Structural reform needed, says Bank

first_img TOO big to fail banking institutions are “a paradox that must be tackled,” the Bank of England said today in its final quarterly report of the year.The “social costs” of failure amid large global banks have led to considerations of structural reform, the Bank said. The Independent Commission on Banking and Financial Stability Board has been tasked with looking into possible reforms.Three of UK’s largest banks have assets in excess of annual GDP, the report says. “Too important to fail banks may be subject to less market discipline, and are likely to grow more rapidly and become more dependent on debt funding – and more highly interconnected and leveraged,” they said.

Top 14 Highlights – Round 3

first_imgTuesday Sep 8, 2009 Top 14 Highlights – Round 3 We’re playing catchup after such a busy time in the rugby world, as the Guinness Premiership and Magners League both kicked off this past weekend, as well as Tri Nations, Currie Cup, and Air New Zealand Cup matches.From the Top 14 though, we have a clip for you that has highlights from three of the better matches in Round 3.Two tries from Montpellier wing Jaques Bousuge and a drop goal from Francois Trinh-Duc had them leading Stade Francais, but Stade came back with a great try to Mark Gasnier.Mirco Bergamasco then evened up the score in the second half, before lock Pascale Pape crossed, and Gasnier scored again to seal the comfortable win.Bourgoin picked up their first win of the season by beating Biarritz 22-17 at the Stade Pierre-Rajon. South African prop Eduard Coetzee scored a great front rowers try for Biarittz, but it was not enough to keep them in the match as Benjamin Boyet slotted a penalty and a 45m drop to deal the win for Bourgoin.The heavyweight clash of the weekend was Toulouse against Perpignan, as Toulouse hoped to beat the defending champions away for the first time in twenty years.It was an intensely physical battle, with Perpignan centre Maxime Mermoz scoring the games only try. 17-15 to Perpignan is how it ended.

Located in the center of Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam, Binh Thanh House was designed for two families; a couple in their sixties, their son, his wife and a child.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe plot has a bilateral character, one is facing to a noisy and dusty street in a typical developing and urbanizing area in the city and one is very close to a canal and Saigon Zoo with plenty of greenery.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAgainst a backdrop of this duality of its setting, the concept of the house is to accommodate two different lifestyles in a tropical climate; a modern and well-tempered lifestyle with mechanical equipments such as air-conditioners, and a natural and traditional lifestyle, utilizing natural lighting and ventilation with water and greenery.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe house is composed of two different spaces positioned alternately. Spaces for modern lifestyle are allocated in three floating volumes wrapped by concrete pattern blocks. And the spaces between these three volumes are widely open to the exterior and allocated for the natural lifestyle where the residents enjoy wind, sunlight, green and water.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThree volumes are shifted back and forth to bring natural light into the in-between spaces, as well as to create small gardens on each floor. The bottoms of the volumes become the ceilings for the in-between spaces. These surfaces are designed with various curved shapes, providing each in-between space with different lighting effects.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiBedrooms and other small rooms are contained in the floating semi-closed volumes to enhance security and privacy. On the other hand, the open in-between spaces are designed to be independent living spaces for two families.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiPattern blocks, which used to be a popular shading device in Vietnam to get natural ventilation, are made of pre-cast concrete with 60cm width and 40cm height. It not only prevents the harsh sunlight and heavy rain but also enhances the privacy and the safety.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiWhile this house looks different from the stereotypical townhouses in Ho Chi Minh City, all the architectural solutions are derived from the local lifestyle and wisdom.

Austin Dillon Captures Truck Trophy in Pocono

first_img By Gary Truitt – Aug 4, 2014 Facebook Twitter SHARE The competition has been a good one – some say the best in a decade – as Dillon has duked it out with fellow rookie Kyle Larson. As they have competed hard against each other, they both are on the door-step of carving out one of the 16 spots in the race for the chase where the Sprint Cup Champion will be determined. SHARE Home Energy Austin Dillon Captures Truck Trophy in Pocono Previous articleDuPont Brings Ag Technology Message to Indiana State FairNext article4-H Animals Benefit from Coliseum and Youth Arena Gary Truitt Ethanol supporters behind American Ethanol hitched a ride with Dillon three years ago as we he was just emerging as a household name in the sport. The move has proven to be a good one, with Dillon moving through the ranks of NASCAR’s finest, first winning the truck series in 2010, capturing the intermediate Nationwide title last year, and now vying for Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year honors. American Ethanol spokesman Austin Dillon made a diversion on his way to racing for a slot in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Championship this weekend, and the shortcut in Pocono landed him another trophy for his collection. Dillon, who finds himself in a real tussle for rookie of the year honors in NASCAR’s top division, did a little warm-up race in the Camping World Truck Series Saturday where he smoked his tires right into Victory Lane. The feat accomplished three things: it reminded people how the rising race star got to be the truck champion in 2010; the win in a Chevy truck ended Toyota’s 12-race winning streak in the series; and it showcased American Ethanol, which was displayed on the side of his truck. Dillon scored his sixth career Truck Series win by surviving a green-white-checkered finish. Facebook Twitter Austin Dillon Captures Truck Trophy in Pocono Dillon returned to the track Sunday where he sported a full American Ethanol paint out for the 6 million fans watching on television, and turned in a 13th place finish. “2014 has certainly been an incredible year for NCGA in terms of membership thus far,” said NCGA President Martin Barbre. “It is energizing to see our rolls grow as farmers take an active role in shaping their future together. With major issues surrounding the RFS, farm bill implementation and pending regulations on the horizon, we will need the strength of all of our members, the true grassroots, to continue pushing us to greater heights year after year.” last_img read more

Inferences of ocean currents from seismic streamer position data

first_imgThis paper describes the first attempt to infer ocean currents from the shapes of seismic streamers using real data. It demonstrates that it is feasible to infer the ocean currents, using a total least-squares solution at each shotpoint, when there is no lateral steering. There are some artefacts in the inferred currents when there is lateral steering; this is believed to be caused by errors in estimating the streamer velocity. This paper describes the residual equations that form the cost function and discusses how to choose weights in the cost function based on physical criteria. Correctly choosing weights is something of an art and requires further research to make automatic and robust.last_img
