whatsapp Wednesday 22 September 2010 7:42 pm whatsapp KCS-content Yield on Portuguese bonds at record high Show Comments ▼ INVESTORS buying Portuguese debt demanded record high yields yesterday, forcing the Eurozone country to scale back the amount of money it wanted to borrow from the bond markets. Portugal’s debt agency raised €750m (£640m) in a government bond auction, falling shy of the €1bn it had initially hoped to raise.The Public Debt Agency sold €300m in 10-year bonds and €450m in four-year bonds to investors, who were only willing to take a punt on the highly-indebted economy in exchange for sky-high yields.Lisbon paid 6.24 per cent to holders of its 10-year bonds and 4.69 per cent to holders of the four year-bonds. In its last auction, Portugal paid 5.32 per cent on 10-year bonds and 3.62 per cent on four-year bonds.The yield on 10 year bonds – some four per cent higher than German bunds – soared to its highest in a decade and was equivalent to the amount Portugal would have to pay to borrow from the European Financial Stability Fund. It is thought that Portugal’s debt managers scaled back their ambitions because of the high yields demanded by investors.Investors are growing increasingly uncertain over Portugal’s ability to tackle its growing debt pile, as it struggles to slash its budget deficit from 9.4 per cent of GDP to 7.3 per cent. “As opposed to the situation in other highly indebted Eurozone economies, the latest figures show Portugal’s deficit widening. On top of this, economic activity is expected to decelerate during the second half of 2010, following a better than expected first semester,” said IHS Global Insight senior economist Diego Iscaro.Portugal is seen as one of the problem countries in the 16-member Eurozone. It is joined in the uneviable “PIGS” category by Ireland, Greece and Spain. The news came shortly after Ireland turned to the debt markets to raise €1.5bn.

KCS-content Wednesday 16 March 2011 9:54 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL OPERATORS of the quake-crippled nuclear plant in Japan said they would try again yesterday to use military helicopters to douse overheating reactors, as US officials warned of a rising risk of a catastrophic radiation leak from spent fuel rods.Japan had earlier called off helicopters attempting to pour water on its exposed nuclear reactors at Fukushima Daiichi yesterday, amid fresh concerns about radiation levels above the site.Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) tried to douse the plant, 220km from Tokyo, before sending in some of its 180 remaining ground crew to try and manage the unstable nuclear reactors. Reactors 1, 2 and 3 have nuclear rods exposed by one or two metres, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed yesterday, while the spent fuel pond below reactor 4 briefly caught fire. “The situation at Daiichi is very serious,” said IAEA director general Yukiya Amano, who plans to fly into Tokyo today on a fact-finding mission. But he added, “despite the hydrogen explosions, reactors vessels and containment vessels stayed in tact. As a result, the release of radioactivity was limited.”Fukushima residents between 20km and 30km from the plant have been told to remain indoors, but prefecture governor Yuhei Sato said there is a lack of information about the danger. “Anxiety and anger felt by people have reached boiling point,”?he said.Radiation levels have risen in Tokyo, Amano said, but not enough to pose a danger to human health.IAEA officials declined to comment on media reports based on Wikileaks documents that the international group has only revised its earthquake safety guidelines three times in the last 35 years, or on TEPCO’s handling of the disaster.Analysts said yesterday that damage and injury caused by radioactive contamination is “uninsurable” by the private market, leaving Japan’s residents without any guarantee of financial protection in a meltdown.BNP Paribas analyst Rafael Villareal said the cost of a nuclear disaster on people’s health and property would far exceed anything that private insurers or even an entire country’s insurers could provide. “When insurers say a risk is uninsurable, it means the government will end up picking up the tab,” he said. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Japan races to cool unstable nuclear plants More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com Share

