European Union ministers reject MEPs’ plan for 20-week paid maternity leave

first_imgTuesday 7 December 2010 8:12 pm Tags: NULL KCS-content whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ THE European Union has rebuffed a bid by members of the European parliament to extend paid maternity leave.The Council of Ministers – the EU organisation representing member states’ governments – voiced concern about the potential cost impact on employers of the proposals to extend leave on full pay to 20 weeks, which the European Parliament approved in October. The European Commission has proposed to extend minimum maternity leave in the EU to 18 weeks from 14 weeks to improve work-life balance. No deal is expected before next year.The UK, France and Germany opposed the 20-week plan on the grounds that it could result in billions more in business and healthcare costs.The current holder of the revolving EU presidency, Belgium, said most member states were in favour of more talks about the Commission’s original draft directive for an extension to 18 weeks.The council also expressed concern about including paternity leave in the directive, which it said was aimed at improving health and safety for pregnant women and workers who had recently given birth.Women in the UK are currently entitled to 12 months’ maternity leave, with the first six weeks on 90 per cent pay followed by 33 weeks on just under £125 a week. whatsapp Read This NextFresh Fruit Sushi: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCreamy Pumpkin Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofA Once in 17 Years Cicada Event in Princeton, New JerseyFamily Proof European Union ministers reject MEPs’ plan for 20-week paid maternity leave last_img read more

As Metro Bank (LSE: MTRO) became the first new high street bank to launch in the UK in 150 years, it quickly became clear something new, exciting and perhaps unusual was happening in the world of UK retail banking.Metro Bank, Atom Bank, Starling Bank and Monzo Bank are a few of the challenger banks looking to shake up the UK banking industry, offering consumers a digital, technology-led alternative approach to banking.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Inception and initial successesMetro Bank is the brainchild of Vernon Hill and Anthony Thomson, and opened the first of its approximately 70 high street branches in July 2010 in Holborn, central London. Metro Bank dubbed this its flagship branch, almost akin to a retail giant unveiling its crowning jewel amongst a plethora of smaller stores.Metro Bank has adopted a customer-centric approach, with the style, design and accessibility of branches (some seven days a week, 12 hours a day) akin to that of a shopping experience. This modern-day outlook seemed to work: in 2019 the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) ranked Metro Bank second amongst UK lenders for customer satisfaction.Problems, scandals and decreasing consumer confidenceIn 2012 Metro Bank raised $200 million in funding from a number of sources. However, in 2013 a reported loss of £8.8 million in the first quarter of 2013 meant Metro Bank’s pre-tax losses had exceeded £100 million in less than three years since its launch, but this was played down as planned losses due to aggressive growth plans.Fast forward to 2019 and a reporting error was uncovered, which sent shares plummeting. In simpler terms, Metro Bank wrongly classified the risk rating of some of its loans, underestimating the amount of capital necessary to underpin them. The necessary adjustments to account for the error laid bare to investors that the bank was exposed to riskier loans than was previously thought.On January 23rd 2019 Metro Bank’s shares plummeted 40%. This represented the biggest single day decline in a bank’s stock since the Royal Bank of Scotland bailout during the financial crisis.A month on from the first scandal and Metro Bank was the target of a cyber attack targeted at mobile network operators. Metro Bank, among others, was affected and it compounded further misery to the bank who was still reeling from the accounting issue and plummeting share prices.What next for Metro Bank?At time of publication, founder and chairman Vernon Hill has left the company, and has been swiftly followed by the CEO Craig Donaldson. In total the company has had 90% wiped off its stock market value after the tough year. Many private investment firms have passed on the opportunity to take over the troubled bank, with reluctance due to a potentially costly branch network as well as other well-documented issues.With an interim chairman in place, declining customer confidence coupled with millions in customer withdrawals, one must ponder the long-term viability of such a stock. It has been reported Metro Bank does not foresee any profits until 2021. The rehabilitation process is underway, with the banking community watching intently. However, I would not have confidence in share prices increasing much over the coming months.

Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones describió el Ocupar Wall Street como un movimiento que él habría querido que la iglesia de la Trinidad hubiera tenido el “valor” y la “perspicacia” de originar.“Es mucho de lo que somos… no sólo [la iglesia de] la Trinidad de Wall Street, toda la empresa espiritual”, dijo Bozzuti-Jones durante la transmisión.Parafraseando al teólogo jesuita Jon Sobrino, la auténtica prueba no es tanto acerca de si una persona cree en Dios o no, sino más bien si cree en idolatría, dijo. Para Sobrino, la voluntad humana tendía a adorar las cosas erróneas.“¿Cómo enseñarle al mundo que es mejor dar que recibir?”, preguntó Bozzuti-Jones.Anunciada en parte como conferencia, en parte como renovación espiritual y en parte como una concentración, el “Ocupar: asamblea del 1 de mayo” incluyó breves pláticas por pensadores religiosos y seculares que hablaron acerca de problemas morales, políticos y de justicia social y reconciliación que confronta el movimiento Ocupar.El evento también incluyo música popular interpretada por el dúo Peader & Pio.Charles B. Strozier, profesor del Colegio Universitario de Derecho Penal John Jay, fue el maestro de ceremonias del evento. Además de Bozutti-Jones, entre los oradores se contaron el Rdo. James Forbes, ministro emérito de la iglesia Riverside de Nueva York; el Dr. Robert Jay Lifton, autor y psiquiatra de la Escuela de Medicina de Harvard; Blanche Wiesen Cook, también profesora del Colegio Universitario de Derecho Penal John Jay; Diego Ibáñez y Bryan K. Parsons del movimiento Ocupar Wall Street; Joyce Carol Oates, escritora y profesora de la Universidad de Princeton; el Rdo. James H. Cooper, rector de la iglesia de la Trinidad en Wall Street; la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori y James W. Jones, profesor de la Universidad de Rutgers.El Día 1 de mayo, o Día Internacional de los Trabajadores, es una celebración de movimientos obreros e izquierdistas que tiene sus raíces en la masacre de Haymarket, Chicago, en 1886, cuando, luego de haber sido alcanzados por una bomba, la policía disolvió una huelga general de trabajadores que abogaban por una jornada laboral de ocho horas. La fecha se convirtió en una efeméride reconocida internacionalmente en 1890.El 1 de mayo, Ocupar Wall Street convocó a una huelga general -no trabajo, no escuela, no tiendas- para conmemorar el Día del Trabajo e inyectar nueva vida al movimiento que provocó protestas en todo el país contra la injusticia económica en septiembre de 2011. De la noche a la mañana, barricadas humanas subieron a lo largo de Broadway en el Bajo Manhattan y a lo largo de Wall Street e inmediatamente se apostaron frente al edificio de la Bolsa de Nueva York en la esquina de las calles Wall y Broad, a una cuadra de la iglesia de la Trinidad. Los eventos de Ocupar para el 1 de mayo se planearon para todo el país.En su página web, la iglesia de la Trinidad describe Ocupar como “…tal vez uno de los movimientos más importantes desde los movimientos pro derechos civiles y antibélicos de los años cincuenta y sesenta”.La asamblea de la Trinidad, programada originalmente como un evento público, se cambió a una transmisión en directo vía Internet cuando, según un comunicado en el calendario de la Trinidad, la alcaldía de Nueva York alertó que probablemente habría grandes multitudes y que se producirían interrupciones en el transporte público en el Bajo Manhattan el martes por la tarde. Los partidarios de Ocupar, entre ellos algunos clérigos episcopales que participan activamente en el movimiento interreligioso OcupyFaith NYC, se disponían a desfilar “en solidaridad” desde Union Square hasta el parque Zuccotti a las 5:30 P.M. hora del Este.Dada la situación de la iglesia de la Trinidad, en la intersección de Broadway con Wall Street, dos cuadras al sur del parque Zuccotti, espacio de propiedad privada donde los ocupas acamparon durante dos meses el otoño pasado, la iglesia ha sido parte de la historia de Ocupar desde el comienzo, a veces abriendo sus puertas a los miembros del movimiento y sus partidarios.Durante su plática, Cooper reconoció algunos de los tensos momentos vividos a lo largo del camino, que incluyeron huelgas de hambre y arrestos. En medio de todo eso, la Trinidad y los partidarios de Ocupar pudieron, no obstante, reunirse para conversar, dijo Cooper, ya fuese de manera informal, conversaciones tarde en la noche en el banco de un parque, o durante un oficio el domingo por la mañana.Luego de que los ocupantes fueran desalojados del parque el 15 de noviembre de 2011, la iglesia de la Trinidad fue objeto de críticas de los partidarios del movimiento -entre ellos algunos clérigos episcopales- por no haberles cedido una espacio propiedad de la iglesia, adyacente a la Duarte Square, un parque de la ciudad situado en las calles Canal, Grand y la Ave. De las Américas. La disputa sobre el acceso a la propiedad de la Trinidad, que Ocupar