See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Is the Johnson Matthey share price undervalued? Clean air advocate Johnson Matthey (LSE:JMAT) has made some exciting announcements in recent weeks. The FTSE 100 company is moving into battery and hydrogen tech. It also has several other interesting revenue streams. I last wrote about the stock in April when I was tempted to buy JMAT shares, but I haven’t taken the plunge yet.Trading sidewaysThe Johnson Matthey share price has risen around 2% since then. Last year the JMAT share price fell 20%, but it has risen 89% since the market crash in March 2020. It’s now trading above its pre-pandemic 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…I think the fact the share price has already recovered could be putting investors off jumping in at this stage. However, I see growth opportunities ahead in several areas of the business.JMAT is the world’s largest secondary refiner of platinum group metals (PGM), it also creates enamels for strengthening car parts, emission control technologies, battery materials and pharmaceutical ingredients.Clean air solutionsThe company is mainly known for producing catalytic converters for exhaust systems in the traditional auto industry. We’re well aware climate change mandates are sending this industry into decline, but that doesn’t spell the end for Johnson Matthey’s business. Catalytic converters essentially make the air cleaner, so they’re still in high demand, certainly in the near term. And the company is making an effort to move into the electric vehicle market.It recently announced plans to build a second battery plant in Finland. This will produce 30k tonnes of cathode products used in lithium-ion batteries, which are essential to the EV market.Johnson Matthey makes moves to recycle PGMsIt’s also partnering with Plug Power, a green hydrogen company, to speed up joint development of high-performance electrolyser technology. I think this looks to be an exciting partnership boosting the credibility of both businesses. Together, they’re particularly focusing on developing a closed loop recycling system to recover and reuse as much critical PGM material as possible.Recycling is vital in making the process more sustainable.A well-established businessIn its FY20/21 results, it said underlying sales and operating profit both fell 5%. While not great, this wasn’t as bad as feared, given Covid-19’s impact on car sales. A rise in commodity prices brought strength to its PGM division. Plus underlying operating profit in its Health division rose 15%. Overall, reported revenue increased 8% driven by higher average precious metal prices.The board raised its dividend 26% year-on-year to 70p.However, there are still risks attached to investing in this business. The company’s move into EV and hydrogen is uncharted territory and there are no guarantees it will succeed. But I do think it’s promising that such a specialist company is attempting to go down this route.Despite its 2020 recovery, the Johnson Matthey share price is down 15% in three years. Yet it’s still trading on a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 29, which looks high. But if it can pull off its EV angles, then I think it could have further to climb.So we’re not talking about a classic undervalued stock, but it’s one that may still reward investors in the future. Johnson Matthey has a stellar reputation, earnings per share are 106p and its dividend yield is 2.2%. I think this is a great business to ride the energy transition wave and I’d happily add JMAT shares to my Stocks and Shares ISA.

The house nestles against the slope. Partially buried to the north, it opens to the south over the valley of the Veinazès through a wide glass-panelled façade.Save this picture!© Christophe CamusReinterpreting several elements of the vernacular architecture from the area of the Châtaigneraie in the département of the Cantal, the design of the house aims to fit it into the environment, as it favours responsibility and sustainability. Thus the concrete volume embedded in the soil benefits from an exterior facing in granite on which rests a structure in Douglas fir. The joint-covered siding is a technique frequently used in the region. The green roof contributes to blend the construction into the landscape as well. From stone to wood, from shade to light, its design also incorporates a bioclimatic approach. The north/south orientation of the construction allows passive solar gain. The masonry volume which shelters the buffer space adds inertia. In winter, the latter accumulates solar energy during the day and feeds it back at night. In summer, combined with a natural ventilation system, it cools the house. The living spaces are set in the wood volume. They extend outside onto a wood terrace sheltered by a wide roof overlap, which screens the sun during the summer months. Save this picture!© Christophe CamusSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Christophe CamusAt the intersection of the two volumes, a circulation space with a strip of natural light links the different areas. The green roof also provides inertia and improves climatic comfort. The insulation is made with cellulose wadding and hemp, optimizing the project’s energy performance and environmental report. The interior ceiling and wall covering is in wood. The choice of Douglas fir for the structure and of larch for the exterior favours local resources. The firms involved in the building are local as well.Save this picture!© Christophe CamusProject gallerySee allShow lessOffice in Debrecen / Archiko KftSelected ProjectsOphir / Architects’ CreativeSelected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officeAtelier du Rouget Simon Teyssou & associésOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLacapelle-del-FraisseFrancePublished on April 24, 2016Cite: “Lacapelle-del-fraisse / Atelier du Rouget Simon Teyssou & associés” 24 Apr 2016.

