Results at the insurance business worsened from a loss of €202m last year to a loss of €519m in 2010. But profits were sharply up at the group’s bank, from €1.36bn in 2009 to €5.86bn last year. Chief executive Jan Hommen said: “The operational separation of the bank and insurer was completed at year-end”, paving the way for a sale.Despite the bank’s improved results, however, its property loans still pose a problem. Overall, non-performing loans worsened 2.2 per cent, with the lion’s share of the decline in real estate financing.ING said it was making efforts to cut its property exposure, reducing investment in real estate developments by €500m between the fourth quarters of 2009 and 2010. Its core tier one capital ratio improved from 7.8 per cent to 9.6 per cent under Basel II.

The building is located in the close surrounding of the “Hexenturm” – the medieval gate to the small town. It demands a sensitive reaction in terms of volumetry. Therefore, the construction volume is divided into several parts. On top of the solid one-story base, two blocks with different heights are built. The three-story-volumetry on the south side takes on the height of the neighboring building. Its northern counterpart, the two-story-volume, is pleasantly kept in the background. Thereby, the historic Hexenturm is respected and in no competition in its expression. Despite the mural character of the neighboring buildings, the originality of the building does not disappear thanks to a smooth structured, colored front with exposed concrete.Save this picture!© Aytac PekdemirSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!PlansIn the semi-basement is the doctor’s office. The big interior room is divided into several rooms with different utility rooms. The open-space reception and waiting room divides the interior rooms into a public and semi-public area.

Newark residents circumnavigate UK to raise £18k for local social issues

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Tagged with: fundraising events Youth Eighty residents from Newark have taken part in a circumnavigation of the UK by boat to raise money and awareness to support issues relating to the district’s poor social mobility.The locals, none of whom had any prior sailing experience took part in a six-week national sailing relay around the whole of the UK in aid of YMCA Newark and Sherwood, to fund its new Community and Activity Village.The sail started in Portsmouth, and circumnavigated Plymouth, Cardiff, Liverpool, Greenock, Inverness, Hull and London, where the Tower Bridge ceremoniously raised for them, before finishing back in Portsmouth. The expedition was a joint venture between YMCA N&S and Tall Ships Youth Trust.Residents as young as 13 took part in the sail, where they ate, slept and lived on board for between four and six days straight. They also celebrated with other local YMCAs as each new crew navigated the waves. Other participants included apprentices, college students, council workers and YMCA residents living in the charity’s supported accommodation following a period of homelessness.When the final group of sailors arrived back in Portsmouth, the home of Tall Ships, they were greeted by Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, who is an ambassador of the sailing charity. Residents as young as 13 took part in the sail, where they ate, slept and lived on board for between four and six days. Other participants included apprentices, college students, council workers and YMCA residents living in the charity’s supported accommodation following a period of homelessness.The first of its kind Community Village will help to reduce the lack of opportunities to the rural area which is currently ranked 323rd out of 324 by the Social Mobility Commission.The scale ranks all of the local authorities in England in terms of life chances of someone born into a disadvantaged background. The East Midlands has been identified as the region with the worst outcomes for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with Newark and Sherwood the worst-performing local authority.The money raised will help YMCA Newark and Sherwood to continue building spaces in the Village, which will offer integrated family programmes, sensory classes and other facilities, as well as scholarships for those needing a helping hand. Its aim is to help young people acquire skills to help them through life.Craig Berens, Chief Operating Officer of YMCA Newark and Sherwood, said: “The cornerstone of our work is in creating equal life opportunities for all, no matter what their background is. Early life experiences educate your core values into adulthood, and opportunities for young people to thrive often rely on an unfair postcode lottery which negatively affects social wellness, healthy living and youth development.“We are delighted with the work of our sailing superstars in the expedition. The donations that keep coming in are so appreciated, as they will help us to make a real difference in our community. Our youngsters need the right support to believe in themselves, to get jobs, the right education, do what they love, and lead fulfilled lives.” Melanie May | 8 November 2019 | News Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1  206 total views,  2 views todaylast_img read more

Caltech’s Resnick Sustainability Institute Students Wins 2nd Place in DOE Business Plan Competition

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Top of the News Business News Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * A team of students who worked with Caltech’s Resnick Sustainability Institute have won second place in the western finals of a recent DOE (Department of Energy) business plan competition, it was announced today.Chai Energy is developing a mobile phone app for monitoring energy usage in the home. This has the potential of enabling consumers to understand and manage their energy usage in real time and lead to savings of both energy and money, according to a news statement.Chai won $40,000 in the contest, which is called First Look West (FLoW). FLoW is a consortium of California Institute of Technology led by the Resnick Institute, University of Southern California and the UC Los Angeles and represents the Western Region of the DOE’s National Clean Energy Business Plan Competition (NCEBPC).Chai was formed as a result of a group of California Institute of Technology (Caltech) students working together on a Resnick Sustainability Institute-sponsored team in the US Solar Decathlon, a competition focused on building the most creative and energy efficient solar house.“During our project to build the most energy efficient solar house, we learned that a very basic energy problem exists in most households,” said Cole Hershkowitz, one of the founders of Chai.“The majority of consumers don’t know where energy and money is being wasted in their homes,” Hershkowitz said. “But with insight into their usage and waste, they suddenly have much greater power to reduce them.”The team is working with Southern California Edison, Digi International hardware, and UC Irvine researchers as key partners in a one hundred home pilot with the goal of launching the product later this year. Chai estimates a total addressable market of 200 million homeowners throughout the United States.“Our goal is to enable transformational technology that can influence the future of sustainability,” said Neil Fromer, Executive Director of the Resnick Sustainability Institute. “By potentially empowering people in as many as 200 million households, a big impact is possible.” Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Retired Limerick postman delivers the goods on Winning Streak

