A separate source said the team was expected in Sweden next month or early March.The IMF said late yesterday that was conducting what it called “routine” stress tests of financial systems in the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg.The EU has come under pressure after finding only a small capital shortfall among banks last year, just before spiralling problems at banks forced an international bail-out of the Irish government.The IMF’s Financial Sector Assessment Programmes, or FSAPs, were made mandatory in September for 25 “systemically important” countries, in a move to forestall a repetition of the global credit crisis.Established in 1999, they are “a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of a country’s financial sector,” according to the IMF website. The test of the UK’s top banks, including HSBC, Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group, is expected to take several weeks, sources said.The tests in all five countries will be conducted in the first quarter of this year, the IMF spokesman said.The European Banking Authority will similarly test its financial sector in a tougher repeat of last year’s health check. Some 90 banks are expected to take part and the results are due to be unveiled around July.The IMF said its tests are supposed to take place every five years. It will be the first test in Sweden in almost a decade, however. Results are expected to be published after discussions by the IMF board in the summer.

Residence for the Disabled / Atelier Zündel & Cristea

first_imgPhotographs:  Atelier Zündel & CristeaText description provided by the architects. The overall form of the building is the result of both a pragmatic approach and a determination to express the future structure’s volume in terms of “a material that fills the negative” of the site in which it rests. Facing ruelle de la Planchette, its facade in alignment with the street, the building’s upper part bends following in accordance with the authorized template ; thus softening the volume. The exterior skin, protective, smooth, thin, of a neutral color, faces the city. Facing rue de Charenton, the site’s shifting in form led us toward the use of volumes of surprising proportions, which fold into the roofing, the whole covered with the same material. Inside, the assembled mass is arranged around two courtyards planted internally, the proportions of which are reworked so as to adapt to the standards of the material that is to its need for natural lighting. The building’s coverings are treated with a playful law in their arrangement of empty surfaces and full surfaces and multicolored vertical drawings, with the intention of discretely diminishing the building’s gravity. This substantial work regarding the various thicknesses and qualities of the facades marked our determination to distance ourselves from a monotonous “establishment” image.Project gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Elbe Philharmonic Hall / Herzog and de MeuronArticlesVideo: Farewell Chapel / OFIS ArhitektiArticlesProject locationAddress:Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

He thought a garden area would be a nice addition and would also add to the townscape of Goshen.Sanders has four score or more of well-attended knockout roses that are show stoppers on Goshen’s Glenwood Road – visible evidence of his ability to make the garden a reality.Sanders presented the idea for the garden to church members and they took it and ran with him. When W.O. Sanders of Goshen retired from the ministry, he knew that he would always be involved in doing the Lord’s work. That can be done in many different ways.Whether it’s a prayer whispered on the creek bank while waiting for a fish to strike, or in a woodworking shop making a frame for a copy of a favorite scripture for a friend, there’s always something one can do.Goshen Baptist Church is Sanders’ home church and it’s also a church where he served as interim pastor for a while.Goshen Baptist Church has its own “rock of ages.” (Photo/Jaine Treadwell) Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author Book Nook to reopen By Blood Sugar Blaster Latest Stories “A cedar tree was just what we needed for the cross,” he said.And he made one.Other symbols of faith and hope found places in the garden.“In Matthew 16:18, Jesus says, ‘Upon this rock I will build my church,’ so Oscar and Patsy Sanders donated a large rock from the grounds of their home – our ‘rock of ages.’“There’s a song in the Baptist hymnal that says, ‘My anchor holds for my anchor grips the rock,’ so we wanted an anchor for the garden.”Sanders forged one.The cross, which is a symbol of faith that all Christians recognize, the ‘rock of ages’ and an anchor that grips the rock give spiritual meaning to the garden. The flowers and plants are examples of the wonders of God’s world.A place such as that is more than a garden, the church members decided. It’s a prayer garden.“We have a bench in the garden where people can come to pray, to meditate or just enjoy the beauty of God’s world,” Sanders said. “It can be used for special occasions – we just had a wedding there – or quiet reflection.And, it’s for everybody. Not just Goshen Baptist Church. The prayer garden is for silent communication with the Lord. We invite people to use it for that purpose.” “The idea of the garden was to add physical beauty to the church but it has become more than that,” Sanders said.Sanders said three church members, Cathy Wilkes, Patsy Sanders and Linda Johnson, were key in making the garden a reality and more than just a garden.“Linda laid out the design and the ladies picked out the plants to go in the garden,” he said. “Individual church members made financial contributions to the garden and they were greatly appreciated.”As the garden began to take shape, it also began to have meaning – spiritual meaning. A cross should be the focal point of a church garden so Sanders went to the woods.last_img read more

