CITY VIEWS: IS THE TUBE STRIKE THE START OF WIDESPREAD INDUSTRIAL ACTION?

first_img KCS-content NEAL TAYLOR | A.F.M.E“All the strikes will be about pay, no doubt, and they will never feel like they are paid enough. We’ve got to take it all with a pinch of salt, as the unions are going to do whatever they want. Luckily I’ve not been affected this time around ?– yet.”SAM DAVIDSON | BELL & CLEMENTS“I get the train straight to Fenchurch Street so won’t be caught up in this strike, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more. There seems to be an awful lots of strikes happening now, and they have lost quite a lot of their impact.”SCOTT HARRIS | DALLAS KIRKLAND“It’s a real pain for commuters, and it probably won’t get the striking workers what they want. The threat of strikes is frustrating if you’re trying to book a holiday abroad. The action is going to lower share prices, which is surely not going to help the workers.

Brussels calls for criminal punishments

first_img KCS-content Tags: NULL BRUSSELS may demand that countries impose criminal penalties for breaking some financial rules, in a bid to toughen up regulation across the European Union.In a second consultation paper yesterday about financial penalties, EU officials said there was too much variation in sanctions between countries.One proposal is for Brussels to set minimum penalties across the board – including the requirement of criminal sanctions for the most serious crimes. The consultation is open until 19 February.At the moment, banking sector penalties range from less than €150,000 (£126,000) in several countries, to unlimited fines in others. In the securities sector, only 18 countries have fines for insider trading. The maximum levels range from more than €1m to less than €200,000.

Inflation expectations at two year high

first_img whatsapp Inflation expectations at two year high Thursday 16 December 2010 6:56 am Britons expect a higher rate of inflation over the coming year than at any time since August 2008, suggesting concern about a looming sales tax rise and rising food prices, a Bank of England survey showed on Thursday.The Bank’s November inflation attitudes survey showed that the public expect inflation of 3.9 per cent over the next 12 months, up from an expected 3.4 per cent in August and the highest rate since August 2008.Inflation has been at least a percentage point above the Bank’s two per cent target since the start of the year, due in part to a rise in value-added tax in January as well as high commodity prices. Last month consumer price inflation unexpectedly rose to a six-month high of 3.3 per cent due to record increases in food and clothing prices.A further rise in VAT is due next month, and the Bank itself expects inflation of well over three per cent next year before it falls back to target early in 2012.Respondents in the Bank’s survey said they expected inflation in two years time be 3.2 per cent and in five years time to be at 3.3 per cent – the highest forecasts for these measures since the Bank first asked about them in February 2009.The Bank had not previously made the answers to these questions public.Bank Deputy Governor Charles Bean said earlier this week that the central bank was keeping a very close eye on inflation expectations in case they triggered a spiral of pre-emptive price rises and wage demands that could stop inflation falling.The survey was carried out by polling company GfK NOP in November and interviewed 2,057 people.

The announcement came as the broker posted a moderate increase in earnings yesterday, with pre-tax profits edging up three per cent to £19m.The improvement was more marked in measures that exclude one-off costs like the firm’s purchase of an office in Frankfurt, with operating profit rising 16.9 per cent to £25.6m.The rise was driven particularly by the firm’s securities business, where profits rose 50 per cent – in contrast to similar business lines at larger banks, which suffered from low trading volumes last year.Chief executive Mark Brown told City A.M. that the broker was “actively seeking more acquisitions” after its successful integration of two wealth management businesses last year. But Brown added: “It’s about being patient. We are very wary about acquiring outside wealth management.” Wealth management offers a stable, even revenue source, he said. whatsapp Share KCS-content Tags: NULL Collins Stewart brand to add Hawkpoint last_img read more

