WHAT THE OTHER PAPERS SAY THIS MORNING

first_imgTuesday 26 October 2010 8:45 pm whatsapp KCS-content WHAT THE OTHER PAPERS SAY THIS MORNING Tags: NULLcenter_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp FINANCIAL TIMESCHINA AND US CLOSER ON TRADE TARGETSChina and the US have the basis for an agreement at the summit of the Group of 20 leading nations next month on setting targets to cut trade imbalances, according to an adviser to the Chinese central bank. Li Daokui, a member of the central bank’s monetary policy committee and professor at Tsinghua University, said on Tuesday there had been “good progress” at the weekend meeting of G20 finance ministers in South Korea which had moved debate from the “surface issue” of nominal exchange rates to “talking about the substance of rebalancing world trade”.UBS WANTS WATCHDOG TO WAIVE $1M CAP ON CASH BONUSESUBS, one of the banks hardest hit by the financial crisis, is lobbying Swiss regulators to scrap a $1m cap on cash bonuses paid to its top bankers, amid complaints it has strained some executives’ personal finances. The Swiss banking group wants to pay out more cash to top earners, most of whom work in London, New York, and other places with relatively high rates of personal income tax, say people familiar with the situation. Under the bank’s existing pay structure agreed last year with Finma, Switzerland’s financial regulator, the cash component of bonuses is limited to $1m, with the remainder paid out in deferred cash and share awards that vest over several years. SCOPE OF FED’S QE2 COMES UNDER SCRUTINYThe US Federal Reserve’s meeting next week is likely to result in a new dollop of quantitative easing – nicknamed QE2 – but how many assets it should ultimately buy remains a hot topic for debate within the Fed.Markets think the Fed initially will announce $500bn in asset purchases.THE TIMESBUFFETT, 80, BETS ON A RISING STAR LESS THAN HALF HIS AGEWarren Buffett’s latest hot pick could be one of his most daring gambles yet.

At 39, Mr Combs could stay at Berkshire for decades.RURAL DISABLED GET MOBILEM-Pesa has provided a spur for economic growth in Tanzania, but the mobile money transfer service is also being harnessed to help to save lives.

It now operates more than 60 restaurants in the UK and almost 40 overseas, including in Australia and the US.The group’s eateries in London have been known to turn over 12 sittings a day.Founded in 1992 in London by entrepreneur Alan Yau, the firm made more than £15m in pre-tax profits in the year to April 2010.Yau sold out to Graphite Capital and entrepreneur Rory McCarthy in 1998, before Lion bought a majority stake from Graphite for £103m in 2005.

With sweeping views of the Cascades, Lake Union and just blocks from the exciting and eclectic Fremont district, this project consists of seven private town homes with shared underground parking in a cornerstone location.  Sustainable building practices were employed throughout the design process and the project is seeking LEED Platinum certification status. Johnston Architects decided that in order to achieve the LEED rating for this project it was imperative to embed sustainable principles into the process from the get-go encompassing both the natural and urban environments while utilizing unique green practices.Save this picture!Courtesy of Johnston ArchitectsRecommended ProductsTiles / Mosaic / GresiteApavisaTiles – Iconic BeigePorcelain StonewareGrespaniaWood-Look Porcelain tiles – FustaSkylightsVELUX CommercialModular Skylights – Atrium Longlight / RidgelightThe town homes are carefully arranged in a U-shape, which provides for a central garden courtyard/community open space. This orientation allows for good southern exposure, vital indoor/outdoor connections, and also provides access to and from the garage below. A screen wall blanketed in vegetation wraps the community yielding both visual and acoustic privacy, rarities in an urban environment. The project’s innovative design, resourceful features and simplistic beauty truly exemplify a design shaped for the culture of Seattle.Save this picture!Courtesy of Johnston ArchitectsThe project is designed with a major emphasis on water efficiency and storm water recycling. Rainwater is collected from the rooftop and courtyard areas and conveyed to a large cistern in the garage, where it is filtered and then re-used on an as-needed basis. This building is projected to save over 50% of the energy used in a standard Washington code-based building of the same size. The project is targeting a 50% reduction over IECC (International Energy Conservation Code) as well as potable water use reduction targeted at over 100,000 gallons per year for the project relative to a standard code-based construction. The project also includes the use of FSC certified wood and low-VOC emitting, non-toxic materials and finishes. Significant effort has been made to substantially reduce the use of products containing PVC and urea formaldehyde.Save this picture!Courtesy of Johnston ArchitectsThe interior floor plan incorporates design principles to encourage daylighting, expansive view corridors, natural ventilation patterns, flexible space creation and more to provide the resident with a more usable and better experienced interior environment. The main floor interior spaces include earth-tone concrete floors, and the painted trim at the floor and the windows makes a contemporary statement while the detailing at the cabinetry, built-in bookshelves, stairs and railings reflect the palette for this project.Save this picture!Courtesy of Johnston ArchitectsThe upper floor spaces include sustainable wood floors, slatted wood ceiling trim elements in corridors and tiling in the bathroom to accentuate character. These design and material decisions reflect the understated yet refined palette for this project while allowing the unit owners to individualize their homes to their own tastes and styles.Save this picture!bridge wayProject gallerySee allShow lessCubby House / Edwards MooreArticlesRussian Orthodox Church and Cultural Center / FREAK freearchitectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Seattle, Washington, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

#Watch Limerick company to develop tidal energy device

first_imgNewsEnvironment#Watch Limerick company to develop tidal energy deviceBy Editor – October 22, 2017 2982 GKinetic Energy chief executive Vincent McCormack.A LIMERICK tidal energy company is to develop its first commercial device after the successful completion of its prototype testing programme.Newcastle West-based GKinetic Energy will develop its first 25kW commercial device after its 8kW unit generated outputs above international industry standards. The device will be capable of generating enough electricity to power up to 15 homes.Horizon 2020 grant funding of €2.7million has been received through Gkinetic’s manufacturing partner DesignPro Ltd, which is based in Rathkeale, to commercialise 25kW and 60kW devices using its unique technology.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Twitter Previous article€20 million funding plan for Limerick Institute of TechnologyNext articleLimerick historic structures to be listed Editor WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Facebook TAGSGKinetic Energygreen energylimerickLimerick Docksmarine test tankNewcastle WestRathkealeTechnologyTidal energyVincent McCormack WhatsApp Print The GKinetic device, which will replace dirty fuels like diesel, operates in rivers and its differentiator is that its turbines – placed at either side of a vertical cylinder – exploit the natural phenomena that occurs when water accelerates around an obstacle. Research shows that the power available through this acceleration is twice that of natural water flow.The compact design and size of the GKinetic device also means that it is easily deployed in rivers, operating in depths as shallow as 2m and widths of 3m. This means remote, off-grid communities in locations such as Canada, Siberia, Polynesia and a host of African, and South American nations, now having the option of this ground-breaking, green solution for their energy requirements.Its 8kW prototype has been successfully tested at the Shannon Foynes Port Company (SFPC) operated Limerick Docks for the past year. Tests at the Limerick docks, which doubles as hugely successful commercial port and Ireland’s largest marine test tank, have supported the initial results. The 25kW device will also be tested at Limerick Docks prior to being deployed at certified river or estuary test sites.Chief executive Vincent McCormack said that they identified deployment costs as one of the key problems within the industry. “We came up with a floating device that accelerates the flow into the turbines so we are actually getting double the speed of the water and, therefore, greater power. We are now going to develop our first commercial unit but that will require rigorous testing over two years and once we’re beyond that we expect to be into full production of 25kW machines in 2020. “We are fully funded out for that period to bring the design to commercialisation,” he added.
