What the other papers say this morning

first_img whatsapp FINANCIAL TIMESNORTHERN ROCK TO OFFER 90 PER CENT MORTGAGESNorthern Rock is poised to launch a range of mortgages offering up to 90 per cent of a property’s value, marking the nationalised bank’s return to riskier lending three years after its collapse and government bail-out. The lossmaking lender could make the new high loan-to-value mortgages available as early as today, according to people familiar with the plans, as it seeks to boost revenue ahead of a return to private ownership.INTEREST IN LONDON LAND SOARSCompetition for land in London is hitting pre-recession levels, as international investors prepare to inject more than £5bn into the city’s lucrative residential property market. The money, more than £1bn of which has been raised since the start of the year, will target high-end developments and could lead to the construction of about 10,000 homes in the capital. STEEL MILLS FACE RECORD PRICES FOR IRON ORESteel mills are set to pay record prices for iron ore next quarter, as resurgent global demand butts up against limited supply. The cost of iron ore, used to make steel, is critical to the global economy as it filters into steel prices and, ultimately, into the cost of everyday goods. The sharp rise in costs – up from 23-25 per cent from the first quarter – will add to concerns about inflation as oil and food prices are also rising rapidly.EXXON URGES US TO ALLOW DEEPWATER DRILLINGExxonMobil, the largest US oil company, backed by industry groups, has urged regulators to allow deep water drilling to resume in the Gulf of Mexico, as the turmoil in north Africa raises the pressure on the US to develop its own sources of supply.THE TIMESBREAKING UP WATER FIRMS “COULD SAVE MILLIONS”Breaking up English water companies and allowing businesses and local authorities to choose their own supplier could slash bills by tens of millions of pounds a year, according to the Scottish water regulator. “The savings and efficiencies that have been achieved in Scotland and shared equally between investors and customers has meant a two per cent per annum benefit to customers,” Alan Sutherland, chief executive of the Water Industry Commission for Scotland, said.INDIA CRAVES CHAMPAGNE LIFESTYLE, AT RIGHT PRICEThe lush hills of Nashik in India bear little resemblance to France’s Champagne. Yet here, the maker of Moët & Chandon plans to produce its next sparkling wine.The Daily TelegraphA1 GRAND PRIX RACE FIRM FACES FRAUD INQUIRYThe Serious Fraud Office has started looking into companies behind the A1 Grand Prix Series – the collapsed rival to Formula One – whose creditors still claim to be owed more than £400m. It is almost two years since the event ran out of money, cancelling a key race on Australia’s Gold Coast and calling in the administrators to its UK operating company.MALE PENSIONERS COULD LOSE OUT IN EU SEX DISCRIMINATION RULINGMale pensioners could lose around £340 a year if the European court backs gender equality rules for insurance companies this week. Men could be left thousands of pounds worse off if the European Court of Human Justice rules companies can no longer use gender to calculate annuity rates and insurance premiums.THE WALL STREET JOURNALEUROPEGM HASTENS TUNEUP OF OPELGeneral Motors is pushing to speed up a restructuring at its European Opel operation, long an unprofitable quagmire for the auto maker and the missing link in its budding turnaround. GM Chairman and Chief Executive Dan Akerson, impatient with the losses, is turning his attention to the Opel problem now that the company has returned to the public markets and is producing a solid profit in North America, people familiar with the matter said.EURO AIMS FOR $1.40A hawkish tone from European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet at the central bank’s policy meeting this coming week could push the euro toward $1.40, analysts expect, but the impact of Middle East upheaval on currencies remains a wild card.

