But the airline stressed it was still keen to come to a commercial settlement with the engine maker.Qantas filed a claim in Australia’s Federal Court over the financial and commercial impact of the failure of a Roll-Royce Trent 900 engine on 4 November, which forced an Airbus A380 bound for Sydney to make an emergency landing in Singapore with 466 people on board.“Today’s action allows Qantas to keep all options available to the company to recover losses, as a result of the grounding of the A380 fleet and the operational constraints currently imposed on A380 services,” the airline said.“The airline has today filed a statement of claim … [to] ensure that the company can pursue legal action against Rolls-Royce … if a commercial settlement is not possible.”Qantas said the claim did not include a specific figure as it was still assessing the damage. A firm estimate on the damages may still be months away as Qantas does not yet know when it can return the aircraft to service or when Rolls-Royce can fully solve the issues. But analysts estimated the damages could be between AS$26m (£16.28m) and AS$60m – in addition to the US$70m that one insurance company has predicted it will cost to fix the plane.Earlier in the day the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) told airlines using the Trent 900 engine – including Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa – to conduct further checks after it identified a potential manufacturing defect which it said could lead to oil fire and engine failure.“The problem relates to the potential for misaligned oil pipe counter-boring, which could lead to fatigue cracking, oil leakage and potential engine failure from an oil fire,” the ATSB said.The new checks come just days after Qantas resumed flying two of its A380s on a limited basis. The remaining four planes are still undergoing checks.

But Osborne said his levy was meant to counteract that effect with regard to banks. Barclays paid over £1bn in global corporation tax in 2009, versus pre-tax profits of £4.5bn and a £7bn gain from selling Barclays Global Investors, a transaction taxed separately. BARCLAYS TAX ROWQ. DID BARCLAYS REALLY PAY ONLY ONE PER CENT TAX IN 2009?A. No. The bank’s annual report shows that it in fact paid £1.05bn globally in corporation tax in 2009, an effective tax rate of 23 per cent on pre-tax profit from continuing operations, or nine per cent if you count the bank’s one-off £7bn gain from the disposal of Barclays Global Investors, which is not subject to corporation tax. In total, including national insurance, VAT and payroll tax, the bank and its employees paid over £2bn in UK taxes alone in 2009.Q. SO WHY IS THE BANK’S HEADLINE CORPORATION TAX FIGURE ONLY £113M FOR 2009?A. The rest of the bank’s corporation tax bill was paid in jurisdictions other than the UK. The bank was also able to offset drastic losses suffered during the previous year against its UK corporation tax, under rules introduced in 2002. It also routed some transactions through offshore centres. Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Osborne: banks had to pay Sunday 20 February 2011 11:18 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Romania Operator aims to “solve real business challenges” through Romania startup programme AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Strategy Paddy Power Betfair unveils responsible gambling initiative Paddy Power Betfair has pledged to “solve real business challenges” through the launch of a new responsible gambling initiative in Romania. Developed in partnership with Cluj-based trade event Techsylvania and investment fund Risky Business, ‘Alpha Hub’ is a startup accelerator programme with innovators invited to focus on the challenges of responsible gambling. This will include support during the development of prototype products with the use of technologies such as customer matching, identity verification, data and analytics, online travel, self-service and retail tools.Those that sign up to the scheme will be able to access expertise, partnerships and corporate clients to help strengthen their offering. Rob Smith, head of Alpha Hub at Paddy Power Betfair, said: “The Responsible Gambling Concept is one of our key priorities at Paddy Power Betfair, and this initiative will help us find new ways to identify and protect customers at risk. “Alpha Hub is an excellent opportunity for Paddy Power Betfair to get closer to the tech startup ecosystem, and we’re looking to partner with start-ups that can help us solve real business challenges.” Paddy Power Betfair, which has a team of more than 600 working in its Romania office, plans to launch the initiative on November 20 and follow this up with a two-week period of mentoring and support. Those taking part will present their finished solution at a dedicated event on December 4. Start-ups deemed the most successful in the programme will be eligible for funding to further develop their product, as well as have the opportunity to present their pitch to Paddy Power Betfair. Vlad Ciurcă, co-founder and executive manager of Techsylvania, said: “Accessing and knowledge of corporate clients is a decisive challenge for newly-created companies in Romania. “A successful startup ecosystem requires the involvement of top tech companies, so we are very happy that Paddy Power Betfair chose Cluj from all its global locations to launch Alpha Hub.”The move comes as Paddy Power Betfair was this week handed a fine of £2.2m (€2.5m/$2.9m) for social responsibility and money laundering failures in the UK. The UK Gambling Commission found the firm was failing to protect customers and stop stolen money being gambled. The fine represents the fourth penalty package of more than £1m imposed by the GC this year, following rulings against William Hill, 32Red and Sky Bet.Image: Best Picko 17th October 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Casino & games Email Addresslast_img read more

