WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

first_img WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? Share KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsappcenter_img Q.What is spectrum and why do we need it?A.Spectrum is the radio waves that mobile signals are broadcast over. It comes in different frequencies which are useful for different tasks – some work well for voice calls and other parts for data usage such as mobile video. It is increasingly important for operators to own spectrum that can handle data traffic thanks to the explosion in smartphones.Q.Who will the auction Benefit most?A.The government owns the spectrum so UK PLC stands to gain through the sale. Last time around the government netted £22.5bn, although this time it is likely to be closer to £4bn.Q.What outcome does ofcom want?A.The watchdog is committed to maintaining four players in the market – Vodafone, O2, Everything Everywhere and 3 – which it says will ensure competition. The smallest operator, 3, is vulnerable, so Ofcom will ensure it has its share of the 4G spectrum. It is also tasked with making sure one operator does not come out of the auction with significantly more spectrum than its rivals. It has previously faced criticism for this.

GC licence changes for player protection come into effect

first_img Changes to the GB Gambling Commission’s Licence Conditions and Codes of Pratice (LCCP) that aim to raise standards for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and consumer interaction have come into effect today (31 October).When the changes were first announced earlier this year, Commission executive director Paul Hope said they would make gambling fairer and safer for consumers, and warned operators they would be expected to comply in full with the amendments.Under the Gambling Commission’s new rules, licence holders now must fulfil additional obligations in dealing with customers at risk of experiencing gambling-related harm.The changes to customer interaction requirements will mean operators must now focus more on the outcomes of both identifying and interacting with players who may be at risk of or experiencing harms associated with gambling. This includes assessing the impact that an interaction has on a consumer and the effectiveness of its overall approach.The customer interaction changes will affect all licences except non-remote lottery, gaming machine technical, gambling software and host licences.In addition, gambling businesses will now have to meet the Commission’s additional standards for ADR rather than just the requirements listed in the national ADR regulations for all industries, including stipulating that license-holders must work only with providers approved by the regulator.Under the new standards, ADR providers must recognise that compensation for customers should reflect emotional or practical harm, rather than being a punishment for a business, and must consider areas beyond financial loss. In addition, compensation must be solely determined by the ADR provider unless appealed in court.ADR providers must also make information available to customers on whether they will reconsider the outcome of a dispute after the outcome has been issued, the circumstances in which this could take place and the timeline for such a process.The new rules also specify that an ADR provider must provide transparency on how it is funded and how it is independent, as well as publishing its performance data. In addition. they must also acknowledge receipt of customer contact within three working days and provide an update to customer every 30 days that the dispute is ongoing.ADR providers who do not meet these standards will not be considered approved providers for gambling license holders.The Gambling Commission said the changes will improve consistency and clarity over the role of such a provider. These changes will affect all licences with the exception of gaming machine technical licences and gambling software licences.

Lloyds shares are up 11% in five days. Here’s what I’d do next…

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It’s far from easy being a bank during the worst economic downturn in 300 years, as I’m sure the bosses of Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) know full well. With unemployment rising and no sign of the virus abating, British banks have set aside tens of billions of pounds in loan-loss reserves. That’s why Lloyds shares are in the doldrums.Lloyds shares have bounced backAs I wrote this late on Wednesday, Lloyds shares traded at 28.18p, almost unchanged from Tuesday’s close. This leaves them almost 44% down over the past 12 months. Hardly surprising, given the devastation Covid-19 is wreaking on UK businesses. What’s more, Lloyds shares are down almost two-thirds (61.7%) from their 52-week high of 73.66p, hit on 13 December last year.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…In short, it’s been a brutal year for Lloyds shareholders (and for its staff, most of whom own shares in their employer). Now for the good news: Lloyds shares cratered at 25.43p on 31 July and are up 10.8% in five days. But that’s scant relief, given the steep drops of 2019/20.Lloyds is still a £20bn force in bankingDespite the obliteration of the Lloyds share price, there are still arguments for owning shares in this bombed-out bank. For a start, how much lower can Lloyds shares go? Once they were worth several pounds each, but now they lurk below 30p.For less than the price of a bag of crisps, you can buy part-ownership of a £19.9bn business that has been around since 1695. What’s more, Lloyds owns several well-known, household-name brands, such as Lloyds Bank, Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Scottish Widows.Lloyds still faces multiple headwindsIn its recent half-year results, it unveiled loan-loss provisions of £3.8bn for six months, pushing the bank to a huge loss. What’s more, with furlough support ending and unemployment climbing, there will be many more loan defaults to come. The total for 2020 could easily exceed £5.5bn.Also, falling interest rates trimmed the bank’s net interest margin down to 2.4% in the second quarter. Likewise, the hiatus in the UK housing market has reduced mortgage lending, where Lloyds is the UK’s #1.Lloyds shares are still too cheapGive these headwinds, it’s no wonder that Lloyds shares have done terribly lately. But the bank has net tangible assets of 60p a share, more than double today’s share price. In other words, when you buy £1 of Lloyds shares, you get over £2 of assets.Right now, it’s impossible to value the shares using conventional measures. That’s because earnings per share and dividends have both evaporated. But a discount of 53% to net asset value sounds tempting to me. Hence, I’d keep buying Lloyds as a recovery play and hold them for a future stream of juicy dividends. Image source: Getty Images.

