Online retail sucks life out of high street

first_img ONLINE retail is growing six times faster than high street sales and is forecast to hit £37bn a year by 2014, according to a retail survey.The rapid expansion is hitting high street retailers who are struggling to remain competitive with 40,000 shops closing over the past decade.Smartphones are fuelling the rapid online sales growth as customers place orders on-the-go. The Webloyalty Online Retail Report by Verdict Research predicts that current internet spending will grow by £14bn from 2010 to 2014. Many more familiar brands will disappear from town centres as a growing number of retailers close shops and trade solely on websites, according to the research. Chains including Woolworths, Etam, Littlewood and Zavvi (all pictured right) have already moved online after their stores were closed following plummeting sales and expensive overheads.Just over half of UK consumers currently use their mobiles during the purchasing process, but in the next five years this is expected to hit 80 per cent, according to the research. Neil Saunders, an analyst at Verdict said: “Shoppers after a better deal will use their mobile to compare and find prices. “Retailers that survive on the high street will be those that combine their online stores with mobile apps that offer shoppers a better deal using location-based offers.”Almost half of all Brits own a smartphone – which will be how shoppers locate and compare the best prices in the very near future, he said.This move away from the high street is also reflected by the continued growth of out-of-town shopping centres. Out of town retail space grew 34 per cent from 2000 to 2009, while high street space shrank by 8.9 per cent, the research found. The move was triggered by the soaring costs of rents and rates, according to the report. whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Sharecenter_img Monday 18 April 2011 7:40 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapPink Floyd’s Roger Waters Denies Zuckerberg’s Request to Use Song in Ad:The WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

The landscape of the site faces the Cheonggye House at the southwest and is surrounded by mountains on all sides. The mountains behind the Cheonggye Valley are located about 800 – 900m from the site, stretching out towards the heavens from the base of Mount Jiri, and in contrast, the lake, as if drawing from this power, achieves a carefree, tranquil demeanor. A manmade reservoir, the lake in front of the site (222,084 m²)is an element of the landscape that did not originally exist. Perhaps this is why such dramatic and mysteriously incidental scenes are produced around this place as if it were a place that even the gods could not have predicted.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonSave this picture!Site and Floor PlansSave this picture!© Joonhwan YoonWith only a few neighbors in this place, there are no political or social confrontations. There exists only an earnest dialogue between man and nature. The first method of the dialogue was an interpretation of the ‘boundary’ where man meets nature – that is to say, the reinterpretation of general elements forming the boundaries of architecture such as land, walls, apertures, and landscapes – to create a structure that communicates and does not disconnect. Second, the structure was planned to allow communication between inside and outside and between man and nature, through the various gaps that man has created in terms of his stance towards nature.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonBeautiful natural sceneryThe landscape has the Cheonggye reservoir to the front to the southwest and is surrounded by mountains. These mountains, situated at the back of Cheonggye valley at approximately 800-900m from the ground level, powerfully spread toward the foot of Jirisan (Mount. Jiri) and upward to form a shortcut to the sky. In contrast, the tranquil lake sits quietly as if it absorbs this force. The lake (222,084㎡) in front of the land is an artificial lake that did not exist before. Because of this, more dramatic, mysterious and accidental scenery has been formed around this. Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonWhere season change and natural phenomenon are viewed at one glanceThe natural scenery surrounding the lake provides clear views on the changes of four seasons. To convey and feel the most natural phenomenon intimately connected to the sensory organs of the human body such as colors, temperature, humidity, dry season and raining season in one structure with entirety, we have observed changes of various seasons and conducted designs by setting up the principles regarding the way humans intervene in the nature. Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonLife in natureWhen life is exposed to the nature outside the city, we call it pastoral life or the back-to-earth movement.

