first_imgLondon has been named as the world’s riskiest for a housing bubble after fresh data revealed that the average price of a home in the capital had hit £500,000 in September, up 10 per cent year-on-year.UBS said last week that the property market in London has formed the world’s biggest residential property price bubble, based on property prices to incomes, and property prices to rents, which are both at record highs.The Swiss bank waned that the UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index points to the risk of a “substantial price correction” in London’s property market should the fundamentals for residential property investment in the city deteriorate.The average price of a residential property in London reached £499,997 in September, according to the Land Registry, up 10 per cent on a year earlier.UBS said that London’s housing market is now the world’s least affordable, bar Hong Kong, which UBS ranks as the second-most likely city to have a property bubble.“Foreign demand (for homes in London) and demand deriving from safe-haven seekers largely explain current valuations. Global geopolitical risk and the high property valuations in Asian cities have helped to propel London house prices to new heights,” UBS said.“Domestic buyers too have contributed to the appreciation,” the bank added.Home prices in London are being primarily pushed higher by a chronic shortage of properties, and with housebuilders failing to deliver anywhere near the volume of properties required to plug the supply-demand imbalance that trend looks set to continue, according to Peter Rollings (left), CEO of Marsh & Parsons.He commented, “Most of this heat is emanating from a shortage of homes for sale, especially at the more affordable end of the London property market.”But with interest rates set to rise next year and with sales activity at the higher end of the property market in the capital slowing, talk of a housing bubble in the capital may be wide of the mark.“Sales activity is looking decidedly cooler and the million poundplus market is yet to thaw out and get moving again since suffering the repercussions of more stringent stamp duty,” Rollings added.Across England and Wales property prices rose at a more moderate rate compared to London, up 5.3 per cent in the year to September to reach an average of selling price of £187,000.The only area not to see an increase was the North East of England, where prices dropped by 0.3 per cent to just under £100,000.Reflecting on the latest land Registry data, Brian Murphy (right), Head of Lending at Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB), commented, “Generally, higher house prices are good news for existing homeowners, and not only when they come to sell. Improved housing equity means borrowers are more likely to be able to access the most competitive remortgage deals on the market. However, these benefits aren’t being felt equally across the whole country:  the North East saw a monthly and annual fall in house prices.”Improved mortgage affordability is helping to counter concerns about increasing home prices, but many mortgage borrowers are aware that today’s record-low rates will not last forever, as MAB research shows.Murphy added, “Our research shows 96 per cent of homebuyers opted for fixed rates in September in a bid to protect themselves from rising interest rates.”home prices in London London London housing bubble residential property price bubble the world’s biggest residential property price bubble UBS UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index November 11, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

first_img Enhanced leadership and more resources. Each prison now has a number of specialist staff and teams in place, including a drugs strategy manager, additional entry searching staff, and more dog handlers. Changes in the prison environment to improve decency, providing clean and decent sanitation as well as refurbished cells and shared areas. By Christmas, the start of the roll-out of violence reduction training for staff on wings. Nine of the 10 prisons have received a ‘drug diagnostic’ visit to help them understand their drug issues and improve processes and procedures A new x-ray body scanner has been installed at HMP Leeds as a project to turn around 10 of the most challenging jails gathers pace, Prisons Minister Rory Stewart announced today (Friday 4 January 2019).The scanner will allow staff to search offenders on an intelligence-led basis for drugs and other contraband concealed inside their bodies. Evidence found on prisoners can be used to support disciplinary action or criminal prosecution.The scanner will help to break the cycle of violence that is fuelled by drugs and other illegal items, meaning prisoners can start the process of rehabilitation. X-ray scanners at the other jails involved in the ‘10 Prisons Project’ will follow in the coming months.All 10 prisons have at least 4 metal-detecting wands in place and most of the prisons have trace detection machines that can be used to identify mail that might contain psychoactive substances.The project was announced in August to tackle the serious problems facing 10 of the most challenging prisons in the country. This was backed up by £10 million of funding.Other measures implemented so far include: These 10 prisons are setting the