Since falling by more than 50% in the Covid-19 sell-off, the KAZ Minerals (LSE: KAZ) share price has rallied. The shares are now sitting just 14% below their 2020 high. Even so, they’re still over 70% down on where they were in 2011. As is often the case with miners, KAZ’s performance has been one of boom and bust.The FTSE 250 group is primarily focused on producing copper, but also produces smaller amounts of gold, silver and zinc. KAZ benefits from operating mines that are among the most cost-efficient in the world, and operates out of Kazakhstan, Russia and Kyrgyzstan.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…Since a company restructure in 2014, KAZ’s performance has been impressive. Over that time, annual copper production has increased from 85kt to 311kt. Revenues have increased from $665m in 2015, to $2.26bn last year. Meanwhile, net profits have averaged over $400m for each of the last four years, with record profits of $571m in 2019.This performance is largely the result of a focus on high-growth, low-cost mines. And KAZ is committed to further optimising and expanding production at its existing mines, as well as acquiring new assets. In fact, the miner paid $900m for undeveloped assets in Russia as recently as last year. By 2022, it plans to have increased copper production by 25% from today’s level. Then by 2027, it hopes to be producing 500kt of copper a year.The KAZ share price follows the copper priceLike all miners, the KAZ share price is sensitive to movements in commodity prices. Ultimately, profits will be determined by the copper price. But I think KAZ is in a good position. Its low-cost mines give it a net profit margin of 26%. This leaves plenty of scope to absorb lower prices and remain profitable. While a positive movement in pricing will have a disproportionately larger positive impact.The copper price is intrinsically linked to economic growth. Such growth drives increased demand for copper, which is an important component in everything from electricity generation and transmission, to transportation and communications. In the long term, there’s logic in the rationale for copper price appreciation. Management predicts a shortfall in global copper supply in the coming decade, while electric vehicles and renewable power generation are expected to create a significant increase in demand.Operations largely unaffected by Covid-19The group’s operations have been largely unaffected by Covid-19, with management leaving production targets for the full year unchanged. Sales of gold made up 14% of revenues last year. A 14% increase in the gold price – since the onset of the pandemic – will go some way to offsetting the 10% plus fall in the copper price.The current KAZ share price gives a P/E (price to earnings) ratio of around 5, based on last year’s earnings. I think that puts the shares in the ‘cheap’ category and severely underestimates the company’s financial performance. If the group manages to increase production as planned, and if the copper price stays stable, then I would expect the KAZ share price to kick on.However, as a long-suffering shareholder, I must also warn of the risks. The company does have a high debt load. But more worrying is the collapse of the share price and subsequent restructuring in 2014. This still leaves an unpleasant after taste and hints at corporate governance issues. To reduce risk, make sure to diversify.

We tried to imagine, all of us together, a dwelling in which we would like to live. Bright and open to meet with friends  some of us said, intimate and in semidarkness, the laziest ones replied. A dwelling with a multiple personality. One that would be able to react to the changing seasons. One that would open itself to two different environments; on one side, a street belonging to a new urban development, but close to the urban life of Vallecas Village, and on the other side, a bounded and safe courtyard. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteAs a result, we designed a cross-ventilated dwelling divided in two very different areas; one a static collection of spaces, devoted to private and intimate functions, and another dynamic one, devoted to social life. This last space, where family and close social life takes place, is able to transform itself into an open terrace by opening two big sliding windows that leave no mullion in the corner. This architectural solution allows the inhabitants of the always too small social dwellings, to enjoy at the same time a large terrace in summer and a spacious living-room in winter. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteAnother big bet of the project was to enhance communal life taking great care of the common spaces and interconnecting them visually in order to multiply encounters between dwellers. The usually closed-in stairs and dark entries from the elevators to the dwellings, have been opened and are day-lit. The stairs cantilever into the courtyard facing South and provide a nice spot to chat with a neighbour or to wave hello as they walk into their own private area. The courtyard is the center of communal life of the building. It offers a safe playground for children and a long bending bench strategically placed facing the busiest area on the ground floor. We want people to meet and develop informal social relations which are not taking place so easily in car friendly buildings and neighbourhoods. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteFrom the urban point of view, the block is broken into several slices which have been split in order to multiply the free corners. This strategy multiplies the facades and blurs the massive image which the urban plan had envisioned for this plot. In this way, the volumetric composition of the building is adapted to the small and broken image of the old “Villa de Vallecas” located on the opposite side of the street, while its height and width match the neighboring constructions in the new urban development.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessRegeneration of Part of the Piraeus Port Authority (OLP) Coastal Zone Competition En…ArticlesFuensanta Nieto & Enrique Sobejano Lecture at Portland State UniversityArticlesProject locationAddress:Ensanche de Vallecas, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

