Shareholders and holders of subordinated bonds in Irish banks will have to bleed in a restructuring process,” he said.Allied Irish Banks has already sold prize assets in Poland and the United States and last week halted the sale of its UK business due to a lack of interest.“We are of the view that any fast-track forced disposal of assets will more than likely have to come at a discount to book-value, even after allowing for government indemnities in relation to future loan losses,” said Ciaran Callaghan, analyst at NCB in Dublin.He said that the government faces a “difficult task” in accelerating the deleveraging of assets and reducing its reliance on European Central Bank funding.Gary McCarthy, analyst at Collins Stewart, said Honohan’s comments could signal something even more dramatic, such as the entire sale of AIB.“An option, albeit one that is difficult to execute, is that one of the banks disappears from the state balance sheet,” he said. “This is an issue not just about capital, it is about the day-to-day funding as well.”Shares in Bank of Ireland tumbled 29 per cent and AIB lost 17 per cent as shareholders face dilution from more capital injections, that could see AIB effectively nationalised.“That the banks will be obliged to raise further capital now looks assured; what remains unclear is the magnitude, timing and source of any required increase,” said Emer Lang, analyst at Davy.Some of the bailout loans could be used to immediately recapitalise the banks, but most of the funds are seen as a backstop in case they need capital and to ease funding strains, officials have said.Honohan said a so-called “bad bank” plan unveiled a year ago, known as NAMA, had not shored up lenders and had been too slow to implement.“It has not had the result we had hoped for,” he said. “Well, we have to have another go. I am not hearing too many people saying change course, you got it completely wrong, they are saying this is pretty big and it is not surprising we have not got through it yet.”Bank of Ireland, set to emerge from the crisis in the strongest position, has a partnership with Britain’s Post Office that has two million customers and also branches in Northern Ireland. Its UK financial services loan book was €52bn (£44.5bn) at the end of March, more than a third of the group total.Britain’s financial regulator sought to reassure investors that the exposure of UK banks to Ireland and other struggling euro zone economies is not a cause for concern.

CHILEAN copper miner Antofagasta reported a surge in nine-month profit on the back of higher output and metals prices, but this fell short of some investors’ expectations.The London-listed group also said it had launched operations at its new Esperanza mine, part of an expansion that is due to lift output by a third next year.Nine-month earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (ebitda) jumped 74 per cent to $1.96bn (£1.24bn), but this was less than expected.“It was a small miss, maybe three to five per cent,” said one analyst who declined to be named, referring to Antofagasta’s ebitda. He noted that losses from commodity derivatives had shaved $52.6m from profits.Output from Esperanza, together with expansion at the company’s flagship Los Pelambres mine, is due to boost annual copper output next year by about a third to 700,000 tonnes.

The commission said the mistakes made by BP, Halliburton and Transocean leading up to the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion in April “reveal such systematic failures in risk management that they place in doubt the safety culture of the entire industry”.The American Petroleum Institute came under heavy fire for what the report said was a conflict of interest between its roles as both safety watchdog and oil industry lobbyist. The 380-page report called for self-regulation similar to that used in the UK and in the nuclear power industry, where companies that fail to meet the safety standards are charged punitive fees for insurance coverage. “Like it or not, oil and gas companies are in this together, and they must adopt rigorous standards through an industry-wide safety institute, or risk losing access to these leases and resulting profits,”said Bill Reilly, the panel’s co-chair. The commission also complained that the statutory $75m cap on compensation payments arising from oil spills is far too low. BP shares rose 2.8 per cent to 500p yesterday amid relief that BP was not blamed exclusively in the report. Blue Phoenix’s chief investment strategist John Licata said: “Only well-capitalised firms will be able to operate in the Gulf under these recommendations.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition Tags: NULL

