The South East saw rents drop by 3 per cent month-on-month and they were down 2 per cent in the South West and 1.2 per cent in London.By contrast, Wales witnessed a 2.9 per cent rise in rents. They also rose by 1 per cent in the East Midlands, the West Midlands saw a 0.4 per cent increase and Yorkshire and the Humber a 0.2 per cent hike.But despite the recent fall, on average, rents have increased significantly over the past 12 months, up 4 per cent compared to November 2014, led by gains in London where rents are up 8.9 per cent year-on-year.Rents in East of England rose by 8.4 per cent. They are also up 5.1 per cent in the East Midlands. By contrast, Wales has seen rents fall 3.8 per cent year-on-year and the South East is down 3.5 per cent.While rents are currently slowing, they are widely expected to increase in 2016, owed in part to the new 3 per cent stamp duty which will become payable on buy-to-let properties from April 2016 as this charge gets passed on to tenants.“Most likely this (stamp duty increase) will push rents higher still and indicates an earlier spring for rent rises in 2016,” said Adrian Gill (left), Director of Reeds Rains and Your Move.The index also revealed that the gross yield on a typical rental property in England and Wales, before taking into account factors such as void periods, dropped to 5 per cent in November, down from 5.1 per cent in October 2015. This is also higher than the 5.1 per cent gross yield recorded in November 2014.Taking into account both rental income and ]capital growth, the average landlord in England and Wales has seen total returns of 10.9 per cent over the 12 months ending November 2015, up from 10.4 per cent in October 2015, thanks mainly to a rise in property prices.In absolute terms this means that the average landlord in England and Wales has seen a return of £19,668, prior to any deductions. Of this, the average capital gain contributed £11,057 while rental income made up £8,611 over the 12 months to November.Adrian Gill average rents rental prices rents rents fall December 22, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

18 July 2008South Africans have reason to thank Nelson Mandela not only for his role in their country’s liberation from apartheid, but also for the part he played in ensuring that the world’s greatest sporting showpiece, the Fifa World Cup, comes to Africa for the first time in 2010.‘Against doctor’s orders’Mandela reportedly went against the orders of his doctor, who told him he could not attend the 2010 Fifa World Cup host country announcement ceremony in Zurich, Switzerland in May 2004.When South Africa was announced as the host country, overwhelmed with joy and emotions, tears could be seen streaming from Mandela’s eyes.There are many extraordinary photographs of him, but one that captured the spirit of South Africa’s foremost sporting achievement is of a beaming Mandela holding onto the Jules Rimet Trophy.Reconciliation through sportDuring his presidency, Mandela, who was an avid boxer in his days, lifted more trophies than any other South African leader, and has widely recognised the importance of sport in helping to promote reconciliation.Sporting a Springbok rugby jersey and cap, he presented the coveted Webb Ellis Trophy to the then South African skipper Francois Pienaar to the delight of the capacity crowd at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg on 24 June 1995 after the hosts beat the New Zealand All Blacks.South Africa had been a country divided for decades by the apartheid regime, but thanks to the unyielding willpower of this statesman the whole country came together to unite behind the Springboks.Barely a year later, Mandela would take to the podium again to present Africa’s most sought after football trophy, the African Cup of Nations, to the then Bafana Bafana captain Neil Tovey. As with the Rugby World Cup, Nelson Mandela was sporting a Bafana jersey and cap.In honour of Madiba, who reportedly said: “I feel like a young man of 15” after hearing the announcement, South Africa and South Africans alike should work together to make the hosting of the World Cup a successful event.Preaching the spirit of UbuntuProbably one of the most recognisable men the world over, with all the accolades and awards under his belt, Mandela has remained rooted to the ground, ever-so-humble and preaching the spirit of Ubuntu to those who are willing to listen.Even after South Africa was announced as the World Cup host nation, he reportedly said: “South Africans should treat this decision with humility and without arrogance because we are, after all, equal.”As South Africans celebrate the man affectionately known as Tata, it is important to