Hirai, 50, currently runs the firm’s network products and services division, which includes Sony’s games business as well as newer ventures such as music and movie streaming services. He is a fluent English speaker known for his presentation skills, which were on display at the unveiling of Sony’s new handheld games device in a Tokyo ceremony in January. Stringer, who serves as Sony chairman, chief executive and president, said he would retain his current positions, for the financial year starting in April. The Sony boss, formerly an Emmy-award winning TV journalist, was brought in as chairman and chief executive in 2005, and added the role of president in 2009. In January he denied he was a candidate for the chairmanship of the BBC. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Despite the market crash, I’d still invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA

first_imgDespite the market crash, I’d still invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA Image source: Getty Images Tezcan Gecgil, PhD | Tuesday, 10th March, 2020 In recent weeks, markets have crashed worldwide. And volatility has reached new highs. Yet seasoned investors realise that market corrections are a normal symptom of a healthy bull market. And sooner or later, shares of quality companies bounce back.Therefore, today I’d like to take a step away from all the financial doom-and-gloom headlines that are inevitably be affecting the mood of the average British investor and remind our readers that savvy investors keep a clear focus on their financial goals. Investing decisions we make during a choppy period or a bear market are likely to have a substantial effect on our wealth in future years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Putting money towards future goalsOne big decision is what type of investment vehicle to use. I like ISAs as they offer tax-efficient benefits. Thus I believe every UK resident should learn more about the different types of ISAs available to them, with an emphasis on Stocks and Shares ISAs.Currently, there’s a maximum subscription allowance of £20,000 per adult per tax year. Individuals can divide this in across a Cash ISA, a Stocks and Shares ISA, a Lifetime ISA (maximum of £4,000) or an Innovative Finance ISA.Which one to choose? Well, over the past few days we’ve seen several central banks around the world cut interest rates in response to the coronavirus. It would not be wrong to conclude that the race to zero interest rates is on.A low-interest-rate environment isn’t kind to savers. And easy-access Cash ISA rates are currently below 1.5%.Although cash has its place in portfolios, it’s probably not ideal to hoard huge amounts of cash. I wouldn’t rely on cash savings to produce a rising passive income in retirement years.Therefore, I’d encourage our readers to learn more about the potential benefits of maximising their savings in a Stocks and Shares ISA.Making the most out of the allowanceIndividuals can usually invest in three ways:a) With a lump sum only, from a year-end bonus, for example. This method gives the portfolio a longer time for growth during the year. b) For those with irregular income, an initial lump sum, followed by top-up payments works best.c) With regular (usually monthly) payments, which can be set up automatically by direct debit.My personal experience is that regular investing helps me stay more disciplined and patient. It may also give anyone the stamina to stick it out in the tough or volatile times.Where to investThere’s a wide range of investment options available for a Stocks and Shares ISA. You could invest directly in FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 shares. Both indices offer the possibility of investing in a range of dividend-paying stocks, such as Aviva, Barclays, Bellway, Britvic, Centamin, Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline, National Grid, Persimmon, Tate & Lyle or WPP. The recent market crash has boosted dividend yields of many shares. And any capital gains delivered by the stock would be an added bonus on top of the dividend. Another option could be to invest in low-cost exchange-traded funds (ETFs). If you’re interested in dividend stocks, then the iShares UK Dividend UCITS ETF may be a possibility.Buying during a market free-fall takes courage.

