Google beats forecasts as profits surge

first_img Thursday 14 October 2010 9:42 pm Google comfortably beat analysts’ sales and earnings forecasts when its third quarter results were posted yesterday. The world’s biggest search engine reported 32 per cent year-on-year growth in net income to $2.17bn (£1.37bn) and earnings per share, excluding one-time expenses of $7.64, up from $5.89 in third quarter 2009. Net revenue for the three months to 30 September was $5.48bn, a 25 per cent jump from the third quarter of 2009. Analysts had forecast around $6.67 earnings per share and net revenues of $5.25bn. Chief executive Eric Schmidt said it was “an excellent quarter”.Google’s core business grew “very well” and its newer businesses, particularly display and mobile, “continued to show significant momentum”, he said.Google’s overall revenues rose 23 per cent to $7.29bn as traffic-acquisition costs, the click-through commission payments from its partners, hit $1.81bn. Both the frequency with which customers clicked on its search adverts and the average cost-per-click advertisers paid Google rose in the quarter. The growth in net income for the search engine is particularly impressive as operating expenses rose 34 per cent at the company during the quarter and it added 1,500 new staff, to reach 23,331 employees.

Before summer 2010, when PAPER | TOTEMENT was invited to design some new constructions, the house territory had been already changed a few times with new additions that were not within the scope of the initial project – a summer kitchen with a sunshade ground and a guest house appeared. It was clear to them that further development of the initial architectural style meant a complete loss of at least some consistency of constructions on the site or it could be overwhelmed by a lot of buildings. Besides, it would continue an architectural idea which was absolutely alien to them. Therefore, they decided that something absolutely different in contrast to all that was around not only on the given site, but also along the territory which one can see at a glance, would allow the house to receive a new status, a new quality and a new scale. More images and architects’ description after the break. We decided to inoculate, to implant “another’s flesh”, to create an outgrowth, resisting with all its force to the current architectural reality, absolutely dull in its individuality and at the same time creating an awful, motley and elaborate landscape of near Moscow with its fences and settlements making a sad and terrible impression with rare exception, despite plenty of money spent for this “Russian Shanghai”. Our applied task was quite simple. The family of our client increased, and there was a lack of certain facilities. We had to increase the main house area by attaching a recreation zone and a children’s zone to it. The additional space had to be found out from the outside without interfering into the house layout as it was not possible to change anything inside. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementLogically a recreation and reception zone was found on the existing terrace located above the swimming pool. A nursery playground was a more difficult task. As there were no free areas either inside the house or around it we decided to reconstruct the guest house located to the northwest from the main house and to built one more floor with a warm passage to the main house. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementWe reached the final architectural decision from different points of view, combining or rejecting positive and negative functional necessities and possibilities, technical problems of reconstruction, the budget and terms (1 year passed from the first sketch till the building was built, we were 1,5 months late, which appeared to be insignificant, taking into account all the difficulties of winter season conditions for building). And also it was an architecture as our point of view regarding the situation at the present moment. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementThe existing house received its status of being “present” with an “adult” recreation zone – a zone of the “present” turning into the past, and a children’s playground zone – a zone of the “present” turning into the future. The past is connected with the present by observing the world around, it is transparent, as it has already come true and tends to be absence, tends to «0» or to an end, dissolution, washing out or to the loss of a from. Therefore this part was thought to be a glass capacity merging with the current environment. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementThe section is divided into two glass parallelepipeds with inclined walls displaced over an axis of symmetry of the existing house. Remaining static enough, they suite to a nursery with their light shifts and inclinations of walls. In the left part there is a “lady’s” drawing room, in the right part – a “man’s” one. The woman’s part has an inclination to the man’s one, which hangs over the swimming pool more defiantly and reflects the children’s section. Both parts are connected and separated by a peak with an air intake at the top. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementThe children’s section is made blind with several cuts for windows and a lantern in the roof for a contact with the outer world. It “yet” has no certain form and is connected with the main house by a certain “umbilical cord” – a passage which has one point of support, it develops and looks into the “future”, letting in a warm southwestern sunshine through long horizontal cracks of windows and the lantern. The front material – painted aluminum – was chosen first of all due to functional reasons – snow bags, problems of water disposal and some other peculiarities of the Russian climate. But also it has a dynamic painting which “destroys” or “washes away” the plane when watching from a short distance. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementWe tried to get the most dynamically directed, but incomplete form, as though it was “made” by a child. Inside it there is a graphite white-grey-black box-roof space, which varies depending on the time of the day and sun position. Its inside planes and capacities are moving and have not found their final position yet. They are like clean sheets with moving shades of people, trees, lamps and themselves on them. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementThis is the game of “full” and “empty” – and it is the main architectural idea of the house. Open and closed, the past and the future, connections and ruptures were what we were interested in this project. Both houses are difficultly implanted in the existing complex (we are grateful to all the designers and partners we worked with), each step concealed in itself an uncertainty and need to make flexible decisions. Save this picture!Courtesy of paper | totementOur final stroke we made on the roof of the glass extension. It was a “tattoo” made as a black-and-white labyrinth which the owner of the house could see every day when walking out on the balcony of his bedroom. Once and for all it has changed the picture of the place at least for one person, it confirms that the inoculation has taken place and the only question is what it will change in future.Project gallerySee allShow lessResidential Project at Aarhus Harbour / ADEPT and LUPLAU & POULSENArticlesMaritime Museum and Science Center / COBE & TRANSFORMArticles Share ArchDaily Nikolo-Uryupino House / TOTEMENT/PAPER CopyAbout this officeTOTEMENT/PAPEROfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesRussiaPublished on November 12, 2011Cite: “Nikolo-Uryupino House / TOTEMENT/PAPER” 12 Nov 2011.