first_img Tagged with: Nfpsynergy Research / statistics However, the report concludes the trust in overseas development and aid charities has not fallen as much as might have been expected following the Oxfam and other charities’ sexual misconduct cases. It suggests that this could be because overseas charities are already seen differently by the public with lower trust levels than many other sectors.nfpSynergy also asked the public how much of each charity sectors’ income should come from government as well as how much does come from government. For almost all sectors the public thinks that what should come from government exceeds what they do get by 15-25 percentage points. The only exception to this is the overseas aid and development sector, which people think receives much more of its income from the government than it does (42% compared to 29%). Figures from nfpSynergy show public trust in overseas aid and development charities declined between Autumn 2017 and February this year.In nfpSynergy‘s report,  overseas aid and development is the sector with the second lowest level of respondents who said they trust the sector ‘a great deal’ at 10%, just behind religious charities, trusted ‘a great deal’ by 8%. Charities scoring the high levels of trust were hospices, cancer, and rescue services, trusted a great deal by 40%, 39% and 37% respectively.Overall trust in charities has fallen 6%, from 60% last Autumn to 54% in February this year, close to August 2017’s levels. Overseas aid and development charities saw a drop in trust from 40% to 36%. Most sectors have remained steady however with only three others: children and young people, sensory impairment, and religious, also seeing slight decreases in trust levels.

first_imgGolden State Warriors’ Steph Curry (30) pauses during an NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Oakland, Calif. Though he moved on to the NBA long ago, March Madness is also Curry’s world now. + posts Twitter Associated Presshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/associated-press/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award printHOUSTON (AP) — Though he moved on to the NBA long ago, March Madness is also Steph Curry’s world now.Whether it was the Villanova kid swishing a 40-footer just because he could, or the Northern Iowa guard sinking the half-court buzzer-beater when he had to, reminders of Curry, who burst onto the college scene with double-digit Davidson and has now turned the Warriors into NBA champions, have been stamped all over this year’s NCAA Tournament.“He’s made the improbable probable,” said Reggie Miller, the former UCLA and Pacers star who was never shy about launching from a distance himself.Villanova and North Carolina will wrap up the college season Monday.Those looking to draw big-picture conclusions about whether college hoops has been irreversibly Curry-ized might view the matchup like this: It’s the Wildcats, who defied every prediction about bad sightlines in Houston’s stadium and shot 11 for 18 from 3-point land against Oklahoma; and it’s the Tar Heels, who rank 290th in the country in 3-point shooting and could barely draw iron from long range for most of their game against Syracuse.“When the ball goes in,” Texas coach Shaka Smart said, “it’s definitely more entertaining.”Earlier in the tournament, Villanova’s Kris Jenkins made one from the edge of the Texas panhandle on the half-court logo. Forward Daniel Ochefu saw it go in, and glanced over at teammate Darryl Reynolds.“We both got eye contact, like, ‘Wow!’ That was Steph range,’” Ochefu said.Those sorts of shots flew and fell at an outrageous clip over the last month. There was Paul Jesperson’s half-court buzzer beater for Northern Iowa; the 70-footer by UConn’s Jalen Adams in the American Athletic Conference tournament; anything Buddy Hield did before Oklahoma’s meltdown against ‘Nova.Bronson Koening summed up his own long-range game-winner for Wisconsin on the first weekend this way: “I just tried to channel my inner Steph Curry.”But it’s not only this lightning-quick, 6-foot-3 guard’s ability to make outrageous 3s that’s changing things.“Now, we see all the point guards on the baseline doing what Steph does with the two-ball-dribbling drills and everything else during the warmup,” said Wes Kosel, an assistant coach at Division III Colorado College.“And it’s not just at the college level, but at the camp level,” Kosel said. “A couple years ago, it was everyone with the Kevin Durant clothes. Now, it’s all the Steph Curry clothes, and you see kids work at losing the ball, then picking it up and shooting it like Curry does.”But be warned. Curry makes it look easy. It isn’t.Over the past five years, 3-point percentage has remained basically steady in Division I, rising only 0.3 percentage points to 35.2, according to STATS.Look at the Tar Heels. They have future NBAers galore. But on Saturday, they went 4 for 17 on 3s and, quite the opposite of some of the shots Curry takes, they were toeing the line and getting open looks. They’ve won all season with solid defense and an offense that gets things done in the middle and is nowhere near dependent on 3-point shots falling.