John Lewis sales fall as shoppers feel pinch

first_imgFriday 28 January 2011 3:22 am Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp alison.lock Tags: NULL whatsapp Department store John Lewis suffered a decline in sales last week, a sign that an increase in VAT sales tax has further weakened already fragile UK consumer spending.The retailer, which also owns supermarket chain Waitrose, said its department store sales fell 2.2 per cent to £50.1m in the week to January 22.Sales in the previous two weeks had increased 4.1 per cent and 38.7 per cent respectively.“It was a quieter week for John Lewis but the comparisons against last year are difficult to read due to periods of heavy snowfall in the first week of January last year and the resulting uplift in trade over the following two weeks,” it said in a statement.It said taking the week ending January 15 and the week ending January 22 together provides a more realistic comparison with last year, and this gave an overall increase of one per cent.The John Lewis data, published as a survey, said British consumer confidence tumbled to its lowest in almost two years in January.“The slowdown in John Lewis sales is particularly notable as the company has been clearly out-performing the retail sector as a whole,” said IHS Global Insight economist Howard Archer.“The John Lewis figures suggest that consumers are becoming increasingly less prepared, or less able, to spend as higher inflation and muted earnings growth squeezes their purchasing power.” More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.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.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller 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.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com John Lewis sales fall as shoppers feel pinch last_img read more

Net income at the owner of Oreo cookies and Philadelphia cheese fell to $540m (£335.5m) from $710m a year ago, in part due to costs linked to Cadbury and to the rising price of corn, sugar and cocoa. Revenues rose 30 per cent to $13.8bn, slightly ahead of consensus estimates, including a 26.2 percentage point gain from acquiring Cadbury in a controversial deal last February. Cadbury fared badly in North America in the fourth quarter, with net revenues dropping 6.1 per cent after lower sales of Trident and Stride chewing gum.Cadbury turnover in Europe was flat, with a decline in southern Europe offsetting what Kraft said were strong sales in the UK. Operating income in Europe fell 27.7 per cent to $159m, as costs linked to integrating Cadbury wiped out half of the division’s profit.In emerging markets, where Kraft hopes to grow through its takeover of Cadbury, the group saw revenues rise 73.5 per cent with 61 percentage points coming through Cadbury.Kraft forecast profit growth of between 11 and 13 per cent excluding integration costs this year, which has been scaled back from predictions of “mid-teens” growth in November’s update.

Prague City Council approves slot machine ban

first_imgRegulation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 15th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Topics: Regulation Prague City Council approves slot machine ban Regions: Europe Czech Republic Prague City Council has voted to approve a decree banning all technical gambling games – including slot machines – in the Czech Republic’s capital city from 2024.The decree, which was last week also given the green light by lawmakers in the city, will prohibit mechanical, electromechanical and electronic games, including slot machines and video lottery terminals.However, operators will still be able to run casino venues that offer live gaming services within the 16 city districts across Prague that permit this form of legal gambling.“In Prague, we decided to follow the path of a blanket ban on slot machines throughout the city, because we set ourselves the goal of reducing the most dangerous forms of gambling, which include playing slot machines,” Prague councillor Hana Kordová Marvanová said.“Statistics show that limiting the availability of gambling has a significant positive impact in the area of negative social phenomena, such as pathological gambling or non-payment.”The new decree is the latest piece of legislation to be introduced with the aim of clamping down on problem gambling in Prague, and indeed the wider Czech market.In 2007, a decree set out the places and times where gambling is permitted in Prague, with 16 of the city’s 57 districts now allowed to offer legal gambling.Since this was introduced, the number of approved gambling locations in the city has plummeted from 1,422 to just 101 official casino establishments. The total number of gaming terminals also fell from 15,934 on 1 January 2010, to 3,995 as of 31 August this year.The Czech Republic’s Gambling Act was also adopted in 2016, setting out a series of new measures, including a ban on the advertising of gambling and new taxes on the industry.Outside of Prague, some cities have already implemented an outright ban on all forms of technical gambling, including in Brno, Ostrava, Břeclav, Kyjov, Klatovy and České Budějovice.In terms of how the new ban will impact revenue in Prague, Kordová Marvanová said prohibition is expected to result in a CZK400m (£13.8m/€15.0m/$17.8m) drop in annual tax income for the city.“We have promised all parts of the city that they do not have to worry about the loss of revenue from taxes on technical games, which they have so far used to finance public needs such as culture, education, sport or social affairs,” Kordová Marvanová said.“Therefore, together with the approval of the decree, the task of compensating the City Council for possible loss of income so that the financing needs of important public activities do not suffer was also approved.”Confirmation of the council’s approval for the new decree comes as the Czech Republic today (15 September) prepares to launch its new gambling exclusion register.The register, details of which will be unveiled later today, forms part of the wider effort in the country to tackle problem gambling and help protect vulnerable people from gambling-related harm. This will allow players to voluntarily self-exclude from all forms of gambling, as well as allow the authorities to place people on the register, such as those on welfare, those who are bankrupt, people who have received treatment for gambling addiction.