Patrick retired from An Post three years ago with 37 years of service under his belt, having worked in Limerick throughout his career so obviously, he is well known throughout Adare.He was nicknamed “the Yank” amongst his An Post friends and co-workers for years having being born in Ireland, he grew up in Connecticut in the United States where he lived for 16 years. He never lost the American twang in his accent and it was something he got friendly slagging for over the years. These days he claims to also use his accent to the annoyance of his daughters!Patrick loves to travel, enjoys watching movies and gardening and is also enjoying the extra time afforded to him by retirement.

Sarah Kiely at The Boro Field.A GREEN space in Janesboro, which is being used for illegal dumping and antisocial behaviour, should be developed into a community centre with astro turf pitches and a dog-walking area.That’s the view of Fine Gael City East local election hopeful Sarah Kiely who spoke this week about the concerns of residents living in Janesboro.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The green space, which is next to Janesboro AFC’s grounds, is known locally as ‘The Boro Field’ and Ms Kiely says it should now be made a priority by Gardaí.“The current issues include illegal dumping of garden waste and more importantly, household rubbish. Some houses in Colbert Avenue have back gardens backing on to this site and it is an obvious negative for them.“Horses are often left there for days and animal welfare is a huge concern. They have no shelter and the owners are unknown,” she told the Limerick Post.“When scramblers and quads are being used there is a serious risk to safety. They are used on the main roads and avenues of Rathbane and Janesboro, making their way down to the field where mayhem takes over. Dog walkers are fearful and kids can’t play safely.”Sarah believes community policing would go a long way to addressing some of the issues.“Visibility is also key.“The solution is not a simple one. It will take input from residents and the council as well as the Gardaí on a meaningful level. Immediate intervention is required from a safety aspect so if enough people contact the Gardaí, it would put it up the list of priorities.”She is proposing that the area, also known as ‘The Wild Boro’, is used to develop astro turf pitches and a dog-walking area.“A community centre is also badly needed. I know that’s a massive undertaking but we might as well go big or go home. If we had a representative on the council, we could advocate for this at a local and national level. There are lots of ways to access funding, we just need to give it serious effort with multidisciplinary input from all local stakeholders.“The fact is Old Christians GAA club and Janesboro AFC pay to use Younger Munsters astro turf during the winter. Why can’t a community our size have our own?“Not only would it be fantastic for our clubs, it would go a long way to addressing some of the issues that are having an adverse impact on the community. Rathbane, Kennedy and Glasgow Park, Carey’s Road and Janesboro would all benefit from this proposal,” she concluded.

Chinberg’s Blarney Stone Brownies are magical stones but kissing them may render one speechless rather than eloquent.“Bet you can’t kiss just one,” the award-winning Irish cook said, laughing.His Irish Potato Casserole is “fit” for the Nuns of Kylemore Abby, the oldest of the Irish Benedictine Abbeys. And those lucky enough to dine on the casserole should “count their blessings.”Chinberg’s first-place entrée was described as a leprechaun’s delicacy but it was a yeoman’s task to get the Beef Log from the Mystical Mountain of Mourne to the table.“A brisket is hard to work with,” Chinberg said. “I marinated it for three days, then rubbed it with a spicy mixture and chilled it for about 36 hours. I removed the spicy mixture and covered the meat with sliced mushrooms and bacon slices to keep it moist. Then, I rolled it into a tight log and tied it using market strings and cooked it slow for about three hours.”Chinberg wasn’t sure how the brisket would be “accepted” but an empty platter was a good indication that the Beef Log has passed the taste test.“This was again a wonderful event,” said Bronda Barron, event coordinator. “The food is always delicious and innovative, and I’m amazed at the creativity of the cooks. The Irish Cooking Contest is always a lot of fun. I want to thank all of those who participated and John Parker and Diane Barker for agreeing to judge the contest. I know it was not easy because all of the dishes were fantastic.” When it comes to Irish cooking, Gary Chinberg is “Mr. Irish” or, this year, he might be “Mr. Irish Potato.”Chinberg’s “Heavenly Irish Potato Casserole” had the judges of the 2010 Troy University Irish Cooking Contest taking a second and third “taste” and everyone else crowding the table to get to the casserole.Chinberg of Troy seemingly can’t be beaten when it comes to Irish cooking. Each year he rises above the competition and takes home the most “green” ribbons.

The gains came from outside London, as the total value of its residential housing stock recorded a £26.2bn fall, the first decrease since 2009.In comparison, London’s housing stock is still worth £1.77 trillion – more than four times the combined value of homes in Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cardiff, Bristol, Liverpool, and Sheffield.The total value of Northern Ireland’s housing stock reached £100.7bn in 2018, analysis has found.
