Investing in stocks after the recent market crash could be viewed as a risky move by many investors. After all, there is the potential for stock prices to experience a prolonged period of volatility, and even decline.However, by focusing on company fundamentals you could find the most attractive businesses that are most likely to survive the economic challenges that are ahead.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…Furthermore, by adopting a long-term view of your holdings and diversifying across a range of sectors, you can improve your return prospects over the coming years.Company fundamentalsBuying high-quality businesses is likely to be more important now than it has been in recent years. The world faces a period of significant economic uncertainty that could put pressure on a range of sectors and businesses.As such, before buying stocks today, it could be a sound move to assess their financial strength. Companies with lower debt levels and strong cash flow may, for example, have a better chance of surviving the current economic downturn. Likewise, businesses that have wide economic moats may be better equipped to take part in a likely economic recovery over the long term.Through buying strong and stable businesses you can not only reduce your portfolio risks, but improve your chances of generating high returns in the coming years.DiversificationDiversifying is a key part of investing. But it is probably even more relevant today than it has been over recent years. Some sectors and regions of the world could experience greater challenges from coronavirus than others. Therefore, it is logical to spread the risk of your portfolio across a wide range of industries and geographies.Diversifying is more accessible than it ever has been as a result of a fall in the cost of buying shares. Most investors can now purchase a basket of stocks that operate in different areas. That should improve the risk/reward profile of their portfolios through reducing their reliance on a small number of businesses.Long-term focusThe stock market could experience further falls in the short run. Since coronavirus is an unprecedented crisis facing the world economy, and its effects may be felt for a prolonged period of time, investor sentiment could easily weaken over the coming months.However, investors who buy now on a long-term basis could generate high returns. Therefore, it could be a good idea to only invest capital that you will not need in the medium term. This may mean that you leave a modest proportion of your capital in a cash savings account for peace of mind.Yes, cash may produce low returns. But it may enable you to capitalise on low valuations across the stock market without worrying about the short-term performance of your portfolio. In the long run, this strategy may enable you to survive the current crisis. And it could help you to capitalise on the stock market’s low valuation.

first_imgArchDaily Products used in this ProjectPatio FurnitureSwisspearlFiber Cement Design FurnitureCeramics:New ObjectsCity:LjubljanaCountry:SloveniaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Miran KambicText description provided by the architects. The atrium house was designed to unite the family’s living quarters with the working studio of its owner – a ceramic designer and artist – under one roof. Its aim was to be crafted in response to the growing trend of working at home. The 550 square meter plot is located in the suburbs of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in an area currently undergoing extensive gentrification. It is surrounded by dense and diverse construction of singlefamily houses. The client wanted to keep the house closed from its visually busy immediate surroundings, which will undergo unpredictable development in the future, while at the same time wished to acquire a welllit and fully connected living and working space.Save this picture!© Miran KambicThe house is designed in the shape of a ‘U’. With three walled surfaces, bordering the adjacent houses, the views are directed inwardly, providing privacy from the outside world. The inner spaces of the house open via large panoramic windows onto the large central atrium, which is designed as the in-between space. It allows passage to different parts of the house and direct communication between the workshop and the living quarters. The large glass surfaces delineate the interior from the outside as a thin invisible membrane and bring plenty of sunlight inside. In terms of program the house is divided into three zones. The first one features the workshop and the studio of the ceramic designer, accessible via separate entrance under the projecting roof, and also from the common area.Save this picture!© Miran KambicSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Miran KambicWith its potter’s wheels, kilns, and plenty of table room for sculpturing, glazing and decorating, the workshop opens out onto a large atrium that can be used for outdoor firing techniques such as obvara or raku. The central living space is the heart and the main crossing of the house, accessible via main entrance with doorway. It features a big kitchen with a spacious dining and seating area. During the summer months the central space increases in usable space as daily activities are transferred through the large sliding doors onto the atrium. The sleeping area features a large bedroom, two smaller rooms and two bathrooms. The space is designed so as to allow several programs and experiences, and to create diverse atmospheres.Save this picture!© Miran KambicThe building and its interior are dominated by a neutral color palette. The tectonic exterior with its silky smooth concrete façade and light terrazzo floors gives the impression of a sculptural piece, whereas the warm and intimate feeling of the wood-clad projecting roof hints at a different atmosphere inside. The interior living spaces, in parts clad in warm ash and oak wood, are inviting and comforting. The wooden furniture and crackling fireplace create an atmosphere of intimacy, despite the close proximity of the urban bustle.Save this picture!© Miran KambicProject gallerySee allShow less6 Airport Interiors that Enhance Traveling ExperienceArticlesChristopher Cabaldon Discusses Regenerating Cities and Transforming Communities in r…Architecture News Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936335/house-for-a-ceramic-artist-arhitektura-office-for-urbanism-and-architecture Clipboard Photographs:  Miran Kambic Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project House for a Ceramic Artist / ARHITEKTURA / OFFICE FOR URBANISM AND ARCHITECTURE Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs CopyAbout this officeARHITEKTURA / OFFICE FOR URBANISM AND ARCHITECTUREOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLjubljanaOn FacebookSloveniaPublished on March 27, 2020Cite: “House for a Ceramic Artist / ARHITEKTURA / OFFICE FOR URBANISM AND ARCHITECTURE” 27 Mar 2020.

