The automaker has far more than the company target of 200 dealers to take on selling Fiats.On the company’s performance in general, Marchionne said he was “satisfied” and that the company was “well ahead of plan” for its turnaround after the bankruptcy.General Motors, which also underwent a government-sponsored bankruptcy, has filed papers for an initial public offering of its stock. Chrysler is expected to watch the GM initial public offering (IPO) closely.

British economy has come a long way

first_imgMonday 29 November 2010 9:01 pm British economy has come a long way IT is amazing how narrow our escape from disaster has been. Yesterday, on a day when the markets continued to worry about the Eurozone, the Office for Budget Responsibility’s long awaited forecasts were reassuringly benign. Unexciting, sure, and an exercise in sophisticated guesswork, evidently, but that was exactly what the doctor ordered. A year ago, it looked as if we would be the ones begging the IMF for money; no longer.There are, of course, real similarities between the UK and those parts of the Eurozone that are in crisis: UK?house prices will fall 3.1 per cent next year; the public sector will shed hundreds of thousands of jobs over the next few years (albeit fewer than previously expected); consumer spending will grow by less than GDP; and the budget deficit remains extremely large. But the big difference is that the UK appears on course to resolve its budget deficit and has very little chance of suffering another recession, thanks in the most part to the coalition’s policy of austerity. It is good news that the commentariat has moved away from its irrationally ultra-pessimistic phase of just a few weeks ago. At the time, most journalists (albeit not at City A.M.) were inserting the world “double-dip” in everything they wrote and the Labour Party was openly predicting the end of civilisation as a result of the coalition’s cuts. Since then, sanity has returned, partly because it is obvious that modest growth and job-creation has returned, partly because the Labour party has nothing to win from endlessly crying wolf and partly because the crisis all around us is unarguable proof that belt-tightening is not optional when budget deficits are out of control.The growth and borrowing numbers from the OBR are highly plausible. They may turn out to be a bit too high – or a bit too low – but they are a perfectly sensible guesstimate. GDP growth this year has been revised from 1.2 per cent to 1.8 per cent; having already created several hundred thousand jobs this year, the private sector is forecast to add a total of 1.5m by 2015, offsetting the 330,000 or so to be lost in the state sector. It has done the OBR’s credibility as an independent force (if not as an accurate forecaster) a world of good to have so badly under-estimated growth for this year. The big story of 2010 is how well the UK has done and how it has outperformed what many were predicting.Growth for next year is now seen at 2.1 per cent; for 2012, it is expected to come in at 2.6 per cent. All highly reasonable figures. The OBR’s verdict remains that the cyclically adjusted current budget will be in surplus in 2014-15, a year ahead of schedule. The forecast may be right – or it may turn out to spectacularly wrong in the event of a catastrophe abroad. But the fact that a relatively benign set of predictions from the UK’s new official forecaster haven’t been laughed out of town shows just how far the British economy has come over the past year.

The auction will close on Wednesday 13 April 2011.The association between the HSBC Waratahs and Cerebral Palsy Alliance started in 2009 with the launch of ‘Great Hands for Cerebral Palsy’. The feature fundraising effort was driven behind the auction of a special charity jersey and turned out to be a fantastic success.Last year’s charity jerseys used in the final round clash with the Hurricanes were auctioned off raising around $40,000. In addition, the season-long sale of a special charity cap produced by Canterbury – which will also be on sale in 2011 – proceeds from match program sales and other charity activities raised $94,839.The funds raised from this year’s charity match will be used to help ‘raise the roof’ of a new therapy centre for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.In 2007 a major fire devastated Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s Allambie Heights site. The jersey auction, public sale of the charity jersey, cap, rugby ball and other initiatives are helping the HSBC Waratahs contribute to rebuilding on the site, and creating a state-of-the-art physiotherapy and treatment centre for kids with cerebral palsy.Fans who don’t wish to partake in the auction can still purchase the charity strip at Rebel Sport, Canterbury Stores or the Stadium Store.

