The median home price fell 3.7 per cent from a year-ago to $158,800 (£98,217), the lowest since April 2002.Barclays Capital economist Michael Gapen in New York said it had expected unit sales to rise to a 5.25 million-unit rate in January and the analyst consensus was for a 5.22 million-unit rate.“The recent activity provides further evidence that the housing market has stabilised,” he said. “We expect the recent improvement in home sales to persist, albeit at a more moderate pace than observed in the second half of 2010. We see sales as supported by continued improvements in labour market conditions, but constrained by tight credit standards and higher mortgage rates.”The NAR has been accused of over-counting existing home sales. The Wall Street Journal on Monday quoted California real estate analysis firm, CoreLogic, as saying the NAR could have overstated home sales by as much as 20 per cent. NAR dismissed the claim and chief economist Lawrence Yun told reporters: “I would be highly surprised if it was 20 per cent.” The NAR also revised the sales rates for the past three years, which showed 2010 sales little changed.

I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks for a growing passive incomecenter_img Aged 60 and no savings? Don’t relish living on the basic State Pension of £8,767 a year? Don’t despair! It’s not too late to build a nest egg that could increase your income in retirement.The FTSE 100, for example, has a long record of growing even modest sums at a relatively high rate, and providing a rising income from dividends.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…Right now, many blue-chip companies have generous dividend yields. As such, this could be a good time to invest in such stocks to boost your retirement income. Here are two I’d be happy to buy today.Well positionedCarnival (LSE: CCL) is the world’s largest cruise ship operator. It owns well-known brands, including Holland America, P&O Cruises and Cunard. It’s the dominant player in a growing industry. This means it could increase its profits over time, and provide investors with a rising income.It isn’t all plain sailing for Carnival at the moment. Last year, it suffered a high number of unusual weather-related and other events. It also saw a downturn in demand in some of its large source markets in Europe. Nonetheless, it posted record revenue and earnings, the latter increasing 3.3%.The company and City analysts expect no real pick-up in earnings growth in 2020. This is due to the tail effect of last year’s events and likely continuing weakness in European markets.However, Carnival’s actions for stimulating demand and increasing cost efficiencies bode well for higher growth rates in future. The company believes it’s well positioned to return to double-digit earnings growth.Double your incomeAt a share price of 3,257p, Carnival trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9.4. Buyers can also look forward to a forecast first-year dividend yield of 4.8%. In my opinion, the P/E is extremely cheap and the starting yield highly attractive.The income in the first year would almost double after seven years. This is if the dividend increased at 10% a year in line with management’s longer-term outlook for earnings growth. I think Carnival has a lot of appeal for anyone aged 60 looking to invest for a growing income in retirement.ReliabilityAt a current share price of 4,429p, consumer goods giant Unilever (LSE: ULVR) has a higher P/E (19.1) and lower yield (3.5%) than Carnival. However, I believe the reliability of its earnings makes its current P/E and yield attractive.Some consumers may delay making a ‘big ticket’ purchase like a cruise during an economic downturn. They’re less likely to stop buying Unilever’s much-loved and trusted brands. These include the world’s leading health soap, Lifebuoy, and foods like Marmite and Hellmann’s.Rising income streamLast month, Unilever said it’s seen challenging conditions in some of its global markets. It expects this to put a dent in revenue growth for 2019 and the first half of 2020. However, it’s a measure of the group’s resilience that it doesn’t expect any impact on earnings.City number crunchers reckon the company can produce consistent high-single-digit earnings and dividend growth in the coming years.

