first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It’s been a damp start to 2021 for UK share markets as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. The same thing can’t be said of the Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE) share price though. Shares in the cinema chain are up a whopping 20% since trading kicked off in January. Compare that to the fractional rises that the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have recorded in that time.There’s been no news in recent weeks to help the Cineworld share price spurt higher. Instead investors have been encouraged by the success of coronavirus vaccine rollouts in the US and Britain. It’s fed hopes of a mass reopening of its cinemas, which have been shuttered for months.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…Big risksCineworld desperately needs to get its sites open in the near future. The additional liquidity it raised in November will let it keep the wolves from the door until May. But there remain significant factors that could prevent the UK leisure share from reopening its doors in the spring. The emergence of Covid-19 variants, and their higher resistance to vaccines, is one major threat.There’s also the danger that the cinemas might be half empty even when they are taken out of mothballs. And this might not just be due to the enduring public health emergency.The rising popularity of streaming has long been a threat to UK shares like Cineworld. The danger has risen considerably too since the pandemic emerged as consumer habits have changed, perhaps forever. The Netflix subscriber base alone charged past the 200m marker by the end of 2020. Membership of rival services from Disney and Amazon has also ballooned. Cinema chains will likely have a hard job trying to drag this huge legion of couch potatoes out of their living rooms.I’d rather buy other UK sharesIt’s not out of the question that Cineworld and its peers could bounce back strongly when Covid-19 passes. People have been taking trips to the cinema in huge numbers since the first screen opened in Paris in 1895. This is despite the introduction of new mass technologies like television and the internet during the 20th century.The likes of Cineworld have invested heavily in their estates to retain their popularity. This UK share for example has been steadily rolling out its 4DX ‘extreme sensory’ technology across its British estate to boost the viewer experience. It has also been splashing the cash to freshen up its cinemas in a move that has proved extremely successful.All that said, I still think the risks facing Cineworld outweigh the possible rewards. I used to hold this share myself in my Stocks and Shares ISA until late last year. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had hung on for a little longer. I sold my shares a shade below 26p versus the 76p at which Cineworld currently trades. But I think my decision to sell will eventually prove to be the correct one. This is why I’d rather buy other UK shares today.

Required fields are marked * Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena firefighters rushed to the area of Washington Blvd. and Allen Avenue in Pasadena this morning shortly after 10 a.m. to respond to an emergency call about an exterior gas leak.Upon arrival, fire units immediately decided to evacuate people from the nearby Chase Bank and cordon off the area because of the heavy gas odor present.Lisa Derderian, Pasadena Fire Department spokesperson, said it would be prudent for residents to temporarily avoid the area for the meantime.“Exterior gas leak, heavy odor of gas on arrival, evacuated Chase Bank and they’re cordoning off that area now at Allen and Washington,” Derderian said. “We have firefighters standing by on a fire hydrant to keep that area saturated with water because that will dissipate the gas.”“It could lead to very serious situations so we want to make sure that we’re standing by until the gas company gets here,” Derderian said. “They’re usually quick so they should be there shortly.”Pasadena police officers were also dispatched to the area, Derderian said.A Southern California Gas Company spokesperson confirmed that SoCalGas crews responded after a third-party contractor damaged a small 1/2-inch line near a commercial building and caused a release of natural gas.“SoCalGas crews worked with first responders to make the area safe. We stopped the flow of gas at 12:22 and are making permanent repairs,” the spokesperson said.SoCalGas reminds residents and business owners to “call 811 before you dig” in the yard or at construction sites. Calling 811 or Underground Service Alert will help avoid possible injury or damage to hidden gas lines or service interruption while digging.

