first_imgThe 64th Foxtons branch opening in London and the home counties is about to happen, featuring its signature café-style layout, design and green frontage.But it’s not been plain sailing for the agent, which is busy readying the site for its inaugural opening; window displays were still empty and builders appeared to be still working on the site when The Negotiator paid a visit.Missing from the front is any of the signature illuminated signage that most Foxtons are famous for, after planners turned down the company’s original plans for the site (see below) although change of use was eventually granted.Lambeth’s Assistant Director of Planning & Development David Joyce said in May this year that the advertisement (as he calls the illuminated sign) would be an “unduly dominant feature in the streetscene” and “detrimental to visual amenity” which is possibly his convoluted way of say “too garish.”He also said the signage, which in the plans was fairly small by Foxtons’ standards, was “unlikely to preserve, protect or enhance the locally listed buildings and the neighbouring Albert Embankment Conservation Area.”The branch is also being created within what was the headquarters of homelessness charity The Big Issue, whose magazine sellers are often seen outside shops and tube stations in the capital.Foxtons are likely to be hoping this latest branch opening doesn’t attract the kind of unwanted attention its Brixton branch launch did last year.In May that year ‘reclaim Brixton’ anti-gentrification protestors smashed its front window and daubed graffiti across some of its display furniture.signage Vauxhall window displays Foxtons September 30, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_img The decision by TCR2 Therapeutics to establish a presence at the Cell & Gene Therapy Catapult manufacturing centre is a major international vote of confidence in the UK life sciences sector. The Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult manufacturing centre is a world-leading facility, bringing the manufacture of pioneering treatments closer to patients. The decision recognises the level and maturity of government investment into UK manufacturing capability and the associated supply chain. UK Research and Innovation, through the government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, backs this crucial component of the modern Industrial Strategy, building the jobs and industries of tomorrow. We have underlined our support by also funding three new Advanced Therapy Treatment Centres to complement the work of the manufacturing centre. Working across the UK, this network will support the roll-out of cell and gene therapies, bringing together expert clinicians, researchers, scientists, developers and private companies to demonstrate the benefits for patients. The CGT Catapult manufacturing centre in Stevenage, opened in April 2018, is backed by more than £60 million of government investment, including funding from Innovate UK and the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). TCR2 joins advanced therapy companies Adaptimmune, Autolus, Cell Medica, and Freeline.Working with the manufacturing centre are the three UK Advanced Therapies Treatment Centres, which were awarded £21 million in through the ISCF Medicines Manufacturing challenge. The centres are collaborative ventures between industry, academic and NHS partners. They comprise the Innovate Manchester Advanced Therapy Centre Hub (iMATCH), the Midlands-Wales Advanced Therapy Treatment Centre (MW-ATTC, comprising Birmingham, Wales and Nottingham) and the Northern Alliance Advanced Therapies Treatment Centre (NAATTC, comprising Scotland, Newcastle and Leeds). By choosing to work with the Cell & Gene Therapy Catapult manufacturing centre, TCR2 Therapeutics demonstrates to the world that the UK is a global leader in this sector. Advanced cell and gene therapies show great promise in treating conditions such as cancer. It is vital to support research and development that could result in huge improvements in patient outcomes. Boosted by investment through the government’s modern Industrial Strategy and the life sciences sector deal, the UK can realise both the commercial and societal benefits from these advances in this vital and thriving sector. Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, welcomed today the announcement that immunotherapy company, TCR2 Therapeutics, is to become the first US organisation to work with the Cell and Gene Therapy (CGT) Catapult at its Stevenage manufacturing centre. TCR2 has selected the facility to establish a site for global manufacturing and capability development to advance novel T cell receptor therapies for patients suffering from cancer.Dr Ian Campbell, Interim Executive Chair, Innovate UK said: Dr Kath Mackay, Interim Director – Ageing Society, Health & Nutrition, Innovate UK, added:last_img read more

first_imgFew details have been floating around about a new Grateful Dead tribute piece, led by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National. Some of the tracklisting from that recorded tribute recently leaked, and the band quietly slipped their way onto Justin Vernon‘s (Bon Iver) second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival for their first and only live performance as “Day Of The Dead.”Rolling Stone Australia sat down with Scott Devendorf, bassist of The National, to talk more about the project. “One of things we’ve been working on is a Grateful Dead covers record. We’ve been working on it for a number of years and it’s finally coming out some time in late [U.S.] spring. It’s all musical activity and exercise, versus sitting around and not doing anything [laughs].”He continues about this exciting new album, “It’s 60 songs and about five-and-a-half hours long, it’s really great. We worked hard on it and there’s a ton of other bands on it, and we’re the house band on a bunch of stuff. It’s a multi-artist effort, but we’re sort of curating and producing it. There’s so many people on it – the War on Drugs, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Lee Ronaldo, Ira from Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams, Bruce Hornsby with Bon Iver and a bunch of others. It’s gonna be cool.”According to some leaked information from Will Hermes’ Twitter account a few weeks ago, we can also expect to hear the Flaming Lips, Wilco with GD founding member Bob Weir, and many more on this 60-song compilation. We are indeed looking forward to this genre-spanning tribute collaboration. Projects like this go to show just how far music can really go. [via Rolling Stone AU]last_img read more

first_imgToday, the Brooklyn Museum announced that it will be the final stop for the critically acclaimed exhibition, David Bowie, which will run at the museum from March 2nd to July 15th, 2018. The exhibit, which was organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and curated by Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh from the museum’s Department of Theatre and Performance, is a retrospective on the expansive five-decade career of David Bowie, focusing on the creative process of one of the influential and innovative musicians during the last century.‘Celebrating David Bowie’ Taps Bowie’s Frequent Collaborators For 2018 TourThe exhibit contains over three hundred objects, including never-before-seen objects and exclusive works, related to David Bowie from his time as a teenager through to his death in 2016. For example, one can expect to see handwritten lyrics, original costumes, photography, set designs, album artwork, and rare performance material within the David Bowie exhibit. Together, these pieces create an immersive journey for viewers that outline Bowie’s work and influences using theatrical scene-setting, animation and video, and an advanced audio experience created in partnership by Sennheiser.The exhibition also explores Bowie’s massive list of collaborations during his long-spanning career, looking at his work with those in the fields of fashion, theater, sound, art, film, sound, and graphics. It also contains over sixty costumes, including iconic pieces, such as the  bodysuits (1972) designed by Freddie Burretti; familiar artwork, such as set designs, photographs, album artwork, and cover proofs; and video from films and live performances.Listen To David Bowie Rock “Suffragette City” Live In ’78 On This New TrackAs Victoria Broackes, curator and creator of the exhibit notes, “Since left the V&A, London in August 2013, nearly 1.8 million visitors have flocked to see the exhibition as it has travelled around the world, a testament to Bowie’s depth, breadth and worldwide reach and the public’s interest in the processes of creation behind such a uniquely influential performer. Bowie himself left England in 1974 to eventually settle in America, so we could not be more delighted that the final leg of the tour brings the show back to New York, where Bowie made his home.”David Bowie at the Brooklyn Museum will be a timed ticketed exhibition, with tickets on sale on Wednesday, November 15th, with the cost of adults starting at $35 and upwards. You can purchase tickets at or Members of the Brooklyn Museum will also be able to purchase tickets on pre-sale starting November 8th.last_img read more

first_imgIllustration by Wade MickleyBy Erica Lineberry and Steve BohrerYES: Parents should lead by exampleIt’s easy to assume that those of us with a thirst for the outdoors will wind down our adventuring once kiddos come along. It’s even easier for some to think that we should trade in our skis, snowboards, and carabiners for pacifiers, strollers, and nightlights.But many outdoor enthusiasts continue their recreational pursuits after becoming parents, some with kids in tow! At first glance, it’s easy to call the mom dangling from a 500-foot cliff irresponsible, or to accuse the dad ripping through fresh, backcountry powder of being selfish. But zoom in, and you’ll see that the climbing mom is draped in safety equipment and attached to a rope, and the snowboarding dad is well-prepared for off-piste conditions.In my experience, most adventuresome parents are capable individuals taking calculated risks; not adrenaline junkies scoffing at danger. Take rock climbing. In a sport where mistakes can be fatal, no one can say climbing is without risk. But different types of climbing have different fall consequences, from top-roping at a local indoor gym to free-soloing a big wall. If you’re okay with the consequences of a fall, climb on. If not, take up golf. Well, maybe not golf – a golf ball to the head would surely leave a mark. What about chess? Nope, sedentary activities are bad for the heart.All kidding aside, every one of us makes decisions based on probable danger, whether we are climbers, skiers, soccer moms, or couch potatoes.  As a parent, running late to a music lesson or sports practice, do you risk an accident by driving too fast, or do you slow down and risk being late? How many times have you faced uncertainty by getting on an airplane, swimming in the ocean, or not wearing sunscreen? These daily risks may be harder to avoid than taking up rock climbing, bungee-jumping, or skiing, but they can be just as dangerous.According to the American Alpine Club, I’m much more likely to die on the way to the grocery store than on a rock face – fatal automobile accidents reach more than 30,000 per year, compared to 1,400 climbing-related fatalities from 1951 to 2007. Being a mother doesn’t immunize me from the risks of everyday activities like driving, so why should I stop doing what I really love? We shouldn’t raise our children in fear, shielding them from every imaginable risk.Erica Lineberry lives and climbs in Charlotte, N.C., and is the proprietor of climbing and parenting blog, Cragmama. NO: having kids should change how parents take risksFirefighters, police officers, and military parents risk their lives daily in service to their country. Should we deny those careers to parents? I think most of us would agree that we shouldn’t. Let’s ask the question more pointedly then: should parents take life-threatening risks in the outdoors in pursuit of recreation?I don’t believe parents need to give up all outdoor pursuits until their children have finished college. Climbing, skiing, or running trails are more than just pleasant diversions. Mountains, trails, and forests are a part of who I am. When I haven’t been outside for a while I get cranky, and my wife sends me on a trail run to come back to my senses. Time spent in the outdoors recharges my spirit and helps me to be a happier person.All outdoor pursuits involve some level of risk. We could debate what constitutes “life-threatening” risk till the cows come home. Risk is, by its very nature, ever-present yet unpredictable. Bad things occasionally happen, even to cautious people. However, I think that those of us who regularly recreate in the outdoors have a pretty solid understanding of risks with serious consequences.When children come into our lives, we need to reexamine the level of risk we’re willing to accept. As parents, our primary responsibility is to our children. We owe them a warm bed, healthy food, and a sense of security and love. I believe parents can and should spend time in the outdoors, but we must seriously question our motivation.That line will be different for every parent. Ultimately, the decision will come down to our ability as parents to subjugate our selfish desires for adventure, adrenaline, or peer recognition to our love for our families.My wife and I recently returned home from a two-week trip to southern Chile. I will never forget the look in my four-year old daughter’s teary brown eyes as she held my face in her hands, carefully examining me as if to assure herself that I was really there. I could only imagine how much she missed us while we were away. I can’t bear the thought of risking my life for some ultimately meaningless thrill and leaving her wondering why she was less important to her dad than some mountain.Steve Bohrer is a founder of and regular contributor to The Outdoor Parent lifestyle website and lives with his wife and five children in Idaho Falls, Idaho. what do you think?Join the debate at blueridgeoutdoors.comlast_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo January 18, 2011 The president of Brazil has decided to postpone awarding a contract for the purchase of military jets and reevaluate the bids by the finalists, a decision that could indicate a realignment of the country’s strategic alliances, sources familiar with the issue told Reuters. The measure is a surprise because Dilma Rousseff’s predecessor, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, several times expressed his preference for the bid by the French firm Dassault to build at least thirty-six of its Rafale jets, generating speculation that the final announcement was only a formality. Nevertheless, Lula left office on 1 January without having resolved the issue, leaving the decision to Rousseff, his former cabinet chief. Rousseff decided to reopen the evaluation process and does not have a clear favorite at this point, a high-ranking administration source said. “It’s her decision now (…) and she wants to analyze the details carefully,” said the source, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue. The other finalists in the competition for the contract, expected to be worth at least four billion dollars, are the Swiss firm Saab with its Gripen NGs and the F-18s of the U.S. firm Boeing Co. Last week, Rousseff personally asked U.S. senators visiting her country for additional guarantees from the U.S. Congress with regard to technology transfer, in order to improve Boeing’s bid, sources with knowledge of the conversation said.last_img read more

first_imgLocation and ATM availability is still perceived as the primary driver for potential members selecting or switching financial institutions. However, mobile and online banking offerings are increasingly more important, especially among millennials. For credit unions who have prioritized improving their mobile banking app, only to be left scratching their heads when download numbers and usage data don’t reflect expectations, here are some key reasons why there may be member hesitation to adopt the technology:Security Concerns: Mobile banking security has been consistently identified as the top barrier to adoption. General security concerns will keep a percentage of your members from moving to new technologies, and specific concerns such as rogue apps that have the potential to steal mobile banking login credentials will certainly deter some members from embracing your mobile app.  It is up to credit unions to sell their cybersecurity as a strength, because in reality, banking via a mobile app is as safe as walking into the credit union and interacting directly with a teller, and it is actually much more secure than banking through a browser on a personal computer. Why? Because mobile banking providers can control the security through the app much easier than through a browser.1 continue reading » 32SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_img“We are hoping the accounting system will be able to address some taxation issues that have been raised repeatedly by the BPK,” the finance minister told lawmakers.The government expects the accounting system to provide real-time information on tax arrears. Sri Mulyani noted that the rise in tax arrears recorded in 2019 was partly due to a delay in excise payments.According to data from the Finance Ministry, the tax arrears due to the government reached Rp 94.69 trillion (US$6.46 billion) in 2019, an increase of 16.22 percent from 2018.The latest accounting system is part of the government’s efforts to reform the country’s tax system as the COVID-19 pandemic puts additional pressure on the government’s finances in 2020 and 2021. As of July, the government had received Rp Rp 922.2 trillion in state revenue, down by 12.4 percent from the same period last year. This figure is about 54 percent of the year’s target and mainly consists of tax and excise revenue, which amounted to Rp 711 trillion.Meanwhile, state expenditures had risen 1.3 percent yoy to Rp 1.25 quadrillion as of July.Last year, the government took in Rp 1.96 quadrillion in state revenue, about 90 percent of its target, including Rp 1.54 quadrillion in tax and excise revenue.Read also: Weak state revenue reflects ‘fragile’ economic recovery: Sri Mulyani“The tax reform agenda should be strengthened and continued, particularly by expanding the tax base,” Sri Mulyani said.The finance minister added that the government would continue reforms by simplifying the bureaucracy and improving data quality, among other measures.“We realize that conducting tax reform is not an easy task,” she said.BPK auditor Agus Joko Pramono said recently that the government’s rising tax arrears suggested a weak internal monitoring system. He urged the government to resolve the issue to optimize tax collection.Speaking during the hearing, Dolfie OFP of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) urged the government to collect the mounting tax arrears, adding that they would reduce the government’s need to issue sovereign debt papers (SBNs).“[Collecting] tax arrears could increase revenue compared to issuing more SBNs,” he said.The government is planning to raise Rp 990 trillion through the issuance of bonds in the second half this year and to raise $5.5 billion from multilateral organizations.Topics : The government is seeking to improve its tax arrears accounting system after the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) discovered irregularities in the existing arrangement, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said on Wednesday.Addressing House Commission XI overseeing financial affairs, Sri Mulyani cited a BPK report on weaknesses in the internal monitoring system of the Tax Office and the Customs and Excise Directorate General.The government implemented a new accounting system in early July to improve tax collection and to respond to the BPK’s concerns, she said.last_img read more
