F&C completed its purchase of Thames River this month, having been attracted by the group’s higher margin retail and hedge funds and the chance to rebuild asset levels as outflows from its own portfolios continue. The fall in Thames River’s operating profit over the year — to £20.5m from £36.1m — may have been due to the outflows from its hedge funds, which tend to earn higher margins than mutual funds.

The project for this small detached house at Orsara di Puglia, is the outcome of a close collaboration between client and architect (lengthy discussion between brothers, to be precise). It is a very simple volume: a white cube measuring 10 meters on each side, excavated, squared, geometrical, apparently abstract, but actually similar to many buildings in the countryside of Foggia.Save this picture!© Beppe GiardinoA simple elementary volume, in contrast to the complex and highly articulated surrounding houses. The house, whit access provided by a long pedestrian ramp, on a tall base faced with local stone. A loggia rising to its full height precedes the entrance to the residence, whose ground floor opens, through large sliding windows, onto the garden around it.

The holiday home sits among maritime forest with thin vegetation cover towards the Baltic sea and direct access to the local beach. The client had a strong vision on what they wanted to achieve as a family holiday home in Gotland and was fully engaged in the design process. A process that started 15 years ago when they bought a small beach cabin on this exclusive site.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThey spent those years absorbing the site and took as much advantage of it as possible. Their first thought was to renovate the existing building but finally, they chose to demolish it to make way for this new build.

Adjoining this space are two bunk rooms and a master bedroom with sauna. The house comfortably sleeps, 10 people.

The film openly embraces its genre, providing moments of seriousness punctuated with the occasional laugh or gag. The plot is also surprisingly fast-paced, moving from one moment to the next in an increasingly destructive romp.The biggest downside to the plot, however, are some questionable choices made in the third act as well as some unanswered questions that may be left open for a sequel.As a monster movie, “Godzilla” really shines. The film follows the 1954 original by focusing on the terror of facing the unknown while providing social and political commentary on the world as it is. There is an especially large focus on the government and the Fukushima incident, with both being done in an effectively realistic way.The cast of “Godzilla” is solid, with Hiroki Hasagawa leading the charge as cabinet secretary Rando Yaguchi. Hasagawa is serious and believable, but some of the other cast members come across as over-the-top, which creates some unnecessarily goofy moments.Unfortunately, while the acting is good, the large cast prevent any deep character development from happening. The film makes the government its own character, which helps with the previously mentioned commentary but makes the individual characters harder to care about. This also leads to the problem of there being too many characters at a point, with the film introducing new people almost every minute.Visually, “Godzilla” provides a lot to admire. The CGI in the first half of the film is sub par, but the second half dramatically improves. There is also a nice blending of motion capture, miniatures, real life and CGI that creates a distinct visual mix. The film also features some great cinematography, and no shot is repeated twice to keep things consistently flowing forward.Verdict:Despite having some plot issues and awkward CGI in its first half, “Resurgence” firmly establishes Godzilla as the king of monsters once again. 7.5 Sizzle Reel Finale (Ep. 24 – Teen Titans, Star Trek: Discovery and more) ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025 ReddIt Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Chris Garcia is a senior film and journalism double major from Midland, Texas.

