ECB back’s leaders’ bailout plans

first_img whatsapp alison.lock whatsapp Tags: NULL The European Central Bank has backed last weekend’s deal between eurozone leaders on the region’s new debt rules and bailout fund.European leaders agreed to strengthen the eurozone bailout fund on Saturday, make its loans cheaper and in extreme cases empower it to buy debt direct from euro zone governments.“The ECB welcomes the draft decision,” the central bank said in a legal opinion.“The ECB encourages Member States to approve the draft decision promptly in order for it to enter into force at the date provided in it, which is 1 January 2013.”The plans for the new-look bailout fund are due to be finalised at a two-day summit in Brussels on March 24-25.The European Stability Mechanism (ESM) as it is known will replace the temporary European Financial Stability Mechanism, created when the eurozone debt crisis erupted last year.The ECB maintained its warning over the “moral hazard” risk attached to the bailout fund, however, saying safeguards were needed to limit the threat of countries acting irresponsibly once the permanent euro zone-funded safety net is in place.“Safeguards such as IMF involvement in debt sustainability analysis, programme negotiations and financing, non-concessional terms consistent with IMF practice and regular and strict surveillance” of bailout recipients were vital, it said.

Located five kilometres from the town of Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, our proposal arises from the collaboration between different architects, developers and above all the inhabitants, in a project of designing the homes of thirty-eight families in a community dedicated to agriculture. This group of homes is a clear example of participatory and community architecture, where residents were interviewed to represent their ideal home in a drawing, collecting different points of view on their lifestyle and traditions.Save this picture!© Jaime Navarro SotoSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jaime Navarro SotoFrom above, the starting point of the project is defined, where each home responds to the needs of each family, the climate of the region and the topography of the site. The proposal consists of two volumes with gable roofs, each designed to divide the common areas from the private ones. In its facade, small openings were integrated, allowing optimum ventilation of the interior spaces.Save this picture!© Jaime Navarro SotoThe shape of the roofs refers to the vernacular houses of the region and adapts to the climatic characteristics of the site, where the inclination helps dissipate hot air and avoid a high sensation of humidity. The courtyard generated between the two volumes is understood as an open and semi-private transitional space at the same time, since that is where daily activities are carried out, with a covered area for the kitchen and dining, a bathroom for common use and a free space for planting an orchard or raising animals.Save this picture!© Jaime Navarro SotoThe materials used were chosen for their availability and low costs. Elements whose construction system and characteristics provide seismic resistance and thermal comfort to the homes were used. We chose blocks of prefabricated clay for the walls, with a concrete envelope that was painted white with a mixture of lime and sealants to minimize the solar incidence and the filtration of humidity. Unlike other projects of social interest without community planning, these houses are built on land that is already owned by the users, inserted into the existing rural fabric and giving a sense of belonging to the population.Save this picture!© Jaime Navarro SotoSave this picture!DiagramsSave this picture!© Jaime Navarro SotoProject gallerySee allShow lessCoffeetown Shop / TRPC ArquitetosSelected ProjectsRoberto Cicutto to Take Over as Head of the Venice BiennaleArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Pinotepa Nacional, Oax., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

It then provides user personalised feedback designed to support and motivate individuals to adapt and, if necessary, reduce their consumption patterns. The programme is self-guided, and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counsellor or administrator.According to recent figures 2.48 million in Ireland drink with at least 75% of all alcohol consumed as part of a binge drinking session.  Those aged 18-24 years are most likely to have a harmful drinking pattern.Speaking at the launch of the e-PUB initiative, Gearoid Prendergast, Co-ordinator of the Forum, said: “This is an exciting and innovative project which has brought together the three main 3rd Level Institutions in the City with a view to encouraging participants to examine their individual drinking patterns, their personal and family risk factors and the health and personal consequences of their behaviours”. Speaking on behalf of all three Students Unions Caoimhe Guinnane, LIT Students’ Union Vice-President said that she hoped the e-PUB programme would help students become more aware of their alcohol consumption. “This programme will be a tool to anonymously encourage students to seek help via the information of local services provided if necessary” she said.e-PUB has already been implemented with great success in a number of other Irish 3rd level institutions, including UCC and NUIG.

Virginia teacher fired for referring to transgender student as female

first_imgWRIC(NEW YORK) — A Virginia high school teacher was fired for transgender discrimination on Thursday after he refused to use a student’s preferred pronoun, officials said.Officials at West Point High School, about 40 miles east of Richmond, cited nondiscrimination and anti-harassment policies when it terminated French teacher Peter Vlaming over his refusal to call a female-to-male transgender student by their preferred pronoun, according to a statement.“After thoughtful deliberation, the School Board voted to support the superintendent’s recommendation,” the school’s board wrote in a statement. “The School Board has adopted policies and tonight we upheld these policies.” Board members said it wouldn’t comment further due to “the potential for future litigation,” according to the statement. Vlaming said religious reasons prevented him from referring to the student as male. He agreed to use the student’s new male name, but he tried to avoid using any pronouns — he or him, and she or her — when referring to the student.An online petition in support of Vlaming, titled “Don’t terminate Mr. Vlaming,” acquired more than 1,000 signatures, according to Richmond ABC affiliate WRIC.The petition quotes Vlaming saying: “I won’t use male pronouns with a female student that now identifies as a male though I did agree to use the new masculine name but avoid female pronouns.” “Administration is requiring that I use masculine pronouns in any and every context at school,” Vlaming said. “I was informed that any further instances of using female pronouns would be grounds for termination.”The West Point School Board voted unanimously to terminate Vlaming. Superintendent Laura Abel said she agreed with the decision. “As detailed during the course of the public hearing, Mr. Vlaming was recommended for termination due to insubordination through his repeated refusal to comply with directives made to him by multiple West Point Public Schools administrators,” Abel said in a statement. “As superintendent, it is my responsibility to enforce board policy, and due to Mr. Vlaming’s non-compliance I therefore recommended termination.”The school also held a public hearing on the matter which featured testimony from the school’s principal, Jonathan Hochman, who claimed Vlaming told him that he liked and missed “the female version of the student.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Video surfaces showing California high school students giving Nazi salute

