One growth stock that has taken a big hit recently is electric vehicle manufacturer Lordstown Motors (NASDAQ: RIDE). Back in February, the stock was trading above $30. Today, however, RIDE shares are changing hands for $8.50. Is this share price pullback a buying opportunity for me? Let’s take a look at the investment case for Lordstown stock.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…Lordstown Motors: business descriptionLordstown Motors is an American electric vehicle manufacturer in the process of developing an all-electric pickup truck. Last year, the company went public via a special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC) deal. Currently, it has a market cap of about $1.4bn.Lordstown’s flagship vehicle is its ‘Endurance’ model. This EV, which is set to go into production later in 2021, looks quite similar to Ford’s F-150 pickup truck (which has been the best-selling vehicle in the US for a long time).Previously, Lordstown had advised that it was expecting to produce around 2,200 Endurance vehicles this year. However, yesterday, the company slashed its production guidance for the year and said that it will only be able to produce about half this figure, at best. Lordstown blamed a lack of funding for the cut in guidance.The bull caseThere are some things to like about Lordstown, from an investment point of view.For starters, the company operates in a growth industry. According to Allied Market Research, the global EV market is set to be worth around $800bn by 2027, up from $160bn in 2019. This industry growth should favour Lordstown.Secondly, there appears to be some interest in the Endurance from buyers. Earlier in the year, the company said that it had received over 100,000 non-binding orders for its EV from commercial fleets.The bear caseI have some reservations about investing in Lordstown Motors stock, however.One is in relation to a recent report on the stock from short seller Hindenburg Research. In its report, Hindenburg made a number of worrying claims, including that: Another concern is in relation to Lordstown’s short interest. Currently, this is around 33%. This indicates that short sellers (investors who are betting against the stock) are aggressively targeting RIDE stock right now.Finally, I think Lordstown is going to have some real competition on its hands in the future. As I mentioned earlier, Ford’s F-150 has been the best selling vehicle in the US for years now. Recently, Ford unveiled the new electric version of its F-150. This is set to go into production next year. I expect this vehicle to be popular with consumers.Lordstown Motors stock: my viewWeighing everything up, I think the risks outweigh the rewards here.All things considered, I think there are much better stocks I could buy. 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.

Dietsche, de la Diócesis Episcopal de Nueva York, sostiene una pancarta desde la plataforma de una carroza durante el Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual en Nueva York. Margaret, su esposa, aparece a su izquierda. Foto de Sharon Sheridan para ENS.[Episcopal News Service] Una gardenia blanca en el ojal y un anillo de diamante en el meñique de Steve Price fueron tributos agridulces en medio del multitudinario regocijo de la “Celebración de la igualdad” en la pro catedral de San Juan [St. John’s Pro-Cathedral] el 27 de junio en  Los Ángeles.De Los Ángeles a Nueva York, los feligreses se reunieron a lo largo y ancho de la Iglesia para celebrar, de manera muy pública y también muy personal, después que el Tribunal Supremo de EE.UU. derogara la Ley en Defensa del Matrimonio (DOMA por su sigla en inglés) y declarara inconstitucional la prohibición del matrimonio de parejas homosexuales en California (Proposición 8).Los fallos del tribunal extendieron muchos beneficios federales, que anteriormente les habían sido negados, a parejas del mismo sexo casadas en los estados de EE.UU. que permiten tales uniones y allanaron el camino para que se reanuden los matrimonios de homosexuales en California.