Sullivan, during testimony in June before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, said AIG had already been in crisis before he took the helm in 2005. But he did defend its risk management practices.After Sullivan’s departure, AIG switched chief executives three times in a little over a year. Ex-AIG chief Sullivan to head risk at Willis Former AIG chief executive Martin Sullivan, who was ousted three months before the US government bailed the insurer out, is joining Willis Group, the London-based insurance broker said yesterday.Sullivan will head a new unit that will oversee brokerage and risk management advisory services for Willis’ multinational and global accounts. He will also be deputy chairman of the company, reporting to chief executive Joe Plumeri.Sullivan has 40 years of experience in the industry, Willis said in a statement. He is best known for his tenure with American International Group, which was collapsing as he left the company in 2008. For that, Sullivan is linked to AIG’s role in the financial crisis.

Many people will be wondering what to do with their ISA allowance, as this year’s deadline looms ever closer. The stock market crash will deter some from investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA, and persuade them to play it safe with a Cash ISA instead.I understand that way of thinking, but for many people, opening a Cash ISA could be a big mistake that will cost them dear in the long run. You might be surprised to hear that a Stocks and Shares ISA may be a better use of your allowance right now.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…The big appeal of a Cash ISA during the current stock market crash is that your money is safe. While the FTSE 100 and other global indices have fallen by up to a third, any cash savings will not have fallen at all.Cash ISA returns are poorEverybody should have some cash, enough to cover six months of spending in emergencies like this one, held on instant access so you can get your hands on it quickly. But if you leave too much of your long-term savings in cash, you will regret it in the longer run.History shows that stocks and shares deliver a superior return to cash over the long run. You may suffer the odd stock market crash like this one, but in the longer run, shares are a far better way to boost wealth for your retirement.By investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA rather than leaving money to idle in a Cash ISA, you are getting exposure to the fortunes of the UK’s top companies, and will benefit both when their share prices rise, and when they pay out dividends.Stocks and Shares ISA yields moreBlue-chip stocks typically yield around 4% a year on average, but in this crazy market, you can get as much as 15%. By contrast, the best easy access Cash ISA pays just 1.25%, a variable rate that is likely to fall in the near future, following the Bank of England’s move to cut base rates to 0.1%.Even best buy Cash ISAs are set to pay less than the rate of inflation, which means the value of your money will actually be falling in real terms.The stock market crash should actually tempt you to buy shares, rather than ignore them. Right now, they are about a third cheaper than before the Covid-19 crisis, which means you are picking them up at a relative bargain price.You need to be brave to buy in a stock market crash like this one, and should only invest money you will not need for at least five to 10 years, and preferably longer, to give it time to grow in value.In the longer run, current worries will pass, and share prices will recover. When that happens, you will be glad you chose a Stocks and Shares ISA over a Cash ISA.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Kyle Sinckler has impressed on and off the field so far. But with their squad selection against the Auckland Blues, there are some British & Irish Lions players capable of winning over the local fans Uncompromising: CJ Stander has a smashmouth style that is appreciated in New ZealandIf anyone is likely to pull a rabbit out of a hat in this next game though, mixing work-rate with spontaneity and a finisher’s instinct, it is Jack Nowell. The industrious Justin Tipuric at seven and Elliot Daly on the other wing are players who can catch the eye and burst past opponents, but do not be surprised if it is the Exeter Chiefs spark plug who creates some box office moments on both sides of the ball. He is favoured by England for his shrewd defensive positioning while his scything first-phase try in this year’s Premiership final offered a scorching example of his ability.And perhaps more importantly, if he does create some of the game’s big moments, it will be with a smile on his face. With their selection for the match-up against the Auckland Blues, the British & Irish Lions have a fantastic opportunity to win over more hearts and minds within the New Zealand rugby public.After a spluttering start against the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians – in which the tourists edged the contest 13-7, in Whangarei – the Lions must now get into their stride. Against the Provincial Baa-Baas the Lions struggled to convert chances, crossing the line four times but not dotting down. A clinical display would go some way to soothing fears for the visitors, while the locals are waiting to see something exciting from the Lions.Decisive moment: Anthony Watson scores the telling try against the BarbariansWarren Gatland has said from the get-go that the Lions must understand and interact with the indigenous culture – something that was writ large during the breathtaking Maori welcome at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds on Sunday. However, earning respect in New Zealand also means playing both hard and entertaining rugby.In that vein, the Lions have picked an ecclectic squad to face the Blues in Auckland on Thursday, that marries powerful elements – see CJ Stander, Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes and Robbie Henshaw – with some more unpredictable characters. And it is those flashbulb players who may win over the Kiwi punters.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERELions tours need heroes and often they come from unexpected places. In Whangarei, Kyle Sinckler put his hand up as an early candidate for fans favourite. Sinckler has been breezy and fun with the press, has joined in well on community visits and before the match he was even clocked by Sky Sports, talking a local security guard through scrummaging technique. During the game he was active in attack and caught the eye with his distribution skills. When he took a tap-and-go into contact but was turned over, a large number of spectators forgave him – this was positive play, and his excitement shone through, he was let down by his support. Ben Te’o and Ross Moriarty also belied the overall team performance with their physical displays, and they look set to accumulate respect throughout their stay in New Zealand, but often it is the unexpected play and the willingness to enjoy oneself that makes tour heroes. Sinckler has made a fine start to his Lions career.

