They will need to have a core Tier 1 capital ratio – the ratio between capital equity and risk weighted assets – of at least seven per cent. Standard Chartered already has a ratio of nine per cent, which will rise to 11 per cent after the rights issue. However, the bank says new rules will re-weight of some of its assets, slashing a percentage point from this and local jurisdictions could require an additional 2.5 per cent.Chief executive Peter Sands said the new funds will allow the bank to “continue to seize opportunities across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.” He added it will “safeguard the bank’s ability to take advantage of the opportunities in our markets while meeting the anticipated changes in the regulatory world.” He said the new capital rules could have constrained its asset growth unless new cash was raised. A source close to the bank dismissed suggestions it was responding to a possible bid by JP Morgan.Standard Chartered recently posted record first half profits of $3.12bn (£1.97bn).JONATHAN WILCOXJP MORGANHigh-flying equities banker Jonathan Wilcox is heading up the team advising on the rights issue at JP Morgan.It is perhaps easier to spot the deals he hasn’t advised on over the last two years. He is no stranger to rights issues. Earlier this year he advised Prudential on its failed plan raise £13bn in new funds from its shareholders, as part of its bid to buy AIA from its US owners in a $35.5bn deal.He had more success working alongside fellow JP Morgan bankers Edmund Byers and Charles Pretzlik advising Balfour Beatty in its share placement last year.Also in 2009 he advised Rio Tinto, Great Portland Estates and Lonmin on their rights issues.Wilcox has also worked on a number of big IPOs, advising Jupiter on its pricing in the lead up to its £750m flotation this summer. Also working on the float for JP Morgan were Tim Wise and Edward Squire.Before this he advised New Look on its flotation, which was later pulled.Legal adviser on the deal was Nilufer von Bismarck from Slaughter & May. She advises on a host of corporate deals including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and IPOs.

With the likelihood of Hurricane Matthew nearing the coasts of east-central and northeast Florida later this week, the St. Johns River Water Management District reminds property owners to be prepared for heavy rains by cleaning debris from storm drains and reporting clogged ditches to local governments in advance of the storm. The public also is encouraged to bookmark the storm page on the district’s website, for easy access to flooding information, water levels and other resources. “The district’s website is an excellent resource for information and links to flood statements and warnings, river stages, and local government emergency contacts,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “Our emergency operations team is closely monitoring the storm’s path and water levels so we can provide information to the public and be prepared to assist our local government partners and other regional and state agencies as needed, should Hurricane Matthew impact Florida.”Water storage is available in both the Upper St. Johns River and Upper Ocklawaha River. Structures, such as locks, spillways, pump stations, levees and canals, in the headwaters of the St. Johns River in Brevard and Indian River counties and in the Harris Chain of Lakes in Lake County are the only controls the district has of water levels. Even without the hurricane making landfall in Florida, the district urges the public to use caution when visiting district lands over the next week, as saturated soils and strong winds can cause trees to be uprooted and limbs to break and fall without warning. Some lands may be closed based on conditions.

