The FTSE 250-listed company, which recently completed a £950m refinancing, has asked JPMorgan, one of its corporate brokers, to gauge market appetite for acquiring the US housebuilder as the property market begins to show signs of stability.Taylor Wimpey said recently its subsidiary had an operating profit of £28.2m in the first half of 2010, with a focus on California, Arizona, Colorado, Texas and Florida. The firm said earlier this month it continued to buy land plots in the US and Canada, but did not expect to remain in the region long-term. The asking price for Taylor Morrison was unclear yesterday, but the branch’s landbank in the US alone was worth $559.6m (£359.8m) in August. “We have made no secret that in the next two or three years we intend to become a UK-focused company, and that we will be exiting the US,” chief executive Pete Redfern told City A.M. “But we are not in a position to announce anything soon.”The UK parent said earlier this month that profit for the year is likely to be at the top end of estimates thanks to stable sales and cost savings, but that the market outlook remains uncertain. Some US analysts were unsure that Taylor Morrison makes an attractive takeover target. “My guess is we’re not going to see a lot of strong bids,” said Stifel Nicolaus analyst Mike Widner. “The builders all have plenty of cash on their balance sheets but the future is not crystal-clear right now in terms of volume of sales and how far home prices are going to fall.” Show Comments ▼center_img Monday 29 November 2010 8:53 pm Taylor hangs for sale sign on US branch whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldlast_img read more

The Tiburon Bay View residence is a classic and inspiring abode that embodies the contemporary through its clean lines and modern designs. Nestled on an east facing bluff of the Tiburon Peninsula, the two-story home looks out onto the San Francisco Bay while the west side of the property provides a natural buffer from the road and neighboring houses. The secluded home was crafted to accommodate visiting friends and a multi-generational family environment, offering a harmonious balance between private spaces to relax and retreat and public spaces for entertaining and communal activities.Save this picture!© Laure JolietWalker Warner Architects utilized the entire site to develop the feeling of a compound rather than a stand-alone building. In order to maximize the natural beauty and foliage surrounding the property, the firm implemented “horizontal” architecture that integrates into the terraced landscape. Deep overhangs further minimize the structure’s height and help elongate its horizontal shape, while asymmetrical window and door arrangements highlight the modern aspects of the residence and provide a rhythm underneath the unifying roof. The unique design of the residence derives from the client’s appreciation for art, translating into bold architectural components that convey the element of surprise through unexpected spaces. Although the property sits on a steep slope, the firm was able to create a gracious and inviting entry, as well as fluid indoor to outdoor connections from all main living spaces. The main entrance sits a half-level below the upper and is complete with broad stairs, a sunken garden and compelling red door to draw guests into the entryway.Save this picture!© Laure JolietSave this picture!© Laure JolietSave this picture!© Laure JolietUnconventionally, the upper level includes an auto court and family entrance, while all living spaces expand the bottom floor and flow easily out to the pool and lawn. Various spaces also include a family room, guest sitting room in the guest wing, living and dining rooms for formal entertaining, and a great room for casual family entertaining.Save this picture!© Laure JolietProject gallerySee allShow lessUNStudio Creates Urban Vision for Hilversum’s Media ParkArchitecture NewsSafdie Architects Announce Design for Fractalized Residential Tower in QuitoArchitecture News Share United States Tiburon Bay View / Walker Warner Architects “COPY” SCDA & Strata Landscape Architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/901371/tiburon-bay-view-walker-warner-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Tiburon Bay View / Walker Warner ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTiburon Bay View / Walker Warner Architects Photographscenter_img Builder: Houses Van Acker Construction Lighting Design: Eric Johnson Associates Year:  CopyHouses•Marin County, United States Photographs:  Laure Joliet Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/901371/tiburon-bay-view-walker-warner-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeWalker Warner ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMarin CountyUnited StatesPublished on September 07, 2018Cite: “Tiburon Bay View / Walker Warner Architects” 07 Sep 2018.

April 29 protesters tell restaurant bosses: ‘What’s outrageous – poverty wages!’

