There are 28 award categories in all – including best fraud prevention team, best control room and best compliance award. Nominations are free of charge and must be submitted online by 8 October. Ben Goh, secretary of the Compliance Register, said: “Consumers are on the receiving end of good service from the financial services sector and sometimes of bad. The boss who cares makes a huge difference – perhaps by establishing a culture of excellence in a firm, perhaps by stepping in personally to sort out a problem. It’s this kind of leadership and culture that’s being recognised in these awards.”Online nomination forms as well as full details of this year’s award categories are available at www.compliancer.com. whatsapp Sunday 19 September 2010 9:52 pmcenter_img More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.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.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.com Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapplast_img read more

RSA picks up £142m bill after bad weather

first_imgThursday 20 January 2011 8:13 pm RSA picks up £142m bill after bad weather KCS-content whatsapp GENERAL insurer Royal Sun Alliance (RSA) warned yesterday that exceptional losses from bad weather had left it with a bill £142m more than it had expected.Prolonged freezing conditions and snowy weather across Europe in November and December, combined with exposure to hurricane Tomas in the Caribbean, caused it to reduce its forecast for 2010 operating profit to between £600m and £630m.Analysts had previously forecast a consensus £734m operating profit for the year.Insured losses from weather over the whole year have cost the group £255m more than normal, it said in a trading update ahead of its full-year results presentation on 24 February. UK claims made up the bulk of the losses, reaching £110m after it experienced “the coldest December in the UK for 100 years,” RSA chief executive Andy Haste said.About 8,000 households claimed an average £6,700 for burst pipes from RSA since November. It also handled 19,000 home emergency claims, around 5,500 snow claims and almost 5,700 other weather related claims in the two months, it said.However, RSA played down the extent of the impact on the group, emphasising that additional losses would not affect its full-year dividend, and that it had grown premiums income by 11 per cent over the year. “Given the extreme weather in 2010, this is a strong result and reflects the diversity of the portfolio and the resilience of the group’s underlying profitability,” said the UK’s second largest general insurer. Analysts took the news in their stride, viewing the profit warning as a hiccup in RSA’s overall performance. Numis analyst Nick Johnson revised RSA’s 2010 earnings per share down by 20 per cent to 9.5p from 11.9p and its full-year profit before tax down to £464m from £575m. However, he raised 2011 earnings forecasts on expectations of higher investment income.Citi analyst James Quin said it was “not a surprise” that weather losses were higher than expected, but the loss was “perhaps at the top end of what might have been ‘pencilled in’.”“The market’s reaction, marking the shares down 2.6 per cent, is rational in that this is the net cost of the higher weather losses,” Quin said.Analysts were also heartened by RSA’s careful wording change around its combined ratio, a measure of its profitability. RSA said it was no longer targeting a combined ratio of “around” 95 per cent, instead saying it expected to deliver “a combined operating ratio of better than 95 per cent.” Quin said the more positive language was “an important and encouraging message” about the company’s future performance.

