Morgan Stanley slumps

first_img KCS-content MORGAN Stanley’s chief executive James Gorman yesterday admitted he was “not satisfied” with the bank’s performance in the third quarter, when it swung into the red due to a poor trading environment and a writedown on the planned disposal of casino operator Revel Entertainment.Morgan Stanley posted a net loss of $0.07 per share, compared with net income of $0.38 per share in the third quarter of 2009, after taking a $229m hit on the disposal of Revel.Income from continuing operations fell by two thirds to $313m, while net revenues came in at $6.8bn for the quarter – a fifth below the $8.5bn the bank raked in a year ago.Morgan Stanley said its institutional securities arm had faltered over the period due to a slump in Wall Street activity, with revenues at the division almost halving since last year to $2.89bn. After bringing in $1.34bn of pre-tax income last year, profits at the division were all but wiped out to $240m in the third quarter of 2010.The bank’s staff compensation pot for the quarter fell by a quarter due to the poor performance, falling from $4.9bn in 2009 to just $3.7bn this year. The decline “primarily reflected lower compensation costs in institutional securities”, the bank said.Wealth management revenues remained broadly flat from last year at $3.1bn, while asset management performed better, swinging into the black on revenues that almost doubled to $802m.“Although we continued to make progress across some key businesses, our results in aggregate clearly do not reflect the true potential of Morgan Stanley’s global client franchise and I am not satisfied with our overall performance,” said Gorman, who took over from John Mack in January.

Rural House Renovation in Zhoushan / Evolution Design

Roofs have already partly collapsed, which can be expected when considering the technology and material conditions of the time. Two of the houses near the seaside, which have been unoccupied for 70 years and have somewhere around a four-meter difference in elevation, face the south, their gables facing the east and west, orienting them toward the sea and protecting them from typhoons. These two particular houses have been specially chosen.Save this picture!© JianPing YangEverything for these two “solid” houses both begins and ends with interior design. Between a span of three to five days, there needs to be a balanced consideration given to the local architecture, interior structures, landscape, and other spaces. Construction will only last 40 days (really 31 days), so how on Earth can everything be set up for filming in a way that would not affect local business? There are only a few hundred inhabitants on the island, with all living and manufacturing supplies coming in from the mainland. An architect faced with such a task would really have to take all these key aspects into account when finding the most appropriate course of action!Save this picture!© Yong ZhangWith the highs and lows of the terrain and picturesque views of the sea, the design focus here would have to be more on how to capture multi-angled views from inside the house looking out rather than merely how the house itself looks like. The house incorporated into the new design can be found on the eastern side of the collection of old houses lowest in altitude, where the only available patch of land facing the sea can be found, and it serves as a precise remediation of the lack of adequate depth and width the old houses have to carry out modern social gatherings. The new house is built with reinforced concrete and has a perfect match in terms of both structure and space while still remaining free of excessive decoration. Concrete was specifically chosen here to help the house withstand erosion stemming from the harsh sea climate.Save this picture!© Yong ZhangSave this picture!© Yong ZhangThe entire structure is composed of bedrooms renovated from the two old houses plus a studio converted from an old kitchen with collapsed roof that is now replaced by a glass ceiling. There is also a newly built reinforced concrete “box” facing the sea connecting two courtyards both on the upper and lower levels, respectively, to accommodate the upstairs master bedroom and two downstairs guest rooms. The new “box” space therefore serves as the common area for social and recreational activities.Save this picture!© Yong ZhangThe “new box” on the site is made to be inconspicuously retrusive. In the presence of the time-honored beauty of 70-year-old houses and the supreme natural landscape, any fresh elements seem unnecessary and charmless. That is why the new structure is meant to compliment and pay respect to the local area instead of gain a significant amount of the spotlight, which essentially underplays the structure’s full potential. Here, there is a balance between the new and old and understanding and harmony, and here, modern-day “aesthetics” and old “remains” thrive in co-existence.Save this picture!© Yong ZhangLooking at the overall layout, time has made the two houses part of the old village. To the local villagers, the new box may seem obscure or even negligible. Only when you walk into the courtyard from the old street, will you discover the secrets of this new space. The “climactic” 270° seascape is saved for last when considering spatial sequencing, but when observed from above the sea, the design seems to be a new organism facing both today and tomorrow.Save this picture!© Yong ZhangSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© JianPing YangThis program mainly concerns building renovation and design, not merely the pure alteration of interior space. Consideration should be given to public concerns and incorporate site selection along with the local environment and people, and interior design may also include how best to handle the owner’s personal issues.Save this picture!© JianPing YangCompletion should mean that structures are usable then and there, with perfect harmony between building, structure, electromechanical components, interior layout and landscape. Finishing everything in terms of design and construction in 60 days (really 40 days with the Zhoushan project) is most certainly a great challenge, and the practicality and degree to which the technological requirements, need for materials, and implementation process can be completed on time should always be a determining factor when deciding upon such a task.Save this picture!© JianPing YangToday, most of our concerns are often placed upon grand narrative-themed buildings, and we usually turn a blind eye to many homes that are humble but still relevant to daily life. A great number of public buildings may seem appealing at a distance of around 200 meters or so, but up close at 20 or even 2 meters, they become significantly less refined. We pay too much attention to how good a building looks on the outside while ignoring what lies inside. Perhaps we need our houses to be pure, low-key, reserved and less “noble”, and if a TV program can entertain the public and still convey a notion that makes people more aware of the vital relationship between environment and human-made structures, encouraging them to care about our own living environment and maximize their own spatial delight and spirit made possible by architectural aesthetics, then what harm is there in making such a process entertaining?!Save this picture!© Yong ZhangProject gallerySee allShow lessOrchids and Ladders / SERRANO+BAQUERO ArquitectosSelected ProjectsELKA Residential Building / DAAL Studio + ELKA ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projects “COPY” ArchDaily 2017 Save this picture!© JianPing Yang+ 50 Share Rural House Renovation in Zhoushan / Evolution DesignSave this projectSaveRural House Renovation in Zhoushan / Evolution Design Rural House Renovation in Zhoushan / Evolution Design ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/884182/an-untraditional-dream-house-an-island-rural-renewal-at-zhoushan-evolution-design Clipboard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/884182/an-untraditional-dream-house-an-island-rural-renewal-at-zhoushan-evolution-design Clipboard Photographs Houses “COPY” China CopyAbout this officeEvolution Design ChinaOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentZhoushanOn InstagramChinaPublished on November 24, 2017Cite: “Rural House Renovation in Zhoushan / Evolution Design” 24 Nov 2017.

