It also plans to bolster its investment bank by bringing in more staff for equity capital markets, fixed income and currency trading in Europe and Asia.Pauline Egan, London head of RBC Wealth Management, said: “Four years ago our wealth management business employed 70 people and today we have almost 180. What we think stands out is the strength and stability of our name. We are a secure bank and we have come through the financial crisis in good shape.”Egan’s comments came as senior RBC figures raised a glass to a century in the Square Mile. The institution, founded in Nova Scotia in 1864, opened its first UK office on Princes Street in September 1910 with four employees. The group now has around 1,400 staff in the City in total.RBC, which manages C$240bn (£146.9bn) of client assets globally, has hired 1,100 people around the world in the past 12 months.Despite a tightening regulatory environment and the impending annual levy on banks’ balance sheets, chief executive John Burbidge used the opportunity to affirm the organisation’s enthusiasm for the UK. He said: “RBC remains committed to London and to growing our franchise across Europe and Asia, where we see significant opportunities.”FAST FACTS | royal bank of CanadaThe lender began as the?Merchants Bank, financing the fishing and timber industries of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the 1860s.Between 1995 and 2001, then-boss John Cleghorn turned RBC into a multi-services bank.

Sam Warburton talks team-mates

Posted On Jun 23 2021 by

first_imgBest manners Myself. I always want to be polite. It goes back to my mum and dad always telling me to say please and thank you.Read our exclusive interview with Sam Warburton in the June edition of Rugby World – he talks Lions, captaincy and criticism. Don’t forget to buy your copy – it’s on sale now. Worst with ladies I don’t know. I don’t go on many nights out– I’m a goody two shoes! If it was the best, it’d be Mike Phillips hands down. We can’t take him anywhere, girls always come up to him.Mr Grumpy: Gethin JenkinsBiggest whinger Gethin Jenkins – I don’t even have to think about that one. I was talking to Neil Jenkins about what Gethin was like ten years ago. He said he was more of a sapper back then than now!Coolest car Mike turned up in an Aston Martin once – that was pretty cool. Shane Williams had a ridiculous car – a Jaguar XK Coupe.Worst music tastes Gethin’s into some terrible dance music. Alun Wyn Jones loves classics from the likes of Barry Manilow and will sing along to Sixties and Seventies tunes. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Red-letter day: Sam Warburton will lead a squad containing 14 other Welshman on the Lions tour this summerSAM WARBURTON was announced as Lions captain last week and will face a big challenge to bring together players from four nations as they head to Hong Kong and Australia. Banter is sure to be key to that bonding process and the flanker can certainly fulfil that brief – as he does here when describing his Wales team-mates…Luscious locks: RobinsonThe vainest We call Harry Robinson ‘Justin Bieber’. He’s got really curly hair, but he uses straighteners on the front flick.Worst dresser After seeing Harry wearing a vest in Nando’s – he posted the photo on Twitter – maybe him.Biggest appetite Huw Bennett. He has absolutely massive plates of food.Worst dancer That could be me – I’m pretty terrible – but I’ll say Jamie Roberts. He just sways and is really cheesy.Best dancer Aled Brew and Dan Lydiate.

