first_img whatsapp G7 tries to put brakes on yen Thursday 17 March 2011 9:39 pm MAJOR central banks agreed to co-ordinate action to drive the yen lower last night in a desperate bid to stem the yen’s rapid rise.The extraordinary move comes after the yen surged to a record 76.25 against the dollar – fuelling fears that Japan’s economy, already crippled by last week’s earthquake and tsunami, would suffer further as its goods became less competitive.“Given yen moves after the tragic events that hit Japan, the United States, Britain, Canada and the European Central Bank have agreed with Japan to jointly intervene in the currency market,” finance minister Yoshihiko Noda said following an emergency meeting of the Group of Seven (G7) nations.Japanese authorities will buy US dollar/yen in the market today. Other central banks will act when their markets open, Noda said. But he declined to comment on the size of Tokyo’s intervention.The US dollar spiked immediately after the annoucement, rising about two yen to above 81 yen immediately after the announcement which came as markets opened. And Japanese stocks were also boosted – with the Nikkei jumping three per cent in the first hour of trading. “This is not just one central bank, this is seven. It’s a brave man to be on the other side of that trade,” said Rochford Capital managing director Thomas Averill. Tokyo last intervened in the currency market on 15 September last year, when it sold 2.13 trillion yen, a record amount for a single day.

A slow run-rate was blamed for Sunday’s loss, despite Rohit Sharma scoring his third century of the tournament with a fine 102, and Bangar believes a lack of depth lower down the order forced his batsmen to take fewer risks, ICC has stated in a Press release.Bowling all-rounder Kumar has not played since suffering a muscle injury against Pakistan two weeks ago, with Mohammed Shami coming into the side and cementing his place with 13 wickets in three games, while Jadeja – a spinner who boats 10 ODI fifties – has yet to feature at the tournament.“If you don’t have major contributions from the middle order then someone like Bhuvneshwar Kumar lower down becomes really important,” Bangar said. “Anyone who is handy at number eight, and it could be Jadeja, gives you some freedom. It takes the pressure off those batting at six and seven so that they can start going at the bowling a little earlier.“From that point of view, it is a tactic we are thinking about. There will be a point in the tournament where we have to assess every combination.”The bowling coach added, “I think after the England game, the management team will be more open to various combinations. We are open to all combinations. Three seamers can play, with Hardik [Pandya] as the fourth seamer, or we can look at Ravindra Jadeja coming in.“We are thinking about all of these things.”Bangladesh need to win to keep their own hopes alive and they will have noted how England overcame India, with a key emphasis on attacking the spinners.Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav conceded 97 runs from the first ten overs between them on against England, with Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy dishing out the punishment.However, Bangar insists knowledge is power and has backed them to respond.“Playing on the same track, we know the wicket and dimensions well. We will also learn from a bowling perspective, because in the last six or seven overs against England we gave away a lot of runs,” Bangar added.“That was an area where the game slipped away from us a bit so we will look at that and learn for the next game. Every game will be crucial and we need to learn things for the next game.“It was one of their [spinners] off-days but they have been doing really well for us. We need to continue to back them in the next games. They will have a crucial role to play.” Football Cricket WTC Final LIVE: Devon Conway continues red-hot form, slams fifty to provide New Zealand dream start PSL 2021 Eliminator 1 PES vs KAR LIVE: best way to watch Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings Live Streaming in your country, India, Follow Live update SHARE Euro 2020- Switzerland beat Turkey 3-1: Shaqiri brace ensure 3-1 win; Switzerland’s fate hangs on other Group results Cricket By Kunal Dhyani – July 1, 2019 ICC World Cup 2019: India eye changes for Bangladesh match WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: South Africa lose early wickets; SA 50/3 (16.4 ov)- Follow Live Updates WTC Final Day 3 Stumps: India remove Conway and Latham but Kiwis on top; NZ 101/2 (49 ovs) trail by 116 runs Cricket Latest Sports News Cricket RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Euro 2020, Italy vs Wales LIVE: Matteo Pessina goal helps Italy beat Wales, finish top of Group A with flawless record; Follow Live Updates BCCI Apex Council Meet: BCCI to bid for 3 major global events in next tournament cycle starting from 2024; Check India is looking forward to bounce back from the defeat against England as the Virat Kohli-led boys prepare for their next ICC World Cup 2019 game against Bangladesh at Birmingham on tomorrow (Tuesday).