quería usar como base desde la cual capear los meses de invierno, culminó con una huelga de hambre llevada a cabo por tres o cuatro personas asociadas con el movimiento y el arresto de clérigos episcopales, entre ellos el obispo jubilado George E. Packard, cuando saltaron la cerca durante una manifestación, el 17 de diciembre de 2011, para conmemorar los tres meses de que surgiera el movimiento.Uno de los que estaba en huelga de hambre, el boliviano Diego Ibáñez -que grabó sus propios comentarios en una grabadora digital debido, según dijo, a problemas de confianza habidos en el pasado con la iglesia de la Trinidad- habló de la belleza de participar en algo donde “puedas dejar de ser ante algo más grande que tú”.Refiriéndose al alto número de personas encarceladas, especialmente personas de color, culpó a las generaciones anteriores por dejar a Estados Unidos, de cierta manera, peor de lo que nunca ha estado antes.Para él, agregó, [el movimiento] Ocupar le dio a la gente la posibilidad de participar en el cambio social de manera diferente a lo que propone 401 C3, organización que solicita de los ricos donaciones deducibles de impuestos. Él criticó a la Trinidad -uno los mayores propietarios de terrenos en Manhattan- por no ofrecerle a Ocupar un espacio cuando el campamento fue desalojado del parque Zuccotti, y por no dejar que su compañero participara en la asamblea aunque, como señaló, sobraba espacio (Después que el evento comenzó a transmitirse vía Internet, a los miembros del público se les impidió que asistieran en persona).Al concluir sus comentarios, Ibáñez, que ha estado durmiendo en sofás desde que lo desalojaron del parque Zuccotti, retó a todos los presentes y a los que estaban mirando por Internet, a preguntarse que estaban haciendo “para , “derribar las fronteras [que los separan] de las personas a su alrededor”.“Todos nosotros podemos ser radicales”, dijo.En una plática acerca de “Economía bíblica”, grabada vía Skype, la obispa primada habló de cómo la “ética cristiana fundamental exige el cuidado de los pobres”.“Los pobres son los prójimos con menores opciones -respecto a qué comer, dónde vivir, qué clase de empleo buscar, dónde enviar a sus hijos a la escuela, si es que los envían, o dónde encontrar atención médica. La antigua expectativa moral consiste en proporcionar dignidad, apoyo y opciones básicas a aquellos con poca capacidad de encontrar su camino en el mundo”, afirmó.Joyce Carol Oates, que creció en la pobreza en el interior del estado de Nueva York, encomió al movimiento Ocupar por su “visión” y su “pasión”, y habló acerca de su experiencia personal: como recibir una beca de $500 de los Regentes de Nueva York la ayudaron a pagar sus estudios universitarios, y cómo, al sindicalizarse, lo obreros de la fábrica donde trabajaba su padre adquirieron alguna sensación de seguridad.Sin embargo, pese a la encomiable visión y pasión, lo práctico es un reto mucho mayor para Ocupar, dijo Oates.Ella animó a [los integrantes del movimiento] Ocupar a llegar, sin antagonismos, a la gente del Medio Oeste y del Sur que, según dijo, votan contra sus propios intereses, así como a otras personas, para que voten por políticos que “simpaticen con la causa”.— Lynette Wilson es redactora/reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Leka designed and constructed a building at Makedonska 21. The building has all the characteristics of academism as reflected in Leka’s solutions for clear form, spatial organization, reduced academic decoration, and emphasis on the monumentality of “timeless” buildings. All these elements, characteristic of the architecture of the period, make this building one of Belgrade’s great representatives of academism in the period between the two world wars.Save this picture!© Relja IvanicBefore reconstruction, the apartment had two distinct elements:  A salon with a line of three rooms separated by classic double doors; there was an original parquet flooring; and A separate bathroom and toilet, plus a large hallway that connected to the kitchen and pantry, with heavy walls and small rooms that could not be functionally exploited; with different floor tiles, all at different levels. Save this picture!© Relja IvanicThe apartment’s original organization failed to separate these two elements. A heavy load-bearing wall prevented good visual contact between the two elements, and created a darker than necessary internal environment.Description of the apartment’s reconstructed conditionLinking the two elements of the apartment was important for the owner, and it became a central feature of the refurbishment.Save this picture!© Relja IvanicRecognizing all the flaws of the apartment, and taking into account historic value of the interior, wedecided that the focus of the intervention should be on the second element of the apartment, particularly demolishing the heavy walls. This raised the issue of how to separate the bathroom from the kitchen in the most minimal way. This led to the design and installation of a single door (moveable) and single panel of frosted glass (fixed), both 3.2 metres high. This facilitated general circulation in the apartment, as well as provided enhanced views, energy, light and shadow.Save this picture!