whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share More evidence has emerged that suggests London house price growth is set to slow sharply while the national market moderates.Of the UK’s 20 largest cities, 14 are now registering house price inflation below the national average for the UK, according to data released today by property market analysts Hometrack.Over the past 12 months, London has seen the biggest gain – 17.3 per cent. However, another set of data released today suggests the London market is slowing after a year of boom. In London the proportion of households reporting that the value of their property rose in November was 62.7 per cent, down from 73.3 per cent last month, according to estate agents Knight Frank and financial information firm Markit. “The latest figures indicate the sharpest month-on-month slowdown for just over three years, led by a decisive shift in momentum across London,” said Tim Moore, senior economist at Markit.A house price sentiment index produced by Markit continued to imply growth was slowing. The index decreased to 58.4 in November from 60.7 in October. Any figure above 50 signifies growth, while 50 equals no growth.Figures from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors have shown a sharp drop in buyer enquiries since earlier this year, and the steepness of the drop has been even more pronounced in London.“Despite the economic uncertainty, the slowdown in the UK housing market will be welcome news for policy makers who want to avoid a debt- fuelled acceleration in house prices supported by record low mortgage rates. We expect the rate of house price growth to slow further in the run up to the year end,” said Richard Donnell, research director at Hometrack.

Home Sport GAA Laois hold off Carlow challenge to book Leinster final place SportGAAGaelic FootballLaois Senior Football Team By Steven Miller – 10th June 2018 Rugby Pinterest WhatsApp Community Community Laois 0-12 Carlow 0-8Leinster SFC Semi-finalBrought to you in association with 12 Acres BrewingThe Laois footballers are into the Leinster final for the first time since 2007 following a nerve-wrecking win over Carlow in Croke Park this afternoon.In a tight, tense, low scoring game, Laois got the better of their neighbours for the third time this year. The unbeaten run under manager John Sugrue has now extended to 10 games. A final in two weeks time against Dublin (more than likely) awaits.Reminiscent of Donegal against Dublin in 2011, Carlow packed their defence from the start, 14 men in their own ’45 with only Paul Broderick left up front.For the opening five minutes Laois owned the ball, patiently playing it over and back across the field. Although they coughed it up eventually it turned over again and Niall Donoher was fouled in front of goals for Munnelly to tap over a handy free.A brilliant Donie Kingston point put Laois two up after a good Trevor Collins run but Carlow got off the mark from the next kickout when Diarmuid Walsh launched one off the outside of boot into the Davin Stand end.While Laois had plenty of possession, chances were few and far between – but a missed Ross Munnelly free, after referee Fergal Kelly deferred to Hawk Eye, and a Paul Kingston snapshot were all Laois could get.An inspirational Colm Begley score after a fine run and linkup with Kieran Lillis put Laois two clear in the 23rd minute but Carlow responded froma Paul Broderick free after a foul by Mark Timmons on Jordan Morrissey.But Laois got the next two – from Alan Farrell after good work Paul Kingston and Munnelly combined and then from Emo’s Finbarr Crowley after a pass from Niall Donoher.While Laois could point to their handful of missed chances, Carlow did have the best goal chance of the half but Diarmuid Walshe’s effort was blocked by a combination of Damien O’Connor, Timmons and Graham Brody.A second free from Ross Munnelly put Laois four up by the half-hour mark but Daragh O’Brien hit back for Carlow. At half time Laois led 0-6 to 0-3.Laois kicked a couple of wild wides early in the second half and slowly Carlow got a grip on the game. The lively Jordan Morrissey and Darragh O’Brien continued to cause Laois problems and two Paul Broderick frees – either side of an inexplicable miss – had the gap back to one by the 49th minute.A nice score from sub Brian Glynn – after being set up by another sub Benny Carroll – nudged Laois two ahead again but Broderick hit back from play to leave one in it once more.With Carlow growing in confidence and Laois getting ever more nervous the Laois wide tally was mounting but two quickfire points from Niall Donoher and a Donie Kingston free had Laois 0-9 to 0-6 in the 60th minute. Would it be enough?Broderick and Kingston traded frees and then Laois were let off the hook when a last ditch Mark Timmons tackle denied Ciaran Moran.But Laois weathered the storm and a late John O’Loughlin got them out of danger and Evan O’Carroll wrapped it up in injury time.A Leinster final against the Dubs is next!SCORERS – Laois: Donie Kingston 0-3 (two frees), Ross Munnelly 0-2 (both frees), John O’Loughlin, Niall Donoher, Finbarr Crowley, Alan Farrell, Evan O’Carroll, Brian Glynn and Colm Begley 0-1 each Carlow: Paul Broderick (four frees) 0-5, Darragh O’Brien, Darragh Foley (free), Diarmuid Walshe, 0-1 eachLAOIS: Graham Brody; Stephen Attride, Mark Timmons, Gareth Dillon; Trevor Collins, Colm Begley, Finbarr Crowley; John O’Loughlin, Kieran Lillis; Alan Farrell, Niall Donoher, Damien O’Connor; Ross Munnelly, Donie Kingston, Paul Kingston.

