Mastercard pays £290m for Travelex division

first_img MASTERCARD is buying the prepaid cash card business of foreign exchange group Travelex for £290m, boosting its presence in a fast-growing financial services segment.Mastercard said the transaction would be $0.04 (£0.025) dilutive to its 2011 earnings per share as a result of amortisation and integration costs. It added it could pay an extra £35m if the business meets certain performance targets.Travelex’s card programme management (CPM) division provides prepaid “cash passports” for overseas travellers to use at cash machines or to make purchases.MasterCard is the world’s second-largest credit and debit card processing company, behind rival Visa Inc. Both companies have said they plan to devote some of the billions of dollars of cash they have on hand to make acquisitions.Mastercard sees pre-paid cards as one of the fastest growing parts of the financial services industry, with volumes in this sector set to reach more than $840bn by 2017.“The acquisition of Travelex’s CPM operations underscores MasterCard’s commitment to the global prepaid business, which remains a key strategic focus for us,” said Ajay Banga, MasterCard president and chief executive.For Travelex, the transaction provides it with extra cash for its own expansion plans.The deal will not change the shareholding structure of Travelex, majority-owned by private equity group Apax and often touted as a potential candidate for a listing. alison.lock Thursday 9 December 2010 9:07 am More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailWomenTales.com20 Pieces of Clothing Older Women should AviodWomenTales.comArticles VallyThis NBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesArticles VallyWork from Home | Search AdWork From Home for a USA company Might Be More Fun Than You ThinkWork from Home | Search AdStar BlvdThis Is The Woman Behind Tom Selleck’s SuccessStar BlvdAdviser.WikiWhat No One Tells You About The Most Expensive Dog BreedsAdviser.Wiki Sharecenter_img Mastercard pays £290m for Travelex division Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Joe Moody elbow that sparked biggest comeback in Super Rugby history

first_imgTuesday May 15, 2018 Joe Moody elbow that sparked biggest comeback in Super Rugby history Crusaders front rower Joe Moody was suspended after he was cited for this incident that led up to his try against the Waratahs in the first half of Saturday’s Super Rugby clash in Christchurch. Moody pleaded guilty to the charge. A SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee accepted a guilty plea from All Black Moody, after he was charged was contravening Law 9.12: Striking with hand or arm.He appeared to bump Beale out of the way, landing his forearm on Beale’s chin in the process.It somehow wasn’t picked up by officials on the field, or the TMO, and the New Zealand commentators seemed to ignore it, with only light reference made of the way he cleared his path towards the tryline.Their Australian counterparts, however, were less forgiving, with former Wallaby Rod Kafer saying:“That’s an elbow to the throat of a player unprotected. It’s a red-card offence. The try should not be scored. The guy should not be on the field.”Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following:“With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 4 weeks due to the dangerous contact with the opposing Player’s head.“However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s excellent judicial record, good character and guilty plea at the earliest possible opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 2 weeks.”“The player is therefore suspended for 2 weeks, up to and including Friday 25 May 2018.”The Waratahs were leading 29-0 when Moody scored. The try sparked a historic comeback, as the Crusaders went on to win the match 31-29, making it the biggest comeback in Super Rugby history.Full highlights:credit: sanzaar/super rugby tvADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The site on which the house was built presented it’s own set of intricacies and opportunities. The narrow site is bound by houses on either side but is fortunate to face parks at both the front and the rear. This rare find in inner city Melbourne is initially what attracted the client. The small site is located in a suburb where house and land sizes are traditionally big. The client wanted to create a generous house that was spatially inkeeping with those in the area.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellA simple architectural language of masonry, timber & stone was enlisted for the house. The materials are exposed for what they are, chosen for their unique character and pushed to their physical extents. Whether through brick perforated screens, steel cantilevers or custom timber claddings.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThere was great emphasis placed on the front façade due to the house being infill between neighbouring buildings. It was our ambition that the house engaged with its environment and the individual. A key strategy employed to do this involved layering up the front elevation to the street to create depth as opposed to a flat facade.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe house presents itself to the public and does not seek refuge behind a fence. Whilst doing so it only hints of its inner workings through materiality allowing a mounting of suspense. The breezeway brick screen is a key device and creates these necessary layers. It serves multiple purposes. The first being a strong idea of entry by creating a secondary landscaped space which gives the property a sense of intimacy.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe steel entry canopy folds out between the screen welcoming you and it’s at this point that there is a mental and physical threshold where one moves from the public to the private. The second purpose was to create a permanent privacy screen for the Master bedroom which was situated at the front of the house so that it could engage with the adjacent park.Save this picture!First Floor PlanFrom the exterior the architectural language purposely allows the building to interact with its environment. Exaggerated cantilevered steel beams frame views and the expansive timber cladding acts a blank canvas for the changing shadows that it creates.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellUpon entry to the house it was our ambition to create a feeling of generosity through space and materiality. This was done by reducing the uses of the ground floor. The living area was naturally located at the rear of the site to embrace the park. This allowed for the bedrooms to be elevated to the tree tops on the first floor and created privacy whilst retaining views.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe client’s spatial needs meant the buildings envelope spread from boundary to boundary. It was therefor important to enliven the program of the house and this was achieved by the insertion of a courtyard. This brought life to the plan, landscape inside the house whilst also allowing Northern light to penetrate the floorplan over the two stories.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe house is refreshing. It requires minimal furnishing to feel warm and hospitable due to the soft natural finishes. The floorboards, stone and masonry here are on show and the light fittings and furniture are purposefully simple and pared back allowing the interiors to breathe. It feels raw whilst achieving elegance through composition, texture, volume light and program.Project gallerySee allShow lessTen Buildings Pushing The Boundaries of WoodArchitecture NewsFarming Cuba: Urban Agriculture from the Ground UpPublications Share photographs:  Derek SwalwellPhotographs:  Derek Swalwell Roc Projects “COPY” Builder: Photographs 2013last_img read more

