Revenues leapt more than half to $70bn thanks to a threefold increase in industrial activities, while trading revenues rose slightly.Net debt rose to $13.6bn from $10.2bn, while debt coverage ratios were largely unchanged due to increased earnings and operating cash flow, the company said.

Ofgem to review retail energy market

first_img Show Comments ▼ ENERGY regulator Ofgem is to launch a review of the UK’s energy retail market today after flagging concerns that suppliers are charging too much.Its latest analysis of retail prices shows the margin on a standard dual fuel tariff is now about £90, up 38 per cent from September’s level of £65. Ofgem said that while it expects energy companies to be profitable, it wants to clarify whether the market is transparent and protects consumers enough.“Consumers have the right to expect that the energy retail market is providing them with value for money,” said Chief executive Alistair Buchanan.He said the rise in company margins at a time of rising energy prices “causes Ofgem to rightly ask if companies are playing it straight with consumers.”The review will go beyond Ofgem’s regular quarterly price reports to review the retail market overall and how recent reforms are affecting consumers.It will assess how effective the retail market is as well as how comprehensively energy suppliers have implemented Ofgem’s reforms.It will investigate “the facts behind these numbers,” Buchanan said, and should be completed by March 2011.Ofgem’s Electricity and Gas Supply Market Report found that three of the “Big Six” Uk energy suppliers have already announced price rises for the winter.RWE Npower and Eon are still to announce whether they will raise prices while EDF Energy has pledged to fix its prices until March 2011. alison.lock More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 whatsapp Ofgem to review retail energy market center_img Tags: NULL by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeCuteness56 Animal Puns For a Quick LaughCutenessBewadaHusband Divorced His Wife After Looking Closer At This PhotoBewadacutenova.comTake a Peek at 10 of the Most Expensive Houses in the Worldcutenova.comHealth.recetasgetHeart Attack Early Warning Signs and SymptomsHealth.recetasgetPlumbing ServicesPlumber Prices In Scottsdale might surprise YouPlumbing Services5log – Livinguard®This mask has been sold out in Germany 5 days after the government has tighten up5log – Livinguard®AmoMediaRich Guy Mocks Disabled Waiter, Regrets It ImmediatelyAmoMediaMike HistoryBruce Willis Is Nearing 70 & This Is The Car He Has TodayMike HistoryScalp Psoriasis SearchWhat Exactly is Scalp Psoriasis?

Candela House / zigzag arquitectura

first_imgCandela House / zigzag arquitecturaSave this projectSaveCandela House / zigzag arquitectura “COPY” Houses CopyHouses•Parres, Spain Candela House / zigzag arquitectura Projects Text description provided by the architects. A family meeting place The starting point was the need for a house large enough for the variable and regular meeting of a family composed of 6 subfamilies, with a total of 10 adults and 8 children. The idea was to create a family shelter, a place to meet and escape from urban life, with a low budget and the scarce construction resources available in a relatively isolated location. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesFastenersFastmount®Panel Fastener – Very Low ProfileWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsThe place / an eyed mountain The plot is located in an area surrounded by mountains, Aballe Dego, close to the River Sella. The place suggested the idea of a mountain ,hollowed inside, with eyes strategically arranged to capture the surrounding landscape, introducing it into the rooms of the house and avoiding direct views into the homes of the nearest neighbours. Save this picture!Volume and outer skin The volume interacts with the surrounding mountains, longing to become one of them. The folded roof is also a product of the enforcement of the local regulations and the hipped roof indicated by them. The result is a hard shell, earthy and perforated, allowing the entry of the landscape in the form of pictures which change each time you return to the house. The perforated skin protects its inhabitants from the outside, while allowing them to interact physically and visually with nature, with the seasons and with the weather. Save this picture!Indoor and outdoor space The house has two exterior rooms, facing the north and the south, which highlight the value of the use of the traditional Asturian porch as a space extension and a relationship with nature. In the darkness of the night, the shell disappears, and when the house is inhabited, the holes appear as “living fragments” floating in the landscape. Save this picture!Capturing the landscape Capturing the landscape is one of the main aims of the project. The intention is to absorb the surroundings in a precise and controlled way, so that all the rooms benefit from the qualities of the surrounding landscape. To achieve this, the hard casing of the house is perforated with holes of different sizes and positions, associating each one of them to the capturing of the surrounding landscape. Save this picture!Programme The programme is organized according to the dominant orientation of the plot. The night programme, bedrooms and bathrooms, is located in the northern area, leaving the southern orientation to the meeting spaces and the double height space: living room – dining room – kitchen. The porch serves as a link between the day spaces of the ground floor, and at the same time is used to mark the difference with the kitchen-dining room-living room programme. The north porch is linked to the main bedroom downstairs and contains the outside staircase which communicates the upstairs rooms directly with nature. Save this picture!Circulation and access The circulations inside the house are developed along the longitudinal axis of the house. A ramp serves as the starting point of a “promenade” which joins the different bedrooms on both floors and ends in a mezzanine with a view to the double height, from which the entire house is visually dominated. The main entrance to the house is from the entrance porch, located in the northern facade, next to the garage entrance. Both accesses meet in the hall, from which the promenade starts and connects all the rooms. Save this picture!sectionsMaterial and construction system The construction system is adapted to the resources available in the area: reinforced concrete structure as well as double brick isolated walls. The facades of the house are made with a dark grey rendering coat and planks of iroko wood. The roof is built with flat concrete tiles, adapting to the material regulations of the area.Project gallerySee allShow lessAir Multiplier™ / James DysonArticlesNew City Farm / Studio One ElevenArticles Share Area:  297 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Spain Architects: Zigzag Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Save this picture!+ 21 Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeZigzag ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesParresSpainPublished on July 02, 2010Cite: “Candela House / zigzag arquitectura” 02 Jul 2010.

