Unite the union said in December that it was opposed to the French takeover. De La Rue’s biggest shareholders include Capital World Investors, which owns 15 per cent, Prudential, which has 12 per cent, and Capital Research and Management, which owns nine per cent of its stock. The company is advised by JP Morgan Cazenove and Rothschild. last_img read more

The site vaunts two scenic views of the surrounding landscape; on one side it overlooks the ancient center of Torrita, on the other the countryside towards the Trasimeno lake. The plot was sloping, with variable level curves from an altitude of ±0.00 to an altitude of +9.00.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaSlabs – ConcretePorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles – 20MMWoodAccoyaAccoya® Canals© Pietro Savorelli – A clear and rational organizational logic of the internal functions, a spatial and architectural configuration aimed at creating a “collective house”. – A residence in which the guests may, as far as possible, enjoy the same living conditions as they did in their original homes, while keeping in mind that it is a matter of a collective residence. – A building that relates to its surroundings coherentlywith the environmental andlandscape qualities, as wellas with the orograhpyof the site. Save this picture!© Pietro Savorelli The project consists of the construction of a complex ontwo floors built on a natural slope in such a way asto exploit the inclination of the land and limit excavations to a minimum. The upper floor houses the principal activities of the sanitary residence as well as the two housing units, each with 20 beds; the lower floor will contain the general services an the technical areas. Save this picture!© Pietro Savorelli The plan of the upper volume consists of a linear block with all the common facilities of the residence (living room and other shared areas, gym, sanitary services) dovetailed into the two housing units, each of which consists of two linear wings with rooms and relative bathrooms. The two wings are arranged symmetrically with respect to a central space, that houses the collective activities of each housing unit: living room, dining room, small shared kitchen, a central fireplace and a window opening to the terrace. The nucleus is therefore designed like a true “collective home” that centers on a large, bright and open central space for everyday life, that overlooks an outdoor area that may be used during the warm season. Each wing of room projects beyond the natural limit of the land, terminating in a loggia that opens towards the city. On the lower floor the linear body housing the services, partly built into the ground, is reserved for the personnel and features a free facade at road level with service entrances, and another facade against the ground, where corridors and lifts connect the two floors and allow an efficient distributive organization of the structure. Save this picture!© Pietro Savorelli An L-shaped wall faced in terracotta closes the unit housing the common spaces towards the upper part of the slope, forming a large roof -almost an ample terrace, seen from the houses above – with openings of various dimensions that let light through to the area below. The L-shaped wall makes it possible to vary the height of the interiors: the main corridor that runs along the entire upper block of the collective activities and the main rooms of the residence have 5.10 m high ceilings, while the strip between the corridor and the main environments, housing service rooms, has an internal ceiling height of 3.1 0 m, because an accessible continuous technical area with channels and main installations is installed above it. On the outside the body housing the collective activities is flanked by a continuous full-height loggia, interrupted by a series of openings corresponding to the windows behind. The main entrance, at the far end of the area housing collective activities, is covered by the projecting roof, and the same applies to the exit from the common living room, that opens towards the valley on the opposite side. Alongside the entrance the church projects with its “tower” volume: an empty shell inside which the natural light filters, contributing to characterize the public premises of the residential structure.

Taiwan: ministers cannot choose the questions they are asked

first_img During an appearance before legislators on 9 November about a fighter jet that went missing during an exercise over the sea, Feng publicly insulted a Radio Free Asia reporter and boasted of having asked his staff not to invite her to future press conferences.In a question at a press conference the day before, the RFA journalist had suggested that the missing pilot may have betrayed his country and defected to China – a suggestion deemed to have been disrespectful to the pilot and his family.RSF condemns the defence minister’s comments and asks him to reverse this decision without delay. It also calls on Prime Minister William Lai to ensure that his ministers fully respect media freedom.“Public servants do not have the right to decide which journalists report the news or the questions they ask,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s Taipei-based East Asia bureau. “Journalists have an essential function to play in democracies and they must often ask difficult questions in the public interest.”The Chinese world’s only democracy, Taiwan is ranked 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index. When President Tsai Ing-wen received an RSF delegation in July, she expressed the desire to continue developing media freedom in Taiwan. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Taiwanese defence minister Feng Shih-kuan to reverse his decision to ban a reporter from his press conferences and points out that public servants do not have the right to choose the questions they are asked by the media.

