Mortgage approvals in unexpected rise

first_img Mortgage approvals rose unexpectedly in November to their highest level since July, but unsecured consumer lending suffered its biggest monthly fall since August, Bank of England figures showed.The mortgage approvals figures chime with an unexpected rise in the Nationwide house price index in December, though activity is still much lower than 12 months earlier and many economists predict continued property market weakness in 2011.Mortgage approvals for house purchase rose to 48,019 in November from 47,315 in October, in contrast to economists’ expectations for a slight fall to 47,000.Net consumer credit fell by £121m, its biggest drop since August, after a £298m rise in October.Analysts had forecast a 0.2bn rise in consumer credit lending.

They include a children’s prayer (written by 10-year-old Jackie from South Africa) and are available here.This year’s World Environment Day theme – Think.Eat.Save – encourages people worldwide to reduce their “foodprint.” According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), every year 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted. At the same time, one in every seven people in the world go to bed hungry and more than 20,000 children under the age of five die daily from hunger-related causes.Makgoba said: “In the story of the feeding of the five thousand we read “everyone ate, and had enough” (Mark 6:42).  This is a beautiful image of sharing, with everyone’s needs being met, and nobody going hungry. There is enough food in the world for our need, there is not enough for our greed. This World Environment Day I encourage Anglicans everywhere to think about what they eat, to eat food which is healthy and sustainable and to stop wasting food. Let us share today our daily bread.”The annual World Environment Day, launched in 1973, is run by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). It is commemorated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the Southern Hemisphere.The Sunday nearest to World Environment Day is celebrated in the church as Environment Sunday, although it can be observed on a date that suits individual churches.A soundbite featuring Makgoba may be downloaded for use on radio and online at www.churchofengland.org/media/1772243/archbishopcapetownmp3big.mp3World Environment Day is hosted by a different country every year – this year Mongolia – and has a different theme.

The site for the Paletz Moi House is a three-acre, heavily wooded site north of Durham, North Carolina and the campus of Duke University. From its high point, the site slopes steeply to the north and east and gradually to the west and south. Prevailing breezes come from the southwest and provide cooling breezes throughout the year. Views are excellent in all directions, suggesting that primary consideration should be about the light, solar orientation, and cooling breezes. Save this picture!© James WestRecommended ProductsSuspension SystemsMetawellAluminum Panels for Ceiling SailsSuspension SystemsGustafsSlated Timber Ceiling in EQT Corporate HeadquartersThe basic program called for a living room, dining room, kitchen, and three bedrooms. Because the house is very simply a live/work space, additional requirements included two offices each with specific spatial needs, a small screening room for 15 to 20 people, and multiple outdoor spaces with different light conditions throughout the day. The clients requested a house that would maximize natural light and breezes and give the feeling of living in the surrounding trees. Save this picture!© James WestThe house employs concrete block foundations and retaining walls to provide a platform that raises the steel and glass structure off the ground. By careful placement and design, these walls minimize the physical impact on the site. The main body of the house is a linear construction oriented on an east-west axis. This linear organization allows almost all of the spaces of the house to have three exposures. Save this picture!© James WestThe linear nature of the design maximizes the north/south exposures. Although the glass area on the south elevation is significant, deep mullions and a tight mullion pat¬tern provide sun shading. Low e glass is used throughout. A linear slot of operable windows, at a height of four feet along the southern and northern elevations, provides natural cool¬ing from breezes. Additional insulation in the walls and roof provide excellent insulation. Per-square-foot cost for heating and cooling is 40 percent less than the owners’ previous house.Save this picture!© James WestProject gallerySee allShow lessHelios Rehab Sanctuary [Solar + Healing] / Team CLSArticlesMyrtle Beach International Airport / inFORM StudioArticles Share United States “COPY” Paletz Moi Residence / Kenneth E.

It is a nearly zero-emission project: its casing and the use of an entirely local material allows for the reduction of waste and scraps. This and the use of raw earth make TECLA a pioneering example of low-carbon housing.Save this picture!© Iago CorazzaFor this project, Mario Cucinella Architects not only explored housing solutions in formal aesthetic terms, it also studied the building’s shape in relation to its climate and latitude.

