Britain’s largest quoted housing landlord cautious

first_imgThursday 25 November 2010 7:36 pm BRITAIN’S largest quoted housing landlord Grainger said yesterday that its full-year operating profit rose 19.5 per cent to £94.2m, but expressed caution about the outlook for the UK’s housing sector.“In light of the ongoing challenge of the current economic climate, we remain cautious about the prospects for general growth in residential values over the next two years,” Robin Broadhurst, Grainger chairman said.Its net loss in the year to September narrowed to £10.8m from £122m a year earlierThe company said its gross net asset value per share rose 3.1 per cent in the 12 months to the end of September to 200p, up from 194p, and it proposed a final dividend of 1.2p per share for a full-year total dividend of 1.7p.Grainger, which also owns property in Germany, had said last month it expected group property sales in the year to the end of September to fall 23 per cent due to a challenging UK housing market, although trading profits will improve on higher margins. Economists have warned that the housing sector faces further falls in prices as rising unemployment takes its toll. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com whatsappcenter_img Share Britain’s largest quoted housing landlord cautious KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Football’s return releases pent-up GB betting demand in June

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling The return of major football leagues and competitons in June led to a significant increase in sports betting revenue, according to the latest figures from the GB Gambling Commission. 14th August 2020 | By contenteditor The return of major football leagues and competitons in June led to a significant increase in sports betting revenue, according to the latest figures from the GB Gambling Commission.The latest edition of the regulator’s report tracking the country’s gambling market amid the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic showed a significant month-on-month increase in gross gambling yield (GGY) for online sports betting.Gross gaming yield (GGY, stakes minus payouts) for the vertical totalled £217.5m (€241.3m/$285.1m) in June, up 115% from May. The amount of bets placed also jumped 146% month-on-month to 255.5m, while the number of active players for the vertical was up 81%.The Commission said this was down to the return of major club football, including the English Premier League in the middle of the month. The decision by the league to broadcast all matches on television, including some on free-to-air channel, also impacted player behaviour, as did the high frequency of fixtures and kick-off times.“The data indicates the release of pent-up demand, particularly for football-related betting and should be seen in the context of the lack of availability or reluctance of some consumers to bet in licensed betting offices,” the Commission said.However, GGY for all other sectors of the igaming market reported month-on-month declines. Slots revenue fell 10% to £166.5m, other gaming (including casino) falling 12% to £68.5m, virtual betting down 15% to £9.6m.Esports and poker, two verticals that thrived under lockdown, both struggled in June, with esports revenue down 25% to £3.5m. The largest decline was seen in poker, where revenue slipped 36% to £11.7m, while GGY for other forms of gaming was down 6% to £1.8m.In terms of bets placed, slots remained some way out in front, with consumers placing 5.03bn bets in June, down 5% from May. There were drops in all other market sectors, with casino bets down 10%, virtual betting 21% and poker 31%.Looking at active players, slots attracted the most interest, with the number of users up 1% month-on-month to 2.5m, but all other market segments saw a drop in active players during the month. The biggest drop happened in poker, where the number of active players fell 25% in June.Total active players across the market was marginally from 14.7m in May to 14.8m in June, though the Commission noted some players may hold accounts with multiple operators.Though players spent less time playing online, with the average session down by one minute to around 21 minutes in June, the Commission took the opportunity to warn its licensees about new challenges they may face in terms of responsible gambling.According to the Commission, a potential marker of harm is the total number of gambling activities or products used by a consumer. Though the proportion of players using more than one gambling product fell to 35%, the regulator said operators should monitor users for any concerning signs of players gambling unsustainably across multiple verticals.“In light of the challenges and changes brought about by the Covid-19 crisis, we have been clear that we expect operators to identify and interact with consumers where necessary,” the Commission said.

