A reading above 50 indicates growth in activity.The survey said growth in the industry was led by the commercial sector and civil engineering, which reported its strongest activity since February 2008. Activity in the house-building sector fell, ending a 12-month period of growth.New orders remained in positive territory in September, but the rate of growth eased for a fourth successive month and firms cut jobs at their fastest pace in six months.The mixed construction data comes after a similar survey of factory purchasing managers last week showed the sector grew at its slowest pace in 10 months, indicating overall economic growth is likely to slow sharply from a 1.2 per cent expansion in the second quarter.“While the construction sector only accounts for 6.3 per cent of national output, the apparent substantial slowdown in activity over July to September adds to the evidence that growth slowed markedly in the third quarter,” said Howard Archer, economist at IHS Global Insight.Deep upcoming government spending cuts will hit the construction sector particularly hard, with many public building and infrastructure projects likely to be shelved as the government seeks to eliminate its massive budget deficit over five years.

They were trading at 590.5p at 1821 GMT, down from a high of 600p.The Trent XWB is the only engine that can power the Airbus A350 XWB planes, making the order an inevitable follow-on from the purchase of such an aircraft.Still, the company will hope today’s order will ease some of the negative publicity surrounding it following criticism by Qantas and others over its handling of the QF32 flight. It is under pressure to clarify how many Airbus A380 planes must have their engines replaced and how long that will take.“Bearing in mind confidence is at a low then any good news has to be positive for the price. “We should welcome it for what it is, a very large order for a well-proven set of engines,” said BGC analyst Howard Wheeldon. “In troubled times such as this, it’s super news and it’s great news for the UK in terms of exports as well,” he added.Rolls-Royce is already well established in China, where it has a 56 per cent share of the market for large civil aero-engines.

USDA Announces Coronavirus Food Assistance Program

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USDA Announces Coronavirus Food Assistance Program USDA Announces Coronavirus Food Assistance Program Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Ashley Davenport – Apr 17, 2020 Previous articleUPDATED: Second Confirmed COVID-19 Case for Indiana Packers in Delphi, Plant Remains OpenNext articleHoosier Ag This Week – The Week in Review Podcast for April 18, 2020 Ashley Davenport SHARE U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue Friday announced the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP). This new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) program will take several actions to assist farmers, ranchers, and consumers in response to the COVID-19 national emergency. President Trump directed USDA to craft this $19 billion immediate relief program to provide critical support to our farmers and ranchers, maintain the integrity of our food supply chain, and ensure every American continues to receive and have access to the food they need.“During this time of national crisis, President Trump and USDA are standing with our farmers, ranchers, and all citizens to make sure they are taken care of,” Secretary Perdue said. “The American food supply chain had to adapt, and it remains safe, secure, and strong, and we all know that starts with America’s farmers and ranchers. This program will not only provide immediate relief for our farmers and ranchers, but it will also allow for the purchase and distribution of our agricultural abundance to help our fellow Americans in need.”CFAP will use the funding and authorities provided in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES), the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), and other USDA existing authorities. The program includes two major elements to achieve these goals.Direct Support to Farmers and Ranchers: The program will provide $16 billion in direct support based on actual losses for agricultural producers where prices and market supply chains have been impacted and will assist producers with additional adjustment and marketing costs resulting from lost demand and short-term oversupply for the 2020 marketing year caused by COVID-19.USDA Purchase and Distribution: USDA will partner with regional and local distributors, whose workforce has been significantly impacted by the closure of many restaurants, hotels, and other food service entities, to purchase $3 billion in fresh produce, dairy, and meat. We will begin with the procurement of an estimated $100 million per month in fresh fruits and vegetables, $100 million per month in a variety of dairy products, and $100 million per month in meat products. The distributors and wholesalers will then provide a pre-approved box of fresh produce, dairy, and meat products to food banks, community and faith based organizations, and other non-profits serving Americans in need.On top of these targeted programs USDA will utilize other available funding sources to purchase and distribute food to those in need.USDA has up to an additional $873.3 million available in Section 32 funding to purchase a variety of agricultural products for distribution to food banks. The use of these funds will be determined by industry requests, USDA agricultural market analysis, and food bank needs.The FFCRA and CARES Act provided an at least $850 million for food bank administrative costs and USDA food purchases, of which a minimum of $600 million will be designated for food purchases.The use of these funds will be determined by food bank need and product availability.Further details regarding eligibility, rates, and other implementation will be released at a later date.Additional Background:USDA has taken action during the COVID-19 national emergency to make sure children and families are fed during a time of school closures and job losses, as well as increase flexibilities and extensions in USDA’s farm programs to ensure the U.S. food supply chain remains safe and secure.Feeding Kids and FamiliesUSDA expanded flexibilities and waivers in all 50 states and territories to ensure kids and families who need food can get it during this national emergency.USDA is partnering with the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, McLane Global, PepsiCo, and others to deliver more than 1,000,000 meals a week to students in a limited number of rural schools closed due to COVID-19.USDA authorized Pandemic EBT in Michigan and Rhode Island, a supplemental food purchasing benefit to current SNAP participants and as a new EBT benefit to other eligible households to offset the cost of meals that would have otherwise been consumed at school.USDA expanded an innovative SNAP online grocery purchase pilot program in Arizona and California, Florida and Idaho, and DC and North Carolina, in addition to Alabama, Iowa, Nebraska, New York, Oregon and Washington.Actions to Ensure a Strong Food Supply ChainUSDA is working to ensure the food supply remains safe and secure.USDA announced flexibilities to ensure food distribution for certain food products like dairy and eggs reach retail settings.USDA announced farm loan flexibilities, deferrals, and maturity extensions.Whole of Government Response in Rural AmericaUSDA released The COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide, a first-of-its-kind resource for rural leaders looking for federal funding and partnership opportunities to help address this pandemic.USDA opened a second application window (April 14, 2020 to July 13, 2020) for $72 million of funding under the Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) grant program.USDA Rural Development lenders may offer 180-day loan payment deferrals without prior agency approval for Business and Industry Loan Guarantees, Rural Energy for America Program Loan Guarantees, Community Facilities Loan Guarantees, and Water and Waste Disposal Loan Guarantees.USDA will use the $100 million provided for the ReConnect Program in the CARES Act to invest in qualified 100 percent grant projects.For all the information on USDA’s work during the COVID-19 pandemic and resources available, please visit https://www.usda.gov/coronavirus.last_img read more

