Franklin Templeton has entered into a conditional agreement to acquire RFM from Investec, which manages about £880m in UK equities, and is a small part of Rensburg Sheppards, which was bought earlier in the year by Investec.RFM chief executive Alex Brotherstone said the deal would give the firm’s fund managers global distribution opportunities. But he was unable to give details of his own future: “I’m keen to stay around and will work very closely with Jamie to see how we can expand. At the moment I remain joint chief executive until the group is integrated”.Meanwhile, Investec said operating profit totalled £228.15m in the six months to 30 September, up 5.6 per cent from £215.9m a year earlier. Excluding a £46m profit made in the same period last year on the repurchase of debt, profits were 34 per cent higher. It added net interest income totalled £321.17m, compared with £297.36m a year earlier. Meanwhile, bad debt charges totalled £122.85m, compared with £134.29n a year earlier.The investment bank and asset manager said the regulatory environment remained challenging, but activity levels were starting to improve. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Li’s investment group Cheung Kong Infrastructure is thought to have outbid PPL Corporation, the power producer that bought E.ON’s US business last November for $7.6bn (£4.7bn). Li’s offer is thought to be more than £3.5bn, and could be announced in the next week if Germany-based E.ON accepts, said a source familiar with the sale.Li bought French power firm EDF’s UK networks last July for £5.8bn, using CKI and other subsidiaries including the Li Ka-Shing Foundation. He also owns stakes in Northern Gas Networks, Southern Water and retailer Superdrug.E.ON put its UK power grid up for sale late last year as part of its plan to dispose of €15bn (£12.8bn) of assets by the end of 2013 in order to reduce debts. The UK business delivers power to more than 5m customers across the Midlands.A spokesperson for E.ON declined to comment, while Cheung Kong Infrastructure and PPL Corporation could not be reached yesterday.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – San Pedro Sula, Honduras] Episcopal schools in the Diocese of Honduras not only have a role in moving the church toward self-sustainability; they also play a role in transforming communities.“Children profit from education, teachers are employed, students receive an Episcopal Church education, which is also part of our evangelism program,” said the Rev. Canon Lura Kaval, the diocese’s canon for development and an Episcopal Church-appointed missionary.Schools are a main source of income for the diocese; it operates seven, faith-based bilingual schools serving 1,500 students from prekindergarten through 11th grade, the final grade level required in Honduras.“As a whole they are in the black; some of them are in better shape than others, but all are headed in the right direction with great potential for growth,” said Kaval,For instance, at St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Tegucigalpa, the Rev. Canon Joe Rhodes and his wife, Tina, missionaries sent by the Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders, are working to bring the school toward profitability.“We have 158 students now, we need 200 to be profitable,” explained Rhodes to a group from St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in DeLand, Florida, who visited in March during a trip to explore potential partnerships.Longtime supporters of the diocese, the Rhodes over the years have led many short-term mission teams to Honduras while Joe Rhodes served as the rector of Holy Spirit Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They have served the school for the last 18 months.Bishop Lloyd Allen founded St. Mary’s School in 1994 while serving St. Mary’s Church; the bishop personally asked the Rhodes to move to Tegucigalpa to assist the school full time.The Diocese of Honduras operates seven, faith-based bilingual schools serving 1,500 students from prekindergarten through 11th grade. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSIn recent years, Allen has worked to focus the diocese’s attention on achieving self-sustainability by 2019; in addition to the diocese’s self-sustainability plan, the schools have a separate strategic aimed at self-sufficiency.As part of the plan, administrators are working toward international accreditation with the help of Steven Robinson, president of the Southern Association of Independent Schools, a U.S.-based accrediting agency.“The schools there are really fascinating and I think they serve a tremendous purpose, some of the schools have a long way to go, but the flagship, [El] Buen Pastor, in San Pedro Sula, is probably eligible now if not close,” said Robison, in a telephone interview with ENS.Accreditation at its core means a school is fulfilling its mission; and that a school is financially sustainable and has good governance, explained Robinson.“It [accreditation] doesn’t mean all schools are equal; that’s largely dependent on the resources they have,” said Robinson. “It means they are serving the mission they set out to serve.”A young girl prays during Sunday school at St. Peter’s by the Sea Episcopal Church in Brick Bay in Roatán, Honduras. