France Tel and Deutsche Tel join forces to cut costs

first_img FRANCE Telecom and Deutsche Telekom plan to jointly buy network gear, mobiles and other information technology to save money, the two groups said yesterday.The project has the potential to save about €1.3bn (£798m) annually after three years — a little under €900m for France Telecom and around €400m for Deutsche, they said.The companies plan to finalise the formation of a 50-50 jointly owned and operated venture in the coming weeks, subject to board approval and antitrust clearance.“The new joint venture will offer a more efficient sourcing organisation that will lead to more effective partnerships with suppliers,” said Olaf Swantee, executive vice-president at France Telecom.The tie-up is the latest step in an initiative the groups unveiled in February, which identified five areas of cooperation, including radio access network sharing in Europe.

Loob has worked for Svenska Spel since 1997, rising through the ranks to the role of finance chief, and also served as the company’s interim chief executive between July and November 2018. “I am very pleased with the confidence to be responsible for the finance and business support function for Svenska Spel,” Stoppel said. “I hope to contribute my experiences from change work and digital transformation in other competitive sectors.”Patrik Hofbauer, president and chief executive of Svenska Spel, added: “In addition to Eva’s solid experience as CFO, she also has valuable expertise in terms of business development and change work.“She also has knowledge of digital transformation, which will be a great asset for us. With Eva, we get a CFO who has all these important parts and who also knows how it works in regulated and highly competitive sectors.”Stoppel’s appointment is the latest in a line of senior changes at Svenska Spel, which last week also named Mikael Franzén as its new IT director, replacing Jörgen Olofsson in the role.Last month, the operator appointed NetEnt’s Anna Romboli as manager for its draw-based games division and brought in Carolina Swaffer for the new role of head of agents, customer service and partner services.center_img 27th June 2019 | By contenteditor Swedish gambling operator Svenska Spel has appointed Eva Stoppel as its new chief financial officer, effective September 1.

Sports betting in the time of Covid-19

Read his latest posting. He is telling people that Republicans vote on Tuesday, and Democrats vote on Thursday!! Everyone is suppose to vote on Tuesday, whether they are Republicans, Democrats, or other. If you don’t get a hold of him and have him correct that factually inaccurate voting information, I guess people will know how you both are! Is this the plan, or is he misinformed? Anyone waiting until Thursday won’t get to vote, as it will be over. You need to get him to correct this crud he posted.

