The broker has raised its earnings per share forecast for 2010 to reflect currency benefits, and said sales in emerging markets are performing well. INTERTEKMorgan Stanley downgrades Intertek to “underweight” citing its “full” valuation. Believes earnings growth is unlikely to return to its previous highs given the muted economic recovery and believes its current price to earnings ratio is unattractive. Suggests Aggreko, which it rates “buy” as a better bet.VIVENDIExecution Noble rates the media giant a “hold” with a fair value price of €20. The broker says the main obstacle to upgrading the shares is the lacklustre growth of cash-flow, which is set to decline to €1.8bn this year. However, it has raised its target price from €19.50 to factor in lower prospective liability in the firm’s US class action lawsuit.

The residential project comprising eight wooden houses at Vila Taguaí, located 22 km from the centre of São Paulo, is a property development that was conceived as an innovative alternative, building new living spaces amongst the greenery of the city’s suburbs.Save this picture!Master PlanThe site is placed among dense vegetation on an East facing, 35% slope and the implantation sought to maintain the natural terrain to the greatest extent possible. The eight houses are elevated off the ground, creating terrace gardens. The trees were preserved and new ones will be planted, reinforcing the native flora.Save this picture!© João XavierThe road network is finished in cobblestones, maintaining soil permeability. Private areas are integrated with communal ones – a large garden – through the use of terraces and pedestrian walkways.+ 67The buildings make the most of natural sunlight and ventilation and utilise solar energy for water heating. The area surrounding the project must be preserved – rainwater runoff is collected and directed to an existing stream. Sewage and wastewater is treated in a plant located within the condominium for subsequent use in toilets and irrigation.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciWood is the best performing material as regards the two big issues of this century: energy and the environment. Its production requires only solar energy and, furthermore, managed forests help offset greenhouse gas emissions and generate quality jobs in rural areas, mitigating migration to large cities as well as promoting the economic development of producing regions.Using wood from sustainably managed forests in the Amazon region with a well thought out methodology, this project’s premise was to find innovative, low cost, easily implemented technology.Save this picture!© ITA – Prototype photosClose collaboration between the Engineering and Architectural sides enabled productive research into the method adopted, comprising wood panels used in the construction of walls and floor and roof slabs.The 10 cm strip modular system used for panel production enables them to come in widths of between 20 cm and 300 cm and heights varying from 100 cm to 550 cm. The reasoning behind this design is to allow the use of small, solid wood parts whilst still meeting requirements for a variety of architectural designs. The final dimensions of each panel facilitate pre-fabrication in the workshop, storage and transport to the site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Cristina Xavier – Photos of workLocal labour can be quickly trained for production and assembly, in workshops and at sites, thus reducing the constrictive situation inherent with a need for skilled workers.The panel system elaborated for this project combines industrialisation with flexibility, and can be applied at a variety of scales and is easily adaptable to local conditions without necessitating significant start-up investment. Its use is characterised by a reduced environmental impact, extremely low rates of waste production, low labour costs, fast construction times and tighter budgetary control.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe eight houses, based around three different floor plans with built areas ranging from 129-173m², available in single or two storey variations, create multifunctional spaces in compact residences, and allowed the construction system to be tested. The units all have direct access to the living room and terrace level.The architectural design prioritised the use of natural cross ventilation, with the largest openings facing North or East, and the smaller ones facing West. This controls the insulation whilst allowing natural sunlight into the environments and creating the chimney effect.As the houses are built of wood and elevated off the ground, they have good thermal performance and avoid damp seeping up from the soil, not to mention creating a shaded terrace next to the gardens.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe roof design includes an alwitra membrane and provides wide eaves, whilst thermal insulation comes from polystyrene sheets affixed to the panels. Suitable acoustic insulation between storeys was achieved by adding a 5 cm deep cement slab to the floor panels.Sewage and wastewater is collected and treated at a subterranean plant located within the site, proportioning treated water for use in toilets and irrigation that results in water consumption being reduced by 30%.Save this picture!DiagramThe rainwater collection system was designed to channel runoff toward the natural, existing stream.Each unit, as well as the communal areas, have joint plumbing and electrical inspection chambers that allow for future infrastructure installations and maintenance.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciNote: This project was originally publish on September 29, 2014.Project gallerySee allShow lessConchas Residence / Gui MattosSelected ProjectsFoster + Partners Design a House of Wisdom for Judah’s Scroll in SharjahArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeCristina Xavier ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousingCarapicuíbacollective livingIcebergCarapicuibaBrazilPublished on April 24, 2019Cite: “Vila Taguai / Cristina Xavier Arquitetura” 24 Apr 2019.

New rules and fines introduced for face-to-face fundraising The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) has this week introduced a new best practice regime for street fundraisers. The new rules are accompanied by penalty points and fines for fundraising organisations that break the rules.The rules have been introduced following a year-long field trial and review process, after the Institute of Fundraising had asked the PFRA to provide extra ./guidance to the Institute’s code of practice on face-to-face fundraising. They are published in the PFRA Rule Book (Street F2F).The new rules provide more detailed ./guidance. For instance, while the code of practice says only that fundraisers must never “deliberately confuse or obstruct the public”, the Rule Book defines obstruction as: “Any deliberate action that causes a person to involuntarily stop or suddenly changedirection in order to get past the fundraiser and continue their journey.”The rules carry penalty points of 20, 50 or 100 points, and apply to fundraising organisations whether they are agencies or charities running in-house teams. When a fundraising organisation’s points total exceeds 1,000 points, that total is converted to a monetary fine on the basis of £1 per point. Further breaches are invoiced, at £1 per point each month.Sally de la Bedoyere, chief executive of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association, said: “For a form of fundraising that is so regularly in the limelight, it is vitally important that fundraisers work to the highest possible standards in order to maintain the confidence of the public, media, and central and local government.“These new rules complement the Institute of Fundraising’s code of practice on face- to-face fundraising, which sets the benchmarks for best practice across all forms of fundraising. This is a prime example of how sector bodies can co-operate to drive up standards and improve compliance with the codes.”www.pfra.org.uk Tagged with: face-to-face Individual giving Law / policy PFRA 39 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