first_imgIn recent years, a good deal of ink has been devoted to the idea that a vibrant arts scene makes a community a better place to live. Best-sellers such as Richard Florida’s “The Rise of the Creative Class” have argued that cities can thrive by attracting creative types. And Americans themselves, as repeated Gallup polls have found, say that the variety of social offerings — primarily arts and culture — is the most important factor in keeping them attached to the place they live.But as many artists and cultural groups know all too well, public money hasn’t always followed public sentiment. With that in mind, the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations is launching a multiyear project to analyze links among funding, participation, and the vitality of the arts in six U.S. urban centers, starting with Detroit and the San Francisco Bay area. The hope, its leaders say, is to use hard data to develop bold policies to support the arts at the local and national level.In the United States, “the arts are treated as a public good and funded as a private good,” said Jim Bildner, a Hauser Center senior research fellow and an adjunct lecturer at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), at a panel discussion launching the new Initiative for Sustainable Arts in America. “The arts community needs to recognize both realities. There may be some public support going forward, but we have to figure out where our audience is, and how to reach them in a cost-effective way.”In launching the initiative, also known as SustainArts, the Hauser Center hopes “to have as broad a conversation as we can with as many stakeholders as possible,” Bildner said.That ambition was echoed during Thursday’s event at HKS, “Are Arts Relevant in a 21st Century World?,” which drew an overflow crowd. If the makeup of the audience — equal parts students in the Graduate School of Education’s Arts in Education program and veterans of the local scene — was any indication, the issue has captured the attention of arts lovers across generations.The arts have an important role to play in revitalizing communities, said Carol Coletta, president of ArtPlace, which in the past two years has awarded $29 million to 80 projects in 46 communities, from Anchorage, Alaska, to Little Rock, Ark., to Miami Beach, Fla. The foundation is primarily interested in how the arts make a community more diverse and vibrant; to that end, she said, ArtPlace gauges a project’s impact on a particular place by measuring its effect on factors like walkability and cellphone activity in the area.A vibrant cultural scene won’t transform a community on its own, Coletta said, but the arts should be a part of a “portfolio of strategies” to transform communities. Increasingly, arts lovers don’t distinguish between nonprofit and for-profit cultural organizations, she added.“People don’t make those distinctions when they’re thinking about what makes a great place,” she said. “In some cases they’re not making a distinction between the great coffee shop and the art gallery — it’s all part of the same thing.”As America’s demographics change, it’s also important for arts organizations to broaden their ideas of how people engage with the arts, the panelists agreed.Traditional Western arts such as opera and ballet may be losing out to technologically democratic art forms like photography and film, but that doesn’t mean communities can’t create targeted programs to draw patrons to the arts, whether through discounts for the opera or “random acts of culture” that bring art to the people. (The discussion paused at one point so the audience could watch a group of opera singers stage a moving rendition of an aria from “Carmen” in the shoe section of a department store in Miami’s Dadeland Mall.)“If you can make [the arts] important enough to people, they will come,” said Dennis Scholl, vice president for the arts at the Knight Foundation, a nonprofit funding organization. “But you have to create an atmosphere where you can look around and say, ‘It’s not just me and blue-haired ladies.’ You have to create a scene.”Also, “The idea of a national arts policy won’t originate from the Beltway,” Scholl said. “It’s going to originate from the grassroots communities that we all live in. It’s going to originate block by block, person by person, where people demand it. That’s only going to happen when arts organizations become parts of their community.” (As the speakers noted, the National Endowment for the Arts, the single largest federal funder of arts programs, has a relatively paltry budget of $146 million, a figure that has declined by more than 10 percent since 2010.)Now may be exactly the right moment to address the need for stronger public arts policies, Scholl said. With the larger economy hurting municipal budgets, he said, mayors can no longer “throw money” at companies to keep employers and commerce in their cities. As a result, leaders are looking for cheaper, more creative solutions to help their communities thrive, like promoting a robust cultural scene.“They’re starting to look for other ways to make a place where people want to be,” Scholl said. That may be more important than ever, he added, as recent studies have shown that Millennials decide where to live before they decide what kind of job they’re looking for.Ultimately, what the country needs to ask itself, Scholl said, is whether it considers the arts a vital national interest.“We have a national defense policy, a housing policy, a transportation policy, a commerce policy,” he said. “We don’t have a cultural policy, we don’t have an arts policy. Are we the poorer for it?”The Hauser Center’s initiative aims to answer that question with a mix of data and advocacy. In each city it plans to study — the Detroit project is under way — SustainArts will draw on collaboration with a number of research partners and funders to map the local “arts ecology,” providing data visualization tools that will allow planners to see how people participate in the arts and what drives participation.Detroit, for example, added a small tax last summer to fund its arts programming. Residents grumbled before the tax was passed, Bildner said, but attendance at the Detroit Institute of Arts has skyrocketed. It’s an example of the kind of incentives that organizations should be studying as they look for ways to make citizens feel like stakeholders in the arts.“The arts and culture sector, by its nature, has many voices and lots of opinions about why things are the way they are, but there’s very little factual basis to ground that conversation,” Bildner said after the event. “We’re hopeful that we’ll give communities a basis of facts to influence how they respond to change, and that we’ll enable communities to take responsibility for their arts and culture organizations.”last_img read more

How about those times you had to call to check your account balances?Banking looks very different today.

first_img 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) applauds the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for moving quickly to implement the Helping Expand Lending Practices in Rural Communities (HELP) Act. The rule, which became effective March 31, represents a victory for credit unions, and as mentioned in a letter sent to the CFPB Thursday, will help credit unions provide more credit to consumers in rural and underserved areas.“Thank you for making these changes to the Regulation Z mortgage rules, which will allow more consumers to achieve the American dream of home ownership,” reads CUNA’s letter. “CUNA believes this interim final rule is an excellent example of how exemptions to regulatory requirements can be provided for responsible lenders such as credit unions, and we look forward to future efforts by the CFPB to focus its rulemakings on the problem actors in the industry.”CUNA’s 360-degree advocacy was deployed through a number of channels to inform the CFPB of the credit union perspective and the need for reduced regulatory burden. CUNA’s legislative advocacy efforts led to the highway funding bill that includes the HELP Act being signed into law, and once passed, CUNA’s regulatory advocacy informed the CFPB of needed changes.Specific CUNA-advocated changes include:Credit unions only need one covered transaction originated in a rural or underserved area to qualify for the small creditor exemption. CUNA pushed for this threshold specifically, and though the CFPB could have chosen any numbers up to 49% of covered transactions, it chose CUNA’s advocated position; continue reading »last_img read more
