Jobless count set to rise as austerity hits

first_img UNEMPLOYMENT data published on Wednesday is expected to confirm the gloomy outlook for the UK jobs market and to show that more Britons joined the dole queue last month, intensifying fears of an austerity-induced second wave of job losses.A consensus of City economists predicts that 2,700 additional people will have been claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance (JSA) in September. This increase follows a 2,300 rise in August. The wider International Labour Organisation (ILO) unemployment measure is also forecast to rise slightly by 2,000 in the three months to August to 2.47m – an unemployment rate of 7.8 per cent. While more people are expected to have entered employment, economists expect this to be mainly due to an increase in the number of part-time workers. Next week’s Comprehensive Spending Review, which will see the axe fall on many public sector jobs, adds to the pessimism. IHS Global Insight’s Howard Archer thinks that unemployment will continue to rise and only peak in the first half of 2012 at around 2.85m, a jobless rate of nine per cent. “Major job losses are on the way in the public sector as the government slashes spending, and we doubt that the private sector will be able to fully compensate for this,” he said.“Indeed, we suspect that firms will become increasingly cautious in their employment plans, reflecting slowing growth and their concerns that the intensified fiscal squeeze will hold back expansion over the long term – and recent surveys suggest this is indeed the case.”There have been modest improvements in private sector firms’ hiring intentions but analysts agree it will be insufficient to offset the public sector cull. Investec’s Philip Shaw said: “I suspect that many firms currently have a large degree of slack in their workforces and do not need to hire.” A more flexible labour market meant that job losses were less severe in this recession than they had been in either the early 1990s or the 1980s. However, firms will not increase staff headcounts as quickly in the recovery period.After a brighter first half of 2010 for the job market – with annual average weekly earnings (total pay) growth expected to have risen by 1.7 per cent in the three months to August – few are expecting the upbeat employment news to continue.

