In pictures: Here’s what Battersea’s stunning roof garden will look like

first_img whatsapp Battersea Power Station yester­day unveiled the look of its Foster and Partners designed roof gar­dens, ahead of the third phase of the closely watched project.The developers of the scheme said the Battersea Roof Gardens and Prospect Park would house one of the biggest roof gar­dens in London. “We have worked on many gardens, but never before on this scale,” Foster and Partner senior executive partner Grant Brooker said.“There is simply no roof garden like this in any private development in the world, so it really does offer a unique residential opportunity.”The development is set to launch its third phase next Friday, having won planning consent from Wandsworth council last week. Phase 3 of the plan will involve 1,305 Gehry Partners and Foster and Partners designed homes. James Corner Field Operations will design the garden on the roof.

Guy Spier wins bid for date with Warren Buffett Share whatsapp What’s it like to go for lunch with Warren Buffett? Aquamarine Capital fund manager Guy Spier knows, and it cost him only $216,000. Spier and friend Mohnish Pabrai were successful in Buffett’s annual lunch bid in 2007, with all proceeds going to charity. Was it worth it? “Absolutely. It’s hard to calculate the ROI but over time it’s been worth it, partly because of the people I’ve met,” he told The Capitalist. “I was very nervous to meet him. I wanted him to like me but I was afraid he’d look at me and see Gordon Gekko but he was incredibly en­thus­iastic, a bit like a grandad.” Spier is on the publicity trail for his book, The Education of a Value Investor. Having worked at “gruesome” DH Blair & Co on Wall St and now based in Zurich, he’s seen it all and wants to be a responsible banker. But how does he feel about old classmate David Cameron? “I did economics tutorials with him at Brasenose. It’s hard to say – ‘there’s my classmate, I did better than him [Cameron got a first, but Spier got a first and a prize] and he’s PM, what am I doing?’ But I’m living a good life.” Dropping $200k on lunch with Buffett? We’d be inclined to agree. Tags: People Warren Buffett Gabriella Griffith Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 29 October 2014 8:30 pm whatsapplast_img read more

Intercontinental Exchange exits stake in Euronext with share sale

first_img Jenny Forsyth Show Comments ▼ Monday 8 December 2014 8:56 pm INTERCONTINENTAL Exchange (ICE) yesterday announced it was selling its final stake in Euronext, pricing the placement of 4.2m shares.The shares, representing approximately six per cent of Euronext’s share capital, are to be sold by way of an accelerated book-building to institutional investors, at a price of €23 each.ICE said it expected the gross proceeds from the sale to amount to €96.8m. The sale is expected to close on Thursday.ICE stated that, following the sale, it “will no longer hold any of Euronext’s shares or voting rights. This transaction marks the final exit from Euronext by ICE initiated in 2014.” Both the NYSE and Euronext, the operator of stock markets in Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, came under ICE’s control after it paid $8.2bn for NYSE Euronext in late 2012.ICE chief executive Jeffrey Sprecher has always maintained he would like to keep hold of the New York Stock Exchange as well as the London-based Liffe derivatives business and its IT platform.But he said: “Euronext, as a leader in Europe, should operate independently and in the interests of its customers and local economies.”ABN AMRO, JP Morgan and Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking acted as joint bookrunners on the deal.

The fictional town of Trumpton enjoys Ukip’s website failure

first_img Show Comments ▼ The lolz were mighty yesterday when it was revealed that Ukip’s website was down. At first, political satire site Guido Fawkes suggested Ukip hadn’t paid its bill – as Kippers were faced with a holding page from domain site 123-Reg when trying to access their party’s web page. Who was in charge of paying that?!Naturally, Ukip soon refuted this – pointing to a problem with their DNS records. Further lolz emerged when it was deemed to be an error on the part of German company Host Europe. Oh, the irony.  To get further insight into the technical issues facing Ukip, The Capitalist went to the only place one could expect to find hard hitting political commentary – the fiction town of Trumpton and its legion of political Twitter accounts.  “We have decided not to renew our hosting because the interweb is a modern day fad and we don’t like it,” tweeted @Trumpton_Ukip. Indeed. “After an investigation into our website troubles today, it turns out the WWW has open borders and free movement of ideas – we don’t like it,” it continued.  https://twitter.com/Trumpton_UKIP/status/552420741267087363 Trumpton’s Labour candidate soon waded in, having found a place to buy Ukip.org, the party’s domain, for £168.62. “Whoever nabs this first wins the internet.”  Later on, an indie record label Alcopop Records claimed to have purchased the domain, but it was all too good to be true. “So it looks like Go Daddy has sold us the website, but given it back to Ukip… We’ll be back Farage! Sorry guys,” it tweeted later.  Quite the saga…  Express KCS Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