first_imgThursday Jun 19, 2008 Why I Love Rugby We come from different backgrounds, from different parts of the world. We’re of different age groups and have different beliefs. We’re all essentially very different. But one thing we do have in common, is that we all love rugby.ADVERTISEMENTThats why youre sitting where you are right now. Thats why thousands, from far reaches of the globe, are doing exactly the same thing. We cant get enough of it. Its in our blood. Every moment of this game is special to us. Every tackle, every try, every run, every step its what makes rugby what it is – the most enjoyable sport in the world.This awesome video, made by one of our regulars, is a brilliant summary of all things special in rugby. The power, the skill, the showmanship its all in there, and it makes for a really well made compilation video that will no doubt touch you in some small way.There will be a lot of clips in here that you may have already seen, but with the way it’s packaged, theyre worth seeing again. Theres even one or two League clips thrown in, as, running with ball in hand and stepping your man is good to watch in either code of the game.All in all, we hope you enjoy this video, and if you, like us, think its a great format for another Rugbydump series, then let us know and well consider putting a number two together.

Westerschans 1B is the second phase of the urban development integration plan that Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur and ZOETMULDER designed for the entire Westerschans area. This development consists of three building complexes with a varied program of social housing, owner-occupied apartments, commercial spaces, sheltered housing, a supermarket, catering establishments and a hotel. The Westerschans area directly borders the historic city centre of Goes, the ring-road, and the water of the Havenkanaal.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtWavy balconies as an integral design solution. The horizontal elaboration determined by the urban development plan has been further developed into a circular and undulating balustrade. This gives the building a powerful identity within the urban development ensemble. The undulating balconies overlook the water on the east side and catch the sunlight from the south in the protruding point. At the same time, the protruding point on the gallery on the west side provides an additional semi-private outdoor space with evening sun. The wavy shape refers to the omnipresent water and the cantilever all around provides passive sun protection to prevent overheating. Two emergency staircases have also been incorporated into the waves of the gallery. Thus, the expressive balconies become an integral design solution.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtSave this picture!Isometric diagramA variety of functions. Westerschans 1B contains 29 spacious apartments spread over four floors with a varied range of housing. There are six housing types, from standard apartments to luxury penthouses, all characterized by undulating balconies with a generous view over the water. The corner apartments have an extra balcony or terrace at the end wall, and the top floor has been equipped with a setback to emphasize the horizontality of the building complex. There are several retail units on the ground floor that are connected to both the upper shopping area and the lower quay. There is a semi-sunken parking garage underneath the building.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtSave this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtTransparent plinth connects. Westerschans 1B is an important urban development link in the Westerschans. The rounded and transparent shapes of the retail plinth connect the upper shopping area with the lower car-free quay. In the centre of the plinth is a spacious passage with a view over the water. The main entrance of the apartment building is located here, as a ramp to the quay. The water can also be reached by the wide, lazy stairs alongside the building. On the quay, space has been created along the facade of Westerschans 1B for integrated planters with seats.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtSave this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtColour and materialisation. The colours and materials match the materialisation of the rest of the Westerschans, which creates a natural unity in the area. The sand-yellow main materialisation is derived from the sand-yellow IJsselsteen from the old city centre of Goes. This colour is reflected in the sand-yellow fencing and sand-yellow smooth bricks. On the gallery, the bottom metre of masonry is executed in yellow brick and the top one in brown brick. The yellow brick is visually behind the wavy yellow fence, which emphasizes the horizontality of the facade. The brown brick coincides with the shadow cast on the facade by the balconies. This emphasizes the depth effect and enhances the expressive effect of the facade.Save this picture!© Jeroen VerrechtProject gallerySee allShow lessIs Apprenticeship the Way That Architectural Education Stays Relevant?ArticlesSauna Malabar / Bela Gebara ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:4463 AE Goes, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

