Jabran Khan | Wednesday, 22nd July, 2020 | More on: WTB The Covid-19 pandemic has affected all of us in a way we probably never thought would or could happen. That’s very true for investors. But when a market crash occurs, there are opportunities to be had.  Whitbread (LSE:WTB) is the UK’s largest operator of hotels and restaurants. Its brands include Premier Inn, Brewers Fayre and Beefeater. I believe Whitbread could be a steal at its current bargain price.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…Market crash opportunityHotels and restaurants suffered massively when the government imposed a lockdown between March and June. The easing of restrictions and reopening of hotels and restaurants will have been welcomed by patrons and business owners alike.Whitbread’s share price has decreased by over 40% year to date due to the market crash. Its current per-share price is hovering near 2,300p. But this is better than its rock bottom 1,808p back at the height of the crisis in March. Things are looking up, with many of its hotels and restaurants now reopened and the remainder expected to reopen during this month and next. Its current price-to-earnings ratio sits at just over 17.Trading update and past performanceA Q1 trading update was released in early July. Whitbread confirmed that over 270 UK hotels and 24 hotels were open at that time. It took the lockdown as an opportunity to refurbish 13 new hotels and rebrand them as Premier Inn in Germany. It now has all 19 operational hotels open in Germany. Whitbread is attempting to replicate its UK success with Premier Inn on the continent, which could prove key in its future growth plans.Naturally sales figures were affected by the mass closures of its estate. But in June, Whitbread successfully completed a £1bn rights issue to maintain financial flexibility, which has strengthened its balance sheet. During the market crash, other companies have adopted similar strategies, which is understandable in unprecedented times, so this isn’t a concern for me.Back in May, Whitbread announced its latest full-year results. Despite seeing lower profit than the previous year, it still recorded over £350m worth of profit. An increase in revenue was a positive takeaway despite the report consistently pointing towards weak market conditions.My verdictWhat draws me to Whitbread is the fact that it possesses such a strong brand in Premier Inn. It also possesses the financial might to weather the storm from the market crash and continue to invest and grow Premier Inn, which is its primary business. As I mentioned earlier, the German expansion excites me, but it is not ignoring the UK market and continues to plan for further locations domestically.Whitbread utilised government support during the market crash, which I think was shrewd. Staff were placed on furlough where needed and the grace of business rates for a year saved it £120m. I feel that such an established business, with what I class as a top tier brand at the forefront of its offering, is a bargain at the current price. I foresee a rise in its share price as I believe market conditions will normalise over the coming months and next year. Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Jabran Khanlast_img read more

West Burn Lane is a private development of 14 housing units in the centre of St Andrews. It occupies a narrow plot, delineated by the medieval stone rigg walls that extend perpendicular to the main streets and consists of 6 town houses and 8 flats organised around a series of private and public court yards. We responded to the the following characteristics of the surrounding streetscape in the development of the project:-The linear pattern of Rigg plots that run perpendicular to the main streets-The distribution of small free standing buildings in amongst the gardens of the Rigg plots with clear space between, through which you can see daylight and vegetation.-The rhythm of recesses and doorways along the narrow lanes that reflect the slow process of development of the -Rigg plots over centuries.-The palette of natural materials that exists in the townSave this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirThe site is located within the St Andrews conservation area and the palette of materials was chosen with both the immediate context and the longevity of the scheme in mind. Fife District Council were very concerned about the use of ‘contemporary’ materials like brick within a Medieval, Georgian and Victorian context so we produced a number of sample panels prior to construction, testing different stone brick and mortar combinations, ultimately selecting Petersen D71 bricks for the upper storeys. Tooled sandstone has been used at the base in reference to the plot delineation of the tall rigg walls and the tones of the Petersen bricks above this datum complement that of the sandstone.Save this picture!Level 1 PlanDetailed Blurb:West Burn Lane is located in a conservation area in the historic centre of St Andrews and consists of 6no four bedroom houses and 8no two & three bedroom apartments. The buildings are organised as discrete volumes which address a series of public and private urban courtyards. They mediate between the tight-knit medieval urban grain and the scale of the surrounding university buildings and church hall, increasing in scale towards the south.Save this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirTaking cues from the historic rigg pattern of St Andrews, the buildings are tiered as the move down the lane; clear pends are maintained between which give sight to the sky and vegetation beyond and pick up the rhythm of doorways and thresholds in the historic stone walls of the Riggs. By alternating between two main house types within the narrow confines of the lane, the broad-fronted but narrow-depth and the narrow-fronted but deep plan, we were able to provide secluded private garden spaces between dwellings that have aspect to the south-east.Save this picture!SectionAt the southern end of the site where the lane opens up there is a larger scale building in keeping with the grander and more spacious context, where the apartments take advantage of the panoramic views to the south. Located between these elements are two maisonette blocks. These are set back to create a new piece of public realm around a mature tree, a courtyard offering amenity space and off-street parking but with enough room to the rear to allow for small courtyard gardens.Save this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirThere are seven house types being proposed within these three broad typologies. From north to south these are:Town House Type 1: Three storey, four-bedroom, narrow street-fronted and deep plan townhouse with a dedicated single-car garage and single car port at grade, a rear garden to the east and a roof terrace on the third floor.Save this picture!PlansTown House Type 2: Three storey, four-bedroom, wide street-fronted and narrow depth townhouse with a dedicated 2-car garage at grade and a rear garden to the east.Save this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirMaisonettes: Three storey building with a one-bedroom maisonette at Level 0 & 1 with private garden to rear and one two bedroom upper maisonette at Level 1 & 2 with a private terrace.Save this picture!Maisonette Lower BApartments: Four storey apartment building consisting of a unit per storey. At Level 0 there is a two-bed apartment with it’s own separate entrance, accessed from Queen’s Terrace, via a small private garden facing south.

