Profits up 60pc at Glencore

first_img Share Profits up 60pc at Glencore KCS-content GLENCORE unveiled a trading update showing a 60 per cent rise in pre-tax profit yesterday, with the results particularly buoyed by rising prices for metals and agricultural products.The privately owned Swiss commodities trader is currently lining up investors for an initial public offering (IPO), with its chief executive Ivan Glasenberg making a major presentation to analysts on Monday and Tuesday in preparation for the float.It is being advised by Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and Credit Suisse, although further banks could be brought on to underwrite the deal, which could be worth up to $60bn. As City A.M. revealed in December, however, a large portion of its shares could be taken to Hong Kong in a dual-listing, rather than staying in London.By the terms of bonds it issued last year, Glencore must either float by 2013 or buy back its debt with a high interest rate.But it is expected to go public sooner rather than later to take advantage of a benign commodities environment: its revenues swelled 36 per cent last year to $145bn, with earnings before interest and taxes of $5.29bn.The firm said that energy commodities trading was disproportionately hit by “an unusually stable price environment characterised by surplus refinery capacity and a weak freight market”. Oil and coal are expected to make a comeback this year, with oil already at two-and-a-half year highs. The weak energy trading was countered by higher volumes in grain due to bad weather in Russia, Ukraine and Australia.Glencore also disclosed that it refinanced its debt to the tune of $10.3bn last year, including the issue of $3bn of long-term bonds and $300m of contingent convertible bonds (coco’s).

What the Six Nations sides have been doing in the fallow week

first_imgFrom the footage and pictures that came from this particular face-off, it looks like these scrums were full-blooded. Afterwards, Jones said: “The boys learnt a number of different things (from the session). They had the superiority early on and we came back well. It was an excellent session for us. They really enjoyed it.”Related: Should Georgia have the chance to gain promotion into the Six Nations?Many teams decided this was the best time to open up sessions to the public. England had one at Twickenham, while Ireland trained against their U20s side at Dubarry Park, the home of Buccaneers RFC in Athlone. What the Six Nations sides have been doing in the fallow weekIt is a Six Nations fallow week. Some of you will be climbing the walls with no Tests this weekend.Teams have been busy, though. England had two training sessions with Georgia. Before their work-outs, on Tuesday and Wednesday, Eddie Jones said his team were delighted to lock horns with “the biggest, ugliest, strongest scrum pack in the world.” It was spotted there that Tadhg Furlong and Iain Henderson were briefly put through their paces, not taking part in the squad session, while James Ryan was not spotted at all. Head coach Joe Schmidt expects all three to make a speedy recovery, though Henderson and Ryan are seen as progressing a little better than Furlong.Related: A Six Nations injury updateScotland also held an open training session away from their usual headquarters. The team headed down to Galashiels, Gregor Townsend’s hometown, to do their run-out. Throwing down: England and Georgia scrum together The match action kicks back into gear next week. And you know there will be plenty more to talk about!center_img What about the French? Well, the word ‘calamity’ springs to mind. In the aftermath of a night out following their loss to Scotland, nine players – including the free-scoring Teddy Thomas – were dropped for “inappropriate behaviour.” The measure is only in place for the game against Italy in Marseille next Friday.Meanwhile, in Italy something entirely more official was happening. Head coach Conor O’Shea was present for a summit between the two Guinness Pro14 franchises and the clubs from Italy’s Eccellenza, to discuss a range of topics. Does any of this whet your appetite for Six Nations action at all? Probably not.If you want brilliant, timeless Six Nations content to enjoy this weekend, why not run out and buy the latest issue of Rugby World magazine, our six Nations special issue?