© Relja IvanicIn the first phase of building work, most of the major load-bearing wall was demolished and reinforced with steel beams. This connected the two elements of the apartment, and increased the usable space. The apartment immediately became more airy, light and comfortable.Save this picture!© Relja IvanicThe floor material selected for use in the non-parquet section of the apartment was by produced by Microtopping. This has been used in the bathroom, the kitchen and the hallway. Further, it has been used on two of the bathroom walls and on the horizontal surface of the large kitchen island. This use of materials without joints has produced owner’s desire for artistic unity, simplicity and tranquility.Save this picture!Before / ApartmentSave this picture!After / Reconstructed apartmentThe previous false ceiling was completely removed, and the reinforced concrete slab cleaned, thereby raising the ceiling height. In the current space, the proportion of the windows can now be seen from a distance, something that did not exist before reconstruction of the apartment.Save this picture!© Relja IvanicThe beauty and clarity of the final design have minimized the need for furniture, allowing Ross’s essential requirement of space to be separated from non-essential clutter. The space breathes now in its visual openness, and its scale provides excellent acoustics for listening to some music.Save this picture!© Relja IvanicProject gallerySee allShow less12 Online Courses for Architects and StudentsArticlesSymbiosis Masterplan and Fastweb Headquarters / Antonio Citterio Patricia VielSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Makedonska 21, Beograd, SerbiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

It was told that it was due to yellow fever that supposedly spread among the primate families. I don’t know, we were very sad.Save this picture!© Rafael MedeirosSave this picture!PerspectiveSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Rafael MedeirosAt the beginning of this year, the day we started thinking about a house that connects to the magnitude of the trees, there they appeared. A family of Capuchin Monkeys, a complete tribe! They were back and taught us the way of why, where, and how to do the project. The Monkey House was inspired by the verticality of the forest, in the possibility of approaching the crests of the trees, in a gentle and subtle way, connecting with its countless inhabitants of the kingdom of flora and fauna.Save this picture!© Gustavo UemuraSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Gustavo UemuraMonkey House structure works synergistically between wooden components all of the same profile, covered by galvalume skin and thermoacoustic insulation. Monkey House was assembled in an area of secondary forest, installed between trees, occupying a small area of 5m x 6m, thus creating zero interference in the local vegetation with a total area of 86m2. The perception of the forest is vertical. The horizon is inverted, following the flow of energy, matter, and information on the growth of trees to lead us in the search for energy, sunlight.Save this picture!© Gustavo UemuraSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Gustavo UemuraThe best design solutions already exist in Nature. For 3.8 billion years, life creates elegant solutions in intelligence and simplicity. In order to design the support structure of the Monkey House, we were observing which plants were better adapted to the topography of the land and which strategies were adopted to allow stability in height growth. The juçara or içara (Euterpe edulis) in Tupi, is an endemic palm of the Atlantic Forest which is structured through props roots, adapting itself to the downhill terrain and distributing the dynamic weight on multiple vectors ensuring stability for the thin and very tall stalk.Save this picture!© Gustavo UemuraSave this picture!© Gustavo UemuraFor the Monkey House project, we implemented the same strategy, creating a series of thin and dense pillars, inspired by the Adventist morphology of the juçara palm roots, thus ensuring stability in this vertical typology construction.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Rafael MedeirosWhen we thought about the landscape design the statement was the complete reforestation with endemic plants, which we consider is a priority in Brazil and worldwide. As well, conducting local plants’ growth around the house, it proposes a state of immersion of the house and the humans into the wild.Save this picture!© Rafael MedeirosSave this picture!© Rafael MedeirosThe top floor of Casa Macaco is an observatory.

