KPMG delegate supports quota whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Sunday 30 January 2011 10:24 pm Share KCS-content RACHEL Campbell, global head of human resources for KPMG and one of the firm’s delegates to the World Economic Forum, said that she supports the conference’s imposition of a quota for women this year. The quota required the event’s main sponsors to bring one female delegate among their five spots. “I’m supportive of the initiative – anything that helps get women access to networks,” said Campbell. “I wish there were more women here without a quota. And I’d have been quite against targets and quotas a few years ago. But seeing the experiences of my female colleagues, I’m becoming firmer in my view.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsapp Tags: NULL
Tuesday 22 February 2011 7:26 pm Show Comments ▼ KCS-content CONSTRUCTION group Morgan Sindall painted a bleak picture of the UK building market yesterday but said it plans to increase its share of the shrinking market in 2011.Morgan Sindall posted a full-year pre-tax profit of £40.7m for 2010, missing consensus forecasts of £46.9m, on a five per cent fall in revenue to £2.102bn. The company, which recently won part of a large tunnelling contract for the £15bn Crossrail project, said underlying pre-tax profit before amortisation and non-recurring items for the year ending was flat at £51.3m.Chairman John Morgan told City A.M.: “I don’t think the order book will grow significantly this year, but I’m confident that we are going to increase market share across the board.”The firm’s order book last year was made up of 60 per cent government work, but Morgan said this had already dropped to 50 per cent and is expected to fall further as the year goes on. “The private sector is coming back, particularly in London,” he said, adding that the firm’s overall market is looking 10 per cent smaller.Morgan Sindall snapped up the bulk of social housing services group Connaught’s troubled assets last year and has finished the year with a cash balance of £149m, up 26 per cent year-on-year.Morgan said the move “was quite a difficult integration for us… Connaught’s contracts were not run as we would have liked”, but said the firm was already seeing modest returns.Margins in the firm’s affordable housing division Lovell, which has taken the Connaught work, rose 0.2 per cent to 4.2 per cent, delivering an operating profit of £16.1m, up eight per cent. Its overall margin rose from two per cent to 2.2 per cent.Morgan Sindall said its order book grew to £3.6bn from £3.2bn last year.RBS analyst Mark Howson said in a note that the firm’s underlying profit was better than expected, with cost savings helping overcome a slower-than-hoped recovery in the firm’s refurbishment business. The FTSE-listed firm’s shares closed down 3.3 per cent at 692.5p yesterday.

En este pasaje, una conspiración de hombres trama la explotación y violación de una mujer joven. Ella fue despojada del poder de hablar y actuar, su padre ignora el crimen, y el destino del violador, no el de la víctima, se lamenta. Es una historia bíblica desprovista de justicia.Por más de dos décadas, las mujeres africanas de comunidades marginadas han estudiado este pasaje de las escrituras utilizando un método llamado estudio bíblico contextual para explorar y hablar sobre el trauma de la violencia sexual en sus propias vidas. Utilizando un manual publicado por la Campaña Tamar (the Tamar Campaign), las mujeres preguntan, “Qué puede hacer la Iglesia para romper el silencio contra la violencia de género”?Es, según los predicadores de antaño, una pregunta convincente. A medida que nuestras sociedades han sido obligados a reconocer nuevamente que las mujeres de todos ámbitos han sufrido trauma tácito a manos de agresores y acosadores masculinos, nos hemos convencido de que la Iglesia Episcopal debe trabajar aún más para crear una iglesia que no sea solo segura, sino también sagrada, humanitaria y digna. Tenemos que comprometernos a tratar a cada persona como un hijo de Dios, que merece dignidad y respeto. También debemos comprometernos a poner fin al sexismo sistémico, la misoginia, y el abuso de poder que afectan a la iglesia, así como corrompen nuestra cultura, instituciones y gobiernos.Igual que nuestras hermanas africanas en fe, debemos crear contextos en cuales las mujeres puedan hablar sobre su trauma tácito, tanto si lo sufrió dentro de la iglesia o en otro lugar. Y debemos hacer más.Nuestra iglesia tiene que examinar su historia y llegar a un entendimiento