Wednesday 23 February 2011 8:37 pm CAPITAL Shopping Centres (CSC), the UK’s largest mall owner, will squeeze organic revenue and profit growth from its portfolio of prime assets in 2011, ahead of chasing more blue-chip mall acquisitions.Chief executive David Fischel said yesterday CSC’s main focus this year was to drive growth in like-for-like rental income, and enhance and extend existing assets.CSC also needs to integrate its newly-acquired Trafford Centre in Manchester. The £863m buy was opposed by US mall owner and CSC shareholder Simon Property , which dropped a bid for CSC in January. The company, which owns 14 prime UK malls, booked net asset value (NAV) per share of 390p for the year to the end of December, up from 339p a year earlier.It has identified 1.4m square feet of extension opportunities at its existing properties, offering better returns than a new development, it said yesterday. Including the Trafford Centre, CSC has about 15.5m square feet of retail floor space. Full-year net rental income from continuing operations was £277m, from £267m in 2009.Panmure analysts said in a note: “We remain happy with our 2011 estimated NAV forecast of 400p and continue to believe this looks a fair level for the shares to trade at.” Tags: NULL Capital Shopping shuns acquisitions in move to make more cash from malls whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com Share KCS-content whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald Show Comments ▼

Plate Winners of the Old Newtonians RFC Veterans Tournament 2012IRISH INTERNATIONAL Veterans have bestowed Hammersmith and Fulham RFC the honour of playing in a charity curtain raiser against Bective Rangers RFC, before the fourth annual Stuart Mangan Memorial Cup clash between England and Ireland Legends, in Donnybrook on Friday February 9th.The fixture named in honour of Stuart Mangan, who tragically died in 2009 following a tragic spinal injury suffered whilst playing for Hammersmith and Fulham, has greater intentions, and that’s to raise as much money as possible in Stuart’s memory, for the RFU Injured Players Foundation and the IRFU Charitable Trust.While in hospital Stuart met Matt Hampson, England U20’s prop who suffered a similar spinal injury, and it’s here the idea for an England v Ireland Legends game was born. However, it’s the drive and determination of some, including ex-England A wing Harvey Thorneycroft, Martin Corry, Jason Leonard and Shane Byrne, that has seen the fixture flourish and successfully raise huge funds for many charitable organisations. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS So far team-mates at Hammersmith and Fulham RFC, who have been greatly affected by Stuart’s death, have raised over £100,000 for the Stuart Mangan Appeal. 43 Vets are making the trip to Dublin. They are all funding their own tour and have collectively pledged to raise at least £10,000, but we hope with your help to raise in excess of £25,000. The HFRFC Vets v Bective Rangers RFC match kicks off at 5:30, and if you’re in Dublin, tickets can be bought via Ticketmaster But, if you can’t make it, dig deep and support this worthy cause by donating here.

The scheme was set up to encourage more young people to consider being involved in ministry and focus on the nine criteria used in the selection of clergy.The scheme is currently being run in the dioceses of Sodor and Man, Newcastle, Peterborough and the Stepney area of London. Ministry Division are working with 15 more dioceses interested in the scheme, with a view to provide a CEMES programme in every diocese.The Bishop of Sheffield, the Rt. Rev. Steven Croft, who is chair of Ministry Division said: “The Church of England has a fresh vision and commitment to see people in their teens and twenties exploring God’s call to ministry. The Ministry Experience scheme will help many young people explore that call in the years to come”The Rev. Canon Steve Benoy, diocesan director of ordinands in Peterborough, said: “The scheme is not rocket science. Similar schemes have existed in many organizations and churches. The gap in the market, however, has been for a program which intentionally connects with the processes and criteria for ordination in the Church of England. We are not trying to squeeze people into a dog collar if that is not their vocation. The CEMES genuinely offers a broad space for young people to explore their sense of calling in ministry.”The Rev. Fiona Green, director of the intern program in Stepney, who is overseeing four young people involved in the program in London said: “It’s both about supporting mission and ministry but also testing the vocations of people who are thinking about ministry.Applications for the 2014-15 academic year, which begins on Sept. 1, will be available in the spring.NotesThe Church of England Ministry Experience Scheme (CEMES) is a scheme that has been centrally developed by Ministry Division and can be run by Dioceses to promote ministry among young people.The Church of England follows guidelines set out by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development regarding voluntary schemes, the “Internship Charter”, and provides a quality assured program that is delivered in conjunction with local parishes, Dioceses and Ministry Division. CEMES adheres to the six principles of the CIPD ‘internship charter’ and seeks to provide young people with the relevant experience of ministry in order to provide the opportunity for proper discernment of an ordained calling. More details can be found under “Interns” here.The scheme is free for participants and a subsistence allowance is provided, and training costs and cost of travel is met. Members of the scheme are additionally eligible for a centrally distributed grant from Ministry Division to support with the costs of participating in the program.

