Although the Financial Services Watchdog said UK depositors’ money would be regulated as in any other bank, Anglo will stop new business lending in the region,The capital cost of the plan — the final bill which investors have been seeking — will be known in October when the central bank announces the units’ capital requirements.The prospect of a final price being put on the cost of bailing out Anglo, which has saddled Ireland with the worst budget deficit in the European Union, gave some relief to Irish debt spreads but analysts said overall the lack of detail was disappointing.“We’re still none the wiser really. Okay, it tells you the route they’re going, but I don’t think it gives you any clarity on the amount of money it’s going to cost the exchequer which is what the market is worried about,” said Alan McQaid, chief economist at Bloxham Stockbrokers. The spread on Irish 10-year bonds fell slightly. whatsapp Sharecenter_img Show Comments ▼ Anglo Irish to be split into two whatsapp More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

HMV sales plunge by 10pc in World Cup blow

first_img John Dunne Share HMV sales plunge by 10pc in World Cup blow whatsapp Music, books and games retailer HMV Group reported a 10.6 per cent fall in sales for the first quarter as the World Cup distracted customers from DVDs and books.The group, which is trying to widen its product mix with live music and ticketing, said it was pinning its hopes on a successful Christmas period.“These initiatives, combined with a stronger product line-up, particularly in games, are key to the delivery of a successful Christmas,” Chief Executive Simon Fox said in a statement.HMV added it was making progress in turning around its Waterstone’s bookstores, with improved market share performance and an improving trend in sales growth.However, consumer confidence in the UK remains fragile.Earlier this week department stores group Debenhams said it was cutting prices earlier this week in a bid to attract wary shoppers. HMV also announced the departure of Finance Director Neil Bright, who will take up the role at leisure and travel group Holidaybreak.

He has made a fortune for himself and his investors buying and selling stocks during the past 60 years. Buffett has been so successful because he’s been willing to buy when other investors have been running scared.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…Indeed, Warren Buffett’s investment strategy can be summed up with one of his most famous quotes, “We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.“It is highly likely that Buffett has taken advantage of the market volatility over the past few weeks. The question is, which companies has he been buying in the market crash? Warren Buffett’s favourite companiesWe can use the advice Warren Buffett has issued in the past to get some idea of the sorts of companies he might have been buying recently. For example, we know Buffett likes consumer goods giant Kraft Heinz. Kraft has tried to buy Unilever in the past, which could be a sign that this is the sort of business Warren Buffett would back. As well as Unilever, there’s also a good chance Buffett might be interested in Reckitt Benckiser. These two companies have similar traits. Other companies Warren Buffett might like include banking giant Lloyds. Since the financial crisis, Buffett has spent tens of billions of dollars increasing his holdings of bank stocks. He likes banks that are well-capitalised and earn good returns on tangible assets. According to its latest financial reports, Lloyds has a capital ratio in the mid-teens, well above the minimum. It has also reported one of the highest returns on assets of European banks. The fact that the bank was on track to support a high single-digit dividend yield this year also stands testament to its quality. A company that’s been a mainstay of Buffett’s portfolio since the 1980s is Coca-Cola. A similar company for UK investors could be Britvic or Fevertree. Both of these companies have good reputations and excellent portfolios of consumer brands. Warren Buffett likes companies that can capture, what he calls “share of mind.” As one of the most recognisable mixer brands in the UK, Fevertree certainly meets this criterion. The bottom line These companies give us some idea of the kinds of businesses Warren Buffett would buy in the current market crash. He likes to buy highly profitable companies that have a definite competitive advantage, at low prices. Usually, these businesses command a premium valuation multiple. However, recently, the stock market crash has sent these stocks plunging. While it might be difficult to click “buy” with the prospect of further market declines on the horizon, now could be the time to follow Warren Buffett’s advice. It could be an excellent time to be greedy, while other investors are fearful and these excellent companies are at low prices.  Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img What would Warren Buffett buy in this stock market crash? “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves owns shares of and has recommended Unilever.