“He estado librando esta batalla durante 30 años”, dijo Price, cofundador de la naciente Comunidad Episcopal del Espíritu Santo en Silver Lake, California.Al tiempo de celebrar el poder “experimentar el amor de Dios en este momento los unos con los otros”, Price dijo que su gardenia era un tributo a “los espíritus de todas las personas que no pudieron llegar a la meta”. El diamante era una herencia familiar que él convirtió en un anillo del meñique. Habría sido un anillo de boda, pero su compañero “murió de SIDA, no está aquí para la ocasión”.Otras personas en la celebración llevaban camisetas del orgullo homosexual con la divisa que nos resulta tan familiar: “la Iglesia Episcopal te da la bienvenida”.Mary Glasspool, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, suscitó exuberantes vítores y un prolongado y estruendoso aplauso —de parte de unos doscientos feligreses que asistían al oficio en Los Ángeles el 27 de junio— tan sólo con sus palabras iniciales: “Han ocurrido muchísimas cosas esta última semana”.“Es interesante advertir cuántas cosas parecen ocurrir a finales de junio”, añadió Glasspool, que en 2009 se convirtió en la primera sacerdote abiertamente homosexual y con pareja en ser electa obispa en la Iglesia Episcopal.Por ejemplo, dijo ella, el 28 de junio es el 44º. aniversario del comienzo de los disturbios de Stonewall, “esa serie de eventos que, para muchas personas, marcó el comienzo del movimiento por los derechos de los homosexuales en este país”.Y “el 24 de junio fue el 40º. aniversario del incendio deliberado de UpStairs Lounge en Nueva Orleáns, donde murieron 32 personas y que suscitó tan poca atención en su momento e incluso una vergonzosa falta de respuesta de cualquiera que ostentara alguna autoridad, incluidos los líderes de las instituciones religiosas”, añadió.Ella le dijo a la jubilosa asamblea que había elegido una de las lecciones de la noche (Romanos 8:35-39) “porque fue el único pasaje de la Escritura que me mantuvo en la Iglesia cuando yo le buscaba solución a mi propia sexualidad y creía que tal vez Dios me odiaba por ser lesbiana”.Pero añadió que, de tener nuevamente la oportunidad, podría haber elegido la parábola de los obreros de la viña (Mateo 20:1-16) porque “dice algo respecto a la  irresistible gracia de Dios dada a todo el que quiere recibirla, y a nuestra humana y muchas veces destructiva dificultad en celebrar los dones que otro recibe, en celebrar nuestra diversidad”.Ella exhortó a los presentes a pasar de “la igualdad a la solidaridad”, a aprender a regocijarse genuinamente con los dones que otros reciben. “¿Cómo podemos trabajar juntos para promover el reino de Dios?”.En muchos lugares de Estados Unidos también se estaba festejando la Semana del Orgullo Homosexual. Muchas celebraciones de la semana se fusionaron con las que provocaron los fallos del Tribunal Supremo.El obispo J. Jon Bruno, de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, asistido por la diácona Margaret McCauley y la arcediana Joanne Leslie, preside la eucaristía el 27 de junio flanqueado por dos parejas de homosexuales en un oficio en la pro catedral de San Juan “para celebrar la igualdad”. Foto de Janet Kawamoto.En la ciudad de Nueva York, más de 100 personas comenzaron el día en la Misa del Orgullo disco, en la iglesia de San Marcos en el Bowery [St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery]. El oficio comenzó la interpretación de “Sobre el arco iris” [Over the Rainbow] por Earl Giaquinto, que iba ataviado con los colores del arcoíris [representativos del movimiento gay], y terminó con una danza debajo de una luz estroboscópica y reflectores de colores.Con música en vivo que sonaba a sus espaldas, la Rda. Stephanie Spellers, canóniga para la vitalidad misional de la Diócesis de Long Island, celebró la eucaristía llevando puesta la casulla verde de Barbara Harris, la obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts, ya jubilada, y la primera mujer en ser ordenada al episcopado en la Comunión Anglicana.La segunda lectura del día fue un fragmento del falló del Tribunal Supremo que derogaba partes de la DOMA.“Tenemos muchísimo que celebrar hoy”, dijo en su sermón la Rda. Winnie Varghese, rectora de San Marcos. “Cuando el gobierno actúa a favor del pueblo, se percibe como una liberación”.Cuando Jesús afirmó su rostro para subir a Jerusalén, se dirigió hacia el centro del poder, lo mismo que hicieron los profetas, como Eliseo, para “proclamar lo que es justo en las ciudades del rey”, dijo ella. Varghese instó a los fieles a celebrar, pero también a continuar ese papel profético de luchar por los derechos de todas las personas.La Rda. Megan Sanders, rectora interina de la iglesia de San Andrés en Staten Island, reparte la comunión el 30 de junio en la eucaristía ofrecida por el capítulo de Integrity del área metropolitana de Nueva York a los manifestantes del Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual que no tenían oportunidad de asistir a la