And a fine celebration the ceremony was too, honouring companies of all sectors and sizes across the UK economy, from niche tiddlers such as organic baby food group Ella’s Kitchen, to giants such as supermarket groups Waitrose and Tesco.Martin McCourt scooped one of the two headline awards of the evening, the Orange Leader of the Year, for his role as chief executive of Dyson, the entrepreneurial maker of whizzy vacuum cleaners (don’t use the H-word, or you’ll be lynched, apparently).The other went to retiring Tesco grandee Sir Terry Leahy, who is to leave the group next year after no less than 14 years at the helm. Not for our straight-talking Liverpudlian a future life of leisure, though.“There’s no such thing as leaving – I’ll be with Tesco for life,” Leahy told The Capitalist. “It’s important to let the new management team get on with it, but I will always be a big shareholder and will always be involved…”More directorships could also be on the cards, he admits, as well as ploughing more time into his care home charity foundation back in Liverpool. It’s a good job he doesn’t care much for golf.DRESS TO IMPRESSQuite apart from the numerous award winners, high-profile City businessmen and women thronged the hall, from Sir John Banham, chair of Johnson Matthey, to Whitbread’s Alan Parker and Nick Robertson, boss of online retailer ASOS.Robertson, chatting happily about a subject close to The Capitalist’s heart – fashion – is looking forward to pushing into new markets in Europe, much to the horror of the Brit fashion pack who pride themselves on their eclectic home-grown style.“I thought you might say that,” Robertson laughed. “It’s been the biggest barrier to our growth so far – the fact that ladies don’t like to share the secret of where they bought their stuff!” Can anyone blame us, I ask?JOKER’S CORNERGag of the evening went not to newsreader Huw Edwards, presenting the awards, nor to guest speaker Nick Clegg, the deputy Prime Minister, but to Tom Bewick, the little-known chief executive of Dragon Peter Jones’ charity the National Enterprise Academy.“I feel like Pamela Anderson’s fifth husband,” Bewick began, addressing the audience between courses. “I know what I’ve got to do, it’s merely a question of making it interesting…”BOO HISSFinally, a note on how to quickly gauge the level to which your company has risen or sunk in the eyes of the general public: get nominated for an award. Booze and leisure firms yesterday elicited the largest cheers, moving down the scale towards the Royal Bank of Scotland – half hisses, half cheers – and finally hitting rock bottom with HMRC, greeted with a barrage of pantomime booing. last_img read more

Located in Kansas City, Kansas, this environmentally conscious, modern home performs completely off the grid in an area desperately in need of revitalization. Being the first LEED Platinum home in the Kansas City Metropolitan area, the building serves as an example of sustainable practice and living for buyers who desire life in the city close to the urban core. This house is a combination of passive strategies and active systems which visually call out the environmental standards to which the design aspires.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesThe Sustainable Residence is designed by Studio 804, a not‐for profit design/build program that serves as the final design studio for graduate students at the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Planning. The student led process creates prefabricated architecture while thoughtfully responding to global problems of density and sustainability using smaller scale, local solutions.Follow the break for more photographs and drawings of this residence.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804SiteA site with a broad south exposure was chosen to support the passive solar effort. Additionally, operable windows provided along the lower southern strip of glazing and rooftop skylights allow for stack ventilation throughout the interior. The entire site was planted with a drought-resistant fescue sod that is highly recommended in Kansas as a replacement for conventional turf. All hardscape surfaces surrounding the exterior of the house are porous materials such as pervious concrete, which permits the rainwater to seep into the water table.Save this picture!floor plansSunflower Army Ammunition PlantThe Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant, located between Lawrence and Kansas City, was established in 1941 as one of the world’s largest powder and propellant plants, later playing a historic role providing ammunition during World War II and the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. The ammunition plant, now an excess federal property, is being rehabilitated for public use through Sunflower Redevelopment. Of the original five thousand retired ammunition buildings, over one thousand are designated free of contaminants.The rights were secured to harvest the 70-year-old Douglas Fir from Sunflower. The reclaimed boards were used for interior walls and structural support.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804Sustainable DesignThe residence’s ability to be off the grid eliminates the homeowner’s consistent dependency on natural resources such as coal and gas, decreasing the building’s overall impact on the environment. The house’s total energy needs are reduced by the use of renewable energy sources, including a wind turbine and photovoltaic solar panels, as a means of power. The use of low-flow valve fixtures, along with a rainwater reclamation system, allows the residence to rely less on public water resources. The combination of a radiant floor system and concrete thermal mass minimizes the daily temperature fluctuation. Also, the design’s use of a geothermal heat pump, Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV), and highly efficient HVAC improves the effectiveness of all the sustainable systems.ConstructionWood was the natural choice for building due to its economy, ease of assembly, and speed of erection. FSC-certified wood was used in the framing and sheathing of all walls, roof, and floor in order to ensure the product was properly harvested. Each framing member was precisely measured and cut to achieve a waste factor of only 4.37%. If short anywhere within the calculations, reclaimed lumber from Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant was to be used in its place.