Letter to President Sirleaf about closure of media, violence against journalists

first_imgNews Organisation LiberiaAfrica Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom RSF_en Reporters Without Borders wrote to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf today voicing concern about the fact that the second round of the presidential election a week ago was marred by the suspension of four opposition media and by violence against journalists covering clashes between police and demonstrators. Despite the current uncertainty in Liberia, with the announcement of President Sirleaf’s reelection on the one hand and opposition candidate Winston Tubman’s call for a fresh election on the other, the letter urges Sirleaf to demonstrate a commitment to establish conditions that favour freedom of the press and opinion, and to ensure that those responsible for the violence against the journalists are punished.The text of the letter follows:President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Executive Mansion Monrovia, Liberia Paris, 15 November 2011Dear President Sirleaf,Reporters Without Borders, an organization that defends media freedom worldwide, is very worried about the poor climate in which the media have had to work in Liberia since the start of the presidential election campaign and which has had very negative consequences for journalists’ freedom and safety.The media have suffered as a result of the tension between the two main rival parties, which came to head when the opposition candidate, Winston Tubman, withdrew from the 8 November run-off. We deplore the serious violations of media freedom and acts of violence against journalists that took place during the second round of the elections.Between the two rounds, several journalists had already reported being manhandled or attacked while covering the dispersal of demonstrations by the security forces, in which at least one person was killed and many were wounded. On 8 November, a fire gutted the premises of radio Eternal Love Winning (ELWA). No suspect has so far been arrested. Regardless of whether the media were the direct target of this violence, it has created a climate of fear for journalists who are now unable to work normally.Aside from the violence against journalists, we deplore last week’s decision to close several news media. As you know, four media were closed on the orders of Judge James Zota of the Montserrado County first circuit criminal court in response to complaints filed by justice minister Christianah Tah and information minister Cletus Sieh.The premises of Kings FM/Clar TV (owned by opposition vice-presidential candidate George M. Weah), Love FM/TV (owned by opposition politician Benoni Urey) and Shattle FM were closed by police officers on 7 November on the official grounds that they had been broadcasting “hate” messages against the government and deliberately inciting violence.Power FM/TV suffered the same fate the next day only this time there was no court order, which seems to indicate the purely arbitrary nature of the closure. The owners of the four media, which are all regarded as favouring the opposition, appeared in court on 10 November.On 15 November, the judge found the four media guilty of inciting hatred but allowed them back on air.The current situation is delicate and marked by uncertainty, with the announcement of your reelection on the one hand and Winston Tubman’s call for a fresh election on the other. We are convinced that the closure of media is liable to exacerbate the situation and we therefore welcome today’s ruling and we hope that the recently closed radio stations will be able to reopen without delay. They must be allowed to resume operating and to contribute to the diversity of opinion in Liberia.The violence against journalists and media premises must not go unpunished and we urge you to ensure that light is shed on these incidents. The presidential election is already liable to be marred by the violence and other problems that accompanied it. It would be marred even more if those responsible for the violence against the media were not identified and appropriately punished.A month before you are due to collect the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, the international community expects you to demonstrate a commitment to establish conditions that favour freedom of the media and opinion in your country.We trust you will give this matter all the necessary attention.Sincerely,Jean-François Julliard Secretary-GeneralCopies to: Mr. Cletus A.

