first_img Share whatsapp Tags: NULL THE iPad 2 isn’t released in the UK until tomorrow but rumours are already circulating about its successor.Sources yesterday claimed the iPad 3 could be released as soon as September this year. This could spell disaster for iPad rivals such as HP’s TouchPad, which is slated for release in the summer. Its specifications already fall short of the iPad 2 and a new generation Apple tablet being released within weeks could kill it off.Analysts are predicting the iPad 3 will have an ultra-sharp retina display similar to that on the iPhone 4 and hardware could include an NFC chip for mobile payments. Other possible additions include a Thunderbolt port, which would appease those who have lobbied for a USB connection, and an SD card reader.Also being dragged through the rumour mill is the iPhone 5, which is expected to be released in June. Sources in China have hinted it could feature a four inch screen – moving closer to the monster 4.3 inch screen on the Samsung Galaxy S II.Apple boss Steve Jobs also insisted that he has no plans to kill off the iPod Classic, which was not revamped when a new range of iPods were released in September last year.

See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 1st March, 2020 How would you like an extra £2,000 of savings? At first, this statement might seem too good to be true. There’s usually a catch when free money is on offer. However, on this occasion, there isn’t. All you need to do is open two Lifetime Individual Savings Accounts (LISAs) over the next two months to qualify for £2,000 in free cash.Free cashLISAs were first introduced by the government a few years ago to help retirement savers and first-time buyers. They lets you save £4k a year towards your first home, or retirement. The government adds a 25% bonus on top of what you save. So, if you take the full £4,000 allowance, the government will add an extra £1,000.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The one draw-back is that you can only use the cash for two purposes, retirement or the purchase of a first home. If you withdraw the money for any other reason, you’ll have to pay a penalty of 25%. This means you’ll not only lose your government bonus, but an extra 6.25% on top.The LISA allowance renews at the beginning of every tax year. That’s 6 April. As such, in the next two months, savvy savers could open two of these products. This could unlock as much as £2,000 of free government cash in the process.Higher returnsEven if you only have a few £100 saved, it’s worth opening one of these products if you’re serious about saving for the future. A 25% return on your money in just a few weeks is extremely attractive. You’re unlikely to get this sort of return anywhere else.What’s more, any money saved in the ISA doesn’t attract further income or capital gains taxes. That makes it one of the best long-term savings products.Indeed, since inception three-and-a-half decades ago, the FTSE 250 has returned around 10% per annum. While it’s difficult to tell what the market will do in the short term, it’s highly likely that, in the long run, the FTSE 250 will yield similar returns to its historical average.As such, if an investor puts £4,000 into a LISA, and then invested this money (including a £1,000 government bonus) in an FTSE 250 tracker fund, it could grow to be worth £13.5k within 10 years. That’s assuming an average annual rate of return of 10% and no further contributions.A saver who takes the government up on its £2k free cash offer in the next two months could turn contributions of £8,000 into £27,000 after 10 years. That’s assuming an average annual return of 10%.These numbers show why opening two LISAs over the next few weeks could revolutionise your financial situation. The free government cash could jump-start your savings journey. If the money is invested in a low-cost passive tracker fund, it could grow into a substantial financial nest egg during the next decade. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Canon Kenneth Kearon as the new bishop of Limerick and Killaloe. He succeeds the Rt. Rev. Trevor Williams who retired at the end of July this year.Kearon is secretary general of the Anglican Communion, a position he has held since 2005. Born in 1953, Kearon is a native of Dublin. Educated at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), he served his curacy in All Saints Raheny and St John’s Coolock, before becoming dean of residence at TCD in 1984, a position he held until 1990. He was rector of the Parish of Tullow (Dublin) from 1991 to 1999 after which he became director of the Irish School of Ecumenics (1999-2005). Kearon is a canon of Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin and an honorary provincial canon of Canterbury Cathedral, St. Paul’s Cathedral London and St. George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem.The Most Rev. Michael Jackson, archbishop of Dublin, said, “Canon Kearon has expressed his delight at returning to work in Ireland and his intention to serve the people of Limerick and Killaloe and the communities of which they are a part. I have known Canon Kearon for many years and have always appreciated his personal friendship. I wish Kenneth and Jennifer all that is best within the love of God in their time in Limerick and Killaloe.”The bishop-elect said: “I am honored and delighted to have been elected to the Diocese of Limerick and Killaloe, and I look forward to getting to know the diocese, its people and its clergy well in the near future. Ireland has been through a very difficult period in its history, and I look forward to helping the diocese play its part and making its contribution to shaping the future. This diocese has made a distinctive contribution to the Church of Ireland in the past, in part through the work of its bishops and most recently through Bishop Trevor Williams, and I hope to be able to continue in their footsteps.”Following approval by the House of Bishops, the bishop-elect will be consecrated as a bishop on a date to be determined.

