However, the 2009 results were warped in the final months due to tax credits for first time buyers, which caused a rush of new sales.And new vehicle sales are also on the up. In November 873,323 cars and small trucks were sold in the US, 17 per cent more than at the same time the previous year.But there was bad news for the US, as jobless claims went up. An extra 26,000 claimants signed on in the week ending 27 November, the labour department reported. Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share KCS-content Thursday 2 December 2010 7:29 pm Tags: NULL

Colin McGowan, chief executive of Scottish Premier League club Hamilton Academical F.C., has proposed an amnesty in which anyone involved involved in Scottish professional football suffering from gambling-related harm could come forward for treatment. Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: People Sports betting Hamilton Accies propose Scottish football gambling amnesty AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Colin McGowan, chief executive of Scottish Premier League club Hamilton Academical F.C., has proposed an amnesty in which anyone involved involved in Scottish professional football suffering from gambling-related harm could come forward for treatment.Under his plan, any individual that self-reported for gambling on football, or for having accounts with bookmakers in a defined timescale, would automatically be handed a 16-game ban by the Scottish Football Association (SFA), with no financial penalty.The ban would be suspended for 3 years, while the individuals would also give an undertaking to close any gambling accounts they may have.They would also be granted anonymity under McGowan’s plan.While McGowan acknowledged that the SFA must adhere to Fifa rules prohibiting gambling, he pointed out that punishments are created by the local footballing authorities, rather than by the international governing body. This meant that it could conceivably change any punishment during the amnesty.Explaining his reasoning for the amnesty, McGowan said that while he understood why the SFA enforces a prohibition on betting to protect the integrity of the game, few of those actually violating this ban were ever charged.“The main reason for this is regardless of which country of the world you are in, it would appear no footballing body [is] proactive in catching offenders,” he explained. “That said, on the mental health side there are those caught up in the horrors of addictive gambling, and the personal and social consequences that comes with this disease/illness of addiction.”These individuals, he continued, were not simply defying the betting rules, and instead were victims of their habit. He said that following Hamilton head coach Brian Rice’s admission that he had breached SFA betting rules on multiple occasions – for which he was handed a 10-match ban – former and current players had contacted the club to discuss their problems.“Obviously I hope you understand that these proposals and ideas are put forward mainly for the protection of the players and ultimately for the benefit to their families,” he said in conclusion. “They also without doubt protect the integrity of the game. In essence one of the true realities is, if nothing changes, nothing changes.”iGamingBusiness.com has contacted the SFA for its reaction to McGowan’s proposal, but is yet to hear back.

If I was a smarter man I would have been investing since I was old enough to hold down a paper round. Hindsight is always 20/20. But FTSE 100 investors are now facing the buying opportunity of a lifetime.One investor’s stock market crash is another’s chance to buy bargains, and those chances don’t come around very often. Most investors have fled into low-yield bonds or cashed out entirely, and that’s where our chance to strike comes.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…Choose FTSE 100 stocks you can hold for years and you’ll see the greatest benefit. I think a solid start would be Royal Dutch Shell, with its 11% yield and share price that is 42% cheaper than two months ago. Or Legal & General, with its growing revenues and profits. The FTSE 100 insurer’s price-to-earnings ratio – a measure of value – has dropped from 10.3 to 6.3 in just three weeks. It offers a 10% yield and its share price is 38.2% cheaper than it was in February.Most high-yield companies offering plentiful dividends are now cheaper to buy than they have been at any point in the last 10 years. If you can screen out the noise and invest £5k or £10k in the best-quality companies you will get them at bargain prices.What the richest doIt’s at times like this that I like to consult the greats. They are the ones who showed me the path to greater wealth and got me investing in the first place.Bill Miller is an American investing giant and chief investment officer best known for his outstanding portfolio management of the Legg Mason Capital Management Value Trust.Under his stewardship the trust consistently beat the S&P 500’s returns for 24 years in a row.He said in a recent CNBC interview: “There have been four great buying opportunities in my adult lifetime. The first was in 1973 and 1974, the second was in 1982, the third was in 1987, and the fourth was in 2008 and 2009. And this is the fifth one.”The FTSE 100 is now 35% down from where it was at the start of 2020. Despite the bear markets after the 1987 crash, the dotcom bubble and the financial crisis, the market it has always recovered and gone even higher.Events take a turnMost true value investing opportunities come around as a result of global macro events. They push down the share prices of big companies to a point where they are actually affordable for private investors like you and me. And there is a dual benefit for long-term buy and hold investors here.As well as collecting massive dividend payments year over year, the 2020 stock market crash will provide you with capital share price improvements as the market stabilises in the years ahead.A portfolio that returns 10% a year will double your money in just seven years. And with some share prices on the FTSE 100 now up to 50% cheaper than they were two months ago, that kind of return is now much more viable.Looking ahead to 2027 might be tricky. But when it rolls around and your portfolio of good companies bought at knock-down prices is really singing, you’ll praise your past self for making good decisions.In normal times, great profit only comes at great risk. But these are not normal times. FTSE 100 investors have an unprecedented opportunity right now. Don’t waste this chance. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Godly people are on both sides. We should be praying for a solution that is inclusive. There are CANA churches that are thriving, The history of the Falls Church needs to be considered.