Advertisements RelatedBustamante High Honours 22 Persons for Long Service FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Bustamante High School, Lionel Town, Clarendon has honoured 22 persons for long service to the institution.They were honoured on Wednesday (December 16) at a ceremony at the Juici Patties Banquet Hall, Clarendon Park, Clarendon, as part of the school’s 40th Anniversary celebrations.The honourees served the school for between 15 and 37 years, in various areas including academics, administration and ancillary.Minister of Health Hon. Rudyard Spencer, noted that the institution carries the name of one of Jamaica’s greatest sons The Right Excellent Sir Alexander Bustamante, who fought for the upliftment of its people and the betterment of the working class.He suggested that, as the school reflects on the work of Sir Alexander, recognition must also be given to those who have served the institution over the years.“Sir Alexander Bustamante was a courageous advocate for the poor and the powerless, an unrelenting voice of the downtrodden and, as we seek to reflect on this great man, it must be done against the background of what is happening in our society today and this is where we must recognise the service given by these stalwarts,” he said.He urged Bustamante High to create for itself an iconic presence on the education landscape. He also implored the school community to go back to the drawing board and seek to chart a “bigger, brighter” future for the school.He said that the school must also stand as a beacon of hope for Lionel Town and the parish of Clarendon, and that the rest of the country must see it as an example of discipline and scholarship.Gladys McDonald, replying on behalf of the honourees, said that they have reflected on the many significant achievements of the school and, as stakeholders, have pushed themselves to accept only the best in spite of the challenges they faced.“We reflected on events such as improved passes in CXC examinations, achievements in sports and national competitions and also successes in cultural and social programmes and fundraising exercises,” she said.She added that the years of service with the school have changed their lives significantly.

New study could offer helping hand for picky parrots New research has shown just how picky the iconic superb parrot is about the types of tree hollows they nest in, with the discovery potentially key to protecting the threatened species.One of the lead authors of the study, Dr Dejan Stojanovic from The Australian National University (ANU), says while the superb parrot is a much-loved Australian bird, until now, little was known about what kind of habitat it needs.“Understanding the type of hollows animals need, and how abundant they are, is a critical step for conservation,” Dr Stojanovic said.“Superb parrots like hollows in large tree limbs that have deep chambers, wide entrances and enough space on the floor for a big family.“This particular combination of traits is especially rare, and only 0.5 per cent of tree hollows in a woodland actually fit these criteria.”The paper showed that very few mature trees have suitable hollows for the picky parrots. The researchers say this reinforces the need to protect their nests.“Baby parrots must be delicious, so they like to nest in hollows where the chicks are harder to reach by predators. This is why good hollows are critical for threatened species recovery,” Dr Stojanovic said.Superb parrots are listed as vulnerable, and potential shortages of suitable tree hollows may limit their populations in landscapes where large trees are rare.This study is part of a partnership between ANU and the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate.Dr Laura Rayner, Senior Ecologist from the ACT Parks and Conservation Service, and a lead author on the study said: “These results will help us identify and protect these very rare and valuable nesting trees.“Land managers, like ACT Parks and Conservation Service, use practical information based in strong science like this report to help us protect superb parrot habitat.“This research will be used alongside the Government’s ACT Native Woodland Conservation Strategy, which guides the protection, restoration and management of our precious woodlands-and the plants and animals that live in them-for the next 10 years.”The research is published in the journal Forest Ecology and Management. /Public Release.

