Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Energy cell and battery producer Ilika (LSE: IKA) has been on a tear lately. By mid-December it had already quadrupled from its 2020 lows. In the month between mid-December and now, the Ilika share price has doubled again.Here’s what I would do now.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…1. Understand the businessIlika is not a household name. So the first thing I do in a situation like this is try to understand the business. A good way to do this is by reading as much about it as possible. Its annual reports and news releases are available on its website for free. Reading them helps give some overview of the company and its likely prospects.Ilika specialises in solid state battery technology. Originally spun out of university research, the company focuses on two product lines called Goliath and Stereax. While it has been mostly focussed on getting the technology right to date, it is now moving into larger scale production. Last year it started to move to production at scale on the Stereax line of products.As well as money it gets from commercial activities such as sales and licensing, the company also receives some grant funds. These have helped its revenue. But increasingly, Ilika’s revenue comes from commercial sources. That suggests that the end marketplace has growing confidence in Ilika’s products.2. Understand the wider trendsI think one of the reasons the Ilika share price has jumped is because of a wider theme in investing. There has been a scramble to get into alternative energy forms such as hydrogen.While a lot of money has chased such energy companies, the number of companies with working technology is limited. I think one reason Ilika has seen such a share price rise may be that investors looking for energy storage companies are piling into it.Such a thematic approach to investing needs to be handled carefully, in my view. It makes sense to identify broad themes which could help a given sector do well in future. But not all companies will have positive returns, especially when a lot of thematic money pours into a limited number of shares in fairly small companies. That can drive up prices to levels I wouldn’t regard as good value, even if the underlying business is strong.3. Try to value the sharesEven after a steep rise such as that of the Ilika share price, can be followed by continued upward momentum sometimes. That could be because the shares are fundamentally undervalued, and the market is correcting that. But it could also be the continuation of a form of group euphoria, foreshadowing a price fall when pragmatism reasserts itself.While the first is an example of investment, I regard the second as mere speculation. So in looking at a company like Ilika, I try to assess its fundamental value. It does have proven technology, a head start on competitors, and a history of revenues.But it is lossmaking and I don’t understand the technology well enough to understand the company’s potential competitive advantage fully. The Ilika share price of close to one hundred time sales looks high to me.I’ll pass on Ilika in favour of selecting a company whose products I can understand fully, at a lower price multiple. The Ilika share price has doubled since December. Here’s what I’d do Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The previous design did not meet the Client’s requirement, and we were invited to step in. The Client, a young couple, needed their house to do two things; be dynamic, energetic and hybrid to suit their lifestyles, whilst remaining comfortable, familiar and traditional for the husband’s elderly parents living with them.

Relying heavily on top light, we used the technique of levels to bring the light into all the spaces of the house and also to unify and divide the house. The easier access to the ground floor made it traditional space for the parents. Their Bedroom comes in towards the front, opening onto a narrow Front Garden.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThe Living Room also opens up towards this Front Garden, before combining with the Dining Room to occupy the northern length. The Dining Room engages with the Side Garden through large corner glass windows. The Kitchen in the south west opens towards the Dining Room.

The Utility area, the Powder Room, the Help’s Room and the Parents’ Bathroom are bundled into a low height block above which sits the Mezzanine and the Elevated Garden. Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThis Elevated Garden becomes the heart of the house, commanding views from both the ground floor and the first floor as well as sourcing light and ventilation for the house. The first floor revolves in a ‘C’ shape around the Elevated Garden, and houses a bedroom on either side with a large hybrid space in the middle. This Hybrid Space lines up with the Elevated Garden with sloping roof expanding its volume and the light filtering into it. It serves as a den, a library, an AV room and a second living room for the couple. The Master Bedroom turns into a suite towards the front, with a cut-out separating the bath and sleeping areas. A tree (from below) grows through this cut-out, simulating an internal courtyard. The roof houses the Study as it overlooks into the Elevated Garden from above.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThe staircases of the house run through a central vertical shaft connecting all the spaces together. This is the Steel Space frame; a language derived from the internal geometry; widths and the heights of the house. Just like the garden and the light, the Steel Space frame with its silhouetted foreground becomes the language through which each space perceives the other. Almost like a lens with its own coloration. This same lens is taken to the outside edge of the Master Bedroom, courtyard and bathroom, to craft the views and the connect of the house to the outside. The silhouette inside becomes an object outside, and a silhouette outside becomes an object inside. These shifts through day and night makes Aadyam revel in its own character from deep subjectivity to stoic objectivity.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Trap Installation / Cheng Tsung FENGSelected ProjectsOuthouse / MISA ARCHITECTSSelected Projects Share 2017 Houses Photographs “COPY” Aadyam House / Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects GRCASave this projectSaveAadyam House / Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects GRCAlast_img read more

