Hervey Bay Farmhouse / Owen and Vokes

Enclosure + Comfort Vast and open natural landscapes do not provide the conditions suitable to enduring human habitation. The infinite scale of such a landscape, without limit or border, is also immeasurable to the human body and therefore generally discomforting. When placed in a vast and open landscape, there is a human predilection for making enclosure – a legible place which is measurable to the human eye and body, and which increases the chances for comfort and pleasure, and sustained human habitation. Our clients purchased a large, vacant parkland site for their new family house. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesOur first move was to define a place on the site within the vast and boundless landscape. An existing stand of young eucalypt, topographical nuances and preferred scenes told us where to erect an enclosure of brick walls. Symbolic of human intervention, the earth was benched and retained to complete the new place. The new enclosure, a public outdoor court, idealises the presence of nature. It simultaneously offers a comfortable place to dwell (refuge), and composes a picturesque landscape (prospect) beyond the apertures in its walls. Bricks During our first inspection of the site we came to the conclusion that we would build in brick. We seek appropriate reactions to settings. All of the neighboring houses were built in brick and we didn’t want our clients to unnecessarily oppose the established trend. Save this picture!We also seek a timeless presence in architecture. Bricks are neither pretentious nor fashionable. The bricks have been bonded in a humble way using a struck-flush mortar finish. We let sunlight embellish the large planes of red brick. As brick walls are the staple of the garden and the house, we were able to make seamless thresholds between interior and exterior realms. We have a preference for monumentality. Bricks allowed us to anchor the house to the site and to the ground – the territory of the child, and therefore of the family. Save this picture!On a simple conceptual level, we start with brick wall enclosures – poetically somewhat likened to a ruin such as those at St Helena Island. Internal and external rooms, lined in plasterboard or fibro, then occupy the enclosures. Cohabitation The house is designed to accommodate 3 generations of the one family. Our second early-design conclusion was that the best way to manage the issues of independence, security and privacy, within the site, and with adjacent sites, was to house all 3 generations within the one building. Save this picture!On the entry elevation, the large, centrally-placed brick screen is a shared facade that mediates depth, separation and privacy. On the rear elevation, brick piers break the walls into 9 room-sized facades, giving each room, and therefore each generation its very own private landscape outlook.Project gallerySee allShow lessPrada Transformer, Position 2: CinemaArticlesIn Progress: Doha Office Tower, Qatar / Ateliers Jean NouvelArticles Share Projects Year:  2008 Australia Architects: Owen and Vokes Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/28741/hervey-bay-farmhouse-owen-and-vokes Clipboard CopyAbout this officeOwen and VokesOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesHervey BayAustraliaPublished on July 14, 2009Cite: “Hervey Bay Farmhouse / Owen and Vokes” 14 Jul 2009.

The commission for casa Oval came from a young family with clearly defined needs and aspirations. This project presented a challenge that has become increasingly prevalent among Mexican architects: to build a house in a cloistered residential community that often imposes arbitrary, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions on all construction. Privacy and space efficiency were the two driving concerns for the project. The house envelope needed to afford sufficient visual privacy from the street outside, while also providing enough porosity to allow generous amounts of natural light into the house. Save this picture!© Marcos GarcíaOn the ground floor, the main entry opens to a vestibule that leads to wide space containing the dining and living spaces. A large sliding window opens to a backyard and concrete deck. The kitchen is resolved efficiently in a small space next to the dining areas. On the second floor we find the various bedrooms and a family living space; all revolving around a large glazed courtyard that floods the hallway with sunlight. Save this picture!© Marcos GarcíaAt a first glance, the house displays a simple, legible geometric composition; a closer look reveals a concern for craftsmanship and detail. This is especially patent in the design of various elements of the house, such as the metal fence by the entry, which consists of vertical steel strips with varying gaps; the reveal that separates the volume of the house from the ground and delineates the windows on the façade; or the punctilious assembly of planes in window frames. Concrete, wood and stone are prominent participants among the austerity in the interiors.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBehind “Hy-Fi”: The Organic, Compostable Tower That Won MoMA PS1’s Young Architects …ArticlesWinners of the 2013 BSA Design Awards AnnouncedArchitecture News Share Houses CopyAbout this officeElías Rizo ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZapopanHousesMexicoPublished on February 17, 2014Cite: “OVal House / Elías Rizo Arquitectos” 17 Feb 2014.

New platform whatCharity.com aims to ‘level the charity playing field’

first_imgNew platform whatCharity.com aims to ‘level the charity playing field’ [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VOJjDxMXs8&t=3s[/youtube] A platform aimed at helping donors and volunteers choose which charities to support has launched.A combination of an online directory and social media platform, whatCharity.com aims to ‘level the charity playing field’ by providing charities with a profile searchable by location, mission, impact, causes, donor and beneficiary reviews, resources needed, size and more, that lets people see what support charities need and choose which ones to work with.Each charity registered on the platform will have a free, automatically generated profile with their Charity Commission data, which they can then fill with relevant content including their mission, projects and the impact they intend to make. They can request any resources from the public or companies, whether it is skill-based volunteering, trustees, monetary or product donations from companies, or promotion of their shops and services.

According to whatCharity.com, it is the first platform to show charity ratings and encourage positive feedback designed to help instil more trust and transparency amongst the public.Basic charity profiles will be free, and during whatCharity’s beta phase, all charity profile functionality will be free of charge. WhatCharity will later introduce tiered monthly subscription fees for its premium features, based on charity size, for which it says it will offer an advanced GDPR solution, digital communication and promotion features.Tech start up Dobook Limited is behind the platform, and the national charity upload process will start in May and eventually whatCharity.com expects all England and Wales charities to be represented on the site.Tiia Sammallahti, founder and CEO of whatCharity.com said:“The decade long sector conversation about increasing transparency, focus on impact and donor engagement has not yet materialised through the creation of accessible digital consumer products, nor has seen a dramatic shift in the sector’s mindset. This leads to the fact that 93% of the UK public believe charities to be important but hard to navigate, lacking transparency and are perceived as financially inefficient.”“We offer a digital solution to a sector which is currently five years behind other markets in terms of its utilisation of technology and how it can be used to improve engagement with the public and deliver more resources to the sector.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Statement of the International press freedom mission

first_imgIn recent months journalists and media institutions seeking to report independently on the ongoing conflict have been attacked and intimidated in a seeming effort to limit public knowledge about the conduct of the war and to reveal their sources. This is a violation of the public right to know and the accepted norm that media sources should be protected. October 30, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Statement of the International press freedom mission Sri LankaAsia – Pacific The International Mission would welcome the imminent invitation of the UN Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression by the Sri Lankan government in line with its commitments to the Human Rights Council in 2006. News Background In order to follow-up on these missions, the International Mission returned to Sri Lanka in October 2008. The delegation for this visit is comprised of the International Federation of Journalists (www.ifj.org), International Media Support (www.i-m-s.dk), International News Safety Institute (www.newssafety.org), International Press Institute (www.freemedia.at), and Reporters Without Borders (www.rsf.org). In October 2006 and June 2007 delegations from the International Press Freedom and Freedom of Expression Mission to Sri Lanka, which is comprised of twelve international press freedom and media development organisations, undertook fact-finding and advocacy missions to Sri Lanka. The International Mission is alarmed at the use of an anti-terrorism law for the first time in the democratic world, to punish journalists purely for what they have written. J.S. Tissainayagam, B. Jasiharan and V. Vallarmathy have been detained since March 2008 and later charged under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. The Mission is worried about the dangerous precedent this sets for all media nationally and internationally. Follow the news on Sri Lanka Organisation Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Media rules gazetted on October 10th by the Sri Lankan Government provide for a number of contingencies under which broadcasting licences can be cancelled, including seven different grounds related to broadcast content. Moreover, a popular broadcast channel has been put on notice that it is to submit transcripts of news broadcasts “to be carried” every week as of October 28th. The International Mission deplores any effort to impose prior restraint or direct censorship on the media. News to go further Members of the International Mission met with the President of Sri Lanka, Ministerial Committee on Journalists Grievances, political parties, media owners and editors, journalists and media workers, human rights and legal experts, and the international community. Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Help by sharing this information Moreover, the International Mission supports the solidarity displayed by media owners and editors in seeking to bring the perpetrators of recent attacks on journalists to justice. Media in the North and East of the country have continued to bear the brunt of the worst forms of insecurity. Media access to war-affected areas is heavily restricted with journalists forced to reproduce information disseminated by the conflicting parties. Media are constantly threatened by all parties to the conflict in an effort to curtail independent and critical reporting. The International Mission condemns the murder of P. Devakumar in Jaffna in May 2008, as well as over a dozen other murders documented since 2005. Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge In the LTTE-controlled areas freedom of expression and freedom of movement continue to be heavily restricted preventing diverse opinions and access to plural sources of information. July 29, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts News The International Mission is shocked at repeated instances of elected representatives and Government Ministers using violence and inflammatory language against media workers and institutions. The Mission is also concerned that state-owned media and the website of the Ministry of Defence have contributed to the vilification of independent media and journalists. Such actions can only be construed as efforts to discredit media through false accusations and clearly places them in danger. 25 to 29 October 2008 News January 13, 2021 Find out more The International Press Freedom Mission to Sri Lanka, on its visit between October 25 and 29, found a deterioration in the press freedom situation since its last visit in June 2007, marked by a continuation in murders, attacks, abductions, intimidation and harassment of the media. In the recent World Press Freedom Index published by RSF, Sri Lanka has fallen to the lowest press freedom rating of any democratic country worldwide. Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists International Federation of JournalistsInternational Media SupportInternational News Safety InstituteInternational Press InstituteReporters Without Borders The International Mission applauds the solidarity and resolve shown by the five organisations of journalists in Sri Lanka – the Free Media Movement, Sri Lankan Working Journalists’ Association, Federation of Media Employees’ Trade Unions, Sri Lankan Tamil Media Alliance and Sri Lankan Muslim Media Forum – in a tough and challenging situation.

Open to the public on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 10:00 a.m., the Kidspace Greenhouse is a part of the Museum’s commitment to create new learning experiences and opportunities that connect guests to the natural world. The Greenhouse will also serve as a testing platform for program ideas to debut in the renovated Kidspace Gardens, which will offer new exhibit and program experiences, scheduled for completion later this Fall.Beginning on opening day, Wednesday, March 11, guests inside the Greenhouse can expect a mix of hands-on art and science activities. Such activities include: “stained glass” projects which explore the science of light and color theory, clay play and pot making and their cultural connections, and a more in-depth look at plants and what helps them thrive through experiences like seed-pot creation and “Wormy Wonders”, a visual and tactile experience of touching and examining worms and learning how they help enrich the soil to help plants grow. Technology will also find a place in the Greenhouse as guests are invited to use plants and a special device to create music. As the Grand Opening of the enhanced Kidspace Gardens draws close, these projects will be changed or adapted based on feedback from guests. The Kidspace Greenhouse will also provide a space for guests to view live, adult butterflies during Kidspace’s 19th Annual Butterfly Season, March 21 to May 3, 2015.“The Greenhouse is a great way for us to test out new programming in an environment that can easily be changed and modified. Our hope is to introduce programs that have strong potential and then continually refine those ideas based on the feedback we receive from guests and fellow educators. In this way, we hope to invite our guests into the process of curating the experiences here at Kidspace,” said Peter Crabbe, Kidspace Director of Exhibits and Education. “We are also very excited to create another experience that directs children and their caregivers outside to discover the wonders of the natural world both at Kidspace and in their own backyard,” said Crabbe.The Kidspace Greenhouse will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. when the Museum is open and is located in the Central Courtyard, adjacent to the main entrance of the Galvin Physics Forest.

