Sales across the group jumped by more than eight per cent to £32.9bn over the period.Overall UK sales were up by around three per cent. Asked if the UK economy was likely to lurch back into recession, Leahy said: “My starting point is the global economy, which is in a pretty robust recovery. If you look at the customer psychology and the pulling power of the developing markets, I think they will pull Europe and the United States into a stable and established recovery.”The company said UK like-for-like sales excluding petrol rose 1.3 per cent in the second quarter, compared with 1.1 per cent in the first quarter – but, adjusting for VAT sales, the figure was just 0.3 per cent higher over the half-year.Tesco has more than 4,800 stores in 14 countries, with two thirds of its profit and sales generated in the UK.Leahy was delivering his last set of results before handing over to international chief Phil Clarke.Kate Calvert, analyst at Seymour Pierce, said: “These results show how with good cost control in the UK and internationally, Tesco is seeing the benefits of the global economic recovery and the benefit of food inflation.” whatsapp Tags: NULL Tuesday 5 October 2010 8:26 pm Show Comments ▼ Tesco talks up economy as profit lifts KCS-content whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times

The South Korean company operates one of the world’s largest shipping lines, but filed for receivership in August. As a result, some 97 of its container ships with 2,500 seafarers on board became stranded at sea as port managers refused them entry in case creditors used legal powers to seize the ships. With the financial status of the company in doubt it was questionable whether the money existed to pay for the ships to be unloaded.Full article.

Hyderabad is one of the fastest growing cities in India. The old city is space stagnant and the development is rapidly moving towards and happening around the new city, which has the space to absorb it. The soaring land prices around here are a direct result of this. The families are tightly knit in India, often staying for generations together. The clients are one such family of three generations (and a probable fourth in the near future) moving to this new part of the city. The land parcels available here would mean they would have to depart from the spacious, horizontal lifestyle they were so used to before, and move into a more vertical settlement.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe site is a modest 60 feet by 75 feet, in a dense layout of apartments five stories tall. It is abutted by roads on the North and West, these being the only sides not having buildings in close proximity. The idea since inception has always been to keep the connection between the generations alive now and in future. The general notion of an apartment is to allot privacy between its units. We had to mutate this idea into a model of apartment which provides privacy, all the while keeping the family connected. This was achieved by opening up living spaces into large open courts which are of double height in nature which offer connectivity between levels preventing social isolation with the family. These reduce the scale of the building visually and open on the corners with most frontage: on north-east and north-west.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographySave this picture!Axonometric RoofThe stilt is left for parking and servant rooms. The oldest generation is allotted the lower most, first floor with the next one on the second floor. The youngest generation has the last two floors to themselves with the space left for a probable future generation used as recreation spaces for now. Every floor has access to a green court. These are covered with metal louvers and perforated walls to create privacy from adjacent properties. Through these spaces, one can walk out on to the balcony; converse with a family member reading paper, all the while taking in the aromas of food being prepared in the kitchen below. These courts also have large projections in them which act as spaces for yoga, waiting, prayer or dining; depending on the level.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographySave this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyThe lower two and upper two levels are open within themselves also, connected through large double height central spaces. These contain the internal staircases leading to the upper level in each. The walls are kept stark white to enhance the spaciousness, with a turmeric yellow or earthy orange highlighting some walls to create visual depth and contrast. The doors and windows are Indian teak deco painted white. The vast polyurethane based concrete flooring has lighter pigmentation for lower and darker pigmentation for the top two floors. The furniture is kept to the bare minimum to avoid cluttering inside. Most of the interior palette is light in nature except the bedroom on the fourth level with wooden flooring which has a sky lit court of its own.Save this picture!© Monika Sathe PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessGoldtree House / Hartree + Associates ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHouse Under the Pines / Idee architectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Hyderabad, Telangana, IndiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

