More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” A version of this article originally appeared on Fool.com.au, written by Ryan NewmanOne of the burning questions that is no doubt being asked by virologists, epidemiologists, medical professionals and politicians alike, is why Italy has been hit particularly hard by the novel coronavirus, Covid-19.5G 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…A quick disclosure: I am none of the above, nor do I claim to be any sort of expert. But I do have some thoughts to share.It Could Have Been Anyone…Until 15 February, approximately 99% of all reported coronavirus cases were limited to China. And within China, the vast majority of those cases were restricted to Wuhan in the Hebei province.There was also a large outbreak on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, located off the coast of Japan, with a breakout within that country as well. Singapore and South Korea also appeared set for a large growth in coronavirus case numbers as well.One thing to note is that all of these countries are located in Asia. Yet all of them have largely managed to get the situation under some sort of control.The first chart below shows the reported coronavirus case numbers for each of those countries, while the second chart shows the active coronavirus cases (that is, reported coronavirus cases minus fatalities and recoveries). Median Age (years old)31.347453838 As it stands, China now has 1.45% of the world’s active coronavirus cases (down from 99%, as mentioned earlier), South Korea has 1.79%, Singapore has 0.14%, and Japan has just 0.29% of active coronavirus cases (0.33% if we include the Diamond Princess cruise ship cases as well). In fact, as of 25th March Asia had just 12.7% of the world’s active coronavirus cases, compared to 64.2% in Europe and 19.6% in North America.One big reason why Asia appears to have handled the situation better than other continents thus far is that that continent has experience dealing with similar outbreaks. SARS in 2003, for instance, forced those countries to learn from their experiences and understand how to get the situation under control. While countries like Italy and the UKwere lucky to not have to endure the extremes of the SARS outbreak, we also didn’t gain those valuable lessons.As for why Italy has become the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis, I believe it could have been any other country just as easily. Many countries were slow to close their borders, including to passengers from affected cruise ships, and to understand the extreme implications they were facing.Perhaps the openness of the Eurozone also contributed to the rapid spread of the coronavirus.Why Is Italy’s Fatality Rate So High?Again, this is a question that many professions are desperately seeking an answer to. Based on the reported coronavirus cases, Italy’s fatality rate is tragically 10.7%. By comparison, outside of Italy the fatality rate is sitting at around 3.4%.It does not appear that Italy has a more severe strain of the coronavirus. According to The Washington Post, the coronavirus pathogen is considered to be fairly stable, meaning that it does not appear to have mutated significantly.In fact, famed epidemiologist Larry Brilliant, who spoke to Wired, said “there’s nothing in the virology that makes me frightened that we won’t get a vaccine in 12 to 18 months.”It’s also not due to a poor healthcare system — Lombardy (the worst affected region) has one of the best healthcare systems in the world (much better than the country’s south).Hence, it appears that there are other reasons why Italy has been struck so much worse than other locations around the world.There are a few reasons I can think of why Italy’s fatality rate might be so much higher.First is Italy’s median age. Here’s some data I pulled from Worldometers: The Motley Fool Staff | Friday, 27th March, 2020 I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Data Source: Worldometers What This Means For The UKUnfortunately, there have been reports of a number of Italian citizens breaching lockdown laws. In fact, there was even reported to have been a graduation party being illegally held in that country.One thing to note is that the UK moved on these restrictions sooner than Italy did, which is a positive, although we are still growing at a far more significant rate. Hence why the restrictions being set by the federal and state governments are so important, and why it is so important that individuals adhere to them.And again, although the UK has a younger population than that of Italy, this does not mean that an Italy-like situation is not possible, nor does it mean young people won’t experience severe cases.Although I do not enjoy writing about things such as this, I find that it is necessary to get as much information out there about coronavirus as possible, and hope that this information will help in your understanding of what is happening, and why it is happening.What’s Happening On The Share Market?The FTSE 100 Index finished in the black for the third consecutive day yesterday. Although it is impossible to know whether the market will continue to rebound, or if it has further to fall, these types of downturns do represent good opportunities for investors with a long-term focus to start nibbling at companies they like.Ideally, given the uncertainty of the current crisis, these businesses should have strong balance sheets to weather the storm. They should be nimble enough to continue operating in this environment (for example, while some companies will be forced to cease operations altogether, others can continue with remote operations or work-from-home policies).Foolish Bottom LineAt this time, it’s hard to know how to think or feel. Many individuals find themselves out of jobs, the share market has taken a battering, while we all find ourselves restricted from activities we have, for all our lives, taken for granted.Remember though, there are plenty of reasons to be hopeful, and that this, too, shall pass.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Data Source: Worldometers Global (Weighted)ItalySpainChinaAustralia Current Fatality Rate4.5%(3.4% excl. Italy)10.7%8.5%4%0.4% Enter Your Email Address The median age represents the age at which half of all people are younger than that age, and half of all people are above that age. Hence, 50% of Italy’s population is older than 47 (compared to 50% being older than 38 in Australia). Meanwhile, Wired reports that 23% of Italy’s population is over the age of 65.In other words, Italy has quite an old population. As the data shows, older individuals, and those who are immunocompromised, are typically the most vulnerable to severe cases of Covid-19 (although that is by no means to suggest that younger individuals are not at risk).It should also be noted that, although the UK’s fatality rate remains comparatively low, it will likely rise towards the global average, over time. Hence, individuals should not read this as a suggestion that the severity of the disease is not as bad in Britain as overseas.The second reason relates to how overwhelmed Italy’s hospitals have become. Without getting into detail, there are a number of horror stories relating to the choices doctors and nurses are having to make in Italy regarding which patient should be given priority treatment.According to the CIA, Italy has 3.4 beds per 1,000 people (data as of 2012). This compares favourably to the United States with 2.9 beds per 1,000 people (as of 2013).In a perfect world, every infected person would be given access to the necessary resources to give them a good chance at survival. But that is simply not possible when there is a severe shortage of ICU beds and hospital staff.This highlights the importance of social distancing and flattening the curve — by flattening the curve, we can ease the burden on the health system and give more patients priority care.And third, it may have something to do with Italy’s culture. In a nation where young people mingle more with their grandparents, it’s entirely possible that that has contributed to the rapid spread, and the higher load of severe coronavirus cases. This is why young people in the UK are being told to avoid seeing grandparents for the foreseeable future.An Improvement…Italy is the country with the second-most coronavirus cases in the world. It has 74,386 reported coronavirus cases, 7,503 fatalities and 9,362 recoveries. Meanwhile, 3,489 individuals are considered to be in a serious or critical condition.The spread has at very least slowed in recent days. In the past six days, the number of cases has grown 81.3%, compared to 93.7% in the six days to 25 March, and 102.9% in the six days to 24 March, as can be seen in the chart below. Hence, it does appear that Italy’s lockdown laws are having a positive effect, although it still has a very long way to go.last_img read more

