Wednesday 25 August 2010 8:41 pm FEARS of a double-dip in the US housing market intensified yesterday after data showed that new home sales fell at the sharpest monthly pace in July since records began. Sales of new homes plummeted 12.4 per cent to an annual rate of 276,000 – the lowest since the data was first recorded in 1963 and well below the market’s expectations of a rate of 330,000 homes. The Commerce Department also revised down June’s annual sales pace to 315,000 units. New home sales have struggled to pick up over the past few months and the annual pace is only a quarter of what was seen in the boom years of the early 2000s.New York-based Steven Ricchiuto at Mizuho Securities said: “It is a bad report through and through, there is nothing in the details to tell you that things are improving whatsoever. The odds of the dreaded double-dip are increasing.”The downbeat data initially weighed on US equities but buying activity capped losses.Analysts expect the pace of new home sales to remain depressed for some months to come and predicted possible years of excess supply. ING’s Teunis Brosens said: “Sales may recover slightly in the coming months, as the demand fallout following the expiry of the homebuyer tax credit fades. But we expect them to remain low.”“Homebuilders continue to face tough competition from distressed sales. These typically sell at a discount and currently make up about 30 per cent of total sales. Moreover, while the building spree peaked in 2006, the housing market is still burdened with substantial excess supply. It may take several years to clear this excess,” he warned. whatsapp US new home sales slump KCS-content Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com
Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL whatsapp KCS-content Tuesday 8 March 2011 7:33 pm Retirees face decades of debt as living costs soar whatsapp A FIFTH of UK retirees still have thousands of pounds of mortgage debt while a third owe money on credit cards, a report showed yesterday.Outstanding mortgage debt among over-55s has also risen by a fifth to more than £65,000 from £54,500 in February 2010, according to Aviva’s latest Real Retirement Report.The survey painted a picture of retirement-age people too reliant on the state pension and borrowing. Over-75-year-olds now hold an average £3,370 in credit card debt, while just 42 per cent of those retiring have a private pension provision. “While mortgage borrowing generally falls as people age, this does not appear to be the case with credit cards,” the report said. “In an ideal world people would start the count-down to retirement without debt, but for many people this has not been possible due to economic realities, poor ﬁnancial decisions or family obligations,” said Aviva director Clive Bolton.Most blamed the rising cost of living for their debt, and almost a third said they would cut back on luxuries to pay it back. But eight per cent were looking to return to work and six per cent to sell their house to pay it off.

Enter Your Email Address After rising in value by nearly 10 times between the beginning of last year and January of this year, the GGP (LSE: GGP) share price has fallen back. Since the beginning of 2021, shares in the early-stage gold miner have fallen by 44%. From an entirely objective perspective, this decline seems to make sense. At the beginning of the year, Greatland’s market capitalisation had reached £1bn. This seemed to be excessive for a company with no revenues.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…That’s not to say that the company is not worthy of a £1bn value. It may be one day, just not yet. But with the business progressing with the development of its flagship Havieron Gold project, which it now holds in a joint venture with Newcrest Mining, I think the outlook for the business is improving every day. GGP share price pullback Alongside the fact that the company’s valuation appeared high at the beginning of the year, 2021 is also turning into a bad year for investors in the gold mining sector in general.The price of yellow metal has declined by around 11% since the beginning of the year. This has dragged down the share prices of mining companies, including Greatland’s joint venture partner Newcrest. The Australia-based mining group has seen the value of its stock fall 8% in 2021. This is one of the most significant risks facing investors of gold mining corporations. The price of gold can be incredibly volatile, but costs are generally relatively inflexible. This means miners have limited control over profit margins. If the price of gold falls, but costs remain high, a company’s profit margin will come under pressure, potentially reducing profits and leading to a lower share price. As Greatland is not yet producing any gold, the falling price of the metal won’t impact profit margins. However, it will affect the value of the Havieron project. A lower gold price will mean a lower lifetime value of the project. This explains, to some extent, why the GGP share price slumped over the past few months.Short-sighted mentalityI think this is a very short-sighted mentality. Yes, figures may show Havieron’s output may be worth less today than it was at the beginning of 2021, but this project could have a 25-year lifespan.What’s more, over the past 20 years, the price of gold has returned around 7% per annum. Of course, this does not guarantee the price of gold will continue to increase at this rate for the foreseeable future.Still, I think it illustrates the long-term potential of gold as an asset.As such, I would use the recent decline in the GGP share price to buy a handful of shares in the company to hold as part of a diversified portfolio. I think the recent pullback fails to acknowledge the long-term potential of its world-class gold mine.I should point out that investing in early-stage gold miners is incredibly risky. Therefore, this opportunity may not be suitable for all investors. The most considerable risk it faces is running out of money before production begins. This is what I’d do about the GGP share price Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Rotterdam has a growing demand for student housing. To address this shortage, Mecanoo was asked to design a student housing complex on a prominent location of the Erasmus campus: at the intersection of Abram van Rijckevorselweg and Burgemeester Oudlaan. The prominent corner site, while offering an opportunity to strengthen the campus’s visual identity, also came with the challenges of a limited building envelope and noisy traffic.Save this picture!Courtesy of MecanooInternal street and collective functions. The eight-story complex accommodates 281 studio units for international students. A central courtyard brings light and air into the heart of the building and extends as an internal street, connecting the complex with the campus’s street network. On both ends of the building, this central open space leads to a generous lobby. The courtyard also provides access to individual rooms, the collective study space, a launderette, the concierge’s office, and bike parking. Save this picture!Courtesy of MecanooSave this picture!Courtesy of MecanooSave this picture!Courtesy of MecanooThe transparent plinth of the 25-meter-high building contains rooms with areas between 20 and 40 square metres. These units have four-meter-tall ceilings, allowing for the addition of mezzanine-level sleeping space with a washroom and toilet underneath. The rooms on the upper storeys vary in size from 22 to 24 square metres. They are arranged on either side of a looped corridor, which has a different colour pattern on each floor. The rooms can be accessed through a lift or through the staircase connected to the internal street. On the roof, a collective terrace with a wooden deck and benches offers a meeting place with a generous view of the campus where students can enjoy a drink together, lay in the sun or organize a party. Save this picture!Courtesy of MecanooWrapped in gold. The student housing complex has a classical subdivision of plinth, body, and crown. The facade is wrapped in gold-tinted aluminum panels. Changing daylight creates a play of shadows along with the harmonica-like pleated facade panels, which gradually vary from gold to silver when viewed from different angles. To give the building’s crown a subtle accent, the pleated pattern is reversed on the top level. Next, to each window, the aluminum fold protrudes outwards, invisibly integrating acoustically attenuated ventilation. That way, fresh air can enter while traffic noise is blocked. The entire building is circular and was realised within one year, which was made possible by prefabricating the structure and facade elements, including the windows. Thanks to the efficient construction process, the building was ready to accommodate new students by the beginning of the academic year.

