WHAT THE OTHER PAPERS SAY THIS MORNING

first_img KCS-content Wednesday 22 September 2010 9:00 pm Share FINANCIAL TIMESSIEMENS PROMISES WORKERS JOBS FOR LIFESiemens’ German workers have struck a deal that will see their jobs secured indefinitely, in an arresting move that highlights how the financial crisis has triggered a fresh consensus between labour and management in corporate Germany. The engineering group said it had sealed an agreement with its works council and the IG Metall workers’ union that includes a pledge not to make any forced redundancies among its 128,000 German workforce.LOUIS DREYFUS EYES COMMODITY BUSINESS SELL-OFFSLouis Dreyfus, the French family-owned conglomerate that owns one of the world’s largest agricultural commodities trading houses, is exploring an initial public offering of some of its businesses, according to people close to the company.BANKS LOSE DOMINANCE IN LOANS TO COMPANIESThe banking crisis has led to a structural shift in the way UK companies fund themselves, with a greater share of funding coming from bond markets, according to a report from Standard & Poor’s. Bond markets have replaced banks to become the main provider of new debt financing on a net basis since the third quarter of 2008, according to the report, which is based on Bank of England data.AXIOM TELECOM PLANS DUBAI IPOAxiom Telecom, a UAE-based mobile phone retailer, plans to launch an initial public offering that could raise Dh200-300m ($54-$82m) for troubled conglomerate Dubai Holding , one of the retailer’s main shareholders. Bankers say that the Dubai-based distributor could offer a 30 per cent stake on Nasdaq Dubai.THE TIMESLEHMAN TO EXIT BANKRUPTCY EARLY NEXT YEARLehman Brothers could emerge from bankruptcy early next year, having returned more money than expected to its creditors, the Wall Street Bank’s liquidator said. In a statement to the US Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, Lehman Brothers Holdings said that it was optimistic that its reorganisation plan would be ready for the court’s confirmation in early 2011.ADOBE REDUCES ITS REVENUE EXPECTATIONSThe leading software manufacturer said while demand for its flagship Creative Suite 5 (CS5) software program, which includes Photoshop, continued to be positive, sales in Japan and to its US education customers could be weaker than expected. At least three brokerages cut their ratings on Adobe’s stock to “neutral”.The Daily TelegraphFORMER DISNEY SECRETARY PLEADS GUILTY TO INSIDER TRADINGBonnie J. Hoxie used her position as secretary to Disney’s head of communications to obtain price-sensitive information. It has all the ingredients for a film but not one that family-friendly Walt Disney would typically make. FBI agents posing as hedge fund traders; confidential information about a corporate giant; a young woman on the make from Los Angeles.SAINSBURY’S RELAUNCHES £1BN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE RANGESainsbury’s looks to take on rivals Waitrose and Marks & Spencer using products aimed at people who are eating in more. J Sainsbury has radically relaunched its £1bn range of upmarket food as it looks to capitalise on the trend for eating in and steal market share from rivals.WALL STREET JOURNALNOVARTIS’ MS DRUG WINS US APPROVALThe Food and Drug Administration approved for sale the US market’s first oral drug to treat multiple sclerosis—a disease typically treated with more cumbersome injections and infusions—in another sign of the improving picture for MS treatment. The drug, fingolimod from Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis, is one of a group of new oral therapies being developed for MS. BOJ OFFICIAL SUGGESTS MORE EASING AHEADA Bank of Japan policy board member said Wednesday that the central bank would take action if downside risks to the Japanese economy materialise, suggesting the BOJ is inching toward a looser monetary policy stance amid growing concerns over the health of the global economy. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com WHAT THE OTHER PAPERS SAY THIS MORNING center_img whatsapp More From Our Partners Biden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

