Minister denies rift between Duncan Smith and Osborne

first_img SUGGESTIONS of a cabinet rift between George Osborne and Iain Duncan Smith were scotched by a senior minister yesterday, but Whitehall sources insisted the pair were at loggerheads. David Willetts, the universities minister, said he was “not aware” of any acrimony between the chancellor and Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary. “All I can say is that all of us are working hard on saving money in our departments,” he added.But friends of Duncan Smith said he was frustrated by Treasury officials working for Osborne, who he says treat his staff with disrespect. Clare Lombardelli, the Treasury mandarin in charge of welfare reform, has been identified by Duncan Smith as one of the key culprits.The chancellor also balked at the £3bn up-front cost of Duncan Smith’s welfare reforms, insisting the Department of Work and Pensions make £10bn of cuts elsewhere to help fund the plans. A source close to Duncan Smith suggested he would resign if the chancellor blocks his welfare reforms. “Iain didn’t come back into politics for vanity. He’s got one simple aim: to reform the benefits system. If he can’t, there will be little reason for him to stay in government.” KCS-content Sunday 22 August 2010 10:26 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL Share Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com whatsapp Minister denies rift between Duncan Smith and Osborne last_img read more

do you expect house prices to keep falling

first_img do you expect house prices to keep falling KCS-content Monday 30 August 2010 8:43 pm whatsapp ED STANSFIELD | CAPITAL ECONOMICSWe forecast the Nationwide survey to be five per cent lower at the end of this year compared to December 2009 and the outlook remains downbeat for 2011. The market has softened already before we have seen any real fiscal tightening. Although London is likely to remain resilient in the short term, it is likely it will see bigger-than-average falls.CATHERINE PENMAN | CARTER JONASThe overall picture is definitely one of decline with fewer enquiries and the conversion of applicants to successful sales falling. We are not forecasting a fall off a cliff but we think the slowdown will continue. After a buoyant spring, the market has struggled to get going again. Public sector cuts are going to have a significant effect.PETER ROLLINGS | MARSH & PARSONSAt the start of 2010 I said that the London market would be five to seven per cent higher by the end of the year. Although public sector cuts will slow the national market, I think we will see a six or seven per cent increase on London prices this year. We have had a surprisingly good August, which is typically quiet. There’s plenty of demand and at last supply is coming back. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy Fanautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite Heraldcenter_img Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Paradoxically the new main cabin at Årsund was built after the annex. This due to the fact that the original cabin, with exception of the annex, was removed to make way for the new-build. Moreover, the annex was drawn by another architect office and completed a few years ago. We therefore had to design a new whole, which included the annex and yet at the same time created a new building which in itself would provide a satisfactory solution both for site and programSave this picture!© Tom AugerThe result is both a traditional shelter with a gabled roof, and at the same time a modernist complex of added units dominated by flat roofed modules.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe top, front module facing west contains a small study and has the best ocean views. The room can sway in storms, but the construction allows for flexibility in strong winds! The modules which are leaning towards the eastern wall of the main construction, sheltered from the westerly winds, serve as bedrooms and a retreat for individual family members when they need some time for themselves.Save this picture!© Tom AugerThe Taj Mahal-ish front situation shows how the composition is balanced in two ways. First, the ridge of the gabled roof is skewed towards the annex such that the roof of the annex can be seen as the southern side of a large gabled roof, covering both the main volume and the annex. Secondly, the large window of the top front module serves both as a centerpiece for the composition as a whole and as a dynamic counterpart to the glass corner at ground level to the northwest.Save this picture!© Tom AugerSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Tom AugerThe entrance has a somewhat seductive nature by being both inviting and at the same time secretive. You are led towards an entrance by the curved path and by the roofs and volumes surrounding the entrance. Still the entrance remains hidden and uncertain. The use of shingles (which are normally reserved for weather-exposed walls or roofs) on the wall leading to the entrance underlines this ambiguity.Save this picture!© Tom AugerProject gallerySee allShow lessLosing Myself: The Irish Exhibition at the 2016 Venice Architecture BiennaleArchitecture NewsWaterlinie Museum / Jonathan Penne Architects + Rapp+Rapp + West 8Selected Projects Share CopyHouses•Tingvoll, Norway “COPY” Norway 2015 Photographs Save this picture!© Tom Auger+ 17 Share Architects: Rever & Drage Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  ArchDaily Cabin Straumsnes / Rever & Drage Architects Area:  135 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/787425/cabin-straumsnes-rever-and-drage-architects Clipboard Cabin Straumsnes / Rever & Drage ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCabin Straumsnes / Rever & Drage Architects CopyAbout this officeRever & Drage ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTingvollNorwayPublished on May 18, 2016Cite: “Cabin Straumsnes / Rever & Drage Architects” 18 May 2016.

