The Carnival (LSE: CCL) share price has risen by 50% over the last two months. But the world’s largest cruise ship operator is still in hibernation mode. It’s also recently extended the closure period for most of its biggest brands.As a shareholder myself, I’ve averaged down and intend to continue holding for the long term. But this isn’t the safest of stocks at the moment. The big risk is that Carnival will run out of cash before it can start making money again.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…Is now the right time to be buying Carnival shares, or should we stay on the sidelines until the outlook starts to improve?Getting moving won’t be easyCarnival owns major cruise brands including P&O Cruises, Cunard, Costa, Princess and Holland America. The rapid rise in Carnival’s share price suggests to me that investors are buying the stock in the hope the cruise industry will quickly be able to get back to normal.However, indications so far suggest to me this could be more difficult than many investors expect.Carnival faces two big challenges, in my view. The first is that the company must be sure it can operate cruise ships without any risk of them becoming coronavirus infection clusters. Cruise operators won’t want a repeat of the the bad press they received in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.The second challenge is that there are still a lot of restrictions on free movement around the world. Carnival has already delayed several cruise restarts as a result of ongoing travel restrictions.The cost of doing nothingCarnival’s share price of around 1,350p may look cheap compared to an estimated net asset value of 2,700p per share. However, this business is losing money fast. Management expect cash costs of about $1bn per month while the group’s fleet of 105 cruise ships is laid up.This suggests to me the $6.5bn of extra cash raised by the firm in April could run out by October.The latest news from the company suggests very few of its ships will be operating by then. For this reason, I think it’s likely Carnival will need to raise funds again later this year, or perhaps early in 2021.If this happens, I can only see two options — a big rights issue, or a debt-for-equity swap. In either case, a large number of new shares would be issued. This would result in significant dilution, reducing the stock’s net asset value per share.Carnival share price: high enough?As I mentioned earlier, I’m holding onto my Carnival shares. I believe the cruise industry will recover and that this company will remain the market leader. But I won’t be buying anymore shares until I’m sure the company is on a sustainable financial footing.We should learn more later this week when the company is due to publish its second-quarter figures. I’ll be watching closely.But for now, I think the Carnival share price is probably high enough. The Carnival share price is up 50%!

Hill says England are moving in the right direction

first_imgWATFORD, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 19: Toby Flood of Leicester runs with the ball during the Aviva Premiership match between Saracens and Leicester Tigers at Vicarage Road on February 19, 2012 in Watford, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) “Lancaster will take a good look at the squad. He’ll want to give more than 22 players opportunities in this tournament. I’m sure there will be changes made, but you’ve got to do that without losing the confidence that’s been built so far. We’ve always known that Charlie (Hodgson) has an amazing set of hands, he’s a good tactical kicker and he’s worked very hard on his defence since he’s been at Saracens. Brad has a fantastic workrate in defence, he puts in the big hits and he’s a direct runner.“Wales have got a very good back row, so England will need to make sure they get the correct numbers to the breakdown. They’ve also got to get themselves in the right positions territory-wise, and their lineout will need to be functioning because Wales are so dangerous when they have possession of the ball. Wales are playing well, but England have shown composure and worked hard for their victories so far, especially in Italy coming back from nine points down. It’s just a question of fine tuning their performance.” Charlie Hodgson has earned the nickname ‘Charge Down’ thanks to his two triesFORMER England flanker Richard Hill believes England have plenty to be cheerful about at this stage of the RBS 6 Nations. With two wins under their belts, the team is now preparing to face Wales at Twickenham, the current favourites to win the tournament. Although Wales’ record in London has been poor in recent years, with just one win for the men in red in since 2002, they are brimming with confidence on the back of their World Cup campaign, and have subsequently beaten Ireland in Dublin and Scotland at home in this tournament. However, Richard Hill believes that England coach Stuart Lancaster can be buoyed by his own team’s recent success.“They will be happy with two away victories in difficult places to go and play,” said Hill. “The conditions were hostile, especially in Italy where the ball would have posed many problems, being covered in lumps of snow. England are in the middle of changing their culture and environment and there are a number of positives that can be taken from their performances so far, notably their defence, their intensity and their ability to hunt down the opposition. There are areas that the team will have identified where they need to improve, but their collective understanding will have increased.”Toby Flood in action v SaracensWith a break in Six Nations play Lancaster will have had a close eye on the Aviva Premiership  over the weekend, in particular Leicester’s 20-19 defeat of Saracens at Vicarage Road, which took place on Sunday. Two of England’s starting places are under particular scrutiny this week – that of fly-half Charlie Hodgson and outside centre Brad Barritt – as Tigers Toby Flood and Manu Tuilagi have made successful recoveries from injury, and will be available for selection to play against Wales.Lancaster must decide if he should continue to put his confidence in the Saracens duo, who have served England well so far with Hodgson scoring two tries and Barritt showing he is a wall in defence. His alternative is to revert to Flood, who established himself as England’s first choice fly-half during last season’s tournament win, and Tuilagi, who was a rare success in Martin Johnson’s otherwise disappointing World Cup story. Whatever he decides, Hill says it’s crucial to get the balance right to have a chance of beating Wales.