Located within a private oceanfront community established in the 19th century, this residence is for a young couple looking for a home that would accommodate their growing family and reflect their modern lifestyle. Due to its history, most houses in the neighborhood are more conservative in design and scale than surrounding contemporary oceanfront communities. As a result, the clients desired a modern home that would fit within it’s historic context while embracing the modest scale of the property.Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe design meets these goals by referencing the nearby agrarian vernacular buildings, specifically gabled potato barns embedded in the ground. A unique structural system was employed to create a false ground plane that slopes up from grade to the second floor, masking the scale of the house when viewed from the street. The structure consists of 7” thick glue-laminated wood beams supported by steel girders and columns. This structure eliminates the necessity of traditional wood framing and structural elements and was left exposed as the finished ceiling surface throughout the ground level spaces.Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe unique structure allows for a number of design opportunities: the material transitions seamlessly from inside to outside as a 12’ by 90’ long cantilever, stairs treads are cut from the same material to express its thickness, and cylindrical recesses are carved out of the wood ceiling to transform surface mounted fixtures into unique lighting elements. This method of carving continues throughout the design as casework and custom furniture. Most notably, the Family Room sofa is fabricated out of the massive glue-laminated wood beams and carved out to create side tables and drink rails.Save this picture!© Michael MoranWhile the first floor is dedicated to guests and entertaining, the second floor is reserved for the family. The elevated ground plane that surrounds the family bedrooms is planted with native grasses. Within the plantings, intimate outdoor spaces are carved for small gatherings, including a fire pit and spa with views of the ocean. Sloping portions of the elevated ground plane include paths to connect the family areas with the more public entertaining areas on grade.Save this picture!Floor PlanMaterials traditionally used on agricultural buildings are selected for their low maintenance, durability, and ability to gracefully weather over time. Cedar and weathering steel are executed in nontraditional ways. Alaskan yellow shakes monolithically clad the roof and sidewalls. The shake coursing exposure is four times larger than the typical coursing to reduce the apparent scale of the house. The weathering steel references the corrugated steel often used on barn roofs. Weathering steel self seals to create a durable, low maintenance cladding. The warm, earthy tones of these materials blend with the weathered landscape that surrounds it.Save this picture!© Michael MoranSurrounding contemporary oceanfront communities are becoming known for their overdevelopment and disconnect from their surrounding environment. By referencing the local vernacular and elevating the ground plane, this large house is rooted within the landscape and becomes a cohesive addition to the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Michael MoranProject gallerySee allShow lessSex and Real Estate, Reconsidered: What Was the True Story Behind Mies van der Rohe’…PublicationsPORT Urbanism and R2 Companies Propose Plan to Revitalize Chicago’s Goose IslandArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeBates Masi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEast HamptonJersey CityUnited StatesPublished on July 03, 2015Cite: “Pierson’s Way / Bates Masi Architects” 03 Jul 2015.

Dundee-based Guerilla Tea creates mobile, handheld and online games.Amy Carton, citizen science lead for Cancer Research UK, said: “We’re right at the start of a world-first initiative that will result in a game that we hope hundreds of thousands of people across the globe will want to play over and over again and, at the same time, generate robust scientific data analysis.“Combining complicated cancer research data and gaming technology in this way has never been done before and it’s certainly no mean feat but we’re working with the best scientific and technology brains in the business, we’re ready for the challenge and believe the results will have global impact and speed up research.” Citizen scienceCharities and not-for-profit organisations have been inviting individuals to help them interpret large amounts of data for over 13 years, starting with ‘community computing’ projects like [email protected] to today’s Zooniverse. Cancer scientists generated petabytes of data, but sometimes this can only be analysed effectively by the human eye.GeneGame is Cancer Research’s second citizen science project. It launched Cell Slider in October 2012 to encourage the public to classify archived breast cancer samples. Over 200,000 people have already visited the project’s site and made more than 1.6 million classifications.Dr Joanna Reynolds, director of science information, Cancer Research UK, said: “In just three months, citizen scientists had analysed data that would typically take our scientists 18 months to do and early indications of the accuracy are promising. With GeneGame we are being bolder, braver and bigger and we hope that by the end of the year we’ll have a game that not only is fun to play but will play a crucial role in developing new cancer cures sooner – ultimately saving lives.”Photo: cancer cell and lymphocytes by Juan Gaertner on Shutterstock.com 59 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 23 July 2013 | News ‘GeneGame’ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The citizen science game, currently referred to as ‘GeneGame’, will be designed for anyone with a smartphone to spend five minutes playing, which will involve analysing Cancer Research UK’s gene data.

