Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! Cineworld (LSE:CINE) was struggling before coronavirus came along and exposed the extent of its liabilities. It had taken an ambitious swing at buying up cinema chains to become the biggest and the best in the business. Sometimes ambition pays off, (the risk versus reward mantra is never far from an investor’s mind), but sometimes you can get too big for your boots and the cards of fate fall the other way. Unfortunately, the Cineworld share price reflects the latter.Massive share price tumbleThe Cineworld share price has fallen 84% year-to-date. It has an eerily low price-to-earnings ratio of 3, and earnings per share are under 10p. These financial metrics reflect a company struggling to stay afloat, and unfortunately that is exactly the position Cineworld finds itself in. 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…UK cinemas began reopening in July, but consumers are still reluctant to return. The months of screen time at home have perhaps taken the shine off paying to watch yet another screen, even if it is in a different location. Worries about hygiene, mask wearing and proximity to strangers are also off-putting.Streaming services have undoubtedly become commonplace in recent years, and never more so since lockdown. Several of them are now opting to release straight to the small screen, foregoing the traditional cinema route, while other new releases have been postponed or cancelled completely. Disney opted to release its live-action version of Mulan straight to its streaming service Disney+ much to the dismay of British Cinema regulators. Disney+ has in fact benefited from the pandemic, illustrating the stark difference between the corporate winners and losers of the unfortunate situation. Its timely launch in the UK, a day after lockdown began, led to many more subscribers than expected.Cineworld’s acquisition anguishCineworld’s acquisition of Regal Entertainment two years ago set it up to be the second-largest cinema chain on the planet. It then set its sights on Cineplex, which excited shareholders and could have set up the Cineworld share price for a big boost as it would have brought it into first place as the world’s biggest cinema chain. Unfortunately, the pandemic panic snatched this dream away and Cineworld pulled out of the deal. On one hand, it was unlikely to be able to afford the acquisition, but now it has saddled itself with the threat of a lawsuit, as Cineplex states it had no right to withdraw.In many ways, I think Cineworld’s ambition should be respected. It was taking a risk in attempting to corner the market. Had it pulled it off, shareholders would have been delighted. Unfortunately, it was not to be. Cineworld, a £483m company, now has a debt liability approaching $4bn (it reports in dollars), not a figure to be taken lightly. It does have debt and credit facilities in place, but their repayment surely depends on visitors returning to screens as soon as possible.Cineworld is a heavily shorted stock, meaning there are many financial analysts betting on its demise. I think that very much depends on how quickly people return to cinemas. Full capacity is a long way off, and its share price may well fall further. In the near term I do not think it will go to zero, but if things do not improve, this remains a possibility.

197 £1m or higher gifts made in 2012, worth 9% more than previous year

But these biggest charitable gifts also have a hugely enriching impact on the lives of the donors.“The benefits that mega-givers say they receive include feelings of satisfaction at making good things happen, the enjoyment of meeting the interesting people they fund, a belief that their life is more meaningful as a result of their generous act, and pleasure at leaving a tangible legacy that will make their descendants proud.”Expanding major gift research internationallyCoutts has this year expanded the research to include the USA, Russia, Middle East (Gulf Cooperation Council), China and Hong Kong in a new ‘Million Dollar Donors Report‘. Compiled in association with the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, this looks at $1 million-plus giving by donors  in the six respective regions.Mark Evans, Managing Director, Coutts Institute, said:“Not only is it clear that individuals, foundations and corporates, who are giving at this level, are making a significant impact in areas such as higher education, it’s also an opportunity to learn why they are making these decisions and how. By understanding the causes and communities million dollar donors are passionate about, the ideas they have and the ways they like to work with others we hope to inspire and inform philanthropists, charities and others at all levels.”Dr Breeze welcomed the expansion of the study. She said:“The growing importance of philanthropy in countries all over the world needs to be accompanied by the growing availability of credible, useful data. This report makes a much-needed contribution to our global understanding of the frequency and the nature of transfers of private wealth in service of the public good.”Both the Coutts Million Pound Donors Report and the Million Dollar Donors Report can be downloaded for free from Coutts.

