Tags: NULL Westminster in profits warning Thursday 16 December 2010 8:02 pm whatsapp Share AIM-LISTED Westminster Group warned yesterday that its trading results for the second half of 2010 will be materially below market expectations due to delays in government contracts.The company, which supplies products to the security, defence, fire protection and safety markets worldwide, said its second half revenues were broadly similar to those of the first half. The second half is typically stronger than the first owing to the timing of major contracts. This is expected to result in an operating loss of around £2m to 31 December.

Rate of overseas takeovers of British firms peaks in 2010’s fourth quarter Share ONLY one third of all UK listed companies taken over during the fourth quarter of 2010 were bought by British firms, according to new data released by the City law firm Wedlake Bell LLP. Overseas bids for UK companies peaked in the final quarter of 2010, with 65 per cent of completed bids coming from foreign firms. This is the highest ever rate for overseas takeovers with 54 per cent of the total 113 bids in 2010 coming from overseas buyers, compared with just 40 per cent in 2009 and 44 per cent in 2008. The US remains the top overseas bidder for UK listed companies, responsible for 22 per cent of all takeovers registered in 2010. However the research by Wedlake Bell also reveals increasing activity in the UK from emerging economies, acquiring 17 UK listed companies- 15 per cent of all deals- during 2010 and up by 10 per cent in 2008.Canadian companies are also increasingly active in the UK, responsible for eight per cent all of listed company takeovers during 2010 and up by three per cent from the previous year. In direct contrast, Western European firms made only seven per cent of acquisitions in the UK market throughout 2010. Wedlake Bell’s latest data also reports an increasing interest from foreign buyers in UK- based technology companies.

Kindred Group has launched an appeal against a €470,000 fine for illegal activity in the Netherlands, yet added that it remains committed to securing a licence in the country once new igaming laws come into effect. Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Kindred Group has launched an appeal against a €470,000 fine for illegal activity in the Netherlands, yet added that it remains committed to securing a licence in the country once new igaming laws come into effect.Earlier today (19 August), the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) issued a €470,000 (£430,344/$521,950) fine to Kindred’s Trannel International subsidiary after an investigation by the regulator found its Unibet.eu site targeted Dutch players between August 11 and December 27, 2018.Kindred, however, claims that it is fully compliant with igaming rules set out by the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security earlier in the year. It aims to play a leading role in key regulatory goals, such as consumer protection, it added, and is committed to holding constructive dialogue with the KSA and other stakeholders as online regulations are developed.With secondary legislation currently being developed by the Ministry of Justice and Security, as well as KSA policy rules on licence applications and eligbility requirements, it has decided to appeal the fine.The secondary legislation will add more detail to the broader regulatory framework of the Remote Gambling Act, passed by the Dutch Senate in February this year. The Dutch government aims to have the secondary laws brought into force from 1 July, 2020, after which the KSA will be able to process licence applications ahead of the market opening from 1 January, 2021.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Facebook. Amazon. Apple. Netflix. Google. Collectively known as FAANG, these tech stocks are flying at the moment. And yes, they’re US stocks, but there’s a FTSE 100 fund I’ve got in mind for you today to get you a slice of the action.The drivers for massive revenues for Netflix and Amazon are fairly obvious with lockdown affecting a third of the world’s population. And Facebook is powering ahead, doubling its profits from a year ago.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…How to buy techBut if you want one of the FAANG stocks individually, you’ll have to fill out a W8-BEN form with your Stocks and Shares ISA provider. You’ll also be at the mercy of the US dollar, as these companies report all their earnings in the mighty greenback.And when the pound is weak against the dollar, you’ll pay proportionally more for these search engine, social media, streaming and mobile giants.Sharpen your FAANGA much easier way to profit from the world’s biggest tech stocks is to invest in a specialist FTSE 100 fund.Buying funds in a Stocks and Shares ISA instead of individual shares comes with one other obvious benefit. You’ll pay a management fee, around 0.5% of your holdings each year. But funds are usually free to buy and sell in a Stocks and Shares ISA. You’ll avoid expensive commission charges, and gains are tax-free, which means you get to keep more of them.Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE:SMT) is the only investment trust large enough to be listed on the FTSE 100. It is growing its dividends per share. And its major shareholdings are in tech stocks.The results have been pretty stellar for my portfolio: it’s up 172% in the last five years alone.Amazon is its second-largest holding at 8.2%. With a total fund size north of £11bn, that’s a pretty sizeable slice of the e-commerce giant. Also on the list is Netflix at 2.78% of the fund.At the time of writing, SMT is trading at a 4% premium to its Net Asset Value, around 730p. I’m looking to load up when the SMT share price has retreated a little, to ensure I’m getting value for money.Happily, there are other popular funds that own portions of booming tech stocks. I’ll tell you which I think are the best buys.Fund your futureOne exceedingly popular choice is Terry Smith’s flagship Fundsmith Equity fund. That’s probably because it’s returned 132% in the last five years. It’s even larger than SMT, with £18bn of holdings.Facebook sits high in its top 10 shareholdings, amid other mega-cap tech picks like Microsoft and Paypal.For a more pure FAANG experience you could consider Polar Capital Global Technology. Its annual return over the last four years has been large, ranging from 10% to 63%.And it has one of the best allocations to capture the giant growth of US and Chinese tech. Its top 10 holdings include Microsoft, Alibaba, Apple, AMD, Amazon, Tencent, Alphabet (Google’s owner), and the chipmakers Nvidia and Intel.Polar’s nine investment managers base their buying philosophy on earnings and cash flow growth, and there’s plenty to go around.If you want to grab a slice of profit from FAANG or other top tech stocks, this is the easy way to do it.