Earthy, simplicity… these are the first two words which the clients pronounced during our first meeting as fundaments of the inspirational concept leading the project of their Mediterranean house in Italy. And it was suddenly reciprocal love. Others words we used were: open space, integration, solidity, continuity, natural, easy, sustainable and environmentally friendly.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Aldo AmorettiThe context: an existent private house with garden and swimming pool of about 200 sq.m with a fantastic view and natural environment on the extreme western Ligurian coast, at about 6 km to the French border and the Côte d’Azur. The house was originally built in 1970 and renovated fifteen years ago.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiThe clients (LJ from now), an adorable Spanish couple,  firstly fell in love with the view from the south terrace: sky, sea, rocks and Mediterranean nature, French-Ligurian alps, gulfs and capes as a skyline. Immediately they decided the property would become their Italian home.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiThe project of extension that I submitted to the previous owners was ready and that was fine to them, but finally, they decided to renovate completely the existent building, and so we did. The fundamental request was to have an energetically efficient and easy to use project, made of a few selected materials, the same if it was possible, in both interiors and exteriors.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiNot important if they would change aspect with the time, but they should have to become old in a natural and charming way: they had to be resilient and sustainable. The choice that we finally assumed concerning the materials,  always in common agreement, resulted as follows: larch wood for roof, pergola, doors, windows and furniture; natural resin surface for the interiors floors; calcestre for the external floor; lime plaster for the external and internal finish; concrete for the interiors of extension; local stone (puddinga) for  walls in the garden continuing with façade.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Aldo AmorettiThe external walls and the roof of the existent building were almost totally rebuilt and insulated using sustainable and natural materials: brick bloc for partitions, wood panels and fiber wood for insulation. The external finish in intonaco dilavato, a lime plaster resulting in a traditional technique of pose using local materials. The same material but with a different pose system was used for the external floor, made in calcestre.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiThe way of construction and the technical installations with solar panel and vmc allowed us to get the maximal energetic class that became AAAA+. The swimming pool was reduced to optimize water and energy consumption and totally rebuilt with new technical installations, water treatment and finishing in dark grey glass mosaic that give to the water the colors mosaic that gives to the water the color of changing the sky.Save this picture!© Aldo AmorettiProject gallerySee allShow less7 Must-See Pavilions at the 2019 Venice BiennaleArchitecture NewsASICS EMEA Headquarters / Powerhouse CompanySelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardcenter_img CopyAbout this officePietra AlbornoOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVentimigliaItalyPublished on May 17, 2019Cite: “LJ House / Pietra Alborno” 17 May 2019.

