Ma, former chief financial officer of Lenovo, joined TPG’s Asia team as managing director and a partner in 2007.EX-REGULATOR CALLS FOR RETURN OF BANK DIVIDENDSWeak banks and those in receipt of state aid must be allowed to resume dividend payments while they build their capital reserves or the broader economy will suffer, a former top US bank regulator has warned. “Preventing profitable banks from paying reasonable dividends impedes bank lending and economic growth,” Bill Isaac, former US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation chairman, said.INVESTORS SIGNAL APPETITE FOR GREEN BANK PLANNick Clegg will on Thursday seek to thrash out an agreement on the size and scope of the green investment bank as a clutch of Britain’s biggest institutional investors write to David Cameron signalling they would be willing to invest in the government’s flagship initiative. Investors representing over £500bn in assets told the prime minister that they would have appetite for green investment bank bonds.BAD FORECASTS HURT BANK’S REPUTATIONAusterity, snow and banks’ health have all perturbed economic forecasters this past year. Many complain they now also have a rather erratic central bank to deal with. It is impossible to find respected economists who believe the conspiracy theory that the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee is deliberately trying to inflate away Britain’s debts.THE TIMESTAXPAYER FACES LOSSES ON BANK’S MONEY-PRINTING SCHEMEThe Bank of England is at risk of recording billions of pounds of losses on its money-printing scheme as government bond values sink, according to analysts. Estimated profits on the Bank’s holdings of UK government bonds, or gilts, have fallen from £26 billion in August last year to £10 billion today, according to research by Henderson Global Investors.FOUNDERS TO MAKE £60M AS WILLIAMS TRIES TO HARNESS POWER OF THE PLCThe founders of Williams Grand Prix will make up to £60 million when it becomes the first Formula One team to float its shares. Sir Frank Williams said that the team would be valued at about €265 million (£225 million) after its stock market listing early next month.The Daily TelegraphSKY JOINS FORCES WITH HBO TO MAKE SECOND SERIES OF STRIKE BACKBSkyB is to make its first co-production with the American cable network HBO/Cinemax, in a deal thought to be worth over £10m. The agreement will see Sky’s SAS drama Strike Back, made by the independent production company Left Bank Pictures, return for an extended second series of 10 episodes.QE SAFEGUARDED 3M AMERICAN JOBS, SAYS FEDERAL RESERVE CHIEF BEN BERNANKEThe Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing programme may have safeguarded 3m jobs in the US, Ben Bernanke told Congress, as he also sought to dismiss concerns about the threat of inflation. The central bank’s chairman said that recent work research at the Fed suggested that the two rounds of QE have provided real support to the country’s jobs market.THE WALL STREET JOURNALHEDGE FUNDS HURT BY BETS AGAINST EUROThe euro’s gyrations this year have taken hedge funds by surprise, saddling some of the biggest names in the currency markets with losses. FX Concepts, an $8 billion currency-focused hedge fund in New York, struggled with losses as Europe’s shared currency unexpectedly surged last month. OIL-DRILLING BOOM UNDER WAYOil-drilling activity in the U.S. has accelerated to a pace not seen in a generation as energy companies, oilfield contractors and landowners rush to exploit newly profitable sources of crude. The number of rigs aiming for oil in the U.S. is the highest since at least 1987, according to Baker Hughes Inc. The 818 rigs tallied last week are nearly double last year’s count. center_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The right-handed opener notched up a match-winning, unbeaten century in India’s opening game against South Africa, and followed it with four more three-digit scores, including back to back ones against England, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Rohit’s five centuries are now the most ever by a batsman in a single World Cup, beating Kumar Sangakkara’s tally of four, which he made in successive games in 2015.In the absence of his regular opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, who was ruled out due to thumb injury, Rohit led the Indian batting with 648 runs in nine innings – the highest in the tournament – and threatened to break Sachin Tendulkar’s all-time World Cup record of 673 runs, which he achieved in the 2003 edition.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Jason Roy (England)The England opener had a decisive impact on his team’s result in a manner unlike anyone else in the tournament. Roy instilled a much-needed sense of energy in his team, after they lost back-to-back games to Sri Lanka and Australia, when Roy was sidelined due to hamstring injury. His impact was felt in England’s must-win games, against India and New Zealand in the round-robin, and against Australia in the semi-final, as he stitched together three successive century stands with his opening partner Jonny Bairstow. Having scored 443 runs from seven innings at an impressive strike-rate of 115.36, Roy forms a formidable opening partnership with Rohit Sharma in this XI. Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Kane Williamson (New Zealand – Capt)The bedrock of New Zealand’s batting right through the tournament, Williamson was an immovable object at the crease and an astute captain, who impressed with his tactical nous. The New Zealand captain completes the formidable top order in this XI, with his solidity and reliability, and also leads the team of the tournament. Williamson scored 578 runs at an impressive average of 82.57 and emerged as the Player of the Tournament. His ability to extract the best from his players and leading from the front makes him the perfect man to lead the World Cup XI.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Joe Root (England)England’s run machine over the years, Joe Root was the glue that held their famed batting together through the tournament. The Yorkshire batsman finished as the fifth highest run-scorer of the tournament, with 556 runs from 11 innings. Root’s flawless technique and ability to keep the scoreboard moving by rotating the strike and finding the boundaries as and when required makes him a perfect No.4 in this line-up. Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh)Bangladesh’s torch-bearer in this World Cup, Shakib is an automatic entrant into the best XI. Arguably the most valuable player of the 2019 World Cup, Shakib excelled both with bat and ball as he became the first cricketer to ever achieve the double of 500 runs and 10 wickets in a single edition of the tournament. The top-ranked player in the MRF Tyres ICC All-rounder Rankings excelled as a No.3 batsman for Bangladesh, finishing with 606 runs at a staggering average of 86.57, but occupies the No.5 position in this side, given the quality of the top order. Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Ben Stokes (England)The England all-rounder set the tournament on fire with his breathtaking catch to dismiss Andile Phehlukwayo in the opener against South Africa, after a match-defining innings of 89 earlier in the day. Known for his grit and fighting spirit, Stokes stood tall during the tough times for England, scoring 82* and 89 after top-order failures against Sri Lanka and Australia. He was at it again in the final, standing between New Zealand and the trophy, and eventually put in a match-defining performance, first in regulation time, and then in the Super Over. Along with his skilful medium-pace bowling, Stokes brings great value to this team, as a second all-rounder, alongside Shakib. Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Alex Carey (WK – Australia) The 2019 World Cup featured some of the finest wicket-keeper batsmen of this era in MS Dhoni and Jos Buttler, not to forget the promising Shai Hope and Mushfiqur Rahim. Yet, it was Alex Carey, playing for the first time in the tournament, who grabbed eyeballs with his consistent performances. With his team down at 92/5 against Trans Tasman rivals New Zealand, Carey backed his instincts, scoring a steady 72-ball 71 – an innings of immense skills and staggering fortitude. He showed his fighting spirit in the semi-final clash against England as well, when he made a 70-ball 46 after being hit by a Jofra Archer bouncer that cut open his jaw early in his innings. Carey finished the tournament with 375 runs from nine innings.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Mitchell Starc (Australia)Player of the Tournament in the previous edition, Mitchell Starc brought fierce pace and immaculate discipline to once again be his team’s most lethal weapon with the ball. Starc finished with 27 wickets from 10 matches – an all-time World Cup record, surpassing Glenn McGrath’s tally of 26 wickets in the 2007 edition. The tall-left arm pacer produced match-defining spells on a consistent basis and proved to be effective in every phase of the game.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Jofra Archer (England)The Barbados-born pacer had an instant impact on the hosts’ bowling line-up, with his aggressive brand of new-ball bowling. A smooth and rhythmic run-up, natural pace, and immaculate discipline were the most striking characteristics of Archer’s bowling. Sharing the new ball with the experienced Chris Woakes and shouldering the responsibility of bowling tough overs at the death, Archer excelled on both fronts, finishing as the joint-third highest wicket-taker, with 20 scalps to his name.Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Lockie Ferguson (New Zealand)While New Zealand’s new-ball combination of Trent Boult and Matt Henry launched salvos, Lockie Ferguson stood apart as their strike bowler. With his raw pace and hard-hitting lengths, Ferguson troubled some of the top batsman in the World Cup, such as Faf du Plessis, David Warner and Steve Smith and finished with 21 wickets – the second highest in the tournament – from nine matches. Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Jasprit Bumrah (India)Hailed by former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum as “the best all-format bowler” in world cricket, Bumrah personified precision, hitting consistent lines and lengths with the efficiency of a metronome. The top-ranked bowler in MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings, Bumrah controlled one end, which often resulted in his partners reaping dividends at the other end. Bumrah picked up 18 wickets in the tournament and became the second-fastest Indian bowler to complete 100 wickets in ODIs. Video Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.12th man: Trent Boult (New Zealand)Boult was impressive as ever with his pace and accuracy, especially with the trademark in-swinging yorker. He was responsible for one of two hat-tricks in this year’s tournament, snaring it at the hallowed turf at Lord’s, against Australia, and took 17 scalps in all to finish second on New Zealand’s wicket charts. However, despite his spectacular performances through the tournament, New Zealand’s pace spearhead finds himself as the 12th man in this world-beating team.Also Read: ICC World Cup 2019: Top 5 scoring inningsICC World Cup 2019: Top 5 most runs scorer Cricket Formula 1 Football LIVE Cricket Score IND vs NZ WTC Final: India VS New Zealand Live score, ball by ball coverage, Virat Kohli starts Day 3: Follow… IND vs NZ Live Streaming for free with Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea, Check out the best Recharge Plan Previous articleSindhu, Srikanth begin quest for title at Indonesia OpenNext articleKohli, Bumrah retain lead in ICC ODI rankings Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

