The company added trading in the first few weeks of the new financial year was so far “satisfactory”.But Britvic’s net debt rose 23 per cent to £451m in the year. Britain’s second biggest soft drinks maker said it had cut the carrying value of Britvic Ireland’s intangible assets and properties by £104m to reflect poor trading. It also made an £11.4m write down on the value of three non-core British brands – Ame, Aqua Libra and GB Red Devil. On top of that it was forced to raise input cost inflation guidance one per cent to a range of five to six per cent, reflecting increased juice and sugar prices.“Ireland has felt the economic downturn more acutely than other markets. We continue to focus our efforts on re-shaping the [Irish] organisation,” Britvic’s chief executive Paul Moody said, adding he remained committed to the business.“We are in good shape to deliver another robust set of results for the year ahead,” he added despite admitting that he expected the consumer environment to remain challenging.Shares in Britvic closed down 2.9 per cent to 476p yesterday.

(Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images) Jamie Roberts tackles Tim Visser during last week’s Heineken cup clashVersatile duo Mike Blair and Greig Laidlaw will steer the Edinburgh Rugby back-line against Cardiff Blues in round four of the Heineken Cup at Murrayfield Stadium tomorrow (kick-off 8pm).Two wins from three in Heineken Cup Pool 2 means Edinburgh Rugby are just three points behind this weekend’s opponents, who leapfrogged Edinburgh into the Pool’s top spot in the reverse fixture last Friday (25-8).Now, with home advantage, the capital club have the chance to redress the Pool positions, with a win capable of restoring Edinburgh to the top spot with two matches remaining – Racing Metro away followed by London Irish at Murrayfield.The selection of Blair and Laidlaw is the only change in the Edinburgh Rugby back-line, while two personnel changes have been made in the pack – Grant Gilchrist and Netani Talei coming in for Esteban Lozada and Stuart McInally in the second and back-row.Talei’s introduction means there’s no room for McInally in the match-day 23, with Ross Rennie retaining the back-row replacement berth, while Lozada takes Steven Turnbull’s place on the bench. Talei, who started and scored in the club’s last home Heineken Cup match against Racing Metro, said: “Everyone’s looking forward to this game, the boys are confident and have been focussed on this match since we left Cardiff on Saturday. It’s a big, big game for us.“Cardiff have the ability to slot points from pretty much anywhere within 50 metres so we can’t afford to give away cheap penalties. We have to tackle the basics first at the ruck and the tackle area – that’s what Cardiff are very good at. If we put our focus there first and give our backs the go forward we’re capable of scoring tries from anywhere around the park.”Other notable inclusions see centre Matt Scott return from a hip injury sustained in the side’s 48-47 win over Racing Metro, while the experienced Phil Godman provides the half-back replacement option for Laidlaw and Blair from the bench.last_img read more

As an Episcopal priest (Minnesota) who has served in the Church of England for the past 34 years, it was heartwarming to hear what the Episcopal Church is doing in Paris. God bless you. Continue in His good work and ministry. Comments (11) Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL April 9, 2014 at 9:47 pm What a magnificent ministry! Our American Cathedral in Paris radiates the heart and mind of Christ throughout Europe and across the ocean. Experiencing this beautiful video and hearing Dean Laird speak so authentically about Cathedral Life, I feel my heart growing wider, and also a deep sense of Place on Earth, a true home for all people~ a luminous embodiment of Bienvenue! April 14, 2014 at 6:40 am What a magnificent video. I am so blessed to be a volunteer at the Friday Mission Lunch. I feel so warm and welcome every time I go to the Cathedral. Margaret Bond says: April 12, 2014 at 7:07 am Thanks, Margaret. St. Matthew’s, Louisville, formed and strengthened me for 15 years, and I will always be grateful for the ministry we shared. April 12, 2014 at 7:05 am Thank you, Stuart! Come visit! Michael Martel says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC April 11, 2014 at 6:42 pm What a wonderful piece. So happy to have been among Lucinda’s flock at St. Matthew’s. A woman of great faith and intelligence. Rector Hopkinsville, KY Video: The American Cathedral in Paris: A place of transformation April 9, 2014 at 8:09 pm I celebrate the outreach programs at the Cathedral. The new Dean is an impressive leader. We can be very proud of this American presence in Paris. The video is wonderful! This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 This article and video is the last in a four-part series on the ministry of cathedrals, featuring interviews with their deans. The first article, “Video: Inside St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, with Dean David Ison” is available here; the second, “Education always a part of Ashton Brooks’ vocation,” is available here; the third, “Los Angeles cathedral(s): ‘One ministry in two places,’” is available here. In 2013, ENS also published a series on cathedral deans, available here.