This was its strongest quarterly rate since the winter of 2007.The government sector is the gloomiest, with negative hiring intentions of -22 per cent, representing a two decade low. However, overall employers are expecting an increase in recruitment in the three months to June, according to the survey.Voluntary redundancy schemes in local government are frequently oversubscribed, the report found. “We believe this demonstrates that there is actually some confidence among public sector workers that they might be able to find opportunities elsewhere,” said Manpower’s Mark Cahill.Relatively high business confidence in London was confirmed by a separate survey released yesterday by accountancy group ICAEW.“London businesses report that their staff development budget is on average 0.6 per cent higher than 12 months ago,” its report said.This is the first sign of recruitment growth since the end of 2008, ICAEW said.While overall business confidence stands at +9.6 in its index for the beginning of this year, in London morale is up at +20.6.

A small-housing development, eight houses in total, make up this complex situated at the edge of Oslo’s suburbs and city center.  The architects blended  detached house, row house, and apartment concepts to create inventive row houses that could meet a range of different needs.  Versatility, multiple exterior spaces, communal courtyard, submersed parking, and balconies are just some of the features.  More photographs and drawings after the break. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleFour two-storey patio houses, two 154 sqm and two of 130 sqm, one west-facing house of 161 sqm with veranda, and three three-storey, east-facing houses of 136 sqm with balconies. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleBetween the two lines of buildings lies a communal courtyard, with parking beneath, in total 1,868 sqm. All units have three outside spaces: a front garden leading to the main entrance, a back lawn, and a veranda balcony or patio, depending on the type of house. In several units a two-storey well (the patio) with glass on three sides extends upwards from the lowest level, allowing the inhabitants to appreciate the various seasons and elements accordingly, sun, rain, snow, from the indoors. One of the main goals was to ensure that light enters the houses from all angles. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe houses are built in-situ concrete, insulated and faced with narrow black-painted wooden boards, horizontal on the long facades and upright on the short facades. They rely on green energy, and 100 sqm of solar collector panels are mounted on the south-facing façade. All floors have water-borne underfloor heating system, supplemented by gas heater. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DalePer Kr. Monsen from Arkitektur N had the following to say about Housing Bjørnveien; “We live in peculiar times, whilst the car industry makes a great effort to appear to be environmentally friendly, architects have no answer to why their buildings consume twice as much energy as they did 20 years ago. The demands society now makes for a reduction in energy and resource consumption, has not yet filtered through to the majority of designers. Perhaps this is due to a lack of knowledge, perhaps a lack of interest or a lack of goodexamples.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe housing complex in Bjørnveien is a very successful example of high architectonic quality generated by the integration of environmentally sustainable solutions. It is on a tight and demanding site. The long, narrow patio houses are laid in a row, reducing heat loss. The three-storey balcony houses stretch up and light wells reach down to catch and distribute daylight. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe plans are general, with great possibilities for variation. The materials are modest and thermally effective, and the detailing simple. The waterbased heating system is adaptable to future energy sources. All solutions are integrated and serve several purposes; in short, an exemplary project.”Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Jewish Museum, Berlin / Studio LibeskindArchitecture ClassicsSingapore University of Technology and Design / UNStudio + DP ArchitectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Oslo, NorwayLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is launching today a pro bono campaign of unprecedented magnitude with the support of leading American media groups to raise awareness about the American journalist Austin Tice missing in Syria since 2012. February 19, 2015 – Updated on June 8, 2016 Reporters Without Borders launches #FreeAustinTice campaign, a first in US media history News June 7, 2021 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out more Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says United StatesAmericas Follow the news on United States The American journalist Austin Tice disappeared in Syria in August 2012. His work was published by the McClatchy Newspapers, the Washington Post, Associated Press, AFP, as well as CBS, NPR, and BBC. His reporting earned the 2012 George Polk Award for War Reporting and the 2012 McClatchy Newspapers President’s Award. Austin Tice is alive and he is not held by ISIS, according to diverse credible sources.Since September 2012, RSF has been assisting and advising his family. His parents asked RSF to help them raise awareness about their son’s situation. RSF partnered with the global advertising agency J.Walter Thompson to prepare a public awareness campaign in order to do everything possible to bring Austin Tice safely home. J.Walter Thompson developed pro-bono a campaign around the idea of being blindfolded when journalists are missing.