The trade deficit fell to £4.6bn in August, falling back from a five-year high of £5bn in July.While there was an improvement in the UK’s net trade position – the deficit narrowed to £8.2bn in August compared with £8.7bn in July – exports fell by £0.4bn and imports fell by double that at £0.8bn. The volume of imports was 1.5 per cent lower than a month ago. The UK’s trade deficit with EU countries narrowed to £3.5bn in August, compared with a deficit of £4bn in July. Exports rose by £0.1bn but again imports fell by £0.3bn. The deficit with non-EU countries was £4.7bn in August, unchanged from July. Exports and imports both fell by £0.5bn compared with the previous month, the ONS said. Howard Archer, chief European and UK economist at IHS Global Insight, said signs of net trade “riding to the rescue of the UK economy remain conspicuous by their absence”.Meanwhile David Kern, chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce, said the fall in imports was a serious concern.He added: “With the forthcoming spending cuts set to dampen domestic demand, the UK economy risks declines without significant growth in our net exports.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The Tsunami House is a waterfront home located on a 3,140 square foot site in a high velocity flood (V) zone on the northern end of Camano Island.  The building footprint was limited to a 30’ x 30’ pad. Save this picture!© Lucas HenningThe 887 square foot main living level had to be located 5′ above grade and the foundations had to be designed on pilings capable of withstanding high velocity tsunami wave action. The lower 748 square foot space had to be designed with walls that were able to break away in the event of a storm surge.Save this picture!© Lucas HenningOur design strategy was to locate the main living level 9′ above grade and leave the lower level to be used as a flexible multi use space dubbed the “Flood Room.”  Clear glass overhead doors open up to the waterside deck facing north, and translucent overhead doors open to the entry courtyard facing south, allowing privacy from the road.Save this picture!© Lucas Henning    The depth of the lot is only 50′ deep and required an above ground sand filter drain field that was 10 ‘ wide.  In order to integrate the sand filter into the limited site, it was encased in 3’ high architectural concrete walls and covered with a pervious sun deck on top of the drain field. The drain field/sun deck also acts as a visual barrier between the road and the house providing privacy when all the overhead doors are open.Save this picture!© Lucas HenningA steel stair constructed of bent plate steel leads up to the main living area, which is designed as a great room with the kitchen, living, dining, and a 198 square foot third level sleeping loft facing the water. The master bedroom located adjacent to the great room has sliding translucent doors that let light into the space and open up to the water view.Save this picture!SectionThe exterior materials of the house are durable and low maintenance.  The architectural concrete columns are left exposed and the exterior siding is a mixture of composite and galvanized standing seam panels and aluminum windows.  The lower level floor is polished concrete with radiant in floor heat and the ceilings are covered with western red cedar to add warmth to the otherwise industrial feeling of the lower level.  Save this picture!© Lucas HenningThe upper level is more refined with porcelain tiles on the floor, western red cedar on the ceiling and a sculptured “wave” plaster panel and milled finished steel trim surrounding the fireplace. The interior ship ladder and loft railings are mill finish steel throughout.

Right to information threatened by certain provisions in access to information law

first_img News PeruAmericas Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites to go further News PeruAmericas December 4, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has expressed concern over a number of provisions in the Transparency and Access to Public Information Law, which came into effect on 3 August 2002. The organisation fears that the imposed conditions could infringe on the right to information and limit press freedom. “It would be a shame if the undeniable advance the law represents, in terms of the public’s role in overseeing government functions, is reduced to next to nothing by certain provisions,” Reporters Without Borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard said in a letter to Congress President Carlos Ferrero Costa. Ménard lamented the fact that the law does not define what will be considered a “state secret”, but rather assigns this task to the Ministers’ Council. Reporters Without Borders asked Ferrero Costa to correct this by amending the law.The Transparency and Access to Public Information Law was unanimously approved by Congress on 10 July and came into effect on 3 August. According to Article 15 of the law, for the next five years at least, the Executive is to determine what is classified as “secret” information, “via a decision adopted by the majority of members of the Ministers’ Council”. The Peruvian Press Council (Consejo de la Prensa Peruana, CPP) had proposed that the courts have the last word on this matter. In a 6 August press release, the CPP stated that the law is an affront to “citizens’ right to information and (legitimises) the culture of secrecy in Peru.” Moreover, the CPP lamented the fact that that while the law defends the right to privacy, it does not specify that in some cases public interest should take precedence over this right.The CPP, together with the Congress vice-president and a number of members of parliament, is preparing to submit a request suggesting a number of amendments to the law.

No autism unit for Limerick

Autism diagnoses are on the increase in Limerick just as they are in Dublin and elsewhere. Why is Limerick being discriminated against?”.In answer to a question from Deputy O’Dea, the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) – an independent agency with responsibility for processing applications from primary and post primary schools, – said it has no power to force schools to operate such units.“The NCSE was engaged with 2 schools in the area to open classes for the 12/13 school year but the classes will not be going ahead. It is important to reiterate however that the NCSE are not currently aware of any children requiring a placement,” Deputy O’Dea was told.“To say there are no children requiring a place in a special unit in a mainstream school is rubbish. I have parents who have contacted me about this very issue. I cannot see how the NCSE has come to this conclusion. There are more children being diagnosed every day and we need these classes in Limerick,” the Deputy said.via No autism unit for Limerick | Limerick Post Newswrite.

Synagogue shooting survivor disguised herself as clothing

first_imgJeff Swensen/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) — Audrey Glickman was leading an early morning service inside Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue when gunfire broke out Saturday.As a gunman carried out an anti-Semitic mass shooting inside the house of worship, Glickman and the others with her ran and hid.Still holding their prayer books and wearing their prayer shawls, they ensconced themselves in a room with a window in the door, Glickman told ABC Pittsburgh affiliate WTAE.“We were trying to disguise ourselves as, as bags of clothing in a room of bags of clothing,” she told WTAE. “We wanted him not to have a reason to come in.”“We heard the gunfire and we heard the sirens and we didn’t come out until both seemed to have stopped,” Glickman told WTAE.Eleven members of the Tree of Life synagogue were killed in the massacre.“We ran and we hid and then we escaped with our lives,” Glickman said. “But we lost people — people who were part of the fabric of not only our congregation but our community. These are people who would do anything for anybody. People who come early to a service are the kind of people who are the kindest, most generous.”“We have to stop teaching hate,” she stressed. “You’re taught to hate and I don’t know why we do this. And in fact, we Jews teach our children that they’re going to be hated. In every generation, there’s somebody who will hate. And you have to deal with it and you have to move on.”     Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