Matthew Morgan’s stunning solo try helps Cardiff Blues to quarter finals

first_imgTuesday Jan 24, 2017 Matthew Morgan’s stunning solo try helps Cardiff Blues to quarter finals Cardiff Blues flyer Matthew Morgan scored this stunning solo try against former club Bristol at the weekend, his second of the night, helping his side to a 37-21 in their European Challenge Cup clash at Arms Park.With roughly ten minutes left in the match, Morgan cut the line with an arching run then gassed any hopes of cover defence as he dived over to score a memorable try.Morgan, later named Man of the Match, also helped Sam Warburton to score their fifth try, booking them a quarter final meeting with Gloucester.“It’s always nice to get one up over them and it’s nice to cross the line as well,” he said after tormenting his former club. “They kicked a bit loose to me in the second half which, obviously, I wasn’t complaining about. It just opened up nicely for me. There were a few gaps there.”Coach Danny Wilson said that after putting pressure on kickers, Morgan can do the rest.“He’s electric when he’s got that type of opportunity and I thought he was fantastic in that second half. If you kick loosely to him, his instinct and where to come back was superb. We saw that today and that’s why we’ve got him out there.”Morgan, still just 24, was left out of Wales’ squad for the Six Nations.Challenge Cup Quarter Finals: QF 1: (1) Ospreys v Stade Francais Paris (8)QF 2: (4) Bath Rugby v Brive (5)QF 3: (3) Edinburgh Rugby v La Rochelle (6)QF 4: (2) Gloucester Rugby v Cardiff Blues (7)ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Cley Next The Sea is a small village on the north Norfolk coast. A group of houses faces the hostile North Sea, separated from it by a salt marsh. The condition of this settlement is fragile. Though sea defences have been intermittently upgraded, rising sea levels threaten its existence in the medium term. Barry Till (a former head of Morley College) bought a house here in the 1950s as a holiday home and retreat. The house was formerly two cottages with a shared chimney stack that had been knocked into one. It is now owned by Till’s four children, one of whom, Jeremy, is dean of the school of architecture at the University of Westminster and a well-known architect, writer and thinker. Jeremy Till, along with his siblings and parents, commissioned Manalo & White Architects to undertake its refurbishment. Save this picture!© David GrandorgeRecommended ProductsMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0WoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformThe original brief was direct: there would be little ‘architecture’ in it. Roof timbers plagued by rot were to be replaced; a continuous layer of insulation would be applied to the whole envelope; the ground floor was to be made as resistant and adaptive to the effects of flooding as could be; and the energy use of services would be minimised. Construction should be cheap, and prioritise the use of salvaged materials where possible. Also importantly, a thesis was developed for the re-organisation of the spaces of the building and its material expression. The resulting composition is analogously a boat on a rock. A new highly-insulated timber roof, wall and floor structure sits on a new brick wall that is built inside the existing thick flint walls. A robust tanking membrane and layer of insulation separates the brick from the flint, though they are tied together with straps. The brick walls in the centre that enclose a bathroom are partitions only, allowing for modification if necessary in the building’s future life. Save this picture!© David GrandorgeTill did not want to see the architect’s hand when he saw the space; the detail of the building should be relaxed, even casual. This is evident on entering the large hallway, which the clients think of as a ‘sorting space’. Leading off it are a bathroom, a cupboard, a stair and two bedrooms. The walls, of an inexpensive but textured brick, have been carefully laid with a flush lime mortar. This language of brickwork is extended to a plinth made for the beds and the interior of the bathroom. Here, tiles whose adhesion would be compromised by flood water are replaced by glazed bricks, sourced cheaply as leftovers from another construction site. This material choice is pragmatic but also gives a vital character to this space, augmented by a shaft of light that drops into the open shower from a narrow but highly reflective light tube. Save this picture!© David GrandorgeThe bedrooms relate to the sea and the garden. The stark, exposed quality of their walls is relieved by curtains, fabrics and the inhabitants’ clothes that hang openly on pegs and hangers. This motif acknowledges the temporariness of occupation and is a rejection of the hotel-like quality of closets for something closer to the attitude of a Shaker house. The soffit throughout the ground floor is defined by exposed, oversized timber joists running from front to back and fixed to doubled-up joists coupled with steel that span between the brick walls. The meeting of the joists with the brickwork required a timber wall plate. The awkward junction that results from this deliberately matter-of-fact construction is concealed by a galvanised box section carrying services. It acts as both conduit and cornice. The lighting elements are articulated in a standard aluminium channel that is threaded through the joists and serves to further articulate the ceiling. Save this picture!© David GrandorgeThe tight stair at the centre of the house leads up to the homelier upper floor through a structure that could only be called a hut. This figurative element has an open roof that, allows light from above to illuminate both the stairwell and the larger space it feeds into. Separating the dining and kitchen and living spaces, it is constructed from reclaimed floorboards and contains a toilet and cupboards. The upper floor can be separated from the space below with a sliding door and hatch. When moved these reveal a perfectly ordered broom cupboard. The walls of the living spaces are articulated in cheap spruce plywood that travels the length of the upper storey, fire-treated and finished with a white translucent water-based varnish. The battens that conceal the joints between boards are a cheap solution that allows for movement but also gives a sense of measure and grain to this long space. The end walls and reveals to the large existing dormer windows are constructed from Fermacell board on studwork and finished in a warm clay paint. Save this picture!© David GrandorgeBrian Greathead, principal of Manalo & White, was taught by Jeremy Till at the Bartlett in the mid-1990s. This patronage of a former student displays a sense of generosity and has led to a client/architect relationship characterised by collaboration and improvisation. This has been reinforced by the thoughtfulness and skill of the builder, Mike Walker, who made a significant contribution to the project’s detail. The result might be described as ‘bucolic brutalism’ – architecture that is both robust and pleasurable. The language of austerity is employed humanely and delivered with wit and the scheme is a model of architectural and environmental adaptation to the severity of the natural forces that this site – indeed all global coastlines – might face in the future.Save this picture!© David GrandorgeProject gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop / Junya IshigamiArticles”Felicity: Change your city, change your life” International CompetitionArticles Share Houses ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/67372/seabank-cottage-manalo-white Clipboard 2009 Seabank Cottage / Manalo & White ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/67372/seabank-cottage-manalo-white Clipboard Year:  “COPY” Projectslast_img read more

