Diamond is the right man for the job

first_img KCS-content GOOD on Barclays for promoting Bob Diamond, head of the bank’s investment banking unit, to be the firm’s overall chief executive. He is the best man for the job, proving himself again with the successful integration of Lehman’s US operations. Yet given Diamond’s demonisation in the broadcast media and popular press, not least by the likes of Vince Cable and even the prime minister, it was a brave move; it was also a strong statement by one of the few banks that didn’t require a taxpayer bailout that it will do what is best for its global shareholders, rather than pander to vote-hungry, City-hating UK politicians. This is something that ought to reassure markets: shareholders are still nursing big losses from the financial crisis, even from the better managed, non-bailed out firms such as Barclays. As a result of the dominant narrative of the recession, the politics of envy has made a spectacular return. One of the main objections to Diamond’s appointment yesterday was that Barclays’ CEO-designate was too wealthy; apparently, only poor bankers or those willing to work for much lower salaries should be allowed to run banks. But given that taxpayers did not bail his bank out, that part of his fortune comes from his stake in a very successful wealth management arm he helped to build up for Barclays, and that he will be paying vast amounts of tax when he moves back to the UK, it is hard to see what the problem is with Diamond’s wealth. If Barclays’ customers object, they are free to move their business. Barclays, like other banks, has reformed its compensation practices to put emphasis on long-term incentives; there is nothing in Diamond’s new employment contract which will fuel short-term risk.Investment banks are not casinos; and even if they were, critics should remember that the central rule of gambling is that the house always wins. Casinos always make money; they don’t go bust – so in that sense “casino banking” should be a good thing for taxpayers, shareholders and the stability of the banking system. I jest, of course, but the terminology of this debate is truly idiotic. What makes banking dangerous are traditional loans: it is those that go dud and bring down economies, not trading. Another weakness is the mismatch between the duration of assets (loans) and liabilities (bank deposits or money market borrowing) but again this is nothing new. Despite the new-fangled derivatives, this recession was very much like all the others. Sub-prime lending was at the heart of the financial crisis; at its most basic, a traditional form of retail banking gone wrong. Investment bankers repackaged the bad loans; but they only got that opportunity because of stupid, traditional lending decisions.Instead of bashing those who provide huge tax revenues and employ tens of thousands of Londoners, the government ought to focus its attention on 2010’s real financial disgrace: the abysmal failure of HMRC and its computerised pay as you go income tax system to get its sums rights. Around 1.4m people are about to be sent letters demanding £2bn in underpaid tax, courtesy of official incompetence. There ought to be a purge at HMRC, with all top executives losing their jobs. Of course, it won’t happen, just as the officials and central bankers who did so much to fuel the bubble have walked away unscathed. It is high time politicians put their own houses in order, rather than try and chase away successful UK [email protected] Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 7 September 2010 11:40 pm whatsapp Diamond is the right man for the job Share whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comlast_img read more

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Albany, NY Rector Collierville, TN This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 [Anglican Communion News Service] Christians across the world are being invited to celebrate the season of Advent through an interactive, multilingual online calendar. The website adventword.org goes live on Advent Sunday (Nov. 27) in nine languages including, for the first time, Arabic. It allows people around the globe to create together an advent calendar with images shared by their mobile phones.Advent, which runs from Sunday, Nov. 27 to Christmas Eve, is the season when Christians prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus. It is traditionally marked with the putting up of an Advent calendar to count down the days. The calendars have daily windows which are opened to reveal images, small chocolates or other gifts.AdventWord is a new twist on this old theme: it invites people to sign up to receive a daily meditation. Recipients are invited to submit a photograph in response on their social media account with the hashtag #AdventWord. The photographs are pulled together in real time to create a living Advent calendar.The initiative is jointly run by the U.S.-based Society of Saint John the Evangelist (SSJE), a religious order of men in Cambridge, Massachusetts; with the Lady Doak College, a women’s college in south India; and the Anglican Communion Office.“AdventWord is a wonderfully innovative way to engage people in prayer all over the world,” the secretary general of the Anglican Communion, the Rt. Rev. Josiah Idowu-Fearon, said. “I am so encouraged to see such a creative use of social media to bring the community of Christ together.