“With the #FreeAustinTice campaign, RSF calls on Austin’s captors, whoever they are, to release him without delay and invites all American media and citizens to join Austin’s parents’ appeal. The #FreeAustinTice campaign is launched at a critical moment when the White House is reviewing its policy to secure the release of American hostages”, said Reporters Without Borders Secretary General Christophe Deloire.Take part in the #FreeAustinTice campaignAnyone can take part in the #FreeAustinTice campaign by signing the petition addressed to President Obama and by taking The Blindfold pledge, a symbol of Austin’s unanswered kidnapping. The blindfold symbolizes the fact that when journalists are silenced, we are all deprived of information, we are all blindfolded.To participate, individuals can take a photo of themselves blindfolded and share the call to action on their appropriate social channels:Facebook/Instagram: I take the Blindfold Pledge to raise awareness of the 2012 kidnapping of the American journalist Austin Tice. This is a plea to the US government to seek out answers and bring Austin home. I call on _____ to also take the pledge. #FreeAustinTiceTwitter: I wear the blindfold to #FreeAustinTice. I call on ____ to take the pledgeTwitter: The American journalist Austin Tice disappeared in Syria in 2012. Help us to bring him safely home. Sign the petition #FreeAustinTice.First in US media historyGannett & USA TODAY, GlobalPost, Hearst Newspaper Group, McClatchy Newspapers, The Atlantic Media Group, The Washington Post as well as the National Press Club and the Newseum are already official partners of the #FreeAustinTice campaign. Starting on February 19, 2015, #FreeAustinTice flash banners will be published pro-bono on more than 268 news websites for several weeks all across the United States.“Such a collective mobilization of the American media to raise awareness about a missing American journalist is unheard-of. This is a first in US media history. We cannot thank enough our media partners who offered millions of digital impressions for the #FreeAustinTice campaign banners and the New York Times who donated a full page ad for #FreeAustinTice,” said Reporters Without Borders USA Director Delphine Halgand.”We continue to urge our government to do more to secure Austin’s safe return, and we believe public participation in the campaign will amplify our voice and truly make a difference”, said Debra and Marc Tice, the parents of Austin.“We’re heartened at the enormous support Austin is receiving,” said Washington Post Executive Editor Martin Baron in a statement. “We want to do everything we can to raise awareness of his horrifyingly long captivity and to facilitate his release.”“After nearly 1,000 days in captivity, the time for Austin Tice’s release is long past. We are hopeful that by harnessing the power of social media and the Internet we can convince those holding Austin to free him. His family and friends long for his return”, said James Asher, Washington Bureau Chief for the McClatchy Co.”Support for press freedom is needed now more than ever”, said USA TODAY President and Publisher Larry Kramer. “This is a critical time as the world has become more dangerous for reporters. In 2015 alone, 13 journalists have been killed and 164 imprisoned ; we are proud to support this campaign to raise awareness around this important cause.”Syria, world’s most dangerous country for journalistsReporters Without Borders Secretary General Christophe Deloire highlights that “Syria is the world’s most dangerous country for journalists since the start of the uprising in March 2011, with hundreds of journalists and citizen-journalists arrested, kidnapped or killed by the various parties involved in the conflict. The local journalists have especially paid a high price in their fight for freedom of information.”Syria is ranked 177th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index.Reporters Without Borders has been working for decades all over the world with the families, employers and governments of journalists held hostage and missing to provide on-the-ground information and contacts, media strategy advice, platforms for the support commitees and any logistic assistance needed according to each specific case.If your media is interested in joining the campaign and for media inquiry, please contact: Delphine Halgand – US Director – [email protected] support the #FreeAustinTice cause and find out more information on how you can help, please visit———————-Reporters Without Borders is the largest press freedom organization in the world with almost 30 years of experience.