heed his call for humility and treat the occasion as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to Celebrate Africa’s Humanity and use the tournament to unify, encourage and develop South Africans – and ultimately Africans.In another 2010 milestone, Nelson Mandela returned to Robben Island, where he was incarcerated for 18 years, to mark his 89th birthday last year.The celebrations featured a star-studded line-up of about 50 past and present football superstars who took part “90 Minutes for Mandela” match at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town on 18 July.Power to bring people togetherAccording to Madiba, football on Robben Island was more than just a game. It was seen as a sport for survival. “It helped uphold the values of tolerance, of inclusiveness and reconciliation, and of non-racialism and peace that are still dear to all of us today.”“Today is indeed an extra special birthday for me, as I have been given this wonderful gift of a football match played in my honor,” Mandela said in a recorded message before the match. “This match is more than just a game – it symbolises the power of football to bring people together from all over the world, regardless of the language they speak or the colour of their skin.”South Africans have a history of rising to the occasion – and of all the challenges the country has faced in the past, none is greater than those the country has already overcome.In 2010, Madiba will be 92, and staging a successful World Cup will certainly go a long way to celebrate and thank him for the human being that he is.Source: BuaNews
Filmmaking fads come and go, but that’s no reason why up-and-coming filmmakers shouldn’t experiment with the trend du jour.Every year, we start to see an increase in content with some specific filmmaking technique in the spotlight. So much so that you can’t tune into your favorite content creator without seeing it. And there are also those who come to resent the enthusiastic use of certain filmmaking methods. So why all the fuss?As you can see in the video above, Jakob Bowen — from The Buff Nerds — is uncomfortable with the overuse of gimbals in recent years (we touch more on this later). For my part, I wince when loading up a short film to see that it’s been graded with the vastly overused M31 LUT. If the underworld exists, it’s undoubtedly coated in orange and teal. Fads and trends come and go at such a rapid pace, it’s hard to remember what the in-season technique was last spring.Over the last decade, we’ve seen a surge in the following techniques from amateur and semi-professional filmmakers online:Shallow depth of fieldSliding/tracking shotsTime-lapsesGimbalVR/360Drone New Tech, Low CostIn the spring of 2011, I finally got my hands on the 5D Mk II. From that day on (for the entire summer), nearly everything I shot was at f/1.2. Of course, nearly everything was also hazy and quickly falling in and out of focus. However, I had longed for shallow depth of field for years. And after spending many months researching how to add a 35mm adapter to the Canon HV20, and years yearning for a camera that could even remotely yield a “cinematic” feel, I most definitely was not about to start using aperture settings correctly.This mindset didn’t get me very far. It was fun but impractical.With the increase of affordable, full-frame cameras, shallow depth of field and rack focusing took over the YouTube filmmaking community like a virus in a crowded city. Could you even call a travel video a travel video if you didn’t have a rack focus from a flower into the picturesque landscape behind? No, you could not. Of course, with the rise of shooting absolutely everything with a wide aperture, filmmaking fora were ablaze with disgruntled voices concerned about the overuse of shallow depth of field. Shallow depth of field should be used as a cinematic tool to direct focus, not to create bokeh in the gas station just to make the scene look “filmic.”Image via Bhakpong.In a 2011 article for Filmmaker Magazine, “Is Shallow Depth-of-Field a Fad?,” Michael Murie highlighted a few comments from professionals regarding the shallow depth of field craze at the start of the 2000s.I’ve noticed some grumblings about our current fascination with shallow depth-of-field. At a recent workshop I attended, cinematographer Barry Braverman said: ‘The current vogue, which is starting to taper off finally, was the “shallow depth-of-field is better” idea. Is your nose in focus and eyes out of focus something you want? . . . Again, this is my deal. You guys can do whatever you want. Yes, you want depth of field control, but shallow depth of field is not going to deliver you the panacea. It is a tool to be