“The Bible calls on us to bring prayers and petitions to God. I urge Anglicans everywhere to sign up and get involved in what will be an extraordinary, powerful and global wave of prayer.”Brother Jim Woodrum, one of the SSJE monks, commented: “When I was a kid I loved opening the windows in the Advent calendar. Each window contained a message that pointed to the great mystery of Christmas. And now, to my delight, you can actually log on to adventword.org and pull back the windows for your own Advent calendar.“And what’s more, you can add your own photos and experience the joy of praying with others from around the globe throughout the season of Advent.”The AdventWord initiative was first launched in 2013. Since then it has been improved so that the daily reflection is now sent at 5am in the morning in each recipient’s home time zone. Last year it became multi-lingual with versions available in English, Chinese, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, Spanish, Tamil and American Sign Language. This year, thanks to St George’s Anglican Cathedral in Jerusalem, it will also be available in Arabic.You can sign up to receive the daily reflections at adventword.org.last_img read more

The storm has been blamed for at least two deaths and caused flooding, power outages and structural damage across the region. At least four Episcopal churches sustained property damage, as well as the diocese’s camp, Beckwith, in Fairhope, Alabama.The Rev. Will Lowry, rector of Holy Spirit Episcopal Church in Gulf Shores, reported on Facebook that the church was dealing with downed tree limbs and water that seeped into the church. “Otherwise we seem to have done well,” Lowry said, though the storm caused varying degrees of damage to some parishioners’ homes.An email update from the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast said the diocesan offices were without power and phone service as of Sept. 17. Other closings were reported in the southern part of the diocese, including at St. Paul’s Episcopal Preschool in Daphne, Alabama.Christ Episcopal Church in Pensacola, Florida, also reported the church was closed in the days after the storm, and it issued a call on Facebook asking parishioners to contact the parish’s clergy directly to report any damage or family needs.“We are here on the journey with you as we recover,” the post said.The Atlantic hurricane season typically runs from June through November, and the number of storms this year already has exhausted meteorologists’ list of names, the earliest that has ever happened. After Tropical Storm Wilfred formed this week, meteorologists shifted to using letters of the Greek alphabet for only the second time; the first was the devastating 2005 hurricane season, which included Katrina.Just two weeks before Sally, Hurricane Laura made landfall over southwest Louisiana, near the Texas state line, as one of the most powerful storms to hit the Gulf Coast. More than a dozen deaths were blamed on the storm, with the worst of the damage centered in and around Lake Charles, Louisiana.The recent storms and other increasingly frequent and intensifying natural disasters this year, from the West Coast wildfires to an Iowa windstorm, coincide with scientists’ warnings about the growing threats posed by climate change, especially ocean warming. The past five years are the five warmest years on record for global ocean temperatures.“Warm ocean temperatures are one of the key factors that strengthen hurricane development when overall conditions are conducive for their formation and growth,” according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. “In the future, there may not necessarily be more hurricanes, but there will likely be more intense hurricanes that carry higher wind speeds and more precipitation as a result of global warming.”Hurricane Sally reportedly dropped 30 inches of rain in some places, which combined with the storm surge caused heavy flooding in coastal communities.Central Gulf Coast Bishop Russell Kendrick spent Sept. 18 traveling to some of the churches in his diocese that have been impacted by the hurricane. The diocese also was hit hard in October 2018 by Hurricane Michael, which made landfall farther east, near Panama City.“Each storm leaves its own legacy,” Kendrick said in an emailed statement to Episcopal News Service. “Hurricane Sally really caught us off guard by the direction she took. Because of that, very few were prepared. Thankfully, while there is significant damage, the folks who live in this area are resilient and hopeful.”The diocese is working with Episcopal Relief & Development to assist residents and business owners who are dealing with severe damage to their homes and businesses. Camp Beckwith, meanwhile, shared photos on Facebook showing trees downed by the storm, including one that hit a camp building.In Pensacola, the storm knocked out power and phone service at Holy Cross Episcopal Church, according to a Sept. 17 YouTube update from the Rev. Rob Dixon, Holy Cross’ rector. Dixon offered encouragement to parishioners and asked them to let him know their needs and the needs of others in the community so the congregation could help coordinate assistance with the recovery.“I hope you’re OK. I do want to encourage you all to join me right now in just taking a breath,” he said. “We’re going to get the work done.”Dixon also invited them – while still following COVID-19 precautions – to gather with him at 9 a.m. Sept. 20 outside the church for a brief prayer. Afterward, they will work together to clear debris from the parish property.“After Sunday, what we’re going to have is a plan for next week, for how we can be together the hands and feet of Christ for one another and our neighbors,” he said, “together how we can slowly and faithfully help to dig our way out after this mess of a hurricane.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Water Meadow / Jackson Ingham Architects