All Blacks win Tri Nations opener against the Wallabies

first_imgSaturday Jul 18, 2009 All Blacks win Tri Nations opener against the Wallabies New Zealand drew first blood in the 2009 Bledisloe Cup and Tri-Nations series with an entertaining, hard-fought 22-16 victory over Australia in Auckland on Saturday.With talisman skipper Richie McCaw back to lead the way, the All Blacks shrugged off their indifferent early-season form to come from behind and lay down a marker ahead of Tests in South Africa in the coming two weekends.McCaw produced a strong performance but the return of Rodney So’oialo, Conrad Smith and Sitiveni Sivivatu also helped instil some composure and direction in the team.The Australians raced to a 10-0 lead with less than 10 minutes on the clock as Berrick Barnes ghosted past some indifferent All Blacks defence to touch down after four minutes and Matt Giteau’s conversion and a penalty gave them a handy lead.Stephen Donald then missed his first shot at goal but made no mistake with his second attempt a minute later when Benn Robinson was marched 10 metres for throwing the ball away to put the penalty within kicking distance, but a poor decision by Donald in the 18th minute proved to be a turning point in the game as the New Zealanders got their tails up.The ball came back off the legs of Giteau who dived forward to smother it before popping the ball up to Barnes. He evaded the All Blacks defence but held onto the ball too long then saw his pass to George Smith hit the flanker and go forward with the line begging. McCaw was then penalised for playing the ball off his feet.Giteau saw his second penalty hit the upright before going over to put the visitors 13-3 ahead, but the All Blacks got themselves right back in the game though with a try to their skipper.The ball found its way to Donald but he was nailed in the tackle and Conrad Smith gathered the ball and set McCaw away. Donald’s conversion reduced the deficit to 13-10 and the score remained that way to half-time.Donald got the All Blacks ahead early in the second half with two successful penalty kicks before Giteau replied to level the scores 16-16.Hooker Stephen Moore was penalised for killing the ball allowing Donald to slot his fifth three-pointer of the night six minutes from time to put the home side 22-16 in front.

The sun that is rising Has found some clouds, The roof sounds with a slight drizzle, memories of Ezequiel and Alfredo, love; I open the windows and spring has brought me its sun on the thin wings of the wind.

Physical necessity, a flexible and open space where one person lives and at the same time has the duality of constantly hosting many guests. Symbolic necessity, a rich space in terms of a sensitive and reflective dwelling for Delia.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaThere is a large continuous room, in order to characterize each activity in the house, this space is organized from four elements carefully arranged in relation to other physical or imaginary that are vestiges of Delia’s life.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Albano GarciaThe thought spaces never sought to be a neutral or technical operation, on the contrary, the material and symbolic occupation of the space in the house can be conceived as the struggle for the power to assign meanings (discourses) to the material elements and objects. In this tension, more or less secret between the different discourses that dispute the meaning of spaces, nests the political dimension of living in the Delia house.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaSave this picture!© Albano GarciaLife unfolds within a ring around the fully glazed central courtyard, colonized by a garden that organizes and articulates the different uses. A continuous metal roof that covers the entire extension of the plant, inside covered in wood phenolics, generates a contrast of light, color, and texture with the rest of the exterior that tries to pass to an austere plane. At the same time, it floats thanks to a glazed gap on four volumes on its front that are in contact with the ground, two of them surround the side faces, and form an envelope that embraces the large central interior space; leaving an open space towards the bottom where it culminates in a gallery with a total opening to the private park.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaA spatial sequence is proposed in the transition from public to private space. The visitor is invited through a large roof that at the access presents its largest scale, to then access the most secret and intimate part of the house. On the way to the entry point through the slope of the roof and the terrain, the spatial relationship begins to provide greater intimacy, continuing the sequence, once inside the patio becomes the protagonist, then all the spaces of the house can be observed connected to each other.Save this picture!© Albano GarciaProject gallerySee allShow lessCercal House / Atelier DataSelected ProjectsVeren Place Sovetskaya Residential Complex / SPEECH architectural officeSelected Projects Share Year:  Save this picture!© Albano Garcia+ 21Curated by Clara Ott Share Argentina Houses “COPY” Area:  210 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lead Architect: Delia House / Caparroz Arquitectura Photographs:  Albano Garcia Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/951637/delia-house-caparroz-arquitectura Clipboard Photographs 2020 ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/951637/delia-house-caparroz-arquitectura Clipboard Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Don Juan Deco, FV, FV Ferrum, JOHNSON, Procreate, Tromen Architects: Caparroz Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Martin Caparroz Projects CopyHouses•Argentina CopyAbout this officeCaparroz ArquitecturaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on November 22, 2020Cite: “Delia House / Caparroz Arquitectura” [Casa Delia / Caparroz Arquitectura] 22 Nov 2020.