used wisely, just like any other tool.’The internet (and industry professionals) didn’t have long to argue, as shortly after the wealth of shallow depth-of-field shots, suddenly everything became about time-lapses. Moving time-lapse of the Milky Way, time-lapses of the same location during different seasons, time-lapses of the camera moving otherworldly through a crowded city. If there was something that dynamically changed throughout the day — or even the year — you could bet there was a filmmaker or photographer sitting somewhere creating magic.So, where exactly do these fads come from?It’s not as if one day someone somewhere invents a new technique and suddenly everyone wants in. All the methods, sans VR, have been used in motion picture and television for decades, which is precisely why these techniques become so popular. For the first time since watching these techniques employed on the big screen, the small consumer can finally replicate the shot — for just a fraction of the cost.Canon’s initial foray into the amateur-to-professional video market set off a chain reaction in the equipment and accessory industry. Consumers finally had access to cameras that, to some extent, were creating results that had been restricted to the big screen. But there was a vacuum that needed to be filled. While consumers could shoot full-frame at f/1.8, they couldn’t move the camera the same way that feature film productions could. You still had to rent a track and dolly, or turn to YouTube to find out how to build your own.At first, the new “budget-friendly alternative” often isn’t that budget-friendly — not for low or no-budget filmmakers.Take the MōVI, for example. If you’re not familiar with the rig, I’m sure you may remember marveling at the behind-the-scenes footage of the cam op on roller skates, gliding from the street to the taxi.As Danny Greer said in a PremiumBeat post from the archives, “The MōVI camera system is set to completely change camera stabilization in the professional video production industry.”It was completely revolutionary because the stabilizer was built around gyro stabilization and accelerometers. No need for the clunky Steadicam vests and weights when this rig does the same job with more agility and less setup. But there was the $14,995 price tag — not necessarily a low-budget entry point for a stabilizer for your 5D.However, when new technology like this enters the market, you can also count on the fact that, a few years later, we’ll see similar technology at a fraction of the cost — such as the Ronin M, which you can get brand new for $800. That’s a huge difference in price. Of course, there are reasons, as you can see below.MōVI vs. Ronin discussion aside, the point is that these types of stabilization shots were really only produced by top-tier productions because it’s not like every enthusiast has $50,000 in the bank for an ARRI Trinity. But for a Ronin-M? Absolutely. Therefore, we’re going to see an abundance of content that consists solely of footage captured on a gimbal, because never before have enthusiasts and aspiring filmmakers been able to mimic camera movement from the big screen, for such a low cost. To revert back to Jakob’s video featured in the introduction, he rightly states the following:Everybody and their grandmother have been shooting on gimbals and only gimbals. Whether it’s on YouTube, Instagram, or another social media platform, it seems like every single person is shooting every piece of content on a gimbal.Jakob goes on to say that “You have to use those filmmaking tools (gimbal) at your disposal to elicit an emotion, or tell the audience how they’re supposed to be feeling, in this moment.” I agree (looking at your drone footage and M31 grading). However, is this a stance we should take? Just like fashion trends and the evolution of music, this isn’t a process that we, as individuals, can stop or change. But is there a need to do so? The trends and fads in online content rarely (at the time of their popularity) shift into feature films and television, and in essence, it’s just young content creators having fun with tools that weren’t available ten years ago.As I found out when filming everything at f/1.2, I believe that those who create content (and overuse a technique) will learn to understand the value of the method. I also believe that new content creators today learn that using technology to achieve a specific shot will appear more profound when used sparingly, to elicit an emotion. But for the time being, content creators have the figurative ability to fly to the moon. That’s something to revel in, not dismiss.Cover image via Dmitry Kalinovsky.Looking for more film and video tips and tricks?

