Next warns over clothes price surge

first_img KCS-content NEXT warned yesterday that its clothes prices would rise by around eight per cent in the new year as worldwide cotton prices soar.The group, which runs over 500 stores in Britain and Ireland as well as the Directory home shopping business, said it expected fourth-quarter total sales growth to be lower than the third quarter’s 2.2 per cent increase but maintained its guidance for the year to the end of January 2011 profit. Next said sales at shops open at least a year fell 3.3 per cent in the third quarter to 30 October. But that was offset by Directory sales growth of 7.9 per cent, which compared with forecasts of a rise of five to eight per cent and a second-quarter increase of 11.8 per cent.Chief executive Simon Wolfson said: “We’re planning very conservatively for 2011 but not [for] a disaster.He warned that due to further rises in the price of cotton, retail price increases were likely to be at the top end of Next’s previously stated five to eight per cent range for the first quarter of 2011. Higher rises could follow in the second quarter.“Because we’ve bought most of the stock for the first-quarter of next year we can be fairly confident that our number at the top end of that range is right,” said Wolfson, who has just returned from a visit to factories in Bangladesh and India.“We still haven’t contracted for the second quarter and if cotton prices continue to go up then that may nudge that [range] up. “The price of cotton seems to be moving very rapidly and somewhat irrationally and it’s very difficult to make a call.”Next said it was sticking with its forecast for underlying retail sales to fall by 1.5-4.5 per cent in its second half, with Directory sales up four to eight per cent.

In this context, accommodative monetary policies in advanced economies so far have been welcome and appropriate,” he said.When asked by reporters on price pressures Lipsky said he was concerned that there were countries where headline inflation had moved above targets.“It (has) to be watched closely to avoid deterioration in core inflation and inflationary expectations,” he said. last_img read more

Bovero House / German Müller

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. Bovero House is located in the municipality of Arroyo Leyes in the province of Santa Fe, 10 km from the provincial capital in a residential area of high landscape value. This commune with the City of Rincon, Colastiné and others were formerly the site of summer homes of Santa Fe families, due to the lack of land in the city and improving transportation networks and services, in recent years this area has grown exponentially with families who establish permanent residence here. Thus, on Provincial Route No. 1 there are a lot of subdivisions and developments that expand the conglomerate known as Greater Santa Fe.Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli Save this picture!SectionDue to the low level of land where the building lots are located and the reclaimed lands from the floodplain of the rivers, the sector’s problems are flooding both by rising rivers as well as runoff rainwater. Thus it is required to place the houses at a safe altitude, so we had to raise the house one meter from the ground level to match the existing defense level.Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli The requirement was to solve a home of approximately 80m2 for a literature teacher, whose children had already left, so no immediate future extensions were required, with a tight budget, through the government mortgage program Procrear on a corner of 16x55m.Save this picture!PlanThe house seeks to claim the linearity of the lot setting an urban facade on the access road and opening the facade into the eucalyptus forest that persists in front of it as undeveloped space. Therefore the program is solved linearly with the sequence living room-kitchen-bathroom-bedroom, introducing a courtyard in the center of the house that incorporates the landscape into the house and organizes the kitchen as a meeting place around a breakfast that is part of the yard.Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli The pre-existence of two large Eucaliptus trees and a lot of typical coastal landscape (Espinillos) set the tone for preserving the largest possible number of trees by inserting the house into the landscape. In turn, we took into account the shadows of the Eucalyptus in the decision to set the house east-west, which allowed us to open the house to the north with the best sunlight conditions.Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli The interior space is delimited by the wall enclosure which in its configuration addresses three issues: the structural support of the house, it is the programmatic element that organizes in its depth the support of the interior spaces that are free-standing, and the symbolic element that covers the literature collection that is part of the routine of the inhabitant.Save this picture!AxonometricThe tight budget led to the decision to try to avoid subsequent finishes after construction was over, and that the construction itself was to be its own material expression. The materials are exposed defining the colors and textures of the construction as result and expression of the implicit technique in the process that does not seek to hide its essence.Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli Project gallerySee allShow lessFMG Monte Alegre / Urbem ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsBIG and Heatherwick’s Futuristic Google HQ Back on the Table After Massive Land Deal…Architecture News Share “COPY” 2014 Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli + 19 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/791082/casa-bovero-german-muller Clipboard “COPY” Photographscenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/791082/casa-bovero-german-muller Clipboard Bovero House / German Müller Year:  CopyHouses•Arroyo Leyes, Argentina ArchDaily Architects: German Müller Year Completion year of this architecture project Bovero House / German MüllerSave this projectSaveBovero House / German Müller CopyAbout this officeGermán MüllerOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesArroyo LeyesArgentinaPublished on July 13, 2016Cite: “Bovero House / German Müller” [Casa Bovero / German Müller] 13 Jul 2016.