In fact, it could be a moment of evangelization. Methinks Bishop Curry would see it that way as well. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Albany, NY Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Director of Music Morristown, NJ Ray Donnelly says: March 8, 2017 at 3:06 pm Reverend Rebecca,I’m not sure what to say you and others who support allowing just anyone into our country without proper vetting. Anything can be justified with numbers (and Scripture). I chose 10 out of 1000 for 1% as an example not a fact. The vetting system you speak of the 2-3 year process is being used for those that come into our country legally and I’d have to agree that its working fairly well. However, it does not address the hordes of undocumented immigrants and refugees that have been swarming over our borders over the past several years. All those people had to do to be admitted was say the word “asylum” and they were passed through and given a court date for which a vast majority failed to appear.Lets discuss your logic for a moment. Auto accidents: vehicular transportation is a cornerstone of our culture. Without it we would have no food, jobs or an economy. Drivers must pass a test to have a license to drive. There are laws that govern the privilege of driving a motor vehicle and many lose that privilege when they violate the law. There are choices one makes the they get behind the wheel. Some make bad choices like driving intoxicated or texting while driving or driving inattentively. Those things are just some of the bad choices drivers make that cause a majority of fatal accidents. If we applied the same kinds of rules, licensing and adhering to laws for refugees then we wouldn’t be having this discussion.As for terrorist attacks per capita; If you used 3.64 billion for a base number you are may be talking about every person on planet Earth. There are many countries where terrorist attacks are more likely than in others like Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Niger, Afghanistan and recently Europe. Terror attacks are more likely to occur in countries where terrorists have gained a foot hold than in others where they have not so what is the incidence when just those countries are taken into consideration? There have been over 150,000 terrorist attacks since 1970, most of them can be attributed to the last ten or fifteen years. So that 3.64 billion number you suggest should be a lot smaller but even <1% in this or any other country would be unacceptable.Some examples of recent attacks where refugees are welcomed unfettered by extreme vetting are: France 2016, 12 attacks, 90 deaths, 453 injured, Germany 2016, 14 deaths, 76 injuries and Pakistan, too numerous to count. This year alone (2017) there are 295 incidents in more than a dozen countries. Why should risk bringing this to our country by allowing people to come improperly vetted?One other question to ponder, why are the oil rich countries of the Middle East like Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Qatar not responding to providing refuge to millions of refugees and innocent children who are suffering and dying in Syria? Why does the USA need to function as the foster parent of the world?We have an abundance of poor families with children and homeless people including veterans to feed, clothe and shelter in our own country. They are strangers too. The expected response is that we have programs for them but if they are working so well then why are there still poor and homeless?.You speak of the Gospel mandate to welcome strangers. I agree as Christians we need to follow Jesus' example but not blindly. Is it un-Christian to be cautious? I. think not.

I do not believe its over cautious to know who we are allowing in our country without knowing who they are and if they intend to do us harm. To do otherwise is foolish. P. Barnwell Collins says: [Episcopal News Service] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry joined March 1 with Anglican and Lutheran leaders in North America in issuing an Ash Wednesday message titled “Remember the Refugees and Migrants.”Curry joined Anglican Church of Canada Primate Fred Hiltz, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada National Bishop Susan C. Johnson, in sending the message. The following is the full text of the message:“On this day many people will participate in a liturgy including the Imposition of Ashes.  Some presiders blot these ashes upon our foreheads and we are reminded that we are but dust and to dust shall we return.  Others trace them upon our forehead in the sign of the cross, a reminder of the place to where the Lenten journey takes us.  Even at the outset of this holy season we are reminded that while for some the cross is a stumbling block and for others mere foolishness, it is for those who are being called, the power of God and the wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:23).  Remembering Christ crucified we are mindful not only of our personal need for repentance and renewal in doing the work of God, but indeed of the need of all humanity to repent of our indifference to the brokenness of our relationships, to the suffering of millions of people worldwide who are starving, oppressed, enslaved, or seeking sanctuary even if it be in a place far from their homeland.“This Lent we call our Churches to be continually mindful of the global refugee and migration crises, and the injustices and conflicts that have swelled the statistics to a number greater than ever in the history of the world.  We acknowledge the good work done by so many of our synods and dioceses and parishes in sponsoring refugees, welcoming them, accompanying them and advocating for them as they settle in our countries.  Similarly, we commend the compassionate work of our partner churches in other lands and intergovernmental bodies caring for migrants and refugees. We call on our Churches not to weary of this good work in the name of God.“Given the current political climate in the United States, it is important to say that while both our countries recognize the need for measures ensuring homeland security, we also stand up for the long-established policies that welcome migrants and refugees.  That is not to say any of them are not beyond reform.  But it is to say that fair and generous policies strengthen the economy of our nations and enriches the social and cultural fabric of our countries – a fabric woven by both the First Peoples of these lands and all those who have settled here through numerous waves of migration throughout our histories. “Fair and generous action and deliberations are from our perspective, deeply grounded in the Law of Moses, in the teaching of the Prophets and in the Gospel of Jesus.  For some two millennia millions of people have found consolation in the suffering of Jesus upon the cross and in his holy name they have prayed for the compassion and justice of God in the midst of the terrible circumstances of their lives – circumstances that compel them to flee their homelands, making their way over dangerous treks of land. Sometimes they find refuge in new nations and frequently they make their way to ports where they can board vessels and make what are often treacherous voyages in the hope of reaching a land free of the oppression they have known.  Some make it.  Many don’t.“May this Season of Lent be especially marked by our prayers and advocacy for refugees and migrants – on the run, in United Nations camps, in waiting, in our communities… And let it be marked by a continuing resolve in welcoming the strange in our midst, for such hospitality is in keeping with the faith we proclaim.

