Every three months, a group comes together to review membership of the FTSE 100 index. If a Footsie member has fallen to below 110th in the size rankings, then it is ejected from the index. Likewise, if a listed company has risen to 90th or above, then it enters the FTSE 100. Thus, over its 36-year history, the index has changed and evolved to reflect more accurately the wider UK stock market.The FTSE 100’s newbieUsually, these quarterly reshuffles are pretty mundane, with outcomes usually obvious well in advance. But the next reshuffle — on Friday, 18 December — is rather exciting. That’s because the newest FTSE 100 member is a controversial hedge fund run by Bill Ackman, an outspoken American billionaire.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…The newest FTSE 100 share is Pershing Square Holdings (LSE: PSH), a Guernsey-registered investment trust whose stock tracks the Pershing Square Capital Management hedge fund. In the low-key, secretive world of hedge funds, Ackman is a flamboyant activist and fundamental investor. He makes huge conviction bets that often pay off spectacularly — or fail miserably. For me, Ackman is a wild man who rolls the dice hard in order to generate ‘alpha’ (market-beating) returns.Bill Ackman’s wildest betsAckman founded Pershing Square Capital Management in 2003. From the beginning, he made outsized bets on lowly valued US corporations. One high-profile investment was Ackman’s huge position in controversial drugmaker Valeant Pharmaceuticals. When Valeant’s stock collapsed following regulatory investigations and lawsuits into price-gouging, Ackman’s fund may have lost over $2.8bn on this trade. That’s a lot livelier than the typical FTSE 100 stock.Ackman also waged a long war against the multi-level-marketing practices of Herbalife Nutrition, a US-based seller of nutritional supplements. Ackman alleged Herbalife was a ‘pyramid scheme’ and, by shorting Herbalife stock, aimed to profit from falls in its share price. Rival billionaire investor Carl Icahn took the opposing view, becoming a major shareholder in Herbalife. In 2014, Herbalife’s share price almost halved, thanks to intensive public campaigning by Ackman.Foreseeing the economic carnage to come from Covid-19, he bought $27m of credit-protection products just before the March meltdown. Around a month later, he sold out for $2.6bn, whilst warning that “Hell is coming”. In other words, Ackman made almost 100 times his money in four weeks. He then reinvested this windfall into cheap shares. Wow. But is PSH a suitable vehicle for inclusion in the FTSE 100?I’d buy Pershing Square sharesAfter a market-beating 2020 (the fund made a 62.8% gain to end-November), Ackman now manages $17bn of assets and has a $2bn personal fortune. I’ll admit that I’m a fan of ‘Wild’ Bill Ackman and his willingness to “make a bold call that nobody believes in”. His contrarian and activist style of investing appeals to me, as does the fact that his fund also gained 58.1% in 2019 (and after big losses in some years).As I write, the PSH share price is 2,490p, just below its 2020 high of 2,559.85p on 1 December. This values the trust at just over £3.1bn. It’s also 2.2 times the 1,122p the low on 23 March. This newly minted FTSE 100 stock has soared by nearly four-fifths, leaping 79.7% in 12 months. Yet it trades at a discount of nearly a quarter (24.9%) to its underlying net asset value (NAV). To me, that’s far too wide a gap, so I would happily back Bill Ackman by buying this share today!

By using and adding to the greenery of Aarhus, Valdemars Have seeks to be an oasis within the city and serve as a public, urban garden.

The use and balance of elements like windows and balconies create a “playful and vivid appearance without the use of traditional ornamentation.” The brick transitions from light red to almost black, and a green façade “enhances the experience of a building ‘planted’ within a garden,” the landscape elements lending character and identity to the building. The ivy-covered brick of a nearby school creates connections to the residential block, subtly defining its context.Save this picture!Aerial Rendered View.

Toward the neighbouring street, Valdemarsgade and the former military hospital, the building lowers to four levels, while in other areas it has six stories. The layout ensures optimal daylight penetration. Existing paths along the north are replaced with promenades, encouraging public circulation between Valdemarsgade and Lønvejen.A variety of plants and flowers will create garden-like, public outdoor areas. The biodiversity and micro-climate created will ensure residents enjoy peaceful common areas and experience nature in the city.ArchitectsSchmidt Hammer Lassen ArchitectsLocationAarhus, DenmarkClientCASA Finans A/SArea12000.0 sqmProject Year2016PhotographsCourtesy of schmidt hammer lassen architectsLocationAarhus, DenmarkProject Year2016Photographsschmidt hammer lassen architectsArea12000.0 m2AD Interviews: Vo Trong Nghia / Chicago Architecture BiennialInterviewsRun Colors Warsaw / mode:lina architekciSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Aarhus, DenmarkLocation to be used only as a reference.

