The Cineworld share price plummets on Warner Bros news! I’d buy other UK shares to get rich

first_img The Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE) share price has had a stunning couple of months. Hopes over a Covid-19 vaccine has helped the world’s second-biggest cinema chain to rise 126% since the start of November. It’s been the best-performing UK share on the FTSE 350 in that time too.It’s no surprise to see investors piling in. The spectre of its cinemas being packed to the rafters again means many see the business as a terrific turnaround play. But I worry that those who’ve got caught in the stampede are setting themselves up for a fall. Cineworld still faces significant structural challenges, worsened considerably by the Covid-19 outbreak.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…News late last night worsened the long-term outlook for cinema operators like this UK share. The Cineworld share price has slumped by double-digit percentage in Friday business as a result.Cineworld in danger?The threat of streaming services in a post-coronavirus landscape to Cineworld et al is considerable. Demand for services like Netflix, Amazon’s Amazon Prime and Disney’s in-house platform has taken off since Covid-19 lockdowns were introduced in early 2020. It could prompt a sea change in the way the world watches movies.The streamers have pulled their tanks directly onto the cinema operators’ lawns in recent months too. A slew of films such as Mulan on Disney+ and, more recently, Borat 2 on Amazon Prime have bypassed theatre releases entirely and been streamed straight into customers’ homes instead.Moves like this may have been prompted by necessity as movie studios scramble for revenues during cinema closures. But some filmmakers believe customers might be prepared to shun the theatrical experience entirely in favour of staying at home.Warner Bros piles on the painUniversal has signed deals with a cluster of North American chains recently to shorten the theatrical window. It could see cinemas lose exclusivity on playing the studio’s titles to as little as 17 days.The cinema industry received another possible hammerblow from Warner Bros in recent hours, sending Cineworld’s share price through the floor again. The studio went one step further by announcing that all its 2021 films will be released in the US on the HBO Max streaming service on the same day they hit cinemas.The news means Cineworld will lose out on a huge chunk of revenues that Warner Bros’ upcoming blockbusters, including Dune and The Matrix 4, would have provided. And it’s particularly bad news for this particular UK share. It desperately needs to start pulling in the punters to pay down its colossal debt pile.Cineworld faces considerable near-term uncertainty. Rocketing Covid-19 infection rates in its key US market threaten to keep its theatres empty. Possible setbacks with coronavirus vaccine rollouts could cause it to go back to the well for further financing too. The risks in the short term and beyond remain considerable. So I’ll continue to ignore the Cineworld share price and buy other UK shares instead. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The Cineworld share price plummets on Warner Bros news!

Designed as an answer to the UK’s urgent need for cost-effective housing, the prototype demonstrates a method of building “high-quality, well-designed houses significantly cheaper than other traditional methods of construction.”RSHP, known for their large-scale projects, envisage Homeshell as part of a wider platform which could encompass apartments, schools, factories and healthcare centers.Save this picture!© Ana Au, via Rogers Stirk Harbour + PartnersThe house was constructed on-site in 24 hours using Insulshell, a closed frame timber panel system described by RSHP as “energy efficient, adaptable, simple, and very low tech.” Due to high levels of acoustic and thermal insulation, “the system offers the potential to reduce energy bills by up to 90%,” with the panels also being fire and water retardant, as well as earthquake and hurricane proof.Save this picture!© Ana Au, via Rogers Stirk Harbour + PartnersThe prototype is part of Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out, a retrospective exhibition on view until October 13, 2013, documenting past projects such as the Pompidou Centre (with Renzo Piano) and Lloyds of London.