Summer is Officially Here…And so is The Raymond 1886 Bar’s New Summer Cocktail Menu!

Required fields are marked * If the climbing mercury on your outdoor thermometer hasn’t made it clear, here’s one more sign that we’ve officially crossed over into the summer season: Pasadena’s mainstay 1886 Bar at The Raymond has just released its latest, greatest and tastiest summer cocktail menu yet!This time out, the summer list was put together by original 1886 Barmen Brady Weise, Greg Gertmenian and Peter Lloyd-Jones, along with the rest of the 1886 Bar Team which includes Adam McClean, Jesus Gomez and new team member Gillian Georges, but that doesn’t mean the influence of Marcos Tello wasn’t felt this season. Says Weise, “Marcos helped us define the categories and check our drinks, assisted in looking over methodologies and coming up with different ideas, put forth the concept of certain ingredients… he would suggest format, structure and direction within and outside of the framework as well. I like to refer to him as our sixth man – he’s always there, even if he’s not directly visible. He’s always a part of the team.”And, this time the team has really outdone themselves. In keeping with the four-category structure on their menu, the 1886 crew came up with some really inventive new categories to play with: Their Tiki,Our Tiki,Dirty Pretty Things and Elixirs.“Summers are playful, and I think that’s why our summer lists tend to be the most unchained; we get consumed by this childhood trance when planning them,” says Gertmenian. “In prepping for Summer 2013, we definitely put aside our reverence for logistics and the result, and so far, that has been triumphant. Marcos actually gave us the four categories for this menu. There aren’t many cocktail categories that shout ‘summer’ more than historic and nouveau tiki. We also wanted to create drinks that wouldn’t tax the body too hard in the So-Cal heat.”Starting things off, Their Tiki…. honors those who came before us with the ultimate in tiki drinkage, made to perfection as only 1886 Bar can. This includes classics such as The Zombie, Strawberry Colada on Fire and the classic Scorpion Bowl, made famous by the much beloved Trader Vic’s. But then, you get sucked into 1886’s world with Our Tiki…., featuring their twists on classic Tiki recipes. For example, there’s the Shooting Star, which is Weise’s unique take on the classic Mai Thai, except this one has saffron-infused gin instead of rum and highlights cranberry-infused St. Germain. Then there’s the Deconstructed Piña Colada, created by Gertmenian and featuring all the elements of a Piña Coladarearranged molecularly as an ice cream sundae with spiked lime sorbet, white rum pineapple foam, Barbados Rum coconut foam, oatmeal crumbles and a mist of bitters, all served in a classic ice cream sundae glass… with a spoon.“The driving thought process behind molecular technique is to rearrange the components of familiar dishes and ingredients so that you can experience the same flavors, perhaps at different times, or in different ways, which gives your brain a bit of a surprise within its range of comfort,” Gertmenian says of the drink’s inspiration. “I just kept picturing a large spoon carrying a three-layered cross-section: a cake-like coconut foam, a creamy pineapple foam, and a velvety bright green, lime sorbet. The motivation of that visual wouldn’t let me stop tinkering until I had it.”The next section, which Peter Lloyd-Jones counts as his favorite is called: Dirty Pretty Things….. Calling upon dive bar favorites to start, each drink has been re-imagined with a molecular flare, and many of which were crafted by new 1886 bartender Gillian Goerges, formerly of The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles. Some of the highlights of that section include the Sex on the Beach Popsicle, with white rum, fresh pineapple juice, and suspended chunks of fresh cranberry. You can also enjoy the Mojito Jello Shot with Flora de Cana, fresh lime juice and mint, or maybe you’ll want to try the Pickle-Back Sphere, taking Langer’s Deli pickle-brine and turning it into a thin layer of its own essence, creating a perfect sphere, which is then served with a shot of Powers Irish whiskey. 