Sustainability on campus shows progress but has further to go

Previous articlePost opting out of campus carry, TCU students maintain gun cultureNext articleHoward, Frogs complete sweep of Oklahoma State with 5-1 win Madison Fowler RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Linkedin printThrough a spring 2016 TCU community survey more than half of the students indicated that they don’t think TCU has an effective recycling program.This survey on how to improve recycling was conducted by Wendy Macias, an associate professor of advertising who is involved in ad-hoc university committee on TCU and the environment.The survey results from students, faculty and staff about their opinions of TCU’s sustainability plan. “TCU is greener than you think,” said Chris Honkomp, assistant vice-chancellor for facilities. “We do a lot of invisible projects that we don’t get credit for.”The Physical Plant team is responsible for making upgrades and improvements to campus buildings, landscaping and maintenance practices in order to make TCU more efficient and sustainable.Last November, the Physical Plant purchased 50 new recycling bins for $70,000, Honkomp said.“We spend more money than other universities with a similar size and make-up,” he said. “But it’s worth it because it’s the right thing to do.” With 20 years of experience in energy management, Honkomp said the behavior change is the hardest part.“Recycling is the toughest to implement because it includes participation and cooperation,” he said.Macias said the additional bins are just beginning to make progress in recycling.“Part of the problem is not having a recycling bin next to each trash can,” she said.Honkomp said many students are unaware that TCU participates in the “Green” building effort through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program administered through the United States Green Building Council.  The new construction standard plans to exceed the silver level in the Greek Village, School of Music, College of Fine Arts and Neeley School of Business, meaning these buildings are more energy efficient, he said.According to Honkomp, invisible sustainability projects that don’t require student cooperation include:The new street lighting system that uses 1/10 of conventional energyAn energy efficient central AC chiller plant rather than a unit in each buildingLand evaporation weather coil moisture that tells sprinklers when and when not to runMore drought tolerant plants, native trees and grasses help conserve the water usageMonitoring water use in residential halls and buildingsReplacing the shower heads and sinks with flow heads that help conserve waterPerforming tests to observe which bins are not being used as much to consider relocating or labelingTCU has formed an ad-hoc sustainability committee to research what the university has accomplished in sustainability and make recommendations for future actions.“They likely recommend the need for an official sustainability coordinator, as TCU is one of the few that does not dedicate staff to address sustainability on campus”, said Keith Whitworth, a sociology instructor who specializes in sustainability and the social impacts of technology.Honkomp said there is no central office or program coordinator, which makes efforts harder.“We need the website, articles and advertisements up to date to communicate so students know the efforts and feel better,” he said. “This is part of the problem of not having a program coordinator.”Macias agreed. “TCU has a long way to go in the being green area by elevating awareness of our current sustainability wins and fails if more resources could be allocated to sustainability,” she said. “A coordinator could help sustainability be sustainable.”Christian Nguyen, ROXO’s account executive, explained the agency’s involvement as a goal to raise awareness to students.“The challenge is to make things convenient and visible, as a lot of the sustainability plan is invisible,” he said. He added that ROXO works to revamp ideas and are involved in planning a sustainability awareness event after spring break.Honkomp revealed the possible next steps for sustainability on campus:Collect compost materials of food waste from Brown-Lupton University UnionPut energy solar panels on the parking garages and University Recreation CenterEngage in aggressive recycling for a zero-waste game day ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitterlast_img read more