Workers to sexist bosses: HANDS OFF!

first_imgWe have heard from Donald Trump’s own mouth his disgusting, unrelenting, unrepentant commitment to hating, degrading and sexually abusing women. It could be the last straw for his presidential campaign.Now, on to the other anti-woman, anti-worker bosses!That’s what Fight for $15 is saying and doing in a campaign against sexual harassment that began on Oct. 5 against McDonald’s, the fast food chain employing 1.9 million low-wage workers worldwide. Fight for $15 is best known for organizing to raise the minimum wage and secure a union for low-wage workers.Fast food workers are notoriously underpaid and overworked. Like a growing preponderance of U.S. workers, they are mostly young, largely women and people of color, often LGBTQ, perhaps with a disability, with fewer resources to fall back on if they lose their jobs. That makes them especially vulnerable to abuse of all kinds, including sexual harassment and rape.Research shows that fast food workers are 60 percent more likely to be sexually harassed than workers elsewhere. And 42 percent of them have had to endure that harassment for fear they’d lose their jobs if they fought back.Now these workers are saying: No more!Fifteen McDonald’s workers, under the banner of #Fightfor15, have filed charges against the burger chain through the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. They assert they were subjected to “inappropriate — and illegal — sexual contact, innuendo and propositions” while working for the corporation.Those abstract words mask the horrifying stories flooding in, overwhelmingly from female workers, about managers who offered them money for sex or ignored their pleas when male co-workers showed them photos of their genitals. Needless to say, appealing to the “parent” corporation yielded no help.The struggle against sexual harassment and rape began millennia ago, when patriarchy arose at the same time as classes, and women and gender-nonconforming people were subjected to male ruling class privilege. In the U.S., sexual terror — and the fightback against it — has been a fact of working women’s lives, from enslaved African women to domestic workers, from farmhouse to assembly line, in blue collar, pink collar and white collar work, from South, North, East to West.It took a campaign as recently as the 1960s by women’s liberation and civil rights activists to get sexual coercion at a job recognized as “illegal.” That enabled workers to go to the federal EEOC for some protection.Now a new front of struggle has opened up at actual workplaces, as McDonald’s fast food workers in 30 cities picketed against sexual harassment at their job sites on Oct. 6.The class struggle is rapidly accelerating with the intertwining of working-class organizing, LGBTQ leadership, women’s liberation issues and the fight to make Black and Brown lives matter.Bosses, you are being served notice: No more grabbing. No more rape or sexual coercion. No more racism. No more LGBT-phobia. No more anti-people-with-disabilities.We mean it: We’re going to take your hands off our bodies and our lives!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Recent range expansions in non-native predatory beetles on sub-Antarctic South Georgia