He has more years of crime fighting left in him. He will get a new partner and continue to make Apopka a safer place to live. Its been my absolute privilege to work with Valor as well as my first dog Basti and second dog Neo, along with the other past and present K9 teams of the Apopka Police Department. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Karin Apopka Police Department Feature: Officer Paul Rehn“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”… that saying has been around quite a while, but if it’s true, then Paul Rehn is a prime example.Rehn is a 20-year veteran of law enforcement, 19 of those years with the Apopka Police Department. But it was the last 16 years with the APD’s K-9 unit that have been the most rewarding for him.“You’ve got to love dogs if you do this job,” said Rehn. “You hang out with them 24/7. He’s at home with you. He comes to work with you. If you don’t love them, it’s not going to work out.”Rehn, 46, is retiring from the APD this Friday. By Sunday, he will be on his way to his new home near Chattanooga, TN. However he will never forget his days with his four-legged partners; his latest K-9 companion is Valor, a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois breed.And he definitely loves dogs. In addition to Valor, he has four Australian Shepherds at home.Rehn did not intend on being a K-9 handler when he attended the Police Academy at Seminole State College, but before he graduated, he knew his desired path.“It started back at the academy,” he said. “They had something like a career day where they featured different jobs within the police department. They had a K-9 Unit there. I’ve always loved dogs, and I see them getting paid to play and work with dogs and I thought that must be for me.”Rehn says he started with the APD just as they were beginning their K-9 unit, and he began as a handler in April of 2000. In that time, he has emerged as one of the experts in K-9 handling and training; gaining certification with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a K-9 instructor and handler. He is also the longest serving K-9 handler in APD history.Officer Paul Rehn with his former K-9 partner Neo.Sergeant Brian Hall has been in charge of the APD K-9 unit since 2008, and has worked with Rehn for over 15 years. He praised his knowledge as a handler, trainer and his service to those involved in it.“He is well known in the K-9 handler community,” said Hall. Lot’s of people rely on him. He gives and gives and gives. It’s extraordinary how many people he has touched throughout the years.”The APD will miss his expertise and professionalism as an officer as well, according to APD Captain Randall Fernandez.“Paul is an officer that others strive to emulate,” he said. “Not only is he a dedicated officer that is a role model to others, but his genuine dedication to the citizens of this community is something for which I have the greatest respect and admiration. Some people leave organizations and are soon forgotten, but Paul is one of those that will be remembered for years to come because of his positive impact on all around him.”Fernandez will probably never forget the car-jacking call that he and Rehn both responded to a little over a month ago either.Rehn tells the story of his pursuit of the suspect who had fled the car he stole, and was running away on foot when Rehn spotted him and drove towards him.“I was in pursuit of him in the car, about to let the dog out to apprehend him when he turned and drew a gun and pointed it at me. I hit the brakes and waited for the shots to hit the car, but he turned and ran instead of firing. If I had let Valor out, he would have probably shot him. But it worked out well. He never shot directly at us.”Officers on the scene joked with Rehn that he should take it easier with only a couple of months to go before retirement, but Rehn was hearing none of it.“What’s the difference if you get killed on the first day, last day or any day of your career? I’m not voting for any of those days. But you do your job no matter what point it is in your career. It’s not in my nature to take it easy because I’m nearing retirement.” Rehn has also been a fixture in the Apopka community. In fact his entire family resides in or near Apopka. He was born and raised here, graduating from Apopka High School in 1988. He is well known in the community, coaching both Pop Warner Football and Lacrosse in Apopka for years.“It’s hard to go anywhere in Apopka where they don’t know him,” said Hall. “People always ask ‘where’s Paul or how’s Paul doing’?”APD Chief Michael McKinley will also miss Rehn’s service to both the APD and to Apopka.“Paul has been a great asset to the Apopka Police Department and to the citizens of Apopka. His dedication and professionalism are exemplary. Paul has always been willing to help everyone he came in contact with, whether it was a citizen or another police officer. Paul’s knowledge and experience will be missed, especially when it comes to what he has accomplished as a K-9 officer.”last_img read more

