2 top UK shares to buy in June

Image source: Getty Images. I’m on the lookout for top UK shares to add to my portfolio in June. Here are a couple that I think could soar in price next month.Watch out for fresh financials!I think buying Flowtech Fluidpower (LSE: FLO) could be a good idea before it updates the market around the time of its annual general meeting on 3 May. The company’s share price has now recovered all the ground it lost following the 2020 stock market crash. Its latest forecast-beating update a month ago leads me to believe another sunny release is in the offing.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…This UK engineering share makes hydraulic and pneumatic systems that allow industrial companies to create, transfer, and control power. And demand for its goods is picking up as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) restock and activity among resellers improves. Indeed, Flowtech’s first-quarter performance was so robust that it predicted it could end 2021 with a revenues run rate similar to pre-pandemic levels.At current prices, Flowtech Fluidpower changes hands on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 21 times. This sort of meaty rating — allied with the strong recent share price performance — poses an investment risk. If the company were to announce that its trading has started to level off, it could prompt a sharp share price reversal.Logistics leviathanI also think Urban Logistics REIT (LSE: SHED) could be a shrewd buy before it releases full-year results on 9 June. UK logistics and warehousing shares Clipper Logistics and Tritax Big Box REIT are already in my portfolio. I think rising e-commerce volumes will deliver strong and sustained shareholder returns. And I’m expecting Urban Logistics’s upcoming release to reiterate its exceptional structural opportunities.I plan to hold those shares for a decade or more. Demand for distribution and storage assets continues to outstrip demand by a fair lick as Internet shopping activity rises. Consequently, rents are on a steady upward slant and the likes of Urban Logistics are expanding rapidly to exploit this market to the fullest. The company claimed at the time of its interim report in November that “the logistics market continues to break all records”.The Covid-19 outbreak supercharged online shopping volumes as lockdowns shuttered physical stores all over the globe. A legion of new Internet users entered the fray and retailers invested vast sums to improve their online operations. It’s no wonder that Urban Logistics has said that “we expect that behavioural changes formed during lockdown are here to stay”. And logistics services providers like this stand to benefit significantly from this sea change in consumer habits.Urban Logistics’s healthy appetite for acquisitions could create trouble later down the line. Property companies can overpay for assets, or an asset can fail to deliver on its promise for a variety of reasons. That said, I’d still add this UK share to my own shares portfolio right now.

‘Acompañantes’ en ambos lados de la tumba

first_img Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Por Pat McCaughanPosted Nov 2, 2012 Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA [Episcopal News Service] El hermano Ron Fender pasará el 1 y el 2 de noviembre, las fiestas de Todos los Santos y de los Fieles Difuntos [respectivamente], recordando a los desamparados y a los muertos que nadie reclama, primero adornando sus tumbas con flores y, un día después, con una comida y una Eucaristía.Si bien la conmemoración de los muertos en la Iglesia Episcopal es una tradición de larga data, la de Fender se cuenta entre un creciente número de ministerios comunitarios que “acompañan” a los pobres, los desamparados, las personas marginadas y solas, en ambos lados de la tumba.Como  asesor de la Cocina Comunitaria de Chattanooga, Fender, monje de la Hermandad Episcopal de San Gregorio [Episcopal Brotherhood of St. Gregory] brinda toda una gama de servicios a las personas sin hogar, entre ellos el celebrar una vigilia con los moribundos y también darles sepultura.El ministerio surgió “poco después de que yo llegué aquí”, recordaba él durante una reciente entrevista telefónica desde su oficina. “Uno de los hombres sin hogar sufrió un colapso aquí en la cocina y dejó de respirar. Le dimos resucitación cardiopulmonar, lo llevamos al hospital y allí lo pusieron en ventilación asistida. Pero después de algunas horas, los médicos me llamaron y me preguntaron si él tenía familia.