This heterogeneous context called for an approach bringing greater cohesion, as proposed by Anne-Mie Depuydt and Marcel Smets, the urban planners in charge of the Île de Nantes. Thus, the new buildings enclose the public space by creating fronts.Save this picture!© Julien LanooDespite the fact this lot is entirely privately owned, all the outdoor spaces are open to the city.  The district having become an entirely pedestrian zone is traversed by a central avenue; the backbone of the island, it leads to the core area of the project : a broad plaza in front of the tower, now renamed the “360° View”, will become a public plaza ceded to the city.Save this picture!© Cyrille WeinerThe “360° View” TowerThe 360° View Tower represents the end and the beginning of the Brossette block.

This house, located in a gated community in the municipality of Xangri-Lá, on the south of Brazil, makes use of its privileged position (a corner lot on the border of a lake) to explore the visuals and the relations between private and social areas. The briefing is standard for a beach house: generous social area to entertain family and friends and an intimate area for resting. The living spaces on the ground floor areas as open as possible. On the second floor are the bedrooms and all private areas – a spa and the tv room. On the ground floor, the social spaces are articulated by smaller volumes that hold the complementary spaces (kitchen, toilet, warehouse, and service).Save this picture!© Cristiano BauceRecommended ProductsMetallicsTrimoMetal Panels for Roofs – Trimoterm SNVMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaSave this picture!Groun Floor PlanSave this picture!© Cristiano BauceThe covered living areas on the ground floor are delimited by the access door (5m wide) and two other window frames (9m wide each), configured in ‘L’ shape. When these windows are opened, a continuous social space is created from the front of the back of the lot, where the pool and open space are located. At the entrance hall, a suspended cabinet holds the TV and fireplace. The selection of furniture mixes modern and contemporary pieces by Brazilian architects and designers. Save this picture!© Cristiano BauceWith the total opening of the windows, the internal and external environments merge, further expanding the possibilities of using the social spaces. The composition of the woodwork and other natural materials creates a comfortable ambiance throughout the house. Since the lot it’s located on a corner, with a considerable flow of people, the internal views are protected by vegetation, which also serves as a block for the winds coming from the northeast, very common in the region. On the second floor are located the four suites, spa, massage room, and a family tv room. In contrast to the open composition of the ground floor, the second floor is characterized by a unique volume, with a more tectonic and private aspect.Save this picture!© Cristiano BauceSave this picture!First Floor PlanFor this, a shading finishing module in GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) was designed by the Arquitetura Nacional team. This element creates a filter between the exterior and interior of the house. The facade of the second floor consists of 390 modules in GRC (with 80x80cm), with white cement and fiberglass in their composition. Its shape was designed in order to direct the daylight to the interior of the house, creating diffuse and soft lighting, and at the same time providing privacy to the intimate areas. In the bedrooms and in the spa, the GRC modules are pivoting, allowing greater openness to the visuals outside. The sobriety of the palette of materials used in the woodwork and the furniture on the second floor seeks to enhance the external GRC wrapping and the effects created by light throughout the day in the spaces.Save this picture!© Cristiano BauceProject gallerySee allShow lessExofood Retail and Lab / space+craftSelected ProjectsWalk the Curve Installation / Ayelen Peressini + Inês TelesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Projectslast_img read more

  • Slain newspaper editor “knew he was in danger”

