ECB fears strength of Ireland bailout

first_img ECB fears strength of Ireland bailout Sunday 19 December 2010 11:21 pm FEARS over the security of Ireland’s bank bailout package have been raised by the European Central Bank, amid concerns it could impact on its ability to offer funds to support the Eurozone financial system.The Frankfurt institution has “serious concerns” over the legal certainty of legislation rushed through in order to provide Ireland with an emergency bailout.The deal could impact on the ECB’s rights, as well as those of the Irish central bank and possibly other central banks within the Eurozone, a position paper on the ECB’s website said.Underlying concerns is the size of the Irish bailout and the security of the assets put forward as collateral to the arrangement.Recent data shows Irish banks hold €136bn (£115bn) in outstanding loans from the ECB, which equates to almost a quarter of the total in the Eurozone, as well as €45bn in funds from the Irish central bank.The central bank is concerned the strength of collateral assets provided by Ireland could be insufficient, should the bailout not be paid back.Since May the central bank has taken on an increasing number of risks as European economies continue to struggle, having bought €72bn in Eurozone governments’ bonds in order to prevent borrowing costs becoming unmanageable.Last week, it also reached out to Eurozone countries to provide an extra €5bn in subscribed capital in order to shore up its financial stability.Ireland is currently passing legislation to implement its rescue package, though the ECB calls for further clarity in the law to ensure its rights.

State website allows voters to register online

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Any Florida resident who is eligible to vote or is already registered to vote in Florida can use RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov to submit an application, update an existing registration or prefill an application form to print and deliver to a Supervisor of Elections office. Users will need a Florida driver license or state identification (ID) card and the last four digits of their social security number to complete and submit the voter registration application electronically. Once an individual’s identity is verified and the application is deemed complete, a voter information card is issued by the local Supervisor of Elections office.RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov has multiple safeguards in place to verify and protect a person’s identity and personal information, including a state-of-the-art firewall, data encryption, captcha boxes, session time-out after inactivity and the use of multi-screens. The website requires information that only the person seeking to register or change an existing registration should know, such as the issued date of their Florida driver license or state ID card, their Florida driver license or state ID card number and the last four digits of their social security number. All of this information is verified in real-time in order for a person to complete the application process online. If the information cannot be verified, a person is not able to move forward with submitting the application electronically. Additionally, there is no retention of data within the RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov website because it is securely transmitted to an internal system. It is important to note that Florida public records laws still apply to voter registration information that is submitted electronically.“In addition to offering Florida voters a more convenient voter registration application method, RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov will enhance government efficiency, reduce the use of paper applications and generate cost savings for taxpayers,” said FSASE immediate Past President and Clay County Supervisor of Elections Chris Chambless. “The new online voter registration system is a win for voters, state and local government and all tax-paying citizens of Florida.”RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is offered in English and Spanish, is accessible for persons with disabilities and is mobile-friendly.For more details, go here. Please enter your comment!

The website went live on October 1st, as directed by the Florida Legislature in Section 97.0525 Florida Statutes.“At the direction of the Florida Legislature, the department has been hard at work the last two years spearheading the effort to create and implement an online voter registration website that provides Floridians with a secure and more easily accessible way to register to vote,” said Secretary of State Ken Detzner. “I want to thank our key partners, Florida’s 67 county Supervisors of Elections, for their important role in ensuring the success of online voter registration. The right to vote is sacred in our country and I hope that with this new and convenient method, more Floridians will register to vote and engage in the electoral process.”In 2015, the Florida Legislature passed and Governor Rick Scott signed into law a bill directing the department to implement online voter registration on October 1, 2017. Florida joins 35 other states and the District of Columbia that have online voter registration available to their residents.“In today’s digital age, it is important to offer Florida voters a way to complete and submit a voter registration application electronically,” said Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections (FSASE) President and Taylor County Supervisor of Elections Dana Southerland. “Florida Supervisors of Elections worked closely with the Department of State on the development and implementation of RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov to help ensure the website meets the needs of our constituents while maintaining the integrity and accuracy of the registration process.” TAGSVoter Registration Previous articleThe Orange County Procurement Process: Contract Bids and ProposalsNext articleApopka Police Department Arrest Report Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

