High on his list was investment in green infrastructure, including ear-marking £1bn for a “green investment bank”.He also set aside £1bn for a carbon capture project and £200m for offshore wind technology.Osborne said: “When money is short we should ruthlessly prioritise those areas of public spending which are most likely to support economic growth, including investments in our transport and green energy infrastructure, our science base and the skills and education of citizens.”Richard Lambert, director-general of the CBI, said maintaining capital expenditure will help to promote economic growth. Cultural developments will benefit, with extensions to both the Tate Gallery and British Museum saved by the additional funds. center_img KCS-content More From Our Partners Biden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Wednesday 20 October 2010 8:24 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The result far outstripped analyst forecasts of $2.90 per share and show BlackRock consolidating its performance after a year in which first-quarter results missed expectations and the second quarter was dogged by fears over low fee income and outflows of capital.BlackRock, which bought Barclays’ US investment arm for $15bn in 2009, has $3.6 trillion of assets under management despite another huge capital outflow in the past quarter.Net fund inflow was $23.9bn excluding $38.7bn in withdrawals from clients that had held accounts with both Barclays and BlackRock before the merger and did not want all their funds to stay with one firm. “Away from merger-related outflows, new business was robust,” chief executive Laurence Fink said. “We believe merger-related outflows are largely behind us.” BlackRock shares closed up 2.29 per cent at $198.01. whatsapp KCS-content Tuesday 25 January 2011 9:42 pm Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Among its many types, residential architecture is extremely limited when it comes to experimentation. Who would want to live like a guinea pig in highly private space in which his or her life unfolds? In order to weigh up the singularity of the architecture of a residential building, the search for relationships between spaces could be a better approach than searching for ‘newness’.Save this picture!First Floor PlanRelationships between the building’s layout and the land upon which it stands, and the way in which it fits in among the buildings around it are to be interrogated. The Guesthouse Rivendell sits on a plot that measures 3300㎡, a size rather large for a house. The architect has been careful, therefore, to position the structures so as to avoid making the house look too small and the leaving the rest of the site looking like a desert.Save this picture!© Joon Hwan YoonPerhaps the way its body spreads out like limbs in every direction, too, is a way of dividing up the large plot and making the outer surface of the building as large as possible. Sequence is an important concept when it comes to this building. Unlike that of conventional house, this building’s upper and lower parts are divided and its long lines of flow extend like unraveling spools of thread.Save this picture!© Joon Hwan YoonThe view placed over this building’s sequence, then, is interrupted and divided. It is difficult to rate it as a new principle in architecture or an experimental home. When you go inside the house and look outwards, however, you will have a sense of how the one thing in the world that we never tire of seeing is the exotic effect of nature and the architecture that mediates it: anew perception of nature as its familiarity breaks up like a glass bead; witnessing nature as it changes at every moment and in every place.Project gallerySee allShow lessDesigning Invisible Architecture: Bird Hides by BiotopeArticlesTicollage City / Costa Rica Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2014Architecture News Share Houses JEHYO Construction & Engineering CopyHouses•Gapyeong-gun, South Korea Construction: Architects: Heesoo Kwak and IDMM Architects Area Area of this architecture project Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeIDMM ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGapyeong-gunHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on July 23, 2014Cite: “Guest House Rivendell / IDMM Architects” 23 Jul 2014.

Thousands demand “Justice for Eric Garner!”

