Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. In these tough times, investors have been turning to gold. It’s a centuries-old haven for preserving value, so that’s really not surprising. And the price of the shiny yellow stuff has reached record levels as a result. At the time of writing, an ounce is selling for $1,970, significantly ahead of the peak reached in late 2011. Bitcoin has been on a run too, but nowhere near as impressively as gold.If cryptocurrencies provided as dependable a hedge against tangible asset volatility as the enthusiasts claim, we’d surely have seen better progress. At a little over $11,000 per coin, Bitcoin hasn’t even regained the levels it was at a year ago. And it’s still some way below its highest ever price of close to $20,000. I have to admit today’s price is higher than I’d ever thought it would reach again – but like everyone else, I wasn’t expecting a pandemic-led stock market crash either.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…Safe havensSo yes, I think it’s undeniable that Bitcoin has provided something of a relatively safe haven against the Covid-19 crisis. But it’s been far less desirable than gold. When it comes to short-term worries, it seems investors turn to assets that have been tried and tested for generations. New upstart alternatives appear to attract a lot less confidence.I can see the Bitcoin surge declining a lot quicker too. Gold could well remain high for a relatively long time yet, especially if we end up with a double-dip stock market crash. And the more time goes on, the more I see that as likely. I just don’t think most investors yet understand the full horror of the economic crisis that’s unfolding.Gold or Bitcoin?Would I invest in gold or Bitcoin as a hedge against hard times? I’d buy neither. I’d avoid Bitcoin because it’s over-hyped nonsense. For shunning gold, I have a number of reasons. There’s no way to put any kind of fundamental valuation on gold, when the price is decided purely on psychological considerations. It’s not like stock market shares, where we can relate prices to the profits made by companies. Gold also doesn’t actually generate any wealth, unlike companies which are steadily creating new wealth year in, year out.Stocks insteadBut I see gold mining stocks in a different light. While people are prepared to buy the gold, gold miners can create wealth for their shareholders and pay real cash dividends. A gold miner’s share price will vary as the gold price goes up and down. But unlike the metal itself, a miner will still typically make profits when the price is falling. What you need is a decent buffer between the market price of gold and the company’s costs of producing the stuff, and you should be laughing. I wouldn’t buy Bitcoin miners, though.

This little home is called ‘The Roof House’ and it is located in Lat Phrao’s area. It is an extension of the old house that is located nearby.

Moreover, the Roof House performs as a common area that gathers a variety of family members’ activities; for example, being relaxing area, guest area, piano lesson area for Saturday and Sunday activities and playground for the dog.Save this picture!© Varp StudioDue to the limited budget and limited space, Looklen Architects designed the layout to be an open plan to connect all functions as one area. Also, this design creates multipurpose functions for future usage. The bordering of an existing tree, which is located in the middle of the land, forms a courtyard in the middle of the house.Save this picture!© Varp StudioThe central courtyard is also a focus point of each house functions. Additionally, it causes an airy space that connect to the outside. Still, it provides privacy to the house by using elements of large walls, at the front of the house, that bend towards each other. The Roof House’s character is Tropical inspired.Save this picture!© Varp StudioSave this picture!© Varp StudioThe roof is designed to be a hip roof, where it has a hole in the middle to create airy space for the house and provide shade for the other areas by its long eaves. The main structure is made from steel; making the house light weighted. The front is the most open space of the house which is built by wide span structure of a 14-meter long. Beside tilted wall is intended to compatible with the middle courtyard. This is to construct interesting perspective when entering into the house.Save this picture!© Varp StudioAn architect intent to unite the house structure and its space to be as one element by the connection of roof’s angle and inside ceiling. The architect also uses wood as a primary material because it generates a warm atmosphere and decreases echo.Furthermore, the connected wood ceiling bonds inside-area with outside-area.Save this picture!© Varp StudioSave this picture!SectionThe architect enhances a homely environment by installing up light along the roof’s side. From the outside perspective, there is a lath fence that acts as the house’s double façade; to build privacy for the Roof House. Though, the neighborhoods are able to appreciate an open space and green area.Save this picture!© Varp StudioWhen designing the Roof House, the architect also considers energy saving by adopting passive design method to be harmonious with an atmosphere. The architect detaches one side of the hip roof (North side) to allow more wind and sunlight passing through the courtyard. There are 5-meter windows the face towards the North and the East allow the house to be lighted all day long. Moreover, long-sliding partitions allow wind to flow through the house.