The FTSE 250 fared better, but the party is slowing down for it too.  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…But what is true for the overall index is not true for all UK shares. Consider Card FactoryA case in point is Card Factory (CARD), the greeting card and gifts retailer, whose share price is up 20% as I write. I wrote about it last week. But the latest increase is so big, this UK share had to be mentioned again. This is particularly so because I think it shows the potential for UK shares of retail companies for 2021.Retail has suffered during the lockdowns, but things are improving. Soon retailers will be able to open shop. Hopefully this will also come with with less social-distancing precautions, as more and more people get vaccinated. Based on this, aside from CARD, I can think of at least four other retailers that will benefit. And going by the latest share price increase for CARD, I think they could actually double my money in 2021. Strong market for home goods and petsOne of them is the home-goods and grocery retailer, B&M, whose shares have done very well in 2020 owing to its strong performance. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio at around 20 times, I think this UK share can do even better. Another UK share to consider is the retailer Pets at Home. As the name suggests, it is a speciality retailer that sells pet products like food, toys, and accessories. It too has done quite well in 2020. In its last trading update in January, it said that its performance was “ahead of expectations” despite the challenges related to Covid-19. It is poised to do even better.FTSE 100 UK shares show robust increasesI am also looking closely at two FTSE 100 retailers — JD Sports Fashion and Burberry — whose share prices bounced back despite the challenges of 2020. I think 2021 will be good for them as retail stores open, but they are great stocks to hold for the long term. JD Sports Fashion is growing share in the popular athleisure market. Burberry is an iconic luxury-fashion brand. Notably it is popular with in China, probably the fastest growing consumer consumer market. Risks to UK sharesI do think, however, that it is necessary to look at the risks to retailers too. We still have coronavirus variants to worry about. As per media reports, the AstraZeneca-University of Oxford vaccine is not effective on them. There is also the economic slowdown underway. We will know its full effects only later in the year, when things return to normal. If there is a severe slowdown, non-essential retail spending could be hard hit.The take awaySo far, I see more positives than concerns. I think UK shares of retailers can do well in 2021.  Enter Your Email Address Manika Premsingh | Monday, 1st March, 2021 Manika Premsingh owns shares of Burberry and JD Sports Fashion.

All Blacks name Rugby Championship squad

Foster told those not selected while All Blacks team manager Darren Shand informed those who had made it.Man in charge: New Zealand head coach Ian Foster (Getty Images)Foster said of the selections: “On behalf of Foxy and Plums, I want to congratulate all the players named today and particularly the seven new caps. This is a really special day for Alex, Quinten, Tupou, Cullen, Hoskins, Caleb and Will and their families and we congratulate them all. All seven have walked a slightly different path to get here, but the common thing for all of them today is that feeling of hearing your name read out as an All Black.”SANZAAR are yet to confirm the upcoming schedule for the Rugby Championship, so in the meantime these players will head off to compete in the Mitre 10 Cup.Here is the squad:Forwards:HookersAsafo Aumua (23, Hurricanes, uncapped)Dane Coles (33, Hurricanes, 69 caps)Codie Taylor (29, Crusaders, 50 caps)PropsAlex Hodgman (27, Blues, uncapped)Nepo Laulala (28, Chiefs, 26 caps)Tyrel Lomax (24, Highlanders, 1 cap)Joe Moody (31, Crusaders, 46 caps)Karl Tu’inukuafe (27, Blues, 13 caps)Ofa Tuungafasi (28, Blues, 35 caps)LocksQuinten Strange (24, Crusaders, uncapped)Patrick Tuipulotu (27, Blues, 30 caps)Tupou Vaa’i (20, Chiefs, uncapped)Sam Whitelock (31, Crusaders, 117 caps)Loose ForwardsSam Cane (28, Chiefs, 68 caps) – captainShannon Frizell (26, Highlanders, 9 caps) Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Leicester go top with a great win over Sale