Many Markets Shift Toward Owning vs. Renting

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Many Markets Shift Toward Owning vs. Renting Previous: Homebuyers Becoming More Cynical About Election Next: Can Banks Handle Another Financial Crisis? Home / Daily Dose / Many Markets Shift Toward Owning vs. Renting Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Many analysts have pointed out that housing is in the midst of a catch 22 where renters cannot afford a down payment for a home because they are putting such a large percentage of their income toward rent, but at the same time the reason they are spending so much on rent is because they cannot afford a down payment for a home.In 2014 and 2015, more families turned to renting as the single-family rental market substantially increased its viability as an asset class. Some studies lately have indicated that there has been a shift toward buying in the housing market, namely an annual study by the New York Fed released last week and survey by Redfin released in late May.The Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent (BH&J) Index, released this week by Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and Florida International University (FIA), suggests that the housing market as a whole is moving deeper into buying territory and that residential housing markets around the country are sound based on numbers at the end of the first quarter.“This appears to be driven by a steady but strengthening job market, rising rents relative to rising ownership costs and recent slower growth in traditional financial portfolios consisting of stocks and bonds,” said Ken Johnson, Ph.D., a real estate economist, one of the index’s authors, and a professor at FAU.The index measures the relationship between purchasing property and building wealth through building up equity versus renting a comparable property and investing in a portfolio of stocks and bonds. The index considers the whole housing market nationwide while isolating the markets in 23 large U.S. cities and found that 16 of them favored homeownership versus renting a comparable property and investing.Markets solidly in buy territory were Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, and St. Louis. Cities hovering around what the index terms the “indifference point” between buying versus renting were Honolulu, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle. All the markets around the “indifference point” saw their BH&J Index score for the first quarter move in the direction of ownership since the previous quarter.“This movement suggests that most consumers in these markets appear to have learned from the real estate crash and now understand that residential property prices can get too high,” Eli Beracha, Ph.D., co-author of the index and a professor at FIU. “This is a good sign for future housing price stability in these markets.”Dallas and Denver were deep in rent territory, according to the index, and continued to move that way in Q1 but at a slower rate than previous quarters. The index score of Houston, which had previously been deep in rent territory, moved deep into buy territory in Q1. In the past, that scenario has foreshadowed noticeable property declines in that market.“A perfect storm seems to be developing in Houston,” Johnson said. “I expect a lot of folks in Houston to be on the safe side and opt for renting over ownership.” BH&J Index Buying vs. Renting 2016-06-07 Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Before he began practicing, Richardson clerked for the Honorable Howell Cobb in the Eastern District of Texas.What obligations do the new RESPA loss mitigation regulations impose on servicers? Broadly, the new RESPA loss mitigation regulations require that servicers develop effective policies and procedures for reviewing loss mitigation applications and for communicating with borrowers once their loans are in default (12 C.F.R. 1024.38 -.41). More specifically, the regulations require that servicers review timely submitted loss mitigation applications for completeness and for any applicable loss mitigation resolutions. The regulations also require servicers to conduct their reviews of loss mitigation applications within a reasonable time frame and to communicate to borrowers if their applications are complete and whether borrowers are entitled to any loss mitigation resolutions. Finally, if borrowers are denied for the prospect of a loan modification, the regulations require that servicers provide borrowers with the specific reasons that they were denied and further to provide the notice that the borrowers may appeal the denial to different personnel employed by the servicers.What rights do borrowers have under the RESPA loss mitigation regulations? Borrowers generally have the right to induce their servicers review one single, complete, and timely submitted loss mitigation application submitted on or after January 10, 2014, the date the regulations took effect. The RESPA loss mitigation regulations also give borrowers the right to delay a number of milestones in the foreclosure process if they do submit timely and complete loss mitigation applications. Section 1024.41 of the regulations entitles borrowers to delay the following milestones, if the borrower has submitted a compliant application: (i) the initial filing of a foreclosure action, (ii) any motion for judgment that the servicer might file, and (iii), most importantly, a judicial sale of the mortgaged property. If servicers violate these regulations, borrowers have the right to recover actual damages caused by the violation, costs of an action filed against the servicer, and attorney fees. Statutory damages can be recovered if the borrower demonstrates that the servicer engaged in a pattern or practice of violating the regulations.It is also important to note what rights borrowers do not have under these regulations, but which they may attempt to assert nevertheless. Even if they establish liability against a servicer for violating these regulations, borrowers are not entitled to rescind a foreclosure sale. The regulations do not provide borrowers with the right to equitable or injunctive relief, but only to recover damages, costs, and fees.  Also, as the regulations expressly state in 12 C.F.R. 1024.41, borrowers are not entitled to any specific loss mitigation resolution, regardless of whether they submit a timely and complete loss mitigation application. Nor are the borrowers given the right to enforce an agreement between the servicer and the investor to achieve a desired loss mitigation resolution. Instead, borrowers’ rights under these regulations are limited to induce the servicer to review the application, to delay the start or the progress of a foreclosure action while the review is conducted, and to trigger the duty of the servicer to communicate the results of the review. But note that the borrowers will have greater rights once a revised version of Section 1024.41 goes into effect on October 17, 2017. Borrowers will have additional rights to receive disclosures when they are under a forbearance or repayment plan. Also, borrowers will be able to hold transferee servicers to the same duties as servicers that transferred the servicing rights to a new servicer, when a loss mitigation application was pending with the transferor servicer.What rights do servicers have under the loss mitigation regulations? Servicers are not required to review untimely submitted loss mitigation applications, specifically those that are submitted less than 37 days before a foreclosure sale.  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which drafted the regulations, did not want to create an incentive for borrowers to avoid foreclosure sales merely by submitting loss mitigation applications that cannot realistically be reviewed before the sale.Additionally, the regulations benefit servicers by defining a complete loss mitigation application liberally as “an application in connection with which a servicer has received all of the information that the servicer requires from a borrower in evaluating applications for the loss mitigation options available to the borrower.”  In this respect, servicers are held to a “reasonable diligence” standard to collect additional documentation when loss mitigation applications are incomplete.Finally, servicers are only required to review one complete loss mitigation application after the effective date of the regulations, January 10, 2014, and multiple loss mitigation applications need not stop the progress of a foreclosure action once a complete application has been reviewed and did not result in a resolution.What rights to litigate the loss mitigation regulations do borrowers have?With the exception of Section 1024.41, borrowers do not have a private right of action under RESPA Section 2605(f) to litigate claims that servicers have violated these regulations.  Federal district courts have denied that borrowers hold the right to enforce provisions of these regulations: (i) requiring servicers to enact loss mitigation policies and procedures (Section 1024.38), (ii) to make early live contact with borrowers regarding loss mitigation options (1024.39), and (iii) to ensure continuity of contact with borrowers (Section 1024.40).  Instead, the full extent of borrowers’ rights to enforce the loss mitigation regulations is contained in Section 1024.41.  Furthermore, as with all RESPA claims, borrowers must have suffered actual damages caused by the servicers’ violation of the loss mitigation regulations to establish liability.What are some of the trends in loss mitigation litigation?In many cases, borrowers have asserted claims against servicers without understanding the limited nature of their rights under the regulations. Often borrowers fail to acknowledge that they cannot rescind judicial sales by asserting actions against servicers under these regulations and that they are only entitled to review of one complete and timely submitted loss mitigation application.For these reasons, borrower complaints in district court are frequently dismissed for failure to state a claim under Rule 12(b)(6). Under Rule 12(b)(6), complaints are subject to dismissal if they do not contain sufficient factual allegations to enable the trier of fact to conclude that the defendant is liable. This can easily occur when borrowers attempt to assert claims under these regulations for which they have no private right of action or when they cannot allege that they submitted a timely and complete loss mitigation application to the servicer. Nor do the regulations bind assignees or investors, only servicers, and nonborrower spouses lack the standing to recover under the regulations.What are some of the better strategies to defend against borrower claims?At this time, probably the way to defend against borrowers’ claims against servicers under these regulations is to challenge whether the borrower’s pleading contains sufficient facts to state a claim against the servicer for a violation under Section 1024.41. However, several district courts are taking notice that many borrower claims are so fact-intensive as pleaded that the district court will deny a servicer’s motion to dismiss.  For instance, if the timing of the borrower’s submission of a loss mitigation application leaves doubt as to when the application was complete and submitted, the district court may deny the motion to dismiss. District courts may also deny the motion because all reasonable inferences of fact are resolved in favor of the borrower under the 12(b)(6) standard, and the remedial nature of the loss mitigation regulations requires that the regulations be liberally construed in favor of the borrower.Besides a borrower’s failure to allege the correct facts against a servicer to support a violation, the borrower’s complaint could nevertheless be subject to dismissal under the applicable state’s res judicata doctrine or the federal Rooker-Feldman doctrine. If the borrower had the opportunity to raise the alleged violation in state court or did raise it, the federal court may dismiss for lack of jurisdiction.If borrower claims are not resolved through the servicer’s filing a motion to dismiss, they may be resolved at summary judgment as the correct dates and documents submitted are put before the court. But trials are a possibility when real factual disputes arise regarding whether servicers complied with their duties within the applicable time frames.

Consider Taking Up RTI Cases On COVID-19 Issues For At Least 3-4 Hours Every Day: Madras High Court Tells Information Commission

first_imgNews UpdatesConsider Taking Up RTI Cases On COVID-19 Issues For At Least 3-4 Hours Every Day: Madras High Court Tells Information Commission Akshita Saxena30 April 2021 4:32 AMShare This – xThe Madras High Court on Wednesday asked the Central and State Information Commissions to consider a representation made by journalist Saurav Das for expeditious disposal of RTI cases pertaining to Covid-related issues. A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy observed, “It may do well for the State and the Centre to consider whether, particularly during the present Covid crisis, benches of the State Information Commission and the Chief Information Commission can take up matters on the virtual mode upon indicating an e-filing system to deal with Covid-related matters at least for three or four hours a day.” At the same time, the Bench cautioned, citizens should be careful in not diverting the attention of an employee from his main duties to attend to RTI queries only. Das had moved the PIL seeking constitution of additional benches at the State level and the Central level Information Commissions to respond to Covid-related issues. He pointed out that since the average waiting time for a case to be heard by the CIC and TNSIC is almost 2 years, several important pandemic related RTI appeals are not being heard on priority by these Commissions and they may turn infructuous if the normal waiting time is followed. “Time is of the essence under the RTI Act and even more so during the current COVID-19 pandemic, as any delay in the information sought for, could have a detrimental impact on public health and the lives of people”, it was argued. The Court said that it cannot directly issue a writ of mandamus for making a legislation or even to incorporate an amendment. Thus, it granted liberty to the Petitioner to make an appropriate representation to the Union to introduce corresponding provisions to deal with urgent matters in the appellate provision. “Since the State is represented, including the State Information Commission, the matter may be considered as expeditiously as possible and a decision communicated to the petitioner within a week,” the order stated. The State Information Commission had submitted that for nearly a year, a special sitting has been organised every Tuesday to deal exclusively with urgent matters and those covered by the proviso to Section 7(1) of the Act.

Insurance merger is not a popular union

first_imgThis week’s stock market reviewThe markets proved their unpredictable nature last week when CGU, the UK’sbiggest composite insurer and Norwich Union, one of the country’s leading lifeassurance companies, were wrong-footed by the City following the announcementthat the two companies have agreed to merge. The deal, which was struck inprivate and is said to be worth about £20bn, got the thumbs down and theirstock prices were badly hit. The enlarged group is set to dominate the UK general insurance market, whichincludes home, business and motor insurance. But on the life and pensions frontit would still be behind Prudential. The new group would command about 20 percent of the general insurance market and about half that of UK life business,although, with estimated annual premium income of about £26bn, the group wouldstill be dwarfed on the European stage, ranking behind France’s AXA Group,Germany’s Allianz, Italy’s Generali and Switzerland’s Zurich. Apart from the fact that the CGU and Norwich Union deal would threaten jobs,many City analysts think it represents a bad deal for Norwich Unionshareholders. The company has been the subject of takeover speculations sinceit de-mutualised. Many analysts think its shareholders may have lost theopportunity of receiving a much higher premium had the company been taken overby a major European player instead.Dow Jones crash gives investors the jittersThe stock markets exhibited heavy volatility last week when the US Dow JonesIndustrial Average crashed below the psychologically significant 10,000 mark –its lowest point since October 1999. The cause of the sharp fall was attributedto investors’ concerns about interest rates and corporate earnings. Many tookflight from shares and pilled into bonds. But despite the markets’ weakness, the global technology sector remainedstrong. During the week the pressure from across the Atlantic had a negativeimpact on the UK market. The FTSE went roller coaster, often shedding its gainsand finishing in negative territory.

Centrica, which last year bought the AA, theroadside breakdown group, has announced plans to develop a mobile Internetservice towards the end of the year. The company is setting aside about £150mfor the project.