That is for four hours out of every 24, that’s 20 hours that they can’t go out.“Our aircraft would be on that river for three minutes at any given time, and we will run the operation around their rowing club.“We offered to meet them to make sure our times do not conflict”.Mr Heaps blames St Michael’s for clouding the issue, using incorrect information.“In their appeal to An Bord Pleanala, they said that we didn’t have approval from the Limerick harbour master. Foynes Harbour Commission, who granted us permission, controls the river.“We did everything that we were asked to do by the planners”.Mr Heaps said that his company wrote to the three rowing clubs that use the river. “St Michael’s never responded, but the other two didn’t have an objection.“The day we flew the plane into Limerick for our test flight, I don’t think anybody noticed until it was taxiing on the water next to the hotel”.

We are not expressing anything with regard to the merits of the case or any processes to be adopted by the ECI in that regard. All contentions are left open,” the bench observed.The Top Court added that it will be open to the parties to invite the attention of the election commission in conduct of elections in a free and fair manner.Senior Advocate Rakesh Dwivedi appeared on behalf of the Election Commission of India and said that this impugned order is a complete interference with conduct of elections and virtually paralyzes the exercise. “We wish you should have been more proactive and you should have taken measures to supervise the elections better. The HC would not have interfered then. The situation was not changing on the ground so the HC had to interfere. You should have intervened at an appropriate stage,” remarked Justice Khanwilkar.The bench further stated that it had no reservation on staying the order but the ECI must take cognizance of the issues that had come up before the high court and act in accordance with law.Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi along with Advocate Astha Sharma appeared for Tomar & Goyal and submitted, “I have already lost 7 days of campaigning and two-three days may be granted for conduct of campaigns. 3 hours a day at least must be added to make up for the days lost”.Justice Khanwilkar however informed him that the bench was not inclined to pass orders in that regard. “We will not pass that order. Whatever representations that the Political parties need to make, they may approach the ECI. They are free to make whatever representations they want to make,” the bench said.Rohatgi then urged the court to take cognisance of the fact that many days were lost by political parties.At thus juncture, Justice Khanwilkar remarked,”If the parties had acted in a proper way and had maintained protocol, this situation would not have arisen in the first place. You must ask yourself who is responsible for this situation in the first place”- Supreme CourtWhile the ECI had assailed the order on the ground that the conduct and management of elections are overseen by it under the Constitution and Article 329 of the Constitution puts an express bar on judicial interference in midst of electoral process, BJP candidate Pradyumn Singh Tomar, contesting bye-elections from Gwalior, has moved the top court through Advocate Astha Sharma, contending that the impugned interim order has violated his right to conduct election campaign through physical gatherings as permitted by the Election Commission; Central Government and State of Madhya Pradesh.On October 20, Madhya Pradesh High Court had observed that the elections shall be conducted by virtual mode and not by physical gatherings, thereby restraining all District Magistrates from granting permissions to conduct physical campaigns unless the District Magistrate is satisfied that conduct of virtual election campaign is not possible.A division bench of Justices Sheel Nagu and Rajeev Kumar Shrivastava further directed that the holding of physical campaign by the political party where the permission is granted by the District Magistrate and approved by the Election Commission, shall take place only after the political party deposits the money with District Magistrate which is sufficient to purchase double the number of masks and sanitizers required for protecting the number of persons expected in the gathering.The said order was passed in a PIL averring that Covid Cases were on the rise due to the political parties organising campaigns in person& that State authorities were not taking any action against such political parties and their leaders.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