Corn and Soybeans in 2020 Tell the Tale of Two Yields

first_img Facebook Twitter Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Yields are all over the board across Indiana and corn in the northern two-thirds of the state is a good example. It has ranged from 125-150 bushels on higher ground where there was limited moisture to as high as 330 bushels on prime ground right near the Indiana-Illinois state line. In the new Specialty Hybrids Yield Check agronomist Tom Manney also reports a yield monitor that hit 103 during soybean harvest, but other yields are down at 30 bushels.Manney says it has been a tale of two yields this year, especially for dry land corn.“When you get up into my area around Ft. Wayne, things got really dry in August, so in the high land you’re seeing lower than expected yields and down on the bottoms you’re seeing higher than expected yields,” he said. “Hopefully everything kind of evens out alright and as a whole it’s been good. As you move south and closer to Illinois over on the prairie soil, yields have been really strong.”The remainder of harvest Manney is encouraging growers to hit corn harvest hard, even if you have moisture levels not yet down where you would like them.“Grain prices are higher than expected this year so my ask for guys is, even if your corn is running 20 percent’ish and you like to run it at 16%, I would say go get that corn and get it harvested so you don’t have to worry about standability or further rain events or issues coming in November,” he told HAT. “So up front, pay for that drying cost and really you’re going to come out ahead in my opinion.”As anhydrous applications begin in some parts of Indiana, Manney says monitor weather forecasts and make sure you spray when soil temperatures are at 50 degrees and will stay below that mark. He also encourages taking soil samples this year and making notes throughout your fields on where weed escapes are and whether you have drainage issues.

Consultation on redundancies preserves jobs

first_imgConsultation on redundancies preserves jobsOn 30 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Companiesthat consult with staff over redundancies end up saving jobs, according toresearch by law firm Allen & Overy. Thesurvey shows that employers are being more innovative in seeking alternativesto redundancy. To make short-term cost savings, employers are offeringre-training, part-time working, secondments, trial periods, salary reductionsand sabbaticals. Morethan three-quarters of employers consider redeploying staff to other divisions,and nearly half consider other companies.KarenSeward, employment law partner of Allen & Overy, said: “The introduction ofthese solutions reflect employers’ desire to retain skilled employees in thelong-term, while resolving short-term financial concerns.”However,the study also shows 28 per cent of the 125 large organisations that respondedhave failed to consult on collective redundancies in the past two years. Performanceand skills are key retention factors in the redundancy selection process, withemployers taking a more strategic view in highly-competitive market   Comments are closed. last_img read more

Stand Down Event Aims to Combat Veteran Homelessness

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare SEPTEMBER 16TH, 2018 TYRONE MORRIS EVANSVILLE, INDIANAHomeless veterans in Evansville receive a helping hand to prepare for winter. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1114 and Marion VA Medical Center hosted the annual ‘Stand Down for Homeless Veterans’ event.Boots, blankets, sweatshirts and many personal hygiene items were given out to help those who may be sleeping outside in the cold winter months. All items were donated and the goal is to make sure these veterans are taken care of and not forgotten.Evansville VA Homeless Case Manager Dave Swenson says, “A lot more of our vets wind up homeless than anybody else statistically speaking and you know they’ve done their service to our country most of these guys. It’s nice to be able to give them a little hand up, come out here and support them and show them we care about them even though they may be a forgotten segment of society. We still know who they are, we care about them, we wish them well, and we want to try and give them a hand up.”The ‘Stand Down for Homeless Veterans’ event isn’t just here in the Tri-State.Groups across the country held similar events over the past week.last_img read more