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSAt the heart of each Episcopal school’s mission is a commitment to Christian education and the diocese has committed to translating from English to Spanish the Episcopal Children’s Curriculum, developed by Virginia Theological Seminary, so that it can share it with others looking for Christian educational resources in Spanish, said Kaval. The diocese plans to begin using the curriculum in both the schools and its Sunday schools in the fall.Robinson became involved with the Episcopal schools in Honduras in 2010 when he met Andrea Baker at a National Association of Episcopal Schools conference in San Antonio, Texas.“She saw my nametag and asked, ‘do you accredit? And can we talk?’” said Robinson.Baker invited Robinson to visit Honduras, which he did. “I fell in love with the schools and the work of Bishop Allen,” he said, adding that what the diocese is doing with its schools is “at the heart of what education should be.”Since then, Robinson has been involved with the schools and this summer plans to run professional development workshops in Honduras. It’s a matter of working with the schools to understand where they are, where they need to be, and assisting them as they grow toward accreditation, he said.El Buen Pastor, the school Robinson referred to in San Pedro Sula, was founded in 1984 and has since grown to more than 500 students grades pre-k through 11. Some of El Buen Pastor’s students have gone on to attend universities in the United States.Other schools, like St. John’s Episcopal School in Siguatepeque, a small town in the central mountains, are just getting started.Rick Harlow, the diocese’s project manager, and Episcopal Church-appointed missionary, explained that the school serves 48 students grades prekindergarten through fourth grade, next year the school will add fifth grade and more space for prekindergarten students. The school currently has an 80-student capacity.Episcopal schools operate on the same 10-month calendar as schools in the United States, not the public schools’November to February calendar, normal for the country’s private schools. For this reason, the schools tend to grow from year to year as students graduate from one grade level to the next, and from new students enrolling in prekindergarten and kindergarten.One way to recruit new students is to make the school more appealing. In March, for instance, construction was underway on a horseshoe-shaped driveway where parents can drop off and pick up their children in front of the school instead of on the busy street in front of the church.The driveway and additional classroom space constitute the first phase of construction; the second phase will include a cafeteria and kitchen and additional classrooms.“We have to work year by year by year with the resources available,” said Harlow, adding that teams from churches in the United States have thus far helped with the school building’s construction and there’s still a need.Not far from St. John’s, also in Siguatepeque, the Rev. Vaike Madisson de Molina started a first-aid clinic that three years later has turned into a nursing school recognized by the Ministry of Health. In 2009, Allen told his clergy they’d need to look at their communities and create something to move their missions toward self-sustainability, so de Molina, inspired by Florence Nightingale’s legend, turned to healthcare.The Nightingale Centro Episcopal de Formación de Auxiliar de Enfermería opened in December 2011 and graduated its first 14 students in December 2013.The Rev. Vaike Madisson de Molina shows architectural renderings for the nursing school to the Rev. Canon Lura Kaval, the dioceses canon for development. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSGiven the school’s successes, de Molina has plans for a two-story building that will house classrooms and a laboratory alongside her church, San Bartolomé Apóstol, moving the school out of the parish hall.“This project, I love it,” she said during an interview in her home. “I think Jesus Christ is happy … some members of the church are even now students.”De Molina chose the nursing school, she said, partly because she likes the story of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, which she feels fits nicely with the history of the Anglican Church, but also because she recognized a need for a permanent medical clinic in the community. And she saw the school as a way to give women, many of them single mothers, a means of supporting themselves.Josselin Flores, 18, is one such student. Flores works at the church and studies at the nursing school, while her mother cares for her 18-month-old baby.“I want to have a better life and to care of others,” said Flores in an interview at the church.Sixty percent of Honduras’7.9 million people live at the poverty line, according to World Bank statistics. The average adult has 6.5 years of education, according to United Nations Development Program data.Founding an Episcopal university in Honduras is a long-range goal of the bishop, especially in a post-9/11 world where it has become increasingly difficult for students to secure visas to study in the United States, and the currency exchange rate between the Honduran Lempira and the U.S. dollar puts the cost out of reach for most students coming from a low-middle income country.“Not only is the bishop committed to self-sufficiency model of empowerment rather than dependency … the schools not only play a tremendous part it that, but through education the Episcopal Church is in a position to change a nation,” said Robinson.From his experience and travels, Robinson hasn’t seen another independent schools system poised for such a high return on investment.“I’m very blessed and fortunate to work with almost 400 of best schools in the world, including 40 Episcopal schools, travel the world and talk on a variety of issues,” he said. “I don’t know of any place where good, strong Episcopal schools could have an impact on the entire nation. Honduras could be impacted by the school system and I don’t say that lightly.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Manjunath & CoDesign Team:Sandeep J, Vimal Jain, Manoj Ladhad, SavithaCity:BangaloreCountry:IndiaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Anand JajuText description provided by the architects. Located in dense urban neighbourhood of Wilson garden, Bangalore the site came as a surprise to us as it was flanked in the west by more than half an acre of wooded garden of the neighbours. The dense plantation of trees in that garden gives one the feeling of being in the suburb or near a forest. The 6000 square feet site for the house was earlier a part of this neighbours land and is marked by the presence of mature trees. Being in the site gave us the feeling of being enveloped and sheltered by the trees. What catches your attention is the play of light through branches and leaves, which is quite dramatic. The other aspect was that the large part of the site was made up of loose, but large rocks. The design was driven by this character of the site where the idea was about a porous structure that absorbed and internalized this innate quality of the place. Save this picture!© Anand JajuThe idea evolved into a notion of a pavilion absorbing the landscape above and as an excavated cave like space below. This idea supported the elaborate program, which was a five bedroom house with exclusive spaces for entertainment which included a swimming pool, home theatre and a spa. The pavilion accommodated the living spaces and the bedrooms, while the cave accommodated the entertainment spaces and the pool. It was raised to address issues of privacy, parking and the hard top strata. This raising also helped the spaces get better exposure to the wooded landscape along the western edge, allowing us to literally borrow it as a part of the experience. Location of trees within the site are used to align the geometries of spaces, where they become key elements informing the experience. Bedrooms were located along the western edge, being in the west also meant one had to deal with sun and privacy. The trees provided the first level of shading followed by the designed movable vertical fins. This allowed the occupants to control amount of light and privacy required while enjoying the views, giving the building a dynamic façade. The fins are detailed to create shadows leading to textures softening the edge and lending a sense of depth to it. Living and dining occupies the next layer after the bedrooms they both are separated by the puja room and hydraulic glass lift enclosure. Save this picture!SectionThe living opens to a large garden created along the northern edge, which is further defined by the neighbouring structures abutting this edge and in the north and the east giving it the character of a courtyard. Water bodies are introduced into the house as thermal regulators one flanks the living and the other is between two bedrooms aligned to the tree in the site along the western edge. The double height glass volume housing the water body integrates with outdoors by bringing the views of the woods into the inner part of the building. The water also creates a foreground for the dining capturing the sky and surroundings through reflections. Being in the dining room also orients one to sculptural trunk of the rain tree framed by the southern wall. The trunks of this tree are allowed to invade various parts of the house, one goes through the kitchen and the other goes through toilet giving the space it’s unique character. The living and dining are double height spaces integrating the upper bedrooms with the living levels below. The living level visually connects with the entertainment or the cave like space through a cut out alongside the kitchen. Modulation of light to this lowermost level brings about the experience of the den like space. Light filters through the strategically located sky lights, some located in the water bodies at the upper level. The materiality at each of the levels amplifies the idea of the pavilion and the cave. The white plastered surfaces and the yellow marble at the upper level add to the lightness of the pavilion volume. Black textured granite and stone grit are used to render the lower cave like volume. Being in any part of the house one is subtly reminded of the nature of the place and its changing character. The design becomes more about experiences than the form alone. The created spaces allow for contemplation and also socializing, giving opportunities for families to come together celebrating the place and life.

