However, it remains confident that the strength of emerging economies will prevent a double dip recession. The chance of negative growth in the first quarter of 2011, directly after the Vat hike, stands at 50 per cent, with the CEBR forecasting growth of just 0.1 per cent. Show Comments ▼

If you’re building a retirement portfolio, you need stocks that’ll perform well for decades. The businesses you invest in need to deliver reliable long-term growth. I’ve selected two FTSE 100 dividend stocks here which I think will deliver on this requirement.Both shares are on my watchlist of stocks to buy. They’ve both been outstanding performers for many years and have hardly suffered any disruption from coronavirus.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…FTSE 100 dividend stock #1: quality assuredIntertek Group (LSE: ITRK) provides quality assurance services to companies and other organisations all over the world. The firm’s activities cover a huge range of testing, certification and inspection services across many industries.As you can imagine, this is a growing business. I can’t see this changing in my lifetime. In an increasingly technological and connected world, companies, governments and consumers need independent assurance that standards are being met consistently at all times.The group’s half-year results were published last week, giving us a first look at how coronavirus has affected its operations. Although revenue for the first half of 2020 only fell by 8% to £1,331m, there was a larger hit to profits. Intertek’s adjusted pre-tax profit fell by a third to £151.5m.However, the group’s cash generation remained very strong and, even at this difficult time, profit margins remained in double digits.The company expects performance to be better during the second half of the year. Management also believes the pandemic has created new opportunities for medium-term growth.Why I’d buyIntertek’s idea of a bad year would be a good result for many businesses. The group is consistently profitable and has expanded over the years through small, specialist acquisitions. I believe this is a low-risk approach that should continue to work well.The shares currently trade on 28 times 2021 forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of 1.9%. Although this is quite pricey, I think Intertek’s profitability and sustainable growth means the stock will probably continue to beat the market over the long term.If you’re still building your retirement portfolio, I see this FTSE 100 dividend stock as a great buy.FTSE 100 dividend stock #2: essential repeat purchasesAnother company that’s performed well through the pandemic is distribution group Bunzl (LSE: BNZL). This global company provides a huge range of consumable products to businesses and public sector customers.Products sold include food packaging, cleaning products, personal protective equipment and many other such items. The key theme is that it’s all essential and consumable — so customers all make regular repeat purchases.As you might guess, Bunzl has benefited from a surge in demand for cleaning and hygiene-related products this year. In June, the company said it expects sales to have risen by about 6% during the first half of the year. Based on last year’s half-year sales of £4.5bn, that’s more than £270m of extra sales.Like Intertek, Bunzl enjoys strong profitability and good cash generation. Debt levels look comfortable to me and the company has a long, consistent record of growth.As I write, Bunzl shares trade on about 18 times 2021 forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of 2.2%. This is a stock I’d buy today and happily hold forever. I don’t think it will disappoint. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Rev. Pierre Whalon, bishop of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, said from Oslo in a telephone interview with Episcopal News Service.Whalon helped organize the conference and was scheduled to speak during a June 19 dinner. Indigenous people from across Africa, Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Indonesia have joined Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Daoist and Buddhist religious leaders for the June 19-21 launch of the Interfaith Rainforest Initiative aimed at framing rainforest protection in moral terms.The conference is meant to “change minds and hearts and get people working together,” said Whalon. The urgency is clear, he added, from the stories shared by indigenous people living in the rainforest and from satellite images.“Rainforest destruction is not just tearing down all the trees and turning into soy fields. It’s literally ethnic cleansing,” said Whalon. There’s a real moral and spiritual imperative to protecting the rainforest. Conference organizers made sure to give indigenous peoples a chance to share their stories from the front lines, and what they have to say will “curl your hair,” he said.Palm oil plantations; cattle, soy and other crop production, and illegal mining and logging operations are destroying tropical rainforests in South America, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia at high rates. Rainforests are home to indigenous people; provide food, water and income to 1.6 billion people; contain most of the planet’s land-borne biodiversity; help regulate rainfall and temperature globally, regionally and locally, and store billions of tons of carbon, which is essential for curbing global warming.“The world’s rainforests are a stunning example of the life-sustaining beauty of the planet; they are spectacular, vital to life and at grave risk. This meeting represents a tremendously important first step forward for faith communities, who must join First Peoples and commit to rainforests’ health and restoration,” said the Rev. Fletcher Harper, an Episcopal priest based in New Jersey and the executive director of GreenFaith, in a press release.Religious and indigenous leaders from 21 countries will have discussions with forest advocates, climate scientists and human rights experts to develop goals and actions, along with milestones to mark their progress. They expect to follow up with an action plan and a global interfaith rainforest summit in 2018. The group was convened by Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative, Rainforest Foundation Norway and the United Nations Development Program in cooperation with the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University, GreenFaith, the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Religions for Peace, REIL Network and the World Council of Churches.The rainforest initiative is linked to a surge of grassroots action over the last few years in which environmental, climate and indigenous rights issues are being embraced as spiritual imperatives that strike a chord with multiple faiths and traditions. Other leaders of Evangelical Christian and Muslim organizations, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, have stressed the shared human responsibility to protect the planet.“Tropical rainforests occupy a sacred place in many faiths, religions and spiritual traditions,” said Mary Evelyn Tucker, director of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University, in a press release. “Indeed, spiritual reverence for nature and all life can be found across the world’s religions, including among indigenous peoples and other residents of the world’s tropical rainforests. Given what we are hearing from religious and indigenous leaders worldwide, we believe we can create a global movement around this shared vision.”Whalon became involved in the conference’s planning because of previous involvement in roundtable discussions related to the environment and communicating the message of Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment and human ecology. He was invited into the roundtable discussions following the December 2015 U.N. climate negotiations in France, when he and American Cathedral in Paris Dean Lucinda Laird organized several events for conference attendees.

