The company was previously expected to make £3m over the first six months of the year.A week ago shares in Rok almost halved in value in a single day after the group admitted that an accounting report had found financial irregularities in its plumbing, heating and electrical arm. Finance director Ashley Martin was subsequently suspended and is now thought unlikely to return to work with the group.Analysts are confident that if the problems are contained within just one facet of the company, shares will bounce back, but they warn that it will take several sets of solid results to restore confidence in Rok – particularly after the escalating problems at Connaught.Rok had expanded into other construction services four years ago, but the companies it bought out did not adopt its own accounting standards and software until October last year.Snook hired BDO Stoy Hayward to conduct a thorough appraisal of the plumbing division after an internal investigation shed light on the fact that it was making losses rather than a healthy margin.

GC reveals overall decline in British gambling revenue

first_img Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines Bingo AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Topics: Casino & games Finance Bingo Slots The GB Gambling Commission has reported a 0.5% decline in gross gambling yield (GGY) for the 12 months from October 2018 to September 2019, though this was mitigated in part by an increase contribution from online gaming. However, year-on-year comparisons reveal a 1.8% decline in online revenue.Overall market revenue for the year ended 30 September, 2019 fell to £14.26bn (€15.89bn/$17.47bn), down from £14.33bn reported in the 12 months to 31 March, which includes a six month overlap. However, a like-for-like comparison, with the year ended 30 September 2018, revealed a 1.4% decline.The sequential decline, the regulator explained, was due to the land-based sector’s struggles. During the period in question, the number of gambling premises fell 9.6% to 9,745, while the number of betting shops – following the B2 stake cut in April 2019 – fell 12.1% to 7,315.This cut contributed to revenue from B2 machines dropping 46.4% to £624.0m, with Category B3 machines’ contribution falling 18.5% to £1.3bn. As a result, total gaming machine yield was down 11.8% to £2.5bn. Revenue for land-based casinos was also down, falling 0.6% to £1.05bn. Turning online, the Commission said that gross yield for the 12 months to 30 September amounted to £5.51bn. While this represented a 4.3% increase compared to the year to 31 March 2019, it was down 1.8% year-over-year. Online casino accounted for £3.19bn of the total, followed by £2.12bn from betting and £198.1m from bingo.As of 30 September 2019, players held 30.2m accounts with licensed operators, down 2.7% from 31 March that year, while new account registrations fell 5.6% to 31.5m for that same period.The national lottery, meanwhile, saw sales rise 3.9% to £7.49bn, of which £4.30bn was awarded to players as prizes. The lottery issued £1.58bn to good causes, and paid £901.7m in lottery duty. Retailers received £304.3m in commission, leaving operator Camelot with £395.9m. Other lotteries, both online and land-based, generated sales of £775.6m in the 12-month period.The regulatory body intends to publish the next set of data results, covering the year ended 31 March 2020, in November. The most recent set of results for this reporting period saw overall market GGY amount to £14.4bn.

The site is located in Nasu, Tochigi Prefecture, a well-known summer resort. Passing through fields and woodlands, the site lies along the forest path in a grove of mixed trees. Our client is a married couple that enjoys organic farming on the weekends, and their wish was to reserve as much of the environment as possible and to live in the surrounding woods. We avoided large-scale construction and a majority of felling to build the rooms on the few remaining flat surfaces of the sloping ground, as if sewing them together.Save this picture!© Koji Fuji – Nacasa & Partners IncSince the site is located in the midst of dense woods, we came up with the idea of having a high ceiling to let direct sunlight in the house. However, this would result in the space becoming too large, cost a lot to run the air-conditioning and the exterior walls would bump into the branches. Therefore, we eliminated unnecessary space. First, we cut down the upper space diagonally to make the ceiling lower based on the way people move. In addition, the new form matches the tree branches that spread out radially. This resulted in a tent-shaped house with only one third of the volumes. Although the highest ceiling is 8m, the average ceiling height dates a standard 2,6m. As a matter of fact, people cannot stand upright close to the walls, so we simply turned the spaces into sleeping and sitting areas. The ceiling descends like a tent and enables the creation of a warm living space that mingles with the trees. You will feel the warmhearted embrace of the house around you.Save this picture!© Hiroshi Nakamura & NAPIt is similar to primitive spaces seen in the houses of the Jomon People (Ancient Japanese) and Native Americans. The structure of the house initiated a lifestyle with close interaction, because the family sat along the low wall facing each other. A fire, a light or a table was set in the middle to initiate conversation as the family gathered around the center. The architecture has had an influence on people’s habits and it strengthened the connection and bond of the family. Save this picture!Floor PlanAt night, the moonlight becomes the only natural illumination and the dark forest falls into silence. At times, the presence of wild animals can be heard ever so faintly. In the darkness of the night, you will find a house filled with warm and gentle looks. The “pointy-hat” building cantilevers slightly above ground in order to prevent insects, humidity and fallen snow entering the house.Save this picture!© Koji Fuji – Nacasa & Partners IncThe windows are all double glazed in order to ensure that the tall spaces are airtight and well insulated. We installed the fireplace and the air-conditioning underfloor by making use of the floor heating and the pit. During summer, warm air gathers at the top and escapes through the top light side window. During winter, warm air at the upper part will be drawn in and blown out at floor level. This way, we are able to create a very comfortable air environment. Save this picture!SectionPressed flower glass doorAkebi, viola, anemone, geranium, larkspur – the wild flowers found in the pressed flower glass all came from the surrounding woods. Our idea was to find a new way to reflect the blessings of nature, not just in the context of samples or picture books. We manufactured the glass by sandwiching the pressed flowers in resin films between two 4mm thick glasses and firing them in vacuum. We put films for ultraviolet protection in the glass to protect the flowers from decolorization.Save this picture!© Koji Fuji – Nacasa & Partners IncOriginally published on January 12, 2016Project gallerySee allShow lessSeibmacA Xi’an Dahua Store / Shangzhai Liangying DesignSelected ProjectsAntivilla / Brandlhuber+Emde, BurlonSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Japan ArchDaily Save this picture!© Koji Fuji – Nacasa & Partners Inc+ 27Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Architects: Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img “COPY” Nasu Tepee / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAPSave this projectSaveNasu Tepee / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780147/nasu-tepee-hiroshi-nakamura-and-nap Clipboard Area:  156 m² Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/780147/nasu-tepee-hiroshi-nakamura-and-nap Clipboard Nasu Tepee / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP CopyAbout this officeHiroshi Nakamura & NAPOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsIcebergOn FacebookJapanPublished on November 30, 2019Cite: “Nasu Tepee / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP” 30 Nov 2019.

