Gross revenue at the mining company also increased to $177.7m for the year, up 88 per cent on the $94.4m recorded in the 12 months to 30 June 2009. The mining company, which owns six diamond mines in South Africa, attributed the turnaround in part to the discovery of a 507 carat rough diamond in its Cullinan mine with the rare stone netting $35.3m, the highest ever price paid on record for a rough diamond.Petra also put the turnaround down to the recovery in the diamond market and rough diamond prices from the previous year’s downturn when global production fell 25 per cent.It added the past twelve months had seen an increase in the volume and value of imported polished diamonds and consumer sales in the North American market.

whatsapp Thursday 30 September 2010 10:29 pm ENERGY suppliers will have to warn customers 30 days in advance before raising power and gas prices if a plan by watchdog Ofgem wins approval. Under current rules, suppliers can put up prices without notifying customers for up to 65 days afterwards.The rules will come into effect at the start of 2011, providing suppliers do not object. Energy secretary Chris Huhne has already warned that the government may take legal action against energy firms if they block reforms. “This is a welcome step forward in getting energy companies to play fair with their customers by giving advance notice of price increases,” said Huhne.He added: “It’s important people know about price hikes before they are charged, so they can budget.”The regulator said that new rules would give householders more chance to switch supplier or reduce their energy use to help counter the effect of increased prices.“This information makes it easier to shop around for a better energy deal and to evaluate the benefits energy efficiency measures can deliver,” said Andrew Wright, Ofgem’s senior partner for markets.Wholesale gas prices have soared in 2010, pushing up wholesale power prices and raising the possibility of further retail price hikes.

Enter Your Email Address Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 27th October, 2020 | More on: HSBA We don’t often see a bank leading the FTSE 100‘s biggest winners these days. But that happened Tuesday, with HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA) as much as 7% ahead at one point. And since a Covid-19 low on 25 September, the HSBC share price has climbed almost 20%. So, are my convictions that the Footsie banking sector is oversold finally proving correct?Well, before I go all “told you so“, the bigger picture must be examined. Even if HSBC investors have had a good month, they’re still down 44% year-to-date. And over five years, they’re sitting on a 34% loss. Tuesday’s rise in the HSBC share price is backed by something fundamental, though, in the shape of a third-quarter earnings update.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…HSBC has reported a pre-tax profit of $3.1bn in the third quarter. That’s down $1.8bn from the same quarter in 2019. But just seeing a bank recording a healthy profit in 2020 seems like very good news to me. And on an adjusted basis, the bank put its pre-tax profit at an even better $4.3bn, down $1.1bn. For the nine months, adjusted pre-tax profit comes in at $9.9bn. HSBC describes that as resilient, and I wholly agree.Healthy balance sheetOf course, it’s probably liquidity that counts more than anything for the HSBC share price right now. And on that front, I’d say HSBC is looking comfortable. The update showed adjusted deposits if $1.6tn, 12% ahead of the same point a year previously. And a CET1 ratio of 15.6% is a strong measure at any time, never mind in a period when banks are supposed to be under severe pressure.There’s going to be a fall in full-year earnings, for sure, but analysts predict a strong rebound in 2021. Based on that, the current HSBC share price indicates a price-to-earnings multiple of 10 while forecasts put the dividend yield at 7%. I think that’s way too cheap. But what might trigger an upwards rerating?Asian governments have achieved remarkably greater success at tackling Covid-19 than their Western counterparts. As a result, Asian economies are already recovering well from the worldwide slump.HSBC share price recovery ahead?The upcoming US presidential election is surely weighing heavily on the HSBC share price, though. Should Donald Trump win reelection, it seems likely he’ll reinforce his tough economic stance on China. And that would probably not be good for any global banks, let alone HSBC with its Chinese focus.But if Joe Biden wins, we’ll most likely see a softening of trade disputes with China. And, at least from an economic point of view, free trade is good. I think it would almost certainly boost HSBC’s prospects.Whatever happens politically, the banks do still face risks. And I expect bearish pressure will continue to hold back the HSBC share price along with the rest of the sector for some time. But I’m fully convinced that all of those risks are more than factored into today’s low banking share prices. So yes, I’d buy banks now. And yes, I’d buy HSBC. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