Perhaps also because the building features smaller units, which are perfectly suited as a second or third home for people looking to establish a hub in Berlin. Another contributing factor may be the fact that Germany’s capital is regarded as a safe investment haven on the international real estate market – about 70% of the buyers hail from abroad. Also, it’s location near Berlin landmarks such as Checkpoint Charlie and Gendarmenmarkt made the property very attractive to investors.Save this picture!© Werner HuthmacherA third of the available 135 sq.m apartments were purchased by people looking for a permanent residence, such as Thomas Zabel who fell in love with “Charlotte” and moved in himself.Project gallerySee allShow lessStudents of Ball State Construct Parametric Tensegrity Structure for Local Art FairSelected Projectsmatterbetter Launches Competition in Honor of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Charlottenstraße, 10117 Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Apartments “Charlotte” – a great success for the developer as well as marketing. Within weeks, and long before the commencement of building works, all flats within this central Berlin apartment house nearby Checkpoint Charlie were sold. Carefully designed floor plans ensure a high quality of living and generous full height windows offer fascinating views of central Berlin.Save this picture!© Werner HuthmacherBalconies are attached to the building like scales and create a meander like rhythm along the façade. To avoid impairing this well-balanced building front by rough and heavy balustrades, balconies are safeguarded by a delicate stainless steel mesh. The tapered form gives this freestanding corner building a charming and self-confident appearance.Save this picture!© Werner HuthmacherA freestanding building must be able to stand on its own merit, even if it is located in the middle of a city. The following success story illustrates how well this approach worked in the case of a nine-story apartment building in Berlin-Mitte: All 28 apartments were sold within one week of listing. The team behind this accomplishment consists of WI Concept, Michels Architekturbüro, and Berlin Capital Investments. In early 2014, the remaining finished units were handed over – with the exception of one, which they were not willing to part with…Save this picture!Floor Plan“‘The building shouldn’t fall over“, explains architect Andreas Michels. “Fall over visually that is” he adds. “Freestanding corner buildings often appear as though they are tilting forward.” Particularly, when the addition of compact balconies visually weights down the facade. To avoid this, Michels set a clear counterpoint. “The top bay visually lifts the structure upwards and sets a crowning accent.” When glancing upward one perceives a swooping motion ending in a distinct point. This is enhanced by the balconies, which adorn the apartments from the second story up. In reality, this is an illusion. The roof is as flat as the floor slabs. The front of the building consists of exposed concrete corner slabs, which taper back towards the sides of the building. This tapering will allow for an easy connection to future neighbouring buildings.Save this picture!© Werner HuthmacherCurrently, the 347 sq.m site is surrounded by open spaces and expansion areas for future federal buildings. For the time being, “Charlotte” will remain the only apartment building on Charlottenstraße. The design of the building attracts passersby and buyers alike. In December 2011, all 28 units were reserved within one week of being placed on the market, and only four weeks later all contracts were signed. Maik Kettner and Johannes Weil (CEO of WI Concept) refer to it as “a testament of success.”Save this picture!SketchShortly after purchasing the site, Kettner hired an established real estate agency, and took on a lead role in monitoring the progress of the project. “Our clients were waiting for this type of building project,” explains Thomas Zabel, managing director of Berlin Capital Investments, and responsible for the sales of the apartments. “Our early involvement in the project allowed us to gear the design towards the needs of our clients.” 2013 Year:  Year:  Germany Apartments Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/547146/apartments-charlotte-michels-architekturburo Clipboard Architects: Michels Architekturbüro Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Werner Huthmacher+ 15 Sharelast_img read more