In the middle of Jonschwil in Alttoggenburg, Switzerland, a typical old storage house was constructively secured. Three superimposed rooms with sanitary cells were installed one above the other, opening up a spiraling and vertically upward living space through all three floors. On the square floor plan of 6×6 meters emerges now a “small house” with not quite 99 square meters of living space. The openings in the interior connect the rooms, large windows create connections to the nearby surroundings and perspectives emerge. The spatial circumstances remind of Japanese room constellations. The house has no corridors but consists of a sequence of rooms. They can be experienced in different sequences and as well by sitting on horizontal nets.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lukas Lenherr ArchitekturSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Lukas Lenherr ArchitekturAll materials are clearly reduced and natural. The contrasts and cracks of the materials meet each other without lamination. Often, the materials are unconventionally used and the traces of work are part of the atmosphere. The house has no cellar because of the groundwater and the technical equipment is tiny that it can be found in a closet in the washroom. Small also means a little volume to heat. Thick insulation of wood fibre and sheep’s wool protects the house. The wood stove in the middle floor can get suppored by the floor heating. The weather will reflect over the years on the wooden façade.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lukas Lenherr ArchitekturThe squared timbers from local larch and the simple wooden windows from pine will react differently depending on the localisation of the facade and to the surrounding. The later emerging screw pattern counteracts the aging. According to the preservation of the townscape image, the restrained building refers to the historical context and it shapes the place sustainably. Reflections of Sustainability The building materials are untreated, open screwed, and mostly uncut. They are removable and reusable. The house can be seen as a store of building materials. The kitchen also works according to this principle of reuse. A wooden frame in which the devices are placed and come from the component exchange trade.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lukas Lenherr ArchitekturThe idea of reuse also in detail. The small footprint offers enough space for a family with two children. The vertical living space connects all rooms and living in the smallest space becomes an event that promotes connections. Retreats are always possible and therefore more conscious to experience. The small footprint will also be followed by low construction costs. In addition, there is low energy consumption, which entails small additional costs. The fact that the environment is small is more of a coincidence. In any case, it is easier to maintain and offers space for a vegetable garden that is available at the expense of the parking lot. Reduction, renunciation, and sufficiency are important representatives of sustainability for us – and as is well known, less is more.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lukas Lenherr ArchitekturProject gallerySee allShow lessLast Week to Vote for the ArchDaily Building of the Year Awards FinalistsArchitecture News3D Printing a 2-Meter-High Column in 30 Minutes: What’s Next With This Technology?Interviews Share Projects Constructor: CopyAbout this officeLukas Lenherr ArchitekturOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramOn FacebookJonschwilSwitzerlandPublished on February 02, 2021Cite: “Kleines House / Lukas Lenherr Architektur” 02 Feb 2021.

You can now donate Beenz to charity. Web-based loyalty programme Beenz, “the Web’s currency”, is encouraging collectors to donate their Beenz to CARE International’s appeal for the victims of the Orissa cyclone. You can donate any amount of Beenz but there is a minimum number of 100 which they will process. “But that’s only about 30p”, say Beenz, so encourage you to give more.It’s not clear from the site whether Beenz make an administrative charge for this appeal. Indeed, the appeal page on CARE’s site is surprisingly lacking in useful details such as the duration of the appeal, the monetary value of Beenz, how much has been raised to date, and indeed CARE’s registered charity number. Still, CARE International’s involvement with Beenz is a commendable partnership with a high-profile UK Web company. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

iStock(NEW YORK) — A female state senator from Michigan has come forward with a sexual harassment complaint against a male lawmaker in the wake of recent claims from a reporter regarding his conduct, to help show that “this behavior is a pattern.”Michigan state Sen. Mallory McMorrow, D-Royal Oak, told ABC News she “felt a level of responsibility” to tell her story about an incident she says occurred with Sen. Peter J. Lucido, R-Shelby Twp., after a claim last week he made inappropriate comments to a young capitol reporter.“My heart sank because she said, ‘It made me feel small.’ And that’s exactly how I felt in November of 2018,” said McMorrow, responding to recent allegations against Lucido by Allison Donahue, a reporter for the Michigan Advance.“I felt a level of responsibility for not having said something then, and I wanted to support her reporting with a story that’s corroborated to show that this is a pattern of behavior, not just an isolated incident,” McMorrow added.Thinking back to her orientation day at the Senate building in Lansing two days after the November 2018 election — which, she said, included sexual harassment training — McMorrow said her introduction to Lucido turned into a “degrading and deflating” moment.“As we shook hands, he held his other hand very, very low on my back, so his fingers were grazing my hip. So it was a very close conversation and he held it there,” she said. “I told him that I just beat incumbent Marty Kollenberg. And he looked me up and down, while still holding onto my low back, raised his eyebrows and said, ‘I can see why.’”“It felt like it reduced everything I had accomplished,” she continued. “It didn’t matter to him that I had just run a really hard campaign for a year and a half or that I have a successful career or whether or not I was qualified — it was just, ‘Of course you won, because of what you look like.’“In terms of the sexual harassment spectrum, this is more on the creepy scale. It unnerved me and made me feel gross and degraded.”Sen. Rosemary Bayer, D-Beverly Hills, confirmed to Crain’s Detroit Business that she witnessed Lucido with his arm “reaching around [McMorrow’s] back.”McMorrow told ABC News she told her husband the day it happened, but as a woman in the minority party and one of the youngest people in the Senate, she “shrugged it off and sat back down.”“I recognize that as another sitting senator that I’m in a position of power to come forward — so if I can, and that helps make this a safer place to work, then I will sleep better at night,” McMorrow added. “Even if that means the end of my political career.”In a statement provided to ABC News on Tuesday, Lucido denied the sexual harassment allegations, calling them “completely untrue and politically motivated.”McMorrow told ABC News she was “disappointed by his response” and that Lucido has not reached out to her, adding, “For him to say my claim is politically motivated is obscene.”“The reaction from Lucido to Allison’s story has morphed to portray this as a one-off or joke that she somehow interpreted in the wrong way. I hope to show that it’s a pattern of his behavior,” she said.Donahue says Lucido told her last week she could “have a lot of fun” with a group of boys who were there on a visit from De La Salle Collegiate, an all-boys Catholic high school and Lucido’s alma mater.“‘You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you,’” he said, according to Donahue.Donahue wrote in a first-person account for the nonprofit politics news site that she told Lucido the comment was unprofessional and that he would not have said such a thing to an older journalist or male counterpart.According to Donahue, Lucido assured her he meant no harm and that it was a reference to how students at an all-boys school didn’t know how to act around women.“It was nothing disingenuous. It was no harm,” the state senator, who’s married with three children, told the Detroit Free Press. Lucido also said he didn’t feel he owed Donohue an apology because he thought the quotes were taken out of context.”He changed course and later issued a statement apologizing “for the misunderstanding” and “for offending Allison Donahue.”“His response went from acknowledgment to victim-blaming to deflecting,” McMorrow said. “From my understanding, over the course of an entire week, he didn’t once call Allison Donahue to apologize.”McMorrow told ABC News that in the wake of what happened between Lucido and Donahue, all eight female state senators convened on Thursday to “talk about improved response mechanisms.”“The culture feels like, as long as you’re effective we turn a blind eye to how people are treated, and I felt like that needed an immediate response,” she said. “So I wanted to make sure to explain and share that I have a story.”McMorrow said that “immediately” Sen. Rosemary Bayer told her, “‘Oh, I remember that his hand was way down there.’”McMorrow said she shared her story with Donahue “in confidence last week,” and then, “I called her back last night to let her know that I would be filing a report.”“I give her a lot of credit for standing up at 22 years old. I wouldn’t have done this had she not shared what happened,” McMorrow said.She says her hope now is that this acts as a catalyst for change within the Lansing capitol building and beyond.“What I hope changes, cause there’s always going to be people who cross the line — particularly in politics — is that we can talk to each other,” she said. “If someone tells you they’re offended, reach out and find out why — don’t immediately go on defense.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

ABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — Three former students at the University of Michigan, all of who claim to be victims of sexual abuse at the hands of a deceased school physician, spoke out Thursday on what they described as “decades of sexual abuse and ignoring victims” at the school.One of the alleged victims, Tad Deluca, is the first person to have brought forward the allegations against Dr. Robert E. Anderson to coaches at the Ann-Arbor university, according to his lawyers.“I spoke up by letter in 1975 and was ignored and denigrated by the University of Michigan. I spoke up again by letter in 2018 … once again the University of Michigan ignored me,” Deluca said at a press conference in Southfield, Michigan. “I’m here today to speak up again to let the University of Michigan know I will not be ignored again.”Deluca and his attorney said he was kicked off the team for reporting a complaint against Anderson in 1975, which later resulted in him losing his scholarship. Deluca said he came forward again in 2018 after being inspired by the victims of disgraced USA Olympic gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar, who was sentenced to more than 175 years in prison for sexually assaulting numerous athletes.Rick Fitzgerald, university spokesperson, praised the “three brave men who came forward today to share their stories” and that they “delivered a powerful message.”“As U-M President Mark Schlissel has said, we are deeply sorry for the harm caused by Anderson,” Fitzgerald said in a statement to ABC News. “The university engaged a firm with deep expertise to conduct an independent, thorough, and unflinching review of the facts – wherever they may lead. Through the work of this independent firm, there will be a full, public accounting of the harms caused by Anderson as well as the institutional failings that allowed him to keep practicing.”“We again urge anyone to come forward and talk directly and confidentially to our outside, independent investigators. It is truly important for the investigators to hear the voices of survivors for the investigators to understand the full scope of harm and its root causes,” the statement added.Deluca wrote in his original letter to his then-coach Bill Johannesen that no matter the injury he sustained, “[Anderson] always makes you drop your drawers,” according to attorney Parker Stinar.During treatment sessions with Anderson, the doctor felt Deluca’s penis, his testicles and inserted his finger into his rectum, according to his letter, parts of which were read by Stinar. Former wrestler Andy Hrovat, who was one of the first to publicly come forward with the allegations, was also in attendance at the press conference.“Our culture in this sport, and even other sports, is make no excuses. You’re not a victim. You gotta suck it up. You gotta push through it, and that is very difficult, especially for men, to stand up and say, ‘This did happen. It was wrong,’” Hrovat said. “You may not see yourself as a victim, but you are.”Hrovat, Deluca and another alleged victim, Thomas Evasheski, all encouraged others to come forward and speak up.Stinar said he expects “hundreds more victims” to come forward. He said there is a meeting scheduled with the University of Michigan to discuss the allegations and hold them accountable. Stinar did not give a date and only disclosed it would be in the “near future.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. read more