Workers World Party celebrates the indomitable fighting spirit of masses of workers and oppressed peoples who are marching on May 1, International Workers’ Day.May Day — born in the class struggle for justice — continues today in the global rising of millions against exploitation imposed by transnational capitalism.This day of workers began in the United States on May 1, 1886, when a nationwide strike, initially called by the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions (later the American Federation of Labor) demanded an 8-hour working day. As Martha Grevatt, WW editor and longtime autoworker, wrote in a March 23, 2012, article: “About a quarter of a million took part in many cities, but Chicago, with its militant, left-wing labor movement, had the largest demonstration. There, tens of thousands laid down their tools, and women and men poured into the streets. The demonstrations continued past May 1, and on May 3 police attacked and six workers were killed.“The next day a protest over the killings was held in Haymarket Square. A bomb was thrown, a policeman was killed, and a struggle broke out that left seven police and four workers dead. Eight workers’ leaders were convicted of murder, five of them sentenced to death. Four were hanged [in 1887] and one reportedly committed suicide.”The deaths of those who became known as the Haymarket Martyrs inspired the Socialist (or Second) International to designate May 1 as International Workers’ Day in 1889, creating an international day of fiery militancy and solidarity. After Haymarket, the U.S. state apparatus launched widespread reprisals against immigrants, as well as against organizers perceived to be “reds” — anarchists, socialists or communists.But these im/migrant-radical connections were not imaginary. Of Haymarket’s eight leaders convicted of murder, seven were immigrants — six from Germany and one from England. They brought highly developed labor organizing skills — both tactics and theory — with them when they came to the U.S. The eighth leader, Chicago Typographical Union Secretary Albert Parsons, was Alabama born. A former Confederate soldier, he pursued a path that present-day white workers should emulate. He turned his back on white-supremacist former slave owners and embraced multinational, anti-racist worker solidarity.His spouse, who moved with him from Texas to Chicago where they became organizers, was Lucy Gonzalez Parsons, an African, Indigenous and Mexican woman who devoted her life to fighting poverty, racism, sexism and capitalism.Lessons of the first May DayThe lessons from that first May Day remain relevant today — the imperative need for global worker interconnection and multinational solidarity.In the U.S., we are again seeing attacks on im/migrant workers and on union organizing. The federal government has set up concentration camps for migrants, including their children. Federal agencies and state legislatures have found new ways to incapacitate unions.The mobility and power of multinational capitalism have grown exponentially, increasing the offshoring and outsourcing of jobs and pitting workers in different countries — and within the same country — against each other.But, with globalization, the power of the international, multinational working class is growing. The number of workers worldwide has more than doubled between 1990 and 2016, from 1.5 billion to 3.2 billion. The number of women in the global labor force has grown across all income levels. Meanwhile, more than 2 billion people work in the informal or “precarious” sector, with no legislative or union safety net.Globalization means increased communication within this massive class bloc. We saw this last November when 20,000 Google tech workers poured out of 40 offices around the world in a rolling strike. They made history by building solidarity among full-time workers, temporary workers, vendors and contractors, and by pressing for an end to sexist and racist practices by their transnational boss.In the U.S., May Day emerged once more in 2005, in a protest called by class-conscious Black labor unionists in the Million Worker March Movement. They emphasized the need for workers to fight in their own name, independent of big-business political parties. Then in 2006, migrant workers, led by Latinx organizers, used May Day as a rallying point against racist anti-immigrant legislation. This general strike shut down parts of the U.S., bringing May Day back with a roar.The tide of class struggle continues to rise. Massive education worker strikes began in 2017 in West Virginia and continue, from kindergartens to colleges. Up against global austerity, education workers are not only defending themselves as workers, but are advancing the right of children of color, migrant children, children with disabilities and rural children to have access to quality public education.More U.S. workers, from teachers to hotel workers to fast food workers, took part in strikes and other work stoppages in 2018 than in all the previous 30 years. These actions were most often led by women and other gender-oppressed people, im/migrants and people of color.‘May Day every month!’As the global ruling class attempts to divide and conquer the global working class with racism and bigotry, let us rally together in a “May Day every month!”Workers World Party is endorsing a global campaign for monthly Worker Solidarity Days, militant actions that boldly assert: “No Walls in the Workers’ Struggle!”Every community and every workplace has some point of struggle. Now is the time for solidarity. The struggle is rising!Ultimately, May Day should be every day!For more information on Worker Solidarity Days, visit workersolidarity.net.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
