Yesterday (4 June) the National Basketball Association’s Board of Governors approved a competitive format for the restart of the 2019-20 season.This marks the first formal step on the path to resuming play in the NBA, which has been suspended since March due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The NBA and National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) are working together to build a comprehensive plan for the return of the season. Both say they are working with infectious disease specialists, public health experts and government officials to establish a rigorous program to prevent and mitigate the risk related to Covid-19.The proposed format would see 22 teams return with a tentative start date of Friday, July 31. The plan is contingent on an agreement with the Walt Disney Company, allowing use of Walt Disney World Resort, Florida as a single site for all games, practices, and housing for the rest of the season.The returning teams would be the sixteen teams in current playoff positions (eight per conference), and the six teams that are currently six games or fewer behind the eighth seed in their respective conferences.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The collapse of Thomas Cook in September meant the budget holiday package market was blown wide open. easyJet (LSE:EZJ) must have been licking its lips at the prospect of filling the void. The relaunch of its package holiday offering arrived in conjunction with full-year results in November 2019.5G 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…Recent trading updateLast month, easyJet lifted its forecast for revenue growth after enjoying what it described as “strong” trading in the first quarter of its financial year.The airline’s revenue rose by almost 10% to £1.425bn in the three months to 31 December 2019. The number of passengers carried climbed by 2.8% to 22.2m. This was a strong result in comparison to initial forecasts, which is always a favourable indicator.Passenger numbers were up 2.8% to 22.2m as capacity rose 1% to 24.3m seats and aeroplanes were 91.3% full, up 1.6%. I believe this to be a direct result of the Thomas Cook debacle. This meant the airline’s revenue per seat increased 8.8% in the quarter ending 31 December, which was 4% ahead of consensus analyst estimates.Full-year results and cost cuttingIn November 2019, easyJet released full-year results that revealed that pre-tax profits have slumped 26% to £427m for the year ending 30 September 2019, compared with £578m for 2018. Revenues rose 8.3% to £6.4bn, but total revenue per seat fell 1.8% to £60.81 due to “some weakness in consumer confidence.”It also announced intentions to make all flights net zero carbon and its goal to become the world’s first major airline to achieve this. This would come at a cost of £25m. To date, easyJet has maintained the £25m will not come from increasing ticket prices. Savings from a cost efficiency programme have totalled £139m, which is an impressive number. However, I am always skeptical about the long-term benefits when a company implements cost cutting measures. The verdictOn the surface of things, easyJet seems to be doing well with an increase in revenue and raised forecast. Much of the upturn, in my opinion, is a domino effect from the Thomas Cook scandal. Crunching the numbers in finer detail, this year’s dividend amounts are down 43.9p from last year’s 58.6p. That is, however, in line with expectations. The current price-to-earnings ratio is just short of 13, in comparison to just over 19 for the FTSE 100 index, in which it resides. Share prices in the last six months, since the first rumblings of the Thomas Cook affair, have seen an increase of almost 30% but reviewing performance on a day-to-day basis can sometimes seem like watching a yoyo. In comparison, the past five years have seen a drop in the share price of almost 30%. Make of that what you will. While there are positives to be taken from the recent results and updates, I feel there is always a high risk in investing in airlines. They are at the mercy of volatile fuel prices and competition is extremely fierce.My verdict on easyJet would be to prepare for a potentially bumpy ride if you do invest.

The Pitched Roof House evolved from a strict interpretation of planning codes that require new houses to have pitched roofs. The new house reinterprets the traditional pitched room. Unlike a traditional pitched roof, the triangles not only pitch up, but also invert to form a faceted roof plane. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe triangular geometry of the roof is continued down onto the facades of the house, and became the basis for articulating openings. The variability of the triangular geometry gave us the freedom to push and pull the building form as required to suit the brief of the client, the local town planning codes, the scale of the neighbouring roofs, and the requirement for solar access to the living rooms.

