first_imgWednesday 23 March 2011 9:09 pm Share THE government has announced measures intended to lure multinationals back to the UK and has promised a review on the taxation of profits made outside the country.The Chancellor said during his Budget announcement yesterday: “I want Britain to be the place international businesses go to, not the place they leave.” He claimed that the measure will “give us a far more attractive system than France, America or Germany”.The headline change to Controlled Foreign Company (CFC) tax rules means that company units set up abroad in order to finance foreign ventures will see taxes on their earnings decrease to a minimal rate of 5.75 per cent by 2014, instead of being taxed as part of a firm’s overall profits.This is even lower than the previously announced rate of eight per cent, a change that PwC’s Claire Evans called “really exciting”.The government has also promised to review the taxation of foreign branches of UK companies so that they are taxed like subsidiaries of multinational groups, which have more generous tax terms under current laws.A full review of CFC rules is due to be published in May, with the Treasury currently consulting on the measures. The key issue is how the UK taxes profits that companies make abroad. While the Budget sharply reduced taxes on earnings made for financing foreign investment, it has yet to declare its policy on general earnings made overseas.The consultation is part of an effort to tempt back companies like WPP, Google, Wolsely, UBM and Shire, which have all moved their European headquarters into more tax-friendly domiciles. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBePeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULLcenter_img whatsapp Global firms welcome relief on foreign earnings Show Comments ▼ 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 WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

LGS(light gauged section) lip channel is light in weight, easily transported and processed.  Using its distinct quality, this house is built and fabricated with lip channels almost like a wooden construction.  In the factory, channels are cut, holes are made, joint hardware is built for each connection, and the strategy to save constructing space at the site was planned.  Once the foundation is completed, delivered from the factory, the prefabricated channels and joint hardware were put together with bolts and nuts exclusively. Save this picture!© Masafumi HaradaThe steel frame was assembled quickly due to the light weight of the LGS lip channel enabling one builder to carry it.  Due to the load of the house being light, the foundation didn’t require any pile and the simplified foundation construction contributed to reducing the cost.  The floor, wall and roof consist of panels with enough strength and rigidity to allow fastening directly to the frame without the need for backing, greatly reducing cost and time of construction.  The steel frame was left exposed and the details were designed to be seen.  Finally an eave and a balcony were provided according to the client’s need as an option and they were fastened directly to the structure with bolts and nails. These options made the house unique and its style expresses the client’s personality and flair as a result.Save this picture!SectionAs a residential project, both the residential environment and the expression of building and design methods were given careful consideration.  The flag shaped site is surrounded by other buildings.  With parking lots in both front and back, the nature of any future built projects near the site is unknown.  With that condition in mind, the house is built to protect privacy under all circumstances, and acts as a border between the surrounds and indoor living environment.  Windows wrapping the house above and below were carefully balanced in order to create a comfortable, rhythmical living area while maintaining abundant light and a tranquil, private bedroom.  The project began as a request from an experienced steel fabricator wishing to commence a new housing projects, and this LGS HOUSE can be considered as a first prototype in that series.Save this picture!© Masafumi HaradaProject gallerySee allShow lessBallarat Community Health Primary Care Centre / DesignIncSelected ProjectsHydronaut / Studiobird + Mark RichardsonSelected Projects Share ArchDaily 2014center_img Houses Area:  52 m² Area:  52 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” photographs:  Masafumi HaradaPhotographs:  Masafumi Harada Japan Save this picture!© Masafumi Harada+ 24 Share 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/631858/house-01-boundary-house-niji-architects Clipboard Architects: Niji Architects Area Area of this architecture project Photographslast_img read more

It is, a thread of light infiltrating into a small gap. It is a little house built on 56.2㎡ size of land. The deformed geographic figure makes the land look even smaller. However, the dwelling family and their lifestyle are never so small compared to the geographic size. The mission was a single-family house with a workshop in the basement. Young married couple with one little daughter chose this land adjacent to an elementary school. The size of land may not large, but the plan of uses are plenty.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooSave this picture!Urban ContextSave this picture!© In Keun RyooThe couple could not leave Seoul (the capital city of South Korea) due to their occupational and nurturing reasons. Therefore, their choice was to build a dwelling on a piece of land in the suburbs, free from restraints in social activities and child care. This way, they decided to build ‘their’ house for the first time ever.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooI named the project: ‘CREVICE’- A small land amid a big city. Physically, the word means ’a small, narrow crack or space’ (Cambridge Dictionary), but it can also be used as an ’opportunity’ or ‘spare time’. My definition of the word is the ‘Light Gap’ open to a bright thread of light.Save this picture!Floor PlansAfter launching the concept, ‘Crevice’ became the title theme of the entire plan. I intended to avoid the small space from looking confined, through the shape of the windows, the method of lighting, and the sense of connectivity between floors. From where I stand, I wanted the dwellers to be able to recognize the movements at the floors above and below and maintain a visual connection.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooThe inside was planned to use ‘skip-floor’: a structure with divisions from the landing on one side. The small inner part features spaciousness, thanks to the ‘crevice’ between the floors. Most of the small suburban areas have narrow roads. In this case, the road facing the planned site is 6 meters wide. Thus, there could be embarrassing risks in privacy through front windows of houses across the road.Save this picture!Perspective SectionHence, the house is designed to receive suns through the window at the southern corner, and all remaining windows are placed to secure privacy from neighboring buildings as much as possible. The configuration of all the programs is in vertical. Nearly every movement between spaces require the use of stairs which initially to segment the spaces that are being frequently used and those are not in order to efficiently compose the program.Save this picture!© In Keun RyooBuilding houses in suburb area do face many challenges. Trace of a not well-maintained area and the physical environment cause troubles during the construction.

