Fathom Consulting’s Danny Gabay called King’s explanation for missed forecasts “the Lemony Snicket defence – it’s all a series of unfortunate events. The Bank didn’t come clean about why their forecasts have been so badly wrong”.And Henderson’s Simon Ward cast doubt on the Bank’s assumption that spare capacity will weigh down on inflation next year: “Again, they wheeled out this argument about spare capacity without taking into account the fact that it has not worked,” he told City A.M..The Bank’s argument about spare capacity defies some of its own analysis. Explaining why its projections have been wrong, yesterday’s report states: “The recent recession may have had a more immediate adverse impact on effective supply than anticipated, so that a smaller margin of spare capacity has emerged.” KCS-content whatsapplast_img read more

LAWYER OF THE YEAR | The Shortlist

first_img Show Comments ▼ OUR list of lawyers reflects the breadth of legal work in the City, from the head of a firm that has recently merged, to one who advised the government on the banking bailout, the chief of the financial regulator and a pace-setting female head of a flourishing boutique firm. Hard to compare? Yes, but they show that the law is flourishing. Don’t miss the City event of the year – get online now and book your table for the City A.M. Awards on Thursday 28 October 2010 at Grange St Paul’s Hotel, London EC4. www.CityAMAwards.com. NILUFER VON BISMARCK, SLAUGHTER & MAYLong a star of the City’s legal scene, she was one of the lawyers called in to advise the government on the nationalisations of RBS and Lloyds. This year she stayed in the limelight by advising the Pru on its rights issue, and advised Standard Chartered on both its Indian listing and its $500m investment in Agricultural Bank of China. She is currently advising Tomkins on the £3bn bid by Onex and CPP. A class act.EDWARD BRAHAM, FRESHFIELDBRUCKHAUS DERINGERThe biggest coup of the year in the City’s legal circles was Freshfields pinching BP from Linklaters. As head of the worldwide corporate practice group, Braham was one of the men behind the audacious victory. He has long been a leading light ­– he acted for CVC on its acquisition of majority ownership of Formula One, and Anheuser Busch’s bid for Harbin Brewery in China – but it’s for pulling off the BP deal that he makes our shortlist. MARGARET COLE, FSAA partner at White & Case, Cole joined the FSA in 2005 as Director of Enforcement. She has been behind its new, tougher stance of providing “credible deterrence” over the past year. Her influence is being felt. The regulator has imposed £60m in enforcement fines in the financial year so far, tightened its anti money-laundering regime and cracked down on mortgage fraud. As a nominee says: “She has had a very good year”.DAVID HARRIS, HOGAN LOVELLSThere was no greater sign that London’s law firms are still global players than the merger of City firm Lovells with Washington-based Hogan & Hartson earlier this year, a deal masterminded by managing partner David Harris. The newly formed firm looks truly modern, adding Lovells’ global reach – it is big in Asia – with Hogan’s American focus. At a time when many City law firms are still feeling the pinch, and shedding staff or worse, Harris showed that he had the sheer chutzpah to take his firm to the next level. CLARE MAURICE, MAURICE TURNOR GARDNERShe became the first woman partner at Allen & Overy in the mid-80s, and last year she spun off the private client arm into boutique firm Maurice Turnor Gardner – “a brave move in the middle of a recession”, says a nominee, especially after 33 years at A&O. It has been a great success, though. Despite the unpromising timing, in its first year the firm won over 100 new clients, an increase of a third. Those who have worked with her say clients respect her judgment as well as her legal skills and call her “inspiring”.

Is the Barclays share price now too cheap to ignore?

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Kevin Godbold | Monday, 3rd August, 2020 | More on: BARC Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Last week’s half-year results report from Barclays (LSE: BARC) revealed some poor numbers. And, looking ahead, the directors aren’t expecting much improvement during the second half of the year. In fairness, the market appears to be up with events because the Barclays share price has already plunged by about 45% this year.Will an earnings rebound boost the Barclays share price?However, City analysts following the firm expect full-year earnings to come in more than 80% down on 2019’s figures. The directors expect the uncertain economic outlook and the low interest rate environment to combine to make trading in the second half “challenging”.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In fairness, banks are ‘supposed’ to see the collapse of their earnings, dividends, and share prices when the economy goes into recession. If you invest in out-and-out cyclical shares, you’re ‘signing up’ for the volatility that comes with the stocks. And banks are perhaps the most cyclical outfits that exist.Banks facilitate the finances of other businesses and individuals. Therefore, if things are tough for the banks’ customers, things are tough for the banks. Right now, Barclays is seeing higher levels of bad debts, for example.I’ve long ago abandoned any notion of trying to invest in Barclays or any other bank for the long term. What’s the point? The stocks will lead the market into and out of every recession and downturn. Profits will swing up and down and, over the long haul, my investment could end up going nowhere. That’s essentially what has happened since the last crash around 11 years ago with Barclays. Why shouldn’t it happen after this one?It’s cheap, but is it risky?But the stock does look cheap. With the share price near 103p, the net tangible asset value is running close to 0.3. And City analysts have pencilled in a triple-digit percentage rebound in earnings for 2021. It’s easy to make a case for Barclays being too cheap to ignore.If I were to invest in the share now it would only be a relatively short-term trade aiming to catch the next up-leg. Back in 2009, for example, Barclay’s shot up by about 260% from its crash lows over a period of just seven months. Yet after that dramatic rise, the share has never been as high again since, which adds more weight against the idea of choosing the stock for a long ‘hold’.I know there have been a few dividends along the way for shareholders, but capital losses can wipe out years’ worth of income gains when a stock crashes. And although the valuation indicators show the share looks cheap now, it is still risky. Barclays is so beholden to the outcomes in the real economy that it could easily plunge 50% again from where it is now before it starts to recover.On balance, I’d rather invest in one of the many other decent companies listed on the stock market. So Barclays isn’t too cheap for me to ignore. See all posts by Kevin Godbold Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Barclays.