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804Environmentally Preferred MaterialsRegionally manufactured, reclaimed, and recycled content materials were used throughout the design. FSC lumber and the reclaimed lumber from Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant were used to frame the walls. Also, the Galvalume metal roofing panels are recyclable and contain a minimum of 25% recycled content. The Xcell blown cellulose insulation was manufactured locally from recycled paper fiber. The concrete mix included 30% fly ash, a byproduct of the coal industry.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804Interior ApplicationsThe majority of the wood used throughout the interior framing is recycled from the deconstruction of the former Sunflower ammunition facility and framed on two-foot centers to reduce material usage. FSC-certified Jatoba hardwood flooring is featured in the upstairs loft and bedroom spaces and continues to wrap the kitchen ceiling to achieve a visual link between spaces. All countertops and bathroom surrounds are manufactured from a recycled paper composite material that is highly durable, low maintenance, and stain resistant.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804Exterior ApplicationsThe vertical application of the FSC-certified tropical Cumaru wood rainscreen wraps the entire exterior of the residence. Precisely detailed, twenty-four photovoltaic panels are located on the southern roof plane flush with the Cumaru rainscreen. Rainwater is collected in the remaining 50% of the roof along the north side and stored in an underground cistern. The rainscreen uses the wood barrier to compartmentalize the air cavity, thereby allowing rapid air pressure equalization and minimal moisture intrusion.Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio 804Project gallerySee allShow lessFountain at Pilsen / Ondřej CíslerArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share 2009 Year:  Projects Sustainable Residence / Studio 804Save this projectSaveSustainable Residence / Studio 804 “COPY” ArchDaily Houseslast_img read more

At first glance, these windows might appear to be arrayed irregularly. But upon careful examination of the size and arrangement, one will notice the relation to the cityscape of the surrounding area. It is, so to speak, a form of “natural clutter.”Spatial strategySave this picture!© Takumi OtaIn the interior, each window has long wooden desk or bench. The façade of the building is filled with various spectacles of resident’s activities. And then, gradually, they become a brilliant village of 10 houses, blended into their surroundings.The utility core is placed in the center of the dwelling unit. All rooms are arranged around the core.

When we entered for the first time in the former textile Grober factory, located in the District of Gràcia in Barcelona, completely empty, but so full of history, we felt the total freedom that gave us the space to be able to project any home we could imagine.Save this picture!AxonometricOne of our requirements was to keep the diaphanous and open character, without giving up more domestic space and maintaining a certain intimacy. That is why we created a fully open living area, enjoying the advantages that  a loft space offers: great heights, visual connections to the entire space anda large perspective. But at the same time, we created a night area, consisting of two bedrooms and a main bathroom, bounded by the mezzanine and separated by a library.Save this picture!© Lluis CarbonellIn this way, the first floor is configured with a living area formed by a living room, dining area and the kitchen. The mezzanine is visually connected with the space below, it is composed by an office, a bathroom, and a second living room that turns into a guest bedroom if necessary.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Aitor EstévezA new stairway from the mezzanine connects to the roof terrace, taking advantage of the old hollow forklift.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezTo preserve the square proportion (8,40 x 8,60 m) of the plan we decided to keep the mezzanine open (without balustrade), preserving the visual connections from one area to another. One step was built all along, which not only allowed us to save the difference of height but create a new space to sit in and contemplate the whole loft to establish a dialogue between both spaces.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezOne of the main challenges of the mezzanine was how to save height  below the metal trusses to pass from one side to another without having to place two ladders. Thus we decided to create a mobile staircase sliding through a guide all along the library, giving access to any part of the mezzanine.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section 1In terms of materials, the project aims to preserve a neutral character that allow us to highlight especially the original ones. Large windows, timber and metal trusses are strong elements, so we had to choose new materials like if they had always been there: wood (flooring of ground floor in natural Oak,  birchslats for the mezzanine  and furniture) and metal (U-shaped sockets , staircase, legs for the dining table, etc.). Everything according to the aesthetics of the place.Save this picture!© Lluis CarbonellMaterials and furniture define the different rooms without having to use partitions: a library all along the mezzanine dividing night and day areas, a bar extension from the worktop separating visually kitchen and living room. To distinguish the dining room we used hydraulic mosaic tiles, giving a character of the typical apartment from the 19th century of Barcelona, with geometric and neutral tones.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section 2The furniture was designed especially for the project using stone, wood and iron. The dining table in the center is made using white Macael marble, which is very typical in the bars of Barcelona yet upgraded from a wooden base that rests on legs of iron.