I have never been a fan of the Cash ISA. The rate of inflation is higher than the rate of interest, which means our hard earned cash is slowly eroding in value every single year. If I put my money in a Cash ISA and I can buy less with it in a year, then that doesn’t seem like a very good deal to me. Cash ISAs deliver negative real returns! I have always been involved in the stock market, because of the proven value the stock market builds over time. I haven’t always made the correct calls – but I’ve learned from my mistakes over the years. 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…That’s why this year, I’ll be betting my money on the GAN (LSE: GAN) share price instead. Why would I buy shares in GAN? GAN is set to benefit hugely from the legalisation of US sports betting in 2018. Although progress has been slow, so far 16 out of 50 US states have legalised sports betting. GAN provides a technology stack for bigger companies that have the reach and clients. GAN isn’t a gambling company, but creates the technology for gambling companies to use. As more and more US states legalise sports betting, the available market for these gambling companies grows, as does the market for GAN. GAN is profitable and growingThe company grew revenue 145% to £11.3m from £4.6 in its first-half results, and reported a profit after tax of £0.7m. Profit is not everything though; cash flow is what matters. The business generated just over £3m in operational cash flow.This is important because it means the company is not reliant on external funding. GAN produces enough cash by itself to invest in growing the business and building its cash pile. Buying shares in a stock that isn’t capable of doing this is a bet on the company’s cash balance lasting until they can become profitable. Strong management ownership At least 25% of the company is owned by the Smurfit family, who also own Smurfit Kappa Group. With such a large interest in the company’s success, one can assume that chief executive Dermot Smurfit is working hard to achieve it. When I invest in a company, I always like to see three things: a growing market, profit and cash flow, and directors having skin in the game.When directors see their own personal wealth tied to the share price, they are much more likely to act in the best interests of the company, instead of using the company for their own personal gain at the expense of shareholders. It aligns the interests, and 25% is a healthy amount. I believe that (so long as the investment case does not change) we could see further upside in GAN’s share price over the coming years.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