Karl Loomes | Tuesday, 28th January, 2020 | More on: TLW Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. It’s been a tough few months for investors in Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW), its share price standing at about a quarter of the value it held in November. In December its shares plummeted 70% after it reduced its production outlook and announced the departure of both its CEO and Head of Exploration.January has not seen any improvement, kicking the year off with news that drilling results for an offshore well in South America found less crude than expected, making it unlikely to be commercialised. And mid-month, Tullow was forced to downgrade its crude price assumptions and cut its reserves estimates, leading to a $1.5bn write-down.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In numbers we trustBut Tullow has now begun to suffer a problem far worse for its shares than write-downs and changes to production estimates – falling confidence. Investors are reliant on a company’s financial reports to try to gauge its fair value as an investment. When estimates shift by such huge percentages, it raises questions.At first glance, the major question arising from these kinds of things is “was management overoptimistic?” But of course, it is the nature of estimates, as well as accounting practices, that even when adhering to all standards and realistic beliefs, they rarely prove to be perfect.The fact is, these kinds of changes to numbers are more of a problem because they show us how the ‘sausage’ is made. Oil companies need to make predictions not just for reporting purposes, but also as an entire base for their businesses. Sometimes these predictions will prove wrong.Tullow’s $1.5bn write-down was the result of a $10 a barrel reduction in its long-term price forecast, not because the actually price of crude dropped $10. Even the 70% drop in its shares in December was caused by a reduction in its expected production, not what it was currently producing — a technicality I know, but still…Oil companies are not alone in having to make such forecasts of course, but to a certain extent, one could argue the forecasts themselves will have a more fundamental impact on an oil firm than other industries.How soon we forgetThe good news for investors and oil companies is that human beings soon forget the past, at least selectively. Investors and analysts have no real choice but to use and rely on the financial information that companies provide them with – that’s a key component of how the stock market works (along with technical analysis and market psychology).I think in the case of Tullow Oil, this means that any scepticism investors have over its estimates in recent months, will fade back to a normal level if the company isn’t forced to make any similar downgrades in the future. Taken in this context, Tullow’s current share price could be seen as a bargain.Production estimates may have been cut, for example, but this year’s levels are still expected to sit between 70,000 and 80,000 barrels per day. Likewise, its profit expectations may be 35% lower than in 2018, but this is still a staggering £700m. I haven’t been too optimistic on Tullow’s future generally speaking, but I may be starting to see things in a different light.

In addition to Episcopal News Service’s regular coverage, here’s some of what else went on Oct. 30 (local time), the fourth day of the Oct. 27-Nov. 7 gathering.Members get covenant status updateWhile the ACC is not due to discuss the current status of the Anglican Covenant until Oct. 31, a document handed out today shows that nine provinces have made a final decision on the covenant with one rejecting the covenant, six accepting it as is and two making modifications as part of their acceptance.Those in the so-called Category A that have approved the convent are Ireland, Mexico, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Southern Cone of America, and the West Indies. In addition, according to the document, South East Asia adopted the covenant with an added preamble of its own and the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia has subscribed to the covenant’s first three sections but said it cannot adopt section 4, which outlines a process for resolving disputes.And, also in Category A, is the Scottish Episcopal Church, which has refused to adopt the covenant.The U.S.