KCS-content Xstrata ups its copper production Tuesday 19 October 2010 7:50 pm whatsapp whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Xstrata, the miner, yesterday revealed mixed third-quarter production figures for its two key products, with an increase in copper output and a fall in coal, as strong commodity prices pointed to a surge in annual profit.The Anglo-Swiss company, which has switched focus from takeovers to building mines, also released initial data about the size of a copper deposit at its joint venture in Chile.Xstrata said production of mined copper increased 10 per cent to 233,647 tonnes during the three months to the end of September, due to improved mining rates and grades.Consolidated coal output fell five per cent to 21.9m tonnes following planned mine closures in Australia and South Africa and bad weather in Colombia.Copper is the group’s most important product, accounting for 43 per cent of first-half operating profit, while coal ranks second, making up 32 per cent.“While Xstrata’s third quarter production was certainly patchy, the company is very focused on growth and the board has approved some sizeable investments during the last few months,” said analyst Charles Kernot at Evolution Securities.The group also released the first resource estimate for the West Wall project in Chile, a 50:50 joint venture with Anglo American, showing it has four million tonnes of copper.“These exploration results confirm West Wall represents an important discovery with the potential to contribute to Xstrata Copper’s project development pipeline in Chile,” the company said. The price of copper is up 24 per cent on the same period a year ago. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter British Horseracing’s Executive Committee are working on plans to restart racing in the country on 1 June, after new government guidelines confirmed this as the earliest date from which sporting events may be held.Guidelines released yesterday (11 May) say sport may return – albeit without spectators – from 1 June, provided a number of key conditions are met to ensure the country-wide lockdown enforced as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) can be eased.While fans would not be present in order to reduce “large-scale social contact,” these sporting events would instead be broadcast to spectators. This would make the British Horseracing Authority’s intended May restart date impossible. Instead, the sport’s Executive Committee, which is made up of the British Horseracing Authority, the Racecourse Association, The Racehorse Owners’ Association and the National Trainers Federation, will aim to go live at the earliest possible opportunity, on 1 June.The committee said it would publish a timeline of the necessary steps towards the sport’s return within the next seven days. The British Horseracing Authority said it has held discussions with Public Health England and England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty, as well as officials in Scotland and Wales, to develop “new processes and protocols” in order to reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading.“The sport will be focusing its efforts during the remainder of May on finalising and agreeing these changes across the industry and supporting everyone to understand and adopt them,” the Authority said.The government also said that “leisure facilities” may open from 4 July if the virus continues to be controlled, but it did not mention casinos or betting shops specifically.Sport in the UK was suspended in March as the country locked down to limit the spread of the virus. The English Premier League suspended all games on 13 March after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi both tested positive for the disease.The English Football League, the organisation that manages the three divisions below the top-tier Premier League, also suspended all games, as did the FA Cup and Women’s Super League.Premier League clubs met yesterday (11 May) to determine a plan for resumption of the 2019-20 season but are yet to announce any concrete plans. Premier League chief exectuvie Richard Masters said all 20 clubs wished to finish the 2019-20 season, but the league will still have to create a plan that works for players and managers.“There was a strong desire to discuss everything in the round and to agree a collective way forward,” Masters said. “A really strong collective will to complete the season remains. However, our priority will always be the safety of players, coaches and managers, staff, supporters, and the wider community. Nothing will be agreed until we have spoken to both the managers and players.“We welcome these first steps and are ready to play our part. We are working flat out with clubs and stakeholders – Government, our broadcast partners, The FA, the EFL, PFA and the LMA – to create a responsible, safe and deliverable model to complete the season.”Last week (6 May), the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL), the sport’s governing body in Germany, announced that the top-tier Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga second division will resume play on 16 May, making it the first major European league to restart. Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Email Address 12th May 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg, Episcopal News ServiceEditors’ note: A year ago today, Oct. 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy set to reeling a large part of the East Coast of the United States. At least 147 people died in the Atlantic basin because of the storm; of that number 72 were killed in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States. Sandy caused an estimated $65.7 billion in damage, including destroying or damaging 650,000 homes and damaging hundreds of thousands of businesses. Episcopal News Service invited seven people to reflect on their experience of Sandy, what lessons they and their faith communities learned and what challenges they still face. All seven reflections are available here.