She said: “As a retired lawyer I recognise that will writing professionals could play an important role in changing the status quo. If more people were simply asked the question when drawing up a will I’m sure it would make a huge difference to the long-term future of so many of our charities”. Tagged with: Celebrity legacies www.rememberacharity.org.uk A range of national and regional PR activities are underway, including a national photo shoot with Margaret Mountford and a UK road tour visiting nine cities with members’ involvement. Stephen George, Chair of Remember A Charity and Development Director for Legacies at NSPCC said: “Our first ever Awareness Week is a welcome addition to the overall campaign and will provide plenty of opportunities for member charities to talk to their supporters about the importance of legacies and to gain local and national PR. Howard Lake | 14 September 2009 | News Lawyers will also be encouraged this week to ask clients whether they would like to leave a gift to charity in their will, after they have looked after friends and family.

first_imgWW photo: Anne PrudenA “Rally to Save Busing” was well received by lunch hour crowds in downtown Brooklyn on April 19. The citywide group Parents to Improve School Transportation (PIST NYC) chose the site where the Department of Education — controlled by billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg — has its contracts office.Flyers for the event charged authorities with disregarding the needs of school bus riders before, during and since the strike by Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 this winter. Some 8,800 drivers and attendants struck for a month when contract bids went out without an Employee Protection Provision that would maintain seniority hiring.At the rally, busing advocates gave out copies of their School Bus Bill of Rights proposal, along with copies of an April 12 New York Daily News column by Juan Gonzalez that exposed how the city’s own lawyers are now arguing in court that EPP is not illegal. This implies that the mayor knowingly lied when he insisted that the union wanted something illegal in the school bus bids.While some parents took to the microphone, others gathered contact information from interested passersby and shop owners or spoke to reporters. The event was also recorded for the upcoming film “1181: A Documentary.”Brooklyn’s P368 Parent Association President Celia Green, mother of four current or former bus riders, denounced the school system’s failure to conduct mandated bus evacuation drills. Her schools suffered extremely low attendance during the strike that Bloomberg provoked.Bronx PIST leader Milagros Cancel, whose three sons depend on busing for their education, spoke in Spanish about the need to organize against violations of the civil rights of students with disabilities, including violations of their right to adequate transportation.Other protesters included grandparents, a retired teacher with the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) Caucus of the United Federation of Teachers, and a 10-year-old mini-wagon rider.Joining them was a Brooklyn school bus driver with over 20 years’ experience whose company gave her job to a strikebreaker. She is one of 76 workers who are still locked out two months after the strike ended.ATU Local 1181 has taken up the lockouts with the National Labor Relations Board and has another NLRB case against the school bus contractors’ recent unilateral imposition of lowered wages, benefits and hours. Drivers and attendants had their spring break checks withheld; beginning April 15, paychecks were expected to be 7.5 percent lower than before.As Manhattan mom Madeline Sinor said on News 12 TV, “They are cutting, to the bone, the wages of trained, excellent workers who are so important.” The union is pressing for good faith negotiations. DOE has not commented on these developments, although it is the ultimate contractor.The message of the rally was that school bus families plan to fight to prevent such a vital service for students from being downgraded to a part-time, high-turnover, poverty-level job.