Christ calls us to risk loving and embracing everyone. Emily Chatfield-Lusto says: March 7, 2017 at 3:07 pm Hi Bill, The extremely thorough vetting system that has been in place in the US does a very good job at doing exactly what you (and all of us) desire when admitting refugees, which is “knowing who they are and if they intend to do us harm.” It’s been soooo good a system that NOT A SINGLE REFUGEE has ever killed anyone in an act of terror in America since the Refugee Act of 1980. But using your logic, let’s think about it this way:Chance of dying in an auto accident in your lifetime: 1 in 606.Chance of dying in an auto accident per year: 1 in 47,718.Chance of dying at the hand of refugee attack per year: 1 in 3.64 BILLLION.(Yes that is BILLION, not million… see the CATO Institute to fact check this and note that your numbers are waayyyyy off). You see, we’re totally okay with the risk of automobile use because it’s super convenient and fast, but providing refuge to millions of refugees and innocent children who are suffering and dying in Syria and around the world during the worst refugee crisis in world history is “too risky.” ?The logic dazzles the mind. Fear is driving these policies and the support of them, but fear of what? The facts and hard evidence don’t seem to factor into the equation. Christians need to be in line with the Gospel mandate and Jesus’ call to welcome the stranger as to Christ himself.

Rugby Club Plays of the Week – Rounds 15 & 16

first_imgSaturday Jun 11, 2011 Rugby Club Plays of the Week – Rounds 15 & 16 It’s time to catchup on some Plays of the Week from the Rugby Club in Australia, this time from rounds 15 and 16 of Super Rugby. There’s big hits, great tries, dancing girls, and even a bit of a bromance. By now I’m sure you’re familiar with what’s served up from the guys at the Rugby Club, Sean Maloney in particular. It’s good stuff, and basically sums up a weekend of Super Rugby in a few minutes, in a way that can only be described as, well, Australian. The good news is that the all Aussie bias has dissipated slightly, with a more rounded view on the best bits lately. That said, it is an Australian show, meant for an Australia audience only, so it’s all in good fun and as long as nobody losing an eye, we can’t really complain. A special mention goes out to Tana Umaga for his great try (aged 67) against the Blues, and gasman David Smith of the Force, who flew in against a rather minty looking Highlanders side. The Stormers were also on fire in Round 16 with some great tries, and see if you can spot Pat O’Connor’s headbutt against the Bulls. See it? Yeah, thought not. Have a good weekend, and if you’re feeling bromantic, just go with it.Time: 04:31 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Plays of the Week Related Articles 123 WEEKS AGO WATCH: France destroy Wales in Women’s Six… 138 WEEKS AGO Waikato winger scores four tries in epic… 304 WEEKS AGO The Wraparound from Rugby HQ – Week 27 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Levent Loft / Tabanlıoğlu Mimarlık