Conaway says he’s still ready to serve

first_img Mike Conaway, R-Midland Pinterest Landgraf prepares for state budget debate Leading the U.S. House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of possible Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway says he expects the report will confirm that the Russian government tried to influence the outcome in favor of President Trump but that its efforts didn’t change any actual vote results.In an interview with the OA Editorial Board, the Midland Republican said investigators “are running out of people to interview” and will issue their report “sooner rather than later.“The American people are tired of this investigation,” he said. “They just want to know what happened. We will issue a classified version for all members of Congress and then it will be declassified in the executive branch, which could take two weeks or a month. It will make some people mad and some happy.”Adding that he will release the transcripts of interviews and other data along with findings and recommendations, Conaway said he is “trying to use as few adjectives as I can to say, ‘Here’s what happened.’”“It’s clear from public testimony, Facebook and Twitter that the Russians attempted to affect the election by sowing discord and convincing folks to vote a certain way,” he said. “I’m pretty confident that they did not affect vote tallies.”He said the states “are very jealous about the whole process,” but they may have to accept national reforms to circumvent future disruptions like seeing voters’ registration rolls scrambled by foreign computer hackers on election days.Asked his view of partisan bitterness in Washington, Conaway said it has not weakened his dedication, but the vitriol is disturbing. “The House is downstream from the American people, so all that stuff is reflective of what’s going on back home,” he said.“You cannot govern from either edge, the hard right or the hard left. America is a center-right country, but all the public discourse is at the extremes. The talking heads wake up each morning and ask how they can make people mad and get their ratings up.”Becoming emotional, Conaway said, “I love the House.”“Every time I see one of my buddies do something that’s embarrassing the institution, I say, ‘Stop doing those things. . .’”Conaway said he has not suffered any ill effects from having been one of the representatives targeted during a June 14 mass shooting last year at an Alexandria, Va., ballpark.Having seen a fellow congressman, a lobbyist, an aide, a policewoman and the gunman shot, the gunman fatally, Conaway saw a counselor to ascertain that he was OK. “I’m pretty good about compartmentalizing and was just going on about my life,” he said.“The lady said, ‘You don’t have any symptoms.’ One reaction I didn’t anticipate was my wife Suzanne’s. I had left a message on her cell phone that early morning in Midland that everything was over and I was fine. I met her at the airport in Dallas, and she ran and jumped into my arms and held on and held on.”As chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, Conaway said the committee’s 110 hearings around the nation in the past three years have laid the groundwork for the 2018 Farm Bill to be approved by the House and Senate and signed by the president by the Sept. 30 deadline.He said any SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) reforms will depend on a funding analysis by the Congressional Budget Office.Conaway also wants to reauthorize the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and restore Title 1 supports to cotton and milk, he said.Conaway is up for re-election and will face Paul Myers of Midland in the Republican primary in March and then either Eric Pfalzgraf of Odessa or Jennie Lou Leeder of Llano in November.

Previous: Top 5 Markets for First-time Homebuyers Next: Fair Housing Update: Facebook and Citibank Address Discrimination Accusations On Tuesday, The MReport and VRM Mortgage Services hosted a webinar titled “Diversity: Why is it Good for Business?”. Industry experts spoke on why diversity and inclusion is good for business, while discussing myths about diversity and inclusion and teaching listeners how to implement an effective diversity strategy for their business. The webinar featured a series of questions for its expert panel to answer and discuss.Speakers during the webinar, moderated by Ben Weber, Director of Human Resources and Training at VRM Mortgage Services, included Charmaine Brown, Director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at Fannie Mae; Dr. Cheryl Travis-Johnson, EVP and Chief Operating Officer at VRM Mortgage Services; Tujuanna Williams, CEO at Williams Consulting LLC; and Phyllis Wright, SVP of HR Strategies at VRM Mortgage Services.What does make multiculturalism and diversity so important for business? According to Charmaine Brown, a multicultural mindset enhances understanding and leadership skills.“Increasing your cultural competency will ultimately allow you to be a much more inclusive and successful leader,” said Brown.According to Phyllis Wright, “inclusion is the key to getting the best results.”“To include means to be a part of, and usually means to be part of something bigger than yourself,” said Wright.“You cannot have diversity without inclusion,” Wright added in her closing remarks. Additionally, Wright noted that diversity and inclusion, without proper leverage, cannot function within a business.“Diversity and inclusion needs to be seamless to the business,” she added.Dr. Cheryl Travis-Johnson also noted how neglecting multiculturalism can lead to ineffective marketing and bad business outcomes. According to Dr. Travis-Johnson, leaders need to evaluate their teams to ensure the best economic outcome with diversity.“Diversity and inclusion is a business imperative,” said Brown in her closing remarks. “But the wrong takeaway would be if its only important to the extent that it makes you profitable. It’s also the right thing to do.”Register and listen to the complete recording of the webinar here.
