Leawood, Kansas, is a typical mid-ring suburb characterized by modest, well-built homes, a leafy hardwood tree canopy and good public schools that make it an attractive location for young families. Current trends (economic downturn notwithstanding) lean towards tearing down existing homes (arguably historical, with most homes in this part of Leawood having been built in the early 1940’s) and maximizing new designs to allowable build lines and volumes.Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair Recommended ProductsDoorsC.R.

We identified two locations where space could be better utilized – unused space above the garage and a small, north end attic adjacent to an existing children’s bedroom. Maintaining the overall form and character of the existing house was required by local architectural review board regulations. Ironic. More importantly, the regulations became a useful constraint in developing a complimentary contemporary aesthetic of expansive glazing and subtle detailing.Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair Project gallerySee allShow lessMAXXI Joins Young Architects ProgramArticlesBracket [on farming]Articles Share Tyler Residence / El DoradoSave this projectSaveTyler Residence / El Dorado Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/99000/tyler-residence-el-dorado Clipboard Area:  625 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: El Dorado Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Tyler Residence / El Dorado Projects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/99000/tyler-residence-el-dorado Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEl DoradoOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLeawoodHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 25, 2010Cite: “Tyler Residence / El Dorado” 25 Dec 2010.

Exiting the market at the wrong time ‘could cost more than 50%’

first_imgInvestors planning a tactical shift away from equities because of overstretched valuations risk substantial underperformance if they mistime their exit or re-entry, according to consultancy firm Cambridge Associates. In a new analysis of valuations and returns, Cambridge said that while valuations should not be ignored, investors who attempt to time the market risked missing out on the highest returns, which tend to be concentrated over very short periods.The consultancy said the high price-to-earnings ratios in some equity markets suggested low future returns, tempting investors to move substantial amounts out of the asset class.While UK equities were still within their ‘fair value’ range, Cambridge said, an analysis of 117 years of data showed that, from current valuation levels, subsequent 15-year real returns could be expected to be around 5%. However, the consultancy warned that, since 1900, being out of the market for just the two best quarters could cut the cumulative real returns on UK equities by more than 50%.Over the longer term, missing the 10 best quarters since 1900 resulted in more than 90% of the gain on UK equities being wiped out. Conversely, investors who miss the two worst quarters of returns would almost double their cumulative real gains on UK stocks, Cambridge reported.US equities showed an even more marked trend, the study found, with the best two quarters for returns comprising more than two thirds of the cumulative real returns since 1900.Alex Koriath, head of the European pensions practice at Cambridge Associates, said: “While no investor should be ignoring valuations, becoming too focused on timing an exit has substantial risks. The best periods for returns tend to be very concentrated, meaning that exiting at the wrong time could drag down cumulative returns significantly.“In the light of these reduced return expectations, some investors are seeking to lower fees by switching to an all-passive strategy through index tracking. But this actually maximises their exposure to any fall in the equity markets.“Now is the time for active management and low beta. Better returns might be delivered by a balanced long-term portfolio of equities and bonds, along with assets like absolute return hedge funds and less-correlated private market strategies, including both private equity and credit.”However, Koriath emphasised that his company was not advising a wholesale move into active management. “We are advising against carrying out a big tactical trade,” he said. “Instead, investors should include different styles and asset classes.”Making a big tactical shift out of equities would not be affordable for many pension funds with deficits, he added.He told IPE: “Moving out of risk assets means they can expect lower future returns, which means not achieving the target of 100% funding over the planned recovery period.”last_img read more

Final year for fertilizer applicator certification

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are now into our third and final year for fertilizer applicator certification for those applying fertilizer to 50 acres or more. Ohio State University Extension will be busy with meetings for Fertilizer Certification again this coming winter months, also known as meeting season. In 2014 and with further extensions in 2015, legislators have imposed new regulations on nutrient applications in Ohio. We just learned that the Ohio Department of Agriculture has certified more than 11,000 applicators in Ohio, with maybe another 6,000 to 8,000 to go before the September 30, 2017 deadline.Training programs for the certification are provided by the Ohio State University.To find meeting plans for your area of Ohio, go to: http://nutrienteducation.osu.edu. Information is also there to understand who needs the certification, and where to sign up for and attend meetings.If you have a Pesticide Applicators license, then likely you will also need to be certified for fertilizer application; over the next winter as you re-certify for your pesticide license you can also choose to be fertilizer applicator certified at a two-hour meeting. If this is your year for pesticide license re-certification then you can find those meeting locations here: http://pested.osu.edu/Private_recert.For those new or younger folks who will be applying fertilizer, you will attend a three-hour long program; check the Nutrient Education website and just look for those comprehensive three-hour meetings.And as we get closer to winter meeting season we will post those regional and area agronomy and update meetings. Our Agronomic Crops Team calendar is pretty thin now, but will be full before Christmas. So check our website: http://agcrops.osu.edu/events/calendar, for the events and their locations. A couple of events on my calendar for crop producers include:• The Ohio No-Till Conference is December 7th at the Der Dutchman Restaurant, 445 S. Jefferson, Plain City. For more information: https://ohionotillcouncil.com/2016/11/15/2016-winter-conference/.• And the annual Ohio Grain Farmers Symposium on December 20, 2016, at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center in Columbus.