Habitat preferences, foraging behaviour and bycatch risk among breeding sooty shearwaters Ardenna grisea in the Southwest Atlantic.

first_imgPelagic seabirds are important components of many marine ecosystems. The most abundant species are medium/small sized petrels (<1100 g), yet the sub-mesoscale (<10 km) distribution, habitat use and foraging behaviour of this group are not well understood. Sooty shearwaters Ardenna grisea are among the world’s most numerous pelagic seabirds. The majority inhabit the Pacific, where they have declined, partly due to bycatch and other anthropogenic impacts, but they are increasing in the Atlantic. To evaluate the sub-mesoscale habitat preferences (i.e. the disproportionality between habitat use and availability), diving behaviour and bycatch risk of Atlantic breeders, we tracked sooty shearwaters from the Falkland Islands during late incubation and early chick-rearing with GPS loggers (n = 20), geolocators (n = 10) and time-depth recorders (n = 10). These birds foraged exclusively in neritic and shelf-break waters, principally over the Burdwood Bank, ~350 km from their colony. Like New Zealand breeders, they dived mostly during daylight, especially at dawn and dusk, consistent with the exploitation of vertically migrating prey. However, Falkland birds made shorter foraging trips, shallower dives, and did not forage in oceanic waters. Their overlap with fisheries was low, and they foraged at shallower depths than those targeted by trawlers, the most frequent fishing vessels encountered, indicating that bycatch risk was low during late incubation/early chick-rearing. Although our results should be treated with caution, they indicate that Atlantic and Pacific sooty shearwaters may experience markedly differing pressures at sea. Comparative study between these populations, e.g. combining biologging and demography, istherefore warranted.last_img read more

Serena Williams seeded No. 25 after Wimbledon rules amended for maternity leave

first_imgJune 27, 2018 /Sports News – National Serena Williams seeded No. 25 after Wimbledon rules amended for maternity leave Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailTim Clayton/Corbis via Getty Images(LONDON) — Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams has been seeded 25th for this year’s tournament as she returns to the sport after giving birth to a baby daughter in September.Ending weeks of debate, the All England Club that organizes the British Grand Slam tournament decided to amend the rules and seed her, instead of following the ranking list that doesn’t take into account players’ taking a break for maternity leave.Williams, the most successful tennis player in history who was ranked No. 1 when she took her maternity leave, is ranked 183rd in the world after returning to the tour in March.She tweeted Monday: “7 days until Wimbledon. It’s hard to believe it’s been 16 years since my first title in London. What I remember most from that day is the genuine happiness and support from my competitor, big sister and best friend @Venuseswilliams.”Williams has a 9-month-old daughter Alexis with husband Alexis Ohanian.Williams, 36, told Good Morning America previously that it has been “interesting” to watch the world of tennis adjust its rules for new moms.“Unfortunately, in the ’90s they changed the rule whereas if you were injured [and] then you came back, you lose your seeding,” Williams said. “But they never took into account women that left No. 1 [because of pregnancy] “and left not for an injury, but to have a great life and not give up tennis, but to come back.”Katrina Adams, the U.S. Tennis Association’s president, agrees. Players should not be “penalized” for starting a family, she recently told The New York Times.“We think it’s a good message for our current female players and future players,” she said before today’s ruling. “It’s OK to go out and be a woman and become a mother and then come back to your job, and I think that’s a bigger message.”Williams has an ally in John McEnroe, the legendary U.S. tennis player and three-time Wimbledon champion, who now sits on the tournament’s seedings committee. To him, it’s a straightforward decision.“I don’t think there would be a player that would complain, especially the top ones, if she was one of the top eight,” he said before today’s ruling. “Why in the world would they want to play her in the first, second, third round? Nor should they, in my opinion.”Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki said she totally supports Williams.“She’s the greatest player to ever play the sport, having won so many Grand Slams and being number one for so many years,” she said before today’s ruling. “She deserves a seeding.”Williams played unseeded at the French Open in May, eventually pulling out of the Grand Slam in the fourth-round because of an injury.

(Credit: Wintershall Dea GmbH) Wintershall Noordzee has commenced production from the second b2 well at the Sillimanite field located approximately 200km off the coast of Den Helder, the Netherlands.Drilling on the second Sillimanite production well started in February 2020 by Wintershall Noordzee, a 50-50 joint venture of Wintershall Dea and Gazprom EP International.Wintershall Noordzee managing director Robert Frimpong said: “Nobody could have foreseen the impact the outbreak of Covid-19 would have on our activities.“However, by rapidly adapting to a new reality and through perseverance, we have managed to bring this new well on stream without any incidents and within budget and timeframe.”Discovered in 2015, the Sillimanite gas field is located directly on the maritime border of the Netherlands and the UK.Sillimanite gas field commenced production in February 2020Following the signing of an agreement between the UK and the Netherlands, gas production from the field commenced in early 2020.Frimpong added: “However, we experience an increasingly challenged environment in the Southern North Sea, with new exploration activities at a record low. Improving the investment climate is therefore crucial to secure the continued success of the Dutch E&P sector.“It requires improved framework conditions that encourages and supports continued exploration, developments and sustenance of infrastructure essential to the energy transition.”The gas from the b2 well will be transported through the 12km-long pipeline connecting the D12-B platform to the existing Neptune-operated D15-A production platform.From there, the gas will be transported to shore through the Noordgastransport (NGT) gas transportation system.Wintershall Noordzee is currently undertaking drilling programme at the Sillimanite South exploration well.If successful, the gas from the third well will be added to the export pipeline in the fourth quarter of 2020.last_img read more

(Credit: Allseas.) Swiss-based offshore contractor Allseas has announced that its heavy lift vessel Pioneering Spirit has successful removed the processing and accommodation topsides and flare jackets for the Total’s Tyra redevelopment project.The removal work is part of the French oil and gas company Total’s $3.3bn redevelopment of the Tyra field in the Danish waters of North Sea.The gas field, which is located 225km off the coast of Esbjerg, Denmark, is being redeveloped by Danish Underground Consortium (DUC) that comprises the Total Danmark, Noreco and Nordsofonden.The Pioneering Spirit has removed over 27,000 tonnes of facilities from the gas field over the last two weeks, and shifted them to recycling yards in Denmark and the Netherlands.Allseas’ scope of work in the project comprises engineering, preparation, removal, transportation, load-in to shore and recycling of the Tyra East Alpha (TEA) and Tyra West Alpha (TWA) topsides and jackets, integrated production facilities (IPF) module along with two flare jackets and monopole.Pioneering Spirit will return to Tyra to remove the TWA jacket in 2021The company said that the last two structures and flare jackets will be shifted to a cargo barge from Pioneering Spirit for load-in to the Sagro yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.It said that the motion compensated topsides lift system of the vessel has removed the 14,000 tonne TEA topsides and 7,800 tonne TWA topsides.The vessel’s new aft-mounted crane was deployed for the removal of the smaller, lighter structures of the platform.The Pioneering Spirit will next sail to Kristiansand, Norway, to remove the Ninian Northern topside installations from the field for Canadian Natural Resources International.Upon completion, the vessel will return to the Tyra field to remove the TWA jacket in 2021 and the TEA jacket in 2022.In June this year, Allseas’s Pioneering Spirit has successfully completed the single-lift removal of Shell UK’s Brent Alpha platform located 186km off the northeast coast of the Shetland Islands.last_img read more

Tenant fees ban impact will less than expected, says major estate agency group

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Tenant fees ban impact will less than expected, says major estate agency group previous nextAgencies & PeopleTenant fees ban impact will less than expected, says major estate agency groupBelvoir says the hit on its gross profits will be just 3% nine months after the tenant fees ban is introduced on June 1st, not the predicted 8% reduction.Nigel Lewis31st January 201901,407 Views  Franchised estate agency giant Belvoir says the impact of the tenant fees ban will be less than it had initially expected and will reduce its gross profits by 6% initially, and then by just 3% after nine months.The company had initially predicted an 8% reduction after the tenant fees ban comes into effect on 1st June this year.This upbeat prediction is within the company’s full-year results for 2018, which overall reveal revenues up by 21% helped by increased fees from its sales and lettings franchisees and a 20% increase in revenue from its financial services division.Belvoir is benefiting from a long-standing industry trend; franchised estate agents tend to do better during tough trading periods. Fees paid by its franchisees increased by 7.1% and its branches outperformed both the UK’s sales and lettings markets.Revenue growthUnderlying revenue growth within the company’s lettings operation was 2.6% during 2018, more than the national figure of 1.8% while sales revenue increased by 8.5% against a backdrop of national transactions dipping by 2%.But like many large estate agency groups, Belvoir is relying heavily on its financial services operation for most of its growth. Brook Financial Services, which it bought in 2017, alongside recently-acquired broker MAB, helped increased its revenues from selling mortgages by a fifth.“In 2018, Belvoir delivered on its promise to support franchisee growth through its Assisted Acquisitions programme, adding network revenue of £6.9m, ahead of our £6.6m target for the year and over double that achieved in 2017,” says CEO Dorian Gonsalves (above).MAB Belvoir brook financial services Dorian Gonsalves January 31, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Rightmove now pushing through 11% fee hikes on renewals, say agents

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » Rightmove now pushing through 11% fee hikes on renewals, say agents previous nextMarketingRightmove now pushing through 11% fee hikes on renewals, say agentsPortal confirms it is in discussions with customers, as emails go out confirming increases citing support given during Covid.Nigel Lewis5th February 202113 Comments12,910 Views Agents have been told by Rightmove that they face substantial hikes in their monthly fees when they come up for renewal.This includes one Home Counties single-branch agent who is a long-standing customer of the portal whose account manager has told him to expect a hike of 11% on his current monthly cost.An email sent to this agent, and others, points out that the costs of their core membership will increase even though their overall package options are being pared down.Instead, they are invited to either drop their spend on existing bolt-on services or upgrade to an enhanced package and eliminate their core membership fee altogether.“Whichever way you look at it, the portal is pushing through increases to recoup its lost revenue from the ‘reduced bill’ policy during the darkest days of the first lockdown,” says industry and proptech analyst Andrew Stanton (pictured).“Rightmove makes 74% gross profit and in 2019 made a pre tax profit of £213 million, so if they hike the baseline fee to each agent by between 8% and 12%, which are the figures numerous agents have shown Proptech-PR, will add anything from £15 million to £20 million or more in turnover, or 5% to 7%.“With new technology from other portals and platforms ahead of the game, and failure to innovate, the last thing I would do after last year’s schism and wall of silence is hack off your core clients.”Zoopla, which has a comparable agent client list but lower fees, says it spent £30 million on its agent discount scheme last year.The Negotiator approached Rightmove for comment. Its spokesperson said that: “We can confirm that we’re having conversations with some agents where their contracts are due for renewal.“As well as discounting agents’ bills to help them when the markets were closed last year and delivering a record numbers of leads and exposure for agents’ properties when the markets reopened, we’ve also worked on a number of innovations to help them for the long term.”Rightmove says this includes online viewings, its Local Market Indicator data service, a redesigned property details page, and its Rightmove Hub platform.The portal also says it is in the process of rolling out its viewings manager service to help letting agents book and manage viewings with tenants.Andrew Stanton Rightmove February 5, 2021Nigel Lewis13 commentsAndrew Goldthorpe, PropertyMutual.com PropertyMutual.com 5th February 2021 at 2:52 pmAgreed Andrew Stanton. The disconnect between the C suite and the members is appalling.Rightmove achieved success 20 years ago precisely because it DID NOT have to borrow £millions to take on an entrenched corporate duopoly. It would never have got off the ground if it had to. Rightmove achieved rapid success with agents because a) it was unique, b) there was no corporate duopoly, and c) it offered an unwritten contract with agents for mutual betterment. Monetisation had to follow, but the selloff did not, and that contract with agents was forever broken. I also believe that Zoopla and OTM fall into this same category. They may be delivering leads at the moment but at what cost to agents’ control over their own destiny?My sincere hope is that the Covid crisis has finally made the scales fall from agents’ eyes. It is my view that the more money a “challenger” raises, and I include OTM as a challenger, and the more they shout about what big trousers they have, the worse it is for agents! All investors have an exit strategy. All investors want back those same £millions back, plus interest, plus annual profit share and dividends. And how do these “challengers” make back those £millions? Off the backs of agents, by leveraging the traffic their listings generate, and the second-tier transactions that they hope to sell to consumers. It is essentially the same 20-year-old business model, except at least they are being honest about using agents’ data generates to make money for investors!Zoopla could not be more brazen about it, and the other stock market owned portals will inevitably have to follow their lead as their shareholders are in the driving seat. Bizarrely, some see this as a virtue. Sure, some revenue will go back to agents, but it should be 100%!Log in to ReplySteve Way, Oxlets Ltd Oxlets Ltd 5th February 2021 at 1:28 pmThis is exactly why I dumped Rightmove in April 2020. I’m a one man lettings & property management business and with their constant and excessive hikes it was simply an unsustainable model. It hasn’t impacted my business at all other than more money in the bank, more money to my pension pot and funds to use on increasing social media presence. It’s not the agents that need convincing that Rightmove are bad – it’s the public. The message has to be conveyed that people will lose out on their dream home if they blinker themselves to one portal when searching. The more the searching public realise this, the more the other portals will challenge Rightmove and then the more agents will leave them. I’m with Zoopla and OnTheMarket – these together are giving me more, and higher quality, leads than Rightmove ever did, esp OTM. So good riddance to Rightmove, they deserve to lose.Log in to ReplyMitchell Klein, Propertymail Propertymail 5th February 2021 at 1:10 pmSounds like extortion….!!!Years ago they would of been looked into, especially with their profit margins.