They also brought the total of journalists held in Iran to at least 16, making it the biggest prison for journalists in the Middle East. Reporters Without Borders called for the immediate release of all them.Meanwhile, an appeal court on 17 June upheld a prison sentence passed in April on journalist Ali-Reza Jabari, a contributor to several independent newspapers including Adineh, but reduced the term from four to three years. As well as a prison term, Jabari had been sentenced on 19 April to 253 lashes and a fine of 6 million rials (about 1,000 euros). The official charge against Jabari was “consuming and distributing alcoholic drinks, adultery and immoral acts” although his real offence was to belong to a writers’ association and contribute articles to news websites based abroad.Following expressions of concern by Reporters Without Borders about the location of journalists detained in the past 10 days, Tehran state prosecutor Said Mortazavi reported that Teirani and Taghi Rahmani, a journalist with the weekly Omid-e-Zangan, Reza Alijani, editor of the monthly Iran-e-Farda and winner of the Reporters Without Borders – France Foundation press freedom prize in 2001, and Hoda Saber, a member of Iran-e-Farda’s senior staff were being held in Evine prison in Tehran.The daughter of Ensafali Hedayat, a journaliste with Salam arrested on 16 June in Tabriz university in the north of the country, learned that he was detained in Tabriz’s main prison. He was beaten by police at the time of his arrest.Prosecutor Mortazavi also told the family of journalist Amin Bozorgian, which had received no word of him since his arrest on 15 June, that he was officially detained. The prosecutor threatened the families of detained journalists (including the wives of Rahmani and Alijani) for saying they had been detained illegally.Mohsen Sazgara, the editor of the website Alliran and the (closed) reformist daily Jameh, has been on hunger strike since his arrest on 15 June. He has a heart ailment and the state of his health is a matter of concern. His wife has also started a hunger strike to protest against her husband’s imprisonment.All of these journalist are alleged to have incited students to revolt. Many anti-government protests have been staged around the main university campus in Tehran and other major cities since 10 June, in the course of which police and militiamen in civilian dress have targeted journalists. The regime has also put heavy pressure on the ISNA and ILNA news agencies, which have been covering these events closely.The relatives of Abbas Abdi, a journalist with Salam who has been imprisoned since 4 November 2002, have meanwhile voiced concern about his health. Abdi, who is being held in a separate cell and who was in poor health at the time of their last prison visit, told them he nonetheless planned to go on hunger strike if he was not granted a few days of release, as required by the Iranian law.

Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/D.LangA new understanding of our galaxy’s structure began in an unlikely way: on Twitter. A research effort sparked by tweets led scientists to confirm that the Milky Way’s central bulge of stars forms an “X” shape. The newly published study uses data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission.The unconventional collaboration started in May 2015 when Dustin Lang, an astronomer at the Dunlap Institute of the University of Toronto, posted galaxy maps to Twitter, using data from WISE’s two infrared surveys of the entire sky in 2010. Infrared light allows astronomers to see the structures of galaxies in spite of dust, which blocks crucial details in visible light. Lang was using the WISE data in a project to map the web of galaxies far outside our Milky Way, which he made available through an interactive website.But it was the Milky Way’s appearance in the tweets that got the attention of other astronomers. Some chimed in about the appearance of the bulge, a football-shaped central structure that is three-dimensional compared to the galaxy’s flat disk. Within the bulge, the WISE data seemed to show a surprising X structure, which had never been as clearly demonstrated before in the Milky Way. Melissa Ness, a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany, recognized the significance of the X shape, and contacted Lang.The two met a few weeks later at a conference in Michigan, and decided to collaborate on analyzing the bulge using Lang’s WISE maps. Their work resulted in a new study published in the Astronomical Journal confirming an X-shaped distribution of stars in the bulge.“The bulge is a key signature of formation of the Milky Way,” said Ness, the study’s lead author. “If we understand the bulge we will understand the key processes that have formed and shaped our galaxy.”The Milky Way is an example of a disk galaxy — a collection of stars and gas in a rotating disk. In these kinds of galaxies, when the thin disk of gas and stars is sufficiently massive, a “stellar bar” may form, consisting of stars moving in a box-shaped orbit around the center. Our own Milky Way has a bar, as do nearly two-thirds of all nearby disk galaxies.Over time, the bar may become unstable and buckle in the center. The resulting “bulge” would contain stars that move around the galactic center, perpendicular to the plane of the galaxy, and in and out radially. When viewed from the side, the stars would appear distributed in a box-like or peanut-like shape as they orbit. Within that structure, according to the new study, there is a giant X-shaped structure of stars crossing at the center of the galaxy.A bulge can also form when galaxies merge, but the Milky Way has not merged with any large galaxy in at least 9 billion years.“We see the boxy shape, and the X within it, clearly in the WISE image, which demonstrates that internal formation processes have driven the bulge formation,” Ness said. “This also reinforces the idea that our galaxy has led a fairly quiet life, without major merging events since the bulge was formed, as this shape would have been disrupted if we had any major interactions with other galaxies.”The Milky Way’s X-shaped bulge had been reported in previous studies. Images from the NASA Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite’s Diffuse Infrared Background Experiment suggested a boxy structure for the bulge. In 2013, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics published 3-D maps of the Milky Way that also included an X-shaped bulge, but these studies did not show an actual image of the X shape. Ness and Lang’s study uses infrared data to show the clearest indication yet of the X shape.Additional research is ongoing to analyze the dynamics and properties of the stars in the Milky Way’s bulge.Collaborating on this study was unusual for Lang — his expertise is in using computer science to understand large-scale astronomical phenomena, not the dynamics and structure of the Milky Way. But he was able to enter a new field of research because he posted maps to social media and used openly accessible WISE data.“To me, this study is an example of the interesting, serendipitous science that can come from large data sets that are publicly available,” he said. “I’m very pleased to see my WISE sky maps being used to answer questions that I didn’t even know existed.”NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, manages and operates WISE for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The spacecraft was put into hibernation mode in 2011, after it scanned the entire sky twice, thereby completing its main objectives. In September 2013, WISE was reactivated, renamed NEOWISE and assigned a new mission to assist NASA’s efforts to identify potentially hazardous near-Earth objects.For more information on WISE, visit http://www.nasa.gov/wise EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You: The Library

first_imgThe Ocean City Free Public Library’s new Bookmobile will carry books, DVDs and periodicals. It will provide Internet access, a printer and docking stations. The Ocean City Free Public Library introduced the community on Wednesday evening to its new Bookmobile — a new van in which “the book goes to the man, not waiting for the man to come to the book.”Library staff and trustees, including Library Director Karen Mahar, center, cut the ribbon a the official “rollout” of the Ocean City Free Public Library’s Bookmobile.The quote is from Mary Titcomb, a librarian from Maryland who created the first “bookmobile” in 1905, a horse-drawn wagon carrying books to readers in the countryside.But the concept hasn’t changed much over the past 110 years, according to Jennifer Shirk, president of the Ocean City Library Board of Trustees.She said convenience, ease of use and better access to library services for the north and south ends of the island led the library to explore the idea of the Bookmobile.Unlike the original wagon, Ocean City’s Bookmobile will deliver more than books. It will provide wireless Internet access, a wireless printer, docking stations to charge smartphones and laptops. It will carry DVDs and periodicals, as well as books.Assistant Library Director Leslie Clarke performs a children’s puppet show.The vehicle will serve old and young, stopping at or near disabled patrons, preschools, nursing homes and at regularly scheduled points spread across the island. Because it will be able to carry only a limited inventory, patrons will be able to request books or other materials for when the Bookmobile returns.The Bookmobile also will cater to vacationers and newcomers, providing a sample of the library’s services and serving as a public relations tool. Anybody will be able to sign up for a library card on board.A regular schedule for Bookmobile routes and stops is currently under development  and will be available on the library website, according to Assistant Library Director Leslie Clarke.Clarke performed an impromptu children’s puppet show on Wednesday evening, a small sample of the features the Bookmobile could offer as it travels through Ocean City.The show was part of a brief ceremony and ribbon-cutting led by Library Director Karen Mahar.last_img read more
