Rolls-Royce shares have had a roller-coaster 2020. They have tripled over the past few weeks. But they are still almost 50% down on the year so far.The stock remains far from where it sat last year, when it was above 300p. I have become more optimistic on the engine maker’s shares. Indeed, I am tempted to buy them. But I have a few doubts, which make me think there are likely better opportunities elsewhere.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…Rolls-Royce shares already have a lot of bad news factored inIt’s incredible to reflect that the shares fell as low as 35p in October. Clearly, the market has spent much of the year predicting various doomsday scenarios for the company. The jump in price since then has been a significant recovery. Nonetheless, the shares still trade far below where they started the year.That reflects a lot of expected bad news for the company. With air travel markedly reduced, the demand for engine purchase and maintenance has fallen a lot. Meanwhile, even before the pandemic, Rolls-Royce had struggled over a number of years to turn a profit consistently. Companies which don’t make profits consistently tend not to be the sort of great dividend picks many investors like. Rolls has held its dividend flat for some years. With its heavy debt, even a good business performance might not equate to better shareholder returns. So, while Rolls-Royce shares have recouped some of their losses, I believe they are still priced quite cheaply due to bad news such as this.2021 should bring positive momentumBut the outlook for the aircraft engine specialist may be better than the downbeat perception. Air cargo demand is high. I expect vaccination will accelerate the return of demand from airline passengers. The Trade body International Air Transport Association is forecasting 2021 passenger demand to be 50% higher than this year.I expect that the coming year will bring sustained momentum for Rolls-Royce. Air travel demand is set to stage at least a partial recovery. The cost savings of the company’s recently announced reorganization should start to show impact. With perceived positive news on multiple fronts, I expect an upward rerating of Rolls-Royce shares.Set against that, the newish management remains to be proven. Rolls-Royce still hasn’t demonstrated that it has a way to fix the profitability problems which have long plagued its business model. We also don’t yet know whether there will be a broader economic correction once the pandemic subsides. That could affect Rolls-Royce, whose performance relies heavily upon the broader trends of the global economy.I’d pass over Rolls-Royce shares for other opportunitiesSo while I do see upside potential and expect Rolls-Royce shares to gain value from here, I don’t anticipate them getting back to 300p soon. Although I would think about buying Rolls-Royce, I would prefer to invest in shares I felt had stronger upside potential in the coming months.While Rolls-Royce shares have positive momentum and drivers for further growth, the road ahead remains unpredictable. By contrast, some companies are firing on all cylinders and have a strong growth story. I would look for a company with those characteristics, currently lacking at Rolls-Royce.

