Service sector growth jumps to eight-month high

first_img whatsapp Service sector growth jumps to eight-month high Show Comments ▼ Activity in the dominant services sector expanded at its fastest pace in eight months in January as business recovered after December’s snow disruption, a survey showed, which may bolster the case for higher rates.The purchasing managers’ survey from Markit/CIPS also showed a record jump in input cost inflation in the services sector, which is likely to worry Bank of England policymakers who hold their rate-setting meeting next week.The headline services PMI activity index rose to 54.5 in January from a 20-month low of 49.7 in December, the highest since last May and well above forecasts for a reading of 51.4.Markit said some businesses had received additional orders in January, displaced from December because of the snow.“The service sector rebounded in January as the country thawed out from the coldest December in a century,” said Chris Williamson, chief economist at survey compiler Markit.“But the underlying trend remains one of only very modest growth, and well down on the strong rate seen in the first half of last year,” he added.He said that taken together, this week’s PMI surveys indicated the economy was growing at an underlying quarterly rate of around 0.4 per cent.The Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee is divided over whether to raise interest rates from record lows to tackle above-target inflation or wait longer to see how the recovery fares.Britain’s economy contracted by 0.5 per cent in the last quarter of 2010, a worrying development for a government that is introducing deep cuts to public spending. whatsapp John Dunne center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure SolutionBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeBlood Pressure For LifeWhy Doctors May No Longer Prescribe Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure For LifeLiver Health1 Bite of This Melts Belly And Arm Fat (Take Before Bed)Liver HealthAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCute Thursday 3 February 2011 4:55 am Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Sharelast_img read more

Churches in Colombia support victims of land dispute

first_img Rector Pittsburgh, PA By Marcelo SchneiderPosted May 4, 2012 Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Latin America, [World Council of Churches] While drug production and trafficking are the main problems in Colombia, it would be misleading to think these are the only ones. Land grabs in the country serve as the pivotal reason behind armed conflicts and human rights violations. In this situation, churches in Colombia are struggling to support victims of land disputes, as well as raising awareness about the issue on local and international level.To develop an ecumenical response to the land grabbing issue, which has resulted in forced disappearances and killings of thousands lately, the Latin American Council of Churches (CLAI) along with the World Council of Churches (WCC), ACT Alliance, The Lutheran World Federation and other ecumenical organizations have decided to initiate a programme inspired by the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI).In a meeting in Colombia’s capital Bogotá in 2009, church leaders stressed the need for an ecumenical accompaniment programme and advocacy to address violence in the country. The same year, the human rights situation in Colombia was the theme of the WCC’s United Nation’s Advocacy Week in New York.In response to the call from its members CLAI, with support from the WCC and the ACT Alliance, developed a local structure of ecumenical engagement to support victims of the conflict over land and territory in Colombia called the Programme of Ecumenical Accompaniment in Colombia (PEAC).PEAC is currently in process of implementation with the Rev. Christopher Ferguson of the United Church of Canada as its international coordinator. A national coordinator will be appointed soon and PEAC is expecting the arrival of the first ecumenical accompaniers later this year.Conflict in Montes de MaríaOne of the main focus for churches in Colombia is the region of Montes de Maria. The region is located in the Northwest Colombia. The region consists of countryside lying along the coast and functions as a corridor between Venezuela and the Caribbean.Due to its strategic location and wealth of natural resources, Montes de Maria was the target of many territorial disputes and internal armed conflicts. It was in Montes de María that the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), a farmers’ resistance group which became part of Colombia’s largest guerrilla movement, went on to take control of the area.The region also has a strong presence of paramilitaries, who established a reign of terror, beating down and driving out social organizations and establishing strict control points, displacing many people from their lands. Montes de Maria was one of the epicentres of massacres, intimidation and land grabs.In Montes de María, churches have a long history of standing with the people and social movements seeking peace and social justice. The region has a visible Roman Catholic presence. In the 1980s church leaders struggled to restore peace and promoted pastoral dialogues through ecumenical initiatives.The Ecumenical Network of Colombia (Red Ecuménica de Colombia) coordinated efforts among Presbyterian, Catholic, Anglican, Pentecostal and Methodist churches and civil society organizations. A regional development network initiated the “peace laboratory” project promoted by the Roman Catholic and Mennonite churches. One WCC member church, the Presbyterian Church of Colombia, has supported local and regional social organizations through a network called Agenda Caribe which accompanies groups such as the cooperative of the Finca Alemania in San Onofre.Supporting communities in Finca AlemaniaThe Finca Alemania is a small farmers’ collective in Montes de Maria that is emblematic of the violence and political complexity of the conflict. It is also a symbol of the strength of the people in their struggle for justice. Located a few kilometres away from the town of San Onofre, its inhabitants have returned to the area after having been harassed and displaced by one of most vicious of the paramilitary forces.When the 57 families established the collective farm, they took loans (around $545,000). As they were not able to pay back the loans with interest, they were driven off the land, their buildings were ruined, and cattle were stolen. With the help of human right groups the community has received a court ruling providing relief from the threat of foreclosure. Yet the issue of the debt is not fully resolved, and the situation for many is uncertain.In the struggle to reclaim their land, one of the community leaders, Rogelio Martinez, was killed on 18 May 2010. Traumatized, the families of the Finca Alemania considered abandoning the farm. However, Julia Isabel Torres-Cancio, the widow of the slain leader, did not leave. When the other members of the collective saw Julia’s determination to remain on the land, they decided to join her struggle to defend their rightsJulia is now the chair of the board of collective. As she sees it, conflicts in San Onofre are caused by land grabbing, where violence and intimidation are used to force people to sell their lands. “We stand invisible in this conflict. Therefore, it would be good to have outsiders witnessing our daily struggle to defend our land,” she said.“The death of my husband was part of the plan for another forced displacement,” said Torres-Cancio. She believes that her decision to stay in Finca Alemania broke a cycle of displacement. For Bishop Francisco Duque of the Episcopal Church in Colombia, the socio-political situation in Montes de María reflects experiences of the civil society in Colombia, as well as the need for support to communities faced with violence.“It is necessary that religious institutions unite efforts to be present and visible in these regions. Since we know that in areas where there is visibility for the accompaniment, the action of armed groups decreases due to the shift in political scenario and the empowerment given to the local communities,” said Duque, who presides the CLAI Colombia Roundtable.— Marcelo Schneider works as the WCC communication liaison for Latin America, based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. He travelled to Colombia including Montes de María and Finca Alemania to report on the ecumenical initiatives in the country.

