The stake, thought to be around 30 per cent, is a non-controlling interest, and Credit Suisse won’t invest in any of York’s funds. The bank has been in touch with US authorities to ensure the deal complies with the recent Volcker rules, which ban retail banks from taking part in risky operations like hedge funds and private equity. Credit Suisse’s asset management arm will make extra payments based on York’s performance over five years. The New York-based hedge fund, which has offices in London, will retain its top management staff including chief executive and founder Jamie Dinan. Dinan said of the deal: “We see tremendous opportunities in the marketplace for event-driven and credit strategies and we think our ability to capitalise on these opportunities will be enhanced by Credit Suisse’s global reach and resources, particularly in parts of the world where we are increasing our investment activity.”York Capital manages around $14bn and specialises in mergers, acquisitions and distressed assets.

The government rescue led taxpayers to take a nearly 80 per cent stake in the New York-based insurer.AIG spokesman Mark Herr declined to comment.Investors led by the State of Michigan Retirement accused AIG, executives and directors of failing to disclose the risks that AIG had taken on through its portfolio of credit default swaps (CDS) and a securities lending program.Swain wrote that the allegations in the class-action lawsuit were sufficient to suggest there was “a strong inference of fraudulent intent” in how AIG communicated publicly about the risks in the portfolio of credit default swaps.

The Bank of England’s decision to slash interest rates to record lows earlier this year has caused havoc for savers across the country. However, many FTSE 100 shares offer dividend yields of 4%, or more. Compared to the interest rates offered on most savings accounts at the moment, these yields seem incredibly appealing.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 dividend stocks I have my eye on 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…FTSE 100 dividend stocksRio Tinto (LSE: RIO) is the world’s largest iron ore producer. Over the past few years, the company has generated vast amounts of cash from its operations. This money has been used to reduce debt, and some of it has been returned to investors. I reckon this trend is highly likely to continue. Rio has the lowest production costs in the industry, thanks to its economies of scale. This year, the price of iron ore has surged as countries such as China start spending to rekindle economic growth following the pandemic.All of the figures point to the conclusion that a high iron ore price will only be good news for Rio’s bottom line. Considering the firm’s track record of returning additional cash to investors with dividends, I reckon this means shareholders will see increased returns from this FTSE 100 dividend stock in the years ahead. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 6.9%, according to the City. Rising profits As the world tries to rebuild from the pandemic, I reckon the demand for basic construction materials, such as concrete, steel and aggregates, will rise rapidly. That’s why I think steel producer Evraz (LSE: EVR) could also prove to be an attractive income investment for the next few years. City analysts appear to agree. After reporting a profit of $326m for 2019, analysts have pencilled in a net income figure of $812 for 2020. The City is projecting further growth in 2021. Analysts expect the firm to report a net income of $957m for the period. Based on these projections, the FTSE 100 dividend stock looks cheap. For example, it’s selling at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) of 7.2. Then there’s the stock’s dividend yield. Based on profit targets for the years ahead, the City’s projections suggest the stock provides investors with a yield of 7.2% for the current financial year. I reckon there’s a good chance the group will hit this target. For the past three years, Evraz has consistently beaten dividend expectations. Assuming the firm can produce the profits expected for the year, I see no reason why it will miss the City’s targets for the next few years. Therefore, I’m excited about the outlook for this FTSE 100 dividend stock. With its track record of returning cash to investors, as well as projected profit growth, I think the shares could yield large total returns for investors in the years ahead. 2 FTSE 100 dividend stocks I’d buy right now I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Austin church embraces graffiti to raise ‘spiritual awareness’

