Shoppers hit by soaring petrol price

first_img Share Shoppers hit by soaring petrol price Thursday 24 February 2011 9:09 pm Show Comments ▼ RETAIL sales growth slowed substantially this month, with consumers increasingly squeezed by surging petrol prices, weak wage growth and spiralling price inflation.Elevated oil prices, driven up in recent weeks by the crisis in the Middle East and surging Chinese demand, are set to drive petrol close to £1.40 a litre, some observers said.The rise imposes more pressures on the UK, where consumer price inflation is already double the Bank of England’s two per cent target, and expected to approach five per cent in the coming months. It is already higher than that on other measures.Brent crude briefly hit $119 (£74) a barrel yesterday, before falling back after the Saudis pledged to increase supplies. Some analysts argue every extra $10 a barrel knocks 0.25 per cent off global GDP. Oil at $120 a barrel may add 0.48 per cent to retail price index inflation in the UK, Fathom Consulting said.Rising petrol prices could be compounded by a 5p hike in petrol duty, due in April. Fuel duty is currently 58.94p a litre. Petrol stations are reporting that more consumers are limiting their purchases to a set sum of money, rather than filling their tanks, a sign of distress.More than three out of four – 77 per cent – of retailers are reporting rising prices, according to a survey by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) yesterday. With only four per cent reporting lower prices, the survey’s inflation index soared upwards by 28 per cent – its most inflationary score in nearly two decades.A balance of only six per cent of surveyed retailers reported a rise in sales during the opening two weeks of this month — 36 per cent saying sales have increased, and 30 per cent saying sales have fallen — according to the CBI.“With rising food, oil and other commodity prices and weak wage inflation, the outlook for UK household income growth looks poor,” said Chris Watling of Longview Economics. “Such a sustained decline in real incomes has not been experienced in the UK since the 1970s,” he added. “The fruits of western money creation are now appearing in terms of consumer price inflation,” Watling said.A 10 per cent rise in petrol prices would cost US consumers $40bn a year, “a reduction in real incomes of around 0.4 per cent,” Capital Economics said yesterday. “Retail sales are likely to be more challenging over the coming months,” said CBI economist Lai Wah Co. “Prices are set to rise considerably as the VAT increase and the soaring cost of raw materials are passed on to shoppers.” KCS-content whatsapp More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

London Irish comeback upsets Racing Metro in Colombes

first_imgMonday Dec 12, 2011 London Irish comeback upsets Racing Metro in Colombes London Irish secured an impressive bonus point win away from home, their first of the competition, as they beat Racing Metro 34-14 in Pool 2 of the Heineken Cup on the weekend. They lost to Edinburgh and Cardiff Blues in the first two rounds. The visitors scored some nice tries despite trailing early on, namely through Jonathan Spratt, Joe Ansbro, and Adam Thomstone, with the latter scoring a brace.Fijian winger Sereli Bobo scored another quality try for Racing, and with a 14-10 lead for the home side they looked to be well positioned at the break. That was until Irish had a great spell in the second half where they scored twice to shoot into a 27-14 lead.A Thomstone interception in the final ten minutes sealed the result as Racing chased the game.“It was always going to be very tough coming here. Everyone talks about winning your home games in the Heineken Cup but the key to surviving is to win on the road,” said boss Toby Booth.“To go up against a French institution like Racing – with the budget, resources and quality of players they have – and to win is a great result for us. Consistency is absolutely key for us now. This win will mean nothing if we don’t back it up it next week.”London Irish host Racing Metro for the return leg this coming weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

