What the other papers say this morning

first_img whatsapp KCS-content FINANCIAL TIMESBIG SOCIETY PLAN “WILL NOT PLUG CUTS GAP”The Big Society Bank and other social finance initiatives will not be enough to replace charitable projects hit by government spending cuts, according to figures compiled by the Financial Times and the Young Foundation think-tank. Geoff Mulgan, former strategy director at Number 10 and head of the Young Foundation, said: “There are a lot of fertile ideas about [raising money] and things are starting to happen. But even on the most optimistic scenarios there is a vast gap between the scale of new money coming into social ventures and the sheer speed and scale of the spending cuts.”STUDENT LOAN COST FEARS SPARK TUITION FEES THREATMinisters have warned universities that the government will seek new power to contain tuition fees if too many institutions attempt to raise their charges close to the maximum.CAIRN TAKES TOUGH LINE ON OILFIELDS SALECairn Energy, the UK-listed oil and gas company, has hardened its stance in its battle to secure the Indian government’s approval for its proposed $9.6bn sale of oilfields in Rajasthan, rejecting conditions being placed on the transaction. The directors of Cairn’s Indian subsidiary on Thursday said they “cannot accept” any interference that might change the value of the sale of a controlling stake in the company to UK-listed Vedanta. They said uncertainty over the deal was affecting the business.EUROFIGHTER TO OFFER INDIA A ROLEThe Eurofighter consortium is prepared to offer India a manufacturing role, as the international race intensifies to supply 126 jet fighters worth $11bn to New Delhi.THE TIMESINQUIRY SOUGHT TO STOP AIRLINES CASHING IN ON CARD PAYMENTSBudget airlines could face an official inquiry into “rip-off” credit and debit card charges after the Which? consumer group lodges a “super-complaint” next month. The charity is using its statutory powers to ask the Office of Fair Trading to investigate the fees, which can reach hundreds of pounds for some transactions.CHANNEL 4 PLANS TO BECOME CHANNEL 6 WITH LOCAL NEWS OUTLETChannel 4 will bid to become the host broadcaster for the government’s new network of city-based television stations. It is understood to be considering plans to overhaul one of its digital channels, E4 and More4, or their timedelayed “+1” counterparts, to act as a national “spine” for a host of local news providers.The Daily TelegraphSPAIN ORDERS DRASTIC CAJA CLEAN-UP TO WIN CONFIDENCE AND FIGHT OFF EMU DEBT CONTAGIONSpain has imposed draconian rules on its saving banks and is preparing for part-nationalisation of the industry to restore confidence and boost the country’s defences against contagion from the debt crisis in Portugal. The weaker banks, or “cajas”, must raise Tier 1 core capital to 10 per cent by September if they depend on wholesale capital markets for over a fifth of their funding or if less than a fifth of their shares are in private hands. INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND DIRECTOR DOMINIQUE STRAUSS-KAHN CALLS FOR NEW WORLD CURRENCYDominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, has called for a new world currency that would challenge the dominance of the dollar.THE WALL STREET JOURNALFOR UK BANKS, A CALAMITY IS BORNUK bank regulators are launching a new type of “stress test” that forces banks to consider unlikely but potentially disastrous scenarios like a flu pandemic or disruptions to the country’s food-supply chain. The latest exercise, which the UK’s Financial Services Authority instructed banks to start conducting in mid-December, is dubbed a “reverse stress test”.BLOCKBUSTER HEADS TOWARD SALES BLOCK Blockbuster is preparing to put itself up for sale after creditors disagreed on plans to give the movie-rental chain more cash to help it exit bankruptcy protection, people familiar with the matter said. Blockbuster now plans to seek buyers instead of reorganising in bankruptcy court and could ask a judge to approve bidding procedures as soon as next week.

Seven men aged 42-54 were arrested in London and two aged 42 and 43 held in Iceland.The brothers confirmed in a statement that they were being questioned.“We were arrested earlier this morning and are being questioned with regard to matters relating to our relationship with Kaupthing Bank. “Both of us are cooperating fully with the investigation and are confident that, once concluded, we will be cleared of any allegation of wrongdoing,” they said.Police vans were parked outside their offices in Mayfair and Park Lane in London earlier today.Vincent Tchenguiz had planned to host a press party on his boat, Veni Vidi Vici, in Cannes, southern France, on Thursday. The industry is converging on the French Riviera this week for the annual MIPIM property conference.Iceland’s main commercial banks – Kaupthing, Landsbanki and Glitnir – collapsed in the space of a week more than two years ago, imploding under the weight of huge debts racked up during years of aggressive overseas expansion.In January, Iceland’s Special Prosecutor’s Office searched several financial institutions, including the central bank, as part of a criminal investigation into the collapse of another Icelandic bank, Landsbanki.The Iranian-born Tchenguiz brothers amassed a real estate portfolio worth up to 4 billion pounds ($6.5 billion) during a series of UK property booms.