Williamson questions a few of the central bank’s policies and the effect they have had on the economy.In a section of the white paper titled “Unconventional Monetary Policy After the Great Recession,” Williamson covers three areas which he says comprised a program of “unconventional policy” by the Fed starting in 2009: The zero interest-rate policy (ZIRP); quantitative easing, or large-scale asset purchases; and forward guidance.Even though the Fed’s ZIRP is nothing new, since the interest rate on reserves during the Great Depression was zero, Williamson points out that it is unprecedented in post-1951 United States. He contends that the ZIRP period constitutes a “liquidity trap” in which reserves and Treasury bills are “essentially equal assets.” Williamson said that the zero interest rates enacted by the Fed in 2008 and are still in place have not had their intended effect on inflation. Instead, he said, “the relevant long-run determinant of inflation, in a nominal-interest-rate-targeting monetary regime, is the level of the nominal interest rate. Indeed, mainstream monetary theory and the experience of Japan for the last 20 years tells us that extended periods of ZIRP lead to low inflation, or even deflation.”It is possible, Williamson said, for the Fed to become permanently trapped in ZIRP because of the Taylor rule that dictates how much the Fed should raise rates in response to other economic conditions.”If the playbook for the Fed’s forward guidance in the post-Great Recession period was supposed to have come from received macroeconomic theory, then it seems clear that the FOMC was not following instructions correctly.””With the nominal interest rate at zero for a long period of time, inflation is low, and the central banker reasons that maintaining ZIRP will eventually increase the inflation rate,” Williamson wrote. “But this never happens and, as long as the central banker adheres to a sufficiently aggressive Taylor rule, ZIRP will continue forever, and the central bank will fall short of its inflation target indefinitely.”QE, which consisted of purchases of long-maturity Treasury securities and mortgage-backed securities, has served to increase the Fed’s balance sheet by more than four-fold since before the crisis and substantially increase the average maturity of the Fed’s assets, according to Williamson. But while the Fed’s rationale for QE was articulated by then-chairman Ben Bernanke in 2012, Williamson said that the theory behind QE is “not well-developed.””Further there is no work, to my knowledge, that establishes a link from QE to the ultimate goals of the Fed inflation and real economic activity,” Williamson wrote. “Indeed, casual evidence suggests that QE has been ineffective in increasing inflation. For example, in spite of massive central bank asset purchases in the U.S., the Fed is currently falling short of its 2 percent inflation target.”Janet Yellen, Chair of the Board of Governors Federal Reserve SystemForward guidance was an attempt on the part of the Fed to provide more explicit information on policy statements instead of letting the central bank’s actions speak for themselves, according to Williamson. Like the ZIRP, however, Williamson says the Fed’s forward guidance may have had the opposite effect of what was intended.”If the playbook for the Fed’s forward guidance in the post-Great Recession period was supposed to have come from received macroeconomic theory, then it seems clear that the FOMC was not following instructions correctly,” Williamson wrote. “‘Extended period’ is far too vague to have any meaning for market participants; monetary policy rules should be specified as contingent plans rather actions to take place at calendar dates; ‘thresholds’ are meaningless if nothing happens in response to crossing a threshold. Thus, the Fed’s forward guidance experiments after the Great Recession would seem to have done more to sow confusion than to clarify the Fed’s policy rule.”To read the complete white paper, click here.

It was an amazing thing.I was a pretty good spitter because I had a gap between my teeth that acted kind of like the sight on my BB gun. Mama said it wasn’t nice for little girls to spit. But the boys spit all the time. Boys could do a lot of fun things that it wasn’t nice for little girls to do. That’s why I spent a good bit of my time trying to kiss my elbow and turn myself into a boy. I was missing too much fun on account of being a girl.I wanted to spit and my best chance of doing so was to dip snuff.Plain ol’ spitting was a sin.We learned in Sunday school that when Jesus was on the cross those mean people spit on him. And right then and there, God made spitting a sin. If you spit on anybody, the devil would put his forked tail in you and you would have to be especially good all the rest of your life or the devil would keep you for his own.There wasn’t any way I could sneak snuff out of my grandmother’s pocketbook but Tince said she could get all the snuff she wanted from Amos. He had cans sitting around all around the house.Tince was older than I was and she got into all kinds of mischief, Eunice said. That’s why they had to be on their Ps and Qs when she came to their house. Well, I guess they forgot about their Ps and Qs one afternoon because Tince slipped a whole can of Rooster Snuff out of the house in her dress pocket.I had my mind set on Peach Sweet Snuff like my grandmother dipped.I imagined that it would taste like the sweet peaches from the volunteer trees along the fencerow down the pig trail from our house.But Tince said all snuff tastes alike – just like chocolate candy.We went out in the pasture and found a spot on top of the hill where we could take a dip and then stretch out on our backs and watch the clouds make pictures in the sky.Tince opened the can, tapped out a dip in the lid, pulled out her lip and filled it full. She tapped out another lid full and I pulled out my bottom lip and she filled it full.I didn’t quite get to the tonguing part of the dipping. I went into the full-blown spittin’ part … with some masterful gagging in between.That day, I learned a hard lesson. Your body does not generate enough spit to cleanse your mouth of a dip of snuff.And neither can you wipe away the lingering taste with the tail of your dress.Tince and I fell back on the grass, but we couldn’t watch the floating clouds. Our stomachs wouldn’t let us do that. And, on that bright sunny, summer afternoon, I was completely cured of any desire to take a dip of snuff.Mama was right. There are some things that nice little girls just don’t do.