Feature Football Game: La Salle, St. Francis Meet Friday in Angelus League Showdown; Golden Knights and Lancers Take First Step Towards Playoff Spot

first_img Top of the News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  La Salle (4-1) at St Francis (5-0)In undoubtedly the biggest head-to-head game of the regular season for Pasadena-area schools, La Salle and St. Francis meet up Friday night in the Angelus League opener in La Canada.La Salle is coming off its bye week, and two weeks ago, a 28-25, triple-overtime win in Scottsdale, Arizona.St. Francis is back to work after knocking off and dominating previously unbeaten Buena Park last Friday.In its first two years in the Angelus League, La Salle has yet to win a league game, but this is a much more skilled and experienced team.There is no secret that La Salle senior running back Amon Milliner will likely be the game’s impact player.Milliner, who is considered one of the southern section’s premiere backs, has numbers most running backs would be proud to call a season.In five games, Milliner has over 1,100 yards and 12 TD runs.If La Salle is able to consistently open holes for the speedy senior, its chances of victory are high.If, however, the stingy St. Francis defense is able to stack the box and keep Milliner in check, a lot of pressure then transfers to the shoulders of senior quarterback Jake Caan.Caan has over 800 yards and 8 TD passes, and doesn’t make a lot of mistakes.The Golden Knights are coming off their best defensive effort of the year, as they shut down a Buena Park offense that was averaging 49 points per game, and held the Coyotes to a fraction of that.Junior linebacker Gabriel Grbavac’s imprint will also be a huge factor on Friday. Along with Grbavac’s pressure on Milliner and Caan, leading tackler Maxx Jakeway and Daniel Scott, who has a team-best 4 interceptions, will play enormous roles in a potential victory.Jace Harrick and Elijah Washington have 7 combined TD’s and 450 yards. They both bring different styles to the St. Francis running game, and both have been very effective.Michael Bonds has come into his own the last few weeks, and has over 800 yards and 11 TD passes.Receiver/defensive back Daniel Scott was unanimously mentioned when we interviewed La Salle players and coaches on Tuesday as someone that must be contained.Scott is as pure an athlete as anyone on the field, and his contributions on both sides of the field are equally vital.Scott has 6 TD catches and has over 300 yards receiving. His four interceptions and crunching tackles/breaking up passes, though, may be even more important than what he’s even done on the offensive side.If the Lancers earn its first victory in Angelus League play some two years after joining, Milliner would have likely had a big game, and Myles Cecil and Jake Rose will have led a Lancers defensive stand that kept the running game of Harrick/Washington in check, as well as putting a lot of pressure on Bonds.One player coming into his own of late for La Salle is wide receiver Harrison MacDonald, who is a deep threat and has a team-best 6 TD’s. MacDonald seems to make big plays when the Lancers most need them.With five total league games and Cathedral at 5-0, Salesian (4-1), and St. Paul and Harvard-Wesklake both at 3-2, each Angelus game has enormous ramifications.Quotable:La Salle Coach Russell Gordon: “Just playing St. Francis is a tall order. We need to slow down (quarterback Michael Bonds), and (receiver Daniel Scott) is a phenomenal player. They are peaking as a team, but I think we are as well. Jake Caan will be extremely important, and we’ll need to spread the ball around, but that’s no secret and something we do every game. Every team has known they had to stack the box and stop (Amon Milliner). We got placed in a division that is very tough to us, but we feel happy to be in this league. We feel some urgency to win. If we don’t turn the ball over and limit their big plays, we love our chances on Friday.”St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds: (Milliner) is a special running back and he is electric, but he’s not all they have. When they need to throw it, they have a quarterback (Jake Caan) who can throw it. We expect a dogfight like we’ve had the last three weeks. A lot of credit for our defense goes to (coordinator) Mark Gibbons and our defensive staff. He always has a great game plan and it’s up to the boys to go out and execute it. Any time you have a running back (Milliner) with over 1,000 yards in 5 games, that’s an eye opener. They do what they do very well. We have to eliminate big plays.”Keys to the game:For La Salle: Can Milliner continue his 200-plus yards on the ground, including averaging 2 TDs per game? If Milliner is kept in check, can Jake Caan shoulder the responsibility and lead the Lancers to a victory in the air. Can La Salle block the very stubborn defensive front from St. Francis? Will the Lancers minimize penalties that have hurt them in the past?For St. Francis: How much time can Jace Harrick and Elijah Washington take off the clock by controlling the time possession battle with the running game? Can Michael Bonds continue to lead the Golden Knights as well as he’s done of late and without any turnovers? Will Gabriel Grbavac be able to continue his giving opposing quarterbacks nightmares with his relentless pressure? Will Daniel Scott continue to dominate on both sides of the ball?*** For pregame player and coach interviews, please watch our video above where each side discusses strengths and weaknesses, as well as keys to victory.How They Match Up By the Numbers:CIF Rankings:La Salle #2 in Division 9; St. Francis #4 in Division 3Skilled players statistical comparison:Quarterbacks:Jake Caan (LS) 64 of 92 for 802, 8 TD, 2 IntvsMichael Bonds (SF) 51 of 82 for 814 yards, 11 TD, 3 INTRushing:Amon Milliner (LS) 102 carries for 1024 yards, 12 TD’svsJace Harrick (SF) 41 carries for 246 yards, 2 TDs; and Elijah Washington (SF) 27 carries for 198 yards, 5 TDs.Receivers:Harrison MacDonald 21 catches for 386 yards, 6 TDvsDaniel Scott 16 catches for 310 yards, 6 TDPoint Differental Through 5 Games:La Salle: 173 points scored, 72 points allowedSt. Francis: 163 points scored, 75 points allowed Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Make a comment Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it More Cool Stuff HerbeautyWeird Types Of Massage Not Everyone Dares To TryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyRed Meat Is Dangerous And Here Is The ProofHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHere Is What Scientists Say Will Happen When You Eat AvocadosHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyGet Rid Of Unwanted Body Fat By Eating The Right FoodsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeauty First Heatwave Expected Next Week center_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Subscribe Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

