The Commission is examining the miners’ planned $116bn (£73.54bn) iron ore production joint venture in western Australia to determine whether it is anti-competitive. Rio Tinto, the world’s second-largest iron ore producer, and BHP, the third-largest, have said that retaining separate marketing operations under the joint venture should ease regulatory concerns.

It follows similar results last week from the John Lewis Partnership, which saw sales up 8.9 per cent compared to last year. But House of Fraser outperformed its rival at stores open for a year or more, posting an 8.5 per cent like-for-like rise compared to John Lewis’ 7.6 per cent.House of Fraser chief executive John King also said the group had seen a sharp increase in online sales, which were up 120 per cent on last year. He added that department stores in particular had managed to buck the trend for decreased shopper traffic and sales during Christmas trading because they were “desirable as a one-stop shop” during the freezing weather that hit the UK in December. The group’s newly-refurbished stores contributed the most to revenues, with like-for-like sales at these stores up by 10 per cent. King said that the programme of store revamps would continue throughout 2011, with focus shifting to the group’s outlets in Bath and on London’s Oxford Street. House of Fraser’s range of in-house fashion brands, which was boosted by revived label Biba, also performed well. New labels saw 50 per cent sales growth over the period.Online sales have proved a key source of revenue for retailers this year, with supermarket figures due this week predicted to show J Sainsbury and Tesco gaining market share from rival Wm Morrison, which does not have a strong online presence. House of Fraser’s website followed the trend. For the first time, online Christmas sales were higher than at any of its outlets, including Oxford Street. King told City A.M. that he expects growth to continue, predicting that House of Fraser’s online sales will “double every year for the next three years”.

Ari is a commercial development comprising of nine apartments and a ground floor retail tenancy. The building is located in Hawthorn East in Melbourne, just east of Auburn Village in the heart of the historical brick-making area, and only a stone’s throw away from the original brickworks site itself.Save this picture!© Paul CarlandGiven the site’s location, the project investigated the opportunities of the humble brick beyond a simple façade material and explored how the brick can be assembled to create detailed patterns on the buildings envelope which in turn evokes a sense of lightness and transparency as the brick’s ‘hit and miss’ openings not only provide privacy for its residents, but an interesting natural-light play to the courtyards and internal spaces. This ‘ode’ to the brick couples as a contemporary reminder of an important element in Hawthorn’s early industrial history while showcasing how the material continues to be successfully detailed for contemporary architecture in Melbourne.Save this picture!© Paul CarlandWhere possible the bricks of the demolished and dilapidated Victorian shopfront were maintained and used as brick on edge paving for the ground floor pathways and courtyard providing a physical connection with the site’s past for anyone who enters the site. Also during demolition, a 120 year old painted advertising sign was discovered on a neighbouring party wall. Efforts were made to alter the design so that the sign could be preserved to not only add a fascinating point of difference to some of the external courtyards but to further contribute to the layering of history and recognition of the sites past.Save this picture!© Paul CarlandA transparent timber batten façade partially screens the brick mass to the street, while connecting the building to the ground as the brick mass floats beyond effortlessly upon the timber screen stilts. The timber screen ghosts the mass of the previous building, and together with a restrained material palette, the new apartment building can sit sympathetically among the Victorian shopfronts that line Burwood Road. When viewing the site from the rear laneway, the building is surrounded by over-developed large scale apartment buildings and the modest use of black brick and perforated steel allow the building to have a strong sense of sturdiness and solidarity to ensure it will never lose its sense of place.Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Paul CarlandProject gallerySee allShow lessARK / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSelected Projects5 Shortlisted to Redesign the Entrance of London’s Science MuseumArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:729 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn East VIC 3123, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

These regions have a concentration of persons over the age of 100.Researchers have found nine areas where Fort Worth residents can change their lifestyles in order to lead more healthy lives.“This isn’t about living longer,” Mayor Betsy Price told NBC 5’s Cynthia McFadden. “This is about having more life in your years.”Fort Worth is trying to reach out to the community through schools, city government, employers, restaurants and grocery stores.Three local restaurants: Juice Junkies, Righteous Foods and La Perla Negra, are the city’s first Blue Zones project-approved restaurants. These restaurants have adopted practices such as only serving bread when it is requested and offering smaller portions of popular dishes.They also offer no free refills on sweetened beverages and no salt on the table unless it is requested.“We are excited about celebrating the first Blue Zones Project Approved restaurants and continuing our collaboration with other local establishments,” said Suzanne Duda, vice president of the Fort Worth Blue Zones Project.“The Fort Worth restaurant community has been very creative, offering up new ideas and looking at new ways to use existing ingredients to help make the healthy choice the easy choice in Fort Worth.”Vera Wicker (99) at her assisted living home on a Thursday afternoon in Fort Worth, TX.One local woman, Vera Wicker, born in 1915, is 99 years old. She lives at the Stayton, an assisted living home in Fort Worth. She says that there aren’t any secrets to a long life.“My mother was a very good provider and saw that we got what we needed, she made lots of healthy meals…during the depression we ate lots of potatoes,” says Wicker.Wicker said that she doesn’t eat potatoes anymore, but she enjoys playing Gin Rummy with a group of five women everyday. She said she is a firm believer in having a strong sense of community.Dan Buettner, the New York Times bestselling author of The Blue Zones Solution, explains why the healthiest people on earth are living well into their 100s. In his book, he reveals how to transform your health by choosing smart eating and lifestyle habits.He calls it the “Power 9“, which includes:Walking; instead of taking your car everywhere, try to ride a bike or walk.Purpose; have a strong sense of belonging within your community. Buettner says that purpose adds up to seven years of extra life expectancy.Less stress; stress leads to chronic inflammation.The 80 percent rule; stop eating when your stomach is 80 percent full.  This will keep you from overeating and remind you not to eat everything on your plate.Eat beans; many people in these Blue Zones eat beans every day and eat meat about five times per month.Wine; researchers say that moderate drinkers outlive non-drinkers, especially if one drinks with friends.Belonging; attend a community or faith-based service at least four times a month.  According to Buettner, this adds up to 14 years of life expectancy.Family; commit to a life partner and keep family time important.Support; surround yourself with people that support you and your lifestyle.Buettner says that 80 percent of chronic disease such as cancer, dementia, heart disease and diabetes are avoidable.To learn more about the Blue Zones Project visit their website.  To learn more about events in Fort Worth, visit the Fort Worth site here.Madeline Hamm is a education and community reporter for The 109.  Email her at [email protected]  Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more
