The FTSE 250 company said last month that its paper factory in Overton ground to a halt after flaws were found with a special type of paper which is then shipped elsewhere to make bank notes.A spokesman said?production at its main plant had failed to meet “certain quality specifications”. He added: “De La Rue is confident that neither the physical security nor the security features incorporated in the paper have been compromised for any customer.” The impact of the paper mill’s problem’s on the company’s finances was unlikely to be announced in the near future, De La Rue said.Nicholas Brookes, non-executive chairman, has been appointed executive chairman, and finance director Colin Child has taken on the additional job of chief operating officer until Hussey’s replacement is named.

Home Retail has been particularly hard hit by a fall in consumer confidence because it sells discretionary goods to mostly lower income shoppers, which have not benefited as much from big falls in mortgage rates as those with higher incomes.With the group exposed to the mass market consumer through Argos and the housing market through Homebase, it is seen as vulnerable to the public sector spending cuts the government will announce later on Wednesday.“We are about to enter our busiest trading period, and whilst we are planning cautiously, we do so from a position of operational and financial strength,” said Chief Executive Terry Duddy.Home Retail, which ended the half with net cash of £327m, maintained its interim dividend at 4.7 pence.Last month Home Retail lowered its guidance for year to end-February 2011 underlying pretax profit to £250-275m, down from the £293m made in the previous year.Shares in Home Retail, which last month lost its place in the FTSE 100, have lost a quarter of their value over the last year.

Enter Your Email Address Saving for your retirement in an ISA can be a challenge for millions of people.The cost of modern living is quite high, and by the time you pay the essentials there is often very little left in the pot for the nice things in life. So putting aside money for when you retire is at the very bottom of the list of many peoples’ priorities. According to Lloyds Bank just a third of UK adults save money on a regular basis.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rock-bottom ratesFor those who have the capacity and the will to save money, it’s important to make the most of your sacrifices. Why give up that amazing holiday or new car, for example, only to have little to show for it by the time you retire? But it seems that millions of people remain content to do just that by parking their money in a low-yielding cash product.Take the Cash ISA, for example. Interest rates on these accounts have been trekking lower in recent years. And the rates offered on most have fallen further following recent Bank of England action. More reductions could be in store too, should Threadneedle Street have to cut its benchmark even further from current record lows of 0.1%. Speculation over this scenario continues to gain ground as the British economy tanks.A better ISASo what does the best-paying Cash ISA currently yield? Well, according to Compare The Market, Penrith Building Society offers the highest interest rate of 1.25%. I’m afraid that, as a long-term share investor, this figure doesn’t get my heart racing. Holders of Stocks and Shares ISAs like me can realistically expect an annual return of between 8% and 10% on their investment over, say, 10 years or more.Cash ISAs clearly have their place. I myself have one and use it solely to stash ‘rainy day’ money. I don’t make the mistake of using it to build my retirement nest egg. That simply isn’t going to happen based on current interest rates.This is why I’ve built a shares portfolio comprising FTSE 100 shares (and ones from lower indices) to help me to retire in comfort. And it’s why I plan to continue adding to my Stocks and Shares ISA despite recent volatility on financial markets.A world of opportunityThe Covid-19 crisis means that investors need to be that bit more careful before taking the plunge. Lockdown measures are being reversed in many parts of the globe, sure. But profits and balance sheets are set to remain under severe pressure as the economic impact of the pandemic develops. But that doesn’t mean individuals should seek the safety of low-yielding Cash ISAs instead.The healthcare sector is one that tends to be ‘recession proof.’ So why not buy shares in drugs developers GlaxoSmithKline or AstraZeneca, for example? The same can be said for utilities providers like power specialist National Grid or water supplier Severn Trent, as well as defence giant BAE Systems and telecoms providers like Vodafone. With the right strategy, it’s still possible to make a great return on your savings from share investing. See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

