Henderson said that favourable currency and market movements of £3.1bn had been offset by the £100m of net outflows and the transfer of its £200m International Property Fund over to Aviva Investors.Henderson chief executive Andrew Formica warned “the risk appetite of both retail and institutional investors remains low, driven by poor economic news and volatile, albeit improving, equity markets”.Henderson’s lower-margin institutional business recorded net inflows of £200m, boosted by a strong performance in fixed income products, though that was counteracted by redemptions of £200m from the New Star Institutional Managers arm.Within higher-margin products, most of the flows came into the Horizon range, though investment trusts saw £200m of outflows.The group said its investment performance remained solid, with 67 and 65 per cent of equity and fixed income products respectively outperforming over a one-year period. The Horizon funds remained Henderson’s star performer, reflected in its inflows, with 89 per cent of assets outperforming over one year. Hedge fund performance was disappointing over the year at just 35 per cent.

Commerzbank

first_img whatsapp KCS-content AFTER losing more than €1bn in the third quarter last year, Commerzbank has limped back into the black this time around, posting net profit of €113m – well below most analysts estimates.But despite disappointing expectations, there are positives among the rubble. Commerzbank avoided posting another loss – as in the case of rival Deutsche Bank. But more importantly, it is in a good position moving forward as the German economy continues to gain pace.Much of Commerzbank’s problems stemmed from losses on commercial mortgages. These losses should ease as fewer clients run into financial difficulties.It’s troublesome integration of loss-making Dresdner Bank last year has also put pressure on income, with operating profit at the unit dropping 40 per cent in the quarter. This should ease in the coming months. With the bank’s stock down more than four per cent this may seem a good time to buy but, with speculation mounting that it may post a fourth-quarter loss, it may fall further before it mounts a recovery.

It is situated in a clearing just 50 metres from the the North Sea and the brief of the client was for “a room with a view of the sea,” that gives “the feeling of being immersed in the landscape, and to perceive the force of nature yet to be concealed by the trees.

Along the banks of the river Lek near Utrecht, a ‘ribbon’ of houses is situated outside of the winter dike only safeguarded by a lower summer dike. The first of these houses, built in 1910 and measuring 70 square meters, is a comfortable home for two. The owners fell in love with the atmosphere of the village and its beautiful floodplains, so they sought to adapt their home to their growing family.Save this picture!Courtesy of Walden StudioThe assignmentTheir wish was to expand the current dining and living room and to add a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. The maximum width of this extension was only four meters because of the adjacent natural reserve. Moreover, space for flood water had to be ensured below the house, in case of flooding.Save this picture!Courtesy of Walden StudioThe formThe ‘ribbon’ development along the dike in which the house is situated contains many openings. Inspired by this pattern, a transparent connection was realized between the existing house and the new extension. This glass connection provided the freedom to design a separate character for the extension. By placing the house on columns, the extension floats above the dike, adding extra suspense to the design and creating a sheltered exterior space. The asymmetrical gable roof gestures towards the wide view over the floodplains and is a reference to the shape of historical barns from the region. Additionally, it creates a surface for solar panels oriented to the south. The shape of the extension is modest on the street side, yet proudly overlooks the river, as seen from the garden.Save this picture!Sections A and BSave this picture!Section DThe layoutThe extension uses the existing stairwell. The living room is situated on the ground floor. On the first floor a bathroom with a skylight can be found and a bedroom with a view over the river. A transparent section connects the original building and the extension and also brings space and light into the compact home.Save this picture!Courtesy of Walden StudioDetailing and materializationInspiration for the black pine wood facade again came from the old barns in the region, which are black from the tar applied to protect the wood. The extension is placed on a steel ‘table’ of columns and beams. On top of this, the extension is made with a wood frame construction. Sustainable, renewable materials have been used such as flax insulation and window frames of Accoya wood. The underside of the extension is covered with Douglas-fir planks.Save this picture!Courtesy of Walden StudioThe extension has a clean detailing as opposed to the historically inspired form and materials. This gives the extension an elegant and contemporary feel, which contrasts on the outside with the original house. Contrary to this approach the inside of the extension corresponds with the feel of the original house in color and materialization. To conclude, the extension is a nod to traditional barns and its shape establishes a connection with its natural and cultural surroundings. As an organism standing on four legs, it stares out over the flora and fauna of the floodplains.Save this picture!Courtesy of Walden StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessSilveiro Lawyers Office / Estúdio BG + LVPN ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsThe Royal Institute of Art / Norell/RodheSelected Projects Share Lead Architects: Laurens van der Wal, Lena van der Wal House Extension Along the Dike / Walden Studio Manufacturers: VELUX Commercial, – Area:  52 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!Courtesy of Walden Studio+ 32Curated by Paula Pintos Sharelast_img read more

