He said he was “working with the Treasury” to look at ways in which the government could “share the risk of higher fuel prices with the consumer.” center_img whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndoAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteUndoDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionUndo Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapplast_img read more

London set to escape house price slump

Prices in the capital are expected to increase over the next three months, according to the latest Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) survey.“There is a very clear regional pattern emerging with London seeing a greater level of price resilience,” said RICS’s Ian Perry, “while in much of the north and midlands, the market remains under greater pressure.”Surveyors expect the number of sales in the capital to grow over the coming months.Overall, the market’s downward trend is beginning to slow, suggesting it will soon bottom out. The proportion of surveyors reporting a drop in prices fell to 37 per cent in January, from 50 per cent in December and 53 per cent in November. A majority – 56 per cent – reported no change in house prices.There remain far more surveyors reporting a fall in prices, 37 per cent, than those reporting a rise, six per cent, creating a headline balance of-31 per cent. However, this was the most positive the balance has been since July last year, RICS said.And the fall in both demand and supply also looks set to level out, possibly stoking a rise in activity for 2011. The fall in new vendor instructions, which indicate supply, slowed to a balance of-3 per cent, up from -14 in December. Demand is still falling, at -7, yet this is an improvement on December’s balance of -12. whatsappcenter_img Show Comments ▼ London set to escape house price slump by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHealthyTed Health Magazine10 Surprising Benefits of Bananas You Possibly Didn’t Know AboutHealthyTed Health MagazineAll Things Auto | Search AdsNew Cadillac’s Finally On SaleAll Things Auto | Search AdsTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Stock market crash: why I’d buy FTSE 100 shares today ahead of a rebound

first_img 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. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Buying FTSE 100 stocks today may not seem to be a worthwhile move at first glance. After all, the index faces a highly uncertain period, while many of its members have cut their dividends.However, over the long run, FTSE 100 stocks could offer strong recovery potential following the recent market crash. Their total returns may prove to be relatively high, which could mean that now is the right time to build a portfolio of large-cap shares.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…Income appealAt the present time, it’s exceptionally difficult to obtain an above-inflation income return on your capital. Assets, such as cash and bonds, offer low income returns due to interest rates being at their lowest level in history. Likewise, buy-to-let property may struggle to produce impressive income returns. This is due to adverse tax changes as well as a more challenging mortgage market.Although many FTSE 100 shares have postponed or cancelled their dividends, they could resume them over the medium term, in many cases.For example, a large proportion of FTSE 100 companies have solid balance sheets. This could make shareholder payouts relatively affordable over the long run. Furthermore, since the world economy has always recovered from its recessions and depressions, there’s a high chance more favourable operating conditions will return for FTSE 100 companies. This may enable them to return to paying rising dividends in future.Capital growth potentialAs well as their long-term income appeal, FTSE 100 shares offer strong capital growth potential. Certainly, the index may fail to fully recovery from its recent crash over a matter of months. But its track record shows it’s very likely to experience a rebound after its recent lows. It has always achieved this feat – even after the very worst bear markets that have taken place since its inception.Furthermore, FTSE 100 stocks could become highly popular among income-seeking investors as their dividends return in the coming years. As mentioned, the income on other mainstream assets may prove to be highly disappointing over the medium term. Therefore, as shareholder payouts start to return to FTSE 100 stocks, they may experience higher demand from investors that pushes their share prices higher.Portfolio strengthBuying a diverse range of FTSE 100 companies could limit your risks and boost your overall returns. A diverse portfolio is less reliant on a small number of companies for its returns, which could allow you to capitalise on the FTSE 100’s recovery potential over the coming years.Although there may not be a quick rebound in the FTSE 100’s price level, the valuations of its members suggest now is a worthwhile buying opportunity. They could offer a potent mix of capital growth and income potential that helps them to significantly outperform other mainstream assets in the long run.