Guinness Pro12 final: Connacht 20-10 Leinster

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Referee: Nigel Owens (Wales)Attendance: 34, 550 A final like this presents a grand stage to show off your goods to those who may not have seen them before. However, for England fans not used to watching Pro12 rugby, Connacht’s Super Rugby-style will have drawn eyes away from the Leinster centre who Eddie Jones is taking to Australia with him.Te’o looked incredibly comfy with a defensive set – darting up and down in straight lines – but this was a game with more angles than a snooker match. He carries hard, but again, Leinster’s sustained possessions where never as box office as Connacht’s. Te’o is a man built for Sexton’s structures, but this one was far too loose for such a norm.Happy tourists: Connacht fans were in good voice all gameSTATISTICS28 – the number of defenders Connacht beat during the game40 – AJ MacGinty’s kicking accuracy, in per cent5 – The number of mauls Connacht used, compared to Leinster’s zeroConnacht: T O’Halloran (Rep: S O’Leary, 68); N Adeolokun, R Henshaw (Rep: T O’Halloran, 71), B Aki, M Healy; AJ MacGinty, K Marmion (Rep: J Cooney, 60, P Robb, 65); R Loughney (Rep: R Ah You, 68), T McCartney (Rep: D Heffernan, 71), F Bealham, U Dillane, E McKeon (Rep: Sean O’Brien, 40), J Hennan, J Muldoon.ScorersTries: O’Halloran, Adeolokun, Healy. Cons: MacGinty. Pens: MacGintyLeinster: R Kearney (Rep: Z Kirchner, 60); D Kearney (Rep: I Madigan, 75), G Ringrose, B Te’o, L Fitzgerald; J Sexton, E Reddan; J McGrath (Rep: P Dooley, 71), R Strauss (Rep: S Cronin, 41), M Ross (Rep: T Furlong, 41), R Molony, M Kearney (Rep: H Triggs, 16), R Ruddock (Rep: J Conan, 62), J Murphy, J Heaslip.ScorersTries: Cronin. Cons: Sexton. Pens: SextonMan of the Match: John Muldoon Eagle soaring: Niyi Adeolokun takes flight as he scores a sensational try for Connacht Connacht achieved the near-impossible by not only winning their first ever final, but by doing it playing a brand of scintillating, attractive rugby. Three sumptuous tries from the men in green was matched only by one Leinster dot.The losing side were shell-shocked in the first half, trailing 15-0 at the interval. They did their best to claw back, but Connacht were not to be denied.WHAT’S HOTSuper Rugby up northConnacht attacking from everywhere, as they’ve done all season, in the biggest game of their history made for a showcase match full of biff and sprinting. The Galway side will throw passes metres from their own line and with Bundee Aki plus a back three of Tiernan O’Halloran, Matt Healy and Niyi Adeolokun, they had the right sticks of dynamite to blow this match apart. Ignoring the fantastic narrative of Connacht climbing past all others to stun the rest of the league, it is the rugby they have played all season that has had fans swooning. Well played Pat Lam, for letting his boys off the leash on such a high-pressure day.Adeolokun’s try was worth the price of admission, alone. Kieran Marmion took an Aki pop off the deck and fed the winger, who chipped over the top, kicked it forward on the bounce and sprung past Eoin Reddan to score. That Healy also profited from a beautifully laced grubber by AJ MacGinty was just too much for Leinster. Breathtaking.Stopped in his tracks: Jamie Heaslip is shackledPack animalsThe Connacht pack offloaded effectively and ran hard, while Leinster’s heavies did their best to pinch ball here and there. At least from the Galway side’s point of view, it is great to see a game played at such a pace that does not pass the grunters by. Want an example? Look at Ally Muldowney’s offloads or Tom McCartney’s almost-try.Sexton’s gritAfter a seismic smash by Aki, you’d think that Sexton was chips. He was regularly clutching a bad shoulder in the first half. But he toughed it out, held up McCartney over the try line and was giving referee Nigel Owens plenty to think about in stoppages in play.WHAT’S NOTPlaying onThere was a big clash in the middle of the park as Zane Kirchner carried into O’Halloran, with body hitting head, resulting in the Connacht full-back laid out on the floor. Owens spotted the player, but allowed the ball to be passed over him. O’Halloran spent a long time on the deck and some of the crowd made their feelings clear with boos. As the medics attended the fallen back, Leinster scored and converted to bring the game within ten points. Forgetting about the try: should Owens have stopped play?O’Halloran returned to the fray after a head injury assessment.Scouting Ben Te’olast_img read more

