Westfield said occupancy at its US malls was increasing and its main Australian market was also holding up. However, it said it was too soon for major new investments becuse of the uncertain outlook.“The majority of the development work that we have going forward at the moment is concentrated on Australia because there is strong demand from retailers,” Peter Lowy, Westfield’s co-group managing director said.The Sydney-based group, which has 119 malls in the UK, Australia, the US and New Zealand, said that net profit for the six months ended 30 June was A$961m (£554.5m) compared with a net loss of A$708m a year earlier.It was the first time Westfield has posted a profit since the first half of 2008, as retailers inside its malls experienced lower sales due to the recession.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. It’s been almost 26 years since the first National Lottery draw. While there have been plenty of lucky winners over this period, millions more will have wasted their money. Today, I’m going to explain just how costly this ‘little bit of fun’ has been. The true cost of the National LotteryLet’s ignore the new games and changes in ticket prices that have happened over the time the National Lottery has been around for. Instead, we’ll simply assume that someone has spent £20 playing every week for the last 25 years and that they have had no ‘wins’ whatsoever (i.e., not even three numbers) over this period. Based on the odds, this is certainly not impossible.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…All told, I calculate this person has spent £1040 per year and a staggering £26,000 in total.Think about that. That’s £26,000 that could have been spent on luxurious holidays, a new car, or some pretty awesome gadgets. More sensibly, that money could have been used as a house deposit or paid for the vast proportion of a child’s university tuition fees. But wait – it gets a lot worse for our hypothetical lottery player! Had they invested that money in the stock market instead, they would likely be quids in.Nevermind how much money they lost, let’s see how much money they could have made.Crikey – how much?!Assuming an annual return of 10%, that £26,000 would now be worth a little over £102,000. Had they prioritised investing in small-cap and/or high-growth stocks, and achieved, say, a 13% average annual return, they’d now be sitting on almost £162,000!To this, a sceptic might say that achieving such a big return over a long period would probably have involved an unnecessary level of risk. The average annual return is more likely to be around 7%, they might argue. Fair enough – this still gives our hypothetical investor almost £66,000 after 25 years. I’d rather have that than flush £26,000 down the National Lottery drain.Regardless of which return feels more realistic, surely we can agree that the true cost of playing the lottery is the opportunity cost of not allowing that money to grow instead?Knowing this, here’s what I’d do for the next 25 years. A better route to richesFirst, I’d set up a Stock and Shares ISA.The ISA allows us to protect any profits we make on the market from HR Revenue & Customs. There’s also no tax due on any dividends received. Interestingly, ISAs have been around since 1999 – only five years after the first National Lottery draw. Before then, you had Personal Equity Plans (or PEPs).Having done this, I’d then decide on my investment approach.For those who can’t devote much time to watching the market, a passive strategy might be best. This can be achieved through buying a bunch of cheap exchange-traded funds that track major indexes like the FTSE 100. This strategy won’t beat the market but it will match it (minus commission, fund fees, and a smidgen of tracking error).For those with time, however, I think searching for the best UK stocks could be far more financially rewarding. Look for companies with big brands, a dominant market position, strong finances, loyal customers, and/or a route to growth.You’ll make mistakes but the odds of becoming rich are, I submit, significantly better compared to those of holding a National Lottery winning ticket.

