    KTAM Aims to Become Thailand’s Leading Property Fund,Increasing Assets Under Management to 11.3 Billion

    The Bangkok Post reported on Thursday, 22 February that real estate investment in Thailand soared by 81.8 percent to $2 billion (1.3 billion)in 2012, nearly double the $1.1 billion (720 million) in 2011, as property funds markedly increased their investment activity.

    According to property consultant DTZ, Thailand’s real estate market was boosted by the listing of major property funds and a high number of acquisitions, particularly in the office and hotel sectors. Some $1.1 billion (720 million), or 55 percent of total real estate investment, came from transactions by real estate funds or public funds for public offerings (PFPOs).

    Investment activity received a major boost from the listing of Tesco Lotus Retail Growth Freehold and Leasehold (TLGF) in the beginning of January 2012, which proved to bethe largest property fund listing for the year. The $594-million (389 million) fund purchased 17 Tesco Lotus shopping malls in prime locations across Thailand in a deal which by itself exceeded half of the real estate investments in the country in 2011.

    Other notable property fund investments in 2012 included the purchase during the first quarter of three serviced apartment complexesand residences for $106 million (69 million) by the listed Land and Houses Freehold and Leasehold Property Fund (LHPF). Additionally, the Quality Houses Hotel and Residence Freehold and Leasehold Property Fund (QHHR) bought three Centre Point serviced apartments in the third quarter, for some $107 million (70 million).

    KTAM Eyes Real Estate Market

    Krung Thai Asset Management (KTAM) has the ambition to lead the market in property funds and,more specifically, to increase its assets under management by 20 percent in 2013 to 516 billion baht (11.3 billion), said chief executive officer Somchai Boonnamsiri, citing the positive overall investment climate.

    The Bangkok Post reports that Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi plans to raise funds through the funds managed by KTAM, with the subsequent capital increase being dedicated to turning KTAM into the global leader of this type of fund.

    KTAM is considering entering new markets including Mexico, Brazil and some European countries. Annualised return for short-term investments in these regions is forecast at 3.5 percent or about one percent higher than returns in the Thai domestic market.

    The Thai fund intends to boost the capital of property funds under the direction Sirivadhanabhakdi’s TCC group to as high as 50 billion baht (1.1 billion) this year. The fund also plans to launch ETFs on the Stock Exchange of Thailand in sectors such as food, energy, ICT and the commercial sector.

    2013 will be the last year in which Thailand’s Securities and Exchange Commission will allow investments in what has been known as property type 1, with introduction a new type of property fund, the internationally recognised real estate investment trust, set to replace the old structure.

    Since version 5, Alpha 5 has less emphasis on standalone databases, and more on Web applications. Alpha Five v10 Developer lets you create Web apps that are Ajax based, even if you dont have much programming experience. Even those its intended for those without much skill in coding, its still not a walk in the park for your average user. Getting the maximum out of it requires a decent knowledge of tables, forms, fields, and databases. Lacking that, it would take both patience and time to master. Luckily, there are great help resources on Alpha Softwares website, as well as in the software itself. If youre not a programming expert, youll probably need some assistance to get started.

    Alpha Five v10 has a number of options for desktop and Web environments. Alpha Five v10 Developer is the standard. There are also Alpha V Runtime, for deploying desktop applications, Alpha Five v10 Application Server, with a module server for the deployment of Web applications, and the All-In-One bundle. Each edition of Alpha Five v10 is compatible with Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.

    Alpha Five v10 doesnt have quite the userfriendliness of FileMaker Pro 11, which walks you through every aspect of creating databases in a point-and-click environment. Alpha Five v10 makes use of wizards, which they call Genies, for a lot of tasks, in a way similar to Microsoft Access.

    Actually, Access makes a better comparison to Alpha Five v10 than either Intuits QuickBase or Filemaker, as it also takes you fairly soon into obscure areas data types, table fields, and other advanced development and database concepts. Both Filemaker and QuickBase are great for putting a database together quickly, and basic database design, but neither offer the level of control that Alpha Five v10 does.

    If you have experience with SQL, Crystal Reports, and Front Page, you should have no problems. Novices shouldnt necessarily be discouraged, but the learning curve for Alpha Five is pretty steep.

    The impetus behind Alpha Five v10 Developer is Ajax, which is a group of Web development technologies used for creating Web applications with interactivity. Some well-known sites that were created using Ajax are Microsofts Live.com, Google Maps, Box.net and Gmail. Ajax isnt only for the tech giants, though; many smaller businesses use Ajax applications to add chat functionality, visitor polls, and other features to their websites.

