Pre-tax profit for the third quarter this year has jumped up to £9.9m, with earnings-per-share rising from an 18p loss last year to a 13p profit for the same period this year.The results also show that the communications provider has slowed its recruitment of new customers, but revenues per customer are up.Total revenues grew 6.4 per cent on 2009, reaching £978m. But the number of new subscribers was down by more than half in some areas, with net additions in TV shrinking 60 per cent and 11 per cent in cable telephony. The results reflect a decision to focus on generating higher-value customers: average revenue per user was up 3.7 per cent to an all-time high of £46.38. For example, the number of subscribers to its two top-tier broadband services has increased by 41 per cent to 708,300, but the rate at which it recruited new broadband users was down 13 per cent on last year. Third-quarter profits also benefited from the £14.4m sale of VMTV to BSkyB, completed in July.In addition to encouraging customers to upgrade their subscriptions, Virgin is aiming to increase its premium service offering by launching ultra-fast broadband. The firm opened pre-registration for the 100Mb line yesterday, claiming it would deliver a service up to ten times faster than the UK average. It also continued its share buyback programme. The firm has already bought back £125m of stock and has board authority for a further £250m.

Housing in Taipei / Chin Architects

At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction in Taipei, Taiwan, we attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to TaipeiCity instead.Save this picture!© Jeffrey ChengRecommended ProductsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsIn response to the urban scale, a horizontal band in white crystallized glass panel clearly defines the residential and the commercial programs. The band then turns vertically to become an urban lighting wall that hopefully will redefine the boundary of Tien Mu area in both day and night. The elevation on the East side uses white cracked-ice glaze mosaic and black stone mosaic to form a modern representation of vertical village on an 80 meter long city wall. The building envelope with various protruding white frames becomes the in-between interface involves an individual with the city. The frames with depth not only provide the necessary sun screen, but the resulting visual artistry also evokes imagination. While the frames embrace and display urban life, they also keep private life away from environment with a proper yet ambiguous distance. On the West side, the service core is expressed by 6 vertical heavy walls with lanterns on top. They lit up at night to enrich the city skyline, and to provide guiding direction for the residents from Zhi Shan MRT station. Save this picture!© Jeffrey ChengProject gallerySee allShow lessWaterfront Kopaszi Dam / T2.a ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSense / Kazutoshi ImanagaArticlesProject locationAddress:111, Taiwan (ROC), Taipei City, Shilin District, Lane 154, Section 7, Zhōngshān North Rd, 6號3樓 Taipei Municipal Library Tien-Mu BranchLocation to be used only as a reference.

Shaped by the pedestrian and traffic flows that surround the building, the mixed-use, multi-residential complex is expected to serve as the gateway of Sydney’s Green Square Town Centre by its completion in 2016.The tower will be formed by two distinctive, continuing loops: the public and residential loop. The first, designed to activate the streetscape, will tilt towards the adjacent Green Square Plaza and ensure solar access. The second, oriented due north, will provide residents with essential amenities and open space, while allowing sun and breezeways to enter into the public loop. A gentle transition will be established via lush garden terraces. “The two loops connect, becoming a seamless and continuous part of the architectural fabric,” described the architects. “The resulting design is one that is fluid, connected, activated and responsive to the urban context of Green Square Town Centre and its desire for a new vision of architecture.”Project gallerySee allShow lessGreen House / Carter Williamson ArchitectsSelected ProjectsInside Johannesburg’s Infamous Ponte City TowerVideosProject locationAddress:Green Square, Alexandria NSW 2015, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Brexit Could Bring Market, Policy Impacts for U.S. Grains

