Greece starts bank sell-off

first_img Tags: NULL KCS-content Thursday 26 August 2010 8:59 pm Share Greece starts bank sell-off whatsappcenter_img whatsapp GREECE’S government took a step toward offloading its stakes in ATEbank and Hellenic Postbank yesterday when it named Deutsche Bank, HSBC and Lazard as advisers.A statement said the three investment banks would “explore and assess the Greek state’s strategic options, evaluate its holdings in the banking sector and assess the consequences of such options”.Athens needs to raise at least €1bn (£817m) each year between 2011 and 2013 as a condition of its European Union bailout in May. Its 77.3 per cent holding in troubled farm lender ATEbank and 33 per cent stake in healthier Hellenic Postbank are expected to be the first assets on the block after Piraeus Bank, Greece’s fourth-largest lender, offered €701m in cash for the shares.State-owned energy, infrastructure and utilities companies are also expected to be handed over to the private sector over the next three years.Juergen Michels, chief Eurozone economist at Citigroup, told City A.M.: “Everyone knows they’re under pressure to sell, so the worry is they may not get the right prices.”Finance minister George Papaconstantinou said there was “light at the end of the tunnel after months of complete darkness”. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite HeraldTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading BlvdTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Even small start up costs of around £5,000 have knock on effects “leading to large losses in terms of productivity and output,” the report said.Some European countries have “miniscule” start up costs along the same levels as the US, Canada and New Zealand. While rates are low in Denmark, Norway and the UK, countries like Germany, France and Italy have significantly higher barriers to entry, Poschke said.The research, published in the Economic Journal, found that up to one third of the productivity gap between Germany and the US could be due to entry costs.

US revises up number of jobless claims

first_img KCS-content US revises up number of jobless claims Tags: NULL CLAIMS for unemployment benefit in the US have been revised upwards, and came in above the expectations of economists for the latest week of data available.New jobless claims were reported at 382,000 last week, yet the figure should have been 394,000, government sources said yesterday.For the week ending 26 March, 388,000 new benefit claims were made. Economists had expected the figure to drop to around 380,000.The underlying trend, a four-week moving average, rose to 394,000, from 391,000 the previous week.“The revisions suggest that the improvement in labour market conditions over the past three months has been slightly less robust than the previous data indicated,” said Michael Gapen of Barclays Capital.“But overall we characterise the revisions to initial claims data as minor, and they do not alter our view that labour market conditions continue to improve at a modest pace,” Gapen added.There was more disappointing news for the US recovery yesterday, as new factory orders dipped unexpectedly in February, the Commerce Department revealed – reversing three straight months of gains.New orders for manufactured goods fell 0.1 per cent to $446bn (£278bn), after an upwardly revised 3.3 per cent gain in January.Meanwhile, the Chicago purchasing managers’ index slowed to 70.6 in March, down from its 22-year high of 71.2 in February.The index is the last main regional indicator before the national Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing index, and can be used as bellwether for the national manufacturing sector’s health.There was good news in neighbouring Canada, as the manufacturing sector helped stimulate GDP growth of 0.5 per cent for January, Statistics Canada said yesterday.

Scarlets v Edinburgh – Stephen Jones fit again!