Foto de Amy Sowder.[Episcopal News Service] Don Robinson sostiene una hoja de col rizada en la mano derecha, apuntando hacia el cielo, mientras levanta la mirada en una oración silenciosa.Robinson, de la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental, se encontraba entre más de 200 episcopales y anglicanos procedentes de tan lejos como Alabama, Oregón y Sudáfrica, algo apiñados en el espacio que les habían asignado en la calle 58 del centro de Manhattan.Se encontraba allí en defensa del derecho humano de salvar a la Tierra y a todos sus seres vivientes de los efectos multiplicadores del cambio climático. “Tenemos una responsabilidad como mayordomos de la creación de Dios”, dijo Robinson.El domingo 21 de septiembre, más de 310.000 personas de todas las religiones participaron en la Movilización Climática de los Pueblos, la mayor demostración sobre el tema del clima de la historia, el mismo día en que tenían lugar una serie de eventos religiosos afines, entre ellos un oficio vespertino multirreligioso en la catedral de San Juan el Teólogo [St. John the Divine] en Nueva York.Episcopales de toda la nación y de algunos otros países se reunieron en una sección interreligiosa de la Movilización Climática de los Pueblos que tuvo lugar el 21 de septiembre en Nueva York, y en la que portaban carteles y pancartas de protestas, al tiempo que cantaban, oraban y coreaban consignas. Foto de Amy Sowder.La manifestación hizo un recorrido de 3.5 kilómetros de largo, desde la calle 93 y Central Park West hasta la calle 34, pasando por Columbus Circle y Times Square. Cerca del final, el contingente episcopal portaba carteles en los que podía leerse “No hay Planeta B”, “Por amor de Cristo, graven al carbón” y “Estoy manifestándome a favor de la vida silvestre (la cual también incluye a los humanos)”.La marcha fue auspiciada por más de 1.200 organizaciones, entre ellas las mayores entidades ambientalistas de la nación, sindicatos obreros, agrupaciones de carácter religioso y defensoras de la justicia social.Es un movimiento que trasciende a Nueva York e incluso Estados Unidos. Más de 2.800 eventos de solidaridad se llevaron a cabo en 166 países, y se produjeron manifestaciones desde Sydney, Australia y Budapest, Hungría, hasta Dar es-Salam, en Tanzania y Dhaka en Bangladesh.La iniciativa global se programó para dos días antes de la Cumbre de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Clima, convocada por el secretario general Ban Ki-moon, que empezó el 23 de septiembre en la sede principal de la ONU en Manhattan. La cumbre aplazó un día el debate general de la 69º. sesión de la Asamblea General de la ONU, que se extiende desde el 16 de septiembre hasta el 1 de octubre. Ban, que también tomó parte en la manifestación, invitó en la cumbre a líderes de gobiernos, las finanzas, las empresas y la sociedad civil a hacer audaces anuncios de que tomarán medidas para reducir las emisiones [de hidrocarburos], fortalecerán la resistencia climática y movilizarán la voluntad política para alcanzar un importante acuerdo legal en París en 2015.Además de Ban, algunos de los participantes más conocidos en la manifestación fueron el vicepresidente Al Gore, el legendario músico Sting, y los actores Leonardo DiCaprio y Mark Ruffalo.Entre tanto, los líderes de las iglesias Episcopal y Luterana emitieron juntos un mensaje pastoral sobre el cambio climático el 19 de septiembre.El cambio climático “va a afectar primero a los más pobres de nosotros”, dijo el hermano Bernard Delcourt de la Orden de la Santa Cruz, un monasterio benedictino anglicano de West Park, Nueva York. “Las personas que dependen de recursos naturales para su subsistencia en países en desarrollo ya están siendo afectadas”.Lella Lowe, miembro de la iglesia episcopal del Redentor [Episcopal Church of the Redeemer] en Mobile, Alabama, programó sus vacacione para asistir a la marcha. Ella esperaba crear la Coalición de Mobile en pro de la Justicia Medioambiental al objeto de evitar que Mobile se convirtiera en un importante centro de transporte de arenas alquitranadas.“O bien tienes un movimiento con dinero o un movimiento con gente, y cuando no tienes el dinero, tienes que motivar a la gente”, dijo Lowe. “Es hora de ver nuestro mundo como interconectado y que todo lo que hacemos afecta a los demás. Es algo crucial, y hay [muchos que] no quieren reconocerlo”.Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner estaba preparada para compartir su historia en la ceremonia de apertura de la Cumbre de la ONU sobre el Clima el 23 de septiembre. Dos días antes, la joven madre de las Islas Marshall subió al escenario entre otros varios activistas en una conferencia de prensa previa a la manifestación para decirle a la concurrencia cómo su país estaba en peligro de desaparecer debido al aumento del nivel del mar causado por el calentamiento global. Su isla está a dos pies sobre el nivel del mar.