Sunday 6 March 2011 10:24 pm DEUTSCHE Boerse will have the upper hand in the planned mega-merger deal with NYSE Euronext, the exchange operators’ chief executive told a paper, as fears that the German firm will lose power linger.The proposed $10.2bn (£6.2bn) takeover of NYSE Euronext by Deutsche Boerse unveiled last month would leave Boerse’s shareholders with 60 per cent of the combined entity, but analysts have cautioned that the company may end up with less power. NYSE Euronext Chief Executive Duncan Niederauer told NYSE staff the deal was a “merger of two great companies, not a sale or an acquisition”.In an interview with German business daily Handelsblatt, to be published today, Deutsche Boerse Chief Executive Reto Francioni said the high market capitalisation “puts us (Deutsche Boerse) in a position to do this deal the way we envisage it.” Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp Deutsche Boerse banks on upper hand in merger whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Investor appetite for UK shares remains at rock bottom. The FTSE 100 has sunk back towards the 6,000-point marker while the FTSE 250’s dropping to two-week lows.On this occasion some truly awful US jobs numbers, and ghoulish comments from the Federal Reserve on the Stateside economy, have damaged confidence in UK shares. It’s quite possible a second stock market crash could be just around the corner. But are investors missing a terrific opportunity to get rich by selling up or sitting on the sidelines?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…Our view at The Motley Fool is an emphatic ‘yes’. Sure, share pickers need to be extremely careful given the severe economic consequences of Covid-19. But there remains a treasure trove of quality UK shares that could still make you rich. And the stock market crash allows you and I to buy them at dirt-cheap prices.3 top UK shares for your ISABuying UK shares following market crashes is a great way to supercharge your investment returns. It allows us to snap them up at low cost and to eventually sell them for much higher as market confidence improves.There’s a galaxy of oversold stocks on the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 alone that merit serious attention at current prices. Here’s a few I’m considering buying for my own Stocks and Shares ISA today:Bank of Georgia’s shares have collapsed during 2020 as Covid-19 has smashed the Eurasian country’s economy. But the bank spiked earlier this week following news that trading picked up significantly in the second quarter, leading to hopes of a faster-than-expected economic rebound. I’d buy this FTSE 250 stock on expectations of rocketing GDP growth over the medium-to-long term. And a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 7 times suggests excellent value today.FTSE 100 advertising colossus WPP, meanwhile, trades on a P/E ratio of 11 times for 2020. This UK share carries a meaty 3.5% dividend yield as well. Global ad spending has taken a whack this year but is expected to come roaring back from next year (media investment firm Group M reckons it’ll rebound 8% in 2021). And WPP has the scale and the expertise to ride this predicted uptick.The Berkeley Group also offers plenty of all-round value for investors. This FTSE 100 share trades on an undemanding forward P/E ratio of 15 times. And it boasts a chunky 4.5% dividend yield too. Sales of its newbuild homes might take a hit in the near term as the UK economy struggles. But the UK’s huge homes shortage should stop sales falling off a cliff. And this supply and demand imbalance should deliver splendid profits growth over the longer run once economic conditions improve.More quality stocks to buy after the crashThese are only a few of the cut-price UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my ISA. The list of quality stocks that are too cheap to miss after the stock market crash is huge. And The Motley Fool’s epic library of exclusive reports can help you find them and make a fortune.

