World Bank President Robert Zoellick yesterday called for policy actions to quell growing tensions over currencies and to shore up confidence in the sputtering global economic recovery.Zoellick said slow growth in advanced economies and the threat of asset bubbles in booming emerging market countries present growing risks that global finance officials, who gather in Washington later this week, need to tackle.The uneven pattern of world growth has raised concerns about tit-for-tat policy responses as nations seek to protect their trade competitiveness.Japan intervened in foreign exchange markets for the first time in six years on 15 September to drive down the yen, as several emerging markets have done with their currencies, prompting Brazil last week to warn of a “currency war.”“Money is chasing yield. It can’t find those yields in developed economies and this is not only pushing up currency values in developing countries… [but] also pushing up prices in assets with the risk of bubbles in property and some commodities,” said Zoellick ahead of meetings this week of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.The Institute of International Finance (IIF), which represents over 420 member banks in more than 70 countries, said emerging market nations were concerned their currencies could become “unduly strong” given the low interest rate environment was expected to continue in developed economies for longer than initially thought. “The near-term danger, however, is that this upward pressure escalates and market adjustment becomes disorderly, causing renewed strains in global financial markets and, possibly, igniting policy tensions and, possibly, protectionist measures between key economies, most obviously, the US and China,” the IIF added.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance IBIA calls for new global standards for data collection 21st May 2020 | By contenteditor The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has called on all parties in the sports betting data supply chain to develop a set of global best practice standards for all providers. Email Address The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has called on all parties in the sports betting data supply chain to develop a set of global best practice standards for all providers.The integrity watchdog argued this cross-provider coordination would help protect the integrity of sport, as well as ensure high standards of data, and in turn betting products generated through use of that data.“Upholding the reliability and credibility of sporting event data is of paramount importance for my members and the challenges posed by the pandemic have further highlighted the necessity for robust data chains,” IBIA chief executive Khalid Ali (pictured) explained.“There is a clear benefit for everyone involved in the data supply chain in ensuring that such data is a product of high levels of accuracy and transparency.”Ali said the IBIA and its members had been considering the issue internally for some time, but believed now was the time to go a step further by having a proper industry-wide debate.“To that end, IBIA is asking all stakeholders, notably data providers, to proactively engage with the association and its members to develop and implement agreed best practice standards around the sale, collation and distribution of sports data for betting,” he added.Data provider Stats Perform, an affiliate member of IBIA, said it fully supported and commended the association for leading the call for uniform standards.“As a truly global sports entity, with considerable business across the media and professional sports sectors as well as betting, trust in sport is paramount to us, as well as being vital for all our customers and the sports industry itself,” the supplier’s chief betting officer Andrew Ashenden said. “Over many years we have invested in an unparalleled integrity and quality control infrastructure and that investment continues to be at the heart of our operations.“Data integrity issues wherever they originate are harmful for the industry and we are looking forward to contributing our expertise via the IBIA and its members on the development of global best practice,” he contineud. “We have always maintained that collaboration in this space across sporting federations, governing bodies, third party integrity providers, regulators, operators and data suppliers is vital.”Stats Perform’s head of integrity Jake Marsh added that the business had the strongest quality assurance and integrity processes in place across its data supply chain. “We look forward to working with all their members and other stakeholders on best practices in order to help protect the integrity of sport and betting.”IBIA’s calls come days after it issued a joint warning, alongside the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), of an increased risk of manipulation in the sport, as tournaments and matches resume following the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.It therefore urged all operators, both among its members and across the wider industry, and data providers to ensure match-fixing attempts could be quickly identified and prevented.

Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Hopkinsville, KY By Egan MillardPosted May 18, 2020 Tags Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Washington, DC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Liturgy & Music [Episcopal News Service] With churches unable to meet in person for services and other gatherings, the Zoom videoconferencing app has been a lifeline. And just as many congregations had finally gotten the hang of it, it went down in the U.S. for several hours at the worst possible time: Sunday morning.The outage, which has since been resolved, appeared to hit users on the East Coast particularly hard. Many were unable to host or join livestreams, while some could see the other participants but not hear them.Although many churches stream their services on Facebook Live or YouTube instead of (or in addition to) Zoom, it is commonly used for virtual coffee hours, Sunday school and Bible studies because of its interactive capabilities. Some Episcopal churches improvised based on the level of functionality they had, holding audio-only coffee hours or call-in services, or catching up in the chat section of Facebook Live instead of Zoom.My virtual pulpit for the morning…just in time for a worldwide Zoom outage? pic.twitter.com/BZ6QTuFLQc— Rev. Jason Wells STAY HOME FOR GOD’S SAKE (@revjawells) May 17, 2020“This was my first Sunday leading online worship via Zoom as a supply priest for members of three congregations who have not been doing any worship together since the church buildings closed,” said the Rev. Sharon Hausman, a priest in the Diocese of Newark, via email. “The worship leaders and I even did a test run yesterday, so everything would go smoothly. What is it they say about the best-laid plans?”While some congregations were forced to give up and try again next Sunday, Hausman’s service went on against all odds – in a truncated, stripped-down form.“Amazingly, we had about 23 people, including a visitor from Florida, participate in what amounted to a conference-call worship via Zoom, once some of us found out we could get audio by dialing in by phone,” Hausman told Episcopal News Service. “On the plus side, we already have two unused recorded hymns and an anthem we can use for next Sunday!”Sometimes the Holy Spirit reminds us that we’re not in control: this week it was through Zoom not working! We’re sorry if we missed you in worship, and we hope that you will enjoy the wonderful benediction from our choir! #ecct #choir #episcopal #ZoomDown https://t.co/phDvsXxwvo— St. Stephen’s (@saintsteves) May 17, 2020The last-minute glitch had diocesan workers once again jumping into their new roles as tech troubleshooters, trying to warn parish leaders of the outage and give them alternatives to Zoom. Some churches were able to redirect parishioners to Facebook or their own websites, while others abandoned live worship and recorded services that parishioners could watch later.So you missed church? So did we (because zoom) but find it here https://t.co/nnPDDGqwUf— Memorial Episcopal (@MemorialBH) May 17, 2020“How the world has changed,” said David Dreisbach, director of communications for the Diocese of Southern Ohio. “Six months ago, none of us could have comprehended that we’d be emailing about Zoom problems on a Sunday morning.

Step Up on 5th is a bright new spot in downtown Santa Monica. A 2010 AIA Honor Award winner, the building provides a home, support services, and rehabilitation for the homeless and mentally disabled population. The new structure provides 46 studio apartments of permanent affordable housing. The project also includes ground level commercial/retail space and subterranean parking.Save this picture!More after the break. Save this picture!A striking yet light-hearted exterior makes the new building a welcome landmark in downtown Santa Monica. Custom water jet-anodized aluminum panels on the main façade creates a dramatic screen that sparkles in the sun and glows at night, while also acting as sun protection and privacy screens. The material reappears as a strategic arrangement of screens on east and south-facing walls, lending a subtle rhythm to the exterior circulation walkways and stairs. South-facing walls filter direct sunlight with asymmetrical horizontal openings that lend unexpected visual depth while creating a sense of security for the emotionally sensitive occupants. Enhancing the structure’s geometric texture, the irregular array of openings variably extrudes from the building’s surface.Save this picture!The small-scale elements on the façade enhance the existing streetscape and promote a lively pedestrian environment. By visually breaking up the façade into smaller articulated elements, the building appears to move with the passing cars and people. Save this picture!At the second level above the retail space two private courtyards provide residents with a secure and welcoming surrounding while connecting directly to 5th street and downtown Santa Monica via a secured stairway integrated into the building storefront at street level. Community rooms are located on every other floor of the project overlooking the private courtyards protected from the street. These community rooms along with the private courtyards serve as the principal social spaces for the tenants of the building.Save this picture!Step Up on 5th distinguishes itself from most conventionally developed projects in that it incorporates energy efficient measures that exceed standard practice, optimize building performance, and ensure reduced energy use during all phases of construction and occupancy. The planning and design of Step Up on 5th emerged from close consideration and employment of passive design strategies. These strategies include: locating and orienting the building to control solar cooling loads; shaping and orienting the building for exposure to prevailing winds; shaping the building to induce buoyancy for natural ventilation; designing windows to maximize day lighting; shading south facing windows and minimizing west-facing glazing; designing windows to maximize natural ventilation; utilizing low flow fixtures and storm water management; shaping and planning the interior to enhance daylight and natural air flow distribution. These passive strategies alone make this building 50% more efficient than a conventionally designed structure. Save this picture!The building is loaded with energy-saving and environmentally benign or “sustainable” devices. Materials conservation and recycling were employed during construction by requiring waste to be hauled to a transfer station for recycling. The overall project achieved a 71% recycling rate. Specifying carpet, insulation and concrete with a recycled content, and utilizing all-natural linoleum flooring also emphasized resource conservation. The project uses compact fluorescent lighting throughout the building and double-pane windows that have a low-E coating. Each apartment is equipped with water-saving low flow toilets and a high-efficiency hydronic system for heat. While California has the most stringent energy efficient requirements in the United States, Step Up incorporates numerous sustainable features that exceeded state mandated Title 24 energy measures by 26%. Although not submitted at this time, the project has followed the LEED certification process and would receive 39 points making it equivalent to LEED “Gold”. Save this picture!Step Up on Fifth was awarded the following: AIA California Council Design Merit Award, 2010, AIA National Institute Honor Award for Architecture, 2010 AIA National Housing Award, 2010 Residential Architect Merit Award, 2010 AIA Honor Award, 2010 LA Design Awards: Merit: Multifamily, 2009 Westside Urban Forum Prize.Save this picture!SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessWinners of the 2010 Aga Kahn Award for ArchitectureArticlesLake House in Schrampe / Pfeiffer ArchitektenArticlesProject locationAddress:1548 5th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

