Managed pubs, which have fared better during the recession, are run directly by the company and generally have greater freedom on pricing.Punch built up its debt by making a series of highly leveraged acquisitions during the credit boom including the 2.7 billion pound acquisition of rival Spirit Group in 2005.It has been reducing its debt by selling off underperforming pubs and buying back debt but said on Tuesday that its current strategy is not sustainable with structural change being needed to drive value.The demerger is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.“A demerger will provide the platform to enable both businesses to focus on the very different strategies required to deliver shareholder value and will provide choice and liquidity for investors,” said Chief Executive Ian Dyson.Britain’s pubs have had a torrid time in recent years battling a recession, smoking ban and cut price alcohol in supermarkets – all of which have combined to keep drinkers at home resulting in record closures across the industry.

The huge increase in air travelers and ever more full – and oversold – flights have made air travel more trying. But it has gotten better in one aspect that most of us in the smartphone-addicted public appreciate: Cellphone use is no longer completely forbidden on planes.We used to have to turn our phones off and store them when we flew commercially, but now can keep them on as long as they are in Airplane Mode. Why? What’s changed? Weren’t planes supposed to fall out of the sky should some forgetful flier leave their phone on? And what really would happen if everyone started yakking away during cross-country flights?Connecting calls via cell towersFirst some basics on how cellphone systems work. When you make or receive a call, your phone looks for the closest cell tower to connect to. Each tower services an area (a “cell”) that may be as large as 50 miles in radius over flat terrain, or smaller than a mile in radius in hilly areas or dense urban zones.Your call gets transferred from tower to tower as you move through the landscape. Anucha Cheechang/Shutterstock.comAs you move from one cell to another, say on your daily commute, your cellphone call gets handed off from one tower to the next. It requires a fair bit of work on the part of the overall system to make these transitions seem seamless to you. There are also built-in expectations about how often these handoffs should happen (not very), the speed of the user (highway speeds at most), and your altitude (somewhere near the ground).Cellular use on a plane at cruising altitude breaks all three of these expectations. Simply put, calls in the sky may interfere with the proper functioning of this complex system – particularly if a couple hundred passengers all had their cellular radios on – such that users on the ground are affected.So, for now, the Federal Communications Commission restricts cellular use on airplanes.But what’s the risk?That all sounds like a service issue, not a safety one. What would happen if someone kept their phone’s cellular functions on while enjoying the view at 30,000 feet? Likely, nothing. And that’s a good thing, since even when their use was completely banned, people left them on all the time, whether intentionally or not.But there is a non-neglible risk that using your phone could interfere with critical systems on the plane.Although most modern phones no longer do this, GSM (2G) phones were notorious for interfering with other electronic systems. Former owners will recall the “buzz” you heard in your stereo or speakerphone when making a call. Now, imagine this buzz being picked up by a sensitive navigation system. You don’t need to be technically minded to understand that might not be good.Researchers found that electromagnetic emissions from personal electronic devices can interfere with a plane’s systems. Specifically, those in the 800-900 MHz range can interfere with unshielded cockpit instrumentation. This is a particular issue on older aircraft. Newer planes are designed to deal with the huge amount of electronics the flying public takes onto airplanes.Airplanes are incredibly complex machines, filled with electronics and critical systems required to perform the modern miracle that is flight. The thing about complex systems is that it’s usually impossible to test how safe they are under every conceivable contingency. Given how many new phones come on the market each year, it would be challenging to test how each and every model might interfere with the systems on each aircraft in the commercial fleet worldwide. So airplane manufacturers work to “harden” the critical systems on their planes to make them less susceptible to interference from electronics.Switch your phone to Airplane ModeCellphones used to be just that, a phone. You used it to call and text people. Arguably, the “phone” is now the least used function — think about the time you spend making calls versus everything else you do with it. So frequent fliers chafed at having to put their phone away for hours.Today’s phones do way more than just make calls.Stephen Leonardi/Unsplash, CC BYAlthough the FCC governs the use of cellular phones on planes, the Federal Aviation Administration governs the use of electronic devices on planes. If a device doesn’t interfere with the aircraft’s communication or navigation systems, it can be used on planes. People were using laptops, cameras, video players, tablets, electronic games and so on, so why not smartphones? After all, this single device now performs the functions of all those others. Hence, the FAA ruled they may be used, but only if the cellular radio was switched off. Enter Airplane Mode.By adding Airplane Mode, device manufacturers have made our lives easier. When you flip on this feature, it turns off your phone’s cellular radio so you can’t make phone calls or text. It also turns off WiFi and Bluetooth, but both of those can be re-enabled and used on planes.Airlines continue to innovate. Delta, for example, offers free access to certain messaging apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, which work over WiFi. But cellular texting, which needs the cellular radio, is still prohibited.Of course some people still want to be able to make phone calls while in flight. Sadly for those of us in the flying public who don’t want to sit next to someone loudly blabbing away all the way from New York to LA, this day may come. Airlines are experimenting with “picocells,” which are like mini, low-power cell towers within the plane itself. Since this is the closest “tower” a phone on a plane would find, it would not connect to any towers on the ground, eliminating the FCC’s concerns. Your call would be routed like a VoIP call using the plane’s onboard internet provider system. You can learn more about the VoIP phone system and see how it works on land or could work while flying.As for how to keep the rest of us from erupting like Samuel L. Jackson, “Enough is enough! I’ve had it with these [daggone] cell phones on this [daggone] plane!” – perhaps airlines will create “cell-free zones” like the ones in trains and other public places.This article is republished from The Conversation.

