Analyst views: Will Tesco bounce back from poor Christmas sales?

Around £650m was devoted to tackling online crime in the defence review, some of which has gone towards a new Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance. center_img Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Cyber crime costs £27bn whatsapp last_img read more

Rugby World Cup Daily – Tonga beat Japan

first_imgWednesday Sep 21, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Tonga beat Japan Tonga and Japan provided another entertaining World Cup game earlier today as the Tongan fans finally got something to cheer about, as their side came away 31-18 winners in Whangarei. Flyhalf Kurt Morath kicked sixteen points for the Tongans as Japan suffered their 17th consecutive RWC loss. Coach John Kirwan had aspirations of picking up at least one win, and Tonga would have been a game they targeted for a win.Vili Ma’afu, Lua Lokotui, and Fetu’u Vainikolo all scored tries for the Tongans while Morath did the rest with the boot. Japan themselves scored three, but failed to land most of their kicks.In today’s Rugby World Cup daily there is a short recap of the game, but we also get to see what’s happening at the fanzone in Christchurch, where despite their being no matches, they’re still creating a tournament buzz.There’s also a look at why the smaller nations, often referred to as minnows, are now becoming more of a threat, as they are no longer serious whipping boys when it comes to the World Cup.You can view official highlights from the match here.What were your thoughts on the match, and do you see Tonga progressing further?

How do you transform a 50-year-old villa into a comfortable, contemporary, sustainable home? To find the answer, the architect Theo Reitsema and the interior designer Stephanie Weitering, who are married to each other, spent a year living in a 1967-built house in the Dutch community of Rijssen, looking, listening and feeling. They and their two young children settled in the villa, set in the middle of the forest. Together they explored the possibilities presented by the house and its location.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanReitsema and Weitering made discoveries during that first year that would inform the house’s transformation. For instance, the family occupied the villa through all seasons. Living on a hill in the forest means you’re surrounded by greenery in summer. Since the thick foliage provides shade, the house doesn’t need any sun protection or air conditioning beyond an overhang on the west side. And in winter, the low sun warms the house and its occupants can see for hundreds of metres through the branches.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanDuring the metamorphosis, Reitsema and Weitering took full advantage of Villa RR’s hilltop position. The house comprises two storeys on the east side and one on the west. The application of dark stucco to the lower floor, which contains a double garage and a home office, turned it into a sort of plinth for the floor above, where the living and sleeping areas are located. The upper storey is given a distinctive appearance by a new wooden facade, which is relatively closed on the east side and fully open on the west. The front door marks the transition between the two sections. A playful outdoor staircase gives the entrance extra appeal.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanReitsema and Weitering might not have thought of building the house lengthwise on the deep lot, precisely along the east-west axis. But they applaud the decision by the original architect, J. Abma. The house’s orientation allows for views of both the north and south sides of the garden from the living room. To maximise enjoyment of the landscape, Villa RR has been extended with a glass volume at the western end. The roof is supported by four slender (38mm) chromed columns that reflect the landscape, enhancing the panoramic views from the living room.Save this picture!© Ronald TillemanThe transformation has kept the living spaces on the west side of the house and the bedrooms on the east. Between the bedrooms and the living room is the garden room. In contrast to the light, airy living room, the garden room is more enclosed. The use of timber cladding continues on the garden room’s walls, transforming it into a veranda when the bi-fold doors are opened fully and creating a smooth transition between the interior and the flower garden.The architects have taken a number of steps to ensure that the house will continue to provide a high level of comfort in the future. They have installed a heat recovery system, triple glazing, high-quality insulation, LED lighting and energy-efficient appliances, making Villa RR nearly energy-neutral and ready for the next 50 years.Save this picture!Basement planSave this picture!Ground floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessPF House / FERREIRARQUITETOSSelected ProjectsOne-None-Stone House / TAO OfficeSelected Projects Share Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeReitsema and Partners ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRijssenThe NetherlandsPublished on September 25, 2017Cite: “Villa RR / Reitsema and Partners Architects” 25 Sep 2017.

Situated on a sloping hillside with ocean views in a typical residential neighborhood, this project was an extensive renovation of an uninspired house that failed to take advantage of the obvious assets of the property: the views. Although no square footage was added, the interior spaces were completely reorganized, taking down interior walls and reorienting living spaces to open up to the incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. Living, dining, study and kitchen were combined into one common space that is framed by a 9’6” high and 40’ wide opening that pockets away completely, revealing uninterrupted views of the ocean. The master bedroom was also redesigned as a single set of flowing spaces. Bedroom, bath and closet have no doors separating them and of course are open to the ocean view. The simple material palette of concrete floors, stucco exterior, Rhinezink panels and walnut cabinets was another strategy to keep the architecture focused on the site and place.Save this picture!© Chang KimSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Chang KimThe entry sequence was designed to create privacy from the street: a mature olive tree sits in the entry courtyard behind a board-formed concrete wall, providing glimpses of the Ocean beyond while entering the house.Save this picture!© Chang KimThe owner is a single professional with grown children.

Mexico’s next president must prioritize protecting journalists

first_img As Mexicans prepare to go to the polls on 1 July to elect a president, deputies, senators and nine governors, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the next president to address the need to protect Mexico’s journalists, one that is all the more urgent after the outgoing president’s disastrous record on press freedom. Judicial investigations, both federal and local, rarely identify those behind these crimes, creating a vicious circle and widespread mistrust of officialdom among journalists. The Special Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Freedom of Expression (FEADLE) needs more funding and human resources to enhance its investigative capacity and to be able to solve more crimes. Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state The next president must firstly reinforce the federal mechanism for protecting journalists, which badly needs more resources. It needs procedures for handling the most urgent cases, online attacks, and journalists who have had to relocate. It needs to improve risk evaluation and monitoring of the protection provided to individual journalists. And it needs to provide more information about its results, and to improve coordination with the Executive Commission for Attention to Victims (CEAV). Organisation MexicoAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Organized crimeCorruptionArmed conflictsImpunityViolenceFreedom of expression to go further 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies JUAN MABROMATA / AFP “We deplore the lack of political will on the part the presidential candidates who, despite declaring their good intentions, have given no concrete undertaking to effectively combat the spiral of violence and impunity for crimes against journalists,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. News On 25 March, RSF’s regional representatives handed Ricardo Anaya, the Mexico al Frente alliance’s presidential candidate, a series of recommendations that included new procedures for investigating crimes of violence against journalists, and reinforcement of the mechanism for protecting threatened journalists by means of more frequent and effective monitoring and inclusion of the victims’ psychological dimension. The failure to address this problem places a heavy responsibility on the shoulders of Mexico’s next president and cabinet. With 11 journalists murdered in 2017 (and five already this year), Mexico is for the second year running the world’s second deadliest country for the media, only just behind Syria, a country at war, where 12 were killed in 2017, and now only surpassed by Afghanistan, also a country at war, where 11 journalists have so far been killed this year.

Since 2000, 90% of these crimes have gone unpunished, according to the figures kept by Mexico’s National Commission on Human Rights (CNDH).center_img April 28, 2021 Find out more Outgoing President Enrique Peña Nieto, who will stand down in November, failed to rein in Mexico’s pervasive corruption during his six-year term, in which at least 39 journalists have been murdered and more than a thousand have been attacked – an all-time record – and press freedom has steadily declined. The report was based on the visit that the two rapporteurs made to Mexico from 27 November to 2 December 2017, when RSF drew their attention to the problem of Mexican journalists being driven into internal exile by death threats. This is a growing problem that the future administration will also have to address. On 28 May, RSF, the Committee to Protect Journalists and Article 19 Mexico jointly expressed their concerns to the campaign staff of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the presidential candidate of the Juntos Haremos Historia alliance, and submitted the same recommendations. However, none of these recommendations was mentioned during the campaign. “The candidates are nonetheless aware of the urgency of implementing a full and effective policy for protecting journalists and preventing the risks to which they are exposed, as we recommend. Mexico’s next president will have this heavy responsibility and will need to make this policy a major element of the administration’s programme if the deadly trend is to be reversed.” Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Mexico May 13, 2021 Find out more Human rights and, in particular, the freedom to inform, were only briefly raised during public debates by the political parties involved in the election. Worse still, the programmes of the leading candidates include no concrete measures for addressing this fundamental issue although the candidates had promised RSF that they would make press freedom and security a priority. These priorities are shared by the UN and OAS special rapporteurs for freedom of expression, David Kaye and Edison Lanza, who issued a detailed report on freedom of opinion and expression in Mexico on 11 June deploring the fact that impunity is still the general rule and that the mechanisms for protecting journalists are largely ineffective for preventing attacks against them. RSF_en The need for reform is indeed urgent. Outside of election periods, journalists are constantly subjected to threats and violence in Mexico. Covering stories linked to organized crime and violence are getting more and more dangerous, especially at the local level. Press freedom ignored during the campaign Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Journalists prevented from doing their job