iglesia antes de participar en el evento a lo largo de la Quinta Avenida. Foto de Sharon Sheridan para ENS.En la calle 38 de Manhattan, la Rda. Megan Sanders, rectora interina de la iglesia de San Andrés [Church of St. Andrew] en Staten Island, celebró una eucaristía programada por el capítulo de Integrity del área metropolitana de Nueva York para los manifestantes que no podían asistir a la iglesia antes de participar en el desfile a lo largo de la Quinta Avenida. Sanders, que se casó recientemente con Kristin Robyn, dijo que había “llorado en mi auto durante todo el trayecto camino al trabajo” cuando oyó la noticia del fallo del Tribunal Supremo. “Estaba muy emocionada, pero también insegura de lo que esto significa y de qué manera protegemos a las personas que no están casadas”.En el desfile, los episcopales de las diócesis de Nueva York y Newark portaban estandartes de la Iglesia delante de una carroza. Andrew M.L. Dietsche, el obispo de Nueva York, y su esposa Margaret saludaban desde la carroza a la multitud que se alineaba a lo largo de las calles y que los vitoreaban y bailaba al son de la música de la carroza. Una pareja de dos hombres, vestidos de blanco, se encontraban [entre los espectadores] debajo de un cartel que decía “Recién casados hoy”. Uno de los novios expresó las palabras “gracias” al paso de la carroza. En varios lugares, entre ellos la iglesia episcopal de la Ascensión [Episcopal Church of the Ascension], hubo voluntarios que les ofrecieron agua a los manifestantes.“Me siento feliz de estar aquí” dijo Dietsche, haciendo notar el apoyo de la diócesis a la igualdad matrimonial y a la plena inclusión de las personas LGBT [homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales] dentro de la Iglesia. “Creo que la gente percibe [la llegada de] un nuevo día en Estados Unidos, y sólo aspiramos a ser parte de él y celebrar”.Luego del desfile, Dietsche participó y habló brevemente en las Vísperas del Orgullo [Homosexual] en la iglesia de San Lucas del Campo [St. Luke in the Fields].“Estamos presenciando, como personas de fe, un cambio monumental en los corazones y mentes de la gente… a una velocidad pasmosa”, afirmó.La carroza de la Iglesia “es de enorme importancia”, agregó. “Dice que la Iglesia Episcopal te da la bienvenida y ése es un mensaje en extremo importante de la Iglesia a la comunidad LGBT, porque no siempre lo hizo. Tal vez estamos empezando a sanar algo del daño que la Iglesia cometió en el pasado”.La Rda. Barbara Lundblad, pastora luterana y profesora de homilética en el Seminario Teológico de la Unión, en Nueva York, predicó sobre el pasaje de la viuda y el juez injusto del evangelio de Lucas.“Tenemos que seguir importunando hasta que todas las personas del país tengan el derecho al voto y tengan el derecho a casarse y tengan el derecho a ser bien tratadas, incluso las personas solteras”, dijo. “Es posible celebrar y seguir importunando. Puede ser la única manera leal de celebrar en esta época de nuestra historia”.Llevando una estola que hizo para oficiar en su primera boda [de una pareja] homosexual, la Rda. Susan Copley, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo y de la misión de San Marcos en Tarrytown, Nueva York, participa en el Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual en Nueva York el 30 de junio. Foto de Sharon Sheridan para ENS.Una celebración vespertina el 26 de junio en la Catedral Nacional de Washington fue “una noche jubilosa, llena de risas y lágrimas en la medida en que los que habían padecido de tan gran discriminación disfrutaban de un cambio de rumbo cultural y legal en nuestra marcha compartida hacia la justicia”, dijo el Muy Rdo. Gary Hall, deán de la catedral, en un sermón el 30 de junio.Las campanas de la catedral repicaron al mediodía “como señal de unidad con la comunidad LGBT”, según un comunicado de prensa de la catedral. Centenares de personas se reunieron en la catedral para celebrar los fallos del Tribunal Supremo.Más de cien personas asistieron a un foro de “elementos esenciales” en la catedral de Santa Margarita [St. Margaret’s Church] en Palm Desert, California, en la Diócesis de San Diego, según el Rdo. Lane Hensley, rector de la misma.Hensley, quien dijo que tiene programado oficiar en la boda de una pareja del mismo sexo en septiembre, explicó que el foro tenía por objeto comenzar un diálogo respecto a la viabilidad de vivir conforme a los fallos del tribunal.El 30 de junio, el obispo Mark Holmerud, del Sínodo de la Sierra del Pacífico