Tags: NULL ENGINEER Weir Group has snapped up an American firm that makes wind turbines and hydro-electric power stations.The Glasgow-based group refused to say how much it is paying for American Hydro Corporation, which has revenues of £27m and assets worth £18m.Weir also said it would invest £6m in a new Canadia service centre, to further boost growth in North America. American Hydro has had a tie-up with Weir over the past five years and also worked with the company on hydro projects in Scotland during the 1990s. Weir’s chief executive, Keith Cochrane, said: “Hydro-power is the world’s largest source of renewable energy.”He added: “Combined with American Hydro, we have the engineering depth and skills to accelerate our development in established hydro markets throughout the Americas and Europe”“Weir has worked with American Hydro before, so knows the business well,” said RBS analyst Andrew Douglas. whatsapp Thursday 18 November 2010 8:10 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share KCS-content Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

KCS-content Rise in orders gives a boost to UK industry Share Tuesday 26 April 2011 8:05 pm FACTORY output in the UK is increasing and fewer firms are working below capacity, new manufacturing data showed yesterday.Output volumes and total new orders rose in the three months to April and are expected to continue increasing, the Confederation of British Industry’s Quarterly Industrial Trends survey found.But the soaring cost of raw materials pushed up unit costs, prompting firms to raise selling prices at the highest rate since 1995. Citigroup economist Michael Saunders said pressure on firms’ production capacity and rapid increases in selling prices were signs that manufacturers were “experiencing the biggest boom for many years”. In the three months to April, volumes of new orders rose at 36 per cent of companies while 15 per cent reported a fall, giving an overall balance of 20 per cent of companies reporting an increase in orders.In a sign that price pressures are continuing to build in the economy, both the monthly and quarterly price expectations balances in the CBI survey rose to +36 in April – their highest since January 1990. The number of companies working below capacity fell to 55 per cent, from 62 per cent a year ago, while 29 per cent of firms said lack of plant capacity could constrain their output in the coming quarter.But economists saw weakness in April’s monthly result, as a net 11 per cent of firms said order books fell. In March, five per cent reported a rise.“There are worrying signs from a slump in orders in April and ongoing price pressures,” said Markit chief economist Chris Williamson.New orders rose at a net balance of 20 per cent of manufacturers – those who said they rose minus those who said they fell. The same level of firms said output rose, up from eight per cent in January, while a net 22 per cent also expected output to continue to grow in the next quarter.Restocking of inventories saw stocks rise to levels not seen since 1995, and a net 15 per cent said they were hiring new staff.FAST FACTS | UK MANUFACTURING55 per cent of firms are operating below capacity, down from 62 per cent last April.29 per cent of firms feel lack of factory capacity will constrain their output next quarter.Selling prices rose at fastest rate since 1995.

Tags: Charitable Gaming Email Address Norway’s gambling regulator Lotteri-og stiftelsestilsynet (Lottstift) has removed 211 organisations from its register of operators approved to operate lottery and bingo games for charitable purposes after they failed to meet a deadline to report their accounts.Of those that have had their approval revoked, 51 held licences to operate lotteries and bingo for charitable purposes in Norway.The entities eligible to offer lottery and bingo for charitable purposes include aid organisations, charities, sports teams, humanitarian bodies and special interest groups. Those removed from the register will now serve a six-month ‘quarantine’ period, during which they will not be able to reapply for licences.In order to obtain a licence to operate charitable bingo in Norway, Lottstift states that the organisation must have an annual turnover of less than NKr700,000 (£62,356/€69,919/$76,690). For lotteries, those with turnover of less than NKr200,000 do not require a licence – though must submit annual reports to Lottstift – while those with turnover above that figure must be approved by the regulator.Lottstift said the suspension, which came into effect for all 211 organisations from October 1, also means that those affected will not be able to offer bingo at all in 2020. The regulator acknowledged this may represent a significant loss of income for some voluntary organisations.A total of 5,400 organisations featured on the Lottery Register list prior to the removal of the 211 companies that failed to submit their reports.The Lottstift ruling comes after the Norwegian Ministry of Finance in August gave its backing to a proposal from Lotteritilsynet, the national lottery authority, to make charitable lottery and bingo tournament organisers exempt from new anti-money laundering regulations.The proposal, which underwent a consultation period until October 1, would reduce regulatory burdens on approximately 350 teams, associations and organisations that do not rely on third-party contractors for their bingo or lottery offerings to be exempt from the country’s new money-laundering regulations.