The Ocado share price is sliding! Is it too late to buy the stock?

first_imgThe Ocado share price is sliding! Is it too late to buy the stock? Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The Ocado (LSE: OCDO) share price has collapsed over the past few months. After hitting an all-time high of around 2,900p at the beginning of February, the stock has steadily traded lower.It’s currently changing hands at around 1,900p, a decline of nearly 33%. Over the past 12 months, shares in the retail and technology group are down 3% overall. 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…This price action seems to suggest the company’s time in the sun is over. But past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential.The Ocado share price may be down 33% from its all-time high, but the business is in a stronger financial position than it’s ever been. In fact, over the past year, the company’s fortunes have changed completely.A year of change After spending more than a decade developing its technology, Ocado’s hard work paid off last year when its robotic warehouses proved their worth in the pandemic. These helped its retail business grow substantially, while its competitors struggled to catch up.For example, in the second quarter of 2020, Ocado enjoyed sales growth of 42%, bettering any major UK supermarket. Its market share also increased to 1.7%. Management believes last year helped cement Ocado’s position in the market. Earlier this year, CEO Tim Steiner said that after customers had placed between three to five orders with the group, they stayed with the firm. This implies last year’s customer growth wasn’t a one-off. The company should be able to build on this over the next few years. At the same time, the company may enjoy increased demand for its robotic warehouse technology. Throughout the pandemic, this technology showed that having robots rather than humans in warehouses was more efficient. Ocado share price risks Unfortunately, the company is fighting several potentially devastating lawsuits with AutoStore Technology. The latter argues that its rival has infringed some of its patents. AutoStore says it supplied Ocado with its technology as early as 2012. This technology forms the foundations on which the Ocado Smart Platform was built.These lawsuits are threatening Ocado’s expansion plans in the UK and United States. They could also thwart its plans to sell automated warehouse technology around the world. This is probably the most prominent risk hanging over the stock right now. I think this is the primary reason why the Ocado share price has been sliding over the past few months. It seems to me that investors are becoming concerned about the potential fallout from these lawsuits. I think the market is right to be concerned, but I’m also impressed by the growth of the retail business. As such, I believe the Ocado share price looks attractive after recent declines. However, I’d only buy the stock as a speculative investment until there’s more clarity around the lawsuits.

World Cup 2015: Argentina 45-16 Tonga

first_img It wasn’t routine, but five tries and a win was fine reward for Argentina after trading blows with Tonga. The Pacific Islanders have nothing left to fight for in this World Cup, other than pride, but they played their part in an entertaining affair.Indeed Tonga came roaring out of the blocks, but their tries from Kurt Morath and big man Soane Tonga’uiha couldn’t contend with the breakout powers of the Pumas, whose class told in the end as they scored five tries – with Tuculet, Imhoff, Sanchez, Montoya, and Cordero all crossing the whitewash.WHAT’S HOTAttacking enterprise – Right from the off the Tongans were attacking. Morath was full of mischief and it did the neutrals no end of good to see Tonga’uiha finish off a sublime try that saw Telusa Veainu scoot up the touchline. Argentina replied in kind, with their back three darting round the fringes after big men like Ramiro Herrera and Agustin Creevy busted up the middle.This was never going to be the game for you if you wanted kicking chess and set-plays standing in staccato again midfield drudgery. At times this was like rugby pinball, but it was fun. Forget the structure.Passion play: Diego Maradona cheers on the PumasMaradona in Leicester – Yes, that’s right. Diego Maradona – the footballing legend himself – was in the stand of the Leicester City Stadium, wildly gesticulating and generally ramping up the crowd. What a treat for the Pumas fans.Super Sanchez – Argentina’s fly-half has banished any memories of a poor Rugby Championship, kicking well, pushing his team forward and even dotting down. His efforts here made him this World Cup’s top point-scorer.WHAT’S NOT Tongans getting turned over – Playing at pace the Tongan attackers like Vunga Lilo, Joe Tuineau and Telusa Veainu looked threatening, but whenever they got caught on their own the Pumas had plenty of space to counter-attack. Martin Landajo was always blessed with options whenever Tonga coughed up the ball.Big impact: a Tonga’uiha try was a highlight for Tongans and neutralsHigh tackles – Fairly early referee Jaco Peyper had to pull Nili Latu aside and warn him about the number of high shots going in from the defensive line. Tonga were fighting for their World Cup survival and rightly pumped up, but with the eyes on them they forgot all their defensive shape and left a lot of space for Argentina to attack.STATISTICS LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Breaking free: Pablo Matera terrorises the Tongan defence Man of the Match: Nicolas SanchezAttendance: 29, 124center_img TAGS: HighlightTonga 8 – The number of tries Juan Imhoff has now scored for boss Daniel Hourcade.2 – The number of scrums Argentina lost in this match.61% – The Tongan territory in this match.Argentina: J Tuculet; S Cordero, M Moroni (S Gonzalez Iglesias 71), J De la Fuente, J Imhoff (H Agulla 58); N Sanchez, M Landajo (T Cubelli 67); M Ayerza (L Noguera 67), A Creevy (J Montaya 67), R Harrera (JP Orlandi 67), G Petti (M Alemanno 66), T Lavanini, P Matera, JM Fernandez Lobbe, L Senatore (F Isa 51).Tries (5): Tuculet, Imhoff, Sanchez, Montoya, Cordero Cons: Sanchez 4 Pens: Sanchez 4Tonga: V Lilo (T Halaifonua 71); T Veainu, S Piutau, S Piukala (L Fosita 50), F Vainikolo; K Morath, S Takulua (S Fisilau 71); S Tonga’uiha (S Taumalola 61), E Taione (A Lutui 61), H ‘Aulika (S Puafisi 71), L Lokotui, J Tuineau (S Mafi 67), S Kalamafoni, N Latu, V Ma’afu (O Fonua 62).Tries (2): Morath, Tonga’uiha Pens: Morath 2Referee: Jaco Peyperlast_img read more