‘Fundamentally, lottery is about dreams’

first_img Totally Gaming Academy trainer Wendy Lawrence on what people can expect from the Lottery Academy course, industry innovation and the expansion of digital lotteryiGaming Business: What aspects of the lottery industry is this course designed to cover and who would benefit from attending? Wendy Lawrence: The Lottery Academy is an introduction to the sector: think of it as a 101 “least you should know” guide aimed at those who want to boost their knowledge quickly. This could be people new to the industry, regulators, potential suppliers to the lottery industry, lottery entrepreneurs, or lottery professionals wanting to step outside of their own operation and explore new ideas within a like-minded group.We cover a lot of material including the history of lottery, the size of the global market, the operational models and key players, the alternative lottery market, with a deeper dive into key game types (draw/scratch/interactive), and channels to market (retail and digital).The course offers a world overview of the industry. Which jurisdictions currently hold the most promise for lottery, and why? I think that the potential of digital lottery sales in the US is very exciting at the moment. The US state lotteries have been very slow to get interactive and so far only a handful have made that step, but some ,such as Michigan, are starting to see great rewards for their innovation with interactive instant win games.The evidence is now there to show the upside of interactive, and to eliminate concerns about the impact on retail, so the potential for other state lotteries to introduce digital is huge. For more traditional lottery sales, South America and Africa are very underrepresented in the global figures, so there is massive potential for the expansion of tried and tested draw and scratchcard games.What has the growing popularity of alternative lottery models done for the vertical as a whole? It took a while but the regulated lottery market has finally woken up to the threat of alternative models such as the betting/insured companies. Ultimately, providing an identical player experience but cutting out the official ticket/lottery potentially undermines overall lottery revenues and returns to good causes.As such, countries such as the UK and Australia have legislated to prevent this style of betting on country-facing games. What intrigues me is that this has made companies such as Lottoland innovate further with new game development to replace those revenues, and this is to be welcomed.In addition, I think that companies offering services such as syndicates are bringing new ideas to a relatively static sector and should be congratulated. We need more innovation to shake up the complacency of the state/national monopolies. However, only time will tell as to whether these are commercial successes over the long term.What key takeaways can participants on the course hope to walk away with at the end of day two? My primary ambition is for all participants to identify new opportunities for their own business, whether that be in new game ideas, new routes to market or a better understanding of how to work within the lottery industry more efficiently. You’ve worked on both the operator and supplier side of the industry. Which side is doing the most to innovate lottery offerings at present? Without doubt the suppliers. Traditional lotteries are often state departments that move slowly and are risk averse. It is to the credit of suppliers, such as Neogames in the interactive instant win arena ,that they have invested significant time and money developing new ideas that are now bearing fruit. You have to be prepared to play a potentially long game if you want to get innovation into the lottery market.I am delighted that with the expansion of digital lottery there is a greater potential for new, smaller suppliers to get into the market in areas such as game development/apps and interactive lottery systems.What have been the most significant changes to the lottery market over the course of your career? I can think of three. Firstly, the cross-state and country collaboration that led to the introduction of multi-jurisdictional games such as Powerball and Euromillions. These redefined the notion of a jackpot and put the excitement back into draw games with life-changing possibilities. Secondly, the expansion of lottery into digital, which has enabled lotteries to meet player demand for convenience, expand the player base and drive incremental sales, even if its full potential for new game experiences is not yet being met. And finally, the betting/insured alternative sector has presented competition and challenge that has shaken up the rather cosy and safe market.The course includes a session on defining lottery. How does lottery differ from other gaming verticals? Fundamentally lottery is about dreams. A mass market proposition that encourages many to have a small flutter for a life-changing sum, whilst contributing to society. Lottery has a unique place in the market as players do not consider themselves to be gambling, and many would not consider playing other gaming verticals.As such, there is a far greater obligation on lottery operators to act responsibly and respect their monopoly position.What do you expect to be the defining features of the lottery industry over the next 18 months? I am not expecting, but I am hoping to see true game innovation in digital which will, again, redefine lottery for the next generation.

