The SEC said Moody’s found the problem in January 2007, fixed it the next month, but waited until January 2008 before changing the underlying ratings, affecting nearly $1bn of debt.

And average house prices were 0.6 per cent lower in the three months to November.The decline reduced the average UK house price to £208,585.But excluding London and the South East, the average UK price in November was just £173,203.Month-on-month prices across the UK also fell by 0.1 per cent in October, and by 0.8 per cent in September, the data showed.Compared to the same time in 2009, prices were up four per cent in November – yet this was lower than October’s yearly increase of 5.5 per cent.The decline in house prices was reflected in figures also released yesterday by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).While RICS reported a slowdown in falling prices, some economists think the housing marking has a little way to go before bottoming out.“Given that house prices have already fallen by some three per cent on the Nationwide and Halifax measures, we believe that they will fall by around seven per cent in 2011,” commented Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight.FAST FACTS | AVERAGE HOUSE PRICESEngland: £216,065 Scotland: £164,098N.

The first example of a ‘Vertical Forest’ (il Bosco Verticale) was inaugurated in October 2014 in Milan in the Porta Nuova Isola area, as part of a wider renovation project led by Hines Italia. Milan’s Vertical Forest consists of two towers of 80 and 112 metres, hosting 480 large and medium trees, 300 small trees, 11,000 perennial and covering plants and 5,000 shrubs. The equivalent – over an urban surface of 1,500 m2 – of 20,000 m2 of forest and undergrowth.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe Vertical Forest is an architectural concept which replaces traditional materials on urban surfaces using the changing polychromy of leaves for its walls. The biological architect relies on a screen of vegetation, needing to create a suitable microclimate and filter sunlight, and rejecting the narrow technological and mechanical approach to environmental sustainability.Save this picture!© Paolo RosselliBiological Habitats:The Vertical Forest increases biodiversity. It promotes the formation of an urban ecosystem where various plant types create a separate vertical environment, but which works within the existing network, able to be inhabited by birds and insects (with an initial estimate of 1,600 specimens of birds and butterflies). In this way, it constitutes a spontaneous factor for repopulating the city’s flora and fauna.Save this picture!© Paolo RosselliMitigation:The Vertical Forest helps to build a microclimate and to filter fine particles contained in the urban environment. The diversity of plants helps to develop the microclimate which produces humidity, absorbs CO2 and particles, produces oxygen, and protects against radiation and noise pollution.Save this picture!DetailAnti-sprawl:The Vertical Forest is an anti-sprawl method which helps to control and reduce urban expansion. In terms of urban density, each tower constitutes the equivalent of a peripheral area of single family houses and buildings of around 50,000 m2.Save this picture!© Paolo RosselliTrees:The choice of species and their distribution according to the orientation and height of façades is the result of three years of studies carried out alongside a group of botanists and ethologists. The plants which are used on the building were pre-cultivated in a nursery in order for them to become accustomed to similar conditions to those which they will find on the balconies.Save this picture!© Paolo RosselliChanging façades:The Vertical Forest is an ever-evolving landmark of the city, whose colours change depending on the season and the different natures of the plants used. This offers Milan’s population an ev- er-changing view of the city.Save this picture!DetailManagement:The management of the basins where the plants grow is the responsibility of the condominium, as is the maintenance and replacement of all vegetation and the number of plants established for each basin.Save this picture!© Laura CionciHydration and irrigation system:Following micro-meteorological studies, the calculation of irrigation requirements was carried out by examining climatic characteristics and was diversified depending on the exposure of each façade and the distribution of vegetation on each floor.Save this picture!DetailProject gallerySee allShow lessNíall McLaughlin to Curate Irish Contribution at 2016 Venice BiennaleArchitecture NewsHouse in Yokkaichi / SYAPSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Milan, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 A charitable trust has had more than £2.1 million recovered after a Charity Commission inquiry exposed and addressed misconduct and mismanagement in its administration.The Charity Commission found that despite lending £2 million, The Reb Moishe Foundation could not provide evidence to show it had made adequate attempts to protect its assets or recover the loan. The Commission opened a statutory inquiry in May 2015 by which point the total due to the charity had risen to £2,236,401 as a result of interest accrued.The Commission had first engaged with The Reb Moishe Foundation in 2014 over a loan it had made to private commercial company Gladstar Ltd, which was connected to one of the trustees. The inquiry found that poor decision-making regarding the loan had placed the charity’s funds at serious risk. The charity had taken no external investment advice before entering into the loan, and with Gladstar Ltd also based in Gibraltar, recovery of the funds was challenging.The Commission’s inquiry also identified concerns over unmanaged conflicts of interest. A charity trustee was secretary of the company at the time the loan was made, and subsequently became a Director. As a result of the Commission’s intervention, the surviving trustee agreed to transfer the proceeds of the sale of six properties owned by Gladstar Ltd to the charity, which resulted in £2,137,368.50 being vested in the bank account of the Official Custodian for Charities (the OCC).The surviving trustee resigned from the charity and agreed not to take on any other charity trusteeships. Two new trustees were appointed by the settlor, and have opened a new bank account and adopted policies for grant making, investment and conflicts of interest. In October last year, the Commission directed the OCC to transfer the recovered funds to the charity which, including interest, totalled £2,137,736.39.The inquiry closed on 27 February with the publication of the Commission’s report, however the Commission will continue to monitor the new trustees’ application of the new policies and charitable funds.Harvey Grenville, Head of Investigations and Enforcement at the Charity Commission said:“Failings of governance and financial management unfortunately put this charity’s assets on the line. The good news is that, following our intervention, over £2 million can now be put towards important charitable causes.“This inquiry demonstrates that if not properly managed, conflicts of interest can seriously hamper trustees from acting in the best interests of their charity.”Last month, the Charity Commission secured another £1m of funds following an inquiry into an unnamed grant-making charity. Solicitors for the charity had sought trustees’ relief from liability for unauthorised payments totalling approximately £650,000 to three trustees who had been acting as consultants for the charity’s wholly owned subsidiary limited company, and had also sought permission to sell 99% of its shares in the subsidiary limited company.

