The Treasury claims that the tax is intended to “encourage banks to move to less risky funding profiles”, but chancellor George Osborne says the primary aim is to raise revenue: “I’m after £2.5bn and we’ve made it clear we are prepared to alter the rate to get that,” he said.It will apply to bank balance sheets after an allowance of £20bn and excludes many deposits and equity capital. RBS has estimated that the levy will cost it £315 next year and £473m in 2012, while it is understood that Barclays is making provisions for an impact of £380m.The tax will apply to 30 to 40 financial institutions, with some exemptions for those potentially facing a double levy due to a heavy presence in other jurisdictions considering a bank tax, such as Deutsche Bank.The announcement prompted concerns that by deciding to implement a levy alone, the UK could price itself out of the market for attracting financial services investment.CBI’s director for competitive markets Matthew Fell said: “To be truly effective and avoid undermining competitiveness, any new rules should be coordinated internationally or they risk harming economies. This is particularly true for the UK, given London’s role as a global financial centre.”British Bankers’ Association chief executive Angela Knight told City A.M.: “In many respects, the design has improved (since its first drafts). However, we still remain concerned about the effect of the bank levy on the international competitiveness of the UK.”Many banks have threatened to move operations and jobs abroad due to increasingly onerous regulation in the UK.

Stock market crash: I’d invest £5k in these dirt-cheap small-caps in an ISA

first_img Royston Wild | Monday, 25th May, 2020 | More on: CTH The recent stock market crash has been unkind to scores and scores of UK-listed shares. The threat of a deep and extended global recession should be taken seriously, naturally. But the extent of some share selling has been quite OTT, in my opinion.CareTech Holding (LSE: CTH) is a small-cap I think has been way, way oversold. At current prices of 385p per share, the care and education specialist deals on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 9.5 times. It’s a rating that both undermines its exceptional defensive qualities and its rising revenues opportunities, in my opinion.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…The company provides a wide range of essential social care services for children and adults. It thus provides an indispensable service that does not bend to changes in the broader economic landscape. Indeed, recent CareTech comments disclosing that business has remained “resilient” since the end of March underline just what a brilliant investing lifeboat it is during tough times like these.Don’t think of CareTech as just a wise buy as the global economy shakes, though. The firm remains committed to acquisitions to bolster its longer-term profits outlook. Earlier this year entered it secured a 51% stake in AS Group, a business it describes as “the largest provider of private outpatient mental health services in the United Arab Emirates.” It has plenty of financial firepower to follow through on its packed pipeline of investment opportunities too.Another crash casualtyTyman is another small-cap I’d happily stash into my own stocks portfolio following the recent crash. At current prices around 165p per share, it trades on a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of around 7.5 times. It’s a reading that I don’t think reflects its rock-solid balance sheet or its brilliant long-term profits picture.The business makes the components for doors and windows that are essential for homebuilding. It stands to struggle in the near term due to the cyclical nature of its operations. But the strength of its market-leading brands all over the globe — it has operations across Europe, The Americas and Asia — should put it in the box seat for a strong recovery when the global economic downturn eases.A glorious foodieI’d also be happy to buy sausage skin maker Devro today. This small-cap’s price of 160p per share means that it trades on an earnings multiple of approximately 10 times, based on current forecasts. And it’s a company that’s expected to keep growing earnings over the next couple of years, irrespective of the upcoming macroeconomic slump.We can’t do without food, obviously. And so those involved in the production of edible goods tend to be more resilient in times like these. But don’t just think that Devro as a top buy for the next few years. The recent investments it has made to boost its product ranges and its global manufacturing base should bolster its profit-making abilities over the longer term too. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Devro.