The Trefoil House inherited a pre-existing three-sided hearth and partial foundation, located on a rural sloped site in Stowe, Vermont. The house was reimagined using the hearth as a structural and narrative generator: The house is built out from its triangular core as three squares joined at the corners.Save this picture!© James LengThe three-sided hearth is used as a central program driver, producing a continuous trefoil circulation loop around the perimeter of each square and providing a central point of orientation while allowing for the house to spread into the landscape. Public spaces are enclosed in glass, while private spaces are shielded with sculpted louvers to differentiate the rotationally symmetric plan.Save this picture!Lower level planSave this picture!Upper level planA 150 foot long curtainwall wraps continuously around six sides of the house. The trefoil circulation allows for an unbroken perceptual experience of the pristine site, but critically also allows for an entirely wheelchair accessible upper level in order to accommodate the client’s elderly parents and an aging-in-place philosophy.Save this picture!© James LengTwo parallel driving forces propelled all design decisions.First, the desire to perceptually bring the incredible view into the interior. To accomplish this, we borrowed from the method of James Turrell’s skyspaces in which a square of open sky appears as a flattened image through the total reduction of the frame edge. All visible thresholds, sills, and headers to distinguish the passage from interior to exterior are eliminated.Save this picture!© James LengSecond, the need for complete accessibility on the upper level. The client and his parents work in the geriatric healthcare industry and are intimately acquainted with the architectural needs of the elderly. To allow for uninterrupted wheelchair access, thresholds, sills, and teak shower pans are flush, and the entire trefoil circulation path is accessible, broad, and clearly defined.Save this picture!© James LengThis productive convergence of perceptual and pragmatic needs allowed for design decisions from the scale of the detail to the scale of the building parti to satisfy both drives at once.Save this picture!© James LengProject gallerySee allShow lessHöweler + Yoon Architecture Unveils Circus Conservatory DesignArchitecture NewsEcological City Simulator Block’hood Launches on SteamArchitecture News Share Manufacturers: Vitro®, Ann Sacks, Tubelite, J.Roc Design, Living Roc Photographs: James Leng Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeJ.Roc DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesStoweUnited StatesPublished on May 13, 2017Cite: “Trefoil Glass House / J.Roc Design” 13 May 2017.

CAF expects to add further currencies to the service. If a donor chooses to make a gift in US dollars or Euros they will be debited in their own currency and CAF will convert the donation to UK sterling before passing it on to the charity.The service includes an online tracking facility also enables charities to identify which sites or e-mails their donations have originated from.Another new development is the introduction of a ‘Tell a Friend’ feature, which it is hoped will promote the online giving service to a wider group through “viral marketing.”Since its launch in 2002 almost half a million pounds has been raised through CAF’s Tailored Efundraising service. In addition, the proportion of donations given tax-effectively through the service is high; on average 78% of donations through Efundraising are made via Gift Aid compared to a sector average of 28%.Jenny Catt, CAF’s Business Development Manager, comments: “With the introduction of this new facility, we are delighted that we can now help charities to receive online gifts in foreign currencies – which we hope, in turn, will make international fundraising a real possibility for thousands of UK charities in the future.” 28 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charities Aid Foundation’s (CAF) online donation service efundraising.org.uk can now handle donations in foreign currencies.Charities using CAF’s Tailored Efundraising service will now be able to appeal for donations in foreign currencies through their Web sites.The Efundraising facility lets charities of any size accept secure, tax-effective credit/debit card and Direct Debit donations from their own Web site, without the need for a specialised trading and banking service.
