THE London Stock Exchange (LSE) yesterday made public its opposition to government proposals to merge the UK Listing Authority (UKLA) with the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) arguing the move would deny the City a voice in Europe, reduce the capital’s competitiveness and ultimately cost jobs. “We care deeply about the competitiveness of the UK’s IPO market. Its regulation requires experience on a global scale, sophisticated real-time monitoring and response capabilities, and crucially, the ability to fight London’s corner in Europe,” said LSE chief executive Xavier Rolet. One City insider said concerns were widespread that the move was political and reflected difficulties within the coalition government with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills – which oversees the FRC – effectively grabbing power for business secretary Vince Cable. whatsapp KCS-content LSE warns on City threat Tags: NULL Share More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com Show Comments ▼ whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBridesBlushThis Is Why The Royal Family Kept Quiet About Prince Harry’s Sister BridesBlush Monday 13 September 2010 9:00 pm

City analysts expect industrial services provider Hargreaves Services (LSE: HSP) to pay dividends yielding in excess of 7%. The projection covers payments for the current trading year to May 2021 and the year following.They also expect generous double-digit percentage increases in earnings for those two periods. Meanwhile, in today’s half-year results report, the company revealed the disposal of its remaining coal assets for £24m. The post-period-end deal allowed the company to “eliminate bank borrowing”.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…A fair valuation and a high dividend yieldI like the strong balance sheet and the decent growth prospects. I think the diversified operations remaining look well placed to thrive in a world building back from the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, the valuation looks undemanding.With the share price near 270p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is around 10 for the trading year to May 2022 and the anticipated dividend yield is about 7.5%. The price-to-tangible-asset value is running near 0.7% and that could be a decent metric to follow because Hargreaves Services owns land.The company “controls” more than 13,000 acres of land across the UK and plans to realise “significant” value from the portfolio. One thing the firm does is to develop brownfield and derelict areas.But that’s not the only arm to the overall business. There’s a distribution and services division engaged in processing and distributing bulk materials such as solid fuels, wastes and minerals. And there’s a specialist earthworks division working on large-scale infrastructure projects in the UK.On top of that, the industrial services division provides materials handling, operation and maintenance. And electrical and mechanical engineering for the industrial sectors in the UK and Hong Kong.A cash-producing associateHargreaves Services also has a stake in an associate German company called Hargreaves Raw Materials Services (HRMS). That company is a “key” supplier of specialist raw materials to “major” European customers in the steel, foundry, smelting, non-ferroalloy, sugar, limestone, insulation, refractory and ceramic industries. And it was the HRMS joint venture that bought Hargreaves Services coal business.The directors explained in the report that the sale of the speciality coal stocks to HRMS “accelerated” the realisation of the £24m of cash from the coal inventory. But the deal also helps the growth of HRMS by “opening it up” to new markets in the UK.And HRMS contributes to the dividend returns on offer here. In today’s report, the company declared its intention to pay a 12p dividend from the German JV. That compares with the 2.7p interim dividend and there will also likely be a final payment for the year later.Today’s figures show reduced revenue and earnings and the company puts that down to the “impact” of delays to the HS2 rail project. But there’s a “strong” pipeline of contracted works, a “good” bank of land opportunities and an “increasingly valuable” investment in HRMS.Of course, further contract delays are possible and the pandemic could yet throw more challenges at the company’s operations. If projected earnings fall short of expectations, the valuation may end up being less attractive and the share price could fall from where it is now. Nevertheless, the stock tempts me. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!
