There was a decline in consumers’ confidence in their personal financial situation over the past year and in their expectations for the next 12 months as well as in the general economic situation. Optimism for the economy over the next year fell five points to -19, 23 points lower than in September 2009.However, more consumers now think that the current climate is good for making major purchases with the index rising five points compared to August. This is perhaps due to the scheduled January VAT hike encouraging consumers to buy big ticket items before the end of the year.

Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 9th January, 2020 | More on: KNOS SGE Image source: Getty Images The rising price of Bitcoin over the past few weeks has likely caused some investors to contemplate buying the cryptocurrency. However, while the price of Bitcoin might have rallied recently, its value has been volatile over the longer term.With that in mind, here are two cyber stocks that appear to offer better long-term outlooks and have the potential to deliver rising share prices as their growth plans come to fruition.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…KainosDigital services company Kainos (LSE: KNOS) stormed onto the stock market in 2015, and the enterprise hasn’t looked back since. Recent updates from the firm show its growth isn’t going to slow down any time soon.Since its IPO, the company’s earnings per share have grown at an annual rate of around 25%. Analysts are forecasting growth of 23% for 2020.The firm is complementing organic growth with acquisitions. For example, in November of last year, Kainos acquired Adaptive Insights, a financial and business planning software business which is part of Workday Inc, and Formulate, which supports customers in implementing Adaptive Insight’s software.These deals should help the company meet its growth targets. With nearly £40m of cash on the balance sheet, the firm has plenty of resources to complete other deals as well.The stock trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 43, which isn’t cheap. Still, the company’s historical earnings growth rate and City projections for next year suggest a similar rate of growth may be achievable over the long term, as the group’s bottom line benefits from its growing stable of businesses.Sage GroupAnother cyber stock with the potential to deliver significant gains in 2020 is accounting software group Sage (LSE: SGE). For the past few decades, the Sage brand has been synonymous with accounting software.It doesn’t look as if this is going to change anytime soon. Because it takes a lot of time and training to get used to accounting software, clients don’t tend to switch providers very often, which gives Sage a sizeable competitive advantage and sticky and customer base.This customer base produces a steady, recurring revenue stream for Sage and recent trading updates from the company highlight how management is leveraging the power of the internet to improve profit margins and distribution. The group has been focusing on distributing its software via the cloud, which has increased costs in the short term but should lead to improving profit margins in the long run.As such, now could be a great time to snap up shares in this software giant at an attractive price. The stock trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 22.8, which suggests that the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. There’s also a dividend yield of 2.4% on offer for income investors. The distribution covered 1.7 times by earnings per share.As the company pursues its growth plans, Sage offers a lot of potential for capital and income growth over the long run.

