first_img Share whatsapp KCS-content LSE has not had an easy time so far this year, after it was shuffled out of the FTSE 100 in June. Following the worst of the financial crisis, 2010 has seen nervous investors shuttle into bonds and out of equities, partly explaining why the company’s revenues saw barely any change.Its results yesterday benefited from a one-off gain of £5.6m after renegotiating VAT calculations with the Treasury, but they were otherwise right on consensus, with operating profit of £155m. Still, despite growing fragmentation in the marketplace, LSE is well-placed to compete in Europe.It maintains a dominant market share in the UK and with its move into high-frequency trading (albeit slightly marred by suspected sabotage), it has proved that, with some prodding, it is ready to move with the times.

The house shaped as s C around the patio facing north to protect the large windows from the hot Apulian sun and enjoy the best view. To the east are the living area and the studio of the owner, in the center the dining area with kitchen and to the west the master bedroom with a second studio for his wife. At the west end is a guest room with separated entrance and services. North of the House, in front of the patio, the swimming pool, with gazebo, services and sauna, overlooks the countryside.Save this picture!© Alessandra BelloThe finishing materials are the traditional ones of Puglia made contemporary by the architectural detail: dry stone and lime plaster for the walls, minimal window frames in oak wood, Apricena stone in slabs for paving.

Robert Carr Chapel to be more accessible in time for summer weddings

first_imgFacebook printTCU’s Robert Carr Chapel is hidden behind screened fencing while construction crews make it more easily accessible to those with disabilities.The chapel should be ready by this summer to host the nuptials of 25 couples planning to tie the knot between June and August. “When people first heard of the closure, we received mixed responses,” said Kayli Burnett, Carr Chapel coordinator. “Some people were excited for what is to come, while others were nostalgic for what is being altered.”Workers are installing ramps on both sides of the chapel so that people do not have to use the ramps at the entrance of Beasley Hall to access the chapel. Two restrooms are being equipped so that they are accessible for people with disabilities.There will also be a lift so that people in wheelchairs can get on and off the stage. The tile floor is being replaced with wood. The chapel will not be destroyed or ruined in the construction process, Harold Leeman said. Leeman serves as the associate director for planning, designing, and construction for the Carr Chapel.The chapel, built in 1954, is named for Robert Carr, a San Angelo rancher and oil man who funded the original construction. Carr Chapel is a popular wedding destination. It has a 4.6 star ranking on weddingwire.com. Burnett said while there is a common misconception about a waiting list for he venue, she confirms that is not the case and that it is “a mistaken belief.” Women and gender studies event gets students talking ReddIt Linkedin Sara Colberthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sara-colbert/ Sara Colbert Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Robert Carr Chapel is under construction.

Photo: Cian Reinhardt“A GROTESQUE and intrusive monument to British Imperialism,” is how a city councillor described plans to erect a memorial to the Limerick soldiers and civilians who died in World War 1.John Gilligan (Ind) accused the Limerick Civic Trust of “giving the two fingers” to the local authority and turning the People’s Park into a “cemetery” after they appealed the council’s refusal to give planning permission for the monument.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Civic Trust succeeded in having the council decision overturned by An Bord Pleanala but, in an impassioned speech at a this month’s full council meeting, Cllr Gilligan pointed out that “the council own the park – not the Civic Trust.”The application was made in the name of the seventh Earl of Limerick Edmund Pery and involved the erection of a cross and eight stone slabs, inscribed with the names of the dead.The angry city north councillor was urging the council to refuse to hand over no 2 Pery Square to the Trust until they explained their “insult to this council”.“They are bowing down to British Imperialism and the landed gentry. They have disgraced those who made us a proud nation. Out of respect for all those who won our freedom, we must not hand it back to the British monarchy.“They (Limerick Civic Trust) don’t answer to us as a council – they answer to Lord Limerick.“I have no problem with a war memorial per se but these poor men were cannon fodder for Queen and Kaiser and now they want us to doff the cap to the landed gentry”.The council were discussing a proposal to give the Civic Trust a lengthy lease on No 2 Pery Square, Culture House,  for a nominal rent which would effectively give the Trust full control of the building.Cmhlr Séighin O Ceallaigh (SF) said that the council members were not being asked about the war memorial.“We are being asked to vote on whether or not to dispose of Culture House and my view is that this should be sent back to the cultural committee. The Civic Trust should come in and give a detailed presentation and be there to answer questions”.The proposal to lease the building to the Civic Trust was passed by 21 votes to nine with three abstentions.