Even when we had a few problems in midfield with Ampadu, he was running for two. “His commitment was great and you want him to have performances like that so he can put some doubts in Maurizio’s mind and be in contention for a place.” last_img read more

Gibson Surge in VLCC Orders amid Attractive Prices

first_imgzoom Attractive newbuilding prices have pushed the order count for very large crude carriers (VLCC) to around 30 so far this year, which is more than double when compared to last year’s 13 orders for the entire year.What is more, a number of owners, not just VLCC owners, are considering investment in new tonnage and are actively talking to shipyards, Gibson Shipbrokers said in its latest weekly tanker market report.However, as disclosed, ordering activity in other tanker categories remains restricted, although some modest gains have been observed in the Aframax and LR2 sectors.Ship values dropped on the back of last year’s turmoil in the shipbuilding industry, which has been hit by a prolonged period of low ordering activity in a number of shipping sectors, including tankers. The plunge in ordering appetite has resulted in restructuring and consolidation across the board, with some shipbuilders, such as STX shipbuilding, even resorting to court led restructuring.As a result, this year tanker newbuild values reached their lowest levels since late 2003/early 2004, Gibson added.However, the latest wave of new tanker orders has occurred against deteriorating trading conditions. Namely, spot earnings in the product tanker market have been very weak for quite some time, frequently falling to or even below the level of fixed operating expenses. The crude tanker market has fared better, VLCCs in particular; yet, even here earnings so far this year have been notably lower relative to 2016. While returns in the market are being pressured, the orderbook is still far from being modest, the report reads.Apart from low price levels, ordering a new tanker now offers an additional benefit – delayed delivery due to a lengthy construction period, which will enable the owner to take control of the asset once the current phase of rapid fleet growth is over and/or is approaching its end.Furthermore, as explained by Gibson, owners making a decision to order will have the flexibility to have their tonnage prepared in a most efficient and practical way for the approaching key legislation: the Ballast Water Treatment Management convention, which will come into force in September this year and the 0.5% global sulphur cap for marine fuels, effective January 2020.“There is clearly some sound logic behind ordering a tanker now, which suggests that firmer interest in newbuild tonnage is unlikely to disappear anytime soon. However, access to new finance remains at highly restricted levels, while it is more challenging to advocate the case for new investment while returns in the industry are weak and/or are deteriorating. As such, only those with strong financial muscle are likely be in a position to capitalise on the current set of circumstances,” the shipbroker concluded.last_img read more

Comcast talking to Fox about a deal source says

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Comcast is in discussions with 21st Century Fox about buying its movie studio, some cable channels and its international arms, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. This person wouldn’t discuss the matter publicly.The conversations are at a very early stage, and there’s no guarantee that a deal would be finalized, this person said Thursday.Comcast is interested in the same Fox assets that, according to reports last week, Disney had previously looked at, this person said. Those would include European broadcaster Sky and Star India, the National Geographic and FX cable channels and the company’s film studio. Fox owns 39 per cent of Sky and wants to buy the rest of it, but it has run into problems with U.K. regulators, in part over concerns about the sexual harassment scandals at Fox News.The Wall Street Journal and CNBC earlier reported on Comcast’s interest in Fox.If such a deal took place, it would leave Fox with its Fox News channel, sports channels, the Fox broadcast network and several TV stations.Selling the entertainment business would be a good deal for Fox, said MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson. “Maybe, just maybe, the company is acknowledging that the outlook for film has changed from an ok business to a bad business for everyone not owning a massive stable of global franchises,” he wrote in a note last week.The company may have realized it has a “better edge” in sports and news, he said, and that the investment needed to build out a streaming service, like Disney is doing , may be too much for Fox.Other companies may also want the Fox assets. A person close to the matter, who wouldn’t speak publicly, said Verizon is not in active discussions with Fox, but that Verizon might be interested in some parts of Fox’s business.U.S. cable and telecom companies have been buying up media assets and launching advertising businesses in the past several years. Comcast, the country’s largest cable company, finished buying NBCUniversal’s cable channels and movie studio in 2013 and added Dreamworks Animation in 2016.Last year, AT&T agreed to buy Time Warner, the owner of the Warner Bros. movie studio and networks including CNN and HBO, for $85 billion. Regulators have taken a tougher-than-expected stance on that deal and have yet to clear it.Reports that the Murdoch family could sell parts of its empire came as a surprise last week. The company has previously focused on building its business, and even offered to buy Time Warner in 2014. Fox was rebuffed.last_img read more