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Replacements: Emyr Phillips, Iestyn Thomas, Rhodri Jones, Damian Welch, Ben Morgan, Martin Roberts, Stephen Jones, Lee Williams. “We’re eager to put our record right up in Edinburgh and we’ve changed a few things in terms of our preparations.  We want to go up there and get a result and we know we have a huge challenge on our hands, but we are desperate to continue our momentum in the league.  We don’t want Munster to get too far ahead of us, and want to try and keep ahead of the teams below us.“We know that if we really want to compete this season, we have to come to tough places like Murrayfield and get results, it’s a measure of how much this team has progressed this season and we’ve told the players if they have ambitions to get something from this season, these are the types of games we have to win.“Yes we’ve got the big Leicester game on the horizon next weekend and it’s a massive one for the team and our supporters at home – but you can’t just switch it on for Europe. Consistency in the domestic competition is equally important and if we can get a result this weekend, it will take us into Europe on a better footing.“These Scarlets players are working very hard and want to get the best out of themselves. It’s a very focused and competitive group at the moment and they’re showing real spirit and determination.”The Scarlets have won five of their last six matches in all competitions.They are currently placed 2nd in the Magners League on 36 points.  Edinburgh sit in 7thon 27 points.Edinburgh have won five of their last six matches against Scarlets, and the visitors are yet to win on Edinburgh soil since rugby went regional in 2003. The Scotsmen have strong home form and have won their last five home games at Murrayfield in the Magners League.Scarlets starting XV v Edinburgh, Murrayfield 08/01/2011, kick-off 1830: Morgan Stoddart, Gareth Maule, Regan King, Jon Davies, Sean Lamont, Rhys Priestland, Tavis Knoyle, Phil John, Matthew Rees (capt), Simon Gardiner, Vernon Cooper, Lou Reed, Jonny Fa’amatuainu, Richie Pugh, David Lyons. The Scarlets are intent on putting right their away record up in Edinburgh and on the back of a derby win against the Dragons last weekend will be challenging hard for points to maintain their momentum and position in the Magners League.With competition tight at the top of the league table and only a few points separating teams placed second to fifth, the Scarlets say that their Scottish trip is a vital one to get right.The Scarlets come into Saturday evening’s game off a hard-fought and brave win against derby rivals the Dragons (21-15) on New Year’s Day and have the confidence of some good away form this season with wins on the road against Treviso, London Irish, Cardiff Blues, Newport Gwent Dragons and Aironi.The Scarlets welcome back from injury Wales and British Lions outside half Stephen Jones (bench) and second row Lou Reed who comes straight back into the starting line-up alongside Scarlets stalwart Vernon Cooper.The region is however, without three forwards Ken Owens, Josh Turnbull and Rob McCusker who failed late fitness tests and are being rested with minor injuries; Owens (neck), Turnbull (shoulder), McCusker (shoulder).Wales Sevens star Richie Pugh gets his first start of the season at flanker with flair player Samoan international Jonny Fa’amatuainu continuing with a run of games for the Scarlets in the back row.In the backs, Morgan Stoddart moves to fullback from the wing and in-form centre Gareth Maule, who has shown pace and power with five tries from his last six Scarlets appearances moves to the wing along with experienced Scottish international winger Sean Lamont.Regan King and Jon Davies reunite their explosive centre partnership in midfield with Magners League third top point scorer this season, Rhys Priestland (115 points) taking the Scarlets number 10 jersey.Scarlets defense Coach Simon Easterby said: “This month is a huge one for us.  We have our big European fixture against Leicester next weekend at home, then Perpignan away but we want to stay in the top section of the Magners League and as we’ve said all season, the domestic competition is hugely important and a primary focus for us.

