Access this special “Green Industrial Revolution” presentation now The Tirupati Graphite (LSE:TPG) share price leapt last week after reports the firm had developed a revolutionary graphene-based substance. If expectations are realised, then the near doubling of the Tirupati Graphite stock price (from 90p to 152p) might be justified and then some. However, it is still very early days, so a sober look at the potential of this development is warranted. But I also want to investigate what else Tirupati Graphite offers should its new development not see the commercial light of day.Graphite and GrapheneTirupati Graphite is a young company. It was incorporated in 2017 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in December 2020. It mines flake graphite at two sites in Madagascar. High purity and specialised flake graphite processing facilities are being developed in India. There is also the Tirupati Graphene and Mintech Research Centre (TGMRC), again located in India, 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…Tirupati Graphite shipped 1,206 tons of flake graphite from Madagascar for £793,577 of revenue in 2020. With a cost of sales of £411,899, graphite mining returned a gross profit of £381,678 and a gross margin of 48% in 2020. Revenues have grown at an annual rate of 432% since 2018. Administrative expenses have grown at 46%. Assuming margins remain steady and sales continue to ramp up faster than administrative expenses, Tirupati should start turning an operating profit in the medium term.The graphite and related products market is expected to grow significantly through this decade, both in volume and price. Tirupati Graphite plans to ramp up to 81,000 and 24,000 tpa of graphite flake and processed graphite, respectively, in the medium term. This sounds achievable, but getting there will require money. Tirupati raised £10m of equity in April 2021 and has tapped the debt markets. But, it’s burning through something like £1m to £3m of cash every year. So, unless it can generate some operational cash flows, further equity and debt raises will be required to fulfil its medium-term plans.Tirupati Graphite share price risesThe Tirupati Graphite share price surge of last week followed a report in The Telegraph that TGMRC has developed a novel aluminium-graphene (Al-Gr) composite. Graphene has been called a wonder material. However, very few applications have followed its 2004 discovery. But its use in wiring has been explored, and this is what this Al-Gr composite is attracting attention for. So far, only about 200 grams of the stuff has been produced, but it’s said to be almost as conductive as copper, yet at least 3.2 times as dense and mechanically stronger.Replacing copper wiring in aircraft and cars with Al-Gr would deliver substantial savings in weight. Better fuel efficiency could be one perk and loading more cargo on board would be another. Rolls-Royce, the FTSE 100 aerospace giant, is apparently already engaged in preliminary discussions. It’s talking about the material’s potential in wiring and other structural operations.Tirupati Graphite’s Al-Gr composite could well be groundbreaking. But at the moment, so little is known. Can commercial volumes of Al-Gr be produced? Can it be formed into wires? How much will this cost? The Tirupati Graphite stock price was 145p at Tuesday’s close, up from 50.5p in December. But too many questions remain unanswered, and I need more clarity. The share price is too high for me, so I won’t be buying the company in my Stocks and Shares ISA right now.

first_img Text description provided by the architects. Using untreated larch wood and black fibre cement panels to optimise solar energy gain, this lake house in Poland is a pretty good example of how to be sustainable and respectful with the environment. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesThis sustainable house – like a chameleon – blends with its surrounding area on Laka Lake in south of Poland. Colourful planks within the timber façade reflect the tones of the rural landscape. The window reveals with fibre cement cladding, frame images of the countryside. Analogical to the most creatures, the building is outside symmetrical, although the internal zones are arranged asymmetrically according to function. Save this picture!The built form is designed to optimise the absorbance of solar energy. Approximately 80% of the building envelope is facing south direction. The single storey living space on the ground floor is externally clad with untreated larch boarding. Solar energy is gained there by the set-in glazed patio. Solar collection panels are located on the roof and a photovoltaic system is planed for the future. The dark facade of the “black box” – a three storey structure clad with charcoal coloured fibre cement panels – is warmed by the sun, reducing heat loss to the environment. The passive and active solar energy concepts and a high standard of thermal insulation are enhanced by a ventilation plant with thermal recovery system. The house consumes only about 1/10 of the average energy use of the existing single-family houses in Poland. Save this picture!The design of the project was determinated by the twin goals of low lifecycle costs and a reduction in construction costs. All details are simple, but well thought out. The house did not cost more than a conventional one in Poland. Cost-savings were made by the application of traditional building techniques and the use of local materials and recycled building elements.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessAD Interviews: Mark Foster Gage / Gage ClemenaceauArticlesGuest House / AATA Associate ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Save this picture!+ 29 Share Poland 2007 “COPY” Area:  175 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CO2 Saver House / Peter Kuczia ArchDaily CopyAbout this officePeter KucziaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodPszczyna CountySustainabilityHouses3D ModelingPolandPublished on May 12, 2008Cite: “CO2 Saver House / Peter Kuczia” 12 May 2008.

first_imgAlex Xavier, Director of Professional Development at the IoF, said:“We want to encourage the broadest range of people, from across the UK, to think of fundraising as a career choice. The public are absolutely right in that fundraising is a profession where people can make a difference to society, but we need to think more about how we can demonstrate and showcase the career and skills development opportunities that fundraising can offer.“There is a real opportunity with our planned journey to Chartered status in making fundraising a more attractive career prospect and we hope to work with schools, universities, and career development services to promote fundraising as a career.”YouGov polled 2,623 adults for the survey. The second instalment will explore how people view a career in fundraising and will be made available on Monday 23 September 2019. The research was commissioned by the IoF and supported by TPP Recruitment and HR Directors Network.

