Finance watchdogs from the 27 member states met in London yesterday to flesh out the first Europe-wide rules to curb bankers’ pay, agreed earlier in the year. The Committee of European Banking Supervisors (CEBS) is expected to publicly announce its decisions today, but insiders told the press yesterday that the panel favoured a prohibition on bonuses containing more than 20 per cent cash. The ban would be much harsher than the European Parliament’s decision in June to cap the cash portion of bonuses at one third. The EU had already specified that 60 per cent of bonus pay must be deferred for at least three years. The restriction would also outstrip the Financial Services Authority’s plans for a 50 per cent upper limit on cash bonuses. The FSA, which has a representative on the CEBS panel, declined to comment last night. “It is time to fundamentally change the bonus culture that contributed to this crisis,” said Arlene McCarthy, a Labour MEP who brokered the basic rules in the European Parliament. “This limit is essential to cutting the incentives for excessive risk taking.”CEBS is understood to favour a cap on bonus payments, linked to a multiple of basic salary that will differ between institutions depending on the financial risks involved. “Whether this would achieve the desired risk-aware behaviour from traders is doubtful, as there would be more pressure to put up salaries so that proposed bonuses fall within acceptable levels,” said Nicholas Stretch, a partner at law firm CMS Cameron McKennaHe added: “However, even implementing a framework for limiting pay creates a precedent and could be followed in due course by all sorts of other limits and caps.”Once CEBS publishes the outcome of yesterday’s meeting, it will spend a month consulting on its proposals. The panel is also thought to have discussed the controversial banking super-regulator, which was approved by EU legislators last month and will have the power to overrule national authorities. The current European Commission president, Jose Manuel Barroso, hopes to introduce the London-based watchdog in January. Meanwhile, the Commission yesterday outlined its vision for a 0.5 per cent tax on all banking pay and profit, called the financial activities tax (FAT), to be used to fund global development projects. The Commission said it would prefer to see a global tax that took a slice of every financial transaction, also known as a Tobin tax, but accepted it would be impractical without global support. Last month, EU finance ministers failed to agree on a similar levy. The plans are likely to face stiff opposition when presented to the G20 at its meeting in November, in what the EU hopes will be the start of a worldwide push for banking levies. The CBI warned last night that any such tax will ultimately be paid for by the customers of banks, and added:?“A financial activities tax within Europe would encourage financial services companies to relocate their operations outside the EU, hurting the economies of member states, and especially the UK owing to the importance of the City as a global financial centre.”The Association for Financial Markets in Europe said: “Tax is not a regulatory tool and it should not be used as a substitute for effective financial regulation.” KCS-content center_img Thursday 7 October 2010 9:47 pm Show Comments ▼ Share More From Our Partners LA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told whatsapplast_img read more

Schools becoming academies at rate of one a day, says Gove

first_img Show Comments ▼ Schools becoming academies at rate of one a day, says Gove Share whatsapp KCS-content Monday 11 October 2010 9:12 pm whatsappcenter_img STATE schools are converting to academies at a rate of one a day, education secretary Michael Gove said yesterday, as the government’s plan to free headteachers from local government control gathers pace. In total, 121 academies have opened since the election, bringing the total number to 324. A further 90 schools will get academy status in the coming months, while 41 failing schools are set to switch status from September 2011. That means there will be at least 455 such schools by the time of the new school year in 11 months. Aides to Gove say the academy programme represents the fastest educational reform in English history. They point out that Lord Baker’s City Technology Programme, which had similar aims, converted just 15 schools over a five-year period. Academies are schools that receive their funding directly from the government, and do not have to answer to their local authority. Their backers say they have improved standards. In 2008-09, academies increased the number of pupils getting five good GCSEs including English and Maths by five per cent, double the national average of 2.5 per cent.

