Iraq UN team inspects missile development site

The Waziriyah location of the Al Karama General Company, in the northern outskirts of Baghdad, “has had overall responsibility for development of the Al Samoud liquid propellant missile,” said Hiro Ueki, a spokesman for the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspections Commission (UNMOVIC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).In 1998, the site contained a number of pieces of equipment tagged by UNMOVIC’s predecessor, the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM), and several monitoring cameras. “None of these are currently present at the facility,” Mr. Ueki said. “It was claimed that some had been destroyed by the bombing of the site; some had been transferred to other sites.”UNMOVIC was able to carry out the inspection tasks that had been planned at Waziriyah, which in addition to serving as the headquarters of the Al Karama Company is currently an engineering design, research and development facility. Meanwhile, experts from the IAEA went to three small industrial sites, including two that had never been accessed by any inspection teams before. “Access was granted immediately and inspections were completed as planned, with the cooperation of the Iraqi counterpart,” Mr. Ueki said. “The three sites proved to be dedicated to the production of alcohol.” read more

A New Executive Committee For Emery County Republicans

By Julie JohansenThe Emery County Republican Party Organizing Convention for 2019 opened with nominations for executive officers as well as chairman, vice-chairman, treasurer and county representative (delegate at large). Treasurer Denise Chapman was nominated and voted in by acclamation. The other positions were voted by the convention delegates. Tom Hansen will serve as the new chairman, Joel Hatch-Jensen as vice chairman, Julie Oakeson as secretary and Katherine DeBry as county representative.During the nominations, a motion was made to suspend the rules and change the eligibility requirements of living in the county for one year to allow delegates with less residency duration to be eligible. This motion needed a two-thirds vote to pass and lacked that numbers of votes, so the rules remained the same.While the voting was counted, convention guest speakers addressed the audience. Speaking was Senator David Hinkins and Representative Christine Watkins as well as Emery County Commissioners Lynn Sitterud, Kent Wilson and Gil Conover. Kendra Seeley, who is seeking the position of State Republican Party Secretary, and Phill Wright, delegate for state party chairman, introduced themselves and asked for the support of state delegates at the state convention on May 4 at Utah Valley University. read more

Les restaurants américains sousestiment le nombre de calories de leurs plats

first_imgLes restaurants américains sous-estiment le nombre de calories de leurs platsUne étude menée par des scientifiques américains révèle que les restaurants ont tendance à sous-estimer le nombre de calories présents dans leurs aliments. Une inexactitude répétée qui peut occasionner d’importantes prises de poids.Près d’un plat sur cinq servi dans les restaurants américains compte au moins 100 calories de plus que ce qui est affiché. C’est ce que vient tout juste de révéler une récente étude américaine qui pointe du doigt la tendance des restaurants à minimiser le nombre de calories réellement présentes dans les assiettes. Au total, l’étude a été menée pendant cinq mois entre janvier et mai 2010, dans trois Etats américains, l’Arkansas, l’Indiana et le Massachusetts. À lire aussiPourquoi le café donne-t-il envie de faire caca ?Au final, le constat s’est révélé plutôt alarmant. Si bien souvent le nombre de calories mesuré était identique à la quantité annoncée, dans 19% des cas tout de même, les mesures ont indiqué un écart de 100 calories en moyenne.Une approximation qui peut se traduire par une prise de poids de 15 kilos par an sur la balance, explique romandie.com. Dans les cas les plus extrêmes, les chercheurs ont même pu relever une différence de 1.000 calories dans une portion de chips et de sauce mexicaine ! “Cette quantité représente la moitié de l’apport énergétique quotidien conseillé pour la plupart des gens”, souligne ainsi l’étude conduite par l’Université Tufts et publiée dans le Journal of the American Medical Association.Salade et glucides, moins bien évalués Plus précisément, les plats pour lesquels le nombre de calories est le plus sous-estimé sont les salades et les assiettes généreuses en glucides (pain, riz, pommes de terre) alors que les sandwiches et plats de viande sont généralement correctement évalués. Par ailleurs, les scientifiques ont noté que les restaurants “traditionnels” s’écartaient davantage du nombre de calories que les fast-foods. Aux Etats-Unis l’obésité touche un tiers de la population. Un fléau contre lequel est censée lutter cette mesure d’afficher les calories dans les aliments. Il reste donc quelques ajustements à effectuer afin d’espérer que celle-ci soit réellement efficace. Le 20 juillet 2011 à 13:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