The Biblical roots of Groundhog Day

This is a redicilously inaccurate and misleading article.center_img Mama Mia UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here Punxsutawney Phil is not the only weather predicting groundhog in America, just the most famous, thanks to Clymer Freas, who was the editor of the Punxsutawney Spirit newspaper in 1886. On February 2, 1886, Freas issued the following proclamation:“Today is groundhog day and up to the time of going to press the beast has not seen its shadow.”Freas also declared Phil to be the only true weather-forecasting groundhog.  By the way, Phil’s full name is; “Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary.”How is this connected to the Bible?Forty days after Jesus was born his parents took him to the Temple: “When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took Him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord.” Luke 2:22.  This would be February 2nd, according to our current calendar.But how did the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple become Groundhog Day?In John 8:12 Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world.”  It was not hard for people who lived by candlelight to make the connection.  At some point in history people began bringing candles to the priests to be blessed 40 days after the celebration of the birth of Christ.  The ceremony was called, “Candle Mass.”But how many candles should one bring to be blessed?  You wanted enough to make it through the rest of the winter, right?This is where the need for a weather prediction became necessary.  Long term weather predictions are hard enough with modern technology.  Centuries ago it was primarily based upon superstitions.  In Germany they used hedgehogs:“Wenn der Igel Lichtmess seinen Schatten sieht, so Kriecht er wieder auf sechs Wochen ins Loch.“Loosely translated;“If the hedgehog sees his shadow at Candlemas, he will crawl back into his hole for another six weeks”German settlers in Pennsylvania continued the tradition, although they switched from hedgehogs to groundhogs, which were plentiful in North America.Note the connection to Candlemas Day.  Also note the “reverse psychology.”  If the sun is shining on 2/2 we will have 6 more weeks of winter.How accurate is that groundhog anyway?According to the Stormfax Almanac the groundhog’s seasonal forecasting accuracy is somewhat low, having been correct only 39% of the time.