SAN FRANCISCO – Netflix regained its stride with surprisingly strong subscriber growth in the third quarter, after an unexpected springtime stumble triggered fears that it was losing its allure.The video-streaming service added 7 million subscribers worldwide from July through September, far above the company’s target of 5 million and exceeding analyst projections.Netflix fell well shy of its subscriber goals for the April-to-June period, raising fears that fiercer competition from Amazon, Hulu, HBO and other streaming services was siphoning away viewers.In a show of confidence, Netflix predicted it will pick up another 9.4 million subscribers during the current quarter ending in December — traditionally one of the company’s busiest times because of all the subscriptions given as holiday gifts. Even so, the forecast calls for 1.1 million more subscribers than Netflix gained in the same period last year.Netflix ended September with 137 million worldwide subscribers, including 58.5 million in the U.S.“Netflix’s strong quarter will at least temporarily put to rest questions over the long-term viability of its business,” said eMarketer analyst Paul Verna.Investors lifted Netflix’s stock by more than 11 per cent to $386.30 in extended trading. The stock still remains below its record high of $423.21 in June, just before the subscriber-growth scare Netflix announced in July.Subscriber growth has always been more important to investor perceptions of Netflix than its relatively small profits. Investors are counting on Netflix to grow quickly in order to gain an insurmountable advantage over streaming rivals in an increasingly crowded market.In an effort to be more precise and reduce the volatility in its stock, Netflix plans to exclude people on free trials of its service from its subscriber numbers. In a letter to shareholders Tuesday, Netflix said it believes paid subscribers now are a more stable indicator of how well the service is doing.“I’m afraid the (second quarter-to-third quarter) story is probably mostly an issue of forecasting as opposed to anything changing in the business,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said during comments broadcast in an online video.On the financial front, Netflix earned $403 million on revenue of $4 billion in the quarter. But the company continued to burn through cash to pay for its programming, which includes a critically acclaimed selection of shows such as “Stranger Things,” ”Orange Is The New Black,” and “Ozark.”In a coup, Netflix shows won 23 Emmys in last month’s awards ceremony, tying HBO for the most among all TV networks.The laurels are proving expensive. Netflix had a negative cash flow of $859 million in the third quarter, nearly doubling from a negative cash flow of $465 million last year. The trend raises the possibility that Netflix might need to borrow money to pay its bills, something that is getting more expensive to do as interest rates rise.
OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says maple syrup production fell by 21.7 per cent to 44.5 million litres in 2018, the lowest level in three years.Production was down in every syrup-producing province except Nova Scotia and Ontario, which saw output rise 9.4 per cent to 2.1 million litres, the most since 2011.Quebec produced 40.4 million litres, down 22.4 per cent from 2017 due to unusually late snow and cold, while New Brunswick output fell 34.5 per cent to 1.6 million litres.The total value of Canadian maple products decreased 22 per cent to $384.4 million, with the price of syrup remaining relatively unchanged at $39.24 per gallon.The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers tapped its strategic reserves this year to avoid wild price swings or supply shortages.Quebec produces about 72 per cent of the world’s maple syrup, with the rest of Canada producing eight per cent and the United States producing 20 per cent.The Canadian Press
Patna: Union Minister Giriraj Singh’s “reluctance” to contest Lok Sabha polls from Begusarai was comparable to a kid refusal to attend school in the event of failing to complete his homework, the CPI candidate from the seat Kanhaiya Kumar has said.”Watched the news on TV and learnt that the BJP minister known for sending off people to Pakistan on free of cost tours is not ready to come to Begusarai for contesting the polls”, Kumar said in a Facebook post late Monday night wherein he did not mention Singh by name. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainA firebrand BJP leader, Giriraj Singh had caused a stir ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls when he said “those opposed to Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan.” He has continued with similar outbursts since then, the latest instance being his threat that those not coming out in support of the Prime Ministers Patna rally on March 3 would be deemed “anti-national” even though he himself ended up remaining absent on account of ill-health. “I have a nephew who, similarly, refuses to go to school whenever he fails to do his homework. But even he never thinks of sending the teacher to Pakistan. Neither does he hate anybody nor he wants to get anybody expelled Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma Awardfrom the school”, Kanhaiya Kumar added sarcastically in the post. “This is the real India, vastly different from the shrill debates one watches on news channels”, the former JNU students union president, who first came into limelight upon being booked for sedition in connection with alleged raising of anti-national slogans at a function held inside the varsity premises. Kumars remarks came in the backdrop of Singh expressing unhappiness over his Nawada seat going to ally LJP this time. On Monday, he camped in New Delhi where he is believed to have tried to apprise the BJPs top leadership of his sentiments.