GVC strikes deal to acquire Portugual’s Bet.pt

first_img GVC strikes deal to acquire Portugual’s Bet.pt Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Strategy Online casino H1 results 2020 Online sports betting Sportsbook M&A M&A SRIJ’s figures revealed that in 2020, Portugal set a new record for H1 gross gaming revenue (GGR) during the nation’s period of lockdown, with operators bringing in revenue of €138.9m, up 44.2% year-on-year. Regions: Portugal Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The market is growing rapidly, with revenue expected to more than double to around €450m (£408m/$529m) by 2023. As of 30 June, 10 licensees were permitted to offer sports in Portugal, and 13 were licensed to offer casino games, an increase from 8 and 10 respectively at this point in 2019. GVC chief executive Shay Segev added: “This acquisition is consistent with our strategy of expanding into new markets that are either regulated or regulating, in order to support our international growth ambitions.” GVC described Bet.pt as one of the leading online operators in Portugal, with a particular strength in sports betting. “By leveraging our technology, extensive portfolio of gaming content, marketing and CRM capabilities, as well as growing the sports offering, we see plenty of opportunities to grow its profitability and market position,” GVC said.center_img Ladbrokes and Coral owner, GVC Group, has agreed to acquire Portuguese-facing online operator, Bet.pt with a view to expanding its business across the Iberian Peninsula. Despite an international shutdown of international sport for several months, sports betting revenue increased by 15.9% compared to the same period in 2019 to €55.2m, while online casino revenue rose dramatically by 74.1%, to €83.7m. This was driven by online growth, with a 26% increase in online betting and gaming net revenue offsetting a 5% decline in British retail’s contribution. News of the deal came alongside a trading update for GVC’s third quarter performance, in which the operator revealed revenue for the three months to 30 September grew 12% year-on-year. Bet.pt launched in Portugal in 2016, through a partnership with sportsbook platform provider, SBTech, after securing its licence from local gambling regulator, SRIJ.

The gold price could rise to $2k in 2020 say analysts, but does it beat shares?center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Gold had a great year in 2019. After beginning the year near the $1,280 per ounce level, the price ended it at approximately $1,520 per ounce, which represents a gain of nearly 20%. That’s a higher return than the FTSE 100 generated for the year.Can the gold price keep rising in 2020? Some analysts believe it can. In fact, a number of experts believe it could hit $2,000. 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…$2,000 this year?One expert who is bullish on gold is Fawad Razaqzada, technical analyst at City Index. Razaqzada believes that gold’s technical outlook remains strong given the breakout last summer. He expects looser monetary policy this year to push bond yields further into negative territory, boosting the appeal of gold, and says that a stock market correction could see gold’s price surge higher.“If US stocks were to correct themselves in 2020, then this surely could lead to elevated levels of safe-haven demand for gold,” said Razaqzada. “As the US equity market bubble finally bursts, safe-haven demand could nudge gold past its 2011 peak of $1,920, before tagging the $2,000 psychological hurdle.”And Razaqzada isn’t the only analyst who believes gold can reach $2,000 in 2020. For example, last year, David Roche, president and global strategist at London-based research firm Independent Strategy, told CNBC that gold could hit $2,000 this year on the back of “vilification of fiat currencies by central bankers.”Meanwhile, a number of Wall Street analysts see it hitting $2,000 in the next few years. For example, Citigroup’s Aakash Doshi recently said that gold could potentially hit $2,000 an ounce “at some point in the next year or two,” while Daniel Ghali of TD Securities said: “Over the coming years as the likelihood of the unconventional policy becomes more of a reality, I could see a case for gold at $2,000.”Time to load up on gold?Should we all load up on gold, given these gold price forecasts that suggest it could have upside of more than 25%?My view is that having a little bit of exposure to gold, as a diversification play, could be a sensible move. If economic uncertainty increases and stock markets take a hit, gold could potentially provide an element of portfolio protection.That said, I wouldn’t want to have too much exposure (more than 5% of my portfolio) to the precious metal. The reason I say this is that gold generates no earnings or income. As Warren Buffett says, gold “doesn’t do anything but sit there and look at you.” To my mind, a diversified portfolio of high-quality stocks that has the potential to generate both capital gains and dividends is a much safer long-term play than an investment in gold. One huge advantage that stocks have over gold is that they can provide passive income through dividends. Build up a solid portfolio of high-quality dividend-paying businesses, and you could potentially retire on your dividends (tax-free if your stocks are in an ISA), without having to worry about selling a proportion of your investments every time you require income. Combine this advantage with the long-term track record of the stock market (since 1984, the FTSE 100 has delivered a return of around 9% per year vs around 4% per year for gold) and you have an asset class that is far superior to gold, in my view. All things considered, compared to gold, I see stocks as a far better long-term investment.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Even before the pandemic struck, FTSE 100 banking giant Lloyds Bank (LSE: LLOY) was already facing a share price challenge. After finishing 2019 with a bang, the Lloyds Bank share price started sliding downwards at the start of 2020. When coronavirus struck, matters got even worse, like for many other stocks. The situation improved only in November, when the broad-based stock market rally started. By the end of the month, the Lloyds Bank share price had risen more than 27% from October end. It continues to inch up even now and, as I write, it’s at 38p.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…Why 50p?At these levels, it’s a hair’s breadth away from 40p; but to my mind, the really interesting question is — can it go up to 50p? The reason it’s interesting is that it was above 50p pre-pandemic. So if it now goes back up, it would have erased all investing losses from the coronavirus. I reckon that would be a huge sigh of relief for investors that have been holding on to Lloyds Bank for a while.Why LLOY can rise higher than 50pI think it’s very possible that it can happen. Bullish investors are looking for cheap shares. At least from the looks of it, the Lloyds Bank share price is quite low. With the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine expected to arrive in the UK shortly, the bull run will quite likely continue to drive up its share price. It’s also hoped that the Bank of England will give a go ahead to banks and insurers to start paying out dividends before the year ends. That will also elevate the Lloyds Bank share price, which plunged in April after it withdrew dividends. Its high dividend yield was a big draw for income investors, despite its indifferent share price trend. Improvement in economic activity in 2021 should also bode well for banks.The next big question for LLOYSo if you are a short-term investor, then Lloyds Bank may be just your stock pick. Its share price may well rise above 50p. The next question though is: Can it stay above 50p?My wariness of LLOY has always been about its long-term prospects. And that persists. Consider its earnings ratio at 38 times. For a company that was seeing some tough times recently, it appears quite high to me. The FTSE 100 consumer goods giant Unilever, whose performance has been far more consistent, has a ratio of 18, for instance. Further, economic recovery could be hampered by Brexit disruptions. Lloyds could be hit harder than other banks, being more focused on the UK. Even otherwise, the economic recovery could have a muted impact on LLOY. Its past share price trends aren’t inspiring either. The takeawayIn sum, I see a short-term case for Lloyds Bank right now. But I think that the share price rally could be followed by a fall to more sustainable share price levels. last_img read more

