France hopes for strong growth in 2011 and ducks swingeing cutbacks

first_img FRANCE will curb civil service spending and scrap tax breaks but otherwise rely on faster economic growth to replenish public coffers in 2011, according to a budget bill that some economists said lacked ambition.Wary of voter dismay over pension reforms ahead of elections in early 2012, President Nicolas Sarkozy is seeking to honour deficit-reduction pledges without the level of austerity that many of France’s Eurozone peers have programmed in as they seek to neutralise the heavy state spending that helped pull them out of recession.The cornerstone of the bill presented yesterday is a cut in the public deficit to six per cent of gross domestic product in 2011 from 7.7 per cent in 2010, the first phase of a plan to trim the gap to the EU’s three per cent ceiling in 2013 and to two per cent in 2014. France also expects it debts to peak in 2012.Economy minister Christine Lagarde said she hoped the plans for deficit cuts worth close to €40bn (£34bn) next year would reassure financial markets that remain edgy about bloated debt levels in many European countries.“Investors who finance and refinance our debt are extremely attentive to improvement of public finances, as are the rating agencies,” she told said.The centre-right government has to convince markets that France is serious enough on deficit control to keep an AAA credit rating that allows it to service its debt at a low cost. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Share More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com Show Comments ▼ KCS-content center_img Wednesday 29 September 2010 11:12 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL France hopes for strong growth in 2011 and ducks swingeing cutbacks last_img read more

Underwriting profits grew five per cent to $683m, as it added ten per cent to the net premiums it wrote, to a total $3.2bn. It wrote $4.07bn gross premiums, up from $3.71bn in 2009.Chief executive Stephen Catlin said the results were achieved “despite the catastrophe losses and the low interest rate environment” that continued to make the market challenging.Chief operating officer Paul Jardine said 2010’s losses were normal. “Our risk appetite has remained pretty constant,” he said. “It is within what we would expect in any year.”Jardine added that Catlin, Lloyd’s’ largest syndicate with an 8.5 per cent market share, was not involved in UK M&A activity. “From a London perspective I don’t see what a further acquisition would do for us,” he said. Catlin expects to make a $50m loss from Australian floods in January. center_img Share Catlin shakes off cat loss Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut whatsapp last_img read more

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Today’s trading update from promising small-cap growth share Tristel (LSE: TSTL) hammered the price. As I write, the stock changes hands around 12% lower, at 409p. Is this a buying opportunity?Meanwhile, it’s no secret in the investing community that Tristel has so far been a huge success story, both operationally and for its shareholders. Indeed, sales of the firm’s infection prevention and contamination control products have soared. And that’s driven some impressive numbers. For example, over the past five years, revenue has grown by almost 100%, earnings have increased by around 125%, and cash flow is about 120% higher.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…A well-balanced growth shareThat looks like well-balanced growth underlined by the fact that the company carries zero debt. And the directors have transferred some of that success to shareholders. The dividend is up around 124% since 2015. But the biggest boost to shareholder returns has arrived via the share price. Even after today’s decline, it’s still about 330% up over five years.And I think that rocketing share price may be one reason for the stock’s weakness today. As well as operational progress, the share’s uptrend was driven by a valuation re-rating. Indeed, the forward-looking earnings multiple for the current trading year to June 2021 sits near 33. Compared to growth forecasts that rating looks well up with events, to me.Meanwhile, today’s update was encouraging in many ways. It covers the full trading year to 30 June. And like many businesses, Tristel was affected by the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic.Medical device decontamination products generated 80% of global sales in the eight-month period to 28 February. But sales eased off when Covid-19 hit because hospitals worldwide postponed most patient appointments so they could cope with the pandemic.Meanwhile, until February, hospital surface disinfection products produced around 9% of sales for Tristel. But sales in this area surged when hospitals stepped up cleaning to combat Covid-19.Overall, the outcome was good for the business. COVID-19 caused a temporary reduction of £0.5m in medical device decontamination product sales. But that was offset by a £2m increase in sales of hospital surface disinfection products.Ahead of market expectationsThe directors reckon the financial outcome for the year has come in “ahead of market expectations.”  Turnover is up around 21% compared to the prior year, and adjusted pre-tax profit is around 21% higher also.Looking ahead, chief executive Paul Swinney reckons the higher sales momentum of the past four months will only continue if hospitals can return to pre-Covid-19 levels of patient throughput. And if they maintain the intensity of their cleaning and disinfection routines.However, the directors think the UK “might lag behind” other markets when it comes to building up patient throughput. And that’s significant because it represents around 35% of the company’s global medical device decontamination sales.Nevertheless, the directors are “cautiously optimistic” for the current financial year and beyond. I reckon today’s down-move in the stock is rational and blows off some of the froth from the valuation. And I’d be looking to buy the shares on dips and down-days because of the ongoing international growth story. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Hurricane Irma intensifies to Category 4