Revolution and climate change

first_imgThe COP21 climate conference has ended, and the corporate media are begging us to believe that a breakthrough has occurred, even though there were many heavy hearts at the end of the meeting. “Despair” is probably too mild a word to describe the emotions expressed by many of the Indigenous peoples who attended. The Indigenous had hoped that the rich imperialist countries would set aside a small portion of the large amount they looted to assist island peoples and others who will have nowhere to go as glaciers melt and oceans rise during the rest of this century. The conference did nothing for them.What is being hyped as a great achievement is that anything at all was agreed upon, unlike in the previous 20 climate conferences that have taken place. Yes, a last-minute accord was arrived at that would — given its most favorable outcome — limit the rise in the earth’s temperature to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit in this century. But that would still mean devastating changes to the environment.And the accord agreed on is not binding. Even the U.S. corporate media note that for the U.S. to implement this agreement, it would take a vote in the Republican-dominated Senate — and most of the senators have already said they’d oppose it.Thousands of climate activists from around the world held a protest at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris as the conference ended. “We don’t like the COP21,” said one of them, Joseph Purugganan, who had come from the Philippines with other activists from a coalition called Focus on the Global South. “The message here is that the real solution will come from the people,” he said. “After 20 years of COPs, look at where we are.” (New York Times, Dec. 12)Most climate scientists agree, and some walked out in anger. Prominent among them was James Hansen, former head of NASA, who began warning of climate change almost three decades ago. However, his prescription, which was not even discussed in Paris, is to impose a “carbon tax” on the burning of fossil fuels. Wouldn’t such a tax hurt workers and poor the most, not the rich bankers and bosses whose headlong gallop to make profits has brought the world to this state?Naomi Klein’s book, “This Changes Everything,” correctly nails corporate capitalism as responsible for the climate change that threatens the world. That’s a step further than the older environmental movement went. But she does not recognize that the working class and the oppressed peoples will play not just an auxiliary, but the central role in tearing down the system. Revolutionaries see climate change as a compelling issue that must bring more and more young people into the struggle of the workers and oppressed for socialism — a system without bosses and billionaires, where stock exchanges will be museums dedicated to the horrors and ridiculous extremes of the past, and where healing the earth will go hand in hand with eradicating the injustices of centuries of exploitation and racist, sexist, homophobic oppression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Photo: Marc CamposThis summer, The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens will host internationally acclaimed photographer and sculptor Mary Beth Heffernan in an artist-in-residence arrangement made possible by a grant from Los Angeles arts organization Photographic Arts Council/Los Angeles. Called the PAC/LA Contemporary Artist Grant, this is the first to be offered by the organization.“We chose The Huntington for our first grant because of its outstanding research and photography collections,” said Gloria Huyck, the chair of PAC/LA’s board. “We wanted to give a Los Angeles-based photographer the chance to be inspired by The Huntington’s holdings. We’re also thrilled to be working with The Huntington’s curator of photography, Jennifer Watts, who we consider to be one of the most knowledgeable and creative in the country.”The grant amounts to $10,000, which will enable the artist to conduct research in the collections and create a finished artwork.Heffernan is a Los Angeles-based artist and a professor of art in the Department of Art and Art History at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Her art explores the intersection between representation and physicality.Heffernan will spend several months at The Huntington, engaging with its library, art, and garden collections and producing new work inspired by the objects she encounters. The Huntington will acquire a new artwork resulting from her residency that will become part of its permanent collection.Photography has long been one of The Huntington’s collecting strengths, with holdings of about 850,000 prints and negatives spanning the period from about 1850 to 1950. The collection contains significant work by noted photographers Carleton Watkins, William Henry Jackson, Andrew Russell, Eadweard Muybridge, Frances Benjamin Johnston and others. The Huntington is known, in particular, for its photographs by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams.Since its inception, The Huntington has inspired visual artists of all kinds. This is especially true for photographers. In recent years, artists as diverse as Paul Caponigro, John Divola, Karen Halverson, and David Hockney, among many others, have explored the gardens and galleries to create new photographic work.“With the PAC/LA Contemporary Artist Grant, we are not only allowing this sort of intervention, we’re actively encouraging it,” said Watts. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be selected by PAC/LA for their first such grant.”Watts chose Heffernan in part because her work aligned so closely with The Huntington and its collections. “Her art is deeply research-based, she is intrigued by historical photographic processes and techniques, and interested in the intersection between the human body and its representation over time,” said Watts. And then there’s the mesmerizing beauty of her art, which Watts finds “striking for its depth and seriousness of intent.”From the start of her career, historical medical archives fascinated Heffernan. Her Becoming series (1994), was a sculptural response to specimens and 19th century medical photographs from the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia. The Replete series (1995–2001) drew from Enlightenment-era dissection engravings by William Hunter at Harvard’s Countway Library of Medicine. She recently received critical acclaim for a solo exhibition of her Blue series at Sloan Projects in Santa Monica, Calif.Heffernan earned her BFA at Boston University in 1987, graduating Magna Cum Laude, and was awarded the Kahn Career Entry Award. She earned her MFA in the photography program at California Institute of the Arts in 1994, and was appointed fellow in the studio program at the Whitney Independent Study Program 1994–95.About The HuntingtonThe Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a collections-based research and educational institution serving scholars and the general public.