[12 de septiembre de 2017] “Quizás no podamos solucionarlo todo, ni podamos hacerlo todo. Pero, pase lo que pase, algo podemos hacer”. Reflexión que nos ofrece Michael B. Curry, Obispo Presidente y Primado de la Iglesia Episcopal.Video sobre la reflexión el Obispo PresidenteA continuación compartimos la reflexión del Obispo Presidente:Sea el dolor causado por los acontecimientos del 12 de agosto en Charlottesville… o por el Huracán Harvey. O sea el Huracán Irma, o los incendios forestales en el oeste del país… o el terremoto en México. Ha habido mucho dolor, mucho sufrimiento y muchas dificultades. En momentos como éstos, es fácil sentirse agobiado. Es fácil sentirse agotado. Y es fácil sentirse abatido y darse por vencido. ¿Qué puedo hacer?Hay un pasaje en la Carta a los Hebreos, en el décimo capítulo, que dice:Recuerden los primeros tiempos, poco después de haber sido iluminados, en que tuvieron que soportar un duro y doloroso combate. A veces fueron expuestos públicamente a humillaciones y a veces, a persecución. Y a veces tuvieron que participar del sufrimiento de otros que fueron tratados de esta manera. Porque ustedes tuvieron compasión… por eso no pierdan ahora su resolución, que tendrá una recompensa grande. Es necesario que sean constantes en hacer la voluntad de Dios, para que consigan su promesa.Quizá no podamos solucionarlo todo, ni podamos hacerlo todo. Pero, pase lo que pase, algo podemos hacer. Podemos orar. Podemos aportar. Incluso, podemos inscribirnos para ir a trabajar. Podemos orar por quienes han sido afectados por los huracanes Harvey e Irma. Cuando oremos, incluyamos a las diócesis de Texas y de la región Occidental de Texas, la diócesis Occidental de Louisiana y oremos por las secciones de Louisiana que se han visto afectadas. Podemos orar por todos quienes se han visto afectados por el huracán Irma. Las diócesis episcopales que han sido afectadas son las Islas Vírgenes, República Dominicana y Haití, el sudeste, centro y sudoeste de la Florida, partes de Georgia y la costa del Golfo Central. Podemos orar por todos los habitantes de estas áreas. Podemos orar.Y podemos aportar. Podemos aportar al Fondo de Huracanes de la Agencia Episcopal de Socorro y Desarrollo. Nuestras donaciones se convierten en ayuda real, en ayuda estratégica. Y en realidad representan una diferencia. Y quizás, podemos inscribirnos para trabajar. Podemos inscribirnos para trabajar de forma voluntaria a través de la Agencia Episcopal de Socorro y Desarrollo. Y repito que todo está en la página en Internet, podemos inscribirnos y así darnos cuenta cuando se presenten oportunidades para hacer trabajo voluntario, y quizás podamos participar.No podemos hacer todo, pero algo podemos hacer. Podemos orar. Podemos aportar. Podemos ir a trabajar. Lo único que no podemos hacer es renunciar. La verdad es que semejante labor no la podemos hacer solos. Jesús en la gran Comisión, después de llamar a sus discípulos y pedirles que fueran a hacer discípulos de todas las Naciones, concluyó la Comisión diciendo “Y recuerden que yo estoy con vosotros siempre”.En la Oficina del Obispo Presidente hay un crucifijo que presensenta a Jesús sacrificando Su vida por la causa del amor en la Cruz. Es un crucifijo diferente. En este crucifijo, el artista esculpió a Jesús muriendo en la Cruz, donde la muerte representa un acto de amor, pero aún más que eso, Jesús está sosteniendo a alguien, a otra persona que tiene una profunda necesidad. Es un Jesús que se sacrifica y da Su vida, da Su vida por nosotros y por todos los que están en necesidad. Ése es el Señor al que seguimos, que resucitó de entre los muertos. Y no estamos solos.Dios los ama. Dios los bendice. Y que Dios nos proteja a todos con sus manos Todopoderosas. Amén.El Rvdmo. Michael B.

Exactly when and how sharp its leftward bend occurs will be critical in determining the exact location and timing of Dorian’s strike on the east coast of Florida or elsewhere in the southeastern U.S. Hurricane Dorian is forecast to intensify into a strong Category 3 hurricane and pose a major danger to the southeastern U.S., especially Florida, over Labor Day weekend. Dorian’s center is about 150 miles north-northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico, with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph.No hurricane watches or warnings in effect at this time, but they will likely be issued for parts of the Bahamas and Florida in the next day or two.