Big Oil Wins Big on Taxes

first_imgHome Energy Big Oil Wins Big on Taxes Previous articleA Ray of Hope for TPPNext articleFarm Safety Net Payments Forecast to be Higher in 2016 Gary Truitt Big Oil Wins Big on Taxes Monday was Tax Day and while many Americans will receive a modest refund, oil producers are raking in the big bucks, $4 billion to $6 billion, through tax incentives dating back more than 100 years. The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is pointing out that many of these century-old tax provisions never expire while the ethanol industry agreed to let its incentive expire in 2011.The Joint Committee on Taxation recently estimated that elimination of certain “fossil fuel preferences” (i.e., subsidies) would save U.S. taxpayers at least $24.5 billion — or roughly $210 per U.S. household — between 2015 and 2020.“Big Oil needing any government assistance is preposterous,” said Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen. “Why would an incumbent industry that has a virtual monopoly at the pump need taxpayer dollars to compete?”“On this tax day, Congress should seriously consider repealing this absurd and costly corporate welfare,” continued Dinneen. “Consumers will benefit when there is a truly free market in motor fuel, when alternatives like ethanol have access to the pump, when a variety of biofuel blends (E15, E25, E85) are accessible to consumers and when taxpayers no longer have to subsidize the most profitable industry on the planet. Until then, programs like the Renewable Fuel Standard are all we have to compel some level of competition and cost-control on an otherwise broken and unfair market.” By Gary Truitt – Apr 18, 2016 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARElast_img read more

As the stubble burning season (from September till January) has arrived, the Petitioners— a 3rd year law student, Aman Banka and a Class XII student, Aditya Dubey through Advocate Nikhil Jain, highlighted that stubble burning contributes to almost 40-45% of air pollution in Delhi. They therefore seek to ensure that the Air Quality Index level in Delhi-NCR does not critical levels during the stubble burning season this year, especially in view of the prevailing Covid-19 Pandemic. “The “Right To Breathe” Clean Air is an integral part of the Fundamental ‘Right to Life’ enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution of India and the said fundamental right is being violated by the failure of the Union Government and the State Governments, to keep the air pollution levels in Delhi-NCR below hazardous levels every year during the period between September to January,” they submitted. They further added, “In the Year 2019, thousands of stubble fires were lit in Punjab and Haryana by farmers to clear their fields for next sowing season, which filled the air in Delhi-NCR with Suspended Particulate Matter and resulted in the AQI levels in Delhi crossing 1000 and caused severe respiratory, ophthalmic and_ skin diseases amongst the citizens of Delhi-NCR and even resulted in death of many citizens. This was a clear violation of the Fundamental Right to Breathe of the Citizens of Delhi-NCR.” Inter alia, they have sought for issuance of necessary directions to the Respondent-States to ensure availability of appropriate stubble removing machines, free of cost, to the small and marginal farmers of the concerned states. The Petitioners have argued that stubble fires in Punjab & Haryana are a direct result of the “inability of the small & marginal farmers to purchase or rent out stubble removal machines due to financial incapacity”, which leaves them with no option but to burn the plant residue in their fields. To remedy the situation, the Petitioners have sought the following reliefs: Direct the States to fix a ceiling on the rental of stubble removing machines during the period between September, 2020 to January, 2020;Direct the States to pay to all small and marginal farmers the amount spent by them on renting the stubble removal machines;Direct the States to include the work of ‘stubble removal’ from private farms of small and marginal farmers in the list of work allowed under MNREGA so that the MNREGA workers can be used to ensure removal of stubble if and wherever stubble removal machines are not available;Direct the States to Impose heavy fines/punishment on farmers who burn stubble in their fields inspite of facilities being made available by the States to them for removal of the stubble. Apart from regulation of stubble burning, the Petitioners have urged the following directions be made to the Delhi Government: Direct that all polluting industries and construction activities in Delhi- NCR may be allowed to remain in operation only on days when the AQI level is less than 150, during the period between September, 2020 to January, 2021 and upon an increase above this AQI level an automatic ban on industrial and construction activities may become operational, which may continue till the AQI level comes below 150;Direct that in case the AQI level increases about 200 then the Odd-Even Policy of the Delhi Government with regard to vehicular traffic may automatically become operational, and may continue till the AQI level drops back below 150;Nominate a one-man commission headed by a Retired Supreme Court Judge, preferably Justice Madan Lokur, to control & supervise the efforts of the Union & State Governments to ensure that AQI levels in Delhi do not rise to hazardous levels this year. Taking serious note of the air pollution which has engulfed the Delhi-NCR area, the Supreme Court passed a slew of directions in November last year. The State Governments were directed to ensure that no further crop stubble burning takes place. Further, it imposed a ban on construction and demolition activities in Delhi and NCR. The Court had further highlighted that punishing the farmers for stubble burning was not the ultimate solution, but to provide them with the basic facilities and amenities. Stubble Burning – To Punish Farmers Is Not The Solution; Provide Them Basic Amenities : SC In January this year, the Court passed several directions, dealing right from the problem of stubble burning to vehicular emissions and construction dust in Delhi. The Central Government and the State Governments of Punjab, Haryana and UP were directed to prepare a comprehensive plan to prevent stubble burning. They were also asked to prepare a scheme for making available Combine Harvesters, Happy Seeders, Hydraulically Reversible MB Plough, Paddy Straw Chopper, Mulcher, Rotary Slasher, Zero Till Seed Drill and Rotavators and balers, especially dedicated to small and marginal farmers, either free of charge or on nominal rental basis.