Throughout November, 140 iZettle Readers were deployed at various on-the-ground events raising more than £37,000 for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and suicide.Each card donation averaged almost £10 at £9.42, and the iZettle readers were used to collect funds in a variety of ways, from corporate fundraising challenges to student collections at universities across the UK, to community ambassadors raising through their networks.Anne-Cécile Berthier, Movember Country Director UK & Europe at Movember said:“We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of both iZettle and Visa for this year’s Movember campaign.“By providing us with iZettle readers for our key supporters and communities we have been able to give them additional support with their fundraising. Having the possibility to offer a contactless solution to our supporters certainly contributed to this year’s success.”The full results of this year’s Movember campaign will be announced in April 2020. We know Londoners are passionate about ending homelessness – last year we raised nearly £130k for homelessness charities via @LondonTap donations. This winter I’m proud to say that we’ll have 100 locations where you can donate £3 with your contactless card. #HelpLondonsHomeless pic.twitter.com/TUAcScuHGe— Mayor of London (@MayorofLondon) December 17, 2019TAP London expands to 100 donation pointsTAP London has reached 100 contactless donation points this winter.After last year’s fundraising campaign, which raised nearly £250,000, the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is again calling on Londoners to give generously to help the city’s homeless.TAP London donation points, which allow Londoners to donate £3 using contactless credit or debit cards, have already raised £130,000 for homeless charities and will now be appearing in more than 100 locations over the course of the winter.New TAP London locations include Rekorderlig Cider Lodge, Skylight ice skating rink, Fulham Winterland, and Westfield London in Shepherd’s Bush, which sees up to one million people visit each week over the Christmas period.Donations can also be made online through GoFundMe, and will be split evenly between the members of the London Homeless Collective (formerly known as the London Homeless Charities Group) – a coalition of 29 charities working with homeless people across the capital.Katie Whitlock, Co-Founder, TAP London said:“TAP London gives people an easy and impactful way to tackle homelessness. In just twelve months, over £130,000 has been raised in £3 taps from 40,000 Londoners. It would take seven Royal Albert Halls at full capacity to seat all of our donors, or five hundred double decker buses.“We are delighted to be partnering with Mayor of London for a second year, and to continue supporting the London Homelessness Collective. By working together, we are all helping to improve the difficult lives of many. We are incredibly grateful to everybody who has participated so far.” Tagged with: contactless This year’s Movember raised a record number of contactless donations, while TAP London has expanded to 100 contactless donation points for this winter’s campaign, and Nationwide Building Society has joined forces with Purple Pot to encourage its employees to give to charity partner Shelter.

Thank you for helping change the face of men’s health. pic.twitter.com/aO4rVKgppR Advertisement We’re delighted to be working with @AskNationwide who have been supporting @Shelter this Christmas using our contactless donation devices.If your company is looking to raise more money for your chosen charity next year – get in touch!#charitydonations #fundraising pic.twitter.com/kdDYhppgun— PurplePot (@PurplePot_) December 17, 2019Nationwide Building Society partners with Purple Pot to raise funds for ShelterNationwide Building Society has been fundraising for Shelter this Christmas by collecting contactless donations.Nationwide Building Society is working with contactless donation provider Purple Pot this month to support its Christmas fundraising campaign for its long-term partner charity Shelter.Purple Pot has provided ten of its portable, plug and play contactless donation units to various Nationwide branches and administration sites around the UK, with organised fundraising initiatives encouraging the Society’s employees and members to donate to Shelter with a tap of their payment cards or smart phones.The money raised during the festive period will flow through the payment terminals provided for Purple Pot by PayaCharity and be paid to Shelter via Charities Trust. Purple Pot launched earlier this year, specifically to help organisations and workforces raise more money for their nominated charities through contactless units placed at offices, workplaces and business events. The organisation acts as the “client” for the system, so that charities do not need to pay out any money to benefit from donations they get through the Purple Pots.Nationwide spokesperson, Richard Martin, Social Investment Manager said:“The feedback we have had for the Purple Pots has been absolutely fantastic. They’re so easy to use and have undoubtedly allowed us to take more donations through the use of contactless technology.”Purple Pot founder and Director Martin Loat commented:“We are thrilled that our idea of making it easy for corporates organisations to raise money for charities using contactless is paying off. It’s a big endorsement of our model to have a financial institution such as Nationwide use Purple Pot to raise money for Shelter. They join other early adopters such as James Dyson Foundation, Securitas, Charles Russell Speechlys, WeWork and advertising company Havas, with charities large and small, including Mind, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Wooden Spoon, Blesma and New Horizons Youth Centre.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