The plot on which this three-story home is built lies slightly below the level of the surrounding area on the edge of a single-family residential district. The response to this difference in level is an intelligently designed semibasement, above which soar a full floor and an attic. The emblematic facade and the carefully dimensioned saddle roof projecting on all sides add an archaic touch to the building. It’s kind of presented on a pedestal.Save this picture!© Valentin JeckSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Valentin JeckThe eastern part of the semibasement accommodates car parking spaces, on the western side an apartment is stretching over the entire length of the building. In each the upper and the attic floor, two apartments are located which open to three sides. Well defined horizontal layers dominate the visible sides: the partly hidden semibasement, the wide open upper floor and the elegantly tailored roof. Minimally protruding profiles and small plastic [three-dimensional] interventions accentuate the facades, while the wood of the parquet floors and of the sliding shutters forms a warm counterpart to the fair-faced concrete.Save this picture!Courtesy of Felippi Wyssen ArchitectsIn the interior, the access areas have been kept to a minimum while the living quarters have been generously conceived. A wide column grid characterises all floor plans and provides for structural affinities between the different levels. The construction volume draws additional suspense from the alternation between loggias and inside spaces. Floor-to-ceiling doors and passages create intriguing perspectives and attractive spatial volumes. Furthermore, the ground-floor flat benefits from the passage to the green external area which is sheltered by its favourable position.Save this picture!© Valentin JeckProject gallerySee allShow lessMaison Edouard François Transforms Sports Stadium Into Residential and Commercial Gr…Architecture NewsGorki / RuetempleSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Muttenz, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Bread and wine have long been seen as a pretty decent pairing – not least since this coupling was cemented when it was put to good use at a certain dinner table some 2,000 years ago.But the biblical significance of this classic bakery and booze combo has escaped one church and its parishioners in London, who are attempting to block the opening of a bakery that sells wine.London’s Evening Standard reported this week that the Roman Catholic St Anselm and St Cecilia church is trying to block entrepreneur Jonathan Dalton from opening a nearby artisan bakery in Holborn, called the Fleet River Bakery, amid fears its plan to also sell alcohol would lead to “revelry”.They have hired a lawyer to fight the application and parish priest Father David Barnes was said to have met the alcohol licence application with “anxiety” and “horror”.Dalton, whose business would join the likes of bakery-restaurant St John’s Bread & Wine and Italian bakery Rocco Princi in offering alcohol in the capital, has already had one licence turned down in January and is planning to petition Camden Council over the issue.He is reported to have said: “It has been an absolute nightmare. I want to bring back artisan baking to central London and serve the odd glass of wine or organic cider. Unfortunately the church … sees alcohol as being evil. But there is a pub two metres from the front door of their annex, and they don’t object to that. We are not looking to be a late-night bar.”What next? A church objecting to the opening of a carpenter’s perhaps?
Follow the Foreign Office on Twitter @foreignoffice and Facebook During her visit to Côte D’Ivoire (11 and 12 February), Minister Baldwin visited the headquarters of the Transnational Organized Crime Unit (UCT) to inspect a recent seizure of more than 600 kilos of ivory and pangolin scales by the Ivorian authorities. She handed over technical equipment gifted by the National Crime Agency to enable the UCT to improve the identification of illegal commodities during operations.On the Illegal Wildlife Trade, Minister Baldwin said: As a long-standing friend and Commonwealth partner, the UK wants to see urgent steps taken on all sides to de-escalate current tensions. President Biya’s announcement in his New Year speech of steps to rebuild trust, resume dialogue, and allow decentralisation are a welcome start – but only a start. Cameroonians need to come together to talk and to secure a peaceful resolution. The extent of trafficking of wild and endangered animals is shocking. I am hugely impressed with the work here in Côte D’Ivoire to prevent wildlife being smuggled out of the country to overseas markets, and I am pleased that the UK is able to support these efforts. Stronger regional and global cooperation is needed to prevent traffickers from profiting from this trade. That is why the UK is hosting a conference in October to bring countries together to ensure we take action collectively to tackle the despicable illegal wildlife trade. During her visit to Cameroon, the Minister discussed issues around democracy, security, prosperity and human rights in meetings with Prime Minister Philemon Yang and other senior ministers, as well as with representatives from Cameroonian and UK businesses and civil society organisations.The Minister visited a girls’ school supported by a UK charity