England Saxons player analysis: Maro Itoje

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Maro Itoje was spiky and destructive for England Saxons on Friday evening in Cork, but he was also intelligent and resourceful in attack. We analyse his role in the visitors’ 18-9 win over Ireland Wolfhounds. TAGS: Saracens Rising star: Maro Itoje chops down Keith Earls at the Irish Independent Stadium England Saxons player analysis: Maro Itoje“Joy and jubilation” – those were the words uttered by Maro Itoje when the England Under 20 skipper was asked to articulate his thoughts at the final whistle of last summer’s Junior World Championship final.With due respect to all sportspeople, the level of eloquence was far above that of an average post-match interview. Then again, Itoje could never be described as average.The first thing that disarms you is an engaging but totally humble manner, quickly followed by the sheer size of this special 20 year-old. Standing six foot four, he is filling out rapidly and has already broken the 18 stone barrier without losing much in the way of awesome athleticism.Strong enough represent his country at shot put and intelligent enough to be reading politics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, the Saracen exudes a palpable aura. Future England captain, British and Irish Lion in 2017, World Cup bolter even – no goal seems too farfetched.Replacing a groggy James Gaskell 15 minutes into the action at Irish Independent Park on Friday evening, Itoje went about reinforcing the opinions of his many admirers. Alongside the simply monstrous Dave Ewers – who stormed through a nine-carry, 19-tackle performance – he made things extremely awkward for an experienced Ireland Wolfhounds pack.All aboard: The Itoje Express bypasses Michael BentItoje put in a huge defensive shift for the Saxons, encompassing 14 tackles and plenty of disruption including one first-half ruck turnover. But here is a closer look at his role in the two tries that secured a gritty, grafting 18-9 win for Jon Callard’s side.Henry Slade slices overUnfamiliar combinations across both sides and a whistle-happy approach from Welsh referee Nigel Hennessy at the breakdown made for a fairly grim first quarter, and the all-consuming scrappiness extended to set-piece. Despite possessing a powerful scrummaging unit, the Saxons were forced to live off untidy ball. Even so, they managed to recover here to launch the attack that eventually saw Henry Slade open the scoring:Exeter Chiefs No 8 Thomas Waldrom was excellent all game and this is a clean-up operation from the base, but the energy of Itoje is vital. Just seven minutes after coming on, he first leaches onto the carrier and then blows over the ruck as Waldrom hits the deck. As the screenshot shows, he specifically targets Ulsterman Iain Henderson – a large, effective presence on the deck:This allows scrum-half and skipper Lee Dickson to inject verve from a rather stagnated situation and the Saxons can probe out wide on the right. When they come back to the left, Itoje is subtly important once more:The Saxons click into their structure here, Sam Burgess finding Slade with neat pulled-back pass and Chris Pennell then exploiting some space. But it is far from an off-the-cuff move. Watch Itoje identify himself in the primary wave as Dickson before looks to hit Burgess at first-receiver:Two purposes are served here. Primarily, Burgess has a forward pod to play off and can either take the option of hitting them up or cutting them out to a second distributor behind. Secondly though, the opposition are also made aware of some big midfield runners.Isolating the moment Burgess releases the ball, we can see how Itoje’s presence holds the Wolfhounds line:From here, with Saxons over the gain-line, the former Harrow School student really begins to demonstrate his intuition. He does not rush to a ruck where he is not needed. Instead, he trusts teammates to secure possession so he can take up another role in the attack. This is called breakdown resourcefulness:Again, Itoje communicates to Dickson with a hand gesture, bringing clarity to the pattern. He does not receive the pass but smashes the ruck to ensure quick ball from Rob Webber‘s carry. He could probably keep his balance slightly better, but the aim – to get rid of tackle-jackal supremo Sean O’Brien– is met. The Saxons can come around the corner from the next phase:This time Burgess barrels on, and the Wolfhounds envelop him. Tracking Itoje (circled in white), we can see how he makes the late decision to ‘double ruck’, hitting a second consecutive breakdown just to get beyond the ball and ensure nobody can come through onto Dickson:After Waldrom and Ewers combine, the Wolfhounds are stretched to breaking point thanks to Elliot Daly’s burst and Slade darts in: Having been involved to varying degrees in four of eight phases up to this point– an impressive ratio for a lock in mid-range attack– Itoje helps finish the job. Making his way to this wide ruck, he curves slightly to occupy the fringe defence. It works perfectly. Scrambling back, Keith Earls and Jack McGrath are both occupied, as you can see by the direction of their shoulders:Slade can sneak in with a cute angle to the left of his second-row’s decoy line. An hour later, Itoje was instrumental in the Saxons’ match-clinching try too.Christian Wade wings inTellingly, the game’s only other five-pointer came from the foundation of improvised ball-retention at set-piece, this time a lineout. In windy conditions, Saxons had lost six of 11 throws up to this point.As he had been from the earlier scrum, Waldrom instigates the rescue act by calling and claiming a flat throw, taking the elements out of the equation and setting up a well-organised, forceful maul while the Wolfhounds are slightly unaware. Carl Fearns breaks away at the perfect time and the movement gathers momentum:Itoje is such an integral cog in this maul, immediately from the point Waldrom collects Luke Cowan-Dickie‘s throw. He wastes no time in moving from the back of the lineout to latch on:Quickly, he provides go-forward and gets in an excellent body position to propel the maul towards the line:As the Saxons forwards creep over the 22, Wolfhounds No 8 Jack Conan begins an impressive attempt at fighting through the maul. However, Itoje assesses the situation, turns his back and peels Conan’s arms away to reduce his threat:This action creates uncertainty among the Wolfhounds defence, and more players flood through onto Itoje under the misapprehension that he is on the ball:Pushing Itoje towards the touchline, the Wolfhounds inadvertently create a favourable angle for Fearns to break off and head towards the posts. On the next phase, Ewers is unleashed again and Itoje races around the corner:His carry is oustanding, simply outmuscling two challengers and almost getting within reach of the whitewash. When Itoje is finally brought down, he places the back in a textbook manner:Although mainly placed on half-backs, game management is a responsibility shared across each member of any team. A man who has captained just about every side he has played for coming up through the ranks, including Saracens Storm in their victorious Aviva A League campaign this season, Itoje retains composure.Aware that possession is paramount, he walks back from the floor into the guard position on the defensive side, subtly shielding scrum-half Joe Simpson from the Wolfhounds fringe tacklers:The Saxons go right, executing another punchy phase off Fearns. From here, Itoje – resourcing himself well again – is in an excellent position to hit the last rugby of the game, winning the ball back for Slade to release Christian Wade: Joe Launchbury was brought into Stuart Lancaster’s senior camp prior to the 2012 South Africa tour just weeks before his 21st birthday. Itoje only exited his teens in October.On Friday night, Callard would not say whether the second-row tyro would be fast-tracked into England’s Six Nations or World Cup plans. He did call Itoje “sensational” though. That is a fairly good place to start.last_img read more