The delicate grape is used in many sparkling and non-sparkling wines we’ve grown to love.My pick (with Anthony’s help) for Easter is the San Simeon 2013 Chardonnay. This variety of wine boasts a selection of distinctive grapes from the fog-rich climate of Monterey and this wine is slowly brought to market in a unique barrel maturing process. This is a splendid wine for and Easter pairings — are you an impartial Chardonnay fan?The San Simeon selection has fruit, a perfume of oak and a well-balanced finish. I would say that this wine has GPTA (great potential to age). It’s a Chardonnay, so don’t let is sit too long.

Required fields are marked * Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Journalists with the Southern California News Group, which owns the Pasadena Star-News, announced Wednesday their plan to unionize at 11 daily newspapers and more than a dozen weekly publications.Nearly three-fourths of the newspapers’ non-management editorial employees — including reporters, photographers, designers, copy editors and online editors — have signed authorization cards that will be submitted to the National Labor Relations Board in a petition for a union election.The journalists’ union, the SCNG Guild, will be a unit of the Media Guild of the West, a local of The NewsGuild-CWA. MGW represents hundreds of journalists at the Los Angeles Times, the Arizona Republic and other news outlets.The journalists of the SCNG Guild are eager to better serve their communities across Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Most newsrooms have endured pay cuts, with some employees going a decade or more without raises. SCNG newsrooms are stretched thin through layoffs and attrition.“Our journalists have labored for years under increasingly difficult conditions. We intend to reverse that trend,” the guild said in its mission statement.“Readers need the services we provide more than ever,” the statement reads. “Our online traffic is surging, and our digital subscriptions are up. The public is clamoring for information that can help them and their families stay healthy and safe.”The news group includes the Orange County Register, Los Angeles Daily News, the Riverside Press-Enterprise, the Long Beach Press-Telegram, the Torrance Daily Breeze, the San Bernardino Sun, the Pasadena Star-News, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the Whittier Daily News and the Redlands Daily Facts.The papers attract an online audience of 17.6 million monthly unique visitors, according to the company, and some 451,000 Sunday print subscribers.The company is owned by Alden Global Capital’s MediaNews Group. The New York-based hedge fund is known for slashing newsroom budgets to the bone. Last week, Alden Global announced a $630 million deal to buy Tribune Publishing newspapers, even as it refuses to invest in its own newsrooms.“The Southern California News Group likes to say that ‘Local. News. Matters,’” said reporter Josh Cain, SCNG Guild organizing committee member. “But hollowing out our newsrooms with layoffs and attrition does not improve our ability to cover the news. Buying up every local paper in Southern California, cutting its staff to the bone and covering the same number of communities with even fewer resources does not help our readers. We want to save local news, and organizing will help us do that.”Ten of SCNG’s daily newspapers and some of its weekly editions are more than a century old. (the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the youngster of the group, was established in 1955.) By unionizing, journalists are looking to stave off further cuts, “while providing a framework for allowing our newspapers to thrive,” according to their mission statement.