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Each country will have a ‘bye’ weekend as they play two fewer fixtures than a traditional Six Nations, with organisers pointing to a congested calendar as the reason for a condensed format for 2021.Six Nations Rugby CEO Ben Morel said: “We see huge opportunity for growth in the women’s game in particular and feel it will benefit hugely from having its own specific window and being firmly placed in the limelight.“A significant challenge we faced in rescheduling the women’s tournament was the limited available window due to World Cup Qualifiers, domestic leagues, rest periods and World Cup preparations for qualified teams.“Following consultation with our unions and federations as well as other key stakeholders, it was agreed that April would be the best window in which to stage the championship.” This year’s Women’s Six Nations will be played over four weekends (Getty Images)center_img This year’s championship will take place in April New format for 2021 Women’s Six NationsThe 2021 Women’s Six Nations will take place in a new format on back-to-back weekends in April.The championship is usually played concurrently with the men’s Six Nations but was postponed last month due to the challenges around Covid-19 restrictions, particularly with the majority of players involved amateur.This year’s Women’s Six Nations will now take place in a condensed format – similar to that used in the Autumn Nations Cup – over four weekends, starting on 3-4 April.Rather than all six teams playing each other, they will be split into two pools of three and play one match at home and another away. Results in those matches will determine standings in the pool and teams will then face the country ranked in the same position in the other group on finals weekend, 24-25 April.England, who have won back-to-back Grand Slams, are in Pool A alongside Italy and Scotland while Pool B consists of France, Ireland and Wales.The breakdown of fixtures is below…last_img read more

Anglican bishops call for climate justice action in new video…

first_img Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Knoxville, TN Curate Diocese of Nebraska Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Collierville, TN Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Michael McLane says: Posted Aug 20, 2015 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Smithfield, NC Bishops for climate justice at an early morning eucharist at the Volmoed Centre meeting in South Africa in February 2015. Photo: ACEN[Anglican Communion Environmental Network] Several bishops around the Anglican Communion have made short videos describing the impact and implications of climate change in their dioceses and calling for prayer and action.The series of videos – produced by the Anglican Communion Environmental Network (ACEN) – is intended as a resource for Anglicans and partners who are advocating for climate justice in the run-up to the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 21) in Paris on 30 November-11 December.Typhoons in the PhilippinesThe Rt Revd Jonathan Casimina, Bishop of Davao in the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, describes the brutal consequences of increasingly severe weather events, and in particular the typhoons that have caused death and destruction in his area. He concludes, “Climate justice is the people’s demand … If we partake of the eucharist, we must be willing to become eucharist for others, blessed, broken and given”.Deforestation in northern ArgentinaIn the Diocese of Northern Argentina in the Anglican Church of South America, Bishop Nicolas Drayson relates how the lives of Indigenous people in the Chaco region have been affected by extensive and continuing deforestation: “In a very real sense the [Indigenous communities] weep for the cutting down of the forest because it is the destruction of their home. As we face climate change we mourn for the destruction of our home, our planet. The changes that are taking place don’t affect just one part of the world; they affect us all, and particularly those without a voice – the Indigenous people.”Climate change denial in AustraliaSuffragan Bishop Tom Wilmot in the Archdiocese of Perth in the Anglican Church of Australia welcomes the moral leadership provided by the Papal Encyclical Laudato Si’, reflects on the situation in Australia and, with COP 21 in view, asks for prayers for a change of heart among politicians who continue to deny the human-induced acceleration of climate change.Bishops for eco-justiceEach of the video contributors was one of the concerned bishops who met in Volmoed, South Africa earlier this year and released The World is our Host: A Call to Urgent Action for Climate Justice in response to the ‘unprecedented climate crisis’.More video messages from bishops in different parts of the Communion will be published on ACEN’s website in the coming days, including from the Anglican bishops of Swaziland and New York.Guided by the Anglican Communion Fifth Mark of Mission ‘to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth’, ACEN encourages Anglicans to support sustainable environmental practices as individuals and in the life of their communities; provides information about policies embraced by synods, councils and commissions, and especially by the international leadership structures of the Communion; and shares advocacy and information about local best practice and resources.

