The owner of National Irish Bank and Northern Bank posted a pre-tax profit of DK937m (£104.5m) for the second quarter, after a DK828m net loss a year earlier. “Difficult, albeit gradually improving, macroeconomic conditions in several of the group’s markets continued to have an adverse effect on results,” said the firm in a statement. Loan impairment charges totalled DK3.48bn in the last three months, 47 per cent lower than the same time last year and the sixth consecutive drop in as many quarters.“Generally, things are moving in the right direction,” said the firm. “In view of the macroeconomic development, we look at the rest of 2010 with cautious optimism.”The bank’s tier one capital ratio fell slightly in the quarter to 13.7 per cent, but is still one of the highest in the Eurozone. Standard & Poor’s analyst Frank Braden said: “Despite the better-than-expected improvement in loan losses, a large jump in loan impairment charges in Ireland and Northern Ireland highlights the still challenging operating environment.” KCS-content last_img read more

first_img John Menzies sees profit treble NEWSPAPER distributor John Menzies saw half-year profits almost treble.It made £20.6m compared with £7.4m for the same period last year.The company, which also distributes airport cargo worldwide, was boosted by new contracts with Lufthansa/bmi at London Heathrow. John Menzies started in Scotland in 1833 but is now a “time-critical logistics company” – a business that moves goods to a timetable.Menzies said distribution remained a difficult market, but it had been helped by the sale of stickers for the 2010 World Cup.

Shares of Credit Agricole closed up 2.7 per cent on Euronext’s Paris market, having initially surged as much as six per cent. The stock is still down 18 per cent since the start of the year.The investment banking performance helped offset a €643m loss in the group’s international retail banking arm, which was driven by losses in its Emporiki Bank business in Greece.Credit Agricole took a €418m goodwill impairment charge on the business after Emporiki set out its restructuring plans in late June.

Deputy governor Charlie Bean said for the first time over the weekend this could include putting “direct constraints” on individuals’ access to credit at the top of the cycle to preserve the health of banks.The BoE could cap mortgage loan-to-value ratios and demand deposits of up to 25 per cent, Bean said in a speech to American financiers. The limits would be designed to prevent a repeat of the credit crisis, which saw some borrowers granted as much as 125 per cent of their property’s value, leaving them stuck in negative equity when prices tanked.Bean said: “There is the option of introducing direct constraints on the terms or availability of credit… The best approach seems likely to involve a portfolio of instruments.”British Bankers’ Association chief executive Angela Knight welcomed Bean’s suggestions. “What needs to take place now is a proper discussion explaining why at certain times individuals will be restricted in how much they can borrow. The reason these things needs to be discussed is they impact society – rather than just banks – and society needs to understand.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Tags: NULL The UK’s fate: Neither boom nor bust whatsapp A PAINFUL, extended soft patch, not a disastrous hard landing: that was the message from yesterday’s batch of global economic indicators. The US manufacturing survey improved in August, spectacularly refuting widespread expectations of a collapse and fuelling a market rally; the UK’s factory sector is still growing, albeit at a slower rate. Hard-core bulls and permabears alike have been confounded; the truth is to be found in the Third Way – sluggish but positive growth.The 56.3 reading in the US was the highest since May and was driven by gains in production and employment (any reading above 50 suggests increasing output). The jobs index reached its highest level so far this cycle, suggesting that the bloodbath in private sector jobs may soon be coming to an end. The softness in leading components – new orders and inventories – cautions against exuberance but the overall index argues against a double dip, even in the US, currently the weakest of the largest Western economies. There was also good news from China: its manufacturing index rose from 51.2 to 51.7, its first increase in four months; HSBC’s own Chinese index recorded an even faster bounce. India, meanwhile, continues to boom. We are hardly out of the woods – South Korea and Taiwan, which are exposed to Western markets, suffered further declines in their rate of manufacturing growth, as did Australia. Closer to home, manufacturing in the Eurozone grew at its slowest pace for six months, confirming that the recovery is losing some steam after a strong expansion. The UK’s index fell to its lowest level for nine months – but its reading of 54.3 still points to solid, above average growth. Yet as the Ernst & Young Item Club points out, this is consistent with the experience of previous manufacturing recoveries. There is no need to panic. These are merely one batch of indicators but they do confirm my long-held view: the UK is going to suffer from an extended period of weak growth but is very unlikely to suffer an outright double-dip recession. House prices will fall back, as they have already been doing (on average in the UK, if not in London’s hotspots) which will further depress consumer sentiment and borrowing power; highly regulated markets and excessive levels of taxation will cramp the recovery and reduce private sector job creation; the war on banks will continue to limit the availability of credit. This won’t be a Japanese-style, decade-long stagnation but rather a very British period of weak growth, as households readjust to more rational property prices, a smaller state, higher taxes and – in time – to substantially higher interest rates. The biggest short-term risk is not public spending cuts (which are vital) but a slowdown in the growth of the money supply. The amount of money held (mainly in bank accounts) by households and firms stagnated in July but grew at a decent annualised rate of 5.6 per cent over the last three months, suggesting pent-up demand for goods, services and assets. Non-financial companies’ holdings rose 0.9 per cent in July, pushing annual growth to 4.0 per cent. The corporate liquidity ratio (bank deposits divided by bank borrowing) excluding the struggling property sector is at the top of its historical range, implying continued corporate spending. As long as the money supply doesn’t fall back in the Autumn, the UK’s uncertain recovery ought to continue. Fingers crossed.

first_imgSunday 17 October 2010 11:21 pm KCS-content Share whatsapp LEGAL disputes over company names have shot up 43 per cent this year according to new research by Sweet & Maxwell.Companies being taken to tribunal over the registration of a similar, or misleading company name has leapt from 54 last year to 77. Disputes typically occur when one company is thought to be using the name of another in order to cash in on its fame. Once discovered, the original company’s owner can take the copy-cat company to a Company Names Tribunal and force them to change it.Sweet & Maxwell says that a huge proportion of these cases are brought by major blue chip organisations who take steps to protect their brands from opportunistic start-ups who register similar names.

first_img A TAX deal struck between the Obama administration and Republican lawmakers could lift 2011 growth by as much as a full percentage point by leaving more money in consumers’ pockets.Economists say the plan should help breath new life into the sluggish recovery, though it will only add to the already bloated budget deficit.The plan could boost GDP anywhere from a half to a whole percentage point, helping reduce unemployment and lessen the need for the Federal Reserve to increase its monetary stimulus, analysts said.“In all likelihood, the recovery would have made it through next year without backtracking into recession, but this deal improves those odds significantly,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics.The compromise plan, which still needs to clear Congress, would extend all Bush-era tax cuts for two years, give a 13-month extension of unemployment benefits and cut employee payroll taxes by two percentage points.Initial reaction to the deal was positive, as uncertainty over US tax policy was cited as a factor discouraging companies from hiring, keeping the unemployment rate at an elevated 9.8 per cent.Zandi estimated every dollar of government spending on unemployment benefits would give a $1.60 lift to the economy while every dollar spent on a payroll tax holiday would provide a $1.24 boost.But economists estimate the package, which will also extend breaks on dividends and capital gains, could cost up to $1trn and boost the budget deficit to record proportions. It comes at a time when Obama is under pressure to reduce the country’s bloated $1.3trn budget deficit.Ratings firm Moody’s Investors Service said it was worried the extension of the tax cuts could become permanent, hurting U.S. finances and its credit ratings in the long run.

The glitch came following the firm’s acquisition of First Choice in 2007, when two computer systems were brought together.Although the impact was initially downplayed, the firm’s auditor KPMG found £117m of “irrecoverable balances” lost in an accounting black hole.Yet a dispute between the operator and KPMG led to the two parting ways, with PricewaterhouseCoopers expected to take over following TUI’s general meeting early next month.TUI moved to write off the amount, which resulted in a reduction in profit from £443m to £401m for the year to 30 September 2009, with a further £5m hit in the year to 30 September 2010. last_img read more

Virgin plans to withhold bills for landing and parking planes until it sees the results of an internal BAA inquiry into the disruption, due to be published in March.“We’re exploring our legal options but will continue talking to BAA and want the inquiry into what happened last month to be both independent and robust,” Virgin Atlantic spokesman Greg Dawson said yesterday.Heavy snowfall paralysed BAA’s Heathrow airport the week before Christmas, leading to a spate of flight cancellations after the second runway was closed.“We have written to BAA this weekend to advise them that we are withholding our fees from the airport operator until its inquiry into the snow enforced runway closures in December is completed,” Virgin Atlantic said in a statement.Payments withheld by Virgin are thought to be worth less than £10m. BAA’s parent company Ferrovial is legally entitled to seize Virgin’s aircraft for not paying bills, but the firm did not mention this option yesterday. BMI, which complained about BAA’s fees penalising domestic flights last year, also said it was seeking compensation from BAA. BAA said in a statement: “Heathrow’s conditions of use do not provide any basis for Virgin Atlantic or any other airline to withhold airport charges.” It added that it is working with airlines while its enquiry progressed.

UBS analyst James Pearce said the presentation held “few major surprises but the decision was helpful ahead of the introduction of new capital requirements for insurance companies in European Solvency II regulation. “Debt reduction is clearly welcome given Aviva’s above average gearing, and tidies up the balance sheet ahead of Solvency II, which has a bias in favour of Tier 1 capital over Tier 2,” he said.But the surprise decision to replace Aviva’s European chief executive Moneta, after just 18 months, with its North American head Igal Mayer left the market scrambling for an explanation yesterday.Moneta, a board director at Aviva, will leave in February by “mutual consent to pursue new challenges in the industry,” the firm said. Analysts suggested the exit could be linked to problems with the pace of change Moneta was implementing in Europe. Other reports said the move would clear the way for current UK chief executive Mark Hodges to eventually replace group head Andrew Moss.

That compared with a revised 12.9 percent in December and was well above forecasts for an annual rate of 12.6 percent.Producer output prices rose 4.8 per cent on the year, the highest rate since May 2010 and also above forecasts for an annual rise of 4.4 per cent.The figures are likely to worry Bank of England policymakers at a time when consumer price inflation is already nearly double its 2 percent target.The rise in input prices was mainly driven by a 28.8 percent annual rise in the price of crude oil –the biggest increase since May 2010.Prices of imported metals and materials also contributed to the upward pressure.The Bank of England voted to hold interest rates at 0.5 per cent at its monthly meeting on Thursday, but some economists think that it may use next week’s quarterly inflation forecasts to prepare the ground for an increase in the coming months.

During the year, it participated in 29 wells with an 83 per cent success rate. If we take into account Ghanaian discoveries and the hopefully reinvigorated Ugandan business, output net to Tullow of significantly over 200,000 barrels per day is possible, changing the group’s profile entirely.RICHARD GRIFFITH | EVOLUTION SECURITIESTullow had a very good 2010: reserves and resources increasing 60 per cent, its first deepwater development offshore Ghana started up on time and had an 83 per cent exploration success. Yet the shares are only up 15 per cent year on year, reflecting how the Ugandan issue has dragged on the stock.CHARLIE SHARP | MATRIXThe financials were a smidge lower than expected but primarily due to higher finance charges. The Julbilee field is performing just about in line with expectations, although the ramp up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day is a tad slower than initially expected.

first_img John Dunne whatsapp The Bank of England’s supervisory board said that it was uncomfortable with the way Governor Mervyn King’s comments on fiscal policy had been used for political means and that the bank should have “shouted louder” to warn of an impending financial crisis.The chairman of the Bank’s board of directors expressed unease that King had made comments on fiscal policy that were open to a partisan political interpretation.David Lees, who chairs the Bank’s Court of Directors and oversees its Monetary Policy Committee, was asked by a parliamentary committee about a speech King gave in January in which he endorsed the government’s fiscal course.“I’m not terribly comfortable with that because that’s moving away from the general to the particular,” said Court chairman David Lees, who otherwise said he was happy with King’s remarks on the need for fiscal tightening.But Brendan Barber, who heads the umbrella trade union body as well as sitting on the Bank’s Court, put the blame on the coalition for misrepresenting King’s remarks.“They sought to present his remarks as an endorsement of (their) strategy. I think that was very unfortunate and did risk getting the bank drawn in an unhelpful way in what is a very political debate,” Barber said. “I didn’t see (King’s remarks) as a significant variation from his earlier comments.”The Labour Party has occasionally criticised King for compromising the Bank’s independence by apparently endorsing the coalition’s budget plans. King says that fiscal consolidation is necessary — a view shared by all major UK parties – but that he is neutral on whether taxes are raised or spending cut to reduce the budget deficit.Legislators criticised the Court of Directors for not taking a greater interest in the risk of the Bank getting politicised in the debate about how to reduce the budget deficit.Asked what action the Court could take if it felt Governor King had compromised the Bank’s independence, Lees said he would have a “very serious conversation” with King but stopped short of saying whether he would publicly call for King to go.Another Court member said the Bank could have publicised risks to the banking sector more vigorously in the run-up to the financial crisis, although it may not have made any difference.“In terms of what it could have done in the run-up to the crisis, it may have been able to have shouted louder. Whether people would have listened is questionable,” said Roger Carr, a member of the Bank’s Court of Directors since June 2007. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBePeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Todayautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia Tuesday 15 March 2011 11:37 am Share More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comcenter_img whatsapp Bank board uneasy over King deficit comments Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The former Harrods owner is thought to be mulling an improved offer before the deal closes in the summer.If the bid is ratified by shareholders, Peel will pay 200p a share for the 70 per cent of the firm it does not already own, an increase of £8m on its previous offer. It represents a premium of 37.6 per cent to the average closing price for the three months prior to the bid.Pinewood chairman Michael Grade, who has faced calls for his resignation from major shareholder Crystal Amber, said: “The directors have recommended this offer to shareholders as it delivers certainty at an attractive premium.“This stable time in a volatile industry offers shareholders an opportune moment to realise value. “Peel has been a most supportive shareholder, committed to our strategy and vision for the group.”Pinewood was advised by JP Morgan and BDO.John Whittaker, chairman of the Peel Group, said: “The acquisition represents an attractive proposition for the shareholders of Pinewood. “Peel represents a long-term strategic partner for Pinewood in continuing to grow and develop the business.” Al Fayed declined to comment on the recommendation yesterday.The studios last month revealed a plan to invest millions over the next few years to help finance small British films. It says it will set aside money for productions with a budget of around £2-3m. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Topics: Casino & games Finance Social gaming Zynga has big expectations of acquisitions Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 3rd August 2018 | By contenteditor Zynga has cited ongoing growth in its mobile gaming business as the key reason behind a 8% increase in revenue during the second quarter, while the social gaming company also reported better-than-expected results elsewhere. Revenue amounted to $217m (€187.4m) and bookings climbed 12% to £233.9m. Zynga saw 7% year-on-year revenue growth within its mobile business during Q2, with this part of the group now responsible for 89% of total revenue. The revelation comes after Farmville creator Zynga bolstered its mobile arm offering in Q2 when it acquired mobile games developer Gram Games for $250m. Gram Games titles have collectively been downloaded more than 170 million times worldwide. In a statement, Zynga said the Gram Games deal, as well as its acquisition of Casual Cards last year, will have more of an impact on business during the third quarter. “We anticipate that our year-over-year growth will benefit from full quarter contributions from our Casual Cards and Gram Games acquisitions as well as strength across our forever franchises,” Zynga said in a statement. “We continue to expect our sequential and year-over-year progression to be affected by declines in web and older mobile games. Despite revenue growth, Zynga did report an 11% year-on-year drop in adjusted EBITDA, as well as a loss of $900,000, compared to profit of $5.1m in Q2 of last year. However, Zynga was seemingly happy with the result, saying that the adjusted EBITDA figure was above guidance by $7.7m. Similarly, Zynga said net loss was some $14.1m ahead of initial forecasts. Zynga added: “Looking forward, we remain committed to growing Zynga in four ways; delivering growth in our live services; building new games with the goal of creating forever franchises; investing in emerging mobile technologies; and exploring M&A opportunities that will enhance our growth potential. “We’re excited about how we’re executing against our growth strategy as we prioritise delivering value to our players, employees and investors.” Casino & games Farmville creator expects Casual Cards and Gram Games to boost Q3 Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

