EMC, the biggest maker of corporate data storage equipment, plans to buy smaller rival Isilon Systems for $2.25bn (£1.4bn) as consolidation in the technology sector gains steam.EMC’s $33.85-a-share cash offer for Isilon, announced by both companies yesterday, represents a 29 per cent premium over Isilon’s closing share price on Friday. Isilon shares were at $33.77 in afternoon Nasdaq trade, just eight cents shy of the offer price.The growing popularity of online video from media companies, and new software from industries like life sciences, particularly related to gene sequencing, are expected to generate exponentially large amounts of data.Data storage companies have been among the hottest targets in the recent round of consolidation as they play a crucial role in “cloud computing” – the use of technology to access remote computing power and data over the Internet.

Up to 35-40% of this loss will be recovered in 2021 when the Tokyo Olympics and the Euro 2020 are expected to be held. In some instances, the growth of D2C SVOD sports-based offerings with an ability to subscribe month-on-month could prove important for the sports ecosystem in key markets.The pandemic is resulting in cancellation and suspension of major sports events worldwide, including the deferment of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games to the next summer.Even if the sports events are rescheduled after normalcy returns, the global economic impact will drive the sponsors and other key constituents in the sports eco system away. Sponsors will find it hard to fulfil their commitments.MPA, in its base analysis, had projected Asia-Pacific Sports Media revenue to drop by $2.0 billion in 2020 versus MPA’s previous estimates pre COVID-19. The research company noted that the sports calendar for 2020 is facing significant disruption after multiple cancellations and postponements.Disruption caused by Coronavirus pandemic across the sports ecosystem is unique and is the first of its kind since the emergence of modern sports media contracts.MPA, in wake of the feared impact analysis of how COVID-19 will affect sports media dynamics in 2020 and 2021, has consequently revised down revenue forecasts.MPA expects a 35% drop in sports-related media revenue generation in Asia-Pacific for the 2020 calendar year, effectively implying a US$2.0 billion loss in revenue. This analysis assumes that most of the international properties in basketball, motorsport, tennis, golf, and rugby will have a truncated season while European football will likely complete its season.Also Read: Sports Business: E-Sports only gainer amidst Coronavirus impact Cricket WTC Final LIVE: Devon Conway continues red-hot form, slams fifty to provide New Zealand dream start RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Cricket BCCI Apex Council Meet: BCCI to bid for 3 major global events in next tournament cycle starting from 2024; Check TAGSAsia Pacific Sports Media 2020Asia-Pacific Sports MediaCoronavirusSports BusinessSports Business NewsSports Business News IndiaSports media revenueTokyo 2020 Olympic Games SHARE

Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is a stock that tends to divide opinion. Some investors see it as a ‘must-own’ growth stock. Meanwhile, other investors see it as too expensive.Personally, I’m bullish on Amazon. I think it’s a great long-term buy-and-hold stock. With that in mind, here are three reasons I’d buy AMZN stock today.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…Online shopping is set to rocketThe first reason I’m bullish on Amazon stock is that the company is the global leader in the online shopping space. And this industry looks set for massive growth in the years ahead.Indeed, according to GroupM, the global retail e-commerce market is set to grow to around $7trn by 2024 and $10trn by 2027, from around $4trn in 2020. This means that, while Amazon’s sales have grown significantly over the last decade, there’s still plenty of room for further growth in the e-commerce space in the years ahead.It’s worth pointing out that Amazon has the potential to increase its market share significantly in many countries. Here in the UK, its e-commerce market share is still under 10%. By contrast, in the US, its market share is around 40%.Cloud computing looks set for huge growthThe second reason I like Amazon stock is that the company is the most dominant player in the cloud computing space. This is another industry with massive growth potential.According to Markets and Markets, the global cloud computing market size is expected to rocket from $371bn in 2020 to $832bn by 2025. That represents growth of an incredible 17.5% per year. Again, there’s plenty of potential for Amazon here too.Amazon is growing rapidly Finally, Amazon’s recent gains has been very impressive. Its latest results (Q4 2020) showed growth of 46% in online store sales, a 57% rise in third-party seller services, growth of 35% in subscription services, and a 28% lift in AWS cloud services. For a company with a market-cap in excess of $1.5trn, that’s an outstanding level of growth, in my view.Amazon stock: risksNow, like any stock, there are also risks to the investment case.I won’t deny Amazon is expensive. Currently, the consensus earnings per share (EPS) forecast for this year is $47.12. That means, at the current share price, Amazon sports a high forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 65.6. That valuation adds risk to the investment case. If growth slows, the stock could fall. It’s also worth noting that Amazon is prone to large pullbacks. Declines of 20% or greater are very normal here. This kind of volatility means the stock isn’t likely to be suitable for risk-averse investors who prioritise capital preservation. I’ve bought Amazon sharesOverall however, I think the long-term growth story here is very attractive. I’ve made Amazon a top 10 holding in my own portfolio and I plan to hold the stock for a long time.