Plantar verduras vincula los recursos y la necesidad

first_img In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Albany, NY Rector Hopkinsville, KY Nota de la redacción: Este es el artículo más reciente de una serie continua sobre congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal que participan en la agricultura comunitaria. Otros artículos de la serie se pueden encontrar aquí.El huerto de Santiago Apóstol se expandirá en la medida en que se convierta en el centro de “Gracia Creciente: sostener a una comunidad a través de la creación de Dios”, un proyecto apoyado en parte por una subvención reciente de la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Kent, Washington] Una subvención de la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias le ha proporcionado fertilizante económico a un plan de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol  [St. James Episcopal Church] para expandir su ministerio agrícola comunitario.La subvención de $12.500 fue una de las 36 subvenciones otorgadas por la UTO a principios de este año por un monto total de más de $1 millón, todas ellas destinadas a ayudar a ministerios que apoyan la última de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión de la Comunión Anglicana: Luchar por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y sostener y renovar la vida en la tierra.La subvención ayudará a [la congregación] de Santiago Apóstol a crear un programa comunitario para conectar a familias y niños en peligro con lo que su solicitud llama “el enriquecimiento espiritual, nutricional y creativo de aprender a atender un huerto y a utilizar abono orgánico [compostación] en sus hogares” y en su comunidad. El programa “Gracia Creciente: sostener a una comunidad a través de la creación de Dios”, conectará a la parroquia y a [la iniciativa]  Fe y Alimento del programa Tierra Cultivable de Seattle con familias necesitadas en el barrio East Hill de Kent, entre ellas estudiantes y sus familias en la escuela primaria de Kent Hill, designada como de Título I, que se encuentra en la proximidad de la iglesia.El Rdo. Elias Mburu sostiene un cesto de hortalizas durante una misa a fines de julio en el césped de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol en Kent, Washington. El huerto de Santiago Apóstol recibió recientemente una subvención de la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias para expandir su ministerio comunitario basado en el huerto. Foto de Brian Sellers-Petersen vía Facebook.El centro de asistencia de Santiago Apóstol atendió el año pasado a 1.722 visitantes con alimentos, ropa y minisubvenciones. Más de la mitad de esos visitantes (935) eran mujeres; 652 niños y adolescentes, y 1.320 vivían por debajo del nivel de la pobreza, según la solicitud de la subvención de la UTO que hizo la parroquia.Kent, que en un tiempo fue una zona agrícola, es en la actualidad parte del Seattle suburbano. Santiago Apóstol se asienta sobre unas dos hectáreas de terreno próximo a una zona de bajos ingresos en el barrio de East Hill, lo cual la sitúa, según su solicitud, “en el nexo tanto de los recursos naturales como de la necesidad social”, con espacio para extender su ministerio.El director del centro, Dallas Shannon, “ha sido muy fiel en el ministerio (del huerto) y lo ha estado desarrollando poco a poco, y ha logrado que cada vez más personas inviertan en él”, dijo recientemente la Rda. Joyce Parry-Moore, que se convirtió en rectora de Santiago Apóstol en diciembre.“Con ayuda de Dios y con ayuda de la UTO, vamos a convertir el huerto en una parte realmente próspera de la comunidad”, dijo Parry-Moore refiriéndose al huerto que ahora está plantado en una franja de terreno que corre a lo largo de la entrada de autos de la iglesia. “Vamos a convertirlo más en un huerto docente, además de que sea un huerto para compartir”.El proyecto Gracia Creciente creará conciencia tanto en el barrio como en la parroquia de la importancia de la vida sostenible y de la mayordomía del medioambiente, decía la solicitud de Santiago Apóstol.Los participantes aprenderán horticultura, compostación, destrezas para una vida sostenible y opciones nutricionales saludables. El huerto expandido proporcionará productos frescos y cualquier excedente se venderá en un puesto de hortalizas que se construirá con dinero de la subvención. Las ganancias de las ventas ayudará a sostener el proyecto. La subvención también costeará la construcción de un puesto de hortalizas y productos agrícolas , así como el equipo de la compostación, una pasantía de horticultura y un educador en servicios comunitario y arte, según el resumen de la subvención de la UTO.El Rvdmo. Greg Rickel, obispo de la Diócesis de Olympia, dijo en la solicitud de la subvención de la UTO de la parroquia en marzo que Gracia Creciente utiliza los recursos de Santiago Apóstol de una manera innovadora que “acerca a la tierra y a las personas de una manera que es duradera… y no un mero arreglo provisional”.Parry-Moore dijo que ella prevé más espacio para el huerto en lo que riéndose llamó “the back 40” detrás del edificio de la iglesia. “Uno puede producir muchísimo alimento con un cuarto de hectárea”, afirmó.Ella también cree que en estos tiempos “las iglesias ocupan realmente un espacio único en la comunidad” al tiempo que el gobierno en todos los niveles reduce los servicios sociales. Las iglesias son espacios seguros donde las personas pueden reunirse y ser alimentadas espiritual y físicamente, afirmó ella.“Las personas que acuden a nosotros viven en la pobreza, personas que experimentan desamparo, personas que experimentan crisis mentales”, dijo Parry-Moore. “Tenemos la oportunidad de alimentarles y de tender puentes para el aprendizaje”.Aprender a plantar algo para su propia alimentación puede reafirmarlos y “luego ellos pueden dar el próximo paso y el siguiente”.– La Rda.

