Osborne says austerity is only option Tags: NULL Tuesday 17 August 2010 8:20 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp KCS-content GEORGE Osborne yesterday said he would not shy away from ambitious plans to slash public spending, insisting the economy would fall into a tailspin unless Britain’s yawning deficit is dealt with. The chancellor was attempting to take on critics – both in the Labour party and in the coalition government – who say the austerity measures could weigh on the economy’s growth prospects.He said: “To change course, put off dealing with our problems, be in denial about the scale of the deficit – is the surest way to disaster.” And he called on those who oppose his plans for the biggest fiscal tightening in a generation to offer an alternative instead of sniping from the sidelines. The Labour Party, which is in the process of electing a new leader, has failed to present its own plan for getting to grips with the deficit. Some leadership candidates back former chancellor Alistair Darling’s plan to halve the deficit in four years – a strategy that would have meant huge spending cuts – while others say the main focus should be on shoring up the anaemic economy. Despite his insistence that sharp deficit reduction is the only credible course of action, Osborne warned that he agreed with Bank of England governor Mervyn King’s prediction the recovery would be “choppy”. He said it was unrealistic to expect a “smooth ride” considering the scale of the economic crisis. The chancellor has staked his reputation on maintaining the country’s triple-A credit rating, but yesterday Moody’s warned Britain was still at risk of downgrade.Osborne’s defence came as it emerged the qualifying age for winter fuel payments could be raised in a bid to cut the welfare bill. Rather than being eligible for the annual handout at 60, people could have to wait until they are at least 66. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

SkyCity raises NZ$180m through share placement New Zealand-based casino operator SkyCity Entertainment Group has generated NZ$180m (£93.3m/€103.2m/US$115.8m) through a share placement, as part of a NZ230m equity raising. Casino & games 18th June 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: Oceania New Zealand New Zealand-based casino operator SkyCity Entertainment Group has generated NZ$180m (£93.3m/€103.2m/US$115.8m) through a share placement, as part of a NZ230m equity raising. The offering, which was fully subscribed, saw SkyCity place 72m new fully paid ordinary shares at a price of $2.50 each. SkyCity said that the share placing drew strong support from existing institutional shareholders and also attracted “significant” bids from other investors. Settlement of the placement is due to take place on 23 June for the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and the following day for New Zealand’s Exchange (NZX). SkyCity did not disclose how it would use proceeds from the placing, but did say the placement was in addition to a fully underwritten NZ$50m share purchase plan announced earlier this week, with the overall equity raising worth NZ$230m. Meanwhile, SkyCity has given notice of its intention to redeem all of its series 2015 bonds on 28 September this year. SkyCity said that, in agreement with the New Zealand Guardian Trust Company, the redemption price will be set at NZ$1.0280 per bond, calculated based on the weighted average trading prices of the bonds on the NZX over the 10 business days up to 17 June. This redemption payment will be paid to registered holders of the bonds on 28 September. SkyCity also noted that bondholders will still receive the next quarterly interest payment due on 28 June, as well as the September 2020 quarterly interest payment at the same time of the redemption payment. The double announcement comes after SkyCity last week announced that it was to return to normal operations at most of its casinos in New Zealand after the country’s government downgraded its novel coronavirus (Covid-19) alert to its lowest level. Earlier this month, SkyCity had said trading since the reopening of its casinos had been “encouraging”, but also warned layoffs would be necessary as the business restructures to focus on servicing a domestic customer base, with reduced international tourism.

The site is located in the northern area of Rancate, in a suburban and residential neighborhood, surrounded by houses and vines. The map has a very elongated and narrow shape (12.7m x 122.6m) and the size of the property imposes spatial limits that have been the guide for the design. The area of interest is mainly flat and well delimited to the north by the road (via Scèr) and on the sides by neighboring lots characterized by the presence of existing residential buildings.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe new Ca’ Ospiti house building (19.4×6.6 meters in the plan) takes shape from the desire to underline the existing conformation of the land and to make this feature a strength for the entire project. The volume is positioned close to the road to guarantee direct access, but at the same time, it is in close relationship with the surrounding landscape: trees of different species, a lawn, and a gravel path lined with flower plants surround the intervention.Save this picture!© Simone BossiSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Simone BossiThe building consists of 5 apartments of 45 sqm each consisting of a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a dining room with a living room. The space organization is very simple and functional: a central connecting staircase serves two apartments on each floor, while in the basement there is a cellar/technical room and an apartment to host friends and visitors. There are no unnecessary corridor areas.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe volume underlines the search for a pure and simple form, which springs from the surroundings and which relates to the place through a clear and legible language. The remarkable slope of the roof, the relationship between full and empty holes in the facade, and the use of refined materials determine a recognizable identity to the building.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThe new building has a hybrid structure: the base and the connecting staircase in exposed concrete, while all the walls and floors are made with prefabricated wooden elements. The facade finish is divided into exposed concrete in the lower part and masonry with bricks that characterize the ventilated facade in the upper part. The internal walls of the housing units are made of fir wood with a white glaze.Save this picture!© Simone BossiProject gallerySee allShow less8 Essential Skills for 21st Century DesignersArticles27+14 Apartment / Agora ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Area: 336 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs CopyHouses•Rancate, Switzerland Year: “COPY” Houses CopyAbout this officeStocker Lee ArchitettiOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookRancateSwitzerlandPublished on July 28, 2020Cite: “Cà Ospiti House / Stocker Lee Architetti” 28 Jul 2020.