Journalist reimprisoned after a week of freedom, held with ordinary detainees

first_img Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of journalist Massoud Bastani, who was reimprisoned a week after his release on 6 August from Evin prison in Tehran and is being held in Arak prison, in the centre of the country, which is normally used for non-political prisoners. Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of journalist Massoud Bastani, who was reimprisoned a week after his release on 6 August from Evin prison in Tehran and is being held in Arak prison, in the centre of the country, which is normally used for non-political prisoners. Bastani had spent two weeks in Evin prison for covering a demonstration in support of imprisoned fellow journalist Akbar Ganji, who was on hunger strike at the time.“It is shocking that a prisoner of conscience has been put with inmates held for ordinary crimes, as some of them could be dangerous or sick,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is also unacceptable that a journalist is being punished just for supporting a colleague who was on hunger strike, and we call on the judicial authorities in Arak to stop harassing him.”The editor of Nedai Eslahat (a daily that was closed by the authorities in 2003) and a contributor to such pro-reform newspapers as Etemad, Toseeh and Joumhoryat, Bastani first run-in with the authorities was in 2003, when he was sentenced to six months in prison, 70 lashes and a five-year ban on practising journalism.He wrote many reports about Ganji’s hunger strike this summer. In a 27 June release, Reporters Without Borders had commented that: “The authorities are not only content to let Akbar Ganji die, they are also arresting and harassing those who have the courage to defend him.”Ganji’s wife, Massoumeh Shaffii, meanwhile told Reporters Without Borders by phone that she has just sent a letter to UN secretary-general Kofi Annan to coincide with the Iranian president’s visit to New York for the UN summit. Thanking Annan for requesting Ganji’s release, the letter informs him that Ganji was returned to prison on 3 September and that he is still not being allowed to receive visits.

The searched was ordered by Perugia province prosecutor Dario Razzi in response to a complaint by a judge, Maria Bice Barborini, accusing Chiocci and the newspaper’s editor, Maurizio Blepietro, of libel and violating the confidentiality of a judicial investigation.”This search and these seizures are unacceptable in a democratic society and constitute a serious violation of the confidentiality of sources,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “The protection of journalists’ sources is one of the essential conditions of press freedom and this is often stressed by the European Court of Human Rights,” he said.In a ruling on 25 February (Roemen and Schmit v. Luxembourg), the European court of Human Rights said searches of a journalist’s home or professional premises were contrary to article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights if there was no “pressing social need.” The case was similar to the Il Giornale one, involving searches carried out because of an alleged violation of professional secrecy.The Telekom Serbia scandal erupted two years ago. European Commission president Romano Prodi, Democrats of the Left party leader Piero Fassino and former foreign minister Lamberto Dini were accused of taking kickbacks in the acquisition by Telecom Italia of 29 per cent in Telekom Serbia in 1997, when Prodi was prime minister. The purchase resulted in a loss of more than 500 billion lire.Chiocci was one of the first journalists to interview the source of this allegation, financial adviser Igor Marini, and he has already been questioned about it by the Turin prosecutor. Marini told Il Giornale that judge Barborini had ordered him not to talk about the Telekom Serbia case or he would “get them all killed. After the newspaper ran this story, Barborini lodged a complaint against Marini with the Perugia prosecutor.The violation of judicial secrecy of which Il Giornale is accused concerns a deposition which Marini made to Swiss judges. Many Italian newspapers are investigating the Telekom Serbia case. The daily La Repubblica recently published documents purportedly demonstrating that Marini is an imposter and that the entire scandal was fabricated by the right. A journalist with the weekly L’Espresso, owned by the same group as La Repubblica, was also the target of a search on 1 October.

Rep. Chu Statement in Support of Continued Negotiations with Iran

first_img Subscribe 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it On Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry announced a 7-month extension of the Western-led negotiations to end Iran’s nuclear program. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement:“The need for an extension in negotiations with Iran is disappointing, but not discouraging. While talks are delayed, they are continuing. This is critical in our efforts to end the threat of an Iranian nuclear program. So long as the diplomatic process continues, international inspectors will be allowed on the ground in a way that offers us unprecedented access to Iranian nuclear facilities. Inspections remain vital and would be impossible without negotiations. Further, the extension continues the temporary halt on Iranian enrichment of uranium which freezes the program in place. Stopping negotiations would undo all of this progress, remove inspectors from the ground, and allow Iran to resume enrichment and construction. That is why I am committed to ensuring that the U.S. government remains supportive of diplomacy, allowing negotiators to continue to the end of this difficult but significantly important process.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