House in Hamadera / Coo Planning

It is located in a quite residential area where an old station and the tram named hamadera suwanomori remain. The master bought land for this town where memories living since the child were deep. It faces in the north and 4m road and east and west face the neighboring house. Rich green though the Suwanomori Shinto shrine is small a place is produced in the south. It is especially considered that green in the south is felt in the plan.Save this picture!Courtesy of coo planningIt is a space where the light of the sprinkling sun is felt as for a small window and a top light that holds ventilation and ventilation concurrently to achieve a bright space without installing a big from east to west window. It is an address space configuration of the skip floor where height and the material feeling were made the best use of in the maximum. To install the bookshelf using a full wall, and to enjoy the storage of the book that the number of this favorite families will increase in the future with the growth of a small child and the family, it considered it from east to west. Save this picture!Courtesy of coo planningThe space with a little uselessness was borne in mind by assuming the outside Heat insulator by using the pillar, the puncheon, and the groundwork plywood as a bookshelf. Rich green from the Shinto shrine extends from the framed window to the cross in the south. To always feel big green by the distance and the height of each floor, it considers it. The address space configuration to be able to live naturally as much as possible was borne in mind. A natural wind flows to the space by additionally opening and shutting north, south, east, and west and the window installed respectively at the season. Save this picture!Courtesy of coo planningTo obtain it, an open mouth of the first floor in the south considers ventilation according to the situation as windows is piled up up and down, and outside privacy doesn’t worry. The space wrapped in the tree by installing the wooden door of the movability type in the front shedding that the glance from the road is anxious and uniting materials is emphasized. Energies was devoted into union with the lurch plywood such as the floor, the wall, ceilings, and fittings.

Louis Kahn divided spaces into two types: served and servant (where ‘servant’ refers not to domestic staff but to spaces serving other spaces). Marcel Breuer structured a considerable number of his single-family homes into a bi-nuclear scheme. Save this picture!© José HeviaThe pre-existing H-shape of the Tomás home already favoured its spatial organization into two living areas, as in Breuer’s plan: one part to be used for daytime activities – the social area – and the other for night-time functions – the private area. The connecting room was to be a servant space but also given its own character so that, rather than being relegated for use as a mere passageway, it could also function as a living area. The other two rooms would be served spaces.Save this picture!© José HeviaAlthough these two served spaces are almost similar in terms of dimension and geometry, both are defined in completely opposite ways. The public part is clear space while the private section is divided. The former is open to the street and the latter closed off by the inner courtyard of the block. The main space extends outwards via a balcony, while the other area is filtered and separated from outside by a uniform glassed-in veranda where climbing plants partly screen the glass slats that close it off. The balcony acts as a kind of solarium before the living room, dining room and kitchen area. The veranda, however, is like a shade house in front of the dormitories thanks to the plant filter provided by the creepers.Save this picture!© José HeviaDimorphism is the term used in biology for the phenomenon in which two different anatomical aspects appear in the same species. This principle was used to “furnish” the served spaces of the house. In the public zone, it is by means of the free-standing bench in the kitchen. In the bedroom area, the bathroom is set out like one more piece of furniture since it rises from the floor and does not reach up to the joists or the vaulted ceiling.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe bathroom can be understood in Kahn’s language as a servant space since it serves both bedrooms. The same applies to the transversal strip comprised by the vestibule, the toilet and the storage space for household appliances – paved and finished with decorative tiles –which also serves the living-room, dining room and kitchen. Even the servant space connecting the two parts of the house is multiplied by adding a dual-level or, better said, a bi-vertical loft space.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe spatial result of this project is therefore a contrivance whereby opposites, symmetries and balances mediate served and servant spaces. This is a house structured in a bi-nuclear fashion which repeats dualities again and again or, in other words, it brings together in one very small home twofold, different and contrasting spatial characteristics: clear-divided, open-closed, extended-separated, broken up-filtered, above-below. In short, it is a project based on dualism rather than on monism, with Kahn and Bauer as its double references.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse B.A.B.E. / destilatSelected ProjectsThe Berlage Public Events Spring 2014Event Share Architects: LAB, Laboratory for Architecture in Barcelona, Pepe Gascón Area Area of this architecture project Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officePepe GascónOfficeFollowLAB, Laboratory for Architecture in BarcelonaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBarcelonaLABLaboratory for Architecture in BarcelonaSpainPublished on February 18, 2014Cite: “Casa Tomás / LAB, Laboratory for Architecture in Barcelona” 18 Feb 2014.

Detroit hotel workers picket for higher wages

The local has been picketing the nonunion downtown Detroit hotel on a regular basis. Several similar hotels have been targeted for their unwillingness to meet with the union and for their inferior wages and benefits. Union housekeepers typically earn two to four dollars an hour more than what these high-end hotels pay their workers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img