The politics behind the NFL protests

first_imgThe fourth week of the National Football League season saw continuing protests by its players kneeling, sitting, linking arms and/or raising fists.These recent protests were ignited by Donald Trump’s racist rants during a Sept. 22 Republican rally in Huntsville, Ala., when he called for the firing of any player who specifically sat or knelt during the anthem. He also insulted these players and their mothers by referring to them as “SOBs.”In response, more than 200 NFL players took part in an unprecedented display of solidarity against Trump’s remarks on Sept. 24 and Sept. 25. The NFL players are 70 percent African American.Following these protests, Trump continued his attacks on the players by tweeting to NFL owners that they were “afraid” of firing the players, who he said “disrespected” the flag and anthem.Colin Kaepernick, the Black former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, was the main lightening rod for these protests when he took a knee during the 2016 NFL season to bring more national attention to the police killings and racist oppression that plague Black and oppressed communities.Now into the second month of the 2017 season, Kaepernick remains unemployed, as no team owner has hired him.Even though the number of players who protested Oct. 1 was smaller compared to those last week, 15 players from Kaepernick’s former team, the 49ers, knelt during the anthem, while 15 other players stood behind them, putting their hands on the backs of their kneeling teammates in solidarity. Three members of the Miami Dolphins, including outspoken player Kenny Stills, knelt.Nine defensive players from the Seattle Seahawks — Michael Bennett, Frank Clark, Garrison Smith, Marcus Smith, Jarran Reed, Michael Wilhoite, Cliff Avril, Sheldon Richardson and Naz Jones — knelt during their Sunday Night Football game versus the Indianapolis Colts. Bennett was assaulted by the Las Vegas police in late August. He has taken a very visible, consistent stance similar to Kaepernick’s.Six members of the Buffalo Bills, along with a large number of Baltimore Ravens, knelt before the anthem played, and were still booed by majority white fans.Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch wore a “Trump vs. Everybody” shirt. The Raiders staff surrounded Lynch so he would not be photographed while sitting during the anthem.The Carolina Panthers’ Black quarterback, Cam Newton, gave a “Black power” salute in the end zone as a call for solidarity after scoring a touchdown on Oct. 1. Newton is a strong Kaepernick supporter.Many athletes from different sports continue to kneel to protest inequality, including high schoolers.Significance of players’ protestsBlack athletes have historically used sports as a platform to help forward the struggle for racial equality and national liberation, most notably Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Wilma Rudolph, Muhammad Ali, Tommie Smith, John Carlos and now Kaepernick. Sports is an important part of U.S. culture that socially brings together many nationalities, generations, genders and gender expressions, despite the super-exploitation of athletes for bosses’ profits.The NFL remains the most popular pro sports league in the U.S. Therefore, no matter the wide spectrum of political views on the role the U.S. flag, the military and the anthem play in the protests, in general these athletes have taken an important step forward by using their visibility as athletes in the fight against white supremacy and police brutality and in solidarity with Kaepernick’s fight to be signed to a NFL team.These players have become important allies in the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement that emerged following the vigilante murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012.As Bryant Gumbel stated on HBO’s “Real Sports,” “Thanks, Trump, for energizing social consciousness of all athletes to stand for something.” Many of these players are acknowledging in their actions what ESPN’s sportscaster Jemele Hill said on Twitter in early September: Trump is a white supremacist.As their class consciousness deepens, many of these players will also come to realize — like millions of other workers — that their interests are diametrically opposed to the billionaire owners’ interests to make profits from their athletics. While a large number of players are forced to cut their football careers short due to devastating, chronic injuries, the bosses fight tooth-and-nail to deny them long-term health coverage.The owners may be upset with Trump for demanding that they fire protesting players, but these same owners are also doing everything possible to persuade the players not to use the platform of the playing field to protest, calling it “divisive.”The actions of the NFL athletes are encouraging others to take a stand, especially against police brutality. A group of white residents in Queens, N.Y., held a banner Sept. 22 inside Mets stadium, home to the New York Mets, while the anthem played. It read, “This is us taking a knee. Black Lives Matter.” They had consulted with their Black neighbors beforehand to get approval for their protest. It was a powerful, symbolic display of anti-racist solidarity.Despite any racist backlash, these players in the long run will continue to resist the pressures from the powers that be — from the mainstream media to the team bosses — to just stick to sports. It reconfirms the Marxist view that no struggle takes place within a vacuum. No struggle can be isolated from the general society, especially when white supremacy is so prevalent.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Queer Liberation march organizers slam NYPD phony Stonewall apology: Disingenuous non-apology ignores ongoing attacks on LGBTQ+ and communities of color

