London house prices to fall three per cent after a no-deal Brexit

first_img House prices in London could dip three per cent after a no deal Brexit, new research has found.In the event of Britain and the EU failing to reach an agreement, housing prices in London could fall three per cent in the six months following the 29 March deadline, according to a Reuters poll out today. Alyana Vera However, if an agreement is reached, property prices are expected to rise 0.5 per cent in the capital and 1.5 per cent nationally.The poll, which was conducted between 13-20 February, supports previous reports that a no deal Brexit could impact an already cooling housing market.Peter Dixon, a global financial economist at Commerzbank, told Reuters: “Prices have clearly come off the boil of late but on the assumption that the UK does not leave the EU without a deal, there is scope for the resumption of a modest upward trend.”A poll of 25 market watchers found that London homes will drop 2 per cent this year, but expect the market to rebound with a rise of 0.5 per cent and 2.5 per cent in the next two years, respectively.Read more: UK house price growth slows as affordability improves whatsapp London house prices to fall three per cent after a no-deal Brexit Tags: Brexit whatsapp Read more: UK house prices 2019: What experts say will happen after BrexitA drop in housing prices would be coupled with a weak pound following a no-deal Brexit, according to Reuters, making homes in the capital more attractive to foreign investors.“There will be a palpable shock to the UK economy in terms of GDP, inflation, job creation, etc,” Tony Williams of Building Value told Reuters.Williams said that this would affect the housing market in the UK, with the poll predicting that a no deal Brexit will result in a one per cent drop nationally in house prices.“This will spill over dramatically to the residential market, with London bearing the brunt given the international catchment of prospective buyers,” Williams said. National house prices were predicted to rise in the next three years, starting at 1.5 per cent this year, 1.8 per cent for the next, and then 2.3 per cent in 2021.Russell Quirk, an online estate agent told Reuters: “The fundamentals of the UK housing market remain as they are: lack of supply; a growing population; cheap money – a Brexit of any flavour will not dent those fundamentals.” More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.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.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com Share Friday 22 February 2019 5:02 pmlast_img read more

Sitka landslide is ‘déjà vu’ for battalion chief

first_imgEnvironment | Public Safety | SoutheastSitka landslide is ‘déjà vu’ for battalion chiefAugust 26, 2015 by Robert Woolsey, KCAW Share:Seattle battalion chief Thomas Richardson. Despite his long hours on the Oso event he says he’s no expert. “No one is prepared for this kind of slide.” (Photo by Robert Woolsey/KCAW)Among all the expertise imported by Sitka to aid in the recovery operation at the Kramer Avenue slide, one man finds this disaster hits very close to home.Thomas Richardson is a battalion chief with the Seattle Fire Department. Seventeen months ago he stood over a similar scene in Oso, Washington.“Yeah, it’s similar. Déjà vu, in fact. Both the techniques that they’re using and the conditions that they’re encountering are almost identical to what we had. Logs, broken trees, a mudflow in the middle with near quicksand-like conditions. And the techniques to do the searches are very similar to what we’ve done.”The Oso slide was much larger. It covered about a square mile. In all, 43 people lost their lives in that event in March 2014.Richardson does not consider himself an expert in landslide recovery. He says the Seattle Fire Department just applied the skills they had to a difficult situation. And Sitka is doing the same thing.“Most people don’t have a lot of experience. We didn’t have any experience responding to landslides. We’ve had our usual small slides in the city that we’ve responded to in the past, that did damage to structures but didn’t entrap any people. Oso was by far the biggest one that any of us had ever encountered.”Richardson will be in Sitka for two days while the clearing work continues. He’ll be observing the use of a special pump being flown in by the Coast Guard that is used for the removal of mud.Share this story:last_img read more

Corpses Buried and Found at Hillside

first_img News Corpses Buried and Found at Hillside Once, we children were clearing the land for farmland expansion. Bulldozers removed the bushes and clear the land for us to till. Shortly after the bulldozers began to move, I began to feel like vomiting. Other children began to complain, “What’s that smell! Where is this nasty smell coming from!” “I can’t breathe,” another child said. We looked at the bulldozers and were so shocked to see so many corpses uncovered by the bulldozers. The corpses were partly fresh and rotten, arms and legs broken and skulls crushed! The bulldozers stopped moving. We were so used to death but this was so shocking. I vomited. The other children all ran away. I also wanted to follow my friends but I could not move. I was very lucky not to faint.About two hours later, a bunch of prisoners arrived, dug a big hole at the foot of the mountain and dumped the corpses, some fifty of them, into the hole. The prisoners also closed their noses while working. One of them fainted. Then they covered the hole. The land was tilled and corn was planted.Since then, no one wanted to work in that field. The security officers needed to use force to bring the prisoners here for work. One of the female prisoners was forced to work here one day and, as feared, came upon some human bones. She ran away from the work.Strangely, the corn crop from the field that autumn was very large, considerably larger than the other fields.

