German and French GDP growth lower than expected

By

first_img John Dunne whatsapp Tags: NULL German and French GDP growth lower than expected Tuesday 15 February 2011 4:09 am The French and German economies expanded by less than expected in the fourth quarter, data showed on Tuesday, suggesting the euro zone may not have accelerated out of a third-quarter slowdown.Economists have forecast that the euro zone economy as a whole grew by 0.4 per cent in the final three months of 2010, after 0.3 per cent in the third quarter and 1.0 per cent in the second. The French and German economies make up almost 50 per cent of the single currency bloc.German gross domestic product increased by 0.4 per cent, against expectations of a 0.5 per cent rise and a deceleration from the 0.7 per cent growth registered in the third quarter.In France, the expansion was 0.3 per cent, half the expected increase, and the same level as in the July-September period. Economists had been expecting growth in the euro zone’s second largest economy to return to the 0.6 per cent in the second quarter.French Economy Minister Christine Lagarde said she hoped for stronger growth in the first quarter and maintained the government’s forecast for expansion this year of two per cent.Snow and icy weather may have played a role. Construction in particular was hit hard and can be expected to rebound.“This won’t last, it’s not the end of the recovery. The winter weather slowed things down and we should see a higher rate of growth in the first quarter,” Commerzbank economist Christoph Weil said, referring to the German economy.Growth in the third quarter tempered after a very strong April-June period – when the German economy powered ahead by 2.2 per cent quarter-on-quarter.French analysts were less upbeat about their economy despite Lagarde’s upbeat prognosis.“This fairly mediocre figure confirms France is on a path of sluggish growth,” said Alexander Law, chief economist at Xerfi“At the end of the day, if we take out technical and one-off elements, France is on an annualised growth rhythm of 1.2 per cent.” Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share More From Our Partners Fort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com last_img read more

Built to be a writer’s retreat in the middle of nature, the building was designed under the symbol of the cave. The symbolism of the cave is very broad and diverse.

At first glance, it appears to be a vintage specialist store with wooden cabinets displaying curios from around the world. However, the  project uses digital technology to enable visitors to interact with around 100 individual stories from across the world as well as giving them an opportunity to sponsor a child or make a one-off donation.The kiosk features an interactive mirror where a young girl suddenly appears, activated by movement and gestures, and encourages shoppers to reach out and connect with her world. Shoppers are invited on to the Story Shop kiosk to discover more about children’s life stories, and explore drawers and related artefacts, as well as find out how to sponsor a child or donate to the migrant crisis appeal with the option to “tap to donate” via contactless card or Apple pay built into the store to allow people to give directly to the charity’s crisis support.  98 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis15 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis15 [youtube height=”450″width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3x_VQzxZKU[/youtube]  97 total views,  1 views today The project was created in partnership with The Yard Creative.

Since it began in 1994, over £890m has been raised to help fund research into all types of cancer.In their place for this year, the charity has launched a new campaign, Race for Life at Home. Race for Life at Home encourages people to get involved in their own way, donating to the cause or fundraising where they can to help raise money for research. Supporters could choose to do a 5k or 10k run or walk or embark on a month-long fitness challenge. Entry is free and participants are encouraged to join the Race for Life Facebook community and share their challenges and activities on their own social media channels using the hashtag #RaceForLifeAtHome.Cancer Research UK plans to restart Race for Life in 2021.Michelle Mitchell, Chief Executive at Cancer Research UK, said:“Covid-19 has unfortunately impacted our plans and we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our Race for Life events. We had hoped to postpone till autumn, but this is no longer possible as we can’t be certain when mass participation events can safely take place again. We’re sorry to our participants and volunteers who hoped to join in this year, but we hope they will understand that safety must be priority.“Race for Life events will return in 2021, but we still need help today to raise money for life-saving research. We expect to see a 20 – 25% decline in fundraising income this financial year and unfortunately we’ve already been forced to make £44m cuts to our research spend. There can be no doubt that this global pandemic is causing huge strain on charities and Cancer Research UK is being hit hard.”While many charities have cancelled events due to the pandemic, others, such as the London Marathon, rescheduled for 4 October, have been rescheduled for later in the year. However, with time ticking on, Cancer Research UK is not alone in its decision. Cardiff Half Marathon for one had also been rescheduled for 4 October, and this too will now not take place until next year.

Students raise voices at annual poetry slam

(Nicole Hawkins/TCU 360)Students presented poems about President Trump, fake news, the border wall, depression and suicide among other topics. “They’re so young but they have a lot to say,” said Carolyn West, the founder of Thank You Darlin’. “And we need to listen.”Strategic communication professor Broxon Sears’ capstone class partnered with the Thank You Darlin’ Foundation to help organize and run the event, as well as assist with public relations and advertising for the poetry slam. This year’s poetry slam was the first one to be held at TCU. The event gives students the chance to be confident in their education and serves as an outlet to do something they’re passionate about, Lindy Lamme, a strategic communication student, said, “It gives them a way to show their voice,” said student and public relations manager for the poetry slam, Melanie Webb. A capstone strategic communications class in the Bob Schieffer College of Communication partnered with the Thank You Darlin’ foundation for this year’s event.(Photo courtesy Thank You Darlin’ Foundation)West founded Thank You Darlin’ after her mother passed away, hoping to impact lives as her mother did. The effectiveness of the poetry slam can be seen in the success of the students who participate, West said.Brandon Sanders, a senior at Marine Creek Collegiate High School in Fort Worth, said he has been participating in the poetry slam since he was in third grade. During Saturday’s event, he was the only student to receive a perfect score for the solo performance of his original poem.The event helps students to not only express themselves, but also excel academically, West said. This idea proves true for Sanders, who will be attending the University of Houston in the fall.