Memories and beginnings

first_imgEighty years to the day from when Harvard’s Memorial Church was dedicated in honor of the University’s dead from World War I, members of the University community gathered again in the sacred space on Veterans Day weekend to remember the fallen heroes of wartime, and to welcome a new spiritual leader.The Rev. Jonathan Walton’s  installation as the Pusey Minister and Plummer Professor of Christian Morals on Sunday coincided with Harvard’s annual ceremony to commemorate those who died for their country.“We are all beneficiaries of someone else’s sacrifices,” said Walton, citing his own indebtedness to his distant ancestors and extended family, as well as the nation’s debt to its war dead and its veterans. “None of us are self-made women or men, for it’s by the good will and grace of another, seen or unseen, that our imaginations, our aspirations, and our industriousness are able to take root and blossom into what we have to call achievement.”Walton’s friends and family, as well as members of the Harvard faculty, the administration, the military, and the Harvard community filled the church for the service. Several attendees took part in the formal celebration. David Hempton, dean of Harvard Divinity School (HDS), read a lesson from the New Testament, and a number of undergraduates read prayers and assisted in the service. At Walton’s request, sisters and Lowell House residents Arielle and Danielle Galler Rabinowitz ’14, whom he met while he served as a Lowell House resident scholar, sat side by side at the piano and played Hungarian Dance No. 1 in G Minor by Johannes Brahms.The Rev. Charles G. Adams, a former professor at HDS and pastor of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit, delivered the day’s sermon, a moving talk titled “Yes We Can.”Walton’s longtime friend and mentor put a spiritual spin on the slogan from the 2008 presidential campaign. “Yes, we can do the impossible,” Adams told the congregation. The pastor told his listeners that the impossible — in everything from the inability to count calories, to quit smoking, to “maintain my sanity in an insane society,” or to lead fulfilling lives — is possible with faith in God and each other.“Yes, we can, together. Together we can. … We can do the impossible through Christ and through human community, which makes all things possible.”The official installation was officiated by Harvard President Drew Faust, who asked Walton as he stood with his family at the front of the church: “Do you, in the presence of this congregation, commit yourself to these new trusts and responsibilities?”“With God’s help, I do,” Walton responded.Faust then asked the congregation, in “witnessing this new beginning,” if it would pledge to support and uphold Walton. “We will, with God’s help,” the attendees answered. She then instituted Walton and introduced him to the crowd, which received him with loud applause.In brief comments, Walton echoed Adams’ sentiments. He praised the community of family, friends, scholars, teachers, and mentors who have “played such a critical role in my life and my academic and human training.” He also praised his new home, and the welcoming Harvard community. “[My family and I] praise God for giving us you. We love you. We thank you. Yes, we can, by God’s grace, and with the love of one another.”Remembering Harvard’s war dead and veteransHarvard commemorated Veterans Day with a ceremony featuring the solemn placing of a wreath in the church’s Memorial Room, honoring its benefactors. While the church was dedicated in 1932 to commemorate Harvard alumni who died in World War I, it now contains memorials to the University dead of World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the graduates of Radcliffe College who died in World War I.“This building honors those who paid the ultimate price with their lives in World War I,” said Walton. “And while, unfortunately since that time, the list of the war dead continues to grow along the wall, we continue to embrace the sublime principles of dedication and sacrifice that animated their efforts.”Prior to the day’s service, Nathaniel Katz, the church’s Epps Fellow, offered encouraging words to the three young Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) cadets from Harvard who served as the official Color Guard for the ceremony and placed the wreath in the Memorial Room as the church’s bell tolled.“You are the reason we are here today,” said Epps. “We are grateful, very grateful.”For ROTC cadet and sophomore Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, the ability to take part in the service carried special meaning. “My grandparents were liberated by Gen. Douglas MacArthur in the Philippines during World War II,” said the Kirkland House resident. “It was very important for me to be able to thank and commemorate the veterans who played a part in that, and in other conflicts.”The legacy of the Rev. Peter J. GomesWalton’s desire to build community is in close keeping with that of his predecessor, the Rev. Peter J. Gomes. Walton has introduced a coffee hour following Morning Prayers, offering those attending the chance to get to know one another following the brief daily service. He also hosts regular tailgate parties prior to Harvard home football games at Sparks House, a practice that follows in the footsteps of Gomes’ weekly Wednesday teas.“Everybody may not belong to Memorial Church … but we belong to everybody,” Walton said in an interview earlier in the week. “We are in the business here of educating minds, enriching hearts, and expanding lives. And I think that can impact everybody and anybody.”Florence Ladd, who directed the Mary Ingraham Bunting Institute, the precursor to the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, from 1989 to 1997, grew emotional when reflecting on the institution service. A longtime member of the church, Ladd got to know Walton while working with the Senior Common Room at Lowell House. She wrote a letter recommending him for the Memorial Church position.“I am thrilled and moved beyond belief in this moment,” Ladd said. “I think he has enormous promise. I think he will make his own path and leave his own footprint on this church, inspired by God.”Marcia Potter, the mother of Epps Fellow Katz, regularly listens to the church’s weekly radio service from her home in California, and she said Walton inspired both hope and healing.“I just felt like the connection from Peter to Jonathan was fully achieved today. Peter was remarkable, and you can see within Jonathan all the possibilities and promise,” said Potter during a reception that Faust hosted after the service. “Everything about the joy we felt in past, I felt today too. It was a healing feeling for me today.”last_img read more

The Almighty Arrives on B’way! An Act of God Starts Previews

first_img View Comments The Almighty has entered that most holy of places, Broadway’s Studio 54! The Jim Parsons-led new comedy 
An Act of God will begin previews on May 7. Directed by Joe Mantello, the stage adaptation of The Last Testament: A Memoir By God, is set to officially open on May 28.The Creator Himself has written the Play, which has been transcribed by Emmy-winning The Daily Show head writer and executive producer David Javerbaum. God (through His press agent) has billed the show as such: “A 90-minute conversation in which I will reveal the mysteries of the Bible and answer some of the greatest existential questions that plague mankind.” In an early statement, He said, “This Play will help clear up the fallacy that I’m old fashioned…and instead reveal the true Me: up-to-date and holier-than-you.”Along with Parsons as God, the cast will also include Christopher Fitzgerald and Tim Kazurinsky as angels.

Pro Bono Awards: Voluntary Bar Association Service Award

first_img THE VOLUNTARY BAR ASSOCIATION PRO BONO SERVICE AWARD RECIPIENT Jacksonville Bar AssociationThe Jacksonville Bar Association is a voluntary bar which has served the greater Jacksonville Area (Duval County, Baker County, Clay County, St. Johns County, and Nassau County) since 1897. It has been a long-standing tenet of the Jacksonville Bar Association to not only serve the legal community, but the community in general. As a result, numerous programs and services have been provided throughout the years by members of the Jacksonville Bar including, but not limited to, the Special Olympics, Teen Court, Holiday Project for the Elderly, Holiday in January for children associated with the Department of Children and Families, the Mentor Program, Law School for the Public, and various seminars and forums held for both the legal community and the community at large. In keeping with their tradition of assistance and support, the Jacksonville Bar Association, in conjunction with Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, established a legal in-take clinic at the I.M. Sulzbacher Center for the Homeless in 2001.In essence, since the homeless do not have access to the legal community in a convenient forum, the legal community has gone to the homeless. Specifically, the legal clinic is held on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the I.M. Sulzbacher Center for the benefit of the guests at the center. Each session includes a minimum of four attorneys: two attorneys who specialize in general litigation, a family law attorney, and a public defender. The center provides a staff liaison, Freda Hodges, to assist Alan Pickert, a private attorney with the law firm of Brown, Terrell, Hogan, who coordinates the project for the Jacksonville Bar, and Sarah Jones Fowler, director of Jacksonville Area Legal Aid’s Public Service Projects, who oversees the in-take project for Legal Aid. Both Pickert and Fowler participate each month to provide continuity while the other volunteer attorneys who participate rotate through the program. Additionally, many presentations are also conducted during the course of the year at the center in conjunction with the legal clinic in-take, covering various substantive topics including employment, divorce, housing, and criminal concerns.The I.M. Sulzbacher Center averages 278 homeless guests on a daily basis, and a great number of these guests have legal problems which require an attorney’s attention. Those individuals who sign up to meet with an attorney for the legal in-take are then interviewed by the attorney and their case is either accepted by the attorney or referred to Legal Aid staff or pro bono attorneys for further follow-up. However, numerous times counsel’s advice during the in-take session resolves many of the problems.Since its inaugural debut in February, 2001, over 50 private attorneys have extended their already busy day to interview over 200 guests of the Center with issues ranging from child support to record sealings. Thus far, attorneys have donated almost 300 hours to this program, interviewing guests, administrating the project, and handling the cases pro bono for the guests.The Sulzbacher Center already views the clinic as a tremendous success. As Hodges, a life skills educator for the center, stated: “We are inundated with legal questions throughout the course of any given day by our guests. The questions can range from divorce/child custody issues to landlord/tenant disputes, to workers’ compensation or employment cases. The guests want real answers, and quite frankly we do not have the answers. The guests are always excited and look forward to being able to meet with attorneys to address their needs and to know that there are individuals out in the world who care about them.”One such example of the impact of the program was illustrated at the center’s annual fundraiser, “Transformations,” which was attended by Fowler and the past chairperson of the project from the Jacksonville Bar Association, Marianne Lloyd Aho. During the fund-raiser, the Center honors its partnership with organizations and recognizes the successful transformations of its guests. One such successful transformation concerned a guest who was wrongfully denied unemployment compensation benefits that she desperately needed to support her family until she found future employment. utilizing the program, the grateful guest was justly awarded the benefits that had been wrongly denied her, thereby moving her one step closer to achieving her goal of self-reliance for her and her children.Every month brings an entirely new flow of guests requiring legal assistance. Everyone involved in the project works diligently to refer guests to the clinic with the hope of helping them remove yet one more barrier toward their independence. As one individual stated, legal assistance was the “missing piece of the puzzle” for the Center. Now the picture is complete thanks to the Jacksonville Bar Association.

The CFPB’s new cure: Final revisions to certain mortgage rules

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Shelbey NeilJust as the world of popular medicine seems to evolve (and even contradict itself), so too is the world of regulatory compliance in a constant state of flux. Nowhere is that more evident than with mortgage rules, and the CFPB has released a new mechanism for curing point and fees errors (this statement has not been evaluated by the FDA).OverviewThe CFPB has made some specific amendments to the mortgage rules under Regulation Z. Of interest to financial institutions are the final rule changes that provide a cure mechanism for overages to the points and fees limit for qualified mortgages, with the exception of FHA-insured mortgage loans. HUD is not adopting the changes to the points and fees limits for FHA-insured mortgages, but is providing guidance on curing errors to points and fees made prior to insurance endorsement.Curing Errors Related to the Limits on Points and Fees for Qualified MortgagesSection 1026.43(e)(3) of Regulation Z limits the up-front points and fees for qualified mortgages to no more than 3% of the total loan amount, with higher thresholds for various categories of loans below $100,000. Points and fees are defined as the fees and charges that are known at or before consummation.In some cases, unintended overages may occur that are not discovered until after consummation. Now Regulation Z allows lenders (or an assignee) to cure these overages so that the loan does not lose its status as a qualified mortgage and the lender is not subject to a regulatory violation and/or potential liability. continue reading »last_img read more

Engage employees through targeted retirement plan communications

first_imgYour work force may include a number of employees who are not taking full advantage of your retirement plan and are at risk of not having enough savings to retire comfortably. How can plan sponsors engage employees and encourage them to use their retirement plan effectively? Tailoring employee communications and education can help. Below, we answer questions you may have about targeted communications.Why do targeted communications encourage greater engagement? Different groups of employees often have different retirement planning needs. When a retirement plan communication is tailored toward a specific group, that message becomes more relevant. For example, younger employees may be more interested in a message about the importance of getting an early start on saving and the power of compounding than older employees who are getting close to retirement age.How should employees be segmented? It really depends on the demographics of your work force. Grouping employees by life stages is a relatively common approach. But other criteria, such as income or educational level, also may be useful.In addition to demographics, you may want to look at retirement plan behaviors of your employees. For example, messages can be targeted toward employees who do not participate in the plan, employees who do not contribute enough to receive the full employer matching contribution, employees who do not increase their contributions over time, and employees who take frequent loans from the plan.

‘Mr. Robot’: The Show That Will Save Our Summer

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York America, we have found the cure to our summer television doldrums.USA Network on Wednesday debuted its out-of-the-mainstream hacktivist thriller Mr. Robot, which dares to create its own genre of TV activism, whether intentionally or not, by eschewing conventional political norms and aggressively challenging the status quo.Mr. Robot follows a skilled and troubled hacker named Elliot (Rami Malek), who is saturated with Robin Hood-esque ideology. Elliot saunters through city streets in a dark hoodie, only revealing himself when he’s personally confronting targets or poking through their digital lives in the comfort of his dreary apartment.We quickly learn that Elliot repeatedly questions his own mental state and enjoys morphine in moderate dosages, so far as we know. But he is definitely not a fan of America’s corporate overlords. In fact, he’s convinced that the “top 1 percent of the top 1 percent” controls the world. These issues seem to inspire his illegal, yet exhilarating, intrusions into the lives of those he seeks to expose.It’s hard not to compare Elliot to serial killer Dexter Morgan (Dexter), who followed his own moral “code” that allowed him to chop up people who themselves had committed evil acts. Instead of collecting blood samples as a trophy, Elliot keeps a binder filled with CD’s of those he deems morally reprehensible. While Dexter killed to satisfy a natural urge he couldn’t suppress, Elliot seems to act for the greater good, though he does get a measure of joy by upending people’s lives.Mr. Robot pulls no punches, even taking jabs at the world’s most revered icons. Instead of genuflecting on the life of brilliant Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, Elliot can’t help but think of the deplorable conditions that Chinese workers manufacturing Apple products are forced to endure, while the company rakes in billions. The issues of economic inequality and exorbitant student loan debt are also central themes in the premiere episode. And what does he think about the world’s leading social media organization? “I hate Facebook,” Elliot says. Point taken.The pilot episode begins with Elliot uncharacteristically meeting face-to-face with one of his targets. The scene is tense, invoking visceral reactions from both characters as they stare each other down from across a small table.While the interaction is meant to shed insight into Elliot’s brilliant hacks, it also provides a glimpse into the protagonist’s life: he lost his father to Leukemia; he admits to perhaps being a little crazy; he won’t be silenced by money.Despite political views reminiscent of Occupy Wall Street, Elliot works for a computer security company that protects the very institutions he can’t stand, including E Corp., a mega-corporation which Elliot dubbed, “Evil Corp.” His best friend Angela (Carly Chaikin), an account executive at the firm, got him the job.Elliot doesn’t enjoy going to work, but he does feel an allegiance to Angela. So when an unknown hacker conducts a sophisticated Denial of Service (DoS) attack into E Corp.’s systems, Elliott is forced to play hero, despite the company’s representing everything he hates about the power that money breeds.This hack leads him to a shady character played by Christian Slater, who goes on to preach to him about an upcoming revolution, one that would bring about the largest redistribution of wealth in history. On the surface it would seem that such a cause would immediately appeal to Elliot’s own propensity for digital vigilantism, but he comes away conflicted.After several unsuccessful attempts to discover a summer series worth devoting time to, we may finally have found a winner.But the question is will Mr. Robot’s unapologetic take on America’s widening income gap amid Wall Street’s record profits be too much for some viewers to handle?The USA Network doesn’t seem to think so. After one episode it has already been renewed for a second season.last_img read more