first_imgWW photo: Johnnie StevensStaten Island, N.Y. — At least 15,000 people demonstrated in Staten Island, N.Y., on Aug. 23,  demanding justice for Eric Garner, an African American, slain on July 17 by New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo.   A video of Pantaleo applying a chokehold to Garner, killing him, has been widely disseminated, and been seen by millions of people worldwide.The police execution of Garner, a 43-year-old loving father of six children, enraged New Yorkers. His last words, “I can’t breathe,” were uttered repeatedly,  Despite his pleas, racist cops let Garner die.Even though the city’s medical examiner ruled Garner’s death a homicide, caused by the chokehold and chest compression, none of the cops responsible for his death have been charged.Solidarity against racist terrorThe National Action Network and its leader, the Rev. Al Sharpton, initiated the Aug. 23 protest under the theme of “We will not go back.  March for Justice!”  It was held on the 25th anniversary of the lynching of 16-year-old African-American Yusef Hawkins, who was shot to death by racist youth in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.Demonstrators came from all over New York City and New Jersey. They boarded buses in the early morning from Harlem, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Westchester. The Arab American Association of New York in Bay Ridge filled a bus. Service Employees Local 1199, the hospital workers’ union, provided most of the buses. Hundreds of people took the Staten Island Ferry, chanting all the way.Those who attended this spirited march expressed solidarity with the Black community of Ferguson, Mo., and the family of Michael Brown, an African-American youth who was gunned down in that city on Aug. 9 by police officer Darren Wilson.  Signs read, “We stand with Ferguson.”  A popular chant was “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!” which has been a prominent slogan in Ferguson.Protesters gathered outside Tompkinsville Park in northeast Staten Island at the site where Garner was killed and then marched to the office of the Richmond County district attorney, Daniel Donovan, calling for justice all the way.Chanting, “No Justice!  No Peace!” the demonstrators demanded that the cops responsible be charged and held accountable for Garner’s death — and put in prison.  They then marched to the 120th Precinct in St. George, where the rally was held.Speakers at the rally included Esaw Garner, Eric Garner’s spouse, who spoke movingly, as did several of their children.  Gwen Carr, Eric Garner’s mother; Ellisha Flagg, his sister; and his nephew also spoke.Family members of other Black youth who’d been killed by police also spoke.   Constance Malcolm told the demonstrators, “This is my family now,” pointing to them.Malcolm’s 18-year-old son, Ramarley Graham, was shot to death by cop Richard Haste in Graham’s Bronx home in 2012. A judge dropped the case against Haste, citing prosecutorial errors, and then the grand jury refused to re-indict him.Kadiatou Diallo, the mother of Amadou Diallo, spoke.  In 1999, racist police shot 41 times at her 22-year-old unarmed son, a Guinean immigrant.  Since then, police officers have killed more than 200 people, with Garner being the latest victim of racist police violence.Rally speakers raised the police killing via chokehold of Anthony Baez in the Bronx 20 years ago.  Others at the podium told the crowd of other young Black and Latino/a victims of racist police brutality.Remember James Powell and Clifford Glover!Former New York Gov. David Paterson reminded marchers that July 16 was the 50th anniversary of the killing of 15-year-old African-American James Powell by police Lt. Thomas Gilligan.  That heinous act sparked the 1964 rebellion in the New York neighborhoods of Harlem and Bedford-Stuyvesant, and then in other cities.Paterson pointed to the 1973 killing by police officer Thomas Shea of 10-year-old Clifford Glover, a fourth-grader who weighed 90 pounds. After the fatal shots were fired, a cop was heard on a walkie-talkie saying “Die, you little bastard.” Shea was acquitted by a nearly all-white jury.Paterson also told of the racist violence experienced by his father, the late Basil Paterson, a former New York secretary of state and New York City’s first Black deputy mayor.  He said, “In 1942 my father was pistol-whipped in front of all his neighbors for no reason.”Energetically, the Rev. Herbert Daughtry of the House of the Lord Church in Brooklyn, and a longtime anti-racist leader, shouted to the crowd: “Forward ever! Backward never!”The crowd cheered in response to a shoutout from the podium recognizing Ramsey Orta, who took the video of Garner’s killing.Rep. José E. Serrano spoke to protesters in Spanish and English. “We are one,” he emphasized, referring to the historic Black and Latino/a community alliance that built Local 1199 and fought racism for decades.Labor leaders addressed the crowd, including United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew.  George Gresham, president of  Local 1199, spoke on behalf of the union’s more than 100,000 members. Among them is Constance Malcolm.The presence of Gresham, Mulgrew and other union leaders enraged police organizations, none of which deserve to be called “unions,” since the cops’ pre-eminent role in capitalist society is to act as armed defenders of the interests of the bosses and against the interests of workers and oppressed people.During the march, many people complimented and photographed the six-foot-long sign carried by the People’s Power Assembly delegation that read: “Jobs with a living wage, not racist police murder!”Thousands of International Action Center fliers which linked the police murders in Staten Island and Ferguson, Mo., to the genocidal war against the people of Gaza were distributed.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Boundary layer halogens in coastal Antarctica