Pinnacle House Apartments / Mae Architects

The building brings 110 more apartments to an area of once long-neglected land in London’s Royal Docks, which now forms a new town for east London, resulting in homes for 10,000 residents, a new high street, community and transport infrastructure, and public green spaces. Pinnacle House offers 1,2 and 3-bed homes over 14-storeys; the aesthetic utilises subtle detailing to help shape a strong identity for the local area.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mae ArchitectsThe building stands at the end of Minoco Park, which ties into a green network linking Lyle Park and Thames Barrier Park – an expansive stretch of open green space along the Thames. The distinct design of the façades has been developed so that in both scale and detailing they reference the history and evolving geology of the site’s context. In the deft control of form, Mæ will provide a backdrop to the landscaped urban realm.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mae ArchitectsSmooth scalloped edges are introduced to the building’s elevations as a reference to the oyster shells unearthed during the excavation of the dock walls. A strongly articulated plinth at its base gives the structure visual solidity. Robustly proportioned columns form colonnades on all four sides; on the southern approach, the colonnades connect into the desire lines established in Minoco Park, while the colonnade along the northern façade will activate the high street and improve the experience in the ground floor cafés and restaurants. Above they form a continuous loggia creating generous balconies for residents. Save this picture!Courtesy of Mae ArchitectsThe internal arrangements of the living spaces have been carefully designed to address and capture views out towards the city and the river’s edge. Where the building addresses the park and the river, the design opens up to create deep, full width balconies. On the south façade, this works to prevent excessive solar gain while creating sheltered outdoor living spaces that engage with the natural outlook. Where the building fronts onto the high street the secondary envelope steps forward, with a language of pilasters and infill panels that help to manage privacy levels.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mae ArchitectsMæ’s use of precast concrete, though restrained, adds visual interest and another layer to the narrative of the site. At the lower levels the walls have a rusticated finish, almost like a Tabby render where crushed oyster shells are used as aggregate. Immediately above the ground-floor base, the floor slabs have a polished finish fossilized aggregate. The secondary facades in this middle section are clad in limestone tiles with anodised aluminium panels, helping to differentiate the layered build up. The horizontal members and cornices which divide the orders are scalloped, creating a sculptural outer frame that adds perceived depth to the façades. The parapet’s curved shell-like form reinforces the geological narrative that Mæ have worked into the design.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mae ArchitectsThroughout the 18th an 19th centuries large sections of East London were vital to Britain’s industrial output, with high demand for large factories, and docks that could accommodate the ‘new’ vessels. Building on this heritage, high levels of investment will revitalise the area – Pinnacle House and the Sienna building are part of this process and will creating new communities and enhancing the qualities of the riverside setting.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mae ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessSpa Pavilion / smartvollSelected ProjectsWhy Lacaton & Vassal Won the 2021 Pritzker PrizeArticlesProject locationAddress:25, Pinnacle House, 4 Schooner Rd, Royal Wharf, London E16 2RE, United KingdomLocation to be used only as a reference.
