Manufacturing production was up 4.9 per cent on the year, while the monthly rate held steady at 0.3 per cent. The wider industrial production measure also grew 0.3 per cent in July on the previous month, taking the annual growth rate to 1.9 per cent. But while economists cheered the upbeat manufacturing figures, they warned that the sector was likely to run out of steam in the third quarter.Andrew Goodwin, senior economic adviser to the Ernst & Young ITEM?Club, said: “We are likely to see activity cool as the second half of the year progresses, as the boost from firms rebuilding their stocks begins to fade and the pace of the global recovery slows. But this doesn’t mean that a double dip is a prospect, rather a period of slower, patchy growth.”Goodwin added that the strong annual growth rate must be put in context of the 15 per cent fall in manufacturing output during the recession. “It looks like it will take another three years for the sector to regain previous peaks,” he warned. Economists also pointed to the timelier purchasing managers’ surveys, which show weaker expansion. “Should the surveys continue to soften over the coming months, there would be a real danger that the industrial recovery grinds to a complete halt in the fourth quarter and beyond,” says Capital Economics’ Jonathan Loynes. last_img read more

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games Organisers announce $55 million surplus

Lee Hee-Beom had made the announcement at the International Olympic Committee session in Buenos Aires yesterday (Monday).

In recognition of these great achievements, the IOC will contribute its share of the surplus for the benefit of sport in Korea,” IOC President Thomas Bach said.POCOG is yet another example of Organising Committees breaking even or creating a surplus that can be used for the development of sport in the host nation. Its ability to create a surplus was assisted by the implementation of Olympic Agenda 2020 and the philosophy behind its New Norm, states an article on the official IOC website.Despite the fact that POCOG was already well into its preparations when Olympic Agenda 2020 was approved, by working with the IOC in a spirit of partnership, the Korean organisers were able to benefit from cost-reducing or revenue-increasing measures such as the first turnkey solution delivered by the IOC to a Games organiser with the Olympic Information Service; 30,000 accredited seats being given back for public sale; no secondary “mountain” International Broadcast Centre (IBC), a 30 per cent smaller IBC; and a Main Press Centre that was moved to an existing structure, all while preserving the athlete and spectator experience.Any surplus from the organisation of the Games is normally divided between the IOC, the Organising Committee and the host National Olympic Committee for the benefit of sport and the Olympic Movement.Also Read: Pyeongchang 2018 leave Gangwon Province with “massive debts”: ReportFor Tokyo, both Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto and IOC Coordination Commission Chair John Coates spoke about how Olympic Agenda 2020/New Norm has now allowed Tokyo 2020 and its delivery partners to save USD 4.3 billion – USD 2.2 billion saved during the review of the venue masterplan and an additional USD 2.1 billion since the introduction of the New Norm at the IOC Session in PyeongChang earlier this year.The next Olympic Winter Games after PyeongChang will be held in Beijing, People’s Republic of China, and IOC Coordination Commission Chair Juan Antonio Samaranch described Beijing 2022 as achieving extraordinary milestones at an incredible speed. Beyond the legacy objective of bringing 300 million people to winter sport and its record-breaking marketing programme, Beijing 2022 has embraced Olympic Agenda 2020/New Norm by adopting this new way of working, for example by working more closely with the International Federations on venue and sport delivery or delivering only venues that fit into the long-term development plan of the region.Finally, the two latest Olympic hosts of Paris 2024 and LA 2028, presented to the IOC Session about their progress, which is based on the full implementation of Olympic Agenda 2020/New Norm. Chair of the IOC Coordination Commission for Paris 2024 Pierre-Olivier Beckers-Vieujant underlined how the new philosophy was permeating all aspects of the Organising Committee’s work. The spirit of co-construction is very much alive in Paris with, for example, strong International Federation support resulting in a better masterplan for Paris, which was approved by the IOC Executive Board last week, and the support of the National Olympic Committees in ensuring the delivery of an optimised Olympic Village that, like the venue masterplan, will leave a great legacy for the local population.On the side of LA 2028, Coordination Commission Chair Patrick Baumann explained that the co-construction of LA’s Games was well underway with the IOC, and that the tripartite agreement between the IOC, Paris 2024 and LA was already creating good opportunities to exchange ideas and look at synergies to define and implement a new model for Games delivery. Baumann also explained that LA had been granted the right to invest up to USD 160 million in youth sports in the years leading up to the Games, and that work was now underway with the City of Los Angeles and other key partners to identify the best mechanism of using these funds. However, in line with Olympic Agenda 2020/New Norm, LA 2028 will enter its operational phase only in a few years’ time.