Designing for the realities of a sub tropical climate – with its harsh sunlight, summer heat and oppressive humidity, winter chills, damp, corrosive air borne salt, high rainfall and occasional tropical storms and fierce winds– requires a deep understanding of the micro climate and the landscape, and how both can be used to create an efficient, functional and delightful place to live.Save this picture!© Luc RemondThis new family house in Australia’s Byron Bay, designed by THOSE architects for a young family with their clan of young children, demonstrates how climate can be harnessed to best effect. Distinctly different in form and structure from the local beachside architectural vernacular, its design turns climate challenges to advantage, creating a light filled, generous home that stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter, encourages sea breezes to flow through, and connects every room to the outside, either visually or functionally, or both.Save this picture!© Luc RemondHere, the architects have achieved this by turning the floor plate on its side, opening it to the north and connecting all spaces via a large courtyard that joins old and new parts of the house, and links all internal spaces to the outside. Lush indoor plants and a palette of natural materials further blur the boundaries between inside and outside, and transcend the essentially suburban character of the site.Save this picture!© Luc RemondThe site is typical of the area, both relatively long and narrow measuring 16m X 40m, with a East/West orientation. Being this close to the beach means it benefits from the cooling NE sea breezes in summer.  The architects decided to retain the original house, which was poorly designed but solidly built, for use as children’s rooms and service areas. To the rear hey added a new two-storey volume, mostly hidden from the street behind the original house.Save this picture!© Luc RemondA generous courtyard acts as the “connector” for the whole house – all spaces open onto or access it.Overall, the house is modest in size, and contains only what is needed – no excess.Save this picture!© Luc RemondIt has been designed using passive environmental design principles. Additional courtyard spaces are created on the eastern and western edges of the house, providing spaces where the summer sun can be avoided throughout the day. Large sliding doors invite the outside in, enabling inside/outside use of the home through the long warm summers. Openings are limited, and used only where needed – generally to capture breezes or frame views. Deep reveals provide sun and weather protection.Save this picture!© Luc RemondBrick was chosen to reference the original dwelling, with surface treatment of the bricks used to define old from new. Robust materials are used, designed to withstand young family life and the harsh coastal climate, particularly salt. Limestone paving references the sandy beaches and provides a soft surface to walk on. The hard exterior surfaces are softened internally through timber joinery, linen curtains and soft neutral tones. Furniture and fittings are mainly sourced from Australian and local artisans and suppliers.Save this picture!© Luc RemondProject gallerySee allShow lessOffice for Communique / groupDCASelected ProjectsNishikicho-bunkaisan / SUGAWARADAISUKE ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharecenter_img ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeTHOSE ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentSustainabilityByron BayAustraliaPublished on October 03, 2018Cite: “House Burch / THOSE Architects” 02 Oct 2018.

Central Park will be the site of a new hospital for coronavirus patients

first_imgStephanie Keith/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — A 68-bed makeshift hospital is expected to open in Central Park on Tuesday in an effort to ease some of the strain on the city’s hospitals that have been bombarded with COVID-19 patients.The field hospital in New York City is comprised of 14 tents and will receive patients first from Mount Sinai Brooklyn and Mount Sinai Queens. Brooklyn and Queens have been the hardest-hit boroughs in the city’s outbreak, according to data released by the city.Doctors, nurses and other medical personnel will be on site, according to the evangelical Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse, which helped construct the makeshift hospital.Volunteers from local churches also helped to build the field hospital, according to the group.“People are dying from the coronavirus, hospitals are out of beds and the medical staff are overwhelmed,” Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, said in a statement. “We are deploying our Emergency Field Hospital to New York to help carry this burden.”Construction at the site began on Sunday.New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio applauded Samaritan’s Purse for its help and said New Yorkers should expect to see similar efforts as the pandemic continues.“We’re going to be using every place we need to use to help people … so this is the kind of thing that you will see now as this crisis develops and deepens. The partnership with Central Park Conservancy, our Parks Department and the mayor’s office — we all worked together to get this done with Mount Sinai and Samaritan’s Purse,” de Blasio told reporters Sunday.Samaritan’s Purse also offered help in Italy as hospitals there are overwhelmed with patients.Twenty-four hours after a field hospital opened in the Italian city of Cremona, the intensive care unit was full, according to the organization.Once a bed frees up, a new patient is immediately brought in.The Central Park field hospital will not be a walk-in center but rather take patients that are already at a Mount Sinai hospital.There are more than 66,000 cases of COVID-19 in New York, the most of any state in the country, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.Other temporary medical sites have also been approved to ease the burden of local hospitals. There is at least one temporary hospital in each of the five New York City boroughs.

My resources

first_imgMy resourcesOn 14 May 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Kevin Hogarth, director of international resourcing at Capital OnePublications I usually read Sunday papers especially The Sunday Timesand the Observer business sections. I find these give me a summary of the keybusiness issues of the past week and also preview the issues likely to arise inthe week ahead. There are also a number of interesting case studies ofbusinesses or business leaders. I find it difficult to find the time to read adaily paper so tend to pick up business news from the radio – Wake Up to Moneyon 5Live and Today Business Report on Radio 4. Books The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey) is wellwritten, easy to read and full of sensible ideas. The Paradox of Success (JohnR O’Neill) was very thought-provoking and especially useful for anyone involvedin working with individual executives or executive teams. It is also good froma personal development, renewal and work-life balance perspective. I have readlots of Handy’s books and I think The Empty Raincoat is the best. HumanResource Champions (Ulrich) – is pretty much the key HR guru so I get no prizesfor originality but is always worth reading or re-reading. Now Discover YourStrengths by Marcus Buckingham is a refreshing look at how we can improve ourperformance and that of the people who work for us by concentrating on what wedo well. TV I don’t get much time to watch TV and don’t really watch anybusiness programmes as I get all the information from the radio. Radio 5Live and Radio 4 are indispensable.