MISSISSIPPI auto workers on road to historic union vote

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this ‘Workers Rights = Civil Rights’ March on Mississippi by community and labor coalition, Canton, Miss., March 4, 2017.In a historic action on July 10, workers at the Canton, Miss., Nissan automobile manufacturing plant filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board for a union recognition election with the United Auto Workers union.The plant is one of the largest automobile plants in the U.S. South, with 6,400 workers. Eligible voters in the election are Nissan production technicians and maintenance workers totaling around 3,800. The overwhelming majority of workers at the Canton facility are African American.Most auto workers in the South are not represented by unions. A few facilities for companies like Freightliner, Ford, General Motors, Chrysler and other smaller parts plants in the region are organized. But automakers — including Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen — are building factories in this region because of generous state and local incentives, right-to-work (for less!) laws and state governments eager to publicly oppose unions.Business interests want the plants free of union organizing that builds worker solidarity and counteracts the brutal racism and continued inequalities left from the history of enslavement and Jim Crow segregation of African Americans in the South.If the union wins the election, the Mississippi plant will be the first “foreign transplant” facility to be fully unionized. At the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., the UAW only represents skilled trades workers, a small minority of the total workforce. VW is still refusing to recognize them as a bargaining unit.With the exception of two Honda plants in rural Ohio, every U.S. auto transplant factory is in the South. A union victory at Nissan will boost organizing efforts at all of these plants.Winning at Nissan will also put the UAW in a stronger bargaining position with GM, Ford and Fiat Chrysler at the national level. These companies typically use competitive pressure from the transplants as a club to force concessions from UAW members who work at the Detroit Three.While the Mississippi workers are hoping the union will help them fight the expansion of the lower-paid temporary workforce in the Nissan plant, the recent contracts for UAW-represented autoworkers in other regions have allowed the bosses to hire more temporary workers, who are paid less and have fewer benefits.It is imperative for every autoworker, inside and outside the U.S., to be in solidarity with the Mississippi Nissan workers. But this solidarity must be free of the chauvinistic, anti-Japanese, “buy American” rhetoric that the UAW has employed in the past.Workers’ Rights = Civil RightsOrganizing at the Mississippi plant has been going on for over 12 years. On March 4, there was a mass, community-worker “March on Mississippi: Workers’ Rights = Civil Rights.” Several hundred people gathered in Canton to draw public attention to this struggle, including actor Danny Glover, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and Clarence Thomas, former officer of Bay Area dockworkers’ International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10, spark of the 1934 West Coast General Strike.  The marchers demanded that Nissan respect employees’ right to vote for a union without fear of retaliation.In an interview with Workers World, Ernest Whitfield, a 13-year employee and press operator in the Canton plant, was clear: “We state that workers rights are civil rights. Right now our state and federal rights to have a fair vote is being threatened and suppressed.”Whitfield added, “The tactics that they are using is nothing short of what they were doing in the 1950’s and 1960’s as voter suppression and intimidation against Black people. That is why we link workers rights with civil rights. This is an 80 to 85 percent African-American plant.”By Tuesday, July 11, company intimidation of the workers had already started. “This week there has been a difference in the plant,” said Whitfield. “Some of management’s reaction has been a Mr. Nice Guy role: come out on the line, asking if there is enough air, because usually it is pretty hot. They are catering to workers in an abnormal way.” Then on Wednesday, the plant manager, Steve Marsh, published an anti-union video.The workers didn’t let those tactics go unnoticed. On Wednesday, July 12, a group of workers drove down to New Orleans to drop off a box of union cards at the local National Labor Relations Board, requesting they monitor and help with a free and fair election. On Thursday, July 13, two workers, Travis Parks and Eric Hearn, walked into the boss’s office at the Canton plant and delivered a letter to demand that they recognize and bargain with the UAW.By Friday night, at shift change, workers were passing out union fliers to their co-workers at the turnstiles. Later on that night, supervisors brought out fliers listing so-called facts about the UAW to scare workers.According to Whitfield: “It was typical playbook stuff from other anti-union campaigns. Our manager spoke directly about the election, saying that the temps were left out, stating that they will not be able to vote, but that is not the case.”Temp, two-tier, all workers in organizing driveThe union has been organizing workers in the temp agencies, and close to a majority in some have filled out union cards.Out of the roughly 6,400 workers in the plant, over 2,600 are temps who work for contractor companies. The company hires workers through the temp agencies to keep the workers divided, in an attempt to weaken them and make it more difficult to organize.Temporary agencies inside the Canton Nissan plant include Kelly Services, Minact Yates (with about 640 workers in plant) and Yates Services. There are also subcontractors under Kelly Services, including Onin and Excelsior Services.According to Whitfield, “Contractors do the same work that we do. We work side-by-side with them in all job categories.” But there is a tiered system of pay and benefits.Even for workers that are employed directly with Nissan there is a two tiered system, including a lower tier called “Pathway.” This is for former temps now hired by Nissan who are not offered the same health insurance, pay and other benefits as other Nissan employees. For instance, Nissan workers are offered a Healthcare Reimbursement Account (HRA)  with a $1,500 annual deductible, while Pathway workers are only offered a Healthcare Saving Account (HSA) with a $2,600 annual deductible.‘Bring the weight of the community onto this plant’The projected date for the union election is for the second week of August. The UAW is waiting on the NLRB to confirm the exact date.“Our goal is to union the election and bring the union into the plant, regardless of tactics management is doing,” emphasized Whitfield. “We need to bring the weight of the community onto this plant. We are inviting social justice and civil rights and other community activists to let this management team know they need to back off these tactics. United we can win!”Martha Grevatt, trustee of UAW Local 869 and 30-year UAW Fiat Chrysler worker, contributed to this article.last_img read more

