BoE: Supply of money in Britain takes an upturn

first_img KCS-content whatsapp BoE: Supply of money in Britain takes an upturn THE Bank of England’s overall measure of the money supply grew by 0.8 per cent in January, it announced yesterday.Over 12 months total “M4” fell by 1.7 per cent, but some analysts point to signs of a pick up in the figures.The Bank’s preferred “core” money measure – excluding intermediary non-bank financial companies – rose 0.7 per cent in the first month of the year, and was up 4.9 per cent annualised in the three months to January.“This is above a level likely to be consistent with the two per cent inflation target over the medium term,” said Henderson economist Simon Ward.“Governor Mervyn King has repeatedly cited sluggish broad money growth as a reason for nonchalance about the current inflation overshoot,” Ward said. “But an increase in velocity has the same economic impact as monetary expansion – and velocity climbed 2.1 per cent in 2010, the largest annual rise since 1979.”The upturn in the money supply was largely driven by the government sector, analysts noted.“A breakdown reveals UK institutions to be a significant net seller of paper in January,” said David Owen, economist at Jefferies International.

This residential development consists of a complete gut renovation and new construction behind one of New York’s most beautiful and oldest cast-iron facades. It required a careful approach to the blending of contemporary architecture with historic preservation. New York City’s Landmarks Commission required any rooftop addition to be invisible. The building, however, is located on a highly-visible corner with a low, two-story building across the street. This meant that the building’s roof was visible from almost three blocks away.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!Roof Evolution DiagramSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteTracing the cone of vision from the furthest point from which the building was visible, WORKac utilized three rooftop projections to mask the bulk of an addition: the triangular pediment of the historic Carey Building next door, and the circular pediment and an abandoned elevator bulkhead  at the top of the building itself. The “shadow” created by these three projections created a sizeable zone for the addition and the opportunity for a distinctive angled form for the new roof. The result is a sculptural form that is – at the same time – completely invisible from the street below.Save this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!SectionFor the apartment interiors and public area, WORKac created spaces that combine nature-inspired elements and systems with new ideas about urban living. From the tessellated green wall at the lobby to generous planters and balconies at the second, sixth and seventh floors, connections to the outdoors are emphasized. Within each apartment, a “third space” between bedrooms and living spaces is created at the top of the volume containing storage and bathrooms. Less than four-feet high, this “bonsai apartment” is outfitted with a futon, seating areas, and an herb garden above the kitchen. Its main feature is a fern garden connected to the master shower below. Steam from the shower collects on the glass walls of the garden and waters the plants.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe penthouse combines sleeping spaces and a family room within the old fifth floor of the building with new entertaining and dining spaces under the new roof at the sixth floor. A secluded terrace is sunken behind the pediment with views to the Woolworth Building; the old elevator bulkhead is repurposed with a hot tub. The height afforded by angle formed by the cone-of-vision allows for a rear mezzanine with views toward downtown and the Freedom Tower.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe 1857 façade is completely restored. The new charcoal color chosen by WORKac references the building’s history of being painted in dark contrast with its lighter neighbors. As all of the building’s Corinthean column capitols had been lost to history, WORKac collaborated with the artist Michael Hansmeyer to create new versions. Hansmeyer created a computer script that allowed the classical floral elements of the Corinthean order to “grow” fractally, resulting in a new design that adheres to the old proportions but is composed of clearly new forms and idiosyncrasies.  Like the rooftop addition, these capitals at first glance appear quite ordinary; it is only on closer inspection that the stealthy strategy of strategic injection of contemporary design becomes clear.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteProject gallerySee allShow lessBIG Joins Kuma, Perrault and EMBT in Designing Stations for the Grand Paris Express …Architecture News10 Models Which Show the Power of Point Cloud Scans, As Selected by SketchfabArticlesProject locationAddress:New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Gunmen threaten staff and torch latest issue in dawn attack on local daily

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns an attack by three gunmen at dawn on 18 May on Imprensa Livre, a local daily based in São Sebastião (São Paulo state), in which employees were hit and threatened and almost all the copies of that day’s issue were torched. The organisation calls on investigators not to rule out any possibility. Organisation Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America May 22, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Gunmen threaten staff and torch latest issue in dawn attack on local daily RSF_en Reports Help by sharing this information to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned an attack on a local daily in São Paulo state on 18 May by three hooded gunmen, who torched that day’s issue, hit employees and ordered them to stop publishing news about the “First Commando of the City” (PCC), a criminal gang responsible for an unprecedented wave of violence in São Paulo city in the past 10 days.The newspaper targeted was Imprensa Livre, which is based in the coastal town of São Sebastião.“The attack illustrates the kind of violence to which the local Brazilian press is still exposed,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Investigators must consider all possibilities including an operation by the PCC or by police officers bent on revenge for the deaths of many colleagues during a week of attacks on police stations. São Paulo’s governor has himself acknowledged that the police may have been responsible for many abuses.”The three gunmen burst into the premises of Imprensa Livre at around 4 a.m., when a total of seven employees were present. They were armed with handguns and what appeared to be a 12-calibre rifle, and were carrying cans of petrol. Two of the employees – journalist César Rodrigues and a graphic designer managed to escape – but the others were punched and kicked, doused in petrol and made to lie on the ground.The gunmen then set fire to virtually all the copies of that day’s issue and gave orders for the newspaper’s journalists to stop carrying reports about the PCC, the gang that went on the rampage in São Paulo after some of its members were transferred from one prison to another against their will.Imprensa Livre’s staff do not however think the PCC was responsible for the attack on their newspaper. Asked whether he thought it was linked to their recent scathing reports about the municipal government, Rodrigues was cautious but did not exclude the possibility.The fire caused serious damaged to printing equipment as well as destroying some 3,000 copies of the newspaper.