Tibetan writer arrested

first_img China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrest of Tibetan writer Kunga Tseyang on 17 March, as well as the re-arrest of Jigmey Gyatso, a monk who helped Dhondup Wangchen made “Leaving fear behind,” a 2008 documentary with interviews with more than 100 Tibetans including monks and elderly people. News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrest of Tibetan writer Kunga Tseyang on 17 March, as well as the re-arrest of Jigmey Gyatso, a monk who helped Dhondup Wangchen made “Leaving fear behind,” a 2008 documentary with interviews with more than 100 Tibetans including monks and elderly people.“Kunga Tseyang’s arrest appears to be directly related to articles he wrote recently and is yet another example of the way the Chinese authorities are cracking down on Tibetan writers and journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the Chinese government to free him without delay.”Aged 20, Tseyang is based in Lungkar monastery in Golok county (in eastern Tibet). He also studied at Labdrang Tashi Kyil monastery and the Institute for Higher Buddhist Studies. He has written many articles about Buddhism and Tibetan art and culture. His most widely read articles include “Who is the real separatist”, “Who stand up us”, “China must apologize to His Holiness the Dalai Lama” and “Tibetans, we must be aware of AIDS.”Tseyang is also an environmental activist and helps the Yutse Environment Department as a photographer. The authorities have not said why he has been arrested or where he is being held.

NYC cuts $1B from police budget amid calls for reform

first_imgJayLazarin / iStockBy Ivan Pereira, ABC NewsNew York City reduced a billion dollars from the NYPD in its city budget for the next year.Police reform advocates, cop supporters and President Trump expressed their discontent with slashing the NYPD’s budget.For the 2021 fiscal year, the $1 billion reduction in the NYPD’s operating budget includes $484 million in cuts to the department; shifting the command of school officers to the Department of Education; eliminating two of the four NYPD training classes this year, which reduced headcount by 1,163 uniform officers; and reducing overtime spending by $352 million, according to the city council.“The council will be moving forward with hearings and legislation in July to ensure a just transition away from law enforcement in schools, homelessness and mental health so that we can make certain that this is not just a budget shift,” the council said in a statement.Mayor Bill de Blasio said during a news conference Wednesday morning there will be additional work on solving the city’s racial injustices through commissions and task forces.“The future is going to involve a lot more reform,” he said.The approved budget also reallocates $500 million from the NYPD to other city departments and programs including expanded Internet broadband and youth recreation centers at the city’s public housing projects, the council said. The cuts will not include layoffs of current officers, according to the budget agreement.The city council voted on the budget in the early morning hours Wednesday morning with a vote of 32-17, with one member being absent due to hospitalization for coronavirus complications.The budget reductions came following weeks of calls from protesters and other leaders, such as U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to defund the police following the death of George Floyd. Police groups, including the Police Benevolent Association, the union representing NYPD members, warned leaders that any reduction in the police budget could jeopardize the city’s safety.PBA President Pat Lynch cited the recent rise of shootings in the city in his criticism of the cuts.“We will say it again: the Mayor and the City Council have surrendered the city to lawlessness. Things won’t improve until New Yorkers hold them responsible,” he said in a statement.President Trump chimed in on Twitter Wednesday morning, chastising Mayor Bill de Blasio for the cuts and for his plan to paint Black Lives Matter on Fifth Avenue, right in front of Trump Tower.“Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!” he tweeted.De Blasio also received flak from city leaders who pushed for more police cuts.Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, who has been a vocal critic of the NYPD for years, said the cuts didn’t go far enough and simply shifted officers to different agencies. He vowed to block the budget using a provision in the city’s charter that states that tax “warrants need be signed only by the public advocate and counter-signed by the city clerk.”“In a moment when New Yorkers, with the entire nation, are demanding a reimagining of public safety, a reckoning with systemic injustices and inequities, the city falls far short with a budget that misses the moment of need,” Williams said in a statement released Wednesday.When asked about Williams’s plan, de Blasio, a former public advocate, said Williams was misinterpreting the law.“The city clerk cannot shut down the city budget, nor can the public advocate,” the mayor said, during a news conference Wednesday morning.Williams’s office didn’t immediately return messages for comment.In the days leading up to the budget vote, hundreds of protesters camped in a park outside City Hall and demanded leaders reduce the police’s budget.“We’ve done different levels of escalation to make sure we’re getting their attention,” Jonathan Lykes, one of the movement’s organizers, told WABC, ABC News’ New York City affiliate. “If they defund the police by $1 billion, then we have won, but that’s only our demand this week.”The crowd grew during the night as the council voted, with some standing on top of cars and chanting for cuts as officers stood by. Earlier in the day, the police said they arrested a man for allegedly spray-painting a statue on a building next to City Hall and arrested another man for allegedly punching an officer.De Blasio admonished those protesters who allegedly vandalized the buildings and fought with officers.“A protestor who says vile nasty things to a police officer is degrading their own movement. A protestor who writes nasty, violent phrases on a public building is degrading their own movement,” he said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