Each segment receives a distinct massing, facade, and layout with varying rental spaces. This project represents a study in the purposefully awkward proportion and subtle detail as a way of functionally dislodging a building from its surroundings, a way of creating identity given what is otherwise very standard and materially contextual. Save this picture!© Kyoungtae Kim / Jinhyu KimSave this picture!© Kyoungtae Kim / Jinhyu KimThe ground floor is used as a fashion design studio and parking space. This floor is made of concrete volumes in an open space, -like islands in the sea. Each volume was cast in form-works which were covered by thin plastic sheets in order to have sharp edges with smooth exposed concrete surfaces. The 2nd and 3rd floors contain one bedroom apartments, the most common in the rental market.Save this picture!First floor planThe massing is the largest area and divided into 4 units on each floor. Granite panels – common in the neighborhood- were used as a facade material. Unlike the panels used in the neighborhood, each panel was machine-tooled as shallowly as possible to have unexpected pattern as the carving depth is similar to the machine’s tolerance.

The difference between the 4th floor and the volume below create small terrace spaces that belong to each room. Almost black stucco emphasizes the set-back form of this level. The top floor is an oblique volume divided by curved concrete walls. This floor is wrapped around by metal sheets without conventional ridge flashing on each corner. There is only one window that is visible outside. The living room is open to a private outdoor space surrounded by tall white walls filled with white pebbles on the floor.Save this picture!© Kyoungtae Kim / Jinhyu KimProject gallerySee allShow lessCascading House / Nha Dan ArchitectsSelected ProjectsDevant Soi House / Studio GAONSelected Projects Share 2019 South Korea CopyHouses•Seoul, South Korea Quad House / KIMNAM Architects Keukdong Powertech Architects: KIMNAM Architects Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Projects Photographs: Kyoungtae Kim / Jinhyu Kim Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Quad House / KIMNAM ArchitectsSave this projectSaveQuad House / KIMNAM ArchitectsSave this picture!© Kyoungtae Kim / Jinhyu Kim+ 32Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/925758/quad-house-kimnam-architects Clipboard Manufacturers: Geberit, Catalano, Keuco, LG Hausys, Sto, Viabizzuno, Adobe, Autodeks, Eagon, FILOBE, Hunter Douglas, McNeel Year: TEO Structure CopyAbout this officeKIMNAM ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeoulOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on October 02, 2019Cite: “Quad House / KIMNAM Architects” 01 Oct 2019.

