Following approval from the FSA at the end of July, developers are working to complete the platform based on Betfair’s existing gambling programmes, funded by start-up capital from Betfair. The multilateral trading facility will allow investors to exchange contracts for difference, which provide exposure to a company without owning the shares. Goldman Sachs recently bought a 12.5 per cent stake in the LMAX venture for an undisclosed sum, though Betfair remains the majority owner. Betfair first moved into financial trading in 2008, when it launched a spin-off website called Tradefair, parts of which have been subsumed under the LMAX name. The platform will be one of a growing number of junior exchanges in the City that have sprung up since pan-European regulation opened the market to competition in 2007.American exchange operator NYSE Euronext launched a London branch in July, aimed at overseas investors who would benefit from a “much broader, more diverse and more liquid investor pool than on many of our competitors”.Multilateral trading facilities such as Chi-X and BATS have flourished in recent years as profits at the mainstream exchange struggled. The LSE cut 13 per cent of its staff in May in a bid to minimise costs. The group took a majority share in the Turquoise multilateral trading facility in February, alongside Barclays, Nomura and JP Morgan. last_img read more

After crashing 30% in a month, now may not seem to be the right time to buy FTSE 100 shares. Due to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus outbreak, further declines over the coming weeks cannot be ruled out. Therefore, things could realistically get worse before they improve.However, history shows that they are very likely to improve over the long run. Many FTSE 100 stocks now offer wide margins of safety, so today could be a good time to invest £10k, or any other amount, in a diverse range of companies.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…Over the coming years, the index’s recovery potential could significantly improve your financial prospects.Short-term risksThe FTSE 100’s recent decline highlights the extent to which investors have become concerned about the outlook for the world economy. Restrictions on freedom of movement are in place in many countries. It means many sectors could experience extremely weak operating conditions that reduce the profitability of their incumbents.This may lead to investors demanding even wider margins of safety from stocks than they currently offer, even after the FTSE 100’s 30% fall. Many stocks in the index appear to be dirt cheap at the present time. But there is a chance they may move lower in the near term should the economic outlook deteriorate further.Recovery prospectsHowever, investors who have a long-term view could benefit from buying shares today. Stocks may decline in value in the short run, but in many cases they now offer exceptional long-term recovery potential. In a wide range of sectors, FTSE 100 stocks are now trading on valuations that are well below their historic averages. And in many cases, it appears as though investors have factored-in a worsening in their financial performances over a lengthy period.The FTSE 100 has always been able to recover from its various bear markets in the past, so the chances of it doing likewise seem to be high. Therefore, buying a diverse range of shares today could prove to be a highly profitable move in the long run.Investing opportunitiesIt may seem as though holding cash or buying lower-risk assets such as bonds is a good idea. That is especially so given the FTSE 100’s decline over the past month. However, their return prospects are really unattractive due to low interest rates. Similarly, a weak UK economy is unlikely to provide a positive catalyst to the housing market.Buying financially sound FTSE 100 stocks while they offer low valuations seems to be the most logical means of investing your money today, I feel. This course of action may not produce high returns in the next 30 days. But it has the potential to positively impact on your financial situation over the coming years. For long-term investors, therefore, now seems to be an opportune moment to capitalise on the FTSE 100’s recent decline.

Argentina’s long road to historic victory over New Zealand

first_imgYet all those sacrifices paid off when they beat the All Blacks for the first time ever in their opening Tri-Nations match at Bankwest Stadium in Sydney. Rather than being undercooked for that match, the Pumas were too hot for the All Blacks to handle.They now play Australia, New Zealand and Australia again on successive weekends. Could a Tri-Nations title be their next historic achievement?However they fare in their next three games, the Pumas are sure to have inspired the next generation of rugby players in Argentina with this result.“Young kids can’t go to their home clubs to play rugby at the moment because of the virus but I’m sure they are going to feel proud of being Argentinean and being rugby players,” said Matera. “And this can bring new kids to the game.“It’s tough in Argentina and it’s tough to be here, but we wanted to show people that if you put in the work you can achieve things, if you keep going you can make it.” Can’t get to the shops?