First floor: living area, kitchen/breakfast room, powder room, outdoor dining, garage. Second floor: master suite, family room/office, two children’s bedrooms, children’s bath, utility room. Save this picture!© Undine PröhlDesign Originally built in 1920s (at 600 square feet) and renovated by husband-and-wife architects in 1996 with second-floor addition, the house grew again in 2012 with the addition of a second lot, reconfiguration of public and private areas, and new garage and master suite. The resulting home now revolves around indoor/outdoor connections to the vast patio space with decorative and working gardens. The front volume maintains a refined lap siding as a signal to the house’s bungalow origins with a scale appropriate for the walk street, while the expressive back volume sports exaggerated vertical wood framing as sunshades to the glass master bedroom volume. “A house and its antithesis,” is how the architects/homeowners describe the relationship between the two elements. Save this picture!© Undine PröhlThe house slowly reveals itself along a walk street in Venice, CA, with the design juxtapositions foreshadowed by corresponding fences—a vine-covered traditional wrought-iron fence leads into an raw- wood rustic picket fence. The idea of “Cape Cod meets California Modern” is displayed in the varying rooflines that open the structure to natural light and create terraces for outdoor living. Public areas on the ground floor flow into each other and toward the outdoors. A new large sliding-glass door opens the lower level out to the generous plaza formed from linear concrete slabs with grass and pebbles interspersed. No-mow grass surrounds the front elevated entry porch, which begins the consistent black concrete-tile flooring that travels from outside through the first-floor living, dining, and kitchen areas, then back outside to the al fresco dining platform.Save this picture!© Undine PröhlMuted colors on the exterior are derived from the landscape and majestic magnolia tree on the property, while natural-wood trim further connects the structure to the landscape. Accessible openings—doors and operable windows—are trimmed in olive paint. The back volume addition encompasses garage and storage with glass-enclosed master suite above. Structural, vertical raw-wood framing is expressively placed around the glass volume. In additional to functionally acting as sunscreens, the beams connote a tree house and correspond to the picket fence in both materiality and attitude. Both front and back parts of the house are distinct on the ground floor—connected by the open-air dining terrace—while the upper- level, cement-board cladded “bridge” connection is more seamless from the interior, acting as a large, common space shared by the family. Save this picture!© Undine PröhlImmediately upon entering the home, one feels the senses of light and play. Window walls face the outdoor areas and clerestory windows express the changing levels. Standing in the entry living room, one can see clear through to the breakfast area, outdoor dining, and garage. The living room features built-in and free-standing custom benches upholstered in lively patterned fabric. The existing fireplace was re-clad in origami-like dark metal. Materials were chosen to express functionality, thus natural wood and plywood are used extensively, allowing family art and artifacts to add color and character. The open kitchen features a built-in banquette and breakfast table, sleek and simple white cabinetry, and plywood- covered exhaust hood above the working antique stove, which once belonged to noted architect Ming Fung’s mother (Smith and Clementi met at Hodgetts + Fung early in their careers). The custom butcher- block island unfolds to a playful Buffalo profile. Floor-to-ceiling plywood book and entertainment center leads to the heavy timber wood staircase.Save this picture!© Undine PröhlUpstairs, two bedrooms and a shared bath for the owners’ nine- and 16-year-old daughters are separated from the master suite by the “bridge”. Central to the bridge is the open family room—a hub of activity combining TV viewing, computer, and various other functions that mirror the family’s lifestyle. The flooring changes from wood to cork tiles beyond an olive-colored floor-to-ceiling door that opens to the master suite, which includes seating area, terrace, bath, and walk-in closets. A seven-foot-high plywood wall acts as headboard and privacy shield to the alley, while the CMU wall extends up from the garage below and then through the full-height glass wall to the outdoor balcony. Sliding and pocketing doors on two sides can be opened and closed as desired to manage degrees of openness. The hanging fireplace swivels to direct heat either toward the room or toward the balcony. The plywood storage wall is inset with red doorways leading into closets and the master bath. Open shelves allow a clear view into the bath, which may alternately by closed off by sliding the door all the way across. White cabinetry and positive/negative faux bois tile highlight the master bath. Save this picture!AxonObtaining the neighboring lot gave the owners the freedom to open the home up to the outside. “Even though we’re Modernists,” notes Frank, “the relationship to the outdoors in the previous renovation wasn’t sufficient.” Orienting views toward the existing 80-year-old Magnolia Grande Flora tree resulted in short vistas with long diagonals that afford views, light, and air. On the adjoining property sits an olive-colored house for Julie’s mother, who also collaborated on the landscape. Long troughs with growing vegetable are placed along the walk street.Project gallerySee allShow lessCentral Mosque of Pristina Competition Entry / Tarh O AmayeshUnbuilt Project70 Homes in Landy Sud / PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ArchitectsSelected Projects Share General Contractor: E2 Lighting Design Structural Engineering: CopyAbout this officeRios Clementi Hale StudiosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationExtensionVeniceHousesRefurbishmentUnited StatesPublished on May 01, 2013Cite: “Smith-Clementi Residence / Rios Clementi Hale Studios” 01 May 2013.