This early XX century patio-apartment presents the opportunity to reformulate the dwelling’s conditions, adapted to Mediterranean climate, in the urban density of Gracia’s district.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaBeyond solving the housing scheme for a young couple with two daughters the project aims to understand the house as a gallery that connects the street with the inner courtyards enhancing comfort situations in the intermediate spaces as living thresholds.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe needs of the owners allow to enhance the advantages of a productive dwelling by combining a domestic program with a music studio that will replace the old storage room located at the back of the plot. The patio then becomes another inhabited interval of the house.Save this picture!Axonometric 011. Structural interventionThe original dwelling was fragmented into small rooms connected through dark corridors slightly connected with the outside. The potential of the existing space was hidden behind the consequences of several interventions. The new housing system modifies the current distribution and affects the main structure of the apartment.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe first operation consists in erasing the envelope by stripping the ceilings, walls and floors. The rooms were paved with a hydraulic mosaic in a good state, even though the floor had given way due to the pass of time. A selective demolition is carried out reusing 90% of the 918 hydraulic tiles and the old bricks coming from the partitions, which will be relocated in the facades. The tiles will be replaced in strips of the same type in the circulation areas, kitchen, bathroom and dressing room, extending the life of the preexisting pavement as material heritage of the house. The satin finish of the mosaic offers a bright spot in the most interior areas of the house.Save this picture!Plan 03The second intervention proposes a main space based on the succession of different rooms connected by porticos defined by structural interventions in the load walls. With this intervention the visual depth of the house is enhanced and different circulations are granted. From all rooms the inhabitants can enjoy views of the street and the inner courtyard so the boundaries between the domestic and exterior spaces are broken.Save this picture!© Adrià Goula2. Inserting light systemsOnce the structural interventions are done the Interior spaces are redistributed trough light elements that will allow future modifications.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe resulting 3 rooms are interconnected with the insertion of a wooden structure that works as a distribution and storage space. This light construction generates a shared space for the 3 rooms so they don’t need to include storage furniture. This strategy provides a great flexibity to all rooms that can accept exchangeble programs.Save this picture!SectionIn the courtyard a structure made of steel profiles and ropes is introduced in order to make a seasonal porch that improves the climate conditions and allows the use of the patio during the hotter months. To this structure we weld round 14 mm steel profiles that serve as the support for a wooden board stairway that allows access to the studio’s roof, where an urban garden and a solarium are planned.Save this picture!© Adrià Goula3. Climate strategiesPassive climate strategies are enhanced by understanding that most of the year’s domestic life will occur in the yard or in the intermediate thresholds. In this sense we optimize the interior-exterior relationship, create shade in summer and use a carpentry system that allows the maximum openings in order to inhabit an intermediate gallery.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe patios offer great conditions of thermal regulation, natural lighting and biological exchange. The extension of the small courtyard in the center of the house and the sequence of porches offers a cross ventilation that help to cool the apartment in the hottest months.Save this picture!Axonometric 03The bricks coming from the demolition of the existing partitions are reused as double façade​​, improving thermal inertia and acoustic insulation.

