Segro posts a rise in its property value as it eyes future industrial development

first_img INDUSTRIAL landlord Segro posted a slight rise in the value of its properties yesterday and aims to restart new developments amid returning interest from potential tenants.Segro, which has about two-thirds of its properties in the UK and the rest across continental Europe, said its portfolio value grew 1.4 per cent in the first half, with a 2.5 per cent rise in the UK offsetting a 1.4 per cent drop on the continent.The group said its adjusted net asset value per share edged up to 366p at the end of June 2010, from 362p at the end of December 2009, while net rental income rose 11.3 per cent to £144.3m from a year ago.“We’ve seen capital values stabilising on average across continental Europe, but within that Spain and Hungary still struggle,” Segro chief executive Ian Coull said.Segro said it is receiving interest from prospective tenants, such as data centres, manufacturers, and companies seeking alternative office space, prompting it to restart its development schemes. The new developments, to be built on Segro’s existing landbank, is expected to add 155,000 square metres of space and involve £145m of capital expenditure, to be paid for with existing credit facilities, the company said.It agreed to £271m of new and extended bank facilities in the first half.

A report chaired by former trade minister Lord Davies of Abersoch (pictured) will not recommend a state-imposed quota system to help break up the male dominance of UK companies when it reveals its findings on 24 February, a senior committee member confirmed yesterday. The report’s authors, tasked by business secretary Vince Cable with boosting the number of women taking directorships, will instead call on companies to do more on a voluntary basis to attract more female candidates, with the threat of quotas as a last resort if numbers fail to improve. It is expected to criticise headhunters, chairmen and institutional shareholders for failing to tackle the problem sooner, and push for transparency in firms’ board-level recruitment. But, as one source familiar with the report told City A.M.: “Clearly nobody in the City would prefer to see quotas.”Many business bodies and academics were dismayed by the idea of government-imposed quotas on boardrooms, with several recommending trial directorships and better opportunities further down the corporate ladder instead during a consultation in October. The Institute of Directors said even voluntary quotas are “demeaning for many aspiring and existing female directors”, while the CBI put forward a “comply or explain” model similar to that planned in Australia.Angela Knight, chief executive of the British Bankers’ Association, said yesterday: “There needs to be some positive encouragement for women, but quotas don’t necessarily lead to the right answer.”There were 135 female directors in FTSE 100 companies during 2010, out of 1,076 directorships, research by Cranfield University showed. The World Economic Forum in Davos tried to impose a 20 per cent quota for female delegates, withholding extra places from companies that sent all-male delegations to the conference in January, but fell short with around 16 per cent. The European Commission is also considering a mandatory target for women on boards, following the introduction of schemes in Norway, France and Spain. Norway is close to its target of 40 per cent after five years under a mandatory quota. whatsapplast_img read more

A home’s liveability begins and ends with its orientation. For this heritage home in the inner western suburb of Lewisham, south-facing living quarters meant the family spent most of their time in cold, dimly lit rooms. Not much fun. But we had a plan, and one that resulted in a doubling of thermal efficiency in this part of the home from 3.2 to 6.4 stars!Save this picture!© Nick BowersWith a growing family, including a four-legged friend, more space and improved connection with the backyard was a must, but thermal performance would be central to improved comfort. To bring in light and warmth, we proposed the demolition of an old addition and a careful redesign of the new. We knew we wanted to maximise budget and impact for the client, so we reduced the number of additional bedrooms (waste not, want not). To balance this, we dedicated a modest first floor addition to a more expansive parents’ bedroom with ensuite.Save this picture!© Nick BowersSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Nick BowersSave this picture!1st floor planBut our key move was to introduce an internal courtyard. We opened the heart of the home to the sun, where strategically placed ecofriendly concrete walls and hydronic heated flooring brought much-needed heat gain to cold zones. New awnings let in winter sun and we specified heavily insulated prefabricated wall and roof panels, and double-glazed windows, to help maintain comfortable indoor temperatures.Save this picture!© Nick BowersThe kitchen, dining and living are now warm in every sense.Reclaimed spotted gum flooring from the old addition we repurposed in cupboard faces and in a timber-lined ceiling above the kitchen. Our gorgeous,cantilevered stair detail adds a sculptural element alongside the courtyard, but it also lets in beautiful morning sun, warming breakfasters’ backs as they sit at the kitchen bench.Save this picture!© Nick BowersBricks from the old kitchen were repurposed as another strategic thermal mass wall in thebackyard. This doubles as a screen for a 1400L tank that supplies ample rainwater for the newly landscaped garden.A horticulturalist captured the clients’ love of Australian native plantshere in a design that promotes birdlife and other local fauna. The theme continues into the internal courtyard where the blackened trunks of the iconic Xanthorrhoeagrass trees echo our choice of blackened timber cladding.Save this picture!© Nick BowersOf course the lesson in all of this is eco friendly architecture and heritage homes are the perfect bedfellows. And The Suntrap is one lovely, warm bed.Project gallerySee allShow lessBIN61 / TACK architectsSelected ProjectsWhat Will Urban Planning be in 2052?Articles Share “COPY” Year: last_img read more

Quite rightly he puts the Internet it context. “While donors, supporters and the public at large will clearly make use of the net in growing proportions, from a fundraising perspective it surely represents just one further communication mechanism at our disposal.”However, his expectations are low. “For most of us the Web is unlikely to ‘transform’ our fundraising business and is perhaps best viewed as some form of interactive electronic magazine.”Subscribe to Professional Fundraising.