first_imgHalogens influence the oxidizing capacity of Earth’s troposphere, and iodine oxides form ultrafine aerosols, which may have an impact on climate. We report year-round measurements of boundary layer iodine oxide and bromine oxide at the near-coastal site of Halley Station, Antarctica. Surprisingly, both species are present throughout the sunlit period and exhibit similar seasonal cycles and concentrations. The springtime peak of iodine oxide ( 20 parts per trillion) is the highest concentration recorded anywhere in the atmosphere. These levels of halogens cause substantial ozone depletion, as well as the rapid oxidation of dimethyl sulfide and mercury in the Antarctic boundary layer.last_img

Racial bias investigation launched after high school wrestler forced to cut off dreadlocks

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock(BUENA, N.J.) — Accusations of racial bias are being made after a high school wrestler in New Jersey was forced by a referee to cut off his dreadlocks or forfeit his match.Buena Regional High School wrestler Andrew Johnson, who is black, was told he could not compete with long hair at a meet in Atlantic County on Wednesday. Johnson was wearing his usual headgear and covering, but the referee said it was not in compliance with rules by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA).Visibly distraught and being comforted by teammates and coaches, Johnson had his dreadlocks sheared off by a trainer. He returned to the mat and ended up winning his match.The NJSIAA and the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR), a department in the state’s attorney general’s office, have both launched investigations into the incident.“DCR generally becomes involved only if the matter is not properly investigated or remedied by that initial investigation,” Sharon Lauchaire, director of communications for the Office of the Attorney General, said in a statement provided to ABC News on Friday. “DCR was notified this afternoon of an incident involving an NJSIAA official and a wrestler from Buena High School. Because the incident involved an NJSIAA official, DCR has opened an investigation.”The referee, identified by Philadelphia ABC station WPVI-TV as Alan Maloney, will continue to be allowed to referee as an investigation into the incident continues, but he won’t oversee any Buena Regional High School matches, according to the school district.“The superintendent of the Buena Regional High School District spoke with the NJSIAA assistant director and stipulated that, although the investigation into the matter is ongoing, the assigned referee will no longer be permitted to officiate any contests that include any Buena Regional School District student-athletes,” Buena Regional School District Superintendent of Schools David Cappuccio Jr. wrote in a letter addressed to “community members and concerned citizens.”Johnson’s act of cutting off his dreadlocks right beside the mat was captured in a video that has now spread across the internet and garnered widespread anger. The video of Johnson having his hair cut by a trainer was first shared on Twitter by SNJ Today Sports Director Mike Frankel. The video had 8.97 million views as of early Saturday.Frankel called Johnson the “epitome of a team player” in his tweet.The rule states, “If an individual has hair longer than allowed, it must be contained in a legal hair cover that is attached to the ear guards. The wrestler opting to wear a legal hair cover must wear it to the weigh-in procedure.”Maloney, who is white, has a history of racism, according to WPVI-TV. Maloney was accused of using the N-word by a black referee at a referee get-together in 2016.Maloney did not respond to a request for comment from ABC News.“His hair has always been like that, so for them to now bring it up is out of line,” Johnson’s classmate, Maylin Bauza, told WPVI-TV.