The project is situated in a suburban low-density residential neighborhood called Cacupé, in the city of Florianópolis, an island in the south of Brazil. That district is a short strip of land between the bay and the hills, occupied mainly by single family houses. Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiMost of those stand-alone housing are gathered inside private condos.The landscape has changed a lot over the past years. Before, there were few small huts and fishermen sheds by the sea. The area was covered basically by untouched nature. Nowadays, with the growing urbanization of the city, that scenery no longer exists. There was a growth in construction and the condominiums took over the area along the main road and near the ocean. The new houses are concentrated in the lower areas, by the bay, transforming that space with higher density. City regulations establish a percentage of green land which must be preserved and that area was left to the top of the hills, at a farthest position from the water. Save this picture!Section CAs you walk inside these condos, you realize that the houses in the lowest part resemble single house constructions, because they use the maximum land occupation allowed and minimum distances from the lot borders. As the view to the bay is the most valued characteristic of those terrains, the houses “battle” for space, overlooking one another to access the sight of the sea.Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiThis project started out with a different perspective about construction in that area of the city and two personal desires. Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiThe main idea was to preserve the original nature of the land as much as possible, which included pre-existent topography and stones, creating a minimum occupancy house. We sought for a better relationship between landscape and architecture. Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiThis project was to be placed in a lot not so near the bay, nevertheless, it had a magnificent view, encouraging the client to invest in that particular space. However, due to the construction of the neighbor’s house, that view was partially lost. The first desire was to recover it. The second wish was to build a contemporary house, with integrated spaces, aligning design and style with efficiency technologies. Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiThe goal was to combine passive strategies with new tech systems in order to have a comfortable and energetically efficient home.In order to preserve the landscape, the house was suspended, leaving most of the ground as a garden. That privileged position of the main floor allowed a great view of all the North Bay and even of downtown.The underground level is the connection between the house and the street. That level has the minimum area as possible in order to fulfill the necessary program, including the machinery room, bathroom and garage. The rest of the ground remained preserved. The architecture at this level is defined by a freely design geometry and the rough concrete texture. As the next ground level is a little suspended from the ground, it was possible to create a long continuous opening near the ceeling – allowing constant natural ventilation to these underground spaces.The core of the house is the upper level, elevated four meters from the ground. It is a box with a large opening in the entire facade that faces the bay, therefore making that view a part of the house all the time. It is a home designed for a couple, without privacy restrictions, so the floor plan is totally open and integrated, containing bedroom, living room and kitchen in a single space.Save this picture!First Floor PlanMost of the ground level is a large terrace, partially covered by the upper suspended level, from where the residents can enjoy the entire garden and the pool area. It is a very permeable space, opened to the neighborhoodThe layout respected the original topography, so there are stairs and platforms to create the connections between spaces.Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiTwo big stones were also preserved, creating a stronger bond between the house and the landscape. The only closed space in that level is a small but expressive wooden box, which contains two suites for visitors.A casa mesmo é o salão suspenso 4 metros acima do terreno.This area is opened to the amazing landscape to the west, while the service and closed areas, such as closet, bathroom, toilet, pantry and laundry area positioned along the east facade.Save this picture!Section BThose rooms get sun light and ventilation through roof windows directed to the north.The West facade includes an especial awning system which keeps the house protected from the sun during the hottest hours of the day, without losing the view to the bay or the natural ventilation. Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiIn the east facade, there is a composition of openings that incorporates the view to the green hills in the house and also guarantees natural cross ventilation through the main room.On the roof there are fourteen solar panels which not only produce 80% of the energy consumed in the house but also shade the surface, protecting it from solar heat gaining. Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiHeat collectors were also installed on the roof in order to heat the water used in the house. The roof also has a system to collect rain water. This water is filtered and stocked in the underground level, where it is treated with ozone. From there it is directed to the house for common uses.Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael BridiThe house is sustainable and efficient. Bioclimatic strategies were employed to obtain comfort and modern technologies were included to reuse natural resources.Project gallerySee allShow lessSee the Twelve Russian Stadiums That Will Host the 2018 World CupArchitecture NewsThe World’s First Pavilion-Scale Structure Built Using Augmented RealityArchitecture News Share House in Cacupé / Pimont Arquitetura “COPY” Projects Architects: Pimont Arquitetura Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Year: CopyResidential Architecture, Houses, Sustainability•Florianópolis, Brazil Photographs: Pedro Caetano + Rafael Bridi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Brazil Area: 340 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895780/house-in-cacupe-pimont-arquitetura Clipboard Save this picture!© Pedro Caetano + Rafael Bridi+ 33Curated by Pedro Vada Share 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895780/house-in-cacupe-pimont-arquitetura Clipboard CopyAbout this officePimont ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityFlorianopolisBrazilPublished on June 08, 2018Cite: “House in Cacupé / Pimont Arquitetura” [Casa em Cacupé / Pimont Arquitetura] 08 Jun 2018.

