Eurozone finance ministers will this week discuss Portugal’s options to solve its debt problems under a caretaker government, including whether it is capable of requesting EU financial aid, a Eurozone source said.Finance ministers from the 17 countries using the euro meet on Friday in Budapest for informal talks, which will also include the economic situation in other Eurozone countries hit by the sovereign debt crisis – Ireland and Greece.Given the unsustainably high cost of financing on the market for Lisbon, some Eurozone countries have pressured Portugal to seek a programme of financial assistance from the EU and the International Monetary Fund, like Dublin and Athens have.

Saracens stun Ospreys – Francisco Leonelli try

first_imgMonday Apr 7, 2008 Saracens stun Ospreys – Francisco Leonelli try Saracens overcame a star studded Ospreys side on Sunday to head through to the Heineken Cup Semi Finals. Saracens came out tops in an entertaining game that saw the Ospreys commit far too many errors which had Saracens capitalising on the opportunities given to them. A combination of great defensive tackling and gritted determination saw the men in black coming out victorious 19-10.The game turned shortly after half time when Neil de Kock found himself in trouble in his own 22. His hurried kick took a deflection from Marty Holah’s charge down, which instantly put all other Saracens players onside for Francisco Leonelli to score in the corner.There was a fair bit of confusion in the stadium and even for some viewers at home, but the rule is that if a kick is charged down or touched by an opposing player, all other players are put on side.Saracens will now face Munster in the Semi Finals. Note: We’ll be adding highlights of the other quarter finals in the next day or two, so stay tuned.

PivotWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersText description provided by the architects. It is the plan for a double family home in a tranquil residential area. My interest is in how the connection between the individual residence and surrounding public area is reflected to the house plan. In this house’s case there was a park adjacent to the north border of the site, so I wanted to put emphasis on the relationship between the house and the park as an everyday playground for children as well as a borrowing landscape for the house. So I put the opening with sliding doors on the north face of the building to secure the continuity of the traffic line and the view, while setting up a wider entrance and level difference so that the residents can enjoy hanami (Cherry blossom viewing) in spring from the interior of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesIn addition, the exterior environment is gradually connected to the interior through buffering spaces of the earthen-floor entrance on the north and the private garden on the south. Two households are separated by the volume housing staircase room and storage between east and west, marked off flexibly by sliding doors set on the south side between two households. These doors are often opened during the daytime, making the entire floor a mobile playground where children can freely run around across the households.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe second floor is a residential space for the child’s household. In order to fulfill 13 room demands coexisting while keeping them open to each other, the entire second floor was split into 1-tsubo (about 3.3sqm) grids, bordered by spandrel walls between the rooms. It is also planned to be a pillarless space without view obstructions by the construction project using hanging walls of 1-tsubo grids. Spandrel walls serve as loose barriers, creating a public space overlooking the entire floor when standing up, while securing private rooms hid by the walls when lying or sitting down, enabling one same space have public and private structure at the same time according to postures. The positioning of all residential rooms along the grids, except the wet area, can be altered with the growth of children, while two inner gardens assume the roles of daylighting and ventilation, connecting the interiors to the agreeable exterior environment with the swaying planting and the natural light.Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesThis plan is focused on the relationship between “The house and the surrounding area”, “Two family households” and “Public and Private in the residential space”. I was very much delighted to see these families actually live freely across both sides and our “proposals of the relationship” free from any forms or formulas rooted in their life.Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesProject gallerySee allShow lessAustralian Institute of Architects Announce 2014 National AwardsArchitecture NewsVideo: Bjarke Ingels on the Power of ArchitectureVideos Share “COPY” Construction Company: Year:  Area:  149 m² Area:  149 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeKatsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOkazakiHousesJapanPublished on November 05, 2014Cite: “House in Hanekita / Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates” 05 Nov 2014.

