Bankers face a 90pc bonus tax

first_img IRISH finance minister Brian Lenihan said yesterday he would impose a 90 per cent tax on bankers’ bonuses, in a move to try to silence critics who have said the banking sector drove Ireland into the ground.“I do propose to introduce the amendment to the finance bill to put this matter beyond any doubt and provide a high rate, a 90 per cent rate of charge on any…bankers’ bonuses,” Lenihan said. Lenihan was referring to a bill which is expected to be ruled on early next year.

Living on Kunstcampus Winning Proposal / Léon Wohlhage Wernik …

first_img “COPY” CopyLéon Wohlhage Wernik Architekten was recently announced as the first prize winner for their proposal in the Living on Kunstcampus competition. Situated in the heart of Berlin, on the estate of the Hamburger Bahnhof, a new quarter will be created there, including the dominant urban planning element called the “Kunstkubus”. A lengthy building with a faceted surface gives the residential area its own urban planning presence. All apartments radiate spaciousness, and can be freely partitioned and enter into a relationship with the city through large loggias, or so-called “green rooms”. More images and architects’ description after the break.Save this picture!© Léon Wohlhage Wernik ArchitektenThe project’s title itself, “Living on the Kunstcampus”, shows that it is aimed at a metropolitan clientele that values this special location on the Berlin-Spandau shipping canal. A fine view unfolds in all directions: towards the east over the canal and onto a heterogeneous, formerly industrially dominated region, and towards the west onto the new park. In such a central location, other means of design are called for compared to those of the 19th century. The theme of art widens the horizon, reaching out to New York, Paris or Milan, instead of evoking a typical Berlin quarter or the city’s Grunewald forest. That is also reflected in the architecture.Save this picture!site planInside the apartments, a service duct allows all the rooms to be aligned as enfilades, even in the larger units. The apartments are positioned in a regular grid and open out towards the exterior space by means of two V-shaped glass fronts. The facade remains consistent and is folded over the storeys to create a regular surface with projections and recesses. The result is a crystallite object in which the environment is reflected like a picture puzzle.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Muko / FujiwaraMuro ArchitectsSelected ProjectsLos Faiques Dwellings / DURAN&HERMIDA arquitectos asociadosSelected Projects Share Projects Apartments “COPY” Living on Kunstcampus Winning Proposal / Léon Wohlhage Wernik Architekten Save this picture!© Léon Wohlhage Wernik ArchitektenWritten by Alison Furuto Share Germany Living on Kunstcampus Winning Proposal / Léon Wohlhage Wernik ArchitektenSave this projectSaveLiving on Kunstcampus Winning Proposal / Léon Wohlhage Wernik Architekten ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/350595/living-on-kunstcampus-winning-proposal-on-wohlhage-wernik-architekten Clipboard ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/350595/living-on-kunstcampus-winning-proposal-on-wohlhage-wernik-architekten Clipboard CopyAbout this officeLéon Wohlhage Wernik ArchitektenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsBerlinHousingResidentialGermanyPublished on March 27, 2013Cite: Alison Furuto. “Living on Kunstcampus Winning Proposal / Léon Wohlhage Wernik Architekten” 27 Mar 2013.

Lloyds TSB Foundation launches 2005 guidelines

first_img Howard Lake | 10 January 2005 | News The majority of the foundation’s 3,000 grants currently fall under the ‘Community Programme’ – 88.5% of funds distributed in 2004. The average regional donation was £6,000 and England and Wales-wide donation £15,000. The guidelines also give details of the ‘Collaborative Programme’ which encourages ‘joined up’ working within the voluntary sector and with public agencies (7% of its funds in 2004). ‘New Initiatives’ will continue to be funded which demonstrate innovation, and where there is a clear intention to roll out pilot projects across England and Wales (3.5% of funds in 2004).The new thematic programmes for 2006 will account for one-third of the foundation’s grant-making budget. The first of these will build on the Collaborative Programme and the foundation will consult during 2005 on other potential themes. The Community Programme will continue with approximately two-thirds of the Foundation’s grant-making budget. From 2006, the New Initiatives Programme will no longer be a specific programme in its current format. The new Guidelines for 2006 will be published in November 2005. The Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales has published its new ‘Guidelines for Charities who are Applying for a Grant 2005’ for regional and England and Wales-wide grants.For 2005 most of the foundation’s funding policies remain unchanged. However, the guidelines mention that in 2006 series of new thematic programmes will be included.Grants for 2005 are given to grassroots charities which help disadvantaged and disabled people to play a fuller a role in the community. The foundation funds a wide range of social and community needs, including core funding, from disability information services to community centres and telephone helplines.