402 million ADFG forecasts a return to normal for Bristol Bay sockeye

first_imgCredit Sarah Grace DurranceWhen Bristol Bay rivers run red this summer, it will be with 40.2 million sockeye salmon, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s forecast.“If there was a theme song or a bullet point for this year, it would be kind of a return to normal,” said Greg Buck, the Bristol Bay area research biologist. “You know, we’ve been on something of a sugar high the last couple of years.”If the forecast is correct, the total run would be 10 percent below the most recent 10-year average of 44.4 million reds, but it would still come in well above the long-term average of 34 million fish.The rivers that are likely to see the most striking drop this year from the past two years are the Nushagak and the Wood. The Nushagak District as a whole is forecasted to see 10.3 million reds return with 4.2 million to the Nushagak River and 4.6 million to the Wood River. Compare that to last year’s total run of 33.5 million sockeye to the district.Credit Alaska Department of Fish and GameADF&G is predicting that the Naknek-Kvichak run at 16.1 million reds will be similar to last year’s. It is forecasting larger runs to Egegik and Ugashik at 9.1 million and 3.5 million respectively.Togiak is also forecasted to have a strong summer with 1.2 million sockeye returning.“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a forecast for Togiak that was above a million, so I’m pretty excited about that as well,” said Sands.Forecasting salmon returns in Bristol Bay is notoriously difficult. Biologists said that some unexpected variability in the age classes of fish that returned in 2018 made it especially tough to pin down the Nushagak District forecast for 2019.According to the forecast, “Evidence regarding the strength of the 2015 brood year in the Nushgak District is mixed with a very high level of jacks (age-1.1 fish) in the Nushagak River and a very low level of jacks in the Wood River 2018 return.”Sands also said that in 2018 the Wood River saw an unusual number of 2.1’s, fish that spent two years in freshwater and one years in saltwater. That, in combination with last year’s incredibly large return of 1.2’s to the river, suggest to Sands that it is possible 2.2’s could make a showing in the Wood River this year.“And we don’t normally see 2.2’s, but there’s a possibility of that being a much bigger number than we’ve seen historically,” said Sands, illustrating the difficulty of using data from recent returns to model the 2019 forecast.According to Sands, the forecast is conservative in its estimated return to the Nushagak District.Buck is more confident in the forecasts for Bristol Bay’s east side districts.“You don’t see any brood tables over there that really make you scratch your head. If you look at all the models, there seems to be an answer that makes sense,” said Buck.He notes that, on average, forecasts since 2001 have been under forecast by an 11 percent.Contact the author at avery@kdlg.org or 907-842-2200.last_img read more

first_img News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more Image courtesy of Bayer HealthcareJanuary 6, 2015 — Bayer HealthCare announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Gadavist (gadobutrol) injection for use with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in pediatric patients less than 2 years of age, including term neonates, to detect and visualize areas with disrupted blood brain barrier and/or abnormal vascularity of the central nervous system. Gadavist was previously approved for this use in patient populations over the age of 2. The FDA’s priority review was based on a study showing that the pharmacokinetic (PK) and safety profiles in pediatric patients less than 2 years of age were similar to that of older children and adults at standard dose (0.1 mmol/kg). “Until this study, there were limited data regarding the use of gadolinium-based contrast agents in pediatric patients younger than 2 years of age, and there has been a significant need to better understand how they work in our youngest patients,” said Ravi Bhargava, M.D., study investigator and pediatric radiologist, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. “Ultimately, it’s important for us to have safe and effective tools to help us accurately detect abnormalities and visualize areas of the central nervous system in children of all ages.”The study enrolled 47 pediatric patients with ages spanning from term neonates to 23 months with normal renal function from nine centers across the United States, Canada and Europe. Forty-four pediatric patients were evaluated for safety and efficacy and 43 were eligible for a PK profile evaluation, including nine term neonates less than 2 months of age.  Safety was a secondary endpoint and the study also included a qualitative assessment of efficacy.The data showed that the Gadavist PK profile in pediatric patients under 2 was similar to the PK profile in older pediatric patients and adults. Investigators also observed a similar safety profile for Gadavist in this pediatric population.The study found that the Gadavist adverse event (AE) profile was consistent with what has been seen in older populations. In one patient, vomiting was reported as a mild adverse drug reaction (ADR) to Gadavist. The most common non-serious AEs unrelated to Gadavist were cough, nasopharyngitis, rhinitis, pyrexia and vomiting. Serious AEs were unrelated to Gadavist and were reported in three out of 44 patients.Gadavist is the U.S. brand name of the aqueous 1.0M solution of gadobutrol, a gadolinium (Gd)-based extracellular contrast agent for MRI with a macrocyclic structure.Gadavist (gadobutrol) injection was first approved in the U.S. in March 2011 for intravenous use in diagnostic MRI in adults and children (2 years of age and older) to detect and visualize areas with disrupted blood brain barrier and/or abnormal vascularity of the central nervous system. Gadavist was further approved in June 2014 in the U.S. for MRI of the breast to assess the presence and extent of malignant breast disease.For more information: www.healthcare.bayer.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