[Episcopal News Service] I’ll admit that Hurricane Sandy caught me off guard. In my role as director of the U.S. Disaster program at Episcopal Relief & Development, I try to be constantly vigilant; I normally begin each morning during storm season by opening the National Hurricane Center’s website and checking what’s going on, even before I dig into my email. But by late October of last year, I assumed the season was over. We’d had a perfectly-behaved streak of storms that all neatly hooked out to the north Atlantic, and I thought we were in the clear. I sat down at my desk that week and instead of checking the weather, immediately jumped to email and calendar and the busyness of the day. Then someone popped into my office to ask if I was tracking this storm headed to New York. Not yet…In fall 2011, in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene and the earthquake outside the District of Columbia, we’d realized that as a New York-based organization, we had some preparedness work to do. We’d talked as a staff about what we’d do if something happened here, who’d we communicate with if we were at home, where we’d meet up if we were in the office, what the back-up plan would be if communications systems were down. We did a “drill” that fall, and hoped for the best, planning to revisit the plan and the drills as an entire staff each September (as we recommend for parishes and dioceses).Katie Mears is director of the U.S. Disaster Preparedness and Response program at Episcopal Relief & Development.I expected New York’s infrastructure to hold, even when tested by the complexity of this storm. Like many others, I was wrong. I didn’t fully understand what a disaster would look like when it hit a large complicated urban area; let alone a vast, diverse region, stretching from the Chesapeake Bay to the Connecticut coast.My apartment on high ground in Brooklyn was spared by the storm. Our only perils were a few moments without internet and reduced hours at the grocery store downstairs. But then my phone started ringing, with reports from neighboring dioceses.At Episcopal Relief & Development, I work with dioceses to create programs to support their vulnerable neighbors after disasters. We provide them with advice from others who’ve run post-disaster ministries in the past and financial resources to scale up their food pantries, meal programs, and other responses. After Sandy, that meant working with diocesan disaster coordinators from the Diocese of Easton on Maryland’s Eastern Shore up to Connecticut, as well as some inland dioceses where we feared that the storm’s rain could trigger flooding.The needs in those first few weeks were vast. Power was out in buildings all over New York, leaving elderly and disabled people stranded—and cold—in their apartments. Electric pumps are needed to get water to apartments over 6 stories so many of these residents lacked plumbing as well. The subway system was shut down for days. I biked to work over the Manhattan Bridge with thousands of other Brooklynites, through 50 blocks of darkened lower Manhattan. As I rode through Chinatown, I saw elderly people lined up at open fire hydrants filling small beach buckets to carry home. I quickly heard from church staff in New Jersey and Easton and New York and Long Island and from the rest of the region. Each had stories of parishes doing amazing work to support their neighbors, often while dealing with significant property concerns at the same time.We support these ministries in the early, chaotic first few weeks after a disaster. But our work is even more important as the disaster drags on and loses its position in the national consciousness. It’s in this long-term recovery phase that folks are working to create sustainable futures for themselves with housing, employment, etc. It’s where the Church can play a critical role, both physically—rebuilding homes, offering case management, hosting volunteers—but also spiritually by providing a place where the community can mourn the losses and celebrate the successes. The Church plays a critical role in maintaining focus on improving the lives of the most vulnerable survivors, accompanying those most at risk of falling through the cracks through their recovery process. We’re partnering with the Dioceses of Easton, New Jersey, Newark, and New York to create programs to help their most vulnerable neighbors recover.Sandy reminded me, once again, the power of our church to respond. We often tell the story about our church as one of deficits—aging population, shrinking budgets, etc.—but we’re so gifted. We have churches in so many communities, they are in relationship with their vulnerable neighbors and they have the heart to do this work. A few simple systems can make those processes much smoother, and my team works to make that happen, but the orientation is already in place.For information about preparedness planning in your own diocese, check our list of Diocesan Disaster Coordinators. If your diocese isn’t on the list, talk to your bishop— Katie Mears is director of the U.S. Disaster Preparedness and Response program at Episcopal Relief & Development.

It’s always green.”“Our God wants us to be like this tree,” she added. “He wants us to always be growing … May this be an illustration for our lives that we may be like this tree in our spiritual lives—that the life may never leave us, the life that our Creator who died on the Cross for us gives us.”It was a fitting end to a momentous day, when Sacred Circle delegates planted the seeds for a historic move towards self-determination by endorsing a draft plan to establish a fifth province and structure for the Indigenous Anglican Church as part of the Anglican Church of Canada.The mood of the hall was electric that afternoon as Sol Sanderson, a member of the Primate’s Commission on Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice, presented a draft statement outlining the proposed structure for a fifth ecclesiastical province.In this draft proposal, the province’s offices would include a National Anglican Indigenous Primate—retaining the office of National Indigenous Anglican Bishop—as well as regional bishops, area mission bishops and ministry at the community level.The National Indigenous Anglican Church would have both shared and separate areas of jurisdiction with the existing structure of the Anglican Church of Canada, Canon XXII being amended to accommodate the transition.Excitement surrounding the draft statement was palpable. One Sacred Circle delegate noted his trepidation at the prospect, due to the fact that it was a challenge that took delegates out of their comfort zone.But, he added, “It’s only when we step out of our comfort zone that we grow,” and expressed his strong willingness to support the document. Others also spoke in favour, and a consensus among delegates resulted in the draft statement being forwarded to the new membership of the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples.Read more here in Anglican Journal.

