The BP (LSE: BP) share price is quite challenging to analyse because it’s in the middle of a transition. The world is rapidly moving away from dirty hydrocarbon energy towards clean renewable energies such as wind, hydrogen and solar.BP sits in the middle of this transition. The company remains one of the world’s largest oil producers, and it also owns one of the world’s most extensive refining operations and oil trading businesses.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…However, the company has committed to invest tens of billions of dollars in renewable energy over the next few years. If the group meets these ambitions it could become one of the world’s largest renewable energy suppliers.Therefore, when analysing the BP share price, investors have to compare what the company could be to what it is today to estimate its potential value.The value of the BP share price This is harder than it looks. According to the company’s projections, the world may already have surpassed peak oil demand. It has projected that oil demand will never hit the level seen in 2019.But this is just one forecast. The company has also projected that in the “business-as-usual” case, where the world doesn’t meaningfully reduce oil consumption in the next few years, demand will return to pre-Covid levels by 2025. I think these projections illustrate just how challenging it is to try and analyse the BP share price.Nevertheless, the company’s latest forecast predicts oil demand will decline by at least 10% by 2030 and 50% by 2040.I think these forecasts are realistic, especially considering the amount of money currently flowing into renewable energy development. Spending on renewable energy could hit $243bn worldwide in 2021, compared to $311bn for oil and gas. As such, it seems clear to me that BP will have to spend to stay ahead of the competition. That’s just what it’s doing. The company has earmarked $50bn of capital spending over the next decade to increase its renewable energy generation. I think this is a sensible strategy. The company is reinvesting money from its oil and gas business into renewable energy projects. This should help it manage the transition. Risks and challenges However, the company is likely to face challenges. The most considerable risk is the fact that BP will end up overpaying for new projects. This could leave it with depressed profit margins and high levels of debt. The organisation may also be caught out by a faster-than-expected decline in oil consumption. Once again, this may leave the business with lower profit margins and less cash to invest.Still, despite these risks, I think the BP share price presents a great way to invest in the renewable energy transition. Unlike other pure-play renewable energy companies, BP’s oil cash flows give the business an advantage as it has more money to invest. This cash generation also allows the group to invest more in projects that may not deliver an immediate payout, like blue hydrogen. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today as a way to invest in the renewable energy revolution.

Malcolm Davis Architecture built an incredible contextual indoor/outdoor living space. This off the grid home sits on a stunning 165-wooded acre property in a valley west of Healdsburg. Previously working with the Baird family for their first home in the Bay Area, Malcolm Davis already understood the family and their design aesthetic.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherThe home, similar to their very own family campground, is outfitted for the family yearning to unplug from their fast-paced lives and connect to the outdoors. The property has two main structures – a car and barn equipment shed and a main structure, which has three primary enclosed multi-function spaces on opposite ends of the central south-facing porch. These spaces can be used for sleeping, practicing yoga and games. The backyard has an 82-foot long solar-heated swimming pool, a concrete outdoor fireplace used for grilling and cooking and a partially screened outdoor shower, which also functions as their primary shower. In addition, the backyard is the families playground which includes a tree house, rope swing, archery area and two large grass areas flank the east and west end of property for outdoor activities.Save this picture!© Joe Fletcher“Camp Baird” is a fully functional, efficient and sustainable compound. The three enclosed rooms can be fully heated by Rais wood stoves while the kitchen it’s in a screened porch with the dining area. It is a big part of the design idea is that the kitchen is not a conventional enclosed room. The galvanized metal roofs reduce heat build up and the metal cladding and hardwood Ipe decks in this Wildland Urban Interface zone minimize fire threat. The landscape, done by Cary Bush of Merge Studio, is filled with drought tolerant native species with a row of trees at the parking area to provide future shade for visiting cars. In addition, a snake fence – a 30″ tall metal wall – keeps the immediate compound free from critters.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherProduct Description: The buildings are clad in CorTen metal on the walls and galvanized metal roofs.

