It will also carry the essentials for human survival, like air and water. valued at €390m (£310m), the contract was signed by officials from the two parties in Berlin. Witnesses present included representatives from the German federal government, the German space agency, NASA and US industry. An initial, unmanned flight test due to take place late in 2017. If the test is successful, Orion will be used to transport humans first to an asteroid and then to Mars.  “It is of course my wish to have a European astronaut – a man or a woman – on board the Orion capsule sometime in the next decade,” Thomas Reiter, ESA’s human space flight director, told the BBC. “I don’t think it is too far-fetched to believe that with this path we have now opened, we will get flight opportunities.” Most of the section will be developed in Germany, but some minor components will be transported from other parts of Europe. The main body of Orion is being built by the American firm Lockheed Martin.  But the US is not paying anything for the extra part being developed in Europe – it falls under a “barter agreement” between the two powers over their space activities. In return for the ESA’s help with Orion, the US will cover any costs Europe incurs at the International Space Station (ISS) between 2018 and 2020.  Long-term, it is hoped that this will lead to an ongoing relationship between the Europe and the US, in which ESA and Airbus work together to provide hardware for every Orion mission.   Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Oil drops again as the International Energy Agency slashes its growth forecast

Oil prices fell again this morning, after the International Energy Agency (IEA) slashed its forecast for growth in the oil sector.According to the IEA’s monthly oil market report, global growth in the market will hit 900,000 barrels a day next year, 230,000 fewer than previously expected. As a result of the report,  Brent Crude fell 43 cents to $63.25 a barrel, while US WTI Crude dropped 67 cents to $59.28.The $1bn question is how falling prices will affect the market. Although consumers are expected to have more spare cash and companies in oil-reliant industries, such as airlines, are expected to benefit, the IEA suggested the stimulus effect of falling prices “may be modest”.Antoine Halff, the report’s author, pointed out “the global economy remains weak, there is no wage growth, there is little consumer spending and the main concern is deflation, all of which is feeding into each other”.Earlier this week Goldman Sachs economist Kevin Daly suggested if prices continue to fall, the price of petrol could drop as low as £1.05, a level which has not been seen since August 2009.And although analysts at DNB Markets have lowered their forecast for prices to “slightly below” $60 in early 2015, Iranian oil minister Bijan Namdar Zangeneh has suggested prices could be pushed as low as $40.  whatsapp Tags: Oil priceslast_img read more

Barratt, Taylor Wimpey and Bellway among 16 national house builders to sign up to government’s Starter Homes initiative

first_img whatsapp Share Catherine Neilan Tags: Barratt Developments Bellway Company Taylor Wimpey UK house prices whatsapp Barratt, Taylor Wimpey and Bellway among 16 national house builders to sign up to government’s Starter Homes initiative center_img Some of the UK’s biggest property developers have signed up to a new government scheme designed to help first-time buyers get a foot on the ladder.  Avant, Barratt, Taylor Wimpey and Bellway are among 16 house builders to have put their name to the scheme, which offers first-time buyers under the age of 40 a discount of 20 per cent on a new-build property.  A further 15 smaller builders, and members of the Federation of Master Builders, have also pledged their support for Starter Homes, which is expected to create 100,000 homes. The first raft of houses is expected to be available from next year.  The government is able to offer buyers the discount by changing the planning system so that planning costs and levies are dropped from under-used or “unviable” brownfield sites so that developers can sell them on for below market value.  Local authorities including the Bexley, Windsor and Maidenhead, Trafford, Poole, Wychavon, South Holland,    Cheshire West and Chester, Sevenoaks and North Norfolk have pledged to support the scheme.   The launch has come six months earlier than expected. Prime Minister David Cameron had set out the plan initially at the Conservative party conference earlier this year, and it was expected to be part of his manifesto pledge.  Cameron said: “Hardworking young people want to plan for the future and enjoy the security of being able to own their own home. I want to help them do just that… This is all part of our long-term economic plan to secure a better future for Britain, making sure we are backing those who work hard and get on in life.” Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation, added: “Increasing housing supply is a huge and complex challenge and significant barriers remain. Bringing forward more land for house building, while also enabling more first-time buyers to realise their ambition of home ownership would be another positive step on the way to tackling the housing shortage. “The industry is keen to work with government to develop policies that would allow for more high quality homes to be built in the right places.” Sir Terry Farrell CBE, founding partner at Farrells, will sit on a design panel alongside Sir Quinlan Terry and Roger Scruton to “ensure that new homes are not only lower cost but also high quality and well-designed”.  Farrell said:  This panel has the potential to make a real difference. It builds on the recommendations of the Farrell Review, which highlighted the need for more proactive planning and better placemaking as we attempt to address the housing crisis, with radically higher priority given to landscape, sustainability and the public realm. Only by planning and designing our villages, towns and cities together with local communities can we create the kind of built environment we all aspire to and should be demanding. The government is now running a consultation on plans, which will be open for eight weeks.  Below is the full list of those who have signed up so far Major developers AvantBarrattBloorCalaCountrysideCrestLinden/Galliford TryMillerPersimmonRedrowTaylor WimpeyBellwayCapital and CentricGraingerMount AnvilDevelopment Securities Smaller house builders Affleck Property ServicesBadger Building (E Anglia)Border Craft HomesCarr & Carr (Builders)EntrenchFarnham Bros (Youldon & Barrett)Humber Construction Brick BaronJohn Collis GroupKeigar HomesN London ConstructionREB South WestSwale Valley ConstructionSwallow Hill HomesSwan Homes (East Midlands)Tilbury ProjectsBeattie Passiv Local authorities  London Borough of BexleyPoole Borough Council (South West)Wychavon District Council (West Midlands)South Holland District CouncilRoyal Borough of Windsor and MaidenheadTrafford CouncilCheshire West and Chester CouncilSevenoaks District CouncilNorth Norfolk District Council The Design Panel includes: Sir Terry FarrellSir Quinlan TerryRoger Scruton And representatives from: Design CouncilCreate StreetsRoyal Institute of British Architects (RIBA)Royal Town and Planning Institute (RTPI)  Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHero WarsAdvertisement This game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsUndoTele Health DaveRemember Pierce Brosnan’s Wife?