This is largely due to Representative Michael Zalewski putting forward an open-ended proposal with the ultimate goal of legalising the vertical, leaving the decision on the final model to his Assembly and Senate counterparts. He tells iGamingBusiness.com why he believes this build-as-you-go approach will help generate sufficient support to bring sports betting legislation into law The Illinois legislature has a wide range of regulatory models to consider when it comes to sports betting. This is largely due to Representative Michael Zalewski putting forward an open-ended proposal with the ultimate goal of legalising the vertical, leaving the decision on the final model to his Assembly and Senate counterparts. He tells iGamingBusiness.com why he believes this build-as-you-go approach will help generate sufficient support to bring sports betting legislation into law.In February this year, newly installed Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker factored in $200m in future tax revenue from wagering activities in his 2020 budget proposal. This included $17m of tax revenue for fiscal year 2020, such is his confidence that regulations will be passed in the current legislative session.This effectively sounded the starting pistol on a race to regulate sports betting in the state, with Representative Michael Zalewski currently ahead of the pack with House Bill 3308.When originally filed, HB3308 simply contained a title: “This act may be cited as the Sports Wagering Act.” The bill has been designed to offer Illinois lawmakers a blank slate through which consensus can be built on the best possible model for the state.“Gambling bills in Illinois have traditionally been difficult to pass, as we have struggled to find the right recipe to pass legislation,” Zalewski explains. “This time, rather than waiting to the end of the session to put together one big bill, we’ve put out one that allowed for lots of different methods to be discussed.”“I think it has actually worked out very well,” he says, with four amendments proposed when the bill was assigned to the House Rules Committee, and a fifth added ahead of a sports betting hearing held last week.Zalewski suggests that the ultimate goal is to hit Pritzker’s financial targets. Pritzker has already suggested a model whereby 20 licences will be issued, at a cost of $10m each, with licensees then taxed at 20% of sports betting revenue.Zalewski says that under this structure, the goal of raising $200m is “very reasonable”, and predicts that the state could then generate between $40m and $60m each year, depending on how fast the market matures. Raising the money may be the goal, but how it is raised remains up for debate.Multiple models Three of the models put forward retain the $10m licence fee. Zalewski himself has proposed what is being described as the “New Jersey model”. This would see land-based and riverboat casinos permitted to offer online and land-based wagering, and allowed to operate skins as sub-licensees. Land-based revenue would be taxed at 15%, with online and mobile wagering taxed at 20% of revenue.The second amendment, put forward by Representative Katie Stewart, is described as the “Mississippi model”. This would see racetracks, casinos and off-track facilities allowed to offer wagering, though only 10 online licences would be available to land-based casinos.Representative André Thapedi’s proposal, meanwhile, has been dubbed the “professional sports league amendment”. It cuts the tax rate to 12.5%, but mandates an additional levy of 0.25% of handle be paid to the Illinois Gaming Board. This would then be distributed to the US professional sports leagues and governing bodies.The final proposal, Elizabeth Hernandez’s “lottery oversight amendment”, would see all sports betting conducted via the Department of the Lottery. It would limit sports betting in Illinois to land-based channels, with 50% of gross sports betting receipts to go to the state.The quartet was joined by a fifth ahead of last week’s hearing, added by Representative Bob Rita. This simply sets out a so-called bad actor clause, which states that any business that has accepted wagers in the state before legislation is passed be blocked from applying for a licence.It was made clear in the hearing that this is designed to block FanDuel and DraftKings from the market. The pair continued to offer daily fantasy contests in the state after the games were ruled to violate state law in 2015, and continue to dispute the ruling.While he put forward the so-called New Jersey model, Zalewski says that he did so as the legislation is “the most similar to what people would broadly expect a bill to look like”.Courting brick-and-mortar support “It gives the brick-and-mortar casinos and racetracks priority, whose support will be needed,” he explains. “I’m not wedded to it by any stretch; the other amendments we filed are also viable regulatory models, though I think the New Jersey model is a good starting point.”Ultimately, he says he will commit to supporting whichever regulatory model is chosen following the hearings and discussions with lawmakers.Yet this could mean he may find himself committing to backing the bad actor clause, which could potentially lock FanDuel and DraftKings, the leading lights of New Jersey’s regulated market, out of Illinois.“I think that amendment was put forward by a brick-and-mortar casino that was very interested in having sports wagering, that are very interested in having a corner of the market,” Zalewski says of Rita’s amendment. “They are very concerned that DFS will have an improper monopoly [due to the likes of FanDuel and DraftKings’ activity in the state], so asked for the amendment to be filed.“We will work with the casinos and the fantasy sports operators to try to reach an agreed disposition.”Despite the amendment shifting focus away from the core business of sports betting regulation during the hearing, he insists that bringing up such issues are important – even if he does suggest that it’s only a minor element of the debate.“I think it’s always healthy to have a good discourse and to allow people to negotiate these things in the open air, so I don’t mind healthy disagreement,” he says. “I think the DFS operators are a small part of this conversation, but I’m happy to have this sort of dialogue.”He says that such issues arise because, to an extent, the state’s brick-and-mortar casinos believe the sports betting conversation should centre around them.“They’ve invested a lot of capital and employ a lot of people, so they do play an important role, but I think it’s important to put the best policy forward for the state, so that’s why we’re keeping our options open,” Zalewski says.But keeping the options open means there is still a lot more work needing to be done. Zalewski says more hearings will take place in the coming weeks, to flesh out the proposals further, after which a new round of refined amendments will be introduced.“When we do that we’ll hopefully whittle down our options and come forth with an agreed bill,” he says.The clock is ticking, with the 2019 regular session ending on May 31. There is now just less than two months in which to finalise the preferred regulatory model and shepherd it through the two legislative chambers.Despite this Zalewski says he feels “appropriately optimistic”.“I think the governor really wants to get this done,” he says. “We have a majority of Democrats in the House and Senate, and Republicans have suggested they are willing to cooperate, so I would put my optimism levels at ‘appropriate’.” Regions: US Illinois Consensus building in Illinois Tags: Fantasy Sports Online Gambling 4th April 2019 | By Joanne Christielast_img read more

Betting revenue was up 5.5%, but all other areas saw declines in the first half.However, Stars was boosted by revenue growth from its UK operations, which comprises the Sky Betting & Gaming business. Revenue totalled $432.0m driven by $220.9m in betting revenue and $182.9m in gaming revenue.Stars also saw its Australian business, comprising the CrownBet and former William Hill Australia assets, report a 74.4% year-on-year increase in revenue to $126.2m, again driven by betting revenue, which was up 71.7% to $124.3m.In terms of spending, total adjusting items for the period stood at $432.1m, up from $343.3m last year. Depreciation and amortisation costs rocketed from $83.8m to $218.4m, while other costs climbed from $26.7m to $48.5m.However, such was the impact of Sky Betting & Gaming on Stars and its revenue in the first half that the operator was able to turn a net loss of $80.5m in the first half of last year to net earnings of $32.3m. Gross profit excluding depreciation and amortisation was also up 37.6% to $881.5m.Adjusted net earnings were down 9.9% year-on-year to $243.1m, but adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) increased 25.9% to $432.1m.Stars was boosted by a positive performance in the second quarter, during which revenue hiked by 54.9% year-on-year to $637.6m. Again, this was mainly a result of the addition of Sky Betting & Gaming to the group, with online sports betting responsible for 36% of all revenue, compared to 20% last year.Stars said 79% of consolidated revenues were derived from locally regulated or taxed markets in the three months to June 30, compared to 61% in the same period last year.Aside from revenue, net earnings amounted to $4.6m in Q2, compared to a net loss of $154.8m last year, while gross profit increased 41.4% to $463.7m.“The second quarter underpinned the success of last year’s acquisitions, particularly with the record performance of Sky Betting & Gaming and our increasing product and geographic diversification, as we continue to transform and position the business to execute on our strategy for strong, sustainable future growth,” Stars’ chief executive, Rafi Ashkenazi, said.“2019 has been and remains a year of integration, execution and debt reduction. We are committed to those key strategic priorities for the rest of the year while we also build our foundation and momentum to become a market leader in the US.“We are confident that the actions we have taken over the last year, and are pursuing now, including to reassess our fixed cost base, put us in a strong position to deliver our mid-term growth targets from the end of 2019.”However, despite posting growth in the first half, Stars has moved to lower its full-year guidance. Revenue projections have been cut from between $2.64bn and $2.77bn to a range of $2.5bn to $2.56bn.Adjusted guidance has also been lowered from between $960m and $1.01bn to a range of $905m to $930m.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 21st April 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: People Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Tags: Online Gambling Victorian RG foundation issues gambling guidance for shutdown The Victorian Responsible Gaming Foundation has published new guidance to help protect consumers in the Australian state from gambling-related harm during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Victoria is currently in a state of shutdown in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus, with many people ordered to stay at home.The Foundation said it expects an increase in online gambling as people seek to stave off boredom, entertain themselves, de-stress and manage anxiety during the shutdown. With this, the Foundation said it may also see a rise in problem gambling.Online gambling is more risky the other types of betting, the Foundation claimed, as it is easier to bet and lose money quickly. It highlighted factors such as players not keeping track of losses and the fact that online games are available all hours of the day.“Many scenarios can lead people to gamble online,” the Foundation’s principal clinical advisor Tony Clarkson said. “During this stressful period, some people may seek escape in a new activity or take up gambling again after a break.“Those accustomed to visiting a venue to gamble may try online gambling to manage their urges. Others might choose to participate in different forms of gambling available through various apps and websites.”The Foundation noted the impact of ‘personalised’ promotional offers via email, SMS, social media, pop-up ads or a combination of all of these. It said that such promotions make people think about betting more than normal, while also make it seem like everyone will win, even though some lose more than they win.“Online gambling may not feel satisfactory, and the risk is that people may end up gambling more – and losing more – to satisfy an urge,” Clarkson said. “The bottom line is that gambling doesn’t always relieve stress, but it can generate additional stress due to financial losses, and cause a person’s wellbeing to suffer.”In addition, the Foundation picked out other risks recently highlighted by the Australian Media and Communications Authority, including illegal gambling websites.The Foundation said that while these sites may appear legitimate, they operate outside Australian laws and do not comply with national customer protection regulations. It said some customers reported being unable to retrieve winnings, while others saw unauthorised withdrawals of funds from their bank accounts.For consumers in Victoria negatively affected by their own or someone else’s gambling, the Foundation said residents can call the 24/7 Gambler’s Help service for confidential support or visit its dedicated website.last_img read more

first_imgFDJ said its “advertising and marketing strategy aims to promote a gaming model in which many players bet small amounts”.  The marketing drives undertaken by both companies should be seen in that context: strategies to modernise their respective images and attract a younger (online) player base that they can develop and maintain on a long-term basis. In theory this largely applies to their land-based activities.  French monopolies under the social responsibility spotlight “However, excessive restrictions – or even a total ban on gaming advertising – would be counterproductive, as they would favour the development of illegal online gaming activities, leaving players and minors less protected,” it continued.  France’s new gambling regulator L’Autorité nationale des jeux (ANJ) pledged to pay particular attention to industry advertising and player protection in the coming year. But the companies targeted as it ramps up these efforts may be surprising, writes Jake Pollard. It is stating the obvious to say that the level of scrutiny and regulatory oversight of online operators’ marketing activities across European markets has increased significantly in recent years.  Email Address This was “fundamental to how PMU carries out its activities, the group will put in place all the necessary measures to respond to those aims.  “For this model to be viable over the long term, it is essential to build loyalty among existing players for the lowest-stakes games and to recruit new players, while developing a growth model that upholds responsible gaming principles,” it explained.  The group added it is supportive of regulation of gaming advertising in France and the ANJ’s monitoring and oversight to prevent the negative effects of excessive advertising that could encourage irresponsible gambling behaviour. Such behaviour would be detrimental to all operators, it said.  Others point to products such FDJ’s retail app (FDJ Points de vente), a bring your own device (BYOD) solution which is distinct from its betting app and allows punters to select a bet, which generates a QR code. They can then take the QR code to a high street outlet to scan and place their wager. Clearly operators need to strike a balance between marketing their products, building their appeal and attractiveness and preventing problem gambling and underage gambling.  Competitive pressures PMU started its online adventure promisingly but has faded in recent years, while Parions Sport, for a number of reasons that were not always within FDJ’s control, never really got going. In addition, newer fixed odds entrants like Zebet, the sports betting site for horse racing tote Zeturf, are growing strongly through aggressive pricing and clever marketing.  They and other betting brands will be marketing their products and promotions heavily. As a result, advertising budgets are expected to rise 26% this year on 2019 total of €239m (figures for 2020 are not accounted for as they were badly impacted by the pandemic).   1st March 2021 | By Robin Harrison Describing the “specific case of the monopoly operators (FDJ and PMU)”, ANJ commented: “From an examination of the promotional strategies of these two operators under exclusive rights, it emerges that the Authority has serious concerns […], in particular with regard to the case law of the European Court of Justice and the State Council which recalls that the advertising efforts of the monopolies must remain measured and strictly limited to what is necessary to channel consumers into controlled gambling networks. PMU told IGB that it was focused on meeting ANJ’s stated aim of preventing underage and problem gambling and fighting money laundering.  The wording is noteworthy and direct. Essentially ANJ is saying that FDJ and PMU are very close to glamorising gambling and giving it an overly positive image. Looking back at some of the recent decisions published by the ANJ’s monitoring committee (collège), things become clearer.  Meanwhile PMU’s strategy to increase “the attractiveness of its offer and modernise its image can unintentionally lead to the targeting of young adults even though this category of the population presents a high risk of developing problem gambling” behaviours, ANJ said.  Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Compliance Regulation Marketing With regard to its activities, FDJ added: “Corporate and social responsibility has always been central to FDJ’s business model; the group’s aim is to market its products, but its priority is responsible gaming.  “In addition, in connection with this case law, ANJ will be vigilant to ensure that any advertising or promotional campaign by these operators does not hide behind arguments of general interest to give a positive image of gambling or to justify it.” Regulated operators also point out that marketing enables them to channel the vast majority of players to legal betting and gaming sites, even if context is also important in this instance.  If the wording of the comments towards both historic operators was somewhat surprising, it should also be viewed within the context of the commercial and competitive pressures FDJ and PMU are under.  The pandemic has of course had a major impact on both companies’ retail activities. FDJ’s activities suffered in 2020, while for PMU the closures of many hippodromes across France last year was keenly felt. But overall both companies’ offline activities also illustrate how they need to reform and rejuvenate their clientele.  The proactive monitoring of operators’ marketing and promotional activities shouldn’t come as a surprise. ANJ’s new president Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin spelled out her intention to put players at the heart of her work in an interview with iGB last year.  Compliance But when it comes to online verticals and specifically sports betting, FDJ’s Parions Sport and PMU.fr lag some distance behind the leading trio of Winamax, Betclic and Unibet. Those three brands each have around a 20% share of the online market, while PMU and FDJ hover around the 5% mark along with a number of other betting brands.  Little sympathy center_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter An ANJ decision published on 21 January restated the point that under European law gambling monopolies must focus on channelling consumers to regulated products as part of a campaign of controlled growth. They must protect against excessive play and any potential for underage gambling, it continued.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter With both FDJ and PMU’s retail activities hit hard by event cancellations and high street closures, the pressure is on to make up for lost revenue. Pandemic-permitting, the rescheduled European football championships and Olympic Games will present them with a major opportunity to sign up new payers.  Regions: Western Europe France It will be interesting to follow this topic in the coming months, especially if PMU and FDJ are unable to reclaim market share in the online sports betting vertical. But so far ANJ is doing what it said it would. “To this end, the group has put in place specific measures, such as the commitment to devote 10% of its TV advertising budget to responsible gaming, a commitment not made by any other French operator.” The bluntness of ANJ’s press release was striking, mainly because it is so rare to see such language directed at national operators. By way of comparison, many British operators are adamant that the National Lottery should be more closely monitored when it comes to marketing and player communications. CSR central to business model France is steering a different course on the matter. There is no talk of forbidding operators from advertising on radio or TV; even if there are regular complaints, from both inside and outside the industry, bemoaning the volume of adverts for online bookmakers during half-time breaks.  “All of FDJ’s marketing materials are developed with this ultimate goal in mind. They also help channel player demand into controlled networks.” Noting the scope and ambition of both groups’ marketing strategies for 2021, ANJ warned that FDJ’s marketing should not “encourage a natural disposition towards gambling by making it appear commonplace or giving it a positive image linked to general interest activities or through the potential for major financial rewards.”  The current situation in Great Britain is a case in point. In England alone eight Premier League clubs have gambling operators as shirt sponsors. And with marketing being the most high-profile of the industry’s activities, it was always bound to be closely scrutinised.  A quick look at this slick FDJ promotional video gives an idea of what ANJ is referring to. Furthermore, the regulator’s industry data for the third quarter of 2020 showed that 56% of operators’ marketing budgets were spent on acquisition and retention of players. This indicates why its statement focused on personalisation and customer loyalty in its statement.  It made similar points about FDJ’s targeting of younger demographics and in relation to both groups’ personalisation and customer loyalty strategies. It said this could increase the intensity and frequency of those consumers’ betting and gaming habits. When it comes to advertising however, it also showed that legal advertising was not always needed to develop a substantial vertical. Black and white hat SEO and online advertising are very efficient in developing a strong, albeit unregulated, igaming activity in a highly regulated market.  Tags: La Française des Jeux L’Autorité nationale des Jeux Pari-Mutuel Urbain Speaking to contacts working with licensed private operators in France however, there is little sympathy for either FDJ or PMU. All point to the built-in commercial and regulatory advantages those groups have benefited from since 2010.  “Betting and gaming advertising is useful in that it channels player demand to controlled environments, promoting games that encourage moderate and responsible use. In this regard, ANJ has a key role to play, particularly with respect to online gaming activities, where advertising by operators is especially prevalent.” The average age of a PMU retail client is 45 years old, compared with 35 for an online horse racing enthusiast and around 30 years old for an online sports betting and poker player. FDJ’s core demographics, considering retail sales remain by far its largest channel, are likely to be similar.  “Beyond that, PMU must be a reference when it comes to responsible gambling and executes its strategy with that in mind.”  Many of these, such as PMU’s co-mingling of online and retail player pools for horse racing, had to be fought and eventually defeated via long and costly legal battles.  “Serious concerns”  But ANJ’s remit has also expanded considerably when compared to its online-focused predecessor L’Autorité de régulation des jeux en ligne (ARJEL). It oversees close to 80% of France’s gambling sector, including all FDJ and PMU retail outlets, whereas ARJEL only covered around 11% of the market. Its statements should also be seen in that context.  In late January, France’s igaming regulator the Autorité Nationale des Jeux(ANJ) published a statement in laying out its roadmap for monitoring operators’ promotional strategies for 2021. Few could have expected to read its blunt words about the marketing practices of national lottery monopoly La Française des Jeux (FDJ) and its horse racing equivalent Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU).  FDJ meanwhile told IGB that ANJ had “reminded all operators, and not only FDJ and PMU, of the need to strike the right balance in their marketing of betting and gaming activities.” In that respect Italy and Spain have gone further. The former has banned bookmakers and casinos from all major advertising platforms and the latter is set to introduce its own ban in the coming weeks.  A recent report in the financial newspaper Les Echos highlighting the €1.4bn unregulated online casino industry that targets French players was shared widely by the European Gaming and Betting Association and other stakeholders to put pressure on EU regulators. last_img read more

Should the recommended operator be selected by City Council, residents will vote on its proposal in a referendum. 22nd April 2021 | By Robert Fletcher “We appreciate Bally’s interest to develop a resort casino project in Richmond,” director of Richmond’s Department of Economic Development, Leonard Sledge, said. “The Evaluation Panel is no longer considering the Bally’s project or the Parkway Crossings site for a resort casino due to concerns about site access, environmental factors, and required approvals from non-city entities that may not be granted or extend the project timeline. Last month, Bally’s Richmond Casino Resort was named alongside Live! Casino & Hotel Richmond from the Cordish Companies and One Casino + Resort from Maryland-based media business Urban One as the three proposals that the City of Richmond was considering to run the casino.

Obviously for the people involved (ECB) in the whole process and the set-up it will be really exciting but I cannot think of one more format, to be honest,” Kohli said.“Honestly, I don’t want to be a testing sort of a cricketer for any new format. I don’t want to be someone who’s going to be part of that World XI who comes and launches the 100-ball format.”Kohli also explained the difference between leagues like IPL or the Big Bash League from the proposed 100-ball format. “I love playing the IPL, I love watching the BBL, because you are working towards something, competing against high-quality sides and it gets your competitive juices flowing. That’s what you want as a cricketer. I am all for the leagues, but not to experiment.”Kohli, who missed out on his much-hyped county stint with Surrey due to an injury, however said that he would love to play first-class cricket in England.“County cricket always intrigued me.