Foreign missions urge citizens to leave Indonesia amid COVID-19 crisis

first_imgWashington has already urged its citizens not to travel to the archipelago “due to the Global Health Advisory and Embassy Jakarta’s limited capacity to provide support to US citizens,” it said in an online travel advisory for Indonesia.It follows a March 14 decision to authorize the departure of US personnel and family members “from any diplomatic […] post in the world who have determined they are at higher risk if exposed to COVID-19 or who have requested departure based on a commensurate justification”.The US mission has a track record of taking early precautionary measures for its citizens, sometimes well before a serious incident occurs.In 2016, the US Embassy reportedly sent out warnings to its citizens to avoid the area around Sarinah Plaza and the Sari Pan Pacific Hotel in Central Jakarta, just hours before terrorists launched a shooting spree there. Foreign missions in Indonesia are racing against time to get their citizens home before transport restrictions come into full effect, as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise and concerns over the country’s healthcare capabilities deepen.The United States Embassy became the first foreign mission to announce that family members of its staff who are under 21 years of age must immediately leave the country.“The Department of State made this decision due to evidence of COVID-19 in Indonesia, current Indonesian medical capacity, and current availability of flights out of Indonesia,” the embassy said in a statement published on Thursday. In 1998, the embassy moved to evacuate all staffers to Singapore before airlifting them home, days before massive riots broke out all across Jakarta.Meanwhile, Indonesia’s closest neighbor Australia also updated its travel advisory with strong wording and advised its citizens to leave the country.“If you’re an Australian tourist in Bali [or Indonesia more broadly] leave now – don’t delay your departure. If you’re a long-term Australian resident of Indonesia, consider whether you have the support and access to effective health services you and your family will need in what will be a hugely challenging period for local authorities and service providers. Many services will not be available,” Canberra said in its latest travel advisory updated on Thursday.The update follows measures last week to offer non-essential staff and family members from Australian diplomatic posts across the country the opportunity to return to Australia before air travel is completely restricted.Other countries have meanwhile been more reserved in their actions, at a time when COVID-19 has infected more than 1,000 people in Indonesia and killed 87 people as of Friday.European Union Ambassador to Indonesia Vincent Piket said his approach was to “strike a balance between business continuity and the safety of our staff and their dependents”.He said the EU delegation was in full teleworking mode and all staff were asked to work from home. Meanwhile, all nonessential staff were authorized to return to Europe with their families.“The EU delegation and the embassies of all EU member states work together for the repatriation of EU travelers stranded in Indonesia due to the lack of flights. Our first priority is to bring home the elderly, other vulnerable persons and families with children,” Piket said in a statement to The Jakarta Post on Friday.British Ambassador to Indonesia Owen Jenkins said that British nationals staying in Indonesia in the short term should immediately weigh their options as more airports had closed and more airlines had suspended flights.“If you can think of any circumstances at all where you would wish to be in the UK over the next few months, we strongly advise you to leave,” Jenkins said in a video posted on the embassy’s Twitter account on Wednesday.The COVID-19 outbreak has put a massive strain on Indonesia’s healthcare system, with reports of inadequate medical supplies and the deaths of hospital workers amid a surge of new cases.A hospital crisis looms as reports indicate inadequate facilities to treat COVID-19 patients, while protective gear is in short supply in both referral and regular hospitals across the country.Foreign missions have identified these shortcomings and communicated them to their citizens. The Australian Embassy, for instance, said that critical care facilities are “significantly below the standards available” at home.While such policies might indicate distrust in the Indonesian healthcare system, it also poses even greater risks for these foreign citizens, said Dewi Fortuna Anwar, an international relations research professor at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences’ (LIPI) Center for Political Studies.“Sending children back to the US is even riskier – they’d be flying extensively and transiting in hubs that bring together many people from around the world, so the risk of contracting the coronavirus might be even higher,” Dewi told the Post, in reference to the US policy.Furthermore, she added, the healthcare systems in the US and in Europe also already faced huge pressures and had not shown any great successes either.“Frankly, there is not one country that can give such assurances. What is certain is that long-haul travel – and especially cross-country travel – is reckless. People are asked to stay at home, not to engage in international travel and spread the virus further,” she said on Friday.Globally, more than half a million people have been infected and some 24,000 people have died, according to the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering. The US currently has the most cases.Topics :last_img read more

(Photo by Hans Gutknecht, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Patrick Beverley took the microphone before tip-off of the Clippers’ season opener Wednesday at Staples Center and promised a sellout crowd of 19,068 a “hell of a season” ahead.It was heck of a start, anyway, for the referees’ whistles and the basket at the south end of Staples Center, which needed some realigning in the fourth quarter after a few especially punishing dunks by Boban Marjanovic in the Clippers’ 107-98 loss to the Denver Nuggets.In a foul-plagued first outing by both teams (they were whistled for 54 combined, with the home team responsible for 32), Clippers rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played like he belonged, contributing 11 points and four assists in his first 28 minutes of official NBA action – and Marjanovic did his best to lift the Clippers over the hump.They’d spent most of the game nipping at the Nuggets’ heels until finally catching them and clawing ahead by as much as 92-84 with 5:14 left. That was thanks to an 11-3 run highlighted by a pair of 3-point plays by Marjanovic, the 7-foot-3 fan favorite who finished with 18 points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum A big dunk by the biggest man on the floor with 8:32 left in the game cut the Nuggets’ lead to 81-78. His pal Tobias Harris hit a 3-pointer to tie the score at 81-81. And then Gilgeous-Alexander found Marjanovic for another monster flush that lifted most people in the building out of their seats, left the rim rocking for several seconds and gave the Clippers the lead – by three, thanks to Marjanovic’s free throw, made to a smattering of M-V-P chants.“He’s going to play, he’s going to play every night, and on the nights he plays well, he’s going to keep playing,” Coach Doc Rivers said of Marjanovic. “We had him (in) a little too long there. They started adjusting to him on the other end and I thought they hurt us, but overall, he was sensational.”The Clippers’ advantage was largest after Gallinari’s fourth 3-pointer (he was 4 for 7 from behind the arc) and a pair of free throws from Harris that made it 92-84.But the Nuggets answered with a decisive 11-2 spurt of their own.Nikola Jokic gave Denver the lead for good with 1:24 left on a putback off Jamal Murray’s missed jumper. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Gilgeous-Alexander – who also had two rebounds and a steal – became the 20th player in team history to score 10 points or more in his NBA debut.“I thought he did the best job of going downhill, getting into the paint, and either finishing or making plays out,” Rivers said of the Clippers’ prized rookie. “We talked about it all week, too. You can get downhill against them, but they’re a great help team, and the guy driving is probably not gonna get the shot – it’s got to be a pass. Shai stood out as one guy who kept making the right plays.”The Clippers shot just 40 percent from the field, including 8 for 28 from the 3-point line.Jokic, one of his nostrils plugged with gauze for part of the second half, finished with 21 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Gary Harris finished with 20 points, Will Barton added 19 and Millsap had 11 points and 16 rebounds for Denver, which outscored the Clippers 23-6 over the final 5:07.“Opening night, we want to win the game,” Tobias Harris said. “Our fans gave us some great support tonight and really excited us, especially when we made a run. Obviously, the game didn’t go as we had planned, but there are some takeaways we can get better at and grow on.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory center_img Lou Williams’ 3-pointer closed the gap to 103-98 with 22.2 seconds left, but Paul Millsap sank four of four six free-throw attempts as the game wound down to push the final margin to nine.Harris led the Clippers with 19 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots.Beforehand, Rivers said his Clippers – who defeated the Nuggets 109-103 in an exhibition game on Oct. 9 – expected to be fed a steady diet of Jokic, Denver’s dynamic center/facilitator, who averaged 18.5 points and 10.7 rebounds last season.“They’re better than they played last year, but they’re playing that (same) way,” Rivers said. “They’re playing even more through the big fella. I thought last year, they went back and forth playing that way. Watching them in their preseason games, every possession, they’re throwing it to him. I would too, he’s that good.”As anticipated, the Clippers’ centers had their hands full with Jokic, who appeared to get a few of the benefit-of-the-doubt calls that stars often do.Marcin Gortat drew two fouls within the first six minutes and Harrell picked up two in his six first-half minutes, paving the way for Marjanovic to come in and give the Clippers eight points and five rebounds in six minutes of first-half reinforcement.“I didn’t throw off my rotation, it might have thrown off their rhythm though,” Rivers said of the significant number of foul calls. “The game’s being called tight, it really is. The fans got to watch a lot of free throws tonight and I don’t think that’s very exciting.“It’s not the officials’ fault, it really isn’t,” Rivers continued. “They’ve told us how they’re going to call the game, so you have to adjust. You have to move your feet. That’s what we should be doing anyway, really.”Gallinari had 16 points and eight rebounds and Williams had 14 points and five assists.Related Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates last_img read more

President Trump Cracks Down on Violence with “Overwhelming Force, Domination”

first_imgTrump says it’s his job to do whatever it takes to protect the American people. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo mocked the president and declined to activate the national guard. Police arrest a driver during ongoing looting in the SoHo shopping district on Sunday, May 31, 2020, in New York. Protests were held throughout the city over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)As a result looters trashed Manhattan last night and broke into high-end stores along 5th avenue and the Macy’s flagship store…causing Mayor Bill de Blasio to move the curfew up to 8 pm. After calling for strong federal action to keep American streets safe amid protests President Trump is patting himself on the back, saying Washington, DC had “no problems” overnight while making “many arrests” during ongoing protests. Last night Trump told the nation that he will take matters into his own hands if governors and mayors don’t. Trump is threatening to deploy active duty military forces against violent protesters if local governments don’t get the rioting and looting under control. Tuesday, Trump tweeted that the situation in Minneapolis was “also great” and added — “Overwhelming force. Domination.” All this a week after the brutal death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis police.D.C. had no problems last night. Many arrests. Great job done by all. Overwhelming force.

