Northern Rock in £232m annual loss

first_imgWednesday 9 March 2011 4:12 am Northern Rock in £232m annual loss Northern Rock, the retail bank formed from the ashes of the lender that almost collapsed in the financial crisis, said it is preparing to return to the private sector after posting a £232m annual loss.State-owned Northern Rock , which manages new mortgages and savings, said the underlying loss for 2010, its first annual set of results, were in line with its expectations after a year of restructuring.The UK government, keen to raise cash to cut the country’s deficit, wants to return the Northern Rock Plc business to the private sector. It was nationalised three years ago after being hit by the first run on a British bank for over a century. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ John Dunne center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Virtual attraction

first_img Virtual attraction Alberto García-Baquero Vega is the chief technology officer at Golden Race, a creator and global provider of virtual sports and betting solutionsThe engagement opportunities presented by live rendering will make it an indispensable tool if virtual or augmented reality sports betting is to continue growing in the industry, according to Golden Race’s chief technology officer, Alberto García-Baquero Vega.Live rendering – as opposed to pre-rendered content – not only means that operators do not have to store additional data to keep virtual products fresh, but also means that consumers will never face the same visual experience twice.For providers such as Golden Race, the technology is an integral part of its offering to operators.However, as García-Baquero explains, such technology is not always seen as the answer by clients or indeed the company itself.“Live rendering is a tool that should be applied if it makes your product better, but with some products it just is not possible to apply it,” García-Baquero says.“From the perspective of the operators, they just want to have the right products that provide a good experience for the player and I don’t think they necessarily favour live rendering currently. However, there are benefits. It’s not just about the visuals; it’s the overall experience and dynamics, which are really different in comparison with live sport.“I don’t think live rendering is the only approach, and we don’t go straight to it for every individual product. We always ask what will be the best approach and, for example, we have a different approach for retail and the online or mobile experience.“However, live rendering does provide differentiation and a flexibility in the product format.” Conservative approachGarcía-Baquero admits that the approach to content creation and motion capture in the industry has been “quite conservative” to date and “limited to small areas of capture, small amounts of actors and a huge amount of manual processing”.In the coming years, though, he believes that the process will evolve.“Content acquisition and motion capture is an important area to optimise for each individual project,” García-Baquero says. “We are working with studios and hardware providers to create unique solutions that satisfy requirements for each of our products.“But new techniques for content creation will enable a much bigger leap in quality than rendering approached.“I am not sure about how successful virtual reality or augmented reality products will be in the future, but for sure they will only be successful with live rendering, with many more interaction possibilities than we are used to with established virtual sports up to now.”García-Baquero describes the pre-rendered approach as applying “brute force”, with very clear drawbacks.He adds: “With live rendering it enables you to create any market you want and establish associations with events that are not possible unless you force it through at a very high cost.”García-Baquero argues that brute force requires massive storage and is inflexible due to the lack of customisation for audiences. This can result in long frequency updates and outdated products, he adds.Alternatively, pre-rendered content can guarantee high-quality visuals. However, the low levels of customisation and high costs can make it a challenging proposition.Costs and storage capacities are also key considerations for operators and brands in emerging markets such as Africa, for example, where Golden Race has found increasing levels of appetite for live rendering.Multiple matches in “skin formats” with customisable teams, logos and other features, can be presented simultaneously via a box, whereas the alternative approach through a satellite signal would not be realistically achievable. ChallengesHowever, there are also challenges for live rendering integration that cannot be overlooked.“If you are running inexpensive hardware, then you need to do a lot of optimisation and fine-tuning,” he says. “With live rendering, it is a platform rather than a product, so there are continuous updates.“It helps if you have a skilled team that is able to maximise the performance. Our team members include people who have worked on special effects in movies, as well as experienced game developers and experts in real-time graphics.”García-Baquero believes that the quality of live rendering technology will only improve in the future, although some operators will still need to be convinced.“I don’t think anybody will even think of offline rendering in the future,” he says. “Virtual is a category by itself and its huge potential is a reality that many operators will have to face in the coming years.“It will be amazing to witness the evolution of live rendering, as well as virtual and augmented reality, as it will bring significant opportunities for betting shops as well as online and mobile platforms.“Some established operators need to realise how big virtual sports can be. The traditional view with sports is to provide a content feed only – but I think that is a big mistake, and a broader solution is required.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Online Gambling 2nd September 2019 | By Josephine Watson Topics: Tech & innovationcenter_img Alberto García-Baquero Vega is the chief technology officer at Golden Race, a creator and global provider of virtual sports and betting solutions Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tech & innovationlast_img read more