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address Right now is a good time to invest in FTSE stocks and shares. The market crash offers a unique opportunity to buy shares in wonderful companies at a discount. Much as a rising tide is said to lift all boats, a market crash sinks all shares to a degree.The panic-selling that typifies a market crash affects all stocks, including those with excellent prospects. For example, if investors panic and sell their FTSE 250 index-tracking ETF, that triggers a sale of all shares, both good and bad, in the index.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…The opportunity lies in buying stocks that have declined far more than they should have done based on their fundamentals. These stocks were dragged down by the market, rather than dragging the market down themselves.Not all stocks are equalJust picking a stock that is trading well below its pre-market crash peak won’t do. The market crashed for a reason. The global coronavirus outbreak and the efforts to contain it have affected economies near and far. And they will continue to do so. Considering how companies might struggle will help investors identify those that represent buying opportunities in this bear market.Some businesses have faced a slump in demand for their products and services and may not have the financial strength to survive. Unless these businesses receive assistance, they may go bust. If they do receive support, it may leave them with even weaker balance sheets in the future.Maybe consumers who go without a company’s product or service during the lockdown will find they can happily live without it. If a business cuts production capacity during the crisis but cannot ramp back up quickly, then a better-positioned competitor might swoop in capturing their market share.Better positionedI have recently bought shares in two companies whose prices slumped. The first was RELX, whose shares fell over 25% in the crash. RELX publishes scientific journals, legal and technical texts, provides risk and decision analytic services, and organises exhibitions. I think it is a bear market opportunity because it generates the bulk of its revenues digitally and via subscriptions. Although exhibition revenues will suffer, everything thing else is likely mission-critical for users and should hold up well.The other company I bought was Fevertree. Its shares had been declining for a while, but the market crash wiped another 40% or so off the price. Fevertree will likely see a fall in the sales of its beverages this year. But it has a robust balance sheet to help it survive a demand slump and has historically generated a lot of cash due in part to outsourcing much of its manufacturing. I believe the company and its brand has the strength to pick up where things left off once the crisis is over.Market crash opportunityThere will be other healthy companies that will survive and prosper and whose shares are trading at a discount right now. Buying now might be scary as no one knows for sure when the market will bottom. But remember that bull markets last longer and deliver more in gains than bear markets take away. Investors who buy shares in great companies now, at a discount, will be glad they took the opportunity the market crash has offered in the years to come.

Kevin Godbold | Monday, 4th May, 2020 Share prices may have bounced back from their coronavirus lows in many cases, but I think the best of the stock market recovery is still to come.As the lockdowns around the world ease, businesses will recover and share prices will likely reflect improved trading in the months and years ahead.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…So now could be a good time to focus on which stocks to buy. We have more information to go on than we did before because many firms have been updating the market about how trading has been going through the crisis. And the directors of companies have been setting out their expectations for the future.Cheaper stocksIn my quest to make a million from the stock market recovery, I’d first look for cheaper shares. The uncertainty of the crisis and lower short-term profits caused many shares to plummet. And lower share prices can mean better value.However, a lower share price doesn’t guarantee better value, but it’s a good start in your search. Because we often find better value when a short-term hit to business causes a temporary setback. So, your research now could aim to find companies with recovery potential.Of course, not all businesses will survive the effects of this crisis. So you first need to identify those that have the potential to survive and thrive after the crisis abates.High-quality businessesBusinesses have many different characteristics and they’re not the same as each other. Many have low-quality operations characterised by small profit margins and intermittent earnings. Others are highly cyclical and look great one minute and dire the next. Some companies have huge debts and others operate in cutthroat sectors with undifferentiated offerings.However, to ride the stock market recovery, I’d look for the best and highest quality underlying businesses I can find. And they’ll likely enjoy a strong trading niche and a well-defended economic moat. You’ll recognise such stock market stars because they’ll sport decent quality metrics, such as a high return against assets and capital employed. They often have higher profit margins and there’s usually a strong financial and trading record featuring robust and rising cash inflow.A long-term perspectiveTo make a million from the stock market recovery, I’d aim to hold on to my quality shares for the long haul. If you do that, the underlying business has a chance to grow and the operational progress could reflect in shareholder returns over the years ahead.As well as a rising share price, you’ll probably see ever greater income from the shareholder dividend. Indeed, there was quick money to be made from the recent stock market rebound if you chose your shares carefully. But we think long term at The Motley Fool. And I reckon we now have a shot at making a million from the enduring stock market recovery that could follow.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

After a sizeable surge since Halloween, the FTSE 100 index is taking a breather. As I write, the index is down roughly 125 points (1.9%) from Monday’s mid-afternoon peak of 6,455. Nevertheless, the Footsie has gained almost 745 points (13.3%) since October, making this a positive month for UK shareholders. On the other side of the Atlantic, news of a highly effective Covid-19 vaccine from US biotech Moderna lifted stock prices again. Yesterday, the S&P 500 index closed at a record closing high of 3,627 points, up 11.2% in 2020. Despite these recent rises, I still see hidden value in quality FTSE 100 companies selling cheaply today. For example, I’d buy these cheap shares right now.GSK is one of my favourite FTSE 100 stocksHabitual Fool readers will know that I write about GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) more often than almost any other FTSE 100 firm. That’s because I regard its cheap shares of one of the biggest low-risk bargains in the entire Footsie. Having been a GSK shareholder for most of the past 30 years, I’ve followed its fortunes over the decades. Also, I’ve had a couple of close relatives work in leading scientific roles at GSK, so I’ve seen the company from the inside.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…Under new CEO (and recent Dame) Emma Walmsley, GSK has been undergoing enforced evolution. It is now focused on being a world leader in immunology, oncology (cancer), HIV/AIDS, respiratory treatments, and vaccines. And, being the UK’s second-largest pharmaceutical company, you’d expect the Covid-19 pandemic to boost GSK’s share price, right? Wrong, because these cheap shares just keep getting cheaper.Cheap shares: GSK is down 25% in 10 monthsAs I write, the GSK share price is 1,395p, having falling back 47p (3.3%) overnight. Although this is 111p (8.6%) above the stock’s 52-week closing low of 1,284p on 30 October, I believe GSK’s cheap shares have far further to rise. After all, at their 2020 high on 24 January, they closed at 1,857p, which is 1.33 times the current price. In other words, GSK shares have fallen almost exactly a quarter (24.9%) in 10 months, which puts them in crash territory.In my view, GSK’s cheap shares should appeal to a wide range of conservative investors, such as value seekers and income investors. GSK is what I call an ‘SLR share’, in that it offers Safety, Liquidity, and Returns, as follows:Safety: GSK is a FTSE 100 heavyweight with a market value of £73.4bn, so you know it’s not going to go away any time soon.Liquidity: GSK shares are among the most liquid, being easy to buy and sell in very large quantities.Returns: For the past five years, GSK shares have paid a yearly dividend of 80p.Today, GSK’s cheap shares offer a chunky dividend yield of 5.73%. This is about 1.8 times the FTSE 100’s dividend yield of roughly 3.2%. In fact, at £4bn a year, GSK’s yearly cash payout is the fifth-largest by size in the entire UK stock market. Also, GSK’s stock is cheap in historical valuation terms. It trades on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 10.8 and an earnings yield of 9.3%.For me and other GSK shareholders, 2020 hasn’t been a great year. But I think 2021 will see GSK producing much higher returns, especially for investors buying in at these depressed prices. That’s why I’d buy these cheap shares today, ideally inside an ISA, to pocket decades of tax-free cash dividends and future capital gains! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Cliffdarcy owns shares of GlaxoSmithKline.

Jonathan Smith | Wednesday, 2nd December, 2020 | More on: THG In recent weeks, the Bitcoin price has been shooting higher. It traded just shy of $20,000, and is currently trading around $19,000. The unprecedented volatility has seen the price move 166% higher over the course of 2020. For those who missed out on the rally, or simply didn’t feel comfortable getting involved (like me), it’s not the end of the world.I’m looking towards more traditional stocks to make me healthy returns for 2021. To this end, THG Holdings (LSE: THG) is a company I think could have a strong share price performance next year. For reference, THG Holdings is also known as The Hut Group. 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…From zero to IPOYou’ve likely heard of THG recently thank to the public listing in September. The IPO was the largest on the LSE since 2013, and it currently has a market capitalisation of almost £6.4bn. It’s an online retailer but is also categorised as a high-growth tech firm, having only been set up in the early 2000s. The business is involved in helping other firms build and grow their brand. This is mostly from an e-commerce perspective, but as THG has grown, it now incorporates other elements too.Investors like me couldn’t get a piece of the action when it was a private limited company, but since the listing, everyone can get involved in buying THG shares. Being public also means greater news flow to investors and greater financial transparency. So what can we discern from the information we’ve got so far?THG shares look attractiveThe latest release following the IPO was its Q3 results. In it, THG showed year-on-year revenue growth of 38.6%, with guidance that the full-year figures should show revenue of £1.43bn for growth of 25%. These figures are strong, but also highlight to me that the business isn’t at risk from Covid-19 particularly. Although THG does operate in the retail space, the impact of any slowdown would be an indirect one in most cases.THG shares also benefited from the recent announcement that 500 new jobs are going to be created by the end of the year. Most of these will be in the technology services division where the real growth is being driven from. At a time when many businesses are cutting jobs, this is a major tick in the box for sustainable growth in whatever shape the UK economy finds itself!The final reason I think THG shares could have long-term upside is the types of companies it’s partnering with. Over the past couple of months, new partnerships have been announced with Hotel Chocolat and Homebase. The fact that these household names are choosing THG to aid digital transformation or general growth strategy speaks volumes to me. It shows that THG is a well respected firm within the industry.Looking to the long-termFor 2021 and beyond, I think the shares could be top performers. The financial performance is strong, and unaffected by Covid-19 so far. With the weight of new brands coming on board, I think the stock has slid under the radar so far. As a result, it’s currently sitting on the top of my watchlist for exciting shares! Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Missed the Bitcoin rally?

first_img Royston Wild | Thursday, 4th March, 2021 Investing in UK shares always carries a degree of risk. And as the pandemic rolls on the dangers for many British stocks are more elevated than usual. New Covid-19 cases are still emerging across the globe as dangerous virus variants spread. There is also the threat of rising inflation to think about and what impact this could have on the global economy.Investors should certainly never buy UK shares using money they can’t afford to lose. But I for one plan to invest in British stocks for the new bull market. I build my Stocks and Shares ISA with companies I think will deliver decent shareholder returns beyond the short-to-medium term. And I think there are many top stocks that will have the strength to weather, or perhaps even thrive, during a bumpy economic recovery.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…The UK share price fightbackI’m a firm believer in buying UK shares after stock market crashes. My faith is built on quite solid foundations too, I think. Let’s look at the FTSE 100’s performance in the wake of the global banking crisis during the 2000s. The blue chip index soared 124% in value from the troughs of 3,512 points it hit during the 2008/2009 crisis to the all-time highs of 7,877 points struck in spring 2018.Global stock markets rose strongly as economic conditions improved, corporate profits rebounded, and investor confidence flowed back into financial markets. They also leapt thanks to the massive support provided by central banks and governments. Additional rate cutting and stimulus packages launched during the current economic crisis bodes well for stock prices during this new bull market, too.Wise words from Warren BuffettOf course past performance is no indication of future returns. As I say, a prolonged public health emergency and rising inflation could hamper the scale of the economic recovery. Other macroeconomic problems like trade wars, Brexit, and escalating sovereign debt levels could hit UK share investor returns during the 2020s as well.So far, though, stock markets have risen to overcome severe social, economic, and political challenges and deliver big returns. As investment guru Warren Buffett famously opined, “in the 20th century, the United States endured two world wars and other traumatic and expensive military conflicts; the Depression; a dozen or so recessions and financial panics; oil shocks; a flu epidemic; and the resignation of a disgraced president. Yet the Dow rose from 66 to 11,497.”Once again, I fully expect UK shares to rise strongly following the 2020 stock market crash. Its why I’ve kept investing in my Stocks and Shares ISA since last year’s market correction. I bought Coca-Cola HBC as I think that, despite intense competition, that sales should boom as broader consumer spending levels recover. I bought Games Workshop too as international expansion could deliver excellent long-term returns in spite of the growth of illegal 3D model printing. And there are many other top UK shares I’m looking at today.

first_imgThe bull case for the AMC share priceIgnoring the influence from speculators buying to profit from the short-squeeze, there are some reasons to be optimistic about the long-term potential of the AMC share price. And one of the main ones is the reopening of the US economy.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…Much like here in the UK, for a prolonged period of 2020, cinemas around America remained closed. This decimated the firm’s gross income, with total revenue falling to $1.24bn versus $5.47bn a year before. Fortunately, cinemas have now reopened in most states, albeit at a reduced capacity.So the money is finally flowing again. And due to the relatively rapid rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, around 60% of the US population aged 18 and up have received their first dose. This is potentially excellent news for the AMC management team, as an accelerated vaccination rate might enable them to increase their cinema capacity sooner than expected.Another encouraging sign is the surprisingly stellar performance of Godzilla vs Kong that debuted in March this year. Despite many cinemas being closed worldwide, the film has become the highest-grossing release since the pandemic began. Thus demonstrating large pent-up demand among consumers to return to the big screen experience.This sounds like it could be time for the AMC share price to make a comeback after the chaos of 2020. But as promising as it seems, one look at the balance sheet made me seriously sceptical over the long-term potential of this business.Dwindling AMC potential growthDisregarding the exceptional year that was 2020, the business behind the AMC share price does not look particularly attractive to me. Why? There are a few reasons. First and foremost is the contraction of its industry. Looking at historical data, the volume of cinema tickets sold has been declining since 2002.Cinema operators like AMC have managed to offset the reduced number of tickets sold by increasing confectionary prices. However, now that streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ are either releasing films directly to their platforms or reducing the window of cinema exclusivity, maintaining growth has become quite challenging.To overcome this issue, AMC has been employing acquisitive strategies to expand its chain of locations. But this has led to an enormous build-up of debt that has pushed it to the brink of bankruptcy. In 2019, AMC had over $4.8bn of debt on its balance sheet that meant a $317m interest bill in 2020. That’s nearly three times more than the firm’s operating profits. And last year, this level of debt increased by a further $1bn.The management team is now turning to investors to raise additional capital to keep its lights on. And so, with a shrinking market size, an enormous pile of loan obligations, and a massive amount of equity dilution ahead, the AMC share price definitely looks like a bubble waiting to burst, in my opinion. Therefore I won’t be adding the shares to my portfolio. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “I felt sick. I couldn’t see how I’d be able to play rugby again.”THE WORST moment for Dave Attwood over these past few months wasn’t when he heard he had received a nine-week ban for stamping on the head of La Rochelle prop Petrisor Toderasc, a ban that cost him a place in England’s elite squad.That may seem bad enough for a 23-year-old lock who impressed the England management last summer on tour in Australia, made his Test debut against New Zealand in November and may well have been starting in the Six Nations with Courtney Lawes injured.But it pales into insignificance compared to hearing that the Romanian prop not only required hospital treatment after losing two teeth and fracturing a cheekbone but, for a short while, was in danger of losing the sight in his damaged eye. Suddenly rugby itself became worthless. “I felt totally sick when I was told it could happen,” Attwood reveals. “A million things went through my mind but the main thought, apart from praying Petrisor would be okay, was that I couldn’t see how I’d be able to play rugby again. I wanted to disappear. I couldn’t understand how I’d done it. I was full of remorse.”Attwood had been cited after stamping on the prop during an Amlin Challenge Cup tie in December. “I’d offloaded to Nick Wood and was about to support him, an area of play I’ve been working hard on, but Petrisor held me back off the ball and for a split-second I lost it.”As Toderasc was removed from the field and taken to hospital, Attwood apologised to him and, later, to his angry team-mates. “When I saw the damage I’d done my first thought was how on earth it could have happened, and then horror at my actions. That’s why I was at pains to say sorry to him, and why subsequently I also contacted the club. Everyone in the game knows I’m not a dirty player. Or at least knew.”He was also cited for stamping when playing for England against the Australian Barbarians last June. He was exonerated on a technicality but it remains a black mark against him. “The problem was I never had the chance to clear myself properly in a hearing, which we were all confident I’d be able to do. So, even though I was found not guilty, it’s there, isn’t it?”There was no doubt about this offence. Attwood pleaded guilty and was hit hard by ERC, then Martin Johnson threw him out of the elite squad as there was little point including a man who would be banned for the first two Six Nations Tests and not match-fit for a third. “It’s been difficult being a fit, professional sportsman stopped from doing what he loves the most and is paid to do. To be entirely responsible for missing games is very frustrating. With Courtney out for the Six Nations, I’d have had a good chance of featuring. I only have myself to blame. I haven’t done myself any favours in World Cup year.”At home with girlfriend Bridget Whelan, there’s little respite. “She’s been supportive but has also been on my back, and rightly so. When I faced the possibility I might have blinded a fellow player I found it difficult even thinking about telling her. We’ve talked about why I did it, what I was going to do. In fact, she hardly shuts up about it, which is how it should be. It’s not something I can just brush under the carpet.” Do you want to buy the issue of Rugby World in which this article appeared?

If so click here. TAGS: Bath RugbyGloucester Quite. To be fair to Attwood he’s hard at work addressing the issue to ensure there is no repeat. “Look, I’m fully aware that I’m in danger of gaining myself an unwanted reputation that’ll lead to refs looking at me, and opposing players testing me. I have to work very hard now on guaranteeing to the rugby world, and to myself, that I never repeat such actions. I never meant to hurt Petrisor. It wasn’t premeditated. It was a split-second reaction and the key now is to prepare for such eventualities, and to learn how to alter my reaction to provocation.“I’ve been talking to Carl Hogg, the Gloucester forwards coach who does a lot of psychology, and spending time with sports psychologists I know from my Bristol University days. I’m hoping that the thought of blinding someone, let alone the punishment meted out, is enough to ensure it never happens again, but I’m not leaving it to chance.”There is one positive. Attwood has had a mid-season, nine-week break which should ensure he’s now fresh, injury-free, fit and strong as the World Cup looms. And the fact that he was still asked to train with England in their pre-Six Nations camp in Portugal suggests that Johnson hasn’t exactly exiled the lock, either.“I have to make the most of the situation I find myself in,” Attwood admits. “That means returning to the game fresh and hungry. It’s been a long year, what with the summer tour, and if I can still make it into the World Cup squad it will continue to be a long year, so this might do me a favour long term. I’m hoping I might still get some kind of opportunity in the Six Nations but we’ll have to see.”Attwood also made the news by signing for Bath on a two-year deal – “There are amazing things going on there and it’s a great chance to develop the brand of rugby I can play” – but first he must do right by Gloucester and England. “Right now I’m happy Petrisor’s okay and that I’m working hard to improve myself. I know I’ve ground to catch up in every department but that’s exactly what I intend to do.”This article appeared in the April 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazinelast_img read more

first_img“The focus is now on confirming the licenses for New Zealand’s five current Super Rugby clubs and that work is now underway.“As well, there is a huge desire to have a Pasifika team involved which we think will be massive for the competition, popular with fans and is a priority for us. As we know, our Pacific nations and Pasifika players in New Zealand have added so much to the rich history of rugby in Oceania and our game here in New Zealand. To have a team that would provide an additional pathway for Pasifika players to perform on the world stage would be hugely exciting.“We will also be working with Rugby Australia to seek expressions of interest from their current Super clubs and other interested parties to join the competition and that work will begin in earnest.”The next step is setting out criteria for those teams who want to make an expression of interest in joining the new competition.Return: Western Force are playing in the Super Rugby AU competition (Getty Images)Yet there are many questions still remaining. What about existing SANZAAR contracts? Could Western Force get a place in the new competition ahead of one of Australia’s current Super Rugby franchises – Brumbies, Rebels, Reds and Waratahs?If South Africa grow their involvement in the Pro14, what teams will play in the league and will they also join the European competitions? Where does this leave Argentina, whose Jaguares side were in the Super Rugby final 12 months ago?And what about Japan – will they want to have a pro side playing in one of these competitions or will they focus on launching a new league themselves?Many of those questions will need to be answered before a new competition format can be confirmed. New Super Rugby competition on the cardsNew Zealand Rugby has revealed plans to launch a new competition in 2021 – and it doesn’t include South African teams.NZR’s Aratipu review looked at a future model for Super Rugby and the aim is to establish a new competition from next year featuring eight to ten teams.Those teams would include the five New Zealand franchises – Blues, Chiefs, Crusaders, Highlanders and Hurricanes – a Pasifika team and Australian sides, with the union looking for ‘expressions of interest’ from across the Tasman.There has long been talk of Super Rugby, which involves sides from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and more recently Argentina and Japan, being restructured given the amount of travel involved as well as the complexity of the modern conference format. The Covid-19 crisis has expedited that process, particularly given the travel restrictions in place across the globe.This latest move increases the likelihood of rugby competitions moving towards time zones rather than hemispheres, with the prospect of more or different South African sides joining the Guinness Pro14 already being mooted.Due North: Will SA sides the Sharks and Bulls be playing in the Pro14 next year? (Getty Images)That scenario certainly makes more sense than the traditional Super Rugby model given the strain on players of so much long-haul travel as well as the financial implications – and that’s before you consider the impact of all those flights on climate change.The New Zealand-only Super Rugby Aotearoa tournament has already attracted large crowds while including a Pacific Islands team in a new format would be popular with fans as well as benefit those national teams.The Mercury Group, which has secured a Major League Rugby licence for its Kanaloa Hawaii team from next year, is already in discussions with NZR about bidding for a place in the new competition.Related: Professional rugby reaches HawaiiNZR chief executive Mark Robinson said: “Coming on the back of Covid-19 and its impact on future competitions, the NZR Board has committed to establishing a new professional team competition in 2021. We have also been heartened by the success of Investec Super Rugby Aotearoa.

