While Persimmon sold 4.5 per cent more homes last year, the firm said completions tailed off towards the end of 2010 amid a tough mortgage market and economic fears. “This scale of [mortgage] activity remains significantly below normal levels and reflects the much reduced risk appetite of mortgage lenders,” the firm said in a statement. The Bank of England yesterday echoed this sentiment, showing that mortgage approvals in January were around half the long-term average. Persimmon’s sales revenue last year rose 10.5 per cent to £1.57bn, as sale prices rose 5.7 per cent to £167,249. “We have always been a margin-focused business,” chief financial officer Mike Killoran told City A.M.. “We are keen to grow our margins and I think volumes for 2011 are probably going to be similar to where we left it in 2010.”Persimmon said 28 per cent of its sales volumes in 2010 were supported by shared equity schemes such as the government’s HomeBuy Direct programme that ended last summer, allowing first-time buyers easier access to the housing ladder. “We will continue to provide support for a little while yet, although what we are seeing in the market currently is that people are keen to take advantage of part-exchange offers,” said Killoran.

Forget buy-to-let! I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today to make a million

first_img 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. Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 31st May, 2020 Forget buy-to-let! I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today to make a million Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! After the recent stock market crash, investors may consider assets such as buy-to-let property to provide a steady return. However, while the outlook for the FTSE 100 is uncertain in the short term, over the long run the UK’s leading blue-chip index may produce significantly higher returns and increase your chances of making a million.FTSE 100 bargainsBuy-to-let property, as an asset class, has come under attack in recent years. The government has completely reorganised the tax regime for buy-to-let investors, removing many tax breaks and benefits investors previously enjoyed.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…Rental properties now also have to conform to tighter regulations. These have increased the cost of doing business for the average landlord. Meanwhile, rising property prices have hurt returns.Investing in the FTSE 100 has many advantages to owning rental property. Blue-chip stocks are even more attractive after the recent stock market crash.The stock market has experienced many booms and busts over the past few decades. On every occasion, the FTSE 100 has recovered from its trough to go on to make a new peak. And while the outlook for the global economy is uncertain in the short term, it’s likely the FTSE 100 will return to this pattern in the long run. To put it another way, after the recent market crash, the FTSE 100 may well go on to make a new all-time high.Diversification As such, now could be a great time to buy discount FTSE 100 shares. It’s unlikely you’ll time your purchase perfectly. Indeed, the coronavirus crisis is far from over, and there could be further economic pain ahead. However, in the past, buying a selection of stocks when they’re relatively cheap has always paid off as investor confidence has returned. It might take some time, but the same should happen this time around.That said, some companies may not survive. So, I’d focus on buying FTSE 100 companies with strong balance sheets and loyal customers as well as defensive products. This will put them in a strong position to benefit from the economic recovery over the next few years. It should also help them weather the coronavirus storm if it lasts for many months.It’s difficult to tell what sort of returns investors can look forward to over the next few years. But we do know that over the past century, UK equities have returned around 7% per annum on average. At this rate of return, I calculate it would take just 29 years to turn an initial investment of £100,000 into £1m with additional contributions of £250 a month.These are just average figures, and you may be able to generate significantly higher returns buying individual FTSE 100 equities at depressed prices. And, unlike buy-to-let property, investors can also achieve significant tax benefits owning stocks and shares inside an ISA or SIPP. 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.