Los cánones actuales requieren que el obispo presidente renuncie a su sede en las elecciones.El debate sobre la resolución B013 se centró en si esta acción debe llevarse a cabo ahora o esperar a una discusión más amplia acerca de la restructuración que está siendo tratada por la Comisión de Estructura.El Muy Reverendo Bill Ellis, deputado de Spokane, comparó esta acción a “poner el carro bien delante del caballo”. Dijo: “No tenemos idea en qué nos estamos metiendo. Ni siquiera hemos empezado a hablar acerca de una nueva comprensión del oficio del obispo presidente y si es o no apropiada una medida de este tipo”.La Dra. Fredrica Thompsett, diputada de Massachusetts, abogó por tomar ahora esta acción. Dijo que ella y otros miembros de la Comisión de Estructura “eran conscientes de que tenemos que mirar a todo el conjunto, pero también tenemos que empezar. Esto nos da una posibilidad creativa y permisiva que favorezca una toma de decisiones racional y opciones en un periodo en el que estamos considerando, y vamos a considerar el nombramiento de un próximo obispo presidente”.Otros oradores se preguntaron si era posible que alguien sirviera como obispo diocesano y como obispo presidente, teniendo en cuenta las exigencias de ambos trabajos. En última instancia los diputados votaron a favor de adoptar la resolución y la remitieron a la Cámara de los Obispos para su consideración.También se aprobó la resolución D037, que pide al Comité Permanente Conjunto de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas que considere la restauración de casi $3 millones en fondos para la formación cristiana y la pastoral juvenil, que habían sido cortados en los borradores del presupuesto.Las deputados también eligieron a 12 personas en calidad de fideicomisarios del Church Pension Fund (Fondos de Pensión de la Iglesia):Diane B.

Friday Funnies – Stirling Mortlock low blow

first_imgThursday Feb 28, 2008 Friday Funnies – Stirling Mortlock low blow It’s not good to laugh at this type of thing, so I’ll leave that up to you. But a few years back, in the 2004 Tri Nations, when Jaco van der Westhuizen put through a well placed, low, stabbing kick against the Wallabies, Stirling Mortlock found it anything but funny.Taking it square in the wedding tackle, Mortlock was seeing stars for a good few minutes before recovering and continuing with the game.Not too long ago we saw a charge down with the head by Corey Jane. I wouldn’t want to begin to describe what kind of charge down this is.Lets just say Mortlock was temporarily a contributor to this odd shaped balls website, in more ways than one.

The Welsh response to the All Blacks Haka

first_imgThursday Nov 27, 2008 The Welsh response to the All Blacks Haka On Saturday we watched as a great test match took place in Cardiff between hosts Wales and the all conquering All Blacks. It was a tale of two halves as Wales competed manfully in the first, but were no match in the second as New Zealand came out tops 29-9 in the end. Possibly the most talked about event of the match though didnt take place during game time, but in fact pre-kickoff as Wales stood up to the Haka, presenting a challenge of their own. All week there had been talk of a response from the Welsh, and while the rumours spread, when it came down to it, the response they gave was simple, yet effective in making their statement of intent known. What it was, was a fantastic moment in sport as the two minute stand off following the Kapa o Pango had neither side wanting to blink as they stared each other down. Referee Jonathan Kaplan tried in vain to coax the teams into action, but neither were interested in being the first to take a backward step. Following the match, All Black centre Maa Nonu has warned that in the upcoming game this weekend, the English will be best advised to not try the same stunt. Nonu was rather put out by the standoff at the Millennium Stadium, saying that it will have hurt viewers back home in New Zealand. He also had his theories as to who was behind the bold move. “What the Welsh did wound us up. They were probably told by Warren Gatland to stand there and wait until we leave,” he said. “But it was really hard. The Haka is a war dance. If you’re going to stand there like that then in the past people would have charged, but it’s a rugby match and you can’t do that. “People back home will have been hurt by what they decided to do. Standing in the way like they did is asking for a fight. “My blood pressure was pretty high but then I regained my composure. I was a bit upset about it. “If I was facing the haka I’d respect it. The haka is the haka, after that it’s game time. If England want to do that they can – but they’ll probably get the same response.” New Zealand coach Graham Henry said he hoped Wales’ response would not set a precedent. “The Welsh thought that was the best way to respond, I just wanted to know when the game was going to start. “It took someone with common sense, the All Blacks captain, to get things going,” Henry added. “We don’t need that every week. I hope a copycat situation doesn’t occur. It’s time to move on and be more sensible.” What is your take on it? We think most neutrals would have loved this moment, seeing it as an acceptance of the challenge, rather than being disrespectful. Perhaps the kiwis out there disagree though? We’d love to hear your feedback.

With the living spaces located directly above the sleeping spaces, this residence transcends the conventional planning and construction of the traditional cottage architecture that exists in the region. As one approaches the site, the initial image is that of restrained elegance. The presence of shimmering metal roofs becomes analogous to that of the lake while subtly-carved façade provides a glimpse through the house to the lake beyond.  Save this picture!Courtesy of joseph n. biondoRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles – Icon BricksRailing / BalustradesC.R.

