Tags: NULL whatsapp US wholesalers saw their sales rise well ahead of expectations in November while inventories fell for the first time in more than a year, a government report has shown.The news is an unexpected boost to perceptions of the US recovery, offering a fresh sign of strengthening demand throughout the holiday shopping season.The Commerce Department said wholesale inventories fell 0.2 per cent to a seasonally adjusted $425.5bn (£274bn) after an October increase that was revised downward slightly to 1.7 per cent. Wholesale sales rose 1.9 per cent to a seasonally adjusted $370.1bn, well ahead of forecasts for a 1.5 per cent increase and the highest level since September 2008, when the financial crisis froze up credit markets.October wholesale sales were revised upward to a 2.6 per cent gain.The stronger than expected sales and the surprise dip in inventories implied that demand during the holiday shopping season may have been greater than retailers had anticipated. Producers may need to boost output to keep inventories at desired levels at a time when demand is strengthening, which should help support future economic growth.The inventory-to-sales ratio, which measures how long it would take to deplete stocks at the current sales pace, also fell in November to 1.15 months, from a downwardly revised 1.17 months in October.The fall in inventories was led by a 0.9 per cent drop in stocks of non-durable goods, including drugs, groceries and farm products. Inventories of computer products fell 1.8 per cent.Wholesale sales of computer products rose by 2.5 per cent, while sales of other electrical products were up 3.2 percent and hardware sales were up 5.5 per cent. whatsapp US wholesalers report sales jump Show Comments ▼ Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition Tuesday 11 January 2011 10:47 am More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org alison.lock

The Greggs (LSE: GRG) share price has been rising this year. It released a trading statement on Monday and investors have been snapping up the stock.I’m bullish on the stock and I said it was a FTSE 250 share I’d buy in May. Despite the Greggs share price being close to its all-time high, I’d still buy it now. The recent trading update simply confirmed my positive view of the company.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…Trading performanceGreggs has seen a strong sales recovery in the weeks following the easing of lockdown restrictions in the UK. It’s worth nothing that 2020 was mostly a redundant period for the food retailer. Most of its shops were closed last year and so it makes sense to compare its recent sales numbers with 2019 pre-pandemic figures.It appears that things are improving for Greggs. Like-for-like sales decreased by 13.5% in the 18 weeks to 8 May when compared to the same period in 2019. But the key item here is that sales only declined by 3.9% in the past eight weeks to 8 May.This means that after non-essential shops were allowed to open in April, Greggs saw a huge improvement in revenue. The company admitted that this in part reflects the “pent-up demand in retail which has boosted high street footfall”.So let me highlight the company’s performance in terms of total sales numbers. Greggs generated £352m in the 18 weeks to 8 May. This was an increase from £280m in the 2020 period and was just below the £373m booked in the same period in 2019.I’m encouraged by these figures and it seems that business is returning to pre-coronavirus levels. The UK economy is not fully open yet so I’d expect sales to pick up even further when this happens. This should give another boost to the Greggs share price.Store estateDuring the first 18 weeks of 2021, the food retailer opened 34 new shops, which includes 13 with its franchise partners. I think the main thing to note here is the location of its new stores.Greggs is focusing on places “where performance has proved to be most robust”. This includes retail parks, as well as roadside and petrol filling stations. I reckon these could continue to benefit the company as the UK continues to emerge from the pandemic.I’m also pleased that it’s closing underperforming shops. In the year so far, Greggs has closed 11 stores. It’s reassuring that costs are being well controlled. This should boost profitability in the long term.OutlookSales have recovered well and the board has said that “if restrictions continue to ease in line with current plans” then it expects “overall sales performance for the year to be stronger than previously anticipated”. Profit guidance is somewhat unclear. But “the board now believes that profits are likely to be materially higher than its previous expectation, and could be around 2019 levels in the absence of further restrictions.”This should act as a word of caution to investors like me. The Greggs share price is highly dependent on the the easing of UK government restrictions and no third wave. The stock is trading close to its all-time high. And so I’d expect the shares to fall in response to any Covid-19 setbacks.Despite this uncertainty, I reckon the Greggs share price could climb from its current level. Hence I’d buy the stock.

