It is expected to seal similar deals with other European nations imminently.UBS faces demands for clients’ unpaid tax and the possibility of more clients withdrawing money from offshore accounts. The bank said clients from Austria, Britain, France, Germany and Italy had already withdrawn SwFr20bn from its accounts in the past 12 months, according to slides in an investor presentation in London.“We believe that SwFr15-40bn are still at risk as a result of changes in tax regulations,” said Juerg Zeltner, head of UBS wealth management, adding the bank had SwFr320bn invested client assets in Europe at the end of September. However, UBS said it remained on track to reach an annual pre tax profit of SwFr15bn by 2014 at the latest, despite a shock third-quarter investment banking loss due to low client activity after UBS cut risky but potentially lucrative proprietary trading.Investment bank head Carsten Kengeter said UBS was well placed to benefit from an upturn in client activity after hiring new staff, though trading growth would also mean more risk. Separately the Swiss government said US tax authorities had withdrawn a summons against UBS after the bank was forced to hand over details of 4,000 accounts of clients suspected of tax evasion. center_img Show Comments ▼ Clients ditch UBS following new tax rules Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at whatsapplast_img read more

Outgoing Dutch regulators’ fury at online gaming deadlock

first_img Kansspelautoriteit chiefs tell politicians to get delayed online gaming bill passed Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Outgoing Dutch regulators’ fury at online gaming deadlock Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Legal & compliance The outgoing heads of the Netherlands’ gambling regulator have taken a parting shot at politicians who have failed to pass gambling regulations during their six years in office.Chairman Jan Suyver (pictured left) and vice-chairman Henk Kesler (right) left Kansspelautoriteit last week, replaced by René Jansen and Bernadette van Buchem. Suyver and Kesler arrived at the regulator in 2012 on the understanding that the Remote Gaming Bill would soon be passed and that their task would be to oversee a regulated market and combat illegal supply.Six years later and the legislation remains in limbo in the Senate, while it is estimated that one million Dutch citizens are regularly using unregulated, unlicensed websites.After leaving their posts last week – shortly after Joop Pot replaced Marja Appelman as CEO – Suyver and Kesler have gone public with their frustrations, and the publishing of an interview with them on Kansspelautoriteit’s website suggests the regulatory body itself will not stay quiet about the impasse.“Unfortunately, we were not allowed to do what we wanted to do,” Kesler said. “For that reason I do not look back with great satisfaction.“A nice organisation has been set up, but politics has not delivered what we were promised at the start of the Gaming Authority: a toolbox to steer online gambling on a regulated market.“I’ve become pretty cranky now and again. There is a lot of complaining in the Lower House, but they should get along with the necessary legislation.”Kesler believes more government resources could have been directed towards the passage of the act, explaining that progress was sometimes stymied by the slow response to parliamentary questions. However, he is optimistic that the government will pursue the implementation of the legislation as it was mentioned in the coalition agreement.Suyver said politicians must forget their ideological or moral opposition to gambling, accept that people will do it legally or illegally and look to create a framework that protects them – following the lead of countries such as Denmark and Sweden.Suyver said: “The consumer simply has the right to be protected. I always say: even though you are against gambling, that cannot be a reason not to arrange it. Rather, on the contrary, I would say.”Speaking earlier this year about the appointment of Jansen and Van Buchem, the regulator said in a statement: “The Gaming Authority sees Jansen and van Buchem as the right people to continue the course taken by the Kansspelautoriteit and to lead the organisation through the planned modernisation of the gaming policy.”While the lower house of the Dutch parliament approved the Remote Gaming Bill in 2016, it is still awaiting Senate approval.In June, the country’s coalition government stated its intention to push ahead with the process, with the aim of introducing new regulations by 2020. 9th October 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlandslast_img read more