“Debemos actuar ahora. No podemos esperar. Sólo tenemos una tierra a la que llamar patria. Los necesitamos”, dijo Jetnik-Kijiner.La Movilización Climática de los Pueblos en Nueva York, encabezada por comunidades indígenas y por las que, procedentes de todas partes del mundo, resultan más expuestas al desproporcionado impacto del cambio climático: desde comunidades que fueron severamente afectadas por el huracán Sandy a las que viven cerca de las plantas de carbón y de refinerías de petróleo o de naciones isleñas que ya están contemplando la evacuación. Foto de Amy Sowder.Durante la manifestación, personas y agrupaciones, con diferencias políticas, religiosas y de otro tipo, se unieron en torno a un tema común. Los grupos interreligiosos se juntaron con científicos para la sección “El debate se acabó”. Otros grupos incluían a sindicatos obreros, agrupaciones de justicia medioambiental, defensores de la energía renovable, defensores de la justicia en materia de agua y comida, campañas anticorporativas y comunidades indígenas.En la sección interreligiosa, los episcopales desfilaron con judíos, bautistas, menonitas, agnósticos, cuáqueros, humanistas éticos, presbiterianos, metodistas y hare krisnas.Una mezquita inflable flotaba sobre una réplica de madera del arca de Noé. Globos terráqueos se balanceaban sobre la marea humana.Meteorólogos de la Administración Nacional Oceánica y Atmosférica anunciaron la semana pasada que este verano era el más caliente que se hubiera registrado en todo el planeta.“A pesar de los empeños de la ONU, los estados miembros no han hecho lo que debe hacerse —ni siquiera se han acercado— y los niveles de carbono han aumentado, no han disminuido. No sólo es más preocupante que nunca, es moralmente erróneo” dijo el Rdo. Canónigo Jeff Colliher de la iglesia de San Juan [St. John’s Church] en Ellenville, Nueva York, y presidente del ejecutivo del Comité sobre el Medioambiente de la Diócesis Episcopal de Nueva York.Gran parte del problema, dijo él, está creado por las políticas energéticas de las tres mayores economías con mayor crecimiento poblacional: Estados Unidos, China e India.Esos países deben contemplar la manera de crear una energía más limpia que la proveniente de combustibles fósiles, dijo Golliher, porque la creación de energía exige muchísima agua, “y estamos contemplando escasez de agua”.“Podemos estar creando soluciones que beneficien a los ricos más que a los pobres”, dijo Golliher, que asistió a la conferencia anual del Instituto Internacional del Agua en Estocolmo del 31 de agosto al 5 de septiembre. “El problema moral no es si el cambio climático es real —la mayoría de la población ya está enterada de esto. Es qué tipo de debate estamos teniendo para crear una economía basada en derechos humanos y en una sostenibilidad para que todos medren”.La Academia de Ciencias Nacional de EE.UU. publicó el resultado de una investigación en 2013 en que mostraba los abruptos cambios climáticos que ya están sucediendo, si bien otras amenazas potenciales no son tan inminentes. Las temperaturas más cálidas del Ártico han causado un rápido descenso en el hielo del mar durante la última década. El aumento de los niveles del mar amenaza las regiones costeras y las islas.Científicos de la Academia informan que otro abrupto cambio climático se encuentra en marcha: la creciente extinción de especies animales y vegetales debido al ritmo actual del cambio climático, un episodio de calentamiento que se espera aumente a lo largo de los próximos 30 a 80 años. El número de días libres de heladas, la longitud y el ritmo de las temporadas de cultivo y la frecuencia e intensidad de los fenómenos extremos son ejemplos de cambios que están ocurriendo tan velozmente que ningún cambio o adaptación resulta lo suficientemente rápido. Combinados con otras causas de pérdida de hábitat, degradación y desmedida explotación, el problema es aun peor, según el informe.Luego están los crecientes períodos de sequías en el oeste de EE.UU., en el norte de Irán y en África. “Lo que más les preocupa a los científicos es la imprevisibilidad, porque es incontrolable”, dijo Golliher.“Las emisiones de carbono son tan sólo un problema. Es el indicador. Tiene que ver con el poder, la igualdad y la justicia. ¿En qué clase de mundo queremos vivir?”, preguntó Golliher.Aunque el número inicial de participantes en la Movilización de los Pueblos del Mundo a las 2:00 P.M. del domingo 21 de septiembre en Nueva York se calculó en unos 310.000, para las 5:00 P.M. tantos otros se incorporaron que la participación final ascendió a cerca de 400.000 personas. Foto de Amy Sowder.Mientras legiones de personas inundaban las calles de Manhattan para enviar un mensaje a los miembros de la ONU, 30 líderes religiosos, en representación de nueve tradiciones diferentes firmaban una declaración en la que pedían acciones concretas para reducir las emisiones de gas carbónico. La conferencia interreligiosa fue coauspiciada por el Consejo Mundial de Iglesias —que incluye a 245 denominaciones que representan a 560 millones de cristianos en todo el mundo— y Religión y Paz, una coalición interreligiosa con miembros en más de 70 países. Los signatarios provenían de 21 países en seis continentes.La manifestación se concentró particularmente en resaltar la intersección entre las necesidades de las personas y el cambio climático, teniendo en cuenta vivienda, empleo y educación, dijo Elizabeth Yeampierre, directora ejecutiva de Uprose, que ayudó a dirigir la respuesta comunitaria al huracán Sandy después que azotó a Nueva York en octubre de 2012.