HLM HOUSE / Boa Arquitetura

The HLM House emerges from a client’s request to build a retreat on a natural area in the outskirts of the city of Santa Maria, in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The idea was to provide a place where one coul find himself in deep contact with the landscape, near enough from the city so working was still possible. From the begining, the challenge found was how to build something that could rise in the landscape as if it had always belonged to the place.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe image of a curved wall, sliding through the original topography, came as the reference point, creating a surrounding thick layer of white concrete, as elemental as possible. From there, internal spaces take shape, in two main rooms divided by a central core of technical instalations and service areas. The first room is the dormitory, where the open space receives a tube and is just interrupted by a minor curved wall that shapes the bathroom aside. The second room is the living one, where one can seat around the fire, meet friends around the table, cook a nice tradicional “parrilla” or just seat around and enjoy the beauty of the view from the valley below. Wide open windows allow the landscape to be a constant presence in everyday life, and all window can be opened to connect interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe dormitory and the living room are linked through a linear porch, projected towards the hill. The structure of the house, as weel as walls, is all made in white concrete poured on the site. The choice was made respecting the site, who demanded a very strong and radical materiality. The interior received natural wood floor and ceiling. A helicoidal stair leads to the green roof. this one has a constant layer of 18cm of water below it. This provides the house a very eficient and sustainable climate system, avoiding the excessive insulation on summer and keeping the heat on winter. Up there one can reach a quiet place to find yourself alone and just enjoy the beautiful view at east, made magical by everyday sunrise.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Essentials: ModernismArticlesNCARB’s 2015 Report Projects Positive Future for the Architecture ProfessionArchitecture News Share ArchDaily “COPY” Projects 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/770233/hlm-house-boa-arquitetura Clipboard Photographs Save this picture!© Marcelo Donadussi+ 25 Sharecenter_img HLM HOUSE / Boa Arquitetura ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/770233/hlm-house-boa-arquitetura Clipboard Area:  196 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Brazil CopyHouses•Brazil HLM HOUSE / Boa ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveHLM HOUSE / Boa Arquitetura Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBoa ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrazilPublished on July 15, 2015Cite: “HLM HOUSE / Boa Arquitetura” 15 Jul 2015.

This is 75% more than last year, while the average donation so far has been £142. This year’s campaign has seen celebrities including Emilia Fox, Gordon Ramsey, Stephen Fry and Will Greenwood take to social media to encourage the public to donate. The Christmas Challenge has been endorsed by over 20 celebrities, including Tom Kerridge, Sir Michael Palin and Dame Darcey Bussell, who feature in the campaign’s video.center_img [youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTO-NsK__Gc&feature=youtu.be[/youtube]  191 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Before the campaign launched the Big Give conducted a nationwide survey, which over 1,000 UK charities took part in. The findings revealed:Almost two thirds (63%) of charities reported an average income decrease of 43% this year.Two in five (40%) charities expecting an increase in demand for their services over the Christmas period, so it was vital that donations were made in order to meet this demand.Martha Wood, Fundraising & Marketing Officer, The Bendrigg Trust, which has already beaten its target commented: “The Big Give Christmas Challenge really did start off with a bang for Bendrigg Trust this year. Within just 3 and a half hours we had already smashed our £10,000 target – it was just unbelievable. “The generosity of donors this year has blown our minds. After such a turbulent year we were worried that people may not be able to afford to donate as much, but the way the challenge has gone so far, shows that people who are able to help, are giving more than ever before.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