2019 Rugby World Cup: Japan 30-10 Russia

Japan will need to improve ahead of their next match against Ireland. When the slick handling comes off they look dangerous, particularly given their speed, but there were too many errors in this game and they lacked composure under high balls and restarts – something Ireland will surely have noted.Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageStar manFor Russia, Tagir Gadzhiev was a real menace in attack and defence, while Vladimir Ostroushko showed decent touches in midfield. The Japan back row – Michael Leitch, Pieter Labuschagne and Kazuki Himeno – got through a lot of work but in a performance littered with errors, it has to be Kotaro Matsushima. The winger was clinical when given opportunities, used his pace to good effect and became the first Japan player to score a hat-trick at a Rugby World Cup. Job done!Full house: Most of the crowd in Tokyo were bedecked in Japan’s red and white (Getty Images)The reactionJapan wing Kotaro Matsushima: “It is my first three tries as a Japanese player. We were able to connect with each other and the roar of the fans became our driving force.”Russia captain Vasily Artemyev: “Everyone could see we were playing at the same intensity as Japan. We were pushing them to the edges and we were getting some dividends. Maybe we could have scored a couple more penalties if we went for it but we chose to apply the pressure through our set-piece, but unfortunately, we didn’t get the result we wanted.”The TeamsJapan: William Tupou (Ryohei Yamanaka 70); Kotaro Matsushima, Timothy Lafaele, Ryoto Nakamura, Lomano Lava Lemeki; Yu Tamura (Rikiya Matsuda 67), Yutaka Nagare (Fumiaki Tanaka 61); Keita Inagaki (Isileli Nakajima 55), Shota Horie (Atsushi Sakate 75), Asaeli Ai Valu (Jiwon Koo 55), Wimpie van der Walt (Luke Thompson 61), James Moore, Michael Leitch (captain, Hendrik Tui 70), Pieter Labuschagne, Kazuki Himeno.Tries: Matsushima 12, 39, 69, Labuschagne 47.

William Tupou failed to take a high ball in the 22 and it bounced into the grateful arms of Kirill Golosnitskiy, who ran over for a simple early score.The tournament hosts led 12-7 by half-time; Kotaro Matsushima was the beneficiary of impressive offloading from his centres to cross twice (well, three times actually but one was rightly ruled out by the TMO for a knock-on).Dive time: Japan wing Kotaro Matsushima goes over for a try against Russia (Getty Images)Back-row Pieter Labuschagne gave his side some breathing room early in the second half as he ripped the ball in the tackle and broke clear for a try.Russia captain Vasily Artemyev then played a part in Japan’s bonus-point try in the 69th minute. Collecting a kick near his touchline in the 22, he kicked it infield where Japan had numbers and were able to spread the ball wide, with Matsushima on hand to get his hat-trick.You can watch Japan’s first try here…last_img read more

The 3,200 sq ft residence is located in the Crestwood Hills neighborhood of Brentwood, California, a post war development of modest mid-century homes. The project consists of the rebuilding of an existing building with a new second story wing. The new architecture compliments the existing residence and builds upon the original intentions of Quincy Jones and the other pioneers of this progressive neighborhood.Save this picture!© Art Gray PhotographyThe architecture is a direct result of the various conditions inherent within the site. The peculiar geometry of the second story volume is a result of the existing site conditions and the current building setback regulations. Openings to the views and the need for solid walls for shear and privacy were also factors that defined the building envelope.Save this picture!SectionThe building is low and unassuming at the street and in keeping with the scale of the neighboring homes. The residence opens to the courtyard with walls of glass. A series of bent, steel moment frames straddle the existing one story structure and are expressed in the new architecture. The folded planes of the walls and roof are an extension of the rolling topography of the hillside site. The folded planes are sheathed with interlocking metal panels. The interior is clad with wood, blurring the distinction between wall, ceiling and floor. Views are framed as the building projects outward to the city, the ocean and the neighboring Getty Center in the distance. Save this picture!© Art Gray PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessOrandajima House Community Centre / Martin van der Linden + Ayumu Ota + Yuko KawakitaSelected ProjectsBOX 298 Building / Andrade Morettin Arquitetos AssociadosSelected Projects Share Photographs Tigertail / Patrick Tighe Architecture “COPY” United Stateslast_img read more

