Key BBC exec gets the chop

first_img whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp Key BBC exec gets the chop BBC deputy director general Mark Byford is to be made redundant and will leave the corporation in March 2011 as the broadcaster tries to address criticisms that it has become bloated and pays excessive salaries to its senior executives. Byford is understood to be the first casualty of the review of the corporation’s management structure, after it promised to reduce the number of senior managers by a quarter. BBC director general Mark Thompson said in August that he was committed to reducing the management bill, promising “simpler structures, fewer layers, fewer management boards”. According to the BBC’s own accounts Byford currently receives a salary of £475,000 a year and has a total remuneration package worth £488,000. He is expected to get a payoff of up to £900m. Last year he had his bonuses suspended, along with others on the BBC board. Sharon Baylay, head of marketing and communications, and Lucy Adams, human resources director, are also expected to leave the board, retaining their roles but reporting to Caroline Thomson, the chief operating officer. A third member of the board may follow.

New Jersey’s Meadowlands to begin taking sports bets

New Jersey recently became the second state to launch a regulated sports betting service in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the federal 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) earlier this year. On June 14, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy placed the state’s first legal sports wagers as betting went live at Monmouth Park, while the Borgata in Atlantic City is also accepting bets.Meadowlands is now looking to join the regulated market and, according to the NJgamblingsites.com website, has set a target launch date of July 15. The racetrack has already brokered a partnership with Betfair US ahead of the planned launch. Jeff Gural, owner and chief executive of Meadowlands, said that the failure of neighbouring New York to pass sports betting this year will boost business at the racetrack. “New York did me such a favour by not passing sports betting; they gave me a tremendous gift,” Gural told the Associated Press. “That leaves me the entirety of New York City, Long Island, Westchester County.“There are 15 million people that live within 20 miles of the Meadowlands.”Related articles: US postpones congressional sports betting hearing Governor places first bet in NJ Email Address 26th June 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Race Track and Racino New Jersey’s Meadowlands to begin taking sports betslast_img read more

Australia 20-19 Wales: The verdict

first_imgNOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The scrum is still an issue for Wallabies. Not only did they regularly give away free-kicks for an early engagement but in the second half, with Paul James on for Wales, they conceded long-arm penalties.Wallabies reward: Stephen Moore and Will Genia with the James Bevan TrophyIn quotes – winnersCaptain David Pocock: “Our composure was good, and Berrick (Barnes) and Will (Genia) did a great job of directing us around the field. Those are the games you want to win – it was a real arm wrestle but we got in a winning position and held on.”In quotes – losersCoach Rob Howley: “We’re a pretty honest bunch of coaches. It’s a 3-0 whitewash and we’re not hiding away from that, but we’ve showed the ability to bounce back week after week and I’m immensely proud of the players.”AUSTRALIA: Kurtley Beale; Adam Ashley-Cooper, Rob Horne, Pat McCabe (Anthony Fainga’a 35), Digby Ioane; Berrick Barnes, Will Genia; Benn Robinson, Tatafu Polota-Nau (Stephen Moore 56), Sekope Kepu (Ben Alexander 56), Sitaleki Timani (Rob Simmons 72), Nathan Sharpe, Scott Higginbotham (Dave Dennis 56), David Pocock (captain), Wycliff Palu.Try: Horne. Pens: Barnes 5.WALES: Leigh Halfpenny; Alex Cuthbert, Jonathan Davies, Ashley Beck (Scott Williams 66), George North; Rhys Priestland (James Hook 69), Mike Phillips; Gethin Jenkins (Paul James h-t), Matthew Rees (Ken Owens 66), Adam Jones, Bradley Davies, Alun Wyn Jones (Luke Charteris 66), Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton (captain, Justin Tipuric 29), Ryan Jones (Luke Charteris 50-56). Bish bash bosh: Adam Jones tackles Ben Alexander in what was a hugely physical encounter in SydneyBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellThe Wallabies succeeded where Wales failed last week, taking the lead with six minutes to go and controlling the ball in the closing stages to secure another narrow win and a 3-0 Test series whitewash. It was a courageous effort from Wales, an effort epitomised by captain Sam Warburton, who played on bravely for several minutes in the first half, making a few key tackles, after suffering concussion and vomiting on the pitch. Ryan Jones took over as skipper and went over for a well-worked try but Rob Horne just managed to hold onto the ball to hit back with a try for Australia. Wales will now have to wait until the autumn Test series for another crack at turning these narrow defeats into victories.Mr Consistent: Wales’ Leigh HalfpennyKey momentLeigh Halfpenny put in a long kick in the 72nd minute and when Kurtley Beale put his foot on the line it resulted in a Wales’ lineout in the Australian 22. It was the prime opportunity for Wales to build on their 19-17 lead but instead they gave away a penalty at the ensuing maul – the old truck-and-trailer scenario – and the Wallabies were able to clear the pressure, win a penalty of their own and secure the win.Star manBerrick Barnes was the official Man of the Match for the second week in succession and he did play well, but for his form across the series Leigh Halfpenny gets my vote. His goalkicking has been exemplary in all three Tests – he missed his first one in 16 attempts in this Test and even that hit a post – while he’s safe under the high ball, has a solid boot out of hand and a dangerous running game. As Barnes said: “He’s a phenomenal kicker and a quality player around the pitch. He brings a bit of subtlety with the two big wingers in the back three.”Room for improvementThere were too many basic errors from Wales, particularly in the first half where they couldn’t control the ball at the restart, while they also need to be careful not to get isolated in attack. A few players were caught out in the first half and David Pocock was able to latch onto the ball and win Australia a penalty.Composure was again an issue for Wales towards the end when they had chances to close out the game and they will need to improve this come November if they are to get those elusive wins agains the southern hemisphere big three. Try: R Jones. Con: Halfpenny. Pens: Halfpenny 4.last_img read more

