When it comes to opening up about her struggles and personal journey, there are no taboo subjects for Willow Smith, one half of innovative rock duo The Anxiety alongside bandmate and collaborator Tyler Cole. In March this year, the 19-year-old spent 24 hours inside a glass box as part of a silent performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles—shaving her head in the process—to raise further awareness about anxiety. And her determination to use her platform to speak up about life’s most urgent issues doesn’t stop there.

This year alone saw Smith join forces with environmental justice platform EcoResolution, push for active change during the Black Lives Matter movement, and co-create an album about mental health during quarantine, all while continuing to spark creativity as part of fashion collective MSFTSrep alongside her brother, Jaden, with its psychedelic designs. You will also have probably spotted her with actors Rami Malek and Maisie Williams, as well as musicians Troye Sivan and Jackson Wang as the faces of Cartier’s relaunched Pasha watch.

Here, in a personal essay for Vogue, Smith discusses how she’s managed to adopt a new self-care routine in the middle of a turbulent year, and dives into the contradictory relationship with social media we need to collectively unpack.

“When you’re forced to be with your thoughts, be by yourself, it can be scary and uncomfortable. I feel that every day. But I also feel the need to ask myself, ‘Why am I so uncomfortable?’ ‘Where are these thoughts coming from?’ ‘Why can’t I just sit by myself and feel at peace and at home?’ It’s been about digging into those questions in a way that we wouldn’t get to do, if it weren’t for the time we’ve had to reflect this year. If we’re given

U.K. building materials supplier SIG (OTC:SIIGY) has had a rough year, with a management change and equity raise to shore up its finances. In SIG Plc: Low Price But High Risk I assessed that the turnaround challenges it faces are significant and it is not investable with confidence until there is clear evidence of a sustained turnaround. That investment thesis remains intact, with the newly released half year results not yet providing strong evidence of a sustained turnaround. Continue to avoid.

The Company Swung to a Loss and Scrapped the Interim Dividend

The first half was heavily impacted by the lockdown and building restrictions, which subdued demand across the building supplies trade as most workmen downed tools for several months. So it was no surprise that there was a sharp fall in revenue versus the comparative six-month period the year before.

Given the costs incurred over lockdown and dealing with the impacts of COVID-19, it is also no surprise that the company fell to a loss. It is worth noting that the loss was sizeable. At 9.1p per share at the basic level, and shares trading at 24.1p, the loss in this six month period was equivalent to over a third of market cap.

Given those results, and the need for cash as shown by the capital raise, it is no surprise that the interim dividend was axed. That followed in the footsteps of the final dividend, which was axed earlier in the year.

Realistically, it is hard to see the dividend being restored any time soon. The company continues to experience turbulence in its markets and is seeking to rebuild its financial base. So dividends will likely be a low priority in the coming year, if not longer. Indeed, the company itself signaled in