As the title suggests, following the client´s requirements, we designed a permanent house which is to be lived in all year round. For this reason, when it came to design, we paid attention not only to the interior spaces´ thermal insulation for extreme climate, but also took care that the private spaces maintain privacy and peacefulness. We looked for warm spaces, well illuminated and protected from the wind and/or the sea breeze during the winter season but without losing track of the idea of spacious social spaces, open, airy and with a direct spatial relation between the interior and the exterior. Save this picture!Courtesy of Vértice ArquitectosAs for the line of sight (beach regulations), you may notice how the roofed area per floor is inversely proportional to the level in which it is located. This means that the higher it is (better sights) the less area there is roofed.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section“The house is thought of as an exposed concrete block, with certain cuts and drillings, which appears step by step, in the form of railway platforms in the ground’s topography, integrating itself into the landscape.”Save this picture!Courtesy of Vértice ArquitectosThermal insulation and control of sunlight exposure is taken into account in the diverse levels and spaces in the interior, by the means of architectonic resources such as lattice, eaves, green roofs, suspended floors and ceilings, flower planters and the swimming pool itself, making use of.Save this picture!Courtesy of Vértice ArquitectosThe house is developed in four floors in order to include the entire program (roofed area 340.00 m2) in the reduced land area (semi-basement + 3 stories), all of them related with each other through the staircase, which generates sights and diverse sensations along their passage as well as the different levels, and connecting the superior pier, the access pier with the intermediate pier, the exit and or access to the beach.It is for this reason that the access through the superior pier is located on the third floor where we find the stairs to the second floor and to the parking.Save this picture!Courtesy of Vértice ArquitectosThe entrance hall, which gives access from the outside to the inside, is located in the second floor which has privileged sights but a reduced roofed area, along with the stairs which lead to the first floor and the main bedroom. This has a spacious bathroom and a walk in closet, as well as a garden at a different level (living´s room roof thermal insulation) in the form of a terrace which enables us to have best sights of the coasts.Save this picture!First Floor PlanIn the first floor, at 1.5 m above the intermediate pier, with a very good sight and needing a greater roofed area, we can find the house´s social spaces: the living, the dining room, kitchen, bar, terrace with access to the intermediate pier, swimming pool, BBQ area; all of them with views to the sea. This level also has a toilet with views and stairs to the semi-basement.Save this picture!Courtesy of Vértice ArquitectosFinally the semi-basement level, located at 1.40 m, with the largest roofed area per level, is where the house´s private area is located. This is articulated trough a big and confortable living room with zenithal lighting from the terrace. A round the living we find three bedrooms, each with its bathroom, a room for surfboards and a living room which gives access to the beach and in the rear the whole service area. A great interior courtyard is generated in order to solve this level´s illumination and air circulation. The house is set back 3 m from the intermediate pier and a pair of secondary interior pipelines in order to achieve best illumination and ventilation possible at the most critic level.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Tamedia New Office Building / Shigeru Ban ArchitectsVideosThe Role of the Architectural Discourse in the ‘New Media Age’Architecture News Share Houses 2013 Vivienda H-22 / Vértice Arquitectos Year:  “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Vivienda H-22 / Vértice ArquitectosSave this projectSaveVivienda H-22 / Vértice Arquitectos CopyHouses•Punta Hermosa, Peru Year:  “COPY” Projects Peru Area:  337 m² Area:  337 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Architects: Vertice Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Save this picture!Courtesy of Vértice Arquitectos+ 12 Share CopyAbout this officeVertice ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPunta HermosaHousesPeruPublished on June 10, 2014Cite: “Vivienda H-22 / Vértice Arquitectos” 10 Jun 2014.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoText description provided by the architects. Wohnen ohne Auto (literally “Living without a car”) is a co-housing project, developed in a process of participatory design with a community of future residents. The project features a series of strategies which aim is to minimize the superfluous, to estabilish a collective attitude towards sharing and to facilitate in general a more sustainable behaviour.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezThe building is located in the former airport area of Munich-Riem and is part of the fourth and last construction phase of its reconversion. Its core point lies in the voluntary renouncement of car ownership by all the inhabitants, which is reflected in an environmentally sustainable planning approach.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezThe overall design is developed with great attention to life quality, atmospheric materials and lighting conditions, besides sustainability, low mantainance and social inclusion principles. Through the main focus on spatial optimization and reduction of private areas in favour of shared spaces, Wohnen one Auto inverts the trend of increasing floorspace, buildng costs and energy consumed per person. The common areas are no longer limited to the distributive spaces, but they are extended to storages, a hobby room, a large rooftop terrace and even a small guest apartment. Common spaces do not only allow for a reduction of the resources needed but also foster social interaction through the creation of shared experiences.Save this picture!DiagramWithin the flats, narrowing down to the very minimum some functional rooms, allows to wider up the living areas. It is in the contrast between the spaces’ size that the perception of inhabiting very small flats is completely nullified. The possibility the owners have to directly influence the design choices, not only in their private apartments, but in the whole building, enables them to identify themselves entirely with their new home and create a solid community spirit. This collective awareness is mirrored also in some small craft interventions that the residents carried out themselves, both in their private houses and in the common areas.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezWohnen ohne Auto is an example of the key role of architectural design in a general rethinking of our attitude to consumption of resources, collective responsibility and social conscience.Save this picture!Plan 02Together with three other new buildings, the project forms a rectangular city block around an inner courtyard, a semi-private space. The façades on the perimeter of the complex are kept plain and regular to aid the readability of the four new buildings as parts of a whole. On the inside of the block however, skewed bow-windows and balconies fragment the façade catching the southern light and lending longer views, even to the centrally placed flats.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezThe building is then rooted into its context by an axis leading from the entrance of the city block, across the courtyard, through the glass doors and the stairwell and on into a new park on the east side.Save this picture!© Brigida GonzálezProject gallerySee allShow lessLes Faiseurs / catherinecatherineSelected ProjectsFoster + Partners Plan Automotive Museum on Disused Airfield in Rural EnglandArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Oslostraße 4, 81829 München, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

This family has 2 children though they might make some noise after school or Sunday afternoon. The vertical void is sandwiched between the hair salon and their activity rooms and the vertical void solves to sound and vibration problem in a wooden structure especially. Of course it is better ventilation and getting sun light, part of circulation.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaExpose/envelope – The wooden structure is built to support a divided 2 volumes. But in the interior, the structure is not thought of as a structural frame which is thought of as a finishing material. This means that the interior is designed by partially exposing or enveloping of the structural frame.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaSave this picture!Section A-ASave this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaThe hair salon and living room are trapezoidal as floor shape. In this case, if the beams are arranged at equidistant, the beam height will increase according to the lengths. Utilizing this, we envelop the beams, which became larger due to the longer span on the second floor to put the equipment inside it. And partially expose the beams to keep the ceiling height of the hair salon. On the other hand, in order to unify the beam height of the roof, the distance between the beams is adjusted. As a result, roof beams created a sense of depth in the living room interesting in perspective view.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaThe idea of “expose/envelop” is also related to design the doors, door handles, benches, counters, etc. By exposing or enveloping partially, the structure frame is weakened as physically, and showing it more materially. Thereby we could handle a structural frame as an element of the interior, such as furniture. We are designing architecture by thinking in terms of “structural frame or interior element”, means not what Structural frame becomes interior element as straightforward.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaProject gallerySee allShow less2I4E House / P+0 Architecture + David Pedroza CastañedaSelected ProjectsForest House / Cacau Ribeiro InterioresSelected Projects Share Yu Yamada, Tomohiro Okada, SNARK Inc.