de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América, predicó en una eucaristía al aire libre del Desfile del Orgullo Homosexual,  justo antes de su 43ra. celebración anual. El principal oficiante de esta  eucaristía fue el obispo Marc Andrus, de la Diócesis Episcopal de California.El día de los fallos del Tribunal Supremo, Andrus escribió en su blog que estar en la ciudad de San Francisco desde temprano en la mañana a la espera del anuncio de Washington D.C. “bajo la mirada de la estatua y el espíritu del martirizado supervisor de San Francisco, Harvey Milk, como hizo notar David Chiu, el actual presidente de la Junta de Supervisores,  era un modo de mostrar gratitud por la obra, el testimonio y el sacrificio de todos los presentes, de todos aquellos en muchos otros lugares, y de aquellos cuya labor echó las bases sobre las que ahora nos alzamos”.Andrus le dio las gracias al clero y a los laicos de la Diócesis de California “que han sido tan fieles en su lucha, durante décadas, por hacer realidad este momento” y a los obispos de las diócesis episcopales de California y a los obispos episcopales de 22 diócesis que se le unieron en la firma de dos testimonios de apoyo [amicus curiae] que se presentaron ante el tribunal en ambos casos.–La Rda.

Samoa beat New Zealand in dramatic Vegas Sevens final

first_imgMonday Feb 13, 2012 Samoa beat New Zealand in dramatic Vegas Sevens final Samoa beat New Zealand 26-19 in a dramatic USA Sevens Final in Las Vegas, claiming their first tournament win of the season. Today we’ve got highlights for you from every day of the tournament, with some of the best tries, as well as some great tackles. New Zealand aimed to pick up their third series win in a row but were undone by the mighty Alafoti Faosiliva with time up as the sides were tied 19-19. The huge man scored twice, with his second proving to be the winner for the Samoans, who had a huge amount of support in Vegas.“It has been a long time and these boys have been working so hard, and I couldn’t stop a tear or two rolling down my cheeks,” said Samoa’s coach Stephen Betham. “The boys really deserve it and they owe it to the people back home and the fans here in Vegas. It has been a long time since our last Cup victory,” he added, referring to their last series win back in December 2010.They have moved up to fifth spot on the overall standings, while New Zealand’s final placing puts them five points clear of Fiji at the top, on 92 points. “Samoa deserved it, they came at us. We had a chance to win it, but it’s the team that makes the least errors that wins,” said New Zealand captain DJ Forbes. “But still disappointing, you have to be hurting getting that far and tripping up, but Samoa played well.”South Africa and Fiji met for the third place playoff and it was the Fijians that won the game 21-15. Kenya won the Plate after beating Argentina 21-7, while Canada beat Australia 19-17 for the Bowl. Below are highlights from throughout the tournament, including the final, in three short videosADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Sevens Related Articles 66 WEEKS AGO Part three of the award winning USA 7s documentary… 107 WEEKS AGO Table topping Fiji fly past Australia to… 114 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Touching jersey ceremony for young… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Jonny Wilkinson seals Man of the Match performance with trademark drop goal

first_imgMonday Apr 29, 2013 Jonny Wilkinson seals Man of the Match performance with trademark drop goal The Heineken Cup Semi Final between Saracens and Toulon wasn’t much of a spectacle, but there was one moment in particular that stood out, as Jonny Wilkinson snapped a well taken drop-goal to cap off a record breaking performance.ADVERTISEMENTToulon won 24-12 at Twickenham, booking their place in the final of the tournament, where they will meet the highly formiddable Clermont, who themselves beat Munster on Saturday.Wilkinson was a clear winner in the battle of the boot, as he kicked seven penalties and an excellent dropgoal to get the better of young Owen Farrell. The England veteran may have played his way into the British & Irish Lions squad, while Farrell possibly played his way out of it.The man himself played down speculation that he may make the tour, but those who have watched him over the last few weeks can see a man who has marshalled a team of stars to the top of the French Top 14, and now, a European Cup Final.He has scored 45 points in the two knock-out