With the exception of parts of the property investment industry, it is now in reasonably good shape. Contrary to what many believe, this means that Wednesday’s Comprehensive Spending Review – and the all too necessary spending cuts it will detail – won’t derail the UK economy. Sure, a chunk of public sector demand will disappear – but a raft of little-noticed data suggests that extra spending in the rest of the economy will more than compensate.The I/B/E/S equity analysts’ consensus earnings forecasts for UK companies have surged from growth of 4.2 per cent year on year 12 months ago to 15.9 per cent now. Analysts are the most optimistic since records began more than 20 years ago; this is the first time since the early 1990s that the consensus expects UK profit growth to outpace the global average. I know that equity analysts are an irrationally exuberant bunch and that UK firms are enjoying growing overseas sales. But the analysts’ mood undoubtedly reflects greater confidence among the firms they talk to.Plenty of other clues suggest that things are going all right (though certainly not superbly) for UK Plc and that it is about to spend a lot more, boosting growth and creating private sector jobs to replace those lost in the state sector. Take corporate bank accounts: many firms are flush with cash. Fewer are saying they are finding it hard to borrow. The British Chambers of Commerce quarterly survey suggests capacity use in firms continues to rise, and is above average in both manufacturing and services. It also finds that competitive pressures are not unusually severe (they tend to be pronounced when there is a lot of excess capacity around, as rivals engage in price wars). So what is happening? Firms slashed their investment spending when the crisis hit – and because so much capex nowadays is on IT on a three-year cycle, productive capacity has fallen. Recent CBI and Bank of England agents’ surveys give a similar message: plants and offices are running at much closer to full capacity than many people realise. This is great news for the economy. With profits bouncing back, investment still low, limited capacity, demand that is still growing (albeit at a weaker rate) in part because of sterling, business investment is likely to rebound. Deloitte’s most recent survey of chief financial officers (CFOs) revealed a strong rise in those who say that expanding investment is one of their top three priorities for the year ahead. Again, one shouldn’t exaggerate this positive trend. But I suspect that Michael Saunders, Citigroup’s excellent chief European economist, is right to be predicting a 10 per cent or so recovery in corporate capital spending by the end of 2011. A similar argument helps to explain why the Ernst & Young Item Club expects GDP growth of 1.4 per cent this year and 2.2 per cent next year (the latter figure still sounds a little high to me, which ought to be proof that I’m no deluded optimist, merely a realist). The simple truth is that no serious forecaster is predicting a double-dip recession in the UK as their central outcome next year, even though everybody knows that spending cuts are coming. There is plenty of evidence of an economic slowdown since the spring but none of another collapse. Economists often get it totally wrong – but not this time.

