Sunday 6 February 2011 10:27 pm Share whatsapp Report: emerging economies crucial for British exporters EXPORTS from the UK will rebound over the next decade, driven by a boom in goods and services going to emerging markets, a leading group of economists said today.Overall exports will rise by 8.5 per cent a year, according to forecasters at the Ernst and Young Item Club.The total value of UK goods and services into “BRIC” countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China) is set to increase by 11.7 per cent a year to 2020.British exports to BRIC countries increased by an average of 20.6 per cent a year between 2004 and 2008. The recession resulted in a major slowdown, as export growth to BRICs dropped to 2.2 per cent (2008–2010), and still lag behind peer countries such as Germany and the US. But the global recovery is expected to reignite exports to booming BRICs.Annual economic growth over the next decade will be far higher in China (8.5 per cent), India (7.9 per cent), Brazil (4.2 per cent) and Russia (four per cent) than in Western areas such as the Eurozone (1.8 per cent).Exports of British financial services, mainly from the City, will increase by almost 10 per cent a year, the report said. Item economist Andrew Goodwin said the government should attempt to “break down regulatory barriers for companies that wish to break into those countries.” KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Inside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com Tags: NULL

Fingers of fateEdinburgh No 8 Cornell du Preez executed not one, but two superb tap-tackles to stop Gloucester’s most potent strike runners from scoring. As well as bringing May down a couple of strides from the line, he also halted a dangerous break from Charlie Sharples in the first quarter. The two tackles showed what great athleticism and determination du Preez has and Edinburgh will hope to use him to greater effect nextseason after he missed most of this campaign through injury.Who’s the daddy?Much was made before the Edinburgh v Gloucester clash of the head-to-head battle between Scotland’s top two No 9s, Greig Laidlaw and Sam Hidalgo-Clyne. It was the more experienced Gloucester man who out-shone the young pretender and Laidlaw’s cool head and excellent game management really came into play when Gloucester were defending a six-point league with 14 men in the closing stages.He guided them through 20 phases to wind down the last five minutes of the clock, mostly just popping a pass to the nearest forward and occasionally spreading the ball a little wider, but knowing that Edinburgh could not afford to give away a penalty and so would have to be careful at every breakdown. Hidalgo-Clyne’s day might come, but Laidlaw showed what a valuable asset he is this time.Hair-raising: Supporters of #IAMASHLEYJOHNSON will hope it’s not a windy day (Photo: Action Images)Hair-brained schemeHats off – or should that be wigs off – to the Wasps Academy, who have launched an innovative fundraising campaign for The Brain Tumour Charity.The young players will be handing out 15,000 Ashley Johnson-style wigs before next weekend’s Wasps v Leicester match, in return for donations of at least £1 per wig. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS This #IAMASHLEYJOHNSON campaign aims to raise at least £10,000 for the UK’s largest dedicated brain tumour charity, while giving fans the chance to emulate their hero’s unmistakable hairstyle en masse at the Ricoh Arena.Supporters who are unable to attend the match will still be able to donate by texting WASP88 to 70070 followed by the amount they want to donate.Robinson to the rescueBristol went into the Greene King IPA Championship play-offs at the top ranked club, but looked in danger of coming unstuck as they trailed Rotherham 17-8 early in the second half of their semi-final first leg.It looked like the West Country side were going to squander their home advantage, then – after a penalty from Gavin Henson reduced the arrears – replacement fly-half Nicky Robinson rescued the game for Bristol with a moment of magic.He darted through a gap on the blindside and passed to David Lemi, who sprinted in for a try and from there Bristol kicked on to win the first leg 32-20.A fine proposalMaidstone rugby club skipper Ben Williams showed a bit of star quality on Sunday. First he led his team to victory in the RFU’s Intermediate Cup final at Twickenham, where they beat Bridgnorth 31-18 to cap off an unbeaten season. Then the loosehead prop called his girlfriend Jo down onto the pitch immediately after the trophy presentation, got down on one knee and proposed to her. Happily, she said yes!Double trouble: Noa Nakaitaci compounded one error with another. (Photo: Inpho)The SinnersNo, No NoaNoa Nakaitaci had a moment of madness which cost Clermont Auvergne three points during the Champions Cup final. He attempted to field a long kick from Sebastien Tillous-Borde, but he ended up dropping it over the touchline. The canny Bryan Habana raced up to Nakaitaci as he picked the ball up again in touch, pretending he wanted to take a quick throw, which would not have been allowed. The Clermont wing stupidly threw the ball away, Habana waved his arms at the officials to bring their attention to the misdemeanour and Toulon were duly awarded a penalty which Leigh Halfpenny kicked, to extend their lead to 19-11.Off you go: Referee Jerome Garces points the way for Bill Meakes (left). (Photo: Inpho)Bad boysGloucester almost lost the Challenge Cup final through their own indiscipline, as Ross Moriarty was sin-binned with 55 minutes on the clock then Bill Meakes was shown a red card eight minutes later.Moriarty earned