The directive, agreed in Luxembourg yesterday afternoon, will force alternative funds to comply with a costly registration regime, as well as subjecting them to restrictions on remuneration and tougher capital requirements. All alternative funds, including property funds, will have to comply. However, the new regime will enable fund managers to market their funds across the 27-member EU bloc rather than applying for individual permission from each member state.And in an important victory for London’s hedge fund industry – most of which is based offshore for tax purposes – these pan-European marketing rights will be made available to non-EU funds that apply for a “passport”. The French had wanted to force non-EU funds to apply for marketing rights from each individual member state, which would have proven too costly and burdensome for some smaller firms. However, the new passport scheme will not be up and running until two years after the rules come into force, most likely around 2015. Until then, funds will need to apply for marketing rights on a country-by-country basis. France had also wanted the passport scheme to be policed by the new Paris-based European Securities and Markets Authority, but this demand was again vetoed by other finance ministers. Once funds have received authorisation from a national regulator, in Britain’s case the FSA, they will be given an EU-wide passport. Mark Hoban, the financial secretary to the Treasury, said the final set of rules were a “good outcome for the sector and investors”. “Given where we were in May, when we picked up a hospital pass from the previous government, this is a good agreement,” he told City A.M. And trade body AIMA also said the impact of the text agreed by finance ministers yesterday would be “be far less severe than” first thought. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tuesday 19 October 2010 8:23 pm whatsapp Read This NextThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

first_imgFriday Jun 21, 2013 Lead up to the First Test – The Lions Story so far We’re all set to go in Brisbane as the Wallabies host the Lions in the first Test on Saturday. The jersey presentation took place earlier, with Sam Warburton saying that it’s the biggest moment of his career. Here’s a quick look at the tour so far. The Lions are looking to achieve a series win in Australia for the first time since 1989, and a Lions series win for the first time since 1997, when they won in South Africa.They were five from five this year before their loss to the Brumbies, but are in confident mood and despite a few injuries, have a good mix that are certainly capable of beating the Wallabies.Captained by Sam Warburton, the Lions also have the experience of former captains Brian O’Driscoll and Paul O’Connell to call on when the going gets tough, and have plenty of fire power out side, with George North in particular one to watch.Warburton and the rest of the matchday squad had the honour of receiving their jerseys from none other than Lions legend Sir Ian McGeechan.“I have been thinking about Saturday since I was 14-years-old. It will be the biggest moment of my career, without a doubt,” said Warbutron as he reflected on receiving the famous jersey.“I found myself kissing my Lions jersey the other day as I was packing it up for another flight. It was the one I wore for the first half of my debut against Queensland Reds.”A quiet captain that leads from the front on the field, Warburton has revealed that he’ll leave the pre-match inspirational stuff for some of the more vocal leaders amongst the group.“I usually sit down on the bench and listen to my music, and I let the louder members of the squad be more vocal in gearing the boys up. So tomorrow, guys like Paul O’Connell, Brian O’Driscoll and Alun Wyn Jones will be doing that.“I let them have their input and then I will finish things off just before we go out.”Below is an excellent look at the tour so far.

The site is located in a flat residential quarter in the Southwest of Hiroshima City. As the site is from all sides surrounded by houses, one of which is directly bordering the site boundary, it was necessary to come up with the following architectural arrangement. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoTo create a bright and wide space while protecting one’s privacy despite the site’s restrictions, a wall wraps around the full site creating a ‘void’ on the north side while respecting the permitted floor area ratio. The north orientated living space is extended by a terrace, which is located adjacent to the parking space while facing the street to the north. In addition, considering the natural sunlight conditions for the neighboring house to the west, a pitched roof was chosen and a v-shaped wall is surrounding the ‘void’ on the east side. As a result, sunlight shines into the void in the morning and a ‘sunlight well’ is created. The collected sunlight is reflected by a white wall, and illuminates the room gently. In the early morning, sunlight enters the void from the east. As the sun rises further it shines through the upper window, and when the sun begins to decline light falls through the skylights. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThus, as the way the light enters constantly changes from sunrise to sunset, the space changes with the flow of time. When the night comes, the diagonally cut wall appears while the scenery around it disappears. A space different to the daytime emerges. The external void space is perceived as an extension of the internal space, while the wrap-around wall is both protecting the privacy of the residence space against the surroundings and creating a spacious impression. The sky can be seen from the bathroom on first floor, while the car can be overlooked from the master bedroom. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe entrance for both residents and car is facing the road to the north and is formed by a part of the wall which can be opened and shut providing access to the void space. The sky framed by a diagonal wall extends to the top and an ash tree with a height of 6m penetrates the second floor terrace. This north side buffer zone, although not included in the legal building footprint, plays a role in maximizing the site’s potential.