Italy v Scotland: The Preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scotland will have to produce a performance streets ahead of last weekend’s effort in Dublin, where they lost 32-14, if they are to win in Rome. They haven’t beaten Italy there since 2006, when they squeaked home 13-10. Italy come into this match on the back of two heavy losses, 24-3 to Wales last weekend and 42-10 to Ireland in the game before, but both those were away from home and the Italians have always been tough to defeat in Rome – as England discovered when they managed to edge out the hosts 19-15 last month.Fresh lookItaly have a new coach this season, Jaques Brunel, and as he seeks his first win he has made six changes to the squad which lost in Cardiff. Happily for Italy, Leicester Tigers prop Martin Castrogiovanni has recovered from a fractured rib he suffered last month and is restored to the starting line-up, although they had to replace hooker Leonardo Ghiraldini with Fabio Ongaro less than 24 hours before kick-off, thanks to a shoulder injury. Former Gloucester lock Marco Bortolami comes in for Cornelius Van Zyl to earn his 93rd cap and the changes in the backs see Giovambattista Venditti replacing Luke McLean on the right wing while Tommaso Benvenuti starts at centre.Scotland have made just one change to the side which floundered in Dublin, with Nick De Luca returning from injury at outside-centre, allowing Max Evans to switch to the wing in place of Lee Jones, who was hospitalised with concussion following the Ireland game.David Denton has been in terrific formStrong stuffFor all the doom and gloom, Scotland have played some good rugby during this tournament. David Denton has been a great find in the back row, where Ross Rennie has also starred, Stuart Hogg has the fearlessness of youth and Greig Laidlaw has got the back line moving a bit more fluently. As always against Italy, the scrum needs to be good and Richie Gray and co need a massive game in the lineout.VerdictScotland must start well, otherwise the Italian fans will give their side the momentum they need to get on top and the Wooden Spoon wobbles will set in for the visitors. Scotland should have enough class to win, but half the battle will be about mental strength and coolness under pressure. I am going for a Scotland win by eight points, but I am expecting a nail-biter. NOT FOR FEATURED. EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – FEBRUARY 04: Number eight David Denton of Scotland runs with the ball during the RBS Six Nations match between Scotland and England at Murrayfield Stadium on February 4, 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) by Katie Field, Rugby World writerIf Italy can beat Scotland in Rome this weekend, there will doubtless be joyous scenes inside the Stadio Olimpico, but if Scotland triumph I have the feeling their players’ reaction will be more muted – more about relief than ecstasy. There might be fireworks during the match, but Scotland know they have under-performed over the last six weeks and so should not get carried away with their celebrations if they finally achieve their first win of the 2012 RBS Six Nations.Unfulfilled potentialFor the past few years, Scotland have promised much and failed to deliver, to the great frustration of everyone involved with their set-up. There’s been the odd glorious victory, and a number of players of undoubted talent have emerged onto the Test stage in dark blue, but they still haven’t finished above fifth in the Six Nations table since 2006.But this year they are in serious danger of being whitewashed for the first time since 2004 and their lack of victories – on the back of their failure to get out of their pool at the World Cup – has proved to be a catalyst for change at the Scottish Rugby Union. Head coach Andy Robinson has survived calls for his head, so far, but his assistant coaches Graham Steadman and Gregor Townsend are both moving on at the end of the tournament. It is the players who have been making mistakes on the pitch, but the coaches are paying the price and the Scotland team are desperate to win this last game for them, and avoid slumping to a seventh straight loss for the first time since 1998.Unhappy hunting ground SCOTLAND: Stuart Hogg; Max Evans, Nick De Luca, Graeme Morrison, Sean Lamont; Greig Laidlaw, Mike Blair; Allan Jacobsen, Ross Ford (capt), Geoff Cross, Richie Gray, Jim Hamilton, John Barclay, Ross Rennie, David Denton. Reps: Scott Lawson, Euan Murray, Alastair Kellock,  Richie Vernon, Chris Cusiter, Ruaridh Jackson, Jack Cuthbert.Referee: Alain Rolland (Ireland). Will Scotland’s fans be smiling in Rome? ITALY: Andrea Masi; Giovambattista Venditti, Tommaso Benvenuti, Gonzalo Canale, Mirco Bergamasco; Kris Burton, Edoardo Gori; Andrea Lo Cicero, Fabio Ongaro, Martin Castrogiovanni, Quintin Geldenhuys, Marco Bortolami, Alessandro Zanni, Robert Barbieri, Sergio Parisse (capt).

Chesa Gabriel is a small building block within the historic core development in Samedan. Flanked by neighbouring buildings, the inconspicuous volume abuts a square toward the north and has a narrow south-facing façade looking onto a courtyard garden. The typology of stable and farmhouse goes back to the 16th century. After continual conversions of the original building fabric, an additional storey was added to the house in 1920, drastically altering its volume. The house is thus divided into two parts along this temporal seam. One apartment comprises the historical fabric, whose original spatial typology was uncovered and opened up to extend across the depth of the house and former stable. As 20th-century overlay, the attic apartment was given a free-form floor plan within the original walls. As new sculptural element, the balcony monolithically connects with the outer wall. Together with the outside stairs and the garden wall, the new elements are melded with the traces left on the façade from the different eras.Save this picture!© Franz RindlisbacherSave this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSpotlight: Marcel BreuerArchitecture NewsHouse in Oeiras / Pedro Domingos arquitectosSelected Projects Share Architects: Corinna Menn Architekten Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Franz Rindlisbacher+ 18 Share Chesa Gabriel / Corinna Menn ArchitektenSave this projectSaveChesa Gabriel / Corinna Menn Architektenlast_img read more

