Already booking a third of sales in the region, Thiam wants to go much further by doubling Asian premiums over the next three years. Having tested shareholders’ appetite for a transformational acquisition – and found it wanting – Prudential will likely have to grow organically, or by snapping up smaller bolt-ons. Initially, Thiam’s target seems somewhat over-optimistic. But there is huge hope for expansion in Asian emerging markets. In the UK, the life insurance penetration rate is 13 per cent while Japan’s is 8.3 per cent. In India and China it is far lower, around four and two per cent respectively. McKinsey estimates that 40 per cent of growth in the life assurance market will be generated by Asia, while the compound annual growth rate in China will exceed 15 per cent for the next five years. With markets at home maturing, Thiam’s decision to look east for inspiration could still pay off. last_img read more

Six Nations Team of Round Three

first_img Six Nations Team of Round ThreeThere may have been only two Six Nations games this weekend, but there was plenty of controversy to make up for it.Both winners hit the 40-point mark as Wales secured an unlikely but well-earned Triple Crown and Ireland came alive after a tough start to the tournament.What players stood out across the two matches, contributing to one of the highest-scoring days in Six Nations rugby?Six Nations Team of Round Three 15. Liam Williams (Wales)He’s nicknamed the ‘bomb defuser’ and he lived up to it this weekend not only from his ability under the high ball but from dismantling dangerous England attacks.His positioning stopped Maro Itoje profiting from a chargedown and he pluckily hoovered up a couple of turnovers. 14. Louis Rees-Zammit (Wales)Another excellent outing, despite not getting that many carrying opportunities.He saved one try by tackling Elliot Daly man and ball when the England full-back had Jonny May screaming up on his outside and should have scored himself after Callum Sheedy’s intercept. 13. Garry Ringrose (Ireland)Probably now the frontrunner for the Lions outside-centre jersey. Made 100 metres with ball in hand, second most in the Ireland team, and picked a weak shoulder for his side’s first try. Jacob Whitehead selects his best composite team from this weekend’s two matches TAGS: Highlight Good work again from Ireland with Will Connors finishing perfectly. #GuinnessSixNations #ITAvIRE pic.twitter.com/7lnrtCcd2O— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 27, 2021Two tries for the openside, who can’t stop scoring against Italy, but the highlight as ever were his trademark chop tackles. A human bear-trap. The pressure pays off! Garry Ringrose picks a great line between two defenders and stays low to burrow over the line for the try.#GuinnessSixNations #ITAvIRE pic.twitter.com/01W5S6Ov4g— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 27, 2021Even more impressive was his offload for Hugo Keenan’s try, the two Leinster men combining with aplomb. 12. Robbie Henshaw (Ireland)It was his 50th cap this weekend and one of the most unsung players in European rugby deserves some recognition.Flourishing from starting a run of games at 12, Henshaw made the most tackles of any back this weekend, shutting down an Italy attack which looked far less potent than in recent weeks. 11. James Lowe (Ireland)Made the most metres of any player in the third week.He’s been given grief for not transferring his club form onto the international stage, but Lowe forced Luca Sperandio to be hauled off at half-time and gave replacement Mattia Bellini a torrid time too. Unlucky to have a try ruled out. 10. Callum Sheedy (Wales)No, he didn’t start, and yes, Dan Biggar’s ingenuity set Wales on their way. But Sheedy looked so calm when he came on, with him at the helm Wales comfortably sailed through a minor English storm at 24-24.His clean break showed the running game that Wales have been missing since Gareth Anscombe’s injury and he kicked his goals superbly. 9. Kieran Hardy (Wales) How good was this from Will Connors?Expert chop tackle Quickly back to his feet Wins the turnover and pops the ball up to Tadhg Beirne rather than diving on it Connors had a cracking game today.Unlucky not to be named man-of-the-match imo. pic.twitter.com/iC3AgcFk03— Cian Tracey (@CianTracey1) February 27, 2021 8. Taulupe Faletau (Wales)An obscenely busy day. Nobody made more ground for Wales in Cardiff than Faletau, and make no mistake – these were attritional metres.Billy Vunipola was also brilliant – their battle, the highlight of Saturday afternoon’s game, will continue until the moment the first Lions Test kicks off.Who would make your Six Nations Team of Round Two? Email [email protected] to let us know. hesitation from the Wales scrum-half! Watch the third Welsh try of the match, right here #GuinnessSixNations #WALvENG pic.twitter.com/wTSO1WIJDz— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 27, 2021Jamison Gibson-Park, Ben Youngs, and Kieran Hardy all had impressive games, but Hardy, in the biggest match of his career, was the star nine.His try was impishly brilliant, but most crucially his box-kicking was the match of Youngs’s efforts, putting the English back three in trouble throughout. 1. Dave Kilcoyne (Ireland)Won a key scrum penalty for Ireland when they were encamped on their own line and made himself a constant nuisance in the loose.Doesn’t get that many opportunities with Cian Healy and Ed Byrne about, but Andy Farrell will hope the injury which forced him off after 50 minutes isn’t serious.center_img Can’t get to the shops?