Dickies Arena to open doors this week

first_imgTwitter Alexa Hineshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexa-hines/ printDickies Arena, Fort Worth’s new multipurpose arena, is opening its doors Saturday.This new $540 million arena will be home to shows, concerts and the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, but it doesn’t look quite like the typical rodeo arena. Upon entering, visitors are greeted by terrazzo tile work and massive chandeliers. Natural light also floods through the windows. There are four spiral staircases in the building ― two are octagonal and two are oval-shaped — with floor-to-ceiling views.A view from the bottom of one of the spiral staircases.Photo by Alexa Hines“I feel like I am getting dust in Bass Hall,” said Brad Barnes, the president and general manager of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. Dickies Arena has multiple plazas. The east Simmons Bank Plaza connects the arena complex on Montgomery Street with the Will Rogers Memorial Center on University Drive.“We really wanted this place to feel connected like a campus,” Barnes said. The plaza offers a complete view of the downtown Fort Worth skyline, a view that won’t change because the Trinity River and the Botanical Gardens are located between the two. All food and beverages in the arena will be cooked and operated in-house; the arena will not partner with a food service provider. Some food options include a pulled pork parfait, a duck confit poutine and a bison slider. Photo by Alexa HinesEach concession location will draw inspiration from a district or location in Fort Worth, said Director of Food and Beverage Julie Margolin. Some examples include Cowtown Fresh-Fare and Cultural District Creations.Since Trail Drive Management Corp, the operating entity that manages the arena, is not-for-profit, all earnings from ticket sales go toward the upkeep of the arena.Once you’re at your seat, you won’t have a bad view of the action. There is not a bad seat and each of them will be cushioned and an individual cup holder.If you miss something on the court, don’t worry. The second-largest rounded video board in the nation will be in the arena — behind Little Caesars Arena in Detroit — with underbelly screens for those seated near the floor.TCU recently announced that it will be a founding and exclusive educational partner of Dickies Arena.Photo by Alexa HinesDickies Arena will seat just under 14,000 for a basketball game, but that number will increase for concerts. While Dickies Arena is not the same size as the American Airlines Center, it does provide more floor seating. This will allow more fans to have an up-close experience and more upper-class tickets to be sold, said Matt Homan, the president and general manager of Trail Drive Management Corp.The inaugural college basketball game in the arena will be Dec. 6 when TCU plays the USC Trojans. Twenty-One Pilots will be the first concert on Nov. 8, but the big headliner is George Strait who will perform on back-to-back nights, Nov. 22-23. 106.1 KISS FM’s Jingle Ball will headline at Dickies Arena Dec. 6, bringing Lizzo, Camilla Cabello, Sam Smith, Charlie Puth, Lauv and Why Don’t We under the same roof. Other confirmed events are the 2020-22 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships, the 2020-22 American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Championships and the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball First and Second Rounds. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and community open house begins at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Activist dies in fight with intelligence officials during journalist father’s funeral

We will not forget this crime. The two press freedom predators at the head of the Islamic Republic (http://en.rsf.org/predator-ali-khamenei,37209.html) are responsible for this courageous woman’s death.”“We insist that the authorities shed light on all the circumstances of this murder. Those responsible must be tried and sentenced. The violence that the regime uses against its opponents is appalling. It not only bans all of their activities but also tries to erase them from society and the collective memory.” News RSF_en Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Follow the news on Iran Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Aged 56, Haleh Sahabi had known the suffering of the families of prisoners of conscience all her life. Since her childhood, her father and other relatives had spent spells in prison under two successive regimes. As her result of her activities in support of the families of political prisoners who had been executed during the 1980s, she became a spokesperson for the victims of political oppression – something the regime could not tolerate.After being summoned and arrested several times, she was sentenced to two years in prison. While still serving this sentence, she had been granted a provisional release because of her father’s serious health problems and hospitalization.Her father helped to found Iran-é-Farda, one of Iran’s first independent newspapers. Published from 1992 to May 2000, when it was closed by the authorities, it was widely read in reformist circles and was very popular with students.A Tehran revolutionary court placed Ezatollah Sahabi in detention on 26 June 2000 for attending an allegedly “anti-Islamic” conference in Berlin the previous April. He was jailed again on a charge of “anti-government propaganda” on 17 December 2000, above all because of a speech he had given at Tehran’s Amir-Kabir Technical University three weeks earlier, and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison on 13 January 2001.After a prison visit in February 2001, his family said it was “shocked” by his physical and mental condition and the fact that he did not even recognize his relatives. He was hospitalized twice while detained, after suffering heart attacks. His sentence was reduced to six months in December 2001 and he was finally released on 2 March 2002.His and his daughter’s deaths leave a void in the pro-democracy movement and fight for freedom of expression in Iran.