“Yo sabía que no tenía porque él me había dicho muchas veces que estaba solo en el mundo y le preocupaba que no hubiera nadie para enterrarlo”, recordaba Fender. “El médico me dijo, ‘en verdad debemos dejarlo partir’. Comenzaron a desconectarle todo. Yo estuve junto a él hasta el fin.Con esa muerte me di cuenta de que “yo no quería que ninguno de ellos muriera solo y, aun si morían solos, yo no quería dejarlos insepultos sin algún reconocimiento de quienes habían sido y del hecho que yo les había querido y de que Dios los había recibido en sus brazos”.Eso fue hace 10 años. Su ministerio ha evolucionado de tal manera que la oficina del médico forense le avisa cuando tienen un cadáver al que nadie reclama. El condado dona una tumba y las funerarias la localidad ofrecen sus servicios y un ataúd de cartón.Él despide el duelo de los muertos “y trato de personalizarlo”, contó Fender. “Yo sí siempre les aseguro a los que están reunidos allí que esa persona ya dejó de no tener hogar. Que esa persona ha encontrado un hogar. Nosotros somos los desamparados, pero que esa persona ya ha dejado de serlo”.Fender cree que una noche cualquiera “hay de 300 a 500 personas durmiendo a la intemperie”, dijo él. “Chattanooga tiene un albergue de emergencia, y tiene 42 camas para hombres y 12 para mujeres, de manera que un gran número de personas duerme a la intemperie”.‘Vigilia’ sagrada en Los ÁngelesEn Los Ángeles, la triple colaboración de la Rda. Sarah Nichols, del Prof. Don Gabard, de la Universidad de Chapman y de la Dra. Pamlyn Close, ha preparado a casi 100 voluntarios para el programa A Tu Lado [By Your Side], un programa concebido para “encontrar a las personas donde se encuentren y sirviendo de compañeros compasivos de los agonizantes”.Nichols, director de cuidado pastoral de Comunidades y Servicios Episcopales de la diócesis, dijo que los voluntarios ofrecen “el don de la auténtica presencia” a los que se encuentran en los hospitales, asilos de ancianos, instalaciones de atención sanitaria a largo plazo, sus propias parroquias y comunidades de influencia.“La investigación revela que la compañía y el apoyo espiritual son dos de los deseos más importantes al final de la vida, y no obstante muchos norteamericanos mueren solos”, dijo Nichols en un correo electrónico a Episcopal News Service.“Al enfrentarse a la vulnerabilidad del fin de la vida, todo ser humano merece que le afirmen la santidad [de su persona] y que le reconozcan su espiritualidad mediante la presencia compasiva de otra persona, de cualquier modo que le resulte significativo”, añadió.No se trata de hacer proselitismo ni incluso de orar, dice Don Gabard, fisioterapeuta y párroco de la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Pasadena, a quien la muerte de su madre y el servicio voluntario lo ayudaron a inspirar A Tu Lado.Hace seis años su madre se estaba muriendo de un cáncer ovárico en Carolina del Norte y “ella me hizo saber claramente que quería que yo estuviera allí”, recordaba él en una reciente entrevista telefónica con ENS. “Yo me sentía muy entristecido por su muerte, pero al mismo tiempo muy agradecido de poder estar allí”.Él también ha hecho trabajo voluntario en el centro médico de la Universidad del Sur de California en el condado de Los Ángeles, donde por lo menos el siete por ciento de los pacientes son personas sin hogar y nunca tienen quien los visite.Lo que muchas personas realmente quieren “es contar su historia”, agregó. “Pueden contártela muchas veces pero cambia porque lo que están haciendo es encontrándole un sentido a la vida”.Así que “no existe ninguna fórmula para esto. Las personas tienen su manera única de darle sentido o de encontrarle sentido [a la vida] en su fe, si tienen fe”.Gabard recordaba la visita a una niña de siete años. “Sus familiares la abandonaron cuando descubrieron que tenía una enfermedad catastrófica que iba a quitarle la vida”.