Hope to see a followup story. Comments are closed. December 14, 2011 at 10:41 am Hmmm….what is the significance beyond the initial shock factor… other than garnering cheap attention? Think the mailman is attracted to this congregation because it does graffitti…? I’d rather know what this church does to care for the poor, disadvantaged, excluded, homeless. [Episcopal Diocese of Texas] St. David’s Episcopal Church in Austin is taking a new approach to entering the Christmas season. Church leaders have commissioned a high school parishioner to “tag” the outside of the Church with graffiti each of the four Advent weeks leading to Christmas. What started on the retaining wall in front of the church, will wrap around the side making the on-going message visible to all in the downtown area during this season.“The first day it was up, the Rangers came to ask us if we were vandalized,” said the Rev. David Boyd, Rector. “We told them that we weren’t, but the fact they noticed is exactly what we want. Everyone from our coffee shop customers to the mailman want to know what this is all about.”The first message read “Light is home in you,” and it was painted by parishioner Thu Ley Wah, a senior in high school. Wah was born in Mae la refugee camp in 1993, and now attends Garza High School in Austin after transferring from International High School.St. David’s is participating in a program that is aimed at heightening spiritual awareness this time of year. The theme, “Light Interrupts”, is intended to interrupt everyday life and is being supported with a daily blog called Light Interrupts, which is authored by another parishioner, Janet Davis.The first entry explained the vision to followers:When light first enters darkness, we often respond with blinks and squints. We can’t quite see clearly. So, if you are a bit uncomfortable, blinking and squinting, questioning and wondering what in the world might be next, congratulations! You have now entered a holy space of transformation also known as the season of Advent, a moment in time when God interrupts ordinary time with extraordinary Light and hope.Davis is the author of two books on spirituality, along with a third book soon to be released in Spring 2012, My Own Worst Enemy: How to Stop Holding Yourself Back.Within days of the site being launched, it was viewed 1,500 times with hundreds of those viewers connecting through Facebook users who re-posted the link.“Not everyone was comfortable with the idea of us spray painting the wall around the Church,” said the Rev. Billy Tweedie. “But not everyone is comfortable with talking about God or Jesus, and that’s the point: To start the conversation.”To learn more, visit the blog here.

Andrews says: December 7, 2011 at 10:26 pm Congratulations. You have now invited every tagger and graffiti “artist” to visit St. David’s wall as soon as the official Christmas season is over. I would think that you would find more responsible ways to get your message across for your new members to join. I was a member of St. David’s decades ago, until the bishop gave, as I recall, $250,000 to the Black Panthers organization of that day. Too bad for the parishioners who prefer the “old way” of worshiping, showing respect and dignity. Besides, isn’t that beautiful old building a historical structure? I don’t think adding graffiti is in keeping with a historical landmark designation. Pity.