Located in the heart of Paris, this 235sqm apartment spread over three floors had not undergone any transformations in decades. At the request of the new owners, we were tasked with rethinking and restructuring the entire triplex. Our first concern was to completely review the distribution of spaces and their organizations in order to adapt them to the needs of new owners. At first, all the existing partitions were demolished: The objective was then to preserve and enhance the light that had become through after demolition.Save this picture!© Agathe TissierSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Agathe TissierThanks to a new layout of the rooms, the apartment, doubly oriented, is now bathed in natural light throughout the day and in all rooms. In addition, the work has helped to recreate a link between the ground floor and the first-floor thanks to the opening of the double-height of the living room. The new distribution of spaces has provided fluidity in the spaces while allowing a better distribution of different reception spaces, leisure spaces, and intimate spaces.Save this picture!© Agathe TissierOn the ground floor are the living and reception rooms: the kitchen dining room and living room. On the first floor, the children’s bedrooms are connected by a common playroom overlooking the double height of the living room, as well as their private bathroom. And separated by a few steps is the master bedroom with its large volume and its “mini” bathroom designed like a cocoon. And finally, the top floor slope under the roofs is thought of as a relaxation area hosting an office and a sports room as well as a third bathroom. In the decorative choices, meticulous work has been focused on the choice of materials and chromatic range.Save this picture!© Agathe TissierSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Agathe TissierLight oak and blue shape the identity of the apartment while giving it its character. The link between the different spaces is created by the custom oak arrangements and the blue that is found in the kitchen, the living room library, and in the entrance. On the floors, each room has its own identity but remains in harmony with the whole with careful chromatic and decorative choices and a light oak flooring that creates the link throughout the apartment. On the 2nd floor, it is discovered and recovered brick that gives all its character to the rooms intended for leisure.Save this picture!© Agathe TissierThroughout the project, special attention has been paid to adopting a responsible approach: from spatial organization to interior decoration, through the choice of materials. We have decided to retain as many old elements as possible such as the 2nd-floor brick or the ground floor floor floor, the cast iron radiators, and the chimney that could be recovered to combine the past and the present. These elements, beyond the ecological approach of “recycling”, allow keeping the identity of the dwelling while transforming it into a warm and contemporary dwelling.Project gallerySee allShow lessCall for ArchDaily Interns: Winter/Spring 2021Call for SubmissionsNatural Wood, Gray and White: How to Update a 90’s BathroomArticlesProject locationAddress:Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Global warming: Disaster for Arctic peoples

first_imgDisco Bay in Greenland, well above the Arctic Circle, in August.WW photo: G. DunkelThe Arctic is warming two to four times faster than the rest of the globe. This is due to a feedback loop involving the albedo (“whiteness”) effect, which is “a measure of how much of the sun’s energy is reflected back into space.” (skepticalscience.com)Ice and snow reflect much more of the sun’s rays than open water and bare earth. As global warming slows down the formation of Arctic ice in the fall and hastens its breakup in the spring, more heat from the sun is transferred to the Arctic environment, which increases the changes in the ice and snow cover.For the 250,000 or so Native peoples in the Arctic — mainly Inuit, living from Alaska to Greenland; but also Sami in northern Norway; Aleut, Athabaskans and Gwich’in in North America; Nenets, Chukchi and many other Indigenous peoples in northern Russia — the changes produced by this warming make the ways they catch the food that sustains them much more risky.And the melting of permafrost makes the way they store what they catch more labor intensive and less secure.Scientists generally consider the Arctic the area of the world where the ground is permanently frozen, but the speed at which the permafrost is thawing challenges this definition.The example of Shishmaref, an Inupiaq village in northwest Alaska, illustrates some of the difficulties Native peoples in the Arctic face. Rising sea levels and the absence of shore ice mean the more violent storms that global warming produces are threatening to wash away this barrier island. The town’s homes, water system and infrastructure are being undermined.The absence of sea ice makes it more difficult for hunters to harvest the caribou and seals that provide much of their protein. This town is 400 years old and could be destroyed in the next major storm. (arctic.noaa.gov)Even though the resource exploitation that was opened up by this warming has brought some wage-paying jobs to the Arctic, hunting is still necessary. But as it becomes riskier and riskier and as young people become entranced with video games and school activities and are disinclined to follow their elders in hunting, social tensions — already high — have grown unbearable for many.Suicides, alcoholism, glue sniffing and the breakdown of the community solidarity that enabled the Inuit to survive and prosper in the extremely harsh Arctic environment for a few thousand years are some of the social problems linked to global warming in the Arctic.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
