The first is due to open in Abu Dhabi in 2012.The group was part of an extensive portfolio of British businesses backed by Baugur before it collapsed, with Baugur’s 33 per cent stake reverting to fellow Icelandic bank Landsbanki. DEPARTMENT store group House of Fraser yesterday reported a 22 per cent rise in half-year earnings thanks to its own-brand ranges.The company said earnings reached £13m after a 5.5 per cent rise in sales to £480.6m.House of Fraser, the third-biggest department store chain in the UK, said its online sales were also forging ahead.The performance in the six months to 31 July was boosted by a 62 per cent rise in sales of the group’s house brand and a 150 per cent increase in online sales.Sales at stores open at least a year rose by 8.4 per cent, and were up 10 per cent in the first seven weeks of the second half.Chief executive John King is adding more own-brand products, including the revived 1960s “Biba” womenswear label. The idea is to offer cutting edge fashion at afordable prices.Own-brand items account for 11 per cent of total sales and the company aims to lift that percentage to as much as 40 per cent.King said: “We clearly are very encouraged by the strong demand for our House Brands from our customers, and particularly pleased with the recent launch of Biba.” Wednesday 22 September 2010 7:39 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Midweek Madness – The Ebersohn Tumble

first_imgWednesday Feb 18, 2009 Midweek Madness – The Ebersohn Tumble With the San Diego leg of the IRB Sevens having ended this past weekend in the USA, weve come across a quick funny that we thought would be well worth sharing for those of you who like to see some of the more unique goings on in the rugby world.ADVERTISEMENTThis years tournament produced a whole host of surprising results, which is in essence one of the best things about Sevens rugby everyone has a chance of pulling off an upset on the day.In this particular match it was home team the USA who took it to the Springbok sevens side in the hope of impressing the local fans.They did just that, as they led the match for some time, giving the Bok side a real scare before the experienced visitors won 15-14 in a close and exciting match.This comical moment happened shortly after kickoff though, as young Bok flyer and Grey Bloem high school sensation Robert Ebersohn showed us an example of his athleticism after being ankle tapped from behind.Ebersohn, who made his Currie Cup debut last year at the age of 19, is a sure thing for higher honours in the upcoming years. Along with his twin brother, Sias, the two of them made a huge impact at high school level, with Robert since having made the step up, featuring strongly on the Sevens scene.Remember the name, as youll hear it a lot more in the future, preferably for quality rugby action though, not amusing forward rolls during play.ADVERTISEMENTTime: 01:03 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The house stretches between two existing hills on the site; forming a threshold to the views of the meandering river and nature preserve beyond. The lower level is expressed as a series of stone clad walls that extend into the landscape and the upper level is a sleek box with a metal roof that floats on slender columns.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxA wall of black-stained cedar boards marks the main entry and extends through the house into a double-height space with a floating stair. Cantilevered wood stair treads lead to the upper level and main living pavilion where full-height walls of glass reveal panoramic views of the nature preserve and New York peak. The living room, dining room and kitchen occupy the center of the linear floor plan, with a master bedroom suite to the west and a family room and outdoor courtyard to the east. A fireplace clad in Vals quartzite forms the western edge of the living room with a large skylight above. A reading alcove with a bench of wood slats is lined with Douglas fir panels and stainless steel shelves for display of the owner’s photography collection.

The house was in a state of disrepair and priority was placed on upgrading and creating an open plan ground floor family space. The existing lean-to conservatory was demolished to allow for a new side extension. Nimtim introduced a double height internal courtyard to the center of the house with a glass block wall to one side and an opening roof light above.Save this picture!© French + TyeSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© French + TyeThis space acts as a focal point for the entire house, organizing and choreographing the spaces around it: bringing light and ventilation to the parts of the house that might otherwise be dark and airless. The courtyard is expressed differently; borrowing materials from the garden to distinguish it from the living spaces, reinforcing its identity as a conceptually external space. Cost effective and robust materials, more often associated with industrial rather than domestic architecture, are used to create a quality of warmth and lightness.Save this picture!© French + TyeThe structural walls of the extension are all built in grey cement block with exposed aggregates – matte on the outside and polished internally. The sand-blasted glass blocks create a diffused light internally and emphasize the translucency of the space. These glow at night from the internally lit space, illuminating and breaking up the exposed side flank wall. European Oak flooring, terracotta tiles, and the soft pink concrete kitchen worktops also add warmth and an ethereal quality to the interior space.Save this picture!© French + TyeSave this picture!Section A – Existing and ProposedUse of contrasting materials, such as the earthy texture of the oak and terracotta used for the floor and light bright materials, such as glass and polished concrete blocks used for the envelope, work together to form a harmonious and contemporary palette. At the rear, a large face-fixed sliding door allows most of the rear elevation to open out onto the new garden. The project has created a new family home that is bold and honest in its use of materials whilst retaining a sense of warmth and domesticity which the clients and their young children have embraced.Save this picture!© French + TyeProject gallerySee allShow lessLumion 9: Rendering Living Environments for Real BeautyArticlesBENFERRI Multifunctional Building / Rafael Landete + Emilio CortesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/904654/block-house-nimtim-architects Clipboard Structural Engineers: Architects: nimtim architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Area:  52 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Year:  ArchDaily CopyHouses•United Kingdom Photographs:  French + Tye Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Block House / nimtim architectsSave this projectSaveBlock House / nimtim architects United Kingdom Blue Engineering Manufacturers: Fineline Aluminium, Forticrete, Alhambra Tiles, Glass Block Technology, Mortise Concrete JTN Construction 2018 “COPY” Main Contractor: CopyAbout this officenimtim architectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUnited KingdomPublished on November 05, 2018Cite: “Block House / nimtim architects” 05 Nov 2018.

