FTSE rally ends as Middle East fears resume

first_img Share FTSE rally ends as Middle East fears resume Rising tensions in the Middle East and shrinking appetite for risk caused stocks to give up ground today, ending a three-day rally.Poor UK economic data added to the market’s woes, with inflation and public borrowing hitting new highs. The FTSE 100 closed 0.4 per cent down at 5,762.71. “It is not too surprising that some of the enthusiasm towards shares has cooled off a little considering the bounce back seen over the past week,” said IG Index sales trader Yusuf Heusen. “With the initial euphoria gone, the uncertainty surrounding Japan and Libya is likely to act as cap to rallies for the short-term.”Rising unrest in Syria and Yemen now threatens both presidents there and pushed oil prices back up to $115.75 a barrel.Indian power company Essar Energy bounced back to the top of the risers board to close up 2.04 per cent at 449.4p after investors bought back in following a low day yesterday.Engineers, energy companies and insurers also buoyed the top of the index, with Cairn Energy finishing two per cent higher at 428p after reporting a return to profit in 2010, banking $577m (£355m) up from a $27m loss in 2009.Energy majors BG Group (up 1.6 per cent at 1,505.5p) and National Grid (1.3 per cent higher at 585.5p) also rebounded following falls yesterday.But car parts makers and sellers have suffered as the Japanese automotive industry remained at a standstill following the earthquake and tsunami.Toyota has said all 12 of its Japanese plants will stay closed until at least Saturday.The news has left auto parts maker GKN down 3.8 per cent to close at 189.1p, was the biggest blue-chip faller. Johnson Matthey which makes catalytic converters, fell 2.6 per cent to 1,835p, while mid-cap motor retailer Inchcape dropped 4.5 per cent.Cruise operator Carnival closed 3.1 per cent lower at 2,452p after posting disappointing first-quarter results hurt by high fuel prices. And travel firm TUI Travel also fell 1.9 per cent to 228.2p after its hopes of a rescue takeover by main shareholder TUI lost ground.US markets also declined on oil price worries after their three-day rally.The Dow Jones industrial average lost 17.90 points, or 0.15 per cent, to close at 12,018.63. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index dropped 4.61 points, or 0.36 per cent, to end at 1,293.77. The Nasdaq Composite Index shed 8.22 points, or 0.31 per cent, to finish 2,683.87 lower.

Canon Andrew White, the vicar of the only Anglican church in Baghdad, said it was “a major miracle” that a bus load of children returning from their First Communion were not killed in a double bomb attack.Canon White had first alerted his supporters across the Anglican Communion in Facebook and Twitter posts at around 1pm BST. At that time, he believed that some of the children had been killed.His post read, “The bus bringing the children back to St George’s from their First Communion class has been blown up. At the moment all we know is that there are dead and injured amongst the children. Please pray for them.”This prompted shocked comments and retweets from people around the world.One news report said the bomb blasts had killed 21 people. A later update by Canon White revealed that thankfully none of the children, nor their teachers, had been killed in the attack.“We are used to bad days, but today has been in a different league,” he wrote . “Central to our work and ministry here are our children. One of the biggest services of the year is when some of our children have their First Communion. This service takes place at the end of August. The children prepare everyday with about two hours of sessions. They all come to church in our bus and are then taken home.“As they were on their way home today, they were caught up in a major bomb. The bus was not too badly damaged and it continued its journey. All of the children started singing the Lord’s Prayer. As they were in the midst of their prayer a huge bomb exploded. All the glass of the windows shattered, people fell to the floor injured and one of the teachers was in a very bad way. They were all taken to hospital, but were all discharged as none of them had life threatening illnesses. In a normal country there is no way that some of the teachers would have been discharged. One person was hardly breathing and in profound shock. She was brought to the church and I looked after her until she was more stable. Only then could I leave to visit all the children.“It was wonderful seeing all the children, despite their injuries they were all smiling. Their parents however were not, some were in floods of tears on learning what happened. The fact is that today was miraculous. When you see the state of the bus it is simply a major miracle that nobody died or was more seriously injured. The children knew quite clearly why, they just kept telling me that they were alright because they were praying and G-d was with them. And He was.“Many tears were shed and there are huge things still to do as well as people who still need treatment. Please pray for us as we try and recover from another trauma.”Since becoming Anglican Chaplain in Iraq in 2005, the Reverend Canon Andrew White has been dubbed the “Vicar of Baghdad” by the media. He is also President of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East. He was previously Director of International Ministry at the International Centre for Reconciliation at Coventry Cathedral, England.His ministry in Iraq is part of the work of The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem & The Middle East, one of the Provinces of the Anglican Communion.

