first_img Shares fall for HP after weak result Share Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ HELWETT-PACKARD failed to meet investors’ sales expectations, resulting in a fall in shares.The US technology giant said revenue for its first fiscal quarter of this year climbed 3.6 per cent to $32.3bn (£20bn), below forecasts of $33bn.Shares in the firm fell 12 per cent in after hours trading to $42.4 following the news.Sales in two of its core businesses – personal computers and technology services – contributed to the drop.The limp performance overshadowed higher than expected fiscal first-quarter profit, driven in part by cost discipline and lower component costs.The firm recorded a 16 per cent jump in profit to $2.61bn, or $1.17 per share. Revenue increased 3.6 per cent to $32.3bn.The results could worry investors in the world’s biggest PC maker, which had become a likely candidate for a turnaround story.Shares in the firm fell significantly following the departure of chief executive Mark Hurd last summer. However stocks had begun to rise again this year prior to yesterday’s announcement. New chief executive Leo Apotheker will attempt to address the California-based firm’s woes as he unveils his strategy for the firm next month. center_img Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndo More From Our Partners Inside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com Tuesday 22 February 2011 8:51 pm KCS-content whatsapplast_img read more

first_imgSunday Oct 21, 2012 Wallabies hold All Blacks to dramatic draw as record goes begging The All Blacks came within inches of equalling the top-tier world record of 17 consecutive Test wins as they drew 18-18 with a determined Wallaby side at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Dan Carter’s drop goal attempt deep in added time sailed wide. The current record is shared by the only two top-tier teams to have ever won 17 games in a row, the 1997-1998 Springboks and the 1965-1969 All Blacks. Lithuania hold the overall record (not tier-one or tier-two), but currently Cyprus need just three wins to match that feat.It was an incredible end to a game of rugby that was tryless, as both sides kicked six penalties each before the Wallabies threw everything into it with time up, but were penalised after 23 phases.The All Blacks could have kicked the ball out and taken the draw but skipper Richie McCaw called a scrum instead. What ensued was a frantic few minutes that ended with Carter’s missed drop kick.“We’re really, really disappointed, too many avoidable penalties, too many avoidable mistakes,” said Steve Hansen. “It was probably one of the ugliest games of rugby I’ve seen. But to play as poorly as we did and still manage to show the character and tenacity to get the draw was pleasing.”This was the third Bledisloe Cup game, which the All Blacks already claimed with their two previous encounters that formed part of the Rugby Championship. They’ve help the trophy since 2003.View the full match hereNote: The highlights have now been updated with a better versionADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The request was an atelier that can be used as a gallery at the same time functioning as a doll-making studio. Additionally, it should be a space where her friends, who are often invited, can be gathered around pleasantly. In the residential environment the atelier and the house are wished to be open, while reserving some privacy from the neighborhood.  When I first visited Minoh City in Osaka Prefecture, I remember the place was plenty of green. It is because the season was spring, but also the city was ordained by vegetation standard, which order more than 10% of the site to plant tall, middle and low trees in urban districts with lower than 60% of building coverage ratio.

Not something like walls, hanging walls or fences but waist-high walls that are freed from gravity or floating belts surround the entire site. This is a theory to create architecture that is interior-like extending from outdoor, opposed to substantial in/out territory. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaFloating BeltSpecifically, we expected that territory, which dose not regulate in/out terrain, be made by a spatial diversity that is derived from floating belt, which is accumulated double or triple in rectangle taking balance, and the belt itself. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaEmploying 1.2 m level the difference in the site, two functions are allocated to where floating belts overlap. Atelier is put on the lower part facing north-looking front street and the residential piece on the upper south side. An approach was built as a slope as if walking on the slanted topography. By putting a small box that stores necessary functions such as a closet in the atelier and the house, it becomes a space like a street-facing piazza that has no region. The two functions become one room space by triple pile of belts. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaA simple operation of overlapping belts that have directionality obscures site boundaries and formulates a relationship of the site and the neighborhood that contain new extent. That is to say, the entire site becomes a gallery without body-sensed territory and that is connected to creating variety of places that the client requires.

first_imghdorries/iStockBy MATT SEYLER and MATT ZARRELL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Three Idaho Army National Guard personnel were killed after their UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed south of Lucky Peak near Boise shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday, officials said in a news release.All three personnel aboard were pilots with the Idaho Army National Guard participating in a routine training flight.The aircraft was last in contact at 7:45 p.m., according to Col. Christopher Burt, the Idaho Army National Guard’s state aviation officer. The Emergency Transmitter Locator device aboard the aircraft was activated shortly after 8 p.m. and recovery procedures were initiated, which included air and ground search and rescue crews.The weather at the time of the crash was snowy and the area where the aircraft went down is mountainous, Lt. Col. Christopher Borders, spokesman for the Idaho National Guard, told ABC News.The aircraft and deceased personnel were located at 12:15 a.m. Wednesday morning, officials said.“There was snow,” Borders told ABC News. “It’s been poor conditions on and off throughout the period. It hampered our initial air search efforts when we were notified that the emergency locator had triggered. As as result we immediately launched a ground crew to search. At approximately 11 p.m. the weather improved enough to launch another aircraft to commence the air search. And after midnight tonight, approximately 12:15 a.m. our search and rescue crew located the aircraft and confirmed there were no survivors.”The cause of the accident is under investigation. The names of the three who died in the crash are being withheld until next of kind can be notified.“This is a tremendous loss to the Idaho National Guard and our community,” said Maj. Gen. Michael Garshak, adjutant general of Idaho and commander of the Idaho National Guard. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones as we work through this tragedy.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

