Inflation in British stores still growing

first_imgTuesday 8 March 2011 7:41 pm whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULL PRICES in British shops rose again in February, despite a slowdown in food price inflation, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) revealed today.Overall prices grew 0.7 per cent compared to January, when they increased by 0.6 per cent on December. Inflation in February rose to an annualised rate of 2.7 per cent, up from 2.5 per cent the previous month.“The good news is tough retail competition is keeping shop price inflation well below the wider consumer price index,” said the BRC’s Stephen Robertson. CPI inflation is expected to exceed four per cent in February.“Even so, non-food inflation would be much higher if the full impact of the VAT rise had been passed on to customers,” Robertson added.Weak consumer demand may be keeping a lid on food prices. “Food retailers have had to maintain promotions and price cuts at the high levels we saw in December and this has helped to mitigate some of the effects of the underlying inflation,” said Mike Watkins of Nielsen, which collates the data.Food price inflation measured 4.5 per cent year-on-year in February, down from 4.6 per cent in January. At the beginning of the year food prices jumped 1.6 per cent compared to December, but the monthly increase to February was only 0.3 per cent.“Food inflation appears to have stabilised for now despite on-going pressure from soaring global commodity costs,” the report said.

England reach Autumn Nations Cup final by beating Wales

first_img England reach Autumn Nations Cup final by beating WalesEngland beat Wales 24-13 at Parc y Scarlets to top Group A and reach the Autumn Nations Cup final.It was not the one-way traffic many expected this match in Llanelli to be given the relative form of the two sides, but in the end Eddie Jones’s team were comfortable victors – even if Wales took an early lead.Johnny Williams scored the first try against the run of play in the tenth minute. Henry Slade looked to kick downfield but the ball ricocheted off Dan Biggar’s hand, the Wales fly-half kicked ahead and Williams chased hard to touch down the ball first.It was reviewed by the TMO to determine whether it was a knock-on by Biggar but because it was a kick from Slade it was considered a chargedown. You can watch the try here… A 24-13 win for Eddie Jones’s team at Parc y Scarlets means they top Group A  They conceded three times as many penalties as England – six to two – in the first 40 and Owen Farrell slotted two of them to give the visitors an 11-7 half-time lead.Mako Vunipola extended that advantage with only his second Test try – and first since 2014 – in the 50th minute.England put pressure on Wales from a five-metre scrum with a series of pick-and-goes, and their patience paid off when Vunipola pirouetted out of a tackle to get over the line. England dominated possession and territory in the opening period – Wales made twice as many tackles (73) to England (36) –  and it was the hosts’ penalty count that proved costly. Prop star: Mako Vunipola scored England’s second try against Wales (Getty Images) England’s ill-discipline allowed Wales to get back into the game, two offside penalties slotted by Biggar to make it 13-18 after an hour.Momentum swung back towards England in the final 20, though, as Farrell kicked another two penalties – and reached a points milestone.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England hit back a few minutes later.After an initial burst by Man of the Match Sam Underhill, the ball was recycled, spread wide and Slade went over… England will now play in the Autumn Nations Cup final against France next Sunday, 6 December – and there will be 2,000 fans in attendance at Twickenham given the change in Government rules from next week.