FranzoiCity:Xangri-LáCountry:BrazilMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiText description provided by the architects. The initial idea for this project, on the Xangri-lá beach, was to give the air of a rural house located on the beach, using a considerable area of the land. In order to meet the owner’s expectations, who like an open house without losing privacy, all of the faces of the social area were designed as a part of the external area. In addition, natural light and cross ventilation were used with the aim of avoiding the use of air conditioning. Energy saving was also optimized with the use of LED technology in all ambients. The concrete walls, beyond creating an inequivalent brute and rustic appearance, offer advantages regarding the temperature and low maintenance.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe house has five large bed rooms – four located on the second floor, along with two bathrooms – and a suite on the ground floor, ensuring easy accessibility. In addition, the social area has a toilet. The fireplace was created facing both the living room and the dining room, in order to keep both areas heated in the winter. The kitchen joins the dining area, through a gourmet island. The dining table can be turned into a pool table or a ping-pong table – creating an atmosphere that is perfect for receiving family and friends, in addition to the large barbecue located in the external area. Thermal-acoustic tiles were used in covering the dining room and the terrace and were chosen not only for their main characteristics, but also due to the lightness and resistance they provide.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe land also has a large yard with abundant vegetation and a gas-heated fiberglass pool as well as parking for up to five cars.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiProject gallerySee allShow lessPeka Peka House II / Herriot Melhuish O’Neill ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPopulous and Egis to Develop Plans for 38 Olympic Venues at 2024 Paris GamesArchitecture News Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/875964/house-rio-das-contas-151-office-arquitetura Clipboard Brazil House Rio das Contas / 151 Office ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveHouse Rio das Contas / 151 Office Arquitetura Photographs: Marcelo Donadussi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/875964/house-rio-das-contas-151-office-arquitetura Clipboard CopyHouses•Xangri-Lá, Brazil Houses CopyAbout this office151 Office ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesXangri-láBrazilPublished on September 14, 2017Cite: “House Rio das Contas / 151 Office Arquitetura” [Casa Rio das Contas / 151 Office Arquitetura] 14 Sep 2017.

Mazgaon Metropolitan Magistrate Shital Bangad after watching the promotional video that was shown to her, observed that the film was going to be based entirely on the book The Mafia Queens of Mumbai. Speaking about how Gangubhai’s character was portrayed in the book and the film, the Magistrate remarked “Even if it is considered that, she was prostitute, that does not mean that anybody has permission or write to show or mention her as a prostitute in public.” The book, written by S Hussain Zaidi and Jane Borges devotes a chapter to the late Gangubai Kathiawadi, a social activist who advocated for the rights of sex workers. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bhansali Productions is presently making a feature film named Gangubai Kathiawadi, based on the novel. The proceedings commenced after one Babuji Shah who claimed to be Gangubhai Kathiawadi’s adopted son asserted that the chapter relating to Kathiawadi in the novel was defamatory, tarnished her reputation and infringed upon his deceased mother’s right to privacy and self-respect. In Court, Shah stated that the promotional videos used Kathiawadi’s name and made reference to the residential area in which she enjoyed a good reputation, in addition to being well-known. Following the release of promotional content for the film, Shah approached court claiming to be aggrieved that his “mother” was portrayed as a prostitute, brothel keeper and mafia queen in the film and the book. Specifically, he raised objection to the fact that Kathiawadi was shown to be smoking a bidi in the promo. Additionally, in Court Shah contended that after the release of the promotional video, people in his vicinity started passing inappropriate comments about him and his family members, even stating that female members were being harassed on account of their association with Kathiawadi. In this light, the Court held “all accused have acted in common intention to portrayed the image of Gangubai Kathiawadi which has affected the reputation of