Actelion, which is trying to cut its dependence on heart and lung treatment Tracleer, said clazosentan failed to meet its primary endpoint in the Conscious-2 trial in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage, a type of bleeding in the brain.The failure in the long-awaited Phase III study means it is very unlikely that clazosentan will make it to market, although a company spokesman said all the data still needed to be evaluated and the group would provide an update with Actelion’s third-quarter results on 21 October. Another late-stage trial is still ongoing. “We have four drugs on the market and a growing revenue stream,” the spokesman said. whatsapp Sharecenter_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Actelion shares fall after haemorrhage drug fails to impress in experts’ study Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

Kevin Godbold | Monday, 13th July, 2020 | More on: PZC center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Every day we face choices. And in the world of long-term investing, the decisions we make now can have a profound effect on how financially comfortable our lifestyles may be in retirement. So which are the best UK shares to buy now?One way of getting inspiration is to examine the moves of other well-known and successful long-term investors. I wouldn’t buy shares just because they have bought them. But watching others can lead to decent jumping-off points for your own research and analysis.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 may be one of the best UK shares to buy nowFor example, Nick Train has comfortably out-performed the market over the past two decades or so. He co-founded Lindsell Train in 2000 with Michael Lindsell, and is managing director and an equity fund manager.But for around nine years, he didn’t find a UK-listed investment to buy. However, that all changed near the end of 2019 when he bought a 1.6% stake in the FTSE 250’s PZ Cussons (LSE: PZC). The company deals in fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and owns well-known brands such as Original Source and Imperial Leather.It’s no secret that until recently, the PZ Cussons’ share price has been sinking. Revenue, earnings and cash flow have been trending broadly down for at least five years and the shareholder dividend has gone essentially nowhere. The firm had been struggling with poorly performing operations in Africa.But I reckon the relentless decline in the share price over the past six years has taken into account poor profitability in the Nigerian operations. With the stock near 186p today, the forward-looking earnings multiple for the trading year to May 2021 is just below 16. And the anticipated dividend yield is about 4.5%.Turnaround and growth potentialMeanwhile, Cussons has options. For example, it can sell underperforming parts of the business such as the recent disposal of Nutricima in Nigeria. And I reckon new chief executive Jonathan Myers will do everything he can to stem Cussons’ losing streak and restore the company to a growth trajectory.Myers started on 1 May, so it’s early days, but he is an experienced fast-moving-consumer-goods executive. He was previously chief operating officer at Avon Products with global responsibility for the supply chain, marketing, digital, research & development and IT. While there, Cussons reckons he was “a core member of the executive team delivering a successful turnaround of the business.”  Prior to that, he spent 21 years with FMCG giant Proctor & Gamble.I’m optimistic that Myers can lead a turnaround at PZ Cussons over the years ahead. Right now, I think the stock is attractive. But I’m also keen on some of the other London-listed FMCG companies.Previously, for example, Nick Train has bought large stakes in drinks giant Diageo consumer goods behemoth Unilever. Other shares I’m watching closely within the FMCG theme include AG Barr, British American Tobacco, Britvic, Nichols and Reckitt Benckiser. To me, these could be some of the best UK shares to buy now. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Hunting for the best UK shares to buy now?

HOUSE AM _ The project broadens an existing small house situated in a residential area developed in the ’70s: isolated houses of various shape, disorderly, looking closely to each other, over the hedges of leftover gardens.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaThe house shows surprisingly the fortunate presence of a back garden, to a certain extent, extraordinarily intimate compared to the street side. Here the new volumes find their location, lying on the grass.Save this picture!SectionThe wood coating, the white plaster and the base walls in exposed concrete reproduce some of the formal elements typical of the houses of the 70s, which were referring to some own traits of the contemporary Alpine architecture, taking on, in those years, a popular diffusion also outside their sphere of belonging.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaThe reuse of these materials, deliberately inspired from some of the best-known experiences of the modern movement, has the aim to approach the existing house without creating new fragments and working on a principle of extension instead of a pure juxtaposition. In this way, what has been added cannot be separated from what was already there, and this explains its presence.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaI imagined that the skin of the building could function as a device capable of providing clear information to the surrounding. The skin is supposed to be a kind of shield against the curiosity of neighbors.Save this picture!© Francesco CastagnaAccording to this logic the façade shows an intermingling of rejecting materials and wide inclusive openings. The metal sheet of the roof that turns up on the façade interprets this defensive act; the terrace, which is thrown at its side, is there to mitigate that arrogance. This continuous game of alternations is the rule of the project.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Berlage Public Events Spring 2014EventHouse K2 / Pauliny Hovorka ArchitektiSelected Projects Share Contractor: center_img Architects: Giampaolo Mazzon Area Area of this architecture project photographs:  Francesco CastagnaPhotographs:  Francesco Castagna Idroclima Roncato Snc “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/599903/am-house-giampaolo-mazzon Clipboard Ingegneria delle Costruzioni Srl Year:  Save this picture!© Francesco Castagna+ 23 Share Year:  Houses Stonework: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/599903/am-house-giampaolo-mazzon Clipboard CopyHouses, Extension•Treviso, Italy CopyAbout this officeGiampaolo MazzonOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionTrevisoHousesRefurbishmentItalyPublished on February 18, 2014Cite: “AM House / Giampaolo Mazzon” 18 Feb 2014.

