No one, not even France, can hide any more.”Rolet’s comments were supported by bond investors, who said that markets could lose confidence in the euro entirely if it becomes clear that France cannot abide by Eurozone fiscal rules.Matrix Group’s Bill Blain said: “To get into the euro, France put all its borrowing state agencies off-balance sheet. When the crisis reopens, it’s certainly possible that it will become a focus.”The warning comes as the IMF puts pressure on the Eurozone to increase the size of its €440bn bailout facility. A report by Dominique Strauss-Kahn, head of the IMF, says that there is a “strong case for increasing the resources available for this safety net”.However, any increase is likely to face strong opposition from Germany, where taxpayers are already incensed at paying for the Greek and Irish bailouts. The Irish parliament will vote tomorrow on the emergency budget that it must pass in order to qualify for the emergency funding. center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald France is next in euro crisis whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more


first_img GAINS on disposals have cushioned GlaxoSmithKline’s first-quarter profit from a sharp fall in sales of flu products, following last year’s pandemic-linked windfall.The UK’s biggest drugmaker admitted the first three months of 2011 were tough but highlighted an improving picture in underlying growth as its diversified portfolio adjusts to pressure on prices and competition from generics.Quarterly sales fell 10 per cent to £6.59bn while earnings per share before major restructuring rose nine per cent to 32.2p.Analysts expected sales of £6.66bn and earnings per share of 30.4p, according to consensus forecasts.Exceptional demand for vaccines and anti-flu drug Relenza flattered results a year ago and their absence this year – plus sharply lower revenue from diabetes pill Avandia and herpes drug Valtrex – lopped around £1bn off quarterly sales.But chief executive Andrew Witty said yesterday the negative drag from these products was set to decline. “We expect underlying sales growth to translate into sustainable reported growth as we exit the year and move into 2012,” he said.Quarterly profit was shielded by chunky disposal gains on the group’s stake in Quest Diagnostics and the sale of North American rights to coldsore treatment Zovirax, which together added 7.1p to earnings per share. whatsapp Glaxo grows profit despite drop in sales KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Share Wednesday 27 April 2011 8:00 pm Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsapplast_img read more

The past performance of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 shows that they have experienced significant volatility and periods of decline. As such, defensive assets such as gold have proved to be popular among risk averse investors.However, the stock market has delivered high single-digit annual total returns over recent decades. That’s in spite of its periods of decline.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…Therefore, a long-term investment horizon that seeks to purchase a diverse range of cheap, high-quality businesses could be relatively profitable compared to holding other mainstream assets.Diversifying in a stock market rallyRisk reduction may not be the foremost thought when deciding how to capitalise on a stock market rally. However, it could be the most important aspect of investing. After all, it is all too easy to lose money from poor performances from a small number of holdings that can negatively impact on a portfolio’s prospects.As such, buying a wide range of stocks that operate in different industries and geographies could be a sound move. It may mean lower company-specific risk. This is the threat of one holding dragging down the performance of an entire portfolio. It may also lead to a broader range of growth opportunities being present within a portfolio that enhances its returns in a rising stock market.Buying high-quality businessesPurchasing high-quality businesses may also be a logical move in a stock market rally. Clearly, deciding what are attractive companies is open to debate. However, companies with sound financial positions and wide economic moats could be a good starting point. They may be able to deliver relatively strong profit growth that enables them to command higher valuations than their peers.Furthermore, financially-sound companies may be better placed to survive a period of volatile economic and stock market performance. As the last year’s events regarding coronavirus have shown, the future performance of the world economy is very unpredictable. This makes holding higher-quality companies even more important.Purchasing cheap sharesBuying expensive shares in a stock market rally may mean limited scope for capital gains. Of course, even highly-valued companies can become even more expensive. However, the past performance of the stock market suggests that many companies (but not all) revert to their average valuations over the long run. This means that buying stocks with low valuations may provide greater scope for capital appreciation versus purchasing highly-rated businesses.Of course, this strategy is not guaranteed to succeed. Growth stocks, for example, can rise to exceptionally high ratings that are difficult to justify based on previous averages or profitability. However, through buying an asset for less than its intrinsic value, it is possible to obtain relatively high returns in a long-term stock market rally.