The said committee will have senior officials from the Delhi High Court’s IT Team, a member from National e-Governance Division (NeGD) of the Ministry of Electronics & IT, Joint Director of DU’s Computer Centre, and two members from Digilocker. The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh has further directed the said committee to finalise the following: The online link on the DU portal where the students can put in applications for issuance of their digital degree certificates. Alternatively, an e-mail address shall be provided where the Petitioners and similarly placed candidates can write an e-mail to obtain their degree certificates The timeline after receipt of the said email for verification and issuance of the degree certificate with the digital signature; Template for the degree certificate to be issued by email; Official to be responsible for affixing the digital signature and issuance of the same; A sample degree certificate in favour of one of the Petitioners, duly signed with the digital signature, shall also be generated; Timelines for transmission of past data to Digilocker from DU; Timelines for transmission of data periodically to Digilocker so that students can easily access their certificates, transcripts, marksheets, awards etc. The order has come in a plea moved by medical graduates who are awaiting their degree certificates since 2018. The said graduates need their degree certificates by August 15 to get their registrations on the ECFMG platform in order to be able to sit in the USMLE examination for post graduate studies in the US. In the previous hearing, the court had directed the Delhi University to come up with a mechanism to provide digital degree certificates to students having digital signatures. Highly dissatisfied with the mechanism placed before the court by the University, the court noted that: ‘Despite sufficient time being made available, it is clear that DU is not taking adequate steps to set up the process for issuance of digital degree certificates. There is a completely callous attitude being reflected towards the plight of students. A request is made for adjourning the matter for tomorrow to place a better scheme on record. This Court feels that the same would be completely futile as considerable time has already lapsed without any positive steps being taken by the DU.’ The court further noted that the procedure put forward by DU for obtaining degree certificates is too complicated and makes it difficult for students to obtain their degrees. The court said: ‘Obtaining a degree, which should have been a cause of celebration, has been turned into a complete nightmare for all these doctors who ought to have been busy rendering medical services during the pandemic. Despite the Court’s best effort, DU is not placing a proper protocol on record.’ Therefore, the court has constituted a committee and entrusted it with powers to come up with a mechanism to provide digital degree certificates to students. The status report in this regard has to be submitted by August 07. The Petitioners in this case are being represented by Mr Sarthak Maggon. Case Title: Akshita Khosla v.

Special CBI Judge Geetanjali Goel granted bail to KD Singh subject to furnishing of personal bond in the sum of Rs. 5 lakhs with two sureties of like amount. A case was registered against Singh by ED under Prevention of Money Laundering Act. Singh was thereafter arrested by ED on 12th January 2021, was remanded to ED’s custody and was then sent to judicial custody. Various FIRs were registered in Kolkata alleging that Singh along with other persons entered into criminal conspiracy and in furtherance of it, cheated investors by fraudulently collecting money in the guise of agents with the false assurance of high return on maturity. These FIRs formed basis of ED’s investigation in the case. It was also alleged that Singh induced people to invest in various schemes but after the maturity, did not return the amount, thereby committing cheating. Moreover, it was then revealed that around Rs.444.67 crores approximately were raised from investors from different States in India by issuing redeemable preference shares by Alchemist Holdings Limited from 2005 onwards by luring them with high rate of interest on their investments after maturity. It was also alleged that the funds so raised from the investors were not used for the intended purposes and were diverted/ siphoned off into the Group companies of Alchemist Group. ED while issuing provisional attachment order in 2019 attached various properties Alchemist Group, association of which was vehemently denied by Singh. The bail application was filed by Singh under sec. 439 of CrPC averring that is was a “victim of grave persecution and harassment” and that the actions of ED were violative of his fundamental right to life and liberty as guaranteed by Art. 21 of the Constitution. It was also submitted that he was neither a director nor a shareholder nor any other office bearer of the said companies which were the subject matter of the investigation Alchemist Infra Realty Ltd, Alchemist Township India Ltd. and Alchemist Holdings Ltd. Noting that Singh has been in custody since 12th January 2021, the Court observed thus: “In the instant case, the applicant/ accused is in custody since 12.01.2021. Nothing has been placed on record to show that the applicant/ accused is a flight risk nor it was so specifically argued on behalf of ED. The applicant/ accused is a former Parliamentarian.” Moreover, the Court also observed that Singh had appeared before ED several times and his statements have also been recorded by ED. Furthermore, the Court also went ahead to observe that the correctness of the allegations as to whether Singh had received and laundered proceeds of crimes can only be looked into during the course of trial which is likely to take time. “However, the complaint has already been filed and the statement of the witnesses under Section 50 PMLA has already been recorded. Further necessary conditions can be put in this regard and any such effort by the applicant/ accused may lead to cancellation of bail. The applicant/ accused is aged about 61 years and has deep roots in the society. In view of the above discussion and considering the facts and circumstances of the case, the applicant/ accused Kanwar Deep Singh is admitted to bail on furnishing personal bond in the sum of Rs.5 lakhs with two sureties of the like amount..” the Court observed while granting bail to Singh.

