Persimmon’s underlying pre-tax profit for the six months to July was £39.4m, up from a loss of £16.7m in the same period last year. Revenue rose 27 per cent to £776.6m, thanks in part to a 16 per cent rise in sales.The rise in house prices has also aided the company’s figures, with its average selling price rising 8.6 per cent on last year to almost £169,000. Farley said just three per cent of this was due to underlying growth in house values, with the rest coming from a shift to more traditional homes after several years where cheaper apartments dominated. “We were pushed by planning permission into building more flats than we would have preferred to in previous years,” said Farley. “Now we are getting broader planning permissions granted, which is great news as people prefer to live in houses.” The firm has reinstated its interim dividend, paying out 3p per share. “Whereas Bovis talked about maybe reinstating the dividend if conditions continue, Persimmon has gone one step further and re-instated the interim dividend, which in our mind is a clear sign of confidence.” said Anthony Codling at JP Morgan.Shares closed 0.4 per cent at 348.1p, struggling to pick up from a 15-month low on Monday. Sentiment in property firms remains low following reports of a 27 per cent fall in home sales in the US yesterday. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite HeraldTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading Blvd KCS-content center_img Persimmon to pay dividend on sales rise whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more

Stephanie Spellers, the presiding bishop’s canon for evangelism, reconciliation and creation care, told Episcopal News Service in an email. “Together, we’ll find new ways to support each other, live what we’ve promised, and tend our fragile and beautiful home. That’s what it means to be the Jesus Movement.”(Update: By midday April 24, the total had risen to 1,064 with more pledges still coming in.)“It’s not too late to share the ways you’re foster loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with the Earth,” a post on the church’s Facebook page said on April 23 in announcing the church had met its pledge goal. The total had steadily climbed all day April 22, Earth Day, as the church posted updates on social media and encouraged participation.A celebration is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. ET April 28 at Washington National Cathedral. The Interfaith Celebration of Creation will include a blessing of all the pledges submitted during the recent campaign. Details, including how to watch the event online, can be found here.The pledge campaign launched March 29 with the message that even small steps can make a difference in caring for God’s creation. Episcopalians were invited to use the church’s online form to identify the ways they planned to be better caretakers of the Earth. That form is still active, and those who haven’t take the pledge yet can do so here.General Convention in 2015 identified creation care as one of the church’s three top priorities, along with racial reconciliation and evangelism. In 2018, General Convention passed 19 environmental resolutions, including support for a national carbon tax, carbon offsets for church-related travel, ocean health and Episcopalians’ continued participation in the Paris Agreement.The online Pledge to Care for Creation features three parts, representing the Christian call to develop a “loving, liberating, life-giving relationship with God.”Participants are asked to submit one example under “Loving” for sharing the love of God’s creation, a second example under “Liberating” for standing with people being harmed by environmental injustice, and a final example under “Life-Giving” of individual actions they intend to take. Some examples include changing eating habits, increasing use of renewable energy and sharing related information with one’s congregation.Those making pledges also were encouraged to learn about the Diocese of California’s new “Carbon Tracker,” which allows users to measure and track their carbon footprint. And they can share videos, photos or messages about taking the pledge to social media and tag the posts with the hashtag #creationpledge.

A conscious decision was made to root the design of the house in the regional, west coast vernacular pioneered by architects such as Ron Thom andArthur Erickson, beginning in the 1950s. The stylei s characterized by post-and beam-construction with exposed timber structural members, extensive glazing, open floor plans, interior-exterior links, wood finishes, flat roofs, orientation to views and a delicate balance with the natural setting. Save this picture!© Ivan Hunter These elements were carefully integrated to define a new and innovative vision of regional architecture. The design of this private residence responds to the clients’ desire for a “modern log cabin” on a precious piece of oceanfront property. They were torn between two ideals: on the one hand the rustic Canadian log cabin and on the other the modernist glass house. Through the use of expressive structure, expanses of glass, and a minimal material palette, the project took this challenge as its fundamental concept, striving to reconcile the rustic with the modern in form, materiality, and organization. Save this picture!© Ivan HunterThe house has been designed in the form of a bridge, creating a minimal footprint and achieving a high level of environmental performance on the site, while allowing native grasses and flora to grow underneath. Working with the topography, the house is defined in two parts—a solid stone base sunk into the land, referencing the existing rock outcrops on the site, and a light timber “bridge” resting on the stone. With a tranquil internal courtyard protected from the prevailing southeast winds, the strong horizontals of the heavy timbers reference the horizon, and transparency on the ocean side opens the full house to stunning panoramic views of the sea.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAn Interview with Magda Mostafa: Pioneer in Autism DesignArticles’London As It Could Be Now’: Reconnecting Londoners with the Tidal ThamesArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Ivan Hunter+ 30 Share Photographs Gulf Islands Residence / RUFprojectSave this projectSaveGulf Islands Residence / RUFproject 2011 Canada CopyAbout this officeRUFprojectOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesCanadaPublished on October 08, 2013Cite: “Gulf Islands Residence / RUFproject” 08 Oct 2013.