first_img Promising utility back Tom Catterick is the latest young gun to put pen to paper on a new contract with the Newcastle Falcons.The 20-year-old Darlington born player has progressed through the clubs’ successful academy system, and follows youngsters Mark Wilson, Will Welch and James Fitzpatrick in committing his future to the club.“There are not many grounds I would like to play on more than Kingston Park,” said Catterick.“You grow up watching the club and you idolise the stars but they’re just normal guys when you meet them. It just means so much to walk out onto Kingston Park in front of your own fans,” he said.Catterick, who attended Barnard Castle School, has been impressive for the Development Team this term. Academy manager Richard Arnold and his assistant Mark Laycock have been instrumental in developing Catterick’s all round game, as he looks to cement a regular first team berth.Laycock, who mentored Catterick through the academy ranks, told media manager Stewart McCullough: “Since joining the academy as a 14-year-old, Tom has always shown promise as an outstanding young player. He has grown in maturity over the past two years and we are delighted that he has decided to continue his development at the club.”An avid Falcons follower as a child, Catterick admits it was a no brainer to sign on the dotted line adding: “It was an easy decision for me to make as we’ve got a great set-up here. As a player coming through, I get the chance to work with some of the first team guys every day. Height: 1.78m (5’ 10”)Position: Fly-half/Full back “People like Jimmy Gopperth and Jeremy Manning help the youngster’s progress. Hopefully I can put a marker down between now and the end of the season.”Catterick made his debut for the Falcons in the 2009/10 season in the Amlin Challenge Cup win over Albi.DOB: 18/10/1990Birthplace: Darlington TAGS: Newcastle Falcons LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more


first_imgSunday Mar 22, 2009 Ireland beat Wales to win the Grand Slam in Cardiff Ireland have arrived home in Dublin to a heroes welcome after they successfully claimed their first Grand Slam since 1948, beating Wales 17-15 in a thriller at the Millennium Stadium.Ireland completed the unbeaten five match run with the win in Cardiff, after tries scored by Brian ODriscoll and Tommy Bowe, and seven valuable points kicked by Ronan OGara, including a drop goal in the dying moments of the match.While Wales needed 13 points and a win to take the Six Nations Championship themselves, in the end they simply lacked the firepower, but did have the chance to take the Grand Slam away from Ireland, through a last ditch penalty kick from Stephen Jones.Jones kick sailed straight and true, but landed just under the cross bars, meaning Ireland won the Grand Slam for the first time in 61 years.“We’ve been close before but it’s an absolute delight that finally we achieved our goal we set out to do,” said iconic captain O’Driscoll.“The guts of this team have been together for a number of years and we wanted a big one, we wanted a slam.”“You need the occasional kick to drop short, you need the bounce of ball now and then, and the odd referee’s decision. It all helps,” he said.“I felt that on overall performance we deserved it, but you need that bit of lady luck and thankfully 10 years of luck came today.”So 15 000 fans welcomed them home on Sunday, lining the streets of Dublin, desperate to catch a glimpse of the heroes who did their country proud.It was an excellent Championship, and in the end, Ireland come out tops, and well deserved too.

Pyrite House is a private residential project, mixing innovative design with structural flexibility to create an inspired living space. The brief was to create a space where 3 families could stay together, enjoying the best of communal living while having their own private spaces. We looked into metaphors of inter-connectedness, and started developing 3 separate volumes enclosing a central, sheltered courtyard that would serve as the heart of the house.Save this picture!Section 02Save this picture!© Darren SohThat’s when we came across pyrite crystals, characterised by their intersecting facades. We adopted intersecting / inter-connecting volumes as our formal language in creating the house. 3 solid prisms are wedged into a central glass block. These 3 prisms are slanted and staggered, with the gaps between the prisms forming corridors and atrium spaces. The living, dining and kitchen areas can be closed off to form individual, air-conditioned spaces. Once connected, these spaces link with the atrium to form an expansive, communal space.Save this picture!© Darren SohPlaying with the prismatic forms, the tips of the prisms are folded in to create more depth and cast shadows providing shade. We were also interested in how the slits between the prisms allow light to penetrate through, creating interesting shapes and patterns in the shadows. The corner windows are also specifically positioned in order to catch wind drafts from the south and provide panoramic views. Voids created at the party wall allow for cross ventilation once all the windows are opened. Blurring of interior and exterior spaces also inform the design of this project. With light flooding the central atrium area, the sheltered spaces in between prisms can be experienced as a pseudo-outdoor space.Save this picture!© Darren SohSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessLuoqi Xitang Village B&B Hotel / Monolith ArchitectsSelected ProjectsGentle House / MonotelloSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Evorich, K&H, Paint 101 Lead Architects: Houseslast_img read more