Washington National Cathedral adds stone carving of Elie Wiesel to…

first_img Rector Collierville, TN Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Press Release Service [Washington National Cathedral] Washington National Cathedral on April 28 announced that the cathedral has added a stone carving of Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel to its Human Rights Porch, honoring Wiesel’s legacy as a lifelong human rights defender dedicated to combating indifference and intolerance. A survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald camps, Wiesel told his story to millions through his autobiographical novel “Night,” bringing the horrors of the Holocaust into stark focus for the world. The carving was done in place by the cathedral’s stonemasons and has been conceived with the involvement of the Wiesel family.Wiesel joins the likenesses of, among others, Rosa Parks, Mother Teresa, Jonathan Daniels and Eleanor Roosevelt on the cathedral’s Human Rights Porch, which is dedicated to individuals who have taken significant, profound and life-changing actions in the fight for human rights, social justice, civil rights, and the welfare of other human beings. Throughout his life, Wiesel used his voice to try to confront gross human rights abuses and prevent genocide, understanding that taking action early could prevent others from suffering the same fate that befell millions of Jews during the Holocaust.“Elie Wiesel’s life is an extraordinary testimony to the indomitable human spirit and the triumph of love of thy neighbor over hatred and fear, even amidst the darkest and most devastating periods of human history,” said the Very Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith, dean of Washington National Cathedral. “From the depths of cruelty inflicted on him, his family and so many millions of Jews and others during the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel went on to dedicate his life to the pursuit of human rights, and to heed the lessons of history. We are humbled to welcome his likeness to the cathedral and pray that his example and legacy will be a blessing and an inspiration to all who enter.”The announcement of Wiesel’s inclusion in the cathedral’s Human Rights Porch comes during a time of rising antisemitism in the United States and around the world. The presence of Wiesel’s likeness alongside other prominent human rights defenders from multiple faith traditions underscores the cathedral’s commitment to standing up against hatred, bigotry and antisemitism. Inspired by Wiesel’s life’s work and legacy, the cathedral is committed to sustained interfaith dialogue and action to ensure the progress that he fought for in life is protected.“Throughout his life, Elie devoted himself tirelessly to preserving the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and working to ensure that other communities do not suffer the same fate,” said Marion Wiesel, widow of Elie Wiesel and vice president of the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity. “Not only does his presence in the National Cathedral memorialize his life and honor his commitment to human rights; it also ensures that new generations will learn from his teachings and carry the lessons of his life forward into the future.”The dedication of the bust will take place in fall 2021. In conjunction with the dedication, the cathedral, in cooperation with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, will present a program celebrating Elie Wiesel’s enduring legacy. More details on this event will be shared in the months to come.“Like millions of European Jews, Elie suffered unimaginable horrors. But he responded to that suffering by devoting his life to writing, teaching, and above all as a moral leader and tireless advocate for our common humanity,” said Sara Bloomfield, director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. “That his likeness is now included with others, from many backgrounds, who share these ideals is a fitting tribute to his lasting legacy.”While there are many representations of biblical figures from the Hebrew scriptures represented in the cathedral, Wiesel is the first person from the modern-day Jewish community to be added. His inclusion represents the cathedral’s mission to be a house of prayer for all people and a sacred space for the nation to gather. And his place on the cathedral’s Human Rights Porch will serve as an indelible reminder of the necessity of speaking out against hatred in all its forms—the same cause that Wiesel dedicated his life to.Wiesel was born in Romania in 1928, and in 1944 his family was sent by the Nazis to the Auschwitz and Buchenwald camps, where his father, mother and sister were killed. After the camps were liberated, Wiesel went on to a prolific career as a writer, ultimately authoring 57 books, including “Night,” about his experiences during the Holocaust. He was a vocal advocate for human rights causes around the world and served as a professor at Boston University, which created the Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies in his honor. He was the founding chairman of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and won numerous awards throughout his life, including the Nobel Peace Prize, Presidential Medal of Freedom and Congressional Gold Medal. Wiesel died in 2016 of natural causes.Using medieval techniques, the depiction of Wiesel was hand-carved by cathedral stone carver Sean Callahan, who also carved the depictions of Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Jonathan Daniels and other sculptures throughout the cathedral. The Wiesel model was sculpted by North Carolina artist Chas Fagan, a member of the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts whose other works include several carvings at the cathedral, as well as the official White House portrait of First Lady Barbara Bush; statues of Ronald Reagan and Billy Graham at the U.S. Capitol; and a statue of Pope John Paul II at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington.

ConnectionsFrom the beginning this project had to respond to two different voices, or two clients. Both required the same amount of square meters for their future homes. It is perhaps the greatest achievement of this project, having understood how to complete the entire buildable volume equally for both owners, and without losing the ability to have access to almost all of the terrain.Save this picture!Diagram 2The strategy chosen was to cross-distribute the meters that corresponded to each owner, so that both units rotate through the central axis of the patio in a centrifugal manner. To achieve the crossed connection of the two properties without wasting useful meters, we took the decision to “externalize” the stairs, like sleeve-bridges connecting both units.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianVolumesThe silhouette of the building is a result of the completion of the maximum buildable volume that the code of the city of Buenos Aires allows. One strategy for taking advantage of all the meters was maintaining two areas of the property formerly located, clearly manifested through its bricks vaults.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe new building also recalls the old spatial organization positioning itself on the old tracks of the previous house patios, adapting the old layout of the ground floor to the two new homes. Property a with ground floor and two levels has 4 rooms and property of equal height B has 5 rooms. Both properties are staggered so that terraces appear both in the front and in the back.Save this picture!Exploded IsometricOperationsThis strategy is to identify the wall as a foreign element of the structure. This operation is reflected in both facades, motivating the intention of conceiving a solid facade whose operations of openings is the subtraction, exposing the structure behind. These operations were completed by a system of fences and balconies whose folds and textures seek to manifest the light and a verticality throughout the development of both facades, achieving a balance of empty strips and large solid volume.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe inner patio that organizes circulations, has a traditional opening treatment, making the multidirectional stairs, the stars of this central space. The greatest achievement of this project was to adapt under the tracks of the old building, two houses whose volumetric ambition exceeded the capacity of the land and with a simple strategy of circulatory connections, we achieved to occupy the whole site for both two houses.Save this picture!Section CCProject gallerySee allShow lessCareer Insights from IE School of Architecture & DesignArchitecture NewsCASAVAL / Jaime Rouillon OviedoSelected Projects Share Area:  182 m² Area:  182 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/537495/two-houses-conde-hitzig-militello-arquitectos Clipboard ArchDaily 2012 Photographs Year:  CopyHouses•Buenos Aires, Argentina Year:  Two Houses Conde / Hitzig Militello ArquitectosSave this projectSaveTwo Houses Conde / Hitzig Militello Arquitectos Argentina CopyAbout this officeHM.ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBuenos AiresHousesArgentinaPublished on August 17, 2014Cite: “Two Houses Conde / Hitzig Militello Arquitectos” 17 Aug 2014.

