No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Tags: NULL ROYAL Bank of Scotland (RBS) has hired the former Dresdner Kleinwort banker who became a controversial City figurehead after suing his employer for refusing to pay him a bonus.John McIntyre, who won close to £2m after taking his fight to the courts, will join RBS as head of corporate finance for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.He is lauded by some in the City after fighting for his pay despite the political and social backlash against bankers’ remuneration.The appointment will be seen as a signal of intent from the lender as it prepares to meet with the Treasury and UK Financial Investments – the body which controls the public’s 84 per cent stake – to thrash out a deal on how much it can pay top earners.RBS faced criticism last year when it announced it would pay £1.3bn in bonuses in order to hang on to its top bankers. This figure is likely to rise as the bank attempts to rebuild the division and ward off rivals hoping to poach its top talent.An RBS spokesman declined to comment last night. whatsappcenter_img More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Share RBS hires £2m legal win banker Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Vote tomorrow in The Apopka Voice Reader’s Poll – Seat #2

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate At a March of 2017 City Council meeting, Commissioner Diane Velazquez verbally announced her intentions to run for re-election to the Apopka City Commission. It was the beginning of the race for Seat #2. But then over eight months passed, and Velazquez found herself still running in her own lane unopposed.Finally, on December 1st, two candidates joined Velazquez in the race and filed to run in the Seat #2 election – Leroy Bell and Alicia Koutsoulieris.Velazquez won Seat #2 in 2014, defeating incumbent Marilyn Ustler-McQueen with over 55% of the vote. She has high name recognition and is likely to be well-financed. Bell and Koutsoulieris are first-time candidates in Apopka and will have an uphill climb to defeat Velazquez. On the other hand, six straight challenged incumbents have lost in Apopka Municipal elections dating back to 2012. Retiring Commissioner Billie Dean was the last incumbent to defend his Seat (#1) way back in 2010.So do Bell or Koutsoulieris have a chance against Velazquez? There’s one way to find out. The Apopka Voice has promised to keep the readers informed of this historic election cycle, and this is the first step.Where does the race for Seat #2 stand?Tomorrow at noon, we will publish an online poll of our readers that will ask one question:If the election for Apopka City Commission Seat #2 were held today, who would you vote for?Leroy BellAlicia KoutsoulierisDiane VelazquezThe poll will close at noon on Monday, December 18th, at which time we will publish its results.This is not a scientific poll. The margin of error is unknown, but it should reflect a snapshot of where our readers stand with these three candidates at the beginning of their campaigns, but with less than three months to go before Election Day.So tomorrow at noon, vote for the Seat #2 candidate you think will best lead Apopka into its promising future.

Unikato supposed to stand in the center of Katowice – once a dynamically developing industrial city. The testimony of that era is the impressive modernist buildings. Today, the city is experiencing a demographic crisis and suffers from sub-urbanization. There is a lack of new residential buildings, and the city is subordinated to car traffic generated by people coming here every day to work from the sprawling suburbs. Unikato is to be an impulse to reverse this negative trend and to breathe new life into the area. Save this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiProject guidelines. The project budget was extremely low. The investor provided funds only for a cheap finish – styrofoam, plaster, white plastic windows – and for the balconies, which were to be a storage space for small apartments. Save this picture!East elevationSave this picture!SectionIdea. Modernist buildings of Katowice, once bright, for many years exposed to the smog, gradually got dirty and became almost black. Their white windows always contrast with the black of the facade. This observation has become an inspiration for the project.Save this picture!© Aleksander RutkowskiSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiWe took from the neighboring pre-war building: dirty plaster color, pedestal in the basement, typical of the surrounding buildings, and balcony motif in relation to the window. Full balustrade covers the exit, thanks to which all the windows appear square. The balcony becomes an extension of the apartment, at the same time providing privacy, which residents quickly appreciated using it for recreation or storage. Thanks to the full balustrades, the building maintains consistency, and the objects kept on the balconies do not disfigure the area.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe balconies arranged in the same direction on all facades, along with position shifted in relation to the irregular outline of the building, creates a characteristic silhouette, which is the dominant feature at the end of the quarter. Importantly, the characteristic composition of balconies is not only a formal treatment. On the eastern facade, balconies adjoining the wall with the shorter side and sticking out far beyond the building outline catch much more of the southern light.Save this picture!© Aleksander RutkowskiAnother reference to the surroundings is the plinth motif taken from the neighboring buildings, which stretches across the entire frontage. On the other side, where Unikato borders with a free-standing villa, the plinth becomes a fence, referring to the fence surrounding the villa.The balconies hanging above the sidewalk make the building very dynamic, but as the distance from the facade increases, it becomes more subdued, mildly fitting into the context.Save this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiMaterials and technology. Only economical, easy to implement solutions were at stake in the construction of the building – a monolithic skeletal structure filled with a wall of ceramic hollow bricks, a raw reinforced concrete staircase, white plastic windows, and plaster on the facade. Something that seemed a disadvantage was turned into an asset of the project because the white of windows in combination with the dark finish of the facade became a recognizable element of the building. The balconies are made in monolithic construction. Their steel barriers are clad with cement panels and covered with plaster. The base of the building is finished with a cheap aluminum sheet, which is gradually tarnished. The building is equipped with installations minimizing energy consumption and is powered from an ecological municipal network. Despite the limited budget, the roof was designed as green – it absorbs dust and smog and improves the microclimate.

