this process may be interrupted at any time before the attack.“Prior to most incidents, other people knew about the attacker’s idea and/or plan to attack.” The implication is that schools must develop a culture that promotes student sharing of concerns about others. In studying schools that averted a shooting, I and other researchers found that a key factor was establishing trusting relationships with students. We also found that the notion of “snitching” needed to be reframed to being helpful. Unfortunately, it seems that in the case of the Parkland shooting, multiple people did come forward with concerns. The alleged shooter was on several different radars, but unless he was posing an imminent danger to himself or others, he couldn’t be jailed or forced to receive psychological services. It, therefore, becomes an issue of individual versus collective rights. Unless we are ready as a society to lock people up for disturbing communications, there will be some individuals who will fall through the proverbial cracks.Along similar lines, most attackers “engaged in some behavior prior to the incident that caused others concern or indicated a need for help.” Some of these behaviors included talking about bringing a gun to school, or warning friends to avoid a certain area of the school on a given day. The Parkland shooter had a history of violent and aggressive behavior, including Instagram posts about becoming a “professional school shooter.”While most attackers – 96 percent – were male, the report found that there “is no accurate or useful ‘profile’ of students who engaged in targeted school violence.” Three-quarters of the attackers were white; one-quarter of the attackers came from other racial and ethnic backgrounds, including African-American (12 percent), Hispanic (5 percent), Native Alaskan (2 percent), Native American (2 percent) and Asian (2 percent). Most came from intact families, were doing well in school and were not loners, according to the report.“Most attackers had difficulty coping with significant losses or personal failures. Moreover, many had considered or attempted suicide.” Knowing the students and what they are dealing with in their lives, such as parental divorce, ending a relationship or other failures is important for getting help in a timely manner. The Parkland shooter’s adoptive mother died of pneumonia just three months prior to his deadly attack. And at age 5, he also witnessed his father die of a heart attack.“Many attackers felt bullied, persecuted or injured by others prior to the attack.”Almost two-thirds reported being targeted by others prior to the attack, with some claiming to have withstood severe bullying for a long time. There is evidence that Nikolas Cruz was often mocked for his odd behavior.Following the publication of the Secret Service study on school shootings, my research on averted school shootings found that schools that prevented a shooting had done some of the things recommended by the Secret Service.The case in Florida shows that many of these recommendations were followed and people spoke up when they saw something wrong. The issue is whether authorities need more power to intervene once they have been made aware of a potential threat, or whether they just need to do a better job with the power they already have.

I expect I could be wrong? Just saying. Chaz Reply charles towne The article isn’t political. It’s more or less a trip back to simpler times for me.

Going back to when I was a kid, I’ve always seen this time of the sporting year as one of my favorites. For starters, I played a lot of organized basketball and this was around the time that the season would begin. Through the week there would be practice and during the weekend we would have our game. The rest of my time when I wasn’t in school or outside with my friends was spent with a basketball or watching anything I could on TV about it.My love for the college game came from hanging out where my mother worked at the University of Dayton. On some days my father would pick me up from school and drop me off at my mother’s work. I would walk around campus and sometimes would see some of the players. For me, these players were celebrities due to the fact that I would see them on TV or when we went to the games. Speaking of going to the games, those were some of the most fun experiences of my childhood. My mom, having worked at the university for quite some time, had the seniority to get decent seats when it came to basketball tickets for the faculty and staff. We would arrive at the arena, grab a bite and a drink from the concession stand and then take our seats. The place was almost always packed with a ruckus crowd that creates an energy that can’t be explained.When the Flyers are winning, you can’t hear yourself think and when they’re behind, the whole building is cheering for them to get back into the game. A few minutes before half-time, we would head down to the restrooms and concession stand again. I would then take some time after the second half started to roam the arena, stopping at different points to watch the game. The electricity of the crowd noise would radiate through the entire place and at the end of the game, win or lose, I was always tired and hoarse from yelling and cheering.While Dayton is not considered a powerhouse in college basketball, there have been some very good teams that have come out of the program including three elite eight appearances, and a runner-up finish in 1967. While I wasn’t around for the latter, I did get to witness a 1984 team that did very well in the NCAA tournament before losing to Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas. Dayton had another team make the final eight in 2014 and while it was hard keeping up with the regular season games living down here, watching the tournament games and seeing how far the team got was a thrill. Watching those games took me back to my childhood watching the team and cheering with all I had for them.Just thinking about those experiences brings a smile to my face and with pre-season games underway, I find myself excited about the madness about to start. For me, that’s not just something that happens in March. It’s a madness that starts in November. November 4, 2018 at 11:14 am

The desire for more space and proximity to nature became reality, when our clients discovered a very narrow, steep property in Gablitz, at the outskirts of Vienna. Their wish was to move the qualities of their typical Viennese 19th-century apartment from the city to the countryside. The street-side access is at the top of the site. The 3-storey building was integrated into the slope in a resource-saving manner without large terrain changes and expensive basement areas. The family house sits on a concrete plinth, overlooking the surrounding woods.Save this picture!© Ditz FejerIts monolithic volume is emphasized by using a single material covering ist walls and the roof. Entrances, terraces, and garden areas were designed as extensions of the living areas following the topological rules of the site and providing a wide range of different outdoor spaces. The special façade cladding uses typical Austrian “Klinker“ brick and classic clay roof tiles. These two traditional building materials were combined to create a modern, homogeneous outer skin of the house.Save this picture!© Ditz FejerAll windows on the main living floor provide a direct connection to the outside areas, maximizing the living space during the warm season. Skylights illuminate the bedrooms and also bring extra light down to the living area. The traditional Viennese “Gründerzeit“ apartment with bright rooms with high ceilings and the flexible floorplan was an inspiration for the spatial arrangement and material concept of the house.Save this picture!© Ditz FejerSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Ditz FejerDouble height living room forms the heart of the house. It can be easily separated from the kitchen area by sliding doors. A sculptural staircase connects the living area with bedrooms on the top floor and the garden room with a pool on the bottom floor. The layout of the house allows it to adapt to the future needs of the five-member family. Sustainable yet traditional materials like herringbone parquets, stone floorings, and oiled wood surfaces were used in the interior.Save this picture!© Ditz FejerProject gallerySee allShow lessPorta Amarela House / Flávia Menezes Arquitetura e InterioresSelected ProjectsSauna Smådalarö / Metropolis ArkitekterSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Ditz Fejer+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share Brick All Over House / WORK SPACE Architekten + Pf architekten 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959387/brick-all-over-house-work-space-architekten-plus-pf-architekten Clipboard Year: Photographs CopyAbout this officePf architektenOfficeFollowWORK SPACE ArchitektenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookGablitzAustriaPublished on April 01, 2021Cite: “Brick All Over House / WORK SPACE Architekten + Pf architekten” 01 Apr 2021.