Redfin finalizes $608M RentPath acquisition

first_img CoStarredfinRentPathResidential Real Estate The deal ends an otherwise tumultuous 14 months for RentPath. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in late February 2020. That same month, CoStar founder and CEO Andrew Florance announced his firm’s plan to purchase RentPath for $587.5 million. But the deal drew scrutiny from the Federal Trade Commission, which sued to block it late last year on the grounds of unfair competition.In December, RentPath pulled out of the agreement, prompting a standoff between the two companies over a $60 million break-up fee. In March, a Delaware bankruptcy court ruled that CoStar would have to pay $52 million of that fee.[Inman] — Keith Larsen Share via Shortlink Tagscenter_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman and RentPath CEO Dhiren Fonseca (Redfin, Rentpath, iStock)It’s official: Redfin has finalized its purchase of RentPath for $608 million in cash, expanding the brokerage’s presence in the rental market.The acquisition gives Redfin control of RentPath’s subsidiaries, including Apartment Guide, Rentals.com and Rents.com, Inman reported. Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman said that listings from those platforms will appear on the brokerage’s website by 2022, according to the report. The deal closed in 42 days rather than the anticipated 90.“[W]e can’t wait to tell RentPath’s property-management customers, who were once uncertain about the company’s future, about our big plans to double our audience of people seeking a home to rent,” Kelman said, according to Inman.The deal will expand Redfin’s audience significantly.

Rightmove and Zoopla challenger Rummage4 launches after nine years in development

first_imgHome » News » Rightmove and Zoopla challenger Rummage4 launches after nine years in development previous nextProducts & ServicesRightmove and Zoopla challenger Rummage4 launches after nine years in developmentFounder Robert May and new CEO Anthony Codling talk about their now officially launched venture.Nigel Lewis3rd December 20181 Comment2,425 Views Robert May’s long-awaited venture Rummage4 has officially launched with the backing of Barratts, Bovis and Redrow as well as 30 estate agents nearly nine years after it was first conceived.The company’s launch coincides with the first day at work for its new CEO, Anthony Codling, who recently finished working his notice at City analyst Jefferies.May says the company aims to be a membership-based platform that will compete with the big property portals both on price and with new technology, offering an alternative way for house hunters to search for their next home, and for agents to generate leads.“We are putting the focus back on the individual agents, so if someone is very good at selling a niche type of property in a village and that’s what they earn their living from, we can now give them the opportunity to be at the top of search on Google,” say May (left).Rummage4 is charging agents £100 a month per branch compared to Rightmove’s £987 and Zoopla’s £350, and its platform is significantly different to that of the mainstream portals, offering a way for agents and their geographic and property-related specialisms to be discovered more easily via Google by house hunters.“Our search is a whole level up from what you currently get in the market,” says Anthony Codling (right). “Google’s whole reason for being is to organise the world’s data and to help people find what they’re looking for, and we will help Google find what agents have got.”Codling also told The Negotiator that his company’s pricing is designed to offer both a transparent and level playing field as well as a fee structure linked to local house prices; Rummage4 will share both the “gain and the pain of the housing market,” he says.“We see the same opportunity as OnTheMarket; to offer agents a membership-based technology platform that offers an alternative to the current duopoly.” The company says it is expecting to grow organically through word of mouth.Read more about Rummage4.Jefferies Anthony Codling rummage4 December 3, 2018Nigel LewisOne commentChris Arnold, Agency Negotiation Agency Negotiation 4th December 2018 at 3:12 pmA lifeline for any Estate Agency.