Yachvili leads Biarritz to strong win over the Dragons

first_imgWednesday Dec 23, 2009 Yachvili leads Biarritz to strong win over the Dragons Biarritz continues to impress in the Heineken Cup as they beat the Newport-Gwent Dragons for a second time, cementing their place at the top of pool 2 of the tournament.It was a weekend of crazy weather conditions, leading to the match being moved to Parc-y-Scarlets, after the Friday fixture was postponed due to a frozen pitch at Rodney Parade.The Dragons were unable to make the first half pressure count, as they eventually went down 26-8 to the French side who had Man of the Match Dimitri Yachvili firing on all cylinders.The scrumhalf contributed all but three of his sides points, scoring two tries and kicking his goal kicks with ease. Richard Fussell scored a nice try for the Dragons after an intercept and neat kick ahead by flanker Joe Bearman.Aled Brew was sin-binned for taking fullback Nicolas Brusque out in the air in the second half, while Damien Traille slotted a dropgoal a short while later. Yachvilli scored one try from a short lineout move, then another following an intercept.Dragons coach Paul Turner admitted that Biarritz deserved the win.“The most disappointing aspect was that we didn’t produce the sort of performances that we showed earlier in the season. Our accuracy was not there, our skill level was poor and we didn’t look like a team.“It was disappointing to have to leave Rodney Parade because we were really looking forward to getting them on our home patch and putting some pressure on them, he added.“But they played a very tight game, they got their fringe game going and disappointingly we get sucked into playing the same way. Then Dimitri Yachvili did the rest.” Time: 05:09ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The heritage listed 1904 house had undergone numerous renovations over the years. Our clients, wanted to upgrade the existing house, add in a secondary garage, add a small studio space and upgrade the landscaping with a reasonable but modest budget. We gave them a sketch design that met their brief which they were happy with but in seeing the true potential of the site we went out on a limb and gave them another option demonstrating the full potential of the site and opening their eyes to a new way of living. Not really having greatly thought of the alternates or possibilities, our clients were blow away by the proposal and it snowballed from there. We basically reworked the whole house and reoriented the spaces to accommodate a growing family and a more modern lifestyle that was specifically tailored to our clients. The final budget ended up significantly higher but our clients could see the real value of what we were proposing and were happy to revisit and increase the budget. I truly believe it’s an architects job to go above and beyond to help our clients realise the true value and potential of their site. Often clients are unaware of the possibilities or, might need a little nudge to help them to reconsider any preconceptions they might have. At the end of the day, clients engage us for our opinions and experience but a house should first and foremost be for our clients, not our egos. These were dream clients too, nearly everything we threw at them (within reason) they took on board. They gave us their absolute trust which was somewhat daunting but we had absolute respect for, as did the builder and all the trades on site. Ultimately I believe their trust, backing and passion in all the people behind the project created such an amazing and unique home that we are all so proud to have been involved in.Save this picture!© Dion RobesonSave this picture!© Dion RobesonTo describe the extension itself, it’s a generous light filled space that centres around family interaction, entertaining and the environment with the integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. The aesthetic has a modern industrial vibe but with a touch of warmth and softness from the materiality and curved forms. Our belief is the mock reproduction of heritage buildings is futile so there is a clear and defined contrast from the ‘old’ part of the house. Each area holds architectural merit in its own right and its own era.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWith all the glass and skylights and high ceilings, the amount of light enters the house and the play of light around the house is just beautiful. It’s just such an amazing open and light filled space to be in.Save this picture!© Dion RobesonThe curved glass sliding door is a real feature and focal point. Everyone really loves having a go at sliding it. We also get asked about the timber a lot as it’s a very dominate – yet soft and textural – feature. It’s a Burnt Ash (thermally modified) cladding and we designed it in a random pattern to create some interest then deepened the tones with a rich dark ebony stain. We love the off form concrete the most, its raw and industrial but the curve really softens it. It’s such a permanent and unforgiving material that there is always a lot of stress when it’s being poured and then when the formwork gets stripped everyone holds their breaths. As a final finish, a lot of effort went into getting everything just right and to everyone’s credit the builder did an amazing job.Save this picture!© Dion RobesonProject gallerySee allShow lessPavilion of the Origins / Hung Nguyen ArchitectsSelected ProjectsCall for Entries: 2017 MAD Travel FellowshipOpportunities Share Houses Photographs:  Dion Robeson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more

