That was the lowest since November 2009 and below forecasts for a reading of 53.8.The figures are likely to reinforce concerns that Britain’s recovery is losing steam after strong growth in the second quarter, and could lend weight to Bank of England policymaker Adam Posen’s view the BoE should inject more stimulus.Meanwhile, signs that price pressures are easing and that firms still have spare production capacity should provide reassurance the BoE can leave interest rates at their record low of 0.5 percent for longer without stoking inflation.The PMI survey showed output fell back to grow at its slowest pace since last September and the employment index also fell to stand barely above the 50-level which separates expansion from contraction.“More worrying is the order book trend,” said Rob Dobson, senior economist at Markit. “This suggests that the slowdown in production has further to run.”The new orders index improved by almost two points, but the export orders index fell below 50 to show foreign demand declining for the first time since July 2009.“This mainly reflected weaker foreign demand for UK consumer goods,” the survey said, adding that respondents had reported a drop in demand from clients in mainland Europe, the United States and Russia.Foreign demand for British goods has not been as strong as experts thought it would be even though sterling has lost around a quarter of its value against other currencies since 2007.And the prospect of a pick-up in exports is looking increasingly uncertain as Britain’s key trading partners face muted growth and fiscal austerity measures.That, together with sharp cuts in government spending, mean the UK’s surprisingly robust 1.2 per cent growth between April and June could turn out to be the peak for now.

Personalize your stream and start following your favorite authors, offices and users.Go to my stream Photographs:  David FrutosSave this picture!Cabinets SchemeText description provided by the architects. This Project is based on an integral reform of an existing house in the center of Petrer (Alicante, Spain). The arrangement is distributed as follows: parking space on the ground floor, day zone on the first floor and night zone on the second floor. The existing façade has been modified with surgical care, removing only the brick parapets on the front of the balcony and unifying the two window openings that connect the living room with its terrace.Given the existing building, the objective is to create a new atmosphere, bringing the old dwelling up to date with mechanisms and languages of our present day culture. An atmosphere of calm and luminous serenity is desired, providing a sense of comfort that cares equally for body and spirit. Functionality and a utilitarian approach have been highlighted, combined with craftsmanship, imagination and innovation. A tendency towards abstraction is seen in the house, with materials reduced to their minimum essence and carefully expressed.Save this picture!© David FrutosThe starting point is the client’s wish to maximize the feeling of space. Beginning with an existing fragmented distribution, the objective is to connect and extend the rooms of the house. The quality of each square meter is its versatility, which allows for multiple uses of the space and, therefore, its apparent extension. On the first floor, the living room and the kitchen-dining room have been combined into one space, with the latter being provided with the possibility of being hermetically closed to prevent the smell of cooking spreading. This is achieved using a system of four sliding glass panels which in no way sacrifice the whole visual continuity of the set of rooms. The kitchen is no longer the marginalized place it had been in the previous home, but is now a high-tech area that has become a place for recreation and leisure.Save this picture!© David FrutosAnother of the client’s requests was to provide the home with maximum storage space and for this reason the façades, which had been encumbered with pillars and piping, have been modified, regularizing their interior perimeter and resolving all the practical questions such as installations and storage with a continuous cupboard. This enveloping cupboard integrates elements such as boxes for blinds, roller blinds, fan-coils, electricity boxes… which are always easily accessible. The façade, now an equipped wall, is no longer a simple line of separation between the interior and exterior, but an efficient wall of services which allow in light and air and which free up the rest of the space, providing the home with an excellent extra thermal insulation. The space limit is enriched, equipped and it stores.Save this picture!© David FrutosOn the upper floor there are two permanent bedrooms and a multi-use flexible room, all of which open onto the terrace. Staying with the concept of a continuous cupboard on this second floor, the perimeter of the bedrooms is provided with a folded away dressing room which coincides with the façade, becoming bedroom-dressing rooms and thus increasing the use of the area. The flexible room meets the requirements of a bedroom for use from time to time, being at the same time a small sitting room for the rest of the time. A flexible partition wall made of four wooden panels allows this room to be fully opened onto the landing when the room is not being used as a bedroom, enabling the double use and improving, moreover, the sense of space when coming up to the second floor.The house is surrounded by five-storey blocks of flats and, consequently, the lack of privacy on the terraces, which would restrict extended use of these, worried the client. The decision was taken to use sliding aluminum slats on the front of the terraces which would filter the solar and visual impact of the exterior to create an environment with the required privacy.Save this picture!