Pentagon behind Yemen disaster

first_imgOct. 16 — The Navy destroyer USS Nitze fired Tomahawk cruise missiles on Oct. 13 at what Washington claimed were “Houthi-controlled radar sites” in Yemen. This was Washington’s first direct military strike in the escalating U.S.-Saudi war against the impoverished Middle Eastern state.The U.S. attack was ostensibly in retaliation for missile threats against the USS Mason, as reported Oct. 10 by international news agencies. The Pentagon destroyer was deployed in the southern Red Sea.The Pentagon quickly blamed these supposed missile threats on the Ansurallah movement (also known as the Houthis), which Washington has targeted as the principal enemy in Yemen since the religious group has taken control of territory in the country’s northern, central and southern regions, near the Gulf of Aden. Saudi-led airstrikes and ground operations have targeted the Supreme Revolutionary Committee, an Ansurallah-led alliance, since U.S. diplomatic and military personnal withdrew in 2015.Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesperson, said, “We assess the missiles were launched from Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen.” He claimed the U.S. is committed to ensuring “freedom of navigation” everywhere, and “will … take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of our ships and our service members.” (Washington Post, Oct. 10)The war conducted by Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council since March 2015 has killed over 10,000 Yemenis. Daily aerial bombardments have sought to neutralize and defeat the Ansurallah movement, which is accused of being politically supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran.Ansurallah supporters have largely been Shite-oriented adherents of Islam in Yemen who allied with former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Military units still loyal to Saleh have fought a coalition of anti-Houthis forces, including ousted Saudi- and U.S.-backed President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. Islamist elements alongside GCC and allied special forces have reinforced Hadi.Power stations and water supply lines have been deliberately destroyed in a desperate war to reclaim control of the country by political interests allied with Washington, London, Paris, Brussels and Riyadh. Numerous attempts to negotiate a political settlement involving major organizations and religious groups in the Middle East’s most impoverished state have been sabotaged by the Saudi monarchy and supported by the U.S. State Department.World outcry at funeral attackSaudi-GCC air forces struck a funeral Oct. 8 in the capital of Sana’a, killing over 140 people. Eyewitnesses said there were at least two bombings. These air strikes follow a pattern since this phase of the war is targeting civilians by bombing residential areas, schools, health facilities, mosques and camps for internally displaced people.Even the Wall Street Journal reported Oct. 10: “With its military campaign in Yemen under renewed international scrutiny, Saudi Arabia said it ‘regretted’ a strike on a funeral that killed 142 mourners but stopped short of accepting responsibility for the attack.” In a letter from its U.N. Mission to the Security Council, Saudi Arabia promised to release its results from an investigation into the airstrike, which “Houthi rebels blamed on the Saudi-led coalition fighting to unseat them.”Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly called the Saudi leadership to express Washington’s “grave concern.” Perhaps this air strike — which received widespread U.S. media coverage — was a potential embarrassment to President Barack Obama’s administration.U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon commented, “Aerial attacks by the Saudi-led coalition have already caused immense carnage and destroyed much of the country’s medical facilities and other vital civilian infrastructure. Bombing people already mourning the loss of loved ones is reprehensible. This latest horrific incident demands a full inquiry. [T]here must be accountability for the appalling conduct of this entire war. … Those  responsible for the attack must be brought to justice.” (bigstory.ap.org, Oct. 10)Ban requested the U.N. Human Rights Council establish a team to conduct an independent investigation into the Oct. 8 bombings. He stated that the latest attacks continue a disaster that has left 80 percent of the 20 million people in Yemen in need of humanitarian assistance.Imperialist-engineered disasterMany Yemenis have fled to other parts of the country and abroad to avoid the conflict. The U.N. Office for Humanitarian Affairs and other relief organizations have issued reports on this situation.The World Food Program, a U.N. agency, has reduced monthly food rations to the Yemeni people due to the lack of funds. Agency spokeswoman, Bettina Luescher, said WFP needs another $145 million to complete its work by the end of 2016. “Even before the violence and the war in Yemen, the malnutrition rates of children in Yemen were the highest in the world,” she said. “Half of the children are stunted, meaning they are too short for their age because of chronic malnutrition.” (voanews.com, Oct. 4)According to the same source, Jens Laerke, spokesperson for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said the bombing and ground war in Yemen have destroyed the country’s economic fabric. Basic services have been destroyed, moving the economy near to total collapse. Children have been the main casualties of the war. He said, “[T]here are 1.5 million [children younger than 5] who are acutely malnourished.” Many others are suffering from moderate malnutrition.Laerke explained: “Before the war, Yemen was over 90 percent dependent on import of basic food items and medicines. Eighty percent of those imports come through Hudaydah port,” an important lifeline.  “What is particularly urgent in the port is … repair of five cranes, which were damaged in an airstrike in August 2015, so they have been partly out of commission for quite some time.” This has made it difficult to import food and other needed supplies through the port.U.S.-backed war causes death and destructionThis is a genocidal war being waged with Washington’s support. The  Obama administration has authorized the use of American-made warplanes, bombs and other destructive weapons against the Yemeni people.“The U.S., a top Saudi arms supplier, approved a $1.15 billion sale of tanks and other military equipment to Riyadh in August,” reported the Oct. 10 Wall Street Journal. “Citing Yemen’s high civilian casualty toll, four senators introduced a resolution on the floor of the Senate in September to block the sale,” but it didn’t pass. The newspaper noted London’s approval of “the sale of billions of dollars’ worth of British jets, bombs and missiles to the country in recent years.”Without the diplomatic cover provided by the White House, the Saudi-GCC coalition could not have carried out this war for the last 19 months. The disastrous situation in Syria has overshadowed the war in Yemen; yet both are a direct result of U.S. imperialism’s failed policies.Meanwhile, the U.S. is intensifying its “clandestine war” in Somalia, which also borders the Gulf of Aden. The escalating campaign involves hundreds of U.S. Special Operations troops, airstrikes, private contractors and other forces rotating through makeshift bases and creating more imperialist murder and mayhem.An earlier version of this article appeared in Global Research: Centre for Research on Globalization.