Located at a newly built residential complex in the southwestern outskirts of Daejeon City, the Urban Hamlet is built for four children and their parents. The design uses a novel approach to the use of form and space by experimenting with the significance of what is private and public in a way that captures the needs and the essence of the modern family.Save this picture!Courtesy of Namsun LeeThe house consists of three levels, where the first and third contain rooms that serve specific functions and the entire second floor is an open multipurpose space. On the first floor surrounding a patio are a garage, laundry room, living room, kitchen, dining room, and a guest room that doubles as a tea room and other multipurpose spaces. On the third floor, six duplex bedrooms surround a shared family room which connects to a jacuzzi and an open terrace swimming pool that faces the mountains to the south. In each of the bedrooms, the upper level of the duplex leads to a small rooftop space for family gatherings. The entire second floor is an open area whose ceiling weight is supported by a core that contains the elevator and stairs. This core is covered by media shelves, a tv stand, fireplace, projector screen, and a desk.Save this picture!Courtesy of Namsun LeeAs the boundaries between home and modern life become blurred, and individuality and alienation become more common traits among those in today’s communities, there is a need to address how this will transform social interaction at all levels of society. Residential architecture is no exception. It must create more than just ‘living machines’, as it is tasked with helping people navigate through what it means to be in a modern family. During the approximately twenty years that it takes for the children to come of age, the house must be more than a living machine that supplies function and comfort. It must also be a vessel that holds its inhabitants’ most cherished memories and a facilitator of the relationships between each family member.Save this picture!Courtesy of Namsun LeeIt is generally the case that family residences contain individual spaces such as bedrooms, shared areas such as the dining room, and spaces for recreation and leisure. As the title Urban Hamlet would suggest, these individual spaces are small houses in their own right, with their own small roofs and forming a small village perched on the main roof of the house. The individual roofs form a boundary that respects the privacy of each family member, allowing them to maintain their personal and independent worlds within their bedroom. Even so, these worlds congregate as a small community centered on a part of the main roof that bears resemblance to a village plaza.Save this picture!PlansSave this picture!SecitonSuch a foundation for a community of love and respect is complemented by the second floor, where the open space provides full immersion with nature via an unobstructed, panoramic view of the landscape. To understand the function of this area, one must look not to western notions of living, dining and kitchen spaces (LDK) where the three are distinct, but to classical Korean architecture where the boundaries between LDK are blurred. The second floor is in a sense a daecheongmaru, which was traditionally used as an open-air space connecting the bedrooms, a dining room for the family during hot summers and a reception area for guests. It is where parents did laundry by hand, where children napped or read, etc., where each generation shared the same space and the western notion of separating living, dining and cooking did not apply. In a modern context, the room is multipurpose in every sense of the word. The media core which is placed in this floor may be an antidote to a widening generation gap, as those who are used to playing on electronic devices, watching tv, and doing leisurely activities that involve neither, will all be using the same space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Namsun LeeIn the Urban Hamlet, the vertical circulation is condensed as if it were a daecheongmaru rotated 90 degrees and fitted with a glass box. Just as the daecheongmaru connects different rooms and provides a horizontal view of the surrounding world, this glass box connects the floors and displays a vertical panorama that spans the sky. The result is a vertical space that is vacant but seems full, owing to an unboundedness that gives the impression from the inside that it is a part of the natural landscape.Save this picture!Courtesy of Namsun LeeThe urban hamlet is thus a vessel for the memories of a family’s first 20 years, a temporal microcosm that goes beyond simple physical architectural function to also oversee the drama of everyday life; it is a space that allows its inhabitants to preserve the modern family’s closeness within itself and connectedness to the outside world.Save this picture!Courtesy of Namsun LeeProject gallerySee allShow lessJubako House / Meguro Architecture LaboratorySelected ProjectsAtelier Kampot / Bloom ArchitectureSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Urban Hamlet / Chiasmus Partnerslast_img read more

