Andrew Sentance is forecast to stick to his hawkish stance while two members may have voted for further QE. Names touted by economists include David Miles and Adam Posen.Meanwhile, annual inflation in the Eurozone accelerated in July to 1.7 per cent, the highest level since November 2008. It was boosted by a surge in energy price inflation and recent VAT hikes in Spain, Portugal, Greece, and Finland. BANK OF ENGLAND governor Mervyn King will be readying his pen this morning to write his second letter to chancellor George Osborne if annual inflation was, as expected, above three per cent last month.City economists expect headline consumer price index (CPI) inflation to ease to 3.1 per cent in July from 3.2 per cent in June, well above the Monetary Policy Committee’s (MPC) two per cent target. CPI has been consistently above three per cent for the whole of 2010 and the Bank of England was forced to revise upwards its inflation forecast at last week’s Inflation Report.Rampant inflation is unlikely to ease significantly in the coming months given the looming VAT hike and higher food prices. This has been cause for concern among MPC members with Andrew Sentance having voted twice to raise rates. last_img read more

Tim Schenck.En tanto otros episcopales pueden estar contemplando si renunciar al chocolate o a las bebidas alcohólicas, o considerando qué disciplina espiritual imponerse durante estos solemnes 40 días, Schenck se dedica a sopesar si Agustín o Lancelot Andrewes serían mejores contrincantes de Juana de Arco en un partido de santidad.En 2010, Schenck comenzó en su blog lo que bautizó como Locura de Cuaresma, una competencia en Internet de santos vs. santos que seguía el modelo del torneo de baloncesto universitario conocido por Locura de Marzo. La idea prendió y la locura se ha extendido para incluir a blogueros famosos y, este año, cuenta con su propia página web y página de fans en Facebook y esta asociado con el Movimiento Adelante (Forward Movement).Scott Gunn“Básicamente lo empecé como un antojo. Me encantan los deportes y me encanta la Cuaresma, y así fue que pensé: ¿por qué no combinar ambas cosas?”, dijo Schenck, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [St. John the Evangelist] en Hingham, Massachusetts.¿Por qué tendrían los fans del baloncesto toda la diversión, “mientras nosotros nos quedamos sentados sin hacer nada y renunciando al chocolate?”, razonó él. “La Cuaresma no es melancólica en lo más mínimo. ¿Qué puede ser más alegre que una estación reservada específicamente para acercarnos más a Dios?Asociándose con el Rdo. Scott Gunn, director ejecutivo de Forward Movement, Schenck ha creado un especie de torneo de categorías de eliminación individual de 32 santos distintos. Cada día la página web ofrecerá información acerca de una pareja de santos, y cada lector votará por el de su preferencia. Cada ronda de votaciones reducirá a la mitad los santos que compiten. De los 32 [iniciales] a la ronda de los Dieciséis Piadosos, los Ocho Regocijados, los Últimos Cuatro y finalmente dos que competirán por el codiciado Halo de Oro.En la primera ronda, los votantes recibirán una sencilla información biográfica acerca de los santos para ayudarles a decidir a quién han de favorecer. En el próximo nivel, los votantes leerán “citas y peculiaridades” acerca de los Dieciséis Piadosos. Y luego pasarán al ‘kitsch de la santidad” que es uno de mis preferidos”, dijo, Schenck. “En ese punto, imagínate que casi todos los participantes han aprendido algo acerca de los santos y han llegado a tener una idea de cuáles son aquellos con los que en verdad se identifican. Luego, podemos tener alguna auténtica diversión con eso a partir de ahí”.