1886 guests might also want to give Weise’s Cherry Bomb a shot, with Anthem cherry cider, rum, and acid phosphate as a base, topped with a cacao nib-infused Becherovka.“Because my work with beer gained a lot of attention, it’s something that’s very near and dear to my heart, so every season I try to come up with a new malt cocktail,” Weise shares. “I’d been reading studies on acid phosphate and lactic acid, and how they’re natural byproducts during fermentation, so I wanted to use elements of fermentation to accentuate a cocktail including beer, and not in a traditional format, either. This is literally a dive bar drop shot, so I wanted to do something that was reminiscent of that, but not what you would expect, because the cherry cider and rum work really well together. It acts like an amuse-bouche for our more ambitious drinks in the Tiki section.”Closing out this season’s new menu categories is Elixirs…., which offers a smoother, silkier take on some stirred favorites. Weise is behind the Ciudad de Oro, which was inspired by Matt Biancaniello of Cliff’s Edge and includes coffee-infused El Dorado 12-year rum, Cynar and Absinthe. Or there’s the Cut and Run, a new version of a Manhattan with three aged white rums, dry vermouth and Benedictine, as created by Gertmenian and Adam McClean. But don’t miss the Red Belly Black, a Lloyd-Jones creation as a mezcal tequila Old Fashioned using grapefruit bitters, grapefruit-infused syrup and is then garnished with a grapefruit peel.“I like to try and put something forward each season that’s stirred to keep a variety of drinks on the menu and make sure there is something for everyone,” Lloyd-Jones says. “The Red Belly Black was inspired by a ‘smack,’ which is an Australian drinking term that refers to a drink using three different ingredients of the same flavor, so for this one, it’s grapefruit. It’s named after one of the most poisonous snakes in Australia, and also because the cocktail is actually red courtesy of the Campari. It’s a nice one for summer, and it’s really easy to drink.”And therein lies the problem… there are so many tasty libations, and so many of them are so easy to drink during this hot season. How can one choose a favorite? Lloyd-Jones was able to narrow down his preference to a section, but Weise claims he can’t pick between them, because it would be like asking him to choose between his kids, and the fact that all of the drinks are so unique. Even Gertmenian claimed it to be utterly impossible, but he was willing to give it a shot: “Maybe the Jamaican Farewell,” he suggests. “There isn’t a summer texture that isn’t represented in that cocktail, and they’re all harmonized masterfully. It’s got coconut cream, black rum, navy rum, yuzu juices, with spiced mango shrub, all sipped through a tall glass packed with crushed ice. Oh my goodness, why aren’t we drinking one now?”As for which one is going to be your new favorite, the 1886 Bar crew invites you to take a trip to The Raymond Restaurant in Pasadena and come find out for yourself!For more information about 1886 Bar’s new summer cocktail menu or reservations at The Raymond Restaurant, please call (626) 441-3136. Summer Cocktail MenuTHEIR TIKI….Pays homage to our tiki forefathers with some historic recipes, made perfectly.ZombieOur classic Zombie recipe with a blend of spiced and age rums, fresh citrus, and house-made fruit syrups, originally created by the father of tiki restaurants, Don the Beachcomber.Strawberry Colada on FireA tribute to the recently closed L.A. tiki landmark, Bahooka.
