The International Air Transport Association estimates revenue losses to the industry of $252bn globally. This is a 44% drop versus 2019 figures. The Ryanair (LSE:RYA) share price has reacted to this by dropping around 33% since the start of the year. I think whether the shares will take-off from this point depends on three critical factors.Liquidity positionBig competitor easyJet has said that it could potentially run out of cash in August unless it scraps new plane orders. Ryanair, however, is much better placed. It currently has €4bn in cash. This is enough to last for 18 months, even if no planes fly. This definitely gives it some breathing room, however it’s needed. Some analysts have predicted that air traffic will not reach pre-crisis levels until mid-2021. Therefore, whilst I think it should have enough capital to survive, it might not be a comfortable journey.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…Return of demandThe Ryanair share price is clearly linked to how quickly aviation demand returns. When this will happen is anyone’s guess. It is possible that there is a lot of pent-up demand, with most countries having spent months in lockdown. If oil prices stay low, this may also enhance the ability of the airlines to offer cheap flights. This is something Ryanair is very good at. In fact, the average fare has dropped from £47 in 2015, to £37 in 2019. Ryanair has also expanded its fleet by 50% since 2015 to around 450 planes (fourth largest in Europe). Therefore, it should be ready to take advantage of any potential demand uptake.However, it is also possible that demand may return slowly, fuelled by coronavirus fears. This would clearly hurt RYA’s profits in the short-term and therefore the Ryanair share price.Competitive advantage sustainabilityIf demand does return and Ryanair has survived this crisis, will it be able to maintain its competitive advantage? Ryanair’s strategy to date has been one of cost leadership. I believe that it will continue to pursue this, even after the crisis is over. All those extra bag charges and cramped seats may annoy customers, but this – along with a razor-sharp focus on expenses – has enabled its current capital position. Therefore, why would it change strategy? It has succeeded in a fiercely competitive market.Additionally, if some its competitors do go out of business, it may lead to a less competitive market. This would help Ryanair sustain or increase its market share.It is also worth noting that 32% of its €7.7bn of revenues comes from ancillary sources (hotel bookings, etc). I think this additional diversification should position it well post-crisis.In conclusion, lift-off may be too strong of a phrase for the Ryanair share price, but in the long term I think it will have a safe landing. Additionally, at a price-to-earnings ratio of 10.3 (12 for the industry), it may be good value. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

It’s not all that radical. Our unease with the subject of evangelism simply skews what most of us can do quite well in other conversations. Listening well to others, attempting to understand their perspective and communicating in a coherent manner–these are practices we are accustomed to.There are other things you may have noticed about these posts. I work from the assumption that we are interested in relationships with others. Relationships take time. We are all put off by utilitarian efforts at relationships. We can’t expect anything less from others.At the beginning of this blog series I mentioned the cost-effectiveness, or lack thereof, of evangelism in the west. Part of this problem comes from counting the wrong things. What we need to value is often hard to measure. Nonetheless, conversations are something we ought to be counting. And we ought to share with each other, more frequently, of our opportunities to tell and listen to the stories of God at work in our lives. Boiling evangelism down to conversion experiences is short-sighted. We’re called to make disciples, not simply converts, and that takes a lifetime.Every time I travel for work, I cherish the last few moments I have with my family. Those last few words and touches before I get on a plane are precious. They are what I hang on to until we are reunited. Imagine what was like for Jesus before he left those friends he had spent his last three years with. They had laughed and cried together. They had experienced an incredible adventure together, spending almost every waking hour in each other’s company. Then, at the end of his post-resurrection time with these friends, he would ascend into heaven. He knew his last words with them would matter. And they would cement each word in their memories.What does he say to them? In the Gospel of Matthew, we call it the “great commission.” It is the passage in which Jesus tells his closest friends to go and make disciples. Many theologians have argued that a more appropriate interpretation of Jesus’ words would be, “In your going…” That is to say, as you go about your everyday business of life, make apprentices of Jesus.

