It caused irritation in the Treasury, which says its austerity plan is working.GOLDMAN’S ASIAN DILEMMA AS REGION HEAD PRESSES TO STAY IN USGoldman Sachs is seeking an executive to run its day-to-day operations in Asia even as the bank struggles to find a new role in its New York headquarters for the region’s chairman, Michael Evans.

There are plenty of UK shares on my Stocks and Shares ISA list this Friday the 13th. Should I buy these dirt-cheap FTSE 100 dividend stocks during the current stock market rally though?Steering clear of this UK shareI’m not tempted to snap up mining colossus Rio Tinto and its big dividend yields today. Even a rocketing iron ore price isn’t enough to tempt me to part with my money.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…Prices of the steelmaking ingredient continue to go gangbusters, thanks in part to production outages in Brazil. Recently, they hit their highest since February 2013. But I’m worried about the long-term outlook for iron ore values as a swathe of new capacity hits the market over the next few years.The market threatens to be swamped with excess material and this could create a big problem for Rio Tinto. The company sources more than three-quarters of underlying earnings from iron ore. So I’m not interested in the FTSE 100 share’s forward P/E ratio of 9 times, or its 7% dividend yield.A better FTSE 100 buyI’d be much happier investing in Polymetal International (LSE: POLY) to get my commodities fix.Like Rio Tinto, this UK share also trades on a low forward earnings multiple, in this case sitting at 11 times. Its 5.5% dividend yield provides plenty for income seekers to get excited about too.I think this FTSE 100 mining giant sits on much safer ground though, as I expect gold prices to remain strong through the medium term at least. This is based on expectations that central banks will keep interest rates low into the 2020s. Additional rounds of quanititative easing wouldn’t do bullion values any harm either!But inflationary concerns aren’t the only probable demand driver for precious metals. Significant macroeconomic and geopolitical issues, like trade wars and Brexit, should also support prices of safe-haven assets looking ahead. The possibility of a prolonged Covid-19 crisis would boost the likes of gold as well.7.8% dividend yields!Vodafone Group (LSE: VOD) is one more UK share I’m considering snapping up this Friday the 13th.This FTSE 100 major also looks cheap from an earnings perspective. City predictions that profits will rise 29% this fiscal year leaves it trading on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) reading of 0.6. Any multiple below 1 is generally considered a bargain. However, Vodafone’s 7.8% forward dividend yield is what really draws the headline.Vodafone is simply a cash machine (it expects to generate €5bn of free cash before spectrum costs this year alone). This — allied with the defensive nature of its operations — means it should keep paying big dividends despite the uncertain macroeconomic outlook.But this FTSE 100 stock is much more than a great near-term dividend pick. Ericsson’s Mobility Report expects worldwide mobile data demand to soar to 164 exabytes (EB) per month by 2025. That compares with 33 EB at the end of 2019. And global telecoms giant Vodafone is well-placed to make monster profits this decade on the back of this trend.last_img read more

Next to the existing 272 apartments, the old substandard ones were removed from the site and 190 new were built in their place. The new buildings location is partly determined by the existing pedestrian paths that continue into the new project; and by the plots gentle slope from north to south. The Village was conceived to have a high quality intimate outdoor space that accompanies each apartment as well as a comfortable interior.Save this picture!Courtesy of 3LHDThe establishment of new communication corridors formed irregular particles on the plot, apartment units were grouped on these green islands. The basic modular element – the accommodation unit – is multiplied and grouped into blocks by spatial variations and rotations. The blocks differ from one another in the color scheme of the materials the building facades are treated with. The apartment units are brought into a spatial correlation by formation of voids and atria between them. In this way, micro sceneries and intimate living spaces were created. Outdoor spaces at the Village are graded from intimate – atria, semi-public – the neighborhood, to the public – paths through the village.Save this picture!Site Plan WideDesign theme was to develop a distinctive architectural language through which objects are related and their affiliation to a block is determined. Consequently, a concept of „unit privacy“ was developed by creating smaller or larger strokes of micro sceneries. The tools for the development of this concept were: the volume design (loggia, atrium, garden, terrace) and the choice of the materials (rough plaster, ceramics, wood, pergolas, vegetation). They were used to form a distinctive color scheme used in the building architecture.Save this picture!Courtesy of 3LHDThe apartment units can have a combination of apartments that come in two different types – two floor ones with a living area, dining area, kitchen, toilet, terrace and garden on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor; and single floor ones with a living area, dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and a terrace. In addition to the apartments, service rooms and maids rooms (disposal of clean and dirty laundry), toilets and installation facilities are located on each plot.Save this picture!DetailAmarin is entirely pedestrian, no cars are allowed on the site, and car parking is provided on the edge of the site. The main walking paths through the Apartment Village are between blocks, from where trails lead to the entrance of each apartment. All trails and pathsareformedfreelyin relation to thenaturalslope of the terrainat the site. The rooftops follow the slope and have a final layer of coarse crushed stone; facades are finished in white plaster and ceramics in the colors of individual blocks. Outdoor terraces are made from wood, with wooden pergolas and privacy is insured by a green wall of plants that grows supported by the terrace construction.The Apartments visual identity and signage and environmental graphics were developed by Lana Cavar and Luka Predragović. As part of the visual identity, Croatian illustrator OKO made the illustrations applied in the interior of the apartments and on the signage. The inspiration for the identity and the illustrations were traditional Istrian costumes and animals specific for Istria: Istrian ox „boškarin“ (Ciprijan), Istrian sheep (Barbara), Istrian donkey (Pepi), redheaded grebe (Vanda), and bee (Keko). The apartments are furnished with „Revolve“ sofa beds by a Croatian manufacturer Kvadra, designed by Numen/ForUse + Bratović&Borovnjak, and ILI_ILI lamps designed by Grupa. The concept of the lighting for Amarin immediately follows the color scheme of the whole Apartments – combinations of lamp shades were put together with the idea of recognition of individual blocks.Project gallerySee allShow lessStavanger Concert Hall / Ratio Arkitekter ASSelected ProjectsShigeru Ban Named Pritzker Laureate for 2014Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Ulica Giosue Carduccia 4, 52210, Rovinj, CroatiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Along with the trend of counter-urbanization, a growing number of city-dwellers intend to build houses in their home villages for the purpose of vocation or retirement. This project is a vocation house designed for a young couple living in the metropolis, who wanted big space for friends and big family gathering.Save this picture!© Liu WenjuanThe site is in the Guanzhong area of Shaanxi. Sited at the back yard of a vernacular dwelling, the massing and the scale of the new structure follows the existing urban fabric of the village; creates a more introversive and intimate open space behind the existing main house. The design of single-pitch roof sloped down to the courtyard was inherited from the local tradition which intend to collect rainwater in the inner courtyards.Save this picture!© Liu WenjuanThe house further integrates into the site through its materials. It preserves the existing red brick courtyard walls as part of the walls of the new house, and adds pediments on top of those walls using grey colored bricks, to differentiate between old and new.The interior space is divided into two levels, the ground floor and the attic, by the deep wood trusses. The ground floor was arranged to be distinguished from the conventional three-bay style. It was sliced into two linear spaces by a continuous wooden shelf – one large main living space and one narrow service space under the attic.Save this picture!© Liu WenjuanThe openings of the shelf respond to windows of outer walls; resulting intriguing relationships between the service space and the main living space, as well as the interior and the exterior. The space of upper attic was divided by the partition that hanged from the ceiling. It was characterized by wood-based skin, in contrast to the white drywall finish of the ground floor. The 2-finishes design also conforms to the material distribution of the exterior walls – lower part and upper part.Save this picture!© Liu WenjuanApplying of Half-timber Frame System enabled the construction to be unfolded in the narrow and limited yard. Meanwhile, it provided much flexibility in the envelope design. The cavity wall not only provides a better thermal performance, but also creates an interesting brick pattern with high windows. Moreover, the increased truss height provides a wide span of space; and the wood-based stressed skin of the trusses strengthens the resistance to lateral force.Save this picture!© Liu WenjuanTo summarize, the project shows high respects to the local lifestyle and construction conventions; and break the limitation of the traditional structure systems and space patterns. By utilizing composite construction system and improving local building techniques, the architects created a unique spatial experience to satisfy the high standard of modern life, which also brought a complex feeling of both freshness and familiarity to the local villagers.Project gallerySee allShow lessUNIQLO Le Marais / WonderwallSelected ProjectsMaster Plan Revealed for Binhai Eco City in TianjinUnbuilt Project Share Area:  80 m² Area:  80 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeZhang DongguangOfficeFollowLiu WenjuanOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionWeinanHousesRefurbishmentChinaPublished on August 31, 2014Cite: “Ban House / Zhang Dongguang + Liu Wenjuan” 31 Aug 2014.