más amplio de la manera en que manejó o manejó mal los casos de acoso sexual, explotación y abuso a través de los años. Cuando los hechos lo dictan, debemos confesarnos y arrepentirnos de las instancias en que la iglesia, sus ministros o miembros han sido antagónicos o insensibles a las personas—mujeres, niños y hombres—que han sido víctimas de explotación o abuso sexual. Y hay que reconocer que en nuestra iglesia y en nuestra cultura, la explotación sexual de las mujeres es parte del mismo sistema injusto que también causa brechas de género en la remuneración, los ascensos, la salud y el empoderamiento.Creemos que cada uno de nosotros tiene un papel en nuestro arrepentimiento colectivo. Entonces, hoy, les invitamos a unirnos en un Día de Oración el 14 de febrero Miércoles de Ceniza dedicado a meditar en las maneras en que nosotros en la iglesia no hemos apoyado a las mujeres y otras víctimas de abuso y acoso y a considerar, como parte de nuestras disciplinas cuaresmales, cómo podemos redoblar nuestro trabajo para ser comunidades de seguridad que se opongan a la violencia espiritual y física de la explotación y el abuso sexual.Ninguno de nosotros pretende tener toda la sabiduría necesaria para cambiar la cultura de nuestra iglesia y la sociedad en que ministra, y en la Convención General de este verano, queremos escuchar la voz amplia de la iglesia mientras definimos cómo proceder tanto en expiar por el pasado de la iglesia y formar un futuro más justo. Que encontremos en nuestras deliberaciones oportunidades para escucharnos unos a otros, para ser honestos acerca de nuestros propios fracasos y quebrantamientos, y de discernir devotamente las maneras que Dios nos llama a estar con Tamar en todos los lugares donde la encontramos—tanto dentro de la iglesia como más allá de nuestras puertas, las cuales hemos usado con demasiada frecuencia para excluirla.Fielmente,Rvdmo.

With the exception of an estate built for the city council’s housing association, the “Westgarten” represents Stefan Forster’s first major housing project in his hometown Frankfurt. Among the recently established residential buildings in the capital on the Main River5, the Westgarten has special significance.Save this picture!© Jean-Luc ValentinThe building’s ground floor covers the complete area of the site, containing a supermarket and three other stores, and thus securing the basic, local retail infrastructure of the new suburb Frankfurt-Westhafen. On the first floor, the building also provides residents with a shared green space – a garden with a water feature – after which the building is named. Furthermore, the Westgarten is exceptional in its appearance. Breaking the rules in a positive way, its strong, cool and distinguished look resembles the noble residences of Mediterranean cities, while also deriving qualities from the concrete, local environment where it is situated. There are characteristic parallels to the use of formal elements common in the late 1920s and 1930s. The street-facing façade is covered in clinker bricks, which have been arranged in an uneven profile, thus providing a marvellous play of lights and shadows. Light-coloured ledges emphasize the horizontal nature of the building and create a harmonious contrast to the brown clinker. Save this picture!© Jean-Luc ValentinAll of Forster’s maxims – urbanity with a clearly defined, public ground floor zone; a geometrically precise, clearly structured “build”; a real spaciousness of the apartments and their shielded, “inverted” balconies – are all perfectly embodied in the Westgarten.Project gallerySee allShow lessMinimal Complexity / Vlad TenuArticlesHolcim Awards Juries Showcase Leading Experts on SustainabilityArticlesProject locationAddress:Frankfurt, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Last week, representatives from the rural carriers that participate in the Verizon LTE in Rural America program shared information and provided a candid view of their progress as they prepare to launch 4G LTE service to their customers. With two carriers in the program that have already launched 4G LTE networks and four more slated to launch later this year, the 2nd Annual LTE in Rural America Summitproved to be chock full of interactive discussions, updates and lessons learned. One rural carrier equated the rollout to the Field of Dreams adage: Build it and they will come. Participants expressed satisfaction with the program, speculated about what the network would look like in five years and acknowledged that 4G LTE is a new beginning.