first_img SHARE Photo of an Indiana wind farm. (courtesy AgCommunications/Tom Campbell)Wind power electricity generation arrived on the Indiana landscape in 2008. Early projects were concentrated in areas with favorable wind conditions. But a recent study by Purdue researchers revealed that subsequent innovations in wind power technologies, such as taller turbines with larger capacities, have made it economically viable for other Indiana areas to host utility-scale wind farms.The study also found that Indiana county governments that allowed the development of utility-scale wind farms have benefited financially from the decision. For example, in 2019, Benton County received $4.3 million in property tax revenue from wind turbines ($492 per citizen), while White County received $2.3 million ($94 per citizen). Additionally, much of the increased revenue from wind industry property taxes was used to reduce the property tax burden on land in the same townships as the turbines themselves.“We’ve seen vast improvements in wind-generated technology, and that has opened the door in areas that couldn’t normally adopt this type of technology,” said Michael Wilcox, assistant director of Purdue Extension Community Development and principal investigator on the project. “What’s most important is that people in these areas understand that the technology is available and be able to make an informed decision on whether or not to invest in wind energy.”The multidisciplinary team from Purdue Extension Community Development, Purdue Center for Regional Development and Purdue Department of Agricultural Economics analyzed areas where wind farm projects have and have not been located and examined socio-economic conditions that have resulted since the wind farms were (or were not) installed and made operational. Researchers ultimately wanted to understand the dynamics within counties that lead to a decision to support or oppose utility-scale wind generation.

first_imgprintIt’s here. At 2 p.m. today, TCU baseball will begin its third consecutive College World Series.Maybe we should let that settle in.Since 2000, only six other baseball programs have taken back-to-back-to-back trips to Omaha. Here’s the list:Florida (2010-2012)North Carolina (2006-2009)Oregon State (2005-2007)South Carolina (2002-2004, 2010-2012)Stanford (2000-2003)Texas (2002-2005)Now, it’s important to unpack that list to understand how rare it is for the Horned Frogs to be in Omaha for a third consecutive summer.First, college baseball favors Goliath, not David. For every UCSB that sneaks into the tournament, there’s a University of Miami making its 25th CWS appearance.This year’s CWS is the 70th in tournament history. A collection of eight teams* have won almost two-thirds of all tournament titles (44/69).Of the six teams on the list above, all but Oregon State have at least 10 College World Series appearances. These are some of college baseball’s most storied programs – powerhouses that have excelled for decades.And then there’s TCU.Historically, TCU baseball is the new kid on the block. They’re Scotty Smalls in a town dominated by Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez.The Frogs made it to the College World Series for the first time in program history in 2010. Now it’s becoming a habit.The program is prominent on the national stage, but coach Jim Schlossnagle is no longer satisfied with just making it to Omaha. This time around he reached out to Ray Tanner, the former South Carolina coach, to make sure he was taking the right approach to the tournament.Tanner said Schlossnagle was doing it right– keeping his players in their routine, loose and relaxed.Schlossnagle, TCU baseball’s all-time leader in wins with a 563-252 record, said that many didn’t expect TCU to return to the CWS this year.But he added that this is tournament baseball, and with tournament baseball you can’t predict anything.Schlossnagle’s mantra that the most talented team doesn’t always win seems designed to motivate a TCU team with less experience and overall polish than his last two squads that made it to Omaha.Throw out the season-long stats and analytics. Schlossnagle realizes that it’s all about how his guys are playing at the moment.“If you start predicting based on…who has been the best team for 14 weeks, you know, it’s not going to turn out that way. It’s just not,” he said earlier this week.The Frogs may be peaking at the right time. They won the Big 12 Tournament, rolled through Regionals and then bested a more experienced and favored Texas A&M side in the College Station Super Regional.But the other seven teams in the CWS are just as hot. This is unpredictable tournament baseball. This is why we watch.Just hours before TCU’s Jared Janczak throws the first pitch, maybe it’s time to take a wider view at what’s happening here. College baseball’s newest royalty are once again knocking on what Schlossnagle calls the “pearly gates.”The Frogs are getting comfortable in Omaha. Now let’s see what they can do.* (Arizona, Arizona State, Cal State Fullerton, LSU, Miami, Minnesota, Southern California, Texas) Facebook Twitter ReddIt Evan Watsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/evan-watson/ Baker’s brilliance just part of great team performance Facebook ReddIt TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Frogs win their second game at CWS for first time ever Evan Watsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/evan-watson/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Previous articleCommunity reaches out to homelessNext articleBaker bomb leads TCU over Tech Evan Watson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img This year saw the third straight “Frog-pile” for TCU baseball.