first_imgWednesday Apr 8, 2009 Leicester go top with a great win over Sale Earlier in the week we posted a clip of Julian White flooring Andrew Sheridan in the thrilling Guinness Premiership match between the Leicester Tigers and Sale. Weve now got highlights of that match for you, as the two sides battled for the full 80 mins in a high intensity clash at Welford Road.The Tigers showed great resilience as they held out for more than an hour with only 14 men, securing the 37-31 win with a show of mental toughness, and three second half tries.“We just had to keep the belief that we could still play,” acting head coach Richard Cockerill said. “Sometimes it can affect you psychologically when you go a man down.”He added: “We have a good scrum and we want to use it as a weapon and Julian’s physicality is a key.“You have to take off a back-row forward which leaves you short in other areas. But the players have to take the credit because they played off their wits a lot of the time.“They did a lot of things that we don’t practise because of the scenario we were in. I thought, considering what went on during the game, the boys were fantastic.“It was that sort of day and credit lies with the players because the spirit and camaraderie they showed today was second to none.“It was about the players, the club and the supporters and the boys fronted up.”Julian White has since received a two week ban for his punch on England colleague Sheridan.This was a great game of rugby with some superb tries, namely by Alesana Tuilagi, Mark Cueto, and Scott Hamilton.

Rothschild Tower is a simple graceful residential tower lightly resting on a retail base. The design is inspired by Bauhaus principles that were based on functionality and a certain sparseness or economy of means using modern mass produced materials, and in this case a repetitive planning module. The fundamental considerations that shape the tower design are the quality of light in the plan, views to the city and sea, an efficient assembly of “served” and “service” spaces around the core, and the building’s relationship with the existing fabric and massing on Rothschild Boulevard.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeReynolds Logan, design partner-in-charge, comments: “The tower and all its contents are designed to recognize a role as a citizen to the city, with gestures to different scales at the base, shaft, and top of the building. The tower is deliberately lifted above the street on graceful piloti, with an undulating glass wall in deference to the importance of this important intersection of Rothschild and Allenby. The transparency and lofty openness of the ground floor lobby, garden, and retail spaces contribute to a vibrant streetscape.”Save this picture!© 
Scott FrancesSave this picture!Lightness and transparency of the tower and base are the primary goals, not only to reduce the apparent scale and mass in the context of the low to mid-rise neighborhood, or the scale-less reflective towers in the area, but to express the optimism, openness, and energy of the more secular modern character of Tel Aviv. The delicate louver screen is an elegant white “veil,” inspired by the ventilated protective layers of more traditional Middle Eastern clothing. It both defines and obscures the distinction between the public image of the building and the private realm within. The louver elements of the screen protect the delicate clear glass skin, and have local architectural precedents in the ubiquitous “treeseem”, the sliding louver blinds enclosing open air porches or negative spaces so common in the existing neighborhood Bauhaus buildings.Save this picture!© Roland Halbe“Transparency and the related accessibility and connection issues merit respect for the circumstances of each project, especially in dense urban environments. We well recognize the paradoxical nature of balancing those issues, and at the Rothschild Tower the delicate louver screen is an elegant white veil inspired by the ventilated protective layers of more traditional Middle Eastern clothing. It is also a “buffer” of sorts, and obscures the distinction between the public image of the building and the private realm within,” states Mr. Logan.Save this picture!©

Behind the tower a former through-block retail arcade is being restored to its former glory to firmly embed the building and its residents in the pulse of the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeAt the larger scale of the city, the lightness and transparency of the tower will distinguish it dramatically among the glass and heavy neighboring towers, and perhaps inspire sustainable approaches to a more “accessible” character for large buildings in this climate in the future.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeProject gallerySee allShow less64 Social Housing / Guinée et Potin Architectes + Alterlab ArchitectesSelected Projects18 House / Khuon Studio + Phan Khac TungSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Roland Halbe,