As an addition to the private lofts, part of the concept is to provide spaces for the inhabitants to meet and connect. This originates from the believe that a healthy social-life is essential for a high quality-of-life. According to these principles the communal spaces as lobby, staircase and hallways are designed as an extended part of one’s loft. Save this picture!© Studio de NooyerFocus of the main design concept for the interior of the lofts is the introduction of a 3D interior object containing a kitchen, a bathroom, storage space and a mezzanine with a double bed. The quality of the raw concrete structure of the existing building contrasts with the refined wooden interior objects. The co-existence of these different materials and textures captures the past and the present into a harmonic design which is both industrial and luxurious.Save this picture!© Studio de NooyerProject gallerySee allShow lessCanada’s Best Architecture of 2018 Recognized by Canadian Architect MagazineArchitecture NewsHow to Judge a Building: Does it Make you Feel More, Or Less Alive?ArticlesProject locationAddress:Maassluisstraat, 1062 Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Ethical records on top corporate donors published

first_imgVisitors to ECIS’ stand at Charity Fair 2005 exhibition were presented with a league table that highlighted the true ethical performance of the top corporate donors to charities.The league table was based upon the Ethiscores compiled by the organisation’s Corporate Critic database and the Directory of Social Change’s own table that appeared in its recent edition of ‘The Guide to UK Company Giving 2005’.Helen Middleton, Business Development Director at ECIS, said: “fundraisers were surprised if not alarmed to discover that some of the leading corporate donors didn’t always have the most ethical records. Accepting money directly, or embarking upon corporate sponsorship and marketing arrangements with the ‘wrong’ partner, could present long-term reputational problems for charities”.The portfolio of the top 25 Corporate Charitable donors includes organisations such as Unilever, Marks & Spencers and Northern Rock plc.In addition to this free listing, ECIS’ subscription-based Corporate Critic database is now available at a “substantially lowered” rate.The Top 10 UK Corporate Charitable DonorsRank Company Ethiscore1 Lloyds TSB Group plc 52 Northern Rock plc 13.53 The Royal Bank of Scotland plc 4.54 Barclays plc 1.55 Unilever UK 16 Diageo plc 87 HBOS plc 8.58= Ecclesiastical Insurance Group plc 12.58= Marks & Spencer 3.510 GlaxoSmithKline plc 3.5 Howard Lake | 26 May 2005 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

However, even the best pet may lash out if they are excessively harassed or challenged,” Marcia Mayeda of Animal Control and Care said. Your email address will not be published.

Drop-In Centers Working to Assist Hurricane-Impacted Texans

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Drop-In Centers Working to Assist Hurricane-Impacted Texans The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago It’s been six months since Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, but many residents in the South Texas area are still trying to recover from the storm’s impact. Post-storm mortgage delinquencies spiked as affected homeowners missed payments or worked to repair damages to their homes. This week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced that FEMA had allocated $1 billion for Texas coastal communities to put toward hazard mitigation against future storms, such as buying out flood-prone homes or repairing seawalls. But for many homeowners who watched their homes invaded by floodwaters, the recovery is much more personal, much more complicated, and often involves questions they simply don’t know the answers to.HOPE NOW Alliance, a nonprofit association of mortgage servicers and HUD-approved nonprofit housing counseling agencies, is working to help answer those questions. Partnering with the National Mortgage Servicing Association, HOPE NOW has announced it will be hosting a series of regularly scheduled drop-in center events where hurricane-affected residents can speak to professionals to learn how best to manage their own recovery and what resources are available to them.“The events are focused on key issues families are facing as they go through the rebuilding process so they can walk away with confidence and feeling supported on their next steps,” says Eric Selk, Executive Director of HOPE NOW Alliance.Participating mortgage servicers will include representatives from Ocwen, Wells Fargo, Mr. Cooper, Carrington, and Wells Fargo. Housing experts will include representatives from Fannie Mae, Texas Department of Insurance, and the FDIC.Attendees will receive insights into rebuilding options, available recovery and assistance programs, and how to spot and avoid scams. HOPE NOW has announced two such drop-in center events thus far:Tuesday, February 27, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Kingwood Community Center located at 4102 Rustic Woods Drive, Kingwood, Texas, 77339Wednesday, February 28, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Courtyard Marriott located at 25402 Katy Mills Parkway, Katy, Texas, 77494Ray Barbone, EVP Bank Operations, BankUnited and Chairman of the National Mortgage Servicing Association, says, “HOPE NOW was born out of the financial crisis as an alliance of mortgage market participants including servicers, counselors, investors and regulators. They played a vital role in assisting millions of borrowers with staying in their homes during the crisis. It is only natural that HOPE NOW extends that same assistance to the families and communities impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The NMSA is honored to partner with HOPE NOW in support of those efforts to assist families in need.”For more information on HOPE NOW Alliance, click here to explore the official website.Editor’s note: Texas Windstorm Insurance Association was originally included in the lineup of participating organizations, but they will not be a part of the lineup for these events. floods HOPE NOW HOPE NOW Alliance hurricane harvey hurricanes National Mortgage Servicing Association NMSA 2018-02-15 David Wharton Share Save Tagged with: floods HOPE NOW HOPE NOW Alliance hurricane harvey hurricanes National Mortgage Servicing Association NMSA Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Drop-In Centers Working to Assist Hurricane-Impacted Texans Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily February 15, 2018 1,971 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Journal, Loss Mitigation, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles About Author: David Wharton  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Freddie Mac Takes Q4 Hit Next: FEMA Aid for Some Displaced Puerto Ricans Running Out Subscribelast_img read more