Facebook Twitter Commentary: What Are We Going To Do With All This Grain? By Gary Truitt Home Commentary Commentary: What Are We Going To Do With All This Grain? What Are We Going To Do With All This Grain?When the USDA projected a whopping big corn and soybean crop for 2017 in August, most farmers and those in the grain trade scoffed. Very few really believed that yields were going to be that good. As the combines have started to roll, the expectations have been that yield monitors would prove the government wrong. So far, that has not happened. Soybean yields are coming in higher than most farmers, agronomists, and traders had expected. Early corn yields have been inconsistent, but have not shown a sustained downturn. While it is still too early to make any definitive conclusions, it is looking like the USDA may be closer to the mark than the rest of us. So this begs the question, what the heck are you going to do with all this grain?Both U.S. and world grain production has outpaced demand for the past 4 years, and the forecast is that this will continue for the foreseeable future. While this is good for the world’s consumers as food prices worldwide have fallen, it is not good for producers. It is estimated that U.S. net farm income this year will total $63.4 billion – about half of the earnings in 2013. For many corn and soybean farms in the Midwest, this will be the third or fourth year that there will be no profit from farming. The Rural Mainstreet Index, compiled by Nebraska’s Creighton University, fell to its lowest level of the year last month, as farmland prices declined and agriculture equipment sales were dismal.The surplus issue is not confined to the grain sector. Dairy producers have continued to increase production at a faster pace than consumption, or even processing capacity. National milk production is increasing faster than the processing capacity. Per capita consumption of fluid milk has been steadily falling for some time because of competition from other beverages and because the share of the nation’s total population who are children continues to decline. Overall, U.S. milk consumption is rising between 1 and 2 percent annually on average, but production is going up around 3 percent.Is the intensive, high tech, big production, commodity crop model that U.S. agriculture has been built on since the end of WWII, no longer viable? A recent summit at Purdue examined how farmers can participate in a more local or regional food system. Technology is proving that an internet-based food distribution model outside of the traditional grocery store is possible. Such developments would be extremely disruptive to the current system. Yet, given the bleak profit picture for farmers, these alternatives might look attractive.The future is also likely to produce some serious competition for U.S. farmers. Canada, a major producer of wheat and canola, may become a major corn producer. Monsanto is developing a corn hybrid with a very short maturity range that can grow in the shorter season of our neighbors to the north. Monsanto estimates that Western Canadian corn plantings could multiply 20 times to 10 million acres by 2025 – adding some 1.1 billion bushels, or nearly 3 percent to current global production. Russia could also get into corn production, with increased acres in the Ukraine and other regions.According to Reuters, “World ending stocks of total grains – the leftover supplies before a new harvest – have climbed for four straight years and are poised to reach a record 638 million tons in 2016/17, according to USDA data.” This is more than enough to survive a drought or other regional calamity. SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 2, 2017 On the bright side, China, the world’s largest economy, says they want to start putting corn-based ethanol in their gasoline. China, the world’s largest car market, consume 54 billion gallons of gas a year. Blending that with 10% ethanol would require about 50 million metric tons of corn. Bower Trading estimates this could increase corn demand by 2.2 billion bushels.The focus of research and technology has been on production, getting more bushels out of every acre at less cost and fewer inputs. As much effort now needs to go into finding new uses and new products that will help us use more of what we are so good at producing.

Some 15 people suspected of being members of the ruling party burst in, beat Nakitende and other people present, and smashed a camera belonging to the commercial TV channel WBS.The attorney general meanwhile announced on 10 November that the news media are no longer authorised to publish the declarations of assets and liabilities made by the country’s political leaders. He made the announcement a few days after two leading dailies published details of the assets of several ministers and presidential advisers which they got from the inspector general of government, with whom leading officials have to file their declarations. This had prompted a formal protest by the vice-president, who said newspapers should not be allowed to publish this information.

Realtor.com notes that Germany is already teetering on the brink of recession and the U.K. is facing unrest related to “Brexit”, while in the U.S., a rapidly escalating trade war with China is increasing fears. However, despite these risks, real estate should be safe, unlike in 2008.”This is going to be a much shorter recession than the last one,” predicts George Ratiu, Senior Economist with realtor.com. “I don’t think the next recession will be a repeat of 2008. The housing market is in a better position.”“There’s real reason we could talk ourselves into a recession,” Bearden notes.