I shall never forget having seen “At the River I Stand,” which presented the events and aspects of the sanitation workers’ strike that I had known. I admire and applaud Ms. Jones for having been at the forefront of this and other movements to achieve equality for all Memphians.

It was a very conservative congregation in those days, in a very conservative city. I was the “young Turk” brought on staff, I suppose, to help give the younger and more liberal members a clerical voice. In retrospect, then Rector C. Brinkley Morton (later Bishop of San Diego) showed both wisdom and courage in allowing me both to preach and to lead our young adults in interracial dialogues and work projects in the Hyde Park/North Hollywood area of East Memphis. Goodness, that former Mississippi state legislator had been brave enough just to hire a young assistant who had marched with Dr. King in Selma. I will always be grateful to him and proud of all that Happy has accomplished over the years in the service to God and humanity.

And the ripples of a life well-lived move out in widening circles…. For a decade and a half, here in Washington, DC, at the Potter’s House, a small church coffeehouse that has tried to bridge the racial and economic divide for 52 years, Happy’s daughter, Meade Jones Hanna, gives her own passionate service. I am grateful for the model of a dedicated woman who gives herself to causes beyond herself…while also raising up the next generation to go and do likewise.

It was like my birthday present to myself.”She joined the Republican Party.“That was when it was the party of Lincoln, my dear, and it was mostly made up in the South of black folks,” she said. “The deal was that blacks and whites would vote for Republican national candidates, but blacks locally had to vote for the Democratic local people.”Under the Memphis political machine of Edward Hull “Boss” Crump, she said, “they used to take prisoners, put them on a bus and take them around to the polls and vote all the dead people. This basically only happened in black precincts. They would vote for who they were told to vote for.”“There was a group of white Republicans who wanted to break that machine up,” said Jones. “Basically, we established a two-party system.”Her involvement in the civil rights movement began after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot at the Lorraine Motel in 1968 while visiting Memphis to support striking African-American sanitation workers there.“Right after Dr. King was assassinated, we were all pretty shook up down here,” she recalled. One day, she invited herself to lunch with someone from Republican headquarters who was meeting Jocelyn Wurzburg, a Jewish woman trying to establish a local chapter of the Panel of American Women, which raised awareness of prejudice, racism and discrimination.Jones joined the effort. Integrated panels of women – Jewish, Catholic, African-American and white Protestant – spoke at PTAs, churches and civic groups “all over town.”“The deal was to speak about prejudice and how harmful it was,” she explained. “We were very well-received in most places.”The Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in 1968, is now part of the National Civil Rights Museum.Of course, there was the time she was sitting beside a man on an Atlanta-bound airplane. Asked what she did, Jones told him she made speeches about “what a great country this is and what a wonderful thing democracy is.”The man was chair of the Bluff City Council of Civic Clubs. He thought the Panel of American Women sounded patriotic and invited them to speak.The council, Jones said, “was the closest thing to the White Citizen’ Council that you’ve got in Memphis. I knew that.”“We were not well-received, but it was fun. The worst thing was the sheriff’s deputies sitting in the back making nasty remarks. They were not polite, especially when they saw the African-American woman come in with us.”Very often when members of the panel spoke, she said, “people in the audience had never seen a black and a white woman engaging with each other as equals and being more or less middle class and articulate and the whole schmear.” While they might not have influenced the Bluff City council, she said, “I think it made a difference in other organizations.”Meanwhile, Memphis’ sanitation workers were preparing to strike again because the city would not recognize the union. Jones and Wurzburg organized a bus ride so people could see how the workers lived. So many people showed up, they had to order a second bus.Most of the riders were “white, Republican and concerned” women, Jones said. “They didn’t want to see the city get into the mess that it had been the year before” when King was killed.The day after the tour, the women visited city hall to see the mayor and council. “I kind of ended up as the spokesperson for it,” Jones said. “What we did was redefine the issue. We said: This is not just a union-management issue. This is an issue about hunger and poverty and racism.”“You know what? They listened. They listened real hard. The union got recognized almost immediately, and we didn’t have another strike.”But not everyone was pleased. Their telephones “rang off the hook with nasty phone calls,” Jones said. “I couldn’t let my children answer the phone, it was that bad. … It was right after that the Republican Party kicked my butt out, at least as an officer.” (She’s now a Democrat.)Next, they tackled the Memphis school board’s policy of not applying for federal funding for free lunches for needy school children. “They didn’t want the federal government messing in their business. That was their reasoning,” she said.Before the next school board vote, she visited all the local black schools, located “in pretty lousy neighborhoods,” and recorded who could and could not afford to eat lunch. “The rule was, if you couldn’t eat, you still had to go sit in the cafeteria. Now, could you believe that?”She gathered a group of women to accompany her to the next board meeting, where she presented her findings. “I just told them it was cruel what they were doing, and there was no reason on earth not to have free lunches in these schools. They voted right then, and that day they got free lunches.”That prompted another phone call when she arrived home, this time from her ultraconservative father. “He had not liked what I had been doing over the past year, to say the least,” she said. “I’d been all over the 5 o’clock news. He said, ‘You know, I’ll never understand what you’re doing or why you’re doing it, but you’re certainly doing it well.’ That was quite a compliment from him.”Reflecting on these successes, she said, “We had some power. In 1968, I had been named by the local newspaper, The Commercial Appeal, as one of the 20 most-influential political figures in the county. That gives you a little power.”When confronted by a group of white, Republican women, local politicians “just couldn’t ignore that,” she said. “Hell, these were the people that put them in office. … Plus it was shocking. Women in my class were not supposed to be doing that. We were supposed to be going to junior league meetings. That’s about it.”It would have been different had they been black or lower-class whites, she said.Over the years, Jones’ activism continued on various policy issues, including domestic violence, and she worked as a certified marriage and family therapist and social worker. At her Memphis Episcopal church, Grace-St. Luke’s, she works at the food bank. In 2009, she was among six women to receive the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis Legends Award for her community activism.Reflecting on race relations in Memphis, she sees progress and cause for concern. The mostly black city’s schools are being consolidated with the county’s mostly white school system, and “the county people are not liking this at all,” she said. “Tensions are fairly high right now.”“We’ve still got the racial divide,” she said. “But … we’ve got a pretty established black middle class, and most neighborhoods that were formerly all white are integrated, to some degree. I live in probably the best neighborhood in the city, I think, and it’s integrated now. It’s not 50 percent or anything. Maybe 25 percent. That’s a big step.”—Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.En español: http://bit.ly/xDSzdn TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab April 14, 2012 at 8:34 pm Congratulations to Happy and her congregation for years of advocacy and showing up to do the right thing.

Blessings for all you have done and continued good work, Happy! Thanks, Meade & Happy, for being an example of Jesus in small and large acts of grace and prophetic advocacy. February 20, 2012 at 6:16 pm I became an Episcopalian during the civil rights movement because of the powerful witness of the Episcopal Society for Racial and Cultural Unity, ESCRU; was in a discernment process to see if I were called to be a priest, and instead, began writing about my days as a Freedom Rider and civil rights activist.

En la última semana el sacerdote católico romano José Mejía, de 84 años, fue asesinado en el departamento de Caldas. Dos sacerdotes más corrieron la misma suerte, uno en el Valle del Cauca y otro en Ocaña, Norte de Santander. El obispo Rubén Salazar, presidente de la Conferencia Episcopal de Colombia ha dicho que 83 sacerdotes, cinco religiosas (monjas), tres religiosos, tres seminaristas, un arzobispo y un obispo han sido asesinados en Colombia desde 1984. Un breve repaso por el internet revela que en el mismo período 13 pastores evangélicos han perdido la vida en circunstancias similares.El  gobierno cubano ha decidido devolver a la diócesis católica romana de Bayamo-Manzanillo, el antiguo local del colegio la Divina Pastora, una capilla y dos terrenos. Además, prometió dar permiso para construir una capilla en el poblado de Río Cauto. Estas propiedades fueron confiscadas por el gobierno en 1961 junto con las pertenecientes a las otras iglesias. Según el arzobispado de La Habana en el país hay  “unos 650 templos, 340 sacerdotes y unas 600 religiosas”.El cardenal Rainer María Woelki, arzobispo de Berlín, ha anunciado que para el año 2020 las 105 parroquias en su diócesis se reducirán en un 70 por ciento decisión que afectará a unos 400 mil fieles. El año pasado el arzobispo de Viena, cardenal Christoph Schönborn, hizo un anuncio similar al decir que sus 660 parroquias se reducirán a 150 en los próximos años. Observadores piensan que el secularismo europeo y la falta de clero son responsables en parte por la disminución de iglesias.Sonia Sotomayor, una mujer de origen puertorriqueño de 59 años es la única hispana en la Corte Suprema de Justicia de Estados Unidos. En su nuevo libro, Mi mundo adorado, revela historias de su vida que la hacen una ciudadana extraordinaria y común al mismo tiempo. Se crió en el Bronx una zona pobre de Nueva York, su padre murió cuando tenía ocho años, es diabética, come comida típica latina, se siente orgullosa de sus tradiciones, estuvo casada por siete años, decidió no tener hijos y nunca se dejó discriminar. Ella es un ejemplo que “Sí, se puede”, dicen los que simpatizan con ella y los que no también.En un informe sobre su trabajo, el presidente colombiano Juan Manuel Santos dijo que pedía a Dios que no perdiera la humildad para ser un buen gobernante y que el poder “nunca se me suba a la cabeza”. Añadió que siempre ha estado consciente de que  “el poder político es efímero”. Varios de sus colegas latinoamericanos no piensa así.La portavoz del gobierno francés, Najat Belkacem, ha reiterado la “total determinación” del gobierno de llevar adelante el matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo, a pesar de la fuerte oposición que registra. Una manifestación multitudinaria en la plaza de la Torre de  Eiffel pidió que siga la tradición milenaria de definir el matrimonio como “la unión de un hombre y una mujer”.El mítico alcalde de Nueva York, Ed Koch, ha muerto a la edad de 88 años y ha sido enterrado en el Cementerio de la Iglesia Episcopal de la Trinidad en la calle 155 y Riverside en Manhattan. Koch dijo poco antes de morir que aunque era un judío secular quería que sus restos descansaran en un cementerio episcopal.Para crecer en la fe durante el 2013, los obispos católicos romanos de Cuba “recomiendan cuidar la luz recibida en el bautismo, leer asiduamente la Biblia y meditarla, participar cada domingo en la Misa de la Iglesia Católica más cercana, orar en casa y con la familia, hablar de Dios con amigos y parientes y enseñar a orar a los niños y jóvenes”.Elisabeth von Trapp, una de los 29 nietos de María y el Barón von Trapp, una pareja austríaca dedicadas a la música desde niños, nació y se crió en Vermont, Estados Unidos, ahora tiene 28 años  y emplea gran parte de su tiempo viajando y cantando en salas de conciertos e iglesias. Su historia inspiró la famosa película La Novicia Rebelde (1964) que aún goza de popularidad. Elisabeth interpreta con su guitarra música clásica, cristiana y popular.  Se ha presentado en muchas iglesias episcopales. No cobra por su actuación sólo pide que se tome una ofrenda con la cual se pagan sus gastos. Ya tiene lleno su horario para este año.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Comments are closed. Matthew P. Payne has been selected to serve as Director of Operations of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC). Payne is Lay Canon for Administration for the Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac and will be responsible for membership management, subscription management of Anglican and Episcopal History, the Society’s Quarterly Journal, financial and corporate responsibilities, meeting planning and information technology management. He continues in his position with the diocese.For over a century HSEC has been an association dedicated to preserving and disseminating information about the history of the Episcopal Church. Founded in Philadelphia in 1910 as the Church Historical Society, its members include scholars, writers, teachers, ministers (lay and ordained) and many others who have an interest in the objectives and activities of the Historical Society.“I look forward to managing the administration of HSEC activities” Payne shared with the search committee. “My goal is for the necessities of operations to function quietly, behind the scenes so the important work of the Society is front and center.”Over the next month Payne is working to enable a smooth transition with Susan Johnson, who is retiring from the position the end of February.Payne was selected following a search chaired by HSEC President the Rev. Dr. Robert W. Prichard. The Search Team interviewed multiple candidates before making the selection of Payne. Prichard commented, “The Historical Society has been well served in the past by those talented individuals who been our administrators and directors of operations. We give thanks for the work of Susan Johnson. We were impressed by the talents and experience of all of those whom we interviewed and, and look forward to working with Matthew Payne.”The change in Director of Operations will result in a new address of 82 Cherry Court, Appleton, Wisconsin 54915. The email address ([email protected]), toll-free phone (866-989-5851) and website (hsec.us) remain the same.