Employers to lose out over MoD call-up

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts: The Ministry of Defence has denied claims that 300 employers are appealingagainst the call- up of reservists for a possible war against Iraq. The Daily Telegraph claimed large numbers of reservists and their employersare angry about the length of time employees will serve without sufficientcompensation, and are challenging the call-up. However, the MoD said there had been few formal complaints, but would notdisclose the exact number. MoD rules allow employers to apply for an exemptionif they can show that the reservist’s absence would seriously harm thebusiness. Many business owners claim that losing employees will cost them dearly,despite MoD compensation. Anthony Caffyn, consultant with Caffyn’s car dealership, said businessescould suffer if they lost skilled staff, and that current laws need to bechanged. “If a company loses a skilled worker for nine months or so, that wouldcreate a significant, serious situation for the employer,” he said. “While there are compensation and hardship payments available, these donot begin to cover the costs,” he added. Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon has announced a further 4,500 reservists wouldbe called up in preparation for possible military operations against Iraq. www.sabre.mod.ukcenter_img Employers to lose out over MoD call-upOn 11 Feb 2003 in Military, Personnel Today Features list 2021 – submitting content to Personnel TodayOn this page you will find details of how to submit content to Personnel Today.

Surface melt and ponding on Larsen C Ice shelf and the impact of foehn winds

first_imgA common precursor to ice shelf disintegration, most notably that of Larsen B Ice Shelf, isunusually intense or prolonged surface melt and the presence of surface standing water. However, therehas been little research into detailed patterns of melt on ice shelves or the nature of summer melt ponds.We investigated surface melt on Larsen C Ice Shelf at high resolution using Envisat advanced syntheticaperture radar (ASAR) data and explored melt ponds in a range of satellite images. The improvedspatial resolution of SAR over alternative approaches revealed anomalously long melt duration inwestern inlets. Meteorological modelling explained this pattern by föhn winds which were common inthis region.Melt ponds are difficult to detect using optical imagery because cloud-free conditions are rarein this region and ponds quickly freeze over, but can be monitored using SAR in all weather conditions.Melt ponds up to tens of kilometres in length were common in Cabinet Inlet, where melt duration wasmost prolonged. The pattern of melt explains the previously observed distribution of ice shelfdensification, which in parts had reached levels that preceded the collapse of Larsen B Ice Shelf,suggesting a potential role for föhn winds in promoting unstable conditions on ice shelves.last_img read more