This place also preserves many typical architectural marks, intersecting Vietnamese, Chinese, Khmer ethnic groups through many different periods.Save this picture!© Minq BuiArchitecture – 3become1 house is renovated from three separate tube houses to become a unification and satisfies all functional requirements of the owner. Before the renovation, this house had many limitations: small bedrooms, lack of natural lighting, swelter, wet and degraded bathroom, long and dark corridors, and no garden or landscape. The facade of the house before the renovation was not similar, which had not created an emphasis on shape and color even though it is located on a large and busy road surface.Save this picture!© Minq BuiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Minq BuiThe existing front yard was covered, located close to the road, and quite high compared to the sidewalk so the architect had lowered the floor while removing the roof to return the garden court. This has created a setback space and limited the noise pollution, dust from outside and this garden also absorbs and reduce the solar heat.Save this picture!© Minq BuiThe entire foundation and columns are retained to limit the impact on the structure of the house. The walls between the old houses were removed, bringing large and connected spaces, fully meeting the long-term needs of the owner. The redundant staircase is replaced with a large skylight which is enough for natural light to diffuse into every corner of the house and the trees inside can still grow naturally. Based on the natural lighting, the house does not have to use electric lights during the day to reduce and save energy consumption.Save this picture!© Minq BuiSave this picture!Microclimatic Section 01The new facade is a perfect combination between modernity and tradition. The gable roof and curved arches evoke familiar memories of the old houses and still retain the harmony of architectural form with neighboring houses. Old baked bricks are reused to bring a revival of traditional values and the red brick color and zigzag tile pattern help the house be identified from a distance and create a very unique personality for the house. The breeze blocks are arranged in suitable positions to receive natural light and ventilation, but still keep the privacy of the owner and help the house “breathe” by itself.Save this picture!© Minq BuiInterior – The interior of the house is designed with a modern style mixed with traditional Asian features. The ground floor is a completely open space, filled with natural light, including the kitchen, the family tea table, the living room. Partitions are not used, to create intimacy, coziness, and the connection of family members.Old items bearing many memories of the owner are also used and in harmony with the new interior. Modern living room, highlighted by a raw concrete wall decorated with a picture made of real lotus leaves, evoking a familiar feeling of the countryside of the Mekong River Delta. The details are inspired by the traditional culture of the Khmer whose population accounts for more than 31% of the Soc Trang population.Save this picture!© Minq BuiOurdoor Performance Art Center of “Peony Pavilion” Drama / DAQI ARCHITECTS, China Ar…Selected ProjectsThe Youth Activity Center, Old Garment Factory Renovation / REDe Architects + Moguan…Selected Projects Share “COPY” Photographs Architects: Space + Architecture Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959029/3become1-house-space-plus-architecture Clipboard Area:  598 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Sóc Trăng, Vietnam “COPY” Vietnam Photographs:  Minq Bui Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959029/3become1-house-space-plus-architecture Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officeSpace + ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSóc TrăngVietnamPublished on March 26, 2021Cite: “3become1 House / Space + Architecture” 25 Mar 2021.

JustGiving claims back Gift Aid after HMRC clarification

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 JustGiving claims back Gift Aid after HMRC clarification  169 total views,  1 views today Following HMRC’s recent clarification of Gift Aid rules. JustGiving has announced that it has claimed back more than £1.6m for charities.Under previous HMRC instruction, thousands of charities had Gift Aid claims withheld because messages accompanying individual donations included the names of more than one family member. HMRC has now agreed to permit Gift Aid claims for this type of donation.While the rules state that that donors must only claim Gift Aid when donating their own money when using social giving opportunities, they also now include the following:“3.44.6 Some social giving accounts allow a donor to leave a supportive message for a fundraiser participating in a sponsored event, or a dedication message in remembrance of a loved one. It is okay to extend such messages beyond the donor as long as the donation is still of the donors own money.”JustGiving has now received the first of two expected payments of Gift Aid from HMRC, affecting donations made between November 2015 and the present, which comply with this guidance.The following actions took place on 22nd July:Charities affected received reclaimed Gift Aid funds into their bank accountsReports relating to these funds became available in the relevant JustGiving charity accounts, providing a full breakdown of the funds receivedDonors who have been affected will see Gift Aid confirmations visible on pages, alongside their donations. (Where donors opted to hide donation amounts, Gift Aid will not be shown)The delivery of the second tranche of Gift Aid funds will be communicated to charities in the same way, once it has been received by JustGiving from HMRC.In line with the guidelines, JustGiving has also agreed to include supplementary questions within the Gift Aid declaration process to help donors make accurate Gift Aid declarations and minimise the risk of error.An HMRC spokesperson commented:“Nothing has changed, our position has always been that Gift Aid can be claimed when an individual donor, who pays tax in the UK, makes a donation, even if additional names are added in a supporting message.”“However, where gifts are made by groups of people, such as work collections or large groups of friends, Gift Aid is not due and should not be claimed.” Advertisement Tagged with: Gift Aid HMRC Justgivingcenter_img  170 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 Melanie May | 26 July 2016 | News 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.