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 No matter what the future holds for Irma’s path and intensity, the NHC advises, “Everyone in hurricane-prone areas should ensure that they have their hurricane plan in place, as we are now near the peak of the season.”Forecast: Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Cuba, BahamasLeeward IslandsIrma is expected to make its closest pass to the Leeward Islands late Tuesday through Wednesday and will likely be an intense hurricane at that time, possibly still a Category 4.Hurricane-force winds (74-plus mph) are expected within the hurricane warning area of the Leeward Islands by Tuesday night, and tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) are expected by late Tuesday.Preparations should be rushed to completion in the Leeward Islands at this time.The exact strength of the winds will be dependent on the path of Irma’s circulation center near the Leeward Islands.Major wind damage can be expected if the eyewall of Irma cruises through the Leeward Islands, including Saint Martin and Anguilla. Storm-surge flooding, high surf and rip currents will also be dangers, and heavy rain could contribute to flooding and mudslides, as well.The NHC says that a storm surge of 6 to 9 feet above normal tide levels is possible in the extreme northern Leeward Islands near and north of where the center tracks.Rainfall totals in the Leeward Islands may total 3 to 6 inches, with locally 10 inches in spots. U.S. Forecast: Watching Florida, Southeast CloselyIt is too soon to speculate on the specifics surrounding the U.S. threat from Irma, but the hurricane is forecast to remain powerful as it draws closer to Florida later this week.As mentioned before, the vast majority of the forecast guidance indicates Irma will begin to turn more to the north by this weekend. The strength and expansiveness of the Bermuda-Azores high over the Atlantic Ocean and the timing, depth and location of a southward dip in the jet stream near the eastern U.S. will dictate where that northward turn occurs.(MORE: Why the U.S. Forecast is Uncertain)For now, all residents along the Southeast coast and eastern Gulf Coast, including Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, should monitor the progress of Irma closely.The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its advisory late Monday afternoon that the chances of Irma affecting parts of Florida later this week or this weekend are increasing. In addition, rough surf and dangerous boating conditions will exist throughout the southeastern U.S. coastline by late week.Destructive winds, storm-surge inundation, pounding surf and heavy rainfall could all be potential threats from Irma in the southeast U.S. Determining where those impacts will occur and how serious they may be is too early to determine. For the next five days, Irma will move west, then west-northwest on the south side of a ridge of high pressure called the Bermuda high, centered in the central Atlantic.(INTERACTIVE MAP: Track Irma)By this weekend, Irma will begin to turn north in the direction of a departing southward dip in the jet stream that will set up in the eastern United States. Where that northward turn occurs will be critical for what impacts Irma may bring to parts of the southeastern United States.Here’s a general overview of the timing for impacts from Irma into this weekend.Potential Impact TimingLeeward Islands: Late Tuesday-WednesdayPuerto Rico/Virgin Islands: Wednesday-ThursdayDominican Republic/Haiti: Thursday-FridayTurks and Caicos: Thursday-FridayBahamas: Friday-this weekendCuba: Friday-this weekendSoutheast United States: This weekend into early next week (possibly as early as Friday in South Florida) Current Storm StatusThe highest cloud tops, corresponding to the most vigorous convection, are shown in the brightest red colors. Clustering, deep convection around the center is a sign of a healthy tropical cyclone. Hurricane warnings have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands. This includes Antigua, Barbuda, Anguilla, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba, St. Eustatius, Sint Maarten, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy.A hurricane watch is in effect for Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, the Virgin Islands and Guadeloupe.In addition, a tropical storm warning has been issued for Guadeloupe, and a tropical storm watch is in effect for Dominica. From the Weather Channel Hurricane warnings have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands, and a hurricane watch is in effect for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.Irma will move close to the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico into midweek, and then near Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos, Cuba and the Bahamas late week into this weekend.This weekend into early next week, Irma will turn north and likely impact a portion of the U.S. coastline.It’s too soon to know exactly what impacts to expect in the U.S. and where they will occur, but the chances of Irma impacting Florida are increasing.Hurricane Irma is a growing threat to the continental United States, with impacts possibly beginning in Florida later this week. Before that, Irma will bring dangerous conditions to the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Bahamas and Cuba.Below is everything we know about Irma right now, including its latest status, along with potential forecast impacts in the U.S. and the Caribbean Islands.Irma’s Latest Status, TimingThe center of Irma is located about 450 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving westward at about 13 mph.Irma has strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane, and satellite imagery shows that it has become better organized in the past day with an eye now clearly evident. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.Low wind shear, increased mid-level moisture and ample oceanic-heat content favor that Irma will remain a major hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) for the next several days, though some intensity fluctuations are likely at times.(LATEST NEWS: Florida Governor Declares State of Emergency Ahead of Possible Hurricane Irma Strike)One potential inhibitor of Irma maintaining its intensity would be if the hurricane’s core interacts with land as it cruises westward near the Greater Antilles later this week. Please enter your comment! Projected PathThe red-shaded area denotes the potential path of the center of the tropical cyclone.

