Foyles plans new flagship branch in Charing Cross

first_imgSunday 27 February 2011 10:58 pm KCS-content FOYLES plans to move its flagship Charing Cross bookshop after its property holding company bought a nearby building. Noved Investment Holdings has snapped up 107-109 Charing Cross Road, currently home to the Central St Martins School of Art, and the bookseller hopes to refurbish and move within two years. Architects at Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands have designed the three-storey shop, while US developer Hines is currently working up plans for residential space above the store. Planning applications are due to be submitted to Westminster council shortly, with the first building work pencilled in for the end of the year. The current Foyles shop, down the road at 113-119 Charing Cross Road, will be available for redevelopment following the move. Central St Martins will move to a new campus near Kings Cross in August. whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com Share Foyles plans new flagship branch in Charing Cross last_img read more

Why I’d cruise through 2020 with this FTSE 100 dividend stock

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Enter Your Email Address Carnival (LSE: CCL), the British-American cruise operator, is well known for the extensive fleet that has made it the largest leisure travel company in the world.  However, it is often overlooked as one of the highest-paying dividend stocks of the FTSE 100 right now.In fact, for the last five years, the company has been growing its dividend yield at a surprisingly fast rate. Add to that the fact that it pays out roughly 21% of its cash flow in dividends. At its current dividend yield of around 4.4% at the time of writing, I believe Carnival should be on the watch list of every serious income investor for the year.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…Carnival has challenges ahead, but not foreverGenerally, the cruise business is passing through challenging times. Demand has been low, regulations in some quarters have become tight, and to rub salt in the wound, just 3.5% of both American and European consumers have ever taken a cruise in their lifetimes.However, the industry can easily reverse this trend. All it needs to do is to concentrate on ageing citizens who can easily shore up demand for cruise services. Fortunately enough, it is already doing that. And Carnival, with over 100 ships – the largest fleet of its peers – is best positioned to benefit the most.Moreover, with the company’s particular efforts to grow its capacity and expand its reach, it will not be long until we start seeing substantial improvement in the demand for its services, especially in Europe and Asia. Then it is expected to surpass its last $5 billion in sales for the coming years.Carnival isn’t perfect, but nothing isAs appealing as it is as an income stock, Carnival is not perfect, but what is? Demand for the cruise service has been low, with a very small percentage of American and European consumers seeming to be interested in it.The major saving grace for Carnival in the long term is the increasing number of ageing people who have been the largest consumers of its service. So if the company’s concerted efforts in expanding its share of the overseas cruise vacations market pays off, its balance sheet – which is still the strongest in the industry – will be further improved.Hence, Carnival is a buy, in my opinion. If you consider its modest 10× price-to-earnings ratio, its reasonable 4.4% dividend yield and a healthy balance sheet that seems impossible to ever show any sign of weakness, concerns about the current short-term low demand for its services will fall apart.

Phil Waugh ends career with a loss

first_imgAUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – JUNE 24: Phil Waugh of the Waratahs talks to his team during the final Super Rugby qualifier match between the Blues and the Waratahs at Eden Park on June 24, 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand. (Photo by Hannah Johnston/Getty Images) Phil Waugh looks on in disappointmentThe HSBC Waratahs gallant 2011 campaign has come to a close after going down to the Blues 26-13 in their Super Rugby Qualifier at Eden Park, Auckland.In a season where a record 38 players pulled on the state colours, the HSBC Waratahs put up a brave fight to qualify for the playoffs, but were ultimately disappointed not to progress past the first week of the Finals Series.It was a sad farewell for the state’s most capped player, captain Phil Waugh, who finishes his career with a record 136 appearances for New South Wales.While there was little rain throughout the night, a wet week in Auckland meant the game was played in slippery conditions and territory was king. After both sides had their chances in the opening exchanges, Tom Carter carried defenders over the line to score his sixth try of the season – equal highest for the Waratahs with Drew Mitchell – for an early lead.However the Blues hit back soon after through Lachie Munro, with Luke McAlister’s conversion edging the home side ahead after 24 minutes. At the 30 minute mark Kurtley Beale kicked a conversion to push the Waratahs in front by a point, however two three-pointers from Munro in the following five minutes gave the hosts a 13-8 lead at the break.The Waratahs’ injury curse continued after half-time with Kane Douglas and Sitaleki Timani both forced off the field with leg injuries, and Munro’s third penalty took the margin out further. In the 63rd minute some good lead up work led to Ali Williams’ try, with Munro’s conversion taking the lead to 23-8. Lachie Turner’s try in the 74th minute reduced the gap to ten points and an outside chance of victory, however a long range penalty to McAlister two minutes from time sealed the result.Blues 26 (Lachie Munro, Ali Williams tries; Lachie Munro 3 pens, con, Luke McAlister con, pen)Waratahs 13 (Tom Carter, Lachie Turner tries; Kurtley Beale pen) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS HT: Blues 13-8.