Rugby World Cup – Earthquakes

first_img Rugby World Cup Fixtures 2023 Rugby World Cup – EarthquakesThe Rugby World Cup is currently taking place in Japan to much pomp and ceremony. Several matches have been played but there are plenty more to go at 12 locations from Hokkaido in the North to the subtropical isle of Okinawa in the South.Organisers have said over 400,000 travelling fans are expected to travel and if they’ve done their homework, they’ll be well-versed that Japan is located at the junction of four tectonic plates and riddled with faults that make earthquakes a daily occurrence for the island’s 127m inhabitants.In fact, there have been 13 earthquakes measuring over 5.0 on the Richter Scale since the mega-earthquake of Tohoku of 2011, but such is Japan’s expenditure on building infrastructure that the death toll has been relatively modest, with 108 people losing their lives.In 2011, at 9.01 on the Richter scale, the Great East Japan Earthquake was one of the five largest earthquakes ever recorded. Nearly 20,000 people lost their lives, and Australia’s World Cup finalist Scott Fardy, playing the country at the time, took part in the rescue effort.Indeed, given its precarious location, Japan equates for 20 per cent of the world’s earthquakes with over 1,000 tremors-a-day registered on Japan’s Shindo scale but that shouldn’t put rugby fans off heading there for the Rugby World Cup. Far from it but they should be prepared for any eventuality.

So what should fans expect? In Japan it’s routine to house a basic survival kit with a flashlight, radio, first aid kit and enough food and water to last a few days. Wherever fans are staying it’s also sensible to find out where the designated evacuation area lies in the neighbourhood. If you are caught in an earthquake, the advice is to place yourself under a doorway or table, watch out for breaking glass and avoid running outside. If it’s been a serious quake, it’s prudent to turn off stoves, ovens and the building’s main gas supply.Depending where you’re staying, the area can be at risk from a Tsunami in the coastal areas or landslides in mountainous climes. September and October, when the tournament is in full swing, is prone to tropical cyclones and 12 months ago an earthquake measuring 6.7 hit Hokkaido near the city of Sapporo where England will be based later this year, killing 40 people. World Rugby hopes Lady Luck is on its side.The organisers are, understandably, putting in contingency plans for the loss of team hotels, transport hubs and training grounds and the possibility of moving fixtures but they are confident Japan will be able to cope with any natural disaster in the safest way possible to avoid disruption.Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.