A country estate complete with tasting room has been built in the Twente countryside, designed by Reitsema & partners architects and consultants Eelerwoude. The project is part of a broader plan by a local entrepreneur to breathe new life into the landscape. The land in the planning area is divided into “rooms” separated by solid old “walls” of trees. In the new layout, each “room” is being given a slightly different shape and the visibility of the microrelief in the landscape is being enhanced. The buildings on the estate are characterised by their long, narrow floor plans and calmly designed roof surfaces, which fit into the landscape as if they had always been there.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ronald TillemanThe main building and its two annexes appear as long lines within the “rooms”. Heightening the effect, an avenue formed by a double line of trees marks out the driveway to the main house on one hand and the boundaries of the smaller green sub-rooms on the other . The house and its annexes lie along two axes and are strongly linked to the landscape by sight lines that respectively look toward the Regge river valley, toward a single tree, and straight through the house. The axis along which the house is positioned also creates a transition between the surrounding countryside and the property. The buildings are characterised by their slender floor plans and calmly designed roof surfaces, which appear almost as natural parts of the landscape.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanThe long volumes on the estate refer to the archetypal barns of old Twente, which are distinguished by their low roof gutters. Modern roof trusses and a generous use of glass bring this historical reference up to date. The space between the house and the two outbuildings serves as a yard, which can be used for various purposes, in accordance with local custom. The partially paved yard is surrounded largely by natural grasslands subject to different levels of management. The grounds to the west of the house are being maintained as meadows with extensive mowing. They are dry and herb-rich. Accentuating microrelief in such areas strengthens the wet-dry gradients, so flower-rich grassland can develop along with the dry, herb-rich type.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanThe house is characterised by a strong relationship between the interior and exterior. A long hallway runs along the front, linking the various functions. Large windows frame the landscape. The facilities are grouped near the entrance, and the living room and kitchen are separated by a veranda, which provides access to a patio that extends into the meadow. Vero Interieur designed the interior, which makes prominent use of natural materials. The bedrooms face south-east to take maximum advantage of the morning sunlight. The master bedroom looks out onto a solitary tree against a backdrop of hedges and rows of trees.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe house stands on a concrete plinth that serves to provide a walkway around the building. The facade, window frames and roof trusses have been constructed of pre-greyed wood to further strengthen the house’s relationship with the landscape. The facade affords a view through the house at various points while preserving the occupants’ privacy. The house was designed to fit the pre-greyed wood strips, adding to its refinement. The roof is made of patinated zinc with a high folded seam, so the relief can be seen at a distance. The absence of a gutter allows the design of the eaves to be kept minimal.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanTo meet strict sustainability objectives, the house has a timber frame construction with a high insulation value. An efficient installation, which includes a heat pump and a solar meadow tucked out of view, keeps energy use to a minimum.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanProject gallerySee allShow lessTheater Jacques Carrat / ateliers O-S architectesSelected ProjectsGRAFT’s Masterplan for Georgian Railway Headquarters Mimics the Natural Curve of a R…Architecture News Share Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officeReitsema & partners architectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsEnterThe NetherlandsPublished on November 14, 2018Cite: “Erve BE / Reitsema & partners architects” 14 Nov 2018.

Twitter Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch NewsLocal NewsAAA Limerick candidates take the plunge to fight water chargesBy Alan Jacques – March 21, 2014 937 Facebook Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Cian Prendiville of the Anti Austerity Alliance addresses a public meeting on water charges in Corbally.LIMERICK’s Anti Austerity Alliance local election candidates have launched a campaign against the imposition of water charges.The party, which recently opened new offices at Lock Quay, recently held a series of public meetings in locations across the city, in a first step towards organising a community-based campaign against what they deem as the “water charges rip-off”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up According to AAA candidate for Limerick East, Paul Keller, hundreds of people in the city signed a pledge to only vote for candidates who will fight water charges.Speaking at a public meeting in Castletroy, local AAA candidate Madelyn Portley commented, “We have beaten water charges before and we can beat them again.”“In the late 1980’s people such as AAA member Joe Harrington led a mass campaign of non payment which beat the water rates then. These meetings are the first step towards organising a community-based campaign along the same lines to beat them again,” she said.Meanwhile, AAA candidate for Limerick North, Cian Prendiville, told those who attended a meeting in Corbally, that water charges expose all the Government’s “propaganda” about recovery.“They say there’s recovery, yet they are planning more austerity taxes? They say we need ‘discipline in public finances’ but then throw millions in bonuses to Irish Water bosses and consultants. They claim to want to conserve water, but the state is the biggest waster of water, with 41 per cent of water leaking from the network. They should spend the money fixing the leaks, not imposing another bill which people simply do not have the money to pay,” Mr Prendiville concluded.
