A total of 383 British citizens working in banking and financial services moved to Switzerland in 2010 – marking a 28 per cent increase on 2009, according to official figures from the Swiss Federal Migration Office. Including insurance and consulting industries in the financial sector, 1,379 Britons gained permission to work in Switzerland in 2010 – a 29 per cent increase over the 2009 figure. The increase in the rate of immigration of British bankers exceeds that of other nationalities, according to the Federal Migration Office, suggesting that the 50p top rate of tax on earnings above £150,000, and bonus restrictions are driving workers out of the UK. Matthaeus Den Otter, of the Swiss Funds Association, said: “These figures sound very plausible. There has been a steady influx of skilled workers. We estimate that some 20 to 25 firms of UK hedge funds have set up offices in Switzerland over the past year, and the banks will have sent over some specialised staff as well.” center_img KCS-content whatsapp Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Thursday 17 February 2011 8:52 pmlast_img read more

England’s Ill-Discipline Analysed

first_imgCan’t get to the shops? You can download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet or subscribe to the print edition to get the magazine delivered to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. 12 – Ellis Genge, 69th minute, sealing offHad only been on the pitch a matter of moments, so what appeared to be an exhuasted flop on top of Billy Vunipola, sealing off the ball, is less forgivable. Another easy three for Sheedy.13 – Charlie Ewels, 72nd minute, jumping across the lineA carbon-copy of Itoje’s offence but interferes even more with the clearing Welsh maul.Very frustrating, both for giving Wales an escape from a dangerous position and for showing an inability to learn. This felt like England’s chances slipping away.14 – Dan Robson, 73rd minute, obstruction It’s difficult to say that this one was needless, with every team engaging in the hi-jinks of subtly blocking opposition chasers. The issue here was a complete lack of subtlety.Sheedy added a third penalty and England were over a score behind, a lead Cory Hill would stretch in the final minute.England’s Ill-Discipline Analysed – The Overall VerdictEngland’s discipline wasn’t completely brainless. They could justifiably contest three or four decisions, particularly those in the flurry early on, which would have left their penalty count closer Wales’ nine.Also, they were far more disciplined in the middle 40 of the game, a period in which they outscored Wales by 18-7.However, what will concern England is the needlessness of their infringements. Wales didn’t win a single penalty for holding on, remarkable for a team containing some excellent jacklers – Justin Tipuric, Josh Navidi and Wyn Jones. Instead, England brought the referee’s ire on themselves.Having got the score back to 24-24, it wasn’t Gaüzère’s contentious decisions that lost the game for England, but their misdemeanours in the final quarter. Penalties 11, 12, and 14 were all sloppy and unforced, a gift for a Welsh side who only had to ensure they played in the right areas.Scrums are usually the most penalised set-piece, but one trend which emerged was England’s propensity to transgress at the opposition lineout. They committed four separate offences – two for jumping across the line, one for entering the maul from the side and one for a deliberate knock-on.These were directly responsible for six Welsh points at a crucial stage of the game. This must be something to fix before France. 5 – Owen Farrell, 16th minute, not rolling awayThe penalty before the controversy. Accused of preventing quick ball, Farrell moves his legs clear before Hardy arrives at the breakdown, while his top half is held down by Josh Adams.In Gaüzère’s defence, he is consistent on this, penalising both Adam Beard and Hardy for the same offence in the next five minutes.6 – Mako Vunipola, 21st minute, playing the ball on the floorThere could have been penalties either way here. Vunipola flops on the loose ball moments before Alun Wyn Jones, but the weight of the Welsh captain pins Vunipola away from his team. The prop turns to present the ball, but the delay leads to the whistle.An argument could be made that Jones should have been penalised for not rolling away.7 – Maro Itoje, 28th minute, offsideGets his timing spot-on for a chargedown, moving only after Hardy has picked up the ball, but both England’s guards, Itoje and Jamie George, set their defensive line in front of the back foot.A fair call, although England may argue the ball was already out.8 – Mako Vunipola, 46th minute, offside Elliot Daly knocks on an up-and-under and Vunipola plays the ball from in front of him. A straightforward and avoidable call.England had gone nearly a quarter of the game without being penalised before this. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England players look dejected during their defeat by Wales in Cardiff (Getty Images) 9 – Jonny Hill, 48th minute, side entryOne error leads straight to another. Hill cannot resist trying to slow the ball down by attacking the sole figure of Ken Owens as he bridges over the ball.Doesn’t get his feet square and his arm lazily knocks the ball away, highlighting the indiscretion. Hardy takes a quick tap to put Wales 24-14 up.10 – Tom Curry, 60th minute, side entryThey show this as the archetypal example on refereeing courses.Henry Slade gets isolated and Curry, rushing to beat the jackal of Alun Wyn Jones, is more lateral than a spirit level. Ruins a promising attack.11 – Maro Itoje, 65th minute, jumping across the line Doesn’t’ interfere with the maul but is guilty of jumping into Welsh territory.It’s easy to say in hindsight, but maybe in this last passage England could have trusted their defence, rather than go for the miracle play. Callum Sheedy kicks a good penalty. England’s Ill-Discipline Analysed England gave away a mammoth 14 penalties in their 40-24 loss to Wales in the third round of the Six Nations.Eddie Jones’s side are averaging 13.7 infringements per game in 2021. Stats from Opta show this is the most of any year under the Australian coach and nearly double the 7.1 conceded in 2019 when they went all the way to the World Cup final.Another factor to keep an eye on is how Maro Itoje’s propensity for conceding penalties may affect his chances of receiving the Lions captaincy from Warren Gatland.The second-row was responsible for five in the match and while his work-rate will lead to infringements, the sheer magnitude of indiscretions could mean another candidate gets the nod.Maro Itoje looks to charge down Kieran Hardy (Getty Images)Itoje wasn’t alone on Saturday, with eight other men pinged by referee Pascal Gaüzère. But what were these penalties for? Were they needless, or are England playing on the edge, possibly going unpenalised on another day? Here’s England’s ill-discipline analysed.England’s Ill-Discipline Analysed – Penalty By Penalty 1 – Jonny May, 2nd minute, extra rollPossibly a little harsh. After making ground out wide, May is penalised for an extra roll and not releasing the ball immediately.Some referees might have let the England winger get away with it, while there is a case to be made that tackler George North doesn’t release.2 – Maro Itoje, 3rd minute, deliberate knock-on Straight from Wales’ subsequent kick to touch comes Itoje’s first penalty. You aren’t allowed to slap the ball out of the scrum-half’s hands, and the Saracen is never realistically making an attempt to do anything but.3 – Maro Itoje, 5th minute, side entryPerhaps keen to atone, Itoje gets his timing wrong here, at a maul ten metres out from the England line. Guilty of over-exuberance for the second time in a row, as England give away three penalties in as many completed phases.4 – Maro Itoje, 13th minute, playing the ball on the floorHat-trick! Initially looked legal, but a good spot from Gaüzère. An excellent lineout harry from Itoje, but the referee notices his knees have touched the ground fractionally before he nabs the ball from Kieran Hardy.May well have got away with it if not for his previous indiscretions. Finally, it is interesting that the last three penalties were all given away by Eddie Jones’s ‘finishers’, just as his side were looking to, well, finish strongly.Perhaps his replacements were guilty of trying to solve England’s problems individually, overstepping the mark in a desperate attempt to see their side home. It may not be surprising if the bench changes in their next match. Jacob Whitehead gives his verdict on the 14 penalties Eddie Jones’s side conceded against Waleslast_img read more