Greensky Bluegrass Announces New Album, Tour With Circles Around The Sun & Billy Strings

first_imgAfter wrapping up their first leg of fall tour with Ghost Light and The Lil Smokies yesterday, Greensky Bluegrass has announced their ninth studio effort and a supporting winter tour with Circles Around The Sun, Billy Strings, and more. The upcoming new album, All For Money, is officially due out on January 18th, 2019. As promised by the band, they will be “sharing new music and behind the scenes footage from the recording sessions” across the coming weeks.“The title of the album comes from a song with the same name. I thought on this concept for a long time,” said Paul Hoffman in a press release. “This paradox that exists in doing what you love or having your dreams come true. We are so truly blessed. But also, what if the support and all the attention starts to feel like crowding and containment. I wanted to be careful about how to say this. It’s tricky. I’m not harboring any resent or regret. Far from it in fact. Pride and honor. But if we get tired or if we’re making decisions based on our needs to eat or the desires of others, well, that’s just not ‘doing what you love.’ The song and the album are so much about us. It’s about what we do and the love we receive in return. So ‘if you need a voice, I’m yours friend. For something better in the end.”Following the second leg of their fall tour, which will culminate with a four-night NYE run in Chicago, IL with Jeff Austin Band and Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Greensky Bluegrass will warm up this winter with a seven-date run with Circles Around The Sun. The swing with CATS will hit Albany, NY (1/10); Philadelphia, PA (1/11); New York, NY (1/12); Covington, KY (1/16); Nashville, TN (1/17); St. Louis, MO (1/18); and Atlanta, GA (1/19).Then, the jamgrass quintet will link up with another special guest yet-to-be-announced for a run through St. Petersburg, FL (1/22); Charleston, SC (1/23); Knoxville, TN (1/24); Raleigh, NC (1/25); and Charlotte, NC (1/26).

Belles invite fathers for Senior Dads Weekend

first_imgMembers of the Saint Mary’s class of 2014 and their fathers enjoyed events at Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame this weekend during the College’s annual Senior Dads Weekend. Susie Larson, vice president of the 2014 class board, who helped organize the event, said the board worked hard to find an open weekend for this event since last spring, because it had to account for the numerous events on campus and the football schedule. Larson said there was a great deal of interest in all of the scheduled events, which resulted in a large turnout from the senior class and their fathers. “The weekend had 280 students register and our class is 298 strong, so we were extremely excited about the turnout,” Larson said.  Student body president Kat Sullivan said the class board did a good job of including the entire senior class community. “Regardless of who the father figure is in a girl’s life, the class board made sure the events were welcoming to all, including some mothers,” Sullivan said.  The weekend’s events opened with a beer garden and silent auction Friday evening in the College’s Student Center.  Sullivan said the event included an open bar with all types of beer and wine, and the silent auction was filled with donated items from the fathers. “Whatever money that was made from the auction was then given to the class of 2014’s board, so it was a great way to fundraise for future class events,” Sullivan said.  “Also, everyone who went got a beer sty with a French cross on it and little koozies with bowties on them to commemorate the weekend.” On Saturday, the College Archives and the Riedinger House were open for morning tours. Sullivan said this helped the girls to share their College’s history with their fathers.  Senior Bridget Byrne said the tours of Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday afternoon were one of her favorite parts of the weekend, as well as a watch party for the Notre Dame vs. ASU game at CJ’s Bar later that evening. “I have always loved watching games with my Dad, so this was something special for us to do together before graduation,” Byrne said. “It was also so fun to do push-ups in CJ’s during the game watch, and I know all of my friends were really looking forward to this weekend after all of the fun we had at Junior Mom’s Weekend last spring.” The weekend culminated with Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in Le Mans Hall on Saturday night, Sullivan said.  At the Mass, Saint Mary’s students and their fathers celebrated their relationships.  The celebrant, Fr. John Pearson, stressed the importance of letting their parents know how grateful the students were for their love and support, Sullivan said.  “Fr. John talked a lot about making sure us girls recognized that our fathers make sacrifices for us not because they’re expecting a thank you, but because they love us,” Sullivan said. “I think that that really resonated with a lot of girls and their fathers that were present.” The parent weekends at Saint Mary’s are among many students’ favorite traditions on campus, Larson said. “I am a strong supporter in how Saint Mary’s organizes their parent weekends throughout our four years on campus because I think it reflects our experience growing as young women,” she said.