El río, que alguna vez fuera una fuente de agua limpia a través de Tierra Santa, se ha contaminado por el derrame de aguas negras sin tratar y la sequía durante los últimos 50 años.EcoPeace Middle East reúne a israelíes, jordanos y palestinos en el bajo Jordán para el “Gran Salto”, un evento para crear conciencia de los empeños en pro de la restauración del río. Foto de EcoPeace Middle East.“Nos juntamos y usamos el medioambiente como una plataforma para la edificación de la paz”, dijo Koch-Ya’ari a Episcopal News Service luego de una presentación en Tel Aviv en enero, cuando ella se reunió con una delegación interreligiosa de Estados Unidos que visitaba la región en peregrinación.“Es una asombrosa oportunidad para adentrarnos en la comprensión de estas diferentes comunidades limítrofes, que comparten los mismos recursos hidráulicos, que comparten el mismo medioambiente”, afirmó. “En esta zona del mundo, el agua puede juntarnos, porque el agua no ve todos estos muros y fronteras que hemos puesto entre unos y otros”.El río Jordán tiene una gran significación para el judaísmo, el cristianismo y el islam, por ser el sitio donde los israelitas entraron en la Tierra Prometida, donde Juan el Bautista bautizó a Jesús y donde el profeta Mahoma pronosticó un evento que sucedería años más tarde.EcoPeace ha creado un repertorio de materiales para comunidades judías, cristianas y musulmanas, llamado Agua y ecología en el río Jordán, al objeto de alentar la instrucción de carácter religioso y el compromiso en torno al problema del agua.“La realidad es que muchas personas que viven a lo largo del río Jordán no experimentan sus beneficios. En muchas partes su corriente está sucia, contaminada [y] desaparece en las estaciones secas del año”, dijo a ENS la obispa primada de la Iglesia Episcopal Katharine Jefferts Schori, una de las colíderes de la peregrinación, al tiempo de visitar el Sitio Bautismal de Yardenit, junto al río Jordán, en la región de Galilea, en el norte de Israel.“La labor del instituto EcoPeace es reunir a personas de ambas márgenes del río, de diferentes tradiciones religiosas en comunidades vecinas, para abogar y trabajar en pro del mejoramiento de la situación del agua, para entender las necesidades mutuas, y para que lleguen a entenderse unos a otros como amigos al hacer esa obra”, dijo ella. “Ciertamente es una obra de pacificación”.El Rdo. John Kitagawa, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Felipe de las Colinas [St. Philip’s in-the-Hills] en Tucson, Arizona, y participante de la peregrinación, dijo que la desaparición del río Jordán sería trágica. No sólo significa mucho para las vidas de las personas en ambas márgenes del río Jordán, subrayó, sino que “es profundamente importante para nuestra fe. No es posible leer las Escrituras sin encontrar toda clase de referencias al río Jordán”.Kitagawa dijo que hay muchísimas [situaciones] paralelas en Estados Unidos, donde abundan los problemas de agua.“Yo vivo en el desierto del sur de Arizona. Nuestros manantiales subterráneos están básicamente exhaustos. Tenemos que importar agua del río Colorado, de manera que la misma substancia de la vida está en peligro”, dijo. “Pero no es sólo aquellos de nosotros que vivimos en el desierto. Estoy viendo cada vez más a personas que tienen que lidiar con problemas de fracturación hidráulica en sus zonas y cómo esto afecta las aguas subterráneas. La explotación del carbón y otras formas de minería tienen mucho que ver con la contaminación del agua, y los granjeros están enfrentándose con crecientes problemas de sequía debido al calentamiento global. El agua es un tema constante en torno nuestro. Tenemos muchísimo en común y sólo necesitamos resolver cómo entender nuestras raíces comunes, y una de esas raíces comunes es nuestra responsabilidad como mayordomos de la creación de Dios”.“Las comunidades a través de esta región comparten muchas cosas”, dijo Koch-Ya’ari refiriéndose a Tierra Santa. “El agua es una parte fundamental de la vida y al juntarnos para rehabilitar las corrientes de agua que compartimos, como es la parte baja del río Jordán, ganamos muchísimo, no sólo en beneficio del medio ambiente, sino también para aprender los unos de los otros, acerca de nuestras diferentes comunidades de fe y acerca de cómo podemos ayudarnos mutuamente [y] a nuestros ecosistemas compartidos”.Koch-Ya’ari es una de una serie de líderes de iniciativas de base en Tierra Santa con quienes la delegación interreligiosa de EE.UU. se reunió durante su peregrinación del 18 al 27 de enero.Ella y otros líderes de base están seguros de que iniciativas de este tipo serán fundamentales para crear confianza y romper las barreras, lo cual garantizará una paz duradera en la región mucho después de que los políticos lleguen a cualquier clase de acuerdo. Sin embargo, las probabilidades de una reanudación de las negociaciones entre israelíes y palestinos parecen complicadas, en el mejor de los casos, después de un año que ha sido testigo del colapso de las conversaciones de paz mediadas por el secretario de Estado de EE.UU. John Kerry, una guerra devastadora entre Israel y el movimiento palestino Hamás en la Franja de Gaza, y una serie de acciones y declaraciones de parte de los líderes israelíes y palestinos que tanto reflejan como contribuyen a un clima que causa divisiones.El primer ministro israelí Benjamin Netanyahu, cuyo Partido Likud resultó vencedor en las elecciones parlamentarias del pasado martes, dio el último ejemplo de una retórica políticamente cargada esta semana, al declarar, el día antes de las elecciones, que no habría ningún Estado palestino bajo su liderazgo. Anteriormente, Netanyahu había apoyado consecuentemente una solución con dos estados, incluida en el contexto de negociaciones con los palestinos. No resulta claro lo que podría significar la declaración del Primer Ministro esta semana, en el contexto de unas elecciones polémicas y sorprendentemente reñidas, para el futuro del proceso de paz para las propias relaciones de Netanyahu con decisivos partidarios internacionales de una solución con dos estados, incluido el gobierno de Estados Unidos.Lior Frankiensztajn, del Programa de Negociación Shades, le habla a miembros de la peregrinación interreligiosa de EE.UU. que visitaron Tierra Santa en enero. Foto de Matthew Davies/ENSVolviendo a enero, el grupo interreligioso oyó el testimonio de cómo el mundo de Lior Frankiensztajn cambió hace unos cuantos años luego de que recibiera en su casa a un palestino durante dos meses. Él logró aprender muchas cosas acerca de sí mismo y de sus raíces, pero lo más importante, vio “como la realidad se contempla desde una perspectiva diferente”, le dijo a los peregrinos interreligiosos luego de un almuerzo en un restaurante en Tel Aviv. Desafortunadamente, “los políticos manejan las relaciones, lo cual limita las oportunidades para el progreso… Debe haber un enfoque distinto para el diseño de políticas, para la educación”.Fue esta manera de pensar la que llevó a Frankiensztajn a lanzar el Programa de Negociación Shades, que crea oportunidades de que políticos, educadores y otros líderes palestinos e israelíes se reúnan y compartan con sus homólogos. El programa está auspiciado por la Universidad de Harvard y es financiado en parte por el Departamento de Estado de EE.UU.Reconociendo que es fácil captar a los conversos, Frankiensztajn dijo que Shades intenta identificar los obstáculos, las áreas que requieren mayor atención en ayudar a la gente “a convertirse en mejores negociadores, mejores comunicadores mediante esta experiencia [y] realmente lograr entender los matices y la cultura de la otra parte”. Crear confianza, añadió él, es una parte fundamental del proceso de paz.Azhar Azeez, presidente de la Sociedad Islámica de América del Norte y miembro de la peregrinación, respondió a la presentación de Frankiensztajn con aliento y felicitaciones por sus esfuerzos a favor de la paz. “Puedo ver cómo este empeño traerá un cambio positivo y una esperanza”, dijo.La peregrinación interreligiosa de 15 miembros fue codirigida por Jefferts Schori; el rabino Steve Gutow, presidente del Consejo Judío para las Relaciones Públicas; y Sayyid Syeed, director nacional de alianzas interreligiosas y comunitarias de la Sociedad Islámica de América del Norte.La visita se planeó en respuesta a la Resolución B019, aprobada por la Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal de 2012, que pidió una inversión positiva y un compromiso con la región y que recomendó que la Obispa Primada organizara una peregrinación interreligiosa modelo con múltiples narrativas. Esa resolución reiteraba el antiguo compromiso de la Iglesia Episcopal con una solución negociada de dos estados, en la cual un seguro y universalmente reconocido Estado de Israel coexista con un Estado, libre, viable y seguro, para el pueblo palestino”.“Sólo cuando las personas en el terreno alcen su voz y digan ‘basta ya’, la posibilidad de la paz y la justicia irrumpirán en la problemática relación entre los palestinos y los israelíes” dijo Gutow. “Cuando nos reunimos con grupos como Shades, Roots y EcoPeace, sabemos que la trayectoria a la resolución y la reconciliación no es sólo posible, sino que es eminentemente factible”.La obispa primada de la Iglesia Episcopal Katharine Jefferts Schori y el rabino Hanan Schlesinger se saludan al tiempo que los miembros de la peregrinación interreligiosa llegan a Gush Etzion para saber más acerca de la labor de Roots. Foto de Matthew Davies/ENS.La agrupación Raíces [Roots] reúne a colonos israelíes en Bush Etzion con palestinos de las aldeas cercanas para promover el diálogo y cimentar la confianza como una senda hacia la paz. El liderazgo de Roots cree que es imperativo para las comunidades echar a un lado el atrincheramiento político, las acciones y la retórica divisionistas a fin de comenzar a sembrar las semillas necesarias para que se afiance un definitivo acuerdo de paz.El rabino Hanan Schlesinger dijo a los líderes interreligiosos que Roots ha transformado la manera que él tenía de ver el mundo.Hace un año, a invitación de un amigo, Schlesinger salió de su casa y caminó apenas 20 minutos a través de campos y viñedos árabes para llegar al pedazo de tierra donde los peregrinos interreligiosos se reunían ahora para escuchar su historia. Dijo que él corazón le latía apresuradamente cuando entró en el complejo donde aproximadamente 25 judíos y 25 palestinos conversaban.Schlesinger, coordinador en la actualidad de un proyecto de Roots, había crecido con temor de los palestinos que vivían cerca de su aldea.“No tenemos conexiones de ninguna clase con el otro lado. Los periódicos son diferentes, las estaciones de radio son diferentes, las casas de culto son diferentes, compramos en tiendas diferentes, tenemos diferentes sistemas de enseñanza. No tenemos ningún contacto en absoluto. Nos cruzamos en las carreteras y no sabemos quién conduce el auto”, dijo. “Cuando tienes esa situación de distancia, tienes miedo y tienes sospechas y tienes odio”.Pero a través de las conversaciones que él sostuvo durante esa reunión hace un año, llegó a entender que los palestinos que habían sido sus vecinos durante todos esos años también habían vivido con temor de él. “Nunca había pensado en eso antes. Nos temíamos mutuamente”, dijo. Por primera vez en su vida, contó Schlesinger, él le estaba hablando “al otro” como a un igual.De izquierda a derecha, los coordinadores del proyecto Roots, Ali Abu Awwad, el rabino Hanan Schlesinger y Shaul Judelman escuchan para responder a los miembros de la peregrinación interreligiosa de EE.UU. que visitaron Gush Etzion en enero. Foto de Matthew Davies/ENS.El palestino Ali Abu Awwad, un cofundador de Roots, estaba en la reunión y compartió la historia de su vida con el grupo. “Era la primera vez en mi vida que yo oía [un testimonio de] la vida desde una perspectiva palestina, y él habló sin rencor, sin odio, y hablamos acerca de su vida”, dijo Schlesinger. “Era realmente difícil escuchar y sentía que estaba siendo atacado personalmente al oír una narrativa tan diferente a la mía. Pero, por diferente que fuera de mi narrativa, no era falsa. Yo no oí mentiras. Oí que él estaba tomando los bloques de historia y de la vida como yo los conozco y ordenándolos en un relato completamente diferente, pero su historia tenía sentido. Y ahora yo me veo en la historia de Ali. Y aunque él no lo dijo, en su historia yo me veo como el opresor. Eso inició un proceso de reconsideración.Awwad, que se crió en una familia muy politizada y que cumplió condena como preso político, dijo que hay muchos diseñadores de conflicto en ambas partes y que “somos buenos en esta competencia de quien sufre más… Pero cuando se trata de soluciones, perdemos el valor, porque actuamos como víctimas. Las víctimas nunca serán capaces de resolver sus propios conflictos si son los prisioneros de su dolor… El precio de esta guerra ha llegado a ser más fácil que el precio de la paz. Debemos encontrar un medio donde la gente pueda servir a Dios y no perder su humanidad. Juntos podemos marcar la diferencia”.Shaul Judelman, un coordinador del proyecto Raíces que ha vivido en Gush Etzion durante los últimos 13 años, dijo: “sabemos que hay un gran desacuerdo en muchos asuntos —acerca de los hechos del pasado e incluso acerca de la realidad del presente— pero creemos que el diálogo efectivo es el lugar seguro para el debate y para una comprensión más profunda. Es en este espacio que pueden construirse las soluciones”.Gutow dijo que Raíces “nos enseña… que los políticos tradicionales oprimen los sueños intrínsecos de las personas de carne y hueso que viven en la tierra.“Debemos apoyar a los que pueden comprender y hablar con integridad sobre las discrepantes narrativas de las personas normales que levantan sus hogares aquí”, añadió Gutow. “Debemos proporcionarles las plataformas y la ayuda económica y la validez que necesitan para tener éxito. La labor de nuestra peregrinación es servir como testigos interreligiosos de las verdades de ambas partes y ayudar a las personas buenas y nobles que habitan allí a encontrar la paz y la integridad y la calma que tanto desean y tanto merecen”.Reflexionando sobre la peregrinación, Jefferts Schori dijo a Episcopal News Service que “los tipos de empeños pacificadores de base que hemos visto en la Tierra del Bendito se centran, todos ellos, en la creación de relaciones [No obstante] la triste realidad es que palestinos e israelíes viven vidas casi completamente separadas. La mayoría nunca se encuentra en tiendas de víveres, en escuelas o en la vida cívica… Ese encuentro humano es esencial para humanizar ‘al otro’. Las tradiciones de la fe abrahámica hablan de encontrar la imagen de Dios, la divina capacidad creadora que es parte de nuestra naturaleza”.Ella afirmó que se sentía estimulada por “la voluntad de pasar por encima de fronteras, de divisiones físicas, así como de sospechas, dudas y temores” y lo definió como “el terreno en el cual la paz comienza a brotar… El ensuciarse las manos juntos crea vínculos que son más profundos que nuestros prejuicios conscientes. Los vínculos nacidos del trabajo compartido perdurarán, e invitarán a otros a venir y ver, a ser un poquito vulnerables, a fin de ver que la recuperación podría ser posible”.— Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Washington, D.C.] “O aprendemos a vivir juntos… o pereceremos juntos como tontos”, así comenzó diciendo el obispo primado Michael Curry al dirigirse a los miembros e invitados del Club Nacional de la Prensa  [National Press Club] el 8 de febrero.Las palabras, dichas por el Rdo. Martin Luther King Jr. durante un discurso pronunciado en  San Luis, Misurí, en 1964, sirven como cita definitoria para el siglo XXI, dijo Curry.“La opción es nuestra: ‘caos o comunidad’”, dijo Curry, haciéndose eco del título del cuarto y último libro de King: Adónde vamos: caos o comunidad  [Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community] publicado en 1967. En el libro, dijo Curry, era obvio que King luchaba por el futuro del movimiento de los derechos civiles y por la manera de conducir una nación —que potencialmente se desmembraba— durante un tiempo de conflicto racial —y de clase— y de la guerra de Vietnam.Partiendo del tema “el papel de la Iglesia en la creación de una sociedad más inclusiva”, Curry compartió sus comentarios con más de 30 personas reunidas en el salón Edward R. Murrow de la sede del club: una organización profesional de periodistas y profesionales de la comunicación con más de 3.500 miembros.Curry habló como parte de la serie regular del club Newsmaker, conferencias de prensa de una hora de duración, en las cuales congresistas, funcionarios del gobierno, politólogos e influyentes líderes de organizaciones se dirigen a los miembros del club y responden a preguntas de los medios de prensa. Katharine Jefferts Schori, la anterior Obispa Primada, habló ante el Club de la Prensa en 2008.La invitación a hablar de Curry se produjo por recomendación de Susan Hahn, miembro del Club de la Prensa y de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo [Christ Church] de las inmediaciones de Alexandria, Virginia. Hahn asistió al evento junto con otros episcopales, entre ellos  la Rvdma. Mariann Edgar Budde, obispa de la Diócesis de Washington, y el Rvdmo. Gene Robinson, obispo jubilado de la Diócesis de Nuevo Hampshire.El 7 de febrero, Curry predicó en la Catedral Nacional de Washington durante una eucaristía vespertina en conmemoración de Absalom Jones, el primer afroamericano en ser ordenado sacerdote episcopal.Curry le expresó a los reunidos en el Club de la Prensa que estaba sorprendido por su elección como el primer Obispo Presidente y Primado afroamericano de la Iglesia Episcopal durante la Convención General de junio pasado.Dijo que su elección, sin embargo, no era la única sorpresa, y citó las dos prioridades de la misión de la Iglesia Episcopal, evangelización y reconciliación racial, adoptadas por esa misma Convención.“Evangelización y episcopal” son dos palabras que rara vez se oyen juntas, afirmó Curry, añadiendo que “por primera vez se  situó la evangelización al frente y al centro de la Iglesia Episcopal” que ha contraído un serio compromiso de volver a la labor de reconciliación racial desde fines de los años sesenta cuando John E. Hines era el obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal.“Estos fueron dos decisiones valientes, y no creo que ninguno de nosotros realmente las vimos venir”, afirmó. “Sospecho que cuando uno no ve venir algo como eso bien puede ser una señal de que alguna otra variable participa de la ecuación, lo cual significa que el Espíritu Santo ha estado experimentando con nosotros…“Salimos de esa convención con el compromiso de la Iglesia Episcopal con lo que yo llamo el Movimiento de Jesús y con un compromiso a seguir en el camino de Jesús de Nazaret, sin saber exactamente cómo todo esto va a funcionar, pero siguiendo el camino de Jesús de Nazaret que es el camino del amor de Dios en este mundo. Y hacer esto por medio de la evangelización y de una manera que conduzca a la reconciliación racial en nuestra sociedad y en el mundo”.Curry dijo estar convencido de que el llamado de King al siglo XXI “a aprender a vivir juntos como hermanos y hermanas,  está vinculado a la verdad de este Movimiento de Jesús y a la obra de la evangelización y la reconciliación racial”.Tal como el rabino británico Jonathan Sacks señala en su libro No en nombre de Dios [Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence], el extremismo religioso está teniendo lugar en el judaísmo, el cristianismo y el islam, y las voces más moderadas y centristas están ausentes de la conversación. Y Occidente se ha alejando en gran medida de sus anteriores valores judeocristianos, para volverse a los ídolos del interés personal: el mercado, el consumismo y el individualismo.“El becerro de oro del ego ha vuelto a ser levantado por los hijos de Israel en el desierto”, dijo Curry en apoyo de la tesis de Sacks. “Ese becerro de oro, ese ídolo del ego, puede bien ser la realidad más destructiva de la sociedad humana. egocentrismo, egoísmo, llámenlo como quieran, es francamente un cáncer que puede destruirnos a todos y, si no se controla, destruirá al planeta”.Curry dijo sentirse alentado por el papa Francisco, por su popularidad y sus acciones hacia la inclusión de todo el mundo; él está moldeando “una manera de ser que es exactamente lo contrario del egocentrismo y la autodestrucción y en eso se afirma la esperanza”.Jesús, dijo Curry, lo resumió todo, al decir claramente en Mateo 22, que la ley y los profetas dependen del amor a Dios y del amor al prójimo.“La religión tiene que ver de manera completa y total con el amor a Dios y el amor al prójimo, si no tiene que ver con el amor, no tiene que ver con Dios…”King, dijo Curry, entendió que el amor es la vía para crear una “amada comunidad”.“Si amo a Dios con todo mi corazón y con toda mi mente, no hay lugar para el egoísmo”, afirmó Curry.Por su parte, la Iglesia Episcopal al poner la evangelización y la reconciliación racial al frente y al centro busca intencionalmente la manera de llevar a cabo la tarea de amar a Dios y al prójimo tanto dentro como fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal.Curry habló de la evangelización y la reconciliación racial en el contexto del amor a Dios y del amor al prójimo como una senda para “la vida del mundo”.La evangelización no consiste en traer personas a la Iglesia Episcopal, sino en llevar a las personas a una “relación más profunda y duradera con Dios”.“La evangelización consiste en llevarnos de regreso a ese Dios y llevarnos de regreso al encuentro de unos con otros, y eso es la reconciliación, y cuando eso ocurra no permitimos que los niños se acuesten con hambre, cuando eso ocurra todos los niños tendrán la oportunidad de una educación excelente y accesible, cuando eso ocurra todo ser humano será un hijo de Dios y estará dotado por Dios de ciertos derechos inalienables a la vida, la libertad y la búsqueda de la felicidad, cuando eso ocurra depondremos nuestras espadas y nuestros escudos en la ribera y no nos prepararemos más para la guerra.“O aprendemos a vivir juntos como hermanos y hermanas… o pereceremos juntos como tontos. Pero yo no estoy en esta empresa porque crea que pereceremos. Estoy en esta empresa porque vamos a aprender a vivir juntos, y la Iglesia Episcopal va a contribuir a encabezar la marcha porque somos parte del Movimiento de Jesús”.— Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Photo: Episcopal Campus Ministry[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians in college towns all over the United States are recognizing that many students have to choose between tuition and books or food, and they are trying to help.Their ministries, often done in partnership with the schools and local food banks, range from startup to long-established. Many are growing to serve an increasing need. Some are exploring whether what they do is helping. The problem they address is growing and changing.Food insecurity among college students is often hidden, bolstered by the myth that students who get financial aid have enough money to cover all living expenses. Let Steph Johnson explain it from her vantage point at Grace Café, a part of Christ Episcopal Church, which is across the street from Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia.A sign on the wall at Grace Café says, “It’s not cheap … it’s free.” About 100 students fill the building on the Christ Episcopal Church campus and spill out onto the deck and another building for the Thursday meal. The cafe is open 8 a.m. to midnight for coffee, snacks and companionship. Photo courtesy of Steph Johnson“I didn’t realize until I got into this ministry how there are kids who, in order to go to college and get their books, they don’t have any food,” said Johnson.Food insecurity can be an ongoing issue for some students but only episodic for others, said the Rev. Doug Hale, who runs the Diocese of Oregon’s Episcopal Campus Ministry. Some students come every week, term after term, to the ministry’s Student Food Pantry, located in Eugene one block from the University of Oregon campus. Other students come and go as financial crises hit them or their families. There are also the inexperienced young people who sometimes make bad choices within campus food service systems and the accompanying meal plans, which “assume people make good choices,” he said.Plus, “there’s always that stigma” and sense of shame that hungry students impose on themselves, said the Rev. Kathleen Crowe, a Diocese of El Camino Real deacon at Canterbury Bridge Episcopal Campus Ministry at San Jose State University in San Jose, California. Bringing the need out into the open helps, she said. When Second Harvest Food Bank’s Just in Time mobile food pantry attracted between 500 to 600 people on the San Jose campus, students saw they weren’t the only ones in need, Crowe said.Schools with more commuter students find they have different types of hunger issues than schools with a more residential student body, according to the Rev. Eileen O’Brien, who until recently was part of Houston Canterbury, an Episcopal Church ministry serving students in the Texas city. Of the University of Houston’s 47,000 students, she said, only 8,000 live in student housing. Many undergrads are coming from nearby communities and may work and go to school full time. Some have families with “mixed documentation,” which raises issues about who can legally work, O’Brien said.The brand-new food pantry that St. Alban’s Episcopal Church organized for international students at the University of Texas in Arlington strives to offer culturally appropriate goods to the primarily Hindu and Muslim population. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceO’Brien and the Rev. Kevin Johnson, rector of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Arlington, Texas, both said international students have different needs and face different financial restrictions. At the University of Houston, international students often get no financial aid, and many of their families back home are making big sacrifices for them to be in school. Often, money from home goes toward tuition, not food, housing or clothing. In addition, F-1 student visas carry stringent restrictions on work, making it harder to make ends meet. A number of international students O’Brien knows work “under-the-radar” jobs, such as lawn care or car parking.Up at the University of Texas-Arlington where the international student population is mainly Hindu and Muslim, Johnson said, St. Alban’s budding ministry soon realized that it had to tailor its pantry offerings to the students it hoped to reach. The organizers researched foods and spices that are more specific to their diets, according to Doug Hunt, a vestry member. “We learned there’s different types of Hindu diets,” he said, adding that the international student organization advised the group on those choices.The causes of hunger on campus are manyThe Wisconsin Hope Lab said in 2015 that its survey of more than 4,000 undergraduates at 10 community colleges across the nation found that a “startling” 20 percent of students were hungry and 13 percent were homeless. In April 2018, the group said that, out of the 43,000 students it studied at 66 institutions in 20 states and the District of Columbia, 36 percent were food insecure in the 30 days preceding the survey.The group, now known as the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice, defines food insecurity as “the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods, or the ability to acquire such foods in a socially acceptable manner,” adding that “the most extreme form is often accompanied with physiological sensations of hunger.”While some students can get federal help via the Food and Nutrition Service’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, not all of them know that. The government’s General Accounting Office, or GAO, told Congress in December that many college students may not have enough to eat, but it found that of the 3.3 million students who were potentially eligible in 2016 for SNAP, commonly known as food stamps, less than half say they participated.They may have trouble accessing information about their eligibility. The GAO recommends that the Food and Nutrition Service improve student eligibility information on its website and share information on state SNAP agencies’ approaches to help eligible students.While some may think that hunger is a low-income problem, many students from both lower- and middle-income families who get financial aid struggle to pay for tuition, room and board, books, fees and other costs. Some who do not qualify for aid also struggle.All the while, college costs continue to rise. Between 2005-06 and 2015-16, prices for undergraduate tuition, fees, room and board at public institutions rose 34 percent, and prices at private nonprofit institutions rose 26 percent, after adjustment for inflation, the National Center for Education Statistics said last year.Episcopalians involved in food insecurity work also look for ways to focus attention on the systemic issues that cause it, often by partnering with college administrations. Crowe was invited to serve on a San Jose State committee to address hunger on campus. Hale is also involved with the University of Oregon’s efforts.Smokey’s Pantry volunteers (from left) Kathleen Spight, Haley Channell, Lauren Donnelly and Nelly Stepanov were ready Feb. 12 to serve University of Tennessee-Knoxville students at the food pantry run by the Lutheran-Episcopal campus ministry. Photo: Tyson HouseIt isn’t always easy, though, to get beyond the day-to-day needs. At the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, Rusty Graham, administrator of the Lutheran and Episcopal campus ministry known as Tyson House, which runs Smokey’s Pantry, said, “We’re very limited with the human power that we have that goes into the pantry.” Other groups on campus are trying to address the systemic issues, “but from our perspective, we have to limit our scope to solving the immediate problem.”Caitlynne Fox, Tyson House ministry coordinator and pantry intern, agreed. “As a campus community, that discussion about addressing the systemic issues has really just begun,” she said.In her work in Houston, O’Brien tried to convey this reality to Episcopalians and others who are in the position to make systemic changes. She took “the story of real, lived experiences of students on campus and told that story in other places where you had people who could do something about those problems. Campus ministry can help the church [in] building up its consciousness about the lives of young adults,” O’Brien said.Read more about itClick here for descriptions of six campus food ministries that Episcopalians are running.– The Rev.