The sanctuary is lined with soaring windows as though nature itself is invited to join the services while a sprawling labyrinth seemingly emerges organically from a hillside to engage seekers on their spiritual quests.“You get a sense of creation when you’re here,” said St. Mark’s rector, the Rev. Benjamin H. Nelson III.“Here” is on the eastern edge of the rolling Texas Hill Country, along an elongated geological escarpment known as the Balcones Fault and atop the environmentally sensitive Edward’s Aquifer recharge zone. And “here,” at St. Mark’s, its Environmental Stewardship Committee is engaged to raise congregational and community awareness, appreciation and preservation of the natural treasure that encompasses their surroundings.“That’s part of the reason why this group is so active. We’re reminded of nature every Sunday,” Nelson said. “There are gardens all around us, wildlife, birds, flora and fauna all over the place. It’s a cool worship space for us.”The committee, now with about a dozen members, formed a decade ago, primarily to explore the interweaving of the natural environment with the mission of the Episcopal Church. One of the original members, Larry Hanson, continues to be an active member.Initially, its work focused on recycling but that emphasis has mushroomed into a myriad of activities, ranging from crafting homemade Christmas gifts to encourage reusing and recycling, to the regularly scheduled sale of environmentally friendly coffee. The group also developed an Advent meditation booklet consisting of meditations and prayers based on daily scripture readings that connect nature to God and creation written by members of the committee“The meditations are pretty successful,” Nelson said. “We print up a couple of hundred and they all disappear. It gives the committee a chance to talk about the environment and brings in people who may not normally come in contact with this.”And proceeds from the periodic sale of coffee – fair traded, locally roasted, organically and shade grown – are split between the Episcopal Relief & Development fund and local environmental causes.Organized in 1874, St. Mark’s moved to its 25-acre campus in 2010 and into a sanctuary that, as Nelson describes, is “wide open to creation.” A portion of the credit for the design and placement of the building goes to the efforts of Sarah Carlisle, Florence Dodington and Susan Hanson, master naturalists and gardeners on the committee, and an array of other volunteers who researched and provided recommendations for sustainable construction, design, landscaping and even its physical placement and alignment to the sun.St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is lined with soaring windows that envelop the sanctuary in nature.Before moving into the new church, the committee also organized a mulching and watering campaign to preserve the sprawling liveoak trees when Texas was struck by a severe drought, said Ann Walsh, co-chair of the committee. Many members of the congregation joined in with the committee to tackle this challenge.“In the two years I’ve been here they’ve not only incorporated projects that are really cool and innovative but they also focus on formation of people,” with the idea that “this creation we live in is a gift from God and it is up to us to partner with God to take care of it,” Nelson said.“Not just that you should recycle but you should recycle because it is part of our care for God’s creation and this wonderful gift we are entrusted with as partners in ministry,” he said. “I think it’s a real gentle way to include that in the life of the parish.”The committee keeps the idea of environmental stewardship in front of the congregation through various publicity activities. For example, environmental stewardship is mentioned in nearly every church newsletter, and the group even created a website dedicated to environmental stewardship at the church, http://stmarksenvironmentalstewardship.weebly.com.“We feel like we keep having activities to keep people thinking about it,’ said co-chair Margo Case. “We try to educate people about why we’re sponsoring a particular event. We’re very careful not to politicize any of this because it’s not a political cause. It’s a taking care of creation cause.”Nelson has encouraged their efforts by instituting periodic Rogation services. The services are designed to “make us aware of God in creation and to get them connected to an old tradition of the church. It’s so Episcopalian and Anglican.”For Nelson, environmental stewardship “kind of gets back to our roots. We’ve always been a people who were deeply connected to creation. All of our great stories in scripture – the emergence of our self through this idea that we were created in the image and likeness of God and God created this world and it was very good. That’s who we are, so scripturally it’s rekindling and retelling that story in a way that connects to wherever we are in our life.”Nelson was selected as rector of St. Mark’s in 2012. By coincidence, his doctoral thesis happened to concern the environment – “the spiritually of water, combined with some Hawaiian traditional values and the language of the Prayer Book and how encounters with creation can enhance, inform and shape our life in Christ.”“I think that when the rancher, the tree hugger, the oilman, the developer, when they sit down and talk about their spiritual values, you can sometimes get through the differences to a place where they can start talking about caring for the earth,” he said. “Their goals may not be the same but the values can be, and that can be a language of commonality, especially if they are faithful people.”To encourage other churches to undertake environmental stewardship, the committee hosted the Diocese Ecological Stewardship booth at the 2014 Diocesan Council in San Marcos. “We were trying to connect with people at other churches,” Walsh said. “To see if we could get some people who were interested and maybe we could help mentor other churches in starting up their own committees.”When she talked to visitors at their booth, Walsh asked if they had people who worked on the grounds of their church. If they did, “I said you have environmental stewardship but you haven’t thought of calling it that. We’re trying to get people to see themselves as environmental stewards.”“Anytime they start the mower, they are doing environmental stewardship,” she said. “Anytime they plant a plant, anytime they make a decision about what kind of light bulb to put in the sanctuary, that’s environmental stewardship.”Case and Walsh each had their own reasons for getting involved in environmental stewardship.“One of the biggest steps for me is trying to get people to see the connection between taking care of the environmental, God and our spiritual world,” Case said. “It satisfies my need for a practical application of my faith.”Walsh’s involvement grew out of a desire to find a way and an interest to become more involved in the life of the church. “It was something I could connect with. I love being outside, I’m an avid birder and gardener. For me, it was a perfect fit.”And for Nelson, environmental stewardship has rekindled the gift of God in him so that he doesn’t “take things for granted in creation.”The next horizon for the committee is to involve younger children and families in caring for the environment. Walsh would like to see the natural playground, now in the planning stages, to “include some space where you can gather families together and get them actively participating in environmental stewardship activities.”Case and Walsh invite other churches interested in embarking on their own environmental stewardship work to contact them for help as mentors. “We could tell them here’s what we’ve been doing and this is how we got started,” Walsh said. “Getting people to more actively organize themselves is something I would wish to see.”— Mike Patterson is a San Antonio-based freelance writer and member of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Blanco, Texas.

