And our relationships with customers are enduring – potentially lasting 50 or 60 years through the savings and retirement phases of their lives. As a leading insurer, with 53m customers, we’re at Davos to join in some of the biggest topics up for discussion: rebuilding trust in financial services and tackling the savings gap.More than any other issue, the question of savings links the big macroeconomic and political debates of our time with the specific and everyday concerns of every individual. It links high politics with culture and psychology; local markets with global economic imbalances. It affects our livelihoods, our political debate and the development of society worldwide.We need a change in attitude towards saving, and for it to be reconnected to the idea of prosperity, both for the individual saver and for those that use their capital to create wealth.With that in mind, Aviva recently convened the Future Prosperity Panel – in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit – bringing together experts in behaviour change, economics and policy to look at ways of bringing about a step-change in attitudes towards savings. We’ll be publishing new thinking on the subject later this year.The image of savings has not been helped by the turmoil that has sapped confidence in markets and financial services. Part of our discussions this week in Davos must focus on reintroducing the concept of prudent saving to customers who may have lost faith in that process.The Future Prosperity panel is chaired by the Economist’s capital markets editor, Philip Coggan, and brings together nine leading thinkers. It will use insights from business, behavioural economics and public policy to consider new approaches to improve prosperity around the world. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The need for a major intervention was clear since my first visit to the house. The walls on the ground floor interrupted the communication between the internal spaces and also their connection with the exterior of the house. On the first floor, the distribution was disconnected and fragmented, whit small and low quality spaces. When studying the original division of the house, I realized that the original living room area was too narrow, the entry hall too generous and the kitchen and dining area too big.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteFrom this point on the idea of a complete inversion of the house came to mind: the kitchen occupies today the old living room, the dining room is where the entry hall was and the living room is where the kitchen and dining use to be. To make such transformation possible, metallic beans were set to support the walls on the first floor, aligned with the ones on the ground floor. The beans are intentionally visible to remind us, in a way, of the history of the old house. Save this picture!© Fran ParenteSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Fran ParenteAnother strong reason for the layout inversion was to create a beautiful entry garden were the service patio was. The entry, which used to be shy and hidden on the narrow side of the house, is made today by this patio between the main block and the outbuilding. A hollow brick wall was set beside the outbuilding’s access stairs, displaying the passage of time through the change of light and shadows, whilst creating a dynamic and elegant background to the living area, especially at night. The external facades of the house were all peeled, exposing the original brick walls, which were left unrepaired. To organize the new openings, hide the old ones and protect the windows from the rain, 11in deep metallic black boxes were created around the windows and the walls between them were also painted black, creating horizontal elements on the facade.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteAs a counterpoint to the rustic facade, the interior of the house receives simple and pure materials, with no interferences. The floor is its own slab polished and varnished. The white walls and ceiling take out any excessive information, guaranteeing a fluid feel of the space and enhancing the connection with the exterior, framed by the new openings. The raw granite on the kitchen top reinforces the same concept. On the first floor the layout was all reviewed, a new bathroom was created to the hall and the master bathroom got bigger. All the windows are larger and bigger now and the original wooden floor was restored. This Project reflects, from the beginning, trust and synergy between clients and architect and the final result shows exactly that.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Fran ParenteProject gallerySee allShow lessCafe OOO / NONE SPACESelected ProjectsQTGC Coffee Shop / ARCHITEKTENSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Fran Parente Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Guelo Nunes Arquitetura Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/946189/maestro-residence-guelo-nunes-arquitetura Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGuelo Nunes ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsPinheirosResidential ArchitectureBrazilPublished on August 25, 2020Cite: “Maestro Residence / Guelo Nunes Arquitetura” [Residência Maestro / Guelo Nunes Arquitetura] 25 Aug 2020.

Quinlivan disappointed over ‘same stale politics’

first_imgNewsLocal NewsQuinlivan disappointed over ‘same stale politics’By Alan Jacques – March 19, 2016 717 by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Maurice Quinlivan TDNEWLY elected Sinn Féin TD for Limerick City Maurice Quinlivan has expressed his disappointment at Fianna Fáil for voting with the outgoing government to prevent a Dáil motion from his party to debate the scrapping of water charges.According to Deputy Quinlivan, Fianna Fáil’s decision to side with the outgoing government in the blocking of this motion, shows that they are wedded to the same stale politics.“Fianna Fáil, in the first meaningful vote on the management of Dáil business, on the first day of the 32nd Dáil, voted with the government to block the Sinn Féin proposal to take a motion on the scrapping of water charges,” Deputy Quinlivan told the Limerick Post.“It was a sharp reminder of where Fianna Fáil stand on the issue of domestic charges. They are not opposed to water charges in principal. During the election campaign, they attempted to sidestep the core issue by labelling Irish Water as a red line issue, while only committing to the suspension of water charges,” he added.Quinlivan also pointed out that the majority of TDs elected to the new Dáil stood on an anti-water charges platform.“Unfortunately Fianna Fáil, despite its election rhetoric, sided with Fine Gael to block a motion which was aimed facilitating a debate on a measure which the Irish people have demanded — the abolition of domestic water charges.“Fianna Fáil have done a great deal of talking about renewal and learning from their mistakes but it is clear that they haven’t changed much from when they agreed to water charges under the first memorandum of understanding with the Troika.”Deputy Quinlivan insists that Fianna Fáil cannot be trusted to deliver the on the demand for the complete scrapping of water charges and the abolition of Irish Water.