Number of citizen journalists killed and arrested rises daily

first_img February 3, 2021 Find out more Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law March 8, 2021 Find out more News Suhaib Dib was the victim of a targeted killing by the security forces in the Damascus suburb of Al-Meliha on 4 July. Although still a secondary school student, he was one of the city’s most energetic activists, and was always circulating news reports and content about the uprising and the government crackdown.Omar Al-Ghantawi, 19, was killed by a sniper while filming the shelling of the districts of Jobar and Al-Sultaniyeh in Homs on 21 June. He had given up his job as a mobile phone technician in order to cover the revolution and had shot hundreds of photos and videos documenting the Assad regime’s atrocities.Ghantawi was previously shot and wounded in the chest by a sniper after tearing down a poster of the late President Hafez Al-Assad, the father of the current dictator, Bashar Al-Assad, in the district of Baba Amr. After being confined to bed for three months, he had resumed filming as soon as he recovered.Reporters Without Borders has been able to confirm that Ghias Khaled Al-Hmouria was shot dead while filming an operation by the rebel Free Syrian Army in the Damascus suburb of Douma on 25 June.The deaths of citizen journalist Mohamed Hamdo Hallaq during the shelling of Azaz, a town to the north of Aleppo, on 2 July and citizen journalist Samer Khalil Al-Sataleh during the shelling of Douma on 28 July have also been confirmed but Reporters Without Borders has not yet been able to establish the exact circumstances.ReleaseReporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Abderahman Matar, a reporter for the pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat, was released on 9 July after being held for a month. Anti-government sources said he was arrested because of his coverage. He was reportedly accused of publishing false information, undermining national sentiment, attacking the government’s image and participating in unauthorized demonstrations.Matar’s release should not eclipse the fact that dozens of other professional and citizen journalists continue to languish in Syrian jails. They include the blogger Hussein Ghreir, who was arrested along with 15 other activists during a raid on the Damascus-based Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression on 18 February.According to Front Line Defenders, he recently began a hunger strike in protest against the fact that the authorities continue to hold him incommunicado.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the immediate and unconditional release of all the professional and citizen journalists held in Syria and points out that the Syrian authorities undertook to release all political detainees under Kofi Annan’s peace plan.———————————————–07.07.2012 – At least seven more citizen journalists killed since late MayReporters Without Borders is appalled to learn that five other Syrian citizens have been killed in the couse of pursuing journalistic activities since late May. They are:- Wael Omar Bard, who was shot dead in the northern city of Jarjanaz on 26 June.- Hamza Mahmoud Othman, who was shot by a sniper in the central city of Homs on 21 June.- Bassim Barakat Darwish, who was injured during an air raid in the northern town of Rastan on 13 June and died two days later.- Ayham Youssef Al-Hariri, who was fatally injured by a shell in the southern city of Deraa on 13 June.- Abdelhamid Idriss Matar, who was fatally injured by a shot fired from a tank in the central town of Al-Qussair on 31 May.Reporters Without Borders has also learned that two citizen journalist died in detention – Hassan Mohamed Al-Azhari on 17 June and Rami Ismael Iqbal shortly after his arrest on 21 December 2011.For more information about these people and how they died, read our 7 July press release.——————————————————19.06.2012 – Two citizen journalists killed while filming army shellingRead in Arabic / بالعربيةReporters Without Borders condemns the deaths of two citizen journalists, who were killed by government forces in the cities of Homs and Al-Qassir in the past nine days while trying to cover the continuing ruthless crackdown on the Syrian population.“Their names will be added to the grim list of all those who have fallen with their cameras in their hand,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We offer our heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families and we urge the international community to do what is necessary to ensure that the Annan peace plan leads to a ceasefire without delay.” Ahmed Hamada, a 26-year-old cameraman, was fatally shot by a sniper in Homs on 16 June while filming on a street in the district of Bab Amr during heavy shelling and while trying to rescue a fatally-injured friend, Abd Al-Hadi Al-Qoumali (video with sensitive content).Hamada was always patrolling the city’s streets with his camera and had filmed hundreds of videos showing the regular army’s shelling, especially its shelling of the old town and the district of Khaldiyeh.Khaled Al-Bakir, 30, was killed by a shell in Al-Qassir (about 10 km south of Homs), while covering the army’s shelling of the town on 10 June. Also known as Abu Sliman, he used to film the army’s bombardments and atrocities against the civilian population, as well as the street demonstrations held every Friday in Homs. Khaled Al-BakirReporters Without Borders also strongly condemns the targeted shooting of a foreign journalist in the north of the country four days ago.Ahmed Bahaddou, a Belgian freelance cameraman working for the Associated Press, sustained a gunshot injury on 15 June, 13 days after arriving in Syria with two colleagues. He was flown to London on 17 June and is now being treated in a hospital there.