The IPL’s best teams always have world-class all-rounders, and KKR have the cream of the crop.Even Pat Cummins, who is guaranteed to play almost all games for KKR, is handy with the bat, while Kamlesh Nagarkoti’s all-round skills have garnered praise from experts.Apart from Narine and Russell, Dinesh Karthik can also call upon Chris Green, who has captained the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the CPL. The Australian off-spinner might not get games early on in IPL 2020, but he is certainly a quality T20 player.Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2020: Unmatched depth in overseas players Pat Cummins, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Chris Green, Eoin Morgan, Tom Banton and Lockie Ferguson – KKR have perhaps the best overseas contingent in IPL 2020.The team, which is yet to announce a replacement for Harry Gurney, will see healthy competition for the 4 overseas slots in the XI, although 3 are all but finalised in the lead-up to the tournament. KKR’s foreign players are also highly experienced, with Eoin Morgan also England’s captain in the white-ball formats.KKR’s depth in overseas players will ensure that they can give the Indian players, who are arguably lesser in quality, extended runs of games.IPL 2020 Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Weaknesses Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2020: Indian batting contingent looks thinKeeping aside the quality of Indian players, KKR still have to fill the remaining spots with Indian players, and they are found wanting in the batting department.Apart from captain Dinesh Karthik, only Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana have some degree of IPL experience. The releases of Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa have left their batting lineup devoid of experience and aggression.Rinku Singh, Siddhesh Lad, Rahul Tripathi and Nikhil Naik are the only other options, and most of them haven’t had sufficient IPL experience. Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2020: Lack of depth in the spin departmentKKR have always been a team that has relied on quality spinners, often fielding a three-pronged spin attack consisting of Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla and Kuldeep Yadav at the Eden Gardens.Chawla is now part of the Chennai Super Kings, and KKR chose to replace him with Tamil Nadu mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy, who has bowled only three overs in the IPL so far. Chris Green is another option, but he might not make the playing XI in the presence of other quality options.M Siddharth is the only other Indian tweaker at KKR’s disposal, and he is uncapped at the IPL level. Even Kuldeep, who is expected to be one of the leaders of the spin attack, picked up only 4 wickets in 9 IPL games last season, at an economy rate of 8.66.IPL 2020 Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Full Schedule match 826-SepKolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers HyderabadSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi07:30 PM 201814860 201714860 CricketIndian premier leagueIndian premier league 2020 match 2107-OctKolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super KingsSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi07:30 PM IPL 2021 New updates: new Schedule, new dates, team, venue, live, squad, foreign players’ availability all you need to know 200814671 match 4224-OctKolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi CapitalsSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi03:30 PM Cricket IPL 2021 Phase 2: Aaron Finch slams RCB’s Maxwell and DC’s Stoinis for missing WI & BD tour, says IPL return will be ‘hard… Cricket IPL 2021: Bad news for IPL, Cricket Australia planning Tri-Series at the time of IPL 2021 Phase 2 match 2812-OctRoyal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight RidersSharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah07:30 PM Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter match 3921-OctKolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers BangaloreSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi07:30 PM match 4626-OctKolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI PunjabSharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah07:30 PM IPL Dates & Schedule: For sake of longer window for IPL, BCCI agrees to 2 more ICC events in next cycle: Report match 3518-OctSunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight RidersSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi03:30 PM match 4929-OctChennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight RidersDubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai07:30 PM IPL 2021 & T20 World Cup: BCCI top officials to meet in Mumbai this week for final call on T20 World Cup & dates… Cricket The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) teams Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Key Players, Captain, Strengths, Weaknesses, IPL Records, Full Schedule, Statistics, LIVE Streaming All you need to know about KKR 2020IPL 2020 : Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)The Kolkata Knight Riders are a franchise cricket team representing the city of Kolkata in the Indian Premier League.

