Bond prices rose on the premise of more “quantitative easing” from the Fed, while the dollar extended losses against the yen on the prospect the Fed will need to print more money.The economy is experiencing a slow recovery by historical standards, with unemployment at 9.6 per cent and Americans increasingly nervous about the future.That is expected to shift the country’s political landscape in Tuesday’s congressional elections, seen as a vote on President Barack Obama’s performance on the economy. His Democratic party is expected to suffer big losses.The US central bank cut overnight interest rates to near zero in December 2008 and has bought about $1.7 trillion (£1.06 trillion) worth of Treasury and mortgage-related debt since then.

John Dyson, national operations director at Mecca Bingo, said: “We’re expecting this to be the year of bingo, and we’re coming back in style. People are going to expect a lot more from their leisure spend and are keen to find new social experiences that are value for money and packed with entertainment.  The Covid-19 pandemic forced retail venues across the country to close last year. A phased re-opening began in July last year after the government initially eased coronavirus restrictions. However, operators were forced to close again, first in regional restrictions then in a new national lockdown as 2021 began.

Julian Savea scores a brace as All Blacks win comfortably vs Argentina

first_imgSunday Sep 7, 2014 Julian Savea scores a brace as All Blacks win comfortably vs Argentina Julian Savea scored a brace of tries to take his tally to 26 in just 25 matches as the All Blacks beat Argentina 28-9 in Napier on Saturday. Los Pumas were highly competitive but a few key turning points allowed the home side to get a comfortable win. Refereeing was a source of contention again this weekend, as the first Rugby Championship match of the day featured two key moments that had commentators, fans and pundits questioning how the officials managed to get them so wrong.The first was early in the match, when powerful wing Savea was held back without the ball, and then later on with the score still close, Argentina’s Leonardo Senatore charged down a kick, regathered and scored the try, but it was disallowed.“There are things that happen in a game unfortunately,” said captain Agustin Creevy post match.You have to feel for the Pumas in particular, who were playing well away from home and could have been in with a chane in wet weather conditions if that try was given.As it was, the All Blacks continued their dominance with a four-try victory and despite a poor kicking performance by Beauden Barrett, who was starting at number 10 for the first time in a Test, they scored through Liam Messam and Aaron Smith, as well as a try to Savea in each half.“From a scrummaging point of view we should be very proud.” said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen. “We sometimes get underestimated at scrum time by others and tonight we scored a try right on half-time from their ball.”Injuries to flanker Messam and lock Sam Whitelock, and perhaps Barrett’s kicking at goal, will be the only real concerns ahead of next weekend’s Wellington Test against South Africa.Your thoughts on the match?

Architecture has an influence on nature, and nature has an influence on our architecture. Art also influences our architecture. A sculpture forms the basis of this residential volume. In our quest for buildability, affordability, circular, energetic, and economic efficiency, we allow ourselves to be guided by geometric abstraction. Circle and square become form-retaining elements in masonry in volume. They form the basic structure that supports the roof.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!Isometric diagramSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe wooden structure of the insulated volume perforates with surgical precision these massive volumes, creating an alternation of enclosed and open outdoor spaces. The brick volumes carry the solid concrete roof between the volumes, in the brick volumes the wall, floor, and roof are made of wood. The hybrid way of building uses each material with its specific qualities and ensures a high-performance way of building. In addition to the performance, the hybrid permanent structure ensures different experiences, atmospheres, sounds. Structure and materialization are reduced to the essence.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe brick volumes include the private and serving functional spaces such as the sleeping quarters, yoga room, bathroom, storage room, and entrance. These spaces are related to an enclosed outdoor space. The space between the volumes is open and equally oriented to each side, no front, side, or rear sides but rather east, south, west, and north.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertIntermediate spaces are created inside and outside, but all open in relation to the environment.