He has a heart of gold and not a selfish bone in his body. Sam Ruth has always been about the people of Apopka – even if you don’t entirely agree with his position. Reply 5 COMMENTS Lisa, mama was right. Lake Apopka is dangerous. The wind out there will change on a dime. It can be glass calm and then in five minutes can get windy enough to capsize your boat. I still can’t believe that they allow people to walk the loop with their little kids and pets around there. Best thing ever was opening it to drive around to see it. Those gators are huge, and are as fast as lightening. Some people say they will not bother you, if you leave them alone, well they are wrong. You don’t underestimate them. I know you love your brother, Lisa. I wish Sam the best on his campaign. You said last night at the debate, that you’ve never been in Lake Apopka, or was it, on Lake Apopka??? because your mama said it was dangerous????? You said before, that you were born on Lake Apopka. I don’t get it, Sammy??????? Why do you have to shout at the top of your lungs, “I am your Commissioner”, you think we got hearing problems or something? Reply Tenita Reid Please enter your comment! Tenita Reid Candidate Feature – Commissioner Sam Ruth (Incumbent Seat #3)Sam RuthSam Ruth is a fighter. His many years of coaching and playing sports has given him a competitor’s heart. He speaks in a booming voice with a plainspoken manner and an outspoken attitude. He has the look and presence of a pugilist from another era, but the mindset to look forward into Apopka’s future. Ruth is the incumbent Commissioner of Seat #3 and he is running against Pastor Doug Bankson and Alice Nolan.He ran for the City Commission three times before winning a seat in 2014, and because of this he sees his mission as a messenger of the people.“I love Apopka. I love its people. I spent 26 years coaching at Apopka High School. Both football and baseball. I was a part of a lot of great teams. State champions. Now I’m in a new arena – the political arena. I want people to know I will champion their message because their message is the most valuable thing that I have. That’s my job, that’s my sole purpose… to be their messenger. I can do what their four minutes (speaking at a City Council meeting) can’t do – I can vote.”He has lived in Apopka almost all of his life, but it’s the last two years he speaks of with pride.“22 months ago we were doing crime statistics by hand. We were on Novel-Dos. We’ve upgraded the entire IT Department. It was a 30-year old system that we brought into the 21st century. And we had a City Council that was willing to finance this new IT department.”He also speaks highly of the investment the City has made in leadership.“Our new department heads are better than the ones we had. I think the City Attorney we have today is better than the one we had. I think the City Administrator is better. I think our Finance Director is as good or equal to the previous director. I think our Police Chief is going to raise the APD to a level it’s never been. We have a Parks and Recreation Director that we didn’t have before. We have a Grants Writer we didn’t have. We have a Public Information Officer. That’s by far one of the best investments we’ve made. We had no presence with the media before this. I’m pretty proud of what we’ve done in the last two years. We’ve tackled some pretty big issues and I challenge anyone to say we’re not better off than we were 24 months ago.”He also sees the future of Apopka as undecided but exciting, and he wants to help shape the vision to come, and champion its advance.“We don’t have an identity anymore. We were the foliage capitol of the world… we no longer have that identity. But we’ve got these vast tracks of land ready to be developed. I’m excited to see what we’re going to do. But however we re-define ourselves, I want to make sure we have a message and a champion to defend it.”He sees the City Center project as a possible beginning to Apopka re-defining itself, but he has reservations about the deal with the developer.“When we have this meeting with Taurus (Taurus Southern Investments, LLC), I’ll ask the tough questions, he said.”He references “deal-breakers” that if not answered will cause Ruth to cast a “no” vote on the project. These deal-breakers are related to traffic improvements on roads within the project – McGee Avenue, 6th Street, 436 and 441. It also proposes Martin’s Pond extending to 436. All of this will need to be addressed before Ruth signs off on it.“I’m for the project, but these obstacles must be overcome.”Another concern Ruth has is the “swiss-cheese” makeup of City versus County residents. He wants to take a different approach towards bringing these “non-Apopka” residents into Apopka – inviting them.“We are about 40,000 in population in Apopka, but if you go into the un-incorporated areas we are more like 80,000. Half the people don’t know if they’re in the city or the county. I want to bridge that relationship. I want to have a greeting committee go out and invite these neighborhoods into Apopka. And that doesn’t cost anything. We can go neighborhood-to-neighborhood. Door-to-door.” Ruth also wants to champion Apopka businesses when he took the lead on making it easier for them to win contracts from The City of Apopka.“On some of these big ticket items, instead of sending a million dollars to Orlando or Jacksonville, why can’t we make it so these deals stay in Apopka?”According to Ruth, he was the catalyst on a Preferred Apopka Vendor program that allows Apopka businesses to bid 3% higher and still win contracts against “out of city” competitors.“And now when we write a $750,000 contract, it goes over here to Mullinax (Ford). I just think it’s a win/win for our businesses and the City. We set the preferred vendor list and Mullinax won the bid. They employee 150 people. And they will also get the service contracts for these city vehicles. Allowing them to do that allows them to employee more people.” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Comm.