Investor Update: COVID-19’s Near-Term Rental Impact

first_img Tagged with: Investment Renters Nearly 16.5 million renter households have at least one worker in an industry likely to be immediately affected by efforts to flatten the curve in the COVID-19 pandemic, according to research from the Terner Center for Housing Innovation, UC Berkeley. According to researchers, this means nearly 50 million people live in a renter household likely experiencing immediate job or income losses. Children (27%) and young adults (16%) make up a disproportionate share of this vulnerable population, and nearly half (46%) are prime-age workers.Among likely-impacted renter households, more than 7.1 million were already experiencing housing cost burdens and are likely to be especially vulnerable. Roughly 43 percent (or 7.1 million) of likely-impacted renter households were already struggling with rental cost burdens before the COVID-19 crisis took hold. That share stretches even higher in the District of Columbia (54%), Florida (51%), California (50%), and other high-cost, hard-hit areas like Connecticut (48%), New Jersey (47%), and New York (46%).Thirty percent of the nation’s likely-impacted renter households are in California (2.3 million), Texas (1.4 million), New York (1.1 million), and Florida (994,200).However, researchers note that every state has its share of renter households with workers in immediately-impacted industries. In Nevada, where workers in renter households are disproportionately likely to have jobs in food service, entertainment, and tourism, nearly half of renter households (48%) are likely facing job or income losses . In Indiana and Michigan, workers in renter households not only skew towards those service industries but also toward non-essential manufacturing, making more than 40% of their renter households vulnerable to COVID-related economic impacts (44% and 42%, respectively).”Households that were already struggling with rent burdens are likely to be particularly vulnerable to housing instability, and may become more so as benefits lag and much of the country continues to stay home,” Terner Center researchers add. “Federal assistance that can help keep these renters housed is critical, both for weathering the near-term crisis and to speed the path to an economic recovery that is broadly shared.” Investor Update: COVID-19’s Near-Term Rental Impact Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Therefore, action should be taken against those who are refusing to permit the families to intern the bodies”, it was urged before the Chief Justice-led bench. Abid Rasool Khan, Former Chairman, State Minorities Commission, had on May 28 addressed a letter to the Court pointing out how a fifty years old person named Sri Mohd. Khaja died in Hyderabad, and the family members approached the Managing Committees of five graveyards in the vicinity, seeking a place to bury the deceased, but the burial was not permitted. “The Managing Committees of the Wakf are under the control of Telangana Wakf Board and they manage the burial grounds and are vested with huge extents of lands and are being used for the welfare of the minorities including the burial grounds; by collecting huge amounts for burying the dead and misusing the amounts so collected”, he averred. It was prayed that the court issue necessary orders or directions to the respondent-state authorities “for suspension of powers of the Managing Committees of the Wakfs during the COVID-l9 pandemic and entrust the Management of the same to the Revenue Officials, for allotting places in the burial grounds for burying dead muslims and further direct the Police Department to take stern action against those who refuse to allow burial ofdead muslim persons in the said Burial Grounds”. The Supreme Court on June 11, 2020 took suo motu cognizance of former Union Law Minister and Senior Advocate Ashwani Kumar’s letter highlighting news reports about the undignified treatment and disposal of the bodies of COVID-19 patients. A three-Judges Bench led by Justice Ashok Bhushan has been assigned by the Chief Justice S. A. Bobde to examine the issue. Mr. Kumar wrote that indignity shown to the dead amounts to a “grave infraction of the citizen’s right to die with dignity”. In Re the Proper Treatment of COVID-19 Patients and Dignified Handling of Dead Bodies in the Hospitals etc.,Suo Motu Writ Petition (Civil) No(s). 7/2020 was scheduled to be heard on 12th June, 2020 and the presiding corum included Hon’ble Mr. Justice Ashok Bhushan, Hon’ble Mr. Justice S K Kaul and Hon’ble Mr. Justice M.R. Shah. In Paragraph 1 of the said order, the bench assessed the media reports and programmes aired in several channels as evidences where patients were in the wards and the dead bodies were also in the same wards. Dead bodies were also seen in the lobby and waiting area. The patients were not supplied with any oxygen support or any other support; no saline drips were shown with the beds and there was no one to attend the patients. The bench held that: “the Guidelines on Dead Body Management issued by the Government of India, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Directorate General of Health Services on 15.03.2020 which are in the nature of directives, we notice that there is no proper adherence to the guidelines nor the hospitals are giving due care and concern to the dead bodies. The patients’ relatives are not even informed for several days of the death of the patient as has been reported in the media. It is also brought to our notice that the details of cremation as to when the dead body will be cremated are not even informed to their close relatives. Due to which the families of the patients are not even able to see the dead bodies or attend their last funeral rites. We, thus, issue notice to the Union of India, NCT of Delhi, States of Maharashtra, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat as well as to the LNJP Hospital in Delhi. We shall also consider issuing notice to other states, Government and Private hospitals subsequently. Mr. Tushar Mehta, learned Solicitor General accepts notice on behalf of the Union of India and Mr. Sanjay Jain, learned ASG accepts notice on behalf of the NCT of Delhi. Let notice be served to other States through the standing counsel of the States as well as through the Chief Secretaries of the State Governments. LNJP hospital, Delhi be also noticed through its Director. We direct that the Chief Secretaries of the States shall immediately take appropriate notice of the status of patients’ management in the Government hospital in their respective States and take remedial action. Status report with regard to Government hospitals, patient care and the details of the staff, infrastructure, etc. should be brought before the Court so that appropriate directions be issued by the Court as found necessary on the next date of hearing”.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