RSF_en July 5, 2018 Angolan court urged to drop defamation case against two journalists Angolan police unleash dog on reporter covering protest This will be the fourth time in the past 18 months that Marques appears in court on charges of “insulting the public authority” and “offending a sovereign institution” in connection with his October 2016 article on the news website Maka Angola accusing then attorney general João Maria de Sousa of purchasing land illegally. Maka Angola’s founder and editor, Marques is one of Angola’s best known investigative journalists and has repeatedly been arrested and prosecuted as a result of his reporting on corruption. Bras is being tried with him in this case because he reprinted the story in his independent weekly O Crime.The prosecution requested the maximum possible sentence, three years in prison, for Marques and Bras on 15 June. Marques’ lawyer told RSF that he was optimistic because the charges were “baseless.”“Angola has had a change of regime and must now change its behaviour towards journalists,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The promises made by the new president, João Lourenço, to break with his predecessor’s policies and promote press freedom must be translated into action. The justice system must also send a clear signal by dropping all the charges against Rafael Marques et Mariano Bras.” Marques spent six weeks in prison and was tortured in 1999 for describing then President José Eduardo dos Santos as a “corrupt dictator” in an article. He received a six-month suspended prison sentence on a criminal defamation charge in 2015 for a book about human rights violations in Angola’s diamond mines.When President Dos Santos stood down after 38 years of oppressive rule last September, his successor, João Lourenço, undertook to defend “freedom of the press.” His communication minister, João Melo, announced in an interview on 26 March that there would be a “debate (…) as soon as possible” about the decriminalization of press offences.Angola is ranked 121st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Men, women and children: some of whom who have been waiting a decade as applicants. So we can clap ourselves on the back but we are not lily white,” said Cllr Sheahan.Intercultural Cities is a Council of Europe and European commission initiative, which aims to build upon a network of cities worldwide by sharing examples of best practice on integration and intercultural collaboration.According to Doras Luimni integration policy officer, Dr Matt Cannon, the Mid-West migrant rights organisation initiated Limerick’s participation in the Intercultural Cities network in 2012. Dr Cannon also said it was great to see Limerick City and County Council and Limerick Integration Working Group taking on the challenge of intercultural integration and policy-making.“It is very encouraging to hear the words of support from the Cathaoirleach in regard to the plight of asylum seekers. This illustrates the usefulness of these networks, shared experience and learning on the issues relating to immigration and integration,” he added.
