BlackRock fund manager Evy Hambro, who holds a number of Glencore’s convertible bonds, confirmed last week that he is expecting the IPO to get off the ground in the second quarter of this year.Analysts were also given a deadline of last Friday to complete their notes after a series of investor meetings by Glencore chief executive Ivan Glasenberg.

No savings at 40? This is what I would do

first_img If you have reached 40 years of age with nothing put aside for retirement, there’s no need to panic. It is never too late to start saving for the future.As long as you have a set saving and investment plan in place, it is relatively straightforward to build a sizeable nest egg from a standing start between the age of 40 and retirement. Here’s how. 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…A savings planSaving for the future is a daunting task for many. Moreover, sometimes life just gets in the way. Going without today while saving for retirement does not seem like a sensible trade-off.As a result, millions of people struggle to save for retirement. Nevertheless, it has never been easier to build a substantial nest egg than it is today.The first thing you should do if you are serious about saving for retirement is open a SIPP. These are one of the best tools available to pension savers at the moment.Contributions to one of these tax-efficient savings wrappers will be entitled to tax relief at your marginal tax rate. That is 20% for basic rate taxpayers. You can contribute up to £40,000 a year.Even if you are not earning, you can put away a maximum of £2,880 a year and still receive tax relief. The tax relief is added to your contributions. So, for someone contributing £2,880 a year and receiving tax relief of 20%, the taxman will add £720 a year to take the total up to £3,600 gross.This can be a massive help if you are trying to build a substantial nest egg in a short period. In addition to these tax benefits, any income or capital gains earned on money saved inside a SIPP is tax-free.However, you will have to pay tax when you withdraw the money. Still, you can build up your savings without having to worry about significant tax liabilities.Making money in the marketInvesting in the stock market through a SIPP is the best way to turbocharge the growth of your savings.The FTSE 250 has produced an average annual return for investors of around 12% since its inception 30 years ago. At this rate of return, a saver putting away £240 a month or £3,600 a year after tax relief (£300 a month in total) would be able to accrue a pension pot worth £570,000 over the space of 25 years.This will be enough to produce an income of roughly £22,800 a year in retirement.Including the State Pension of £8,762 a year, this pot could yield a total pre-tax income of £31,567 a year.Therefore, if you have hit 40 with no savings set aside for the future, this strategy of putting away a little bit every month, and investing in the FTSE 250 could help you build a sizeable financial nest egg in a relatively small amount of time.

Facebook, the new town square

first_img [Religion News Service] Even though I use Facebook frequently, I doubt my usage pattern will justify a $100 billion valuation for the company or send a new crop of Silicon Valley paper millionaires to Ferrari dealerships.I never click on sidebar ads, I immediately block all games, and I have no intention of using Facebook’s virtual money. I’ve done some advertising — to little effect — and will do more, but not much.On the other hand, I find Facebook intriguing, sobering and oddly encouraging. To me, Facebook is an intriguing window on the world. It’s the raw stuff of human diversity, not filtered through self-serving politicians or media summaries. When I decided to “friend” people whose views differ from mine, little did I know how much we differ.Name an issue — say, the recent dust-up over breast cancer funding for Planned Parenthood — and I read not only the rage and indignation of fervent extremes, but deep divisions within the sensible middle. The hope that we could find common ground by moving to the middle could be delusional. Divisions are still there, but maybe they’re just calmer.The things people care about cover a much broader landscape than I normally see. I expected pet photos and event promotions, but charts showing people’s different names for soft drinks? A 90-year-old couple playing ragtime at a health clinic? A boy feeling President Obama’s hair? A hint for naming a band?It’s all very intriguing. Not appalling or worrisome, just intriguing. We are all quite different. And not shy about expressing it.Yet there’s also something sobering about Facebook content. I wonder what happens to these kaleidoscopic expressions. I see a few comments, sometimes even brief dialogues. But mostly I see people blurting a thought, and then nothing follows. I suspect they hoped for more.When an exchange does occur, it can turn saccharine or nasty — and needy. People want to be heard and yet don’t value listening. That suggests a deeper isolation and loneliness than perhaps we recognize.I also see more and more images — photos, charts, cartoons, posters — and fewer words. It’s good for getting attention, of course, but strangely inarticulate, as if someone wanted to express an opinion but lacked the words or self-confidence to do so.Why, then, do I find Facebook encouraging?I am encouraged when people want to express themselves. So much energy goes into shutting us down. Given a venue for self-expression, people step up  That’s encouraging.I am encouraged that people risk disagreeing. Finding a low-passion center does little for us if it means stifling our passions. Dreamers, visionaries, eccentrics, nuts, entrepreneurs and artists are cut from the same cloth, and it’s a good thing when we wave that flag of uniqueness and passion. That’s encouraging, too.I am also encouraged that despite the coarsening of political discourse, people still care about their society and are willing to speak out. We haven’t left the public square to the shouters and ideologues. That is especially encouraging.I don’t see how any of this will make money for Facebook’s new investors. I suspect they will find a way to kill the goose. But for as long as we have it, Facebook is intriguing. And sobering. And encouraging.— Tom Ehrich is a writer, church consultant and Episcopal priest based in New York. He is the author of   “Just Wondering, Jesus” and founder of the Church Wellness Project.