In this sense, the difficult parts of the house (bathrooms, kitchen, stairs, and dividing walls) are designed for the expanded scenario, that is, for a home of more than 58 m2 approx. and an apartment of approximately 76 m2.Save this picture!© Ramiro RamirezSecondly, given that almost 50% of the m2 of the complex will be self-built, this building is porous so that the growth can occur within the structure. On one hand we want to frame and give rhythm (more than control) to the spontaneous construction so as to avoid deterioration of the urban environment over time, and also make the process of expansions for each family easier. The proposed continuous roof above the volumes and voids protects the expansion zones from rain and ensures a definitive profile of the building toward the public space.

What we did in this case was to surround the green space with building, reducing the distance between communal space and the home to a minimum. This permitted us to define a collective space with secure Access that gives space to the social network and generates favorable conditions for maintenance and care.

AD Classics: Red House / William Morris and Philip Webb

first_imgCopyIn the heart of a suburb just east of London stands an incongruous red brick villa. With its pointed arched window frames and towering chimneys, the house was designed to appear  like a relic of the Middle Ages. In reality, its vintage dates to the 1860’s. This is Red House, the Arts and Crafts home of artist William Morris and his family. Built as a rebuttal to an increasingly industrialized age, Red House’s message has been both diminished by the passage of time and, over the course of the centuries, been cast in greater relief against its context.+ 14Save this picture!Although relatively austere, the varying rooflines, oriel window, and pointed arch window frames add Gothic flair to the otherwise simplistic Red House.