How women have to fight to be journalists in India

first_img After two events in the past month that shed light on the scale of sexist and misogynistic behaviour towards women journalists in India, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has taken a closer look at the many kinds of prejudice and hostility to which they are constantly exposed. News RSF_en India’s women journalists must combat hate speech and intimidation attempts (photo: Sajjad Hussain / AFP). Organisation News One of the past month’s events was a terrifying online harassment campaign targeting the investigative journalist Rana Ayyub, which included calls for her to be gang-raped and the posting of porn videos with her head digitally superimposed over the heads of the actresses.The other was a less scary but still revealing incident during a press conference by the governor of the southeastern state of Tamil Nadu. When a woman reporter, Lakshmi Subramanian, asked him a question about the Tamil Nadu’s university, his sole response was to pat her cheek.The way the governor did this was so condescending that it sparked a major row on social networks and elicited this extraordinary comment from S.V. Shekher, the ruling Hindu nationalist BJP’s leader in Tamil Nadu: “Illiterate scoundrels are now in media, she [Subramanian] is not an exception to that. No one can become a reporter or news anchor without sleeping with some big shots.”“Such an absolutely intolerable comment is typical of the battle that women journalists must constantly wage in India in order to practice their profession,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“They have fought with determination for decades to be accepted in newsrooms and then as reporters in the field, where they still often encounter behaviour that can at best be described as condescending paternalism and sometimes constitutes the most appalling misogynistic violence. All sectors of Indian society – including the public sector, employers and digital platforms – must take concrete measures to change this state of affairs and to allow women journalist to work with complete dignity.”PrejudiceThe prejudice to which women journalists are exposed begins before they even set foot in a newsroom.“Journalism as a career choice is often seen as a risky venture,” said Rituparna Chatterjee, who helped found HuffPost India and now focuses on women’s rights and gender issues. “Parents fear that women who take up journalism will not be attractive in the ‘marriage market’ since typically such women are seen as ‘bold’ and opinionated. Women often leave the field after marriage, facing pressure from in-laws and husbands.”Indian society’s opinion of women who espouse journalism instead of husbands can reveal itself in the most unexpected details. When Reader’s Digest India deputy editor Abha Srivastava wanted to rent an apartment in New Delhi, the landlady did not request evidence of how much she earned, as one would have expected. “She asked to speak with my father to get a list of ‘approved males who could come to visit me.’ This, when I was close to 40. The reason for such a demand? The fact that I was single and a journalist.”This is a terrible combination for Indian women, it seems.PioneersWomen journalists obviously still encounter this kind of prejudice in the workplace even if attitudes are evolving. Prior to the 1960s, newsrooms were 100% male and the pioneers had to demonstrate a great deal of perseverance.“They were gawked at and there was a lot of speculation as to how long they would survive in the taxing profession,” said Usha Rai, one of India’s first women journalists, in a survey by the Press Institute of India.They had to fight in order not to be restricted to covering so-called “feminine” stories such as flower arrangement contests or sari shows. “I spent a long time trying to shrug off my gender,” said Barkha Dutt, a well-known journalist who worked for New Delhi TV for years and now often writes for the Washington Post.“But after 22 years, here’s what I learned,” she told RSF. “I had to work twice as hard to get to the same place as my male colleagues. I had to fight for certain kinds of assignments, in particular, to cover wars and conflicts.”Sexual assaultsOffice relations sometimes get much more sordid. In 2013, a young woman journalist with the investigative magazine Tehelka described in detail how she was assaulted in a Goa hotel by her editor Tarun Tejpal. The magazine’s managing editor, Shoma Chaudhury, reacted by sending an email to her employees referring to an “untoward incident” that would be dealt with internally. The victim’s colleagues had to fight to get the case made public.There have also been cases of sexual harassment in the field. After RSF reported a wave of police violence against journalists in March, a woman journalist reported that she had been groped by a police officer. And much more serious cases have been reported, such as that of the young photojournalist who was gang-raped in a Mumbai business district in 2013.As elsewhere, the line separating verbal violence from physical violence is always very tenuous. This was seen in newspaper editor Gauri Lankesh’s murder outside her home in Bangalore last September. Like many women journalists in India, she had been the target of repeated online harassment.“Presstitutes”And like many other women journalists in India, she had been called a “presstitute,” an insult that is much used by the trolls associated with the right-wing Hindu nationalist movement from which Prime Minister Narendra Modi comes. Some politicians, including Minister of State for External Affairs V. K. Singh, also use this insult.Swati Chaturvedi, an investigative reporter who has been the victim of online harassment, described in a book entitled “I am a troll” how Prime Minister Modi’s trolls use death threats and gang-rape calls to harass women journalists whose coverage of Modi or his party annoys them.After Asianet News TV anchor Sindhu Suryakumar hosted a TV debate in 2016 in which references were made to a Hindu female deity, her phone number was posted on a WhatsApp group and she received more than 2,000 insulting phone calls and messages within the space of a few hours.Fighting backThe trolls go so far as to publish the addresses of women journalists, making them fear for their lives. This is what happened to Rana Ayyub last month, prompting RSF to refer the case to the United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.“I am used to hate and to the state creating trouble for me,” said Ayyub, who is well known for her investigative reporting in the book she wrote about Narendra Modi, which her friend, Gauri Lankesh, translated into the Kannada language before being murdered. “But this, what they have done to me now is a new low,” she told RSF. “And I have promised myself that I will take each one of them to court, I will fight back.”India has fallen two places in RSF’s newly released 2018 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 138th out of 180 countries.