games, kicking six penalties and a drop goal to defeat Leicester Tigers in the quarter final, and now this semi final record points haul of 24.The pressure is now on coach Warren Gatland, who announces his squad tomorrow (Tuesday), as fans, pundits, and players all offered their opinions yesterday following the superb all round game by the 33 year-old world cup winner.Reaction to Wilkinson’s performanceADVERTISEMENT“In my opinion the three 10’s would be Sexton, Farrell & Wilkinson.” – Dan Carter“He is masterclass. If I was an Australian, I would say don’t take Wilko for the Lions!” – John Smit“As an Australian, it’s good to be on Wilko’s side for once when he scores a drop-goal. Many times Jonny’s finished my World Cup hopes so I want to hate the guy – I’ve said this many times – but he’s a great guy and great for the team.” – Matt Giteau.“In terms of Lions tours, they are all about the here and now. If Gatland is looking for a kicking 10 then it is pretty hard to argue against taking him. He’s the best right now. In both the quarter-final and semi-final he has defined the game.”  – Dean RyanADVERTISEMENT“If you need to play a game where accumulation of points is based on powerful and direct running of athletic and large players, is there a better No. 10 available? When Gatland announces his Lions tour party tomorrow it will be a mistake not to have Wilkinson in it.” – Brian MooreBelow is the drop goal he kicked under pressure from Farrell, as well as the praise heaped on him by commentator Stuart Barnes. You can also view a short excerpt from his post match interview, and find out what he said to Farrell as they watched the ball sail through for another three points.Below is a short piece from what was a fascinating interview with Man of the Match Wilkinson after the game. Here he is talking about the final, but when asked about the Lions, he was as humble as ever.https://youtu.be/VTyC1Dv4k7c“The Lions is difficult for me because it’s not at all that I wouldn’t consider it, it would be fabulous,” he told Sky Sports. “It’s up there with the most amazing experiences you can get in rugby.“But I watch guys like Owen Farrell, Toby Flood, Dan Biggar and Jonathan Sexton and it is them who are driving rugby forward. Perhaps they should be the ones driving this tour forward as well.“I’m digging my fingernails in and hanging on really and watching these guys is what it’s all about.When asked what he said to Farrell on the floor, he explained: “I said, ‘Listen mate, that’s a bit lucky. I apologise for that one.‘ He smashed me as well.” Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Heineken Cup , See it to Believe it Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO O’Driscoll outlines Leinster domination 81 WEEKS AGO Finn Russell carves up Saracens with another… 125 WEEKS AGO Tries galore as Bristol AND Northampton break… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Villa Ryysyranta II is an evolution of an earlier design of a private villa, with the same principles of maintaining a delicate balance between the fragile pine forestry and beach landscape and tradition-based contemporary architecture. The villa was designed to subtly blend into the island’s unique nature with the vegetation remain mainly untouched. The facades consist of special treated larch, with the indoors utilizing oil-treated larch through-out.Save this picture!© Arno de la ChapelleSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Arno de la ChapelleThe treated larch has a beautiful, grey tone – thus rooting the structure firmly with its surroundings. The sparse placement, scale and shape of the building masses and material choices with transparent design throughout root the building firmly with its surroundings. The enjoyment of the outdoors is maximized through-out the seasons with wide glass openings and large terrace areas. The villa was designed with the unique terrain of the plot in mind with high-quality, contemporary solutions. The sparsely placed building masses create a small-scale appearance and as a result the structure doesn’t overshadow the surrounding nature.Save this picture!© Arno de la ChapelleSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Arno de la ChapelleThe interior spaces are placed on three overlapping levels, starting with separate, peaceful bedrooms on the ground floor, continuing to the main entrance and the lounge areas on the second level, rising half a level above the plot and offering striking views towards the beach and ocean.