Reporters Without Borders was represented in court by Alirio Uribe of the José Alvear Restrepo lawyer’s collective. News RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia to go further Receive email alertscenter_img Reporters Without Borders welcomed the verdict of a Colombian court that sentenced paramilitary leader Carlos Castaño to 38 years in prison in absentia for the August 1999 murder of journalist and humorist Jaime Garzón.Two other men, Juan Pablo Ortiz and Edilberto Antonio Sierra, were acquitted of carrying out the murder for lack of evidence.Castaño is leader of the extreme-right United Self-defense Forces of Colombia (AUC) paramilitary.The international press freedom organisation, which was a civil party to the case, welcomed the verdict, which it said reflected the main conclusions of its own investigation. Garzón, who worked for Radionet and TV channel Caracol Televisión, was gunned down in Bogota by two men on a motorbike on 13 August 1999. Giving his verdicts on 10 March 2004, the judge Julio Roberto Ballén Silva ordered the opening of an investigation for “false testimony” against prosecution witnesses Maria Amparo Arroyave Mantilla, Wilson Javier Llano Caballero and Maribel Jiménez Montoya.The three had lied in giving evidence against the accused Ortiz and Sierra “with the aim of sidetracking the investigation so that the real killers went unpunished,” he said.These witnesses had all been produced by the Department for Administrative Security (DAS), an intelligence service under direct authority of the president.The judge also ordered an investigation into the implication of ten DAS officials, five of them high-ranking and including the former DAS head for Antioquia region and the current national deputy director. He further ordered a reopening of the Garzón murder inquiry to hunt the real killers and any others who may have ordered it.”Our organisation will closely follow the investigation ordered by the judge until the full facts are uncovered about Jaime Garzón’s death,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of the international press freedom organisation.”It is crucial that all those responsible, those who carried out the murder and those who ordered it, should be identified and caught. We welcome the verdict but it does not bring an end to impunity in this case,” he said.”The responsibility of the DAS in supplying false witnesses who sidetracked the investigation away from the real perpetrators of the crime should be clearly established and if confirmed the implicated officials punished, ” said the organisation.Reporters Without Borders also called for protection for all those linked to the investigation, suspects, lawyers and investigators. The José Alvear Restrepo lawyers collective says that several people were killed during the investigation and it reported intimidation against one of its staff working on the case, Claudia Julieta Duque.Reporters Without Borders also strongly opposed any amnesty for Castaño in the framework of peace negotiations with the government. “In Colombia, where an average of four journalists are killed each year, impunity is the major enemy of press freedom,” it said.Examining magistrate Eduardo Meza, concluded on 2 January 2002 that the murder was ordered by Castaño and carried out by Juan Pablo Ortiz Agudelo, known as “El Bochas”, who fired the fatal shots and Edilberto Antonio Sierra Ayala, or “Toño”, the driver of the motorbike. The two were arrested respectively in January 2000 and September 2001. An arrest warrant was issued against Castaño in June 2000.He considered the motive for the murder to be the involvement of Garzón in negotiations for the release of hostages held by the FARC and that Castaño believed the journalist had “played into the hands of the guerrillas” and had been paid for his services.Some reports published in the press however spoke of investigators ruling out evidence that implicated members of the military.In a statement released on 9 December 2003, Reporters Without Borders said, “We are extremely concerned at the possibility of a miscarriage of justice in this case as several of the testimonies used by the prosecution against the two defendants are not credible,” the organisation said. It added that it was particularly concerned about the fact that the prosecutor’s office and the DAS were sticking to a version of events that has been largely refuted in the course of the preceding hearings.

The report concluded that the underlying drivers of loss severity are the same across Agency and non-Agency loans based on the discovery that loss severities are comparable when loan attributes are controlled.Freddie Mac first added loan loss data to its single-family residential loan-level historical dataset in November 2014 in order to increase transparency to the market, anticipating an actual credit loss offering in 2015. The dataset includes loan-level loss information such as expenses and recoveries as well as credit performance data for 30-year fixed-rate single-family mortgages.”It is important for investors to have this expanded view of credit risk, especially as we continue to grow and evolve our credit risk offerings,” said Kevin Palmer, VP of single-family strategic credit costing and structuring for Freddie Mac, at the time the loan-loss data was added in November. “Having data openly available in the marketplace allows us to expand the amount of risk transferred to private investors.”Freddie Mac will be releasing historical performance data with the goal in mind of switching to an actual framework. According to Fitch, Freddie Mac’s risk sharing transactions to date have passed losses from defaulted loans onto investors using a pre-determined loan loss severity schedule.The Fitch report also found that observed agency severities generally compare with the fixed severity schedules used for 60 to 80 percent loan-to-value risk-sharing transactions – and that those observed agency severities are generally lower than the fixed levels for 81 to 95 percent loan-to-value transactions. Loss severities in an actual loss transaction may differ from aggregate historical data based on the attributes of the loans, such as the particular credit, leverage, and mortgage insurance profile of each loan pool that will drive credit enhancement requirements.A survey released earlier this week by the Collingwood Group and the Five Star Institute as part of the March 2015 Mortgage Industry Outlook Report found that 85 percent of mortgage industry professionals polled said they would like to see Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac involved in more risk-sharing transactions. Such transactions allow private market participants to invest in the credit performance of the GSEs’ book of business, thus keeping the private securitization market involved and ultimately limiting taxpayer risk while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac remain under conservatorship of the FHFA.The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and Previous: Servicers Completed Mortgage Solutions for 1.88 Million Homeowners in 2014, Report Shows Next: Market Conditions Mixed in Fed’s Latest Beige Book The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more
