IMF warns of risk of cutting

first_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp THE government would have to revisit its plans for deep spending cuts if growth substantially disappoints, the International Monetary Fund warned yesterday. Speaking at the launch of the agency’s World Economic Outlook report, which cut the UK’s projected rate of growth from 2.1 per cent to two per cent, the fund’s chief economist Olivier Blanchard said the UK’s plans would have a negative impact on growth.The comments contradict the IMF’s recent report praising the government’s plans to slash spending, and Blanchard said the warning on cutting too much, too fast applied to all advanced economics, not just the UK.The IMF reduced its forecast for world growth next year from 4.3 per cent to 4.2 per cent and warned that the global recovery could fizzle out. It highlighted the dangers associated with yawning public sector pensions stretching finances to breaking point. The IMF’s report came as the head of the World Bank praised the government’s determination to cut Britain’s huge debt, saying that its actions were “courageous and wise”. Robert Zoellick said that the debts carried by many countries after the economic crisis would potentially sow the seeds of a future crisis.

Viliame Satala hit on John Roe – Brisbane Sevens 2000

first_imgTuesday Jul 8, 2008 Viliame Satala hit on John Roe – Brisbane Sevens 2000 As you all know by now, here on Rugbydump we love showing the big hits from recent games. If there’s one thing better than seeing a big hit live though, it’s watching a big hit that’s been dug up from a while back, and would probably never have been seen again otherwise. This classic tackle from Fijian hitman Viliame Satala from eight years ago was sent to me by a Rugbydump regular. He’s gone to the effort of grabbing his old footage and getting it online, then sending us the link. That’s what we want. We need the old stuff. It’s great to watch and is where legends are made. Guys like Satala are well known for being big hitters, and in the past without the technology of today, a lot of footage goes missing. So please guys, if you have ‘classic must see RD potential ‘ footage lying around gathering dust, make a plan to get it to us so we can share your contribution with the Rugby world. Before the Chiropractor, Brian Lima , came along, The Stretcher Satala was one of the most feared players around, specifically for his ability to flatten players with his hard hitting approach to the game and precision timing of the tackle. He’s put in numerous big hits over the years, with one in particular, on Scott Fava, resulting in Fava being stretchered off the field. Another big tackle of his was featured here on RD as part of the famous Vilimoni Delasau try from the Wellington Sevens of the same year as this hit. Australian John Roe got to experience the Stretcher up close and personal as he got chopped down at the Brisbane Sevens in 2000. A great hit, from a legend of a player, this short clip is another one for the archive that will bring back some great memories for many I’m sure.

As project premises are economy, compactness, dilation of the rear open spaces, and the idea that the external image is that of a single continuous building, not fragmented. A white, smooth, rural wall, is in turn decorated with small squares of a modern trend due to the materials that compose it.Save this picture!Building PlansRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersThe dwellings are coupled in pairs, so that the level difference is addressed with jumps every two units.Each house is designed with a small entrance porch, covered and shared with one neighbor unit. On the ground floor, the kitchen and living room are laid out next to the more intimate backyard. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom also opens onto the street, seeking a better adaptation to the popular way of life. The backyard is reminiscent of a “pen” instead of an inner courtyard, although it visually extends into fields. Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The facade openings are framed with large holes, whose shape has an abstract intention of adorning a smooth wall with modern squares, as well as to bridge the level differences every two units.The back of the plot is composed of an earthen courtyard with the possibility of landscaping, very connected to the living room of the dwelling. Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Urban RegenerationEl Saucejo has a large Roma community living in a very deteriorated neighborhood, and the construction of new homes in the neighborhood has been the public administration’s commitment to improve the living conditions and environment.This social housing building for the Roma community is immersed in their peripheral neighborhood, in which the way of life is halfway between traditional housing (with the required minimum quality) and self-constructed huts.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Construction on the PeripheryIn the periphery, urbanity is diluted, turning wild, vague and ambiguous. We opt to search for the reference, a compact block in white with a great presence from the roads nearby.This site is at the boundary of urban land and agricultural land, acting as visual wall for the peripheral areas and degraded suburbs. We design an integration over the landscape that contributes to more suggestive views of the city hall. Save this picture!SectionConstruction with the EnvironmentThe units open to the backyard facing southeast, and to the landscape, which favors good light and solar heat in the different seasons. By contrast, on the main facade, facing northeast, the openings are small to avoid unfavorable heat gains.Good climatic behavior of the dwellings is guaranteed, so we design adequate cross ventilation from the backyard to the front porch.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Project gallerySee allShow lessFour Practices Re-Envision Parking in Long Island DowntownsCompetition ResultsMonde & Medias / TVK – Trévelo & Viger-Kohler + NP2FSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:El Saucejo, Sevilla, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