Obama Authorizes ‘Experimental Drug’ to Be Used on Doctors Borbor & Ireland

first_imgUnited States President Barack H. Obama has authorized the use of the experimental drug used on two American nationals, who contracted the deadly Ebola virus disease in Liberia, to be used on two Liberian doctors, who, too, are fighting for their survivals after also contracting the virus, an Executive Mansion release said.Doctors Abraham Borbor and Philip Ireland of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Sinkor, would be the first Liberians to try the new drug, which has only been used on three individuals—two in the US and one in Europe.  The drug’s trial, which has raised serious political and medical debate in Liberia, was firstly used on Samaritan Purse Dr. Kent Brantly and Nurse Nancy Writebol, both of whom are US citizens. A third US citizen, Mr. Patrick Sawyer, who also had a Liberian citizenship, died of the disease in Nigeria.  The third person that it was announced the drug would be tried on is a 75-year-old Spanish national, Father Miguel Pajares, who, too, contracted the virus in Liberia, while working at the Liberia Catholic Church-run St. Joseph Catholic Hospital in Monrovia. He has since been flown back to his native Spain.According to the Executive Mansion, the White House and the United States Food and Drug Administration, Monday, August 11, approved the request for sample doses of experimental serum to treat doctors Borbor and Ireland.The approval of the trail is in response to an August 8, 2014 communication sent to President Barrack Obama by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in which she requested the experimental serum to be used on the affected Liberian doctors.The Executive Mansion said the experimental drugs are to be brought in the country by a representative of the U.S. Government later this week.In a related development, the United Nations Undersecretary and Executive Director of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, has authorized the dispatch of additional doses of the experimental serum to Liberia to support the treatment of affected doctors. The experimental serum from WHO will be brought in by one of its experts later this week.Health Min GwenigaleMeanwhile, before this announcement came in late Monday evening, Liberia Health and Social Welfare Minister, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale had earlier painted the possibility to Liberian lawmakers of Liberia receiving the Ebola virus experimental drug.Appearing before the Liberian Senate on Monday together with other heads of Ministries and Agencies making up the Ebola Task Force, Minister Gwenigale said his Ministry has found the company that is manufacturing the drug, and that efforts are underway to get it from them, “and it is possible that we can get some of that drug.” “Yesterday,” Dr. Gwenigale continued: “I was able to find the company, and talked to them (scientists) and they said if I do certain things, they will be able to see what they could do. When we made the formal request they said because this drug is not yet approved for use, for treating people, they have to get permission from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States before they can send it to us. So I think the FDA has said that it can come; we had to talk to one of our former Ambassadors accredited here who is now a diplomat in charge of African Affairs at the State Department.”Minister Gwenigale had also informed the Senate at the Special Extraordinary Session that his Ministry has decided to separate the Ebola response from regular health activities, according to him, his Ministry has not been paying attention to other things that people are dying from.“This morning, I wrote a memo designating Tolbert Nyenswah, Assistance Minister for Preventive Services to be the person that will response to Ebola questions, and he will be helped by our partners that are helping us. Dr. Bernice Dahn, who is the Chief Medical Officer will go back to try to rebuild our health system and deal with those issues that have nothing to do with Ebola.” Dr. Gwenigale further disclosed that more help is now coming from the World Health Organization (WHO), US Disaster Relief and from the US CDC.Regarding the provision of attractive salary and incentives for health workers, who are considered as frontline soldiers, Dr. Gwenigale said money needed to help the health workers is a budgetary matter that can be addressed by the Legislature. “If they put in the budget the amount of US$100 per person, I will be happy, but we calculated that and it went to US$10 million, minus other needs such as medicine for the health centers and clinics.”Travel BanPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has suspended all travel by government officials who are part of the Executive Branch of Government with immediate effect.According to an Executive Mansion release these include government officials of all Ministries, Agencies, Public Corporations, Commissions, and Parastatals that are under the Executive Branch for a period of one month.The Liberian leader has also instructed all government officials currently out of the country, whether on government or private visit, to return home within a week or be considered as abandoning their jobs.She is urging all government officials of the Executive Branch to take due note of this directive.Other Appearance at the SenateAlso appearing at the session Monday, Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai told the Senators that the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) came into picture as members of the Joint Security Task Force, with the mandate among other things, to ensure that the unprotected movement of citizens is managed, in the wake of the State of Emergency declared by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.During the containment, Defense Minister Samukai said the Army at the various checkpoints will among other stringent measures provide uninhibited movement of the health workers, members of the international community, diplomatic corps, government officials, all of which are to be screened without exception at those locations and allowed passage.The Army will also allow movement of humanitarian goods, as well as rice, fuels and other necessities to locations that may be needed; and the commander insight might use his discretion on those issues he considers emergency to save life.Minister Samukai confirmed the existence of long queues of vehicles at the Klay Checkpoint in Bomi County, and St. Paul Bridge between Bong and Lofa Counties. “We have no intention to allow those vehicles to pass; they need to wait for the next 21 days to hear what the health workers will tell them about the all-is-clear signal. Other than that we have no intention to allow those vehicles to pass. We will appreciate that no one calls from the public; from anywhere to us to want to grant special access or pass to anyone, we will refuse. I want to say that it is not out of disrespect, but just that all of us are Liberians can be a part of this one effort to contain this virus.”He said it is not possible to manage Ebola cases if there is an outbreak in every sector of the society; and that it will not be possible for the security to provide the kind of assistance needed if containment is not put in place.Meanwhile, there has been a suggestion by the health authorities that the Southeast of the country which is yet to be affected by the Ebola virus, to be cut off from the counties that are currently fighting the epidemic.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Amara Konneh Calls for More Resources for Ebola

first_imgLiberia’s Finance and Development Planning Minister Amara M. Konneh and delegation have concluded  constructive country-level discussions with the officials of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other development partners, aimed at mobilizing support for the government’s fight against the  Ebola epidemic.In conversations with the World Bank, Konneh requested that the institution and other development partners use their convening powers to assist Liberia in raising additional resources to fight Ebola and also to support the country’s economic recovery plan.For more than a week, Minister Konneh and his  delegation, including Central Bank Executive Governor Dr. J. Mills Jones, the president of the Liberia Bank for Investment and Development (LBDI, John B. S. Davies III, Representative Munah Pelham-Youngblood, amongst others, have been in Washington DC working to make Liberia’s case for more support to be provided expeditiously to stop the killer virus and its destructive impacts on the nation.The delegation articulated clearly that Liberia was looking for new avenues of support to fight Ebola and deal with probable associated economic and social issues. The Liberian Team requested bilateral and multilateral partners to not re-program existing commitments but rather provide injection of new funds.Minister Konneh said the discussions were fruitful and Liberia was able to make a strong case for the World Bank to provide additional assistance following the provision of US$52 million of crisis funds last month.“We are aiming to raise around $50 million dollars as direct support and we hope our key projects will be accelerated, including work on the Redlight to Gbarnga road, and feasibility studies on the Ganta to Tappita road.”Minister Konneh also met with the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Raj Shah, who assured him that every support will be provided to help stop the transmission of Ebola.Discussions were also held with the Millennium Challenge Corporation over a possible funding window that could be harnessed to accelerate Liberia’s economic stabilization and recovery.Discussions with the IMF focused on additional support beyond the recent US$48 million dollars under the Extended Credit Facility program to be channeled through the Central Bank of Liberia.Representations were also made for additional commitments under the Rapid Credit Facility (RCF).The Managing Director of the IMF, Madam Christine Lagarde, suggested to her colleagues that there is a need for more budgetary support for Liberia as short-term spending is critical during these difficult times.In the United States, Minister Konneh consummated a deal worth US$27 million dollars with the European Investment Bank (EIB) for the rehabilitation of the Roberts International Airport runway. EIB also expressed willingness to work together on future pipeline projects.In meeting with the Swedish International Development Office, Minister Konneh pleaded with the Swedes to increase their support to Liberia, beyond the US $10 million dollars committed through International Non-Governmental Organizations.In a related development, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) has agreed to provide an immediate injection of roughly US$15 million to the banking sector for trade financing.The IFC is also actively exploring ways to provide financing to small businesses, particularly in the Agriculture sector.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Petroleum Prices Reduce on the Market

first_imgThe Ministry of Commerce and Industry, in close consultation with the management of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC), has announced a reduction in pump prices of gasoline and diesel (fuel oil) on the Liberian market.The reduction is quite good news for the entire country as there would be a boost to the transport and other sectors involved in the use of petroleum products as it relates to reduction in prices, several commercial drivers told the Daily Observer yesterday.In a price circular signed by Commerce Minister Axel M. Addy and LPRC Managing Director Sumo Kupee, the price of gasoline has been reduced from US$3.06 to US$2.91 or its Liberian dollar equivalent of L$275 (which represents a US$0.15 cent reduction) while the retail pump price for a gallon of diesel has also decreased from US$3.08 to U$2.98 or its Liberian dollar equivalent of L$280.The prices in Liberian dollars were calculated using the Central Banks’ approved exchange rate of US$1 to L$94. The new petroleum price ceiling circular issued yesterday by LPRC and Commerce took effect as of Monday, August 1. The decision to reduce the prices of petroleum products on the market, according to them, is a result of a downward shift in the perimeter that is usually used to determine the prices of products in the country.The LPRC statement expressed gratitude to all stakeholders, particularly those in the downstream sector of the petroleum industry, for their commitment to adhering to the price adjustment formula.Meanwhile, the Ministry of Commerce Inspectorate Team will be closely monitoring the approved petroleum price structures to avoid any arbitrary hike in the pump price on the market.

Messi stare World Cup exit after Croatia loss

first_imgThe Group D defeat means Argentina have just one point from two games, meaning they will probably have to beat Nigeria in their last game and hope other results go their way to avoid elimination.The result left Argentinian fans in tears inside the Nizhny Novgorod stadium, while Diego Maradona watched from the stands in stunned disbelief.Croatia took the lead after a horrendous blunder by Argentine goalkeeper Willy Caballero in the 53rd minute, the stopper chipping a clearance straight to Rebic who lashed home a thunderous volley.Real Madrid star Modric then produced an electrifying 80th-minute goal before Messi’s Barcelona team-mate Rakitic completed the scoring after Croatia sliced apart Argentina’s hapless defence in injury time.The defeat leaves the Argentinians facing an ignominious repeat of their 2002 campaign when they also went out at the group stage after being tipped as possible World Cup winners.All the attention after the 3-0 defeat will focus on Argentina and Messi but it was also the result of a fine performance by Croatia.A curiously lifeless and uninspired Argentine display was capped off by Caballero’s mistake when he somehow managed to chip the ball just a few yards to Croatia’s Rebic, following a Gabriel Mercado backpass.Rebic volleyed home with aplomb but veteran Caballero will have nightmares for the rest of his days at his mistake — likely to feature in any list of worst goalkeeping blunders for some time.And throughout it all Messi, arguably the world’s best player, remained a peripheral and largely ponderous figure, briefly flashing to life on too few occasions.The 30-year-old’s dream of winning the World Cup now look remote.With all the pre-match attention on Messi it was his Real Madrid counterpart Luka Modric who provided the game’s true flashes of genius.The Croatian was the one player to find space and time in a bruising encounter and it was his moment of magic in the second half which settled the encounter.Picking the ball up some 25 yards outside the Argentina area, Modric had the option of at least two passes but chose to bide his time before planting a fantastic shot past a hapless Caballero.Rakitic added a third when the game was up for Argentina.They had only threatened briefly before then to equalise with Meza and Messi almost scrambling in a goal in the 64th minute.Beyond that Argentina looked largely clueless, and increasingly frustrated by Croatia.They could have taken the lead in the  first half but Enzo Perez missed pretty much an open goal from just 12 yards in the 30th minute.It was to be Argentina’s only shot of the half — and their best chance all evening.Croatia went when Mario Mandzukic headed inexplicably wide in the 33rd minute from just three yards.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Argentina’s Lionel Messi, right, and Croatia’s Marcelo Brozovic, left. Photo/APNIZHNIY NOVGOROD, Russia, June 21 – Lionel Messi’s World Cup dream was left hanging by a thread as Croatia powered into the last 16 with a 3-0 rout of Argentina here Thursday.Second-half goals from Ante Rebic, Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic sealed a deserved victory as a poor Argentina were left on the brink of a humiliating first round exit.last_img read more

Mayor blind to disasters under Boks

first_imgEARLIER this month, two years after Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appointed me as a commissioner on the board of Los Angeles Animal Services, I gave him my resignation. I had no other recourse than to leave this volunteer position because Jimmy Blackman, the mayor’s deputy chief of staff, pressured me to “be quiet” (or else) about serious problems at LAAS and its animal shelters. To preserve my integrity and my pledge to help animals, I proactively chose the “or else” option. Villaraigosa denies such intimidation and publicly dismissed my well-supported concerns with the same disregard he has treated his first two years in office. The public controversy over LAAS was heightened on Aug. 21, when the mayor issued an unexpected press release, boldly proclaiming, “Mayor Villaraigosa announces animal services as number-one public animal adoption agency in U.S.” LAAS not only isn’t the top animal-adoption agency in the U.S., but it is not even “No. 1” in Los Angeles County. Instead of going through the proper channels, Boks circumvented the LAAS Commission on which I sat, the Personnel Department, the employees union, the City Attorney’s Office and even the City Council itself, which railed against Boks and ultimately put the idea on a back burner. There are dozens of other examples I could cite here, such as the still-unopened spay/neuter clinics paid for by taxpayers via Proposition F; claiming a “no-kill month” in March while actually killing more than 600 animals; the lack of foreign-language outreach to the communities that need it the most; the nearly 100 shelter-job openings that remain unfilled as of today; and his ill-advised use of the city’s Web site to promote a bikini contest at Hooters. Or the spray-painted elephant “art” exhibit that Boks permitted, for which he later had to publicly apologize. I presented to Blackman a list of Boks’ incidents compiled by a group of concerned citizens. The list was 10 pages long. He dismissively flipped the pages and said that he was aware of the issues but didn’t care. Blackman’s disregard for the list was echoed by Commission President Tariq Khero. Blackman did not even keep the list. Without reading it, he would not know if he was indeed aware of every issue it addressed. This is the deputy chief of staff to Villaraigosa, a paid city employee who is supposed to help the mayor better serve our city. If I had one last chance to speak with Villaraigosa, I would quote the Ed Boks-like character in “The Music Man”: “Either you are closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge, or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated.” Marie Atake is a former L.A. Animal Services commissioner and founder of Forte Animal Rescue, www.FARescue.org.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! After KABC’s (Channel 7) “Eyewitness News” featured a story on my resignation last week, in which three other city officials echoed my concerns, Ed Boks, the controversial LAAS general manager hired by Villaraigosa in 2005, suddenly changed that claim to “fifth in the nation,” which is also questionable. Such a sudden shift speaks volumes not just about the mayor, but about Boks himself. Boks came to L.A. after New York City unanimously denied him a contract renewal after just two years there. On Feb. 19, New York Magazine looked back on Boks’ brief New York stint, writing, “So what happened? Animal workers unanimously point to former Animal Care and Control Director Ed Boks, who served from 2003 to 2005. One alliance member snipes, `Boks’ programs had catchy names, but they had no substance and weren’t sustainable.”‘ Had Blackman done his homework on Boks for the mayor, he would have anticipated the sleight of hand that Boks might bring to Los Angeles. For instance, on Aug. 31, 2002, Boks misrepresented his credentials in an article in The Arizona Republic, claiming he “worked his way through … Wayne State University.” The school says he dropped out. Most recently, Boks tried to sell the L.A. City Council on an innovative plan created by a rescuer to start a program that would put parolees to work helping to train pit bulls. Not dangerous parolees or pit bulls, mind you; just the ones with great potential. last_img