first_img Loft Save this picture!+ 9 Share Levent Loft / Tabanlıoğlu Mimarlık Turkey ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/62092/levent-loft-tabanlioglu Clipboard Architects: Tabanlıoğlu Mimarlık Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyLoft•Istanbul, Turkey Year:  Text description provided by the architects. The concept of ‘loft-living’ emerged in the 1970’s in the USA, as a solution for artists and other creative professionals in search of housing.Beyond creating an additional value economically and aesthetically, lofts today have become not only a culture and a way of life coveted by many inhabitants of large cities, but also a point of reference within contemporary architecture. Open spaces with an almost industrial tone, not fanatically divided into sections, constitute a prospect to live-work and create at the same place; they are flexible and sometimes open to public.Save this picture!The open spaces, often in converted bonded warehouses and redundant factories had a markedly industrial aesthetic. Walls were usually unplastered brickwork, services were exposed and floors were of concrete screed. The essence of a loft apartment is open, flexible, adaptable space for live/work accommodation accessible to the city. Today such accommodation is a way of life for the inhabitants of many large cities. The phenomenon highlights a cultural shift in the perception of a ‘house’ and a ‘home’ and arguably points to other shifts in the concept of ‘family’.Located on a narrow 3.870sqm site, the existing construction primarily started as an office building, between the two pharmaceutical factories Fako and Deva, perpendicular to Buyukdere Street, on Maslak-Levent axis that has been the newly developing business center of Istanbul for the last decade. Keeping the existing concrete frame, the building, re-designed within the Levent Loft concept, has taken on a new lease of life as an up-market residential enclave.Save this picture!The raw material for Levent Loft was an empty office building shaped like a train – long and thin, and made up of three separate ‘carriages’: a 12-storey block at the front, an eight-storey block at the rear, and a five-storey coupling link in between.The form of the existing structure dictated the linearity of the internal plans. The apartments range from 68 m2 to 182 m2: the larger ones are duplexes with a terrace or roof garden. This kind of layout in turn determined the profile of the people who would live here. The elongated apartments are unsuited to the sprawling requirements of family life, but are ideal for single people or couples without children. Even with this demographic, we initially had a job to convince the client that the original precast concrete coffer slabs should be left exposed and not covered with a suspended ceiling. Off-form concrete columns, exposed ductwork, floor-to-ceiling operable windows and pine floors reinforce the loft aesthetic. In the bedrooms, movable room dividers double as storage space. Further storage is provided in the basement levels, along with parking.Save this picture!sectionThe social idea underpinning the building – that of a community made up of diverse individuals – is reinforced by the physical structuring of the façade, which is perceived as an assortment of boxes. The projecting bays, with their shifting geometries, allow people to readily identify their own space from the outside. Due to the curtain system, a range of colors and light reflect from inside, as a method of benefiting functional solutions for aesthetics purposes.Save this picture!The building, consisting of 144 apartments, is not only designed as a housing facility but also it is planned to be a high quality social venue. The apartments are private and self-contained, but not isolated. The entrance is made through the lobby, designed as the essential meeting place; residents have a chance to get to know their neighbors in the shared social spaces on the ground floor. The front lobby contains a bar/restaurant; the rear block a gym, swimming pool and hammams – when you go for a steam bath you can look out the light-filled corridor onto a landscaped ‘Zen’ garden.Save this picture!plans typologyFacilities like the large car park, storage, central heating and ventilation, security, maintenance services and “intelligent house” system grant a user-friendly environment and easy access. The complex, supported by the recent technologies and professional service administration, offers a timesaving, comfortable life-style.Following the success of Levent Loft I, on the plot behind it Loft II is now under construction, with the same parentage – the same client, the same investor, same design concept. The two pharmaceutical factories flanking Levent Loft have also recently been sold. As the push for density in this part of the city increases, these are likely to be replaced with taller high-rises.Offering an efficient, tranquil ambience, Levent Loft is an elegant modern addition to the city’s skyline, accommodating a fashionable life-style in the ‘downtown’ area of the city, as an alternative to suburban condominiums.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow less2010 Restaurant Design / AIA Los AngelesArticlesIn Progress: Elbe Philharmonic Hall / Herzog and de MeuronArticlesProject locationAddress:Istanbul/Istanbul Province, TurkeyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Inglés: The House is understood as a floating volume on the mountain. A space for contemplation that it’s opened to the views and to the garden simultaneously. The building is integrated to the landscape reducing its presence just to a concrete volume. The other elements are materialized with natural stone from the site, in that way, they can be read like if they come out from the land.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe interaction in between the different volumes creates a close garden protected from the main winds of the zone. Is from this garden, where it is possible to enjoy the environment thought a spaces succession that related the outside and the inside of the house, turning them to just one space. The entrance to the house is done by a staircase excavated on the rock. Then, there’s the bedroom area level, which corresponds to the base under where the main volume is floating.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaFrom an indoor staircase, there’s the access to the main level. This level, is divided in two parts, one element that have a room opened to a in courtyard, and another one , with the main living space of the house, a big living area that allows through it an horizontal transparency that connect the sea views and the garden.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessHome Library Architecture: 63 Smart & Creative Bookcase DesignsArticlesKindergarten Xaverius College / META architectuurbureauSelected Projects Sharecenter_img ArchDaily 2018 House 1510 / Nordest Arquitectura Architects: Nordest Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project Projects CopyHouses•Spain House 1510 / Nordest ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveHouse 1510 / Nordest Arquitectura Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeNordest ArquitecturaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSpainPublished on June 30, 2020Cite: “House 1510 / Nordest Arquitectura” [Casa 1510 / Nordest Arquitectura] 30 Jun 2020.