Some of them agree with my views, some disagree. When I see the expressions it makes me realize that my thoughts are not the be all and end all of an issue. As a pastor, I have to listen to the people who disagree with me and love them anyway. Facebook has helped me do that. It’s also an amazing marketing tool for events and for driving the curious seeker to our website. (That content is another matter….) All in all, Tom, I agree with you.

In a joint statement issued to mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the two primates of the Church of England, Justin Welby and John Sentamu, reflect on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. They say that while it directly contributed to “great blessings” felt by many Christians, it also caused “lasting damage . . . to the unity of the Church, in defiance of the clear command of Jesus Christ to unity in love.”Full article.last_img read more

It is set in a hilly terrain and is surrounded by a dense expanse of forest characteristic of this mountainous region. The lot is located on a rocky hill covered with spruce and birch. It is bounded to the east by the main road and to the west by the owners’ horse farm. The clients wanted a volume with views largely oriented towards the horses’ riding arena below. At the same time, they wanted to take advantage of the intimacy created by the topography of the lot. The forested berm between the road and house creates a visual filter, allowing a sequential progression towards the building. The volume is not visible from the main road below,but gradually emerges, culminating in the imposing facade of opaque brick with a single off-centered arch. This is the main entrance to the house.Save this picture!© Juliette BuschOrganization and perceptual narrativeThe client’s marked interest in American minimalist painters, along with the presence of her ceramics studio, influenced the composition of the floor plan and the interconnection of simple geometric shapes in the design of the interior volumes. European stables and horse-breeding centres were among the references explored during the initial design phase. The house is designed in an asymmetrical V plan connecting two distinct areas: a wing for the garage and the client’s ceramics studio, and a wing for the common living areas. The various spaces are interconnected in such a way as to create a perceptual narrative for users and visitors, who experience alternating sensations of compression and expansion. The sensorial presence of simple raw materials (brick, lime, oiled oak) helps to create a tranquil atmosphere.Save this picture!© Maxime DesbiensSave this picture!Cross Section ASave this picture!© Juliette BuschFrom the entrance arch, the sequence marks a division between the service areas, the artist’s studio, and the more intimate family space. The curved corridor forms a threshold between the two wings. Its lowered ceiling produces a sensation of darkening and narrowing, which starkly contrasts with the expansive volume and light of the main room at the end (interesting chiaroscuro effect). Here, high, inclined ceilings are divided by two vertical veils that partition the kitchen, dining room and living room without compartmentalizing the volume. The gazebo marks a fluid extension from the interior towards the exterior.Save this picture!© Maxime DesbiensProportions and materiality of the voidWide, yet relatively low openings carefully frame the views towards the horses’ arena. The varying proportions create an interesting tension between the interior volume and the landscape. Vast skylights oriented towards the east direct light towards the lime-covered vertical veils and also permit natural ventilation of the main volume. These hollow volumes create a bright, luminous atmosphere, lending a sacred quality to the space. A third “light cannon” in the ceramics studio directs zenithal light into the room. The inclined surfaces of the faceted ceiling, combined with the vertical veils and light cannons, lend the void sculptural qualities usually associated with solid space. The materiality of the void gives body to the volume.Save this picture!Model 1Separated from the living area by a thick dividing wall, the bedrooms and bathroom are organized within the fold of the V-shaped volume of the house, creating an intimate, introspective ambiance. The variety of interior spaces contrasts with the apparent simplicity of the exterior volume. The massive roof rests on a seven-foot brick base. The geometries converse with the impressive body of the existing farm, at the same time making their mark in the natural surroundings. The asymmetrical volume, enveloping form, chiaroscuro effect of the curved corridor, shadows, margins, thresholds, voids, and raw materials allow the unique atmosphere of the place to emerge without concealing the structural logic of the house.Save this picture!© Maxime DesbiensProject gallerySee allShow lessStop Talking Kanye: No More Defense for Kanye WestArticlesThe Lost History of the Women of the BauhausArticles Share Save this picture!© Maxime Desbiens+ 33Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Architects: Atelier Barda architecture Area Area of this architecture project Via Terra Houses Maison Gauthier / Atelier Barda architectureSave this projectSaveMaison Gauthier / Atelier Barda architecture CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Mont-Tremblant, Canada “COPY” Year:  CopyAbout this officeAtelier Barda architectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentMont-TremblantCanadaPublished on May 22, 2018Cite: “Maison Gauthier / Atelier Barda architecture” 22 May 2018.