way for a new approach, a new ethos and a new direction. I am pleased to see the progress being made, and I thank the governors and staff working tirelessly to improve their prisons. With enhanced physical security, a drive to improve decency, and more training and support for staff, the prisons are showing what a difference can be made on the wings. Ultimately, this will help to prevent further reoffending and keep the public safe. Geographical groups of prisons in Yorkshire, the north Midlands and London have been selected for the project. The prisons are: Hull, Humber, Leeds, Lindholme, Moorland, Wealstun, Nottingham, Ranby, Isis and Wormwood Scrubs. We have allocated £3.3million, with the whole of the initial £10 million due to be spent by the end of this financial year. All 10 prisons now have a Drug Strategy manager, an additional 8 staff for entry searching, 4 extra drug-detection dogs and 2 extra dog handlers. one of a raft of measures to tackle violence and drugs with over £3 million allocated already to 10 of the most challenging prisons part of new approach being piloted to improve standards and security The work in these prisons will be used as a template for the wider estate and will help to inform priority areas for future investment and development. These 10 prisons are leading the way, with successful interventions being shared widely.Prisons Minister Rory Stewart said: The project is part of a wider effort to restore stability to the prison estate. This year the government has announced an additional £70 million investment in safety, security and decency.This included £16 million to improve conditions for prisoners and staff and £7 million on new security measures, such as security scanners, improved searching techniques, phone-blocking technology and a financial crime unit to target the criminal kingpins operating in prisons.This has come against a backdrop of rising prison officer numbers, with more than 4,300 now recruited and staffing levels at their highest since 2012.Notes to editorslast_img read more

first_imgSponsored by RondoWinner: Jessica DaltonHaving studied bakery at Level 1,apprentice Jessica Dalton has worked her way up through all levels to a degree. “I’m in my first year as a degree apprentice, which means I work full-time and study part-time,” she says.Dalton works in the bakery at University College Birmingham (UCB), but has been out in the wider world too, with stints at craft bakeries and Bettys of Harrogate.For the past three years she has attended Cake International where she has demonstrated sugarpaste modelling, and she has been a member of the Alliance for Bakery Students and Trainees for three years, acting as student representative. In competitions she has won many gold, silver and bronze medals.She adds: “My greatest success was making chocolates for Sophie, Countess of Wessex – it was a great project in which to get involved.”Dalton’s ultimate goal is to teach and inspire the next generation of bakers. She is full of praise for her own mentor and lecturer Dawn Gemmell, who has herself won the Outstanding Contribution to the Baking Industry category in this year’s awards (see p34): “I would love to be as good as her one day.”She has firm views on how the industry could improve: “Young people could benefit from visiting bigger, industrial bakeries to compare different job roles and environments.”Finalist: Megan RobertsDrawn to bakery from a very early age, Megan Roberts is now studying the Bakery and Patisserie Technology Degree at University College Birmingham (UCB).“For me bakery is an expression; it’s something to fall in love with,” she says. “I am very passionate about all the products I make and wish to further expand my skills and knowledge.”When she is not studying at UCB, Roberts works at Harvey Nichols, Birmingham, as demi chef de partie, pastry. She has also worked for a large retailer and at Malmaison in Birmingham.Her internship experience included making breads, cakes, pastries and chocolates, with work placements at Slatterys in Manchester, where she produced seasonal chocolate products for the shop, morning rolls for the café, as well as gateaux and small pastries, and loaves. Another internship was at the Langham Hotel, Roux at Landau.Her previous achievements include being a UK finalist in the Le Cordon Bleu Scholarship last year and winning a bronze medal in the Hotelympia Celebration Cake category.Finalist: Georgina WatsonGeorgina Watson studied bakery, patisserie and cake decorating at the Printwork campus in Leeds and has been working in NPD at Country Style Foods for two years.Her love of baking started at an early age, when she would help her mother and grandmother, and she now works with some of the UK’s largest retailers on new ideas.“It can vary from crumbles and savoury pastries to a new cheddar-topped artisan cheese bread or an olive oil-enriched rosemary and sea salt focaccia,” she explains. “Seeing retailers then putting together a marketing plan for the finished products is very satisfying.”Watson enjoys the challenge of developing products to achieve a particular look, texture and taste. “I particularly enjoy sourdough and focaccias. It’s fascinating how fermentation times and temperatures can impact on such a simple dough mix.”She also enjoys working with the rest of the development and factory teams on new ideas for briefs. “I’ve a real passion for continuous learning as it assists with innovations based on trends and new ingredients.”last_img read more