Resources Sector Rocks On With More Growth VIC PremierVictoria’s resources sector has continued its strong growth with high demand to meet the Andrews Labor Government’s big infrastructure agenda delivering record production and more jobs across the state.Minister for Resources Jaclyn Symes updated Parliament today on the sector’s continued strong performance in minerals exploration expenditure and quarry production.The Earth Resources Regulation 2019-20 Annual Statistical Report reveals that quarry production has now grown by twenty-five per cent over the last six years – providing over sixty-three million tonnes of sand, rock and gravel last financial year to help deliver new housing and infrastructure development.Minerals exploration spending in Victoria has grown – according to Australian Bureau of Statistics data expenditure increased by a third in 2019-20 compared to the previous year. Over the same period, gold mining expenditure also increased by a third and gold production by nearly forty per cent.World-leading geoscience has underpinned this minerals boom. The Geological Survey of Victoria estimates that around 75 million ounces of gold is yet to be found. The news of Victoria’s exploration and mining potential has sparked an increase in minerals licensing, total applications for 2019-20 up seventy-five per cent to 154.This track record of growth has raised Victoria’s profile globally as a hub for resources production. Melbourne will again be on show when it hosts the 2021 International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC), Australia’s largest annual mining and resources event.IMARC 2021 will take place from 25 to 27 October at the Melbourne Showgrounds, allowing organisers to include an outdoor exhibition space into its program for the first time.An extra $1.1 million was provided in the recent Victorian Budget 2020/21 to process the unprecedented number of applications and ensure the sector can ramp up its works to help the state’s economic recovery.Earth Resources Regulation has undertaken significant reform through the actions identified in Getting the Groundwork Right: Better regulation of mines and quarries report. Action has been taken to support the growth of the sector with safeguards in place to better protect public safety and the environment.As stated by Minister for Resources Jaclyn Symes“Minerals and quarry products play an essential role in our everyday lives – they make up the houses we live in, the train tracks we ride on, and the computers we work from. Our resources sector helps us all.”“The resources sector has kept going all throughout this pandemic – supporting jobs and our everyday needs. IMARC 2021 will be a fantastic chance for those businesses to reconnect and celebrate this continuing, strong success.” /Public Release.

Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains The White HouseBy the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Policy. The United States needs resilient, diverse, and secure supply chains to ensure our economic prosperity and national security. Pandemics and other biological threats, cyber-attacks, climate shocks and extreme weather events, terrorist attacks, geopolitical and economic competition, and other conditions can reduce critical manufacturing capacity and the availability and integrity of critical goods, products, and services. Resilient American supply chains will revitalize and rebuild domestic manufacturing capacity, maintain America’s competitive edge in research and development, and create well-paying jobs. They will also support small businesses, promote prosperity, advance the fight against climate change, and encourage economic growth in communities of color and economically distressed areas. More resilient supply chains are secure and diverse — facilitating greater domestic production, a range of supply, built-in redundancies, adequate stockpiles, safe and secure digital networks, and a world-class American manufacturing base and workforce. Moreover, close cooperation on resilient supply chains with allies and partners who share our values will foster collective economic and national security and strengthen the capacity to respond to international disasters and emergencies. Therefore, it is the policy of my Administration to strengthen the resilience of America’s supply chains. Sec. 2. Coordination. The Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA) and the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy (APEP) shall coordinate the executive branch actions necessary to implement this order through the interagency process identified in National Security Memorandum 2 of February 4, 2021 (Renewing the National Security Council System). In implementing this order, the heads of agencies should, as appropriate, consult outside stakeholders — such as those in industry, academia, non-governmental organizations, communities, labor unions, and State, local, and Tribal governments — in order to fulfill the policy identified in section 1 of this order. Sec. 3. 100-Day Supply Chain Review. (a) To advance the policy described in section 1 of this order, the APNSA and the APEP, in coordination with the heads of appropriate agencies, as defined in section 6(a) of this order, shall complete a review of supply chain risks, as outlined in subsection (b) of this section, within 100 days of the date of this order. (b) Within 100 days of the date of this order, the specified heads of agencies shall submit the following reports to the President, through the APNSA and the APEP: (i) The Secretary of Commerce, in consultation with the heads of appropriate agencies, shall submit a report identifying risks in the semiconductor manufacturing and advanced packaging supply chains and policy recommendations to address these risks. The report shall include the items described in section 4(c) of this order.