London Sevens highlights of the final between Australia and South Africa

first_imgWednesday May 26, 2010 London Sevens highlights of the final between Australia and South Africa On Monday I posted a video from the London Sevens that was made by the IRB featuring seven of the best tries from the tournament. Today weve got highlights of the final that Australia won when they beat South Africa 19-14.While Sevens clearly isnt everyones cup of tea, based on some of the comments on here sometimes, theres a large majority out there who see the value in what it can do for both a players development, and of course enjoy the fun side of things with tries aplenty and a great party atmosphere in the crowd.The London Sevens brought both those elements as there were thousands who attended Twickenham over the course of the weekend, many of which were dressed in fancy-dress.On the field though, it was war as South Africa, who beat hosts England in the quarter-finals, looked to triumph in the finals after what has been an indifferent year for them. They beat Samoa in the semis, after Australia themselves had beaten Argentina.As youll see here, the final went back and forth with it coming right down to the last minute, when an incredible try saving tackle was made by Australian captain James Stannard on Cecil Afrika.Samoa are currently series leaders, with New Zealand not far behind. Itll all come down to the final leg in Edinburgh next weekend. If youre able to, make sure you get out there to support not only your team, but some fantastic rugby and a great party.

Nestled on a deep wooded site, this modern house is designed for a young family to create open, flexible spaces for living and playing that allow the indoor and outdoor spaces to merge. Entering the site between mature Spruce and White Pine trees, the L – shaped plan creates a car court and play area under a landmark Tamarack tree. Save this picture!© ALTUS Architecture + DesignThe landscape was sculpted to create a series of flat activity spaces extending the house into the site from the main and lower levels. This site design included a ‘land pier’ with a terrace off the kitchen, shaping the transition between the main and lower level grade. The flat play spaces are maintained grass while the land pier and perimeter areas are a low maintenance fescue grass for natural sustainability.Save this picture!© ALTUS Architecture + DesignThe client sought an industrial modern architecture to reflect their European heritage as a compliment of contrast to the natural landscape. The non-maintenance exterior is composed of folded planes of black concrete block as a sculptural base, which is expressed inside the house. The upper level contains the bedroom wing and a play space over the garage. These two forms rest on the black base as ochre and gray fiber cement panels. The aluminum windows create expansive views on the main level and draw in natural light through clerestory glass on the upper level. Dark Slate and Red Birch floors and custom Birch cabinetry extend the materials palette on the interior. The quality of space and materiality was accomplished for a modest $135 per square foot, including landscape.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Towers of LondonArticlesBotswana Innovation Hub / SHoP ArchitectsArticles Share 2008 Minnetonka Residence / ALTUS Architecture + DesignSave this projectSaveMinnetonka Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design CopyAbout this officeALTUS Architecture + DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesMinnetonkaUnited StatesPublished on June 22, 2010Cite: “Minnetonka Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design” 22 Jun 2010.

The BHF partnership allows us to do this, and use our position to improve the lives of others. It has also been rewarding for our 540 members of staff and students who are now trained in CPR and take those skills back to their communities where they could just save lives. We are proud to have helped raise such a large amount in stock donations to aid this vital research.”Unite Students provides a home for around 50,000 students, in more than 140 properties, across 24 university cities in England and Scotland.

Lenin’s ‘Imperialism’ and the struggle vs the 1%

first_imgLamont Lilly & Monica Moorehead lead “What is a revolutionary” discussion on March 29.WW photo: Durham WWP branchIn commemoration of Lenin’s death 90 years ago. Excerpted from a talk given at the March 29, 2014, “Hard Times are Fighting Times” conference in Durham, N.C.Vladimir Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik Party, which led the first successful socialist revolution in modern history. Out of this revolution was born the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, with over 100 nationalities, many of whom had their own republics. Lenin was a continuer of the teachings of Karl Marx.Lenin described imperialism as the highest stage of capitalism, an economic system, first and foremost, with inherent governing laws. The developed capitalist countries have been driven to expand their productive forces beyond their own borders and plunder the less developed countries in order to make profits or die.Capitalism in its earlier stage of development was based on competition, but capitalism in its highest stage is based on monopoly capitalism — that is, larger transnationals and banks gobbling up their weaker competitors. The five components of imperialism are (1) the concentration of production and capital; (2) the merging of bank capital with industrial capital, or “finance capital,” which creates a financial oligarchy; (3) the dominance of the export of capital as distinguished from the export of commodities; (4) the formation of international monopolist capitalist associations which share the world among themselves, i.e., the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization; and (5) the territorial division of the whole world among the biggest capitalist powers.Lenin wrote “Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism” during World War I because this “great war” was really an interimperialist war; it was a war carried out in its most brutal form by the then European, U.S. and Japanese imperialists among themselves over how to redivide the previously enslaved colonial peoples in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and the Middle East.During the colonial era, whole nations of people had been forced under the whip and gun to be superexploited in order to enrich the imperialist countries to build up their economies and destroy the oppressed ones with superexploitation of labor, resources and lands. This was “territorial division of the whole world among the biggest capitalist powers” in Lenin’s “Imperialism.”The war prompted Lenin to call for “revolutionary defeatism” — that is, for socialists and communists based in the imperialist countries to unite in calling for the defeat of their own governments, to declare that “the enemy is at home” and to turn their guns around against their own ruling class.While calling for revolution against the imperialist governments, Lenin also called for the right to self-determination for these oppressed countries, which had historically been denied the right to develop their economies based on capitalist laws of production.Crises in Venezuela, UkraineWithout a clear understanding of what imperialism is as a worldwide economic system first and foremost, the chances of there being consistent anti-imperialism or internationalism is threatened.In Venezuela, the Bolivarian Revolution was launched with the presidency of the late Hugo Chávez when he became president in 1999. The present government of Nicolás Maduro is continuing the Bolivarian revolutionary process and aspires to move in the direction of socialism. What you have in Venezuela is a long lasting dual power situation — an anti-imperialist, pro-socialist government with mass support especially from the poor versus the capitalist oligarchy class which still has a stronghold in the private economy and the media and is backed by the White House, the CIA, the Pentagon and Wall Street and is deeply connected to U.S. imperialism.Ukraine is a more complex situation because of its relationship to Russia. It became an independent capitalist country as a product of a capitalist counterrevolution in 1991 that broke up not only the Soviet Union but earlier in 1989 took over Eastern Europe. Our party characterized this as a historic setback for the workers and oppressed worldwide and the bourgeoisie declared it as a victory. It has been the number one mission of U.S. imperialism to recolonize the world into a U.S. empire since the collapse of the Soviet Union.This is the geopolitical context that defines this development — that being the semifascist and fascist elements who have violently ousted the legally elected government in Ukraine with the backing of the U.S. and NATO. In the process, they have outed their fascistic nature by brazenly raising the flags of the U.S. Confederacy and the Nazis. This is an attempt by the U.S. and NATO to expand more and more towards the east and further encircle Russia. It should be made clear that the Putin government is a capitalist one backed by a Russian capitalist class of billionaires and millionaires. But it is not close to being an imperialist country like the U.S. or its European allies. Russia doesn’t have military bases in over 150 countries like the U.S., not to mention the hundreds inside the U.S. in order to protect the profits of the 1%. A victory for Washington would strengthen world imperialism and be a great danger to the workers and oppressed of the world.This current global economic crisis indicates that capitalism is at a dead end. It can no longer expand its production like during its earlier stages of development. It is in a desperate, adventurous mode which means that wars and political crises — as what is going on in Venezuela and Ukraine — can break out at any time and any place. Plus at home the masses are feeling this deepening crisis of imperialism with racism, low wages, attacks on pensions, housing, education and health care; there is crumbling infrastructure and much more but there are also signs of resistance and fightback.This is along the same lines that Lenin raised on a much higher level: the revolutionary defeatism of one’s own government. Our movements have a strategic role to play in the South and throughout the U.S. to show our solidarity with the rest of the world by building anti-imperialist fronts, building pro-socialist fronts that will weaken imperialism at home, which will strengthen the anti-imperialist struggle abroad.Monica Moorehead is a member of WWP’s Secretariat and editor of the book, “Marxism, Reparations and the Black Freedom Struggle.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