The modesty of the street front restoration was integral to the overall success of the home in maintaining its role in the historical and aesthetic significance of Northcote.Save this picture!Courtesy of Damon Hills + Finnis ArchitectsThe dilapidation of the original dwelling meant that it wasn’t possible to keep or restore a significant amount of interior detailing. To retain the original characteristics of the dwelling, modern interpretations of these features where employed. The rotting floorboards were replaced and retained with new boards, a craftsman style fireplace was installed in the same location as the original which was hidden behind old joinery and skirting boards replaced.Save this picture!Section AThe threshold between new and old is gestured through the hallway that meets you with three steps upwards towards the modern extension, as floor materiality transitions from floorboard to polished concrete. As to not mock the pitched roof that is typical of the original and neighbouring bungalows, a flat roofline and a more modern silhouette for the extension was envisioned. Through this, the extension wouldn’t be visible from the street elevation and would also be easily distinguishable from the original.Save this picture!Courtesy of Damon Hills + Finnis ArchitectsThe view from the hallway gives a glimpse of what awaits as the extension adds an element of surprise as you navigate to the rear of the property. The transition from the original weatherboard home with smaller window openings to an open plan modern living/kitchen area is revealed.Save this picture!Courtesy of Damon Hills + Finnis ArchitectsThe extension was designed to nestle in with the backyard and act as a garden pavilion with full height windows bringing lush trees and greenery indoors. The step up in the design also meant that the concrete slab, deck and back lawn were at the same level. The extension would also be at a high enough level to include clerestory windows to filter more light through to the living area.Save this picture!Courtesy of Damon Hills + Finnis ArchitectsTwo differing architectural styles have been married to celebrate and enhance the dignified heritage of this original Californian bungalow in Northcote.

Anne-Sophie Le Mauff has left Iraq

first_img RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts IraqMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan News Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” The French foreign ministry has denied asking Iraq to expel her, saying that it was “a sovereign decision of the Iraqi authorities”.The journalist told Reporters Without Borders that she was intended to work temporarily out of the Jordanian capital.———————-21.06.2005 – Government to expel French journalistReporters Without Borders today condemned an Iraqi government decision to expel French freelance journalist Anne-Sophie Le Mauff, reportedly at the request of the French authorities.Le Mauff told the press freedom organisation that Iraqi interior ministry officials informed her today she would receive the expulsion order tomorrow. She said they told her the decision had been taken at her own government’s request.”Expelling a foreign journalist is a serious press freedom violation and does great harm to the image of a government that has always stressed its support for democratic values,” Reporters Without Borders said.”And it is unacceptable if the French authorities really did ask the Iraqis to expel Le Mauff,” the press freedom organisation said. “We are clearly aware of the gravity of the situation in Iraq and the risks being run by all journalists, including French ones. But it is not up to the French authorities to decided which journalist should or should not stay in Iraq. It is up to the journalists themselves and their employers. Government meddling, even for safety reasons, cannot be tolerated.”Reporters Without Borders added: “This is all the more absurd as we have already been in contact with Le Mauff about reducing the risks for her. She promised us yesterday she would not leave her hotel as long as the current situation continues. At the same time, the various news organisations she works for in France and elsewhere were considering the possibility of bringing her back to France and guaranteeing her a reasonable income for as long as it took to find a way to ensure her safety in Iraq.”The French newspaper Le Canard Enchaîné reported on 15 June that France’s ambassador in Iraq, Bernard Bajolet, had written to Le Mauff asking her to leave the country. “Like your fellow journalists, you must be asking yourself if the freedom and the need to report the news warrants such risks for you and for the others, as well as the serious consequences that a possible abduction might entail for our country,” the letter reportedly said, adding: “There is no way of justifying your continuing to work in Iraq.”Le Mauff has been in Iraq for more than a year, stringing for a range of news media including the French dailies L’Humanité and Sud-Ouest, and such radio stations as Radio Monte-Carlo, Radio Vatican and Radio Canada. to go further Follow the news on Iraq December 16, 2020 Find out morecenter_img RSF_en French journalist Anne Sophie Le Mauff, correspondent in Iraq for several French-language media, left Baghdad on 24 June for Amman after being ordered to leave by the Iraqi authorities.