first_imgWW photo: Joseph PietteWashington, D.C. –It was rainy, windy and cold, but this didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of dozens of protesters gathered outside the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., on April 29 to tell the National Restaurant Association, “We can’t survive on $7.25!”   A number of passersby, in cars and on foot, gave the protesters a big thumbs up.The NRA represents all of the million-dollar, fast-food chains, including Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts, 7-Eleven, Aramark Corporation, Darden Restaurants and over 100 more.  The average hourly “earnings” of the CEOs of these corporations is $11,700!  The protest took place while the NRA was holding an awards banquet, wining and dining on expensive foods and champagne. Many of the fast-food restaurant owners scurried like rats past protesters to seek protection from the Homeland Security police who were guarding the building.  In effect, the public were footing the security bill.Some other CEOs taunted demonstrators and openly expressed disdain for the low-wage protesters only to see the demonstration move ever closer to the building’s doors.Speaking in support of a wage increase for low-wage workers, Larry Holmes with the New York Peoples Power Assembly stated: “If we were giving out awards tonight, it would be for the greediest CEO on the planet.  We represent more than 40 million workers who can’t be here tonight to confront these millionaires and billionaires, but some day they will.“These privileged elite are used to ordering people around so they may not be aware that their workers are getting organized and will become the tidal wave that drowns them.”The protest was organized by the Baltimore “We Deserve Better” Workers Assembly to keep up the pressure for an increase in the minimum wage to $15 an hour and to expose the NRA’s anti-minimum wage lobbying operation.  Participants came from as far away as New York and Philadelphia.BWA organizer Sharon Black told Workers World, “The NRA is meeting in the Ronald Reagan International Convention Center, a federal building, because they’re so hated they felt that their conference needed the extra protection that they’ll get from the government because of the venue.”Black noted, “The National Restaurant Association’s conference this year is devoted to lobbying and strategizing against any efforts to raise restaurant workers or any other low-paid workers’ wages.”Workers, youth speak truth to powerOne day after the protest, a bill to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 was defeated in the U.S. Senate despite polls showing 63 percent of people in the U.S. support a minimum wage hike.Fast-food worker Daniella Longchamp, also an organizer with BWA, described the sub-minimum wages of $3.25 and the sexual harassment she endured at age 16 during her two-year stint at Papa John’s Pizza.  Longchamp directed her remarks at the NRA members rushing into the building: “We are coming back and getting what’s ours.  We are not going to keep making profits for you.”BWA member Beth Emmerling stated that 60 percent of fast-food workers and two-thirds of tipped workers are women, half of whom are single mothers. “Children are being hurt because the CEO of Taco Bell, who makes $22 million a year, doesn’t want to pay a living wage to his workers.”Other speakers included Super Shuttle worker/organizer Tony Yovo with UFCW Local 1994, fired from his job for union organizing; Bill Preston, president of AFGE Local 17; laid-off worker Brandon Wallace and homeless activist Lee Patterson, both from Baltimore; and retired Philadelphia postal worker Joe Piette, who noted that the bosses try to pit low-wage workers against unionized workers. “Anyone who is in a union today needs to get involved in supporting the low-wage worker movement to keep all wages from being driven down.” Occupy DC members came out in support.Caleb Maupin with Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) described the capitalist system’s transition to a state of permanent low wages with millions of underemployed and unemployed youth.  “They build prisons, close schools and put cops in schools.  They are intent on breaking low-wage workers down to replace them with the next batch of workers vying for part-time, minimum wage jobs. They put cops on every corner to beat youth down.“They tell us to hate Russia, hate China, hate Iran, but I hate the bosses in this building. The capitalist system is based on making profits for a few wealthy individuals. The way out is for a peoples’ movement that fights against police brutality and against wars abroad.  It’s the same fight as the struggle for union wages, the fight against the 1 percent. It’s time for working people to seize control.  We built this world and we should own it.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF warns journalists about Chinese propaganda app that may spy on them

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more October 24, 2019 RSF warns journalists about Chinese propaganda app that may spy on them China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison PHOTO: REUTERS News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) warns journalists about Chinese President Xi Jinping’s propaganda app, which could be used as a spying tool for the regime. The mobile app “Study Xi, strengthen the country”, a vehicle for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s propaganda, could have backdoors enabling the execution of commands and the collection of personal information without the user’s knowledge. According to an analysis published last month by German cybersecurity firm Cure 53, the application that is designed by e-commerce giant Alibaba for the Chinese Communist Party has the capability to modify files, download apps, make phone calls and turn on the device’s microphone, among other threatening features.”We highly recommend journalists to avoid downloading this app that can compromise their security and that of their sources,” insists Cédric Alviani, head of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia Bureau. “If it is absolutely necessary to install it, we advise to do so on a specific device dedicated to this sole purpose and which does not contain any sensitive information.”By the end of this year, Chinese journalists will be required to pass a mandatory loyalty test on the President and the Party’s teachings through this application in order to obtain or renew their press credentials.Released last February, this smartphone app provides access to a wide array of propaganda documents and tests the user’s understanding of the regime’s propaganda with a game-like system of points and rewards. According to the Open Technology Fund, the number of downloads may have already reached 600 million.China fell this year to the 177th rank out of 180 countries and territories in the RSF World Press Freedom Index, only two places ahead of North Korea.