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter December 2, 2016 at 11:37 pm Nothing says Christmas more than a decorated, lit Christmas tree. One of the best things about putting up the tree is that the decorating possibilities are literally endless. From the variety of ornaments that are available to color choices, ribbon, garland, tinsel and so on, you can create a one-of-a-kind tree.If you’re not sure where to start, here is a look at 5 popular Christmas tree decor options.The Farmhouse Look The farmhouse look has become popular in all facets of interior design. Many people are using reclaimed wood to make furniture or artwork and incorporating interior sliding barn doors to create separation between rooms has been popular for the last few years. The farmhouse look can also be used in your Christmas decor.How to achieve the Farmhouse Look:Creating the farmhouse look is all about picking a natural, earth-toned colors and thinking about incorporating unique textures.“The farmhouse look uses tan, cream, grey and browns with natural finishes such as wood and metal.Icy/Snowy Winter LookAlthough we don’t get a lot of snow in Apopka, you can create your own winter wonderland with a an icy/snowy effect on your Christmas.How to achieve the icy/snowy look:String classic white lights on your tree and use ornaments that remind you of winter weather like snowflakes, icicles, snowmen and ice skates, all in a crisp blue and white palette. Consider purchasing some flocking spray to spray your tree or other greenery you have or buy pre-flocked decor for an added touch of winter. The Vintage LookGo retro this year with a vintage themed tree. You’ll find yourself staring at the tree to take in all the vintage ornaments and it offers a great conversation piece for you and your guests if you are hosting any holiday parties.How to achieve the vintage look:You can get inspired by this vintage tree, which is a throwback to the 1950s. They used woody station wagon ornaments, as well as 50’s red Chevy pickups, campers, vintage Santa’s, trees and reindeer.Red & WhiteWhen we think of Christmas colors, we automatically think red & white. Traditional red & white never go out of style.How to achieve the red & white look:This trend is quite simple to achieve and the result is really gorgeous. Simply stick to these two classic colors when selecting ornaments and use a white tree if possible to really pull off the red & white effect. Since you’re going for a color theme, using large ornaments, like the balls and candy canes seen below, really make the colors pop.MagnoliaMagnolias are a quintessential Southern plant and they make for great Christmas decor. The white/cream color of their petals blends in perfectly with a green (or even white) Christmas tree, as well as with other greenery.How to achieve the Magnolia look:Grab some fake magnolia blooms and place them in your tree, wherever you would like. If you just wanted magnolias on your tree, that would be beautiful, but you could also add white and gold ornaments, as those colors compliment magnolias.

first_img Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Forecasters predict a 35 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and a 25 percent chance of a below-normal season for the upcoming hurricane season, which extends from June 1st to November 30th. NOAA’s hurricane-specific model – the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecast system – will be upgraded to offer greater resolution than ever before, increasing model resolution from 1.2 miles to 0.9 miles (2 km to 1.5 km) near the center of a storm. Additionally, the Hurricanes in a Multi-scale Ocean coupled Non-hydrostatic model was first implemented in 2017 and will undergo upgrades for the 2018 season to include greater resolution, new physics, and coupling with ocean models. The Anatomy of Fear Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The possibility of a weak El Nino developing, along with near-average sea surface temperatures across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, are two of the factors driving this outlook. These factors are set upon a backdrop of atmospheric and oceanic conditions that are conducive to hurricane development and have been producing stronger Atlantic hurricane seasons since 1995.“NOAA’s observational and modeling enhancements for the 2018 season put us on the path to deliver the world’s best regional and global weather models,” said Neil Jacobs, Ph.D., assistant secretary of commerce for environmental observation and prediction. “These upgrades are key to improving hurricane track and intensity forecasts, allowing NOAA to deliver the best science and service to the nation.” The new polar-orbiting satellite, NOAA-20, will join the NOAA/NASA Suomi NPP satellite and use a suite of sophisticated instruments to gather high-resolution data from around the globe to feed NOAA’s weather models, driving the 3-7 day weather forecast that is critical to preparedness and effective evacuations. Really, let’s NOT say, ” Welcome to the 2018 hurricane season”, like the headline above states…..let’s say STAY AWAY, AND DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT COMING AROUND HERE AND HANGING OUT, you hateful hurricanes! NOAA’s fleet of Earth-observing satellites is more robust than ever with the successful launch of the GOES-17 satellite in March. This satellite, along with the GOES-16 satellite – now GOES-East – contribute to a comprehensive picture of weather throughout the Western Hemisphere, allowing forecasters to observe storms as they develop.

There’s a tax incentive for thatNext articlePulse nightclub memorial opens today Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Dr. Gerry Bell, the lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, gives a summary of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season outlook. NOAA’s National Hurricane Center will make the Arrival Time of Tropical-Storm-Force Winds graphics operational for this hurricane season. One graphic displays the “earliest reasonable” arrival time of tropical-storm-force winds, at which point further preparedness activities could be hindered. A second graphic displays the “most-likely” arrival time of tropical-storm-force winds. “With the advances made in hardware and computing over the course of the last year, the ability of NOAA scientists to both predict the path of storms and warn Americans who may find themselves in harm’s way is unprecedented,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “The devastating hurricane season of 2017 demonstrated the necessity for prompt and accurate hurricane forecasts.”NOAA’s forecasters predict a 70-percent likelihood of 10 to 16 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 5 to 9 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 4 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which 6 become hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes. I am glad the H name for the hurricanes this year is Helene and not Herman. I personally don’t want a Herman Cane coming around here, or a Herman Cain coming around here either…..lol Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The National Weather Service will run a version of the Global Forecast System (called FV3 GFS) with a new dynamic core alongside the current GFS model – often referred to as the American model – during the 2018 season. This will mark the first dynamic core upgrade to NOAA’s flagship weather model in more than 35 years, representing the first step in re-engineering NOAA’s models to provide the best possible science-based predictions for the nation.

Please enter your email address here “Preparing ahead of a disaster is the responsibility of all levels of government, the private sector and the public,” said acting FEMA Deputy Administrator Daniel Kaniewski. “It only takes one storm to devastate a community so now is the time to prepare. Do you have adequate insurance, including flood insurance? Does your family have a communication and evacuation plan? Stay tuned to your local news and download the FEMA app to get alerts, and make sure you heed any warnings issued by local officials.”In addition to the Atlantic hurricane season outlook, NOAA also issued seasonal hurricane outlooks for the eastern and central Pacific basins. An 80 percent chance of a near- or above-normal season is predicted for both the eastern and central Pacific regions. The eastern Pacific outlook calls for a 70-percent probability of 14 to 20 named storms, of which 7 to 12 are expected to become hurricanes, including 3 to 7 major hurricanes. The central Pacific outlook calls for a 70-percent probability of 3 to 6 tropical cyclones, which includes tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes.NOAA will update the 2018 Atlantic seasonal outlook in early August, just prior to the peak of the season.last_img read more

As with the state’s 2.8 million K-12 pupils, university students finished spring semester attending classes remotely and doing coursework online.The task force’s general proposals will guide each of the 12 universities’ plans, which will be presented to the Board of Governors on June 23.University officials said a campus reopening plan, or a plan for continued remote curriculum, must be in place by mid-July to properly prepare for fall semesters.Last week, the California State University system announced it plans to continue with remote instruction at its 23 campuses in the fall.Monday’s State University System of Florida announcement came as “full phase one” of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ ’Safe reopening plan went into effect with relaxed restrictions on restaurants, gyms and public gatherings.Adding to the momentum Monday was Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa’s announcement it would reopen Thursday with “new and stringent ‘Safe and Sound’ program guidelines” that include mandatory face masks and temperature checks for all guests and staff.“Hard Rock and Seminole Gaming have made a tremendous commitment to sanitary protocols and a safety-first mentality for both guests and team members,” Seminole Gaming CEO and Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen said.Only 200 of the casino’s 800 hotel rooms will be open, and the Seminole Hard Rock Event Center will remain closed. On-site restaurants, including Hard Rock Cafe and Rise Kitchen & Deli, will reopen with social distancing requirements in place.center_img State University System Chancellor Marshall Criser III will present those proposals to the system’s 17-member Board of Governors on May 28.

They’re going to need a lot of runway to know a date certain,” DeSantis said. “So I’m not saying this is going to happen tomorrow, but I think it’s prudent to solicit these plans so we know the direction we’re going.”Disney reopened Shanghai Disneyland in China last week. On Wednesday, it will reopen the Disney Springs entertainment complex near Orlando.Disney warned on its website Monday that despite safety measures, “an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By visiting Disney Springs, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.”Escambia, Santa Rosa, Bay and Gulf counties have submitted vacation rental plans after DeSantis said he’d review them on a “case-by-case basis.”All counties’ plans discourage renting to travelers from hot spots, including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Louisiana.

first_imgTuesday Apr 28, 2009 Tana Umaga hits hard, then sets up Jerry Collins for the try With Tana Umaga making his return to the playing field recently at Toulon, there’s been renewed interest around the world from people wondering how he’s getting on at the ripe old age of thirty five.ADVERTISEMENTAn All Black legend, Umaga coached at Toulon before making the decision to pull on the boots again and see if he can turn his side’s fortunes around.While you can’t attribute success to one player in particular, he’s done well since making his comeback, and Toulon are now looking safe from relegation so are set to spend another year in the Top 14 in France.A few weeks ago when Toulon played Montabaun Umaga made this huge hit on lockMathias Rolland. The referee penalised Umaga, saying he didn’t use his arms in the tackle. You be the judge of that.Montauban kicked over the resultant penalty, but then from the kickoff, Umaga got his hands on the ball and set up fellow All Black Jerry Collins, who sprinted over for a great try.It was an awesome sequence of play as Umaga, who clearly felt hard done by after his hit, got the final say by setting up the try, and later, winning the match 33-20.ADVERTISEMENTTime:03:12 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

He scored two tries against Bath as they won 17-15 in a tight match that went down to the final kick. Their other flying wing David Lemi also scored a neat try.Worcester were too strong for new boys Leeds Carnegie as they won their meeting at Sixways 27-7. One of the better tries on the night came from Leeds centre Jonny Hepworth early on.Earlier today we featured a short clip of Gareth Delve and Graham Stowers fighting when Gloucester and London Irish met at the Madejski Stadium. London Irish were too good on the scorecard, winning 40-10 with tries to Delon Armitage and Sailosi Tagicakibau. Charlie Sharples scored for Gloucester.Kingston Park witnessed a 16-16 draw between the Newcastle Falsons and Sale, following two late Lee Thomas penalties. Rob Vickerman scored for the Falcons, but it was Mark Cueto who scored a superb try following a neat Thomas chip.Saracens got their second win of their campaign as they beat Northampton Saints 19-16 at the first ever game to be held at Wembley Stadium. Over 44 000 fans witnessed the match, in what was a brave but successful marketing exercise.Noah Cato got a runaway try for Sarries, with Saints centre Jon Clarke scoring a nice try for them after some quality play by the always impressive Shane Geraghty, who kicked 11 points towards the win.

first_imgMonday Nov 15, 2010 The All Blacks show their class against Scotland at Murrayfield New Zealand hammered Scotland 49-3 in front of 58 000 at Murrayfield on Saturday, scoring seven tries and bringing to an end the home side’s run of four unbeaten matches. Sonny Bill Williams was a deserving Man of the Match.While there was talk during the week of the Scots looking for a big performance, that was put to bed fast as the All Blacks blew them away with their far superior finishing and deft touches, led by Williams in the midfield.The big centre was playing in only his second Test but showed what hes capable of by setting up tries for those around him on more than one occasion.“Williams has everything. It’s fantastic he’s in our sport,” said Scotland coach Andy Robinson. “We have let the nation down,” he added bluntly, referring to his team.By the end of the game the Scottish commentators had resigned themselves to a humiliating defeat, and instead sang the praises of the All Blacks, and Williams in particular. He himself was happy with the game, but credited his support runners.“You’re only as good as your support play and you probably can’t get much better than the boys that I played alongside in the last couple of weeks. It does make it a lot easier,” Williams said. “I just hope they catch it, because if they don’t catch it…“It was a step forward – now I know I can mix it at this level — but in saying that there’s still big games ahead and there’s a long way to go. Ma’a and Conrad to me are the best midfield combination in the world. As long as I can keep my foot in there and hopefully keep staying in that 22 and get a bit of game time here and there, I know I’ll improve.”New Zealand travel to Dublin next to face Ireland, a team theyve never lost to. Scotland host South Africa at Murrayfield, where both sides will be looking to put in better performances than was seen on the weekend.

first_imgWednesday Jan 16, 2013 Fabrice Estebanez knockout hit on David Strettle Yesterday we focussed on a bit of alleged foul play from Ronan O’Gara but he wasn’t the only player to be cited following Round 5 of the Heineken Cup. Racing Metro centre Fabrice Estebanez suffered the same fate after he knocked out David Strettle.While it’s not entirely clear if Strettle was out cold from the swinging arm or from his face hitting the Stade de la Beaujoire turf, Estebenanez will have to front up at his hearing in Dublin on Thursday.The incident occured minutes after kickoff in the Pool 1 meeting between Racing Metro and Saracens in Nantes. A complaint was made by citing commision Eddie Walsh post match.The Racing Metro back’s alleged offence falls under law 10.4(a) Punching or striking. A player must not strike an opponent with the first or arm, including the elbow, shoulder, head or knee(s). Recommended IRB sanctions for Foul Play: Low End: 2 weeks; Mid-Range: 5 weeks; Top End: 8+ to 52 weeks. Estebanez’s punishment will depend on a number of factors, including testimonials from players, his previous disciplinary record, and if the incident was viewed as clearly malicious or not.The knock is fairly similar to one we saw late last year, when All Black Andrew Hore took out Wales’ Bradley Davies with a swinging arm in Cardiff. Hore received a 5 week suspension.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