Energy-Dense Biofuel From Cellulose Close To Being Economical

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 5, 2012 Facebook Twitter SHARE A new Purdue University-developed process for creating biofuels has shown potential to be cost-effective for production scale, opening the door for moving beyond the laboratory setting. A Purdue economic analysis shows that the cost of the thermo-chemical H2Bioil method is competitive when crude oil is about $100 per barrel when using certain energy methods to create hydrogen needed for the process. If a federal carbon tax were implemented, the biofuel would become even more economical. H2Bioil is created when biomass, such as switchgrass or corn stover, is heated rapidly to about 500 degrees Celcius in the presence of pressurized hydrogen. Resulting gases are passed over catalysts, causing reactions that separate oxygen from carbon molecules, making the carbon molecules high in energy content, similar to gasoline molecules. The economic analysis, published in the June issue of Biomass Conversion and Biorefinery, shows that the energy source used to create hydrogen for the process makes all the difference when determining whether the biofuel is cost-effective. Hydrogen processed using natural gas or coal makes the H2Bioil cost-effective when crude oil is just over $100 per barrel. But hydrogen derived from other, more expensive, energy sources – nuclear, wind or solar – drive up the break-even point.”We’re in the ballpark,” said Wally Tyner, Purdue’s James and Lois Ackerman Professor of Agricultural Economics. “In the past, I have said that for biofuels to be competitive, crude prices would need to be at about $120 per barrel. This process looks like it could be competitive when crude is even a little cheaper than that.” Energy-Dense Biofuel From Cellulose Close To Being Economical Home Energy Energy-Dense Biofuel From Cellulose Close To Being Economical The conversion process was created in the lab of Rakesh Agrawal, Purdue’s Winthrop E. Stone Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering. He said H2Bioil has significant advantages over traditional standalone methods used to create fuels from biomass.“The process is quite fast and converts entire biomass to liquid fuel,” Agrawal said. “As a result, the yields are substantially higher. Once the process is fully developed, due to the use of external hydrogen, the yield is expected to be two to three times that of the current competing technologies.” The model Tyner used assumed that corn stover, switchgrass and miscanthus would be the primary feedstocks. The analysis also found that if a federal carbon tax were introduced, driving up the cost of coal and natural gas, more expensive methods for producing hydrogen would become competitive. “If we had a carbon tax in the future, the break-even prices would be competitive even for nuclear,” Tyner said. “Wind and solar, not yet, but maybe down the road.” The U.S. Department of Energy and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research funded the research. Agrawal and his collaborators received a U.S. patent for the conversion process. Source: Purdue SHARE Agrawal said he and colleagues Fabio Ribeiro, a Purdue professor of chemical engineering, and Nick Delgass, Purdue’s Maxine Spencer Nichols Professor of Chemical Engineering, are working to develop catalysts needed for the H2Bioil conversion processes. The method’s initial implementation has worked on a laboratory scale and is being refined so it would become effective on a commercial scale. “This economic analysis shows us that the process is viable on a commercial scale,” Agrawal said. “We can now go back to the lab and focus on refining and improving the process with confidence.” Previous articleGary Wilhelmi 6/5/2012 PM CommentNext articleNational Pork Board Elects New Officers Gary Truittlast_img read more

A Warm Up Is On The Way, But So Is More…

The problem  is that more rain is also on the way. Growing degree days in May have been on the light side, and this has slowed crop emergence. But HAT meteorologist Ryan Martin says the rest of this week will be warmer, “We will see temperatures move back toward the more normal range on Friday and over the weekend, but I do not see a major warm spell coming. It will be a case of us slowly climbing back to normal temperatures over the next few weeks.” He added that he does not see a major heat wave coming to stress the young crops either.Indiana lags behind in planting progress, and Martin says catching up may be difficult with very short planting windows in the forecast, “We are going to have 2 or 3 days of dry weather at a time, and that is about all.”  He said the forecast calls for dry conditions Thursday through Saturday with rain returning on Sunday and into the first part of the week, “We may see a dry spell about mid-week next week, but then more rain back in the forecast.”  He predicts a start and stop pace of planting and expects a good deal of nervousness when it comes to getting crops planted over the next few weeks.Weather extremes have been impacting other part of the Midwest. The mercury dipped to below freezing in part of the Dakotas this week; heavy rains have caused flooding and crop damage in parts of the south and in areas of Nebraska.  Martin says these extremes should begin to minimize as we move into June but, if replanting  is needed, it  may be hard to get accomplished. “I think there will be a great deal of nervousness as we move into early June,” He stated.Martin’s exclusive corn and soybean forecast is available on HAT’s web site and free mobile app. By Gary Truitt – May 19, 2015 SHARE A Warm Up Is On The Way, But So Is More Rainlast_img read more