The roof appears to hover, while the masonry volumes become an organizing element with sufficient size, closure, and regularity to serve as a figure that can embrace the other layers being organized within. The flanking reinforced masonry walls provide sufficient structure and enclosure which enable the main living area to be free of interior walls. The absence of these walls offers uninterrupted views to the lake from every room. The natural progression of the building with its respect to its topography is rhythmic.

The heavy masonry walls affix themselves into the earth while the lighter wood-framed, cement panel and glass envelope appears to hover above grade. The roof form, which consists of two opposing sheds, visually floats above the primary living space giving the impression of outdoor pavilions from the lake. Save this picture!planThe choice to use certain materials in this home is driven by aesthetic, functional requirements and largely reflects ties to regional traditions. Our curiosity with materials of modest means is explored in this house. By using ordinary materials we gain the greatest possibility of achieving a renewed reality within the material condition of a building. The concrete masonry unit – nothing can be more elemental, humbler in substance, modest in manufacture and simpler in shape and texture. The concrete block can be married to other material whether natural or man made; wood, metal, glass, cementitious panels. Through rigorous and precise application of these complimentary materials, the status of the concrete block, which is so simple and so ordinary, can be elevated. The materials used are commonplace however, the care of their methods of assembly and absolute passion for scrupulous detailing are not.

Hundreds protest as MTA board tries to ignore them

first_imgMembers of Transport Workers Union at MTA hearing.With New York City subways in crisis, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board met again on July 26. Hundreds of people, including many with disabilities, came out to protest.It doesn’t bother the MTA board that the transit fare now costs 55 times what it did in 1948. Or that only one-out-of-four subway stations are accessible to people for whom navigating stairs is a problem. (AM New York, July 20)The MTA board’s fundamental job is to ensure that $2.2 billion in tax-free interest is paid to the banks every year on its $34 billion debt. (Gothamist, Feb. 12, 2015)The day before the board meeting, MTA Chairperson Joe Lhota announced his plan to meet the subway emergency. Lhota, who was racist Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s right-hand crony, finally recognized that more workers had to be hired.But Lhota’s other “solutions” include ripping out seats on subway cars to create more standing room. Workers, particularly the elderly, shouldn’t have to pay $2.75 to travel in sardine cans.The MTA needs to order hundreds of new subway cars and buses. The R32 cars, for example, in service on the A, C, J and Z trains, are 52 years old.Many of the subway lines are at least a century old. The MTA blames delays not on deferred maintenance but on commuters who drop litter on the rails, which can cause track fires. One MTA board member, Charles G. Moerdler, even called passengers who eat on the train “pigs.”The MTA has actually guaranteed more litter by ripping out trash cans at several stations, including the very busy Main Street stop in Flushing, Queens. Lhota wants to crack down on littering “pigs” by encouraging the real pigs to hand out more littering tickets.“Broken windows” police harassment won’t prevent derailments like the one in Harlem this June. And killer cops can’t use their weapons to fix and maintain the signal system.At its meeting in May, the MTA board cut off public comments before all speakers had an opportunity to express their concerns, and its members left the room to finish their meeting elsewhere. It’s clear that most MTA board members are not listening to people’s concerns.But the people demanded that they be heard, and on July 26 some 61 speakers signed up for public comments.A member of Transit Workers Union Local 100, Vanessa Jones, brought to the board’s attention the physical and verbal abuse that MTA workers face from frustrated commuters.A representative from the Access-a-Ride Reform Group (AARRG!), Yesenia Torres, called for a declaration of a state of emergency for the Access-a-Ride system until needed changes are made. Disability rights groups have been turning out for every meeting for the last three months. They said they will continue to pack the board meetings until their demands are met.Steve Millies, a member of the Workers Defense Committee, added to this, saying it was outrageous that Chair­person ­Lhota’s plan did not include anything about the Access-a-Ride system.The Workers Defense Committee, which formed on May Day this year to protect striking workers, is currently raising funds and helping with the legal defense of Darryl Goodwin, an MTA worker and member of TWU Local 100. Goodwin was charged with obstruction of justice, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest for allegedly failing to help a New York Police Department lieutenant get through a turnstile in pursuit of a shoplifter. Police charged Goodwin even though all cops have MetroCards and gate keys and Goodwin was assisting a passenger at the time. According to MTA rules, assisting a passenger takes priority before helping anyone requesting gate access.Other speakers criticized the board’s plan to expand the number of cops in the subway. They emphasized that the real crime was the high fare, and placed the blame on the banks and the enormous portion of the MTA budget that goes toward debt servicing.“We hear in the media arguments about $450 million that’s supposed to come from the city … but that’s a drop in the bucket compared to the tens of billions of dollars that the MTA owes to the banks and Wall Street in debt service,” said Tony Murphy, another member of the WDC. “The banks are looting public transportation.”It’s clear that the real representatives of the people were in the boardroom that day, but they weren’t the ones convened around the table. If all groups attending the meeting started working together, New Yorkers could have a real People’s MTA.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