The Premier Inn Clinical Wing will open in Autumn 2017 as part of the hospital’s Mittal Children’s Medical Centre, and will house a surgery centre and inpatient wards for children with infectious diseases, skin conditions and heart disorders, as well as those who have problems with their breathing, mobility or nervous system.Every bedroom will have an en-suite bathroom and room for a parent to stay, while the wards will also have room for the children to play, and for parents to take a break. GOSH is expecting to treat up to 20% more children once the facility opens.Premier Inn celebrated the achievement late last year when its top 25 fundraisers were invited to meet patients from the hospital along with Dame Barbara Windsor (pictured) on a specially designed float that then took part in the Lord Mayor’s Show.Premier Inn and Restaurant’s Simon Ewins said:“We are delighted to have raised £7.5million for GOSH and I would like to say huge congratulations to all our team members who have made this happen through personal challenges and team activities over the last few years. Our focus now is continuing our fundraising efforts and hopefully unveiling some more exciting plans for the partnership next year.”Premier Inn will continue to raise funds for GOSH, through sales of Bernard Bear, which is available in its hotels for £10 with all profits donated to the charity.Image: Dame Barbara Windsor at the annual Lord Mayor’s Show with GOSH patients Becky Parkin, 12, and Harvey Spanner 10.

first_img Reporters Without Borders hails a March 14 ruling by a federal district court judge in San Francisco that it is unconstitutional for the FBI to use national security grounds to request information about subscribers from phone companies and Internet Service Providers in a completely secret manner and without a court warrant.Sent in the form of so-called “national security letters” under the Patriot Act, these requests have prohibited the companies that receive them from revealing their existence without permission.This important ruling was issued in response to a case brought on behalf of an unnamed telecommunications company by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which defends online freedoms.Citing the importance of the constitutional and security issues at stake, Judge Susan Illston ruled that her decision would not take effect for 90 days in order to give the government the opportunity to appeal.Judge Illston ruled that use of the national security letters and their gag rule violated the First Amendment’s protection of freedom of expression. The fact that 97 per cent of the letters imposed non-disclosure requirements showed that they were being abused, she said.Other existing and proposed US laws also use national security grounds to threaten civil liberties and freedom of information. They include a new version of the proposed Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), which was unveiled in January and could come before Congress next month.The 2008 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act (FISAA), which was extended last December until 2017, gives the US government extraordinary surveillance powers that include accessing the data of non-US citizens who use cloud computing services offered by US companies.The US authorities can, for example, use the law to obtain a secret warrant from a special court to force Google to provide access to all the data – emails, files, contacts and calendar – of any client who is not a US citizen.Deep concern about the extent of these new surveillance powers has been voiced in a report entitled Fighting Cyber Crime and Protecting Privacy in the Cloud that was produced for the European Parliament and released at the end of 2012.Reporters Without Borders hopes that last week’s court ruling will encourage more challenges to laws that restrict online freedom of information and expression on the spurious grounds of defending national security and combatting terrorism.

Was Holman Johnson riding along the road and just happened to see the man plowing or was it planned? I couldn’t help but wonder.”Then just the other day, Aldredge Slaughter visited the museum and identified the man in the photograph as his grandfather, Aldredge “Boots” Slaughter and the ox as Jack.“Aldredge said the photograph was taken around 1944 on his grandfather’s farm in Good Hope,” White said. “And what made the photograph even more interesting was that Mr. Slaughter was the assistant postmaster in Troy and worked in the post office that is now the Johnson Center for the Arts from 1928 until 1965. On his days off, Mr. Slaughter farmed.”White said those who visit the “Looking Through the Lens” exhibition just might see someone they know looking back at them from a photograph or they might even see themselves as they looked years ago.The “Looking Through the Lens” exhibition is sponsored by the Alabama State Council on the Arts, Sen. Wendell Mitchell, the Manuel and Mary Johnson Foundation and The Messenger.Admission to the Johnson Center for the Arts is always free. Center hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