-based Episcopal Church is one of eight provinces sorted into Category B, which is described as including provinces that have made “partial decisions” about the covenant.At the General Convention in July, the Episcopal Church, via Resolution B005, “declined to take a position” on the covenant. Convention also passed Resolution D008, which pledged that the Episcopal Church would “maintain and reinforce strong links across the world-wide Anglican Communion committing itself to continued participation in the wider councils of the Anglican Communion” and “deepen its involvement with communion ministries and networks.”The other provinces in Category B (and a summary of their actions) are Australia (sent to dioceses for study), Canada (sent to dioceses for study, also seeking theological, ecclesiastical, legal and constitutional implications of action to adopt or not), England (majority of its dioceses voted covenant down, possible consideration of “following motions”), Korea (acknowledged sections 1-3 as “excellent and useful” with decision postponed for further consideration of Section 4), Melanesia (reports having no difficulties with first three sections, consideration deferred until 2014 General Synod), Southern Africa (adopted pending ratification at next synod meeting later this year), and Wales (requested clarification from ACC15 on covenant status and process in light of England’s position).There is one province assigned to Category C — the Episcopal Church in the Philippines. The summary document notes that the Anglican Communion Office “is seeking clarification” of a report in the “Philippine Episcopalian” newsletter that said the province’s Council of Bishops had rejected the covenant.On Oct. 31, the ACC will have “an opportunity to talk about what Anglicans are learning” by way of considering the covenant, according to the Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan, the communion’s director of unity, faith and order.ACC15 includes ecumenical participantsSix ecumenical clerics are participating in the Anglican Consultative Council’s meeting in Auckland. They are the Rev. Robert Gribben of Australia, representing the World Methodist Council; the Rev. Dong-Sung Kim of Geneva, representing the World Council of Churches; Monsignor Mark Langham of Rome, representing the Roman Catholic Church; the Rev. Paul Patitsas of New Zealand, representing the Ecumenical Patriarchate (Orthodox); the Rt. Rev. Lok Oi Peng of Malaysia, representing the Lutheran World Federation; and the Rt. Rev. Dirk Jan Schoon of the Netherlands, representing the Old Catholic Union of the Churches of Utrecht.Resolutions committee namedEpiscopal Church ACC member Josephine Hicks is one of four people on ACC15’s resolutions committee. The other members are Philippa Amable from the Church of the Province of West Africa, John Stuart of the Scottish Episcopal Church and Garth Blake of the Anglican Church of Australia. The ACC today begin to consider resolutions from its networks, members and other communion organizations. For an example of the kinds of resolutions the ACC has passed out of previous meetings, here are the resolutions from the ACC14 meeting in 2009 in Jamaica and here are those from the 13th ACC meeting in 2005. – The Rev.

This project consists of a timber box and concrete block, and is concerned with the idea of using conventional material while building on a scenic site in a rural setting. The clients who were living in Dublin decided to invest in building a house in Donegal. At the time they were not sure if they were going to move permanently to the county, or use the house as holiday accommodation. The brideg asked for a design which was flexible enough to accommodate; (a) a house with 2/3 bedrooms, or (b) two holiday apartments contained under the one roof, or (c) a house with attached studio.Save this picture!Floor PlanIn addition, the brief asked for a quiet private room to which the client could retreat.To allow for optimum flexibility all of the static elements of the brief (ie. Bathroom, kitchen, entrance, stairs, utility and services) are contained within a fixed and rigid block constructed of concrete. This allowed the other living parts of the building (ie. sitting, sleeping ,eating and working) the freedom and flexibility to be positioned, depending on the programmatic requirement of the client. These parts are contained in a shed like timber box which sits parallel to the concrete block.Save this picture!© Ros KavanaghDue to the southern aspect of the site, views and site levels, the larger timber living box is perched on the side of a steep hill. The smaller concrete block containing the fixed elements is built into the side of the hill and is north facing. The cedar clad timber box has a corrugated metal roof, while the roof on the concrete block is natural stone slate. The symbiotic nature of the box and the block and their dependency on each other is given architectural expression by the shuttered board-mark finish to the concrete, and the similarly dimensioned timber boards of the timber box.Save this picture!SectionIn contrast to the flexible and living parts of the building, the retreat requirement is contained on the first floor, which projects into the volume of the timber box, but is under the extended slate roof of the concrete block. The elevated position of this room and its large extent of glazing allow one to engage very intimately with the trees, birds, sky and sea beyond. The stairs to this private part of the house are accessed through a secret sliding door in the entrance hall, thus deterring all but those invited to this part of the building, furthermore accentuating the sacred quality of this retreat room.Save this picture!© Ros KavanaghProject gallerySee allShow lessStudents and Community Members Come Together to Construct Theater in Cape Town TownshipArchitecture NewsDoes London Really Need the Garden Bridge?Architecture News Share Houses Year:  Irelandlast_img read more