Argentina’s long road to historic victory over New ZealandAfter Argentina’s historic 25-15 victory over New Zealand, captain Pablo Matera spoke of how tough it had been for the squad to prepare for their long-awaited return to Test rugby.The Pumas hadn’t played an International since their World Cup campaign ended 13 months ago while the Covid-19 pandemic saw the cross-border Super Rugby competition, in which most Argentina players represent the Jaguares, ended prematurely in March.Dive time: Nicolas Sanchez scores in Argentina’s win over NZ (Getty Images)In the ensuing months, the players had to find novel ways to keep fit and work on their skills while under lockdown restrictions in Argentina. Fly-half Nicolas Sanchez ran laps inside his house, hooker Santiago Socino practised for the lineout by throwing the ball to his dad on the roof of their home, scrum-half Tomas Cubelli worked on his passing in his garage.When the squad got permission to train in Argentina they had to go through various Covid-19 protocols while the quarantine procedures on arrival in Australia for this year’s Rugby Championship, which is now a Tri-Nations following South Africa’s decision not to participate, saw them isolating in their hotel and running defence drills in the team room.Some players haven’t seen their families since August while they will have been away from home for more than two months by the time the Tri-Nations ends in December.This video from the Pumas shows what the players have experienced this year… Pumas’ pride: Argentina’s players celebrate victory with their fans in Sydney (Getty Images) See how the Pumas had to train ahead of their return to Test rugbylast_img read more

However, the use of the sloping floor on the ground floor is not purposeless – it is there on investor´s reguest to accomodate movie projections as a small movie theatre. Windows and other openings are placed with respect of the external façade – each of the walls only has one opening.

R50 – cohousing is a joint building venture project in Berlin-Kreuzberg. It was initiated by the architects during the course of a concept-based award procedure for building plots and implemented in close cooperation with the clients. The building proposal is founded on a clear urban design position, robust and precisely detailed architectural design, and both a collective and individual process of occupancy.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe detached building is surrounded by various housing concepts characteristic of Berlin’s post-war period. It has six full storeys, a basement and an attic. It comprises three blocks with 19 individual apartments, one studio and various shared spaces. Underneath is a doubleheight, flexible community space which connects the building’s main access with the public street space. It is made available for neighbourhood groups and other public uses. The reinforced concrete structure was designed to minimum requirements. Combined with the reduced and partly exposed infrastructure, the modular timber facade with fixed and flexible, outward opening glazed door elements was specifically developed for this building. This combined with the all-around balconies on each level allows a direct dialogue between the building’s architecture and its use.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsMeeting the owners’ aspiration for collective and affordable living and working, the architectural concept is based on a compact and efficient structure with carefully detailed connections on different scales. It is based on a concrete skeleton with one access and two service cores, an independent timber facade and a suspended steel construction for the all around balconies. A slightly sunken basement level provides access to the building and merges private and public spaces. Each apartment and all additional community spaces were developed by an intensive process of consultations, discussions and design. Based on the structural framework the sizes of apartments could be determined and individual requirements accommodated in the floor plans. In parallel to this process, a common standard for fixtures and fittings was developed and defined, which has resulted in a collective approach to interior fittings, the use of materials and some surfaces left unfinished, whilst allowing individual layouts of the apartments. This kind of structured yet open design process has not only allowed for extensive participation, self-directed design and self-building, but has also led to mutual agreement on the type, location, size and design of spaces shared by residents. This includes the generous urban garden, which naturally blends into the landscape of the surrounding 1960s residential neighbourhood, an access ramp leading to a covered area in front of the basement, a laundry, a workshop and a roof terrace with a summer kitchen and a winter garden. The allaround balconies accompany the bright interior spaces and connect the apartments on each floor.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Andrew AlbertsR50 – cohousing is a new model typology for low-cost and affordable housing offering a maximum capacity for adaptation and flexibility throughout its lifetime. Social, cultural, economic and ecological aspects have been considered equally to define a contemporary sustainable approach to urban living. The limit set by German Energy Saving Regulations (EnEV 2009) was reduced by 30%. Another essential aspect of sustainability is the building’s particular ability to integrate into the existing urban fabric.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsProject gallerySee allShow less”Classic Japan” Episode 2: Sachio Otani’s Kyoto International Conference CenterVideosThe Origami-Inspired / Landmak ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ritterstraße 50, 10969 Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

The aim is to build confidence and self-esteem by enabling access into a working environment and by encouraging the development of new skills, through social enterprise initiatives.To encourage support, the Council match funds every £1 of private donations with a further 50p.Projects or charities that require funding support to help address these issues are invited to complete an “Expression of Interest” Form obtained from The Community Foundation for Surrey.