Iain Henderson (Ireland)Scorer of the try that wasn’t, ruining fantasy teams everywhere. That said, Henderson was even more impressive in defence.Ireland’s choke tackles were key to slowing Italy’s ball, and it’s difficult to think of another player in world rugby as good at this singular skill. 6. Tom Curry (England)I’ve been a bit cheeky here, shifting Curry to blindside, but the Sale flanker was a permanent menace.Made 18 tackles, the most of anyone in the game, and seemingly warped space and time in the first half to catch his own chargedown on the full. Unbelievably durable. 7. Will Connors (Ireland)Tadhg Beirne won Man of the Match but that feels very harsh on Connors – maybe the Italian commentators confused the two rampaging blue scrum caps! 2. Ronan Kelleher (Ireland)Had a few issues in the lineout, but omnipresent in the loose.Plays with the dynamism of a young Jamie George and could be beginning to nose ahead in his battle with Rob Herring for the starting jersey. 3. Kyle Sinckler (England)Kyle Sinckler made 12 carries against Wales – only Billy Vunipola made more for England (Getty Images)At his bullish best in Cardiff. Made double-digits in carries and tackles, and had his fingers all over Anthony Watson’s first-half score.Also managed to avoid being wound up by Alun Wyn Jones. 4. Alun Wyn Jones (Wales)Speaking of the man, Jones had his best game of the championship so far.Wales won 16 of 17 lineouts, with their captain at the heart of it. He made a stack of carries, but most impressively seemed to be the first player to every other breakdown. Could probably clear out the Hulk.

Coming out on top against an international shortlist that included Zaha Hadid Architects, SOM’s 230m tall proposal ‘The Pole Star’ features four connected prisms which twist 90 degrees near the top.The competition, run by developers Serneke, called for proposals for a 32,000 square meter mixed-use masterplan, including a 200+ meter residential tower, in Gothenburg’s Lindholmen area. A particular focus for the jury was for proposals to “demonstrate how the skyscraper can be integrated into the structure of the neighborhood,” adding that “the building should be a part of the area’s social and architectural context, not stand as a solitary monolith.”Read more about the jury’s decision after the break+ 11Save this picture!Courtesy of SernekeIn their selection of SOM’s proposal, the jury called the design “an identity-building proposal that takes a smart holistic approach to both the skyscraper and the urban environment. The proposal integrates the local environment into a whole that allows for a vibrant urban environment. The skyscraper’s distinctive identity adds character and vitality to Lindholmen and will be Gothenburg’s new landmark and pride.”A particular element of praise was the urban plan for the area, contributed by Entasis, which with its “safe and well thought-out” layout “handles connections admirably, both north-south and east-west, creating meeting points and spaciousness in a way that encourages outdoor gatherings.” This layout also includes an “inclusive” urban park which “can become a meeting place for all,” with the jury adding that “having the park as part of a lush, ring-shaped walkway is positive from the city’s perspective.”Save this picture!Courtesy of SernekeFocusing on the design’s centerpiece, the jury added: “The skyscraper is both simple and compelling in design. By simple means, the building exhibits variation both vertically and laterally, through a play with the façade’s material in concrete and glass. Balconies and patios are cleverly incorporated into the design as a whole. The result is both eye-catching and intricately fashioned.”The scale and position of the edifice is well-established both in its location and in the viewing distance. Its proposed cren- ellation with recommended lighting has the potential to become identity-forming, both for the location and for Gothenburg. A well-developed idea for the top floor makes the tower an inviting destination.”Save this picture!Courtesy of SernekeThe jury’s selection concludes: “Overall, the proposal is successful in its endeavor to create an attractive urban setting and a visually striking superstructure.”The jury consisted of: Björn Siesjö, architect SAR/MSA City Architect Stadsbyggnadskontoret Göteborg Anders Svensson, architect SAR/MSA, the Älvstad Project Stadsbyggnadskontoret Göteborg Olle Lindkvist, Älvstranden Utvecklings AB Erica Bengtsson, Environmental Strategist, Älvstranden Utvecklings AB Ola Serneke, VD Serneke AB Alban Herlitz, Project Development Manager Serneke AB Louise Masreliez, architect SAR/MSA appointed by Sveriges Arkitekter Christer Malmström, architect SAR/MSA appointed by Sveriges Arkitekter Save this picture!Courtesy of SernekeCompetitionKarlavagnsplatsen Tower CompetitionAwardWinnerProject NameThe Pole StarArchitectsEntasis Arkitekter, Skidmore, Owings & MerrillLocationKarlavagnsgatan, Gothenburg, SwedenSOM Design TeamKent Jackson, Peter Jackson, Martin Grinnell & Yasemin KologluEntasis Design TeamChristian Cold, Jorrit Verduin, Maika Moerner JensenPhotographsCourtesy of Serneke, Entasis ArkitekterCompetitionKarlavagnsplatsen Tower CompetitionAwardWinnerProject NameThe Pole StarLocationKarlavagnsgatan, Gothenburg, SwedenPhotographsCourtesy of Serneke, Entasis Arkitekter Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Copy#TagsArchitecture CompetitionsUrbanismUrban PlanningMaster PlanResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsGothenburgScandinaviaAwarded CompetitionsHousingUrban PlanningResidentialSkidmore Owings & MerrillText Message HtmlCite: Rory Stott. “SOM Wins Competition for Sweden’s Tallest Tower” 18 Jun 2014.