Because he embodies the good news of heaven. He became God with us. For some, the idea of Jesus as God feels like a stretch. It’s part of the reason why some resist the idea of evangelism. People have often debated whether Jesus intended to say he was God. I’d argue that you can set this worry aside. One thing that is clear in the Gospels is that Jesus said, “Follow me.” And he was called “Lord” by those who did, even though this was a title reserved for Caesar (the king).Few would debate that Jesus was clearly onto something. Even those that have not called themselves Christians, like Mahatma Gandhi, have acknowledged Jesus’ profundity and incredible example. Can you follow the way of Jesus? Can you consider him your leader? If you can, do that and let the rest take care of itself. As Billy Graham once said, “It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s job to judge and my job to love.” The pressure’s off. I would not encourage you take on the practice of those that have smeared the term “evangelism.” Yet, they will continue to be those that define it for the rest of the world until we reclaim the practice for ourselves. You are invited to share your story of God’s goodness in your life. You are invited to listen to the stories of others and celebrate God’s goodness in their lives. You are invited to tell the story of your faith community where Jesus’ apprentices learn how to live in the world through an ancient–future lens. You are invited on a journey that will transform you as much as others. You are invited to follow Jesus.

58 Housing Units in Boulogne-Billancourt / LAN Architecture

Architecture of the crisis. This project, for which the competition occurred in 2008, is the result of a complex transformation process in the city along with a precise economic context. Located on the former site of the Renault factories in Boulogne-Billancourt, the concerned project is part of the Trapèze Ouest, one of the sector of the operation Ile Seguin-Rives de Seine, amongst the most important emerging centres in Ile-de-France. Save this picture!© Julien LanooRecommended ProductsSkylightsLAMILUXFlat Roof Exit Comfort DuoSkylightsKalwall®Skyroofs® – Specialty Skyroof® ApplicationsSkylightsLibartSolaGlide Inclined Retractable SkylightSkylightsJansenRoof Glazing – VISSIt consists of a new mixed use neighbourhood, residential and dynamic altogether, at the cutting edge in sustainable development. Each block of the Trapèze is the object of an architectural amalgam of high level. The harmony between open-market and social housing, offices, green spaces, commercial premises and public facilities, along with the ambitious cultural vocation of the Ile Seguin, are all elements that contribute to creating an exceptionnel living space on the immediate west side of Paris. Save this picture!© Julien LanooIn this territory, public and private interests are evidently bound to cross. The segregation of disciplines omnipresent in the french system is antagonistic to this approach and it is manifested in the clear separation between the practices of urban planning and design, architecture, landscaping and project management. Save this picture!© Julien LanooCertainly, collaboration is existent, but the large number and diversity of participants causes a normalized rarity in the points of intersection between the many different visions. A programme and volumes rigorously defined, diminished costs of construction, the hit of an economic crisis, a private real estate system that isolates the site designer, strict certification labels… this abruptly depicted a reality, that any idea, vision or architecture is one day bound to face. Save this picture!© Julien LanooImagining an object of resistance. The first step of our work consisted in drawing from this hostile context a fruitful questioning: « In a framework where the ability of the architect is knowingly limited and in a context where economic conditions are uncertain, how to imagine an architecture capable of resisting disruptive change? That can reassure in moments of instability? And face situations of crisis? An architecture that can justify itself by itself and in any moment? What would then be the cardinal values on which to base our intervention? ». Save this picture!© Julien LanooIn difficult moments, one must return to fundamentals and choices are narrowed: it is simply survival instinct. With this projects we decided to face the most challenging scenarios from the very first sketch. In this operation we have let aside exhaustive studies on urbanity and potential grabbing –costly and previously explored methods at the agency–, to pivot back around an essential postulate: a space exists only if it is built. Save this picture!© Julien LanooSimplification, substraction and timeless values drew the three guidelines for 70° Sud, whose name was chosen by the client’s Marketing team. Simplification: from a technical point of view, a way to reduce cost. A single detail drives the wholeness of the project: window–corridor-–railing. Within this ensemble, we can also include solar protections and openings. Substraction: the structure becomes façade, exposed concrete, no superfluous elements, no gratuitous ornement. Save this picture!