The Greatest Six Nations XV

first_img Six Nations Kits What will each team wear during the 2020… Terrible Two: O’Driscoll and O’Connell formed the core of Ireland’s brilliant teams (Getty Images) Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Collapse Expand Expand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Also make sure you know about the Fixtures, Injuries, Table, Venues, TV Coverage by clicking on the highlighted links.Finally, don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Dotting Down: Jenkins scores the key try as wales secured a Grand Slam in 2005 (Getty Images)There were plenty who questioned his scrum technique but he found a way to survive in the tight, and that was good enough because Jenkins was one of the great footballing props of all time, up there in Wales with Graham Price.He tackled like a tank yet had a softness of touch with the ball in hand that defied the bulk of the man all of Wales seemed to call ‘Melon’.2 Raphaël Ibañez (France)French Quality: Ibanez was a sublime forward for Les Bleus (Getty Images)Famed this side of the Channel for his illustrious career at Wasps, Ibañez was an outstanding hooker in his France days, unforgiving in the set-piece and remarkably mobile in the loose.He retired from the Test arena in 2003 but was good enough to force Bernard Laporte to court his return to the international game. He did more than merely return. Laporte selected him to captain his country in an extended swansong, which highlighted this exceptional hooker’s abilities.3 Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)Modern Prop: Furlong does everything to a high standard (Getty Images)Forget the longevity rule, the Ireland tighthead’s exceptional form in the past few years makes him an automatic pick for this team – and one of the most exciting prospects for years to come.Here is a front-row forward who approaches scrummaging with the 
relish of an old-style Five Nations 
prop whilst carrying and tackling like 
a modern Kiwi.He has the technical abilities of Gethin Jenkins but without any of the question marks which swirled around the Welshman’s scrummaging.He is the complete player who, like Stuart Hogg, has great things ahead.4 Martin Johnson (England, captain)Leads from the front: Johnson led by example as captain of England (Getty Images)The second row was as difficult a call as any when picking this team. Fabien Pelous and Alun Wyn Jones have not made the cut. That tells you something about the quality of the pair included.This Tiger began his career as an uncomplicated hard man. He finished 
as England’s most garlanded player, captaining them to the World Cup.Along with many of the Woodward team, he developed a running and handling game, a little like Jones these days. But it was as an unforgiving enforcer with immense leadership 
for which he will be remembered 
on the rugby battlefields of Europe.5 Paul O’Connell (Ireland)The ‘other’ totemic presence in Ireland’s 2009 Grand Slam side. O’Connell gave what I would regard as the greatest display of second-row play when Ireland ‘welcomed’ England to Croke Park for the first time in 2007. He dominated the airways at lineout and restart like few, if any, have done before or since.He’s a man of presence, someone you follow without asking questions. Willie John McBride is a legend but in the first decade of the 21st century, O’Connell eclipsed him as the greatest Irish lock.6 Richard Hill (England)Unseen Beast: Hill did all the work every great flanker does (Getty Images)Another of the World Cup contingent to make it. Hill was good enough to be a Lions Test seven, even as he set about quietly influencing every game he played as a blindside. ‘Unseen work’ is a phrase I dislike and distrust, so easy to justify the work of a favourite, but none have merited the sobriquet quite like Hill.He was so good at doing so many things without fuss that it’s hard to recall one single moment. But he wasn’t a moment man, he was an 80 minutes perpetual motion sort of flanker.7 Sam Warburton (Wales)Day of the Jackal: Warburton was a genius at the breakdown (Getty Images)I am not sure whether 
the Wales openside was even the best Six Nations openside of his generation. When fit, Ireland’s Sean O’Brien is an equal menace as a jackler and a different class as a ball-carrier. However, endurance, if not everything, counts for plenty and while Warburton was brittle in club colours, for Wales he was a dauntless warrior and notable captain.Not a natural in the Shane Williams Welsh way, but a man of passion, no small intelligence and integrity.8 Lawrence Dallaglio (England)Swiss Army Knife: Dallaglio could do everything at number 8 (Getty Images)There’s no Sergio Parisse, no Italian presence, so my old mate ‘Bruno’ will have 
to be the nearest thing in the team to 
an Italian representative.One of four World Cup winners in the side, Dallaglio brought an indomitable will to every Six Nations game he played. ‘Remorseless’ is the right word for the Wasp who never died wondering on the field of play. Others were more skilful – Imanol Harinordoquy say – but none had the same drive and self-belief to lift those around him like ‘Big Lol’.Follow our Six Nations homepage which we update regularly with news and features. Six Nations Kits Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Former England fly-half Stuart Barnes turns selector to pick his ‘dream team’ of players since the championship expanded in 2000 The Greatest Six Nations XVThe greatest Six Nations team of the century? ‘Six’ is the key word. We are about to be in the 21st year of this brave new world where Italy joined the party. Forget the famous Five Nations, the focus is on what is essentially the modern professional code – with apologies to some of the lags who crossed between the epochs.Indeed, some of those veterans 
made it from the last to this millennium, players who I played with have made the team. Only a few, and they were exceptional. In the main, excellence goes with longevity as the criteria 
for selection. Sympathy for countries which have struggled plays no part 
in the choices. So here we go.15 Stuart Hogg (Scotland)Unpredictable: Hogg has been wowing crowds for years (Getty Images)The Player of the Championship in both 2016 and 2017, the Glasgow Warrior has overtaken Gavin Hastings as the greatest Scottish full-back of them all. Never afraid to 
use his speed on the counter-attack, 
in the past three years he has added better decision-making to his physical attributes and his astonishing boot.An inspiring presence in attack and defence, there have been few full-backs to stand comparison with this flying Scot. And unlike all bar one other in this XV, we can hope the best is still to come.14 Jason Robinson (England)Billy Whizz: Robinson was rapid on the wing for England (Getty Images)If there was one player who could have ousted Hogg it was the league convert. Coming off the bench against Italy in 2001 he looked out of his depth, but it was one of Clive Woodward’s greatest decisions to make the premature introduction.In no time he was repeating his 
Wigan wizardry in the Six Nations, 
first as a wing and then as a full-back. His try against France in 2002, one-against-one from a scrum, made the game look impossibly easy; if 
you possessed a Jason Robinson.13 Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland)This was the most straightforward of all the selections. The former Ireland centre is one of the greatest of all rugby players. He drove Ireland to their first Grand Slam since 1948, as adept at the short-range score as the dazzling hat-trick of tries which marked his arrival on the Test scene in Paris.Scything in attack, he was equally accomplished in defence (a nod for his sidekick, Gordon D’Arcy, on this theme).If he had a weakness, it was his long passing game, but with the arrival of 
Joe Schmidt as coach that relative fault was eradicated. The most complete player in this Six Nations composite.12 Yannick Jauzion (France)Coolness Personified: Jauzion glided around the field (Getty Images)If O’Driscoll is the most complete 21st-century centre of the Six Nations elite, none approach the elegance that Jauzion brought to the game. Nothing seemed to happen in 
a hurry but the 6ft 4in former France centre had the knack of drawing defenders into his orbit and creating space for those players around him.The most languid of movers, he played as if he had all the time in the world. He had a game of aesthetic beauty.11 Shane Williams (Wales)Small stature: He may have been small, but he was tougher to stop than anybody (Getty Images)It took Wales a while to trust Williams but he didn’t hold 
it against them. The man 
of phenomenal footwork sidestepped off his wing and played a far from peripheral part in two Grand Slams.Here was the quintessential Welshman, smaller than his opponent but so full of craft and guile that few could lay a hand on one of the 21st century’s great rugby entertainers.In a nation famed for its wings, nobody is more revered in Welsh wing history than the fleet-footed Williams.10 Johnny Sexton (Ireland)Unflappable: Sexton always delivers under pressure (Getty Images)This was arguably the toughest call to make. Sexton was supreme in the manner in which he guided Ireland to their 2018 Slam but all of England (or its vast majority) will be up in arms at the absence of a certain Jonny Wilkinson.From 2000-03 Wilkinson was magnificent, especially his performance in the 2003 Grand Slam win in Dublin, but thereafter he was injured/average.Sexton has been hugely consistent since filling the boots of Ronan O’Gara; a ten of iron will with the coolest of heads.Sexton, frequently the torturer 
of the English, it is who gets the nod.9 Dwayne Peel (Wales)Controlled the game: Dwayne Peel was excellent at dictating matches for Wales (Getty Images)Often in the shadow of the more robust Mike Phillips, yet when Peel was running the show from the base of the scrum, Wales were a far more attractive team 
to watch and a tougher one to stop.There was a fluidity to his pass and 
a sly ability to pick the gap around the fringes that made him a rare talent, if a somewhat underestimated one at times, despite this creature of beguiling instinct being a Lions Test player in NZ in 2005.