Late Maro Itoje try wins Six Nations thriller

Subscribe to the print edition for magazine delivery to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. England would go on to concede 12 penalties through the game and there were fears that the crippling indiscipline of the previous three rounds was creeping back in. But England kept duking and, despite a little more disarray in the second half, the intent was still there. And in this one, you might permiss the use of “finishers” as England’s bench made telling contributions.France were unable to make significant inroads into the England 22 and in the closing minutes it was French indiscipline that allowed the hosts to set up an attacking platform deep in the opposition half. Redemption for @EnglandRugby. A fantastic performance and a hard-fought victory. #GuinnessSixNations #ENGvFRA pic.twitter.com/zXlEzfQxT3— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) March 13, 2021England’s last try was fine reward for their efforts. With Will Stuart picking and going, the next phase left a ball there in front of Itoje, who added momentum. Picking and plunging for the line, he took Cameron Woki over with him. Was it held up? No, said TMO Joy Neville, and referee Andrew Brace gave the try.France still had a chance to score at the end – and if they had won it with their last breath we would most likely declare this one of the greatest Six Nations matches of all time – but the mistake came from the unlikeliest of sources as Dupont knocked on.England have their big win in this Six Nations. France’s chance of a Grand Slam evaporates. And we have a great game to look back on.center_img It all started at a lick, as star scrum-half Antoine Dupont scored after 65 seconds. But England responded immediately through Anthony Watson.With England under the shadow of the French posts, the ball made it to George Ford, who slung it wide to Watson. France’s Teddy Thomas – who had made Dupont’s score possible with a canny chip ahead – flew up, and the England star had a clear run-in.The first half also gifted us another cracking try, as a fantastic set-piece move from France led to Damian Penaud scoring.From a whip-smart lineout move over the top, Gael Fickou passed back inside to Dupont. He found Matthieu Jalibert and a looping ball made it over to the wing. The try made it 17-13 in France’s favour and some will have been wishing that, just for today, half-time was abolished. Late Maro Itoje try wins Six Nations thrillerThis match was a double shot in the arm for rugby. From start to finish, it was thrilling as England and France went at it in the Six Nations.And in the last few minutes it was that man Maro Itoje who crashed over to claim the victory for England. As the final whistle blew it was 23-20 for the hosts. Superlatives sloshed around as pundits and fans alike celebrated a game played at breakneck speed.

Photo: Diocese of Kadugli[Anglican Communion News Service] The only secondary school Umdorain County, in Sudan’s South Kordofan state, has been destroyed in ongoing fighting between government forces and the opposition Sudan People’s Liberation Army in the Nuba Mountains. Grace Secondary School, built by the Diocese of Kadugli in 2008, is one of a number of casualties of the ongoing conflict.The state was due to hold “popular consultations” on its future following the peace deal which saw the creation of an independent South Sudan in January 2011. But the state’s governor Ahmed Haroun (who, along with the Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes against civilians and crimes against humanity, cancelled the consultations, leading to ongoing violence.Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail of Kadugli, in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan, is asking Anglicans to pray for the people of the Nuba Mountains as they face ongoing violence with the continuing warfare between the two sides.“In grief, I am writing to bring to your attention the tragedy that our people in the Nuba Mountains are experiencing since mid-March up to the present,” he said in a letter published in the diocesan newsletter Tabaldi.“People in the Nuba Mountains are experiencing brutal ground attacks and aerial bombardment on a daily basis from the Sudan Armed Forces . . . who have been fighting the Sudan People’s Liberation Army . . . since the year 2011; causing a loss of many lives and destruction of property.“The situation of the people has become more difficult with the recent intensification of aggression on the civilian population that started since mid-March 2016 to this month of April. This scale of the war has spread all over the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile Regions. . . As a result, our Diocese of Kadugli is divided into two parts: some of its churches fall in the area controlled by the Government of Sudan, and others in the SPLA controlled areas.”Three thousand government troops were sent to the Karakaria area and the surrounding villages, including Ekwartang, the village where Andudu was born and raised. “They killed and drove people away [and] occupied the villages for six days before the Sudan Liberation troops defeated them and drove them out of the villages,” he said. “But the Sudan Armed Forces left nothing in the villages.”The bishop said that more than 22 civilians were killed during the attacks around Karakaria; many people are still missing. The troops burnt almost all the houses and two churches in the area. Another one was shot at from the inside, and all the iron sheets on the roof were destroyed.The troops destroyed Grace Secondary School with bulldozers. Sorghum crops, sesame, and ground nuts harvested over the last year were burnt. Civilians are currently left in open spaces, rivers, valleys and in caves on the mountains; and facing challenges to cope with the situation. Their plight is expected to deteriorate as the rainy season is expected to begin soon.“At the moment there is no humanitarian assistance by international NGOs or the UN agencies to assist the people in need [because] the government of Sudan . . . expelled and banned all humanitarian agencies,” the bishop said.Andudu, who says he is receiving bad news almost every day, is calling for prayers for the people in the Nuba Mountains and other places experiencing war.“Pray for peace, that God stops the bloodshed of innocent people. I still believe in prayers and good negotiation strategies, peace will prevail,” he said. The bishop also asked for prayers for financial support so that they can buy food for “the people who lost everything and are already experiencing hunger, especially families with children and elderly people.” Rector Knoxville, TN Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Prayer call over Nuba Mountains warfare Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Jonny Wilkinson raring to go for Toulon and England