Water conservation remains as critical as ever as California enters into its fifth year of drought. Sierra Madre City Council approved a measure earlier this month that would increase the penalty rate assessed on excess water use.The City of Sierra Madre would like to thank its water-wise customers for doing their part to make every drop count. The latest water billing numbers for May show 75% of Sierra Madre customers met, or outperformed, their water conservation targets. The remaining 25% of customers are of increasing concern for the City, as many of the customers who exceeded their water use target in the month have a repeat history of doing so.The City of Sierra Madre will introduce a new water penalty rate beginning on July 1, 2016. The rate will apply to each billing unit used in excess of a customer’s conservation target. The current penalty rate is $5.04/unit. The new rate will increase to $10.72, or two times the Tier 4 rate.If you would like to learn more about conservation and water utility rates, please visit the City of Sierra Madre website at: www.cityofsierramadre.com.

Syrup making – The Sweestest Time of Year

first_img McCartha explained that he and his crew were running syrup and that was the cause of the sweetness in the air.“We used to run syrup down the road but it got where it was so hard for folks to get down that little pig trail that we moved up here,” he said. “Took me a long time to get everything ready but it was worth it. Didn’t have but three parking spots at the other place. Got plenty of room up here though.”McCartha was obviously proud of his new syrup running establishment and the piles of milled cane stalks were testimony to the amount of “running” that had already been done. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Email the author “I’ve got 27 varieties of cane here on the farm,” he said. “Every one of them makes good syrup. Can’t really tell all that much difference in the syrup but I like to try different varieties to see what comes of it. Some’s a little darker and some’s a little thicker. That’s about the only difference. Suit yourself on that.”McCartha’s crew is made up of family and close friends, and they had been up since daybreak to get a day’s work in before mid-afternoon.“My wife gets up early on the days that we’re running syrup and makes biscuits and fries fresh sausage and we eat it with some of our own syrup and there’s ain’t no better eating than that,” McCartha said.The first fun of the day comes at the cane mill where the mill is turned with a trusty Deere. Skip Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Print Article Published 12:00 am Saturday, November 28, 2009 Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories By The Penny Hoarder Syrup making – The Sweestest Time of Year “Oh, no,” McCartha said, laughing. “We don’t pull our mill with a mule. Only Grover Poole does that now. We’ve gone mechanical.”McCartha said it takes 10 gallons of cane juice to make one gallon of syrup.“So far this year, we’ve made 100 gallons of syrup,” he said. “We’ve got enough cane for about 200 gallons more so we’ll be busy for a while.”McCartha’s syrup “kettle” is different from the old fashioned round kettle with a fire up under it – the kind he learned the art on.“My daddy taught me to make syrup,” he said. “Back in 1945 I reckon it was. He made syrup for the community. He was a good syrup maker. Everybody knew that. But we don’t do that any more. Takes way to long. You could just make one pot at a time and it took up to five hours for one making of syrup. That was the old timey way and that was some of the best syrup you’ll ever get. But it just takes too long. Once we get going, a making cooks off in about an hour and a half.”In the modern world of everything at the snap of fingers, even McCartha’s way of making syrup seems like a page ripped from yesteryear.“We call this an evaporator pan,” he said as he disappeared into the sweet, sticky vapor. “We grind the cane and pump it into the evaporator through a pipe,” he said.“Then it runs up in a vat at the top where it’s warmed and then comes on down to where it’s heated up to from 222 to 230 degrees depending on the type cane.”McCartha explained that as the juice is heated it cycles from one section of the pan to the other.“We keep it skimmed until the syrup makes. Then it comes out the spicket and it’s ready to be put in jars and sealed.”Tom Duke, McCartha’s son-in-law, was busy skimming the foam and depositing it in a barrel.“That’s for the hogs,” he said, laughing.The other men joined in the fun. McCartha shook his head.“Nah, we don’t make moonshine from the skimmings like everybody says syrup makers do,” McCartha said, laughing. “It makes a good beer though, and it’s guaranteed to make humans and hogs drunk.”All the syrup makers laughed, probably remembering stories they had heard about the skimmings being left to ferment and all the hogs on the farm getting into them and winding up “as drunk as a skunk.”All of the men at work are seasoned syrup makers. Jason and David Kellum learned the art from their dad, the late William Kellum and McCartha.“Our daddy was always out here. He loved to make syrup,” Jason said and paused as he remembered. “We sure do miss him.”Perrie McCartha and Williams Kellum partnered in the annual syrup-making for many years.“It’s just not the same without him,” McCartha said.However the art of syrup making has been passed down through the families and there are others who help out and have an interest in the sticky business.“We like for folks to come out and watch us making syrup.” McCartha invites everybody that has an interest to come on out. We’ll be making syrup the Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving. We’ll start early and end up about 2 o’clock. And, we’re not hard to find now that we’ve moved up here on the road.”McCartha’s syrup shack is located near Ariton just off Highway 123.“From Highway 231 go on through Ariton until you go past Center Ridge Church,” McCartha said. “Then, you take a left at the first paved road and we’re right down there on the left.”McCartha said he’ll have plenty of syrup for sampling but he doesn’t promise any cathead biscuits. Folks have to work the “kettle” to get those.”Contact McCartha at 774-4593 for directions and “firm” syrup-making times. The sweet, sticky vapors obscured the men at work in the small, three-sided wood crib. Every now and then, one of the men would become plainly visible and then disappear again as the November breeze shifted the vapors.Perrie McCartha emerged from the crib, smiled and howdied the neighbor who had just arrived.“I’ve not been up here before,” A.J. Viviano said. “Kind of new to the area.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… You Might Like Donnie Daniels grateful for Native American heritage Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival and is traditionally a time to give thanks for the harvest and all the… read more Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Workshop aims to catch the rain Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 10:59 pm Monday, October 31, 2011 Skip Lyons said there are several reasons for using rain barrels.“Drought or no drought, we all need to conserve our water as both groundwater and freshwater supplies are limited,” he said. “Rain barrels help reduce runoff. For example, if a roof is 1,200-square-feet, then one inch of rainwater equals about 700 gallons of water. We can harvest this rainwater which otherwise would be lost to runoff.”Runoff can cause erosion, carry fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals.