Cheetahs come from behind to beat Hurricanes in Super Rugby thriller

first_imgThursday Apr 5, 2012 Cheetahs come from behind to beat Hurricanes in Super Rugby thriller The Cheetahs and Hurricanes played some incredible rugby in what was an action packed Super Rugby game in Wellington on Saturday. The visitors looked blown away early on, then fought back and secured a 47-38 win, their second on tour. The dynamic Hurricanes played some scintilating rugby in the first half of this fast paced game, racing off to a 32-11 lead. Julian Savea, Andre Taylor, and Beauden Barritt all played their part.The visiting Cheetahs kept their composure though and fought back admirably, tying things up at 32-32 going into halftime, thanks to three tries in seven minutes.Prop Coenie Oosthuizen scored twice, and despite flyhalf Barritt scoring 23 points in total for the home side, the Cheetahs dominated territory and possesion to pull off a famous win.“It was definitely a great victory, and it’s a nice way to end off the tour,” said captain Adriaan Strauss. “They’ve [his players] got their never-say-die attitude. It’s a good place for us to start building on now for when we get home. “We definitely want to keep that momentum going that we got from beating the Hurricanes. But we aren’t kidding ourselves, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done,” he added.His side now travel back to South Africa to take on the Lions, having left New Zealand and Australia with a 2-2 record, following courageous losses to both the Brumbies and the Crusaders.Remember that you can view all archived Super Rugby highlights hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The old houseTwo hundred years ago there was built a small and simple colony of houses called “Among Cottages” aimed for poor workers in old village called Hloubětín in the East neighbourhood of historical Prague City. The village developed and joined the concept of big Prague in 1922. Though the city grew around, the heart of the Cottages remained the same. So a1 could find a site in 2003 with a house still not even connected to the main city infrastructure with original latrine etc. The place has such a unique atmosphere, that one feels beeing in a countryside yet the underground station is 7minutes walk.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe main feature of all the houses there is their pure simple village look with plaster walls and gabled roof with red ceramic tiles. But the interior of our house was for the very first glance a big surprise with its two vault ceilings in the rooms. These two rooms were connected by small central entrance hall and kitchen. The stone and brick walls are thick 900mm and there were only 6 small windows in the house. The old house has a particular heavy feeling and we knew from the very beginning we want to respect it and follow the atmosphere while making it also a contemporary living and work space.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaThe new houseThe project for renovation and addition of new structure was Lenka ́s diploma thesis done in 2008 at Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. At that time the duo David Maštálka and Lenka Křemenová where already operating under creative name a1architects in Prague.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaA1 decided to join their life and architecture under “one roof”, so the new house needed to be built joining the old structure. The main idea how to connect old and new part comes from respecting the typical central axe of the old house, so the cross layout of two intersecting houses became the most convincing after spending almost a year of designing and neverending discussion. The new addition coexists in certain contrast with the old house yet in harmony and respect to the site.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaThe new house is a timber structure with metal gabled roof and with its specific black charred facade. The central stone walls were turned down and the lightweight timber brought sun shine into an old cave like interior. The cross contraposition of both houses stregthen the local features of village-like urbanism with close and dense neighborhood. The linking of both houses using contrast of materials and structure work in a certain harmony of the main shape of the gabled roofs.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaThe construction timeIt took almost four years to complete the house and two more years to get all the building permission as it is an addition to a historical site which does not follow contemporary building codes… But it was a great experience, actually we felt as attending another school, the school of reality. The most exciting was revealing the old layers, so the very first drawings became more theory and the building time itself worked as a designing process, like when we discovered the lack of foundation mass which was only 30cm under the terrain or discovering walled window or small cellar etc. Two and a half years took the period of refurbishing and repairing the old house, which became partly a ruin and the last year was dedicated to whole completion and timber structure and all the interior, which follows the idea of two houses made out of stone and timber.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaThe life of the houseIt is a delicate moment to connect the family living and office with other 2-3 colleagues and moreover when limited by an existing house. The main black part oriented to the street works as a1 studio which is perfectly separated from the rest of the private garden by tiny patio in the south enframed by small house of the meeting room, which used to be an old shed with original latrine. So the guests do not enter the big house and only visit the separated meeting room with its small kitchenette and toilet.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaThe studio itself serves for max. five people. There is an common hall which divides the work and living space. The family part is mainly in the stone house and just the big central kitchen takes place in the intersection of the timber structure which prolongs the house to the back garden with wooden terrase. The kitchen is the centre of life in this house.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaAnother special issue was how to deal with the staircase in the old structure. In fact the concrete spiral staircase continues in the main central axe of the whole cross of the house and leads the symmetry to the attic level with 3 rooms and bathroom. Symmetry is a main concept of the layout here but it is accompanied by irregularities and aimed assymetrical details. The house itself seems very simple from the outside yet it is very layered in the interior and surprises one how big it could appear from the inside.Save this picture!© David MaštálkaProject gallerySee allShow lessRIBA Launches Centenery Square Regeneration Competition for BirminghamArchitecture NewsFrank Gehry Claims Today’s Architecture is (Mostly) “Pure Shit”Architecture News Share 2014last_img read more

Indiana Cattlemen Seek State Checkoff Program

first_img Indiana Cattlemen Seek State Checkoff Program By Gary Truitt – Feb 7, 2016 Previous articlePutting A Stop to Runaway RegulationNext articleFarmland Taxes Fix Moves to Next Phase of Indiana General Assembly Gary Truitt SHARE Facebook Twitter Indiana Cattlemen Seek State Checkoff ProgramJoe MoreA bill is moving through the Indiana General Assembly to establish a $1 per head state beef checkoff program that would exist in addition to the federal beef checkoff. Indiana Beef Cattle Association Executive Director Joe Moore says the reason for the state check off is finances, “The federal checkoff has existed since 1986 and has been a dollar since that time, of which Indiana gets 50 cents. Today that dollar has about 40 cents of spending power.” Moore said federal check off revenues are also down because fewer head of cattle are being marketed in the state, “We are simply not seeing enough assessments coming our way.”The addition of a state checkoff program would not only help boost promotional activities in the state, but would also allow investment in production research. “Federal dollars can only be used to promotion, but our state funds would be used to fund feeding trials at Purdue or other research that would help producers produce beef better,” said Moore.He added that any producer who felt the additional $1 assessment would be a financial burden can request a refund as the state program would have a refund provision which the federal program does not.  So far, said Moore, most cattle producers are in favor of the program, “Folks that are involved in beef production understand you have to invest in the industry. They understand we are severely underfunded and need additional funds.”The funds would be managed by a group of checkoff-paying producers. The legislation has cleared the House and is expected to go before the Senate Ag committee this week.