Alarm about Al-Jazeera journalist on hunger strike since January

first_img Follow the news on Egypt May 13, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Alarm about Al-Jazeera journalist on hunger strike since January News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information February 6, 2021 Find out more EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned about the fate of Abdullah Al-Shamy, an Al-Jazeera reporter who has been held since 14 August 2013 and who, according to his lawyer, was transferred to another location yesterday that is being kept secret.Shamy’s physical condition is very worrying because he has been on hunger strike for more than three and a half months. He stopped eating on 21 January in protest against his arbitrary detention and the fact that no formal charges have been brought against him since his arrest.“We fear the worst following his transfer because Shamy is in more need of proper medical attention than ever,” said Reporters Without Borders research director Lucie Morillon. “We urge the authorities to tell his family and lawyer where he has been transferred. He must quickly be given appropriate medical treatment before being freed. The authorities are responsible for his life and state of health.”Shamy’s brother told Al-Masry Al-Youm: “The medical report attests to the fact that my brother’s health has deteriorated considerably and does not allow him to be transferred to another prison (…) He needs to be transferred quickly to a hospital outside the prison.”According to this report, by Dr. Mohamed Osama Al-Homsi, Shamy is suffering from chronic anaemia, a fall in the level of red corpuscles in his blood, and kidney failure, and “could die within a few days.”Abdullah Al-Karyuni, a former member of the doctors’ union, told Al-Jazeera: “The type of care that Abdullah Al-Shamy needs cannot be found in Egyptian prisons because they do not respect human rights.”Shamy’s wife, Jihad Khaled, has begun a hunger strike in support of her husband that has resulted in a marked deterioration in her own health.Shamy’s lawyer, Shaaban Saeed, told Agence France-Presse that he is accused of joining a “terrorist group” and spreading false news. “My client is paying the price for working for a channel that opposes the ruling regime,” he said. On 3 May, a judge ordered Shamy held for another 45 days. A total of 17 journalists, including four Al-Jazeera employees, are currently detained in Egypt.