Architects: YH2 Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Houses Text description provided by the architects. With simple, spare lines inspired by the vernacular architecture of the Maritimes, the structure is composed of two wings made of sheet metal and wood, built directly on the ground in the centre of a natural clearing. Instead of meeting at a traditional 90° angle, the two blocks comprising the building have been set an additional 20°5 further apart, opening the house towards the clearing, the afternoon sun and the breeze off Chaleur Bay. Save this picture!The first block is the house itself, an open area under a peaked roof for the living room, dining room and bedroom. The second block, similar to the first, is the all-white painting studio, bathed in light and open to nature through large glass doors. Save this picture!The space joining the blocks features a large deck made of larch, while inside the two wings meet in the kitchen, a transitional space that can be either inside or outside, thanks to the two large glass garage doors installed on either side. Save this picture!A nature retreat, open to the great outdoors when the occupants are in residence, NB20°5 can be closed up like a box during their absence, thanks to the cedar shutters and sliding barn doors that cover all the openings. The house/studio then goes into hibernation mode, just like animals, thereby keeping energy costs to a minimum. To prevent any moisture build-up when the house is not being heated, the interior is constructed entirely of locally sourced, mould-resistant materials: wood (no plaster or drywall) and concrete.

This poses a serious threat to Thailand’s thousands of community radio operators. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage at the suspended sentence of four months in prison and fine of 40,000 baht (840 euros) imposed yesterday by a court in the province of Ang Thong on Sathien Chanthorn, the former operator of Angthong Community Radio Learning Station (FM 106.25), after he was found guilty under a 1955 telecommunications law of broadcasting without a licence and illegal possession of radio equipment.”This verdict violates the Thai constitution and poses a serious threat to the country’s thousands of community radio operators,” the press freedom organisation said. “We voice our full solidarity with Chanthorn and all the community radios that do a remarkable job by letting ordinary people speak on the air, and we call on the Thai courts to recognize Chanthorn’s constitutional right to run a community radio.”The authorities shut down several FM and community radio stations last year but this is the first time that an operator has been convicted for broadcasting programmes.”I do not understand what I am guilty of,” Chanthorn told his judges. “I followed the orders of the public relations department. What’s more, I even received financial assistance from a government social investment fund. If I am guilty, what will happen to other community radio stations?”A 56-year-old farmer, Chanthorn pointed out to the court that article 40 of the 1997 constitution encourages the creation of community radios with the aim of promoting more media diversity. His lawyer argued that article 40 supersedes the 1955 law under which he was convicted. Chanthorn plans to appeal.The police raided Chanthorn’s radio station and confiscated his broadcast equipment on 30 October 2002, while the public relations department (which is closely linked to the prime minister’s office) ordered its closure on the grounds that it was violating the 1955 law.Chanthorn had started the radio station the previous July in Baan Bornam. It functioned without commercial advertising and expressed some criticism of the local authorities. After his equipment was confiscated, Chanthorn started another community radio.After today’s trial, Chanthorn accused the authorities of banning community radio stations from carrying reports about anti-government demonstrations called by journalist Sondhi Limthongkul.