The report shall include the items described in section 4(c) of this order. (iv) The Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the heads of appropriate agencies, shall submit a report identifying risks in the supply chain for pharmaceuticals and active pharmaceutical ingredients and policy recommendations to address these risks. The report shall complement the ongoing work to secure the supply chains of critical items needed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including personal protective equipment, conducted pursuant to Executive Order 14001 of January 21, 2021 (A Sustainable Public Health Supply Chain). The report shall include the items described in section 4(c) of this order. (c) The APNSA and the APEP shall review the reports required under subsection (b) of this section and shall submit the reports to the President in an unclassified form, but may include a classified annex. (d) The APNSA and the APEP shall include a cover memorandum to the set of reports submitted pursuant to this section, summarizing the reports’ findings and making any additional overall recommendations for addressing the risks to America’s supply chains, including the supply chains for the products identified in subsection (b) of this section. Sec. 4. Sectoral Supply Chain Assessments. (a) Within 1 year of the date of this order, the specified heads of agencies shall submit the following reports to the President, through the APNSA and the APEP: (i) The Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the heads of appropriate agencies, shall submit a report on supply chains for the defense industrial base that updates the report provided pursuant to Executive Order 13806 of July 21, 2017 (Assessing and Strengthening the Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base and Supply Chain Resiliency of the United States), and builds on the Annual Industrial Capabilities Report mandated by the Congress pursuant to section 2504 of title 10, United States Code.

The operator also plans to use mobile stores at AT&T-sponsored events across the country.An AT&T representative told Mobile World Live (MWL) the launches are part of a broader plan to add 1,000 new points of distribution by the end of 2019, comprising traditional sites and the new formats.Ray Aguirre, AT&T’s assistant VP of retail sales and distribution, said in a statement the new approaches will allow the operator to be “nimble and quick to adapt in how we serve our customers”.The first pop-up store opened in Dallas and AT&T is evaluating “several” additional markets: its goal is to launch stores within 60 days of signing a site lease.AT&T’s move follows announcements by T-Mobile US and Sprint to expand retail coverage as they extend their networks, and could help bridge a gap to T-Mobile, which MoffettNathanson in April noted had surpassed AT&T as the operator with the second-largest retail footprint in the US.