deceased Gangubai in the area where she is living. Now it’s effect are seen on the family of complainant.” Pointing out that Shah’s consent was not obtained prior to the publication of the novel or release of the film’s promo, the Court again proceeded to say, “To portray the image of deceased Gangubai without consent of family members amount to defaming her image,” The mental agony the family had undergone was demonstrable from the complaint Shah had filed ar another police station in December 2020, the Court reasoned. It was held that in the context of the allegations and the grounds raised by Shah, the release of the promo of the film can be considered prima facie defamatory. Even though the book released in 2017, the cause and effect of the act of defamation ensued only after the promo was released, considering the large scale viewership of TV channels, films, OTT platforms and other social media mediums which could lead to the defamation to the family, the Court opined. Holding that there was an allegation of defamation prima facie, and sufficient grounds to proceed against the accused under Sections 500, 501 and 502 of the Indian Penal Code, the Court issued process returnable on May 25, 2021.Click here for the OrderNext Story
Doctors resent sick notes tooOn 2 Sep 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Pressured GPs have been unhappy for years with the time they have to devoteto signing people off sick from work. Dr Phil Peverley, a GP in Sunderland,gives a fascinating insight into the frustrations doctors often face whenissuing patients with sick notes.I am disgusted with myself. I am weak and pathetic. There was no way, justno way that that last bloke was going to get a sick note out of me this week.Four weeks ago, he fell over (at work… on a wet floor… praise be to God formanna from heaven!) and sustained an ankle injury so tiny that I initiallyexamined the wrong leg. The pain and discomfort he suffered must have lasted acouple of minutes, at most, and yet here he is a month later describingpersistent pain, swelling (‘Where?’ I demanded. ‘It comes later in the day,’ heexplained gently, as if to an idiot), sleeplessness, weakness, unsteadiness onhis feet, nightmares, anxiety, and an irrational and probably permanent fear ofdamp floor tiles. I hate this. I hate being forced to take part in this amoral charade, wheredishonest consultation follows dishonest consultation; where the patient liesthrough his teeth, and I know it, and he knows I know it. Yet there seems noway out without a direct accusation of lying. My patient wants treatment. Drugs. Preferably of more than one kind. Hewants to be examined several times, and have his symptoms documented. He wantsan X-ray or a scan, (‘Better order both doctor. Can’t be too careful’) and,very importantly, he wants certification of his disability. But more thananything he wants a referral. Physiotherapy would be good, but an orthopaedicreferral best of all. ‘Look at me!’ he wants to shout. ‘My injury was so bad I had to see aspecialist! My life is ruined! Pay me!’ Neither of us has mentioned it yet, but we both know that it will only be amatter of days before the letter from Rentboye & Hore (Solicitors) lands onmy desk. ‘We act for our client following the incident of the 23rd,’ they willwrite – the slippery, shameless chancers. ‘We can confirm that no action isplanned against you or your practice. However, send us a report, and copies ofall his records from the year dot, you never know your luck.’ I cracked, hating myself, and gave him another sick note. ‘This will be thelast, mind! You’ll be fine by next Monday.’ He smiled a twisted sad smile. ‘Ihope so, doctor. How I wish I could get back to work!’ He got up and left, andI performed my usual Roger Neighbour-style housekeeping and de-stressingtechnique. I leapt to my feet, poised with arms outstretched like a conductorfor a few pregnant seconds, then launched into a manic flurry of obscenegestures and facial contortions. ‘Tourettes Shadow Boxing’, I call it. I washalf way through a more than usually energetic performance, and was standing onone leg miming a fart in the direction of the patient’s chair, when the doorburst open and my patient leapt back into the room. ‘Sorry to interrupt, doctor. I forgot my walking stick.’ He grabbed itquickly and then he was gone. Slowly lowering my leg to the ground, I saw him walk past my window at arate that would have done credit to one of those ridiculous Olympic walkers.There was no trace of a limp, and his walking stick was touching the ground ononly every seventh or eighth step.