Kaleidoscope House, designed by architect Paul Raff, was built for a family of four located in the Chaplin Estates neighbourhood of central Toronto.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-FrameIts striking and strong contemporary exterior is integrated into a leafy, urban setting, with powerful visual and physical connections to its garden space. From the street, it is wrapped in robust but subtle zinc cladding, punctuated by expansive windows, creating the impression of a gently shifted low-relief sculpture. This sense continues in the backyard, as these interlocked structures fluidly connect with smoothly sculpted terraces and planter beds.Save this picture!© Scott NorsworthyKaleidoscope House’s interior is highlighted by an abundance of natural light. In designing the building, Paul Raff took the traditional configuration of a two-storey, centre-loaded house and opened it up, transforming it in to an airy, loft-like space.Save this picture!© Scott NorsworthyThe home’s signature design piece is a remarkable staircase, unifying the house from the basement to the upper floors. Its intricate form is like an origami sculpture, folding its way vertically through the building. The staircase presents one reflective face, the other translucent, designed to catch and reflect light, as well as various views, to create a complex and kinetic three-dimensional spatial play.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-Frame“Living in this house has been an adventure,” says one family member. “We live with so much light, so many surprising reflections. Walking from one floor to the next is like travelling through a kaleidoscope. This sense of excitement is grounded by the calming views of our back and front gardens throughout our home.”Save this picture!Section B-B’At the top of the stairs, residents find a subtly sloped ceiling that opens up to large, south-facing windows, flooding light through the house — making it the rare home that is bathed with natural light in the middle.Save this picture!© Scott Norsworthy“It’s all about light,” says Paul Raff. “The configuration of the spaces, and the strong visual connections with the outdoors, make it feel as though living indoors does not disconnect you, but instead accentuates that you are living beautifully in the natural world.”Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-FrameKaleidoscope House’s main entry opens to a study or sitting room, which flows through to a generous dining room, living room and an open kitchen. Built-in planters breathe life into the home, while creating a distinct separation between the dining and living areas. The ground floor also includes a garage, mudroom and powder room, compactly organized to one side of the level.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe home’s second storey is a split-level, with a bedroom, bathroom and office on the lower level. On the higher level, residents access a master bedroom with an ensuite, a laundry room and a third bedroom, also with an ensuite.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanKaleidoscope House’s multi-purpose basement provides a variety of spaces, including a family media room that is connected to the garden through a large, planted light well that naturally brightens the room. The basement also houses an art studio with ample storage for the family’s extensive art collection, a guest room, a full bath with sauna and a mechanical room.Save this picture!Basement Floor PlanThis high-performance building is also built with sustainability in mind: the building envelope is extremely well insulated and sealed; it includes a super-high efficiency heating, ventilation and air conditioning system; the garage is outfitted for electric car charging; and it is controlled with an elaborate, but user-friendly, smart home automation system.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-FrameThis smart home system future-proofs the house, while providing functions the family can control with a smart phone, including turning lights on and off, motorized roller blinds, home security, and an integrated speaker system throughout the home.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-FrameKaleidoscope House is a contemporary, sophisticated and beautiful home, characterized by the way it harnesses natural light to enliven a variety of dynamic spaces for this active family to enjoy.Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-FrameProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Best Structures of Burning Man 2017Architecture NewsNano House / Punto Arquitectónico + ARCICONSTRUSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Ben Rahn / A-Frame Share Photographs Mechanical Engineers: “COPY” Area:  457 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

He came up with the idea to sell two houses and donated the site, while each unit was built, finished and furnished through voluntary effort.The sale of the semis — one is already gone — will go some way to Build4Life’s target and fund the budget of €4m for a unit for CF patients in Cork and Kerry. The charity is lobbying for the creation of a 10-bed, day unit in CUH, and are also looking for a further 10 “protected beds” in the hospital’s respiratory unit.“Concerned parents have raised a lot of money — they’re close to the €1.5m target as their contribution for the unit. The rest will be funded by the HSE,” Mr Browne said.“Limerick has seen a lot of charity investment by JP McManus and I’m appealing for the biggest and best business people in the region to support our cause. We’ve been waiting 20 years — let’s dig in,” Mr Browne said.The charity’s house left to be sold has 1,440 square feet and is fully furnished to showhouse standard. It is priced at €265,000 through agents Savills HOK and Sherry FitzGerald Stuart. Howard Lake | 29 April 2008 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