At the news conference, they detailed what they say happened in excruciating detail.They allege that Clarisa Figueroa posted an offer of free baby clothes on a Facebook page called “Help a Mother Out,” which they described as a group that offers access to baby items for “families in need,” and that Ochoa-Lopez responded to the post and arranged to meet Figueroa at her Chicago-area home.Desiree Figueroa is alleged to have distracted Ochoa-Lopez with a photo album of Clarisa Figueroa’s dead adult son so that Clarisa Figueroa could strangle the teen with a cable.At one point, Ochoa-Lopez was able to slip her fingers between her neck and the cable, keeping herself from being strangled, and, according to Murphy, this prompted the elder Figueroa to yell at her daughter, “you’re not doing your f—— job!”“Defendant Desiree then stepped up and began to peel the victim’s fingers from the cable one by one,” Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy told reporters.Clarisa and Desiree Figueroa have been charged with murder, while Clarisa Figueroa’s 40-year-old boyfriend Piotr Bobak has been charged with helping to cover up the alleged crime. All three appeared in Cook County Court Friday and were denied release on bail.Julie Contreras, the spokeswoman for Ochoa-Lopez’s family, said that the family is asking for “justice for Marlen.”“Today is a sad day. Today is a day of anguish that this family is living through. A nightmare, a horror film,” Contreras told reporters at court.Murphy said that following Ochoa-Lopez’s murder, Clarisa Figueroa brought the baby to a nearby hospital, where it was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit. Clarisa Figueroa then allegedly formed a GoFundMe page in an effort to raise money for the baby, who she was passing off as her own.Bobak shared a link to the fundraiser on his Facebook page, Murphy said.When police arrived at Figueroa’s house on May 14 to execute a search warrant, police reportedly saw Bobak cleaning a rug with bleach.Police later found Ochoa-Lopez’s body in a trash can on the property. Investigators believe the murder took place on April 23.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Supercooling points of insects and mites on the Antarctic Peninsula

first_img1. Mean supercooling points of eleven species of arthropods (three Collembola, seven Acari and one Diptera) ranged from ‐6.2 to ‐9.4°C (high group), and from ‐17.7 to ‐31.0°C (low group). The majority of individuals in the high group had food in their gut systems. 2. Freezing was lethal to all species examined except larval Belgica antarctica Jacobs (Chironomidae). 3. Glucose, glycerol and mannitol were found in low concentrations in extracts of Ctyptopygus antarcticus Willem (Collembola) and larvae of B. antarcrica; it is udikely that these substances had a major effect on the supercooling of either species. 4. Two Collembola species possessed significantly (P< 0.05) lower supercooling points at locations on the Antarctic Pensinsula than at Signy Island, South Orkney Islands. The converse was observed for two species of Acari. 5. It is suggested that whilst gross climatic and also micro‐habitat conditions may influence the cold hardiness of such arthropods, especially seasonally, their full supercooling ability is rarely tested.last_img read more
