Although the EU standards will not come into effect until January, most UK lenders have already tightened their remuneration policies in line with demands set out by the G20.After the bumper second quarter earnings season prompted a fresh flurry of criticism of pay levels, British Bankers’ Association chief executive Angela Knight warned that skilled workers would flee for America and Asia.“When you consider the extraordinary commentary we saw a fortnight ago in which the return to profitability [of banks] seemed to be a bad thing, you realise policymakers are not recognising reality,” she said. “Around the world, the US shows no inclination to follow what we’re doing and the Far East is just getting on with the job. Either we pay the going rate or we lose the business.”Barclays and Standard Chartered have also hinted at plans to move their domiciles given chancellor George Osborne’s levy on bank balance sheets, to be introduced at the same time as the EU’s pay strictures.Barclays chairman Marcus Agius said at the time of the bank’s interim numbers: “We have planned carefully… I’m sure all banks are considering what their options are.”Standard Chartered chief executive Peter Sands said: “There is no doubt the arguments for London have weakened relative to other centres… We’ve been looking at it more because we’re asked about it more by our investors.”Sands particularly criticised Osborne’s levy as “complicated to implement”. He suggested increased corporation tax would be a simpler and more effective tool.HSBC, run by Michael Geoghegan, yesterday confirmed it would hold its three-yearly review of its domicile in 2011 as scheduled.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. Located in a rather busy midtown of Jakarta, DeeRoemah is a renovation project of a two-storey house on a 280 m2 irregular shaped site which comprises of 1 master bedroom, 3 child/guest bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, office and storage.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaRecognizing the potential of the surprisingly serene neighborhood, an honest design approach was developed for this particular project. The design should be humble and merge with its neighborhood. The main idea is simply to conserve the existing mass and modify it by utilizing the space under the roof on one side of the L-shaped building as a full story – letting it ‘naturally fit’ the urban setting.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaOn the first floor, the living room, dining room and kitchen are designed as transparent as possible towards the surrounding outdoor garden in which the existing trees are preserved to blur the inside-outside boundary, whilst each of every bedroom has the view of a small courtyard.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe semi public office on the second floor, which can only be accessed by the outdoor twirled stairs, also adapt the same level of openness as it is surrounded with clear glass looking through the terrace and garden. A see-through wooden plane (which is from re-used material of the waste from Furniture Factory) is positioned diagonally at one end as a natural shade where its honest craftsmanship accentuates the silhouette of a ‘kampong’ house. It also works as a building skin to cover inside the office activity from the outside and neighborhood.Save this picture!SectionSupporting the concept, the range materials used for this project were simplified. The cement-textured finish dominates the entire house with a hint of raw wood detail on the façade and metal for the outdoor staircase.The need of railing was decoyed by a gray planter box with dangling vegetation while to compress the actual height of the house, a new contoured garden was reset. The landscape element is effortlessly used to soften the whole design.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaConstraints and Solutions achievedThe main concern of this project is the client’s budget and the neighborhood.The solution we took is to preserve the existing concrete structure and re-use some of the materials. This will cut the budget while also can work so that the new and renovated house not so-far different with its ‘kampong’ like neighborhood.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaDetails of landscapingThere are existing trees in the previous house that we preserve and integrate in the new design. The landscape and hardscape of this project really help to create an interesting ambience inside the house. It creates shades for the building while creating mood inside the house and living area.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaDescription of the Climatic situationThe project is located at a tropical climate in Indonesia. It is important for the house to have a cross ventilation to keep up with the humidity while also use the passive energy. On daily basis, the glass doors and window are open. The natural air breezes in to the house. And the clear glass and skylight works well to insert the natural light all day long. The vertical garden and wooden panel help to create shades inside the house.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaCulturalThe re-used materials such as clay roofing and wooden panel on the façade of the building help the building to merge with its natural surrounding and its neighborhood. The newly construct upper level looks no different than the houses and other houses on neighborhood from the outside. The building holds critical cultural standpoint in the neighborhood. It is important so that the building and its habitant can communicate in the new area and creates no cultural and economical shocks that may appear, to the neighborhood.Project gallerySee allShow lessW House / SLOW officeSelected ProjectsInstant Red / Wutopia LabSelected Projects Share “COPY” Projects ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/790443/deeroemah-wahana-architects Clipboard Indonesia Save this picture!© Fernando Gomulya+ 18 Share Architects: Gets Architects Area Area of this architecture project Area: 196 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeGets ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSouth JakartaIndonesiaPublished on June 30, 2016Cite: “DeeRoemah / Gets Architects” 29 Jun 2016.