————————-05.06.2012 – Citizen journalist arrested nearby RaqqahRead in Arabic / بالعربيةReporters Without Borders is very worried about Ibrahim Hajji Al-Halabi, a citizen journalist also known as Abou Al-Tayeb Al-Souri, who was arrested at dawn on 12 May in Tel-Abyad, near the Turkish border, and was taken to the nearby northern city of Raqqah. Halabi’s fate since then is not known.The police seized his camera, laptop and three memory cards at the time of his arrest. They also searched his home, confiscating another laptop.Civilian detainees are often tortured and it is feared that Halabi has suffered the same fate, if not worse. Reporters Without Borders calls for his immediate release, and for the release of all the professional journalists, citizen journalists and netizens currently detained in Syria.Born in 1981, Halabi is the opposition spokesman in the northeastern province of Al-Hasakah and a member of the Syrian Revolution General Commission. He often appeared on TV stations describing what was taking place in his region. The Union of Syrian Writers called him “the voice of the revolution in the Jezireh (northeast).”Halabi is from the Raqqah region but he and his family were relocated to Al-Hasakah after their land was expropriated to build the Tabqa Dam on the Euphrates.——————-01.06.2012 – BloodbathRead in Arabic / بالعربية 27.07.2012 – Citizen journalist held since her arrest in Latakia a month agoRead in Arabic / بالعربية Reporters Without Borders has learned that Fatima Khaled Saad, a young citizen journalist based in the port city of Latakia, has been held for the past month following her arrest on 28 June.“We constantly discover violations of freedom of information that have been concealed by the regime,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It seems that Saad’s only crime was to have possessed recordings of songs praising the uprising by Syria’s youth. “She has been subjected to a great deal of physical and psychological violence during her arbitrary detention, which must end. We call for the immediate and unconditional release of Saad and all the other journalists and citizen journalists detained in Syria.”Security officials arrested Saad, her father, Khaled Saad, and her brother during a search of their home in 28 June in which they seized her digital camera, memory card and telephone. Her father and brother were released but Fatima Saad was rushed to Latakia military hospital after being mistreated during a lengthy interrogation by intelligence officers.On 17 July, she was transferred to the headquarters of the military intelligence branch in Damascus where, according to some sources, she is being held in Section 291. Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about her present physical condition.The way the regime tends to treat its opponents is grounds for concern about Saad’s fate. It is clear that the nature of her past activities is such that her life could now be in danger.—————-24.07.2012 – State TV presenter kidnappedRead in Arabic / بالعربيةReporters Without Borders is worried about TV presenter Mohamed Sayeed, who was kidnapped from his home in the southwestern Damascus district of Jaydet Artoz on 20 July. His family has received no word of him since then and no one has claimed responsibility for his abduction. He hosts a current affairs programme on the Syrian state TV station.Reporters Without Borders urges Sayeed’s kidnappers to release him and points out that news media and journalists – both professional and citizen journalists – should not be targeted by any of the parties in a war or civil war. Organisation July 27, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Number of citizen journalists killed and arrested rises daily ———–17.07.2012 – Syrian citizen-journalist arrestedRead in Arabic / بالعربيةSyrian security officers have seized citizen-journalist Salim Qabbani, who has played an active role in first-hand reporting on that country’s conflict.Qabbani, 23, was arrested on July 14 while on assignment in Damascus. A member of the Local Coordination Committee in Homs, Qabbani has made regular appearances on news broadcasts, as we can see on this video on Al-Jazeera. He was an important source of news, reporting on the repression and fighting taking place in his city, a centre of the Syrian insurrection.Reporters Without Borders expresses its grave concern for Qabbani’s safety. These concerns also apply to dozens of other citizen-journalists and media professionals who are detained in Syria – a country where security services are notorious for torturing prisoners.———–12.07.2012 – Targeted murders of citizen journalistsRead in Arabic / بالعربيةReporters Without Borders is deeply saddened to learn of the murders of two more citizen journalists. Confirmation has also been received of the deaths of three others, of whom at least one lost his life in the course of journalistic activity.