This Aluminium House tackles head on the brief of combining sculptural modern architecture with the everyday requirements of a good ventilation, heat protection, liveable and home. The house is located on a single land plot in suburb of Bangkok, Phutthamonthon Sai3 road, Thailand. The house was designed by Ayutt and Associates design (AAd) for 3 families of the 3 generations : grand parent, Daughters and grand son. The house comprises of 1,500 sq.m. of useable space. There are 5 bedrooms with their own private bathroom, main living space, Asian and Western kitchen, Multi-function space and Support function. The main living space, corridors, swimming pool, terrace and garden were designed as the open plan layout for the visual-linkage for all of the said area. This house revolts the contrasts requirements of any ordinary- house requirements with the demand for an engaging sculptural form architecture.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ayutt and Associates DesignThe house concept was begun with simple idea as stacked boxes. The space is composed of three elements as the solid box, the glass box, and the aluminium box that encloses the central courtyard and swimming pool.  The house becomes a right angle “H” shape to embrace and open the house to landscape. The simplicity of each courtyard distills the experience of nature, garden and water. Every interior space is connected to these exterior and landscape space. The layering of spaces from exterior to interior to courtyard collapses the boundaries between them.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometrySave this picture!Courtesy of Ayutt and Associates DesignAbove the parent’s room downstair, here the volume got a shift towards in and out side with a large window.

Then the aluminium facade was suggested for the design feature. The aluminium facades provide amazing linear texture to buildings and have unlocked an entire new world of exterior aesthetics. AAd created the architectural signatures, but still provide the idea of heat protection. To have the privacy, the Aluminium facade facing the street is almost a blind wall. The rear facade of the house is a solid facade, while the other side to the internal court opens freely towards a large, sunny garden and swimming pool. The windows are large and can be fully opened, like gigantic canvases that frame the landscape. They contribute to the purity of shape. And nothing could disturb it.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ayutt and Associates DesignSave this picture!Courtesy of Ayutt and Associates DesignProject gallerySee allShow lessCan Clariana Cultural Civic Center / BCQ arquitecturaSelected ProjectsIssana Beach House / Chinthaka Wickramage AssociatesSelected Projects Share Save this picture!Courtesy of Ayutt and Associates Design+ 24 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883859/aluminium-house-ayutt-and-associates-design Clipboard Aluminium House / Ayutt and Associates DesignSave this projectSaveAluminium House / Ayutt and Associates Design “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883859/aluminium-house-ayutt-and-associates-design Clipboard “COPY” Area:  1500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img CopyHouses•Khwaeng Sala Thammasop, Thailand ArchDaily Houses Year:  2017 Thailand Aluminium House / Ayutt and Associates Design CopyAbout this officeAyutt and Associates DesignOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKhwaeng Sala ThammasopThailandPublished on November 20, 2017Cite: “Aluminium House / Ayutt and Associates Design” 20 Nov 2017.

Preseason Football Update: First scrimmage offers a mixed bag

Twitter Facebook + posts Facebook Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Linkedin printOne scrimmage is in the books for TCU head coach Gary Patterson and his Horned Frogs, and, as you might expect, practicing for the last seven days straight has begun to wear ever so slightly on the team.“We’re tired, I’m getting too old for this,” Patterson said Friday with a wry smile.When asked how he could be “getting too old” with 78 year-old Bill Snyder having just signed an extension at Kansas State through 2022, he fired back with an trademark Patterson one-liner, “That’s Coach Snyder, he’s tougher than I am.”However, the scrimmage did give Patterson some more clarity on a few different position groups as he said it highlighted “who can block and tackle, as usual in the first scrimmage.”Quarterback CompetitionThe race to replace Kenny Hill is a two-man battle between Hill’s understudy last season, sophomore Shawn Robinson, and University of Pennslyvania transfer Michael Collins. Highly-touted freshman Justin Rogers is still recovering from a knee injury he suffered at the beginning of his final high school season. Both Robinson and Collins impressed Thursday.“Both Shawn and Mike looked good, but Shawn can really get himself out of trouble though,” Patterson said, referring to Robinson’s mobility, a skillset the sophomore from DeSoto utilized to run for a team-high 84 yards in the Horned Frogs’ 27-3 road win against Texas Tech last season. “It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out, but in [the Big 12], if your quarterback is going to run, you better have two. Michael runs a lot better than you think he does.”To his credit, Robinson has slimmed down from weighing 228 lbs.in the spring to about 217 lbs., a weight that Patterson noted has allowed him to “do more things.”“That’s made him where he runs better, has more stamina, and when you’re not tired, you make better decisions,” Patterson said.TCU quarterback Shawn Robinson works through drills in practice. Photo by Cristian AruguetaSoto.At this point, Patterson said he’s been favoring Robinson because he’s been in the TCU system longer, but he also said Saturday’s scrimmage will be quite telling.