[Episcopal News Service] The American Cathedral in Paris, officially the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, was built in the 1880s to serve an expanding community of ex-pats and English-speakers abroad. It has since grown in its diversity and outwards in its ministry to the local community.The Very Rev. Lucinda Laird, who has just completed her first year as dean and rector, speaks with ENS about the American Cathedral being a place of transformation and its commitment to social outreach and serving those on the fringes of Parisian society and beyond.Located at 23 Avenue George V, the American Cathedral is a pro-cathedral, meaning it remains a parish church. It is the seat of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, presided over by Bishop Pierre Whalon.Today, the cathedral congregation is composed of about 400 permanent parishioners and includes Americans, Britons and French as well as many other Europeans, Asians, Africans and Latin Americans.Laird says: “If you’re an Episcopalian, the American Cathedral in Paris is your cathedral in Europe.”Laird previously served as rector of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and as rector at St. Mark’s Church in Teaneck, New Jersey. Before that she was an assistant for college ministries at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City and curate of the parish of Christ the Redeemer in Pelham, New York.A native of New Orleans, Laird is a graduate of Barnard College and the General Theological Seminary. She also studied acting at Temple University.Within the Episcopal Church she has served on the faculty of the Preaching Excellence Program (Episcopal Preaching Foundation); as a member of the Standing Commission on Ecumenical Relations; on the Advisory Board of the Church Pension Fund; on the Board of Trustees of the General Theological Seminary; and has been president of Associate Alumni/ae of the General Seminary.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service. April 14, 2014 at 7:50 am What a lovely video, Matthew. Thank you for it, and thank God for Lucinda, for the openness of the Episcopal Church, and for the incarnational response of this parish to Matthew 25. April 9, 2014 at 4:28 pm A moving witness to the ever-reaching and loving heart of Jesus Christ in a very special place in Christendom and the Anglican Communion. Dean Lucinda Laird is clearly the right person at the right time for the Cathedral Church in Paris. Keep up the great and good work, Dean Lucinda ! The Revd Robert A.

When I went to school in Paris in the 70’s, I attended, but beyond weekly services and some kaffee klatches, there was limited outreach beyond the parishioners. The programs you described have brought the church to a whole new level of involvement and caring; which I applaud.

A S$50 million investment spanning 40,000 sq ft across three distinct yet conjoined blocks in Bencoolen Street, Space Asia Hub is the latest addition to the design landscape of Singapore. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallRecommended ProductsStonesNeolithSintered Stone – Arctic White – Colorfeel CollectionWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedCeramicsApavisaTiles – JewelsThe first building on the Space plaza is an immaculate white bungalow, The Villa, which promises an experience for all senses – sight, sound by B&O systems, specially commissioned scent and food experiences. Poliform displays wardrobe systems, whilst Varenna by Poliform shows off live kitchen sets where Space will host a series of sit-down dinners for clients. On the top floor, Giorgetti expresses its artistic flair with plush sofas, bedding and sculptures, all portrayed as poetry in prologue, with item prices discreetly housed in wooden boxes made of pau ferro and American walnut. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallThe contemporary Glass Block building stands at the centre of the multiplex and its windows are a riot of colours led by the eye-catching chairs in candy shades by Kartell on the ground, to the outdoor collection by Moooi and B&B Italia on the landscaped balcony on the 4th level. The Glass Block is especially attractive at night with moooi’s suspended Raimond lights designed by Raimond Puts. Other collections housed here include Acerbis, Cassina, Flos, Flexform, Fritz Hansen, Louis Poulsen, Moooi, Vitra and more. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallThis archi-trio is completed by the Heritage House, a conservation shophouse with industrial-inspired interiors. There are two interesting lofts on the second floor, an area with natural skylight streaming in through wooden rafters. These retail elegant sofas and bedding sets by Flexform Mood and Maxalto. The most noteworthy area in Heritage House is B&B Italia/Maxalto’s Courtyard featuring an indoor three-storey high vertical landscaped wall. This space, at 7,000 sq ft, is the designer’s biggest international flagship showroom. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallBackground of Complex This project for Space Furniture’s new Asia hub for furniture design is located along Bencoolen Street in the midst of the Arts and Entertainment District. Housed within a unique cluster of heritage buildings within a gazetted conservation area, it comprises two conserved buildings – a villa and a shophouse, flanking an infill unit. Through adaptive reuse and calibrated architectural intervention, this redevelopment proposal strives to create a contemporary retail showroom with expanded lifestyle facilities that retain the old-world charm of its heritage stature. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallDesign Concept The design strategy aims to play up contrasts between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’. In the two conserved buildings, new free spanning roofs are rebuilt in timber, to reveal high volume, column-free showroom interiors true to their original form and architecture. Parts of the existing party wall are also taken down and new staircases introduced to open up, connect and mediate the different levels across the 3 developments as an integrated showroom. The improved visual porosity across the units reveal new volumes of varying scales and enhances the overall appreciation of the spatial richness inherent in the built forms. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallThe areas carved out of the conservation buildings are redistributed to create a 4th storey addition to the infill unit and an extension to the rear of the conserved villa. A new fully glazed ‘skin’, replacing the former solid façade, wraps around the infill unit and extends to the rear of the conserved villa. The new transparency of the curtain wall unveils new views that enhance the appreciation of the conserved buildings while injecting the development with a contemporary façade that reveal its interior activities. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallThe three units are given distinct interior expressions in response to their existing architecture. Restored dark timber floors, carefully exposed brickwork and 2 free-spanning attics held up by exposed steel trusses lend a warehouse expression to the conserved 3- storey shophouse. The 2-storey conserved bungalow, the most intricate and ornate of the group, is conceived as an immaculate historic villa with white-stained timber floors, windows and ceilings in an all-white pristine interior. The large volumes and intricate timber works often associated with these villas are made evident on the upper floor. Contrasting against these heritage interiors is the contemporary infill unit, in which the existing low ceiling heights inspired an industrial expression with open ceilings, exposed ductwork and services, impeccably planned and laid out as a deliberate design gesture. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallUrban Plaza At the street level, an urban plaza lends itself as a vibrant urban node and forecourt that aims to draws attention to the restored buildings. The plaza is a woven tapestry of terracotta and pebblewash strips in varying hues reminiscent of traditional materials and regional ‘sarong’ textiles, giving the development a contemporary yet distinctive character that references its Asian location. These finishes flow into the interior of the glass curtain-walled infill unit, giving a perception of a large, continuous and inviting urban space that integrates the 3 distinct buildings, and provide generous spaces for events and activities. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallLandscaping of Complex Integrated landscape aims to enhance the appreciation of greenery from both inside and outside the development. Pockets of greenery are extended into the plaza and around the conserved bungalow with variegated planting edges that blur the boundary between the soft and hardscape. A courtyard with vertical greenery is a feature of the conserved shophouse. Two landscaped roof terraces crown the infill units at the front and rear, stepping back as a response to the controlled envelope and introducing visible rooftop activities that further animate this unique cluster of heritage buildings.Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallProject gallerySee allShow lessProject locationAddress:77 Bencoolen Street, SingaporeLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Ginko eco-neighbourhood is located in northern Bordeaux, on the left bank of the Garonne River. Architects Nicolas Laisné and Christophe Rousselle have been commissioned to develop the Saint-Exupéry lot. The project includes the construction of four apartment buildings and seven single-family homes. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThree of the apartment buildings are situated along the cours de Quebec and the tram line. Their ground floors are connected, creating a continuous presence along the road. The buildings feature a wide variety of panelling, spread across the first floor terraces and the other levels. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe single-family homes are located on the west side of the lot, along the greenway. They hide an above-ground parking structure. The fourth apartment building, which faces avenue Reinson, echoes the materials and façades used for the single-family homes. At the heart of the Saint-Exupéry lot lies an in-ground garden, which opens onto public areas. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe façades of the apartment buildings are angled in order to offer optimal lake views from the living rooms. A smaller-scale version of the same system is used on the façades of the single-family homes which face the garden terraces so residents can enjoy both the greenway and the garden in the centre of the lot.