his time in the cooler by planting a knee in the back of Fraser McKenzie after a scrum broke up. The ball was nowhere near him and it was a needless bit of foul play which could easily have seen him get his permanent marching orders.Meakes was sent off for a high tackle on Sam Beard when the Edinburgh centre ran across him as a support runner. Again, it was a reckless foul and while some might argue it could have been a yellow instead of a red, it still landed his team in a heap of trouble.The mystery of the empty seatsFantastic though the Challenge Cup final was (especially as a Gloucester fan), it was very frustrating to see scores of empty seats around the Twickenham Stoop, when I know there were fans who had tried and failed to buy tickets.The Harlequins website says the ground’s capacity is 14,800 and the attendance on the night was only 14,316. So why, after Gloucester and Edinburgh members had snapped up their small allocations, was it only possible to buy tickets on Stubhub and Viagogo, at prices many times above the face value?Fan fun: Gloucester folk celebrate with Nick Wood, but more were left at home. (Photo Getty Images)I tried and failed to get tickets from Ticketmaster 12 days before the final and spent more than an hour in a telephone queue to the Gloucester ticket office last weekend attempting in vain to buy a couple of tickets for family members.Who had the tickets for the nearly 500 seats which turned out to be empty on the night?Were they people who had bought them in the autumn, hoping their team would be there, then decided not to go and tried to sell them at inflated prices via the above mentioned websites? Were they sponsors and other companies, who had not handed back unwanted tickets? The SaintsTreble triumphWe can all accuse Toulon of buying their success, and there is no doubt their riches have allowed them to assemble an unparalleled squad, but they still deserve plaudits for becoming the first side to win the top tier European cup three times in a row thanks to Saturday’s Champions Cup final triumph over Clermont Auvergne.Money can get you a long way, particularly against teams who have smaller budgets, but there is a lot more to creating a truly great rugby team than just opening your cheque book. The character of the players as well as their talents, the skill of the coaches to manage all the egos and create a proper squad ethos, the ability of the players to produce their best on the big stage – all of these things are important and Toulon have mastered them.Game breakerToulon led 16-11 at half-time in the Champions Cup final and extended that lead to 19-11 before Nick Abendanon scored a wonder-try for Clermont Auvergne to make it 19-18. It looked as though the balance of the game was shifting decisively towards Clermont, until a piece of individual brilliance from Australian wing Drew Mitchell gave the initiative back to Toulon.He received a pass after a lineout around half-way, scorched through a gap, swerved and stepped his way around Jonathan Davies and Abendanon to touch down for the try. Leigh Halfpenny failed with the conversion but the six-point gap proved to be enough and Mitchell’s contribution was vital to Toulon’s success.Nippy Nick: Abendanon cruises across the try-line for his superb try. (Photo: Getty Images)Nice one, NickNick Abendanon joins the ranks of the Saints from the losing side, as his 63rd minute try put Clermont right back into the game. The Englishman caught a poor clearance from Bryan Habana and ran back at the Toulon defence, chipped beautifully over their heads and collected his own kick to claim a stunning score.He ran 168m with the ball in hand during the final – by far and away the most ground gained by any player in the match – but had to settle for a runners up medal.May Day celebrationThe evening before the Champions Cup final, Gloucester beat Edinburgh 19-13 in the European Challenge Cup final, thanks in no small part to Man of the Match Jonny May. For once the wing wasn’t on the scoresheet himself, but he created a try for Billy Twelvetrees with a brilliant run from halfway and a perfectly timed pass.May came within a whisker of scoring himself after 25 minutes when a run from his own 22 was only stopped by a superb tap-tackle from Cornell du Preez.Accused by some of lacking the all-round game to go with his devastating pace, May was also excellent under the high ball, didn’t miss a tackle and even stopped a drive on the line.If no less a figure than Brian O’Driscoll calls your performance “exceptional” and “phenomenal” you have plenty to be proud of. Gloucester fans have a new reason to remember this 1st May as May Day.Chasing a lost cause? Cornell du Preez is hunting down Jonny May. (Photo: Getty Images) Dynamite Drew: A triumphant Drew Mitchell with the Champions Cup. (Photo: Inpho) TAGS: GloucesterWasps The stakes were high when Toulon and Clermont Ferrand lined up for the European Champions Cup final and Gloucester and Edinburgh battled it out for the Challenge Cup. Who placed the winning bets and who backed a loser? Either way, there were Gloucester and Edinburgh fans watching the game on TV, who would have loved to have been there.Selling tickets for the Champions Cup final throughout the season is a good idea, as it is difficult to sell it out when the fans of the clubs who reach the final only have a couple of weeks’ notice that their team has qualified. But if the Challenge Cup final is held at a smaller stadium, with a capacity of under 20,000, then the tickets should not be put on sale until after the semi-finals and the vast majority of them should go to the two clubs involved. I hope the organisers have a re-think next season.