“I’ll know more tomorrow because all the teaching is done, and it’s more into getting better and reacting more than thinking,” Patterson said.Defensive BackfieldBad news struck the Horned Frog secondary as one of TCU’s top recruits, freshman safety Atanza Vongor, is expected to miss the season with an undisclosed injury.Patterson attempted to see the silver lining in the loss.“It’s one of those things … the great part about having a redshirt,” Patterson said. “Still get involved and do things.”Even without Vongor, Patterson liked what he saw from his safeties.The expected starters at free safety and strong safety respectively are Niko Small and Innis Gaines. Small has returned to practice after being sidelined last week with a minor injury.Gaines, a junior who had a game-sealing interception in last season’s Alamo Bowl has the inside track over senior Ridwan Issahaku, who is still getting back in shape after missing spring practice with an injury.Redshirt freshman Michael Onyemaobi could see snaps at cornerback and safety. Freshmen Ar’Darius Washington and DeMauryon Holmes, as well as sophomore La’Kendrick Van Zandt and redshirt freshman Noah Daniels, have been players who have stood out early on in camp.“Really, Noah has had a great camp, even Onyemaobi is doing great – we moved him back to corner,” Patterson said. “Yoyo (Onyemaobi) has been playing great.”At this point, having a deep stable of defensive backs will be critical for TCU’s success since they’ll face a number of high-flying, Big 12 offenses.“We keep building the depth so you run out somebody in the middle of the season, they’ve already got a little bit of a base,” Patterson said.Offensive LineThe position group with the most turnover is the offensive line, which has to replace four starters. However, the unit is progressing despite a training camp injury to potential starting guard Casey McDermott Vai. Vai also missed all of last season with an injury.“We’ve been pretty happy…our offensive line has come a long, long way, even with our twos on the inside,” Patterson said. “I still think we have work with our two tackles, but Anthony McKinney has made a lot of progress. We weren’t able to [make a lot of progress] in the spring because all of our defensive ends were out. Now, every day you get a chance to work on good, and that helps.”Patterson likes his starting five up front, and he noted that McDermott Vai will likely be ready to play in Week 1 against Southern.Defensive LineThe Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year, TCU senior defensive end Ben Banogu, is a known commodity. Patterson expects younger returning players like defensive tackles Ross Blacklock and Corey Bethley to make big strides in their sophomore seasons.“One of our biggest problems two years ago was we weren’t big enough and couldn’t hold up inside on defense, so even though they’re young, them being able to play is going to be huge as we rotate between five to six guys,” Patterson said.Senior defensive end L.J. Collier will line up across from Banogu in Patterson’s defense, looking to replace the since-graduated Mat Boesen’s 12.5 sacks.“He’s got a chance to have a big year,” Patterson said. “They’re [Banogu and Collier] just different – L.J. is a power rusher, Ben is a speed rusher.”Patterson hopes Collier cutting some weight will allow him to make a larger impact on the game by staying on the field for longer stretches.“He’s only used to playing about 20 plays a game, and the whole thing has been getting him where he can play – last year, he only played third downs,” Patterson said. “Now you see if he can still play on third downs like if he was coming from the sidelines.”Linebacker Ty Summers will also play some defensive end again in this season, a move Patterson likes to save for teams that are a little faster and like to run a lot of read-option plays.Linebacker Ty Summers goes through drills in practice. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.LinebackersPatterson raved about the effect of moving defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow from coaching safeties to now coaching the linebackers.“Linebacker guys, as a general rule, are really front guys, so coverage is a different animal, and when you move a secondary guy to linebacker – and Chad played linebacker in college – so he has that element and he has the coverage element, which really helps linebackers understand principles,” Patterson said. “It takes so much teaching for our safeties, so he has brought that attention to detail to the linebacker position.”Northern Illinois transfer Jawaun Johnson has caught Patterson’s eye, but the head coach made sure to mention some other players that have impressed to this point as well.“Jawaun keeps getting better, really, all of them are,” Patterson said. “Alec Dunham, even the young guys Ben [Wilson] and Jacoby [Simpson]. Chad’s really done a great job bringing those guys along.”Special TeamsJonathan Song has begun the last two years as the starter at kicker, but he has suffered lower leg injuries the last couple of years, which has allowed other players like Ryan Graf, Brandon Hatfield, and Cole Bunce all see time as the placekicker for TCU in the past.“Cole (Bunce) is the starter right now at kicker,” Patterson said.Long-snapper Lucas Gravelle graduated, but Patterson has added a long-term replacement who has met expectations.“But for those of you who have been asking about the long snapper, we got some good news there, as well,” he said. “[Antonio] Ortiz has really emerged – the freshman. He is really fast. Exactly what we thought he was when we recruited him.”TCU kicks off the 2018 football season Saturday, September 1 at 11:00 AM CT against Southern at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