The design strategy has been to maximise external space and to develop a building type that manifests the idea of “communality”. The resulting “cluster” model places a court at the heart of the site beneath which the communal facilities are located and, around which the six houses are laid out. However, the main outlook of the houses is outwards into the gardens, rather than facing inwards around the court. Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe scheme allows for a continuous perimeter of communal gardens which offer varied growing conditions and atmospheres. The gardens should provide an excellent habitat for local flora and fauna. As a result, there is a strong feeling of the project being intrinsically linked to its land.  Both the plot that surrounds the perimeter of the project and the inner court emphasise this bond to the site. Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe four 3-storey houses are clad in untreated vertical timber boards, the two 2-storey houses in brick. “Landscape” timber framed windows allow oblique views within the site. The timber elevations to the court will use wider boards and planted battens. This, more rudimentary, detail will caste strong shadows and be more tactile than the smoother outward elevations. Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe philosophy is to reduce the household’s collective impact on the environment in the construction of their homes as well as in their daily lives. The performance of the building fabric – insulation, air tightness, and heat recovery ventilation – plays a vital role with low-cost and proven technology. The only renewables are solar thermal panels. The embodied energy of construction has been considered in every respect: recycling waste material from the demolition; timber superstructure; timber cladding; timber fenestration and partial green roofs.Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuThe houses share a palette of simple, robust, contemporary materials.  Each house has been designed to have a generous provision of natural light whilst ensuring as far as possible that homes do not overlook one another. In fact, the subtle integration of design measures to ensure an agreed level of privacy has been essential to HHbR’s approach in interpreting their client’s needs. Yet, compared to typical terraced houses where the public sphere ends at the front door, it is clear on entering 1-6 Copper Lane that, although defined, boundaries between public and private space have been extended beyond the norm. Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuIt is evident that HHbR have sought an architectural manifestation of communality in their design of 1-6 Copper Lane and created an ideal way of shared living. As Ken Rorrison of HHbR observes. Save this picture!Section“This project is not about creating ideal bespoke houses for six individual clients, but making a collective whole that is bigger than the sum of its parts. Generally, the houses are all made from the same agreed components. Their variation is derived in response to their differing location in relation to their immediate and surrounding neighbours.” Save this picture!© Ioana MarinescuFrom a housing crisis perspective, Simon Henley describes how the figures are in favour of more co-housing: “We are interested in how building typologies can evolve to accommodate changing attitudes and behaviour. The need for new housing that is affordable in this country is at a critical stage. We need to rethink how people can make the most of their homes. As designers, architects can have a fundamental role in creating accommodation that responds to new ways of life. In major cities, like London, financial pressures affect how people think about space but recent phenomena like working from home and the need to reconnect communities have created a call for new housing types. We are very pleased that the 1-6 Copper Lane project gave us an opportunity to think about what housing can be whilst reflecting on these and many other issues like the desire for sustainable living.”Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessKäpäcläjui Indigenous Training Center / Entre Nos AtelierSelected ProjectsHouse in Ávila / Claudia Olalla GilSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Stoke Newington, London, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.