For example, in the 2018 shootout at Trader Joe’s in Silver Lake — where store assistant manager Melyda Corado was killed by an LAPD bullet during an exchange of gunfire between police and a man suspected of shooting two other people — LAPD Chief Michel Moore released bodycam video three days later.The value of video footage couldn’t be clearer at a time when protesters nationwide have been enraged into action by the images of George Floyd, a 45-year-old Black man, fighting to breathe while held down by the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer now charged with murder.In Los Angeles County, money has also been an issue, with McDonnell asking for $55 million in funding and 239 new personnel to run the system. The board chose to focus first on installing fixed cameras in county jails to counter use-of-force against inmates.The plan ultimately agreed upon by Villanueva and the board in September 2019 carried a cost of roughly $35 million and called for 33 new employees. At that time, county Chief Executive Officer Sachi Hamai said it would take about 19 months to roll out the devices to more than 5,200 deputies and security officers operating out of 58 patrol stations and sub-stations, 84 county facilities and nine community colleges, with full roll-out expected in the first half of 2022.The contract with the vendor providing the cameras and related services is still being negotiated, according to the OIG.The unions have since ratified a bodycam policy — which the department has not yet publicly released — but the OIG and COC have recommended changes. Citing the sheriff’s failure to respond to two subpoenas issued by the COC, the OIG underlined concerns about how the program would be implemented.“Aggressive resistance to public oversight and review of department conduct suggests policy-based concerns regarding the body-worn camera program are warranted,” the report stated.The LASD policy “largely mirrors” that of the LAPD, according to Huntsman. However, where it diverges, it favors deputies, he said.“There are concerns that the policy grants supervisors and deputies too much discretion in deciding when to turn on or off a body-worn camera and that there is no real accountability for a deputy failing to activate the body- worn camera,” according to the OIG report.Routine audits to identify misconduct are prohibited by the policy. It also allows deputies to review video footage before writing reports, according to the OIG, who added that this raises “grave concerns” by the public defender and alternate public defender about deputies fabricating details about what happened.Despite misgivings, Huntsman strongly recommended moving forward.“Implementing body-worn cameras is an immediate necessity,” the report concludes.Along with Lancaster, the Century, Lakewood, Industry and West Hollywood stations are slated to be the first locations where patrol deputies will be outfitted with cameras.