The Ireland centre is unavailable for Connacht’s next four fixtures after his red card against England Ireland’s Bundee Aki (12) leaves the field after being sent off (Inpho) A Six Nations statement read: “The red card issued infringes Law 9.13, related to dangerous play during a tackle. Dangerous tackling includes tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the shoulders. Aki had made contact with his opponent just ‘inches too high’.“The Disciplinary Committee accepted Mr Aki’s explanation of the incident and that he intended to perform a legitimate tackle. The committee accepted that Aki’s actions had been reckless rather than deliberate or intentional.“The Disciplinary Committee determined the offence to warrant a mid-range entry point. This would have been its determination in any event, notwithstanding the head contact involved.” Bundee Aki banned for four matchesBundee Aki has been banned for four matches after being sent off in Ireland’s Six Nations victory against England.The Ireland centre was shown a red card in the 63rd minute following a dangerous tackle on England No 8 Billy Vunipola.Related: Two red cards on Six Nations Super SaturdayAccepting the tackle warranted a red card, Aki admitted to dangerous play in front of an independent disciplinary committee. The committee determined the tackle “reckless” and ruled it a mid-range offence. Under World Rugby regulations, the ban’s starting point is a minimum of six weeks.However, Aki’s “prompt acceptance, attitude and clear remorse” for the challenge earned him a two-week reduction to his suspension. Aki’s previous disciplinary record meant he was unable to earn a 50% reduction in his sanction, which is the maximum available.Consequently, Aki misses Connacht’s Challenge Cup last-16 tie against Leicester on Saturday 3 April, plus the following three games organised by EPCR (European Professional Club Rugby) or Pro Rugby Championship.Aki’s dismissal makes him the first Irish player in history to receive two red cards at Test level as he was also sent off against Samoa at the 2019 World Cup.

House for a Relaxing life. The Pitanga House was designed for a family who decided to move from one of the busiest neighborhoods in the city of Sao Paulo to live in Santa Isabel, a city about 55km from the capital. The plot is in an environmental reserve, which makes the native vegetation appear abundantly. This oriented the most important visuals of the house to the denser part of the forest but that did not harm any visual of the house because on all sides of the 800 sqm plot you can see large trees.Save this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliThe house is divided between three levels. At the upper floor we find the bedrooms and a small office. The kitchen, barbecue, laundry room, living room and a suite are located at the groundfloor sharing space with the trees. The whole ground floor has large glass sheets that close (or open) the living and dining room and thereby control their integration with the leisure area and pool are on the same level.Save this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliAt the lowest level thre is a volume of concrete embedded in the natural profile of the lot, in this part we have an office for the couple who can now work from home, a garden and a garden, a space for the care of the dogs of the house [two English shepherds and a mutt dog] plus a room for the pool machinery. Access to these areas is by a prefabricated concrete helical staircase, which creates a path and kind of displacement, even within the lot, to register that the couple is leaving for work. Even if this ‘going to office’ only means leaving the main volume behind. The concrete structure makes the house look like a stone in the middle of the trees and aims to make a smooth transition between the natural and the built by the human hand.Save this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessRavel Residence / OZSelected ProjectsFlora Apartments / Belatchew ArkitekterSelected Projects Share Brazil Rodrigo Maçonilio, André Di Gregório CopyAbout this officeEstúdio BRAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureIcebergBrazilPublished on March 27, 2021Cite: “Pitanga House / Estúdio BRA” [Casa Pitanga / Estúdio BRA] 27 Mar 2021.

Thankfully the need to support rural communities, help them attract and keep jobs and keep American agriculture as a leader in the world is a bipartisan issue.“Through the Rebuild Rural Coalition, we have had warm receptions from Ranking Member Stabenow’s and Carper’s staff. They understand the unique challenges of rural infrastructure, and that is borne out in today’s proposal.“We look forward to working with Congress and the White House on this vitally important opportunity to improve the quality of life for rural Americans and the communities in which they live.” Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter