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemCeramicsApavisaTiles – JewelsText description provided by the architects. Good architecture takes its environment into account, particularly surrounding buildings. In Frankfurt am Main, Franken Architekten has taken a literal approach through a digitally drawn façade for a new home and studio in old town Sachsenhausen. Frankfurt’s Alt-Sachsenhausen is a neighborhood that, according to the city, urgently needed to change. Until the 1990s, traditional cider houses dominated the area valued for its entertainment and nightlife, but it was heavily run down in recent years. The city created a preservation statute that placed premiums on the conversion of the gastronomy establishments to housing and other uses. A small scene of art galleries, ad agencies, and fashion and designers shops sprung up in the area, leading some people to call the district SoMa (South of Main), inspired by New York’s famous SoHo (South of Houston) area.Save this picture!SectionFranken Architekten was commissioned to renovate an existing building into a home and studio on Rittergasse in the heart of Alt-Sachsenhausen, but preserving the run-down, three-story building turned out to be prohibitive from the perspectives of economics, construction, and even architectural history. So the architect and client decided to demolish the building and create something new that would nevertheless fit in with the small-scale, village-like atmosphere of the district. The building’s scale and façade had to integrate themselves successfully, so the architects duplicated the form of the existing, simplifying it through the removal of the roof overhangs and tying them together with a stone base.Save this picture!© Oliver TamagniniBut it’s above the stone, in the plaster walls, where the architectural delight is found. For the façade, Franken Architekten employed the notion of the afterimage – the effect of staring at an object for a length of time and seeing a blurry or faded rendition of it after closing one’s eyes. So a fuzzy picture of the demolished building (visible at bottom) would be produced in the new building, but an image that would be blurrier the closer one gets. To achieve this, a computer algorithm scanned drawings of the original to create a new drawing of parallel lines and inserting a “parametric jitter” each time it crossed the trusses. The below video, though in German, illustrates this process both in drawing and in fabrication.Save this picture!© Eibe SînneckenThe transition from drawing to material reality was seamless, since the jittery lines were milled into the plaster panels using a CNC (computer numerical control) router. The architects opted for StoDeco plaster panels, 144 of them with joints patched to create a seamless effect, so the panel joints do not compete with the lines expressing the old building’s afterimage. Furthering the overall effect of the façade is its monochrome finish, which makes the afterimage a subtle effect, rewarding those who take a longer look at the building, rather than just a quick glance.Save this picture!© Oliver TamagniniProject gallerySee allShow lessRegistration Open: European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPAArchitecture NewsRIBA To Open Chapter In IndiaArchitecture News Share CopyWorkshop, Houses, Renovation•Frankfurt am Main, Germany Save this picture!© Eibe Sînnecken+ 28 Share Photographs:  Eibe Sînnecken, Oliver Tamagnini, Axel Stephan Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Kleine Rittergasse 11 / Franken ArchitektenSave this projectSaveKleine Rittergasse 11 / Franken Architekten Manufacturers: Sto ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/579122/kleine-rittergasse-11-franken-architekten Clipboard Germany Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Franken Architekten Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Electrical Work: last_img read more

Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jennie WebbSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe project takes a complex site, challenging brief and budget constraints to produce an elegant, crisp and stimulating building.  Remarkably, although it wasn’t the original intent, and despite no previous experience of building at this scale, Richard went on to build the house himself.Save this picture!© Jennie WebbDeemed in open countryside by the local planning authority and in the curtilage of a listed building it was granted planning permission due to an ‘exceptionally high quality of design’. The house consists of a timber frame new build which links to a small existing stone stable block.  These elements along with the new timber framed outbuilding are ‘anchored’ to the existing stone wall which acts as a shield to the prevailing winds and an axis between the new builds.Save this picture!© Jennie WebbThe design is contextually driven with a simple barn like form, locally sourced materials and framed views. One is aware of the countryside all around whilst any over-looking issues to the client’s existing farmhouse are successfully addressed. The layout takes precedent from the historic Bastles of the area with the living space on the first floor, though this time it is for spatial quality and views rather than defence.  The house is wrapped in a thick larch ‘blanket’ that seamlessly envelopes the roof and walls, below which is a highly insulated and airtight building.  Internally the clever use of natural light and spatial contrast, combined with the warm textures of wood in contrast to clean white washed walls creates a warm and delightful space for the clients to enjoy.Save this picture!Cross SectionLiving and working on site Richard manufactured the entire supersized timber frame in the old hay shed with a specially designed jig.  Local materials have been used throughout the project. The larch cladding was specifically sourced from the Borders and trees felled from the site itself and have been used throughout the house in the bespoke built-in-furniture, kitchen, tables and stairs.  The stone to the gable end of the house and garage was sourced from Northumberland.   Save this picture!© Jennie WebbIncorporating Passivhaus principles the building is designed to the highest standards of energy efficiency whilst not compromising on the design aesthetic.  Super insulation to both the new and existing elements, triple glazing throughout, and an extremely airtight construction combined with mechanical heat recovery ventilation all reduce energy demand, allowing the integrated renewables, which include solar photovoltaics and a biomass boiler, to cover the vast majority of the buildings energy needs.   Great care was taken in the detailing of the all the junctions to avoid thermal bridging; the whole timber frame sits on foamglass blocks, the structure above the huge frameless triple glazed corner glass window is entirely cantilevered in timber.  Rainwater harvesting further reduces the building’s footprint, and careful attention to accessibility, including the inclusion of a small lift, future proofs the house and enhances still further the holistic sustainability of the building.Save this picture!© Jennie WebbThough there was initial apprehension with regard to the self-build approach to such an ambitious building it ultimately proved a key contributor to the project’s success, allowing as it did for a spirit of collaboration between ‘architect’ and ‘builder’ through the whole process  and retaining the quality and design intent to the finished building – a true design and build.  Indeed so successful was the relationship that MawsonKerr and Richard are using this knowledge and experience as a blueprint for a new venture that will look to offer a step change in the construction and development of inspiring design led and truly sustainable housing.Save this picture!© Jennie WebbProject gallerySee allShow lessAre.na Research Platform Launches Grant SchemeIdeasSketching Competition Seeks Compositions of Just 5 LinesArchitecture News Share ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMawsonKerrOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWest WoodburnUnited KingdomPublished on October 05, 2017Cite: “Shawm House / MawsonKerr” 05 Oct 2017.

Man charged with pointing firearm at woman while demanding money for sandals

first_img Pinterest Man charged with pointing firearm at woman while demanding money for sandals Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Facebook A 36-year-old man was arrested after he reportedly pointed a pistol at a woman while demanding money for slide sandals.Marc Anthony Uzzell was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, a third-degree felony, and driving while license suspended, a class C misdemeanor. He is also being held by the U.S. Marshals.The reported assault happened around 6:17 a.m. April 27 as Ector County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the RV Park located near Moss Avenue and Palomino Drive, an ECSO probable cause affidavit detailed.The complainant, identified as 41-year-old Melissa Madrid Deanda, reportedly told dispatch that she had moved to the Stripes located at the intersection of Moss Avenue and 42nd Street.Deputies arrived at the listed Stripes location and made contact with Deanda who stated that a man she identified as “Marc” had arrived at the RV Park and displayed a small firearm while demanding money he claimed he was owed, the affidavit stated.Deanda reportedly told deputies that “Marc” had bought her a pair of “Jordan” brand slides for $80 and was now demanding she pay him $100 for the slides. Deanda stated that “Marc” arrived at her residence and pulled a firearm from his back waistband.