first_imgFriday Aug 14, 2009 Jonny Wilkinson raring to go for Toulon and England The great man is back. Tonight, Jonny Wilkinson will confidently stride out for his new club Toulon in the French Top 14 as they take on Stade Francais in the opening match of the new season.Wilkinson, now 30, has had a large part of his career wiped out due to a string of bad injuries. Hes back now though, and with his new club comes a new lease on life.Wilko feels hes yet to reach his true potential, and is hoping that this is the season that hell achieve the heights he feels hes capable of.“I feel I have spent my life playing it safe, not allowing the unknown,” said Wilkinson.“If I operate between six and eight I will always be okay because sometimes when you push for 10, you open up the door to drop to a four.“But I don’t want to finish my career and say, ‘I did okay, I operated within myself and well done me’ – now I want to push for 10.”Back in the mix with his national side, Wilkinson spent the past few days with the England training camp, and hopes to be a part of the November internationals that will truly signal the return of one of the best flyhalfs of the modern era.Two questions need to be answered before that can happen though. Will Jonny stay injury free for the entire season? And will he reach the kind of form that makes him the best once again?Time will tell.

The site is located in Kanagawa Prefecture on a mountainside that overviews a sea and a city. The client couple, who are friends of mine, and I visited there, when the project was initiated. Walking around in the pre-project site, where too many tall trees stand on, views changed variously, because of the slanted land’s height differences. The experience was comparable to a pleasure of wandering in a forest. Taking a walk on a hillside or feel like so even inside the house had become a concept and we went on to continue the project, taking the slope positively.

After that, we put these places to individual volumes, converted them to wooden masses and shaped them, conforming to each site shape and condition, as if carving sculpture. The lateral of the road and the north surface are positioned parallel to the site boundaries, and the east surface, where the kitchen is, is slanted toward the south in order to let light in. The face of the living space is slightly inclined toward the north, so as to avoid seeing the neighborhood’s building. As a result, gradually overlapping each other, the four masses were formed into one shape.

First of all, we produced a path that possesses comfortable straight eyesight, analogous to walking between trees. The path connects the inside and the outside, and again backs to the inside without a dead-end. A bridge becomes a part of the journey. On the finishes of the floors, various kinds of wooden floor that were chosen to match the assorted atmosphere are laid like carpets. In the center of a concrete floor that meets the ground, thin trees are arranged so as to look like a path between rice paddies.

The traces of the thoughts and processes appear remarkably. In the interior of the building that was shaped to fit the landform, walls set in diverse angles, various ceiling heights and ten different floor levels exist and in the each space dissimilar shades live. The wind that enters inside the one-room interior space feels like they came between trees, and it feels like sitting on a natural stump, when sitting on a slight level difference.Save this picture!© Daici AnoProject gallerySee allShow lessCapture the Rain / H3ARArticlesAD Round Up: Green Roof Part IIIArticles Share CopyAbout this officeShun Hirayama ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesJapanPublished on March 12, 2010Cite: “Les Aventuriers / Shun Hirayama Architecture” 12 Mar 2010.