Everything is brighter: New Solar Co-ops Launching in West Orange County

first_img Please enter your name here From the Orange County Government NewsroomOrange County is building on the momentum of the state’s largest and most successful solar co-op by again partnering with Solar United Neighbors of Florida to bring a new solar co-op to residents of West Orange County. The new co-op is now open and runs through mid-June 2018. Solar co-ops provide bulk discounts of up to 20 percent for a group of homeowners interested in purchasing solar panels. As part of a solar co-op, each participant signs an individual contract with the group-chosen installer, and all participants benefit from the discount. All homeowners who reside in West Orange County, including in city jurisdictions, are eligible to participate in their respective co-op. Earlier this year, more than 150 residents of East Orange County formed a co-op and selected Goldin Solar to serve the group. Members of that co-op are now in the process of signing contracts with the installer. Orange County launched its first solar co-op in the summer of 2016 with 515 participants. Of those households, 79 installed solar through the co-op, accounting for 702.83 kW of new solar capacity in the County. In addition, $1.3 million was invested in solar with this co-op with total energy savings over a lifetime of the solar array of $3.5 million. Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and her family were among the 79 households who joined this first solar co-op. The final two meetings in West Orange County are listed below:Orange County West Solar Co-op Information SessionMonday, June 46 p.m.John Bridges Community Center, Building A445 West 13th StreetApopka, FL 32703Orange County West Solar Co-op Information SessionSaturday, June 2311:30 a.m.Jackson Neighborhood Center1002 West Carter StreetOrlando, FL 32805About Solar United Neighbors of Florida:   Solar United Neighbors expands access to solar by educating Florida residents about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening Florida’s solar policies and its community of solar supporters.

Midweek Madness – The old ball in the jersey trick

first_imgWednesday May 14, 2008 Midweek Madness – The old ball in the jersey trick A few weeks back in the fiercely contested match between Georgia and Spain at the Tbilisi National Stadium in Georgia, there was a hilarious incident from the big Lelos lock, the likes of which has never been witnessed on the international stage I’m sure. Last seen on the school playground, or perhaps even in your own backyard, the old hide the ball in the shirt and run with it trick is one that if done correctly, will cause confusion in the ranks of the opposition and earn you those much needed extra yards in your quest to head to the tryline. This is a slight variation on sticking the ball up your own jersey, but just as effective if done properly, as you’ll see in this rare footage from the game that was played in front of an impressive attendance of over 20 000 people. Georgia’s Mamuka Gorgodze made the tackle, grabbing hold of the Spanish fullbacks jersey, before ripping it off him, ball and all, and setting off downfield. He got away with it for a fair while too, before making the pass to his teamate that was just too obvious and got spotted by the ref. Georgia won the European Nations Cup with this 22-20 victory over Spain, and Gorgodze actually scored three tries in this match – although I’m told they were of the more tradtional variety.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This was solved by creating a center zone of hanging gardens consisting of these Five Elements: Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, and “Metal”.  This is reminiscent of the old houses in Hoi An Ancient Town.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAll of the family’s activity and space is centered around and adjoins the central plantings and hanging garden such as: reception, dining, fitness, chatting, reading, and resting.  This Open Central Area effectively allows the maximum amount of natural light and air for all rooms.   It is a very effective way to establish green trees and plantings along the walls.  Natural rain is allowed to provide water and natural air to this central core for a cooler environment and humidity that plants need to thrive.Save this picture!SectionA really enjoyable and multi-use area is the “family sky park”, where kids can run around in the green grass and cool air.  A small corner of the park is a fragrant garden or vegetables for dinner. Space for childhood memories prior to urbanization.  There is room for recreation, relaxing, barbeques, and enjoying the cool night air and sky.  This rooftop green area provides cooling for the house plus recreational choices.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessCultural and Artistic Center in Benxi / TAOASelected ProjectsWhy Are Architects Needed? 8 Speakers Give Their Answers During Rising Architecture …Videos Share Vietnam ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882007/s-house-alpes-gdb Clipboard Photographs:  Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiRecommended ProductsWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsFiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaWindowsVEKAWindows – SOFTLINE 82 ADWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedText description provided by the architects. From the architects: Urban development has many environmental implications: the consequences of people’s alienation from nature, the majority of Vietnamese people living down the narrow or crowded streets, and the ever increasing number of vehicles.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe mission of Ho Khue Architects (ALPES Green Design & Build) Office is reconnecting people and nature. Changing their environment with innovative and healthy designs changes their perspective and improves their living conditions and lives. S house is one of the works contributing to that mission.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe “S” House is located in a new residential area in the Danang City Center, Vietnam.  There is a lot of traffic and noise however is a very convenient location.   Thus we have a good location that has some environmental problems for quality living.  In addition, all the buildings are the same architecture, not interesting or energy efficient.Save this picture!DiagramAn innovative application of onsite precast concrete sheets for the exterior facade accomplished both saving money and time during construction.  These decorative sheets combined with long vertical windows and adjacent plantings of vining plants reducing the noise and pollution entering the residence.  The result was a beautiful and unique house that was protected from the large road used by many trucks.last_img read more