Tropical-Storm-Force Wind ProbabilitiesThe shaded colors represent the probability of any one location experiencing tropical-storm-force winds from Irma in the next five days. Rainfall Forecast Through ThursdayLocalized higher amounts are possible. Watches and WarningsA watch means hurricane or tropical storm conditions are possible within 48 hours. A warning means those conditions are expected within 36 hours.

Josh Lewsey talks about his Mount Everest experience

first_imgThursday Mar 24, 2011 Josh Lewsey talks about his Mount Everest experience Earlier today it was announced that Josh Lewsey will be coming out of retirement to play for Wasps, two years after hanging up his boots. It seems a good time to learn a bit more about what he’s been up to since then, namely with his Everest expedition.Lewsey, now 34 and working full time as a management consultant, has played in a few charity games recently. He’s shown that he’s still in excellent shape, so was approached by Wasps to provide cover for their back three until the end of the season.It’s a short term contract so he was happy to take up the opportunity to help out the club he played with for so long. “This isn’t a long term thing but after playing in a couple of recent charity games, Leon and Shaun (Edwards) contacted me to see if I could assist the club for the remainder of the season,” Lewsey said.“If they think I could positively contribute to my old club in any way- be it on the field or around the dressing room on match days, then I’d be happy to do so.”As we’ll be seeing him playing again soon, here’s an excellent clip from Total Rugby in which the 2003 World Cup winner talks about his incredible experiences on Everest. It’s really interesting to see what he’s been up to, and starts two minutes in, after a bit of World Cup talk. :: Related Posts :: Danny Cipriani and Josh Lewsey box and makeup (2008) England knockout hosts France – Josh Lewsey try (2007) Josh Lewsey’s try saving tackle on Jean De Villiers (2007) Josh Lewsey hit on Frank Murphy (2007) Josh Lewsey big hit on Mat Rodgers (2003) Time: 05:00 Thanks to the IRB’s Total Rugby showADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The land for construction of a house in the Jizera Mountains slightly slopes towards the east. On the plot there are two mature lime trees and the land to the west overlooks a meadow. The eastern boundary of the land forms an access road at which the remote vistas of mountains ridge open. To the south of the building there is a central part of the village with baroque rectory, church and former school.Save this picture!© Lina NemethThe house faces to the central area of the village and offers an outlook between the church and the school. To allow for an expansive view of the Giant Mountains, the upper floor hosts the largest window in the home. The house is located behind the lime trees, with the edge of the roof running parallel to the contours of the topography, similar to many buildings in the vicinity.Save this picture!© Lina NemethThe formal composition of the house is based on the scales and roof shapes of local styling. Clear and comprehensible shapes are created by the gabled roof, reinforced by a unified wooden cover and highlighted by walls constructed of upright planks. A dormer penetrates the main mass of the house, bringing the attic closer to the tops of the lime trees, allowing better views of the Giant Mountains.Save this picture!© Lina NemethThe ground floor, whose main entrance faces east, is divided into living areas oriented towards the village and to the southeast. Facilities and bedrooms are also given a view to the east. The upper floor is currently designed as open space, without completion of its dispositions. Later there will be a second bathroom, workroom and bedrooms.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessYAP IM-Debris Competition Entry / Yalin Architectural DesignUnbuilt ProjectAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share 2011 Area:  138 m² Area:  138 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Jindřich Jelínek+ 18 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/352481/roprachtice-house-prodesi Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/352481/roprachtice-house-prodesi Clipboard Czech Republic ArchDaily CopyHouses•Roprachtice, Czech Republiclast_img read more