as well as the Lake Ossa Reserve, a Zoological Society of London and Darwin sponsored conservation project, which is an important refuge for West African manatees and other freshwater biodiversity.Minister Baldwin said: The UK and Cameroon share historic ties, and I have seen ample evidence that those ties – of business partnership, security co-operation, and support to education and wildlife conservation – continue to strengthen. As Côte D’Ivoire is a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, Minister Baldwin held discussions on upcoming Security Council matters with President Ouattara and other senior ministers. She also met President of the African Development Bank, Akinwumi Adesina, to discuss the Bank’s plans for inclusive growth across Africa.Further information Email [email protected] Minister for Africa at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for International Development, Harriett Baldwin, visited West Africa between 11 and 14 February. On her first trip to the region since taking up this role, the Minister visited Cameroon and Côte D’Ivoire.During her visit to Cameroon (13 and 14 February), the Minister visited the Anglophone region to discuss the ongoing dispute. Meeting with senior members of the Cameroonian Government, traditional rulers, human rights groups, and members of civil society organisations, she encouraged restraint and for a de-escalation of current tensions.On the situation in the Anglophone regions, Minister Baldwin said: Media enquiries Follow Minister for Africa Harriett Baldwin on Twitter @hbaldwin For journalists Follow the Foreign Office on Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn

Created by Volker Springel, group leader at HITS, Arepo generates a full-fledged simulation of the universe, taking as input only the observed afterglow of the big bang and evolving forward in time for 14 billion years.“We took all the advantages of previous codes and removed the disadvantages,” explained Springel.“Our simulations improve over previous ones as much as the Giant Magellan Telescope will improve upon any telescope that exists now,” said Debora Sijacki of the CfA and a fellow at the Harvard College Observatory.(When completed later this decade, the Giant Magellan Telescope’s 24.5-meter aperture will make it the largest telescope in the world.)One of Arepo’s key advantages is the geometry it uses. Previous simulations divided space into a bunch of cubes of fixed size and shape. Arepo uses a grid that flexes and moves in space to match the motions of the underlying gas, stars, dark matter, and dark energy.The simulations ran on Harvard’s Odyssey high-performance supercomputer, using in total 1,024 processor cores. This fast machine allowed the scientists to compress 14 billion years into only a few months — an endeavor that would have kept a desktop computer busy for hundreds of years!The team’s future goals include simulating much larger volumes of the universe at unprecedented resolution, thus creating the largest and most realistic model of the universe ever made. Scientists at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) and their colleagues at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) have invented a new computational approach that can accurately follow the birth and evolution of thousands of galaxies over billions of years. For the first time, it’s now possible to build a universe from scratch that brims with galaxies like those we observe around us.“We’ve created the full variety of galaxies we see in the local universe,” said CfA’s Mark Vogelsberger, a postdoctoral fellow in the Harvard College Observatory.Our cosmic neighborhood is littered with majestic spiral galaxies such as the Andromeda, the Pinwheel, and the Whirlpool. Spirals are common, but previous simulations had trouble creating them. Instead, they produced lots of blobby galaxies clumped into balls, without the broad disks and outstretched arms of a typical spiral.

BRO: How did get started in fly fishing?OW: The very first fish I ever caught was a little brookie and all I can remember was being amazed by the colors and unique patterns on his back. I remember thinking that I just wanted to see more and couldn’t do that watching from the river banks. I soon realized that the only way I could gain skills and experience was to just go out there by myself and keep trying. I started working night shift around that time and found it so easy to get off work and drive to the nearest river and cast a few lines. It became not just a habit for me but somewhat of a way to unwind from a busy night.BRO: Any favorite rivers?OW: WNC has so many different types of rivers and streams to offer to an angler that it is hard to pick a favorite. Plus if I told you my secret would be out. I can say, the small the better…BRO: What is it about fly fishing that you find most appealing?OW: The community built around fly fishing has to be one of the most supportive, knowledgable, and enthused group of individuals I have ever been apart of. This community is not just built on skills or experience. It is made of excited, passionate individuals who have a love for the small things.BRO: Have you done any fishing outside of the Blue Ridge?OW: I grew up spin reel fishing in the Boundary Waters up in Minnesota and Canada for Norther Pike and Walleye. Now that is whole other ball game!BRO: If you could only fish one fly for the