Wales thrash England by record score to retain Six Nations title

Posted On Jun 18 2021 by

first_imgSaturday Mar 16, 2013 Wales thrash England by record score to retain Six Nations title Wales produced a thrilling attacking display as they achieved their biggest ever Six Nations victory over England, scoring two great tries in the second half. Man of the Match Justin Tipuric played a large part in all things good on the night. The first half was a frantic and tense affair that added weight to the theory that the Millennium Stadium roof should always be closed when the weather is poor outside.The two sides went into the halftime break fairly evenly poised at 9-3 to Wales, but a second half demolition job inflated the score and put pay to England’s determinded Grand Slam ambitions.Alex Cuthbert scored the two tries for the home side, one with a great wingers finish and the other after flanker Tipuric put him away after a big sprint down field.“It is a bit unreal really, it is a dream to be honest,” Tipuric told the BBC post match. “We played so well in front of a great crowd and our boys were outstanding and worked so hard for each other. We know what we can do and we have been ready since Monday, and to turn up Saturday and with such a great performance… we are chuffed to bits.”Wales started the competition poorly, going into it with a string of defeats then losing to Ireland in their opening fixture, but bounced back well despite plenty of criticism from all corners.“We had a lot of bad media but I think it gave us a bit of a kick up the backside,” Tipuric added.England’s hopes of a first Grand Slam in a decade were crushed, while Wales achieved their second consecutive tournament win, with some players clearly sticking their hands up for Lions selection.– Congratulations to Wales.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. This project is located in an inner-city suburb of Melbourne, Australia, and provides a response to the difficulty of designing a house to a client’s brief on a small block within a cozy neighborhood cul-de-sac. Our clients sought to respect the existing single level character of the suburban court by minimizing the visual impact of their double-story home. Timber screens were used as a device to soften the solid rendered walls behind and to unify the facade.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Peter BennettsThe downward sloping external timber screen compresses the frontage, giving the illusion of the house bending toward the ground. A spacious first-floor balcony, enriched with potted plants, faces the street to create natural rather than the built skyline. The balustrade’s lowest point faces the street, and combined with the sculptural entry canopy gives a gentle nod to the surrounding houses. A desire to avoid harsh materials prompted an environmentally friendly interior that uses oils instead of paints, polished concrete slab, and naturally oiled spotted gum stairs and flooring.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe design utilizes solar energy, northern orientation, cross-ventilation, exposed concrete floor, batten shutters and rendered brick veneer walls to create substantial thermal mass and reduced energy use while maximizing occupant comfort. Through an ethical and gentle approach, this architectural solution reconciles the needs of a modern family with a desire to respect and enhance their existing neighborhood. Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessSBF Tower / Hans Hollein & Christoph MonscheinSelected ProjectsThe Cartographies of the Brazilian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2018Articles Share Northcote House 02 / STAR Architecture Architects: STAR Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Projects Houses Photographs Northcote House 02 / STAR ArchitectureSave this projectSaveNorthcote House 02 / STAR ArchitectureSave this picture!© Peter BennettsCurated by Fernanda Castro Share CopyAbout this officeSTAR ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneAustraliaPublished on July 30, 2018Cite: “Northcote House 02 / STAR Architecture” 30 Jul 2018.

Pigs to Join the Dairy Cows at Fair Oaks Indiana

Posted On Jun 14 2021 by

first_img SHARE Home News Feed Pigs to Join the Dairy Cows at Fair Oaks Indiana The official ground breaking at Legacy Farms near Rensselaer Tuesday afternoon drew hundreds from agriculture and the local community. Construction is well underway for the working pig farm that will allow visitors a direct look down into the operation when it opens roughly a year from now.Indiana Lt. Governor Becky Skillman told HAT the ceremony marks a win in many ways.“Every sector within agriculture supports one another and that was very obvious by this attendance. I think public celebrations are important for a number of reasons. This is a visible sign of confidence in the local economy, confidence in the state economy, confidence in the future of agriculture and pork production.”Belstra Milling is building and will operate Legacy Farms. Vice President Malcolm DeKryger explains it is the very first pig farm designed from scratch to show people pig production without getting in the way of the process.“All production happens on the lower level. Ten feet up above we will have a mezzanine that will reach out into the production building completely surrounded by glass. And from that skybox if you will, people can spend all the time that they want watching our employees breed animals, move sows around, help the farrowing or the birthing process occur, as well as day one care of baby pigs.”Mike Platt is the executive director of Indiana Pork and he also serves as the president of the Fair Oaks Pig Adventure board of directors, the company educating visitors and conducting tours. Platt says they intend to make this northwest Indiana stop a national destination.“We’re really looking at this as the location in the United States for people to learn about pig production and to come see firsthand what pig production is all about. So we really have focused this as a national destination which has really caught the attention and the interest of the National Pork Board who are a major funder of the educational piece of this.”Fair Oaks Dairy has been open since 2004 and draws in a half million annually. CEO Gary Corbett says with hopes for beef, poultry, fish and even crops joining the Fair Oaks experience one day, attendance should jump significantly.“We hope to have all of the animal groups here by the end of the summer of 2014, then we’re hoping in that next five year period we’ll be up to 2 million visitors. We don’t think that’s a stretch at all,” he told HAT.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/Pig-Adventure-coming-to-Fair-Oaks.mp3|titles=Pig Adventure coming to Fair Oaks]Click here for a Legacy Farms fact sheet.In the HAT interview DeKryger looks back on how the idea for a pig operation at Fair Oaks started and the new technology that will be employed:[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/Malcolm-DeKryger-at-Legacy-groundbreaking.mp3|titles=Malcolm DeKryger at Legacy groundbreaking]Mike Platt describes the pork industry support the pig adventure is receiving:[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/Mike-Platt-at-FOPA-groundbreaking.mp3|titles=Mike Platt at FOPA groundbreaking]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/Pig-Adventure-coming-to-Fair-Oaks.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS SHARE By Andy Eubank – Aug 1, 2012 Facebook Twitter Pigs to Join the Dairy Cows at Fair Oaks Indiana Previous articleEstate Tax Exemption About To CloseNext articleNRCS Announces Special Sign Up for Drought Relief Andy Eubank Facebook Twitterlast_img read more