News RSF_en Receive email alerts News Help by sharing this information News Aged 42, Hafeez Ur Rehman was returning home when unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle shot him three times and then drove off. He died on the spot. A journalist for the past 12 years, he worked for privately-owned Neo TV, owned a local TV station called New Star, and used to edit his own local daily, Asia, until he closed it a year ago.Rehman’s murder came just weeks after journalist Muhammad Zaman Mehsud, 40, was gunned down in a similar fashion on 3 November in Tank, in the south of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Shot five times, he died shortly afterwards in hospital.The Taliban claimed the murder of Mehsud, who was a reporter for the Nai Baat and Daily Ummat newspapers and was secretary-general of the South Waziristan branch of the Tribal Union of Journalists.“These two latest deadly attacks in less than a month have again highlighted the disastrous security situation for journalists in Pakistan, one that is completely unacceptable,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“We urge the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa authorities to do whatever it takes to ensure that those responsible for these crimes are brought to justice and that journalists are finally able to work freely and without fear of being murdered. Something must be done about the rampant impunity for crimes of violence against journalists in Pakistan. The right to information of 185 million Pakistanis depends on this.”Although the motive for Rehman’s murder has yet to be identified, journalists are favourite targets of the Taliban and other armed groups in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.The Taliban recently criticized the way they have been covered by the Pakistani media since the army imposed a blackout on reporting of their activities. Bordering both Afghanistan and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is at the heart of the armed conflict between the army and Taliban.A culture of impunity continues to be a distinguishing feature of Pakistan, which is ranked 159th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Journalist Syed Saleem Shahzad’s murder in May 2011, a case spotlighted by Reporters Without Borders on International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, is still unpunished more than four years after his death. to go further November 24, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Black November for journalists in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province June 2, 2021 Find out more April 21, 2021 Find out more Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire PakistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns Pakistani journalist Hafeez Ur Rehman’s murder on 22 November in Kohat, a city in the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

View post tag: Dwight USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) (IKE) completed sea trials June 15, marking another milestone in the warship’s long and storied career. During the sea trials, the aircraft carrier engaged in high-speed turns and various other tests. Along with testing the ship and its equipment, Sailors participated in drills ranging from man overboard to general quarters, as well as various other evolutions.As the crew took their ship out to sea, it was proven that IKE can withstand the rigors of at-sea operations following a nine-month pierside shipyard availability period.“At this stage, I could not be happier to see the way the crew and this ship have responded,” said Commander Paul A. Beckley, IKE’s operations officer. “[The maintenance period] was critically important to the longterm maintenance of IKE, and the shipyard did an outstanding job.”IKE’s crew accomplished nearly three hundred Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV) items in three days.“Whatever needed to be done was done at the end of the day,” said Quartermaster 3rd Class Taquia Stokes from IKE’s navigation department.“I’m looking forward to getting to do the job I joined the Navy to do,” Stokes added.The sea trials tested IKE materially and physically, said Beckley. “It is a testament to the crew that we were able to do this safely and with pride,” he added.Eisenhower’s crew enhanced many of the communication systems, ship’s radio systems, telephone systems and combat systems suites. Basic maintenance and habitability upkeep, tiling, lagging and painting were done as well.During the availability, more than 260,000 man days of work were completed and major jobs such as refitting the reactor training spaces, main coolant check valve replacement and a brand new media center.“We came out of the shipyard in better shape than when we entered it,” said Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class Tommy Hernandez, of IKE’s deck department.The crew’s extensive training during the availability, was key in preparing themselves for the arduous task of getting IKE underway after a long layoff.Sailors’ training during the planned incremental availability (PIA) prepared them to get the ship back to the fleet and transition to being operational “mainly by preparing for AIRLANT-directed training evaluations and conducting general quarters drills, reviewing all watchbills, and performing additional medical, navigation, and air drills,” said LCDR Brock Miller, IKE’s training officer.Now that IKE has successfully completed the PIA, she has commenced at-sea operations, working toward becoming surge ready. Her next major milestone will be flight deck certification. Those evolutions, along with on-loading ammunition and preparing for INSURV, will allow IKE to increase its combat readiness.[mappress]Source: navy, June 16, 2011; View post tag: sea View post tag: News by topic USS Dwight D.