What does the public think of fundraising? is the first of two instalments of a public poll, conducted by YouGov, and looks at how the fundraising profession is seen and understood by the public, particularly at whether age, race, religion, disability, or gender make a difference to how fundraising is perceived.78% of those polled thought raising funds for charity is an important thing, rising to 83% of 16-24 year olds but slightly lower among Muslim and Asian people at 74% and 72% respectively.Women and disabled people were also more likely to strongly agree with this, at 36% of women compared to 24% of men, and 36% of disabled respondents, versus 28% of non-disabled respondents.When asked whether they viewed the fundraising profession positively however, white respondents were more likely to respond negatively at 20% versus 12% of black and Asian respondents. Overall, 41% felt very or quite positive about it.In terms of fundraising itself, around two thirds of people agreed that it is vital for charities to do their work, encourages positive social change, and is rewarding. However, women were far more likely than men to feel this way.last_img read more

first_imgPhiladelphiaOver 30 people participated in a March 10 discussion hosted by Workers World Party connecting the struggle for gender liberation with the struggle against U.S. empire.  Featured speakers included Megan Malachi of Philly REAL Justice, Palestinian novelist and activist Susan Abulhawa, and Black transgender organizer Liora Libertad. Megan Murray with Workers World facilitated. The event was the third in a monthly series of classes called Anti-Imperialism 101, based on writings by political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal and others. March 10 participants. WW PHOTO: Joe PietteMalachi raised the need to understand that sexual violence is a form of political violence.  She stated that the system has always directed special cruelties and oppression at Black women because of the critical role they have played in our communities dating back centuries.Malachi noted that Rosa Parks began her activism as an anti-rape investigator and that Joanne Robinson and the women who organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott (December 1955 to December 1956) focused on the transit system specifically because of the violence committed against them on buses. “Exploiting Black women is acting in the service of empire,” Malachi said, “regardless of who is committing the acts.” She went on to say that sexual violence is rooted in white supremacy and that gender oppression is not a “secondary issue.”Susan Abulhawa, speaking as a Palestinian woman, began by saying, “One of the primary forms of gender violence is denial of someone’s existence, then trivializing their existence.” She drew on the example of Leila Khaled, a revolutionary and militant Palestinian who led a campaign of hijackings and other direct actions against Israeli occupation in the 1970s.  “Only through revolutionary violence was the world forced to recognize our existence.”In a very similar message Liora Libertad raised the struggle for LGBTQ2S+ liberation.  “My pronouns are they and that is nonnegotiable,” Liora began. “My name means that I have light and freedom.” All the gains won by the movement, they explained, began with the Black and Brown transwomen-led, anti-police uprising at Stonewall.In a wide-ranging talk, the three speakers also discussed the purposeful erasure of trans people by the institution of the nuclear family, a structure that is necessary for capitalist production. Trans people subvert this structure by demanding their existence be recognized.MOVE Minister of Confrontation Pam Africa and Indigenous organizer and community leader Carmen Guerrero participated in the Q&A period that followed. Abulhawa, who took part in the discussion via Zoom video, also raised a dire warning about the spread of the COVID19 virus and implored workers to take the necessary precautions.  She stated, “The bourgeois state is once again demonstrating its unwillingness and inability to protect the lives of workers, particularly those who face unique oppressions because of their gender and race.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgMicroStockHub/iStock(HOUSTON) — The Houston man at the center of an investigation into the death of 4-year-old Maleah Davis doubled down on his denial in a tearful jailhouse interview.“I would never do anything to hurt her. That’s not me. Ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you I’m not that type of dude and I was good with the kids,” Derion Vence said Tuesday. “I ain’t no killer, bro.” Vence, 27, offered the comments in an exclusive interview with ABC’s Texas station KTRK-TV, saying that he loved the young girl like his own daughter and would never hurt her.Vence, who was caring for the toddler while her mom was away, is charged with tampering with evidence in connection with the case. Officers said he has not been cooperative throughout the investigation.Maleah was last seen on April 30 when surveillance footage captured her going into her Houston home with Vence, her mother’s ex-fiance. Additional surveillance footage from a neighbor showed Vence leaving the couple’s apartment on May 3 with his son and a laundry basket.Her body was discovered four weeks later in Hope, Arkansas, on the side of a road and wrapped in a black plastic bag. Police said Vence directed them to the location, although he denied any wrongdoing.“I should be home with my family. With Maleah, the kids and Brittany, cooking dinner and watching Netflix,” Vence said, referring to the slain toddler’s mother, Brittany Bowens. “Nothing bad happened to Maleah.”Investigators have not revealed how the young girl died. Vence initially told officers that she was abducted by three men, including one who knocked him out during a carjacking, but Houston Police Department Chief Art Acevedo said he never believed the story. Police located the family’s car on the side of a road in Missouri City, Texas, and investigators said cadaver-sniffing dogs detected the scent of human remains in the vehicle.“You could drive a big rig right through the tales this guy has been telling,” Acevedo said, referring to Vence.Bowens, the child’s mother, said she’s still trying to wrap her head around the painful reality of the situation. She was out of town attending her father’s funeral when the young girl went missing.“I think at that moment that’s when reality hit, that it was her, in that bag, sitting along that street,” Bowens told KTRK. “It’s not fair. It’s not fair at all. I just, I just don’t understand this. It’s not fair, because she didn’t deserve that.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