Everton 0-2 Arsenal: Iwobi and Welbeck keep Gunners’ title hopes alive

first_img3 It was almost two soon after as the busy Sanchez was denied by Robles having been allowed too much room to shoot on the edge of the Everton box.With the in-form Romelu Lukaku well-marshalled, Everton were struggling to create any chances and struggling to contain Arsenal’s pacy attack.And it was little surprise when Arsene Wenger’s side made it two five minutes before the break through Iwobi.The youngster, preferred ahead of Theo Walcott after impressing against Barcelona in midweek, marked his full league debut in style as he raced on to Hector Bellerin’s ball over the top and fired past Robles. Alex Iwobi scored on his first Premier League start as Arsenal kept their title hopes alive with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.The 19-year-old added to Danny Welbeck’s early opener to help the Gunners close the gap on leaders Leicester to eight points.It was an impressive display from the visitors, who had gone three league games without a win ahead of their trip to Merseyside and been dumped out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the past week.Everton had made a bright start with Seamus Coleman hitting the outside of the post with just over a minute on the clock.But Arsenal quickly wrestled control and Welbeck struck the woodwork before making the crucial breakthrough on seven minutes.Alexis Sanchez was the architect; the Chilean combining well with Mesut Ozil and playing a superbly-timed pass into the path of Welbeck, who coolly rounded Joel Robles before slotting home. 3 A 2-0 lead was the least Arsenal deserved and Everton boss Roberto Martinez would have been demanding a major improvement at the break.But the Toffees were little better in the second half and a fightback never looked on the cards as they failed to create any chances of note.Arsenal were content to keep hold of the ball and frustrate their hosts and they comfortably closed out a 2-0 victory to reignite their title charge.

Man’s car became airborne during high-speed Garda pursuit

first_imgA Letterkenny man has been ordered to do 120 hours community service after what was described as an “appalling case” involving a high-speed chase through areas of the town.Gardai had detected John McKelvey of Correnagh driving at a speed of 147 kms in a 100km zone when they were operating a speed check-point at Dromore on January 25th last. A previous sitting of the court had heard that the 21-year-old defendant, who faced five charges of dangerous driving, had failed to slow down and had continued on in the direction of Lurgybrack.Gardai reported that he had been travelling at 115 km as they approached a humpback bridge and the car had become airborne.The defendant had continued on driving at between 110 and 120 kms per hour before Gardai decided to stop pursuing it as it was deemed unsafe.Shortly afterwards, Garda Kilcoyne spotted the defendant’s vehicle, a black Corsa, having crashed into a ditch. McKelvey had subsequently been arrested at just after 3.a.m. following the 18 km pursuit.Defendant’s solicitor, Patsy Gallagher said his client understood that his behaviour could have resulted in a fatality.He had observed the blue lights of the Garda patrol car and had subsequently panicked.Addressing Letterkenny District Court, Judge Paul Kelly said it was an “appalling case” involved a pursuit that had lasted up to thirteen minutes at high speed.Mr Gallagher told the court that his client had undertaken the Pro-Social Drivers course which had been “extremely beneficial” to him. “He has learned his lesson and the Probation Report on him is good.”McKelvey is now residing and working in Waterford.Judge Kelly agreed that the Probation Report had been “very positive” and noted that the defendant had completed the Pro-Social Drivers course.He ordered him to undertake 80 hours of community service in relation to one of the charges while disqualifying him from driving for two years.He further imposed 40 hours of community service on a second charge with a disqualification period of two years.The charges are to run consecutively.Man’s car became airborne during high-speed Garda pursuit was last modified: December 14th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdangerous drivingdonegalGardaiJOhn McKelbeyletterkennylast_img read more

The incredible statistic which proves Argentina captain Lionel Messi is human

Arad Texts Confirm Widespread Literacy in Judah

first_imgAnalysis of 16 texts written on pottery shards confirm that ordinary people were literate in Old Testament times.The Bible is not often mentioned in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. A paper by scholars including Israel Finkelstein (advocate of a late chronology) concludes that ordinary soldiers at a remote desert outpost called Arad were literate. By doing handwriting analysis of inscriptions on 16 pottery shards, they deduced that six different individuals, each of which knew how to write and spell correctly. Rachel Pells writes in The Independent:The writing, dating back to around 600 BC, details nothing extraordinary and consists mostly of shopping lists and broken military commands.  By comparing the different handwriting however, historians were able to deduce that the messages had been written by several different people across a range of social classes.“In other words, the entire army apparatus, from high-ranking officials to humble vice-quartermasters of small desert outposts, was literate,” the academics wrote in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS).What this implies is that Judah had an educational apparatus capable of teaching these representative individuals reading and writing. “We’re dealing with really low-level soldiers in a remote place who can write,” Finkelstein told Live Science. “So there must have been some sort of educational system in Judah at that time.”600 BC was just before the Babylonian Captivity (586 BC). Advocates of the late chronology used to believe that most of the Old Testament was compiled after the return to Jerusalem. This new analysis supports the idea that literacy was widespread earlier, meaning that Judeans were capable of compiling lengthy Biblical texts before the invasion. The paper states,The spread of literacy in late-monarchic Judah provides a possible stage setting for the compilation of literary works. True, biblical texts could have been written by a few and kept in seclusion in the Jerusalem Temple, and the illiterate populace could have been informed about them in public readings and verbal messages by these few (e.g., 2 Kings 23:2, referring to the period discussed here). However, widespread literacy offers a better background for the composition of ambitious works such as the Book of Deuteronomy and the history of Ancient Israel in the Books of Joshua to Kings (known as the Deuteronomistic History), which formed the platform or Judahite ideology and theology (e.g., ref. 25).Arad is a desert outpost west of the southern tip of the Dead Sea. The paper did not make clear if these ostraca are new discoveries or re-analyses of existing finds from the site. The inscriptions mention the “king of Judah” and “the house of YHWH” (the temple)—a reference to the first temple built by Solomon, validating its existence.Of course people were literate back then. This is a small acknowledgement by liberals that Old Testament people were not stupid. Other inscriptions and texts date back even further. Conservatives believe Moses wrote the Pentateuch in 1440 BC, many centuries before, very probably relying on earlier texts for Genesis from records kept by the patriarchs and possibly even by texts kept by Noah from the antediluvian world. These are long, complex books, full of details, names, events and places that can often be independently corroborated. God told Moses to command the people to write His word and wear it on their wrists and foreheads. He commanded them to teach their children His laws and statutes. It assumes they knew how to read and write.And, of course, there is the matter of inspiration. God is, and always has been, a communicator of His revelation to mankind. He created people as intelligent communicators from the beginning. What is surprising is not that soldiers in Arad were literate in 600 B.C., but that skeptics continue to doubt the clear evidence of the Bible itself after so many repeated falsifications of their skepticism. That skepticism often takes its root from evolutionary beliefs that people were gradually becoming intelligent from their ape-like past. For many examples of extraordinary knowledge among ancient peoples, see Bruce Malone’s fascinating book Brilliant: Made in the Image of God.

California Chrome Misses Triple Crown

first_imgNEW YORK — California Chrome failed in his bid to win the first Triple Crown in 36 years on June 7, losing the Belmont Stakes to long shot Tonalist and leaving his owner to complain others took “the coward’s way out” by skipping the first two legs of the Triple Crown.Before tens of thousands hoping to see history, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner finished in a dead-heat for fourth with Wicked Strong. California Chrome’s loss extended the longest drought without a Triple Crown champion.California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn was bitter about horses skipping the first two legs and then stealing the Belmont. Six of the last eight Belmont winners did just that.“That’s the coward’s way out,” he said. “It’s not fair to these horses that have been in the game since day one. If you don’t make enough points to get into the Kentucky Derby, you can’t run in the other two races. It’s all or nothing.”Coburn thought the other 10 horses ganged up on California Chrome, who was second early, dropped to fourth and then fifth before dead-heating for fourth. Photos after the race showed Chrome also had a bloody gash on his right front foot, a minor injury that may have hurt his chances.Coburn voiced a similar complaint after the Preakness, saying only the 20 horses that run in the Kentucky Derby should be eligible to compete in the other two legs. He also believed that horses skipping the Preakness should not be allowed to return in the Belmont.Coburn had been in a festive mood earlier in the day, waving his cream-colored cowboy hat to fans and signing items they tossed to him in his box seat. But the mood turned ugly after the race.Three tough races in five weeks proved too demanding for California Chrome, who was sent off as the heavy 4-5 favorite. Affirmed remains the most recent Triple Crown winner in 1978.The raucous crowd of 102,199 — the third-largest in Belmont history — was silenced when it became obvious that California Chrome lacked his usual punch in the stretch.Jockey Victor Espinoza realized long before then that his chestnut colt wasn’t up to the grueling 1 1/2-mile trip around the track’s sweeping turns. “As soon as he came out of the gate, he wasn’t the same,” Espinoza said.Alan Sherman, the son and assistant to trainer Art Sherman, agreed. “When Victor started to squeeze on him, he didn’t respond,” he said. “He was wore out, I think.” Once the official result was posted, fans sat in stunned silence before heading to the exits.Penny Chenery, the 92-year-old owner of 1973 Triple Crown champion Secretariat, had been ready to welcome a new member to the exclusive club. She and others with ties to previous Triple Crown winners came to watch what they hoped would beCalifornia Chrome’s big day.“I’m very disappointed that we didn’t have a Triple Crown winner, but I’m happy for the winners,” she said.Tonalist, the fifth wagering choice at 9-1 odds, was a fresh and rested horse making his debut on the Triple Crown trail. He last ran and won the Peter Pan Stakes over the same Belmont dirt on May 10.Tonalist beat Commissioner, another newcomer to the Triple Crown, by a head. Those two horses finished in the same order in the Peter Pan. Tonalist ran the distance in 2:28.52 and paid $20.40, $9.60 and $7.Commissioner returned $23.20 and $13.20, while Medal Count was another length back in third and paid $13.20 to show.Samraat was sixth, followed by General a Rod, Matterhorn, Commanding Curve, Matuszak and Ride On Curlin.California Chrome broke quickly but was pressed immediately by Commissioner and General a Rod. Espinoza eased California Chrome back into third along the rail.Approaching the final turn, California Chrome was maneuvered to the outside. He angled four-wide turning for home, just to the outside of Tonalist, who was close to the pace the entire race. Espinoza started whipping left-handed in the lane butCalifornia Chrome had no response.“I thought he was gaining ground, but he didn’t have it in him, apparently,” Coburn said.Tonalist joined the growing list of Triple Crown spoilers, making California Chrome the 12th horse since Affirmed to lose his Triple try in the Belmont, the longest race in the series. In 2012, I’ll Have Another won the first two legs, but was scratched the day before the Belmont with a career-ending tendon injury.“The Triple Crown itself, obviously it’s tough,” winning trainer Christophe Clement said. “If it would be easier to do it, then it would mean nothing.”Tonalist was making just his fifth career start. “We actually thought he finished second, but we got lucky, he won,” Clement said. “It was great.”California Chrome’s rise from a humble pedigree and his working-stiff owners resonated with sports fans who rarely take an interest in horse racing.His owners spent $8,000 on a mare they bred to a stallion for $2,500, and were called “dumb asses” by a trainer for buying a mare who gave no indication that she could produce a standout offspring who could run fast.Conditions seemed aligned for the Triple Crown drought to end. California Chromethrived during his three-week stay at Belmont Park. His chestnut coat gleamed and he gained weight after the Preakness on May 17. His owners, trainer and jockey oozed confidence.But this fairy tale didn’t have a happy ending. Espinoza lost his second chance at a Triple Crown. He was aboard War Emblem in 2002, when that colt stumbled at the start of the Belmont and lost all chance.“The horse tried, that’s all I can ask for. He took me on the ride of my life, I’ll always have that in my heart for that horse,” trainer Art Sherman said.Coburn, who with Perry Martin formed Dumb Ass Partners to race their one-horse stable, had vowed that California Chrome “would go down in history.” It just wasn’t the kind they wanted to make.___BETH HARRIS, AP Racing Writer.