Much of this gain was attributed to specialty trade contractors, with the increase split between the residential and nonresidential components. Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale said the share of works who expect to return to work within six months remains higher than normal, but “that’s one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal report.” “Even workers expecting only a short disruption in income likely cut back on spending and dipped into savings to make ends meet. Unemployment benefits, which are currently more generous than usual, will help, but major purchases such as cars and homes may be delayed for some buyers until they feel like the jobs market is back to normal,” Hale said. “The longer the disruption in the labor market, the longer consumers may have to wait on making major purchases such as cars and homes.”First American’s Deputy Chief Economist Odeta Kushi said that the housing market was directly hit in last month’s jobs report, as residential construction jobs fell to their lowest level since 2016, but have turned the corner in May. She said residential construction increased by 9.2% in May—just 3.6% below May 2019’s data. “The housing market is helping the economy in recovering from the recession—a role it has traditionally played in previous economic recoveries,” she said. “Homebuilder confidence increased in May after April’s record-breaking decline, as builders responded to low mortgage rates and a continued rise in purchase applications, signs home buyers are back in the market to buy.”Kushi added that in April, pandemic-related pressure drove the supply of homes for sales to its lowest April levels ever recorded. “Even in the years prior to the pandemic, the lack of housing supply for sale was a significant headwind to the housing market. Today’s report is not only a signal that the broader labor market has started to rebound but a bright spot for a housing market in desperate need of more supply. More hammers, more homes,” she said. Robert Dietz, Chief Economist for the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) said on Twitter that in May, home builders and remodelers added 226,000 jobs as housing data recovers. “Measured against a year ago, home builder and remodeler employment are lower by just 148,400 in May after a revised 422,200 job April loss for the sector,” Dietz said. “This is a strikingly strong turnaround, although the sector employment count remains lower.” Tagged with: housing market 2020 Residential Construction Unemployment About Author: Mike Albanese Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago housing market 2020 Residential Construction Unemployment 2020-06-05 Mike Albanese Subscribelast_img read more


first_imgWe aim to identify the important steps in the evolution of the ecosystem approach to management under the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). The first section provides the background to CCAMLR, including the formulation of the convention and its objectives, its operation, and the historical trends in fisheries. Later sections describe (i) the reasons why a precautionary approach to setting catch limits evolved, (ii) how the precautionary approach takes account of ecosystem objectives and provides for the orderly development of new fisheries, and (iii) how the use of ecosystem indicators in the setting of catch limits and for monitoring the effects of fishing is being evaluated. The final section describes the general framework being used to develop a feedback-management system that incorporates objectives, target species assessments and ecosystem assessments. The CCAMLR experience provides two important lessons. First, conservation objectives can only be achieved by implementing management measures, even when very little is known. Second, methods were found for achieving scientific consensus despite the uncertainties surrounding estimates of parameters and the behaviour of the system. CCAMLR is yet to face the real test in its ecosystem approach, the development of the krill fishery. Before this occurs, appropriate management procedures have to be developed to avoid localized effects on the ecosystem and to provide effective feedbacks on the effects of fishing through its monitoring programme.last_img read more


first_img[1] We present measurements of the convection electric field in the dayside ionosphere during extended intervals when the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has a negative B-z component and a significant B-y component (|B-y | similar to |B-z|). Under these conditions, distinct differences in the ionospheric projection of the magnetopause reconnection X-line are predicted by the antiparallel and subsolar merging hypotheses. Close to solstice, in the winter hemisphere the antiparallel merging hypothesis predicts two ionospheric merging lines which are significantly separated either side of noon. This prediction is not expected from any subsolar merging hypothesis (e. g., component merging). Using the method of global convection mapping with line-of-sight velocity data from the SuperDARN HF radar network, we present evidence of two distinct merging regions on the dayside magnetopause under these IMF and seasonal conditions. The two merging regions manifest themselves in the ionosphere as two regions of convection flow with a strong poleward component separated by a region of convection flow with either a weak poleward or equatorward component corresponding to an adiaroic portion of the polar cap boundary. The spatiotemporal nature of the actual convection scenario can be complicated, but the predicted pattern represents a recurring feature of the convection electric field under these IMF and seasonal conditions. These observations lend support to the hypothesis that antiparallel merging is the dominant form of magnetopause reconnection during these steady state IMF intervals. This suggests that the magnetic shear between magnetosheath and magnetospheric magnetic field lines plays the major role in determining the location of reconnection on the dayside magnetopause.last_img read more
