John Dunne Share Jupiter fund to be run by de Blonay Investment house Jupiter said one of its highest-profile managers will take the lead role in its £1bn Financial Opportunities fund from the start of next year.Guy de Blonay will be lead manager, while incumbent Philip Gibbs will be his deputy and retain oversight of all the firm’s financials portfolios as head of the financials team.Swiss-born de Blonay joined Jupiter a year ago to co-manage the Financial Opportunities fund with Gibbs.But with Gibbs running six funds, concern had been raised by independent financial advisers – who advise retail clients – that running such a large range may put pressure on performance.Jupiter said Gibbs will focus on managing the £634m Absolute Return fund and the £170m International Financials fund.“It is prudent to shortly hand day-to-day management of the Financial Opportunities fund to Guy,” Gibbs said in a statement.Many had speculated Gibbs would hand over the reins of the flagship financials fund to de Blonay. In an interview with Reuters in January, Gibbs said he would be involved in the fund for the “foreseeable future.”The fund has grown 806.4 per cent since it launched in 1997, and was one of the few financial funds to sustain growth during the global crisis, returning 16 percent since the end of October 2007, according to Lipper data.It slipped 4.71 per cent in the 12 months to the end of October 2010.A law graduate from the University of Geneva, de Blonay joined Jupiter from Anglo-Australian rival Henderson Group where he had managed the New Star Global Financials fund since 2001.Jupiter has delighted investors since listing in June, its shares climbing more than 70 per cent from its flotation price, buoyed by strong sales of its fund products.

THE cost of Ireland’s debt continued to rise to all-time Eurozone highs yesterday, putting pressure on new Prime Minister Enda Kenny to secure less punitive rates on its €85bn (£73.5bn) bailout despite demands that the country raise its low 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate in return for any relief.The corporate tax issue moved centre-stage over the weekend when French President Nicolas Sarkozy demanded that Ireland put up the tax in return for a one per cent cut in the 5.8 per cent interest rate it pays on its bailout.But Kenny refused, prompting Eurozone leaders to keep Irish interest unchanged while lowering Greece’s rate by one per cent. Following the move, the yield on five-year Irish debt spiked above 9.9 per cent, with rates on ten-year debt similarly jumping briefly above 9.69 per cent.This was in sharp contrast to Greek yields, which dropped slightly to 14.3 per cent on five-year and 12.4 per cent on ten-year bonds. Greece’s debt was effectively restructured as a reward for its progress on reducing its deficit, with bond maturities extended from four years to 7.5.The Eurozone pact also agreed to move forwards with a “common corporate tax base” policy for the entire EU, to be drawn up by the European Commission.However, the proposals, which will be announced tomorrow by EU commissioner Algirdas ?emeta, will not mandate uniform tax rates. Instead, they will attempt to standardise the way corporate taxes are levied, for example, regarding the offset of losses from past years.But Pinsent Masons tax partner Eloise Walker told City A.M.: “Ireland fears that the common corporate tax policy could be a precursor to an EU-wide corporate tax rate.” Overall, the Eurozone pact brokered on Saturday has received a conditional welcome from markets. Fitch Ratings said the deal was progress but “will not resolve market concerns over the ‘solvency’ of some highly indebted euro area member states”. And the House of Lords EU Committee said it had “strong reservations” about how it would be enforced.In a sign that bond investors are still nervous, Portuguese yields spiked above 7.8 per cent on five-year debt yesterday. Spanish yields, however, were down. Fears of Irish default grow over tax row whatsapp Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Monday 14 March 2011 8:58 pm KCS-content Tags: NULL

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Exeter Chiefs have been handed a double boost ahead of Saturday’s Aviva Premiership trip to Gloucester with the news that Gareth Steenson and Brett Sturgess (above) have both agreed new deals with the club.Fly-half Steenson and prop Sturgess have put pen to paper on contracts which will keep them at Sandy Park for a further two years.Leading figures in last season’s promotion-winning squad out of the Championship, the talented duo have followed the lead of team-mates Haydn Thomas and Tom Johnson in committing their futures to the Devon outfit.Dungannon-born Steenson is the second highest points-scorer in the club’s history having joined the Chiefs in 2008 from Westcountry rivals Cornish Pirates, whilst former Northampton Saints and Connacht forward Sturgess has been an ever present in the Premiership this term.Not surprisingly both men are over the moon to have secured their immediate futures with the Chiefs.Steenson (above) said: “Obviously I’m absolutely delighted to have sorted myself out for the foreseeable future at a club I know is not only ambitious, but is also looking to improve all the time. Thankfully we’ve managed to sort out the contract quickly and now I can just focus on my rugby for the rest of the season.