It launched its Facebook presence less than a month ago.Managing director Paul Furner said: “We are delighted that people are getting behind this cause, and we’re really seeing the campaign gather momentum. It is being posted all over Facebook and the clicks are coming through thick and fast now.”Converting ‘likes’ on Facebook into donations from a corporate or individual supporter is one of the most popular methods of fundraising using Facebook at the moment. Its roots lie in the click-to-give-for-free websites which came to prominence a decade or so ago with the Hunger Site and its variations covering breast cancer and demining.The Facebook ‘like’ fundraising approach has been used by a wide variety of charities recently including Amnesty International USA which was receiving $1 per ‘like’. WeDay is receiving the same sum, and has raised over $446,000 in just over a month, and aims to raise $1 million in this way. Like the TravelRepublic campaign, these campaigns usually run for a set period with a clear deadline, intended to spur action.The campaigns evidently have a mutual benefit of funds raised for the charity and audience for the corporate donor. As yet though it is not clear what the true value of a Facebook ‘like’ is. Who is doing better out of the partnership: the charity or the corporate?www.facebook.com/travelrepubliclast_img read more

Planting Crops Delayed Again, and Weather isn’t Promising

first_img By Andy Eubank – Apr 18, 2019 Planting Crops Delayed Again, and Weather isn’t Promising Home Indiana Agriculture News Planting Crops Delayed Again, and Weather isn’t Promising Facebook Twitter No-field-dry-down-comingWell, it seemed as though Indiana was starting to dry out, but we knew all along that Thursday during the overnight hours it could change in an instant. And change it did. In the first planting forecast of the season, sponsored by the Indiana Corn and Soybean Checkoffs and First Farmers Bank and Trust, Hoosier Ag Today Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says drying out those farm fields in the coming days isn’t likely.“Over the course of the next week to ten days, we don’t see a large-scale push of drying,” he explained. “With the rains that fell this past week, especially Thursday into Friday, we’ve really saturated soils again. We have only about a day’s worth of dry weather before another round of rain comes in to start this week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Then we put together a couple of dry days, but there’s a little bit of a hiccup as we head into this weekend.”Moisture chances as we close out the week only amount to a quarter of an inch, impacting maybe 60 percent of the state. But Martin says there’s the hiccup, just enough moisture that dry down is severely impeded.“Anytime you bring a little bit more moisture in, you aren’t drying down, so that interrupts a drying stretch that tries to start on Thursday and go through Friday. We’ll get back to dry weather for next Sunday and Monday, but then we gear up for more rain right as we get ready to flip the switch from April into May. I’m not sure we have enough drying weather in here to make significant inroads progress.”Warming temperatures could help with dry down, and most of the next ten days Indiana will be near normal, maybe above normal. Martin cautions the extended forecast tells the full story.“We’ve been talking all along about concern about a late-season frost,” he said. “I am seeing temperatures dip down into the middle or lower 30’s the night of the 2nd into the 3rd in May. Now, if we don’t have much crop in the ground, it probably doesn’t matter, but we still have a push or two of cold air yet to come.”Those cooler temperatures will also slow the dry down process. Bottom line: summon all your patience as the slow 2019 planting season progresses.The planting forecast is a regular Friday feature on HAT, brought to you by the Indiana Corn and Indiana Soybean Checkoffs and First Farmers Bank and Trust.