“No podían resistir estar allí. Lo que hicimos como voluntarios fue sostenerla y cantarle y consolarla como uno hace con cualquier niño. Si hay derechos que son inalienables, el de ser sostenido y amado como niño es ciertamente uno de ellos”.Los voluntarios visitan a los que  se encuentran desatendidos por su familia, no tienen familia, o son muy jóvenes o  tienen más de 80 años. De todo tipo. No puedo predecir quién o qué voy a ver cuando vaya allí”.Durante dos años como voluntaria de A Tu Lado, Sharon Crandall, feligresa de la iglesia de Nuestro Salvador [Our Saviour] en San Gabriel, California,  [el ministerio] de visitar a los moribundos “ha sido mucho más gratificante y transformador de lo que yo nunca habría imaginado”.“He aprendido que el mejor enfoque es no tener ninguna expectativa. Aprender a conocer a personas cuando se encuentran en el proceso de morir me ha ayudado en mis relaciones con los demás y en mi relación con Dios”, afirmó.“También me dio el valor y la compasión para cuidar a mi tía en sus últimas semanas y a mi suegra en sus últimos meses. Ambas tenían el deseo de morir en su casa. Fue tan gratificante poder compartir este tiempo con ellas dos. Es un don que uno realmente tiene que experimentar, la gracia de la agonía”.Esperanza y ángeles en DetroitA las 4 P.M. el tercer miércoles de cada mes, Carolyn Gamble, guardiana mayor de la iglesia episcopal de San Cristóbal-San Pablo [St. Christopher’s-St. Paul’s] en Detroit se reúne, junto con Kaitlyn, su nieta de 13 años y otras personas, en la Funeraria Perry.Ellos encienden una vela, leen los nombres de los muertos que nadie ha reclamado en la ciudad, oran y cantan.Al igual que Gabard en Los Ángeles, la participación de Gamble partió de la experiencia personal. Su madre había vivido tanto en Nueva York como en Detroit y “cuando ella murió le celebraron servicios religiosos en ambos lugares”, explicó Gamble durante una entrevista telefónica el 29 de octubre.Cuando otra feligresa le habló de los fallecidos en la ciudad que nadie reclamaba en la morgue, “de la manera en que disponían de sus cadáveres, sin oficio religioso ni nada, realmente me impacto”, contó ella. “Me resultó extraño, sentí que alguien debía hacer algo”.La funeraria facilita el espacio y los nombres de aquellos a quien nadie reclama. La iglesia ha ofrecido servicios no denominacionales desde 2008, según la Rda. Deborah-Semon Scott, rectora de San Cristóbal-San Pablo. En ese tiempo, “he perdido la cuenta de a cuantas personas les hemos celebrado un culto”, dijo, “Anda en los miles”.Ella ha oficiado por igual en entierros para bebés que para personas centenarias. Usualmente no hay cenizas ni cuerpos presentes. En su lugar, se enciende una vela y hay una sola rosa de tallo largo que lleva una tarjeta con el nombre y la fecha de nacimiento y muerte de la persona, si se conoce, por cada individuo que se recuerda. En varios oficios, ha habido un mínimo de 30 velas y rosas o un máximo de 60, agregó.“Podrían haber estado en un asilo; a veces tenemos oficios por bebés que se malograron o que murieron al nacer o nacieron muertos”, según cuenta Semon-Scott. “Y también hemos tenido servicios para individuos de quienes se encontraron los restos y tienen como fecha de muerte el día en que los encontraron. Todo lo que pueden hacer es decir que fueron hombres o mujeres y en ocasiones ese dato es bastante impreciso. Suena macabro, pero es un hecho real”.El ministerio comenzó después que un ex feligrés oyó una transmisión radial  de que Detroit y otras grandes ciudades  tenían acumulación de cadáveres no reclamados. “Él pensó lo triste que era que alguien viniera a esta vida y fuera parte de este reino por cualquier extensión de tiempo y partiera como si nunca hubiera estado, y no pudiera hacerse algo al respecto”, contó ella.Después de las oraciones, hay himnos, “algo que todo el mundo se sepa, como “Mantennos unidos, Señor” [Bind us together, Lord].“Estos son seres humanos creados a imagen del creador y toda vida es sagrada, cualquiera sea el tiempo que nos ha sido dado: la buena, la mala y la fea. Debe ser celebrada, reconocida y agradecida porque ellos anduvieron sobre la tierra”, afirmó. “Entrar en la noche como si nunca hubieras existido es muy triste”.Aunque el ministerio “ha tocado profundamente las vidas de las personas que han sido parte de él”, los voluntarios son pocos, tal vez porque es malentendido.