first_img KCS-content whatsapp LUNCHBREAKS for the employees of Bank of New York Mellon Asset Management will never be the same again, after ITV rolled into the firm’s neighbourhood last Thursday to film its new legal drama The Jury.The ITV camera crews have been filming on location just a stone’s throw from BNY Mellon’s Queen Victoria Street HQ – firstly in the bankers’ favourite coffee shop on the historic Carter Lane, L’Express Coffee, and then in the corner shop opposite the Rising Sun pub, St Paul’s Tobacco (pictured right).Lead actress Julie Walters was not on set on the day of the shoot in question, but a City observer did spot Land Girls actor Stephen Mackintosh, who graciously stepped aside to let BNY Mellon workers go in and out of the shops between takes.The “gripping, dark and emotionally charged” five-part drama from ITV Studios – which stars Walters as defence barrister Emma Watts, who battles against the character played by The Thick of It actor Roger Allam to free a man convicted for the violent murder of three women he met on the internet – will hit viewers’ screens this autumn.So make a note in your diary to tune in to see if any senior executives, unintentionally made it into the final cut as an extra – perhaps when the camera crew moved on to William Hill on Ludgate Hill. As they say, the camera never lies.REALITY CHECKMARTIN Winter, the UK senior partner of law firm Taylor Wessing, has just returned from Dete in Zimbabwe, where he completed a “warm-up” 10km run in aid of the Jane Bubear Sports Foundation ahead of his London Marathon effort this Sunday.“All the money raised will go towards buying sports fleeces for the area’s primary school children to protect against ground frost on winter mornings,” Winter explained.“Death from pneumonia is too often the outcome for those with low resistance – often from being HIV positive – in a country where life expectancy is in the low 40s.”Winter (pictured above awarding the medals after the race) also visited two of the schools in the area, where he reported it was on a “knife edge” whether the children received government funding for their place, in a system where no primary education is paid for.“The children’s need has to be at the highest level before they qualify for a grant,” he said of one primary school where over 200 of the 550 students were orphans.“It is a serious reality check because none of the children are moaning about things, they just get on with it.”TAKE A BREAKNO-ONE could accuse Nick Bubb, the well-respected retail analyst from Arden Partners (pictured below), of shirking his work responsibilities. But is it really a coincidence he managed to be out-of-office in one of the busiest periods of the retail year?During the two weeks that Bubb was away skiing in Colorado, he missed the Mothercare and M&S fourth-quarter sales and the Halfords pre-close announcement, as well as a string of profit warnings from HMV, Carpetright and Dixons.“We have a bit to catch up on,” he confessed to readers of his first post-holiday email bulletin yesterday.When The Capitalist finally tracked down Bubb, he confessed: “It’s a fair cop. But even if I was bone idle, at least things did work out my way, since I predicted there would be profit warnings before I went away.”Bubb said he “made every effort” to keep up with developments back in the UK by checking his BlackBerry from the slopes but, given the seven-hour time difference, he made an executive decision to sleep through the daily morning briefings.“I draw the line at doing conference calls at 1.30 in the morning,” he said. Fair enough.FOOT IN THE DOORGOOD to see the City is taking action in an area where the Liberal Democrats are procrastinating by offering 75 internships paying up to £400 a week this summer to help school-leavers get their foot in the door of the world of finance.The 20 firms that have signed up to the business traineeship scheme – including Lloyd’s of London, Clifford Chance, Royal Bank of Canada and UBS – will pay students “the standard competitive graduate salary for the role” to give A-level school-leavers from some of London’s most deprived areas a head start on the career ladder. Clegg, take note.