¿Un kitsch preferido de Schenck? “Clara de Asís es la santa patrona de la televisión porque, cuando se encontraba muy enferma para asistir a los oficios, éstos se le aparecían en la pared de su celda”.El año pasado, Schenck obtuvo el apoyo de cuatro “blogueros famosos” para que hicieran campaña por los santos en las rondas de los Últimos Cuatro y el Halo de Oro. Este año, ocho colaboradores de todo el ámbito de la Iglesia Episcopal participarán desde el comienzo, y se ocuparán de la mayor parte de la investigación y la redacción. “Estoy funcionando básicamente como un director técnico”, aclaró Schenck.Gunn – que ayuda con la tecnología y publicidad del torneo- se ha entusiasmado con Locura de Cuaresma desde el principio. El primer año llevó a cabo un intenso cabildeo (con éxito) para que George Herbert ganara el primer Halo de Oro, ya que el título de su blog, ‘Siete Días Completos [ Seven Whole Days] es tomado de un poema de Herbert que se encuentra en el Himnario de 1982. En 2011, ya se había convertido en un bloguero famoso autorizado. “Intenté desesperadamente que Tomás Beckett le ganara a C.S. Lewis -y perdí”.“Este año, por supuesto, estoy manteniéndome escrupulosamente neutral”, agregó.Lo mismo le ocurre a la colaboradora Heidi Shott, canóniga de comunicaciones y justicia social de la diócesis de Maine -al menos en la primera ronda. “Aparentemente, según nos adentramos, podemos mostrar nuestro verdadero pelaje”, dice. “Ya yo tengo mis preferidos”.Ella sí cuestionó la prudencia de enfrentar a dos de los santos escogidos por ella en la primera ronda. “No sé si es porque soy la madre de dos hijos, pero me asignaron [escribir] tanto de Mónica como de Agustín de Hipona, lo cual es un poco disparatado -poner a una madre contra su hijo y viceversa- pero, bueno, tengo muchísimo entusiasmo con esto”.Sus otras vidas santas registran los logros de Emma de Hawái y Enmegahbowh, cuya esposa también es “notable”, reveló Shott. (“Se sabrá más sobre ella en las rondas subsecuente -si Enmegahbowh consigue vencer a Tomás).Shott dijo que ella encontraba la “locura” educativa y divertida. “Puede enseñarnos muchísimo respecto a lo que significa la santidad más allá de un himnito que cantemos una vez al año. Es una excelente disciplina, y es divertido”.Schenck hacía notar que, “esto no es como la disciplina cuaresmal del abuelo, pero es una manera… de hacer que los santos adquieran vida para la gente. Cuan a menudo nosotros como Iglesia somos una especie de trampa que inmovilizamos a los santos en vidrieras emplomadas y en cuadros al óleo y en estatuas. Éste es un modo de recordarles a todos que fueron personajes reales”.En Forward Movement, Gunn dijo: “La Locura de Cuaresma nos brinda una oportunidad de relacionarnos con personas con quienes de otro modo no podríamos conectarnos” Y para sus lectores habituales, él agrega, “es una oportunidad de decir: viene muy bien sonreír en la iglesia. La prueba de la bondad de algo en la Iglesia no depende de cuán seriamente lo tome. Sino de cuánto contribuye a su desarrollo como persona, y la Locura de Cuaresma es realmente una manera divertida de lograr eso”.Ah, ¿Y respecto a hacer apuestas sobre los resultados?Bíblicamente hablando, los apóstoles sí hicieron un sorteo a la hora de elegir a Matías para reemplazar a Judas, explicó Gunn. “Se podría argüir que él es el santo patrón de las loterías. Pero nosotros, como comité ejecutivo de la Locura de Cuaresma, no condonamos el juego”.“Yo no creo”, apuntó Schenck, “que nadie se va a enriquecer con Locura de Cuaresma. “No creo que usted vaya a llamar a su corredor de apuestas en Las Vegas para indagar sobre, digamos, las oportunidades de Thomas Cranmer vs. Agustín”.“Sé de varios Canterbury Clubs [en recintos universitarios] que participan este año, y ya están haciendo sus predicciones”, agregó. “No creo que nadie esté realmente jugando para ganar dinero, per se, sino que están compitiendo con la salvedad de que si alguien gana realmente algún dinero lo donará, desde luego, a un fondo benéfico. Nosotros recomendamos Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales”.Los participantes también están comprometidos por el código del honor a votar sólo una vez por cada santo, no se permite ninguna politiquería sucia. “Sí, es verdad que los que compiten están muertos, pero no queremos que los muertos voten”, recalcó Schenck.Las votaciones comienzan el jueves 23 de febrero.Empecemos a jugar—Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