That makes it very very special,” said the legendary lock.Eales discusses the try and shares what went through his mind as number eight Kefu went over for what is arguably one of the most memorable tries, and victories, in Wallaby rugby history.The Wallabies host the All Blacks in Sydney this Saturday, 17 Aug, at 8pm local (10:00am GMT)You can also view longer highlights of the match in our Classic Encounter feature on it hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgMonday Feb 3, 2020 Ridiculous ‘rucking conga’ still at large and with no sign of being eradicated from the game One thing that is slowly creeping its way back into the game of rugby is the use of ladder rucking before a box kick.ADVERTISEMENTThis was something that grew increasingly prevalent in recent years, where the team in possession would form a train of players leading back from the ruck to create a greater distance between the scrumhalf and the opposition defence in order to make a box kick easier.Saracens were the main exponents of this rucking conga, and World Rugby subsequently introduced the five second law at the base of the ruck to counteract this problem. The law states: “When the ball has been clearly won by a team at the ruck, and is available to be played, the referee calls “use it”, after which the ball must be played away from the ruck within five seconds.”57:55 – Ref calls “tackle”57:57 – Quins stop contesting & detach58:01 – ball available as SH rolls it with the foot58:04 – Ref says “use it”58:09 – Scrum Half picks up ballThe SH waits the full, legal, 5 seconds, but why does the ref not call “use it” at 58:01?— AJ Thomas (@zzypt) February 3, 2020However, this law is so seldom enforced by referees that the tactic has worked its way back into the game again. Often the words “use it” are heard, but very rarely is there any punishment if nothing happens within the next five seconds.This time round, Exeter Chiefs are the ones who are often associated with this conga, shown no clearer than in their recent Premiership Rugby Cup match against Harlequins. In this match, a train of five players were used, which brings the ball almost five metres back from where the ball carrier went to ground.Is this real? pic.twitter.com/1mPnCLR6BS— David Flatman (@davidflatman) February 3, 2020ADVERTISEMENTIt is hard to see how a team could ever set this up in the five seconds that they theoretically have once the ball is playable to the scrumhalf.Has he got the length in his kick to get over the ruck?— Nathan Sharpe (@NathanSharpe5) February 3, 2020Ultimately, if teams are able to get away with it, they will, as it creates a safe situation for a team to clear the ball without the threat of being charged down. It does equally slow the game down, and create far fewer opportunities for defences to compete, which does affect the sport as a product.The easiest way to combat such a problem is for referees to adhere to the laws which were originally created to combat this very problem.This tweet from late last year shows the exact same thing in action.The sooner this ludicrous loop hole gets taken out of the game the better. Looks ridiculous. @premrugby @btsportrugby pic.twitter.com/RRqmcUbFxh— 𝘾𝙝𝙧𝙞𝙨 𝘾𝙡𝙖𝙧𝙠𝙨𝙤𝙣 (@MrChrisClarkson) November 3, 2019ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The aim was not to simply produce an engineered outcome but produce a building which made the most of the sites natural amenity and re-introduced the surrounding native wetland environment. The building is literally reflected by way of its siting over an engineered water ecosystem which was the result of lengthy liaison & collaboration with National Parks, Environmental Agencies, State and Local Government.Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallThe design is formed in an innovative combination of in-situ and precast concrete. The concrete has been engineered & insulated incorporating a total solar panelled roof to provide for a constant cooler & more comfortable ambient temperature year-round. The design utilises massive cantilevers to mitigate impact from potential flooding & king tide inundation associated with cyclonic activity. The project has been designed to be solid and to withstand intense cyclones.

The traditional in this region approach of building using lumber lays at the core of this house construction. However, the thickness of the walls of such buildings does not meet modern requirements for insulation, therefore it was necessary to insulate the walls on the outside which prompted a complex malleable design of the facades. The facades are composed of two layers – recessed and metal trimmed, and exterior – trimmed with boards. It looks like a large wooden structure was fitted over a smaller metal one. Extremely concise outline of the building and the rich development of its facades meld in contrast. Windows of the house are either recessed into the volume  or, on the contrary, “pulled” out – some of them lay in the plane of the metal layer of the facade and some in the plane of the wooden one. Thanks to this solution there are either bay windows or cozy lodges in the interior.Save this picture!© Konstantin DubovetsThe inner space of the house is designed with the same complexity. The first floor is designed as a common guest area comprised of kitchen, dining area, fireplace and lounge that revolve around the staircase. These rooms open to the garden, so they have picture windows floor to celling and the dining room is adjacent to the terrace. One window in the living room opens into garage, where the owner plans to keep his collection of designer motorcycles, thus it becomes a show-window for these beautiful units and is equiped with appropriate lighting and brick “backdrop”. Private zones are “strung” on the staircase at the center of the building, each of the zones has it’s own level. Library is designedd as a balcony over a part of the living room. The master zone, comprised of the bedroom, study, dressing room and bathroom ends with vast loggia. As there are many levels, some of them are connected with the staircase via suspended walkways. Almost every area of the space is broken down into additional sublevels – a podium or, on the contrary, deepening of the floor in front of the recessed window, and there is a high loft for sleeping in one of the kids’ bedrooms.Save this picture!© Konstantin DubovetsSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Konstantin DubovetsWood, sheet metal and plywood are used in the interior design. The walls of the garage and the volume formed by metal structures  of the stairs one the first floor, are built out of the dark brick. The wood is tinted in separate shade at each level, each of the shade is close to the natural color of the wood and rangers from light silver to deep brown. These shades are manifested in the brightly-striped toning of the boards on the facade, which allows to combine the external and internal appearance of the house into a single image.Save this picture!© Konstantin DubovetsSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Konstantin DubovetsProject gallerySee allShow lessUTS Interior & Spatial Design Graduate Show 2015Exhibition OpeningVanke Residential Culture Center / IROJE Architects & PlannersSelected Projects Share Korea, Republic of House in Duhanino / Alexey RozenbergSave this projectSaveHouse in Duhanino / Alexey Rozenberg Year:  2014 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/776170/house-in-duhanino-alexey-rozenberg Clipboard Architects: Alexey Rozenberg Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img CopyHouses•Moscow, Korea, Republic of “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/776170/house-in-duhanino-alexey-rozenberg Clipboard 2014 Photographs Houses House in Duhanino / Alexey Rozenberg Year:  Save this picture!© Konstantin Dubovets+ 16 Sharelast_img read more

Moos House, designed by architect  Thomas Tampold of Tampold Architects and Yorkville Design Centre, located Just shy of North York. As Martha Uniacke Breen, of National Post puts it, “It makes sense that this iconoclastic Modernist mid-town house should have decidedly artistic air about it, with its distinctive mosaic art panel and flowing, sculptural shape.”.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalPreviously a bungalow whose most distinctive feature was its curved corner on the west side, now a modernist-contemporary work of art. The Moos couple were fond of this detail and that was our starting point. Their reverence for such a detail provided us with contemporary inspiration which flows throughout the design .Save this picture!© Larry ArnalThe face is clad in deep-grey steel panelling that sits off-centre and encapsulates the second floor, while the main floor is clad Japanese white porcelain tile. The integrity of the curved corner is in full-use with a wraparound window and there’s a similar, squared-off window on the second floor.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe front entrance is set to the side and complimented by a beautiful, digitised mosaic by the architects daughter, Evi Tampold. The entrance is overhung by the second floor, which extends off the side of the house and features bright lights and a red accent on the underside.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalAt the rear of the home, lines become even more eccentric. A broad, ship-like central promontory juts into the deck, filling the interior with light and  topped by a private deck, leading from the upper-story master bedroom. This was a response to another idea from the Moos couple: a kitchen shaped like an eye, with a pair of parabolic counters that face each other in the centre of the room(one topped in white composite, the other in deep-green granite). The back deck is a multi-level decking design, made out of premium Thermory-Weston wood from Estonia.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalImplementing green-space was necessary to contrast and compliment the sombre tones of the exterior front and back of the house. Deep- purples and greens, accented with stones in the front; natural green grass, a leafy garden and a tree build into the deck in the back.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Larry ArnalThe interior was treated as an extension of the exterior, flowing with it’s modernist, contemporary design. A notable example of this is the precision joinery of the staircase treads, which curve around the corner as they rise and form a sculpture of their own. “It was inspired by a staircase designed by Ozenfant, who was a contemporary of Corbusier.”- Thomas TampoldPleasing  visuals like this make it easy to overlook the practicalities of the design. Chrome levels for door, a multitude of premium Downsview Kitchens cabinets, an L-shaped pantry just off the kitchen, an in-home elevator, storage built into the walls of the master suite, concealing a dressing area and a roomy tub in the heavily glass-partitioned bathroom are just some of the practical, yet luxurious features of the home.

Designing a new building for the plot provided the opportunity to enhance the setting by establishing a stylish counterpoint to more traditionally designed neighbouring houses, while respecting the peaceful location. A key objective was to create simple, contemporary living spaces at the centre of the house that are orientated to benefit from the views of the surroundings. Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alan WilliamsThe house is arranged as three low rise bays, whose pitched roofs echo the working boat sheds typically found on the Broads. Externally the roofscape and side walls have been clad in blackened timber shingles to express the form as an abstract folded plane.  To the front and rear elevations the timber shingles are left untreated to allow them to weather and create a warm textured appearance. On the underside of the roof on the waterside elevation, timber boarding has been used to create a refined aesthetic that ties in with the internal joinery.Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsEach bay has a different volume and is orientated to address different views across the wetland landscape that surrounds the house. The double height vaulted living space faces onto carr woodland and a network of drainage dykes that teem with wildlife whilst the central bay offers panoramic views across the private lagoon. The bedroom wing has smaller framed views that pick out the reedbeds and jetty.Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsThe façade to the entrance is a simple expression of the three pitched bays that have been subtly faceted around the landscaped ramp, with the main architectural drama reserved for the waterside elevation. Timber shingle cladding contrasts the materiality of neighbouring houses, and is beginning to weather back to provide a sympathetic presence against the surrounding trees and water. Save this picture!SectionThe three bays of the house splay out in a way that the waterfront elevation becomes the most hierarchical point of the house. Where the entrance facade is relatively modest, the house offers an outstanding counterpoint to its surrounds when viewed from the lagoon, providing the area an exceptional example of contemporary architecture. Glazing adorns much of this elevation to provide views over the surrounding landscape from throughout the house.Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsDeep eaves emphasise the house’s bold silhouette and provide sheltered external living spaces that are useable across the seasons.  The covered external space makes reference to the verandas of the neighbouring Edwardian riverside chalets along the main river that were built as holiday homes with an emphasis on leisure and relaxation. Externally, a layered timber landscape provides the house with usable external space while acting as a transition from water level up to the elevated ground floor.  Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsThe planting was chosen to thrive in the semi-aquatic conditions, often using ornamental versions of native Norfolk Broads species to create a garden that is harmonious with its watery environs. The west edge of the site is more heavily planted to reflect the wild vegetation on the other side of the drainage dykes whilst the east edge is given a timber quayheading to allow for the mooring of boats.Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsInside, a simple broken plan arrangement allows for flexible living and accommodates family life by allowing different activities to take place simultaneously through the use of timber sliding doors. The central bay contains a large kitchen and dining area, and flows into the adjacent double height living space that is separated by a steel clad fireplace. The house’s three bedrooms occupy the third bay and are split over two floors, connected by an impressive spiral staircase that rises from the entrance hallway. Save this picture!SectionEach space has a carefully designed layout with built in furniture to set the scene for family life. A considered material pallet is used throughout these spaces, where a range of colours and textures respond to each room’s programme and create a cosy but varying atmosphere. Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsLocated on a peninsula, construction on site was not a simple task, however designing the house out of lightweight elements provided ease of transportation down a narrow access road in a transit van. Gaining access close to the water’s edge was a challenge and as the site is liable to flooding, the ground floor of the home had to be elevated to accommodate changes in water levels. As the house is built atop unstable materials, the house’s foundations were piled down 10m to the chalk rock layer.  The piles support a grillage of galvanised steel ground beams elevated above the high water mark. This limited the use of concrete and reduced the time on site required to form the substructure, allowing the early creation of a dry construction deck.  The house itself is timber framed with a handful of steel beams to provide support around the large glazed openings.Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsThe house has been designed with sustainability in mind and offers a far more energy efficient building than the outdated bungalow that was previously on site. An abundance of south facing glazing allows for a limited reliance on artificial lighting, while the deep eaves negate overheating during the summer. The insulation and vapour barrier lines are carefully maintained to achieve high levels of air tightness for the efficient use of the ventilation system with heat recovery. Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsWhile the home is built to be used primarily by Michell and his family, it has also been designed to be able to be leased out as a holiday rental, increasing financial viability of the project and allowing guests to visit and enjoy the secluded location. The house has therefore been designed to be considered as a prototype when others consider building holiday accommodation: a versatile home away from home whereby the design allows you to escape into the natural surroundings.Save this picture!© Alan WilliamsProject gallerySee allShow lessMecanoo & Ayesa’s Palace of Justice Nears Completion in CórdobaArchitecture NewsAB House / Pitsou Kedem ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Morph Structures 2016 Photographs Photographs:  Alan Williams Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Main Contractor: center_img ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/866817/backwater-platform-5-architects Clipboard Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officePlatform 5 ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNorfolkUnited KingdomPublished on March 14, 2017Cite: “Backwater / Platform 5 Architects” 14 Mar 2017.

In his first stop on the way home, Ulysses reaches the cave of the Cyclops, a fierce and strong builder who looked through one single point. And there he is locked up until he uses his ingenuity to escape and goes where the winds take him.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioSave this picture!DiagramCyclopean House is built, using the vigor of the builder, and the ingenuity of the engineer, to start a journey from the place of its manufacture –Madrid- to the place where it can definitely lie -on top of an existing garage, the ugly duckling of the area, located in a calm residential neighborhood of Brookline. The one-story gloomy construction accommodates the parking, workshop and service spaces, following its basic structural logic, and is completed with the big room built on it by the assembly of the large prefabricated elements that rest after their long transatlantic voyage. This open-plan double-height living area includes the main domestic activities and enables the transformation of the residual building into a two-story residential unit, technologically and spatially adapted to its time and the life of its users.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioThe new architecture concentrates structure and infrastructure in the perimeter: seven beams –of monumental scale- which specialize in one action each -cooking & bathing, storing, seating, dining, sleeping, working, projecting-. The rest of the plan is then cleared to be shared by different events succeeding in time and functions have the option to expand into the central space as needed deciding its temporary layout. The seven programmatic beams configure a thick enclosure that minimizes visual contact with the exterior on the three sides that adjoin neighbor houses and creates a big opening on the street side where the interior space can look at the trees in front and imagine itself in the midst of a park. Complementing this one eye, as beams assemble together embracing space, they lose their mass in the points of contact where flanges touch and the web recesses to provide additional light and ventilation to specific functions. Privacy and thermal insulation is thus guaranteed while maximizing light and view.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioSave this picture!First Floor PlanTo avoid overloading the preexisting structure or having to dig new foundations, ultra-light construction systems give form to the new elements: solid cores made of foam -98% air- reinforced by steel profiles and fire-proofed by a thin layer of cement & fibers. Dry joints and material lightness enable the different elements to be produced out of site –including finishes and fixtures- easily transported by ship and regular trucks and quickly placed together following a rhythmic sequence -carefully planned beforehand.Unlike the heavy, cold stone that prevented Ulysses from leaving the cave, Cyclopean House is light and warm, light due its lack of mass, and due to its air coat.

The expandable house (‘rumah tambah’ in Bahasa Indonesia, or rubah for short) is designed to be one part of a sustainable response to the challenges of rapidly developing cities like Batam, in Indonesia’s Riau Archipelago. Once a collection of sleepy fishing villages of a few thousand inhabitants, Batam developed to be a cosmopolitan city of over one million people in less than 40 years. This remarkable growth, fueled by a new free trade agreement and Batam’s proximity to Singapore, has not abated. Young migrants from all over Indonesia moved there to seek their fortune. By 2015 Batam was named the fastest growing city in the world. As a consequence, the city was confronted by major planning problems: How to accommodate the influx of migrants? How to provide sufficient housing, and appropriate water and sewage systems? How to fund adequate transport infrastructure, and provide schools, universities and hospitals?Save this picture!© Dio Guna PutraThe expandable house project focuses on the challenge of housing. It does so by allowing the building to be flexibly configured around the fluctuating patterns of resource consumption and expenditure, or metabolism, of its residents. Practically this means understanding the patterns of household income generation and expenditure, water, energy and food consumption, as well as waste production. As this metabolism is usually uneven and often precarious, it is important that the architecture can be a dwelling and income generating unit, that manages its own waste, water and energy locally.Save this picture!© Dio Guna PutraThe expandable house is designed around the following five principles:1. Sandwich Section. The house provides a roof that can be hoisted, and floor and foundations (the bread) that can support up to three additional floors (the filling). This system allows flexible financing whereby the developer or state housing agency provides the roof and foundations, while the residents provide infill as their circumstances require and budget allows. It also helps accommodate crucial income generating functions (shop, café, garage, cottage industry) along with dwelling.Save this picture!© Dio Guna Putra2. Domestic Density. The house encourages domestic densification in the vertical dimension. This supports the benefits of co-location of dwellings and employment. It also helps to reduce the settlement footprint on arable land, and the demand for expensive infrastructures (roads, electrical and potable water networks).Save this picture!© Dio Guna Putra3. Decentralized Systems. Rainwater harvesting and solar electricity generating technologies, sewage and septic tank systems, and passive cooling principles are integrated locally with the expandable house, avoiding expensive and often unreliable centralized, or ‘big pipe’, approaches to infrastructure provision.Save this picture!Plan4. Productive Landscapes. The expandable house integrates food and building material production capacity locally. This is achieved by integrating bamboo plantations and kitchen gardens into the planning logic of the house, and helps further diversify the resource base of the expandable house.Save this picture!© Dio Guna Putra5. Seed Package. The expandable house is designed as a seed package, containing technologies, material strategies and planning guidelines that can develop in different ways depending on local social, cultural and environmental conditions. We intend that diverse tropical towns will grow from the common seed package.Project gallerySee allShow lessMushroom House / SPACESPACESelected ProjectsWhare Koa House / Strachan Group ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/891811/expandable-house-urban-rural-systems Clipboard CopyUrbanism, Houses, Sustainability•Batam, Indonesia Expandable House / Urban Rural Systems center_img CopyAbout this officeUrban Rural SystemsOfficeFollowProductsConcretePlastic#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsUrbanismResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityBatamOn InstagramIndonesiaPublished on April 03, 2018Cite: “Expandable House / Urban Rural Systems ” 03 Apr 2018.

