VAT hike and inflation see consumer morale tumble

first_img CONSUMER confidence fell to just six points above its all time low, according to a Nationwide index released today.After rising to 54 in December, the index dropped to 47 last month, weighed down by a collapse in spending confidence that was mainly caused by the VAT rise and inflation, Nationwide said.The survey’s spending index plummeted by 20 points, to its lowest level (70) since November 2008.Meanwhile the expectations index, which measures confidence over the next six months, dropped by 10 points.“Less than one in five consumers believe things will improve over the next six months,” said Nationwide’s chief economist Robert Gardner.

The late Jonah Lomu was a bona fide… TAGS: FijiThe Greatest Players Rugby’s Greatest: Jonah Lomu LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby’s Greatest: Jonah Lomu Rugby’s Greatest: Rupeni CaucaunibucaKnown universally as Caucau, the Fijian wing ranks second only to Jonah Lomu for his ability to astound on the pitch. After starting out in sevens, Caucau first came to the attention of global audiences at RWC 2003 with Fiji, although not before he’d shunned All Black advances after a scintillating season with the Blues.First, there was a sensational 60m solo try against France, before being yellow-carded for fighting – a sign of things to come. Next, against Scotland, he scored within two minutes with an audacious finish in the corner. His second try was even more outrageous as he skipped and sidestepped past flailing Scots defenders from Fiji’s 22, leading the commentator to exclaim, “Give it to Caucau and he is go-go, gone!”It led to a shell-shocked Chris Paterson saying: “He can be the world’s best player, the type who can win a game almost on his own.” Fiji Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide Expandcenter_img After the World Cup, the chequebooks were out for his signature, and he plumped for Agen in the Top 14, where he stayed for five helter-skelter years, scoring 65 tries. In this period, his Test appearances were fleeting, though his scoring ratio never diminished.

Stories would drift over the Channel that Caucau had gone missing back in Fiji and was infuriating coaches but, more often than not, he’d return with a big smile, turn in a match-winning display and be forgiven. Similarly he’d frustrate national coaches and his charge sheet included a one-year ban for missing training camps and a three-month ban for testing positive for cannabis.After a spell at Toulouse, during which he propelled them into the Top 14 final with a semi-final brace v Clermont, he returned to Agen before leaving France last year. He was last heard of playing in Sri Lanka and proclaimed an interest in playing at the 2016 Olympics. A one-off. Expandlast_img read more

Cambridge beat Oxford in the 128th Varsity Match

first_imgMonday Dec 14, 2009 Cambridge beat Oxford in the 128th Varsity Match Former Wallaby lock Dan Vickerman led Cambridge to a 31-27 victory over Oxford in the annual Varsity Match at Twickenham on Thursday. It was the 128th meeting between the two prestigious University sides, a tradition that dates back to 1872.Some famous players have turned out for the two sides over the years. Most notably David Kirk, former All Blacks captain; Nick Mallet, former Springbok player and coach, now with Italy; former England flyhalf Rob Andrew; Wallaby wing Joe Roff, who captained Oxford in 2007, and more recently, Simon Danielli of Scotland.Last year former All Black hooker Anton Oliver played an instrumental part in Oxfords win over Cambridge, and this year other internationals on display were Canadian flanker Stan McKeen and former USA scrumhalf Doug Rowe.On the coaching staff, Oxford had Brian Ashton in charge, while Cambridge had the services of Shaun Edwards to help out with their defence.Dan Vickerman, who is doing a three-year Land Economy course, took part in last years loss for Cambridge so he was hoping to avenge it this time around. His team did just that, meaning that they have now won the traditional battle 61 times and Oxford 53, with 14 draws.”In my career, I’ve had the opportunity to learn from some seriously good players – George Gregan, Phil Waugh, Steve Larkham,” Vickerman said. ”Hopefully you can pass on a bit of that knowledge to some of the younger guys.”Despite having ambitions to play in next years 129th match, players can only captain their side once, making the win for Vickerman that much sweeter.”That’s the unique thing about it, you get one opportunity to captain the side and you don’t want to go out losing that one, so I’m just pretty happy we could put the best performance on and so down the track, when I’m old and grumpy, we had a win,” he said.”These sort of games epitomise why we play rugby, for the enjoyment. It’s an amateur game and everybody out there is putting their body on the line and enjoying what they’re doing and I couldn’t ask for any more.”Rugby is about winning, no matter what level you play at, and for me, winning out there was pretty special,” Vickerman said.