A grilling legend is returning to Apopka for your Memorial Day…

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Excited to follow the Grill whisperer while he/she is in town. Yes, uncovering the BBQ Grill. Please enter your name here May 26, 2018 at 10:30 amcenter_img Editor’s Note – The Grill Whisperer is a fly-by-night grilling expert that travels the world in a constant search of grilling techniques, recipes, and spices to perfect his craft. Occasionally, he lands in Apopka where he writes an exclusive article for The Apopka Voice. He will not allow any changes or edits to his column, so if his article is too long, grammatically incorrect, or in some way offensive, The Apopka Voice takes no responsibility. GW will be in town for the Memorial Day weekend, but beyond that, there is no telling. This is the first of a three-part series that will guide you into a Memorial Day Barbecue legend.——————————————————Good morning Apopka. You don’t know me, but I’m the person that will make you a grilling legend in just a few short columns. I could do it faster, but The Apopka Voice has a word-count on their articles, so it may take a little longer. Not a big fan of editors, but you work with who you have to.Today I’m going to tell you a short cautionary parable, and give you the first rule of grilling. That’s all. If you grasp the first and follow directions on the second, then tomorrow morning I will reward you.Fair enough? Then let’s get started…——————————————————There once was a yacht captain…let’s call him Mark…Captain Mark took on double duty one day and decided to be captain of the grill. The Grill Whisperer offered to take on the job, but Mark insisted this was his grill and that he would cook the steaks.And a primary rule is that a man’s grill is his castle, so the Grill Whisperer stood down.He set the temperature for nuclear high and threw on a dozen steaks. Two minutes later, the fat from the steaks dripped into the flames and started a five-alarm fire in the grill.The steaks were charred beyond any rational recognition by the time Captain Mark returned from steering the yacht through the challenging straits of the Intercoastal Waterway at about one mile per hour. Seeing his T-Bones in peril, the good captain attempted to turn them by stabbing them with a fork, but the grill was angry and punished him with flames that set the hairs on his arms ablaze. He promptly backed away from his white whale…a beaten man.Eventually, Captain Mark regained his composure…his arms no longer smoking…and turned the grill off. He pried the steaks off the white-hot grates. He looked at his guests.. cowering away in different corners of the yacht.“The steaks are ready,” he said meekly.Don’t let this grill be yours!When someone asked Mark how they were cooked, he said “Pittsburgh style”… which the Grill Whisperer assumed meant destroyed on the outside and sushi on the inside.The moral of the story is unless you want your steaks ruined and your arms medium rare, learn the fundamentals of grilling. Captain Mark blamed the grill for the disaster that left his guests hungry and smoke inhalated. “That grill has always been prone to flare-ups,” he said. “It has a problem.”Truth is…the Grill Whisperer saw it as a grill with a person-problem.I told you that little anecdote not to scare you out of grilling, but rather as a cautionary tale. The Grill Whisperer will not let this happen to you. I have set the wheels in motion for you to prepare the greatest backyard feast anyone in your inner circle has ever witnessed. Follow my directions and they will be telling stories of your grilling expertise for generations.Grilling, like most forms of cooking, is more art than science…and even though the Grill Whisperer didn’t do well in either subject, he sees himself as Rembrandt once he fires up a grill.You can follow the rules I set out for you, but in the end, it will be your skill, style, and creativity that propel you to the level of a grill master.The first step of grilling expertise is not sexy, exciting or even fun, but it is perhaps the most important tip you will ever receive. Think of yourself as Ralph Macchio in The Karate Kid and I am that annoying little guy telling you to wax his car. We all knew there was sage advice in what the man was telling Macchio, so know what I’m telling you is too. But unlike Pat Morita (Mr. Miyagi), I will give you a reward tomorrow if you follow my advice today.Here it is:CLEAN YOUR GRILL!Last summer you were going to do this. Perhaps in early spring, you had slated time. It’s easy to justify not cleaning your grill, but it must be done.Just to slam the point home, GW is including a before/after clean grill photo.No judgment necessary, just do it.A dirty grill flares up too often. It smokes too much and leaves a bad flavor on the food. You can follow every grilling rule perfectly and still have a bad outing if your grill is caked in grease.Keeping your grill clean will reduce all of these problems. This means more than turning your grill on high for 10 to 15 minutes before or after you use it. Your grill is not a self-cleaning oven. Food that falls into the grill, ash deposits and other buildup remains until you clean it all out. Take out the grates and burner covers and thoroughly clean your grill. Trust GW on this…you will notice a difference.So today…the day before one of the biggest grilling days of the year I want you to clean your grill thoroughly. If you do I will publish a column tomorrow with a blueprint for a grilling feast that will make you a legend among your family and friends.I’ll check back with you tomorrow Apopka. I’ll have your grocery list ready. 1 COMMENT LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Reply You have entered an incorrect email address!