Funeral directors to encourage online giving to boost Gift Aid

first_img The National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) has launched a campaign to encourage more people attending funerals to make charitable donations online rather than cash donations. This will help increase the value of those donations to charities through Gift Aid.The Association estimates that each year charities miss out on more than £25 million because donations at funerals are usually anonymously made in cash and funeral directors can not claim Gift Aid for charities.The GiftAid 25 campaign is being carried out in association with online giving site JustGiving, Memory Giving, Friends and Relations and EMS Internet.  Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Howard Lake | 13 August 2013 | News Funeral directors to encourage online giving to boost Gift Aid About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The NAFD, which has 3,700 funeral firm members, estimates that collecting and processing cash charitable donations currently costs the average funeral directors around £2,000 a year.Alan Slater, chief executive officer of the NAFD explained: “By launching the ‘GiftAid 25’ campaign we are not only helping funeral directors to provide an improved, added value service to their clients at a difficult time but we are also helping to support local communities by ensuring more money is given to well-deserving charities.”JustGiving has developed a new platform specifically for funeral directors to process donations online and ensure that charities can, where possible, reclaim Gift Aid. Liz Bettles of Green Willow Funerals, based in Wales, has used the new online system. She says that, as a result, Green Willow Funerals have raised over £20,000 for local and national charities, almost £5,000 which was Gift Aid. This is money that would not have been recovered if the donations had been in cash.last_img read more

Venezuela, Trump and the Democrats

first_imgA rare moment of public truth occurred in Trump’s Feb. 4 vile State of the Union speech when the two U.S. parties representing the ruling class — apparently hostile to each other on many other issues — came together in unity. As the Feb. 5 New York Times reported: “In one of the night’s few bipartisan moments, Republicans and Democrats stood to applaud Mr. [Juan] Guaidó,” whom Trump introduced as “the president of Venezuela.”This was a night when Democrats had a green light from their leaders to boo the impeached but acquitted Trump, and when “Squad” members either stayed away or walked out. After the State of the Union, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even ripped up a printed copy of the speech in Trump’s face.But at Trump’s introduction of Guaidó, most Democrats stood up and applauded for the self-appointed Venezuelan non-leader.If any new lesson was needed to show that, yes, the Democratic Party leaders represent vicious and oppressive U.S. imperialism, there was the proof.The irony is that, while the Venezuelan traitor Guaidó has the backing of the White House, the State Department, the CIA — and the Democratic Party leadership —  he has virtually no support in Venezuela, not even within the Venezuelan right wing.Guaidó was little known outside of his local district a year ago when, with the encouragement of Trump, Mike Pence and other U.S. imperialist gangsters, he acquired sufficient arrogance to appoint himself president of Venezuela. During the year, with U.S. backing, he attempted to overthrow the elected Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro no less than five times.Each time Guaidó failed because he had backing only from outside Venezuela. Meanwhile the Bolivarian revolutionary government in Caracas, led by Maduro, had the loyalty of the Venezuelan people in general, even after years of the strict U.S. economic blockade. The government also had the loyalty of the armed forces and had mobilized and trained a popular militia.Guaidó’s flops lost him whatever backing he had a year ago from the Venezuelan capitalists. In a vote in the Venezuelan National Assembly this January, the various rightist, anti-revolutionary parties actually voted to depose Guaidó and replace him as head of the Assembly.But, useless as Guaidó might be as a political leader, he still poses a threat to Venezuelans because he has the backing of Washington and other reactionary capitals in Latin America and Europe.That means anti-imperialist, anti-war and any progressive people in the United States have a duty to defend the existing Venezuelan government.There is an opportunity now in the United States to defend Venezuela by defending the Venezuela Embassy Protectors. They are political activists who occupied the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington last spring in solidarity with the Venezuelan people. They were able to delay the embassy takeover by Guaidó’s gang.Four of the protectors — Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers, Adriene Pine and David Paul — each face a year in prison and $100,000 fines for their courageous legal actions. Their trial began Feb. 11 in Washington. Workers World encourages all who can to go to court to support them.For more information about how to help defend the protectors, see defendembassyprotectors.org.