This prototype is built near Granite Falls, Washington, in the Cascade Mountains about 50 miles north east of Seattle. A second prototype is in the planning stages for an urban site in San Diego. This house is part of a series of projects that explore the opportunities for using prefabrication techniques and new building construction methods and materials to build low cost, high quality, site-adaptable and program-adaptable manufactured buildings.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0Fiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinPlasticsKalwall®Kalwall in Psychotherapy and Counseling CenterMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingAlthough the building site for this prototype has quite unrestrictive zoning constraints, the challenging topography and geotechnical conditions play a strong role in defining the overall design strategy for this project and as a prototype for difficult hillside sites. The small ground floor building footprint/foundation reduces the cost of this expensive area of the house, and allows the points of attachment to adapt to varying slope and soil conditions with minimal disruption of the natural topography. Save this picture!The building system is a marriage of two common, standardized, mass-produced building elements – a prefabricated steel structural frame (of the type commonly manufactured for light-weight commercial structures), and a structural insulated panel system (SIPS) that provides all non-glazed building envelope areas. Significant economies are achieved by using the same low-labor structural panels for walls, floors and roof. The system is designed around a small number of interchangeable, rearrangeable assemblies for efficiencies of time and cost, and to minimize the environmental impacts of on-site construction. Save this picture!Although the materials and methods of construction are chosen for efficiency and affordability, the underlying design principles guiding the development of the system have the larger goals of producing affordable, high quality buildings that offer variety, adaptability, convertibility, strength, simplicity, spatial richness, and optimized access to views and light.Project gallerySee allShow lessLawn House / Altro StudioArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardcenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Cantilever House / Anderson Anderson ArchitectureSave this projectSaveCantilever House / Anderson Anderson Architecture CopyAbout this officeAnderson Anderson ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesGranite FallsUnited StatesPublished on April 20, 2010Cite: “Cantilever House / Anderson Anderson Architecture” 20 Apr 2010.

Kidnapped journalist accuses Pakistani secret service agents

first_img News Mohammad Rafique Baloch, the vice-president of the Karachi Union of Journalists (KUJ), was kidnapped yesterday in south Karachi and held for several hours. He was on his way to Karachi’s high court to defend pay and working conditions of journalists in Sindh province at a hearing initiated by the KUJ when the incident took place. It is quite clear that the aim of the attackers was to prevent him from attending the hearing.Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to carry out an exhaustive investigation and arrest those guilty of this kidnapping as soon as possible.If the secret services are indeed behind this incident, as Baloch believes, the Pakistani government should, without fail, provide an explanation for this unacceptable behaviour aimed at preventing journalists from defending their rights.“I think the secret services are behind my brief disappearance,” Baloch told Reporters Without Borders. “They kept me blindfolded for four hours.” He said he suspected that one of his abductors was a secret service agent who had been ordered to keep him away from the trial to avoid trouble.Pakistan is the world’s most dangerous country for journalists. Thirteen have lost their lives there in the past 13 months.

Where Each Presidential Candidate Stands on Housing

first_img Previous: FHFA Adjusts Deadline for Purchase of Qualified Loans Next: Study: Minority Rental Investors More Likely to Struggle  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago With election day looming, the Chief Economist and VP at LendingTree, Tendayi Kapfidze, published a detailed list of the presidential candidates’ stances and actions as they relate to housing issues.”Although housing isn’t one of the hottest topics on the campaign trail, the outcome of the election could have a profound impact on the housing market,” Kapfidze wrote. “President Donald Trump, the Republican incumbent, hasn’t laid out any detailed, forward-looking proposals for housing policy, but does have a record he is running on. The Democratic challenger, former vice president Joe Biden, has ambitious housing policy goals outlined on his website.”Kapfidze proceeds to dive into the subject matter with two bulleted lists.Here is what Donald Trump says he’ll do/has done, according to Kapfidze, who expounds further on each point on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by 2024.Rolled back key housing discrimination law–in July 2020, the Trump administration ended the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation, which was introduced by President Barack Obama in 2015 and was a provision of the 1968 Fair Housing Act.Create “opportunity zones” (“the goal is to create economic opportunity and employment through the development of commercial properties and improve housing availability and quality via residential investment”)Kapfidze summarizes that “the President broadly believes that the government should have a limited role in housing regulation and finance. As such, his proposals generally reduce the involvement of the federal government in lending, by proposing to privatize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Trump is also against various consumer protections, having reduced the enforcement powers of the CFPB. He has also worked to remove policies designed to protect consumers against housing discrimination.”As for Joe Biden, he has/promises to (Kapfidze, on, expounds on each of his following points):Released a detailed $640 billion housing planCreate a new advanceable tax credit of up to $15,000 to increase homeownership“Enact legislation requiring any state receiving federal dollars through the Community Development Block Grants or Surface Transportation Block Grants to develop a strategy for inclusionary zoning””Biden’s plans are largely designed to assist those who face difficulty and discrimination in accessing the housing market. Broadly, his plans aim to make some progress addressing historical inequities in how housing finance and development has been conducted in the United States,” Kapfidze said. “Biden has released detailed plans covering access to housing finance, fighting the racial homeownership gap, increasing affordable housing, protecting renters, fighting homelessness and increasing the supply of homes through zoning changes.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