Bill Cosby found guilty in retrial on aggravated indecent assault charges

Posted On May 18 2021 by

first_imgMark Makela/Getty Images(NORRISTOWN, PA) — Comic and entertainer Bill Cosby has been found guilty on all three counts in his retrial on charges of aggravated indecent assault, stemming from a non-consensual sexual encounter 14 years ago.The jury of seven men and five women in Norristown, Pennsylvania delivered the verdict during their second day of deliberations that began late Wednesday morning, following a two-week trial. Eighty-year-old Cosby faced three counts of aggravated indecent assault for the alleged 2004 drugging and molesting Andrea Costand, the former director of operations for the women’s basketball team at Temple University, where for years Cosby was a trustee and major financial donor.Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison for each count. Cosby lowered his head and took a deep breath when the verdicts were announced, while three of his accusers who attended the trial burst into loud tears of joy. Constand remained stoic as the verdicts were read, and only later embraced supporters and the other accusers in the same court where nearly one year ago, a mistrial was declared during Cosby’s trial on the same charges after jurors weren’t able to reach a unanimous verdict.  Then as now, Cosby pleaded not guilty and has repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing.Cosby did become clearly angry as District Attorney Kevin Steele insisted that Cosby’s bail be raised from the current $1 million.  Steele told the judge he wanted the bail increased because Cosby was a flight risk, at which point Cosby yelled at Steele, “He doesn’t have a plane you a**hole!” Cosby remains free on his current bail, with instructions not to leave the country.Of dozens of women who have come forward in recent years to accuse the entertainer of similar assaults stretching back to the 1960s, only Constand’s allegations fall within the statute of limitations.Prosecution arguments in the trial portrayed Cosby as a calculating predator, while the defense presented him as the victim of a multimillion-dollar frame-up.The primary difference between Cosby’s first trial and his second was that at last summer’s trial the judge in the case, O’Neill, allowed only one additional accuser to testify and support Constand’s account, based on the prosecution’s argument that it needed to show a common scheme or pattern to Cosby’s alleged assault of Constand.  This time around, the judge allowed five such women to take the stand.Another new element in this year’s trial was O’Neill’s decision to allow the testimony of Marguerite “Margo” Jackson, a former colleague of Constand’s at Temple, who testified that Constand once mused about framing a celebrity. The judge had rejected her testimony in the first trial as hearsay. Constand has denied Jackson’s claims.The prosecution also revealed for the first time, with Cosby’s permission, that he’d paid Constand $3.38 million to settle the sexual assault lawsuit she brought against him in 2005.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