New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) has issued a show cause notice to Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta and asked him to take action against police officers who reportedly refused to register a complaint of a rape survivor. Citing a media report, NCW member Soso Shaiza said the commission is seriously concerned about the “reported police apathy in the matter and negligence shown by the police despite the provision of zero FIR in the law”. The media report said the SHO bickered with the victim over jurisdiction of where the complaint must be registered. “Considering the gravity of the matter, it is requested that strict action be taken against erring officials and a detailed action taken report be sent to the Commission at an early date,” Shaiza said.
Cairo- The screening of the Egyptian movie “Sweetness of Spirit” or “Halawet al roh” in Arabic starring Lebanese diva Haifa Wehbe was delayed by the Censorship Committee officials in Cairo.Scenes of Wehbe’s rape with actor Mohammad Lutfi and a scene of her kissing actor Basim Samrah in particular raised the concern of the committee, the news website noted.The committee refused to issue a permit for the film or any other decision regarding the movie because it was unfinished, Ahmad Awad, head of the Censorship Committee, told Al Arabiya News channel. No comments will be given nor censorship will be imposed until “Sweetness of spirit” is fully completed, Awad said.The London based daily news website Elaph reported that the Censorship Committee decided to delay the film’s release after they discovered it contained profanities and sexually provocative scenes.“Sweetness of spirit” revolves around a woman named Roh who tries to overcome the daily hardships of her life.Egypt already had restrictions on film makers in place under President Hosni Mubarak, requiring them to seek approval from the Censorship Bureau to screen their work.After his overthrow in 2011, film makers were hoping for more artistic freedom, but critics of the government say little has changed, according to Reuters.Wehbe is a renowned model, singer and socialite who is regarded by admirers and observers as an Arab beauty icon and as a ‘sex bomb’ by fans.Source: Al Arabiya

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Premier salutes FortisTCI on round the clock work to restore electricity and visits 14 resorts after June 4 black out Related Items:crude oil, FORTIStci, gas prices, malike cummings, OPEC Editorial: Listen to your Mama Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 07 Jan 2015 -Significant price differences in the cost of fuel at our gas stations are raising concern in The Turks and Caicos; some fuel pumps are offering gas by the gallon for pennies under six dollars; while others are well over that six dollar price; one writer put a figure at $6.21. The writer adding in that letter to Magnetic Media, that the gap between the US price for fuel and the local price seems way too wide. The big buzz is how radically reduced costs are for oil by the barrel; falling to 2009 figures due to OPEC charges, over-supply and low demand globally. Crude oil prices are reported between $48 and $50 today; and those big dips will fall even further. We called Energy Commissioner of the TCI, Malike Cummings about the disparity; he again told us there is still no legislation to control what service stations do with their pricing at the pumps but that the upcoming budget year may see that changed. “As related to the gas stations, we do not have the legislation in placed to actually regulate prices. So that has been a challenge but we are looking forward to having those regulations in place.” The motoring public is therefore at the mercy of the conscience of the gas station owners. Mr. Cummings explained that he has met with some fuel station owners where there has been little to no movement in the cost per gallon of gas only to be told the shipment of the fuel here is why the change is slight. “There is a lag between the price you see at the world crude oil prices, and the price you will see here because that’s crude oil, it has to be refined so there is a supply chain and logistics and time lag we have to cater for. So typically we are about a few months behind what you will see in the US.” Later we focus on Mr. Cummings remarks’ about the changes in costs by Fortis TCI, the nation’s power supplier.