Kidnappers free Israeli Druze journalist Riad Ali of CNN

first_img Reporters Without Borders welcomed the quick release of journalist and interpreter for US news network CNN, Riad Ali, snatched on 27 September in the centre of Gaza City, and released into the custody of Palestinian police the following day. Reporters Without Borders welcomed the quick release of journalist and interpreter for US news network CNN, Riad Ali, snatched on 27 September in the centre of Gaza City, and released into the custody of Palestinian police the following day.The international press freedom organisation however urged the Palestinian National Authority to ensure an early and thorough investigation into the disturbing circumstances of the kidnapping to find and prosecute those responsible. The abduction of the CNN journalist had had the immediate effect of intimidating foreign and local journalists working in the Gaza Strip, it said.Palestinian police chief, Gen. Saed al-Ajez, said that Riad Ali had been handed over to him early in the evening of 28 September but he did not say by whom.Shortly before Ali’s release, a video was made public of him in captivity saying that he had been kidnapped by the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and that he and other Druze members of his family had done military service in the Israeli Army. He then called on fellow Druze not to serve in the Israeli Army, since their cause was the same as that of the Palestinians.The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade had previously denied any involvement in the kidnapping of the CNN journalist condemning such acts as “harmful” to Palestinian cause and calling for Ali’s release.————————————————— 28.09.2004 – Reporters Without Borders urges release of CNN producer Riad AliReporters Without Borders today condemned the kidnapping yesterday in Gaza of journalist Riad Ali, an Israeli citizen of Arab Druze origin who works as an interpreter and producer for the US television news network CNN.Aged in his 30s, Ali was abducted by gunmen in the district of Rimal, in the centre of Gaza, while returning to his hotel with two US colleagues, CNN correspondent Ben Wedeman and photographer Mary Rogers. The identity of his abductors and their motives for taking him are unknown.Reporters Without Borders called for Ali’s immediate and unconditional release and appealed to all the Palestinian factions and armed groups to respect the right of journalists to move about freely, whatever their nationality.The organisation also called on the Israeli army to rescind its decision to deny Israeli journalists access to the Gaza Strip. This decision was briefly enforced last year. Thereafter, Israeli journalists were again allowed into the Gaza Strip subject to their signing a statement absolving the Israeli army of any responsibility for their security.Wedemen, who witnessed Ali’s abduction, said a Peugeot 504 car cut in front of their taxi and a young Palestinian with an AK-47 rifle got out: “He pulled out a revolver, pointed it at the windshield and asked which of us was Riad Ali. Riad calmly replied, ‘I am’ and the man told him to come with him.” The gunmen were not masked, Wedeman said.Wedeman added: “We come to Gaza often. Lots of people know us and, on the whole, we have always been able to operate down there without any problem. It’s a generally hospitable environment. I’ve never had to deal with men getting out of a car and pointing a gun at my head.”The abductors have so far not made any demands known. The Hamas spokesmen in the Gaza Strip, Mounir Al-Masri, ruled out any possibility of his organisation being involved. “We condemn the kidnapping of journalists which is contrary to the interests of the Palestinians,” he said.”We in the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade condemn the kidnapping of the journalist and consider its a mistaken effort that harms the Palestinian cause on all levels,” the group said in a statement. “We call for his immediate release.” RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes May 16, 2021 Find out more RSF_en PalestineMiddle East – North Africa News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Help by sharing this information Organisation PalestineMiddle East – North Africa September 29, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Kidnappers free Israeli Druze journalist Riad Ali of CNNcenter_img News to go further June 3, 2021 Find out more Abdallah Al-Shami, a spokesman for Islamic Jihad, said the abduction “damages the reputation of the Palestinian people and their glorious intifada.”In July, the Gaza Strip saw an unprecedented wave of abductions of foreigners and Palestinians against a backdrop of clashes between Palestinians and chaotic security. But, until now, Palestinian activist groups have tended not to bother foreign reporters or obstruct their work.Ali worked for the Israel’s Channel One television from 1998 to 2000. In 2000, he was put in charge of reporting in the Occupied Territories, especially the Gaza Strip, where he carried out several interview with masked Palestinian militants. He was dismissed due to differences of opinion with Channel One’s management in 2002 and was then hired by CNN.

News30 million hits so far for virtuoso Tommy EmmanuelBy Eric Fitzgerald – July 20, 2016 718 Guitarist Tommy Emmanuel plays Lime Tree Theatre this Sunday July 24Tommy Emmanuel, Australia’s legendary guitarist, has a professional career that spans almost five decades. His virtuoso playing has earned him two Grammy award nominations. Tommy plays more than 300 concerts a year, gathering hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide, bringing him from international jazz festivals to shows with the Sydney Philharmonic, Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry to performances for the Masai people in remote areas of Kenya.Emmanuel has been voted Favorite Acoustic Guitarist in both Guitar Player Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s reader polls.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The YouTube sensation has more than 30,000,000 views and you can witness the master in person in full flight at the Lime Tree Theatre this Sunday July 24.Tommy answered  Limerick Post’s questions this week.After 30 million views … Has YouTube and your videos had a positive impact and revolutionised the amount of fans worldwide that are now aware of your music?Youtube and the Internet have had an amazing effect on many artists’ careers. Personally, I have been amazed by the coverage that I get from social media. My career in Europe really took off because of Youtube and then China, Russia and other Asian countries followed.I’ve enjoyed working with creative people making videos and capturing live performances in the hope of reaching into people’s lives and surprising them.Since the ’50s the guitar has been at the forefront of mainstream music evolution. A look at the singles charts today revealed no guitar sounds in the top 10. Will the guitar sound lead the way again in mainstream popular music culture?I think the guitar is still the coolest instrument on the planet. I also think there are more players than ever out there. Perhaps pop music is not as riff-driven as it used to be but there is still a lot of great players taking their music all over the world. We are all thankful that people still love to come and see live music being performed by passionate artists.Lookin’ forward to at the Lime Tree Theatre this Sunday July 24?I haven’t played in Limerick for quite a few years and I’m looking forward to the concert on Sunday. I have a lot of fond memories of playing my first shows in Ireland to really enthusiastic music lovers. Ireland is one of the birth-places of great music.Tommy Emmanuel performs at Lime Tree Theatre this Sunday July 24. Linkedinlast_img read more