Labor unions condemn fascist attack

first_imgLabor unions, especially those representing education, health care and public service workers — whose members are a majority women and people of color — were swift to condemn the racist, fascist violence in Charlottesville, Va.The American Federation of Teachers, representing more than 1.6 million education workers, including teachers and other staff, issued a statement Aug. 12 condemning the fascist killing. The statement called it “a dark turning point for our country” and encouraged its members to participate in protests and vigils around the U.S.The AFT stated: “This type of domestic terrorism has pilloried communities of color, Jews and other marginalized groups throughout history. … Friday’s torch-light march showed that white supremacists are so emboldened that they don’t even feel the need to wear hoods. The violence directed at counter-protesters was meant to instill fear in the hearts of people who are fighting for a more inclusive [U.S.]. … This is a significant moment, and we must act now.”The union also noted: “As students go back to school this year, they’re going to be afraid. For too many, this type of racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia will replicate itself in our communities and on our playgrounds. It’s left many of us educators determined to discuss this with our students.”On Aug. 13, the AFT and more than two dozen leaders in its Higher Education Division issued another statement in which they hailed the counterprotesters who “did the work of bending the arc of history toward justice. We send them our solidarity and our support, our admiration for their bravery, and our commitment that we will be with them throughout whatever is to come.”The union leaders decried Trump for his racism and bigotry and demanded members of the administration “correct their course. They must reflect on their role in normalizing racism through statement and policy, and on their responsibility in creating the sense of moral license that enabled racist terrorism to manifest itself in the streets of Charlottesville and on the grounds of the University of Virginia.”‘We cannot be silent’Service Employees International President Mary Kay Henry issued a statement Aug. 12 on behalf of the union, which represents almost 2 million health care workers in the U.S. and Canada: “SEIU members condemn the violence spread by white supremacists in today’s deadly terror attack. Our hearts are heavy with grief for the families who are now dealing with the death or injury of a loved one.“This tragedy is a reminder that … we have yet to address the long legacy of racism and slavery that is deeply embedded in our history and experienced in our present day. We cannot be silent and must speak out against the violence and intimidation we have seen in Charlottesville and far too many other cities. Working people must, and we will, join together and organize our communities to eliminate racism at all levels and create a world where everyone, no matter the color of their skin, can participate, prosper and reach our full potential.”National Nurses United also condemned the fascist violence in Charlottesville. NNU Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro emphasized, “As a society, it is incumbent upon all of us to forcefully repudiate all expressions of white supremacy, racial hatred, and bigotry. Anyone familiar with the history of how white supremacy has stained our nation … cannot be surprised that continued expressions of that virulent philosophy would lead to violence today.“All … elected leaders,” said DeMoro, “starting in the White House, have a responsibility to condemn racial hatred and the violence it encourages, and disassociate from those promoting it.” The union leader praised those who took a “a stand for cultural diversity and understanding among all people. We have a long ways to go to assure the equality, civil rights and civil liberties of all our people. There’s no time to waste.”The national officers of the United Electrical Workers, representing some 35,000 workers in manufacturing, public sector and private nonprofit sector jobs, issued a Facebook statement condemning white supremacy and neo-Nazi attacks, and promising “to continue organizing in our workplaces and communities to fight racism, fascism and bigotry.”The statement goes on: “UE stands with the people of Charlottesville and all of their allies who marched against the bigots and bravely stood up to hatred, racism, and violence. Our union was founded on the principles of equality for all — regardless of who you are, where you came from, or what you believe. UE local leaders and members enforce these principles in our workplaces and communities every day. We reject Trump’s pandering to white supremacists and hatred which is contrary to the core principles of UE. [We]will fight like hell to stamp out the scourge of racism, bigotry, and hate.”Many local unions around the country took this opportunity to take a stand for social justice and urged their members via texts and email to join in protests against white supremacy and racial hatred in their cities and communities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