Jabran Khan | Wednesday, 22nd July, 2020 | More on: WTB The Covid-19 pandemic has affected all of us in a way we probably never thought would or could happen. That’s very true for investors. But when a market crash occurs, there are opportunities to be had.  Whitbread (LSE:WTB) is the UK’s largest operator of hotels and restaurants. Its brands include Premier Inn, Brewers Fayre and Beefeater. I believe Whitbread could be a steal at its current bargain price.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…Market crash opportunityHotels and restaurants suffered massively when the government imposed a lockdown between March and June. The easing of restrictions and reopening of hotels and restaurants will have been welcomed by patrons and business owners alike.Whitbread’s share price has decreased by over 40% year to date due to the market crash. Its current per-share price is hovering near 2,300p. But this is better than its rock bottom 1,808p back at the height of the crisis in March. Things are looking up, with many of its hotels and restaurants now reopened and the remainder expected to reopen during this month and next. Its current price-to-earnings ratio sits at just over 17.Trading update and past performanceA Q1 trading update was released in early July. Whitbread confirmed that over 270 UK hotels and 24 hotels were open at that time. It took the lockdown as an opportunity to refurbish 13 new hotels and rebrand them as Premier Inn in Germany. It now has all 19 operational hotels open in Germany. Whitbread is attempting to replicate its UK success with Premier Inn on the continent, which could prove key in its future growth plans.Naturally sales figures were affected by the mass closures of its estate. But in June, Whitbread successfully completed a £1bn rights issue to maintain financial flexibility, which has strengthened its balance sheet. During the market crash, other companies have adopted similar strategies, which is understandable in unprecedented times, so this isn’t a concern for me.Back in May, Whitbread announced its latest full-year results. Despite seeing lower profit than the previous year, it still recorded over £350m worth of profit. An increase in revenue was a positive takeaway despite the report consistently pointing towards weak market conditions.My verdictWhat draws me to Whitbread is the fact that it possesses such a strong brand in Premier Inn. It also possesses the financial might to weather the storm from the market crash and continue to invest and grow Premier Inn, which is its primary business. As I mentioned earlier, the German expansion excites me, but it is not ignoring the UK market and continues to plan for further locations domestically.Whitbread utilised government support during the market crash, which I think was shrewd. Staff were placed on furlough where needed and the grace of business rates for a year saved it £120m. I feel that such an established business, with what I class as a top tier brand at the forefront of its offering, is a bargain at the current price. I foresee a rise in its share price as I believe market conditions will normalise over the coming months and next year. Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Jabran Khanlast_img read more