Tumultuous galaxy mergers better at switching on black holes

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail What does it take to switch on a supermassive black hole? A new study by researchers at CU Boulder explores that question, finding that violent crashes may be more effective at activating black holes than more peaceful mergers. When two galaxies collide, the supermassive black holes that sit at their centers also smash together. But before they do, those galaxies often flicker on, absorbing huge quantities of gas and dust and producing a fireworks-like display called an Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN), a type of quasar. But not all mergers are created equal. In some such marriages, only one black hole becomes active, while in others, both do.The research team led by CU Boulder’s Scott Barrows suggests a possible explanation: Single activations seem to occur more often in mergers in which the galaxies are mismatched—or when one galaxy is huge and the other puny. The reason may come down to the violence of the physics.  Images recorded by the Hubble Space Telescope of two pairs of galaxies, called J1234+4751 (top) and J1114+4036 (bottom), in the process of crashing together. (Credit: Hubble Space Telescope/Scott Barrows)When lopsided galaxies join, “the merger is less violent, and that leads to less gas and dust falling onto the black holes,” said Barrows, a postdoctoral research associate in the Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy (CASA). “And the less material you have falling onto the black holes, the less likely you are to have two of them become AGNs.”The researchers presented their findings today at a press briefing at the 232nd meeting of the American Astronomical Society, which runs from June 3-7 in Denver, Colorado. Julie Comerford, an assistant professor in CU Boulder’s Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences and a keynote speaker at the conference, was a co-author on the study along with Jenny Greene of Princeton University.Barrows explained that scientists have long wondered why supermassive black holes, which exist in the centers of almost all galaxies, tend to look like their hosts. Big galaxies hold big black holes and small galaxies host more petite ones. “A big question in modern astronomy is what are the primary routes by which these black holes grow,” Barrows said. “One idea is that galactic mergers play a major role.”When galaxies join together and combine their stars, their supermassive black holes also grow, consuming huge quantities of galactic material and spitting out hot jets of gas that can extend hundreds of thousands of lightyears into space. Such AGNs are among the brightest phenomena in the universe. To examine these displays, Barrows and his colleagues developed a novel method for spotting merging galaxies. Previously, he said, scientists mostly went by sight.“Somebody looks at a telescope image and says, ‘oh, that’s a merger,’” Barrows said.His team, however, used data collected by the Chandra X-ray Observatory to systematically scan the night sky for the signatures of AGNs. They spotted mergers in progress by looking for “offset galaxies,” or galaxies with a single AGN that sits away from the center of the galaxy. Such a lack of symmetry suggests that a second supermassive black hole, which hasn’t been turned on, might be hiding nearby. To figure out why a merger might switch on just one of these supermassive black holes, Barrows and his colleagues assembled a sample of 10 offset galaxies. They then compared that sample to galaxies with a pair of AGNs. The results were stark: Nine out of the 10 galaxies with only one active black hole came from lopsided mergers, or cases in which one galaxy was more than four times the size of the other. Two-thirds of the galaxies with two active black holes, in contrast, were experiencing clashes among near equals.Barrows explained that when galaxies of roughly equal size meet, their black holes exert tremendous gravitational forces on each other. Those forces, in turn, send clouds of gas and dust raining onto the black holes. “It’s these torques that extract energy from the gas and dust, allowing it to fall into the nucleus of the black hole,” Barrows said. In mismatched mergers, “you simply have smaller forces exerted on the gas and dust in each galaxy.” The team didn’t find any rhyme or reason to which black hole activated during a mismatched merger. In some cases, Barrows said, it was the bigger black hole. In other cases, the smaller one. Next up, he and his colleagues will focus on how the smashing together of two black holes affects the galaxies themselves, including how they create and destroy stars.

Burning up: CU researchers use unique tunnel to study wildfires

first_imgPublished: Sept. 11, 2019 • By Josh Rhoten Researchers at CU Boulder are using computations and experiments in a new sloping wind tunnel to study how wildfires form and move across different landscapes; applying cutting edge research tools to understand an old problem that Colorado has become quite familiar with in recent years.Associate Professor Peter Hamlington leads the project. His group develops computational tools which allow researchers to understand how fire reacts at a variety of scales. Associate Professor Greg Rieker’s team, including PhD student Amanda Makowiecki, developed and built the “WindCline” – a wind tunnel that can tilt up and down. They did so in consultation with Aerospace Engineering Assistant Professor John Farnsworth. The tunnel allows researchers to study how various fuels react to different conditions and allows for the study of emissions in a controlled setting using laser sensors.Rieker and Hamlington said wind tunnels are traditionally used in studies of airplanes and car aerodynamics, but this sloping wind tunnel designed for wildfire research is the only of its kind anywhere in the world. It enables the CU College of Engineering and Applied Science team to reliably reproduce natural wildfire conditions in a way that has not previously been possible. “Wildfires contribute to property damage and environmental impacts from emissions to possible groundwater contamination,” said Hamlington, who is part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. “The tools we are bringing to bear on this problem are new for any type of combustion research, so we are taking the latest and greatest from one field and applying it to another. We are unique in the field of combustion research, so we are unique in the field of wildfire research.”Wildfires are increasingly a problem in western states. In 2018 alone, Colorado saw 1,328 fires accounting for 475,800 acres burned according to the Insurance Information Institute. Researchers are being asked to help understand these events from many perspectives.The WindCline was originally constructed through a research award from the Department of Defense’s Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program to examine the environmental impacts of prescribed burns on DoD property. Hamlington said the $1.1 million project uses adaptive mesh simulations and frequency comb laser diagnostics to give detailed info about many aspects of the fire. “Ultimately, the proposed research will bring together two cutting-edge technologies, simulations using adaptive mesh refinement and frequency-comb laser diagnostics, for the first time in wildland fire research,” he said.The ability to tilt and manipulate the flame in a lab environment could also help with a variety of research questions relating to how topography affects the fires. Studying how the flames react going uphill is especially important. That’s because fire usually travels uphill much faster than down. On the incline, before the fire even arrives, soon-to-be scorched areas have already been warmed by heat waves off the fire. Rieker, who is also in the Mechanical Engineering Department, said this is quickly becoming an important research area for the college.“It is an important research area for our region as well,” he said. “We are now planning a new project in the WindCline involving five CU Boulder-based investigators with others at Colorado State University, the Los Alamos National Laboratory and elsewhere.” Learn about the Department of Mechanical EngineeringCategories:ResearchFacultyTags:Blog Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via E-maillast_img read more