Purdue Economist: Summer Gas Prices to be Stable – If…

first_img By Andy Eubank – May 21, 2012 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Purdue Economist: Summer Gas Prices to be Stable – If… Home Energy Purdue Economist: Summer Gas Prices to be Stable – If… SHARE Previous articleAlmost all Indiana Corn PlantedNext articleCME Group Expanded Trading Begins Andy Eubank Gasoline prices this summer could stay relatively steady provided that an already-tense Middle East doesn’t flare up and nothing else happens to disrupt supplies, a Purdue University economist says.As long as market conditions remain basically as they are now, gasoline likely will remain between $3.50 and $4 per gallon in Indiana, said Wally Tyner, an agricultural and energy economist. Because regional variability in gasoline prices has increased, motorists in California and much of the West Coast can expect to see prices above $4 for most of the summer, and the South and Southeast below $3.65.But Tyner cautions that global instability and disruptions in supply could force prices upward.As always, the political situation in the Middle East and U.S. relations with Iran will play a large part in what motorists pay for gasoline.“Any disturbance in the Middle East or heightening of tensions with Iran could move crude oil up,” Tyner said, “and that would send gasoline higher.”Supply can be interrupted by bad weather, such as hurricanes or tsunamis, or refinery or pipeline outages for other reasons. These can occur domestically and overseas. When they do happen, they often temporarily drive prices up until the disruption subsides, Tyner said.On the other hand, sluggish economic growth, an increase in crude oil production and higher-than-normal crude oil stocks could bring prices down.Recent developments in the economic crisis in Greece and an apparent slowdown in China’s economy could be important to summer’s gasoline prices.“Economic growth or lack thereof is a major determinant of demand for gasoline,” Tyner said. “If growth is slower, gasoline prices will be lower. Growth has slowed in China and in Europe. If that slowdown continues, it would put downward pressure on crude oil and gasoline prices.”Crude oil production worldwide has increased recently beyond global demand, a situation that would drive gas prices down. As production increases, crude oil stocks build to above-normal levels, which also could cause oil prices and, therefore, gasoline prices, to decrease.If none of these situations occurs, prices will remain steady, Tyner said.“While we cannot say how any of these factors will play out in the months to come, they are the key things to watch to determine where the pump prices will go,” Tyner said. “If these factors remain pretty much as at present, pump prices will do the same.”Source: Purdue Ag Communicationslast_img read more

Students encouraged to visit new Asian artifact exhibit at Kimbell

first_imgTwitter Twitter Linkedin Kristen Notohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kristen-noto/ Facebook printThe Kimbell Art Museum’s latest exhibit is the U.S. debut of a major collection of Asian artifacts.Some of the items in the “Lands of Asia” exhibit date back to the Neolithic era.The pieces include numerous kimonos, carved pieces of Jade, Buddhist sculptures, porcelain, and ivory from the Sam and Myrna Myers Collection.Amida Buddha, JapanKamakura, 1185-1333(Photo courtesy of Thierry Ollivier.)“Having known Sam and Myrna since 1997 when they traveled with me on a trip to India, Sam called me three years ago to ask if the Kimbell would be interested in hosting the exhibition, and I said yes!” said Jennifer Casler Price, the Kimbell’s curator for Asian and non-Western art.The exhibit has over 400 pieces that have been brought from Europe.Sam and Myrna Myers lived in Paris, France for more than 50 years and have amassed a collection of over 5,000 pieces from China, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Central Asia and Tibet.“I would definitely recommend that students come to view the exhibit because we do not often get exhibits this large, considering it has over 400 pieces,” Alyssa Underwood-Surles, the Kimbell’s visitors’ services associate, said.Caroline Smith, a senior communication major, said she was fascinated with the kimonos.“My favorite part about the entire thing were the kimonos when you first walked in,” Smith said. “The kimonos were very detailed and large, which made them really stand out to me.”Vase, China, Ming dynasty (1368-1644), 16th century, (Photo courtesy of Thierry Ollivier.)The exhibit is on display in the Renzo Piano Pavilion from March 4 to Aug. 19.Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors ages 60 and over, $12 for students with valid identification, $12 for children between the ages of 6 and 11 and free for both Kimbell members and children under the age of 6.Students are encouraged to visit before the exhibition ends.“This is an extraordinary opportunity to see a vast panorama of Asian art from different cultures and a range of different objects and material: textiles, porcelains, Jades and Buddhist icons, just to name the four main sections,” Price said. “I feel there is something for everyone to respond to in this exhibition, and certainly a lot to discover, explore and learn.”“The exhibit succeeds in presenting two narratives in parallel—telling both the story of the individual works, as well as the story of how they came to be a part of this collection.” @FortWorthWeekly https://t.co/ybYAQ7pEtN #LandsofAsia #MyersCollection pic.twitter.com/hk7zuIQix5— Kimbell Art Museum (@KimbellArt) March 22, 2018 ReddIt Facebook Rate My Professor site effects some students enrollment decisions Kristen Noto is a fashion merchandise major with a minor in journalism from Chicago.