Guardian Christmas Appeal includes online reverse auction

first_img Guardian Christmas charity appeal logo To make it even more attractive, each of the 40 iPods and 10 TVs are available in a separate auction, and each auction has a limited number of bids allowed. The odds are therefore very good for each bidder: each time an iPod auction reaches 120 bids, a winner is selected. For the LG TV, it is one winner for each 800 bids. The bidding is being conducted in partnership with online auction service Auctionair Limited. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

It’s a good example of the the win-win principle, and of a charity appeal offering an incentive to donors.The reverse auction requires bidders to pay £5 for each bid: the lowest unmatched bid gets the item. So, in theory you could bid as little as £1 and, provided that is the lowest bid and no-one else matches that bid, you could walk away with one of the two items. Advertisementlast_img read more

Children in Need offer Tiny Terry desktop buddy BBC Children in Need are offering supporters a pop-up “Tiny Terry” (Wogan, of course) to help keep them up to date with this year’s appeal. The free download of a pixellated Wogan generates an animated Terry Wogan on users’ desktops, providing they are using Windows PCs.The pop-up Tiny Terry will generate a small pop-up window of the latest news of the BBC Children in Need Appeal. In addition, users can make the animation dance, forward it to a friend. They can also review past messages, all of which contain a prominent call to donate, and click through to the Children in Need website, or to the online donation page.Unlike the real Mr Wogan, you can make Tiny Terry disappear in an instant, whether permanently or in snooze mood, ready to appear in 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.When in snooze mode, an icon of the charity’s mascot Pudsey Bear sits in the system tray, ready to be double-clicked.Comic Relief used a desktop buddy earlier this year in the form of The Nose. Indeed, both charities have used the same firm to create their buddy, Skinkers.com.Desktop buddies offer an alternative method of reaching supporters and keeping them up to date. Together with email newsletters, blogs and RSS feeds, they can help drive traffic and generate responses on a regular basis.

Farm Bureau Supportive of Food Labeling Proposal

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Supportive of Food Labeling Proposal Farm Bureau Supportive of Food Labeling Proposal Previous articleIndiana Ethanol Plant Manager Finds Misconceptions in WashingtonNext articleUSDA Accepting Applications for 2015 Export Development Program Funding Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Food labeling actRepresentatives Mike Pompeo of Kansas and G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina introduced the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act last week. The legislation would clarify the Food and Drug Administration has the authority on the use and labeling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients.One of those supporting the act is Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock who told HAT it would eliminate a logistical nightmare for food companies by avoiding a patchwork quilt, state by state approach.“With FDA involved I do think that brings more certainty to the scientific debate about GMO’s. I think it’s important that a well respected institution clarifies what the issues truly are and really gives certainty to the market of what labeling requirements are needed so consumers can make the choice. We in agriculture are really about choice.”After decades of use and research, Villwock says it’s clear that biotechnology in food is safe.“It’s probably one of the most studied food issues in our lifetimes and one that all of science continually points to being a safe product for consumers that actually does good things for the environment and lowers the cost for those that really can’t afford to pay for higher priced foods.”Kansas Farm Bureau member and farmer Stacey Forshee (pictured with Pompeo) traveled to Washington for the introduction of the bill. Forshee says biotechnology is a great tool for farmers and the environment, and she believes this legislation will create an important conversation with consumers on a national level.“The introduction of this bill will hopefully help people understand GMOs have been proven to be safe. There’s not been a study yet that has proven that any different.Eighty percent of the foods on the grocery store shelves are already made from products that have GMO in them. I believe that with the extra testing that those foods would have to go through, that they would rest assured that it is 100 percent safe.The American Farm Bureau Federation believes affirming FDA’s role will assure consumers about GMO safety.Source: AFBF By Andy Eubank – Apr 16, 2014 SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

CitiGroup’s profits rose 2% year over year, while Goldman Sachs saw a 13% decline, below analyst’s expectations.“We are pleased with our performance in the first quarter, especially in the context of a muted start to the year,” Goldman CEO David Solomon said in the release. “Our core businesses generated solid results driven by our strong franchise positions. We are focused on new opportunities to grow and diversify our business mix and serve a broader range of clients globally.”Goldman Sachs’ real estate lending declined from Q4 2018, but increased year over year in Q1 2019. Meanwhile, CitiGroup reported a slight increase in mortgage lending, both year over year and quarter over quarter in Q1 2019.“Our earnings reflect the progress we are making to improve our return on and return of capital,” said Citi CEO Michael Corbat in a statement. “Both our consumer and institutional businesses performed well and we saw good momentum in those areas where we have been investing, such as U.S. Branded Cards, Treasury and Trade Solutions, and Investment Banking. Importantly, our strategy in North America consumer banking is showing good early results as we introduce new products and engage with a broader range of customers, through digital channels.”Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase released their respective Q1 2019 earnings on Friday, with both banks exceeding expectations.“In the first quarter of 2019, we had record revenue and net income, strong performance across each of our major businesses and a more constructive environment,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase in a statement. “Even amid some global geopolitical uncertainty, the U.S. economy continues to grow, employment and wages are going up, inflation is moderate, financial markets are healthy and consumer and business confidence remains strong.”JPMorgan Chase’s home lending net revenue was $1.3 billion, up from the previous quarter by down 11% year over year, driven by lower net servicing revenue. Wells Fargo’s mortgage banking income was $708 million, up from $467 million in fourth quarter 2018, and the production margin on residential held-for-sale mortgage loan originations increased to 1.05%, from 0.89% in the fourth quarter.