first_imgAnother estate agent has spoken out to complain about his treatment by OnTheMarket.Simon Shinerock, who is chairman of 15-branch estate agency Choices, has claimed that he was banned from public meetings held by the portal after writing critical opinion pieces for a trade newspaper.Shinerock says during an interview with Christopher Watkin published over the weekend that he spoke to the portal’s CEO Ian Springett when he was preparing to launch OnTheMarket and immediately disagreed with his strategy of targeting Zoopla rather than Rightmove, and his insistence on a ‘one other portal’ rule.He also says he opposed banning online agents.“My FD and I had been invited to a public meeting held by OnTheMarket but we ended up being refused entry to it because of my criticism of OnTheMarket’s strategy,” says Shinerock.“I felt that targeting Zoopla would just make Rightmove stronger, which it has.”He also claims during the interview that the sale of some estate agencies has fallen through after a potential purchaser has seen the five-year contract the agency has signed with the portal.“Effectively, if you had 100 branches and you bought one small agent which had signed up for a five-year deal, you could end up having to pay full price for all of the 100 branches,” claims Shinerock.His experiences resonate with those of London estate agency James Pendleton who, The Negotiator reported last week, was ejected from its ‘freebie’ contract with OnTheMarket after saying it was reluctant to pay for its service at the moment.Watch the videoon the market October 28, 2019Nigel Lewis3 commentsCambell Evans, Evans Bros Evans Bros 29th October 2019 at 4:21 pmAm I missing something? When he says the “One Other Portal” (OOP) rule was “unfair” … unfair for who exactly? People have questioned and argued about the OOP rule for years and it’s been settled – in the courts. OTM were allowed to do it while they got established and that’s it. Now they are more established, the OOP rule has been dropped. It just wasn’t an issue. When exactly was Mr Shinerock “banned” from these meetings? I can’t help feeling there is more to this than the article lets on.I must have attended at least 8 OTM meetings from the off, and I don’t remember OTM “targeting Zoopla”. In fact, from memory Mr Springett’s graphic was predicting a 50 / 50 split between Rightmove and Zoopla. As it turned out, if more agents ditched Zoopla than Rightmove, then it just goes to show that the agents themselves thought that Zoopla was the least efficient of the 2 competitors. I can’t see how OTM made Rightmove “stronger”. If it genuinely had made Rightmove stronger, you could bet your shirt that the subscriptions would have increased proportionately – and they didn’t for me at least, but we are in a strong OTM area.Why was Mr Shinerock so keen on including “Online agents”? Part of the reason OTM was set up was to combat online only agents – which is why one of the OTM conditions was that members had to have a physical office. What was the issue with that? I must admit, I still don’t quite understand why OTM wanted to float; it was effectively a not for profit organisation. The people who set it up and paid for it (ie normal High Street agents like myself) weren’t EXPECTING OTM to “make a profit” – we expected it to compete with the big portals and to cover its costs. I can only speak for myself but unless I’m missing something, it did both of those.As for the sale of businesses “falling through” because of an OTM 5 year contract, how is that any different to any other contract? If you had signed a 5 year contract with say a local newspaper, and were trying to sell the business, then the newspaper commitment would be passed on to the new buyer. The buyer would know that before signing and could revise his offer accordingly if he / she wanted to. I suspect there were other reasons why prospective buyers pulled; without far more detail we will never know will we. Will we get more details? Probably not.Allowing homeowners to advertise their property on OTM? What is that about? Why would a site set up and owned by ESTATE AGENTS let private individuals advertise their property on our site? We want to encourage them to use estate agents not discourage them. I was a Gold OTM member from the off to protect my business – not undermine it.Log in to ReplyNigel Lewis, Online Editor, The Negotiator Online Editor, The Negotiator 29th October 2019 at 11:55 amHi Julian – yes, the very same Mr Shinewater! I realise Simon isn’t OTM’s greatest admirer but the point he makes about the tricky terms in some of its contracts is an interesting one and worth reporting on.Log in to ReplyJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 29th October 2019 at 11:10 amThe same Simon Shinerock, who writes on Estate Agent Today, who has moaned at OTM from day one about how it will never get off the ground?