Was originally built in 1961. The building is situated on a hill above Dornbirn, Austria. The site, which is protected on the uphill side by a small forest, provides an astonishing view over the rhine delta and lake constance.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterIn 2012 the house, with an area of 85 m2, became too small for its four inhabitants and had to be expanded fundamentally. In the beginning, “haus hohlen” was gutted due to the fact that the existing stonework was the only building structure worth preserving. Obsolete fixtures and ineffectual refurbishments were dismantled. Given the need to increase the amount of space and renew the façade, the idea came up to construct a new building envelope a certain distance around the old house.
the chosen lightweight timber stick-construction offers all the advantages of modern timber structures: high prefabrication level, quick construction, sustainability and a good indoor climate. The wooden frame construction is intended as a spatial contrast to the existing solid structure. The existing roof was extended 4 meters on the verges sides and 1.5 meters on the eaves sides.Save this picture!SectionDue to the position of “haus hohlen” in the middle of a natural setting, a large amount of glass was used. Well-proportioned windows offer great views to the valley and the forest.
together with randomly arrayed closed wall elements, the windows generate a sophisticated pattern façade which offers both open and more shielded spaces indoors. Inside, it was important to keep the old house’s structure recognizable within the new: old windows became passageways, an old kitchen window became a pass-through; another window became a niche for a basin.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe new building skin with up-to-date, highly effective insulation and triple glazing guarantees very low energy consumption.
the insulation is made of organic materials such as wood fibre or foam glass.
a new heat pump with geothermal probes replaces the existing oil heating.
all rooms are equipped with floor heating, and therefore a new screed was necessary for the whole building. The screed’s surface was merely sanded, no additional flooring was used. Now a new homogenous floor surface visually connects the old and new parts of the building. The new façade is a wood-aluminium frame system. All unglazed parts are filled with wooden panels that are covered with a water vapour permeable coating often used in boat building.
the dark colour harmonises with the forest in the background.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Architecture Rifa G’07 / Villalba, Rudolph, Vila, López, Canén, Apolant, MartinezSelected ProjectsEFFEKT Wins Contest to Redevelop Abandoned Train Shed in Esbjerg with StreetmekkaUnbuilt Project Share Houses Year:  Haus Hohlen / Jochen Specht Photographs ArchDaily Haus Hohlen / Jochen SpechtSave this projectSaveHaus Hohlen / Jochen Specht ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/573646/haus-hohlen-jochen-specht Clipboard 2014last_img read more

Court asked the State and the Municipal Corporation to place the detailed plan on record within two weeks but asked them to begin the work before that.The above assurance was given to the division bench of Justice RK Deshpande and Justice PV Ganediwala at nagpur because in a previous hearing, the Court lashed out at the State government for not responding to the proposal of setting up 1000 beds at the said stadium. On September 15, the bench was informed that the State government is not responding to the proposal of setting up a 1000 bed centre at the stadium, out of which 400 beds shall be for ventilators and 300 beds shall be oxygenated. Court had observed-“We are surprised as to how the State Government is not responding to such a proposal. The situation in Nagpur is dreadful. The death rate is increasing day by day. Mortuaries are full. There is a queue in crematories. The patients are not getting ventilators and oxygenated beds. The situation is becoming ferocious. Still the State Government is not rising on the occasion to reduce the death rate. We direct the State Government to take decision on this proposal within a period of one week from today.”Court had earlier this month taken suo motu cognizance of the issues faced by the general public due to non-availability of ventilators and oxygenated beds for Coronavirus patients with moderate and severe conditions in order to reduce the death rate in Nagpur.In the September 15 order, after being informed about shortage of para medical staff as many were refusing to resume duty fearing Coronavirus, Court had sought a list of such para medical staff.However, AGP Deepak Thakare informed the Court that the said Hospitals and Nursing Colleges have started responding immediately upon communication of the order of the High Court and the process of allotment of paramedical staff, in various Dedicated Covid Health Centres (DCHC) is going on. In accordance with the previous order, Municipal Commissioner’s counsel SM Puranik informed the Court that a list of Ayush Doctors shall be provided to work under the guidance and instructions of the senior Doctors. Consequently, appointment orders are issued to about 56 Ayush Doctors and out of it, 17 Doctors have already joined and rest of the Doctors are being persuaded to join the duties immediately. “We therefore expect all such Doctors to rise to the occasion and co-operate in this situation”, Court said.Court had also enquired from the Municipal Commissioner whether there is possibility of requisitioning the Railway Hospitals for providing treatment to the patients along with the medical and para-medical staff. Accordingly, an order dated September 16, 2020 passed by the Commissioner, Nagpur Municipal Corporation was placed on record and the Court