© David FrutosEnergetic efficiency has been given the utmost care, providing the building with excellent thermal insulation throughout. Air-conditioning is carried out through a complete integrated installation with a solar powered heat pump which heats water in winter, distributing this through a radiant floor, and which cools water in summer, taking it to six independent fan-coils.The intention has been to provide an equal level of intensity in each part of the house and similar aesthetic attention in each of its elements. We vindicate our artistic condition, but at the same time we are technicians who work with the greatest precision and exactitude. Precision is one of the keys in the system of work in this house. Concentration and attentive activity are vital throughout the whole process. Visual refinement and the use of techniques and materials are no more than means or tools with which to accomplish the true objective sought: to make our world, and especially the environment of our daily lives, habitable. Furthermore, excellence in design is based on the integration of a network of professionals who coincide in taking pleasure in their work, bringing about an atmosphere of shared creativity capable of generating an infectious motivation.Save this picture!First Floor Plan, Original & ProposalProject gallerySee allShow lessTED: How an Obese Town Lost a Million Pounds / Mick CornettVideosPhotographer Victor Enrich Reshapes an Existing Hotel, 88 TimesArchitecture News Share Spain “COPY” CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Petrer, Spain ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/463350/refurbishment-for-tobias-and-reme-pablo-munoz-paya-arquitectos Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/463350/refurbishment-for-tobias-and-reme-pablo-munoz-paya-arquitectos Clipboard Houses “COPY”center_img Architects: Pablo Muñoz Payá Arquitectos Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© David Frutos+ 11 Share 2013 Refurbishment for Tobías & Reme / Pablo Muñoz Payá ArquitectosSave this projectSaveRefurbishment for Tobías & Reme / Pablo Muñoz Payá Arquitectos Year:  Refurbishment for Tobías & Reme / Pablo Muñoz Payá Arquitectos Photographs Projectslast_img read more

first_imgBetsey PietteWW photo: Brenda RyanWorkers World contributing editor Betsey Piette was honored with a prize at a ceremony at the International Book Fair in Havana, Cuba, for her essay on the struggle against fracking and the corporate threat to the global environment and local environments.Piette’s prize-winning essay is entitled, “Drilling into the abyss: Why hydraulic fracturing is not a solution for global energy needs or global warming.” Piette has been writing regularly about the anti-fracking struggle for the past few years, especially in Pennsylvania, and is WW’s authoritative voice on this subject.The Havana Book Fair, which ran from Feb. 14 to 22, is an enormous event, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors. There were 1,000 titles — 4 million books in total — on display. This year’s fair paid special attention to books from Angola and commemorated the 160th anniversary of José Martí’s birth.One of the fair’s events is the awarding of prizes in a contest called  “Thinking Against the Mainstream,” run by the Cuban Ministry of Culture, the Cuban Book Institute and the Social Sciences Publishing House. Some 174 essays were submitted from writers in 19 countries. Piette was awarded a special prize for her winning essay on environmental questions.The three essays submitted by U.S. writers were all from regular contributors to Workers World newspaper.Socialist Cuba has banned frackingOrganizers in Cuba report reading Piette’s message, which we reproduce here, to the award ceremony on Feb. 19:“Within the United States there is a growing movement to oppose hydraulic fracturing for shale gas and to raise awareness of the immediate and long-term danger of the unregulated industry that has unleashed a potential environmental catastrophe.  All too often our voices are ignored and our concerns are brushed aside. The natural gas industry’s sole concern appears to be how much profit it can make and how quickly. In turn, their money is used to dominate public opinion and silence opposition.“While socialist Cuba is among the handful of countries that have banned fracking, unfortunately other countries continue to open their doors to corporations promoting this technology. So it is all the more important that this international essay contest has chosen to recognize the critical importance of addressing this development and its potential long term environmental impact.“In writing my essay I was inspired by the words of Fidel Castro, who wrote ‘numerous dangers threaten us, but two of them — nuclear war and climate change — are decisive and both are ever further from approaching a solution.’ He blamed the discovery and exploration of vast reserves of shale gas as one reason the world was on an ‘inexorable march toward the abyss’ and concluded that the problem of shale gas was something ‘no political cadre or sensible person could ignore.’“It is my hope that this essay can contribute to raising global awareness of the dangers of fracking and assist those seeking to bring a halt to this dangerous process.”The winning and mentioned essays will be published in a book by the Social Sciences Publishing House. Piette’s regular coverage of the anti-fracking struggle can be found at workers.org.The other essays written by WW contributors were, “The myth of Columbus,” based on a talk by Stephanie Adohi last October, and “The GI movement in the USA, the state and the dream of revolution,” by this writer.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgA motion to remove the mandate that enforced a disciplinary complaint of “dereliction of duty” against Hasan Ali, last term’s Librarian at the Oxford Union, has failed.A Senior Disciplinary Hearing will now be organised by the Returning Officer in the next month.The disciplinary complaint, originally brought against Ali by last term’s Union President, James Langman, had been mandated by the Standing Committee last term.In this week’s Standing Committee meeting, concerns were raised as to the necessity of a Senior Disciplinary Hearing for Ali, with the current President, Ashvir Sangha, in particular noting the cost.Union Press Officer, Alexander Reut-Hobbs commented, “When the complaint was bumped to SDC [Senior Disciplinary Hearing], some members of committee began to doubt whether it was worth the time, money and effort that the SDC would take, and whether other channels could be used to voice disapproval, which would be more informal, but much less costly”.In the ensuing discussion, concerns were raised that removing the mandate would set a “worrying precedent” that the committee had the power to simply brush away such disciplinary complaints. Although removing the mandate would leave it up to Langman whether or not he wished to pursue the complaint, the impression was given that Langman was inclined to withdraw it.However, he would not have been able to withdraw the complaint unless the Standing Committee’s mandate was removed.It was stressed that removing the mandate was “not passing judgement”, only leaving it up to Langman to do as he wished.Some at the meeting also argued that as Ali was no longer in office, it would not set a worrying precedent for those who are in office.As reported by Cherwell last term, Ali was initially condemned for “failure” to host a guest speaker and providing “conflicting, contradictory and incompatible explanations of this failure to complete his official duties”.The vote’s failure, by six votes to five with two abstentions, ensures that the mandate remains in place, and so the complaint cannot be withdrawn by Langman.When asked to comment on the implications of this for Ali, and for the Union, Reut-Hobbs issued a statement on the Union’s behalf, which said, “the Union doesn’t want to say anything that will pre-judge, prejudice or pressurise the SDC hearing”.last_img read more

first_imgYesterday, a handful of Pearl Jam North American tour dates briefly leaked on the band’s website. Amidst the flurry of tour and festival announcements that customarily takes place each January, a handful of concert dates appeared on the band’s list of upcoming performances.The new dates had the band performing at Safeco Field in their native Seattle, WA on August 8th and 10th, Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula, MT on August 13th, Wrigley Field in Chicago (the home of Eddie Vedder‘s beloved Chicago Cubs) on August 18th and 20th, and at Boston’s Fenway Park on September 2nd and 4th.In addition to the dates–the majority of which are Major League Baseball stadiums, the website also briefly displayed a “The Home Shows” section of the list, perhaps indicating that the shows will take on an athletic theme and be marketed as “Home” (Seattle) and “Away” (elsewhere) shows.“The Home Shows” page on the Pearl Jam website (now removed, screenshot via Alternative Nation):You can see screenshots of the now-removed dates below courtesy of Alternative Nation: While these dates have not been confirmed by the band, and are no longer on the website, the fact that fully-detailed announcements, website updates, and custom artwork have been produced surely points toward their legitimacy, and likely portends an imminent tour announcement from the band.As of now, the only dates officially on Pearl Jam’s schedule are overseas. In March, they will head to South America for four performances including Lollapalooza events in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil, and an extra stadium show in Rio thrown in for good measure. In June and July, the band will make their way through Europe on a 14-date run stopping in the Netherlands, the U.K., Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Portugal.For more information on Pearl Jam’s touring plans, head to the band’s website.[h/t – Alternative Nation][Cover photo: Video screen shot from 8/20/16 at Wrigley Field]last_img read more
