BP claimed in the report that “a sequence of failures involving a number of different parties” led to the explosion that killed 11 workers and caused 4.9m gallons of oil to leak into the Gulf and has cost $8bn (£5.2bn) to clean up so far.The oil giant conceded that managers at the Deepwater Horizon rig failed to spot unusual pressure levels and leaks in the oil pipe 40 minutes before the blowout. The ventilation system on the BP-designed rig probably helped the fuel reach the engine room and ignite, said Mark Bly, BP head of safety and author of the report. However, he added that Transocean workers also missed the warning signs, and that Halliburton’s cement work failed to properly contain the oil. Outgoing chief executive Tony Hayward said “it would appear unlikely that the well design contributed to the incident”, but other companies involved in the Macondo well dispute this finding. Transocean slammed the 193-page dossier, calling it a “self-serving report that attempts to conceal the critical factor that set the stage for the Macondo incident: BP’s fatally flawed well design. “In both its design and construction, BP made a series of cost-saving decisions that increased risk – in some cases, severely.”Halliburton also hit back, claiming it has “noticed a number of substantial omissions and inaccuracies” in the report, and that it had carried out work to BP specifications. All three firms could face colossal legal bills from those affected by the spill if found to be responsible. Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ BP gulf spill triggers new row last_img read more

Old Mutual, which runs banking, insurance and asset management businesses in more than 30 countries, is one-third of the way through a three year shake-up aimed at streamlining the company and refocusing it on life insurance.The revamp, which came in response to investor concerns that the company’s complex structure was weighing on its share price, faltered in October when a deal to sell its majority stake in South Africa’s Nedbank to HSBC fell through.The company said it remained committed to its restructuring plan, and would “work with Nedbank to build shareholder value” in 2011.Old Mutual has also agreed to sell its US life insurance to hedge fund Harbinger Capital Partners, and is planning to list its U.S. fund management operation by the end of next year.Old Mutual listed in London in 1999 and launched an international acquisition spree, culminating in the 2006 takeover of Sweden’s Skandia, in an effort to reduce its dependence on South Africa, its historical home.