With an  approximate 350m2 for the covered areas and another 200m2 for open spaces, like pool and solarium, this house is inserted in a wooded terrain with a private beach just a five minutes walk and  the impressive scenery of Caribbean Sea. As you enter the house through a garden, you encounter a wall, which is  one of the two elements that organize and define  the project. You proceed to an open   space, that includes a built in sofa and  a relaxing and conveniently placed hammock, facing a breathtaking view of the scenery.  This entrance also leads to a long corridor defined by a set of columns, having to one side the pool and to the other the air-conditioned dinning, kitchen and social areas.  Large glass enclosed areas  that can be completely  opened to fully integrate the outside. All of the transitional areas such corridors have  three meter  height ceilings and are defined by  pergola eaves  characteristic of tropical architecture. Save this picture!© Javier GonzalesThe social areas  themselves have been designed with much taller ceilings and  a slight  inclination, in order to produce an spacious feeling of comfort. Both the bedrooms and bathrooms are    of the same height as the social areas and  all have small private  gardens in the rear, which face the forested border of the land and in the morning it is common to see monkeys passing by. The main bedroom is located in the outermost north corner of the house, with a bathroom  containing  a shower  in a glass cube from  where to enjoy  dramatic views of the sea.

Floating home by i29 architects is part of Schoonschip, a new floating village of 46 households that aims to create Europe’s most sustainable floating community. Based on an urban plan by Space&Matter, over 100 residents moved into and revitalized a disused canal and established themselves a living on the water. The location has a strong industrial past but today it is one of the most rapidly changing city parts of Amsterdam transforming into a more multi-functional living area. The new floating neighborhood is intended to be an urban ecosystem embedded within the fabric of the city: making full use of ambient energy and water for use and re-use, cycling nutrients and minimizing waste, plus creating space for natural biodiversity. Save this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersSave this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersThe site is energy self-sufficient, employs circular building practices, and serves as a showcase for sustainable living. A smart jetty connects the 46 floating households with each other and the quay. On the top surface, the jetty is a social connector where people meet. Down below the surface, the jetty is a functional and sustainable connector with all the energy, waste, and water lines attached to every household connected together.Save this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersSave this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersWithin the smart grid of the village and the given boundaries of every water plot, every single home is able to be unique in architecture and interior design. All inhabitants were allowed to choose their own preferred architect. Our client challenged us to design a home that would maximize the space within the volume boundaries of the plot and still have a typical yet surprising house shape. The floating volume has a pitched roof, but the coping of the roof is turned diagonal in the floor plan which gives an optimization in usable space on the inside and an outspoken architectural design on the outside. Save this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersSave this picture!Level 1 floor planSave this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersTo i29, architecture and interior designs are always intertwined and connected on each level to make a clear and unified experience. The floating home exterior design is the result of a space extensional study within the interior and vice versa. All areas are in open connection to the atrium which comprises three floors. The layout is extended with a split level connection to a loggia terrace just above the water level. The interior and facade play with the views on the outside. Views appear and disappear while moving through the home. The basement offers direct water-level views, the living room only gives a view of the surroundings when sitting in the lounge and the kitchen on the top floor has direct views towards the south and north side of the canal. On the top floor, a cut out of the roof enables a loggia and open terrace with a view towards the harbor in the west.Save this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersWith simple yet smart interventions this project is realized on a tight budget but still has a unified architecture and interior design that leaves a strong impression. At the same time, the floating home is extremely energy efficient, eco-friendly, and built with a small footprint. Sustainability goes even to a higher level with the implementation in the smart grid of the floating village. Energy can be even more valuable when you share it.Save this picture!© i29 / Ewout HuibersProject gallerySee allShow lessKliburn Warehouse / Dyvik KahlenSelected ProjectsThe Architecture Trends Accelerated or Reconsidered in 2020Articles Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/953912/floating-home-i29 Clipboard CopyAbout this officei29 interior architectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmsterdamOn FacebookThe NetherlandsPublished on December 28, 2020Cite: “Floating Home / i29” 28 Dec 2020.