This hybrid barn house on a narrow piece of land dialogues in harmony and in contrast with the traditional surroundings. Once upon a time in Audierne lived a local fisherman nicknamed “Sentinel”. He observed the sea from the hills towering the village harbor. One century later, his descendants bought a piece of land in Audierne, up on a hill and facing the same ocean horizon their ancestor used to gaze at. The project is located on a narrow and irregular piece of land, at the edge of a block and at the entrance of the village. Considering the peculiarity of this location, a traditional compact house would have had a strong impact on the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Chantal Andro + Aurelien ChenTherefore, the architect chose to split the house into three volumes, each one being parallel to one edge of the plot of land. The main house, a barn house-like wooden structure, is situated below while two lower blocks occupy the upper part of the land. The three-slope roof and the different levels optimize spaces while minimizing the size of the building, providing a view of the ocean with a minimal impact on the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Chantal Andro + Aurelien ChenSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!More than being a mere reinterpretation of the local traditional barn house, this project is an answer to a very particular and irregular piece of land, and to a very specific urban tissue with a wide range of architectural typologies. The project is dynamic, and its perspectives are consistently changing. Seen from its Southside, the house echoes with the traditional barn houses, while from the Northside, it shows very contemporary lines. The different materials composing the house are echoing with the diversity of the surrounding colors and elements: western red cedar cladding, mixed slate/zinc roofing, white wall coating, and black stained wood.Save this picture!© Chantal Andro + Aurelien ChenThe functional layout is based on bioclimatic design principles and site conditions: the car park on Northside creates an acoustic and climatic screen, the main spaces face the ocean towards the South, while the bedrooms face the East. A skylight is located in the middle of the house bringing natural light to most of the space, and steel mesh along the stairs creates transparency that keeps changing together with the motion of the clouds above. This very specific steel mesh is used by local fishermen to catch local seashells. The wood structure – visible from the inside – was digitally prefabricated in order to get complete control over the construction process.Project gallerySee allShow lessHG – Gerontological Home / R+B Diseño ExperimentalSelected ProjectsSneaker District Amsterdam / Barde + vanVolttSelected Projects Share Photographs: Chantal Andro + Aurelien Chen Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Area: 170 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lead Architect: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959607/sentinel-house-aurelien-chen Clipboard Architects: Aurelien Chen Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959607/sentinel-house-aurelien-chen Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAurelien ChenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookAudierneFrancePublished on April 10, 2021Cite: “Sentinel House / Aurelien Chen” 10 Apr 2021.

The guide “sets out the benefits and principles of providing grant funding for the voluntary and community (VCS) sector and suggests some Practical Steps commissioners can take to use grants in the most effective way to support local priorities”.It has been published to help commissioners work with local and national voluntary organisations in responding to the needs of patients and the public and to tackling health inequalities.Voluntary organisation in this case includes all charities and community interest groups, whether or not they pay staff or charge for services.It was the Health and Social Care Act 2012 which Clinical Commissioning Groups the power to use grant funding to support voluntary and community organisations’ activities at national, regional and local levels, where they could provide services similar to or complementing those of the Groups.The 18-page free download begins with a case study of how NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group invested £360,000 into local organisations’ projects, reaching an estimated 22,500 people.Grant not contractTo be clear, this guide focuses on grants, not the purchase of services from charities through a NHS Standard Contract. “A grant agreement may not impose an obligation to provide services, but can require the grantee to use the money towards a particular project or service and set out other terms on which the grant is made”.Core principles and adviceThe guide sets out the core principles of grants from NHS England, followed by advice on the practical steps of selecting and making grants. This includes suggestions on how to develop an application form, in the absence of any standard form.The guide is designed for NHS England Clinical Commissioning Groups, but should still be of use to fundraisers at relevant health and social care charities. For example it lists the NAVCA directory of support and development organisations as a useful resource for Groups to find relevant organisations.A bite size guide to Grants for the Voluntary Sector is available at no charge as an interactive PDF.

Close to 100 people, mostly youth, gathered for a vigil in Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta on March 6 to call for justice for the three murdered youth, all Sudanese refugees, shot multiple times in Fort Wayne, Ind. While local police have dismissed the killings as a “hate crime,” speakers at the vigil made clear the connection to the vicious anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim rhetoric that dominates political speech in the U.S. The crowd was urged to realize the message of Black Lives Matter in their everyday activities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