    Concord Adex recently addressed the issue by writing to the worried residents directly in the three high-rise building in the CityPlace complex in Toronto notifying them that plans were in place to provide protective mesh on their glass balconies as a safety measure.

    The installation of this protective mesh comes following safety doubts after tempered balcony glass exploded across some condos in the city during the summer last year. Furthermore, thestar.com stated that last summer panes of glass dropped onto the street and some pedestrians minor injuries.

    Concord decided to keep the same glass supplier for their three building and decided to take action by installing wire mesh.

    Arash Beheshti, Concords vice-president of construction, was mentioned in the correspondents posted out to local residents as stating that although there is no conclusive evidence suggesting that the glass is faulty, “we are not taking chances with people’s safety”.

    Mr Beheshti further said to CBCNews: “I can’t speculate at this point as to what the cause of it is and therefore we’re taking a proactive measure to protect the community while we’re doing an investigation to make sure that the safety of our residents are not jeopardised.”

    Trudy Clark is one of the concerned residents. She was happy with the way that Concord had addressed the issue and for being very proactive in its efforts to put in meshing as a safety precaution.
    “They are doing this to prevent any accidents and for the safety of all the people in the condos,” she said to thestar.com.
    “It’s good. It seems like they are doing the right thing and that’s the way they presented it,” she further stated.

    John Barber, who has been a glass producer for over 30 years, said to CBCNews that vast numbers of suppliers and developers look to buy and make the best use of glass that has been produced with cheaper materials.
    “We’re seeing an influx of glass with no controls, no mechanism at all for quality,” he told CBCNews.

    Torontos building department stated that after conducting an extensive investigation into the incidents of falling glass said that the provincial building code may need to be assessed.

    However, area councillor Adam Vaughan suggested that the problem seemed to be “more of a manufacturing issue than a code issue”.

    “Glass spanned the way it is and mounted on the outside of a balcony is not the problem if it is manufactured properly, he declared. The question then becomes, is it an external coating on the glass or an internal laminate? Whats the best way to strengthen it so the span can still be reached?”

    Journaling is an excellent tool for dealing emotionally with almost any issue in life. The therapeutic applications of journal writing are endless. But it’s also true that sometimes you feel stuck, unable to make a move in any direction, and not even able to sit down comfortably with your notebook.

    For any number of reasons, known and/or unknown, you feel empty. You want to get answers, but you’re paralyzed in some limbo of inaction. You’re uninspired, listless, drifting. You haven’t even cleaned your house for the past month.

    Hold it right there. When in doubt, simplify. Could it be that modifying your environment will energize you?

    As sentient beings, people are affected by their environments. The flow of energy and the balance of forces in a given environment are studied in the ancient Chinese art of feng shui. Feng shui observes that clutter brings low, confusing, and draining energy into your home, which is detrimental to your own energy and well-being.

    Clearing out physical clutter can seem like an overwhelming and tedious process, but when you live and work in a clear, open space, your mind also becomes free and uncluttered.

    Your ease and wellbeing have everything to do with your surroundings. Could it be that your ennui is a result of the mess around you?

    Here are some ideas to make the task of de-cluttering more palatable.

    1. In the room or space where you plan to do your journaling, set a timer for 15 minutes.

    2. Turn on some favorite music, open windows if the weather allows, invite a loved one to join in if you wish.

    3. Clean one area of the space for the 15 minutes. Throw out as much as possible.

    4. Be merciless. If you can’t think of a reason to keep it in a few seconds, get rid of it! Hoarding is a generally unhealthy thing to do.

    5. Stop when the timer buzzes. Take a step back and admire your work. Great job!

    If you want to, set the timer for another 15 or 30 minutes, and continue. Or just do 15 a day for a while. At some point, the room will be clean and refreshed. Now open your journal and write about the experience.

    What did you see and feel when you looked at this room before? What do you see and feel now?

    What old baggage, physical or emotional, were you able to throw away while cleaning? What items were the hardest to get rid of? Why?

    How do you plan to keep your writing space fresh, inviting, and clean in the future?

    Working as a forum moderator is a great job for those who don’t like phone work. Few of the forum moderator jobs are paid, but there are many that don’t offer monetary compensation, but instead they offer other bonuses and perks.

    The most common forum moderator positions are for work at home website owners who have community forums. As their forums grow, the need for forum moderators is a must.

    What does it take to obtain a forum moderator job?
    There are a number of factors and each one is determined by the website forum Administrator. What comes to mind for me is how involved you are with the forum. Not many forum owners will blindly choose a forum moderator.