Unable to prevail through ground war, U.S. bombs Somalia

first_imgOn March 7, the Pentagon announced it had killed 150 members of the al-Shabab [“the youth”] guerrilla movement in a bombing operation in Somalia.These military actions are part and parcel of a broader U.S. strategy to dominate the Horn of Africa. The administration of President Barack Obama has continued the military and political intervention in Somalia aimed at remaking the political landscape of the East African state, which shares borders with some of Washington’s closest collaborators in the region, including Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya.The administration’s rationale for a renewed air campaign in Somalia was to downgrade and destroy training bases for al-Shabab. The Islamist movement has not only continued its war against the Western-backed regime in Mogadishu but has crossed over into neighboring Kenya and Uganda in apparent retaliation for them having deployed troops in Somalia as members of the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM), established in 2007.A Pentagon press release claimed that the area it bombed “is a training facility of al-Shabab, which is a terrorist group affiliated with al-Qaida. The strike was conducted using manned and unmanned aircraft and the fighters who were scheduled to depart the camp posed an imminent threat to U.S. and AMISOM forces.” (March 7)An escalation in the Pentagon’s air campaign in Somalia coincides with the years-long proxy war inside the country, which has resulted in the deployment of 22,000 AMISOM troops from eight different African states. They are trained, armed and given logistical support by Washington, the United Nations and the European Union. In addition, the Somalia National Army (SNA) is supplied by Western governments and their allies in an effort to defeat the al-Shabab organization, which maintains control over large areas of the country.This bombing operation was followed on March 9 by reports that at least 15 al-Shabab fighters had been killed in another raid led ostensibly by the imperialist-backed and trained SNA troops, working in conjunction with U.S. Special Forces. News of the second attack emanated from al-Shabab itself and a Somali federal government official.Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, a spokesperson for al-Shabab, stressed that foreign soldiers had attacked their base, located approximately 30 miles from Mogadishu, the capital. He said the attackers “were masked and spoke foreign languages which our fighters could not understand. We do not know who they were but we foiled them.” (Reuters, March 9)According to Abu Musab, al-Shabab lost only one fighter, contradicting reports from other media and governmental sources. The Islamist organization said that the military commandos landed along the River Shabelle. The suspected Special Forces unit was armed with M16 rifles and rocket launchers, utilized in the attack.U.S. government officials later announced that their military troops were involved in the attacks, alongside Western-backed Somali military forces.Decades-long U.S. intervention deepens hostilityThis war of containment, domination and control of the resource-rich Horn of Africa state began 10 years ago, when Washington attempted to impose a political dispensation on the country beginning in 2006.The 1992-1994 occupation of Somalia by thousands of U.S. Marines, U.N. troops and forces from Canada and other states began after a popular uprising. Since then, successive U.S. administrations have sought avenues to interfere in the internal affairs of the country.In 2006, an Islamic Courts Union (UIC) movement began to solidarize with local organizations to establish a political system that operated independently of the foreign policy imperatives of the administration of former President George W. Bush. Washington encouraged its contacts inside Somalia to force out the Islamic Courts, which proved to be a disaster.Sentiment toward the U.S. government became even more hostile, leading to the invasion of Somalia by neighboring Ethiopia, a staunch partner of Washington in its so-called “war on terrorism.” However, the intervention of the Ethiopian military, then under the leadership of late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, was by no means sufficient to drive the Islamic Courts movement out of Mogadishu and other areas in the central and south of the country where it had taken control.Over the next three years, the Islamic Courts split over whether to enter a transitional government in Mogadishu backed by the imperialist states. By 2009, the al-Shabab group emerged as the main opposition in the capital to the U.S. and British supported regime.The