British & Irish Lions survive late scare to beat the Cheetahs

first_imgSunday Jun 7, 2009 British & Irish Lions survive late scare to beat the Cheetahs The Freestate Cheetahs came within inches of a famous upset victory over the British & Irish Lions on Saturday in Bloemfontein, as the relieved tourists came out on top 26-24.The Cheetahs, who finished bottom of the table in the Super 14, went behind early but came back strong as they sniffed a famous scalp. Louis Strydoms drop kick minutes from time sailed inches wide, as did three penalty kicks from starting flyhalf Jacques Louis Potgieter.The Lions, with a changed side from that who won 74-10 over the Golden Lions in midweek, have now won all three fixtures on tour so far. They will be concerned with the ease in which the Cheetahs came back into the match though.James Hook knocked over four penalties and two conversions, but the side lacked the cohesion and deadly finishing that we saw during the week against their namesakes.The Lions led 20-0 after twenty minutes, but somehow got themselves into a position to lose the match. Many questions need to be answered, particularly around the breakdown area, where Heinrich Brussouw had another excellent game.In the end, on the scoreboard, it was job done, with the coach and management possibly getting a better idea of who theyll want lining up against the Boks in the first Test, but the fact that they werent able to kill off the game will be a concern.“I was pleased with the victory, but considering the position we were in after 20 minutes we should have done better,” admitted captain Paul OConnell.“They did well at the breakdowns and turned over quite a bit of our ball. While we started well enough, we went to sleep at times and that allowed the Cheetahs to get the better of us.”The Lions face the powerful Sharks next, in Durban on Wednesday. Despite them missing many Springbok players, they will field a strong side and should be another stern challenge for the men wearing the famous red jersey.

Friday Funnies – Jean-Baptiste Elissalde the Matador

first_imgFriday Feb 12, 2010 Friday Funnies – Jean-Baptiste Elissalde the Matador As a hectic weekend of rugby approaches, here’s a quick clip of a pretty funny piece of play that was requested by a regular who spotted it during a match a few weeks back. The match in question was Sale against Toulouse in the Heineken Cup, and as you can see here, scrumhalf Jean Baptiste Elissalde did his very best to avoid making the tackle on massive Sale number eight Sisa Koyamaibole. Koyamaibole is about 6ft3 and 120kg’s, so the far smaller Elissalde, close to 50kg’s lighter, probably did a wise thing as he effectively ushered the big Fijian through, while trying his best to make it look like a tackle of course. If you’re a little guy out there and see a brute of a forward charging directly towards you, perfect this technique and you’ll live long in the game, as has the 32 year old Elissalde.Time: 0:57 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 30 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The penthouse apartment is located in a harbor-side eastern suburb of Sydney within the Easthaven building originally designed by Ancher Mortlock & Murray in the late 50’s, with views of Sydney Harbor to the north and Double Bay and Point Piper to the east. The project involved the complete internal reconfiguration and refurbishment of a top floor penthouse to improve the kitchen and bathroom spaces, amenity to the living areas and terrace, lighting, storage and physical and visual connections to the terrace.Save this picture!Floor PlanRecommended ProductsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Patio FurnitureSwisspearlFiber Cement Garden PlantersWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaCommencing at the entry and culminating at the northern terrace, a long joinery device is employed as a means of unifying disparate wall alignments within the public domain, ultimately serving as the key threshold between the public and private areas of the plan arrangement. Its visually planar quality is punctuated by pivoting panels, recesses and apertures that lead to a reconfigured private domain of rooms, new enlarged bathroom and new kitchen respectively. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanLarge sliding and pivoting panels flexibly enable the second guest room to expand into and form part of the public area, gaining access to light and ventilation, thereby visually and physically enlarging the public area into the depth of the plan. A new study and sitting area are inserted near the entry, permitting access to alternative contemplative views of the harbor which can be visually delineated from the main living areas by a retractable curtain to flexibly contract or enlarge the living areas as required. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanA new frameless corner window and glass sliding door expand the new kitchen into the terrace, improving solar access, ventilation and access to principal views of the harbor, while vastly improving the function and relationship of this room to the terrace. A new steel framed pergola with integrated adjustable louvres and lighting extends along the entire length of the northern face, providing protection in this exposed orientation for all north facing glazing, while improving the amenity and function of the adjoining terrace for enjoyment in all seasons. An external mirrored wall enables reflected views of the harbor from within the main bedroom, while a timber lined bbq area and low built-in benches with outdoor storage at the western end of the terrace provide a sheltered space for alternative enjoyment of views and reflection.