Council of Europe Bank backs Opera site with another €85m loan

It will also involve the adaptive reuse of the existing Georgian heritage buildings on the site and the construction of a new public square with pedestrian links to adjacent city streets.The Opera site employment campus is expected to meet the growing demand for high-quality office accommodation in Limerick. In addition to generating jobs, the loans provided by both the EIB and the CEB will protect the cultural and historical heritage of Limerick, while also modernising the city core.Commenting on the approval of the European bank loans, Mr Noonan said that when he was Minister for Finance, he appointed John Moran to the EIB board of directors.“Having people in there that I had worked with before helped get it through”, Deputy Noonan said.“In fact I thought we would have had the announcement before I retired in June, but I knew it was far enough up the road then.”He explained that the CEB was “put in place after the war to rebuild bombed out cities, so we are going to get another €85m from them and that is going to make this a very exciting time for Limerick, something of which I am extremely proud to have been associated and directly involved with.CEB Governor Rolf Wenzel said the loan reaffirmed the excellent cooperation between the CEB and Ireland.“I am pleased the Bank will be contributing to ‘Limerick 2030’ by supporting Limerick’s urban regeneration, which is expected to have significant benefits for the local population and the wider community. Improving living conditions is an integral part of the Bank’s focus on promoting sustainable development in CEB member countries.”Last week’s EIB announcement was seen as a major step forward for the project and this week, the additional backing given by the CEB will make the Opera site a fully funded project.See more Limerick news here BusinessLimerickNewsCouncil of Europe Bank backs Opera site with another €85m loanBy Staff Reporter – November 22, 2017 4391 Email Print TAGSCouncil of Europe BankDenis BrosnanEuropean Investment BankJohn MoranLimerick 2030Opera Site Why should I not have the right to vote for whom I want? last_img read more

Relative picking up children for school finds family of 5 dead: Police

first_imgMattGush/iStock(ABINGTON, Mass.) — A family of five, including 9-year-old twins and an 11-year-old girl, has been found dead in a two-story condominium in Massachusetts, police said.A member of the family called 911 regarding a “medical emergency” at 135 Center Ave. in Abington, Plymouth County, around 7:30 a.m. on Monday, District Attorney Tim Cruz said during a news conference.The relative had gone to the house to help get the three children to school, he said.“This is just a horrible, horrible event here for the town of Abington and for the children and the schools,” Cruz said.Cruz did not say how the family member was related to the victims.“The person found an individual bleeding, laying in a position on the couch in the downstairs area and they called the police,” he said.Police and emergency services first found the body of a 40-year-old woman and the bodies of the three children — girl and boy twins and the 11-year-old. They then found the body of a 43-year-old man.The victims were confirmed to be members of the same family, Cruz said. Their identities have not been released because other family and next-of-kin have yet to be notifed about the deaths, he said.“This appears to be an isolated incident,” Cruz said.Authorities said they were not aware of any ongoing domestic issues in the home.“There was no indication whatsoever and no previous calls that would certainly indicate any type of an issue going on at that household,” Abington Police Chief David Majenski said during the news conference.The deaths were all a result of gunshot wounds, according to a preliminary investigation, he said. A medical examiner would determine the official manner and cause of death. Cruz said he expected police to find the weapon or weapons involved.“This is an incredibly terrible event. … It’s a crime. … A crime occurred in that building and three little children are gone forever as a result of this,” he said. “There’s not a lot of answers to a heck of a lot of questions.”Massachusetts State Police were reportedly helping Abington police in the active and ongoing investigation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Student Journalists Need Immunity?

first_imgBy GAIL RIECKENCity-County Observer Statehouse EditorIt was refreshing to read the Statehouse File about the young high school journalist testifying before the House Education Committee. She was testifying in support of HB1016.If the bill becomes law, it would provide freedom of speech and freedom of press protections for student journalists in grades 7 through 12 and in state educational institutions.Anu Nattam, the presenter, is editor-in-chief of Plainfield High School’s news magazine. She was testifying because school officials were sending signals they might start censoring the magazine’s content.The conflict started when a school board member became upset over articles about LGBTQ+ interests, dating violence and finding a lasting relationship. ( Plainfield High School’s Dating Guide.)While I’m impressed with the student standing up for what she feels is right, I am equally impressed with the person who must be her teacher.Here is a teacher who I am certain must have weighed all the risks helping students understand our present-day society. Let’s thank her for helping students deal with the realities that are with them every day.This bill is about immunity for journalism students, but it is also very much about setting up an environment where school administrators and teachers can offer the best educational experience for their students.HB1016 promotes an opportunity for great education.The vote on HB 1016 could go to the House floor as early as Tuesday. I hope the legislature makes what amendments are necessary and pushes this legislation on to the Senate.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