The order has been passed by Justice Sheel Nagu of the Gwalior Bench, while observing that the human resource in shape of young-aged Appellants could be utilized for the betterment of the society and to ward off the crises. “Undoubtedly, the appellants are young/middle aged/able bodied responsible citizens. In the present time where the entire humanity is struggling to survive against the Covid-19 pandemic the governmental machinery is experiencing extreme shortage of hands in the process of disaster management, the appellants as citizens of nation are obliged to assist the govt. in times of this deep crises by discharging their fundamental duty enshrined under Article 51-A(d),” Justice Nagu observed. Accordingly he imposed the following condition, “The appellants shall register themselves with the District Magistrate, Guna as “Covid-19 Warriors” by entering their names in a Register named as COVID-19 WARRIOR REGISTER. The appellants then, shall be assigned work of Covid-19 disaster management at the discretion of District Magistrate Guna by taking all prescribed precautions. The nature, quantum and duration of the work assigned is left to the the wisdom of District Magistrate, Guna. This Court expects that the appellants shall rise to the occasion to serve the society in this time of crises to discharge their fundamental duty of rendering national service when when call upon to do so as per Article 51-A(d) of the constitution.” The court was hearing an appeal against the order passed by the Special Judge (Atrocities), whereby the application preferred by the present Appellants u/S 439 of CrPC had been rejected. Setting aside the impugned order, the court observed, “trial is not likely to conclude in the near future and prolonged pre-trial detention being an anathema to the concept of liberty, this court is inclined to extend the benefit of bail to the appellants.” The court noted that the Appellants did not appear to have any criminal antecedents nor any material placed was on record to disclose the possibility of the Appellants fleeing from justice. Therefore, the court directed that the Appellant be released on bail on furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs.50,000/- each with one solvent surety of the like amount to the satisfaction of the concerned Trial Court.

first_imgABC News(PANAMA CITY, Fla.) — A Florida community that was devastated by Hurricane Michael was surprised Tuesday with $50,000 worth of donated toys to distribute to local kids for Christmas.“You just all made our Christmas special,” said Mike Jones, known as “Salvage Santa” in his Panama City community. “It’s going to benefit our community so much, in other ways you don’t know about. It’s going to bring things here that we need.”“Merry Christmas,” Jones added, choking back tears.The toy donation, made by “Good Morning America” sponsor SAP, came just as Panama City is trying to rebuild from Michael, the most powerful storm to hit the Florida Panhandle, that tore through Panama City in October, destroying nearly everything in its way.One local mom’s Facebook post, lamenting how ill-prepared the community was for Christmas, went viral this month, capturing the mood of the community ahead of the holidays.“There’s nothing left intact. Nothing,” she wrote. “We lost 20,000-plus homes. We have people in tents … My kids need to see that Santa still came even though their chimneys are gone.”Jones is known in Panama City as “Salvage Santa” because for the past 39 years he has saved Christmas for local children by restoring old and broken toys and gifting them to kids in need. This year, he stepped up his efforts in the wake of Hurricane Michael with an event named “Salvage Christmas.”Even before Tuesday’s $50,000 surprise donation, Jones had already collected around 900 bicycles and more than 10,000 toys for local children, storing them in a local church.“Even though we’re in a building right now that doesn’t have a ceiling in it right above me, and the carpets all wet and torn out … look at the toys in here on the shelves,” Jones said. “The parents they come here, they get the spirit when they get to shop, there’s no cash register here, everything that you see in this room behind me is free.”He continued, “They get to pick out what they want for their kids and go out the door and that raises their spirits, their morale. There are so many kids that wouldn’t get Christmas if we didn’t do this.”Everyone in the community is involved, including 9-year-old Lyra Floore, who sold $700 worth of handmade ornaments and donated all of it to “Salvage Christmas.”“The Christmas wish that I hope for this year is that everyone gets the presents that they need,” Lyra told “GMA.”Ilea Faircloth, the principal of Springfield Elementary School, one of the local schools destroyed in the storm, told “GMA” that the community still looks like a “war zone.”“When you walk around our neighborhoods and when you drive down our streets, it looks like a war zone,” Faircloth said. “And it just sucks the happy out of everything.”Faircloth added that her dream is for the community to be able to come together on Christmas and to be able to forget about the storm.“I hope that the kids wake up … on Christmas morning and just are happy,” Faircloth said. “And just forget that there was ever a hurricane even if it’s just for a few minutes.”SAP, the “GMA” sponsor that made the $50,000 donation, said Jones and the entire community of Panama City deserve the help.“He deserves it and the community deserves it,” said Alicia Tillman, chief marketing officer for SAP. “This is a community that was devastated by Hurricane Michael and without communities we have no prosperity and we have no innovation, which is core to SAP.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgOne of the most remarkable features of contemporary oceanic climate change is the warming and contraction of Antarctic Bottom Water over much of global ocean abyss. These signatures represent changes in ventilation mediated by mixing and entrainment processes that may be location-specific. Here we use available data to document, as best possible, those mixing processes as Weddell Sea Deep and Bottom Waters flow along the South Orkney Plateau, exit the Weddell Sea via Orkney Passage and fill the abyssal Scotia Sea. First, we find that an abrupt transition in topography upstream of Orkney Passage delimits the extent of the coldest waters along the Plateau’s flanks and may indicate a region of especially intense mixing. Second, we revisit a control volume budget by Heywood et al. (Nature, 2002) for waters trapped within the Scotia Sea after entering through Orkney Passage. This budget requires extremely vigorous water mass transformations with a diapycnal transfer coefficient of 39(±10) × 10-4 m2 s–1. Evidence for such intense diapycnal mixing is not found in the abyssal Scotia Sea interior and, while we do find large rates of diapycnal mixing in conjunction with a downwelling Ekman layer on the western side of Orkney Passage, it is insufficient to close the budget. This leads us to hypothesize that the Heywood budget is closed by a boundary mixing process in which the Ekman layer associated with the Weddell Sea Deep Water boundary current experiences relatively large-vertical-scale overturning associated with tidal forcing along the southern boundary of the Scotia Sea.