Property August 14, 2013 at 8:32 am There is a tremendous irony in Shannon Johnston’s complaints about litigation, given the highly litigious nature of Dr. Schori and her legal team at 815.It’s time for 815 to realize that there are increasing numbers of members who can no longer deal with the heterodoxy of TEC. An orderly process is needed in order to minister effectively to those members and parishes who are led by God to leave. The alternative will be, in many cases, congregations whose property is divested and sold by the denomination and parishes who must forsake generations of history and giving in order to remain faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

CANA Falls Church has been denied at every level. It is time to stop and focus on their future. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Submit a Job Listing [Episcopal Diocese of Virginia press release] The leaders of a Falls Church, Virginia congregation that broke away from the Episcopal Church said this week that they plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Falls Church CANA congregation will ask the high court to overturn the Supreme Court of Virginia’s April 18 ruling in favor of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. That state ruling upheld a 2012 decision that allowed The Falls Church Episcopal to return to its historic church home.An earlier appeal by the CANA group to the Supreme Court of Virginia for reconsideration of its unanimous decision was denied in June.“It is unfortunate that this litigation continues,” said Diocese of Virginia Bishop Shannon S. Johnston. “Nonetheless, we remain committed to focusing our energies on the work of the church. The Falls Church Episcopal continues to grow and thrive, and we all look forward to a time when we can put these issues behind us for good.”Those sentiments were echoed by the Rev. John Ohmer, rector of The Falls Church Episcopal. “We will continue to focus not on the past, but on growing our present and future ministries,” said Ohmer.The CANA congregation has until Sept. 12 to file its petition for appeal. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make a decision on whether to hear the appeal toward the end of this year or the beginning of 2014.

Shaila Patel House is built on a plot area of 2263 m2. The brief was to design a house with a possibility where three generations could live together as one unit, while also allowing independent domains for each. Therefore, the core design focus was to create an interesting interplay of private spaces with that of the living spaces which would permit one part of the family to have privacy, while the other part of the family would be actively using the living spaces.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe building uses natural brick and exposed concrete as the basic external finish with plastered walls in the internal spaces. The house is spatially organized on three levels. There are four bedrooms, one main living area, family living and dining areas with large veranda facing the backyard garden and a party lounge with home theatre in the basement. The house is oriented with all openings facing north and south and more solid surfaces facing east and west.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe entrance court is accessed from the street which has parking garages, security cabin, access to the rear garden and access to the servant quarters. The north facing entrance porch welcomes one into the house through the double height vestibule. Once inside, one is surprised with the view of the garden. This view is accentuated by the presence of a linear water body and plants guiding the view to the outside while the space allows for a pause point at the entrance into the house. The vestibule connects to a corridor which is oriented east -west with spaces flanking on either side facing south or north.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe ground floor has two major domains. On the left is a private living area connected to the bedroom with both spaces opening onto a private courtyard and a veranda facing the main garden. On the right are the living areas including the kitchen and other utilities. The main living area is a double height space which opens onto the garden on the south through a large veranda and has a smaller living space facing the north. The dining space has an open wooden deck accessed through a small veranda facing the garden.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaSave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaThe staircase is located centrally with access to the basement and the bedrooms on the first floor. The basement has a family lounge and a home theatre which opens out into a sunken courtyard with a separate access from the ground floor. This courtyard provides natural light and ventilation to the basement spaces making them comfortable providing a break out space for the activities. The first floor has three bedrooms with a study and a separate spiral staircase to access the service terraces. The master bedroom opens onto the south facing garden through a large balcony. The rest of the bedrooms open on to the north façade with large openings.Save this picture!© Dhrupad ShuklaProject gallerySee allShow lessFengyang Road Alleyway-house Gallery Office / Atelier ZerosSelected ProjectsThe Bar Ji / Daylab studioSelected Projects Share Photographs ArchDaily India Projects CopyHouses•Ahmedabad, India Save this picture!© Dhrupad Shukla+ 18Curated by Clara Ott Share Shaila Patel House / Groundwork Architecture “COPY” 2017 Architects: Groundwork Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Structure: CopyAbout this officeGroundwork ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAhmedabadIndiaPublished on May 18, 2019Cite: “Shaila Patel House / Groundwork Architecture” 17 May 2019.

International Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 3, with 1,800 workers out on strike for more than a year, thought they were so close to a contract, they had stopped picketing Charter/Spectrum.Then this $41 billion company, one of the largest multichannel cable service providers in the U.S., walked away from the bargaining table Nov. 30 because IBEW refused to accept major punishing takeaways.The union picket lines started up again Dec. 3, and the New York Central Labor Council called a mass rally Dec. 5.The rally drew a solid thousand workers to protest at the Spectrum office on East 23rd Street. There a number of labor union leaders spoke in support of IBEW Local 3. Also present was Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who pointed out that Spectrum is in violation of the license agreement which allows it to operate in New York.Daily picketing continues. (For locations see tinyurl.com/yapqthzu.) Supporters are needed to attend rallies as they are in a better legal position than union members to speak out against scabbing and for boycotting the company. The statewide AFL-CIO has launched a boycott campaign, Cut the Cord Spectrum. (tinyurl.com/y88nk3o5)Meanwhile, cable technicians are leading campaigns to promote a publicly owned cable option (tinyurl.com/y8hmjgnz) and to get actor Ellen DeGeneres to stop being in Spectrum commercials.