Staggering number of suicides leads to MOU between Innu and Newfoundland

first_img(Left to right: Innu Nation Deputy Grand Chief Simeon Tshakapesh, Innu Nation Grand Chief Anastasia Qupee, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball, Mushuau Chief John Nui, and Sheshatshiu Chief Eugene Hart.)Todd Lamirande APTN National NewsNewfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball and four Innu leaders signed an agreement to hold an inquiry into the “treatment, experiences and outcomes” of Innu youth in care by the end of September.Ball characterized it as an “aggressive timeline.”“When you look at the numbers, they’re staggering,” he said. “Disproportionate numbers of suicide rates, disproportionate number of children in care. We know, and I know, feeling this for a while now, that we really need to get together in an inclusive way to get to what the root problems are. And then from that, we can establish how we get to putting the proper preventative measures in place in Innu communities.”The memorandum of understanding states that by July 31, 2017, the terms of reference for the inquiry will be agreed upon. However, Ball could not say if it would be a full public inquiry conducted in front of a judge.“This is about preventing youth and children from going into care and making sure we have the wraparound services in Innu communities that are ultimately appropriate,” he said.Innu Nation Deputy Grand Chief Simeon Tshakapesh was happy with the outcome.“I am very proud being Innu today,” he posted on Facebook. “Innu from Labrador has prevailed today through all our pain that’s why we are successful today. I have fought along with other former leaders and present leaders so many years for our people. Now I can see the real hard work paid off.”It was the suicide of Tshakapesh’s son, Thunderheart, this past May that brought the issue to the forefront. Tshakapesh and Innu Nation Grand Chief Anastasia Qupee confronted Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett at a July 1st barbeque in her Toronto constituency. (Simeon Tshakapesh, with his son Thunderheart.)An emotional Tshakapesh yelled at Bennet that he wanted his son back.“Stop stealing our children. Yes, stop it,” he shouted. “Something gotta end. We can’t keep burying our own.”Thunderheart, 16, took his own life after being sent out from his community in Labrador, Natuashish, for solvent abuse.“My son had a life and a dream. And that dream is killed by the system,” Tshakapesh told Bennett.She said his death was unacceptable and promised to change it.“How can we protect our future when they are so far away from us?” Qupee asked Bennett. “There’s broken connections that are being done by this government. And it’s hurting us. We’re the leaders. Yet, we’re the ones that go home to all the pain and suffering in our communities.”After nearly half an hour of discussion, Minister Bennett handed Tshakapesh a small pouch of tobacco. In exchange, Tshakapesh gave Bennett the protest sign he was holding, with the condition that he will hold the Indigenous Affairs Minister to her word.“I may be gone, but this still going to exist,” he said while holding up the tobacco. “And this is gonna be turned back to you and what you said here.”The MOU does ask the federal government to participate in the Inquiry.“But even without federal participation, we made an agreement that we are going to pursue,” said Premier Ball.In pictures posted on Facebook by his father, Thunderheart enjoyed hunting and playing the guitar. His first demo was posted on YouTube on March 24, 2017. [email protected]last_img read more

Sri Lanka has strong support

The High Commissioner said this in a statement where he also confirmed that British Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague will be attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Sri Lanka in November. The Commonwealth biennial meeting in November this year, will be preceded by the Commonwealth People’s Forum, the Commonwealth Youth Forum, and the Commonwealth Business Forum, and usually attracts several thousand delegates, and global media coverage. It will provide the opportunity for the 54 Heads to meet to discuss matters of global and Commonwealth concern, and agree collective policies and initiatives. Sri Lanka enjoys strong support amongst the Commonwealth countries, represented by the Board of Governors of the Commonwealth Secretariat, comprising the 54 London-based Commonwealth High Commissioners, Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to the UK Dr Chris Nonis said.He also recalled the unwavering support of all except one Country, at recent meetings, which he says necessitates a depth and breadth of understanding that Commonwealth countries are at different stages of development, with a commonality of values and aspirations, as well as challenges and constraints. The High Commissioner said that although there had been intensive lobbying in the past year by anti-Sri Lanka activist groups with collateral agendas, in particular in London, which is home to the Commonwealth Secretariat, they had not succeeded in their attempts to pressurize Commonwealth Nations to shift the venue, nor to pressurise the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group to place Sri Lanka on its formal agenda.

Joy Global introduces new rotary blasthole drill for hard rock applications

first_imgJoy Global has added to its rotary blasthole drill product offering to provide a wider range of solutions for hard rock applications. The new P&H 285XPC provides up to 53,524 kg (118,000 lbs) of bit loading specifically designed for 270 and 311 mm (10 5/8 in and 12 ¼ in) diameter holes, making it well suited for the majority of copper and iron applications. “This new drill will carry on the P&H legacy for durability,” stated Eric Wilkinson, Product Manager. “It will feature the same powerful propel structures and robust pulldown systems as our other P&H drills.”The new drill also features the Universal Drill Cab (UDC) utilised on other P&H drills.

Additionally, the FOPS Level II certified structure combined with shatter-resistant glass protects the operator from harsh mining conditions. The 285XPC is already available worldwide.last_img read more

The Prop is a beautiful portable laptop stand that needs to get

first_imgLaptops allow us access to computing on the go. You could argue that smartphones and tablets do the same thing, but I’d argue both are very much limited compared to the laptop. However, choosing to work on a laptop comes with a number of compromises based on what you can easily fit alongside one in a bag.Light and thin laptops are now offered by several well-known manufacturers with Apple leading the way. You can get a wireless mouse to throw in there alongside one, and Microsoft’s Arc mouse goes a step further by lying flat for transport. There’s even a few options for carrying slim and light power packs around, and hopefully one day soon a foldaway plug too.One accessory that hasn’t been catered for yet as a portable product is the laptop stand. It may not sound like something you need to take with you, but typing for extended periods of time with your laptop keyboard at the right angle in a stand can make all the difference to your wrists, fingers, and even your posture.MAKE Collaboration has spotted a niche for creating the ultimate portable laptop stand, and their design is called the Prop. The only problem is, they need funding to produce it, so have setup a Kickstarter fund in the hopes of raising the $18,000 required for the plastic injection mold plates.There are so many tech-related Kickstarter funds now that you have to pick and choose which ones to highlight. However, just by looking at the images of the Prop (and the video below), you can tell this is a very clever and useful product worth bringing to market.It will be manufactured from a bio-degradable plastic material and takes the form of two very thin and light sections. These clip together to form a stand base that is flexible enough to hold any laptop between 13 and 17-inches in size. For transport, you just unclip them and lie them flat in your bag, and I doubt you’ll even notice their weight.So the Prop is lightweight, easy to store in your bag taking up next to no room, and the design aesthetic is such that it is probably going to make your laptop look all the better on that Starbucks table or airport lounge desk. But what about the cost?Based on the pledges being asked for through Kickstarter, the Prop is going to be super cheap to buy. Just $18 secures you one if funding is successful, and you can pick up two by pledging $34. That’s not to say this is the final pricing, but I can’t see it being far off once the manufacturing is setup and running.So far the Kickstarter drive has raised over $5,000 with it running until November 20th. Hopefully MAKE Collaboration can reach that $18,000 target and give us all the option of a very cheap and stylish portable laptop stand to throw in our bags.Read more at the Prop Kickstarter page and MAKE Collaborationlast_img read more

Make walking in the rain musical with the 8bit umbrella

first_imgThere’s something about the sound of rain that is quite enjoyable for a lot of people. It can even help you concentrate by forming background noise. If you don’t believe me, just plug in some headphones and start listening while trying to do some work.Being out in the rain is fine too as long as you have an umbrella, but Alice Zappe decided she could improve on the experience by adding music. During Made @Musichackday this year in Amsterdam she hooked up an 8-bit sound system to an umbrella.The umbrella has a number of piezo sensors fitted to the underside of the farbic. They react to the raindrops making an impact and therefore applying pressure, with each being turned into an 8-bit sound using an Arduino Uno and output through a couple of speakers. As you can see in the video, the more intense the rainfall the more sound that is produced.Although it works, the “music” created isn’t going to top any charts. However, such a system could easily be modified to play pre-recorded songs whenever it rains to block out the sound of the shower. Alternatively, you could add a recording unit just in case you get that perfect shower and manage to produce a song worth keeping. Who knows, there might be a market for an 8-bit rain album.Alice’s other projects include adding a green LED backlight to an original Game Boy so it’s easier to view in the dark (and make music with), as well as a point-and-click game created in JavaScript that was inspired by Maniac Mansion. I can’t wait to see what she thinks up for the next Music Hack Day.via Nukacolast_img read more

North Korea fires another missile Trump tweets his anger

first_img By AFP 23,185 Views Saturday 29 Apr 2017, 7:45 AM US President Donald Trump Source: Evan Vucci/AP/Press Association ImagesNORTH KOREA TEST-FIRED a ballistic missile today in apparent defiance of a concerted US push for tougher international sanctions to curb Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons ambitions.The latest launch, which South Korea said was a failure, came just hours after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned the UN Security Council of “catastrophic consequences” if the international community — most notably China — failed to pressure the North into abandoning its weapons programme.Military options for dealing with the North were still “on the table”, Tillerson warned in his first address to the UN body.The launch ratchets up tensions on the Korean peninsula, with Washington and Pyongyang locked in an ever-tighter spiral of threat, counter-threat, and escalating military preparedness.US President Donald Trump, who has warned of a “major conflict” with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s regime, said the latest test was a pointed snub to China — the North’s main ally and economic lifeline.“North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!” Trump tweeted. Source: TwitterThe US is deploying a naval strike group led by an aircraft carrier to the Korean peninsula, and a missile-defence system called Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) that officials say will be operational “within days”.North Korea recently conducted its biggest-ever firing drill and has threatened to “bury at sea” the US aircraft carrier, and there are signs it could be preparing for a sixth nuclear test.South Korea’s defence ministry said it suspected today’s missile test had failed after a brief flight, while the US military’s Pacific Command confirmed the rocket did not leave North Korean territory.Japan has lodged a “serious protest and criticism” to the North, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters after a national security council meeting.Risk of nuclear attack ‘real’ China pushed back at Tillerson’s call at the UN Security Council for it to do more to rein in Pyongyang, arguing that it was unrealistic to expect one country to solve the conflict.“The use of force does not solve differences and will only lead to bigger disasters,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said.His country, he said, should not be “a focal point of the problem on the peninsula” and stressed that “the key to solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula does not lie in the hands of the Chinese side”.Russia joined China in saying a military response would be disastrous and appealing for a return to talks and de-escalation.Military action was “completely unacceptable”, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the council, and a miscalculation could have “frightening consequences”.But Tillerson argued that diplomacy had to be backed with credible muscle.“Diplomatic and financial levers of power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action, if necessary,” he said.“The threat of a North Korean nuclear attack on Seoul or Tokyo is real, and it is likely only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the US mainland.”China wants talks The meeting of the top UN body yesterday laid bare major differences among key powers over the way to address the North Korean crisis.Over the past 11 years, the Security Council has imposed six sets of sanctions on Pyongyang — two adopted last year — to significantly ramp up pressure and deny the North Korean regime the hard currency revenue needed for its military programmes.But UN sanctions experts have repeatedly told the council the measures have had little impact because they have been poorly implemented.Tillerson called on all countries to downgrade or sever diplomatic relations with North Korea and impose targeted sanctions on entities and individuals supporting its missile and nuclear programme.The United States is ready to impose sanctions on other countries where companies or individuals are found to have helped North Korea’s military programmes, he said.China instead wants Pyongyang to freeze its military programmes in exchange for a halt to US-South Korean annual drills.“Now is the time to seriously consider talks,” said Wang.But Tillerson was blunt in saying it was up to North Korea to take the first concrete steps.“We will not negotiate our way back to the negotiating table,” he said. “We will not reward their bad behaviour with talks.”The United States, Russia and China took part in six-party talks on North Korea’s denuclearisation from 2003 to 2009, along with Japan, South Korea and Pyongyang.- © AFP 2017Read: North Korea reportedly test-fires another ballistic missileRead: ‘He’d still win if the election were today’ – 100 days in, Dublin, California, adjusts to Trump’s ‘new normal’ https://jrnl.ie/3365580 Short URL Apr 29th 2017, 7:45 AM 30 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article North Korea fires another missile, Trump tweets his anger The US President said the move “disrespected the wishes of China”.

Cruise tourism reaches new depths in Dubai

first_imgWelcoming more than 407,000 cruise tourists last year, numbers will increase to around 420,000 for the new season with Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) expecting that number to reach one million by 2020. With Dubai featuring on most of the world’s leading cruise liners’ international itineraries, it continues to reinforce its position as a popular cruise destination, firmly cementing its reputation as the Arabian Gulf’s “cruise hub of the region.” New to the region, MSC Cruises has proudly announced Dubai as its newest home port for their 2013-2014 season itinerary, with the MSC Lirica arriving in November and bringing over 60,000 passengers in its 20 turnaround call. Dubai’s cruise industry continues to flourish with the announcement of MSC Cruises becoming the hub’s newest home porting partner and two Cunard cruise liners due to make an appearance as well. “A combination of careful and strategic planning, marketing initiatives, infrastructure development, targeted investment and Dubai’s appeal as a popular destination, has allowed Dubai to experience robust growth in cruise tourism,” DTCM general manager Veronica Rainbird said.center_img Cunard Line has announced in addition to their overnight Dubai calls in April 2014, both Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth will be returning once again to Dubai as part of their world cruise in 2015.