County Supervisors Vote To Redevelop Underutilized Commercial Properties for Affordable Housing

first_img Community News Community News L.A. County Supervisor Kathryn Barger represents Pasadena on the County’s Board of Supervisors.The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted today to identify and repurpose underutilized commercial property as temporary and permanent affordable housing.Supervisor Kathryn Barger and the motion’s co-author, Hilda Solis, noted that many commercial spaces have been left vacant as companies transitioned to telework during the pandemic.“The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated problems for our most needy residents, but it has also presented us with creative new opportunities to serve them,” Barger said Monday. “One of the greatest challenges to providing shelter and housing for those experiencing homelessness is the time and funding it takes to build. By utilizing existing property, we can meet the urgent housing needs of those on the street quickly and effectively.”As businesses look to downsize their physical footprint to reduce overhead and offer more flexible work schedules, commercially zoned land can be converted to mixed-use or new housing, Barger said, citing a UC Berkeley report.“Allowing new homes and mixed-use projects to be built on these sites can serve as a catalyst for new economic growth while at the same time addressing California’s ongoing housing shortage,” the report reads in part.“This form of redevelopment also advances infill development goals, bringing residents closer to jobs, amenities and transit, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions from personal automobile use.”On a unanimous vote without discussion, the board directed the county’s CEO to work with regional planners and the county’s development authority to assemble a list of underutilized properties in the next 90 days.

Going up: Artist installs ‘Responding to Home’ exhibit at Johnson Center

first_img Published 3:00 am Tuesday, February 16, 2016 Not often is an artist caught with his “paintings” down, but Jerry Siegel found himself in just that situation Monday.Siegel delivered the artwork for his upcoming exhibition, “Responding to Home: In the Heart of Alabama,” to the Johnson Center for the Arts Monday morning. Although Siegel worked behind closed doors to unwrap the photographs that will be exhibited, people popped in for sneak previews of his work. Sponsored Content Email the author Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Latest Stories “Jerry Siegel captures the essence of times gone by and uncovers extraordinary moments in the ordinary,” said Vicki Pritchett, Johnson Center executive director. “He is an extraordinary photographer and his work stamps who he is as an artist and as a Southerner.”Siegel journeyed through the photographs for the upcoming exhibit as if he were guiding a tour of the streets, the old stomping grounds and back roads of home.Siegel is a native of Selma and he and his siblings continue to maintain the homeplace that was built by their parents in 1956. Siegel is a product of the place and he has a strong affection for the rural South – the places and the people – and, of course, the artists who make visual “recordings” for generations to come.

Visitors to the art center on Monday were treated to a sneak preview of his work.center_img The photograph could have been taken along hundreds of rural Alabama roads where blackbirds roost.Siegel admitted that he had not scoped the place nor did he sit for hours waiting for just the right moment. He didn’t change the settings on his camera time after time.“I was just driving down the road and saw the birds in the tree,” he said. “I stopped and they flew off. Then, they settled back in the tree so I blew the car horn and they flew off. They came back to the tree and I blew the horn again. And, I got the photograph.”When he’s riding the roads, Siegel said he usually presets his camera to be ready to seize the moment.Pritchett said Siegel has the rare ability see something unique in the ordinary and then the talent to capture it as art.“We all see these things but Jerry sees them with an artist’s eye and captures them for all the rest of us,” Pritchett said. “‘Responding to Home’ will be a popular show because we can all relate to it. We’ve been there and seen that but Jerry Siegel allows us to see it all in a different way.”Siegel’s exhibit will open on February 24 in the Johnson Center’s lower gallery. Mike Howard’s exhibit “A Journey Home” will be featured in the upper gallery. Thus, bringing together two artists who are deeply rooted in the Southern culture.Scott Meyer’s exhibit, “Crucibles and Icons of High Heat” will close on Saturday.

BUMC members enjoy service at historic Clay Hill

first_img Members of Brundidge United Methodist Church travelled to Clay Hill Church on Sunday for services and a dinner on the grounds. Organizers said worshipping in the historic church helps members recall their heritage and their history. Above, The Hendersons led the music at the services.Brundidge United Methodist Church was built on the Akron Plan with classrooms arranged across the back walls of the church on both the main floor and balcony levels with easy access to the central auditorium space. The historic church has stained glass windows, an organ and it’s climate controlled.But on Heritage Sunday, the congregation held services at Clay Hill Church, a simple church with four walls, a plank floor and windows that could be raised  – and were raised – to let the breeze come through.“Every now and then, it’s good to get away from the church comforts and worship like our grandparents did – in an old country church,” said Margaret Ross, chair of the BUMC worship committee. “Clay Hill Church is part of our church. We didn’t realize or know that for a long time. When the Methodist Conference closed Clay Hill, it was just by chance that we found out that Clay Hill Church had been deeded to BUMC.

We wanted to preserve it.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “We want to have more services and events at Clay Hill,” Ross said. “It’s a plain and simple church with a great tradition and a wonderful spirit.
