The builder of the Gherkin and Heron Tower skyscrapers said it hopes to sell 800 homes a year by 2015. “The financial crisis and the dramatic decline in the housing market have now created excellent opportunities for entry as a residential developer,” Skanska said in a statement. The company, which has large housbuilding operations throughout Europe, said it also plans to enter the Polish residential market. British property builders including Barratt, Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon have all voiced concerns about the strength of the recovery in the UK property market in recent months.

Events I think that could send AstraZeneca shares rallying in 2021

first_imgEvents I think that could send AstraZeneca shares rallying in 2021 Jay Yao | Monday, 25th January, 2021 | More on: AZN Image source: Getty Images FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Although AstraZeneca (LSE:AZN) shares didn’t decline in 2020, they haven’t rallied like many other FTSE 100 stocks have in the past three months either. One reason could be that some of the potentially positive events for AZN in 2020 didn’t turn out to be as great as expected. Many investors, for example, regarded AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine as one of the leaders for much of its development phase. When it came to end results, however, AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine efficacy rate wasn’t as great as Pfizer or Moderna’s.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…Fortunately, it’s a new year. With the new year comes new potential events. With that in mind, here are some potential events that I think could send AstraZeneca shares higher.Important events for AstraZeneca shares in 2021I reckon 2021 could be an eventful year for AstraZeneca as the company could release numerous phase 3 trial results that could give more information into the value of AZN’s pipeline. If more key assets of AstraZeneca’s pipeline are approved than expected, AZN has the potential to go higher.This year could also be important as AZN’s Alexion purchase is expected to close in Q3.Management expects the Alexion purchase to help with profitability and core operating margin in the short term. Management also expects recurring run-rate pre-tax synergies of $500 million by the end of the third year after the deal closes. With this timeline, AstraZeneca management has a chance to show how they are executing on the deal via outlook and potentially Q3/Q4 results. If the merger goes better than expected, I think there is also a chance for AstraZeneca shares to go higher.Other important AZN events include how much money the company makes from its Covid-19 vaccine if management were to decide on that path. In terms of its Covid-19 vaccine, AZN has committed to not profiting before the ‘pandemic period’, but not after it. According to earlier releases, management has defined the ending of the pandemic period as the start of July of 2021. Another key event could be whether the company’s long acting monoclonal antibody combination for Covid-19 is approved. In terms of the antibody combination, there could be demand from those whose immune system doesn’t respond to traditional vaccines if the combination works well and is approved.Last but not least, I think the earnings reports of AZN will be important. If the company beats the market estimates, there is potential for a rally in shares.Would I buy shares?Long term, I reckon AZN is in a great position. As the speed of developing a Covid-19 vaccine shows, technology is rapidly advancing. While it took several years at the earliest to develop vaccines before, it has now taken just around a year to come up with a vaccine for the pandemic. Pharmaceutical companies like Moderna are more efficient because they have faster computers and more RNA technology experience. Scientists could also potentially use the recent AI-unlocked protein-folding breakthrough to help fight future outbreaks.Because I think management will harness many of the future technology advancements successfully, I’d buy and hold AstraZeneca shares.

How to choose the right Christmas gift: tips from psychological research

first_img Please enter your comment!

