UK Plc upbeat despite cooling

first_img whatsapp UK Plc upbeat despite cooling ECONOMIC growth slowed down in the final three months of the year, according to a report out today.Yet UK businesses remain extremely confident over their prospects for this year, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) survey revealed.Turnover confidence stayed close to a three-year high, the survey said, while confidence in 2011’s profits reached its highest level since the end of 2007.And British exports continue to grow, businesses revealed. Manufacturing export sales soared 13 points in the survey, while export orders surged 21 points.And manufacturing was strong in London, the report showed. “A majority of London manufacturers reported growth in both export sales and orders over the past three months, suggesting there is potential for an export-led recovery,” said the BCC’s Dr Helen Hill.Service sector exports, meanwhile, jumped to pre recession levels. However, overall the service sector is in a less strong position than its manufacturing counterpart, the survey revealed. “The service sector’s weaknesses are worrying,” the BCC warned, “and unless reversed could have adverse consequences, particularly for jobs.”The report suggests that GDP growth for the final quarter of the year could come in at around 0.4 or 0.5 per cent. The economy is “not out of the woods” yet, the report’s authors said.“The government must encourage more new start-ups, more employment, create stronger companies and support export potential,” said BCC director general David Frost.

Why I believe the Rolls-Royce share price will take off in 2021

first_img Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 9th January, 2021 | More on: RR The Rolls-Royce (LON: RR) share price was officially one of the worst-performing stocks of 2020. Shares in the aerospace company fell by more than 50% in what had been one of the worst years in its long history.For a few months, it was touch and go. There was even talk of nationalisation at one point. Management had to work flat out to secure a refinancing plan to help the group weather the storm.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…Luckily, they succeeded. The group is now well-financed and costs have been cut. I believe this puts it in an excellent position to stage a recovery in 2021. Rolls-Royce share price: primed for growthRolls’ problems have one root cause, the global pandemic. Unfortunately, it looks as if the coronavirus crisis will continue for at least the next six months. However, there are green shoots on the horizon. A vaccination programme is well underway in the UK and the United States, and doctors are becoming much better at treating the illness. This suggests there’s an end in sight. Nevertheless, it may be several years before the aviation market returns to levels of activity last seen in 2019. Still, the industry appears to have stabilised, which is good news for the Rolls-Royce share price, in my opinion. I believe the company’s current share price already reflects much of the bad news in the aerospace industry. As such, I reckon it’s unlikely the stock will return to the lows seen in October of last year. At that point, the group was scrambling to raise funding to keep the lights on. And as the share price already reflects much of the bad news facing the sector, I reckon any improvement will have a significant impact on a Rolls-Royce share price. To put it another way, when the company’s sales begin to improve, I think the stock could quickly rise in value. Ready for take-offWith that in mind, I’m cautiously optimistic on the outlook for the Rolls-Royce share price in 2021. Even a slight improvement in the firm’s fortunes could produce a large capital gain for shareholders. For example, if an investor bought the stock today, and it returned to levels seen at the beginning of 2020, they’d see a capital return of around 120%. As well as this potential for capital growth, the Rolls-Royce share price also has a limited downside, in my opinion. As noted above, the company has enough money to keep the lights on for the foreseeable future. What’s more, group sales and cash flow figures are steadily improving. Therefore, as a recovery play on the global economy, I think it could be worth me taking a closer look at the Rolls-Royce share price. I reckon the stock’s potential reward more than compensates for the risk of buying at current levels. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

A tribute to Western Province legend and MND victim, Tinus Linee

first_imgFriday Nov 7, 2014 A tribute to Western Province legend and MND victim, Tinus Linee Motor Neuron Disease has been in the spotlight of late with plenty of publicity for ALS support, and through the efforts of Springbok legend Joost van der Westhuizen. This week however Joost’s former team mate lost his battle with MND.Tinus Linee is a name that international audiences probably aren’t all that familiar with but back when South Africa was transitioning into world rugby again after years of isolation, Linee was at the forefront in terms of players of colour, and was one of the top backs in the country at the time.Aged 45, he passed away at his home on Monday after 19 months with the debilitating condition.“We heard the news from South Africa this morning about Tinus’s sad passing and our thoughts were immediately with his family and community in the Western Cape,” said Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer.“We have lost a Springbok brother and it made for a sombre mood in the team room today. To have one so strong and brave struck down by this disease is very cruel indeed.“We’ll be thinking of Tinus and his family when we take the field against Ireland on Saturday. He is in our thoughts and prayers.”Linee played for Western Province 112 times between 1992 and 2001, and toured with the Springboks between 1993 and 1994, playing nine tour matches.In 2008 he started coaching alongside long time friend and team mate, Chester Williams, who speaks in the touching tribute below.Thanks to Supersport for the video tribute.