“I’m sure a lot of people patterned their game after Michael (Jordan) but they didn’t turn into Michael,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of his old teammate. “I hope all the young players we play against the next few years are pulling up from 35 feet off the dribble because we’ll probably be rebounding the ball and going the other way.”To prevent this, some coaches stay on a Curry-watch of sorts. They’re used to designing intricate offenses and dictating most possessions from the bench. They are wary of abandoning old-school Xs and Os in favor of the 30-foot jump shot.“You only want guys doing that if they can shoot like him, and there are very few who can shoot like him,” Charles Barkley said.Meanwhile, the coaches with the guys who can shoot like him are learning to let go.“We’ve got Kyle Wiltjer,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said of the Zags’ 44-percent 3-point shooter. “If Wiltjer gets an open 3 with 28 seconds on the (shot) clock, or with 20, that’s a good thing, no matter where it’s coming from. We don’t need a ball swing. We’re going to get paid on that possession more times than not.”All this tilt toward the outside isn’t new. Things have been trending that way since the 1980s, when the 3-pointer was introduced and made this a game that, more and more, is won from the outside. Curry is taking things to the next level — most notably by making the actual 3-point arc more a suggestion than a line in the sand.“You look at all the people studying these analytics and trying to figure out what the most efficient shot is,” Smart said. “And if you have good shooters, people want to get as many good looks as they can from outside.”Good for the game? Miller certainly thinks so. Of course he does.“Young kids are watching this, saying, ‘I don’t have to be 6-8, 6-9, 6-10, I don’t have to be able to jump over the moon to be successful at this game,’” he said. “If I do the little things, if I’m fundamentally sound, if I pass well, if I can shoot, I can be successful.”Copyright 2016 The Associated Press.

first_img PakistanAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Pakistan Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists News RSF_en Four of the most widely-read Urdu-language newspapers in the southwestern province of Balochistan – Mashriq, Express, Intikhab and Jang – are being investigated under the anti-terrorism law for publishing a statement by the banned Balochistan Liberation Army in which it claimed responsibility for the murder of a policeman.Two of these newspapers – Mashriq and Jang – and the TV station Geo News are also being investigated for carrying an anti-democratic diatribe by Hakeemullah Masood, the head of the outlawed armed Islamist group Tehreek-e-Taliban.“We call for the immediate withdrawal of all the judicial proceedings that have been initiated against these media on the pretext of combatting terrorism,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They did not disseminate the statements of these banned terrorist organizations freely. They did so under duress, as a result of threats that the Pakistani authorities should be preventing. As they did not express support for these organizations, charges cannot be brought against them.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Balochistan’s police and judicial authorities would do better to concentrate on finding and punishing those responsible for murdering journalists. Few of them have ever been caught.”Essa Tareen, the head of the Balochistan Union of Journalists (BUJ), told Reporters Without Borders that the investigation against the four newspapers was opened on 12 April on the basis of a so-called First Information Report or FIR filed by the police officer Mohibullah Dadi.Reporters, editors and managing editors have since then been cited under various articles of the anti-terrorism law although none of their names was mentioned in the FIR, Tareen said.The FIR and the decision to open the investigation were the result of a meeting between Balochistan chief justice Qasi Faez Isa and members of the Quetta police on 9 April during which the police criticized the publication of the Balochistan Liberation Army statement claiming police officer Amir Muhammad Dasti’s murder.They said it “demoralized” the police and “intimidated” the population. They also accused the media of “glorifying” the province’s armed separatist movement, referring to them as “mujahedeen” and “holy warriors.”Balochistan is one of the world’s most dangerous regions for journalists. Mashriq, Express, Intikhab and Jang have for years been the targets of serious threats by both outlawed separatist groups and the authorities.