In a story he wrote for Boukraat Daou’ in October, he criticised the Central Commission for Control and Investigation and said it should be under the control of parliament rather than the prime minister.Muhyiddin told Reporters Without Borders he was surprised by the ban as he did not write for the government media. “They are doing this in order to upset me and scare my colleagues,” he said. Four libel suits have been brought against him in the past three months, he said, adding that he goes to the courts at least twice a week.The trial of journalist Rashid Issa of the daily Tishrin on a libel charge is meanwhile due to start before a court in Damascus tomorrow. Tarek Hokan, the legal representative of the Syrian Centre for Media and Press Freedom, said Issa had not been officially notified of the case, which is the result of a complaint brought by a state theatre director he accused of fraud in an article in September. In the past few months, Aleppo-based investigative reporter Waddah Muhyiddin has been the target of four libel actions and a ban on writing for the state-owned media. “Journalists who write about corruption are particularly vulnerable and are exposed to legal action of which the outcome is rarely favourable,” Reporters Without Borders said.

first_img Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 16, 2021 Twitter Local NewsBusiness AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 16, 2021– Indeed, the world’s number one job site, today announced a partnership with Emmy Award-winning writer, creator and actor Lena Waithe and her company Hillman Grad Productions to create the ‘Rising Voices’ initiative which showcases the power of how jobs change our world. Rising Voices will uncover, invest in and share stories created by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) filmmakers & storytellers around the singular theme of the meaning of work, and the idea that jobs can change us all. A creative call to filmmakers will begin today, with 10 finalists to be selected by the end of February. “Our mission at Hillman Grad Productions is to provide opportunities for the filmmakers that Hollywood has ignored, support the talent that hasn’t had access to the business, and advocate for the artists who aren’t on studio lists,” stated Lena Waithe, CEO of Hillman Grad Productions. “We’re proud to partner with Indeed on the Rising Voices initiative to mentor the next generation of directors and give them real funding to get their films made.” The selection committee, composed of executives from Hillman Grad Productions, Indeed and directors via creative studio Ventureland, will select 10 screenplays submitted by filmmakers, awarding each a $10,000 writing fee. From there, the 10 finalists will receive a total production budget of $1 million, $100,000 per film, plus a dedicated line production crew through Hillman Grad and 271 Films to produce a short film (under 15 mins). Each film will be allocated an additional $25,000 COVID budget to ensure the safety of the cast and crew. Waithe will serve as a mentor to the filmmakers throughout this process, with additional guidance provided by an advisory panel featuring Rishi Rajani, president, Hillman Grad Productions; LaFawn Davis, Group VP of ESG, Indeed; and PRETTYBIRD filmmakers Calmatic, Paul Hunter and Melina Matsoukas through her De La Revolución Films banner. “Lena Waithe is one of the most influential voices in the film industry, a trailblazer for underrepresented filmmakers and entertainers, and we are thrilled to partner with her,” said Indeed CEO Chris Hyams. “Indeed’s mission is to help people get jobs. We know that talent is universal, but opportunity is not equally distributed. Together with Hillman Grad Productions, we know ‘Rising Voices’ will provide an extraordinary opportunity to historically underrepresented talent.” At least one film will be selected for use in a national TV advertisement for Indeed, while one or more filmmakers will be offered an additional $75,000 budget to create new work for Indeed as a non-exclusive filmmaker in residence. “We created Rising Voices to help lower the barriers for filmmakers, and to showcase these stories in their own voice,” said Indeed’s LaFawn Davis. “We are particularly excited to partner with Hillman Grad Productions, whose mentorship will provide filmmakers experience and a path to a sustainable career beyond one single film.” Filmmakers interested in participating should visit: About Indeed More people find jobs on Indeed than anywhere else.