As an intense collaboration between architect, client, and landscape architect, a great amount of thought was incorporated into every detail throughout the entire design and construction process. This fluid process was necessary in order to successfully deliver a functional house, equally capable of hosting informal family gatherings and large social functions. As an urban retreat for an artist and car enthusiast who reside next door, much care was taken to quietly insert this new house into the neighborhood, yet express the unique identities of the owners. As such, the client’s affinity for the color blue was incorporated into several of the dominating elements within the garden and the house. Save this picture!© James F.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemThe House in the Garden is a free-standing addition to an elegant modernist house on an adjoining lot. Several existing Red Oak and Elm trees were incorporated into the garden design, whereby both lots contributed to the formation of a larger garden en masse. A minimal plant palette creates mass plantings used for large textural impact and screening for privacy. Save this picture!© James F. WilsonA modern two story box, the house is clad on three sides with a rainscreen system, utilizing Ipe hardwood that will weather over time to a silver-grey sheen. The south façade is glazed in frameless, insulated glass units incorporating two 8 foot wide sliding glass doors. A 14 foot cantilevered roof protects this façade from the harsh Texas sun while serving as a porch to the glass-tiled infinity edge swimming pool. A small water feature cast into the concrete deck provides subtle noise to eliminate any distractions from beyond the garden walls. Large stone slabs become “connectors” throughout the garden, and provide transition from the street to the house. These organic, sinuous pathways culminate and encircle a fire pit. There is a guest bedroom and painting studio on the upper level. Downstairs, the concrete floor and exterior deck provide a seamless transition from the living room to the garden. The house provides ample space for part of a larger collection of art and automobiles. Save this picture!© Gisela BorghiAt 5250 sq. ft., the House in the Garden is barely discernable from the street as it is discreetly set back to the rear of the lot behind a stainless steel mesh and recycled glass privacy wall.

It runs at a steep gradient into a small valley enclosed by a wooded slope in the distance. The view is spectacular, showcasing a rural landscape. The visual and ecological quality of the site must be preserved and developed as far as possible.Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJSThe intentionThe aim is to build a house that is environmentally friendly in the broad sense of the term. The architectural intention, in particular, is to integrate the house in the best way pos- sible, not only into the landscape – with minimum visual impact – but also into the rural and local environment.Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJSSave this picture!Plans 01Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJSThe positionThe single-storey house is built at the back of the lot. From its position on the slope, it blends in with the landscape. Indeed, the top of the property is almost three metres be- low the communal path meaning that the view for walk- ers and existing or future neighbours is not obstructed by the house.Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJSThe garden is in the style of a farm with an orchard and a vegetable garden, positioned on the edge of a eld at the end of an access road. It is circular, making it highly space ef cient. The access road joins the curve of the pergola which encircles the garden and is lined with a row of native trees, providing a visual link between the house and the public domain. The entrance to the ac- cess road, marked by three walnut trees, is set back in order to be close to the centre of the hamlet.Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJSThe houseThe house extends around the circle of the garden. The curve provides residents with panoramic views to the north, over the valley. To the south, the house closes into a more private terrace that is protected from the wind and extended by the gar- den.Save this picture!© Steven MASSARTThe house is formed by the main building which is extend- ed by two roofs, which act on one side as a carport and on the other side as a covered terrace.The main building is formed from two parallel arches. To the south, a glazed gallery is protected by eaves. Unheat- ed, it serves as both the hallway to the different rooms in the house and as thermal buffering for the north part of the house. The north part is formed from a building with substantial thermal insulation, containing the living rooms with exceptional views to the north.Save this picture!Section 01The rooms are laid out from west to east – from public to private. The entrance, the of ce, the “Bierkeller”, the living room, the dining room and the kitchen open onto the largest area of the gallery. An airlock separates the “public” area from the more private area containing the bedrooms and a “thermal” area (hammam and shower) located at the east end of the house. The house is com- pleted by an outdoor spa bath with views over the land- scape.The eye glides over the rounded roof, thus preventing a clash with the landscape.Save this picture!© Steven MASSARTEnergy and sustainable developmentThe aim for the house is an energy performance in line with the passive standard: high-performance insulation, air tightness, controlled mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, rainwater recovery and the use of renewable energy sources.The structure, the facades and the external joinery are formed from wood, the curved roof is coated with a grey membrane.Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJSProject gallerySee allShow lessIKEA Launches Home Solar Battery to Take on TeslaArchitecture NewsPompidou Center to Open Gallery in Shanghai, Designed by David Chipperfield ArchitectsArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/875070/manneriehof-philippe-samyn-and-partners Clipboard “COPY” Manufacturers: Metsa Woods, Viessmann, Bieber Projects CopyHouses•Liège, Belgium Belgium Save this picture!© Laurent BRANDAJS+ 51 Share CopyAbout this officePhilippe Samyn and PartnersOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLiègeBelgiumPublished on August 04, 2017Cite: “MANNERIEHOF / Philippe Samyn and Partners” 04 Aug 2017.