Given the tightness of the site, set in a busy and cluttered neighbourhood with a paucity of good vistas, the design opted to rather focus inwards, and create a cloistered ‘oasis of tranquillity’ in the midst of chaotic surroundings. The tight programming methodology employed for the Entry Foyer, Living Room, Staircase, Dining, and Kitchen, expressed itself in a seamless design-flow forming a near contiguous space but with nuanced articulation.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThe ensemble is further ‘tied together’ by the double-height volume above the Living Room and Staircase, enduing a sense of vastness and uplift to this central zone of the building. Custom designed sets of louvres are used on external walls to allow for continuous airflow and cross ventilation through the inside of the house. The Dining Room – with its signature modernist boxy ‘chandeliers’, opens out to an enclosed landscaped courtyard. The openness in planning, the use of big joinery openings and the care taken in spatial planning endows the interior areas with a spacious feel. The stairs were treated with cement plaster finish, with a minimalist design deployed for the handrails using simple in GI tubes painted black. A recessed alcove space was created underneath the stairs to house a writing nook. The centre of the stairs has space for an internal ‘micro garden’.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThe Master Bedroom opens out to a courtyard at the rear and abutting the property’s boundary wall, allowing for free entry and passage of light and breezes. It incorporates safety grills built from rebars, affording a soft visual touch to what is typically an obtrusive safety feature. The en-suite wet areas are also similarly extended out into an enclosed landscaped court. The Living Room located on the first floor offers good views downstairs to the Living Room on the ground floor living room and intervening stairwell. The design has allowed for a home theatre room at the rear side, for subsequent execution in the future. The Bed Room located on the first floor towards the front has a balcony has louvers which ensure privacy while bringing in cooling breezes. The visual effect in these rooms is also a striking feature.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosA cement finish scheme was used for all walls of the house, while the ceiling was painted white. Natural terracotta floor tiles were then used to give a warm yet subtle contrast to the walls and ceiling.

The time is now to free Oscar López!

first_imgMore than 200 people marched across New York City’s Williamsburg Bridge Nov. 23 to demand freedom for Puerto Rican political prisoner, Oscar López Rivera. The 70-year old Rivera has already spent 32 years in federal prison, five years longer than Nelson Mandela’s time in apartheid jails. The Community Coalition for the freedom of Oscar López Rivera organized the march that coincided with a march of 50,000 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Among the speakers at the concluding rally were representatives of the Sundiata Acoli Freedom Campaign, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, newly-elected Councilperson Antonio Reynoso and René Pérez Joglar from Calle 13 who called for the independence of Puerto Rico. — Stephen MilliesThe campaign to free Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera is reaching new heights with the Nov. 23 demonstrations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. The campaign and the demonstrations have had the solidarity of many organizations in many countries throughout the world.There are some crucial issues that unite the Puerto Rican people beyond any material possession. It has been demonstrated several times throughout history. The most recent examples were the struggle against the U.S. Navy in Vieques, which successfully kicked out the hated Pentagon, and the mass outpouring for the funeral of Macheteros Commander Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, viciously assassinated by FBI agents in his home.And in the mid-1970s, a similar campaign to free political prisoners Lolita Lebrón, Rafael Cancel Miranda, Irving Flores and Andrés Figueroa Cordero took place uniting, as the Campaign to Free Oscar is doing today, the people regardless of their political affiliation. It is a demonstration of national pride that says to the imperialist forces: Enough!Even if it is not consciously acknowledged, the meaning of this united front is the quest for sovereignty. How dare the U.S. keep one of our own imprisoned for 32 years, just for loving his country and wanting it free! López Rivera was never convicted of harming anyone.U.S. Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez said it bluntly during a press conference on Nov. 23: “President Barack Obama, how can you go to Egypt and talk about the unity of the people of the Middle East, when here in the USA we have a Puerto Rican in prison for loving his country?” The demand is to President Obama to sign a presidential order to free him.Many international personalities have demanded the freedom of Oscar López, including Desmond Tutu in South Africa and Rigoberta Menchú in Guatemala. In Puerto Rico, the voices that demand his liberation come from all sectors: politicians, artists, workers, students, athletes, businesspeople, religious leaders, LGBTQ activists, physicians, lawyers, intellectuals and others, including ex-governor, Aníbal Acevedo; current governor, Alejandro García Padilla; and several mayors. At the recent Latin Grammy Awards Ceremony, Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin shouted after his performance: “Freedom and Justice for Oscar López!” showing the demand written on the palm of his hand.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