In April, the Society kick started its four-year partnership with Dementia UK – which aims to raise £500,000 – with a £25,000 donation. Nisa’s MADLThe total raised for good causes to date via Nisa’s registered charity, Making a Difference Locally, reached the £12m mark last month. Since the charity’s formation in 2008, just over £12.04m has been raised for local communities, with just over £1m raised during the last 12 months alone. Nisa partners have supported local causes with more than 14,500 donations to date, with recipients ranging from foodbanks, hospices and refuges to youth sports teams and community groups, to name a few. OPPO, giffgaff, & Accord Housing AssociationAccord Housing Association is helping to keep its customers connected through a partnership with mobile phone company OPPO, and network provider giffgaff. The new initiative aims to help keep people connected by donating 300 mobile phones and prepaid sim cards to Accord customers. Those benefitting from the scheme include customers who rely on internet access at the currently closed libraries, and people kept apart due to Covid-19 restrictions.

First Artisan Art Walk to showcase area’s hidden talent

first_img By admin – March 23, 2018 Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous article‘Inuksuit’ performance set at Stonehenge at UTPBNext articleMarch for Meals 2018 and Community Resource admin Pinterest WhatsApp Art walk 2018 poster center_img Inaugural Artisan Art Walk April 6-8Joyce Miller saw a void in the Permian Basin.Now, local artists are working to fill booths, piece together their materials and prop up their creations — all in order to fill it.The first Artisan Art Walk event in Odessa is set for the weekend of April 7 at Parks Legado Town Center.Miller, a longtime area director of creative arts, said she and the event’s other board members put together the art walk to offer a venue for local artists to sell and showcase their work, and help foster a bond between area students and seasoned artists, in new ways for the Permian Basin art scene.“Hopefully, we’re going to make a real big impact, because this is a place where people can come, where we can really showcase those artists,” Miller said over the phone March 19, in the weeks leading up to the event.“It’s not like a gallery, where there’s not as many people that can participate. This was open to anyone who wanted to come in.”Just less than three weeks before the event, Miller said organizers had sold all their booths to exhibitors except one.“It’s been a good response,” she said.The art walk is set to open from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. April 7, then from noon to 6 p.m. April 8, as perusers have the chance to appreciate art or buy pieces, or take in demonstration by experts, while music and food bring a festival atmosphere, Miller said.The event kicks off with a closed juried show on that Friday before the art walk opens to the public that Saturday morning.Miller served as the executive director of creative arts for the annual Permian Basin Fair and Exposition for more than 10 years. She has also served as a board director for the Texas Association for Fairs and Events for six years.While participating there at the state level, Miller went through a curriculum that challenged her to write a business plan for a new event that would take place in her area.Soon enough, though, Miller thought the Permian Basin’s art scene could benefit if she managed to turn the theoretical into a reality, and she and others on the art walk’s board have worked to do just that.Miller said the event is partnering with ECISD, Odessa College and UTPB to bring students to observe and connect with area artists.“Students that are studying the arts are going to have the opportunity to develop relationships, to be mentored by seasoned artists,” she said. “There’s often times a disconnect between academia and the real world,” she laughed, “and we’re hoping by having seasoned artists, that that’s going to help these students out a lot.“We’ve really made an effort to get out into the community, and talk to the educators in all of those areas, and having them come out,” she added.The event is accepting artists’ works in mediums from drawing and painting to woodwork and sculpting, with plenty in between.Miller said experts in the arts will be putting on demonstrations both Saturday and Sunday, for attendees interested.“Hopefully people that are attending can go in and watch the experts and also learn who they might be able to take some classes from,” she said.Moreover, Miller said she hopes that local artists can grow, and grow their profile, in an open-to-all event a bit unlike anything else going regularly in the Permian Basin.“There are a lot of fabulous artists that nobody has any idea that they’re even an artist,” she said.