Merida House / Ludwig Godefroy Architecture

Casa Merida is a single-family house project located in the historic center of Mérida, a few blocks away from its main central square, in its colonial area. Mérida is the capital of Yucatán, but also the capital of the Mayan culture, Yucatán representing a large part of the Mexican Mayan territory.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!© Rory GardinerMerida is a city where life without AC is almost impossible, and where it became very usual to use it 24 hours a day. How can we step back from this intense use of AC Mérida is doing today? And what could be the possibilities architecture is offering us? With this goal in mind and having a look at the past, came the following question: How is it possible to build architecture that reflects and considers the yucatán identity, to make this house belong to its territory? In other words, how could this house be Mayan?Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rory GardinerCasa Merida project is exploring the relationship between contemporary and traditional architecture; both connected through a very simple use of vernacular references. When entering for the first time on site, something memorable was the unique proportion of the plot, which is a broken rectangle of 80 meters long X 8 meters wide, looking like a big lane. Here came the one and only idea of the project: to preserve this 80 meters perspective, as a straight line, crossing the entire plot from the entrance door until the ending point, where the swimming pool is located; Inserting back the traditional airflow cooling concept as a starting point. But it was not only about the air circulation, but this long perspective is also referring to the Mayan antic culture and architecture, and more precisely to its Mayan « Sacbé » literally the white path, stone ways covered with white limestone stuc.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!© Rory GardinerWith its airflow column, Casa Merida went back to an original and elemental principle of the vernacular Yucatec architecture, the natural crossed ventilation, which then brought the project to a second question: How is it possible to reach the best self-sufficiency in the middle of a city, without being so dependent of modern technologies, to try to be more responsible with the energy waste management of the place? This next concern took the project towards the idea of disconnecting the house from the city to get better control over it, basically creating a sort of isolated countryside situation in the middle of an urban context. To physically disconnect Casa Mérida from the city, the layout has been modified by switching the social area with the backyard area; sending the living room, kitchen and swimming pool to the end of the land, furthermore the quietest area where the noise of the street doesn’t reach you anymore; in order to bring the functional backyard to the front, to use it as a buffer on the city.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rory GardinerTo typologically disconnect. In addition to the permutation between front and back, the general layout of the house is also organized according to a regular rhythm of positive built area and negative empty area, to always generate empty spaces on both sides of the built spaces, making the gardens participate instead of only being juxtaposed ornamental ones. The outdoor spaces got integrated as part of the inner space, vanishing the classical border between in and out, increasing the visual depth in order to create a more generous amplitude sensation of the volumes. Casa Merida is inverting the classical scheme of the house with its garden, to create a singular habitable garden with its house.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!© Rory GardinerTo electrically disconnect. To conclude, after isolating the house in a sensitive way, came the last obvious point of disconnecting the house, electrically speaking, from the city. To complete a full cycle of water regeneration, the rainwater had to go back to this subsoil, and absorption wells were designed to fulfill this function, placed under sculptural water collectors, which became part of the aesthetic of the house. The wasted water system also got disconnected from the one of the city, using a biodigester to treat the dirty water and generate water for the garden. The full cycle from pumping to regenerating without letting the city in charge of our wasted water was now completed. The last point was the electricity, resolved by using obvious but proper technologies, such as solar boilers to warm the water, as well as solar panels to cover the rest of the needs in electricity.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!© Rory GardinerTo culturally reconnect. The project is willing to get rid of the unnecessary, no finishing and no decoration, to only preserve the structural part, as well as only simple materials. Mayan cream stone walls have been built in a traditional way by covering the joints with the stone splinters, typical stone from Yucatán used in antic Mayan pyramids, and temples sites. The brut concrete has also been used for the floors and the walls, definitely industrial but still locally produced in Mérida, the main structural material. Finally, to control the light atmosphere, massive wooden louver windows and doors have been designed. The construction is reaching a 90% made on-site, with local materials and built exclusively by Yucatec masons and carpenters, a sort of modern reinterpretation of what could mean vernacular architecture. Made of massive materials that do not require special treatments or maintenance, accepting aging and time as part of the architecture process, the house has been conceptualized to end up one day covered by a new coat of materiality: a layer of patina.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSave this picture!© Rory GardinerProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding Green: Denmark’s New Class of Sustainable ArchitectureArchitecture NewsX-Architects Proposes “Architectural Constellation” for a Desert Hideaway Resort in KSAArchitecture News Share 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Mexico Merida House / Ludwig Godefroy Architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Merida House / Ludwig Godefroy ArchitectureSave this projectSaveMerida House / Ludwig Godefroy Architecture “COPY” Architects: Ludwig Godefroy Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Year: center_img Houses Copy•Mérida, Mexico “COPY” Photographs Projects CopyAbout this officeLudwig Godefroy ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMeridaOn FacebookMexicoPublished on May 07, 2020Cite: “Merida House / Ludwig Godefroy Architecture” [Casa Mérida / Ludwig Godefroy Architecture] 07 May 2020.

He left a widow and three children.The committee’s aim was to raise enough to fund a specialist research nurse at the Centre for Clinical Haematology at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, a goal which they have successfully beaten.As well as former colleagues, the appeal attracted support from the cricketing world: Payne had played for a number of cricket teams around the region. Howard Lake | 28 November 2017 | News How they raised the fundsPat Murphy, Anthony Monk, Andy Hickinbottom, Tom Moss, Malcolm Richards and Cure Leukaemia co-founder Graham Silk formed a committee to raise funds through a series of online auctions, raffles and charity events.Drawing on their professional contacts they managed to secure a host of ‘money can’t buy’ items for people to bid for. These included:a Match of the Day studio experiencea tour of Monty’s Don’s famous ‘Longmeadow’ gardena coaching session with England cricket star Chris Woakeslunch with Stiliyan Petrov and Martin O’Neill.Murphy said, on behalf of the ‘Andy Payne Fund A Nurse’ committee: “The feeling is bittersweet for us as we would much rather still have our good friend Andy with us but we are so pleased to have surpassed our fundraising target. We wanted to fund something tangible in Andy’s memory and it is heartening to think that patients in similar position to Andy will have access to pioneering treatments for this cruel disease through our funding of a specialist research nurse.“We are eternally grateful to the many people who have helped us source these fantastic auction items, without their generosity we would not have reached our goal. There are too many people to thank and they know who they are!

The ongoing steady decline in foreclosures since reaching their peak in 2010 has resulted in a corresponding decline in the nationwide cash sales share.The cash sales share peaked in January 2011, when nearly half, about 46 point 6 percent, of all residential home sales were all cash. REO sales had the largest share of cash sales for March with about 57 point 2 percent. Resales accounted for about 32 point 9 percent of sales, short sales made up about 30 point 6 percent of cash sales, and new home sales made up about 14 point 4 percent.The results of the Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests conducted by the Federal Reserve on the nation’s 33 largest bank holding companies showed improved capital levels and credit quality, which strengthened their ability to lend during times of severe economic stress, according to the Fed on Thursday afternoon.  The hypothetical severe economic scenario for which the banks were tested would result in about 385 billion dollars in losses for the 33 firms tested.
