Zoopla reports a post-election housing boost

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ PROPERTY website Zoopla said that the Conservatives’ success at the General Election is helping the housing market, as the company announced a rise in profits yesterday. Zoopla saw adjusted core earnings rise 14 per cent to £21.4m in the six months to the end of March.The company’s chief executive Alex Chesterman said that the Tories’ surprise majority had removed uncertainty from the housing market in recent weeks. The market had displayed slowdown over worries that a Labour government would introduce an annual tax on high-value properties and eliminate “non-dom” status for certain homeowners Chesterman said the Tory win prompted increased consumer traffic to the Zoopla website and a jump in the number of properties coming to market.But Chesterman added that despite a post-election bounce, Zoopla has been losing some of its market share to rival websites over the last six months. One key player, OnTheMarket, only allows its members to list on one other website. With many OnTheMarket users opting for Rightmove as their second choice, Zoopla has lost 23 per cent of its agents, compared to the same period last year. Chesterman said, however, that his firm was winning back former agents, and that he expected to see net gains into the summer.The share price fell 2.9 per cent yesterday to 223p, just above its market float price of 220p last autumn.

Laptops, cars and jewellery: The 10 things we can’t live without in 2015

first_imgMonday 8 June 2015 12:05 am whatsapp Laptops, cars and jewellery: The 10 things we can’t live without in 2015 Gadgets and sentimental jewellery, these are the things we just can’t live without in the modern age – a far cry from what mattered most to Brits 125 years ago.The laptop is our most crucial item today while the humble sewing machine was the essential thing we couldn’t do without back in the 1890s TVs and iPhone are also a must-have, according to research by UIA insurance which asked 5,000 people what they couldn’t live without.Wedding bands, engagement rings and watches also came in the top 10 of items we treasure while 45 per cent of people were not willing to give up the modern luxury of a daily shower.In Victorian times, items such as a teapot, piano and bike would have been the items of the day, says historian Ruth Goodman.[infographic id=”150″][infographic id=”151″]“People past and present have often treasured most those things which they have had to go the extra mile for,” said Goodman.“In the Victorian era, the sewing machine was an expensive bit of machinery but it could half a woman’s sewing workload and give a whole new class of people a chance to indulge in fashion. It soon came to be seen as a necessity amongst the middle classes – hard indeed to live without once you had been lucky enough to own one.”While we may be more tech-focused than ever before, the wedding band and the watch were as important then as they are now – though that’s more likely to be a smartwatch these days.Despite the importance of such high-value items as devices and cars, nearly half of people don’t insure them, the research found.

N. Korean sailors fully aware of and anxious about military strength…

first_img By Choi Song Min – 2015.09.22 5:04pm RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Amid North Korea’s declaration of a‘quasi-state of war’ last month during heightened tensions on the KoreanPeninsula, Pyongyang deployed 20 Landing Craft Air Cushions [LCACs] near the border with South Korea. However, testimony has emerged from those close to the issue that the overwhelming noise of the engines and the vulnerability of the outdated rubber cushions indicate that employing them in an actual military operation would provedifficult and largely ineffective.“When a sudden order to initiate aquasi-state of war came down, the atmosphere on the frontline [inter-Koreanborder] became quite tense,” a military source from South Pyongan Provincereported to Daily NK on September 17th. “When high-level talks between theNorth and South occurred and the tensions began to lessen just in time, thesoldiers breathed a collective sigh of relief.” An additional source in North PyonganProvince corroborated this news. “It is not just that the North Koreanservicemen are well aware of their own [lack of] capabilities, it is also becausethey know something of the military strength of the combined American and SouthKorean forces,” the source explained, adding that the navy personnel aboard the20 LCACsthat were deployed off the west coast on August 23rd referred to themselvesprivately as “the punching bag forces.” The engine noise of the landing cushions was so loud it could be heard from roughly 4 km away, he added, noting, “The noise emitted by these LCACs engines,which must exert a lot of power, is extremely distinctive. These engines used areknown as “Ra-15”, and are a remodeled version of the M400 engines that wereused by the former Soviet Union’s fleet. The remodeled engines, well-known for the deafening sound they emit, are produced inthe munitions factory in Rason and installed on North Korea’s high-speed fleet.”However, the source said that the rubber can be easily punctured by multiple bullets and/or shrapnel, likening such a scenario to one wherein “a car collapses from a punctured tire.” “When these North Korean LCACs are struck by a few machine gunbullets, they deflate immediately–right where they are,” he explained.As far as the reactions of the servicemen , our source told us, “The authorities may have deployed LCACS and submarinesoff the west coast but everyone said it was an act of sheer bravado with zerochance of success. Naval personnel aboard the deployed LCACs sarcastically remarked, ‘This is going to make us cannon fodder.’”Those aboard the submarines expressed just as much anxiety as those on the LCACs, according to the source, who said they “constantly wonder exactly how long these outdated vessels will manage to stayafloat.” They also fear being trapped like “rats in a hole” in the nets of themyriad fishing nurseries maintained by South Korean fisherman. Incidentally, this fear is not entirelyunfounded. South Korea routinely utilized high seas driftnets beforebanning them in 2003; in 1998, prior to the law change, a North Koreansubmarine was caught in one of the South’s driftnets. Much of what provides North Korean soldierswith a basis for comparison regarding their inferior military strengthoriginates in a required course for all conscripts titled, “Enemy Forces,”wherein young soldiers are exposed to the military capabilities of theirbrethren below the border and of their American allies. “Once soldiers participate in this course,they begin to compare their own weapons to those of the South Korean andAmerican forces, and immediately realize what a huge discrepancy they are upagainst,” the source concluded.*The content of this article was broadcast to the North Korean people via Unification Media Group.
