And I think the stock is an interesting proposition right now.However, since mid-February, the share price has plunged by more than 50%, which isn’t surprising given the grounding of around 85% of its air fleet. And the directors said on 23 March the entire fleet could end up being stationary. We’ve yet to hear about the halting of operations in Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria. Planes were still in the air a week ago when we last heard from Wizz.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…Strong balance sheetBut any future good news – such as the lifting of airline travel restrictions – will surely see the immediate re-start of operating activities and an upward surge in share prices for airline firms such as Wizz.However, the unknown factor is whether such companies can remain solvent for the duration of the crisis with near-zero revenues. Of course, the UK government’s promise to take care of 80% of the payroll for companies, and other measures, will likely help with costs. And Wizz flew into the crisis with a decent-looking balance sheet. Last November’s half-year report revealed cash and equivalents of around £1.6bn, offset by borrowings close to £2bn.Investment banker Berenberg thinks Wizz will be a survivor in the industry. The firm recently put out a brokers’ note elevating its recommendation on Wizz from ‘hold’ to ‘buy’, saying the near-term survival of the business will benefit from “high starting liquidity, a larger proportion of variable costs (than some of its competitors) and an ability to win supplier concessions.”I wouldn’t pin all my hopes on the opinion of just one broker. Instead, I’d do my own research. But Berenberg makes an interesting point about the difference between fixed and variable costs. As implied, fixed costs usually remain ongoing whether a company is turning over business or not. Whereas variable costs rise and fall along with the levels of business a firm is undertaking.Confident directorsLooking ahead, the Wizz directors reckon the “ultra-low-cost business model” will help the firm survive even a prolonged grounding “substantially beyond” the current estimates for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe.I’m keen on this share and see it as having huge potential to rise as soon as the crisis starts to improve. But it’s also a risky stock right now. Conditions could deteriorate further, and the crisis may extend for longer than we can currently imagine. Therefore, the Wizz share price could move lower than today’s 2,130p.So, I’ve got this one on my watch list for the time being and will be looking out for improving general economic news flow. Of course, I’d be unlikely to catch the bottom of the share price move with such a strategy. But the insurance of a little more clarity about future operations would be worth the ‘cost’ to me.

This is accomplished through an efficient and functional arrangement of space and utilities while encouraging an expressive and creative lifestyle. The main objective with the Clifton Hill House was to create a home that both shelters and enhances the daily living of the clients for now and generations to come. The primary function of providing shelter to a family of four that embraces and respects the environment while protecting and sheltering the clients from the harsh elements has resulted in a building that can honestly call itself “green”.

Designed by Utopia Arkitekter, the residential structures impose the contemporary emphasis on sustainability and function within the traditional all-wood construction of the past, fitting into the existing infrastructure while maintaining a distinct character. Save this picture!Site PlanDeriving its name from the area’s architectural history, Söderkåkar refers to the vernacular red wood shacks of the old Södermalm district. Speaking to this, the development utilizes a similar timber construction method while modernizing the structures through a dynamic “corkscrewed” form. As another nod to the past, Söderkåkar is treated with the traditional Swedish red paint.Consisting of three houses occupying what is currently a parking lot, the project provides 50 apartments ranging in size from three to five rooms, as well as a kindergarten, restaurant, and café at ground level. The buildings vary in height from four to seven stories in response to their immediate context, with the shorter houses facing the old district and mirroring its compact scale. In contrast, the tallest building faces an urban area and emulates its lofty, modern character.Save this picture!ElevationTo maximize benefits to the community, Söderkåkar dissolves the development into three distinct structures. Individualization diversifies the character of the district, while the space between the houses counteracts density and provides areas for private gardens. The spacing also contributes to the maximization of views and natural daylighting via bay windows and balconies for each apartment.In terms of sustainability, the traditional wood construction utilizes a renewable resource, while the roofs are outfitted with solar panels to power the development. A 42-space underground parking garage accommodates residents’ transportation needs while keeping emissions away from the occupied space.Construction is expected to begin within the next few years.ArchitectsUtopia ArkitekterLocationTengdahlsgatan, SödermalmClientFolkhemProject Year2012PhotographsCourtesy of Utopia ArkitekterLocationTengdahlsgatan, SödermalmProject Year2012PhotographsCourtesy of Utopia ArkitekterProject gallerySee allShow lessNJIT Graduates Create A Biodegradable Pavilion For Sukkahville 2014Architecture NewsArchiculture Interviews: Jess ZimbabweArchitecture News Share “COPY” “COPY” CopyAbout this officeUtopia ArkitekterOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsStockholmSödermalmApartmentsWoodHousingResidentialSwedenPublished on April 19, 2015Cite: Holly Giermann. “Utopia Arkitekter Reinterprets Stockholm’s Vernacular Architecture” 19 Apr 2015.