A game day guide to food around TCU

first_imgFort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday ReddIt printFootball fans wanting to grab a bite to eat before kickoff can choose one of the many options within walking distance of Amon G. Carter Stadium.On University Drive fans could stop by Dutch’s, Buffalo Bros, Pizza Snob, or Salsa Limón.Dutch’s, named after former TCU football head coach Dutch Meyer, offers an array of burgers, sandwiches, chicken strips and milkshakes. Andrew Ward, expediter and cashier at Dutch’s, said that while the restaurant is packed with TCU fans on game day, it’s never full.“It doesn’t ever feel too crowded,” Ward said. “It’s just a great atmosphere because the majority of the people you’re going to find in here are also going to be rooting from the same team.”A similar atmosphere can be found at Buffalo Bros which serves pizza, wings, and subs. Myranda Jackson, a waitress at Buffalo Bros, said that the restaurant is usually standing room only on game days and that they even set up the pool table as a regular table to fit more people.“It’s just a whole bunch of screaming and cheering,” Jackson said. “Pretty much everyone comes here. It’s awesome.”Fans looking for a little calmer atmosphere can grab some food from the build-your-own pizza restaurant Pizza Snob. Monica Murphy, general manager for Pizza Snob, said on game days the restraint is fun and upbeat.“We have the best pizza, the best customer service, and it’s very quick,” Murphy said.Pizza Snob is also popular among visiting teams’ fans said Murphy.“In conference games we get a lot of the opposing fans in here,” Murphy said. “Of course I always have my TCU in here.”Fans looking for something outside the typical game day food can try Salsa Limón which serves tacos, burritos and quesadillas. Salsa Limón owner, Frank Sigala, said that the restaurant grew because of TCU and that it is a great place to enjoy game days.“We’re a modern institution with the best tacos in the world,” Sigala said. “It couldn’t fit any better.”Horned Frog fans can also join one of the many tailgates around the stadium. TCU alumna Susanne Stutheit, who has been tailgating for over 10 years, said she enjoys the ease that comes with tailgating.“You’re not having to get your food and get to the game and get parked,” Stutheit said. “It puts us closer to the game.”However, no matter where fans eat before the game, everyone can enjoy the atmosphere around the stadium.“It’s a lot more of a celebration,” Stutheit said. “I love being close to that.” Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ WATCH: Former Chief of Staff for Obama talks Trump administration, Democrats, liberal arts education Linkedin + posts Previous articleMan who killed TCU student sentenced to 35 yearsNext articleNew connection space offered for transfer students Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major.