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here By Ross Baker, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, Rutgers University and first published on theconversation.comThere is something about middle children, especially in large families. They often struggle to define themselves. Robert Francis Kennedy was the ultimate middle child. Until shortly before his untimely death 50 years ago, he was still embarked on that struggle of self-determination.Kennedy’s early career included working as a Senate staff member for the right-wing demagogue Sen. Joseph McCarthy. It would have been reasonable to conclude that as a young conservative he could only move farther right as he aged.Kennedy turned the tables on the conventional wisdom by moving — both by circumstance and by calculation — in a more liberal direction. But it was a distinctive liberalism that was shaped by his origins in a family that, despite their enormous wealth, were regarded as outsiders.I’m a political scientist who studies American government and U.S. legislative politics and I’ve worked as an adviser to Democrats in the Senate and House. It is clear to me that Robert, much more than his older brother John, was shaped by the tribalism of Massachusetts politics in the 1950s.From tribalism via religion to liberalismFor all of their money and efforts to cultivate the outward signs of WASP affluence, the Kennedys were scorned by the first families of Massachusetts the way any group with long-established wealth regards parvenues. And it wasn’t just their Irish heritage that placed them at the margins of elite Bay State society, it was their Catholicism.Of all of the four Kennedy brothers, Robert was the most emphatically Catholic.The Kennedy family in 1931. Robert is on the left in a dark sweater. Richard Sears, John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, and Museum via Wikimedia CommonsStruggling to distinguish himself in his sprawling family – all clamoring for attention from their father, Joseph P. Kennedy – Robert sought out his mother, Rose, who took her religion seriously.Competitiveness within the family also bred in him a combativeness that could verge on harshness that he struggled, sometimes unsuccessfully, to control. He made an early enemy of Senate Democratic leader Lyndon B. Johnson, while as a junior staff member, by publicly rebuking Johnson. As a former staffer myself, I remain astonished at such boldness, even from a Kennedy.Robert worked tirelessly to promote the political fortunes of his brother Jack, first in his campaign for the House and then, in 1952, when he challenged Henry Cabot Lodge for the U.S. Senate.It was this campaign in which Joe McCarthy intervened to boost Jack’s candidacy. McCarthy, a Kennedy family friend, prevailed on the Republican Senate Campaign Committee to go easy on Jack and do as little as possible to help fellow Republican Lodge.Bobby’s role as a staff member on McCarthy’s Senate subcommittee on investigations would have caused the casual observer to mark him as a rising right-winger. Added to that was his service as counsel to Sen. John McClellan’s investigation of corruption in American labor unions, and his conservative credentials were cemented.The transformationThe change in Kennedy came with his controversial appointment as attorney general in the administration of his brother at a time of great tumult in race relations. The criticism was that the appointment smacked of nepotism and that Kennedy was unqualified for the position; President Kennedy’s flip response was “I can’t see that it’s wrong to give him a little legal experience before he goes out to practice law.”It was the era of the Freedom Riders, the mostly African-American young people who boarded buses to the South to challenge segregation. Their confrontation with local authorities often led to violence.Kennedy’s initial reaction was that disorder made the United States and his brother the president look bad in the eyes of the world: hardly the reaction of a bred-in-the-bone liberal. Also, his first dealings with Martin Luther King Jr. were tense. Kennedy authorized FBI surveillance of King, saying “He’s not a serious person. If the country knew what we know about King’s goings-on, he’d be