Pay code delay no problem, says FSA

first_img THE FSA has insisted that the coming bonus season will go smoothly despite late publication of the remuneration code which will govern payments. The guidelines have to comply with the Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS) regulations, which have been delayed by a month to around 10 December. Banks will have to comply with the rules from 1 January. Concerns that this will throw the bonus season into disarray were dismissed by the FSA. A spokesman said: “It won’t change anything. There will be transitional rules for those who are currently not covered. We are working with the large firms to make sure that they are in the right shape.”Some disagree. “If banks are expected to meet their deadlines, it would be nice if CEBS and the FSA had met theirs,” said Nicholas Stretch of law firm CMS Cameron McKenna. “Reacting to changes in the middle of December is always difficult. People want a printed document that they can put on the table at remuneration meetings.” Share KCS-content Thursday 4 November 2010 10:47 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsappcenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorymoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Conran narrows its losses

first_img Luxury designer and restaurant firm Terence Conran is facing better fortunes, despite reporting losses this year. The firm reduced losses to £806,000, far lower than the £8m reported in 2009. Conran Holding’s fortunes were revived after it launched a value range in its London shops. Chief executive Roger Mavity said that the new line attracts younger consumers to the stores. “So for example you can get very nice dining chairs for £80 or light fittings for £30,” Mavity said. The firm also expanded its London presence with a store on Marylebone High Street. Its flagship London store and restaurant are in Chelsea, and it has other stores in New York, Paris and Dublin.

Authorities now estimate at least 100 homes have been lost.  With more than 32,000 people in the area evacuated, parishes in Colorado Springs have been working to pair parishioners who are evacuated with other parishioners who have room. The Rev. Sally Hubbell, an associate priest at St. Michael’s, which was in the evacuation area, said, “I think half our parish is staying with the other half.”Chapel of Our Saviour, also in Colorado Springs, is offering to help find homes for evacuees, as is St. Matthias in Monument. Grace & St. Stephen’s is also working to pair those with rooms to spare with those who have had to leave their homes, and will host St. Michael’s for services on Sunday if St. Michael’s remains under an evacuation order.Chapel of Our Saviour has also been collecting supplies requested by local agencies offering support to evacuees and firefighters, including Care and Share and Westside Cares. They’ve also offered their parish hall to St. Michael’s as they need it.Today mandatory evacuations spread into Teller County and the Woodland Park area. Cathedral Ridge, the diocesan conference and retreat center outside of Woodland Park, has closed for the next seven days. Their staff is facilitating alternative locations for groups who had reservations there during that time.Episcopal Relief & Development has been in touch with the office of the bishop to see how they can help. The office of the bishop will take donations designated for fire relief and get them to either parishes in the area, Episcopal Relief & Development, or local agencies who are providing direct services to evacuees, firefighters and those who have lost property.There are also evacuations in Boulder, thanks to the Flagstaff Fire, which remains relatively small at something over 200 acres, but given weather conditions, authorities are concerned it could grow. And, in the Fort Collins area, the High Park Fire has burned more than 87,000 acres and 257 homes.  Authorities there hope that favorable weather conditions in the area will allow evacuees to return to their neighborhoods within the next 48 hours.There are also fires burning near Mancos and Pagosa Springs in southwestern Colorado. The Rev. Bob Seney, who serves the vicar at St. Paul’s in Mancos, reports that conditions there are improving.  “A light rain last night helped and clouds are helping to keep lower temps this a.m., “ he reports. “All of this is helping the fire fighters.  They are positive in their reports, but always with the warning that with a fire things can change quickly.”  The Rev. Doug Neel, rector at St. Patrick’s in Pagosa, reports that ranches in that area have been evacuated due to the Little Sand Creek Fire, which is 30 percent contained at this point.The Rev. Dean Smith, who serves as the vicar at Peace in Christ Episcopal / Lutheran ministry in Elizabeth, sent this Litany in Time of Wildfires from the Rocky Mountain Synod (ECLA):Litany in Time of WildfiresThis litany may be used by those who are concerned by the destruction of wildfires.Holy God, in the wake of fires that devour and consume,Refresh us with the water of life.In the barren places of ash and dust,Restore us with the water of life.When all we can see is devastation and despair,Renew us with the water of life.When those whose vocations are to protect the property of others are tired and weary,Renew them with the water of life.When the creatures of the forest are frightened, displaced, or injured,Renew them with the water of life.When the fires have ceased, the cycle of renewal begins, and the plants and animals return,Renew them with the water of life.In Christ, we are washed clean.We are refreshed.In Christ, we drink from the wellspring of hope.We are restored.In Christ, we dance in the fountain of life.We are renewed.Thanks be to God.