    first_img RSF_en Follow the news on Turkey April 28, 2021 Find out more News News Ismail Cihan Hayirsevener, a leading local newspaper and TV journalist who was gunned down on 18 December in the northwestern city of Bandirma, knew his life was in danger, Reporters Without Borders has been told by colleagues and friends.The editor of the newspaper Güney Maramara Yasam (Life on the South of Marmara) and news editor at Marmara TV, a local station, Hayirsevener was shot three times by an unidentified gunman as he walked down a Bandirma street.Marmara TV managing editor Ümit Babacan said both he and Hayirsevener had received threats in the form of letters and articles in the local newspapers and had been given police protection.Ekrem Balibek, the owner of the newspaper Yeni Haber, said he was convinced that Hayirsevener was killed because of his work and because of the views he had expressed. “All 69 of the journalists murdered in the course of the Turkish media’s history were killed because of their views and what they wrote,” he said.The leading national daily Hürriyet said Hayirsevener often covered local corruption stories. His colleagues said he had been threatened on several occasions, especially since starting to cover corruption allegations involving the Bandirma municipal authorities and the owners of three local newspapers, who have been jailed.One of these newspaper editors is Ihsan Kuruoglu, who has been arrested along with his son and his brother in connection with alleged kickbacks in the award of local contracts. Hayirsevener had been investigating the origin of these kickbacks immediately prior to his death.“Hayirsevener’s murder serves as reminder that, every day, hundreds of reporters come under intense pressure from local businessmen, officials, prosecutors and policemen in the course of trying to do their duty to report the news,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Mistrust of the press and the frequency of prosecutions and convictions, often with severe sentences, mean that journalists are easy targets.” A ceremony was organised in Bandirma on 20 December to pay tribute to Hayirsevener, whose body was taken to Istanbul for burial.Ramazan Demir, the president of the Balikesir Province Journalists Association, urged journalists not be intimidated and to “take their pens as Cihan did and use them against the gangsters, the enemies of democracy and those who are ruining the nation.”Balibek, Yeni Haber’s owner, said he had known Hayirsevener since 2000 and described his personality as combative. “He was a man of opinion,” he said. “I hope that we, the journalists and inhabitants of Bandirma, will realise his importance for all of us. His death is not just a loss for Bandirma and Balikesir but for all of Turkey.” According to an unconfirmed report on the local website yesterday, the police have arrested three men on suspicion of involvement in Hayirsevener’s murder and have seized what they believe is the murder weapon. Ballistic tests are currently being carried out on the gun.Aged 53, Hayirsevener was shot three times in the legs at around 3 p.m. on 18 December as he was walking down Bandirma’s Atatürk Boulevard by a gunman who immediately left in car. One of the shots ruptured an artery in his left leg, causing him to lose a lot of blood. He died while being taken to Bursa hospital. Before losing consciousness, he reportedly said: “I know who shot me.”A graduate of the Istanbul Academy of Economic Sciences, Hayirsevener had been a journalist for 30 years. He began in 1980, working for the daily Dünya (The World). He then worked for Hürriyet (Freedom) and the regional daily Karadeniz before moving to Bandirma in 1999 and launching Güney Marmara Yasam. to go further TurkeyEurope – Central Asia April 2, 2021 Find out more Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism lawcenter_img Receive email alerts TurkeyEurope – Central Asia April 2, 2021 Find out more News December 24, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Slain newspaper editor “knew he was in danger” Organisation Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor News Help by sharing this information last_img read more

In a case registered suo moto to meet the eventualities occurred as a consequence to lockdown due to the threat of Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19), the bench comprising of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Siddhartha Varma said, “As per provisions of Section 29A of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 the award in the mater other than international commercial arbitration is required to be made within a period of twelve months from the date of completion of pleadings under sub-section (4) of Section 23. The requirement of Section 29A of the Act is mandatory by nature. However, looking to the extraordinary circumstances, it is desirable to extend the period aforesaid. Accordingly, it is directed that if in any arbitral proceedings the pleadings under sub-section (4) of Section 23 of the Act have been completed and the period of twelve months has expired or is going to be expired on or after 25th March, 2020 then the same stands extended upto 25th May, 2020.” The High Court also noted that many bail orders had not been executed due to non-availability of sureties. Thus considering the “impediments” in arranging sureties because of lockdown, the bench temporarily waived of production of sureties by persons who were granted bail on or after March 15 and directed that they be released on furnishing of personal bonds. It ordered, “Looking to impediments in arranging sureties because of lockdown, while invoking powers under Article 226 and 227 of the Constitution of India, we deem it appropriate to order that all the accused-applicants -2- whose bail applications came to be allowed on or after 15th March, 2020 but have not been released due to non-availability of sureties as a consequence to lockdown may be released on executing personal bond as ordered by the Court or to the satisfaction of the jail authorities where such accused is imprisoned, provided the accused-applicants undertakes to furnish required sureties within a period of one month from the date of his/her actual release.” Click Here To Download Order Read Order Next Storylast_img read more