Old Mutual Wealth Cup: England 27-13 Wales

first_img TAGS: Highlight The lowdown on the England-Wales clash at Twickenham – how did the sides shape up before their summer tours? England outscored Wales five tries to one to lift the inaugural Old Mutual Wealth Cup. Wales started the better, leading 10-0 after 12 minutes thanks to the boot of Dan Biggar and Rob Evans’s early try. However, Luther Burrell and Anthony Watson crossed to narrow the gap to 13-10 at half-time – and Wales couldn’t notch a single point in the second 40 minutes. Ben Youngs, Jack Clifford and Marland Yarde added further tries and had George Ford been more accurate with his goalkicking the scoreline would have made even uglier reading for Warren Gatland and his team.WHAT’S HOTFast and loose – To be fair, this could fall in either the ‘hot’ or ‘not’ column depending on your point of view! Neither England nor Wales had played for a couple of months and this match provided a decent warm-up ahead of the tours to Australia and New Zealand respectively. With the sun shining, they both kept the ball in hand, trying out various backs moves, but there were plenty of errors too – dropped balls, knock-ons, poor passes and the like.Open space: Wales’ Liam Williams tries to get past Jack Clifford. Photo: Getty ImagesIt was entertaining but both teams will need to tighten up their games before taking on their southern hemisphere opponents. England will be pleased with their clinical edge, if not the goalkicking, as it’s rare for any side to score five tries against Wales. They showed more creativity and invention than during the Six Nations, and will want to continue that development in Australia.Wales failed to capitalise on a couple of breaks and if they fail to take chances like that against the All Blacks, they have no chance of winning in New Zealand for those opportunities will be few and far between. At least their scramble defence prevented a couple of other possible England tries.Space invaders – Wales clearly came with a plan to close down England’s playmakers and George Ford found that out early on. On numerous occasions the likes of Jamie Roberts and Scott Williams put in big hits on the fly-half, closing down his ability to create attacks and distribute the ball accurately. It often led to knock-ons and loose passes.Trophy time: England celebrate with the Old Mutual Wealth Cup. Photo: Getty ImagesJonathan Joseph, too, had his space restricted and Wales scrambled well in defence too. At the end of the first half, England looked to have acres of space out wide after a turnover at a maul, but Liam Williams did well to tackle Anthony Watson before he left the 22, thus shutting down another England attack before it got started. In the second half, though, Wales found themselves stretched more severely in defence and when they managed to get hold of the ball, they couldn’t keep hold of it for very long. As Warren Gatland said post-match, they need to keep the tempo high for 80 minutes, rather than starting well and then dipping off.Family-packed crowd – Twickenham has become know as a bit of home for corporate types in recent years, but this game saw far more families in attendance – 10% of the crowd were children. There were plenty of fans who don’t normally have access to tickets for RBS 6 Nations games or autumn Internationals – and they clearly enjoyed the May sunshine, looking resplendent in white and red.WHAT’S NOTBiggar’s outburst – Jack Clifford’s try caused controversy in the 47th minute. The No 8, impressive throughout, broke clear from halfway to score near the posts and the TMO was called in to look at whether there was a knock-on from Dan Cole in the build-up. While the TMO ruled no, Wales – and particularly Dan Biggar – clearly felt it was the wrong decision, feeling Cole had deliberately tried to intercept the ball and had knocked it on. Of course players are not going to agree with every decision made by the officials, but the way Wales’ fly-half then remonstrated with the referee and refused to give George Ford the ball for the conversion is not the type of thing you want to see on the field. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Happy day: Marland Yarde celebrates his try – England’s fifth – against Wales. Photo: Getty Images Poor show: Wales fly-half Dan Biggar argues with referee Marius Mitrea. Photo: Getty ImagesFord’s kicking – In the first half alone, George Ford missed two conversions and a penalty for a total of 0% success rate from the tee. He’s looked short of confidence all season and this clearly came through as he took shots at goal. He started the second half with one kick from hand charged down and another missed conversion. In all, he slotted only one kick from seven – a shocking return. And the biggest cheer of the afternoon came when he slotted his first kick, converting Jack Clifford’s try from in front of the posts.The pressure was on Ford, with a lot of talk of whether Owen Farrell should wear the No 10 jersey in Australia. On this evidence, the Saracen has to start – he was faultless from the tee in the Aviva Premiership final and has been in sublime form in 2016, improving his distribution and running game no end. Although, Eddie Jones described Ford’s performance as “brilliant”, so selection might not be quite that straightforward!TMO check – It has to be said that Anthony Watson showed great awareness to twist and turn and stretch his hands above his head to touch the ball down when being tackle by George North. The decision of whether to award a try was put to the TMO and while one angle looked to show Watson touching the ball down on the line, others – not looked at by the officials – raised questions as to whether he was short. Surely all angles should be looked at to determine whether a try has been scored?Twist and shout: Anthony Watson twists to score as he’s tackled by George North.

Tevita Kuridrani receives five week suspension for dangerous tackle

first_imgThursday Nov 21, 2013 Tevita Kuridrani receives five week suspension for dangerous tackle While the Wallabies are winning matches again, discipline is costing them as they not only internally banned some of their players, but now centre Tevita Kuridrani has been suspended for five matches for the tip-tackle he made against Ireland at the weekend. The Wallabies were convincing winners in Dublin but in the last ten minutes Kuridrani was red carded for what could be described as a silly, innocuous lifting tackle. These days the law states that it’s a red card, which didn’t affect the match, but he will also sit out the rest of the tour.Kuridrani was charged under Law 10.4(j) which states ‘Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst the player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.’The tackle was deemed to be a mid-range offence (8 weeks). An extra week was added as a deterrent, but it was then reduced by four due to the player’s previous good record, and no doubt the fact that he wasn’t the only player involved in the tackle.Barring a successful appeal, he will miss their upcoming matches against Scotland and Wales.“We put a lot of effort into that, because we thought we had a pretty good case,” said coach Ewen McKenzie after the disciplinary hearing, stating that they will probably appeal if they have can.“We went through it frame by frame for some time. It didn’t look great in real time, but when you go through all the elements, there were other people involved in the tackle, we presented a good case I thought but didn’t get the outcome we wanted.“He’s available for Super Rugby, that’s the upside, but at the same token he’s got that sitting on his record, so if there was a next time your starting point is way down the track. I’m fully aware of other situations of guys who’ve had multiple situations and got lesser outcomes.“I feel for him at the moment. You look at like for like, that was part of our case, some of the other judgements that have been passed down,” he added. Wallaby team to face Scotland:15 Israel Folau, 14 Joe Tomane, 13 Christian Leali’ifano, 12 Mike Harris, 11 Chris Feauai-Sautia, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Ben Mowen (c), 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Scott Fardy, 5 James Horwill, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 James Slipper.Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga’a, 17 Ben Alexander, 18 Paddy Ryan, 19 Sitaleki Timani, 20 Ben McCalman, 21 Nic White, 22 Nick Phipps, 23 Bernard Foley.Do you think a five week ban is a fair ruling, or was the Red Card sufficient?