The clients of villa Röling are passionate art collectors. They love to be surrounded by works of art. Therefore their main wish regarding their new dwelling was that it would do greatest justice to their collection of paintings and sculptures. However, the location of their house, at the edge of the lake Westeinderplas, is so spendid that it was no option to make a closed volume which would have large wall surfaces for hanging on the paintings but would limit the view of the surroundings. The view of the lake and the garden should be maximal. Therefore we decided to design two contrasting volumes, a transparent glass volume overlooking the lake and the garden, and a ´floating´ wooden box on top of it for the works of art.

The sunblinds, made of horizontal slats, move like shutters. Because they consist of two parts with a bend in the middle, the shutters when opened raise like porches above the glass facade. The paintings and sculptures can be exhibited in the centre of the house around the empty space.

Strategic Communication professor launches ‘Humans of TCU’

first_imgprintThere are 10,323 stories on campus.That’s how many students are at TCU. However, with such a large student body, it can be easy to get lost in the crowd and miss out on the stories of fellow Horned Frogs. One TCU professor is trying to change that.Associate Professor Dr. Amiso George has started Humans of TCU — a spin-off of the popular blog Humans of New York.Humans of New York (HONY) was launched in 2010 to provide a daily glimpse into the lives of strangers in New York City, according to its website. HONY has over 16 million followers on Facebook, 4.7 million on Instagram and a book that made The New York Times Best Sellers list for 29 consecutive weeks.George said she loves the idea of the stories of ordinary people, and she wanted to incorporate that here at TCU. Seeing faces in a crowd and then later reading about them online puts things into context, she said. TCU is a place where people are able to tell their own stories in their own words, George said.TCU is a place where people are able to tell their own stories in their own words, George said.“We are a Horned Frog Nation,” George said. “We have stories to tell.”And Horned Frogs are telling their stories. The Humans of TCU Facebook page currently features more than 60 stories and has 741 “likes.” The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Linkedin ReddIt George said every story is different, and by not asking the subjects a specific question, it allows for unique responses. She said her advice is: “Stop somebody, start a conversation.”“Let it be something that they tell you,” George said.George said her passion for the initiative led her to implement it into her Strategic Writing course. She said she has her students complete two entries per week for class.Elle Sparks, a student administrator on the project, said she works every day to monitor posts and find content for the page.“We want this page to be a year-round thing where we post even during the breaks,” Sparks said. “That way, it’ll give you an even better idea of what the TCU community looks like, even outside of school.”Meri Terpstra, a student in George’s Strategic Writing course, said the experience has helped her get to know people she otherwise would have missed.“I intentionality try to talk to people who I always see, but never talk to,” Terpstra said. “It’s a good experience because I’m learning so much more about the people I am surrounded by, rather than assuming I know them just because I’ve seen their face before and they go to school with me.”In addition to student stories, George said she plans to expand the project even further than TCU’s campus. She also said it could expand to more platforms beyond Facebook.“We are working on getting more administrators, staff and faculty,” George said. “But even more than that, we’re going to look for TCU alumni around this area and beyond, because it’s about the Horned Frog Nation, regardless of where they are.” Facebook Fort Worth’s top 5 coffee spots Danielle Johnstonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/danielle-johnston/ Danielle Johnstonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/danielle-johnston/ Fort Worth’s top 5 coffee spots Facebook Twitter Danielle Johnstonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/danielle-johnston/ + posts Previous articleBlood drive helps students give back to those in needNext articleShape your yard to expand your wallet Danielle Johnston RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Danielle Johnston Eatzi’s to replace Chilli’s at University Park Village Danielle Johnstonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/danielle-johnston/ Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Four best Christmas tree farms in the Fort Worth area The Humans of TCU Facebook page has more than 770 “likes.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summerlast_img read more