Camilleri, Senior Lecturer in Marketing, University of Technology SydneyChristmas is a time of celebration, relaxation and gift giving.But choosing gifts can also make it a time of stress and anxiety. The wrong gift can actually do more harm than good.Here is some advice, based on decades of research, on how to side-step such pitfalls.Why do we give gifts?Research into the psychology of gift-giving suggests there are two goals to consider when giving someone a gift.The first is to make the recipient happy. That mostly depends on whether the gift is something they want.The second is to strengthen the relationship between giver and recipient. This is achieved by giving a thoughtful and memorable gift – one that shows the giver really knows the recipient. Usually this means figuring out what someone wants without directly asking.You can see the conundrum.To get someone the gift they most desire, the obvious thing to do is ask. This approach can achieve high marks on desirability. But it is set up to fail on communicating thoughtfulness.The following graphic illustrates the problem (with myself as the example recipient).Two dimensions to consider when buying someone a gift: thoughtfulness and desirability. Images from https://pixabay.com/The best kind of gift is one both desired by the recipient and is thoughtful. For me this might be a custom t-shirt printed with an in-joke.The worst kind of gift, on the other hand, is neither desired nor thoughtful. For me, this might be a pair of socks.Then there are desirable but unthoughtful gifts, such as cash, and undesired but very thoughtful gifts, which for me would be officially naming a star in my honour. I love astronomy but this just isn’t for me.Navigating social riskThis is why buying a gift can be so anxiety-inducing. There is a “social risk” involved.A well-received gift can improve the quality of relationship between giver and recipient by increasing feelings of connection, bonding, and commitment. A poorly received gift can do the opposite.This has been shown by research. A 1999 study asked 129 people to describe in detail a situation in which they had received a gift. Ten people reported gifts that weakened the relationship. Two people actually ended the relationship after the gift.The thought doesn’t count as much as you think. Gift givers tend to overestimate how well unsolicited gifts will be recieved.How much does the thought count?Research also shows people tend to overestimate their ability to discern what a recipient will like, and therefore what gifts will lead to a strengthening of the relationship.A 2011 study asked respondents to think back to either their own wedding or a wedding to which they were a guest. Gift recipients were asked to rate how appreciative they were of gifts either listed on the gift registry or not. Guests were asked to estimate how well they thought gifts were received.Gift recipients strongly preferred gifts on their list. However, gift givers tended to wrongly assume unsolicited gifts (those not on the registry) would be considered more thoughtful and considerate by their intended recipients than was the case.Gift givers also tend to overestimate that more expensive gifts will be received as being more thoughtful. But it turns out gift recipients appreciate expensive and inexpensive gifts similarly. In reality, they actually feel closer to those who give convenient gifts, such as a gift certificate to a nearby ordinary restaurant rather than a distant upscale restaurant.The psychology of cashWhat about simply giving cash?After all, the recipient can buy exactly what they most desire. But cash is considered unthoughtful because it requires no effort and seems to put a dollar value on the relationship.In Chinese cultures, cash is given in a red envelope to decommodify the money by literally enveloping it in a symbol of good luck. If you’re going to give cash, think about doing it creatively, such as through clever origami or in some other way that personalises it. This will show a degree more thoughtfulness.The closest alternative to cash is the gift card. The main benefit is that it requires some effort and allows some thoughtfulness in the selection of which gift card to purchase. Nevertheless, the research suggests the gift card is often reached for as a last resort.The best gift of allIf you want to have a wrapped gift under the Christmas tree and haven’t been tipped off on exactly what the recipient wants, go for something practical with a personalized touch. If you really are struggling, then a thoughtful card together with a flexible gift card is a safe option.But the main takeaway from the psychology of gift-giving research is that, if your goal is to strengthen your relationship with the recipient, give them an experience.A 2016 study asked people to give a friend either a “material” or “experiential” gift (valued at $15). Material gifts included things such as clothing. Experiential gifts included things such as movie tickets. Recipients of the experiential gifts showed a stronger improvement in relationship strength than recipients of the material gifts.The most precious gift you can give a loved one, though, is actually quite simple: quality time. In a 2002 study involving 117 people, more happiness was reported from family and religious experiences than from events where spending money and receiving gifts was the focus.So this Christmas, grab a drink, sit down and have a conversation. Get to know each other. If done well, come next Christmas, you’ll both know exactly what gift to get each other.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Shutterstock You have entered an incorrect email address!

The project location, a bland suburban security estate on the outskirts of Johannesburg provided the framework and context for the project. The house directly responds to its physical and climatic environment, with a private, enclosed courtyard garden providing shelter from the relentless visual onslaught of the Tuscan and faux farmyard buildings surrounding it.Save this picture!Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtyard SectionSave this picture!The dwelling consists of two wings, one public and one private, connected by a vaulted brick entrance hall that encloses the building from the street. The public wing is a single large living space, with over-sized sliding doors that allow the northern façade to be opened up completely towards the private garden. A drum-shaped nook punctuates the rigid geometry of the plan and creates an ideal ‘snug’, an intimate enclosure from the open living area, whilst maintaining a visual connection with the living space and garden. A small scullery is tucked away behind the kitchen in a wooden box, seamlessly integrated as part of the kitchen joinery. In the private wing, each bedroom opens out onto a small covered veranda.Save this picture!Save this picture!Tower SectionSave this picture!The house and garden is arranged on one level throughout, apart from a brick tower leading off from the private wing. The tower was a request from the client who sought a space to retreat to where one can view the horizon. In a nod to the South African tradition of the economic use of brick, the same face brick is used in different applications including the masonry walls, external paving and vaulted ceiling. The external monolithic brick volume is relieved and enlivened by different patterns and perforations in order to provide solar shading, privacy and compositional balance.Save this picture!A restrained interior palette of natural materials, including green limestone, marble and timber provides a rich and inviting tactile experience in contrast with the monolithic brick exterior.