The architecture and interiors enjoy various aesthetic interests and were inspired by the west coast landscape which is quite textural and typified by simple white houses and cottages, reminiscent of the Mediterranean.Save this picture!© Adam LetchCavity brick construction was used throughout with all walls plastered and painted white. The building had to be grounded – it could not float – therefore it needed to be vertical, not horizontal. ‘Both the front and rear pavilions are two storeys and the windows are sliced through to the parapet to emphasise the verticality. The two pavilions are joined by the gallery, which is a single storey element where the horizontal lateral wall again emphasises the verticality of the main building. There is a seamless flow between these spaces and a sense of uninterrupted connection between inside and outside. The floor slabs are off-form concrete, contrasting with the painted plaster of the walls, yet further expressing the vertical line.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe scale of furniture, its colour and texture, were important to satisfy comfort levels. The unit seating and the dining table were custom designed to complement the space. The external furniture pieces were chosen for their scale and simplicity; bold pieces that hold the spaces together. The TV and all audio equipment was concealed in the living room wall cabinet, behind the large steel framed sliding panel that accommodates a substantial artwork. A custom designed fireplace was recessed into a stainless steel ledge.Save this picture!© Adam LetchTo maximise the size of the main en-suite, a custom-shower was created and glass for the internal walls was used. All bedroom floors are finished in wide board oak flooring; the view from the master suite is ever changing.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe granite tiles were selected for their texture and grain, which resonates with rocks in the distance, providing that external feel of being on the terrace. Their size is proportionate to the space and contrasts with certain soft textures within the interior. Here, the selection of furniture includes various modern classics.Save this picture!© Adam LetchStriving to reduce the structure to its minimum so as to maximise views, there are no ‘framed views’. The canvas had to be as large as possible on a site such as this, yet provide privacy to / from future neighbours and shelter from the elements. Using strategically placed columns, the opening was stretched to the maximum of 14 metres addressing the ocean. To achieve the lightness of the space, proportion and height was essential. Ceiling heights of 3,3 metres ensured this result, with full height sliding doors. The living areas needed to flow seamlessly, creating a feel of the outside deck to be inside and the living / dining space to include the covered terrace for flexibility. The full height sliding doors retract into the structure to form a singular space here.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe result is an individual statement of appealing symmetry, a modern home with large entertainment areas and all the mod cons.Project gallerySee allShow lessAtkins Designs Striking Office Complex in GuangzhouArchitecture NewsSALVA46 Coliving in Barcelona / MIEL Arquitectos + STUDIO P10Selected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/533054/pearl-bay-residence-gavin-maddock-design-studio Clipboard Houses photographs:  Adam LetchPhotographs:  Adam Letch+ 27 Share CopyInterior Design:Gavin Maddock Design Studio (GMDS)Structural Engineer:Hulme & Associates Geotechnical Engineer: Kantey & Templer LandSurveyor:Neil Spencer & AssociatesContractor:McNeil ConstructionCity:YzerfonteinCountry:South AfricaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Adam LetchRecommended ProductsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensDoorsC.R.

The result is a rectangular double storey structure of 600 square metres with imaginatively conceived outdoor living spaces.

Press release: Law change could lead to a smarter generation of motorway users

first_img By allowing learners to have lessons on motorways, we are modernising driver training and making sure learners get the skills and experience they need to drive on fast, busy roads. Safety is our number one priority and we welcome today’s change which will help equip learner drivers to drive safely on motorways when they have passed their tests. We look forward to supporting the motorway drivers of tomorrow as they develop these new driving skills and get invaluable practical knowledge and experience of using motorways. The Department for Transport consulted on these changes in December 2016. They received wide support from learner drivers, the driver training industry and road safety organisations and the general public. These changes apply to England, Wales and Scotland only.General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer. get broader driving experience before taking their driving test get training on how to join and leave the motorway, overtake and use lanes correctly practise driving at higher speeds put their theoretical knowledge into practice Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Chief Executive, Gareth Llewellyn, said: The changes will allow learner drivers to: Highways England is predicting a smarter generation of motorway road users following a law change allowing learner drivers about to take their driving test to get their first taste of motorway driving.In the past learner drivers’ first experience of driving at higher speeds had been limited to using dual carriageways and only when they had passed their driving test could they get their first experiences of driving on a motorway.For some newly passed and inexperienced drivers this could prove to be a daunting and often frightening experience.Now under a change to the law from June 2018, learners will be allowed to drive on motorways with an approved driving instructor (ADI) using a dual controlled car displaying L plates.Highways England, the body responsible for Britain’s motorways and strategic A roads, says this law change will help develop a smarter generation of motorway road users.It will allow approved driving instructors (ADI) to teach learners about the specific set of skills associated with using the motorways safely in a practical situation.Head of Road Safety at Highways England, Richard Leonard, said:last_img read more

How has Covid-19 outbreak impacted your business?