“Creíamos que haríamos esto una o dos veces al año”, recordaba Gamble. “Creíamos que [la idea] cuajaría y que otros querrían hacerlo también. Pero no cuajó. No hemos encontrado gente que se interese”.Semon-Scott estuvo de acuerdo. “Cuando reivindico esto como uno de nuestros ministerios comunitarios, como una misión de la Iglesia, usualmente la respuesta de otros clérigos es ‘oh, tiene que ser horrible ir y hacer eso’”.Paradójicamente, es cualquier cosa menos eso, dijo Semon-Scott. “¿Cómo podría algo que uno supondría que es lúgubre conllevar una paz jubilosa? Y sin embargo, así es. Subrayó ella. “Uno puede marcharse y saber que hacerlo fue algo bueno y justo”.Volviendo a Chattanooga, Fender dijo que él había dado sepultura a 26 personas el año pasado. “Este año, hasta el momento, han sido sólo 12, gracias a Dios”.El ministerio es importante “porque la conexión entre nosotros y los que han muerto sigue siendo muy fuerte”, agregó. “Pienso que estamos conectados eternamente a través de Dios y cuando visito el cementerio y esas tumbas sé que esa persona está presente allí conmigo. La muerte puede ponerle fin a una vida terrena, pero no le pone fin a un ser.“Somos seres espirituales con una experiencia humana terrenal y nuestra conexión con ellos es muy fuerte. Creo que mientras los recordemos sabemos que nos devuelven la mirada con amor y acción de gracias. Siempre les digo a mis amigos desamparados cuando visito sus tumbas que los veré de nuevo algún día”.–La Rda. Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service y está radicada en Los Ángeles.

Fez House / Álvaro Siza Vieira

first_img Fez House / Álvaro Siza Vieira Projects Houses Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/113589/fez-house-alvaro-leite-siza-vieira Clipboard Photographs:  Fernando Guerra | FG+SGText description provided by the architects. Designed and built by Alvaro Leite Siza Vieira, the Fez House is located in Porto, Portugal. This home and studio space, ‘the work of my life’ according to Siza, took 12 years to complete, assembling the site, designing the house, and then building it. The home’s size is almost statuesque with its lines and angles.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGTo do architecture it’s necessary a client, a promoter. When I realized, in certain moment of my career that to continue my path I would need to occupy that role too, I didn’t hesitate. I conciliated objectives, interests, goals, I pursued an ideal and I achieved a dream. I also had the need to be, in this work, supervisor, coordinator and project director, in an organization in direct administration. I started this work in 2004 and I finished it in early of 2005. The construction begins in February of 2006 and was concluded in July of 2010. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe project of personal house-atelier is the first where is present touching figures in their own atmosphere, exalting pieces, personalities that derive from history, versus the sensibility, recreating individually realities, with no intention previously defined. They appear in the middle of delivery to ones believe beyond what we need (specific program and functional), sublimation underlying to authentic communication of the creative process. When the modern is old, a pass appears in the most eloquent and distant expression. The affirmation of a new Romantism, of a Classic Renaissance, came directly of the origins, with the interior load not less important. The home like laboratory of ones dream that represent the drives, ideas, tensions and strength behind de matter. The stories and its emotions that condense the symbolism that represent. The figures and humans relations. In this project, borned from free drawings of harlequin – laughing about the problems, the tensions, the conflicts, the mismatches, between other dramas that surround this activity – that transforms in a geometric abstraction, where there’s no place for frames or glasses, I rehearse the affirmation of a new Classicism. Transitional spaces, the porticos, the lamps, the light, the doorknobs, the doors, the hand rails, even some paintings and the furniture was designed for me, but also other of XIX century (timeless pieces) that came from my family that fit the environment perfectly, beyond other elements, complement the creation of environments that exalt Mozart, Leonardo da Vinci, Miguel Angelo and surrounded by a lot of extraordinary Art works, that aren’t limited to the atmosphere of purely imaginary architectural. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe conclusion of this ideal was possible due to a personal characteristic of obstinated stubbornness and dissatisfaction non less expressive. It started 12 years ago, with an acquisition of a lot without access to the street and for that a lot more financially favourable. In the next 6 years I tried to find a connection that would make this possible. I was lucky that a promoter of one unoccupied lot was a direct cousin of my mother that finally would sell it to me. I was forced to buy another lot next to this one to make the business feasible, that I sold with a personal approved project. In this way, I capitalized, investing all the money in this business. During the necessary operation of regrouping of the lands, appears the project, result of one discourse of paradoxical intentions. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe volumes organized themselves by vertical and horizontal sections. One programme built by one atelier facing to the street, garages and service areas working with a hinge and finally the House related with the garden. One of underground storey corresponds to the foundations, another ground storey in granite, corresponding to the public and social areas, and even the top story. If In one hand, the ground floor expressed them self of inside to outside, of the intimacy to the exterior in an explosive manifesting, creating the necessary openings, the porticos of transition and the respective skylights of natural light; for other hand, the upper storey implode. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe aggression of exterior create symbolic tensions, pressures that recognize themselves of outside to inside, reducing their volumetry, giving rise to one figurative image. Through a geometric rigorous abstraction to make possible the constructive system, built by lozenges associated in different angles that confer higher tridimensionality, I found the proportion that I wanted, the horizontality I wished, the orientation predefined, the objectified and determined direction.

Architecture that seeks change in space . Seeking to change a past that defines form and functions into a future of possibilities . Major renovation and interventions, a building with an original plan, with many sectors and a new demand for complete renovation and total transformation. The young client sought to integrate the entire plant and optimize her space as much as possible, so many interventions were made on the original plant, which changed completely. Service ro om turned into toilet. Kitchen and laundry area have been integrated and transformed into a single space integrated with living and dining room.Save this picture!© Carolina LacazSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Carolina LacazThe new plant and shape are a universe of possibility, allowing users to empower themselves and take ownership of the whole, as it is and how it can become. Bringing an architecture that does not define the space and delimits it, but that can be modified by use and that meets the demands of a world and a modern Being in constant change. The pre existing elements we re incorporated as main design elements. The structural beam that permeates the room governs the alignment of the slatted panel, in addition to the lighting that was installed on the side of the structure, appropriating it and generating new meanings for a n aesthetically challenging element in the environment. Also due to this original structure, the panels, which emerged as a solution for the entrance wall, mimic the main hall door and service door on the same wall.Save this picture!© Carolina LacazSave this picture!© Carolina LacazThe client’s personality asks for clear and clean elements, which determines the predominance of white and gray in a delicate way in the social environment, but which is interrupted by points of unpredictability and warmth. The wooden floor becomes a ‘box’ in the home theater , with wall covering and lin ing, creating a cozy and intimate space, which contrasts and enhances the neutral and clear base. As another point of unpredictability, we have the unique and surprising toilet.