Go back to the enewsletter Until a year ago Amrit

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterUntil a year ago Amritsar, spiritual home of the global Sikh community, had no luxury hotels. There were places that had beds and, particularly in the warmer months, you could sleep outside under the covered cloisters of one of the courtyards of the giant area that is Sri Harmandir Sahib (also known as the Darbar Sahib or Golden Temple). This absolutely gorgeous temple encompasses a man-made sarovar pool finished by Guru Ram Das in 1577. The whole thing is so religiously charged that anyone going there feels as if the battery has been completely recharged. Arriving at the complex you have to take off shoes and socks and, later, before entering the inner Golden Temple (no photos allowed), you must have your hair covered.In fact as soon as you get into town you are aware of being in another world, akin to a trance. The streets are so clean that you feel you could eat directly off the ground. There are no official police; they are not needed. The essence of the Sikh religion is to look after others, regardless of race or religion, and holy men wander around with big staves that fortunately seem to be purely for decorative purposes. Others carry big curved knives, showing they have attained Sikh sanctity. This means neither sex can remove any bodily hair, they must carry wood combs, eschew alcohol and meat, wear an iron bracelet and long underwear, and men carry swords. At least 65,000 people visit the Golden Temple every day, including Sikhs from as far afield as Toronto and Sydney, and non-Sikhs, who must cover their heads. Remarkably, every one can sleep here and eat, any time, 24/7.I have been around large and copious catering kitchens before, but nothing to rival this production. All run entirely by volunteers, there are areas for preparing carrots, others for peeling garlic. Vats the size of bathtubs cook rice, vegetables. People are wheeling around giant racks stacked high with metal plates with four compartments, like a TV dinner – you help yourself to a plate and a spoon, and sit cross-legged anywhere in long lines. Servers walk along with buckets, ladling something out: you get – in lightning time – dal, vegetables, a runny porridge and a dessert (perhaps cut fruit), a tin mug of water, a bowl of rice and as many chapatis as you want. And imagine the subsequent dishwashing: volunteers, standing at 30-foot troughs, deal with 65,000 sets of utensils, plus cook pots, every day.One year ago, however, Amritsar did acquire a luxury hotel: the very agreeable Taj Swarna, run by GM Sumeet Taneja. He has got his food as well organised as the Golden Temples, and a lot more varied: you can choose Chinese, which is really popular with Indians, or a sanitised version of Indian street food, the choice of tourists flocking from UK, France and Germany, drawn by the mystique of the Golden Temple. You can also choose one of the Taj international comfort foods, say fish and chips, as on menus at Taj London. One tip when staying here: plan at least two full days to do it justice to other sites as well as the Golden Temple, and ask the really lovely guest services staff, who are not surprisingly praised so often on TripAdvisor, to book freelancer Sahil Singh as your guide.Next I flew south to Goa. The area’s landmark Fort Aguada was built by the Portuguese in 1612 to guard against the Dutch and other marauders, and today it still dominates the beautiful beach south of Candolim, near the Mandovi River in North Goa. Look down at it, today, from the amazing 17 hectares of steeply sloping gardens that form a unique feature of one of Goa’s most serene luxury hotels, Taj Fort Aguada Resort & Spa. Its two main blocks of bedrooms were built, down by the pool, in 1974. Three floors, without lifts, and still none. The local antiquities people have ‘do not change anything’ at the top of their agenda, though it is said they will now allow one external lift.That was not always so. In 1983 the Commonwealth Heads of Government were coming to meet in Goa, and this Taj-owned hotel then added 17 beautiful little bungalows nestled into the gorgeous gardens. I stayed in number 512, a two-room villa (not really an Indian term – unlike the word bungalow, ‘belonging to Bengal’, which originated here in the 17th century). Villa 512 is where Mrs Thatcher overnighted, and it must have made her feel very much at home. I have stayed in exquisite intimate hotel-houses before and, honestly, this is one of the most agreeable and serene that I remember. David Edwards recently restored all the villa interiors and I especially like his blue colour palette.Wood-look ceramic-plank floors are inset with Portuguese-style blue-and-white tiles. Most walls are gentian blue, with white outlining, and all artworks, throw cushions, bed throws and even the fabric blinds at the total-21 windows around the suite fit into the colour scheme. The result is a genuine stage set, if that is not a contradiction in terms. An entire stay here is really enjoyable, and villa guests will be even more delighted when a dedicated (villas-only) lounge with full dining, and a pool, opens in a couple of months’ time. I did venture down the hill, a good 10 minutes’ hike back to the main gateway and through to the gym, spa and tennis: I also headed down for a walk to the Fort’s ramparts, and for breakfast on the all-day restaurant’s outer terrace, sensibly completely netted over to keep greedy crows out.Dinner had been poolside, at Morisco grill where you choose your just-in catch, in my case giant king prawns, cooked to order. The soft sound of gently breaking waves made this a memorable evening, especially as I was with the GM, Ravi Nischal, a charming would-be doctor, who, like so many of the best hoteliers, fell into hospitality ‘by accident’. Stay here, by the way, and you have the advantage of signing privileges at Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa, five minutes by shuttle (this, explained that property’s GM Ranju Singh, is indeed village-like, with lots of space between colourful units that reminded me a bit of Le Guanahani on St Barths). My advice, honestly, is stay at either of these properties, and simply do not go off-campus. Goa, in general, has two major challenges, for which read opportunities. One is to do something about the airport and its passenger experience. The other is to get rid, somehow, of the cartel that runs the white ‘taxis’ – no meters, take your chance on quality of vehicle and even more on the driver’s skills.Mary Gostelow travels over 300 days a year, doing one-night stands in top hotels around the world.