The house is built on exceptional terrain – very long and narrow plot of 940 sq. m. The proportions were one of the generators for the design.

A house that will not be too flashy for its surroundings. And if possible, a plan that would deal with their inherent mess. “We need you to help us to be more organized.”Save this picture!© Amit GosherThe solution is to plan the house one level, which creates intimacy despite the size. The house is organized around a central courtyard embraced by the public space and the children’s rooms.Save this picture!© Amit GosherThe house is based on the longitudinal axis as private area and an open square space 120 sq.m as public area. a dramatic long corridor is lighted by a “light-fall” – a sky light window devised to also let hot air out.Save this picture!© Amit GosherWe dealt with the subject of an organization and order using a huge piece of furniture designed as multi – functional storage, located in the central open space, accessed from four sided.

Originally, even though it lacked tree vegetation (particularly pines, which are typical in The Coast District), the land seemed impenetrable, completely covered as it was with acacias.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenFollowing the topography of the area, characterized by the natural sandy dunes, the terrain is plain towards the street and slopes downward steeply until it turns plain again near the back.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe client commissioned a typical summer house for him and his family, but he also requested that the house should accommodate standard uses to allow it to be rented out. The most prominent space in the house should be the social area. Connected with the unified dining and living rooms, the kitchen should be spacious and communicate into a semi covered space housing a grill and belonging to an outdoor area that allows the living room and dining area to expand into the exterior. Regarding the private areas, three bedrooms were commissioned: one en suite master bedroom and two secondary bedrooms separated from the former, sharing a bathroom. It was decided that the house would be materialized in exposed concrete, due to its zero maintenance needs.Save this picture!SectionThe Studio’s proposal was to organize the program into one architectural object that would integrate harmoniously into the site’s topography with as little environmental impact as possible. The house would merge into its surroundings by following the terrain’s natural forms and through the partial burying of its volume under the slope.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenAs houses in the area can be relatively close to one another due to the parcels’ organization, it was decided that the setback should be expanded beyond the minimum required by the building code so that more air and privacy could be gained. This wider setback, the mostly blind side walls, and the facades’ permeability both at the front and the back made it possible to achieve a space configuration that is private enough and that provides shelter from the outside views, which would undermine the house’s intimacy.Save this picture!AxonometricSet at the highest level of the site, the access floor houses the social areas. With uninterrupted views from the front backwards, it opens into a deck over the slope that overlooks the green lung at the back of the site and, at the same time, shelters the private uses floor that lies beneath.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenTwo staircases (one inside, linking the social and private areas, and one outside, linking the deck and the woods beneath) set on the same line define an axis for vertical circulations around which all spaces are organized. While on the upper floor it emancipates the living room from the kitchen-dining area-grill chained spaces, downstairs it separates the master and secondary bedrooms according to what the client asked for.Save this picture!Site PlanThe longitudinal, open views from the rear of the upper level display the surrounding acacias in the foreground and the distant pines in the valley behind. Located at the lowest part of the site, the bedrooms open directly into the green lung through semi covered private expansions, establishing a continuum with the natural surroundings.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe outer stairs slide between two big concrete boxes, one containing a swimming pool and the other, a garden, and both of them linked to the deck into which the social areas open. The water, the earth, and the vegetation contained in these boxes help insulate the bedrooms beneath. Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenIn addition to the insolation control provided by the upper floor’s expansion, the semi covered area of the deck, and the overhangings that reduce the sunrays’ incidence on the glazed surfaces, the house was also equipped with Split air cooling systems and heating through a wood-burning stove and radiant floors.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe esthetic proposal shows at once both the complementarity and the contrast between the exposed concrete’s noble expression all over the house, and the refined details of the anodized aluminum framing, the glass, and the smoothed concrete floors. Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Real Deal Behind the Dangling “Asteroid Skyscraper” ProposalArticlesStoves, Sinks, and Refrigerators: Downloadable CAD Blocks for Kitchen DesignsMisc Share CopyAbout this officeLuciano KrukOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa Costa PartidoArgentinaPublished on March 30, 2017Cite: “House in the Dune / Luciano Kruk” [Casa en La Duna / Luciano Kruk] 30 Mar 2017.