Syria

first_img Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law News Read in Arabic / اقرأ التقرير بالعربية Organisation Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria Bashar Al-Assad’s regime responded with violence when Syrians, inspired by the mass uprisings in the Arab world, took to the streets in March 2011 to demand democratic change. In the weeks that followed, the regime stepped up control of the means of communication and surveillance of dissidents. With the help of its cyber-army, it engaged in a battle of disinformation. Syria’s netizens, the only witnesses still present in the worst-hit areas, continue heroically to risk their lives to inform the world. Like Syrian and foreign journalists, these unwanted witnesses are now seen as enemies of the state. to go further Syria was already known for its censorship of the Internet before the start of the Syrian revolution (read the Syria chapter in the 2011 Enemies of the Internet report). In response to the protests, a violent crackdown in the streets was accompanied by unrelenting online repression.Citizens and netizens combat the news blackoutOutraged by the regime’s reaction, bloggers and netizens took it upon themselves to provide news and information once the foreign media has been expelled shortly after the start of the uprising. As the death toll mounted, ordinary citizens got involved, becoming activists and journalists at the same time, documenting what was happening as journalists would have done, but from the perspective of those who are clearly committed. Already seen during the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions, this trend is much more pronounced in Syria. Activism and reporting have become one.Simultaneously citizens, activists and reporters, they use their imagination to get the information out. Video is filmed with mobile phones and sent straight to video-streaming websites. Or it is filmed with video cameras and the video files are copied on to USB flash drives and passed from hand to hand until they can finally be posted online. Much use is made of Skype and Mumble. Syrians who live the near border use Lebanese or Turkish servers to access the Internet or mobile phone networks and thereby escape surveillance.As the regime reinforces its censorship, the media center created by local coordination committees has formed a network of contributors throughout the country to help disseminate information. They have managed to post videos directly on YouTube, above all via LCCSyria TV, and have helped to transmit content to foreign media. Other networks such as Sham News Network and Avaaz have contributed to circulate information.Members of the Syrian diaspora play a key role in relaying information to journalists and politicians in the countries where they live. Human rights activists throughout the world have also joined this chain of international solidarity. Participative initiatives such as Syria Tracker are trying to document the crimes being committed in Syria.“Hactivists” have helped to get video footage out of Syria. Telecomix, for example, executed a major operation called #OpSyria on the night of 4 September to help Syrians to dodge the government’s censorship. It succeeded in diverting all Syrian Internet traffic to a special page with advice on circumventing censorship, including how to install the Tor software and use a secured https connection. More and more people have since then connected to the Telecomix channel using the protected instant messaging system IRC and have been given help with circulating videos, photos and eye-witness accounts.Indiscriminate violence against population and news sourcesThe toll from the repression since March 2011 is damning. Amnesty International cites the figures provided by the London-based Strategic Research and Communication Centre, which specializes in following Syria. According to the centre, the toll on 4 March 2012 stood at 10,207 dead (including 710 children), 65,000 disappeared and more than 212,000 arrests.At least seven journalists had been killed in connection with their work in Syria by the end of February 2012. Netizens have also paid with their lives for disseminating information. Citizen journalist Basil Al-Sayed was killed in Homs on 29 December while filming a bloodbath in the district of Baba Amr. He had been filming demonstrations and the brutal crackdowns by the security forces since the start of the uprising (watch his last vide). Photographer and video-reporter Ferzat Jarban was murdered on 20 November after being arrested in Homs. Soleiman Saleh Abazaid, who ran the “Liberated people of Horan” Facebook page, was killed by a shot to the head in July. Writer and activist Hussein Issou’s fate is not known but the worst is feared.Many Syrian journalists and bloggers have been arrested or kidnapped and many have been tortured while detained. A total of 16 people – employees and visitors – were arrested during a raid on the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression in Damascus at midday on 16 February. The centre’s director, Mazen Darwish, was one of those arrested. The others were Yara Badr, Razan Ghazzawi, Hanadi Zahlout, Hussein Greir, Hani Z’itani, Sana Z’itani, Rita Dayoub, Joan Farso, Bassam Al-Ahmad, Mayada Al-Khalil, Maha Al-Assablani, Mansour Hamid, Abdelrahman Hamadah, Ayham Ghazzoul and Shady Yazbek. The women were released two days later but were told to report daily to intelligence services while an investigation continues. Nine men are still detained. The raid was condemned by four UN experts.Ahmed Hadifa, a 28-year old blogger better known by the blog name of Ahmad Abu Al-Kheir, was arrested in Damascus on 24 March 2011 “because of his activities on Facebook in support of the protests in Deraa” and was held for three weeks. It was his second arrest.The many others who have been arrested include cyber-activists Alaa Shueiti and Qais Abatili, and the Kurdish activist Shabal Ibrahim. Anas Al-Ma’arawi, a journalist, blogger and founder of the first Arab website to specialize in the Android system, was arrested in a Damascus suburb on 1 July and was held for two months. Mohamed Ghazi Kannass, a journalist who was active on Facebook and kept his own blog called Kalemah Insan (“A man’s word”), was arrested in Damascus in January 2012. Jehad Jamal, a blogger known as “Milan,” was arrested in October and was released at the end of December while the Arab League observers were in Syria. The blogger Othman Mohamed Issa was arrested at his Damascus home on 21 November.Filmmaker and cyber-activist Firas Fayyad was arrested on 1 December at Damascus airport on charges of spreading false information and belonging to an opposition movement. He was finally released in February. (See a partial list of bloggers held on 14 January.)Student and blogger Tal Al-Mallouhi has been detained since December 2009. She was brought before a state security court in Damascus for the second time on 17 January 2011. Reportedly accused of spying for the United States, she is being held in Duma prison, near Damascus. Internet users all over the world have called for her release. Reporters Without Borders knows of dozens of Syrians who have been arrested and tortured after giving interviews to foreign media about the repression in their country. Others have been arrested for working for journalists. The Syrian security agencies make every effort to identify those who help foreign reporters or talk to them. Reporters Without Borders has urged the international media to use the utmost prudence in their contacts with Syrians. Disrupting communicationsAt the start of June 2011, the government temporarily imposed an almost complete stop on the Internet. It was subsequently lifted but Internet connections are now slowed right down regularly, almost every Friday, when the big weekly protests are staged. This is especially so in areas that are opposition strongholds. The aim is to prevent people from sending and receiving video footage of demonstrations and the ensuing violent response from the security forces. There have been reports of the Internet and mobile phone communication being disconnected in Homs at the height of the offensive against the district of Baba Amr.In an attempt to limit the size of the protests and the transmission of photos and videos, the authorities often temporarily suspend Internet and mobile phone services in the localities where protests are taking place. News media and NGOs have responded by distributing satellite phones in cities that are often targeted by such cuts or are hard to access. Risks of geolocalization are involved. Border checks have been stepped up and it is now very difficult to bring such hi-tech equipment into the country. Charging batteries is also a problem. The authorities often cut power supplies to restrict the dissemination of information.Access to Bambuser, a Swedish website that allows users to post video footage shot with a mobile phone, has been blocked in Syria since 16 February. Confirming this on 17 February, the head of the site said “dictators don’t like Bambuser” and that the Assad regime regarded it as a “serious threat.” The Syrian opposition has been using Bambuser to circulate video footage of the government’s brutal repression. Video of the bombardment of Homs that had been posted on Bambuser was recently broadcast by leading international TV stations. Bambuser was blocked in Egypt in January 2011 and is still blocked in Bahrain.Surveillance and propagandaThe government’s cyber-army, which tracks dissidents on online social networks, seems to have stepped up its activities since June. Web pages that support the demonstrations were flooded with pro-Assad messages. To disrupt information on the #Syria hashtag, Twitter accounts were created to send hundreds of tweets with keywords that switched the reader to sports results or tourist photos of Syria. And to discredit the uprising, messages calling for violence were posted on the pages of government opponents to give the impression that they were the authors.The cyber-army claimed its efforts were designed to make up for the shortcomings of the official media and to wage an information war targeted at Syrians both at home and abroad.In order to better monitor dissidents, the authorities used phishing and “man-in-the-middle” methods to obtain their personal data. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) warned Syrian Facebook users on 5 May that fake security certificates planted by Syria’s telecommunications ministry were being used to trick them into providing their personal data and thereby allowing their communications can be monitored. The fake security certificates caused warnings to pop up in browsers, but people tended to ignore them. The EFF urged Syrian users to use proxy connections to access Facebook, or to login via Tor. The EFF subsequently reported that Syrian ISPs were blocking access to Tor. Another option is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Syria is subject to US trade sanctions but Bluecoat insists that any equipment that may have ended up in Syrian hands was in fact supposed to be sent to Iraq. The case highlights the paramount importance of monitoring the export of Internet censorship and surveillance equipment.Legislative farceIn an example of the regime’s macabre and schizophrenic attitude towards all those who provide news and information, President Assad issued a decree on 3 December creating a National Information Council to regulate the broadcast media and Internet. It followed a 28 August decree that included a call for “respect for the fundamental freedoms contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in international conventions.” Article 11 said that “any attack on a journalist will be treated as an attack on a Syrian government official.” No one was fooled.The latest videos from Baba Amr in Homs are evidence of the regime’s crimes against humanity. The risks being taken by journalists and bloggers and the sacrifices that ordinary citizens are making to ensure that information continues to circulate testify to the greatest fear of Syria’s dissidents, that the massacres will take place without the outside world knowing what is going on.

Required fields are marked *center_img Eighty-three percent of the patients tested at Huntington Hospital for the Coronavirus have tested negative.Since the outbreak began the hospital has tested 1,184 patients, and 984 of them have tested negative and 178 have tested positive. As of Monday afternoon doctors were awaiting results from 20 tests.There are currently 61 patients being treated at Huntington Hospital that have tested positive for the Coronavirus.“Huntington Hospital has been testing for COVID-19 along CDC guidelines to include high-risk individuals, those who are very ill and require hospital care, healthcare providers and other high-likelihood individuals due to known exposures,” the hospital’s website reads.The hospital receives patients from Pasadena and around the region.The numbers place Huntington well below its capacity.As part of its surge plan, the Pasadena City Council voted to convert the Pasadena Convention Center to a 250-bed MASH-like alternate care facility that will be ready to treat COVID-19 patients if the spread of the coronavirus winds up overwhelming the existing number of beds available at Huntington Hospital.According to a city staff report, the hospital could expand its capacity to about 600 beds – but “projections provided by Huntington Memorial Hospital indicate that at (the outbreak’s) peak, currently estimated for mid-May, there could be as many as 1,300 persons requiring hospitalization at its facility for treatment of COVID-19.’’“Such a peak would exceed that capacity by approximately 400 beds,’’ the report said.The models have trended down since then.Public safety officers, including police, fire fighters and City Manager Steve Mermell paid tribute to health care workers at the hospital two weeks ago when they lined up fire trucks and police cruisers at the hospital and ran their sirens and flashing lights.Earlier this week, 60,000 masks and gowns were donated to the hospital.County officials said they want to ramp up testing to 10,000 people a day.“We continue to test along CDC guidelines and per health department recommendations in both our hospital and outpatient clinic,” said a hospital spokesperson. “We are supporting LA County in its wider efforts to expand access to testing for symptomatic patients by staffing our local Rose Bowl testing site with Huntington Hospital nurses.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