World Forum: Economies face big risks

first_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ World Forum: Economies face big risks whatsapp Tags: NULL WORLD governments have been drained of resources after the financial crisis and are poorly-equipped to handle 21st-century global risks, a new study reported yesterday.Governments are less able to tackle emerging global risks such as shortages of natural resources, an ageing world population and fragile states dominated by illegal activity. But the macroeconomic trends that precipitated the credit crunch are still in evidence, the World Economic Forum Global Risks 2011 report said.Huge fiscal imbalances between indebted developed states and debt-free developing economies leave countries vulnerable to excessive and destabilising capital flows, asset price collapses and volatile currencies.These risks are “coming together in a particularly dangerous cocktail,” said World Economic Forum managing director Robert Greenhill.Most advanced countries are running a fiscally unsustainable position, Daniel Hofman, group chief economist at Zurich Financial Services, said. Public debt in countries such as the US, Ireland, Belgium and Italy is now more than 90 per cent of GDP, a level at which it puts a one per cent drag on growth. Ageing populations, as much a threat to China and Brazil as developed countries, will push states far further into debt. Age-related liabilities are estimated to average 440 per cent of GDP in developed countries – or ten times the average cost of the financial crisis. Shortages of vital resources such as food, water and oil will push price volatility on key commodities to new highs, said John Drzik, chief executive of consultancy Oliver Wyman. “We are experiencing a new age of commodity price volatility and many commodities are at all-time price highs,” he said. Volatility has risen dramatically since 2005 and is set to continue as supplies of corn, wheat, oil and metals struggle to meet demand. But Drzik also blamed financial markets for the problem. “Financial speculators will be an unpredictable source of demand, creating even more volatility in prices,” he said.AT A GLANCE | GLOBAL RISKS IN 2011OVERARCHING RISKSGrowing economic disparity both between and within countries is making it harder for governments to tackle crises, while global governance structures are failing to manage disparate national interests.MACROECONOMIC IMBALANCESWeaknesses left in the global economy from the financial crisis, such as high levels of developed country debt, are creating unsustainable imbalances such as currency and inflationary pressures between countries.ILLEGAL ECONOMIESFragile states supporting illicit trade, organised crime and corruption pose a particular risk to global stability. The deterioration in countries such as Afghanistan undermines rule of law and exacerbates poverty, while illicit trade was estimated to be an $1.3 trillion (£835bn) industry in 2009.NATURAL RESOURCESA growing world population is putting unsustainable pressure on resources. Demand for food, water and energy is predicted to rise by 30-50 per cent by 2030. Shortages may increase commodity price volatility and could spark social unrest, political instability and environmental damage.FIVE RISKS TO WATCHThe report tips cyber-security; demographic challenges from ageing populations; resource security; a backlash against globalisation and renewed threat from weapons of mass destruction as five areas that may have severe and under-appreciated consequences. whatsapp Share Wednesday 12 January 2011 8:29 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeBewadaHusband Divorced His Wife After Looking Closer At This PhotoBewadavirimi.com14 Efficient Arm Workouts To Build Might & Muscle – Virimivirimi.comAmoMediaMan Leaves Wife For Her Sister, Her Revenge Is BrilliantAmoMediaadvisor15 Plants that Repel Mosquitoes Naturallyadvisorcutenova.comTake a Peek at 10 of the Most Expensive Houses in the Worldcutenova.comHealth.recetasgetHeart Attack Early Warning Signs and SymptomsHealth.recetasgetBuzzDestination7 Types of Men Who Are Not Made For RelationshipsBuzzDestination5log – Livinguard®This mask has been sold out in Germany 5 days after the government has tighten up5log – Livinguard®Mold Removal | Search AdsBathroom Mold Removal Tips That Might Surprise Most AmericansMold Removal | Search Adslast_img read more

We all know how lines outside of stores look when they form on the eve of Black Friday; however, the Houston Chronicle reported a similar sight yesterday morning outside of the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center. Imagine waiting in line and hearing “Houston, I love you” from a bullhorn. Beto O’Rourke made a special appearance to cheer on supporters.Karen Bard, who doesn’t usually vote in midterms, said she waited in line for over an hour until the polls opened because O’Rourke changed that. While O’Rourke had six rallies planned over the Houston area Monday, Ted Cruz brought President Donald Trump in for a rally in his support at the Toyota Center.

Syria : Well-known Syrian citizen-journalist probably died in detention in 2013

first_imgSyria is ranked 174th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. April 19, 2019 – Updated on March 11, 2020 Syria : Well-known Syrian citizen-journalist probably died in detention in 2013 Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists RSF_en After being arrested by Syrian intelligence agents in Aleppo in March 2012, Othman was forced to make a “confession” that was recorded and broadcast on Syrian TV in April 2012. It included questions about his video reports, his relations with the participants in demonstrations, and his relations with foreign reporters. One of the managers of the media centre in the city of Homs at the start of the uprising in Syria in 2011, Othman gained prominence for his coverage of the Syrian government’s artillery bombardment of Homs and for helping foreign reporters. After his arrest, he became one of the many journalists to disappear in the government’s prisons. Organisation Othman described the bombardment of Homs in the many live interviews he gave to international TV channels with his face unconcealed. He also helped foreign reporters operating clandestinely in the city, including Marie Colvinand Rémi Ochlik, who were killed in an artillery attack on the Baba Amr media centre in Homs in February 2012.