ArchDaily House with ZERO Stairs / Przemek Kaczkowski + Ola Targonska Houses Photographs: Sebastian OleksikText description provided by the architects. The clients, a middle-aged couple, approached us with one definite request – they wanted to build a house with no stairs, a house that would be equally practical and enjoyable when they get old. The site offered no obvious clues – a flat piece of land in a second line of buildings, in a suburban part of the city of Wrocław, among disappearing traces of a rural past, surrounded by a chaotic mix of houses of all styles, materials and conditions.The first decision consisted in placing the house along the northern border of the plot, towards the narrow access lane, so that the volume of the house shelters the remaining large garden from unwanted views and nuisances of the nearby road.

The long wing visible from the street accommodates the common, “public” spaces of the house. However, the almost entirely solid front façade, clad with wooden slats, forms the closed backside of the large living area. Only after entering the house through a wooden door adjacent to the volume that forms a double garage, one can grasp first views of the other face of the house – its long, glazed façade opening to the sunny terrace and the garden. The central entrance point allows for a convenient and discreet communication to both wings of the house. The “public” wing features a slanted ceiling, adding to the feeling of openness and spaciousness. Behind the side wall of the living room, connected by a two-sided fireplace, is a “home cinema”, a space for watching films and listening to music, with acoustically clad walls and an incorporated screen. Save this picture!PlanThe kitchen is at the heart of the plan and is also a transition space between the living room and the wing of the house where bedrooms are located. The three bedrooms also open to the terrace and the garden with full-height sliding windows, though sneaking into the rooms from outside requires jumping above a narrow strip of water – a gesture towards granting more privacy to these spaces. The row of bedrooms features a bathroom at each end, and the corridor along this wing is lit from above by square skylights. Save this picture!© Sebastian OleksikThe only part of the house without natural daylight, a strip between the garage and the private wing, houses a technical room and another toilet for guests. The terrace is clad with light-colored terrazzo in large format tiles. It is connected to the garden by a wide ramp with strips of grass and grey granite paving blocks. The fully glazed facades are protected from sunlight and glare by a thin canopy that creates a frame for all the views that the open interior of the house may offer from the garden side.

Traditional principles of urban planning are associated with the formation of public spaces and the surrounding volumes. This method is also coded in Paupys revitalization solutions, the streets and arcades stretching towards Vilnius merge into the central square. Next to the town square, a residential quarter consisting of six different volumes has been realized on a trapezoidal plot. The urban idea of the composition reflects the specifics of the context: The volumes of the buildings are shrinking and lowering, creating a gradual transition from the city square to the River.

Along the Vilnius embankment, three separate buildings of 2-3 floors have been designed, leaving open visual connections between them, connecting the spaces of the inner yard and the riverside embankments. The core of the composition of the inner yard is a children’s playground reminiscent of a stylized heart shape, around which pedestrian paths of irregular curvy shapes have been built, benches, lamps, rubbish bins, etc. have been installed. The ground floor apartments have outdoor terraces planted with hedges.Save this picture!© Norbert TukajSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Norbert TukajEntrances to the stairwells of the house are possible only from the inner yard space, the yard can be accessed from all sides through four lockable gates. The decoration of the vertical and horizontal surfaces of the quarter is dominated by dark-coloured ceramics, associatively reminiscent of the industrial buildings that once stood here. The composition of windows of different sizes is picturesque, different details of balcony decoration are used, visually covered places for installation of outdoor units of air conditioners are provided. The roof of the City House is covered with tiles, the roofs of other volumes are galvanized copper tin. The equipment of the engineering system is installed in special ventilated technical shelters.