Horsted Keynes station, Bluebell Railway, West Sussex, England, UKThis former junction station was given a new lease of life when Downton Abbey’s producers rolled in to town and chose Horsted as the face of Downton Abbey railway station. First opened in 1882, British Railways ceased sending carriages through Horsted in 1963 and today it’s part of the Bluebell Railway heritage line. On screen, it’s where Mary waved Matthew off to war in season two and also where the young Mrs Crawley goes into early labour after returning from Duneagle Castle (see point 12). The Metrobus 270 calls at this grade II listed station every Saturday from Haywards Heath and East Grinstead – if you show your bus ticket at Horsted’s booking office you’ll receive a discount on all Bluebell Railway travel. In nearby Horsted Keynes village you’ll find St. Giles Church, where former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan is buried. Apart from this and a few (two) pubs there’s not much to see here, but the station is still a fun place to pull in. ©Reading Tom / Flickr.com7.

Sets were built on stages 3A and 3B, however, once the cameras stop rolling they are dismantled and removed from the building, so unfortunately, this is another location you soon won’t be able to see first-hand. Oh well, wheel out that box set and settle in for a marathon instead, or take a quick look back with the clip below. 3.

This aristocratic aunt is the Grantham girls’ main confidante, turning to her when they have secret affairs or illegitimate babies to confess about, and the drawing room of this grand Palladian house is where many of these high drama storylines have unfolded. The home of the Dashwood family for more than 300 years, this 45 acre mansion has also featured in other British period dramas, including Cranford and Little Dorrit. The house is currently closed for the season (check the National Trust’s website for information) but the nearby village is of course open all year-round – climb West Wycombe Hill for breath-taking views of the Chilterns. To visit, head towards High Wycombe on the A40 and parking is available 250 yards from the park. 9. Byfleet Manor, Mill Lane, Byfleet, Surrey, England, UKAbandon hope all ye who enter: Byfleet is the private residence of the Dowager Violet, Lord Grantham’s formidable mother and master of quick-witted comebacks. This ancient eight bedroom mansion has four reception rooms, sits on 18 acres of land and was once where King Henry III and King Edward II would retreat to for relaxation and hunting. Since filming started the ‘Downton Room’ has been added to Byfleet, where you can delicately nibble crust-less finger sandwiches and sip tea from vintage bone china cups (for more places to scoff a fantastic scone, check out these world class afternoon teas). They even have accommodation in their West Wing if you fancy a break from the city (25 minutes to Waterloo); the ground floor comes complete with a dining room with wood burner and an open kitchen with an Aga. Make a day of it and explore Wisley Gardens just down the road, or Hampton Court and Kew Gardens which are about five miles away. We’ve got more English gardens for you to get lost in here. Learn to take people down a peg or two from the queen of quips (and get a sneak peek inside Byfleet) in this video. 13. Lincoln Castle, Castle Hill, LincolnLincoln Castle is the oldest filming location featured in Downton Abbey – it was built in the eleventh century by William the Conqueror on the site of a pre-existing Roman fortress and was still in use as a prison until 1878. This is where the unfortunate Mr Bates winds up after being accused of murdering his ex-wife in season three. Apart from on screen appearances, the castle is famous for housing the original Magna Carta since 1215, and has become a major tourist attraction after its £22m restoration which began in 2012. There’s plenty to see and do; spend a stint in jail, see the iconic charter close-up, watch your favourite film under the stars at an open air screening, or celebrate the British banger at the Lincolnshire Sausage Festival this October. Open all year round, see everything (prison, Magna Carta, events) with an all-inclusive ticket (£12 adults, £7.20 children) and you can return for free within six months. If arriving by car you’re better off parking at Whisby Garden Centre and taking the Lincoln Castle Shuttle bus (£6 per car), rather than run the risk of pricey street parking in the middle of the city. ©Glen Bowman / Flickr.com11. The Criterion, 224 Piccadilly, LondonThe Criterion, opened in 1874, is where Edith Crawley meets Michael Gregson for dinner in season four: they share their first kiss here, and he reveals plans to become a German citizen, divorcing his wife in order to marry Edith. And that’s all before the main course! Aside from romantic trysts, the Criterion, one of the world’s oldest dining rooms, hosted many political figures, from Winston Churchill to suffragettes and members of the Women’s Social and Political Union. Unfortunately, the Criterion went into administration this summer and the future of this luxury restaurant, famed for its gold ceilings, is still uncertain. ©Ed Webster / Flickr.com5. Alnwick Castle, Alnwick, Northumberland, England, UKThe seat of the Duke of Northumberland, Alnwick Castle is home to the current duke and his family, (although they live in just a small wing) making it the second largest inhabited castle in England, after Windsor Castle. This grand grade I listed building starred in Downton Abbey in 2014’s Christmas special as the building-double for Brancaster Castle, hired by Rose’s father-in-law, Lord Sinderby, for a round of grouse shooting. Much of the episode was shot in the stately gardens, opulent halls and Hulne Abbey, and visitors can now enjoy a Downton display of costumes, photographs and props used during filming. You may also recognise Alnwick from Harry Potter as the world’s most famous school, Hogwarts. Open from the end of March until November 1st, if you book online the day before you go then you’ll receive a 5% discount – adults £14, children £7.20. 10. Basildon Park, Reading, BerkshireRewind to Christmas 2013, the year Rose was presented at court, Cora’s mother and playboy brother (played by Paul Giamatti) visited from the United States to experience the Great British Summer and Edith had second thoughts about leaving her illegitimate child in Switzerland. All this drama was unfolding under the roof of Basildon Park, an exquisite eighteenth century Georgian mansion in the Berkshire countryside used for filming interior scenes of Grantham House. See the impressive stately home for yourself, wander through the 400 acres of surrounding parkland or time travel back to the 1950s in their retro post-war kitchen. Seven miles north-west of Reading just off the A329, the nearest train station is Pangbourne (two and a half miles away) and from here take a short five minute taxi ride to Basildon Park. Both the house and the grounds are open until 5pm and to get a nosey of the whole property expect to pay £12.50 for adults £6 for children – arrive at 11am for a guided tour of the house. 6. Hall Place, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, EnglandIf you could step over the threshold of Hall Place you’d find yourself amidst the eighteenth century chintz of Mrs Crawley’s private residence. This is where Matthew and his mother Isobel first lived when they moved to Downton after the former was made heir to the Earl of Grantham’s estate. Unfortunately, this grade II listed manor is not open to the public, but the market town of Beaconsfield (walking distance from the house) is a great place to soak up some Georgian grandeur and the high street is strung with ornate shopfronts and opulent tea rooms. center_img 15. St. Pancras International, Euston Road, LondonIt may not appear on screen for very long, but St. Pancras features in the first episode of season four, as Edith jets down to London to meet Gregson (see point 11). First opened in 1868, St. Pancras is surrounded by other famous landmarks lining Euston Road, including the British Library and King’s Cross Station. Since the completion of the high speed rail link in 2007, St. Pancras International has become not only a major travel hub but also a place for fine lunches and a spot of shopping. For train snacks befitting a Lord or Lady, head to Fortnum and Mason inside the station and swap sweaty cheese sandwiches for smoked salmon on rye bread (£12) or Fortnum’s famous fish pie (£14). 