“Creo que existe un temor a trabajar con personas de diferentes comunidades”, dijo Yeampierre.“Independientemente de cuál sea su campo, su pasión, todo el mundo está afectado por el cambio climático”, añadió, reconociendo que las personas desfavorecidas y el 1 por ciento que se encuentra en el ápice [de la pirámide social] están actuando al respecto y lo están haciendo públicamente.Todos los cambios importantes y profundos afectan al dinero y a las corporaciones de hidrocarburos que extraen de eso enormes ganancias, dijo Stanely Sturgill, un minero jubilado que trabajó en una mina subterránea de carbón en Kentucky.“Pero si no hacemos algo, no podremos respirar ni tener agua. Estamos luchando por el gas y el petróleo, pero pronto estaremos luchando por el agua. Una vez que pierdes el agua, no se hable más”.La familia Rockefeller, herederos de la fortuna de la Standard Oil Co., liquidará sus inversiones de su fundación en combustibles fósiles para ponerlas en fuentes de energía renovables, según un anuncio dado a conocer al tiempo de la Movilización de los Pueblos del Mundo y la Cumbre sobre el Clima en la ONU.Robinson, que desfiló con sus hermanos episcopales y con activistas interreligiosos, dijo que la Diócesis de Massachusetts Occidental decidió a principios de septiembre pasar alrededor del 20 por ciento de sus $60 millones de inversiones de combustibles fósiles a energía renovable.“Votamos después de debate un largo y arduo. Eso refleja el compromiso del obispo”, afirmó Robinson.Él vino a participar en la manifestación en el autobús “Episcopales en un Viaje de Esperanza” con más de 55 personas de las diócesis de Nueva Inglaterra que componen la I Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal. Organizada por la Rda. Stephanie Johnson, del ministerio de mayordomía medioambiental de la provincia, el autobús recogió a estudiantes de la Escuela de Teología de Berkeley en Yale.“Creo que esta manifestación puede sentar una pauta”, dijo Johnson. “He estado trabajando en el campo del medio ambiente por más de 30 años, y nunca había visto nada como esto”.Marchando cerca de Robinson y de Johnson, Anne Rowthorn, miembro de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Ana [St. Ann’s] en Old Lyme, Connecticut, hacía un gesto de asentimiento con la cabeza.“El tema más perentorio en defensa de la vida es la vida de nuestro planeta”, dijo Rowthorn. “Es el primer problema de nuestro época.“Tenemos que salir a la calle para hacerle saber a nuestros líderes que nos han decepcionado. Este es un mensaje para esos líderes que se reúnen esta semana”.— Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

The upgrade of the building in order to respect security, accessibility and electricity standards, as well as the improvement of the building’s thermal and acoustic performances have been two of our priorities in this operation.Save this picture!© Gerardo CustanceThe building is divided in two blocks (5 and 3 floors) connected in the ground and garden levels . At both ends of each block we can find the common spaces (restrooms and kitchens with the recovered dining rooms).

He faces a 15-year prison sentence if convicted.It demanded that all charges be dropped against the 32-year-old civil servant and said they violated both the Chinese constitution and the country’s international human rights commitments. It said he was being targeted as part of a broader government crackdown that showed once more the complete official intolerance of online freedom of expression. Government surveillance of e-mail messages and discussion forums to track down regime dissidents was unacceptable, it added. Li Zhi was arrested by state security police on 8 August at his home in Dazhou, in the southwestern province of Sichuan. The US-based organisation Human Rights in China said he had criticised the government in online forums and was thus regarded as being in touch with foreign-based opponents. Police seized his computer but provincial officials refused to say anything about the offending material.The Internet has become a major target of the regime’s repression since three harsh laws governing it were adopted in 2000. Thirty cyber-dissidents are in prison throughout the country for expressing their opinions online.