“I’ve always said I love it here at Exeter, so to have another two years secured is absolutely great. Obviously it’s been a good start for us in the Premiership, but we now have to finish it off with a big second half to the season.”Although sidelined for three months of the current campaign through injury, Steenson has already shown in the early stages of the season that he is more than capable of producing the goods in the top flight.The hero of last season’s Championship Play-Off success over Bristol, the talented back admits the elevation of the club into the Premiership has been beneficial not only for himself, but also many of his team-mates who were here last term.“A lot of us have been at the club for a few years so it was great when we achieved that aim of getting into the Premiership,” added Steenson. “As a group of players we are all close-knit and enjoy working hard for each other, so it’s a tremendous place to be at right now. Hopefully, as I said, we can build on what we have achieved and move forward over the next few seasons.”Like Steenson, Sturgess was more than happy to prolong his stay in Devon. He added: “I’m now into my fourth season at the club and I really enjoy it down here. I’m settled in well with my wife and our little son, so to have this new deal gives me not only a bit of security, but means I can also concentrate fully on my rugby.“If I’m honest there was too much of a decision to make when the club offered me the deal, but I just wanted to sort out certain bits and bobs. Once we agreed those things, it was all fairly simple and now I just want to focus on playing and helping to take the club forward. “Having been here for a few years I know how ambitious the club are. We achieved one aim with getting into the Premiership last season, but now we want to push on further and I want to be part of that.”The decision of both players to commit to the Chiefs has been welcomed by head coach Rob Baxter, who admits he is close to securing a number of other squad members to new long-term deals.Baxter said: “I think these signings, plus all the others that we are currently in negotiations with, show that as a club we are all about moving forward. We haven’t had to wait too long for decisions from the guys we have been in conversations with. A lot of them are keen to commit their futures to us, so that is excellent news.“Obviously both Brett and Steeno played big parts in our promotion last season and it’s great to keep them on board for the next two years. I still think they are two players who have still got potential to improve and move on from where they are – which is obviously very important to us – and they are also very good members of the squad.“We feel they are the right kind of men to help move us forward and to give us some stability over the coming seasons. As I’ve said before, we want to develop and keep the same culture and beliefs that have served us well in the past, so it’s important we keep guys within the squad who know all about that.”“It’s also good that we have signed them up now. We know we have a very tough second half to the season and whilst it’s nice for people to say a lot of complimentary things about us, the truth of it is we still have a lot of league points we need to go out and try and collect and it’s nice to have focused players. By getting guys signed up like this, it will allow us to focus firmly on what we do which is playing games of rugby.”The added benefit of signing players up early is also that Baxter will not be in the same position as last season when his recruitment drive was delayed by the outcome of the play-offs.“I already feel we are a bit ahead of the game this year,” added the coach. “We haven’t got masses of recruitment to do. I feel nice and comfortable with where we are in terms of our retention of players, so once that is all sorted I think recruitment then becomes relatively easy.“What is so nice about this season is that for a lot of the guys this is their first experience of the Premiership, but I still think they will get better in time. The key is we still need to keep players who we think can push on and improve because as a team and a group of players that is the place we need to go. We are a long way from a finished Premiership team, I think Saturday showed that, but we certainly have to push forward and see where that takes us.” TAGS: Exeter Chiefs See highlights of the Chiefs beating Gloucester in the opening game of this season below:

The Anatomy of Fear By John Haughey | The Center Square LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! Florida is one of eight states where lawmakers adopted 2019 bills creating task forces to study the potential benefits of blockchain in modernizing methods of record-keeping that could save money and enhance the security of online transactions.Senate Bill 1024, sponsored by Sen. Joe Gruters, R-Sarasota, and signed into law in May by Gov. Ron DeSantis, authorizes the establishment of the Florida Blockchain Task Force within the state’s Department of Financial Services (DFS) to develop the state’s cryptocurrency policy and a master plan for how to implement it.Sen. Joe Gruters, R-Sarasota. Photo by Steve Cannon / APThe 13-member task force will include three agency heads or executive directors of cabinet agencies, one certified public accountant with experience in blockchain technology and nine private sector members “with knowledge and experience in blockchain technology.”DeSantis will appoint eight members, the CPA and four general public members. Senate President Bill Galvano and House Speaker Jose Oliva will appoint one general public member each and state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, three. The deadline for task force applicants was Tuesday.Blockchain is, essentially, a block of linked digital recordings of transactions. Once each block is completed, it’s added to the chain, creating a chain of blocks: a blockchain.It is a digital ledger that is already in widespread use in cryptocurrency – such as Bitcoin – as well as in finance, voting validation, authenticating academic credentials and more.Blockchain technologies and crypto-currencies first emerged as potentially viable financial systems with the advent of Bitcoin, invented by an anonymous individual or group under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009.“Blockchain has come a long way from Bitcoin,” writes Fingent Corp. Open Source Team Leader Sreejith Omanakuttan in opensource.com. “The fact that it’s not controlled by any single authority and has no single point of failure makes it very robust, transparent, and incorruptible. It also solves the threat of a middleman manipulating the data. Such inherent strengths account for blockchain’s soaring popularity and explain why it is likely to emerge as a mainstream technology in the immediate future.”Blockchain has since mushroomed in market utility, as noted in SB 1024, and is now used to facilitate billions of dollars of transactions.It is already being integrated by local governments throughout the nation, including in Florida’s Seminole County where Tax Collector Joel M. Greenberg announced in May that the county will begin accepting cryptocurrency for payment, including Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, to pay for services such as property taxes, driver license and ID card fees, as well as tags and titles.The county planned to employ the blockchain payments company, BitPay, to allow it to receive settlement the next business day directly to its bank account in dollars.“We live in a world where technology has made access to services on demand, with same-day delivery and the expectation of highly efficient customer service and we should expect the same from our government.,” Greenberg said. “The aim of my tenure in office is to make our customer experience faster, smarter and more efficient, and to bring government services from the 18th century into the 21st century and one way is the addition of cryptocurrency to our payment options.”The city of Berkeley, Calif., this year approved a pilot project to apply blockchain technology to public financing for public works projects, estimating it would decrease the minimum price of a municipal bond from $5,000 to $10-25, allowing more people to invest in those they support.Berkeley’s pilot program, as well as others in the U.S. and around the world, will be closely watched by state’s fledging task force and Florida lawmakers, which will also rely on the Florida Technology Council’s six-page primer on blockchain implementation.According to an Aug. 27 DFS directive, the task force “will study if and how” state, county, and municipal governments can benefit from a transition to a blockchain-based system for record-keeping, data security, financial transactions, and service delivery and identify ways to improve government interaction with businesses and the public.“The main focus of the task force is to identify the economic growth and development opportunities presented by blockchain technology,” it states. “Appointees will assess the existing blockchain industry in the state and identify innovative and successful blockchain applications currently used by industry and other governments to determine viability for state level, as well as review workforce needs, and academic programs required to build blockchain technology expertise across all relevant industries.”“We will work to explore and develop a master plan for fostering the expansion of blockchain in our state and innovation will keep us at the forefront of this growing technological industry,” Patronis added.