Las oraciones de la Comunión acompañan a los primados que se dirigen a reunión en Cantórbery [Episcopal News Service] A la Comunión Anglicana le han pedido que ore mientras sus 38 primados —los principales arzobispos, obispos presidentes y moderadores— se dirigen a Cantórbery, Inglaterra, la semana entrante, para su primera reunión oficial en cinco años.“Invito a los episcopales a orar conmigo por esta reunión, en la que Dios estará plenamente presente con nosotros y en la que podemos seguir a nuestro Señor Jesús en los caminos de Su amor y de este modo siendo parte de la bendición de Dios para el mundo” dijo Michael B. Curry, el obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal en una declaración emitida el 7 de enero.Curry asistirá a la primera reunión de los primados desde su instalación como obispo presidente y primado de la iglesia episcopal en noviembre pasado.A principios de esta semana, el arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, envió un mensaje en vídeo en el que hacía un llamado a la oración y reconocía que se espera que los primados se enfrenten con “algunos problemas muy, muy difíciles dentro de la vida de la Comunión Anglicana, pero también a problemas inmensamente difíciles que afectan a toda la Iglesia de Cristo y a todo nuestro mundo”.La agenda [de la reunión] se establecerá de común acuerdo con todos los primados al comienzo de su reunión [que se prolongará] del 11 al 16 de enero en la catedral de Cantórbery, a la que se le considera la iglesia madre de la Comunión Anglicana. Entre los asuntos que han de abordarse durante la reunión se espera estén incluidos la violencia motivada por la religión, la protección de los niños y los adultos vulnerables, el medioambiente y la sexualidad humana, según un comunicado de prensa del Palacio de Lambeth.“Por lo que más le pediría al pueblo [de la Iglesia] que orara es por sabiduría y amor”, dijo Welby, que ha visitado todas las provincias de la Comunión Anglicana desde que se convirtió en arzobispo de Cantórbery en 2013, un compromiso que él contrajo al principio de su primacía.La última Reunión de los Primados tuvo lugar en Dublín, Irlanda, en enero de 2011, siendo éste el más largo período de tiempo entre dos reuniones desde que comenzaran en 1979.Siete primados decidieron no asistir a esa reunión debido a la presencia de la entonces obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori y de acontecimientos que habían tenido lugar dentro de la Iglesia Episcopal y la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá en respaldo a la plena inclusión de personas homosexuales.En un esfuerzo por evitar un boicot semejante, Welby ha invitado al arzobispo Foley Beach, líder de la Iglesia Anglicana en América del Norte (ACNA, por su sigla en inglés), a reunirse con los primados en una conversación antes de que comience oficialmente la Reunión de los Primados.La ACNA está compuesta en gran medida por ex episcopales que decidieron separarse de la Iglesia Episcopal por desacuerdos en lo concerniente a los asuntos de la sexualidad humana. Los líderes de algunas provincias, principalmente en África, han declarado su afiliación a la ACNA y afirman estar en estado de comunión disminuida con la Iglesia Episcopal y otras provincias cuyas actuaciones cuestionan.El arzobispo Stanley Ntagali, de la Iglesia Anglicana de Uganda, emitió una declaración el 6 de enero que la que pedía que, durante el “encuentro” en Cantórbery se restaurara “la disciplina y el orden devoto” en la Comunión Anglicana —de lo contrario advirtió que se retiraría de la próxima reunión oficial.El arzobispo Fred Hiltz, de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá, expresó su esperanza de que la agenda “reflejaría un buen equilibrio entre los asuntos que son internos y de interés particular dentro de la familia de la fe, y los asuntos que son globales y de acuciante interés para nuestra común humanidad y para nuestro hogar común, la Tierra misma”.En su declaración del 7 de enero, Hiltz hizo particular referencia a la respuesta de la Iglesia a la crisis mundial de los refugiados, al cambio climático y al progreso de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de las Naciones Unidas.Curry, luego de su histórica elección como obispo primado en junio de 2015, le dijo a ENS que la Comunión Anglicana tiene tanto que ver con las relaciones como con la estructura y la organización. “En verdad es una red de relaciones que tiene raíces históricas, pero realmente tiene raíces misionales”, afirmó. “Lo que realmente nos vincula es que somos seguidores de Jesús en la vía anglicana… y esas relaciones primordiales nos mantiene unidos.