    Here are three qualities of how a forum moderator may be chosen:

    1. Involvement in the community – Are you active in the forums? Do you visit daily or almost daily? Do you welcome new members? Do you answer forum questions? Are you helpful to others or respond with helpful information?

    2. Personality – Do you get a long with a diverse group of people? Too strong of a personality may be a turn off. You don’t want to be a know-it-all and at the same time, you don’t want to be a push-over either.

    3. Work Habits – Do you lead by example? Are you diplomatic? Are you observant? Do you work well with others? Do you have a professional attitude and demeanor?

    There will also be specific duties expected from a forum moderator and some of these include:

    – Welcoming new members
    – Removing spam posts, editing and moving posts to the correct forums
    – Keeping the forum active by engaging in various discussions
    – Assisting the forum Administrator with other clerical duties
    – Overseeing the forum when the Administrator is not available or on vacation
    – Confidentiality
    – And other forum moderating duties assigned by the forum Administrator

    As stated above, most forum moderator jobs are unpaid, but this is a good way to gain experience if you don’t have a lot of online work experience and it’s acceptable to list your volunteer jobs on your work at home resume.

    Whether you got the job as an unpaid forum moderator or you volunteered, one very important aspect of becoming a forum moderator is remaining a true professional. What you do online whether you’re on the forum you’re moderating or elsewhere online, what you say and how you represent yourself is a reflection of you and the company or business you’re involved with.

    Just as easily you are made a forum moderator, this position can easily be taken away. All jobs whether paid or unpaid should be treated with respect and professionalism.

    Feng Shui Tips for Attracting Positive Energy With Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls

    Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of arranging interiors, is an effective way to direct energy and used in combination with quartz crystal singing bowls, will help you attract positive energy and good fortune into your life. The five elements of feng shui are a key factor in properly arranging your space to achieve the best results, and quartz singing crystal bowls can be used effectively with this method.

    The Five Elements

    Proper balance and placement of the five elements of feng shui (wood, fire, metal, earth, and water) is crucial to the proper flow of positive chi in your space. Quartz crystal singing bowls contain three of these elements – metal, earth and water, and they can be placed in several strategic places to enhance specific qualities.

    The metal element is associated with both wealth and protection, and can be used to attract more money as well as guarding your space from negative influences. Place a bowl in the West, Northwest and North areas of your space to enhance these energies.
    Water is another one of the major elements and governs our life-force, well-being, serenity, and our abilities to release and let go. It also has a direct influence on the flow of money. Place a bowl in the North, East and Southeast areas if you want to emphasize its water effects.
    The Earth element represents stability, security and permanence, and with its nurturing qualities, it also supports deep, lasting relationships. Place
    a crystal bowl in the Southwest, Northeast, West, Northwest and Center of your space for best enhancement of earth energies.
    Other Beneficial Effects

    With the quality of being tuned to specific notes, the tones themselves of crystal singing bowls can be used in creative ways to enhance your chi. For example, place a bowl tuned to the note of F (for the heart chakra) in the relationship area of your space to promote positive, loving interactions with other people. The material of crystal itself is also healing on its own, as crystal has strong clearing properties as well as positive energy. The light, color, and beauty of a crystal singing bowl will lift the energy of any area no matter where it is placed. Quartz crystal singing bowls are an effective tool for energy balancing, and users in combination with feng shui, will be sure to have a powerful effect on your life.

    Property development encompasses everything from renovating an existing property to buying a parcel of land and developing it. But before you start marketing your property it’s essential to know who do you want to sell it to? Developers take the greatest risk by investing in property and selling it, but at the end of the day they stand to make the most money from taking this risk.

    The first tip is to find the right location. Do your homework thoroughly by talking to local councils, town planners, local residents, property development marketing firms and carefully studying the building laws and regulations. Second, study the market carefully and evaluate its potential. An area that needs new housing will appeal both to clients and tenants. But building an apartment block in a busy business area will not attract clients. Thirdly, select the right team to design and construct the property. A good property development project manager can act as a mentor and will have established contacts and can save the client thousands of dollars in discounts. Finding and assembling the right team is one of the major key’s to successful property development. Right from the architects to the construction engineer to the surveyor will have a key role to play, and therefore need to be selected very carefully. Another essential is creating and maintaining harmony among the team. If the architect and the engineer dont see eye to eye, you will be the loser. You will be paying good money for delays in your project.

    One of the major factors in property development is planning carefully and methodically. Your project manager must be involved with you right from the time you decide to launch into this new venture. Defining the milestones and making sure that they are met in the project’s lifecycle will make the difference between you making or losing money on the venture.