Nathan Phillips and the face of fascism

first_imgThousands of Indigenous peoples from across the U.S. and Canada, from Guatemala and the Caribbean to Australia and Papua New Guinea, gathered on Jan. 18, for the first-ever Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, D.C. Starting outside the Bureau of Indian Affairs, people then marched to the National Mall for a rally. The march was called to raise awareness of issues affecting Indigenous nations and communities around the world, including border control, police brutality, protecting Native lands and especially the epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirits. Toward the end of the rally, some of the marchers proceeded toward the Lincoln Monument for a closing. (tinyurl.com/y8bozpxb)Among the group approaching the monument was Vietnam-era veteran and Omaha elder Nathan Phillips. This elder was drumming and singing when they entered the area where there was a crowd of MAGA-hat-wearing white male students from Covington Catholic High School in northern Kentucky. The white students began to whoop and taunt the Native marchers. They chanted and gestured with the racist Atlanta baseball fans’ “tomahawk chop” to harass and intimidate Phillips and the other Native people coming into the monument area.One of the students, Nick Sandmann, moved to confront 64-year-old Native elder Phillips, blocked him from moving and stared, inches away, in his face. Phillips reacted in the situation responsibly, as he began to sing and play the American Indian Movement song into the face of hatred. Phillips is a former director of the Native Youth Alliance; he also holds an annual ceremony honoring Indigenous veterans in Arlington National Cemetery.Covington Catholic, an expensive male-only prep school, had sent the students to D.C. to participate in the annual march against women’s reproductive rights. There were priest chaperones at the scene. According to witnesses, the priest at the monument had apparently approved of the students launching into racist anti-Native chanting.The face of a fascistCovington High has a history of racist and bigoted behavior in its student body. It has allowed students to put on “blackface” to harass Black players on opposing school teams. A young woman broadcast a video of being aggressively and threateningly harassed on the street while walking past of group of Covington students. Another video recorded the students as “looking for a fight.”Covington Diocese made the news May 2018 when student Christian Bales was banned from giving the valedictorian speech at Holy Cross high school because he is gay. (tinyurl.com/y8zx854m) Current Trump-appointee White House counsel Pat Cipollone is a Covington graduate.Native people have a history of genocide and a long memory of what genocide looks like — similar to the knowledge in the Black community of lynch mobs and slavery. Indigenous people face racist incidents every day. What was different this time? This footage went viral and everyone saw it. The face of the white student who got in Nathan Phillips’ face and blocked him from walking away from the monument was the face of genocide and hatred. Most of the faces in his crowd held that same grinning sneer — that is the face of a fascist. But this time the world was watching. Black people saw a look on a white face which is “all too familiar.” Poor whites saw rich boys acting as a public menace in D.C. and knew they’d get away with it. Antifascists saw the hate-filled faces they had seen in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017. Everyone saw the hate-filled eyes and smirk of someone who wants to hurt or kill you — the look of a racist, a woman-hater, a homophobe or a transphobe. Once you have seen that look, that face, you don’t forget it.So non-Native communities got, for once, a close-up look at that face in a near-mob attack on a Native veteran elder. And conversations erupted online about racism against Native people — among African Americans, Latinxs, Asians, Arabs, as well as whites who oppose fascism but have no consciousness about Native lives. An education about Indigenous lifeThis was an education about Indigenous life for millions. The last time this happened was briefly during the struggle against the Dakota Pipeline at Standing Rock reservation. The footage of North Dakota sheriffs using water cannons, rubber bullets and stun grenades to attack Native water protectors and land defenders at Standing Rock in freezing winter weather was rare and hard-fought-for media coverage.Native erasure (the across-the-board exclusion of Indigenous peoples and nations in the media, education and consciousness) kicked back in rapidly after the Lincoln monument incident as Covington student Nick Sandmann was coached by the Runswitch PR firm, run by a longtime Republican operative, and provided with talking points. The corporate media rushed to whitewash the racist mob and paint them as “innocent,” just as if the networks had been handed a State Dept. press release. And the well-known excuse dredged up whenever rich white youth have done crimes of havoc began to echo through the media — but “they’re good boys.”Dallas Goldtooth, spokesperson for Indigenous Environmental Network, stated, “The behavior … that the kids enacted is utterly inexcusable — the longer videos show a deeply rooted sense of superiority and privilege that white people feel toward Indigenous people.  Let’s call it out for what it is — white supremacy.”(msnbc.com, Jan. 27)Trump invited Sandmann to the White House — an act like many of his public events designed to encourage racist attacks. Native media and spokespeople — see #NativeTwitter — have received hundreds of hate mails and threats this past week. (tinyurl.com/y97stnwy)But the window was open for a short while.