12. Inveraray Castle, Argyll and Bute, ScotlandOne of the few sets not to feature the English countryside, producers headed to the wilds of western Scotland to shoot that Christmas special – Matthew and Mary, their new baby, the car, the endless reams of tissues, lots of crying over the Christmas pud. In 2012 Inveraray Castle, on the banks of Loch Fyne, was transformed into Duneagle Castle as the Crawley’s headed north to visit Rose and her dysfunctional parents, Susana and ‘Shrimpy’. Home to the Duke of Argyll and chief of Clan Campbell, stroll through opulent rooms in this gorgeously grand neo-Gothic castle, explore some of the 16 acre garden, or, in case you’ve haven’t had enough tea and cake, visit their tea rooms for rich refreshment. Tickets cost £10 (£7 for children) but book online beforehand and you’ll save £1. Inveraray is only open from April 1st until the end of October, so go soon or you’ll have to wait until 2016! It’s the Upstairs Downstairs of our generation: for many, Sunday nights just aren’t complete without watching Lady Violet (played by the formidable Maggie Smith) deliver some sharp-tongued home truths, or catching up on the saucy below stairs dramas. For others, news that this season is the last will bring only sweet relief – you’ll soon be freed from any obligation to endure this weekly ritual with your significant others. Either way, you must agree that the filming locations featured in the hit British TV show are exceptionally beautiful!Watch clips and find out more about where Downton was filmed so that you can go and visit some of the locations for yourself.1. Highclere Castle, Highclere, Hampshire, EnglandFirst stop has got to be the Abbey itself – well, it’s less abbey more Victorian castle, but hey, let’s not kick things off by picking holes in the factual accuracy of the show (we may not stop). This beautiful castle sits pretty in the south-east of England in Berkshire, and whilst on screen Downton Abbey is home to the main cast (including Lord and Lady Grantham, Lady Mary and Edith, plus Carson, Bates the rest of the hired help) in real life Highclere Castle is the seat of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon. The family, who’ve lived on the site for generations since 1679, are close friends of Julian Fellowes, author of the series, who had Highclere in mind when creating the show’s primary setting. The castle is open to the public for about 70 days of the year, including two months during the summer and a few days at Christmas, so check their website for dates and times before setting off. Besides feeling like a Downton extra while you sip your tea in the café or ramble through the gardens, there’s also the Egyptian Exhibition here, full of artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb – the fifth Earl of Carnarvon was none other than Howard Carter, the man famed for finding the pharaoh’s final resting place. To get to Highclere head towards Newbury via the M4 or by train from Paddington. ©Kate (deedofthedanes) / Flickr.com14. The Albert Memorial, Kensington Gardens, LondonAnother Christmas Special (2013) and we’re back down south in Kensington Gardens with Cora’s brother Harold, Madeleine and William Allsopp, Martha Levinson and Violet, picnicking in the park in front of the Albert Memorial. This Gothic monument, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert who died of typhoid in 1861. It’s 176 feet (54 m) tall and took more than ten years to build. See it for free in one of London’s prettiest parks, once the private gardens of Kensington Palace – the former home of the Prince of Wales and Princess Diana, which you can also admire from behind the palace gates during your stroll through the greenery. There are a number of London Underground stations and bus stops nearby and the park is open from 6am every day. Fancy following in the footsteps of other famous film and TV stars?