Sunrise House is a beachfront home in the dunes of the Australian NSW South Coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The original brief was humble, calling for a house that was as comfortable for a family of four, as it was for an extended family or group of friends. It was also acknowledged early on that it should be of a high quality to withstand the coastal elements and ensure a longevity in construction the locality was generally deprived of. The brief called for the design to make the best use of the Pacific Ocean whilst remaining conscious of the home’s street presence, avoiding it feeling obnoxious.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Michael NicholsonThe site runs parallel to a popular coastal road, and the building form sits between this road and the beach. Early investigations proved that ocean views would be obtained from a first floor, hence a decision was made to locate the bedrooms on the ground plane, and living zones above. The linear interior opens to the horizon whilst providing privacy from the street, engaging all spaces with the sunrise. A lighter steel frame sits over a solid concrete plinth and spaces ow from inside to out, as do the materials that de ne those spaces. With its long edge running parallel to the public domain, privacy was a key issue on both levels of the site. Bedrooms are positioned on the ocean side whilst the street façade is clad with solid recycled timbers that deliberately open up where light and ventilation are required whilst maintaining privacy.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonA generous, lush garden along the street highlights the architecture within its dense foliage, and both garden and building are embraced by the public. The arrangement of spaces is simple, with focus on the amenity of space and connection to both the horizon and the landscape. Privacy is defined by form and used to create positive and negative space to de ne function and to embrace the natural light. Bedrooms have several modes of privacy, whereas the first-floor living spaces obtain the horizon view and seamlessly become part of the exterior.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Michael NicholsonEssentially a beach house, Sunrise House offers a relaxed sense of place. A ground floor cabana seamlessly opens up to the garden and pool, and the surrounding decking material runs through these spaces before continuing through the main hall and interior. The outcome is a sequence of movement into the home that is less precious if one has sand on their feet, and continues our exploration into the seamless connection between interior and exterior. This same theme continues on the living level where the entire living space opens up via perpendicular sequences of floor-to-ceiling glazed doors. The living zone becomes a deck hovering over the landscape, from which one gazes across the ocean to the horizon.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonSunrise House approaches good sustainable design through passive design strategy, general environmental inclusions and a focus on the quality of build. The building forms are positioned in a way that natural light is embraced where desired, and controlled where protection is required. The ocean’s breeze is embraced as a natural form of cooling in summer and ventilation generally. Rainwater harvesting measures are integrated into a basement, and a solar array has been positioned onto the at roof structure that gets direct light all day long.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonHigh-quality glazing systems have been used throughout, and the construction is robust and designed to survive, with off-form concrete embraced for its durability. Recycled Australian hardwoods screen the home from the elements and are used extensively throughout. The house is the result of a genuine collaboration between multiple disciplines: a private client with a vision, a team of driven builders, a creative engineer, an enthusiastic landscape designer, and the architects. In this respect the outcome is as rewarding for us is it is for all who were involved, especially the homeowners who, within our process, play a pivotal role. The owners also challenged the team to enterprise unconventional solutions in specific areas, especially regarding the structure. Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Takatori / Tatsunori Kakuno/ tatta architectsSelected ProjectsMuju Dada Pension / KDDHSelected Projects Share Australia Planner: Electrolightlast_img read more

Following the holiday home that Piet Hein Eek designed in 2005 in the forest near Epse, we were approached by a family who has also purchased a plot of land a few hundred metres further in the same woodland. In this super beautiful place, in the middle of the woods in between the mature trees, are two old holiday homes linked by a garage in between. The elongated building with an open space on the south facade was in a poor state of repair and in no way met modern living requirements.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSave this picture!© Thomas MayerHowever, the position in relation to the sun and the open space with a view of the forest has a quality you can only dream of. Our task was to make the little house architecturally sound as simply as possible and to turn it into a wonderful holiday location for the whole family. The elongation created a problem as the rear façade faces the road (the dark side) and has almost no view. We wanted to situate as many bedrooms as possible on this side in order to create the living spaces on the other side.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSave this picture!Floor Plan and SectionSave this picture!© Thomas MayerThis decision ultimately led to an obvious solution; to divide the narrow building lengthwise into two sections. The living area has a classical layout in three parts: the kitchen, the dining table and the lounge area. In this case, however, the layout is open and elongated with the kitchen in the middle, flanked by the other two areas. So the kitchen is positioned exactly in the centre, in the place of the original garage between the two old houses. In the summer, when dining outside, the layout can become even better as the table can then be placed outside, at right angles to the kitchen.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerIn order to create sufficient space for the kitchen, it is backed onto the bathrooms, which can be narrower than the bedrooms. The axis from left to right was not only important for creating a layout with the open living space on the sunny side and bedrooms on the shady side, but it also led us to add an apex to the roof of the building, which adds sufficient height to the bedrooms, as well as windows, light and air over the full length of the building.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThis new solution for the roof was possible as it was originally in such a poor state that it needed to be replaced anyway. The characteristic old stone walls with windows and doors, the original reasons for purchasing the houses, remain. The beautiful new layout respects the existing elements, especially how the building was built in relation to its surroundings, and realises a roofing solution that developed from the limitations that the houses originally presented.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerProject gallerySee allShow lessLaboratory and Logistics Building / Mikkelsen ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBS House / ReisarchitetturaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily The Netherlands “COPY” Save this picture!© Thomas Mayer+ 14Curated by María Francisca González Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers: Unilin, Leeuwerik CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Epse, The Netherlands 2018 Woodland Cottage Epse / Eek en Dekkers CopyAbout this officeEek en DekkersOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentEpseThe NetherlandsPublished on November 12, 2018Cite: “Woodland Cottage Epse / Eek en Dekkers” 12 Nov 2018.