Spaces which, in spite of their importance, are overlooked due to two reasons: firstly, because in terms of functionality, they have fewer functions compared to other spaces; secondly, because (regarding the yard and roof), they are not considered as salable living space. Furthermore, when it comes to the yard and the roof, we can claim that common areas are not usually well-kept, since in small apartments it is not possible to hire a janitor. Therefore, these spaces are often dead and unusable spaces.Save this picture!© Sina Momtaheni‏The yard and entrance:‏Despite the fact that the entrance has always been of great importance in traditional Iranian architecture, it lacks proper planning nowadays in apartment dwellings. To solve this problem, we segregated the entrance for automobiles and for the pedestrians. Then, we change the position of the yard in the underground and formed the pedestrian entrance space, segregating the threshold in two areas as well as keeping the interaction between them.Save this picture!© Sina MomtaheniSave this picture!Spatial DiagramOne area standing as the visual threshold with the space and the outdoor pavement, using a glass bridge passing over the yard, reaches the second space. The second space is a semi-closed space which makes accessing vertical accsess possible. Green space, the sound of the water whirling (flowing from under the entrance to the whirlpool in the yard) and being placed in a vertical axis are among the qualitative elements of the building. Furthermore, moving the yard to the underground has made supplying light, view and natural ventilation for a multipurpose salon possible; a salon for sports, reception and so on, which is considered a common area in the building.Save this picture!© Sina MomtaheniSave this picture!Typical floor planSave this picture!© Sina MomtaheniRoof:‏The roofs of Buildings with a small living area usually face this challenge that building green space and maintaining it is not economically justified. Furthermore, not having a single custodian leads to a gradual destruction of these places. Therefore, we decided to divide the roof space into two sections: one part for building installations accessible to all apartment units and the other, a yard adorned with vases and a place for sitting, which is accessible exclusively to the fifth unit, with an separate access from within the unit. This approach taken, the different quality of the fifth unit by using a skylight and taking proper care of the roof can be guaranteed.Save this picture!© Sina Momtaheni‏The corridor:‏For the corridors within the units not to be only a passageway, a functional, linear space has been placed between the living room and the rooms so that it can guarantee the privacy of the rooms and make up for the lack of laundry rooms in small buildings. Placing washing machines and related appliances, the ironing board and closets for keeping necessary items for living in a one hundred and fifty meters apartment in this space, has turned the corridor into a multipurpose space.Save this picture!© Sina MomtaheniProject gallerySee allShow lessBBDO Brussels / ZAmpone ArchitectuurSelected Projects7th International Marianne Brandt AwardIdeasProject locationAddress:Mashhad, Jorasán Razaví, IranLocation to be used only as a reference.