Did you know that one of the most protected rights in this country is the right of the government to lie to the people?That is the essence of the persecution being carried out right now against Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange. Manning was a U.S. Army intelligence analyst based in Iraq when, in February 2010, she first sent incriminating internal documents about the war there to WikiLeaks, headed by Assange. She had earlier contacted the Washington Post and the New York Times, but they weren’t interested.The information included 750,000 sensitive military and diplomatic documents on U.S. wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan. It included graphic photos and videos of U.S. torture and systematic abuse. It included a video showing a U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan that killed scores of civilians. All this punctured the sanitized myth the military and the U.S. government had created to justify their imperialist war crimes in the Middle East.For opening these damaging documents to public scrutiny, Manning was jailed by the Army on May 27, 2010. She was sentenced to 35 years in prison and remained behind bars for almost seven years — where she was kept in a men’s prison and subjected to anti-trans abuse — until pardoned by President Obama. The war hawks were furious about her release, and on May 16 of last year, with a more reactionary group now in the White House, she was rearrested for refusing to testify against Assange before a grand jury. The U.N. Special Rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, has now charged the U.S. government with using “severe measures of coercion” on Manning that amount to torture. (Guardian, Dec. 31, 2019) Julian Assange, an Australian who founded WikiLeaks in 2006, has also been persecuted and threatened with arrest since 2010, when he made public the online materials liberated by Manning and others that showed the true character of the brutal U.S. war in Iraq. For six years he had to take sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. But the Ecuadorian government has since moved to the right. Last April, under U.S. pressure, Assange was forced to leave the embassy. He was immediately arrested and since then has been held in solitary confinement in Belmarsh, a maximum security prison in London. Now in seriously deteriorating health, Assange is fighting extradition to the U.S., where he could be sentenced to 175 years in prison or even given the death penalty.The documents released by both Manning and Assange were not “fake news.” Even the current right-wing U.S. government hasn’t been able to accuse them of that. Their courageous release provided the public with the real news about what was going on in the world — coming right from the horse’s mouth in government documents that had been marked “Eyes Only” or “No Distribution.”These documents refute the sanitized version of past and current wars, which are prettified in both government statements and corporate media news reports. The “crime” of Manning and Assange was to reveal the brutal and predatory nature of the U.S. billionaire class. The super-rich will get their politicians and generals to commit any crime against humanity if that helps pump up their super-profits.Free Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange!

June 13 marked the beginning of the third week of protests in Raleigh, N.C., the state capital and home of the murderous Raleigh Police Department and more than 70 other law enforcement agencies. Different days have drawn different groups with varying goals, but not a day has gone by without hundreds of people turning out on the streets to support Black Liberation and oppose the police.Raleigh demonstrators block entrance to Central Prison for eight minutes and 46 seconds.WW PHOTO: Durham WW bureauProtests have focused on contesting city sites glorifying white supremacy. From the moment protests began at 5 p.m. on May 30, hundreds of people immediately besieged the Wake County Detention Center. Others gathered around Confederate monuments in the state capital, the Raleigh Municipal Building, which holds the offices of the mayor and city council, and the governor’s mansion. They also went to many sites of police killings around the city.On June 11, hundreds of demonstrators marched on the Central Prison in Raleigh during shift change. They blocked the exits for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck, killing him. On the day of this protest, Thomas Lane, former police officer who has been charged with aiding and abetting this horrific murder, was released from custody on bail.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Noah Parker Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Linkedin TCU News Now 4/1/2021 Linkedin printThe TCU Horned Frogs won 12-3 over the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks at home on Feb. 26, marking their seventh win of the season. The Frogs scored four runs in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back, capitalizing on several SFA miscues and working through their entire batting order. SFA started slow, walking lead-off man Porter Brown and first baseman Austin Henry to bring up Gene Wood, who was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Brown opened up the scoring on the night, stealing home base from third. Then, catcher Kurtis Byrne drove in Henry on a base hit — the first of his career — and Wood on an SFA error. “I was just excited for him to get that one out of the way,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said on Byrne’s first hit. “He’s a really good player.”At one point during the second inning, TCU was ahead 4-0 while having only recorded two hits. TCU’s offense kept up the pace, adding on three more runs in the third inning. TCU gained five more runs through the last four innings to stretch the lead even further.Riley Cornelio pitched the first 2.2 innings of the 12-3 victory vs Stephen F. Austin on Feb 26, 2020, allowing just one hit. Photo by Jack Wallace.TCU’s starting pitcher Riley Cornelio only allowed one hit but walked three batters in a 2.2 inning outing. Cornelio was removed after a string of walks and a hit-by-pitch. Austin Krob lead the Frogs’ pitching staff with three strikeouts on the night.“He wasn’t throwing the breaking ball for strikes,” Schlossnagle said about Cornelio. “He just got out of his element.”Schlossnagle was pleased with TCU’s offensive effort that produced 12 runs on the night. “We’ve been swinging the bat really well,” he said, “much better than we anticipated going into the season.”Byrne’s first hit came in limited action as starting catcher Zach Humphries was subbed in for one at-bat late in the game. “Kurtis is going to catch at least once a week for sure,” Schlossnagle said. “Humphries is our catcher, but Kurtis is a huge part of our team and a big part of our future, so we’ve gotta make sure we give him a lot of playing time.”TCU returns to action Friday night for the first of a three-game home series with California.