June 7, 2017 Georgia: NGOs call for full investigation into Azerbaijani journalist’s abduction GeorgiaAzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ViolenceImprisonedFreedom of expressionDisappearancesUnited NationsCouncil of Europe to go further Credit: EMMANUEL DUNAND / AFP Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and 22 other NGOs that defend human rights and media freedom have sent the following letter to Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili calling on his government to respect its international obligations and, in particular, to conduct a full investigation into Azerbaijani journalist Afgan Mukhtarli’s abduction in Tbilisi on 29 May. June 7, 2021 Find out more GeorgiaAzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ViolenceImprisonedFreedom of expressionDisappearancesUnited NationsCouncil of Europe RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan June 8, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Organisation News News Help by sharing this information Att.: Prime Minister of Georgia, Mr. Giorgi Kvirikashvili Parliament of Georgia 26, Abashidze Street Kutaisi, Georgia, 4600 6 June 2017 Dear Mr. Kvirikashvili, We write to express our deepest concern about the abduction of Afgan Mukhtarli, an exiled Azerbaijani journalist, on 29 May in Tbilisi. He went missing after leaving his colleagues in the evening, before resurfacing the following day in Baku in the custody of Azerbaijan’s state border agency. Mukhtarli reports that he was forced into a car near his home, tied up and beaten. His abductors put a bag over his head and 10,000 euros were stuffed into his pockets while crossing the Azerbaijani border. His lawyer Elchin Sadygov, who managed to visit him in detention, confirmed that he bore the marks of blows to his face and that he may have had one of his ribs broken. On 31 May, a court in Baku sentenced him to a three months’ pre-trial detention while he is now being charged with smuggling, illegal border crossing and violence against police authority. This disturbing development does not only expose Afgan Mukhtarli to the possibility of torture and a long prison sentence, but also sets a worrying precedent, threatening the security of dozens of other Azerbaijanis living in exile in Georgia. Numerous independent journalists, human rights defenders and other civil society activists fled Azerbaijan in recent years to escape repression, but they are increasingly becoming targets of harassment and persecutions abroad. They were hoping to find a safe haven in Georgia, but must now live with the constant fear of being illegally brought back to their country of origin. Afgan Mukhtarli’s abduction and illegal deportation to his country while in process of applying for asylum in Georgia is a clear violation of international law. The prohibition of torture, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment enshrined in Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, to which Georgia is a state party, clearly implies an obligation for each country not to expel, extradite or deport an individual to a state, where he or she faces a real risk of being subjected to this type of treatment. It is therefore Georgia’s responsibility to guarantee the safety of Azerbaijanis living in its territory and to prevent any forced return to their country. Afgan Mukhtarli’s abduction is a black stain on Georgia’s reputation as a leader in upholding human rights standards in the Caucasus region. The Azerbaijani authorities are engaged in a relentless war against their remaining critics. The Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Nils Muiznieks, stated in May 2017: “The situation in Azerbaijan continues to worry me. Since 2015, I have intervened before the European Court of Human Rights in seven cases, which are in my view emblematic of the human rights problems of the country: limitations to freedom of expression, shrinking space for NGOs, and official harassment of human rights defenders and their lawyers. While the applicants of the cases I intervened in are no longer in prison, we should not forget all the others who are still detained on charges which defy credibility, often after having expressed critical views against the authorities.” As the neighbour of such a repressive state, Georgia has a moral duty to maintain its historical role of welcoming Azerbaijani dissidents. We welcome the opening of an investigation into Afgan Mukhtarli’s “illegal abduction”. We hope that it will fully shed light on the abductors’ identities and clarify the potential role of the Georgian authorities in what happened. A clear message needs to be sent regarding that illegal actions of a neighbouring state on Georgian territory will not be accepted, and that any public servant implicated in such grave violations of international law will be held accountable. Georgia has co-sponsored all recent United Nations resolutions on human rights defenders. Most recently, Georgia was amongst the States expressing grave concern at the United Nations Human Rights Council – of which Georgia is a member – “that the practice of enforced disappearance is often used to repress and intimidate human rights defenders” (resolution 34/5 adopted on 23 March 2017 by the Human Rights Council, with Georgia voting in favour). The credibility of Georgia’s commitment to the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms is hence at stake. We thank you in advance for the attention you give to our request.