“Proof of life” of journalist abducted a year ago in Syria

first_img March 12, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is delighted to learn that, almost exactly one year after South African freelance photojournalist Shiraaz Mohamed was abducted by gunmen in northwestern Syria, his colleagues have obtained proof that he is still alive. Follow the news on Syria Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria to go further SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses Hostages Journalists and community members take part in a vigil in Johannesburg on January 18, 2017 to demand the release of the South African photojournalist Shiraaz Mohamed Organisation Receive email alerts News January 10, 2018 “Proof of life” of journalist abducted a year ago in Syriacenter_img RSF_en News February 3, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists Gift of the Givers, the South African humanitarian NGO with which Mohamed was working at the time of his abduction, has reported in a statement that questions drafted by his family were conveyed through intermediaries to his supposed abductors and that, according to the family, only Mohamed could have given the answers that came back. Until now, the NGO and Mohamed’s family had not been able to obtain any reliable information about his status since his abduction a year ago and they still do not know why he was kidnapped. “We are relieved to learn that Shiraaz Mohamed, a freelance journalist who went to Syria to document the humanitarian situation, is still alive,” RSF said. “Although the identity of his abductors is still unknown, we call for his immediate and unconditional release and that of all the other journalists currently held hostage in Syria.” Mohamed and two Gift of the Givers employees were abducted on 10 January 2017 by armed men who identified themselves as “representatives of all the armed groups in Syria” and said they wanted to resolve a “misunderstanding.” The NGO’s two employees were released shortly thereafter. The military defeats suffered by Islamic State in 2017 and the loss of its strongholds in Iraq and Syria have yet to be reflected in any improvement in security for journalists. And RSF has not as yet been able to obtain any information about the fate of the journalists who had been held by Islamic State in Mosul and Raqqa, cities recently recovered by Iraqi forces and a US-backed Arab-Kurdish coalition. At least 29 journalists and citizen-journalists, including seven foreign journalists, are still held hostage by armed groups in Syria, which is ranked 177th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Do Prisoners Have Right To Choose Medicinal System For Treatment? Rajasthan High Court To Consider In Plea Filed By Aasaram Bapu’s Son

first_imgNews UpdatesDo Prisoners Have Right To Choose Medicinal System For Treatment? Rajasthan High Court To Consider In Plea Filed By Aasaram Bapu’s Son Akshita Saxena11 May 2021 1:51 AMShare This – xThe Rajasthan High Court on Monday sought response from the State Government on a petition seeking Ayurveda medical treatment for Asaram Bapu who is lodged in Jodhpur’s Central Jail in connection to a sexual assault case. The writ petition filed by his son stresses on the fundamental right of prisoners under Article 21 of the Constitution to avail of efficacious medical treatment. It raises the following questions for the Court’s consideration: 1. Whether the fundamental right of a person to be medically treated under Article 21 of the Constitution encompasses within itself the right of a Prisoner to undergo treatment under such a medicinal system, out of the various systems of medicines Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy etc recognized by the State, as he desires or is hopeful of improving his health? 2. Whether the State’s action of compelling a Prisoner to undergo medical treatment under such a system of medicines as is expressly denied by the Prisoner or which is different from the one opted or desired by the Prisoner is in derogation of Article 14 of the Constitution? 3. Whether the right to life and health of a Prisoner under Article 21 of the Constitution of India is not breached by the State when it denies to the Prisoner his choice of the system of medicines as also treatment by and under the guidance of an expert medical practitioner of his choice in a situation where the treatment administered by the State on the Prisoner is not improving his health condition but his health continues to deteriorate? A Single Bench of Justice Arun Bhansali has fixed the case for hearing on May 18. Asaram Bapu was apprehended by the Police in September 2013 and was sentenced to life imprisonment by a Jodhpur court in connection to a sexual assault case. The instant petition has been filed by his son, alleging that the health conditions of Asaram Bapu has been deteriorating over the past three years of judicial custody due to inappropriate and inefficient medical treatment being offered to him by the prison authorities. “The treatment being administered on Petitioner No. 1’s father at the instance of the Prison Administration has not been able to restrict the progression of the medical conditions but his father 1s developing more life endangering ailments primarily for want of appropriate and efficacious medical treatment,” the plea states. It is stated that for more than 7 decades of his life prior to arrest, Asaram Bapu had availed of Ayurveda and other alternative medicinal systems and resultantly, his body had long back become accustomed to Ayurveda. Thus, it is argued that denial of Ayurveda medical treatment to Asaram Bapu by the prison authorities is violative of his fundamental rights under Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution. “Right to health essentially includes the right to be healthy and right to be medically treatment. The right to be medically treated cannot be reduced to a mere formality and its enforcement has to be solely for the purpose of betterment in the health of the person. The right to choose a medicinal system for treatment is an inseparable part of the fundamental right to medical treatment under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. Prisoners, be they undertrial or convict, are no exception to this fundamental and constitutional right to choose a system of medicine according to which they would like to be treatment. It cannot be permissible for the State to enforce its choice of medicinal system on any Prisoner even in a situation where treatment under such a system of medicine as is opted by the Prisoner out of the systems of medicine recognized by the State is not available for any reason which is not attributable to the Prisoner,” the plea states.