City bonuses mean more millionaires

Some estimates suggest that at least 6,000 people will receive at least £250,000. At Goldman Sachs for example, £4.45 billion could be shared amongst 15,000 people, with the majority going to the 165 managing directors of the bank.Some of these recipients will have received similar bonuses in the past, so these figures do not suggest new millionaires.

Kevin Samuel’s career day powers No. 20 Men’s Basketball past Oral Roberts, 79-62

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.TCU Men’s Basketball buried Oral Roberts early and did not look back, winning by 17, 79-62.“A little better, that’s what we want to do, improve each time out, and that’s what we’re going to do,” said TCU head coach Jamie Dixon comparing Sunday’s game to Wednesday’s nail-biting five-point win. “We made some shots today, I thought we were really good early, and then it just got away.”Dixon’s squad raced out to an eight-point edge early with an unselfish approach: all five of TCU’s first buckets came off of assists.“We really had good spacing today,” said TCU forward JD Miller. “Coach really emphasized that we have to have good spacing and pass the ball, that’s what we did.”Miller finished with 13 points and four rebounds to go along with his team-high seven assists.JD Miller passes the basketball down low to Kevin Samuel for one of his team-high seven assists against Oral Roberts. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.The stretch was an early part of an 11-0 run by TCU and ballooned their lead to 17, 23-6. Point guard Alex Robinson created seven of those points.Kevin Samuel, who opened the game with a dunk following a feed from Robinson, finished with a double-double (11 points and 11 rebounds) in his second career game.“Kevin is huge for us: he’s an amazing presence in the paint, a shot-blocker,” said Robinson. “Also, he’s tremendous on ball screens and rolls. He’s really good in the post as well, so he can hurt teams in the post in multiple ways.”Samuel attributed his growth to learning from last season’s all-conference big man, Vladimir Brodziansky.“It was a great learning experience having Vlad there to work with, asking him questions on and off the court,” said Samuel. “It was great to sit on the bench and see how they play and how Alex likes the ball screens.”TCU center Kevin Samuel posts up an Oral Roberts defender down low on the block. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Oral Roberts and their full-court defense fought back, trimming the Horned Frog advantage to as low as eight with five minutes left to play in the opening half.Both teams traded baskets to open the second half, but an alley-oop slam from Golden Eagle forward Kerwin Smith cut TCU’s lead to seven, 43-36, forcing Dixon to call a timeout.The Horned Frogs would score the next seven points to increase their lead to 14, with five of those points coming from junior guard Desmond Bane. Robinson scored the other two points on a mid-range jumper.Robinson led the team with 23 points and Bane finished with 22.“Those are guys we’re really comfortable with, they’re really comfortable with us and each other,” Dixon said. “Guys just have to play together. That’s what those guys bring and a better understanding of what it takes.”“We lacked intensity during the stretch, and we just had to fix that,” said Robinson. “After that timeout Coach called, we huddled up and got our situation back in order, picking up the intensity on offense and defense, which we really needed.”The lead eventually rose up to 20, 63-43, with 8:34 left in the game following a hook-shot from first-year point guard Kendric Davis. TCU would maintain their near-20-point edge with strong defense, limiting the Golden Eagles to 34 percent shooting in the second half.TCU point guard Alex Robinson leads the fast break against Oral Roberts. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Up NextThe Horned Frogs next game is against Fresno State at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Schollmaier Arena.The Horned Frogs are awaiting the returns of junior point guard Jaylen Fisher, redshirt sophomore Kouat Noi, and redshirt freshman Lat Mayen from knee injuries. Dixon expects all three will return to the court in the near future.Dixon said Fisher practiced recently and the team is being cautious with his return.