“Por supuesto, tenemos discrepancias —tenemos discrepancias, lo sé— pero sí creo que podemos seguir trabajando juntos en asociaciones, de manera que ayudemos a cumplir la misión de Dios en este mundo uniéndonos para ayudar a que los niños no se vayan a dormir con hambre, para ayudar a que la gente tenga agua, para ayudar a que la educación llegue a los niños, para ayudar a que las mujeres puedan sostener a sus familias. tenemos algo que hacer; tenemos alguna tarea de Jesús que hacer … Este mundo clama por nosotros y nos necesita, y la Comunión Anglicana es una manera en que Dios nos usa unidos para hacer realmente de este mundo un mundo mejor”.Se ha estrenado una página web con materiales relativos a la reunión que incluirá colectas y peticiones de oración mientras los primados se encuentren reunidos.Los primados son los principales arzobispos y obispos presidentes electos o nombrados para dirigir cada una de las 38 provincias autónomas de la Comunión Anglicana. El arzobispo de Cantórbery los invita a la Reunión de los Primados para consultas sobre asuntos teológicos, sociales e internacionales.La Reunión de los Primados de la Comunión Anglicana es uno de los tres instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros dos la Conferencia de Lambeth [que reúne a todos los obispos de la Comunión] y el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo normativo de la Comunión. Al arzobispo de Cantórbery, como primus inter pares, o “primero entre iguales” se le reconoce como el centro de la unidad de la Comunión Anglicana.Cada provincia se relaciona con las otras provincias dentro de la Comunión Anglicana por estar en plena comunión con la Sede de Cantórbery. El arzobispo de Cantórbery convoca la Conferencia de Lambeth, preside la Reunión de los Primados y es el presidente del CCA.En algunas provincias anglicanas al primado se le llama arzobispo o metropolitano, o ambas cosas, mientras en otras se usa el término de obispo presidente, o de primus [otra manera de decir primado] como en Escocia.El arzobispo de Cantórbery también invita a las reuniones de primados a los moderadores que presiden las iglesias ecuménicas unidas del Norte de la India, el Sur de la India y Pakistán.En 1978, el arzobispo Donald Coggan, el 101er. arzobispo de Cantórbery, estableció la Reunión de los Primados como una oportunidad de “meditación pausada, oración y consulta a profundidad”.Los primados se han reunido en Ely, Inglaterra, en 1979; Washington, D.C., en 1971; Limurú, Kenia, en 1983; Toronto, Canadá, en 1986; Chipre en 1989; Newcastle, Irlanda del Norte, en 1991; Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica, en 1993; Windsor, Inglaterra, en 1995; Jerusalén en 1997; Oporto, Portugal, en 2000; Centro de Conferencias de Kanuga, Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte, en 2001; Cantórbery, Inglaterra, en 2002; Gramodo, Brasil, en mayo de 2003; Londres, Inglaterra, en octubre de 2003; Newry, Irlanda del Norte, en febrero de 2005; Dar es-Salam, Tanzania, en febrero de 2007; Alejandría, Egipto, en febrero de 2009 y Dublín, Irlanda, en enero de 2011.Las provincias y primados de la Comunión Anglicana aparecen listados aquí.Visite la página web oficial de los Primados 2016Siga a @Primates2016 en Twitter– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Architects: Humberto Hermeto Year Completion year of this architecture project Text description provided by the architects. The premise of the project was to have a house as a platform with all the spaces in a single level (which should be as high as possible to take advantage of existing views). The owners had already purchased a lot, and off comes the complicated topography of the proposal. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWith an average incline of 68% in the front of the property (more specifically in its first 10 meters), the ground presents the first obstacle to overcome: land works. A first simulation had a ramp going up but the cost of displacing dirt was so high that the idea was not feasible (the cost of moving earth and building foundations for the ramp exceeded the price paid for the property). In addition, this ramp would use more than 60% of the area, which made impossible the implementation of a project according to customer requirements. Save this picture!So we opted for a cut in the front lower part of the lot a strip of about 16 ft for parking. A retaining wall 13 ft tall holds the remaining earth and access of the residents are provided by an elevator. The house is almost 50ft above, a longitudinal body that opens to a sun terrace oriented north (remember, in the southern hemisphere the sun is north of all). Its eastern end is moved according to the rules