These will include:· Lotteries· Raffles· Instant Win games· CompetitionsRoger Craven, manager of Vir2 Mobile services at RSM 2000, explained: “We practically all look at Facebook and Twitter on mobile devices. Society lottery short codes allow charities to capitalise on the sense of urgency created by rollovers, bonus plays and time limited opportunities to trigger additional plays from existing members and to acquire new players using posters, digital, TV and radio channels.” Advertisement Dedicated or shared codes?As with text donations, charities will have the choice of buying their own dedicated short codes for fundraising campaigns, or take the lower cost option of using a shared short code. With the latter – Vir2 Mobile, RSM 2000’s SMS platform offers 72020 – each charity can rent one or more keywords on the code that are unique to that organisation. The supplier system will match the unique keyword from the player to the relevant charity and lottery.Not surprisingly, there is expected to be some competition to secure popular keywords on shared numbers, such as Play, Win, Ticket, Bonus.The new codes will also enable players to use keywords to trigger a single payment or a regular payment, including weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually.Further approval requiredDelegates at the London conference will hear that any games played using the new short codes will need regulatory approval from the Gambling Commission and the Phonepaid Services Authority.Nevertheless, it is hoped that the first services will be introduced in time for Christmas raffles.

Chicago, Nov. 24 — Over 200 people rallied and marched here in a Boycott Black Friday action to demand enactment of an ordinance to ensure community control of police. The demonstrators marched down Michigan Avenue, Chicago’s toniest shopping district, picketing luxury malls and retailers along the way.Chants and signs focused on the failure of the injustice system to try and convict racist killer cops. One of these is Jason Van Dyke, who has yet to go to trial after pumping 16 shots into unarmed 17-year-old Laquan McDonald over three years ago in what can only be deemed an execution on the streets.The demonstrators also highlighted the longstanding practice of police torture by Chicago cops. From 1972 to 1991, hundreds of arrestees were tortured under the direction of Chicago Police Department Commander and Detective John Burge.Most of those tortured and then convicted on the basis of false, coerced confessions remain behind bars today. The release and exoneration of these hundreds of wrongfully convicted people are a key demand of Chicago’s growing abolitionist movement.Protest participants also expressed outrage at the recently approved $95 million police training academy — in a city where schools are deteriorating and youth community centers are few.Speaking at the march was Dorothy Holmes, whose son Ronald Johnson was shot down by police just one week after Laquan McDonald’s murder, despite being unarmed and running away from police. Other speakers included Frank Chapman of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, the primary organizer of the action; and representatives from Black Lives Matter, United States Palestinian Community Network, Anakbayan, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Workers World Party and other organizations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Published on Aug. 11 at lowwagecapitalism.com.Let there be no mistake about it. Donald Trump has the blood of all those killed and wounded in the mass shootings of the recent past on his hands, from Gilroy, Calif.; to El Paso, Texas; to Dayton, Ohio.And let there be no mistake about it. Trump speaks the mind of the ruling class. Just days after the racist mass shootings, millionaires and billionaires travelled to the Hamptons on New York’s Long Island to give him $12 million in one night at a gala celebration. His racism, his misogyny, his bigotry, openly spouted from his guttermouth, are part of a deliberate strategy to mobilize the like-minded racists, bigots and male chauvinists to come out and vote for him in 2020. There is mounting mass anger and outrage at the killings, which followed his attacks on Congressman Elijah Cummings and the city of Baltimore, as well as his racist rants against four congresswomen of color, and his relentless references to a so-called “invasion” of immigrants seeking asylum from Washington’s right-wing regimes in Central America.Trump’s racist language was clearly mimicked in the language of the El Paso killer, who issued a document declaring that “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” Research shows that the Trump campaign issued over 2,200 Facebook ads with the same formulation: “invasion of immigrants.”Trump was forced to go to the teleprompter and issue a wooden, hypocritically brief statement criticizing white supremacy and hatred. This is like a mobster crying “stop thief.” But Trump is still a white supremacist to his core. No anti-racist teleprompter declarations will change him one iota from the hardened racist he is.Not just TrumpRacism has a long and bloody history in the U.S. Some say that U.S. fascism flies on the wings of racism. Since the first Spanish settlers arrived in the southeast in the 16th century, and then the English and Dutch came to New England at the beginning of the 17th century, racism directed against the Indigenous population has been used to justify the seizure of millions of acres of land and the murder and removal of millions of Native peoples. At the same time, millions of people were kidnapped from Africa and imported to be enslaved on the plantation lands of the U.S., as well as in the Caribbean Islands and Central and South America. Anti-Black racism was the justification. Then one-half of Mexico was seized and colonized in the southwest. Anti-Latinx racism was added to the racist galaxy of the corporate masters. Tens of thousands of Chinese were brought to the West Coast to build the railroads. Anti-Asian violence became commonplace.European immigration expands ranks of working classMeanwhile, the corporations brought tens of millions of European immigrants to the U.S. to farm the land seized and to do the mining, lay the railroad tracks, work in the factories and expand the farm population and the working class. The first European settlers established colonies on Native lands on the eastern seaboard in the 17th century. With the expansion of the commercial and industrial revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries, the bosses and landlords brought in more and more Europeans from Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands. In the late 19th and early 20th century, the bosses brought in millions from southern and eastern Europe, including many Jews fleeing persecution. By the beginning of the 20th century, millions of Italians, Poles, Hungarians and Czechs were also incorporated into the working class. Before long the U.S. was populated with millions of oppressed Africans, Native people, Latinx and Asians, alongside millions of poor workers and farmers from Europe. All were toiling on the lands, in the mines and in the factories of the U.S. millionaire ruling class. In a society based on the exploitation of labor of the vast majority by a tiny minority, every capitalist — large or small, corporate or political — constantly feels the need to divide and rule. It comes with the territory. The pressure to weaken the subject population through divisions is always present. Trump speaks out loud the mind of the capitalistsA long-suppressed tape recording of a phone conversation between then President Richard Nixon and future President Ronald Reagan was recently released by the National Archives. The conversation took place in August 1971, when Reagan was governor of California. They spoke on the occasion of the admission of the People’s Republic of China to the U.N., after being kept out by Washington ever since the victorious Chinese Revolution of 1949.Reagan, referring to African members of the Security Council, said to Nixon, “Did you see those monkxxs? They’re not even comfortable wearing shoes.” Nixon gave a big laugh. Reagan knew enough not to say that in public. But today, Trump says it out loud, referring to African nations as “s—hole countries,” or saying, “Go back where you came from” to four congresswomen of color.In general, few prominent members of the capitalist establishment, big bankers or corporate leaders have condemned Trump’s racist or misogynistic rants. They probably think and say similar things in private conversations. Chapters from the history of capitalist, racist politicsIt is not only Nixon, Reagan and Trump, who have been racist. They are following in the footsteps of generations of ruling class political “heroes.” Of course there is George Washington, the first U.S. president, who was the second biggest owner of enslaved people in the 13 colonies at that time. Trump is often seen on TV in front of a painting of Andrew Jackson. Using the Indian Removal Act of 1830, Jackson had the Cherokee tribe removed by force from east of the Mississippi River and driven as far as Oklahoma in the “trail of tears.” Abraham Lincoln, the most progressive president of the 19th century, ordered an attack on the Indigenous Dakota people in Minnesota in1862 and oversaw the Dakota Removal Act, even while pursuing the Civil War against the slavocracy.Theodore Roosevelt was an arch-colonialist who oversaw the conquest of Cuba and Puerto Rico and the massacres during the seizure and annexation of the Philippines. Theodor Roosevelt considered people of color inferior. Woodrow Wilson, another lionized hero of liberalism, showed the racist, pro-South, pro-Klan, pro-slavery movie “Birth of a Nation” in the White House in 1915. Some say it fostered the rise of the Klan that followed. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the most liberal president of the 20th century, ordered the Ponce Massacre of Puerto Rican nationalists in 1937. In pursuit of imperialist war with Japan, FDR had over 120,000 Japanese people in the U.S. rounded up and sent to concentration camps and had their property seized.In this list, we must not forget Bill Clinton, who destroyed welfare, promoted legislation leading to mass incarceration and declared that the “era of big government” is over.Aspects of the subjugation of oppressed people in the U.S.Capitalists and slave masters alike have used racism since the beginning of the country. The settlers who colonized the U.S., the Pilgrims and the 20,000 Puritans who piled into New England, all carried out unspeakable atrocities to subdue the Native people, while slandering them as “savages” and subhuman.This was to justify the slaughter of New England tribes — the Wampanoag, Narragansett and Algonquin, among others. Thousands of Native people were killed in Massachusetts alone.The New England massacres were the beginning of a continent-wide offensive which spread from western Florida to the Midwest to Arizona to California and lasted until the 1890s. Millions of Native people were either killed or removed to reservations. The number of African people enslaved in the U.S. grew from the 388,000 who survived the Middle Passage and were originally brought to the U.S. in chains, to 4.4 million at the outset of the Civil War. There are now over 44 million African Americans in the U.S.The northern half of Mexico was annexed by Washington in 1848 by conquest. The southwest Latinx people became a subject population. Asians were brought to Hawaii and the West Coast as laborers during the mid-to-late 19th century. After the great Depression of 1873, the racist Chinese Exclusion Act of 1892 promoted anti-Chinese riots and lynchings on the West Coast. Anti-working-class strategy and tactic of capitalistsStudents of working-class history are familiar with the divide-and-conquer methods of the bosses. From the early 19th century, the law declared any gathering of three or more workers to be an illegal conspiracy. When the workers defied this restriction and went on to organize, the bosses expanded their tactics. They hired Pinkerton thugs and other labor spies to frame up workers and break unions. They tried to turn the unorganized against the organized. They pitted the higher paid against the lower paid. They set the skilled against the unskilled. They tried to turn white against Black; white against Brown; Brown against Black; white, Black and Brown against Asian; etc. They hired gun thugs to fight organizing drives or organized unions. In the modern era, they rely on the FBI and private labor spies to do their dirty work.The racism of Trump and the ruling class must be put in the anti-working- class setting in which it has always existed. It is the answer of the tiny minority of the rich, exploiting class to their fear of rebellion by the vast majority of the masses of people. Only class solidarity and international solidarity can overcome this poisonous racist division. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