This project is a highly crafted response to the client’s request for a house that respects the strength and delicacy of the existing. It is a work of humility, that builds on the material and detailed richness of the existing heritage listed house. Save this picture!© Robert Frith The existing house is set centrally on a traditional quarter acre block surrounded by a well established and luscious garden. The transition through the garden to the house was considered an important part of the initial encounter with the house. The garden screens and protects the house and provides an opportunity to conceal the house, allowing it to be revealed only to the invited. Save this picture!© Robert Frith Formally, the house is composed of two parts. The first is an extension to the roof form of the existing house. This was important to continue the scale and mass of the existing building. It also created the opportunity to introduce a new interpretation of the material palette of jarrah flooring, masonry walls and timber window framing. The second is an insertion of a new tight skinned timber and steel box, which is open at the end and has carefully cut openings in its sides. The openings were formed by steel framed windows, with an exaggerated depth to match the thickness of timber clad walls. The deep steel frames articulate the play of light and shade into the house as well as capture images of the landscape in reflections within the glass. The placement of these openings relate both to the interior and the creation of key connections to the landscape. Save this picture!© Robert Frith Internally, a central concrete core creates the organisational and conceptual centre of the project. This is emphasised by the extra weight and presence of the concrete, .Contained within the core is the kitchen, the heart of the house. Located around the core are the family, dining, living and work spaces. The central placement of the core encourages movement and exploration, while also framing or creating new encounters with the landscape and garden. Built over three levels each space has a unique and different connection to the outside. Save this picture!© Robert Frith A deck is nestled outside the dining room between the new addition and an extraordinary eucalyptus tree. Moments for casual use have been designed into the house in the form of a concrete bench that transforms from shelving to lounge seating and steps to the external deck that are extra high to act as places to sit amongst the garden. Save this picture!© Robert Frith The rear garden is defined by boundary walls in rough brickwork and random limestone block. These were considered part of the spatial form of the garden and the project. New limestone retaining walls and garden beds provide a geometric end to the garden, creating a contemplative space to sit and reflect on the house in its setting.

In this review we wish to present as an argument and the unique way of our architectural planning as well as the final product, the built structure.The building in the main Ba’al Haakeda 5, located in one of the southern neighborhoods of Tel Aviv. This is neighborhood composed of a heterogeneous population, from foreign immigrants, veteran families, students and young families who have moved in recent years. The neighborhood is characterized by small buildings and is rebuilt at a rapid pace. This 4 story residential building has a 1,500 m2 in total, with 10 apartments units with 3-5 rooms, a wide open public terrace.Our work is presented as a product of Architecture-Philosophy research through the architectural medium, by a unique planning methodology that enables to deal with shapes and spaces separately from their formal and cultural meanings.Save this picture!© Yuval HaiForm Has No MeaningReading poetry reveals a unique and exciting perspective on the world, a story or a book describes it in more detail. Similarly, does it for the two-dimensional painting, and the three-dimensional sculpture. Architecture in turn could be the medium to research through the use of space, an opportunity to learn about the world.Save this picture!© Yuval HaiThe architectural work presented here was not designed as a criterion of Form as “beauty” or its compositional quality. The basic assumption that stands before our eyes is that “Form Has no Meaning”. We, as architects, deal with the creation of formal spaces for the human use and culture. However, the full understanding of the forms as symbols of cultural significance is far from our ability as creators, and is immeasurably complex for the urban and cultural complex in which it exists. In order not to get carried away into infinite interpretation, we seek to dichotome “Meaning” an “Form” as a symbol. Through out this structure, we want  to present a methodology, in which architectural can reveals layers about the object of the discussion in which the architectural is deigns and planed.Save this picture!Ground floor planM.O.F. MethodologyIn each architectural structure, the uniqueness can be found in the triangular encounter between the physical plot, the entrepreneurial program and the creative / investigating architectural action. In order to process the uniqueness in a minimum of symbolic forms, and to justify the creation of formal pure spaces in architecture, we propose a unique methodology ​​called M.O.F., Meaning-Order-Form. In this way, our architectural work processes the form spaces that follow the Order rather than the Meaning. The use of Order as a barrier and a bridge between Meaning and Form.Save this picture!© Yuval HaiThis distinction was made after the analysis of the building rights and the program that we received from the owners. We discover that the volume of the “envelope” was significantly greater than the requested building rights. As a result we created a public space in the ground floor, a small mezzanine and a large floor, which we stayed “in the air”. In fact, we could attach the “useless” spaces to almost every place in the building, this decisions made through the use of M.O.F methodology.Save this picture!SectionThe uniqueness which we found in this plot created the subject that was discourse in this architecture building. The subject is the concept of “Colloid” in the architectural action made. It is important to clarify that this is not methodological for empirical research or an attempt at empirical discussion, but to expose an additional layer to reality through the gaze of the architectural action that exists in every plot and in any unique  architectural work. In the case of pure building, has a criticism and discussion of the “Colloid” concept using the M.O.F methodology.Save this picture!© Yuval HaiMeaning”Colloid”: A concept that describes a homogeneous (uniform) mixture between two substances. Consists of tiny particles of a single substance (“scattered phase”) that are uniformly distributed in another material whose particles surround the first particles of matter (“continuous phase”). In reference this  is the distinction between two distinct bodies and a space that stabilizes them within a wider space. The subject raised is about the stabilizing one space in the public space between the two bodies, and its projection from the street to the private building.Save this picture!SketchOrderTwo formal rules: (1) Create a spatial mix between “existent” layers,  and ” non existent” layered construction open spaces at various public levels. (2) creating a range in the public sphere.FormIn fact, dozens of form sketchs have been made that comply with the Order rules. We refer to sketches and a video in which forms of the preferred option.Save this picture!© Yuval HaiArchitectural processing of the Forms led us to discuss the central component of colloid, not only at the pole between the private and the public, but in the range of relations that holds both poles and distinguishes between them. This is the component of the public space, which takes place in a wide range of possibilities between the ” existent” spaces in the building and the “non existent” spaces.Save this picture!Second floor planWe reached several conclusions. The first is that the ” non existent” component unites and stabilizes the private spaces of the “existent”. This component is found in several formal levels, and in a wide range of public structures in the street. The main component of this building resonates in the public space and creates the structure by subtraction on the ground floor, and connecting to his urban surrounding. A structural division that preserves the first floor in the neighborhood scale. The decision to place the ground floor in relation to adjacent buildings of the same height. The movement of this element takes place from the open entrance to the street and to the technical spaces, continues to the public space on the mezzanine floor, and ends in the public space marked by the framed and monumental porch facing the street.Much of the architectural work done in the building was to highlight architectural conclusions in the discussion about “Colloid”. For example, the decision to place three thin pillars at the entrance was made to emphasize the street and the entrance hall, and together with the split floor. As well as the choice of covering the public space walls in the same toning colors and materials as in the street. Another example is placing only one apartment in the rear of mezzanine floor, and choosing the horizontal railings there, compared with the glass in the upper balcony, to do a distinction of public spaces. It should be noted that there are many other decisions at different levels (lighting, openings and frames) that are made throughout the planning and Construction, but it is not possible to list them al here. “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeToam ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTel Aviv-YafoIsraelPublished on June 30, 2018Cite: “Ba’al Haakeda 5 Tel Aviv / Toam Architecture” 29 Jun 2018.