Mass protests in France

first_imgParis police swept the tents and banners of young protesters from the Place de la Republic on the morning of April 11. The youth had occupied the square since March 31. That’s when demonstrations throughout France of more than 1 million unionists and students protested the new anti-labor law pushed by the government of François Hollande. The new law would make it even harder to find secure employment. It would allow bosses to fire workers without the kinds of notice and protections the French working class had won in earlier struggles. It also eliminates the guaranteed 35-hour work week.  By all indications, this new incarnation of 2011’s “indignant ones” in Spain and Occupy Wall Street in the United States will be back, even if police pushed protesters out of the squares of the 60 cities and towns outside the capital. In all those squares, tent cities arose. People stayed up all night to debate the big questions facing their future. By all appearances, the young people hold the support of the unions and social organizations to the left of the misnamed Socialist Party that Hollande heads.Two days earlier, on April 9, some 390,000 people in cities and towns all over France had taken to the streets to trash the new anti-labor law. This was the first weekend demonstration in the continuing series of protests. It included the participation of families with young children.Two major union federations, the CGT and FO, backed the protests, but university and high school students and young workers continued to lead the way. The demands have gone beyond the new law. Even as early as February people wanted to take the protests to another level. They decided after a protest they would just stay in the streets. (theguardian.com, April 8)“On March 31, at the time of the labor law protests, that’s what happened,” a former delivery driver told the Guardian. “There was torrential rain, but still everyone came back here to the square. Then at 9 p.m., the rain stopped and we stayed. We came back the next day, and as we keep coming back every night, it has scared the government because it’s impossible to define.“There’s something here that I’ve never seen before in France — all these people converge here each night of their own accord to talk and debate ideas — from housing to the universal wages, refugees, any topic they like.” Occupy and the ‘indignant ones’Anyone who participated in the Occupy Wall Street actions starting in the fall of 2011 in the U.S. will recognize the scenes in France. The young people seize plazas in cities and towns and stay on their feet all night to protest and discuss. Demonstrators in France have even adopted the OWS term “1%” to refer to the bosses and bankers who rule the country.These actions are also similar to the demonstrations of the “indignant ones” that began in Spain in May 2011. And now some of the “Nuit Debout” (“Up All Night”) protests have spread from France across the border to Belgium and back to Spain. The youth don’t want to give up their spaces for free and democratic discussion of policies that determine their future.As in Spain and the U.S. in 2011, however, it looks like the French government is ordering the repressive force of the capitalist state to stop these discussions.President Hollande, the head of the nominally “socialist” Socialist Party, is still pushing for the new anti-labor law. In the week before the latest protests, the government made a few concessions. So far the reaction is “too little, too late.” The formal organizations of the students are still calling for more demonstrations on April 28.In Greece and Spain large sections of the population who used to back social democratic parties have broken with those that betrayed their working-class supporters by promoting austerity. In Britain too, Labor Party members broke with the neoliberal Tony Blair wing and elected a new leader from the party’s far left. The outcome of the clash depends not only on the determination of the youth, but also on the support and intervention of France’s huge, multinational working class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Nielsen: Fall Anhydrous Applications Not Recommended