Back to overview,Home naval-today VIDEO: USS Abraham Lincoln fires aircraft catapult View post tag: USS Abraham Lincoln Authorities View post tag: RCOH VIDEO: USS Abraham Lincoln fires aircraft catapult Share this article February 11, 2016 View post tag: US Navy View post tag: Newport News Shipbuilding Naval Today recently reported about the U.S. Navy’s fifth Nimitz-class destroyer, USS Abraham Lincoln, performing a “no-load” test firing of one of its aircraft catapults during its Refueling and Complex Overhaul (RCOH) process.The American shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries, whose Newport News Shipbuilding division is performing the RCOH of Abraham Lincoln, has now shared the above shown video of this important milestone.Notably, Newport News Shipbuilding is, according to Huntington Ingalls, the only shipyard that performs the RCOH procedure on the U.S. Navy’s Nimitz-class aircraft carriers.The testing involves shooting the catapults about 20 times with less than two minutes of recovery time between operations. Lincoln is in the final stages of testing all of its steam-powered systems.RCOH is the mid-life refueling overhaul and maintenance availability of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier that produces a recapitalized carrier capable of supporting current and future warfare doctrine. Once Lincoln’s RCOH is complete, the carrier will be equipped to operate in the U.S. Navy fleet for the second half of its 50-year expected service life.Lincoln’s RCOH began in March 2013. The entire process takes about 44 months, during which Newport News shipbuilders complete more than 23 million man-hours of maintenance and modernization work. The ship is on track to redeliver in 2016.Newport News’ vice president of in-service aircraft carrier programs Chris Miner said: “When an aircraft carrier undergoes its overhaul, we completely update and modernize the components in the ship’s catapult systems.”“Many of the components are tested at a land-based facility prior to being installed into the ship for final testing. It’s rewarding to see the hard work of the shipbuilders and the Navy culminate in ‘shooting’ the catapults with steam for the first time in over three years. The testing of the catapults is another signal that this great ship is coming back to life and will soon rejoin the fleet for another 25 years of service to our country.”[mappress mapid=”17695″]Naval Today Staff; Image/Video: Huntington Ingalls Industries
Back to overview,Home naval-today USCG cutter home after seizing $61 million worth of drugs The United States Coast Guard (USCG) cutter Seneca returned on September 25 to her homeport of Boston following a 50-day counter-drug patrol in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.Seneca crewmembers and a tactical law enforcement detachment team conducted multiple interdictions while patrolling international waters off the coast of Central America and South America in support of the Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATF-South).As informed, the interdictions resulted in more than 1,840 kilograms of cocaine and 35 pounds of marijuana seized with an estimated value of $61 million street value.Throughout the patrol, Seneca intercepted four vessels suspected of smuggling illegal contraband; two of the vessels interdicted by Seneca were low-profile go-fast vessels.Seneca also intercepted a fishing vessel suspected of international drug trafficking — after several hours of searching, the boarding team discovered a hidden compartment containing approximately 500 kilograms of cocaine valued at $16.5 million.The efforts by the crew during the counterdrug patrol will aid federal investigators within the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security as they continue their work dismantling transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) pervasive in Central America, Mexico and South America.“In just one interdiction we seized over 50 times the amount of contraband seized along the southwest border in a given month, significantly impacting the economic engine of these transnational criminal organizations. Yet, we need more resources. The 220 metric tons of cocaine the Coast Guard seizes at sea per year represents only a small fraction of the total exports via maritime means,” Cmdr. John Christensen, Seneca’s commanding officer, said.As a part of its Western Hemisphere Strategy, the USCG has increased its presence in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Basin. Joint Interagency Task Force-South works with the coast guard by detecting and monitoring suspicious vessels until the USCG can arrive on scene.

The format for this year’s inaugural mid-summer ball in aid of the Bakers Benevolent Society was that of an old traditional English ball with a modern twist. The evening was a success and put the event firmly back on the baking industry’s social calendar.The aim of the ball, which was held at The Mandarin Oriental at the Hyde Park Hotel, Knightsbridge, London, was to raise the profile of the Bakers’ Benevolent Society and to highlight the good work that the organisation does for its elderly members. It hoped to increase awareness, particularly among younger members of the industry, as their support is crucial to retaining the dignity of residents.The guests came from a broad section of the industry and included the Master of the Worshipful Company of Bakers, Alan Willis, former British Society of Baking chairman Jean Grieves, the past Deacon of the Incorporation of Glasgow Bakers, Robert Lawson, and his wife May Lawson, who had flown down, and the president of the Bakery Students Society, Paul Morrow. There was a stunning display of wheat and bread rolls baked by tutor Jane Hatton and Andreas Misfud of RHM Bread Bakeries, and the dinner was created by master chef Trevor Prichard. After dinner, there was a raffle and auction, which raised approximately £3,500, and then the guests were invited to take to the dance floor. California Raisins and Unifine Food & Bake were among the many supporters of the event, which was organised by Anthony Greenwood, upper warden of the Worshipful Company of Bakers and trustee of the society, and Bala Cumaraswamy.