Members of Youth Empowered in the Struggle (YES) fighttakeover of Milwaukee schools by Wall Street.The “Opportunity Schools Partnership Program” was introduced to the Wisconsin Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee on May 19. With only an hour for committee members to read the plan, “debate” began at about 8:15 p.m., with an affirmative vote at 2 a.m. No public comment was allowed at the hearing. The plan has been sent to the Senate and Assembly, with the goal of being included in the 2015-17 state budget.The Milwaukee Teacher Education Association said: “This motion is one of the most extreme collections of anti-public education legislation the state has seen. It includes the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) takeover plan, special needs vouchers, and statewide expansion of vouchers. … Legislators intensified their war against Wisconsin’s public schools …, using the budget to avoid a democratic process, dismantle public education and attack some of the most vulnerable students in our state.” (mtea.weac.org, May 20)Modeled after similar austerity legislation and policies in cities with large communities of color, such as Detroit and Philadelphia, the Milwaukee plan would take over so-called “failing” schools in the Milwaukee Public School system and hand them over to capitalist corporations to operate.The OSPP would be run by a commissioner to be appointed by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, a leading capitalist in the Wisconsin Democratic Party. The commissioner would have parallel authority with the elected MPS School Board and would be accountable only to the county executive.Racist attack on public educationThe schools listed as potential targets — 55 public schools — have predominantly Black or Latino/a student populations and are in parts of the city devastated by decades of deindustrialization and lack of social-safety nets. All MPS workers at schools taken over would be fired and forced to reapply for their jobs. They would have to waive their right to be represented by a union to be considered for rehire. (fightbacknews.org, May 20)Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed 2015-17 budget includes numerous other attacks on public education, including the proposed elimination of Chapter 220, the only educational program in Milwaukee designed to reduce racial segregation in public schools and improve equal opportunity for oppressed students.This latest attack on MPS is part of a decades’ long war by Wall Street on public education in Milwaukee targeted specifically at Black and Brown communities and unions. This industrial city was the first major urban center in the United States used as a laboratory for “school choice.” In 1990 Milwaukee became the first city with a “voucher” program for parents to use toward tuition at a private or religious school. The top Wisconsin court gave its OK to this program.Since their implementation in Milwaukee, “voucher” schools have taken more than $1 billion in taxpayer money away from public schools, with minimal public accountability. The defunding of public schools has resulted in larger class sizes, less individual attention to students and less access to art, music, libraries and physical education in the city’s public schools.Fightback emergingMilwaukee Public School system has suffered the severest budget cuts in its history since Wall Street-servant Walker became governor in 2010. Not only has it lost funding of hundreds of millions of dollars, it’s been forced to lay off hundreds of teachers and close several schools.Higher education in Wisconsin has suffered the most cuts in its history during this period as well.A mass people’s fightback is emerging, centered in Milwaukee, that is demanding the OSPP be taken out of the state budget. The MTEA, Wisconsin Jobs Now and student groups like Youth Empowered in the Struggle, all members of the Schools and Communities United coalition, are leading the fight against the latest austerity proposal.A school defense rally will take place May 27 at Auer Avenue Elementary School. The event is called “Auer Community Is Not Your Colony.” Participants, including parents, students, community and union members, plan to physically surround the school in solidarity with each other.In a statement about the action, organizers say this effort “will be the first in a series of citywide actions to raise public awareness of what our schools and communities are facing, and how all of our communities can join in the fight to keep democratic control of our schools. OUR SCHOOLS, OUR SOLUTIONS! Join us!” (stopmpstakeover.com)YES is supporting the May 27 Auer action and mobilizing for it citywide. It statement reads: “Wealthy right-wing politicians want to take away our public schools. Join us to defend Auer Avenue School (24th Street, just north of Burleigh). We will fight the takeover school by school!” (YESstudents on Facebook)For more information, visit schoolsandcommunitiesunited.org and #DontMessWithMPS, #NoMPSTakeover.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
