I don’t know what his game is. He’s making the situation significantly worse and he’s speaking irresponsibly.”Individuals in the industry are reluctant to criticise King publicly shortly before the Bank of England receives a raft of new powers over financial institutions.A regulatory shake-up by George Osborne will see the Financial Services Authority broken up and its powers redestributed among several bodies overseen by the central bank.King said over the weekend that he was surprised that there is not more anger directed against bankers. “If it’s possible to make money out of gullible or unsuspecting customers, that’s perfectly acceptable (to them),” he said. Angela Knight of the British Bankers Association said that King had failed to take account of how the industry has changed since 2008. “I sincerely hope he is as committed as we are to forming a good relationship (when the Bank gets its new powers),” she said. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastAspireAbove.comInside John Travolta’s Private PlaneAspireAbove.comHealth.recetasget5 Common Cancer Signs to Pay Attention ToHealth.recetasgetGardensTricks.comDon’t Throw Away Your Teabags Yet, This is Genius!GardensTricks.comShop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search AdsStuff AnsweredThe Price of These Fully Loaded Acura’s Will Take Your Breath AwayStuff AnsweredPaws ZillaThe Terrifying Reason Why You Should Never Try To Outrun An Aggressive BearPaws Zillalast_img read more

first_img Stride Gaming shareholders have voted in favour of the online casino and bingo operator’s proposed acquisition by Rank Group. A total of 96.43% of all votes cast were in support of the deal. Tags: Online Gambling 24th July 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Stride Gaming shareholders have overwhelmingly voted in favour of the online casino and bingo operator’s proposed acquisition by Rank Group.Shareholders cast their votes at a Court Meeting earlier today (July 24), with a total of 96.43% of the votes supporting the transaction and just 3.57% against the deal.A total of 27 shareholders voted to back the deal and just one opposed the move, in a vote that saw a 78.57% turnout of Stride shareholders.Rank in May submitted a bid of 151 pence per share to acquire the entire Stride business, valuing the operator at £115.3m (€129.3m/$144.0m). Should the deal go through, Rank said it would create an entity with scale and capability in the digital market, with pro forma digital net gaming revenues of around £185m.Stride has said that despite this shareholder approval, the deal is still subject to regulatory clearance from the GB Gambling Commission. The two parties are confident over this approval and anticipate that the transaction will close in the fourth quarter of this year.The news will come as a boost to Stride, which, on the same day as confirming it had accepted Rank’s offer, also reported a 13.0% year-on-year decline in revenue during the first half of its financial year.Net gaming revenue during the six months to February 28, 2019 amounted to £39.0m, down from £44.9m in the corresponding period last year. Operating profit also dipped from £4.3m to £2.5m, while adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation fell from £8.0m to £6.2m.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Strategy Stride shareholders back Rank Group acquisition Email Addresslast_img read more

RUST Architects planned an additional floor to an old apartment block in the north of Tel Aviv. The old neighborhood is being renovated and permits architects to add extensions to the apartment buildings that were built with at the time of the establishment of the State of Israel. The residential buildings that received the title “Railway Buildings” are 2 story structures that were built to house young families, university workers and civil servants in the 1950s.The specific housing structure has a number of stairwells for each block leading to the top floor apartments.Save this picture!© Yoav PeledRUST architects planned on the original top an additional floor with a sloping roof which created a large, tall space that turned the small apartment into a family house with an open balcony and a double-height public space. In order to let natural light in, 4 skylight windows were placed on the sloping roof so that all the interior spaces receive air and light.Save this picture!© Yoav PeledSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Yoav PeledIn order to maintain the simple and modernist design of the building, the architects maintained a functional and convenient division and a simple and suitable design. Shany Tal, an architect and partner at RUST Architects, says “that the process was first and foremost to create comfort in order to turn the small apartment into a family home that can be used by the family for many years to come with the changing functions of a growing family.”Save this picture!© Yoav PeledSave this picture!© Yoav Peled”The use of natural wood, concrete, terrazzo floor and light wood carpentry creates a pleasant environment and allows the family to give it a personal touch with personal objects and elements so that the architecture and fixed elements do not catch too much attention. Light was the most important element and entered gently from all facades and the sloping roof.”Save this picture!© Yoav PeledSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Yoav PeledThe architects planned the addition of the building but left the original concrete beams in order to keep the original character of the building, believing that Israeli housing buildings already have smart and good architecture that can be maximized during this period and not demolished or ignored.Save this picture!© Yoav PeledAll the carpentry and framing details in the house were designed by the architects who also created a white library which is the tallest element in the public space.