© Julien LanooTimeless values: to attract people, the strategy put into place is found upon incontestable building qualities: light, orientation, views and organization. If each individual is allowed to act upon his dwelling in regards to his own taste and needs, the fundamentals that make for quality are, in this building, unchangingly insured. Save this picture!drawingExtracts from the memoire of the competition The project suggests a built form that is simple and readable. The South and East façades are punctuated by multiple larges openings, extending the interior of the dwellings to exterior corridors running along the building. Larger balconies are inserted at intervals in the line of the terraces, projecting out. Save this picture!elevation 01The juxtaposition of protruding, punctual and linear elements give the impression of a slender and lighter building onto Yves Kermen and Emile Zola streets. The building fulfills its role as a corner element and provides a clear distinction from the surrounding buildings. Plays with solids and voids, horizontals and verticals, light and shadow, glass and curtains, give the façade both sobriety and animation. To the simplicity of the drawing is added the richness of the material. We have sought for a finish that is clean, shaven and refined but rich enough to reflect light, and communicate with the colours of its environment.Save this picture!© Julien LanooProject gallerySee allShow lessHanok Garden / Y Design OfficeArticlesUpdate: Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and CultureArticlesProject locationAddress:Boulogne-Billancourt, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Located just inside the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Pumphouse Point was originally constructed as part of Tasmania’s hydro electric scheme and has been unused for over twenty years before being redeveloped. Save this picture!© Adam GibsonThe redevelopment, which has already become a signature project for Tasmanian tourism, involved the adaptive reuse and refurbishment of two existing, heritage listed, off-form concrete art deco buildings – ‘The Pumphouse’ and ‘The Shorehouse’ – into a wilderness retreat. Save this picture!SectionThe Pumphouse, a three storey building originally constructed in the 1940s to house pump turbines, sits on Lake St Clair at the end of a 250m concrete flume which is its only connection to land.  The Shorehouse, located at the start of the flume on the edge of the lake, was constructed at the same time and accommodated offices and a maintenance workshop for the turbines.  Eighteen new guest suites have been inserted within the existing concrete building envelopes – twelve of these are located in The Pumphouse and the remaining six are within The Shorehouse.  The Shorehouse also accommodates the prep kitchen and main communal lounge / dining room.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonOnly minimal work has been done to the exterior of the buildings.  This is a deliberate response to maintain the high heritage value of the existing buildings and to emphasise the contrast between the new interiors and the exterior – their distressed condition a testament to the harsh environment in which they are located. Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe approach to The Pumphouse building, surrounded by mountains and water, heightens the anticipation and sense of arrival.  Guests pass through solid metal doors into the entry foyer – an intermediate zone through which guests are brought gently into the comfort of the suites from the rawness of the wilderness outside.   The twelve studio-sized suites run lengthways down the two outer wings, leaving the central core devoted to communal lounge areas on each level, open at both ends so that the sight-line that begins from the flume continues through the building.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonA simple neutral palette has been used throughout in order to characterise a rugged simplicity and uncomplicated comfort into which the guests retreat.  The untreated rough-sawn hardwood and exposed servicing pipework of the entry and common spaces subtly give way to more refined Tasmanian timber veneer panelling and exposed bent copper plumbing in the suites.  These items also allude to the history of the place – the timber formwork of the off-form concrete and water once pumping through the core of the building.Save this picture!© Sharyn CairnsThe project has been achieved on an extremely tight budget in a remote location which required a large amount of site servicing and infrastructure.  Simple construction techniques were utilised and opportunities for standardisation and prefabrication sought through joinery and fittings.  Working within existing enclosures that were originally designed for very different functions, a large amount of effort was spent manipulating the internal spaces to balance private and common spaces..