#JeSuisCharlie has become one of Twitter’s all-time top hashtags

first_img Show Comments ▼ #JeSuisCharlie has become one of Twitter’s all-time top hashtags Catherine Neilan Tags: Twitter #JeSuisCharlie – the phrase used to show solidarity with the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack – has become one of the most popular hashtags in Twitter’s history.The attack, which took place on Wednesday morning, gave rise to the hashtag spontaneously as people used social media to express their support for those who had been killed and for the Charlie Hebdo team’s no-holds-barred stance towards free speech. Nine staff, one guest and two police officers were killed on Wednesday. A second shooting yesterday morning claimed the life of a female police officer. It developed into a hostage situation, which came to a conclusion this afternoon with the death of three of the suspects and four hostages.Je Suis Charlie became a near-universal phrase, used in vigils around the world. But on social media, it was even more dominant.Twitter said the hashtag had been used more than 3.4m times, peaking on Thursday evening when there were nearly 6,500 tweets per minute, according to CNN.However, it’s not enough to push #JeSuisCharlie to the number one spot, Twitter added.Other hashtags have also emerged, including #JeSuisAhmed – the name of one of the police officers who was killed, highlighting a view that while many people did not like Charlie Hebdo’s provocative cartoons they respected the magazine’s right to publish them.Alongside that #JeNeSuisPasCharlie also trended, with some people saying they were not brave enough to take the risk the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists had done.

No time for ties as finance chief tours London

first_imgGREEK finance minister Yanis Varoufakis looked liked a rock star as he trundled into Downing Street to meet George Osborne. Most male politicians that tread a similar path to the home of British political power wear the uniform of suit and tie. But Yanis came instead tieless and wearing a wax jacket. “We are both allergic to ties,” said longtime friend Steve Keen – an economics professor at London’s Kingston University. Yanis’s day in London took in Channel Four news as well as the BBC before the man who calls himself a heterodox economist travelled to the City to meet 100 or so bankers and economists. These included Michael Hintze, chief executive of hedge fund CQS and also a Tory party donor. Asked afterwards if the minister had proposed a debt swap, he said “it’s more balanced and broader than that,” without elaborating. Another attendee was former Barclays Capital chief economist Julian Callow, now at Catalyst Economics. Afterwards, Varoufakis’ tieless attire reportedly prevented his entry to a private members club. Today his exhausting tour takes in Rome, where he is set to continue his charm offensive on Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

Gatwick and Heathrow told to compensate residents or risk thwarting expansion plans

first_img Tags: London airport expansion Share Show Comments ▼ Heathrow and Gatwick airports have been warned by the UK’s airports regulator that they must do more to compensate nearby communities if they wish to go through with their runway expansion plans.The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) claimed that the two airports risked alienating local communities and losing political support if they did not improve the current situation, and thereby hampering any attempt to get expansion approved.  Less money is currently spent on  noise mitigation and compensation for local communities than at other major airports in Europe and the US, the CAA noted. “Communities cannot be expected to put up with airport expansion without much better engagement and compensation and more of a say in a development that will have a major impact on their local area,” Andrew Haines, the regulator’s chief executive said. He added: It cannot be right that we expect to be able to build more runway capacity without the industry making big improvements to how it minimises its impact on its neighbours.  The solution is partly operational – such as using the quietest aircraft available in the most efficient way – but industry improving the way it works with local communities is also crucial. The Airports Commission has been appointed by the government to choose the best locations for new runways, including a proposal by private company Heathrow Hub to divide one of the airport’s existing runways into two.

The odds of a Greek default have also fallen, from 7/2 to 5/2. And the odds of Greece holding another general election by the end of this year – presumably, because despite his ministrations, newly-elected Alexis Tsipras has failed to keep his pre-election promises, are also now 5/2. If you’re the gambling type, it’s looking like an increasingly safe bet. Although it’s also something senior European ministers will be looking to avoid when they meet this week.

General Election 2015: Tony Blair adds to Labour warchest to help Miliband fight the Unions

first_imgSunday 15 March 2015 5:08 am Show Comments ▼ Tags: General Election 2015 Share whatsapp General Election 2015: Tony Blair adds to Labour warchest to help Miliband fight the Unions Billy Ehrenberg whatsapp Tony Blair has flung himself back into the political fray, after it was revealed he organised a deal to secure Labour up to £1m of funding if it gets on the wrong side of its Unite donors.Blair set up a dinner at his home last week, at which Hull football club’s chairman, Assem Allam, agreed to donate an extra £300,000 to Labour, a sum that would take his total donations to the party’s electioneering to £500,000. If Labour loses the backing of union Unite, Allam said, he would donate a further £500,000. Blair ha come under fire for his brokering, with MPs loyal to Unite claiming his behaviour was “underhand” and would cost the party seats.Labour’s relationship with both UK business and Unite is seemingly on a knife edge. Before the dinner Allam said that Labour’s attitude to successful businessmen is “they should go away and die”.According to the Times, after the meeting Allam said:I want to see a strong Labour party less reliant on trade union money, so I have said if you have any problem with the Unite money I will make my donation £1m.As I have always said to our friends in the Labour party, Tony Blair and Ed Miliband, I would increase my political donations to gradually reduce the Labour party’s financial reliance on the trade unions.I hope I can inspire other like-minded business people to do the same so that the Labour party can stand on their own without having to satisfy one paymaster. Meanwhile Unite chairman Len McCluskey wants Labour to name Karie Murphy, a Unite activist who was implicated, but cleared of wrongdoing, in the Falkirk vote-rigging scandal, on the shortlist of candidates for the Halifax constituency. Miliband is less than keen on the idea, and some fear that Unite could pull its £1.5m in funding in protest, a possibility the union strongly denies.Labour MPs who are members of Unite see Blair’s involvement as an underhand attempt to undermine the influence of Unite.   More From Our Partners Native 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.orgWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comlast_img read more