A journalist arrested and sent to Evin prison, another gets three-year sentence

Bastani was freed after several hours but Gorbanpour was transferred to Evin prison. This brings the number of journalists and cyber-dissidents detained in Iran to 11. Also yesterday, a Tehran revolutionary court sentenced journalist Emadoldin Baghi to three years in prison and passed suspended sentences on his wife, Fatemeh Kamali Ahmad Sarahi, editor of the now-closed monthly Jameh-e-no, and his daughter.“How can critical journalists survive this cold, compliant judicial machinery that hounds them relentlessly in order to force them into exile and thereby silence them?” the press freedom organisation asked. “They have to face wild and baseless charges for which they can be given prison sentences.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Coming just two weeks after the death sentences imposed on two journalists in the northwest, yesterday’s developments confirm that the human rights situation in Iran is getting worse by the day. Like members of the feminist and student movements, journalists are being subjected to more and more harassment.”The former editor of Jomhouriat, a daily newspaper that was closed in July 2004, Baghi received a three-year sentence yesterday for writing articles defending persons who were sentenced to death in the southern Khozestan region. The charges were “activities against national security” and “publicity in favour of the regime’s opponents.”His wife and his daughter, Maryam Baghi, were given three-year suspended prison sentences and five years of probation for taking part in a series of human rights workshops in Dubai in 2004. The charges were “meeting and colluding with the aim of disrupting national security.”Aged 45, Baghi and his wife have been subjected to repeated summonses for questioning by intelligence ministry officials. He was released on 6 February 2004 after serving a three-year prison sentence for “attacking national security” that he received in 2000. On leaving prison, he set up an organisation to defend the rights of prisoners of conscience. It is still functioning. He has been banned from leaving the country since 5 October 2004.Bastani and Gorbanpour, the two journalists arrested yesterday, work for several publications including the online newspaper Roozonline. Bastani was freed after several hours but was ordered to appear in court in Tehran today. Gorbanpour was transferred to security section 209 in Tehran’s Evin prison.The charges against Bastani and Gorbanpour were not revealed. Bastani was sentenced in 2003 to six months in prison, 70 lashes and a five-year ban on working as a journalist. He was again imprisoned in 2005 for covering a demonstration for the release of journalist Akbar Ganji. A third Roozonline contributor, Soheil Assefi, received a summons to appear before a Tehran court today after prosecutor’s office agents searched his home, taking personal documents and the hard disk of this computer.Meanwhile, Reporters Without Borders launched a petition for the release of journalists Adnan Hassanpour and Abdolvahed “Hiva” Botimar today after judicial spokesman Alireza Jamshidi yesterday confirmed that a court in Marivan, in Iran’s Kurdish northwest region, sentenced the two men to hang for being “mohareb,” which means “enemies of God.”Sign the petition Follow the news on Iran August 1, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A journalist arrested and sent to Evin prison, another gets three-year sentence February 25, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The camp offers six creative studios – animation, music, style, dance, culinary and building through which campers have the ability to express themselves freely in a world liberated from adult judgment. “It’s not our job to dictate what the story should be,” Steve Susskind says. “It’s our job to help them tell their stories.”In addition to its studios and recreational activities like water slides and zip lines which are offered at all locations, Steve and Kate’s Camp is partnering with Los Angeles groups to offer local programming as well. As part of its ‘Specials’ campers in LA will be graced with local workshop leaders like Victoria Goring – a stage combat director for stage and film – who will expose children to the dynamics of stage combat in order to create original moves connecting action to storytelling. Steve and Kate’s Camp is also partnering with local CSA provider SavRaw which delivers organic food boxes to 25 neighborhoods in the greater Los Angeles area and now four more as the camp will serve as a host for SavRaw at its LA locations. Food from SavRaw will also be incorporated into the camp’s culinary studio.Steve & Kate’s Camp is equally flexible for parents, liberating them from the frustration of weekly sessions. There are two ways to play: The Day Pass and The Membership. Parents can buy any number of Day Passes and use them anytime. Unused paid passes are automatically refunded in full at summer’s end. The Membership is one fee that covers the whole summer and if a camper doesn’t use enough to justify the cost of the Membership his/her account is converted to Day Pass rate and the difference in cost is refunded automatically. Both plans allow families to attend anytime from 7:30 am to 6 pm, at any location and it even includes lunch and snacks.Lunch at Steve & Kate’s is a big deal. Chef Nate Keller, former Executive Chef at Google, has joined the team full-time and has developed a culturally diverse menu based on Italian, Mexican, Japanese, American and French cuisines. Some items are adventurous–coq au vin and eggplant parm–and others are kids’ classics–quesadillas and mac & cheese. He uses local and organic ingredients whenever he can and puts healthy twists on items like sneaking cauliflower into the mac & cheese sauce so that the meal is well balanced. Lunch comes alive thanks to the onsite cooks who fire each dish right before the kids eat. In keeping with the philosophy, campers can choose one of six options each day or eat them all if they are ambitious.Activities include:Studios: Nestled inconspicuously within Steve & Kate’s are six creative hives where campers lose themselves in uninhibited exploration. Inevitably, campers venture into one or more of them. Inside, they find copious supplies and professional equipment. Each studio is available every day at every location. Studios include: Stop-Motion Animation, Music Recording, Building, Dance, Culinary Arts and Style.Weekly specials: Each week there is a mind-blowing new thrill –a hurricane water slide, a zip-line, air cannons, rock climbing, obstacle courses, inflatable hamster wheels, water balloon launchers. Expect the unexpected.Daily specials: Every day of the week has its own special activity. Whether it’s go-kart racing, playing Frisbee® golf, juggling diabolos on a balance board, or traversing a slackline, no two days of the week look the same.Show Specials: At least once a week, campers are surprised with wild new phenomena—a King Cheetah, a stage combat workshop led by child actors, performances by a young dance troupe, a reptile show with a blue tongue skink and a python. Of course it could also be a 10-year old beatboxer. Or a violin prodigy. Dozens of novel acts grace the stage—many performed by inspiring youth as a way of showing what young people are capable of.Pure play: The choices for campers are virtually endless. They have a self-serve supply of books, strategy games like chess and Magic cards, thousands of precision-cut construction blocks, foosball, pogo sticks and stilts. They jump into rounds of dodgeball and capture the flag. And win prizes finding the rubber chicken and at Game Show.Sports: Soccer, hockey, racquet sports and field polo action take place in our custom, kid-sized inflatable stadium, where the ball doesn’t go out and the action rarely stops.Filmmaker-In-Residence: Camp becomes a movie studio lot each day when campers collaborate as actors and crew with our Filmmaker-in-Residence. Films are scripted, shot and edited, then premiered at Camper Showcase across all of the 39 locations.Please Note: Specific dates vary by location and are subject to change depending on school calendars. Camp is closed on July 4th.