first_imgsmolaw11/iStock(GARDEN GROVE, Calif.) — A group of Southern California high school students sparked outrage on Monday after video surfaced of them giving the Nazi salute while a German World War II-era marching song played in the background.The video shows several male students from Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California, giving the Adolf Hitler salute and laughing as the song plays. At least one student appeared to sing along with the music. Officials with the Garden Grove Unified School District said the video was taken in November 2018, but the school became aware of it in March and took “immediate action,” according to a statement released Monday.The school district said it could not disclose if any of the students had been disciplined as a result of the video, citing federal privacy laws.“Garden Grove Unified School District and Pacifica High School strongly condemn a video recorded last year of some students who engaged in offensive Nazi-related gestures,” the statement said. “It was not brought to the attention of the administration of Pacifica High School until March of 2019, four months following the banquet, at which time school administrators took immediate action and addressed the situation with all students and families involved.”The video was initially “shared within a small group of students on SnapChat” and was taken during an off-campus student athletics banquet in an empty and unsupervised room at the facility, district officials said.The Daily Beast, which first reported on the video, said the students are members of the boys’ water polo team, but ABC News could not confirm those details.The district called it an “unfortunate incident” and said it reached out to community organizers to help facilitate anti-bias training.“In response to this unfortunate incident, district and school administrators have reached out to community organizations to provide support that will continue to ensure an anti-bias learning environment and address issues of hate, bias, and exclusion with all staff and students,” the statement said. “Pacifica High School, along with our other district schools, will be working with students, staff, and parents to continue to address these issues in the fall in collaboration with agencies dedicated to anti-bias education.”“A highly diverse district, Garden Grove Unified School District actively combats bias and bullying, remains focused on fostering an inclusive environment for all stakeholders and is committed to holding students accountable, educating them on the consequences of their choices and the impact these actions have on our schools and community at large,” it added.

Equinor, partners finalise plan for using power from shore for Utsira High area fields

first_img Equinor expects the overall area solution will offset approximately 1.2 million tonnes of CO₂ per year. Photo: courtesy of Equinor ASA. Equinor said that the Johan Sverdrup field will supply the Gina Krog, Ivar Aasen and the Edvard Grieg fields in the Utsira High area of the Norwegian North Sea with power from shore, starting from 2022.The power from shore will come from the Utsira High area power grid.According to Equinor, the area’s licence partners had recently agreed on maximising the utilization of power from shore to the area by allowing partial electrification of the Sleipner field centre.Equinor expects the power from shore solution to reduce emissionsThe Norwegian oil and gas company said that the overall area solution will help in offsetting nearly 1.2 million tonnes of CO₂ per year.Equinor technology, projects and drilling executive vice president Anders Opedal said: “The Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) is leading in producing oil and gas with low greenhouse gas emissions. By enabling partial electrification of Sleipner and tie-in fields, we are making maximum utilization of the area solution for power from shore to the Utsira High to further reduce emissions from the NCS.”The company said that the power from shore solution included in the Johan Sverdrup phase 2 development will offer an additional capacity of 35MW, which can meet the increased demand for electricity from existing or additional fields in the future.Following the recent negotiations by the licence partners, the Sleipner field centre alongside the Gudrun platform and other tie-ins, will be supplied with power from shore to cover parts of their power demand. The solution will also make sure that the Edvard Grieg platform, operated by Lundin Norway, will be fully electrified through power from shore.Lundin Petroleum revealed that the Edvard Grieg power from shore project will see the retirement of the existing gas turbine power generation system on the platform, and installation of electric boilers that will generate process heat. The project will also include installation of a power cable from Johan Sverdrup to the Edvard Grieg platform, said the parent company of Lundin Norway.Lundin Petroleum president and CEO Alex Schneiter said: “Full power from shore for Edvard Grieg, as part of the Utsira High power grid, will not only significantly reduce the carbon emissions from the area to below 1kg of CO2 per barrel but will also allow us to drive further value from the asset base through higher production efficiency, reduced operating costs and less carbon tax.“The CO2 saved from Edvard Grieg alone, will amount to approximately 200,000 tonnes per year from 2022, in addition to the emission savings as a result of power from shore to Johan Sverdrup.” Equinor said that the overall area solution will offset approximately 1.2 million tonnes of CO₂ per yearlast_img read more