Our clients purchased a row house with the intention of doing a modest refurbishment: to renovate the kitchen, opening it to the living room, adding a new bathroom and give the whole a fresher look.Save this picture!© nieve | Productora AudiovisualWhen the works began, however, we detected that the quality of construction was extremely poor and that each level was a patchwork of humble materials.  The floor slab of the main level almost collapsed on top of us- we then had to come to a halt and analyse the situation.  A simple refurbishment had converted into a comprehensive intervention that affected the structure and envelope of the house.Save this picture!Floor PlanUpon these difficult and unforeseen circumstances, the new proposal was based on exploiting the potential of new possibilities.  This was no longer a conventional, two-level home, but a project to be drawn on a blank piece of paper.Save this picture!© nieve | Productora AudiovisualThe young and pregnant Swedish-Spanish couple had a very Nordic vision of what the house should be: open, luminous and functional.  Unlike most families, they did not have the need to isolate the bedroom from the rest of the living spaces, except for the two bathrooms.  They wanted to strengthen the visual relationships between each space and distinguishing their use without compromising versatility.Save this picture!© nieve | Productora AudiovisualThis led us to work from the section since the beginning.  Instead of segregating the spaces between two simple levels, we placed the light staircase cross-wise to the main length of the plot and dislocated the section by misaligning the slabs and generating middle floors that allowed the light to flood in all the way to the back.  This also allowed us to place Juno’s bedroom mid-way up, in a central position to ease the mothers’ supervision from the main room and the studio.Save this picture!© nieve | Productora AudiovisualThe entrance lies on the back of an exterior, long and narrow passageway, so the entire volume is oriented towards a single façade on the back patio, which is the main source of light and allows for the main living area to be lengthened towards the exterior and to dilute the boundary with the interior.  Two floors up, on the studio level, the façade retracts to ease the entry of natural light and to form a gardened terrace for Juno to play on.  Two skylights were opened up allowing sunlight to bathe the levels below through the staircase.Save this picture!SectionOn this house we wanted to reflect the honesty of its material, chasing the upmost comfort without the need of secondary, cladding materials.  The floor slabs are left bare, merely painted, the volume on which the staircase is supported is finished with exposed stucco and the wooden panels meant to be used for shuttering act as a slab for the mezzanine level and are left with their original finishing.  Vestiges of the original house are found on the exposed brick wall on the back of the plot, where the trace of the old, exterior staircase has been left as a testimony of its past.   Save this picture!© nieve | Productora AudiovisualJuno’s House synthetises the evolution of a complex and volatile project.  Unforeseen circumstances became opportunities for the development of a house customized for the lifestyle of the young couple and their daughter, who was merely a year old when the works were finished.Project gallerySee allShow lessZAAD and Challenge Studio Propose New Tower for Iranian City of MashhadUnbuilt ProjectAedas-Designed Project in Shanghai Deemed World’s Best Mixed-Use ProjectArchitecture News Share 2015 2015 “COPY”last_img read more