Europe – Central Asia RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan I would like to clarify some misconceptions about your report on the right to be forgotten and online free speech. In a speech on November 8, 2011, EU Justice Commissioner Viviane said that the implementation of the right to be forgotten within European data protection law will not affect the job of journalists to report and store stories of public interest. The right to be forgotten is very specific: the idea is to give more control to users so they can request that their personal information – profiles, photos or contacts – that they put online themselves are permanently deleted if they do not want this information to be used and if there is no legitimate reason to retain such data. Organisation RSF_en News Viviane Reding would never support legislation that would hinder the crucial role of journalists in our society. Mrs. Reding, as a former journalist, is very conscious and respectful of press freedom and free expression. I read your report in “Internet Enemies 2012” on the right to be forgotten and I would to respond in the name Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the European Commission and EU Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship. Could you please post this response on your website? Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says June 7, 2021 Find out more Matthew Newman Europe – Central Asia The right to be forgotten is not an absolute right. The proposed Regulation, which the European Commission adopted on 25 January 2012, provides for very broad exemptions to ensure that freedom of expression can be fully taken into account. This will allow, for instance, news websites to continue to operate on the basis of the same principles. News For example, during the debate on the EU Telecoms Package in 2009, some politicians wanted to include in this legislation provisions that would have authorised a “three-strikes solution” to protect copyright. She opposed this at the time. Despite significant political pressure, she supported – in the name of the European Commission and in close alliance with the European Parliament – the inclusion of an “Internet freedom provision” in the final text of this legislation. This “Internet freedom provision” represents a great victory for the rights and freedoms of European citizens. Under this provision, “three-strikes laws”, which could cut off Internet access without a prior fair and impartial procedure or without effective and timely judicial review, will certainly not become part of European law. to go further March 16, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Viviane Reding responds to Reporters Without Borders’ criticism of “right to be forgotten” News Receive email alerts “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News Regarding the practical implications of the proposals, the right to be forgotten does not mean that someone will be able to have all his personal data deleted following each request. If, for example, the retention of the data is necessary for the performance of a contract or for compliance with a legal obligation, the data might be kept as long as necessary for that purpose. Viviane Reding has always stood for freedom of expression, a freely accessible Internet, and freedom of information via the Internet. She has repeatedly said that blocking the Internet has never been and never will be an option. Viviane Reding has a track record during her entire career as a defender of the freedom of the press and the media, including three terms as a Commissioner, first for media, then telecoms and now as the fundamental rights Commissioner. June 8, 2021 Find out more In its 2012 “Enemies of the Internet” report, Reporters Without Borders voiced reservations about a proposed European Commission directive and regulation on online personal data protection that would enshrine the “right to be forgotten.”Under the proposed reform, people will be able to have their online personal data deleted “if there are no legitimate grounds for retaining it.” All websites, both those hosted inside the European Union and those hosted outside it, would be obliged to comply with requests in the absence of such grounds.This poses a real risk for freedom of information, as individuals would be able to invoke a right of deletion when content no longer suits them, a right that could override the public interest in the information remaining available.Reporters Without Borders is particularly concerned about the leeway that the directive would allow each member state when transposing it to national law, as “a directive shall be binding, as to the result to be achieved, upon each member state to which it is addressed, but shall leave to the national authorities the choice of form and methods” (article 288 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the Europe Union).Yesterday, Reporters Without Borders received a response from the spokesperson of Viviane Reding, the European Commission vice-president responsible for justice, who is the initiator of this directive. The reply follows.————-March 14th, 2012Dear Ms. Morillon, In your comment about the right to be forgotten, you said that a debate is necessary about the proposals. That is exactly what is happening now that the proposals have been officially presented. The European Commission welcomes this debate, which should be based on a solid understanding of the proposals.

NewsPoliticsLimerick signs up to closer links with TexasBy Alan Jacques – January 25, 2019 1177 Austin Mayor Steve Adler signing the Memorandum of Understanding with Limerick Mayor James Collins.NEW links between Limerick and Austin, Texas, are expected to create “a wealth of opportunities” for the region’s business, tourism, education and culture sectors.That’s according to Mayor James Collins who signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mayor of Austin, Steve Adler, at a special ceremony in Texas’ State Capital last week.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It was the culmination of a visit to Austin by a delegation led by Mayor Collins which included representatives from the University of Limerick, Limerick Institute of Technology, Limerick Enterprise Development Partnership, Limerick Chamber, the Shannon Group, Bank of Ireland and the GAA, as well as the Chief Executive and officials from the Economic Development Directorate of Limerick City and County Council.One of the most entrepreneurial cities of the United States, Austin is one of its high-tech powerhouses, which is home to Dell, WP Engine and Trusource who all have bases in Limerick. Austin is also a creative hotbed for industry and the arts.Mayor Collins explained that the MOU will allow partnerships to be formed to allow industry, education and cultural interests on both sides to capitalise and learn from each other.“It is important that Limerick links up with industry leaders to see how we can develop and become world class leaders in our own right. It shows that Limerick has a vision to be the best and by linking up with Austin we are setting our sights at the top. This link between Austin and Limerick will allow entrepreneurs and businesses to work closely for the benefit of both cities and regions.”It is hoped that the signing of the Memorandum will establish long term, collaborative relationships in the areas of business, technology, manufacturing, professional services, education, the creative industries, culture, as well as any other area of interest and benefit to both communities.The formal bilateral trade and investment relationship envisioned by the MoU will result in the creation of new employment opportunities, expansion of foreign direct investment, an increase in the hugely sought after STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Maths) capabilities of workers and the enhancement of collaboration between third level institutions in Limerick and Austin.Adrian Farrell, Irish Consul General in Austin said: “The Consulate of Ireland in Austin has worked closely with both cities to develop this exciting new agreement which will strengthen relations and deliver benefits in trade and enterprise, innovation, education and culture for citizens and businesses in Limerick and Austin.” Twitter TAGSLimerick City and CountNewspolitics RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick on Covid watch list WhatsApp Facebook Vicky calls for right to die with dignity Print Population of Mid West region increased by more than 3,000 in past year Unstoppable Sean shows that all things are possible Email Advertisement Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Previous articleLimerick Council in the frame for €33,000 spend on music memorabiliaNext articleGet to the punchline at University Concert Hall Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat
Previous Article Next Article Oxfam is revamping its pay and benefits structure, as well as enhancingstaff development to improve its retention worldwide. Andrew Thompson, director of international HR, said the charity had decidedto make changes to its rewards structure to combat high staff turnover,particularly outside the UK. Turnover among international management and other specialists is as high as60 per cent, creating significant recruitment and other associated costs. Thompson said that in some areas, such as Africa, no member of staff hasworked for the organisation for longer than two years. One of the measuresbeing taken is a reduction in the use of fixed-term contracts that, in someregions, are used to employ about three-quarters of staff. Thompson said: “On a fixed-term contract, people don’t feel emotionallyattached to the organisation. We needed measures that would create a morestable workforce and a greater sense of belonging.” The organisation, which typically paid 25 per cent less than the marketrate, has increased its basic pay to make it more competitive. Thompson is sure the extra investment will pay dividends. “We are spending far more money on the costs associated with turnoverthan we will eventually spend on [increasing wages],” he said. Oxfam is also beginning to use e-learning to improve the consistentdevelopment of its staff, regardless of where they are based. The charity hasstarted to embed a performance management system as a tool to measure andmotivate employees. “[Oxfam is] an organisation that is focused on getting the best out ofits staff in order to have as big an impact on poverty as possible,”Thompson said.