first_imgThe human-assisted establishment of two non-native predatory carabid beetles (Merizodus soledadinus (Guerin-M,n,ville), Trechisibus antarcticus (Dejean)) on the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia occurred 30-50 years ago, but the distribution of these species has never been the subject of regular monitoring, and was last assessed in the mid-1990s. Based on opportunistic collection records and directed field survey activities on South Georgia over four summer seasons between 2002/3 and 2008/9, we describe recent and important range expansions in both species on the island. The new distributional ranges of both species are highly suggestive of a continuing inadvertent human role in transferring them across the obstructions presented by tidewater glaciers or higher-altitude mountain passes. Both species now have the potential to spread unchecked by any other geographical obstructions across a large section of the north-east coast of the island and are likely to have considerable negative impacts on the elements of the native (including endemic) terrestrial invertebrate faunalast_img read more

Students ‘infuriated’ over VC’s access event

first_img“I strongly disagree with the opinion of the Vice-Chancellor that the onus of continuing access should be entirely on the Colleges.“I believe that such a mindset would eventually bring colleges who are currently leading access, such as Mansfield, to reconsider their priorities.“The University is not giving Colleges a substantial incentive to improve access – instead the Vice Chancellor seems to believe that this would come about through the good faith of Colleges alone.“I hope that she would reconsider this position and work to encourage wider diversity across Oxford.“I would further like to note that access has always been a priority at Mansfield and will continue to be at the heart of our ethos.”In a post on the Mansfield’s JCR noticeboard, Lysyakova stated her intention to write a letter on behalf of the JCR and to lobby other JCR presidents to do the same.Third-year Mansfield student Sara Harb, who attended the meeting, said that she felt a “disconnect” between the student-led access schemes and those of the University, which “the VC has to take responsibility for”. She told Cherwell: “It isn’t good enough for her to effectively accept that student experience at Oxford is simply a matter of a college lottery.“She wants us to address the wider societal inequalities, while there are clearly some massive inequalities between colleges, which is something she is responsible for and can feasibly address.”At Tuesday’s meeting, Richardson also agreed with suggestions that the University should start to pressure the government to improve access provision earlier in the education system, claiming that early education is “central to Oxbridge access”.Richardson stated her continued support for the current main undergraduate access programme, UNIQ, which brings 850 state school students to Oxford every summer. The capacity of UNIQ is expected to increase by 500 places in the coming years.At the meeting, Richardson reportedly told the audience that the poorest Oxford colleges continue to provide more educational funding than the vast majority of UK universities. Oxford University Vice-Chancellor Louise Richardson was grilled over the University’s access schemes and policies at a student Q&A panel on Tuesday, with concerns being raised over her shifting of responsibility towards the colleges and away from the central administration.During the student-organised “access and diversity brainstorming event” held at the Oxford Martin School, Richardson described access as “one of the biggest challenges the University faces”.Richardson also noted that since colleges independently select the students admitted, they are responsible for the resources they provide for their students.However, some students expressed disappointment with the Vice-Chancellor’s comments.Mansfield JCR President Daria Lysyakova noted that Richardson’s view on issues of access was one that “[she does] not share”.Lysyakova said in a statement that “as the exemplary college for access, [Mansfield] needs to make [their] voice heard louder”.Currently, Mansfield admits the highest percentage of state-school students out of all of the University’s colleges and PPHs.Lysyakova told Cherwell: “Whilst I understand that the Vice Chancellor does not have the authority to tell colleges how to run their business, as each college is a charity independent from the University, what the Vice-Chancellor does have, in light of her position, is the necessary status and influences to effectively encourage colleges to priorities access and allocate their resources in ways which would best aid students in need.center_img Event organiser Ben Fernando told Cherwell that he believed the event went “very well” and was pleased with the variety of audience members.He added: “The point was to come to constructive solutions, so firstly I hope the students have a bit of a better idea of what’s being done on the University side, and vice versa.“In terms of making concrete progress, obviously we’ll have to see what’s acted upon, but as I understand it some of the disability campaigners and First-Gen reps have already scheduled further discussions with the University leadership as a result of the meeting, so that’s a good start.“I think this was a pretty effective way to discuss the issues, and I hope we’ll be able to do similar things again in the future.”The University was contacted for comment.last_img read more