Shahade studied photography in the United States before returning to Syria at the start of the popular uprising. For the past three months the talented photographer and filmmaker had been covering the clashes in Homs and was one of the principal citizen journalists reporting on, among other things, the shelling of the Baba Amr district in February. His assistant and fellow director, Ahmed Assam, was also killed. Two days earlier, three media activists of the Sham News Network (SNN) were shot dead by government forces in the Khaldieh district of Homs. The circumstances of their deaths are still unclear:- Ammar Mohamed Souhail, director and Khaldieh correspondent for SNN.- Ahmed Adnan Al-Ashlaq, an engineer working for the network.- Laurens Fahmi Al-Naimi, media activist and filmmaker for SNN in Khaldieh. He was also its director of live broadcasting.Reporters Without Borders has also learned of arrests on 27 May of two journalists, Mohamed Omar Al-Khatib and filmmaker Bilal Ahmed Bilal, by air force intelligence in Damascus. Al-Khatib was arrested after being shot and wounded. Reporters Without Borders is concerned about his medial condition. According to our information, Bilal was reported to have been taken from the capital’s Mezzeh airport to Sednaya prison. Both journalists had already been detained by syrian security in the past year.The writer Khaled Khalifa, author of “In Praise of Hatred” published in 2006, was arrested on 25 May while he was attending a funeral and released three days later.In February, he published an open letter to journalists and fellow writers criticizing the Chinese and Russian vetoes of a U.N.

Police were called and certified the journalist’s death, but his body bore no mark of injury and it remains unclear whether he was killed or died accidentally. “We urge the investigators to quickly shed light on this case, not to rule out any lead and to take seriously the possibility he was murdered”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Nigeria is one of the world’s most violent countries towards journalists. Three journalists have been killed there in the past two weeks and many have received death threats. It is about time that the police put an end to the impunity enjoyed by the killers of journalists”.Reporters Without Borders said it noted the statement by police in Lagos on 4 May to do everything possible to ‘solve the mystery of the murders of Nigerian journalists’. The organisation however is looking for concrete steps on the part of the authorities, which have never solved the majority of killings of journalists. Nigeria is ranked 135th out of 175 countries in Reporters Without Borders’ 2009 world press freedom index. Ogbonna Onovo, the Inspector General of the Nigerian police force was included for the first time in the organisation’s list of 40 ‘press freedom predators’ , released on 3 May this year.To find out more: see the previous release .Acting president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, was yesterday sworn in as president replacing President Umaru Yar’Adua, who died the previous day after a long illness.

Underwater Borrower Rate Drops Below 17 Percent

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Home Equity Home Values Underwater Mortgages Zillow 2014-12-18 Brian Honea in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The number of U.S. homeowners who owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth has fallen off by nearly half in the last two years, but third-quarter data shows millions are still close to slipping back under.In a report released this week, property data company Zillow estimated that 8.7 million homeowners living in the nation’s top housing markets were underwater on their mortgage as of the end of the third quarter, putting the country’s negative equity rate at 16.9 percent. The U.S. underwater rate peaked at 31.4 percent in 2012’s first quarter.”The market has made terrific strides since bottoming out in late 2011 and early 2012, with millions of underwater homeowners freed in just the past few years, and millions more set to surface in coming months and years,” said Dr. Stan Humphries, chief economist at Zillow.By the end of Q3 2015, the company expects negative equity will drop further to a rate of 15.2 percent.While improving trends in home values and foreclosures have helped push more homeowners into positive equity positions, many are still barely afloat, possessing too little equity to realistically afford the cost of selling their home and buying a new one. Because they’re essentially locked into their houses, those homeowners are unable to contribute to their local stock of for-sale homes and are stuck in the way of entry-level or move-up buyers.Factoring in that group, Zillow estimates the “effective” negative equity rate is closer to 35 percent.On top of that, most of the improvement in home values has happened in the housing market’s highest price tier, where homeowners are only about one-third as likely to be underwater as those in bottom-tier homes (9.3 percent compared to 27.4 percent).The gap is even greater in some of the nation’s still-struggling markets—like Detroit, where nearly 50 percent of homes valued in the bottom price tier were underwater, while 7.6 percent of the highest-priced homes were upside down.Humphries says those problems are partly a reflection of some of the housing market’s current challenges, including low inventory, rapid value appreciation, and weak sales.”None of these problems will be solved overnight, in large part because negative equity will likely be a part of the housing market for years, and easily into the next decade in some hard-hit areas,” he said. “But we’re moving in the right direction, and time will heal all wounds.” About Author: Brian Honea Underwater Borrower Rate Drops Below 17 Percent Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Home Equity Home Values Underwater Mortgages Zillow Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago December 18, 2014 891 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: HUD Secretary Vows to Make Greatest Use of Allotted Resources in 2015 Next: Fannie Mae Forecasts Economic Growth in 2015 Despite Ending Year On a Low Note The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