At the end of the hearing, he issued a summons to Jang and Geo News to attend the next hearing on 2 May.A total of four journalists have been killed in Balochistan since the start of the year. Three were killed in a double bombing in Quetta on 10 January. They were Samaa News cameraman Imran Shaikh, Samaa News reporter Saifur Rehman and Mohammad Iqbal, a photographer with News Network International (NNI), a news agency.The fourth victim was Mehmood Ahmed Afridi, a reporter for the newspaper Intikhab, who was gunned down in Karat on 1 March.

The court issued a warrant for her arrest since she did not attend the hearing.The journalist has the right to appeal against her sentence. Her lawyer, Servet Osen, has called for his client’s acquittal in the name of freedom of expression. He stressed that Demir was not under orders from the (PKK) and that her articles should be viewed as reporting and not as acts of propaganda. She was sentenced on 30 December 2010, under Article 314 of the Turkish criminal code and Article 7 paragraph 2 of the anti-terror law (LAT), to 18 months in jail for each one of 84 articles written between 2008 and 2009. Reporters Without Borders repeats its condemnation of Turkey’s abusive and insane use of the anti-terrorist law. The newspaper Azadyia Welat has already been suspended eight times by the Turkish justice system. At least nine of its journalists are currently in prison, including two other former editors, sentenced on similar charges to those against Demir, to unbelievable sentences. Vedat Kursun was sentenced on 13 May 2010 to 166 years in prison. Ozan Kilinç was sentenced in his absence on 9 February to 2010 to 21 years in prison. He was also stripped of his civic rights. The three ex editors have now been sentenced to a total of 325 years in prison between them.This judicial harassment of the country’s sole Kurdish-language newspaper contrasts with political statements in support of openness towards the Kurdish minority that have been made since 2009. The Kurdish question remains taboo and is used as a pretext for legal proceedings against too many media and journalists in Turkey. Editor of the newspaper Hawar and Aram Publishing owner, Bedri Adanir, faces 50 years in jail for publishing articles about the PKK and publication of books collecting defence arguments at the ruling on the trial of PKK leader, Abdullah Öcalan, before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). The trial of Adanir, in custody since 5 January 2010, is to resume on 3 March 2011.Journalist Berivan Eker, former editor of Renge Heviya Jine, is also at risk of a 21-year jail sentence. She was arrested on 5 December 2010 and charged with “membership of the PKK” and making “propaganda for the organisation”. Her trial is due to open on 25 January 2011. The prosecutor argues that she committed an offence in the name of the organisation even if she is not actually a member of it. This shows yet again the misuse of the anti-terror law, the content of which is already reprehensible. This unfairness has moreover been at least half admitted through the release of journalist Erdal Güler, former editor of the daily Devrimci Demokrasi. The Istanbul appeal court on 26 October ruled that he had not been informed of the sentence against him in 2007 in conformity with the law. Even though this release should be widely welcomed, it illustrates the dissensions within Turkey’s judicial apparatus when the law is hijacked for political reasons. Reporters Without Borders calls on the appeal court in Diyarbakir to cancel the arrest warrant against Emin Demir and on the appeal court to reject the iniquitous and disproportionate sentence against the journalist. The organisation repeats its call for amendments to the anti-terror law and for the release of Berivan Eker, Bedri Adanir, Vedat Kursun, Ozan Kilinç and all the other journalists imprisoned under this law for their work as journalists.