first_imgIn the past two months, bakery businesses and their suppliers have been through greater upheaval than at any time since World War II.Some saw virtually all their trade disappear overnight when pubs, restaurants and schools shut their doors. Other closed up shop over fears they would find it impossible to keep staff and customers safe from infection.Meanwhile, those supplying the supermarkets saw demand soar as retailers struggled to keep bread and baked goods on shelves.But, in many cases, businesses transformed themselves overnight, finding new routes-to-market – whether that is delivering direct to consumers or securing new retail listings.If you run a bakery business or supply bakery firms with ingredients or equipment, we want to hear how your business was impacted by the outbreak.Please take a few minutes to fill in our brief survey and help us get a picture of how coronavirus has affected the baking industry, and how it has reacted to the challenges.last_img read more

Big Gigantic To Bring Their Electro Hip-Hop Dance Party To Atlanta’s Coca-Cola Roxy

first_imgColorado’s Big Gigantic is about to head out on their Got The Love Tour in a little over a week’s time, which will see the duo of Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken head down to Atlanta, GA for a show at the Coca-Cola Roxy on Saturday, February 10th with support from Shallou (purchase tickets here). To compliment their musical stylings, Big G’s performance is enhanced by state-of-the-art production and set designs which have helped make the group a must-see headliner and top tier festival act across the board, at venues and events such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Ultra Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and more.In 2016, the electronic, hip-hop, and jazz-influenced group dropped their hit album Brighter Future, which debuted at #1 on iTunes Electronic charts and #2 on Billboard Dance / Electronic chart. The album features guest spots from the likes of Waka Flocka Flame (“Highly Possible”), GRiZ (“C’mon”), as well as Trey Anastasio Band’s two leading ladies Jennifer Hartswick (“I’ve Gotta Know” and “Got The Love”) and Natalie Cressman (“No Apologies”), to name a few. A few months back, Big G released the remix compilation of the album, Brighter Future Remixed, which finds the likes of Kasbo, Manic Focus, Kill The Zo (Matt Zo and Kill The Noise), Naderi, and more.“Got The Love” ft. Jennifer Hartswick:[via Big Gigantic]Big Gigantic are firm believers in music with a purpose, as the duo has been involved in various charities and non-profit organizations from day one, including Conscious Alliance and their own A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation. In an interview with Dancing Astronaut, Lalli discussed the group’s charitable endeavors, specifically with Youth On Record, an orgnaization that aims to “empower 1,000 teens in some of Denver’s most vulnerable communities to make life choices that positively impact their future by teaching them to develop the coping tools, inspiration, and wherewithal to succeed in today’s world and to become leaders.”“It’s great to help out the community we live in,” Lalli explained. “If we are giving instruments to kids that are in our community, that’s just passing the torch on to the next generation. It’s great to be able to do it locally, because we’re able to come down and help in person.”Joining Big G in the support spot is Shallou, an indie-electronic producer based out of Chicago, IL. Downtempo, ambient, ethereal beats and vocals highlight the sounds of his 2017 debut EP All Becomes Okay. Shallou has also released a beautiful cover of Radiohead‘s “Motion Picture Soundtrack,” honoring the group that provided early inspiration for the artist. Shallou is the perfect compliment to Big G’s bangers, with a style that will get the crowd grooving early and often.Shallou “You and Me”:[via Soundcloud]Big Gigantic recently released their Winter Chill Mix Vol. 4, which sees Lalli and Salken re-create tracks from artists that have been on their own personal playlist as of late, such as Jaw Gems, Hayden Gems, Flamingosis, Portugal.