first_img Nielsen: Fall Anhydrous Applications Not Recommended SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Nov 4, 2020 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Nielsen: Fall Anhydrous Applications Not Recommended Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/fall-anhydrous-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Many are well into fall fieldwork and some will be wrapping up harvest and moving on to that soon. If you’re thinking about doing a fall application of anhydrous, know that it comes with some risk.“And that risk is losing some of that nitrogen before next summer,” says Purdue Extension Corn Specialist Bob Nielsen. “Even if you’re using inhibitor, we estimate that maybe upwards of 15% of the nitrogen that goes out in the fall is gone by next summer when the crop begins to take it up.”Nielsen says that he just doesn’t recommend a fall application of anhydrous but understands why farmers might consider it.“Fall anhydrous is often less expensive, the risk of compaction, as we have this year, is often less in the fall than it is in our usually wet springs, and the availability of labor and time is often greater in the fall. Especially this year with a somewhat early, if not a normal, harvest. I understand those logistical compromises that go through people’s heads as they as they think about fall anhydrous, but again, we just have to remind ourselves that it is not a very efficient way of applying nitrogen. And we’re not really strongly in favor of fall anhydrous as a rule of thumb.”Nielsen joins Purdue Extension Soybean Specialist Shaun Casteel to discuss this and much more about soil fertility in the Purdue Crop Chat Podcast, found at hoosieragtoday.com and on iTunes.

The authorities already blocked several news websites on 26 October in a wave of censorship taking place less than a month before parliamentary elections.———————————————————-27.10.06Website blocked one month ahead of parliamentary electionsOn 26 October 2006, access to the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) website ( http://www.bahrainrights.org ) was blocked by Batelco, Bahrain’s main Internet service provider (ISP). This action may be linked to the website’s coverage of “Bandargate”, a political scandal involving the royal family and several Bahraini politicians.In March 2006, the Social Development Ministry threatened the directors of BCHR with disciplinary action if they did not stop their activities. The Cassation Court had ordered the centre’s closure on 22 February. Members of the organisation currently risk a prison sentence of up to six months and a 500 BD (approx. 1,045 euro) fine.The vice-president of BCHR, Abd al-Hadi al-Khawaja, was arrested in September 2004 after publishing an article in which he criticised Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa al-Khalifa and denounced the country’s economic problems (see IFEX alert of 29 September 2004).The BCHR is a non-governmental organisation that promotes human rights in Bahrain.

Newspaper editor released after being held overnight

first_imgNews EthiopiaAfrica RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia News November 14, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor released after being held overnight Follow the news on Ethiopia Organisation Help by sharing this information EthiopiaAfrica Reporters Without Borders has learned that Melaku Desmisse, the editor of the Amharic-language version of the big-circulation weekly The Reporter, was in fact released on 10 October, the day after his arbitrary arrest for unknown reasons on 9 October.Desmisse was arrested in Addis Abbaba by police from the southwestern region known as the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Regional State (SNNPR), who took him to the SNNPR capital of Awasa.After being detained overnight in an Awasa prison he was released in Awasa the next day without being taken before a court or being notified of the charges that led to his arrest.————-11,10,2013 – Editor illegally arrested and removed from AddisReporters Without Borders is alarmed by newspaper editor Melaku Desmisse’s illegal arrest in Addis Ababa by police from the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Regional State (SNNPR) and his subsequent illegal transfer to Awasa, the capital city of the SNNPR.The editor of the Amharic-language version of the independent big-circulation weekly The Reporter, Desmisse was arrested for unclear reasons in his office on 9 October, taken to a police station in the Addis Ababa suburb of Bole, and from there was taken more than 250 km south of Addis Ababa to Awasa.“The Ethiopian government reminds the media of the law so often that it is incomprehensible that it is allowing the police and judicial authorities to flout the law in such a blatant fashion,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The SNNPR police have no jurisdiction in Addis Ababa and it is completely illegal for them to seize a journalist working there.“If Desmisse is accused of breaking any law, he should be brought before a federal court in Addis Ababa, which alone has the authority to try him. In the meantime, we call for the immediate release of this journalist, especially as the reason for his arrest remains puzzling.”Desmisse’s arrest may be linked to the publication of an article on 4 September wrongly reporting the dismissal of three SNNPR’s vice-presidents. The newspaper retracted the story and officially apologised on 8 September. No one has been able to contact Desmisse since his arrest and he is reportedly being interrogated by the SNNPR police.Owned by Media Communication Centre, the English and Amharic-language versions of The Reporter together constitute Ethiopia’s leading independent newspaper, one that is often the target of intimidation.The newspaper’s Amharic-language website, which gets up to 30,000 visitors a day, was blocked in April 2012.The Reporter editor in chief Amare Aregawi was illegally arrested and transferred outside Addis Ababa in August 2008. A few months after his release on bail, he sustained a serious head injury when attacked by unidentified individuals.Ranked 137th out of 179 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Ethiopia remains a very dangerous country for journalists.Photo : AFP Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditationcenter_img May 21, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home Receive email alerts May 18, 2021 Find out more to go further News February 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