This is a renovation of a 40-year old apartment in Tokyo. All rooms had sufficient light and wind from many windows along south and north walls facing wide streets. We converted the three-bedroom apartment into a large open space and let light and wind pass through in order to make the best use of the environment. In an open plan space, we need to consider how to locate spaces involving privacy including a bathroom and bedrooms and how to provide enough storage spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office Shogo OnoderaOur solution was to provide a large closet spanning the entire width of the room. We removed all partitions and made a large floor area to maintain some “margin” and a sense of spaciousness. Large furniture divides the space according to daily functions and loosely defines a “place” for life, not “rooms”.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office Shogo OnoderaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Office Shogo OnoderaWe focused on how to integrate the large piece of furniture into daily life. Reflective finishes are applied on the surface on which daily scenes are reflected and diffused light is reflected to illuminate the space. Closet doors are slightly angled to create subtle gaps in between so that the impression changes according to the viewing angle. The ceiling and walls are left as they are. Instead of applying new finishes, lace curtains hung along the entire width of the walls serve as new “finishes” creating vivid contrasts with the existing walls.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office Shogo OnoderaDelicate qualities of details and finishes stand out and a unique feeling of tension between the old and new is generated by keeping the existing state. We envisioned a future house. A house reflects its social context and is planned to meet values, customs, and lifestyles of the time. To think about a future house is to imagine future society and lifestyles. This apartment was built in 1979 based on a typical family apartment plan in Japan. Our clients wanted to have a flexible living environment allowing for various activities such as inviting guests and working.Save this picture!Plan – DetailA typical apartment plan centered around a space combining a dining room and kitchen, which started 40 years ago in Japan, is no longer effective and needs to be updated to meet diverse demands of today’s society. In this project, we intend to deconstruct a typical apartment based on a “room” and reconstruct it as a “place.” Our focus was on how to incorporate the surrounding environment and envision lifestyles in the new era.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office Shogo OnoderaSave this picture!Plan – CeilingThe space should be flexible to respond to changes in family structure and the key is to provide some “margin” allowing for possible changes in the future. An open-floor space provides a sufficient “margin” and furniture can be effectively used to utilize the “margin.” In this way, we can propose unique solutions to meet various demands of clients. By exploring a future house, we acknowledged unmeasurable values of spaces that cannot be evaluated based on conventional standards such as the floor area or the price per unit area. Deconstruction/reconstruction of evaluation criteria is a crucial factor in evolution of houses.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office Shogo OnoderaProject gallerySee allShow lessTongde Hall / ZSZY StudioSelected ProjectsHaymarket Boutique Office / Make ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tokyo, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.