Japan’s Beef Tariff Increase May Spark Trade War

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Japan’s Beef Tariff Increase May Spark Trade War Previous articleCommentary: American Gothic has Got to GoNext articleA look Ahead At August Market Action Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter SHARE The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association says the increased tariff on beef imports to Japan underscores the “urgent need” for a bilateral trade agreement between Japan and the United States. Japan announced it would increase the tariff on frozen beef imports from 38.5 percent to 50 percent until April 2018. NCBA President Craig Uden says the tariffs “unfairly distort the market and punish both producers and consumers.” Japan was the top export market for U.S. beef, valued at $1.5 billion in 2016.According to data compiled by the U.S. Meat Export Federation, first quarter U.S. beef sales to Japan increased 42 percent over 2016. In addition to the United States, the 50 percent safeguard tariff also applies to imports from Canada, New Zealand, and other countries that do not have a free trade agreement with Japan.Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue voiced concerns on Friday that Japan’s tariff increase could increase the U.S. overall trade deficit with Japan. He said the potential deficit increase would harm the U.S. bilateral trade relationship with Japan on agricultural products.Source NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 30, 2017 Japan’s Beef Tariff Increase May Spark Trade Warlast_img read more

This event is held in more than 600 communities nationwide, and it is the world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.The walk this year was held Oct. 31.Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia. More than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women. It is the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Alzheimer’s Association.Maggie Slapshak, a senior social work major and the Sigma Kappa philanthropy chair, said when she joined Sigma Kappa she did not have a personal connection to Alzheimer’s, but she knew many of her sorority sisters did. However, that has changed this year for Slapshak.Sigma Kappa philanthropy chair Maggie Slapshak at Sigma Kappa’s philanthropic event, Walk to End Alzheimer’s. (Photo courtesy of Maggie Slapshak)“Recently, my grandpa was diagnosed with another form of dementia,” said Slapshak. “I feel more empowered to keep fundraising, knowing that money is going towards research to help find a cure for him too,” said Slapshak.This year’s walk was very special for Slapshak because she was walking in support of her grandfather.However, because of COVID-19, the walk looked a little different this year. There was not a large in-person gathering like in years past. The walk was virtual, but the Sigma Kappa women still wanted to show their full support, so they hosted their own walk right on TCU’s campus.Slapshak said they raised funds through social media, Venmo, phone calls and philanthropy events. So far, the sorority has raised nearly $82,000, said Stevie Bisch, a junior communication studies and Spanish double major and the chapter president.Bisch said the money raised during the Walk to End Alzheimer’s will go toward finding a cure for the disease and to supporting families who have been affected by the disease. “We were so happy with the turn out,” said Bisch. “And happy we could bring the walk to campus this year!” Caroline Garland World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution center_img COVID-19 safety measures limit routines and practices of TCU spirit groups Linkedin Twitter Linkedin Previous articleHoroscope: November 3, 2020:Next articleNewsNow Election Edition: 12:02 a.m. Caroline Garland RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Caroline Garland Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Equestrian team member inducted into NCHA Youth Hall of Fame Caroline Garland The Greek Village.