This house is conceived from the commission of a couple with two children, in a 596.8 m2 site located in a consolidated residential sector in Pedro de Valdivia, Concepción. The family considered the demolition of the existing house and the preservation of the vegetation, particularly a 7m high palm tree, located at the centre, that went on to determine the project of the house in the site. This was developed particularly from two volumes of one and two levels, set back from the street that configured a more hermetic façade towards the public space, providing privacy, and simultaneously a greater openness towards the interior and familiar activities.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Cristóbal CaroAs a general strategy the proposal can be expressed through its simplicity in two main aspects. The first is the interior patio, contained, in which the palm tree of the site is found, providing vitality and converting the space into the heart of the house thanks to its singularity. It is here that it is possible to appreciate and visually control all the activities developed in the house and its different uses: living room, dining room, kitchen and services on the one hand, and family room and bed rooms on the other. The following aspect is constituted by the implantation of the house on the site, that is, its distribution in two large areas or volumes: one of them public, where accesses, services and dining room are found; another more intimate and contained, towards the interior of the site, where the family room and the terrace are found on the first storey and three bed rooms and services on the second. Both sectors are linked by an enclosed corridor which is panoramic, 13m long and that evidences the family activities, both interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroSave this picture!© Cristóbal CaroIn spite of the enclosure of the entrance volume towards the street, and therefore to the North orientation, there is a sky light above that correctly lights the communal and permanent areas. In a similar way, proposing the second block on two levels the bed rooms of the higher storey have good views and are well lit. The building is thought out from simple structural criteria such as reinforced concrete in the first storey and a light steel structure on the second, with sober stone materials and textures that are well incorporated into its residential context of 1 and 2 storey houses and conventional housing typologies.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroProject gallerySee allShow lessJ House / FRARI – architecture networkSelected ProjectsMarket Street Hotel / JmarchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932708/casa-de-la-palmera-prado-arquitectos Clipboard Projects 2019last_img read more

Located high on the Cosme Velho neighborhood, the Itamonte Garage project was guided by the flexibility of the program and spaces. The 70m² area, previously used as a large warehouse, had only one room, a small bathroom, and a garage with poor lighting and ventilation. Aiming to accommodate a craft beer brewery, the space was modified, becoming one large room with an open kitchen, one suite, one bathroom, and a utility room.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThis current purpose can change in the next few years, either by the possibility of it becoming an independent apartment for rent or going back to its former use as a garage.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!Isometric drawingSave this picture!© Federico CairoliTo reduce costs and meet the requested deadline, the construction was managed by the head office and started while the working drawings were still unfinished. This dynamic enabled a closer dialogue with the team, resulting in substantial modifications throughout the process, such as the opening of windows for lighting, the discovery of materials covered by old double walls, and testing for color palettes and other materials. The Itamonte Garage renovation, therefore, was characterized by continuous redesigning that allowed the preexisting elements of the space to be highlighted.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessFundraiser Design Competition: Post Pandemic Performances-Gatherings in the times of…IdeasArchitecture of Exhibition Spaces: 23 Art Galleries around the WorldArticlesProject locationAddress:Cosme Velho, Rio de Janeiro – Estado do Rio de Janeiro, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

JustGiving reveals individual fundraisers reach 562 people on Facebook

first_imgThe event fundraising network effectAs well as reaching a large network of individuals via Facebook, many of whom are not existing supporters of the charity, individual fundraisers often inspire others to follow in their footsteps and fill places at future events. JustGiving has found that nearly one in four fundraisers will either take part in the same event for charity the next year or inspire a friend or family member to take part.This conclusion was based on a study of four major fundraising events held during 2010 and 2011. JustGiving analysed the fundraising activity of fundraisers and their sponsors in the next year. In total, 12% of fundraisers raise money for the same event in the subsequent year, while a further 11% of all sponsors of those fundraisers go on to fundraise for the same event in the subsequent year.Delegates at the event got to see demonstrations of JustGiving and ACTIVE Network’s integrated event registration and fundraising tool for UK charities and event partners.Howard Bell, Director of Partnerships at JustGiving, said: “We’ve been exploring the fundraising network effect – the idea that by participating in an event, fundraisers actually encourage their friends and families to do likewise. This data shows that not only do event fundraisers have a large online social reach, they act as inspiration for others, bringing in new advocates for their charity and new participants for their chosen event. By encouraging fundraising, event organisers give themselves a powerful word of mouth marketing tool.”Sejal Pietrzak, SVP of International at ACTIVE Network, added: “We’ve found that friends and family are huge motivators in not only participating in an event, but also fundraising, and that social media’s ability to foster participation is a critical component”.PresentationYesterday’s conference presentation has been shared by JustGiving: Online fundraising service JustGiving reports that individual fundraisers taking part in organised events reach on average 562 people on Facebook. In addition they help inspire others to take part in the same event.The statistics were based on internal justGiving data for over 300,000 fundraising pages, combined with additional data from Google Analytics and Facebook Insights.The scale of impact of the event fundraising ‘network effect’ was explained at yesterday’s conference ‘Making every step count: How to maximize participation and fundraising at your event’. Held at The Commonwealth Club in London by JustGiving and ACTIVE Network, the conference shared event fundraising insights with an audience of charity fundraisers and event organisers.