VDTA’s working relationship with Madison, Wisconsin’s premier developer, Urban Land Interests (ULI), spans over twenty years. During that time, VDTA was commissioned for many design assignments in Madison’s city center mainly focusing on office buildings, retail and parking developments, both new and renovation, but never for a residential building.When ULI got control of a parcel that sat adjacent to an existing ULI residential project near downtown Madison – an adaptive re-use of former tobacco warehouses into market-rate rental apartments – VDTA was asked to consider the difficult challenge of creating a luxury rental apartment development that maximized the site’s potential. Another architect, previously commissioned by ULI, prepared a design that was underwhelming, conventional and failed to optimize the site use.Save this picture!© Barbara KarantThe 1.7 acre site was a former material storage yard for a local general contractor. It was unused and overgrown but optimally located. The neighboring uses on all sides of the site required a distinct and specific response. On the north site edge sits the Tobacco Lofts apartments – two historic long brick masonry buildings, originally used to warehouse locally grown tobacco, that parallel each other and share Seven27’s site entry drive. On the south edge is an underutilized city park, an adjunct portion of the neighboring Brittingham Park, separated by Proudfit Street, with views to Monona Bay and Lake Monona.Save this picture!© Barbara KarantThe east edge features the city’s heavily traveled Southwest Commuter bike path which, for the length of the site, also runs along an active railroad line. Additionally, this site edge faces the downtown skyline and Lake Monona as well as more immediate and recent low-rise office and work-live developments. To the west is the historic Bassett Neighborhood, a collection of established small scale, 1 and 2 story single family homes. Every edge of the site faced a unique condition and would require a unique design response to mesh with the context.Save this picture!© Barbara KarantNot only does VDTA’s design for Seven27 address the contextual conditions of each site edge but is also achieves twenty more apartment units than previous design solutions proposed. The design for the building – a U-shaped plan with varying height wings – is oriented toward the south for views to the bay and lake, as well as optimum access to daylight and natural ventilation. The western face, steps down to 3-stories and its massing is shaped to smaller “house-sized” elements to best mimic the single-family homes across the street. The two wings forming the “U”, create arms that form a landscaped courtyard — an extension of the abutting city parkland — embracing green space into the center of the building and covering the underground parking with a communal use green roof and terrace.Save this picture!© Barbara KarantSeven27’s design creates a dialogue with the neighboring Tobacco Lofts through the building’s height, massing and materiality – a 4-story tan colored brick façade mediates the height of the two loft warehouse buildings with their cream colored masonry. Along the east, mirroring the energy of the railroad tracks and bike path, is Seven27’s longest wing, echoing the linear orientation of the Tobacco Loft’s warehouse buildings.VDTA’s sustainable core philosophies influence can be found throughout the design. Rain gardens, located just south of the courtyard, collect the outfall from the roof leaders and allowing it to permeate back into the water table. A large green roof occupies a portion of the covered garage and is designed to seamlessly merge into the adjacent terrain, while providing a recreation and gathering area for the building residents.Save this picture!© Mike RebholzTaking advantage of the site’s proximity to the downtown area, as well as public transportation and recreational activities, the team designed the project with a reduced level of parking from the market and supplemented with significantly more bike storage than is commonplace in the area.The residential units are designed with a highly efficient floor plans, minimizing the overall footprint of the building. In addition, large high performance glazing units are located in all units, allowing for daylighting regardless of view. These windows also contribute to an increased ability to utilize natural ventilation. While the building envelope construction varies depending on context, the performance is consistent and high. Exterior rigid insulation coupled with inter-stud batt insulation provides walls with a high R value, allowing for minimized energy usage within the units. Zoned hot water radiant flooring is embedded in the floor to provide efficient temperature control, and provisions to connect to the existing adjacent geothermal fields have been included incorporated into the design.Save this picture!© Mike RebholzProject gallerySee allShow lessStudents of Ball State Construct Parametric Tensegrity Structure for Local Art FairSelected Projectsmatterbetter Launches Competition in Honor of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Madison, WI, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

printSubstance abuse is a growing problem on college campuses, and TCU has joined the effort to help support those struggling with drug addiction.Every week, the TCU peer support group meets at University Christian Church to help TCU students in struggles with substance abuse and addiction.“It was nice to go somewhere and be able to meet people who are on campus and are in the same boat as me,” said Jessica, a member of the support group who asked to withhold her last name for privacy reasons.The TCU peer support group was created in 2012 to offer support to students looking for help with substance abuse and addiction problems. A study conducted by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse found that 1 in 4 college students meet the medical standards for substance abuse.During the group’s weekly meetings, members talk about various topics related to their sobriety. Caroline Albritton, the group’s facilitator, said discussions often focus on acceptance and the importance of friendships and family.“The only criteria for a student to attend is the desire to change his or her substance use,” Albritton said.In order to protect the anonymity of the group members, the meetings are only open to TCU students. However, members of TCU’s faculty and staff, who are also in recovery, may attend to offer sponsorship, Albritton said.Jessica said she joined the group her sophomore year after her room was raided and authorities found drugs and alcohol. She said she was hesitant to join but was surprised by how much she enjoyed the group.After being with the group for a year, Jessica said the biggest lesson she has learned is that she is not alone. She said she would love to find a way to further promote the support group and its mission.The TCU peer recovery support group meets every Thursday from 6-7:30 p.m. in room 306 of University Christian Church.