Monday with the Mayor: Ramage holds ‘town meeting’ to speak with citizens

first_img Book Nook to reopen In an effort to keep Brundidge citizens better informed about city government and issues of concern among the townspeople, Mayor Jimmy Ramage initiated “Monday with the Mayor” that followed a town meeting type format.The first Monday with the Mayor was held Monday night at the Pike County High School Fine Arts Building with 22 in attendance including three city council members, Betty Baxter, Cynthia Pearson and Margaret Ross.Ramage said the number of participants was about what he expected. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “The questions gave me an opportunity to inform people about the good things about Brundidge,” he said. “Brundidge is in good shape financially. We only owe $7 million and that’s for upgrades to our utilities and wastewater treatment facility. Not many towns the size of ours can say that. We’ve been told that Brundidge has the best credit in the state.”Ramage also expressed his pride in that Brundidge offers lower power rates than neighboring towns and cities, and in the fact that Brundidge continues to provide jobs for its citizens and those in outlying areas.Chuck Caraway, president of the Brundidge Business Association and owner of Brundidge based Southern Classic Foods, said most other towns that lost their textile industries have not been about to rebound. However, Caraway said Brundidge has been able to provide jobs for its citizens through industrial growth in other areas.Ramage said lower property values as well as lower rental property has potential business owners looking to locate in Brundidge.

CSR report highlights store’s ethical stanceOn 22 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today Slower-growing chicken, less use of pesticides, and ethical tradingpractices are features of retailer Marks & Spencer’s first corporate socialresponsibility (CSR) report. The company’s account of its social and environmental impact alsohighlighted its use of organically-grown products and the launch of the Marks& Start community programme. CSR reporting, a relatively new tool in business management, is a way ofmeasuring a company’s operations in terms of the social, environmental andethical effect they have on the wider community, and it is beginning to be seenas a essential factor in recruiting top talent. M&S’s report for the year ended 31 March focused on five areas of socialresponsibility: ethical trading, animal welfare, community programmes,sustainable raw materials and the responsible use of technology. Former chairman, Luc Vandevelde, described the past year as”challenging” and said it was fair to ask if its commitment to CSRhad waned. “The answer is emphatically ‘No’,” he said. “We believe thatthe future success of our business depends on good corporate behaviour and ourcontribution to society as a whole.” Among the changes implemented at the retailer in the past year was theintroduction of slower-growing chicken raised in living conditions designed toimprove their welfare. The company also launched its Marks & Start community programme, whichhopes to provide work experience for up to 2,500 disadvantaged people. last_img read more