creating a belvedere-living room with 3 glass walls that give the residents 180 degree view. Save this picture!The structure of the house is conventional: 16 columns (resting on a pile base) holding the main body: alongside a pair of longitudinal beams support the floor slab, and another pair (in this case inverted) holding the roof slab, free of internal elements that also functions as an integrating element of the proposed spaces. Save this picture!A void separates the private and social areas while also providing the connection to the lower level that houses a service area, a study, maids quarters and a sauna. As part of the functional link between the body of the house and the entertainment area, the terrace serves as an extension of the kitchen, freeing most space and avoiding the need for another enclosure for the barbecue grill and seating area.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow less4 Islands in Maldives / OFIS arhitektiArticlesTU Delft competition, all entries exhibitionArticles Share Brazil CopyHouses•Nova Lima, Brazil 2005 “COPY” ArchDaily Year: Save this picture!+ 14 Share BF House / Humberto Hermeto ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/17438/bf-house-humberto-hermeto Clipboard “COPY” Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/17438/bf-house-humberto-hermeto Clipboard BF House / Humberto HermetoSave this projectSaveBF House / Humberto Hermeto Projects CopyAbout this officeHumberto HermetoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesNova Lima3D ModelingBrazilPublished on April 14, 2009Cite: “BF House / Humberto Hermeto” 14 Apr 2009.

Taking First Step Important in Dealing with Intense Farm Stress SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleRural Communities Struggling to Fight both COVID 19 and Drug AdditionNext articleWet Weather Slows Planting Progress Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – May 26, 2020 Home Indiana Agriculture News Taking First Step Important in Dealing with Intense Farm Stress Facebook Twitter Audio Playerhttps://www.hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Dealing-with-farm-stress.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.COVID-19 has certainly depressed the economy these last two months, but in rural America the state of the farm economy had already taken a toll on farm families. Only time will tell if the toll in terms of farm suicides multiplies.Tonya Short is Extension Educator in Health and Human Sciences for Purdue in Knox County. She says as tough as farmers are, this has been a difficult storm to weather.“You talk to any ag economist and things have been tough for our farm families for several years in a row, and then 2019 was just kind of a blockbuster to cap it all off,” she told HAT recently. “So, we’re seeing a lot of strain on these families, a lot of financial losses because of the crop damage that we saw with the floods last year. What is that doing to the emotional tenacity that we know our farmers to have. If I ask farmers to describe themselves, they’ll say I’m hardheaded and stubborn.”Farmers have personified the phrase “lift yourself up by the bootstraps.” Their mentality is to do it by themselves and just fix whatever problems come along. Short also says there is just a natural societal pressure on men, making it even harder to take steps seeking help.“They might not feel like it’s ok to say I am so stressed beyond the point of being able to function properly, like I need to talk to someone. So, I’m here to challenge folks to think about those things, and ask why don’t I think that my life is valuable enough to reach out for help?”Some of the signs that you might need help?“If I’m in that place where I can’t enjoy my day to day life, or my family or my personal life isn’t what it used to be, or my farm isn’t what it used to be.”Short says a strong, dependable support system is a good place to turn initially. But eventually professional help might be needed and can be very helpful.“On the verge of a crisis or contemplating suicide, you don’t have to wait until it gets to that point,” she explained. “If you’re even just questioning, I feel like I’m stuck, I’m struggling, I need to talk to someone, call. They can point you in the right direction. They can help give you resources. They can help validate your feelings, which is sometimes all we need, for someone to say it’s ok to feel not ok, let’s talk through this.”Short has professional resource information for Knox County, and you’re encouraged to reach out to your county Extension office for local resources.Tonya Short presented a farm stress program in Vincennes at the Farm Profit Preview back in January.