The Houses at 1340 are a set of three, modern, turnkey homes in North Vancouver designed by mcfarlane biggar architects + designers (omb) for Harbourview Projects. Harbourview wanted to increase the density from the one, past-prime family home on the property, and to maximize the site’s unique characteristics: its unobstructed city views to the south and lush ravines — long-admired by Harbourview’s principals — to the north. They also wanted to gear the project towards a buyer who wants to partake in North Vancouver’s active lifestyle and natural amenities, as well as someone who wants a contemporary design — to stand apart from the typical, north shore bungalow — but without the hassle, cost or time commitment of a custom commission.Save this picture!© Ema PeterBecause there was no specific homeowner to create for, the team drew on their own experiences, interests and desires — as though they were the perspective buyers themselves. The team set the homes up to accommodate the challenges and joys of contemporary life, by facilitating a growing, ever-changing family. They also arranged the homes to maximize privacy, creating a feeling of peace and seclusion within the broader, busy urban area.Save this picture!Site Planomb set up the approach to the house to showcase the uniqueness of the aesthetic. Turning down a quiet cul-da-sac, the three identical homes, all clad in shades of grey, step along the sloping lot, resonating with the surrounding greenery as well as the nearby bungalows. From the street, two-vehicle carports with attached coach houses screen in an interior courtyard and create a sense of privacy on the ground floor. The massing of each home’s second level also plays with privacy. The upper level balconies are recessed within wrap-around enclosures, distinctive forms that are visible from the street, but which block out the site of the neighbours from within.Save this picture!© Ema PeterFor the interiors, omb devised floor plans for a multitude of modern living arrangements. Visiting relatives or long-term guests can stay in the coach house, which has a sleeping area. The basement, with a separate exterior entrance as well as interior stairs, also has a long-term guest suite, with its own bathroom and kitchen — ideal for a nanny or live-in care giver. Grandparents who don’t want to deal with stairs can stay on the main floor, which has three additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The main floor also has a north-facing family room with its own access so that it can turn into an office with separate, at-grade access.Save this picture!© Ema PeterSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ema PeterBecause the majority of the bedrooms are on the lower levels, the architects aligned the second floor so that the principal spaces take in the best views. The more public spaces — the living and dining areas — face south, to Vancouver’s skyline. The more private areas — the kitchen and the master suite — are nestled in the quiet of the ravine. The best of both views is experienced on the full, rooftop patio. The stair access is positioned so that it isn’t visible to the neighbours, creating the illusion of a completely flat roof. Once up top, the homeowners will enjoy an uninterrupted survey of their surroundings.Save this picture!© Ema PeterProject gallerySee allShow lessLino Russo’s “Skymetric” Series Highlights the Architecture of Milan ExpoArchitecture NewsGA Designs Radical Shipping Container Skyscraper for Mumbai SlumUnbuilt Project Share Houses at 1340 / Office Of Mcfarlane Biggar Architects + Designers Inc.

The fact that it’s down to two lanes is pretty frustrating and I have to leave a lot earlier to get places,” said Kendall Looney, a senior nursing major.The Fort Worth Water Department is putting in a new water line on University Drive next to TCU, according to Mary Gugliuzza, the communications representative from the department.“Most of the pipe is in the ground and they have made the connections from the old pipe to the new pipe. Now the construction workers are working on the street repairs and patching up University,” Gugliuzza said.Gugliuzza said that despite heavy traffic, there wasn’t another time to do this project and that the water department is working as fast as it can.TCU works closely with the Fort Worth Water Department to plan the construction, according to Harold Leeman, associate director for major projects and facilities planning.“We’ve gotten a good working relationship with the city,” Leeman said. “We have to get water plans through them.”“The city is putting new water pipes for drinking water in and they’ve had this on the books for quite a while to build,” Leeman said.Leeman added that the water department said they would open up the whole street on game days in compliance with TCU.The water department is working on more water repairs on Bellaire Drive North and Stadium Drive in January.The construction on University Drive will be finished in mid-October, according to Gugliuzza.

Rose Parade’s Seaworld Float Protestor Plans Unusual Court Defense

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Amanda Slyter—one of 16 protesters arrested for “interfering with a special event” after blocking the SeaWorld float at the Rose Parade— is scheduled to go to trial on Wednesday and her defense counsel reportedly will argue an unusual legal defense.Sources say Slyter’s defense team will argue that the capture and lifetime confinement of orcas in SeaWorld’s concrete tanks constitute an emergency that necessitates action and that, therefore, her disruption of a propaganda plan to support continued captivity must be permitted under law.This is possibly the first time that “necessity” (also known as the “less of two evils” or “greater good” defense) has been argued exclusively to justify action taken to prevent harm done to captive animals used in entertainment.Outside the courthouse, dozens of PETA supporters are expected to hold signs that read, “Boycott SeaWorld!”“Every day that orcas suffer in captivity, denied everything that is natural and important to them for the sake of a theme park’s bottom line, is an emergency,” Slyter says. “PETA and I are pleading with everyone to help these orcas by rejecting SeaWorld’s prisons—and by demanding that the orcas be moved to coastal sanctuaries.” First Heatwave Expected Next Week EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Make a comment Herbeauty10 Instagram Girls Women Obsess OverHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Is What Happens To Your Face After DermaplaningHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Calls for third Derry bridge linking Newbuildings and Letterkenny Road