The Elephant House (Villa Kristi) / Vilen Künnapu

first_img “COPY” Projects photographs:  Arne MaasikPhotographs:  Arne MaasikSave this picture!© Arne MaasikText description provided by the architects. I met the lady of the Elephant House years ago in the gym of Viimsi SPA Hotel. Doing rowing exercises with ergometer, Kristi and I got talking and discovered we had many interests in common. The nice young lady worked as a doctor, but was also fascinated with everything alternative. Then Kristi vanished for several years and turned up again fairly recently. She phoned and said we were going to build a house. I met her husband Tarmo as well, a civil servant, whose interest in art and personal talent quickly made us firm friends. Save this picture!© Arne MaasikThe solution of the Elephant House largely rests on the initiative of the young clients with their extravagant wishes, my growing keenness on heavy, stronghold-like architecture and a need to produce colourful solutions. I remember that the clients sent me a picture of a weird house from a computer game, with mammoths, Gothic windows and technological screens. I was certain I was pretty crazy, but was I crazy enough to satisfy the clients? In the course of work, the mammoths were replaced with a sculpture of an elephant calf, the Gothic windows with elongated slits and a few curved windows. Travelling towards Maardu from Tallinn along the Muuga road, we come to the plot about a hundred metres from the border of Maardu. I drew a strong façade screen crosswise with the big road, which ends with a wall where a light blue little elephant welcomes the arrivals into town. The world behind the screen is divided into two. The lower part has the medical centre and the higher part is the residence for the couple and their two children. Save this picture!© Arne MaasikColours play an essential role in the solution. The main exterior colour is orange, supplemented in details by lemon yellow, light blue and pink. The interior is dominated by white, beige, yellow, orange, red, bluish-green and pink. The harmony of colours perfectly fits August Künnapu’s large-format paintings in the residence entrance hall and with smaller pictures in the doctor’s waiting room. In the centre of the waiting room is a sculpture designed by the current author, which I see as a time machine or a healing stupa. The walls around the stupa display three round pictures of cats, one picture of a doctor and a painting showing Brezhnev together with Tajik peasants (all by August). Save this picture!© Arne MaasikThe first floor of the residential house accommodates a hall, garage, gym and kitchen-dining room. The second floor has a living room, 3 bedrooms, an office and a stairwell with light coming from above, also presenting a few of my small sculptures and 2 pictures of the first sketches and watercolours of the house. The large bathroom has a round window opening into the stairwell and to the painting where a girl is taking off a stocking. These pictures have the air of the 1920s about them. I notice that the architecture of the house as a whole somewhat resembles a sense of Art Deco of the 1920s and 1930s. The tops of the New York skyscrapers, after all, constitute energy towers of a kind. Save this picture!© Arne MaasikWe can say that the entire elephant House is in a sense a time machine, which leads us into a parallel magic world. Or it could be a ship where the passengers take a long journey across the ocean called Life.

However, we also planned to leave some old materials in certain places.Save this picture!BeforeSave this picture!© Kenta KawamuraThe land was a flag-shaped area surrounded by other houses, so the client wanted to have more daylight and windows.

Howard Lake | 24 February 2006 | News Royal Mail prepares businesses for new Pricing in Proportion system Tagged with: Individual giving The Royal Mail has launched a direct mail campaign to help businesses across the UK prepare for the introduction of its new pricing system, Pricing in Proportion (PiP), which will have a direct impact on charity direct marketing.Packs providing information on the new pricing system, as well as advice on how companies can manage the impact of PiP, are being sent to nearly half a million small, medium and large businesses from this week. Charities received their tailored mailing on this issue in December 2005. Other tailored mailings have also been sent to the marketing, publishing, and home shopping sectors on the grounds that these, plus charities, will be most affected by the changes.