What the Drift House aims to do is hybridize the intelligence of tradition and technology of both housing systems to offer direction on future constructions in the Arctic. Designed by Neeraj Bhatia of The Open Workshop, this housing prototype for northern climates proposes a series of snow fences that passively utilize snowdrift to form a new dwelling type by calibrating the snow fences with differential mesh openings and height. More images and architect’s description after the break.Save this picture!Courtesy of The Open Workshop / Neeraj BhatiaWith insufficient core populations to support public structures, the typology of dwelling has attained the highest level of refinement within the Arctic’s unique climate. Pre-WWII indigenous Inuit Housing Types had embedded connections to the local landscape, its orientation, materials and fabrication, while embracing the nomadic Inuit lifestyle. With zero ecological footprint, these temporal dwellings employed opportunities from the landscape and atmosphere to form a complex shelter that negotiated thermal performance, local materials, soft construction techniques, program and cultural values. Save this picture!Courtesy of The Open Workshop / Neeraj BhatiaPermanent architecture –in the form of prefabricated Government housing– was employed in an effort to assert Arctic Sovereignty during the Cold War era by the Canadian Government. Despite instilling new notions of comfort and durability, this new housing neglected the cultural and sustainable intelligence of traditional dwellings. Importing a ‘southern’ model of dwelling, these hermetic containers were highly contingent on imported materials, energy consumption, labor, and transport costs, while forcing a transformation to the Inuit lifestyle that severed a connection to the dynamic landscape. These typologies have formed the template for Arctic shelter and settlements in Canada that still persists today.  Save this picture!Courtesy of The Open Workshop / Neeraj BhatiaWhile the snow fence is a static infrastructure to protect roadways, it is manipulated to produce a precise pattern of passive snow accumulation from the dynamics of snowdrift. By understanding a malleable system, such as snowdrift, architecture can be formed in response to the landscape — calibrating, mitigating and using once ‘problematic’ environments in an opportunistic manner. Save this picture!summer planThe house is comprised of four nested surfaces formed of ETFE panels that create a series of climatic zones that are parasitic to the calibrated snowdrifts. The accumulated snow passively ‘builds’ part of the dwelling, while also serving as a counterweight to the light cantilevered structure. The nested thermal environments produce a series of thermal zones related to the interior program and traditional lifestyles.  Save this picture!winter planThis hybridized space — a series of planes positioned in relation to a dynamic system, meshes high-tech thermal materials with the landscape (snow) to create soft thermal gradients. By using snow as a material, structural counterweight, and enclosure, the Drift House is able to passively accumulate a responsive shelter through the manipulation of a generic technology (the snow fence) to form new a typology of dwelling and construction.  Architects: Neeraj Bhatia/The Open WorkshopLocation: Northern CanadaProject Research and Design Team: Neeraj Bhatia (Director), Tracy Bremer, Mary Casper, ZachariahGlennon, Alicia Hergenroeder, Brian Lee & Sonia Ramundi Funded by: Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, MIT Lawrence B.

Repeated exposure is designed to build empathy in viewers “and results in conversion rates of 80-90% vs 30% from short-form DRTV”.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Move for Good is based on the premise that, when donors move, they often fail to notify charities they support, resulting in lost contact for the charity and ultimately, lost donations. Home moving also sees a large amount of money being spent in a short period of time, which at the moment, charities do not tap into. Move for Good finds donors an estate agency that will sell their home and passes the donor’s details to the agency.The panel of Organisational members of the Instititute gave each product a rating on the scale of 1-5, (1*-low, 5*****-high).Long-form Direct Response TV (DRTV):Practical application ** Innovation ****Fundraising Potential ***Move for Good:Practical application ****Innovation ***Fundraising Potential ***Lindsay Boswell, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, explained why the Innovation Zone had been established: “Charities are often contacted by suppliers and agencies trying to sell them a new fundraising idea, which they don’t have time to investigate. That is where the Innovation Zone comes in. As well as encouraging new ideas, Innovation Zone acts as a filter.”The findings of the Innovation Zone Panel have been published in a full report, available exclusively to Organisational members of the Institute of Fundraising. A summary report is also available for other interested parties via the Institute’s website.The panel will re-convene in on 28 February 2007 to assess new products and services. The closing date for applications is 19 February.last_img read more