Ector ISD elementary schools competed Friday in the 8th annual Battle of the Bluebonnets, in the Odessa College Sports Center. Education Foundation Executive Director Celeste Potter said there was a three-way tie once before and every other year it’s just been one team that’s won.“I’m proud of them and it’s exciting, too, because it’s three new schools that were in the top that went to the tie-break round that had never been to the tie-break round before, so I’m really proud of them. They worked really hard,” Potter said.The winning campuses will receive a gift bag from the Education Foundation with an assortment of books and other prizes, plus bragging rights for a year, Potter said.“It’s fantastic, man,” Cavazos Elementary School Principal Brandon Chesser said. “They did an awesome job. They worked really hard. … We’re super-proud of them. They represented Cavazos well. … I’m so happy for them.”The students also were excited about their win.Darianna Pando, a 10-year-old fifth-grader at Hays, said it was cool that they got to compete and beat the other schools. She added that she was “really nervous” about the ties.Hays Library Media Specialist Janie Steele didn’t said the students’ accomplishment was extremely important because it’s goal-setting and achieving a goal.“And plus in the process it’s building their reading vocabulary and reading comprehension. If you read all the Bluebonnet books, you’re reading well into a million words, so … reading those books definitely prepares them to be successful students in the future,” Steele said.She added that she was excited about Hays being a co-champion.“We practiced this week and we prepared. I was only going to practice with them three days and they said, ‘No, no. Can we please practice one more day?’ They worked hard. They worked very, hard and they did all the work. They’re very exceptional young people. I’m blessed to work with them,” Steele said.Potter said the Battle of the Bluebonnets is funded through donations.

The order was passed by Justice Alok Kumar Verma who clarified that the order for extension of limitation did not mean that the Court had extended the 60 days/ 90 days period of police investigation. “The Hon’ble Supreme Court has not mentioned in the said Orders that investigation will be covered under these Orders. The Orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court are binding on all the courts including High Courts. No court has the right to interpret the Orders passed by the Hon’ble Apex Court. Therefore, the police investigation is not covered under the Orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court,” he held.A similar order was also passed by the Madras High Court last week, whereby it was held that Section 167 of Cr.PC cannot be construed as containing the period of limitation for filing of final reports. Accordingly Justice GR Swaminathan had observed, “The time limits for compliance or completion of certain actions under the specified laws, falling during the period March 20, 2020 to June 29, 2020, have been extended. No similar change has been effected in respect of Section 167(2) of Cr.P.C.”The present order was passed in an application for regular bail whereby the applicant had orally challenged the order of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Champawat, who had rejected the applicant’s request for default bail after holding that the applicant is not entitled to claim the benefit of default bail in the light of the Supreme Court order dated March 23, 2020 In Re-Cognizance For Extension Of Limitation. “On the expiry of the said period of 90 days or 60 days [under Section 167], as the case may be, an indefeasible right accrues in favour of the accused for being released on bail on account of default by the Investigating Agency in the completion of the investigation within the period prescribed and the accused is entitled to be released on bail, if he is prepared to and furnishes the bail as directed by the Magistrate,” the court reiterated the observations made in Uday Mohanlal Acharya vs. State of Maharasthra, (2001) 5 SCC 453. The court further held that the right to default bail under section 167(2) CrPC is not affected by the Supreme Court’s order for extending limitation. Accordingly, the applicant was released on bail on his executing a personal bond and furnishing two reliable sureties, each in the like amount, to the satisfaction of the court concerned subject to certain other bail conditions. The applicant in this case is an accused in the scholarship scam whereby embezzlement of approximately Rs. 39,52,000/- is involved. Case Details: Case Title: Vivek Sharma v.