Kurt H. Dunkle announced on Nov. 9 to the Board of Trustees of General Seminary that he was resigning as dean and president, effective at the end of the current academic year.“I am eager to model a healthy transition of leadership,” Dunkle said. “Part of a ‘normal process’ of leave-taking is the excitement of imagining the possibilities ahead. General’s future is very bright. Our focus will continue to be how to best serve the church.”Atlanta Bishop Robert Wright, chair of the seminary’s Board of Trustees, commented on Dunkle’s decision: “Dean Dunkle served marvelously over the season he led General, remaining clear-eyed and steady-handed through many challenges. As he leaves us, he leaves the seminary strongly positioned to fulfill its mission statement of educating and forming lay and ordained leaders for the church in a changing world.”Wright continued, “On behalf of the entire Board, I wish he and Cathleen well on the next stage of their journey, wherever the Spirit may guide them. I am grateful for his time as Dean, his perseverance and character, he has added strength and faithfulness to the GTS community.  His successor will inherit the good will and momentum that he has forged for the days and years ahead.  It is because of Kurt’s good work that The Board of Trustees is excited to discern GTS’ next chapter of service.”The Rev. Susan Wrathall, president of the Alumni Executive Committee, offered her sentiments: “Dean Dunkle’s enthusiasm for General has been infectious. The Alumni Executive Committee’s relationship with the Board of Trustees has significantly improved over his tenure, and I am grateful that he is leaving the seminary in a position of health. These will ensure a successful time of transition, and I wish him the best.”Dunkle was installed as the 13th dean and president of General Theological Seminary on Oct. 17, 2013, in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. Since then, Dunkle has overseen the reaccreditation of the seminary, including two focused visits and a comprehensive visit, all with no notations. In five years, he led the seminary from a $3 million structured deficit to a balanced budget. In fact, the seminary has maintained a surplus in several recent years.Dunkle oversaw the creation of two new degree programs: the Doctor of Ministry program welcomed its first cohort this year, and Master of Arts in Ministry, accredited in 2017, was the first new degree program for General in 20 years. He also shepherded the realignment of Board of Trustee membership from 42 to under 30, which is the first reduction in over 100 years.Throughout his tenure, Dunkle’s resolute commitment to financial, missional and cultural health and sustainability guided decision-making. These three foci, along with the four strategic pillars, and seven core values brought results. Financially, annual giving increased each year, and about $3 million was raised for the chapel, in addition to new grants, including from the Lilly Foundation.The clarity of Dunkle’s vision and resolute focus shifted the culture of the seminary and encouraged a community-wide embrace of hospitality, alignment of faculty to mission with full engagement in “education and formation.” He also oversaw a 10-15% increase in admission applications every year since 2015 with the largest entering class in 2020, with 40 students, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Committed both to the focus on worship and the highest standards of health and safety, more recently Dunkle oversaw the creation of the new outdoor altar, the first altar consecrated for the seminary in 140 years.The Board of Trustees will announce an intentional transition process by Dec. 15, 2020. Dunkle anticipates his last day will be at the end of May or June 2021.

The pavilion is situated in the garden of a villa from the 1920s, surrounded by old trees and dense foliage. The two-storey structure leaves a minimal footprint, with its larger upper floor sitting on the smaller ground floor, cantilevering on all sides. In plan it takes the shape of an irregular pentagon, fitting into the corner of the site, minimizing the appearance of the pavilion and maximizing the views from inside.Save this picture!© Eliane RutishauserThe ground floor is an open-plan kitchen and dining area which can be opened on all sides to the surrounding garden with folding sliding glass doors.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe only wall of the structure acts like a hollow tree trunk and contains a toilet, storage and ancillary space. Along this wall a flight of stairs leads to the upper floor which is used as an open-plan living space, open to all sides with floor to ceiling glazing, maximizing the views into the surrounding trees and garden. The pavilion becomes a treehouse. Save this picture!© Eliane RutishauserThe asymmetrical position of the wall allows for varying depths within the large space. Starting from the stair landing and moving counter-clockwise the space first widens and then gradually becomes narrower and more intimate, moving from a working and living area to the sleeping and bathing area.Save this picture!SectionContrasting the narrow vertical frames of the folding sliding glass doors on the ground floor, the large sliding “Sky-Frame” windows on the upper floor maximize the views into the surrounding treetops and the garden. The sliding windows open up all five corners of the upper floor, turning the corners into outdoor loggias, perched among the foliage.Save this picture!© Eliane RutishauserThe pavilion adapts to and interacts with its surroundings, the weather and the seasons, allowing it to be opened in varying degrees and connecting the different levels of the surrounding garden, from the grass to the treetops.Save this picture!Upper FloorThe structure of the pavilion is built entirely of exposed in-situ concrete. The upper floor is supported by the trunk wall and five thin steel columns. The folded plate concrete roof is held only by the trunk wall, asymmetrically cantilevered on all sides, sheltering the upper floor and freeing the space from any further structural elements.The pavilion provides a very open, informal and unusual living space in tune and in dialogue with its surroundings, the weather and the seasons.Save this picture!© Christian BrunnerProduct Description.- Sky-Frame’s floor to ceiling sliding glass window system with its minimal profile frames provides the required openness and unrestricted view for the entire upper floor of the pavilion. Glazed with Glas Troesch’s (Euroglas) highly efficient triple heat insulating glass “Silverstar EN2plus” with reduced reflectance, it enhances the views while simultaneously protecting birds in the surrounding trees, preventing them from crashing into the large window panes.Project gallerySee allShow lessAlbabel / MasquespacioSelected ProjectsThe Palestinian Museum / heneghan peng architectsSelected Projects Share 2013 Switzerland Manufacturers: Sky-Frame, VELUX Commercial, Contec AG, Viúva Lamego, Kästli, Rametall Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Projects Area:  130 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeOliv Brunner Volk ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZurichZürichSwitzerlandPublished on May 25, 2017Cite: “A Garden Pavilion in Zurich / Oliv Brunner Volk Architekten” 25 May 2017.