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Dec 13, 2012 SHARE Home Energy B20 Powering Navy Building Facebook Twitter Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy) Tom Hicks recently experienced a first-hand look at how biodiesel is being used to heat a Navy base. “The Navy uses an annual average of 30 million barrels of fuel per year which equates to about $4 to $5 billion of fuel cost,” Hicks said during the tour. Because of this, it is important to explore additional and alternative sources like we see here today at St. Julien’s Creek.” Hicks continued, “This is a perfect example of what the Navy is trying to do by using B20, a 20 percent biodiesel, 80 percent conventional fuel to run the steam plant from domestic sources that are competitively priced.” The first Navy plant in the Mid-Atlantic region to use B20 is located in St. Julien’s Creek Annex in Portsmouth, Virginia. The biodiesel blend will provide steam to heat 16 office buildings and 13 warehouses. Over the course of the winter, 235,000 gallons of B20 are expected to be used to create the heat. Previously the plant used traditional, petroleum-based fuel oil. According to theNational Biodiesel Board, the B20 blend is priced competitively with the petroleum based diesel, and will not increase the Navy’s costs to heat the base, while helping to meet the Secretary of the Navy’s goals for greater energy security.

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto. Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vaglio Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU Linkedin Twitter Facebook Facebook printLooking to avoid a fourth consecutive loss, TCU Football will have to limit a strong Kansas State running attack.Anchored by Alex Barnes, the Wildcats have averaged 250 yards and totaled 10 touchdowns on the ground in their last three contests. Barnes ranks second in the Big 12 with 102 yards per game with a league-high nine rushing scores.“You can’t play them the same way you play anyone else,” said head coach Gary Patterson. “If you do, they’ll embarrass you.”Patterson called the Wildcats’ game plan similar to a triple option team.“You can’t play base defense and take on double teams, on defense they’re not going to move around,” said Patterson. “You’re going to know where they stand but they’re very well coached and you have to beat them doing what they do. You know what’s coming, it’s just whether you can stop it or not.”Barnes ran for a career-best 250 yards at Baylor, the fifth-most in school history, with three touchdowns on the day. He also recorded 181 rushing yards and four touchdowns against Oklahoma State.Kansas State running back Alex Barnes (34) scores a touchdown during the second half of an NCAA college football game against Oklahoma State in Manhattan, Kan., Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018. (AP Photo/Orlin Wagner)Barnes and the Kansas State rushing attack have been able to succeed this season due to a veteran offensive line, anchored by Midseason All-American right tackle Dalton Risner.“They’re big and physical and do a great job,” Patterson said of the Wildcats’ offensive line. “You can tell they really work at it and what they’re trying to get accomplished. You don’t fool them very often.”Overall, Kansas State runs a well-managed program in Patterson’s eyes and has emulated his game after watching Wildcat head coach Bill Snyder.“Trying to evaluate people knowing what counts is on the field,” said Patterson, “and trying to run a program where you know the people who come out of it are good people.”The team’s weekly huddle before the halftime break was also inspired by Snyder. Patterson said he loves getting to talk to his team before they head into the locker room because of the short time frame and how each position separates into individual huddles during the halftime break.“Kansas State has been his life,” said Patterson. “As an alumni, you have to appreciate his efforts for what he’s done not only for the university and that city, the state, the people he knows and the things he’s trying to be a part of and the game of football period.”Against Kansas last week, the Horned Frogs held the Jayhawks to 58 rushing yards but allowed 249 passing yards in the 27-26 loss.Kansas State quarterback Skylar Thompson has thrown for 988 yards and five touchdowns in seven games this season and has rushed for 359 yards and four touchdowns. The Wildcats’ top receiver Isaiah Zuber heads the team with 41 catches for 496 receiving yards and three touchdowns.