first_img News August 14, 2020 Find out more News Organisation RSF_en News June 17, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists prevented from doing their job As violence continues, the media are increasingly being prevented from working in the south of Kyrgyzstan. News is being reported only sporadically as infrastructure is targeted and journalists obstructed by clashes.Initially, local television stations in Osh were targeted. TV Osh, Mezon and Akhborot were ransacked, with the second two torched and wrecked, leaving computers and databases unusable. All three stations are Uzbek-language, targeted since the start of the clashes. Before the events of 10 June, a large number of journalists were attending a seminar in Osh. In the current chaos, it is not known how many of them have been evacuated and which media they were working for. Concordant sources confirm that media in the south of the country have been advising their journalists to stay at home and not to put themselves in danger by covering the situation. Local and foreign journalists do not or rarely venture into the urban Uzbek areas for fear of being attacked. Some news is filtering out however through journalists reporting from their windows on the current state of the troubles. They are also managing to send news to websites such as, by telephone. In Uzbekistan, on the other side of the border, which has now been closed, Reporters Without Borders voiced its relief at the news of the release on 16 June of prominent freelance Uzbek journalist, Alexei Volossevich. Police arrested Volossevich on 13 June when he came to cover the arrival of hundreds of refugees of Uzbek origin, fleeing from neighbouring Kyrgyzstan. He was placed in a detention centre for people without ID or fixed address (His papers were in a bag that he did not have the time to grab at the moment of his arrest). The authorities said they would release him as soon as they had checked his identity. Although his colleagues brought his passport the following day, he was not freed until 16 June.Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release of Alexei Volossevich, but regrets that the authorities prevented him from doing his work. Even in the current situation, the government of Islam Karimov has not let up in its attacks on journalists. The arrest and detention of Volossevich could be seen as a warning to all journalists seeking to cover these events. Could this be a continuation of the campaign against the press that saw an upsurge in January this year?The Kyrgyz health ministry has reported that the violence of the past days has left 178 dead and 1,700 wounded. Some international bodies, including the International Committee of the Red Cross have referred to “hundreds of deaths”.

Gavin Newsom plans to roll out California’s own state-level Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Newsom unveiled a California Consumer Financial Protection Law on Friday.“As the Trump administration undermines and weakens the rules that protect consumers from predatory businesses, California is filling the void and stepping up to protect families and consumers,” Newsom told the Los Angeles Times.The new California Consumer Financial Protection Law would allegedly overhaul the existing Department of Business Oversight and rename it the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, or DFPI.”The federal government’s rollback of the CFPB leaves Californians vulnerable to predatory businesses and leaves companies without the clarity they need to innovate,” the budget summary stated.According to Times’ sources, the new Department of Financial Protection and Innovation would include “dozens of new staff” and greater scrutiny of consumer markets “to identify patterns of abuse.” The 2020-21 state budget will include $10.2 million Financial Protection Fund and 44 positions, growing to $19.3 million and 90 positions ongoing in 2022-23, which is intended to provide consumers with more protection against unfair and deceptive practices when accessing financial services and products.”This will be accomplished by expanding the Department’s authority to pursue unlicensed financial services providers not currently subject to regulatory oversight such as debt collectors, credit reporting agencies, and financial technology (fintech) companies, among others,” the summary adds.The DFPI’s new duties will include licensing and examining new industries that are currently under-regulated, analyzing patterns and developments in the market to inform evidence-based policies and enforcement, consumer education programs, a new Financial Technology Innovation Office that will proactively cultivate the responsible development of new consumer financial products, legal support for the administration of the new law, and additional staff to support the Department’s increased regulatory responsibilities.