first_img SHARE Britain’s decision last month to leave the European Union could have both market and trade policy effects on the U.S. grain industry, though the U.S. Grains Council says exactly how the change could impact farmers’ bottom lines is among the many unanswered questions. The EU does not import large volumes of U.S. corn due to trade barriers related to biotechnology. Overall, the total value of all types of U.S. feed grain and related products that were exported in the 2014/2015 marketing year was about $745 million. Though the initial grain market impact eased quickly, USGC says follow-on effects on exports could be seen from a stronger U.S. dollar. Markets might also face negative impacts from Brexit on the euro area and, to a lesser extent, the global economy, affecting demand for grain and the meat it produces. However, the largest and longest-term impacts of the Brexit on grains could come from the trade policy arena, not the marketplace.The Grains Council says the vote will put the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership talks between the United States and the European Union in potential jeopardy.Source: NAFB News Service Brexit Could Bring Market, Policy Impacts for U.S. Grains Facebook Twitter Previous articleCountryMark’s Fueling Freedom Raised More than $63,000 to Support Indiana National GuardNext articleIndiana 4th BBQ Cost Less than Year Ago Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 4, 2016 SHARE Home News Feed Brexit Could Bring Market, Policy Impacts for U.S. Grains Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Suspected Potomac River Rapist, who ‘terrorized’ women in ’90s, caught with genetic genealogy

first_imgMontgomery County Department of Police(WASHINGTON) — The suspect behind a string of sexual assaults and one slaying that “terrorized” Washington, D.C., women in the 1990s is now in custody after he was nabbed through the novel investigative tool of genetic genealogy, authorities said.“Between 1991 and 1998 a man terrorized our community as he brutally preyed upon and attacked multiple women across this region,” D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said at a Thursday news conference.Known as the Potomac River Rapist, the suspect — now identified by police as 60-year-old Giles Daniel Warrick — allegedly committed at least eight sexual assaults in Montgomery County, Maryland, and two sexual assaults in Washington, D.C., authorities said.The Potomac River Rapist would cut phone lines, force his way into homes, cover the victims’ heads and sexually assault them, authorities said.It appears the attacks became more violent over time, police said. Among the 10 victims was Christine Mirzayan, a 29-year-old congressional fellow who was sexually assaulted, hit on the head, “brutally beaten” and murdered, Newsham said. The murder weapon was a 73-pound rock, according to the FBI.But the identity of the suspected Potomac River Rapist was unknown for decades, until genetic genealogy came into play, said Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones.Genetic genealogy compares unknown DNA evidence from a crime scene to public genetic databases to identify suspects through their family members who voluntarily uploaded their DNA to those databases.Genetic genealogy has been called a “game-changer” in the effort to crack cold cases. Since the arrest of the suspected “Golden State Killer” in April 2018, about 100 suspects have been identified through the technology, according to CeCe Moore, the chief genealogist at Parabon NanoLabs. Moore, who has appeared as an expert in ABC News “20/20” episodes and has been quoted in ABCNews.com articles, investigated the Potomac River Rapist case among others.Police did not elaborate on which of Warrick’s relatives had voluntarily submitted their DNA to databases. Police also did not disclose how they obtained Warrick’s DNA to confirm the match.Warrick was arrested Wednesday at his home in Horry County, South Carolina, and has been charged with six counts of first-degree rape in Montgomery County, police said. All six of those cases were linked to the same suspect DNA, police said.Warrick is expected to be extradited to D.C. to be charged with first-degree murder and the D.C.-area sexual assaults, Newsham said.Warrick, who had a landscaping company and worked as a utility company contractor, had been living in the D.C. area before recently moving to South Carolina, Jones said.It was not immediately clear when Warrick will appear in court.“Detectives are concerned there may be additional victims in the area given the prolonged period of time that has elapsed involving Giles Daniel Warrick,” Montgomery County police said. “Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Colleges forced to reckon with rising COVID-19 cases