The information was provided to the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad in a plea seeking to ramp up testing facilities for COVID19 in Delhi. Today, the Central Government informed the court that as per the Ministry of Home Affairs latest advisory, State Governments and UTs are free to impose restrictions such as night curfews after making their own assessment. However, Mr Anurag Ahluwalia, who was appearing for the Central Government, further submitted that no State can impose lockdown outside the containment zone without the prior approval of the Central Government. On the issue of testing, the Delhi Government’s counsel Mr Satyakam submitted that around 40,000 samples through RT-PCR testing kits were collected yesterday. ‘We’re very proud of these numbers and we hope to continue this trend’, Mr Satyakam submitted. The court, however, responded by saying that this development of 40,000 RT-PCR samples has come at a cost many lives, and due to the constant pushing and prodding the court. Subsequently, the court took up the issue of enforcing COVID advisories on ground. The court said that there’s a need for a protocol to be established to engage market associations and Residents Welfare Associations (RWAs) for better implementation of COVID directions on ground. ‘The message needs to go out that it is mandatory to wear masks and practise COVID etiquettes’, the court said. The court also directed the Delhi Government to submit a status report on how the money collected through fines imposed for violating COVID norms are being utilised. The court said: ‘Please show us how the money collected through fines are being utilised. You must explore the option of online payment of these fines. This money can be used for strengthening your strategy of curbing the spread of the virus.’ On COVID management, the court asked the Delhi Government to ensure that the advisory on capping the maximum attendance for weddings is strictly enforced. ‘Wedding season is in full swing, you should come up with a protocol, conduct random checks, to ensure better enforcement’, the court said.Next Storylast_img read more

Assembly passes bill blocking trash incinerator in Finger Lakes

first_img ALBANY, N.Y. — The New York State Assembly passed a bill Thursday that prevents the construction of new trash incinerators in the region and is aimed at blocking construction of a proposed controversial incinerator at the Seneca Army Depot in Romulus.Specifically, the bill — co-sponsored by Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton (D/WF-125) — would prohibit the state from issuing permits for a trash incinerator in the Oswego/Finger Lakes Watershed, if there is a landfill within a 50-mile radius of the proposed incinerator and if it would be located within 10 miles of a priority watershed designated by the Department of Environmental Conservation. There are identical bills in the Assembly (A5029) and Senate (S2270).In a news release Thursday, Lifton said she worked closely with Assemblymember Michael Cusick (D-Staten Island), chair of the Assembly Energy Committee, to draft the bill, and the Assembly worked with the Senate companion bill.“I was proud to co-sponsor this bill, and I’m very pleased that it has now passed the Assembly,” said Lifton. “The proposed project in Romulus carries significant risks to the health and welfare of our region and all our communities, and experts have told us that it could be very damaging to the local environment. Wineries and local businesses throughout our region have also weighed in on the project, expressing concern that an incinerator could have a devastating impact on the local agriculture and tourism industries.” Your government news is made possible with support from: center_img Kelsey O’Connor Tagged: assembly, barbara lifton, senate, trash incinerator The legislation is aimed at Rochester-based Circular enerG’s plan to build a $365 million waste-to-energy trash incinerator on a 48-acre parcel of the Seneca Army Depot property. When it was first proposed, the company said the incinerator would burn up to 175 truckloads of solid waste each day and generate electricity. But the trash incinerator was met with community opposition as well as local and state opposition from those who do not want the pollution. In addition to Lifton, several politicians, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer and N.Y. Sen. Tom O’Mara have previously voiced opposition to the incinerator.Capitol Watch: Vacation week ahead of legislative stormsTompkins County Legislature recently weighed in and supported the Senate and Assembly bills with a unanimous resolution that stated the proposed incinerator would “emit toxic emissions and residual ash containing dioxins, lead, mercury, and other toxic chemicals, as well as an estimated one million tons of carbon dioxide every year … these emissions would be harmful to humans, animals, and plants in the area, would pollute Cayuga and Seneca Lakes, and would have a harmful impact on tourism and agriculture in the Finger Lakes area.”The bill is necessary, Lifton said in a statement, because under current Article 10 state siting law, trash incinerators can be built even if it violates local zoning ordinances. She said she hopes the Senate will pass this bill and Gov. Cuomo will then sign it into law.Featured image provided. Kelsey O’Connor is the managing editor for the Ithaca Voice. Questions?
