Reimagining the way we use space could reawaken our deserted high streets

first_imgWorkers utilising under-used daytime spaces in cafes and restaurants to freelance would bring people through the door and lead to a much-needed upswing in refreshments bought during the day – which can be dead hours for many high street restaurants, cafes and bars.This is already happening in some cities, with startups in the US and the UK partnering with restaurants, bars and cafes to upgrade wifi provision, rethink the way space is laid out, and offer apps and online services to connect workers to relevant spaces.By repurposing these spaces, these companies provide an economical solution for all involved, allowing property owners to maximise earning potential by making money in their off-hours, while providing more flexible and cheaper methods for remote working.With more people than ever working remotely, including employees from SMEs and major corporations, many are seeking cost effective flexible working spaces. And latent capacity can be optimised by reworking areas of the high street to encourage footfall.The creation of retail hubs is another way space reprogramming can act to reawaken the high street – through banding groups of shops together to spare space, the store is cheaper to operate. Reimagining the way we use space could reawaken our deserted high streets Sanj Mahal Gatherings of multi-use businesses can be united under one banner and website or positioned as an interactive destination.Collaborating with complementary retailers and brands and ensuring the area can double up for other uses –such as serving as an event or co-working space – adds a community element and ensures consumers are happy to spend more hours there, take advantage of more of the high street’s services, and are likely to spend money.Supermarket sprawl, out-of-town shopping, and the internet have all contributed to the creation of a shopping mono-culture on the high street.By redesigning streets to encourage lingering, instead of being constructed to optimise the passage of cars and people, we can motivate consumers to move more slowly within a space – making it more creative and sociable.Promoting more community uses for space would stimulate people to remain in places for longer. A group of some of the biggest restaurants in the UK have called on the government to tax web giants in order to save the high street. Networking together, collaborating on a work project, uniting to attend a local art or tech project, would create relationships and attract people to a place.As they stay longer, people are consequently more likely to make use of the services around, including shops, restaurants and cafes.Re-imagining high streets as destinations for socialising, culture, work and creativity would reawaken deserted spaces and open the high street up to new uses for a greater variety of people. Since 2008, 11,000 major high street outlets have gone bust, while 1,500 restaurant insolvencies were reported in the UK in 2017, and 15,000 more are under threat.The restaurant sector is wrestling with the concatenating circumstances of tighter consumer spending, business rate hikes, and ecommerce behemoths paying 20 times less tax than UK restaurants expend on competitive locations.With no checks yet in place to prevent big web companies from dominating the retail sector, rethinking the way we use space could be the answer to reviving the ailing high street.With half of the UK’s workforce is projected to be freelance by 2020, remote jobs and flexible working are clearly here to stay.The high street can adapt to this change by encouraging people to use their spaces to hot-desk.

Also Read: New foreign investment powers will create ‘considerable uncertainty’ for business “This is crucial given the openness of the UK economy and the importance of foreign direct investment. With the end of the transition period for Brexit on the horizon, it is important for overseas investors to know the UK remains an open, welcoming and reliable destination for business.” And aviation body ADS chief exec Paul Everitt said that the government would have to strike a balance between protecting vulnerable assets and companies and encouraging new investment. “If the legislation is adopted in its proposed form, detailed guidance on its operation will be required as well as the possibility of early engagement with BEIS”, he warned. Ashurst partner Nigel Parr said it was a “sea change” for the UK’s regulatory regime, which could have unintended consequences: Edward Thicknesse According to financial data firm Refinitiv, UK inbound M&A activity with a foreign acquiror has been worth over $125bn in 2020 year to date and makes up 61% of total M&A volumes.

New transparency should be ‘welcomed’ The last time the law was updated was back in 2002’s Enterprise Act. The new regulations bring the UK’s investment environment in line with allies such as the US and Australia, which have both introduced stringent measures in recent years. If not, warned Cornelia Andersson, Head of M&A at Refinitiv, the legislation “could spell costly delays for M&A activity in the UK and may add more pressure to a challenging post-Brexit outlook next year.” Share A new law giving the government the power to block foreign takeovers will create “considerable uncertainty” for businesses, City firms have warned today. The legislation identifies 17 sectors deemed of significance to national security – such as civil nuclear power and telecoms – which are subject to conditions which mean officials must be told of any potential deals. Richard Butterwick, partner at law firm Latham & Watkins, commented: “As a global financial centre, the creation of a screening review that is transparent in its requirements and processes is an important step in promoting continued external investment to the UK.  whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeBigGlobalTravelCelebrities That Are Still Married TodayBigGlobalTravelAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorPost FunGreat Songs That Artists Are Now Embarrassed OfPost FunGameday NewsMichael Oher Tells A Whole Different Story About ‘The Blind Side’Gameday NewsBleacherBreaker41 Old Toys That Are Worth More Than Your HouseBleacherBreakerLiver Health1 Bite of This Melts Belly And Arm Fat (Take Before Bed)Liver HealthExplored Planet40 Things People Should Reconsider Wearing On A PlaneExplored Planet “The new regime will cast a very wide net… [which could lead to] a potential reduction in deal certainty and an increase in overall execution risk, at least until the Government’s approach becomes clear and hopefully predictable.” “The Government’s plans must strike an appropriate balance between putting protections in place and continuing to ensure the UK remains an attractive environment for international investment”, he said. Law could see ‘costly delays’ The National Security and Investment Bill, which was published today, has been labelled the “most significant” change to the UK’s investment regime in decades. Before the Open newsletter: Start your day with the City View podcast and key market data Jonathon Gunn, Associate at Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, said that the fact that the law was focused on national security rather than national interest was key. The new legislation will see investments screened within 30 days, rather than the current case-by-case system, which will speed up the majority of transactions. “In a time of increased regulatory scrutiny of deals across the globe, the transparency this new process brings to transactions with a nexus to the UK is to be welcomed.” David Harrison, competition law expert at international law firm Mayer Brown, said that the new regime was “in line with some of the most far-reaching regimes for the review of foreign investment worldwide”. But many are concerned that the new regime, which increases the scope for officials to scrutinise, intervene in and ultimately void deals deemed of a threat to national security, could make the UK a less attractive destination for business.last_img read more