rest of your life, what would it be?OW: One fly to rule them all… well my choice would have to be a dry fly, specifically a Caddis fly. For me, dry fly fishing is one of the most attractive style of fishing there is. Being able to sneak up on a little pocket of water, lightly cast your fly, watch it land and in seconds see a trout surface for it has to be one of the most exciting moments I’ve experienced.BRO: What are some of your favorite outdoor activities aside from fly fishing?OW: I’m very much a seasonal person. So during the summer my pup and I will earn our miles by doing some early morning trail running in search of a sunrise. During the winter I do a lot of hiking to find little creeks for the summer months. I always have my camera near me and, more often than not, find it difficult to not snap a couple shots wherever I am.BRO: What advice would you give to a would-be fly fisher who hasn’t quite made the plunge?OW: Don’t be afraid to step out into the river by yourself! Having to teach myself for the most part was the best thing I could have done for myself. You learn so much more with trial and error, losing countless flies and having days where you seemed to catch more tree limbs than fish. And when the day comes when you need a river buddy to show you around, ask for advice, or just to share a laugh with, don’t be afraid to ask. This month’s Instagram Takeover features Western North Carolina native and fly fishing enthusiast Olivia Williams. Olivia, who lives in the Blue Ridge Mountain town of Brevard, North Carolina, has been fly fishing for a little over a year now. During that time—a period she describes as a long—strenuous learning process, she has documented her journey as a budding angler every step of the way. Born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina, Olivia is a self-taught angler. When she’s not fishing she spends her days working at the Asheville-based Hunter Banks Fly Fishing where she works in communications and marketing, maintaining and cultivating the shop’s social media presence in addition to her own.“The guys here at Hunter Banks have been great,” Olivia said. “They really took me in and showed me the ropes of the Western North Carolina fly fishing scene.”You can keep up with Olivia’s adventures here, and stay tuned to our Instagram account all week as we share some her favorite adventures.[divider]A Q & A with Olivia[/divider]
Court steps up effort to build unified family courts Troubled families often come into Florida courts with wide-ranging prob-lems only to see them divided among different judges because they involve different legal issues: divorce, children in need of services, delinquency, to name only a few. It can be a bureaucratic puzzle for people who need help more than hindrance.Not in the Florida of tomorrow.In keeping with promises made during his inaugural address in July, Chief Justice Harry Lee Anstead is taking steps toward creating a Florida unified family court — one that can hear and decide the range of legal issues that may affect individual families and children. Chief Justice Anstead is calling on everyone in the legal system to help out, which has already prompted a workshop at the Univerity of Florida Levin College of Law that began examining how law schools can train future lawyers to better address the multiple needs of children and families served by the courts.“Our courts should consider themselves privileged that society places its most troub-led children and their families at our doorsteps,” Chief Justice Anstead said. “It is a privilege because it gives us the chance to right wrongs and prevent smaller problems from becoming bigger ones. We need to do a better job in making sure that our courts do not complicate things through unnecessary bureaucracy.”Anstead recently signed an administrative order creating a new Steering Committee on Families and Children in the Court and has asked it to develop ways of implementing the unified family court concept, which the Supreme Court endorsed in a 2001 opinion. The committee will be chaired Justice Barbara Pariente, who was one of the lead participants in the Gainesville work-shop and wrote the opinion.“The legal system should focus on the needs of children who are involved in legal cases,” said Justice Pariente, who has worked on improving Florida’s family courts since her appointment to the high court in 1997. “They should refer families to resources that will make relationships stronger, coordinate their cases to provide consistent results, and strive to leave families in a better condition than when they entered the system.”The idea of a unified family court has been studied for several years in Florida, and some other states and Canada already have begun creating them. Several unified family court pilot programs are operating in the trial courts throughout the state, and courts elsewhere in the state are taking steps toward implementing the unified system. The new steering committee will study these programs and develop ideas for new ones, eventually making recommendations for a unified court in every Florida community.The committee’s term lasts through June 2004, and its membership includes representatives of the courts and other agencies involved with children and family law matters.“The goal is to achieve long-lasting solutions to the families’ problems while minimizing emotional scarring,” Justice Pariente said.
