UK exports up, but deficit widens

first_img The UK’s trade deficit was slightly up in October, increasing to £3.9bn from £3.8bn in September. However, export levels for recent months were revised upwards, improving the balance of trade. September’s trade deficit was revised down from a previous estimate of £4.6bn, due to improved data on exports. “The widening of the deficit was largely due to stronger growth in imports, which is not necessarily a bad thing,” said Andrew Goodwin, senior economist at the Ernst and Young Item Club. Exports increased by £1.5bn between September and October, yet imports also jumped, by £1.1bn. In the three months to October, exports to China increased by 38.6 per cent on the previous year, as firms looked towards emerging economies in the east. And services exports are on the rise, increasing by the fourth month in a row. “The trade-led recovery certainly appears to be on track,” said Goodwin.

The banks also cut costs and saw the quality of their mortgage books improve, with customers making significant progress on paying back their loans.The “bad bank” recovery is an ironic counterpart to the £232.4m in underlying losses reported by the Northern Rock “good bank” for last year.UKAR’s £1.1bn repayment of government money makes only an incremental dent on the total £48.7bn loan, with B&B failing to pay back any of its £27bn credit.But B&B has benefited from borrowers bearing down on their late mortgage payments. The number of mortgages in arrears on its books fell 32 per cent to 13,096 and the number of houses in its possession dropped from 962 to 623.At Northern Rock Asset Management (NRAM), which consists of what were thought to be the most toxic parts of Northern Rock, mortgage arrears rose by three per cent, but this marked a substantial slowdown in late payments on 2009, when the number in arrears jumped by 18 per cent. It also cut down the number of houses it owns from 1,984 to 2,061. Despite the improvement, however, UKAR chief executive Richard Banks warned that 2011 could prove more difficult: “The uncertain economic environment, increases in taxes, inflation and unemployment will, inevitably, impact our customers and results.”Banks reiterated UKAR’s focus on running down the original £110bn balance sheet of the two banks. Northern Rock Asset Management’s balance sheet fell by £3bn to £11.3bn last year, while B&B reduced its assets from £6.3bn to £5.7bn. Underlying profits at the banks, which are still run as separate entities, were £200.1m at B&B and £277.4m at Northern Rock Asset Management. center_img Share whatsapp More From Our Partners Mark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Five things we learned in world rugby in January