West Burn Lane is a private development of 14 housing units in the centre of St Andrews. It occupies a narrow plot, delineated by the medieval stone rigg walls that extend perpendicular to the main streets and consists of 6 town houses and 8 flats organised around a series of private and public court yards. We responded to the the following characteristics of the surrounding streetscape in the development of the project:-The linear pattern of Rigg plots that run perpendicular to the main streets-The distribution of small free standing buildings in amongst the gardens of the Rigg plots with clear space between, through which you can see daylight and vegetation.-The rhythm of recesses and doorways along the narrow lanes that reflect the slow process of development of the -Rigg plots over centuries.-The palette of natural materials that exists in the townSave this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirThe site is located within the St Andrews conservation area and the palette of materials was chosen with both the immediate context and the longevity of the scheme in mind. Fife District Council were very concerned about the use of ‘contemporary’ materials like brick within a Medieval, Georgian and Victorian context so we produced a number of sample panels prior to construction, testing different stone brick and mortar combinations, ultimately selecting Petersen D71 bricks for the upper storeys. Tooled sandstone has been used at the base in reference to the plot delineation of the tall rigg walls and the tones of the Petersen bricks above this datum complement that of the sandstone.Save this picture!Level 1 PlanDetailed Blurb:West Burn Lane is located in a conservation area in the historic centre of St Andrews and consists of 6no four bedroom houses and 8no two & three bedroom apartments. The buildings are organised as discrete volumes which address a series of public and private urban courtyards. They mediate between the tight-knit medieval urban grain and the scale of the surrounding university buildings and church hall, increasing in scale towards the south.Save this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirTaking cues from the historic rigg pattern of St Andrews, the buildings are tiered as the move down the lane; clear pends are maintained between which give sight to the sky and vegetation beyond and pick up the rhythm of doorways and thresholds in the historic stone walls of the Riggs. By alternating between two main house types within the narrow confines of the lane, the broad-fronted but narrow-depth and the narrow-fronted but deep plan, we were able to provide secluded private garden spaces between dwellings that have aspect to the south-east.Save this picture!SectionAt the southern end of the site where the lane opens up there is a larger scale building in keeping with the grander and more spacious context, where the apartments take advantage of the panoramic views to the south. Located between these elements are two maisonette blocks. These are set back to create a new piece of public realm around a mature tree, a courtyard offering amenity space and off-street parking but with enough room to the rear to allow for small courtyard gardens.Save this picture!© Keith Hunter, David WeirThere are seven house types being proposed within these three broad typologies.

Workers to sexist bosses: HANDS OFF!

first_imgWe have heard from Donald Trump’s own mouth his disgusting, unrelenting, unrepentant commitment to hating, degrading and sexually abusing women. It could be the last straw for his presidential campaign.Now, on to the other anti-woman, anti-worker bosses!That’s what Fight for $15 is saying and doing in a campaign against sexual harassment that began on Oct. 5 against McDonald’s, the fast food chain employing 1.9 million low-wage workers worldwide. Fight for $15 is best known for organizing to raise the minimum wage and secure a union for low-wage workers.Fast food workers are notoriously underpaid and overworked. Like a growing preponderance of U.S. workers, they are mostly young, largely women and people of color, often LGBTQ, perhaps with a disability, with fewer resources to fall back on if they lose their jobs. That makes them especially vulnerable to abuse of all kinds, including sexual harassment and rape.Research shows that fast food workers are 60 percent more likely to be sexually harassed than workers elsewhere. And 42 percent of them have had to endure that harassment for fear they’d lose their jobs if they fought back.Now these workers are saying: No more!Fifteen McDonald’s workers, under the banner of #Fightfor15, have filed charges against the burger chain through the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. They assert they were subjected to “inappropriate — and illegal — sexual contact, innuendo and propositions” while working for the corporation.Those abstract words mask the horrifying stories flooding in, overwhelmingly from female workers, about managers who offered them money for sex or ignored their pleas when male co-workers showed them photos of their genitals. Needless to say, appealing to the “parent” corporation yielded no help.The struggle against sexual harassment and rape began millennia ago, when patriarchy arose at the same time as classes, and women and gender-nonconforming people were subjected to male ruling class privilege. In the U.S., sexual terror — and the fightback against it — has been a fact of working women’s lives, from enslaved African women to domestic workers, from farmhouse to assembly line, in blue collar, pink collar and white collar work, from South, North, East to West.It took a campaign as recently as the 1960s by women’s liberation and civil rights activists to get sexual coercion at a job recognized as “illegal.” That enabled workers to go to the federal EEOC for some protection.Now a new front of struggle has opened up at actual workplaces, as McDonald’s fast food workers in 30 cities picketed against sexual harassment at their job sites on Oct. 6.The class struggle is rapidly accelerating with the intertwining of working-class organizing, LGBTQ leadership, women’s liberation issues and the fight to make Black and Brown lives matter.Bosses, you are being served notice: No more grabbing. No more rape or sexual coercion. No more racism. No more LGBT-phobia. No more anti-people-with-disabilities.We mean it: We’re going to take your hands off our bodies and our lives!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