Context The MA 4519 project located in the neighborhood of Saavedra, is presented as the opportunity to operate in interstitial, on a residual lot for the traditional real estate market, it investigates the habitat density without resigning quality of life. On a small plot of 8.66 x 12.50 m, in the R2B1 district, without an internal front line, it is allowed to build the entire land of this typical apple, generating a proposal from morphological operations that articulate it in relation to the heterogeneous context of this urban fabric in continuous transformation The project takes advantage of the maximum height of the zoning of the district, from a series of staggered spaces with expansions at different heights that are related to both boundaries. Its virtual volumetry is completed with a metallic structure that redefines the limits, qualifying the spatial conditions of the project.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!Longitudinal Section 1Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianConfiguration-Tectonic In a complex context, we understand that project decisions are crossed by economic conditions, which require us to search for pertinent material experimentation. Projecting the interface between the maximum envelope and the constructive capacity challenges us about the possibilities of generating a virtual volume that opens onto one of the sides. The project takes advantage of the orientation of the land proposing a series of terraced expansions that allow light to filter down to the ground floor. This is achieved by proposing typological variability: locating the units of simple level and greater development of a plant in the lower floors and those of double level (duplex) in the upper ones, dematerializing the volume as it attains height.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianDisposition On the ground floor, there is the entrance hall, the garages and a multipurpose professional apt unit with its own patio. In the first level, 2 small-scale habitat units were projected, which allow us to configure various provisions based on their programmatic indetermination. In the upper level, two duplex units are located, with double expansion generated from retunques and retreats. At the same time, the levels of the same ones were rotated to favor the crossed ventilation and the smaller use of the plant. New public / private gradients are proposed in the accesses to each unit, projecting semi-covered areas integrated into the courtyard of the building, configuring an intermediate space between the common and the unit.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianProject gallerySee allShow lessZapotes Terrace / MO+G taller de arquitecturaSelected ProjectsMachou Designs World’s Longest Urban Agriculture Park for DubaiArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Mariano Acha 4519, C1430DWM CABA, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Texas releases first demographic data on COVID-19 cases

first_imgBenton McDonald ReddIt Twitter + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Facebook ReddIt Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution printHispanics account for one in four COVID-19 cases in Texas, according to data from the Department of State Health Services. The data is based on 2,182 completed case investigations of patients who have tested positive for the virus. A total of 15,492 cases have been reported to the DSHS as of Wednesday, meaning investigations on more than 80 percent of the state’s cases are pending. “DSHS is monitoring the percentage change over time as we receive more completed case reports,” spokeswoman Lyndsey Rosales said. “Because COVID-19 is a novel (new) virus, there is no baseline to determine whether the 25.7 percent of Hispanic cases is high.”A study by the Pew Research Center found that Hispanics and blacks have higher health concerns from COVID-19 than whites. Forty-three percent of Hispanic adults and 31 percent of black adults are concerned about getting the virus, according to the study. They are “far more likely” to be concerned than whites (18 percent), according to the poll, which was conducted from April-12.Additionally, 49 percent of Hispanic adults and 38 percent of black adults are concerned about spreading the virus, compared to 28 percent of white adults. People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 39.6 percent of the state’s population, according to 2019 Census estimates. Their concerns aren’t unfounded.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that black and Hispanic people are more likely to have chronic conditions that could worsen COVID-19 symptoms. They are also more likely to be uninsured in Texas. Twenty-seven percent of the state’s Hispanic population and 15 percent of its black one are uninsured, according to the Texas Tribune. Ten percent of the white population is uninsured. Current racial makeup of over 2,000 COVID-19 cases in Texas. Data courtesy: DSHS.In Texas, whites make up the majority of those contracting COVID-19 at 38.4 percent. Nearly 12 percent were black, who make up 12.8 percent of the state. The number of cases involving black people isn’t tracking with national trends where blacks are being overrepresented elsewhere.In neighboring Louisiana, blacks represent one-third of the state’s population but 70 percent of its COVID-19 deaths, according to data from the Brookings Institute.CDC data has also shown that black people are being disproportionately affected by COVID-19 hospitalizations nationwide. While they make up 18 percent of the population in COVID-19 counties, they represent 33 percent of all hospitalizations. CDC data showing the disproportionate hospitalization rates of Non-Hispanic Black people. Graph courtesy: CDC.The DSHS has not provided specific data on the racial composition of those who have been hospitalized in Texas. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation is projecting cases in Texas will peak on April 29; deaths are expected to peak April 30. The state has set new highs of daily deaths for the last two days. There are cases in 184 of its 254 counties. Rosales said DSHS will update demographic data daily as it receives more complete case investigations.