Hus 1 is an inspiring new house designed and built by Torsten Ottesjö. With double curved surfaces, compact and efficient planning it is a house on the human scale that blends effortlessly into the surrounding nature.Save this picture!PlanSituated in the unique cultural landscape of the Scandinavian West Coast, Hus 1 reflects and communicates with its surroundings. The natural materials used in the construction have made it a friendly place for both humans and nature for its whole life cycle.Save this picture!© David RelanThe building was constructed on site. The idea was a house as personification – a structure designed to fit the needs of a two specific people. The majority of the furnishing is built into the house. The dwelling features convex walls which seam together with the floor creating both a sense of airiness and a naturally curved seating space along the sides of the interior. The structure is free-standing, so it can be moved anywhere; though the feeling is that it has actually sprouted out of the ground it rests on.Save this picture!© David RelanThe 25 sqm house aims to provide a living space beyond understanding. It is supposed to fit, to enable – not to distract or cause attention. Torsten’s attention to the residents, the material, and the process itself means that that customization is implicit in the structure. The goal was to create a living space that blends effortlessly into its surroundings.Save this picture!© David RelanSave this picture!© David RelanProject gallerySee allShow lessRichard Meier Retrospective Exhibition in Mexico CityArticles’CoExistence’ Badel Block Proposal / PlaCArticles Share CopyAbout this officeTorsten OttesjöOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBjällansåsDabas3D ModelingHousesWoodSwedenPublished on June 14, 2012Cite: “Hus-1 / Torsten Ottesjö” 14 Jun 2012.

The decision of whether to demolish and reconstruct or to revitalize an old house, has always been a crucial one. However this choice is not exclusively within the hands of an architect. Client’s interest, cost-efficiency, context limitations and urban regulations are the structural and social factors which led the design team to the revitalizing approach the local context, through the design of an architectural object right in the heart of Mashhad.Save this picture!© Mohammad Saeed MaalekiSave this picture!Section A-ASave this picture!© Mohammad Saeed MaalekiA context in which the historical identity still has managed to survive. Such context led the design team to propose an alternative in which the collective memory of the old neighborhoods’ population, played a decisive role. So this project had to empower the neighborhood’s already devastated public space due to immethodical commercial development in the residential areas. In order to satisfy the aforementioned design approach, the team started with letting the public domain diffuse through the private and thus form a type of micro-plaza including both the sidewalk and the building’s front yard. In order to loosen the graphic boundaries even more, a certain retractable metal fencing was designed and added to the project.Save this picture!© Mohammad Saeed MaalekiThe client demanded the design of a guest suit on the rooftop with an exclusive and independent access. This led to form the concept of an intentionally oversized public stairway leading to the previously abandoned rooftop of the building. The stairway became an all-around design concept that managed to link the different functions together. This in turn would provide a full upward looking viewpoint to the building which turned the not so eye-catching location of the existing building into a stop-and-spot point of view.Save this picture!© Mohammad Saeed MaalekiThe second phase of the design was focused on choosing the materials and deciding on the details. The extensive use of red bricks which used to be the most prevalent and conventional material among Mashhad houses. Choosing steel sheets as the second material was also a context-based decision. The traditional cladding of all houses in Mashhad used to be galvanized iron sheets; a traditional feature that still prevails. The use of scrap metal parts in designing the details of the railings, chandeliers and the curtain fencing was also an attempt to use industrial parts as a metaphor to revitalization.Save this picture!© Mohammad Saeed MaalekiProject gallerySee allShow lessWhen Urbanization Comes to Ground: CAZA + SUBRAArchitecture BooksLand Art Generator Initiative 2019 – Masdar CityIdeas Share 2017 Architects: WHY Architects Group Area Area of this architecture project Bouzarjomehr Office and Showroom / WHY Architects GroupSave this projectSaveBouzarjomehr Office and Showroom / WHY Architects Group Iran “COPY” Bouzarjomehr Office and Showroom / WHY Architects Group ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910387/bouzarjomehr-office-and-showroom-why-architecture Clipboard “COPY” Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910387/bouzarjomehr-office-and-showroom-why-architecture Clipboard Area:  391 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs CopyHouses, Renovation•Mashhad, Iran CopyAbout this officeWHY Architects GroupOfficeFollowProductsSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationMashhadIranPublished on January 30, 2019Cite: “Bouzarjomehr Office and Showroom / WHY Architects Group” 30 Jan 2019.