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezProject gallerySee allShow lessBank of Pisa and Fornacette New HQ / Massimo MarianiSelected ProjectsElderly Residential Home / Atelier Zündel CristeaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Vila de Gràcia, Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Having worked with Immortal Sport for years we know how good they are and how amazing their events have been. Seeing their events cancelled, I wanted to come up with a solution that could immediately help them, but also benefit any other event director or business in the UK that needed support too. By combining their experience with the foundations of RaceNation, we’re delighted to be entering a new chapter with RaceNation Events and look forward to forging a long-term partnership with them and other events.”RaceNation has already announced multiple campaigns to support the rebuild of the event sector, and a partnership with The National Running Show and findarace.com to help event organisers with their promotion. The pandemic has also seen RaceNation launch an Event Protect and Refund Protect service along with a new Virtual Events feature built into its platform to support all timings and results for virtual events taking place. Event registration and fundraising platform RaceNation has partnered with Immortal Sport to create new mass participation events company RaceNation Events.The new arm aims to support struggling mass participation event organisers and charities with funding and event delivery support.Immortal Sport is the organiser of 12 events that raise funds for charities including Exmoor Triathlon Weekend, Salisbury Half Marathon and the Lemur Loop.The move will see previous Immortal Sport directors Jody Foy and Lucy Ridout take up new roles with RaceNation Events.Immortal Sport had been facing the prospect of not returning for 2021. The set-up of RaceNation Events means funding has been secured for Immortal Sport events and that the team is also ready to support other event organisers who might be in the same difficult position financially.Jody Foy and Lucy Ridout, newly appointed Directors of RaceNation Events, said:“Like so many other event companies, Immortal Sport was hit hard by the effects of Covid-19. Cancelling events for 2020 we faced the very real possibility that we might not be able to return in 2021 to the events we have dedicated our lives to.”“When chatting through the situation with Will Golder and the RaceNation team, we understood the impact Covid-19 was having on the industry and we knew something had to be done. Getting to work straight away on RaceNation Events we have managed to combine two incredibly strong teams with the funding and security that we can deliver the same great Immortal Sport events for 2021 and for years to come. It means so much to us that we can continue doing what we love.”Will Golder, Director of RaceNation added: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The victims’ families were notified via a caller with a Mexican telephone number to deposit ransom money at a specific location, prosecutors allege.Mexican authorities found the San Diego victim’s body on March 29 — one day after the man’s son placed a bag containing $25,000 inside the women’s restroom of a McDonald’s in San Ysidro.The body of the Norwalk victim was found in Mexico on April 14, one day after the victim’s family tried, but did not succeed, to pay a $25,000 ransom to a woman whom law enforcement believes was Matla, at a Lowe’s parking lot in Norwalk, according to court documents.According to the DOJ, on April 22, a Pasadena woman called law enforcement to report a family member had been kidnapped in Mexico with a ransom demand of $20,000.One of the kidnappers, calling from a Mexican phone number, informed the victim’s family that a pregnant woman would pick up the cash at a Food 4 Less parking lot in Lynwood. That same day, law enforcement rescued the victim, who was being held hostage at the same Tijuana hotel as the first two kidnapping victims. Nine suspects were arrested by Mexican authorities at the hotel.Sanchez was arrested in San Diego on Sunday and was expected to make his initial appearance Monday in Los Angeles federal court. Matla made her initial court appearance Friday and remains in federal custody.The complaint alleges that Matla crossed the border from Mexico into the U.S. to pick up ransom payments from victims’ family members.A review of U.S.-Mexico border crossing records, security camera videos from the various pickup locations, and social media led law enforcement to identify Matla as the woman sent to San Ysidro, Norwalk and Lynwood to pick up the ransom money on the dates in question, the affidavit alleges.Records show that Sanchez received wire transfers from two of the kidnapping victims, the complaint alleges.

The contemnor, Harmeet Singh, is accused of creating a YouTube account titled “Ugly face of Indian Judiciary, Ludhiana”, and uploading videos “lambasting” the judicial officers by leveling false allegations against them. Through the said channel, it is alleged, the contemnor has openly criticized the District & Sessions Judge, Ludhiana and ADJ Ranjit Kumar Jain for allegedly manipulating his transfer to Mansa Sessions Division. The contemnor has also leveled such allegations against two sitting Judges of the High Court. The proceedings have been initiated pursuant to a reference by the District & Sessions Judge, Ludhiana, who stated that through his channel, the contemnor had attempted to intimidate the Judges with the sole motive of seeking his transfer back to Ludhiana. During the course of hearing, the contemnor informed the Court that he had already been punished pursuant to a departmental enquiry and four of his annual grade pay increments were stopped with cumulative effect under Rule 5(v) to (ix) of the Punjab Civil Services (Punishment & Appeal) Rules, 1970. He accordingly contended the present contempt proceedings would amount to double jeopardy. It was also argued that putting material on the YouTube does not amount to “publication” for the public at large because the YouTube account is a personal one and is restricted only to few acquaintances. Refuting these arguments the bench comprised by Justice Jawant Singh and Justice Sant Parkash observed, “After having heard learned counsel for the parties and going through the voluminous record on the file, we are of the considered view that on account of the variant stands of both the parties, it would be in the interest of justice, if proper charge is framed against the respondent – contemnor and opportunity is given to substantiate his claim by way of producing evidence, if any. The contentions so raised on behalf of the respondent – contemnor with regard to the double jeopardy, the circulation by way of YouTube not amounting to publication and whether it amounted to scandalizing the judicial system, are the moot questions which can be answered only after the evidence and submissions of both the parties are evaluated.” The court thus proceeded to frame charges against the contemnor and posted the matter for consideration on September 24.