first_imgPhish is back! Tomorrow night marks the tour opener in St. Paul, Minnesota, and we couldn’t be more excited to hit the road with our favorite band for a summer of awesome tunes, intricate jams, and an incredible, new-and-improved light show!The lights have always been an important addition to Phish’s live show, with Lighting Designer Chris Kuroda known as the unofficial fifth member of the band. Starting out with psychedelic backdrops designed by bassist Mike Gordon‘s mother, Phish has always been looking for unique ways to artistically light their shows, and their lighting design has evolved into one of the best in the business. With an amazing array of different lights, Kuroda lights the band creatively and uniquely each night.Yet, missing from their repertoire have been LED light screens, which are a prevalent technology present on many modern concert tours. Kuroda and Phish once tried adding four LED ovals behind the band in 2012, but those were quickly removed after the band’s East Coast run, never quite fitting in with the rest of the show. Smaller LED lights were added in recent years, adding to the arsenal but in a minor way.Kuroda and Phish seem to be ready to fully shift into something brand new this summer. After blowing the mind of all Phish fans that attended 2015’s Magnaball in Watkings Glen, NY with the “Drive-In Set”, where the band performed behind a massive LED screen with swirling psychedelic live visuals, the band followed that up with by jamming out new song “No Men In No Man’s Land” while inside an hourglass-shaped screen, with projection mapped art covering the outside of the structure. At both shows, fans went wild as Kuroda was given brand new landscapes to play with and a whole new way to interact with Phish as they jammed.It seems the band has decided to move more in that direction with the new lighting rig they are seemingly about to debut. LED Screens envelope the stage, with three panels behind the band providing trippy visuals synced up with the music. Also, in addition to the familiar light cones the band usually has hanging above the stage, it seems are now around 40 smaller, moving individual LED screens that will provide visual content to match the screens below.  As seen in the above video, Phish rehearsed for their tour opener at the Xcel Center in St. Paul yesterday and tested out their new system. We can’t wait for Phish tour to officially start!last_img read more

first_imgAs we wrap up the year of 2018, it’s always nice to squeeze in one more conference to talk about Dell EMC storage products. For us, this was Gartner’s IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies show in Vegas. This conference traditionally gets C-level executives, storage administrators, industry analysts and decision makers together for four days to hear thought-leadership and strategies regarding technology solutions. This year was no different.According to Gartner’s numbers, the show pulled in over 2500 attendees and 120 + exhibitors with Dell EMC being one of them. As I staffed the booth to talk to customers, analysts, and professionals alike, I kept hearing, “Dell EMC, I love you guys” and “I just bought one of these,” as the attendees looked at our equipment in the booth. Simply put, people are excited about our technology and that is exactly what you want to hear at a show like this one.A lot of the conversations I had were with individuals who simply wanted to know more about our products. Most of them were pre-existing customers that are looking forward to the future and wanted to make sure they were looking at the best storage products for their data centers.One customer I spoke with, from a financial institution, really wanted to see a Dell EMC PowerMax as they had recently purchased a PowerMax 8000. They are beyond excited to take delivery and start moving their data to the world’s fastest storage array!Another customer that came by the booth was getting ready to make the move to Dell EMC Isilon. This customer works for a healthcare institution and needed the perfect solution for medical imaging storage. The hospital had used EMC products in the past and was looking forward to getting their hands on Isilon.Of course, what also makes this show so valuable is the thought-leadership presentations that are given to the attendees. Dell EMC’s Varun Chhabra presented on Data Capital. This is the idea that a company’s data is a capital asset that offers extreme value. We offer solutions that allow customers to unlock their Data Capital. Dell EMC’s Brian Payne spoke about the future and today’s emerging trends of IoT, AI, AR/VR, and Blockchain. He focused on the importance of data-driven decision making and how we can use AI to drive change that keeps customers ahead of their competition. With today’s digital economy, these were both extremely valuable presentations to attend.Our time at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference was time well spent. It is always great to get out there and speak with our customers and potential new ones about our storage products and the value and performance they can bring to their data centers. Dell EMC is a valuable partner in a customer’s journey in IT transformation and from what I heard, a partner is exactly what many customers are looking for.If we missed you this year, I hope to see you at a show in 2019!last_img read more