escalating deployment of forces from Uganda, Djibouti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and other African states strengthened the AMISOM operation, driving al-Shabab out of most of Mogadishu and some other areas of the country in the central and southern regions.Nevertheless, al-Shabab remained strong, attracting fighters from other countries and reportedly pledging allegiance to al-Qaida.At present, the European Union, one of the major funding and logistical supporters of AMISOM, said it would reduce its assistance by 20 percent. This announcement has prompted sharp rebukes from those states that have served as ground units propping up the federal government in Mogadishu.According to an article published by Jane’s Defense Weekly, “The move was criticized during a summit of leaders from AMISOM’s contributing countries in Djibouti on 28 February. Kenya’s president Uhuru Kenyatta said in his speech that the international community must provide adequate support for the mission in the run-up to elections later this year.” (March 3)Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said, “This is the time to strengthen AMISOM through a surge in troops and resources, not weaken it.”The same Jane’s Defense Weekly report noted that “a joint declaration released at the end of the summit said the leaders noted ‘with serious concern the decision by the EU to reduce financial support to AMISOM troop allowance by 20 percent, especially during this critical phase of AMISOM operations,’ and called on the U.N. to cover the resulting shortfall.”The Obama administration’s recent bombing of the country signals a greater reliance on airpower and the drawing down of military assistance to AMISOM and the SNA. Exposing further the dominant imperialist role in the war against al-Shabab in Somalia, AMISOM has announced that it will rely more on airpower, in light of the reduction of funding from the EU.Kenya’s Nation newspaper stated on Feb. 21 that AMISOM “may have to concentrate more on air strikes than ground attacks in its war against al-Shabab militants to minimize expenses after one of its main donors reduced funding.”These developments provide no real plan for reducing the escalating Pentagon, Central Intelligence Agency and State Department involvement in Somalia and the Horn of Africa. The U.S. Africa Command (Africom), which has thousands of troops in Djibouti and other African states, has been bolstered under the Obama administration.The absence of any substantive discussions regarding foreign policy in Africa during the presidential campaign leaves policymaking to the intelligence agencies and the Pentagon, much to the detriment of people in Africa as well as the U.S. Unless this situation changes dramatically, there will be no real shift in Washington’s foreign policy in the region.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She has worked for TCU360 since her freshman year, and she is currently the Executive Editor of The Skiff. printTitle IX complaints will now be handled through the new Office of Institutional Equity, which has streamlined the process for filing and monitoring submissions. The announcement came in an email to the campus community from Chief Inclusion Officer Dr. Darron Turner on Sept. 3.

Turner also wrote that students will now be able to file Title IX complaints directly through the OIE in a streamlined process, creating a “single point of contact for tracking submissions and monitoring the process through the resolution stage.”The new director of the OIE is Sharon Fernandes Gooding. Gooding was promoted to this position after serving as TCU’s coordinator of diversity and inclusion in the ODI since August 2019, according to her LinkedIn page.The new director of the Office of Institutional Equity, Sharon Fernandes Gooding.

The theme is “REFLECT. REIMAGINE. RECONNECT.” “[This theme] recognizes the need to reflect on our past as well as recognize the complex ways our lives intersect so that we can build a new movement focused on personal and systemic change,” Boschini said.  The conference will feature keynote speaker Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, as well as four panels discussing intersectionality, anti-racism, racial healing and social activism, according to Boschini’s email. The virtual conference will be Oct. 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Registration instructions for the event will be announced this week.  Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution + posts TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter ReddIt Twitter Facebook Linkedin Facebook Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ The Skiff: April 8, 2021 The Brown-Lupton University Union.