When in the summer of 2014, founding members of Atelier Branco, Matteo Arnone and Pep Pons were approached to design a leisurely retreat in the small town of Vinhedo, the brief posited that the house be able to accommodate at least two kind of needs: the need for a place to read, immersed within the site’s vibrant vegetation; the need for a place to think, reposed under the placidness of the area’s boundless subtropical skies. The client, a left block activist against Brazil’s military dictatorship in his youth and now renowned scholar of the history of political thought, had conceived of the house as a temporary haven between São Paulo and Campinas, at which the State University he held teaching posts since the beginning of the nineteen eighties. It was thus neither to be a permanent place of residence nor a holiday home as conventionally understood, but a place of reverie and contemplation, occasionally of work, away from the bustle of Brazil’s hectic metropolitan life.Save this picture!© Gleeson PaulinoRecommended ProductsDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82DoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumThe latest of five built works designed by the young Italo-Hispanic duo, Casa Biblioteca embodies the practice’s attentive research into architectural form, matured both during their formative years in Switzerland, where they had been students of the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio, and in their professional upbringings under practitioners of the caliber of Christian Kerez, Kengo Kuma and the two Aires Mateus brothers. It is a bold scheme, almost entirely realised in in-situ cast concrete, of which the constructional acumen and attentiveness to detail are somewhat characteristic of all Atelier Branco’s architectural pursuits. Setting up practice in Sao Paulo in 2012, the two have, in fact, built up an enticing and significantly varied portfolio of which the content ranges from the careful crafting of furniture products and fittings, to the design of commercial showrooms and office spaces, to the construction of numerous residential projects scattered throughout Brazil in which their talent has, perhaps, best expressed itself in these few years.Save this picture!© Ricardo BassettiBelonging to this later series, Casa Biblioteca is without doubt the most idiosyncratic of the bunch, both for the eccentricity of its client and the context it was born out of. It is, in fact, set atop of a steep north-facing terrain within a clearing of Vinhedo’s dense ‘mata atlantica’—the atlantic forest which extends over the larger part of Brazil’s littoral region. Due to the site’s topographical attributes, its design follows a distinctly ‘sectional’ rationale such that the spatial and functional disposition of the project is almost entirely articulated in the relation between two contour lines. In order of relevance, the first of these two lines consists in the line of the ground, of which the sloping profile has been manipulated to form a series of spacious horizontal terraces, fit for inhabitation; the second consists in the line of the roof, which ever so slightly hovers over the terrain’s uppermost retention wall to create a sharp, horizontal datum between the domesticated topography and the sky above it.Save this picture!© Gleeson PaulinoSave this picture!Section 02Save this picture!© Gleeson PaulinoEver a topos of Brazilian postwar architecture from Artigas to Mendes da Rocha, here too the concrete roof takes on a crucial role in the determination of the project both in the articulation of its program as in the characterisation of its outwards (and inwards) appearance. It is a 15 cm thin rectangular slab supported by eight long-limbed pillars which, albeit ‘basic’ in its formal resolution, distinguishes itself for the uncanny slenderness of its constitutive parts. When approaching the house from the main road, it is the upper face of this element that presents itself to the viewer offering access to a monumental viewing platform of ca. 20 by 10 meters, immersed within the foliage of the surrounding tree canopies. In place of a parapet, the deck is circled by a meter wide water bed which, in turn, defines a rectangular central island from which to contemplate the view. This latter is lined with finely cut Garapeira wood boards which meet diagonally against the deck’s symmetry line and point towards the horizon.Save this picture!© Gleeson PaulinoA dentil in the in the perimeter of the roof allows for a staircase to be fitted along its central access, leading down between two concrete walls into the house’s core space. This is an undivided, fully glazed, rectangular room hosting the entirety of the domestic program, of which the height gradually increases as one descends from the most intimate to the more exposed areas of the home. The retention walls which give its section the distinguished jagged profile are unique in height due to the uneven slope of the existing terrain, but spaced equally throughout to create neat tripartite structural system spanning 5.50 meters longitudinally from pillar to pillar, and terrace front to terrace front. Consequently, although equal in depth, the three terraces gain unique floor-to-ceiling heights providing the activities which take place on them with degrees of privacy and natural lighting conditions best suited to their needs. The sleeping areas are thus located onto the project’s uppermost terrace within an intimate and dimly lit, 2.35 meter tall space. This level overlooks the house’s central platform which measures 4.15 meters in height and hosts the client’s studio; it is the area of the house most directly connected to the landscape having two centrally placed glass doors located at either of its short sides (the doors also underline the project’s secondary axis of symmetry). Lastly, the terrace furthest from the house’s entrance is a living and dining area overlooking the surrounding greenery as if a loggia or a viewing deck; this is the brightest and most exposed area of the house, rising 1.25 meters from ground level and measuring 5.15 meters in height.Save this picture!© Jaqueline LessaA similarly methodical approach informs the location of the core services and storage facilities required by the client which are either carved into the project’s retention walls—as is the case with the two bathrooms along first terrace wherein all elements are entirely realised in in-situ cast concrete and which, differently from all other areas of the home, are toplit and thus bare no visual connection whatsoever to the exterior—or fitted accurately against them—as with the kitchen elements, bookcases and wardrobes. As such, the space remains untethered from elements foreign to its ‘disegno’.Save this picture!Ground floor planThe neatness of the architectural layout, is even further corroborated in the positioning of the stairs. These, rather theatrically transverse the space along its central axis to loop symmetrically around the perimeter of the house under a concrete-paved, covered pathway. But perhaps, the most significant aspect in giving the project it’s somewhat rudimentary grandeur is the selection and treatment of the materials deployed. The bare structure is realised entirely out of reinforced concrete and was cast under the direction of the architects within a single working day; the floors, as with the upper terrace, are lined with long and fine Garapeira wood boards placed perpendicular to the project’s longitudinal axis; and the whole is almost entirely wrapped within a single glazed facade of which the iron profiling and design motifs follow the iconic ‘paulistana’ tradition of the nineteen fifties. It is especially the care gone into the design of these latter elements that have made the fortune of the project of which the noble spareness could’ve easily been buried under the hideous chunkiness of modern-day aluminium frames. Instead, with its fine joinery and quasi-ethereal openness, the Casa Biblioteca consolidates its place amidst a rich tradition of glass houses and pavilions which since the dawn of twentieth century have almost persistently affirmed themselves as privileged sites of architectural experimentation.Save this picture!© Jaqueline LessaA nitidez do layout arquitetônico é ainda mais corroborada no posicionamento das escadas. Estes, ao contrário, dividem teatralmente o espaço ao longo de seu eixo central para circular simetricamente ao redor do perímetro da casa sob um caminho de concreto e coberto pelo mesmo. Mas talvez, o aspecto mais significativo em dar ao projeto é a grandeza um tanto rudimentar, é a seleção e tratamento dos materiais implantados. A estrutura é realizada inteiramente em concreto armado e foi concretada sob a direção dos arquitetos em um único dia de trabalho; os pisos, assim como o terraço superior, são forrados com placas de madeira Garapeira longas e finas, colocadas perpendicularmente ao eixo longitudinal do projeto; e o todo é quase integralmente envolvido por uma única fachada envidraçada, da qual os motivos de perfis e design de ferro seguem a icônica tradição paulistana dos anos cinquenta.É especialmente o cuidado dedicado ao design desses últimos elementos que garantem a riqueza do projeto, da qual a nobreza poderia facilmente ser enterrada sob a grosseria dos caixilhos de alumínio modernos. Em vez disso, com sua fina marcenaria e abertura quase etérea, a Casa Biblioteca consolida seu lugar em meio a uma rica tradição de casas de vidro e pavilhões que desde o início do século XX se afirmaram quase persistentemente como locais privilegiados de experimentação arquitetônica.Save this picture!© Ricardo Bassetti ArchDaily Houses Photographs:  Ricardo Bassetti, Gleeson Paulino, Jaqueline Lessa CopyAbout this officeAtelier Branco ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGlassResidential ArchitectureConcreteBrazilPublished on March 05, 2019Cite: “Library House / Atelier Branco Arquitetura” [Casa Biblioteca / Atelier Branco Arquitetura] 05 Mar 2019.

Faced with this premise, the project is proposed to be generated in phases.-An integral treatment of existing facilities and houses, recovering the link between the city and the river.-Rehabilitation of an existing storage shelter, to generate awareness.-Planting a system of community sanitary services on the shore connected to the basic public network for existing structures.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaThe floating habitat is made up of gabled roofs that point towards the city, two-section folding bridges (one fixed on land and the other mobile in the water), peripheral platforms, improvised enclosures of plastic and cane and doors that function as windows. In summary, this type of refuge represents the tectonics of what is necessary, where habitability and the necessary resources are related to the river and the territory that surrounds it.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaRefugio del Pescador is located on the banks of the river Babahoyo, in the city of Babahoyo, Los Ríos, Ecuador. With approximately 150 thousand inhabitants, the city has historically developed based on the exchange of products through the river, equipped with floating warehouses and shelters, with a strong tradition linked to fishing and river transport. With the passage of time, these conditions have been forgotten.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaDon Teodoro is a canoe repairman and artisanal fisherman who after 35 years continues to use his balsa wood equipment inherited by his father, already worn and in danger of collapsing. During the day he works in the city and in the evening he returns to his shelter.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaThe intervention proposes the integral use of laurel wood, being a traditional resource on the Ecuadorian coast. The first step was the reuse and extend the original structure of the floating platform to generate repair space and productivity, supported by recycled plastic drums under balsa wood buoys to improve buoyancy. The slope and height of the roof, along with its truss design, is increased to produce cross ventilation and create storage spaces. The accessibility and functionality of the refuge are optimized by adapting a new bridge. This added to complementary strategies such as slanted wooden panels in the envelope, for waterproofing, artificial lighting with photovoltaic cells and a vegetable garden on the bank of the river. With these strategies, the purpose of a transformation of the existing habitat in the same 9m2 space is fulfilled.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaThe financing of the shelter is self-managed (consisting of savings, donations, external volunteers) of the architecture team to obtain resources to work together with Don Teodoro, the community and collaborators.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaEl Refugio del Pescador is an engine of conscience that manifests a silent and unpretentious work for the better to improve the habitability of the river; through the active participation of the occupant, community, architect and the imminent need to revalue a traditional artisan technique in extinction along with the historical memory of the city.Save this picture!Cortesía de Natura Futura ArquitecturaBibliography1.

Located near the crossroad in the center of Hue city, Tiam was renovated from an 18-year-old house, which was in really bad condition. With a gross built area of only 35 m2, this is the living space for a three-generation family of seven members.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang DamSpending time talking and understanding the essential needs of the owner, we designed Tiam in a way to give better standard of living along with valuable experiences for each and all members in the house. It has three floors, one attic, balcony and terrace.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe first floor is for the café, which is run by the owner, and the rest of the building is for living. The vertical louvers and glass wall covering the house is like a vague partition between “in and out”, bring people inside the house closer to nature and to other people in the streets.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe louvers not only help reducing heat radiation but also create light effect and geometrical rhythm, which enhance people’s feelings every time watching, both from inside and outside.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang DamThe effective solution for such limited built area is to design the interior as minimal as possible, and to create continuous and open spaces. We create functional zones and place objects in order to bring members in family closer to each other, but still be able to have their private spaces if necessary.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe old and ineffective spiral staircase has been replaced by the straight one, which helps optimize spaces and achieve better circulation. Furniture in the house mostly made of bamboo, which is a sustainable and environment-friendly material. It owns some outstanding characteristics that are suitable for using in extreme climate in Hue.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe café on first floor was designed with the same elements and materials like the rest of the house. Long curved tables, slim and transparent chairs placing in such a minimal and monochrome space make all other colorful objects noticeable. Moreover, the appearance of people drinking and chatting in the café make it a lively and beautiful scene.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Quang DamPlant pots of different sizes are found in every corner of the building. Plant pots on the louvers, balcony, terrace and inside the house create calm and pleasant atmosphere. Although Tiam is located near a crowded crossroad, all family members still feel close to nature and have such a peaceful living space.

This is a house with warm interior-core sheltered by a white concrete “hood” with trapezoidal niches that frame the outside views. It is called Viewpoint House designed by Jim Caumeron Design. Located in a dense subdivision in Quezon City, Philippines. the L-shaped lot called for an L-shaped plan to fit the hefty 400 square meter client’s space requirements. The property’s east and back side has no views because it is blocked by a fence-wall owned by neighbors. The west side on the other hand exposes the lot to the heat of the afternoon sun. This side also fronts the street access and a small community park that can pose an issue on privacy if the living areas were to face west.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bien AlvarezJim Caumeron proposed to highlight the view of the park by providing a huge picture window at the corner of the house. This serves as the “mother” window, raised above a standard human height to lessen the visibility of the living room from the street. When one is lounging in the living area, they can look up to the big window with the view of the crown of the tree.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe entrance hallway and stairs were located on the west side with a ribbon window facing the street and the park. Above it is a wall of small punctured windows with a profile section-detail that is slanted to keep the rainwater out while still allowing natural air to seep through it. This wall blocks the sun’s heat in the afternoon but at the same time allows the stair atrium to breathe.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe setback was kept open as small private open areas of the dining room and the guests’ room at the ground floor. The garage adjacent to the living areas is transformable into an extended party area, highlighted by a square frosted glass door from the living room. It is typical for Filipinos during fiestas, christening, house blessings etc. to welcome everyone in the community to feast. Normally, the garage area where a big table can be set up is the best space for it to keep the main living and dining areas private and indirectly exclusive to family and close friends.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bien AlvarezAt the second floor, two hallway windows are located on both ends for light and cross- ventilation. The hallway has a flank of doors that are recessed on the wall echoing the profile of the window viewports. Behind these recessed spaces are storage and closet spaces. One of these doors is the library with customized tables, lamps and bookshelves. The space was meant to be fully-airconditioned but the architect insisted to make the picture window along the hallway to be openable.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThere are also small random windows on the opposite side of the library with few of them that are operable. The window frames were customized wooden casements with magnets for closing. The small windows reflect the punctured windows of the west façade and becomes a backdrop of the library interior when looking towards the hallway. A portion of the corridor is partly family room. When the air-condition is on, a pocket glass door can be pulled out from the wall making the hallway area part of the space.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe owners’ local hardwood collection was used for the second floor and wood finishes that dictated the color scheme of the house. The architect imagined the wood finishes as the warming and comforting element in the interior. The geometric visual language of the exterior can also be seen on the ceiling  design and interior furnishings Jim Caumeron designed.Save this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe “mother” window is also used as view portal by two interior windows – the family room and the masters’ bedroom at the second floor. Instead of having a boring blank wall opposite the masters’ bed, the architect provided a bay window seating that overlooks the living areas, family room and the view of the park. Same views can be enjoyed in the family room. This makes the tree at the corner of the park referenced as the viewpoint of the house. center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/951932/viewpoint-house-jim-caumeron-design Clipboard “COPY” Projects Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  2020 Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJim Caumeron DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsQuezon CityOn FacebookPhilippinesPublished on November 24, 2020Cite: “Viewpoint House / Jim Caumeron Design” 23 Nov 2020.

The practice of Feng Shui finds its origins in China, going back about 6,000 years. It literally translates to “wind and water” and is a concept aiming to design and plan buildings and their surroundings for harmony and happiness. Feng Shui calls on you to organise objects to allow for the flow of what is referred to as natural energy seen as moving through a space and all living things. In this context it is understood that a building’s layout, colours and materials affect the flow of energy.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathFeng Sui design applies three core principles: allow energy to flow, balance between natural elements with their own sets of attributes including colour, texture and shape, and place objects that represent your life’s journey within a space. To a Westerner only vaguely familiar with some of the specific theories and ideas, there is a surprising correlation between Feng Shui and what we would call “good design”: sun light access, air and ventilation, balance of natural light, equal relationship between inside and out, comfort and privacy, balance of materials, a well organised environment.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathSave this picture!© Shannon McGrath The old terrace house was restored, a new curved timber wall at the end of the hallway works as both a link between old and new and a barrier to the street. The extension is separated with a courtyard for sunlight into the old, and natural light and ventilation into the new house. The hall linking terrace with extension was widened for a study with outdoor access. The curved timber wall, enclosing a store, leads into the kitchen planned to greet visitors at arrival and overlooking the courtyard and study.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!SectionBehind the store, a stair void appears. The back is coloured reflecting light into space below. Colour and materials only reveal themselves gradually, a design move often applied by Mexican architect Louis Barragan and one of my favourites. Between stair and kitchen, we placed the dining room, a busy, engaging, and open space, designed to encourage conversation.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe lounge room walls were skewed and stretched, drawing sunlight and garden into the dining room. The stairwell itself forms a large void prioritising space over utilities. It appears oversized. However, the benefits are obvious: elevated beyond providing access, the stair creates a light-filled and generous living space on a small footprint.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe timber floor of the dining continues into the ceiling of the adjacent lounge, a retreat with a sense of calmness looking back into the house, courtyard, and out into the garden. The upstairs rooms, more exposed to sun, wind, and rain are formed and finished to achieve a balance between shelter from elements and exploring views into the distance.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe best form of interaction is coincidental and the skill lies in planning the coincidence. Some layout and design decisions were made for this purpose evident in the brick platforms for seats facing dining space or lounge to allow for interaction. Like any building project, the Feng Shui house aims to balance user needs with cost, both financial and environmental.To build climate-conscious requires building less, and in order to be accepted, we need to build better qualities with lesser means. We trust this has been achieved by applying principles of balance, meticulous planning, and playing with space and scale.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessAvlakia House / ARP – Architecture Research PracticeSelected ProjectsMH Office / Gendai SekkeiSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952654/feng-shui-house-steffen-welsch-architects Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952654/feng-shui-house-steffen-welsch-architects Clipboardcenter_img Houses CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia Photographs:  Shannon McGrath Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath+ 24Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeSteffen Welsch ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on December 04, 2020Cite: “Feng Shui House / Steffen Welsch Architects” 04 Dec 2020.

The survey of 111 online charity supporters found that they were young, sophisticated and well-informed.They were primarily 25-34 earning from lower to middle incomes. Over 60% of them said they used the Internet daily for business, general information, news and travel. The most popular use of the Internet was for “business” and “general information” (79%), then “news” and “travel” (67% and 54%), 49% use the internet for “shopping”, 47% for “personal banking”, and 45% for “information on charities”. Only 13% used it for games and 8% used chat rooms. Advertisement Almost two thirds of them reported giving online tax-effectively.Respondents were more likely than most to make regular donations. They often consulted a range of information sources before deciding which charities to support. These included fundraising appeal letters and charity newsletters, the Internet and e-mail, TV and radio and newspaper articles. Around 25% said they had made online donations since April 2000, and 66% said they would be likely to do so in the future.Cathy Pharoah, Director of Research at CAF, said: “For charities looking to develop their e-business, this unique snapshot of online giving should give them all the encouragement they need to start making the most of the Internet.”CAF estimates that one per cent of the UK population give to charities online.Find out more from CAF.