first_imgUniversity of Georgia Extension has been a part of Fulton County since 1914, when farm fields were as common in the metro area as shopping centers are today. Over the last century, UGA Extension has changed to meet the needs of Fulton County residents offering more lawn and garden help, youth development programs and workshops on everything from health and nutrition to household finances. On April 2, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners recognized UGA Extension’s vital and ever-evolving role in the metro-Atlanta area and joined the Fulton County UGA Extension staff in celebrating the centennial of the Cooperative Extension System in Georgia. Fulton County Commission Chairman John Eaves proclaimed April 2, 2014 as “Cooperative Extension Appreciation Day” in Fulton County. “We’re so grateful to the Fulton County Board of Commissioners for their support today and over the last 100 years,” said Menia Chester, UGA Extension coordinator for Fulton County. “We look forward to providing another 100 years of programming to the Fulton County community.” To serve all parts of the state’s largest metropolitan area, UGA Extension in Fulton County is housed in four offices. Out of offices in the northern, central and southern regions of the county, a team of five agents and six program assistants provides programming in urban agriculture, landscape safety, adult nutrition and wellness, youth development, and community service. “In our quest to feed the world’s population, we are looking to the cities,” said Susan Varlamoff, director of the Office of Environmental Sciences for the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Urban agriculture, local foods, healthy eating and exercising are the buzz words today, and UGA Extension is leading the way.” Varlamoff, who spoke on behalf of the UGA CAES at the meeting, pointed to Fulton County Extension’s nationally recognized work. She noted the county’s Fulton Fresh Mobile Farmers Market, Extension Master Gardener Volunteers’ school and community gardens, and urban agriculture projects like the Beltline Farm in Atlanta and the Serenbe eco-community in southwest Fulton County. UGA Extension was founded in 1914 through the Smith-Lever Act, a federal law that established and funded a state-by-state national network of educators who bring university-based research and practical knowledge to the public. Today, Extension in Georgia is a cooperative effort by federal, state and local government partners administered by UGA. Throughout 2014, UGA Extension is celebrating the centennial of the national Cooperative Extension System. In addition to many local events, UGA Extension has created a multi-media museum exhibit that highlights the impacts of Extension over the past century. To be located in the UGA Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries Building in Athens, the display features personal anecdotes and a timeline of important events throughout Georgia Extension’s history. The exhibit will open later this spring and be open for free public tours this summer. Extension historians are also asking Georgians affected by UGA Extension or Georgia 4-H over the years to share their story at The website shares the history of UGA Extension through articles, historic photographs, videos, timelines and personal anecdotes. Through the site, the public can explore the history of UGA Extension and the impact it’s had on the state’s history.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:The amount polluters pay for emitting carbon in the EU has hit a 10-year high, in a blow for coal power station owners and a boost for renewable energy. The price of carbon in the bloc’s emissions trading scheme reached €18 (£16) per tonne on Monday, triple the level a year ago.About 12,000 factories and power stations have to pay for every tonne of carbon they emit under the scheme, but for years an oversupply of permits has meant the cost has languished at about €5 per tonne. That is too low to spur companies to lower emissions.However, observers said the carbon price rises and further anticipated increases would begin to hurt coal operators’ profit margins and influence investment decisions.Phil MacDonald, the head of communications at Sandbag, a group that monitors the carbon market, said: “It will already be cutting into coal profits … Renewables get a big win from this and so does nuclear.”Mark Lewis, the head of research at the Carbon Tracker think tank, said although coal plant owners were bearing the brunt of the higher carbon price, they would pass it straight through to consumers.Sandrine Ferrand, a market analyst at Engie Global Markets, said the extra cost would be significant for coal, at about €11-12 extra per megawatt hour. But the incentive to switch fuels would be limited because gas prices had also increased, alongside oil prices. “So far, the carbon price is not high enough to trigger a large switch from coal-fired power generation to less polluting gas-fired power generation,” she said.More: Blow for coal power as EU carbon emissions price hits 10-year high Rise in European carbon prices a ‘big win’ for renewableslast_img read more