finished.” King, for his part, resented having to ask Kennedy for help.But ultimately, Kennedy’s experience dealing with the resistance of Southern governors to racial integration caused him to sympathize with the struggle for equality. He also recognized the importance to the Democratic Party of the black vote in the North, especially in presidential elections.After his brother John’s assassination, Robert Kennedy left the Justice Department and ran for senator in New York. He won, and during this period, his embrace of the plight of minorities broadened to include Mexican farm workers in their struggle to unionize.Kennedy embraced civil rights late in his career; here he meets with civil rights leaders at the White House in 1963. Abbie Rowe, National Parks Service/JFK Presidential Library and MuseumIn 1968, embattled Democratic President Lyndon Johnson declined to seek re-election in the wake of almost losing the New Hampshire primary to challenger Eugene McCarthy, the liberal anti-war Minnesota senator.Kennedy then joined the race, belatedly and reluctantly.“I run to seek new policies,” said Kennedy at his announcement. “Policies to end the bloodshed in Vietnam and in our cities. Policies to close the gaps that now exist between black and white, between rich and poor, between young and old, in this country and around the rest of the world.”While he shared McCarthy’s opposition to the Vietnam War, Kennedy emphasized the need to combat racial injustice and economic inequality. His appeal to minority voters broadened, especially after his eloquent impromptu eulogy to Dr. King in Indianapolis endowed Kennedy with an exalted status even among the most alienated African-Americans.Kennedy’s own death – assassinated right after he won the California Democratic primary just a few months after King’s – was a crushing blow to Americans who sought to right the wrongs of the nation both domestically and in the larger world. Americans hopeful for change were leaderless. Many rejected conventional politics and sought solutions in radical movements, in drugs, and in the panaceas of false prophets.For those who stayed in the fight, Kennedy’s belated embrace of social justice was readily forgiven.

The structural framework of the House comprises prefabricated, laminated and glued timber panels. From the outside it is a little bit rough and unplaned but from the inside it is smooth, soft and warm. There was no question about using this as a construction material for the House by the edge of the Woods. A mere week (!) passed between sending the digital data to the manufacturer and the completion of structural assembly on site. After finalising the factory drawings manufacturing took two days, the elements were delivered in one day and the House was assembled in another two days. It was a quick, clean and straightforward job, spiced with some excitement (see the film: The Truck Crane in the Woods). Save this picture!© Zsolt BatárThe climatic and aromatic conditions inside the house far exceed all our expectations (fresh wood smells just heavenly). This is a living, breathing structure in every sense of the word and it was occupied and populated by the Family in no time at all. At winter they heat it with a stove and a fireplace using wood coming from the nearby Woods, in the summer they air it with the cool evening air descending from the Woods, and in the morning they wake up to lovely birdsong. Save this picture!© Zsolt BatárThe House was black even in the first sketches. The final material of the elevations was, in the end, determined by Life and financial constraints. We opted for the simplest, UV-resistant façade membrane available which is water-proof from the outside but vapour-open from the inside. Just in time for the winter the “quilted down coat” was completed, then fixed to the timber panels with boards in the summer – not to make it aesthetically more appealing but to improve its longevity. A second layer (of black wooden panels?) may be applied later on if Fate (or Technical Necessity…) wills it. Save this picture!© Zsolt BatárThe House is in a constant conversation with its new cotenant, the Woods. Cohabitation has by now turned into a solid marriage and their days, months and years spent together are recorded by the Photographer on a daily basis in every season. He sometimes composes decent, pre-set pictures but is never shy to play the paparazzo and catch them in the middle of the night or under the streetlights. That said, in Batár’s pictures, similarly to those of Gregory Crewdsons’, even artificial / public lighting plays an important role. The theme, i.e. the House and the Woods have slowly acquired the status of Muse and now serve as an inspiration of photographic art. The series of pictures tell about intimacy, understanding and personality and form, as independent creations, a genuine milestone in the artist’s career.