first_imgStill got it: Matt Giteau is still, pound for pound, one of the world’s best players (Pic Action Images)His footwork, running angles and distribution are immaculate and have elevated him to the undisputed puppet master of Toulon and the Top 14 – in fact he’s more than the puppet master he is Jim Henson. Whilst we all understand the desire and need to keep domestic players in domestic leagues, preventing Giteau from playing at the World Cup is real loss for rugby. If I could release one player from their test nation’s restrictions on selecting overseas players, Giteau would get the vote every time.Feeling sorry for Stuart LancasterIt is rare to hear a Welshman sympathising with English rugby. This paragraph alone could see me wrapped in gaffa tape and frog-marched to the English border. But it is difficult not to empathise with Lancaster and the injuries that are blighting his Six Nations and World Cup preparations. Excluding the All Blacks, no team in the game could cope with losing so many first team players. Currently the list stands at between ten and twelve players – depending on the daily fitness updates. Even by rugby’s standards this is an extraordinary injury list. This is the type of mass injuring that unfolds on GTA 5 after a rampage with a baseball bat.Problem solver: Stuart Lancaster has a glut of injuries ahead of the Wales game (Pic Action Images)Even without an injury list the England coach had a number of combinations that were still very much undecided -particularly in the centres. Losing Brad Barritt, Luther Burrell, Kyle Eastmond and Manu Tuilagi, for varying periods, isn’t going to help that issue. Add Owen Farrell’s lengthy lay off to that list and Lancaster could be playing the entire Six Nations with a new 10/12/13 axis for each game. Stuart Lancaster will learn a lot about his squad during the next few weeks.Is rugby clothing antiquated?Over the past decade, rugby has become a genuinely professional game. The improvements in administration, strength and conditioning, and player welfare are staggering. Yet for some reason the clothing that players wear on the field hasn’t really changed during the last 80 years. Yes, the shirts are more aerodynamic and we now have grip strips and compression layers etc. However, it is strange that players essentially wear the same clothing during May and they do in the middle of January. The temperature differential between the recent European fixtures played in January and the upcoming World Cup warm up fixtures could be 12-15 degrees Celsius – yet players still stroll out in shorts, socks and a jersey for both. Final walk: Adam Jones’ Wales career finished prematurely in most eyes Parky: Rugby players wear the same clothing whatever the temperature (Pic Action Images)Kelly Slater, the surfer, doesn’t wear the same clothing at Pipeline as he does at Mavericks. Professional golfers don’t wear the same clothing in the winter as the summer – so why do rugby players? As any back will tell you, waiting around for five scrum resets can be a long, cold grind where the extremities, particularly the fingers, can become numb. Yet 10 seconds later they will be expected to catch a zipped spiral pass with fingers that are as brittle as a Cadbury’s flake. It would be interesting to see if the ‘heat pads’ used by professional golfers could be slotted into the back pockets of players shorts – allowing them a place to keep their hands warm and malleable during long breaks in play. Just a thought.Click here March 2015 to find out what’s in the March edition of Rugby World magazine – in shops now! Adam Jones retiresJanuary saw Adam Jones retire from test rugby and take his place alongside the grandees of Welsh rugby. He has had a fine career, featuring 95 caps for Wales and five for the British & Irish Lions. But whilst Jones’ caps are impressive his career can’t simply be measured in numbers. ‘Bomb’ introduced genuine stability to Wales’ set piece and ended a decade during which the Welsh scrum had been regarded, globally, as a weakness.For eight years Adam Jones WAS the Welsh scrum and delivered a solidity of platform usually reserved for structures that sit amidst the North Sea. All three of Wales’ recent Grand Slams were built around the Welsh tight head and his scrummaging allowed a generation of Welsh backs and backrow forwards to flourish. This week Warren Gatland said that Jones’ retirement had come as a surprise. Although I’d imagine that Jones’ was more surprised when he found that the third choice tight head at his club was selected ahead of him for the Welsh squad. A baffling selection that ended a superb career.Commercial and political pressure is hurting Sam Burgess’ developmentJanuary revealed exactly how much pressure Sam Burgess is under since his move from the NRL. Burgess is one of those unfortunate victims of professional sport where the commercial/ political pressure facing a player is as extreme as the playing pressure. The responsibility on his shoulders is massive, and exceeds anything that he can ‘military press’ in the gym. Despite a slow start to his union career, which is to be expected considering he has never played it before, an underlying commercial subtext means that Burgess has been fast tracked through union at a pace that simply doesn’t make sense.Learning curve: Sam Burgess still has some way to go in Union (Pic Action Images)Burgess’ progression is beyond ‘fast tracking’ and is verging on ‘Millennium Falcon’ tracking. 15 years ago code jumpers had a season in which to learn the game and would slowly move from the reserves into the first team and then to test level – if good enough. Sam Burgess however has gone straight into Bath’s first team, into the England Saxons’ squad and is now going to train with the full England squad – after a matter of months. Bath and England have a lot invested in Burgess. Let’s hope he doesn’t become the next Benji Marshall.England are missing out on Armitage. World rugby is missing out on GiteauIn the UK, Steffon Armitage receives the headlines for his exclusion from test rugby due to playing outside his domestic league – he’s made a few other headlines in January too… However it is the exclusion of Matt Giteau, from the Wallabies team, which is more detrimental to rugby. Giteau, when injury free, is arguably the best player in the world. Although you’ll rarely hear his name mentioned in that context, as without test status many simply forget that he exists.center_img The month of January threw up a number of talking points, none bigger than Adam Jones’ retirement, Sam Burgess’ progression and a bonafide England injury crisis LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Situated at a transitional node in the midst of scattered new developments with a high-end residential area to the north, commercial area to the south, Cornerstone 1-532 projects the character of the site with a monolithic, continuous, and curved surface along the adjacent streets. The building quietly sits in as a neutral backdrop to the diverse textures of the surroundings. Cornerstone 1-532 is a four-story mixed-use building with individual program per floor stacked vertically; commercial space on the first floor and artist studio/residence on the other floors.Save this picture!© Kyung Sub ShinSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kyung Sub ShinDespite the limited site area of 165 m² with 40% lot coverage ratio, the site bestowed with an advantage of a corner lot. The west and the south side of the site facing the street adopt a single curved facade to minimize the segmentation and to maximize the length of the facade surface. This creates a building mass larger than life, allowing a monolithic visual impact as a whole.Save this picture!© Kyung Sub ShinThe first floor is framed by an extruded geometry of the pentagonal site’s corner. This alien geometry on the curved facade represents the shape of the site, and the insertion of this frame to the full-height surface creates an interesting contrast. Different use of materials emphasizes the contrast between the two gestures. The curved surface is an aggregation of bricks, whereas exposed concrete creates the frame with curved glass fit in. This concrete frame also elongates towards the north boundary of the site functioning as canopy along the west side of the site.Save this picture!West and South ElevationsThe level difference between the Southeast and the Northwest points of the site by nearly one floor plays another key role to the character of the building. Raising the first floor by half level result in two separate entrance to the first and basement floors. From apart, a single volume shows a monolithic gesture like a stone placed on asphalt street, which represents a calmness to the unanticipated events around and harmonizes the variety. But as approaching, the building speaks up through the transparent glass frame.Save this picture!© Kyung Sub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessLubango Centre / PROMONTORIOSelected ProjectsBeijing Capital Museum / AREPSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Seoul, South KoreaLocation to be used only as a reference.