An important part of our brief was finding a balance between new and old architecturally and sentimentally.  Our client wanted to retain the romantic elements of the house, and its sense of humility in a suburb of flashy new builds. She was simultaneously keen to have a new start in this house and have it feel her own.Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe strategy is a modest one: retain the original 1920s bungalow frontage and replace a poor 1960s addition at the rear. The primary move is to cave out central part of the plan as living spaces with clear views to the front (harbour) and back (garden). The central band of living space is contained on either side by cellular ribbons of bedrooms and utility.Save this picture!© Katherine Lu  The living space occupies the area underneath the peak of the original roof. The ceiling is removed and a series of distorted pyramid ceiling voids are created within the original geometry, allowing light into the centre of the plan, promoting stack effect ventilation and reinforcing the unusual order of operation of the house.On the high side of the site, the master bedroom is nestled against an existing cliff-face, juxtaposing its harbour view and a close encounter with mossy sandstone and a cheeky orchid garden.The intention is modest: a replacement addition that is fully concealed from the street and minimal facelift to the front.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Architecture of Alfred HitchcockArticlesBuenos Aires Contemporary Art Museum / MonoblockSelected Projects Share Photographs Architects: Tribe Studio Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/469315/house-chapple-tribe-studio-architects Clipboardcenter_img Australia Save this picture!© Katherine Lu+ 27 Share Year:  2013 House Chapple / Tribe Studio Architects CopyHouses, Renovation•Mosman, Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/469315/house-chapple-tribe-studio-architects Clipboard “COPY” Year: last_img read more