first_img Previous articleDon Orr Recieves AFIA’s Distinguished Service AwardNext articleGlobal Corn Market Focusing on China Gary Truitt U.S. ethanol exports totaled 95.3 million gallons (mg) in March, up 42% from February and the highest monthly volume in more than four years, according to government data released on Wednesday. China was the top destination, receiving 37 mg of U.S. product in March. Brazil (20.7 mg) and Canada (16.2 mg) were other leading customers. Year-to-date ethanol exports through the first quarter stood at 249.4 mg, meaning the industry is on pace to ship 1 billion gallons of exports in 2016.Through the first three months of the year, China had imported 75.2 mg of U.S. ethanol, topping its total imports of 70.5 mg during the entire 2015 calendar year.Exports of denatured fuel ethanol hit 50.1 mg in March, up 49% from February. Two countries accounted for 99% of denatured fuel ethanol exports—China received 35.3 mg, while Canada took in 14.3 mg. Brazil was the only other major importer of denatured fuel ethanol in March, bringing in 0.5 mg.Undenatured fuel ethanol exports tallied at 41.2 mg in March, up 32% from the previous month. At 20.7 mg, Brazil received roughly half of the undenatured product shipments. India (4.1 mg), Peru (3.3 mg), South Korea (3.3 mg), Jamaica (2.9 mg), Mexico (2.6 mg), and China (1.7 mg) were other top markets for undenatured fuel ethanol in March.

Appeal court keeps long jail terms, albeit reduced, for two newspaper executives

first_img Help by sharing this information China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Follow the news on China April 27, 2021 Find out more March 12, 2021 Find out more June 16, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Appeal court keeps long jail terms, albeit reduced, for two newspaper executives Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) voiced outrage at yesterday’s decision by an appeal court in Guangzhou to maintain long prison terms for two former executives of the liberal daily Nanfang Dushi Bao, general manager Yu Huafeng and managing editor Li Minying, although it reduced the length of the terms imposed by a lower court.The case continues to be marred by irregularities and political pressure, Reporters Without Borders said. The organisation also protested against the continuing detention of the daily’s former editor Cheng Yizhong, who has been held by the police without being charged since 20 March.On appeal, the Guangzhou intermediate court reduced Yu’s prison sentence from 12 to eight years, and Li’s from 11 to six years. After the judges issued their ruling, Yu said responded: “You can manipulate the law, but not history.” He intends to appeal again to the Guangzhou high court.Reporters Without Borders said it was disgraceful to see an appeal court repeat point by point the arguments made in the lower court’s verdict, which had been crude and manipulated by the local authorities. The organisation added it hoped the high court would receive the appeal which Yu’s lawyer intended to file.”All the facts of his case need to be re-examined,” Reporters Without Borders said in a letter addressed to China’s ambassador to the United Nations in New York. “Sentences of six and eight years in prison for crimes of opinion are indefensible and contrary to the international undertakings given by the People’s Republic of China.”The government news agency Xinhua quoted the judges as saying: “The first verdicts were based on clear facts and real evidence. The verdict punished the crime and the judicial procedure was legal. But the punishment was relatively heavy.”The journalists’ defence lawyer, Xu Zhiyong, insisted on his clients’ innocence. “We all think it was a miscarriage of injustice,” he said. He reported that his law firm’s website, www.oci.org.cn, had been blocked by the authorities during the week preceding the hearing. He also deplored the news blackout about the case in the Chinese press.The arrests were in fact linked to a series of investigations carried by the liberal Guangzhou newspaper, particularly on Sars and the death of a young graphic artist, Sun Zhigang, beaten to death in a Guangzhou police station. They were all sacked from the newspaper before being detained.This conspiracy by the local authorities, including Guangzhou police chief, Zhu Suisheng, against this brave daily aims to foster a climate of fear among Chinese journalists. Reporters Without Borders has spoken to several of them. They described themselves as “crushed” and “terrified” by the arrests of the three journalists.