Vanjaria while hearing a habeas corpus petition has directed the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to validate the same person’s two Aadhaar cards and to report as to which of the cards is authentic. The Division Bench comprising of Justice Sonia Gokani and Justice N. Vanjaria were considering the petition filed by the uncle of the corpus. The Petitioner/ Uncle of the Corpus had lodged an FIR in2019 for the offences punishable under Sections 363 and 366 of the Indian Penal Code i.e for Kidnapping, abducting or inducing woman to compel her marriage. In this case, in August 2019, the woman’s uncle had filed a habeas corpus petition alleging she was a minor and was abducted in June 2019 by a man from Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh from his lawful custody. She was identified and taken to Ahmedabad a year back, and last week presented before the court. She has flatly declined to see her uncle. However, as per to the testimony offered by the corpus, she has submitted that the Petitioner had attempted “to marry her on his consideration” which she resisted and therefore, she left and now has already married respondent no.5 – Anandkumar Shrinarayansinh Rajput resident of Muzaffarnagar. She has further submitted that her Aadhar Card shows her birth date of the year 1999, whereas, her another Aadhar Card which has been produced by her uncle reflects her birth date 06.05.2002, however, going by either of the same, she is now major and she is no longer desirous to join her paternal uncle but desirous to join the respondent no.5. Noting the fact that an FIR has been lodged, the Bench opined that the verification of both the Aadhar Cards and the scrutiny with regard to the truthfulness of the documents will be very vital in the instant case. The Court asserted that if her birth is in the year 1999 as she claims and that Aadhar Card is genuine, the entire edifice of FIR will collapse. The Justices stated that it is therefore necessary for the Court to know the genuineness of the Aadhar Card possessed by the Corpus and that it is even more important in wake of the allegations made by the corpus against the paternal uncle. In the previous hearing, the Bench stated that the Court also cannot be oblivious of the fact that this petition of habeas corpus is filed not by her father who is resident of Bihar, wherein he resides with other siblings of the corpus. In accordance with the previous order of the court, on instructions, the APP had submitted that UIDAI shall require specific direction and three clear days to verify and to report to this Court. The Court has directed UIDAI to verify these two Aadhar Cards, which shall be forwarded to it by the Anti-Human Trafficking Cell, Ahmedabad Rural, in connection with the FIR being. In light of the events, the Court further directed that the corpus to remain lodged at Nari Sanrakshan Gruha. The high court has posted the matter for further hearing on September 2.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Severe storms, heavy rain expected over the weekend

Lightning driven inner radiation belt energy deposition into the atmosphere: regional and global estimates

first_imgIn this study we examine energetic electron precipitation fluxes driven by lightning, in order to determine the global distribution of energy deposited into the middle atmosphere. Previous studies using lightning-driven precipitation burst rates have estimated losses from the inner radiation belts. In order to confirm the reliability of those rates and the validity of the conclusions drawn from those studies, we have analyzed New Zealand data to test our global understanding of troposphere to magnetosphere coupling. We examine about 10000h of AbsPAL recordings made from 17 April 2003 through to 26 June 2004, and analyze subionospheric very-low frequency (VLF) perturbations observed on transmissions from VLF transmitters in Hawaii (NPM) and western Australia (NWC). These observations are compared with those previously reported from the Antarctic Peninsula. The perturbation rates observed in the New Zealand data are consistent with those predicted from the global distribution of the lightning sources, once the different experimental configurations are taken into account. Using lightning current distributions rather than VLF perturbation observations we revise previous estimates of typical precipitation bursts at L~2.3 to a mean precipitation energy flux of ~1×10-3 ergs cm-2s-1. The precipitation of energetic electrons by these bursts in the range L=1.9-3.5 will lead to a mean rate of energy deposited into the atmosphere of 3×10-4 ergs cm-2min-1, spatially varying from a low of zero above some ocean regions to highs of ~3-6×10-3 ergs cm-2min-1 above North America and its conjugate region.last_img read more