 

Uber hires Goldman Sachs to power up its fundraising drive

first_imgUber has hired Goldman Sachs to help it raise funds from some of the bank’s richest clients.It is offering financial products that could raise hundreds of billions of dollars, and help aid Uber’s future international expansion plans, Fortune has said. This is separate to a previous report from Bloomberg, which said Uber was in early talks to raise $1bn to fund growth.The ever-expanding taxi app is already available in 50 countries including the US, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore.Goldman Sachs is already an institutional investor in Uber, according to the Financial Times.If the company opted to float, it’s likely the investment bank would vie for a leading role. However, at present, it has no confirmed plans to do so.To date, Uber has raised funds from, among others, Fidelity Investments, Google Ventures and BlackRock.The ride-sharing service, which is headquartered in San Francisco, has courted controversy since coming to London around two years ago.London’s  Licensed Taxi Drivers Association organised thousands of cabbies to stage a protest against the company, bringing London’s streets to a standstill in June.They were joined by cab drivers from all over Europe who were unsatisfied with Uber’s regulatory status.

IMF Launches Climate Change Indicators Dashboard

first_imgIMF Launches Climate Change Indicators Dashboard Washington, DC The International Monetary Fund (IMF) today launched a newClimate Change Indicators Dashboard—an international statistical initiative to address the growing need for data in macroeconomic and financial policy analysis to facilitate climate change mitigation and adaptation.The Dashboard is a single platform that brings together experimental climate change indicators that allows comparison across countries. The indicators have been developed in cooperation with international organizations and other agencies including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Bank Group (WBG), the United Nations (UN), the European Commission, the European Statistical Office (Eurostat), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).The indicators presented are the result of estimates from IMF staff and other publicly available data sources.The selection and development of the experimental indicators are driven by the IMF’s need for member countries surveillance, monitoring, policy making, and research. The Dashboard covers greenhouse gas emissions from economic activity, trade in environmental goods, green finance, government policies, and physical and transition risks.“To develop the right measures to tackle climate change, governments need robust and comparable data. The new IMF Dashboard will help fill data gaps, so policymakers can undertake the macroeconomic and financial analysis that underpins effective policies,” IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said.The indicators are grouped into 4 categories:Economic Activity and Climate;Cross-Border;Financial, Physical and Transition Risks; andGovernment Policy indicators. The four categories broadly reflect four dimensions: production, consumption and final demand, financing, and government policies. Additional indicators, country coverage and granularity are planned to be added over time. /Public Release.

Nurses concerned for health and safety of patients at Letterkenny University Hospital

first_img Harps come back to win in Waterford Nurses concerned for health and safety of patients at Letterkenny University Hospital Facebook Pinterest Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty WhatsApp WhatsApp Twitter The INMO has given more details of the overcrowding crisis at Letterkenny University Hospital which saw 46 sick people without a bed making it the most overcrowded in Ireland.The organisation has called for action saying people were waiting for beds in an unsafe and unsatisfactory environment.The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation says the bed capacity problem at Letterkenny University Hospital continues to worsen with the escalation policy partially invoked almost continually over the past six weeks in order to deal with increasing bed demand.It says elective work continues at the hospital despite the increased attendances at the Emergency Department stating this policy is for use in exceptional circumstances as opposed to everyday use.The organisation says that nursing staff are seriously concerned regarding the health and safety of patients and this cannot continue.They says nurses are fearful that patients are being put at risk on a daily basis while they strive to deliver basic care while there are wards in the hospital with insufficient nurses to deliver basic nursing care.The INMO says this situation is now causing untold human suffering for patients with nurses regularly taken from an already short staffed ward to cover in other areas.The INMO wants the HSE to implement its own escalation policy in response to this crisis situation; the immediate cancellation, for a number of days, of planned elective admissions/procedures and an independent review of the existing practices/processes at the hospital DL Debate – 24/05/21 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Pinterestcenter_img News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Homepage BannerNews By News Highland – May 31, 2017 Twitter Google+ Facebook Previous articleBig day at the Aviva for Donegal SchoolsNext articleLeo Varadkar seemingly contradicts Minister Joe McHugh’s timeline on benefits review News Highland Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Google+last_img read more