“They are going to be coached well and disciplined,” quarterback Michael Collins said. “We’re focused on ourselves and what we can do well to execute as well as we can on offense.”Collins was a bright spot from the loss, as he completed 23 of his 33 passes for 351 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.“Overall, as an offense, we played alright,” said Collins. “We had a bunch of yards, but in the end, we have to win. The quarterback’s job is to take care of the ball and win, and I didn’t do that. I have to do a better job going forward.”Quarterback Michael Collins (10) threw for 351 yards and a touchdown in his first career start. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comCollins was able to achieve his high completion percentage and yardage total without one of TCU’s top receivers KaVontae Turpin who was dismissed from the program last week.“We almost scored enough points to win a ballgame,” said Patterson. “We were able to complete some third and longs, keep his composure and stay in the pocket. He did it without [Turpin] and didn’t have some of those weapons. You have to give him a lot of credit.”On defense, Wildcats defensive back Duke Shelley has three interceptions on the season, with all three coming within the last three games. He also has 12 total passes defended this year, ranking him second in the Big 12 and sixth in the nation.The Wildcats averaged three sacks, 6.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions during their two games against Baylor and Oklahoma State this season. In their five games before the two-game stretch, they averaged one sack, three tackles for loss and 0.8 interceptions.Collins said the offense has to improve on finishing and taking care of the ball going forward.“There was an interception and on the first drive we got a few feet away from scoring and I just have to put it over,” said Collins. “We have to finish in the red zone. We want the seniors to have the best year possible, so we’re focusing on winning the next four games and taking it one game at a time with Kansas State.”Kickoff against Kansas State is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Indra Mohan Hakasam, correspondent for the daily Amar Assam published in Assam province in India’s extreme northeast, was kidnapped in June by the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA).”If the murder of Hakasam is confirmed, the political and military leaders of the ULFA must bear full responsibility,” said Reporters Without Borders. The local press report of his murder comes at a time of heightened violence with more than 50 people killed in the province in the past week. The international press freedom organisation has appealed to ULFA’s chairman Aradinda Rajkhowa and military leader Paresh Barua to explain the circumstances surrounding the death of the journalist. It also condemned the fact that once again a journalist should have fallen victim to Assam’s separatist conflict.Hakasam, correspondent at Goalpara for the Assam-language daily Amar Assam published in the provincial capital Guwahati, was abducted on 24 June by ULFA members. He was snatched at gunpoint from his home by two armed ULFA members Doleng Rava and Sanjib Rava. The journalist’s wife and two children had no news of him for five months, but recently the local press, citing rebel sources, has been reporting that he has been killed in captivity. His wife, Sabriti Hakasam, told Reporters Without Borders that she believed her husband had been kidnapped because of his independent and brave reporting. She would not believe he was dead until the UFLA provided some proof.The Journalists’ Union of Assam (JUA) held a public demonstration on 21 November to demand that the UFLA provide information about the fate of Hakasam.Journalists have often been caught in the crossfire in Assam’s violent conflict between security forces and separatist rebels, particularly the ULFA. At least five journalists have reportedly been killed in the north east of India in the past ten years. center_img to go further News News IndiaAsia – Pacific Organisation June 10, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on India November 24, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist kidnapped five months ago reportedly killed by Assam separatistslast_img read more