For this project, we developed a 100% recyclable concrete which, instead of sand, contains SHIRASU, the deposit of pyroclastic flow of volcanic ash which is found in the Southern parts of Japan in abundance. The advantage of this concrete is its strength and durability that increases to grow over a long period of time because of the pozzolanic reaction of SHIRASU. Also its density, which comes from the fine granularity of SHIRASU, protects the concrete from neutralization. SHIRASU also contains micro closed-cells which gives the concrete humidity control and deodorizing qualities. This development and use of SHIRASU concrete can be a huge asset to those areas where SHIRASU can be excavated.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaTransition from the planimetric cognition to the cross-sectional cogitation
For architecture on a small site, sectional and volumetric design becomes very important. A high level sound insulated audio visual room in the basement, and a spacious gallery and a Japanese room is placed on the first floor. Functionality was prioritized on the second floor with a living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The living room is a very small space, but a 5m high ceiling and a large oblique triangular window, drawing in an abundance of external light, results in a cognition that is far greater than the reality. The final design of this space was derived through a vast number of three-dimensional models. Three design methods that achieve physical and psychological richness.Save this picture!© Toshihiro Sobajima1. “NU-KE (noo-kay)”
Using visual and psychological connections between interior and exterior, “NU-KE” “enlarges” space and adds depth by multi-layering of walls and spatial volumes.
I pruned away some corners from the rectangular building to create “NU-KE” towards the sky; the last remaining vast piece of nature in Tokyo.Save this picture!Floor Plans2. Simultaneous Contemplation of plan/section
I always draw plans and sections simultaneously and make numerous study models to create a multi-layered space with an enhanced spaciousness.
i.e.; the layering of concrete steps from the basement, the living space extending to the bedroom above, the toilet and high window leading to the sky and the bedroom, the bathroom to the exterior via a skylight. These interconnections produce spatial richness that cannot be measured by area alone.Save this picture!© Toshihiro Sobajima3. Colour and texture 
Here, I used exposed concrete, charcoal stained and persimmon tanned wooden boards, hammered steel, black stainless steel, oxidized black silver plate etc. The colors of these rich materials are unified by a grey to black colour and all have a matt texture. This attention to colour and texture creates unity, and makes spaces interesting and enriched.Save this picture!© Jérémie SouteyratProject gallerySee allShow lessHUB Board Game Bar / Wuhan Pures DesignSelected ProjectsYi She Mountain Inn / DL AtelierSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Dornbracht, Toto, Acor, Kitazawa Sangyo, Stoneworks “COPY” R·torso·C / Atelier TekutoSave this projectSaveR·torso·C / Atelier Tekuto ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/884320/r-star-torso-star-c-atelier-tekuto Clipboard Area:  103 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project YAMASHITA, Yasuhiro + MIZUKAMI, Kenji + TOMOYOSE, Atsushi/ Atelier Tekuto ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/884320/r-star-torso-star-c-atelier-tekuto Clipboard Projects 2015 Year:  CopyHouses•Tokyo, Japan Architects: Atelier Tekuto Area Area of this architecture project MATSUOKA, Shigeki + NAKADE, Shuichi + KITAOKA, Tsubasa Photographs:  Toshihiro Sobajima, Jérémie Souteyrat Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs R·torso·C / Atelier Tekuto Construction Management: ArchDaily Houses Japan “COPY” Architectural Design: last_img read more