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this The following is a June 6 statement from the Reclaim Pride Coalition in New York City. For more information, go to reclaimpridenyc.org/.We are not impressed by Commissioner O’Neill’s empty apology, given under pressure during Pride Month. Where has this apology been for the last 50 years? The [New York Police Department] Vice Squad is still in business, busting sex workers and others, while its members run their own brothels. The NYPD is still arresting trans kids of color for walking down the street and arrested a trans woman in the Bronx who was walking home from work, holding her in custody for 24 hours in handcuffs! The NYPD has spent decades entrapping gay men. And the NYPD continues to strike fear in communities of color and other marginalized communities. Commissioner O’Neill had the nerve to say that this would never happen in 2019, completely ignoring that the NYPD continues to be an oppressive force in our communities even on the day of Pride. For decades, the Christopher Street Piers have been somewhat of a public safe space for LGBTQ+ youth of color who were violently policed out of the space. Every year, Cop Watch activists patrol the piers during Pride because of the amount of violent policing the youth who hang out there experience. Last year the NYPD completely cut off all access to this space, taking away a gay space of community from hundreds of mostly Black and Brown LGBTQ+ people. This is only one example of the continued oppression faced by marginalized members of the LGBTQ+ population, and it happens on Pride Day! The Reclaim Pride Coalition is a group of individuals and organizations producing a massive Queer Liberation March people’s protest for June 30th. No corporations and no uniformed police in our March. From our first meetings in the months prior to the 2018 Pride Parade, the Reclaim Pride Coalition has called for a comprehensive NYPD apology, including for their ongoing brutality against marginalized groups and for a systemic change in their operations.last_img read more

So great was the demand, said observers, the bar actually ran out of beer â€œpaddles.”With a powerful and popular lineup of hand-made beers, many Orange County beer lovers visited the restaurants on the first day, and returned the second, with friends.Judges from both Colorado and California judged such brands as Belching Beaver, Dog Ate my Homework, Out of Sight, and Chocolate Yeti.Oskar Blues, in fact, one of the Colorado Breweries, delivered only two kegs of their Ten Fidy, bourbon barrel-aged, Imperial Stout to California. Matt Denny’s was one of the two deliveries for a beer that has never been out of Colorado.When the foam had cleared, Noble Ale Work’s Naughty Sauce, from Anaheim, California, emerged as the winner in a pitched battle.At press time, neither Mr. Noble nor Mr. Naughty, nor Mr. Anaheim, was available for comment.Meanwhile, Matt Denny’s will feature a very special Father’s Day menu for Dad’s on Friday the 13th, Saturday the 14th, and Sunday the 15th with its Happy Hour, on Sunday all day. You can treat Dad to a Potato Crusted Salmon, an 8-ounce fresh salmon filet, lightly seasoned and then wrapped in potato herb mix and pan seared till golden brown and tender. Topped with a lemon butter sauce. Served with a choice of two sides.Maybe Pop is the Mahi Mahi type? There’s a Wild Mahi Mahi filet, seasoned with olive oil and fresh herbs, served over rice pilaf with mango chutney and fresh papaya, available.You can’t go wrong with chicken. How about a half chicken seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper and fresh rosemary? This tender chicken is then slow roasted and topped with sautéed shallots, garlic, white wine and chopped roma tomatoes. Served over garlic-mashed potatoes with a choice of soup or salad.Dad likes to mix it up? We’re thinking Steak and Scampi; a 7-ounce New York steak cooked to temperature with four large shrimp served scampi style. Served with a choice of two sides.There is, of course, always the classic Prime Rib, a classic 12-ounce cut slow-roasted and served to temperature with au jus, horseradish sauce and a choice of two sides.But, how about smothering it? A 12-ounce cut is grilled to temperature and topped with sautéed mushrooms, onions, gravy, and jack cheese. Served with a choice of two sides.Dessert is White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, or a New York Style Cheesecake. Doesn’t Dad deserve both?Matt Denny’s Ale House Restaurant is 145 Huntington Dr., Arcadia. (626) 462-0250. www.mattdennys.com.