We need to unlearn things. Unlearn the limiting beliefs of ourselves. Unlearn that we are not capable of doing things we think of. Unlearn every societal belief and pressure we are living under. Unlearn everything that no longer helps in our growth.But till this time, when we are busy trying to push ourselves to do things, with all are limited beliefs, unaware of the term “unlearn”, makes it more difficult to even reach 1% of your higher self. We know what to do, but we don’t know how to do it!Before going any further in detail, let me tell you if you’re reading this and after this, if you try to unlearn things, your brain will blame you for doing this because from decades you’ve been training your mind to just think the shorter image of yourself, But Believe it or not, this is another way in the list of ways to think of your higher self.You’re doing absolutely good for yourself, keep going. Because sometimes it all needs unlearning.Now here are the most common beliefs we all have to leave or unlearn:I am not enough, I can’t do things!At times, when we are on the edge of losing our hopes and believe in ourselves, we end up having this false belief, often seems true because we are not getting what we want. But we never see, that if we already dare to face it until now, then we also have the courage to give it one more try. You might fail again, but what, try again and again.But doing things with your mind saying to you, again and again, you can’t do it, then you can’t, you can never be. The mind is the best friend, what you’ll feed it will make sure you get that. So feed it with confidence, belief, and say again and again to yourself “I am enough, I am capable of doing anything I can think of”.We have to have a successful careerIt is true to some people but there’s a secret in it too. You’ll only be successful in your career if you’re winning on your life every day. Now, from every day it means you have to work on your every field, whether it’s your health, daily routine, mindset, happiness, etc. Success in a career you dream about is connected to every other thing in your life.But it does not mean at all if you don’t have a job you’re losing. Turning your thought from ‘not having it right at this moment to It will come to me on time’ is the way to lead you to your deserving path. Everybody is successful in some area of their lives and you’ll be too.Thinking of the circumstances based on your decisionsThis is what everybody just do naturally and easily, but we can’t control what will happen. But we can always control what better decisions we can make and just ready to face what next. And when we just sit and think of circumstances, which might not even exist in the future, it leads us to not even take action on our decision anyway and because of not achieving your short term goal we start to think it’s not the right decision. We have to unlearn “to not think how”.If you know what you want to do then Follow your ‘what’ and it will automatically lead to ‘how’. Do not limit yourself to what other people will think and are doing. It is called self-criticizing yourself for not doing the same. You’re unique and you’ve unique abilities. Do it now, what you’re planning for years.You’ve to be happy all the timeIt is good to be happy all the time only if you can do it all the time! But can you do it all the time? Robots nowadays can’t do this, they too have emotions. Then how can we limit ourselves to stay happy all the time? The best thing the humankind has ever received is the ’emotions’.Just Flow. Be you.We can show emotions and we are absolutely fine while showing our other emotions, can be sad, can be sensitive, just accept the moment, take your time to figure it out, and do the next thing.Follow every advice we are givenWe have been told that advice is good for our selves. The advice can be good at some moments of life, but it sure does not gonna work if our heart and mind are not ready to accept it and be happy with that. Sometimes we get just so influenced by other people’s success and money and health that their advice almost seems good to us to follow. But remember it’s your life, and your life is not similar to theirs, everybody’s life is different.Therefore, following the advice and learning from the person on the path as of you, can be helpful. And in the end, it’s always ‘your choice’ to follow it or not. Listen to what other people have to say, but do what your mind and heart and your intuition would say.Failure is not acceptableHow can you fail at something? How can you don’t know what to do? We usually ask ourselves these questions, before anybody asks us.These types of thinking and beliefs are the first thing to unlearn in the unlearning journey. The person who is curious enough to learn, unlearn and relearn the things they might know or not is the one who can win any path they’re on.We are failing at so many things in our daily lives, we don’t even bother to recognize, but suddenly when someone reaches higher we tend to feel like a failure and we are not ready to accept it. But doing is only going to block your ways to your higher selves. Failure is the only way to put you on your deserving path, accept the process of growth it puts in your way, and be a superhero to the next right thing.Hence, unlearn the mentality of seeing yourself as zero, rather see it as an opportunity. The more the doors will close, the more you will be clear about your path.Money is everythingMoney can help us in some ways, but God is there to help the poor too, so what are we afraid of? Money can get you things, if you’re earning whether enough or more, to believe money is everything is not true, unlearn this. We can think it like happiness is everything. But even if you’re not earning, believe that everything will come to you on time, just keep hustling and trust God’s plan.When we choose happiness over money, the money will find its way.I hope this will be helpful for you, share this with your favourite person, and earn the reward of helping them, what other beliefs you think of people should unlearn?
