Dudley: Fed has no “magic wand”

first_img The US Federal Reserve cannot “wave a magic wand” to fix the economy overnight, but it can provide “essential” support, a top Fed policymaker.Indeed, support will likely be warranted unless economic conditions improve, William Dudley, president of the New York Fed and a permanent voter on the Fed’s policy-setting panel, said in a speech at Cornell University.His comments underline market expectations that the Fed will buy more long-term assets at its next policy-setting meeting on 2-3 November to try to revive the economic recovery.The US central bank cut interest rates to near zero and bought $1.7 trillion in mortgage-related and Treasury debt to try to boost the economy during the global financial crisis.However, a Fed colleague known for steady opposition to easy monetary polices said further easing would be a “dangerous gamble” that could set in motion another wrenching boom and bust cycle.“There are real risks to quantitative easing,” Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank President Thomas Hoenig said in Lawrence, Kansas, referring to extensive asset purchases by the Fed to push borrowing costs lower even though short-term rates are near zero.Hoenig acknowledged he held a minority view on the Fed. He has used his voting status this year to dissent six times against Fed policies aimed at supporting the recovery.Dudley, who has been among Fed officials making the case for monetary easing, said the road to full recovery is likely to be “long and bumpy.” Momentum is slowing, he said.“The Fed cannot wave a magic wand and make the problems remaining from the preceding period of excess vanish immediately,” Dudley said. “But we can provide essential support for the needed adjustments.”Dudley repeated his view that high unemployment and low inflation were inconsistent with the Fed’s mandate to maintain price stability and maximum employment.“I said that I thought further Fed action was likely warranted unless the economic outlook were to evolve in a way that made me more confident we would see better outcomes for both employment and inflation before too long.”Hoenig, for his part, restated his belief that ultra low interest rates and a more than doubling of the Fed’s balance sheet from pre-crisis levels risks creating asset bubbles and sets the stage for Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoStuff AnsweredSeniors Save on New MattressesStuff AnsweredUndoReporter CenterTommy Lee Jones Is Now 75 Years Old, This Is Him NowReporter CenterUndoTip ParentsHe Watched Neighbor Expand to His Yard for Years, but He Finally Got His RevengeTip ParentsUndoZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldUndoUnPastedAvoid These Fashion Mistakes And You’ll Immediately Look YoungerUnPastedUndoComedyDeep Cave Discoveries That Left Scientists BaffledComedyUndo Dudley: Fed has no “magic wand” whatsapp John Dunne Share whatsapp Tuesday 26 October 2010 3:06 am Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

It was shamed into issuing a grovelling apology and says the “relatively small” amount of money has been returned.It insisted that it had not attempted to mislead the government – its biggest client – after saying it would not make savings by cutting costs with suppliers. Serco also faced fresh criticism over the weekend when it emerged some smaller suppliers have been liable for an extra £500 charge in order get contracts.Its stock has dropped eight per cent since the letter was leaked.In August Serco posted a 21 per cent increase in half-year pre-tax profit and said government spending cuts would boost sales in areas where outsourcers would be hired to achieve savings.Serco, which runs Boris Johnson’s new cycle hire scheme, reported in August pre-tax profits for the first half to 30 June was £101.4m, against £83.4m last year. last_img read more