Culture secretary confirms UK government will push for Fifa reform

first_imgThe UK government has said that it will do all it can to bring about change in Fifa, following the “disappointing” re-elected of president Sepp Blatter.Secretary of state for culture, media and sport, John Whittingdale, echoed Prime Minister David Cameron’s calls for Blatter to step down.  Amid arrests of senior Fifa officials over corruption allegations, he dubbed Blatter’s reputation “utterly destroyed”. Read more: As the Fifa corruption crisis continues, should sponsors be considering pulling back cash?Responding to an urgent question in Parliament, Whittingdale said:Fifa’s support for its discredited president was incredibly disappointing. But it will not have surprised the footballing public who have become increasingly cynical as the allegations of misconduct and malfeasance have piled up.He criticised Fifa’s voting system, saying it “support[ed] the incumbent”, while adding that “what remained of Sepp Blatter’s credibility has been utterly destroyed”. More than 70 national associations voted against Blatter in the presidency elections, a sign, said Whittingdale, showing that “momentum is building against him”.Blatter has refused to step down as Fifa president despite appeals for him to do so. He has not been accused of any wrongdoing himself, despite senior officials in the organisation being arrested.  Culture secretary confirms UK government will push for Fifa reform by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunInvestment GuruRemember Cote De Pablo?

Quilter boss Martin Baines has been promoted to head the new division, with Quilter Cheviot and Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI) sitting in the unit. Current OMGI boss Julian Ide is leaving the company and Buxton will replace him. Industry veteran David Loudon has been promoted to lead Quilter as part of the restructure. Buxton’s move to combine executive duties with his responsibility as a fund manager could raise eyebrows, but yesterday he promised to remain focused on running money. “Investment remains my first passion and priority – I would not have accepted any additional responsibilities which would compromise my ability to invest on my clients’ behalf,” he said.

But how does yesterday compare with some of the worst market crashes in history? We’ve taken some of the market’s most painful days, looking at the falls from the peak of the market to its trough – and it’s not pretty. In percentage terms, recent falls in China measure up worse than the burst of the dot com bubble and Black Monday of 1987 – but still not quite as bad as the aftermath of Lehman Brothers in 2008, or the Great Crash of 1929.

There were sharp declines in sentiment towards stocks in emerging markets, the UK and Japan as well as commodities. Many commodities have plummeted in price as growth in China, the world’s second largest economy and one of the world’s biggest importers of commodities, loses momentum.Investors were also concerned about the Federal Reserve raising interest rates this week for the first time since 2006. Polarised views on whether the US central bank will opt to hike has led to further market volatility, Lloyds Bank said.Eurozone stocks saw an increase in optimism, possibly due to the European Central Bank’s ongoing stimulus measures. Gold, often seen as a safe haven in stormy markets, also saw a rise in sentiment. “Investor sentiment has this month taken a massive step backwards driven by concerns about the unfolding trajectory of economic activity in China. As the world’s second-biggest economy and its understandable powerhouse status on the world stage, China’s troubles will inevitably impact the global economy,” said Ashish Misra, head of portfolio specialists at Lloyds Bank Private Banking.“In a reversal of last month, sentiment towards gold has jumped in September. In times of volatility, people look to the perceived safe-haven qualities of gold and this has once again been the case in recent weeks, which we may expect to continue in the short-term as uncertainty and investor anxiety holds to present elevated levels.” Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?