Dozens of Syrian journalists are still missing in various parts of the country. In most cases they disappeared after being arrested by government forces. They remain missing although the Assad government, when issuing updated lists of civilian deaths last year, implicitly recognized that hundreds of missing persons, including journalists, had died in detention. Shiyar Khalil, a Syrian journalist who managed to get out of prison and leave Syria, has described the torture to which he was submitted in similar circumstances, and how his interrogators accused him of “fabricating false information against Bashar al-Assad and of being a terrorist.” “All possible light must be shed on the status of Ali Othman and the other journalists who disappeared after being arrested by the Syrian authorities,” RSF’s Middle East desk said. “The survivors must be freed without delay, the bodies of those who died in detention must be returned to their families, and those responsible for their death or execution must be identified.” March 12, 2021 Find out more News Edith Bouvier, a French journalist injured in the same attack who was smuggled out of Syria with Othman’s help, told Le Figaro when Othman was arrested that “he had expressed the fear that he could be accused of colluding with a hostile country – France – and that helping us to get free might cost him his life.” The fate of many journalists who were kidnapped in Syria by rebel armed groups, including Jaysh al Islam and Islamic State, is also still unknown.

Limerick City and County Council tackles Parkway cycle path hazard

Print Linkedin Deputy Willie O’Dea with the realigned cycle lane at Norwood ParkFIANNA Fail TD Willie O’Dea has praised Limerick City and County Council for switching the cycle path and footpath on the Childers Road near the Parkway.In an interview with the Limerick Post, Deputy O’Dea first pleaded for the switch to be made before a serious injury or death occurred. He made the call after a near miss when a grandmother and her grandchild were almost struck by a cyclist.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The incident I brought to light earlier in the year was just the latest near miss on this stretch of cycle path near the Parkway roundabout. Last year a woman was struck and was injured by a cyclist in the same area,” he said.“A cycle path and a footpath run alongside the Childers Road between the Parkway and Tipperary road roundabouts. The footpath was nearest the road and the cycle path was on the inside, running alongside Norwood Park.“Up to now, if a pedestrian was emerging from Norwood Park, they walked right into the path of oncoming cyclists some of whom would be travelling at 40km per hour or more. It was obviously particularly dangerous for anybody pushing a pram or buggy.”The city TD contacted council officials about the cycle path after a grandmother and her grandchild were inches away from being struck by a cyclist travelling at speed last April.“They confirmed what everybody can see, that the cycle path was installed in the wrong place. Initially, a developer constructed part of the cycle and footpath in error in the wrong order and the council extended it over the years.“I have to commend the council for rectifying the situation after all these years by switching the two lanes before anybody got badly injured or even killed. I don’t believe there was significant costs involved in this, as most of the work involved changing the markings on the footpath and cycle paths,” he explained.

An autonomous Doppler Sodar wind profiling system

first_imgAn autonomous Doppler sodar wind profiling system has been designed, built, tested, and then deployed for 2 years at a remote site in Coats Land, Antarctica. The system is designed around a commercially available phased-array sodar (a Scintec flat-array sodar, FAS64) and powered from five modular power system units. Each power unit comprises two batteries, two photovoltaic solar panels, and two vertical axis wind generators, plus charging control and isolation circuitry. The sodar’s main processing unit is located at the antenna, but is controlled from a manned research station 50 km distant, in real time, by a line-of-sight UHF radio link. Data from an integral automatic weather station (AWS) are also transmitted over the radio link, allowing meteorologically informed decisions on whether or not to operate the Doppler sodar. Over the 2-yr experiment dozens of sounding episodes, lasting from a few hours to a few days, were obtained. Successful soundings were obtained in temperatures down to −33°C, and wind speeds up to 12 m s−1. In general, the wind data quality was good, but the range was disappointing, probably as a result of the strongly stable atmospheric conditions that were experienced. The wind profiling system that is described has been used to obtain the first remote wintertime observations of katabatic winds over the Antarctic continent.last_img read more