Located along Church St. between Warren and Chambers St in the Tribeca neighbourhood of New York City, the project is set for completion in the fall of 2017.The building features large picture windows of varying orientations and sizes. “The design of 30 Warren is purposely asymmetrical arranging for an intentional void, staggered floors on the west side, and a southern facade with two setbacks to take full advantage of the views of the Manhattan skyline, the skyscrapers in the Financial District and the river,” said Francois Leininger of Post-Office Architectes. “We focused on framing the amazing views and arranged a sequence of large picture windows to capture the grand moments of the city. The framed views were determined from the interior of the units as a way of bringing the city into the residences without overexposing its occupants.”Residences vary between one to three bedroom homes in addition to three full-floor penthouses, ranging in size from 1,000 to over 2,500 square feet. Many of the larger residences have private outdoor space including expansive terraces and balconies. Each interior is custom designed by Post-Office Architectes, and all residences feature 10-foot ceilings, large picture windows and panel oak flooring.Building amenities will include an attended lobby, fitness center, children’s playroom and private storage.ArchitectsPost-Office ArchitectesLocation30 Warren St, New York, NY 10007, USAArchitects in ChargeDavid Fagart and Francois LeiningerExecutive ArchitectHTO ArchitectsProject Year2017PhotographsM-PrimeLocation30 Warren St, New York, NY 10007, USAProject Year2017PhotographsM-PrimeWavelength Pictures’ Documentary Set to Revisit the Life and Work of Kevin RocheMiscAKA Sushi / Synecdoche Design Studio + daub-labSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:30 Warren St, New York, NY 10007, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Items bought most often by marketers are pens (35%), pads, notebooks, and sticky notes (13%), and canvas shopping or eco bags (10%).Gordon Glenister, Director-General at the BPMA said: “Promotional merchandise is far more than just a freebie. Used correctly, it delivers powerful and positive advertising messages, as well as a thank you. In fact, our recent research showed that branded gifts can deliver a higher or equal return on investment than most forms of advertising.”Promotional Products Week includes the BPMA Design Awards Competition, which invites UK-based undergraduate design students to come up with inspiring, original new product ideas for promotional merchandise, and a dinner at the House of Commons, hosted by Brian Binley MP.

Legacy income up 5.1% in 2017, according to Legacy Foresight figures Advertisement Latest figures from Legacy Foresight, covering the 12 months to December 2017 show a 5.1% rise in total legacy income for the year, including an increase for the second consecutive quarter.According to Legacy Foresight’s Legacy Monitor, its 83 Legacy Monitor members received £1.5bn in legacy income in the year to 31 December 2017. Total bequests reached 53,775; up 3.2% on 2016.Average residual values reached a record high of £60,600, boosted by growth in both house and share prices in the second half of last year (up by 4.5% and 10% respectively), according to Legacy Foresight. Residual bequests (which represent a share of what is left in the estate after all specific gifts are bestowed) account for 87% of total Consortium legacy income. Average pecuniary (or cash gift) values have also seen a sharp rise, and now stand at just over £4,000.Over the next 12 months, Legacy Foresight expects to see numbers of bequests continue to rise along with death rates. Meanwhile, it says, the value of those bequests will depend on the state of the UK economy, and it expects Brexit to continue to hamper investment and spending decisions in the short term, in turn dampening domestic demand and economic growth. The Legacy Monitor programme has now entered its eleventh year, and has announced six new member charities for this year: Abbeyfield, CLIC Sargent, Royal Air Forces Association, Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare, St Christopher’s Hospice and St John Ambulance.

Oleg Albinsky/iStock(WASHINGTON) — The White House said Friday – that like many workplaces around the U.S. – it’s giving increased attention to workplace health safety standards amid concerns over the novel coronavirus and implementing enhanced procedures to avoid disrupting the “business of leading our Nation.”Some of the procedures are standard, including increased cleaning of high-traffic areas and educating staff on best hygiene practices and sick leave policies.But less orthodox is a request that staff take into account Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel advisories before bringing guests into the White House complex and a procedure by which guests must disclose the countries they’ve visited in the last 30 days, a White House official confirms.White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham issued a statement on the procedures being put in place.“The White House Complex has, and will continue to reassess circumstances and adopt new processes and safe practices in line with evolving [federal agency] guidance to include: educating staff on hygiene best practices, existing sick day & telework policies, increased cleaning routines for high-traffic areas, and asking staff to be alert to the CDC & DoS’ (Department of State) current set of international health & travel advisories when scheduling meetings or travel, and inviting people onto the complex,” she said.“While we are taking every common-sense precaution necessary to protect federal employees, our policies and procedures remain in line with the President’s guidance to the country – and that is to continue to do everything we can to avoid disruptions to the day-to-day business of leading our Nation,” Grisham said in her statement.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