first_imgArchDaily CopyHouses•Wooburn Green, United Kingdom Houses Photographs Save this picture!© James MorrisText description provided by the architects. Water Meadow is a bespoke family home set within a quintessentially English estate on the banks of the River Thames in Buckinghamshire, replacing a dilapidated sixties bungalow which sat precariously above the rising flood waters. The brief, for our first new build project, was to create a “forever home” for our retired clients, accommodating their grown-up children and social lifestyles whilst reconnecting the dwelling to the sprawling rear garden and views towards the marina.Save this picture!© James MorrisApproachThe client’s brief was clear from the outset, large open spaces for people to convene and take in the views across the rear gardens. Early sketches and conversations began to evoke open plan designs akin to the case study houses of post-war America, defining spaces within a simple rectilinear form (the former bungalow’s footprint) by means of a change in material or a single step in the plan rather than constructing walls. This method of thinking lead to a series of volumes being placed in a linear fashion along the center of the plan. These timber volumes represent serving and circulation spaces and are book-ended with a brick hearth aimed at strengthening the center of the home within the kitchen as a place to unwind.Save this picture!SectionA second story occupies just half of the footprint of the building and provides a private master suite for the clients, with an open riser stair and study linking both levels. Whilst the building’s street-facing elevation remains modest at ground level and concealed behind a 1.8m tall laurel hedge, the first-floor brickwork playfully introduces a patchwork of push and pulled courses leading into a perforated skin. A small gesture to the intricate brick detailing of the surrounding houses. The south elevation; however, is composed of a series of terraces at garden, ground and first floor levels providing extensions of space with walls of glass providing a backdrop to the social antics from within. Frank Lloyd Wright: Hearth is the psychological center of the home.Save this picture!© James MorrisChallengesThe project’s location within the estate provided ample constraint from the outset. Sat within the green belt, a Conservation Area and an active flood-plain helped to define the project in section. To take maximum advantage of the sloping land and to satisfy conservation concerns, the house naturally embedded itself into the ground to maintain a low a profile along the front elevation, whilst the introduction of a mono pitch to the roofs would help maximize height at the rear. However, early feedback from the local authority resulted in the house being lifted 750mm to provide flood chambers beneath the house to future proof the occupants from rising flood levels.Save this picture!© James MorrisThis provided a series of additional challenges, both structurally and financially, consuming more than 30% of the construction budget into the groundworks. Structurally, the house would now be raised upon a concrete plinth, upon which a steel frame was erected in order to create large open spaces with no visible internal structure, and finished in a masonry outer skin which ties the house back into its setting. The result is a modest 220 sqm dwelling with strong reference to the local arts & crafts vernacular from the front with a Californian-esque rear of glass expanse and stepped terraces for al fresco entertaining.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometryArchitect quotes“The approach to the house follows a strict route along narrow elongated steps, with each offering a slender view through the house to the gardens. Once at the entrance, a large sliding door completes the reveal and the green backdrop draws the visitor through to the large family space beyond.”Save this picture!© James MorrisProject gallerySee allShow lessTrautenberk Microbrewery / ADR s.r.o.Selected ProjectsReception Area of the Schaubühne Berlin / Barkow LeibingerSelected Projects Share Water Meadow / Jackson Ingham ArchitectsSave this projectSaveWater Meadow / Jackson Ingham Architects “COPY” 2017 “COPY” Lead Architects: United Kingdom ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/898472/water-meadow-jia Clipboard Photographs:  James Morris Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects CopyAbout this officeJackson Ingham ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWooburn GreenUnited KingdomPublished on August 03, 2018Cite: “Water Meadow / Jackson Ingham Architects” 03 Aug 2018.