(NASDAQ : EVBG), le leader international de la gestion d’événements critiques ( CEM ), a annoncé aujourd’hui que le Groupe Röchling, un leader mondial de la fabrication de plastiques, adoptera sa solution de CEM, qui contribuera ainsi à protéger les effectifs du groupe et à garantir le maintien de son activité commerciale en cas d’incidents graves de toutes sortes, y compris dans le cadre de la pandémie actuelle de COVID-19. La CEM d’Everbridge offre à Röchling une plateforme opérationnelle commune et unifiée destinée à gérer les risques organisationnels et à accélérer les communications, l’intervention et les efforts de récupération dans le but d’atténuer les interruptions d’activité et d’opérations IT et l’impact des incidents sur les travailleurs. Basé dans la ville allemande de Mannheim, le Groupe Röchling compte 11 500 employés répartis sur 90 sites dans 25 pays. Ses trois secteurs d’activité, « Industrial », « Automotive » et « Medical », ont généré un chiffre d’affaires annuel de 2,352 milliards d’euros en 2019. La société de près de 200 ans transforme le quotidien d’un grand nombre de personnes depuis près d’un siècle grâce à ses plastiques développés pour répondre aux besoins spécifiques des clients, que ce soit en allégeant les voitures, en rendant les emballages de médicaments plus sûrs ou en améliorant les applications industrielles. « Le Groupe Röchling s’engage en faveur de la sécurité de ses effectifs internationaux, de la préservation de ses actifs d’entreprise et du maintien de ses opérations IT », a déclaré Klaus-Peter Fett, directeur de l’information et de la stratégie numérique chez Röchling. « La plateforme CEM d’Everbridge constitue une solution unique dans sa capacité à nous aider à transformer les programmes de gestion du risque, de la santé et de la sécurité d’entreprise de Röchling par voie numérique, sous la forme d’une plateforme unifiée permettant de gérer tous les risques potentiels. Dans les conditions actuelles, Everbridge nous propose une approche proactive de la gestion du risque, de la sécurité des travailleurs et de la continuité des opérations. » Pour atteindre son objectif, à savoir garantir la sécurité et la productivité des travailleurs locaux, des télétravailleurs et des travailleurs en déplacement, ainsi que la résilience organisationnelle et la continuité des opérations, Röchling souhaitait une solution qui permettrait à son équipe responsable de la sécurité de mieux visualiser, anticiper et gérer les perturbations, les interruptions informatiques et les événements à risque. La CEM d’Everbridge donne la possibilité à Röchling de fusionner et d’afficher de solides sources de données relatives à ses actifs organisationnels (travailleurs, travailleurs en déplacement, bâtiments) et aux événements à risque (pandémie mondiale, terrorisme, catastrophes naturelles, conditions météorologiques, risques sanitaires) pour obtenir un récapitulatif global et visuel de la situation opérationnelle, ce qui permettra à l’entreprise de transformer par voie numérique la façon dont elle évalue les menaces, y apporte une réponse coordonnée et évite les coûts et les effets sur la sécurité des personnes tout en assurant le maintien des opérations et la croissance malgré les risques. « Vu la recrudescence d’événements critiques tels que la pandémie de COVID-19, nous sommes fiers de soutenir Röchling et leurs efforts de retour au travail présentiel en plus de les aider à optimiser leur temps de réaction moyen en cas de perturbations informatiques ou commerciales », a affirmé Javier Colado, vice-président directeur d’Everbridge à l’international. « Nous nous engageons à fournir une plateforme de gestion des événements critiques fiable, sécurisée et innovante, permettant de préserver la sécurité de l’entreprise et donnant la possibilité aux leaders de la résilience de garantir valeur et sécurité à leurs équipes présentes partout dans le monde. » Plus de 5 400 organisations commerciales, gouvernementales et de soins de santé font actuellement confiance à la plateforme CEM d’Everbridge pour évaluer les menaces, surveiller le bien-être de leurs effectifs, communiquer rapidement des mises en garde, protéger leurs actifs et accélérer l’analyse de leur réponse opérationnelle. « En tant que fabricant international de plastiques leader du secteur, le Groupe Röchling symbolise une étape très importante pour nous en termes d’adoption continue de notre plateforme CEM dans les pays germanophones », a ajouté Andreas Junck, directeur général d’Everbridge pour la région DACH. « Je me réjouis de collaborer avec Röchling, un acteur d’envergure internationale et champion du secteur, pouvant se targuer de près de 200 ans d’histoire et de réussite en Allemagne et dans le monde entier. » Leader mondial de la gestion d’événements critiques et des avertissements publics, Everbridge et sa plateforme sont au service de plus de 650 millions de personnes dans le monde, ainsi que d’entreprises de premier plan figurant au classement Fortune 500, de villes, d’État s, et de pays entiers.