Bampton, Oxfordshire, EnglandIf you’re barmy about Downton then you’ve got to call in at the charming Cotswolds village of Bampton, a.k.a. Downton Village. Meant to be set in Yorkshire, this chocolate-box hamlet is actually about 20 miles west of Oxford. Wander through cobbled lanes, past the Crawley House, Downton Cottage Hospital, the Post Office and St. Mary’s Church – you’ll recognise it from season three when poor Edith is jilted at the altar by local landowner Anthony Strallan. Once you’re done reminiscing about episodes gone by, stop at Bampton Coffee House for a pot of tea, or The Horseshoe Inn for something a little stronger. It won’t take you long to tour the village, so venture out into the surrounding countryside for some lovely bracing walks, or press on to Woodstock which is just 17 miles down the road.

Handling of coop bank not too bad

Handling of coop bank not too bad

first_imgDecisions regarding the co-op bank in Cyprus might have been different, a senior European Commission official told MPs on Tuesday, but noted that the option eventually settled upon was “not too bad.”“Now with the benefit of hindsight we might have done things differently and decided differently, but I think all in all the solution does not look too bad,” said Manfred Bergmann, of the Directorate General for Economic and Financial Affairs.He was meeting MPs of the House finance and labour committees following the European Commission’s 2019 report for Cyprus, published in February.“The only thing that happened, is that what were non-performing loans in the banking sector are now non-performing loans in the public sector via the special entity we have created for this,” Bergmann said.He was alluding to the decision by Cypriot authorities to sell the performing operations of the co-op bank to Hellenic. The co-op bank has since lost its banking licence and has been renamed to Cooperative Asset Management Company, which will wind down non-performing loans amounting to €5.7bn.The decision had the blessing of the European Commission.Bergmann went on to warn that Cyprus has the “major disadvantage” of being a small and open economy, making it vulnerable to external shocks.The Cypriot economy, he added, is based on tourism, construction and the golden visas scheme and “these are issues which might be very fragile.”Bergmann pointed out that civil servants in Cyprus seem to enjoy both high salaries and job security, unlike in other EU member states where their positions may be secure but they receive lower wages by comparison.“In Cyprus they have both high wages and security, it sounds like having their cake and eating it.”On the need for privatisations, Bergmann said this is not doctrine as far as the European Commission is concerned.“But,” he added, “if you don’t want to go for privatisation in the fields where you have monopolies, such as telecommunications or energy, you need a plan B so that at the end of the day the result is good.”Noting that Cyprus needs to transition to a new economic model, the official advised political parties to set aside their differences to pass reforms.Since the ruling party lacks a majority in parliament, he added, “you don’t have the luxury of confrontation between the government and the opposition. More cooperation is required.”Bergmann was responding to Disy MP Onoufrios Koulla, who suggested that the European Commission tends to meddle in the tax or welfare policies of individual member states.For her part, Director for Employment and Social Governance in the Commission’s Directorate General for Employment Barbara Kauffmann said Cyprus has seen a significant increase in part-time employment and in informal labour, which was a concern.The European Commission has proposed that Cyprus undertake a series of reforms in the public sector, education and the judiciary.It additionally advocates for steps to ensure that a national health scheme be fully operational by 2020.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoVarosha move merely a ‘PR stunt’ by Ozersay, expert saysUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