5 Delaware Lofts / El Dorado

first_img Area:  46150 m² Photographs Projects 5 Delaware Lofts / El DoradoSave this projectSave5 Delaware Lofts / El Dorado CopyLoft•Kansas City, United States Photographs:  Mike Sinclair Text description provided by the architects. As with many urban centers, Kansas City has a wonderful collection of turn of the century low to mid-rise buildings within the urban core. It is the re-use of older buildings that has promoted the ideal of loft living, having the city as a personal backyard. While many existing buildings still need to be renovated, 5 Delaware represents a new approach – a new, modern structure sensitively placed in one of the numerous empty lots downtown.More photographs, drawings, and project description of 5 Delaware Lofts by el dorado following the break.Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair Recommended ProductsDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensSeveral years ago city officials along with the local development community seized an opportunity to revitalize the urban core. Through local, state, and federal incentive programs local developers, architects, planners, and municipal officials embarked on a massive effort to re-build the heart of the city. The results have been impressive. Over $3 billion dollars of investment has provided the creation of 15,000 new residents, over 99,000 new office workers, and hundreds of retail establishments. While similar efforts are occurring in other mid-western cities, Kansas City has been especially fortunate to have numerous local developers committed to the residential component of this successful venture. This commitment stems from the desire to re-energize downtown. A strong residential community supports this goal.Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair The site for this project is situated in the historic River Market area of downtown, within a few hundred feet of the bluffs that overlook the Missouri River. It is a corner lot at the south end of the block, sharing magnificent urban views with a variety of cafés, businesses and lofts. It is the vibrancy of the surrounding River Market neighborhood that drew the client to develop a project in this area.Save this picture!site planThe clients wanted  a new structure that would provide a unique urban living experience. Aesthetically, they asked the architects to create a building for buyers desiring sophisticated architecture. They offered the shell and each tenant was given the opportunity to custom design each interior loft space. Requirements for the project included: covered and secured parking, maximizing the lot area, capturing the views, working within a construction budget of $68 / ft. and adhering to a 14 month design and construction timeline. Most importantly, el dorado’s goal was to create a dialogue between existing fabric and modern infill.Save this picture!sectionEl dorado embraced all the client’s desires and constraints by establishing an aggressive but methodical design process. This emphasized a collaborative relationship with not just the consultant team but also the client and the general contractor. The first step was to study the potential of the parking to residential unit ratio for the site. Fortunately, the site topography and lot dimensions worked well for an underground parking garage accessible from the alley on the east side and netting 23 parking stalls. The client determined that in order to create a higher end living environment, the project should comprise 13 units. Subsequent layout studies focused on how to arrange these units in a manner that adhered to the goals of the project. Site constraints determined that the common corridor should be placed on the north side and the units to be facing east, west, and south. The structural design quickly developed into a simple column grid that corresponded to the parking requirements below and then extruded upward through the third level. The fourth level was pulled back off the property line in order to create large outdoor rooftop patios.Save this picture!fourth floor planThe architects then explored multiple structural systems choosing cast-in-place concrete as the most suitable system. It was decided to utilize a two-way reinforced slab that would allow for flexible floor plates and a clean unobstructed ceiling surface. Concrete also permitted us to honestly express the material and the structural diagram on both the interior and the exterior of the building. This diagram was then articulated by utilizing recessed infill panels in a series of alternating opaque and transparent zones. These zones consisted of three materials intended to differentiate the common spaces and the residential spaces. Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair The first was a corrugated metal siding on the north, then wrapping around to the east and west elevations. The siding was also used to articulate the common corridors on the north elevation and provided us with an economical sheathing system. The second material was an aluminum storefront glazing system incorporating sliding operable doors and windows. These windows were used to express the structural diagram and provide each unit with optimal views of the city, creating an abundance of natural light. The third material was a natural stained Mangaris wood siding on the south of the building, wrapping the east and west elevations. This wood was used to create a warm contrast to the concrete, aluminum, and metal siding. All three materials converge on the east and west elevations creating a recessed pedestrian entry on west, vehicular entry on east, and porches above each entry. As a finishing touch, el dorado fabricated and installed the guardrails, roof deck dividers, and entry awning themselves.Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair The surrounding neighborhood is comprised of brick paved sidewalks and tree grates placed every thirty feet. When it came time to integrate the sidewalk and landscaping design the architects followed a similar logic to the building. El dorado decided to maintain brick as the paving for the sidewalk for continuity but used the landscaping as an opportunity to accentuate components of the building design. On the west end we created two planting areas flanking the entry vestibule. The northern planting area was pulled out to the street and we used a combination of three intimately scaled red and white bud trees. South of the entry we kept the landscaping tight to the building and used only indigenous prairie grasses and junipers. The south side of the building demanded a slightly different approach. In order to soften the texture of the foundation wall we inset portions of the wall and planted a continuous strip of densely packed with Virginia Creeper vines. Finally, el dorado placed columnar maple trees in front of the wood panels so as to not compromise the views from within the unit.Save this picture!© Mike Sinclair Project gallerySee allShow lessBIG wins the International Competition to design a new Waste-to-Energy plantArticlesBruder Klaus Field Chapel / Peter ZumthorArticlesProject locationAddress:510 Avenida Cesar E Chavez, Kansas City, MO 64108, USALocation to be used only as a reference.