With Daffodil Day fast approaching on March 24 the Irish Cancer Society is calling on companies across Galway to get ‘Back to the Shop Floor’ for Daffodil Day.Following a great response from Galway last year with companies like Hewlett Packard partaking in the event, representatives from the Irish Cancer Society say they are most disappointed with the response, but are hopeful Galway will put forward participants to help raise additional funds for Daffodil Day.We do hope that managers in Galway’s companies will roll up their sleeves and contribute in some way to reaching our target for Daffodil Day this year set at ‚€3 million, said Deirdre Keane of the Irish Cancer Society. Advertisement Howard Lake | 15 March 2006 | Newscenter_img Over 80 companies participated from countrywide last year and the challenge this year is to recruit at least 150 companies, which to date we are nowhere near achieving, she added. We remain hopeful that by the end of this week we receive some return on the application packs sent out nationwide, as Galway have always held some involvement in Daffodil Day fundraising.Now in its fourth year, the fundraising event invites senior managers to spend some portion of Daffodil Day performing a task that would not normally be part of their everyday routine. Over the past four years, Back to the Shop Floor has generated an additional ‚€650,000 for the overall Daffodil Day campaign, and all monies have gone towards the funding of free nursing care services for people with cancer all over Ireland.

Two bloggers banned from criticising politician accused of embezzlement

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more November 25, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two bloggers banned from criticising politician accused of embezzlement to go further Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil News Two bloggers in the southwestern state of Mato Grosso, economist Adriana Vandoni and lawyer Enock Cavalcanti, were ordered by judge Pedro Sakamoto on 10 November to withdraw all comments from their blogs (www.prosaepolitica.com.br and paginadoenock.com.br) that were “offensive” to José Riva, the president of the Mato Grosso legislative assembly.The judge also told them they could be fined up to 1,000 reais (390 euros) a day if they posted any new criticism of Riva.Riva is nonetheless a politician who is worthy of comment. The head of a major financial empire and regarded as one of the most powerful people in the state, he is currently the target of more than 100 lawsuits for alleged embezzlement and 17 other actions for alleged criminal association.“This is a serious violation of free expression as the two bloggers just voiced their opinions, which is not a crime,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Preventive censorship violates the principles of the 1988 democratic constitution. We urge the federal authorities to take a position on this matter and to put a stop to such unacceptable forms of harassment by politicians, even those that support the government.”This kind of censorship above all affects cities in the interior of the country, where there are fewer and less powerful newspapers and where the Internet is one of the few public arenas where people can express their views freely, or at least try to. Court censorship is an effective method of financial pressure, as it is costly for defendants to hire a lawyer in order to appeal. Time passes and the censorship remains.This case recalls the preventive censorship to which the O Estado de São Paulo daily has been subject since 31 July, when it was forbidden to publish any reports about alleged corruption cases involving Fernando Sarney, a businessman who is the son of former President José Sarney, the current senate speaker.In a press release on 5 October, Reporters Without Borders condemned the case’s transfer to a court in Maranhão state, whose governor is Fernando Sarney’s sister. This preventive censorship measure has been in force for 118 days without anyone in the government making any comment about it.

World renowned Irish traditional musicians Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill will provide the musical accompaniment for a demonstration of Irish Dancing with Parkinson’s disease patients from Italy and Ireland.Event spokesperson Cllr Pat Hayes explained that during one of his regular visits to Clare to play with his traditional Irish music band, Dr Volpe watched as a man he recognised as suffering from Parkinson’s disease walked into the room.“He looked on in astonishment as the man who earlier had struggled to walk, took part in the festivities and set danced without any difficulty. He went on to conduct a study that found Irish dancing does indeed have positive effects for those suffering from Parkinson’s disease.“There will be worldwide interest in this event given the links Dr Volpe has with the Physiotherapy Departments of two major universities in Ireland and Australia. We are delighted to be hosting this unique event and have no doubt that it will focus in on the value of Irish music and dance,” said Cllr Hayes.For more information www.feaklefestival.ie.