Three journalists face prison in legal tussle over cartoon

first_img May 18, 2021 Find out more AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa June 5, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three journalists face prison in legal tussle over cartoon May 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders today noted with concern an upsurge in legal proceedings against members of the media as the trial of three journalists on the daily Liberté ended with the state prosecutor making an outrageous call for jail sentences against them.The prosecutor on 1st June called for two months imprisonment for editor, Ali Ouafak, managing editor, Farid Alilat, and cartoonist Ali Dilem for “defamation” under Article 146 of the press law which provides for prison sentences for insulting state bodies.The offending cartoon, published on 29 July 2004, of retired Chief of Staff of the Algerian Army, General Mohamed Lamari, prompted a complaint from the defence ministry to the Sidi M’hammed correctional court in Algiers. The court is set to deliver its verdict on 15 June.“With days to go before sentence in this case, we appeal to the justice system to show restraint and discernment. Since the Algerian authorities always turn a deaf ear to calls to amend the draconian law on the press, we hope that the judges will not serve any political interests by insisting on handing down harsh sentences to the Liberté journalists” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Ali Dilem’s cartoons, which are widely appreciated outside Algeria, should be seen for what they are, journalistic sketches that justify a degree of mockery”, it added.Diliem is already under a suspended prison sentence and could end up behind bars if he was sentenced again. He has had a total of more than 20 legal cases brought against him.Lawyer for Liberté, Khaled Burayu, told Reporters Without Borders that he had urged the court to show tolerance over the cartoons. “We would like Algerian jurisprudence to take a lead from European jurisprudence which provides for moderation. The cartoonist did not act in bad faith,” he added.Two journalists on the daily al-Watan were sentenced to two months in prison for defamation in March this year in a suit brought by the prefect of the eastern region of Jijel. Other Algerian journalists have regularly been brought before the court in a number of similar cases.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtMUSIC Generation Limerick City works across the County, bringing musicians into classrooms and youth groups to lead in learning music, songwriting and jamming. Protobaby’s Tony Monahan is one such tutor with MGLC for Newcastle West, external to his work as producer/ DJ/ songwriting musician. Interestingly, Desmond College in Newcastle West makes MG attendance compulsory for Transition Year students. Tony opens out the scene for us, chatting over a cuppa at Dan Cronin’s lively bar.“I’ve been working with Music Generation for six years now and I work mostly with teens and with teen projects,” explains the Peter Dee Academy teacher.  “MGLC involves travelling to schools and we have Saturday sessions as well where we mentor teenage artists, bands, producers and stuff.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We go from Abbeyfeale in one direction to Kilmallock in another and stretch out across the whole county. I work between all those places. We have about 2,000 kids in the county, another 2,500 in the city.“We go into primary schools as well, right down to young ages, but with the projects I work on, the catchment would be teenage, First Year up to Sixth Year.  In some schools it is optional but Desmond College sends them to us.“TYs are sent to us and they get to sample music production and songwriting and stuff. [The group] is not just made of musical students either, it’s a mix.“If it is our TY project, which is a four week programme, class starts with an introduction and who we the tutors are as musicians. All of us are musicians and all are different. For example, God Knows, his speciality is rap. My speciality is work on guitar-based writing and production.“So I bring in stuff that I do live, bring in some bits and show the class what I do as an artist. And then we spend the next few weeks exploring what they can do. We use technology, we use garage bands, we introduce them to songwriting elements, generally try to get everybody involved.“It’s not exclusive and you don’t have to be able to play,” Tony makes clear.  “That is very much to mission, to get everybody involved and we play with people who can play as well, of course. We try get everyone involved, to show that music is not an elite thing – it’s not a thing that you can’t get into.“I think by the end of the sessions they kind of get that,” he says and quotes the goal,  “‘that we  [the students]  can take ownership over something and create our own piece’. That is the important part. As long as we get that, we are happy.” Limerick Post wondered how the traditional Irish music scene influenced content. There’s a rich strain of Sliabh Luachra in trad DNA locally.“Mmmm. In class, it’s usually music that is popular.