That percentage is what was asked for this year, and had declined from 21 percent in 2010 and 20 percent in 2011.Lane called it a “major advance” that “the budget contains resources to encourage collaborative relationships across the varying levels of the church — congregations, dioceses and the Episcopal Church — to work together to do new work for impact at the local level.”“When I look at this budget that’s where a lot of money and effort has gone, is to develop these collaborative relationships across the various levels of our church,” he said. “We’re really encouraging the church center and the church staff to be in dialogue and relation with both dioceses and congregations in service to God’s mission.”The committee increased the money in the budget that goes to mission, according to Lane and PB&F chair Diane Pollard, deputy from New York, by taking at least some of the needed money from internal restructuring in terms of administration and governance and modest staff reductions.Those church-wide staff reductions are due to be accomplished in part by attrition and redeploying staff, according to Pollard.The committee added block grants in each of the Five Marks of Mission areas around which the proposed budget in organized, they said.“I think PB&F listened very hard to the testimony of the church and responded, putting money into requests for new programming of various kinds,” Lane said.Further details of the budget will not be available until the budget committee presents it to a joint session of the House of Deputies and House of Bishops at 2:15 p.m. July 10 in the House of Deputies.Both Pollard and Lane again expressed concerned about the reduced time that PB&F had to do its work during a convention that is two days shorter than the previous one.“We really felt as a committee that the shortened nature of this convention and that the two days we might have had after our hearing[s] to unpack [the testimony] and to receive further requests through the resolution process, we didn’t have and, consequently we’ve put this budget forward without receiving many resolutions,” Lane said. “We hope our listening to the church had been sufficient but we recognize that that this is an impediment or a problem in this year’s process.”Pollard said that the committee worked “in a collegial, thoughtful, prayerful way, but recognizing our responsibility as the side of the church that needed to be the fiduciaries and be responsible business people”She suggested that it might be helpful to the convention for PB&F to be able to have a hearing after the committee presented its budget and before it is debated in both houses.Still, Pollard said the committee was pleased with the fact that each of its committee sessions were attended by other convention participants and that there was only once instance when one of the committee’s subsections went into an executive session.Pollard and Lane suggested that the new iteration of PB&F, which must be appointed by Dec. 15, ought to be able to be involved in the building of the budget before the January before General Convention next convenes.The church’s Executive Council typically approves a budget the January before convention convenes and gives it to PB&F as required by church canon (in Canon I.4.6) and the General Convention’s Joint Rules (in II.10 10 (a)).“Calling Program, Budget and Finance into the process in the last six months is not acceptable,” Lane said. “We don’t have time to absorb what’s been done to consider all of the data and then to make thoughtful, prayerful adjustments to the budget in that timeframe. There has to be on-going consultation.”— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The site falls by two storeys from Hartley St to the lane at the rear; creating a unified living plane was one of the key design gestures in this project. Kitchen, living and dining engage with the courtyard-like garden with a studio sitting atop the garage at the rear boundary, creating an amphitheatre back to the main house.Upstairs the spaces are quiet and restful; bedrooms and a secluded, contemplative library divided by a glazed void with views to the sky.Save this picture!SectionThough the site has a double frontage, it was challenged for light and series of voids, courtyards and lightwells have been designed to liberate the plan. The tiled courtyard off the florist’s workshop and living space is cool and restful, whilst a tiny lightwell with cascading planting addressing the two-storey stair draws in snatches of bright northern light. At the rear the house is cleaved in two by an internal lightwell and glazed void which swallows light deep into the home and programmatically defines the open plan spaces of the ground floor.Save this picture!Courtesy of Carterwilliamson ArchitectsOne of the great successes of this home is that it accommodates a wide range of programs in a relatively small footprint; well suited to our client’s lifestyles. There is plenty of room to grow their family and to house their steady flow of overseas visitors as well as a home office and florists studio- both of which can be converted to additional bedrooms or living spaces as required.Save this picture!Courtesy of Carterwilliamson ArchitectsA generous timber island anchors the living spaces of the home; part workspace, part sculpture and impromptu dinner table, it is the locus for family life.At it’s Hartley St address the Green House takes it’s cues from nearby raking roof-forms, matching alignments and setbacks to compose a facade that is both contemporary and sympathetic to the streetscape. The single storey street frontage  belies the generous two-storey home concealed behind the modest ridgeline.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe studio/garage typology is common in the rear lane and is positioned to address both the lane and the home, whilst maintaining a green band of vegetation consistent with neighbouring properties. The studio form and boundary walls give the rear yard a secluded feel delightfully at odds with the home’s dense urban context.Our client’s busy lives meant that it was important the home was low maintenance. The house is clothed in robust face brick and glass mosaic tiles that are easily hosed down to wash away accumulations of salt and dirt and which provide colour and texture to the building and give it a playful, graphic patterning.Save this picture!Courtesy of Carterwilliamson ArchitectsThe clients are thrilled that the most common compliment they get from visitors is about the quality of light throughout the home. The old house had been dark and damp and it was key to the brief that the new home dispel these associations.Though the home has a strong sense of connection to the outdoors, the external spaces are compact and constrained. Landscaping was particularly important to our client who works as florist, it needed to be low maintenance but also provide colour and texture to the home.Save this picture!Courtesy of Carterwilliamson ArchitectsThe collaboration with Melissa Wilson Landscape Architects maximised the potential of the outdoor spaces and addressed a variety of tricky microclimates. It included the creation of bespoke timber garden boxes that hang in the shady, green courtyard, adding to the lush feel of the space.The clients invested in ideas like the green mosaic tiles, face bricks and timber windows which give the home so much of it’s colour and character. Though these items appear expensive at face value, long term they are financially and environmentally efficient choices, their cost and embodied energy being amortised over a long life-span and their inherent robustness reducing the need for intensive, ongoing maintenance.Save this picture!Courtesy of Carterwilliamson ArchitectsThis home was built with a “build-it-once and once only” approach, designed to amortise the embodied energy of its parts and materials over a long life-span. Although it is generously sized it is spatially efficient, incorporating a range of programs and allowing our clients to work from home, reducing the frequency of their commute.The home operates passively through much of the year with the courtyard plan and glazed lightwell providing myriad opportunities for cross-ventilation and abundant natural light.Save this picture!Courtesy of Carterwilliamson ArchitectsAt it’s Hartley St address the Green House takes it’s cues from nearby raking roof-forms, matching alignments and setbacks to compose a facade that is both contemporary and sympathetic to the streetscape.