The three journalists were freed on bail after being held for 24 hours.“Zimbabwean journalists continue to be the victims of police brutality and judicial abuses,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By arresting journalists arbitrarily and then conditioning their release on the payment of bail, the police and courts are subjecting the media to a systematic extortion racket. We again appeal to the authorities to stop these practices.”In a report issued for World Press Freedom Day on 3 May, Reporters Without Borders said: “The year 2009 has given rise to new hopes for press freedom in Zimbabwe. After several years of brutal repression orchestrated by Robert Mugabe, the new government of national unity, led by former political opponent Morgan Tsvangirai, has the opportunity, if the head of state allows him the time and the means, to finally allow the media to grow again from the ashes.”The report added: ”The urgent task ahead is for an easing of laws and encouragement to the independent press, previously one of Africa’s most vigorous, to get back on its feet again.”Zimbabwe Independent director Mike Curling, editor Vincent Kahiya and news editor Constantine Chimakure were freed on 12 May after paying bail of 200 US dollars (146 euros). They had all been summoned the previous day to Harare central police station and arrested on a charge of publishing “falsehoods prejudicial to the state” under section 31a of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.The charges were prompted by an 8 May article that named the state security agents responsible for the abduction of some 30 opposition activists and journalists, including Jestina Mukoko, from October to December of last year.Police officers had initially gone to the newspaper’s office in an unsuccessful attempt to locate the journalists on 9 May, as a seminar was being held in Harare at the government’s request on the need to ease Zimbabwe’s draconian press laws.Meanwhile, a court yesterday ordered the release of freelance press photographer Shadreck Anderson Manyere, who had been re-arrested by police in Harare on 5 May. Manyere was previously held for four months before been freed on bail on 18 April.More information about Manyere News Organisation Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell Receive email alerts News November 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Paul Kamara, founder and editor of the privately-owned daily For Di People, was released on 11 March after serving four months of a six-month sentence for libelling a judge. The authorities granted him two months’ remission of sentence.Kamara announced at a press conference on leaving Freetown’s Pademba Road prison that he would go back to work as soon as possible. He challenged the legality of his arrest and called for the repeal of the laws under which he was convicted, which limit press freedom. He was the only journalist in prison in Sierra Leone.The Freetown high court originally sentenced Kamara on 12 November 2002 to nine months in prison and a fine of 4.5 million leones (2,100 euros), and banned the newspaper from appearing for six months. Three days later, this sentence was reduced to six months in prison and a fine of 4,500 leones (about 2 euros).The conviction was a result of the complaint brought on 5 April 2002 by appeal court judge Methland Tholla Thomson over several articles calling him a thief, a criminal and a constitutional swindler, and the publication of his photo with the caption: “This man is dangerous.”Kamara is one of Sierra Leone’s best known journalists. He has received several international awards for his work and he is a human rights activist. He has been jailed several times in recent years.

The Bill provides a legal framework to enable two counterparties in a bilateral financial contract to offset claims against each other to determine a single net payment obligation due from one counterparty to other in the event of default. “In the absence of a legal framework for bilateral netting, banks are forced to measure credit exposure to a counterparty for over the counter derivative contracts based on gross basis and not net basis. This situation significantly increases credit risk exposure and systemic risk in financial market in the event of default of a counterparty, besides trapping significant amount of capital unproductively by banks. An unambiguous legal framework for enforceability of close-out netting would reduce credit exposure of banks and other financial institutions,” MoS Finance, Anurag Thakur said. He informed the House that the estimated financial savings under the Bill will be around Rs. 46,000 crore yearly. He also assured the House that the Bill was drafted keeping in mind the model netting act of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association. Salient Features Bilateral netting Netting refers to determination of “net claim” after setting off all the claims/ obligations arising from mutual dealings between two parties to Qualified Financial Contracts (as notified by the relevant authorities which may be RBI, SEBI, IRDAI, etc.). Netting also includes Close-out netting (discussed later). The parties to a QFC must ensure that all obligations owed by one party to the other, under the contract, are replaced by a single net amount. Applicability The provisions of the Bill will apply to QFCs between two qualified financial market participants, where at least one party is an entity regulated by the specified authorities (RBI, SEBI, IRDAI, PFRDA or the IFSCA). Qualified financial market participant The relevant authority may, by notification, designate an entity regulated by it as a qualified financial market participant to deal in QFCs. This would include entities such as non-banking finance companies (NBFCs), insurance companies and pension funds. Enforceability of netting Netting of QFCs shall be enforced by a netting agreement, included in the contract between the parties. Inclusion of non-qualified financial contracts in a netting agreement will not invalidate the enforceability of netting of QFCs under the agreement. Close-out netting arrangement Close-out netting refers to the termination of all obligations arising out of relevant QFCs. The process may be initiated by a party to the QFC in the case of: failure to honour the obligations of a QFC by the other partytermination event, as specified in the netting agreement that gives one or both parties the right to terminate transactions under the agreement. The net amount payable/receivable under the close-out netting would be determined: in accordance with the netting agreement entered into by the parties, orthrough an agreement between the parties on the sum with regard to the net amount payable, or through arbitration. Enforceability of close-out netting Close-out netting is enforceable against: an insolvent partyagainst the person providing collaterala party placed under administration, notwithstanding any injunction, moratorium, insolvency, resolution, winding up or order of a court issued under any law. Limitations on powers of administration practitioner The administration practitioner cannot render ineffective, any transfer of cash, collateral or other interests made in connection with a netting agreement between the insolvent party and the non-insolvent party to a QFC.