Limerick TD calls on Aviva not to load premiums of first…

first_imgWhatsApp Fianna Fail TD Niall CollinsFIRST aid responders who provide life-saving assistance to their communities should not have their insurance premiums hiked with 20 per cent loading.The call for insurers to waive the sharp hike comes from Limerick’s Fianna Fail TD Niall Collins who said that the move is “mean spirited”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Criticising motor insurance companies involved, Deputy Collins said, “It has now come to light that Aviva have started to apply a 20 per cent loading fee on motor insurance policies for volunteers in the Community First Responder Scheme.“This is a very mean-spirited policy. Frankly, it’s deplorable, and demonstrates the dysfunction within the motor insurance industry.”“Every year, nearly 5000 people die from cardiac arrest. Community First responders are often first on the scene, especially in rural counties such as Limerick, where ambulance wait times are often longer than the national average.”“Aviva’s policy will, I’ve no doubt, put people off from getting involved in this life-saving initiative. Great strides have been made in reducing cardiac deaths in Ireland in recent years, and any move that inhibits the number of deaths dropping further should be opposed,” said Collins.“After suffering a serious cardiac arrest, every minute is crucial. It’s a medical fact that a person’s chances of survival without medical aid will diminish with every passing minute. Community First Responders help save lives right across the country on a daily basis.”Deputy Collins has immediately called on Aviva to amend their position.“Community First Responders must abide by the rules of the road like everyone else, so I just can’t see the logic in Aviva’s actions. Along with my party colleagues, I will be pushing for Fianna Fáil to bring forward proposals to prevent unfair loading on motor premiums for first responder volunteers,” concluded the Limerick TD.Aviva did not respond to media queries at the time of going to press.

As negotiations continue, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) are among housing-industry professionals urging the White House and Republican and Democratic leaders to, as the association puts it in a statement, “move swiftly to advance a bill that will provide relief to American home owners and renters, create a streamlined, simplified forgiveness process for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, and provide state and local home builders associations (HBAs) access to PPP loans.”In a letter sent to said leaders, the NAHB promised that housing will create jobs and lead the economy forward, but can only do so if relief-geared legislation is put into place, specifically, laws to “help struggling renters with dedicated rental assistance; legislation that provides relief for small businesses from burdensome loan forgiveness requirements; and action that assists HBAs that have largely been excluded from previous relief measures. “NAHB asked for “immediate emergency rental assistance to prevent a massive housing crisis,” noting that eviction moratoriums though the end of the year do not exclude tenants back-rent payments, which, in cases date back to March.“Emergency rental assistance will provide a solution for residents and housing providers alike, and is necessary to help those with financial hardships, without undermining the stability of the housing market and the financial health of our communities,” NAHB’s letter to lawmakers stated.NAHB also called on Congress to make the PPP loan forgiveness process simpler, “to ensure small businesses can focus their time, energy, and resources back into their business and communities instead of allocating significant time and resources into completing complex forgiveness forms.”NAHB reportedly is “pleased that House and Senate leadership recognize the important need for 501(c)(6) organizations (that include state and local HBAs) to access small business loans under the PPP by including this provision in both the HEALS Act and the HEROES Act.”“It is critically important that these non-profits receive the help they so desperately need in the next COVID-19 recovery package,” NAHB told lawmakers. “We strongly urge Congress to work in a bipartisan fashion to pass COVID recovery legislation without delay.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
