THE British high street enjoyed a surprisingly healthy September, according to the CBI’s distributive trades survey with the balance of retailers reporting that sales were higher compared to a year earlier rising to the highest level since May 2004. A net 49 per cent said that sales volumes were greater than a year earlier thanks to the bank holiday weekend, the final discounting in the summer sales, and the launch of autumn fashion ranges.Household consumption growth gave GDP growth a major boost in the second quarter, with the headline growth figure confirmed at 1.2 per cent yesterday. “The CBI survey suggests that retail spending has remained firm in the third quarter, and is supportive of the view that consumer demand is solid, notwithstanding concerns about government cuts,” said Barclays Capital’s Simon Hayes.Retailers remained as optimistic about the outlook for October but some economists warned that households could not finance consumption by running down the amount they save forever. whatsapp Tuesday 28 September 2010 10:51 pm Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsapp Share KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ High street sales jump
Spain’s leading gaming trade association the Consejo Empresarial del Juego (CEJUEGO) has been incorporated into the country’s umbrella body for industry groups, the Confederación Española de Organizaciones Empresariales (CEOE).The incorporation was agreed in March last year, and comes as the industry braces for new operating restrictions in the wake of the Socialist Workers’ Party’s (PSOE) victory in the country’s latest general election.CEJUEGO said that as a member of the broader trade association, it would be able to draw on CEOE’s influence and experience as it looks to defend the role of the gaming sector in the Spanish market.It will look to better highlight its contribution to society and its status as an employer and wealth creator in the country, with the industry accounting 2.3% of the country’s gross domestic product according to CEJUEGO.“This incorporation is very good for us because of the possibilities it offers us to give more visibility to our sector to the government, the media and society in general,” CEJUEGO chief executive Alejandro Landaluce said.The need for the industry’s positive impact to be highlighted has become more pressing after the PSOE won the most seats in the Spanish general election yesterday (April 28). Despite falling short of the 176 seats required for an outright majority, the PSOE is now likely to renew efforts to introduce stricter controls on the country’s gambling sector.Measures set out in the PSOE’s budget for 2019 included plans to place controls on gambling advertising similar to those already in force for tobacco and alcohol, which were described at the time as “unjustified” by CEJUEGO. This budget was rejected by the Spanish parliament in February this year, prompting PSOE leader Pedro Sánchez to call the snap general election.In the PSOE’s manifesto for the election, it pledged to also introduce restrictions on inducements to gamble such as welcome bonuses for igaming, and increase taxes to fund the prevention and treatment of social issues arising from gambling. It will also look to close betting shops, and replace them with new social centres for young people across the country.

As a fan, you should just get carried away. England have only ever beaten New Zealand seven times. Rejoice.Follow Alex Lowe on Twitter @AlexMLowe The character England showed not to fold when the All Blacks suddenly found their groove after the interval and closed from 15-0 down to within a point belied their inexperience. Other teams would have been crushed. England refused. Owen Farrell called it a “champion’s attitude”. That is where the likes of Robshaw, the mighty Wood and Cole come into their own. They led a commanding forward effort, which underpinned an historic victory.’Champion’s attitude’: Owen FarrellOf course, as of right now England’s 38-21 triumph is a one-off result. We have seen new dawns before. In the autumn of 1983, England beat New Zealand at Twickenham and then won just one of their seven matches in 1984. In 2010 England beat Australia in Sydney, thumped them at home in the autumn, won the 2011 Six Nations and then crashed out of the World Cup.Before England had even left the pitch on Saturday, the message from Robshaw was for the squad to remember what it took and what it felt like to beat the All Blacks and replicate it when Scotland come to town in February. Lancaster’s plan has longevity. When you see what the likes of Launchbury and Tom Youngs are already contributing to England, it is hard not see them and the team improving campaign on campaign between now and 2015 and then beyond.Billy Twelvetrees will be involved in the Six Nations and he is sure to add a different dimension to the England midfield, while Dylan Hartley and Ben Foden will also be back in the mix. My belief that the future is bright for England is based on what I see and what I hear from inside the camp. Silver lining: England captain Chris Robshaw lifts the Sir Edmund Hillary Shield after the win over the All BlacksBy Alex LoweI GOT a tweet in the aftermath of England’s record triumph over New Zealand, suggesting politely I should stop getting carried away, that it was just one win. As it happened, I had not been getting carried away. All I had done was note while watching a re-run of the game how well Mike Brown played and that he “always makes ground”.But what’s wrong with England supporters getting excited? Sport is emotion. If you take the highs and lows out of it, if you abandon the hope and the expectation, then what exactly is the point?Power surge: England’s Manu TuilagiAs a coach, I understand the value of Stuart Lancaster taking the scientific approach. He believes in culture and process. Everything he does has a clear logic, every selection decision, every training decision. He was right not to get too down after the defeat to South Africa because England had played well. But players are fuelled by emotion. They took the hurt of that defeat into the All Blacks match, they hit the world champions with a thundering intensity and showed a remarkable character to see them off.And so red rose fans should be excited and don’t apologise for it because this is not blind faith. If you have confidence in what Lancaster is building – as I do – then this England win has to be seen as the start of something promising, potentially something special. Just consider where England are now compared to this time last year. Seven of the starting XV on Saturday made their Test debuts in 2012. Chris Robshaw had just one cap when he was appointed captain for the Six Nations. They have beaten France in Paris, Ireland by 30-odd points at home and now the world champions.But what about those bruising defeats to the Springboks on the summer tour? What about the naive performance against the Wallabies a couple of weeks ago? I hear you. But this is a team that is learning and developing quickly. How many more England players would be in your Lions team now than on 1 November? Alex Corbisiero, Dan Cole, Tom Wood and Joe Launchbury would certainly be in my team if the first Test was next weekend. Potentially others too.

Each room receives light and wind from the two adjacent gardens.Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesThe generous space under the eaves opens up the family’s activities from rain and sunshine.

By reinterpreting the relationship between the interior and the eaves, the living space is intended to extend to the outside and to the surrounding environment, including the farmland.