first_imgiStock/smolaw11BY: SOPHIE TATUM, ABC News(CHICAGO) — From converting on-campus labs to designating quarantine dorms, many schools touted extensive safety strategies leading up to students’ return to college campuses.Now that class is back in session, colleges and universities across the country have been forced to reckon with rising COVID-19 case numbers.The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign invested between $6-7 million for a comprehensive COVID-19 initiative that included testing students and faculty twice a week using a saliva test that university scientists developed, said Martin Burke, associate dean of research at the Carle Illinois College of Medicine.But the multi-million-dollar investment was put to the test when the school recently experienced a rapid increase of cases.“It literally was parties on a Thursday or Friday night — maybe Wednesday — or Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night, and then we started seeing the rising cases, you know, three or four days after,” Burke told ABC News.Burke, who is also a chemistry professor at UIUC, said the “overwhelming majority” of students have done a great job, and although the school had modeled for students partying and not wearing masks, a “small minority” of students continued to attend and host parties despite knowing they had tested positive for COVID-19, resulting in a second wave of cases the school did not anticipate.“It was very stressful, and it happened very fast,” Burke said.Following the outbreak, students were asked to limit in-person activities and avoid socializing so the school could try and get the numbers under control, which Burke said made “a huge difference.”“The very good news is, is that because we had this very robust fast frequent testing going on we literally saw it as it was happening,” Burke said. “And we saw those cases rising exactly where and we knew why, yeah so we were able to make immediate corrective actions on multiple fronts.”This week, The University of Arizona announced it was urging students to partake in a 14-day “shelter-in-place” effort to mitigate the spread. As of Monday, there had been a total of 1,408 positive tests since July 31, according to the university’s COVID-19 website.The school’s plan involves testing, tracing and treating, according to the website. Individuals can also download and participate in the campus’ “anonymous exposure” app.“While the vast majority of students, faculty, and staff are following public health guidelines, some among us are choosing not to wear face coverings, congregating in large groups, and failing to isolate when ill,” university President Robert Robbins wrote to individuals on campus.At the University of Arizona’s weekly virtual briefing, Robbins said the move was a “last ditch effort,” asking students to follow the rules “before we have to make some really drastic changes to how we’re dealing with this blatant disregard for public health measures.”“I am telling you that I’m short of saying I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore, because there’s only certain things that I can do,” Robbins said. “But this is part of being a good member of society, to take into account the health of others, not just your individual health and not just your individual desire to go out and have a good time and party.”“So, this is a major problem, we anticipated it would be a problem, we had hoped that we wouldn’t have to begin to institute more draconian measures, but we’re to that point,” he said.Meanwhile, at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, Greek houses became a concern when mitigation testing positivity rates were showing above 50% in some houses, leading the administration to urge students to find new living quarters.During the week of Aug. 31, “the positivity rate among communal living (Greek houses) was 24.56% of 1,421 test results,” while “the positivity rate among residence halls was 3.64% of 4,201 test results,” according to the school’s COVID-19 dashboard.“The positivity rate among Greek-affiliated students who don’t live in their organizations’ houses was 13.7% of 540 test results.”“Back in the spring, everybody from day one said, Greek houses are a concern, because, again, not because there’s anything pejorative or negative about them but that type of living — it’s hard to imagine how it’s going to work out safely,” said Aaron Carroll, the director of surveillance and mitigation for the COVID pandemic at Indiana University, noting the small spaces, limited number of bathrooms and the social aspects.“They’re all friends, they’re all hanging out, they’re all eating together they’re all, you know, and it’s just, so, it is not totally unexpected, but you know … some Greek houses are doing better than others. So, it’s possible, it’s just very, very hard,” he said.But the Greek houses are considered off-campus living, he said, and “we can’t tell people what to do off campus.” The university is continuing to monitor everybody to ensure it doesn’t spill over into the larger population.Despite the spike of cases in the Greek houses, Carroll said he thinks the system is “holding the line” so far.“I feel like a lot of the things we put in place are working. Of course, we’re still working to get the labs up, we have the flu coming, the winter, you know there’s a lot of variables still at play, but, but, yes, I would say that we planned reasonably well and we’re implementing the plan reasonably well,” Carroll said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