The are assuming, as fact, without any supporting evidence, that man CAN affect the climate by their actions. Until we employ the scientific method to validate that we CAN affect climate change, all efforts (except prayer) are futile. For example, reduce our carbon emissions by 30 % and MEASURE the effect on the climate. Is there a 30% reduction in extreme temperatures? Is there a 30% reduction in typhoons and hurricanes? Is there even a 15% reduction? How about 5%? Without validation that our actions have ANY effect, we are spinning our wheels, causing needless expenditure of resources (money and labor). How much more intelligent it would be to expend resources to COUNTER the EFFECTS of climate change (which we can measure). Move towns from flood prone areas.

Lloyd Johansson coat hangers Stirling Mortlock

first_imgTuesday Feb 20, 2007 Lloyd Johansson coat hangers Stirling Mortlock Brumbies vs Reds (Super 14) from this weekend. Low scoring game, but pretty eventful. A bit of a punchup in the first half, and then this in the second.ADVERTISEMENTStirling Mortlock cops one in the face. The fact that Lloyd Johansson has forearms the size of my thighs makes the impact serious. Mortlock is knocked out cold and is taken from the field.Johansson faced a SANZAR Judicial Officer in Brisbane & was given a two week suspension. He admitted the tackle was dangerous but stated it was not intentional but was an instinctive reflex action on an opponent taking an inside pass.The referees assessment of the tackle was exactly this, which impacted on the decision to issue a yellow card and nothing worse.The Judicial Officer however determined that the tackle was recklessly dangerous and a further penalty should be imposed as there was a need for a deterrent to combat this type of offence.But for the facts that Johanssons previous conduct had been exemplary and he had shown genuine remorse and had apologised personally to Mortlock, a longer suspension may have been appropriate.<span style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” data-mce-type=”bookmark” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Long and far goes the golden time of the Oporto’s industrial era during the so called 1st Modernity and with it the deurbanization of some parts of the city. It’s legacy has invariably been the malfunction or inadaptation of the big industrial buildings and so they are left to its own tragic fate. This shrinking “rusty” areas are real urban and architectural lab’s waiting for a new life. This fact sets on track a real opportunity to experiment and to explore new tipologies and forms of living that only this kind of space can render.Save this picture!© Alexander BogorodskiyRight at the heart of Oporto’s East Neibourghood (Barrio Oriental), the most economicaly and socialy depressed part of the city, the project gives a new hope for a couple of coal warehouses. The objective of Loft Miraflor (LMF) is to rehabilitate and refunction a centenary warehouse for dwelling purposes.Save this picture!© Alexander BogorodskiyThe project takes in account some specific particularities of this long, narrow and double heighted building where everything can happen. Without changing its morpho-tipology, the idea is to “simply” hang-up 6 wooden boxes in between the roof trusses in order to maximize the area for social interaction on the ground floor.Save this picture!© Alexander BogorodskiySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Alexander BogorodskiyOn the ground floor, the 31m long warehouse is colonized by the social areas like living-room, kitchen, dining-room and, at the end, a patio. These functional areas naturally share the open plan of the loft in a way that they continuously succeed each other with no phisical barriers.Save this picture!© Alexander BogorodskiyOn the wooden mezzanines, up on the air and hovering over the social areas, are located the private areas allowing the zenital light to come down to the social areas due to the voids in between them. This also enables the vertical communication with the first floor which is assured by three elicoidal stairs that connects the rooms to the first floor. Each room has its own private wc and window on the roof.Save this picture!© Alexander BogorodskiyProject gallerySee allShow lessExplore Brazil’s Architecture Studios Through the Lens of Marc GoodwinArchitecture NewsHotel Henry at the Richardson Olmsted Campus / Deborah Berke PartnersSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Alexander Bogorodskiy Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more