Allan R. Robinson

first_imgAllan R. Robinson, Gordon McKay Professor of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Emeritus, died suddenly on September 25, 2009, at his summer home overlooking Buzzards Bay.  Professor Robinson established and, for nearly four decades almost single-handedly ran, a graduate program in physical oceanography in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.  Many of his nearly 30 Ph.D. students and 25 postdoctoral fellows hold leadership positions at major universities and research centers.Allan was known throughout the world of oceanography for his insightful contributions to understanding the Gulf Stream, the evolution of ocean eddies (the oceanic equivalent of weather), and the dynamics of circulation in the Mediterranean Sea.  In the early 1980s he demonstrated that ocean current forecasting was possible and developed the Harvard Ocean Prediction System, a uniquely portable forecasting and analysis tool that is still widely used.  He then successfully connected this methodology to practical applications in fisheries, search and rescue, and national defense.Allan was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, and grew up a few blocks from the coast in Marblehead.  As a student he excelled in science and began his lifetime interest in art, literature, and music.  Like many in his community, he was drawn to the sea.He enrolled in 1950 at Harvard College, where he enjoyed courses in physics and math and played baritone horn with the Harvard Band.  During commencement week in 1953 Allan and his friends Edward Upton and Charles Lipson decided to write a set of nonsense Latin verses for “Ten Thousand Men of Harvard.”  Today when the Harvard Band sings one can occasionally still hear “Illigitimi non carborundum, Domine salvum fac regem.”  During Allan’s memorial service in Memorial Church the band sang his lyrics — he would have loved it.As Allan contemplated possible career directions in physics, he was guided by a desire to make a fundamental contribution to theory.  He began his dissertation research on nuclear shell theory, but midway through this work he was invited by Columbus O’Donnell Iselin, who was the Director of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution at the time, to join a regular discussion among a small group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology faculty and Woods Hole scientists who were attempting to reconcile ocean observations with fundamental physical processes.  Around this time, under the tutelage of George Carrier, Allan’s Ph.D. research was shifting to theoretical ocean processes.  This work was highly novel: only 14 prior publications are cited in his dissertation, and his studies led to more than half a dozen papers in prestigious scientific journals. After completing his Ph.D. Allan spent a year as a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at Cambridge University’s Cavendish Laboratory with luminaries in fluid dynamics such as G. I. Taylor and George Batchelor.  Allan returned to Harvard as an assistant professor in 1960 and was subsequently promoted to associate and then the Gordon McKay Professor of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics in 1968.In the early 1960s Allan’s elegant analysis of vorticity conservation over a sloping sea floor led to the discovery of continental shelf waves, a term he coined.  Next Allan spearheaded a number of ship-based explorations designed to study the performance of his ocean current models when compared to observed currents and water properties. With Henry Stommel he co-directed the Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment and co-chaired the US POLYMODE Organizing Committee, the latter of which involved extensive collaboration with Soviet physical oceanographers.  These studies provided the first comprehensive overview of turbulent ocean “weather” that is analogous to the high and low pressure systems that influence atmospheric weather.In the 1980s Allan launched a successful basin-scale modeling project of the eastern Mediterranean Sea that for the first time correctly depicted ocean current structures, which led to new research on the connections between ocean eddies and gyre circulation in the Mediterranean Sea.While theoretical studies employing elegant mathematics were always dear to Allan’s heart, he also thought that scientists have an obligation to address societal problems.  Allan’s understanding of the physics of eddies and his novel application of quantitative forecasting methods were highly valued by the U.S. Navy in its operational work relating to submarine detection.  He took pleasure in the deference paid him by military leaders, such as when they delivered via a navy submarine an instrument he needed on a research vessel.  Admiral Peter Cressy (Ret.) said, “From extensive personal observation . . . I can state . . . that [Professor Robinson’s] contributions were essential to our national defense and a key component of the successful conclusion of the cold war.”  In 1991 the Office of Naval Research awarded Allan its Distinguished Educator’s Award in Ocean Science, in recognition of his many contributions to national security.Allan served for many years as the editor of the journal Dynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans, and as editor-in-chief of the prestigious occasional series THE SEA, overseeing the production of six volumes.  He retired from teaching in 2002 and from his research professorship in 2007.  Over his professional career Allan wrote or edited over 150 research articles and books.  He was a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the American Geophysical Union and received honorary degrees from the University of Liege and the University of Massachusetts.  In recognition of his contributions to important societal problems, he received the Award for the Merits of Two Worlds from the European Institute of Cultural Integration.It would be fair to say that over the last half century no single physical oceanographer was more important than Allan in advancing the intellectual underpinning of interdisciplinary ocean science. In his later years he completed some of a projected series of influential papers on the theory of physical-biological interactions.  Allan’s sudden death was a shock to all who knew him.  He was as mentally active as ever, authoring papers, exploring new research ideas, and laying plans for new edited volumes.  His friends and close collaborators quite simply expected him to continue this way forever.  He is survived by his spouse, Marguerite; their three daughters, Sarah Penelope Robinson, Perrine Robinson-Geller, and Laura Ondine Robinson; six grandchildren; and his sister, Gladys Meltzer.Respectfully submitted,Frederick H.