We have got everything the way that we want it at both facilities.”The board approved Bazzell’s recommendation to accept the plans and move forward with the design phase of the project. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Published 10:55 pm Monday, March 19, 2012 “Hopefully, we’ll be ready to bid the project by May/June,” he said. “We will move forward immediately with the window replacement and re-roofing projects.”Included in the projects is the window replacement in three buildings on the Pike County Elementary School campus — the administration building and the 100 and 300 buildings.The capital project also includes the re-roofing of five buildings–the round building at Banks Middle School, Banks Primary School, Goshen Elementary School, the 700 building at Goshen High School and the gymnasium at Pike County High School.“The funds have been set aside for these projects,” Bazzell said.  Bazzell discussed the Charter School legislation that is before the state legislature during the current session. “I cannot support the legislation in its present form,” he said.“Although it is a good idea to have a mechanism in place for a change where schools are consistently performing poorly, I’m not sure the legislation in place is the answer because every school system in the state could have a charter school whether they have a low performing school or not.’Bazzell encouraged those in attendance to find out more about the legislation and contact their state representatives if they have concerns.The board accepted the following retirement requests:• Janie Waller as fifth grade teacher at GES, effective May 25.• Mildred Davis, Indian Education paraprofessional at PCES due to health reason.• Phyllis Wilson, facilitator of Global Studies Academy, effective at the end of the school year.• Alice Phillips from PCHS effective at the end of the school year.• Janet Campbell, second grade teacher at GES, effective May 25.• Arthur Lee Wilson, bus driver, effective May 24• Suzanne Clemmons from Banks Primary School effective May 25In other business, the board:• Approved at trip to Huntsville on April 1 for the marching band to participate in the Battle of the Bands.• Approved the request for Anita Grant, Shantell Rouse, Elena Pop, Donnella Carter, Elizabeth Grubbs and Mark Head to attend the Mega Conference July 16-20 in Mobile.

Teachers participating were Jodie Jefcoat Renee Cortner, Kathy Schofield, Pate Harrison, Brittney Whitman, Selesta Tucker, Martha Harden, Sharon Sullivan, Lisa Golden, Melinda Defee and Doug Branson. The teachers were paid $25 an hour from the State-at-Risk Student’s grant.•Approved the request to change the Troy-Pike Center for Technology Information Technology Program to a Database Design Program and the request to close the current Network Systems and Computer Service program.• Approved the Pike County High School JROTC program to take a select number of cadets to Fort Benning, Ga. on April 27. There will be no cost to the district.• Approved 10 cadets and one instructor to attend the 2nd Cycle for the JROTC Junior Cadet Leadership Camp at Ft. McClellan June 3-8. Travel will be shared with Charles Henderson High School.• Approved the contract for professional services with CDB Educational Services.• Approved students to participate in the SkillsUSA state competition in Birmingham on April 25 and 26.