was told that the authorities of the Railway Hospitals are co-operating and the facility can immediately be made available. Court ordered the Indian Medical Association to be joined as party respondent in the petition through the President Dr. Archana Kothari. Previously, the bench had expressed concern over shortage of doctors as well. Advocate BG Kulkarni, appeared on behalf of the Indian Medical Association and assured that a list of 100 Doctors, who shall be willing to work at various places, shall be provided along with the age groups, to the Municipal Commissioner within a period of two days. Furthermore, a list of 20 persons shall be given to Adv SM Puranik and these Doctors can be assigned the duties immediately by the Municipal Commissioner. Adv Kulkarni also submitted that many Doctors have voluntarily offered their services through video conferencing who are aged above 65 years. We appreciate this gesture of doctors voluntarily coming forward to involve themselves in this pious work, Court noted.Finally, appearing on behalf of the petitioner in a matter tagged along with the suo motu case, Senior Advocate Subodh Dharmadhikari suggested constitution of a committee. Thus, Court ordered the constitution of a committee so that the issues can be worked out and the Doctors and para-medical staff can be made available immediately. The co-ordination committee will consist of the following members:- (i) The Mayor Shri Sandeep Joshi, Chairman of the Committee (ii) Divisional Commissioner, Nagpur (iii) Municipal Commissioner, Nagpur or his nominee (iv) The President, Indian Medical Association (v) Dr. Anil Laddhad to represent the private hospitals. After various assurances from the Municipal Commissioner, Court observed-“We expect that the problem of oxygen supply to the private hospitals as well as the semi Government hospitals can be worked out.”The next date of hearing is September 23Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Facebook 411 new Covid 19 cases, 31 in Donegal Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; “Together with all of the basic public health measures with which we are all now so familiar, vaccination will significantly reduce risk of COVID-19 over the next relatively short period of time. It will radically reduce mortality when those over 70 are fully vaccinated but will initially have a smaller effect on hospitalisation and critical care until the wider adult population, especially vulnerable adults and those aged 50-69 years, are protected by vaccination.“There is a critical window over the next 8 weeks where any significant increase in close contact is likely to lead to a significant fourth wave of infection in the range of that experienced in January 2021.“We can and should be optimistic for an enjoyable summer ahead but, in the meantime, we have to continue to work together to prevent a further wave of infection as we accelerate vaccination across society and maintain our health services.”Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the NPHET Irish Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group, said; “The Reproduction number is currently estimated at 1.0 – 1.3. If the epidemic is growing again now, the doubling time is estimated at 35 days or longer.“When comparing the risks of levels of social mixing now and over the coming months with that which applied in 2020, we need to take into account the B.1.1.7 variant and how easily that transmits, and we must also take account the vaccination-induced immunity that will progressively protect us and make it more difficult for the virus to transmit.“Vaccination will contribute greatly to the easing of measures in the coming months, however now we need keep transmission as low as possible so that vaccination of the population can take place and have the desired effect.”Dr Siobhán Ni Bhriain, Consultant Psychiatrist and Integrated Care Lead, HSE, said; “We are continuing to review instances of ‘long-COVID’. While the evidence base is limited to date, the studies available indicate that people who have had COVID-19 have reported a drop in quality of life including greater difficulty doing usual activities as well as increases in fatigue, anxiety and loss of sense of taste and or smell. One study suggests that outcomes are worse in working age females than males, in those who were hospitalised.“The long-term impact of post-COVID syndromes on the working age population is not well understood but it could be significant. Our best defence against long term health impacts such as those noted above is still to adhere to the public health advice. Stay safe by sticking with your bubble and enjoy the outdoors.”Professor Pete Lunn, Behavioural Research Unit, ESRI, said; “Compliance remains generally high, but the behaviour of a minority is increasing the risk for all of us. Even this minority are trying to stick to restrictions in most aspects, but they are nevertheless visiting other homes. It would be much better if people could instead meet at outdoor locations and maintain distance.“Our research finds that three psychological factors are linked to increased social activity: how worried people are in general by the virus, whether they view the restrictions as coherent, and how they personally view the trade-off between preventing the spread of the virus against the burden of the restrictions. Interestingly, we don’t find that fatigue is directly linked to behaviour. Those who say they are most tired of the restrictions are not more likely to break them. Rather, what matters is whether they view the benefit to society from preventing the spread of the virus as more important.”The COVID-19 Dashboard provides up-to-date information on the key indicators of COVID-19 in the community including daily data on Ireland’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.