This modern ski chalet was designed as a weekend retreat for a family with school age children. Sited on the steep slope of a former ski hill, Mont-Jasper, near the village of Saint-Donat. At an elevation of 2,435 feet above sea level, the site is among the highest residential building lots in the Laurentians and Lanaudière regions.  From this elevation, surrounded by a dense forest of spruce, maple, beech and birch trees, the chalet commands 100-mile panoramic views over beautiful Lac Archambault.Save this picture!© Marc CramerTo maintain the natural topography of the steep mountainside and to minimizes the footprint of construction, the house was built on 8” x 8” western red cedar pilotis. Elevating the house allows snow and spring run-off to flow freely beneath the structure. In spring and summer, a forest floor of native ferns and moss extends uninterrupted beneath the structure. Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe home is accessed via an entry bridge, with the living level 30’ above grade. The main floor has an open plan connecting the kitchen, dining area, and living room. Spanning the length of the kitchen and dining areas is a 27-foot-long bay window and window seat. Below the upholstered seat cushions is concealed storage. A dramatic panoramic window wall runs the full width of the bay and focuses views on the remarkable landscape beyond. High on the opposite side of the chalet, a continuous clerestory window runs the full length of the house bringing in morning light and views of the mountain above.Save this picture!PlanThe kitchen features a large central island that contains a gas cook top and a prep sink so that the host does not turn their back to the views or the family and friends they are entertaining. The kitchen’s adjacency to the long window seat, creates a generous and comfortable place for the family and guests to gather after a day of skiing. Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe east side of the kitchen and dining room are built into a shallow bay that articulates itself on the entry façade. The efficient use of this cantilevered bay coupled with that of the larger bay on the north side of the house allows for a slender and efficient 14’-2” deep main structural footprint.Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe living room occupies the southern end of the home where daylight streams in from windows on three sides. A fireplace anchors the living room, while a smaller, cozy window seat with mountain views provides additional seating. Directly adjacent the living room, through a wall of glass sliding doors, is an expansive south-facing deck with an outdoor fireplace.Save this picture!© Marc CramerAt the north end of the main living level is the master suite. The master bedroom and bathroom also benefit from large windows that maintain the home’s visual connection to the surrounding landscape. On the lower level, the children’s bedrooms, a guest bedroom, steam room, and a play room all enjoy expansive views. One of the children’s bedrooms features a custom designed bunk bed, while the other has a cozy built-in bed, above drawers, set flush with the full-width window. Adjacent the steam room, the spa occupies the lower deck where it enjoys private framed views of the forest beyond.Save this picture!© Marc CramerThe exterior of the house is uniformly clad in dark stained white cedar siding. The angle of the metal roof matches the slope of the mountain. The exposed deep eaves of the roof as well as the finish material of the ceiling throughout the interior of the main living level is square-grooved clear western red cedar. The chalet’s thermal envelope is highly insulated and was carefully detailed to minimize thermal bridging and energy consumption.Save this picture!© Marc CramerProject gallerySee allShow lessVirtual Reality for Architecture Predicts Patterns, Drives Business DecisionsArticlesCall for Entries: Pamphlet Architecture 36Call for Submissions Share J and M Engineers, Joe Matje Canada Laurentian Ski Chalet / RobitailleCurtisSave this projectSaveLaurentian Ski Chalet / RobitailleCurtis ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783887/laurentian-ski-chalet-robitaillecurtis Clipboard Area:  2750 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Projects “COPY”last_img read more

Welcoming calmness, comfort and light to the north garden in front of the railway station in central Tokyo.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeThe site is adjacent to a railway station in Meguro ward, Tokyo. There is an elevated railway to the east and a neighboring building to the west of the site. To the north, across from the front road of the site, there is a forest, which you merely see around stations. Beyond the forest, you would see the city of Shibuya and further to Shinjuku. The two-family house has a clinic on the ground floor and two floors above for each family. We decided to plan three gardens of different characters.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeEntering the gate to the clinic on the ground floor, a garden of deciduous trees and stone paving welcomes the visitor. As you look up, all you would see is the clear sky as the deciduous trees cleverly hides the neighboring elements. You would feel as if you are visiting a single-story building. This garden provides a relaxing atmosphere to the visitor instead of giving a sense of intimidation.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeThe second floor is a residential space for their grandmother. In order to block noise of trains and views from the neighboring buildings, the residential space was planned to face the courtyard garden to the south which is surrounded by 6m high walls. The exterior wall of the courtyard wall is finished roughly with paint or wood planks which the noise diffuses as it reflects off the wall, achieving a certain level of quietness.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!Site PlanThe third floor is mainly used by the young family. With a forest that spreads to the north and a view of Shibuya and Shinjuku far out beyond, we planned a wide opening and a terrace that faces the forest. However, we were required to enclose the terrace with partition walls and a deep eave in order to block the noise of trains and views from neighboring buildings. On the other hand, by extending the eave and erecting a wall, we would ourselves cast a shadow to the forest. To enable natural sunlight to reach the forest, we filleted the edges of the building. As a result, the building’s interior became a cave-like space, which embraces you and fills the space with a sense of security. Technically, the filleted shape raises the visible sky ratio, which reduces the sense of intimidation of the building when looked above from the front road.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Within / Arch.LabSelected ProjectsConcrete Shell House / IKAWAYA ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Sky Cave House & Clinic / IKAWAYA ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSky Cave House & Clinic / IKAWAYA Architects Projects Architects: IKAWAYA Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeIKAWAYA ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsMixed Use ArchitectureHealthcare ArchitectureHealthcareclinicResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoOn FacebookJapanPublished on January 14, 2021Cite: “Sky Cave House & Clinic / IKAWAYA Architects” 13 Jan 2021.

He spends about 10 hours a week on his charitable foundation and up to 60 hours on Microsoft business. His mother encouraged him to think about giving some of his wealth to charity, and investor Warren Buffet’s criticism of rich parents simply passing their wealth down to their children made him think about how he could use his fortune more effectively.He has pledged to give away his £28 billion fortune before he dies. So far The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has spent about £4 billion primarily on international health activities.