As everyone got comfortable on cozy couches and chairs, the Millers seemed like just another family enjoying their Christmas break.But the Millers aren’t your average Odessa family and 18-year-old Reid Miller isn’t your average Texas teenager. Some days he works up to 12-hour days in Los Angeles to pursue his dreams.Reid started acting at the age of 13, graduated high school at the age of 15, and for the past four years has been traveling back and forth from Odessa to Los Angeles to build a career in Hollywood. And his mother, Megan, has been there to support him along the way—whether it’s to help negotiate contracts or help set up headshots for a portfolio.Later this month Reid will be heading to the 2018 Sundance Film Festival after the short film “WYRM” was selected, in which he plays the leading role.

Reid is home for the holidays and then headed to Sundance festival in January.center_img Megan said out of the 40,000 films that were submitted, only 60 are chosen in three categories, so in Reid’s category only 20 films were selected.“So the fact that they picked it out of that big of a pool is a big deal and it’s really exciting,” Reid added. “And what’s also really exciting is that a lot of big stars are gonna be there so I’m hoping I get to, like, meet some of my heroes like Robert Downy Jr., (or) any of the Avengers.”Reid said he has always wanted to go to the Sundance Film Festival, but they wanted to have a reason to go because it is costly. But this year it was in the back of their minds, he said, because they knew “WYRM” turned out “fantastic.”“It’s gonna be a new and awesome experience,” he said.This year has been Reid’s busiest year since he began, starring as Pete Hickey on Play by Play, a TV series on Verizon’s mobile channel Go90, and having minor roles in other TV Series including The Fosters and Training Day. He has also filmed a pilot for the TV Series Rounds this year; has been a part of the feature film F.R.E.D.I., which will have a soft premiere in May; and has a starring role in short film “A Love Deed.”With more than 20 IMDb credits, Reid said he feels like each year he has progressed and he has a feeling this year will be a really good year.His acting career began after taking part in an Applause Rising Talent Showcase, but the opportunity was really more like a door that was waiting to be opened.“It wasn’t just a thing that was spur of the moment, like ‘I should be an actor. I should be in the movies.’ There’s always been that creative drive to create stuff,” Reid said.His father, Shawn Miller, said from the time Reid was very small he always showed an intense interest and passion for making films and telling stories. From creating small stop-motion films to drawing tons of comics, Reid’s passion just continued to build.“It wasn’t like a passing phase like I wanna be a movie star or that kind of thing,” Shawn said.Now Reid spends more time writing than drawing and more time coaching, training and auditioning then he does making stop-motion films, but his passion remains the same.His biggest goal is to one day be an action star like Tom Cruise, or portray a superhero when he gets older. His biggest motivation and why he really loves acting, he said, is because he loves to play other people.“I love to step into the shoes of someone I would have never been and never have the opportunity to be and it’s like I get to live kind of different lives and get paid to do it. That’s why I especially love the Sci-Fi genre, because it’s like I — to be able to play out those scenarios and live in that world is like, you’re getting paid to play make-believe. You really are and that’s like the best job. I love that so much,” he said.While Reid and his mother have spent more time in L.A. than they have Odessa this year due to a busier schedule, when they are able to come back home they recognize the slower pace.“…It definitely feels like a vacation anytime I visit because I can actually sit down and breathe,” Reid said, as he drew in a deep breath. “L.A. is like hustle-bustle. It’s so fast and it never really slows down and the people never slow down. It’s always: go, go, go.”He also has some interesting conversations with friends when he visits home, which is a good break from the constant networking he does when he’s in California. Reid recalled one of his friends asking him who he met this year and whether he’d met any stars.“It’s just different because someone like a big star could walk down the street in L.A. and no one’s going to notice,” he said.Reid’s friend Dawson Shrum, who he met through a local homeschooling group called IGNITED, said it’s pretty cool to have a friend in the TV and movie industry. For Shrum, it’s a neat experience to watch his best friend on a TV show and hear about the projects he works on.Shrum said Reid is a hard worker, never gives up on anything and although it may seem like Hollywood and Odessa are two completely different worlds, Reid knows he’s just another person and “doesn’t act crazy.”“At the end of the day, I know if I really need him, help be there. Even if he’s crazy busy, he’ll be there for me,” Shrum said. “It’s like we’re brothers almost.”Although at 18 years old, Reid is officially an adult, he and his mother have agreed that she will be there for him as long as he wants her there. Reid said due to the fact he looks more like 15 than 18, people may try to take advantage of him and think he’s naïve.“If I do another season of my show Play by Play, I probably wouldn’t need her with me because I’m so close with everyone on set. Like with all the other actors and the crew and there’s no weird anything, so that would be fine. But doing something new, or if I had to go out of the country, she would come with me and I would want her to because you never know what’s gonna go down,” he said.Those interested in following Reid’s career can like his Facebook page, Reid Miller Actor, or follow him on Instagram @therealreidmiller.