These homes tell the story of a family and examine how large suburban blocks can be adapted to deal with generational change and the rapid rise of property prices. The site was purchased in 1972 and was the long-time family home of our clients. 40 years on, the children had grown up, moved out and the original Californian bungalow had fallen into disrepair. Circumstances arose requiring one of the sons and his young family to move back to live with their father and the decision was made to build two homes on the site so they could all live together without… living together.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe brief was simple; create two generous homes on the site which didn’t feel like townhouses. There were several precedents along the leafy, eastern suburb street for subdividing a block of land; side by side townhouses with front facades dominated by garages and rooms accessed off a long corridor. We flipped this arrangement and located one dwelling behind the other, providing each home with large entry spaces, generous living areas and gardens oriented to the northern aspect.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe front façade gives little away to the street with the new houses designed to read as a single residence, referencing the established rhythm of the streetscape. A simple material palette of black zinc cladding and stained black timber battens reinforce the sculptural form of the building. Patterned timber screens conceal the large front windows, providing privacy to the inhabitants and eroding the elements typically associated with a house. The two homes have been designed specifically for their inhabitants; a two-bedroom apartment at the front for the father and a larger, three-bedroom apartment for the son and his young family at the rear.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!Front ElevationSave this picture!© Rory GardinerElements typically associated with much larger houses have been used to provide a sense of space and in the tightly planned block. Entry to the back apartment is via a dramatic double height foyer space, lit from above by a large circular skylight and containing a solid steel staircase. Heavily textured concrete render and black timber are used on the internal walls which have been designed to slowly reveal and delineate the living spaces as one moves through the house.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThis development has successfully provided two generations with generous homes on the one site -affording them the associated social and financial benefits. The sculptural façade provides a counterpoint to the adjacent townhouses and a positive contribution to the streetscape and wider neighborhood.  Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessBEN THANH Restaurant / NISHIZAWAARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsTwisted Valley / Grupo AraneaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Houses Manufacturers: De Dietrich, Miele, ROGER SELLER, Akzolux Australia Pty, Euroluce, VMZINC “COPY” Australia Washington Avenue Townhouses / Pandolfini ArchitectsSave this projectSaveWashington Avenue Townhouses / Pandolfini Architectslast_img read more

This project represents an effort to scale up a typology through viral repetition while maintaining architectural and design quality through imagination and playfulness. It is somewhat unique in that it is not a standalone project, but an organic progression from a prior successful design, which is arguably more representative of real‐world architectural practice. In 2016, we gratefully accepted the ArchiTeam Award in the commercial category for our Studio Garage, a typology‐busting project tackling an architectural solution to the problem of effectively working from home in a time when the “working from home” was still a relatively esoteric luxury reserved for executives with enough clout to negotiate flexible working arrangements, or small scale entrepreneurs in creative fields, such as musicians or architects.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!Plans sectionSave this picture!© Peter BennettsIn the Covid era, “working from home” has unceremoniously burst into mainstream consciousness, making the need for a functionally separate form within a residential site dedicated to commercial or professional activities, not a luxury, but almost a necessity, as harried working parents all over Melbourne can attest to. Our continuing development of this typology is an example of how to architecturally engage with this rapidly forced merging of residential and commercial design.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!© Peter BennettsThis new project, which we’ve whimsically named ‘Colour Shingle’, has the fascinating distinction of being right next door to the Studio Garage, a result of a neighbour’s covetous glances, evidence of the viral power of an idea given form. (Incidentally, the neighbour on the other side of the Studio Garage has also requested one.) It is not the only other backyard commercial project we have completed – we have been exploring and evolving this typology on narrow residential sites across North Melbourne, including our own home `Cubby office’ – but it is unique in being right next to a previous one.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe challenge of this particular project then was how to evolve an already successful design so that you don’t simply create a carbon copy, while still coming up with something that complemented the adjacent original design. To that end then, we’ve made the same key design choice to turn the external wall into a non‐structural, semi‐translucent façade, with the stairwell placed between the false wall.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessDawn’s House / Khuon StudioSelected ProjectsRIN’s House / 85 DesignSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeKrisna Cheung ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNorth MelbourneOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on September 18, 2020Cite: “Colour Shingle House / Krisna Cheung Architects” 17 Sep 2020.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Rausings kick off focus on youth & children with £1.5m donation to Greenhouse Sports Tagged with: Major gift “The last 12 months have been extraordinary. Young Londoners growing up in our toughest communities have been disproportionately impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. They need support now more than ever as the road to ‘catch up’ what has been lost in terms of education, milestones and enriching experiences is a long and vital one.“We are delighted to have the transformational support of Julia & Hans Rausing as we embark on the next chapter of Greenhouse Sports journey. Thanks to them we will ensure Greenhouse coaches are there for more young people than ever through our strategic expansion to test new initiatives, increase our engagement with schools and collaborate more widely across the sector. All whilst harnessing the power of sport as a tool for social change.” Julia and Hans Rausing are giving a £1.5 million donation to Greenhouse Sports to help the charity embed its programmes in schools and increase its reach to more than 7,000 young people a year.The Rausings have chosen to focus their support on young people at the start of this year, due to the disruption to their lives and opportunities because of coronavirus. This is the first of a series of donations to be announced to support young people in the UK, who have been significantly impacted, like much of the charity sector, by a fall in funding in the past year alongside an increase in demand for their services.The couple have supported Greenhouse Sports since its inception, and part-funded its Community Sports Centre, which now has over 2,000 members from disadvantaged backgrounds.Julia and Hans Rausing commented:“We have seen first-hand the impact that Greenhouse Sports has had over a significant period of time in improving the life chances of children in difficult circumstances across London. This donation will enable them to continue their excellent programmes and further level the playing field for more young people, who have faced much of the last year away from schools and the youth support services that are so desperately needed.”Beatrice Butsana-Sita, CEO at Greenhouse Sports, commented: Advertisement More on Julia and Hans Rausing:Rausing Charity Survival Fund to benefit over 300 charities 1 October 2020Julia & Hans Rausing launch £10m Charity Survival Fund 7 July 2020Julia and Hans Rausing donate £16.5 million to Covid-19 causes 27 March 2020Julia and Hans Rausing Trust gives £2.5m to healthcare charities tackling COVID-19 20 March 2020 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 1 March 2021 | Newslast_img read more