Haitians challenge Clinton

first_imgKomokoda (the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti) protested in Philadelphia on July 26 against the ruinous role played in Haiti by former President Bill Clinton, Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and their family foundation.Komokoda, a group in the Haitian community that has actively protested the Clintons for years, marched in the Shut Down the DNC protests. The group released a statement, saying: “We will not be counted among those frightened by bigot Trump into silence or into supporting the career criminal Clintons.”The group leafleted the protest with this statement, which continued: “For those pushing the line that Hillary is the ‘lesser evil,’ we tell them that loudmouth Trump has yet to enact policies which have killed our people in Haiti, Honduras, Palestine, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan; which have jailed millions of our black and brown brothers and sisters; which have defunded schools and community building programs to build prisons and turn police departments into military forces.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Colorado’s House Bill 1325 calls for DUI prosecution if a driver’s blood contains 5 nanograms or more of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol per milliliter in whole blood at the time of operating a motorized vehicle. The State of Washington passed a similar law in 2012 which was outlined in Section V of initiative 502 (i-502).“With the passage of Proposition 64 in the State of California, it is imperative that we address the need for a driving under the influence law specific to the use of drugs,” said Barger. “I applaud Assemblyman Lackey’s effort to protect the public from dangerous drugged-drivers.”In addition to the Board of Supervisors, the legislation has received support from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, California Police Chief’s Association, California League of Cities, and the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility.

New Buyers Unafraid to Jump into the Housing Market

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Genworth Mortgage Insurance recently released their inaugural report on first-time homebuyers. Source data dates back to 1994 and analyzes over 20 million records. The survey tracks home sales to first-time homebuyers on a monthly basis, publishes quarterly, and compares the data against national housing market indicators. It is also singles out and identify homebuyers that purchased their home using a VA loan, USDA loan, FHA loan, or with a low downpayment coupled with mortgage insurance instead of the traditional 20 percent downpayment that has historically been required. The report found that this demographic accounted for 424,000 single-family home sales, or 38 percent of the total homes sold in Q1 of 2017. This amount is an 11 percent increase from Q1 2016, and the most since 2005.It also found that first-time homebuyers were the driving force behind the expansion of the housing market between 2014 and 2016, making up 85 percent of total sales and averaging an increase of 260,000 sales per year, two years in a row. During that time period, FHA loans were used 80 percent of the time to secure a mortgage—around 730,000 loans. An estimated 510,000 sales used private mortgage insurance to purchase their home, further reducing the number of homes obtained through a traditional 20 percent downpayment. In order to fully understand and predict the first-time homebuyer market, the report also tracks repeat homebuyers. In 2016, repeat homebuyers accounted for only 63 percent of home sales, the lowest since 2000. This is attributed to lower asset accumulation, preventing people from upgrading their living situation. In a statement released with this new data, Tian Liu, Chief Economist for Genworth Mortgage Insurance, said, “[First-time homebuyers’] impact has already been felt in falling inventory and rising home prices, and we expect them to increasingly drive growth to businesses most exposed to this market segment …  [b]y studying this group more closely, we hope to bring a better understanding about the many low down payment options available to help first-time homebuyers reach homeownership sooner.”The report for the second quarter of 2017 will be released August 22, 2017.