Fair Oaks Dairy Successfully Using Waste to Power Fleet

first_imgHome Energy Fair Oaks Dairy Successfully Using Waste to Power Fleet Facebook Twitter Previous articleBull Turns Bear on USDA Quarterly StocksNext articleSeed Consultants 3/29/2013 Weekly Market Comment with Gary Wilhelmi Andy Eubank SHARE Fair Oaks Dairy Successfully Using Waste to Power Fleet By Andy Eubank – Mar 28, 2013 SHARE Facebook Twitter Officials from the Department of Energy say Fair Oaks Farms is a pacesetter for the dairy industry. The Indiana farm has used electricity generated by the manure gathered from its own barn floors to power milking equipment, barns, a cheese factory and more for years. Now – the farm is using manure to fuel its delivery trucks as well. According to the Department of Energy – it’s the largest natural gas fleet using agricultural waste to drive the nation’s roads. Fair Oaks has also opened two fueling stations to the public. Fair Oaks Chief Executive Gary Corbett says the farm is taking two-million gallons of diesel off the highway each year.Erin Fitzgerald – a Senior Vice President at the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy says farmers across the country are starting to look at the Fair Oaks model to see if it would work for them. Department of Energy Clean Cities program Director Dennis Smith says about eight-thousand large-scale dairy and swine farms across the country could potentially support similar biogas recovery projects. When coupled with landfills and wastewater treatment plants – Smith says there is potential to someday replace as much as 10-billion gallons of gasoline a year with renewable fuel.Bioenergy Consultant Michael Boccadoro says the market isn’t firm yet – but AMP Americas has partnered with Fair Oaks on the fuel project and plans to build 15 more natural gas stations this year. The company plans to partner with more dairies along the way – though each station will primarily be supplied by traditional pipeline gas.Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Independent radio station and newspaper on verge of being forced to close

first_img News RSF_en News Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent Radio station back on the air after three-month suspension Reporters Without Borders today urged the judicial authorities not to push Moafrika, an independent newspaper and radio station known for criticising the authorities, into closure because of non-payment of a fine 170,000 maloti (about 20,000 euros) which it was sentenced to pay in a libel suit in 2000.Describing the fine as “out of all proportion to the resources available to a news media in Lesotho,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard appealed to the judicial authorities in a letter to be flexible and either reduce the amount of the fine or allow it to be paid in installments.”If the judicial system is to be respected, it must not become a means for censoring news media by forcing them to stop operating,” Ménard said.Although Moafrika had begun to pay the fine in installments, three Lesotho high court sheriffs went to the offices of the radio on 16 June with an execution writ, threatening to seize all the movable equipment of the radio station and newspaper and the editor’s personal property, if the fine was not paid in full on the spot.The sheriffs returned yesterday, put seals on the radio station’s computers and broadcasting equipment, and warned station director Candi Ratabane Ramainoane that they would return today to collect everything.
