Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 4th May, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Warren Buffett is widely regarded as the greatest investor of all time. So, when he makes a move, it’s worth taking note.Recently, Buffett has been making a number of interesting moves that stand out. Here’s a look at two important developments that came to light at the 2020 Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting held (virtually) on 2 May.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…Enormous cash pileOne key takeaway from the meeting is that Buffett is currently sitting on an enormous pile of cash. This isn’t totally new news. At the end of September, Berkshire Hathaway had a record $128bn in cash and short-term investments. At the end of March, however, this cash pile had increased to a colossal $137bn. So, what does this tell us?Well, put simply, it tells us Buffett still isn’t seeing a lot of value on offer right now, even after the recent stock market crash. It suggests he’s waiting for another pullback.Indeed, when quizzed as to why he hasn’t put some of that money into the market after the recent crash, Buffett said: “We have not done anything because we haven’t seen anything that attractive.”And when asked why he hasn’t bought back Berkshire Hathaway stock recently, Buffett replied: “The price has not been at a level where it really feels way better to us than other things, including the option value of money, to step up in a big way.”So, clearly, Buffett thinks it’s worth holding on to cash right now. Should stocks fall further, cash could provide him with powerful options.I think there’s a tip for UK investors here. Having a bit of cash on the sidelines at present, ready to deploy if markets fall again, could be a sound move.Buffett just sold all his airline stocksAnother important takeaway from the meeting is that Buffett recently dumped all his airline stocks. Previously, he had large stakes in American Airlines, United, Delta, and Southwest Airlines.When asked why he’d sold his stake, he said the airline industry has been “really hurt by a forced shutdown by events that are far beyond our control.” He added: “The world has changed for the airlines.”I think there’s another tip for UK investors here. Stocks, such as International Consolidated Airlines (which owns British Airways) and easyJet, could be risky investments in the short term. The same goes for other stocks in the travel industry, such as cruise ship operator Carnival.This is something I’ve discussed in a few recent articles. Ultimately, the outlook for these types of companies has changed dramatically over the last few months. They may face significant challenges in the years ahead. If you’re looking to buy stocks right now, I think you’re much better off focusing on companies that are still ticking along nicely, despite the challenges the world is facing.

The courtyard house is located in a 3-storey mixed-landed residential district, on the eastern part of Singapore. Built for a multi-generational family who seeks a communal way of living but wanted a space that are private, screened from the prying eyes of surrounding neighbors. While inspired by the Si He Yuan courtyard house, the project seeks to readapt the vernacular typology found in the northern regions of China, to a detached house typology in an urbanized tropical context.

The public and private realms are layered in a spatial procession from the street. Circulation within the house circumambulate the courtyard on all floors. Save this picture!© Albert LimThe main spaces are organized around this central, outdoor atrium where a lap pool runs parallel to one edge. The ground floor is finished entirely in hone travertine without any drops to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor, unifying the entire ground floor as a singular, seamless, communal space. The perforated concrete wall allows for air-flow and glimpses of the garden beyond but shields the western sun and its adjacent neighbors.Save this picture!© Albert LimThe house expresses the relationship between periphery and core. Similar to the traditional courtyard typology, the inner core is a private, secure and well-ventilated outdoor space intended as an extension of the family space. While the periphery is surrounded in dense tropical foliage, the courtyard is tranquil and contemplative. Through a series of spatial appendixes of bridges, wall perforations, pool extensions, shower stalls, stairs and bay windows that penetrate the two side walls that bound the inner sanctum, the residents gets to experience the tropical garden on the periphery.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBalmain House / Fox JohnstonSelected ProjectsWinner Announced for Flinders Street StationArchitecture News Share Houses Architects: Formwerkz Architects Photographs CopyAbout this officeFormwerkz ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSingaporePublished on August 09, 2013Cite: “The Courtyard House / Formwerkz Architects” 09 Aug 2013.

November 27, 2020 Find out more Several journalists who are members or known supporters of Gbagbo’s party, the Ivorian Popular Front (FPI), have been appointed to the CNP. They include César Etou, the editor of the pro-Gbagbo newspaper Notre Voie, and N’Goran Aliali, the publisher of Le Quotidien, a newspaper funded by Gbagbo’s son-in-law, Stéphane Kipré. Armand Bohoui, a member of first lady Simone Gbagbo’s staff and a former Notre Voie journalist, has also been appointed to the CNP.Kacou was fired regardless of the fact that he was appointed for an irrevocable three-year period in 2009. The Ivorian authorities have provided no official reason for his dismissal but they have openly accused the CNP of being too soft on the opposition press.Gbagbo’s communication minister, Ouattara Gnonzié, set the tone by telling Radio France Internationale that “the end of tolerance was a self-defence measure” and that calls for sedition or insurrection would henceforth be “punished harshly.”Without even notifying the management of the Côte d’Ivoire branch of the French TV channel Canal+, Gnonzié gave orders for the Canal+ equipment stored at a transmission centre in the Abidjan district of Abobo to be requisitioned for three months from 8 February.The broadcasting permit of Onuci FM, the radio station operated by the United Nations peace-keeping mission in Côte d’Ivoire (ONUCI), was cancelled yesterday. “The frequencies assigned to ONUCI as part of the execution of its mandate in Côte d’Ivoire are withdrawn,” the National Council for Broadcasting Communication (CNCA) said in a communiqué that was read out on RTI.Finally, Reporters Without Borders reiterates its concern about two journalists employed by Télévision Notre Patrie (TVNP) – a TV station that supports the former rebel New Force – who have been held at the gendarmerie’s criminal investigation department since their arrest on their arrival in Abidjan on 28 January. The two journalists, Abou Sanogo and Gnahoré Charly, are charged with “rebellion” and “threatening national security.”Reporters Without Borders has been told that they were hit with rifle butts at the time of their arrest at Abidjan’s air-base and were subjected to other forms of mistreatment, including having lighted cigarettes stubbed out on their bodies (more information ). Local retransmission of the French TV news channels TV5 and France 24 is meanwhile still suspended.

The leadership of the National Press Council (CNP), which regulates the print media, has just been replaced by Gbagbo’s supporters. The UN radio station, Onuci FM, has had its permit withdrawn. And many journalists are still exposed to the threat of violence.“Laurent Gbagbo’s government has just taken over the CNP, a regulatory body known for being serious and impartial,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “It has seized control in an arbitrary and politically-motivated move. Given the political affiliation of the people co-opted by the Gbagbo camp to replace its leadership, we fear the CNP will cease to perform its regulatory function and will henceforth be used to punish opposition journalists and media harshly, and to protect media that are loyal to Gbagbo.”Julliard added: “A manoeuvre of this kind is liable to set Côte d’Ivoire back 20 years in terms of respect for media freedom.”The CNP’s president, Eugène Dié Kacou, and its entire board of governors were fired by a presidential decree signed by Gbagbo on 4 February. Kacou has been replaced by Débi Dally, who, as head of the Ivorian Press Agency (AIP), fired AIP journalists for covering a march on the state-owned Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI) organized by the opposition Houphouëtiste Rally for Democracy and Peace (RHDP) on 16 December.