While the mass-production of household objects made them affordable, critics in the vein of John Ruskin felt that modern manufacturing processes deprived workers of the satisfaction of handcrafting, and that consumers were surrounding themselves with soulless products. This impression aligned poorly with the contemporary notion that the home should serve as a spiritual and moral respite from the chaos of the cities, a philosophy termed the “Cult of Domesticity.” The perceived solution was a revival of the medieval “Guild” mode of production, in which craftsmen were directly involved in the entire manufacturing process.[1]Save this picture!Courtesy of Flickr user KotomiCreations (licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0)During his tenure in the Oxford office of architect George Edmund Street, Morris formed what would turn out to be a long-lived friendship with his co-worker Philip Speakman Webb. Even when Morris left the firm—and architectural practice altogether—after only a year to become a painter, the two remained close enough that they, along with their friend Charles Faulkner, took a joint trip along the Seine in France over the course of 1858. During this voyage, Morris discussed his plans to build a house for himself and his wife Jane with Webb. He also became determined to start his own fellowship of artists and craftsmen, and shortly realized that his new home could be the test of their combined abilities.[2]Upon their return to England, Morris and Webb selected a site in the hamlet of Upton, near Bexleyheath in Kent. It was, at the time, a largely picturesque and undeveloped area, dotted with cottages, medieval ruins, and a nearby Tudor mansion (Hall Place). Nestled between orchards and market gardens, the new house was to stand on an acre of land which, at the price of £4000 (roughly £307,026 [$395,962 USD] by today’s standards), cost Morris five times his annual income at the time. With its somewhat modest proportions, his new home was not to resemble an English country estate, but rather a villa that presaged the suburban developments to come in the following decades.[3]Save this picture!The centerpiece of Red House’s garden is a well topped with a steep conical roof. ImageCourtesy of Flickr user Gabrielle Ludlow (licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)The aesthetic styling of the house is a clear indicator of its designers’ fixation on the medieval ideal: its steeply-pitched roofs, prominent chimneys, and cross gables mark the building as an example of simplified Tudor Gothic design. The L-shape of the house’s footprint allows it to partially wrap around a garden, simultaneously creating an asymmetry typical of medieval structures built and renovated incrementally over time. The Gothic style was a favorite of Arts and Crafts practitioners; to them, it hearkened back to an age of greater craftsmanship and human dignity. Having originated in Western Europe, it was also seen as more appropriate for an English site than the Greco-Roman influences of Classicist architecture.[4]Whereas most fashionable villas of the period were finished in stucco, Morris’ new home was built of exposed brick that inspired its name “Red House.” A tower stands at the vertex of the L, containing the staircase; branching out from this vertex are the two wings of the house. The front wing contains the principal rooms, including the dining room, reception rooms, drawing room, main bedroom, studio, and a garden porch. The rear wing contains the more private elements, such as the lesser bedrooms, servant quarters and lavatory, scullery, kitchens, larders, and back stairs. The garden is sheltered in the southeastern lee of the building, while the main entrance is to the north, facing the street.The bold representation of the house’s structural materials, along with its practical and straightforward layout, hint at an unexpectedly Functionalist approach cloaked in historicist trappings.[5,6]Save this picture!The painted front door is undeniably medieval in character; the stained glass window panes are not original. ImageCourtesy of Flickr user KotomiCreations (licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0)Through a somewhat low and unceremonious front porch, visitors pass into the austere entrance hall. The space is largely devoid of extraneous ornament, paved in simple red flagstone and framed with exposed timbers, setting a decorative precedent followed by the rest of the house. The lack of frenetic ornamentation does not mean that there is no attention to aesthetics, however; rather than gird the structure with decorations, Webb used the structure itself to create visual interest. Throughout the interior spaces, exposed brick arches and timber framing, frequently laid out asymmetrically, serve as an indoor continuation of the house’s external appearance. Brick fireplaces formed the visual centerpieces of the principal rooms, complete with ironwork grates which have since been removed.[7]While the architecture of the house was Webb’s domain, the creation of its furnishings fell to Morris, his wife Jane, and painter Edward Burne-Jones. Their collaborative works throughout the house were as much a celebration of medieval craftsmanship as the building which contained them: everything from the wallpapers to the built-in furniture bore their creative touch. A settle in the entrance hall is adorned with Morris’ painted realization of a scene from the Niebelungenlied, while a Gothic hutch designed by Webb stands in the dining room. Stained glass windows around the house were designed by Morris’ family and friends. On the second floor, the living room fireplace is painted with Morris’ Latin motto, Ars Longa, Vita Brevis: “Life is short, art is forever.”[8]Save this picture!Morris’ hand-painted settle in the entry hall features a depiction of a scene from the German epic the Niebelungenlied.

The orientation of the house means that the principal rooms all face north, leaving them uncomfortably cold even in summer. The fireplaces in each were not only too small to compensate, but smoked so badly that the chimneys had to be heightened in 1861. Meanwhile, the kitchen was positioned to take in the afternoon sun, heating up just as house staff were preparing for afternoon tea and dinner. The larders, being located adjacent to the kitchen, were likewise prone to overheating – a serious flaw in a space designated for food storage. The cellar, which only occupied the space under the stairs instead of the majority of the house as was customary, was insufficient to compensate. These flaws, although having failed to diminish Red House’s status in the architectural canon, rankled Philip Webb later in life to the point that he declared his desire never to see the building again and that no architect under forty ought to design a house.[9]Financial difficulties forced Morris to sell Red House in 1865, only five years after his family had moved in. Over the next fourteen decades, the house remained a private residence; it was only in 2003 that the property was acquired by the UK’s National Trust, ensuring its preservation and opening the house to the public as a museum. With the exception of some missing furniture and new wallpapers developed by Morris after he moved away, Red House remains much as it did in 1865, providing contemporary visitors with a glimpse of the original owner’s vision for an ideal life.[10] Now surrounded by a dense suburban development, Red House stands out as a work of dedicated craftsmanship, its Gothic aesthetic silently protesting the realities of an industrialized world.Save this picture!This stained glass window, depicting Love and Hate, was one of many designed by friends and family of William Morris throughout Red House.
