Official: CDS didn’t cause Greek tragedy

first_img AN EU investigation revealed yesterday that trading in sovereign credit default swaps did not cause a spike in borrowing costs for states such as Greece this year.The report, commissioned by EU finance ministers in March, found “no conclusive evidence” that developments in the CDS market affected the cost of state borrowing.It praised the “efficiency of CDS markets in sovereign debt” and said they had little influence on bond yields even where governments faced funding difficulties.“CDS spreads for the more troubled countries seem to be low relative to the corresponding bond yield spreads, which implies that CDS spreads can hardly be considered to cause high bond yields for these countries,” the report said.It follows tough new European Commission proposals published in September that aim to tighten rules on short selling and restrict trading of CDS on sovereign debt, where investors effectively take a short position on EU government bonds.But a UK member of the European Parliament, Syed Kamall, lashed out at the draft legislation.“The paper says that restrictions on credit default swaps of sovereign bonds is bad policy. Yet this is exactly what the Commission regulation is pushing for,” he said.The Conservative MEP, said a crackdown on sovereign CDS could push up yields on government borrowing.“With rapidly rising bond yields in Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy, we certainly should not be adopting policies that could make these yields rise further,” he said.The report concluded that CDS trading even helped lower the cost of funding sovereign deficits, as by insuring the debt they enabled institutional investors to take on more and kept yields for troubled countries “lower than otherwise would be possible,” it said.

Contemplating care between generations, a family comprising of two households decides to build a house together. While the younger couple already lives in the city, the grandparents live in the countryside and are keen to move back to the proximity of urban amenities.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeSave this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeAdapting with time. For this mini-apartment building, a concept was devised capable of accommodating changing spatial demands over time. The elderly couple occupies the top apartment with generous views across the cityscape. This apartment has an elevator and level floors, making it very suitable for the elderly. The bottom apartment has an office and a direct relationship with the garden, making it ideal for a working family with young children.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeInstead of reducing vertical circulation to a necessity, it occupies the heart of the building. Omnipresent as a sculptural element in the lower apartment, the system gradually transforms into a series of voids higher up in the building. This central access system allows a ‘surplus floor’ to be combined with either apartment. Initially used as a space for guests for the topmost apartment, this space can be easily added to the lower apartment through a few elementary technical amendments.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeOpen vs. enclosed. As though a clair-obscur, the gradient in the building’s plan is emphasized in the building’s contrasting façades. The Northern façade is mostly closed to reduce thermal loss and reduce sound exposure along the busy street. Towards the South, the building opens up completely, maximizing passive solar gain and the connection with the outdoors. In between the two contrary façades, the building’s plan undergoes a gradual transformation, from compartmentalized in the North, to open-plan and structured with free-form elements towards the South. Here the building is concluded with an informal filter-like balcony layer.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeMaterial and composition. In a near elementary detailing, the building communicates its composition and materials communicate their purpose. Hence the Southern façade is clad only with minimal triple glazing window frames to underline the building’s relationship with the outdoors. The remaining structural walls are composed of large format concrete masonry, wrapped in high-grade thermal insulation. Between these walls, bare concrete slabs span 8 meters and offer a clear plane on which warmer timber elements define spatial moments. Closed and bare towards the North, light and fragile towards the South, the building is a composition of contrasts.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeProject gallerySee allShow lessWTA Design 60 Emergency Quarantine Facilities to Fight COVID-19Architecture NewsWhite Arkitekter + ReGen Villages Create First Circular, Self-Sufficient Communities…Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, Netherlands, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Better Yields in Indiana also Contribute to Harvest Pressure

first_img SHARE Indiana-yields-also-better-than-expectedEarly harvest reports have a common theme this year, better than expected. And that generalization is applying harvest pressure on the futures market. In Indiana it has been soybean harvest that is at full throttle, but can the same generalization be used for yields in the Hoosier state?Bill Gentry of Risk Management Commodities says yes, early yields are better than expected.“I think the yields stood in a lot better than most people expected,” Gentry told HAT. “I think early on the comparison was, was this year’s crop bigger than last year’s crop? For the most part, it probably is not, but I still think it’s going to be big enough and if you’ve got the 2nd or 3rd largest crop in history, especially for corn, then you’re going to have plenty to go around. As far as beans are concerned, a lot of people didn’t get the finishing rains, so we’ve got some spotty yields that aren’t up to snuff, but the bottom line is, it’s still going to be a relatively big crop. Going forward, looking for hedge pressure, we don’t expect a whole lot. We’re trading the numbers as far as what the USDA says.”Gentry also agrees with many that harvest is and will be a drawn-out affair this year.“We’ve elongated this harvest window quite a bit because of the widely varied planting times, so it’s not all coming to town at the same time. I think harvest progress is probably going to be about 25% done in beans,” Gentry said just before the weekly progress update. “Around my neighborhood that’s probably about right. The corn harvest has been very slow even though it is a lot more ready than it was a while ago, but with moisture at 30 percent it’s going to need a little bit more time in the field.”Indiana did come in at 24% of the soybeans harvested in Monday’s USDA update, 4 points ahead of the 5-year average. But at 16% harvested the Indiana corn progress is 7 points behind average.

Casa Mañana seeks to grow appeal on TCU campus

Jones. + posts Students react to spring concert announcement Alex Gaffigan Linkedin Alex Gaffigan Iconic Fort Worth Beer Can House to be torn down Linkedin Alex Gaffigan printCasa Mañana Theatre is seeking to broaden its appeal with TCU students and faculty as it begins another Broadway season.Casa Mañana has been producing live Broadway productions down the street from TCU for nearly 57 years.Casa Mañana began its season earlier this month with a local production of “Fiddler on the Roof.”Shows to come this season include “On the Pond,” “Rent,” and “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”Casa Mañana president and executive producer Wally Jones said he is hopeful that this season’s lineup of more contemporary shows will help to attract a younger audience.“This year we have ‘Rent’ on the lineup which definitely appeals to the young audience,” Jones said. “As well as ‘Spamalot’ which we hope will attract a younger crowd who are fans of Monty Python.”Exposure for Casa Mañana on the TCU campus has been difficult in previous years, but Jones said they are hopeful that a dedicated social media team will help them connect with a younger crowd.“Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, that’s where we’re driving a lot of our traffic for the younger audience,” Jones said. “We have a dedicated staff member working on constantly updating our social media profiles in an effort to keep students informed.”Casa Mañana has also dedicated some showings as student preview nights.These nights give TCU students and faculty an opportunity to see Casa Mañana’s product at a discounted price.“Our biggest promotion is our student preview night,” Jones said. “It’s really a great deal. For only $10 you can sit in the front row, and those seats typically cost around $75.”Casa Mañana’s student preview nights and lower ticket prices are gaining attraction from students looking for alternative weekend activities.Junior engineering major Blair Tyson says that the discounted tickets will help draw more TCU students to shows this season.“I love going to the theatre,” Tyson said. “But I’m also a college student, and if I had to choose what to spend money on, play tickets would get booted off of my list as a result of the expensive prices.”Junior BFA theatre major with an emphasis in acting Jesse Thomason said he believes that student preview nights will be extremely popular among students who have always wanted to attend Casa Mañana shows but can’t afford the high ticket prices.“Casa Mañana has a reputation for being probably the priciest theatre in Fort Worth, but it also has a reputation for putting on great theatre,” Thomason said. “I think it’s great as a theatre major to see as much theatre as you can, so going to these student discount nights would be beneficial.”Student preview night for “On Golden Pond” will be hosted on Friday, Nov. 6.Tickets for the show can be purchased at or in person at the Casa Mañana Box Office.