Lyngholmen / Lund Hagem

first_imgArchDaily 2012 Lyngholmen / Lund Hagem Photographs:  Courtesy of Lund HagemText description provided by the architects. Lyngholmen is an island in the archipelago in Aust Agder, the South coast of Norway. The site is situated on the threshold between the rocky landscape and the ocean. The site is sloping down towards to the south, and it has magnificent ocean views. The site is also naturally sheltered from wind by the existing vegetation and rocks yet it opens up to the evening sun.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWindowsVEKAWindows – SOFTLINE 82 ADThe key feature of the house is the roof that bridges across the existing rocks. It does not only shelter the immediate outdoor space from wind but also articulates the view towards the ocean from the house. The roof structure mediates the threshold between inside and outside and unifying between the nature and the building.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemArticulating and redefining the immediate landscape was considered important in this project. A new path was created from the house to the beach and a new jetty placed carefully without minimum disruption to the landscape. As the island is only accessible by boat, the main entrance to the house is placed on the south side to establish a gentle axis to the private beach.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemThe concealed lights in the bollards lead down to the water in the evening welcoming those arriving from the sea. The existing vegetation was also carefully preserved and the volume of the building has been defined in harmony with the surroundings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemSite restrictions and planning limitation:This project was permitted as it replaces an existing cottage from the 60’s. The new plan had to be developed in close relationship with the footprint of the existing building and all the rooms of the new plan had to fit within the 100 sqm floor area.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemSolutions:In order to maximize the usable floor area, all the circulation between the rooms was placed outside, under the one large roof. As a result, two enclosed wings are established, connected by the outdoor terrace. The main wing contains an open-plan living room and kitchen that has a direct access to the master bedroom. The other wing contains a children’s bedroom and a guest room with a study. Each room has its own entrance from the upper wooden deck.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemThe stair articulates the existing site levels and creates a threshold between the two different terraces. The stair also mediates the two material pallets, the main platform in white concrete and the upper platform in wood. The terrace is carefully positioned to be well sheltered from the wind. The roof structure stretches over the terrace to form a canopy providing sunshade. The additional storage space and the utility rooms are hidden under the articulated platforms.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemMaterials:Exterior.The roof is executed in 270mm thick reinforced concrete with 40mm VIP isolation sheets. The roof is supported by 100mm diameter steel columns place independently of the walls. The reinforcements are placed densely in order to prevent cracks. The structure itself is water resistant, thus no additional roofing materials are required. As a result the roof provides a smooth white surface creating an interesting dialogue with the rocky landscape, and gives the cabin its distinctive character.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemInterior.The choice of material is simple yet robust. White concrete, glass and ash are all carefully selected to match with the hues that are naturally found in the surrounding landscape so that the building gradually blends into its surroundings. The material pallet was narrowed down to these three, and individual materiality is enhanced and explored in the detailing. Ash was used both internally and externally. In the interior the ash is simply stained white but for the exterior the wood had to be hardened in a thermal process.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemThe window and door frames are all bespoke joinery and carefully assembled in a local joinery workshop. The concrete is also used both inside and out. The fireplace and the long bench are con¬structed with the same white concrete as the roof, the terrace and the stair.Save this picture!Courtesy of Lund HagemProject gallerySee allShow less25 rue Michel le Comte Social Housing / Atelier du PontSelected ProjectsThe Cube / Orange ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Lyngholmen / Lund HagemSave this projectSaveLyngholmen / Lund Hagem Norway Houses “COPY” 2012 Architects: Lund Hagem Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Lillesand, Norway CopyAbout this officeLund HagemOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLillesandNorwayPublished on February 08, 2016Cite: “Lyngholmen / Lund Hagem” 08 Feb 2016.

Cancer Research UK partnership with Manchester Evening News raises over £100k following charity lab fire

first_img Tagged with: corporate media A partnership between the Manchester Evening News and Cancer Research UK has raised over £104,000 for the charity following a fire at its laboratory in the city.The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute was hit by a fire in April, resulting in years of research and millions of pounds worth of specialist equipment being damaged or destroyed.Over 100 firefighters tackled the blaze at its height after around 400 scientists and support staff were led to safety. It took more than 48 hours to fully extinguish the fire, the cause of which is still being investigated.A day after fire, the Manchester Evening News (M.E.N) devoted its front page to the launch of a joint fundraising appeal with Cancer Research UK with the call:“Virtually every family in Manchester has been touched by cancer. That’s why the devastating blaze at the world-renowned Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute is not just a tragedy for scientists, researchers and patients – it’s a tragedy for us all.”The M.E.N also heavily pushed the appeal via their own website and social media channels. Within 30 minutes of it launching, Cancer Research UK’s donations website temporarily crashed due to the number of people wanting to give money to the appeal. The campaign also received support from football stars including Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville.Martin McGlown, head of Regional Media Relations at Cancer Research UK, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response from the public following the launch of our appeal with the M.E.N. We have raised over £104,000 comprising thousands of individual donations.”M.E.N Editor In Chief Rob Irvine said: Advertisement Melanie May | 20 July 2017 | News “This was a devastating fire within the grounds of The Christie Hospital, which holds a special place in the hearts of families across Manchester and the North West. Treatment at the hospital depends on pioneering work undertaken at the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, so we felt compelled to partner with the charity and throw the resources of our editorial team behind the campaign.”The M.E.N. also recently set up an appeal in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack, which has raised over £2.5m to date.  123 total views,  5 views today Cancer Research UK partnership with Manchester Evening News raises over £100k following charity lab firecenter_img  124 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