Your government news is made possible with support from: Tagged: downtown ithaca, Green Street Garage, green street garage redevelopment, IURA, Newman Development, Vecino Group, Visum Development ITHACA, N.Y. — It’s going to be a big week for the Ithaca Urban Renewal Agency. The board is poised to select its preferred developer for the Green Street Garage at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in City Hall.The city whittled the proposals down from four to two earlier in the fall (the original submissions can be seen here). Those plans are the Vecino Group proposal for “Asteri Ithaca”, and the Visum Development/Newman Development joint proposal, “120 East Green.” The Rimland/Peak proposal fell flat due to a lack of perceived community benefits (though, the largest plan, it had the least amount of affordable housing), and the Harold’s Holdings “Little Commons” plan received poor scores for a lack of demonstrated financial capacity and project feasibility.Over the past couple of months, city staff and elected officials have coordinated and issued an additional series of questions and requests for data from Vecino and Visum/Newman, as well as made comments about what they like, don’t like, and hope to see revised, giving the two remaining contenders a chance to adjust their plans accordingly. With the final proposals in hand, let’s take a look at what the two are offering. Let’s start this off with a brief summary of the changes in each, and then move into a cross-comparison.Visum Development Group / Newman Development GroupThe Visum/Newman proposal (link), which entered into this final round as something of an underdog, is the plan that has changed the most. The number of units in “120 East Green” has been increased to 205, and that can be seen with the new affordable units added to the top two floors. Seventy-one of those are affordable housing (43%-80% area median income depending on unit) to be owned/managed by INHS, 108 of those are workforce housing (80-90% area median income) and 27 market rate (up to 125% area median income). A 30,000 square-foot conference center space has been added. The ground floor would host 17,100 square feet of retail “with a grocery and home goods component.” There would be a 5,000 square-foot plaza and “art park,” and 525 parking spaces.Vecino GroupThe Vecino Group, “Asteri Ithaca”, remains largely the same as before. The number of units was reduced from 209 to 206, to give the studio apartments a little more space. All 206 of the units are affordable (50-80% area median income depending on unit). Like Visum/Newman, it’s mostly one-bedrooms, with the remaining mix being studios, two-bedrooms, and a few three-bedrooms. The Vecino project has a 30,000 square-foot conference center as well, but they also give the city the option of removing in exchange for a larger public plaza and some additional retail space, or potentially working with Marriott co-owner and first-round Green Street Garage contender Jeff Rimland to include a conference center in a redevelopment of eastern third of the garage, something not present in the Visum/Newman plan. The amount of ground-level retail is otherwise not defined but would line Green Street to provide active street-level uses. The project includes 514 parking spaces.The projects, head to head Brian Crandall At a glance, these are both very much alike. Both proposals meet the stipulations of the original Request for Proposals (RFP). Both will have about 200 apartments. have a 12-story building with retail, conference center space, and apartments above, and each complies with city zoning for the property. Both will use air source heat pumps, both will comply with the city’s proposed Green Building Policy. Each is committed to local labor, though labor representatives previously spoke in favor of Vecino. Both have local project team members (architects, engineers, developers) working on their plans, though Visum/Newman has a greater proportion of local representation their project team. Cinemapolis is retained, and both have a landscaped walkway to the Commons from Green Street. If the city wants the parking spaces to be public in either plan, they will need to subsidize their maintenance.Now let’s try to tease some details apart. Financially, while both will seek a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) or deep tax abatement, and each is a better financial prospect than the city rebuilding the garage on its own, Visum/Newman works out somewhat better for the city, even if Vecino gets the highly competitive grants they’re aiming for. If it doesn’t get those, the city has to subsidize it much more. In terms of housing, Vecino maximizes the number of affordable housing units, while Visum/Newman serves a broader range of incomes.Common Councilors have started to stake their views on one or the other. Back in November, before the final plan revisions, Cynthia Brock (D-1st Ward) and Steve Smith (D-4th) expressed support for the Visum/Newman Plan, while Laura Lewis (D-5th) and Ducson Nguyen (D-2nd) favored the Vecino proposal. A letter submitted by Donna Fleming (D-3rd) was noncommittal to either plan, as was Mayor Myrick at the November meeting. On the other end, councilor George McGonigal (D-1st) said he disliked both plans, also disliked the other two plans that had already been cut, and basically did the bureaucratic equivalent of “I don’t like any of this, I’m taking my ball and going home”. Give him credit for being consistent with his opposition to development and density.To be fair, neither one clearly stands out as being “better” than the other. They both have much to offer the city, and really, either one would go a long way to help meet the city’s goals, like rebuilding a downtown parking garage at the end of its safe/usable life, affordable housing, and conference center space.(In proof this will be a fight to the end, Visum’s Todd Fox reached out after publication to point out that, unlike their submission, Vecino would need millions of dollars in housing grants to have any hope of construction, while Vecino’s Molly Chiang sent revised figures to the IURA and the Voice, showing a financially rosier outlook for their project).Whichever project is eventually selected after IURA review Thursday, the city and developer will then have ninety days to negotiate on the land (called an “Exclusive Negotiation Agreement”, or ENA), and the agreement itself, called a Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA), would go to the IURA committee and Common Council for public hearings and approval votes. If those pan out, the project would then undergo the normal purchase approval and planning review process. Long story short, while a preferred developer will be named this week, don’t expect any deals until well into next year. Brian Crandall reports on housing and development for the Ithaca Voice.