The strikers will call for the release of the detained journalists and will condemn the unexplained murder of journalist Zahra Kazemi while in custody.Secretary-general Robert Ménard said the announced strike was symptomatic of the discontent within the profession, pointing out that Reporters Without Borders had registered more than 50 cases of journalists being arrested or called in for questioning over a month. A total of 24 journalists were currently in prison and Reporters Without Borders called for their release, he said.”Not a week goes by without their coming under more pressure,” Ménard said. “Any of them can be arrested at any moment under any pretext. How can they work in such conditions? And how can they not be afraid when they know that several of the journalists currently detained are being held by the staff of Tehran public prosecutor Said Mortazavi and Revolutionary Guards in the same centre where Zahra Kazemi received the blows that caused her death?”Reporters Without Borders voiced particular concern about the conditions in which some of these journalists are being held. The wife of Reza Alijani, detained since 14 June, told the ISNA news agency that she did not recognise her husband during her last prison visit because he had lost so much weight. The wife of Taghi Rahmani has received no word of him since his arrest on 14 June. Her requests to visit him have all been turned down, as have the requests made by the wives of several other detained journalists. Follow the news on Iranlast_img read more

He also caught one pass for 38 yards.“I came out ready to play, feeling good and expecting to get a lot of carries,” Harris said. “We came through, kept with it, and it paid off in the end.”La Salle quarterback Jake Caan was 9 of 18 for 134 yards and was intercepted once.David Gladish completed 5 of 9 passes for 129 yards, including a 60-yard TD strike to Isaiah Veal for the Cardinals.“We played well, but we still have to get better,” Bishop Diego coach Tom Crawford said. “We were inconsistent, but stepped up to the physical play we know we have to when we play a quality team like La Salle.”Looking back on the ground war between Milliner and Harris, Crawford just smiled and said, “between both Harris and (Milliner), I don’t know how many missed tackles there were. They do not go down easily.”Box Score:Bishop Diego: 7-14-0-7-(35)La Salle: 0-0-0-21-(21)Scoring:BD: Isaiah Veal 60 pass from David Gladish at 3:49 1Q (Jack Luckhurst kick)BD: Mark Soracco 8 run at 9:12 2Q (Luckhurst kick)BD: John Harris 8 run at 0:48 2Q (Luckhurst kick)BD: Harris 3run at 11:08 4Q (Luckhurst kick)LS: Amon Milliner 72 run at 10:22 4Q (Johnny Clarizio kick)LS: Milliner 2 run at 6:10 4Q (Clarizio kick)BD: Harris 6 run at 5:11 4Q ( Luckhurst kick)LS: Milliner 21 run at 4:26 4Q (Clarizio kick)Offensive Leaders:Passing: David Gladish (BD) 5 of 9 for 129 yards, 1 TD; Jake Caan (LS) 9 of 18 for 134 yards, 1 INT.Rushing: Amon Milliner (LS) 23 for 262 yards, 3 TD’s; John Harris (BD) 35 for 255 yards 3 TD’s; Mark Soracco (BD) 7 for 35 yards, 1TD.Receiving: Isaiah Veal (BD) 3 catches for 90 yards, 1 TD; Tommy Radle (LS) 4 catches for 53 yards; Amon Milliner (LS) 3 catches for 42 yards.