This ambitious and crafted home responds to its traditional context by prioritising rigorous geometric composition, dynamic use of space and light, and a strong engagement with the streetscape. The optimistic intent is to advance the traditional semi-detached housing type to better reflect the contemporary social and cultural context of Bondi. CORE PRINCIPLES The unadvanced, ornate and traditional context inspired an optimistic, ambitious and contemporary response. Paired with its ornate neighbour and set amongst the backdrop of vernacular semi-detached houses, the project relies on the simplicity, clarity and strength of the geometric refence to traditional gable-ended semi-detached houses.Save this picture!© Katherine LuSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Katherine LuThe geometry of the new façade is a mirror of its neighbour, but is stripped of ornamentation. The unadorned frontage gives primacy to the purity and clarity of the three staggered gabled forms whilst still maintaining a formal connection with its neighbour. A strong connection to the outdoors, privacy from the street and the ability to adapt the building to various thermal conditions was achieved via the fully operable and dynamic front and rear facades. The previously dark core of this semi-detached home is now drenched in sunlight throughout the day and naturally ventilates the entire home, drawing air in from the front and rear and expelling it through the open skylights. The restrained material palette relies on variety in texture and patten and their interaction with light and space to provide a level of richness and vigour to the project. This restraint in turn accentuates project’s formal composition and improves the design intent’s legibility. RELATIONSHIP OF FORM TO CONTEXT Given its exposed location, restrained material palette and gabled composition, the house stands as a new landmark in the back-streets of Bondi. The crisply detailed simple forms of the front façade offer an alternative to the traditional Bondi semi and along with it, a sense of advancement. The dialogue between the new and old is easily read with an unobstructed front boundary and a generous setback which openly engages the streetscape.Save this picture!© Katherine LuSave this picture!© Katherine LuThis openness is balanced by the privacy offered by the dynamic timber batten screening that slides across the facades providing access, sun protection or a veil from onlookers. PROGRAM RESOLUTION Whilst the new building envelope addressed the presentation to the streetscape and interface with the broader context, the reconfiguration of the internal arrangement was successful in creating a more dynamic engagement with natural light, space and the landscape within the home. A large void was dropped into the middle of the home and topped with a series of strategically placed openable skylights between the rafters. This satisfied the brief requirements of separation between public and private spaces and the injection of natural light and air into the core of the home whilst maintaining privacy from the neighbours to the north.Save this picture!© Katherine LuProject gallerySee allShow lessInstallation Topographies of Pleasure/ Lorna de SantosSelected ProjectsHouse in Takatsuki / Tato ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Australia “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936656/north-bondi-house-james-garvan-architecture Clipboard “COPY” ArchDaily North Bondi House / James Garvan Architecture Architects: James Garvan Architecture Area Area of this architecture project 2019 Area:  180 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•North Bondi, Australialast_img read more