IS IT TRUE MAY 2, 2019

first_imgWe hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way.IS IT TRUE we congratulate Vanderburgh County Commissioners for approving the unprecedented road repairs and paving project for our county roads?  …this massive repair and paving projects that will include around 50 miles of County roads at a 5 million dollars total cost? …this is the first time in approximately two decades that a paving and repair road project of this magnitude has been attempted?  …our County Commissioners and Council Council members pooled their financial resources to fund this massive road project without raising local taxes? …this project received a unanimous vote from County Commissions President-Ben Shoulders, Vice Chairmen-Jeff Hatfield, and Cheryl Musgrave?  …we also want to give special credit to County Highway Superintendent Scot Wichser, County Engineer John Stoll and County Council Finance Chairman Jim Raben for helping making this project a reality?IS IT TRUE that yesterday the County Commission extended the Anthem Health Insurance coverage for six months so that the “County Employee Health Insurance Study Committee” could finish their work? …we are told this decision was made in order to see if the county employees can get the best bang for their buck in regards to future health care coverage?IS IT TRUE at yesterday’s Vanderburgh/Evansville Parks and Recreation meeting, the board voted in favor of hiring six people with high-powered rifles in Wesselman Park Reserve in order to reduce the overpopulation of deer? …at the last Parks and Recreation meeting, the board voted against this proposal? …we wonder if any board members contacted the Evansville Mayor, County Commissioners or County Council members to get their opinions concerning this issue? …some people hope whoever is in charge of this search and kill the project at Wesselman Park Reserve will take into consideration the highly traveled roadways and Stockwell Sports Complex adjoining this property before firing these high power rifles at running deers in the woods?…we wonder what this project will cost? …that many people wonder why the board didn’t decide to tranquilize the deer that graze at the enclosed  Wesselman Park Reserve and transport them to a rural area where they can continue to graze and raise their young? …we are told that many people feel that it is more humane to tranquilize and transport the deer instead of annihilating them with a high power rifle?IS IT TRUE at yesterday’s Vanderburgh County Commission meeting, the Commissioners approved local #215 Teamsters to represent the employees of the County Clerk and the non-lawyers at the Prosecutors office? …the approval of these county offices to unionized are just two of the many that have been approved for collective bargaining over the last several years? …that the employees at the Vanderburgh County Clerk and Prosecutor offices will now be joining the County Auditors, Treasurers, Coroners, and the Recorders offices as the latest county Departments to be unionized? …we are told that the practice of wage disparities, favoritism, political patronage, and nepotism has taken its toll on the county employees over the years? …we are also told that employees who work for the City of Evansville are now talking about becoming members of the local #215 Teamsters?  …we are also told that the practice of wage disparities favoritism, political patronage, and nepotism has also taken its toll on the city employees over the years?IS IT TRUE yesterday a letter was sent to The CCO Editor written by a local minister from Evansville that made some serious allegations about 2nd Ward City Councilwoman Missy Mosby campaign staff? …that some of the remarks in this letter concerned us so we contacted our attorney and he advised that we shouldn’t publish it until we have confirmation and documentation of the allegations put forth in his letter? …we were also informed that Missy Mosby is now represented by legal counsel concerning this issue? …that this a developing story?IS IT TRUE that the 2nd Ward City Council primary race is really turning out to be a political barn burner? …that political newcomer, Dr. D’Angelo Taylor campaign committee is pulling out all stops to defeat the 12-year City Council incumbent Missy Mosby? … that Missy Mosby campaign committee is also doing similar to defeat political newcomer, Dr. D’Angelo Taylor? …we are told if the election turnout in the 2nd Ward is low, the challenger will have the edge?  …if the turnout is similar to years past, then the incumbent should prevail?IS IT TRUE that all eyes will be on the Republican At-Large City Council race? …earlier this year, local GOP party Chairman, Wayne Parke, chastised Republican Alex Schmitt (R) for attending his good friend Ben Trockman’s (D) announcement filing for the 1st City Council Ward seat as a Democrat? …because of Mr. Schmitt’s attendance at Mr. Trockman’s (D) filing event, the local GOP party boss has publicly encouraged the party faithful not to vote for Alex in the upcoming primary election?  …we considered this entire situation to be somewhat petty and encourage our readers to consider Mr. Schmitt’s resume and community service as the criteria to vote for him in the upcoming City Council primary election?