Major Conferences, Meetings and Events Fill Pasadena Facilities

Along with its scenic streets, world-class art collections, celebrated landmarks, historic neighborhoods and an endless assortment of exciting places to eat, shop and be entertained, Pasadena has become a vital destination city for meetings, conventions and special events.That reputation continues to grow, with the addition of the Great Minds in STEM Conference that will fill the Pasadena Convention Center and occupy more than 4,000 hotel room nights throughout the city from Oct. 13-18, 2015.Great Minds in STEM is the gateway for Hispanics in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Established in 1989, as the Hispanic Engineers National Achievement Awards Conference, the event has expanded to include other STEM fields.The non-profit organization focuses on STEM educational awareness programs for students from kindergarten to career, providing resources for recognition and recruitment of Hispanics in STEM on a national level, connecting multi-areas of engineering and science arenas to the general population. The Hispanic Engineers National Achievement Awards Conference was last held in Pasadena in 2004.“We’re delighted to welcome the Great Minds in STEM Conference, which has doubled in size and is an ideal fit for our facilities and our city,” said Michael Ross, chief executive officer of the Pasadena Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This and other new upcoming events have a wide level of interest and will attract visitors to Pasadena, boosting local tourism and our city’s economy by filling hotel rooms, restaurants and stores,” Ross said.With accommodations to host up to 2,500 guests each day at city venues ranging from quiet inns to five-star convention hotels, including 1,500 that are within close walking distance, Pasadena is drawing the interest of more trade and industry conferences and meetings, along with numerous public events.For example, the American Phytopathological Society, the premier society dedicated to high-quality, innovative plant pathology research, will hold its 2015 annual meeting in Pasadena, booking more than 3,300 hotel room nights in the city from July 31-Aug. 6, 2015. More than 1,500 participants will engage in symposia and discussion sessions, present research results, view hundreds of technical posters, attend special events and learn about new products and services.The American Choral Directors Association will hold its 2016 Western Division Conference at the Pasadena Convention Center in February 2016. Traditional choral performances will take place in the Pasadena Civic Auditorium and throughout Pasadena. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the conference, which organizers estimate will fill more than 2,300 hotel room nights.More than 1,200 rooms are expected to be filled from Sept. 18-21, 2015, when the Garden Writers Association holds its 2015 annual symposium in Pasadena. The organization provides professionals in the gardening communications field with career development and education opportunities.The California Association of School Business Officials will call Pasadena home in April 2016 for the organization’s 2016 Annual Conference for professional development in all K-14 business disciplines. Hotel occupancy for the conference is expected to exceed 1,350 room nights.“We’re seeing more and more interesting and impactful meetings, conferences and special events like these choose the Pasadena Convention Center or the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, and we look forward to many other exciting new events that will be coming to Pasadena in the near future,” Ross said.The expanded Gold LEED-Certified Pasadena Convention Center features a 55,000-square-foot exhibit hall (expandable to 80,000 square feet), 25,000-square-foot ballroom, 29 meeting rooms, 3,000-seat Civic Auditorium, and 22,000-square-foot outdoor plaza.Five major Pasadena hotels also offer additional event space. The Langham Huntington has more than 33,000 square feet of restored meeting space, which includes the 11,220-square-foot Langham Ballroom. The Clara Vista Executive Retreat is a 1930s-era Spanish mansion, which is ideal for intimate meetings.The Westin Pasadena offers 26,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 2,200-square-foot meeting room on the hotel’s plaza level. The Pasadena Hilton features 28,000 square feet of meeting space, while the Sheraton Pasadena Hotel has 14 meeting and banquet rooms with more than 12,000 square feet of space.In addition to traditional meeting and event venues, Pasadena also offers a seemingly endless collection of other unique sites for meetings and special events, ranging from spectacular gardens and stately educational institutions to museums and theatres. The city’s abundance of dining, shopping, cultural and entertainment options, all conveniently located near the Pasadena Convention Center, make Pasadena a desirable destination for event planners.The Pasadena Convention and Visitors Bureau is a non-profit marketing organization dedicated to promoting Pasadena as a desirable meeting, convention and leisure travel destination.