IRFS correspondent convicted in Nakhchivan

first_imgNews News Follow the news on Azerbaijan RSF_en to go further Organisation Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh Mehdiyev lives in Jalil, a village near the city of Sharur in northwestern Nakhchivan, and runs a small car-wash next to his house as an additional source of income. On the evening of 15 July, he received a visit from a group of police officers and men in plain-clothes led by Aladdin Mamedov, the deputy head of the Sharur regional government, who said they had come todisconnect the electricity supply to the car-wash on the grounds that it constituted “illegal use of energy.”Two colleagues of Mehdiyev, Elman Abasov of IRFS and Ilgar Nasibov of the Turan news agency, were violently attacked by policemen when they tried to film the scene. Their equipment was confiscated and they were taken to a police station, where they were held for several hours. All three journalists filed a complaint with the regional prosecutor’s office on 18 July.The harassment of Mehdiyev nonetheless continued. The electricity supply to his house was disconnected. And then, on 19 July, he was summoned by the local prosecutor, who threatened to arrest his son if he did not withdraw the complaint.According to Mehdiyev, who has been harassed in the past, he is being hounded now because he accompanied Michael Ludwig, a journalist with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, during an abortive reporting visit to Nakhchivan in early July.When Ludwig arrived in Nakhchivan with press accreditation from the Azerbaijani foreign ministry, the local authorities initially refused to let him work. Then, after long negotiations, they allowed him freedom of movement as long as he was always accompanied by a representative of the Nakhchivan government.Everything Ludwig did was reported back to the local authorities by this official, who made it impossible for him to interview members of the local population freely. Ludwig finally left without getting the story he was after.What with physical attacks on journalists and frequent blocking of Internet connections, the media freedom situation is appalling in Nakhchivan and the local authorities are largely to blame. But, far from trying to rein them in, the Azerbaijani government in Baku seems to be taking a leaf from their book. Violence against journalists has resumed throughout Azerbaijan since a crackdown on a peaceful protests in March and April.There have been no results in the investigations into two cases in which opposition newspaper reporters Seymour Khaziyev and Ramin Deco were abducted and beaten in separate incidents a week apart in late March and early April. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is outraged that Hakimeldostu Mehdiyev, the correspondent of the Institute for Reporter Freedom and Safety (IRFS) in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, was fined 1,000 manats (930 euros) on 27 September for “illegal use of electricity.”His lawyer, Asabali Mustafayev, said Mehdiyev would appeal. “The reports of the investigation were doctored and the head of the municipality publicly recognized that Mehdiyev was being punished because of his activities in defence of human rights,” he said.Mehdiyev has been the victim of the most absurd harassment ever since accompanying German journalist Michael Ludwig during a visit to Nakhchivan in early July (see below).———30.08.2011 – Nakhchivan authorities continue to harass IRFS correspondentHakimeldostu Mehdiyev, the correspondent of the Institute for Reporter Freedom and Safety (IRFS) in Sharur, in the north of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, has been charged by the district prosecutor’s office with “diverting electricity” under article 189-1 of the criminal code.Sanan Pashayev, the official in charge of the investigation, made Mehdiyev signed an undertaking that he would not leave the Sharur district. The charge carries a maximum fine of 3,000 manat (2,600 euros), which could be withdrawn from his salary over a period of up to two years.“We again call on the authorities to abandon these absurd proceedings, the sole aim of which is to intimidate Mehdiyev,” Reporters Without Borders said.Mehdiyev, whose power supply is still disconnected, has been harassed by the regional authorities every since early July, when he accompanied a visiting German journalist, Michael Ludwig. Nakhchivan is an autonomous Azerbaijani exclave located between Armenia and Iran.————-20.07.2011-Journalist hounded in autonomous republic, two colleagues attackedReporters Without Borders is appalled to learn that Hakimeldostu Mehdiyev, a correspondent of the Institute for Reporters Freedom and Safety (IRFS) in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, has repeatedly been harassed by officials for the past week. It is the latest example of the intolerance that the local authorities show towards the media in Nakhchivan, an Azerbaijani exclave between Armenia and Iran.“This harassment of Mehdiyev on the most ridiculous pretexts must stop at once, and the physical violence used against two of his fellow journalists must not go unpunished,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Attacks on journalists are unfortunately common in Nakhchivan, where the authorities like to foster a climate of tension that is very hostile to media freedom.” AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News Receive email alerts June 8, 2021 Find out more AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia September 29, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 IRFS correspondent convicted in Nakhchivan News June 4, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says April 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