EDITORIAL – Manifestantes de BLM protestan asesinato de Jacob Blake

first_imgLa reciente convención republicana, encabezada por el supremacista blanco en jefe, actual presidente de Estados Unidos y enemigo del pueblo, reunió a sus tropas con tácticas racistas de miedo sobre los “disturbios civiles” de manifestantes de Black Lives Matter y activistas de izquierda.La convención demócrata ofreció una alternativa, pero no una solución. Este partido nominó a la presidencia de los Estados Unidos a uno de los principales autores de un proyecto de ley duro contra el crimen de 1994 que terminó sentenciando a un número enormemente desproporcionado de personas negras y morenas a la cárcel. Para vicepresidente, los demócratas nominaron a una ex fiscal general de California que se describe a sí mismo como “policía superior”.Mientras tanto, en los pocos días entre las dos convenciones, los policías de la “aplicación de la ley” racista, la estructura policial que protege los intereses de la clase dominante multimillonaria de Estados Unidos, continuaron disparando a la gente.El 22 de agosto, la policía mató a tiros a Trayford Pellerin en las calles de Lafayette, Luisiana, en su propio vecindario. Pellerin, un hombre negro, iba a pie. Su familia señaló el contraste entre el destino de su ser querido y el de un hombre blanco arrestado recientemente por la policía de Lafayette sin heridas, a pesar de que estaba armado con una pistola y conducía un automóvil robado.Al día siguiente en Kenosha, Wisconsin, la policía le disparó a Jacob Blake por la espalda varias veces, también en su propio vecindario. Blake, un afroamericano de 29 años, acababa de intentar romper una pelea local y regresaba a su auto. Sus hijos, de 3, 5 y 8 años, estaban en el automóvil y vieron a la policía disparar contra su padre. Se espera que Blake sobreviva, pero con lesiones físicas desconocidas. Los informes del 25 de agosto dicen que está paralizado de la cintura para abajo.En respuesta a estos continuos actos de brutalidad policial racista, cientos de manifestantes de Black Lives Matter inmediatamente comenzaron a marchar en Louisiana y Wisconsin.En Kenosha, Wisconsin, la policía local los inundó con gas lacrimógeno y gas pimienta, y el gobernador desplegó tropas de la Guardia Nacional. En Madison, la capital del estado, se incendió el edificio del Departamento de Correcciones. La gente pintó con aerosol un eslogan contundente en el edificio de Fabricantes y Comercio, que presiona a favor de las grandes empresas: “Has robado más de lo que podríamos ‘saquear’”.Era la voz de la justa rabia del pueblo ante el interminable asesinato y encarcelamiento racista, la brutalidad policial, la injusticia económica y “legal”.Esta voz solo se hará más fuerte a medida que las personas enfrenten la crisis de salud pandémica, los desalojos explosivos, un abismo sin trabajo y el hambre. No puede ser sofocado por los programas políticos de ninguno de los partidos capitalistas existentes en esta llamada “democracia”.Hace unos meses, estallaron protestas masivas e históricas de Black Lives Matter en todos los rincones de los EE.UU., provocadas por la ejecución deliberada de un policía de 8 minutos y 46 segundos de un hombre afroamericano, George Floyd. Esta inexorable presión de masas impuso un cambio rápido.El llamado a “¡Desarmar, desfinanciar y abolir la policía!” ahora está penetrando el ADN del movimiento de masas. Es una demanda que absorben sabiamente, como parte de la necesidad de cambios estructurales más grandes que se están volviendo cada vez más necesarios para la supervivencia misma de los trabajadores y los oprimidos.Como parte de un camino en evolución hacia la revolución socialista, el partido Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero continúa sumando nuestra voz y energía a la demanda: “¡Defiende al pueblo! ¡Arresten a la policía! ¡Desarmar, desfinanciar y abolir a la policía! “FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Justice Shakdher also commented on the new forms of visual techniques used by the media channels to report important issues. He said: ‘On some channels, there are visuals of burning flames; I really don’t get that aesthetic, maybe I’m old school.’ The court was hearing a suit filed by multiple production houses seeking restraint on derogatory and defamatory reporting by certain media channels such as Republic TV, Times Now, and TV19 News. At the outset, the Single Bench of Justice Shakdher noted that such kind of sensational reporting is not restricted to India, but has become a global phenomena. ‘Even trained and educated minds get affected by such a style of reporting. I ask all the parties, what mechanism should be put in place to change the way reporting is taking place these days.’ The court went on to highlight the fate of Princess Diana, to observe that although the threshold of claiming privacy is higher for public figures, a great loss can be caused to them by dragging their private lives into public domain. It was also highlighted by Justice Shakdher that participants of these news channels debates get so excited that they end up using cuss words on live television. The court also clarified to all the Defendants that it is not asking the media channels to not to report certain cases. All that is being asked for, the court said, is that the self-regulation is maintained by complying with the Programme Code. Further, the court even highlighted that a great harm can be caused to a person’s life due to unsubstantiated and speculative reporting. It said: ‘There was a case where a school teacher was almost lynched by the public due to the irresponsible reporting by the media wherein he was stigmatised as a child sexual offender.’ In the present matter, while asking the concerned media channels to submit a reply, the court directed for the strict compliance with the Programme Code and refrain from doing defamatory reporting.Next Storylast_img read more