RSF urges European Union to exert pressure with signing of EU – Algeria agreement

first_img AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Organisation to go further May 12, 2021 Find out more News News Help by sharing this information May 18, 2021 Find out more As the European Union prepares to sign an association accord with Algeria, RSF calls on Brussels to urge Algeria to respect press freedom, which has sharply declined over the past year. Follow the news on Algeria Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) called today on the European Union to emphasise a human rights clause contained in an agreement formally associating Algeria with the European Union and due to be signed shortly.”This clause is a vital part of the agreement and its presence has up to now been ignored in similar accords with Tunisia and Israel, both countries recently criticised for human rights violations,” RSF said in a letter to Spanish foreign minister Josep Pique, who will sign the Algeria agreement for the EU on 22 April. RSF asked him to use the clause “to pressure the Algerian authorities … to pledge that freedom of the press will be respected.” This would mean ending all forms of harassment of journalists, conducting and publishing the results of investigations into police brutality against journalists or their disappearance, further amending the criminal code concerning the media and ending the arbitrary handling of applications to launch new publications.RSF described the media situation in the country, recalling that the Algerian parliament had amended the penal code in May 2001 to increase punishments and fines for defamation in the media, which was followed by numerous lawsuits against journalists working in the privately-owned media.In the first four months of this year, many journalists were questioned by police after complaints from the defence ministry about alleged defamation. Among them was a cartoonist, Ali Dilem, who was questioned on 25 January this year about a cartoon making fun of the army that appeared in the French-language paper Liberté last November. The ministry considered it “defamatory and an affront to the dignity of senior military figures.”During demonstrations last year, journalists were often threatened, physically attacked or had their equipment seized. Lotfi Bouchouchi, a correspondent in Algeria for the French TV station TF1, was seriously injured in Tizi-Ouzou on 13 March this year by a tear-gas grenade fired by police while he asking people in the street what they thought about a speech President Abdelaziz Bouteflika had just made. He was hit by the grenade even though he was not in the crowd of demonstrators and was clearly identifiable as press.The Arab-language weekly El-Mouaad el-Djazairi’s 26 November 2001 issue was withdrawn from newsstands and has not appeared since then. Several media owners have been unable to get permission to launch new publications, but the granting of some permits suggests the government is picking and choosing which to allow. Four years ago, almost to the day, Aziz Bouabdallah (see picture), a journalist on the Arab-language daily El-Alam es-Siyassi, disappeared in Algiers. This followed the disappearance of four other journalists – Mohammed Hassaine, Kaddour Bousselham, Djamil Fahassi and Salah Kitouni. After an on-the-spot enquiry in January 2001, RSF concluded that the state security services were responsible for the disappearance of three of them, including Bouabdallah. Since the first of the five disappeared, in 1995, the authorities have made no serious investigation of the cases.

USA: Chief of Naval Operations Visits Ingalls Shipyard and PCU

first_img View post tag: usa View post tag: Ingalls USA: Chief of Naval Operations Visits Ingalls Shipyard and PCU View post tag: of Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert was hosted by Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. leadership during a visit to Ingalls Shipyard​ and Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) San Diego (LPD 22), Oct. 25.U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker accompanied CNO during the visit which was led by Ingalls Shipbuilding President Irwin F. Edenzon. Additionally, during the tour of PCU San Diego, the Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Joe Haydel, shared with CNO updated capabilities the ship will have and progress being made.“I was impressed with the ships being built here, particularly the San Diego,” said Greenert. “The kind of multimission, multi-capability, cutting edge technology built here in the shipyard will serve ships for 30 to 40 years.”While aboard LPD 22 Greenert and Wicker saw firsthand by walking the decks and ladders where Sailors and Marines will eat, sleep and fight. From the engineering spaces to medical spaces to top decks, Greenert and Wickers saw a capable ship that will soon be accepted by the Navy.During a media availability following the visit, CNO talked about Ingalls Shipyard and the vital role it plays in the nation’s investment in the Navy and Marine Corps.“An amphibious ship brings a small footprint and great capability,” said Greenert. “It brings you persistence and as necessary, a lethal force with a credible power source.”Additionally, Greenert highlighted the importance of amphibious transport docks (LPD) and the role they play to providing the President and nation off-shore options.PCU San Diego successfully completed builder’s sea trials, and Ignalls Shipyard is currently preparing the ship for Navy acceptance trials in November. It is scheduled for commissioning in its namesake city in the spring of 2012.[mappress]Source: navy, October 27, 2011 View post tag: and View post tag: Operations October 27, 2011 View post tag: visitscenter_img View post tag: shipyard View post tag: Naval View post tag: chief View post tag: PCU Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Chief of Naval Operations Visits Ingalls Shipyard and PCU Share this articlelast_img read more