Tribute to Limerick teens killed in RIC ambush

first_imgTwitter Advertisement Previous articleLimerick’s Bishop-elect saddened over Pope’s retirementNext articleDebt collectors add to agony of Limerick cancer patients admin WhatsApp Facebook A commemorative scroll has been produced to help defray the cost of the memorial stone that will be unveiled at the site of the tragedy on Easter week-end by the Meelick/Parteen and Cratloe War of Independence Commemoration Committee who are trying to make contact with any living relatives of the O’Donovans to invite them to the ceremony.Recalling the details of the event, Tom Toomey said that on the morning of Sunday, February 20, 1921, the O’Donovan brothers, Cecil (18) Thomas (17) and Aidan (14) left their home at 3, Emma Villas in Thomondgate to walk to Blackwater Mill in Parteen along with their cousin Brendan O’Donovan (19) to search for birds nests in the ruins of the mill.Neither the O’Donovans nor their cousin had any involvement in politics or political movements.Arriving at the mill around noon, they were seen moving around the ruins by a person who mistook them for IRA men on a training exercise.They didn’t notice the approach of a convoy of RIC policemen and Black and Tans that stopped near where McMahon’s public house and mortuary now stands.Captain David Sturrock, the Intelligence office accompanying the convoy, later stated that he had received information that the IRA was drilling at the mill and it was on the foot of this information that the convoy was sent out. The two men in charge Inspector John Greally and Captain Sturrock moved up to investigate. Sturrock stated that he saw seven to nine men streaming out from the mill.While the officers were still investigating, shots were fired from the convoy and Aidan O’Donovan fell mortally wounded after being hit in the chest. Cecil O’Donovan was hit by a bullet between the eyes and was killed instantly. Their cousin Brendan managed to escape through the grounds of the mill and a badly shocked Thomas O’Donovan surrendered to Captain Sturrock.A military inquiry and court inquiry left many unanswered questions over what happened including the identity of the person who gave the order to fire while the officers in charge were still investigating.Cecil and Aidan’s father, Thomas (Snr.) died in 1927 when he was about 59 years of age and his wife Alice lived on until 1959 when she was well into her eighties.Thomas, who survived the tragedy, subsequently moved to England and lost contact with the family.Francis, who was the seventh of the O’Donovan’s nine children, joined the British Army during the second World War. He died in London in 1943 from illness picked up while serving in Aden. He was only thirty-four and unmarried when he died.Anyone wishing to contribute to the memorial or with information on the O’Donovans can contact Tom Toomey at 086-3114867 or Padraig Og O Ruairc at 086-3148496.Above: Cecil O’Donovan (18) and his 14-year-old brother Aidan who died in the Blackwater ambush. NINETY-one years after two Limerick city teenagers were shot dead by the RIC and Black and Tans in a South East Clare ambush, a memorial is to be erected to their memory.Known locally as the ‘Blackwater tragedy’, the deaths of Thomondgate brothers Aidan and Cecil O’Donovan are the subject of a detailed study by Limerick historian Tom Toomey who will give a public lecture at Browne’s pub in Parteen at 7.30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 20.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Linkedin Email Print NewsLocal NewsTribute to Limerick teens killed in RIC ambushBy admin – February 13, 2013 1162 last_img read more

Olivia Ambrose kidnapping suspect due in court after Boston disappearance

first_imgimaginima/iStock(BOSTON) — A Boston man is expected to appear in Charlestown Municipal Court Wednesday in connection with the alleged kidnapping of a 23-year-old woman.Ahead of the scheduled arraignment, defense attorneys requested that suspect Victor Pena undergo a mental health evaluation, reported ABC Boston affiliate WCVB.Pena, 38, was charged with kidnapping after authorities say he was found at his Charlestown apartment Tuesday with Olivia Ambrose, who disappeared Saturday night.Detectives found Ambrose “standing next to Pena crying with a horrified look on her face,” authorities said, according to ABC Boston affiliate WCVB.Additional charges could follow, police said Tuesday.Ambrose’s nearly 48-hour disappearance started Saturday night after she left Hennessey’s Bar in Boston with a man who has been identified and eliminated as a suspect, police said.Ambrose was then engaged by two men, one of whom was identified as Pena, police said, citing surveillance video.The other man seen on video has since been cleared by detectives, police said Wednesday.Surveillance video showed Pena physically guiding Ambrose, according to authorities, who said the young woman wasn’t going along willingly.Ambrose’s family reported her missing on Sunday, police said, prompting a massive search, and the investigation led authorities on Tuesday to Pena’s apartment.Ambrose was taken to a hospital, police said. The 23-year-old then returned to her family’s home Tuesday night, according to WCVB.Police are investigating whether Ambrose and the suspect met at the bar or had a chance meeting on the street, authorities said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The changing form of Antarctic biodiversity

first_imgAntarctic biodiversity is much more extensive, ecologically diverse and biogeographically structured than previously thought. Understanding of how this diversity is distributed in marine and terrestrial systems, the mechanisms underlying its spatial variation, and the significance of the microbiota is growing rapidly. Broadly recognizable drivers of diversity variation include energy availability and historical refugia. The impacts of local human activities and global environmental change nonetheless pose challenges to the current and future understanding of Antarctic biodiversity. Life in the Antarctic and the Southern Ocean is surprisingly rich, and as much at risk from environmental change as it is elsewherelast_img