    You will need to borrow from banks and financial institutions, and the key to securing financing will be to market the property. So for this you will need to develop a property development marketing strategy. Remember some banks and financing institutions make it essential for you to sell a part of the property before they lend you finances. Therefore it becomes essential for you to hire a property marketing firm that can design a marketing strategy and help you in selling the property. You cannot do site supervision, project management and marketing on your own.

    Reputed property development marketing firms know how the markets are behaving and what does an area need. In fact you must hire them right at the start to help you decide if you have made the right decision on property development. Collecting data, forecasting needs and trends is what they are supposed to do, asides from developing a marketing strategy for the project.

    For investors who have some capital under their belts, commercial real estate in Detroit can be a lucrative way to make more money. While it’s true that you will need some business experience and already have some money in order to make it work, if you are successful, you stand to make a great deal of profit. You do need to know your facts about commercial real estate in Detroit first though, and as with any business venture you will need to do your research before you enter into any kind of venture.

    There are six different sub categories of commercial real estate in Detroit: leisure, retail, office, industrial, health and multi-family. The credit crisis has meant that the retail sector may not be as strong as it used to be, but the commercial markets are still pretty lucrative for people who are well connected and ambitious. Leisure incorporates hotels, restaurants and cafes, while retail is concerned with shops, malls and shopping centers. Corporate and serviced offices make up the office commercial real estate sector, while industrial is dedicated to warehouses, distribution and garages. Health real estate is concerned with hospitals, nursing homes and medical clinics.

    One tip is to go into commercial real estate in Detroit, in whatever profession you have working experience in. That means, as an ex-hotelier or restaurant owner, you are likely to have a network and insight into the leisure sector and could do well by expanding your knowledge into the property market. Doctors who have made a sizeable nest egg and are familiar with the practicalities of running a medical practice tend to do well when it comes to medical or health real estate.

    It’s not only about buying a property and renting it out, so your previous professional experience can only take you so far. In order to be successful, you need to have good interpersonal skills and a strong financial acumen, and having made your money working for someone else for years, it may benefit you to do a course before you plough all your money into a real estate venture.

    You also need to be relatively well connected or at least have an idea of where you can find suitable clients that you can rent your properties out to. You will need market awareness of the lease durations your clients will need and the payment terms that will make your commercial real estate in Detroit attractive to potential customers.

    Are you looking for low maintenance and low cost garden design ideas? Choose a perennial garden that will greatly reduce your weed pulling and watering chores. Perennial flowers complimented by evergreen shrubs are a great choice for gardeners on the go. This combination allows anyone to cultivate a beautiful landscape with lots of shortcuts and is one of the best garden design ideas.

    Selecting A Site For Your Garden

    Selecting a site will be the first crucial step in planning a thriving perennial garden. Be aware of your ecological conditions to determine where an optimal site might be. The ease of access and visibility from the street, as well as within the home are factors to be considered.

    Who says you have to build big? Forget all the stereotypes; not every beautiful garden consists of neat rows of cascading flowers and rows of shrubs. Get creative.

    You may also want to use common sense when planning your garden; how much time can you commit to pruning, watering, and fertilizing? When looking to develop a low maintenance garden, it should be functional yet simple to maintain. Keep in mind, bigger is not always better. The smaller your garden, the fewer plants you must take care of.

    Easy Use Landscape Fabric

    When you begin a new perennial garden, spread a nonwoven polypropylene black landscape fabric over the soil. The fabric will keep weeds under control, embrace heat during cooler weather, and will allow the water to soak to the roots more efficiently.

    Stop by a local gardening center and buy the non-biodegradable fabric that only weighs about 3 ounces per square yard. Use a few u-shaped metal stakes to hold down the fabric.

    1. Measure your proposed planting site and keep in mind plants will spread out.

    2. Break up any compacted soil and remove any weeds. Mix peat moss and composted manure into the soil if necessary.

    3. Lay down the landscape fabric and secure the corners with metal stakes.

    4. Get a bit creative by drawing a pattern or paths onto the fabric with chalk. Cut out the pattern you have drawn to display holes. This is where you will place your evergreens, seeds or plants, into each of the holes.

    5. Space plants according to the recommendations on the labels. For a no-fuss garden, choose drought resistant plants, then fill in and cover completely with mulch.

    6. A beautiful, healthy perennial garden requires water, fertilizer, and mulch. If you nourish your garden with time-release fertilizer it will continuously feed your plants for longer periods of time.

    Developing good garden design ideas will surely provide years of beauty and enjoyment for you and your family.