Broadband

first_img Comments are closed. Cribsheet:The latest technology in a nutshell. This week: Broadband.Whatis it? Thename used to describe various types of high-speed connections to the Internet.Broadband is viewed in many quarters as the key to the e-economy. Thetwo big constraining factors of Internet usage, especially at home, is speedand cost – broadband potentially gets rid of both restraints. Oneof the most talked about broadband offerings of the moment is ADSL (asymmetricdigital subscriber line) and works across existing copper telephone wires.This, potentially, works at 10 times faster than a standard modem connectionand offers an always-on link to the Internet for which users pay a flat-rateaccess fee rather than call charges each time they dial up their Internetservice provider. Otherforms of broadband include cable modems, leased lines and satellite.Whatdoes it mean to me? Ifyou’re accessing the Internet via your office network, speed is probably not anissue at the moment. However,broadband will have an increasingly important part to play in the developmentof mobile or home-working and also in the field of e-learning. Ifyou access the Internet at home, you will have noticed how much slower it iscompared to across your network at work. ADSL, for instance, can work at up to10 times as fast as a conventional modem (upwards of 512kbps whereas aconventional modem is around 56kbps).Broadbandaccess at home will not only enable workers to carry out any Internet-basedwork far more quickly, it will also let them maximise technologies that currentlystruggle across standard home modems, such as video-conferencing andwebcasting. Itwill also enable the HR department to control the cost of a workers’ Internetaccess at home, since they will be paying a flat rate for the service. Thismeans you can also be fairly relaxed about them using it for leisure activitiessince it won’t cost any more. BT’s domestic ADSL service is £39.99 a month plus£150 set-up fee.Manye-learning courses rely on users being able to download large amounts of data,such as multimedia and video files as part of the course, and broadband alsomakes this a much more viable option from home.Wheredo I go for further information?
